Are you referring to tradition or to Sacred Tradition?tuttle wrote:Ack!
So I just ran across this article today and I believe it does an excellent job in clarifying the correct view of sola scriptura. It runs along the lines of something I mentioned earlier...

If you're just referring to tradition, the what's the big deal? Okay. So you prefer roman chasubles over gothic, baroque over rococo, or one liturgical rubric over another. So?
However, if you are talking about Sacred Tradition (that paradigm which provides the Apostolic hermeneutical key and which tells us about those things which were reserved from inclusion in the Bible), then don't you need to know what is "Good Tradition" is before you can reject "Bad Tradition"? And if "Good Tradition" is simply that which jibes your Bible interpretation, then how is this any different than the "popular misconception" of Sola Scriptura?
