29- The Apostles commanded that Tradition be preserved
St. Paul the Apostle said: "Therefore, brethren, standfast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle" (2Thess.2: 15). He also said: "But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us" (2Thess.3: 6), He also said to the Corinthians: "Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions as I delivered them to you" (1Cor. 11: 2).
We regret to say that our brethren the Protestants, in their translation of the Holy Bible (Beirut Arabic Translation), substituted “Traditions” with “Teachings”, in matters which confirm the teaching of Tradition. But kept 'tradition' for incidents relating to repugnant traditions, obviously rejected by the holy Church.
