Similarly, I know of some young men who offered for the Work who were troubled and asking God to remove their sexual desires when they became 2x2 preachers. Several of them did not make it beyond a year as workers - one of them told me after leaving the Work that he no longer trusted God because God failed to remove his sexual desires and he then was tearing himself to ribbons for taking advantage of a daughter in her parents home, still not considered of legal age.
The 2x2 demand of 'celibacy,' understood by most 2x2s to mean complete sexual abstinence has destroyed most 2x2 preachers - God never asked preachers to be single, let alone 'celibate' as is easily seen of the apostles who were married, maintained their own homes etc. etc. etc.
Ifeel very sorry for all 2x2 workers, but they will not listen to the gospel of the Bible. In fact most of them get downright 'angry' at anyone who tries to point out where their messages are very dangerously WRONG.
