Quite some time ago, I asked a question about inter-faith marriage.
I recently received an edit notification, checked it, and saw that my question had been closed as primarily opinion-based.
Caleb provided the following clarification:
Yes questions about the Bible are considered opinion based
A case might be made that this is not such a question, but your negative wording probably didn't help. Try editing to make this less about what the Bible says and more about a specific doctrinal position held by .... whatever the position is and whoever holds it.
He also referred me to his answer here which does fill in a lot of the blanks about the differences in policy between then and now.
However, I'm still confused about how this question can be saved.
He said that my "negative wording probably didn't help", but I'm not sure what that refers to. I see that the edit which brought my attention back here changed my question from "does the Bible address whether a Christian may marry a non-Christian?" to "what passages in the New Testament prohibit a Christian from marrying a non-Christian?", which certainly is more negative than my original question.
Is this the negative wording referred to?
I'm not a Christian, but my wife is, so I'm interested more in generalities, but if I must pick a specific doctrinal position in order to make it on topic, does saying my wife is Lutheran, and I'm interested in what Lutheran doctrine is on inter-faith marriage, improve the question?
Is "Lutheran" specific enough? Honestly, it feels too specific to me, as I'm more interested in what biblical quotes cover the topic, but if the consensus is that "Christianity" is too broad a mantle, due to the very different nuances and interpretations that individual Christians can hold to, and therefore "what does the Old/New Testament say?" is too vague, I can understand that.
But if "What do Lutherans say about inter-faith marriage?" is more appropriate, that seems less useful to Catholics, Protestants, etc.. Would it be appropriate for people in similar situations to myself to ask close variants of my question based upon the particular faiths of their partners?
Am I on the right track at all, or is my question fundamentally no longer a good fit for the site?
