Sola Scriptura Debate - Third cross-ex question

I am sure you would affirm that you and the EOC are under the authority of Scripture (with the understanding, of course, that Scripture is not your only authority, final authority, or only final authority).

Yet your position posits that the Church is responsible for deciding/determining (in my experience, EOdox and RCs, yourself included, use the two terms interchangeably and sloppily) the contents and extent of the Canon of Scripture. In what way, then, is the Church of God subject to the teaching and instruction of Scripture, since the Church is in fact the infallible interpreter of what Scripture says?

If you would deny the original given, I hope you'll correct my misunderstanding and explain what role Scripture actually plays in your position.
