The paid campus advertisement banner that almost was but never has been because of legal concerns

If my memory is correct the Pastor made a very bad decision that nearly resulted in the group losing it’s club status on campus although I thought they might be going to be banned from campus at the time. I was not attending group meetings at this time but heard about it from a third party. I wrote this article on my opinion of banning UBF from campuses at that time. I am tempted to say my views on marriage by faith were naive then based on my writing but I also wrote an article refuting it and I think I simply did not put as much nuance as I should have and should have included the word “fraud,” in describing marriage by faith. At the time I remember telling someone they should openly put on their recruitment literature and websites, “we do arranged marriages and do not allow dating if you join our group,” and then I would be OK with what they were doing provided they give that and certain other information up front. I do not know what part 2 was going to be.
The article is below. I wrote it in 2015 and edited it in 2018 February

9 When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, “Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?”
“Let me inherit a double portion of your spirit,” Elisha replied.
10 “You have asked a difficult thing,” Elijah said, “yet if you see me when I am taken from you, it will be yours—otherwise, it will not.”
11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heavenin a whirlwind.

There was much talk of courtship being ok but dating being bad at my Chapter shortly before I leftI. Ironically someone was rebuked for finding a girlfriend even though they told me courting was ok. They were into I kissed dating goodbye, by Joshua Harris and said Billy Graham courted his wife. Here is a good article about what is wrong with courtship by someone else. And another two articles about the author of the book repenting that is having a change of mind.
