Hello, I’m new on CAF and this is the first time I’ve posted in this forum. I’ve wanted to find the answer to this question for a long time.
Some protestants belief that we should only believe what’s found in the Bible. They don’t accept Sacred Tradition. If we should only believe what’s in the Bible how did the first christians know what to believe? The church came first not the Bible. Without a Bible how did the first christians know what to believe? I believe the church came about on the first Pentecost. Do protestants think that the church’s start was delayed until the Bible was produced? If they do what do they believe happened in the hiatus between Christ’s Ascension and the production of the Bible?
What I’m saying is that what christians believe must have come from the oral tradition from the time of the apsotles. How can protestants say everything we need to believe can only be found in the Bible and reject Sacred Tradition?
