OUR SOCIETY IS JUST

SATURATED WITH IT.

Lee: THE DIRTY LITTLE

SECRET THAT IS NOW OUT IN

THE OPEN.

IT'S EVERY-DAY LIFE.

Lee: AND NORMAN WING

SHOWKING SHOWS YOU HOW TO

MAKE CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR

EVERYONE ON YOUR NAUGHTY AND

NICE LIST ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB," LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

ONCE AGAIN, THE EYES OF THE

WORLD ARE ON JERUSALEM.

THE LEADER OF THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY SAYS

THE HOLY CITY

WILL, QUOTE,"BE THE ETERNAL

CAPITAL OF A PALESTINIAN

STATE."

Terry: BUT ISRAEL WON'T

GIVE UP IT'S CLAIM ON

JERUSALEM, AND IT SAYS IT

WILL BUILD NEW SETTLEMENTS

THERE.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY

FROM ISRAEL.

Reporter: ISRAEL SAID

IT WOULD BUILD MORE THAN

3,000 NEW APARTMENTS IN

AREAS KNOWN BIBLICALLY AS

JUDEA AND SOMARIA.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU MADE THE

ANNOUNCEMENT TO PROTEST THE

U.N. VOTE THAT GRANTED

NON-MEMBER OBSERVER STATE

STATUS TO THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY ON THESE VERY

LANDS.

ISRAEL SAYS THE VOTE

ABROGATED AGREEMENTS THAT

P.A. AND ISRAEL MADE YEARS

AGO.

AND NETANYAHU SAID THE P.A.

WAS WAGING A STRUGGLE

AGAINST THE VERY EXISTENCE

OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

THE BRITISH AND FRENCH

GOVERNMENT, HOWEVER,

OBJECTED TO ISRAEL'S

DECISION TO BUILD.

WE DON'T TELL THE BRITISH

OR FRENCH TO BUILD OR NOT IN

LONDON.

Reporter: ANOTHER PART

OF THE CONTROVERSY CONCERNS

PLANS TO EXPAND THIS JEWISH

COMMUNITY BEHIND ME.

IT IS LOCATED JUST OUTSIDE

JERUSALEM.

PALESTINIAN LEADERS AND SOME

MEDIA REPORTS SAY THE

EXPANSION WOULD CUT THE WEST

BANK IN TWO.

IN FACT, THE WEST BANK WOULD

STILL BE ABOUT 10 MILES

WIDE.

IT WOULD CONNECT THIS JEWISH

SUBURB TO JERUSALEM.

THE U.N. GENERAL SECRETARY

CALLED IT ISRAEL-OCCUPIED

TERRITORY.

AND SAYS THAT ISRAEL THAT

THE NATURAL RIGHT AND

TERRITORIAL CLAIMS ON IT.

MEANWHILE, PALESTINIAN

PRESIDENT MAHMOUD ABBAS

ADDRESSED A CROWD IN

RAMALLAH AFTER RETURNING

FROM THE U.N.

VOTE.

HE DECLARED PALESTINE A

STATE, AND DECLARED WAY TO

RECONCILE NOT WITH ISRAEL,

BUT HAMAS AND THE GAZA

STRIP.

AND HE PROMISED ONE DAY A

YOUNG PALESTINIAN WOULD

RAISE THE PALESTINIAN FLAG

OVER JERUSALEM.

AFTER THE U.N. VOTE AND

ISRAEL'S RESPONSE, IT

APPEARS ONCE AGAIN THAT THE

BATTLE OVER THE FUTURE AND

FATE OF JERUSALEM IS TAKING

CENTER STAGE IN THE WORLD

RUSSIAN.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

MADALA, JERUSALEM.

Pat: THE JEWISH PEOPLE

WILL MAKE ALL KINDS OF

TERRITORIAL CONCESSIONS.

THEY WANT PEACE VERY BADLY.

THEY DON'T WANT TO BE IN A

STATE OF WAR.

BUT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO

GIVE UP THEIR CAPITAL.

THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE

UP JERUSALEM.

JERUSALEM WAS WON BY KING

DAVID ABOUT THE YEAR 1,000

B.C., THAT'S 3,000 YEARS

AGO, AND THAT'S A LONG

TIME.

AND THAT'S THE JEWISH CLAIM

TO IT, AND IT IS ESTABLISHED

IN THE BIBLE.

IT IS ESTABLISHED IN

HISTORY.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

SO-CALLED STATE OF

PALESTINIAN.

IT DOES NOT EXIST, EXCEPT IN

THE MIND OF THOSE WHO ARE

TALKING ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW.

AND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

THE BIBLE SAYS -- YOU READ

THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET SAC

ZACHARIAH, AND IT SAYS ALL

NATIONS WILL GATHER AGAINST

JERUSALEM.

THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD

WILL COME AGAINST ISRAEL,

AND ISRAEL WILL BE FIGHTING

FOR ITS SURVIVAL, AND THEY

WILL CALL UPON THE NAME OF

THE LORD, AND THE LORD

HIMSELF WILL ANSWER AND GIVE

THEM STRENGTH AND VICTORY.

IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT

IT WILL BE A BLOODY MESS

COMING UP.

SO MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT

IT.

FOR THE PALESTINIANS TO MAKE

THIS OUTRAGEOUS CLAIM, TO

COME OUT AND SAY THIS IS

GOING TO BE OUR ETERNAL

CAPITAL, AND THEY KNOW GOOD

AND WELL THE HEADQUARTERS OF

THE ISRAEL STATE IS LOCATED

IN JERUSALEM.

AND FOR THE PALESTINIAN

LEADER TO SAY, WELL, NO,

THAT'S GOING TO BE OURS, IT

JUST SHOWS A DEGREE OF

HUBEROUS THAT IS APPALLING.

BUT WE'VE SEEN THAT AROUND

HERE, AT HOME, AS A MATTER

OF FACT.

WE HAVE HAD AN EQUAL

SHOWDOWN AND ACTUALLY

OUTRAGEOUS CLAIMS BEING MADE

BY ONE SIDE.

AND LET'S LET LEE WEBB TELL

US MORE ABOUT IT.

Lee: WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT IT'S FISCAL CLIFF

BUDGET NEGOTIATIONS, PAT.

SO FAR NEITHER SIDE SAYS

THEY WERE AGREE WITH WHAT

THE OTHER SIDE OFFERS.

DEMOCRATS WANT TO RAISE

TAXES ON HIGH-INCOME PEOPLE,

AND WANT SOME CUTS IN

SPENDING, BUT THE

REPUBLICANS SAY THOSE

SPENDING CUTS ARE NOT

SERIOUS.

I THINK WE'RE GOING OFF

THE CLIFF.

Reporter: THERE IS NOW

WORRY IN WASHINGTON THAT THE

FISCAL CLIFF NEGOTIATIONS

COULD FAIL.

AND TAKE THE COUNTRY OVER

THE FLIF.

CLIFF.

WHAT THAT WOULD MEAN, A

$2200 TO $2400 TAX INCREASE

FOR THE AVERAGE FAMILY, AND

A 2% PAYROLL TAX CUT THAT

WOULD DISAPPEAR.

AND IT WOULD MEAN

$250 BILLION IN PENTAGON

CUTS, AND ANOTHER

$250 BILLION IN EDUCATION,

TRANSPORTATION, AND FOOD

SAFETY RESEARCH.

A MAJOR STICKINGPOINT, THE

PRESIDENT'S INSIST THAT TAX

CUTS FOR THE WEALTHIEST

EXPIRE.

THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN

GOVERN THE COUNTRY WITH

THOSE LOW RATES FOR FUTURE

GENERATIONS.

Reporter: ANOTHER POINT

OF CONTENTION, THE PRESIDENT

WANTS $1.6 TRILLION IN NEW

TAX REVENUE OVER THE NEXT 10

YEARS.

SPEAKER BOEHNER WANTS HALF

OF THAT.

THE SPEAKER SHOT DOWN THE

PRESIDENT'S PLAN.

A NON-SERIOUS PROPOSAL.

THE PRESIDENT IS ASKING FOR

$1.6 TRILLION WORTH OF NEW

REVENUE OVER 10 YEARS.

TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAS BEEN

ASKING FOR IN PUBLIC.

HE HAS STIMULUS SPENDING IN

HERE THAT EXCEEDED THE

AMOUNT OF NEW CUTS HE WAS

WILLING TO CONSIDER.

IT WAS NOT A SERIOUS OFFER.

Reporter: ECONOMISTS

SAY IF WASHINGTON CANNOT

REACH A DEAL ON THIS ONE,

THE ECONOMY WILL FALL BACK

INTO RECESSION, AND THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE WILL GO

UP.

Lee: PAT, IT SEEMS LIKE

THE REPUBLICANS NEED TO

HAMMER HOME IS THIS ONE

QUESTION: IS GOVERNMENT TOO

BIG?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY, LEE.

I WOULD -- YOU REALLY NEED A

SKILLED TELEVISION

PRODUCTION EXPERT TO SET UP

A SERIES OF SPOT

ADVERTISING, SHOWING YOUNG

PEOPLE.

YOU CAN IMAGINE A YOUNG

PERSON WHO HAS A BILL AND HE

COMES TO HIS FATHER AND HE

SAYS, DAD, I JUST GOT A BILL

FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

AND IT IS FOR $130,000 IN

TAXES.

THIS IS FOR ME.

AND IT SAYS IT'S TO PAY FOR

THE HEALTH OF CHINESE

PROSTITUTES.

AND WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY

FOR THAT?

AND THE FATHER SAYS, WELL,

YOU KNOW, YOU VOTED FOR

HIM.

I TOLD YOU NOT TO.

WHAT A GREAT COMMERCIAL.

IF THEY HAD EVERYTHING THAT

IS IN THAT BUDGET THAT IS

NUTTY, AND THERE ARE PLENTY

OF THINGS, OUTRAGEOUS THINGS

THAT ARE IN THERE, THAT THE

DEMOCRATS INSIST ON HOLDING

THE LINE ON.

OUTRAGEOUS.

TRIPLE, QUADRUPLE, MULTIPLE

LAYERS OF BUYERS SEE. BUREAUCRACY.

THEY WANT TO HOLD ON TO ALL

OF IT.

IF THEY WOULD SHOW THE

RIDICULOUSNESS TO THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND THEY

NEED SOMETHING BETTER.

Terry: WE ALMOST SEE A

LITTLE NUMBED BY OUR

BLESSINGS TO THIS WHOLE

THING.

I WONDER IF PEOPLE WOULD DO

ANYTHING IF THEY KNEW MORE

ABOUT IT?

Pat: UNFORTUNATELY, IT

WILL COME DOWN, AND THEN

THERE WILL BE A BIG FIGHT ON

WHO CAUSED IT.

AND THEY'LL SAY IT'S THE

REPUBLICANS, AND ALL THEY

WANT TO DO IS LOWER TAXES ON

THE RICH.

THEY OUGHT TO GIVE

.

Lee: THE CHRISTIAN

COMPANY OBJECTIVES TO THE

PROVISION THAT REQUIRES

COVERAGE FOR CONTRACEPTIVE

AND ABORTION- REDUCING

DRUGS.

THE JUDGE SAID THE MANDATE

COMPELS THE PLAINTIFFS TO

VIOLATE THEIR RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS OR FACE GOVERNMENT

FINES AND LAWSUITS.

LAWSUITS.

HE SAYS THE BATTLE IS THE

LORD'S.

THE U.S. MILITARY ACADEMY AT

WEST POINT HOSTED ITS FIRST

SAME-SEX WEDDINGS.

THEY WERE HELD OVER THE LAST

TWO WEEKENDS.

ONE OF THEM IN THE ACADEMY'S

HISTORIC CHAPEL.

ARMY CHAPLAINS FROM OTHER

POSTS PERFORMED THE

CEREMONIES BECAUSE THE

DENOMINATIONS OF THE WEST

POINT CHAPLAINS DO NOT ALLOW

THEM TO PERFORM SAME-SEX

MARRIAGES.

A FEW MONTHS LATER, "DON'T

ASK; DON'T TELL" WAS

REPEALED, AND GAYS WERE

ALLOWED TO SERVE OPENLY IN

THE MILITARY.

A SAD DAY, PAT.

Pat: GENERAL DOUGLESS

MCCARTHUR ROLLING OVER IN

THIS GRAVE.

ULYSSES S.GRANT ROLLING OVER

IN HIS.

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO OUR

CHERISHED INSTITUTION.

LEE?

Lee: THE 2012

REDEMPTIVE FILM FESTIVAL

HONORED MORE THAN 30 FILMS

FOR THEIR REDEEMING STORY

LINES.

ONE OF THE MOVIES IS CALLED

"THE PINK ROOM."

IT TELLS THE STORY OF YOUNG

GIRLS IN CAMBODIA TRAPPED IN

SEX TRAFFICKING.

AND AS HEATHER CELLS

REPORTS, ITS MESSAGE IS ONE

OF HOPE.

Reporter: THE PINK ROOM

LET'S THE VIEWERS IN ON THE

PAIN OF YOUNG TRAFFICKED

GIRLS IN THE VI THE VILLAGE

OF SWIPOCK.

PEDOPHILES FROM AROUND THE

WORLD ARRIVE DAILY TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO

WHEN YOU'RE DONE WITH YOUR

COFFEE?

Reporter: THE PINK ROOM

IS QUICK TO FOCUS ON A GROUP

IN SWIPOCK.

THE DIRECTOR, JOEL, SAYS HE

WANTED TO TELL THEIR

STORIES.

WE FOCUSED ON HOPE.

WE FOCUSED ON RESTORATION.

AND THAT'S NOT WHAT THIS

IS -- IT'S NOT ABOUT JUST

TALKING ABOUT HOW BAD THE

PROBLEM IS AND EVERYTHING,

BUT IT REALLY SETS ITSELF

APART BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT

SOLUTIONS AND IT'S ABOUT

HOPE.

PEOPLE ARE CRYING TEARS OF

JOY, RATHER THAN TEARS OF

DEPRESSION.

Reporter: THE PINK ROOM

SHOWS HOW THE AGAPE

ADMINISTRATION HELPS THOSE

GIRLS.

SHE DECIDED AT AGE 14 TO

ENTER A BROTHEL.

SHE QUICKLY FOUND HERSELF

TRAPPED IN BONDAGE, WORSE

THAN SHE COULD IMAGINE.

BUT WHEN SHE ARRIVED AT THE

AGAPE HOME, SHE FOUND A NEW

WORLD.

SHE HEARD, I LOVE, AND

THEY'RE LIKE, I'VE HEARD

THAT BEFORE, BUT THEN THEY

START LIVING IT AND

BELIEVING.

Reporter: THEY ARE

CURRENTLY REEDITING THE

DOCUMENT FOR PBS, AND HE

SAYS IT IS ALREADY AWAKENING

THE CHURCH AS VIEWERS BEGIN

TO SEE HOW TO HELP CHILDREN

WHO SUFFERED UNSPEAKABLE

EVIL.

PEOPLE ARE VERY HOPEFUL

WHEN THEY TALK TO US.

THEY SAY, I'VE SEEN A LOT OF

DOCUMENTARIES OF SEX

TRAFFICKING, BUT THIS MADE

ME FEEL GOOD AND I WAS

ACTUALLY HAPPY AND HELPFUL.

Reporter: HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Lee: ENCOURAGING TO

KNOW THAT PBS IS PICKING UP

THIS FILM.

Pat: I'M DELIGHTED.

THIS IS SO APPALLING.

IT DOES SOMETHING TO ME AND

IT SHOULD TO EVERYBODY

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

THE TRAFFICKING IN YOUNG

GIRLS AND YOUNG BOYS FOR

SEX.

AND THESE EVIL PEOPLE COMING

FROM EUROPE, FROM AMERICA,

FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE

WORLD, FROM THE MIDDLE EAST,

AND THEY GO INTO PLACES LIKE

THAILAND TO PREY ON THESE

KIDS AND TO VENT THEIR SICK

LUST ON THEM.

IT MAKES YOU SICK IN YOUR

STOMACH.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, IT MAY

SEEM SEXY IN FIRST, BUT IN

ACTUALITY, IT IS RUINING

SEX.

HERE ABOUT THIS VICE AND HOW

IT IS WARPING MINDS.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: PORNOGRAPHY, FROM

THE GREEK, PORNEO, WHICH

SPOKES OF SEXUALITY,

FORNICATION.

IT'S GOTTEN TO BE SOMETHING

THAT IS GOING MAINSTREAM,

AND EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT

PORN.

WELL, THE TEENS IN TODAY'S

WORLD ARE GROWING UP IN A

SOCIETY THAT IS JUST FILLED

WITH PORNOGRAPHY.

AND IT'S EASIER TO FIND THAN

EVER, THANKS TO THE

INTERNET.

AND MANY TEENS, REGRETTABLY,

STARTING AS EARLY AS NINE

AND 10 YEARS OLD, ARE

BECOMING ADDICTED.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS, THAT

ADDICTION COULD RUIN THEIR

LIVES.

Reporter: THE NUMBERS

OF STAGGERING, $100 BILLION

WORTH OF PORN BOUGHT EVERY

YEAR.

12% OF THE WORLD'S WEBSITES

OFFER THE ELICIT MATERIAL.

EACH DAY, 2.5 MILLION

PORNOGRAPHIC E-MAILS WHIZ

THROUGH CYBER-SPACE.

AND 67% OF MEN AND 49% OF

WOMEN SAY PORN IS

ACCEPTABLE.

OUR SOCIETY IS JUST

SATURATED WITH IT.

Reporter: FORMER ADDICT

C.J. SAYS HE GOT HOOKED AT

AGE EIGHT.

HE SAYS ON AVERAGE, KIDS GET

HOOKED AT 11 YEARS OLD.

NOW IT IS ACCESSIBLE TO

EVERYONE.

Reporter: AUBREY HAD

ALMOST CONSTANT SEXUAL ABUSE

FROM HER GRANDFATHER AND HER

HUNUNCLE.

NOW A MEMBER OF THE HUMAN

TRAFFICKING TASKFORCE IN

SOUTHERN COLORADO, TERRY

PUTS A LOT OF BLAME FOR IT

ON THE INTERNET.

BEFORE PORNOGRAPHY WAS A

SECRETIVE, DARK CULTURE, AND

NOW IT IS EVERY DAY LIFE.

Reporter: EVERY SECOND,

28,000 PEOPLE ARE ONLINE

LOOKING, AND THE SALES RING

UP AT $3,000 EACH SECOND.

TODAY'S GENERATION,

YOUNGER GENERATION, RECEIVES

MORE TEMPTATIONS PER SECOND

THAN ANY OTHER GENERATION IN

THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

Reporter: SO WHEN IT

COMES TO PORNOGRAPHY AND OUR

KIDS, AND THIS HYPERPAST,

HYPERTECHNOLOGICAL AGE, IT

IS ALMOST EVERY SECOND WITH

EVERY DEVICE.

THEY BOTH ADMINISTER TO

PEOPLE FROM A FREE ADDICTION

THAT IS CONSTANTLY

AVAILABLE.

I HAVE TEENAGERS ADMIT TO

ME THEY HAVE THEIR PHONES

AND BUDS WITH THEM AT NIGHT,

AND THEY'RE SEXTING, AND

THEY'RE SENDING PICTURES OF

THEMSELVES TO OTHERS.

Reporter: AND THIS IS

HITTING JUST AS HARD INSIDE

THE CHURCH AS OUT.

ANDY BRAIN LEARNED THAT

AFTER CRITICIZING A FRIEND

FOR OFFERING PORN CHANNELS

AT HIS HOTEL CHAINS.

HE GOES, TO BE HONEST,

YOU KNOW WHO THE BIGGEST

COSTUMERS OF THIS

PORNOGRAPHY, AND HE NAMED A

CERTAIN DOMINATION.

Reporter: BRAINARD ADS

BRAINARD ADMINISTERS TO

10s OF THOUSANDS OF KIDS.

90% OF THE PEOPLE THAT

COME TO US, WHO ARE LEARNING

ABOUT CHRISTIAN VALUES, 90%

OF THOSE ARE DEEPLY ADDICTED

TO PORNOGRAPHY.

Reporter: AND SHELLEY

INTERVIEWED CHRISTIAN TEENS

AND GIRLS.

21% ADMITTED TO SENDING A

NAKED PHOTO OF THEMSELVES TO

SOMEONE THROUGH THEIR

PHONE.

Reporter: AND THIS

ADDICTION COULD BE JUST AS

BAD AS THE HARDEST DRUGS.

THE GROUP, "FIGHT THE NEW

DRUG," SHOWED THIS VIDEO OF

HOW THE BRAIN RELEASED THESE

CHEMICALS WHEN A PERSON

SERVICE THEMSELVES WITH

PORN.

AND THE BRAIN CALLS OUT FOR

MORE AND MORE OF THIS

SATISFACTION.

A KID WHO IS ADDICTED TO

PORNOGRAPHY AT 13, 14,

BEGINS THIS PROBLEM IN THE

BRAIN.

IT BECOMES STRONGER THE MORE

YOU WORK IT.

Reporter: AND THE BRAIN

THEN CRAVES STRONGER STUFF

TO GET THE SAME

SATISFACTION.

AND NOWADAYS, IT IS RIGHT

THERE ON THE INTERNET

WAITING.

A TEEN TODAY CAN ACCESS

HARD-CORE MATERIAL THAT 15

YEARS AGO, A SEASONED

PURVEYOR OF PORNOGRAPHY

WOULD HAVE HAD A HARD TIME

ACQUIRING.

Reporter: THIS

THERAPIST SAYS IT IS

DETRIMENTAL AND DANGEROUS.

WHEN IS A HUMAN BEING

READY TO PROCESS A RAPE

SCENE, TORTURE, BESTIALITY,

INCEST --

Reporter: IT IS RUINING

THE WAY MANY YOUNG MEN LOOK

AT WOMEN.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

NOW A YOUNG WOMAN IS

SOMETHING OF A CONQUEST.

Reporter: AND STUDIES

ARE SHOWING IT IS MAKING

MANY MEN AND WOMEN ALMOST

INCAPABLE OF ENJOYING SEX

WITH THEIR REAL LIFE

PARTNERS.

THERE IS INCREASED

SEPARATION AND DIVORCE.

THERE IS LESS SENSITIVITY IN

THEIR MARRIAGES, AND THERE

IS DECREASED SEXUAL

RELATIONS.

ROW

Reporter: SO THE TEENS

OF TODAY NEED TO REALIZE

THEY MAY BE RISKING THEIR

OWN MARRIAGES.

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN

TO OUR KIDS IN A WORLD WHERE

IT IS OMNI PRESENT,

AVAILABLE ANYWHERE ANY

TIME.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM COLORADO

SPRINGS, COLORADO.

Pat: THANKS, PAUL.

A VERY NICE COVERAGE OF IT

AND VERY THOROUGH.

THIS IS AN A AN APPALLING

THING, BUT IT IS HAPPENING,

AND IT IS AN ADDICTION.

JUST LIKE MARIJUANA MAY BE

THE GATEWAY DRUG INTO HARDER

USE.

SO A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

PORNOGRAPHY IS THE GATEWAY

INTO MUCH MORE SERIOUS

SEXUAL ADDICTION.

THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE SEX

ADDICTS ARE WITHOUT

CONTROL.

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

IT COULD RUIN THEIR

MARRIAGE.

IT COULD RUIN THEIR JOBS, IT

COULD RUIN THEIR FINANCIAL

FUTURE.

IT COULD RUIN EVERYTHING

THEY'RE DOING.

JUST LIKE GAMBLING, JUST

LIKE OTHER KINDS OF

ADDICTION.

WE NEED TO REALIZE WHAT

WE'RE DOING AND WHAT WE'RE

ALLOWING.

AND THIS WHOLE BUSINESS,

WELL, THEY'VE GOT FIRST

AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO PUT THIS

GARBAGE OUT ON THE AIR --

WELL, THAT SOUNDS GOOD IN

THEORY FOR SOME LAWYER IN

HARVARD, BUT THE REALITY IS

WE HAVE LOOSED UPON OUR

NATION A FLOOD OF HORRIBLE

MATERIAL THAT IS DESTROYING

THE YOUTH.

AND YOU SAW THOSE

STATISTICS.

IT IS SIMPLY APPALLING HOW

PERVASIVE THIS STUFF IS.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, THE REASON

IT IS ACCESSIBLE IS BECAUSE

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEBODY AT

THE TOP WHO IS MAKING LOTS

OF MONEY.

Pat: BILLIONS AND

BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS, ABSOLUTELY.

AND SOME OF THE MAJOR

CORPORATIONS DEALING WITH

THE INTERVIEW AND TELEVISION

AND CABLE TV, THIS IS THE

MAIN SOURCE OF THEIR MONEY,

AND THEY DON'T WANT TO ADMIT

IT.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

STILL AHEAD, A HUSBAND WHO

CLIMBED THE CORPORATE LADDER

AND LEFT HIS FAMILY BEHIND.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO SHOW

YOU HOW TO ADD A LITTLE

SWEET AND SPICE TO YOUR

CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION,

COURTESY OF SOUTHERN

LIVING'S NORMAN KING.

Terry: HAVE YOU EVER

FELT ON EDGE OR DOWN TO YOUR

LAST STRAW?

WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH?

FOR PATTY SMITH, THAT'S WHEN

HER HUSBAND SAID HE WANTED

TO PACK UP AND MOVE THE

FAMILY FOR THE 14th TIME

IN NINE YEARS.

Reporter: FROM THE

OUTSIDE, TIM AND PATTY SMITH

LOOKED LIKE THEY HAD IT

ALL.

WE HAD A CONDO.

WE HAD JOBS.

WE'RE SMILING IN ALL OF OUR

PICTURES, YOU KNOW, FROM

BACK IN THOSE DAYS.

I THINK EVERYTHING WAS

BASED ON THE DOLLAR.

WE'RE WERE ALL LOOKING ABOUT

GETTING AHEAD.

YOU WANTED THAT AMERICAN

DREAM.

Reporter: WHEN TIM AND

PATTY FIRST MET AT A MUTUAL

FRIEND'S WEDDING, IT WAS

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.

IT WAS WONDERFUL.

WE WANTED TO BE TOGETHER AS

MUCH AS WE COULD.

Reporter: SINCE THEY

LIVED IN DIFFERENT TOWNS,

THEY SPENT HOURS ON THE

PHONE.

TIM FINALLY POPPED THE

QUESTION.

I'D BEEN EXCITED ABOUT

MARRYING TIM, WE WERE DATING

FOR THREE YEARS AND PROBABLY

ENGAGED FOR TWO YEARS.

SO I WAS READY TO BECOME A

WIFE.

Reporter: AND NOT ONLY

WAS PATTY BECOMING A WIFE,

SHE BECAME A MOM TO A CHILD

FROM TIM'S FIRST MARRIAGE.

I HAD A WHOLE DAY OF CAN

I BE A MOTHER?

I WAS 21 AND IT WAS SCARY.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

PROBLEMS BEGAN TO SURFACE

IMMEDIATELY.

THE FIRST YEAR OF

MARRIAGE WAS A LITTLE TOUGH,

I'D SAY.

I WAS WORKING SEPARATE SHIPS

TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

A LOT OF TIMES WE WERE

PASSING SHIPS, AND HE WOULD

COME HOME AND I WAS ALREADY

DONE, AND I WOULD COME HOME,

AND HE WOULD BE SLEEPING.

IT LIMITED OUR

COMMUNICATION.

Reporter: THE LACK OF

COMMUNICATION WASN'T THE

ONLY PROBLEM.

SIX MONTHS AFTER THEY

MARRIED, TIM RECEIVED A JOB

OFFER IN CALIFORNIA AND

ACCEPTED.

THIS MADE THE SECOND MOVE

FOR PATTY IN SIX MONTHS.

I NO FAMILY.

I HAD NO FRIENDS.

I HAD NO NEIGHBORS THAT I

KNEW A ALL.

IT WAS BASICALLY ME AND

TIM.

Reporter: TIM AND PATTY

HAD TWO DAUGHTERS JUST A

COUPLE OF YEARS APART.

THE INCREASED

RESPONSIBILITIES LEFT THEM

BOTH STRESSED AND

DISAPPOINTED.

AT THAT POINT IN TIME,

SHE'S DEVOTING HERSELF TO

THE KIDS.

I'M STILL DEVOTING MYSELF TO

THE CAREER.

I FELT NEGLECTED.

I DID.

I FELT LIKE I SHOULD BE THE

PRIORITY, AND I WASN'T

FEELING CHERISHED.

IT WAS ALL ABOUT ME.

AND I WAS LETTING -- INSTEAD

TALKING ABOUT IT, YOU KNOW,

I WOULD KIND OF SHUT DOWN.

IF THINGS BOTHERED ME, I

WOULD GET ANGRY.

I WOULD YELL AND SCREAM.

AND SHE WOULD CRY.

HONESTLY, WE LIVED A LOT OF

OUR LIFE LIKE THIS, WITH

JUST ME COMING IN AND GOING

OFF THE HANDLE AND SHE WOULD

CRY.

WE WOULDN'T TALK ABOUT IT.

WE WOULD GET UP THE NEXT DAY

AND SHE WAS HOPING IT WOULD

GET BETTER AND I WAS HOPING

IT WOULD GO AWAY.

I WAS JUST CHASING THE

DOLLAR.

I WOULD TALK TO MY BOSS

ABOUT HOW WE COULD DO THING

AND WHERE WE COULD GO TO

MAKE MORE MONEY.

Reporter: TIM MOVED THE

FAMILY 14 TIMES IN NINE

YEARS AS HE CLIMBED THE

CORPORATE LADDER.

THE FAMILY KEPT JUMPING FROM

ONE PLACE TO THE NEXT, AND

PATTY'S RESENTMENT GREW.

AT ONE POINT, WHEN TIM TRIED

TO MOVE THE FAMILY FROM

INDIANA TO KENTUCKY, PATTY

PUT UP A FIGHT.

I WAS FINALLY CLENCHING

MY FEET AND SAID, I'M NOT

GOING.

I DON'T WANT TO MOVE AGAIN.

AND IT WAS REALLY HARD.

AND I SAID, YOU KNOW -- AND

HE SAID I'M GOING WITH OR

WITHOUT YOU, AND I WAS FINE

WITH THAT.

I WAS FINE BECAUSE I WAS

DONE.

AND WE WERE NOT GETTING

ALONE.

WE WERE FIGHTING ALL THE

TIME.

Reporter: BUT PATTY

RELUCTANTLY FOLLOWED TIM

AGAIN AND FELL INTO A

DEPRESSION.

ONE DAY SHE TOOK HER

DAUGHTER TO THE LIBRARY.

SHE MET A WOMAN THERE WHO

INVITED HER TO A BIBLE

STUDY.

ALTHOUGH RELIGION DIDN'T

PLAY A BIG ROLE IN HER LIFE

AS AN ADULT, PATTY HAD GROWN

UP IN CHURCH AND REALIZED

SHE NEEDED TO TURN TO GOD

FOR ANSWERS.

STUDYING THE BIBLE HELPED

ME BE AT PEACE WITH GOD.

SHE SAT WITH ME, AND WE READ

THE WIFE OF NOBLE CHARACTER,

PROVERBS 31, AND I HAD NEVER

READ THAT BEFORE.

AND AFTER SHE WAS DONE

READING, SHE SAID WHERE DO

YOU SEE YOURSELF IN HERE?

AND I LITERALLY DIDN'T SEE

MYSELF ANYWHERE, AND MY

HEART REALLY DROPPED.

AND I SAID NOWHERE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME I WAS

CONVICTED.

I SAID, GOD, I WANT TO DO

THIS YOUR WAY.

I WANT TO BE THE KIND OF

WIFE YOU WANT ME TO BE.

AND I NEED YOU TO SHOW ME.

Reporter: PATTY BEGAN

GOING TO CHURCH AND READING

HER BIBLE.

IF I GET MAD,

SHE'S, LIKE, I'LL PRAY FOR

YOU.

WE'VE SAID A LOT OF THINGS

TO EACH OTHER IN OUR

MARRIAGE, BUT "I'LL PRAY FOR

YOU" WAS NEVER ONE OF THEM.

Reporter: HE BECAME

UNCOMFORTABLE WITH PATTY'S

NEWFOUND RELIGION.

TIM REACHED HIS BREAKING

POINT WHEN PATTY TOLD HIM

SHE WAS TO BE BAPTIZED AT

THE CHURCH.

I WAS LIVID.

I WAS LIKE, IF THIS IS WHAT

YOU WANT OUT OF YOUR LIFE,

SO BE IT.

BUT I'M LEAVING YOU.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO

HAPPEN.

Reporter: BUT PATTY'S

CALM DEMEANOR CONTINUED, AND

SHE WAS BAPTIZED.

AFTER SHE WAS BAPTIZED, I

REALLY STARTED SEEING HER AS

A PERSON.

I GUESS THE CHANGE WAS THERE

ALL ALONE, BUT I WASN'T

WILLING TO LOOK AT IT AND

SEE IT.

I CAN REMEMBER HER ALWAYS

BEING SO POSITIVE ABOUT

EVERYTHING.

AND I GOT THIS FEELING, WHAT

IS IT THAT I'M MISSING IN

THIS?

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

TIM BEGAN TO LOOK FOR

ANSWERS, TOO.

HE WENT TO A BIBLE STUDY.

I NEVER FELT PUSHED, BUT

I WAS LOVED.

I GUESS THAT'S THE BEST WORD

I COULD USE.

THESE PEOPLE GENUINELY LOVE

YOU AS A PERSON.

AND IT REALLY SAU SOFTENED

MY HEART TOWARDS WHAT CHURCH

COULD BE.

Reporter: JUST MONTHS

LATER, HE BECAME A

CHRISTIAN, TOO, AND WAS

BAPTIZED.

I CAN REMEMBER COMING OUT

OF THE WATER REALIZING ITS

ALL NEW.

I FELT A TRUE CLEANSING.

WE WERE PRAYING TOGETHER,

WHERE WE HAVE NEVER DONE

THAT BEFORE.

HE WAS LISTENING TO ME

AGAIN.

AND THIS WAS LIKE WE WERE

DATING AGAIN, AND EVEN

BETTER THAN IT WAS BEFORE.

I KNEW IT WAS ALL COMING

FROM CHRIST, THE FOUNDATION

OF OUR MARRIAGE.

Reporter: THE SMITHS

BEGAN TO TALK THROUGH THEIR

PROBLEMS.

THEY SAY GOD HAS COMPLETELY

RENEWED THEIR MARRIAGE.

PATTY HAS WRITTEN A BOOK

ABOUT THEIR JOURNEY.

IF YOU CAN MAKE MONEY --

WE ALL HAVE TO DO THAT AND

WE ALL UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT

DON'T LET IT BE AT THE

SACRIFICE OF YOUR FAMILY.

CONCENTRATE ON YOUR WIFE.

WE'RE LIVING WITH LESS MONEY

NOW THAN I'VE EVER MADE IN

OUR LIFE, AND WE'RE HAPPIER

THAN WE HAVE EVER BEEN.

LET GOD IN.

PRAY, DON'T UNDERESTIMATE

THE POWER OF PRAYER.

THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE IN

CHRIST.

THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE IN

HIM.

AND MY MARRIAGE WAS

HOPELESS, BUT WHEN I GAVE IT

TO THE LORD, HE FIXED IT.

JESUS WILL FIX IT.

Terry: LET GOD IN.

MARRIAGE IS TUV.

TOUGH.

TWO IMPERFECT PEOPLE COME

TOGETHER LOOK ARE TO NIRVANA

IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH

EACH OTHER.

QUICKLY WE FIND OUT THAT

WE'RE SEL SELFISH PEOPLE

AND WE'RE NEEDY.

AND THE OTHER PERSON CAN'T

MEET OUR NEEDS.

THAT PERSON ISN'T SUPPOSED.

GOD IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN OUR

MARRIAGE.

IT TAKES THREE.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW CHRIST IN

YOUR MARRIAGE -- MAYBE

YOU'VE THAT A COMMITMENT AND

GONE TO CHURCH AND DONE ALL

OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU

THINK MAYBE YOU A BELIEVER,

COME HOME TO THE HEART OF

GOD TODAY.

BEGIN TO ASK HIM FOR YOU.

DON'T FORCE YOUR SPOUSE.

GO TO HIM FOR YOU.

GET CLOSE TO HIM YOURSELF,

AND COMING CLOSE TO HIM

BRINGS US CLOSE TO EACH

OTHER.

IT SOLVES SO MANY THINGS.

IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE IN

YOUR MARRIAGE, IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING, WE'VE GOT A

GREAT LITTLE BOOKLET.

IT IS FREE.

IT'S CALLED "LOVE AND

MARRIAGE."

AND IT TALKS ABOUT WHAT DOES

GOD'S WORD HAVE TO SAY ABOUT

IT.

JESUS CAME SO WE MIGHT HAVE

LIFE AND HAVE IT

ABUNDANTLY.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT IN

YOUR MARRIAGE, GET THIS

BOOKLET.

IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC

STRUGGLE IN YOUR LIFE AND

[CHRISTMAS MUSIC.]

Lee: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

10 PEOPLE ARE DEAD AFTER AN

ATTACK ON CHRISTIANS IN

NORTHEASTERN NIGERIA.

THE HAPPENED IN THE VILLAGE

OF CHIBOC IN BORNO STATE.

THE RADICAL ISLAMIST SECT,

BOKO HARAM, HAVE TARGETED

CHURCHES AND GOVERNMENT

STEACIALT ESTABLISHMENTS IN

THAT REGION.

CBN PROGRAMMING IS REACHING

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

WHAT CBN IS DOING AROUND THE

WORLD BY LOGGING ON TO

CBN.COM/INTERNATIONAL.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND TERRY

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, IT'S A HAPPY

TIME.

ARE YOU TRAVELLING THIS

CHRISTMAS?

Terry: I AM NOT.

I AM STAYING AT HOME.

Pat: THAT IS PRETTY

EXHAUSTING, TO TAKE A FAMILY

TRAVELLING.

Terry: IT IS.

YOU'RE SHIPPING PACKAGES.

WHEN WE WERE GOING UP NORTH,

WE WERE SHIPPING SNOWSHOES

AND SKIES.

WE'RE JUST STAYING HOME.

Pat: I WONDER WHY THERE

ARE NOT MORE SHOOTINGS

DURING CHRISTMAS OF LOVED

ONES BECAUSE OF THE

FRANTIC -- I MEAN, PEOPLE

GET MORE STRESSED.

Terry: IT IS A

STRESSFUL TIME.

YOU HAVE TO FIND THOSE -- TO

ME, YOU HAVE TO SEEK THEM

AND FIND THEM, THOSE RES

RESPITES.

Pat: I THINK ONE OF THE

BEST CHRISTMASES WE'VE HAD

WITH MY FAMILY IS WHEN WE

TOOK A TOUR OVER TO ISRAEL

AND ON CHRISTMAS EVE, WE

WERE IN A LITTLE TOWN IN

BETHLEHEM.

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL TIME.

THE NEXT DAY, WE WERE IN A

HOTEL.

NO WORRY ABOUT TREES,

MISTLETOE, GARLAND, ANY OF

THAT JUNK.

WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY OF IT.

WE WERE THERE, AND ON

CHRISTMAS DAY, AS I RECALL,

WE HAD A BAPTISM SERVICE.

IT WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL

BECAUSE WE WERE THERE.

Terry: YOU STAYED FOCUS

ON THE THINGS OF JESUS.

Pat: ON THE THINGS OF

JESUS.

NOBODY HAD TO WRAP ANYTHING,

BUY ANYTHING, EXCHANGE ANY

PRESENTS.

NONE OF THAT JUNK.

JUNK.

Terry: KEEPING IT

SIMPLE.

Pat: IT WAS SO SIMPLE

AND SO BEAUTIFUL.

AND WE REALLY HAD A NICE

TIME.

AS I RECALL, IT WAS

CHRISTMAS DAY, I THINK, AND

WE BAPTIZED 59 PEOPLE IN THE

JORDAN RIVER.

IT WAS QUITE A TIME.

Terry: WOW, I GUESS

SO.

Pat: IT WAS WARM,

PLEASANT, VERY NICE.

ANYHOW, BY NOW, FOLKS, YOUR

MAILBOX IS PROBABLY STUFFED

WITH CHRISTMAS CARDS FROM

FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND

WELL-WISHERS.

IF YOU TAKE ONE OF THOSE

CARDS AND LOOK AT THE

ENVELOPE, CHANCES ARE ARE A

SMALL STICKER HAS BEEN

AFFIXED TO THE BACK.

IT IS CALLED A CHRISTMAS

SEAL.

AND BEST-SELLING AUTHOR ACE

COLLINS TOLD KRISTI WHY THAT

SEAL IS THERE.

Kristi: OKAY, SO I'VE

ALWAYS WONDERED WHEN I GET A

LETTER AND THE CARD AND I

LOOK AT THE VERY BACK OF THE

ENVELOPE AND I SEE A LITTLE

SEAL.

IT'S A LITTLE SEAL.

IT IS THERE USUALLY TO RAISE

MONEY FOR A VERY IMPORTANT

CAUSE.

IT BEGAN ALMOST 100 YEARS

AGO IN HOLLAND.

WHEN A MAN WHO WAS A POSTAL

WORKER FELT SORRY FOR THE

PEOPLE ON HIS ROUTE WHO HAD

TUBERCULOSIS.

HE WANTED TO FIND A WAY --

BECAUSE THEY WERE TREATING

IT PRETTY SUCCESSFUL -- TO

ALLOW THESE PEOPLE TO GO TO

THIS HOSPITAL AND BE

TREATED.

SO HE PRINTED UP STAMPS AND

SOLD THEM FOR A HALF PENNY

APIECE.

UNTIL STAMPS WERE SOLD THAT

FIRST YEAR TO RAISE $18,000,

WHICH WAS A LOT OF MONEY IN

1906, FOR THOSE PEOPLE TO GO

TO THE HOSPITAL.

IT SPREAD TO THE UNITED

STATES.

AND A LADY WHO USED TO WORK

FOR THE RED CROSS PICKED IT

UP, AND THANKS TO A

PHILADELPHIA NEWSPAPER

RAISED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

OF DOLLARS THE FIRST YEAR IT

WAS USED IN THE UNITED

STATES.

AND THERE ARE A LOT OF

PEOPLE WHO OWE THEIR BREATH

OF LIFE TO A CHRISTMAS

SEAL.

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

THAT.

Terry: I NEVER KNEW

THAT.

WE NEED TO WATCH "THE 700

CLUB."

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

WHAT'S NEXT.

Terry: THAT'S

UNBELIEVABLE.

THERE ARE SO MANY WONDERFUL

TRADITIONS THIS TIME OF

YEAR, AND IT IS FUN TO KNOW

HOW THEY CAME ABOUT.

I WANT TO SAY ACE COLLINS

HAS A GREAT BOOK CALLED

"STORIES BEHIND THE GREAT

TRADITIONS OF CHRISTMAS."

IT IS A REALLY FUN BOOK.

AND IT WOULD BE FUN TO READ

WITH THE FAMILY DURING

CHRISTMAS.

Pat: HE

IS

AN

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ALL THESE

THINGS.

Terry: WELL, THE

CHRISTMAS CLOCK IS TICKING,

AND TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO

BUY THAT PERFECT PRESENT,

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BRAVE

CROWDED SHOPPING MALLS AND

PACKED PARKING LOTS TO GET

YOUR GIFTS.

NORMAN KING SHOWS KRISTI HOW

TO MAKE SOMETHING SWEET AND

SPICY RIGHT IN YOUR OWN

KITCHEN.

Kristi: FOR MORE THAN

40 YEARS, THE EDITORS AT

SOUTHERN LIVING HAVE

DELIGHTED READERS WITH

ENTERTAINING IDEAS AND

RECIPES FOR TRIED AND TRUE

SOUTHERN CUISINE.

AND WHILE SOMETIMES THESE

CLASSIC RECIPES MAY SEEM

LIKE A LOT OF WORK, NORMAN

KING SAYS YOU CAN RING EN

THE CHRISTMAS SEASON WITH A

LITTLE SOUTHERN

HOSPITALITY.

USING HIS COOKBOOK, HE

SHARES HOW TO MAKE AMAZING

GOODIES FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR

CHRISTMAS LIST.

CHRISTMAS IS ON ITS WAY,

AND WHETHER YOU WOULD LIKE

YOUR HOLIDAY TO BE A LITTLE

SWEET OR FILLED WITH A

LITTLE SPICE, NORMAN KING

HAS THE RES SPIES THAT WILL

HAVE A LITTLE -- RECIPES

THAT WILL HAVE SOMETHING FOR

EVERYONE.

GROWING UP IN THE SOUTH,

LIVING IN THE SOUTH, IT'S

ALL ABOUT HOSPITALITY.

HOW WE DO THAT, WE SHOW IT

THROUGH OUR LOVE AND WE SHOW

IT THROUGH OUR FOOD.

AND ALWAYS LIKE TO GIVE OUR

GUESTS, FRIENDS, FAMILY,

LOVED ONES, EVEN IF YOU STOP

BY FOR A LITTLE TEA --

Kristi: A LITTLE

SOMETHING SOMETHING.

EXACTLY.

Kristi: AND WE CAN TELL

YOU LIVE IN THE SOUTH

BECAUSE YOU KEEP CALLING ME

MA'AM.

EVEN THOUGH I AM ONLY 29

YEARS OLD -- MY FINGERS ARE

CROSSED.

WHAT WE HAVE IS A HONEY

PECAN BUTTER.

A SIMPLE STICK OF BUTTER,

PECANS, AND YOU CAN GIVE IT

TO YOUR FRIENDS OR PUT IT ON

FRESH BISCUITS OUT OF THE

OVEN.

AND WE HAVE A HOT FUDGE

SAUCE, AND YOU CAN USE IT

FOR ICE CREAM OR ON TOP OF

BISCUITS, WHATEVER.

Kristi: YOU CAN NEVER

GO WRONG WITH FUDGE.

AND ONE THING WE ALTS

ALSO LOVE IN THE SOUTH IS

LEMON CURRIE.

IT CAN BE A LITTLE FUSSY,

BUT I'M GOING TO SHOULD YOU

THE SECRETS.

Kristi: AS YOU'RE

SHOWING ME THIS -- MAYBE

BECAUSE I'M A NORTHERN GIRL,

I HAD NEVER REALLY HEARD OF

LEMON CURD.

WHAT DO PEOPLE USE LEMON

CURD FOR?

LEMON CURD IS PRETTY MUCH

AN ALL PURPOSE DELICIOUS

SOMETHING.

IT GOES ON ANYTHING.

IT IS VERY DESSERTY.

WE USE IT TO MAKE LEMON

MERINGUE PIES.

YOU CAN TOP IT ON CAKE.

YOU CAN USE IT FOR A VARIETY

OF THINGS.

SINCE WE MAKE IT A LOT, IT

IS KIND OF LIKE A BASE FOR A

SWEET/TART KIND OF ACCENT TO

WHATEVER KIND OF SWEET THAT

YOU LIKE.

Kristi: LEMON MERINGUE

PIE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE.

I DISTRACTED, AND WE SAW YOU

PUT IN SUGAR AND BUTTER.

WE WANT TO HEAT THIS UP

UNTIL THE BUTTER MELTS AND

SUGAR IS DISSOLVED.

Kristi: DO YOU WANT TO

PUT THE BUTTER IN FIRST?

NO.

YOU WANT TO DO IT ALL AT THE

SAME TIME.

AS I SAID, IT IS A LITTLE

FUSSY.

IN ORDER TO KEEP THAT DOWN,

YOU WANT TO MELT EVERYTHING

AT THE SAME TIME SO IT

DOESN'T GET TOO HOT.

Kristi:

Kristi: WHAT'S THE KEY

TO LEMON CURD?

SOMETIMES I JUST WANT TO BUY

IT --

THE KEY IS TEMPERING THE

EGGS.

BECAUSE THEY SORT OF

SCRAMBLE.

WE DO THIS PROCESS CALLED

TE TEMPERING, WHICH IS

ADDING A MIXTURE TO THE

EGGS.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT.

ARE WE GOING TO DO THAT

NOW?

WE ARE.

I'M GOING TO NEED YOU TO

GRAB THAT.

Kristi: GOTCHA.

I'M GOING TO WHISK UP

THESE EGGS HERE, AND I'M

GOING TO NEED YOU TO GET A

HALF LADLE FULL OF THAT

MIXTURE.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO SLOWLY

POUR THAT --

Kristi: INTO THE EGGS?

YES.

IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO HAVE AN

EXTRA HAND.

Kristi: THAT'S WHAT

MAKES THE HOLIDAYS SO FUN,

WHEN THE FAMILIES COME

TOGETHER AND YOU'RE COOKING

TOGETHER AND EATING TOGETHER

AND IT'S LOVELY.

ANOTHER LADLE, I LIKE THIS

LADLE.

THIS IS CALLED TEMPERING

IT?

YES.

AND NOW THE EGGS HAVE A

CHANCE TO GET --

Kristi: ALL

ACCLIMATED.

WE WHISK THAT BACK IN.

Kristi: IT CAN BE TOO

HOT IN THE HOUSE.

IF WE WERE AT HOME, HOW LONG

WOULD YOU BE STIRRING THIS?

THIS TAKE ABOUT 15

MINUTES.

THE WAY YOU CAN TELL IS IT

WILL COAT THE BACK OF THE

SPOON.

Kristi: KIND OF LIKE

PUDDING.

EXACTLY.

BUT A LOT THINNER AND

VELVETY.

Kristi: THAT'S KIND OF

HOW I LIKE TO DESCRIBE

MYSELF, THINNER AND

VELVETY.

AND THEN WE HAVE THE

SPICE.

Kristi: AU I'M ALL

ABOUT THE SPICE, NORMAN.

WE'VE TAKEN THESE AND

WASHED THEM.

Kristi: DO WE NEED TO

TURN ON THE STOVE?

NO.

NOT FOR THIS.

Kristi: OH, WE'RE NOT

COOKING.

WE'RE MIXING.

YOU MIX THIS TOGETHER,

AND YOU BRING IT UP TO A

BOIL OVER A MEDIUM HEAT.

Kristi: OUT OF

CURIOSITY, WHY WOULD A

PERSON WANT THIS?

YOU COULD USE THIS FOR

SALAD GREENS -- ANY WAY YOU

WOULD USE A HOT SAUCE.

WE HAVE A SPICY TANG WITH A

LITTLE SWEETNESS.

AND YOU CAN GIVE IT TO

FRIENDS AND EVERY TIME THEY

PULL IT OUT, THEY'LL THINK

OF YOU.

Kristi: AND SPEAKING OF

US, WHAT ELSE CAN WE GIVE TO

PEOPLE SO THEY LIKE US

MORE?

A BASIC CHICKEN RUB, SO

THEY CAN PUT IT ON CHICKEN

AND TURKEY.

AND THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR

WHERE YOU'RE MAKING A LOT,

AND YOU CAN

GIVE THOSE TO

YOU'RE FRIENDS AND THEY CAN

PUT IT ON

THEIR HOLIDAY

BIRDS AND THEY'LL THINK OF

YOU.

Kristi: I LOVE THE FACT

WITH EACH OF THESE GIFTS

WE'RE GIVING THEM, THERE ARE

RECIPES ON THE FRONT.

EVEN WITH THE CHICKEN RUB,

WE'VE GOT THE RECIPES YOU

CAN USE IT FOR AND THE WHOLE

NINE YARDS, WHICH TAKES THE

GIFT TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF

LOVE.

THE FINAL THING IS THE

VINAIGRETTE.

A LITTLE VINAIGRETTE,

WITH A LITTLE BIT OF PARSLEY

IN THERE AND GARLIC AND

SHALLOTS.

LIKE YOU'RE MAKING A REGULAR

VINAIGRETTE, AND PUT IT ON

SALAD GREENS, HOWEVER YOU

WANT TO USE IT, AND IT IS

RIGHT THERE FOR YOU.

Kristi: NORMAN, THESE

ARE FANTASTIC IDEAS.

THE ONE TIP MY MOTHER ALWAYS

TAUGHT ME, NOT ONLY MAKE IT

TASTE GOOD, BUT PRESENTATION

IS THE KEY.

SO PRESENT IT WITH PRETTY

DRESSINGS.

WHERE IS MY GIFT, NORMAN?

CHOCOLATE SAUCE.

Kristi: THANK YOU.

FOR MORE IDEAS, CHECK OUT

THE BOOK "SOUTHERN LIVING

COOKING BASICS," WHICH IS

AVAILABLE IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, NORMAN.

I APPRECIATE YOU.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

SOME OF THIS TIME TO ANSWER

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, I HAVE AN E-MAIL

QUESTION FROM SOMEONE CALLED

A PRAYING MOM.

SHE SAYS, "WHAT IS YOUR

SUGGESTION FOR A 21-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER STILL LIVING AT

HOME WHO HAS DECIDED NO

LONGER TO GO TO CHURCH.

SHE SAYS THAT SHE PRAYS, BUT

I DON'T SEE THE FRUIT OF THE

SPIRIT OF HER LIFE.

SHOULD I MAKE IT KNOWN SHE

HAS TO GO AS LONG AS SHE IS

LIVING IN MY HOME OR JUST

CONTINUE PRAYING FOR HER?"

Pat: I WOULD STRONGLY

RECOMMEND THAT YOU NOT FORCE

A 21-YEAR-OLD TO GO TO

CHURCH.

THAT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA.

I THINK YOU NEED TO FIND

SOME REALLY ON FIRE,

ATTRACTIVE YOUNG PEOPLE, AND

TELL YOUR DAUGHTER YOU'RE

WE'RE GOING OUT TO DINNER

WITH "A," "B," AND "C," AND

YOU GO OUT TO A RESTAURANT

AND LET THESE PEOPLE TALK TO

YOUR DAUGHTER.

WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,

SOME CHURCH SERVICES ARE

ABOUT AS MUCH FUN AS A LEG

CRAMP.

WHY WOULD YOU FORCE A

21-YEAR-OLD TO ENDURE THAT

TORMENT?

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: I MEAN,

SERIOUSLY --

Terry: I AGREE WITH YOU

BECAUSE IT'S YOUR DAUGHTER'S

HEART THAT YOU WANT TO HAVE

TOUCHED.

AND YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES A

MISSIONS TRIP MAKES ALL OF

THE DIFFERENCE, IF YOU GO

WITH HER.

Pat: THAT WILL DO IT.

BUT EMPTY RITUALS IS

RIDICULOUS.

WE USED TO FORCE CHILDREN TO

SING SONGS, LET GOOD AND

KINDRED GO -- I MEAN, THEY

WERE SINGING LIES.

AND SO WE FORCED THEM --

WELL, SING, CHARLIE.

WELL, I DON'T FEEL LIKE.

WELL, GET REAL, GET HONEST,

AND GET SOME PEOPLE WHO LOVE

THE LORD.

THERE ARE MANY FELLOWSHIPS,

AND WHAT WAS JUST SAID IS

EXTREMELY WISE.

IF YOU COULD GET ON A

MISSION TRIP TOGETHER WITH

YOUR DAUGHTER, THAT WOULD

BE --

Terry: AND MAKE IT

FUN.

Pat: OH, IT WILL BE.

BUT IT WILL BE SO

CHALLENGING.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS

REAL.

THIS ISN'T RITUAL.

IT'S REAL.

YOU SAY SHE WON'T

PARTICIPATE IN THE RITUAL,

WHO CARES.

Terry: SUE SAYS,

"RECENTLY I FOUND OUT THAT A

FEW CHURCHES IN MY AREA

BELIEVE WITNESSING TO

CHILDREN SCARES THEM.

THEY SAY PHRASES

LIKE, QUOTE,"LET JESUS INTO

YOUR HEART," IS TAKEN

LITERAL.

I WAS FOUR WHEN I WAS

SAVED.

IF THIS WAS ONLY ONE CHURCH,

I MIGHT THINK IT WAS THEM.

BUT WITH MORE, I'M WONDERING

IF THIS IS A NEW DOCTRINE IN

THE CHURCH."

Pat: NO, IT'S NOT A NEW

DOCTRINE IN THE CHURCH.

IF YOU TALK ABOUT JESUS IT

WILL SCARE PEOPLE, SO I

WON'T DO IT -- THAT'S A

COP-OUT.

OF COURSE LITTLE CHILDREN

CAN LEARN ABOUT JESUS.

THEY COME TO THE LORD AT

FOUR, FIVE, SIX YEARS OLD,

AND THEY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT

GOD.

IT'S NOT GOING

TO SCARE

PEOPLE.

IT IS NONSENSE.

Terry: ROSE SAYS, "ACTS

16: 31 SAYS BELIEVE IN JESUS

AND EVERYONE WILL BE SAVED

IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HU YOUR

HUSBAND IS NOT A BELIEVER,

BUT YOU ARE?"

Pat: THERE IS A CONTEXT

WITH EVERYTHING IN THE

BIBLE.

THE JAILER SAID, "SIR, WHAT

MUST WE DO BE TO SAVED."

THE DOORS OF THE PRISON WERE

OPEN.

HE CALLS OUT TO THE APOSTLES

TO HELP ME.

BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST, AND YOU WILL BE

SAVED AND SO WILL YOUR

HOUSEHOLD.

THAT HOUSEHOLD SALVATION IS

NICE TO KNOW, BUT IT ISN'T

NECESSARILY A GENERAL THING

FOR EVERYBODY.

I WANT KEEP THAT IN MIND.

WHAT DOES IT

MEAN?

GOD WILL BRING YOUR LOVED

ONES WITH YOU IF YOU STAND

TRUE WITH THE LORD.

HE WILL BRING YOUR LOVED

ONES WITH YOU.

IF YOU TRUST IN THE LORD

WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, HE

WILL TOUCH THE LOVED ONES

YOU HAVE IN YOUR FAMILY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US

ON THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU NOW

WITH A SONG.

IT IS CHRISTMASTIME.

AND HERE IS DENVER AND THE

MILE-HIGH ORCHESTRA

PERFORMING A VERY FAMILIAR

CHRISTMAS SONG, "THE LITTLE

DRUMMER BOY."

*

PERROMPAROMPOM *
