2x2 Spouse

"I need some help. I just found out that I'm married to a 2x2. When we dated he was really vague and said he was non-denominational Christian. I was raised Protestant/Catholic/Lutheran/Assembly of God/Baptist/....What should I do?"

I get that too much. Another one is:

"My husband/wife is divorcing me, being pressured by his/her parents, feels guilty for marrying an OUTSIDER and is now going back to meetings. I'm hurt. I'm afraid. What can I do?"

Yes, the two questions have a lot in common.

My first response is "How in the world did you marry someone and not know their faith, meet their pastor, talk with their elders, meet their church etc? Did you not ever read where it says not to be unequally yoked? And did you not know that satan's ministers are as ministers of righteousness?"

And my follow up response is "Take the mote our of your own eye..." because if you married someone in a cult, then you have some issues to deal with first before you can help your spouse. And believe me, you don't want to go trying to help them without dealing with your own issues first. You will be at a great disadvantage, will irritate them and the whole relationship is likely to blow up. Can you say "nasty divorce"?

Third, you have a lot of research to do to learn about the 2x2s before you go asking your spouse questions.. Ask the wrong questions and they are likely to hold an eternal grudge against you. The WORKERS have warned them about the evil OUTSIDERS (that's you, if you're not PROFESSING)

Fourth, when you married a 2x2, they believed they were sinning for marrying an OUTSIDER. So they feel guilty about their relationship with you. And if you didn't know that about them, then you didn't know them or their religion very well. This is the core of their beliefs that only their group is going to hell and if you are not a 2x2, then they believe you are going to hell. They may lie to you, deceive you, use you and "accept you", but they still feel guilty about their illegitmate relationship (that's their relationship with you). That results in the forced smiles and the comments when people looking at the marriage photos of:

  • She's wearing lots of makeup. (covering up her feelings)
  • He doesn't appear to be in love.
  • He looks uncomfortable.
  • She doesn't look like she's in love with him.
  • She looks uncomfortable.
  • How well do they know each other? etc

And typically a marriage between a 2x2 and a non2x2 is built on lust, control, power and deceit. It's certainly not built on honesty and a relationship with God. Yes, this spells trouble for a marriage. How can you expect a good relationship with a 2x2 who hides their primary beliefs from the one they are supposed to live together for life? Simple. My answer would be: "They don't plan on a lifelong relationship, they don't love them and their relationships are very shallow and deceitful, and anyone who treats others this way has too high an opinion of themselves and their religon."

Fifth, please build up your marriage and be full of good works because when you go to talk about "religion" with your spouse, it is going to test your marriage to the maximum. To them, they believe meetings are God and anything that "threatens" their idea of MEETINGS is like trying to tell them that their god is wrong. They are going to feel threatened by you and then regret ever marrying you because the WORKERS warned them about "dating outside".

Sixth, you cannot control what is going to happen. You cannot stop them from going back to MEETINGS. You cannot stop the counsel that the WORKERS will give them. And yes, WORKERS have encouraged people to divorce their spouse, called it illegitimate because they married an OUTSIDER and allow them to marry again (but only a 2x2) and continue in "THE WAY" (their group). You cannot control this. Perhaps if you are in this category (sadly), then you understand the sadness and heartbreak of mothers whose son or daughter has become secretive as they've been caught up into a mind-control, deceitful relatinoship with a 2x2 who claims to be a Christian. The difference being that you've married the 2x2 and it was your choice. If it wasn't your choice and you were forced, then this is a legal issue that you need to take up with the state. Underage forced marriages can be contested in court.

Seventh, I encourage you to put everything in God's hands and let your peace, joy and pleasure in life come from serving him. Otherwise, based on what I've seen and heard, I think your life is going to be very tumultoous and sad.

I have never heard of a case where a Christian married a 2x2, found out they were a 2x2 and were able to convert the 2x2 to Christianity. Never heard of it. I have heard of some pretty bizzarre stories, but never of that. Rarely a 2x2 will become a Christian. It's typically after a WORKER or one of the FRIENDS greatly "offends" them. And even then many only become a "Christian" in word, just like they were a 2x2. It's like changing a jacket for them to be accepted by their new "church" with many of their fundamental beliefs, pride etc still intact. This is not true believe, because the Bible teaches that acknowledgment of the truth results in repentance. Salvation is for the repentant, not for the self-righteous. What makes me sick is to see a 2x2 repeating and copying other people to appear to be a Christian, and do it knowingly while at the same time supporting the cult as "Christian".

Mat_9:13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Act_26:20 But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

If you've married a 2x2 then good works are in order. I think this is one of the best ways to win a 2x2, through good works. They don't follow the Bible, don't understand the word of God, don't believe in Jesus Christ (in truth), but appreciate good works. They don't know what a friend is until you are one to them. Which brings up this verse:

Rom_2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

I would like to point out that it is the goodness of God that leads people to repentance. Not seduction, crafty words and living with someone. We know what the results of fleshly lusts are. And it's not Godly repentance.

All in all, if you are married to a 2x2, then you've got a lot on your plate. Time to read your Bible from the beginning and spending time on your knees earnestly pleading with God. Time will be needed to research the cult and see how 2x2s think so that you can treat them as you would like to be treated if you were a 2x2. Your brothers and sisters in Christ will be needed to prayer for you, with you and for your spouse.

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.
