Spirit of Whoredoms
Years ago, when I made the connection that the OVERSEERS and WORKERs operated in a similar way to pimps and harlots. This similarity was striking and has many parallels. Recently I've found Bible verses that relate whoredoms to people spiritual being unfaithful to God for the sake of money. Here's what I've found.
Whoredom is when a person has sex with someone else and most often for money. Not all people who do business as male or female harlots do it out of necessity of money. The typical harlot is a married woman, not a single "loose" woman. See for example, this story in Proverbs:
God Given - Instructions of Fathers and Law of Mothers
It's important to first state that God gives warnings and instructions from parents to preserve their children. And children who refuse their parent's instructions are prime candidates for harlots and wicked men. Proverbs is a book of wisdom and warnings that Solomon gave to his children. It is full of great instruction. Again, to be clear, rejecting a parent's instructions is the first step in the downward road. Fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Pro 1:1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; to know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; to give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: to understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
Pro 6:20 My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Pro 7:1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
It's common for people who get involved with the WORKERS, MEETINGS and 2x2 recruiters to have been warned by their parents and friends but have neglected those warnings. I've had several people contact me who were dating a 2x2 and trying to figure out the religion. I've only seen one person so far reject their parents warnings and live with a 2x2 and then marry them. Typically once people see the teachings of the 2x2s, they break off the relationship quickly. Usually, the relationships have already been rocky because of differences in beliefs.
Hos_4:12 My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
Harlots have their enticement. They dress with lots of skin showing. They may dress flashy to draw attention to them where their revealing apparel tries to keep people's eyes. WORKERS have their enticement too. They appear to be so innocent and devoted to following the Bible. They despise the conventions of the Bible and conventional doctrine. They claim that their is no harm in breaking the commandments of the Bible just like harlots don't care about their immodesty and their business. Harlotry is rarely considered a legitimate business in the USA. And the WORKERS don't document their business. It's a for-profit business and not registered as a church or non-profit with the IRS. I was told by the OVERSEER Harold Bennett that he doesn't pay taxes and neither does his STAFF of WORKERS. Harlots flaunt their disregard for decency just like the Oregon STAFF of WORKERS flaunt their disregard for the laws of the land by not filing tax returns.
Harlots rely on their looks, availability and "willingness" for attracting men. They do not rely on virtue. This is similar to WORKERS who rely on their cleverness and not on goodness, honesty and virtue to attract people to their way.
Flattery is a common element associated with harlots and wicked people who deceive in order to get their way.
Pro 2:16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.
Pro 6:24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
Pro_7:5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
Pro_20:19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.
Pro_29:5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.
Psa_36:2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
Smooth Talkers, Changeable Ways
Pro 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
Because of the words "strange" and "changeable", this Proverb reminds me strongly of:
Heb_13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
I was initially frustrated after leaving the cult with trying to nail down the problems with the cult. Of course, the greatest hindrance was not understanding the Bible very much. Another of the frustrations was how the WORKERS lied to cover up what they had done and concealed what they really believed. They were very secretive and smooth talkers. They knew how to lie about what they did and appear so smooth and innocent.
No Repentance and Ignorance
Hos_5:4 They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.
These verses show how these people (that Hoseah was writing to) would not frame (put into words) what they had done and they didn't know God. This is very much like the WORKERS. Just look at the OVERSEER Jerome Frandle, using his lawyer to deny that he was clergy. He didn't confess to his crime. Harlots may hide what they do, and they don't know God either. The WORKERS have so many teachings that the FRIENDS pick and choose what to believe in, just like a house of harlots, one for anyone's taste.
Flee the Harlot
Pro 5:8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house: Pro 5:9 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!
The Bible teaches to stay away from harlots. Inviting a harlot into your house will lead to destruction, just like going to MEETINGS and inviting the WORKERS into your home. The Bible teaches:
Pro 19:27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
Pro 6:12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.
These verses reminds me of the WORKERS who teach through insinuation and are not honest enough to publish their teachings on websites. I believe their hearts are wicked and deceitful. WORKERS turn people against their parents and Christian friends and try to sow discord in families and win their trust. They use praise and flattery and attention to get them to come to MEETINGS.
Disregard for God - Secrecy
The harlot does her dirty work in secret. She takes her captives to her room so they can be alone. They may feel that God does not see. So the WORKERS love to get alone with their new recruits and teach them their ways. They must believe that God doesn't see what they are doing. And I've seen the pattern with new 2x2 recruits that they do things and hide things and believe that God doesn't see what's going on. The Bible teaches us that God sees all and is the one who rewards us for our deeds. I think these verses are relevant too:
Pro 5:20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger? For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings. His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins. He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
Rejecting God's Choice
God gives us things to enjoy in life. And the Bible teaches us to enjoy what God has given us. The Bible teaches those that are married to enjoy their own wife and keep from adultery. Just like God has given us the gospel and wisdom from above and don't need to be enticed away to flattery, lies and the enticement of WORKERS.
Pro 5:15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well. Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets. Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee. Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
Secrecy and Darkness
People who are trying to find out someone's 2x2 religion, they comment on how secretive the 2x2 religion people are. It's like trying to see in the dark, very difficult and strenuous.
Pro 7:9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
Just like the WORKERS who love the darkness of secrecy, the harlots come out at night. And like the harlots, I have found the WORKERS to be subtil of heart.
Stubbornness, Leaving Home
Stubbornness is characteristic of the WORKERS, just like it talks about harlots who don't abide in their home. I can understand a harlot would not like the advice of her parents at home if she is loud and stubborn. Some people who have written have commented on how stubborn the FRIENDS are and how they refuse to directly answer simple questions.
Pro 7:11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
This is similar also to the WORKERS who don't abide in the teachings of Jesus Christ or abide in the house of the LORD. WORKERS plan on recruiting people and have much time to wait for people to "COME AROUND".Some WORKERS wait for years for people to PROFESS and pass information about them to the next WORKERS who come to the FIELD where the potential recruit lives.
I think that the words "fair speech" is a good description of WORKERS' preaching. Just like harlots causing people to commit adultery, in a similar way the WORKERS flattering and saying pleasing lies to people causes them to commit by PROFESSING in MEETINGS. Like the sad end of those committing adultery, so is the sad end of those who PROFESS and deny the LORD.
Pro 7:21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
Pimps have harlots that they protect. And harlots work for pimps who will protect them. This reminds me of the OVERSEERS who keep the WORKERS on their staff if they follow the the OVERSEERS instructions. OVERSEERS have tried "protect" pedophile WORKERS and WORKERS who commit adultery by moving them to other FIELDS or States.
Each year, the OVERSEERS used the WORKERS in charge of CONVENTIONS to gather money from all the WORKERS. This reminds me of how pimps gather money from their harlots.
Harlots Kept Poor - No Place to Go
Just like harlots may not leave an abusive pimp because they may have no other place to go, the WORKERS are in a similar fix. They have no car, little money, no house and their friends typically all are in the 2x2 religion and would not sympathize with them leaving.
Addicts - Hooked on Drugs
Many harlots are addicted to drugs and use their business to gain more drugs. They are addicts and their pimp supplies drugs for their addiction. In a similar way, WORKERS are "addicted" to the belief that they are the only WAY and that people can only be SAVED by them. It's like this belief is their drug that they cannot obtain anywhere else. If they were to leave the 2x2 religion, they would not be able to get the support from the FRIENDS to continue this belief. I believe that it is only until after WORKERS realize that it is just another man-made religion that they can break this addictive cycle that controls their mind. Once WORKERS start believing in God, they see the OVERSEER - WORKER relationship for what it is. What other jobs would require you to be homeless, never marry, give away all your money each year to your boss etc? Does it sound abusive to you and like the OVERSEER is abusive and manipulative and not loving?
If you love the WORKERS WAY and believe that they are the true apostles of God and believe that Christians are going to hell because they fellowship together in church buildings, please share your name and city,state with the world. You can put phone number and/or email also so people can contact you. Just send it in the link below.
I can see many parallels between pimps and harlots and the OVERSEERS and the WORKERS who work for them. I believe this is the spirit of whoredoms.
