Using a free hosting network, Bible Wiki is required to allow elements that promote Fandom, Inc. Originally, while Fandom (formerly "Wikia") was a free hosting network, it has since undergone significant re-branding and orientation towards an entertainment website network. Now Bible Wiki is hosted under the branding of "wikia.org". We do not endorse or support any other website or hosted on "wikia.org".
Fandom, Inc dba as Wikia.org is a secular company. Therefore they are unable to support our viewpoints and endorse our official mission and goals. At times they may promote content through their own means (or subsequently the topics they cover) that support values contradictory to to Biblical viewpoints. We cannot endorse content produced by Fandom/Wikia.org supporting homosexuality, abortion, extramarital sex, pluralism or anything that contradicts the Bible. While we cannot support any such "worldly values", we a ministry on founded on God's Word we seek to stand in love and compassion on those who do not know Christ.

Modern English Bias
Bible Wiki recognizes that the preciseness of biblical content or interpretation as represented on the wiki may be affected by an editor's translation. Overall, since the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek content of Scripture is not readily usable by the majority; most users will have to use an English translation of the Bible. The ultimate meaning of the Bible is not affected by its translation status, but the preciseness of facts or meaning can be affected.
The largest disadvantage to English (non-original language Bibles) is that cultural customs and literary elements may not be understood by the English reader. Content contributed by users not using original language Bibles may reflect this. Generally speaking a lack of understanding of ancient culture can also affect the preciseness or correct meaning of Biblical content.
Additionally, different translations have varying degrees of preciseness of historical facts and figurative speech. Bible Wiki cannot warrant that the views of translations or any English Bible allow the complete reflection of all facts and figures of speech. Only the original languages can truly present complete accuracy (if/when possible).
For sake of precise detail and preservation of ancient culture, a literal English translation is recommended. Literal translations are more difficult to understand and so using a paraphrased translation to help give a passage's meaning is also useful.
