The 700 Club - November 19, 2012

Mark Harting was piloting a small firefighting aircraft when the plane's systems malfunctioned. Plus, Ernest Shannon's attempt to navigate through life's temptations on his own left him a broken man. Read Transcript


Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

THE FIGHTING BETWEEN ISRAEL

AND HAMAS COULD GET WORSE.

ISRAEL IS READY TO STEP UP

ITS ATTACKS AFTER HAMAS

LAUNCHED MISSILES AGAINST

TEL AVIV AND JERUSALEM.

Terry: BEN NE BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU SAYS HAMAS HAS TO

STOP ITS MISSILES BEFORE

THERE CAN BE A CEASE-FIRE.

Reporter: HAMAS

INTENSIFIED ITS MISSILE BAR

RAGES AGAINST SOUTHERN

ISRAEL OVER THE WEEKEND.

MORE THAN 560 ROCKETS HAVE

SLAMMED INTO ISRAEL SO FAR,

WITH MORE THAN ANOTHER 300

INTERCEPTED BY THE IRON DOME

ANTIMISSILE BATTERIES.

THIS MAN'S HOUSE WAS HIT

LAST WEEK, WHILE HIS WIFE

AND CHILDREN SAT PROTECTED

IN THEIR SAFE ROOM.

I

I DON'T WANT TO THINK

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE

DIDN'T HAVE THE SHELTER.

Reporter: ISRAELI HAVE

TARGETED MORE THAN 1350

TERROR SITES IN WHAT THE

ARMY IS CALLING PILLAR OF

SUCCESS.

WE HAVE INFLICTED

SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO THE

WATERS IN THE GAZA STRIP,

INCLUDING THE INTELLIGENT

MINISTRY, THE POLICE

COMPOUND, TRAINING CAMPS.

Reporter: IN ONE CASE,

PALESTINIANS SAY A BOMB

KILLED 11 MEMBERS OF ONE

FAMILY, INCLUDING WOMEN AND

CHILDREN.

BUT ONE SOUTHERN ISRAEL

RESIDENT SAYS THE BAD PRESS

AGAINST ISRAEL ISN'T FAIR.

JUST REMEMBER, EVERY TIME

A CHILAA PERSON HOLDS UP A

CHILD THAT IS HURT, WHICH WE

HOPE THERE IS NOT, THEY HAVE

TO SHOW OUR PICTURES.

WE ARE DOING OUR BEST.

WE KNOW OUR SOLDIERS, THEY

ARE NOT TRYING TO DO

ANYTHING TO THE CIVILIAN

OPERATION.

Reporter: ISRAELI

SUPPORT FOR THE ONGOING

MILITARY OPERATION REMAINS

HUNDREDS.

HUNDREDS OF ISRAELIS

GATHERED AT THE WESTERN WALL

TO PRAY FOR THEIR PROTECTION

AND FOR THE ARMY.

THEY PRAYED PSALM 121: "HE

WHO KEEP EASTERLY NEITHER

SLUMBER OR SLEEP."

SOME WESTERN LEADERS ARE

WARNING ISRAEL NOT TO SEND

ISRAELI SOLDIERS INTO GAZA.

MOSHA al-ALLON SAYS ISRAEL

EXPECTS THE WORLD TO STAND

BEHIND ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO

PROTECT ITSELF.

WE EXPECT OUR ALLIES TO

USE ALL TOOLS AVAILABLE IN

ORDER TO PROTECT OUR

PEOPLE.

Pat: THANKS, JULIE.

NO ONE KNOWS MORE ABOUT THE

DEADLY MISSILE ATTACKS ON

ISRAEL THAN THE PEOPLE WHO

LIVE IN THE COMMUNITY OF

SIDROP.

IT'S ON THE BORDER WITH

GAZA.

AND PEOPLE THERE HAVE LIVED

ON THE FRONT LINES OF THIS

ONGOING BATTLE.

CENTS PECBN'S SCOTT ROSS

RECENTLY VISITED THAT TOWN

TO SEE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO

LIVE UNDER CONSTANT FIRE.

Reporter: THEY CALL IT

"ROCKET TOWN," THE BOMB

SHELTER CAPITAL OF THE

WORT.

WORLD.

FOR MORE THAN A DECADE, THEY

HAVE LIVED UNDER ALMOST

DAILY ROCKET ATTACKS FROM

THE GAZA STRIP.

IS THIS REPRESENTATIVE OF

WHAT YOU'RE DEALING WITH

HERE ALL OF THE TIME?

THE TRUTH IS, A VERY

SMALL FRACTIONS OF THE

ROCKETS THEMSELVES EXPLODED

HERE IN THE REGION.

Reporter: YOU HAVE

PEOPLE GETTING KILLED HERE

IN YOUR TOWN?

WE'VE HAD OVER 44 KILLED

BY ROCKET FIRE, OVER 1200

HAVE SERIOUSLY INJURED.

AT THE SAME TIME, YOU HAVE

AN ENTIRE GENERATION THAT

GREW UP WITH THIS REALITY.

Reporter: DAVID HAS

BEEN BORN AND RAISED IN

STIROP, AND HAS BEEN THE

CITY'S MAYOR FOR MORE THAN

14 YEARS.

YOU LOVE THIS TOWN AND THESE

PEOPLE.

OF COURSE.

SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT LOVE

THIS TOWN CANNOT LIVE HERE.

Reporter: DAY BY DAY,

YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS

LIFESTYLE, WHERE ROCKETS ARE

BEING SHOWERED, LITERALLY,

UPON YOU.

HOW DOES ONE ADJUST TO THAT,

IF YOU EVER DO, REALLY?

IN 2001, IT WAS THE FIRST

MISSILE THAT CLAWNCHED

LAUNCHED THROUGH THIS CITY.

SINCE THEN, WE'VE HAD MORE

THAN 8,000 MISSILES.

Reporter: 8,000?

8,000 MISSILES THAT WENT

ONLY NEWER BEIJING.

BEIRUT.

IT IS A LITTLE TOWN.

YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT

8,000 -- THAT'S ALMOST EVERY

APARTMENT AND HOUSE IN THIS

CITY.

Reporter: HE SAYS MANY

ISRAELIS HERE SUFFER FROM

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS

DISORDER.

THE MAYOR TOOK ME TO A HILL

ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, WHERE

WE COULD SEE JUST HOW CLOSE

THE GAZA STRIP IS.

THIS IS THE BORDER.

IF -- 840 METRES, IT IS

SOMETHING LIKE HALF A MILE.

Reporter: THEY COULD

FIRE ROCKETS AT THESE TOWERS

AND NOT BEND DOWN --

YEAH.

THEY LAUNCH THE ROCKETS

THROUGH THE ELECTRIC POWER.

Reporter: YOU SUPPLY

GAZA --

WE GIVE THEM AND THEY

LAUNCH ROCKETS TO THE

ELECTRIC POWER STATION.

AND THEN THEY COMPLAIN THEY

HAVE DARKNESS.

Reporter: EVERYONE WHO

DRIVES IN STIROP TURNS OFF

THE RADIO AND ROLLS THE

WINDOWS DOWN, READY TO HEAR

THE COLOR RED SIREN TO MAKE

A MAD DASH FOR SAFETY.

AND HERE I AM IN A

PLAYGROUND WHERE KIDS COME

AND PLAY.

AND HERE IS A CATEPILLAR.

AND ANYWHERE ELSE THIS WOULD

BE A NORMAL CATEPILLAR.

BUT THIS IS A LITTLE

DIFFERENT.

THIS IS, IN FACT, A BOMB

SHELTER.

WHEN KIDS COME OUT TO PLAY

AND A SIREN GOES OFF, THEY

HAVE 15 SECONDS TO GET IN

HERE TO BE PROTECTED FROM

FALLING BOMBS.

HOW DOES THIS ENVIRONMENT

AFFECT CHILDREN AS THEY WERE

GROWING UP?

ONLY YESTERDAY I WAS

TALKING TO ONE OF MY

FRIENDS, HER BOY IS IN OUR

KINDERGARTEN.

WE HAD TWO ALARMS YESTERDAY,

OR THE DAY BEFORE -- I DON'T

REMEMBER.

HE WAS SO PANICKED, SHE HAD

TO GET OUT OF WORK AND COME

AND GET HIM.

HE IS ONLY TWO YEARS OLD.

Reporter: TAGARA IS HIS

SOCIAL WORKER.

WE HAVE TO BE AWARE OF A

BOMB SHELTER?

RIDER THERE.

Reporter: TELL ME WHERE

TO RUN.

OKAY.

Reporter: NOTHING MOVED

ME MORE THAN MEETING GARUT,

ARAGON.

SHE WAS SITTING IN HER HOME

WITH A NEIGHBOR CHILD ON HER

LAP.

A ROCKET CRASHED THROUGH THE

ROOM WHERE THEY WERE

SITTING.

THE BOMB COMES THROUGH

THE WALL INTO THE ROOM.

ALL OF THE ROOF WAS CRUSHED

ON US.

FROM THE -- HOW DO YOU

SAY --

Reporter: EXPLOSION?

YEAH, THE EXPLOSION.

THE GIRL WAS, YOU KNOW,

FLYING TO THE CORNER.

THERE WAS FOUR SHRAPNELS IN

MY HEAD.

THEY OPERATED, AND THEY GOT

THREE OF THEM, BUT ONE OF

THEM, IT GOT DEEP INTO THE

BRAIN SO THEY DON'T WANT TO

TOUCH IT.

Reporter: SHE WAS IN

REHAB FOR A YEAR AND A HALF,

BUT NEARLY FIVE YEARS LATER,

HER SON IS STILL AFRAID TO

SLEEP IN HIS ROOM.

THE FAMILIE FAMILY HAS TO

RUN TO THE BOMB SHELTER

SOMETIMES THREE TIMES A

NIGHT.

WHY DO THEY STAY?

IT IS MY COUNTRY.

IT IS MY CITY.

I WAS BORN HERE.

I LOVE IT.

IF YOU WANT TO MOVE, YOU

NEED TO SELL THE HOUSE.

NO ONE WANTS TO BUY IT.

NO ONE WANTS TO COME FROM

OUTSIDE TO LIVE UNDER

BOMBING, YOU KNOW.

BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU, WE

LOVE THIS CITY.

Reporter: HOW DOES IT

AFFECT YOU NOW, WHEN YOU

HEAR THE ROCKETS LANDING,

BECAUSE THEY'RE STILL

SHOOTING THEM HERE.

EVERY TIME I HEARD THE

SIREN, IT TAKES ME BACK

THEN.

AND WHEN I GO DOWN TO THE

SHELTER, I'M SITTING AND I

STOP CRYING.

EVERY TIME AND AGAIN AND

AGAIN.

Reporter: DO YOU

BELIEVE THAT GOD PROTECTED

YOU?

YEAH.

YEAH.

Reporter: YOU DO

BELIEVE THAT?

I BELIEVE THAT, YEAH.

Reporter: YOU'RE NOT

ANGRY WITH GOD HE ALLOWED IT

TO HAPPEN?

NO.

NO.

I -- I THINK NOW, AND I

THOUGHT BACK THEN, THAT IT

WAS A MIRACLE.

AND HE PROTECTS ON ME, AND

HE LIFTS ME HERE FO,

LIVING, FOR MY BOYS.

I THANK HIM EVERY MORNING.

I NEVER WAS THAT MUCH

BELIEVER, BUT SINCE THAT

DAY, I BELIEVE MORE.

Reporter: SCOTT, CBN,

STIROP, ISRAEL.

Pat: WHAT BRAVE

PEOPLE.

WHAT INCREDIBLY BRAVE

PEOPLE.

UNTIL YOU'VE BEEN THERE,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU

DON'T REALIZE HOW TENUOUS

LIFE IS WITH THOSE PEOPLE

WHO LIVE IN WHAT IS CALLED

THE WEST BANK.

POLITICIANS CAN YACK AND RUN

THEIR MOUTHS LIKE THEY KNOW

SOMETHING, AND THEY DON'T.

AND THEY MAKE THESE

PRONOUNCEMENTS THAT ARE

IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP, AND THEY

TALK ABOUT LAND FOR PEACE,

AND IT IS JUST NONSENSE.

BUT THEY GAVE UP LAND, THEY

GAVE UP THE GAZA, AND LOOK

WHAT HAPPENED?

IT WAS IN FIL INFILTRATED

BY TERRORIST GROUPS, AND

THEY'RE USING IT AS A

LAUNCHING PAD, AND THEY'RE

LAUNCHING ROCKETS TOWARDS

JERUSALEM AND TEL AVIV AND

ALL OVER THAT WEST BANK

AREA.

OF COURSE ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT

TO DEFEND ITSELF, BUT IT IS

LIKE A SWAMP.

DO YOU WANT TO GO INTO A

SWAMP, AND TO SEND GROUND

TROOPS IN?

AND ONCE YOU'VE GOTTEN IT,

WHAT HAVE YOU WON?

WELL, YOU'VE WON NOTHING.

THEY DON'T WANT IT.

AND YET THEY'RE FACED WITH

THIS DILEMMA.

YOU JUST NEED TO UNDERSTAND

WHAT IS HAPPENING OVER

THERE.

AND WE JOIN THEM IN PRAYER,

AND WE JOIN THEM IN OUR

SYMPATHY.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP WE'LL

HAVE MORE OF TODAY'S TOP

HEADLINES, AND THEN AN

AMAZING STORY OF A FIGHTER

PILOT WHO CRASHED IN A

CROWDED NEIGHBORHOOD AND

WALKED AWAY UNHURT.

YOU WANT TO MISS THIS ONE,

SO STAY TUNED.

Lee: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WANT TO

KNOW WHO HELPED CREATE THE

OBAMA'S ADMINISTRATION'S

TALKING POINTS ON THE DEADLY

ATTACKS IN BENGHAZI, ON

SEPTEMBER 11TH.

HEARINGS ON CAPITOL HILL

HAVE REVEALED THAT THE

C.I.A. CONCLUDED EARLY ON

THAT TERRORISTS ARE TO BLAME

FOR THE ASSAULT.

LAWMAKERS WANT TO KNOW WHO

TOOK THAT INFORMATION OUT OF

THE WHITE HOUSE'S EARLY

STATEMENTS.

IT COULD EXPLAIN WHY SUSAN

RICE KEPT EXPLAINING IT AS A

PROTEST.

DEMOCRATS SAY THE C.I.A.

SIGNED OFF ON THE FINAL

TALKING POINTS, BUT

REPUBLICANS QUESTION WHETHER

THE WHITE HOUSE WAS TRYING

TO COVER IT UP, FEARING IT

WOULD CAUSE VOTERS TO

QUESTION THE PRESIDENT'S

SLAICLAIM THAT THEY WERE

TRYING TO HURT THE

al-QAEDA POWER.

SHE COULD HAVE KNOWN THAT

THOSE STATEMENTS WERE WASED

DOWN, BUT SHE DIDN'T.

I BLAME THE PRESIDENT

MORE THAN ANYBODY ELSE.

SUSAN RICE IS A BIT PLAYER

HERE.

WAS HE INFORMED OF THE JUNE

ATTACK ON OUR CONSULATE

WHERE THEY BLEW A HOLE WHERE

40 PEOPLE COULD GO THROUGH.

WAS HE AWARE OF THE CABLE

FROM STEVENS WHERE HE SAID

THEY COULDN'T WITHSTAND AN

ATTACK.

I BLAME THE PRESIDENT FOR

MAKING THIS A DEATH TRAP.

Leslie:

Lee: SENATOR WIN DIE

DIANE WEINSTEIN DOESN'T

BELIEVE THEY ALTERED THE

INFORMATION.

Lee: MARK MARTIN HAS AN

UPDATE ON THE WORK TO AVOID

TAX MAGEDDON.

Reporter: THEY FIRST

NEED TO PUT THE BRAKES ON

THE COUNTRY FALLING OFF THE

FISCAL CLIFF AT THE END OF

THIS YEAR.

THAT'S THE

600 BILLION-DOLLAR

COMBINATION OF CROSS-THE

BOARD TAX INCREASES AND

SPENDING CUTS THAT COULD

SEND A FRAGILE ECONOMY BACK

INTO RECESSION.

THE TWO SIDES HAVE

IDENTIFIED THE TAX REVENUE

WE'RE WILLING TO DISCUSS,

AND NOW IT IS TIME TO TALK

ABOUT THE REDUCTIONS.

IF WE PASS SOMETHING THAT

DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM,

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO BE AS IRRITATED IN

THE FUTURE AS THEY ARE NOW.

JUST TO CLOSE LOOPHOLES

IS FAR TOO LITTLE MONEY.

THEY SAID THEY WANT IT TO BE

REVENUE NEUTRAL.

IF IT IS GOING BRING IN

REVENUE, THE PRESIDENT HAS

BEEN VERY CLEAR THAT THE

HIGHER INCOME PEOPLE HAVE TO

PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE.

Reporter: AMERICANS ARE

SKEPTICAL.

BUSINESS OWNERS AND

INVESTORS ARE RAPIDLY

MANEUVERING TO SHIELD

THEMSELVES FROM POSSIBLE

HIGHER TAXES NEXT YEAR.

SO MANY INVESTORS ARE

SHEDDING INVESTMENTS, WHICH

IS CONTRIBUTING TO RECENT

SELLOFFSELLOFFS IN FORMERLY

HIGH FLYING STOCK MARKETS

LIKE APPLE.

IT IS CRUCIAL BOTH SIDES DO

MORE THAN A TEMPORARY FIX.

WHEN IT COMES FROM THE

FISCAL CLIFF, I WAS IN

CONGRESS, AND IF THEY JUST

PUT A BAND-AID ON THIS,

THERE WILL BE ANOTHER CLIFF

IN 'FE A FEW MONTHS.

WE NEED A BALANCED BUDGET.

Reporter: SENATOR TELLY

AHED SUMMED UP THE SITUATION

BY SAYING "POWER HARINGIS

SHARING IS AN OPPORTUNITY,

NOT AN OPTION, AND GETTING

OUR FISCAL HOUSE IN ORDER IS

WHERE WE NEED TO START."

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Lee: THE WEALTHY NEED

TO PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE.

PAT, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

Pat: NOBODY KNOWS.

AND WHATEVER IT IS, IT IS

WHAT BARACK OBAMA WANTS TO

TAKE FROM THEM.

AND IF HE TOOK ALL OF THEIR

INCOME, IT WOULD ONLY RUN

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT 45

DAYS.

THE WHOLE THING IS

NONSENSE.

IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT THE

ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE

ENOUGH MONEY TO BRIDGE THE

GAP ARE THE SO-CALLED MIDDLE

CLASS.

WHEN HE FINISHES HIS TAX, IT

WILL GO ALL THE WAY DOWN THE

LINE.

IT WON'T STOP AT $250,000.

THIS FAIR SHARE IS

NONSENSE.

FORMER SUCCES SECRETARY OF

STATE, JAMES BAKER, HAD A

VERY INTRIGUING SUGGESTION

IN AN OP-ED PIECE IN THE

NEWSPAPER.

THEY SAID, WHY DON'T THEY

MAKE A DEAL WHICH SAYS,

OKAY, WE WILL CUT TAXES, SO

LONG AS YOU MATCH IT WITH

REVENUE CUTS.

AND IF -- IF YOU SPEND MORE

THAN YOU HAVE AGREED,

AUTOMATICALLY, THE TAX CUTS

WILL NOT -- NOT THE TAX

CUTS, BUT THE TAX INCREASES

WILL BE NULLIFIED.

SO IT WOULD BE TIED IN.

BECAUSE IF YOU PASS A TAX

BILL THAT RAISES TAXES, THAT

STAYS IN PLACE.

BUT SPENDING CUTS ARE VERY

VOLATILE AND CAN BE CHANGED

AT THE WHIM OF THE

MAJORITY.

SO WHEN HE SAYS, OKAY, TIE

THE ONE TO THE OTHER.

HE IS A VERY SMART MAN.

HE IS A MA SMART LAYER, AND

THAT' -- SMART LAWYER, BUT

THEY PROBABLY WON'T DO IT.

BUT BUSINESS LEADERS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY SAY WE'RE

PULLING BACK ON OR

INVESTMENT PLANS, ON OUR

CAPITAL SPENDING.

YEAR NOT GOING TO SPEND IN

THE MIDST OF ALL OF THIS

UNCERTAINTY.

AND THAT, OF COURSE, WILL BE

BE A BREAK ON THE ECONOMY.

AND THE WEALTHY PEOPLE ARE

DUMPING ASSETS AS FAST AS

THEY CAN BEFORE THE END OF

THE YEAR AND THEY'RE TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF THE LOWER

CAPTAIN GAINS TAXES.

IT'S NOT A PRETTY PICTURE.

THEY'LL GET TOGETHER AND

MAKE SOME KIND OF A DEAL.

THEY HAVE TO.

LEE?

Lee: MANY ANALYSTS SAY

MITT ROMNEY'S LACK OF

HISPANIC SUPPORT HURT HIM IN

THE ELECTION.

AND THEY BLAME HIS RHETORIC

IN THE ELECTION.

FRED BAILEY HEADS UP A GROUP

CALLED "TEXAS IMMIGRATION

SOLUTION."

HE CAME UP WITH A FREE

MARKET WORKER PLAN.

BAILEY SAYS IF REPUBLICANS

HELP HISPANIC IMMIGRANTS,

THEY CAN BECOME A NATURAL

ALLIE.

YOU MAKE COMMENTS LIKE

SELF-DEPORTATION.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY DON'T

DEPORT, WE'RE GOING TO MAKE

THEM FEEL THE PAIN.

COMMENTS LIKE THAT DON'T DO

ANYTHING FOR REACHING OUT TO

THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY.

I'VE WORKED SHOULDER TO

SHOULDER WITH HISPANICS, AND

I'VE SEEN THEIR FAMILY

VALUES.

Lee: THE SOLUTION

PUSHES FOR SECURE BORDERS

AND PROTECTING AMERICAN

JOBS.

IT ALSO LAYS OUT PLANS FOR A

STREAM-LINED IMMIGRATION

PROCESS, AND PUTS A PRIORITY

ON KEEPING IMMIGRANTS AND

THEIR FAMILIES TOGETHER.

THANKSGIVING ISN'T EVEN HERE

YET, AND THE BATTLES OVER

CHRISTIAN CHRISTMAS DISPLAYS

IS ALREADY HEATING UP.

THE CITY OF SA SANTA MONICA

CALIFORNIA IS DROPPING THEIR

NATIVITY SCENE AFTER 14

YEARS.

BUT ATHEISTS SET UP

NON-RELIGIOUS DISPLAYS,

ANGERING THE COMMUNITY.

BY COMPARING IT TO MYTHS AND

FABLES.

THE CHURCH THAT USED TO SET

UP THE NATIVITY ARE GOING TO

FEDERAL COURT.

THEY CLAIM IT VIOLATED THEIR

RIGHTS BY STOPPING THE

SCENE.

Pat: IT IS CHRISTMAS

ALL OVER AGAIN.

THE GRINCH IS TRYING TO

STEAL OUR HOLIDAY.

IT HAS BEEN SO BEAUTIFUL.

THE NATION COMES TOGETHER.

WE SING CHRISTMAS CAROLS, WE

GIVE GIFTS TO EACH OTHER.

WE HAVE LIGHTED TREES AND IT

IS JUST A BEAUTIFUL THING.

ATHEISTS DON'T LIKE OUR

HAPPINESS.

THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO BE

HAPPY.

THEY'RE MISERABLE, SO THEY

WANT YOU TO BE MISERABLE.

SO THEY WANT TO STEAL YOUR

HOLIDAY AWAY FROM YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP LATER,

A CALL THAT NO AVIATOR'S

WIFE WANTS TO HEAR, HER

HUSBAND CRASHED HIS PLANE.

BUT, FIRST, MEET A HIGH

ROLLER WHO SPENT HIS MONEY

ON STRIPPERS AND THEN TRIED

TO KILL HIMSELF.

I WANTED TO GET IT OVER.

IT WAS TOO MUCH TO BEAR.

Terry: HEAR WHAT

STOPPED HIM FROM PULLING

THAT TRIGGER, NEXT.

Pat: ERNIE SHAMON LIVED

THE LIFE OF A SINGLE MAN WHO

LOVED TO PARTY.

HE WOULD DROP A COUPLE GRAND

AT THE TRIP CLUBS EVERY

NIGHT.

I DON'T KNOW HOW HE DID IT.

AND HE WOULD SLEEP WITH ANY

WOMAN WHO WOULD LET HIM.

THERE WAS JUST ONE PROBLEM,

ERNEST WAS A MARRIED MAN AT

THE TIME.

I WOULD SPEND ABOUT

$3,000 A NIGHT IN THE STRIP

CLUBS.

Reporter: ERNEST SHAMON

BELIEVED HE WAS LIVING THE

HIGH LIFE, GOING TO CLUBS

AND DRINKING AND HAVING

AFFAIRS.

HE HAD PLENTY OF MONEY TO

PARTY, THANKS TO HIS

SUCCESSFUL PACKAGE DELIVERY

SERVICE BUSINESS.

YOU KNOW, I WAS GOOD.

I TOOK CARE OF BUSINESS.

THAT SORT OF THING.

I WAS UP TO THE POINT WHERE

THE CONTRACTS WERE

$3.1 MILLION A YEAR, IS WHAT

I WAS MAKING WITH THEM.

AND PROBABLY GROSSING CLOSE

TO $1 MILLION A YEAR.

Reporter: BUT ERNEST

WAS ABOUT TO PAY A PRICE FOR

THE LIFESTYLE HE HAD

CHOSEN.

HE PROFESSED TO BECOMING A

CHRISTIAN AT 12 YEARS OLD,

BUT WHEN HE WENT AWAY TO

COLLEGE, HE BEGAN TO PARTY.

YOU KNOW, I'M AWAY FROM

HOME.

THERE IS ALL THESE PEOPLE.

THERE IS ALL THESE WOMEN.

THERE IS ALL THIS STUFF

GOING ON.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT.

Reporter: DURING HIS

LAST TWO YEARS AT COLLEGE,

HE PARENTS DIED.

ERNEST DROPPED OUT OF

COLLEGE AND STARTED SELLING

CRACK COCAINE.

THAT WAS REALLY, YOU

KNOW, A VERY BAD TURNING

POINT IN MY LIFE.

BUT THINGS EVEN GOT WORSE.

Reporter: WHILE DRIVING

HOME ONE DAY, POLICE PULLED

ERNEST OVER FOR A TRAFFIC

VIOLATION.

HE FOUND A KILO OF COCAINE

IN THE CAR, WITH THE STREET

VALUE OF $100,000.

HE WAS ARRESTED, BUT GOT OFF

ON A TECHNICALITY.

ERNEST THEN MET LAVON AND

THREE MONTHS LATER THEY

MARRIED.

WITH HIS CHARM AND GOING

OUT FOR DINNER, HE WAS A

REALLY GOOD GENTLEMAN BACK

THEN.

HE WAS A NICE, WELL-MANNERED

PERSON.

Reporter: HE QUIT

DEALING DRUGS AND WENT TO

WORK FOR AN EXPRESS MAIL

COMPANY.

FIVE YEARS LATER, HE STARTED

SHAMON ENTERPRISES.

IT WAS DURING EXTENDED

BUSINESS TRIPS FOR THE

COMPANY THAT HE STARTED

HANGING OUT IN STRIP CLUBS

AND HAVING AFFAIRS.

I WAS A MARRIED MAN AND

ALSO A BUSINESSMAN, BUT IT

DIDN'T STOP ME.

I STILL CONTINUED ON.

HEY, I WAS DOING THE

SERVICE, GIVING THEM MONEY,

AND THEY DOING SOMETHING FOR

ME.

Reporter: HE NEGLECTED

HIS WIFE, LAVON, AND THEIR

SON.

SHE STARTED NOTICING THAT

SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

I MIGHT HAVE BEEN

CHECKING LAUNDRY OR -- YOU

KNOW, AND I COULD SEE THE

LIPSTICK ON THE COLLAR, YOU

KNOW, FROM WOMEN.

Reporter: LAVON ASKED

ERNEST TO LEAVE.

I HAD ALL OF HIS THINGS

PACKED AND I HAD THEM

OUTSIDE.

I TOLD HIM TO PICK THEM UP

AND KEEP ON MOVING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

SEPARATED.

ERNEST HUNG OUT WITH HIS

MANY GIRLFRIENDS.

HE SHOWERED THEM WITH

EXTRAVAGANT GIFTS LIKE CARS

AND JEWELRY.

MEANWHILE, LAVON BEGAN TO

PRAY FERVENTLY FOR HER

HUSBAND.

I GOT DOWN ON MY KNEES

AND I ASKED GOD, IF IT WAS

MEANT FOR US TO BE, FOR HIM

TO CHANGE HIM IF WE GOT BACK

TOGETHER.

Reporter: ERNEST

FINALLY BEGAN SPENDING MORE

MONEY THAN HE COULD BRING

IN, AND EVENTUALLY LOST HIS

BUSINESS.

ERNEST BELIEVED THE ONLY

ANSWER TO HIS PROBLEMS WAS

TO KNIGHT SUICIDE.

I HAD A GUN, AND I WAS

JUST GOING TO SHOOT MYSELF.

AND JUST GET IT OVER WITH

BECAUSE IT IS JUST TOO MUCH

TO BEAR.

Reporter: BEFORE HE

PULLED THE TRIGGER, ERNEST

CRIED OUT TO GOD ONE LAST

TIME TO CHANGE HIM.

I WAS JUST, LIKE, LORD, I

CAN'T DO THIS NO MORE.

I CAN'T DO IT.

I CAN'T DO THIS NO MORE,

LORD.

JUST CHANGE ME, FATHER.

CHANGE ME, GOD.

I MESSED UP EVERYTHING

YOU'VE GIVEN ME.

I MESSED UP THE BUSINESS.

I MESSED UP MY FAMILY.

CHANGE ME.

CHANGE ME, LORD.

Reporter: ERNEST

REMEMBERED SOMETHING SUPER

NATURAL SEEMS TO HAPPEN AT

THAT MOMENT.

I REMEMBER -- IT WAS LIKE

A DEEP FEELING.

AND IT IS LIKE I HAD DIED.

I NEVER FORGET.

THERE WAS AN ANGEL WHO WAS

STANDING ABOVE ME LIKE JESUS

CAME THROUGH.

AND HIS HEART IS CRYING.

AND IT IS JUST LIKE HE TOOK

MY BODY.

LIKE I WAS JUST GONE AND

THEY REPLACED ME WITH

SOMETHING NEW.

I WAS LIKE GOD JUST CHANGED

ME.

IT IS LIKE THE OLD ME DIED

AND HE JUST REPLACED ME.

YOU GO BACK TO THE

SCRIPTURES, HE WILL MAKE YOU

A NEW CREATURE.

HE MADE ME A FEW CREATURE.

Reporter: ERNEST ENDED

HIS AFFAIRS AND WENT BACK TO

CHURCH.

SOON HE AND HIS WIFE, LAVON,

WERE REUNITED.

WHEN I GOT HOME, SHE SAID

I'VE BEEN PRAYING THAT GOD

WILL CHANGE YOU.

SHE WAS PRAYING FOR ME.

AFTER ALL I'VE DONE, SHE IS

STILL PRAYING FOR ME.

AND GOD IS SO GOD, THAT HE

HEARD MY PRAYERS AND HE

HEARD HER CRY.

Reporter: ERNEST WENT

BACK TO WORK FOR A TRUCKING

COMPANY AS A DRIVER.

HE FINISHED HIS BACHELOR'S

DEGREE AT REGENT UNIVERSITY,

AND IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON

HIS DIVINITY DEGREE.

HE HAS TWO BOYS NOW AND HE

IS GRATEFUL FOR A SECOND

CHANCE.

TO BE FORGIVEN FELT SO

GOOD AND SO POWERFUL.

YOU KNOW, YOU JUST FELT SO

MUCH LOVE, LOVE FROM GOD AND

LOVE FROM HER.

IF YOU JUST REPENT, GOD'S

LOVE IS JUST OVERPOWERFUL.

AND HE EVEN PUT THE LOVE IN

HER HEART TO RECEIVE ME

AGAIN.

IT IS JUST LOVE.

I'M HIS PRINCESS NOW, YOU

KNOW.

AND THAT'S THE WAY HE MAKES

ME FEEL NOW.

WE CAN'T CHANGE WHO WE

ARE.

ONLY JESUS CHRIST CAN CHANGE

YOU.

AND IF YOU ASK HIM, HE WILL

CHANGE YOU.

ASK HIM AND TRUST HIM, AND

HE WILL CHANGE YOU.

Pat: THE STORY OF THE

PRODIGAL SON.

THE YOUNGER SON RECEIVED THE

INHERITANCE DUE HIM, AND HE

WENT TO A FAR COUNTRY.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS HE WASTED

HIS SUBSTANCE IN RIOTOUS

LIVING.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY

ANYMORE THAN THAT.

HE WASTED HIS SUBSTANCE IN

RIOTOUS LIVING.

HERE IS A MAN WHO HAS A

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS.

HE'S WORKED HARD.

AND HE HAS BUILT UP A

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS,

BRINGING IN MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN SALES.

SUCCESSFUL.

GOT PLENTY OF MONEY.

GOT EVERYTHING HE NEEDS.

HE'S GOT A LOVING WIFE.

HE'S GOT A FAMILY.

BUT HE WANTED SOMETHING

BETTER, AND THE BIBLE ALSO

SAID THERE IS PLEASURE AND

SIN FOR A SEASON.

DON'T THINK THERE IS NOT ANY

PLEASURE.

THERE IS PLEASURE IN THIS

STUFF.

COCAINE; PLEASURE FOR A

TIME.

TRIP CLUB CLUBS; PLEASURE

FOR A TIME.

DON'T THINK THE DEVIL SELLS

YOU SHORT COMING IN.

IT IS COMING OUT THAT IS SO

HARD.

BECAUSE WHAT HE DOES IS TAKE

PEOPLE AND DESTROY THEM.

HE TOOK ALL OF THE PRODIGAL

SON'S MONEY.

AND HE WOUND UP IN A

PIGSTY.

ERNEST IS THE SAME WAY.

HE LOST ALL HIS MONEY.

AND HE WOUND UP IN A

PIGSTY.

HE WOUND UP DESPERATE.

LISTEN, I KNOW THAT THERE IS

AN ALLURE IN THE GLAMOUR OF

WHAT SATAN HAS TO OFFER, BUT

THE END OF IT IS A PIGSTY.

THE END OF IT IS DESPERATE

IS POVERTY.

AND THE END OF IT IN

ERNEST'S CASE WAS POTENTIAL

SUICIDE.

BECAUSE YOU CAN'T STAND WHAT

YOU'VE DONE TO YOURSELF.

AND YOU CAN'T STAND HOW

YOU'VE WASTED YOUR MONEY AND

YOUR LIFE.

AND IF YOU FIT ANY OF THOSE

DESCRIPTIONS, LET ME TELL

YOU, GOD -- GOD LOVES YOU.

ERNEST -- IT'S AMAZING.

HE CAME TO THE LORD, AND THE

LORD TOOK AWAY THE OLD

ERNEST AND GAVE HIM A NEW

HEART.

IF ANY MAN IS IN CHRIST, HE

IS A NEW CREATION.

GOD WILL REMAKE YOU, AND

HE'LL GIVE YOU JOY AND PEACE

AND HAPPINESS.

AND HE GIVES NO SORROW WITH

IT.

HE DOESN'T GIVE ANY SORROW

WITH IT.

THEN YOU CAN REBUILD YOUR

LIFE ON A SURE FOUNDATION.

DO YOU WANT THAT?

IF YOU DO, LET'S ASK GOD TO

GIVE IT TO YOU.

LEAVE THE OLD BEHIND.

IT IS STRICTLY AN ILLUSION,

AND THE ILLUSION WILL LEAVE

YOU WITH SOMETHING BUT ASHES

AND EMPTINESS AND A DESIRE

TO KILL YOURSELF.

PRAY WITH ME NOW.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, BOW

YOUR HEAD AND PRAY.

JESUS, YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE

DONE.

YOU KNOW HOW I HAVE WASTED

MY LIFE.

ON THAT WHICH SEEMS SO

ALLURING.

LORD, I ASK YOU TO HELP ME

COME OUT OF THAT PIT.

I ASK YOU TO HELP ME CHANGE

MY WAY.

I ASK YOU TO HELP ME TURN MY

LIFE AROUND.

LORD, HEAR ME NOW.

COME INTO MY LIFE.

LIVE IN ME AND TRANSFORM ME

FROM THIS MOMENT ON.

I GIVE IT ALL TO YOU.

I THANK YOU THAT YOU HEARD

MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO HELP YOU DO WHAT'S

NEXT.

I HAVE SOMETHING CALLED "A

NEW DAY."

IT IS A C.D.

73 MINUTES.

IT WILL TELL YOU IN RATHER

GREAT DETAIL WHAT IT IS

YOU'VE DONE AND WHAT'S

NEXT.

SO CALL RIGHT NOW AND SAY,

LOOK, I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

YOU NEED TO CONFESS WHAT YOU

HAVE JUST DONE.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

BUT CALL ANYHOW.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND SAY I

JUST PRAYED.

I JUST GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

EVERYBODY ON THESE PHONES

HAVE MADE THE SAME DECISION

YOU HAVE MADE.

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO LOVE

GOD AND WHO LOVE YOU.

CALL NOW AND SAY, I JUST

PRAYED AND I'M A NEW

CREATURE IN CHRIST.

TERRY, WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, MARK HARDING HAS

SPENT MORE THAN 30 YEARS AS

A FIGHTER PILOT, BUT HE

NEVER CRASHED UNTIL AFTER HE

LEFT THE MILITARY.

YOU KNOW, YOU HEAR A LOT

OF PEOPLE THAT SAY GOD'S MY

CO-PILOT.

THAT'S ABSOLUTELY WRONG.

GOD IS MY PILOT.

HE GIVES ME THE SKILLS TO

FLY.

HE WAS ALWAYS PRESENT IN MY

COCKPIT.

Terry: HEAR HOW MARK'S

PILOT SAVED HIS LIFE, WHEN

WE COME BACK.

Lee: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TOOK TO

THE STREETS IN FRANCE TO

PROTEST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

OVER THE WEEKEND.

THEY'RE UNHAPPY WITH THE NEW

GOVERNMENT BILL THAT WOULD

GIVE MARRIAGE AN ADOPTION

RIGHTS TO GAY COUPLES.

THE RALLIES TOOK PLACE IN

MAJOR CITIES ACROSS FRANCE.

THEY WERE ORGANIZED BY

CONSERVATIVE CATHOLIC

GROUPS.

THEY SAY THEIR GOAL IS TO

PERSUADE FRENCH LAWMAKERS TO

CHANGE THEIR MIND ABOUT THE

PROPOSED LAW.

*

Terry: WELL, OUR NEXT

STORY IS ABOUT FLYING.

YOU HAVE FLOWN, RIGHT?

Pat: I HAVE A PRIVATE

PILOT'S LICENSE.

Terry: DO YOU STILL

FLY?

Pat: NO.

I'VE GOT BETTER SENSE.

BUT IT'S --

Terry: HAVE YOU EVER

HAD A CLOSE CALL?

Pat: ARE YOU KIDDING.

I ALMOST NICKED INTO AN

OUTDOOR THEATER, A SCREEN.

I CAME OUT OF A SHORT FIELD

AND I SHOULDN'T NEVER HAVE

BEEN IN TO BEGIN WITH.

AND I WAS PULLING BACK -- I

BARELY CLEARED THE THING.

A BIG SCREEN IN AN OUTDOOR

THEATER.

THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER

THINGS THAT I DID.

Terry: WELL, I LOOK

FORWARD TO FLYING

COMMERCIALLY WITH YOU.

Pat: DON'T EVER FLY IF

I'M AT THE CONTROLS, UNLESS

YOU'RE DESPERATE.

IF YOU'RE IN THE AMAZON AND

ALLIGATORS AND SNAKES ARE

EATING YOU AND YOU HAVE TO

GET OUT.

Terry: I MIGHT TAKE MY

CHANCES WITH THE ALLIGATORS

AND SNAKES.

IT HAS BEEN SAID BY MANY A

PILOT THAT FLYING IS THE

SECOND GREATEST THRILL ON

EARTH.

LANDING IS THE FIRST.

MARK HARDING KNOWS FROM

EXPERIENCE BECAUSE WHEN HIS

PLANE STARTED LOSING

ALTITUDE OVER HOT SPRINGS,

ARKANSAS LAST YEAR, ANY

LANDING WOULD DO.

33 YEARS OF FLYING

SINGLE-ENGINE FIGHTERS ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

NEVER HAVING TO SHOOT

ANYBODY, AND I'M ALIVE AND

DOING WELL.

I NEVER HAD TO EJECT OUT OF

AN AIRPLANE.

I HAD PARTS AND PIECES FALL

OFF THE PLANE, BUT THEY

TRAIN US WELL.

TO BE ABLE TO LAND A PLANE

WITHOUT A RUNWAY, YOU'RE

READY.

Reporter: MARK HARDING

AND HIS WIFE ATTRIBUTE HIS

YEARS OF SAFETY WHILE FLYING

FIGHTER JETS IN THE AIR

FORCE TO TWO THINGS, HIS

MILITARY TRAINING AND GOD'S

HAND OF PROTECTION.

I HAVE TO SAY I WAS NEVER

AFRAID.

I WAS IN CONSTANT

COMMUNICATION WITH GOD WHEN

HE WAS UP IN THE AIR.

SAYING, ALL RIGHT, YOU'RE

WITH HIM NOW.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

THAT.

YOU HEAR A LOT OF PEOPLE

WHO SAY, GOD IS MY

CO-PILOT.

THAT'S ABSOLUTELY WRONG.

GOD IS MY PILOT.

HE GIVES ME THE SKILLS TO

FLY.

HE WAS ALWAYS PRESENT IN MY

COCKPIT.

Reporter: MARK RETIRED

FROM THE AIR FORCE IN 2011,

BUT HE HAD A HARD TIME

STAYING OUT OF THE COCKPIT.

HE TRAINED TO BECOME AN

AERIAL FIREFIGHTER, FLYING A

MODIFIED CROP DUSTER.

I IT WAS VERY EXCITING.

I WAS VERY HAPPY FOR HIM.

VERY PROUD.

I THINK IT WAS THE SECOND

LIVE DROP THAT I DID, WHERE

I MISDROPPED WHERE THE AIR

ATTACK WANTED ME TO DROP.

I WAS A LITTLE LATE.

AND I FOUND OUT IT WASN'T A

LATE DROP AT ALL.

IT WAS BASICALLY GOD'S DROP,

WHERE THERE WAS A FIREMAN IN

A BULLDOZER WHO WAS TRAPPED

AND LOST HIS RADIOS, AND

BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE SMOKE

OF THE FIRE, HE COULDN'T

COMMUTE KATCOMMUNICATE WITH

ANYBODY.

AND THE WATER HIT HIM ON THE

HEAD.

AND HE SAW IT THEN AND

BACKED OUT.

I THOUGHT, I'M DOING WHAT

GOD NEEDS ME TO DO.

Reporter: IN SEPTEMBER

2011, HIS GROUP WAS CALLED

TO FIGHT FIRES IN ARKANSAS.

AFTER SEVERAL DAYS OF LONG,

SUCCESSFUL DROPS, MARK TOOK

OFF AGAIN.

BUT THIS TIME SOMETHING WENT

TERRIBLY WRONG.

I'M CLIMBING OUT, THE

TREES ARE DISAPPEARING, AND

I'M LOOKING FOR TRAFFIC, AND

I'M GOING TO STOP MY TURN

HERE IN A LITTLE BIT, AND

THAT'S WHEN THE WORLD

CHANGED.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE AIRPLANE

DROPS AND I LOST ABOUT

75 FEET OF ALTITUDE.

INSTEAD OF HAVING A CLEAR

COCKPIT NOW, IT IS FULL OF

TREES.

Reporter: MARK DUMPED

THE WATER IN HOPES OF

LIGHTER PLANE WO WOULD

RESPOND AND RISE UP.

IT DIDN'T.

I KNOW I'M OVER A TOWN.

THERE IS NO WAY THIS

AIRPLANE IS GOING TO

OUTCLIMB THIS.

Reporter: MARK LOOKED

FOR A PLACE TO CRASH A

PLANE.

HE SAW A SMALL, BACKYARD,

BUT KNEW IT WOULD TAKE A

MIRACLE TO AVOID HITTING

HOUSES AND HURTING PEOPLE ON

THE GROUND.

I KNEW I WAS GOING TO

HAVE TO CRASH.

AND I KNEW I WOULD HAVE TO

PUT MY NOSE IN AND NOT TAKE

ANOTHER HOUSE OUT.

I'M DOING 80 MILES PER HOUR,

AND IT IS NOT LIKE YOU CAN

JUST STOP IT.

Reporter: MARK'S TAIL

SECTION GLANCED OFF A POWER

LINE, HELPING HIM TOWARDS

HIS TARGET.

THEN HE CRASHED HARD,

DESTROYING THE PLANE.

I HIT THE SIDE OF THE

AIRPLANE WHERE THE ROLL BARS

WERE, AND NOW I'M BLACKED

OUT.

I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING BECAUSE

I'M TAKING PART OF THE

BACKYARD OUT.

I'VE GONE THROUGH A WOOD

FENCE.

I'M SLIDING.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE,

WHATEVER.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT JUST

STOPPED.

Reporter: HE THREW OPEN

THE DOOR AND GOT OUT OF THE

PLANE UNHURT.

THE WATER AND FOAM PREVENTED

ANY FIRE FROM STARTING.

RESCUERS ARRIVED AND

TRANSPORTED HIM TO THE

HOSPITAL.

MEANWHILE, COLLEEN GOT A

CALL THAT MARK HAD CRASHED.

WHEN I HEARD THE WORDS,

THERE HAS BEEN A CRASH, MARK

HAS CRASHED, I'D BE LYING

THAT I SAID THAT I DIDN'T

THINK, WELL, HE'S DEAD.

BUT I FELT LIKE SUCH A PEACE

WASHING OVER ME.

IN A MOMENT, YOUR LIFE

CHANGES.

BUT IN THAT INSTANT, GOD HAS

HOLD OF YOU.

HE HAD HOLD OF ME.

I KNOW THE ANGELS WERE

AROUND ME, AND THEY DID A

FANTASTIC JOB TO GET ME TO

THAT LAST PLACE.

WHEN I WENT BACK A COUPLE OF

DAYS LATER, ABOUT THREE DAYS

LATER, I LOOKED AT THE SITE,

I WAS STANDING IN THE STREET

AND I'M JUST CRYING.

AND I'M GOING, HOW DID YOU

GET THAT AIRPLANE, WITH

ANOTHER TREE OFF TO THE SIDE

IN THAT BACKYARD?

GOD IS GOING TO GET THE

GLORY ON THIS ONE, HE REALLY

IS.

BECAUSE I DID MY PART, BUT I

COULDN'T PUT THAT AIRPLANE

BACK IN THAT HOLE.

I COULDN'T.

WHEN I SAT THERE AND I

LOOKED AT THAT SPOT, I GO,

MARK, YOU'RE NOT THAT GOOD.

I'M GOOD, BUT I'M NOT THAT

GOOD.

GOD WAS TOTALLY INVOLVED IN

WHAT WAS GOING ON.

HE WAS THE PILOT IN THAT

AIRPLANE, TO PUT IT WHERE HE

WANTED ME TO PUT IT.

MY JOB WAS JUST TO DO

EVERYTHING PIE LEARNE I

LEARNED IN THE MILITARY, BUT

GOD IS THE PILOT.

Reporter: MARK AND

COLLEEN SAY THEY ARE

GRATEFUL FOR GOD'S FAITHFUL

LOVE AND PROTECTION THROUGH

IT ALL.

WE ARE FOREVER IN AWE OF

HOW HE HAS WORKED IN OUR

LIVES.

AND EXCITED ABOUT WHAT HE

HAS IN THE FUTURE.

BECAUSE IF YOU CAN SURVIVE A

PLANE CRASH LIKE MARK DID,

THEN GOD'S GOT SOMETHING

EVEN GREATER FOR US.

AND WE'RE JUST HANGING ON.

TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO

LIVE ON THIS EARTH, TO

IMPACT LIVES FOR GOD, IT'S A

BLESSING.

BUT TO KNOW THAT HE IS THAT

MERCIFUL AND THAT GRACIOUS

AND THAT LOVING, THAT HE

WOULD SACRIFICE HIS SON FOR

SOMEBODY LIKE ME, IT BLOWS

ME AWAY.

SO WHILE I'M ON THIS EARTH,

WHAT CAN I DO FOR GOD?

LIFE IS TOO BEAUTIFUL AND

TOO SHORT NOT TO DO THAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT LIFE WOULD

BE LIKE WITHOUT GOD.

I AM SO BLESSED THAT HE IS

THE FOCAL POINT OF MY LIFE.

Terry: YOU KNOW, MARK

WAS A BELIEVER BEFORE AND

APPRECIATED GOD AND LOVED

GOD, BUT, BOY, WHEN YOU SEE

GOD'S HAND MOVE LIKE THAT IN

YOUR LIFE, IT TAKES YOU TO

ANOTHER LEVEL.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT 1,000

FEET AND YOU'VE GOT TO STOP

SHORT, AND HE HOOKS INTO A

POWER LINE, WHICH THROWS HIM

STRAIGHT DOWN -- I MEAN, IT

IS UNBELIEVABLE.

Terry: AND YOU HAVE

SECONDS TO THINK IN THAT

SCENARIO.

YOU REALLY CAN'T THINK

APPROPRIATELY.

Pat: YOU HAVE NO IDEA

HOW POORLY IT IS TO RECKON

ALL OF THOSE THINGS YOU'VE

GOT TO DO IN AN AIRPLANE.

AND HE'S A REAL PRO, FLYING

FIGHTER PLANES.

OH, MAN, WHAT A STORY.

WELL, GOD'S GOOD ALL THE

TIME.

GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.

UP NEXT, A FAMILY WHO WAS

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY TAKES

A BIG STEP AND BRINGS A

2-YEAR-OLD ORPHAN INTO THEIR

HOME.

HEAR HOW THEY MANAGED.

Pat: IN THE

PHILIPPINES, MANY CHILDREN

UNDER FIVE DON'T GET ENOUGH

FOOD.

THAT THE WHY WE STARTED

FEEDING PROGRAMS FOR

MALNOURISHED CHILDREN, LIKE

THIS 2-YEAR-OLD NAMED

JOSEPH.

Reporter: MENSHI AND

HER HUSBAND WERE ALREADY

RAISING THEIR OWN CHILDREN

WHEN THEY DECIDED TO TAKE IN

THEIR NEPHEW, JOSEPH, WHO

HAD BECOME AN ORPHAN.

HE WAS TWO WHEN HE CAME TO

LIVE THERE AND HE WAS THIN

AND NAL NOURISHED.

I KNEW WE HAD TO TAKE HIM

IN, NO MATTER WHAT.

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WOULD

MANAGE FINANCIALLY, BUT WE

WANTED TO GIVE HIM A HOME.

Reporter: RIGHT AT THAT

TIME, CBN STARTED A PROGRAM

IN THE COMMUNITY TO HELP

KIDS LIKE JOSEPH.

EACH MONTH WE GAVE THE

FAMILY EXTRA FOOD TO HELP

HIM GAIN WEIGHT.

AND WE PROVIDED FREE

VITAMINS AND MEDICAL

CHECKUP.

AND TO HELP MENSHI RELIEVE

SOME OF THAT FINANCIAL

STRESS AT HOME, WE GAVE HER

A GRANT TO START A SMALL

BUSINESS.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE A

SMALL GROCERY STORE.

AND NOW WE SELL FOOD, SCHOOL

SUPPLIES, AND EVEN

UMBRELLAS.

Reporter: TODAY JOSEPH

IS A HEALTHY, ACTIVE

5-YEAR-OLD, WHO LIKES

PLAYING WITH FRIENDS AND

GOING TO SCHOOL.

AND HE NO LONGER CALLS

MENSHI AUNTIE.

HE CALLS HER MAMA.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR ALL

YOU HAVE DONE FOR JOSEPH AND

OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY.

Pat: ISN'T IT

WONDERFUL?

ONE LIFE AT A TIME.

JESUS, WHO SAYS IN AS MUCH

AS YOU HAVE DONE, I WAS

HUNGRY AND YOU FED ME, I WAS

NAKED AND YOU CLOTHED ME, I

WAS SICK AND YOU VISITED ME,

I WAS IN PRISON AND YOU CAME

TO ME, YOU DID IT TO THE

LEAST OF THESE, SO WE REACH

OUT TO LITTLE JOSEPH IN THE

PHILIPPINES IN THE NAME OF

THE LORD, GIVE HIM FOOD,

BUILD HIM UP FROM BEING A

MALNOURISHED WAIF, TO A

HEALTHY YOUNG BOY.

WE'VE HAD SOME GOOD RESPONSE

FROM THIS, "GOD'S PLAN FOR

AMERICA," AND ONE LADY SAID

SHE BEGAN TO SOB WHEN THEY

FOUND OUT WHAT AMERICA WAS

ALL ABOUT.

AND WE'LL GIVE THESE TO YOU

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS A D.V.D., WHICH IS OUR

GIFT TO YOU.

$20 A MONTH, AND YOU CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN

SOMEBODY'S LIFE.

SO CALL US RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

HERE'S TERRY.

Terry: UP NEXT, YOUR

DAILY DOSE OF "BRING IT

ON."

JACK SAYS, "I AM BULLIED AT

SCHOOL, AND I WANT TO KNOW

HOW DO YOU LOVE SOMEONE THAT

HATES YOU?"

YOUR QUESTIONS FROM OUR INK

IN-BOX ARE NEXT SO DON'T GO

AWAY.

Terry: WE HAVE SOME

TIME LEFT, AND WE'D LIKE TO

ANSWER IF OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

J.CJACK SAYS, "HOW DO YOU

LOVE SOMEONE WHO HATES YOU.

THERE ARE A GROUP OF KIDS AT

MY COLLEGE WHO BULLY ME."

YOU WOULD THINK KIDS WOULD

BE BEYOND THAT AT THAT AGE.

"I WANT TO RESPOND AND BRING

THEM TO THE LORD, BUT IT IS

HARD WHEN THEY'RE MEAN TO

ME."

Pat: LOOK WHAT JESUS

DID ON THE CROSS.

THEY WERE MEAN TO HIM, TOO.

THEY ABANDONED HIM, THEY

BEAT HIM, THEY CURSED HIM,

THEY PULLED THE HAIR OFF HIS

FACE.

AND HE SAID, "FATHER,

FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW

NOT WHAT THEY'RE DOING."

LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH

HAPPINESS.

I KNOW THAT SOUNDS HARD.

DON'T BE A VICTIM.

DON'T BE A CRYING VICTIM.

YOU ARE PRAISING THE LORD.

WHEN THEY SEE YOU, YOU'RE

HAPPY.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, YOU'RE

HAPPY.

YOU'RE PRAISING GOD.

I'M HAPPY!

AND YOU GO THROUGH LIFE THAT

WAY.

AND I WOULDN'T SO MUCH WORRY

ABOUT THESE SO-CALLED

BULLIES.

HEY, YOU'RE IN COLLEGE, WHAT

IS THIS BULLYING STUFF?

THERE HAS GOT TO BE SOMEBODY

IN COLLEGE YOU CAN PAL

AROUND WITH, SOMEBODY WHO IS

OF LIKE MIND.

Terry: THAT'S A SAD

SCENARIO IN COLLEGE.

Pat: IF YOU CAN'T FIND

A CHRISTIAN GROUP, THERE

MUST BE A BIBLE STUDY IN

SCHOOL, PEOPLE YOU CAN GET

TOGETHER WITH.

Terry: LOTS OF

CHRISTIAN GROUPS AT COLLEGE

CAMPUSES.

Pat: ANYWHERE.

BUT DON'T PLAY THE VICTIM.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

THAT VICTIMIZATION, THEY

JUST GIVE OFF AN AURA THAT

SAYS KICK ME.

AND IF YOU HAVE THAT

HANG-DOG EXPRESSION, THEN

THEY'RE GOING TO SAY THERE

IS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT

SAYS HURT ME, KICK ME.

BUT IF YOU'RE ALWAYS

POSITIVE AND YOU'RE ALSO

PRAISING GOD, I AM WINNING.

AND WHEN YOU GO TO CLASS,

MAKE SURE YOU'RE WINNING.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: THIS IS MARILYN

WHO SAYS, "I BELIEVE ALL I

CAN ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF

FORGIVENESS.

HOW DOES ONE KNOW THEY HAVE

FORGIVEN EACH AND EVERYTHING

THING.

I'M NOW 81 YEARS OLD.

I TRY TO KEEP BITTERNESS

FROM ENTERING MY SPIRIT.

THIS HAS TROUBLED ME FOR

SOME SOMETIME."

Pat: IT WILL COME BACK

TO ALL OF US, THINGS THAT

WERE DONE.

JUST ISSUE A PRAYER.

IF SOMEBODY HURT YOU 40

YEARS AGO, YOU SAY, GOD, I

PRAY YOUR BLESSING ON THEM.

Terry: AND THEN IT'S

DONE.

Pat: DON'T LINGER OR

SAVOR IT.

Terry: THIS IS JUDITH

WHO SAYS, "IF I'M ANGRY AND

BITTER WHEN I PRAY, DOES GOD

STILL HEAR MY PRAYERS.

THERE ARE TIMES I SO MAD AT

SOMEONE AND I CAN'T CALM

DOWN WHEN I'M PRAYING.

BUT I DON'T WANT MY ANGER TO

HINDER MY RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD."

Pat: OF COURSE YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WILL

BE HINDERED IF YOU HAVE

ANGER IN HIS HEART.

IF YOU HAVE NOT FORGIVEN

YOUR BROTHER, HE IS NOT

GOING TO FORGIVE YOU -- OF

COURSE HE FORGIVES YOU, BUT

YOU HAVE BROKEN THE COVENANT

WITH HIM THAT GIVES YOU AC

SAYS TACCESS TO POWER.

WHY ARE YOU MAD?

YOU'RE MAD BECAUSE SOMEBODY

TOUCHED SOMETHING IN YOU.

AND WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO

DO IS SAY THIS PART OF ME

NEEDS TO DIE.

I'M CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST,

NEVERTHELESS, I'M ALIVE.

YOU SAY, GOD, I SURRENDER TO

YOU.

YOU'RE SO MAD YOU CAN'T

STAND IT, THAT'S YOU.

THAT'S THE YOU THAT IS

COMING UP.

THAT'S THE SELF IN YOU THAT

WANTS TO BE JUSTIFIED.

GO ON.

Terry: TONY SAYS, IS

THE SABBATH REALLY ON

SATURDAY?

IF SO, WHY DO WE GO TO

CHURCH ON SUNDAY.

ARE WE ALL DES DESTINED TO

GO TO HELL.

Pat: IF YOU DON'T GO ON

SATURDAY, YOU'RE DESTINED TO

HELL -- I'M JUST KIDDING.

NO.

THE REASON WE CELEBRATE

SUNDAY BECAUSE THAT'S THE

DAY OF THE RESURRECTION.

AND JESUS -- THE SABBATH FOR

THE JEWS WAS ON SATURDAY,

BUT FOR CHRISTIANS, WE

CELEBRATE SUNDAY BECAUSE ON

THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK,

THE DISCIPLES CAME TO THE

TOMB AND THE TOMB WAS

EMPTY.

THAT'S THE DAY OF THE

RESURRECTION.

Terry: AND WHEN THE

BIBLE TALKS ABOUT

CELEBRATING THE SABBATH,

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT

HONORING THE DAY OF THE

LORD.

IT'S NOT ABOUT WHICH DAY IT

IS.

IT IS THAT YOU DO IT.

Pat: ONE DAY OUT OF

SEVEN YOU HAVE A DAY OF

REST.

Terry: WILLIAM SAYS, "I

RECENTLY RECEIVED A LETTER

FROM CBN.

IN IT THE BIBLE TELLS US WE

WERE ONCE GOD'S ENEMIES.

WHERE IN THE BIBLE IS

THAT?"

Pat: I WANT TO

CONGRATULATE MY STAFF THAT

GOT ME THE ANSWER.

COLOSSIANS 1: 21 "ONCE YOU

WERE ENEMIES WITH GOD

BECAUSE OF THE BEHAVIOUR IN

YOUR MIND."

WEIGWE WERE WITHOUT GOD AND

WITHOUT HOPE IN THE WORLD.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW

TO HAVE A SAFE HOLIDAY

WITHOUT BURNING DOWN YOUR

HOUSE.

GO SOME PLACE ELSE AND LET

THEM BURN THEIR HOUSE DOWN.

"THE LORD IS GOD TO THOSE

WHO'S HOPE IS IN HIM, THE

ONE WHO SEEKS HIM."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
