Bumper Sticker Theology

Have you ever been driving down the road and seen a very inspiring bumper sticker? I have seen a few, and it scares me a little. They usually include one of two things; a scripture used out of context, or an inspiring quote that is treated as if it were scripture. This shallowness goes beyond the rear end of a car, it can be seen on t-shirts, bracelets, and even church signs. The worst part about this theology is it encourages bumper sticker faith. It seems inconsistent to desire deep faith relationships with God yet only study shallow bumper sticker theology. We ought to be discussing the complex issues in theology. Of course we should do so in a way that produces unity rather than conflict. If we continue to wrestle with these issues they will constantly be on our minds causing us to draw closer and closer to Him. This is true because difficult questions require diligent study.
