DATING AFTER DIVORCE.

IS THERE EVER A RIGHT TIME

TO

DATE AS A SINGLE PARENT AND A

WRONG TIME?

QUICK TURN AROUNDS ARE

DANGEROUS.

THE REBOUND.

I'M THE REBOUND.

THE LATEST INSTALLMENT OF

OUR

VOICE OF HOPE SERIES ON TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB".

IF YOU CAN'T CONNECT THERE

NOTHING ELSE REALLY MATTERS.

THE BURNING QUESTION TODAY

BEFORE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IS

JOE BIDEN READY TO BE

PRESIDENT?

BECAUSE HE IS ONE HEARTBEAT

AWAY, AND THE OTHER QUESTION IS

SHOULD AMERICA MAKE ENERGY

CHEAPER BY DEVELOPING ITS OWN

FUEL SOURCES LIKE COAL AND OIL?

OR SHOULD IT FOCUS ON WIND

POWER

AND SOLAR PANELS? THAT'S THE

DEBATE GOING ON NOW BETWEEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CHALLENGER

MITT ROMNEY.

WELL, YOU MENTIONED VICE

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN -- WELL,

HE'S MADE NEWS OF HIS OWN WITH

A

CONTROVERSIAL REMARK IN

VIRGINIA. WE HAVE THE STORY.

IN OHIO COAL COUNTRY MITT

ROMNEY ACCUSED THE PRESIDENT OF

LAUNCHING WHAT HE CALLED A WAR

ON COAL.

WE HAVE COAL WHY WOULDN'T WE

USE IT.

OBAMA PUT IN REGULATIONS

THAT

PUT A STRAIN ON THE ECONOMY AND

ON JOB CREATION.

HE'S FOR ALL THE SOURCES

ABOVE THE GROUND. NOTHING

COMES

FROM BELOW THE GROUND LIKE OIL

AND GAS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA FOCUSED ON

WIND POWER WHICH IS POPULAR

WITH

FARMERS.

THE WIND INDUSTRY NOW

SUPPORTS 7,000 JOBS IN IOWA.

HE WANTS TAX CREDITS FOR

WIND

COMPANIES AND SAYS MITT ROMNEY

AND PAUL RYAN ARE OUT OF TOUCH.

HE SAYS WIND IS IMAGERY.

HIS

RUNNING MATE CALLS IT A FAD.

AND THERE IS THE MEDICARE

DEBATE AND A ISSUE WITH SENIOR

CITIZENS.

OBAMA HAS CUT FROM MEDICARE.

WHY? TO PAY FOR OBAMACARE.

AND GOING TO WRITE THEIR OWN

RULES. UNCHAIN WALLSTREET.

THEY'RE GOING TO PUT YOU ALL

BACK IN CHAINS.

HE NOTED THAT BACK IN CHAINS

WAS INARTFULLY PHRASED BUT

REPUBLICANS HAVE USED THE SAME

THING WITH THE PRIVATE SECTOR.

MR. ROMNEY DIDN'T BUY IT.

MR. PRESIDENT TAKE YOUR

DIVISION AND CAMPAIGN AND HATE

BACK TO CHICAGO AND LET US GET

ABOUT REBUILDING AMERICA.

THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN SHOT BACK

AND SEEMED HE WAS UNHINGED.

ROMNEY IS HAVING A DIFFERENT

REACTION. PAUL RYAN HAS HELPED

BRING IN BIG BUCKS. A

SPOKESPERSON SAYS THEY ARE

RAISED 7.4 MILLION

ONLINE CBN NEWS.

YOU ALL WANT TO TAKE THOSE

CHAINS OFF OF YOU. COME ON.

HE'S FROM PHILADELPHIA,

DELAWARE, WHEREVER.

I WAS LISTENING TO NEWS

IT'S JUST NOT THE WISEST CHOICE

OF WORDS TO TALK TO A

PREDOMINANTLY GROUP OF COLOR

AND

BACK IN CHAINS.

NOW YOU ALL -- I'M GOING TO

TELL YOU HOW IT IS.

YEAH.

OKAY. WELL, ONE HEARTBEAT

AWAY FROM THE PRESIDENT. THEY

TALK ABOUT WHO IS QUALIFIED.

GIVE ME A BREAK. WAIT UNTIL

YOU

SEE THE DEBATES. I THINK IT'S

GOING TO BE FASCINATING AND

PAUL

RYAN AGAINST JOE BIDEN. MAYBE

HE WILL DUCK AND CANCEL THE

DEBATES. IF I WERE HIM I WOULD

HEAD FOR THE HILLS AND GO AND

FISH. LEE WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

PAT, IN OTHER NEWS TODAY A

LAWSUIT AGAINST PLAN PARENTHOOD

IS MOVING FORWARD. THE

ABORTION

PROVIDER IS ACCUSED OF DEFRAUD

ING STATE GOVERNMENTS OF

SERVICES IT DIDN'T PROVIDE. A

COURT AGREED AND IF PROVEN THAT

VIOLATES FEDERAL LAW AND THAT

CASE PATD IS NOW MOVING TO

TRIAL.

I WILL TELL YOU THE HEAD OF

THE ACLJ AND I AM EXCITED ABOUT

THIS CASE. THERE ARE TWO

CASES,

ONE IN CALIFORNIA, ONE IN

TEXAS,

OTHERS LOOMING IN THE

BACKGROUND

WHERE PEOPLE THAT HAVE WORKED

FOR PLANNED PARND HOOD HAVE

GONE

FORWARD AS WHISTLE

BLOWERS AND IN SOME CASES

CHARGING IT EXTRA FOR

PROCEDURES

AND IN THIS CASE PROCEDURES

THEY

DIDN'T PERFORM AND THE WHISTLE

BLOWER SUIT THE AMOUNT OF

DAMAGES ARE STAGGERING AND

EVERY

TIME A PLANNED PARENTHOOD

THROWS

A DEFENSE THE COURTS KNOCK IT

DOWN. IT WAS NECESSARY FOR THE

ACLU TO GET THE RULING FOR THIS

AND INTERESTING THE NINTH

CIRCUIT IN THE WEST COAST RULED

IN FAVOR OF THEM AND YOU HAVE

TO

TAKE THIS THING AND GO FORWARD

ON TRIAL. YOU CANNOT HOLD IT

UP

ON MOTIONS. YOU CAN'T BLAME

THE

LAWYERS FOR THE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD AND THIS IS A

CRIMELLING FINANCIAL BLOW TO

THEM BIG TIME. LEE.

PAT, THE WAR IS A BIG TOPIC

THESE DAYS AND ONE EXPERT SAYS

THERE HASN'T BEEN SO MUCH TALK

OF WAR AND BELIEVE ISRAELIS THE

GOVERNMENT WANTS THE REST OF

THE

WORLD TO GET INVOLVED AND THEY

SAY THEY HAVEN'T MADE A

DECISION

ON ATTACK YET. -- SAYS THE 93

YEAR OLD GRAHAM RESPONDED WELL

TO TREATMENT AND RECOVERED

QUICKLY AND SAYS GRAHAM IS

REMARKABLY HEALTHY FOR HIS AGE.

HE IS PLANNING A OUTREACH NEXT

YEAR. HE IS ALSO WRITING A NEW

BOOK. ATTENTION CHOCOLATE

LOVERS. A NEW

RECIPE IS OUT AND THEY SAY IT'S

GOOD FOR YOU AND REPLACE SOME

OF THE

INGREDIENTS AND IT'S GOOD FOR

YOU AND NO WORD IF WILL IT BE

ON

STORE SHELVES. PAT, ARE YOU

INTERESTED?

NO.

I WAS GOING TO SAY THE SAME

THING. IF IT'S NOT BROKE DON'T

FIX IT.

DO YOU EAT THE CHOCOLATE

THAT

IS GOOD FOR YOU?

I'M A EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

PERSON AND A LITTLE BIT OF

CHOCOLATE IS NOT GOING TO HURT

YOU. IN FACT I HAD SOME LAST

NIGHT. I SURE DID.

LOOK AT THE LABEL AND IF YOU

SEE 88% OF THE BAR YOU'RE

EATING

AND A TINY BIT OF THE OTHER

STUFF.

SO GOOD. I HAD A COUPLE

PIECES LAST NIGHT. I WOULD

HAVE

BROUGHT YOU SOME BUT I ATE IT.

I HAD MINE. IT'S DARK

CHOCOLATE, NOT MILK CHOCOLATE,

AND IT WILL OPEN UP YOUR VEINS

AND ARTERIES AND LOWER BLOOD

PRESSURE AND LIVE ON AND ON.

SOONER OR LATER I HAVE TO GO BE

WITH THE LORD BUT I HAVE A FEW

MORE YEARS.

AMEN. KEEP EATING YOUR

CHOCOLATE.

NOW YOU'RE GOING TO TELL ME

HOW I'M GOING TO DATE SINGLE

MOTHERS?

NOT YOU PAT.

I DON'T NEED ANY SINGLE

MEARKTS.

WELL, THAT IS OUR TOPIC THIS

WEDNESDAY ON VOICE OF HOPE AND

SINGLE PARENT DATING AND NOT

JUST SINGLE MOMS. ANYWAY WE'RE

GOING TO SWITCH GEARS A BIT AND

WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT. OVER

THE NEXT FEW MONTHS WE WILL

HEAR

FROM POLITICIANS FROM BOTH

SIDES

OF THE AISLE THAT SAY THEY KNOW

WHAT IS BEST FOR THE COUNTRY

BUT

DO THEY? WE WILL TELL YOU WHAT

REALLY MAKES AMERICA GREAT UP

NEXT.

YOU KNOW THE BOONE FAMILY

HAS

A LOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR. SURE

AT TIMES OUR CORE VALUES HAVE

BEEN SHAKEN AND TESTED BUT THEY

NEVER FAILED US. THE ECONOMIC

FUTURE IS NEVER BEEN AS

UNCERTAIN AS IT IS NOW BUT AS I

PLAN FOR MY CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN I AM CERTAIN OF

ONE THING MY DECISION TO LEAVE

THEM A LEGACY AND I HAVE PIECE

OF MIND MY FAMILY CAN FIND THIS

AND WITH GOLD AND CALL FOR A CD

DISCUSSING THE REPORT OF MONEY

THURSDAY MEET THE MANS,

STARS

OF TYLER PERRY'S "MEET THE

BROWNS". PLUS WE SIT DOWN WITH

ARIZONA'S CONTROVERSIAL

GOVERNOR

JAN BREWER. SHE OPENS UP ABOUT

POLITICS.

IT WAS GOING TO BE A

LIGHTNING ROD AND HER PRIVATE

LIFE.

IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT TIME.

THURSDAY ON THE "THE 700

CLUB".

WELL, TODAY AMERICA IS

CLEARLY DIVIDED POLITICALLY,

ECONOMICALLY, IDEA LODGEALLY,

SO

IS THERE REASON FOR AMERICA'S

FUTURE? WELL WE HAVE A ANSWER

TO THAT. TAKE A LOOK.

SOME WOULD SAY AMERICA'S

BEST

DAYS ARE BEHIND HER AND EROSION

OF LIBERTY AND PESSIMISM ABOUT

THE FUTURE A BOWD BUT PRESIDENT

OF THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION SAYS

THE VALUES THAT MADE AMERICA

GREAT STILL EXIST. IN THE

AMERICAN SPIRIT CELEBRATING THE

VIRTUES AND VALUES THAT MAKE US

GREAT COAUTHOR SHARE 20 KEY

VIRTUES THEY SAY DEFINES WHAT

IT

IS TO BE AMERICA AND

INDIVIDUALITY AND GENEROSITY

AND

COURAGE AND THEY SAY DESERVE TO

BE CHERISHED AND PRESERVED.

WELL, HE IS A DEAR FRIEND

FOR

MANY YEARS. HE'S THE HEAD OF

THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION AND THE

CONSERVATIVE THINK TANK IN

AMERICA AND ED IS JOINING US

FROM WASHINGTON TO TALK ABOUT

THE BOOK. WELCOME TO THE "THE

700 CLUB".

OH PAT IT'S SO GREAT TO BE

WITH YOU MY DEAR FRIEND OF SO

MANY YEARS. WONDERFUL TO BE ON

YOUR SHOW.

IT'S A TREMENDOUS BOOK

TALKING ABOUT AMERICA

EXCEPTIONALISM. WE HAVE A

PRESIDENT THAT SAYS AMERICA

ISN'T LIKE THAT AND IT IS. WHY?

WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAYS THAT

AND THE SAME WAY THE GREEKS ARE

EXCEPTIONAL AND I DON'T THINK

WE

WANT TO BE THAT WAY, BUT

AMERICA

IS AN EXCEPTIONAL BECAUSE IT'S

AN IDEA. AMERICA IS FOUNDED ON

THESE PRINCIPLES THAT WE TALK

ABOUT IN TERMS OF PATRIOTISM,

IN

TERMS OF FAITH, RESPONSIBILITY,

BELIEF IN FREEDOM. ALL THESE

THINGS CAME TOGETHER AND THAT

IS

WHAT AMERICA IS ALL ABOUT. YOU

READ THE DECLARATION OF

INDEPENDENCE AND OUR FOUNDERS

TALK ABOUT GIVING THEIR WHOLE

FORTUNE AND THEIR SACRED HONOR

ON BEHALF OF US AND BELIEVING

IN

DIVINE PROVIDENCE WE ARE DOING

THIS AND WE ARE A UNIQUE NATION

AND WE WANT TO CELEBRATE THAT.

WE HAVE AN ELECTION RIGHT

NOW

AND ROMNEY CHOOSE THE RUNNING

MATE AND A CHAMPION -- YOU USE

THAT TERM AMERICA IS AN IDEA.

WHAT DO THESE PROGRESSIVES ON

THE OTHER SIDE, WHAT DO THEY

BELIEVE? WHAT DO THEY WANT?

PAT, I'M AFRAID THE FIRST

THING THEY REALLY WANT TO DO IS

ELIMINATE WHAT WE CALL "CIVIL

SOCIETY" . THEY WANT TO GET

RID

OF ALL THE INSTITUTIONS THAT WE

ARE SO PROUD OF THAT HAVE BEEN

BUILT UP BETWEEN AN INDIVIDUAL

AND BETWEEN THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT. THEY JUST WANT

EVERY CITIZEN TO BE REALLY A

LACKEY OF THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT. THEY WANT NO

INSTITUTIONS OF FAITH. THEY

WANT NO PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS,

THE BOY SCOUTS, THE GIRL

SCOUTS,

SO MANY OTHER THINGS THAT BASICALLY THE AM ERICAN PEOPLE

ARE COMING BACK TO THEIR SENSES

AND I HOPE THEY GET THERE BY

THE

ELECTION.

TALKING ABOUT YOUR

FOUNDATION

AND YOU HAVE DONE SOME LANDMARK

STUDIES AND STILL DOING IT.

HOW

BIG IS THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION?

IT'S SO EXCITING TO BE WHERE

I AM. MY MOTHER ASKED ME WHEN

I

WAS MOVING BACK HOME AND GET A

REAL JOB. I AM THE HEAD OF

HERITAGE AND WE HAVE 7,000

MEMBERS AROUND THE COUNTRY. WE

HAVE 250 WORKERS, EMPLOYEES AT

HERITAGE. WE DO HUNDREDS OF

STUDIES EVERY YEAR. OUR

WEBSITE

IS VISITED BY MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE, AND WE LIKE TO THINK WE

ARE THE INTELLECTUAL FIREPOWER

BEHIND SO MUCH WHAT IS RIGHT

AND

WHAT IS GOING RIGHT WITH

AMERICA

TODAY.

ARE THE LEADERS, THE

POLITICIANS ARE THEY PICKS UP

THE CUES AND USING YOUR

POSITION

PAPERS FOR POLICY?

PAT, A YEAR AND A HALF AGO

THROUGH OUR RICH DEBOSS CENTER

WE HAD A BOOK TALKING ABOUT

THESE ISSUES. YOU KNOW WHO ONE

OF THE AUTHORS WAS? PAUL RYAN

AS ECONOMIC CONSERVATIVE

TALKING

ABOUT SOCIAL ISSUES AND YES

THEY'RE PICKING UP OUR IDEAS

THEY'RE HELPING US PRODUCE THEM

TOO.

IS THIS BOOK AVAILABLE NOW?

IS IT ON THE BOOK STANDS?

IT'S ON THE BOOK STANDS.

IT'S AVAILABLE. IT'S CALLED

"THE AMERICAN SPIRIT". AGAIN

WE'RE UPBEAT AND NOT TALKING

ABOUT TODAY'S POLITICS BUT

THINGS THAT UNITE US AS

AMERICANS AND POINT OUT WHAT AN

EXCEPTIONAL COUNTRY THIS IS.

ED, I CONGRATULATE YOU ON SO

MANY YEARS. WE HAVE BEEN

FRIENDS FOR YEARS AND I COMMEND

THIS BOOK, THE AMERICAN SPIRIT.

THIS IS A BOOK AND IT'S CALLED

"THE AMERICAN SPIRIT". THANKS

SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WHAT

YOU DO. GOD BLESS.

KRIET KRISTI.

A POLITICAL PARTY THAT WANTS

TO COME BACK TO THE HERITAGE

HERE IS THE MUCH CA. THEIR

COUNTRY IS NOT IN AMERICA. MAN BEHIND THI S

POLITICAL REVIVAL.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK TO GET

DAILY UPDATES AND CONTENT AND

CONNECT WITH OTHER "THE 700

CLUB" FOLLOWERS AND THE CBN

PRAYER CHAIN.

IF YOU'RE SITTING

÷

WELCOME BACK LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN. YESTERDAY I HAD A

FABULOUS MEETING WITH SOMEBODY

WHO WAS SO INTERESTING. I SAID

WE GOT TO HAVE HIM ON THE "THE

700 CLUB". UNFORTUNATELY HE

WAS

FLYING OUT THAT EVENING, BUT HE

WAS ABLE TO SIT DOWN AND GO

INTO

SOME DETAIL. THIS MAN WAS SUED

BY THE MUSLIMS IN AUSTRALIA

BECAUSE HE "DEFAMED" ISLAM.

THE CASE WENT TO THE SUPREME

COURT. HE WON OVERWHELMING AND

THE PEOPLE ARE APPLAUDING HIM

AS

A HERO, AND HE ALSO TOLD ME OF

A

TIME WHEN SAUDI ARABIA ARMED

POLICE CAME TO TAKE HIM AND

THEY

WERE GOING TO CUT HIS HEAD OFF

BECAUSE HE HAD BIBLES IN HIS

HOUSE, OUR ALLIES SAUDI ARABIA.

WELL, HERE IN AMERICA THE GROUP

CALLED THE TEA PARTY HAS BEEN

SUCCESSFUL IN WINNING ELECTIONS

BUT THIS NEW PARTY THAT OUR

GUST

FORMED IN AUSTRALIA THEY ARE

DOING THE SAME THING. THEY

WANT

TO PRESERVE THE CHRISTIAN

VALUES. THEY SAID IS THIS A

WHITE RACIST THING AND SAID

"I'M

BLACK". I WASN'T TALK ANY

LONGER. WENDY GRIFFIVE, OUR

DEAR FRIEND AND WONDERFUL NEWS

ANCHOR AND GARY AND WENDY BUT

WENDY IS THE HOST OF THIS ONE

AND GARY LANE, YEAH.

CATCH THE FIRE MINISTRIES

FORM THE NEW AUSTRALIAN PARTY

CALLED "RISE UP AUSTRALIA".

MANY OF THE MEMBERS ARE

CHRISTIANS AND GOAL IS TO

PROTECT FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND

THEIR HERITAGE. HE STARTED THE

PARTY IN 2011, THE ANNIVERSARY

OF HIS COURT CASE. HE AND

ANOTHER MAN STARTED THIS AND HE

SAYS LIVES ARE BEING

TRANSFORMED

AT WEEKLY PRAYER MEETINGS NOW

HELD IN MORE THAN 75 AUSTRALIAN

CITIES.

THESE GROUPS ARE FOCUSED ON

PRAYING AND REVOLUTION FOR

NATIONAL REF FORMATION IS WHAT

WE'RE LOOKING FOR AND I CAN

SMELL THE FRAIGANCE OF THE

RAIN.

I KNOW AUSTRALIA WILL COME TO

JESUS.

AND THEY WILL TRANSFORM THE

SOCIETY AND NOT ONLY SPENDING

MORE TIME ON THEIR KNEES BUT IN

THE VOTING BOOTHS.

THE PASTOR JOINS US NOW.

DANNY, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

THANK YOU. IT'S GOOD TO BE

HERE.

WHY ARE YOU AGAINST

MULTICULTURALISM.

THERE ARE ZONES IN EUROPE

AND

THEY GET BEATEN UP. --

[INAUDIBLE] OF A NATION. THE

DUTCH PARLIAMENT PASSED

LEGISLATION AND IF YOU COME TO

HOLLAND LEARN THE LANGUAGE AND

THEN DON'T COME AND WE

UNDERSTAND THOSE RIGHTS AND

KEEP

AUSTRALIAN AUSTRALIAN. IF YOU

LIKE BECOME AUSTRALIAN AND

OTHERWISE DON'T COME. WE SPEAK

ENGLISH AND IT'S THE MAIN

LANGUAGE AND MULTI-CULTURALLISM

IS A GATEWAY TO ISLAM AND

THEIR LAW.

YOU FACED DEATH THREATS.

TELL US ABOUT THAT.

I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD GET

DEATH THREATS IN AUSTRALIA AND

I

HAD CALLS THAT SAID THEY WERE

GOING TO KILL ME IF I DIDN'T

BACK OFF AND I TOOK A STAND AND

I WASN'T GOING TO APOLOGIZE AND

THEY TRACKED ME TO MY OFFICE

AND

I SAID I'M GOING THROUGH WITH

OH MY

GOODNESS.

SO SMUGGLING BIBLES IS AN

OFFENSE. I JUMPED OFF MY BED

AND LOOKED IN THE FRONT DOOR

THROUGH THE SPY HOLE AND 20

SOLDIERS WITH GUNS BUT SITTING

ON THE TABLE WERE 400 BIBLES. I

DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO DO ANYTHING

WITH IT. I FROZE. FEAR

GRIPPED

MY HEART. I REMEMBER HOW I

FELT

AND I SHOUTED OUT "JESUS WHERE

ARE YOU" AND SATIN WAS TELLING

ME "THIS IS THE LAST TIME YOU

WILL SEE YOUR FAMILY. YOU WILL

BE BEHEADED AND YOUR WIFE WILL

BE RAPED AND YOUR

CHILDREN WILL BE TAKEN. MY

BLOOD IS ON YOUR DOOR POST, NO

ONE NOT AUTHORIZED CAN COME

INTO

YOUR HOME. OPEN THE DOOR AND

FACE THIS ENEMY. IT'S NOT

FLESH

AND BLOOD. IT'S PRINCIPLES AND

POWER AND DARKNESS. WHEN I

HEARD THESE I WAS ENCOURAGED.

MY WIFE AND KIDS WERE CRYING

AND

GAVE THEM A KISS AND LORD I

DEVOTE MY FAMILY. THERE WAS

THE

HEAD OF THE UNIT IN FRONT OF ME

AND LOOK IN HIS EYES AND

COMMAND

THE DEMONS TO LEAVE. WHEN YOU

CAST OUT EVIL SPIRITS YOU LOOK

IN THE EYES AND THAT'S THE DOOR

WAY. I STARTED SAYING "HOW

DARE

YOU SATIN COME INTO MY HOUSE.

HOW DARE YOU COME INTO MY

FAMILY. YOU GET OUT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME". WHAT IS

INTERESTING IS 30 SECONDS WENT

BY AND NOT A WORD SPOKEN.

6060S

AND NOT A WORD SPOKEN.

JUST STARING.

JUST STARING.

I CONFUSED THE ENEMY AND HE

CANNOT REMEMBER WHY HE CAME TO

THE HOUSE. I WANTED TO SHOUT

HALLELUIAH BUT I KEPT QUIET AND

THEN THE GUY GOES (.

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

AND THAT MEANS GIVE ME

IDENTIFICATION. HE TAKES IT

AND

LOOKS AT IT AND THEN HE LOOKS

AT

THE WHOLE GROUP WITH HIM, THE

SOLDIERS. HE LOOKS BACK AT ME

AND SEEMS LIKE HE'S IN

CONFUSION

AND LOOKING AT THEM AND ME AND

BY THIS TIME I REALIZED SURELY

THE LORD HAS CONFUSED THIS GUY

AS USUAL EVERY WEDNESDAY I WENT

AND STONE WITH BIG ROCKS. THEY

DID STONE ME TOO THAT DAY.

THANK GOD I DIDN'T GET INJURED.

I HAD A MEETING AND FINISHED

THE

MEETING AND PEOPLE WERE FREE

AND

REVOICING AND I WAS RIDING AND

CERTAINLY CONFRONTED WITH FOUR

MEN. THEY JUMPED OUT EACH

CARRYING A SWORD IN THEIR HAND.

I SHOULD HAVE SHUN THE

MOTORCYCLE AROUND AND GO INTO

THE OTHER DIRECTION AND INSTEAD

I WENT RODE RIGHT INTO THEM AND

WORSHIPING THE LORD AND I

REMEMBER THE GUYS LIFTED THE

SWORDS AND VIOLENTLY SWUNG AT

MY

NECK. I REMEMBER DUCKING

SLIGHTLY BUT REMEMBER SHOUTING

"JESUS". IT DIDN'T TOUCH ME

AND

WITHIN SECONDS I HAD TWO OTHER

GUYS DO THE SAME AND BROUGHT

THE

SWORDS TO MY NECK. IT DIDN'T

TOUCH ME EITHER. I LOOKED IN

THE SIDE MIRROR AND SEEING THE

GUYS HOLDING THE SWORDS. I

RODE

HOME WORSHIPING THE LORD AND

I'M

STILL ALIVE. I WENT HOME AT

5:00 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING AND

SOMEONE WAS BANGING MY DOOR, SO

I OPENED THE DOOR AND THE WOMAN

WHERE I HAD THE MEETING AND

DANCING AND HALLELUIAH,

HALLELUIAH AND HOLD ON. IS

THIS

A DREAM? 5:00 O'CLOCK IN THE

MORNING A WOMAN DANCING AT YOUR

DOOR AND I BLUSHED MY EYES AND

ASK "ARE YOU REAL? WHAT ARE

YOU

DOING HERE?" . SHE SAID "THE

WHOLE VILLAGE IS AWAKE". WHAT

DO YOU MEAN? THE MEN THAT

TRIED

TO KILL YOU AND SHOUTED FOR

MERCY AND WORSHIPED ME AND SAID

"WE DIDN'T WANT TO KILL HIM.

BUT WE WERE GIVEN MONEY. WE

BROUGHT THE SWORDS ON THE NECK

AND THIS HUGE MAN JUMPED FROM

BEHIND AND GRABBED THE SWORDS.

WE COULDN'T MOVE. WE TURNED

AROUND TO ATTACK THE PEOPLE

THAT

HELD US. THIS STRANGE MAN

DISAPPEARED IN THE AIR". THE

NEXT DAY THE LORD SAID "SON,

YOU

HONORED ME AND ABLE TO LAY YOUR

LIFE DOWN AND I SENT YOU ANGELS

AND HALLELUIAH. THE MEN WERE

TERRIFIED AND TOLD THE VILLAGE

IF YOU DO IT AGAIN WE WILL

PERSONALLY ATTACK YOU BECAUSE

IT'S A DANGEROUS GOD.

COME ON BROTHER. I AM

WORKED

UP AND I AM MAD THE INTERVIEW

STOPPED.

I WANTED IT LONGER BUT HE

NEEDED A BREAK. INCREDIBLE.

FANTASTIC.

HE WAS ATTACKED IN AUSTRALIA

AND BROUGHT A LAWSUIT AND WON

AND NATIONWIDE PUBLICITY.

HOW DO YOU SEE STORIES LIKE

THAT AND NOT SEE THE POWER OF

GOD. COME ON SAY SOMETHING

BECAUSE I AM ALL WORKED UP.

I WILL SAY SOMETHING AND --

HE IS GREAT THOUGH.

YES, YES.

CAN AND DOES DO FOR THOSE

THAT SERVE HIM. OUR GOD IS

REAL.

HE IS.

WELL, STILL AHEAD WE'RE

GOING

TO CONTINUE OUR VOICE --

OF HOME -- SERIES.

SINGLE PARENTING IS

DIFFERENT

SIMPLY BECAUSE THE STAKES ARE

HIGHER.

WE WILL TELL YOU THE DOS AND

DON'TS ABOUT DATING AFTER

DIVORCE SO DON'T GO AWAY.

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING

GOING ON AROUND HERE. WHEN

MOST

PEOPLE HAVE GONE HOME MY WORK

IS

JUST BEGINING.

THERE IS A SCRIPT. THANKS

FOR WORKING ON IT.

I SPEND ALL EVENING PUTTING

THE SCRIPTS TOGETHER SO YOU CAN

WATCH THEM. TIME IS OF THE

ESSENCE. WE HAVE TO GET IT ON

THE AIR. WHEN I LEAVE AT NIGHT

I FEEL GREAT I PUT TOGETHER A

STORY FROM THE CHRISTIAN

PERSPECTIVE. I AM GUS AND A

NEWS EDITOR AND I WORK AT CBN.

AND WELCOME BACK TO THE "THE

700 CLUB". A VIRGINIA PASTOR

HAS BEEN CONVICTED OF HELPING A

WOMAN FLEE THE COUNTRY FOR

THREE

YEARS. LISA MILLER WAS ON THE

BRINK OF GIVING UP CUSTODY TO

HER FORMER LESBIAN PARTNER AND

SHE BECAME A CHRISTIAN AND LEAD

TO THE CUSTODY BATTLE WITH THE

HELP HEAR PASTOR. STARTED THE

MARCH OF LIFE IN 1974 AND INTO

THE WELL ATTENDED PEACEFUL

PROTEST IN WASHINGTON EACH

YEAR.

TONY PERKINS SAID NELLY LEAD A

LIFE OF SERVICE TO THE UNBORN

AND CALLED HER A TIRELESS

DEFENDER OF THE UNBORN. YOU

CAN

HEAR ABOUT HER AMAZING LIFE AND

BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE

WWW.CBN.COM. STAY TUNED PAT

AND

KRISTI WILL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

.

WELL, IN MANY PARTS OF

INDIA IT'S HARD TO

FIND DRINKING WATER AND THIS

FAMILY PRAYED FOR HELP.

IN THIS VILLAGE EVERY DROP

OF

WATER IS PRECIOUS . THEY MADE

SURE NOT TO WASTE ANY OF YOU IT.

IT LOOK A LOT OF WATER TO

GET

THE WATER AND WE RECYCLED IT

WHENEVER POSSIBLE AND COLLECTED

THE WATER AND USED THAT WATER

TO

WASH THE UTENSILS AND CLOTHES.

THE NEAREST WATER SOURCE WAS

2 MILES AWAY SO THEY CAME UP

WITH A WAY TO TRANSPORT LARGE

AMOUNTS OF WATER.

MY CHILDREN USED A WAGON TO

PULL THE WATER CONTAINER BUT IT

WAS DIFFICULT TO DO EVERYDAY

ESPECIALLY SINCE HALF THE WAY

IS

ON DIRT ROADS.

BUT THEY FACED AN EVEN

BIGGER

PROBLEM, THE WATER WASN'T CLEAN.

THE WATER SOURCE IS RIGHT

NEXT TO A CESSPOOL. OUR

CHILDREN OFTEN GOT SICK AND

SOME

DIED AFTER DRINKING THE WATER.

THEY SHARED THE PROBLEMS

WITH

A LOCAL PASTOR WHO VISITED

THEIR

HOME.

HE TOLD US ABOUT JESUS AND

PRAYED WHEN MY SON WAS SICK AND

ENCOURAGED US TO PRAY FOR WATER

CLOSE TO OUR HOME.

EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE HINDU

THEY PRAYED TO JESUS FOR HELP

AND THE PASTOR CONTACTED THE

CBN

TEAM AND IT WASN'T TIME BEFORE

THEY ARRIVED IN THE VILLAGE.

AS AN ANSWER TO THE PRAYER

CBN CAME TO THE VILLAGE AND

AFTER SEEING HOW MUCH GOD LOVES

US WE ACCEPTED JESUS AS OUR

SAVOR AND BOT BAPTIZED AND WE

THANK EVERYONE FOR MAKING THIS

POSSIBLE.

HOW CAN YOU NOT HELP, HOW

CAN

YOU NOT ANSWER SOMEONE'S CRY?

HOW CAN YOU NOT GIVE TO

SOMEONE?

YOU HAVE TO. IF THERE IS A

NEED

YOU HAVE TO MEET THAT NEED AND

CAN I TELL YOU SO MANY OF YOU

ARE AND THANK YOU SO MUCH, BUT

IF YOU'RE SITTING THERE AND

WATCHING THAT STORY AND SAY "I

HAVE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I

HAVE TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND

CHANGE SOMEONE'S LIFE AND

PROVIDE WATER TO THEM". THEN

DO

IT. IT'S A 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH, AND YOU CANNOT JUST

CHANGE ONE PERSON'S LIFE. YOU

WILL CHANGE AN ENTIRE VILLAGE'S

LIFE AND YOU WILL GIVE THEM NOT

ONLY THE WATER TO DRINK BUT THE

LIVING WATER AND THAT IS JESUS

CHRIST AND HOW COOL IS THAT?

JOIN US AND BECOME A "THE 700

CLUB" PARTNER AND CALL

1-800-759-0700 AND WHEN YOU DO

WE WILL GIVE YOU THE

THREE BLESSINGS AND I AM NOT

GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT THEY ARE

SO YOU HAVE TO CALL. WE WILL

PUT THIS IN YOUR HAND. LIFE

CHANGING I TELL YOU AND PICK UP

THE PHONE OR LOG ON TO

WWW.CBN.COM AND JOIN US. NEXT

UP IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A

SPOUSE MAKE SURE THEY DO THIS

ONE THING.

YOU WILL SEE MORE DEEPLY

INTO

THE HEART OF ANOTHER PERSON,

WHO

THEY REALLY ARE, WHEN YOU

LISTEN

THEM TALK TO GOD BECAUSE IF YOU

CAN'T CONNECT THERE NOTHING

ELSE

REALLY MATTERS.

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO

CONTINUE

OUR VOICE OF HOPE SERIES AFTER

THIS.

WHEN THE MARKET CRASHED I

WAS

ABOUT $6 MILLION IN DEBT. I

THINK YOU KNOW GOD COULD BRING

A

MESSAGE FROM THIS MESS IF HE

WANTS TO. I REALLY BELIEVE WHO

GOD HAS SHOWN ME AND TIME OF

NEED IS ACTUALLY THE BEST TIME

TO GIVE. HE TAUGHT ME SO MUCH

ABOUT HIS GRACE, HIS FAVOR AND

UNDESERVED BLESSING. GOD WANTS

TO BLESS US WHEN WE GIVE TO HIM.

.

IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN SINGLE

RAISE YOUR HAND. ALL RIGHT.

PUT IT DOWN. HAVE YOU EVER

THOUGHT I HAVE BEEN PRAYING UP

A

STORM TO MEET THAT SPECIAL

PERSON, BUT HOW DO I MEET

SOMEONE AND IF YOU MEET SOMEONE

THAT DOESN'T MEASURE UP HOW DO

YOU NOT SETTLE FOR SOMEONE

AFTER

YOU WAITED SO LONG FOR THE ONE,

AND WHAT IF YOU HAVE KIDS?

WHAT

DO YOU DO? HOW DO YOU DATE AS

A

SINGLE PARENT? DO THEY COME

WITH YOU? DO THEY STAY AT

HOME?

BOTTOM LINE THERE IS HOPE.

JOIN

US EVERY WEDNESDAY AT "THE 700

CLUB" FOR A NEW SERIES CALL THE

VOICE OF HOPE. YOU'RE GOING TO

LOVE IT.

TO SEE THIS WEEK'S MOST

VIEWED STORY GO TO WWW.CBN.COM.

WELL, FINDING THE RIGHT ONE

CAN BE HARD ENOUGH BUT FINDING

THE RIGHT ONE AFTER YOU TELL

THEM YOU HAVE A KID AT HOME AND

EX AROUND THE CORNER CAN BE

IMPOSSIBLE AND IN THIS SERIES

WE

TALKED ABOUT THE RIGHT WAY, THE

WRONG WAY TO DATE WHEN YOU'RE A

SINGLE PARENT. TAKE A LOOK.

WHEN PEOPLE GET MARRIED AND

SAY "I DO" EVERY PERSON SAYS

IT

THAT IT'S FOR LIFE AND NO ONE

EXPECTS TO GO THROUGH A DIVORCE

AND HAVE DIFFERENT THINGS

HAPPEN

IN YOUR LIFE WHERE YOU END UP

ALONE, SO MY QUESTION IS THIS:

HOW CAN SINGLE PARENTS DATE AND

FIND

COMPLETION?

GOD IS GOING TO USE THIS TO

MOLD YOU AND REFINE YOU INTO

THE

IMAGE OF JESUS AND DEEPEN HIS

TRUST AND WHETHER THAT IS

STAYING SINGLE AND HOW DO I

DATE

AND COME FORWARD WITH WISDOM,

WHATEVER THAT SCENARIO IS.

TRUST IN THE LORD.

BEFORE WE TALK ABOUT THAT WE

HAVE TO DISCUSS THE MOTIVE.

THERE IS A PARENTAL MOTIVE,

PARENTAL HEART. THAT'S THE

PART

THAT LOOKS AT YOUR CHILD AND

SAYS I WANT MORE FOR THEM AND A

DAD OR MOM WHETHER THAT CASE

MAYBE AND THE PART THAT FEELS.

LONELINESS AND WANTS THAT

FULFILLED AND YOU'RE LIVING

LIFE

AND WALKING IT OUT AND SOMEBODY

COULD COME INTO MY LIFE. THEY

HAVE TO BE REALLY GOOD FOR ME

TO

TAKE THAT RISK AND GO DOWN THAT

ROAD. I THINK THAT'S WHERE WE

WANT SINGLE PARENTS TO BE IN

THAT PLACE OF CONTENTMENT AND

WALKING WITH GOD.

IS THERE A RIGHT AND WRONG

TIME TO DATE AS A SINGLE PARENT?

I THINK THE WRONG TIME IS

WHEN YOU NEED TO DATE. WHEN

YOU'RE HUNGRY LOOKING FOR FOOD

YOU ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO WHATEVER

COMES YOUR WAY AND NOT

DISCERNING AT THAT TIME AND

NEAR

THE END OF A RELATIONSHIP AND

DEATH, DIVORCE AND WHATEVER IT

IS.

TALKING ABOUT THE REBOUND.

YEAH AND IF YOU ARE DATING

SOMEONE IN A QUICK TURN AROUND

YOU NEED TO GIVE THEM THE GRACE

TO HEAL AND DEAL WITH THAT. A

SINGLE PARENT IS DIFFERENT THAN

OTHERS.

LET'S TALK ABOUT TRUST. I

MAY LOVE AGAIN BUT NOT TRUST

NEVER AGAIN. WHAT DO YOU SAY

TO

THAT PERSON.

THAT IS UNDERSTANDABLE. YOU

HAVE PAIN IN YOUR LIFE AND

WOUNDS ON YOUR HEART AND THE

CLOSER YOU GO INTO A

RELATIONSHIP YOU RECOGNIZE

TRUST

ISSUES AND YOU FIND YOURSELF I

AM HOLDING BACK. I AM GUARDED.

I AM CAUTIOUS. THE RESEARCH

THAT WE DID FOUND THAT THE FEAR

OF ANOTHER BREAK UP, THE FEAR

THAT THIS RELATIONSHIP WILL NOT

LAST AND WAS ONE OF THE THINGS

IN WHETHER NEW RELATIONSHIPS

WERE SUCCESSFUL OR HORRIBLE SO

TAKE THAT TO GOD, TAKE THAT TO

WISE COUNSELORS AND RECOGNIZE

THAT HURT IN YOU WHERE THE FEAR

STEMS FROM. DEAL WITH IT, AND

UNTIL YOU DEAL WITH IT DON'T

MOVE INTO A NEW RELATIONSHIP.

BUT HERE'S THE THING I WANT TO

SAY TO SINGLE PARENTS. KIDS

THAT GROW UP IN SINGLE PARENT

HOMES DO AS WELL IN ACADEMIC

PERFORMANCE AND EMOTIONAL

STABILITY ET CETERA AS CHILDREN

IN STEP FAMILY HOMES.

WHEN DO YOU INTRODUCE THAT

CHILD AT THE BEGINNING? AT THE

BEGINNING OR WHEN?

WHEN YOU GET PAST THE

PLEASANT REES OF THE FEW DATES

AND YOU WANT TO PURSUE IT AND

SPEND MORE TIME WITH A GOOD

TIME

TO INTRODUCE THEM. DON'T

EXPOSE

THE CHILDREN A TREMENDOUS

AMOUNT

UNLESS YOU FEEL THERE IS

SOMETHING THERE AND IT'S BASED

ON YOUR ASSESSMENT.

WHAT IF THE KIDS ARE "I HATE

HIM. I HATE HER".

DON'T WORRY. THEY'RE HAVE A

MEASURE OF PANIC AND IF YOU

DATE

YOU CAN'T GET TOGETHER WITH THE

FATHER AND AS SOON AS THEY FEEL

THEY LOST YOU TO THIS LOVE

INTEREST AND THEY WILL NEVER

ACCEPT HIM AND YOU HAVE ANOTHER

PROBLEM AND CHASE THE FEAR AND

SEE WHAT IS BEHIND IT AND

ENGAGE

IN CONVERSATION. PEOPLE ASKED

ME SHOULD KIDS DETERMINE

WHETHER

YOU CONTINUE DATING OR GET

MARRIED, AND NO YOU'RE THE

PARENT, THE ADULT AND YOU GET

TO

MAKE THAT DECISION, BUT IT'S

UNWISE TO IGNORE WHAT YOU'RE

HEARING THEM. WHAT IF IT'S A

GREAT WAY TO ENGAGE YOUR KIDS

AND ONCE YOU START DATING AND

SAY "WHAT IF I DATE THIS PERSON

FOR EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME AND

JUST DATED NO ONE ELSE? WHAT

IF

WE HUNG OUT? WHAT IF SHE

BROUGHT THE KIDS OVER AND SPEND

TIME AT THE PARK? HOW DO YOU

FEEL ABOUT THAT?" . EVERY

TIME

YOU DO THAT YOU ARE GAUGING

YOUR

RELATIONSHIP.

AND THE DATING PROCESS AND

THE SPIRIT AND PRAYING

CONSTANTLY AND JUST BEING LIKE

"LORD SHOW ME STUFF THAT YOU

SEE

THAT I DON'T SEE". SO WHAT ARE

TOOLS THAT WE CAN USE FOR THE

DATING PROCESS AS A SINGLE

PARENT?

FIRST OF ALL BECAUSE YOU

LOVE

YOUR KIDS AND YOU WANT THEM TO

LOVE THE LORD DON'T YOU DARE

DATE SOMEONE THAT DON'T BELIEVE

IN THE LORD WITH THEIR WHOLE

HEART.

COME ON BROTHER. POINT

NUMBER ONE.

AND DO THINGS THAT CONNECT

YOU AND YOUR VALUES WITH EACH

OTHER AND PRAY ABOUT WHETHER

YOU

SHOULD DATE MORE, PRAY ABOUT

YOUR JOB, PRAY ABOUT YOUR KIDS

AND YOU WILL SEE MORE DEEPLY

INTO THE HEART OF ANOTHER

PERSON, WHO THEY REALLY ARE,

WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THEM TALKING

TO GOD. YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT

WHAT MAKES THEM TICK AND THEIR

FEARS AND WORRIES AND YOU WILL

UNDERSTAND THEIR SOUL SO MUCH

BETTER WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THEM

PRAY AND ATTENDING BIBLE STUDY

AND FELLOWSHIP TOGETHER IT'S

ABOUT FINDING WHETHER YOUR

VALUES ARE A FIT AND LEARNING

THEIR HEART BECAUSE IF YOU

CAN'T

CONNECT THERE NOTHING ELSE

REALLY MATTERS AND I WANT

SINGLE

PARENTS TO KNOW DATING AND

DATING WELL IS VERY IMPORTANT,

NOT ONLY FOR YOU BUT ESPECIALLY

FOR YOUR KIDS. I THINK YOU

SIMPLY PRAY THE DATERS PRAYER

EVERYDAY.

WHICH IS?

GOD, I AM YOURS. LEAD ME IN

YOUR WILL ACCORDING TO YOUR

KINGDOM AND IF YOU BRING

SOMEBODY IN MY LIFE AND WALK

ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL AND HELP

ME AND WE CAN SHARE A LIFE

TOGETHER AND DON'T LET ME MISS

THAT GOD. LET ME SEE THAT

PERSON, AND IF YOU DON'T BRING

SOMEBODY INTO MY LIFE LET ME

TRUST YOUR PROVISION FOR ME.

NOW, THAT'S JUST A PLACE OF

OPENNESS AND YOU TRUST GOD TO

FILL IT AND DIRECT, AND I

BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT HE IS REALLY

AFTER.

I TELL YOU WHAT EVEN THOUGH

I

OF WORKING ON THIS SERIES I SIT

AND JUST LIKE YOU I WATCH IT

AND

I GET MORE INFORMATION AND MORE

NUGGETS. I HAVE TO TELL YOU

ONE

THING REAL QUICK. EACH OF THE

EXPERTS ON THE SERIES AND WHO

YOU JUST HEARD AND HE'S A

CHRISTIAN FAMILY COUNSELOR AND

COME OUT WITH A BOOK "DATING

FOR

SINGLE PARENTS". I THINK IT'S

IT BUT ALL THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE

SEEN. THEY ALL HAVE BOOKS OR

JUST ABOUT TO WRITE A BOOK AND

WHEN YOU LOG ON TO WWW.CBN.COM

YOU CAN SEE THE INTERVIEW AGAIN

BUT MANY OF THEM ARE BLOGGING

SO

YOU CAN GET INFORMATION ON

DIFFERENT ADVICE FROM THEM, AND

YOU CAN ALSO SEE WHERE THEIR

BOOKS ARE AND GO TO WWW.CBN.COM

AND CLICK ON THE VOICE OF HOPE

LOGO. THERE IT IS AND SPEAKS

OF

ENCOURAGEMENT THIS IS A SERIES

THAT WILL CONTINUE AND WHAT ARE

THINGS YOU WANT US TO TALK

ABOUT, AND BASED UPON THE

EMAILS

THAT YOU SEND AND I WILL PRAY

ABOUT IT AND LORD WILLING

THEY'RE THE TOPICS WE'RE GOING

TO JUMP INTO. WHY? BECAUSE

THIS IS THE SEASON TO BUILD UP

CHRIST AND A GREATER REFLECTION

OF WHO GOD IS. PAT, ARE YOU

READY FOR SOME QUESTIONS?

I DON'T KNOW. YOU'RE THE

EXPERT ON THE SINGLE PARENT

STUFF.

ALL RIGHT. WE WILL WORK

TOGETHER. ARE YOU READY? "I

AM

A SINGLE MOM AND I LOVE MY

SINGLENESS AND UNDERSTANDING MY

LIFE'S PURPOSE FROM GOD AND

RECENTLY I AM BOMBARDED WITH

SINGLE EVENTS AND AT CHURCH AND

DV D AND NEW PROGRAM AT CHURCH

AND NOW YOU'RE DOING THIS WHOLE

SERIES. DO YOU THINK THIS IS A

COINCIDENCE OR DO YOU THINK GOD

IS PREPARING ME FOR MARRIAGE?

I DON'T THINK IT HAS

ANYTHING

TO DO WITH PREPARING YOU FOR

MARRIAGE. NOW LISTEN IF YOU'RE

HAPPY AS SINGLE WHAT DOES PAUL

SAY "THE PERSON THAT IS SINGLE

HONORS THE LORD". JESUS IS

FIRST. IF YOU GET MARRIED YOU

HAVE TO DEFER TO YOUR HUSBAND,

AND I THINK OF THESE WOMEN WHO

TAKE OVER AND MAKE THE

DECISIONS

AND THEIR HUSBAND IS OFF AT WAR

AND HE COMES BACK AND A BIG

BURLY TROOPER AND HE HAS

DEMANDS

AND NEEDS AND WANTS THE KIDS TO

DO WHAT THEY WANT AND YOU HAVE

FIGHTS AND "DON'T HIT JOHNNY SO

HARD. BE NICE TO HIM. THIS

ISN'T THE WAY TO RAISE A KID"

AND YOU'RE FIGHTING. IF YOU'RE

HAPPY SINGLE ENJOY YOUR LIFE

AND

LIVE FOR THE LORD. WE'RE NOT

TRYING TO SET YOU UP HERE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SAYING

THAT PAT. YOU SAID IT -- HIGH

FIVE ME. HIT IT. THERE YOU

GO.

THAT'S IT. LISTEN THIS SERIES

IS NOT TO GET YOU TO DATE OR

MAKE YOU DATE OR FIND A

HUSBAND.

NO. THIS SERIES IS 100% ABOUT

BRINGING YOU TO THAT PLACE

WHERE

YOU'RE COMPLETE IN GOD AND ALL

THOSE ISSUES THAT YOU BRING

BEFORE THE LORD SO IF YOU

CHOOSE

TO GET MARRIED YOU'RE A GOOD

GIFT. OKAY. I START PREACHING

AND I HAVE TO BRING IT BACK.

DON'T PREACH.

I KNOW. HOW DO YOU

RECOMMEND

I BALANCE MY TIME BETWEEN MY

BOYFRIEND AND MY KIDS. I LOVE

MY KIDS BUT I WANT TO SPEND

TIME

WITH MY BOYFRIEND. WHAT DO YOU

THINK PAT?

I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN THIS

SITUATION. YOU HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP -- IF YOU'RE

MARRIED HOW DO YOU BALANCE THE

TIME BETWEEN YOUR SPOUSE AND

THE

CHILDREN? THE CHILDREN HAVE

THEIR LITTLE WORLD AND THEY DO

THEIR THING AND YOU HAVE TIME

FOR YOUR HUSBAND AND WIFE.

IT'S

THE SAME THING WITH YOUR

BOYFRIEND.

CAN I JUMP IN ON THIS ONE

BECAUSE I HAVE EXPERIENCED IT?

IT'S STICKY AND IN TERMS OF

RELATIONSHIPS THERE IS A

TRANSITION PERIOD AND IF YOU'RE

A SINGLE PARENT AND THE KID IS

USED TO THAT ATTENTION AND

ANYONE THAT COMES IN THERE IS A

LITTLE JEALOUSLY.

I HATE TO BE PHYSICAL AND

THERE IS THE MATTER OF PHYSICAL

INTIMACY. IF YOU'RE MARRIED

IT'S PART OF THE DEAL. IF

YOU'RE NOT MARRIED --

YOU SHOULDN'T BE PART OF THE

DEAL.

THE GUY WANTS IT TO BE AND

THERE IS ALWAYS THAT TENSION

AND

I WANT TO DO THESE THINGS AND

NO, I CAN'T DO THAT.

YOU HAVE TO BE STRATEGIC.

HONEST AND WHEN YOU HAVE A

HOUSE

YOU HAVE TO BE STRATEGIC AND

SET

CERTAIN RULES AND DON'T ALLOW

THE PERSON IN THE HOUSE AND BE

OUTSIDE. IT'S TRUE. I KNOW

PAT

BUT IT'S TRUE.

COME IN FOR A CUP OF COFFEE

AND SIT ON THE SOFA AND LET ME

INTO SOMETHING COMFORTABLE AND

THERE YOU GO.

YOU HAVE A KID SITTING THERE.

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE IN

BED.

PAT, WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE

GIVING HOPE.

I AM GIVING THE TRUTH. IT'S

THE WAY IT IS. THAT IS THE

TENSION THAT COMES UP IN THESE

SITUATIONS.

THAT'S TRUE.

YOU HAVE THIS MAN COME INTO

YOUR LIFE -- I MEAN HE WANTS TO

MOVE ON.

YEAH, BUT IF HE'S A MAN OF

GOD AND GOD HE MAN HE WILL

HONOR

YOU AND NOT GO OVER THE

BOUNDARIES. READ THE SCRIPTURE.

YEAH. THIS DATING STUFF --

THE BIBLE DOESN'T HAVE MUCH

DATING BUSINESS.

YOU HAVE COURTSHIP. WELL,

YOU HAVE TO DATE EVENTUALLY --

ALL RIGHT. WE WILL CONTINUE

THIS.

THE PARENT DECIDED THIS IS

THE ONE YOU WILL GET MARRIED TO

AND HAVE A WEDDING. THEY

DIDN'T

HAVE THE DATEING.

I'M 40. MY PARENT IT'S

OKAY.

THAT'S ALL WE HAVE FOR TODAY.

HERE IS THE SCRIPTURE. THIS

IS REAL LOVE, NOT THAT WE LOVE

GOD BUT HE LOVES US AND SENT

HIS

SON AS A SACRIFICE TO TAKE AWAY

OUR SONS. BYE BYE.

ISN'T IT DIFFICULT TO BE A

CHRISTIAN AND SINGLE THESE

DAYS?

AND WOULDN'T IT BE GOOD TO SEE

THE ISSUES THAT SINGLES FACE

AND

GET ENCOURAGEMENT AND HOPE?

CHECK IT OUT.

WE ASK THE WRONG QUESTIONS

WHEN WE TALK TO PEOPLE. THE

QUESTION WE ASK IS "DO YOU LOVE

ME?" . THAT'S THE WRONG

QUESTION. THE QUESTION SHOULD

BE "DO YOU LOVE YOU?" .

I DON'T CARE IF HE'S THE

NICEST GUY ON THE PLANNENT AND

NOT SUBMITTED TO HIS LORD

YOU'RE A TOY.

AND SOME REASONS I SAY I

WANT

TO BE MARRIED FOR THE WRONG

REASON.

JUICY; RIGHT? THAT'S THE
