[quote:3fgwxk39]Weather, not to be contrarian, but doesn’t your example of the “telephone” game discredit oral tradition and bolster Ron’s argument that the written word is the trustworthy source?
I mean, it could be said that the tradition has been through a 2,000 year game of telephone, whereas the Scripture was written down soon after the events and not changed.[/quote:3fgwxk39]
[color=red:3fgwxk39]Most non-Catholic denominations say the Catholic Church belives to much in Tradition.First of all what is the stumbling block about this and what is wrong with being traditional??. Tradition in the dictionary is defined as “the oral transmission of events,opinions,doctrines,practices,etc.,through successive generations without memorials; that which is so handed down; ancient custom.” Amen to that,I hope the Catholic Church continues Tradition till the end of time.[/color:3fgwxk39]
