I just read this news from Korea and I can’t find the proper word to convey this feeling of amusement that I’m experiencing.
It’s no secret that the church leadership has no idea what they are doing or in which direction to go in terms of working to establish God’s nation on earth (remember CIG?). We’ve seen the direction changed how many times the last 4-5 years? (FFWPU, then UC, then LLM, then Freedom Society, then cancel LLM, then cancel FS, then cancel UC, then back to FFWPU, all the meanwhile UPF is unclear what it is or what it does, and on and on…) Even some church leaders admit to a lack of inspiration nowadays (BTW, out of curiosity, is Dan a “church leader”?).
The course of events throughout the years went full circle from church leaders denying HJN’s (H1) work and method of work as being off-center and negative and too humanistic (or whatever), to outright attacking it through concerted campaigns, to not saying much about it (i.e., the silent phase), to, finally, copying it. Yes, they’ve sort of gone full circle. Their “if you can’t beat them, copy them” mentality can be seen in the latest events…
Alright, but enough of my comments:The latest idea of the church is to give out a peace award (“Sunhak Peace Award”) and hand out “1 million dollars” to the organization or person who “contributed to humanity’s well-being”. Maybe there will be more details in the future, but for now that’s all the article says.
Back to my comments:
Why stop at 1 million dollars? Why not give out 8 million dollars to 8 organizations? Or 20 million. Why not buy out that organization and own their initiatives? Still, I must admit that it is quite magnanimous of the church to give out money like that. They are not only generous to their lawyers, but also to society at large.
Who decides what organization/person contributed the most to society? What is the standard or benchmark? Who nominates and who chooses? Is it limited to Korean organizations? What is the criteria for those who are on the board of the entity that makes these decisions? Is it limited to Korean church leaders? Somehow I feel the answers to these questions will not be necessarily inspiring.
I could keep on rambling, but I’ll stop there. (I only ramble because I care.)
