Twisted Scriptures Results in Twisted Minds

The overseers and workers by twisting scriptures are able to twist the minds of followers, teaching lies and hypocrisy that results in mind control. Twisted scriptures lead to twisted minds.

"Twisting"

"Twisting". What is it? What is twisting? How do you successfully twist something?

How You Twist Something

Consider a sheet of flat metal. If you clamp it in the middle to a table and then , push down on one side (you would have to remove that part of the table), and pull up on the opposite, then it is said to be twisted. Now let go of all but the middle. If it wasn't strained too much, it springs back to place. Such is the normal human mind that has been stressed.

Momentarily Twisting Harder

But now let's take it to the next level. If you push down on the same spot again and pull up on the same spot again, and this time you push and pull harder, it will twist more. But all that pushing and pulling to twist things takes work.

Constant Pressure

To reduce the work, you could put a magnet above the place you were pulling and a magnet below the place you were pushing. Then, while in your absence, the metal will be deformed by it's attraction to the magnets. And the metal will stay twisted.

Permanent Twisting Through Heat

To reduce work further, and increase the twisted shape, you could apply some heat. And then you could provide some cooling. And after several cycles of increased and decreased temperatures, you could permanently warp or twist the metal so that it no longer knows it's original shape or tries to spring to it's original shape.

Stress

If you twist metal back and forth too much, it can break. That is because twisting metal produces stress. Thinner metal can be bent back and forth more, but eventually it will stress and break. This is called metal fatigue. Thicker and older metal can be bent back and forth less before it breaks.

Summary of Twisting Process

So you can see through the work of clamping a piece in place in the middle, pushing, pulling, using magnets, working the metal several times and adjusting temperatures, you can twist and warp a piece of metal so that it no longer springs back to it's original shape.

Twisted Scriptures

First off, I would like to point out that twisting scriptures is a sin. The Bible teaches us not to lie. And to lie, or twist the scriptures to manipulate people is evil. And to lie to people to cause their own destruction for monetary gain is evil too.

Exo_20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Also, to take God's name in vain is a sin. Pretending to be a Christian preacher and teaching lies is deception and using God's name in vain.

Exo_20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Clearly the overseers and workers do not believe in the moral law of Jesus Christ.

Twisting Scriptures by Taking Out of Context

Twisting the scriptures is when a verse is taken out of context, one part of the sentence emphasized and the other part de-emphasized (if that's a word). That's how one sentence can be twisted.

Misquoting to Twist Scriptures

Or, a sentence from the Bible can be blatantly misquoted. Then if people are not looking in the Bible, they won't even know they are being lied to.

Or, a sentence of the Bible that seems to match a false doctrine when isolated from it's context can be quoted and the rest of the scripture ignored. People who haven't read this part of scripture well enough to know it's context or the meaning of the author can be fooled then.

Scripture can be added to also. If a person talks about a common belief for which there is no Biblical support, and then quotes some scriptures but adds to it, then the "meaning" of the scripture can appear to be changed. Actually, the Bible has not changed, but people have added to God's word so that it is no longer God's word.

Scripture can be removed also. Some people have Bibles printed that remove certain parts of the Bible or have them "translated" differently so that scriptures are taken away from. Certainly there are Bibles that contain all or those parts of the scripture, but if religious leaders isolate or frown on those Bibles, then people are less likely to know the whole truth.

The Oath

It used to be that in courts, people would swear an oath to tell the truth. It went something like this, "I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God."

Nowadays, people swear to tell the truth under penalty of perjury. And the penalty of perjury is rarely enforced. Lawyers are trained to deceive judges by the questions they ask, by emphasizing one point through repetition etc. And so alter judgment.

Twisted Minds Using Twisted Scriptures

When twisted minds use twisted scriptures, this is normal to them. When I was 18, in the absence of my father's proper fathering, I was brainwashed by Everett Swanson, a powerful speaker who was convinced of the 2x2 religion. At this age, I offered for the work. My mind became twisted, and even at 18, my teachers at school knew something was wrong. When I went into the work, I used the same scriptures that my companion and other workers used and twisted them. And all the people in the meetings were used to and wanted to hear the twisted scriptures. And my companion, Randy Russell, had to warn me that when strangers were present, to not use the cult jargon because they just wouldn't understand. They needed to be broken into the cult slowly.

Safe Haven of Meetings

Many professing people, when coming to meetings, say how thankful they are to be there. Have you ever wondered why that is? (If you were a 2x2 who used to go to meetings and heard them say this or said it yourself?) I believe this is because when we went to meetings, there was no fear of someone trying to straighten out our twisted minds. And there, at meeting, we could share our warped beliefs without fear of normal scriptures being shared and the twisted views always represented. Or maybe just knowing that many words would be spoken, but not morality ever shown.

Twisting of the Human Mind

The twisting of the human mind comes through hearing. When people hear the scripture twisted but fail to check the scripture, their minds become twisted. This twisting causes stress. If you bent a man's arm behind his back (physically twisting his body), he would try to leave or escape to get away from the stress.

The solution for perverted minds who know they are preaching twisted scriptures is to subtly (so as to not stress people to much or to make them search for meaning) insinuate something, or to say nothing abnormal at all so that people become conditioned by the habit of coming to meetings or they are not able to find anything wrong at all because the workers are just preaching nothing to avoid fault being found. But to learned people, fault could be found, because the gospel of Jesus Christ is not being preached.

But with twisting scriptures, there are things that prevent people from leaving. They are clamped to the table, so to speak, like the sheet of metal in the above example. Examples of this clamping are children who are forced to attend meetings because their parents make them. Or people dating a 2x2 who want to please their potential spouse. They stay in the meeting because they are desperate to get married. Or people who are living with a 2x2 and involved in a sexual relationship and don't want to make their lover upset because they want to have sex more than they care about God. Or a neighbor or friend of a 2x2 who has been invited to meeting but feels creeped out and wants to leave but stays in the meeting because they believe it would be impolite to leave a cult meeting. Or people who are rebelling from God, and want to find another church that suits their wishes. All these are examples of forces that clamp people to meetings.

Stress of Leaving Cult

Just like there is stress in people's minds when they are being warped by twisted scriptures, there is incredible stress when people leave the cult. Many people who have left the cult have been diagnosed with post traumatic stress syndrome. The name of this diagnosis tells us that people have been overly stressed. This is why cults can be dangerous.

Preventing and Straightening Out

You may be asking yourself, "How can I prevent my mind from being warped"? or "How can I get straightened out after being warped by the workers?" The solution is simple. Emphasize the important things of scripture, make sure you understand them, and make sure everything conforms to those things. Here are the two most important principles God wants us to know. Everything is built on these two principles. And they are in this order:

Mat 22:34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

So there you have it, the two greatest commandments given by God: Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and secondly love your neighbor as yourself.

And yes, loving your neighbor, the friends, workers or the overseers more than yourself is a sin. This sin is called idolatry and it is a fundamental twisted teaching of cults. And this is why cults de-emphasize the commandments of God and replace them with their own rules which they emphasized and repeat greatly.

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.
