Not my girls. They're not dating PROFESSING boys.
"Not my girls. They're not dating PROFESSING boys." I hear this more and more from people who are leaving the cult. And while they were in the cult, yes, going to MEETINGS, they didn't want their girls to date PROFESSING boys. Why?
MEETINGS are Breeding Ground for Abuse
Many PROFESSING women who have married PROFESSING men have found out the cruel realities of the 2x2 gospel preached by the WORKERS that leads to women physically, psychologically and emotionally battered by the men they married. They come to despise their parents who teach them to "submit" to their husbands because their parents too are steeped in the 2x2 gospel of the WORKERS and have rutted themselves in emotionally abusive mindsets. When PROFESSING parents of a wife won't listen to their daughter, then they lose the trust of their daughters and encourage them to leave the MEETINGS.
Mothers Don't Want Sons Around Their Husbands
Women also don't want their boys in the cult or around their abusive husband. Why? Because they don't want their boys to grow up to abuse women. Think of it. It's one thing to be in an abusive relationship and another thing to watch your husband teach your son how to abuse women by how he treats you. This is devastating to a mother and a cruel thing to witness.
Are these isolated events? Hardly. When I was a child, I went to "sings" or gatherings for young professing kids. There were some girls at the sings that had flown over from Australia and were trying to find a spouse from America that was PROFESSING. WHen I asked why, they told me that the PROFESSING men in Australia were very abusive.
My first year in the work, I went with Randy Russell (my companion that year) to a court case of a married PROFESSING couple. What was the case? The husband had beat his wife. Beat her? The sweet guy that was so friendly? Yes, beat her. We're talking a man that pounded his fist into her face. Fortunately, the parents of the wife took it seriously and sued him for assault/spousal abuse. And fortunately (this may seem odd to you) the abuse was physical so the had proof (psychological abuse is difficult to tolerate, is more cruel, and is very hard to prove in court). I had known the abusive man for years. And he had a history of abuse. The 2x2 gospel only made the abuse worse, and he had no power to change his life. It's sad that the things these PROFESSING people trust in is the very thing that is destroying them. Taking an "anger management class" is not going to fix someone who is frustrated that was raised in the cult and had an abusive father. This man was getting into fist fights with his own brother when they were over the age of 25!
The LOVE OF GOD?
Is is the love of God for men to abuse women? Why do WORKERS tell women to submit to men who PROFESS to love God but instead hate their wives? Simple, because they are not of God, and this is why many abused women have left the cult and don't want their kids to be taken advantage of or learn to be like the OVERSEERS and WORKERS.
Are wives to submit to their husbands? Absolutely. But this is not the problem. When the WORKERS harp on the wives to submit but don't tell the husbands to love their wives, then this is the problem. This is the system of abuse that causes women who love their children to not want their kids to marry cult members.
Eph_5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Col_3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
Regarding Professing Abusive Husbands
Tit_1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
Lev_19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
1Jn_5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
Jas_4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
