If the ad told the complete truth, it would need to read;
These Talks (with two or three verses of the Bible here and there throughout the full hour otherwise silent) are funded by local 2x2s, meet only in homes (except these Bible Talks in this case in the Algonquin Public Library/Eastgate Branch, 115 Eastgate Dr, Algonquin, IL 60102 ) and church funded properties used where 2x2 conventions are hosted once per year in church funded buildings. The ministry is patterned after the ministry founded by William Irvine in Ireland in 1897. The meetings will consist of some hymns being sung (the only audience sounds), a prayer said audibly by each of two 2x2 preachers, and two talks are presented from a few verses of the Bible and a whole bunch of twisting of them. Very brief. Hand shaking sessions will be entertained by both preachers, during which visits, if any questions are asked, the preacher asked will ask the questioner to invite him/her or both preachers into the questioner’s home where they will do more Bible twisting in private – they are unwilling to give answers or entertain serious questions or Biblical reasoning in front of the majority 2x2 audience (which seldom if ever asks any questions after the talks). The meetings are silent except for hymns prayer and sermons, and last for an hour.
