comment What is the name of a film about three brothers saying the Jesus prayer?
While this is likely on-topic here, it's clearly on-topic on Movies.SE, and may get a better answer there.

comment Does Jesus coming on the clouds mean through the Internet?
At the time those words were written, "coming on the clouds" was simply an image used to describe royalty. It was specifically, therefore, a claim that Jesus was/would be King. Whether there was a hidden, "deeper" meaning for future generations to understand is, of course, a matter of pure speculation and opinion, and thus unanswerable here, except within the scope of a specific denominational framework.

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
Which is why we limit ourselves to "What does group X say verse Y means?" questions. BH allows more "What does verse Y mean?" types of questions, but within their own guidelines.

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
If you wanted to rephrase this question to "Do any of the authors of Acts or the Epistles explain why they don't mention the names of false apostles?" I would consider that sufficiently scoped. But the answer you accepted doesn't even answer that question--it offers opinions.

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
Because the authors aren't around to interview, so any answer anyone here can provide is conjecture and opinion. If your question is "Does the author of X explain their reasons for writing X?" then it would be on-topic. And sometimes, as in your example, there may be an overlap between the two. But the overlap is razor-thin.

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
Asking why something is omitted from the Bible is akin to asking the motives of God and/or the author of the specific book, and therefore off-topic.

comment What is the farthest back an LDS Member has traced his family tree?
@TheFreemason: It makes perfect sense if you replace "all the way back to Adam" with "All the way back to Biblical genealogies which include Adam", which is obviously what it clearly means.

@TheFreemason: You don't have to believe in Lilith to believe Adam and Eve were not literal people :)

I would suggest breaking it into 4 questions. The experts who answer may not be experts in all 4 areas.
