Is Jerome Frandle a Minister?

A Leader of a Religious Organization?

Yes, I believe that Jerome Frandle is a leader of a religious organization.

Fellow Workers Agree he is a Minister

When you look around on, the 2x2 workers list their job like Esther Layman does on her facebook page, "Works at Ministry (as in the New Testament)" and also Tim Kamrau : Works at Ministry (as in the New Testament). Which shows they like to be associated with a "New Testament Ministry". Doesn't it make sense that someone in this same (for-profit) business would be classified as a "minister". If they are going to be wolves dressed in sheep's clothing, they're going to have to take the responsibility to act like a sheep or lose the sheep's clothing.

Satan has Ministers

2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Other Workers Respond to "Minister"

Here are some quotes from a newspaper article written by BILL MCCLEERY (a 2x2) who works at "The Star"

Q: Who are the ministers for this group?

A: The ministry is made up of men and women who have committed their entire lives to the work of the Gospel. We are supported by individuals moved to share by the Holy Spirit. My co-worker Jon Knochenmus and I work together in the Indianapolis area, and we work in cooperation with others in the state and others across the world.

Q: Across the world? To how many countries has this nameless home-church fellowship spread?

A: I wouldn't know the exact number, but we're in most countries of the world.

This is an example of how 2x2s workers claims they are ministers. A whole article was published by the Indianopolis Star (see in Nov 22, 2008 on page B3.

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
1Ti 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
1Ti 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
1Ti 4:4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
1Ti 4:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
1Ti 4:6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.


  1. Has Jerome departed from the faith? (Yes, he's in a cult)
  2. Has Jerome given heed to seducing spirits? (Yes, he teaches lies that please people)
  3. Has Jerome given heed to doctrines of devils? (Yes, overseers aren't to believe that Jesus is God in flesh)
  4. Does Jerome speak lies in hypocrisy? (Yes, he claims to be a man of God)
  5. Does Jerome have his conscience seared with a hot iron? (I don't know if it bothers him when he lies)
  6. Does Jerome Frandle forbid to marry? (Yes, workers are not allowed to marry)
  7. Does Jerome Frandle command to abstain from meats?(Not that I know of)
  8. Does Jerome Frandle put bretheren (Christians) in remembrance of these things? (No)

My conclusion based on the scripture and my knowledge of Jerome Frandle, overseers and the cult is that Jerome Frandle is not a good minister of Jesus Christ. Which brings up the next question, "Is Jerome Frandle even a minister of Jesus Christ?"

Is Jerome Frandle a Minister of Jesus Christ?

The first thing to do is to find scripture which explains who is a minister of Jesus Christ. The Bible speaks clearly on the matter.

Act 26:13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
Act 26:14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
Act 26:15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
Act 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
Act 26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
Act 26:18 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.


  1. Does Jerome open people's eyes? (No, he closes their eyes to Jesus. Most 2x2s I have met, don't even believe in Jesus (that he is God in flesh)
  2. Does Jerome turn people from darkness to light? (No, he gets them into the cult)
  3. Does Jerome turn people from the power of Satan unto God? (No, he deludes them and makes them think they are serving God, but they are really serving Satan)
  4. Do people receive the forgiveness of sins? (No, in fact most 2x2s I know don't even know if they are saved)
  5. Do people receive an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Jesus? (No, they have faith in the 2x2 teachings and not God)


Jerome Frandle is not even a minister of Jesus Christ, but I do believe he is a preacher of unrighteousness in the 2x2 cult.
