Objections Examined [The Gospel Banner vol. 8 no. 2], 1901 (PDF) by Joseph Smith III see also The Gospel Banner 48 pages. Sermon by President Joseph Smith III of the RLDS Church, delivered on September 2, 1900. He makes a statement regarding Joseph Smith, Jr (his father) seeing an angel in the grove during the first vision experience, "I may be pardoned this morning if my discourse be somewhat discursive, and I review, as rapidly as I may, some of the things which have been done in the spiritual realm of controversy since this church was organized April 6, 1830. In the first place the statement made by the angel to him who was chosen as the earthly instrument by which the church should be represented abroad, and should find its organization, was that the declarations of belief, or the creeds, were an abomination in God's sight."
The Old Jerusalem Gospel Restored No. 1216 [Tracts By Numbers], n.d.  (PDF) by Arthur B. Phillips see also Tracts By Numbers 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."

Our Living Creed [from Zion's Ensign vol. 39], 1928 (PDF)** by F. Henry Edwards see also Zion's Ensign **This electronic publication has been created with the express approval of the original copyright holder, The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints (Community Of Christ) Article by F. Henry Edwards of the RLDS Church. He states, "The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has never adopted a creed. This is not because we are without deep convictions in matters of fundamental Christianity, nor is it because we have been blown about by every wind of doctrine; it is rather because we believe that a gospel so rich and vital as the good news of Jesus defies our attempts to confine it in words and phrases. To attempt such a task would be like trying to measure the promise of youth with a foot rule, or to describe the glory of a sunrise to a blind person. Words are too inert. Only life can tell."

Brother Oakman states, "Brethren, there is an outer, external world which is designed to minister the life of God to us. And there is also an invisible, interior, inner world, and it is this invisible interior world, the world that is within us, with which we have to do, so terribly important. And, all of the apparatus known to us as the universe, the whole flux of things created, the presence of our fellow men, our heritage, history, all things, are designed that we may take them inside us. And that there may be created in us, in each one of us a universe of discourse, which shall be truly in harmony with the Spirit, and the mind, and the will of our Heavenly Father."

He states, "Latter Day Saints believe the Bible more fully, more completely than many other peoples who conveniently ignore or overlook whatever does not agree with their hereditary doctrine and teaching." And, "The Bible is, and will continue to be, our standard of belief, against which we check all doctrine, all church organization, all ritual, all morality and ethics. The Bible is and will continue to be the compass that points us to God, the manual which we follow in our striving and seeking for eternal life.
