comment How do new converts to Christianity learn about the Bible, Christian faith, and Christian practices?
@Andrew by definition: "There are either too many possible answers..."

comment Wise use of time. “Love verses facts”
To clarify a common misconception, this isn't a discussion forum. It's a Q and A site with a very specific format. If you haven't had a chance yet, you should read How we are different than other sites? and then the help page for guidance on the purpose of this site and what is and isn't on-topic. See also Tips for editing a question to make it suitable for re-opening.

comment How does scripture reconcile the idea that God hates his enemies while he tells us to love ours?
Please see those links. This is your second completely off-topic question. If you want to participate, you need to do so within the guidelines of the site. That means understanding what is and isn't on-topic here.

comment How does scripture reconcile the idea that God hates his enemies while he tells us to love ours?
Interesting question, but not a good fit for this site. If you haven't had a chance yet, you should read How we are different than other sites? and then the help page. Short version of the issue with this question is that there are a lot of opinions about this within Christianity. There's little chance of a consensus on a "right" answer.

comment How do we understand the balance of grace and justice in the Mosaic covenant?
Interesting question, but not a good fit for this site. If you haven't had a chance yet, you should read How we are different than other sites? and then the help page. The short version of the issue with this question and several others of yours that have been closed is that there are a lot of opinions about this within Christianity. There's little chance of a consensus on a "right" answer.

comment What should be a Christian's attitude when his prayers are not answered?
Please do not answer old off-topic questions. it bumps them to the top of the home page and it's the first thing new visitors see. Then we have to do double-time educating them about site standards, and they get frustrated: "Well then why was that question allowed to be open?" See Can I get feedback on a suggestion for cleaning up old off-topic posts?

comment Can we really claim to have the power of God's heritage?
Hi, it's apparent that you want to participate, but may not quite get what the site is about. I have a few links to help you along.: Newcomers: Be patient. You will get there if you follow our direction. Keep trying, help center, and How we are different than other sites?. No offense, but I'm going to delete this simply because it doesn't match the scope of the question, but don't let that discourage you. Most of us didn't "get" this site at first, me included.

comment If Roman ordered crucifixion of Jesus why most of Christians are Roman Catholic?
Welcome to the site! It's very difficult to see what you're asking here, and I'm wondering if you maybe need just a little guidance on how to use this site? It's a bit different than discussion forums you may be familiar with. As a new visitor, I'd recommend checking out the following two posts, which are meant to help newcomers "learn the ropes": help page and How we are different than other sites?

comment Why would a loving God prefer one nation over another?
Are you kidding me with that circumcision question? From this answer, that's what you latch onto? Are you here to be serious or are you here to yank people's chains?

comment Is there any account of a religious marriage ceremony in the scripture?
What does the first line have to do with the rest of the answer? Please clarify.

comment What does Greek Christos mean
Welcome to the site, but in regards to "I need proof", I need to point out that "who is right and who is wrong" is off-topic here. See: the help page, How we are different than other sites?. Put simply, we're not here to convince you.

comment When Christ was pierced with the spear, why did water come out?
@DickHarfield - I edited to clarify, and the article that I linked to from webmd certainly backs up the gotquestions.org article. See the section titled "what is heart failure"

comment What is “Manuscript Evidence” and how is it useful?
This is good material, but it doesn't answer the question. This would be an excellent answer to a different question - perhaps one asking "what are the different approaches to using manuscript evidence", but it doesn't answer the actual question. See this post if you're unclear about the guideline for answering the actual question asked.

comment If God is omnipotent, why did God plant the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden?
This answer would be acceptable if you could add references showing that this is a common understanding, and who teaches/believes it. On this site, we're not looking for personal interpretation, but rather focusing on what various Christian groups teach. See How we are different than other sites? and What makes a good supported answer?

comment How does Jesus death affect people in other parts of the world outside Roman rule during the time of his death?
Maybe it would be a good idea to google "Why did Jesus have to die" to get an understanding of what the atonement is, and the doctrines surrounding His death as the payment for our sins. As stated, this question makes no sense. I doubt you'll find anywhere that His atoning sacrifice was local only to people under roman rule.

comment Is there any evidence that some Christian leaders discourage lay Christians from reading the whole OT or NT?
I'm removing your first paragraph because it's irrelevant to the question, but to answer the question you asked there, the original was closed because as phased, it was far too open - more like a "let's have a discussion" question, which is not what StackExchange sites are about. I recommend you see the tour and the help center. This one is better. "Is there any evidence" is definitively answerable. "What are possible reasons" is discussion forum fodder.
