I personally would not do this by any means but then I am not this person and they have the free right to decide what is best for themselves.
As usual, I am in lockstep with Oldflame. The idea of getting reinstated by 'fooling' the elders is something I couldn't do, no matter what the incentive.
When I say I couldn't do it, I'm NOT speaking hypothetically. I had been out a couple of years when my beloved Grandpa turned 90 and was not in good health. Grandma was a sweetheart too. He was still sharp as a tack, and he had no problem visiting with me. But my Aunt & Uncle they lived with were like keepers of the flame about letting a DF'd grandson have access to them.
Sooo, in an emotional moment I made a rash decision to try to do what we're discussing here. I started with a elders meeting. Since I had been DF'd for apostasy they made me jump through hoops for an hour, lying my ass off about my coming to my senses about Jahs org. They never seemed to quite believe me and at the end they told me we could talk again after I had been a regular meeting attender for, oh, lets say, about a year! I thanked them and left. Biggest mistake I ever made in my life. Took me years to get over the fact that I had actually smooched their asses for an hour.
