Welcome to Christianity Stack Exchange

Christianity - Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for committed Christians, experts in Christianity and those interested in learning more. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about Christianity.

We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:


Ask questions, get answers, no distractions

This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.

Just questions...

...and answers.

up vote

Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.

The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.

accept

The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".

Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.

How to prevent unicorns from eating daisies

up vote 14 down vote favorite

I love the unicorns who hang out behind my kitchen, but they do tend to eat rather a lot of the daisies. What can I do about this?

The easiest solution is to spray the daisies lightly with corn syrup using a standard vegetable oil sprayer. It won't hurt the flowers, but unicorns hate the sickly-sweet smell and will avoid it at all costs!

Plant more daisies! Contrary to popular belief, unicorns do not actually eat corn, which is only tasty in the late summer months anyway. Without daisies they tend to get grumpy and dehydrated.


Get answers to practical, detailed questions

Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.

Ask about...

  • the history of denominations (such as Roman Catholic, Anglican, Church of Christ or Later Day Saints) and movements (such as Pentecostalism, Creationism, Calvinism)
  • understanding the Bible from the perspective of a specific viewpoint (like those listed above)
  • explanations of the beliefs and practices of a denomination or movement
  • the Biblical basis for a belief or practice

Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.

Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.

Don't ask about...

  • a survey of all Christian views on a particular subject
  • what the Bible says about a subject (unless you specify a doctrine/tradition)
  • advice on how to handle certain situations (pastoral advice questions)
  • is "X" a sin questions that ask whether a certain action or belief is sinful
  • "Truth" questions that do not focus on what a specific group of people teaches
  • whether some group or person is "Christian"

Tags make it easy to find interesting questions

All questions are tagged with their subject areas. Each can have up to 5 tags, since a question might be related to several subjects.

Click any tag to see a list of questions with that tag, or go to the tag list to browse for topics that interest you.
