Funerals for the FRIENDS are typically held by the WORKERS. The WORKER are opportunistic and use this as an occasion to preach their 2x2 message.

Workers will often officiate over funerals. While they won't perform marriage ceremonies, they evidently love the sad, melancholy setting of funerals and use it as an occasion to preach the 2x2 message.

When I was a 2x2 WORKER and in my first year with Randy Russell, I asked Randy why we didn't tell people that someone went to hell when we spoke at a funeral of someone who wasn't part of our group. Randy told me that we cannot know if someone was saved or not.

Then later, after Randy preached a 2x2 "into heaven" at a funeral, I asked him why he preached the PROFESSING person into heaven if we "cannot know if someone was saved or not". Then he told me that he needed to assure the FRIENDS. This is an example of the two-facedness of the WORKERS.

Graveside services will be 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Beth El Cemetery with Karen Tenniswood officiating.

Burial or Cremation

Do 2x2s believe in cremation? From my experience, 2x2s may get burried or cremated and there is no specific teaching on this. Workers that I know that have died have always been burried.

Know If You are Saved

Let's start with common sense (or what should be common).

  1. If a person lies, cheats, lives in adultery, murders and steals, I don't believe they will go to heaven.
  2. If a person doesn't believe in the Bible, I don't believe they will go to heaven.
  3. If a person says they love God but their actions don't indicate it, I don't believe they are 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.
