11. You only have to believe in Jesus Christ to be saved. (Romans 10:13)

Matthew 15: 2-6

_______________________________________________

12. Never slavishly put tradition above God's Word.

"2 “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!” 3 Jesus replied,“And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’[a] and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’[b] 5 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’ 6 they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.

And never slavishly put Protestant tradition above God's Word regarding tradition.

2 Thessalonians 2:15

So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught, whether by word of mouth or by letter from us.

Depends on whether the tradition is Apostolic (see above), or man-made, like Luther's novel doctrine of "the Bible alone," which is not biblical or part of Apostolic Tradition.
