comment Is there a customary way to go around rosary beads?
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?

@pehkay - and ray: Discussions on the plausibility/validity of a belief are fine for chat, but not in comments. See the help section on commenting. Specifically when not to comment, which includes: Secondary discussion or debating a controversial point; please use chat instead

comment What denominations consider Apocrypha to be heretical?
Can you clarify what you mean by "believe the books to be heretical"? There's a difference between believing something is "heretical" and "not inspired". Many groups believe that the books themselves are not inspired*, and because the books aren't inspired, the doctrines that are drawn from the books are heretical. I'm not sure I know of any group that considers any of the books themselves to be heretical, just the doctrines that are rooted in the books.

comment What scriptural arguments are there, if any, that there is hell but it is not eternal?
Unless you mean that some people believe that "all men" includes those in hell (therefore, hell won't be eternal because he'll draw them out) then I have to agree that this doesn't answer the question. If that's what you mean, please clarify, and add references to those that teach this, and flag for us to un-delete, please.

comment Where did Noah's sons' wives come from?
Why is this being voted to be closed as "unclear what you're asking". This looks pretty clear to me.

comment What defence can be made for Christian anthropocentrism?
I'm not sure why this is being voted to be closed, either. Asking for common/existing Apologetic arguments is on-topic. It's only when people ask if those arguments are correct/true/valid that they become off-topic.

comment Can someone explain the argument that Jesus believed in Adam and Eve?
@ThaddeusB - I'm pretty sure that this is saying Jesus DID believe in a literal Adam and Eve, because that was Canon, and the Matthew 19:4-6 reference is a reference to Canon and therefore Truth. I just don't think the answer is written very clearly.

comment How did the Holy Spirit come into existence?
@curiousdannii is correct, as worded this does not answer the question, although it DOES come close. This can be fixed by simply adding "The Holy Spirit was present at the beginning because..." Please consider editing this to address the actual question explicitly instead of leaving it for the audience to connect the dots.

comment Does Jesus coming on the clouds mean through the Internet?
Are you asking if it's possible that coming through the clouds means through the Internet, or are you asking if any groups teach this?
