Beliefs of the 2x2 religion
2x2s believe that their workers are the only true servants of God, all others are going to hell and that Jesus Christ is not God.
Many people who come to this website have been warned against it by workers. The workers look like nice, pleasant God-fearing individuals. How could such nice looking, friendly people be wrong?
Some claim that the 2x2s do not publish their creed. But whether the 2x2s write their creed on paper or not, it can be "read" by reading of what the workers do: what they preach and who they kick out of their meetings. There are many eye-witnesses and they hold great credibility especially in a court of law.
While sitting in their "gospel meetings", and after you get over the uncomfortable quietness in the beginning of the meetings, you may enjoy the melancholy, uninspired singing, the seemingly harmless soothing prayers and their quiet, subtil preaching which has an appearance of godliness. You may enjoy the soothing preaching and their use of allegories and feeling that you have come to find "the one true way", the "body of Christ", the "original church". But I would like to warn you friend, of their real beliefs.
You may say, "I've gone to meetings for years and haven't heard some of these beliefs." That may very well be true, or it may be true that you are in denial. I've been a worker and know their beliefs, having accepted and taught them before. And whether you've experience the many stories I've heard or not, you have to accept what the workers have done and accept all the people kicked out for believing the Bible above the workers teachings. The workers kick people out only through permission of the overseers.
If you don't believe what I've written here, then no problem. Just print this page and take it to the workers. Get their permission to record the conversation (doubt they would) and go down the beliefs I've listed. Do you feel the anxiety and fear already about this? Why? Doesn't this anxiety and fear tell you something about what you already know about them?
I am going to list their main beliefs and give a short summary first. A more detailed explanation of the beliefs can be found in the individual pages whose links are to the right.
The primary belief of the 2x2s is that the workers are the true servants of God. If you say and believe this, you should know that they believe that if you don't keep coming to meetings and profess, then you are going to hell. So if you accept them as true servants of God, then you have condemned Christians around the world as going to hell. This primary teaching of theirs is reason enough to know they are not of God.
1Jn_2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
You may say "I've never heard this in a meeting." And I agree. It's not openly taught. They have many unwritten rules (unwritten on paper) that are only written on their hearts by the workers.
Positive proof that this is their primary belief is found by their actions. And actions speak louder than words. Here is an example: If someone believes that Jesus Christ is God, then they will ask the person if they believe that they are the true servants of God (remember their doctrine that Jesus Christ is not God). If the person will not say that they are the only true servants of God, then the person is no longer allowed to speak in meetings.
The reason why the workers ask if you believe they are the only true servants of God is that if you don't, then they believe you are going to hell. They believe that you are no longer worthy of fellowship and they won't allow you to participate in meetings. Also, they are afraid of what will happen if people believe in Jesus Christ instead of them. They know their organization would fall apart because it is founded on sand. And it is falling apart anyway. Their numbers are steadily declining.
If you believe that the workers are the only true servants of God, then you call Jesus Christ a liar and claim that he is not God. Agreeing with the workers makes you partaker of their evil deeds. This is explained very clearly in John's second epistle:
2Jn 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
Another proof of their main belief is that you are not allowed to speak in meetings until you profess/ join. They want you to commit and profess before you can take part. And even then, they won't allow you communion until you have prove yourself and are baptized by them. They don't accept Christian baptismm.
Church Continuance Through Sacrifice of Workers
2x2s believe that their church can only continue through the sacrifice of the workers. They don't believe that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is good enough to remove sins. No, they believe that it is through the "sacrifice" of the workers that people can be part of the "one true way". And you should know, that they claim also that they don't know if someone is saved. They say you cannot judge such a thing. So on one hand, they condemn all to hell who don't join, but on the other hand they say you cannot know if you are saved. The resounding conclusion is that they don't know how you can be saved.
Cannot Know if You are Saved
The 2x2s claim that you cannot know if you are saved. In other words, they believe the opposite of what Jesus Christ taught. Jesus Christ taught that you can know if you are saved. The apostles also taught that you can know if you are saved. Let's looks at what Jesus Christ said and also John's epistle:
Joh_5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
1Jn_3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Second Biggest Belief
The second biggest belief is that if you are not a 2x2 and don't join, that you are going to hell. There are some exceptions. Like if you never met a worker, but if you did you would go to meeting and profess, then maybe you could be saved.
The 2x2s don't believe that Jesus Christ is God. They don't believe that Jesus Christ is the Word of God that is God as taught by the apostle John in John 1:1-3.
