Christian Wikis The history of wiki websites specifically related to Christianity is much more recent than that of wikis in general. A wiki website is a site that allows users to add content, as on an internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content.

Wikipedia®, with over a million articles, is the most well-known wiki website and is a testimony to the effectiveness of wikis in allowing exhange of information through collaborative effort. However, it also leads to politically correct manipulation of articles on or dealing with Christianity that could oftentimes lead to censoring of pertinent information on the subject.

The history of wiki websites specifically related to Christianity is much more recent than that of wikis in general. A wiki website is a site that allows users to add content, as on an internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content.

Wikipedia®, with over a million articles, is the most well-known wiki website and is a testimony to the effectiveness of wikis in allowing exchange of information through collaborative effort. However, it also leads to politically correct manipulation of articles on or dealing with Christianity that could oftentimes lead to the censoring of pertinent information on the subject. In recent years, in response to some of this criticism, small numbers of Christian wiki websites have been set up. The first religious wiki was Why Clubbet although this has been called a failure by some. Currently, the largest Christian wiki is WikiChristian which aims to be a major reference site for all topics relating to Christianity. Due to massive vandalism in May 2009[1] the pages were locked and the wiki is currently inactive regarding editing. OrthodoxWiki, for the Eastern Orthodox church and Theopedia, for evangelical Bible-based Christians are two denomination-specific Christian wikis. CARMPedia at www.carmpedia.com was a relative new-comer, but no longer exists. Jesuspedia is a small but growing Christian wiki encyclopedia, built upon the Bible, that affirms its unity with all of God's children- the site now appears to be defunct.
