Hold Fast Traditions from God…(2Thess. 2:15)
Inspired Word of God delivered to man through apostles…Can Hear, Read, teach, interpret and apply accurately that delivered from God to man (2 Tim. 2:2, I Cor. 11:2, 2 Thess. 3:6-15)

Inspired Word of God delivered to man through apostlesCan Hear, Read, teach, interpret and apply accurately that delivered from God to man (2 Tim. 2:2, I Cor. 11:2, 2 Thess. 3: 6-15)Progressive view:“It is healthy to keep all traditions under evaluation, because the fact is, circumstances change and culture changes, so as to render a particular tradition unnecessary or ineffective. In this case, it is time to change them.”

Inspired Word of God delivered to man through apostlesCan Hear, Read, teach, interpret and apply accurately that delivered from God to man (2 Tim. 2:2, I Cor. 11:2, 2 Thess. 3: 6-15)Progressive view:“And there is a danger involved in traditions, and that is that we can equate our interpretation of Scripture with Scripture itself…as if I know all truth, and I make infallible interpretations, at least in selective matters. But that displays pride, arrogance and ignorance, I might add.”

Inspired Word of God delivered to man through apostlesCan Hear, Read, teach, interpret and apply accurately that delivered from God to man (2 Tim. 2:2, I Cor. 11:2, 2 Thess. 3: 6-15)Progressive view:“They were not making that distinction that Jesus says it needs to be made, distinction between God’s written word and all human applications and interpretations. What we have to understand is that God’s word is absolute, but our understanding and interpretations are always relative.”

Inspired Word of God delivered to man through apostlesCan Hear, Read, teach, interpret and apply accurately that delivered from God to man (2 Tim. 2:2, I Cor. 11:2, 2 Thess. 3:6-15)Progressive view:“They were taking their inherited but human precepts that had been passed down and they were treating them as if they were doctrines or instructions from God. They put the traditions on par with the Scriptures….don’t elevate your traditions to the status of Scripture…Scripture is an obligation; tradition is an option.”

These are also traditions.

And so, we need to constantly have our traditions under evaluation, and the Pharisees needed to do that, too.”
Is “social drinking” sin?
“For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.” (I Pet. 4:3)“ an individual tradition” – (I Tim. 5:23, I Tim. 3:8)Progressive view:“…I have to conclude that Scripture does not forbid all use of alcohol. So, if that makes do not drink at all or do not touch a human application, or to put it in terms of our lesson tonight, it makes it a tradition.

These things also have to be considered.

I have to understand it for what it is, and I can’t equate it with the teaching of Scripture, and I must recognize that I am not at liberty to impose my conclusion on others and to judge people by my conclusions.”
