Councils
#1
Since councils have such importance on catholic dogma and thinking. I was hoping some posters would give examples from both the bible and the early church on the importance of councils. 


Thanks.

The first council was in Jerusalem and is recorded in Holy Writ in the book of Acts, 15:2-35 to be precise. It serves to provide an example of the humility of our Church leadership in conferring with each other to reconcile secondary problems for the sake of unity in the Church.

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
