Due to confusion resulting from misunderstandings of origins, associated names and participants, and the accidental mislabeling of what has been posted as the “Restorationist Paper Effort - Update,” we have written an attached summary history and correction.
This Guide and Standard, for want of some distinguishing title is hereby dubbed the “Nonmancaaf Swhafugs” which is the “Non Opposing, No Marketing Added, Non Compulsory, All Are Free. Simply What He Asked From Us G&S.” :)
Dear brothers and sisters,
After being impressed upon by the Lord we desire to offer to the covenant body at large a statement of principles mutually agreed upon by some few, who after petitioning the Lord over our disputes received from Him what we believe is His desire for us, not by commandment but by pure knowledge, that He would have us accept everything He has revealed to the body of believers regarding the Guide and Standard that He has required at our hands. We have therefore compiled all that has been revealed and inspired by Him into one document and we offer it together with a prayer for the Lord’s acceptance, correction, or rejection according to His word to the covenant body. We offer this prayer at His invitation and desire only to be faithful to Him but we do not know how, or though who, He may choose to answer this petition. We do not believe that this requires any covenant Brother or Sister or any fellowship to be obligated to accept this work. We believe God has made us all free and able to choose what the Lord desires for them. We do not do this to oppose or hinder any other work any covenant Brother or Sister feels impressed to do from the Lord. We support all our family and desire to assist them in any way we can. To that end we offer what we believe the Lord has asked of us. We do indeed love our covenant family and can think of no greater way to fulfill our covenant with the Lord than by this labor we personally have accepted and for which we expect to be held to account by Him.
Some few who are a small part of the covenant body.
