What do they make you do to get reinstated?
- I've always known that df'd ones were supposed to go to all meetings and study for all parts yet there seams to be a lot of other things the elders make people do, what are they?
When I was trying to get reinstated the phrase "fruits that befit repentance" was repeated over and over by the elders before they would let me back in.
When I earnestly asked them for specific examples of these "fruits" they couldn't name any besides strict meeting attendance and having my books and magazines studied/underlined for them to see.
I've been before quite a few judicial committees and I've found the most effective method is to really stroke their egos. They like to know that you recognize the power they wield over you and that you submit to them completely.
- Depends on who you are, who you know and how much money you have. I saw a confessed pedophile reinstated after 8 months and a sister had to wait 8 years for adultery.
