What Shall I Do To Be Saved?

By Rev. Dr. Curian Kaniyamparambil

Question 28. St. Paul also criticizes tradition (Colo. 2:8)

Yes, this is true. What he says is "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit according to the tradition of men according to the basic principles of the world and not according to Christ." It is obvious that he is referring to philosophy and not the apostolic tradition.

Question 29. You are not redeemed from your vain conversation received by tradition
from your fathers? Then why hold on to tradition? (1 Pet. 1:18)

Here also he does not refer to apostolic traditions, but discusses the traditions mentioned in the previous question.
