1Co 9:5 Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?
1Co 7:34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.
1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
Mat 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
The teaching of the Bible is that the apostles of Jesus Christ had power to have a wife. The OVERSEERS forbid their apostles (people sent out by them) to marry. If they marry, they are kicked out. This is against the will of God, against sound doctrine, leads to sexual misconduct and turmoil in WORKERS lives and because they refuse to quit this teaching, they cover up the messes it causes. They move pedophile WORKERS from field to field and WORKERS have affairs with married PROFESSING men and women.The OVERSEERS know about all this mess because they caused it, they have heard the stories (reported to them by other OVERSEERS, WORKERS, ELDERS and PROFESSING folks and have covered it up for years. More recently they are hearing from the authorities as these WORKERS' crimes are being prosecuted by local governments. Lives are being destroyed and the children who are sexually molested in their own homes by the WORKERS are suffering the most. Obviously this "religion" is the work of the devil and not of God.
The OVERSEERS cast a snare for the WORKERS by forbidding them to marry. How? Most WORKERS (if not all) are not fit to be celibate. They cannot control themselves. But many "feel called" to be WORKERS. But if they marry, then they are kicked out. But if they stay in, they cannot control themselves and take advantage of little boys and girls in the homes they are staying in. They know what they are doing is wrong, but if they get married, then the WORKERS are scorned for leaving the 2x2 WORK. So they are in a pickle. Either they have to admit that the OVERSEERS are casting a snare for them by teaching and practicing false doctrine (and hence what they thought was "God's Way" is not) or they have to try to overcome through their own self-will (in which they fail miserably). And so as they fall deeper into sin (and never repent, reconcile or make amends for their multitude of offenses), then they finally talk to the OVERSEER and the OVERSEER moves them to another field where they repeat the same behavior on other unsuspecting folks (who have never been warned of a pedophile in their FIELD).
So if you love sin, love pedophiles and hate little children, then by all means PROFESS your love for the OVERSEERS heresies and snares and condemn the WORKERS who are not able to do the WORKS that the OVERSEERS require.
But if you love God, then read the Bible, lay hold on sound doctrine (the Word of God) and confront the OVERSEER in your area. First, make sure: Ask if they teach that WORKERS may not marry. If he (OVERSEERS are always male) says that they don't teach this, then ask him to put it in writing and make copies to distribute. If the OVERSEER does teach this false doctrine, then show him the verses in the Bible and tell him that "This is offensive to me that you teach false doctrine that snares WORKERS." And ask that he cease and desist. If he refuses, then show him Matthew 18:15-21 which is the procedure by which people are to be restored after offending. If he does not repent and will not hear you, then give him some time to think it over. If after this time has elapsed, he will not repent, then take 1-2 witnesses with you and set a time to meet again. You probably will not find anyone to go with you to confront the OVERSEER with their offenses. This is a good exercise for you if you are a 2x2. You get to see that 2x2s already know that OVERSERS do the WORK of the devil (not of God). They know that if they go as a witness on this matter, they will get kicked out of the cult. They would rather continue the work of the devil rather than repent and come into the light. But let's say that you find someone...Bring up the issue again with the witness present..If he won't repent, then try to get the "2x2 church" together..I predict this won't happen.
They will probably kick you out for daring to question them and for daring to stand up for what is in the Bible. And they will be upset that you are defending the poor sexually abused kids.
If you don't believe in the Bible, are fearful of the OVERSEERS and WORKERS and wish to continue to fellowship with people preaching false doctrines that oppresses people and destroys childrens lives, then you can look forward to going to hell. And I encourage you to not try to claim that your 2x2 group is the only way to heaven and try to get people to PROFESS when you choose hell over heaven.
