The 700 Club - October 26, 2011

Guest Wellington Boone shares his insight on the power of utilizing the Holy Spirit when we pray, and the story of Joe Fornear who beat a stage four cancer death sentence. Read Transcript


IT'S PROBABLY NOTHING.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

SAID IT WASN'T CANCER.

THEY WERE WRONG.

AT THAT TIME, IT WAS

PROBABLY GETTING CLOSE TO

GOLF-BALL SIZE.

Reporter: THEN THEY

TOLD HIM HE WAS GOING TO

DIE.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW,

BUT YOU HAVE DAYS TO LIVE.

Reporter: AND THEY WERE

WRONG ABOUT THAT, TOO.

HOW HE STUNNED THE EXPERTS

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

HE TOLD ME WHAT HAPPENED

TO ME DOESN'T HAPPEN.

*

( applause ).

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF THE "THE 700

CLUB."

IT LOOKS LIKE THE CAMPAIGN

FOR PRESIDENT COMING UP NEXT

YEAR WILL BE BASED ON TAXES

AND SPENDING.

THE REPUBLICANS ARE STAKING

A BOLD CLAIM TO FAIR,

FLATTER TAXES, AND I THINK

THEY'RE DOING A GOOD JOB OF

IT.

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE RICK

PERRY HAS ANNOUNCED HIS PLAN

TO KICK THE ECONOMY OFF, AND

HIS CAMPAIGN INTO HIGH

GEAR.

IT'S AN OPTIONAL FLAT TAX.

Terry: AND, PAT, THE

TEXAS GOVERNOR CALLS HIS

IDEA "CUT, BALANCE, AND

GROW."

PERRY IS HOPING TO TRANSFORM

AMERICA'S TAX SYSTEM.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: SPEAKING FROM

A PLASTICS MANUFACTURER IN

SOUTH CAROLINA, A KEY EARLY

PRIMARY STATE, TEXAS

GOVERNOR RICK PERRY

ANNOUNCED A PLAN THAT WOULD

LET TAXPAYERS THROW OUT THE

CURRENT TAX CODE AND REPLACE

IT WITH A 20% TAX.

THIS IS THE SIZE THAT

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

TAXPAYERS WILL BE ABLE TO

FILL THIS OUT AND FILE THEIR

TAXES ON THAT.

Reporter: MORTGAGE

INTERESTS AND CHARITABLE

CONTRIBUTIONS WOULD STILL BE

DEDUCTIBLE IN HOUSEHOLDS

MAKING LESS THAN $500,000.

YOU'RE FIRST $12,500 OF

INCOME WOULD BE EXEMPT.

AND AMERICANS WHO WANT TO

STAY IN THE CURRENT TAX

SYSTEM CAN.

HE CALLS IT "CUT, BALANCE,

AND GROW."

AND SOME FISCAL

CONSERVATIVES SAY THE

FLAT-TAX PORTION OF TERRY'S

PLAN COULD HELP IGNITE THIS

STAGNANT ECONOMY.

IN A GROWING ECONOMY, YOU

HAVE TO HAVE CAPITAL

FORMATION.

GETTING TO A SIMPLE FLAT TAX

I THINK WOULD BE A GREAT

THING.

ROCKET FUEL FOR THIS

ECONOMY.

Reporter: PERRY SAYS HE

WOULD BALANCE THE FEDERAL

BUDGET IN EIGHT YEARS, AND

SUGGESTS THIS PLAN WILL

CREATE NEARLY THREE MILLION

JOBS.

HOW?

A ONE-TIME TAX OF 5.25% ON

OVERSEAS PROFITS THAT

AMERICAN BUSINESSES WANT TO

BRING HOME.

IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS THE

KIND OF ECONOMIC STIMULUS

THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA COULD

HAVE ACHIEVED IF HE WASN'T

SO HELL-BENT ON PASSING BIG

GOVERNMENT SCHEMES

THAT

HAVE

FAILED AMERICAN WORKERS.

Reporter: PERRY

HAS HAD

SUCCESS RAISING MONEY, BUT

HE IS LAGGING IN THE POLLS.

HE IS LOOKING TO REENERGIZE

THIS CAMPAIGN AFTER FACING

CRITICISM FOR NOT HAVING AN

ECONOMIC PLAN.

AND HE

IS ALSO

TAKING ON

ENTITLEMENT SPENDING.

ON SOCIAL SECURITY, HE WANTS

TO RAISE THE RETIREMENT

AGE.

HE WOULD LOCK UP THE SOCIAL

SECURITY TRUST FUND TO KEEP

CONGRESS FROM WRITING

I.O.U.s, AND ALLOW YOUNG

WORKERS TO INVEST A PORTION

OF THEIR BENEFITS.

TOWNHALTOWNHALL.COM

PRESIDENT CALLS TERRY'S PLAN

AN IMPROVEMENT OVER THE

CURRENT TAX CODE.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

HAS BEEN ABUNDANTLY CLEAR

THROUGH THIS ECONOMIC MESS

IS PART OF THE CULPRIT IS

THE TAX CODE THAT IS SO CON

VU -- CONVOLUTED THAT THE

ONLY PEOPLE MAKING MONEY ARE

THE TAX MEN.

Reporter: AND THE

DEBATE WILL NOW DEEPEN AMONG

REPUBLICANS AS PERRY FINALLY

BUMPS PLANS WITH HERMAN

CAIN'S "9-9-9".

THE QUESTION IS IF HE CAN

SELL IT, AND IF HE CAN GET

THE SAME KIND OF BUZZ HERMAN

CAIN HAS ABOUT "9-9-9".

Pat: IT'S A WONDERFUL

PLAN.

MY ONLY CRITICISM RIGHT NOW

WOULD BE THE FACT THAT HE

STILL LEAVES MORTGAGE

INTEREST IN AS A DEDUCTION.

WE OUGHT TO STOP DEDUCTING.

THE CANADIANS DON'T HAVE

DEDUCTIONS FOR MORTGAGES AND

THEY DO VERY WELL.

AND THE REAL ESTATE LOBBY,

OF COURSE, WANTS IT.

IF YOU HAVE A LOW, FLAT TAX,

YOU REALLY DON'T NEED TO

WORRY ABOUT DEDUCTIONS.

IT IS BOLD.

HE IS TAKING A BOLD STEP BY

INCREASING THE AGE OF SOCIAL

SECURITY, WHICH IS LONG

OVERDUE.

THE IDEA OF BRINGING BACK OR

REPATRIATING THE PROFITS OF

MANUFACTURING OVERSEAS WITH

A 5% TAX IS A GOOD THING.

HE IS GOING TO ALLOW,

THOUGH, BUSINESSES WHO DO

BUSINESS OVERSEAS TO NOT BE

TAXED ON THE MONEY THAT THEY

MAKE FROM, LIKE, CHINA OR

INDONESIA OR WHEREVER

THEY'RE DOING BUSINESS.

ONLY WHAT'S -- IT WILL BE

TERRITORIAL.

WHATEVER IS MADE IN THE

UNITED STATES WILL BE TAXED

IN THE UNITED STATES.

WHICH MOST COUNTRIES DO.

IT'S A GREAT PLAN.

AND WHETHER RICK PERRY CAN

NOW SELL IT, I DON'T KNOW.

BUT WE SALUTE IT AND WISH

HIM WELL.

BUT THE WHOLE CONCEPT,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IS

THIS TAX CODE WE'VE GOT IS A

MONSTROSITY.

AND WE UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU

CONSIDER ALL OF THE

CALCULATION FOR THE A.M. T.,

YOU'RE LOOKING AT PROBABLY

$460 BILLION A YEAR OF

COMPLIANCE COSTS, JUST WHAT

IT COSTS TO FILL OUT THOSE

FORMS.

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING

ABOUT THIS.

AND A FLAT TAX IS PROBABLY

THE ANSWER TO -- A TIME THAT

HAS COME.

WHEN I WAS RUNNING, I

ADVOCATED A FLAT TAX WAY,

WAY BACK IN 1988.

I ADVOCATED A NUMBER OF

THINGS.

I WANTED THE DEDUCTIBILITY

OF DIVIDENDS, AND IT HAS

TAKEN THEM A WHILE TO CATCH

UP.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF OUR

TOP STORIES FROM THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

Reporter: PAT,

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS UNVEILING

A NEW ECONOMIC PLAN TO HELP

COLLEGE GRADUATES TO REPAY

THEIR STUDENT LOANS.

HE SAYS IT WILL HELP

STUDENTS CONSOLIDATE LOANS

AND GET LOWER INTEREST RATES

AND LOWER THEIR MONTHLY

PAYMENTS.

HALF OF COLLEGE GRADUATES

FROM PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES HAD

ABOUT $22,000 IN DEBT.

COLLEGE STUDENTS WERE SOME

OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S MOST

FAITHFUL SUPPORTERS IN THE

2008 ELECTION.

EUROPEAN LEADERS ARE RACING

THE CLOCK TO FIND A SOLUTION

FOR THE CONTINENT'S MASSIVE

DEBT CRISIS.

OFFICIALS ARE MEETING IN

BELGIUM TO COME UP WITH A

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN TO KEEP

THE DISASTER FROM

SPREADING.

BEFORE THAT MEETING, ITALIAN

LEADERS CAME UP WITH CUT

BASEBALBACKS FOR THAT

COUNTRY, BUT EUROPEAN

LEADERS ARE STRUGGLING WITH

OTHER KEY ISSUES, LIKE

REDUCING GREECE'S DEBT.

FORMER CHAIRMAN ALAN

GREENSPAN SAYS THE MAJOR

PROBLEM IS THE DIVIDE

BETWEEN THE NORTHERN AND

SOUTHERN COUNTRIES IN THE

E.U., AND, PAT, HE TELLS

CNBC THAT THE EUROPEAN DEBT

IS DUMED TO FAIL.

Pat: I'M WITH HIM ON

THAT ONE.

WE HAVE BANKRUPTCY HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES, CHAPTER

11, YOU WORK OUT DEBTS.

GENERAL MOTORS DID IT.

GENERAL MOTORS WAS PROBABLY

BIGGER THAN GREECE.

AND I DON'T KNOW THE

NUMBERS, BUT I IMAGINE IT

WAS.

AND SO THEY OWE SOME MONEY.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO?

YOU SAY, WELL, THE DEBTORS

BROKE AND IF YOU WANT TO GET

PAID, YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE A

SO-CALLED HAIRCUT, AND YOU

GET 25 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR,

30 CENTS, 50 CENTS ON THE

DOLLAR.

AND YOU DO A WORKOUT.

AND YOU HAVE SOMEBODY DO

DEBTOR FINANCING.

IT WILL BE BE VERY SIMPLE.

BUT THE EUROPEANS CAN'T SEEM

TO GET TOGETHER.

SO THEY TALK AND TALK AND

TALK AND TALK, AND THEY MADE

A BIG DEAL OUT OF SOMETHING

THAT IS RELATIVELY SIMPLE.

AND ALAN GREENSPAN SAYS YOU

HAVE TWO CULTURES.

YOU'VE GOT SOUTHERN EUROPE

THAT HAS SORT OF A LES SE

FAIR MENTALITY, AND THE

NORTHERN EUROPEANS, WHO ARE

VERY STRONG IN THE WAY THEY

DO BUSINESS, AND HE SAYS

THAT THE CULTURES ARE

CLASHING.

HE MAY BE RIGHT, BUT ALL WE

KNOW IS THAT IF EUROPEANS

KEEP ON DITHERING WITH A

RELATIVELY SIMPLE PROBLEM

WITH GREECE, AND THEN MAYBE

PORTUGAL AND SPAIN, THEY'RE

GOING TO BRING THE WHOLE

WORLD INTO SOME KIND OF

CHAOS, AND THEY DON'T HAVE

TO DO IT.

LEE?

Reporter: PAT, A

FEDERAL JUDGE HAS BLOCKED

PARTS OF NORTH CAROLINA'S

NEW ABORTION LAW.

IT WOULD HAVE REQUIRED

DOCTORS TO SHOW A WOMAN AN

ULTRASOUND BEFORE PERFORMING

AN ABORTION.

DOCTORS WOULD ALSO HAVE TO

DESCRIBE THE FETUS IN DETAIL

AND ALLOW THE MOTHER TO HEAR

THE BABY'S HEARTBEAT.

U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE

CATHERINE EAGLE BLOCKED THAT

PART OF THE LAW.

SUPPORTERS SAY OFFERING AN

ULTRASOUND WOULD PROTECT

THOUSANDS OF BABIES AND SAVE

WOMEN FROM THE EMOTIONAL

EFFECTS OF ABORTION.

A PRO LIFE GROUP IS WAGEING

ITS WAR AGAINST ABORTION

WITH A DOCUMENTARY THAT HAS

GONE VIRAL.

IT USES HITLER AND THE

HOLOCAUST IN AN EFFORT TO

TURN PEOPLE AWAY FROM

ABORTION.

DO YOU KNOW ADOLPH

HITLER?

NO.

Reporter: RAY COMFORT

FOUND HE COULD TURN PRO

CHOICE PEOPLE AWAY FROM

SUPPORTING ABORTION WHEN HE

MADE THEM REALIZE THEY WERE

TREATING UNBORN BABIES LIKE

ADOLPH HITLER TREATED THE

JEWS.

IT HAD WAY MORE THAN A

MILLION VIEWS ON LINE.

NOW COMFORT'S FRIENDS AND

ALLIES ARE PASSING OUT A

D.V.D. VERSION AT COLLEGES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

WE'RE OUT HERE TO PASS

OUT THE 180 D.V.D.s TO

HOPEFULLY CHANGE STUDENTS'

MINDS ABOUT ABORTION.

Reporter: ERIC TAKES

THE BATTLE AGAINST ABORTION

PERSONALLY.

HE THINKS ABOUT IT AS HE

LOOKS AT HIS THREE ADOPTED

CHILDREN.

THEY CAME FROM WOMBS

WHERE ABORTION HAD TAKEN

PLACE PREVIOUSLY.

I LOOK AT MY KIDS AND SAY

THEY ARE THE ONES WHO MADE

IT.

Reporter: 180 ISN'T THE

ONLY ONE WHO USES ABORTION

IN UNITING PRO LIFE PEOPLE.

JASON WAS MET A MAN WHO

FASTS.

I'M GOING TO GIVE UP

COFFEE UNTIL ABORTION ENDS.

I SAID MISERY LOVES

COMPANY.

AND I ASKED PEOPLE TO

VIDEOTAPE THEMSELVES DOING

THEIR FAVORITE THING.

Reporter: THERE WAS A

VIDEO MOCKING PEOPLE WHO

SACRIFICE SOMETHING THEY

LOVE UNTIL ABORTION ENDS.

I'M IMPRESSED WITH THE

YOUNG MEN WHO THINK THEY CAN

SWAY WOMAN WITH THEIR BODIES

BY MEANINGLESS GESTURES.

Reporter: AND JENNY

ANSWERED AARON'S VIDEO POINT

BY POINT.

THE POINT ISN'T WHAT

WE'RE GIVING UP, BUT THE

FACT THAT WE'RE GIVING

SOMETHING UP.

EACH TIME WE FEEL THE DESIRE

TO HAVE WHAT WE GAVE UP, IT

REMINDS US TO ACT ON OUR

CONVICTIONS.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS

REPORTING FROM

MONTGOMERY COLLEGE, AND

ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND.

Reporter: PAT, I THINK

THIS IS A GROWING SENTIMENT

AGAINST ABORTION.

Pat: NO QUESTION.

A FEW YEARS AGO THE

SENTIMENT WAS OVERWHELMING

IN FAVOR OF ABORTION.

BUT THIS YOUNGER GENERATION

SAYS, HEY, THAT'S A BABY AND

IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME.

THEY BEGIN TO REALIZE WHAT

IS THERE.

I THINK OVERWHELMING NOW, IN

AMERICA, THE SENTIMENT IS

AGAINST ABORTION ON DEMAND,

AND CERTAINLY SEX SELECTION

ABORTION.

I BELIEVE IT'S LIKE

SMOKING.

ONCE THE TIDE TURNED

AND, YOU KNOW, YOU HAD LESS

THAN 50% PEOPLE WHO SMOKE,

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU BEGAN TO

GET LAWS AND REGULATIONS AND

LAWSUITS AND ALL OF THE REST

TO BAN SMOKING.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE THE

SAME THING HERE ABOUT

ABORTION.

IT IS GOING TO BE CHIPPED

AWAY.

IT HAS BEEN A TERRIBLY LONG

TIME.

WE'VE SLAUGHTERED SOMEWHERE

BETWEEN 40 AND 50 MILLION

UNBORN BABIES, WHO WILL NOT

BE WITH US.

NEVERTHELESSS, WE'RE FINALLY

WAKING UP, AND THAT'S A GOOD

THING.

LEE?

Reporter: PAT, THE

SITUATION IN TURKEY IS

GROWING DESPERATE NOW

FOLLOWING LAST WEEKEND'S

MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE.

THE DEATH TOLL CONTINUES TO

CLIMB, AND THOUSANDS ARE

BEING FORCED TO SLEEP

OUTSIDE IN NEAR ZERO

TEMPERATURES.

"OPERATION BLESSING,"

THOUGH, IS ON THE SCENE.

DAVID DARR REPORTS.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

MADE IT TO THE TOWN OF

ERCHIEF.

AND I'M HERE AT A CAMP OF

ABOUT 170 FAMILIES.

AND THEY'RE STILL PUTTING UP

THEIR TENTS TODAY.

THE COLD IS SETTING IN.

YOU WANT TO HAVE A LOOK AT

THE LITTLE KIDS HERE.

THERE ARE KIDS ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

THE MOOD IS QUITE SOMBER.

THESE PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR

HOMES, HAVE BEEN DISPLACED

FROM THEIR HOMES.

THEY HAVE A VERY UNCERTAIN

FUTURE.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ASSESSING THE NEEDS HERE AND

IN VILLAGES IN THE

SURROUNDING AREAS.

TOMORROW WE'LL BE PURCHASING

ITEMS LIKE BLANKETS AND FOOD

AND ALL OF THE THINGS TO

KEEP THEM WARM.

THIS IS A COUPLE OF WEEKS

THEY HAVE FACING THEM.

OUR GERMAN PARTNER, MEDICA,

ARE TREATING PEOPLE.

PEOPLE ARE STILL BEING

DRAGGED OUT OF THE RUBBLE

WITH HORRIFIC INJURIES.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

SUPPORTING THAT MEDICAL

EFFORT. WE'RE HAVING A BIG

IIMPACT HERE, DAY ONE, IN

THE TURKEY EARTHQUAKE.

Reporter: DAVID DARR IS

REPORTING.

IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT

DAVID DARR, ALONG WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING" BILL

HORN, HAPPENED TO BE IN THE

REGION DURING THAT TIME.

DAVID HAS BEEN DISPATCHED UP

THERE.

HE HAS BEEN LIVING IN HAITI,

ADMINISTERING TAKEN CARING

FOR THE FOLKS THAT HAVE BEEN

AFFECTED BY THAT MASSIVE

EARTHQUAKE IN HAITI.

Pat: THEY WERE BOTH IN

ISRAEL DOING HUMANITARIAN

WORK THERE, AND IT IS A

SHORT WORK FOR DAVID TO GO

UP TO TURKEY.

AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP,

"OPERATION BLESSING"

DISASTER RELIEF FUND, CBN

CENTER, THAT'S THE ADDRESS.

1-800-759-0700, OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO OUR WEBSITE AND

SEE ABOUT IT.

THE DISASTER RELIEF FUND, IF

YOU WANT TO HELP "OPERATION

BLESSING" HELP THOSE PEOPLE,

JUST MARK IT ON YOUR CHECK

OR WHATEVER YOU SEND IN.

BECAUSE WE WANT TO HELP

THEM.

OKAY, KRISTI?

DID YOU SEE THE STORY

YESTERDAY THAT A

TWO-WEEK-OLD BABY WAS

RESCUED FROM THE RUBBLE

YESTERDAY?

Pat: I MISSED THAT.

IT WARMED MY HEART.

I WAS PRAYING ALL NIGHT FOR

THAT LITTLE PUMPKIN.

THOSE ARE WONDERFUL THINGS

OF HOPE.

WE'VE ALL HEARD THE SAME.

WHERE HAVE ALL OF

THE GOOD

MEN GONE?

UP NEXT, CONSERVATIVE

COMMENTATOR BILL BENNETT

SAYS WHY THEY DISAPPEARED,

AND WHAT IT IS GOING TO TAKE

TO BRING THEM ALL BACK.

I WANT TO KNOW, TOO.

Reporter: GOT A

QUESTION FOR PAT?

SEND US YOURS NOW ON

CBN.COM.

WE'LL BRING IT ON LINE WITH

YOUR QUESTIONS FROM OUR LIVE

CHATROOM LATER ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Reporter:

TOMORROW...THE CARDS AND

RANGERS ARE RACING TOWARDS

THE FINISH.

AND TEXAS IS JUST ONE WIN

AWAY FROM BRINGING THE LONE

STAR STATE ITS FIRST WORLD

SERIES TITLE.

CBN HAS ALL OF THE BASES

COVERED.

HERE FROM M.V.P. JOSH

HAMILTON.

IT'S NOT GOING TO BE

ABOUT BASEBALL.

Reporter: AND BASEBALL

SLUGGER ALBERT PUJOLS,

TOMORROW ON "THE 700 CLUB."

Pat: WHERE HAVE THE MEN

GONE?

WHERE ARE THE MEN?

THERE IS A BOOK THAT BILL

BENNETT HAS COMPILED CALLED

"THE BOOK OF MAN."

VERY INTERESTING.

BOYS NEED STRONG MALE ROLE

MODELS TO GROW UP TO BE

STRONG MEN.

THE POPULAR CULTURE IS

SENDING BOYS MIXED MESSAGES

ABOUT MANHOOD, AND ALL OF

SOCIETY IS PAYING THE

PRICE.

HERE IS LEE WEBB ABOUT THAT

STORY.

THAT'S NOT WHAT MY

HUSBAND WOULD TELL YOU IF HE

WERE HERE NOW.

YOU GIVE IT TO HIM.

HE CAN TAKE IT.

HE'S MY ON.

Reporter: IN THIS SCENE

FROM THE 1957 CLASSIC MOVIE

"THE D.I.," A MOTHER PLEADS

FOR HER SON'S MAN HAD

MANHOOD AND HIS REPUTATION

AS A MARINE.

GENERATIONS AGO, MASCULINITY

MAMAY HAVE BEEN EASIER TO

DEFINE.

MEN WERE MEN, AND VALOR AND

DUTY WAS EXPECTED.

FROM THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT

OF THE 1960s TO THE

CURRENT GENDER DEBATES, BOYS

ARE LEFT WITH A CONFUSING

CHOICE.

IN HIS NEW BOOK "THE BOOK OF

MAN, READINGS ON THE PATH TO

MANHOOD," WILLIAM BENNETT

SETS OUT TO RECLAIM MANHOOD.

WITH CONTEMPORARY PROFILES.

Pat: WELL, THE MAN WHO

PUT THIS BOOK TOGETHER, BILL

BENNETT, IS JOINING US NOW.

BILL, IT'S GREAT TO HAVE YOU

BACK ON "THE 700 CLUB."

WE MISSED YOU.

WE MISSED YOU, TOO, PAT.

WONDERFUL TO BE BACK.

THANK YOU, SIR.

Pat: THIS IS QUITE A

WONDERFUL BOOK.

IT HAS GREAT SPEECHES, LIKE

CHURCHILL'S SPEECHES AT THE

BEGINNING OF THE WAR.

AND YOU HAVE REAGAN'S SPEECH

AT POINT THE HAWK.

AND YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THESE

PARACLICHES.

THIS IS LIKE HAVING A

LIBRARY OF THE CLASSICS.

IT'S EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU.

IN SOME WAYS, IT IS SIMILAR

TO THE BOOK OF VIRTUES BACK

IN THE '90s.

BUT I'VE GOT A NUMBER OF

PROFILES OF ACTUAL LIVING

MEN.

SOME OF THE PEOPLE CALL INTO

MY RADIO SHOW, A

HOME-SCHOOLED DAD IN

HOUSTON.

A SOLDIER, A MARINE, IN

FACT, OPENS THE BOOK.

THE POINT IS THOSE SIGNALS

HAVE GOTTEN BLURRED.

THAT WAS A VERY NICE LEAD-IN

BY LEE.

WE USED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT

IT MEANS TO BE A MAN.

AND WHAT KRISTI SAID, I WANT

TO KNOW, TOO.

THE REACTION OF WOMEN HAS

BEEN VERY STRONG.

THEY SAY, YOU DON'T KNOW THE

HALF OF IT.

WOMEN TALK ABOUT THEIR

YOUNGER FRIENDS IN THEIR

20s AND 30s SAYING

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

DROP THEIR STANDARDS IN

ORDER TO GET MARRIED.

MEN HAVEN'T DISAPPEARED.

WE'VE GOT A LOT OF GOOD MEN

IN THIS SOCIETY, BUT WE

DON'T HAVE AS MANY AS WE

SHOULD HAVE.

I THINK WE HAVE FORGOTTEN

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BE A

MAN.

Pat: YOU HAVE ONE QUOTE

IN YOUR BOOK ABOUT SOMEBODY

INVADING AGAINST THE

FEMINIST MOVEMENT,

ESSENTIALLY THEY'VE NEUTERED

MEN.

WHAT HAS THE FEMINIST

MOVEMENT DOPE OVER THE

YEARS?

IT CERTAINLY HAS CHANGED

THE TERMS OF DISCUSSION.

IT FRIGHTENED A LOT OF MEN.

IT EN GURCHE ENCOURAGED

WOMEN.

WE SAID, YOU GO, GIRL, AND

THEY DID.

NOW FOR THE FIRST

GENERATION, WOMEN GRADUATE

FROM COLLEGE WITH MORE

ACHIEVEMENT AND MORE

AMBITION THAN MEN DO.

AND A LOT OF MEN ARE BACK ON

THEIR HEELS.

WHAT DO THE MEN DO?

UNFORTUNATELY, ONE OF THE

THINGS THEY DO IS PLAY VIDEO

GAMES.

I WAS SHOCKED TO FIND OUT 13

18 TO 25-YEAR-OLD MEN PLAY

MOR VIDEO GAMES THAN 12 TO

15.

AND GIRLS COMPLAIN ABOUT

THIS, BOYS WHO WILL NOT TAKE

RESPONSIBILITY.

I POINT TO THE FOUNDERS AS

WELL.

THEY THOUGHT THREE THINGS

WERE NECESSARY FOR A BOY TO

BECOME A MAN, IN DUSTRIUS

WORK.

AND SAYING THE EXPECTATIONS

WE HAVE AS BOYS, THE KINDS

OF RESPONSIBILITIES THEY

NEED TO TAKE UP AS MEN,

WE'RE NOT SURE WE NEED

THEM.

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT SURE WE

NEED MEN ANYMORE.

WELL, WE DO NEED MEN.

Pat: IN THE NEWS, IT

WAS THE CHANGING OF THE

GUARD AT IBM, AND A WOMAN IS

TAKING HIS POSITION AS HEAD

OF THIS GREAT CORPORATION,

IBM.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND THERE IS JUST A TON OF

THAT.

I WAS TALKING TO A DEAN OF

ADMISSIONS AT ONE OF THE IVY

LEAGUE SCHOOLS.

SHE LED ON IF THEY DID IT

JUST ON THE TEST SCORES,

JUST ON THE ACHIEVEMENT

LEVELS, IT WOULD BE 80%

FEMALE, 80% WOMEN.

THE GRADUATION RATES ARE

REFLECTING IT.

IT USED TO BE 65% MALE, AND

NOW IT IS 62% FEMALE.

SO IT IS SHIFTING.

ALL POWER TO THE WOMEN AS

LONG AS WE DON'T CONFUSE

GENDERS.

BUT THE BOYS HAVE TO MAKE

UP.

Pat: WHAT IS THIS GOING

TO DO TO SOCIETY IF MEN

DON'T TAKE THEIR PLACES AS

MEN.

AND SUDDENLY THERE IS A GAP

AND WE HAVE A WOMAN

MATRIARCH, WHAT DOES IT DO

TO SOCIETY?

I THINK IT HURTS

SOCIETY.

INTERESTINGLY, THE FEMINISTS

ARE NOT CELEBRATING.

THEY MAY WANT TO TALK ABOUT

THE STEREOTYPES OF MEN AND

MALE DOMINATION, BUT WOMEN

WANT MEN.

THEY WANT MEN FOR THE STRONG

ARM, THEY WANT MEN FOR

PROTECTION, AND THEY WANT

MEN FOR A PARTNER IN

MARRIAGE.

WHAT I TRY TO DO IN THIS

BOOK IS REMIND PEOPLE OF

THINGS THAT ARE TRUE.

AND TO THE BOYS, AS YOU VERY

WELL SAID, THE ARRAY OF

THINGS THEY'RE OFFERED ON TV

AND ELSEWHERE IS VERY

CONFUSING.

FROM MACHO STUFF TO GAY

CULTURE, TO ALL SORTS OF

THINGS.

WHAT I'VE GOT HERE IS A

POINT OF VIEW, WHICH I THINK

IS TIME-TESTED, BASED IN

TRADITION, THAT WILL GET

BOYS TO MANHOOD.

Pat: YOU REMEMBER

GLORIA STEINMAN SAID SHE

WANTS TO BRING DOWN MEN.

IT TURNS OUT WE DO, WE

NEED EACH OTHER.

THESE ENCOURAGEMENTS FOR

WOMEN, AND SO YOU HAVE THE

HEAD OF IBM AS A WOMAN, BUT

THE BOYS HAVE TO BE BROUGHT

ALONG.

WHAT IS INTERESTING IS THAT

THE STRUCTURES OF SOCIETY,

THE CRITICAL ONES, LIKE

MARRIAGE AND THE FAMILY,

LIKE FAITH, REALLY MATTER

MORE FOR BOYS THAN FOR

GIRLS.

BOYS ARE MORE FRAGILE.

I THINK WOMEN KNOW THAT.

THEY SENSE THAT.

BUT, YOU KNOW, THE BREAKUP

OF THE FAMILY, WHICH HAS

BEEN DISASTEROUS -- WE HAVE

MORE FATHERLESSNESS.

AS A RESULT, WHO IS GUIDING

THE BOYS INTO MANHOOD.

THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO

WITH THIS BOOK.

Pat: IT IS A TERRIFIC

BOOK.

"THE BOOK OF MAN."

HAS IT BEEN RELEASED YET?

YES, SIR.

IT'S OUT.

IT IS IN BOOKSTORES AND IT

IS ON AMAZON.

I HOPE IT'S IN BOOKSTORES --

I'VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH

BOOKSTORES.

Pat: BY THE WAY, MIKE,

I HAD AN ANIMATION COMPANY

THAT DID THE BOOK OF VIRTUES

IN ANIMATION.

I HOPE THAT HELPED SOME?

THEY SURE DID.

AND IT IS THOSE WONDERFUL

STORIES IN THE BOOK OF

VIRTUES.

YOU MISSED THE CAMPAIGN,

PAT?

DO YOU WANT TO BE OUT THERE,

GET THE JUICES FLOWING?

Pat: I'M KIND OF LIKE

ONE OF THOSE OLD WAR HORSES,

YOU HEAR THE TRUMPETS, AND

THEN YOU THINK BETTER OF IT

AND SAY, I'M BETTER WHERE I

AM.

WELL, THEY'RE TAKING YOUR

IDEAS.

I REMEMBER WHEN YOU TALKED

ABOUT FLAT TAX AND OTHER

THINGS.

I HAD THIS AND THE

DEDUCTIBILITY OF CORPORATE

DIVIDENDS E.

DIVIDENDS.

IT IS CALLED THE GREAT

RELEARNING.

Pat: ANYHOW, I'VE MADE

MY RUN, AND YOU AND I HAVE

CONTRIBUTED TO THE POLITICS,

AND I'M SURE YOU ARE STILL

DOING IT.

THANK YOU, PAT.

GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.

Pat: WILLIAM

BENNETT, "THE BOOK OF MAN."

JUST AS I SAID, IF YOU

DIDN'T GET ANYTHING FROM THE

QUOTES FROM THE CHURCHILL

SPEECH, THE REAGAN SPEECH,

THESE OTHERS, IT IS WORTH

HAVING IN YOUR LIBRARY, SO

YOU LOOK AND REFER TO IT.

THERE YOU ARE.

FIND OUT WHAT A REAL MAN IS,

KRISTI.

I WANT TO KNOW.

COMING UP, A SMALL LUMP

GROWS INTO STAGE FOUR

CANCER.

HE SAID TO ME,

MR. CORNIER, I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE DAYS TO

LIVE.

I WAS THINKING, WHAT IS THIS

GOING TO BE LIKE.

BECAUSE I REALIZED I WAS

DYING.

BUT HEAR HOW HE SURVIVED,

THANKS TO HIS DOCTOR AND HIS

WIFE.

Reporter: TO LISTEN TO

OUR TOP SONGS OF THE WEEK,

GO TO CBN RADIO AT

CBN.COM.

WHEN CANCER SPREAD

THROUGHOUT JOE FORNER'S

BODY, DOCTORS THOUGHT THE

END WAS NEAR.

JOE DID, TOO, BUT NOT HIS

WIFE.

BECAUSE SHE WAS HOLDING ON

TO A SPECIAL PROMISE.

Reporter: JOE FORNER

HAD ALWAYS BEEN AN ACTIVE,

HEALTHY MAN.

I WAS SO HEALTHY.

ANY TIME I HAD ANYTHING

PHYSICALLY WRONG, I THOUGHT

I WILL TOUGH IT THROUGH.

Reporter: IN 2002,

WHILE VACATIONING WITH HIS

WIFE, TERRY, JOE FOUND A

LUMP ON HIS ARM.

I THOUGHT, I HAVE HAD

OTHER LUMPS ON MY ARM,

CYSTS, AND I THOUGHT IT IS

PROBABLY NOTHING.

I THOUGHT, JUST IGNORE IT AT

FIRST AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

HE WAS REALLY TIRED, AND

HE TOLD ME ABOUT THIS, BUT I

JUST THOUGHT, OKAY, YOU JUST

NEED TO GO TO THE DOCTOR.

Reporter: BY THE TIME

THEY CAME HOME, THE LUMP HAD

GROWN.

JOE VISITED THEIR FAMILY

DOCTOR.

HE SAID, WHATEVER IT IS,

IT'S NOT CANCER.

AND HE SAID THAT AT TWO

DIFFERENT APPOINTMENTS.

SO THAT KIND OF REALLY PUT

ME AT EASE.

HE THOUGHT IT WAS A CYST.

AND HE THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS

AN INFECTION OR SOMETHING,

SO HE GAVE ME ANTIBIOTICS

AND TRIED DIFFERENT THINGS

TO TRY TO CALM IT DOWN OR

MAKE IT GO AWAY.

Reporter: THE LUMP KEPT

GROWING, AND HIS DOCTOR

FINALLY SENT JOE FOR A

SONOGRAM.

AND THE TECH SAID THIS IS

NOT A CYST.

THESE ARE LYMPH NODES.

AT THAT TIME IT WAS GETTING

CLOSE TO GOLF-BALL SIZE.

EVENTUALLY I WENT IN TO GET

THE BIOPSY, AND THE SURGEON

SAID THE CANCER WAS TWO

BASEBALL SIZES BY THE TIME

HE TOOK ONE OF THEM AWAY FOR

THE BIOPSY.

Reporter: JOE HAD STAGE

FOUR METATASTIC MELANOMA.

THE AGGRESSIVE CANCER WAS

SPREADING THROUGHOUT HIS

BODY.

ONCE THEY TOOK EVERYTHING

OUT UNDERNEATH MY ARM, IT

SPREAD TO MY STOMACH.

SO THEY HAD TO TAKE A THIRD

OF MY STOMACH OUT AND SOME

OF MY LYMPH NODES.

Reporter: DOCTORS SENT

JOE TO PITTSBURGH, WHERE HE

RECEIVED A VERY POTENT FORM

OF CHEMOTHERAPY.

IT IS AN IMMUNE SYSTEM

BOOSTER, AND IT WAS, LIKE,

BRUTAL.

IT TURNED OUT THAT DIDN'T

WORK.

IT ONLY GREW EVEN MORE.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

THE CANCER INVADED HIS

KIDNEYS, LUNGS, AND

PANCREAS.

THE DOCTOR TOLD JOE IT WAS

ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE

HE WOULD LOSE HIS BATTLE.

HE SAID TO ME,

MR. FORNER, I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU KNOW, BUT YOU HAVE DAYS

TO LIVE.

THERE WAS TIMES WHEN, LIKE

KIND OF LATE AT NIGHT, I'D

BE LAYING IN THE HOSPITAL

AND I'D BE THINKING, YOU

KNOW, IN THE DARK, WHAT'S

THIS GOING TO BE LIKE?

BECAUSE I REALIZED I WAS

DYING.

Reporter: BUT TERRY

BELIEVED THAT GOD WOULD HEAL

JOE.

I WAS REALLY FEARFUL.

THAT'S WHEN I FEEL LIKE THE

LORD GAVE ME A PROMISE.

ABIDE IN ME, AND WHATEVER

YOU WISH, YOU WILL GET IT.

THE LORD WAS TELLING ME HE

WAS GOING TO BE OKAY.

Reporter:

THEY MET

LEVINSON, AND HE TOLD THEM

ABOUT AN EXPERTAL TREATMENT,

AND IT WAS A LONG SHOT AT

BEST, BUT THEY WERE OUT OF

OPTIONS.

IT WAS A HIGHLY TOXIC

REGIMEN, AND I WAS CONCERNED

ABOUT HIS ABILITY TO

TOLERATE IT.

HE WAS QUITE ILL AT THE

TIME.

VERY WEAK.

HAD LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT.

I CERTAINLY WAS ANXIOUS TO

GET HIM STARTED ON THERAPY,

BUT ALSO FACED IT WITH SOME

TREPIDATION BECAUSE

TREATMENTS ARE VERY

DIFFICULT TO TOLERATE.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

DANGERS, JOE AGREED TO THE

TREATMENTS.

MEANWHILE, THEIR CHURCH

PRAYED.

BELIEVING THAT GOD WOULD

HAVE THE FINAL WORD.

WHY DOES EVERYONE SAY

"THY WILL BE DONE," AND NOT

THE REST OF THAT VERSE.

WHICH IS "AS IN IN HEAVEN"

SO I STARTED THINKING, IS

MELANOMA IN HEAVEN?

IS SICKNESS IN HEAVEN?

ALL GOOD THINGS ARE IN

HEAVEN.

SO I STARTED TO ASK FOR

EVERYTHING IN HEAVEN TO COME

TO EARTH.

AFTER THE FIRST ROUND, I

COULD FEEL -- I HAD TWO

MASSES, ONE ABOVE AND BELOW

MY COLLARBONE.

I COULD FEEL THOSE SHRINK

AND GO AWAY.

AFTER THE SECOND ROUND, THEY

SAID YOU HAVE HAD

SIGNIFICANT SHRINKAGE ON THE

INSIDE.

AFTER THE THIRD ROUND OF THE

CHEMO, IT WAS TOTALLY GONE.

I HAD A P.E.T. SCAN AND HE

SAID THERE WAS NO CANCER.

HE TOLD ME WHAT HAPPENED TO

ME DOESN'T HAPPEN.

HE HAS NEVER SEEN IT

HAPPEN.

THAT'S THE MOMENT I KNEW,

AND THE MOMENT I WANTED THE

NURSES AND THE DOCTORS TO

SAY THIS IS A MIRACLE.

AND THAT THIS HAS NOT

HAPPENED BEFORE.

I FOUND THAT PATIENTS WHO

ARE PATIENTS WHO HAVE GREAT

FAITH TEND TO DO BETTER THAN

PREDICTOR.

WE CAN'T ALWAYS DETERMINE

WHO WILL RESPOND WELL AND

WHO WON'T.

THAT'S SOMETHING BEYOND OUR

CONTROL.

ULTIMATELY, GOD IS THE

ULTIMATE HEALER, AND WE PUT

OUR TRUST IN HIS HANDS.

Reporter: FOR EIGHT

YEARS JOE HAS BEEN

CANCER-FREE.

HE IS BACK TO ENJOYING LIFE,

KNOWING THAT EACH DAY IS A

GIFT FROM GOD.

THIS CANCER WAS WAY

BIGGER THAN ME.

BUT I FOUND THAT WITH GOD ON

MY SIDE, THAT CHANGES

EVERYTHING.

IT'S A GAME-CHANGER, HAVING

HIM. AND HE JUST SHOWED ME

HOW WEAK I WAS APART FROM

HIM, BUT HOW STRONG I COULD

BE IN HIM.

FOR ME, I THINK CANCER

WAS ONE OF THOSE CALLS ON

OUR MARRIAGE THAT TOOK ALL

EXPECTATION OFF OF JOE AND

PUT ALL OF MY EXPECTATION ON

GOD.

I FEEL LIKE THE LOVE OF

CHRIST CAME OUT OF ME.

THERE IS, INDEED, NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD.

IF HE CHOOSES TO HEAL, HE

CAN DO IT IN A FLASH.

AND I THINK THAT HAS HELPED

ME, JUST TO TRUST HIM, TRUST

HIS GOODNESS, TRUST HIS

POWER AND HIS ABILITY.

YOU KNOW, AS I WAS

WATCHING THAT STORY, ALL I

KEPT THINKING OF IT IS NEVER

TOO LATE TO HOPE.

TO HOPE.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

TO HOPE.

TO HAVE THE HOPE AND THE

POWER AND BLESSING OF JESUS

CHRIST.

IF THAT THING THAT YOU'VE

BEEN CRYING OUT FOR, THAT

THE LORD CAN AND WILL ANSWER

IT.

JUST HAVE HOPE AND FAITH TO

KNOW THAT GOD IS FAITHFUL TO

HIS PROMISES.

PAT, WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE

PEOPLE RIGHT NOW, DON'T WE?

Pat: WE SURE DO.

LISTEN TO THIS.

THIS IS ENCOURAGEMENT.

THIS IS FROM POWDER SPRING

GEORGIA.

VICKI HAD WHAT IS CALLED DRY

EYE SYNDROME.

AND THE DOCTOR SAID TAKE

DROPS, AND NOTHING

HAPPENED.

LAST MONTH VICKI WAS IN THE

STUDIO FOR A BROADCAST OF

"THE 700 CLUB," WHEN KRISTI

HAD THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

SHE WAS HERE, I GUESS.

SOMEONE WITH DRY EYE, IT IS

EXTREME, AND THE LORD IS

HEALING YOU.

AND VICKI SAID SHE FELT A

PRESENCE OF THE LORD, AND

THE NEXT DAY SHE WAS OUT IN

THE SUN, NO PROBLEM.

GOD IS A GOOD GOD.

HERE IS MORE ENCOURAGEMENT.

WE'VE GOT TERESA, FROM

GEORGIA, SHE WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH C.O.P.D., AND IN 2006,

SHE WAS ON OXYGEN 24 HOURS A

DAY.

THE DOCTORS SAID SHE WOULD

PROBABLY DIE FROM THIS

CONDITION.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND PAT, YOU

SAID, GOD IS HEALING A LUNG

CONDITION.

YOU WILL BREATHE, AND ALL OF

A SUDDEN YOUR BREATH WILL

COME FREE.

SHE FELT A WARMTH COME

THROUGH HER CHEST, AND HER

NEXT READING, HER BLOOD

OXYGEN WAS 99%.

AND THE DOCTORS GAVE GOD THE

CREDIT.

IT HAPPENED TWO YEARS AGO,

AND, GUESS WHAT?

TERESA IS STILL GOING

STRONG.

Pat: YOU DIDN'T KNOW

VICKI.

I DIDN'T KNOW TERESA.

UH-UH.

Pat: BUT GOD KNEW

THEM.

GOD KNOWS YOU LISTENING IN

THIS AUDIENCE.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, WHATEVER

COUNTRY YOU'RE IN, WHATEVER

CONDITION YOU'RE IN, THERE

IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

HE IS THE AUTHOR OF

EVERYTHING.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

AND WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD FOR YOU.

FATHER, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU.

AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS

CHRIST OF NAZARETH, WE SPEAK

THE WORD OF FAITH.

THANK YOU, LORD.

SOMEBODY HAS A SENIORS SINUS

PROBLEM.

PUT YOUR HAND ON THAT PART

OF YOUR FACE.

RIGHT NOW THOSE SIGNS

SINUSES ARE OPENING UP AND

THE INFECTIONS COMPLETELY

GONE IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH AN

INFLAMED TOOTH, THE MOLAR IS

IMPACTED.

ALL OF THAT INFECTIONS GOING

OUT AND THE TOOTH IS GOING

TO BE FIND.

KRISTI?

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH A

NUMBING IN YOUR FINGERS AND

HANDS AND YOU'RE ALWAYS

TRYING TO SHAKE IT AWAY.

RIGHT NOW PUT YOUR HANDS

TOGETHER.

AS YOU COLLAPSE YOUR HANDS

TOGETHER, YOU'LL FEAR THE

POWER AND THE PRESENCE OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT COME FORWARD

IN YOUR BODY.

AND WHAT YOU COULD NOT DO

BEFORE, YOU DO IT BY FAITH.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Pat: A RINGING IN THE

EARS HAS GONE AWAY.

THE LORD HAS TAKEN THAT

AWAY.

YOU'RE HEALED IN JESUS'

NAME.

PRAISE GOD.

SOMEONE IS HAVING A GREAT

GRIEF.

YOU'VE LOST A LOVED ONE AND

YOU'RE BURDENED DOWN WITH

GRIEF.

THE JOY OF THE LORD WILL BE

YOUR STRENGTH.

LOOK UP AND PRAISE GOD AND

REALIZE YOUR LOVED ONE IS

WITH HIM.

YOU CAN BEGIN TO PRAISE THE

LORD FOR HIS GOODNESS.

HE IS SUPPLYING THE NEED OF

THOSE WHO ARE HURTING AND

SUFFERING.

IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS ALSO A PERSON

WITH AN INFECTION IN YOUR

FOOT.

THE LORD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION RIGHT NOW.

THE NEXT 24 HOURS IN THE

MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS

CHRIST.

Pat: AMEN.

I LOVE PRAYING, DON'T

YOU, PAT?

Pat: I DO.

IT'S FUN.

IT'S FUN TO SEE ANSWERS.

I WAS READING A BOOK ON THE

UNIVERSE, HUGH ROSS' BOOK

"WHY THE UNIVERSE IS LIKE IT

IS," AND YOU BEGIN TO THINK

OF GOD, HOW BIG HE IS.

HOW GLORIOUS HE IS.

HOW WISE HE IS.

YOU THINK, ALL I'M TALKING

ABOUT IS A HEADACHE.

RIGHT.

EXACTLY.

Pat: OR AN INFECTION IN

MY FOOT.

GOD CREATED IT ALL.

IT IS SO EASY FOR HIM.

BE ENCOURAGED.

STILL AHEAD, YOUR QUESTIONS

FOR PAT.

JANINE BEGINS, AND SHE SAYS,

IS IT A SIN TO SEEK HYPNOTIC

HELP OR HELP FROM A LIFE

COACH?

AND A LOT MORE ON "THE 700

CLUB."

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

NEWMONNEW HAMPSHIRE

LAWMAKERS TAKE STEPS TO

REPEAL A LAW ALLOWING GAY

MARRIAGE.

THEY VOTED TUESDAY TO

REPLACE IT WITH CIVIL

UNIONS.

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE GAME LEGAL

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE IN 2010,

BUT SINCE THEN REPUBLICANS

HAVE GAINED CONTROL OF THE

STATE LEGISLATURE, AND

CONSERVATIVES HAVE BEEN

WORKING TO RESTORE THE

TRADITIONAL DEFINITION OF

MARRIAGE.

THEY WILL NEED TWO-THIRDS OF

THE HOUSE, THOUGH, TO VOTE

FOR IT.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE GOVERNOR

HAS SAID HE WILL VETO THE

MEASURE IF IT PASSES.

A FREE LANCE PUBLIC RADIO

HOST HAS LOST HER JOB

BECAUSE OF HER INVOLVEMENT

WITH THE "OCCUPY WALL

STREET."

LISA SIMON HAS LOST HER

JOB.

SHE IS ALSO THE SPOKESWOMAN

FOR PROTESTORS.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY

WHO PRODUCES HER SHOW SAYS,

IT IS FINE IF YOU WANT TO BE

A LEADER OF A MOVEMENT, BUT

YOU CAN'T ALSO BE IN A

JOURNALISTIC ROLE."

LATEST BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND

KRISTI

WILL BE BACK

AFTER THIS.

Pat: 2011 HAS BEEN ONE

OF THE DEADLIEST YEARS FOR

TORNADOES IN THE HISTORY OF

THE UNITED STATES.

LAST MAY ONE STORM KILLED

MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE.

WIPED OUT PART OF THE CITY

OF JOPLIN, MISSOURI, LEFT

ONE FAMILY STRUGGLING TO

REBUILD.

Reporter: JOHN AND

DEBBIE LACEY WERE LEFT

HOMELESS AFTER A TORNADO IN

JOPLIN, MISSOURI, AND WERE

LIVING IN A TENT BEHIND WHAT

USED TO BE THEIR HOUSE.

THEY HAD NO HOMEOWNERS

INSURANCE.

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

HOME DEPOT PLANNED TO

SURPRISE THIS FAMILY WITH A

GIFT THEY WOULD REMEMBER FOR

THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

JOHN IS A NASCAR FAN, ONE OF

HIS FAVORITE DRIVERS, JOEY,

CAME ALONG TO HELP REBUILD.

THEY'RE DOING A GREAT JOB

PUTTING THIS HOUSE

TOGETHER.

Reporter: JOHN SPOTTED

JOEY OUT OF A CROWD OF 400

PEOPLE.

LOOK.

THESE GUYS ARE RACE CAR

FANS.

THEY WANT TO SAY HELLO.

Reporter: THEN THE

LACEY'S, AND THE REST OF

THEIR FAMILY, SAW THE HOME

FOR THE FIRST TEAM.

COME ON IN.

OH OH, MY GOSH!

WE WERE ON OUR WAY OVER

HERE TO PAINT AND IT WAS ALL

COMPLETED.

I WAS EXPECTING JUST THE

ROOF AND THE WINDOWS AND THE

SIDING DONE.

I DIDN'T EXPECT THE INSIDE

TO BE DONE AS WELL.

AND FURNISHED.

YOU ALL MADE IT POSSIBLE

FOR US TO HAVE OUR LIFE

AGAIN.

WE WERE KIND OF LOST AND

DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO GO.

AND NOW WE DO.

THE STORM AIN'T GOING TO GET

US DOWN.

WE WANT TO THANK "OPERATION

BLESSING," HOME DEPOT.

WITHOUT THEM, THIS WOULDN'T

BE POSSIBLE.

Pat: WE CARE.

WE CARE ABOUT THE

SUFFERING.

IN YOUR NAME, WE REACH OUT

WITH "OPERATION BLESSING."

YOU CAN, AGAIN -- WE TALK

ABOUT TURKEY, JOPLIN,

MISSOURI, WHEREVER THERE IS

TROUBLES.

JAPAN, EARTHQUAKES,

TSUNAMIS.

WE'RE THERE FOR PEOPLE

BECAUSE WE CARE.

JESUS CARES.

GOD LOVES YOU.

1 JOHN: "GOD IS LOVE."

NOT GOD IS LOVING.

"GOD IS LOVE."

HE LOVES PEOPLE.

HE CARES.

OKAY.

I LOVE THAT.

I WAS KIND OF CAUGHT IN ALL

YOU WERE SAYING BECAUSE THAT

IS LOVELY.

WE'RE GOING TO SWITCH GEARS

A LITTLE BIT.

THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE SHOW

WE ASKED YOU TO LOG ON TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

JEANNIE ASKS, "IS IT A SIN

TO SEEK THERAPY FROM A

HYPNOTIST OR A LIFE COACH?

WOULD I BE SURROUNDING MY

MIND TO THIS PERSON?"

Pat: YES, YOU WOULD.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO A HIP

HYPNOTIST, YOUR OPENING UP

YOUR MIND.

YOU'RE GETTING SLEEPY,

SLEEPY, AND YOU WON'T FEEL

PAIN.

WHEN YOU WAKE UP, YOU'RE

GOING TO DO SOMETHING.

YOU SURRENDERED YOURSELF.

YOU SAY, IS IT A SIN?

IT IS JUST NOT SMART.

TO GIVE THE INNER PART OF

YOUR MIND OR BEING TO

SOMEBODY ELSE.

I LOVE THAT.

ONE OF THE THINGS I'VE BEEN

STUDYING, IN THRILL PIENS,

PIENS-- PHILLIPIANS, WHEN HE

TALKS ABOUT GUARD YOUR HEART

TO CHRIST JESUS.

THIS IS A SECRET PLACE.

OUR MIND IS THE LEEWAY TO

GET TO THAT SECRET PLACE.

YOU HAVE TO GUARD IT.

LAURIE WRITES,

"I TOOK CARE

OF MY MOTHER THE LAST 14

YEARS OF HER LIFE.

BEFORE SHE DIED, SHE CHANGED

HER WILL AND

LEFT EVERYTHING

TO ME BUT DIDN'T TELL MY

SIBLINGS ABOUT IT.

THEY NEVER OFFERED TO HELP

OR TAKE CARE OF MY MOTHER.

NOW THEY WON'T EVEN SPEAK TO

ME.

WHAT DO I DO?"

Pat: ENJOY THE MONEY.

OH, MY GOODNESS.

Pat: IT WAS YOUR

MOTHER'S CHOICE.

IT WAS HER MONEY AND YOU

HELPED HER AND SHE LEFT YOU

SOMETHING IN THEIR WILL.

IF THE SIBLINGS DON'T LIKE

IT, IT IS TOUGH LUCK.

CAN I SAY SOMETHING?

I THINK THE MOM LEFT HER ALL

OF THE MONEY.

HERE IS AN IDEA: WHAT IF THE

WOMEN SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT,

I'LL DIVVY IT ALL UP.

I HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY.

Pat: MAYBE SHE NEEDS

IT.

I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW.

Pat: THE BIBLE DOES SAY

THIS, AND IT'S VERY TRUE,

WHEN YOU STAND PRAYING, AND

YOU REMEMBER THAT SOMEBODY

HAS GONE AGAINST YOU, GO TO

THAT ONE AND MAKE PEACE.

GO TO THOSE PEOPLE, IF YOU

POSSIBLY CAN, AND MAKE

PEACE.

YOU CAN SEE IF YOU CAN WORK

IT OUT.

LOOK AT YOU, YOU KIND OF

CHANGED YOUR TUNE.

THAT'S PRETTY GOOD.

Pat: I'M BEING

BIBLICAL.

THE OTHER WAY IS MY OLD

NATURE SPEAKING.

I KNOW.

YOU DID GOOD.

ONE VIEWER SAYS, "CAN

DONATING TO A CHARITY COUNT

AS TITHING?"

Pat: SURE.

I DON'T SEE WHY NOT.

IT DEPENDS ON WHAT THE

CHARITY IS.

I MEAN, IF IT IS, I WON'T GO

INTO IT.

OF COURSE IT CAN COUNT AS

TITHING, EN MY OPINION.

OF COURSE, IF THE CHARITY IS

FOR ADVANCING ABORTIONS OR

FOR RADICAL CAUSES OR

PROMOTING COMMUNISM, I DON'T

THINK THAT IS A TITHE.

THE NEXT QUESTION, DEBRA

WRITES, "WHAT ARE YOUR

THOUGHTS ON JEF JOVHOVA'S

WITNESSES?

I'M LEANING TOWARDS THAT

RELIGION."

Pat: WELL, THEY SAID

THE WORLD WAS GOING TO COME

TO AN END.

AND THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO

TEACH ABOUT JEHOVAH.

I THINK YOU WOULD BE MAKING

A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.

IT IS A CULT.

AND YOU GET INTO IT, AND IT

WILL HURT YOU.

THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN

JESUS AS A MESSIAH, DO THEY?

Pat: NO.

THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS

THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN.

MY BOYFRIEND AND I ARE

LIVING TOGETHER.

WE BELIEVE IN JESUS, BUT WE

DON'T KNOW WHY WE HAVE TO

GET MARRIED.

IT IS JUST A PIECE OF

PAPER."

Pat: IF YOU'RE HAVING

SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE, IT

IS CALLED FORNICATION.

AND FORNICATION IS A SIN.

IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE.

I DON'T THINK HAVING A PIECE

OF PAPER, NECESSARILY, IS

WHAT YOU NEED, BUT ARE YOU

COMMITTED TO EACH OTHER FOR

THE REST OF YOUR LIVES.

HAVE YOU SWORN VOWS TO ONE

ANOTHER YOU WILL KEEP AND

LOVE AND CHERISH AND HONOR

AND ALL OF THAT OTHER STUFF

UNTIL DEATH DO YOU PART.

ARE YOU COMMITTED THAT WAY?

OR ARE YOU JUST HAVING A

LITTLE FLING TOGETHER AND

THEN WERE YOU GO OFF

TOGETHER, AND YOU SLIP OUT

THE BACK, JACK, AND ALL OF

THAT STUFF?

ARE YOU GOING TO WALK OUT?

WHAT IS IT?

MAKE UP YOUR MIND.

YES, WHAT YOU'RE DOING RIGHT

NOW IS FORNICATION, AND,

YES, IT IS A SIN.

WE'VE GOT TO GO, BUT I

LOVE THIS ABOUT THE "BACK

JACK".

Pat: "DROP OFF THE KEY,

LEE."

WE WOULD LOVE TO ANSWER

ALL OF YOUR QUESTION.

WE HAVE A PHENOMENAL

INTERVIEW COMING UP WITH

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR BISHOP

WELLINGTON MOON.

THE REASON HE SENT US THE

HOLY GHOST IS SO WE DON'T

HAVE TO DO THIS GREAT BATTLE

BY OURSELVES.

I LOVE IT.

BISHOP BOONE SHOWS US HOW TO

MAKE THE HOLY GHOST YOUR

FRIEND.

UP NEXT.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

WHAT IF SOMEONE WAS WITH

YOU ALL DAY LONG, AND, GUESS

WHAT, YOU COMPLETELY IGNORED

HIM?

THAT'S WHAT AUTHOR

WELLINGTON BOONE SAYS

HAPPENS EVERY DAY TO THE

MOST IGNORED PERSON IN THE

WORLD.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter:Y$@ BISHOP

WELLINGTON BOONE IS A

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR,

NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED

SPEAKER, AND THE FOUNDING

PASTOR OF THE FATHER'S HOUSE

CHURCH IN GEORGIA.

THE REASON HE SENT US THE

HOLY GHOST IS SO THAT WE

DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS GREAT

BATTLE BY OURSELVES.

Reporter: IN HIS

UPCOMING BOOK "HOLY GHOST IS

MY FRIEND," THE BISHOP URGES

CHRISTIANS TO GO BEYOND JUST

AN EXPERIENCE, AND TO ENGAGE

THE HOLY SPIRIT IN A REAL

AND LASTING RELATIONSHIP.

WELL, PLEASE WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB" OUR

PERSONAL FRIEND BISHOP

WELLINGTON BOONE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING

BACK.

THANK YOU.

WE LOVE IT WHEN YOU'RE

HERE.

I HAVE A GREAT TIME.

I'M EXCITED ABOUT THE

TOPIC, THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND YOU SAY THE MOST IGNORED

PERSON IN THE WORLD.

WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?

WELL, HE WAS SENT BY

JESUS.

HE CHANGED HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE DICIPLES BY SAYING

I NO LONGER CALLED YOU SLAVES.

I CALL YOU FRIENDS.

HE SAYS I'M GOING TO SEND

YOU SOMEBODY ELSE THAT IS

JUST LIKE ME TO RELATE TO

YOU.

BECAUSE HE ESTABLISHED

HIMSELF AS A FRIEND TO HIS

DICIPLES, THE HOLY GHOST

WILL COME TO BE A FRIEND TO

US.

THAT WAS HUGE FOR ME.

I LOOKED AT WHAT HE COULD

DO, BUT I NEVER REALLY SPENT

TIME CULTIVATING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM LIKE I

WOULD A FRIEND.

SO I'M KIND OF USING HIM

RATHER THAN RELATING TO

HIM.

AND THAT'S HUGE.

A LOT OF CHRISTIANS DON'T

EVEN KNOW THAT THE HOLY

SPIRIT IS FOR THEM.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

IT IS LIKE THEY SAY, I

ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS MY

LORD AND SAVIOR, AND THEY

CONFESS WITH THEIR MOUTH AND

LIAR THAT' -- AND THEIR

HEART, BUT THEY DON'T WALK

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

IF A FRIEND COMES OVER

YOUR HOUSE EVERY DAY, THE

NEIGHBORS WOULD SAY, DOESN'T

THAT PERSON HAVE A HOME?

BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE

ONLY PERSON WHO COMES TO

STAY.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO CULTIVATE

INTIMACY WITH HIM SO WE CAN

GET TO KNOW JESUS.

BECAUSE HE IS THE PERSON

JESUS SAYS HE IS GOING TO

TAKE OF MIND AND SHOW IT TO

HIM.

PEOPLE MAY KNOW THE LETTER

OF SCRIPTURE, MAY READ THE

SCRIPTURE, BUT THE PERSON OF

SCRIPTURE HAS TO BE REVEALED

BY THE HOLY GHOST.

HOW DO WE GROW WITH THE

HOLY GHOST?

HOW DO WE GROW WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT?

WHEN I REALIZED THIS, HE

IS THE ONE WITH ALL OF THE

ANSWERS.

SO I STARTED TO SAY, WHERE

DID HE SHOW UP IN THE BIBLE?

WHAT WAS HE DID THERE?

WHAT IS HE SHOWING ME TODAY?

AND HOW DOES IT RELATE TO ME

TODAY?

THOSE FOUR THINGS ARE HUGE.

GIVE ME SOME OF THE

ANSWERS.

EVERYWHERE HE SHOWS UP,

WE HAVE TO LOOK AT IN TERMS

OF JUST BIBLICAL

INTERPRETATION, WHAT WAS THE

SCENE ALL ABOUT.

THE EARTH WAS OUT IN A VOID,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE

SPIRIT OF GOD MOVES.

SO HE THEN BECOMES THE

ANSWER TO THE VOID AND THE

EMPTINESS THAT WAS ON THE

EARTH.

SO LATER ON WE UNDERSTOOD

THAT HE CAME WITH THE POWER

TO MANIFEST WHATEVER THE

WORD DECLARES.

SO THEREFORE THE WORD, WHICH

IS JESUS, AND THE SPIRIT

WORK TOGETHER.

SO FATHER -- GOD THE FATHER

IS OVER THE OPERATION.

JESUS IS OVER THE

ADMINISTRATION, AND THE HOLY

GHOST IS OVER THE

MANIFESTATIONS.

SO THEREFORE HE IS THE ONE,

WHEN WE START LOOKING TO

WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO ON

EARTH, HE IS THE PERSON THAT

MAKES IT ALL HAPPEN.

HE IS THE GREATEST RESOURCE

PERSON ON THE EARTH BECAUSE

HE IS THE ONE THAT BRINGS TO

PASS WHAT JESUS HAS

DECLARED.

SO I WANT TO KNOW, WHAT DID

YOU DO?

SO YOU LOOK AT CREATION, AND

THEN YOU LOOK AT MARY AND

THE CONCEPTION, THAT GABLE

SPOKE TO HER.

AND THEN IT SAYS, AND THE

HOLY GHOST CAME UPON HER.

AND JESUS GETS BAPTIZED BY

JOHN, AND IT SAYS "AND THE

SPIRIT OF GOD COMES UPON

HIM."

AND THE THEN THE HOLY GHOST

LEADS HIM.

WHO RAISED HIM FROM THE

DEAD?

THE HOLY GHOST.

AND THEN GOD SAYS, I'M GOING

TO SEND HIM DOWN HERE FOR

YOU.

AND I SAID, WOW, WHEN I LOOK

AT ALL OF THE STUFF HE DID

IN HISTORY, AND WHAT HIS

ASSIGNMENT IS, AND THEN THE

POWER THAT IS BEHIND HIM, I

SAID, WOW, HOW CAN I IGNORE

SOMEBODY LIKE THAT.

WHEN I LOOK AT ADAM, HIS

STINT WITH HIS WIFE -- HE

WAS IGNORING.

AND YOU LOOK AT THE AVERAGE

MAN WHO SAYS, I DON'T

UNDERSTAND MY WIFE.

YOU'RE IGNORING HER.

WHEN I LOOKED AT JESUS AND

THE HOLY GHOST, I REALIZED

I'VE BEEN IGNORING HIM.

SO YOU KNOW WHAT I DID?

I REPENTED.

I'M SO SORRY THAT I IGNORED

YOU.

I'M SORRY YOU WERE SENT HERE

AND YOU'VE BEEN A FAITHFUL

FRIEND AND I'VE BEEN THE

UNRELIABLE AND UNFAITHFUL

ONE.

WHAT DID YOU DO TO HELP

THAT RELATIONSHIP.

SO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD WENT FROM HERE TO

HERE.

FIRST OF ALL, ADMIT WHERE

I WAS.

SECONDLY, I DON'T PRAY TO

HIM, BUT I CERTAINLY CAN

COMMUNICATE TO HIM AND TALK

TO HIM.

AND THIRDLY, I STARTED DOING

WHAT HE SAID.

THE INDICATORS.

AND IT WASN'T INS

INSTANTANEOUS, LIKE INSTANT

GRITS, BECAUSE I KNOW IN

THIS COUNTRY IT IS INSTANT.

I KNEW I NEEDED TO START

TALKING TO HIM, AND SEEING

WHAT COMES TO PASS AFTER

OBEYING HIM.

AND I FIND HE STARTED

TELLING ME WHAT I LOOK LIKE

IN THE FACE OF JESUS.

I STARTED GROWING AND SEEING

MORE IN SCRIPTURE.

IT STARTED OPENING UP TRUTH

TO ME LIKE I NEVER SAW.

IT IS ALL ABOUT "THE HOLY

GHOST IS MY FRIEND," THE

BISHOP'S NEW BOOK.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

HERE.

DO I HAVE TIME TO THROW IT

OVER TO PAT?

I DO.

I'M THROWING IT OVER TO

YOU.

Pat: HE IS A GREAT

GUY.

TOMORROW, FROM ADDICT TO ALL

STAR.
