Extra Biblical Content

Cleaning the Articles
Since Bibleciv.org endeavors to provide information from a Biblical Christian perspective many articles from Wikipedia need to be modified to remove text that goes against that directive. Many articles in Wikipedia are edited to contain weasel words or atheistic perspectives. There are also many articles with information from an Islamic perspective. Most of this is removed when placed into Bibleciv.org.

On BibleCiv.org and most wiki systems there are red links and blue links. Red links are articles that do not exist on the site. These articles may or may not eventually be created. Blue/Purple links are links to existing articles on the site. You can navigate throughout BibleCiv.org by clicking various blue/purple links.
