Re: The real Messiah - How would 2x2s react to seeing a real miracle?
You are hardly alone in being led out by God's word. A good source of similar life stories of former 2x2s is the big book titled "Reflections" that was publidhed in the early 90s by RIS (workersect.org). One such story tells that when workers became aware that a man was being led out by the Bible those workers tried to discourage him from reading the Bible, "You are reading your Bible too much."
And those workers failed to notice their self-contradictions. Workers commonly taught that the 2x2 rule against TV, movies, and sports were based on such time waste when one would better use that time to read the Bible. And quite a number of 2x2s who actually followed that age old rule were led out by God's word - so workers were changing their tune - now in the early 90s, anyone reading the Bible at least enough to doubt 2x2ism were "reading their Bible too much."
