Lee: LIFE UNDER SHARI'A

LAW, AND IT'S NOT JUST IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

IF PEOPLE AREN'T AFRAID

OF IT, DON'T STEAL.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE

STONED TO DEATH, DON'T

COMMIT ADULTERY.

Lee: SEE WHAT IT IS

HAPPENING AND WHY IT MAY BE

COMING TO THE U.S.

AND THEN, INSIDE THE BIGGEST

MOVIE OF THE SEASON.

WHAT'S BEHIND THE TWILIGHT

OBSESSION.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

TERRY, YOU'RE AN INTELLIGENT

LADY.

DO GIRLS LIKE TO HAVE

CREATURES BITE THEIR NECKS

AND DRAW BLOOD?

Terry: WELL, WE HAVE A

GUEST WE'RE GOING TO TALK

WITH A LITTLE LATER WHO IS

GOING TO EXPLAIN WHAT THE

DRAW OF ALL OF THAT IS.

Pat: ARE YOU GOING TO

TELL ME WHAT THE FEMALE SIDE

OF IT IS?

Terry: WELL, SHE IS.

I'M NOT.

Pat: I AM NOT A VAMPIRE

FAN.

IN ANY EVENT, WE'LL TELL YOU

ABOUT THAT.

MORE PRECISELY, IN TERMS OF

DRAWING BLOOD, IT LOOKS LIKE

THEY'RE READY FOR WAR IN

ISRAEL.

ISRAEL SEEMS TO BE ON THE

BRINK OF WAR WITH THE

PALESTINIANS.

FIGHTING BETWEEN THE TWO

SIDES IS NOW HEATING UP IN

GAZA.

Terry: ISRAEL'S AIR

FORCE IS LAUNCH DEADLY

ATTACKS ON GAZA.

AND THE TENSION COULD SPREAD

THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: "OPERATION

PILLAR OF DEFENSE" IS AIMED

AT LAUNCHING MASSIVE ATTACKS

ON SOUTHERN ISRAELI CITIES

THAT ESCALATED OVER THE LAST

DAYS AND WEEKS.

THERE HAS BEEN MORE THAN

140 ROCKETS THAT HAVE BEEN

FIRED INTO ISRAEL SINCE THE

BEGINNING.

Reporter: ISRAEL UPPED

THE ANTE ON WEDNESDAY WHEN

IT CARRIED OUT A STRIKE ON

HAMAS' WING.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE AT THE

BORDER OF ISRAEL AND THE

GAZA STRIP.

YOU CAN SEE THE TRACE OF ONE

OF THE ROCKETS FIRED INTO

SOUTHERN ISRAEL.

THIS IS A BATTLE THAT IS

CONTINUING.

IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR

SEVERAL DAYS, AND LIKELY

SEVERAL MORE.

Reporter: ISRAEL SAYS

IT WAS TARGET TERRORIST

INFRASTRUCTURE AND

ROCKET-LAUNCHING SITES.

BEHIND US, YOU CAN CAN

SEE THE PLUMES OF SMOKE OF

THE IRON DOME.

AND YOU CAN HEAR THE DOME,

WHICH IS THE COLOR RED

ALARM, WHICH IS NOTIFYING

ALL OF THE RESIDENTS.

YOU CAN HEAR THE BOOMS IN

THE BACKGROUND RIGHT NOW, OF

PROBABLY IRON DOME SHOOTING

DOWN SOME OF THOSE

MISSILES.

Reporter: THE IRON DOME

ARE ABOUT 80% EFFECTIVE OF

HITTING THE MISSILES.

BUT ON THURSDAY, AT LEAST

ONE MISSILE GOT THROUGH.

WE'RE NOT TOO FAR FROM

THE GAZA STRIP, AND YOU CAN

SEE BEHIND ME, THERE HAS

BEEN A DIRECT HIT BY ONE OF

THE ROCKETS.

WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THREE

ISRAELIS HAVE BEEN KILLED,

AND OTHERS ARE WOUNDED.

THIS IS THE AFTERMATH OF THE

ROCKETS THAT HAVE BEEN FIRED

FROM THE GAZA STRIP INTO

ISRAEL.

WE HEARD A BIG BOOM, AND

WE SAW THE BUILDING

DESTROYED.

FIRST I THOUGHT IS MY MOM

OKAY.

I'M STILL SHAKING AND I'M

VERY SCARED.

RIGHT NOW I'M REALLY

SCARED.

I DON'T KNOW IF I'M SAFE.

Reporter: NETANYAHU

SPOKE WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA

OVERNIGHT.

OBAMA BACKED ISRAEL'S RIGHT

TO DEFEND ITSELF, AND ALSO

URGED ISRAEL TO DO

EVERYTHING TO PREVENT

CIVILIAN CASUALTIES IN

GAZA.

AND EGYPT RECALL ITS

AMBASSADOR TO ISRAEL.

HOW LONG DO YOU EXPECT

THIS TO GO?

I EXPECT THEM TO GET THE

MESSAGE THAT WE SEND THEM.

AND IF IT WILL NOT BE LIKE

THAT, WE WILL CONTINUE.

Reporter: IT'S NOT

CLEAR IF ISRAEL WILL MOUND A

GROUND INCURSION IN THE

GAZA, BUT SOME RESERVISTS

HAVE BEEN CALLED UP, AND IN

THE COMING DAYS, ISRAEL

EXPECTS THE ROCKET FIRE TO

CONTINUE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

ISRAEL.

Pat: I WOULD THINK

ISRAEL WOULD HAVE TO MOVE

INTO GAZA.

THEY SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAVE

GIVEN IT UP.

BIG MISTAKE.

IN THE INTEREST OF PEACE, WE

WILL GIVE UP LAND.

IT HASN'T WORKED.

IT DIDN'T WORK ANYWHERE, AND

IT WON'T WORK THIS TIME

AGAIN.

AND SO THE ISRAELIS WILL

UNDOUBTEDLY HAVE TO GO IN

WITH GROUND TROOPS AND GET

RID OF THE TERRORISTS WHO

ARE LAUNCHING ROCKETS INTO

ISRAEL.

YOU CAN'T BLAME THEM.

HERE AT HOME, CONGRESS IS

TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT

REALLY HAPPENED ON THAT

DEADLY ATTACK OF AMERICANS

IN LIBYA.

THEY KEEP TALKING BACK AND

FORTH.

BUT WE HAVE AN EXTRAORDINARY

INTERVIEW WITH SOMEBODY WHO

SAYS THINGS MAY HAVE BEEN

MUCH MORE SINISTER THAN WHAT

THE PRESS HAS LED US TO

BELIEVE.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT EXCLUSIVE

STORY.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

HEARINGS ON THE

SEPTEMBER 11TH ATTACK ON THE

U.S. CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI,

LIBYA, START TODAY IN

CONGRESS.

REPUBLICANS ARE EAGER TO

MOVE PAST THE DISTRACTION OF

THE GENERAL DAVID PETRAEUS

SEX SCANDAL.

THEY WANT TO GET TO THE

TRUTH ABOUT THE ATTACK THAT

KILLED U.S. AMBASSADOR CHRIS

STEVENS AND THREE OTHER

AMERICANS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: AHEAD OF

TODAY'S BENGHAZI HEARINGS,

SPARKS ARE ALREADY FLYING.

IN HIS FIRST NEWS CONFERENCE

SINCE RE-ELECTION, PRESIDENT

OBAMA LASHED OUT AT

REPUBLICAN SENATORS JOHN

McCAIN AND LINDSAY

GRAHAM.

THEY'VE BEEN CRITICAL OF HIS

U.N. AMBASSADOR SUSAN RICE,

WHO TOLD THE WORLD OVER AND

OVER AGAIN THE BENGHAZI

TERROR ATTACKS WERE NOTHING

MORE THAN A PROTEST GONE

WRONG.

President Obama: IF

SENATOR McCAIN AND SENATOR

GRAHAM AND OTHERS WANT TO GO

AFTER SOMEBODY, THEY SHOULD

GO AFTER ME.

BUT FOR THEM TO GO AFTER THE

U.N. AMBASSADOR, WHO HAD

NOTHING TO DO WITH BENGHAZI,

AND TO BESMERCH HER

REPUTATION IS NOT GOOD.

IF THE PRESIDENT THINKS

WE ARE PICKING ON PEOPLE, HE

REALLY DOES NOT HAVE ANY

IDEA OF HOW SERIOUS THIS

ISSUE IS.

Reporter: SENATOR

LINDSAY GRAHAM ISSUED A

STATEMENT SAY, QUOTE,"DON'T

THINK FOR ONE MINUTE I DON'T

HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE.

I BELIEVE YOU FAILED AS A

COMMANDER IN CHIEF BEFORE,

DURING, AND AFTER THE

ATTACK."

THEY HAVE BEEN JUGGLING THE

BENGHAZI SCANDAL AND THE

DAVID PETRAEUS SCANDAL.

HE WENT TO LIBYA TO

PERSONALLY INVESTIGATE IT,

BUT HE HANDED IN HIS

RESIGNATION LAST WEEK AFTER

HIS PERSONAL SCANDAL BROKE.

NOW OFFICIALS SAY HE WILL

TESTIFY BEFORE THE HOUSE

INTELLIGENT COMMITTEE ABOUT

THE BENGHAZI ATTACK.

CBN NEWS SPOKE WITH RETIRED

LIEUTENANT GENERAL JERRY

BOYCAN.

HE SERVED AS DIRECTOR OF THE

SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND,

AND HE FINDS THE TIMING VERY

SUSPICIOUS.

WHEN THIS ALL COMES OUT,

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO FIND

OUT THERE IS A HUGE COVERUP,

AND THERE IS MORE TO THIS

THAN MEETS THE EYE.

I THINK YOU'LL SEE THERE IS

A COVERT ACTION GOING ON TO

FUNNEL ARMS TO THE REBELS IN

SYRIA.

I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO FIND

THAT CERTAIN MEMBERS OF THE

STATE DEPARTMENT HAVE

CONCLUDED THAT THE JIHADISTS

ARE OUR FRIENDS, AND THAT WE

NEED TO BE SUPPORTING THEM,

AND A VARIETY OF OTHER

THINGS.

President Obama: I

THINK IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US

TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI, AND

I'M HAPPEN TO COOPERATE IN

ANYWAYS THAT CONGRESS

WANTS.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Lee: MEANWHILE, THE

HEAD OF THE U.S. MILITARY'S

AFRICA COMMAND NOW CONFIRMS

SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO

ATTACKED THE U.S. CONSULATE

IN LIBYA HAVE TIES TO

AL-QAEDA.

AND THE U.S. HAS DRAWING

CONCERNS, PAT, THAT THE

REGION HAS BECOME A

TERRORIST HAVEN.

Pat: LEE, GENERAL

BOYCAN IS AN INCREDIBLE

MAN.

HE HEADED UP THE ORIGINAL

DELTA FORCE PEOPLE.

HE IS A GREAT WARRIOR.

AND FOR HIM TO SAY HE THINKS

WE WERE FUNNELING WEAPONS

COVERTLY TO THE

TERRORISTS -- NOT THE

TERRORISTS, BUT THE REBELS

IN SYRIA, AND THAT CERTAIN

PEOPLE IN THE STATE

DEPARTMENT ARE ON THE SIDE

OF THE JIHADISTS -- DID HE

REALLY SAY THAT?

LEE?

Lee: YES, PAT, HE DID

SAY THAT.

HE SAYS THAT'S A THEORY.

HE CANNOT CONFIRM THAT.

HE ADMITS HE DOES NOT HAVE

INSIDE INFORMATION, BUT HE

IS SPECULATING THAT.

Pat: IT IS QUITE AN

INTERESTING SPECULATION FROM

A MAN THAT IS AS HIGH-PRICED

AS HE IS.

THAT OPENS UP SOMETHING THAT

NEVER WAS MENTIONED BEFORE,

THAT THERE WAS A COVERT

OPERATION BY THE C.I.A. TO

GET WEAPONS TO SYRIA, AND

THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE

STATE DEPARTMENT WHO ARE

FAVORING THE JIHADIES.

AND SUSAN RICE I THINK IS A

DISASTER, AND THE THOUGHT

SHE WOULD BE CONSIDERED FOR

SECRETARY OF STATE.

THE REPUBLICANS WILL

FILIBUSTER THE DAY LIGHTS

OUT OF THAT ONE.

THERE IS NO WAY SUCH AN

APPOINTMENT WOULD POSSIBLY

GO THROUGH.

LET'S GO ON.

IT'S AN INTERESTING DAY,

LEE.

Lee: IT IS, PAT.

TOP REPUBLICANS SAY MITT

ROMNEY LOST THE ELECTION

LAST WEEK BECAUSE HE DID NOT

RESPOND TO ATTACKS FROM

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN,

AND THAT HE DIDN'T OFFER

SPECIFIC POLICIES.

ROMNEY SAYS THE PRESIDENT

WON RE-ELECTION BECAUSE OF

SO-CALLED GIFTS HE GAVE TO

BLACKS, HISPANICS, AND YOUNG

VOTERS.

HE MADE THAT CLAIM ON

WEDNESDAY.

THE PRESIDENT'S CAMPAIGN

FOCUSED ON CERTAIN MEMBERS

OF HIS BASE COALITION, GIVE

THEM EXTRAORDINARY FINANCIAL

GIFTS FROM THE GOVERNMENT,

AND THEN WORKED VERY

AGGRESSIVELY TO TURN THEM

OUT TO VOTE.

Lee: HOWEVER, LOUISIANA

GOVERNOR BOBBY JINDAL CALLS

THAT, QUOTE,"ABSOLUTELY

WRONG," AND SAYS THAT

SENTIMENT DOES NOT REPRESENT

REPUBLICANS.

MEANWHILE, ONE LEADLY

POLITICAL AUTHOR BELIEVES

ROMNEY'S MORMON FAITH MAY

HAVE PREVENTED HIM FROM

REALLY CONNECTING WITH SOME

VOTERS.

AUTHOR STEVEN MANSFIELD HAS

WRITTEN BIOGRAPHIES OF

GEORGE BUSH AND BARACK

OBAMA.

MORMONISM EXPRESS ALMOST

A HYPER PERFORMANCE, ALMOST

BEING PERFECT.

LOOK AT MITT ROMNEY, HE'S

STRAIGHT FROM CENTRAL

CASTING, AS FAR AS WE KNOW

HE HAS NEVER HAD A BAD HAIR

DAY, HE HAS THE PERFECT

FAMILY.

HE IS A MAN ALMOST WITHOUT

FLAWS.

WHAT FLAWS HE HAS ARE AN

EXTENSION OF HIS STRIVING

FOR PERFECTION AND STRIVING

FOR EXCELLENCE.

AMERICANS LIKE THE STORY OF

REDEMPTION.

THEY LIKE THE GUY WHO IS

FLAWED, WHO HAS HAD THE

FAILURES AND HAS ASCENDED

AGAIN.

PEOPLE PREFER GEORGE W.

BUSH.

THEY PREFER THE MAN WHO

HAD

A DRINKING PROBLEM AND FOUND

JESUS.

THEY PREFER THE YOUNG HALF

WHITE, HALF BLACK KID WHO

WAS MOVING TWEAN BETWEEN

WORLDS AND THEN FOUND FAITH

AND FOUND A PURPOSE IN

LIFE.

YES, IT COULD VERY WELL BE

ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THAT

HE DID NOT CONNECT WITH VAST

SEGMENTS OF THE ELECTORATE.

Lee: TO HEAR MY ENTIRE

VIEW WITH STEVEN MANSFIELD,

YOU CAN GO TO CBN.COM.

MANSFIELD DIDN'T SAY THAT'S

NOWHY CHRISTIANS DIDN'T

VOTE FOR HIM, BUT THAT MAY

BE A REASON.

Pat: SO IN ORDER TO BE

A PRESIDENT, YOU'VE GOT TO

BE A FLANDERER AND GO

THROUGH SOME GREAT TRIAL.

WE, AS CHRISTIANS, BELIEVE

IN REDEMPTION.

I THINK THE MAIN REASON THAT

ROMNEY LOST IS BECAUSE THE

CHICAGO POLITICIANS PULLED

THEIR USUAL TRICK.

IF YOU CAN'T RUN ON YOUR

RECORD, DEMONIZE THE OTHER

GUY.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY DID.

THEY SPENT MONTHS POUNDING

AT ROMNEY, SAYING HE WAS OUT

OF TOUCH, HE WAS A VULTURE

CAPITALIST.

AND HE DIDN'T ANSWER.

HE EITHER DIDN'T HAVE THE

TIME FOR THE MONEY TO ANSWER

IT.

AND BECAUSE THOSE QUESTIONS

WERE NOT ANSWERED, THEY

STUCK IN THE AMERICAN

PSYCHE, AND HIS POPULARITY

NEVER GOT TO WHERE IT SHOULD

HAVE BEEN CONSIDERING WHAT A

LIKEABLE GUY HE IS.

HE IS CERTAINLY LIKE THE

CANDIDATE FROM CENTRAL

CASTING, HE IS ABSOLUTELY

PERFECT.

GOOD-LOOKING AND LOVELY WIFE

AND WONDERFUL KIDS AND

SUCCESS.

WELL, WHAT'S WRONG WITH

THAT?

LEE?

Lee: EVANGELIST FRANG

FRANKLIN GRAHAM HAS A

WARNING FOR AMERICA.

HE TELLS CBN NEWS THAT THIS

COUNTRY HAS TURNED THEIR

BACK ON GOD.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM SPOKE WITH

CBN'S DAVID BRODY FOR THIS

FRIDAY'S EPISODE OF "THE

BRODY FILE."

THIS WILL USHER IN THE

LARGEST CHANGES IN OUR

SOCIETY SINCE THE CIVIL

WAR.

NO QUESTION.

EVERYBODY'S TAXES WILL GO

UP.

NOT AT FIRST, BUT

EVERYBODY'S TAXES ARE GOING

TO GO UP.

IT IS JUST GOING TO GET MORE

EXPENSIVE.

AS YOU TRY TO PAY FOR

OBAMACARE AND ALL OF THESE

OTHER THINGS OUT THERE

BEFORE US.

GOD IS IN CONTROL.

AND IF CHRISTIANS ARE UPSET,

THEY NEED TO BE UPSET AT

THEMSELVES.

WE NEEDED TO DO A BETTER JOB

OF GETTING OUR PEOPLE, THE

CHURCH, TO VOTE.

NOW, I'M NOT TRYING TO TELL

YOU HOW TO VOTE.

BUT VOTE.

MY GOODNESS.

AND VOTE FOR CANDIDATES THAT

STAND FOR BIBLICAL VALUES.

BUT OUR COUNTRY IS IN

TROUBLE.

IT'S TROUBLE SPIRITUALLY.

WE'VE TURNED OUR BACK ON

GOD.

Lee: AND YOU CAN SEE

MORE OF THAT INTERVIEW ON

"THE BRODY FILE" PROGRAM

THIS FRIDAY, TOMORROW,

9:30 A.M. ON THE ABC FAMILY

CHANNEL.

INVESTORS ARE STILL GETTING

OUT OF STOCKS WHILE

WASHINGTON STARTS WORKING ON

A DEAL ON THE SO-CALLED

FISCAL CLIFF.

STOCKS HAVE HIT THEIR LOWEST

LEVEL IN FOUR MONTHS.

CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE

HAVE TO REACH AN AGREEMENT

ON THE BUDGET BEFORE THE END

OF THIS YEAR.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAID AGAIN

YESTERDAY THAT HE WANTS

HIGHER TAXES ON UPPER INCOME

AMERICANS.

SOME OF THOSE TAXES COULD

INCLUDE PROFITS FROM

STOCKS.

SOME INVESTORS WANT TO SELL

THEIR STOCKS NOW AND PAY A

LOWER TAX RATE AS A RESULT

OF THAT.

ECONOMISTS SAY IF WASHINGTON

CANNOT REACH A DEAL, THE

U.S. WOULD FALL BACK INTO A

RECESSION, AND THAT'S GIVING

SOME INVESTORS ANOTHER

REASON TO SELL.

PAT?

Pat: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

YOU KNOW, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WHAT WE -- THE

THOUSAND-POUND GORILLA IN

THE ROOM OR WHATEVER TERM

YOU WANT TO GIVE, IS THAT

THE FEDERAL RESERVE HAS BEEN

FLOODING THE NATION WITH

CURRENCY.

THEY'RE BUYING UP

$40 BILLION WORTH OF

SECURITIES EVERY MONTH.

IT IS INCREDIBLE EASING.

AND THE INTEREST RATES ARE

AT HISTORIC LOWS AND THEY'VE

KEPT THEM LOW.

AND THEY SAID WE'LL KEEP

THEM LOW.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ALL OF A

SUDDEN THAT MONEY BEGINS TO

COME BACK HOME AND IT BEGINS

TO DO WHAT MONEY ALWAYS

DOES.

AND ABUNDANCE OF MONEY WILL

CAUSE PRICES TO GO UP.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE

GOODS AND SERVICES ARE ANY

MORE VALUABLE.

IT JUST MEANS IN TERMS OF

DOLLARS, THEY'LL BE PRICED

HIGHER.

AND ONCE THAT HAPPENS AND WE

BEGIN TO KICK INTO

INFLATION, WHICH NUMBER HAS

TALKED ABOUT, WHAT WOULD WE

DO IF WE SUDDENLY HAD 6%,

7%, 8% INFLATION?

AND WE HAD INTEREST RATES

THAT HAVE TO CORRESPOND.

WHAT WOULD THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT DO WITH THIS

INCREDIBLE DEBT IF THEY HAD

TO PAY FOR IT IN TERMS OF

MARKET INTEREST RATES AT 6%,

7%, 8%?

IT WOULD MEAN THERE WOULD BE

NO MONEY LEFT FOR ANYTHING.

THE FEDERAL DEBT WOULD

CONSUME ALL OF THE AVAILABLE

FUNDS.

AND THE ONLY WAY THEY COULD

PAY FOR IT IS EITHER TO

DEFAULT ON THE OBLIGATIONS,

WHICH IN A SENSE IS

UNTHINKABLE HERE FOR AMERICA

TO BE LIKE ARGENTINA, OR IT

WOULD MEAN THAT TAXES WOULD

JUST GET TO BE

CONFISCALTORY, AND THAT'S

WHERE WE'RE HEADING AS A

SOCIETY.

WHAT FRANKLIN GRAHAM HAD TO

SAY, HE IS RIGHT ON IN HIS

ANALYSIS.

IT IS COMING UNLESS

SOMETHING IS DONE.

SOMETHING HAS GOT TO BE DONE

TO STOP WASTING MONEY.

Terry: IT SEEMS LIKE

THAT IS A MESSAGE WE KEEP

HEARING AND HEARING AND

HEARING.

Pat: BUT NOBODY

LISTENS.

WE WANT TO STOP THE WASTE,

BUT WE DON'T WANT TO GIVE UP

THIS PROGRAM.

WE WANT TO STOP WASTE, BUT

YOU CAN'T CUT THE SCHOOL

LUNCHES.

Terry: AND IN THE

COUNTRIES WHERE THEY HAVE

DONE ANY OF THEE MEASURES,

THERE IS RIOTING IN THE

STREETS.

Pat: PEOPLE DON'T WANT

TO GIVE UP THEIR GOODIES.

Terry: THEY DON'T GET

THE MESSAGE.

HERE IS A SERIOUS ONE.

HOW ABOUT AMPUTATIONS FOR

THEFT, STONING FOR

ADULTERY.

IF YOU'RE AFRAID OF IT,

DON'T STEAL.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE

STONED TO DEATH, DON'T

COMMIT ADULTERY.

Terry: A CHILLING LOOK

AT LIFE UNDER SHARI'A LAW IN

LONDON.

IT BEGS THE QUESTION: COULD

THE U.S. BE NEXT?

Pat: IT SOUNDS

UNTHINKABLE, ISLAMIC LAW

BEING PRACTICED NOT ONLY IN

SAUDI ARABIA, BUT IN EUROPE,

INCLUDING PARTS OF LONDON

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, WE'RE

ALREADY SEEING SIGNS OF IT

RIGHT HERE IN THE U.S.A.

ERIC STACKELBACH HAS THIS

SHOCKING REPORT.

Reporter: STONING FOR

ADULTERY, AMPUTATIONS FOR

THEFT, DEATH FOR APOSTATES,

AND SECOND CLASS STATUS FOR

CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.

THIS IS LIFE UNDER SHARI'A

LAW.

THE ISLAMIC SYSTEM PRACTICED

IN COUNTRIES LIKE IRAN,

SAUDI ARABIA, AND GREAT

BRITAIN.

YES, GREAT BRITAIN.

THERE ARE REPORTEDLY SOME 85

SHARI'A CORT COURTS

OPERATING THERE.

WITH ISLAMIC JUDGES THERE.

WE WENT TO PROCEEDINGS,

AND THERE WERE A COUPLE OF

ISLAMIC JUDGES SITTING UP

ABOVE THE REST.

AND THERE WAS ONE MUSLIM

WOMAN SUING FOR DIVORCE.

Reporter: ALLEN CRAIG

IS A FORMER CITY COUNCILLOR

IN EAST LONDON, HOME TO

SEVERAL SHARI'A COURTS WHERE

WOMEN FACE OPEN

DISCRIMINATION.

THE WOMEN'S WITNESS VALUE

IS HALF OF THAT OF A MAN.

THEY WOULD TEND, THEREFORE,

TO TAKE THE MAN'S POSITION

IN A DIVORCE.

Reporter: CRAIG IS

WORKING WITH BARONESS

CAROLYN COX, PROTECTING

WOMEN FROM THE SHARI'A

OPPRESSION.

MUSLIMS FACE TEMPTATION TO

SETTLE THINGS THE SHARI'A

WAY.

AND SOME WRONGLY BELIEVE

ISLAMIC COURTS ARE THEIR OWN

OPTION.

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO SAY

THAT MUSLIM WOMEN IN THIS

COUNTRY NEED TO BE INFORMED

THEY HAVE BETTER RIGHTS

UNDER ENGLISH LAW.

Reporter: SHARI'A LAWS

OPERATE OUTSIDE OF BRITISH

COMMON LAW.

THEIR DEFENDERS SAY THE

COURTS ARE LEGAL UNDER A

1996 ARBITRATION ACT THAT

ALLOWS PEOPLE TO SETTLE

DIFFERENCES THROUGH METHODS

OF THEIR OWN CHOOSING.

THESE COURTS HAVE POPPED UP

IN SEVERAL BRITISH CITIES

WITH LARGE MUSLIM

POPULATION, INCLUDING

BIRMINGHAM, BRADFORD,

MANCHESTER, AND LONDON.

THIS IS THE TOWER HAMLET

SECTION OF EAST LONDON.

IT IS REALLY THE EPICENTER

OF THE SHARI'A MOVEMENT IN

GREAT BRITAIN.

THIS HAS BEEN DUBBED THE

ISLAMIC REPUBLIC.

CRITICS SAY HE HAS TIES TO

EXTREMIST GROUPS.

HIS OFFICE DECLINED CBN

NEWS' REQUEST FOR AN

INTERVIEW.

GAYS HAVE BEEN BEATEN IN THE

STREETS.

IF PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF

IT, DON'T STEAL.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE

STONED TO DEATH, DON'T

COMMIT ADULTERY.

Reporter: HE WANTS

SHARI'A LAW TO RULE GREAT

BRITAIN.

LAST YEAR HIS FOLLOWERS PUT

UP POSTERS LABELLING IT A

SHARI'A-CONTROLLED ZONE,

WHERE ISLAMIC RULES ARE

ENFORCED.

WE'RE SITTING IN A

BEAUTIFUL PARK.

WOULD THIS PARK LOOK

DIFFERENT IF SHARI'A CAME TO

THE U.K.?

SUDDENLY THE ADULT WOMAN

WOULD HAVE TO COVER HIMSELF,

AS WOULD THE MAN.

Reporter: CRAIG FEARS

THE GROWTH OF SHARI'A LAW

COULD LEAD TO MUSLIM EN

CLEAVES ISOLATED FROM MAIN

TRAIN BRITISH SOCIETY.

MY VISION IS THOSE WHO

ISOLATE THEMSELVES, THOSE

WHO SEPARATE THEMSELVES, IS

GROWING FASTER THAN THOSE

WHO WHAT WE WILL CALL

PROGRESS.

A BIG MARKER FOR THAT WOULD

BE THE NUMBER OF WOMEN, THE

GROWTH OF THE NUMBER OF

WOMEN, AROUND HERE WEARING

THE FULL FACE VEIL, THE FULL

BURQA, THE FACE VEIL.

IT IS EXTRAORDINARY HOW

YOUNGER AND YOUNGER THE

WOMEN GET.

Reporter: SO COULD

SHARI'A COURTS COME TO

AMERICA?

THE IDEA SOUNDS FAR-FETCHED

TO SOME.

YET ACCORDING TO THE CENTER

FOR SECURITY POLICY IN

WASHINGTON, THERE HAVE BEEN

SOME 50 COURT CASES IN AT

LEAST 23 STATES THAT HAVE

SEEN CONFLICTS BETWEEN

SHARI'A LAW AND AMERICAN

STATE LAW.

AND FOUR STATES HAVE ADOPTED

LEGISLATION CALLED AMERICAN

LAWS FOR AMERICAN COURTS

THAT WOULD PROTECT U.S.

CITIZENS FROM THE USE OF ANY

TYPE OF FOREIGN LAW, LIKE

SHARI'A, IN THE COURTROOM.

BACK IN EAST LONDON, CRAIG

SAYS THE FIGHT AGAINST

SHARI'A IS MUCH MORE THAN A

RELIGIOUS OR LEGAL ISSUE.

IT IS ACTUALLY A HUMAN

RIGHTS ISSUE.

WE'RE WORKING WITH

NON-CHRISTIANS ON THIS

TRYING TO BOLSTER AND

STRENGTHEN THE POSITION FOR

MUSLIM WOMEN.

Reporter: ERIC

STACKELBACH, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM EAST LONDON.

Pat: WHAT IS THE OLD

THING ABOUT THE FROG IN THE

WATER?

YOU PUT HIM IN A VAT OF COLD

WATER AND SLOWLY TURN THE

HEAT UP, AND HE JUST SWIMS

HAPPILY ALONG UNTIL THE TIME

COMES WHEN HE IS COOKED AND

HE IS DEAD.

YOU DROP INTO HIM BOILING

WATER, HE'LL JUMP OUT.

BUT THEY'RE NOT BOILING IT.

THEY'RE JUST TURNING UP THE

HEAT LITTLE BY LITTLE BY

LITTLE, AND THE BRITS DON'T

SEEM TO HAVE SENSE ENOUGH TO

KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, YOU'LL

MEET A WOMAN WHO WAS HEALED

OF CRIPPLING ARTHRITIS IN AN

INSTANT.

PLUS WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS.

AND LATER ON, ESCAPING THE

VAMPIRE.

WHAT TWILIGHT LOVERS ARE

REALLY LOOKING FOR, AND HOW

YOU CAN GIVE IT TO THEM.

Terry: WELL, ARTHRITIS

IS THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF

DISABILITY IN AMERICA.

MORE THAN 20 MILLION

INDIVIDUALS WITH ARTHRITIS

SUFFER PAIN ON A DAILY

BASIS.

AMELIA HUBB USED TO BE ONE

OF THEM, BUT NOT ANYMORE

BECAUSE AMELIA WAS HEALED IN

AN INSTANT.

Reporter: EVERY DAY,

AMELIA HUBB WOKE UP TO

CRIPPLING PAIN IN HER HIPS.

GETTING UP FROM BED IN

THE MORNING, IT WAS ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE.

OR WHEN I SIT FOR TOO LONG

ON THE CHAIR, I HAVE TO GET

UP.

I HAVE TO GET UP SLOWLY AND

WAIT A FEW MINUTES TO BE

ABLE TO WALK.

THEY SENT ME TO A SPECIALIST

BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT I HAD

RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.

BUT THEY CHECKED ME, AND

THEY SAID YOU HAVE VERY BAD

ARTHRITIS OF THE HIPS, AND I

DON'T GIVE YOUR HIPS MORE

THAN A YEAR OF LIFE.

Reporter: HE ALSO TOLL

HE TOLD HER HIP REPLACEMENT

SURGERY WAS INEVITABLE.

SHE TOOK MEDICATION TO NUMB

HER ACHES.

I COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT

THOSE PILLS.

I USED TO TAKE TWO,

SOMETIMES THREE,

PAINKILLERS.

Reporter: THE PAIN

PERSISTED, AND YET SHE HELD

DOWN HER JOB AT A

RESTAURANT.

SOMETIMES AT WORK I HAD

TO START WALKING SLOWLY AND

HOLD MYSELF FROM THE COUNTER

OR THE CHAIRS THAT ARE THERE

WITHOUT PEOPLE NOTICING OR

SIT DOWN BECAUSE I THOUGHT I

WOULD JUST FALL DOWN FROM

THE PAIN.

Reporter: AND AFTER

WORK, SHE HAD TO CONQUER THE

STAIRS IN HER SECOND-STORY

APARTMENT.

IT WAS JUST TERRIBLE.

ONE STEP, WAIT.

ANOTHER STEP, WAIT.

IT WAS REALLY HARD TO GET UP

THOSE STEPS, AND THERE IS NO

ELEVATORS HERE.

Reporter: AND ONE

MORNING AMELIA WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

PAT ROBERTSON WAS PRAYING

FOR PEOPLE TO BE HEALED.

SUDDENLY PAT SAYS

SOMEBODY WITH ARTHRITIS, YOU

ARE HEALED.

AND I JUST JUMPED, AND I

SAID I RECEIVE THAT.

THAT'S FOR ME.

THAT'S FOR ME.

AND I FELT IT COMING ALL THE

WAY DOWN FROM MY FEET, UP,

UP, UP, UNTIL IT STOPPED

HERE.

AND I STARTED SCREAMING,

CRYING.

NO MORE PAIN SINCE THEN.

NO PAIN AT ALL.

AND NO MORE PILLS.

I HAVEN'T HAD TO.

I CAN SHOW YOU THE

CONTAINER.

IT IS FULL OF PILLS, AND THE

DATE.

I HAVEN'T USED THEM.

I DON'T HAVE TO.

I'M HEALED.

IT IS NOT JUST -- PEOPLE

THINK IT IS A COINCIDENCE

THAT IT JUST HAPPENED.

BUT, NO, IT FROM THE LORD.

THE LORD HAS BEEN SO GOOD TO

ME.

SO GOOD.

ANY TIME I HAVE ANY KIND OF

TROUBLE, ALWAYS THE LORD WAS

THERE FOR ME, ALWAYS.

Terry: AMELIA, WHAT A

WONDERFUL STORY.

YOU CAN SEE STILL THE

SURPRISED JOY IN HER FACE

THAT GOD HAS TOUCHED HER.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT THAT

SUFFER, AND SUDDENLY IT IS

GONE.

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW HER.

I'VE NEVER SEEN HER.

BUT GOD KNEW HER.

GOD KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HER

PROBLEM WAS.

IT IS A CREATIVE WORD -- WE

SPEAK IN THE POWER OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE

CREATIVE WORD GOES FORWARD.

Terry: YOU DON'T KNOW

THIS PERSON, EITHER, BUT LET

ME TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED TO

HER.

THIS IS TRISH, SHE LIVES IN

SALISBURY, NORTH CAROLINA.

SHE NOTICED SHE HAD A SOFT

GROWTH IN HER LEFT ARM,

BETWEEN HER SHOULDER AND HER

ELBOW.

IT WASN'T PAINFUL, BUT SHE

WAS CONSTANTLY AWARE OF IT.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING THE

PROGRAM, AND SHE HEARD, PAT,

YOU GIVE THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, THERE IS A WOMAN

WHO HAS THIS SWELLING, LIKE

A BALLOON.

IT IS GOING DOWN AND YOU'RE

GOING TO BE COMPLETELY

HEALED.

SHE CLAIMED THE HEALING.

WHEN SHE REACHED FOR THE

GROWTH, IT WAS ALREADY

GONE.

SHE IMMEDIATELY KNEW IT WAS

GOD WHO HAD HEALED HER.

Pat: PRAISE THE LORD.

YOU HAVE ANOTHER LADY HERE

THAT YOU HAD A WORD ABOUT A

BURNING SKIN CONDITION, AND

SHE HAD HAD THIS THING, AND

IT COVERED THE SHOULDERS,

DOWN TO THE ELBOWS.

YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW MUCH HE

HURT.

SHE HEARD THE WORD, CLAIMED

IT, AND SHE WAS HEALED.

FOLKS, WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE GOD TOGETHER.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE GOD TO

HEAL YOU.

COMING UP ON THANKSGIVING,

THIS WILL GIVE YOU SOMETHING

TO BE THANKFUL ABOUT, GIVING

PRAISE.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY THAT GOD

WHO CREATED THE WORLD WE'RE

GOING TO ASK TO TOUCH YOU.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT SOME

LITTLE DOLL THAT PEOPLE HAVE

MADE UP.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.

AND HE INVITES US TO COME

AND TALK TO HIM.

AND HE, IN TURN, WILL BLESS

YOU.

NOW TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS.

I'LL ASK YOU WHEREVER YOU

ARE, WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.

FOCUS ON IT RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS THE DAY.

NOT NEXT WEEK, NOT NEXT

YEAR, BUT NOW.

FATHER, THANK YOU FOR THESE

ONES THAT HAVE BEEN TOUCHED

AND HEALED.

THANK YOU SO, LORD, FOR THE

BLESSING OF GOD.

THANK YOU SO THAT YOU LOVE

US SO MUCH.

AND PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT

WE SAY TO YOU RIGHT NOW

WE'RE NOT WORTHY OF YOUR

TOUCH.

WE'RE NOT WORTHY OF ANSWERS

TO PRAYER.

WE'RE NOT WORTHY TO COME

INTO YOUR PRESENCE.

BUT ONLY BECAUSE OF YOUR

LOVE, BECAUSE OF THE

SACRIFICE OF JESUS, CAN WE

COME BEFORE YOU.

SO RIGHT NOW WE COME,

SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF MANY,

MANY PEOPLE WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM.

THEY'RE HURTING, LORD.

NOW, GOD, WE COME BEFORE YOU

WITH PEOPLE WITH ARTHRITIS.

THEIR JOINTS ARE SWOLLEN.

THEY CANNOT MOVE THEIR

FINGERS AND HANDS AND

ELBOWS.

THEY HAVE PROBLEMS IN THEIR

SHOULDERS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST

OF NAZARETH, WE SPEAK THE

WORD OF FAITH.

MAY THIS ARTHRITIS BE

HEALED.

BE TOUCHED BY THE POWER OF

GOD.

TERRY?

Terry: IT'S KIND OF

STRANGE, THERE IS SOMEONE,

YOU HAVE A LONG, DEEP

SCRATCH ON YOU.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE HAD A

FIGHT WITH SOMEONE OR IF IT

IS FROM AN ANIMAL OR WHAT IT

IS.

BUT IT'S SWOLLEN AND RED AND

INFECTED, AND GOD IS HEALING

THAT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

AND THE HEALING IS NOT JUST

FOR THE RELEASE OF THE

DISCOMFORT OF THIS THING.

IT IS FOR YOU TO KNOW THAT

HE IS REAL.

THAT HE SEES YOU AND KNOWS

YOU AND IS DOING SOMETHING

SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU TODAY.

Pat: AND THERE IS A

WOMAN WATCHING RIGHT NOW,

AND YOU'VE GOT A GROWTH --

IT'S LIKE A BENIGN TUMOR IN

YOUR STOMACH, AND IT IS WAY

BIG, AND YOUR STOMACH IS

DISTENDED.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR

STOMACH, YOUR ABDOMEN RIGHT

AT THIS MOMENT, AND IN THE

NAME OF JESUS, BE HEALED.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSEWHERE YOU HAVE AN ODD

JAW SITUATION, WHERE IT IS

ALMOST LIKE YOUR JAW HAS

LOCKED NO AN OFF POSITION.

IT IS NOT THE WAY IT SHOULD

BE FOR IT TO BE ABLE TO MOVE

WELL.

JUST TOUCH YOUR JAW AS GOD

TOTALLY REPLACES IT AND SETS

THAT RIGHT.

Pat: NECK MUSCLES

REPLACED, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, YOU'RE HEALED.

SOMEONE, YOU'VE GOT

LEUKEMIA, AND THE DOCTORS

SAID IT IS HOPELESS.

IT IS NOT HOPELESS.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

YOUR BLOOD IS GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY FREE OF ANY

CARCINOGENIC MATERIAL.

YOUR BODY WILL BE WHOLE IN

JESUS' NAME.

NOW, LORD, FOR THESE AND ALL

OVER THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE

WATCHING, WHO HAVE NEEDS,

FINANCIAL NEEDS, FAMILY

NEEDS, DO MIRACLES, WE PRAY,

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: WOW!

Terry: UH-HUH.

HE IS ABLE.

HE IS GOOD.

HE'S REAL.

WELL, STILL AHEAD, WE'VE GOT

YOUR E-MAIL.

MARSHA WANTS TO KNOW, IS IT

OKAY FOR CHRISTIANS TO HAVE

ACUPUNCTURE.

WE'LL BRING IT ON WITH THAT

QUESTION AND MORE.

PLUS, WHAT'S REALLY BEHIND

THE TWILIGHT OBSESSION.

FIND OUT.

ALL OF THAT COMING UP.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

THE FREEDOM FROM RELIGION

FOUNDATION WANTS AN ICONIC

CROSS ON A MOUNTAIN IN

CALIFORNIA TO COME DOWN.

THE CROSS HAS STOOD ON

MT. RUBADO IN RIVERSIDE FOR

MORE THAN 100 YEARS.

THE GROUP IS THREATENING TO

SUE THE CITY IF THEY DON'T

TAKE IT DOWN.

THEY SAY THE FIRST AMEND THE

CLAUSE PROHIBITS RELIGION ON

PUBLIC LAND.

THE CROSS DRAWS THOUSANDS OF

VISITORS EACH YEAR.

MANY SAY THEY WOULD HATE TO

SEE IT GO AWAY.

THE CITY WILL MAKE A

DECISION ON WHETHER TO SELL

THE CROSS NEXT YEAR.

A PROSECUTOR IN BRAZIL IS

TRYING TO REMOVE THE PHRASE

"GOD BE PRAISED," FROM THAT

COUNTRY'S MONEY.

THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR ARGUES

THAT BRAZIL IS A SECULAR

STATE, AND THAT THE PHRASE

DISREGARDS THE RIGHTS OF

NON-CHRISTIANS.

THIS WEEK HE ASKED THE

FEDERAL COURT TO ORDER THE

PHRASE REMOVED.

HE SAYS MOST BRAZILIANS ARE

CHRISTIANS, BUT HE SAYS

MENTIONING GOD VIOLATES THE

RIGHTS OF THOSE WHO FOLLOW A

DIFFERENT RELIGION OR DON'T

BELIEVE IN GOD.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE HAVE SOME

E-MAIL QUESTIONS THAT WE

WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS RIGHT

NOW.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

MARSHA, WHO SAYS, "IS IT

OKAY FOR CHRISTIANS TO HAVE

ACUPUNCTURE?"

Pat: I DON'T SEE

ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT, AS

LONG AS YOU DON'T ATTACH

SOME SPIRITUAL THING.

THE THOUGHT ABOUT

ACUPUNCTURE IS THAT THERE

ARE VARIOUS ELECTRICAL

IMPULSES FLOWING AROUND.

YOU GET INTO ALL THIS

CHINESE BUSINESS ABOUT YING

AND YAN, AND YOU'VE GOT TO

HAVE BALANCE.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU, WE HAVE

HORSES, AND ONE PARTICULAR

HORSE, THAT IS A PERFORMANCE

HORSE, AND WE HAVE AN

ACUPUNCTURIST WHO WORKS ON

THE HORSES, AND THE HORSES

SEEM TO LOVE IT.

Terry: I HAVE A NUMBER

OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE SERIOUS

PAIN ISSUES WHO HAVE FOUND

TREMENDOUS RELIEF THROUGH

ACUPUNCTURE.

Pat: I WAS OVER IN

CHINA, AND MY WIFE WAS A

NURSE, AND WE WERE SEEING

PEOPLE WHO HAVE OPERATIONS

AND THEY DO ACUPUNCTURE.

THEY PUT SOMETHING INTO A

SENSITIVE AREA AND IT SEEMS

TO -- THEY SEE SOME

ELECTRICAL IMPULSES GO UNDER

THE DIRECTIONS.

AS LONG AS YOU KEEP IT INTO

THE ELECTRICAL IMPULSES,

THAT'S COOL.

BUT WHEN YOU GET INTO YING

AND YANAND THEN YOU'RE IN

TROUBLE.

Terry: THIS IS ANNIE

WHO SAYS, "I RECENTLY GAVE

MY LIFE OVER TO THE LORD.

I'M SO EXCITED, I WANT

EVERYONE TO HAVE WHAT THE

LORD HAS GIVEN ME.

I FIND MYSELF TALKING ABOUT

GOD'S GRACE, AND NOT ALL OF

MY FRIENDS LIKE THIS.

SHOULD I LET GO OF ALL OF MY

UNBELIEVING FRIENDS?"

Pat: HONEY, GOD BLESS

YOU, AND KEEP TALKING.

I HEARD ONE PERSON, THE

INDIVIDUAL SAID, I HATED THE

WAY YOU LOOKED, I HATED THE

CLOTHES YOU WORE, BUT ONE OF

THESE DAYS I FINALLY

ACCEPTED WHAT YOU'RE TELLING

ME.

IN ANY EVENT, YOU'RE A

WITNESS FOR THE LORD, AND

THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU.

BUT WE USE WISDOM WITH WHAT

WE DO.

WE DON'T CAST PEARLS BEFORE

SWINE.

AND LEST THEY TURN AND REND

YOU, SO YOU PUT OUT THE

PERILS OF GOD'S TRUTH IN

FRONT OF SCOFFING PEOPLE,

THEY'LL TURN AND HURT YOU.

JESUS WARNED ABOUT THAT.

Terry: JEAN SAYS, "I

HEAR OF THE STOCK MARKET

TAKING A PLUNGE.

SHOULD I LIQUIDATE MY STOCK

IN A MAJOR OIL COMPANY.

I HAVE 3,000 SHARES THAT PAY

GOOD DIVIDENDS.

I'VE HAD THIS STOCK FOR 12

YEARS?"

Pat: YOU'RE LOOKING AT

PAYING CAPITAL GAINS, TAX.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT LOSING THE

REVENUE.

AND YOU DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE

OIL COMPANY'S STOCKS ARE

GOING TO GO DOWN.

NOW, THERE ARE WAYS YOU

COULD HEDGE THAT.

YOU COULD BUY SOME PUTS ON

THAT MANY SHARES AT A STRIKE

PRICE A LITTLE DIFFERENT

FROM TODAY, SO THAT IF THE

THING DID GO DOWN, YOU'D GET

PAID ON ACCOUNT OF THE PUT.

BUT I THINK LIQUIDATING

STOCK JUST BECAUSE A BUNCH

OF PEOPLE SAY THERE IS GOING

TO BE, YOU KNOW, A

COLLAPSE -- ULTIMATELY, THE

STOCK MARKET IS GOING TO GO

UP.

BUT IN YOUR CASE, I WOULD

THINK IF YOU REALLY ARE

CONCERNED, I'D BUY ENOUGH

PUTS TO MAKE YOU

COMFORTABLE.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "I'VE BEEN SAVED

FOR 24 YEARS AND HAVE TRIED

TO RAISE MY CHILDREN IN

JESUS' WORD.

BUT LATELY, I AM FEELING

VERY AFRAID MY CHILDREN WILL

ARE LEFT BEHIND IN THE

RAPTURE.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY

ABOUT IT?"

Pat: THE BIBLE TALKS

ABOUT THOU SHALT BE SAVED IN

YOUR HOUSEHOLD.

I BELIEVE YOUR CHILDREN ARE

GOING TO BE WITH YOU.

I MEAN, LOOK, I DISAGREE

WITH SOME OF THESE RAPTURE

TYPES.

I BELIEVE IN RAPTURE, BUT I

DON'T BELIEVE THAT THERE IS

GOING TO BE A TIME WHEN --

Terry: WE ESCAPE

EVERYTHING --

Pat: -- WHERE AIRPLANES

ARE FLYING ALONG AND THE

PILOT SUDDENLY LEAVES HIS

FLIGHT DECK AND GOES OFF AND

THE PLANE DOESN'T HAVE A

PILOT.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT TRAINS

ARE GOING TO BE WITHOUT

ENGINEERS.

I THINK ALL OF THAT IS

FANTASY.

GOD IS NOT GOING TO DO

SOMETHING LIKE THAT BECAUSE

IT IS BIZARRE.

IT AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN.

BUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN, AT THE

END OF THE AGE, WHEN JESUS

COMES BACK AGAIN.

HE'S GOING TO TAKE HIS OWN.

HE SAYS, I'LL SEND THE

ANGELS AND THEY'LL GATHER MY

PEOPLE UNTO THEMSELVES.

AND HE WANTS YOUR CHILDREN

TO BE WITH YOU.

BUT DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

GOOD GRIEF.

JUST MAKE SURE THEY KNOW THE

LORD AND LIVE TOGETHER.

Terry: AND IF THEY

DON'T, PRAY.

AND PRAY SOME MORE.

Pat: PRAY, AND THEY

WILL.

YES.

Terry: THIS IS GEORGE

WHO SAYS, "MANY PEOPLE

BELIEVE I'M CALLED TO BE A

PREACHER, BUT THIS IS NOT

WHAT I WANT TO DO WITH MY

LIFE.

HOW DO I GAIN THE STRENGTH

TO FULFILL MY CALLING, EVEN

THOUGH IT IS NOT WHAT I WANT

TO DO?"

Pat: WELL, YOU DON'T

BECOME A PREACHER BECAUSE

YOUR FRIENDS THINK YOU OUGHT

TO BE.

THAT'S RIDICULOUS.

LISTEN, I'VE SAID BEFORE,

AND TERRY KIND OF RAISED HER

EYEBROWS WHEN I SAID IT, BUT

IT'S TRUE, IF THERE IS

ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN DO AND

BE VERY HAPPY DOING IT, THEN

THE CALL OF GOD IS NOT ON

YOUR LIFE.

PAUL SAID, WOE IS ME IF I

PREACH NOT THE GOSPEL.

I HAVE A COMMISSION PLACED

UPON ME.

I'VE GOT TO PREACH.

JEREMIAH SAID THERE IS A

FIRE BURNING INSIDE OF ME.

I'VE GOT TO SPEAK.

IT'S THAT KIND OF THING.

AND THAT DOESN'T COME ABOUT

FROM YOUR FRIENDS.

EVEN IF YOUR FRIENDS THINK

YOU'RE A REAL PREACHER, YOU

OUGHT TO BE A PREACHER -- NO

WAY.

THAT'S NOT THE WAY YOU GET A

CALL FROM THE LORD.

Terry: MY EYEBROWS ARE

NOT RAISED TODAY.

Pat: I HAD TO ASSUME IT

SO THERE WAS NO SHOCK.

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUBMIT

MORE, GO TO cbn.com AND

WE'LL TRY TO ANSWER THEM.

PAT?

Pat: WHEN BABY TASHA

WAS BORN WITH SERIOUS BIRTH

DEFECTS, HER PARENTS KNEW

THERE WAS NO WAY THEY COULD

HELP HER.

THEY BARELY HAD ENOUGH MONEY

JUST TO SURVIVE, AND TASHA

NEEDED NOT ONE, BUT TWO,

MAJOR OPERATIONS.

Reporter: 2-YEAR-OLD

TASHA IS NOT YET AWARE OF

HER CLEFT LIP OR THE LUMP

GROWING ON HER FOREHEAD, BUT

HER PARENTS CERTAINLY ARE.

AS I WAS HOLDING HER IN

MY ARMS, I LOOKED AT HER,

AND I COULDN'T HOLD BACK MY

TEARS.

I WONDER IF HER CONDITION

COULD BE FIXED.

WHENEVER I GIVE HER MILK OR

FOOD, IT CAME OUT OF HER

NOSE.

I WONDERED HOW LONG SHE

WOULD SURVIVE.

Reporter: TASHA'S

PARENTS LOVE HER VERY MUCH.

TASHA AND I ARE VERY

CLOSE BECAUSE I CARE FOR HER

MOST OF THE TIME.

WHENEVER I HAVE TO GO TO THE

MARKET, SHE CRIES, WANTING

TO GO WITH ME.

Reporter: TASHA'S

PARENTS ARE CHRISTIANS.

THEY LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN IN

INDONESIA, WHERE LAMSON

EARNS A LIVING SELLING BIRD

FOOD.

WITH HIS SMALL INCOME, THEY

KNEW THAT PAYING FOR SURGERY

WAS OUT OF THE QUESTION.

CBN MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR

TASHA TO HAVE THE LEFT LIP

SURGERY FOR FREE.

THE NEWS WAS SUCH AN

ENCOURAGEMENT.

I THOUGHT THIS IS GOD'S WAY

OF PROVIDING HEALING FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

Reporter: TASHA'S CLEFT

LIP SURGERY WAS SUCCESSFUL.

WE THEN ARRANGED FOR A

SECOND SURGERY TO REMOVE THE

GROWTH ON HER FOREHEAD.

SHE HAS CURED HER LIFE.

OUR FEARS ABOUT TASHA'S

FUTURE ARE GONE.

WE FEEL LIKE LEAPING FOR

JOY.

I'M THANKFUL FOR EVERYONE

WHO HELPED HER.

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS

CBN AND THAT THEY WILL KEEP

HELPING PEOPLE IN NEED.

Pat: JUST TO THINK A

SIMPLE OPERATION CAN CHANGE

A CHILD'S LIFE.

LEFT PALATE.

IT COSTS ABOUT $500.

>$500.

THAT'S A "700 CLUB" GOLD

MEMBERSHIP.

IT CHANGED SOMEBODY'S LIFE

FOREVER.

LITTLE TASHA WILL NEVER BE

THE SAME BECAUSE YOU WERE

THERE FOR HER.

IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

AND THERE ARE THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

THEY GET CLEAN DRINKING

WATER.

THEY GET ANTI-PARASITE

MEDICINE.

AND NOT TO MENTION THE JOY

OF KNOWING JESUS.

WE WANT YOU TO BE PART OF

THIS MINISTRY.

AND WE HAVE SOMETHING CALLED

"GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA, HOW

TO PREPARE FOR THE DAYS

AHEAD."

I'VE DONE A D.V.D. THAT

TALKS ABOUT WHERE GOD SET

THIS COUNTRY -- THE COVENANT

THAT GOD MADE WITH AMERICA.

AND I WANT YOU TO HAVE

THIS.

AND AS YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB" WITH YOUR PLEDGE OF

$20 A MONTH, WE WILL SEND

THIS TWO YOU WITH OUR

GRATITUDE.

SO CALL IN RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO FIND OUT

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR

IS WHY YOUNG GIRLS WANT TO

GET BITTEN IN THE NECK BY

VAMPIRES.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT.

UP NEXT, THE TWILIGHT

OBSESSION.

WHAT'S REALLY BEHIND TODAY'S

VAMPIRE CRAZE.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, THE

TWILIGHT BOOKS HAVE SOLD

MORE THAN 100 MILLION

COPIES, AND THEY'VE BEEN

TRANSLATED INTO 37

LANGUAGES.

THE MOVIES HAVE BEEN

BLOCKBUSTERS AT THE BOX

OFFICE.

AND TONIGHT THE FINALE OF

THE SAGA OPENS IN SELECTED

THEATERS, AND IT IS EXPECTED

TO BREAK SALES RECORDS.

TAKE A LOOK.

AFTER 18 YEARS OF BEING

UTTERLY ORDINARY, I FINALLY

FOUND THAT I COULD SHINE.

I DIDN'T EXPECT YOU TO

SEEM SO...YOU.

THE FAMILY IS IN DANGER,

I NEED YOUR HELP.

WE WILL JOIN YOU.

WE WILL STAND WITH YOU.

I'VE NEVER BEEN AFRAID OF

VAMPIRES.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" THE AUTHOR

OF THE BOOK "ESCAPING THE

VAMPIRE," KIMBERLY POWERS.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: THE IDEA OF

VAMPIRES HAS BEEN AROUND FOR

YEARS, BUT USUALLY IN THE

NEGATIVE CONCEPT.

TALK A BUILT ABOUT WHAT IS

HAPPENING WITH THIS SERIES

THAT STRUCK A CHORD IN OUR

CULTURE.

THERE HAS BEEN SUCH A

CHANGE AND THE LAST 50

YEARS.

THERE IS A CHANGE FROM THIS

EVIL, FANGED, DARK AND BLACK

SCARY FEATURE TO THIS

HANDSOME, DEBONAIR,

MYSTERIOUS CREATURE THAT

DRAWS IN BECAUSE OF THE

MYSTERY.

AND THE DRAW TO THESE TEENS

IS QUITE AMAZING.

Terry: AND HERE IS THE

LAST SEGMENT OF THIS OPENING

IN THEATERS.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

IT IS THE LAST PIECE FROM

ALL OF THE BOOKS SERIES.

IT IS THE FIFTH MOVIE.

IT IS GOING TO LOOK AT THE

STORY, THE ENDING OF THIS

YOUNG WOMAN, BELLA, WHO

THEY'VE SEEN GROW THROUGHOUT

THE MOVIE.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THE END

OF THE SAGA, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS AS

SHE NOW HAS A CHILD.

AND SHE SAYS THAT THIS IS

WHAT SHE HAS BEEN BORN TO

DO, TO BE A VAMPIRE.

SO I THOUGHT THAT WAS QUITE

INTRIGUING.

Terry: INTERESTING IT

SHOULD END ON THE NOTE OF

BELLA'S LIFE.

CERTAINLY THERE HAVE BEEN

MEN AND WOMEN, YOUNG MEN AND

WOMEN, WHO HAVE BEEN

INTERESTED IN THIS SERIOUS,

BUT PRIMARILY IT HAS BEEN

YOUNG WOMEN THAT HAVE REALLY

HAD THIS STRONG, STRONG

ATTRACTION.

WHY?

YES.

WELL, IT'S A DRAWING.

I DON'T THINK THAT ALL GIRLS

AND WOMEN ARE DRAWN TO

VAMPIRES, BUT THEY'RE DRAWN

TO THE LOVE. THEY'RE DRAWN

TO THAT STORY, THAT

FORBIDDEN LOVE, OFTENTIMES,

THAT DRAWS US IN BECAUSE OF

THE NEED INSIDE OF EACH OF

US.

Terry: WHY DO YOU THINK

THAT WOMEN IDENTIFY WITH

BELLA?

YOU KNOW, AS I WATCHED IT

THE FIRST TIME, THE MOVIE,

AND AS I WAS READING, I

THOUGHT, SHE IS SO NORMAL.

SHE IS ORDINARY.

YOU KNOW, SHE'S NOT SOME

GLAMOUR PERSON.

SHE IS A NORMAL PERSON.

SHE WAS BEING SOUGHT OUT BY

THIS PERSON WHO EVERYBODY

WANTED TO BE BE WITH, BUT HE

SOUGHT HER OUT.

SO IT WAS KIND OF THE ANSWER

TO HER DESIRE, I'M

SOMEBODY.

AND SHE WAS FULFILLED THAT

WAY.

Terry: THIS ALMOST, IN

SOME QUARTERS, AN OBSESSION

WITH THE SERIES, WOULDN'T

YOU SAY?

I WOULD SAY DEFINITELY

THERE IS AN OBSESSION.

IT'S KIND OF SCARY.

Terry: WHY?

I THINK THEY FOLLOWED THE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BELLA

AND EDWARD.

I THINK IT IS A LOT OF LOVE

RELATIONSHIP, AND IT'S A

LIFE.

IT IS A STORY OUTSIDE OF

THEIR OWN STORY.

WE OFTENTIMES LOOK AT OUR

OWN LIVES AND WE SAY, OH, MY

GOODNESS.

I HAVE THIS SMALL LITTLE

STORY HERE AND I'M NOT WORTH

ANYTHING, AND MY LIFE ISN'T

EXCITING, AND THEN YOU SEE

THIS GLAMOUR STORY OF

ADVENTURE, AND GIRLS ARE

DRAWN TO THAT.

AND IT BECOMES AN

OBSESSION.

Terry: I GUESS THE

INTRIGUING THING IS THAT IT

IS FICTION, YOU KNOW THAT IT

IS FICTION WHILE YOU'RE

READING IT, AND YET THERE IS

SOMETHING IN IT THAT DOES

CONNECT WITH THE HEART OF

ESPECIALLY A YOUNG WOMAN.

IS IT HARMLESS?

WELL, I THINK IT IS

IMPORTANT THAT YOU ARE VERY

CAREFUL WITH HOW YOU ARE

TAKING IN THE MOVIE AND THE

BOOKS.

I THINK THAT THAT'S AN

IMPORTANT PIECE.

BECAUSE OUR HEART IS DRAWN,

AND THEN WE CONNECT.

AND THEN WE START

COMPARING.

AND DECISIONS ARE MADE.

AND -- YEAH.

Terry: I WONDER IF

THERE AREN'T A LOT OF

PARENTS WHO ARE CONCERNED,

NOT NECESSARILY BECAUSE THEY

KNOW WHAT IS GOOD, BAD, OR

INDIFFERENT ABOUT IT, BUT

JUST BECAUSE OF THE LEVEL OF

CONNECTION THAT THEIR KIDS

ARE FEELING.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO

PARENTS WHO KIDS HAVE REALLY

GOTTEN INTO BOTH OF BOOKS

AND THE MOVIES?

RIGHT.

AND IT'S OUT THERE IN ALL

WALKS.

Terry: IT HAS BEEN OUT

THERE ARE FOR A WHILE.

FOUR YEARS.

IT IS AMAZING IT STILL HAS

THE DRAW IT DOES.

I WOULD SAY IT IS A

WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO

COME ALONGSIDE AND SAY,

WHAT'S SO FABULOUS ABOUT

THIS GUY?

WHAT IS IT?

IT IS THE WAY HE TALKS TO

HER AND THE WAY HE RELATES

TO HER.

WELL, LET ME SHARE WITH YOU

THE TRUE LOVE, THE EPIC

STORY OF LOVE THAT YOU CAN

BE A PART OF.

Terry: TALK ABOUT THAT

FOR A LITTLE BIT.

I THINK THAT THERE IS -- YOU

KNOW, ALL OF US HAVE

EXPERIENCED THAT ANGST THAT

COMES WITH GROWING UP, AND

FIGURING OUT WHO AM I AND

WHERE DOES LOVE FIT INTO MY

LIFE.

BUT TALK ABOUT WHAT IS

MISSING IN THE YOUNG MEN AND

WOMEN AND THE EPIC STORY

THAT YOU'RE DISCUSSING.

THERE IS SUCH A LOSS

SOMETIMES BECAUSE YOUNG

GIRLS AND GUYS HAVE BOUGHT

INTO THE LIES THAT IT IS

OKAY IF I HAVE THESE NEEDS

INSIDE, TO SEEK OUT THESE

THINGS TO KIND OF MEET THE

NEED, RATHER THAN SEEKING

OUT THE LOVER OF THEIR SOUL,

THE EPIC LOVE STORY THAT CAN

FILFULFILL EVERY NEED

WITHOUT LEAVING THEM LONELY,

WITHOUT COMING TO A PLACE

WHERE THEY'RE AT A LOSS.

Terry: SO YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT THE LORD WHO

SEEKS US OUT, WHO HAS

SACRIFICED EVERYTHING FOR

US --

ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: THE PROTECTOR OF

OUR SOUL.

YES.

Terry: THERE ARE A LOT

OF PEOPLE TODAY WHO DON'T

KNOW THIS AND DON'T WALK IN

THIS TRUTH.

NO, THEY DON'T.

AND THEY'RE CLUELESS TO BE

FIERCELY PROTECTIVE AND

MORTALS.

AND HE SEEMS DISTANT, BUT HE

IS NOT.

Terry: THIS IS CALLED

"ESCAPING THE VAMPIRE," AND

THEN HAVE YOUR KIDS READ IT

AND USE IT AS A SUBJECT OF

DISCUSSION IN YOUR HOME.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THANK YOU, KIMBERLY.

THANK YOU.

Terry: PAT?

Pat: I THINK WILLIE

NELSON'S GREAT SONG, "MAMAS

DON'T LET YOUR BABIES GROW

UP TO BE COWBOYS," WELL

MAYBE IT SHOULD BE MAMAS,

DON'T LET YOUR KIDS GROW UP

TO BE VAMPIRES.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 1 JOHN: "BY

THIS WE KNOW LOVE BECAUSE HE

LAID DOWN HIS LIFE FOR US."

THAT'S TRUE LOVE.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
