Kids Who Don't PROFESS
Kids who don't profess are a thorn in the sides of professing parents or the friends who have kids. Workers, elders and the friends often insinuate that if the kids don't profess, then there must be something wrong with the parents.
There are many reasons why some kids never PROFESS even if they have two PROFESSING parents.
The first and best reason why kids don't PROFESS is the hypocrisy of the WORKERS. The child may hear and believe that people should read their Bible but they never see their parents or their PROFESSING siblings reading their Bible. When they see the hypocrisy between what is talked about in MEETINGS and what is going on in their family, then they are disgusted with the hypocrisy and want nothing to do with it.
Examples of hypocrisy:
Friends of Kids with PROFESSING Parents
Kids visit with their friends at school and find close friendships. When they tell their friends about MEETINGS, many of them think it's a cult. Once the kids learn to think realistically (whether they can put their thoughts into well-formed arguments or not), they resist the WORKERS influence and learn to look at the WORKERS from an honest perspective. The WORKERS cannot sustain such scrutiny and fall short of the expectations that they have set up for themselves.
Fornication and Adultery
Probably all the 2x2 ELDERS know the "loose" girls,boys, men and women in their FIELDS. When non-PROFESSING children see and hear about the fornication and adultery, then they are disgusted with the WORKERS and refuse to PROFESS. Many of them get digusted with "god" in general because the only "god" that they have been taught by their PROFESSING parents is the 2x2 god.

|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.|
