Praying and Prayers in the 2x2 Religion

The 2x2 religion encourages prayer, but not in the way that men of faith in the Bible prayed to God.

Fake Reverance

One of the things that got me out of the 2x2 cult was the "put on" reverance that 2x2s exhibited when they prayed to their God. Yet if you started to talk to these same people about God after the meeting, they looked at me like I had the palsy or acted suprised. To them God was someone you prayed to in old english and sometimes in a a sing song voice. Not a God who felt our infirmities or was touched by our needs.

Weird language

Also, they prayed in old english and used "thee" and "thou" in praying to their God. When new converts tried praying using "thee" and "thou" it could get funny. Some people have prayed using "thee" and "thou" wrong for years but others in their meetings don't correct their improper english.

Praying for Things that Displease God

Many people would pray that others would be "troubled" and come to profess in the meetings. This is clearly against the Will of God. God wants people to repent of their sins and turn to Him. God doesn't want people joining a cult that destroys their minds and turns them into ignorant childish people.


When you mentioned raising your hands, it made me think of a lesson I learned from Scripture after leaving meetings. When we first went to other churches and I saw people pray or sing with their hands raised up to heaven, I thought to myself "that's weird". Then, we were doing a study of prayer in my women's bible study group -- studying many different prayers from both the OT and NT -- and wow was I humbled when I kept reading over and over about the person in the Bible praying lifting their hands!! - Melissa71

My answer to Melissa71 is this: the workers are doing the work of the devil and their goal is an imitation of God (knowledge of good and evil without the power). Lies are harder to detect when they imitate and sound like they are true. The devil is subtle. His deeds and words are subtle. They are sometimes sweet as a honeycomb but in the end, bitter as death.

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.
