What do you think about this Catholic article?

I would still like to give this article another shot... but that formatting and coloring...

Yeah, I don't know why people can't just use normal formatting and colouring. It's so annoying. Btw, I found a way to change the colouring. Just press Ctrl + P and then you can change it from colour to normal black and white. And you can adjust the size on the bottom right.

There exists a famous quote by pope Gregory the Great in Moralia de Job, book 19, section 34

With reference to which particular we are not acting irregularly, if from the books, though not canonical, yet brought out for the edifying of the Church, we bring forward testimony. "Thus Eleazar in the battle smote and brought down an elephant, but fell under the very beast that he killed." [1 Macc. 6, 46]


This will not help to clarify the muddy waters.

And I could go on, but the point is that there were disagreements. This gets an exclamation point at the Council of Trullo in c. 690--reckoned of Ecumenical authority by Orthodox Christians--which accepts multiple scriptural canons. None of this is meant to make people unsure of their faith. It is exactly faith which we need, not reliance on perfection, which humans can never give us. Certainly we should look to expressions of individual Fathers for edification and enlightnement, but none of them individually are infallible.

I agree with this position totally.

These quotations are certainly very useful! - My sincere thanks to Justin et al!

Now, what about N.T. quotations of Deuterocananical/ Apocryphal Texts?

I get stumped after quoting 2 or possibly 4.  Smiley
