In another thread a poster criticized tradition. Tradition is viewed as a pejorative by many on this board; as teachings of men, not of God. And while certain traditions are exactly that, not all tradition is unbiblical or wrong. Consider the words of the Apostle Paul: 1 Corinthians 11:2 Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you. The New Bible Dictionary states the following about Christian tradition: If we, as New Testament believers, follow the teachings of the Apostles, then we are following the traditions they set in place and handed down to us. To dismiss tradition entirely is to display a misunderstanding of God's word.
