I'll read the whole essay when I come home, but there are such things as principles derived from the whole texts. chapters, passages and words that can be spoken in plain English words and phrases, that is in the vernacular. If, for example, you read both letters of Paul to the Corinthians regarding what to do about the man who was sleeping with his dad's wife, you may paraphrase a deduced conclusion without quoting Paul's letter exactly. In like manner, as an answer to many who say Christians are too judgmental. the self-corrective slogan is

"love the Sinner; hate the sin." Combine it with the directives Judge not lest ye be judged." and "Love your neighbor as yourself. " it seems to be a pretty good way of saying it!
