Wayne Harris used to be a 2x2 worker in Oregon. His last year in the work was in 1989. After being in the work, he went to live with his wealthy mother Dorothy Harris near Corvallis, Oregon.
Wayne Harris is an Accomplished Pianist
Wayne Harris is an accomplished pianist. He often plays the piano for many of the 2x2 meetings, weddings and funerals. Since Wayne Harris is so well known by the 2x2 FRIENDS in Oregon, some offer what looks like his recordings for sale. See http://rkivs.com/digitalmusic/
Exworkers Speaking at Meetings But Never Christians
My first year in the work, Randy was sick on a WED,THU or Sunday and was not well enough to speak at meeting. So Randy had Wayne Harris take the meeting. This is very interesting and shows the politics and priority of the 2x2 cult. I was a worker and should have led the meeting because Wayne Harris had left the work (not that I wanted to lead the meeting). But here Randy put Wayne Harris in charge of the meeting. This shows how there is an inner circle of Workers and Exworkers and the focus is on their cause of promoting the cult beliefs. Christian preachers are NEVER invited to speak at a meeting. I have gone to meetings for 33 years since a baby and have NEVER seen a Christian preacher speaking at a MEETING, SPECIAL MEETING or CONVENTION. They would rather have a WORKER who dropped out speak at a GOSPEL MEETING than have a Christian preach at a GOSPEL MEETING. But this does not show the extremity with which they hate Christians.
Wayne Harris Told Me About WORKERS Changing Doctrines
I met with Wayne Harris to talk with him about the divorce and remarriage issue in Oregon. He told me that Matthew 18:19 is used by the "older brothers" to support them deciding on doctrinal issues. The lesson was that if two or three older brother workers decided it's OK to divorce and remarry, then God would comply with the older brother workers decision.
Mat 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
That is a really interesting teaching on Matthew 18. In fact, it's laughable. I know the 2x2s in large believe that everyone else is going to hell except them. They believe that they are the one true FOLD and that all lost sheep will come to meetings and PROFESS. But somehow they believe that if three of the OLDER BROTHERS agree on something, God is going to change his mind? I know that's a conceited view. I know that this is used to make workers quit the work based on the opinion of the OLDER BROTHERS. Can you imagine how scary it would be if you didn't know God and were a younger work - an OLDER BROTHER WORKER coming up to you, telling you of their decision and quoting Matthew 18:19 when you didn't know the Bible. You would probably think you are going to hell if you don't agree with them. And this is the exact kind of scare tactics that the WORKERS use on THE FRIENDS and THE FRIENDS use on each other. They scare each other because of their superstition, ignorance and disregard for truth.
These verses are completely taken out of context by Wayne Harris and the OLDER BROTHERS to support someone changing a doctrinal issue that Jesus Christ is totally clear about. Matthew 18:15-20 is used to try to restore a fellow Christian to fellowship, and failing that, to remove them from the church so that they can see how their eternal salvation is affected by their decision to offend others on doctrinal issues.
Wayne Harris Buying Beer and Cigarettes for a Younger Man
Recently, I have been told by a parent that Wayne Harris is living with his son and buying him beer and cigarettes. This is extremely suspect to me. First, the 2x2s don't smoke or drink typically, and so there must be something that Wayne Harris wants from the young man. I have never known Wayne to date a woman and has never been married.
Not So Honorable
I thought it was more honorable that Wayne Harris left the work. But after I was in his field during my first year, he was back in the work with Dave Nealon.
Here's a comment by a writer using the pen name of "Dirk". Be aware that most people who are pro-cult don't give their name or email address but give a false name and use a proxy because they are afraid to be identified with their own behavior. So here's what they wrote and my questions will follow so you can see they hypocrisy and poor logic of cult members and those who love the religion they call "the truth".
You disgust me. I left the truth a long time ago. But the people in the faith are not in a cult, not false prophets etc. Wayne Harris is an honorable man. He Married me and my ex wife, he was very kind and a friend to us both. I lost touch with him when I left the truth...but my leaving had NOTHING to do with the faith...but everything to do with me and the demands of my parents and the truth. Your attempts to sully and dirty Wayne and his reputation are disgusting...and you should be ashamed of your self. Even if he did buy beer and cigarettes for someone, which I doubt...who the hell are you to judge? especially with second hand information. You're just a gossip, and IMO a pretty sad & petty one at that
Obviously, I cannot reply to this writer since they didn't leave an address. I doubt the name is real. But here's some questions so you can see through what they write:
