I'm a baptist, but i'm not sure how those more educated than myself would respond to such a question. On another forum someone brought up the topic of tradition, the true church, etc. This person holds that the apostles passed down all the true doctrine, etc, and that it's been passed down through tradition and stuff. So, anyone who isn't part of this church and this tradition doesn't have all the truth. I mean, it seems logical that the apostles would give some word-of-mouth instructions to those who were following them, but how would an educated Baptist reply to this person who thinks that the RC church has authority and the true tradition?
