False Prophets of the 2x2 Religion
False prophets come in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravening wolves. Jesus said we would know them by their fruits. Let's examine if preachers of the 2x2 religion are false prophets.
To prophesy means to "speak forth" (the Word of God hopefully). 2x2 workers, preachers, ministers or whatever you choose to call them claim to speak the word of God, and prophesy. This makes them "prophets" according to their own words. Are they prophets of God or false prophets? Let's look at the scriptures and make a decision by what is known.
Please bear in mind that the LORD God who made heaven and earth is good and merciful. And even false prophets can repent and call on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.
Matthew 7:15 - Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Preachers of the 2x2 religion wear sheep's clothing:
Yes, there is no denying it. To the casual observer, at first glance, they have sheep's clothing. But let's look closer as they pull their sheepskin tighter.
Are preachers of the 2x2 religion ravening wolves? Wolves cannot ALWAYS act like sheep, or they would be sheep. Wolves just act like sheep, part of the time. The rest of the time, they act like wolves.
A wolf has an appetite and they aren't going to deny that. The purpose of the sheep's clothing is to get close to the sheep to fill their appetite. Let's look at the definition of "ravening". Then look at the prophets of the 2x2 religion.

The Fruits of the Prophets of the 2x2 Religion
Let's look at the list of sins in the scripture and see if they can be matched to the preachers of the 2x2 religion. I am in process of gathering references from about 1400 pages and also newspaper articles to put here.
From Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5 - Lists of Sins from Law of God
List of sins from From 1 Corinthians 6:9
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
And we don't have specifically have child sexual abusers on the lists in the Bible, so that goes here. (Not a complete list by any means, but enough to prove the point)
And sexual abuse of minors:
"their folly shall be manifest unto all men..."
The folly of the 2x2 religion has been published worldwide. See 2x2s in News for a few articles.

|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.|
