The Bible: Fallible Collection of Infallible Books?

The Catholic view is “An infallible collection of infallible books” If one has a fallible collection of infallible books; how do you know your collection is correct? Fallible means it can err, be wrong, mistake …In the Council of Carthage 397 AD the church lead by the Holy spirit made a decision on the 27 books and the only reason for the decreeing these 27 books was because of the heresies;( even Dr James White admits it was most likely the reason for the Church deciding the 27 books was to combat the heretics at that time.) Wouldn’t you say the Holy Spirit is infallible? So therefore the Decision made by the Council was 100% correct and hence infallible as it was lead by the infallible Holy spirit.

The Council of Jerusalem or Apostolic Council was held in Jerusalem around AD 50. Peter stood up . After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe.” The end result was a decision was made; a decree written; it was binding upon all; you didnt have to become a Jew first to be christian. Was the Church’s decison correct or not? The church was lead by the Holy spirit so you would believe the decision was without error, on the basis that the Holy Spirit leading the Church is infallible.

Interested in some feedback. There is a lot more to say on this as well.
