No Television

Overseers and workers of the 2x2 religion may preach against having a TV. They say it is because there is bad stuff on TV. They may say that TVs are evil.

The real reason that I have found that they don't want people to have TVs is because they don't want people to stay home and watch TV instead of coming to meetings.

Workers will say there is a lot of bad stuff on TV. But I know that isn't the real reason. If they were really concerned about bad stuff, why have they covered up child sexual abuse? I mean, who is kidding who here? And overseers and workers have laptops and use INTERNET. Where can you find more bad stuff? INTERNET or TV? It doesn't take much to see through their lies.

TV Shows About Cults

While traveling on the job, I was staying at a motel, which had TV. Guess what, there are shows on TV about cults, showing how they can be dangerous. I can understand workers wouldn't want people watching those shows and getting ideas.

Learning about Morals

I don't think TV is a great place to learn morals. But tv morals are evidently higher than some parents and workers morals.

There are shows on TVs that show that incest is wrong. Some kids learn that incest is wrong from "worldly" people. Because they haven't been taught the truth by their parents or the workers. So some kids learn that they have been the victim of incest or child sexual abuse.

If the young kids who have been molested by overseers, workers or their elders saw on TV that child sexual abuse was wrong, then perhaps the children would report it to the authorities and the child molesters would go to jail.

TVs show many programs that get people to think more than the preaching of the 2x2 workers

Many TV shows cause people to think. They get the audience involved. I can see why the workers would not want that.

When I was a child, and our family traveled and stayed in motel rooms, we turned on the TV and watched it. My parents allowed this, they even chose some shows to watch. This showed to me that my parents didn't believe in the workers' "no TV" rule. It was hypocrisy to teach one thing but do another.

Changes

Since I have left the 2x2s in 2004, many things have changed. I have heard that in many states, having TVs is now allowed. They preach "Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today and forever..." but their way is always changing. So now some overseers allow TVs in their state, but other overseers don't allow tvs in other states. No wonder why kids are confused about their 2x2 beliefs. Even the overseers and workers cannot agree on the rules they preach.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
