Rock Solid - A Good Foundation
Here are rock-solid, hard-hitting pieces of scripture that show you the 2x2 religion is not of God, but actually of the devil. Memorize these scripture so you can tell people why the 2x2 religion is not of God but of the devil.
I will give you the scriptures that have been a great encouragement to many (two-edged sword, they apply to us also) and a simple paraphrase to put into other words.
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
God is good. If we do evil,and say we are children of God - then we are liars. People who do evil are not of God. All God's people do good. If we sin, we can repent and do what is good (walk in the light), then we will have fellowship together and be cleansed of our sin by Jesus Christ.
1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
If your spouse (or you) say that you haven't sinned (broken God's commandments), then they are only deceiving themselves. The truth isn't in them. We cannot just say we believe in God, we must do God's will, keep his commandments. (Also, we are saved by faith in God, not by works.)
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
If we confess our sins (admit them, confess, turn from them), then the LORD God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and wipe them away from all our dirty evil. However if we claim to be perfect, without sin, then we are calling him a liar, and his word (scripture, teachings, truth) are not in us.
1Jn 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
We know the LORD God if we keep his commandments. If a person says "Yes, I know God" but doesn't keep God's commandments, then they are lying and full of lies.
1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
If a person says they are walking in the light, then they ought to act like Jesus Christ and love others. Children of God don't live sinful lives.
1 John 2:9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
If your spouse says they are "in the light", but they hate you, then they're in the dark, confused, blind, wandering, liars.
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
If your spouse is in love with the world, takes money from your account, wastes it, spends it on sinful things, steals money, hides money from you, buys things for themselves to please their fleshly lusts, lusts after things, covets, lusts after another spouse, full of pride etc, they are loving the world and the love of God is not in them.
1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
The reason they leave Christian fellowship (if they were in fellowship with Christians before) is so that people can see they are not believers, not in fellowship.
1Jn 2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
If your spouse is lying to you in God's name, you know it isn't God that they're serving. There is no lie of God, and God doesn't lie.
1 John 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
False prophets of the 2x2 religion sweet talk people into coming to their meetings and joining. They are seducers. Don't be ashamed but be confident in doing God's commandments, you know you are born of him.
1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
Whoever is living in sin is transgressing the law (of God). They often transgress the laws of man too. Sin is the breaking of the law.
1Jn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
A wicked spouse is going to sin. Jesus Christ was made known to the world to destroy the words of the devil.
1 John 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
If your spouse hates you without cause, then your spouse is murdering you, and does not have eternal life. I hope they don't kill you. Typically they lie about you, deceive you, take your money, lie to try to get restraining orders against you, divorce etc
1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
Believe in God, have faith, repent and keep his commandments. Pray earnestly for God's strength and wisdom and power to love your spouse so that the LORD God will answer your prayers.
1Jn 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1Jn 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 1Jn 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
The false prophets of the 2x2 religion do not believe Jesus Christ is the word of God, good/perfect, without sin and God come in the flesh. They bring the spirit of antichrist. Do not let them in your home or bid them God speed.
1Jn 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
Let us all love each other. If you need help, feel free to ask for help. See box below.
1Jn 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
No matter what happens, the LORD God has power to give you eternal life. Repent of your sins, believe on Jesus Christ, keep his commandments and know your soul is saved.

|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.|
