  • Expand the article to include some content on the relationship between Liberal Christianity and modern Fundamentalism. It has been said that modern Fundamentalism was a reaction to the logical positivism and rationalism that was being introduced into Christian thought by liberal Christians. I don't know whether I have described this well, or in fact accurately, but I am hopeful that someone will know what I am talking about and perhaps feel inclined to craft a small subsection of the history section or a separate section of the article that deals with this subject.

Decline of liberal Christianity[edit]

Given that liberal Christianity denominations are now bleeding members, should the article mentions this matter?

2017 Washington Post article: Liberal churches are dying. But conservative churches are thriving.

Is liberal Christianity dying in Europe too? Knox490 (talk) 12:22, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Liberal Christianity and liberal theology[edit]

The first seven words of this article read "Liberal Christianity, also known as liberal theology". Is this accurate? Do not other religions have their liberal theologies? Vorbee (talk) 21:34, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Vorbee, I suppose it's because this is an an article titled "Liberal Christianity" and so within Christianity it might also be referred to as "Liberal theology" (this is because it's "liberalism applied to theology" rather than meaning being a liberal and a Christian.

Article revision[edit]

After reading the article and perusing the discussion in the talk page archives, I decided to re-write the section on "exegesis" and ended up renaming it "Liberal Protestantism" because that is all it deals with. I'm proposing we give the article a revised outline with sections for "Liberal Catholicism" and "Liberal Orthodoxy" (if there is indeed such a thing) as well. I have contributions I can make for Liberal Protestantism, but the other branches of Christianity will need to be taken up by other editors. Ltwin (talk) 02:58, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
