Does anyone know if The Truth Church is trying to organize members in Oregon County ? I have heard some discussion about it. I researched it on Google and it seems to be a cult, not a recognized church. Does anyone local know the facts about this ?

Yes..that sounds like the same one. They send same sex couples (workers) around to indoctrinate the families and talk them into donating to this cult. I read this on a website called The Truth Church. Also , several of their members have been involved in scandals involving sexual abuse of children. I may be an old fart but I believe the public needs to be aware of this.

I think if you check it on google.com , you will find out it is all true and then some. For instance, there is an entire court case listed there, case numbers and all. Another site lists info on a prison sentence handed down for molestation offenses. Yet another location on the site has a posting from a Michigan state trooper who is requesting info on certain individuals who are "workers" with The Truth Church and the "2 x 2's" named in police reports . The list goes on..... I would advise being well informed if and when you encounter this group. Naturally they will approach under the guise of religion and the word of God...it is not necessarily so. Beware of hidden agendas.

They often hold "nondenominational bible talks" in rented buildings such as libraries, conference rooms, ec. Sunday and Wednesday meetings are in homes. Members are expected to pray and speak in the meetings. Workers punish their friends by telling them they can't take part, should the friends misbehave.

Children are born to this group. They are taught that it is TRUTH and ALL OTHER churches are false. Yet workers are subtle in their teachngs by not telling "outsiders" their beliefs. To learn more, GOOGLE "Truth Meetings Board".

There are some here in Oregon county... did some research myself years ago, when I finally figured out what church they are. They do not call themselves anything, claim they are non-denominational and have no name. Other people refer to them as 2x2s or Cooneyites (taken from the name of their founder).
