UBF published a rather odd looking diagram based on 1 Timothy recently. As I read through 1 Timothy and reviewed the diagram, I found the diagram to be an accurate picture of what 1 Timothy might look like.
I do not think this is the only picture, but it does depict some key teachings in the book of 1 Timothy.
This diagram troubled me greatly though. So I asked some friends to describe their reaction. I learned from their responses that the diagram looks ok as far as what a church structure should look like based on 1 Timothy (I personally would include Galatians and other Scripture though). The problem is that the diagram does not reflect the current structure of UBF. This prompted me to draw my own picture of the UBF structure (based on spending 24 years in the organization).
These two diagrams visually tell the story of what I and my friends have been saying for a long time: How does UBF get from its current structure to the structure God presents in Scripture?
