Paul says in 2 Thess 2:15 "15So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings[a] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth by letter." that one requires both Tradition Scripture.
Now why would you tell a story like that??? And does not mean or in Hebrew, Greek, Eubonics or pig-Latin...
You said 'or' means 'and'...No it certainly does not...Paul warned about you guys that pervert the scriptures...
But IF the scriptures said and instead of or, WHAT oral traditions were handed down from the Apostle Paul to your religion???
OR means 'pick one'...AND means 'both'...AND is not in the verse...Your religion has perverted the scripture to con you guys into believing your religion's oral tradition is real and authoritative, while declaring to you that you can't understand little words like and/or without your religion's private interpretation and guidance...

(I don't understand all that I know...)
Read the sentence -- it does not give an EITHER/OR false dichtomy denying the truth of one based on the truth of the other. Teachings as taught by word of Mouth from the Apostles are True as are teachigns as taught by letter from the Apostles.
"OR" means "pick one" if you say "Choose this OR that", but not if you say "You can learn calculus from the text book or by listening to the teacher" -- one does not negate the other
And that is the false dichtomy produced by the various solas -- God is not to be reduced to a false dichtomy.
