A group of learned men decided which books would be in the Old Testement and New Testement. Many books were written that did not make the cut, referred to as extra Biblical writings. James came really close to being left out. The men involved or the books chosen do not matter for this thread. The question is, and it is hard to put into words, how close was the guidance of the Holy Spirit was upon these men? Did they make any mistakes? (Leave inspired books out or include uninspired books) Can we trust that the books that are included are the exact ones we should have to the degree that we believe the original writings were infallable and Inspired, and the present versions are inerrent? Lousy wording but hope everyone gets the idea.
