The 700 Club - November 5, 2012

Author and speaker Sheryl Brady will join us to discuss how overcoming challenges can develop faith and character. Plus, a campus date rape thrust college student Ashley Abercrombie into a life of bulimia to cope with the pain. Read Transcript


THE FIRST THING I

ACTUALLY REMEMBER PICTURING

IS SOMEONE ON THE FLOOR.

A CO-ED WAKES UP TO A

REAL-LIFE NIGHTMARE.

AND HEAR WHY T.D. DRAKES

ASKED CHERYL TO SPEAK AT HIS

MEN'S CONFERENCE ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE HAVE OUR FEARLESS FACTORY

FORECASTER ON TODAY.

JOHN WAGGI WHO FEARLESSLY

FORECAST THE TAKEOVER IN

1994, AND HE'LL GIVE US HIS

TAKE ON THE PRESIDENTIAL

RACE.

WHEN YOU GET THROUGH

LISTENING TO THIS, YOU'LL

KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN.

DON'T LISTEN TO ANYBODY

ELSE.

Terry: WELL, I'LL STAY

TUNED.

Pat: AND YOU'LL HEAR

THE STORY.

HOURS BEFORE THE VOTING

BEGINS, POLLSTERS SAY THAT

THE RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE

IS TOO CLOSE TO CALL.

I'M NOT SURE WAGG WAGGI

AGREES, BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA

AND GOVERNOR MITT ROMNEY

AREN'T TAKING ANY CHANCES

WITH WHAT IS GOING ON.

Terry: BOTH CANDIDATES

ARE STILL OUTLOOKING FOR

EVERY VOTE.

WE HAVE TWO REPORTS,

STARTING WITH DAVID BRODY

WITH THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN.

MITT ROMNEY'S TEAM

BELIEVES THEIR CANDIDATE IS

SURGING AT THE RIGHT TIME.

WALK WITH ME.

WE'LL WALK TOGETHER.

Reporter: ROMNEY'S

LIKEABILITY RATING SITS AT

AN ALL TIME HIGH, AND THE

LATEST POLLS SHOWED HIM TIES

IN PENNSYLVANIA AND

MICHIGAN.

OVER THE WEEKEND, CROWDS AT

ROMNEY EVENTS HAVE BEEN

UNUSUALLY HUGE, 30,000 IN

OHIO, CLOSE TO 20,000 IN

COLORADO.

THE POLLS ARE SO TIGHT IN SO

MANY OF THE SWING STATES,

INCLUDING RIGHT HERE IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE.

TAKE A LOOK.

YOU HAVE THE ROMNEY/RYAN

SIGN ON THIS SIDE OF THE

STREET, AND YOU COME ACROSS

HERE, AND HERE IS OBAMA

/BIDEN SIGNS.

IT IS A DUAL PLACE.

SHE IS A VERY NICE

WOMEN.

I DON'T JUDGE SOMEONE BY

THEIR POLITICAL

AFFILIATION.

Reporter: MEANWHILE IN

NEW HAMPSHIRE, ROMNEY CALLED

IN SOME HELP FROM BIG WIGS,

INCLUDING JOHN MCCABE.

ONE THING I PROMISE YOU,

MITT ROMNEY WILL NEVER GO

AROUND THE WORL APOLOGIZING

FOR AMERICA.

IN NEARBY BOSTON, THE

CAMPAIGN HOPES FOR A TUESDAY

NIGHT VICTORY CELEBRATION.

INSIDE THE GRAND BALLROOM

HANGS THE SIGN "BELIEVE IN

AMERICA."

IT IS ROMNEY'S BELIEF

AMERICANS WILL ULTIMATELY

CHOOSE HIM AS THEIR NEXT

PRESIDENT.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, IN

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.

Reporter: THIS IS

JENNIFER WISHON IN CHICAGO.

HERE AT "OBAMA FOR AMERICA"

HEADQUARTERS, BLEARY-EYED

DEMOCRATS ARE WORKING HARD.

IN THE FINAL HOURS, THE

CAMPAIGN CALLS IN AS MUCH

STAR POWER AS IT CAN

MUSTER.

INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT'S

MOST POWERFUL SURROGATE.

THE GREAT THING ABOUT

BILL CLINTON, PRESIDENT

CLINTON, HE IS SOMEBODY THAT

HAS FACED A LOT OF THESE

PROBLEMS BEFORE.

HE HAS A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE

ON BOTH THE PRESIDENT'S

RECORD AND GOVERNOR ROMNEY'S

RECORD.

HE CAN TALK ABOUT HOW THIS

IS A CLEAR CHOICE WHEN IT

COMES TO ECONOMIC ISSUES.

Reporter: THE RACE IS

SO CLOSE, IN MANY STATES IT

WILL COME DOWN TO WHICH TEAM

GETS THE MOST SUPPORTERS TO

THE POLLS.

TEAM ABOU OBAMA HAS SET UP

5,000 AREAS.

WE WANT VOLUNTEERS IN

EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD WHO KNOW

THOSE NEIGHBORS AND KNOW THE

PEOPLE THEY'RE TALKING TO,

AND CAN TALK TO THEM THROUGH

A LENS IN MADISON,

WISCONSIN, VERSUS SOMEONE IN

NORTH CAROLINA.

Reporter: IN THREE

STATES HE EASILY WON FOUR

YEARS AGO, WISCONSIN, OHIO.

AND THEN HE AND THE FIRST

LADY TRAVEL HERE TO WATCH

THE RESULTS COME IN.

Pat: WE DIDN'T TELL YOU

ONE KEY PREDICTOR.

TERRY, YOU KNOW WHAT THAT

IS?

Terry: NO.

WHAT.

Pat: THE REDSKINS.

WHEN THEY LOSE THE DAY

BEFORE THE ELECTION, THE

INCOME BEN INCUMBENT GOES

DOWN 17 OUT OF 19.

Terry: HAVE THEY QUOTED

ON THAT?

IS THAT TRUE?

HAS HISTORY SHOWN IT?

Pat: NO.

THAT'S WHAT THE MAN IN MY

EAR SAYS.

Terry: WHOEVER THAT GUY

TS.

IS.

Pat: THAT VOICE FROM

FAR AWAY WHISPERED 17 OUT OF

18.

THE REDSKINS WENT DOWN, SO

THAT MEANS THE INCUMBENT

GOES DOWN.

WHAT A FUN ELECTION.

BY THE WAY, WE'LL HAVE A

TREMENDOUS POST-ELECTION

PROGRAM.

WE'VE GOT FRED BARNES.

WE'VE GOT JAY SECALO, AND A

WHOLE BUNCH OF US HERE.

ON -- WELL --

Terry: TOMORROW NIGHT.

THAT'S 11:00?

Pat: YES, EAST COAST

TIME.

WHEN THE NATION GETS READY

FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION, MILLIONS ON THE

EASTERN SEABOARD ARE STILL

RECOVERING FROM HURRICANE

SANDY.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: PAT, THE DEATH

TOLL FROM SANDY STANDS AT

107.

AND 100,000 BUSINESSES AND

HOMES ARE STILL WITHOUT

POWER.

HEATHER CELLS HAS MORE.

Reporter: IN AND AROUND

NEW YORK, AIDE WORKERS SAY

MANY RESIDENTS ARE DAZED,

FRUSTRATED AND EXHAUSTED.

FOR NEARLY A WEEK THEY'VE

BEEN SUFFERING IN BITTER

COLD WITH NO HEAT AND

ELECTRICITY, AND IN SOME

CASES, NO WATER.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW HARD

IT IS TWO GO THROUGH ALL OF

OUR CHRISTMAS ITEMS, ALL

PICTURES OF THE KIDS WHEN

THEY -- THEIR GRADUATIONS,

THEIR CONFIRMATIONS, ALL OF

THAT, IT IS SO HARD.

Reporter: AUTHORITIES

SAY 20,000 PEOPLE IN NEW

YORK CITY COULD STILL BE

HOMELESS TWO WEEKS FROM

NOW.

OTHERS ARE STANDING IN

ENDLESS LINES FOR GAS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS SET

UP A MASS FOOD DISTRIBUTION

IN FAR ROCKAWAY, NEW YORK,

AND HAS GIVEN FOOD BOXES TO

MORE THAN 500 FAMILIES AND

SERVED MORE 5,000 HOT

MEALS.

THERE IS NO TELLING WHEN

THE POWER IS GOING ON.

BUT "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

GOING TO BE HERE TO GIVE

THEM GROCERIES, TO GIVE THEM

A HOT MEAL, AND TO ENCOURAGE

THEM WITH THE LOVE OF

CHRIST.

Reporter: AND MANY

POLLING PLACES COULD BE

WITHOUT POWER TOMORROW, AND

A NOR'EASTER THREATENS TO

HIT THE AREA BY WEDNESDAY.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Lee:

"OPERATION BLESSING," JODY

GETTIS, WHO YOU SAW IN THE

REPORT, SAYS SHE BELIEVES

THAT HURRICANE SANDY IS THE

SECOND LARGEST DISASTER

BEHIND HURRICANE KATRINA.

Pat: I REMEMBER FLYING

IN A HELICOPTER OVER THAT

AREA.

THE DEVASTATION WAS JUST

APPALLING.

AND JODY WAS DOWN THERE.

THIS IS THE SECOND WORST,

BUT IN TERMS OF OVERALL

SUFFERING AND NUMBERS OF

PEOPLE, IT IS PROBABLY

GREATER.

AND WE'VE GOT FOOD KIOSKS

SET UP TO TRY TO GIVE HOT

MEALS TO PEOPLE, AND WE'RE

DOING WHAT WE CAN.

THEY'VE ALREADY GOT MAD AT

THE RED CROSS.

AND THEY SAID ALL THEY'RE

GIVING IS HOT COCOA AND

COFFEE, AND THEY NEED

BLANKETS.

AND FEMA HAS STUFF SET UP,

BUT IT ISN'T BEING

DEPLOYED.

IF THERE IS EVER AN AGENCY

THAT DOESN'T KNOW WHICH END

IS UP, IT IS FEMA.

MAYBE THEY'LL RECOVER, AND

WE HOPE SO BECAUSE THE

PEOPLE NEED THE HELP.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP

"OPERATION BLESSING," YOU

CAN CALL 1-800-759-0700, OR

YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

IT IS THE DISASTER RELIEF

FUND, CBN CENTER.

SO WE WANT TO HELP PEOPLE,

AND IT'S THE ONLY PART OF

THE RELIEF EFFORT, BUT WE'RE

THERE WITH EFFICIENCY AND

CARE AND COMPASSION.

WELL, TERRY, I THINK IT IS

TIME, RIGHT NOW, THAT WE

PRAY FOR AMERICA.

AMERICA HAS SUFFERED.

THIS IS A BODY BLOW.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: I'M NOT GOING

TO -- I DON'T HAVE ANY WORD

FROM THE LORD TO SAY THIS IS

JUDGMENT.

I MEAN, YOU GET YOUR OWN

CONCLUSION.

Terry: IT CERTAINLY

DOES SHOW US OUR

VULNERABILITY, AND HOPEFULLY

IT WILL SHOW THE OPPORTUNITY

WE HAVE TO ALL COME TOGETHER

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR

EACH OTHER IN A SITUATION

LIKE THIS.

Pat: INITIALLY, THE NEW

YORKERS CAME TOGETHER

BEAUTIFULLY, BUT NOW THEY'RE

STARTING TO SQUABBLE BECAUSE

THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FOOD

AND THEY'RE FREEZING COLD

AND IT'S A MESS.

THEY'RE PRAYING THAT THE

ELECTRICITY AND WATER BE

RESTORED FOR THE STORM

VICTIMS, AND SAFETY AND

PROTECTION FOR WORKERS IN

NEW JERSEY AND NEW YORK

CITY.

I GUESS THERE IS LOOTING

GOING ON, THAT THEY WOULD BE

SPARED.

Terry: THESE ARE

PEOPLE -- SOMEONE IS SAYING

THAT I'D LIKE TO PRAY THAT

MANY NEW JOBS WOULD BE

CREATED AND SOON.

AND SOMEONE ELSE SAYING THAT

GOD WOULD GIVE WISDOM AND

DIRECTION TO ALL OF OUR

LEADERS AND PROTECTION TO

OUR COUNTRY.

AND SOMEONE SAYING TO HAVE

FAITHFUL, SELFLESS LEADERS

MOTIVATED TO SERVE THE

PEOPLE AND NOT THEMSELVES.

Pat: TOMORROW, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, IS THE BIG

DAY.

YOU'RE OBLIGATION AS A

CITIZEN AND AS A CHRISTIAN

AND AS A WHATEVER, IS TO GET

OUT AND VOTE.

YOU REALLY NEED TO VOTE.

YOU NEED TO VOTE

INTELLIGENTLY AND VOTE

BIBLICAL VALUES.

THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

SENT JUST VOTE PARTY LABEL,

BUT VOTE BIBLICAL VALUES.

WE'LL TELL YOU MORE ABOUT

IT.

FEARLESS JOHN WAGGI IS GOING

TO GIVE US HIS ANALYSIS OF

THE CENTS.

Terry THE -- OF THE

SENATE.

Terry: LET'S PRAY

FIRST.

Pat: FATHER, IN JESUS'

NAME, WE PRAY FOR THIS

NATION.

WE SEE THIS ELECTION COMING

UP, AND WE SEE THE SUFFERING

THAT HAS BEEN CAUSED JUST IN

ONE STORM, HOW IT HAS LED TO

SUCH HEARTACHE AND

DEVASTATION THROUGHOUT NEW

YORK.

WE THINK OF WHAT HAPPENED IN

KATRINA, AND WE THINK WHAT

IS HAPPENING IN HAITI IS THE

CROPS HAVE BEEN DEVASTATED,

AND THOSE PEOPLE ARE FACING

STARVATION.

GOD ALL MIGHT, WE PRAY FOR

THE SUFFERING AND HELP US TO

REACH OUT TO HELP THEM.

BLESS, O GOD, THIS NATION,

AND GIVE US WISE, GODLY

LEADERS.

WHO CARE ABOUT THIS NATION

AND NOT JUST PARTISAN

ADVANTAGE.

MAY WE HAVE STATESMEN.

GIVE US LEADERS WHO CARE FOR

THE PEOPLE, IN JESUS' NAME

WE ASK IT.

AMEN.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

WE'RE GOING TO GO INSIDE THE

CONTROVERSIAL SENATE RACE

INSIDE THE "SHOW ME" STATE.

THAT'S ALL COMING UP.

STAY WITH US.

Pat: WELL, I WANTED TO

FIND OUT WHAT WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN IN THE SENATE, IN THE

HOUSE, AND I ASKED OUR

POLITICAL ANALYST AT CBN

NEWS TO GET TOGETHER WE ME,

AND WE DID LAST WEEK, AND

OVER THE WEEKEND, THEY HAVE

BEEN CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS

TO TRY TO SEE WHAT THEY CAN

COME UP WITH.

WITH ONE DAY TO GO, ALL OF

THE EYES RIGHT NOW ARE

FOCUSED ON THE PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION, BUT THE SENATE IS

ALSO UP FOR GRABS THIS

YEAR.

ONE OF THE MOST HOTLY

CONTESTED BATTLES IS IN

MISSOURI.

AS JOHN JESSOP REPORTS.

DESPITE WHAT THE EXPERTS

HAVE SAID, THIS IS STILL

ANYONE'S RACE.

Reporter: THE "SHOW ME"

STATE IS PROUD OF PRODUCING

HARD WORKERS WITH A HEALTHY

DOSE OF SKEPTICISM.

MISSOURIANS ARE ALSO KNOWN

FOR BEING POSITIVE, BUT IT

IS HARD TO TELL BY THE

BITTER CAMPAIGN ADS.

TODD AKIN IS SCARY.

I'M AFRAID OF WHAT HE'LL

DO IN CONGRESS.

CORRUPT CLAIRE.

Reporter: OBSERVERS

EXPECTED NASTINESS BETWEEN

CLAIRE MCCASKILL AND

REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER TODD

AKIN, GIVEN THE RACE'S

POTENTIAL TO SHAKE UP THE

SENATE.

THEN CAME THIS.

IF IT IS A LEGITIMATE

RAPE, THE FEMALE BODY HAS

WAYS TO SHUT THAT WHOLE

THING DOWN.

Reporter: THAT SIX

SECONDS UP-ENDED AKIN'S

LEAD.

IT ALSO TOSSED CLAIRE

MCCASKILL A LIFE-LINE SHE

DESPERATELY NEEDED.

CLAIRE MCCASKILL WAS ONE

OF THE MOST VULNERABLE

CANDIDATES, BUT SHE HAS BEEN

ABLE TO CAPITALIZE ON A

MISSTEP FROM HER OPPONENT,

TODD AKIN.

Reporter: BUT THE

SIX-TERM ST. LOUIS

CONGRESSMAN ISN'T GIVING

UP.

HE MADE IN LOST GROUND AND

TURNED THE CONTEST AROUND.

THIS IS A VERY CLOSE

RACE.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE A GOOD

CHANCE OF MAKING THE

DIFFERENCE OF THE CONTROL OF

THE SENATE.

Reporter: IN AN

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW, AKIN

TELLS CBN NEWS HE HAS HAD

PEACE ABOUT HIS CAMPAIGN ALL

ALONE.

EVEN WHEN PARTY BOSSES

PRESSURED HIM TO BOW OUT.

THEY TRIED TO PUSH HIM

OUT.

HE HAS HUNG IN.

HE STILL HAS A CHANCE TO

WIN, BUT HE HAS HAD TO DO

THAT WITHOUT ANY NATIONAL

REPUBLICAN REPORT.

Reporter: HE IS NOT THE

ONLY CANDIDATE DRAWING

CRITICISM ABOUT RAPE.

RICHARD MOURDOCK EXPECTED

PREGNANCIES TO GOD'S WILL.

AKIN BELIEVES LEADERS

ABANDONED HIM BECAUSE HE IS

A CONSERVATIVE WILLING TO

BUCK HIS OWN PARTY.

IT MAY BE THAT SOME OF

THE LEADERSHIP IN THE

SENATE, IN THE REPUBLICAN

SIDE, WOULD BE COMFORTABLE

WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE MORE

MODERATE.

AND BECAUSE I'M NOT,

APPARENTLY IT'S MORE

IMPORTANT TO THEM TO GET

MODERATE THAN MAYBE EVEN

TAKING OVER CONTROL OF THE

SENATE.

Reporter: AKIN STILL

STRUGGLES WITH FINANCES.

CLAIRE MCCASKILL RAISED

NEARLY $6 MILLION IN A FINAL

FUNDRAISING PUSH, WHILE AKIN

TOOK IN LESS THAN

2 MILLION.

MOST OF THAT CAME IN FROM

SMALL ON-LINE DONATIONS.

THE PARTY HAS BEEN VERY

SUCCESSFUL IN TURNING OFF

OUR FUNDING, WHICH IS OUR

MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.

IN A SENSE, THEY'RE TRYING

TO MAYBE STARVE US OF

OXYGEN.

BUT THEY HAVEN'T STARVED ME

OF GASOLINE.

Reporter: AKINS FUELING

HIS MOMENTUM BY ATTENDING

EVENTS LIKE THIS FRIDAY FISH

FRY.

HIS TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN

VALUES APPEAL TO CHRISTIAN

VOTERS.

HE IS A STRONG CHRISTIAN,

HE IS A CONSERVATIVE, AND

THAT'S THE KIND OF PEOPLE I

WANT IN WASHINGTON.

I KNOW, IN SPITE OF WHAT HE

SAID, HE IS ROC-SOLID ON THE

ISSUES.

Reporter: CLAIRE

MCCASKILL PORTRAYS AKIN AS

TOO EXTREME ON ISSUES

RANGING FROM MEDICARE TO

SOCIAL SECURITY TO HIS VIEWS

ON WOMEN.

SHE SLAMMED HIS LEGITIMATE

RAPE COMMENT, WHILE TOUTING

HER RECORD.

ALL SENATORS ARE RANKS,

ONE TO 100.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT NUMBER

50.

HOW DID I GET THERE?

MISSOURI-STYLE

INDEPENDENCE.

I'M CLAIRE MCCASKILL AND I

APPROVE THIS MESSAGE BECAUSE

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE IS RIGHT

FOR MISSOURI.

Reporter: THE CAMPAIGN

DID NOT RESPOND DESPITE

MULTIPLE REQUESTS FOR A

STATEMENT.

HER BACKERS, WHICH INCLUDE

SEVERAL LEADING MISSOURI

NEWSPAPERS, SAY CLAIRE

MCCASKILL'S BIPARTISAN

APPROACH SHOULD BE REWARDED

WITH A SECOND TERM.

SHE HAS REALLY CREATED A

NATIONAL NICHE IN TERMS OF

KEEPING AN EYE ON DEFENSE

SPENDING, AND TAKING HER

FORMER ROLE AS A STATE

AUDITOR AND APPLYING IT TO

HER ROLE IN THE SENATE, AND

SAVING TAXPAYERS MILLIONS,

IF NOT BILLIONS, IN

SAVINGS.

Reporter: AKIN

DISAGREES.

HE CALLS CLAIR CLAIRE

MCCASKILL OUT OF STEP FOR

BACKING THE OBAMA CARE LAW.

HE BELIEVES THAT IS THE

IMAGE VOTERS WILL TAKE WITH

THEM TO THE POLLS.

I'M VERY MAINSTREAM FOR

THE STATE OF MISSOURI.

I'M GOING FORWARD WITH THE

MISSION, AND I PLAN, BY THE

GRACE OF GOD, TO REPLACE

GLARCLAIRE MCCASKILL.

Reporter: JOHN JESSOP,

CBN NEWS, ST. LOUIS COUNTY,

MISSOURI.

Pat: OKAY, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, TOMORROW IS THE

BIG DAY.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE

CONGRESS?

WE'VE BEEN FOCUSING IN ON

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION?

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SENATE.

YOU KNOW, THAT HAS BEEN A

THORN IN THE SIDE OF

REPUBLICANS.

AND OUR CBN NEWS POLITICAL

EDITOR JOHN WAGGI IS HERE

WITH US, WITH HIS FEARLESS

PREDICTIONS FOR THIS YEAR'S

ELECTION.

JOHN, START WITH MISSOURI.

I CAN'T IMAGINE ANYBODY

TALKING ABOUT A LEGITIMATE

RACE.

UNLESS -- I DON'T UNDERSTAND

IT.

I CANNOT UNDERSTAND IT.

BUT HE BACKED OFF OF THAT

AND SAID I'M SORRY AND SO

FAR.

IMMEDIATELY, PAT, HE

BACKED OFF OF THAT.

IMMEDIATELY HE CAME OUT WITH

AN APOLOGY.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS IN

THE HEAT OF A DEBATE YOU RUN

INTO TROUBLE.

I'M GOING TO GO OUT ON A

LIMB WITH THAT VERY FIRST

RACE IN MISSOURI AND SAYING

THAT AKIN IS GOING TO PULL

IT OUT.

IT IS CLOSE IN SOME OF THE

POLLS.

I THINK THAT CLAIRE

MCCASKILL IS TIED TO THE

HEALTH CARE PLAN, OBAMACARE,

WHICH IS VERY UNPOPULAR IN

MISSOURI.

I THINK THERE WAS A

REFERENDUM THAT 70% WERE

AGAINST TYING MISSOURI TO

OBAMACARE.

AND SHE IS IN ON THAT.

I THINK IT MAY GO FOR AKIN.

BUT THAT'S AN OUT ON THE

LIMB PICK, I'LL ADMIT.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT THE

REST OF THE COUNTRY.

AS FAR AS THE HOUSE GOES,

YOU DON'T THINK THERE IS

GOING TO BE ANY SHIFT.

YOU THINK IT IS GOING TO BE

THE SAME NUMBER?

I THINK THAT THE HOUSE IS

GOING TO STAY JUST ABOUT

WHAT IT IS NOW.

YOU KNOW, THE DEMOCRATS HAD

A DRIVE FOR 25 CAMPAIGN,

WHERE THEY WERE GOING TO GET

THE NECESSARY 25 SEATS TO

MAKE NANCY PELOSI SPEAKER

AGAIN.

I BELIEVE BOTH ON THE RIGHT

AND LEFT SIDE OF THE AISLE,

THERE IS AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

THAT THAT ISN'T GOING TO

HAPPEN.

RIGHT NOW THE REPUBLICANS

HAVE ABOUT A 25, 30-SEAT

MARGIN.

THEY'RE GOING TO KEEP IT, I

THINK.

I PREDICT NO CHANGE AND THE

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

Pat: WE'LL TAKE THAT.

LET'S GO TO THE SENATE.

WE'VE GOT HARRY REID AS

MAJORITY LEADER, AND WE'VE

GOT -- ALL RIGHT, SEVEN

SEATS.

I'M PREDICTING THE

REPUBLICANS TAKE SEVEN

SEATS.

Pat: LET'S GO FOR

THEM.

WHICH ONES?

MISSOURI, THAT WE'VE

ALREADY TALKED ABOUT.

NEBRASKA, NORTH DAKOTA,

OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA,

VIRGINIA, AND WISCONSIN.

Pat: PENNSYLVANIA?

WELL, PENNSYLVANIA IS AN

INTERESTING RACE.

THAT WAS CONSIDERED A

SHOO-IN FOR ROBERT

CASEY, JR., UP TO TWO MONTHS

AGO.

TOM SMITH, THE REPUBLICAN,

HAS BEEN MOVING UP IN THE

POLLS.

AND NOW IT IS A VIRTUAL DEAD

HEAT.

WITH PENNSYLVANIA MOVING IN

A DEAD HEAT IN THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE AND THE

FACT THAT A REPUBLICAN WAS

ELECTED SENATOR TWO YEARS

AGO, I'M GOING TO GO WITH

TOM SMITH, WHO IS A

BUSINESSMAN, WHO HAS BEEN

PUTTING TOGETHER SOME

EFFECTIVE ADS, AND WHO CAN

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE ANGER

OVER COAL COUNTRY.

Pat: SLIPPING OVER THE

MOST CONTESTED STATE IS

OHIO.

YOU'RE PREDICTING THE

REPUBLICANS WILL WIN ONE

THERE?

I AM PREDICTING, BASED ON

WHO I THINK WILL TURN OUT ON

THE POLLS.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE A

SURPRISE.

JOSH MANDEL IS A REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATE.

HE IS AN EX-MARINE, 35 YEARS

OLD, AND HAS ALREADY WON A

STATE-WIDE RACE IN OHIO.

HE HAS BEEN RUNNING VERY

EVEN WITH JARED BROWN, BUT I

THINK THAT MANDEL MAY COME

IN FOR A SURPRISE ON

ELECTION NIGHT.

Pat: TOMMY THOMPSON,

WHO IS A MANY-TERM GOVERNOR

OF WISCONSIN, AND HE IS

COMING IN RUNNING FOR

SENATE, AND NOW HE IS

BEHIND?

HE IS UP IN ONE POLL AND

DOWN IN ANOTHER POLL.

IT IS JUST ABOUT EVEN IN

WISCONSIN BETWEEN TOMMY

THOMPSON AND TAMMY BALDEN.

SHE REPRESENTS MADS.

MADISON.

SHE HAS A SLIGHT EDGE IN A

COUPLE OF THE POLLS.

WISCONSIN HAS A NATIONAL

CHAIRMAN, A VICE

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, A

NEWLY ELECTED SENATOR TO

YEARS AGO, AND A NEWLY

ELECTED GOVERNOR WHO WON A

RECALL ELECTION BACK IN

JUNE.

IF THERE IS EVER A TURNOUT

EFFORT THAT WOULD HELP TOMMY

THOMPSON, IT IS GOING TO BE

IN WISCONSIN.

Pat: YOU FIGURE KEN

CONWRIGHT IS GOING OUT FROM

NORTH DAKOTA.

YOU THINK NORTH DAKOTA IS

GOING TO SWING -- HE IS A

CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRAT AND

NOW YOU THINK IT IS GOING TO

GO REPUBLICAN?

I THINK THE REPUBLICAN,

RICK BYRD IS GOING TO WIN.

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NOMINATED

AN ATTRACTIVE CONSERVATIVE

NAMED HEIDI HICRAMP.

SHE IS A CANDIDATE THAT A

LOT OF NORTH DAKOTANS LIKE.

I STILL THINK IT WILL LEAN

REPUBLICAN IN THE END.

Pat: YOU THINK THAT THE

REPUBLICANS WILL TAKE

MONTANA, BUT THAT'S NOT YOUR

CALL?

NO.

I'M PREDICTING THAT THE

INCUMBENT, JON TESTER, WHO

WON IN A SQUEAKER SIX YEARS

AGO, IS GOING TO HOLD ON IN

MONTANA.

THIS COULD GO EITHER WAY.

RAYBURD HAS WON A STATE-WIDE

RACE BEFORE -- 48, 48 I

BELIEVE IS THE NUMBER.

I'M GOING TO HOLD ON TO THE

INCUMBENT, EVEN THOUGH

ROMNEY WILL WIN THE STATE.

Pat: IT LOOKS LIKE THE

REPUBLICANS WILL LOOSE A

COUPLE.

OLYMPIAN IS RETIRING IN

MAINE.

ANGUS KING HAS BEEN

GOVERNOR OF THE STATE.

I THINK HE IS SO FAR HEADING

IN THE POLLS AND HE IS GOING

TO WIN OVER THE REPUBLICAN

AND THE DEMOCRATS, AND HE

WILL CAUCUS WITH THE

DEMOCRATS, AND THAT WILL

GIVE THE DEMOCRATS A

TAKE-AWAY WITH OLYMPIAN

SNOWE RETIRING.

Pat: AND IN

MASSACHUSETTS, YOU'VE GOT

ELIZABETH WARREN, WHO IS

CLAIMING SHE IS AN INDIAN?

YES, SHE RAN INTO SOME

TROUBLE WITH THAT.

SCOTT BROWN WAS THE DARLING

OF THE NATION A COUPLE OF

YEARS AGO WHEN HE SAID HE

WOULD BE THE 51st VOTE

AGAINST OBAMACARE.

HE IS STILL RUNNING CLOSE IN

THE POLLS.

ONE POLL SHOWS ELIZABETH

WARREN SIX POINTS AHEAD.

THIS IS A STATE WITH 3-1

DEMOCRAT REGISTRATION

ADVANTAGE.

INDEPENDENTS ARE RUNNING FOR

SCOTT BROWN, BUT HE NEEDS AN

EVEN BIGGER NEED.

Pat: ELIZABETH WARREN

SHOULDN'T APPEAL TO THOSE

IRISH UP THERE, LIKE TIP

O'NEILL AND THE KENNEDYS.

SHE IS AN IRISH, BUT SHE IS

CLAIMING TO BE INDIAN.

DESPITE HER CLAIMS AS FAR

AS THE ETHNIC BACKGROUND AND

MAKEUP GOES, SHE HAS BEEN

MAKING HEADWAY.

UNLESS HE IS ABLE TO PULL

OUT A BIG, BIG TURNOUT AMONG

INDEPENDENTS, I THINK HE

WINS IT IN MASSACHUSETTS.

Pat: IN CONNECTICUT,

YOU'VE GOT THE HEIRESS OF

A --

LINDA McMAHON IS ONE

WHO ENDED UP LOSING A SENATE

RACE THERE BY 12 POINTS.

NOW IN THE RACE TO REPLACE

SENATOR LIEBERMAN, WHO IS AN

INDEPENDENT, SHE IS IN A

SIX-POINT MARGIN.

AND SHE HAS BEEN SPENDING

HER OWN MONEY ON

ADVERTISING, SO SHE HAS A

CHANCE, BUT I'M GOING WITH

THE DEMOCRAT MURPHY TO HOLD

ON TO THAT SEAT.

Pat: SWINGING DOWN HERE

TO VIRGINIA, THERE IS A

CLOSE ONE BETWEEN TWO FORMER

GOVERNORS.

TIM KAINE, WHO IS A

DEMOCRAT, AND GEORGE ALLEN,

WHO IS A VERY POPULAR

REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR.

YES, WHO NARROWLY LOST

THE RACE SIX YEARS AGO.

I'M GOING WITH ALLEN.

YOU CAN PICK YOUR POLL IN

THIS.

THERE IS ONE THAT SHOWS

KAINE UP AND ONE THAT SHOWS

ALLEN UP BY FIVE.

I THINK THE TURNOUT UNDER

GOVERNOR McDONNELL, WHO IS

A REPUBLICAN

GOVERNOR-ELECTED BY A BIG

MARGIN A COUPLE OF YEARS

AGO, I THINK THAT WILL BE

ENOUGH TO PUT ALLEN OVER THE

TOP.

BUT I'M NOT CONFIDENT IN

THAT PICK, I HAVE TO TELL

YOU.

Pat: OKAY.

BUT IN ANY EVENT, ROMNEY IS

AHEAD OF ALLEN IN THE

POLLING?

YES.

BUT HE IS STILL HITTING THE

STATE IN THESE LAST DAYS.

Pat: I CAN'T BELIEVE

IT.

THEY USUALLY IGNORE

VIRGINIA.

AND WE'VE GOT SOMETHING IN

NEW MEXICO.

NEW MEXICO IS A HOLD FOR

THE DEMOCRATS.

THEY HAD AN ATTRACTIVE

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE,

HEATHER WILSON, BUT THE

DEMOCRATS ARE JUST RUNNING

TOO FAR AHEAD IN MEXICO, AND

MARTIN HEINRICK IS GOING TO

TAKE IT.

MICHIGAN IS ANOTHER HOLD FOR

THE DEMOCRATS.

WITH THE NATIONAL ELECTION

BEING EVEN, THIS ONE COULD

BE ON THE RADAR SCREEN.

BUT DEBBIE STAVENO, THE

INCUMBENT HAS A LEAD IN

THREE DIFFERENT POLLS.

IF BY SOME MIRACLE MICHIGAN

GOES FOR ROMNEY, MAYBE HE'LL

RIDE SOME COAT TAILS.

Pat: SO WHEN IT IS ALL

SHAKEN AND STEWED -- SHAKEN,

NOT STIRRED -- YOU THINK THE

REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO

PICK UP SEVEN SENATE SEATS

AND THEY'RE GOING TO LOSE

TWO, WHICH WILL BE A NET

GAIN OF FIVE.

WHICH WOULD BE ENOUGH TO

GIVE THEM SENATE CONTROL.

I REALIZE THAT THE

LAST-MINUTE POLLS HAVE BEEN

GOING AGAINST THE

REPUBLICANS, AND ROMNEY HAS

GONE FROM MAYBE A 4-POINT

LEAD TO A VIRTUAL TIE, AND

THAT COULD AFFECT SENATE

RACES, BUT I THINK THE

POLLSTERS ARE MISSING THE

TURNOUT MODEL, THE

ENTHUSIASM, AND PERHAPS SOME

SUPPORT FROM INDEPENDENTS.

IT MAY BE THAT OBAMACARE IS

STILL OUT THERE AS AN

ISSUE.

BECAUSE IT IS NOT GOING TO

BE REPEALED IF REPUBLICANS

DON'T WHI WIN THE SENATE.

SO IF VOTERS ARE INTERESTED

IN THAT, THEY'LL ELECT THEIR

CANDIDATE.

Pat: YOU SAID

PENNSYLVANIA WAS GOING TO GO

FOR OBAMA.

I'M THINKING PENNSYLVANIA IS

GOING TO GO FOR ROMNEY?

WE MAY AGREE TO DISAGREE

ON THAT ONE.

I DO BELIEVE THAT -- I HAVE

IT GOING FOR ROMNEY IN THE

OVERALL PRESIDENTIAL RACE,

BUT I HAVE PENNSYLVANIA

GOING FOR OBAMA AND I HAVE

WISCONSIN GOING FOR ROMNEY.

I HAVE VIRGINIA, OHIO,

FLORIDA, NORTH CAROLINA, ALL

GOING FOR ROMNEY.

Pat: VIRGINIA, OHIO,

FLORIDA AND NORTH CAROLINA

FOR ROMNEY?

AND I FO IOWA FOR

OBAMA.

AND OHIO FOR ROMNEY.

I FEEL LIKE I'M SWIMMING

UPSTREAM BASED ON THE MOST

RECENT POLLS, BUT I THINK

TURNOUT WILL GIVE THE

ELECTION FOR ROMNEY.

Pat: THAT WILL MEAN A

CLEAN SWEEP.

IF YOU'RE PREDICTIONS ARE

RIGHT, THE REPUBLICANS WILL

HAVE IT ALL, AND THEY BETTER

GET SOMETHING DONE.

THEY'LL HAVE THE HOUSE, THE

SENATE, AND THE PRESIDENT.

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT,

THEY BETTER GET SOMETHING

DONE.

Pat: OKAY, JOHN WAGGI,

WE WILL LOOK WITH EAGER

ANTICIPATION TO SEE IF YOU

WERE AS GOOD AS YOU WERE --

HOW MANY YEARS HAS IT BEEN?

THAT WAS 1994 WHEN I

CALLED THE HOUSE FOR THE

REPUBLICANS.

I'M AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

UP-SET PICKER BECAUSE I

PICKED THE DEMOCRATS TO

STAKE THE CENT SENATE IN

1996 WHEN IT DIDN'T LOOK

LIKE IT WAS GOING TO.

Pat: TERRY, WHAT'S

NEXT?

Terry: NO PRESSURE,

JOHN.

UP NEXT, A COLLEGE FRESHMAN

GONE WILD GETS A SECOND

CHANCE.

ALL OF THAT AFTER THIS.

Terry: LIKE SO MANY

FRESHMAN, ASHLEY

ABERCROMBIE, WAS LIVING AWAY

FROM HOME FOR THE FIRST

TIME.

SHE HAD DREAMED OF GOING TO

COLLEGE FOR YEARS, BUT SHE

NEVER IMAGINED THE REALITY.

WE THREW A PARTY EN MY

ROOM ON MY FLOOR, AND WE

WERE ALL DRINKING.

AND AT SOME POINT, THERE

WERE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN OUR

ROOM, AND THEN NOT A LOT OF

PEOPLE IN OUR ROOM.

Reporter: WHEN THE

PARTY ENDED, ASHLEY

ABERCROMBIE PASSED OUT FROM

DRINKING TOO MUCH.

BUT SHE WAS NOT ALONE.

A YEAR EARLIER, ASHLEY LEFT

HER SMALL TOWN TO ATTEND

COLLEGE.

SHE WAS ANXIOUS TO PURSUE A

CAREER IN FASHION AND

TEXTILE DESIGN.

I CAME FROM A 15,000

PERSON TOWN, AND STEPPED IN

A COLLEGE THAT WAS TWICE THE

SIZE OF MY HOME TOWN.

I THOUGHT I WOULD LEAVE MY

HOME TOWN AND JUST CHANGE

THE WORLD.

Reporter: SHE ATTENDED

COLLEGE ON A FULL-RIGHT

ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP AND

PLUGGED RIGHT INTO CAMPUS

LIFE.

I PURSUED THE SAME THINGS

I HAD IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I JOINED THE STUDENT

GOVERNMENT, AND I STARTED AS

AN ATHLETE.

Reporter: BUT THERE WAS

TROUBLE BACK AT HOME.

HER PARENTS DIVORCED DURING

HIS FRESHMAN YEAR.

ASHLEY WAS DEVASTATED.

IT WAS ACTUALLY HARD ON

ME.

I THOUGHT, WHERE IS THE

SOLID GROUND.

HERE I'M IN THIS BRAND NEW

PLACE, AND I'M NOT EVEN SURE

ABOUT HOME ANYMORE.

Reporter: ASHLEY DIDN'T

TALK TO ANYONE ABOUT THE

MOUNTING STRESS IN HER

LIFE.

I DEVELOPED AN EATING

DISORDER, CALLED BULEMIA.

THAT IS ONE WAY I DEALT WITH

THE PRESSURE.

THAT COULD MEAN I COULD HIDE

AND NOT HAVE TO SHARE WITH

PEOPLE.

I COULD BE BEHIND CLOSED

DOORS AND EXPRESS HIS

EMOTION, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS

IN AN UNHEALTHY WAY.

Reporter: IN FACT, SHE

WAS ABLE TO KEEP UP HER

GRADES AND ACTIVITIES FOR A

WHILE, BUT OVER TIME SHE

LOST HER GRIP ON WHO SHE

WAS.

SHE WENT FROM RESPECTED

STUDENT ATHLETE TO PARTY

GIRL.

I STARTED DRINKING ALL OF

THE TIME.

THE ONLY WAY TO COPE WITH

BEING IN A CAGE WAS JUST TO

DRINK MORE OR BINGE AND

PURGE OR DO A DRUG.

ANYTHING THAT WOULD KEEP ME

DISCONNECTED FROM, YOU KNOW,

WHO I WAS.

Reporter: HER GRADES

ALSO SUFFERED.

SHE WAS PLACED ON ACADEMIC

PROBATION AND QUICK THE

ROWING TEAM.

THERE WERE SOME DAYS

WHERE I COULDN'T EVEN GET

OUT OF BED.

I WOULD BE GOING TO CLASSES

AND DOING THINGS WITH MY

FRIENDS, BUT NOT REALLY

THERE, NOT REALLY PRESENT.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

AFTER ASHLEY AND HER FRIENDS

PARTIED IN HER DORM ROOM,

SHE PASSED OUT FROM DRINKING

TOO MUCH.

A MAN WAITED FOR HER FRIENDS

TO LEAVE, INTENDING TO RAPE

HER.

WHEN I CAME TO AGAIN, THE

FIRST THING I REMEMBER

PICTURING IS MY UNDERWEAR ON

THE FLOOR.

AND THINKING, WHAT IS GOING

ON AND COMING TO AND

REALIZING, OH, MY

GOD,, LIKE, THIS IS REALLY

HAPPENING.

THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING TO

ME.

AND NOT BEING ABLE TO

FIGHT.

AND NOT BEING ABLE TO SAY

ANYTHING OTHER THAN NO,

STOP!

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN

DO.

IT IS A HELPLESS MOMENT AND

COMPLETE LOSS OF CONTROL.

COMPLETE VIOLATION OF

EVERYTHING A PERSON IS.

Reporter: THE RAPIST

WAS A POPULAR STUDENT

ATHLETE.

AND ASHLEY NEVER PRESSED

CHARGES.

I WASN'T SURE ANYBODY

WOULD BELIEVE ME.

BEING THE PARTY GIRL I WAS,

I THINK THEY WOULD HAVE

THOUGHT I CHOSE TO SLEEP

WITH THIS ATHLETE.

Reporter: AFTER THE

ATTACK, ASHLEY LEFT SCHOOL.

IN A WEIRD WAY, IT SORT

OF SOBERED ME.

THAT THE LIFESTYLE I WAS

LIVING HAD TAKEN ME A PLACE

I NEVER WANTED TO GO.

Reporter: ASHLEY

EVENTUALLY MOVED TO

CALIFORNIA.

BUT SHE SOON REALIZED EVEN A

MOVE ACROSS THE COUNTRY

COULDN'T ERASE HER PAST.

WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE

YOU ARE.

I JUST WANTED BULEMIA TO BE

DONE.

I JUST WANTED THE MEMORIES

TO GO AWAY.

I JUST WANTED THE PAIN TO GO

AWAY.

THAT DIDN'T HELP ME ADDRESS

ANY OF THE REAL ISSUES.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

WORKING AT A RESTAURANT

WHERE SEVERAL OF THE WAIT

STAFF WERE CHRISTIANS.

SHE NOTICED A DIFFERENCE IN

THE WAY THEY LIVED.

THESE PEOPLE HAD THIS

LIFE ON THE INSIDE OF THEM.

AT THE TIME -- NOW I KNOW

WHAT IT IS, BUT AT THE TIME,

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

DESCRIBE IT.

I JUST KNEW I WANTED IT.

WE WOULD GO OUT FOR COFFEE

AND DINNERS.

IT WASN'T TOO OFTEN AFTER

THAT, I ASKED HIM, HEY, CAN

I COME TO CHURCH WITH YOU

GUYS.

Reporter: SHE HEARD A

WOMAN AT CHURCH SHARE A

STORY THAT WAS SIMILAR TO

HER OWN.

IT WAS THE POWER OF A

STORY THAT STARTED TO SET ME

FREE.

AND SO I GAVE MY LIFE TO

CHRIST THAT DAY.

Reporter: ASHLEY WAS

HEALED FROM BULEMIA.

AS SHE LEARNED MORE ABOUT

GOD, SHE UNDERSTOOD THAT SHE

NO LONGER HAD TO HIDE BEHIND

THE MASK OF SHAME.

AS I BEGAN TO RENEW MY

MIND IN

CRIEFTD,

CHRIST, AND

WHAT THAT SIMPLY MEANT TO ME

WAS LEARNING, AND SAWEDING

PALM 1: 39, WHERE GOD SAYS

I'M FEARFULLY AND LOVINGLY

MADE.

GOD FOUND A WAY TO REACH

ME.

GOD FOUND A WH WAY TO

RESTORE MY LIFE.

AND GOD FOUND PEOPLE WHO

WERE WILL TO BE WITH ME WHEN

I WAS UNLOVABLE.

Terry: GOD IS ALWAYS

THERE.

HE IS ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR

US, ALWAYS AFTER OUR

HEARTS.

THE BIBLE SAYS A GOOD

SHEPHERD WILL LEAVE THE

ENTIRE FLOCK OF SHEEP TO GO

AFTER THE ONE THAT IS LOST.

IS THAT YOU TODAY?

ARE YOU THE ONE WHO IS, LIKE

ASHLEY, IS LOOKING FOR

ANSWERS IN ALL OF THE WRONG

PLACES.

TRYING TO CONTROL BECAUSE

THINGS ARE OUT OF CONTROL IN

YOUR LIFE.

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT

LIFE IS ALL ABOUT AND HOW DO

I MAKE SENSE OF THIS?

YOU KNOW, THE ONLY ONE WHO

CAN REALLY ANSWER THOSE

QUESTIONS IS THE ONE WHO

CREATED YOU.

GOD'S WORD ALSO SAYS THAT HE

HAD YOU IN MIND BEFORE THE

FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH

WERE LAID.

THAT HE IS THE LOVER OF YOUR

SOUL.

THAT HE CREATES YOU WITH

PURPOSE, WITH HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

IF THAT IS SOMETHING THAT

YOU DESIRE, SOMETHING THAT

YOU HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED IN

YOUR LIFE, THE GOOD NEWS I

HAVE FOR YOU TODAY IS IT'S

FOR ANYONE WHO ASKS JESUS.

TO BECOME THE LORD OF THEIR

LIFE.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

IT IS NOT A RELIGIOUS

EXPERIENCE.

IT IS ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP.

IT IS ABOUT UNDERSTANDING

WHO YOU ARE IN RELATIONSHIP

TO HIM, AND COMING TO A

PLACE WHERE YOU JUST LAY IT

ALL DOWN BEFORE HIM, AND SAY

ENOUGH OF ME.

I WANT YOU, AND ALL OF YOU I

CAN POSSIBLY GET.

IT'S ACKNOWLEDGING THAT EACH

ONE OF US IS A SINNER, BUT

TODAY IT IS ACKNOWLEDGING

THAT YOU ARE A SINNER IN

NEED OF A SAVIOR.

EVERY ONE OF US HAS TO COME

TO THAT PLACE WHEN IT COMES

TO CHRIST.

ACKNOWLEDGING THAT HIS DEATH

ON THE CROSS WAS NOT JUST

SORT OF A GENETIC THING THAT

WAS DONE FOR SOME SPIRITUAL

TRUTH.

IT WAS FOR ME.

FOR MY SIN.

FOR MY SHORT COMING.

I NEEDED TO BE SAVED, AND SO

DO YOU.

SO DO YOU.

TODAY COME TO THE LORD

UNDERSTANDING THAT.

JUST FALL ON YOUR KNEES

BEFORE HIM AND SAY WHAT SO

MANY OF US WHO FOUND PEACE

AND MEANING AND HOPE AND A

FUTURE HAVE SAID.

JESUS, I NEED YOU.

I WANT YOU.

HERE IS MY LIFE.

I WANT TO BE CHANGED.

YOU SEE, THAT'S WHAT'S GOD

IS LOOKING FOR, PERMISSION

TO COME IN.

TO BE ALL THAT HE IS TO YOU

PERSONALLY.

TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

TO GIVE YOU A NEW

UNDERSTANDING OF WHO YOU

ARE, WHO HE IS, AND WHAT

THIS IS ALL ABOUT.

HOW DO YOU GET THAT?

HOW DO YOU GET WHAT ASHLEY

FOUND?

YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF.

YOU ASK HIM.

GIVE HIM EVERYTHING YOU'VE

GOT, AND FOLLOW HARD AFTER

HIM.

WE WANT TO HELP YOU DO

THAT.

WE'VE PUT SOME INFORMATION

TOGETHER FOR THOSE OF YOU

WHO SAY YES TO JESUS CHRIST

TODAY.

OKAY, JESUS, I WANT TO KNOW

YOU.

I WANT TO BE SAVED.

WHAT DO YOU DO THEN?

THIS IS A PACKET PAT HAS PUT

TOGETHER FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY" AND

IT'S FILLED WITH

INFORMATION.

WHAT DOES A NEW BELIEVER

DO?

HOW DO YOU GROW IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

AND THIS IS FREE.

SO IS THE PHONE CALL TO GET

IT.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I'VE

PRAYED THAT PRAYER AND I'D

LIKE THE "NEW DAY" PACKET

AND WE'LL GET IT OUT TO

YOU.

IF YOU'RE SOMEBODY WHO

STRUGGLES WITH EATING

DISORDERS, WE'VE GOT A GREAT

LITTLE PAMPHLET.

JUST EX FO ASK FOR "THE

OVERCOMING EATING DISORDERS"

AND WE'LL SEND IT TO YOU.

Pat: T.D. J J. PACKS

THEM IN.

THEY HAVE WOMEN CONFERENCES,

AND THEY'RE THOUSANDS WHO

COME IN.

WE'LL MEET A PROTEGE OF T.D.

JAKES.

AND SHE GOES WHERE NO WOMAN

HAS GONE BEFORE HER.

YOU'LL FIND THIS

FASCINATING.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

A FEDERAL JUDGE HEARS

ARGUMENTS TODAY IN THE FIGHT

TO OVERTURN ARIZONA'S BAN ON

ABORTIONS AT 20 WEEKS OF

PREGNANCY.

OPPONENTS SAY THE REGULATION

IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL BECAUSE

IT PREVENTS SOME WOMEN FROM

HAVING ABORTIONS.

BUT A LOWER COURT REFUSED TO

BLOCK THE BAN IN JUNE.

THAT JUDGE RULED THE LAW DID

NOT PREVENT A WOMAN FROM

HAVING AN ABORTION.

NINE OTHER STATES HAVE BANS

AT 20 WEEKS, BUT ARIZONA'S

BAN IS CONSIDERED THE

EARLIEST BECAUSE IT

CALCULATES THE STARTING

POINT DIFFERENTLY.

CBN HAS LAUNCHED A NEW

BENGALI LANGUAGE TELEVISION

PROGRAM IN INDIA.

IT IS CALL SAMADAN, WHICH

MEANS SOLUTIONS.

IT IS THE FIRST CHRISTIAN

PROGRAM OF ITS KIND TO

BROADCAST IN BENGALI.

IT AIRS SUNDAY MORNINGS.

EACH PROGRAM SHARES THE LOVE

OF JESUS THROUGH

TESTIMONIES, MUSIC VIDEOS,

AND MINISTRY FROM THE

BIBLE.

IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO

REACH MORE

THAN 200 MILLION

BENGALI SPEAKERS.

YOU CAN FIND

OUT MORE ABOUT

WHAT CBN IS DOING AROUND THE

WORLD BY

LOGGING

ON TO

CBNNEWS.COM/INTERNATIONAL.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND TERRY

WILL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WE'RE STILL

GOING, AND, MAN, IT IS ONE

MORE DAY.

TOMORROW IS THE BIG VOTING

DAY.

BUT YOU DON'T CARE SO MUCH

ABOUT VOTING AS YOU DO ABOUT

YOUR OWN PERSONAL FINANCES.

RAZ AND JILLIAN MARTIN WERE

A COUPLE WHO OWED $40,000,

AND THEY NEVER THOUGHT THEY

WOULD BE ABLE TO PAY THAT

$40,000 OFF.

AND THEN THEY MADE ONE

CHANGE THAT HELPED THEM

BECOME COMPLETELY

DEBT-FREE.

WATCH THIS.

YEE-HAW!!

Reporter: JULIAN AND

RAZ MARTIN STAYED BUSY WITH

TWO TODDLERS.

JULIAN WORKS AT A CEILING

FAN COMPANY, BUT WHEN, EH?

I WHENHE IS HOME, HE IS AN

HANDS-ON DAD.

AND JILLIAN IS A

STAY-AT-HOME MOM.

AND THEY BOTH LOVE "THE 700

CLUB."

IT WAS RAZ WHO INITIALLY

SUGGESTED THEY JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

WHAT PROMPTED US TO BE

GIVERS TO "THE 700 CLUB" WAS

JUST THE DIFFERENT IMPACTS

"THE 700 CLUB" HAS AROUND

THE WORLD.

IT TOUCHED MY HEART.

THEY'RE DOING GREAT

WORK.

GOD IS USING THE LITTLE BIT

I CAN GIVE TO HELP OTHERS

AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: BUT A FEW

YEARS AGO, THE MARTINS

STRUGGLED WITH GIVING AWAY

MONEY.

HAY HAD ACCUMULATED $40,000

IN DEBT.

THEN THEY TOOK A CLASS ON

FINANCES.

IT CAME TO APOINT WHERE

YOU START LOOKING AT CAR

LOANS AND STUDENT LOANS.

IF YOU PAY THE MINIMUM

BALANCE, YOU'RE GOING TO BE

THERE FOR A LONG TIME.

WE STARTED OFF BY PAYING

OUR SMALLEST DEBT FIRST.

ONCE WE PAID THAT OFF, WE

TOOK THAT PAYMENT AND PUT IT

ON THE NEXT SMALLEST DEBT.

UNTIL WE GOT UP TO OUR

LARGEST DEBT.

WE CONTINUED TO ADD THE

DIFFERENT PAYMENTS ON TO

THAT SO WE WOULD EVENTUALLY

BE DEBT-FREE OUTSIDE OF OUR

HOME.

Reporter: THEN THEY

WERE ABLE TO AFFORD A NEW

HOME, ONE MUCH BIGGER THAN

THE ONE THEY WERE IN BEFORE

THE BOYS WERE BORN.

GOD IS ABLE TO TAKE THAT

10% AND STRETCH IT MUCH

LARGER.

THAT'S ONE AREA THE LORD

WILL HONOR YOU IF YOU HONOR

HIM.

Pat: DISCIPLINE, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, DISCIPLINE.

AND THEY HAD DISCIPLINE, AND

THEY BEGAN TO PAY DOWN.

THEY DID A PRINCIPLE I THINK

IS REALLY WISE.

YOU HAVE FOUR OR FIVE BILLS,

THEY ALL BOTHER YOU.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

ONE WAY IS TO PAY THE ONE

THAT HAS THE HIGHEST

INTEREST.

THEY DID ONE THAT IS MORE

SATISFYING.

THEY KNOCKED OFF THE LITTLE

ONE FIRST.

AND THEY SAY, WOW, WE HAVE A

VICTORY.

AND THEY PICK UP THE NEXT

ONE AND THE NEXT ONE, AND

BEFORE LONG, THEY'VE GOTTEN

THEM ALL AND BEFORE LONG,

THEY'RE COMPLETELY

DEBT-FREE.

AND IT'S GOOD.

THIS IS COMING OUT.

IF YOU HAVEN'T GOTTEN IT IN

THE MAIL, YOU WILL BE

GETTING IT.

INSIDE THERE IS SOMETHING,

TERRY, THAT IS SO VALUABLE.

Terry: WHAT IS THAT?

Pat: IT IS THE RECIPE

OF MY MINESTRONE SOUP.

Terry: CAN I SAY, THAT

RECIPE IS EXCELLENT.

Pat: HAVE YOU MADE IT

YET?

Terry: I HAVEN'T MADE

IT YET, BUT I AM GOING TO.

THE WEATHER IS GETTING RIGHT

HERE FOR A BIG KETTLE OF

SOUP.

Pat: AND INSIDE THERE

IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO

PARTICIPATE IN THE MINISTRY

OF CBN.

AND YOU CAN SAY, HERE IS WHY

I'M THANKFUL, AND I I'M

THANKFUL FOR THE LORD.

LOOK AROUND AND SEE WHAT

YOU'RE HAVING FOR

THANKSGIVING DINNER.

AND TAKE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY

YOU SPEND ON YOUR HOLIDAY,

WHETHER IT IS THANKSGIVING

OR CHRISTMAS, AND WRITE A

CHECK FOR THAT MUCH TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" TO HELP

THE POOR AND THE NEEDY.

AND IT WILL BE AMAZING HOW

MUCH BETTER YOUR

THANKSGIVING TURKEY WILL

TASTE WHEN YOU THINK I'M

HELPING SOMEBODY ELSE.

OKAY, NEXT.

Terry: UP NEXT, MOST

MINOR AMERICANS SHARE THIS

FEAR IN COMMON, THE FEAR OF

PUBLIC SPEAKING.

LEARN HOW TO LOSE THIS FEAR

AND MANY OTHERS.

IT'S ALL COMING UP NEXT.

STAY WITH US.

Terry: WOULD YOU BREAK

OUT IN A SWEAT IF YOU HAD TO

SPEAK BEFORE A GROUP OF

PEOPLE?

FOR YEARS, SHIRL BRADY DID.

SHE WAS IMPOSSIBLY SHY.

A HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT WHO

NEVER THOUGHT SHE WOULD BE

BE SPEAKING ON STAGE IN

FRONT OF 10,000 MEN.

Reporter: SHIRL BRADY

HAS GONE WHERE NO WOMAN HAS

GONE BEFORE.

IN 2010, SHE WAS THE

FEATURED CLOTHING SPEAKER AT

T.D. JAKES' ANNUAL MAN-POWER

SEMINAR.

SHE TELLS HOW SHE WENT FROM

A QUIET AND SHY PERSON TO AN

INTERNATIONAL SPEAKER IN HER

NEW BOOK "YOU HAVE IT IN

YOU."

Terry: CHERYL BRAD DEIS

Y IS

WITH YOU NOW.

HOW DID YOU GO FROM BEING

INCREDIBLY SHOW TO A

FEATURED SPEAKER?

IT IS WHAT THEY CALL A

MIRACLE.

OVER THE YEARS, I WATCHED

GOD PROGRESSIVELY REACH INTO

MY LIFE AND PULL OUT THINGS

ALL ALONG THE WAY I HAD NO

IDEA WAS THERE.

Terry: T.D. JAKES WAS

YOUR MENTOR.

HE IS AN AMAZING, POWERFUL

SPEAKER.

HOW DID THAT RELATIONSHIP

COME ABOUT?

I WALKED INTO A CHURCH IN

CLEVELAND, OHIO, ONE NIGHT

AND HE WAS THE SPEAKER.

I WAS TRYING TO BE COOL AND

CALM AND COLLECTED.

AND BY THE TIME HE GOT

FINISHED, I LITERALLY SAW

MYSELF ON THE FLOOR.

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS

THAT WAS AN EPIPHANY.

I BELIEVE GOD PERIODICALLY

WILL PULL DOWN THE CURTAINS

IN YOUR LIFE AND GIVE YOU A

GLIMPSE OF WHAT IS ON THE

OTHER SIDE.

AS I WATCHED HIM PREACH,

SOMETHING IN ME WAS GOING, I

CAN DO THIS.

I CAN DO THIS!

Terry: REALLY?

IS THAT CRAZY.

AND THE OTHER VOICE WAS

SAYING, DON'T EVEN TRY IT.

YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE A FOOL

OF YOURSELF.

BUT IN THAT MOMENT, I DIDN'T

KNOW WHAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT,

BUT I KNEW DESTINY --

Terry: SOMETHING ROSE

UP IN YOU.

-- PUNCHED ME IN THE GUT,

YES.

Terry: TALK TO ME ABOUT

THE CHALLENGES YOU HAD TO

OVERCOME AS GOOD OPENED

DOORS FOR YOU TO MOVE INTO

THE SPOTLIGHT.

WHAT WERE SOME OF THE

CHALLENGES?

I HAD TO GET OVER MY OWN

TIMIDITY AND SHYNESS, AND

WHAT OLD FOLKS CALL

BACKWARDNESS BECAUSE THAT'S

HOW I WAS.

BUT I WATCHED GOD.

AND I WATCHED HIM SIT ON MY

LIFE.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE SAT ON THE

EARTH.

AND I BELIEVE THE BIBLE SAYS

HE BROODED OVER THE EARTH.

IN OTHER WORDS, HE BROUGHT

THINGS OUT OF THE EARTH THAT

NO ONE KNEW WAS THERE.

AS HE BROODED, FISH BEGAN TO

SWIM AND BIRDS BEGAN TO

FLY.

AND I SAID, LORD, IF YOU SAT

ON THE EARTH BECAUSE THERE

WAS SOMETHING IN IT, SIT ON

MY EARTH AND BRING OUT OF ME

WHAT YOU HAVE IN ME.

I WATCHED HIM, LITTLE BY

LITTLE, WAKE UP THE GIFTS.

WITH A FATHER LIKE BISHOP

JAKES.

Terry: HE DOES THAT

OFTEN IN THE WORD, AND YOU

MENTION THAT IN SEVERAL

STORIES YOU TALK ABOUT IN

YOUR BOOK, FROM THE WORD,

WHERE GOD CHOOSES SOMEONE

WHO DIDN'T SEE THEMSELVES

QUALIFIED AS SOMETHING, AND

THEN GOD QUALIFIES THEM.

BUT THERE ARE OVERWHELMING

FEARS IN THAT.

HOW DO YOU OVERCOME FEARS?

THEY HOLD US BACK SO MUCH.

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT

THIS BACK STAGE.

YOU HAVE TO TRUST HIM.

WE SAY WE TRUST HIM.

WE SING ABOUT TRUSTING HIM.

BUT A AT THE END OF THE

DAY, WE HAVE TO TRUST HIM.

AND TAKING THE VOICES AND

MENTORS OF PEOPLE IN THE

LOVE THAT LOVE YOU ENOUGH TO

BE HONEST.

I SAY I'M TOO OLD TO GO

AFTER STUFF THAT DON'T HAVE

MY NAME ON IT.

I NEED TO SAVE MY ENERGY AND

MY STRENGTH.

HAVING GOOD VOICES IN YOUR

LIFE IS ALWAYS A BLESSING.

Terry: YOU SAY THAT

MOST OF US DON'T KNOW WHAT

GOD CREATED US FOR.

HOW DO WE FIND THAT?

I BELIEVE -- TAKE ME, FOR

INSTANCE, I WAS A HIGH

SCHOOL DROPOUT.

I WAS 15 YEARS OLD WHEN I

LEFT SCHOOL, JUST BECAUSE OF

CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES IN

LIFE.

I LOOK BACK OVER MY LIFE

NOW, AND I SEE IT IN

HINDSIGHT.

I FIND OUT THAT WHEN I'M 30,

I REALIZE THERE IS A

PREACHING GIFT IN ME.

I HAD NO IDEA THAT THAT WAS

THERE.

IN MY 40s, GOD BEGAN TO

WAKE UP THE PASTOR THAT WAS

IN ME.

AND IN MY 50s, NOW I'M

FINDING OUT THAT THERE IS AN

AUTHOR IN ME.

I BELIEVE DESTINY IS

TIME-RELEASED.

WHEN YOU'RE FAITHFUL OVER A

FEW THINGS, HE MAKES YOU

RULER OVER MANY.

Terry: AND HE GETS YOU

THERE OVER TIME.

HE DOES.

HE SAID TO ME ONE TIME,

CHERYL, I'M THE MAN IN YOUR

LIFE.

AND I SAID, YES, GOD, YOU'RE

THE MAN.

HE SAID, I DON'T THINK YOU

GET IT.

I'M THE MAN AND I WILL GET

EVERY DOOR FOR YOU.

AND THAT'S WHAT HE HAS

DONE.

Terry: WOW!

ONE OF THE THINGS YOU HAVE

DONE IS TO HEAR THE STILL,

SMALL VOICE THAT GOD SAYS HE

SPEAKS TO US IN.

HOW DO WE TRAIN OURSELVES,

CHERYL?

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO

TURN DOWN THE VOLUME OF LIFE

BECAUSE LIFE WILL BE SO

LOUD.

AND ALSO THE VOICES OF THE

MULTITUDE.

HE HOLDS OUR DESTINY.

HE KNOWS WHAT HE PUT IN ME

BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE

WORLD.

THINGS THAT I DIDN'T SEE

COMING HE KNEW WAS THERE.

SO I HAVE TO BE IN THAT

POSITION.

THE SONGWRITER USED TO SAY

HE WALKS WITH ME AND HE

TALKS WITH ME.

Terry: I USED TO SING

THAT SONG WITH MY GRANDMA.

AND IT'S THAT

RELATIONSHIP.

IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO HAVING

A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH

JESUS CHRIST.

Terry: YOU KNOW, GOD

WANTS TO CHALLENGE ALL OF US

TO BE AND TO DO WITH HIM IN

OUR LIVES.

TO HAVE THE KIND OF WALK

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, TO

HAVE THE KIND OF WALK YOU

WRITE ABOUT IN YOUR BOOK.

YOU HAVE IT IN YOU.

YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT

THIS.

IT IS HOW TO DO THE

IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE GOD WANTS

TO DO THAT THROUGH YOU.

THIS IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS OR SOLD.

AND WE HAVE A WEB EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW THAT WAS DONE WITH

CHERYL.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON

TO cbn.com, AND CLICK ON

THE "IN THE GREEN ROOM" LINK

AND GET AHOLD OF HER BOOK.

"YOU HAVE IT IN YOU."

WHAT AN AMAZING STORY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

IT IS AN ENCOURAGEMENT FROM

ALL OF US TO BE ALL THAT WE

CAN BE BECAUSE HE IS ALL

THAT WE NEED.

YES.

THANK YOU.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.
