Bachmann urges Christians not to 'settle'

By Ashley Killough, CNN

(CNN) – Minessota Rep. Michele Bachmann gave one piece of advice to students at the country's largest Christian university: "Don't settle."

It's a line she's recently pushed to Republican voters, urging the GOP not to "settle" on leading GOP presidential candidates.

But on Wednesday she turned the phrase into one laced with heavy spiritual themes.

"Don't settle for anything less than what this great and almighty God has planned for you," Bachmann said in a speech at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.

The White House hopeful described her experience becoming a Christian as a 16-year-old, when she said she walked into a church one day with some friends and felt called to the altar.

    Anyone who calls themselves Christian, says that God told them to run for president and then says things like "If you don't work, you don't get to eat" is no Christian, guilty of blasphemy and taking the Lords name in vain. You and all of your evangelical friends are no Christians when you have taken the Christ out of Christianity. And you're exactly the same hypocrites that Jesus continually scorded in the new testament.
    Remember first and foremost, you can't serve both God and the Republican Party! You need to pick one...

    Did Michelle Bachman release any idea about how she would stimulate consummer demand and thus increase jobs? No I didnt think so.
