The 2x2s believe they are God’s Only Right/True Way. No one can get to heaven unless they come to Christ through their preachers. Their Workers have a monopoly on Heaven. The 2x2s are God’s chosen people. This is the scripture they use to support this belief:
Eph. 4:4-6 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
There is no verse in the NT that implies Jesus has only one way or method for ministers to preach and believers to assemble for worship. NT references to the Way are speaking of Jesus, as in I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6). The only way to God is through Jesus–the Bible doesn’t indicate God’s only way is through the Workers.
Walking in the light means following Jesus. Light is everything that Jesus lived and taught. They believe they alone are following everything that Jesus taught; therefore, they are the only church walking in the light, and are the only enlightened ones.
I John 1:7 – But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Worker Quote: We would like to make very clear this evening that as far as God is concerned, there is but one true way on the earth that is acceptable to God. Although man had devised his own ways, there is only one Way that God accepts, and He planned it long before He ever made man on the earth. Unless we are willing to comply with the plan that God has made concerning salvation and worshipping Him, our efforts will all be in vain. I have enjoyed thinking about this one Way of Truth. (Albert Knaggs, 1973 Freedom NY Conv.)
Worker Quote: You can tell whether a church is a false church or not if it was started by a man or woman. We are the only church on earth that was started by Christ. We are God’s chosen people. Our main objectives are to serve the workers, attend gospel meetings and conventions and honor The Truth (Jack Carroll*).
Worker Quote: We do NOT accept those of different denominations as one in spirit or belief with our fellowship (Sydney Holt Letter to Paul Abenroth, Oct 4, 2001*).
Worker Quote: Behind that message from those messengers there was that voice, “this is the Way, walk ye in it.” And through the years there has never been a doubt but that THIS is God’s true Way (Clarence Anderson, Post Falls ID, 1970*).
Worker Quote: If you are going to come to God by Him, you will have to come by THIS ministry, His baptism, and His Fellowship. It is The Fellowship of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1: 3. If you come to God through Christ, you can’t come through something that He hasn’t established. God didn’t fill the world with confusion (Harry Holland, Silverdale BC Canada Conv., 1959*).
Worker Quote: God has planned a person MUST hear through one sent by God, who is living Truth as well as speaking Truth (Sydney Holt*).
Worker Quote: Now what makes this way RIGHT? Is it the 2×2 homeless ministry: Partly, but not entirely. Is it the church meeting in homes? Partly but not entirely. Is it the baptism by immersion? Partly, but not entirely. (Gaylen Van Loon, Osceola IA Spec, Mtg., 1997*).
Worker Quote: Thousands of years before the world was ever made, this was God’s plan. What you and I enjoy is what has been in the mind and will of God for countless ages of eternity before this world was ever made and will be the plan of God through the countless ages of eternity (Willie Jamieson at Funeral of Jack Carroll, Milltown WA, March 30, 1957).
Worker Quote: God’s way is for people who want to be right more than anything. We can’t separate knowing God from THIS way (Manhattan MT Conv., 1992*).
