Michelle Bachmann Shares Testimony in Iowa Church

Michele Bachmann shared her Christian testimony at a church in Osceola, Iowa on Sunday morning. Michael Gerson reports that her tone sounded “sincere and nonpolitical.” Here is an excerpt from The Iowa Independent‘s coverage of her remarks:

“Even though I was doing nothing wrong — I wasn’t drinking, smoking or chasing boys — I still had a wicked heart,” Bachmann says of her 1972 teenage self before she and a group of three friends entered an abandoned and unlocked Minnesota church and stood before the alter confessing their sins.

“We got up. I walked home to our little apartment, and I bowed before my bed. I said to God, ‘All I know is that I’m a different person. … I will radically abandon my life to you, Lord,’ Bachmann said to those gathered in Osceola.

She added that 2 Corinthians 3:17 is her scripture, or the “scripture of my life.” That verse reads, “Now the Lord is that Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

    Nice. I have another sister in Christ i shall be with eternally by God’s mercy; and she will have a filthy forgiven brother in me. I’m glad she will not be our president though. Doesn’t seem to be a good fit for her, IMHO.
