Watch the 700 Club Canada for August 20, 2012. Read Transcript



HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.


AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON.


THANKS FOR JOINING US TODAY.


LAURA LYNN, KIDS ARE THE


FUNNIEST, I GET AN OPPORTUNITY


TO HELP ABOUT 60,000 KIDS ACROSS


THE COUNTRY AND I LOVE THAT


CHILDREN ARE THE MOST HONEST,


THEY COME OUT WITH THINGS


THAT COME OUT OF LEFT FIELD AND


I LOVE THE POWER OF THE


IMAGINATION OF A CHILD.


YEAH, I KNOW, I CAN THINK OF


SOME FUNNY THINGS THAT MY KIDS


SAID WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG AND


IT'S COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE


TO SAY, THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT


THEY WERE SAYING.


I CAN'T PUT IT ON THE SHOW.


ON TODAY'S SHOW, WE FEATURE


STORIES THAT ARE OF CHILDREN AND


HOW THE LESSONS WE LEARN EARLY


IN LIFE STAY WITH US.


WE'LL FOLLOW AN


INVESTIGATIVE TEAM AS THEY


REPORT ON THE ILLEGAL MARRIAGES


OF YOUNG CHILDREN IN INDIA AND


CAPTURE THE HEART BREAK OF A


YOUNG GIRL AS SHE'S SEPARATED


FROM HER FAMILY.


ALSO YOU'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENED


WHEN TODD HOWARDSON, IN THE


AFTER MATH OF A HIGH SPEED


SHOOT OUT, NOT ONLY WILL YOU SEE


HOW TODD ESCAPED, BUT HOW GOD HD


TODD


ESCAPE THE PAIN OF A CHILDHOOD


SECRET.


AND I'LL BE BACK LATER WITH E


INTERVIEWS ON THE STREETS AS WE


FIND OUT WHAT YOU BELIEVE,


CANADA, TODAY MY INTERVIEW WITHA


PERSIAN GIRL WHO LEARNED A FEW S


ABOUT JESUS, BUT FIRST, SECRET


WEDDINGS OF CHILD BRIDES.


RAJASTHAN IS THE EPICENTER


OF INDIA'S CHILD MARRIAGE, MORE


THAN HALF OF THE GIRLS BORN IN


THIS STATE BECOME CHILD BRIDES


BEFORE THE AGE OF 15.


THE LIFE OF A CHILD BRIDE IS


VERY SAD.


PREN DOBBY IS STUDYING ITS


IMPACT ON THIS ON INDIAN SOCIET.


AS SHE GETS


EDUCATIONAL PERSPECTIVE, HER


LIFE BECOMES CHALLENGING.


MOST OF INDIA'S RURAL POOR


LIVE OFF LESS OF A DOLLAR A


DAY, SO MARRYING OFF A DAUGHTER


MEANS ONE LESS MOUTH TO FEED.


GIRLS ARE SEEN AS A


LIABILITY AND BURDEN, THE


GIRL'S FAMILY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR


PAYING THE DOWRY SO THE LONGER


THEY WAIT TO GET THE GIRL MARRID


OFF, THE MORE THEY HAVE TO PAY


THE FUTURE IN-LAWS.


APRIL AND MAY ARE POPULAR


MONTHS FOR MARRIAGES, THEY WILL


HOLD THOUSANDS OF MARRIAGES.


EVERY YEAR, YOU'LL SEE THE


IMAGES OF PARENTS HOLDING THEIR


CHILDREN, SOMETIMES AS YOUNG AS


4 OR 5 YEARS OLD IN THEIR LAP


AS THEY GET MARRIAGE.


INDIA FIRST INTRODUCED LAWS


AGAINST MARRIAGE BACK IN 1929, D


BACK THEN, THE LEGAL AGE FOR MAE


WAS SET AT 12, IT WAS EVENTUALLY


INCREASED TO 18 YEARS OLD IN


1978.


TO EVADE THE LAW, FAMILIES


WILL OFTEN PERFORM MARRIAGES


IN SECRET, USUALLY LATE AT NIGH,


IT'S SHORTLY AFTER 9:00 IN TE


EVENING, VERY BUSY STREETS AS


YOU CAN SEE BUT WHERE WE'RE


GOING IS INTO THE INTERIOR


VILLAGES OF THIS PART OF


RAJASTHAN.


OUTSIDERS ARE RARELY ALLOWED


TO ATTEND THESE CEREMONIES LET


ALONE FILM THEM.


RAJMA PATELL'S PARENTS MADE AN


EXCEPTION, GIVING US PERMISSIONO


FILM THEIR SON BUT ONLY THE NIGT


BEFORE HIS WEDDING.


I AM BECOMING A MAN TOMORROW.


HIS PARENTS INSIST HE'S 21


BUT HIS FRIENDS TOLD US OFF


CAMERA HE'S ONLY 10, HIS YOUNG


FACE COVERED IN TRADITIONAL


MAKE-UP, HE WEARS A SPECIAL


SUIT WITH FLASHING COLORED LIGH.


I WANT THE YOUNGSTERS IN MY


VILLAGE TO FOLLOW MY EXAMPLE.


THE WHOLE VILLAGE SPENDS THE


NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING DRINKIG


AND DANCING.


UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF


ALCOHOL, THESE DANCE RITUALS


BECOME SEXUALLY CHARGED, OFTEN


YOU WILL SEE YOUNG BOYS AND GIRS


CHIME IN.


OUR TEAM ISN'T ALLOWED TO


FILM PATELL'S BRIDE WHO IS


SAID TO BE NO MORE THAN 8 OR 9


YEARS OLD.


THE PARENTS ALWAYS LIE ABOUT


THE CHILD'S AGE, BECAUSE OF


CULTURE AND ECONOMIC REASONS,


THE PARENTS WILL MARRY THEIR


KIDS OFF AT A YOUNG AGE.


CBN NEWS, HOWEVER, IS ALLOWED


TO FILM VENA ASURE'S WEDDING, IT


TAKES PLACE DURING THE DAY WHICS


VERY UNCOMMON.


WE'VE BEEN PREPARING FOR


THIS WEDDING FOR ALMOST A YEAR.


VENA IS TRYING TO LOOK HER BT


AS SHE PREPARES TO TEETER DOWN E


AISLE OF HER HOUSE.


I HAVE INVITED THE ENTIRE


VILLAGE TO COME FOR THIS HAPPY


OCCASION.


BUT VENA IS ANYTHING BUT


HAPPY, IN BETWEEN COMBING HER


HAIR AND PUTTING ON JEWELRY,


SHE SOBS UNCONTROLLABLY, HER


FAMILY TRIES TO CONSOLE HER.


WE ASKED HER WHY SHE'S CRYING.


WHY IS SHE SAD?


SHE REFUSES TO TALK.


SHE HAS NO IDEA WHAT IT


MEANS TO BE A WIFE, HOW TO TAKE


CARE OF A FAMILY BUT BECAUSE


THIS HAS BEEN FORCED UPON HER,


SHE HAS TO GO ALONG WITH IT, I


THINK SHE'S A LITTLE SCARED.


VENA'S FAMILY INSISTS


THEIR DAUGHTER IS 18 BUT SHE


ALSO LOOKS 7 OR 8.


I ALSO GOT MARRIED VERY


YOUNG, SHE WILL ADJUST.


INDIA IS ONLY ONE OF MANY


COUNTRIES WHERE CHILD MARRIAGES


ARE THRIVING, EACH YEAR, SOME


10 MILLION GIRLS ARE MARRIED


BEFORE THEY TURN 18.


THE PRACTICE IS


MOST COMMON IN AFRICA, THE


MIDDLE EAST AND SOUTH ASIA.


THE GIRL IS MARRIED AND


MOVES IN WITH THE HUSBAND'S


FAMILY, SHE IS NOT ALLOWED TO


GO TO SCHOOL AND GET AN


EDUCATION, AS SOON AS SHE


REACHES PUBERTY, HE IS EXPECTED


TO HAVE CHILDREN.


AND RESEARCH SHOWS THAT GIRL


BRIDES ARE MORE LIKELY TO DIE


DURING PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH


AND LOSE THEIR CHILD BEFORE IT


IS BORN, BE INFECTED WITH HIV,


HAVE MULTIPLE BIRDS AND UNDERGO


MULTIPLE ABORTIONS.


HER HUSBAND ARRIVES ON THE BUS


WITH HIS SIDE OF THE FAMILY,


WEARING A SPECIAL CROWN WITH


SPECIAL LIGHTS, HE MAKES A


PROCESSION OF VILLAGES, HIS


FACE IS PARTIALLY COVERED BY A


MULTICOLORED MASK THAT HE WILL


WEAR UNTIL THE CEREMONY IS


OVER, HE TOO LOOKS VERY YOUNG


BUT HIS FAMILY INSISTS HE IS


ABOUT THE LEGAL AGE OF MARRIAGE.


I AM READY TO BE A HUSBAND.


VENA IS READY TO MAKE


HER APPEARANCE, BUT INSTEAD OF


WALKING DOWN THE COURTYARD, SHE


HAS TO BE CARRIED IN BY HER


FATHER.


WEAK AND EXHAUSTED, SHE IS


OVERCOME WITH EMOTIONS.


SHE SOBS THROUGH THE TWO HOUR


CEREMONY.


IT IS HEART BREAKING TO


WATCH.


THESE ARE CHILDREN, LITTLE


CHILDREN GETTING MARRIED.


GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,


RAJASTHAN, INDIA.


YOU KNOW, LAURA LYNN, I HAD


THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE IN


GENIAH, INDIA FIRST HAND WHAT'S


GOING ON WITH THE ARRANGED


MARRIAGES, AND YOU KNOW, WE IN


WESTERN CIVILIZATION DO THINGS


COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND IT IS


GOING ON SO WE CAN'T BURY OUR


HEADS BUT IT REMINDS US THAT WE


NEED TO PRAY FOR THEM.


WELL, WE CERTAINLY DO, BRIAN.


I JUST CAN'T FATHOM THE MINDSET


BUT OF COURSE WE DON'T LIVE


THERE, IT'S HARD FOR US TO EVER


UNDERSTAND, YOUR DAUGHTER, THAT


YOU WOULD BE HANDING HER OFF,


SHE'S 15.


THE ENEMY PLANTS SEEDS OF


DECEPTION AND EVIL.


WHEN THOSE SEEDS SPROUT,


WITHOUT JESUS, THEY TURN INTO


CHAOS, THAT'S PRETTY MUCH


WHAT'S HAPPENED.


UP NEXT, TODD HOWARDSON


DODGES BULLETS WHILE SPEEDING


DOWN THE HIGHWAY.


MY BACK GLASS BROKE AND I


KNEW THEY'RE NOT JUST TRYING TO


SCARE ME, THEY'RE TRYING TO


KILL ME.


TODD HOWARDSON HAD ROBBED


HIS DRUG DEALER AND NOW THE MAN


WAS SHOOTING AT TODD.


I REMEMBER THINKING, GOD,


THIS IS HOW I'M GOING TO DIE


AND I WAS WONDERING WHETHER I


WAS GOING TO FEEL THE GUNSHOT


AND FEEL THE PAIN BEFORE I


HEARD THE SHOT.


TODD STARTED USING DRUGS AT


AGE 13 TO ESCAPE A SHAMEFUL


SECRET.


THERE WAS NOBODY THERE TO


RESCUE ME, AND I CAN REMEMBER


LOOKING AROUND AND JUST FEELING


SO ALONE.


WHEN HE WAS 8, TODD HAD BEEN


PLAY NRG THE WOODS NEAR HIS


HOUSE.


HE DIDN'T KNOW A MAN HAD


FOLLOWED HIM THERE TO MOLEST


HIM.


I JUST REMEMBER HIM ASKING


ME TO DO CERTAIN THINGS AND I


DIDN'T -- I FELT WEIRD, I FELT


-- I GUESS YOU WOULD SAY DIRTY.


I HAD TO HAVE A CONFUSED LOOK


ON MY FACE, AND HE SAID, WELL,


DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, OR


SOMETHING LIKE THAT, AND I SAID


NO, I DON'T, AND SO HE SAID,


I'LL SHOW YOU.


TODD NEVER SAW THE MAN


AGAIN, BUT THE MEMORY OF THAT


DAY CONTINUED TO HAUNT HIM.


HE HAD RECURRING NIGHTMARES AS


A RESULT OF THE ABUSE.


A MAN THAT I COULD NEVER SEE


HIS FACE WAS TAKING ME OUT OF


MY HOUSE AND I WAS TRYING TO


SCREAM FOR HELP AND I COULDN'T.


SOUND WOULDN'T COME OUT.


FIVE YEARS LATER WHEN TODD


WAS 13, HIS PARENTS DIVORCED.


THAT SAME YEAR, HE STARTED


EXPERIMENTING WITH DRUGS AND


SEX.


AND I REMEMBER THINKING, I'M


NORMAL BECAUSE THERE WAS THAT


ADDED LEVEL OF SHAME WHEN I WAS


MOLESTED BECAUSE IT WAS A GUY.


TODD'S DRUG ADDICTION


ESCALATED.


HE BEGAN USING COCAINE,


INCLUDING CRACK.


THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT


I HAD FELT GOOD SINCE I COULD


REMEMBER.


BUT THE HIGH WAS ONLY


TEMPORARY.


TODD HAD ALWAYS BEEN CLOSE TO


HIS MOM, SO WHEN SHE DIED


UNEXPECTEDLY, TODD DECIDED TO


END HIS LIFE TOO.


I TOOK A RAZOR AND I SLIT MY


WRISTS AND THE NEXT THING YOU


KNOW, AFTER THEY STITCHED ME UP


AND TOLD ME HOW LUCKY I WAS TO


BE ALIVE, THEY PUT ME IN A


PSYCHIATRIC WARD AND THAT WAS


ANOTHER DARK TIME.


TODD WAS RELEASED TWO DAYS


LATER FROM THE HOSPITAL.


HE BEGAN WORKING AT A CALL


CENTER WHERE HE MET DANA.


WHEN SHE BECAME PREGNANT,


THEY MARRIED SIX MONTHS LATER.


SHE DIDN'T REALIZE THAT TODD


CONTINUED TO DO DRUGS.


WHEN TODD'S SON WAS BORN, HE


WENT COLD TURKEY.


I SAW HIS LITTLE FINGERS AND


TOES AND THE DOCTOR LET ME CUT


THE CORD, AND I REMEMBER


THINKING IF I EVER NEEDED A


REASON TO STAY CLEAN, THIS IS


IT.


BUT THE NAGGING DESIRE TO


USE COCAINE ALWAYS STAYED WITH


HIM.


ONE NIGHT HE GAVE IN AND WENT


ON AN 8 DAY DRUG BINGE, THAT'S


WHEN HIS WIFE DANA REALIZED HOW


MUCH OF A DRUG PROBLEM HE HAD.


HE EXPLAINED THERE WAS


COCAINE USE AND I HAD NEVER


BEEN AROUND THAT, I DIDN'T KNOW


ANYTHING ABOUT IT BUT HE


PROMISED IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN


AGAIN, HE WANTED US TO BE A


FAMILY AND CONTINUE IN OUR


MARRIAGE, OF COURSE I BELIEVED


HIM.


TODD DIDN'T KEEP HIS PROMISE


AND LOST HIS JOB AND AFTER


STEALING DRUGS FROM HIS DEALER,


HE ENDED UP IN A HIGH SPEED


CHASE WHERE HE ALMOST LOST HIS


LIFE.


I PRAYED THAT MY WIFE


WOULDN'T TELL MY CHILDREN HOW I


DIED.


IN FACT, TODD WASN'T EVEN


INJURED


YOU WOULD THINK THAT THAT


WOULD BE MY BOTTOM, YOU KNOW, I


JUST HAD A SHOOTOUT, GOD JUST


SPARED YOUR LIFE, AND YOU NEED


TO GET ON YOUR KNEES AND THANK


GOD AND GO GET STRAIGHTENED


OUT, BUT ALL I COULD THINK


ABOUT WAS MY NEXT HIT.


A FEW DAYS LATER, TODD WENT


TO A CRACK HOUSE TO GET HIGH


AGAIN, THE POLICE RAIDED THE


PLACE AND TODD WAS ARRESTED.


THE JUDGE SENTENCED HIM TO A


CHRISTIAN REHAB CENTER.


I GOT ON MY KNEES AND


STARTED TO PRAY AND STARTED


BEGGING GOD TO FORGIVE ME AND


HEAR MY PRAYERS, BEGGING HIM TO


TAKE THE PAIN AWAY.


I FELT HE REACHED DOWN AND I


FELT LIKE HE HUGGED ME AND I


FELT LIKE SUNSHINE WAS SHINING


ON ME, IT'S A WARM FEELING ALL


OVER



TODD ASKED GOD TO BE THE


SAVIOR OF HIS LIFE.


MY LIFE WAS WORTHLESS, HE


SAID MY LIFE WAS WORTH HIS SON,


SO TO HIM, IT WAS THE MOST


PRECIOUS THING ON EARTH, SO IT


WAS EASY AT THAT POINT, IT'S


THE DEAL.


TODD BEGAN READING THE WORD


EVERY DAY AND ASKED GOD TO


DELIVER HIM FROM HIS ADDICTIONS


FOR GOOD.


AND IT SEEMED LIKE GOD


REACHED DOWN WITH SCISSORS AND


CUT THAT THING THAT'S BEEN


CHASING ME SINCE I WAS 8 YEARS


OLD.


AND THEN TODD FELT LIKE GOD


WAS ASKING HIM TO DO SOMETHING


HE FELT HE COULD NEVER DO,


FORGIVE THE MAN THAT MOLESTED H.


GOD NEVER SAID THAT IT WAS,


WHAT THAT MAN DID FOR ME, JESUS


DIED FOR HIM TOO.


HE KNEW EVERYTHING THAT THAT


MAN WAS GOING TO DO AND HE


STILL DIED FOR HIM, AND SO I'VE


BEEN FORGIVEN A WHOLE LOT SO I


NEEDED TO FORGIVE.


TODD WAS IN REHAB FOR THREE


MONTHS, DANA ASKED HIM TO MOVE


BACK HOME.


I SEE MY HUSBAND AS A MAN


AFTER HIS OWN HEART AND I SEE


HIM AS A FATHER WHO CHOSE ARE


CHILDREN THE WAY TO GO.


I'M SO PROUD OF HIM.


WE ARE INCREDIBLY BLESSED AND I


COULD NEVER HAVE ENVISIONED MY


LIFE, WHAT IT IS TODAY.


THERE IS FREEDOM AND THERE'S


POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS.


WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS,


HE DIED FOR OUR SINS, HE DIDN'T


JUST DIE FOR THE LITTLE ONES,


HE DIED FOR ALL OF THEM, HE'S


OUR STORM, GOD, AND HE'S THE


GOD OF THE REDEEMED AND THE


MORE IMPOSSIBLE IT LOOKS, THE


MORE GLORY HE'S GOING TO GET.


I LOVE THAT PART OF THE


STORY WHERE TODD SAYS HE FELT


LIKE GOD GAVE HIM A HUG, HE


FINALLY REALIZED THAT HIS LIFE


WAS WORTH GOD GIVING THE LIFE


OF HIS SON FOR HIM, A


STAGGERING THOUGHT, HE SAID


CASH FOR CLUNKERS, HE KNEW HE


WAS A CLUNKER, HE KNEW HE HAD


FAILED, THAT HE HAD TURNED FROM


ALL THAT IS RIGHT, HE


DISAPPOINTED HIS WIFE AND BEEN


IN JAIL, HE HAD BEEN ABUSED SO


TERRIBLY, IT'S HARD TO EVEN


IMAGINE THAT STORIES LIKE THIS


HAVE HAPPENED BUT GOD IN HIS


LOVE JUST WRAPPED HIS ARMS


AROUND TODD AND HE KNEW THAT


HIS LIFE WOULD NEVER BE THE


SAME AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT


YOU'RE FACING TODAY, PERHAPS


YOU'RE FACING SOMETHING THAT'S


REAL BAD, YOU HAVE SOME PAIN


FROM YOUR PAST THAT KEEPS


AFFECTING YOUR PRESENT AND IT


WILL AFFECT YOUR FUTURE.


UNTIL YOU STOP IT DEAD IN ITS


TRACKS.


YOU WERE BORN FOR GREATNESS,


YOU WERE BORN FOR A PURPOSE,


GOD SAID WHEN HE PUT YOU AS A


LITTLE SEED IN YOUR MOTHER'S


WOMB, HE HAD A PLAN FOR YOUR


LIFE, THE ENEMY HAS COME IN AND


CAUSED EVIL TO COME ABOUT AND


TRIED TO DISTRACT YOU AND


PERHAPS EVEN GOTTEN YOU HOOKED


ON DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AND ALL


KINDS OF THINGS THAT WILL NEVER


BRING TRUE JOY, BUT JESUS,


JESUS IS THE ANSWER, AND YOU


KNOW WHAT, GOD DID GIVE HIS SON


FOR YOU, YOU ARE THAT VALUABLE,


THAT SIGNIFICANT, THAT


IMPORTANT THAT HE WOULD GIVE


HIS OWN SON SO THAT YOU COULD


BE ABSOLUTELY FREE AND THAT YOU


COULD FORGIVE THOSE FOR THOSE


WHO MAY HAVE HURT YOU.


THAT'S SO STRONG, I BELIEVE


THIS IS A NEW DAY FOR YOU.


YOUR LIFE CANNOT BE BRAND NEW.


WE'VE GOT TO DO SOME BUSINESS


WITH GOD.


IT'S TIME FOR US AND I'M GOING


TO GIVE YOU THIS, IT'S A NEW


DAY, IT'S A DVD AND IT'S GOT


SOME INFORMATION, BUT I


REMEMBER THE LEAD SINGER KORN,


AND GOD DID A WONDERFUL THING


IN HIS LIFE, AND IT'S THE SAME


AS THIS, IT TURNED HIM INTO A


HIGH SPEED GUY AND GAVE HIM A


HOLY HUG, TODAY IT CAN HAPPEN,


YOU READY FOR IT?


I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO HOLD


YOURSELF RIGHT NOW, YOU MAY


NOT HAVE A PROPHET COME TO YOUR


HOUSE BUT YOU HAVE TO SPEAK A


WORD TO YOURSELF, YOU'RE IN A


STRAIGHT JACKET RIGHT NOW,


AFTER YOU LET THESE HANDS DOWN,


YOU REACH FOR THE PHONE, PRAY


THIS WITH ME, GOD, I AM A


SINNER, I KNOW I'VE SINNED, I


MESSED UP, I'VE BLOWN IT, I


NEED YOU, I'M ASKING YOU FOR


HELP, THROW ME A BONE, GOD.


I CONFESS MY SIN AND I TURN FOR


MY SIN AND I TURN TO YOU,


JESUS, COULD YOU STEP OUT OF


HEAVEN AND INTO MY HEART, I


GIVE YOU MY PERSONAL PERMISSION


FOR YOUR HEAVENLY INTERVENTION


IN JESUS NAME, NOW LET IT GO,


FATHER IN THE NAME OF JESUS,


EVERYONE WHO HAS PRAYED THAT


PRAYER AND LET GO, I'M ASKING


THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO


LOOK INTO THOSE HOMES AND


HEARTS AND ROOMS, AND LET THE


BLOOD OF JESUS COVER THAT THEIR


PAST WOULD BE COVERED AND THEIR


FUTURE WOULD BE UNLOCKED IN


JESUS NAME.


IN JESUS NAME.


IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER WITH


BRIAN, WOULD YOU GIVE US A


CALL, 1-855-759-0700, OUR


PARTNERS ARE STANDING BY.


TOO OFTEN, WE CARRY BAGGAGE


FROM OUR PAST.


YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE.


IT AFFECTS EVERYTHING AND


EVERYONE IN OUR LIVES.


IT'S ALWAYS THERE WEIGHING US


DOWN AND KEEPING US FROM


ACHIEVING TRUE HAPPINESS, BUT


DO YOU KNOW GOD NEVER MEANT FOR


US TO BE TRAPPED IN THE PAST?


YOU CAN BE FREE OF YOUR


BAGGAGE, LEARN HOW GOD'S


FORGIVENESS LEADS TO CHANGED


LIVES AND NEW BEGINNINGS.


CALL THE 700 CLUB.


WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TO GO,


I'M TALKING TO YOU TODAY ABOUT


BEING IN THE ZONE, YOU KNOW I


PLAYED PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL,


ONE OF THE THINGS I APPRECIATED


IS NO MATTER WHAT WAS GOING ON


IN THE CROWD, I WAS ABLE TO


FOCUS ON MY PRIMARY


RESPONSIBILITY BY BEING IN THE


ZONE, THAT COULD BE ANY NUMBER


OF THINGS GOING ON, BUT THAT


WASN'T BOTHERING ME BECAUSE I


KNEW WHAT MY PURPOSE WAS AND I


KNEW WHAT MY ASSIGNMENT WAS AS


WELL.


YOU KNOW, EVERY ONE OF US IS


BORN WITH AN UNLIMITED


POTENTIAL AND AN UNTAPPED


PURPOSE, FROM THE DAY WE'RE


CREATED, GOD WANTS US TO


REALIZE THE BEST FOR OUR LIVE,


YET SO OFTEN, WE SPEND FAR TOO


MUCH TIME ASKING QUESTIONS


LIKE, HOW DO I DISCOVER MY


PURPOSE, WHEN WILL I REACH MY


POTENTIAL, WHERE IS THE PATH


THAT GOD HAS PLANNED FOR ME?


ESSENTIALLY, WE'RE ASKING HOW


DO I LIVE IN THE ZONE?


HOW DO I GET FROM A TO B?


NOW, TODAY, I WOULD LIKE TO


GIVE YOU JUST SOME OF THE


HINDRANCES AND THEN I'M GOING


TO PRAY FOR YOU AND I BELIEVE


GOD IS GOING TO TAKE YOU THE


REST OF THE WAY, HINDRANCE IS


TO FOLLOWING AND FINISHING THE


WILL OF GOD, LOOKING TOO FAR


AHEAD, TOO MANY PEOPLE AS A


PASTOR, I SEE THIS, TOO OFTEN,


WE NEED TO SOP LOOKING FOR A


ROAD MAP AND START LOOKING FOR


THE NEXT TURN, IT'S THE BABY


STEPS AS WE START MOVING ALONG


AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THAT


PURPOSE, LIVE FOR GOD GAY TO


DAY AND YOU WILL LIVE IN HIS


WILL FOR THE FUTURE, BUT B,


BIBLE BENDING, YEAH, OR


SCRIPTURE MANIPULATION,


INTERPRETING SCRIPTURE THE WAY


YOU WANT TO SHOE HORN GOD


INTO YOUR PERSONAL AGENDA,


REVOLUTION 218 AND 19 SAYS IT


THIS WAY, DON'T ADD TO OR TAKE


AWAY FROM THE WORD OF GOD, IN


ORDER TO DO THIS, YOU HAVE TO


OVERRIDE THE GPS, THE GOD


POSITIONING SYSTEM, THAT'S THE


HOLY GHOST, YOU HAVE TO SAY,


I'M IN CONTROL, WHO IS


PROGRESSIVELY OPERATING INTO


THE ANOINTING, THERE'S NO


SAVING WITHOUT A SAVIOR, THE


ANOINTING OF THE WORD IS THE


HOLY SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT OF


TRUTH, BUT THIS IS THE LAST


THING, SEE SELFISH MODE, JAMES


SAID IT THIS WAY IN JAMES 4,


YOU ASK AND YOU DO NOT RECEIVE,


WHY?


BECAUSE YOU ASK WITH THE WRONG


MOTIVES SO THAT YOU MAY SPEND


IT ON YOUR OWN PLEASURE.


WANTING GOD TO BLESS OUR


SELFISH DESIRES, LORD, LET IT


BE YOUR WILL THAT I DATE SUCH


AND SUCH, LORD, LET IT BE YOUR


WILL THAT I GET SUCH AND SUCH,


THIS ISN'T SEEKING GOD, IT'S AN


ATTEMPT TO CONTROL GOD, YOU


WANT A PUPPET, NOT GOD, AND


THIS IS THE LAST ONE, LACK OF


UNDERSTANDING OF GOD'S LOVE


WHICH LEADS TO A WRONG BELIEVE


THAT GOD WANTS YOU TO BE


UNHEALTHY, THEREFORE, YOU DON'T


WANT GOD TO KNOW TO DO.


I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU, HIT


THOSE OR GO TO OUR WEBSITE, I


PRAY THAT YOUR SONS AND


DAUGHTERS FOLLOW AND FINISH THE


WILL OF GOD, AND NOW THEIR GPS,


THEIR GOD POSITIONING SYSTEM


WILL MOVE THEM IN THE RIGHT


DECISION, AND THAT IS YOUR HOPE


TO GO.


YOU KNOW, MAYBE YOU'RE ONE


OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT BRIAN WAS


TALKING ABOUT AND YOU DON'T


KNOW YOUR PURPOSE AND IN FACT


YOU MAY FEEL SOME REJECTION


BECAUSE MAN HAS REJECTED YOU.


CAN I TELL YOU, GOD HAS NEVER


REJECTED YOU.


LISTEN TO THIS, ROMANS 11,


VERSE 2, NO, GOD HAS NEVER


REJECTED AND DISOWNED HIS


PEOPLE WHOSE DESTINY HE HAS


MARKED OUT AND APPOINTED AND


FAR KNOWN FROM THE BEGINNING,


THAT'S A PROMISE TO YOU, IT'S A


GREAT PROMISE.


I HEADED OUT ON TO THE STREETS


AND I MET ALAHI.


WHAT'S YOUR NAME?


ALAHI.


WHAT NATIONALITY IS THAT?


IT'S PERSIAN.


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF CANADA?


IT'S GREAT.


IT'S REALLY MULTICULTURAL AND


ACCEPTING OF EVERY CULTURE AND


NATION, AND IT'S A GREAT PLACE


TO LIVE.


YES, AND SO WHAT WERE YOU


RAISED AS YOUR RELIGION?


MUSLIM.


MUSLIM?


YES.


HOW DO YOU GET TO HEAVEN AT


THE END OF ALL OF THIS?


WELL, IF YOU READ THE KORAN,


IT'S SIMILAR TO THE BIBLE AND


JUST BEING A GOOD PERSON AND


LIVING YOUR LIFE AS A GOOD


PERSON AND DOING WHAT'S RIGHT


AND STUFF, THAT'S REALLY THE


WAY TO GO TO HEAVEN.


AND WHAT ABOUT IF YOU DO


SOME BAD THINGS?


HAVE YOU ALREADY DONE SOME BAD


THINGS?


BECAUSE I KNOW THAT I HAD


ALREADY DONE SOME BAD THINGS BY


THE TIME I WAS YOUR AGE?


I DON'T THINK SO


YOU HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING


BAD, HAVE YOU LIED?


MAYBE LITTLE WHITE LIES.


BUT NOT STOLEN?


NO.


HOW ABOUT GOSSIPED?


HAVE YOU EVER GOSSIPED


EVERY GIRL GOSSIPS.


SO, YOU'VE GOT A FEW LITTLE


BAD THINGS.


YES.


SO, HOW DO YOU GET ATONEMENT


FOR THAT.


I THINK MY FAITH


IS BE A GOOD PERSON, DO GOOD


DEEDS.


IF YOU FAIL AND IF YOU


GOSSIP AND TELL A LIE HERE AND


THERE, HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT


YOU'RE STILL GOING TO MAKE IT


TO HEAVEN?


PRAY I GUESS.


PRAY FOR FORGIVENESS, YEAH.


AND WHAT HAVE YOU HEARD


ABOUT JESUS?


WELL, HE'S THE VIRGIN MARY'S


SON, AND THAT'S ALL BASICALLY I


KNOW ABOUT JESUS.


HE CLAIMED TO BE THE SON OF


GOD.


WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?


WE BELIEVE IN JESUS TOO BUT


WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT HE'S THE


SON OF GOD.


BUT IF HE CLAIMED TO BE THE


SON OF GOD AND YOU DON'T THINK


HE IS, WHAT WAS HE SAYING THEN?


WELL, I KNOW THAT IN THE


KORAN, IT DIDN'T SAY THAT AND I


BELIEVE IN THE KORAN AND I


DON'T KNOW IF IT SAYS THAT IN


THE BIBLE.


IT DOES.


IF IT DOES, I THINK THAT'S


HOW THE KORAN AND THE BIBLE ARE


SIMILAR, BUT --


YES, THEY DO HAVE


DIFFERENCES.


IT'S A GOOD QUESTION, HOW CAN


WE GIVE HIM RESPECT IF WE DON'T


BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE, THAT WOULD


MAKE HIM LOOK LIKE A MAD MAN


OR, YOU KNOW, OR HE WAS?


MAYBE I'LL JUST DO MORE


RESEARCH.


WOULD YOU DO THAT?


YEAH.


THAT'S KIND OF COOL, ISN'T


IT?


YEAH, IT IS.


I THANK YOU FOR THAT.


THANK YOU FOR


TAKING TIME FOR ME TODAY.
