comment How does a baptismal certificate work?
Re-baptisms are generally conditional. In the case mentioned, I think there was so much doubt about the form of the original "baptism" that the "second" was not conditional.

comment Will Angels teach us to sing?
@Cecil But you will be changed, in the twinkling of eye. The hereafter is nothing like the here. So you may well have the voice of an angel!

comment Will Angels teach us to sing?
But it would seem straightforward to make it on-topic by explicitly stating the implied question.

Hopefully, it's now on-topic.

comment What rules does the Catholic Church have for venerating crosses/crucifixes on Good Friday?
There is an admirable answer to this question at TotusTuus which it would seem inelegant simply to reproduce here, even with attribution.

comment What do Chinese Catholics call their priests?
@Flimzy From that page, it looks like it's 神父 (Shénfù) which translates as "Father" or "Fr", so it's obviously a priestly title.

How priests are called is different to what they are called.

That's why I linked to the most recent Meta question on the subject of topicality.

comment What evidence is there to show that John Wesley and John Calvin did not believe that Jesus is Michael?
I'd like to see some evidence of the premise, I think. It seems highly unlikely to me that Wesley and Calvin believed what they're stated to believe here.

comment Is enjoying an apocryphal book a sin?
It's not a matter of sin being off-topic. It's a matter of the way the question is phrased which makes it off-topic. Do read the meta question and the answers there: this site deals in Doctrine, not Truth.

comment Is enjoying an apocryphal book a sin?
"Is X a sin" is off-topic, I'm afraid. The question can be rephrased as "What makes X a sin?" perhaps adding "according to Y tradition". Stacylaray's answer would probably still be relevant to that question, too.

comment Why is the Roman Catholic infant baptism called “christening”?
It's worth pointing out that in every denomination, baptism — originally derived from Greek — is the correct and canonical word to use, and christening is only used (a) to help people understand what "baptism" means; (b) to help online search engines.
