comment According to the Roman Catholic church, who can baptize a new believer?
I deleted all but the relevant portions of this. Please stick to answering the question, and only answering the question. To clarify a common misconception, this isn't a discussion forum. It's a Q and A site with a very specific format. Answers are not to be used to put opinions or make comments/observations, but rather well-sourced answers as to what is taught by some group within Christianity.

Can you be more specific? Is this what you're looking for?

comment What common apologetic arguments support the view that it is more likely that Jesus was resurrected than his body was stolen?
Well, now I've edited the title in an attempt to make it clearly on topic to help prevent it from being closed.

StackExchange sites have a guideline about intentionally being offensive. Your entire post was phrased in such a way that it's clearly disdainful. Per the help, belittling is not OK. I removed the irrelevant content and left you with the core question. Note that I didn't add or alter anything, I simply removed content, to try to ensure that your actual question remained.

comment Where does the age of the earth come in Christianity?
Note that not all Christians hold this view. This view is referred to as the "Young Earth Creationist" view. See Do most Christian scientists have a Literal Creationist viewpoint?

@TheFreemason please, no snarky comments.

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.

Welcome to the site. As you're a new visitor, I'd like to recommend the following posts, which are meant to help newcomers "learn the ropes": help page, How we are different than other sites? and What makes a good supported answer?

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?

comment Crusades: What's the historic consensus?
@ThaddeusB - I checked and the History site doesn't want it. It would be closed as "primarily opinion-based" there.

John Doe, if you want accounts merged, you need to use the [contact form] (christianity.stackexchange.com/contact) to have the StackExchange team merge them.

comment What is the logic of salvation? AND or OR?
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 site, but don't let that discourage you. Most of us didn't "get" this site at first, me included.
