The 700 Club - March 8, 2012

Fatima, an Iranian native, never gave her Muslim faith too much thought, until she began asking questions about God. Plus, Lincoln and Lynette Dent fought constantly until one night changed everything. Read Transcript


HE REMINDED ME TO BE

CAREFUL.

Reporter: INSIDE NORTH

KOREA.

WE COULDN'T ALLOW ANYONE

TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON.

Reporter: ONE FAMILY

RISKS THEIR LIVES.

HE WARNED US OF THE PRICE

WE WOULD ONE DAY PAY FOR

FAITH.

Reporter: DO YOU THINK

YOUR FATHER IS ALIVE TODAY?

NO.

THEY NEVER MAKE IT OUT

ALIVE.

*

Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

MAN, I'VE GOT A SHOCKING

THING FOR YOU TODAY -- OR

MAYBE YOU'RE NOT SHOCKED

ANYMORE.

THE I.R.S. IS TARGETING THE

TEA PARTY.

WE HAVE EVIDENCE OF AT LEAST

15 INVESTIGATIONS, ASKING

FOR INFORMATION THAT THEY'RE

NOT ENTITLED TO.

AND ISN'T THAT SURPRISING

THAT IT HAPPENED DURING AN

ELECTION YEAR?

DO YOU SUPPOSE THE WHITE

HOUSE IS BEHIND IT?

I'M SURE THEY WOULD DENY IT

IF ASKED.

TERRY?

Terry: GATHERING

INFORMATION, CONSERVATIVES

SAY, IS GOING TOO FAR, AND

THEY'RE UPSET ABOUT IT.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE

PARTY.

Reporter: THE TEA PARTY

HAS SHAKEN UP POLITICS WITH

ITS RELENTLESS PUSH FOR

FINANCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY.

THE GOVERNMENT IS

OVERREACHING, AND IT IS LIKE

A POWER GRAB, AND IT HAS GOT

TO BE STOPPED.

Reporter: BUT THEY'VE

BEEN CRITICIZED BY

LIBERALS.

AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED,

THE TEA PARTY CAN GO

STRAIGHT TO (BLEEP).

Reporter: AND NOW

THEY'RE ENLISTING THE AID OF

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE.

THE ACLJ IS REPRESENTING

ABOUT 20 GROUPS AGAINST THE

I.R.S., IN WHAT THEY BELIEVE

IS AN ATTEMPT TO INTIMIDATE

AND SILENCE THE TEA PARTY

DURING AN ELECTION YEAR.

THEY ARE SENDING MESSAGES TO

DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN

ORGANIZATIONS, LOOKING TO

SEE IF FUNDS ARE USED

PROPERLY UNDER TAX LAW.

JAY SECULO SAYS MANY OF THE

QUESTIONS ASKED BY THE

I.R.S. FALL WELL OUTSIDE ITS

AUTHORITY.

THE QUESTIONNAIRE ASKS

ORGANIZATIONS TO PROVIDE ALL

INFORMATION ABOUT

LEGISLATIVE BODIES, AND

DESCRIBE THE RELATIONSHIP OF

ANY CANDIDATE TO REPUBLIC

OFFICE.

THE ACLJ IS PREPARED TO TAKE

THEM TO COURT.

THE 501 C-4 TAX EXEMPT

ORGANIZATIONS OF DEMOCRATS

HAVE RAISED CONSIDERABLY

LESS MONEY THAN REPUBLICANS

ORGANIZATIONS IN THE SAME

CATEGORY.

THE "NEW YORK TIMES" REPORTS

THAT DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN

PRESSING THE I.R.S. TO

INVESTIGATE THE TAX ISSUE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS SHOCKING.

YOU KNOW, NIXON WAS

CRITICIZED TERRIBLY FOR

USING THE I.R.S. TO GO AFTER

HIS ENEMIES.

COULD THIS BE HAPPENING NOW?

JAY SECULO, GENERAL COUNSEL

FOR THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW OF JUSTICE, IS WITH US.

JAY, WHAT IS THE I.R.S.

DOING WITH THESE TEA PARTY

GROUPS?

WHAT THEY'RE DOING, PAT,

IS VIOLATING THE FIRST

AMEND.

THEY'RE ASKING FOR THE

MEMBERSHIP LISTS, AND

THEY'RE ASKING FOR DIRECT

AND INDIRECT COMMUNICATIONS

TO PEOPLE THAT ARE STATE

LEGISLATORS OR FEDERAL

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

THEY WANT A CURRICULUM VITAE

FOR THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

THEY WANT A RESUME OF THEIR

BOARD MEMBERS.

THEY WANT A DETAILED LISTING

OF HOW YOU DETERMINE

MEMBERS.

AND WHAT ORGANIZATIONS THOSE

MEMBERS MAY ALSO BE MEMBERS

OF.

IT SOUNDS LIKE

McCARTHY-ISM.

THIS LETTER -- SOME OF THE

QUESTIONS ASKED ARE

LEGITIMATE.

THOSE WE WILL ANSWER, ON

BEHALF OF OUR CLIENTS.

THOSE THAT ARE NOT

LEGITIMATE WILL BE GETTING A

RESPONSE THAT SAYS, "THIS

QUESTION IS PROTECTED BY THE

FIRST AMENDMENT."

THIS CASES THAT SUPPORT OUR

POSITION, PAT, DATE BACK TO

THE 1950s.

IT IS THE NAACP LINE OF

QUESTIONS.

THEY WANTED THE SAME THING:

MEMBERSHIP LISTS, AND WHO

DID YOU COMMUNICATE WITH,

AND THE SUPREME COURT

UNANIMOUSLY SAID THAT IS

INTIMIDATION AND VIOLATES

THE FIRST AMENDMENT.

Pat: THESE PEOPLE DON'T

MAKE ANY MONEY, SO THE TAX

EXEMPTION IS MEANINGLESS.

BUT C-4 IS A LOBBYING GROUP,

AND THEY'RE GOING TO SAY,

TELL US WHICH LEGISLATORS

YOU TALKED TO IS

RIDICULOUS.

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT,

PAT.

YOU'VE GOT TO LOOK AT THE

TIMING OF THIS.

THIS APPLICATIONS FOR

EXEMPTION WERE SENT SOME OF

THEM AS LONG AS TWO YEARS

AGO.

MOST OF THOSE GROUPS HEARD

NOTHING.

A WEEK BEFORE SUPER TUESDAY,

LETTERS LIKE THIS FROM THE

I.R.S. STARTS GOING ALL

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

AND THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF

THEM.

IT TELLS YOU IT IS A

COORDINATED ISSUE, AND WE

ARE GOING TO DEMAND THEY GET

THE RECOGNITION THEY ARE

ENTITLED TO UNDER THE LAW.

Pat: JAY, HAVE YOU GOT

THE FINGERPRINTS OF THE

WHITE HOUSE ON ANY OF THIS?

WELL, YOU CAN'T TELL IT

IS THE WHITE HOUSE.

THE TIMING OF THIS THING, AS

YOU SAID EARLIER, PAT, IS

JUST SO BIZARRE.

THAT'S WHY I WANT OVERSIGHT

HEARINGS FROM DARY DARRELL

ISSA'S COMMITTEE, BECAUSE WE

WANT TO KNOW WHO CAME UP

WITH THIS?

WHY DID YOU HAVE THESE

APPLICATIONS SITTING FOR

YEARS, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN

YOU DECIDE, RIGHT DURING AN

ELECTION, THAT YOU'RE GOING

TO SEND OUT THESE LETTERS.

WHICH IS PRETTY

INTIMIDATING.

TO COMPLY WITH ONE OF THESE

LETTERS COULD TAKE UPWARDS

OF 7,000 PIECES OF PAPER.

7,000 PIECE OF PAPER!

SO THIS IS AN INTIMIDATION

TECHNIQUE.

WHAT WE HOPE TO FIND OUT

THROUGH THE HOUSE AND SENATE

IS EXACTLY WHO IS BEHIND

THIS.

IF THE WHITE HOUSE IS BEHIND

IT, IT IS POLITICAL

INTIMIDATION, PURE AND

SIMPLE.

Pat: IT IS SHOCKING.

IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE

CONSTITUTION.

I WOULD HOPE THAT THE

SO-CALLED LIBERAL MEDIA

WOULD GET ON THIS.

THIS IS A TREMENDOUSLY

IMPORTANT STORY.

JAY, YOU SAY ISSA IS ON IT.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER

CONGRESSMEN OR CONGRESSWOMEN

ARE ON IT?

BILL FLEURY IS FROM

TEXAS, WHO'S DISTRICT COVERS

TEXAS.

WACO, TEXAS, GOT ONE OF THE

LETTERS, AND HE IS KIND OF

LEADING THE HOUSE SIDE OF

THIS.

THE "NEW YORK TIMES" RAN

WITH THIS STORY YESTERDAY,

AND A.P. DID SOMETHING ON

BEFORE WE GOT INVOLVED IN

IT.

I THINK THE HILLS IS DOING

SOMETHING TODAY.

LET ME TAKE IT A STEP

FURTHER.

I HAVEN'T HEARD A PEEP --

THEY KEEP SAYING SOME

LIBERAL GROUPS HAVE GOTTEN

LETTERS.

WHERE ARE THEY?

ARE THEY GOING TO JUST LET

THEIR AMENDMENT RIGHTS GO

BY?

MAYBE ONE DID GET ONE, BUT

NOT 500.

Pat: YOU SAID 500 ARE

BEING TARGETED?

IS THAT THE NUMBER?

WELL, PAT, IT COULD EVEN

BE HIGHER.

LET ME TELL YOU WHAT WE DO

KNOW.

ONE AGENT TOLD ONE OF OUR

CLIENTS SHE HAD 50 OF THESE

SITTING ON HER DESK.

THAT IS ONE AGENT.

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF TEA

PARTY GROUPS.

AND WE UNDERSTAND 500 OR 600

LETTERLETTERS COULD HAVE

BEEN SENT.

PEOPLE ARE CONTACTING US

EVERY DAY AT THE ACLA, AND

WE'RE GLAD TO DO IT.

CERTAIN QUESTIONS ARE

LEGITIMATE, AND ONES

AREN'T.

THEY WOULD HAVE TO GET A

SUMMONS IN DISTRICT TO

COMPEL DISCLOSURE.

I AM READY FOR THAT

CHALLENGE.

Pat: HOW DO YOU PUNISH

SOMEBODY WHO HAS DONE

SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE

CONSTITUTION, AND OVERREACH

OF THEIR AUTHORITY.

HOW COULD YOU REIN THEM IN?

IS THERE SOMETHING YOU CAN

DO IN COURT TO STOP IT?

WE'LL SEND OUR RESPONSE

IN, WHICH WILL RAISE THE

FIRST AMENDMENT ISSUE.

IF THE GOVERNMENT ISSUES A

SUMMONS, SAYING WE WANT

THOSE MEMBERSHIP LISTS, WE

MAY GO INTO FEDERAL COURT.

THEY MAY GO INTO FEDERAL

COURT SEEKING AN

ENFORCEMENT, AND WE WILL GO

INTO THE FEDERAL COURT

FIGHTING IT.

THAT'S HOW THE NAACP CASES

GOT THERE.

THERE WAS A WHOLE STRING

WITH SIX OF THOSE CASES IN

THE 1960s AND EARLY

'50s.

THE WAY YOU GET TO THEM IS

YOU TAKE IT AND DUKE IT OUT

IN FEDERAL COURT, WHERE THEYC0TñE-HAV

YOUR LETTERS, WRITE, E-MAIL,

CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN, YOUR

SENATOR, AND SAY, YOU KNOW,

WOULD YOU INVESTIGATE THE

TREATMENT OF THE TEA PARTY

GROUP AROUND THE COUNTRY BY

THE I.R.S.

IT IS INTIMIDATION.

IT IS WRONG.

IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

SEIZE THEIR AUTHORITY.

AND IT HARKENS BACK TO THE

DAYS OF WATERGATE, AND WE

JUST CAN'T HAVE THAT.

HERE IS THE NUMBER TO CALL.

202-224-3121.

THAT'S THE UNITED STATES

CAPITOL.

CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND

SAY, LISTEN, I'VE HEARD THE

TEA PARTY IS TARGETING --

EXCUSE ME, THE I.R.S. IS

TARGETING SEVERAL HUNDRED

TEA PARTY ORGANIZATIONS, AND

WE WANT YOU TO INVESTIGATE,

AND IF NEED BE, HOLD

HEARINGS TO EXPOSE THIS TO

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THE NUMBER, ONE MORE TIME --

IT'S THE UNITED STATES

CAPITOL, 202-224-3121.

AND GET ON THE PHONE, OR GET

AN E-MAIL, BUT FLOOD

CONGRESS WITH YOUR OUTRAGE

AT THIS PARTICULAR

OVEREXTENSION, OVERREACH OF

A FEDERAL AGENCY.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF OUR

TOP STORIES FROM THE CBN

NEWS ROOMMENT.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA CALLS OIL THE FUEL OF

THE PAST.

HE SAYS IT IS TIME FOR THE

U.S. TO MOVE AWAY FROM ITS

DEPENDENCY ON OIL AND

EXPLORE NEW POSSIBILITIES.

President Obama: WE'VE

GOT TO DEVELOP EVERY SOURCE

OF AMERICAN ENERGY.

NOT JUST OIL AND GAS, BUT

WIND POWER, SOLAR POWER,

NUCLEAR POWER, AND

BIOFUELS.

Reporter: THE PRESIDENT

CALLS ON CONGRESS TO PROVIDE

GRANT MONEY.

THE ADMINISTRATION'S GOAL IS

TO MAKE ELECTRIC VEHICLES AS

AFFORDABLE AND CONVENIENT AS

GAS-POWERED CARS BY 2020.

BUT SOME CRITICS QUESTION

THAT GOAL.

POOR SALES RECENTLY LED G.M.

TO SUSPEND PRODUCTION OF ITS

ELECTRIC CAR, THE CHEVY

VOLT, PAT.

Pat: I WONDER WHAT

PLANET THE PRESIDENT IN

HABITS.

WIND POWER -- CAN YOU

IMAGINE HOW MANY WINDMILLS

YOU WOULD HAVE TO PUT UP IN

THE COUNTRY.

YOU'D HAVE TO KILL EVERY

BIRD IN THE AIR WITH THOSE

THINGS FLIPPING AROUND, AND

IT WOULDN'T GIVE YOU ENOUGH

POWER TO LIGHT THE

LIGHTBULBS OF A SMALL TOWN.

THINK OF SALINDRA, THE WASTE

OF ALMOST A BILLION DOLLARS

OF GOVERNMENT MONEY WENT

INTO THAT FAILED THING.

THE TRUTH IS WE'VE GOT AN AB

BU ABUNDANCE OF NATURAL

GAS.

AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IS

TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO USE

THAT NATURAL GAS TO POWER

CARS AND THEN LATER TRUCKS.

IT IS AVAILABLE TO US.

OF COURSE, THE MAJOR

RESOURCE WE HAVE IS OIL,

CRUDE OIL.

I KNOW IT IS NICE TO TALK

ABOUT GETTING AWAY FROM IT,

BUT YOU CAN'T DO IT FOR THE

NEXT 20 OR 30 YEARS.

SO IT IS TIME THE GOVERNMENT

GETS REAL.

I'M ALL FOR NUCLEAR, BUT

I'LL TELL YOU, PEOPLE ARE SO

SCARED AFTER WHAT HAPPENED

WITH THAT FUKUSHIMA PLANT IN

JAPAN, THAT THEY'RE NOT SO

KEEN ON HAVING PLANTS.

AND THE GREENS WOULD FIGHT

LIKE TIGERS TO KEEP ANYMORE

NUCLEAR PLANTS PARTICULAR

BEING BUILT.

I MIGHT ADD, WE HAVEN'T HAD

A NEW OIL REFINERY IN

AMERICA SINCE THE DAYS OF

JIMMY CARTER.

THE ENVIRONMENTALISTS HAVE

SHUT THEM DOWN, SHUT THEM

DOWN, SHUT THEM DOWN.

WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

HE IS JUST FLAPPING HIS

LIPS.

HE IS NOT TALKING REALITY.

LEE?

Reporter: NEW SATELLITE

IMAGES SHOW IRAN MAY HAVE

TESTED TRIGGERS FOR NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

THE IMAGES SHOW IRANIAN

TRUCKS AND EARTH MOVERS

TRYING TO CLEAN UP WHAT

APPEARS TO BE RADIOACTIVE

WARMEST.

THEY SAY THE ONLY REASON FOR

THAT TYPE OF TEST IS TO

DEVELOP NUCLEAR ARMS.

IRAN JUST AGREED TO ALLOW

SANCTIONS, BUT ISRAEL WARNED

IT MAY HAVE PREEMPTIVE

STRIKES TO KEEP IT FROM

BUILDING A NUCLEAR WEAPON.

EARTH IS TAKING THE LARGEST

HIT FROM A FIRESTORM IN FIVE

YEARS.

IT COULD DISRUPT POWER

GRIDS, PHONE SERVICE, AND

EVEN AIRLINE FLIGHTS.

IT ALL SOUNDS OMINOUS, BUT

THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC.

WE'RE ABLE TO TELL YOU,

YES, THIS IS COMING TOWARDS

US.

BEWARE.

KEEP WATCHING.

DON'T GET HYSTERICAL.

Reporter: PROBLEMS FROM

THE STORM COULD LAST FOR THE

NEXT 24 HOURS, BUT THE SOLAR

FLARES WILL ALSO PRODUCE

BEAUTIFUL AURORAS, AND I HAD

A CHANCE TO SEE THAT ABOUT

20 YEARS AGO IN ICELAND, AND

IT IS GORGEOUS.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

THIS WILL KEEP US FROM

GETTING SATELLITE

TELEVISION, AND IT MAY MEAN

THAT AIRPLANES MAY WANDER

AROUND IN THE SKY WITHOUT

APPROPRIATE NAVIGATION.

Terry: THAT WOULD BE A

LITTLE MORE SERIOUS THAN THE

TELEVISION.

Pat: THE MAYAN SAY THIS

IS THE YEAR THERE WILL BE AN

ALIGNMENT OF THE PLANETS

FROM THE DEPTH OF OUR

GALAXY, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT

IS GOING TO HAPPEN THEN.

PEOPLE HAVE TALKED TO SOME

OF THE MAYANS, AND WE DON'T

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

THEY DECIDED TO STOP

COUNTING AFTER THAT YEAR.

Terry: AN INTERESTING

YEAR, NO DOUBT.

Pat: THIS IS A BIG

DEAL.

IT IS GOING TO HIT US, AND

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS

GOING TO DO.

I HOPE WE'LL KEEP ON

BROADCASTING ON THIS

PARTICULAR CHANNEL.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

FATHER IS SNATCHED AWAY BY

THE NORTH KOREAN POLICE AND

THEN EXECUTED.

HEAR HIS CRIME IN A STORY

NEVER TOLD BEFORE NOW.

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: CONGRESSMAN KING

OF NEW YORK CALLED IT A

CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE.

CRIME FAMILY POSING AS A

NATION.

AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT IT

AMOUNTS TO.

IT IS A CRIMINAL

ENTERPRISE.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST -- IT

IS THE MOST REPRESSIVE

REGIME ON EARTH.

IT IS HIDEOUS WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

VERY FEW PEOPLE KIDNAP TO

TELL ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON

IN NORTH KOREA.

BUT NOW YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE

VIDEO THAT SHOWS THE

EXECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IN

THAT AWFUL COUNTRY.

YOU'LL ALSO MEET A WOMAN WHO

WAS A LOOKOUT FOR AN

UNDERGROUND CHURCH IN NORTH

KOREA.

FORTUNATELY, SHE MADE IT OUT

OF THAT COUNTRY.

WE HAVE HER HORROWING STORY,

THAT HAS NEVER BEEN TOLD,

UNTIL NOW ON THIS PROGRAM.

HERE IS GEORGE THOMAS

REPORTING FROM SOUTH KOREA.

Reporter: HER NAME IS

KIM UE JIN, AGED 31.

SHE WAS BORN IN PYEONGCHANG,

NORTH KOREA.

HER TESTIMONY IS RARE.

THE C.I.A. ESTIMATES SOME

24 MILLION LIVE IN THE

COMMUNIST COUNTRY, AND ABOUT

2% ARE CHRISTIANS.

JUST A HANDFUL OF THEM HAVE

ESCAPED FROM THE BUDDHA

REGIME AND LIVED TO TELL

THEIR STORY.

KIM IS ONE OF THEM.

GROWING UP I WAS TOLD BY

THE AUTHORITIES THAT THERE

WAS NO GOD IN THIS WORLD.

WE WERE ORDERED, INSTEAD, TO

WORSHIP KIM JONG-IL, THE

LEADERS OF THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: FREEDOM IS

GUARANTEED UNDER NORTH

KOREA'S CONSTITUTION, BUT IT

IS NEVER ENCOURAGED.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE BEING A

BELIEVER IN NORTH KOREA.

WE MET EVERY SATURDAY

EVENING.

OUR FAMILY MET IN THE BACK

ROOM OF OUR SMALL

APARTMENT.

WE HAD TO BE VERY QUIET.

WE WHISPERED WHEN WE SANG OR

READ THE BIBLE.

WE OFTEN COVERED OUR HEAD.

Reporter: GROWING UP,

SHE HEARD STORIES ABOUT HOW

HER CITY, PYEONGCHANG, WAS

ONCE KNOWN AS THE JERUSALEM

OF THE EAST.

IN 1935, 13% WAS CHRISTIAN.

HALF A CENTURY LATER, KIM'S

FAITH MADE HER A TARGET.

Reporter: MY PARENTS

OFTEN ASKED ME TO STAY

OUTSIDE THE APARTMENT ON

SATURDAYS, TO MAKE SURE NO

ONE WAS COMING WHILE THE

FAMILY PRAYED INSIDE.

Reporter: OVER TIME,

THE MEETINGS GREW TO INCLUDE

A FEW FRIENDS AND EXTENDED

FAMILY.

Reporter: WE HAD ONE

BIBLE IN THE HOUSE.

MY GRANDMOTHER, WHO WAS A

BELIEVER FROM THE JAPANESE

IMPERIAL TIMES, HAD A

CHINESE BIBLE.

SHE TRANSLATED A BIBLE BY

HAND IN KOREAN LANGUAGE ON

PIECES OF PAPER.

THAT'S HOW WE READ THE

BIBLE.

WE FOUND STRENGTH IN THOSE

PAGES.

Reporter: BUT SOON THE

AUTHORITIES DISCOVERED THAT

HER FATHER WAS A SECRET

BELIEVER.

MY FATHER WAS A TAILER IN

TOWN, AND WE BELIEVE THEY

PLANTED LISTENING DEVICES IN

HIS SHOP AND ON HIS

CLOTHES.

Reporter: IN 1985,

MS. KIM'S FATHER WAS

ARRESTED, ALONG WITH AN

UNCLE.

BOTH MEN PROBABLY ENDED UP

IN ONE OF THE SIX LABOR

CAMPS IN NORTH KOREA.

DO YOU REMEMBER THAT DAY?

THE DAY MY FATHER WAS

ARRESTED, I WAS AT SCHOOL,

BUT I'LL NEVER FORGET THAT

DAY.

HE HUGGED ME BEFORE I LEFT

FOR SCHOOL.

AND LIKE EVERY OTHER DAY, HE

REMINDED ME TO BE CAREFUL.

EVERY MORNING AT THE

BREAKFAST TABLE HE WOULD

TELL US THAT ONE DAY THE

GOVERNMENT WILL COME AND

ARREST US FOR BEING

CHRISTIANS.

HE WARNED US OF THE PRICE WE

WOULD SOME DAY PAY FOR OUR

FAITH.

I REMEMBER HIM SAYING OFTEN,

EVEN IF I FACE DEATH, I WILL

FOLLOW JESUS.

Reporter: SOME 200,000

ARE BEING HELD IN PRISON.

AN ESTIMATED 30,000 OF THEM

ARE CHRISTIANS.

THE REGIME IS ROUTINELY

CITED FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

VIOLATIONS.

YEJAY IS A PROFESSOR OF LAW

IN SOUTH KOREA.

THEY WILL TREAT US LIKE

CRIMINALS, LIKE TERRORISTS,

AND THEY'RE PRO PROSECUTED

BASED ON NATIONAL SECURITY

CRIME IN NORTH KOREA.

Reporter: THIS VIDEO,

OBTAINED BY CBN NEWS,

REPORTEDLY SHOWS THE

EXECUTION OF NORTH KOREAN

CHRISTIANS.

DO YOU THINK THAT YOUR

FATHER IS ALIVE TODAY?

NO.

EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN GOVERNMENT AGENTS

ARREST CHRISTIANS IN NORTH

KOREA.

THEY NEVER MAKE IT OUT

ALIVE.

I KNOW MY FATHER IS IN

HEAVEN.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY: AND

HEAVEN, AND HE IS PRAYING

FOR NORTH KOREA AND MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: KIM'S MOTHER,

GRANDMOTHER, AND SIBLINGS

MANAGED TO ESCAPE THAT DAY

TO THE MOUNTAINS.

IN 2005, WITH THE HELP OF A

CHINESE PASTOR, SHE CROWD

THE TUMAN RIVER AND DEFECTED

TO CHINA.

HER FAMILY FOLLOWED MONTHS

LATER.

IT WAS A DIFFICULT

DECISION, BECAUSE I KNEW IF

I GOT CAUGHT, WE WOULD BE

SENT TO PRISON.

Reporter: TODAY SHE IS

MARRIED AND HAS A BABY BOY.

I AM VERY PROUD OF WHAT

SHE DID.

HER FAMILY HAS GONE THROUGH

A LOT OVER THE YEARS.

SHE IS A HERO IN MY EYES.

Reporter: KIM IS QUICK

TO BRUSH ASIDE THOSE

COMPLIMENTS, INSTEAD GIVING

HONOR TO THE MAN WHO LAID

DOWN HIS LIFE.

I GREW UP IN A LAND WHERE

THEY SAID THERE WAS NO GOD.

BUT MY FATHER TOLD ME

OTHERWISE.

HE LOVED CHRIST, AND FOR

THAT HE DIED.

Reporter: SHE HAS A

DREAM TO ONE DAY GO BACK TO

PYEONGCHANG AND SHARE ABOUT

THIS LOVE WITH THE PEOPLE OF

NORTH KOREA.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA.

Pat: THAT IS THE MOST

HIDEOUSLY, REPRESSIVE

REGIME.

AND THE AMAZING THING IS IT

HAPPENED UNDER OUR NOSE.

THE RUSSIANS CAME IN, AND

THEY TOOK A LIEUTENANT

COLONEL, A MAN WHO HAD HAD

BEEN A LIEUTENANT COLONEL,

AND SAID YOU'RE NOW IN

CHARGE.

THAT WAS KIM JONG-IL.

KIM JON-SUN AND THEN HIS

SON TOOK OVER, KIM JONG-IL.

AND NOW WHAT IS IT, KIM

JONG-UN IS THE NEW MAN, IN

HIS 20s.

AND THE REGIME TAKES NORMAL

MUS AMOUNT ENORMOUS AMOUNTS

OF MONEY TO FEED THE ARMY

AND THE POLITICAL CLASS.

KIM JONG-IL USED TO LIKE

WESTERN PROSTITUTES AND

COGNAC AND ALL THAT TYPE OF

THING.

AND THE PEOPLE WERE

STARVING.

SO THE UNITED STATES HAS

AGREED TO SUPPLY SOMETHING

IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF

250,000 TONS OF GRAIN TO

THEM IN EXCHANGE FOR A

PROMISE THEY'RE GOING TO

START SUSPENDING SOME OF

THEIR NUCLEAR ACTIVITY.

THAT'S A GAME THEY'VE BEEN

PLAYING ON AND ON AND ON.

THEY MAKE A A PROMISE, AND

WE GIVE SOMETHING, AND THEY

BREAK THE PROMISE.

AND WE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT

THEM.

WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IS FOR

THE SOUTH KOREANS TO OPEN

THEIR BORDERS FREELY, AND

LET THE NORTH KOREANS COME

IN.

IF THEY DID, THAT REGIME

WOULD COLLAPSE.

BUT THE SOUTH KOREANS DON'T

WANT TO DO IT BECAUSE

THEY'RE AFRAID OF EITHER

MILITARY REPRISAL FROM THE

NORTH, OR ELSE THEY'RE

AFRAID THEY CAN'T

ACCOMMODATE ALL OF THE

PEOPLE FROM THE NORTH WHO

WOULD WANT TO COME IN.

SO INSTEAD OF COMING TO THE

SOUTH WHERE THEY SHOULD

COME, THEY SNEAK ACROSS THE

RIVER INTO CHINA.

AND THEY'RE SET UPON THERE.

THE WOMEN ARE SOMETIMES MADE

INTO SEX SLAVES.

THEY'RE REPATRIATED BACK TO

NORTH KOREA.

IT IS A HIDEOUS MESS.

AND SO THERE IS A BOOK

CALLED "THE AQUARIUMS OF

PYEONGCHANG."

IT IS SO MOVING, BECAUSE IT

WAS WRITTEN BY SOMETHING WHO

WENT THROUGH IT.

IF YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON

A COPY OF IT, IT WILL STIR

YOUR HEART.

Terry: IF YOU'VE EVER

SEEN PICTURES OF THE PEOPLE

WHO STARVE OUT IN THE RURAL

AREAS, IT DEFIES

COMPREHENSION, REALLY.

Pat: IT IS TERRIBLE.

THAT LITTLE DICTATOR IS

GOING AROUND IN HIS TAILORED

SUITS.

AND WOMEN, COGNAC, FINE

WINE, LUXURIOUS

ACCOMODATIONS, EVERYTHING HE

NEEDS.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

Pat: AND THEY'RE ALL

STARVING.

IT'S AWFUL.

Terry: IT REALLY IS.

FROM ONE REPRESSIVE REGIME

TO ANOTHER, UP NEXT, A YOUNG

IRANIAN GIRL COMMITS A

CARDINAL SIN IN THE ISLAMIC

FAITH: QUESTIONING ALLAH.

I WOULD BE SPENDING HOURS

AND HOURS AND HOURS THINKING

WHAT WOULD GOD LOOK LIKE.

WHERE WOULD HE BE?

Terry: FIND OUT HOW A

DREAM GAVE HER THESE ANSWERS

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: SADIMA GREW UP

IN THE SHADOWS OF A

REVOLUTION.

IN IRAN, SHE LIVED TO SEE

THE RISE OF THE AYATOLLAH,

AND THE DOWNFALL OF

FREEDOM.

ALL HER LIFE, SHE KNEW

NOTHING BUT ISLAM, UNTIL THE

NIGHT SHE MET A STRANGER IN

A DREAM.

Reporter: OF THE SEVEN

BILLION PEOPLE LIVING ON OUR

PLANET, TWO BILLION ARE

CHRISTIAN, AND 2.1 MILLION

ARE MUSLIMS.

TWO DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS WITH

TWO VERY DIFFERENT POINTS OF

VIEW.

VADIMA LEARNED THE TRUTH

ABOUT THESE TWO RELIGIOUS ON

HER SEARCH FOR GOD.

ON THE INSIDE, I FELT

LIKE THERE WAS A HUGE HEART

HANGING IN MY HEART.

I COULD TELL YOU WHAT THE

SIZE OF IT WAS, WHAT IT

LOOKED LIKE.

IT WAS REAL AND IT WAS

PAINFUL.

IT WAS LIKE SOMETHING THAT

WOULD DRAW ME DOWN AND

WOULDN'T LET ME, YOU KNOW,

LIVE.

THERE WAS NO HOPE IN IT.

THERE WAS NO HOPE FOR THE

FUTURE.

Reporter: FATIMA WAS

RAISED IN IRAN AS A MUSLIM.

BEING A MUSLIM IS NOT BY

CHOICE.

IT IS BY HEREDITY.

IF YOU'RE PARENTS ARE MUSLIM

AND YOU'RE BORN IN THAT

FAMILY, YOU'RE AUTOMATICALLY

A MUSLIM.

Reporter: BUT FATIMA

RESISTED HER FAITH.

AT A VERY YOUNG AGE, I

STARTED QUESTIONING IF THERE

WAS A GOD OR NOT.

I WOULD BE SPENDING HOURS

AND HOURS AND HOURS THINKING

WHAT WOULD GOD LOOK LIKE,

WHERE WOULD HE BE.

BUT TRADITIONALLY IN ISLAMIC

CULTURE, YOU DON'T ASK THESE

QUESTIONS.

THEY'RE TABOO.

IF YOU START ASKING

QUESTIONS LIKE THESE, THEY

WILL CALL YOU FAITHLESS.

Reporter: GROWING UP,

THE GOD OF THE QURAN WAS THE

ONLY GOD THAT FATIMA EVER

KNEW.

HE IS NOT A PERSONAL

GOD.

HE IS DISTANT AND HE IS A

CREATOR.

NOBODY KNOWS WHO HE IS.

NOBODY KNOWS HIS NATURE.

NOBODY KNOWS HIS PLANS.

YOU JUST KNOW HE CARES ABOUT

MORALITY, AND IN ORDER TO GO

TO HEAVEN, YOU MUST DO GOOD

WORKS.

IT IS THROUGH YOUR GOOD

WORKS.

Reporter: AS A

TEENAGER, FATIMA LOOKED FOR

ANSWERS IN FORTUNE TELLING

AND BY READING COFFEE

GROUNDS.

I DID THAT FOR A FEW

YEARS.

LIKE I SAID, I WAS STILL

SEARCHING FOR GOD.

THAT PRACTICE DID NOT LEAD

ME TO KNOW GOD.

BUT STILL I SEARCHED.

I HAD NO CHOICE.

SOMETHING IN ME WOULD NOT

REST.

AND SO FINALLY I CAME TO THE

CONCLUSION -- I SAID GOD,

YOU'RE EITHER SO COMPLICATED

THAT I COULD NEVER KNOW YOU,

OR YOU'RE JUST RIGHT IN

FRONT OF MY EYES AND I CAN'T

SEE YOU.

AND I REMEMBER LIKE EVERY

DAY I WOULD CRY AND CRY AND

ASK GOD TO SHOW ME HIMSELF.

I WOULD LOOK AT THE SUN --

ARE YOU THE SUN?

IS THAT HOW YOU REVEAL

YOURSELF?

YOU KNOW, WHERE AM I

SUPPOSED TO LOOK.

Reporter: HER CRY WAS

ANSWERED WHEN FATIMA SAYS

THAT JESUS APPEARED TO HER

IN A DREAM.

I DREMPT THAT JESUS AND I

WERE WALKING IN A ROSE

GARDEN.

AND IT MAKES ME CRY.

AND WE WERE WALKING.

AND IN THE DREAM, I'M

THINKING, HE IS A PROPHET.

AND HE IS WALKING, AND I'M

JUST FOLLOWING.

AND HE SAID, DO YOU WANT TO

COME WITH ME.

AND I SAID YES.

AND HE SAID, THEN FOLLOW

ME.

AND I SAID, H'MMM, MY MIND

THINKING HOW WOULD YOU

FOLLOW A PERSON WHO IS NOT

EVEN -- HE IS A PROPHET.

HOW WOULD YOU FOLLOW A

PERSON AND NOT HIS

INSTRUCTIONS.

SO THAT WAS KIND OF

PUZZLING, WHY WOULD HE ASK

ME THAT.

Reporter: NIGHT AFTER

NIGHT, FATIMA HAD DREAMS

ABOUT JESUS, GOD, AND

CHURCHES.

OLD CHURCHES, NEW

CHURCHES, MODERN CHURCHES.

AND I DREMPT THAT, YOU KNOW,

MY MOM AND ALL OF MY FAMILY

ARE HOLDING HANDS AND GOING

TO THE CHURCH.

Reporter: FATIMA MOVED

TO THE UNITED STATES WHEN

SHE WAS 20.

SHE MET A FRIEND FROM WORK

WHO TOLD HER ABOUT JESUS.

IT WAS AFTER HE ACCEPTED

THE LORD JESUS THAT HE FOUND

JOY AND PEACE.

AND THOSE WORDS JUST

POPPED.

AND I SAID, WOW, THIS IS

GOOD.

HE SAID EVERY TIME HE

RECEIVED IT.

EVERY TIME THEY PRAYED FOR

HIM.

HE IS FILLED WITH JOY AND

PEACE.

AND I WAS LIKE, OH, I WANT

THAT.

I WANT THE JOY AND PEACE.

Reporter: SO FATIMA

WENT TO A CHRISTIAN CHURCH,

AND A WOMAN THERE ASKED

HER --

DO YOU BELIEVE JESUS

CHRIST IS GOD?

AND I SAID, DID HE SAY THAT?

DID HE SAY THAT HE WAS GOD?

AND SHE SAID, YES, HE SAYS

THAT.

AND I SAID, SURE, I BELIEVE

HE IS GOD.

TRUST ME, I'LL FIND OUT IF

HE IS NOT.

I'LL FIND OUT, YOU KNOW, IF

THINGS AREN'T TRUE.

BUT I'M WILLING TO GIVE

JESUS A TRY.

DEFINITELY.

AND SHE SAID, DO YOU WANT TO

PRAY THE SALVATION PRAYER?

ABSOLUTELY.

SO -- BECAUSE I THINK GOD

HAD SAU SOFTENED ME UP TO

THE POINT WHERE I WAS SOFT

TOWARDS GOD AND I WASN'T

RESISTANT.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT,

AFTER YEARS OF SEARCHING,

FATIMA PRAYED TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

THINGS JUST STARTED

CHANGING.

THAT HEAVY, HEAVY HEART,

THAT STONE THAT I COULD --

IT'S SHARP, EVEN.

TO FEEL HOW SHARP AND

PAINFUL IT WAS -- THAT WAS

GONE.

IT WAS COMPLETELY GONE.

THAT NIGHT THE LORD JUST --

IT'S JUST LIKE HE TOOK HIS

HAND IN MY HEART AND TOOK

THAT ROCK OUT PERMANENTLY.

THE ONE SIGNIFICANT THING

THAT GOD DID FOR ME, THAT

CHRIST DID, WAS THAT HE PUT

HOPE IN MY HEART.

A PERMANENT HOPE, AND AS I

GOT TO KNOW THE LORD MORE,

YOU KNOW, OF COURSE THE LORD

GAVE ME MANY MORE DREAMS

JUST TO SHOW THAT THE

SCRIPTURES WERE TRUE.

AND IN EVERYTHING I WAS

READING, GOD WAS BACKING

THEM UP.

Reporter: DAY FATIMA'S

MOTHER, BROTHER, AND TWO

SISTERS ARE ALL CHRISTIANS.

FATIMA IS A REAL ESTATE

BROKER AND STUDYING TO BE A

PSYCHOLOGIST.

SHE IS ALSO MARRIED AND HAS

TWO SONS.

FATIMA UNDERSTANDS MUSLIMS

WHO ARE CURIOUS ABOUT JESUS,

AND THOSE WHO REALLY DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHO JESUS IS.

I WOULD SAY DON'T SAY NO

JUST BECAUSE YOUR PARENTS

WERE MUSLIMS.

AND YOUR GREAT GRANDPARENTS

ARE MUSLIMS, AND THIS IS

WHAT YOU'RE ALWAYS TAUGHT.

YOU NEED TO FIND GOD FOR

YOURSELF.

HE IS AVAILABLE.

IF JESUS SAYS HE IS GOD,

THEN HE WILL PROVE IT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO HAVE IS AN

OPEN HEART TO ALLOW JESUS TO

COME IN, AND THEN YOU WILL

KNOW FOR YOURSELF IF HE IS

GOD OR HE IS NOT GOD.

Terry: YOU KNOW, GOD

WANTS TO HAVE A ONE-ON-ONE,

INDIVIDUAL, PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH AND

EVERY ONE OF US.

WE'RE NOT JUST DOWN HERE IN

SOME GIGANTIC MASS OF PEOPLE

CREATED BY SOMEONE OR SOME

THING WHO JUST OBSERVATION

US.

IN THE BEGINNING OF TIME,

GOD CREATED PLAN TO WALK IN

THE GARDEN WITH HIM.

TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM

EVERY DAY.

THE SEPARATION BETWEEN US

AND GOD COMES NOT BECAUSE HE

SEPARATED HIMSELF, BUT

BECAUSE WE TURNED AWAY FROM

HIM TO GO OUR OWN WAY, TO

WALK OUR OWN PATH.

AND SOMETIMES WE DON'T EVEN

KNOW THE STORY, ESPECIALLY

IN OUR WORLD TODAY.

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE SO MANY

ISMs OUT THERE, SO MANY

THEOLOGYS, AND ONE OF THE

REASON THEY'RE OUT THERE IS

BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE GRASPING,

JUST LIKE FATIMA, TO HAVE

JOY, TO HAVE PEACE, TO HAVE

HOPE.

THERE IS MUCH IN THE WORLD

TODAY THAT ROBS US OF ALL OF

THAT UNTIL YOU KNOW THE ONE

WHO BRINGS IT ALL.

THE ONE WHO SITS ON THE

THRONE.

THE ONE THAT IS THE CREATOR

OF ALL THERE IS, INCLUDING

YOU AND ME.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS WE ARE

CREATED IN HIS IMAGE AND

LIKENESS.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN WE

SEARCH FOR HIM WITH ALL OF

OUR HEARTS, JUST LIKE FATIMA

DID, WE WILL FIND HIM.

GOD DESIRES TO REVEAL

HIMSELF TO US.

IN MANY OTHER RELIGIONS,

MANY OTHER FAITHS, PEOPLE

OFFER ALL KINDS OF

SACRIFICES TO STATUES AND TO

THE GODS OF THEIR FATHER,

AND AS SHE SAID,

GRANDFATHERS AND GREAT

GRANDFATHERS, TRYING TO

APPEASE THEM SO NO HARM, NO

ILL, WILL COME TO THEM.

THE GOD WHO CREATED THE

UNIVERSE, THE ONE, TRUE GOD,

THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU AND

WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH

YOU, IS NOT A GOD WHO NEEDS

TO BE APPEASED.

HE COMES TO US DESIRING TO

CONNECT WITH US, DESIRING TO

HAVE US KNOW WHO HE IS,

DESIRING TO MAKE US WHOLE

AND TO GIVE US THE LONGING

OF OUR HEART THAT COMES ONLY

FROM KNOWING HIM AND LOVING

HIM AND RECEIVING HIS LOVE

FOR US, WHICH IS GREAT.

HOW DO YOU TAP INTO THAT?

YOU DO IT AS SIMPLY AS

FATIMA DID.

YOU JUST SAY A PRAYER OF

COMMITMENT.

YOU SAY, GOD, I WANT YOU.

YES, I'M SAYING YES TO YOU.

DO YOU WANT TO PRAY THAT

WITH ME RIGHT NOW?

START -- I LOVE WHAT SHE

SAID, I'M GOING TO GIVE

JESUS THE SAME CHANCE I'VE

GIVEN EVERYTHING ELSE.

GIVE HIM A CHANCE TODAY.

GIVE HIM A CHANCE.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE

STANDS AT THE DOOR OF THE

HEART OF MEN AND WOMEN AND

KNOCKS.

AND THOSE WHO HEAR HIM AND

CHOOSE TO OPEN THE DOOR AND

INVITE HIM IN, HE WILL COME

IN AND TAKE UP RESIDENCY

WITH AND HAVE FELLOWSHIP

WITH.

HE'LL LOVE YOU, LEAD YOU,

RESTORE YOU, HEAL YOU, GIVE

YOU HOPE.

SO PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

JUST BOW YOUR HEAD WHERE YOU

ARE AND PRAY.

GOD, I WANT TO KNOW YOU,

JESUS.

YOU'RE MORE THAN A NAME I'VE

HEARD.

I WANT TO KNOW YOU.

SO TODAY I'M SETTING ASIDE

EVERYTHING AND SAYING, YES

TO YOU.

YES, I BELIEVE YOU ARE WHO

YOU SAID YOU ARE.

I WANT TO KNOW YOU AS MY

LORD, MY SAVIOR, MY GOD.

COME INTO MY HEART.

FORGIVE MY SINS.

YOU KNOW THAT I'M IN NEED OF

YOU AND YOUR SALVATION.

FORGIVE ME, LORD, AND THEN

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

REVEAL MORE OF WHO YOU ARE

TO ME.

FILL ME WITH THE JOY AND THE

KNOWLEDGE OF YOU ARE AND WHO

I AM TO YOU.

LOVE ME, LORD, AND RECEIVE

MY LOVE TO YOU.

TODAY I SAY YES TO

EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO GIVE

ME.

AND I GIVE YOU EVERYTHING

THAT I AM, AND ALL THAT I

HAVE.

TEACH ME HOW TO LIVE FOR

YOU, AND, YES, I RECEIVE THE

GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE WITH

YOU TODAY.

IN JESUS' NAME I PRAY.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE PRAYED THAT PRAYER

AND BEGUN THAT JOURNEY IN

YOUR LIFE, LET US SEND YOU

THIS.

IT IS TOTALLY FREE.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

PAT PUT THIS TOGETHER JUST

FOR YOU.

IT IS FILLED WITH WONDERFUL

VERSES FROM THE BIBLE THAT

TALK ABOUT WHO GOD IS, HIS

GREAT LOVE FOR YOU.

WHAT DOES HE WANT FROM US?

HOW DO WE LIVE FOR HIM?

IF YOU'LL CALL THE TOLL-FREE

NUMBER ON THE SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY I PRAYED THAT

PRAYER AND I WOULD LIKE "A

NEW DAY," AND WE'LL SEND IT

TO YOU.

PAT?

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WE HAVE A

DRAMATIC HEALING THAT IS

GOING TO TAKE PLACE.

A WOMAN IS HEALED OF

CRIPPLING BACK PAIN IN AN

INSTANT.

AND WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOUR NEEDS, SO DON'T GO

AWAY.

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

*

Pat: TERRY MELONFONT

HAS NO CLUE HOW SHE HURT HER

BACK.

OH, HAVE WE GOT A MIRACLE

FOR YOU.

ALL SHE KNOWS IS THAT IT WAS

EXCRUCIATING, AND IT WENT ON

FOR WEEKS, AND THEN SUDDENLY

SHE WAS HEALED AS FAST AS

LIGHTNING.

HERE IS HER AMAZING STORY.

Reporter: A MONTH

BEFORE EASTER, TERRY

MELONFONT WAS ALREADY

PREPARING FOR THE HOLIDAY.

BUT DEBILITATING BACK PAIN

BROUGHT HER PLANS TO A

HALT.

I DON'T KNOW HOW IT

STARTED.

ALL I KNOW IS IT WAS THERE,

FROM THE TIP OF MY HEAD ALL

THE WAY DOWN THE SPINE AND

EVEN MY SIDES, EVERYTHING,

IT WOULD HURT.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

FEW WEEKS, THE PAIN

INCREASED.

IT GOT WORSE EVERY --

ALMOST EVERY DAY FOR THE

ENTIRE MONTH.

THE PAIN COULD GET SO

EXCRUCIATING IT WOULD HURT

TO WALK.

IT WOULD HURT TO SIT.

IT WOULD HURT TO STAND.

Reporter: EASTER SUNDAY

CAME AND TERRY WAS STILL IN

PAIN.

SHE COULDN'T EVEN HOLD HER

GRANDCHILDREN.

I WAS REALLY UPSET WITH

MYSELF.

WHEN I WENT TO DO SOMETHING,

MY BODY WOULDN'T COOPERATE.

AND THAT WAS FRUSTRATING,

VERY FRU FRUSTRATING TO

ME.

Reporter: THE NEXT

MORNING, TERRY WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

AS A REGULAR VIEWER, SHE

ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO THE

PRAYER TIMES.

PAT AND TERRY WERE

PRAYING, AND I WAS PRAYING

SILENTLY.

Pat: JUST PUT YOUR HAND

ON THE SMALL OF YOUR BACK,

WHATEVER YOU CAN REACH.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOUR

BACK IS STRAIGHTENING OUT.

THAT SPINAL COLUMN WAS

STRAIGHTENING.

Reporter:

STRAIGHTENING.

I WAS ENDING MY PRAYER AT

THE SAME TIME PAT WAS ENDING

HIS PRAYER.

AND WE BOTH SAID --

Pat: IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AND WHEN I SAID JESUS,

BEFORE I EVEN FINISHED HIS

NAME, THE PAIN WAS TOTALLY

GONE.

IT WAS FASTER THAN

LIGHTNING.

I WENT FROM EXCRUCIATING

PAIN TO BEING TOTALLY

HEALED.

Reporter: SINCE HER

HEALING, TERRY HAS RETURNED

TO HER ACTIVE LIFESTYLE, AND

IS ENJOYING EVERY MOMENT

WITH HER FAMILY.

I HAVE HAD ABSOLUTELY NO

PAIN SINCE THEN.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

I CAN'T DO.

HE IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS.

HE DOES WHAT HE SAYS HE IS@=

SUPPOSED TO DO.

AND HIS LOVE NEVER FAILS,

NEVER FAILS.

Pat: HIS LOVE NEVER

FAILS!

FOLKS, THAT'S THE WAY IT

IS.

INSTANTLY, MIRACULOUSLY.

NOW, I DIDN'T KNOW TERRY.

I KNOW ONE TERRY, WHO IS

HERE, BUT THIS TERRY DOESN'T

HAVE A BACK PROBLEM.

ISN'T THAT REMARKABLE?

Terry: IT IS

REMARKABLE.

AND HERE SHE IS WITH ALL OF

THESE YOUNG CHILDREN.

AND SO YOU KNOW SHE IS

BENDING AND TWISTING.

THAT WAS COMPLETE HEALING.

THIS IS MARILYN, WHO LIVES

IN MASSACHUSETTS.

SHE DEVELOPED BREATHING

PROBLEMS AND A TERRIBLE

COUGH, AND HAD IT FOR OVER

TWO MONTHS.

SHE ENDED UP IN THE

EMERGENCY ROOM THREE TIMES

IN THREE DAYS.

DOCTORS DIAGNOSED HER WITH

CHRONIC BRONCHITIS, BUT THE

BREATHING PROBLEMS JUST GOT

WORSE.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS SHOW, AND SHE HEARD YOU

SAY, PAT, THERE IS A

TERRIBLE BREATHING PROBLEM

RIGHT NOW.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR CHEST

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AND

TAKE A DEEP BREATH.

COUGH AND THAT BREATHING

PROBLEM IS TAKEN CARE OF.

MARILYN DID THAT, AND SHE

SAID IMMEDIATELY HER

BREATHING WAS BETTER.

SHE STOPPED TAKING THE

MEDICINE, AND HER DOCTOR HAS

CONFIRMED THAT SHE IS

HEALED.

Pat: FOLKS, IF YOU JUST

UNDERSTOOD HOW POWERFUL GOD

IS, HOW POWERFUL HE IS.

THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE

WITH HIM.

IF YOU'VE GOT FAITH AS BIG

AS A MUSTARD SEED, YOU CAN

SAY TO A PLANT BE ROOTED UP

AND CAST INTO THE SEA, AND

IT WILL OBEY YOU.

NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE.

ALL RIGHT, THIS IS MARGE

GREAT.

SHE LIVES IN GALOWAY, NEW

JERSEY.

SHE HAD PAIN IN HER EAR, AND

IT FELT CLOGGED AND SHE ALSO

HAD SOME HEARING LOSS.

THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED

ANTIBIOTICS, BUT THE PAIN

PERSISTED.

AFTER COMING HOME FROM WORK,

SHE TURNED ON THIS PROGRAM.

TERRY HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, AND SHE SAID

THERE IS SOMEONE WHO HAS AN

EAR PROBLEM, YOU'VE LOST A

LITTLE BIT OF HEARING, AND

YOU COULD HEAR THIS

CRACKLING SOUND AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU.

MARGARET BEGAN TO CRY

BECAUSE HE HEARD THE

CRACKLING SOUND AND HER

HEARING RETURNED.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

WOULD YOU PLEASE JOIN US.

WOULD YOU PLEASE ACCEPT WHAT

GOD WANTS TO DO FOR YOU.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO

ANYTHING.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO JUMP

AROUND ARE BE SOME KIND OF

HOLY.

JUST TAKE IT.

JUST REACH OUT AND SAY, YES,

I RECEIVE IT.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

TOGETHER, AND WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, WE THANK YOU FOR

THESE ANSWERS TO PRAYER.

WE THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD.

SOMEBODY HAS GOT A PROBLEM,

ONE LOBE IN YOUR LUNG IS

DISEASED.

IT IS A FUNGUS OF SOME

KIND.

AND GOD HAS JUST REACHED IN

THERE.

YOU'LL FEEL A BURNING AND IT

IS COMPLETELY HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEBODY ELSE,

YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A

VERY, VERY RARE BLOOD

DISEASE.

SO RARE THAT THE DOCTORS WHO

ARE TREATING YOU HAVEN'T

ACTUALLY SEEN IT BEFORE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

JUST AS IT CAME

UNEXPECTANTLY, IT WILL BE

GONE UNEXPECTANTLY.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT AN

INGENAL HERNIA.

AND RIGHT NOW THAT HERNIA IS

GOING BACKWARDS, AND GOD IS

PROVIDING SOMETHING THAT

WILL SEAL OFF THAT PROBLEM

AS IF IT HAD BEEN OPERATED

ON.

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME OF

CREATIVE MIRACLES TAKING

PLACE IN YOUR BODY.

Terry: SOMEBODY ELSE,

YOU HAVE A CHRONIC -- LIKE A

SINUS CONDITION.

IT IS NOT ALLERGIES.

YOU HAVE IT ALL OF THE

TIME.

THERE IS SO MUCH DRAINING,

YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TROUBLES

SPEAKING AND SWALLOWING.

GOD IS DRYING THAT UP FOR

YOU AND YOU WON'T HAVE THAT

PROBLEM ANYMORE.

Pat: THERE ARE 10

PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE

PRAYING ABOUT YOUR DEBTS.

GOD IS GOING TO SET YOU

FREE.

HE IS GOING TO SUPPLY YOU

WITH THE MONEY YOU NEED TO

GET DEBT-FREE.

SAY I'M ONE OF THOSE 10, AND

I RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

LET US HEAR WHAT GOD HAS

DONE FOR YOU, PLEASE.

WE'D BE GLAD TO HAVE PEOPLE

PRAY FOR YOU IF YOU NEED

FURTHER PRAYER.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, WE

SCOURED OUR IN-BOX FOR

QUESTIONS.

AMY SAYS, "PAT, WE'RE A

SENIOR COUPLE PLANNING FOR

RETIREMENT.

WE HAVE INVESTED IN GOLD,

BUT YOU JUST SAID YOU GOT

OUT OF GOLD.

WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?"

STAY TUNED.

HE IS GOING TO TELL US ALL

WHEN WE COME BACK.

*

Terry: YOU KNOW, IT

SEEMS SO TRIVIAL TO GET A

CUP OF WATER.

MOST OF US JUST TURN ON THE

FAUCET.

CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST

FEEL LIKE TO HAVE TO DEPEND

ON YOUR NEIGHBORS JUST TO

GET A DRINK.

Reporter: TANENI LIVES

ALONG IN A REMOTE PART OF

SOUTH AFRICA.

SHE LOST HER HUSBAND YEARS

AGO, AND HER CHILDREN HAVE

ALL MOVED AWAY.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT FOR

ME.

I DID NOT EVEN HAVE WATER.

AND THERE WAS NO ONE TO HELP

ME.

Reporter: TANENI HAD TO

WAIT FOR NEIGHBORS TO BRING

WATER FROM A RIVER A FEW

MILES AWAY.

WHEN I WAS A BIT YOUNGER,HL

I WENT MYSELF.

BUT NOW I CANNOT.

Reporter: THEN CBN

HEARD ABOUT HER PROBLEM AND

DUG A WELL ON HER PROPERTY.

TANENI DANCED WITH JOY.

I FEEL VERY WELL WITH

THIS NEW WELL.

I WILL BE ABLE TO GET WATER

ANY TIME I WANT IT.

I CAN USE WATER TO COOK, DO

DISHES.

Reporter: AND WHEN

NEIGHBORS NEED WATER, THEY

USE HER WELL, TOO.

THEY USED TO FETCH WATER

FOR ME.

AND NOW I'M ABLE TO HELP

THEM.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, CBN.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: LIFE IS SO

INCREDIBLY HARD IN SOME

PARTS OF THE WORLD.

IT'S ASTONISHING.

AND YET SO SIMPLE FOR YOU

AND I TOGETHER TO COME INTO

THE MIDDLE OF THAT NEED AND

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

LET'S DO THAT ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

CBN'S ALREADY OUT THERE

MAKING CHANGES LIKE THIS IN

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

AND THAT'S WHY WE INVITE YOU

TO JOIN WITH US AND MAKING

THAT KIND OF A DIFFERENCE.

IN BEING THERE, IN BEING

JESUS TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE

SUCH DEEP NEEDS.

HELP US DO THAT.

IT'S JOINING "THE 700 CLUB"

THAT MAKES IT ALL HAPPEN.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH

MAKES YOU A MEMBER.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

YOUR PHONE, THAT TOLL-FREE

NUMBER YOU SEE ON THE

SCREEN, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

YOU WILL BE JOINING

THOUSANDS OF OTHER PEOPLE

WHO HAVE MADE A DECISION TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE IN NEED ALL

AROUND THE WORLD, AS WELL AS

HERE AT HOME.

COME ALONG WITH THE REST OF

US.

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU BY SENDING YOU "A

QUEST FOR GOD."

THIS IS A TEACHING THAT

GORDON HAS DONE.

IT EXPLORES MANY OF THE

RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD, AND

SHOWS YOU WHY WHAT WE

BELIEVE IS SO INCREDIBLY

DIFFERENT, SO INCREDIBLY

TRUE, SO INCREDIBLY

SIGNIFICANT.

JOIN NOW, CALL "THE 700

CLUB," AND WE'LL GET THIS

OUT TO YOU RIGHT AWAY.

THIS IS AMY WHO SAYS, "PAT,

WE'RE A SENIOR COUPLE

PLANNING FOR RETIREMENT, AND

WE HAVE INVESTED IN GOLD.

BUT YOU SAID YESTERDAY YOU

SOLD YOUR GOLD.

WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?"

Pat: WE HAVE A TREASURY

ACCOUNT AT CBN, AND I HAD

GOLD AND SILVER.

AND THERE WAS CLOSE TO

$2 MILLION IN GAIN IN THE

ACCOUNT.

SO I THOUGHT IT WAS TIME TO

CLOSE IT OUT.

THE MARKET IS GETTING A

LITTLE SOFT AND I THOUGHT IT

WAS TIME.

AS FAR AS LONG-RANGE, I SEE

NOTHING WRONG WITHHOLDING ON

TO GOLD.

IT IS MUCH BETTER THAN THE

FADING DOLLAR.

SO IF YOU'VE INVESTED IN

GOLD -- BUT YOU HAVE TO LOOK

AT THINGS.

THERE IS NOTHING, BESIDES

THE GOSPEL, THAT LASTS

FOREVER.

YOU MOVE INTO VARIOUS ASSET

CLASSES AND THEN YOU MOVE

OUT.

I THOUGHT THE U.S. DOLLAR

WAS GOING TO BE BAD, AND LO

AND BEHOLD, THE DOLLAR HAS

STRESTRENGTHENED AGAINST

OTHERS.

BUT I'M INVESTING FOR A

COMPANY.

BUT MY OWN PERSONAL THING,

I'VE STILL GOT GOLD AND

SILVER IN MY I.R.A. .

Terry: SO REST.

THOMAS SAID: "RECENTLY THEY

FOUND A 1500-YEAR-OLD BIBLE

IN TURKEY.

SHIS CONTAINS MANY OF THE

BOOKS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,

BUT IT ALSO CONTAINS

SOMETHING WHERE JESUS

CONVICTS AND CONDEMNS

MOHAMMED.

THAT SEEMS IMPORTANT.

WHY IS THAT LEFT OUT OF THE

BIBLE TODAY?"

Pat: THERE IS NO SUCH

THING AS BARNABUS.

IF THERE IS SUCH A BOOK IN

TURKEY, THAT IS JUST A

FRAUD.

Terry: AND THAT'S NOT

THE ONLY FRAUD THAT HAS BEEN

OUT THERE.

Pat: THERE ARE MANY OF

THEM.

THE APOCUFRAUD IS NOT PART

OF THEM, BUT THERE HAVE BEEN

PSEUDO THIS AND PSEUDO THE

OTHER.

SOMEHOW THE SIMPLEST,

SHORTEST BOOKS ARE THE TRUE

ONES, AND THEY RING BACK

INTO YOUR HEART.

AND TO THOSE WHO ARE

STUDYING THE GREEK AND THE

HEBREW THAT IS INVOLVED, IS

SO MUCH MORE SIMPLE.

IT IS SO SIMPLE TO SEE THE

GOOD STUFF VERSUS THE BAD

STUFF.

Terry: AND THERE IS A

TRUTH THAT READS THROUGH ALL

OF THE GOOD STUFF.

Pat: BUT THE BAD STUFF

ALWAYS HAS SOME ADDITION.

THEY HAVE TO PUT STUFF OUT.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

SO WHAT IS A WIKI CHURCH?

Terry: I THINK WIKI IN

HAWAIIAN MEANS QUICK.

SO TOMORROW WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT WHAT A WIKI

CHURCH MEANS.

Pat: HAWAII.

Terry: WE'RE NOT GOING

TO HAWAII.

Pat: TODAY WE LEAVE YOU

WITH THESE WORDS FROM THE

PSALMS: "MY SOUL TRUSTED

YOU, AND IN THE SHADOW OF

YOUR WINGS I WILL TAKE MY

REFUGE."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

BYE-BYE.
