Duane Topinka, Worker, Texas
Duane Topinka is a homeless 2x2 worker currently in Austin and Round Rock Texas area who lives off of what other people give him. He dresses pretty nice for being a homeless man. I guess his sole occupation is preaching, but I don't have any record of income tax returns. Brandon mentioned tipping the IRS about this. From what I can tell, he is told where to preach by Lyle Schober. Duane is "companions" with John Culver.
Duane Topinka collects money from followers like Brandon Miller. He collects money in handshakes at the ends of meetings. You can watch at the end of his meetings, stand near him and see people pass money to him.
Duane Topinka's contact information
Duane Topinka gets mail at c/o D. Carlson, PO Box 551, Round Rock, TX 78680-0551. He can be reached at 512-255-3115 or 512-310-9918. I think this PO Box must be paid for or in the name of Doug Carlson because the initials and last name look familiar. I wonder why the PO Box would be listed in his name?
2009 Oregon Special Meetigns
In 2009, Duane Topinka came to Oregon for special meeting rounds. see 2009 OR Special Meetings
Do you think this man has no income? How does he have a suit and tie and live so nicely with no declared income? How does he have a car to drive around? How would a homeless man be able to afford gas? Who pays for the car of which he benefits? If you have answers to these questions, please contact me. Thanks
Brandon Miller told me that when he was a 2x2 he enjoyed meetings with Duane Topinka and having the 2x2 workers in his home..
$100 Challenge to Duane Topinka
I believe the "older brothers", overseers, head workers etc have:
1) Come to the agreement amongst themselves, that if ANYONE (any 2x2) DARES to tell an overseer that they believe there are people saved that go to church AND don't go to meetings, that the overseer WILL JUST UP and KICK THEM OUT of the cult and tell them NOT TO TAKE PART IN MEETINGS. No "older brother", workers, or elders would dare put into writing that someone could be saved if they refuse to go to the 2x2 meetings.
2) No overseers or workers or elders would dare put in writing and sign their name to it that the cult believes in Jesus Christ being God, the Holy Ghost being God and the Father being God. (Trinity for some of you)
I will give $100 to Gary Simmons' Christian Charity (Sowers of the SEED - heartbook guy) if Duane Topinka will put this (the words in 1 and 2 below) in writing and mail it to me.
I don't think Duane Topinka would dare put such a thing in writing for fear of being kicked out of the 2x2 cult by Lyle Schober.
Just put it it writing, Mr. Duane Topinka:
1) There are people who are Christians who are saved that go to a "Christian Church", but don't go to meetings. They can be saved even if they know about the meetings and know about the workers but reject the workers and their meetings
2) Jesus Christ is God. The Holy Ghost is God and the Father is God.
And then sign your name to it and mail it to me:
I will then send my $100 to SOWERS OF THE SEED and post the receipt on the web.
My point here is to show the true beliefs of the 2x2 organization. I have put my money where my mouth is. If I'm wrong, then Mr Duane Topinka can just take up my challenge.
Are 2x2s an exclusive cult or not?
