Poor Me Conspiracy
I am amazed at the fantastic lies that 2x2 friends come up with to justify themselves as they try to recruit Christians and other people into professing in meetings.
I am boggled by the outrageous lies and what 2x2s say about people who warn them about the WORKERS (they bear false witness against Christians). Some of them portray Christians who warn the people being recruited as:
Yes, I know that's extreme in nature. I can hardly believe some of the stories I've heard. Hardly believe - as in how ridiculous the conspiracy theories are. And yet, what is even more unbelievable/fantastic/outrageous, is that despite the thousands of pages on the INTERNET factually and methodically documenting the 2x2 religion, is that some brutish people actually believe the 2x2 recruiters! Yes, they buy into their outrageous lies as to why people who are warning the recruits are actually jealous of the 2x2s, or that Christians are trying to brainwash their family to keep them from something good. And, to top it off, they do this while they are keeping secret their own beliefs that this person (being recruited) is going to hell if they don't profess in a worker tested meeting.
Brainwashing - It's Spiritual
Eph_6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The Challenges to the Brainwashed
Now, I am astounded. I've posted CHALLENGES to people who claim to believe that the 2x2s are of God, and I've had no takers. Per day, there are about two-hundred and fifty non-spam, non-bots unique individuals that come to this site alone (not to mention how many more go to the dozens of other 2x2 warning sites) that warn people about the child sexual abuse of WORKERS, their false doctrine and lies etc. and still, despite all the evidence, photographed records, court documents of workers crimes, quotations etc, these people who are being recruited buy into the 2x2's version that the people who are warning them have a false motive. It's beyond belief.
Cease to Listen
An important part of stopping brainwashing is ceasing to listen to outrageous lies. Because it is essential, it is commanded in the Bible in the book of Proverbs. In other words, you have to go against the teachings of the Bible in order to allow yourself to be brainwashed.
Pro_19:27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
It is well known by friends of people being recruited, that the 2x2s give counsel to break off relationships with Christians and their good friends. Isolation and separation aid them in their brainwashing and developing their conspiracy theories.
Cease to Support
The Bible helps to stop brainwashing by telling people not to support cult members who brainwash in false teachings that are outrageous.
2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
The 2x2 cult would quickly fall apart and much brainwashing be broken if people didn't support the workers. It's well known that the workers won't even work to support their own room and board, but they depend on others who are convinced that they are apostles of Jesus Christ. I firmly believe that the overseers and workers depend on naive, ignorant and brainwashed folks for financial support, without which, the organization would collapse. Giving them room and board is a sin.
What Recruits Give Up
Now, if it isn't enough to buy into a conspiracy theory of the recruiters that all these people warning them have a false motive and are liars, these people who are being recruited even give up dozen year long relationships with Christians, parents and sacrifice their own family who has raised them in order to take sides with 2x2 friends/recruiters. It's one thing for a person to join a cult out of loneliness, but quite another when a person turns down many good and healthy relationships and believe the conspiracies of cult members.
Recruits give up the blessing of wholesome Christian relationships and faith in God's WORD.
I remember Everett Swanson, preaching in Portland, Oregon about twins who came to meetings and professed. Their loving father, was going to pass, and told the two girls that they could gladly have his fortune upon his passing, if they would give up their religious cult. And Everett proudly boasted of how the two girls turned down their inheritance in order to keep going to meetings. AND if that wasn't good enough, Everett went on to say that the two girls were told by the attorney in charge, that they could deny their faith and sign, receive the inheritance, and then later join the religion again because there was nothing in the will that prohibited that. But Everett said that the girls would not even deny the overseers, workers and meetings in the home, even for just a moment. Everett was so proud of those two girls. I don't even know that the story was true.
Now, as with most stories 2x2 workers tell (especially to their own glory), I wonder if that story was even true. I've seen cases that have come close. Having personally chosen to warn people of the cult even when told by my dad that I would receive no inheritance from my mother (who has divorced my dad), I chose to do for others what I would have them do for me (warn me about the cult if I believed in false apostles and false prophets). I have no qualms with this. I sleep better at night and sometimes think of how many people have been helped simply by me and others telling the truth about what they've experienced. I count it gain (a more profitable decision) to warn others and tell others the truth. That's what I want from others too.
I was told in no uncertain terms that if I kept up this website that I would receive no inheritance from my mother. It was no sacrifice on my part for me to turn down an inheritance to keep warning others and keep this website up. And that's because believing in Jesus Christ is spiritually profitable. I've gained from believing in God. In fact, many things that Jesus Christ teaches, I don't have to take his word for any more, because I've experienced it myself. For example, Jesus Christ says to not lay up treasure on earth because moth, rust, thieves etc. I've had clothes moth-eaten. I've had tools rust and become useless. I've had thieves steal my possessions before. In part, I believe Jesus Christ because I've experienced for myself things that he has warned about. And the rest is by faith. As of yet, I haven't "seen" with my eyes any treasure in heaven, but I've got an anticipation when I read emails of people thanking me for telling the truth, that God has some treasure up in heaven for me too.
Avoid the Regret
The parallels between spiritual whoredom and physical harlotry are obvious. Listen to their warnings:
Pro 5:7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth. Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house: Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel: Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger; And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed, and say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof; and have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
Poor Me, I'm Being Persecuted
Some 2x2 recruiters, upon being questioned, pretend to take the defensive and claim that they are being persecuted for their beliefs. And when people ask questions, they get defensive, as if it were a sin to ask questions to verify what they actually believe. And yes, some people even fall for this, believing that posting their beliefs or asking them questions is "persecution" for their "faith" in the workers. It is like when people who have become kidnapped turn to have sympathy on their kidnappers, so in the same way, some people being recruited feel sorry and have compassion for the very people who are deceiving them from the beginning. It's quite a thing, so sick and so twisted.
Warn Others in Love
If you've been deceived by others, and love the LORD, then I encourage you to tell the truth about the 2x2 cult, the overseers and about the workers who are false apostles. I encourage you because it would be a help to others, and most likely help you to grow and reconcile things in your own mind as you write. I wish you well and hope that you are able to see through the wild lies, conspiracies and poor me sob stories of 2x2 recruiters who claim others are out to get them out of jealousy or to keep them from having a good time.
Long Term Damage
The very fact that so few people have publicly warned others about the 2x2 cult, having lost their childhood, adulthood, married life and for many an eternity in heaven, is a testament to the dangers of brainwashing and it's longterm effects.
There are people who have found out the truth about the WORKERS and have been so overcome with sadness and shock that they can hardly function. I know of one man with a wife, kids, job etc that recently (as of this writing) found out the origins and nature of the cult and was devastated. Yes, he was glad. Yes, he felt immense relief. But afterwards comes the immense burden of sorting through all the lies to find the truth, discover the people who were part of the teaching you a false conspiracy and were instrumental or part of the deception.
I was raised in this crazy cult. Luckily I was able to see through the nonsense at age 7, and never 'professed' despite my sibling, parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins being 100% into the mess. My mother is still in this nutty cult.
