YOU'RE FIVE FEET --

100 -- YOU'VE GOT HARDLY A

SPEC OF ATHLETIC ABILITY.

Reporter: MEET THE REAL

LIFE RUDY, AND FIND OUT WHAT

HAPPENED AFTER THE BIG

GAME.

PLUS, AN OPEN DOOR.

AND HE PULLED OUT THIS

ROLLED UP MAGAZINE.

Reporter: BECOMES A

SECRET ADDICTION.

I HAVE DESTROYED MY LIFE

AND THE LIFE OF ANOTHER

PERSON.

Reporter: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

( applause

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THE LAST TIME I LOOKED, IT'S

MONDAY.

Terry: IT IS.

YOU ARE CORRECT.

Pat: WERE YOU INVOLVED

IN SPORTS THIS WEEKEND?

Terry: OF COURSE.

OUR WHOLE WEEKEND.

THE REDSKINS LOOKED LIKE

THEY COULD BE MAKING A

TURN.

Pat: UNBELIEVABLE.

NEW QUARTERBACK, FANTASTIC.

Terry: THE PACKERS WILL

BE BACK.

NOT YESTERDAY.

Pat: SANCHEZ THREW ALL

KINDS OF TOUCHDOWNS, AND --

WHAT'S HIS FACE IS BACK WITH

DENVER AFTER -- PEYTON

MANNING.

THEY PAID HIM $95 MILLION OR

SOMETHING, BUT HE SCORED AND

SCORED AND SCORED.

HE WAS FABULOUS.

HE HAD A NERVE THING,.

Terry: THAT'S SCARY.

Pat: AND SEA SYRIAN

SERENA WILLIAMS, SHE IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

IT WAS THREE SETS AND IT WAS

DOWN TO THE WIRE, AND SHE

PULLED OFF SOME FABULOUS

SHOTS.

AND IT WAS UNBELIEVAB

Pat: IT'S READY FOR

AMERICA.

THE NEWS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

ADVOCATES AND CHRISTIANS

HAVE BEEN HOPING FOR FOR

YEARS.

IN A SURPRISE MOVE, AN

IRANIAN COURT RELEASED

IMPRISONED PASTOR US YOUCEF

NARDICANI.

Reporter: THIS IS THE

SCENE CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD HAVE BEEN PRAYING TO

SEE.

PASTOR US YUSEF

NARDARKHANI.

IT IS A MIRACLE, THREE YEARS

IN THE MAKING.

AN IRANIAN COURT SENTENCED

HIM TO DEATH FOR LEAVING

ISLAM FOR CHRISTIAN.

WHEN ASKED TO RESPENT BY THE

JUDGES, USEF STATED, "REPENT

MEANS TO RETURN.

WHAT SHOULD I RETURN TO, TO

THE BLASPHEMY I HAD BEFORE

MY BELIEF IN JESUS CHRIST?"

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE HAS BEEN CLOSELY

INVOLVED IN EFFORTS TO

RELEASE PASTOR NARD

NARDARKANI.

AND INTERNATIONAL OUTCRY PUT

PRESSURE ON IRANIAN REGINA.

THEN THIS WEEKEND CAME A

STARTLING DECISION.

THE JUDGE ACQUITTED HIM OF

APOSTASY, BUT SENTENCED HIM

TO TIME ALREADY SERVED.

USEF IS NOW FREE, BUT HE IS

STILL IN GREAT DANGER.

A FORMER PRESIDENT O TOLD

CBN NEWS NEWS HE MAY BE IN

MORE DANGER THAN BEFORE.

SOMEONE MAY BE JUDICIALLY

ACQUITTED OR RELEASED ON A

TECHNICALITY, BUT THEIR

LIVES ARE UNDER THREAT.

THEY CAN SIMPLY DISAPPEAR OR

THEY CAN BE TORTURED.

BY NO MEANS IS PASTOR USEF'S

SITUATION FREE AND CLEAR,

EVEN IF HE IS ACQUITTED OF

THESE CHARGES.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THIS IS A GREAT

VICTORY.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE WORKED

TIRELESSLY TO SEE PASTOR

YUSEF NARDARKHANI SET FREE.

THIS IS A TREMENDOUS

VICTORY?

Reporter: TREMENDOUS

AND UNEXPECTED.

YOU AND I WERE TOGETHER ON

FRIDAY.

WE DID NOT EXPECT THIS

DECISION.

THE COURT CONVICTED HIM ON A

LESSER CHARGE AND GAVE HIM

TIME SERVED, AND HE WALKED

OUT OF THAT JAIL FREE.

I'VE GOT TO SAY THIS, WE HAD

A GLOBAL EFFORT HERE ON THIS

BEHALF.

NOT ONLY WITH THE UNITED

STATES STATE DEPARTMENT AND

SECRETARY OF STATE CLINTON,

BUT ALSO THE GOVERNMENTS OF

BRAZIL AND GERMAN.

PASTOR YUSEF NARDARKHANI WAS

MENTIONED ON SEVERAL

OCCASIONS.

I'VE GOT TO GIVE A BIG HAND

TO OUR YOUNGER LAWYERS, MOST

OF THEM REGENT UNIVERSITY

GRADUATES, INCLUDING MY SON

AND MATT CLARK, ALL OF WHICH

PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE IN THE

RELEASE OF HIS PASTOR FROM

THREE YEARS OF

INCARCERATION.

IT IS A MAJOR VICTORY.

BUT AS THE REPORT JUST SAID,

WE HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL

BECAUSE HIS LIFE CAN BE PUT

IN JEOPARDY, AND THE OTHER

IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THIS,

PAT, IS THIS DECISION --

PEOPLE THINK IT IS COMING

FROM THE JUDGE.

IT DIDN'T COME FROM THE

JUDGE.

THIS CAME FROM THE AYATOLLAH

HIMSELF.

Pat: WELL, CAN YOU GET

THAT MAN OUT OF THE COUNTRY,

DO YOU SUPPOSE?

I UNDERSTAND ANY PERSON ON

THE STREET CAN SHOOT HIM.

Reporter: WELL, LOOK,

AS THE GENTLEMAN FROM "OPEN

DOOR" SAID, THE RISK IS

HIGH.

THE PASTOR HASN'T AT THIS

POINT INDICATED HE WANTS TO

LEAVE.

HE HAD A SUCCESSFUL MINISTRY

IN IRAN, AND THERE ARE A LOT

OF CHRISTIANS UNDERGROUND IN

IRAQ, AND THE FACT HIS CASE

RECEIVED SO MUCH COVERAGE,

INCLUDING CBN, AND I WANT TO

THANK YOU, BUT IT PUTS THE

GOVERNMENT IN A PERPLEXING

SITUATION.

PEOPLE ARE WATCHING IT.

IF DANGER WERE TO COME TO

THE PASTOR, IT WOULD

EMBARRASS THAT REGIME.

HE'LL MAKE THAT DECISION.

THAT'S BETWEEN HIS FAMILY,

HIM, AND THE LORD, AND

THEY'LL MAKE THE RIGHT

DECISION FOR HIM AND HIS

FAMILY AND HIS CHRISTIANS.

BUT IT WAS A GLOBAL

VICTORY.

I CALL THIS THE MEDIA

ADVOCACY.

THERE WAS VERY LITTLE, AS

YOU CAN IMAGINE, WE WERE

ABLE TO DO IN THE COURTROOM,

BUT WE WERE ABLE TO

GALVANIZE ATTENTION.

Pat: THIS THING REALLY

PUT THE SCREWS TO THE

ISLAMIC PEOPLE.

THAT THEY TOOK SOMEBODY WHO

BECAME A CHRISTIAN -- THAT

WAS HIS ONLY OFFENSE, HE

BECAME A CHRISTIAN -- AND IN

EXCHANGE FOR THAT THEY SAY

WE'RE GOING TO EXECUTE YOU.

THAT GIVES A LOT TO ALL OF

THIS RELIGION OF PEACE THEY

WERE PUTTING AROUND THE

WORLD.

IT TOOK AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT

OF EFFORT.

THAT WAS AN ENORMOUS EFFORT

TO GET THOSE PEOPLE TO

CHANGE THEIR MIND.

MAYBE IT WILL BE THE FIRST

OF MANY.

LET'S HOPE SO.

Reporter: WE WANT TO

REMEMBER THERE ARE OTHERS IN

JAIL IN IRAN.

EGYPT HAS A HORRIBLE

SITUATION.

YOU SAW IT LAST WEEK WITH

EXECUTIONS BEING DONE BY THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

PAT, YOU SAID SOMETHING THAT

IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE

NEED TO UNDERLINE.

WE ARE THRILLED FOR THE

PASTOR AND HIS FAMILY, BUT

THERE ARE OTHERS IN NEED.

WE NEED TO NOT STOP FOR A

MOMENT.

WE MUST CONTINUE TO BRING

GLOBAL ATTENTION TO THIS.

WE MUST CONTINUE

FORTHRIGHTLY DEMANDING

JUSTICE FOR THESE

INDIVIDUALS.

WE HAD GOVERNMENTS FROM

BRAZIL, TO GERMANY, TO THE

EUROPEAN UNION, TO THE STATE

DEPARTMENT HERE, TO THE VERY

FLOOR OF THE UNITED NATIONS

INVOLVED IN THIS.

THE END RESULT WAS GREAT.

I NEED TO SAY THIS, OUR

OFFICES AROUND THE GLOBAL

WERE MOBILIZED ON THIS.

OUR OFFICES IN RUSSIA, WHEN

ARE STARTED BACK IN 1997,

AND OUR OFFICES IN

JERUSALEM, ALL OF THOSE

OFFICES FULLY ENGAGED IN

THIS.

Pat: IT IS A GREAT

VICTORY, AND IT WILL COME

THROUGH AS A PROPAGANDA,

TRYING FOR THE IRAN REGIME,

BUT MAYBE -- MAYBE THEY WILL

SAY WE BETTER EASE UP A

LITTLE BIT.

IN SO DOING, IT WILL BLESS A

NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS.

JAY, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE PRAISE THE LORD FOR THIS

RULING FOR THIS VERY, VERY

BRAVE PASTOR.

LEE WEBB HAS MORE OF OUR TOP

STORIES FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM, LEE?

Lee: PAT, WE HAVE

ANOTHER STORY RELATED TO THE

ONE YOU AND JAY WERE JUST

TALKING ABOUT.

A YOUNG PAKISTANI CHRISTIAN

GIRL IS CELEBRATING HER

RELEASE FROM JAIL.

THE 14-YEAR-OLD WAS ARRESTED

AFTER A GROUP OF ANGRY

MUSLIMS ACCUSED OF BURNING A

QURAN.

SHE LEFT THE PRISON WITH A

BLANKETS OVER HER FACE AND

SURROUNDED BY SECURITY.

SOME OF HER FORMER NEIGHBORS

SAY THEY DON'T THINK HER

FAMILY WILL RETURN TO HER

HOME.

A MUSLIM CLERIC FROM HER

NEIGHBORHOOD HAS BEEN

ARRESTED FOR PLANNING

EVIDENCE TO INCRIMINATE

HER.

WITNESSES SAY HE DID IT TO

TRY TO PUSH CHRISTIANS OUT

OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

HE NOW FACES BLASPHEMY

CHARGES OF HIS OWN.

PAT?

Pat: YOU KNOW, JAY, I

HAD SOME BUSINESS DEALINGS

IN PAKISTAN.

I WAS GOING TO ACQUIRE OF

ANOTHER ORGANIZATION OF

CELLULAR TELEPHONE COMPANY

IN PAKISTAN.

AND I MET WITH SOME OF THE

PEOPLE.

THEY'RE TRAINED IN BRITISH

SCHOOLS.

SOME OF THEM ARE TRAINED IN

MISSION SCHOOLS.

VERY NICE, CH ACCOMMODATING

PEOPLE.

I CANNOT UNDERSTAND SOME OF

THE CRAZINESS THAT HAS NOW

SEIZED PAKISTAN.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT FROM

WHAT I'VE LEARNED.

IT WAS THE TIME OF BENAZIR

BHUTTO, AND, OF COURSE, SHE

WAS ASSASSINATED.

I KNOW THEY'RE HAVING

TROUBLE IN KARACHI, BUT

NEVERTHELESS, I JUST BELIEVE

THERE HAS GOT TO BE SOME

REASON IN PAKISTAN.

THE PAKISTANIS MUST REVOLT

OR TURN AGAINST THIS

MILITANT ISLAM THAT SAYS WE

WILL EXECUTE SOME LITTLE

GIRL BECAUSE OF QUOTE

INSULTING THE PROPHET.

IF THE PROPHET IS THE

PROPHET, HE IS MAN OF GOD.

HE CAN STAND ON HIS OWN.

IT IS LIKE A LION.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DEFEND A

LION; YOU JUST TURN HIM

LOOSE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO KILL

LITTLE GIRLS TO DEFEND THE

PROPHET OR FOR DEFACING THE

QURAN.

I CONGRATULATE THE

PAKISTANIS, AND I HOPE

THEY'LL COME BACK TO THE

SAME REASON I DISPLAY WHEN I

WAS THERE IN THEIR COUNTRY.

LEE?

Lee: PRESIDENT OBAMA

GAINED A NARROW FUNDRAISING

VICTORY OR MITT ROMNEY IN

AUGUST.

THE DEMOCRATS RAISING OVER

$114 MILLION, WHILE ROMNEY

AND THE REPUBLICANS BROUGHT

IN JUST UNDER $112 MILLION.

AND THE PRESIDENT GAINED A

POST-CONVENTION BOUNCE IN

THE POLLS.

THE RASMUSSEN SURVEY SHOWS

HIM LEADING ROMNEY 49% TO

45%.

BUT UNEMPLOYMENT IS STILL

OVER 8%, AND 368,000 PEOPLE

DROPPED OUT OF THE

WORKFORCE.

BOTH CANDIDATES ARE HITTING

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL IN

IMPORTANT SWING STATES.

THE PRESIDENT SPENT THE

WEEKEND IN FLORIDA.

ROMNEY IS HEADING TO OHIO

AFTER CAMPAIGNING IN

VIRGINIA SATURDAY.

GOLD IS ON THE MOVE AGAIN.

THE PRECIOUS METAL HIT ITS

HIGHEST PRICE, AROUND

$1740.

THEY THINK IT COULD GO ABOVE

ITS RECORD HIGH OF $1920.

YOU BELIEVE, PAT?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY, I

AGREE.

IF YOU WERE WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM A FEW WEEKS AGO, YOU

HEARD ME SAY THAT GOLD WAS

GETTING READY TO TAKE OFF.

Terry: I REMEMBER.

Pat: YOU DO REMEMBER

THAT?

JOHN PAULSEN IS COMING IN,

AND SORUS IS COMING IN --

THEY'RE BIG, BIG BUYERS OF

GOLD.

THERE IS SOMETHING THAT

ACTUALLY TRACKS THE PRICE OF

GOLD.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO INTO

THE FUTURES MARKET TO BUY

GOLD.

YOU CAN GET SHARES.

IT IS GETTING HIGHER AND

HIGHER AND HIGHER.

I TOLD YOU IT WOULD GO TO

$1800 YEARS AGO.

IT HAS CAUSED $1800.

IT'S A LITTLE BEHIND THAT

RIGHT NOW, BUT IT IS TAKING

OFF WITH A BIG BOUNCE.

AND SO IS SILVER.

THE LAST TIME I LOOKED,

SILVER WAS $33 AN OUNCE AND

STILL GOING UP.

IT SAYS SOMETHING THAT THE

INVESTMENT COMMUNITY, THE

SMART MONEY, IS BETTING ON

INCREASED INFLATION AND THE

RISE OF PAPER CURRENCY, THE

FLOODING OF THE MARKET WITH

PAPER CURRENCIES.

THE NEXT ONE TO WATCH IS THE

JAPANESE YEN.

THEY ARE IN -- THEY'VE GOT,

I READ, 230% OF THEIR G.D.P.

IN DEBT.

230%.

THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD.

AND THEY'RE ALL GETTING

OLDER.

THE JAPANESE ARE VERY OLD.

THEY'RE NOT REPLACING THEIR

WORKFORCE.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO START

COLLAPSING THE YEN, SO --

Terry: YOU HEARD IT

HERE, AND YOU'LL KEEP US

POSTED, YES?

Pat: WELL, I'M TRYING

TO GAIN A FEW COINS FROM

THAT TRADE.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: WE WILL LISTEN.

Pat: WATTS NEXT?

Terry: UP NEXT, A

NATION TORN APART BY WAR

TRIES TO MEND ITS WOUNDS.

I SEE A FUTURE GENERATION

WHO MIGHT, JUST MIGHT HAVE A

DIFFERENT FUTURE.

AND IN BUILDING THEM, WE

BUILD A NATION.

Terry: MEET THE ONE

WOMAN WHO IS TRYING TO HEAL

HER COUNTRY.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELCOME BACK,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

TODAY IS MONDAY.

THIS IS THE "THE 700 CLUB."

WE HAVE AN INCREDIBLE

TESTIMONY.

I'VE BEEN WARNING YOU ABOUT

THE DANGERS OF PORNOGRAPHY

TO YOUNGSTERS, AND WE'VE GOT

A CASE OF A LIFE THAT WAS

WRECKED BEYOND BELIEF WITH

PORN.

BUT WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT

LATER.

IN THE 1990s, ETHNIC AND

RELIGIOUS HATRED BOILED OVER

IN A NATION CALLED BOSNIA.

AND MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS

SLAUGHTERED EACH OTHER IN

THE STREETS.

AT LEAST 200,000 PEOPLE DIED

IN BOSNIA.

AND TWO DECADES LATER, THE

GHOSTS OF THAT WAR STILL

LINGER.

NOW ONE WOMAN IS ON A

MISSION TO HELP HEAL THE

WOUNDS OF THE PAST.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE STORY

FROM SARAJEVO.

Reporter: OVER 1400

DAYS THEY FOUGHT ON THE

STREETS OF SARAJEVO.

NEIGHBOR AGAINST NEIGHBOR,

LOVED ONE AGAINST LOVED

ONE.

WHAT CATHOLIC CROATS,

ORTHODOX SERBS AND MUSLIM

BOSIANS DID TO EACH OTHER IN

THE NAME OF ETHNICITY, IN

THE NAME OF RELIGION, WAS

SIMPLY AWFUL.

RAPE, ETHNIC CLEANSING,

GENOCIDE, COLD-BLOODED

MURDER, YOU NAME IT, IT

HAPPENED.

THE FIGHTING SPREAD FROM THE

CAPITAL AND SOON ENGULFED

THE COUNTRY.

*

Reporter: WHEN THE GUNS

FELL SILENT THREE YEARS

LATER, THE HORRORS OF WHAT

HAD HAPPENED SHOCKED THE

WORLD.

AND THE ESTIMATES ARE SOME

250,000 BOSIANS SLAUGHTERED

EACH OTHER ON THE STREETS OF

SARAJEVO.

TREBUNSKAYA, WE REMEMBER

THOSE CITIES AND THE EVENTS

THAT PLAYED OUT IN FRONT OF

OUR TELEVISION SCREENS.

NOW, 16 YEARS LATER, WITH

THOUSANDS MISSING, BOSNIA

REMAINS HAUNTED BY MEMORIES

OF WAR.

THE ETHNIC AND RELIGIOUS

DIVISIONS STILL LINGER.

AND NOW AFTER THE WAR, IT

IS MAINTAINED AND SAID.

AND IT COULD BE A FIELD.

IT COULD BE FERTILE SOIL FOR

ANOTHER WAR.

Reporter: VANIA BULE

DOESN'T WANT TO SEE WAR

HAPPENING AGAIN.

WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE

SOMETHING DIFFERENT, LEAVE

SOMETHING DIFFERENT AS A

HERITAGE FOR OUR CHILDREN.

Reporter: SO FOR THE

LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, SHE

HAS TURNED THIS PEOPLE

TUCKED IN THE MOUNTAINS INTO

A PLACE OF RECONCILIATION.

FOR FOUR WEEKS IN THE

SUMMER, SHE INVITES CROATS,

SERBS, AND MUSLIMS, TO A

CAMP LIKE NO OTHER.

SO MANY KIDS, YOUNG

PEOPLE, AND EVEN OLDER

PEOPLE WHO COME, THEY ARE SO

AMAZED BY WH WHAT THEY

SEE.

BECAUSE THEY DON'T SEE IT

OUTSIDE THIS PLACE.

Reporter: WHAT THEY SEE

AND EXPERIENCE IS A MESSAGE

OF HOPE AND LOVE.

AND THEY ARE DRAWN TO

IT.

THEY ARE DRAWN TO THE

UNITY.

THEY ARE DRAWN TO THE PLACE

WHERE THERE IS NO PRESSURE

OF ETHNICITY.

THAT THEY CAN LIVE A LIFE IN

COMMUNITY, IN FELLOWSHIP, IN

LOVE, AND EXPERIENCE ONE

ANOTHER.

Reporter: VANIA BULE IS

AN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN.

SHE BELIEVES CHRIST IS THE

ANSWER FOR BOSNIA.

YOUR KINGDOM COME AND

YOUR WILL WILL BE DONE IN

THIS PLACE.

NOT JUST FOR ETERNITY, BUT

WE NEED JESUS TO CHANGE OUR

REALITY.

Reporter: VANIA IS FROM

CROATIA.

SHE EARNED A MASTER OF

DIVINITY FROM REGENT

UNIVERSITY IN VIRGINIA.

WHEN I CAME TO REGENT, I

CAME WITH A DEEP CONVICTION

AND A CALLING TO COME BACK

TO MY COUNTRY.

TO GET EVERYTHING I NEEDED

TO DO AND HAVE AND COME

BACK.

Reporter: NOW SHE RUNS

EMIK BARAKA THAT HELPS RUN

THE SUMMER OUC OUTREACH

PROGRAMS.

IT IS HEBREW, MEAN THE

VALLEY OF BLESSING.

TO HAVE THESE PEOPLE

COME.

YOU BLESS THEM AND IMPACT TO

THEM, AND THEN THEY GO HOME

TO THE NORTH, TO THE WEST,

TO THE EAST, AND TO THE

SOUTH.

AND THEY DRINK WHAT THEY

RECEIVE HERE.

IN BUILDING THEM, WE BUILD A

NATION.

WHEN I LEAVE HERE, I CAN

TELL OTHERS IN MY SCHOOL IT

IS POSSIBLE TO LIVE

TOGETHER.

I ATTENDED THIS CAMP FOR

THE FIRST TIME NINE YEARS

AGO, AND IT CHANGED MY

LIFE.

I SAW HOW JESUS CHRIST CAN

TRANSFORM YOUR ATTITUDE

TOWARDS OTHERS.

Reporter: YOU SEE,

SHARING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS

CHRIST HERE IN BOSNIA IS NOT

EASY.

THIS IS, AFTER ALL, A LAND

DOMINATED BY THE CATHOLICS,

ORTHODOX, AND MUSLIMS.

AND THE EVANGELICAL CHURCH,

WELL, THEY NUMBER.

LESS THAN 700 IN THE ENTIRE

COUNTRY.

IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

ALL OF THE LEADERS TO COME

TOGETHER IN FELLOWSHIP, AND

ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER.

WE PRAY FOR REVIVAL.

WE PRAY FOR EACH OTHER.

IT IS A TIME TO RECHARGE AND

BE REFRESHED BY GOD.

Reporter: ORGANIZING

THE CAMP IS NOT WITHOUT ITS

SHARE OF CHALLENGES.

THERE IS NO HOT WATER, NO

TOILET.

THERE ARE NO BUILDINGS ON

THE PROPERTY, EXCEPT FOR

THIS BOMBED OUT SHELL OF A

STRUCTURE THAT SERVES AS A

KITCHEN TO FEED HUNDREDS.

EVERY YEAR, FIXING THAT

BOMBED-OUT KITCHEN, TRYING

TO FIX IT SO IT IS SOMEWHAT

USABLE.

Reporter: SHE HAS A

DREAM: TO ONE DAY BUILD A

REAL KITCHEN AND NEW

DORMITORIES, SO THEY CAN

HOLD ADDITIONAL CAMPS

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

FOR NOW, THOUGH, SHE

CONTINUES TO PRAY THAT THIS

VALLEY CAN BE A BLESSING TO

THE NATION.

WHEN I SEE THIS PLACE,

WHEN I SEE THE CHILDREN THAT

I SEE DIVIDED IN THE CITIES

OF BOSNIA, WHEN I COME TO

THIS PLACE AN AND WHEN I

SEE THEM PLAYING THE SAIMS

SAME GAMES, SITTING NEXT TO

EACH OTHER, WHEN I SEE THEM

WORSHIPPING THE SAME GOD,

THEN I DON'T SEE ETHNIC

GROUPS.

I SEE PEOPLE OF BOSNIA AND

HERZEGOVINA.

I SEE A FUTURE GENERATION

WHO MIGHT, JUST MIGHT HAVE A

DIFFERENT FUTURE.

Reporter: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, SARAJEVO,

BOSNIA.

Pat: IT'S A BEAUTIFUL

PEACE, GEORGE.

POETIC, MAGNIFICENT.

THAT YOUNG LADY IS A

GRADUATE OF REGENT.

SHE HAS A DREAM AND A VISION

TO BRING RECONCILIATION TO

THE PEOPLE.

Terry: IT IS SUCH A

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.

Pat: I HAVE NOT BEEN ON

THE AIDRIATIC COAST.

Terry: IT IS

BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: TO THINK OF ALL OF

THE KILLING AND HATRED THAT

IS OVER THERE -- BUT,

ANYHOW, BLESS HER.

LET'S HOPE SHE WILL

PROSPER.

Terry: FANS OF THE

MOVIE KNOW THAT RUDY

ACHIEVED HIS DREAMS AND

PLAYED FOOTBALL FOR THE

IRISH.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO RUDY

AFTER THAT?

WELL, HE IS HERE TO TELL

US.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: EVEN IF YOU'RE

THE LEAST ATHLETIC PERSON ON

THE PLANET, YOU'VE PROBABLY

ONLY PLAYED 27 FEWER SECONDS

OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL THAN

DANIEL RITIKER.

WHILE THOSE 27 SECONDS DO

NOT SEEM LIKE MUCH, IT IS

WHAT DEFINES RUDY'S LIFE AND

SERVES AS AN INSPIRATION TO

LITERALLY MILLIONS OF

OTHERS.

Reporter: THE

BLOCKBUSTER FILM, "RUDY" HAS

INSPIRED MILLIONS.

IT IS THE REAL LIFE STORY OF

RUDY RUDIKER, A LOWER MIDDLE

CLASS KID WITH A LEARNING

DISABILITY, WHO GOT ACCEPTED

TO NOTREDAM AND THEN MADE

THE FOOTBALL TEAM.

IT WAS HIS SENIOR YEAR, IN

HIS FINAL HOME GAME WITH THE

FIGHTING IRISH.

ARE YOU READY, CHAMP?

I'VE BEEN READY FOR THIS

MY WHOLE LIFE.

Reporter: WITH ONLY 27

SECONDS LEFT, RUDY WALKED ON

TO THE FIELD.

[APPLAUSE AND CHEERS]

Reporter: THOSE 27

SECONDS BECAME HIS LIFE'S

MESSAGE, WHICH HE SHARES IN

HIS BOOK, "RUDY, MY STORY."

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," THE REAL

RUDY.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

IT'S GREAT TO BE HERE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: YOU SAID THEY

HAD ONLY SIX MINUTES TO

FILM --

TO FILM THE FINAL SCENE.

IN FRONT OF 60,000 PEOPLE.

AND ALL OF THE PREPARATION

IT TOOK TO DO THOSE SIX

MINUTES IS UNBELIEVABLE.

Terry: AND IT

HAPPENED?

AND IT HAPPENED.

THERE IS A STORY BEHIND THE

STORY: ALL OF THE

COMMUNICATION GEAR WENT DOWN

BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY WENT ON

TO THE FIELD.

SO THEY WENT OUT THERE AND

STARTED SHOOTING, AND THEY

CAUGHT THE MAGIC.

THEY WERE ALL WORRIED THEY

WEREN'T GOING TO CATCH THE

MAGIC IN THE FINAL MOMENT.

IF YOU WATCH THE END OF THE

MOVIE, WHEN THE KIDS PICK UP

SEAN MADISON, THEY TOUCHDOWN

AND THAT'S THE WHOLE STORY.

Terry: IT IS AN AMAZING

STORY.

LET'S BACK UP A LITTLE BIT.

YOU THOUGHT OF NOTREDAM AS

SORT OF THIS FAR-OFF DREAM,

ALMOST LIKE HEAVEN ITSELF.

WHAT MADE YOU SO PASSIONATE

ABOUT GOING THERE?

IT IS AN UNDERDOG STORY,

I THINK.

NOTREDAM CONNECTED TO THE

REAL POWER.

WE GREW UP AS A REAL

STRUCTURED CATHOLIC.

YOU GO TO NOTRE-DAME AND

YOU'RE GOING TO HEAVEN.

WE KNOW THAT'S NOT TRUE.

IT BECAME A WORTHWHILE DREAM

ONCE YOU UNDERSTOOD WHAT

FOLLOWED.

WHEN YOFIRST YOU FLIRT WITH

GOD AND YOU FLIRT WITH YOUR

FAITH.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WHEN

SOMETHING HAPPENS THAT IS

BAD, THAT'S WHEN YOU REACH

FOR YOUR FAITH.

AND YOU REALIZE LIFE IS

SHORT.

AND IT'S THE REAL DEAL, YOUR

FAITH, AND NOT ALL OF THESE

THINGS ARE IMPORTANT.

Terry: AND, RUDY, THAT

HAPPENED AS YOU WATCH THIS

MOVIE.

IS THAT REALLY TRUE TO LIFE,

THE WAY IT WAS PORTRAYED IN

THE MOVIE?

THAT'S WHY I WROTE THE

BOOK, "RUDY, MY STORY,"

BECAUSE THE STORY IS SO LONG

AND COMPLICATED.

AND WE COULDN'T SHOW THE

NAVY.

BECAUSE THE NAVY PLAYED AN

IMPORTANT PART.

IT WAS HERE IN NORFOLK, WHEN

THEY DECOMMISSIONED

GUANTANAMO BAY.

WHEN YOU GOT OUT OF

BOOTCAMP, YOU BECAME A REAL

MAN AND YOU HAD CONFIDENCE

IN YOURSELF.

WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY

FOCUSED ON THE LITTLE THINGS

THAT YOU CAN DO, NOT THE

THINGS YOU COULDN'T.

THAT WAS A BIG DIFFERENCE.

SCHOOL, THEY ALWAYS FOCUSED

ON WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO.

NOW IT FLIP-FLOPS AND IT IS

ON WHAT YOU CAN CAN DO.

SO THE CONFIDENCE COMES AND

THE DREAMS COME AND

EVERYTHING IS IN ORDER.

Terry: BUT YOUR

TENACITY CAME IN THE FACE OF

THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT WHERE

THEY KEPT TELLING YOU WHAT

YOU COULDN'T DO.

HOW DO YO -- DID YOU KEEP

ON KEEPING ON WITH THAT?

YOU WATCH ALL OF THE

GREAT STORIES.

YOU SEE HOW YOU BELIEVE IN

SOMETHING.

YOU DON'T TURN BACK.

YOU FIGHT NOT TO GO BACK.

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GO BACK

TO WHERE YOU WERE.

AND THAT'S WHAT I FOUGHT

FOR.

NOT THAT IT WAS A BAD LIFE,

BUT I WANTED TO HAVE MORE

AND MY LIFE.

AND THE DREAMS ARE BIG.

AND YOU'VE GOT TO DREAM

BIG.

AND THEY'RE REAL IF YOU

UNDERSTOOD THAT THE LITTLE

STEPS ARE IMPORTANT AND THE

LITTLE THINGS ARE

IMPORTANT.

Terry: BUT THAT VOICE

THAT KEPT TELLING YOU IT WAS

WORTH HANGING ON TO YOU WAS

INSIDE OF YOU.

PEOPLE AROUND YOU SAID YOU

WERE CRAZY.

THEY SAID YOU COULDN'T DO

IT.

THEY SAID YOU DIDN'T HAVE

WHAT IT TOOK.

EVEN PEOPLE IN YOUR

FAMILY --

THEY WERE MORE SUPPORTIVE

AND PROTECTIVE, THE FAMILY.

THERE WERE JUST A COUPLE OF

ANTAGONISTS.

SO YOU'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND

BOTH SIDES.

YOU'VE GOT TO BALANCE THAT.

SO IN ORDER TO HELP YOUR

FAMILY, YOU'VE GOT TO STEP

OUT OF THE BOX AND SHOW

THEM, HEY, DON'T PAY

ATTENTION TO THAT.

MOVE FORWARD.

Terry: YOU SPENT A LOT

OF TIME AT NOTREDAM AND THE

GROTTO, PRAYING AND LIGHTING

CANDLES.

WHAT DID YOU ASK GOD FOR?

JUST CLEANSING OF GOOFY

THOUGHTS.

EVERY NOW AND THEN YOU THINK

YOU'RE MOVING FORWARD AND

YOU GET THIS GOOFY THOUGHT

THAT YOU CAN'T DO IT.

YOU'VE GOT TO ELIMINATE

THOSE THOUGHTS.

THAT'S WHEN THE SPIRITUAL

CLEANSING COMES FROM.

WHEN I STEPPED ON THAT

CAMPUS, IT WAS ABOUT

FOOTBALL.

IT BECAME ABOUT LIVING RIGHT

AND GRATITUDE AND PRECIOUS

AND LOVE.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

Terry: YOU SPENT A LOT

OF TIME JUST BEING HAPPY YOU

WERE AT NOTREDAM, BUT THEN

THE THING OF THE FOOTBALL

WAS LIKE ANOTHER WHOLE

ELEMENT.

DID YOU THINK YOU WERE GOING

TO GET IN THAT FINAL GAME?

WELL, WE ALWAYS HAVE THAT

WANT TO, BUT THERE WAS A LOT

OF DOUBT.

BUT HERE IS THE KEY: BECAUSE

THINGS AREN'T GOING TO GO

YOUR WAY, YOU ARE GOING TO

GET KNOCKED DOWN, AND YOU

NEED TO GET UP AND KEEP

MOVING FORWARD.

AND YOU NEED PEOPLE AROUND

YOU TO REMIND YOU OF THAT.

I CALL THEM CONNECTORS.

I HAD THE JANITOR AT

NOTREDAM.

HE WAS ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN MY

LIFE.

HE DIDN'T SAY MUCH.

THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE

THAT HELPED ME.

WE DID THAT COMPOSITE IN THE

MOVIE TO MAKE THE JANITOR

REPRESENT THOSE TYPE OF

PEOPLE.

Terry: THERE WERE SO

MANY PEOPLE INSPIRED BY THE

MOVIE.

WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO

KNOW?

I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW

YOU'RE GOING TO HIT THE

WALL.

AND YOU NEED TO GET UP.

AND YOU NEED TO MOVE

FORWARD.

AND DON'T LIVE IN THE PAST

AND PLEASE DON'T LIVE IN

WHAT JUST HAPPENED.

LIVE IN THE PRESENT AND SAY

THIS IS WHAT I LEARNED, AND

THE LESSONS YOU'RE GOING TO

LEARN AND MOVE ON.

GOD IS AN UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE.

ONCE YOU KNOW THAT, YOU CAN

CAN MAKE UP FOR THE MISTAKES

WE MAKE OR THE MAD JUDGMENTS

WE MAKE.

AND THAT'S WHERE IT IS

WONDERFUL.

Terry: IN A WAY, ONCE

YOU KNOW THAT, IT DOESN'T

MATTER IF YOU GET IN THE

LAST GAME OR NOT?

IT DIDN'T MATTER.

BUT PREPARATION WAS THE

KEY.

IF I DIDN'T PREPARE FOR THAT

MOMENT -- I WAS HAPPY JUST

GOING OUT TO THE TEAM.

AND THEN ALL OF THE GIFTS

ARE GIVEN TO YOU, AND THAT'S

WHEN YOU MOVE FORWARD.

LIKE NOTREDAM, WHEN I THINK

I COULDN'T EVER GO THERE.

WHEN MY FRIEND DIED, I PUT

MY ARMS UP AND SAID, LORD,

I'M YOURS, AND THAT'S WHEN

ALL OF THE OPPORTUNITIES

HAPPENED AND I GAVE MYSELF

UP.

HERE IS THE KEY: THE COURAGE

IT TAKES FROM THE BELIEF.

DON'T ASK PERMISSION TO GO.

JUST GO.

THESE LITTLE DOORS, IF

YOU'RE OPEN TO THEM, YOU'RE

RECOGNIZE THEM AND EMBRACE

THEM.

ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WANT TO

HELP YOU SUCCEED.

THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO

LOSE.

THEY WANT YOU TO WIN.

THEY'RE ALWAYS EMBRACING

YOUR SPIRIT.

THAT'S WHY YOU HAVE TO HAVE

A GOOD ATTITUDE.

Pat: OVER AND OVER

AGAIN ON THIS PROGRAM, I'VE

WARNED YOU ABOUT THE

INCREDIBLE, EXPLOSIVE

EFFECTS OF JUST ONE VIEW OF

PORNOGRAPHY UPON THE MIND OF

A YOUNG BOY.

AND FROM THE FIRST MOMENT HE

LAID EYES ON IT, JONATHAN

DAUGHTERY WAS HOOKED, EVEN

BEFORE HE KNEW WHAT SEX

WAS.

HE KNEW HE WANTED IT.

AND OVER THE YEARS, JONATHAN

PURSUED HIS LUSTS, SANK

FURTHER INTO THEM.

EVEN AS THE REST OF HIS

WORLD WAS CRUMBLING AROUND

HIM.

Reporter: IT WAS A HOT,

SUMMER DAY, AND 12-YEAR-OLD

JONATHAN DAUGHTERY WAS

PLAYING OUTSIDE WITH A

FRIEND.

THE BOY WANTED TO SHOW HIM A

SECRET.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND,

IN MY 12-YEAR-OLD MIND, I

WAS THINKING WE'RE GOING TO

SEE SOMETHING DEAD.

BUT WHEN WE GOT OUT IN HIS

FIELD, THERE WAS THIS TREE

STUMP.

HE REACHED HIS ARM DOWN INTO

THIS HALLOWED OUT PORTION.

I'M STILL THINKING, HE IS

GRABBING THE RACCOON OR

WHATEVER, AND HE PULLED OUT

THIS ROLLED UP MAGAZINE AND

HE OPENED IT UP.

AND EVERYTHING CHANGED.

IT WAS PORN.

I HAD NEVER SEEN

PORNOGRAPHY.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHY THERE WERE

PICTURES OF NAKED PEOPLE AND

WHAT THEY WERE DOING.

AND I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING

ABOUT IT.

Reporter: PORNOGRAPHY

BECAME JONATHAN'S SECRET,

TOO.

AT FIRST HE WAS CONFUSED BY

WHAT HE FELT.

BUT HIS AWAKENED APPETITE

WANTED TO BE SATISFIED.

IT WAS ALMOST IMMEDIATE I

STARTED SEARCHING FOR MOR

MATERIAL.

JUST SHEAR CURIOSITY.

I STILL DIDN'T KNOW WHAT SEX

WAS.

I JUST KNEW THERE WAS

SOMETHING THAT REACTED IN MY

WHEN I INITIALLY SAW THAT

PORN.

Reporter: HE

IMMEDIATELY SEARCHED FOR

MAGAZINES AND IMAGES TO FEED

HIS CRAVING.

I WAS DEVELOPING THIS

SECRET ADDICTION.

IT WAS LEARNING TO HAVE A

FANTASY LIFE THAT PLACED ME

IN THE CENTER AND HAVE

EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE

RESOLVE AROUND ME.

ALL OF THESE WOMEN ARE DOING

WHATEVER I WANTED THEM TO

DO.

Reporter: DESPITE

FUELING HIS FANTASIES

THROUGH PORN AND PROM

PROMISCUITY.

HE SUFFERED WITH SHAME AND

SELF-WORTH.

ESPECIALLY A KID LIKE ME

WHO GREW UP IN IN THE

CHURCH.

IT IS LIKE MY LUST WOULD

TAKE MY ON A DETOUR.

IF YOU FAILED FOR YEARS AND

YEARS AND YEARS IN MANAGING

YOUR SEXUALITY, IT IS NOT A

LONG TRIP TO THINK YOU'RE A

DESPICABLE, HORRIBLE PERSON,

AND YOU HAVE NO VALUE.

Reporter: JONATHAN MET

ELAINE WHILE ATTENDING

COLLEGE.

THEY BEGAN DATING AND

EVENTUALLY MARRIED.

I SAW THIS AUTHENTIC

PERSON.

I WANTED MORE OF HER IN MY

LIFE.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS A GOOD

THING.

TO HAVE SOMEONE WITH THAT

MUCH FAITH.

MARRIAGE CURED ME FOR ABOUT

FIVE WEEKS.

BUT IT REALLY WASN'T UNTIL I

WAS MARRIED AND HAD THIS

OTHER PERSON WHO SORT OF

ACTED AS A MIRROR TO ME THAT

I SAW JUST THE DEPTH TO

WHICH I WAS REALLY TRAPPED

IN THIS.

Reporter: ON-LINE PORNO

LONGER SATISFIED JONATHAN.

HE WANTED MORE.

HE DISCOVERED CYBER-SEX AND

SPENT HIS LATE NIGHT IN

CHATROOMS WERE WOMEN WHO

GAME ON-LINE SEXUAL

PARTNERS.

I SAW HIM WITHDRAW.

HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME ON

THE COMPUTER.

ANY TIME WE WERE TOGETHER,

HE WOULD BE SAYING THINGS

LIKE, HE MARRIED THE WRONG

PERSON, AND HURTFUL THINGS

LIKE THAT.

I WOULD SPEND MY TIME

THINKING ABOUT, WAS I SO BAD

TO LIVE WITH.

I STARTED TO CATCH HIM IN

LIES.

I DID FIND WEBSITES, AND I

DID FIND GIRLS' PHONE

NUMBERS, BUT I WAS

UNPREPARED FOR THE TRUTH.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW FURIOUS

THINGS WERE, EVEN THOUGH RED

FLAGS WERE BLOWING.

ANY HAD GONE BEYOND

PORNOGRAPHY.

I STARTED TO HAVE AFFAIRS I

WOULD SET UP ON LINE.

ONE DAY I WAS IN A CHATROOM,

AND A WOMAN PUT TWO LITTLE

WORDS ON THE SCREEN: "WANT

TO ME?"

THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME IN

MY MARRIAGE I WAS CHALLENGED

TO CROSS THE LINE, OUT OF

THE REALM OF FANTASY, INTO

THE REALM OF REALLY ACTING

OUT.

I SAID YES AND WENT AND HAD

SEX WITH THE WOMAN.

MY DOWNWARD SPIRAL WAS FAST

AND FURIOUS.

Reporter: AND SO WAS

HIS GUILT.

HE CONFESSED TO ELAINE WHAT

HE HAD DONE.

I TOLD HER EVERYTHING.

I TOLD HER ABOUT THE

PROSTITUTES, I TOLD HER

ABOUT THE INTERNET, ALL OF

THOSE KINDS OF THINGS.

I WAS JUST LIKE A PEDAL

ON THE FLOOR.

I THOUGHT THE SUN WOULD NOT

COME UP.

I THOUGHT IT I WOULD DIE

BECAUSE IT HURT SO FAST.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

JONATHAN CONFESSED

EVERYTHING TO ELAINE, HE WAS

NOT READY TO GIVE UP HIS

PROFESSION.

IN LESS THAN A WEEK, I

WAS IN BED WITH ANOTHER

WOMAN.

I KNEW WHERE HE HAD GONE

SO I PACKED UP MY BAGS AND

LEFT.

I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER EVER

WANTED TO TALK TO HIM

AGAIN.

I NEVER WANTED TO SEE HIM

AGAIN.

I DROVE TO MY PARENTS AND I

CRIED THE WHOLE WAY.

I JUST FELT VERY BROKEN.

WHEN I WALKED IN AND SHUT

THE DOOR, THE ONLY WAY I

COULD DESCRIBE IT WAS

DEAFENING SILENCE.

THAT WAS ACTUALLY THE

CATALYST THAT GOD USED SHAKE

ME ENOUGH TO KIND OF BRING

ME TO MY SENSES TO WHERE I

STARTED REALIZING I HAVE

DESTROYED MY LIFE AND THE

LIFE OF ANOTHER PERSON.

IF I DON'T GET HELP NOW, I

WILL END UP TAKING MY LIFE.

I JUST STARTED SOBBING.

I FELT AS IF JESUS HIMSELF

CAME RIGHT UP NEXT TO ME ON

THE FLOOR AND JUST PUT HIS

ARM AROUND ME AND SAID, YOU

KNOW WHAT?

I KNOW.

I KNOW.

I CARE ABOUT YOU.

I KNEW THIS WAS COMING.

BUT THIS IS RIGHT WHERE I

WANT YOU TO BE.

AND IT WAS LIKE THE FIRST

MOMENT IN MY LIFE WHERE IT

FELT LIKE, WOW, THAT'S WHAT

GRACE IS.

THAT'S THE GOD WHO LOVES

ME.

THAT'S THE GOD WHO KNOWS

EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN IN MY LIFE BEFORE IT

HAPPENS AND STILL SAYS, I'M

GOING TO WALK WITH YOU EVERY

STEP OF THE WAY.

Reporter: JONATHAN

SOUGHT ELAINE'S

FORGIVENESS.

HE WENT INTO COUNSELLING AND

JOINED ACCOUNTABILITY

GROUPS.

ELAINE SAW HONESTY IN

JONATHAN'S CHANGE.

GOD STARTED TO WORK ON MY

RELATIONSHIP.

HE SAID, REMEMBER ME.

LOOK HOW MUCH YOU'VE BEEN

UNFAITHFUL TO ME AND I'VE

FORGIVEN YOU.

Reporter: ELAINE

FORGAVE JONATHAN.

GOD DOESN'T GIVE UP ON A

MARRIAGE.

WHEN WE FIRST GOT TOGETHER,

I CAUGHT HIM BEING RIGHT, I

CAUGHT HIM BEING PURE.

I CAUGHT HIM DOING THE RIGHT

THING.

THAT WENT A LONG WAY FOR

BUILDING TRUST.

I BELIEVE GOD UNLEASHES

HIS POWER WITH SOMEONE

STRUGGLING WITH SEXUAL

PROBLEMS.

YOU HAVE TRULY SHOWN ME

FORGIVENESS.

YOU HAVE NEVER, EVER BROUGHT

UP MY PAST SINCE WE'VE

GOTTEN BACK TOGETHER.

I THINK THAT IS A TESTAMENT

OF YOUR FAITH AND GOD'S

GRACE IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: JONATHAN AND

ELAINE RENEWED THEIR VOWS IN

FRONT OF FAMILY.

THEY BECAME PARENTS TO THREE

CHILDREN.

AND THE DAUGHTERYS NOW HAVE

A MINISTRY HELPING MEN

OVERCOME SEXUAL ADDICTION.

IT IS GOD'S STORY OF

REDEMPTION.

AND SEE THAT HE WANTS TO

TAKE OUR BROKENNESS, MY

BROKENNESS, AND WE CAN HELP

OTHERS.

JUST HAVING MY WIFE BACK IN

MY LIFE IS WAY BEYOND ANY

EXPECTATION I COULD EVER

HAVE.

HAVE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, YOU AND

I ARE PART OF A FALLEN

RACE.

WE ARE CONCEIVED IN SIN, THE

BIBLE SAYS.

AND THE VERY BEGINNING LIFE

THERE IS SIN.

ALL OF US, MALE, FEMALE,

EVERYONE.

AND IT TAKES A RADICAL

TRANSFORMATION TO CHANGE

US.

THE PROBLEM WITH SOME ARE

MORE WEAK THAN OTHERS.

SOME ARE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE

THAN OTHERS.

AND WHAT'S INSIDE OF US IS

MORE SUBJECT TO BEING

MANIPULATED BY FORCES

OUTSIDE OF US.

THE WORLD, THE FLESH, AND

THE DEVIL.

SO WE'RE IN A CULTURE RIGHT

NOW THAT IS SATURATED WITH

SEX.

SATURATED WITH SEX.

AND IT IS SO AVAILABLE.

IT USED TO BE THAT

SOMEBODY -- IN ORDER TO

ENGAGE IN THAT KIND OF

CONDUCT LIKE JONATHAN, THEY

HAD TO GO TO SOME PEEP SHOW

OR SOME BURLESQUE THOUSANDS,

BUT RIGHT NOW ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS SIT IN YOUR OFFICE

AND PUNCH A KEY, AND THERE

IT ALL IS.

IN MORE GRAPHIC DETAILS THAN

ANYBODY CAN CONCEIVE OF.

AND IT'S SO EASY BECAUSE WE

ARE SINNERS.

AND, YOU SEE, GOD KNOWS

WE'RE SINNERS AND HE KNOWS

WHAT WE'RE MADE OUT OF.

HE KNOWS WE ARE WEAK, AND HE

KNOWS WE ARE FLESH.

THE THING ABOUT JONATHAN IS

LIKE JESUS SAT BESIDE HIM

AND PUT HIS ARM AROUND HIM

AND SAID I LOVE YOU.

AND OUT OF THAT HAS COME A

MAN WHO IS GOING TO SERVE

GOD AND SERVE OTHERS.

NOW, WHAT IS YOUR

ADDICTION?

IS IT SEX?

IS IT THE PORNOGRAPHY THING

THAT HAS HOOKED YOU?

DO YOU WANT TO GET FREE?

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO GET

FREE?

I WAS PRAYING WITH AN

ALCOHOLIC ONCE.

AND HE CALLED ME PATTY,

BECAUSE HE IS IRISH.

I SAID, OKAY, LET'S PRAY.

AND I SAID JESUS.

AND HE SAID JESUS.

AND I SAID I FORSAKE THIS

JESUS.

AND I SAID I'LL NEVER TOUCH

A DROP OF LIQUOR AS LONG AS

I LIVE.

AND HE STOPPED AND HE SAID,

PATTY, I DON'T WANT TO GO

THAT FAR.

WELL, DO YOU WANT TO GO THAT

FAR?

YOU'VE GOT TO SAY NO.

AND YOU'VE GOT TO SAY I'M

GOING TO BE TRUE TO MY

WIFE.

I'M GOING TO BE TRUE TO MY

HUSBAND.

AND I'M GOING TO EXCEPT THE

FORGIVENESS THAT GOD GIVES

ME.

AND RIGHT NOW I'M GOING TO

PRAY WITH YOU.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO PRAY

WITH ME.

LET THE PEACE WASH OVER YOU

AND CLEANSE YOU.

RECEIVE HIS LOVE RIGHT NOW.

PRAY THESE WORDS WITH ME.

JESUS -- PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW I'M A

SINNER, YOU KNOW HOW WEAK I

AM.

YOU KNOW ALL OF MY

PROBLEMS.

SO I BRING THEM TO YOU.

AND I COME TO YOU, LORD, AND

I SAY, PLEASE CLEANSE ME AND

FORGIVE ME.

TAKE AWAY THE TENDENCIES

THAT HAVE BEEN RUINING MY

LIFE.

I TURN AWAY FROM THEM.

I REBUKE A SPIRIT OF LUSTER

THAT HAS BOUND ME.

I COMMAND IT TO LEAVE ME.

AND, JESUS, I TAKE YOUR

FORGIVENESS.

FILL ME WITH YOURSELF, LORD,

AND DRIVE OUT EVERYTHING

WHICH IS NOT OF GOD.

IN JESUS' NAME, FROM THIS

MOMENT ON, I'M YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

I'VE GOT A LITTLE THING

THAT'S CALLED "TRAPPED IN

TEMPTATION."

IT WILL BE A GOOD HELP FOR

YOU.

IT WILL GIVE YOU NOT ONLY

SOME SCRIPTURES TO GET OUT

OF IT, BUT IT WILL TELL YOU

ABOUT SOME PRACTICAL

SOLUTIONS.

"TRAPPED I IN TEMPTATION."

IF YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE WHO IS TRAPPED,

PLEASE GO TO YOUR TELEPHONE

AND SAY I PRAYED WITH PAT

AND I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

CONFESS WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

1-800-759-0700.

PLEASE REMEMBER, GOD KNOWS

YOU, GOD LOVES YOU, GOD

FORGIVES YOU, AND GOD WANTS

TO REDEEM YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL TO

COME, WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS FROM OUR IN-BOX.

MICHAELS "MY WIFE DOESN'T

HAVE RESPECT FOR ME.

SHE INSULTS ME AND RECENTLY

SHE EVEN TRIED TO HIT ME.

I'M LOSING MY OWN'LL ANSWER THAT QUESTION

AND MORE WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: WE HAVE A FEW

MINUTES TO ANSWER SOME OF

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM MICHAEL WHO SAYS, MY

WIFE HAS BECOME A REAL

PROBLEM.

SHE HAS NO RESPECT FOR ME AS

THE HEAD OF THE HOUSE.

SHE INSULTS ME, AND SHE EVEN

WENT AS FAR AS STRETCHING

HER HAND TO BEAT ME.

I HAVE LOST MY

SELF-CONFIDENCE.

HER.

Terry: WELL, IN LIEU OF

THAT?

WITH THAT.

Terry: WHY WOULD SHE

NOT WANT TO TALK THROUGH

THEIR PROBLEMS.

Pat: SHE IS JUST

TOTALLY -- WELL, SHE'S

REBELLIOUS.

THE CHANCE ARE SHE WAS

REBELLIOUS WITH HER FATHER

AND MOTHER.

SHE IS A REBELLIOUS CHILD

AND SHE DOESN'T WANT TO

SUBMIT TO ANY AUTHORITY.

SHE PROBABLY HAD TEMPER

TANTRUMS WHEN SHE WAS A

KID.

YOU KNOW, THE LITTLE

GIRL, "I HATE YOU, I HATE

YOU," WELL, THAT'S THE SAME

KIND OF THING.

SHE'S TRANSFERRED THE FATHER

NOW.

SHE MIGHT -- I HATE TO SAY

EVERYTHING HAS GOT TO BE

SOME PSYCHOLOGICAL

COUNSELLING --

Terry: WELL, NO, BUT I

THINK YOU NEED A THIRD PARTY

HERE.

Pat: DEFINITELY.

BUT THAT'S THE PROBLEM, SHE

DOES NOT UNDERSTAND

AUTHORITY.

WHEN SHE WAS GROWING UP,

NOBODY MADE HER BEHAVE.

AND NOW YOU'VE GOT A

13-YEAR-OLD IN A 30-YEAR-OLD

WOMAN'S BODY.

AND SHE IS ACTING LIKE A

CHILD.

NOW, WHAT DO YOU DO WITH

THAT?

OKAY?

THIS IS ROBIN WHO SAYS, "I

HAVE FORGIVEN MY RECENT

EX-HUSBAND BUT STILL LOVE

HIM VERY MUCH.

HE RECENTLY TOLD ME HE MADE

THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF HIS

LIFE BY DIVORCING ME.

HE SERVED IN AFGHANISTAN AND

BLAMES A LOT OF WHY WE

DIVORCED ON THE THINGS HE

SAW WHILE DEPLOYED.

IT MADE HIM A DIFFE A

DIFFERENT MAN.

HE WAS ONCE A GOD-LOVING MAN

BUT HE LOST HIS WAY WITH THE

LORD.

I DON'T KNOW WHO TO LISTEN

TO."

Pat: LISTEN TO GOD AND

GET BACK WITH THE MAN.

HE WANTS TO LOVE YOU, AND

YOU WANT TO LOVE HIM.

THE FACT HE HAD A HIDEOUS

WAR AND HAS HAD ALL KINDS OF

PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS --

WORK THROUGH THEM.

IT IS LIKE HE WAS INJURED,

LIKE HE HAD HIS LEG BLOWN

OFF.

LOVE HIM AND WORK WITH HIM.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHAT THE

PARENTS SAY OR THE FAMILY

SAYS.

WHAT MATTERS IS YOU AND THAT

HUSBAND.

YOU EMBRACE HIM, YOU LOVE

HIM, AND YOU CARE FOR HIM

AND RECOGNIZE THE FACT HE IS

GOING TO HAVE PSYCHOLOGICAL

PROBLEMS AND HE CAN WORK

THROUGH IT.

Terry: ANNIE SAYS,

"PAT, HOW OFTEN DOES GOD

SPEAK TO YOU AND WHAT DOES

HIS VOICE SOUND LIKE?"

Pat: IT'S THE INNER

VOICE, AND SOMETIMES WHEN

YOU SPEND MORE AND MORE TIME

WITH THE LORD, HE SPEAKS TO

YOU MORE AND MORE.

BUT HE SPEAKS OUT OF THE

WORD.

HE SPEAKS OUT OF THE ADVICE

OF FRIENDS.

BUT IT IS THE STILL, SMALL

VOICE IN YOUR INNER BEING.

Terry: BUT IT IS ALWAYS

DIFFERENT THAN YOUR OWN

VOICE, ISN'T IT?

Pat: YES.

THE BIBLE SAYS, BY REASON

YOU BEGUN TO DISCERN GOOD

FROM EVIL.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, REMEMBER 9/11, AND

HEAR FROM A SURVIVOR WHO WAS

IN THE PENTAGON WHEN I WAS

HIT BY FLIGHT 77.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 1 JOHN "BELOVED, LET US LOVE ONE

ANOTHER FOR LOVE IS FROM

GOD."
