"There was no governing body in the first century CE. Therefore, the present Governing Body has no legacy and should be dissolved." - p. 135. 😲 I know what you're all thinking: 'This is fake news, a hoax. He'd never say that.' But the book is available from his own Awatu Publishers via email for $10 (see Reddit link below). It's was only released a little over a week ago and is a hefty 337 pages long. He relates his long history in the org., that his issues have been brewing over the last 15 years, and what he says gels with what I know from various other sources - some of which are off-grid. While Furuli still believes JWs are the true religion and many core doctrines are correct (including 607!), he blasts the current GB for losing their way, being power- and money-grabbing, amongst other complaints, and he scripturally dismantles the FDS doctrine. He thinks the organization should be restructured so that it is theocratic like in the good old post-1971 days (I'm paraphrasing) rather than hierarchical like the Catholic church (yes, he refers to the Menlo Park court case). He says he approached the GB in the spirit of Matt. 18, and added that, "The Governing Body received the book, and the members were informed that if the basic problems discussed in the book could be settled inside the organization, the book would not be published. The GB has refused to communicate with me and therefore the book has been published." - p. 14. He knows full well what will happen to him which, I guess, will prove his point about the GB being autocratic and beyond questioning or correction. Did anyone expect this bombshell? I certainly didn't! 😆 Here's the link to the Reddit discussion:
