Hymn 2 - More About Jesus
Hymn #2 in the RL Allan and Son hymn book is titled "More About Jesus". This is really sad considering how most 2x2s don't want to know more about Jesus Christ. They want to know about Jesus, the person they believe started the "ONLY WAY" which they believe they are. But Jesus Christ is the Way, not them.
Did you know that the workers hate Jesus Christ? They believe Jesus Christ was a liar and refuse to believe what is written of Him. If you ask a worker, "Who is the Word of God?" They may say Jesus Christ. But then when you show them John 1:1-3 Where it says "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God..." They will deny that Jesus Christ is God. Here the apostle of Jesus Christ, John, says that Jesus Christ is God and they deny it.
Workers Contradict Hymn 2 - More About Jesus
Is it wonder why 2x2s are confused after meetings and why some of their children commit suicide and workers have sexually abused kids? They don't know God or even the hymns they sing.
The first verse says "...more of his love who died for me." But yet 2x2s don't know the love of God. What does the Bible say love is?
1Jn_5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
The workers don't believe that love is doing what Jesus Christ commanded us to do. And this includes being a true witness to others. That means not telling lies to children and covering it up when children are molested by their workers or overseers. How can someone sing "More of his saving fullness see, more of his love who died for me. " when 2x2 children are being abused? This is total hypocrisy and mocking God.
Part of line 3 says "...more of his kingdom's sure increase..more of his coming prince of peace..." I remember Howard Mooney saying that God was with us (when I was a 2x2) because more people were offering for the work. But couldn't the Catholics say the same thing when people offered to become Catholic Priests, could they not? And what do the workers say now that their numbers are falling? Is this part of the "kingdom's sure increase."? How is the kingdom increasing when numbers are falling and the attrition rate causes a steady decline in workers? Is this the blessing of their god or is it their curse?
As a Christian now, I know that God is adding to His church. And people who believe in God love Jesus Christ, love his Word, Keep His Word and don't believe in lies of false prophets. Jesus Christ showed me his love when he led took Abel's part after Cain slew him. God rules and will always be strong on behalf of us who have seen our sin, repented of it and accepted Jesus Christ as our righteousness. I was so foolish before to pride myself in meeting attendance and being a worker. God means what He says and I made large mistakes when compromising my beliefs of God in order to please the workers.
