Reasons Why I won't Attend Meetings
The workers and their followers want to get you into meetings and be quiet while their spirit works on you. Workers will even pray that their god or spirit will guide their meeting. This spirit is of Satan and not of God. read Try Spirits.
Who is Teaching?
A student becomes as their master. I have no desire to be like the workers.
Support Through Attendance
When I was a worker, we thanked people as they left for their support through attendance. When you go to attend a meeting, you are supporting and encouraging the workers. I don't want to encourage or support the workers in destroying people's faith in God and promoting idolatry of them. I don't believe in the gospel of "meetings in the home" and "homeless preachers". I believe in the gospel preached by the Jesus Christ, the prophets and apostles instead.
Also, the workers expect money in the handshakes after the meetings. As it says, "The workman is worthy of his meet/hire". I have no desire to financially support people who claim to be servants of God but preach another gospel.
Spirit in Meetings
The workers claim that there is a spirit in the meetings, and I know there is one. I prayed for that spirit to guide the meetings when I was a worker. Since the workers reject Jesus Christ as God, we know this spirit is the spirit of antichrist as described in the first epistle of John. I want no part of the spirit of antichrist.
I like the gospel message of Jesus Christ. I have no desire to hear the "Jesus" taught by the workers. I am content in Jesus Christ and desire nothing else.
The message of the workers is that they are the way. What happened to Jesus Christ being the way? They want you to profess that they are the only true servants of God and that all others are going to hell. I don't believe this message. I could not profess this message. I would have to deny God and acknowledge eternity in hell and I just have no desire to do this.
Many workers have been told of their error and sin but are too proud to change. Their pride leads to their own destruction.
Ironically, many of the hymns in the hymn book testify of Jesus Christ that he is the Saviour (God). But I wouldn't attend meetings just to sing hymns. I can play gospel music at home.
The Fruit of the Teaching
The result of the worker's preaching is division and destruction of faith in God. Since the workers don't believe in Jesus Christ as God, don't keep the will of God (the New Testament/ God's law written in minds and on hearts), then how can their work (they are called workers for a reason) accomplish the will of God? They cannot.
The Bible speaks against cult meetings and the things that the workers teach. Please consider the word of God on the workers' meetings.
Proverbs 19:27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
2x2s mock Christians and mock understanding the Bible. They don't believe in formal education. They rely on subtilties and secret teachings. They are not up-front with their beliefs.
Proverbs 22:10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.
The 2x2 overseers and workers and elders are offensive in covering up child sexual abuse and seeking the approval of each other instead of the approval of God alone. Men who sexually abused their daughters have been kept as elders. Workers who sexually abused children they just move to another field, state or country. This is sick.
Matthew 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Mark 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
The overseers and workers manipulate words and people to get what they want. They cannot be trusted and thinking about what they say and pointing out their contradictions is like trying to wash a pig while it wallows in the mud.
God does not want offenders in church. They need removed from fellowship so they cannot destroy the church. Matthew 18:15-20
They overseers practice and teach doctrines that are against the will of God: forbidding their ministers to marry/
1 Timothy 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.
Workers lie to people and deceive them about their true beliefs. Workers tell new people what these people want to hear to get them to keep coming to meetings to get them to "profess" / join their cult.
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
They hide their teachings and seduce women.
They oppress people that do want to understand the Bible and people who are starting to seek after God.
Matthew 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
They don't teach or practice the commandments of Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Say you had a son or daughter and brought them up in a school that claimed they were the best and "only" real school. And then you find out that the teachers are not trained to be teachers. They are just people off the street. And so you go to one of the classes that your student is in, and hear a math teacher teaching that 2+5 = 27. You say to yourself "WHAT!??". And you talk with the teacher, who insists that they are right and everyone else is wrong. Would you let your child still go to this school? Wake up please. Parents who are taking their children to meetings to brainwash them and lie to them about are doing themselves and their children a great disservice. If only 2x2s could be as wise about who they allow themselves to be taught by as some parents are about which school to attend. And how will God reward parents for lying to children about the origins of the cult? How will God reward the workers for lying to children and keeping them through saving faith in Jesus Christ? I may never meet you, but God knows everything about you and what you are doing. I encourage you friend, repent of your sins, quit believing the workers' lies and turn to Jesus Christ for mercy and salvation.
If the workers have been told the real gospel but they continue to lie to people in their meetings. Do you believe their intent is good or evil? If your child had a math teacher who continued to teach that 1+1 = 59, and refused to teach correct math, what does this say about that teacher? Judge for yourself whether workers are honest or they are deceiving you. It's your soul and your choice. And you bear the consequences of your influence on others and your children.
For these reasons and more I won't ever attend a 2x2 meeting and hope through the Bible that you can see that God doesn't want you to listen to their message either.

|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.|
