Is Brevity Always Good?

Ron Edmondson quotes a bunch of single Bible verses and concludes:
Perhaps you should choose one or two of these, write them down somewhere you’ll see it often, and commit it to memory.
I could not help, on reading the post, but to reflect on the question that is the title of this post. Being a leader is a complex thing. We keep trying to make Christianity, on all its levels, simpler, but there is nothing simple about it. It is intellectually complex and extraordinarily difficult to live out.

But mostly I am concerned becasue the point of Christianity is to make us better which means we should be striving to those higher levels of complexity, not reaching for simplicity. Further we should be calling others to higher complexity and not allow them to be content in simplicity. Peter may have started as a fisherman, but he ended as so much more.
