No. 301 The Apostacy And The Restoration, n.d. [1916] (PDF) No. 301 The Apostacy And The Restoration, n.d. [1916] (PDF)
by John W. Rushton
20 page tract by Apostle John W. Rushton of the RLDS Church. Brother Rushton states, "One of the most prolific sources of misunderstanding in regard to religion is the refusal to acknowledge that there has been a universal departure from the original gospel as taught by Christ. Most people are aware that such an event as the Reformation was the reactionary result of the great abuses which had obtained in the Roman Catholic Church; yet it seldom occurs to the minds of these people that to concede the need of a reformation is a tacit admission that an apostasy from the true gospel had taken place; otherwise the so-called reformation was not only unnecessary, but actually an evil."

No. 1161 Creed Making, n.d. [1922] (PDF) No. 1161 Creed Making, n.d. [1922] (PDF)
by Isaac M. Smith
26 pages. Tract by I. M. Smith. He states, "the principle it teaches is applicable to every revelation that God has ever given to man, whether the revelation be long or short, whether it contains ten words or ten thousand words. Man has no right to add to nor take from anything that God has given-has no right to do so now, never did have the right to do so, and never will have. You will remember the text says: 'If any man shall add to,' or 'take from,' etc., nothing said about what God proposes to do in the premises; there is nothing said about whether he will give more revelations, or whether he will withhold them. Mind you, he places this restriction upon man, and leaves himself free to do as seemeth him good."
No. 1216 The Old Jerusalem Gospel Restored No. 1216 The Old Jerusalem Gospel Restored, n.d. [1900] (PDF)
by Arthur B. Phillips
Twelve page tract published by the RLDS Church. Elder Phillips states, "While divers creeds and doctrines of men are being preached throughout the world, honest-hearted men and women everywhere are longing, and their souls yearning, for the truth as Jesus and his disciples taught it; and while they pant for a refreshing drink from the fountain of the 'water of life' at which disciples of olden time were so freely filled, their eager hearts are again and again disappointed by the mirage - seemingly so real - which the delusive theories of men present before them. To such this message is addressed with confidence, nay, with certainty, that if they will step out into the sunlight of God's love by obeying the gospel as taught by those whom he has sent to proclaim it, as found in his word, their hungry souls will be fed, and their drooping spirits refreshed by that heavenly power which the followers of Christ in ancient time enjoyed."
