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]http://www.lectionarycentral.com/GregoryMoralia/Book19.html
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.
