The tale of two Rangers. Country music's Keni Thomas shares about his time as an Army Ranger, and Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton talks about his improbable journey to baseball super stardom. Read Transcript


Reporter: 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.

THAT'S THE WALL!

Reporter: CBN HAS ALL

OF THE BASES COVERED.

HEAR FROM M.V.P. JOSH

HAMILTON.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE

ABOUT BASEBALL.

Reporter:

AND SLUGGER

ALBERT PUJOLS.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

Reporter: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WE WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

TODAY WE MIGHT HAVE

SOMETHING THAT MAY BE ONE OF

THE MOST IMPORTANT PROGRAMS

WE HAVE EVER DONE.

IT IS PROBABLY SOMETHING YOU

WILL ONLY HEAR ON "THE 700

CLUB."

LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY, MAYBE

GET YOUR FRIENDS TO TUNE IN

BECAUSE IT IS DYNAMITE.

ISLAMICS MADE A STRONG

SHOWING IN TUNISIA'S NEW

ELECTION.

AND THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT

ISLAMIC LAW.

AND SOME ANY ISLAM, NOT

DEMOCRACY, IS DEM NATING THE

SO -- DOMINATING THE

SO-CALLED RESTORATION

SPRING.

Terry: CHRIS MITCHELL

HAS MORE.

Reporter: WHEN MOHAMMED

DIED 14 CENTURIES AGO, THE

MUSLIM WORLD NEEDED SOMEONE

TO TAKE THE PROPHET'S

PLACE.

IT WAS THE LEADERSHIP OF

ISLAM AFTER THE DEATH OF

MOHAMMED, THE PROPHET OF

ISLAM.

Reporter: THE LAST

CALIFIT WAS LOCATED HERE IN

ISTANBUL, TURKEY.

FOR 400 YEARS, ISTANBUL AND

THE PALACE BEHIND ME, WAS

THE POLITICAL CENTER OF THE

MUSLIM WORLD.

FROM HERE THEY RULED THE

OTTOMAN EMPIRE AS CAYLISTS.

BUT IN 1924, THE TURKISH

LEADER ALABAH ABOLISHED IT.

TO OWN THE CALABAH IS TO

RULE THE

WORLD.

HE, HIMSELF, CAN DECLARE A

HOLY WAR, A JIHAD.

Reporter: SOME BELIEVE

A RESTORED CALAFIT, WILL

RESTORE IT.

THEY INCLUDE THE TALIBAN,

al-QAEDA, HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH,

AND THE GRAND DADDY OF THEM

ALL, THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

WAS SET UP IN 1928, FOUR

YEARS AFTER THE DISBANNING

OF THE MUSLIM CALAFIT, AND

THEIR SPECIFIC MISSION WAS

TO REESTABLISH THE CALAFIT,

JUST FOUR YEARS LATER.

AND THEY'VE BEEN PURSUING

THAT MISSION EVER SINCE.

THEIR GOAL REMAINS TO SET

UP ONE WORLD ISLAMIC

GOVERNMENT.

Reporter: THE

BROTHERHOOD NOW HAS A

FOOTHOLD IN EGYPT.

IT BECAME THE COUNTRY'S MOST

ORGANIZED POLITICAL PARTY.

WHAT THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD WOULD LIKE TO

SEE IS A STRONG ISLAMIC

GOVERNMENT, ARMED BY NUCLEAR

WEAPONS, AND THEY WOULD BE

GRADUALLY ELIMINATED

CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH

INFLUENCE, CHRISTIAN AND

JEWISH GOVERNMENTS.

Reporter: ANOTHER

POTENTIAL POWER PLAYER IS

TURKISH PRIME MINISTER

ERDOWAN.

WITH TURKEY AT ITS

CENTER, I THINK THAT'S WHAT

IS BEHIND HIM OFFERING TO

SEND THE TURKISH NAVY, FOR

EXAMPLE, TO PROTECT A,

QUOTE,"PEACE FLOTILLA" THAT

WOULD COME TO GAZA.

I'M SURE IN HIS HEART HE

IS DREAMING ABOUT THE

REESTABLISHMENT OF THE

CALAFIT.

HE CAN EASILY PUSH THIS AREA

INTO A GREAT WAR.

Reporter: THE THREAT OF

WAR LEAD MANY TO SAY THE

SO-CALLED ARAB SPRING IS

A

MISNOMER.

I WOULDN'T CALL IT AN

ARAB SPRING.

IT IS THE SAME KIND OF

WINTER.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

ISTANBUL, TURKEY.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, MARK THAT.

AS YOU READ THE NEWS AND YOU

SEE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

SAYING THERE IS NOTHING

WRONG WITH THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD, AND HILLARY

CLINTON SAYING THAT THE

BROTHERHOOD IS A MODERATE

GROUP.

NONSENSE.

IT HAS ONE GOAL, AND THAT IS

TO REESTABLISH THE CALAFIT,

AND TO REESTABLISH MUSLIM

DOMINATION AROUND THE

WORLD.

IT IS TO PREPARE THE WORLD

FOR THE EMERGENCE OF THE

12th AMMAN, WHO WILL COME

AFTER A PERIOD OF CHAOS,

WHEN THE WORLD IS IN

SHATTERS, AND THEN HE'LL

BRING AROUND PEACE.

AND ACCORDING TO THEIR

BELIEFS, JESUS CHRIST WILL

COME ALONG AND SAY YOU'RE

THE MAN AND I'LL JUST BE

HERE TO HELP YOU.

IT IS THE ANTI-CHRIST.

IT IS COMING ABOUT, AND

WE'RE NOT BEING ALARMISTS

AND EXTREMISTS BECAUSE THIS

IS WHAT THEY SAY.

LISTEN TO THE WORDS THAT

THESE PEOPLE SAY, ESPECIALLY

WHAT THEY SAY IN ARABIC, AND

WE'LL TRY TO GET IT

TRANSLATED FOR YOU AS THE

MONTHS GO BY.

BUT THAT'S THE GAME PLAN.

JUST WATCH IT WHEN YOU READ

YOUR HEADLINES, WHAT HAPPENS

IN TUNISIA, WHAT HAPPENS IN

EGYPT, WHAT HAPPENS IN

SYRIA, AND WHAT IS GOING TO

BE HAPPENING IN IRAQ, AS

SOON AS WE PULL OUT.

YOU READ WHAT KARZAI SAID IN

AFGHANISTAN.

HE SAID IF IT CAME DOWN TO A

SHOWDOWN BETWEEN THE UNITED

STATES AND PAKISTAN, HE

WOULD PUT AFGHANISTAN ON THE

SIDE OF PAKISTAN AGAINST THE

UNITED STATES.

NOW, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE

FACING.

OKAY, SO MUCH FOR THE

ALARMIST, BUT IT IS NOT OVER

YET.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF OUR

TOP STORIES.

Reporter: EUROPEAN

LEADERS HAVE CLINCHED A DEAL

TO BAIL OUT GREECE AND

SALVAGE THE EUROPEAN UNION.

THEY HOPE IT WILL MARK A

TURNING POINT IN THEIR

TWO-YEAR DEBT PRICES.

THE STRATEGIST INCLUDES A

REDUCTION IN GREECE'S DEBTS,

SHORING UP EUROPE'S BANKS.

AND ONE GOAL OF THE FUND IS

TO KEEP LARGER ECONOMIES,

LIKE ITALYLY AND SPAIN, FROM

GETTING DRAGGED DOWN

THURTD.

FURTHER.

THE EURO SURGED ON THE

NEWS.

EXPERTS SAY THE PLANS

EFFECTIVENESS WILL DEPEND ON

CARRYING OUT SOME TOUGH

MEASURES.

FOR EXAMPLE, TO ACHIEVE THE

REDUCTION, GREECE'S PRIVATE

CREDITORS WILL BE ASKED TO

ACCEPT 50% LOSSES ON THE

BONDS THEY HOLD.

PAT, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Pat: IT IS A TYPE OF

BANKRUPTCY.

THEY'RE GOING TO ACKNOWLEDGE

GREECE IS IN DEFAULT.

IF YOU HOLD A BAD BOND AND

YOUR DEBTORS IN DEFAULT, YOU

GET A HAIRCUT.

YOU MIGHT LOSE EVERYTHING.

IF THEY ONLY LOSE 50%, THAT

WILL BE NOT TOO BAD.

SO WHAT THE EUROPEANS ARE

SAYING IS WE'RE GOING TO

COME IN AND SUPPLY THE

CAPITAL, OR PERMIT BANKS TO

OPERATE WITH DIMINISHED

CAPITAL.

AND THE BAILOUT FUND IS ONE

TRILLION EUROS, WHICH WILL

COME OUT TO 1 TRILLION,

$400 BILLION, WHICH WILL BE

A PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL

BACKDROP.

SILVIO BERLUSCONI IS IN

TROUBLE.

HE IS GETTING READY TO CALL

FOR A NEW ELECTION.

HIS GOVERNMENT MIGHT FALL,

AND THAT COULD BRING ABOUT

CHAOS.

AND SPAIN AND PORTUGAL ARE

STILL IN BAD SHAPE.

WHAT THE EUROPEANS ARE

AFRAID OF ARE A DOMINO

EFFECT IF GREECE GOES DOWN.

THEY ARE THINKING THE GREECE

DEBT COULD GO AS HIGH AS

180% OF G.D.P.

AND NOW THEY SA SAY THEY

WANT TO GET IT DOWN TO

120%.

WHICH IS STILL WAY, WAY TOO

HIGH.

Reporter:

ANTI-PROTESTORS ARE CLASHING

WITH POLICE.

PROTESTORS IN OAKLAND HELD A

LATE-NIGHT VIGIL A DAY AFTER

AN IRAQ WAR VETERAN WAS

CRITICALLY INJURED

IN A

CRACKDOWN THERE.

MORE THAN 50 PROTESTORS WERE

ARRESTED IN ATLANTA, AFTER A

MAN WAS SCENE IN THE CAMP

WITH AN AK-47 RIFLE.

AND THEY ARE CONCERNED OVER

HYGIENE AND EVEN RAT

INFESTATIONS.

THE ANTI-WALL STREET

MOVEMENT BEGAN OVER

CORPORATE POWER, BUT AN

IRONIC TWIST IN PORTLAND,

WHERE PROTESTORS ARE TRYING

TO BECOME THE THING THEY'RE

PROTESTING.

OCCUPY PORTLAND HAS FILED

PAPERWORK TO BECOME A

CORPORATION.

A NEW DOCUMENT ON HUMAN

TRAFFICKING SHOWS IT IS A

MORE SERIOUS PROBLEM IN THE

U.S. THAN MOST PEOPLE

REALIZE.

THE MOVIE CALLED "SEX AND

MONEY" IS PRODUCED BY YOUNG

CHRISTIAN MOVIE-MAKERS.

Reporter: THE GOAL

BEHIND "SEX AND MONEY," IS

TO LET EVERY DAY AMERICANS

KNOW THAT TRAFFICKING EXISTS

IN THEIR EVERY DAY WORLD AND

IT TARGETS THEIR OWN

DAUGHTERS.

I WAS TOLD TO LIE AND SAY

I WAS 16 YEARS OLD.

THIS MAN TOC ME.

I WAS 14 YEARS OLD.

HE TOOK ME FROM HERE TO

CALIFORNIA.

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE,

AT THIS AGE, IN A LOVING,

COMFORTING HOME ENVIRONMENT

WHERE THEY CAN GROW AND

EXPLORE.

AND INSTEAD, THEY'RE

EXPLORING AND LEARNING IN

THE -- WITH PIMPS AND JOHNS

IN DANGEROUS PLACES WHERE

THEY'RE RAPED AND ABUSED.

Reporter: FILM-MAKERS

COVERED THE AREA, TO RURAL

AREAS, AND THEY SPOKE WITH

EXPERTS, FORMER PIMPS, WHO

SOLD THEIR PEOPLE HOO

WHOEVER WHY BUY, INCLUDING

THIS PASTOR.

I WAS ON MY WAY TO LEAD A

CANDLE LIGHT SERVICE ON

CHRISTMAS EVE.

Reporter: AND NOW THE

GROUP IS ON THE ROAD AGAIN

SETTING UP CHURCHES AND

CAMPUSES.

WHEN PEOPLE WATCH THIS

FILM, THEY GET REALLY UPSET

ABOUT THIS ISSUE.

WITH EDUCATION A LOT OF

TIMES COMES MOTIVATION TO DO

SOMETHING.

Reporter: IT LED ONE

PHYSICIAN TO TRAIN OTHER

DOCTORS TO SPOT VICTIMS.

AND A FLIGHT ATTENDANT BEGAN

A CAMPAIGN FOR HER PEERS.

THE PRODUCTION HAS ALSO

OPENED NEW CONVERSATIONS AND

MINISTRY TIMES IN CHURCHES

WHERE THEY'VE SHOWN IT.

I'VE HAD WOMEN COME UP TO

ME, COUNTLESS WOMEN, I HAVE

BEEN RAPED, I'VE BEEN

SEXUALLY ABUSED, AND I'VE

BEEN A VICTIM OF PORNOGRAPHY

FOR "X" AMOUNT OF YEARS.

AND TO REALIZE IT IS SUCH A

REALITY.

AND HOW MUCH GUILT AND SHAME

PEOPLE ARE CARRYING.

Reporter: WHEN THE

RESEARCH SHOWED THAT

DIFFERENT MEDIA OFTEN DRIVES

A PERSON TO BUY SEX, THEY

REALIZED THE NEED TO CATCH

THE ATTENTION OF

THIS iPOD-DRIVEN

GENERATION.

I THINK OUR GENERATION

HAS A CHOICE IF WE'RE GOING

TO BE CONTRIBUTING TO THE

PROBLEM OR IF WE'RE GOING TO

BE DOING SOMETHING POSITIVE

TO HELP THE SITUATION.

Reporter: HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: AGAIN, THE

FILM IS CALLED "SEX AND

MONEY, A NATIONAL SEARCH FOR

HUMAN WORTH."

YOU CAN FIND OUT WHEN AND

WHERE TO SEE IT BY GOING TO

OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

Pat: THE POLICE REPORT

THAT THE REGENT UNIVERSITY

LAW SCHOOL HAS SET UP A

CENTER TO DEAL WITH THE

LEGAL ASPECTS OF THIS.

WE'RE TRAINING LAWYERS TO GO

INTO COUNTRIES,

PARTICULARLY, BUT IN AMERICA

AS WELL, AND TO TAKE THE

LEGAL STEPS NECESSARY TO

SHUT THESE TRAFFICKERS

DOWN.

IF I HAD MY WAY, AND I DON'T

HAVE MY WAY, BUT IF I HAD MY

WAY, I THINK THERE SHOULD BE

SUMMARY EXECUTIONS OF THREE

TRAGI TRAFFICKERS.

TO THINK YOU CAN BUY A YOUNG

GIRL, 12, 13, 14, BUY HER

AND SELL HER -- NOT SELL HER

ONE TIME FOR SEX, BUT TO

SELL HER AS A SLAVE TO

SOMEBODY ELSE.

WE THOUGHT SLAVERY WAS OVER,

BUT THIS ISN'T.

THIS IS DEMEANING.

I KNOW THERE WAS A HORRIBLE,

HORRIBLE THING TO BLACK

PEOPLE DURING THE TIMES OF

SLAVERY.

BUT I'M NOT SURE THAT THEY

WERE ABUSED SEXUALLY THE WAY

THESE GIRLS ARE.

SOMETIMES THEY HAVE TO

SERVICE 10, 20 MEN A WHITE.

Terry: I THINK THERE

WAS LOTS OF ABUSE DURING

SLAVERY, BUT I THINK THIS

IS, AS YOU SAY, AN EXTREME

SCENARIO.

THEY SAY THAT THE DRUG

BUSINESS, IF YOU'LL CALL IT

THAT, OR TRADE, IS VERY

PROFITABLE, BUT THIS IS EVEN

MORE PROFITABLE.

WHEN YOU SELL SOMEONE A

DRUG, THE DRUG IS TAKEN.

AND THIS IS A GIRL WHO --

YOU'RE PAID ONCE, AND THIS

IS A GIRL WHO WORKS --

Pat: OVER AND OVER AND

OVER.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: SOMETHING INSIDE

YOU REVOLTS AGAINST THIS.

AS I SAY, WE'RE SUPPOSED TO

HAVE GOTTEN RID OF SLAVERY,

BUT THIS IS A WORSE FORM OF

SLAVERY, AND IT IS BEING

DONE RIGHT UNDER OUR NOSES.

AND PEOPLE ARE SO HAPPY.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE

CHRISTMAS -- A PASTOR IS ON

THE WAY TO A CANDLELIGHT

SERVICE, AND HE SEES SOME

HOOKER ON THE STREET, AND HE

PAYS TO HAVE SEX WITH HER.

Terry: THE COMBINATION

OF A SEXUALLY SATURATED

CULTURE, AND THE PRIVACY OF

THE INTERNET IN PEOPLE'S

HOMES IS DEADLY.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THERE IS

SOMETHING WE CAN DO ABOUT

IT.

WE HAVE TO SPEAK UP.

WE HAVE TO LET OUR VOICES BE

HEARD IN THIS.

JUST LIKE PEOPLE HAD TO

STAND UP AGAINST THE SLAVERY

OF AFRICANS, BACK IN THE

TIME WHEN SLAVERY WAS

LEGAL.

AND WE HAVE TO STAND UP

AGAINST THIS WHITE

SLAVERY -- WELL, IT IS NOT

JUST WHITE, IT IS EVERY KIND

OF SLAVERY.

IT HAS GOT TO BE STOPPED.

Reporter: WASHINGTON

MAY BE BROKEN POLITICALLY,

BUT THERE IS HOPE ON A

SPIRITUAL FRONT.

THE CONGRESSIONAL PRAYER

CAUCUS NOW HAS 100 MEMBERS.

THE BIPARTISAN COMMITTEE

SUPPORTS PRAYER.

IT STARTED OUT IN 2005 WITH

A SMALL GROUP OF LAWMAKERS

FROM BOTH PARTIES.

THEY MET WEEKLY IN A ROOM ON

CAPITOL HILL TO PRAY FOR THE

COUNTRY.

PAT, SIX YEARS LATER, THEY

CONTINUE TO MEET AND PRAY.

Terry: WELL, THAT WAS

JUST AN AMAZING STORY OF

ENCOURAGEMENT.

Pat: OUR FRIEND, RANDY

FORBES, IS AT THE HEART OF

THAT.

HE VOTED FOR SOME BILL --

AND THEY SAID, WHAT DO YOU

WANT?

HE SAID I WANT A ROOM IN THE

CAPITOL THAT I CAN HAVE FOR

PRAYER.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY GAVE

HIM.

NOW 100 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

INVOLVED IN THE PRAYER

CAUCUS, AND THEY ARE

AMAZINGLY ACTIVE AND

ORGANIZED.

AND IT'S GROWING.

AND IT CAN BE A MARVELOUS

THING FOR OUR COUNTRY.

Terry: INDEED.

WELL, COMING UP, FROM

BREAKING OUT INTO THE

HALLELUJAH CHORUS, TO

BREAKING MERCHANDISE,

STEALING AND EVEN WORSE.

THE PHENOMENON OF FLASH MOBSICAR

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Reporter: TOMORROW...

HE WANTED ME LIKE A

BARBIE DOL.

DOLL.

I HAD A BREAST

AUGMENTATION.

WOW, YOUR DAD GOT A HIT

RECORD.

HIS FATHER WROTE THE

HITS.

HE TOOK THEM.

I WOKE UP THINKING ABOUT

DRUGS.

I WENT TO SLEEP THINKING

ABOUT DRUGS.

Reporter: GRAMMY

NOMINATED SINGER JOHNNY LEE

HOOKER, TOMORROW.

Pat: HAVE YOU EVER

HEARD ABOUT A FLASH MOB?

FLAB MOB.

WELL, THEY BECAME POPULAR

WHEN VIDEOS SPREAD OF A

LARGE GROUP SUDDENLY SINGING

AND DANCING IN PUBLIC.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THEY

HAD A COMMERCIAL ABOUT

THAT.

Terry: I LOVE THAT

COMMERCIAL.

Pat: HE IS AT GRAND

CENTRAL STATION.

Terry: THAT'S THE FUN

FLASH MOB.

Pat: THERE IS A TREND

OF FLASH MOBS SHOWING UP

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

AND THIS IS ONE CHURCH THAT

IS -- WELL, THEY'RE TRYING

TO BUCK THAT TREND.

AS CHARLENE ISRAEL REPORTS

FROM PHILADELPHIA.

Reporter: THEY HAVE

BECOME A POP CULTURE

PHENOMENON.

GROUPS OF PEOPLE

SPONTANEOUSLY BURSTING OUT

IN SONG OR DANCE.

* HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH *

Reporter: THE

PHENOMENON, HOWEVER,

RECENTLY TOOK A DANGEROUS

TURN.

THIS 7/11 SHOWS DOZENS OF

YOUNG PEOPLE TAKING NUMEROUS

ITEMS FROM SHELVES AND THEN

WALKING OUT WITHOUT PAYING.

INCIDENTS HAVE ALSO BEEN

REPORTED IN CHICAGO,

MILWAUKEE, AND DALLAS.

HERE IN PHILADELPHIA,

PENNSYLVANIA, THERE HAVE

BEEN SEVERAL CASES OF

VIOLENT FLASH MOBS, LIKE

WHAT HAPPENED HERE AT THIS

MACY'S DEPARTMENT STORE.

A GROUP OF 150 TEENS

CONVERGED ON THE STORE, AND

SHOVED SEVERAL COSTUMERS TO

THE FLOOR AND OVERTURNED

FLOOR DISPLAYS.

POLICE SAY MANY OF THE

GROUPS BECOME VIOLENT AS THE

MOB MENTALITY TAKES OVER.

WE HAD ISSUES WHERE

PEOPLE WERE ASSAULTED, WHO

WERE MERELY MINDING THEIR

OWN BUSINESS.

Reporter: PHILLY MADE

HEADLINES AFTER BLASTING

KIDS INVOLVED IN FLASH MOB

KIDS.

IF YOU WANT BLACK FOLKS,

IF YOU WANT WHITE FOLKS,

LATINOS, ASIANS, OR ANYBODY

ELSE, TO RESPECT YOU AND NOT

BE AFRAID WHEN THEY SEE YOU

WALKING DOWN THE STREET,

THEN LEAVE THE INNOCENT

PEOPLE WHO ARE WALKING DOWN

THE STREET, MINDING THEIR

OWN DAMN BUSINESS -- LEAVE

THEM ALONE.

STOP IT.

CUT IT OUT.

WE'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS

NONSENSE.

Reporter: AFTER HIS

TOUGH TALK, THE MAYOR

IMPOSED A STRICT CURFEW FOR

ANYONE UNDER 18.

I THINK IT SHOCKED THE

KIDS A LITTLE BIT AT FIRST.

SOME OF WHOM WHO CONFESSED

THEY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT OR

GENUINELY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: AFTER ALAN

WALLER OF ENON TABERNACLE

CHURCH AGREES WITH THE TOUGH

STANCE.

I THINK HIS WORDS WERE

STRONG.

HIS WORDS WERE PART OF THE

ANSWER.

Reporter: THE OTHER

PART OF THE SOLUTION IS

WHERE THE FAITH COMMUNITY

COMES IN.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT

IS A SPIRITUAL ISSUE.

AND THE MAYOR, ANY MAYOR, IS

NOT THE BOSS OF THE

SPIRITUAL STUFF OF THE

CITY.

Reporter: PASTOR WALLER

SAYS A BIG PART OF THAT

SPIRITUAL STUFF IS YOUNG

PEOPLE ANGRY FOR VARIOUS

REASONS.

THE DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS

THEY'RE HAVING TO LIVE WITH

IN THEIR FAMILIES, IN THEIR

SCHOOLS, AND IN THE

STREETS.

THIS IS AN OUTGROWTH OF

THAT.

Reporter: AUTHORITIES

SAY SOCIAL MEDIA SITES, LIKE

TWITTER AND Facebook,

PLAYED A ROLE IN ORGANIZING

THE FLASH MOB CRIMES.

THEY ALSO HAPPENED IN

ENGLAND, WHERE A

DEMONSTRATION OVER A POLICE

SHOOTING TURNED VIOLENT.

ANGRY YOUTH TORCHED CARS AND

BUILDINGS.

YOU HAVE SEEN INSTANCES

WHERE PEOPLE ARE USING THESE

TOOLS TO ORGANIZE FOR

CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.

Reporter: THIS RAPPER

TEEN WAS ARRESTED AFTER A

FLASH MOB HE ORGANIZED GOT

OUT OF HAND.

THEY TRAIN POLICE AND

ORGANIZATIONS HOW TO USE

SOCIAL NETWORKING TOOLS TO

THEIR ADVANTAGE.

WHAT THE POLICE AND

ORGANIZATIONS WORKING WITH

THE TEENS NEED TO BE AWARE

OF HOW THESE SOCIAL

NETWORKING SITES WORK.

SOME OF THEM YOU HAVE TO

BE A FRIEND TO EVEN GET

INVOLVED IN IT.

WE TRY TO DO THINGS TO

DISGUISE OURSELVES TO GET

INTO THOSE SITES.

Reporter: SOME CITIES

ARE THINKING OF MAKING

LEGISLATION TO MAKE IT

ILLEGAL FOR DISORGANIZED

FLASH MOBS.

WALLER'S CHURCH IS

ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM.

PRIMARILY, WE REACH OUT

TO KIDS THROUGH ATHLETICS.

Reporter: HIS CHURCH

HAS SEVEN FOOTBALL TEAMS,

MADE UP OF KIDS OF ALL AGES

RECRUITED FROM THE

COMMUNITY.

WHEN THEY FINISH

PRACTICE, THEY DON'T HAVE

TIME FOR FLASH MOBS.

THEY'RE TOO TIRED.

Reporter: KIDS SAY

PLAYING THE GAME KEEPS THEM

FOCUSED AND ON THE RIGHT

TRACK.

IT KEEPS ME FROM HANGING

AROUND WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE

AND DOING THE WRONG STUFF.

IT ELIMINATES ME BEING IN MY

NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE I

SHOULDN'T BE.

CHILDREN HAVE TO LEARN

BIBLE VERSES EVERY WE'RE.

IF YOU MESS UP IN SCHOOL,

YOU CANNOT PLAY.

WE HOLD YOU TO A HIGHER

STANDARD BECAUSE WE KNOW IT

IS HARD OUT HERE.

Reporter: THAT'S WHY

AUTHORITIES SAY TEAMING WITH

THE FAITH COMMUNITY SHOULD

BE A WIN FOR EVERYONE,

ESPECIALLY THE KIDS.

WE ALWAYS LOOK TO PARTNER

WITH FAITH COMMUNITY-BASED

ORGANIZATIONS, AND

FAITH-BASED GROUPS.

IT WILL MAKE LIFE FOR US AND

EVERYBODY LIVING HERE

BETTER.

THEY'RE HUNGRY.

THAT'S WHAT ALL OF THIS IS

ABOUT.

THE VIOLENCE -- ALL OF

THAT.

THEY'RE JUST HUNGRY.

AND THEY'RE EATING, RIGHT

NOW, TRASH.

[YELLING]

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: AS I WAS READING

THE BACKGROUND ON THIS

EARLIER TODAY, I THOUGHT

BACK TO WHAT DAVE WILKERSON

HAD TO SAY, BUT IT WAS MANY,

MANY YEARS AGO.

HE HAD THIS PROPHECY ABOUT

YOUNG PEOPLE TAKING OVER THE

STREETS OF THE CITIES AND

REBELLING AND --

Terry: RIOTING AND

FIRES.

Pat: RIOTING AND FIRES,

AND SO FORTH IN THE INNER

CITIES.

AND WE SORT OF SAID, DAVE,

HE'S A GOOD MAN, BUT HE IS A

BIT EXTREME IN THIS.

I THINK WHAT HE HAD TO SAY

IS BEING BORNE OUT.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE IS

THIS SPIRIT OF LAWLESSNESS.

THIS IS TA SATANIC.

PITHEY SAID THESE KIDS ARE

HUNGRY.

WE SHOULD DO SOMETHING TO

FEED THEM.

THE "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PROVIDING FOOD.

ARE THEY HUNGRY FOR VIOLENCE

OR HUNGRY FOR FOOD?

Terry: I THINK BEING

HUNGRY FOR FOOD PROBABLY

MAKES YOU VIOLENT IN YOUR

ACTIONS.

Pat: OF COURSE THEY

DON'T KNOW WHERE THESE

AGENCIES ARE.

LIVING IN A TENEMENT IS

AWFUL.

I LIVED IN NEW YORK CITY AND

SOME BAD SITUATIONS, AND IT

IS CORROSIVE TO THE SOUL.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE DO

ABOUT THAT.

BUT WE HAVE TO BRING JOY, WE

HAVE TO BRING HOPE, AND WE

HAVE TO BRING THE GOSPEL OF

JESUS CHRIST INTO THESE

AREAS.

I IMAGINE SOME OF THESE

INTERNET THINGS --

Terry: IT CAN WORK FOR

GOOD OR IT CAN WORK FOR

BAD.

UP NEXT, FROM ADDICT TO ALL

STAR.

THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF

THE TEXAS

MVP, JOSH

HAMILTON, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Reporter: STILL

AHEAD...HE SURVIVED

BLACKHAWK DOWN.

WE KNEW GOING IN IT WAS A

BAD PART OF TOWN.

Reporter: AND BECAME A

COUNTRY MUSIC STAR.

AMERICAN HERO KENNY THOMAS

SINGS LIVE COMING UP.

Pat: WELL, IT'S

TANTALIZINGLY CLOSE FOR THE

TEXAS RANGERS.

THEY CAN ALMOST TASTE

VICTORY, BUT THEN IT

RAINED.

AND RAIN POSTPONED LAST

NIGHT'S WORLD SERIES GAME.

THE RANGERS NEED JUST ONE

MORE WIN TO CLENCH THE

SERIES.

WHILE TONIGHT MAY BE THE

BIGGEST GAME IN TEXAS

HISTORY, JOSH HAMILTON KNOWS

HE HAS ALREADY WON JUST BY

BEING THERE.

THAT'S BECAUSE A FEW YEARS

AGO, JOSH WAS OUT OF

BASEBALL AND FIGHTING FOR

HIS LIFE.

Reporter: HE HAS BEEN

CALLED A MODERN DAY MICKY

MANTLE.

TEXAS RANGERS' SLUGGER JOSH

HAMILTON IS ONE OF THE MOST

FEARED HITTERS IN THE GAME.

A LEGITIMATE HOMERUN EVERY

TIME HE STEPS TO THE PLATE.

BUT LIKE THE YANKEES'

LEGEND, HIS LIFE OFF THE

FIELD WAS ALMOST SHATTERED.

JUNE 2nd, 1999, THEY

DRAFTED JOSH HAMILTON WITH

THE NUMBER ONE OVERALL

PICK.

HE WAS ON THE FAST-TRACK TO

THE MAJORS UNTIL A CAR

ACCIDENT NEARLY KILLED HIM.

SIDELINED WITH INJURIES,

JOSH PASSED THE TIME HANGING

OUT WITH NEW FRIENDS AT A

TATTOO PARLOR.

I MY FIRST DRINK OF

ALCOHOL AND THE FIRST LINE

OF COCAINE THE SAME NIGHT.

I CAN'T SAY WHY I DID IT

OTHER THAN JUST CURIOUS.

Reporter: HIS CURIOSITY

LED TO ADDICTION.

AND JOSH CHECKED HIMSELF IN

AND OUT OF REHAB EIGHT

TIMES.

JOSH WAS SUSPENDED AND HIS

CAREER WAS IN JEOPARDY.

HE TRIED CLEANING UP HIS ACT

AFTER HE MET KATIE AND THE

TWO GOT MARRIED.

HE TOLD ME HE GOT OUT OF

REHAB AND HE WAS DRUG-FREE,

AND HE WAS AT THAT POINT.

I I WAS THINKING, HE IS

SAYING HE IS DRUG-FREE, AND

HE IS GOING TO STAY THAT

WAY.

I WAS CLEAN FOR FIVE

MONTHS WHEN WE GOT MARRIED.

WE GOT MARRIED IN DECEMBER,

AND I WENT BACK OUT AND

STARTED USING IN JANUARY.

I WAS FLOORED.

I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT.

OUR MARRIAGE WAS SO

COMPLETELY BROKEN, BUT YOU

COULDN'T EVEN SEE A WAY TO

TRY AND START TO FIX IT.

Reporter: JOSH QUIT

TAKING DRUG TESTS AND WAS

SUSPENDED AGAIN FROM

BASEBALL.

HE AND KATIE SEPARATED.

HIS BODY WAS TAKING A

BEATING FROM THE DRUGS AND

HE LOST 50 POUNDS.

THEN ONE NIGHT OUT OF

DESPERATION, HE SHOWED UP ON

HIS GRANDMOTHER'S DOORSTEP

AND ASKED IF SHE WOULD TAKE

HIM IN.

SHE HARDLY RECOGNIZED HER

GRANDSON.

SHE KNEW I WAS USING, AND

SAYING TO ME SHE KNEW WHAT I

WAS DOING.

SHE STARTED CRYING, SAYING

SHE COULDN'T TAKE IT

ANYMORE, SEEING ME LIKE

THAT.

I DON'T KNOW HOW HE WAS

SURVIVING.

HE WAS A SKELETON.

HE DIDN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE THE

SAME PERSON.

AND JUST MENTALLY, YOU KNOW,

I FELT LIKE HE DIDN'T HAVE

ANY GRASP ON REALITY.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

JOSH'S GRANDMOTHER

CHALLENGED HIM TO SURRENDER

HIS LIFE TO GOD.

SO JOSH STARTED READING THE

BIBLE, EVEN THOUGH HIS

ADDICTIONS STILL GNAWED AT

HIM.

I WOULD BE IN THE WORD

AND PRAYING, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN ONE DAY I WOULD GO

THREE OR FOUR DAYS WITHOUT

DOING IT.

AND THEN I WOULD BE BACK

USING.

Reporter: TIMES WERE

TOUGH FOR KATIE.

I WAS COMPLETELY

DESPERATE FOR GOD.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY

LIFE, I WAS DESPERATE FOR

HIM.

I NEEDED HIM, I NEEDED EVERY

BIT OF HIM I COULD GET

BECAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING IN

ME THAT COULD GET ME

THROUGH.

I WOULD BE IN MY CAR

PRAYING, AND I WOULD FEEL

GOD RIGHT THERE, BRINGING ME

SO MUCH PEACE AND JOY IN THE

MIDST OF A COMPLETE

DISASTER.

Reporter: KATIE CALLED

JOSH AND TOLD HIM SHE

BELIEVED SHE HEARD A MESSAGE

FROM GOD.

AND SHE SAID, JOSH, I'VE

BEEN PRAYING ABOUT IT, AND

GOD IS GOING TO LET YOU GO

BACK TO BASEBALL.

SHE SAID, IT'S TRUE, IT'S

BEEN LAID ON MY HEART.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE ABOUT

BASEBALL.

IT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT WHERE

HE BROUGHT YOU FROM AND WHAT

HE BROUGHT YOU THROUGH.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

JOSH LAUGHED AT THE IDEA, IT

ENCOURAGED HIM TO CONTINUE

READING THE BIBLE.

AND KATIE KEPT PRAYING TO

GOD.

AND GOD JUST KEPT SAYING,

WAIT, JUST WAIT.

WHEN YOU'RE GOING THROUGH

TURMOIL, IT IS NOT THE

ANSWER YOU WANT TO HEAR, BUT

HE GAVE ME THE STRENGTH TO

CONTINUE TO WAIT ON HIM.

Reporter: AND SOON

KATIE'S PRAYERS WERE

ANSWERED.

WATCHING KATIE AND HER

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, AND

HER LEANING ON HIM AND

DEPENDING ON HIM WHEN I WAS

DOING THAT TO HER.

ABOUT A MONTH OR TWO LATER,

WE STARTED GETTING BACK

TOGETHER.

Reporter: JOSH AND

KATIE RECONCILED, HE GAVE UP

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL, AND HE

WAS BAPTIZED.

JUST WATCHING THE

TRANSFORMATION THAT GOD HAS

MADE IN JOSH'S LIFE.

IT HAS BEEN SO AWESOME AND

SUCH A GIFT FROM THE LORD,

SEEING WHAT HE HAS DONE IN

HIM.

Reporter: AFTER THREE

YEARS AWAY FROM BASEBALL,

THE LEAGUE REINSTATED JOSH

HAMILTON.

IN SPRING TRAINING 2007, A

SHOCK TO THE BASEBALL

WORLD.

THE CINCINNATI REDS ADDED

JOSH TO THEIR ROSTER.

A YEAR LATER, HE WAS TRADED

TO THE RANGERS AND HIS

CAREER TOOK OFF.

HE IS A FOUR-TIME ALL-STAR

AND THE REIGNING M.V.P., AND

THESE DAYS HE WON'T EVEN

TOUCH ALCOHOL.

WHEN THE RANGERS CLINCHED

THE

PENNANT, HE CELEBRATED

WITH A COOL BOTTLE OF SODA.

THERE

IS NOTHING I DID,

EXCEPT TRY TO MAKE THE RIGHT

CHOICES AND LET GOD TAKE

OVER FROM THERE.

THERE IS ONE SOLID AND

PERMANENT WAY OUT OF IT, AND

THAT'S TO FIND THE LORD,

JESUS CHRIST.

Pat: I WAS DESPERATE

FOR GOD.

I WAS DISPRAYE DIS--

DISPRAYDESPERATE FOR GOD.

THEY WILL SEEK ME AND FIND

ME WHEN THEY SEEK FOR ME

WITH ALL OF THEIR HEART.

I WAS DESPERATE.

I NEEDED MORE OF GOD.

WHEW!

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY.

IF YOU REALLY WANT GOD, HE

IS THERE.

THEY WILL SEEK FOR ME AND

FIND ME.

WHEN THEY SEEK FOR ME WITH

ALL OF THEIR HEART.

DESPERATE FOR GOD.

AND THAT WIFE'S PRAYERS WERE

ANSWERED FOR JOSH.

IMAGINE WHAT A TURNAROUND.

M.V.P., A HUGE STAR.

HE WAS ON THE ASH HEAP.

HE HAD RUINED HIMSELF.

BUT HIS WIFE WAS DESPERATE

FOR GOD.

DESPERATE.

ARE YOU REALLY SERIOUS?

OR ARE YOU JUST PLAYING?

WE PLAY A LOT HERE IN THIS

COUNTRY.

WE SAY, WELL, GOD HELP ME TO

LOSE WEIGHT, BUT NOT RIGHT

NOW.

MAKE ME CHASE, BUT NOT RIGHT

NOW.

LET'S NOT DO IT RIGHT NOW.

LET'S JUST TAKE IT EASY AND

HAVE KIND OF AN EASY LIFE.

AND LET ME SIT IN THAT PEW

ON SUNDAY FOR AN HOUR AND

LISTEN TO SOME SERMON AND

THEN I'LL GO HOME AND I'LL

BE OKAY UNTIL NEXT WEEK.

DESPERATE.

IF YOU WANT WHAT GOD HAS FOR

YOU, THEY WILL SEEK FOR ME

AND FIND ME WHEN THEY SEEK

FOR ME WITH ALL OF THEIR

HEART.

DO YOU WANT GOD?

DO YOU WANT HIS BEST?

DO YOU WANT A MIRACLE?

DO YOU WANT THE

TRANSFORMATION OF YOUR WIFE

OR YOUR HUSBAND?

DO YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO BE

DELIVERED FROM DRUGS?

DO YOU WANT TO SEE SOMETHING

THAT WILL ATTACK YOU OUT OF

FINANCIAL POVERTY?

I WAS READING JAMES, AND IT

SAID IF YOU'RE GOING TO ASK,

ASK IN FAITH.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO ASK, YOU

WILL RECEIVE, BUT YOU WILL

NOT DO IT IF YOU'RE

DOUBLE-MINDED.

SO ARE YOU DESPERATE, AND DO

YOU MEAN BUSINESS?

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY, AND IF

YOU WANT WHAT GOD'S BEST IS,

IF YOU WANT TO BE SET FREE

FROM WHAT IS BINDING YOU,

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW, AND

DON'T BE ASHAMED.

BOW YOUR HEAD WHEREVER YOU

ARE, AND PRAY THESE WORDS:

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

JESUS -- I NEED YOU, LORD.

I WANT YOU LORD.

I CAN'T DO IT MYSELF, LORD.

I NEED YOU.

JESUS, I KNOW THAT YOU'RE

GOD.

I KNOW, JESUS, THAT YOU DIED

ON A CROSS FOR ME.

AND I KNOW YOU ROSE AGAIN

THAT I MIGHT HAVE

EVERLASTING LIFE.

AND, LORD, RIGHT NOW I WANT

MORE OF YOU.

I WANT YOU, LORD.

I ASK YOU, LORD, COME INTO

MY HEART.

SET ME FREE FROM EVERYTHING

THAT WOULD BIND ME.

DELIVER ME FROM SIN.

DELIVER ME FROM THE CLUTCHES

OF SATANIC OPPRESSION.

AND GIVE ME THE JOY OF THE

LORD.

I PRAY NOW, AND I RECEIVE

IT, LORD.

AND I THANK YOU FOR HEARING

MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, I WANT YOU

TO DO SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO CONFESS WHAT

YOU'VE JUST DONE.

I WANT YOU TO TELL

SOMEBODY.

WE'VE GOT ALL OF THESE

PHONES.

PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU.

THEY REALLY LOVE YOU.

THEY'VE HAD THE SAME

EXPERIENCE THAT YOU'VE HAD.

I WANT YOU TO CALL AND TELL

THEM I JUST PRAYED WITH

PAT.

WHEN YOU CALL, I WANT TO

GIVE YOU SOMETHING, IF YOU'D

LIKE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN IT, I'VE GOT A C.D.

IT WILL TELL YOU A WHOLE LOT

EXPRESSED INTO 73 MINUTES.

YOU CAN PUT IT IN YOUR C.D.

PLAYER, AND THERE IT IS.

WE HAVE A LITTLE BOOKLET

THAT HAS 60 SOMETHING

SCRIPTURES THAT YOU CAN READ

AND STUDY AND READ AGAIN.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

AND SAY I PRAYED WITH PAT.

REMEMBER, IF THE LINES ARE

BUSY, SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO

LOVES YOU, AND THEY'LL GET

TO YOU AS SOON AS YOU CAN.

YOU CALL BACK.

YOU MAKE SURE YOU GET THE

CALL THROUGH.

BUT WE'VE GOT PHONES

AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW.

TOLL-FREE NUMBERS,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, MORE ABOUT BASEBALL.

KENNY THOMAS, THE BLACKHAWK

DOWN SINGER IS GOING TO

SINGER LIVE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

SENATE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING

TO REPEAL THE DEFENSIVE

MARRIAGE ACT, THE FEDERAL

LAW THAT DEFINES MARRIAGE AS

A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A MAN

AND A WOMAN.

CALIFORNIA SENATOR DIANNE

FEINSTEIN IS LEADING THAT

REPEAL EFFORT.

THE 10 DEMOCRATS ON THE

SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

SUPPORT IT.

REPEALING DOMA WOULD REQUIRE

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO

RECOGNIZE GAY MARRIAGE IN

STATES WHERE IT IS NOW

LEGAL.

A HUMAN RIGHTS GROUP WARNS

THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY IS

COVERING UP ITS DEATHS.

HAY WANT AN INVESTIGATION

INTO THE OCTOBER 9th

DEATHS OF 29 PEOPLE.

THEY SHOW DEMONSTRATORS

PEACEFULLY DEMONSTRATING

UNTIL POLICE CRUSHED THEM.

BUT OF THE 28 PEOPLE

ARRESTED, NONE ARE

SOLDIERS.

MILITARY RULERS ARE WORKING

TO RESOLVE ISSUES CHRISTIANS

HAVE WITH THE GOVERNMENT.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE RIGHT

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, BEFORE

KENNY THOMAS STRUMMED HIS

GUITAR FOR A LIVING, HE

CARRIED A RIFLE, AND HE

FOUGHT IN ONE OF THE

BEST-KNOWN BATTLES OF MODERN

WARFARE, TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: KENNY THOMAS

IS AN UP-AND-COMING COUNTRY

MUSIC STAR WHO HAS SHARED

THE STAGE WITH THE LIKES OF

VINCE GILL, BRAD PAISLEY,

AND KEITH URBAN BUT HE IS A

FORMER U.S. ARMY RANGER, AND

HE SERVED IN THE MISSION

KNOWN AS BLACK HAWK DOWN.

WE RAIDED INTO A DOWNTOWN

PART OF MOGADISHU.

WE KNOW GOING IN IT WAS A

BAD PART OF TOWN.

BUT WHAT WE DIDN'T KNOW WHEN

WE CAME OUT WE WOULD LOSE 18

GUYS.

Reporter: TODAY KENNY

SHARES A MESSAGE OF HOPE

WITH A GUITAR, NOT A RIFLE.

AND IN HIS BOOK "GET IT ON,"

HE SHARES LESSONS OF COURAGE

AND FAITH FROM THAT FATEFUL

DAY IN SOMALIA.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," KENNY

THOMAS.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: QUITE A STORY.

YOU SAY THE THREE WORDS YOU

HEARD IN SOMALIA CHANGED

YOUR LIFE FOREVER.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

"GET IT ON," THAT WAS THE

CALL TO ACTION.

I WAS WRITING A LETTER HOME

TO MY MOM.

A GUY WALKS OUT OF THE

AIRPLANE HANGAR, AND IT WAS

"GET IT ON," AND JUST LIKE

THAT EVERYTHING CHANGES.

Terry: CREED IS

SOMETHING YOU TOOK A LOT IN

YOUR BOOK, NIGHT GET IT

ON."

THE POINT IS YOU'RE ONLY

GOING TO BE AS GOOD AS YOU

PREPAREARE PREPARED TO BE.

YOU CAN CALL TRAINING WHAT

YOU WANT.

WE CAN CALL IT PRACTICE, YOU

CAN CALL IT BIBLE STUDY, YOU

CAN CALL IT

SELF-IMPROVEMENT.

BUT YOU ARE ONLY GOING TO BE

AS GOOD AS YOU MAKE YOURSELF

BE.

Terry: SO YOU HAVE TO

INVEST YOURSELF FULLY IN

WHAT YOU'RE DRIVING FOR.

ABSOLUTELY.

IT DOESN'T MIRACULOUSLY

COME.

HAVE YOU TO REALLY PRACTICE

HARD.

Terry: YOU'VE BEEN

THROUGH SOME AMAZING THINGS

IN YOUR LIFE, SOME

CHALLENGES, SOME STRUGGLES,

AND SOME TIMES WHEN IT

LOOKED LIKE YOUR DREAM

WASN'T GOING TO HAPPEN.

TALK ABOUT YOUR FAITH AND

HOW THAT SUSTAINED YOU?

I'LL TELL YOU -- HERE IS

MY OPINION ON FAITH: I THINK

THAT THE STRONGER YOUR FAITH

IS, THE MORE AT PEACE YOU

CAN BE WITH LIFE AND WHAT IT

BRINGS TO YOU.

AND WHAT YOU START LEARNING

IS THAT IF YOU GET OFF THE

PATH, HE WILL LET YOU KNOW

PRETTY QUICK.

HE'LL START SLAPPING YOU

AROUND.

AND THAT'S CALLED PAIN.

AND YOU REALIZE YOU NEED TO

GET BACK TO WHERE YOU'RE

SUPPOSED TO BE.

I'M NOT SAYING THAT LIFE

GETS EASIER, BUT I JUST KNOW

THAT THE CHOICES GET SIMPLER

WHEN YOU HAVE A FAITH AND

YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE

SUPPOSED TO BE.

THE HARD PART IS FINDING OUT

AND ACCEPTING WHERE THIS IS

WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE.

BECAUSE THAT PATH WILL BE

MADE FOR YOU.

Terry: EVEN IF IT

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE PATH.

BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO

FIGHT IT.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO SAY,

THIS ISN'T WHAT I WANT.

Terry: HAVE YOU ALWAYS

HAD FAITH?

DID YOU GROW UP IN A

FAITH-BASED FAMILY?

YES.

WE DID.

I WAS IN THE CHOIR, AND

THAT'S WHERE ALL OF THE

MUSIC STARTED.

Terry: THAT'S AWESOME.

WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING THAT YOUR MILITARY

SERVICE TAUGHT YOU.

THAT'S SOME RIGID TRAINING

AND REAL FOCUS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IN THAT

HELPED SHAPE YOUR CHARACTER?

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

YOU PULL OUT OF YOUR

MILITARY TRAINING -- THAT'S

A BIG QUESTION -- BUT MAINLY

WHAT I WOULD TAKE FROM THAT

IS WHAT I TRY TO TELL

EVERYBODY ELSE.

LEADERSHIP IS NOT ABOUT THE

RANK.

BECAUSE THE STORIES I'LL END

UP TELLING YOU ARE FOT GOING

TO BE ABOUT THE GENERALS.

IT WILL BE ABOUT THE PRIVATE

DAVID FLOYDS, WHO IN THE

BEGINNING WEREN'T MUCH.

BUT THEN THROUGH HARD WORK

AND THE GOOD FORTUNE OF THE

PEOPLE THEY WERE AROUND

THEM, THEY BECAME THE

EXAMPLE FOR EVERYBODY TO

FOLLOW.

THAT'S HOW YOU MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, THROUGH YOUR

LEADERSHIP, WHICH THE

EXAMPLE THAT YOU SET.

Terry: YOU MADE A BIG

TRANSITION.

YOU WERE IN THE MILITARY,

AND NOW YOU'RE A WELL-KNOWN

SINGER, PERFORMER.

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

I JUST HANDED IN MY RIFLE

AND PICKED UP MY GUITAR.

I TELL PEOPLE MUSIC IS A

DISEASE.

I DON'T KNOW THAT YOU CAN

EVER GET RID OF IT.

THE BAND STARTED WHEN I WAS

IN THE MILITARY.

Terry: YOU ALMOST TOOK

A JOB IN IRAQ AND DIDN'T DO

THE OTHER.

THAT'S TRUE.

YOU'RE SO WELL-PREPARED.

A REALLY GOOD BUDDY OF

MINE -- THIS IS A NEAT

STORY.

HIS NAME IS JEFF.

AND HE WAS IN THE BATTLE

WITH US.

AND JEFF WENT ON TO BECOME A

CHAPLAIN IN THE MILITARY.

I HAD GONE TO NASHVILLE, AND

THE MUSIC CAREER WASN'T

WORKING OUT THE WAY I WANTED

IT TO, IT WAS TAKING TOO

LONG.

AND HE CALLEDG

BLUE.

AND HE SAID, THANK YOU FOR

WANTING TO GO BACK AND

SERVE, BUT I DON'T KNOW

ANYBODY WHO CAN DO WHAT YOU

DO.

WITH ONE SONG, YOU CAN DO

WHAT I COULD DO IN A YEAR OF

SERMONS.

SO SHORT OF A BURNING BUSH,

I DON'T KNOW HE CAN SPEAK TO

YOU ANY OTHER WAY.

HE WAS A CHAPLAIN.

I CALLED UP AND DIDN'T TAKE

THE JOB IN IRAQ.

AND SIX MONTHS LATER, WE HAD

AN UNEXPECTED HIT.

Terry: YOU'RE GOING TO

SING FOR US A SONG CALLED

"HOLD THE LINE."

WHAT'S THE SIGNIFICANCE OF

THAT?

"HOLD THE LINE."

AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

I'VE GOTTEN TO PLAY THIS.

SO I'M EXCITED.

I HAVE A BUDDY OF MINE FROM

RIGHT HERE IN VIRGINIA, AND

HE WAS RETIRING, AND IN HIS

SPEECH, HE TALKED ABOUT HOW

IT WAS HIS PRIVILEGE OF

HOLDING THE LINE.

WE DON'T ALL GET TO CARRY

RIFLES ANYMORE.

I GET TO CARRY A GUITAR, BUT

YOU CAN STILL COUNT ON ME TO

DO MY PART TO HOLD THE

LINE.

IT IS ABOUT THE PERSON OR

YOUR LEFT AND THE PERSON ON

YOUR RIGHT.

BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T HELP

THEM, THE LINE FALTERS.

AND I GOT MY WRITERS AND I

SAID, I'VE GOT THIS IDEA,

AND BAM, IT HAPPENED.

AND I ALWAYS LIKE WHEN

WRITERS SAY AND GOD SHOWED

UP THAT DAY.

AND I'M LIKE, WHAT DAY IS HE

NOT THERE.

IT'S JUST WE HAPPENED TO

LISTEN.

THAT DAY.

Terry: I WANT TO SAY

THE NAME OF THE BOOK IS "GET

IT ON," AND I'M GOING TO

RELEASE YOU, KENNY, TO GO

EVER AND GET READY.

YOU'RE GOING TO FIND

MESSAGES THAT HAVE TO DO

WITH LEADERSHIP, DEVELOPING

CHARACTER, AND DOING YOUR

PART.

THIS IS BOOK IS AVAILABLE

EVERYWHERE THE BOOKS ARE

SOLD AROUND THE COUNTRY.

BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME,

ENJOY, FOR THE FIRST TIME,

KENNY THOMAS

SINGING "HOLD

THE LINE."

* PUT ON THAT KNUCKLE *

* THEY FALL BACK TO THE

HUDDLE *

* ONE LAST PLACE *

* YOU'VE GOT TO BUY ME SOME

TIME *

* I CAN GET US THERE, BOY,

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO HOLD THE

LINE *

* HOLD THE LINE *

* HOLD THE LINE *

* SHOULDER TO SHOULDER AND

SIDE BY SIDE *

* IF IT YOUR BEST, YEAH *

* AND I'LL GIVE IT MINE *

* WE CAN WIN THIS TOGETHER

IF HOLD THE LINE *

* ELBOWS ON THE TABLE *

* 20 YEARS ON A JOB HE NEVER

THOUGHT WOULD EVER END *

* BUT HIS WIFE SAYS WE'LL

MAKE IT *

*

WE'RE GOING TO BE JUST

FINE *

* WE'VE GOT EACH OTHER, AND

WE'RE GONNA HOLD THE LINE *

* HOLD THE LINE *

* HOLD THE LINE *

* SHOULDER TO SHOULDER AND

SIDE BY SIDE *

* YEAH, YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE

FAITH *

* THE SUN'S GONNA SHINE *

* WE COULD DO THIS TOGETHER

IF WE HOLD THE LINE *

*

* SO HE GETS CHOKED UP WHEN

THE BUGLE PLAYS *

* AND HE REMEMBERS THE

BATTLE LIKE IT WAS JUST

YESTERDAY *

* AND HE KNOWS HE OWES HIS

LIFE TO THE ONES LEFT

BEHIND *

* AND FOR THEIR SACRIFICE,

HE GONNA HOLD THE LINE *

* HOLD THE LINE *

* HOLD THE LINE *

* SHOULDER TO SHOULDER AND

SIDE BY SIDE *

* IN A WORLD GOING CRAZY,

YEAH, AND THESE TROUBLED

TIMES *

* WE'VE GOT TO ALL STAND

TOGETHER *

* WE'VE GOT TO HOLD THE

LINE *

* YEAH, IN A WORLD GOING

CRAZY *

* IN THESE TROUBLED TIMES *

* WE'VE GOT TO ALL STAND

TOGETHER *

* WE'VE GOT TO HOLD THE

LINE *

*

[APPLAUSE AND CHEERS]

Terry: WE ASKED YOU TO

SUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IN OUR

CHATROOM TODAY, AND SOME OF

YOU HAVE.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM KEN

INTO ASKS, "HOW DO I

DISCOVER MY LIFE'S

PURPOSE?"

Pat: DEAR LORD.

Terry: ON YOUR MARK,

GET SET, GO.

Pat: THERE'S A

THEOLOGICAL COURSE ON THAT

ONE.

GOD WILL SHOW YOU LITTLE BY

LITTLE BY LITTLE.

IT WON'T COME OVERNIGHT.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD MADE US

THE WAY WE ARE.

AND THAT WHICH FEELS GOOD TO

US IS WHAT HE MADE US FOR.

SO THE THING, WE HAD KENNY

WHO IS A TERRIFIC SINGER AND

A SONGWRITER.

GOD HAS GIVEN HIM A SKILL.

GOD MAY HAVE MADE YOU A

PAINTER.

HE MAY HAVE GIVE YOU

COMPASSION FOR PEOPLE WHO

ARE SICK.

HE MAY HAVE PREPARED YOU FOR

MEDICINE.

HE MAY HAVE GIVEN YOU AN

ANALYTICAL MIND THAT WOULD

BE FOR SCIENCE OR LAW.

WHEREVER IT IS -- YOU MAY

LIKE FIXING THINGS.

YOU MAY LIKE TO MAKE CARS OR

BE A MECHANIC.

YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE IS

FULFILLING THAT WHICH GOD

MADE YOU FOR.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID, "I'M

REACHING AHEAD TO TRY TO LAY

HOLD THAT WHICH CHRIST HAS

LAID HOLD OF ME."

SO THE APOSTLE PAUL STILL

HASN'T FOUND IT ALL.

Terry: AND JUST BECAUSE

IT GETS TOUGH DOESN'T MEAN

YOU SHOULD STOP.

THE THING YOU SEE EN YOUR

LIFE, HOW GOD USED YOU HERE,

AND IN KENNY'S LIFE -- THERE

ARE TIMES WHEN IT IS NOT

SURE AND CLEAR.

YOU'VE GOT TO PRESS ON AND

PRESS THROUGH.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE

SURE YOU LISTEN TO THE

LORD.

YOU PRAY, YOU SEEK THE LORD,

YOU READ THE BIBLE, AND

CIRCUMSTANCES OPEN UP.

AGAIN, AS TERRY SAID, THERE

MAY BE SOME OBSTACLES.

THE OBSTACLES AREN'T

NECESSARILY TO KEEP YOU FROM

GOD'S PURPOSE.

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO GET

STRONG TO BREAKTHROUGH.

I DO WEIGHTLIFTING, AND IN

ORDER TO BUILD YOUR MUSCLES,

YOU'VE GOT TO STRAIN AGAINST

THEM.

THAT'S THE WHOLE THING,.

Terry: YOU'RE TEARING

THEM DOWN TO BUILD THEM UP.

Pat: YOU PUSH AGAINST A

LOAD OF WEIGHT, AND IT TEARS

THE MUSCLES DOWN AND THEY

REGROW AND GET BIGGER.

Terry: LAURA SAYS, "I

HAD FOUR MISCARRIAGES AND

TWO STILLBIRTHS IN THE LAST

FOUR YEARS.

WILL I EVER MEET THE BABIES

IN HEAVEN?"

Pat: YOU REMEMBER THAT

BOY --

Terry: "HEAVEN IN

REAL."

Pat: AND HE MET SOME

SISTERS THAT WERE

MISCARRIED.

I DON'T KNOW.

THESE ARE LIVES, AND THE

LIVES WOULD TAKE FORM IN

HEAVEN.

SO I THINK THE ANSWER IS

YES.

I DON'T HAVE BIBLICAL

AUTHORITY TO SAY YES, HERE

IT IS, CHAPTER AND VERSE.

Terry: "MY HUSBAND'S

BUSINESS HAS TAKEN A

NOSEDIVE FOUR YEARS AGO AND

HAS STAYED THERE.

HE THINKS SOMEONE HAS PUT A

CURSE ON HIM.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: I DON'T HAVE ANY

IDEA IF SOMEONE PUT A CURSE

ON IT.

IF YOU THINK THERE HAS BEEN

A CURSE, BREAK IT.

SAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I

BREAK THIS CURSE AND

BONDAGE.

IT COULD POSSIBLY BE HE IS

IN THE WRONG LINE OF WORK.

IT IS NOT A CURSE, BUT

YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING, AND

LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

SEEK THE LORD ON THAT ONE.

SEEK HIS WISDOM.

SEEK WHAT HE'LL TELL YOU.

WE CAN ALWAYS BLAME THE

DEVIL.

WELL, WHAT'S WRONG?

IT'S THE DEVIL.

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT.

THE DEVIL PUT A CURSE ON

ME.

THAT'S NOT THE ANSWER.

FIND OUT WHAT GOD'S WILL IS

FOR YOU.

Terry: ALLEN SAYS, "I'M

A SINGLE 32-YEAR-OLD MALE.

I'VE NEVER BEEN MARRIED.

BUT HAVING A FAMILY IS

SOMETHING I LONG FOR.

IS IT WRONG FOR ME TO PRAY

FOR GOD TO SEND ME

SOMEONE?"

Pat: NO.

AND ELIGIBLE MALE IN YOUR

30s.

THERE SHOULD BE WOMEN

CRAWLING ALL OVER YOU.

Terry: BE ENCOURAGED.

Pat: BE ENCOURAGED.

HEAVEN'S SAKE, THERE ARE SO

MANY.

NO, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH ASKING GOD TO SEND YOU

A MATE.

Terry: CRISSIE

SAYS, "IS IT ALREADY TO

PARTICIPATE IN O OCCUPY

WALL STREET?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

NOBODY KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

WHY ARE THEY THERE?

THEY'RE JUST MAD.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO

DEMONSTRATE, DEMONSTRATE FOR

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

DEMONSTRATE TO LIFT THE YOLK

OF OPPRESSION.

DEMONSTRATE TO HELP THOSE

THAT ARE POVERTY STRICKEN.

BUT DON'T JUST GO OUT AND

MESS UP A PARK AND TEAR UP

THINGS.

IT IS FORMLESS AND HAS NO

PURPOSE, BUT IT COULD BE

USED BY RADICALS WHO WANT TO

DESTROY THIS NATION.

TOMORROW, THE SON OF A MUSIC

LEGEND IN A FIGHT FOR HIS

LIFE.

THE STORY OF JOHN LEE

HOOKER, JR.

AND TODAY WE LEAVE WITH

THESE WORDS FROM JAMES:

"BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO

ENDURES TEMPTATION.

HE WILL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF

LIFE."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

AND WE'LL BE BACK

TOMORROW -- SOMEBODY WILL.

Reporter: TOMORROW...

HE WANTED ME TO LOOK LIKE

A BARBIE DOLL.

I HAD A BREAST

AUGMENTATION.

Reporter: BUT THAT'S

NOT ALL HER HUSBAND WANTED.

HE TOLD ME, YOU COULD BE

AN EXOTIC DANCER.

Reporter: PLUS?

WOW, YOUR DAD GOT A HIT

RECORD.

Reporter: HIS FATHER

WROTE THE HITS AND HE TOOK

THEM.

I WOKE UP THINKING ABOUT

DRUGS, AND I WENT TO SLEEP

THINKING ABOUT DRUGS.

Reporter:

GRAMMY-NOMINATED SINGER

JOHNNY LEE HOOKER, JR.,

TOMORROW.
