The 700 Club - October 17, 2012

Author and nationally syndicated radio talk show host Delilah shares her secret to success. Plus, St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is driven by more than just money and success on the field. Read Transcript


HE MAY BE 6' 2," 240, BUT

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN HE WAS

THE SMALLEST PLAYER ON THE

FIELD.

HE PUT ME AS RUNNERBACK.

WITH EVERY CITY I STOP IN, I

WANT TO LEAVE A POSITIVE

IMPRINT ON THAT CITY.

YOU CALLED THE DELILAH

SHOW, WHO IS THIS?

Reporter: PLUS

8 MILLION PEOPLE LISTEN TO

HER RADIO SHOW EVERY NIGHT,

AND NOW RADIO HOST DELILAH

TELLS US WHAT INSPIRES HER

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

♪♪♪

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT WAS A LITTLE

INCONCLUSIVE, AND I BELIEVE

THERE WAS SOME WHO WILL NOT

BE NAMED WHO ACTUALLY FELL

ASLEEP HALF WAY THROUGH.

[LAUGHTER]

Kristi: NAME THEM,

PAT.

Pat: I WILL NOT NAME

THEM.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THE

GLOVES WERE OFF, AND A TOUGH

DEBATE BETWEEN PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND GOVERNOR MITT

ROMNEY.

NEITHER CANDIDATE BACKED

DOWN.

Kristi: PAT, THEY

CONFRONTED EACH OTHER ON

EVERYTHING, FROM JOBS AND

THE ECONOMY TO THE TERRORIST

ATTACK IN LIBYA.

DAVID BRODY HAS THE STORY

FROM LONG ISLAND,

NEW YORK.

Reporter: AFTER A

LISTLESS PERFORMANCE

DURING THE FIRST DEBATE IN

DENVER, IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG

FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA TO COME

OUT SWINGING.

GOVERNOR, WHEN YOU WERE

GOVERNOR, YOU STOOD BEFORE A

COAL PLANT AND SAYS HIS

PLANT KILLS AND SHUT IT

DOWN.

Reporter: AND ROMNEY

STAYED AGGRESSIVE WITH THE

PRESIDENT.

YOU'LL GET YOUR CHANCE IN

A MOMENT.

I'M STILL SPEAKING.

Reporter: AND HE SAID

THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS A

POOR RECORD ON DRILLING FOR

OIL.

AND PRODUCTION ON

GOVERNMENT LAND IS DOWN.

President Obama: NO, IT

ISN'T.

GOVERNOR, WHAT YOU'RE SAYING

IS NOT TRUE.

IT IS JUST NOT TRUE.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

Reporter: AND THEY

SPARRED OVER CHINA.

ROMNEY SAID THEY WOULD GET

TOUGH WITH THEM ON TRADE.

THAT LED TO THIS EXCHANGE.

President Obama: KEEP

IN MIND THAT GOVERNOR ROMNEY

INVESTED IN COMPANIES THAT

WERE PIONEERS IN CHINA.

MR. PRESIDENT, DID YOU

LOOK AT YOUR PENSION?

President Obama: I

DON'T LOOK AT YOURS.

IT'S NOT AS BIG AS YOURS.

YOU ALSO HAVE INVESTMENT

IN CHINESE COMPANIES.

Reporter: AND BOTH MEN

SPENT A GOOD PART OF THE

TIME AS PAINTING THEIR PLAN

AS BAD FOR AMERICA.

President Obama:

GOVERNOR DOESN'T HAVE A

FIVE-POINT PLAN.

HE HAS A ONE-POINT PLAN, AND

THAT IS TO MAKE SURE THE

FOLKS AT THE TOP PLAY BY A

DIFFERENT SET OF RULES.

HE SAID BY NOW WE WOULD

HAVE UNEMPLOYMENT AT 5.4%.

THE DIFFERENCE IS NINE

MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF

WORK.

I WASN'T THE ONE WHO SAID

5.4%.

THIS WAS THE PRESIDENT'S

PLAN.

IT DIDN'T GET THERE.

Reporter: AND ROMNEY

WAS ASKED ABOUT HOW HE WOULD

BE DIFFERENT FROM PRESIDENT

OBAMA, AND HE GAVE A FEW

DIFFERENT WAYS.

I'M GOING TO GET US TO A

BALANCED BUDGET.

PRESIDENT BUSH DIDN'T.

President Obama: THERE

ARE SOME THINGS WHERE

GOVERNOR ROMNEY IS DIFFERENT

FROM GEORGE BUSH.

GEORGE BUSH DIDN'T PROPOSE

TURNING MEDICARE INTO A

VOUCHER.

Reporter: AFTER ALL OF

THE TOPICS, IT WAS THE

CONTROVERSY OVER THE U.S.

EMBASSY ATTACK IN BENGHAZI,

LIBYA.

ROMNEY SUGGESTED THAT THE

PRESIDENT MAY HAVE WITHHELD

INFORMATION ABOUT WHETHER

THE INCIDENT WAS A TERRORIST

ATTACK OR NOT.

YOU HAVE TO ASK

YOURSELVES WHY DIDN'T WE

KNOW THAT IT WAS A TERRORIST

ATTACK, WHEN THE AMBASSADOR

WENT ON TV TO SAY THIS WAS A

DEMONSTRATION.

HOW COULD NOT KNOW.

President Obama: THE

SUGGESTION THAT ANYBODY ON

MY TEAM, THE SECRETARY OF

STATE OR THE U.N.

AMBASSADOR, WOULD PLAY

POLITICS OR MISLEAD, WHEN

WE'VE LOST FOUR OF OUR OWN,

GOVERNOR, IS OFFENSIVE.

THAT'S NOT WHAT WE DO.

Reporter: WHILE THE

NUMBER ONE ISSUE ON VOTERS'

MINDS IS THE ECONOMY, THAT

WILL NOT BE THE TOPIC OF

DEBATE IN FLORIDA.

INSTEAD, IT WILL BE ABOUT

FOREIGN POLICY.

AND THE ROMNEY CAMP SAY THEY

HAVE A MAJOR OPENING WITH

THE HANDLING OF THE ATTACK

IN LIBYA.

Pat: THERE ARE SOME WHO

WONDER WHY WOULD THE

COMPAIGNS GO TO NEW YORK?

THAT ISN'T A FAVORABLE STATE

FOR ROMNEY.

AND WHY HOFSTRA.

AND YOU SAY, WHY DIDN'T THEY

GO TO OHIO, OR SOME OTHER

STATE WHERE HE CAN GAIN SOME

VOTES.

YOU FOUND IT RATHER SOME

NEVELANT.

Kristi: THERE WAS SOME

SPICE THERE, BECAUSE ROUND

ONE HE WASN'T THERE.

THERE WAS A DUAL, BUT I

DON'T KNOW IF I WAS STARTING

TO GET TIRED BECAUSE OF THE

DUEL.

Pat: IT IS OFFENSIVE

THAT WOULD YOU CLAIM ANY

MEMBER OF MY ADMINISTRATION

COVERED UP.

WELL, THEY COVERED UP FOR A

WHOLE COTTON-PICKING WEEK.

TO SAY THAT IS OFFENSIVE --

THAT'S A DEBATE TACTIC.

AND TO CLAIM THAT THE

INCREASE IN OIL PRODUCTION

WAS SOMEHOW HIS DOING IS

ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS.

THE FRACKING THAT WENT ON,

THE E.P.A. WAS EITHER

NEUTRAL OR OPPOSED.

THEY OPPOSED THE KEYSTONE

X.L. PIPELINE COMING IN FROM

CANADA TO GIVE US A NEW

SOURCE OF CRUDE FOR OUR

REFINERIES.

IT STILL HASN'T CLEARED HIS

GOVERNMENT.

FOR HIM TO SAY, LOOK, I WANT

ABUNDANCE OF ENERGY, FOR US

TO BE ENERGY-INDEPENDENT,

NONSENSE.

AND ANOTHER ONE OF THE

COMPANIES THEY BACKED HAS

JUST GONE BELLY UP.

THEY JUST DECLARED

BANKRUPTCY.

YOU HAVE SALINDRA, A HALF

BILLION DOLLARS.

HE CAN'T DEFEND THAT.

SO THE WAY TO DEFEND IT IS

TO GO AFTER HIS OPPONENT.

AND LOOKING LIKE HE IS

STRONG, WELL, THAT'S NOT

TRUE.

WHAT ROMNEY SAID WAS TRUE,

BUT IT IS A DEBATE

AUDIENCE.

UNLESS YOU'VE GOT A FACT

CHECKER COMING OUT, AND I

THINK CANDY CRAWLEY WAS IN

THE PRESIDENT'S CORNER.

YOU DIDN'T WATCH IT LONG

OFF?

I DID, PAT.

BUT LIKE MANY AMERICANS,

THERE ARE MANY WHO ARE TORN

EITHER WAY.

Pat: I WASN'T.

THAT STUFF GETS ME SICK.

THE FIRST ONE WAS VERY

WELL-DONE, AND JIM LEHRER

WAS A TREMENDOUS MODERATOR

BECAUSE HE KEPT HIS HANDS

OFF OF IT.

LET'S SEE WHAT THE POLITICAL

PUNDITS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT

THE DEBATE.

LEE WEBB WEB HAS THAT

STORY.

Lee: GREG SERGEANT OF

THE "WASHINGTON POST" SAYS

THE DEBATE WAS A BOOST FOR

THE PRESIDENT.

HE WRITES "THIS RACE WILL

STILL BE THE DEAD HEAT, BUT

OBAMA MADE BIG STRIDES IN

TURNING THINGS AROUND."

AND ONE WRITES, "THAT OBAMA

WAS STRONGER LAST NIGHT,

DOESN'T MITIGATE THE DIRE

EFFECTS OF THE FIRST CLASH

ON OCTOBER 3."

AND JEFF GREENFIELD OF YAHOO

NEWS DIDN'T BELIEVE IT WILL

MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR THOSE

WHO MINDS WERE CHANGED BY

THAT FIRST DEBATE.

HE SAYS IT SEEMS UNLIKELY IT

WILL CAUSED THOSE IMPRESSED

BY ROMNEY TO RECONSIDER.

AND RON FORNIER SUMS UP THE

VIEWS OF MANY ANALYSTS BY

SAYING, "DEMOCRATIC AND

REPUBLICAN PARTI SANS

WILL LIKELY CELEBRATE THE

DEBATE, BUT IT WILL DO

NOTHING, LIKELY TO CHANGE

THINGS."

THE HEAD OF ONE BUSINESS

GROUP TELLS THE LONDON

TELEGRAPH THAT BANKRUPTCY

HAVE SKYROCKETED, AND

INVESTORS HAVE LOST

CONFIDENCE.

ANOTHER GROUP HAS SENT OUT A

PROTEST CALLED "STATE OF

EMERGENCY FOR BUSINESS."

FRANCE HAS HAD LITTLE

ECONOMIC GROWTH FOR MORE

THAN A YEAR NOW.

THE MONTANA STATE SUPREME

COURT HAS ORDERED A SCHOOL

DISTRICT TO PAY $70,000 FOR

BANNING A VICTORIAN.

THE SPEECH INCLUDED THIS

SENTENCE, "I DON'T LET FEAR

KEEP ME FROM SPREADING HIS

WORD TO THOSE AROUND ME."

A LOWER COURT SIDED WITH THE

SCHOOL DISTRICT, BUT THE

MONTANA SUPREME COURT RULED

6-1 THAT GRIFFITH'S FREE

SPEECH RIGHTS WERE

VIOLATED.

IT IS RARE FOR EARTHQUAKES

TO STRIKE THE EAST COAST,

BUT A MAGNITUDE 4.0 QUAKE

HIT NEAR PORTLAND,

MAINE, AND IT CAUGHT A LOT

OF FOLKS BY SURPRISE.

I FIGURED IT WAS JUST

ME.

YOU'RE TELLING ME IT WAS NOT

JUST ME?

Reporter: HERE IS THE

PROOF IT WAS NOT JUST HIM.

THE SEISMOGRAPH READING

SHOWING THE 4.0 EARTHQUAKE

THAT HIT SOUTHERN MAINE.

THE EPICENTER WAS ABOUT

THREE MILES WEST OF HOLLIS

CENTER, MAINE, ABOUT

20 MILES WEST OF PORTLAND.

MY BED WAS SHAKING BACK

AND FORTH, AND I WASN'T

QUITE SURE WHAT IT WAS.

HONESTLY, I THOUGHT THEY

WERE DOING CONSTRUCTION

ACROSS THE STREET.

4.0 MEANS THIS IS THE

LARGEST EARTHQUAKE SINCE

2006, WHEN WE HAD A 4.2

EARTHQUAKE AT BAR HARBOR,

MAINE.

I FELT DIZZY.

Reporter: RESIDENTS AS

FAR SOUTH AS RHODE ISLAND

AND CONNECTICUT FELT THE

EARTHQUAKE.

THERE ARE NO REPORTS OF

AFTERSHOCKS, SERIOUS DAMAGE

OR INJURIES.

IT VIBRATED MY COUCH.

IT FELT LIKE SOMETHING WAS

BEHIND MY SOUTH.

IN EASTERN UNITED STATES,

EARTHQUAKES ARE FELT OVER A

MUCH BIGGER AREA THAN THEY

ARE IN WESTERN UNITED

STATES, OUT IN CALIFORNIA.

BECAUSE THE CRUST IS

DIFFERENT.

THE CRUST IS COLDER.

THE CRUST IS THINNER.

SO WHEN EARTHQUAKES OCCUR,

THE EFFECTS ARE TRANSMITTED

MUCH GREATER DISTANCESMENT.

Reporter: RESIDENTS IN

NEW ENGLAND GOT A HEAD START

ON A WORLDWIDE EARTHQUAKE

DRILL COMING UP THIS WEEK.

MORE THAN 14 MILLION PEOPLE

AROUND THE GLOBE ARE

SCHEDULED TO TAKE PART IN

THE GREAT SHAKEOUT DRILL,

WHICH HELPS FOLKS PRACTICE

HOW TO STAY SAFE DURING

EARTHQUAKE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Lee: MARK SHOWED US A

VIEW OF THE PRUDENTIAL

BUILDING IN DOWNTOWN

BOSTON.

I WOULD NOT WANT TO BE ON

THE TOP OF THAT BUILDING

WHEN THAT THING HIT.

Pat: THAT THING IS A

MESS.

THE WINDOWS POPPED OUT

BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T ACCOUNT

FOR ALL OF THE WIND CAUSED

BY THE CANYONS.

SO IT HAS BEEN SUBJECT TO

SOME DIFFICULTIES.

WE HAD A BIG ONE, LEE, YOU

REMEMBER HERE IN VIRGINIA.

AND THAT THING WAS A

MONSTER.

IT CRACKED THE WASHINGTON

MONUMENT.

Kristi: ARE YOU TALKING

ABOUT THE ONE LAST YEAR?

Pat: YES.

Kristi: DO YOU REMEMBER

IT?

Pat: YES.

Kristi: I WAS SITTING

IN STARBUCKS, AND EVERYTHING

WAS SHAKING AND BAKING.

I THOUGHT JESUS WAS COMING

BACK.

AND I SAID, THE EARTH IS

MOVING.

Pat: I PAID BIG BUCKS

FOR THAT LATTE.

IT WAS A MONSTER AND IT HAD

REPERCUSSIONSS

ALL THE WAY THROUGH

MONTANA.

READ THE 24th CHAPTER OF

THE PROPHET ISAIAH, AND HE

TALKS ABOUT THE EARTH

SHAKING LIKE A SHACK, AND

JESUS SAID THERE WILL BE

EARTHQUAKES IN MANY PLACES.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT HAPPEN.

THIS EARTH WE'RE ON FLOATS,

AND WHEN IT MOVES, IT

SHAKES.

Kristi: WE'VE GOT TO

GET OUR LIFE RIGHT BECAUSE

TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISED.

Pat: HERE IS WHAT IS

SHAKING, TOO, PEOPLE ARE

SHAKING WITH OBESITY.

Lee: BEING OBESE CAN

CAUSE CANCER CELLS TO GROW

FASTER.

RESEARCHERS DID A STUDY ON

MICE, AND THEY FIND THAT

TUMORS BASICALLY RECRUIT

STEM CELLS WHEN THEY NEED

MORE NOURISHMENT.

THERE WERE MORE THAN A

BILLION OBESE ADULTS

WORLDWIDE IN 2008, AND BY

SOME ESTIMATES, MORE THAN

HALF AMERICANS WILL BE OBESE

IN FOUR YEARS.

THIS IS JUST AN INCENTIVE

FOR US TO KEEP OUR EYE ON

OUR WEIGHT.

Pat: SOMETHING HAS

HAPPENED TO ME.

I HAVE LOST MY APPETITE.

YESTERDAY I DIDN'T EAT ANY

BREAKFAST.

I CAME TO THE SHOW AND I

DIDN'T HAVE ANY BREAKFAST.

Kristi: I NEVER HAVE

ANY PROBLEM.

I LOVE FOOD.

LOVE IT!

Pat: YOU STAY SO SLIM

AND TRIM.

Kristi: BECAUSE I

ALWAYS SUCK IT IN.

Pat: YOU RUN AND DO ALL

KINDS OF EXERCISES, AND YOU

CHASE YOUR LITTLE BOY AROUND

THE HOUSE.

Kristi: THAT IS

ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

WE'RE GOING TO SWITCH

GEARS.

UP NEXT, A SHOWDOWN IN THE

LONE STAR STATE.

SEE HOW DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS ARE PULLING OUT

THE BIG GUNS.

WHY?

TO ROUND UP THE LATINO

VOTES, AFTER THIS.

Pat: OKAY, THEY'RE

GROWING PAST.

IT IS THE FASTEST SUB SET IN

OUR POPULATION, HISPANICS OR

LATINOS, DEPENDING ON WHICH

NAME YOU WANT TO GIVE.

BUT PEOPLE OF SPANISH

ANCESTRY, AND PEOPLE WHO

COME FROM MEXICO OR SOUTH

AMERICA, A WONDERFUL GROUP

OF PEOPLE.

AND THE BIG STORY IN TEXAS

THIS YEAR ISN'T THE BATTLE

FOR THE WHITE HOUSE.

IT IS THE FIGHT FOR THE

GROWING NUMBER OF HISPANIC

VOTERS.

TODAY THERE ARE NEARLY AS

MANY HISPANICS IN THE LONE

STAR STATES AS ANGLOS.

AND AS HEATHER CELLS

REPORTS, THAT COULD HAVE AN

ENORMOUS IMPACT ON THE

FUTURE OF AMERICAN

POLITICS.

Reporter: THE FACE OF

TEXAS THIS YEAR AT THE

NATIONAL CONVENTION IS

LATINO.

IT WAS SENATE CANDIDATE TED

CRUZ, AND FOR THE DEMOCRATS,

MAYOR JULIO CASTRO.

A MONTH LATER, ANOTHER

REVEALING SIGN.

[ SPEAKING SPANISH ]

Reporter: THE NATION'S

FIRST CONGRESSIONAL DEBATE

IN SPANISH.

THE LOCATION, SAN ANTONIO

23rd DISTRICT, A

BATTLEGROUND FOR BOTH

PARTIES.

THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW

DISTRICTS THAT IS GOING TO

MAKE OR BREAK EACH PARTY.

Reporter: THE MAJORITY

POPULATION IS HISPANIC, AND

THEY SAY TEXAS WILL SOON BE

AS WELL.

ALREADY HISPANICS MAKE UP

38% OF THE STATE, RIGHT

BEHIND WHITES AT 45%.

BY 2040, LATINOS ARE POSED

TO BECOME THE MAJORITY

POPULATION HERE IN TEXAS.

WHAT THAT MEANS FOR BOTH

POLITICAL PARTIES IS A

NO-FAIL STRATEGY TO WIN OVER

THIS EMERGING FORCE.

IT IS MATTER A

PARTICIPATING MORE THAN THAN

EVER.

Reporter: MANUEL MADINA

IS THE SAN ANTONIO PARTY.

HE VIEWS LATINOS AS A

RELIABLE BASE.

BUT THIS VOTING BLOCK HAS

ITS ISSUES.

PROBLEM NUMBER ONE, MANY

HISPANICS CANNOT CAST A

BALLOT AND WON'T BE ABLE TO

FOR YEARS.

SO POLITICAL ANALYSTS LIKE

MARK LOPEZ SAY THEY'RE FULL

POLITICAL POWER WON'T BE

REALIZED FOR SEVERAL

DECADES.

NOT EVERY HISPANIC CAN

VOTE.

IN FACT, ONLY ABOUT 42% OF

HISPANICS ARE EITHER 180ñ

YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER AND

ALSO A U.S. CITIZEN.

Reporter: AND PROBLEM

NUMBER TWO, MANY REGISTERED

HISPANIC VOTERS SIMPLY DO

NOT TURN OUT TO VOTE.

BUT IN TEXAS, THE RACE IS ON

TO WIN OVER THIS GROUP,

SIMPLY BECAUSE OF GROWING

NUMBERS AND WHAT THE STATE

NOW CONTROLS, FOUR U.S.

HOUSE SEATS FOR A TOTAL OF

36, AND FOUR NEW ELECTORAL

VOTES FOR A TOTAL OF 38.

THAT ALL GIVES THE LONE STAR

STATE A LARGE SAY IN

NATIONAL POLITICS, AND IT

GIVES TEXAS LATINOS SOME

SERIOUS LEVERAGE.

IN SAN ANTONIO, THE FUTURE

IS ALREADY HERE.

LATINOS MAKE UP 63% OF THE

POPULATION.

AND THEIR POLITICAL POWER IS

EVIDENT ON WHAT SEEMS LIKE

EVERY CAMPAIGN SIGN AROUND

TOWN.

SAN ANTONIO HOUSE A PROUD

DEMOCRATIC PARTY HERITAGE,

STARTING WITH THE FIRST

MEXICAN-AMERICAN

CONGRESSMAN, HENRY

DIGONZOLEZ AND CONTINUING

WITH THEIR MAYOR, JULIO

CASTRO.

BUT THE REPUBLICANS HAVE

BEGUN A STRATEGY THE

DEMOCRATS MAY WANT TO

EMBRACE.

Reporter: DAVID ROSES

IS THE DAVID IN THE DAVID

AND GOLIATH.

ROSA POINTS OUT MANY

HISPANICS ARE NATURAL

CONSERVATIVES, AND HE

BELIEVES THE G.O.P. CAN MAKE

ADVANCES HERE.

DO I BELIEVE THAT THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY WILL GROW?

YES.

BECAUSE HERE WE ARE.

WE'RE CALLING OURSELVES THE

SUPER 8.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

CAUGHT UP WITH THE SUPER 8

AT THE RECENT GATHERING OF

THE ALAMO PACHYDERM CLUB.

THEY ARE EIGHT REPUBLICANS

IN BEAR COUNTY AND THEY'RE

HISTORIC.

THE BEST WAY FOR THE

G.O.P. TO REACH OUT TO

HISPANICS IN BEAR COUNTY IS

TO DO EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE

DOING, AND THAT IS SUCH

SEARCH OUT, IDENTIFY

CANDIDATES LIKE MYSELF, WHO

ARE WILLING TO RESTORE THE

FOCUS ON THE REPUBLICAN

VALUES, WHILE AT THE SAME

TIME, BEING OPEN ABOUT OUR

HERITAGE.

Reporter: THESE

CANDIDATES ARGUE THAT MANY

HISPANICS ARE ALREADY

ALIGNED WITH THE G.O.P.,

THEY JUST DON'T KNOW IT.

WHEN GOD IS BOOED AT THE

DEMOCRAT AND NATIONAL

CONVENTION, WHEN THEY TALK

ABOUT ABORTION ON DEMAND AT

THE DEMOCRAT CONVENTION,

THOSE ARE NOT HISPANIC

VALUES.

Reporter: BUT IN A CITY

WHERE DEMOCRATIC ROOTS RUN

DEEP, WILL HISPANICS BEGIN

TO SHED THEIR TRADITIONAL

POSITIONS?

DEMOCRATS HAVE THEIR

DOUBTS.

WHILE HALF THEIR

LEADERSHIP SAYS THEY'RE

REACHING OUT TO HISPANIC

COMMUNITIES, THE OTHER HALF,

MORE OF THE TEA PARTY

MOVEMENT HALF, IS TRYING TO

CLOSE DOORS.

Reporter: BUT TEXAS

G.O.P. LEADERSHIP IS

BEGINNING TO TALK THE TALK.

AND IF DAVID ROSA'S CAMPAIGN

IS ANY INDICATION, MANY񍍍

GRASS ROOT TEXAS REPUBLICANS

ARE WILLING AND EAGER TO

REACH A CONSTITUENT

CONSTITUENCY THAT BOTH SIDES

REALIZE IS THE MAKE OR BREAK

REPORTING BLOCK IN THE

FUTURE.

REPORTING IN SAN ANTONIO,

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: KRISTI, I WANT YOU

TO KNOW YOU'RE STANDING NEXT

TO THE HONORARY ALCADE OF

SAN ANTONIO.

Kristi: AND WHAT DOES

THAT MEAN?

Pat: IT USED TO BE THE

MAYOR.

IT'S A SPANISH TERM.

THE OTHER IS PETRON.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE

HAVE 223,000 PEOPLE WHO SAID

THEY'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING.

IT IS A TREMENDOUS,

TREMENDOUS GATHERING OF

PRAYER.

SOMEBODY SAYS WE WANT TO

PRAY FOR INCREASED

PROSPERITY AND TO SEND THE

GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.

AND ONE SAYS WE WOULD HUMBLE

OURSELVES AND PRAY FOR

FORGIVENESS.

Kristi: AND I HAVE ONE

THAT SAYS OUR NATION

CONTINUES TO SUPPORT ISRAEL

AND AN END TO SENSELESS

KILLING.

LISTEN, TIME IS RUNNING OUT,

BUT WE'VE GOT A LITTLE OVER

TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE

ELECTION HAPPENS.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO SEND IN

YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS, LIKE

THE ONES THAT PAT AND I JUST

READ.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON

TO cbn.com OR CALL

1-800-759-0700.

AND I WANT TO REMIND

EVERYBODY ABOUT THE "STEPS

TO REVIVAL" BOOK.

"STEPS FOR REVIVAL IN

AMERICA."

Pat: FOLKS, WE'VE BEEN

PRAYING EVERY DAY.

I TELL YOU WHAT, GOD HEARS

THE PRAYERS OF THIS PEOPLE.

Kristi: HE DOES.

Pat: IT IS NOT JUST A

USELESS EXERCISE.

223,000 OF YOU HAVE SAID YOU

WILL PRAY.

THAT'S A GREAT ARMY.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER, AND WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY.

REMEMBER, IF THERE WERE JUST

10 RIGHTEOUS, GOD WILL SAVE

THE CITY.

LET'S JOIN HANDS AND PRAY.

FATHER, WE PRAY FOR THIS

GREAT NATION, AND WE ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS FOR

WE HAVE SINNED AGAINST YOU,

LORD.

BUT, LORD, YOU LOVE THIS

NATION.

AND WE PRAY NOW FOR GODLY

LEADERS, THAT YOU WOULD LEAD

US IN A PATH OF

RIGHTEOUSNESS, THAT WE MIGHT

AGAIN BE THAT CITY ON THE

HILL THAT WOULD BE A BEACON

OF HOPE TO THE NATIONS OF

THE WORLD.

THAT WE MIGHT BE ONE NATION

UNDER GOD.

UNITE, LORD, AS A PEOPLE,

AND BLESS THIS LAND.

WE PRAY BY YOUR ANOINTING IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Kristi: AMEN.

Pat: WELL, UP NEXT,

AMERICA'S NUMBER ONE

NIGHTTIME RADIO HOST.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF HER

BEFORE?

Kristi: SURE YOU HAVE.

Pat: HER NAME IS

DELILAH, AND SHE HAS A WHOLE

BUNCH OF KIDS.

WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THAT

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Lee: UP NEXT, THE VOICE

OF ENCOURAGEMENT.

HI, GOOD EVENING.

YOU'VE CALLED THE DELILAH

SHOW.

Lee: FOR MORE THAN

EIGHT MILLION LISTENERS.

WHO IS THIS?

Lee: AND THE QUEEN OF

SAPPY LOVE SONGS.

DELILAH JOINS US LIVE, JUST

AHEAD.

Kristi: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

SHE IS THE MOTHER OF 13

CHILDREN AND THE QUEEN OF

SAPPY LOVE SONGS WE ALL

LOVE.

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT, RADIO

LISTENERS SEND IN THEIR

REQUESTS, AND DELILAH SPINS

HER MUSICAL MAGIC.

HI, GOOD EVENING.

YOU'VE CALLED THE DELILAH

SHOW.

WHO IS THIS?

Reporter: SHE IS

AMERICA'S NUMBER ONE

NIGHTTIME RADIO HOST.

MORE THAN EIGHT MILLION

LISTENERS TUNE IN EACH

EVENING TO HEAR HER RADIO

PROGRAM, SIMPLY CALLED

DELILAH.

HER UNMISTAKABLE VOICE HAS

FILLED THE AIRWAVES FOR MORE

THAN 25 YEARS, BRINGING

ENCOURAGEMENT AND ADVICE TO

HER LOYAL LISTENERS.

TO ME, I DON'T HAVE IT

WITHIN ME TO KEEP A POSITIVE

ATTITUDE OR KEEP THINGS

GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

WHEN THEY'RE NOT.

THAT'S WHY MY FAITH IN GOD

IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME AND

GIVES ME SO MUCH JOY.

DEFINITELY.

AND SO MUCH HOPE.

Reporter: THE DELILAH

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS THE STRENGTH

OF FAMILY LOVE AND

FRIENDSHIPS, AN AREA SHE CAN

RELATE TO AS A SINGLE MOM OF

13 CHILDREN, 10 OF WHOM ARE

ADOPTED.

IN HER NEW BOOK, "ARMS FULL

OF LOVE," DELILAH CELEBRATES

THE GIFT OF FAMILY WITH

STORIES FROM HER LISTENERS

AND FROM HER OWN LIFE.

Kristi: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," DELILAH.

THANK YOU.

Kristi: THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

I'M SURE EVERYONE LOVES TO

PUT A FACE BEHIND A SCROIS.

VOICE.

AND SO NOW WE SEE YOU.

AND EVERYBODY THINKS I

DON'T REALLY LOOK LIKE WHAT

I SOUND LIKE.

Kristi: REALLY.

THEY THINK I LOOK LIKE

YOU.

Kristi: SO THEY THINK

YOU'RE A BLACK GIRL?

SOMETHING WITH THAT DARK

SKIN.

AND THEY ALL THINK I'M

PETITE.

AND THEN THEY SEE I'M A 5'

10" BLONDE AND THEY SAY, YOU

DON'T LOOK LIKE YOU SOUND.

Kristi: BUT YOUR VOICE

IS EXTRAORDINARY.

AND THE TIMES I'VE HEARD

YOU, YOU'RE SO SOOTHING.

WE COULD TALK ABOUT RADIO --

I KEEP WANTING TO SAY

TELEVISION -- FOR OVER 25,

30 YEARS -- SINCE SEVENTH

GRADE.

38 YEARS, ACTUALLY.@

Kristi: 38?

@@ I WAS TWO.

Kristi: THERE YOU GO.

WHAT MAKES YOU

EXTRAORDINARY, I THINK, A

MOTHER OF 13.

A SINGLE MOTHER OF 13.

GIRL, AND YOU'RE STILL

SMILING.

I AM A SINGLE MOTHER OF ONE

AND I CAN'T EVEN PLAY THE

VIOLIN FOR MYSELF ANYMORE.

SO HELP ME UNDERSTAND HOW

YOU'RE ABLE TO BALANCE WORK

AND MOTHERHOOD?

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS

BALANCE.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS

BALANCE.

I HAVE SEVEN THAT ARE HOME

NOW.

MY OLDEST IS 33, AND THE

YOUNGEST IS A LITTLE GIRL

THAT I JUST ADOPTED THAT IS

THREE.

SO I'VE BEEN DOING THIS A

LONG TIME.

OVER THE YEARS YOU LEARN

THAT YOU CAN'T SWEAT THE

SMALL STUFF.

YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO

PRIORITIZE.

AND WHEN YOU REALIZE WHAT

REALLY MATTERS, 90% OF THE

STUFF THAT WE FUSS ABOUT

DOESN'T MATTER.

WHEN YOU FOCUS ON WHAT

REALLY MATTERS AND PUT YOUR

ENERGY IN THOSE THING, THEN

IT WORKS.

IT'S WHEN YOU START FUSSING

AND FRETTING ABOUT STUFF

THAT HAS NO CONSEQUENCES, NO

ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES

WHATSOEVER, THAT YOU GET

DISTRACTED AND EXHAUSTED AND

WARN DOWN AND IT ALL BLOWS

UP.

Kristi: LET'S TALK

ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD.÷

OBVIOUSLY TO BE A SINGLE

MOTHER OF 13 CHILDREN, YOU

HAVE TO HAVE --

AMAZING GRACE AND AMAZING

FAITH.

Kristi: WHEN DID YOU

FIRST COME TO KNOW THE

LORD.

MY MAIDEN NAME IS LUKE,

AND MY PARENTS NAMED MY

OLDER BROTHERS, MATTHEW,

MARK, AND LUKE.

NOT BECAUSE THEY HAD A

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD,

BUT THEY THOUGHT THAT WOULD

BE FUNNY.

AND THEY COUNTER-BALANCED

THAT AND NAMED MY DELILAH.

AND I PRETTY MUCH LIVED UP

TO MY NAME FOR THE 13 YEARS

OF MY LIFE.

I WAS KIND OF A WILD CHILD.

Kristi: OKAY.

SO WHEN DID IT SWITCH?

IT SWITCHED WHEN I LOST

MY BROTHER, AND HIS WIFE,

ANN.

HE WAS AN OFFICER IN THE AIR

FORCE, AND HE HAD FLOWN UP

TO CALIFORNIA TO SIGN

DOCUMENTS TO BE GOD PARENTS

FOR MY SON.

AND HE AND HIS WIFE WENT

DOWN IN A HORRIBLE STORM.

AND WE DID NOT FIND THE

WRECKAGE FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

SO HE JUST DISAPPEARED.

AND IT WAS THROUGH LOSING

HIM I FOUND GOD.

BECAUSE MATT HAD BECOME A

CHRISTIAN WHEN HE MET HIS

GIRL.

HE MET THIS BEAUTIFUL GIRL

IN A MUSIC CLASS.

AND SHE SAID I CANNOT GO OUT

WITH YOU.

AND HE SAID WHY?

AND SHE SAID BECAUSE I'M A

CHRISTIAN, AND I'M WAITINGúñúñ

FOR GOD TO FIX ME UP.úñúñ

AND HE SAID, WHERE DO I SIGN

UP.

AND WE THOUGHT HE WAS

CRAZY.

THAT'S JUST INSANE.

AND MY PARENTS AND MYSELF

AND THE OTHER SIBLINGS ALL

DECIDED THAT HE WAS CRAZY,

THAT HE HAD BEEN BRAINWASHED

AND SUCKED INTO A VORTEX,

AND WE WAITED FOR MY BROTHER

TO COME BACK AND STOP THIS

CRAZINESS, AND INSTEAD HE

MARRIED HER.

AND THEY HAD A MUSICAL

MINISTRY TOGETHER.

AND SO HE USED TO TRY TO

PREACH TO ME ABOUT JESUS.

AND I WOULD JUST BE LIKE --

AND I WOULD BE, LIKE, THATxx

DOES NOT SOUND LIKE FUN ATXx

ALL.

I AM HAVING FUN, CAN'T YOU

SEE.

AND ONE TIME HE CAME TO MY

APARTMENT, AND I WAS GOING

THROUGH A REALLY TOUGH TIME,

AND HE SAID, SIS, YOU NEED

THE LORD.

AND I'M, LIKE, YOU NEED TO

SHUT UP.÷

THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANT TO

HEAR.

Kristi: WHEN DID THAT

WORD BECOME TRUTH?

WHEN HE DIED, I NEEDED TO

KNOW I WOULD SEE HIM AGAIN.

SO I WENT ON A SPIRITUAL

QUEST.

AND I LOVE TO READ.

AND I NEED TO KNOW THE

FACTS.

I TRIED THIS AND I TRIED

THAT, AND I STARTED READING

AND READING AND READING.

AND THE MORE I READ, THE

MORE I REALIZED WHAT HE SAID

WAS TRUE.

ONCE YOU START

INVESTIGATING -- IF YOU'VE

GOT A BRAIN AND YOU'RE LIKE

ME, WHERE I NEED FACTS, YOU

START INVESTIGATING AND

DIGGING INTO THE GOSPEL AND

FINDING THINGS OUT, YOU

REALIZE THAT IT IS TRUE.

THAT JESUS CHRIST WAS THE

MESSIAH, HE IS THE MESSIAH.

AND ONCE I CAME TO BELIEVE

THAT, I THOUGHT IF THAT IS

TRUE, THEN THE REST OF IT

HAS GOT TO BE TRUE.

AND A COUPLE -- PROBABLY

ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF

AFTER MATT DIED, I WAS AT A

DESPERATE POINT IN MY LIFE

WHERE I HAD LOST ALL HOPE.

MY HUSBAND HAD LEFT ME.

I HAD A BABY.

I LOST MY JOB.

MY BROTHER WAS MISSING.

MY FAMILY HAD DISOWNED ME.

AND I JUST CRIED OUT, GOD, I

CAN'T GO ON.

I'M GOING TO DIE IF YOU

DON'T TELL ME IF YOU'RE

REAL.XX

I NEED TO KNOW.XX

THE NEXT DAY I WAS AT THEXX

MARKET, AND I SAW A LITTLE

PIECE OF PAPER, LIKE THIS

COLOR, RED, ON MY CAR.

AND I THOUGHT I GOT A

TICKET.

AND WHEN I GOT CLOSE TO THE

CAR, I SAW IT WAS A BIBLE.

AND SOMEONE HAD WRITTEN ON

THIS TINY TESTAMENT, JESUS

LOVES YOU.

AND THAT WAS IT.

THAT WAS THE MOMENT.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT,

DELILAH.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

SHARING THAT STORY.

YOU HAVE TAKEN THAT LOVE OF

THE LORD, THAT JESUS LOVES

YOU, EVEN OUT THROUGH THE

RADIO, TO YOUR LISTENERS.

SO YOU'RE VERY CANDID BY

TALKING ABOUT THE LORD.

DO YOU GET ANY PUSH BACK?

CONSTANTLY.

Kristi: WHAT DO THEY

SAY TO YOU?

IT IS NOT POLITICALLY

CORRECT TO CONFESS YOUR

FAITH IN THE LORD.

I HAD A PROGRAM DIRECTOR

TELL ME ONE TIME, WE WANT

YOU TO SAY POSITIVE THINGS,

BUT WE WANT YOU TO SAY YOU

HAVE IT WITHIN YOU TO FIND

THIS ANSWER.

I SAID, THAT'S A LIE.

THE STUFF IN ME FINDS ALL OF

THE WRONG ANSWERS.

NO, NO, BUT WE WANT YOU TO

SAY ON THE AIR TO PEOPLE,

WELL, IF YOU JUST THINK

ABOUT IT, YOU'LL FIND THE

SOLUTION.

AND I'M, LIKE, WELL THAT'S A

LIE.

AND SO THEY FIRED ME.

Kristi: BUT GOD IS A

GOD OF REDEMPTION.

THEY MAY HAVE FIRED YOU, BUT

LOOK AT YOU NOW.

HOW MANY VIEWERS -- HOW MANY

LISTENERS -- I KEEP WANTING

TO SAY VIEWERS.

HOW MANY LISTENERS DO YOU

HAVE?

A LOT.

Kristi: THAT'S GOOD.

WE TALKED ABOUT YOUR 13

KIDS.

YOU ARE A WOMAN OF HOPE, AND

I'M ALL ABOUT HOPE.

YOU HAVE A FOUNDATION

CALLED -- WHAT IS IT

CALLED?

POINT HOPE IS OUR

MINISTRY.

WE ENDEAVOR TO BE A VOICE

FOR FORGOTTEN CHILDREN.

100% OF THE PROCEEDS FROM

THE BOOK, "ARMS FULL OF

LOVE," 100% GO TO POINT HOPE

TO FUND THE WORK WE DO.

HERE IN AMERICA, WE WORK

TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO

ADOPT FOSTER KIDS OUT OF

FOSTER CARE.

AND INTERNATIONALLY WE WORK

IN GHANA WITH WEST

AFRICAN ORPHANAGES.÷

WE TAKE CARE OF A LOT OFxx

CHILDREN.

Kristi:xx DELILAH, I KNOWxx

THIS ISN'T POLITICALLY

CORRECT, BUT YOU ARE THE

BOMB.

THANK YOU.

Kristi: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US.

YOU CAN LISTEN TO DELILAH,

JUST TURN ON THE RADIO AT

THE NIGHTTIME.

WE HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW WITH HER ON OUR

WEBSITE, JUST LOG ON TO CBN

NEWS, AND CLICK ON "IN THE

GREEN ROOM."

AND HER NEW BOOK, HERE WE

GO, IT'S CALLED "ARMS FULLúñúñ

OF LOVE."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WHATx

YOU DO.xx

AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

TAKING CARE OF THOSE KIDS,

FOR LOVING THEM, FOR

REACHING OUT TO THEM AND

BEING THEIR MOMMY.

GOD BLESS YOU.

PAT, OVER TO YOU -- OH, NO.

IT'S ME.

FORGET ABOUT IT.

COMING UP LATER, HE IS ONE

OF THE HIGHEST PAID

RUNNINGBACKS IN THE NFL.

FOOTBALL IS JUST A WAY

FOR ME TO GRAB THEIR

ATTENTION.

Kristi: STEVEN JACKSON

TALKS ABOUT HIS FAITH ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

MINNEAPOLIS VOTERS WILL

DECIDE ON A STATE

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO

DEFINE MARRIAGE AS BETWEEN

ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN.

RELIGIOUS LEADERS ARE

SPEAKING OUT ON BOTH SIDES

OF THE ISSUE.

SOME GATHERED TO PROTEST THE

AMENDMENT TUESDAY.

THEY SAY IT LIMITS BASIC

RIGHTS AND VIOLATES THEIR

BELIEF IN LOVE AND

ACCEPTANCE.

CATHOLIC, MUSLIM, MORMON AND

EVANGELICAL LEADERS RALLIED

IN SUPPORT OF THE AMEND.

THIS IS NOT A NEW

POSITION FOR US AS

CATHOLICS.

IT IS REALLY AT THE CORE OF

WHAT WE BELIEVE ABOUT

MARRIAGE.

AND SO WE'RE DESCENDING WHAT

HAS BEEN A TRUTH OF OUR

FAITH.

Lee: POLLS SHOW

MINNEAPOLIS VOTERS ARE SPLIT

ON THE MARRIAGE AMENDMENT.

IT NEEDS MORE THAN 50% TO

PASS.

THE QUEEN ELIZABETH HOSPITAL

IS TIGHTENING SECURITY AFTER

TWO PEOPLE TRIED TO GET IN

TO SEE AN INJURED PAKISTANI

GIRL.

TWO MEN WERE QUESTIONED AND

TURNED AWAY.

MALALA WAS TURNED AWAY BY

THE TALIBAN IN PAKISTAN FOR

PROMOTING GIRLS' EDUCATION

AND CRITICIZING THE MILITANT

GROUP.

THEY SAY THE GIRL IS IN

STABLE CONDITION AND SHE HAS

A GOOD CHANCE TO MAKE A

SOLID RECOVERY.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND KRISTI

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Pat: WELL, PROFESSIONAL

FOOTBALL IS A GAME OF UPS

AND DOWNS.

SOME ARE ON TOP, AND THEN

THEY WIND UP ON THE BOTTOM.

AND FOR THE ST. LOUIS RAMS,

THERE APPARENTLY IS NOWHERE

TO GO BUT UP.

FOR SEVEN SEASONS, THE TEAM

HAS BEEN STRUGGLING TO

RETURN TO THE PLAYOFFS.

AND THEY'RE COUNTING ON

RUNNINGBACK STEVEN JACKSON

TO HELP THEM GET THERE.

Reporter: STEVEN

JACKSON IS ONE OF THE MOST

PRODUCTIVE RUNNINGBACKS IN

THE NFL.

IN EACH OF THE LAST SEVEN

SEASONS, HE HAS RUSHED FOR

OVER A THOUSAND YARDS,

MAKING HIM THE ST. LOUIS

RAMS' ALL TIME LARGEST

RUSHER.

RUSHER.

HE ADMITS PLAYING FOR A

LOSING TEAM HAS BEEN

FRUSTRATING, BUT TO HIM THE

GAME MEANS MORE THAN JUST

WINS AND LOSSES.

EVEN AT THAT POINT, IT

WAS ALWAYS AN ASSOCIATION OF

CHRIST, SPORTS, AND

EDUCATION, HAS BEEN THROUGH

AND THROUGH MY ENTIRE LIFE.

Reporter: STEVEN BECAME

A CHRISTIAN AT AN EARLY

AGE.

IT WAS SO MUCH A PART OF

MY LIFE, SO MUCH EMBEDDED IN

ME.

AND I WATCHED MY MOM AND

DAD, THROUGH THICK AND THIN,

EVERY NIGHT AND EVERY

MORNING I SAW THEM GET ON

THEIR KNEES AND PRAY TO

GOD.

IT IS A PART OF MY LIFE THAT

I UNDERSTOOD WAS EVENTUALLY

GOING TO BE MY LIFE, TOO.

Reporter: YOU GREW UP

IN LAS VEGAS?

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DO NOT

ASSOCIATE CHRISTIANS AND SIN

CITY TOGETHER, BUT WE HAVE A

DYNAMIC PART OF THE TOWN

THAT IS VERY MUCH LIVING BY

CHRIST AND THRIVING IN

CHRIST.

Reporter: WHEN STEVEN

STARTED PLAYING FOOTBALL,

THERE WAS ONLY POSITION

COACHES ALLOWED HIM TO PLAY

BECAUSE OF HIS SIZE.

I ALWAYS PLAYED

RUNNINGBACK.

UNTIL I WAS 16 YEARS OLD, I

WAS ALWAYS THE SMALLEST GUY

ON THE TEAM.

SO BEING A RUNNINGBACK WAS

ALMOST NATURAL.

WHERE DO YOU PUT THE LITTLE

GUY?

Reporter: STEVEN

CONTINUED TO HONE THIS

SKILLS ALL THE WAY TO HIGH

SCHOOL, WHERE HIS TEAM FELL

SHORT OF THE STATE

CHAMPIONSHIP.

I REMEMBER I WAS CRYING.

AND AS WE WALKED OFF THE

FIELD -- ALTHOUGH WE WERE A

GOOD TIME, I WAS THE ONLY

ONE THE COLLEGE THOUGHT WAS

DIVISION 1 WORTHY.

SO WHEN WE WALKED OFF THE

FIELD, MY FRIENDS AND

TEAMMATES CREATED A SMALL

PATH AND APPLAUDED ME.

THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED HOW

POWERFUL THE GIFT WAS IN THE

GAME OF FOOTBALL.

WHAT KIND OF INFLUENCE I

HAD.

Reporter: STEVEN

ACCEPTED AN OFFER TO PLAY

FOR OREGON STATE.

IT WAS THERE HE BEGAN TO

STRUGGLE WITH HIS FAITH.

WHEN I GOT OFF TO

COLLEGE, I WAS TRYING TO

FIND OUT WHO I WAS AS A

MAN.

A LOT OF PARTYING.

Reporter: HE FOUND OUT

VERY QUICKLY THE PARTY LIFE

WASN'T FOR HIM.

IT WAS TRYING TO PLEASE

TWO WORLDS.

YOU GO OUT AND THURSDAY AND

FRIDAY NIGHT, AND YOU WANT

TO BE A PART OF THE TEAM AND

TEAM FUNCTIONS.

SOMETIMES ALL OF IT IS NOT

GOOD.

Reporter: SO STEVEN

DECIDED TO MAKE AN

ADJUSTMENT.

HE CHOSE TO LIVE LIFE AS A

CHRISTIAN, AND CHOSE GOD

OVER HIS CAREER.

HE WAS RANKED SECOND AND

DECIDED TO ENTER THE 2004

NFL DRAFT.

HE WAS ELECTED 24th

OVERALL BY THE ROOMS.

AND THERE WAS ONE NUMBER HE

HAD TO HAVE ON HIS JERSEY.

I WANTED TO START A NEW

TREND.

I THOUGHT WHAT NUMBER IS NOT

CURRENTLY WORN AS A

RUNNINGBACK.

39 KEPT POPPING UP.

AND I CALLED MY DAD, AND I

SAID I THINK I WANT TO

CHANGE MY NUMBER.

WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD

CHANGE IT TO?

AND HE SAID 39.

AND I SAID WHY 39?

AND HE SAID BECAUSE OF THE

TESTAMENT.

Reporter: WITH THAT

BADGE OF COURAGE ON HIS

CHEST AND NINE SEASONS IN

THE NFL, HIS GOAL HAS NEVER

CHANGED.

I ALWAYS SAY WITH EVERY

CITY I STOP IN, I WANT TO

LEAVE A POSITIVE IMPRINT ON

THAT CITY.

FOOTBALL IS JUST A PLATFORM

FOR ME TO GRAB THEIR

ATTENTION.

BUT BEING SUCCESSFUL AND

THEN BEING POSITIVE WITH IT,

YOU INFLUENCE MANY PEOPLE.

Reporter: IF HIS

INFLUENCE ISN'T EVIDENT BY

THE LEGACY HE IS BUILDING ON

THE FIELD, TAKE A LOOK AT

HIS CHARITY, THE STEVEN

JACKSON FOUNDATION, WHERE

ONE OF THE FOCUSES IS

CHILDREN AND COMPATING

ILLITERACY.

I TALK TO NOT ONLY YOUNG

PEOPLE, BUT ADULTS AS WELL,

ABOUT MY FAITH IN CHRIST,

AND HOW TO MOTIVATE THEM

THROUGH HARDSHIP AND ACHIEVE

SUCCESS.

Reporter: THIS YEAR AS

THE RAMS CONTINUE THEIR

BATTLE, STEVEN IS FOCUSED ON

THE NUMBER ONE REASON HE IS

ON THE FIELD.

JESUS CHRIST ACTUALLY

MEANS A LOT OF THINGS TO

ME.

ONE, HE IS MY HEAVEN

FATHER.

HE LOVES ME WHOLEHEARTEDLY,

AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES I

GIVE MYSELF PRESSURE OR WITH

OTHER PEOPLE.

I REMIND MYSELF GOD DIED AND

LAID ON THE CROSS FOR US FOR

OUR SINS SO THAT ONE DAY I

CAN COME TO MEET HIM.

LOVE IS MORE POWERFUL THAN

ANYTHING ON THIS EARTH.

THE MORE I TRY TO WALK IN

THAT, I FIND PEACE IN

MYSELF, IN MY HEART.

Pat: STEVEN HAS GOT IT

RIGHT.

GOD LOVES US.

I CAN SAY IT OVER AND OVER

AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

GOD LOVES YOU.

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY

BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHO SO

EVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL

NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE

EVERLASTING LIFE.

FOR GOD DID NOT SEND HIS SON

INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN

THE WORLD, BUT THAT THE

WORLD, THROUGH HIM, MIGHT BE

SAVED.

JESUS CAME TO REDEEM US.

HE CAME TO TAKE US TO

HEAVEN.

I'LL TELL YOU, WHEN YOU

THINK ABOUT LIFE, ALL THIS

POLITICAL STUFF, AND ALL OF

THE MONEY AND ALL OF THE

STOCK MARKETS AND ALL OF THE

GOLD AND THE SILVER AND ALL

OF THE JOBS AND ALL OF THIS,

WHAT REALLY IS IMPORTANT?

WHAT REALLY IS IMPORTANT IS

WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO SPEND

ETERNITY.

BECAUSE, YOU SEE, THIS LIFE

IS VERY SHORT.

IN LIGHT OF ETERNITY, IT IS

VERY SHORT.

IT IS JUST AGAINST THE SKY.

YOUR HAND AGAINST THE SKY IS

NOTHING.

YOU'RE HERE AND THEN YOU'RE

GONE.

SO WHAT COUNTS IS WHERE

YOU'RE GOING TO SPEND

ETERNITY.

I WANT TO BE IN THE

RESURRECTION.

I WANT TO BE IN HEAVEN.

I WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN WHEN

I DIE.

THAT'S WHAT I WANT.

AND IF YOU'VE GOT ANY SENSE,

THAT'S WHAT YOU'LL WANT.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO TO

HELL.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO INTO

ETERNAL DARKNESS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO BE IN A

LAKE OF FIRE.

WHO NEEDS THAT?

YOU WANT TO BE IN PARADISE

WITH THE LORD.

WELL, HOW DO YOU GET THERE?

YOU GET THERE BY RECEIVING

WHAT JESUS HAS GIVEN YOU

FREELY.

HE DIED, AND IF YOU WILL

POSSESS LIFE FOR YOURSELF,

THAT LIFE WILL COME THROUGH,

BRING YOU FORGETNESS

FORGIVENESS OF SIN, AND TAKE

YOU TO HEAVEN.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS, AND

THAT WHAT YOU WOULD WANT.

IF YOU'D LIKE WHAT I'M

OFFERING YOU, PLEASE PRAY

WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

PRAY THESE WORDS.

DON'T BE ASHAMED.

NOW, JESUS -- SAY IT WITH

ME.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU DIED FOR

ME.

AND, JESUS, I KNOW THAT YOU

ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

AND SO RIGHT NOW I TURN AWAY

FROM SIN.

I TURN AWAY FROM

SELFISHNESS.

I TURN AWAY FROM THAT WHICH

IS GOING TO DESTROY ME.

AND I TURN TO YOU.

AND I SAY, LORD, COME INTO

MY LIFE.

LEAVE -- LIVE YOUR LIFE IN

ME, AND I WILL LIVE FOR YOU

AND I WILL SERVE YOU ALL OF

THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU.

IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER

WITH ME, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING FREE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT'S A PACKET THAT HAS A

C.D., 73 MINUTES OF

COMPRESSED TEACHING ABOUT

WHAT YOU'VE JUST DONE, WHAT

IT MEANS.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BORN

AGAIN.

AND ALSO A LITTLE BOOKLET OF

SCRIPTURES THAT IS TAKEN

FROM THAT TEACHING.

SO IT WILL -- I'LL GIVE IT

TO YOU FREE.

BUT IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME

JUST THEN, I WANT YOU TO GO

TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL IN.

NOW, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO

GIVE US YOUR NAME, THAT'S

FINE.

IT'S NOT GOING TO COST YOU

ANYTHING.

I JUST WANT YOU TO TELL THE

COUNSELLOR ON THE PHONE I

JUST PRAYED WITH PAT.

YOU NEED TO CONFESS WITH

YOUR MOUTH WHAT YOU JUST

DONE, AND BELIEVE IN YOUR

HEART THAT GOD RAISED YOU

FROM THE DEAD.

THERE IT IS.

SO CALL RIGHT NOW,

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, WE CONTINUE WITH THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND HERE IS KRISTI.

Kristi: ABSOLUTELY.

THANK YOU, PAT.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

BRING IT ON WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

DEBBIE BEGINS WITH, "DEAR,

PAT, YOUR MINESTRONE SOUP

SOUNDS DELICIOUS, BUT

DOESN'T WORTSHEAR SAUCE HAVE

M.S. G.IN IT?"

Kristi: WELL, IN

GUATEMALA, MANY PEOPLE CAN'T

AFFORD BASIC HEALTH CARE.

SO FOR ONE FAMILY, A VISIT

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING"

MEANT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

LIFE AND DEATH.

Reporter: 7-YEAR-OLD

IRWIN WANTED TO PLAY LIKE

THE OTHER KIDS.

HE SIMPLY WASN'T ABLE TO.

WHEN I RUN, THE HERNIA

THING GOT EVEN WORSE.

SO I STOPPED PLAYING.

Reporter: IRWIN HAS HAD

THE HERNIA SINCE BIRTH, BUT

ONLY RECENTLY IT HAS GOTTEN

WORSE.

THE PAIN BECAME SO SEVERE

THAT HE HAD TO STOP GOING TO

SCHOOL.

IRWIN'S MOM HAD TO QUIT HER

JOB TO STAY HOME WITH HIM.

IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT

SINCE I QUIT MY JOB.

Reporter: IRWIN'S OLDER

SISTER ALSO QUIT SCHOOL TO

GET A JOB TO SUPPORT THE

FAMILY.

I WANTED TO WORK SO MY

MOM COULD ALWAYS BE HERE

WITH MY LITTLE BROTHER.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED

ABOUT THE PROBLEM, WE

ARRANGED FOR THE YOUNG BOY

TO HAVE SURGERY.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, IRWIN WAS

AS GOOD AS NEW.

THE DOCTORS TOLD ME I'M

ALREADY HEALED AND CAN PLAY

OR JUMP.

THAT'S WHY I AM SO HAPPY.

I GIVE THANKS TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" BECAUSE

THANKS TO YOU, MY SON HAD

THE SURGERY.

MY LITTLE BROTHER IS

HEALED THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING."

NOW HE IS A NEW BOY.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR MY SURGERY.

Kristi: WOW, YOU NOT

ONLY GAVE THAT LITTLE BOY

LIFE, BUT YOU GAVE THAT

ENTIRE FAMILY A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

YOU DID THAT.

YOU DID THAT WHEN YOU BECAME

A "700 CLUB" PARTNER, AND

YOU SAID, YEAH, I'M GOING TO

STAND UP FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T

STAND UP FOR THEMSELVES.

FOR JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH -- CAN YOU PUT A

PRICE, LITERALLY, ON

SOMEONE'S LIFE?

YOU CAN'T, BUT YOU JUST

DID.

YOU JUST GAVE THAT LITTLE

BOY LIFE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

PARTNER, WHY NOT JOIN.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH

IS ALL IT TAKES.

OR YOU CAN DO IT AT

DIFFERENT LEVELS, AND YOU

CAN FIND THAT OUT WHEN YOU

LOG ON TO CBN NEWS.

WHATEVER YOU DO, JUST DO

SOMETHING.

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO

BLESS YOU WITH THIS.

IT'S CALLED "GOD'S PLAN FOR

AMERICA."

THE ELECTION IS IN THE NEXT

TWO PLUS WEEKS AND WE NEED

TO PRAY FOR AMERICA, AND WE

NEED TO DO IT NOW.

Pat: DID YOU WATCH

THIS?

Kristi: OF COURSE I

WATCHED THIS.

I WATCH EVERYTHING YOU DO.

Pat: ARE YOU SURE?

Kristi: EVEN IF I

DIDN'T -- NO, I'M KIDDING.

I WATCHED IT.

Pat: DID YOU LIKE IT?

Kristi: I LIKED IT.

IT TOLD ME SOMETHING ABOUT

AMERICA AND IT CAN TELL YOU

SOMETHING ABOUT AMERICA,

TOO.

Pat: QUESTIONS.

Kristi: WE'RE GOING TO

START OUT WITH DEBBIE WHO

SAYS, "DEAR PAT, YOUR

MINESTRONE SOUP SOUNDS

DELICIOUS.

HOWEVER, DOESN'T

WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE HAVE

M.S.G. IN IT?"

Pat: NOT TO MY

KNOWLEDGE.

MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE --

THERE IS A RESTAURANT CHAIN

THAT HAS DELICIOUS FOOD, AND

THE TROUBLE IS WHEN YOU GET

THROUGH EATING THERE, YOU

GET DIZZY.

Kristi: AND YOU'RE

SAYING THAT WORCESTERSHIRE

SAUCE DO NOT HAVE M.S.G.?

Pat: NOT TO MY

KNOWLEDGE.

HERE IS THE LIST OF THE

INGREDIENTS AND IT SAYS

NOTHING ABOUT M.S.G.

Kristi: NEXT QUESTION,

ARE YOU READY?

Pat: I'M READY.

THIS IS A PITCH.

THIS IS A THANKSGIVING

THING, AND INSIDE IS A

LITTLE THING ABOUT THE

SOUP.

PEOPLE ARE RAVINGG

ABOUT THAT SOUP.

DID YOU TASTE

THE SOUP?

Kristi: NO, I DIDN'T

TASTE THE SOUP.

Pat: YOU DIDN'T?

Kristi: NO ONE MADE IT

FOR ME.

Pat: YOU'RE A

HOUSEWIFE.

YOU CAN MAKE SOME.

Kristi: I WILL MAKE

SOME.

IF YOU WANT THE RECIPE, LOG

ON TO CBN.COM.

CATHY WRITES, "I LENT MY

SISTER $4,000 FOUR YEARS

AGO.

SHE STOPPED PAYING.

I HAVE TO BEG FOR IT.

SHE RETURN MY E-MAILS.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: WHAT YOU SHOULD DO

IS WRITE IT OFF TO

EXPERIENCE.

I WANT TO TELL YOU, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

YOU'RE NOT A BANK.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE THE

PROCEDURES THAT BANKS HAVE

TO COLLECT MONEY.

AND YOU DON'T -- IF YOU LEND

MONEY TO A RELATIVE, YOU

JUST MADE AN ENEMY.

INSTEAD OF BEING GRATEFUL,

THEY RESENT IT.

AND THE FACT THAT THEY

HAVEN'T PAID YOU, THEY FEEL

GUILTY AND THEY TRY TO AVOID

YOU.

DON'T LOAN MONEY.

GIVE IT TO THEM.

IF THEY'RE IN NEED, GIVE.

BUT DON'T MAKE LOANS TO YOUR

RELATIVES, YOUR NEIGHBORS,

OR YOUR FRIENDS.

PETE SAYS THIS ALL OF THE

TIME.

WE'VE GOT 40 SECONDS.

Kristi: THE LAST

QUESTION WAS ABOUT SIN.

IS ONE SIN WORSE THAN THE

OTHER SIN.

DO YOU THINK SINS ARE

CATEGORIZED?

Pat: NO.

Kristi: THERE IS YOUR

ANSWER.

Pat: TOMORROW,

HERCULES.

AND TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PSALM 147:

"HAPPY IS HE WHO'S HOPE IS

IN THE LORD, HIS GOD."

WE LOVE THE LORD.

WE LOVE YOU.

AND I THANK YOU, KRISTI, FOR

BEING HERE.

Kristi: THANK YOU, PAT,

FOR BEING HERE.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.08

BYE-BYE.
