Who could possibly object to the expression “God-given potential”? We say it all the time, don’t we? We mention “God-given” talents, abilities, opportunities, etc. Could there be a more innocent and appropriate expression?
Shockingly, however, many leaders (delegates chosen to attend their party’s convention) of one of our major political parties strenuously object to this expression! They angrily objected to the very mention of God in their party’s platform (watch the video for yourself). Their platform also states that every woman has a “right” to free abortions (not free, of course, you and I are helping to pay for the abortions through our taxes—those of us who pay taxes). Their platform also staunchly defends the “right” of depraved men to fornicate with each other and call it “marriage.”
Brethren, it is pass time for us to unite and stand up for what’s right and quit excusing wickedness. Let’s not turn a blind eye to the evil that is staring us in the face!
