With the above stated, I ask you, how can anyone give reasons for their beliefs directly out of God’s word if such a person does not know what he/she believes or why? And how can anyone know what he/she believes and why unless that person has studied everything he/she believes well enough to point to why he/she believes it.
Let me simplify this by analogy. Supposing that cyanide was on the shelf in a store with a warning on the label that warned that ingestion of it will kill you. Would you be offended by that warning on that label? Not likely. Would you try out ingesting a tiny bit of it to test that warning? Not likely. Now suppose that the label bore a recommendaed doseage of one teaspoon ingested per day until you no longer need to take any more. That is the same as a cult labelling its eternal deadly poison such that those deceived into taking a daily does of it are spiritually DEAD for all eternity. One might wonder why anyone would be offended by the label Biblical Christians apply to such groups to WARN people that it will kill your soul if you join and believe its poisonous teachings until you physically die.
And what could be more loving than to warn others of such poison in what they are believing?
Christian apologists would be the first to support your freedom to believe anything you want to believe, and most of them say so up front. But Christians are instructed to warn others of beliefs that endanger their eternal destiny – and good Christian apologists will always point directly to God’s word as the reason for their warnings.
2x2ism is an anti-christian cult just as it publicly teaches deadly doctrines – God’s word shows that Jesus claimed to be and is God in human flesh – 2x2ism not only does not teach that Jesus is God, it adamantly denies that Jesus is God. Its clergy are all anti-Christs. And if you believe te errors they teach until you physically die, God says you will “perish” eternally. Now that does not mean that if you are currently in the 2x2 group not knowing that its workers teach heresy, you are beyond hope. God can pull people out of a heap of manure, and turning to God’s word alone to seek His plan of your salvation (with prayer and dedicated Bible study) is what the 2x2 label should tell you its self. But instead, the 2x2 label tells you that the 2x2 church is “the only way” to heaven – just like a bottle of cyanide on a store shelf bearing a label recommending that you ingest a teaspoon a day until you do not need to take any more.
