This gives message board participants a better understanding of the group in question, which has a deeply troubled history.
The group has been called a "cult" and lost a court case that revolved around charges of "brainwashing."
The judgement against the church was upheld all the way the US Supreme Court.
The key to meaningful change for this group would be accountability or its leaders, such as through a democratically elected church government and an annually published budget that details all salaries, compensation and expenses paid out from church funds.
An elected board could be required through the bylaws of the church corporate filings and constitution. This would typically require all members to vote by secret ballot to elect board members to fixed terms, who would stand for election again when their term expired. The church board would be able to discipline and if necessary fire the pastor or any staff and decide upon the budget.
An annually published budget should be distributed to all contributing members and could be independently audited.
Without this type of objective change whatever the group claims it has done to change may be merely cosmetic and not really that significant.
