TODAY, THE CROCKING GIRLS

RETURN TO SERVE UP A

SLOW-COOKED FALL FEAST.

AND THEN...

YOUR WORST FEAR, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN IT IS

HAPPENING.

Lee: A JOGGER IS

KIDNAPPED AND RAPED.

HE GRABBED ME AND THREW

ME TO THE GROUND.

Lee: HOW SHE SURVIVED

HER NIGHTMARE.

I THOUGHT FOR SURE I WAS

GOING TO BE KILLED.

Lee: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

HOPE YOU HAD A WONDERFUL

WEEKEND.

TODAY IS A HOLIDAY FOR A

NUMBER OF PEOPLE, AND IT IS

NOT A HOLIDAY FOR A NUMBER

OF OTHER PEOPLE.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

WE'RE SALUTING OUR

VETERANS.

Pat: WE SALUTE OUR

VETERANS, WHICH I AM ONE.

YOU AREN'T HEARING ABOUT IT

IN THE MEDIA, BUT A GROWING

NUMBER OF EUROPEANS ARE

WORRIED ABOUT THE RISE OF

RADICAL ISLAM IN THEIR

COUNTRIES.

THE LATEST EXAMPLE IS WHAT?

FRANCE.

Terry: THIS WEEKEND,

THE PEOPLE IN FRANCE HELD A

PATRIOTIC CONFERENCE FOR

CULTURE.

Reporter: THEY CHATTED

AGAINST ISLAMIC FASCISM.

IT WAS THE FIRST MARCH OF

ITS KIND IN FRANCE.

A WIDE COALITION IN

FRANCE HAVE COME TOGETHER

BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE

THEY'RE LOSING THEIR COUNTRY

TO RADICAL ISLAM, SHARI'A

LAW AND THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF

THE SPREAD OF ISLAM 6789.

> ISLAM.

SHARI'A LAW IS SLOWLY COMING

IN OUR COUNTRY.

THE FRENCH PEOPLE WANT TO

DEFEND THEIR HISTORY.

I THINK IT IS NOT ONLY A

PROBLEM OF FRANCE.

IT IS A PROBLEM OF EUROPE.

IT'S A PROBLEM, ALSO, OF THE

U.S.

Reporter: THERE WAS NO

VISIBLE

COUNTERDEMONSTRATION, BUT AN

EGG MANAGED TO HIT ONE

REPORTER.

I WAS JUST HIT WITH AN

EGG.

Reporter: THE MARCH

HAPPENED WEEKS AFTER A GROUP

STORMED A MOSQUE IN

PORTIER.

FRANCE HAS MORE MUSLIMS THAN

ANY OTHER NATION.

SOME BELIEVE THERE COULD BE

15 MILLION MUSLIMS IN

FRANCE.

A NOTED FRENCH WRITER HELPED

ORGANIZE THE MARCH.

WHAT I CALL IT IS A BIG

REPLACEMENT, A CHANGE OF

POPULATION, IS THE BIGGEST

THING WHICH HAS HAPPENED IN

FRENCH HISTORY SINCE 15th

CENTURY.

Reporter: THE LEFTEST

FRENCH MEDIA IGNORED THE

DEMONSTRATION, VIEWING IT AS

RACIST, BUT IT IS CLEAR THE

MOVEMENT TO RESIST RADICAL

ISLAM IS GROWING IN FRANCE.

DALE HERD, CBN NEWS, PARIS.

Pat: IT BETTER GROW.

THERE ARE CERTAIN SO-CALLED

BONIERS, WHO ARE OUT OF

CONTROL.

THE PLACE CAN'T EVEN GO INTO

THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE

DOMINATED BY THE MUSLIMS.

ANYHOW, WHAT DO THEY SAY?

"TOO SOON OLD AND TOO LATE

SMART."

THEY'VE HAD WARNINGS FOR

YEARS AND YEARS, AND THEY'RE

FINALLY WAKING UP, BUT IT IS

PROBABLY TOO LATE.

HERE AT HOME, CONGRESS IS

TRYING TO DEAL WITH A VERY

DEPRESSING PROBLEM, AND IT

IS CALLED THE FISCAL CLIFF.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS THAT

STORY.

Wendy: PAT, MEMBERS

FROM BOTH PARTIES AND

CONGRESS SAY THEY BELIEVE A

DEAL IS POSSIBLE TO PREVENT

WASHINGTON FROM GOING OFF

THAT SO-CALLED FISCAL CLIFF

ON JANUARY 1st.

IF CONGRESS AND THE WHITE

HOUSE DON'T REACH AN

AGREEMENT ON THE FEDERAL

BUDGET, MAJOR TAX HIKES AND

SOME SPENDING CUTS WILL

AUTOMATICALLY GO INTO

EFFECT.

SEVERAL CONGRESS SAY THEY

DIDN'T HAVE TO HAPPEN.

I CERTAINLY HOPE WE DON'T

KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD.

WE'VE HAD TWO DRY ROADS, AND

NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

I SPENT FIVE YEARS TRYING

TO PUT TOGETHER A PACKAGE IN

A BIPARTISAN WAY TO GET US

BACK ON A SOUND FISCAL

COURSE.

Wendy: PRESIDENT OBAMA

AND HOUSE LEADER BOEHNER

HEAD THEY ARE OPEN TO

COMPROMISE.

BUT SOME STICKING POINTS

REMAIN, INCLUDING HOW TO

BRING IN MORE MONEY AND

TAXES FROM HIGH-INCOME

AMERICANS.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO RAISE

TAX RATES.

PAT, CAN THEY AVOID THAT

FISCAL CLIFF?

Pat: THEY'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO, WENDY.

THEY'VE GOT NO CHOICE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE

TRUTH IS, BEFORE GEORGE BUSH

STARTED PUTTING THROUGH HIS

TAX PROPOSALS, WE WERE

PAYING 28% ON CAPITAL

GAINS.

WE WERE PAYING, YOU KNOW, ON

ORDINARY INCOME, ON

DIVIDENDS, WE WERE PAYING

STANDARD TAX RATES.

SO WE HAD A CUT DOWN TO 15%

ON BOTH OF THEM, AND NOW THE

IDEA IS WE SHOULD GET THE

CAPITAL GAINS BACK UP TO

28%.

IF YOU GET IT BACK THE WAY

IT WAS, IT IS NOT THE END OF

THE WORLD.

WE LIVED AS A COUNTRY BEFORE

THAT, AND WE'LL LIVE AS A

COUNTRY BEYOND THAT.

BUT WHAT IT IS GOING TO DO,

IT WILL BE A BODY BLOW TO

THE STOCK MARKET, BECAUSE

PEOPLE WHO BOUGHT STOCKS

THINKING THEY WERE GOING TO

GET LOW TAX DIVIDENDS WILL

CERTAINLY THINK THEY'VE GOT

THE WRONG DIVIDENDS.

AND SO PEOPLE ARE NOW

DUMPING THE SECURITIES AHEAD

OF THE END OF THE YEAR,

WHICH IS HAVING SOME EFFECTS

ON THE MARKETS.

HEY, WE'LL LIVE THROUGH IT.

WE'VE BEEN THROUGH A LOT OF

THESE THINGS, AND WE'LL LIVE

THROUGH THIS ONE.

BUT THIS WHOLE IDEA OF ROVER

NORQUEST, YOU CA CAN'T HAVE

ANY TAX INCREASES, BUT YOU

HAVE TO HAVE SOME TAX

INCREASES.

THE QUESTION IS: HOW DO YOU

DO IT?

WE NEED A WHOLE NEW TAX

CODE.

WE NEED TO GET RID OF THESE

CRAZY REGULATIONS.

I UNDERSTAND, WHAT IS IT,

ABOUT 1100 OF THEM A DAY

THAT ARE COMING DOWN THAT IS

GOING TO BE IMPOSED ON

BUSINESSES.

UNBELIEVABLE WHAT HAS BEEN

LOOSE.

THESE PEOPLE LIKE MONSTER

GETTING READY TO GOBBLE OF

THE PRIVATE SECTOR.

WENDY, I HOPE THEY'RE NOT

AFTER YOU.

Wendy: NOT THAT I KNOW

OF.

THANKS.

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS ARE

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS TO

QUESTIONS SURROUNDING THE

RESIGNATION OF DAVID

PETRAEUS FROM THE C.I.A.

MANY WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE

WHITE HOUSE KNEW AND WHEN.

AND THEN THERE IS A TIMING

OF THE DAVI DAVID PETRAEUS'

RESIGNATION, IT COMES WHEN

HE WAS ABOUT TO TESTIFY

ABOUT THE TERRORIST ATTACK

THAT KILLED FOUR AMERICANS.

WE HAVE

TO GET TO GET TO

THE BECOME OF BENGHAZI.

WE HAVE FOUR DEAD AMERICANS

IN BENGHAZI.

WE HAVE A NATIONAL SECURITY

FAILING IN THE MAKING.

I DON'T SEE HOW YOU CAN

HAPPEN IN BENGHAZI BEFORE,

DURING, AND AFTER THE

ATTACK, THE GENERAL DOESN'T

TESTIFY.

Wendy: THE ACTING

C.I.A. DIRECTOR WILL TESTIFY

ABOUT BENGHAZI IN A

CLOSED-HEARING ON THURSDAY.

PAT, THIS IS JUST A HUGE

MESS.

Pat: I HOPE HIS

RESIGNATION DOESN'T HAVE

ANYTHING TO DO WITH

BENGHAZI.

I DON'T THINK HE IS A

DEVIOUS HUMAN BEING.

HE IS A BRILLIANT MAN.

HE HAS A Ph.D. FROM

PRINCETON.

AND HIS ANALYSIS OF

COUNTERINSURGENCY IS A

TEXTBOOK FOR THE WHOLE

MILITARY.

WE'LL SADLY MISS A MAN LIKE

THAT.

AND HOW HE WAS DURING THE

C.I.A., NOBODY KNOWS BECAUSE

HE HASN'T BEEN INTEGRATED

THERE LONG ENOUGH.

IT IS AMAZING THAT THE

AFFAIRS OF THE HEART SEEM TO

CATCH THESE GUYS.

THIS IS A FORM -- HE IS A

LIEUTENANT COLONEL.

SHE IS AN EXTREMELY

GOOD-LOOKING WOMAN.

SHE IS A MARATHON RUNNER.

SHE RUNS IRONMAN TRIATHLONS,

AND SO SHE IS OUT RUNNING

WITH HIM AND SHE IS WRITING

A BIOGRAPHY.

I THINK THE TERM IS "PRO

"PROPINQUITY."

AND WHO KNOWS.

THE MAN IS OFF IN A FOREIGN

LAND AND HE IS LONELY, AND

HERE IS A GOOD-LOOKING LADY

THROWING HERSELF AT HIM --

HE'S A MAN.

I DON'T KNOW IF PEOPLE FELT

HE SHOULDN'T HAVE RESIGNED

IF IT DIDN'T AFFECT HIS

WORK.

AS SOMEBODY SAID, THINK WHAT

WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT WOULD

HAVE RESIGNED DURING WORLD

WAR II BECAUSE HE HAD

AFFAIRS.

LYNDON B. JOHNSON HAD SERIAL

AFFAIRS, AND YOU GO DOWN THE

LINE, AND IT IS JUST THE WAY

IT IS.

I DON'T CONDONE SEXUAL

IMMORTALITY, BUT AT THE SAME

TIME, I DON'T THINK IT

SHOULD BE NECESSARILY A

DISQUAQUALIFICATION FOR

SOMEBODY WHO HEADS THE

C.I.A.

HE IS OUT.

WENDY?

Wendy: THE DEADLY

FIGHTING INTO SYRIA HAS

SPILLED OVER INTO ISRAEL.

ANOTHER MORTER SHELL FROM

SYRIA ACCIDENTALLY LANDED IN

ISRAELI TERRITORY TODAY ON

THE GOLAN HEIGHTS.

ISRAEL HAS MADE IT CLEAR IT

WON'T STAND FOR ANY MILITARY

FIRE HITTING ITS LAND.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: ON SUNDAY,

ISRAEL FIRED A WARNING SHOT

INTO SYRIA, AFTER A SYRIAN

MORTER LANDED IN THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS.

WE UNDERSTAND THIS WAS A

MISTAKE.

THIS IS WHY WE ACTUALLY

FIRED WARNING SHOTS IN

RETALIATION.

Reporter: IT MARKED THE

FIRST TIME SINCE THE 1973

YOM KIPPUR WAR THAT ISRAEL

HAD FIRED INTO SYRIA.

ISRAEL WILL DO EVERYTHING

THAT IS NEEDED IN ORDER TO

BRING SAFETY TO THE PEOPLE

OF THE ISRAEL AND THOSE

LIVING IN OUR COUNTRY.

ORY ON ISRAEL'S SOUTHERN

BORDER, MORE THAN 120

ROCKETS LANDED IN TOWNS LIKE

STEROTS ON SATURDAY.

ISRAEL OFFICIALS BLAMED

HAMAS, WHO CONTROLS THE GAZA

STRIP, AND THREATENED TO

ESCALATE THEIR MILITARY

RESPONSE.

THE HAMAS CHIEF THINKS

THEY CANNOT HIDE.

THEY'LL HAVE TO BE A TARGET

THEMSELVES, UNTIL THOSE

THINGS ARE OVER.

Reporter: WHILE THE

ROCKET ATTACKS SHOCK ISRAELI

RESIDENTS.

HE SAYS THE ISRAELI

RESIDENTS HAVE UNDURED THE

SITUATION FOR YEARS.

OVER THE DECADES, PEOPLE

HAVE BECOME ACCEPTABLE.

THEY AREN'T EVEN AWARE THAT

ROCKETS HAVE BEEN FIRED.

THAT IS THE ABSURD.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, ISRAEL.

Wendy: THAT'S INTEREST,

THE FIRST TIME SHOTS HAVE

BEEN FIRED INTO SYRIA SINCE

1973.

Pat: I DON'T ISRAEL

WANTS A WAR WITH SYRIA, OR

SYRIA WANTS A WAR WITH

ISRAEL.

BUT THEY'VE GOT TURKEY ON

THE OTHER BORDER GIVING THEM

TROUBLE.

SYRIA NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN

A COUNTRY.

THE ALAWITES WERE THE ONE

SMALL GROUP THAT HAS CLAIMED

POWER.

THEY'RE A SUNNI GROUP, BUT

THEY DON'T REPRESENT ALL OF

THE PEOPLE.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN GAZA,

THEY TALK ABOUT LAND FOR

PEACE, LAND FOR PEACE, LAND

FOR PEACE.

AERIAL SHARON GAVE AWAY THE

GAZA.

HE GAVE AWAY THINKING IT HAS

BEEN A MOVE TOWARDS PEACE.

AND INSTEAD OF THAT, IT HAS

BEEN A MOVE TOWARD WAR

BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN FILLED

UP WITH HAMAS, BE AND IT HAS

BEEN USED AS A STAGING

GROUND.

SO GIVING UP LAND DOESN'T DO

IT.

WENDY?

Wendy: PAT, HERE AT

HOME, THE NORTHEAST IS

SHIFTING FROM RECOVERY TO

REBUILDING AFTER SUPERSTORM

SANDY.

AUTHORITIES WARNED THE

PROCESS WILL TAKE TIME, BUT

POWER OUTAGES AND FUEL

SHORTAGES HAVE TEMPERS

WEARING THIN.

BUT UNITY AS VOLUNTEERS FROM

COUNTRY THACROSS THE

COUNTRY OFFER SUPPORT.

Reporter: NEARLY TWO

WEEKS AFTER SUPERSTORM

SANDY, MORE THAN 70P

COSTUMERS AR70 -- 70,000

COSTUMERS ARE STILL WITHOUT

POWER.

IT IS NOT EVEN ANGER

NOW.

NOW IT IS JUST BROKEN

PEOPLE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

NEW YORKERS FACED ANOTHER

DAY OF FUEL RATIONING.

MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG

TRYING TO CUT DOWN ON THE

LINE AT GAS STATIONS BY

IMPLEMENTING AN EVEN-ODD

SYSTEM.

THAT MEANS GAS IS AVAILABLE

ONE DAY TO DRIVERS WITH

LICENSE PLATE NUMBERS ENDING

IN AN ODD NUMBER, AND THE

NEXT DAY FOR LICENSE PLATES

ENDING IN AN EVEN NUMBER.

IT WENT A LOT FASTER.

Reporter: AND THERE

WERE AREAS WERE HOMES WERE

DESTROYED, AND IN SOME

PLACES ACTUALLY WASHED

AWAY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS ON

SITE IN THOSE AREAS.

VOLUNTEERS ARE DISTRIBUTING

MUCH-NEEDED SUPPLIES, HOT

MEALS, AND HELPING RESIDENTS

CLEAN OUT THEIR HOMES.

I NEVER KNEW WHAT YOU

PEOPLE DID, AND NOW I'M ONE

OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO NEED THE

HELP.

AND ALL THESE YEARS I'VE

DONATED FOR OTHER PEOPLE,

AND NOW I'M ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE WHO NEEDS THE

DONATION.

I THANK GOD FOR

"OPERATION BLESSING" COMING

OUT TO DONATE FOOD,

BLANKETS, THAT WE SO NEED

BECAUSE THE SUPERMARKETS

AROUND HERE ARE VERY

LIMITED.

THIS IS A CASE WHERE

WE'RE ACTUALLY LIKE

SEPTEMBER 11TH, WE'RE

RELYING ON HELP FROM

OTHERS.

AND I'M SPEAKING FOR PEOPLE

RIGHT HERE, THE YOUNG MEN

AND WOMEN ON YOUR TEAM, AND

SO I THANK YOU.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: PAT, MY HEART

GOES OUT.

ESPECIALLY THAT LADY WHO

SAYS SHE IS ONE OF THE

PEOPLE WHO NEEDS THE HELP.

I'M SO GLAD "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS THERE.

Pat: WE'RE COVERING

THAT WHOLE AREA.

I UNDERSTAND WE'VE BEEN

ASKED TO COORDINATE THE

VOLUNTEERS IN THE BREEZY

POINT THING, WHICH IS SO

BADLY HIT.

WE'RE WORKING IN FAR AWAY

RO ROCKAWAY AND IN STATEN

ISLAND WITH FOOD

DISTRIBUTION.

PEOPLE DESPERATELY NEED

HELP, AND WE'VE BEEN

HELPING.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE,

IT IS DISASTER RELIEF, CBN

CENTER, VIRGINIA BEACH,

VIRGINIA, 26343, OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

YOU WISH YOU CAN DO MORE,

BUT WE'RE DOING WHAT WE CAN,

AND YOUR PARTICIPATION IS

VIOLENT.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ABOUT AS EFFICIENT A CHARITY

AS THERE IS IN AMERICA.

AND THE FUNDS THAT ARE

DONATED GET TO WHERE THEY'RE

SUPPOSED TO GO.

AND IT'S REALLY VERY, VERY

IMPORTANT.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, WE'VE GOT

SOME GOOD NEWS.

COMING UP -- THIS ISN'T THE

GOOD NEWS.

BUT COMING UP, AN

UNBELIEVABLE STORY, A CHURCH

IS TORN TO THE GROUND.

NOT ONLY DID THE POLICE NOT

STOP IT, BUT THEY WERE THE

VERY ONES WHO HELPED WITH

THE DEMOLITION.

YOU'LL SEE WHY.

AND THEN, LATER, SINCE THE

WEATHER IS GETTING COLDER --

THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS --

WE'RE GOING TO BE HEATING UP

WITH A CROCKPOT.

AND KRISTIN DOHERTY, YOU'RE

GOING TO BE COOKING WITH US

AND THE CROOK POT GIRLS.

SHE HAD NO IDEA THIS WAS

GOING TO HAPPEN.

SO STICK WITH US.

Pat: HOW DOES THIS ONE

GRAB YOU?

DOZENS OF MEN WITH HEAVY

EQUIPMENT RECENTLY ATTACKED

AND DEMOLISHED A PENTECOSTAL

CHURCH, AND THE POLICE

SIMPLY STOOD BY AND

WATCHED.

THE ASSAULT TOOK PLACE

OUTSIDE MOSCOW.

AND IT'S RAISING CONCERNS

THAT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS

FADING IN RUSSIA.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THAT

AMAZING STORY.

IT IS DIFFICULT FOR THEM

TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED

THE NIGHT OF DECEMBER 6,

2011.

WHAT THEY DID WAS NOT

RIGHT.

WE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TIME TO

SAVE THE BIBLES.

Reporter: ON A RECENT

MORNING ON THE EDGE OF

MOSCOW, THIS 12-YEAR-OLD AND

A HANDFUL OF HER FRIENDS

HELD SUNDAY SCHOOL ON THE

STEPS OF WHAT USED TO BE THE

ENTRANCE OF THEIR CHURCH.

I WANT THE PEOPLE WHO DID

THIS TO KNOW, I STILL LOVE

CHRIST AND I'M GOING TO PRAY

FOR THEM IN OUR COUNTRY.

Reporter: IN THE EARLY

HOURS OF THAT SEPTEMBER

MORNING, ABOUT 45 MEN,

BACKED BY LOCAL RUSSIAN

POLICE, DESCENDED ON HOLY

TRINITY PENTECOSTAL CHURCH.

I GOT HERE ABOUT 4 A.M.

AND SAW TWO LARGE EXCAVATORS

TEARING THROUGH THE CHURCH

BUILDING.

Reporter: AS WORD

SPREAD, OTHER CHURCH MEMBERS

RUSHED TO TRY TO SAVE THE

CHURCH.

I'LL NEVER FORGET THE

SOUND OF MY CHURCH BEING

CRUSHED.

IT WAS SO PAINFUL.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

ALSO TRIED TO STOP THE MEN,

BUT IT WAS TOO LATE.

THIS IS VIDEO OF HIM THAT

NIGHT.

WHEN I TRIED TO GET INTO

THE TERRITORY, I WAS STOPPED

BY DRUNK, TOUGH GUYS, WHO

INTRODUCED THEMSELVES AS A

VIGILANT GROUP ACTING ON

BEHALF OF THE CITY

DISTRICT.

THEY REFUSED TO SHOW THEIR

I.D.s AND PAPERS.

Reporter: BY 3 A.M.,

THE THREE-STORY BUILDING WAS

IN RUINS.

UNFORTUNATELY, WHAT WE'RE

SEEING TODAY IS NOTHING

NEW.

FOR DECADES, EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS IN RUSSIA HAVE

EXPERIENCED SIMILAR OR

WORSE.

Reporter: HOLY TRINITY

PENTECOSTAL CHURCH BECAME

REGISTERED IN THE 1970s.

IN 1995, THE CHURCH WAS

FORCED OUT OF HIS ORIGINAL

BUILDING AND MOVED TO THIS

SITE SOME 45 MINUTES OUTSIDE

MOSCOW.

THE CHURCH ERECTED A

TEMPORARY BUILDING, BUT

BATTLED AUTHORITIES OVER

BUILDING PERMITS.

FOR 17 YEARS THE CITY EVEN

PREVENTED THE CHURCH ACCESS

TO WATER AND ELECTRICITY.

THEN IN LATE AUGUST, 2012, A

DISTRICT OFFICIAL NOTIFIED

ROMAN NEUTE THAT THE CHURCH

WAS SLATED FOR DEMOLITION.

THIS MAN RUNS A CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY IN MOSCOW.

THEY HAVE CHOOSE SEN, IN

FRONT OF THE ENTIRE COUNTRY,

IN FRONT OF THE WORLD, IN

MOSCOW, IN THE CAPITAL, JUST

TO LEVEL THE EVANGELICAL

CHURCH, MAKING THAT

STATEMENT.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

THE COUNTRY'S CONSTITUTION

CLEARLY STATES THAT ALL

RELIGIONS ARE EQUAL BEFORE

THE LAW, THE GOVERNMENT IS

OFTEN ACCUSED OF

DISCRIMINATING AGAINST

CITIZENS WHO PROFESS FAITH

OTHER THAN ORTHODOX

CHRISTIANITY.

THE GOVERNMENT AND THE

ORTHODOX CHURCH VIEW US

EVANGELICALS AS A THREAT.

THEY SEE OUR CONGREGATIONS

GROWING, AND THEY SEE HOW

DYNAMIC OUR SERVICES ARE AND

THEY'RE THREATENED BY IT.

Reporter: A LEADING

HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER IN

MOSCOW SAYS HOLY TRINITY

CHALLENGES ARE LEGAL

PROPERTIES ARE PART OF A

CHALLENGE FOR EVANGELICALS.

BECOME LINE, THIS IS

DISCRIMINATION.

THIS YEAR ALONE, THE

GOVERNMENT HAS GIVEN THE

RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH 200

PERMITS.

Reporter: AND WHAT EF

CULLS AR EVANGELICALS, MOST

CONCERNED ABOUT IS THEY

ACCUSE VLADIMIR PUTIN OF

TEARING DOWN WALLS BETWEEN

CHURCH AND STATE.

YOU WILL NEVER HEAR OF AN

ORTHODOX CHURCH BEING

BULLDOZED AND RANSACKED IN

THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

Reporter: BACK ON THE

GROUNDS OF HOLY TRINITY,

ROMAN NEUTE AND THE

CONGREGATION ARE PRESSING

FORWARD.

THEY'RE HOLDING WEEKLY

SERVICES IN A LARGE TENT

NEXT TO THE DEMOLISHED

CHURCH.

THERE ARE REPORTS THAT THE

CITY WANTS TO TURN THE LAND

INTO A LARGE SPORTS

COMPLEX.

I NEVER IMAGINED IN MY

LIFE I WOULD GO THROUGH SUCH

AN EXPERIENCE.

BUT TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I

FEEL EMBOLDENED AND FULL OF

HOPE, THANKS TO PRAYERS FROM

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD.

Reporter: 12-YEAR-OLD

SVETA IS HOPEFUL.

SINCE THIS HAPPENED, I

HAVE BEEN ASKING GOD TO GIVE

US ANOTHER PLACE THAT WE CAN

SHARE WITH OTHERS.

I KNOW GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF

US.

Pat: IT IS AN OPEN

SECRET THAT DURING THE COLD

WAR THAT THE ORTHODOX CHURCH

WAS ACTUALLY A BRANCH OF THE

K.G.B.

ARCHBISHOP NIKIDINE, THE

HEAD OF THE CHURCH, WAS

APPARENTLY THE HEAD OF THE

K.G.B.

THE TIES HAVE BEEN CLOSE,

AND PUTIN HAS DRAWN THEM

CLOSER TOGETHER NOW THAT HE

IS IN.

BECAUSE THE CHURCH IS A

WILLING HAND MAID, IF YOU

WILL, OF THE GOVERNMENT.

AND THEY'RE LABELLED AS

CUTS.

THEY HAVE A LAW ABOUT CUTS.

SOMEHOW THE BAPTIST TISTING

ARE GETTING AWAY WITH SOME

OF IT, BUT THE PENTECOSTALS

DON'T HAVE THE STANDING.

IT IS A SHAME BECAUSE IT

LOOKED LIKE THE RUSSIAN

CHURCH AND THE RUSSIAN

SOCIETY WAS OPENING UP TO

CHRISTIANITY.

AND IT WAS A VERY

ENCOURAGING THING.

I WAS OVER THERE, AND THERE

WAS A GREAT DEAL OF

FREEDOM.

AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN

THIS THING HAS DESCENDED

LIKE A DARK BLANKET, AND WE

JUST NEED TO PRAYE PRAY FOR

OUR FELLOW CHRISTIANS IN

THAT SOCIETY.

BUT THIS IS ONLY ONE PLACE

AROUND THE GLOBE, AND THERE

ARE MANY, MANY OTHERS, WHERE

CHRISTIANS ARE SUFFERING AND

BEING PERSECUTED.

PRAY FOR THOSE PEOPLE, THEY

NEED YOUR PRAYERS AND YOUR

LOVE.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, WE

HAVE A

FALL FEAST

FOR THE

FOOTBALL FAN.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU

SIMPLE WAYS TO COOK A HEARTY

AND HEALTHY MEAL.

AND THEN, DON'T FORGET,

WE'RE GOING TO BE COOKING

WITH ONE OF OUR AUDIENCE

MEMBERS.

WE HAVE SCOOPED HER OUT OF

THE AUDIENCE.

SHE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT

THIS.

THERE IS KRISTIN DOHERTY,

WHO IS GETTING ALL DOLLED UP

FOR THE KITCHEN.

AND WE'RE GOING TO COOK SOME

AMAZING THINGS WITH THE

CROOKING GIRLS.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE BACK.

STILL AHEAD...ONE OUT OF

EVERY SIX AMERICANS HAS BEEN

SEXUALLY ASSAULTED.

THIS IS MY WORST FEAR AND

IT IS HAPPENING TO ME RIGHT

NOW.

THESE WOMEN ARE AMONG

THEM.

I THOUGHT AT THAT TIME,

FOR SURE I WAS GOING TO BE

KILLED.

WHY THEY'RE SHARING THEIR

STORY.

I HEARD HIM SAY, I'M

GOING TO WORK THIS OUT FOR

GOOD.

AND THEIR MESSAGE OF

HOPE.

ONLY GOD CAN DO THAT.

ONLY HE CAN DO THAT.

Terry: GETTING READY

FOR THE BIG GAME?

WELL, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED A

TV, A COMFY CHAIR, AND A

CROOK POT OR THREE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: WHETHER

YOU'RE PLAYING A FRIENDLY

GAME OF FOOTBALL OR WATCHING

IT ON TV, THERE IS NOTHING

LIKE TASTY TREATS TO SATISFY

HEARTY APPETITES.

FROM APPETIZERS TO MAIN

MEALS, THE CROOKING GIRLS

HAVE STRESS-FREE RECIPES FOR

YOUR CROCKPOT.

YOU'LL SERVE CROWD-PLEASING

FINGER FOODS GUARANTEED.

Terry: WELL, THE

CROCKING GIRLS ARE WITH US.

NICOLE AND JENNA.

LADIES, WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THANK YOU.

WE'RE SO EXCITED TO BE

BACK.

Terry: YOU STARTED THIS

NOT BECAUSE YOU LOVED

CROCKPOTS SO MUCH,

BUT OUT

OF NECESSITY, REALLY.

TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU GOT

STARTED.

WE'RE JUST MOMMIES TRYING

TO BRING A HOME-COOKED MEAL

TO THE TABLE, AND THAT'S

WHAT OUR

SLOW COOKER HELPED

US DO.

Terry: TELL ME WHY FALL

IS A GREAT TIME FOR THE

CROCKPOT.

IN AUGUST SCHOOL STARTS,

AND YOU DON'T STOP UNTIL THE

HOLIDAYS.

IT

IS ALWAYS NICE TO HAVE

SOMETHING COOKING WHEN YOU

GET HOME.

Terry: AND IT SMELLS SO

GREAT WHEN YOU GET HOME?

YES.

AND YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'VE

DONE SOMETHING FOR YOUR

FAMILY INSTEAD OF STOPPING

FOR FAST FOOD.

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS MY FAMILY LIKES IS

MEATBALLS, LET'S TALK ABOUT

THAT.

WE LOVE US SOME

MEATBALLS.

THESE ARE SIMPLE MEATBALLS,

YOU BASICALLY CAN COOK THEM

IN YOUR SLOW COOKER ON LOW.

FOR A GOOD TIME THROUGHOUT

THE PARTY.

AND JUST HAVE A LITTLE

APPETIZER ON EVEN HAVE A

MEATBALL SANDWICH.

Terry: WHAT HAVE YOU

DONE WITH THEM?

THIS IS JUST GROUND BEEF?

YES.

JUST GROUND BEEF.

WE HAVE A COUPLE OF

RECIPES IN OUR COOKBOOK FOR

DIFFERENT TYPES OF RECIPES.

YOU CAN DO HOME MADE

MEATBALLS OR YOU CAN ADD

FROZEN THINGS.

THESE DON'T HAVE ANY MAR

MARINARA, BUT IF THEY WERE

LEFT OVER, I WOULD ADD

MARINARA AN FOR A SUB

SANDWICH.

Terry: AT THIS TIME, WE

WANT TO BRING OUT ONE OF THE

MEMBERS OF OUR AUDIENCE, WHO

IS A BIG FAN OF YOU LADIES.

SHE HAS BEEN USING HER

RECIPES, I UNDERSTAND, IN

HER OWN KITCHEN.

KRISTIN DOHERTY, COME ON

IN.

WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR

BEING HERE.

YOU'RE A TRUE CROCKING

GIRL?

I AM.

Terry: AND NOW SHE IS A

TV HOST.

YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING YOU

WANT KRISTIN TO HELP YOU.

WE DO.

THESE ARE BACON-WRAPPED

SMOKIES.

YOU TAKE BACON AND CUT IT

INTO THIRDS.

AND YOU

TAKE THE LITTLE

SMOKIES AND JUST WRAP THEM

UP.

THESE ARE -- MY KIDS LOVE

THESE, OF COURSE.

THEY LOVE LITTLE SMOKIES.

AND THEY ARE GREAT.

SO YOU JUST ROLL THEM UP AND

STICK THEM WITH A TOOTHPICK

AND THEN JUST PUT THEM INTO

THE SLOW COOKER, AND TOPPED

WITH BROWN SUGAR.

Terry: YOU'RE GOING TO

KEEP DOING THESE, AND YOU

HAVE ANOTHER WONDERFUL

RECIPE, I THINK, FOR THE

FALL.

BARBECUED CHICKEN SLIDERS.

THEY SOUND GOOD.

THESE ARE ONE OF THOSE

THINGS YOU CAN MAKE AN

APPETIZER SPREAD INTO A

MEAL.

IT IS A LITTLE MORE HARDY.

THE BEAUTY OF IT IS A DUMP

AND GO RECIPE.

YOU HAVE THE CHICKEN, YOU

PUT YOUR SAUCE IN.

THIS CAN STAY ON WARM.

THAT'S WHAT IS GREAT ABOUT

ALL OF THIS.

WHEN WE'RE HOSTING THE

PARTY, WE DON'T WANT TO BE

IN THE KITCHEN.

WE WANT TO BE SOCIALIZING.

Terry: HERE, HERE.

AND YOU HAVE ALL OF YOUR

TOPPINGS WHERE THEY CAN PUT

WHAT THEY WANT ON IT.

Terry: AND YOU ARE GOOD

TO GO.

AND EASY.

YOU CAN DO ALL OF THIS AHEAD

OF TIME.

NO HEAVY WORK IN THE KITCHEN

ONCE YOUR GUESTS ARE THERE.

WONDERFUL.

BEAUTIFUL.

LOOK AT HOW THE PRESENTATION

IS UP HERE.

IT IS A PRETTY MEAL.

YES.

WE LOVE DOING SPREADS AND

HAVING IT ALL OUT FOR

EVERYBODY WHEN THEY COME.

Terry: WHAT'S THESE?

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU A

FEW DIPS HERE.

THIS ONE WE'RE MAKING IS A

BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP.

I LOVE SPICY.

IT'S NOT NICOLE'S FAVORITE,

BUT MAYBE THE CREAM CHEESE

AND THE DRESSING WILL MAKE

THAT MILDER.

SHE KNOWS ME TOO WELL.

WE'RE GOING TO PUT ALL OF

THESE INGREDIENTS IN.

EVERYTHING GOES IN.

Terry: EVERYTHING GOES

IN.

BUFFALO JUST SCREAMS

FOOTBALL, THE SPORTS FOOD.

THIS IS A BUFFALO SAUCE.

JUST A WING SAUCE.

WE HAVE BLUE CHEESE

CRUMBLES, AND I THREW IN

SOME CELERY, AND THAT'S A

BLUE CHEESE DRESSING.

Terry: WOW!

WOW!

WE ACTUALLY HAVE IT

SERVED ON CELERY.

YOU CAN COMBINE ALL OF

THESE, OR YOU CAN WAIT UNTIL

THE END.

YOU'RE BASICALLY GOING TO

COOK THIS ON LOW UNTIL IT IS

HEATED THROUGH AND

EVERYTHING IS MELTED.

Terry: OKAY.

YOU CAN SERVE THIS WITH

CHIPS, BUT I THINK IT LOOKS

GREAT --

Terry: THERE IS A BIT

HERE, AND YOU PIT I -- PUT

IT IN HE'S LITTLE BITS OF

CELERY.

THAT IS TASTY.

YOU HAVE THE SPINACH

ARTICHOKE AND IT LOOKS GREAT

IN A SERVING BOWEL.

AND HOPEFULLY YOU'RE TEAM

WINS.

Terry: WE ALL HOPE

THAT.

WE HAVE EVERYTHING YOU CAN

CONCEIVABLY NEED FOR ANY

SUPER BOWL OR SUPER BOWL

PARTY.

DO YOU GET YOUR CROCKPOTS

ALL GOING AT THE SAME TIME?

YES.

WE HAVE QUITE A BIT BETWEEN

US.

SO ANY TIME YOU CAN WALK

INTO OUR HOME AND WE HAVE

CROCKS GOING.

Terry: THAT IS USING IT

FOR EVERYTHING.

KRISTIN, WHAT YOU DO LIKE

THE MOST ABOUT SLOW

COOKING?

THAT I DON'T HAVE TO COOK

IN MY OVEN.

IT IS THE ONLY WAY THAT I

COOK, REALLY.

Terry: REALLY?

SO IT IS A DAILY EVENT AT

YOUR HOUSE?

IT IS.

IT IS JUST MY HUSBAND AND I,

BUT I COOK THREE TO FOUR

TIMES A WEEK AND THEN WE

HAVE LEFTOVERS.

I HAVE EIGHT CROCKPOTS.

Terry: EIGHT?

DO YOU GUYS HAVE EIGHT?

WE HAVE PROBABLY, NOW --

WE JUST GOT A FEW MORE, WE

PROBABLY HAVE ABOUT 32

BETWEEN BOTH OF US.

IT IS A PROBLEM.

IT IS LIKE SHOES, WE JUST

KEEP ADDING TO OUR

SELECTIONS.

Terry: THEY COME IN ALL

SIZES, SHAPES, AND COLORS.

THEY DO.

Terry: KRISTIN, WE ARE

GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE AND

YOU WERE ABLE TO MEET THE

GIRLS AND HELP THEM.

I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT

SOMETHING AWESOME, AS PART

OF OUR PARTING GIFT, JENNA

AND NICOLE ARE GOING TO GIVE

TO OUR GUESTS A FEW GOODIES

AND A SIGNED COPY OF THEIR

BOOK.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU CAN

GET THEIR COOKBOOK IN STORES

NATIONWIDE, AND IT IS CALLED

"THE CROCKING GIRLS' SLOW

COOKING COMPANION."

AND IT IS FILLED WITH

AWESOME RECIPES.

I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THIS,

AND IT IS REALLY FUN.

THIS IS A NEW MAGAZINE

RELEASING LOTS OF THEIR

RECIPES CALLED "CROCKING FOR

THE HOLIDAYS."

THERE IS NOT A PAGE IN HERE

THAT DOESN'T HAVE AN

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME RECIPE

FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES.

YOU CAN PICK ONE UP.

GO TO crockinggirls.com

AND YOU'LL HAVE LOTS OF TEAM

TO PLAN YOUR HOLIDAY MEALS.

FUN, FUN, FUN.

WE'RE GOING TO BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

SO STAY WITH US.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYONE, TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THE MOHAVE DESERT MEMORIAL

CROSS WAS RESTORED ON

SUNDAY.

IT WAS ORIGINALLY ERECTED

BACK IN 1934, BUT IT WAS

DEEMED UNCONSTITUTIONAL

SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

IN 2010, THE COVERED-UP

CROSS WAS STOLEN AND

RECENTLY RECOVERED BY

POLICE.

IN APRIL, A FEDERAL JUDGE

ALLOWED THE NATIONAL PARK

SERVICE TO TURN OVER THE

LAND, WHERE THE ORIGINAL

CROSS STOOD, TO VETERANS'

GROUPS.

VETERANS DECIDED TO START

OVER AND THEY ERECTED A

SEVEN-FOOT STEEL CROSS ON

SUNDAY.

AND HOPEFULLY NOBODY WILL BE

STEALING THAT ONE.

CBN WILL BE SPREADING THE

WORD OF JESUS CHRIST IN

SOUTH AFRICA.

TEENS ARE ABLE TO SHOW CBN

PROGRAMMING TO THOUSANDS.

CBN RECENTLY SHOWED 72

VIDEOS TO RURAL VILLAGES IN

NIGERIA, GHANA, AND

LIBERIA.

MORE THAN 3,000 PEOPLE

DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS.

CBN PROVIDES NEW BELIEVERS

ABOUT A BOOK ABOUT JESUS AND

LOCAL CHURCHESFULLYUP. CHURCHES FOLLOW UP.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: EMILY LOVED TO

RUN.

SHE KNEW HER JOGGING ROUTE

WELL.

BUT THERE WAS A PROBLEM.

SOMEONE ELSE KNEW HER

JOGGING ROUTE, TOO.

YOU KNOW, IT WAS, LIKE,

YOUR WORST FEAR, AND ALL OF

A SUDDEN IT IS HAPPENING.

Reporter: EMILIE CLOT

IT WAS OUT JOGGING WHEN HER

WORST FEAR BECAME REALITY.

I SAW A MAN COMING

TOWARDS ME, ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF THE STREET.

HE RAN ACROSS THE STREET AND

GRABBED ME AND SPRAYED

PEPPERSPRAY IN MY FACE.

AND DRAGGED ME ACROSS THE

STREET TO WHERE HIS CAR WAS

PARKED IN THE WOODS AND

THREW ME IN THE TRUNK OF HIS

CAR.

IT WAS MY WORST FEAR AND IT

IS HAPPENING TO ME RIGHT

NOW.

Reporter: SHE WAS

TRAPPED IN DARKNESS AS THE

MAN DROVE AROUND, PLANNING

HIS NEXT MOVE.

I FELT AROUND AND I FOUND

A ROLL OF DUCT TAPE AND A

SCREWDRIVER AND HANDCUFFS.

AND SO I THOUGHT AT THAT

TIME FOR SURE I WAS GOING TO

BE KILLED.

IN THE BACK OF MY MIND,

THOUGH, I HAD ALL OF THESE

REGRETS, THINKING I HAVEN'T

BEEN MARRIED YET.

I WANT TO HAVE KIDS.

ALL OF THESE REGRETS THAT MY

LIFE IS TOO SHORT.

Reporter: TO CALM

HERSELF, SHE SANG SONGS SHE

LEARNED AT CHURCH AS A YOUNG

GIRL.

I SANG SOME DIFFERENT

HYMNS AND THINGS THAT I

KNEW, AND I DID FEEL THAT

GOD'S PRESENCE WAS WITH ME.

HE WAS THERE WITH ME.

HE COMFORTED ME.

HIS PEACE WAS THERE IN THE

TRUNK OF THE CAR, AND HE

KEPT ME ALIVE.

AND THE MAN WHO WAS DRIVING

THE CAR MUST HAVE BEEN

CONVICTED, BECAUSE HE TURNED

HIS RADIO ON, AND HE TURNED

IT WAY UP TO DROWN OUT THE

SOUND OF ME SINGING AND

PRAYING.

Reporter: AN HOUR

LATER, THE CAR CAME TO A

STOP AND THE TRUNK OPENED.

EMILY TRIED TO MAKE HER

ESCAPE.

I WAS ABLE TO SCRATCH HIS

FACE, BUT HE GRABBED ME AND

THREW ME TO THE GROUND.

AT THAT POINT, I LOOKED AT

HIM AND I SAID, ARE YOU

WORKING FOR THE DEVIL.

AND HE LOOKED AT ME FUNNY,

AND HE SAID NO.

AND I SAID, WELL, GOD IS

WITH ME.

Reporter: EMILY WAS

THROWN BACK IN THE TRUNK AND

TIED UP.

45 MINUTES LATER THEY

STOPPED AGAIN, AT A HOUSE.

HE BROUGHT ME TO AN

UPSTAIRS ROOM IN THE HOUSE,

AND HANDCUFFED MY HANDS TO A

BAR THAT WAS NEAR THE

FLOOR.

AND THERE HE BRUTALLY RAPED

ME.

Reporter: WHEN IT WAS

ALL OVER, SHE WAS PLACED IN

THE BACK SEAT OF HIS CAR.

HER ATTACKER MADE A STRANGE

REQUEST.

HE ASKED HER TO SING.

I BEGAN SINGING AMAZING

GRACE IN THE CAR.

AND I REALLY FEEL THIS WAS

GOD THAT GAVE ME THAT SONG

TO SING BECAUSE NOT ONLY DID

THIS MAN, WHO HAD JUST DONE

THIS HORRIBLE THING TO ME,

HE NEEDED GOD'S GRACE, AND

HE COULD BE SAVED IF HE

RECEIVED GOD'S GRACE.

BUT, ALSO, I NEEDED GOD'S

GRACE JUST AS MUCH.

EVEN THOUGH I HAD GROWN UP

IN CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS AND

GROWN UP IN CHURCH.

AND I HAD THAT RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE LORD, I HADN'T

RECEIVED THAT GRACE.

SO I NEEDED IT JUST AS MUCH

AS THIS MAN WHO HAD DONE

THIS HORRIBLE THING.

SHE WAS LEFT IN A PARKING

LOT NEAR A COLLEGE AND

CALLED THE POLICE.

HER ATTACKER WAS ARRESTED

THE NEXT DAY, BUT EMILY WAS

LEFT WITH DEEP SCARS.

I WAS PHYSICALLY

HURTING.

I WAS EMOTIONALLY HURTING.

I WAS ANGRY, FOR SURE.

AT THE MAN WHO HAD DONE

THIS.

AND ANGRY AT ALL OF THE

THINGS I HAD TO GO THROUGH

TO HEAL UP.

ANGRY AT THE WHOLE

SITUATION, THAT IT HAD

HAPPENED.

Reporter: A FRIEND TOLD

EMILY THAT GOD LOVED HER AND

WANTED TO HEAL HER.

AND I WAS ABLE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT, THAT JESUS

GAVE EVERYTHING, HE GAVE HIS

LIFE FOR ME BECAUSE HE LOVES

ME SO MUCH.

AND HE OFFERS IT TO ME, AND

IF I JUST TAKE IT AND OPEN

THAT GIFT, I CAN HAVE

ETERNAL LIFE.

I PRAYED A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER.

LORD, I DO WANT TO SERVE YOU

WITH MY LIFE.

I WANT TO LOVE YOU WITH ALL

OF THAT I AM, RECEIVE YOU

INTO MY HEART.

I WANT MY HEART TO BE FULLY

YOURS.

IMMEDIATELY THE WORD CAME

ALIVE TO ME, LIKE IT NEVER

HAD BEFORE.

AND BECAUSE I HEARD HIM SAY,

I'M GOING TO WORK THIS OUT

FOR GOOD, I BEGAN LOOKING

FOR GOOD THINGS TO COME OUT

OF THIS.

I FELT THE LORD WANTED ME TO

FORGIVE THE MAN WHO HAD

RAPED ME.

HE REMINDED ME OF JESUS ON

THE CROSS, WHEN HE SAID,

"FATHER FORGIVE THEM, THEY

KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO."

SO I CHOSE TO FORGIVE THIS

MAN AND I SAID HIS NAME OUT

LOUD, AND I ASKED FATHER TO

FORGIVE HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS

DONE.

AFTER THAT, I BEGAN PRAYING

FOR HIM OFTEN, FOR HIS

SALVATION.

THAT WAS A HUGE STEP IN MY

HEALING, THE FORGIVING HIM.

VERY QUICKLY THE ANGER

STARTED GOING AWAY, AND THE

PAIN OF THE SITUATION

STARTED TO LEAVE AS WELL.

ONLY GOD CAN DO THAT.

ONLY HE CAN DO THAT.

Reporter: HER ATTACKER

WAS GIVEN THE MAXIMUM

SENTENCE FOR HIS ACTIONS.

EMILY'S WORDS, "ARE YOU

WORKING FOR THE DEVIL," AND

SONGS OF "AMAZING GRACE"

WERE CONSTANTLY ON HIS MIND

THEN.

TWO YEARS INTO HIS

INCARCERATION, HE ASKED GOD

TO FORGIVE HIS SINS AND MAKE

HIM NEW.

EMILY FOUND OUT THROUGH A

NEWS REPORTER COVERING

INMATES AT THE

PENITENTIARY.

AND HE GAVE HIS HEART TO

THE LORD, AND ASKED JESUS TO

BE HIS SAVIOR, AND NOW HE

ADMINISTERS TO OTHER INMATES

IN PRISON.

WHEN I HEARD THIS STORY FROM

A REPORTER, I JUMPED UP AND

DOWN, PRAISING GOD IN MY

KITCHEN.

I WAS SO EXCITED TO KNOW

THAT MY PRAYERS HAD BEEN

ANSWERED.

LORD, YOU HAVE ANSWERED MY

PRAYERS.

FORGIVENESS SETS PEOPLE

FREE.

SETS THE FORGIVER FREE, BUT

IT ALSO ALLOWS GOD TO WORK

ON THE HEART OF THE ONE WHO

IS BEING FORGIVEN.

GOD HELPED ME TO FORGIVE

INSTEAD OF HOLDING

BITTERNESS AND HATRED

TOWARDS THIS PERSON.

IT IS JUST A BEAUTIFUL

PICTURE OF HIS GRACE, THAT

NO ONE IS EVER BEYOND THE

REACH OF HIS LOVE AND HIS

GRACE, NO MATTER WHAT

THEY'VE DONE.

Terry: THAT'S A

POWERFUL STORY, ISN'T IT?

A SAD FACT IS THAT EVERY TWO

MINUTES -- EVERY TWO MINUTES

SOMEONE IS SEXUALLY

ASSAULTED IN OUR COUNTRY.

AND ONE OUT OF EVERY SIX

WOMEN WILL BE A VICTIM.

THESE ARE STATISTICS

ROSEMARY TRIPLE KNOWS ALL

TOO WELL.

SHE PRODUCED A

GROUNDBREAKING PROGRAM ON

SEXUAL ABUSE, RIGHT BEFORE

SHE, HERSELF, WAS RAPED.

Reporter: THE TRAUMA OF

RAPE IS BEYOND MOST PEOPLE'S

IMAGINATIONS, BUT ROSEMARY

TRIPLE UNDERSTANDS.

SHE SURVIVED A BRUTAL RAPE

AND IS USING HER EXPERIENCE

TO BRING OTHERS HEALING.

OFFERING HOPE ONE BOX AT A

TIME.

VOLUNTEERS FOR HER

NON-PROFIT, "FEAR TO

FREEDOM" LOVINGLY PACK

AFTER-CARE KITS FOR RAPE AND

ASSAULT VICTIMS.

WHILE THE ORGANIZATION CAN'T

TAKE AWAY THE PAIN,

VOLUNTEERS HOPE TO BRING

HEALING THROUGH COMPASSION,

AND ENCOURAGE VICTIMS ON

THEIR JOURNEYS FROM FEAR TO

FREEDOM.

Terry: ROSEMARY TRIPLE

IS WITH US NOW.

AND ROSEMARY, WE THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

AS WE MENTIONED EARLIER, YOU

EXPERIENCED A RAPE YOURSELF

THAT DRAMATICALLY AFFECTED

YOUR LIFE.

TELL US ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED

TO YOU?

YES.

AND WHEN I HEAR A STORY LIKE

EMILY'S, IT JUST BREAKS MY

HEART.

BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND, AS

I'VE WALKED THROUGH WITH SO

MANY WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN

SEXUALLY ASSAULT, THIS PAIN

OF ASSAULT.

YES, MY OWN PASSION FOR THIS

TOPIC CAME WHEN I WAS 25

YEARS OLD AND HAD THIS

TELEVISION TALK SHOW IN

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.

I LOVED THE OPPORTUNITY TO

BE ON THE SHOW AND FOR TWO

YEARS TO HOST DIFFERENT

PEOPLE.

BUT DOING A SHOW ON SEXUAL

ASSAULT IN 1975 WAS

SOMETHING THAT NOBODY WAS

TALKING ABOUT.

THE RESPONSE WAS AMAZING.

HUNDREDS OF WOMEN WHO HAD

NEVER BEEN ACKNOWLEDGED FOR

THE PAIN THAT THEY HAD

RECEIVED.

AFTERWARDS, HUNDREDS OF

CALLS, AND YET ONLY FOUR

DAYS LATER I WOULD HAVE

NEVER DREAMED THAT I WAS

GOING TO BE THE NEXT

VICTIM.

Terry: AND FOR YOU, YOU

SAID THAT THE WORST PART, AS

TERRIBLE AS THE ASSAULT

ITSELF WAS, THE WORST PART

IS THE FEAR THAT LINGERS

AFTERWARDS.

HOW DID YOU DEAL WITH THAT?

YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

THE MEMORY OF HIM SAYING,

WHEN HE FIRST GRABBED ME

FROM BEHIND, I KNOW WHO YOU

ARE, I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE,

AND I'LL KILL YOU IF YOU

TELL.

AS HE CONTINUED THAT

DEVASTATING DREAM, IT'S

ALMOST LIKE A TAPE RECORDER

THAT YOU CAN'T TURN OFF.

Terry: AND THEN YOU

WENT THROUGH A ROBBERY,

SHORTLY AFTER THAT, AN

INVASION IN YOUR HOME?

AND THAT ALSO ADDED TO

THE FEAR.

AT THAT POINT I HAD A

2-YEAR-OLD LITTLE GIRL AND

THAT ADDED TO THAT TRAUMA.

FOR ME, AS WELL, IT WAS

FORGIVENESS THAT WAS TRULY

THE THING THAT SET ME FREE.

AND I'M SO THANKFUL ALSO TO

THE LORD BECAUSE IT IS WHAT

SET FREE MY OFFENDER AS

WELL.

Terry: WHAT I LOVE

ABOUT THIS IS THAT YOU HAVE

TAKEN THE NEGATIVE THAT

HAPPENED TO YOU AND YOU'RE

DOING SOMETHING AMAZING FOR

OTHERS WITH IT.

YOU HAVE AN ORGANIZATION

THAT'S CALLED "FEAR 2

FREEDOM."

TELL ME ABOUT THE

SIGNIFICANCE OF THAT AND

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

WE WANT TO REDEEM AND

RESTORE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN

SEXUALLY ASSAULTED, AND GIVE

THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING

HOPE AND HEALING.

IT GOES BACK TO THE FACT

THAT EVERY TWO MINUTES IN

OUR COUNTRY, SOMEONE IN OUR

COUNTRY IS SEXUALLY

ASSAULTED.

WE'RE IN THE BUSINESS OF

REDEEMING JOY.

Terry: HOW DO YOU DO

THAT?

A COMBINATION OF A

PROGRAM CALLED "WHERE IS THE

LINE" FOR UNIVERSITY

STUDENTS.

PARTNERS THE STUDENTS WITH

THOSE IN A HOSPITAL, SO WE

CAN PRODUCE THESE WONDERFUL

"FEAR 2 FREEDOM" KITS TO

BRING A LITTLE REDEEMED JOY

INTO THEIR HEARTS.

Terry: THESE ARE SO

BEAUTIFULLY DONE.

YOU HAVEN'T JUST

THOUGHTFULLY PUT THINGS INTO

IT.

YOU BEAUTIFULLY HAVE PUT

THINGS INTO SOMETHING THAT

IS GOING TO COME IN TOUCH

WITH PEOPLE AT A VERY UGLY,

FRIGHTENING TIME IN THEIR

LIVES.

I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU'VE

INVOLVED COLLEGE STUDENTS IN

THIS BECAUSE SOME OF THESE

STATS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

ARE MOST PREVALENT ON

COLLEGE CAMPUSES.

COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE FOUR

TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE

SEXUALLY ABUSED DURING THOSE

FOUR YEARS.

AND WE ALSO WANT TO RAISE

AWARENESS AMONG THE COLLEGE

STUDENTS, AND GIVE THEM A

WAY TO TANGIBLELY MAKE A

DIFFERENCE AND BE PART OF

THE SOLUTION.

THAT, I BELIEVE, WILL

REALLY, TRULY BEGIN TO

CHANGE OUR CULTURE.

Terry: WHAT YOU'VE PUT

IN THE BOXES IS SO SYMBOLIC,

SIGNIFICANT, AND NEEDED.

TALK ABOUT WHAT A PERSON

RECEIVES WHEN THEY RECEIVE

THIS.

WE WANT IT TO BE LIKE A

GIFT.

IT HAS SWEAT PANTS AND A

T-SHIRT.

IT HAS UNDERWEAR, AND THIS

WONDERFUL LITTLE FREEDOM

BEAR, AND THIS BOOK THAT

TELLS THE STORY OF ONE MY

UNIVERSITY GIRLS WHO WAS

RAPED AT 7 YEARS OLD AT A

PICNIC TABLE.

AND THE LITTLE BEAR WAS

THROWN AGAINST THE TABLE AND

HIS HEART WAS TORN, AND SHE

COULDN'T HEAL IT.

BUT THE LITTLE BEAR USED

THAT TO HEAL HER.

IT HAS NOTES ON THE BACK OF

HIS BACKPACK.

SOMEONE THAT WAS ABUSED

WOULD WRITE, "I WAS DATE

RAPED" AND A CHILD MAY EVEN

DRAW A STICK FIGURE.

THEY WOULD PUT IT IN THE

HEART OF THE BEAR.

INSIDE THE HEART OF THE BEAR

IT WOULD STAY FOR A WHILE,

UNTIL THEY GOT A LITTLE

STRONGER.

AND THEN THEY WOULD TAKE

THAT OUT AND DROP IT INTO

WATER.

AT FIRST THE WORDS

DISAPPEAR, AND THEN THE

ENTIRE PAPER DISAPPEARS.

IT IS A LITTLE SYMBOL THEY

DON'T HAVE TO STAY A

VICTIM.

Terry: SO IT IS PART OF

THE PROCESS TO HEALING.

EVEN THOUGH THIS IS KIND OF

AN AWKWARD SITUATION, WHEN

YOU AND I FIRST TALKED AND

YOU SHOWED ME THIS BOX, I

THOUGHT, WHY WOULD YOU PUT

UNDERWEAR IN A BOX.

BUT YOU SHARED WITH ME

SOMETHING THAT WAS PRETTY

STARTLING.

WE DON'T REALIZE THAT

MOST OF THE HOSPITALS IN THE

COUNTRY, WHEN PEOPLE COME

FOR THE DATE-RAPE, THEY

DON'T KNOW THAT ALL THEIR

CLOTHES ARE HELD WITH

EVIDENCE.

OFTENTIMES THEY LEAVE IN

PAPER SCRUBS.

IT ADDS TO THE SHAME AND

GUILT.

IT BROKE MY HEART, HAVING

BEEN A VICTIM MYSELF.

THE TOILETRIES ARE NOT

ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL IN

THE EMERGENCY ROOM.

THE TOILETRIES GIVE THEM A

CHANCE TO TAKE A SHOWER.

YOU WANT A SHOWER SO MUCH.

THE TOOTHBRUSH AND

TOOTHPASTE ALLOW THEM TO

BRUSH THEIR TEETH.

SOME OF THESE WOMEN ARE

GOING DIRECTLY TO A

SHELTER.

THIS ALSO GOES TO WOMEN OF

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND

CHILDREN THAT HAVE BEEN

ABUSED.

WE WANT IT TO GO TO ANYONE

WHO COMES TO THAT HOSPITAL

NEEDING THE COMFORT AND

HOPING AND BELIEVING THAT

THE STORY HERE OF MOLLY WILL

HELP THEM SEE THAT THEY CAN

HAVE A FUTURE, TOO, AND NOT

BE STUCK AS A VICTIM.

Terry: THERE CAN BE A

FRESH START, A NEW

BEGINNING.

AND THAT THEY'RE HUMAN.

YES.

AND FOR THE CHILDREN, THE

BEAR GEAR, THIS IS A LITTLE

BOOK BAG, AND THE ONLY

DIFFERENCE FOR THEM IS IT

ALSO HAS TOYS AND STICKER

BOOKS.

THE EXAM IS OFTENTIMES TWO

HOURS LONG, AND FOR A CHILD

THAT IS DIFFICULT.

WE'RE IN THREE HOSPITALS IN

RIVERSIDE, CHILDREN'S

HOSPITALS, AND M.C. D. IN

RICHMOND, AND ONE OF THE

WOMEN TOLD US ABOUT A VERY

SMALL CHILD THAT GOT THE

BOOK BAG AND WAS SO THRILLED

AND HELD ON TO THE LITTLE

CLOTHES AND JUST CLUTCHED

THE LITTLE BEAR AS THEY WERE

GOING THROUGH THIS EXAM.

AS SHE WALKED OUT, SHE HAD

THE BOOK BAG AND ALL THE

NURSE COULD SEE WAS THE

BEAR, SHE WAS SO TINY.

WE HOPE IT WILL BRING THEM

THAT REDEEMED JOY.

Terry: YOU'RE DOING A

MARVELOUS THING FOR PEOPLE

WHO FIND THEMSELVES IN VERY

DEVASTATING CIRCUMSTANCES.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

SHARING YOUR STORY WITH US.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE

INFORMATION ON ROSE MAYOR

ROSEMARY'S "FEAR 2 FREEDOM,"

PROGRAM, LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

MAYBE SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN

VICTIMS AND YOU'RE FIGHTING

YOUR WAY TO FREEDOM.

CALL AND LET SOMEONE PRAY

WITH YOU ABOUT THAT.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

THERE IS A FRIEND ON THE

OTHER END OF THAT LINE.

YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO GIVE

THEM YOUR NAME.

JUST CALL AND SAY I NEED

PRAYER.

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING BE TO

TAKING YOUR QUESTIONS FROM

OUR IN-BOX.

SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

.

Terry: WELL, IN THE

TIME WE HAVE LEFT, WE WOULD

LIKE TO ANSWER A FEW OF YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, DONNA SAYS, "IS IT A

SIN FOR CHRISTIANS TO READ

CRIME NOVELS AND SUCH?

ARE WE ONLY TO READ ABOUT

JESUS AND THE BIBLE, ETC.?"

Pat: I HAD ONE SWEET

LADY WHO WROTE ROMANCE

BOOKS, AND HER EDITOR SAID

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SEX SCENE

EVERY 100 LINES OR 100 WORDS

OR SOMETHING --

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: IT WAS

UNBELIEVABLE.

SO THEY PUT ALL OF THIS

STUFF IN THERE.

YOU ARE EXPOSING YOURSELF TO

THE MIND OF SOMEBODY WHO

DOESN'T KNOW JESUS.

AND LIKE IT OR NOT, THAT

STUFF WILL PERMEATE.

IT CAN BE DETECTIVE STORIES,

AND IT CAN BE SOME OF THESE

OTHERS.

INVARIABLY, THERE IS A

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

PROFANITY.

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

PROFANITY.

EVERY FOUR-LETTER WORD YOU

EVER HEARD, EVERY SEXUAL

PERVERSION YOU HAVE NEVER

CONCEIVED OF OR HEARD

ABOUT.

IT IS ALL IN THOSE BOOKS.

AND YES THEY HAVE A PLOT,

AND SOME DETECTIVE KILLS

SOMEBODY AND HE GOES BEFORE

THE JUDGE, ETC.

THAT'S WHAT IS OUT THERE.

AND IT'S REALLY HARD.

BUT SOME DO A GREAT JOB.

FOR EXAMPLE, GRISHOM IS A

CHRISTIAN AND HE WRITES SOME

TREMENDOUS STORIES.

Terry: AND CHRISTIAN

BOOKSTORES HAVE WONDERFUL

BOOKS.

Pat: I THINK THE

CHRISTIAN PUBLISHERS GO A

LITTLE OVERBOARD.

THEY WON'T LET YOU PUT IN A

"DAM" OR A "HELL."

IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE AN

AUTHOR, YOU HAVE TO HAVE

SOME REALISM IN THERE.

THEY WON'T LET YOU DO IT.

Terry: THIS IS SASH SHA

WHO SAYS, "THERE THE SOULS

IN HELL BE ABLE TO SEE THE

SOULS IN HEAVEN, AND WILL

THEY RECOGNIZE THEM?"

Pat: I DON'T THINK SO.

ALL WE HAVE IS THE RICH MAN

WAS IN HELL.

AND HE LIFTED UP HIS EYES

AND HE SAW ABRAHAM, AND HE

SAW THE BEGGER IN ABRAHAM'S

BOSOM.

SO APPARENTLY THERE WAS SOME

RECOGNITION, ACCORDING TO

THAT STORY THAT JESUS GAVE.

HOW MUCH INTERPLAY THERE IS,

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT I DON'T THINK DEAD

PEOPLE HAVE A CHANCE TO LOOK

DOWN ON EARTH AND WATCH WHAT

WE DO.

Terry: THIS IS JAMES

WHO SAYS, "ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," GORDON SAYS WE

WILL HEAR GOD'S VOICE.

HOW DO WE HEAR GOD'S VOICE.

I'VE PRAYED FOR MY SPIRITUAL

EARS TO BE OPENED, BUT I

HAVE NEVER HEARD GOD'S

VOICE.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO HEAR

HIM?"

Pat: YOU'VE GOT TO

SPEND TIME WITH THE LORD.

HOW DO YOU HEAR GOD'S

VOICE?

ONE OF THE WAYS YOU HEAR IT

IS BY READING THE BIBLE.

IT ISN'T ALWAYS AN INNER

SPEAKING.

HE CAN SPEAK, OBVIOUSLY, TO

YOU IN YOUR INNER MAN.

BUT HE CAN ALSO SPEAK

THROUGH THE WORD AND THROUGH

THE ADVICE OF GODLY PEOPLE.

HE'S GOT A NUMBER OF WAYS OF

COMMUNICATING WITH US.

THE BIG THING IS YOUR HEART

IS OPEN TO WHAT HE HAS TO

SAY.

Terry: SOMETIMES, DO

YOU THINK PEOPLE WILL

MISCONCEIVE AND THINK

THEY'RE LOOKING FOR

SOMETHING AUDIBLE?

Pat: JEREMIAH SAID GOD

CAME TO ME IN THE MAN OF

VOICE, SO HE HEARD GOD'S

VOICE.

GOD HAS A WAY.

HE'LL COMMUNICATE WITH YOU.

THAT'S THE BIG THING, IF

YOU'RE OPEN TO HIM.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, WE'LL TALK WITH

FORMER GOVERNOR MIKE

HUCKABEE.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PSALM 107:

"OH, GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD

FOR HE IS GOOD, FOR HIS

MERCY ENDURES FOREVER."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE GOT.

REMEMBER OUR TELEPHONE IS

AVAILABLE 24 HOURS A DAY,

AND OUR THANKS TO WENDY AND

TERRY AND ALL OF US.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
