What I expect is a little bit more, namely not only to deal with the abuse, but to question the basic paradigme of the UBF "system" which is the cause of these abuses, and to throw all these beloved traditions, doctrines and practices overboard which are not in line with the Bible. However, this will be hard, because, the higher you come in the UBF hiearchy of leadership, the more they are corrupt and put their own honor, their money, their position, their organization etc. above God and His word. They will rather die than change and give up anything of these things.

If they really would deal with the abuse and potential abuse in a mature and Godly way, as you suggested, then they would soon find that it is not only a matter of a few corrupt leaders, but also a matter of the system they created. So this would be the first step. But they will never do it. They know that it's the first step.
