S.T.O.P.

In recent years, there has been an epidemic of people who, to attempt to justify either their beliefs or, most commonly, the lack thereof, have resorted to quoting Bible verses willy-nilly without stopping to think about the:

* Situation/setting ― when and where a Bible verse or group of verses either takes place or originally took place
* Type of literature ― whether a verse or group of verses is a commandment, narrative, poetry, song, or whatever else
* Object/subject ― who or what a Bible verse is talking about
* Prescription ― whether or not a verse is a prescriptive law or commandment (and whether or not it still applies as such to those of the Messianic Covenant, who aren't bound by the Mosaic Covenant) or merely describing an event or a culture of its time

In response, I have developed this app as a means to make it much easier for the opponents of people who do this to put misquoted verses back in context. Simply fill in the "Situation", "Type", "Object", and "Prescriptive?" fields, then tap the button on the bottom-right of the screen. The app concatenates those fields together with other strings that create a paragraph, then instantly copies the resulting paragraph to the clipboard ― if you're arguing with someone who misquotes a Bible verse, you can then just hit "Paste" into a Facebook, YouTube, etc. comment field (works on pretty much everything except Twitter because the resulting canned paragraph is far longer than 140 characters) or email app (useful for sending an email to your college professor should he or she misquote a verse). In addition, you can also save a response to a misquoted verse for later by pressing the button that looks like a floppy disk on the top right of the screen, and view your saved responses by clicking on the three-dot button. In that list, if you tap an item it copies that saved response instantly to the clipboard ― this comes in handy for those who don't want to keep repeating the same form entry over and over again ― or press-and-hold to delete it.

The main target audience for this app is Christian parents sending their high school graduates off to college. Because of professors who use tactics like quote mining to demonize Christianity, that period is the one during which the vast majority of Christians leave the faith; therefore, if you're a parent, I *highly* recommend this. It will not only give college professors who quote-mine the Bible a run for their money, but it will also, by asking questions as field hints, empower users of the app to think about what they're quoting. We absolutely cannot let people scoff at us by quoting without thinking.
