It is hard to understand how the EB/PBCC could declare victory to their members when a regulator has had to tell them not to act with vindictiveness to those who are about to leave or who have left. It is also an indictment of the capricious nature of their entirely unaccountable international leadership, who are described in the draft deeds as the ‘Ministers of the Lord in the Recovery’ (length of title appears to be in inverse proportion to compassion), that the doctrines and the leaders have to be nailed down in a binding document due to their well-known characteristic of moving the doctrinal goal posts to wrong foot people and to appalling effect.
The Charity Commission has had a hard time politically over the last couple of years, not least because of its attempts to regulate this tiny but wealthy and disproportionately harmful organisation. Its resources are limited. I do hope that they are able to monitor compliance with appropriate vigour. I am sure that they will need all the help that they can get.
