When I was a 2x2, I was extremely prejudiced by the workers against Christians. I thought all preachers were evil. I eventually did listen to some preachers on the radio and found much of what they said very helpful. When they would suggest donating to their ministries, the thoughts of the workers came back that they must be evil. I had blocked out of my mind that workers themselves express their needs. They will tell people about a ticket they got (letting you know in their way how much the ticket was for so you could offer to pay for it). But I could not get out of my mind the helpful things that "false radio preachers" spoke about. It was slowly that I was learning the truth. And it was from the "evil outsiders". The prejudice that I had kept me from getting to know God. And the cause of the prejudice were the lies that the workers taught, even while they commended themselves, twisting the Bible to do it.
Prejudice Causes Alienation
The prejudice that I had alienated me from others. They avoided me because of my weird beliefs and I avoided them because they were "evil outsiders going to hell". The Bible was used by workers to break down relationships and get people to join and form allegiances to the workers and the cult. It was not about saving people, but about using many methods to get people to join them.

|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.|
