Last year my cousing got Dfd.... he continued practicing his "sin" for 4 months... I spoke online with him during that year and since he was able to listen after our chats he opened his eyes regarding the cult, he lost faith in the bible and "Thank God" he lost him.
However he needed to go back since his wife is still in and his children were shunning him a little. He is extremely shy so he asked for helped. I told him that if he needed to go back he could do it within a year, that those suckers all they needed was a good a$$ kissing. He said he didnt know how to...
So I wrote a reinstatement letter for him... I did not write any details, cuz I didnt know them. I made it like 2 pages long... and I told him that he neede to submit it twice, first time after 6 months (that was to be rejected) and then to submit it again in 3 months, the same letter only this time adding the words sincerely, very, really, deeply extremely, etc etc etc blah blah blah.
So he did he was still sinning, he didnt believe in God and had zero respect for the elders...... he submitted his letter, the first one got rejected as expected and the second one got accepted..... It seems that Jehovah still listens to me :-)
so much for the holy spirit. Now he can take it easy and get his family out, one step at a time.
