Sound Bite Christianity

Yet, for many Christians, their knowledge of the Faith is often limited to a few famous quotes or parables of Jesus that have remained in their memory since childhood. This is particularly true for newcomers to Christianity or individuals who have stopped attending church. This lack of knowledge and understanding creates a genuine risk of oversimplification of Christ’s message by relying on a few quotes taken out of context.
So Con or Bust

I can certainly relate to this quote, especially when you have become active in pro-life issues, even family members spit out Biblical passages in order to peg you as someone who has become a "one issue" person, without regard for the "bigger picture".
