Out of the overflow of the heart...

(Related: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

If you criticize Sam Lee, UBF's version of the "Great Leader," some in UBF will likely tell you that he is dead and that you are just beating a dead horse. But then they have this Founder's Day thing every year to prop up this "dead horse" and praise him to the heavens. Here's a comment I posted on the latest attempt by a UBF veteran on "Founder's Day" to rationalize Sam Lee's "diarrhea of the mouth":

Shafer praises Sam Lee as someone who "spoke his mind" and "spoke the truth" without fear. What a whitewash, displaying the characteristic UBF ignorance of scripture where it suits them, something they accuse "topical" teachers of doing. (1) Jesus said that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. (2) Samples of what was in Sam Lee's heart can be seen here and here. This is not a man who spoke the truth. This is a man who poured forth as much garbage as he wanted from his lips, with much malice and little love, because no one stopped him. I endured that for years.

An archived thread reveals more of the overflow of Sam Lee's heart. Ironically, that was Sam Lee insulting Shafer's former "sheep" in a Sunday "sermon." Where did Sam Lee get the material, the dirt that he tried to throw over Holly Lord in that "sermon?" He got it from Joe Shafer, of course.


(1) My own mother, at the first UBF "Founder's Day" 3 years ago, declared in a praiseology that "Dr. Samuel Lee was a man of truth." One wonders what these people's notion of truth is.

(2) Notice how closely Jesus ties the overflow of a person's heart (one's words) with the tree and its fruit two verses earlier in Luke 6:43. Our words are the fruit. Personally, I saw Sam Lee do much more damage with heartless, crude and domineering words than he did with fists or baseball bats.
