Back in the late 1960s, Gillquist and some friends were "looking for the true New Testament church," said his wife, Marilyn, who participated in this venture. "We had become convinced that the church was the means to fulfill the great commission," he later wrote. But based on the Protestant doctrine of Sola Scriptura there should not be any inconsistencies.. Since there has been no change in the proportion of Mormons prior to the frame switch nor any since the switch and since the 1983 split frame experiment shows the same pattern (Peterson and Smith, forthcoming), we know that this "increase" in Mormons is entirely artificial.

The fasting rules, among other things in the Orthodox Church, are not ends in themselves, but a means to reject our self that we may gain a True Self in Christ.12 It is true that, on the outside, the structure of the Orthodox Church seems excessive and rule-based.
