2x2 Religion in Minnesota

Minnesota Overseers

Minnesota, USA is home to the current 2x2 overseer Ron Thompke I believe.

Previous overseers include: Lyle Schober who is now trying his hand in Texas. Before Lyle, it was overseer Gaylen Van Loon.

See Lyle Schobers letter about Tim Severud, a 2x2 worker on the Minnesota staff convicted of molesting children. I doubt that Lyle Schober even did a background check before hiring him.

The overseer of Minnesota and his workers are anti-Christ. That is, they don't believe that Jesus Christ is God. Also, they don't believe that they should, nor do they keep the 10 commandments of God. This means they don't believe in the New Testament, which is the law of God written on our hearts. Read Jeremiah 31:31+ and Hebrews 8:8+.

1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

A 2x2 in Minnesota has no excuse. The Bible study on July 4th, 2012 was on 1 John 2.

This should give pause. If you believe that the Bible is true, and that according to the Bible that Ron Thompke is a liar and the truth is not in him, then why should you go to listen to him or his workers?

If he does claim to know God and claims to believe in the Bible, then doesn't his own Bible say he is a liar? Because Ron Thompke doesn't abide in the commandments of God, then he doesn't abide in Jesus Christ and is not in the truth.

2012 Minnesota 2x2 Bible Study List

2011 2x2 Minnesota Staff

in 2011, Ron Thompke was the 2x2 overseer of Minnesota. He only had a staff of 20 workers. Either Lyle Schober was somebody many people didn't like, or God was again not with the 2x2 workers this year. Few workers means larger fields and dwindling number of friends from which the workers leach off of and get new workers money and inheritances from.

2007 2x2 Minnesota Staff - Overseer and Workers

In 2007, Lyle Schober was again the 2x2 overseer of Minnesota. His staff of 2x2 workers had dropped to 24 in number. Evidently God was not with them this year because they were losing workers.

2006 2x2 Minnesota Staff - Overseer and Workers

In 2006, Lyle Schober was the 2x2 overseer of Minnesota. He had a staff of 27 workers.

I've read that some sister workers said that if Leslie White came to their conventions, they would leave.

My thanks to former 2x2 Minnesotans that have given me information about the 2x2 organization operating there. And my thanks for the current meeting-attendees and kids who dislike meetings, but are married to professing spouses or have professing parents and have to attend meetings but who share information.

The 2x2 religion in Minnesota is dwindling as more workers leave the Minnesota staff and are not replaced. It is evident that more of the friends are no longer buying into William Irvine's alpha message too.

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.
