???Now I'm confused. Did you just mis-type in one of these posts?
To respond to both you and one of Jimmy's question/assertions, the Church as a whole cannot
err, because She is the Body of Christ, and not because God protects Her. (As the Body of Christ, having such "protection" is redundant.) However, when it comes to councils, I think that there is a remote possibility that individuals
could have made mistakes in making pronouncements that were overlooked, and later on the Church may have to come back to them and correct them. This has happened a few times with large councils that were not Ecumenical, but large. But I make the point about this not really because of the possiblity that people erred in promulgating councils, which some may find disingenuous on my part, but rather to point out that there is a deeper inerrancy inherent in the Church than councils, an inerrancy that resides in Her as the Body of Christ. Recently this argument has been expanded because theologians are looking for ways to unite the Oriental Orthodox and the Eastern Orthodox in such a way that the Oriental Orthodox would not have to "swallow" all the defintions of the councils from Chalcedon onwards, and the two Churches could still reunite.
