Input requested on use of "orthodox"

At Pentecostalism, there is currently a discussion on whether it is appropriate to describe mainstream Christians/theology as "orthodox". Input would be appreciated. Ltwin (talk)

List of Christian heresies

Please see my post at Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard#List of Christian heresies. I think some people who watch this page might be interested. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:28, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

For future reference, that's Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard/Archive 71#List of Christian heresies. Daask (talk) 21:12, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject-related essays and guidelines

I happened across User:Ian.thomson/ChristianityAndNPOV and would like to add a link to it somewhere on Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity. I wanted to check with others on three questions:

  1. Do others support linking this from a WikiProject page?
  2. Where should the link go?
  3. Are there other essays similar in sentiment or relevance to this WikiProject that I should be aware of or might be linked to as well?

Thanks. Daask (talk) 17:51, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

I think it's a noble effort by Ian, but IMO it needs a lot of editing by project members to make it representative of the project.
If this essay gets promoted to wikiproject advice, then IMO it should become part of a "Christianity Manual of Style" or a "Christianity Editing Guideline" similar to MILHIST and WP Med.– Lionel(talk) 04:30, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

I'm writing here to bring attention to the Black Hebrew Israelites article, as there have been some recent disputes over content and sourcing, and additional input would be great. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:45, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Request for David Trone article re: Lutheranism


I posted at request at WikiProject Lutheranism before seeing this centralized discussion space. I'm seeking help from a volunteer to review my request to add mention of David Trone's religion here, if a page watcher is wiling to take a look. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 20:47, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

I am still seeking assistance with this request to add mention of David Trone's religion to his Wikipedia article. @Kendall-K1, Martin of Sheffield, and Walter Görlitz: You've all contributed to this page recently. Might you be willing to take a look at the update I've proposed here? Inkian Jason (talk) 20:05, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
Never heard of the fellow before, nor his business. Can't see how his religion of otherwise is relevant to the article, but then I'm a Brit and I don't follow the ins and outs of low-level US Politics! Which is a long way of saying I don't think I can help. Regards, Martin of Sheffield (talk) 21:29, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

This edit request has been answered. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 15:47, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Methodist Church

I was looking for the Methodist Church that was formed in the US in 1939, typed in "Methodist Church", and got redirected to Methodism (disambiguation), which was no help. I think there should be a list of all Methodist Church denominations somewhere, and maybe there is, but it should either be at Methodism (disambiguation) or there should be a new dab page for it. Either way, typing in "Methodist Church" should quickly bring me to this list.

Actually it turns out there is such a list, at List of Methodist denominations. Two problems with this, one it's not easily findable from Methodism (disambiguation), and two it does not include the church I was looking for, which is at Methodist Church (USA). Apparently it only has current churches, not previous ones that are no longer in existence. Kendall-K1 (talk) 23:44, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Oh my. A lot of links. We should usually break back-links by creating them with a colon ([[:List of Methodist denominations]]), but it was easy enough to add the list to the dab page. Walter Görlitz (talk) 23:55, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
Which helps but still doesn't solve my problem. Kendall-K1 (talk) 00:09, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
Sorry. I was only reading with half an eye. Does there seem to be an article maintainer or primary editor? If so, ping that editor on the article's talk page to suggest creating a section of historical denominations. If not, be WP:BOLD, and create such a section and add the denominations you think should be there. Walter Görlitz (talk) 00:25, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
 Done Added to list. Martin of Sheffield (talk) 12:36, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

People of Praise

Greetings! This article appears to require attention from non-involved editors interested in Christianity. I have addressed some of my concerns on its talk page. Any help welcome, —PaleoNeonate – 11:07, 1 July 2018 (UTC)


For a number of years we have been experiencing a steady decline in the number of administrators as a result of attrition and a declining number of editors willing to consider adminship. Things have reached a point where we are starting to experience chronic backlogs in important areas of the project including noticeboards, requests for closure, SPI, CSD & etc. If you are an experienced editor with around two years (or more) of tenure, 10k edits give or take and no record of seriously disruptive behavior, please consider if you might be willing to help out the community by becoming an administrator. The community can only function as well as we all are willing to participate. If you are interested start by reading WP:MOP and WP:RFAADVICE. Then go to WP:ORCP and open a discussion. Over the next few days experienced editors will take a look at your record and let you know what they think your chances are of passing RfA (the three most terrifying letters on Wikipedia) as well as provide you with feedback on areas that might be of concern and how to prepare yourself. Lastly you can find a list of experienced editors who may be willing to nominate you here. Thank you and happy editing... [Note:This page may not be on my watchlist so if you want to reply to me, please either ping me or drop me a line on my talk page.] -Ad Orientem (talk) 01:51, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

125(+/-5)? 2 Peter written, widely accepted into canon by the early 4th century

From where was this information researched?

125(+/-5)? 2 Peter written, widely accepted into canon by the early 4th century

Is it based on the lack of 2Peter fragments of the Alexandrian type around 125? Seems like a pretty big assumption if so. Please provide a citation for it.

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:44, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Your question arrives without context. You seem to have gleaned this from the timeline of Christianity article. You'll find more complete answers in the article on the epistle itself: Second Epistle of Peter. Walter Görlitz (talk) 00:50, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
