Default Bible only is anti-Biblical:

This is actually what Sacred Scripture says:

About Tradition:

{4:31} And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered was moved. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. And they were speaking the Word of God with confidence.

{6:7} And the Word of the Lord was increasing, and the number of disciples in Jerusalem was multiplied exceedingly. And even a large group of the priests were obedient to the faith.

{10:8} But what does Scripture say? “The word is near, in your mouth and in your heart.” This is the word of faith, which we are preaching.

[2 Thessalonians]
{3:6} But we strongly caution you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to draw yourselves away from every brother who is walking in disorder and not according to the tradition that they received from us.

Sacred Scripture is one of our Three Pillars of Faith, but it’s not all:

{16:12} I still have many things to say to you, but you are not able to bear them now.
{16:13} But when the Spirit of truth has arrived, he will teach the whole truth to you. For he will not be speaking from himself. Instead, whatever he will hear, he will speak. And he will announce to you the things that are to come.

{21:25} Now there are also many other things that Jesus did, which, if each of these were written down, the world itself, I suppose, would not be able to contain the books that would be written.

[2 John]
{1:12} I have much more to write to you, but I am not willing to do so through paper and ink. For I hope that I may be with you in the future, and that I may speak face to face, so that your joy may be full.

[3 John]
{1:13} I had many things to write to you, but I am not willing, through ink and pen, to write to you.

Now, notice how St. Paul mentions “Jannes and Jambres” as resisting Moses, however, these two names are nowhere to be found in the O.T. of Sacred Scriptures. Was he lying or making that up?... No, he knew that by Tradition*.

[2 Timothy]
{3:8} And in the same manner that Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so also will these resist the truth, men corrupted in mind, reprobates from the faith.

About the Magisterium:

{16:18} And I say to you, that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

"My Church", not My "Churches".

{22:31} And the Lord said: “Simon, Simon! Behold, Satan has asked for you, so that he may sift you like wheat.
{22:32} But I have prayed for you, so that your faith may not fail, and so that you, once converted, may confirm your brothers.”

Jesus gives Peter a special grace, the authority con confirm and/or correct us from any error that might lead us away from salvation.

Peter is the first of the Apostles:

{10:2} Now the names of the twelve Apostles are these: the First, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother

Notice that when the Apostles fell asleep on the Garden of Gethsemani, Jesus called Peter as he is the responsible of the rest:

{26:40} And he approached his disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter: “So, were you not able to keep vigil with me for one hour?

We can not interpret Sacred Scriptures as we solely wish or think, there is an Authority who has the correct interpretation and that can correct us.

[2 Peter] (First Pope)
{3:16} just as he also spoke in all of his epistles about these things (St. Paul). In these, there are certain things which are difficult to understand, which the unlearned and the unsteady distort, as they also do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.

{21:17} He said to him a third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was very grieved that he had asked him a third time, “Do you love me?” And so he said to him: “Lord, you know all things. You know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my sheep".

*Some may argue that these names may have been taken from an apocrypha or non-inspired book. But even so, the fact that St. Paul has infallibly mentioned these names in this letter to Timothy, it is because it takes its source from Sacred Tradition for Scripture comes from Sacred Tradition, not the other way around.
