comment What's the level of the teaching that we can't be sure someone is in Hell?
You gave some reasons indicating that this doctrine is likely to be infallible (another one: proclaiming that someone is in Heaven requires a long process including at least two miracles, there's nothing like this for Hell). However, these are indirect proofs, while I'm looking for a direct one. See how I edited my question and if you can find anything better, add it and I will probably accept this answer.

comment How can I be sure someone I know is going to Heaven?
Denomination-specific. Catholic answer is that we can be sure for canonized saints.

comment What is the origin of the Catholic apocrypha?
I considered asking "how did Luther decide to remove deuterocanonical books from the canon" and you answered it even before it was asked. Thanks!

comment Have witches ever been executed by the Eastern Orthodox Church?
Welcome here! My question was specifically about witches, not heretics (and iconoclasts saw icon-painters as heretics), and not about "witch hunting" meant figuratively. Also, in Western Christianity executing witches was officially condemned until 1484, which is Renaissance, no dark age (though many "witches" were probably killed in Dark Age out of superstition, despite Church law). But the peak of Western witch hunting was during Reformation, the main schism of the West. It would take further research to find if Iconoclasts ever accused their opponents of magic as well.

comment How does the Orthodox Church view the Roman Catholic Church?
No. 3 - the question wasn't on guidance, but on Sacrament of Penance - does God forgive sins to the Orthodox if they confess to a Catholic ("heterodox") priest? Otherwise a good answer.

comment At what time of day was Jesus crucified?
Welcome here! If you intend to use this site, please read our introductory tour. About your answer... it sounds crazy, given the context (see Freemason's argumentation). This site is mainly about what various groups identifying themselves as Christians believe, so some crazy-looking ideas may be accepted here, but you need extra effort on linking sources proving that some authority (they must be wikipedia page or like about them) really teaches that, and that it is applicable to the question.
