I was wondering if you could please help me with a question.

Orthodox obviously do not believe in the infallibility of the Bishop (Pope) of Rome. However, is it true that Orthodox believe that infallibility resides in the first seven ecumenical councils? That is, that these councils made infallible pronoucements on matters of faith and doctrine?


Orthodoxy does not believe in the infallibility of the Pope of Rome, nor of any other individual.

Orthodoxy upholds the reality that the Church, gathered together in Council under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, is guided in making correct decisions and in enunciating truth.
