Looks Like a First Debate for the Blog

The first debate looks like it will be between an Internet poster named "Orthodox" and the present author, on the topic:

Resolved: "It is tradition, look no further" is less workable as applied to the theological content of the Westminster Confession of Faith than "The Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it."

You'll recognize that the former mantra is attributed to an early Greek father, and the latter mantra is attributed to "fundamentalist" adherents to Sola Scriptura.

By way of clarification of resolutional intent, it is resolved that the former mantra does not work as well as (it's not as practical, as feasible, or as handy as) the second mantra when it comes to discussing theology (taking the WCF contents as an example of theology).
