This site is about the "2x2 Church" which arrogantly calls itself "the truth."
They want you to believe that their church has been around "since the beginning."
But they will lie in order to convince you. The truth is, this church started in 1897.
This site tells the truth about "the truth" since those in charge of "the truth" do not.

Quotes about Salvation

Jack Forbes
The blood of Jesus can only cleanse us when we offer our bodies as a whole burnt offering. What did he do with the blood? Poured it out at the base of the altar. The difference between God's interpretation of the blood and the Pharisee interpretation which I was taught is that I thought that we had nothing to do but believe upon Christ hanging on the cross. The older I get the more I value the blood of Christ, but we shouldn't fool ourselves because the blood of Jesus can only cleanse us when we offer our bodies as a whole burnt offering.
[Milltown WA 1952] REF #166

John Cook
What is salvation? To begin with, it is God's deliverance in our lives. It is God giving us victory in our own hearts over ourselves. Again salvation is the continuation of the destruction of sin in yourself. Maybe when a person first heard the gospel he made a great attempt to destroy sin within himself. He may not be doing just as much at it now. If we destroy sin in ourselves, nothing around us can destroy us. Nothing can master a person, who, by the grace of God is mastering himself. This is salvation - being able to master ourselves. That means being the master of yourself in all things. Do not be discouraged by the fact that not many people are willing to go in for this salvation.

Heb 11 is the faith chapter. This tells us what these people did through faith. It was what they DID about their faith that saved them. Faith without works is dead. It is through our works by which we are saved.

Andrew Abernathy
God has made provision, that in our own generation, by abiding in Him, we can receive divine life. Morning by morning I can take my life and place it in the midst of the heart of God to draw from the wells of salvation, to receive of His divine spirit, to receive the quickening of divine life, that power that raised Jesus from the dead. We can receive grace that will help us walk in His way, and have a wisdom that is divine. It means nothing less than complete renunciation of all that we are.

We are never safe until we have finished our journey with Christ.

Clarence Anderson
There are things that accompany salvation and if they are not there, we will never stand. There must be a true revelation first of all, a revelation of Truth. That this is God's Way. And then there must be gratitude that is welling up in our hearts and humility of spirit and obedience of all that God asks. If these things are lacking, we will never make it, and God wants to help us so that we can have the first fruit. Have those things that accompany salvation in our lives so that we will be able to stand and have His favor and blessing in our lives and the Lord desires to continue to help us all to possess the basis.

Cult to Christ: The Church With No Name and the Legacy of the Living Witness Doctrine

Elizabeth was born and raised in a nameless and secretive worldwide cult that claims exclusive origin from the New Testament apostolic ministry and blatantly describes all other churches as 'false'. A fourth generation member, she professed faith at the age of sixteen and fully intended to remain there, even when she discovered that the system she believed in was based on a lie. A love story both human and divine, a journey from spiritual bondage to freedom in Christ; this confronting and deeply personal account gives an inside perspective into the mindset of cult members, and reveals the fear and trauma associated with being forced to investigate your own beliefs even if it could mean destroying the very foundations of everything you believe.

The author, Elizabeth Coleman, is one of our moderators at the TLC Forum!

Reflections: The Workers, the Gospel and the Nameless House Sect

This is the first of a series exploring the varied experiences of those who have come out of a supposedly nameless, world-wide religion which has managed to elude the attention of outsiders for much of its history. The accounts collected here have been written by former members, worker/ministers, and relatives. Together, they present a fascinating and rare glimpse into a religious system all but unknown to outsiders. Most of the former members who have written here were passionate believers in "The Way," before being jarred into reexamination by encounters with serious issues and inconsistencies. Far from being a clinical examination, these accounts are sometimes stirring, even heart-rending, and always bear the stamp of genuine personal experience.

Reinventing the Truth: Historical Claims of One of the World's Largest Nameless Sects

They meet in homes and in rented halls, presided over by itinerant preachers known as "Workers." This religious fellowship usually goes under the names listed above, although its members vigorously deny that the group bears any name. As to its origins, the group positions itself as being a direct continuation of "the New Testament Church." And even though they deny having any organizational structure, the activities of this nameless sect are world-wide in scope.

It is often very difficult for the outsider to gain any concrete knowledge of this group's doctrine, structure, or history. Reinventing the Truth examines these issues, focusing on the historical explanations the group has offered for its origins.

The Church Without a Name

This secretive group has been called by various names over the years: The Two-by-Twos, White Mice, Black Stockings, Pilgrims, The Meeting, The Workers, The Truth, the Secret Sect, Die Namenlosen, Les Anonymes and many others. But they claim no name of their own. Outside of the group, little has been known of the ways and the diverse belief found among believers in this homespun religion. Here is a book that exposes the origins and the unwritten traditions of the Two-by-Twos. The purpose of this book is to summarize the teachings of this religious group in order to encourage people to draw nearer to and obey God. It is an attempt to bring to light what the workers have tried to hide from the public for over a century. These are doctrines and behaviors that have been observed and learned by an ex-member whose family has been part of the group for five generations, since the founding of the religion in the late 1890s.

Reflected Truth: Former Workers and Followers Unmask Life in a Large, Little-Known Sect

TLT Home | Top of Page
Any church which bases its origin on a LIE — or conceals its history in a cover-up — has no business calling itself the "TRUTH."
Heavenly Father, we pray for John that his eyes might be opened and that he might be set free from the bondage of being a worker.
