Reporter: A SOLDIER'S

BEST FRIEND.

HE NOT ONLY SAVED MY

LIFE, BUT WHO KNOWS HOW

MANY.

WE HAD TO GET HIM MEDIVACED

OUT THERE QUICK.

Reporter: AND HOW

THEY'RE HELPING OTHERS.

PLUS, NCAA WRESTLING CHAMP,

ANTHONY.

AND HIS UNLIKELY CLIMB TO

THE TOP.

I'M THE ONLY ATHLETE TO

EVER WIN, DESPITE MISSING A

LIMB.

*

( applause ).

Pat: WELCOME TO EDITION

OF "THE 700 CLUB."

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, TODAY

IS MONDAY.

PLAIN OLD MONDAY.

NO MONEY INVOLVED IN IT.

BUT TALK ABOUT MONEY, DEAR

ME, THEY'RE WASTING SO MUCH

MONEY ON TELEVISION.

THEY'RE SATURATING THE

AIRWAVES WITH EXPENSIVE

SPOTS THAT PEOPLE ARE TURNED

OFF.

IT LOOKED LIKE THE OBAMA

CAMPAIGN HIT $180 MILLION,

AND THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT A

BILLION DOLLARS ON THAT

RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN.

TERRY?

Terry: IT IS KIND OF

CRAZY, ISN'T IT?

THE ECONOMY THE WAY IT IS,

AND THEY'RE DOING THINGS

LIKE THAT.

MITT ROMNEY IS STAYING ON

THE OFFENSIVE, TOO.

HE IS KEEPING UP HIS ATTACKS

ON THE ECONOMY, AND TODAY HE

IS GOING AFTER THE PRESIDENT

ON FOREIGN POLICY.

EF "GREY'S ANATOMYEPHRAIM

GRAHAM HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: ROMNEY SAYS

IT IS TIME TO CHANGE COURSE

IN THE MIDDLE EAST, AND HE

IS CRITICIZING THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION'S HANDLING OF

THE TERRORIST ATTACKS LAST

MONTH.

HE SAYS IT CAN'T BE BLAMED

ON A VIDEO, AS THEY DID AT

FIRST.

IT SETS THE STAGE FOR

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE ON BOTH

DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN

POLICY.

MITT ROMNEY CONTINUES TO

RIDE HIGH ON MOMENTUM FROM

HIS FIRST PERFORMANCE.

YOU ALL HAVE A CHANCE TO

HEAR HIS ANSWERS OR

NON-ANSWERS.

NOW, OF COURSE, DAYS LATER,

WE'RE HEARING HIS EXCUSES.

AND NEXT JANUARY, WE'LL BE

WATCHING HIM LEAVE THE WHITE

HOUSE FOR THE LAST TIME.

Reporter: A POLL SHOWS

ROMNEY GETTING A DEBATE

BOUNCE, NOW LEADING

PRESIDENT OBAMA 49% TO 47%

AMONG LIKELY VOTERS.

AND A FORECASTING MODEL

OUTER OF THE UNIVERSITY OF

COLORADO, THAT HAS PREDICTED

EVERY ELECTION ACCURATELY

SINCE 1980 SAYS ROMNEY WILL

WIN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE.

MEANWHILE, PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS FUNDRAISING IN

CALIFORNIA.

IN SEPTEMBER, DEMOCRATS

RAISED $181 MILLION.

SHATTERING PREVIOUS

RECORDS..

AT A CELEBRITY FUNDRAISER,

HE SAID.

THEY PERFORMED

FLAWLESSLY, NIGHT AFTER

NIGHT.

I CAN'T ALWAYS SAY THE

SAME.

Reporter: THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FELL BELOW

8% FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE

JANUARY OF 2009, COMING IN

AT 7.8%.

A NUMBER THAT THE PRESIDENT

SAYS SHOWS PROGRESS.

President Obama: MORE

AMERICANS ENTERED THE

WORKFORCE, MORE PEOPLE ARE

GETTING JOBS.

Reporter: BUT MITT

ROMNEY SAYS THE RECOVERY

STILL ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH.

PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY

ARE HAVING A HARD TIME

FINDING A JOB.

PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY ARE

FINDING A HARD TIME MAKING

ENDS MEET EVEN IF THEY DO

HAVE A JOB.

Reporter: EVEN WITH

MORE FOREIGN POLICY TALK

COMING BEFORE THE ELECTION,

THE TOPIC ON MOST MINDS

BEFORE THE ELECTION WILL BE

JOBS AND UNEMPLOYMENT.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM CB, CBN

NEWS.

Pat: IT LOOKS LIKE

ROMNEY IS ROLLING ALONE.

THAT DEBATE HAS DISPELLED

THE MIASMA FROM ALL OF THE

COMPAIGNS PUTTING OUT.

BUT HE KEEPS STICKING WITH

THAT $5 TRILLION TAX CUT,

AND ROMNEY SAID I DIDN'T

PROPOSE SOME $5 TRILLION.

THEY FOUND A RESEARCH THAT

SAID OVER 10 YEARS, IT WILL

ADD UP TO $5 TRILLION.

AND ROMNEY DIDN'T SAY HE HAD

A $5 TRILLION TAX CUT.

ROMNEY SAYS THAT'S NOT MY

PLAN, AND THE CHICAGO SPIN

MEISTERS COME BACK AND SAY

HE IS LYING.

HE IS NOT LYING.

HE IS NOT FOLLOWING YOUR

PlayBook.

Terry: I THINK THE

REACTION IMMEDIATELY AFTER

THE DEBATE WAS REALITY.

EVERYBODY WAS FLUSTERED,

EVEN THOSE IN THE OBAMA

CAMPAIGN.

EVEN THOSE WHO WERE SPEAKING

AND SAYING SOMEHOW HE HAD

WON THE DEBATE.

THERE WAS JUST A HOLLOWNESS

TO IT.

THERE WAS TIME TO SPIN IT.

Pat: MAYBE IT IS THE

ALTITUDE IN DENVER.

MAYBE THE PRESIDENT WAS

SMOKING A LITTLE WEED.

Terry: I MISSED THAT

ONE.

Pat: YOU LOOK AT ALL

THOSE TWEETS -- BUT, ANYHOW,

THE NEXT ONE HE'LL BE A LOT

SHARPER ON IT.

BUT HIS MAIN THING IS THAT

THEY KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN,

BUT WHAT ABOUT LIBYA.

HE HAS A LOT OF EGG ON HIS

FACE ON THAT ONE.

Terry: AND WHAT ABOUT

ISRAEL?

Pat: AND WHAT ABOUT

ISRAEL.

IT WAS A CLEAR COVER UP ON

THE ATTACK THAT KILLED OUR

AMBASSADOR.

SOMETHING ELSE IS GOING ON.

THE CHURCHES SAY, WE'RE NOT

GOING TO STAND FOR IT.

WE'RE HAVING OUR FREEDOM

TAKEN AWAY.

I WANT EVERYBODY TO

UNDERSTAND THAT THE I.R.S.

IS NOT ACTING ON ITS OWN.

IT IS ACTING ON THE BASIS OF

A PIECE OF LEGISLATION THAT

WAS JAMMED THROUGH THE

CONGRESS BY PRESIDENT LYNDON

B. JOHNSON, WHICH LIMITS THE

ABILITY OF NON-PROFITS TO

SPEAK OUT IN AN ELECTION.

IN MY OPINION, IT IS UNCONS

TUTIONALTUTIONAL, AND IT

HASN'T BEEN CHALLENGED LIKE

IT SHOULD.

BUT THE PASTORS ARE SAYING

WE'RE GOING TO GO AND

CHALLENGE IT.

SO THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

WAS A TOPIC OF CONVERSATION

FROM AND UNUSUAL PLACE, AND

THAT'S THE PULPIT.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT ACROSS.

Lee: PASTORS TOOK PART

IN SOMETHING CALLED "PULPIT

FREEDOM SUNDAY," THEY FEEL

THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO SPEAK

FOR OR AGAINST THE

CANDIDATE.

ONE SUNDAY THEY WERE WILLING

TO TEST THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT'S RESOLVE TO STOP

THEM.

Reporter: BISHOP HARRY

JACKSON IS KNOWN FOR

SPEAKING HIS MIND.

ON SUNDAY, HE TOOK IT A STEP

FURTHER, DELIVERING A FIERY

CEREMONY ABOUT THE COUNTRY'S

STATE OF AFFAIRS.

SOME MAY RIGHT AMERICA.

THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE

GIVE YOU IN THESE LAST FEW

MINUTES IS FOR A REASON.

WHY I CANNOT SUPPORT BARACK

OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT.

Reporter: BISHOP

JACKSON USED AN OLD

TESTAMENT TEXT TO MAKE HIS

CASE.

DRAWING A PARALLEL TO KING

AHAB AND QUEEN JES SA

JEZEBELLE.

IN THE END, JACKSON SAYS

JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

PREVAILED, BUT ONLY AFTER

GOD'S PEOPLE SPOKE OUT.

DURING THE SERVICE, HE

ARGUED AGAINST RE-ELECTING

PRESIDENT BASED ON MAJOR

STICKING POINTS, LIKE

ABORTION, THE U.S.-ISRAELI

ALIGNS, AND HE SPOKE OUT

AGAINST THE STATE-WIDE

REFERENDUM THAT WOULD MAKE

SAME-SEX LEGAL IN MARYLAND.

FOR HIS MEMBERS, HIS WORDS

WERE TIMELY.

I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING,

THAT WE'VE BEEN PUSHED

PUSHED BACK FAR ENOUGH.

IT IS TIME TO SHOW OUR HEART

TO GOD AND THE WORLD, AND

WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE PUSHED

ALONGER.

Reporter: BUT THEY ALSO

DEFIED A DECADES-OLD POLICY,

THAT ALLOWS CHURCHES TO

ALLOW AS NON-PROFIT, AS LONG

AS THEY DON'T HAVE ANY

POLITICAL CAMPAIGNING FOR OR

AGAINST ANY CANDIDATE.

THE GOAL, ACCORDING TO THE

I.R.S., IS TO PLACE

CANDIDATES IN THE OFFICE,

BEYOND THE PASTORS SPEAKING

FROM THE PULPIT.

PULPIT FREEDOM SUNDAY

STARTED FOUR YEARS AGO WITH

MORE THAN 30 PASTORS

PARTICIPATING.

THIS YEAR THAT NUMBER

SKYROCKETED TO AN ESTIMATED

1500, WITH EACH OF THE

PASTORS PLEDGING TO RECORD

THEIR SERVICE AND SEND THEM

TO THE I.R.S.

FOR BISHOP JACKSON, HE SAYS

HE IS LESS CONCERNED ABOUT A

PUBLIC AUDIT THAN HE IS

ABOUT A PUBLIC BACKLASH

AGAINST HIM AND HIS CONG

CONGREGATION.

THE BACKLASH AND THE

RETRIBUTION THAT CAN COME

FROM THAT COMMUNITY IN THE

GREATER WASHINGTON, D.C.

AREA IS MUCH MORE

INTIMIDATING THAN THE

I.R.S., IN TERMS OF MY

MEMBERS HAVE TO DEAL WITH

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY.

Reporter: CRITICS, EVEN

SOME CLERGY, SAY IT IS MORE

IMPORTANT TO LIFT UP THE

NAME OF JESUS THAN POLITICAL

CANDIDATES.

BUT FOR BISHOP JACKSON AND

OTHERS, THEY SAY THE ISSUES

AT STAKE ARE TOO GRAVE TO

REMAIN SILENT.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A

LIBERAL APPROACH AS TO WHY

YOU WOULD CHOOSE ROMNEY, FOR

EXAMPLE.

AND I'M NOT GOING TO WAIT

FOREVER.

AND I FINALLY CAME TO THE

CONCLUSION YOU CAN'T JUST

LAY OUT A CASE AND NOT NAME

NAMES.

Reporter: JOHN JESSOP,

CBN NEWS, MARYLAND.

Lee: PAT, YOU HAVE TO

ADMIRE THEIR RESOLVE?

Pat: I ADMIRE IT.

IT IS A LITTLE QUICKSODIC.

LEE, I FOUGHT THAT BATTLE.

I'VE BEEN THERE IN THE

TRENCHES.

I LOBBIED CONGRESS ON

CHANGING THE LAW.

I ASKED THEM TO PUT IN ABOUT

THREE OR FOUR WORDS IN THE

I.R.S. CODE, AND INSERT THE

THING TO AN INSUBSTANTIAL

AMOUNT OF THEIR ACTIVITY.

I HAD IT ALL TEED UP TO GO,

AND LO AND BEHOLD, NEWT

GINGRICH WAS FOUND TO BE

INVOLVED IN POLITICKING A

HISTORY COURSE AT SOME

LITTLE COLLEGE DOWN IN

GEORGIA, AND THAT BECAME THE

FOCUS.

AND THEN THEY SAID RATHER

THAN LOOK LIKE THIS IS IN

FAVOR OF NEWT, WE'RE NOT

GOING TO DO ANYTHING.

AND SO CONGRESS PUNTED.

IT IS THERE, AND IT SHOULD

BE CHANGED.

IT WAS RAMMED THROUGH

WITHOUT DEBATE.

IT WAS RAMMED THROUGH

WITHOUT COMMITTEE ANALYSIS

OF THE LEGISLATION.

IT WAS PUT THROUGH BECAUSE

LYNDON B. JOHNSON WAS A

TYRANT. HE HAD TYRANNICAL

CONTROL OVER THE UNITED

STATES CONSTITUTION.

NOW THE LAW SAYS ANY

STATEMENT BY A NON-PROFIT IN

BEHALF OF OUR IN OPPOSITION

TO A CANDIDATE FOR PUBLIC

OFFICE CAN RESULT IN THE

REVOCATION OF TAX EXEMPT

STATUS.

I THINK CHURCHES HAVE A

CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOM TO

TALK ABOUT THESE THINGS.

THEY'VE HAD IT SINCE THE

FOUNDING OF OUR REPUBLIC.

IT IS SOMETHING THEY NEED TO

SPEAK OUT ABOUT, BUT IT IS

LIKE THE NAIL THAT STICKS

OUT, IT IS GOING TO GET A

HAMMER SLAMMED ON IT.

WHETHER THE I.R.S. IS GOING

TO LET THIS SLIP BY, THEY

PROBABLY WILL BECAUSE THEY

DON'T WANT THE HASSLE.

BUT THEY'RE MERELY FOLLOWING

WHY THE LAW SAYS, AND

REGRETTABLY, THE LAW IS

WRONG AND IT SHOULDN'T HAVE

BEEN THAT WAY.

IN MY OPINION, IT IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

BUT THE CHALLENGES HAVE BEEN

MANY, AND I'VE BEEN INVOLVED

IN TRYING TO GET

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS,

BUT ALL WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

IS TO AN INSUBSTANTIAL

AMOUNT OF ACTIVITY.

THAT'S ALL WE'RE ASKING.

IT IS AN ABSOLUTE

PROHIBITION NOW.

WHICH MEANS THE I.R.S. HAS A

GUN AT THE HEAD OF THE

NON-PROFIT, AND THEY CAN

PULL THE TRIGGER AND DESTROY

YOU ON THE STRENGTH OF

SOMEBODY COMES OUT AND SAYS,

I FAVOR THE ELECTION OF

OBAMA OR ROMNEY.

AND THE I.R.S. CAN COME ON

TOP OF THEM.

I DON'T KNOW.

Terry: I ADMIRE THEM,

AS WE SAID.

Pat: YOU ADMIRE THEM,

BUT WE NEED TO CHANGE THE

COTTON-PICKING LAW.

IT IS WRONG.

IT SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN PUT

IN.

THERE NEEDS TO BE ENOUGH

COURAGE IN THE UNITED STATES

CONGRESS TO CHANGE IT.

BUT, AS I SAY, I HAVE BEEN

THERE, DONE THAT, AND

FAILED.

LEE?

Lee: CALIFORNIA

GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN IS

TRYING TO BRING DOWN GAS

PRICES IN HIS STATE BY

RELAXING SOME REGULATIONS

TEMPORARILY.

PRICES JUMPED AN AVERAGE OF

16 CENTS, TO A RECORD $4.65

A GALLON.

SOME STATIONS CHARGING MORE

THAN $5, AND AT LEAST ONE IN

THE GOLDEN STATE WENT OVER

$6.

EXPERTS BLAME LAST MONTH'S

FIRE AT A GAS REFINERY, AND

PIPELINE PROBLEMS IN

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, BUT

MANY DRIVERS AREN'T BUYING

THAT.

I THINK IT IS JUST

OUTRAGEOUS.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE REASON

IS FOR THAT, AND I DON'T

BELIEVE WHAT IS BEING

PURPORTED.

IT IS JUST A MATTER OF

WE'RE GOING TO SOAK YOU A

LITTLE BIT MORE.

AND, YOU KNOW, THEY DON'T

CARE.

Lee: GOVERNOR BROWN HAS

ORDERED STATE SMOG

REGULATORS TO ALLOW A

CHEAPER BLEND OF WINTER GAS

LIE GASOLINE TO BE PRODUCED

A MONTH EARLIER.

YOU WONDER IF THIS WAS GOING

ON IN A SWING STATE, WOULD

IMPACT IT WOULD HAVE ON THE

ELECTION.

Pat: IT WOULD HAVE A

PROFOUND IMPACT.

IN MY 87 YEARS, I'VE DONE A

LOT OF THINGS.

AND ONE OF WHICH I WOULD

NEVER COUNSEL ANYBODY TO DO,

BUT I WAS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO

BUY AN OIL REFINERY IN

CALIFORNIA.

AND IT WAS SUFFICIENTLY

PRODUCTIVE TO HAVE CHANGED

THE BALANCE OF THE EQUATION

IN CALIFORNIA.

IT WAS GOING TO SUPPLY

INDEPENDENT STATIONS IN THE

SAN DIEGO AREA.

AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A

NICE BALANCE.

SO IF ONE OF THE OTHER

REFINERIES WENT DOWN, THIS

WOULD HAVE BEEN SUPPLYING

THE MARGIN.

THERE WAS A GROUP CALLED

"THE CITIZENS FOR A BETTER

ENVIRONMENT."

THEY BROUGHT A LAWSUIT.

THE LAWSUIT WAS UPHELD BY A

LEFT-WING JUDGE.

I SAY LEFT-WING -- HE WAS

APPOINTED BY, I THINK, BILL

CLINTON.

BUT HE WAS SOLIDLY AGAINST

REFINERIES.

AND THE IDEA WAS THIS JUDGE

SAID IF YOU WANT TO OPEN

THIS REFINERY, YOU'VE GOT TO

GO FOR WHAT IS CALLED "A NEW

SOURCE REVIEW."

WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE TO GO

BACK TO SQUARE ONE AND SPEND

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF

ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES TO

PROVE YOU WON'T HARM THE

ENVIRONMENT.

EVEN THOUGH THE E.P.A. HAD

CLEARED THIS REFINERY.

BUT THIS ONE LAWSUIT BY THIS

ONE GROUP, "CITIZENS FOR A

BETTER ENVIRONMENT," STOPPED

IT COLD, AND, OF COURSE, IT

COULDN'T CONTINUE BECAUSE

THE MONEY WASN'T THERE TO

KEEP IT GOING.

THEREFORE, THE PRICE OF

GASOLINE IN CALIFORNIA HAS

GONE UP BECAUSE THERE WAS NO

ESCAPE VALVE.

BUT THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

THESE GREENS, THESE

ENVIRONMENTALISTS, GET THEIR

HANDS ON THIS.

THEY DON'T CARE.

ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS CUT

DOWN THE EMISSIONS ON

REFINERY.

THEY DON'T LIKE AMERICAN

MANUFACTURING.

THEREFORE THERE IS A TYPE OF

BLEND THAT THE CALIFORNIA

AIRY SOURCE BOARD WANTS, THE

CARB STANDARDS, AND THEY'RE

VERY RESTRICTIVE, AND THE

REFINERIES HAVE TO BLEND IN

IN A PARTICULAR WAY.

AND SO NICE FOLKS IN

CALIFORNIA ARE GOING TO BE

PAYING $5 A GALLON OR $

$5.50 OR $6, OR HOWEVER

MUCH, AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE

PAYING A LOT MORE FOR YOUR

ELECTRICITY BECAUSE OF

ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS.

IF YOU LIKE THAT, YOU

CONTINUE, AND YOU CONTINUE

TO PAY AT THE PUMP.

OTHERS SAY WE CAN'T STAND

IT, AND PEOPLE ARE FLEEING

CALIFORNIA.

AND THEY'VE LOST A LOT OF

JOBS BECAUSE OF THIS.

BUT THIS IS THE PRICE WE

PAY.

THEY SAY THERE IS SO MUCH

SMOG IN THE VALLEY, THERE

WAS SO MUCH SMOG IN

LOS ANGELES, AND SO THEY SAY

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING.

AND THIS IS THEIR ANSWER.

Lee: PAT, THE

PHILIPPINES AND THE

COUNTRY'S LARGEST REBEL

GROUP HAVE REACHED A PEACE

AGREEMENT.

THE MUSLIM INSURGENCY HAS

LEFT MORE THAN 103 PEOPLE

DEAD.

WESTERN GOVERNMENTS WORRY

THE REBEL STRONGHOLDS WOULD

BECOME BREEDING GROUNDS FOR

al-QAEDA FIL AFFILIATED

EXTREMISTS.

THE NEW TELEVISION PROGRAMS

WILL SEE A NUMBER OF

INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF

GAY AND LESBIANS ON THE

SCREEN.

IT WILL BE THE HIGHEST LEVEL

EVER, 4.4% OF ACTORS ON

PRIME TIME ARE PORTRAYING

LESBIAN, GAY, BISENSUAL OR

TRANTRANSGENDER

CHARACTERS.

ACTION HAABC HAS THE

HIGHEST AMOUNT, AND CBS ALSO

HAS MORE GAY CHARACTERS THIS

SEASON.

BUSINESSMEN ARE GETTING OUT

OF FRANCE BEFORE NEW TAX

INCREASES HIT.

THAT MEANS HIGH-END REAL

ESTATE IS HITTING THE

MARKET.

THEY TELL AGENCY FRANCE

PRESS THAT EXPENSIVE HOMES

ARE COMING UP FOR SALE IN

PARIS AND ACROSS FRANCE.

FRANÇOIS HOLLANDE IS RAISING

THE TAX RATE TO 75% ON

INCOMES ABOVE A MILLION

EUROS A YEAR.

THAT IS ABOUT $1.3 MILLION.

AND MANY IN BUSINESS ARE

CONCERNED ABOUT POSSIBLE

FUTURE TAX HIKES.

SOME COMPLAIN ABOUT A

GROWING ATTITUDE AGAINST

BUSINESS IN FRANCE.

I'M GLAD WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

FRANCE.

I THOUGHT MAYBE WE WERE

TALKING ABOUT THE UNITED

STATES.

Pat: IT WILL BECOME

THAT IF WE CONTINUE THE

CURRENT POLICIES.

BUT I IT PROBABLY WON'T GET

AS BAD AS FRANCE.

BUT THEY'RE TRYING TO RAISE

THE CAPITAL GAINS TAX.

AND THAT WILL MAKE IT HARD

BECAUSE IF THEY WANT TO SELL

SOME OF THEIR STOCKS, THEY

CAN'T GET THE PAYOFF THEY

GET HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

SO THEY'RE MOVING.

BRUSSELS IS CLOSE.

IF YOU'RE ON A TRAIN, AND IN

ABOUT AN HOUR, YOU'RE OUT OF

FRANCE.

THEY CAN LEAVE.

THEY CAN GO TO MONTE CARLO,

THEY CAN GO TO SINGAPORE.

THEY CAN GO TO GENEVA,

WHEREVER, AND GET A DECENT

DEAL.

SO THESE GOVERNMENTS THAT

THINK THEY CAN TURN THE

SCREWS ON RICH PEOPLE ARE

VERY MISGUIDED BECAUSE THE

RICH CAN FLEE.

AND SOME OF YOU HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES MIGHT THINK OF

FLEEING IF THE POLICIES

CONTINUE.

Terry: THIS IS ONE

EUROPEAN TREND YOU HOPE

DOESN'T MAKE IT ACROSS THE

OCEAN.

Pat: IT IS THERE.

THE CONCEPT OF REGULATING

BUSINESS, THAT BUSINESS IS

EVIL, AND THAT WE HAVE TO

SQUEEZE IT AND MAKE IT PAY

ITS, QUOTE,"FAIR SHARE."

NOBODY KNOWS WHAT A "FAIR

SHARE" IS, BUT ONCE YOU

START TALKING "FAIR SHARE,"

AND IT IS UP TO THE

BUREAUCRAT TO DECIDE WHAT IS

FAIR.

IS IT 50%?

60%?

75%?

THE FRENCH SAY IT IS 75%.

I WAS TALKING TO A FRENCH

BUSINESSMAN A COUPLE OF

YEARS AGO, AND HE TOLD ME

ALL OF THE TAXES AND THEY

WERE PAYING 100%.

THEY HAD TAXES ON CAPITAL

SHARES, ON PROPERTY, ON

TRAN TRANSACTIONS OF EVERY

KIND, AND THEY'VE GOT TAXES

ON WORKERS, AND IT GOES ON

DOWN THE LINE.

NO FRENCH BUSINESSMAN IN HIS

RIGHT MIND WOULD HIRE

ANYBODY BECAUSE OF THE

ONEROUS LABOR REQUIREMENTS.

SOCIALISM CAN KILL ITSELF --

THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS --

BECAUSE IT CANNOT SURVIVE.

Terry: BUT WHAT

HAPPENED IN BETWEEN?

Pat: IN BETWEEN, IT IS

TOUGH.

Terry: UP NEXT, THE HOT

SUMMER MONTHS IN AFGHANISTAN

TAKE ITS TOLL NOT JUST ON

THE SOLDIERS, BUT THEIR

DOGS, TOO.

WHEN WE CAME BACK FROM

MISSION, HE WENT BACK TO HIS

KENNEL, AND PUT HIS PAWS IN

THE WATER BOWL.

Terry: WE'LL GO ON

PUPPY PATROL WITH THE REAL

DOGS OF WAR.

THAT'S NEXT.

TUESDAY...

I JUST WANT TO GO OUT

THERE AND HONOR HIS NAME

THROUGH THE TALENT HE HAS

GIVEN ME.

Lee: WE SQUARE OFF WITH

LOR RENENZO ALEXANDER.

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM

AND MY CAREER STARTING GOING

UP AS WELL.

Lee: PLUS, FALL IS IN

THE AIR.

SO GIVE YOURSELF AN AUTUMN

TREAT.

PAT SERVES UP A DISH OF HIS

MINASTRONI SOUP, TUESDAY ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

Pat: TOMORROW IS THE

BIG MINISTRON IN DAY.

I WANT TO SHOW PEOPLE THAT

GAR GORDON IS NOT THE ONLY

COOK IN MY FAMILY.

Terry: IT PASSED DOWN

FROM SOMEWHERE?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

HE REMINDED ME THAT THE

STUFF I COOKED WHEN MY WIFE

WAS SICK WAS JUST HORRIBLE.

THEY HAD SPANISH OMELETTES

EVERY DAY.

PLEASE, MOM, COME BACK.

ANYHOW, MY MINESTRONI IS

UNREAL.

IT IS AN ITALIAN DISH, BUT I

DID IT MY WAY.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IT

TOMORROW.

AND YOU CAN GET YOUR RECIPE

BOOK OUT AND YOU'RE LITTLE

PAD AND PENCIL, AND WE'LL

SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE A

DELICIOUS FALL SOUP.

I HAVE HAD DOGS SINCE I WAS

A LITTLE BOY.

DOGS.

WE HAVE A DOG NOW, AND WE'VE

HAD MANY DOGS.

MY WIFE AND I HAVE ALL KINDS

OF BREEDS AND ALL KINDS OF

DOGS.

AND DOGS ARE NOT ONLY MAN'S

BEST FRIEND, THEY CAN BE A

SOLDIER'S BEST FRIEND AS

WELL.

AND NOW THEY'RE AN IMPORTANT

PART OF THE WAR ON TERROR.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ONE OF

THESE CANINE HEROS GETS HURT

IN THE LINE OF DUTY.

CHUCK HOLTON HAS THAT STORY

FROM A SPECIAL HOSPITAL IN

GERMANY.

Reporter: NUMBERS OF

U.S. MILITARY PERSONNEL IN

AFGHANISTAN HAVE BEEN

DECREASING OVER THE PAST

COUPLE OF YEARS.

HOWEVER, THERE IS ONE SET OF

TROOPS IN COMBAT THAT IS

INCREASING.

BECAUSE OF THEIR KEEN SENSE

OF SMELL AND ACUTE

INTELLIGENCE, MILITARY

WORKING DOGS ARE BECOMING

MORE AND MORE CRUCIAL TO THE

WORK OVERSEAS.

BUT THE JOB DOESN'T COME

WITHOUT RISKS.

THEY, ALONG WITH THEIR

HANDLERS, LAY IT ON THE LINE

DAILY FOR THE SAFETY OF

THOSE AROUND THEM.

WHEN SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN

ARE INJURED IN THE WAR ZONE,

THEY'RE NORMALLY TRANSPORTED

TO GERMANY, WHERE THEY

RECEIVE SOME OF THE BEST

MEDICAL CARE ON THE PLANET.

IN RECENT YEARS, MORE AND

MORE MILITARY DOGS HAVE BEEN

WOUNDED IN THE LINE OF DUTY

AS WELL.

WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THEY COME

HERE, TO THE MILITARY DOG

CENTER IN GERMANY.

WE CAN GO MONTHS WITHOUT

SEEING ANY DOGS, AND WE CAN

GO A MONTH WHERE WE MIGHT

SEE FOUR OR FIVE.

Reporter: ARMY MAJOR

JACLYN PARKER IS A MILITARY

VETERINARIAN.

WE SEE MORE IN THE SUMMER

MONTHS, WHICH CORRESPONDS TO

WHEN THE ACTION PICKS UP IN

AFGHANISTAN.

Reporter: THEY SEE AS

MANY AS 20 DOGS A YEAR

COMING FROM THE COMBAT ZONE

IN IRAQ AND OTHER PLACES.

THIS IS THEO, AND HE CAME IN

FROM AFGHANISTAN WHERE HE

WAS BURNED JUST BY THE HOT

SAND.

HE IS GETTING GREAT CARE

FROM THE VET TECHS HERE IN

GERMANY.

THEO'S THERAPY WILL BE

BANDAGE CHANGES.

BUT HE'LL PROBABLY BE IN

BANDAGES FOR UP TO SIX TO

EIGHT WEEKS, DEPENDING ON

HOW WELL HE HEALS, SO WE CAN

PROTECT THE PAWS AND PADS

FROM FURTHER DAMAGE.

Reporter: THESE

MILITARY DOGS IN THEIR

HANDLERS WORK IN DIFFICULT

AND DANGEROUS CONDITIONS.

THEIR MISSION, TO FIND AND

DISARM EXPLOSIVES.

BOTH DOGS AND HANDLERS GO TO

TRAINING ZONES, AND THEN

HEAD TO THE WAR ZONE.

THIS SPECIALIST IS THEO'S

PARTNER.

I STARTED AS INFANTRY,

AND OUR BRIGADE NEEDED ABOUT

20 GUYS.

IT WAS A SELECTION PROCESS

YOU HAD TO GO THROU.

AND FROM THERE, WE DID THREE

MONTHS OF WORKING WITH THESE

DOGS AND WERE SHIPPED

STRAIGHT OVER TO

AFGHANISTAN.

Reporter: THERE IS NO

QUESTION THESE DOGS SAVED

LIVES BY SNIFFING OUT

EXPLOSIVES.

THEIR WORKING CONDITIONS CAN

BE BRUTAL, WITH SUMMER

CONDITIONS EASILY TOPPING

110°, WHICH CAN LEAD TO

SERIOUS INJURY.

WE WERE ON PATROL, AND

WALKING OUT TO A VILLAGE,

LOOKING FOR WEAPONS CASHES,

AND IT WAS TOO HOT FOR HIM.

IT STARTED BURNING HIS PAWS

UP.

THERE WAS NO SHADE OUT

THERE.

WHEN WE CAME BACK FROM THE

MISSION, HE WENT INTO HIS

KENNEL AND PUT HIS PAWS IN

THE WATER BOWL.

WE HAD TO GET HIM MEDIVACED

OUT OF THERE REAL QUICK.

Reporter: THE MILITARY

VET TECHS HERE WERE READY

AND WAITING TO SEE TO THEO'S

CARE.

SPECIALIST MORRIS COULDN'T

BE MORE HAPPY.

HE IS MOVING AROUND AND

WALKING, SO IT HAS BEEN REAL

GOOD.

Reporter: FELLOW

VETERANS FEEL CAMARADERIE

AND SUPPORT THAT FEW OTHERS

GET TO SHARE.

BUT WITH MILITARY WORKING

DOGS AND THEIR HANDLERS, THE

PHRASE "MAN'S BEST FRIEND"

IS TAKEN TO A WHOLE NEW

LEVEL.

HE HAS NOT ONLY SAVED MY

LIFE, BUT WHO KNOWS HOW

MANY.

Reporter: WHEN A DOG IS

TOO INJURED TO RETURN,

THEY'RE PUT UP FOR

ADOPTION.

341st WHO TRAINS THE

MILITARY WORKING DOGS HAS A

SITE WHERE YOU CAN SIGN UP

FOR ADOPTION OF A MILITARY

WORKING DOG.

A LOT OF TIMES THE HANDLERS

ADOPT THE DOGS WHEN THEY

RETIRE FROM SERVICE.

ONCE YOU FOUND AN

EXPLOSIVE, AND YOU SAY, I

FOUND THAT AND SAVED THOSE

GUYS BEHIND ME, THAT IS WHAT

IT IS ALL ABOUT.

Reporter: WHILE WORKING

MILITARY DOGS ARE NOT

GETTING

MEDALS,

BUT THEIR

SERVICE IS STILL VERY

APPRECIATED.

THEY DON'T GET MEDALS,

BUT THEY GET A TS TENNIS

BALL.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

WONDERFUL.

HARRY S. TRUMAN SAID IN

WASHINGTON, "IF YOU WANT A

FRIEND, GET A DOG."

Terry: IN WASHINGTON, I

AGREE.

Pat: THEY'RE

SELF-SACRIFICING AND THEY'LL

GO OUT AND KILL THEMSELVES

FOR THEIR OWNERS.

IT IS JUST AMAZING.

I DON'T KNOW, TERRY, WHY

THEY DON'T PUT LITTLE PADS

ON THEIR FEET.

Terry: I WONDER IF THEY

WOULD KEEP THEM ON.

MOST DOGS DON'T LIKE THAT.

Pat: THEY PROBABLY

WON'T LIKE IT, BUT, GOOD

GRIEF, THEY COULD TEACH THEM

HOW TO KEEP THEM ON.

Terry: THAT IS BRUTAL.

Pat: THAT'S ONE MORE

TYPE OF HERO WE TALKED

ABOUT.

WE TALK ABOUT OTHER HEROS

NOW.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT THE BATTLE THAT

SAVED AMERICA AND CHANGED

THE WORLD.

AND WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THE

SECRET WEAPON THAT SAVED THE

DAY.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: IF YOU'VE BEEN

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB," YOU

KNOW THAT THE FIRST SETTLERS

TO AMERICA PRAYED AS SOON AS

THEY ARRIVED, AND THEY

DEDICATED THIS LAND TO GOD.

BUT THOSE WEREN'T THE ONLY

PRAYERS THAT SHAPED OUR

NATION.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS,

WE'LL SHOW YOU PRAYERS THAT

SAVED A NATION, STARTING

WITH ONE FROM A YOUNG

SOLDIER NAMED GEORGE

WASHINGTON.

IT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR

MAN...

Reporter: IN 1755,

22-YEAR-OLD GEORGE

WASHINGTON WAS A BRITISH

COLONEL FIGHTING AGAINST THE

FRENCH AND THEIR NATIVE

AMERICAN ALLIES FOR CONTROL

OVER COLONIAL TERRITORY.

ON JULY 9th, THE BRITISH

MARCHED TOWARDS PRESENT-DAY

PITTSBURGH AND WERE ATTACKED

IN A RAVINE.

900 TROOPS WERE KILLED.

BUT WASHINGTON'S PRAYERS TO

JESUS CHRIST FOR PROTECTION

DIDN'T GO UNHEARD.

WASHINGTON IS RIDING BACK

AND FORTH DELIVERING

ORDERS.

EVERY OTHER OFFICER ON

HORSEBACK IS SHOT.

AND WASHINGTON LATER IS

RIDING FROM FORT CUMBERLAND

TO HIS BROTHER, AND HE SAYS,

BY THE ALL POWERFUL HAND OF

PROVIDENCE, I HAVE BEEN

PROTECTED BEYOND ALL HUMAN

EXPECTATION.

I HAD TWO HORSES SHOT OUT

FROM UNDER ME, AND FOUR

BULLET HOLES IN MY COAT, AND

YET ESCAPED UNHURT.

EVERY YEAR DURING THE

REVOLUTION, THE CONTINENTAL

CONGRESS DECLARED DAYS OF

FASTING AND PRAYER.

WASHINGTON WOULD ORDER HIS

TROOPS TO OBSERVE THE DAYS

OF FASTING AND PRAYER.

Reporter: BUT THEIR

PRAYERS AND FAITH AND GOD'S

PROTECTION WERE TESTED

DURING THE LARGEST BATTLE OF

THE REVOLUTION, THE BATTLE

OF BROOKLYN HEIGHTS.

WASHINGTON HAD ALL OF HIS

MEN DUG IN FACING THE WATER,

THINKING THE BRITISH WERE

GOING TO ATTACK FROM THE

SEA.

AUGUST 1776, WASHINGTON IS

ATTACKED FROM BEHIND.

3,000 OF HIS MEN GET KILLED,

ONLY ABOUT 300 OF THE

BRITISH.

AND THE DAY PASSES AND

WASHINGTON HAS HIS 8,000 MEN

PINNED UP AGAINST THE

WATER.

THE SUN GOES DOWN, AND WHAT

DOES HE DO?

HE CAN'T RETREAT, SO HE GETS

EVERY BOAT HE CAN FIND, AND

THEY FERRY ALL NIGHT LONG TO

MANHATTAN ISLAND.

THE NEXT MORNING, THE SUN

BEGINS TO COME UP, AND HALF

HIS MEN ARE ON DUTY, AND

HALF ARE STRUNG OUT.

AND HIS CHIEF INTELLIGENCE

SAYS AT THIS POINT A VERY

PROVIDENTIAL OCCURRENCE

HAPPENED, A FOG CAME OVER.

HERE WASHINGTON WAS ON THE

LAST BOAT THAT LEFT, AND

WHEN THE FOG LIFTED, THE

BRITISH CHARGED UP THE HILL

AND NOBODY WAS THERE.

SO THAT'S A SUPER NATURAL

INTERVENTION OF ALMIGHTY

GOD?

IT IS.

AND IF WASHINGTON LOST THE

WAR, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN

HUNG, AND WE WOULD HAVE BEEN

PART OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE.

AND THE MOVEMENT ACROSS THE

WORLD FOR POPULAR

SELF-GOVERNMENT, PEOPLE

RULING THEMSELVES, WOULD

HAVE NEVER TAKEN PLACE.

Terry: QUITE AN

ASTONISHING,

HISTORY-CHANGING STORY, AND

PRAYER WAS THE THING THAT

MADE THE DIFFERENCE.

Pat: IT IS AMAZING.

THE MIRACLE OF THE FOG

COMING ACROSS THE EAST

RIVER, AMAZING.

IF THAT ARMY HAD BEEN WIPED

OUT, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ALL

OVER.

NOT ONLY WOULD WASHINGTON

HAVE BEEN EXECUTED, BUT THE

WHOLE ARMY.

THE REVOLUTION WOULD HAVE

COLLAPSED.

Terry: AND, YOU KNOW,

THAT'S NOT THE ONLY TIME

SUCH THINGS HAVE HAPPENED IN

OUR HISTORY.

THERE IS A WONDERFUL BOOK

THAT SUSIE FEDERER HAS

WRITTEN, CALLED "MIRACLES IN

AMERICAN HISTORY."

ALL OF US SHOULD READ THIS

BECAUSE IT IS A GREAT

REMINDER OF OUR SPIRITUAL

HERITAGE IN OUR COUNTRY.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE ASKING ALL

OF YOU TO JOIN US AS WE LEAD

UP TO THIS ELECTION.

WE ARE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR AMERICA AND PRAYING FOR

OUR COUNTRY ON THE SET EVERY

DAY AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO

STOP UNTIL ELECTION DAY.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE PART OF

THAT, GIVE US A CALL AT

1-800-759-0700.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PRAYERS

FOR AMERICA.

WE'RE GOING TO ADD THEM TO

OUR PRAYER FLAG, WHICH IS

LOCATED RIGHT BEHIND US.

SOMEONE SAYING, I'M PRAYING

THAT WE WOULD TRULY BE ONE

NATION UNDER GOD.

AND SOMEONE ELSE SAYING, I'M

PRAYING FOR PEACE FOR OUR

COUNTRY AND AN END TO WAR.

Pat: WE BROUGHT 162,000

PEOPLE WHO ALREADY SAID WE

WANT TO BE PRAYING.

YOU KNOW, TERRY, GOD LOVES

AMERICA.

HE IS NOT FINISHED WITH

AMERICA.

WE'VE DONE SOME TERRIBLE

THINGS AND WE VIOLATED THE

VOF NAN COVENANT THAT WE

MADE WITH GOD.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, HE

REMEMBERS THE PRAYERS AND

THE SACRIFICE OF GODLY

PEOPLE THROUGH THE CENTURIES

WHO HAVE BEEN PART OF THE

FABRIC OF THIS NATION.

HE CARES ABOUT AMERICA, AND

HE WILL HEAR THE PRAYERS OF

HIS PEOPLE.

SOMEBODY SAYS I WANT A THIRD

GRADE AWAKENING, AND I'D

LIKE TO SEE THE END OF

ABORTION.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN OUR

HANDS TOGETHER AND JOIN WITH

US AS WE PRAY DAY AFTER DAY

AFTER DAY, AND SAY, GOD,

SEND REVIVAL.

HEAR THE PRAYER OF YOUR

PEOPLE.

FATHER, TERRY AND I JOIN

TOGETHER WITH THOUSANDS OF

OTHERS WHO ARE PRAYING.

WE PRAY FOR THIS GREAT

NATION.

WE PRAY FOR REVIVAL.

WE PRAY FOR THE ANOINTING OF

YOUR HOLY SPIRIT TO COME

DOWN.

LORD, WE CONFESS OUR SINS.

WE'RE SINFUL PEOPLE.

WE HAVE VIOLATED THE

COVENANT WE MADE WITH YOU,

AND YOU MADE WITH US.

BUT, GOD, FORGIVE OUR SINS

AND HEAL OUR LAND.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, MAY WE

SEE YOUR INTERVENTION,

ESPECIALLY AS THIS GREAT

ELECTION COMES UPON US IN

THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

IN THE FLAM NAME OF JESUS,

GIVE A MIRACLE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: AMEN.

Terry: I WANT TO SAY TO

PEOPLE, IF YOU'D STILL LIKE

TO BE A PART OF JOINING US

IN THIS PRAYER ENDEAVOR, YOU

CAN DO THAT BY CALLING OUR

TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SHARE WITH US WHAT

YOU'RE PRAYING FOR OUR

COUNTRY, AND YOU MIGHT WANT

TO ASK AT THAT TIME TO HAVE

STEPS TO REVIVAL IN AMERICA

SENT TO YOU.

PAT HAS WRITTEN THIS, AND HE

TALKS ABOUT THE COVENANT

THAT AMERICA HAS WITH THE

LORD.

IT HAS BEEN BROKEN, AS YOU

MENTIONED, BUT HE ALSO

SHARES IN THERE, IS THERE AN

OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO ONCE

AGAIN REESTABLISH OUR

POSITION WITH THE LORD?

SO YOU WANT TO GET AHOLD OF

THIS, EVEN AS YOU PRAY WITH

US FOR THE COUNTRY.

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, STILL AHEAD, THEY MAY

HAVE HEARD SOMEONE SAY THEY

COULD WIN A FIGHT WITH ONE

HAND TIED BEHIND THEIR BACK,

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO SHOW

YOU A MAN WHO WON THE NCAA'S

WRESTLING TITLE WITHOUT THE

USE OF HIS RIGHT LEG.

HE'LL SHARE HIS OWN STORY

WHEN WE RETURN.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

VENEZUALA'S PRESIDENT HAS

WON RE-ELECTION IN HIS TIGHT

TEST RACE YET.

HE FACED A TOUGH CHALLENGE.

HE PROMISED TO TAKE ON

VIOLENT CRIME, THE

BUREAUCRACY AND GOVERNMENT

CORRUPTION.

BUT IN THE END, CHAVEZ WAS

WINNING BY NEARLY 10 POINTS

WITH 90% OF THE VOTE

COUNTED.

HE TOLD HIS SUPPORTERS THAT,

QUOTE,"THE REVOLUTION HAS

TRIUMPHED."

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS

SUPPORTING A SPECIAL

ORPHANAGE IN MONGOLIA.

IT HELPS SPECIAL-NEEDS

CHILDREN, AND HELPS CHILDREN

LIVE IN A FAMILY UNIT.

EFFORTS ARE MADE TO REUNITE

CHILDREN WITH THEIR PARENTS

ONCE THEIR HOME LIFE IS

SAFE.

AND THEY ARE PLACING

CHILDREN IN LOVING HOMES.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND TERRY

WILL BE BACK IN A MOMENT.

Terry: WHEN ANTHONY

ROBILUS WAS FIVE YEARS OLD,

HE MANAGED TO SCALE A

50-FOOT POLE BY HIMSELF,

EVEN THOUGH HE WAS BORN

WITHOUT A LEG.

FROM THAT MOMENT ON,

ANTHONY'S MOTHER KNEW HER

SON WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE.

YEARS LATER, SHE'S BEEN

PROVEN RIGHT.

HI, MY NAME IS ANTHONY

ROBILUS, AND I'M AN NCAA

DIVISION ONE NATIONAL

WRESTLING CHAMPION.

I GUESS WHAT MAKES ME SO

UNIQUE, I'M THE ONLY ONE TO

WIN A TITLE WITH ONLY ONE

LEG.

Reporter: WHAT HE

LACKED IN BODY, HE MADE UP

FOR IN HEART.

HIS MOTHER ALWAYS ENCOURAGED

HIM TO FIND HIS PURPOSE.

SHE WOULD ALWAYS TELL ME,

DON'T BE ASHAMED.

GOD MADE YOU FOR A REASON.

THERE IS A PLAN FOR YOU.

Reporter: HE FOUND THAT

PURPOSE ON THE WRESTLING MAT

WHEN HE WAS 14 YEARS OLD.

I FELT LIKE THAT WAS MY

CALLING.

I STRUGGLED FOR QUITE A BIT,

BUT I ALWAYS KNEW THAT

WRESTLING WAS SOMETHING I

WAS MEANT TO DO.

Reporter: HIS BOOK,

"UNSTOPPABLE," SHARES HOPE

FOR ANYONE WHOEVER DOUBTED

THEY COULD ACCOMPLISH THEIR

DREAMS.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" THE AUTHOR

OF "UNSTOPPABLE," ANTHONY

ROBILUS.

THANK YOU.

Terry: YOU WERE BORN

WITHOUT A LEG.

DID THE DOCTORS EVER FIND

OUT WHY?

NO.

IT WAS A COMPLETE SHOCK.

STILL TO THIS DAY, THEY

CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS

HAPPENED.

MY MOM SAID GOD MADE ME THIS

WAY FOR A REASON.

Terry: GROWING UP,

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN YOU

JUST WANTED TO BLEND IN.

I THINK ALL KIDS ARE LIKE

THAT, DON'T YOU?

BUT YOUR MOM GAVE YOU A

DIFFERENT WORD OF

ENCOURAGEMENT.

WHAT DID SHE SAY TO YOU?

SHE ALWAYS TOLD ME TO BE

PROUD OF WHO I WAS.

SHE SAYS YOU'RE UNIQUE, AND

GOD MADETHAT WAY FOR A

PURPOSE.

IT IS BECAUSE OF THAT, SHE

HELPED ME WITH MY CON

CONFIDENCE.

BEING A KID GROWING UP, IT

WOULD BE REALLY DIFFICULT.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY I

WOULD GO PLACES AND PEOPLE

WOULD STARE AND WHISPER

THINGS.

BUT MY MOM, MY NUMBER ONE

FAN, WOULD SAY YOU'RE OKAY,

GOD MADE YOU THAT WAY, AND

BE PROUD.

IT REALLY HELPED ME

THROUGH.

Terry: THAT'S AWESOME.

WHY WRESTLING?

HOW DID YOU GET INTO THAT?

IT WAS ACTUALLY AN OLDER

COUSICOUSIN OF MINE WHO

SUGGESTED IT.

I WOULD BE SITTING ON THE

SIDE LINE AND LEARNING THE

MOVEMENTS IN MY HEAD.

AND ONE DAY HE PUSHED ME ON

THE MAT AND SAID YOU'RE

GOING TO TRY IT.

I GOT BEAT UP, BUT I LOVED

IT.

Terry: WHEN YOU STARTED

WRESTLING, YOU WERE 14 YEARS

OLD?

14.

Terry: SMALLEST GUY ON

THE TEAM?

90 POUNDS.

Terry: GOODNESS.

YOU GOT BEAT A LOT?

I GOT BEAT A LOT.

Terry: WAS THAT

DISCOURAGING FOR YOU?

IT WAS VERY

DISCOURAGING.

I MADE IT TO THE CITY

TOURNAMENT, AND I WAS LAST.

SO I WAS LAST IN THE CITY OF

ARIZONA.

Terry: WHAT MADE YOU

KEEP GOING?

I WAS SO FRUSTRATED.

THAT NIGHT I LOST, AND I GOT

THE TITLE OF WORST WRESTLER

IN ARIZONA --

Terry: GREAT HONOR.

YEAH, GREAT HONOR.

I THOUGHT, I'M DONE.

FROM HERE ON OUT, I'M THE

BEST.

I WROTE DOWN ON THIS LITTLE

STICKY, THAT GOAL, I WROTE

"STATE CHAMPION ON."

AND I COULD SEE IT AND STAY

FOCUSED.

Terry: YOU HEAR A LOT

OF GREAT PEOPLE TALK ABOUT

THAT, THEY WROTE DOWN THE

VISION, AND IT MADE ALL OF

THE DIFFERENCE.

WHEN YOU STARTED WINNING,

PEOPLE STARTED COMING

AGAINST YOU, SAYING YOU HAD

AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

IT WAS A LITTLE

SURPRISING -- IT WAS VERY

SURPRISING TO ME, ACTUALLY.

Terry: YEAH.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED, I

WAS STRUGGLING THROUGH, AND

THIS LITTLE 90-POUND KID,

AND THEY'RE SAYING, POOR

GUY, HE IS JUST TRYING TO

COMPETE.

BE HAPPY YOU'RE OUT THERE.

YOU'RE DOING WELL.

AS I STARTED GETTING BETTER,

IT SWITCHED.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

MY COACH TOLD ME, YOU KNOW

YOU'RE GETTING SOMEWHERE

WHEN THEY START TALKING

NEGATIVE ABOUT YOU.

Terry: MY GRANDMA USED

TO SAY, JUST MAKE SURE THEY

SPELL YOUR NAME RIGHT.

I LIKE THAT.

Terry: I KNOW YOU

WALKED ON TO THE WRESTLING

TEAM AT ARIZONA STATE.

AND DURING THE TIME YOU WERE

THERE, YOUR FAMILY WENT

THROUGH SOME DIFFICULTIES.

YOU ALMOST WALKED AWAY FROM

SCHOOL.

TELL US ABOUT THAT?

I DID.

I WAS A WALK-ON AT ARIZONA

STATE AS A FRESH MAN.

I DIDN'T GET RECRUITED A

LOT.

A LOT OF SCHOOLS SAID IT WAS

TOO SMALL.

I WAS ON A FULL RIDER

SCHOLARSHIP, AND THERE WAS A

LOT OF FAMILY ISSUES GOING

ON BETWEEN MY SOPHOMORE AND

JUNIOR YEAR, AND I WAS BURNT

OUT.

MY MOM WAS STRUGGLING, AND

SHE WAS LOSING THE HOUSE,

BECAUSE MY STEPFATHER, WHO

RAISED ME, BASICALLY

DISAPPEARED.

I HAD A BAD YEAR AS A

SENIOR, AND I TOLD MYSELF IT

IS TIME TO QUIT.

I WANT TO WALK AWAY AND GO

BACK AND HELP THE FAMILY

OUT.

Terry: YOUR MOM SOUNDS

LIKE SHE IS QUITE AN AMAZING

LADY.

SHE IS QUITE AMAZING.

SHE HAD ME AT 16 YEARS OLD.

SHE WAS NEVER ONE TO TELL

ME, ARE YOU SURE?

SHE WAS ALWAYS JUST

ENCOURAGING ME.

ACTUALLY WHEN I TOLD HER I

WANTED TO QUIT WRESTLING,

AND BY DOING SO I WOULD HAVE

TO WITHDRAW FROM COLLEGE,

SHE WOULDN'T HEAR IT.

SHE SAYS, NO, GOD HAS US

HERE FOR A REASON.

YOU'LL BE FINE.

SHE WANTED ME TH TO STICK

WITH SCHOOL AND STICK WITH

MY DREAM.

Terry: IN 2011, YOU

WERE WRESTLING WITH THE

NATIONAL CHAMPION ON THE

LINE.

WALK US THROUGH EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED.

AH, IT WAS A SCARY THREE

DAYS FOR ME.

NATIONAL TOURNAMENT.

Terry: A LOT OF

PRESSURE?

A LOT OF PRESSURE.

I WAS UNDEFEATED GOING INTO

THE TOURNAMENT.

IT WAS 7:05 IN PHILADELPHIA,

AND I'M ABOUT TO REVEL

WRESTLE FOR THE NATIONAL

CHAMPIONSHIP.

I REMEMBER FIGHTING BACK

TEARS.

THERE WERE 20,000 PEOPLE IN

THE ARENA AND I KNEW PEOPLE

WERE WATCHING AT HOME.

WHEN I STEPPED ON THE MAT

AND MY FAMILY LOOKED AT ME,

THE FEAR KIND OF DRAINED OUT

OF ME.

I ALWAYS HAD BIBLE VERSES

THAT ENCOURAGED ME.

MATTHEW 19: 26, AND IT SAYS

"WITH MAN, THINGS ARE

IMPOSSIBLE, BUT WITH GOD,

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE."

AND SEEING MY FAMILY THERE

AND GOD THERE, IT STARTED TO

CLICK IN MY MIND.

AND I WAS LIKE, GO OUT THERE

AND HAVE SOME FUN.

Terry: I'M READY FOR

THIS.

I'M NEVER FOR THIS.

Terry: YOU SAY YOU

NEVER PRAY FOR VICTORY.

WHAT DO YOU PRAY FOR?

I JUST PRAY FOR GOD TO

KEEP ME SAFE.

NOT JUST FOR ME, BUT FOR MY

OPPONENT.

HE'S MY BROTHER IN THIS

SPORT.

GOD HAS BLESSED ME SO MUCH

NOT JUST WITH WRESTLING, BUT

WITH FAMILY AND PEOPLE ALL

AROUND ME.

Terry: WHAT ARE YOU

DOING NOW?

I'M TRAVELING AS A

MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER.

AND I'M ON A BOOK TOUR.

I REALLY WANT TO GIVE BACK

AND HELP OTHERS.

WE ALL GO THROUGH OUR OWN

CHALLENGES, BUT THERE IS

NOTHING YOU CAN'T OVERCOME.

Terry: WHAT A STORY

YOU'VE GOT TO TELL, AND YOU

TELL IT SO WELL.

WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US.

AND IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ALL

OF THE DETAILS OF ANTHONY'S

STORY, AND THERE ARE MANY,

AND IT IS CALLED

"UNSTOPPABLE, FROM UNDERDOG

TO CHAMPION, HOW I BECAME

UNDEFEATED."

HIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE IN

BOOKSTORES.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: AND ONE PERSON

ASKS, PAT, WHY ARE THERE TWO

DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS OF JUDAS

IN THE BIBLE?

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE PAT

ANSWER THAT QUESTION AND

MUCH MORE COMING UP NEXT.

Pat: OKAY.

Terry: WE HAVE A FEW

MINUTES LEFT, AND WE WANT TO

ANSWER SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

PAT, WILLIAM HAS SUBMITTED

THIS FIRST ONE, "PAT, WHY

ARE THERE TWO DIFFERENT

ACCOUNTS OF JUDAS' DEATH IN

THE BIBLE.

ONE SAYS HE HANGED HIMSELF,

AND THE OTHER SAYS HIS

BOWELS CAME OUT.

WHAT GIVES?"

Pat: YOU KNOW

SOMETHING --

Terry: IT IS OKAY TO

SAY IT.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

THE TWO THINGS COULD

NECESSARILY WORK TOGETHER.

IF SOMEBODY HANGS HIMSELF,

HE CAN FALL FORWARD.

IF YOU HANG YOURSELF, YOU

CAN FALL FORWARD AND THERE

COULD BE A RENDERING OF YOUR

BOWELS.

IT COULD HAVE HAPPENED THAT

WAY.

Terry: I DON'T KNOW.

WE WEREN'T THERE.

Pat: I REALLY DON'T

KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW.

THAT WILL BE ONE OF THOSE

THINGS YOU CAN ASK THE LORD

WHEN YOU GET TO HEAVEN.

IF YOU WANT TO.

I REALLY DON'T CARE.

Terry: THIS IS JULIO

WHO SAYS, "HOW CAN I DEVELOP

A DEEP HUNGER FOR GOD'S WORD

AND ALSO BE MORE INTIMATE

WITH JESUS?"

Pat: THE MORE TIME YOU

SPEND WITH HIM, THE MORE

INTIMATE YOU GET WITH HIM,

THE MORE YOU UNDERSTAND

HIM.

I'LL TELL YOU, WHEN YOU READ

THE WORD AND YOU REALLY READ

IT CAREFUL AND YOU SAVOR

WHAT'S THERE, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN THE REVELATION COMES

TO YOU AND THE TREMENDOUS

TRUTH COMES TO YOU.

I WAS READING 1 CORINTHIANS

TODAY AND I WAS READING

THINGS I HASN'T READ

BEFORE.

AS YOU READ IT, IT GETS

DEEPER AND DEEPER.

IN TERMS OF JESUS, THE MORE

TIME YOU SPEND WITH HIM, THE

MORE YOU LOVE HIM.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO

SAY.

IF YOU SPEND TIME READING,

ABSORBED IN TELEVISION,

ABSORBED IN MOVIES, ABSORBED

IN DAILY LIFE, YOU WILL NOT

FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS.

YOU WILL BE IN LOVE WITH

YOUR DAILY LIFE.

IT IS TIME.

Terry: HE PROMISES,

TOO, THAT WHEN WE DRAW NEAR

TO HIM, HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO

US.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT,

TERRY.

THANK YOU.

Terry: VICTORIA

SAYS, "I BELIEVE IT IS GOD'S

WELL THAT I CARE FOR MY

EXTENDED FAMILY, BUT I HAVE

BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS AND

IT MAS BEEN BECOME SO

DEMANDING AND OVERWHELMING.

IT HAS ALREADY COST ME ALL

OF MY MONEY AND NOW MY

SANITY.

WILL GOD BE MAD AT ME IF I

TELL MY FAMILY MEMBERS TO

STOP COMING TO ME FOR

HELP?"

Pat: HEAVENS NO.

THE BIBLE SAYS, "IF ANY MAN

WILL NOT WORK, LET HIM NOT

EAT."

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

THERE IS NO FLOPPY AGOPOPE

IN THERE THAT SAYS YOU'VE

GOT TO LOOK AFTER THEM.

Terry: SOMETIMES YOU

ENABLE THEM.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

WHY WOULD YOU, THE POOR SOUL

THAT YOU ARE,

BE, QUOTE,"BURDENEDED WITH

THIS EXTENDED FAMILY?"

THE ANSWER IS, IF THEY DON'T

CARRY THEIR OWN WEIGHT, LET

THEM STARVE.

Terry: THEY WON'T

STEPHEN.

THEY'L -- STARVE.

THEY'LL RISE UP.

Pat: YOU ENABLE THEM.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: MINI SAYS MY

HUSBAND DIED A FEW YEARS

AGO.

AND I MET A NEW MAN BUT HE

HAS THREE OR FOUR EX-WIVES.

AM I COMMITTING ADULTERY BY

MARRYING HIM?

Pat: IF HE HAS GOT

THREE OR FOUR WIVES, WHY

WOULD YOU THINK OF HOOKING

UP WITH A GUY LIKE THAT?

HE ISN'T STABLE.

IT IS A QUICKIE RELATIONSHIP

AND HE IS ON TO SOMETHING

ELSE.

HE IS NOT A STABLE MAN.

GET SOMEBODY WHO IS STABLE.

YOU DON'T WANT THAT.

IT WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE, IN

ADDITION TO THE ADULTERY

PART OF IT.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR RIGHT

NOW.

BUT WE SURE DO APPRECIATE

THE FACT THAT YOU SEND IN

YOUR QUESTIONS AND WE TRY TO

GET TO THEM AS OFTEN AS YOU

CAN.

Pat: TOMORROW I'M GOING

TO SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE THE

BEST MINESTRONI SOUP.

IT IS NOT A FAMILY RECIPE.

IT IS SOMETHING I PUT

TOGETHER ABOUT TWO WEEKS

AGO.

Terry: WE'RE GETTING IT

HOT OFF THE PRESS.

Pat: IT ISN'T SOME

OLD-FASHIONED FAMILY

RECIPE.

IT IS BROTHER PAT THROWING A

BUNCH OF STUFF IN A POT.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM MATTHEW:

"ANYONE WHO LISTENS TO MY

TEACHING IS WISE, LIKE A

PERSON WHO BUILDS A HOUSE ON

SOLID ROCK."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.
