The studies are conducted with the idea of scamming people into the cancer. At first, they read just enough of the Bible to get people interested in the book. This book gradually introduces the problem (the "evil world"), and the solution. This is what motivates the person to continue with the study. At first, that is all that's required.
Soon in, however, other things become required. They will start asking the student to attend the boasting sessions. The book will continue being studied weekly, and about this time the conductor will start expecting the changes to be made. The big changes are first--outward manifestation of belonging to another church, attendance at another church, idols, spiritism, and holiday celebrations are among the first to go. Usually, they will be asked to comment at boasting sessions in the format that is directed by the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger (currently, comments that are effectively in the words of the paragraph).
A time passes. The student goes through the doctrines. They are introduced to the Trinity doctrine and why the Washtowel claims it false. They are told "the truth" about hellfire. They discuss 607 BC, and its ties with 1914, to get them into a panic to get them to do something without proper research. At some point, they are asked to get rid of things that might undermine their potential at the Theocraptic Misery "School(??)". They will be advised to quit smoking, break up or marry their partner if they have one, and discontinue all holiday celebrations they continue doing. This is when they often take things way beyond where they need to--like associating eating certain foods with celebrating holidays.
As the studies continue, and the student learns the doctrines with just enough Bible support to make it look genuine, they will soon be giving talks. Soon after, the conductor will start going through their private movie and music collections--any "bad" items have to be tossed. Before long, they discuss whether the student is ready--having busted up with, or married, their partner if any, quit smoking, discontinued all ties with other religions, and so on, they are called on to spread the cancer. At this point, they become "unbaptized publishers".
Soon after, they keep tabs on the student's field circus hours. If these continue, the person will be hounded into baptism. They then go through the baptismal questions. All the while, the weekly studies continue. When they get through the questions, the victim is baptized at the next a$$embly. The study continues until the material is exhausted. But, as soon as the person is baptized, they are required to recruit others--matters not whether they are successful, as long as all their time is wasted.
Now, some times things don't go as planned. Often, a student is never home. Sometimes they are regular but never prepare ahead. This can be seen when they get through a chapter where a change is required, but none happens. The conductor will start nagging, threatening with the destruction unless they make the needed changes. Sometimes they will regularly study but never attend the boasting sessions. I have seen a few students complete the Suffer Forever book and maybe attend one or two boasting sessions, if that. They will usually hound people at this point, because they are useless if they are not themselves wasting all their own time.
I never myself got anyone into the cancer. However, that didn't stop them from wasting my time--to them, the waste of my time was more important than whether or not I got anyone else to start wasting their own time.
