Hello. This is my story of why I left UBF: the long version. In it I will use peoples’ real names unless otherwise noted.
How did I get involved with a Korean diaspora cult called UBF? I wasn’t fished but a classmate of mine was. He pressured me into coming and that is how I met my enemy for life Clifford Tylin “Ty” Rothrock. I went to bible studies because I got nothing better to do and also I was a bit curious about it. I continued while my classmate stopped after awhile.
In 2014 I became brainwashed and indoctrinated. I made “friends” such as Sarah Baik and Saleh Muriezn. Bascially I was plugged into UBF’s matrix.
In 2015 I began my journey out of El Camino UBF after getting shattered with reality checks and events. [There were many events that lead me to leave the chapter. But in this story I will go over the main events that impacted me the most.] The first reality check was right after the wedding of Robert Crane and Iliana Garcia in January 2015. It wasn’t the wedding itself but what happened right after. The Saturday after the wedding right before bible study (b.s.) Rothrock got on my case just because I was taking photos with several members. I tend to take picture at special events to cherish the moments. At moment the matrix was ripping apart. From that moment on I came to despise photography.Later on in the middle of the year that was when I started to blog my experiences. I’m the first person to have done so. A year later I was betray by a so-called “brother”. Rothrock came up to me after worship service all whiney and cry-babyish and ask to remove the blog. Instead I just privatized it and resume blogging.[There was word that it was Bianca Arreola’s husband that betrayed me but this has not been confirmed.]
In 2016 is when I became pragmatic about leaving the cult. Another reality check hit me. Rothrock gave me the direction to ride with Elva Aldrete [whom would later on harass my family the last week of 2016] and my sister in order to get my sister to come to Friday night testimony sharing. I was extremely pissed off. Rothrock, some of the other seniors, and John Baik got on my case about my “lust problem” and “marriage problem” [which is total bogus] 93+ times for 93 consecutive weeks since mid-January 2015 and yes I kept count. And now all of a sudden it is fine for me to ride with a “sister”?! This is the first time I put my foot down and refused to obey Rothrock. He had an alternative motive in getting me and my sister to carpool with Elva. I have 2 theories on what his real scheme is. [Note: they are theories]
- He could have been preparing my “marriage by faith” in order to keep me there. The older members suspected that I was going to leave the chapter soon
- He was trying to turn the church against me by having me seen with Elva. At the time not only was I deprogramming from UBF’s matrix I was only trying to reach out to other members of the chapter.
The biggest reality check of all was how John Baik tried very hard to destroy my friendship with Sarah Baik. I actually submitted a detailed article to Eddie several months back. Here’s the link: http://ubfriends.net/a-friendship-fractured/ It was what John Baik said and his response to the mass email sent to the chapter which became the final straw for me. October 31, 2016 was the last time I would ever set foot on UBF ground ever again. As of this day I see Sarah more or less as a bystander. As for my friendship with her it is now nothing more than sad memories.
