They are the Only Way
The 2x2s teach, insinuate and practice the belief that they are the ONLY WAY. Most believe that if you don't come to meetings and profess, then you are going to hell. But these same people often don't even know if they will go to heaven when they die. Some say that you cannot know if you are going to heaven. Here's a quote from Willis Prop who is/was an overseer in the 2x2 religion in a conversation going through the workers to get to God:
No, but it shouldn't have taken you from the fellowship. You see, there's one thing that the religious world will not recognize, that there's an order in this way of God from God down. God is at the top, then his Son, then the Holy Spirit led ministry, then the elders that are appointed by the ministry, then the people in the church down to the children. That's God's order and has been all the time and they will not accept the ministry. They think that they can get with God without a ministry and without a fellowship.
Or take this quote from Harry Brownlee:
Friends, this isn't "A way". This is "THE way". This isn't "A church" this is "THE church"."
What the Bible Teaches
Quite simply, the Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is the Way. Only Jesus Christ is the spotless Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Jesus Christ is the way to have your sins forgiven and atoned for. Anyone who claims to be a Christian and teaches otherwise is deceiving you. Satan loves to deceive.
Workers in Pairs
The overseers teach that the only true way for their clergy to go out is to go in pairs.
NO FORMAL Christian Teaching Allowed for 2x2 Preachers
OVERSEERS believe that it is a sin to be formally educated in the Bible. They claim to believe that the ONLY WAY for the WORKERS to be taught is by the Spirit of God. In truth, there is a spirit teaching them, but it is not the Spirit of God. This is proven time and again by their false teachings and denial of Jesus Christ being God in the flesh.
Meetings in the Home
WORKERS believe that Jesus Christ instituted MEETINGS IN THE HOME and that is the ONLY WAY to worship. However, no place in the Bible does Jesus institute MEETINGS IN THE HOME. Some disciples met in homes, but they also met in the temple. Jesus Christ rode a donkey and had the spirit of God. But it doesn't that Jesus Christ instituted riding a donkey as the ONLY WAY for transportation.
OVERSEERS in God's Place
I've never heard an OVERSEER claim to be God, but I do know that they believe that since they "have the spirit of God" that they are to be obeyed, supremely, above the Bible. To them, this is the ONLY WAY. Any WORKERS who have been rebuked and taken from the WORK or LOST THEIR PART and who are OUT OF LINE must confess that they agree totally with the WORKERS in order to be allowed back in again. It has nothing to do with scripture or principle. It has to do with total submission to the OVERSEERS. This is not the way the Bible teaches.
Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Why Are Workers Teaching Lies?
Workers are teaching lies because they are blind. How are they blinded? Good question, let's read the Bible to find out.
2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Why Have OVERSEERS and WORKERS Been Blinded by Satan?
Let's look in the Bible again
2Co 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
Just like when judges take bribes to pervert judgment, these OVERSEERS have not renounced dishonesty and are walking in craftiness, handling the word of God deceitfully. This is why they are blinded. Same as when a judge consents to a bribe and judges unjustly.
Another Only Way Twisted Verse
In John 10, Jesus taught:
Anyone who believes that the FRIENDS are Christians are condemning themselves. If you believe the FRIENDS are true Christians, then you are agreeing that you are going to hell if you don't PROFESS. Also, you are claiming that they way to heaven and not Jesus Christ, calling Jesus Christ a liar.
