A FATHER TO BE WITH A

GUILTY CONSCIENCE.

I WOULDN'T WISH IT ON

ANYONE.

Reporter: AND BLOOD ON

HIS HANDS.

HE JUST TOOK A LIFE.

Reporter: PLUS...

I HAD TWO YEARS TO LIVE.

Reporter: A DEVASTATING

PROGNOSIS.

THERE I WAS, 21 YEARS

OLD, 2001, AND IT SEEMED

LIKE MY DREAMS WERE DASHED.

Reporter: AND A WILL TO

SURVIVE.

JUST TO WAKE UP ANOTHER

DAY MEANS THERE'S HOPE.

Reporter: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLU "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "700 CLUB."

IT IS AN ANNIVERSARY OF A

TRAGEDY THAT WAS HAPPENING

IN NEW ORLEANS.

WE WERE PRAYING FOR NEW

ORLEANS, AND WE WERE VERY

CONCERNED ABOUT BEFORE THE

HURRICANE, AND WE WERE

CONCERNED AFTERWARDS, AND WE

HAVE BEEN HELPING THE PEOPLE

IN NEW ORLEANS.

BUT RIGHT NOW THERE IS

ANOTHER ONE, BUT IT LOOKS

LIKE ISAAC WON'T STRIKE AS

HARD.

THE CORE OF ENGINEERS HAVE

DONE A PRETTY GOOD JOB.

Terry: I HOPE THEY'RE

RIGHT ABOUT THAT.

THEY'RE SAYING THEY'RE

PREPARED FOR ISAAC, AND THE

FORMER MAYOR TELLS CBN NEWS

HE GOT THE BLUEPRINT FOR

REBUILDING THAT CITY FROM

THE BIBLE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE WIND

CONTINUES TO PICK UP SPEED

AS ISAAC PREPARES TO MAKE

LAND FALL.

THIS WILL BE THE FIRST TEST

THAT THE LEVEE SYSTEM HAS

BEEN REPLACED.

THIS IS WHERE THE INFAMOUS

BREACH HAPPENED AT THE

17th STREET CANAL.

IT HAS BEEN A LONG ROAD TO

RECOVERY.

AND NO ONE KNOWS THAT BETTER

THAN THE MAYOR WHO LED THEM

THROUGH IT.

NOW I LOOK AT IT AND I

SEE THE POPULATION GROWING.

87% OF THE PEOPLE ARE BACK,

LAST REPORT.

UNEMPLOYMENT IS AT HISTORIC

LOWS, AND CONSTRUCTION IS

EVERYWHERE.

Reporter: FLASH BACK TO

AUGUST 29th, 2005, WHEN

DESTRUCTION WAS EVERYWHERE.

HURRICANE KATRINA HIT,

LEAVING BROKEN LEVEES IN HER

WAKE.

BYRON REMEMBERS WATCHING THE

STORM AS IT WIPED OUT HIS

LIFE'S WORK.

THIS BOAT WAS HERE, AND

IT WOUND OUT A MILE UP O ON

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LEVEE,

CLOSE TO THE RIVER, IN THE

TREES.

THE LEVEE WAS FULL OF BOATS

TURNED UP SIDE DOWN.

Reporter: MAYOR NEGAN

ORDERED THE EVACUATION OF

THE ENTIRE CITY, AND THEN

SCRAMBLED TO SAVE THOSE

BEHIND.

IN THE END, AN ESTIMATED 700

RESIDENTS DIED.

I DIDN'T SLEEP MUCH FOR A

LONG TIME.

I'VE BEEN OUT OF OFFICE FOR

TWO YEARS, AND NOW JUST TO

THE POINT WHERE I'M

BASKETBALL SLEEPING

DECENTLY.

IT WAS QUITE A TOLL.

Reporter: NAGEN SHARES

HIS STORY IN "KATRINA'S

SECRETS, STORMS AFTER THE

STORM."

ONE SECRET, WHERE HE TURNED

FOR GUIDANCE TO START OVER.

I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT

HOW DO YOU RECOVER A CITY

THAT IS ALMOST TOTALLY

DEFENSDEVASTATED.

I'M CHECKING THE INTERNET,

TALKING TO EXPERTS, I

COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING.

GUESS WHERE I FOUND THE

ANSWER?

NEHEMIAH, WHEN JERUSALEM WAS

DESTROYED.

IT GAVE ME A ROADMAP TO HOW

TO APPROACH THE REBUILDING

OF THIS CITY.

FOR ME, YOU KNOW, GOD WAS

DEFINITELY INVOLVED EVERY

STEP OF THE WAY.

THERE IS NO WAY WE COULD

HAVE RECOVERED THIS CITY

WITHOUT HIS HAND BEING

INVOLVED IN IT.

Reporter: THE STORY OF

NEW ORLEANS' RECOVERY

RECOVERY IS STILL BEING

WRITTEN.

8,000 PROPERTIES WERE

REPAIRED OR REBUILT FROM

SEPTEMBER 2010 TO MARCH

2011.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SEVEN

YEARS, THE CITY NO LONGER

TOPS THE LIST OF THE MOST

BLIGHTED IN AMERICA.

CERTAIN SECTIONS OF THE

CITY, THERE IS QUITE A BIT

OF CRIMES.

SO WE'RE STILL DEALING WITH

OUR STRUGGLES.

BUT FOR THE MOST PART, WE'RE

PRETTY MUCH BACK.

Reporter: ONE AREA OF

THE CITY THAT STILL HAS NOT

COME BACK IS THE LOWER NINTH

WARD.

TODAY'S DEADLINE SAYS IT

ALL, MANY WILL WEATHER THE

HURRICANE HERE AT HOME.

BUT THEY'RE ALSO PRAYING IT

PASSES OVER WITHOUT DOING

ANY HARM.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS,

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA.

Pat: THEY ARE WONDERFUL

PEOPLE IN NEW ORLEANS.

IT WAS A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY,

BUT THANKFULLY WE WERE THERE

TO HELP.

FEMA WAS MISMATCHED FROM THE

TOP ON DOWN.

THEY JUST DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO DO.

I FLEW OVER IT IN A

HELICOPTER SHORTLY AFTER

THAT TRAGEDY, AND THESE

HOUSE, WHICH WERE BEAUTIFUL

HOMES, WERE JUST A PILE OF

STICKS.

IT WAS JUST SO TRAGIC.

YOU COULD SEE THE

FLOODWATERS EVERYWHERE.

Terry: WE SELDOM SEE

THAT KIND OF DEVASTATION

FROM SOMETHING.

AND HOPEFULLY AS COMPLETELY

AS THAT WAS A HUGE TRAGEDY

FOR NEW ORLEANS, YOU WOULD

LIKE TO THINK REGARDING FEMA

AND OTHER AGENCIES, THEY

WOULD LEARNED SOMETHING AND

DEVELOPED ANYTHING.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW THAT

FEMA HAS LEARNED ANYTHING.

GEORGE BUSH JAMMED A WHOLE

BUNCH OF AGENCIES TOGETHER,

HOMELAND SECURITY -- IT WAS

NONSENSE.

YOU JUST CAN'T DO THAT.

YOU JUST CAN'T TAKE 10 OR 12

GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND JAM

THEM TOGETHER AND SAY NOW

WE'VE MADE IT EFFICIENT.

THAT WAS NONSENSE.

HE HAD THE HEAD OF AN ARAB

HORSE ASSOCIATION IN CHARGE

OF FEMA.

HORSES, I LIKE, BUT HE HAD

NO EXPERIENCE IN CLEANING UP

A CITY.

IT WAS RIDICULOUS.

BUT MAYBE THIS TIME --

MAYBE, MAYBE, MAYBE.

THEY'VE BEEN DOING A LOT OF

WORK ON IT.

WE HOPE SO.

THIS STORM, BY THE WAY, IS

HUGE.

BUT IT IS NOT CARRYING THE

SAME LEVEL OF WIND THAT

KATRINA HAD.

NEVERTHELESS, IF IT STAYS IN

THERE AND IT CHURNS AROUND,

A LOW OF THE LOW-LYING AREAS

, LAKE PONCHATRAIN, CAN

START SPILLING OUT.

WE'RE PRAYING AND HOPING

THIS TIME NEW ORLEANS WILL

COME THROUGH UNSCATHED AND

MAYBE WE CAN GO DOWN THERE

AND ENJOY SOME OF THAT.

LEE WEBB HAS MORE OF OUR TOP

NEWS.

Lee: PAT, THE

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

CONVENTION KICKS OFF IN

TAMPA WITH THE POLLS SHOWING

A TIGHT RACE BETWEEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MITT

ROMNEY.

A NEW "WASHINGTON POST" POL

HAS ROMNEY AT 47% AND THE

PRESIDENT AT 46%.

THAT IS A VIRTUAL DEAD

HEAT.

TWO UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO

PROFESSORS HAS DEVISED A

MODEL THAT HAS DELEGATES

BUZZING.

IT USES ECONOMIC INDICATORS

FROM ALL 50 STATES TO

FORECAST THE WINNER.

IT SHOWS ROMNEY WINNING WITH

320 ELECTORAL VOTES, AND THE

PRESIDENT WITH 218.

THE PROFESSORS SAY THE MODEL

HAS BEEN RIGHT IN EVERY

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION SINCE

1980, PAT.

Pat: WELL, THE STARS

AREN'T LINING UP IN FAVOR OF

OBAMA.

THE ECONOMY IS IN TERRIBLE

SHAPE.

THE UNEMPLOYMENT AT 8.2%.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO

ARE NOT ON THE ROLL.

SO THE ACTUAL UNEMPLOYMENT

IS MUCH HIGHER THAN.

BUSINESSES ARE FAILING AT A

RECORD RATE.

FORECLOSURES ARE GOING UP AT

A RECORD RATE.

AND NOW WE'VE GOT HIGHER

GASOLINE PRICES.

THE PRICE AT THE PUMP IS

CROWDING $4 A GALLON, AND

THE PRICE PER BARREL OF

CRUDE IS HOVERING AROUND

$100.

IT IS GOING TO HIT THERE AND

MORE.

THAT'S NOT GOING TO HELP THE

PRESIDENT.

SO EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK, IT

IS KIND OF BAD NEWS FOR TEAM

OBAMA.

SO THAT'S THE WAY IT'S GOING

TO BE, AND THESE PROFESSORS

SAY FROM THEIR ANALYSIS OF

KEY INDICATORS, THEY'VE

PREDICTED EACH RACE OVER THE

LAST 10 OR 20 YEARS, AND

THEY SAY THIS MODEL WILL

BEAR FRUIT AGAIN.

I DARE SAY THOSE PROFESSORS

ARE RIGHT.

WE'LL SEE.

LEE?

Lee: MIKE HUCKABEE

TELLS CBN'S DAVID BRODY

THERE ARE TWO BIG REASONS HE

DIDN'T MAKE ANOTHER RUN FOR

PRESIDENT.

ONE WAS THE TOXIC

ATMOSPHERE THAT EXISTED IN

THE PARTY.

A CANDIDATE THAT DOESN'T

ENJOY GOING OUT AND TEARING

OTHER PEOPLE IN THE

REPUBLICAN TICKET.

I'LL MIX IT UP WITH THE

LIBERALS ANY DAY OF THE WEEK

AND HAVE FUN DOING IT.

EVEN THEN, I'M NOT GOING TO

DO IT IN AN ANGRY WAY.

AND THE OTHER FACTOR, AND

IT'S A HARSH REALITY, I DID

NOT SEE THE LEVEL OF MONEY

COMING MY WAY THAT WOULD

HAVE BEEN NOT ONLY NECESSARY

TO COMPETE, BUT IN THIS

WORLD OF POLITICS, IT IS NOT

ENOUGH TO HAVE MONEY TO GET

YOUR MESSAGE OUT.

Lee: HUCKABEE SPOKE TO

DAVID BRODY AT THE

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

CONVENTION IN TAMPA.

MANY EVANGELICALS WANTED

HUCKABEE TO RUN.

AND POLLS INDICATED HE WOULD

HAVE BEEN A STRONG

CONTENDER.

YOU CAN SEE MORE OF DAVID'S

INTERVIEW WITH THE FORMER

ARKANSAS GOVERNOR ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

A MAJOR COALITION OF BLACK

PASTORS HAS THANKED THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY FOR

STRONGLY SUPPORTING

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE IN ITS

PLATFORM.

REVEREND WILLIAM OWENS SAYS

WE THANK THE G.O.P. FOR

ENSURING THAT AT LEAST ONE

PARTY IS WILLING TO STAND UP

FOR THE COMMON SENSE,

BIBLICAL UNDERSTANDING OF

MARRIAGE.

OWEN'S SON SAYS CHRISTIANS

FAILED TO STAND UP WHEN

ABORTION WAS LEGALIZED, AND

THEY MUST NOT BE PASSIVE NOW

ABOUT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

WE STAND TO REALLY HURT

THE HEART OF GOD IF WE TAKE

THAT POSITION.

WE'RE MORE ACCOUNTABLE TO

GOD THAN BE ARE TO MAN.

Lee: BOTH MEN SAY IF

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS

GOING TO PLACE POWER BEHIND

GAY MARRIAGE, GROUPS LIKE

THEIRS MUST RISE TO DEFEND

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

Pat: GIVEN THE STATE OF

MARRIAGE AROUND THE COUNTRY,

OVERWHELMING VOTERS HAVE

VOTED IN FAVOR OF

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE WHEN IT

HAS COME ON THE BALLOT.

THERE HAVE BEEN

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

DEFINING MARRIAGE AS A MAN

AND A WOMAN, AND SO FORTH.

TO THINK THAT THE DEMOCRATIC

PARTY WOULD PUT IN THEIR

PLATFORM SUPPORT OF GAY

MARRIAGE, YOU JUST SAY WHAT

ARE THEY THINKING ABOUT?

WHAT ARE THEY THINKING

ABOUT?

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

INSULTED THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

IN TERMS OF FUNDING FOR

CONTRACEPTION AND FORCED ALL

OF THE THINGS THAT THEY'RE

TRYING TO IMPOSE ON CATHOLIC

SCHOOLS.

AND NOW TO SEE THIS IN THE

PLATFORM, YOU SAY, ARE YOU

OUT OF YOUR MIND?

WELL, MAYBE NOT.

WE'LL SEE.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, AN ATHEIST

GROUP HAS REMOVED TWO

BILLBOARDS THAT ATTACKED

CHRISTIANITY AND MORM

MORMANISM.

THEY PLACED THE BILLBOARDS

IN CHARLOTTE, NORTH

CAROLINA.

THE GROUP SAYS IT PULLED

THEM AFTER IT RECEIVED WHAT

IT CALLED A LARGE VOLUME OF

THREATS.

ONE BILLBOARD CALLED JESUS A

USELESS SAVIOR, AND ANOTHER

SAYS MORMNISM IS A FORM OF

ALIENISM.

HAVING A POT BELLY COULD BE

WORSE FOR YOUR HEART THAN

BEING OBESE.

A NEW STUDY SUGGESTS THAT

PEOPLE WITH A HEALTHY

OVERALL WEIGHT, BUT TOO MUCH

BELLY FAT ARE NEARLY THREE

TIMES AS LIKELY TO DIE FROM

HEART PROBLEMS.

EXTRA FAT AROUND THE WASTE

IS PACKED WITH WHAT IS

CALLED BAD FAT.

IT IS JAMMED AROUND THE

ORGANS AND IT RELEASES MORE

OF THE INFLAMMATORY, TOXIC

CHEMICALS THAT RAISE THE

RISK OF HEART DISEASE.

STUDIES PROVE THE LOCATION

OF FAT IS IMPORTANT NO

MATTER HOW MUCH YOU WEIGH.

Pat: IT IS BAD NEWS FOR

THE OLDER FOLKS.

THOUGH POT BELLIES KIND OF

WANT TO CREEP UP ON YOU.

YOU'VE GOT TO FIGHT THEM.

I WAS IN THE GYM.

I WAS LIFTING WEIGHTS

YESTERDAY.

YOU'VE GOT TO WORK ON THOSE

THINGS.

Terry: WELL, THAT'S

YOU'RE LAW OF YOUTH.

Pat: THE LAW OF YOUTH.

IF YOU CAN BUILD THESE UP,

MAYBE THE ONE DOWN HERE WILL

DIMINISH.

YOU HOPE THAT'S THE CASE.

AND THE OTHER THING IS THIS

EXERCISE IS PUSHING AWAY

FROM THE TABLE.

I RECOMMEND IT STRONGLY.

Terry: YOU DON'T EVEN

HAVE TO HAVE WEIGHTS TO DO

THAT.

Pat: GET YOUR HANDS

FIRMLY IMPLANTED ON THE

TABLE AND ROLL BACK.

Terry: AND GET UP AND

RUN.

Pat: THAT WILL CUT THE

POT BELLY BACK.

Terry: UP NEXT, MEET A

DOCTOR WHO HAS STUDIED IN

DEPTH THE PRESIDENT'S 2700

PAGE HEALTH CARE PLAN.

HE'LL SHARE SOME SHOCKING

INFORMATION ABOUT OBAMACARE

AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, TWO YEARS

HAVE PASSED SINCE THE

PRESIDENT SIGNED HIS HEALTH

CARE BILL INTO LAW.

BUT OBAMACARE IS JUST

BEGINNING TO HAVE EFFECT.

AS MARK MARTIN REPORTS, MOST

AMERICANS HAVE NOT THE

SLIGHTEST CLUE AS TO WHAT

IMPACT THAT LAW WILL HAVE IN

THEIR LIVES.

AND THAT INCLUDES MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS WHO NOT ONLY VOTED

FOR IT, THEY DIDN'T READ

IT.

Reporter: IT IS KNOWN

AS OBAMACARE, AND THE

PATIENT PROTECTION AND

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT HAS BEEN

CONTROVERSIAL SINCE IT WAS

DRAFTED IN 2009 AND SIGNED

INTO LAW A YEAR LATER.

IT GIVES THE GOVERNMENT

CONTROL OVER ONE-SIXTH OF

THE U.S. ECONOMY, AND IS

MORE THAN 2700 PAGES LONG.

MOST LAWMAKERS WHO VOTED FOR

THE BILL ADMITTED THEY

HADN'T EVEN READ IT.

EVEN ITS MOST ARDENT

SUPPORTER, THEN SPEAKER OF

THE HOUSE, NANCY PELOSI.

WE HAVE TO PASS THE BILL

SO THAT YOU CAN FIND OUT

WHAT IS IN IT.

Reporter: ONE MAN WHO

HAS STUDIED THE LAW IN

DETAIL IS DR. C.L. GREY.

IN HIS BOOK "THE BATTLE FOR@ú

AMERICA'S SOUL," HE PAINTS

AN OMINOUS PICTURE OF LIFE

IN AMERICA UNDER

GOVERNMENT-MANDATED HEALTH

CARE, ESPECIALLY FOR THE

ELDERLY AND THOSE WITH

LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESSES.

Pat: JOINING US TO TALK

ABOUT THIS CONCEPT FOR

PATIENT-CENTERED CARE IS

DR. C.L. GREY.

HE IS THE PRESIDENT AND

FOUNDER OF AN ORGANIZATION

CALLED "PHYSICIANS FOR

REFORM."

HE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED

"THE BATTLE FOR AMERICA'S

SOUL."

IT IS VERY FAR-REACHING AS

TO THE CONCEPTS OF THE TWO

CLASHES IN OUR SOCIETY.

DR. GREY, THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME, PAT.

Pat: BEFORE WE GET INTO

THE HEALTH CARE STUFF, WHAT

ARE THE BASIC CONCEPTS THAT

ARE CLASHING IN OUR SOCIETY?

I REALLY GOT STARTED

ABOUT THIS BECAUSE MY CARE

AND CONCERN FOR THE

PATIENT.

BECAUSE HEALTH CARE IS VERY

PERSONAL.

IT AFFECTS DEMOCRATS,

INDEPENDENTS, AND

REPUBLICANS.

WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO

UNDERSTAND IS THE FORCES

BEHIND WHAT IS HAPPENING.

AND THERE IS REALLY THE

JUDAEO CHRISTIAN WORLD VIEW,

WHICH, OF COURSE, YOU

UNDERSTAND EXTREMELY WELL.

AT THE BASIS OF THAT, THERE

IS THE CONCEPT OF TRUTH AND

THE CONCEPT OF THE

INDIVIDUAL.

AS OPPOSED TO THAT, WE HAVE

WHAT I CALL THE POST-MODERN

WORLD VIEW.

AND THE POST-MODERN WORLD

VIEW SETS ASIDE THE CONCEPT

OF TRUTH AND SETS ASIDE THE

INTRINSIC DIGNITY OF THE

HUMAN.

BECAUSE THERE IS NO GOD.

WHEN YOU SET ASIDE THE

CONCEPT OF THE GOD, YOU SET

ASIDE THE CONCEPT OF THE

INTRINSIC WORTH OF THE

INDIVIDUAL.

Pat: WHAT IS THE

SUBSTITUTE?

WELL, THERE IS NO

SUBSTITUTE.

I GUESS THERE IS A, I GUESS,

REPLACEMENT.

THAT'S WHEN YOU REMOVE GOD

FROM THE PICTURE.

THAT TAKES EFFECT AND HAS A

SEVERE IMPACT ON HEALTH CARE

BECAUSE OF HOW THESE WORLD

VIEWS VIEW THE PATIENT.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

GIVE ME SPECIFICS THAT WE

CAN GET DRILLED DOWN ON TO

WHAT ONE WOULD -- ONE WOULD

BE AFFECTED.

PERHAPS A STORY.

THE STORY OF BARBARA WAGNER

WOULD BE MOST HELPFUL.

BARBARA WAS A 64-YEAR-OLD

GAL IN OREGON AND SHE DIDN'T

HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE AND

ENDED UP ON A STATE-RUN

PROGRAM.

SHE HAD RECURRENT LUNG

CANCER, AND SHE WENT TO HER

ONCOLOGIST AND HE

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT WITH A

NEW CHEMOTHERAPY.

SHE WENT TO GET THE

CHEMOTHERAPY, BUT SHE

COULDN'T GET THE MEDICINE.

SHE GOT A LETTER FROM THE

STATE OF OREGON SAYING THEY

WOULD NOT PAY FOR

CHEMOTHERAPY, BUT THEY WOULD

PAY FOR HOSPICE ARE

PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED SUICIDE.

Pat: IN OREGON, THEY

SAID WE'LL HELP YOU KILL

YOURSELF.

IN A LETTER.

Pat: IN A LETTER?

SOMEBODY SIGNED IT?

ABSOLUTELY.

SHE APPEALED IT TWICE, AND

GOT DENIED TWICE.

THERE IS AN AMAZING VIDEO

WHERE SHE IS SITTING, LOOKS

LIKE IN HER KITCHEN, READY

TO GO WALK HER DOG AND MAKE

COOKIES.

GOVERNMENT COMPASSION SOUNDS

SO NOBLE, BUT IN THE END,

WHOEVER PAYS HOLDS THE POWER

TO CHOICE.

Pat: THE AUDIENCE MUST

BE ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIED AT

THIS.

A GOVERNMENT AGENT TELLS

THIS 64-YEAR-OLD LADY WHO

LIKES TO BAKE COOKIES.

YOU'VE GOT CANCER.

WE CAN'T AFFORD TO GIVE YOU

UP TO DATE TREATMENT, BUT

WE'LL GIVE YOU ENOUGH MONEY

TO GET YOURSELF KILLED.

WOW!

THAT'S LIKE THE NAZIS.

THEY HAD REPLACED HER

CHANCE TO LIVE WITH A CHOICE

OF HOW TO DIE.

BECAUSE THEY HAD RUN OUT OF

MONEY.

AND I DEAL WITH THIS IN THE

BOOK.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TRUST

GOVERNMENT -- GOVERNMENT

COMPASSION SOUNDS NOBLE.

WE'RE ONE OF THE MOST

COMPASSIONATE NATIONS ON

EARTH.

WE ALL WANT OUR FELLOW

AMERICAN TO HAVE ACCESS TO

CARE.

BUT THE GOVERNMENT HAS

LIMITED RESOURCES.

AND WE'RE $16 TRILLION IN

DEBT.

AND I GO THROUGH AND I

COMPLAIN HOW THIS

POST-MODERN WORLD VIEW

STARTS TO REVALUE THE

INDIVIDUAL.

ESPECIALLY INFANTS BORN WITH

DISABILITIES, AND SENIORS

ARE GIVEN INTRINSICALLY LESS

WORTH THAN THOSE THAT

ARE, QUOTE,"PRODUCTIVE" TO

SOCIETY.

Pat: SO THESE ARE

USELESS EATERS UNDER THE

POST-MODERN --

SOMETIMES THEY USE THE

PHRASE "LIVES THAT ARE NOT

WORTH LIVING."

IT COMES BACK FROM BACK IN

THE NAZI ERA.

Pat: LET'S GO TO

OBAMACARE.

THAT HAS BEEN FOUGHT OVER.

AND NANCY PELOSI SAYS WE

HAVE TO PASS THE BILL SO WE

CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT'S IN

IT.

THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST

INSANE STATEMENTS BY A

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE.

LET'S PASS IT SO WERE CAN

UNDERSTAND WHAT IT WILL DO.

YOU'RE A DOCTOR.

HOW WILL IT AFFECT YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR

PATIENTS OF WHAT YOU CAN AND

CAN'T DO.

IT FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGES

THE PATIENT-PHYSICIAN

RELATIONSHIP.

THAT'S THE FUNDAMENTAL

CHANGE.

IT WAS PREDICTABLE.

I WROTE ABOUT IT BEFORE IT

HAPPENED.

WHEN THE PHYSICIAN BECOMES

AN EMPLOYEE OF THE STATE,

NOW THEY HAVE A FINANCIAL

INTEREST TO LOOK OUT FOR THE

FINANCIAL INTEREST OF THE

STATE, NOT THE WELL-BEING OF

THE INDIVIDUAL CITIZEN.

THAT'S REFLECTED IN THE

STORY OF BARBARA WAGNER.

Pat: SO THE MOST COSTLY

TREATMENT IS SOMETHING THAT

YOU PROBABLY WOULDN'T

PRESCRIBE BECAUSE IT WILL

COST THE STATE MONEY AND

YOU'LL LOSE MONEY IT.

THAT'S ESSENTIALLY THE

WAY IT WILL BE SET UP.

THE PHYSICIANS WON'T BE

REIMBURSED TO OFFER THE

TREATMENTS THAT ARE MORE

EXPENSIVE.

THIS FALLS MOSTLY TO

SENIORS.

Pat: WILL THIS DIMINISH

THE NUMBER OF PHYSICIANS

AVAILABLE?

ABSOLUTELY.

THERE IS A RECENT SURVEY

THAT SUGGESTS THAT 43% OF

PHYSICIANS ARE LOOKING TO

LEAVE MEDICINE BECAUSE OF

THIS LEGISLATION.

Pat: WHY WOULD THEY

LEAVE?

BECAUSE IT FUNDAMENTALLY

CHANGES HOW WE THINK, HOW WE

PRACTICE.

THERE IS FAR MORE CONCERN

ABOUT DO WE CHECK THE RIGHT

BOXES.

IS THE CHART PERFECT.

THAT'S THE CONCERN OF THE

CURRENT SYSTEM THAT WE'RE

MOVING INTO.

IF YOU MISS ANYTHING,

PHYSICIANS CAN BE SEVERELY,

SEVERELY PUNISHED.

Pat: GIVE ME AN

EXAMPLE.

THERE IS THE RECOVERY ON

A CONTRACTOR.

WHERE THE INDEPENDENT

CONTRACTORS GO IN AND GO

THROUGH PHYSICIAN RECORDS,

MOSTLY FOR PATIENTS ON

MEDICARE.

IF THERE IS ANY

DOCUMENTATION ERROR, THAT

PHYSICIAN HAS TO ESSENTIALLY

PAY THAT MONEY BACK.

AND SOMETIMES THAT CAN

AMOUNT TO HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS TO MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS, PUTTING PHYSICIANS

OUT OF BUSINESS.

Pat: AND NO INSURANCE

FOR THAT.

YOU CAN'T ENSURE AGAINST

THAT?

NO.

NO.

AND ACTUALLY IT GETS WORSE

THAN THAT.

WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO

EXPLAIN.

Pat: MY SHOCK LEVEL IS

GOING UP.

I'VE GOT TIME TO GET SHOCKED

SOME MORE.

WHAT?

OKAY.

LET'S GO TO A SLIGHTLY

DIFFERENT PIECE.

I TALKED ABOUT THE YOUNG AND

THE OLD.

THERE IS A BOOK I READ --

THIS IS BACK IN 1990s,

RE-THINKING LIFE AND DEATH,

WRITTEN BY PETER SINGER,

FROM PRINCETON, UNIVERSITY.

HE SAYS WE SHOULD REEXAM

HUMAN LIFE, AND WE DON'T

CONSIDER INFANTS TOTALLY

HUMAN UNTIL FIVE WEEKS OF

AGE.

SO IF YOU'RE BORN WITH A

DISABILITY, YOU CAN BE

KILLED.

THIS IS REMOVING THE

DISABLED AND THE ELDERLY --

Pat: HE TEACHES AT

PRINCETON?

HE IS STILL THERE.

Pat: WHY DON'T THEY

FIRE HIM.

YOU CAN KILL A CHILD AFTER

FIVE WEEKS, BECAUSE HE

DIDN'T LOOK LIKE HE IS

HEALTHY -- THAT'S MURDER.

THAT IS INFANTCIDE.

Pat: IT IS OKAY TO

PETER SINGER.

IT IS RECOMMENDED BECAUSE

IT IS MORE EFFICIENT.

WE CAN TAKE ALL OF THE

DOLLARS WE SAVED BY NOT

TREATING KIDS WITH

DISABILITIES, AND TRANSFER

THEM TO KIDS THAT ARE MORE

MORE GIFTED.

WE LOOK OUT FOR SOCIETY --

Pat: UNBELIEVABLE.

A VAST MAJORITY OF HEALTH

CARE DOLLARS GO TO PEOPLE

OVER 70.

AND THAT'S WHEN THE

HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IS REALLY

NEEDED, WHEN YOU START TO

HAVE FAILING HEALTH, WHICH

GENERALLY COMES AT THE END

OF LIFE.

THE GOOD NEWS HERE IS THERE

ARE SOLUTIONS.

UNDER THE PATIENT PROTECTION

AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT,

OBAMACARE, THE CONGRESSIONAL

OFFICE SAYS THEY'RE GOING TO

BE CUTTING $17 BILLION, AND

IN ADDITION TO THAT, THERE

IS ANOTHER $290 BILLION.

IT'S ABOUT A TRILLION CUT.

BUT WE CAN START TO FIX THAT

SYSTEM, AND I LAID THAT OUT

IN MY POLICY PAPER "CUTTING

THE GORDION KNOT."

IT CAN SAFE 3- TO

$4 BILLION.

AND I CAN USE THAT TO START

TO STABILIZE MEDICARE FOR

SENIORS.

Pat: THE DEMOCRATS

DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT

MALPRACTICE INSURANCE.

I HAPPENED TO RUN INTO ONE

ON AN AIRPLANE.

I THINK HE SAID HIS PREMIUMS

FOR INSURANCE WERE SOMETHING

LIKE $3 MILLION A YEAR.

THAT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

HOW CAN YOU PRACTICE

MEDICINE AND PAY THAT KIND

OF PREMIUM?

THAT MUST HAVE BEEN FOR A

GROUP OR HOSPITAL POLICY,

AND NOT FOR AN INDIVIDUAL

PHYSICIAN.

BUT IT CAN BE ASTRONOMICAL.

BUT THAT'S ANOTHER WAY.

AND ESSENTIALLY IN THE PAPER

I OUTLINED 17 IDEAS, AND

TORT REFORM IS ONE OF THE

17.

Pat: CAN WE REIN IN THE

COST OF MEDICINE?

ABSOLUTELY.

AND THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO DO

IT.

THIS REFLECTS THOSE TWO

WORLD VIEWS.

YOU CAN EITHER GO WITH THE

WORLD VIEW OF PETER SINGER

AND DR. MANUEL AND PATIENT

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, AND

THROUGH A BUREAUCRATIC

OPTION LIMIT ACCESS TO

CARE.

I DON'T LIKE THAT CHOICE.

THE OTHER CHOICE IS TO MAKE

THE SYSTEM MORE EFFICIENT,

THROUGH TORT REFORM, THROUGH

DIRECT PHYSICIAN PAY

SYSTEMS.

I WAS DOING A TOWNHALL DOWN

IN NORTH CAROLINA, AND ONE

OF THE PHYSICIANS THERE

DIDN'T TAKE MEDICARE,

MEDICAID, OR INSURANCE.

HE TRIPLED HIS EFFICIENCY.

THE AVERAGE FAMILY PRACTICE

PHYSICIAN NEEDS BETWEEN FOUR

AND FIVE EMPLOYEES TO DEAL

WITH ALL OF THE PAPERWORK

FOR EVERY ONE PHYSICIAN.

HE IS ABLE TO ABLE TO HIRE

THREE PHYSICIANS FOR EVERY

ONE EMPLOYEE, BY GETTING RID

OF ALL OF THE BUREAUCRATIC

OVERSIGHT.

HE CAN SPEND MORE TIME WITH

HIS PATIENTS AND HAVE BETTER

OUTCOMES.

HE IS HAPPIER, AND HIS

PATIENTS ARE HAPPIER, BY

GETTING RID OF THE

BUREAUCRATIC --

Pat: WHAT ABOUT

BUREAUCRATIC PANEL THAT

DECIDES WHETHER PEOPLE CAN

GET CARE OR NOT CARE.

IT IS IN THE BILL.

IT IS SECTION 3403.

IT IS A SECTION CALLED THE

IPAD, THE INDEPENDENT

PAYMENT ADVISOR BOARD.

THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST IN

THE BILL.

Pat: I'M GLAD I POINTED

THAT OUT.

THERE ARE 15 INDEPENDENT

EXPERTS, AND THEIR JOB IS

TASKED SPECIFICALLY, QUOTE,"

IT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS

SECTION TO REDUCE THE PER

CAPITA RATE OF GROWTH OF

MEDICARE SPENDING."

IT STUCK IN MY HEAD.

BUT HIS PANEL WILL START TO

LIMIT ACCESS TO CARE FOR

SENIORS.

THAT'S THEIR JOB.

AND WHAT'S THE WORST PART

ABOUT IT IS THEY'RE GIVEN

LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY ABOVE

CONGRESS.

Pat: WHO APPOINTS

THEM?

THE PRESIDENT APPOINTS

THEM?

THE PRESIDENT APPOINTS

THEM FOR SIX YEARS.

Pat: WITH NO OVERSIGHT

BY CONGRESS?

NO OVERSIGHT BY

CONGRESS.

NO OVERSIGHT BY THE JUDICIAL

SYSTEM OR BY THE EXECUTIVE

BRANCH.

IT IS TRULY THE WORST -- I

WOULD EXPECT THAT IN STALIN

IST RUSSIA.

I OFTEN SAY I CAN'T BELIEVE

THIS IS HAPPENING IN

AMERICA.

BUT THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

WE SET ASIDE A WORLD VIEW,

THE CONCEPT OF A FIXED

TRUTH, WITH A RULE OF LAW.

WHERE WE THE PEOPLE GRANT

POWER TO GOVERNMENT.

GOVERNMENT DOES NOT GRANT

LIBERTY TO WE THE PEOPLE.

Pat: DR. GREY, I'M

TELLING YOU, HE HAS ALL OF

THESE PAPERS HERE,

PHYSICIANS REFORM,

CONSULTING THE GORDION

KNOT.

PATIENT-CENTERED FISCAL

RESPONSIBLE APPROACHES, AND

THE BOOK IS "THE BATTLE FOR

AMERICA'S SOUL."

IT'S HEAVY READING, BUT IT'S

VERY INTERESTING.

SO IT IS AVAILABLE.

IT IS AVAILABLE THROUGH

MY NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS

physicianforreform.org AND

THERE IS ALSO A D.V.D. THEY

CAN ORDER WITH THIS.

Pat: AND YOU CAN GO TO

cbn.com AND YOU CAN PICK IT

UP.

IF THAT DOESN'T SCARE THE

DAY LIGHTS OUT OF YOU, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL.

DR. GREY, THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME.

Pat: TERRY, ARE YOU

HORRIFIED?

Terry: I'M PROPERLY

HORRIFIED.

IT BOGGLES THE MIND, DOESN'T

IT?

COMING UP, A 21-YEAR-OLD

GETS A SHOCKING DIAGNOSIS.

THE DOCTOR LOOKED AT ME

AND SAID AFTER THEIR

EXTENSIVE RESEARCH AND THEIR

WORK, THAT THEY SAID I HAVE

A.L.S.

IT WAS A SHOCK WHEN I FIRST

HEARD IT.

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I EVER

SAW MY GRANDFATHER CRY.

Terry: HE IS GIVEN TWO

YEARS TO LIVE, BUT YOU'LL

SEE HOW HE DEFIES DEATH, AND

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: EVERY BIRTHDAY

IS NOTHING SHORT OF A

MIRACLE FOR CHARLES GOOD

MAN.

AT JUST 21 YEARS OLD, HE WAS

TOLD THAT EVERY DREAM HE HAD

FOR THE FUTURE WAS

IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE HE HAD

LOU GEHRIG'S DISEASE.

MY PARENTS STRUGGLED WITH

DRUG, AND AT 14 MONTHS, I

WAS ADOPTED BY MY

GRANDPARENTS.

I GREW UP IN A VERY

FAITH-DRIVEN HOME.

I KNEW THE WORLD OF GOD.

I WENT TO DUDLEY HIGH

SCHOOL, IN NORTH CAROLINA,

AND PLAYED SOME SPORTS.

ACTUALLY ONE A STATE

CHAMPIONSHIP IN 1966.

AND I GOT A FULL SCHOLARSHIP

IN 1997.

MY WHOLE LIFE I WANTED TO BE

A LAWYER.

I WANTED TO BE BE A PUBLIC

DEFENDER AND PERHAPS PARLAY

THAT INTO A LIFE OF

POLITICS.

IT WAS IN MY SENIOR YEAR, AS

I WAS PREPARING TO GET READY

TO GO TO LAW SCHOOL, I HAD

EVERYTHING TOGETHER.

I KNEW I WAS GOING TO BE

THIS GREAT LAWYER.

I STARTED TO EXPERIENCE SOME

NUMBNESS IN HIGH HANDS.

I ASSUMED IT WAS SOME TYPE

OF CARPAL TUNNEL.

I DID A LOT.

I WENT TO A DOCTOR, AND

AFTER A COUPLE OF BATTERIES

OF TESTS AND SEEING A FEW

DOCTORS, I BEGAN TO GET THIS

DIAGNOSIS.

I SAT IN THERE WITH MY

GRANDFATHER AND MY MOTHER.

THE DOCTOR LOOKED AT ME AND

SAID AFTER THEIR EXTENSIVE

RESEARCH AND THEIR WORK,

THAT THEY SAID THAT I HAVE

A.L.S.

THE DOCTOR TOLD ME THAT I

HAD TWO YEARS TO LIVE.

IT WAS A SHOCK WHEN I FIRST

HEARD IT.

THE FIRST TIME I EVER SAW MY

GRANDFATHER CRY.

THERE I WAS, 21 YEARS OLD,

2001, AND IT SEEMED LIKE MY

DREAMS WERE DASHED.

THE THINGS THAT I WANTED TO

DO IN MY LIFE.

FRIENDS WERE CALLING ME AND

TELLING ME LET IT GO, LET GO

OF SCHOOL.

BUT THERE IS SOMETHING

INSIDE OF ME THAT SAID THIS

COULDN'T BE BE IT.

I MADE UP MY MIND THAT

EVENING I WOULD GO BACK TO

SCHOOL.

WAKE FOREST WAS ABOUT 25

MINUTES FROM GREENSBORO.

IT WAS ABOUT 4:00 IN THE

MORNING, AT McDONALD'S,

AND WE SAT THERE AND I HAD

TEARS EN MY EYES BECAUSE I

STILL WAS TRYING TO DEAL

WITH THIS NEWS.

HE BEGAN TO PRAY WITH ME,

AND HE SAID I REALLY BELIEVE

THIS IS GOD CONFIRMING A

CALL ON YOUR LIFE.

WHEN I MADE IT TO MY ROOM ON

THAT EVENING, I SAID THIS TO

GOD, I SAID, GOD, IF IT BE

JUST TWO YEARS, I'LL GIVE IT

TO YOU.

I KNEW THERE WAS SOME KIND

OF CALLING IN MY LIFE.

MY GRANDPARENTS HAVE

PICTURES OF ME PREACHING IN

THE VACUUM CLEANER.

THE PASSION AND PURPOSE GOT

RENEWED IN MY LIFE.

I GOT TO EMERY, GOT INTO THE

SEMINARY, BUT DIDN'T GET

INTO THE LAW SCHOOL.

I RECOGNIZED IT WAS GOD JUST

ORDERING MY STEPS.

YOU'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND,

THE PROCESS FOR ME TO GET MY

MASTERS AND DEMOCRATIC

MASTERS AND MY DOCTORATE, I

COULDN'T WRITE.

I HAD TO HAVE A NOTE TAKER.

HERE I AM 11 YEARS AFTER THE

FACT, AND THE DOCTORS SAID

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TWO

YEARS.

GOD HAS BEEN MORE THAN

FAITHFUL.

I WAS ABLE TO PASTOR TWO

CHURCHES, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO

COMPLETE MY MASTER'S OF

DIVINITY AND A DOCTORATE

DEGREE.

MY SCHEDULE NOW IS CRAZY.

FROM PASTORING A

CONGREGATION THAT EXCEEDS

3700, TO TRAVELLING

THROUGHOUT THIS COUNTRY

PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD.

THE REASON I'M SO PASSIONATE

IS I BELIEVE MY LIFE IS

BECAUSE OF THE PROMISE I

MADE TO GOD.

I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO TAKE

HEAVY MEDICATION.

JUST TO WAKE UP ANOTHER DAY

MEANS THERE IS HOPE.

TO BE ABLE TO PROGRESS AND

MOVE WHEN OTHERS SAID I

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO BE HERE,

IS HOPE.

I MAY WAKE UP WITH SOME SORT

OF SIGH EFFECTS, BUT I DO

NOT ALLOW THE SIDE EFFECTS

TO STOP ME FROM PROGRESSING.

I'M JUST THANKFUL FOR ANY

DAY BECAUSE THAT'S A LOT

MORE THAN DOCTORS GAVE ME.

GOD ULTIMATELY IS A GOD OF

HOPE, A GOD OF PEACE, AND A

GOD OF JOY.

Terry: AMAZING

ATTITUDE, BUT UNBELIEVABLE

SITUATION.

Pat: LOU GEHRIG'S

DISEASE, THERE IS JUST NO

HEALING FOR IT.

THAT IS A MIRACLE.

IT IS THE MOST AWFUL

DISEASE, AND IT GOES ON AND

ON, AND THE PEOPLE, BEFORE

LONG, CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

THAT IS A MIRACLE OF GOD.

Terry: IT REALLY,

REALLY IS A MIRACLE OF GOD.

THIS IS DAVID, WHO LIVES IN

STATIN ISLAND, NEW YORK.

HE SUFFERED FROM A FRACTURED

KNEE.

IT WAS PAINFUL AND SO

SWOLLEN, HE COULDN'T BEND IT

OR WALK ON IT.

THE DOCTORS OFFERED HIM PAIN

MEDICATIONS BY INJECTION.

HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM.

PAT, YOU SAID, YOU TWISTED

YOUR KNEE SOMEHOW AND YOU

HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF PAIN.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR KNEE,

AND YOU'LL FEEL WARMTH.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU

ARE HEALED.

AS DAVID RECEIVED THAT WORD,

HE HEARD A CRACKING SOUND.

IMMEDIATELY THE PAIN AND

SWELLING WENT AWAY.

AND HE WAS ABLE TO WALK AND

HE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO TAKE

THE PAIN MEDICATIONS

ANYMORE.

THAT'S A MIRACLE.

Pat: TERRY, I STAND

AMAZED AT THE POWER OF GOD

AND THE LOVE OF GOD.

BETTY, WHO LIVED IN MERRITT,

MISSISSIPPI, WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH C.O.P.D. -- THAT'S THE

COMMERCIAL WITH THE ELEPHANT

SITTING ON THE GUY'S CHEST.

I WOULDN'T LIKE AN ELEPHANT

SITTING ON ME.

ANYWAY, BETTY HAD THE

ELEPHANT ON HER.

SHE SAID SHE FELT LIKE

SOMEBODY WAS SITTING ON HER

CHEST.

THIS LAST MONTH SHE WAS

WATCHING THE PROGRAM, AND

YOU HAD THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, "THERE IS SOME

KIND OF LUNG CONDITION -- I

DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF IT --

BUT GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

TAKE A DEEP BREATH.

YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED."

BETTY FELT A TINGLING IN HER

CHEST, AND THE PRESSURE

LEFT, AND PRAISE GOD, SHE IS

HEALED.

MERRITT, MISSISSIPPI.

IT IS GREAT.

Terry: LET'S PRAY.

Pat: YOU WANT TO DO

THAT?

Terry: I WANT TO DO

THAT.

I THINK THERE ARE LOTS OF

PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEEDS, AND

WE HOPE THAT THE THINGS THAT

HAVE BEEN SHARED WILL

ENCOURAGE YOU TO BELIEVE --

Pat: FOLKS, LET ME TELL

YOU THIS: GOD PUT THE

GALAXIES IN SPACE.

THERE ARE A MILLION TRILLION

STARS IN THE HEAVENS, AND HE

PUT THEM ALL THERE AND HE

KNOWS THEM ALL BY NAME.

HE KNOWS YOU BY NAME.

HE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE, WHERE

YOU LIVE, AND WHAT'S WRONG

WITH YOU.

AND HE LOVES YOU.

AND HE IS WAITING FOR YOU TO

OPEN YOUR HEART TO HIM AND

RECEIVE WHAT HE WANTS TO

GIVE YOU.

DON'T FIGHT IT.

JUST SAY, LORD, I RECEIVE,

AND TAKE IT AND BE BLESSED.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

FOR YOU.

FATHER, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS -- THERE IS A LEFT

LUNG, A COLLAPSED LEFT LUNG

RIGHT NOW, PUT YOUR HAND ON

YOUR CHEST.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THAT

LUNG IS FILLED WITH AIR AND

IS HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE A CHRONIC

SINUS CONDITION.

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG

WITH THE STRUCTURE OF YOUR

SINUSES.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOU'LL BEGIN TO FEEL ALMOST

LIKE A BUZZING IN YOUR SINUS

CAVITY, IN YOUR FACE, AROUND

THE ORBIT OF YOUR EYES.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

Pat: THERE IS A MAN --

YOU'VE GOT WHAT IS CALLED

URINARY IN CO CON

CONTINANCE, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU.

YOU ARE HEALED IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU HAVE SOME

KIND OF A CONDITION WERE YOU

YOUR SPINE, AND WHATEVER

THAT IS AFFECTS YOUR

STOMACH.

IT IS ALL VERY

LIFE-INTERRUPTING.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

YOUR FOOD WILL DIGEST

PROPERLY, AND YOU'LL BE ABLE

TO STAND PROPERLY, AND THERE

WILL BE NO MORE PAINS FOR

YOU.

Pat: YOU HAVE A THYROID

CONDITION.

RIGHT NOW PUT YOUR HAND ON

YOUR THROAT IN THE NAME OF

JESUS BE MADE WHOLE.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE SOME LYMPH GLANDS

THAT ARE SWOLLEN.

AND YOU HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN TO

THE DOCTOR BECAUSE YOU'RE

FEARFUL OF IT.

BUT GOD IS THEALG THAT

HEALING THAT RIGHT NOW.

Pat: GOD, BLESS THE

PEOPLE.

APPEAR TO THEM, AND SHOW

THEM YOUR LOVE IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, PRAISE THE

LORD.

WILL YOU PLEASE PRAISE HIM?

WILL YOU GIVE HIM THANKS.

IF YOU NEED MORE PRAYER,

SOMEBODY TO PRAY WITH YOU,

PICK UP THE PHONE.

WE'VE GOT FOLKS ON THE

PHONE.

THEY LOVE YOU.

MANY OF THEM HAVE HAD THE

SAME CONDITION YOU'VE HAD.

THEY'VE HAD HEALINGS.

THEY'VE HAD MIRACLES OF GOD,

AND THEY BELIEVE GOD.

SO PICK UP THE PHONE.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

YOU CAN CALL RIGHT NOW.

GOD HEARS AND GOD ANSWERS.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

MAN FORCES HIS GIRLFRIEND TO

GET AN ABORTION AND THEN HE

REGRETS IT.

I GOT THIS DARK VISION OF

MINE.

I COULD SEE MYSELF WITH A

GUN.

AND BASICALLY I TOOK A GUN

AND PUT THE GUN TO A BABY'S

HEAD, AND I COULD HEAR THE

EXPLOSION TAKE PLACE, AND

THAT'S WHEN EVERYTHING JUST

HIT ME FULL FORCE, YOU JUST

TOOK A LIFE.

Terry: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS

DISMISSED WHEATON COLLEGE'S

LAWSUIT AGAINST THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION'S HEALTH CARE

MANDATE.

THE MANDATE REQUIRES

RELIGIOUS GROUPS TO PROVIDE

CONTRACEPTION COVERAGE IN

THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE

PLANS.

THE GOVERNMENT THREW OUT THE

SUIT AFTER THEY OFFERED AN

EXEMPTION TO THE COLLEGES.

THAT GIVES THEM ONE YEAR TO

COMPLY.

TEENS WHO USE POT COULD PAY

FOR IT LATER IN LIFE.

A NEW STUDY SUGGESTS

TEENAGERS WHO ROUTINELY

SMOKE MARIJUANA SUFFER A

LONG-TERM DROP IN I.Q.

PARTICIPANTS OVER THE AGE OF

18 DID NOT HAVE THE SAME

I.Q. DIP.

POT IS THE MOST POPULAR

ILLEGAL DRUG WORLDWIDE.

23% OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

IN THE U.S. SAY THEY HAVE

RECENTLY SMOKED MARIJUANA.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: MAURICE HUFF WAS

RELIEVED WHEN HIS GIRLFRIEND

HAD HAD AN ABORTION.

HE FELT AS IF HE WAS OFF THE

HOOK BECAUSE HE DIDN'T WANT

TO MARRY HER.

THEN THE MOTHER OF HIS CHILD

TOLD HIM SOMETHING THAT

CHANGED EVERYTHING FOR HIM.

THE BABY SHE HAD ABORTED WAS

A BOY.

WHEN SHE GAVE ME AN

ULTIMATUM, THE ULTIMATUM WAS

EITHER WE GET MARRIED OR SHE

WAS GOING TO HAVE AN

ABORTION.

MY DECISION WAS THAT I WAS

NOT GOING TO GET MARRIED.

Reporter: MORE THAN

ANYTHING, MAURICE HUFF

WANTED TO BE A TEACHER.

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, HE

ENLISTED IN THE AIR FORCE TO

PAY FOR COLLEGE.

BUT AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM HIS

GIRLFRIEND JE JEOPARDIZED

HIS PLANS.

SHE WAS PREGNANT.

SHE BACKED ME INTO A

CORNER.

I FELT CONFUSED AND ANGRY.

Reporter: MAURICE WAS A

CHRISTIAN AND HE KNEW

ABORTION WAS WRONG.

ONCE I WAS FACED WITH

THAT DECISION, WITH MARRIAGE

HANGING OVER MY HEAD, I

LOOKED AT ABORTION WAS MY

ONLY WAY OUT.

Reporter: SO HE AND HIS

GIRLFRIEND WENT TO THE

CLINIC, AND THE ABORTION WAS

PERFORMED.

FOR A WHILE, MAURICE WAS

RELIEVED, THEN HIS

GIRLFRIEND SAID SOMETHING

THAT LEFT HIM STUNNED.

SHE SAID THE CHILD WOULD

HAVE BEEN A BOY.

AND THAT REALLY HIT HOME

HARD.

WHEN SHE SAID THE CHILD

WOULD HAVE BEEN A BOY.

I THINK THAT'S WHEN, FOR THE

FIRST TIME THROUGH THIS

WHOLE ORDEAL, I REALLY

STARTED THINKING OF THIS NOT

JUST BEING AN ABORTION, BUT

REALLY BEING A LIFE.

THEN ALL OF THESE THINGS

STARTED GOING THROUGH MY

MIND. I COULD HAVE HAD A

SON.

Reporter: AND WHEN HE

GOT HOME, HE HAD A VISION.

I GOT THIS DARK VISION OF

MINE.

I COULD SEE MYSELF WITH A

GUN.

AND BASICALLY I TOOK A GUN

AND PUT THE GUN TO A BABY'S

HEAD.

I COULD FEEL THE EXPLOSION

TAKE PLACE.

THAT'S WHEN EVERYTHING JUST

HIT ME FULL FORCE.

YOU JUST TOOK A LIFE.

I FELT WORTHLESS.

I FELT, LIKE, YOU KNOW, YOU

TOOK A LIFE.

SO WHY SHOULD YOU BE

LIVING.

YOU DON'T DESERVE TO LIVE.

Reporter: HE AND HIS

GIRLFRIEND EVENTUALLY BROKE

UP, BUT THE GUILT STILL

HAUNTED HIM DAILY.

THE EMPTINESS THAT I

FELT, I WOULDN'T WISH IT ON

ANYONE.

IT WAS JUST A TOTAL EMPTY

FEELING.

SAD, GUT GUT-WRENCHING

FEELING.

MORE THAN ANYTHING IT WAS

TREMENDOUS, TREMENDOUS

GUILT.

Reporter: MAURICE GREW

TIRED OF DAYS FILLED WITH

ANXIETY AND SLEEPLESS

NIGHTS.

SO HE RETURNED TO THE ONE

PLACE WHERE HE EXPERIENCED

PEACE, HIS FAITH IN CHRIST.

I WAS READING SCRIPTURES

ABOUT FORGIVENESS,

SCRIPTURES ABOUT

RESTORATION, SCRIPTURES

ABOUT HEALING.

THE MORE I READ THE BIBLE,

THE BETTER I WAS BEGINNING

TO FEEL.

YOU KNOW, A LOT OF THE GUILT

WAS BEGINNING TO LIFT.

I WAS GETTING A BETTER

UNDERSTANDING OF GOD'S

FORGIVENESS, BUT I STILL HAD

HAD NOT FORGIVEN MYSELF

COMPLETELY.

Reporter: ONE DAY WHILE

HE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," TERRY TALKED ABOUT

USING WRITING TO HELP IN THE

HEALING PROCESS.

MAURICE DECIDED TO GIVE IT A

TRY.

EACH DAY I WOULD BEGIN TO

SORT OF WRITE MY THOUGHTS

ABOUT THE ABORTION, WHAT

HAPPENED.

AND THE MORE I BEGAN TO

WRITE, THE BETTER I WAS

FEELING.

ONE NIGHT I WAS SLEEPING AND

IT WAS PROBABLY ABOUT 3:00

IN THE MORNING.

I JUST WAS AWAKENED WITH A

WHOLE STORY LINE FOR A

BOOK.

AND SO I JUMPED OUT OF BED

AND JUST STARTED WRITING A

WHOLE STORY RELATED TO THIS

ABORTION.

Reporter: MAURICE

EVENTUALLY WROTE TWO BOOKS:

"THE CHOICE THAT HAUNTS

FOREVER," AND "THE CHOICE

THAT NO LONGER HAUNTS."

HE IS NOW HAPPILY MARRIED

AND HAS TWO CHILDREN.

HE SAYS HE IS THANKFUL FOR

GOD'S FORGIVENESS.

THAT'S THE AWESOMENESS OF

GOD.

IS THAT NO MATTER WHAT WE

DO, GOD IS A GOD OF MERCY

AND HE'S A GOD OF

FORGIVENESS.

EVEN IF YOU MAKE THIS

MISTAKE, YOU DON'T HAVE TO

WALLOW IN GUILT.

ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS, AND

GOD WILL GRANT YOU

FORGIVENESS.

Terry: GOD IS THE GOD

OF MERCY AND GRACE.

HE LOVES US SO MUCH.

HE'S GOT A PLAN AND A

PURPOSE.

IF WE JUST WOULD LISTEN, AND

LET HIM LOVE US AND LOVE HIM

IN RETURN, WHAT HEARTACHE WE

WOULD SAVE OURSELVES.

TODAY YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF

IN A SCENARIO THAT WAS NOT

THE PLAN THAT YOU HAD.

DOING THE RIGHT THING WILL

GET YOU TO THE RIGHT PLACE.

IF YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT

GOD'S WORD HAS TO SAY, OR IF

YOU FIND YOURSELF ALONE AND

YOU'VE GOT A PREGNANCY, WE'D

LOVE TO SEND YOU THIS

BOOKLET.

IT'S CALLED "YOU'RE NOT

ALONE."

ASK GOD THE RIGHT THING TO

DO.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY I'D LIKE THE

"YOU'RE NOT ALONE"

PAMPHLET.

AND WE'LL GET IT OUT TO YOU,

FREE OF CHARGE, BY THE WAY.

Pat: STILL AHEAD, YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

HOPE WANTS TO KNOW ARE EVIL

SPIRITS OMNI PRESENT AND

WHEN THEY TEMPT YOU, ARE YOU

THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD

THEY'RE TEMPTING?

WE'LL GIVE A SHOT AT HOPE'S

QUESTION AND GIVE AN ANSWER

WHEN WE COME BACK.

GUATEMALA, WE MET A BOY

WHO HAD TO CARRY SOMETHING

ELSE TO CLASS, A BUCKET OF

WATER.

Reporter: VERY EARLY

EVERY MORNING, 11-YEAR-OLD

BERTO AND HIS

FATHER TAKE A

TEDIOUS ONE-HOUR TREK UP A

MOUNTAIN TO COLLECT

WATER.

AND COMING DOWN THE MOUNTAIN

WITH BUCKETS FULL OF WATER

CAN BE EVEN MORE TRICKY.

ONCE WE WENT UP TO GET

WATER AND I DROPPED MY

BUCKET.

WE HAD TO CLIMB UP AGAIN.

Reporter: BUT BERTO AND

HIS DAD DON'T JUST GET WATER

FOR THEMSELVES.

THEY SHARE A BUCKET WITH

BERTO'S SCHOOL, WHICH HAS

MORE THAN 100 STUDENTS AND

NO FRESH WATER SUPPLY.

ONCE I DRANK FROM THE

WATER AT SCHOOL AND MY

STOMACH BEGAN TO HURT.

AND THE DOCTOR SAID THAT IT

WAS CAUSED BY THE DIRTY

WATER I USED TO DRINK AT

SCHOOL.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" DECIDED TO DIG A

WELL RIGHT ON THE GROUNDS OF

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD SCHOOL.

AND WE EVEN PROVIDED THE

CHILDREN WITH AN ELECTRIC

PUMP, SINKS, AND FAUCETS, SO

THEY CAN HAVE EASY ACCESS TO

CLEAN WATER.

THAT MEANS NO MORE TRIPS TO

THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN FOR

BERTO.

NOW THAT I DON'T HAVE TO

GO UP THE MOUNTAIN TO GET

WATER, I GET UP A LITTLE

LATER, I EAT A BETTER

BREAKFAST, AND I FINISH MY

HOMEWORK ON TIME.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL

OF YOU WHO GAVE US THE

WATER.

Pat: WHEW!

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT GIVING

A CUP OF COLD WATER.

WE HAVE DUG THOUSANDS OF

WELLS TO IMPOVERISHED

VILLAGES ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

A LITTLE FRESH WATER MAKES

ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE,

WE DO INVITE YOU TO JOIN OUR

"700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

AND WHEN YOU DO, I WANT TO

GIVE YOU, AS MY BLESSING TO

YOU, "THE THREE BLESSINGS."

THE THREE THINGS THAT I'VE

ASKED GOD FOR, LIKE LIFETIME

PRAYER REQUESTS.

IT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES AND

BLESS YOU.

WE'VE GOT A SHORT PERIOD OF

TIME FOR E-MAIL.

LET'S GO.

Terry: OUR FIRST E-MAIL

QUESTION IS FROM HOPE WHO

SAYS, "ARE EVIL SPIRITS OMNI

PRESENT.

WHEN THEY TEMPT YOU, ARE YOU

THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD

THAT THEY'RE TEMPTING?"

Pat: A DEVIL TOOK A

THIRD OF THE ANGELS,

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, OUT

OF HEAVEN.

HOW MANY THAT IS, I DON'T

KNOW.

SEVERAL HUNDRED MILLION -- I

DON'T KNOW.

BUT THERE'S A BUNCH OF

THEM.

THEY ARE HIS ARMY, AND

THEY'RE THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD.

BUT EACH LITTLE DEMON ISN'T,

QUOTE,"OMNI PRESENT."

EACH DEMON IS WORKING ON

SOME SPECIFIC ASSIGNMENT.

SO WHEN YOU'RE TEMPTED, THAT

DEMON IS WORKING ON YOU.

NOW, HIS BUDDIES AROUND THE

WORLD MAY BE DOING THE SAME

THING TO MILLIONS OF OTHER

PEOPLE, BUT THAT TEMPTING IS

COMING.

AND SO WHEN YOU SPEAK, YOU

NEED TO BIND SATAN -- BIND

SATAN, WHO IS THE HEAD OF

ALL OF THEM, AND THE FORCES

OF EVIL, AND YOU BIND THEM

ALL.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

KERI WHO SAYS, "MY

18-YEAR-OLD SON IS LAZY,

IRRESPONSIBLE, SENSITIVE,

AND HAS A TERRIBLE WORK

ETHIC.

WHILE MANY BOYS HIS AGE ARE

PREPARING FOR COLLEGE OR

WORKING, HE SITS HOME AND

COULD CARE LESS ABOUT

SCHOOL.

SINCE HE LIVES WITH HIS

FATHER AND ONLY VISITS ME

OCCASIONALLY, I DON'T KNOW

HOW TO INSTILL A SENSE OF

RESPONSIBILITY IN HIM.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: GET HIM IN THE

ARMY.

Terry: I THINK HE DOES

HAVE TO SIGN UP FOR THAT,

THOUGH.

Pat: TALK YOUR HUSBAND

INTO SIGNING HIM UP.

Terry: HE IS DOING A

GREAT DISSERVICE TO HIM,

REALLY.

THAT WILL AFFECT EVERY AREA

OF HIS LIFE.

Pat: HE WILL BE A

NO-GOOD BUM.

AND IF THE FATHER IS LETTING

HIM GET AWAY WITH IT --

MAYBE HE THINKS IS PARENTAL

LOVE OR SOMETIMES HE DOESN'T

CARE.

Terry: SOMETIMES IT IS

THE EASY WAY OUT.

Pat: DAD GOES TO WORK

AND THE KID STAYS HOME AND

VEGETATES.

ALL I CAN SAY IS YOU'RE

PREPARING THAT CHILD TO BE

DESTROYED DURING LATER IN

LIFE.

BECAUSE NOBODY IS GOING TO

HIRE HIM.

HE CAN'T KEEP A JOB.

ALL RIGHT, WHAT ELSE?

Terry: THIS IS FROM A

VIEWER WHO SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

AND I JUST FOUND OUT THAT MY

STEPSON JUST GOT HIS

GIRLFRIEND PREGNANT.

HE LIVES WITH HIS MOM.

WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

SAY."

Pat: YOU OUGHT TO PUT

YOUR ARM AROUND HIM AND TELL

HIM HE IS NOT THE FIRST ONE

WHO HAS DONE THAT.

TELL HIM THERE ARE CERTAIN

CHOICES, AND ADOPTION IS A

GOOD ONE, WITH A CHRISTIAN

HOME.

Terry: SHE DOESN'T SAY

HOW OLD HE IS, WHICH MAKES A

LITTLE BIT OF DIFFERENCE.

Pat: GRANTED, IF HE IS

14, IT IS DIFFERENT THAN IF

HE IS 20.

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT SOMETIMES TWO MISTAKES

DON'T ADD UP TO A GOOD

DECISION.

SO HE MAKES ONE WRONG

DECISION, AND THEN YOU GET

HIM INTO A BAD MARRIAGE AND

HE IS WORSE OFF.

TOMORROW, OUR "VOICE OF

HOPE" SERIES FOR SINGLES

CONTINUES.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PSALM: "FOR

YOU, LORD, ARE GOOD AND

READY TO FORGIVE AND

ABUNDANT IN MERCY TO ALL

THOSE WHO CALL UPON YOU."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOD BLESS YOU.
