Is a church tradition bad?

The always helpful Carl Trueman speaks about being a false teacher. He discusses ordination and identifying yourself within a church tradition. Here is the punchline, at least in my book:

Some might be tempted to cry `Popery and Catholicism’ at this point, the `t’ word being as welcome in many evangelical quarters as a gold lame suit and matching platform shoes at a Led Zeppelin reunion concert; to which I would simply respond that every Christian stands in a tradition; the key is whether you are prepared to make your tradition public, so that it can be scrutinized by others, and whether you are prepared to norm it by scripture.
