Should a pastor who is deposed for preaching against objective justification or practicing open communion be permitted to return as a LCMS pastor if he repents and promises to preach objective justification and practice closed communion?

Talk about a hypothetical! How many times has a pastor been deposed for preaching against objective justification and practicing open Communion in the LCMS? Although, the WELS did throw out a guy who denied objective justification. He went to ELDoNA and ELDoNA quickly adopted his error as their own.
So here is what I suggest. If a guy is deposed for preaching against objective justification and he repents and promises never to do it again, he should, as penance, be required to spend, say, two hours a day for a month visiting with the "bishop" of ELDoNA, trying to persuade him to return to the orthodox Lutheran position on this.
