Alienation - a 2x2 tactic
Workers spread lies about people in order to alienate them from people who could help them. They say things that they think the person will want to hear in order to discredit people who are trying to keep them from being deceived. The 2x2s prejudice people against true knowledge, against the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and against Christians.
Prime examples are when workers tell their followers that those who left their cult are "bitter" or "starting a new church". Another example is of telling people that having church buildings is evil. Many followers go along with this because many of them believe that if they belonged to a "church" that they would have to give money to the "church" and they don't want to do this. This is also brought out by the fact that 2x2s are often very stingy and poor tippers at restaurants.
The alienation is made easier by the fact that followers are ignorant of meanings of basic words. They don't understand what "bitterness" is or bother doing research to see if a person who has left the cult is indeed "bitter" or "starting a new church."
Workers teach that anyone who doesn't go out in pairs or is homeless is of the devil. So if you quit going to meetings, and you subscribed to that belief earlier, you will probably be prejudice against any minister (who is not in a pair and homeless) from helping you.
Workers teach that if you are not of their fold (they believe there is only one "fold" and that it's them see Bible study on John 10), then you have "lost out" and are "going to hell". So if you quit going to meetings because of sexual abuse, rape, incest, slander, libel, harassment etc, then you have no place to go really (in your mind) because now you are going to hell.
IMPORTANT** Many who have left the 2x2s feel like they are going to go to hell. But they couldn't stand being in the cult, so they left anyway. The workers took away their hope by feeding them lies; took away any chance of hope outside the cult. Until these people hear the real gospel (and read this website and others about the cult) they continue to live in fear and torment that they have left "God's only way". Please help me reach these poor souls for Christ!

|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.|
