There are basically two items of beliefe involved with becoming saved according to what 2x2s do call “God’s word.” They are both go pretty much together as a sort of unit. The saving good news is most clearly and concisely stated in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, “How that Christ died for our sins, was buried and was raised on the third day.” The second regards who Christ is, “If you do not believe that I am, you will die in your sins.” You muct know the reals Jesus Christ for who He claimed to be, not as a model preacher (as 2x2s view him). And if you know Him as He claimed, to be God in human flesh, and believe that He died for your sins, you become saved on the spot. And other Scriptures come into play at that juncture that tell you that of all those who the Father gives to His Son, His Son will lose NONE. Other Scriptures tell that God the Holy Spirit takes up residence inside of the person who believes and it is He who does the clean up, not the believer (who has no power to clean up anything sufficiently). In effect, once to two main essentials are believed, God does the rest, guaranteeing that the believer has already “made it” and thus can face death with assurance BECAUSE these are God’s promises.
2x2 Workers in fact, in teaching their flock that they cannot know whether or not they have “made it” until they die, are teaching the exact opposite to what God has said – so if those 2x2 preacxhers are who you are listening to instead of God, get ready because you can be sure before you die that you have not “made it.” Abraham believed God and his belief of God was accounted to him as righteousness – his belief was not perfect righteousness, but his belief was accounted by God to him as perfect righteousness (God’s GRACE alone!!!!). And the Biblical gospel spells out the same plan for you, 2x2 or not 2x2.
If you are a 2x2 facing death soon, it would do you vewry well to stick your nose in the Bible and BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAID, and let the workers fumble their own end with their false so-called “gospel.” You can know long before you die whether you have “made it” because God tells you how to “make it” very clearly – and if you are not one of God’s believers yet, while you draw breath you can still “make it” if you turn to God alone and follow HIS plan of salvation ALONE.
