In fact, he could trust little else other than his perception of God’s personal revelation and the fact that his experience of this revelation is shared by the entire Mormon community. This sort of faith is, in my mind, not unlike to the sort of Christian faith held by many western believers.

Unless orthodox principles and truths, like those of the Network charter or those currently being articulated by the Common Cause partners are established as the boundaries and foundations of this new structure, the new structure will be subject to the same creeping revisionism that destroyed the old and many of our separated orthodox brethren will be unable in good conscience to take part in the reunification.
