It is the view, not that I prefer, but makes the most sense. It never
ceases to amaze me the claims that are made for scripture which
scripture does not make for itself. If you suspect that tradition is
sufficient to establish truth then, in some quarters, tradition teaches
that Moses wrote the King James Version of the bible and that is the
version Jesus used too. But that is idiocy isnt it. And yet, it is a
tradition believed and adhered to.
Appeal to tradition to establish truth is methodologically flawed.
Moreover, it is shocking.
