The purpose of this book is to summarize the teachings of this church in order to encourage people to draw nearer to and obey God. This is not a comprehensive report done by the church ministry. It is being published because they refuse to document what they believe. It is an attempt to bring to light what they have tried to hide from the public for over a century. These are things that have been observed and learned by an ex-member whose family has been part of the church for five generations. I am deeply indebted to hundreds of people who have contributed to my understanding of what has been hidden so well for so long.
It is not my purpose to draw attention to, or criticize any particular worker. Most of the quotations are from well known senior workers or head workers and from the founder, William Irvine. The purpose is not to condemn this church, for the people are truly serious and sincere in their beliefs and desire to serve God. There is no church on earth without problems or ignorance on some point of scripture. My own observations are not the last word on any subject, either. I am only bringing to light the literal view of scripture so that the readers can judge for themselves what makes better sense. Read Revelation 1-3. It is time for every Christian to examine himself and what he has been led to believe about salvation. It is also time to witness to the world that Jesus is the only Way and Redeemer, the only Mediator between God and man. The Way isn’t a Church. Jesus Christ is the Way.
This is the third printing of this book. It was previously published under the pen-name, David Stone, in the hope that our professing family members would not be troubled by my work. They have not taken an interest in this topic and we are still praying for them.
I had been totally committed to the Two by Two Church and for most of my life had attempted to draw others into its system. Since I came to know the real Truth about Jesus, Who He is and what He did for me, can I do anything else but testify of His grace, mercy and love to the world and especially to those who are still in bondage to William Irvine’s doctrine?
