2 Peter 1:19 (KJV) We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
Prior to this verse, Peter is relating his own personal experiences. He then proceeds to tell us that the scriptures are more sure than even his words, the words of an apostle of Jesus Christ. Tradition is not on the same level nor is it above what is taught in the scriptures. The Bible rules.
