Suicide by Children and Teenagers

I was thinking this morning about the two kids who committed suicide because they hated going to meetings held by 2x2 workers. That makes me sad. I don't want to see 2x2 kids committing suicide. So I've decided to do something to help young kids who don't want to go to meetings. Here are some ideas for young people to help your parents be convicted by the Holy Spirit of their sin and hopefully help you get out of going to 2x2 cult meetings and becoming a 2x2 worker.

Children

Exo 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Eph_6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Col_3:20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

If you want the help of God, then obey and honor your parents. God will use this to your advantage.

Please think about these scriptures carefully. Will you get more from your parents if you obey them or if you disobey them? If you dont' clean up your room or take out the garbage, they probably won't trust you when you want to go over to a friend's house. If you are not honest with them about whether you did your chores, then they won't trust you when you tell them about things in the Bible. If you obey God, he will be a great help to you. God knows everything and can give you wisdom and great understanding. Understanding the scripture and putting your faith in God will help you understand your parents deceptions and aid you in helping them.

Don't Fear

God knows everything. God is in control.

Laying the Foundation

A building needs a good foundation to stand. And for you to reason with your parents requires a good foundation of facts and respectful relationship. So, honor your father and mother and love the LORD.

Getting to Know Your Parent's Background

First, you need to establish some beliefs and convict your parents. Ask these questions and write down their answers on paper. I encourage you to ask these questions sincerely and calmly. Start with really simple questions. Don't ask the questions all at once. Your parents may get suspicious. Keep it simple. Ask them short questions. Let them do the talking. Don't interrupt. Listen carefully. If they say something you don't understand, ask them to explain. It may be hard for your parents, so match their pace. Listen, listen listen. You will learn alot.

Understanding Your Parents

Talk to your parents about their childhood. Find out if they were raised in a professing home. Find out their childhood. If you haven't professed in a MEETING, then your parents may think you are interested in professing and may have a talk with the workers about it. Please avoid that! I would tell my parents that I'm curious about their childhood and would like to understand them better.

You may only want to ask one or two questions per day and ask them in the context of a situation. If you ask them about their childhood while at the dentist, they will probably get suspicious. These questions are ordered from the simplest and least suspicious to "more suspicious". These questions don't require too much thought and are not necessarily convicting or incriminating on their own. Getting these answers will help build a foundation for future questions and let you know their background.

Here are some questions you could ask:

  • Where were they born?
  • Did they have brothers and sisters?
  • Did they have one father and one mother?
  • Were their parents divorced? remarried?
  • Where did you grow up? (you can probably obtain workers lists and find out the workers in their area to see who's preaching likely had an impact on them)
  • Where did they go to school?
  • Did they go to meetings as a child?
  • If so, who were the workers that were preaching?
  • Were there any workers that they admired?
  • If so, why did they admire them?
  • Were their any workers that they hated?
  • If so, why?

Ok, I'm going to interject at this point because the questions so far have been rather simple and factual in nature. There are more questions following, but they are going to bring back more memories. You need to be careful. One question may be sufficient for a whole week! Yes, be careful. One questions is going to trigger a flood of memories. And your parents are likely going to be very sensitive about these things. If you ask a question, do it slowly. Watch their reaction. If their reaction is strong, then don't ask any more questions. Who knows? They may get angry, they may get quiet. They may burst out in tears. Maybe nobody has asked them before about these things. They are going to really have to trust you to share these things.

  • Did they always like going to meetings?
  • Did they always go to conventions?
  • Did they help at PREPS?
  • Did their parents require them go to meetings?
  • Did they parents profess as a child?
  • If so, when? If not, then when did they profess?
  • If they didn't profess as a child, then were they treated differently after they professed than before they professed?
  • Were they treated as the black sheep of the family until they professed?
  • Why did they profess? (your parents may manipulate you by telling you reasons that they think you should profess rather than the real reasons why they professed.)
  • When they professed were they allowed to take the bread and grape juice when it was passed around in meetings?
  • Did they always take part in meetings?
  • If not, why not?
  • Did they like giving their testimony in meetings? (if you don't like going to meetings and giving your "testimony", then this will help your parents refelect on their memories. It's better to get your parents into the context of how they felt before they issue you orders, so they can be more understanding of your situation)
  • Did they feel like they were going to hell if they didn't profess?

Questions to Get to Know Your Parents Beliefs Toward You

Your parents probably have religious convictions that they want to impose on you. It's common and to be expected.

Remember, maybe one question on Sunday, and one question around WED meetings or BIBLE STUDIES. These keeps the questions in context. If you ask too many of these more serious questions, they are likely to get suspicious and clam up. Here are the questions and answers you will probably get based on the workers' preaching.

  • Should read your Bible? - YES
  • Should the Bible should be believed? - YES
  • Should you obey God above men? YES
  • Is it OK to ask questions like Jesus Christ said? YES
  • Should you search the scripture to see if what is taught is true? Yes (This will gives you admission by your parents that it is OK to compare what the workers teach to the Bible. It will also convict them of not doing their job of comparing the workers preaching to the Bible.

Getting these answers from your parents will help the Holy Spirit to convict them of their sin.

Here are some other important questions and topics and issues. I may not get back to this page to update it in a while, so I want to at least get these important topics on the table. Sorry if this isn't all organized yet.

  • Do your parents want you to profess?
  • Will they treat you the same as your professing brothers and sisters if you don't profess?
  • Or will you be treated like the black sheep of the family?
  • Are they going to require you to go to all the meeitngs?
  • At what age can you decided for yourself whether you want to go to meetings or not?
  • Do your parents want you to marry a professing person?
  • Do they think that only a person of the opposite sex and being professing are the necessary requirements?
  • Can you date people that are not professing?
  • Can you date a person who is not professing if there are no suitable professing people?
  • Do they want you to remain single if there are no suitable professing people to marry?

If You Don't Want to go to Meetings

If you've laid the foundation of a good knowledge of your parents beliefs, obeyed and honored them and found out their childhood and don't want to go to meetings, then tell your parents you don't want to go to meetings. If they say "NO, you must go to meetings", then obey them. Go to meetings. The Bible says to honor your father and mother. I don't believe you should not leave home before the age of 18 because you may be able to lead your parents to the LORD.

In meetings, take notes. Write down what the workers say. Write down the lies, write down the true things. If you cannot figure out what is lies and what are not lies, then you can find a Christian friend or Christian neighbor to talk to.

And after the meetings, ask the workers questions: For example: Say a worker preachs on how the 2x2s are the light of the world. And you know that the workers teach to read the Bible. Then ask your parents, after meeting in private, "If you are the light of the world, and a city that is set on a hill cannot be hid, then how come so many of our neighbors don't know anything about the 2x2 religion?"

If your parents rebuke you, you can simply tell them. "The Bible says to ask, seek and knock. And you have told me that these things, and I was following the Bible in asking them questions." "Remember what Jesus said to his parents when he was young 'Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?'"

If you parents don't know the simple answer to these questions, then ask them if you can ask the workers after meeting. If they say NO, then be assured that you have just been a witness to your parents. And also your parents are probably convicted that they have things to hide.

Another example: Ask your parents if the "message" that the workers are preaching should be shared publicly. If they say "Yes", then tell your parents that you would like to tell all your neighbors about the "message" that the workers preach. And ask for their help.

Ask them "What is the 'message' the workers preach?" And write it down.

Then ask your parents for help and go door to door greeting your neighbors and telling them the 2x2 message of how they are going to hell if they don't profess in meeting held by workers who are the only true servants of God because they are homeless and preach in pairs.

I think that if you do these things, the Holy Spirit may convict your parents that they are believing in some really weird stuff and that they should be embarrassed or ashamed of their beliefs and repent and turn to Jesus Christ.

It's my belief that if you do things like this respectfully and frankly with your parents alone that you will help your parents see their errors.
