Joel Lewis

Joel Lewis is my father. He used to be a 2x2 or "one of the friend" (of the workers), but is no longer. My father and mother used to have a Bible study in their home. My folks brought me to meetings held by the workers since I was a child.

My dad has worked for Hyster and OHSU. Some people wonder, how can people live in society and hold the 2x2 beliefs. Evidently the programming or brainwashing at the workers meetings (which are expected to be attended about 3 times per week) are strong enough to overcome normal societal interaction. I don't know that my father had any friends outside of the cult. I think making friends outside of the cult helps counteract the teachings of the workers.

One day after I left meetings in disgust of the workers hypocrisy, I went over to my folks home. I told them "Jesus Christ is God and the 2x2s are a cult.". Whereupon dad said "That makes sense" when he realized that Jesus Christ is God.

If you wonder how to tell your folks, you can see how I did it. Probably wasn't the most gracious, but it was nice and straightforward. Dad got the message, mom didn't.

My mom divorced my dad a few years after dad put his faith in Jesus Christ. They had been married for 46 years!

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.
