Common Fears of Those Leaving the Cult

Fears of people are common when thinking about quitting 2x2 meetings. Fear is instilled by workers because they are afraid that you will discover their lies when you quit attending meetings.

Common fears:

  • I'm afraid to leave because I don't know what to do.
  • I don't want to join a church because of the things I've heard from the workers.
  • I'm afraid I will lose all my friends who go to meetings
  • Will I go to hell if I quit attending meetings?
  • What will my professing parents think?
  • What will I do if my professing spouse wants me to keep going to meetings?
  • What will my professing kids think?

The fears people see when thinking about quitting meetings have most often been placed by workers themselves. They have great motivation to instill false fears in you: your continued attendance and support at meetings gives them apparent credibility, they have your house for housing, your food for food, your money for gas and things they want to buy and your trust for covering up adultery, fornication, child sexual abuse etc.

Leaving meetings is like selling bad stocks in the stock market. You hate to admit that a lot was lost and finalize this loss in the selling of it. From experience I can tell you that the 2x2 religion is far worse than bad stock. And the sooner I admitted my mistake in the 2x2 religion farce, the easier it was for me to heal. Investing more in the workers' scam will lead to more loss and more sadness.

What about going to meetings?

My biggest relief was getting away from the meetings. I didn't know why. And I probably still don't know all the reasons why it was such a relief to quit going. I know the workers say something like "Well, the reason why you have found relief is because you are no longer struggling but have given into the flesh." That was a lie to me. The workers were promoting sin, their own idolatry and their teachings and peer pressure were just dragging me down. Quitting meetings was a way for me to preserve what little sense I had gained from reading the Bible and also a way to give me space to reconsider things. After quitting meetings I felt so much better that I never went back to meetings. There was no reason to.

I found that it was a groundless, superstitious fear to quit going to meetings. I started taking responsibility for my own soul to learn about God. But we're all in habits of going to meetings (or I used to be). So do something else to take its place. Get to know God. Read your Bible and meditate on the scripture. What does the scripture say. It was a real eye-opener to me to find out what the true gospel is. . For year as a worker I talked about the New Testament. But I didn't know what it was.

Figure out what the Bible is really saying. (More on that later, see Real Bible studies) You can go visit with neighbors. Visit local churches, learn about other people. But it's very important to substitute something healthy instead of the hour long propaganda of meetings and actually learn something. We're all creatures of habit. Make a commitment to spend that hour doing something profitable instead. Did you know that there is nothing in the Bible that says "it's a sin to not go to the WORKERS MEETINGS?" The WORKERS are just false prophets used by Satan to deceive people. They are subtle and can be full of guile. God doesn't like liars and deceivers. He doesn't want you to go to the WORKERS MEETINGS. God wants you to love Him. He loves YOU. He cares about YOU. Get to know him. Can you list the ten commandments? AND how many years have you been going to meetings? OK, so we figure out later that we didn't learn much of anything in meetings. Nows the time to learn God's will and obey Him. Ok, I'll get on to the next one.

How Will my PROFESSING Parents Treat Me?

Quite frankly, they may treat you horribly. You will need to count the cost of a relationship with God. They may:

  1. Be ashamed of you. You may feel like you are a black sheep of the family. Just remember that God's grace is sufficient to get you through li>Shun you. They may not invite you to Holiday events
  2. Ignore you. They may leave you out of the loop about important family events.
  3. Defame you: "They're having emotional issues", "They're mental" and probably tell lies about you: "They're starting their own church", "They've lost out". Remember that everybody tries to justify themselves in their own eyes. It's part of life.
  4. Not leave you an inheritance

What about my spouse?

Well, I'm not married and have never been married. I cannot tell you from my own experience, except that God can see you through anything. He can complete what he begins.

Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.

If are thinking about leaving the cult, and your SPOUSE is PROFESSING and you don't have faith in God, then you are on your own. Sorry to say, many 2x2 divorce their spouse after they quit PROFESSING.

But I do know these things. God loves you. God loves your spouse. Women must submit to their husbands (as it is fit in the Lord). Men must love their wives. God said so, not me. You break the rules, you answer to Him. You love God, you're going to get the blessing, I kid you not. It's against my faith in God to go to meetings. It's against my faith in God to praise the workers who have done so much damage (oh yeah, I was a worker and deceived people to. Watch out for people who are like I was :) Paul has a lot to write about the issue. Read all about it:

Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Notice how God rewards people whether or not the spouse does. Some spouses are just lame from what I hear. Praise God that He won't let us down.

What about my kids?

Your kids may turn on you. They have typically been taught to despise anyone who doesn't go to meetings. If you've been a 2x2, then you know the teachings. Praise God you're getting out. Maybe now they will have a chance. Kids aren't naive to what goes on. They want to know what's going on. Tell them. Tell them you love God, you're tired of the abuse and you want them to grow up in a healthy environment where people are motivated by love of God and the fear of God instead of the traditions and lies of men and the slander, libel and threats of the workers. Typically, if you explain things to kids, then they will see your point of view. The problem lies with the children who won't listen to you because they are die-hard WORKER worshipers. This is one of the many problems of teaching kids cult tactics and lies. And these are the problem kids. You will probably have to win them over with good works and kindness. They may never learn to love the LORD, but I encourage you to not give up on them.

Examples of vain traditions, lies and threats

  • Vain tradition: going to meetings to be taught by uneducated people who abuse you. Why go to meeting if you don't learn anything that is useful for everyday life?
  • Lies - the group wasn't from the beginning. It was started by William Irvine. Being a 2x2 does not save you. Having faith in God does save.
  • Threats - the workers may threaten you that there will be "severe consequences". Spouses may threaten to leave you (did they really ever love you then). Relatives may threaten to shun you.

    Questions:

    1. Would you want to continue to live in a cult where they maintain order by unBiblical threats?
    2. Would you feel good about using threats to maintain control in a group of people trying to know God?
    3. Did Jesus teach people to threaten others?
    4. Did Jesus teach others to use slander to manipulate others through deception?

    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.
