For the Love of Money

I believe the love of money is at the heart of the older brothers of the 2x2 religion. They try hard to maintain an outward facade of pious behavior, but their actions show differently.

Scriptural Warnings About Greedy and Covetous People

1 Corinthians 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

Great Business Plan

It all sounds nice, looks nice. The workers preach their gospel (mention the word "God", "Jesus" a few times and read a few verses, tell a cute story, share a few nice thoughts). They don't take collections (at least not at meetings). You get their false religion for cheap - attend meetings twice a week, housing the workers, buying a few meals and all is good. Right?

"Surely they are not after money", they say, "It's those organized religions that are money-grabbers etc. We have the true servants of God."

Observe the 2x2 Overseers

Let's take a look at the money aspect of the 2x2s. Start with the older brothers. Can you name the "older brothers"? Why not? Don't know much about older brothers? Why are they secretive about their hierarchy?

Then look at overseers. You don't see them around much either. Sometimes overseers don't even have a companion, and just travel around "helping". So much for going out in pairs.

Look at the business organization of the 2x2 religion. Are they registered as a for-profit corporation? Yes, they did in Canada. In Australia they are listed as a charity. But they don't disclose their profit-loss statements even as a charity.

Massive Money Collections

Did you know workers take collections? Yes, workers collect their salary in room, board, donated car, paid car insurance, people pay for hall rentals etc.

Did you know that overseers take collections? Yes, at the end of each year, overseers have a mandatory collection of ALL the workers money. "Because we've always done it this way", they say. They take out what they want and give some back to the workers. Mandatory collections by overseers. If you don't give your money, you are fired.

The Money Flow

Let's list the money flow:

  • The friends of the workers get you to come to meetings (at the friend's expense)
  • You listen to the drivel and because you don't know God, you profess/join
  • You attend meetings (at expense of elder in his home)
  • Workers stay in your home (your expense)
  • Workers eat out with you (your expense)
  • You go to conventions (workers expense)
  • You give money to workers (your expense)
  • Each year at conventions, workers required to give all their money to overseer (workers expense - overseers profit)
  • If you decide to become a worker, you are required to sell all and give them the money (your expense - their profit)
  • If you die and leave money to workers in your will (your expense - overseers profit)

The overseers make a profit from workers, elders, the friends and you every step of the way.

Appearance of Good with Easy Lies-Makes People TOO Trusting

Since overseers and workers loooook sooo good, when some people die, they give they money and/or land to workers. Elders may take this money and put it in accounts and dole it out to overseers with NO acountability. No big deal eh?

Sick Workers

Ever been in the work, sold your house, gave up your job, emptied your bank account and been asked to bring it to the convention grounds? Yep, mandatory collection by the overseers. No accountability. All your $ is taken. What a great sacrifice, the friends ooooo and aaaaaah.

What happens when you are sick? Dumped at your parents, off to fend for yourself. No money for you out of their millions. Feed the hungry, NO! Cloth the naked, NO! How are these sick workers to get jobs? Who will pay for their health care?

Overseers milk these young workers (thinking they are following Jesus) for every dime they can, having them collect money for them and the friends house, cloth and feed them, and then when they are done with them, wrung out every last drop, then they are disposed of like garbage. All with a sweet smile.

Paul Teaches of Signs of the Last Days

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.

With this money handling, what do you think of the 2x2 overseers now?

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.
