Thought provoking one-liners

Some people what to serve God
but only as advisors.People are funny;
they want the front of the bus,
the middle of the road,
and the back of the church.

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation
bangs on your front door forever.

Some minds are like concrete
thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

God doesn’t call the qualified,
He qualifies the called.

Now these quotes are thought provoking and catchy. And there may be nothing unbiblical about them—they may actually clearly teach biblical principles.

My question is this?
Have we reduced Christianity to bumper stickers and one-liners?
If so, is it helpful or detrimental?
If helpful, is it helpful only to Christians? or also to unbelievers?
If detrimental—is the simplicity mistaken for being simple minded?
Does the fact that we reduce principles to one-liners diminish their truthfulness?
Does the fact that we reduce principles to one-liners make “our truth” like the “truth” of other religions?

Thoughts?

I love to study the Bible and I love to engage with others in learning. I had been privileged to do this on a regular basis through church ministry and through part-time teaching at a local Bible colleges. Helping individuals learn to feed themselves through their own study of God’s Word is joy-giving to me. Influencing groups to do life and church from a biblically grounded, theologically faithful perspective is my passion.
