Overseer's Traditions

Overseers teach their traditions above the commandments of God. To them is more important for women to wear their hair in a bun and go to annual conventions than that they should know the law of God or repent of their sins.

Overseers Traditions

The traditions of the overseers even get in the way of their own workers making converts.

The Overseer's Conventions

Traditions of the overseers include conventions. Annual conventions of the Faith Mission in Ireland were a tradition that William Irvine copied. Even today the overseer's workers are sent off to preps even when they have just started new people to come to meeting. The workers have to leave their new converts right in the middle of things and head off to work at setting up chairs in meetings barns, doing projects at conventions and such. Amazing how their traditions even supersede their convert-making.

Many workers complain amongst themselves when conventions interfere with their missions. But the overseers assure them to come to conventions and work on the buildings despite the souls of men. I really don't have a problem with them building meeting sheds on convention grounds because the more things that draw them away of deceiving people into joining their religion, the better.

Women Wearing Hair in Buns

The men overseers like to show their dominance and control by requiring women to wear their hair in a bun. It is amazing to go into meetings and see women wearing their hair in buns. It is a prominent teaching of theirs and you can see it in how the women wear their hair. It's not even a doctrine in scripture but it is one of the signs in which they celebrate that someone is making changes to become a 2x2.

Two by Two

Overseers claim that they have to go two by two which is why many call them 2x2s. Yet their is not doctrine or teaching of the apostles even once in the book of Acts and all the letters of there ever being a salvation doctrine of going in pairs. The apostles went in pairs at Jesus Christ's direction to the Jews, but not once do I ever see it required amongst the Gentiles. This tradition of the overseers to send out workers in pairs limits the workers' proselytizing too . It is a major turn off to people who come to their meetings when they proclaim their own self-righteousness at this tradition of theirs and condemn all others to hell.

No Church Buildings

Overseers claim that it is a sin to have church buildings and all preachers who have them are of the devil and going to hell. Yet this teaching is not in scripture. This is another self-righteous teaching of theirs that turns many people away, especially when they see their church buildings at conventions that are only used for about one week out of the year.

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.
