A fallible list of infallible dogmas

Last month, Armstrong tried to answer the question, “Where can one find a list of infallible Catholic doctrines?”

However, that way of posing the question misses the point. The real question is, ”Where can one find an infallible list of infallible Catholics doctrines?”

What would be the point of having a fallible list of infallible dogmas? A fallible list might well be a list of fallible dogmas. So referring the reader to Ott or Denziger is no solution to the problem.

    But don't Protestants regard the canon as a fallible list of infallible books? How can we rely on such a canon?

  5. Relevant to this discussion are Steve Hays' critique of Philip Blosser's critique of sola scriptura, "By Scripture Alone," and Blosser's rebuttal, "Sola Scriptura revisited: a reply to Steve Hays (in 95 antitheses)."
