Some elders are really convinced they have the Truth.
The Society encourages elders to revisit inactive ones
who are those called for the most part "faders" here.
The Society doesn't like having "faders" they need some
sort of closure. Either the person is reactivated or
deactivated. There's no other choice, if you are a
fader you are an almost forgotten landmine that
could go off... simply by sharing what you know
with other people. It is a danger the Society doesn't
want to allow. If a person is a fader and responds
negatively to the visit they could be considered to
be disassociated. That brings closure, anyone who
is still active will better not try and seek contact with
him or her.
It is all a matter of control. Some elders' lives are too
busy to bother and they can hardly control what they
have on their plate. If you happen to be in a congregation
where most elders are hardpressed for time and feel
exhausted they'll most likely leave you alone unless
there's some complaint.
