Are 2x2s Christians?
Are 2x2s Christians? Are 2x2s saved? These are common questions when people learn the gospel of Jesus Christ and think back on their participation in that religion. When I talk with ex2x2s on the phone they often ask, "Are 2x2s saved?" or "Are 2x2s going to hell?"
What Does Jesus Christ say?
Joh 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
2x2s don't keep the sayings and commandments of Jesus - therefore 2x2s don't love Jesus.
What Do the Apostles Say?
In 1 John, John is very clear:
1 John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
2x2s don't keep the commandments of Jesus. Ever heard of a 2x2 complaining about idolatry of the workers or the sorcery of workers? Ever hear of a 2x2 keeping the sabbath? Since 2x2s don't keep the commandments of Jesus, the apostle John says that 2x2s don't know Jesus Christ. It's impossible to be a disciple of Jesus Christ if you don't know him.
2x2s claim to know God. But what does the apostle John say?
1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
If a anyone claims to know Jesus Christ but doesn't keep his commandments, he is a liar. That's clear enough.
2x2s openly condemn people to hell if they take a salary (which is scriptural: "Muzzle not the ox that treadeth the corn"). Is this loving a brother in Christ? Nope.
1 John 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
Lies, Lies, Lies
God doesn't lie. The apostles of Jesus Christ did not need to lie. Yet the workers have lied, lied, lied about their origins. Is telling lies the work of God? Nope. What did Jesus Christ say about liars?
1Ti 1:8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
Telling lies is a sin. The workers are abiding in sin. They are living in unrighteousness.
The apostle John tells us in the book of Revelation:
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
I think everyone will agree that the disciples of Jesus Christ are not headed for the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.
I think it is great that Jesus Christ and the apostles told us how we can know if a person knows and loves God or not. If we have faith in the word of God, then questions like whether 2x2s are Christians are easy to figure out.

|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.|
