How to Tell if Someone is a Christian?
How do I tell if someone is a Christian? What are the marks of a Christian? These are common questions that I have had.
Thankfully, the Bible is has clean answers for these questions. Some people that go to 2x2 meetings think that the 2x2 friends who meet in homes or Sunday morning meetings are Christians. I will show you some verses that I have found in the Bible that show clearly that the 2x2 friends and workers who meet in homes are not Christians. You can show these verses to the 2x2 overseers, workers and friends if they wonder why you don't think they are Christians.
Christians Keep Jesus Christ's Sayings
Mat_7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Joh 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
1Jn_2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1Jn_3:24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
1Jn 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
Rev_22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Some people say Jesus this and Jesus that...but don't keep the commandments of God and dishonor God and their parents. God makes it clear that they are not Christians. Some people hate their Christian neighbors. This also is a sign that they are not of God.
While Christians can sin, it is not a systemic thing. The 2x2 beliefs and lies are their way of life, not the exception.
The 2x2 friends who meet in homes do not do what Jesus Christ teaches. They believe in a form of meeting and a form of preaching but don't do what Jesus Christ teaches. One example of this is dishonesty. The 2x2 workers and friends teach that they are the one true way. They also are deceptive because they won't tell people the name by which they call themselves. Also the 2x2 friends and workers cover up the past and how the cult formed with William Irvine, a mason. According to Jesus Christ, they are fools because they don't do what Jesus Christ teaches.
1Jn_2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Christians Love God
The greatest commandment is to love God. Loving God means keeping his commandments and loving our neighbors. The 2x2 overseers, workers and friends don't keep the commandments of God. They don't believe in keeping the commandments of God. The 2x2 workers hide the knowledge and understanding of God by twisting the scripture to try to make their teachings look like the teachings of God.
Joh 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Joh_14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
Christians Don't Fellowship with Cults
Eph_5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
1Co_10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
2Co_6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Tit_1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
Christians Fellowship with Christians
1Co_1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1Jn_1:7 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.
Christians are Honest
1Jn_1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
This scripture clearly points out honesty about what is heard and declared to people.
The 2x2s are not truthful about what they have seen and heard. Workers have coverd up child sexual abuse, lie about the origins of the cult and mislead children about who God is. Many children come to hate God afte growing up a 2x2 and going to their meetings.2x2 Workers have often preached that other people are going to hell because they dont' believe in the workers and don't go to meetings. They believe other preachers are going to hell because they are not single, don't go out in pairs and they own church buildings instead of renting them.

|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.|
