The stories of Irvinism infiltration of other churches go right back to William Irvine, and the main source of 2x2 converts has always been so-called “conversion” of people who were already members of Christian congregations. I saw 2x2 workers at work in a major cross-denominational ‘rally’ that I attended in the mid 1980s.
One of the seldom revealed infiltrations that 2x2ism performed in recent decades is its efforts to make 2x2s out of Hutterites in Alberta, Canada. In fact I only heard a bare scratch of the story, visited the Hutterite community once with a previously 2x2 family on a business trip there and heard mainly that one or two Hutterites defected to the 2x2 “Work” during the 2x2 efforts. I heard bits of tales of early open Hutterite welcome of 2x2s turned sour when the Hutterites learned the real 2x2 aim behind those 2x2 ‘friendlies.’
And on the workers list appears today a worker by the good Hutterite family name, “Tschetter.” In fact that is the name of the Hutterite community whose minister was Jacob S. Hofer – (and that is the two names I heard in relation to the 2x2 attempt on that community during the 1990s, “Hofer & Tschetter.”
There have been a few fire with fire infiltrations of 2x2ism as a result, and I can tell you that the 2x2s get very vocal in even gutter language whenever their own sheep-thieving game is turned back on them. For example, two of us took to traveling convention to convention one year, intending convention by convention reports on the then VOT website. And we did not leave the 2x2s in the dark as they do in their sheep-thieving game – we posted notice on TMB of our intentions. We were drawn and quartered by 2x2 supporters and even a moderator, so TMB never received a single convention report. Instead, our reports were all sent to well established Christian research organizations – mainly because we no longer trusted VOT after what we got from TMB.
The 2x2s squeal like stuck pigs when their own crafty snake-tricks are turned right back on them. For contrast, the Hutterites continued doing business only with 2x2s, apparently without even increasing the prices for Hutterite produce that 2x2s wanted to buy from their community.
