the religion based on the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, or its beliefs and practices.

Use this tag for notable claims in which Christian practice, belief, or affiliation is a major factor. This includes:

  • Claims involving the beliefs or practices of specific Christian groups (e.g. "Does the Church of X really hold to Teaching Y?") that can be verified through consulting official statements, interviewing church officials, or attending services.
  • Claims involving whether notable Christian leaders did or did not make certain notable statements.
  • Claims involving historically verifiable parts of Christian history, such as the existence of certain religious figures or leaders (e.g. whether there is historical evidence for the existence of St. Patrick).

Do not use this tag for inquiries into the truth or falsity of Christian belief (such as the divinity of Jesus, the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the exact mechanics of a future Rapture, etc.), as religious belief is, by definition, not falsifiable.
