Clinical Overview of 2x2 Religion

A clinical overview of the 2x2 church or 2x2 religion:

Names: "The truth", "the way" are the most common two names by which they call themselves. Others commonly know them as the 2x2s because their ministers frequently go out in pairs and that is point of doctrine and righteousness in their eyes.

Finances: For profit organization. Large funds managed by wealthy elders who control trusts and distribute out money to overseers.

Founder: William Irvine

Leaders: Overseers who are elected by other overseers. Overseers not subject to discipline by followers. And workers who lead the meetings and elders which lead the meetings when workers are not present.

Employees: The overseers or senior brother workers call them "workers" and use them to preach their message in areas that their employees are assigned to.

Members: Are called "the friends" (of the workers). They are the ones that financially support the whole system. People who are not members are called "Strangers" or "outsiders".

Geographical: Began in Ireland and spread through world. Chiefly in Ireland, Australia, North America (Oregon, California and Texas has most followers), Scattered around the world (France, Germany)

Distinctive Core Beliefs: They believe in their homeless ministers who go out in pairs, meetings in the home and they believe in the fear that keeps them "in line" with the workers beliefs.

Places of worship:

  • Rented buildings for evening "gospel meetings"
  • Rent public buildings and Masonic buildings and Oddfellows halls
  • Homes of followers for "Bible Studies" and their Sunday morning meetings
  • Annual church buildings at properties called convention grounds owned by followers and/or workers
  • Annual special meetings may be held at schools, granges YMCA etc

Isolation: Cult members live among general population and only live in isolation at annual convention times when they try to get followers to become workers. More intense brainwashing is necessary then to get them to make such an extreme commitment to leave potential spouse, future

Chain of Command: "Older brothers" control overseers
Overseers control senior workers in the field
Senior workers in the field control the younger workers, elders and regular followers
Younger workers obey the older workers and are appreciated for "their sacrifice" by elders and followers.

Official Publications:

  • Annual conventions list for area
  • Speakers list for conventions
  • Workers lists that typically come out during convention time
  • Special meetings list
  • Bible studies list which dictates which chapters or topics to be studied that day
  • Field lists that tells who goes to which meetings. It also shows who the overseer-approved elders are.

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.
