The most important problem 2x2ism has had right from day one is that William Irvine, its founder has taught (through generations of his dupes) most 2x2s to disbelieve that Jesus Christ is God. And their main argument against Him being God is that if He were God He would need to be His own father. And under that same argument most 2x2s reject the fact that the Holy Spirit is God. To most 2x2s God MUST be in the express image of man. William Irvine made his god in his own image, and taught the rest to worship it instead of the living God of the Bible. And for that, the Bible promises that if they do not repent (completely about face) while God gives them breath and time to do so, they are doomed by their own rejection of Jesus Christ, His Father anf the Holy Spirit.
For those who have escaped 2x2ism right from day one of it, those who have learned from God, especially who He is (by His own description) generally praise God for His merciful delivery from 2x2ism. And since day one of 2x2ism there have been many who left 2x2ism in particular in order to worship the real God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit..And these have known (will know presently) that they are saved simply trusting so because God said so in His word, just as He said He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit in His word. And for such escapees, all of the less important problems in 2x2ism have merely caused them to be the stronger believers. It is noteworthy that escaped 2x2s have been so lifted and set free in Christ by learning from God’s word just who He really is have found most Christians who were taught that fact from childhood by their church ministers to be like children who have grown weary of candy. I am, and know quite a number of former 2x2s who are as excited about the deity of Jesus and the Holy Spirit many years after as they were the moment they learned of it.
