This site has many good questions that aren't scope to a particular denomination or tradition. Here are some I found tagged with biblical-basis:
- What is the Biblical basis for withholding communion from believers who are unbaptized?
- Biblical basis for the separation of church and state
- Can Elders of a church be young?
- What is the Bible and Christian view on Astrology?
- What exactly do we know about Heaven?
I'm not saying that these questions are perfect and some might be able to be improved, but I think in general that they're pretty decent. Some even ask what the Truth is, but I don't think it's unconstructive.
The on topic page says that questions which ask "what the Bible says about a subject (unless you specify a doctrine/tradition)" aren't constructive, but I disagree. Some are and some aren't. Furthermore it would be a disadvantage to need to restrict these to particular tradition - it would be a shame I think if there were five different versions of the separation of church and state question. There are two advantages of not requiring these questions to specify a tradition: firstly most of the time there is no real difference in answers, which means the same answers will get given in each of those questions. Secondly, when there is a difference, I think it can be good to see them next to each other. For example, in the past the Catholic church hasn't had much separation between church and state, so it would be interesting to see a Catholic answer next to other answers. I think for many issues there will be a generic answer that covers 90% of the denominations, and then one or two exceptions.
Questions can and often should be scoped to a particular denomination or tradition, but I don't think they have to be.
I'd suggest that the on topic page be rewritten. (Some work on that has begun but it should extend to the off topic section too.)
I'd also like to suggest that a slightly different approach be taken with these questions:
- Firstly generic Christian questions and answers should be allowed
- Occasionally we may even like to suggest that a question remove a limitation to a denomination if the answers are likely to apply to every denomination
- We perhaps should expect 'generic' Christian answers to be the default for the site. As a question gathers answers it will become quickly apparent whether or not there are denominational differences. The answers can then specify their background if that will help.
- And sometimes we should suggest that the question asker add a denomination at the beginning (as we do now.) For example, if you ask about the Biblical basis for infant baptism it's appropriate to specify whether you're looking for a Catholic or Reformed/Covenantal answer because the answers are going to be very different.
