The purpose of this note is to simplify the general resistive stability condition, obtained previously by the author, by restricting the space of test functions to a physically desirable space. Simplified versions of the stability function result, making its evaluation and minimisation more tractable. In the case of special force-free-fields the simplified function reduces to a good approximation of the exact stability function derived by other means. In this case the condition is sufficient for nonlinear stability.
