Tradition and Religious Authority
A free Bible Study MP3 Audio Podcast Recording

Is tradition a proper source or standard of authority in religion? Does the fact a church has participated in a practice for years prove the practice is good or bad? What does the Bible teach about tradition? Does it matter what the source of a doctrine may be: human or Divine? Should we be traditional or non-traditional? Should we defend a doctrine on the grounds that "we have always done it that way"? Or should we seek what is new and progressive, so we oppose traditional practices as "old-fashioned" and "out of date"? Should we follow Scripture or man-made traditions?
