What is wrong with UBF private revelation about marriage

Views expressed do not necessarily represent those of University Bible Fellowship

Here is an old draft I wrote about marriage by faith possibly last updated on April 28, 2015, I am posting this now on 2018 February 2

The article explains what is wrong with third private revelation when it comes to marriage.  The Bible does not list who is supposed to marry who, when UBF elders claim to receive such revelation it is an extra Biblical teaching and they clearly are not Sola Scriptura people who go by the Bible alone in spite of claims otherwise.  Actually no one goes by the Bible alone.

UBF dating break up policy vs Deuteronomy 22 and 1 Corinthians 7

Views expressed do not necessarily represent the official teachings of University Bible Fellowship nor any other current or ex member of University Bible Fellowships point of view

There was a woman I saw give a testimony in front of a large audience at UBF.  I am pretty sure the testimony was filtered by UBF members to ensure it was OK to say by UBF standards and I am pretty sure she was in line with standard operating procedure at the time.

She said she prayed for her Bible student to break up with her boyfriend.  I want to address if Bible teachers should be encouraging people to break up with their boyfriend or girlfriend, encouraging them to marry or being neutral.  I suggest that encouraging them to marry and being neutral can be supported but not encouraging them to break up.  When I say encourage to marry I am not talking about forced marriage, but suggesting marriage as an option.

What is good about matchmaking instead of dating

Views expressed do not necessarily represent the official teachings of University Bible Fellowship nor any other current or ex member of University Bible Fellowships point of view

The current dating system creates a lot of problems.  It makes consent vague.  People tend to touch each other with unclear boundaries and no explicit agreement stated before a community to have physical relations so that people can clearly know their physical relations were consensual.

Dating creates a vague situation that can lead to false rape accusations.  Alternatively, formally announcing marriage makes a implication before the community that people are agreeing to have physical relations with each other.

Dating also may put men and women at risk for date rape.  Yes men can be raped by women also not just the one way around.

Matchmaking may be used to avoid those problems with dating

Additionally matchmaking can have a screening mechanism if an entire community knew how someone behaved all their life where as in dating you might meet someone as a new person without knowing how they behaved when you were not around.

Matchmaking can also be abused in many ways but I am not discussing them here and it you want examples of matchmaking gone bad just do a internet search about problems with arranged marriages on your own.

I just want to say something positive about University Bible Fellowship pairing people I do not believe there method is all bad if a certain change was made

What is the limit on authority for husbands or parents

Articles here do not necessarily represent official UBF teaching or any other UBF member or ex members point of view

If you are a man imagine how a woman should answer the questions in relation to her husband.

Members of UBF often teach that children should obey parents and wives should obey their husbands.  In fact I bet you are so familiar with it you could find or write down the verses that teach that yourself.  If you can not ask your Bible teacher or Pastor to remind you or do a search for it on the internet.

Write a list of these verses on one sheet of paper


If you have a problem with me talk to me not UBFriends staff

To UBFriends staff if you need to modify this slightly or greatly  in the version posted on UBFriends to meet the censorship code in order to avoid threats feel free to do so I will retain the original uncensored post here.  If you prefer another means of dealing with controversial material such as me emailing you something then asking permission to post it let me know.  I see nothing here that technically violates the official rules you posted or the other extra rules you emailed me but the implications might really tick people off.  Also I tend to do these in a sleep deprived session in which I feel strongly compelled to write and do not always have it written best the first time.

https://marriagebyfaith.blogspot.com/2018/01/if-you-have-problem-with-me-talk-to-me.html


Complaints about controversial material to UBFriends staff has led me to the decision to relocate most of my material to a separate set of blogs.  Some people have been complaining to and even threatening UBFriends staff but not talking to me because of my material and the material of one other individual who will not be named by me.  Please leave UBFriends staff alone

Who really is pro rape here me or UBF?

Articles here do not necessarily represent official UBF teaching or any other UBF member or ex members point of view

Listen to or read a sermon By Pastor Ron Ward, your local UBF Pastor or Chapter director or whatever UBF leader you consider to be the most authoritative who is not in a Reform UBF type of group and count how many times he uses the New International Version and how many times he uses other translations

For more than 100 Sermons and Bible Studies in English with our local Pastor and one to one Bible teachers in my Chapter, that I witnessed personally, they used the New International Version more than 50 percent of the time.  I had the same experience in regional conferences and world conferences in the United States with speakers and Bible teachers.  Not a single one of them departed from using NIV in more than 50% of the Bible Verses of any sermon from which I had access to the manuscripts that I can remember even one time possibly excluding plagiarism of other sources for their sermons that used other translations.

New International Version was the standard

But in Deuteronomy 22 rape is promoted in the New International Version translation which is the UBF standard and I have seen zero articles by current or ex members of UBF opposing this pro rape teaching excluding my own articles

I do not mean any disrespect here to people who are actually doing what they should be doing.  If you have been contacting a third party because a lack of my contact information my email is below.


After I painstakingly explain what is wrong with the pro rape translation of Deuteronomy 22, I am accused of writing pro rape articles

Before accusing me of writing pro rape articles do your own work and explain why the translation your Church endorses is wrong about rape!  Or do you support the pro rape translation?  How many articles have you written about this?



I have seen zero such articles



Do you also have a problem with how I interpreted Deuteronomy 21 then write what you think it means and post a link to your blog or video in the comments below

Since my work is not good enough write your own 

You could address what this self proclaimed atheist said in the video below

Or address how it is wrong for UBF to actually do rape via a third party by deception.  Has anyone else called marriage by faith rape by deception, post a link to the article your wrote?

http://marriagebyfaith.blogspot.com/2018/01/marriage-by-faith-is-rape-via-third.html

Are you still offended did I miscommunicate something then start writing better articles than me and save me the work of at least trying to do something and still being criticized.  


You will save me the effort of writing I can just post links to your articles if you do a better job than me 



Or could just a few parts be reworded due to typos or a lack of clarity on my part.  Please post a correction of how I could have worded things better or email me at the email below

Do not waste a third parties time complaining about my articles post a comment in the section below or email me

Or are you trying to censor free speech because you are too much of a intellectual coward to write a response article to me and you just want to shut my articles down so you complain to a third party instead of talking to me directly?

I am not sorry this blog is not an information control cult those tactics will not work here

Please send hate speech, praise, questions, comments and suggested writing corrections to me at

New International Version teaches rape is OK

28 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, 29 he shall pay her father fifty shekels[c] of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NIV

I refute the New International Version translation of Deuteronomy 22 below in the section entitled, Prohibition on forced marriage

Accessed online on 2018 January 19

And I do not necessarily say Deuteronomy 21 teaches rape either

Deuteronomy 21:10-14 might not be a forced marriage alternatively it could mean that they are permitted to marry a captive woman if the captive woman consents to marriage.

There are two reasons I do not believe Deuteronomy 21 supports an unethical form of forced marriage 1 that prisoners can consensually marry in the American jail system
