Now, he's making the Old Testament the rule of faith

Back on the Berean article, the same guy is making the Old Testament the rule of faith and of higher authority than the New Testament.

I'm sure he's doing it unintentionally.  But it just goes to show how much (or how little) they understand what they are reading in Scripture.  Here's an excerpt of the discussion.

>>>Tradition, magisterium, and Scripture were all present,>>>

Which means that Scripture is not alone.

>>> but Scripture was alone as the most authoritative rule of faith and life.>>>

You do realize that the Bereans were searching in the Old Testament, right?  So, what you are saying is that the Old Testament is the most authoritative rule of faith and life?

>>>After all, the Bereans examined the tradition>>>

The "word".  They equated the "traditions" with the "word".  And they received it with all readiness.

Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

They received the “word” of God.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

 ye received the word of God which ye heard of us

>>> according to the standard of the Scripture. >>>

According to the Old Testament.

So, you’re arguing that the Old Testament is a more authoritative rule than the Word of God which the Bereans received from the Church.

Essentially, you're saying that the Old Testament is more authoritative than the New Testament, because the Apostles were teaching the New Testament Traditions of Jesus Christ before they were written down in Scripture.

You do realize this, right?
