Scripture and Tradition? Where does Tradition stand?
We will continue the 2 Tim and 1 Thess here. I will bring the last posts from each thread here.
Let me define the thread subject here. We all agree that Scripture is foundational to the church, but where does tradition stand and what tradition.
Some questions -
Is a tradition considered to be apostolical even though it is announced and defined at a later date?
Must a tradition have some other supporting evidence or is the church's "word" good enough for it to be considered canonical?
Is Dogma tradition or just a church's view?
What support must a tradition have to be canonical? (such as multi-church support?)
Are views and teachings about a tradition also tradition or just a church's opinion?
