HERE YOU HAVE UNDERAGED GIRLS

INVOLVED IN SEX TRAFFICKING.

THEY NEED TO BE SAFE AND SECURE.

THAT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU GET

REPORTER: MAJORITY AREN'T

FUNDAMENTALLY, WE ARE SHOWING

ANOTHER LIFE STYLE.

REPORTER: EFREM GRAHAM, CBN

WHEN ASKED HOW PEOPLE WOULD

SPEND THEIR LAST MOMENT, GORDAN,

THE MAJORITY SAID THEY WOULD

SPEND IT WITH FAMILY.

GORDAN: THIS IS A PROPHESY

YOU CAN BELIEVE IN, THE PROMISE

OF GOD, WHILE THE EARTH REMAINS,

COLD AND HEAT, WINTER AND SUMMER

AND DAY PERCENT AND NIGHT SHALL

NOT CEASE.

THAT WAS THE VERSE THAT GOT ME

UP THIS MORNING AND ENJOYED

WATCHING THE DAWN, TERRY?

TERRY: GOOD WAY TO WAKE UP,

I LIKE TO ADD TO THAT, COFFEE IS

ON.

[LAUGHTER].

COMING UP, THE LOST STORY FROM

AUTHOR CHARLES DICKENS, HEAR

WHAT IT IS ABOUT AND HOW IT

SHEDS NEW LIGHT ON DICKEN'S OWN

LIFE.

*

GORDAN: A TIMELESS CHRISTMAS

TALE OF CHARACTERS LIKE SCROOGE,

TINY TIM.

WHAT INSPIRED CHARLES DICKENS TO

WRITE "A CHRISTMAS CAROL" IT

CAME DOWN TO DICKENS REQUEST FOR

CHRISTIANITY.

TODAY?

IT IS CHRISTMAS DAY, OF COURSE.

REPORTER: FROM THE SCREEN TO

THE STAGE.

*

THE TRANSFORMATION OF SCROOGE

FROM MISER TO CHEERFUL GIVER

STRIKES A CORD IN THE HEARTS OF

ADULTS AND CHILDREN.

*

ALL THESE VERSIONS A RESULT OF

CHARLES DICKENS "A CHRISTMAS

CAROL" THE ENGLISH WRITER LOVED

THE HOLIDAY.

HE SAID I WILL HONOR CHRISTMAS

IN MY HEART AND TRY TO KEEP IT

ALL THE YEAR.

MANKIND WAS MY BUSINESS,

COMMON WELFARE WAS MY BUSINESS,

CHARITY, MERCY, AND BENEVOLENCE

ALL MY BUSINESS.

AKRON, OHIO NATIVE EARNED A

PHD AT UNIVERSITY OF ST. ANDREWS

FOR HIS WORK ON DICKENS.

DICKENS USES REAL

CHRISTIANITY A NUMBER OF TIMES.

REAL CHRISTIANITY IS BEING LIKE

JESUS.

DURING HIS RESEARCH, COLLEGE

DISCOVERED DICKENS WAS A

CHRISTIAN AND HIS FAITH IN JESUS

CHRIST SURFACES IN THE THEMES

AND CHARACTERS.

HE READ A LETTER FROM DICKENSES

.

ALL MY SOCIAL ABUSES ARE

DEPARTURES FROM ITS SPIRIT.

ALL MY GOOD PEOPLE ARE HUMBLE,

CHARITABLE, FAITHFUL, FORGIVING.

OVER AND OVER I CLAIM THEM AS

DISCIPLES OF THE FOUNDER OF OUR

RELIGION.

COLLEGE SAYS MARLY'S WARNING

TO SCROOGE REFLECTS THE

IMPORTANCE OF IMITATING CHRIST.

THE TAKING CARE OF HUMANITY,

THINKING OF MY FELLOW MAN, DOING

UNTO OTHERS AS I WOULD HAVE THEM

DO UNTO ME.

FOR DICKENS, THE GOLDEN RULE WAS

ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL.

COLLEGE BELIEVES THE MOST

DEFINITIVE EVIDENCE IS THIS

LITTLE KNOWN WORK WRITTEN IN THE

HEIGHT OF HIS CAREER OVER A

PERIOD OF THREE YEARS.

TITLED, "THE LIFE OUR LORD."

CRITICS ARE RIGHT, IT IS NOT

A FANTASTIC PIECE OF LITERATURE.

IT SHINES A BRIGHT LIGHT ON

DICKENS FAITH.

HE IS THE SOUL EDITOR OF THIS

THING.

COLLEGE CALLS "THE LIFE OUR

LORD" A GOSPEL HARMONY WHERE THE

WRITER INTERWEAVES -- THE LIFE

OF CHRIST FOR THE NEXT

GENERATION, HIS CHILDREN.

MY DEAR CHILDREN, I AM

ANXIOUS THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

SOMETHING ABOUT JESUS CHRIST,

FOR EVERYBODY SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

HIM.

A CHRISTIAN FAMILY AT THE

TIME WOULD HAVE HAD TWO BOOKS IN

THEIR HOME, THE BIBLE AND GOSPEL

HARMONY.

SPIRITUAL FORMATION OF ITS

CHILDREN IS NOTHING DICKENS

WOULD LEAVE TO SOMEONE ELSE.

THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A VERY

IMPORTANT TOOL IN DICKENS FAMILY

FOR RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION

INSTRUCTION IN CHRISTIAN

THINKING.

COLLEGE SAYS VERY FEW PEOPLE

KNOW ABOUT THIS PART OF

DICKENS'S WORK.

LITERARY CRITICS DISMISSED

RELIGION AS UNIMPORTANT AND

SUPERFICIAL.

EDUCATORS FOLLOWED SUIT.

HE PRESENTED HIS DISROTATION AT

ST. ANDREWS.

I WOULD BE SO AUDACIOUS THAT

THIS PERSON WAS A MAN OF FAITH.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN THAT

HOSTILITY, PEOPLE LIKE DARKNESS

BETTER THAN LIGHT.

A HANDFUL OF LITERARY

SCHOLARS HAVE DISCUSSED THE

FAITH OF DICKENS TO SHINE THE

LIGHT MUCH BRIGHTER, COLLEGE

SAYS HE BELIEVES GOD WANTED HIM

TO WRITE THIS BOOK.

IT IS ENTITLED "GOD AND CHARLES

DICKENS, RECOVERING THE

CHRISTIAN VOICE OF A CLASSIC

AUTHOR" A BOOK RELEASED THIS

YEAR THE 200 ANSWER ANNIVERSARY

OF DICKENS'S BOOK.

IT WAS EASY TO GET A

PUBLISHER.

IT IS A GOOD FEELING WHEN YOU

KNOW THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS

INVOLVED.

AND THIS IS NOT YOUR PROJECT.

HE DEDICATES THE BOOK TO HIS

GRANDCHILDREN, MAY YOU EACH FIND

JOY AS DID DICKENS IN OUR

SAVIOR.

MARK MARTIN, SUPERVISOR

SUPERVISOR NEWS, AKRON, OHIO.

GORDAN: THAT IS A STORY YOU

WON'T HEAR ANYWHERE ELSE.

SOME OF THE GREAT AUTHORS, GREAT

LITERATURE OF THE WORLD ALL

PRODUCED BY CHRISTIANS.

WHETHER YOU LOOK AT ENGLISH OR

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE, CHRISTIANS

BEHIND A LOT OF THE GREAT BOOKS.

TERRY: ABSOLUTELY.

UP NEXT A DEVOUT MUSLIM BEGINS

TO HAVE STRANGE DREAMS.

THERE WAS A FIGURE IN THE

BACKGROUND SITTING ON A ROCK.

TERRY: FIND OUT WHO HE SAW

AND HEARD.

THAT IS NEXT.

*

÷

GORDAN: FOR TWO YEARS,

ANTONIO SANTANA LIVED AS A

DEVOUT MUSLIM.

HE PRAYED FIVE TIMES A DAY, READ

THE KORAN AND CHANGED HIS NAME.

HE NEVER FOUND GOD, INSTEAD GOD

FOUND HIM.

EVERY LITTLE BOY NEEDS THE

IMAGE OF HIS FATHER.

THE NEED TO HEAR THAT MAN.

THAT IS WHO MY DAD IS.

THROUGHOUT MY LIFE I GUESS I WAS

SEARCHING FOR THAT FATHER

FIGURE.

ANTONIO SANTANA GREW UP NEVER

KNOWING HIS BIOLOGICAL FATHER.

MY MOM WAS ALWAYS AT WORK AND

STEP DAD GONE.

I DID WHAT I WANTED.

HE HAD LITTLE DIRECTION IN

HIS LIFE BUT MANAGED TO AVOID

THE NEGATIVE INFLUENCES IN HIS

NEIGHBORHOOD.

I PICKED UP A BASKETBALL,

BEING ON THE BASKETBALL COURT

PLAYED A VITAL ROLE IN KEEPING

DRUGS AND GANGS OUT OF MY LIFE.

HE COULDN'T AVOID THEM

FOREVER.

I MADE IT ALL THE WAY TO MY

SENIOR YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL AND

STARTED SMOKING MARIJUANA AND

SKIP CLASS TO GO SMOKE WEEK AND

IT WENT DOWNHILL.

EVENTUALLY HE WAS KICKED OUT

OF HIGH SCHOOL.

THERE WAS NO ONE TO GUIDE

ANTONIO IN HIS DECISIONS,

CERTAINLY NOT HIS OWN FAMILY.

THEY NEVER SAT ME DOWN TO

TELL ME I WAS MESSING MY LIFE

UP.

MAYBE I WOULD HAVE AVOIDED

THINGS IN MY LIFE. I WENT TO

JAIL A NUMBER OF TIMES.

THE LAST THING YOU HEAR IS THE

CLOSE OF THE JAIL CELL.

TRAPPED WITH YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS.

THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING MORE

IN LIFE.

I HAD A VOID IN MY LIFE.

I COULDN'T FILL IT NO MATTER

WHAT DRUG, WHAT GIRL, NOTHING

COULD FILL THE VOID.

IT LED ME FURTHER INTO

DEPRESSION.

I NEEDED A CHANGE IN LIFE.

HE FOUND WORK AT A LOCAL

FACTORY.

IT WAS THERE HE BEGAN TO SEARCH

FOR GOD.

I HAD A FEW FRIENDS THAT

WOULD SMOKE MARIJUANA WITH ME

CLAIMING TO BE MUSLIM.

WHEN I GOT OFF WORK I WENT TO

THE MOSQUE.

I WAS EXCITED BECAUSE I WANTED

TO LEARN ABOUT WHO GOD IS.

THIS LITTLE ARAB MAN WALKED OUT.

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW IT

COULD CHANGE MY LIFE.

I NEEDED A CHANGE IN MY HEART.

I STARTED OFF MY DIFFERENT

JOURNEY OF LIFE.

I STOPPED CUSSING, STOPPED

PRE-MARITAL SEX, I STOPPED

SMOKING MARIJUANA.

I HAD A NEW IDENTITY.

I WAS A MUSLIM.

HE DEVOTED HIMSELF TO ISLAM.

YET SOMETHING WAS MISSING.

I WAS PRAYING FIVE TIMES A

DAY.

EVERY TIME I KNELT DOWN, IT FELT

LIKE I WAS PRAYING TO A BRICK

WALL.

IT MADE ME MORE DEPRESSED.

I AM TRYING TO BE RIGHTEOUS.

I FELT GOD FURTHER AWAY.

HE HAD STRANGE DREAMS.

I DREAMT I WAS SWIMMING IN

THE OCEAN ALL BY MYSELF.

THERE WAS A FIGURE IN THE

BACKGROUND FISHING FOR ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO THAT FIGURE

WAS, I COULDN'T CATEGORIZE HIM

AS JESUS CHRIST.

I HAD AN IMPRESSION IT WAS

JESUS.

I WAS TRYING TO MAKE SENSE.

I COULDN'T EXPLAIN IT.

THE DREAMS CONTINUED.

ONE DAY ON THE STREET I MET A

CHRISTIAN EVANGELIST.

THEY TOLD ME TO READ THIS

VERSE JOHN 14:6.

WHEN I READ IT I WAS STUNNED.

JESUS SAYS I AM THE WAY, THE

TRUTH AND THE LIFE, NO MAN

SHOULD COME TO THE FATHER BUT BY

ME.

I HAD NO REBUT L.

I COULDN'T REFUTE THOSE SAYINGS.

THE EVANGELIST PRAYED FOR

ANTONIO TO FIND THE TRUTH.

OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS HE

STRUGGLED.

I AM TIRED OF PRAYING, GOD

WHERE ARE YOU?

I HEAR A KNOCK ON THE FRONT

DOOR.

IT TURNED OUT TO BE MY UNCLE

RICKY.

HE SAYS THE LORD, YES.

THEN HE WALKS AWAY.

IT LED ME TO LOOK UP THE WORD

"LOVE" IN THE KORAN.

IT WAS BASED ON A STIPULATION.

THEN I LOOKED ROMANS 5:8, GOD

DEMONSTRATES OUR LOVE FOR US

WHILE YET WE ARE STILL SINNERS.

THAT LOVE LED HIS SON TO DIE FOR

ME.

I WAS LIKE WOW, THIS GOD.

HAS TO BE THE TRUE GOD.

ANTONIO FOUND WHAT HE HAD

BEEN SEEKING.

I BELIEVED IN THE JESUS OF

THE BIBLE.

I HAD A SENSE OF PEACE.

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS WHATEVER

I AM HEADED, GOD HAS MY BACK.

I BECAME SO ENRAPTURED STUDYING

GOD.

I WANTED TO TELL EVERYBODY ABOUT

JESUS.

HE ENROLLED IN THE BIBLE

INSTITUTE TO LEARN MORE.

I WANT TO SERVE IN THE CHURCH

FULL TIME TO HELP BROKEN

FAMILIES AND MINISTER TO A

FATHERLESS GENERATION.

TO BE A BIG BROTHER TO THE

BROTHERLESS.

THE SEARCH FOR MY FATHER

DEFINITELY WAS A VOID.

SCRIPTURE IS TRUE, GOD ADOPTS US

INTO HIS FAMILY AND HE BECOMES

OUR FATHER.

GORDAN: STORY OF CHRISTMAS,

CHRIST COMES TO US.

WORD BECOMES FLESH AND DWELLS

AMONG US.

WORD CAN BECOME FLESH IN YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SEEK FOR

IT.

BE LIKE ANTONIO.

I AM LOOKING FOR TRUTH.

WHEN YOU START PUTTING THAT

QUESTION WITH A WHO IN FRONT OF

IT.

WHO IS TRUE?

THEN YOU END UP WITH JESUS

BECAUSE HE SAYS I AM THE WAY,

THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.

NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT

BY ME.

ALL THE OTHER RELIGIONS OF THE

WORD, BUDDHISM, HINDUISM,

JANISM, ISLAM, ALL OF THEM ARE

ABOUT HOW CAN YOU PERFECT

YOURSELF WHERE YOU ARE GOOD

ENOUGH TO MAKE IT?

WHERE YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO BE

ENLIGHTENED OR GOOD ENOUGH TO

MAKE IT TO HEAVEN?

ONLY CHRISTIANITY DOES GOD COME

AND SAY I'LL BE YOUR SALVATION.

I'LL DEMONSTRATE MY LOVE TO YOU

AND FOR YOU BY DYING FOR YOU.

WHEN YOU WEREN'T EVEN LOOKING

FOR IT.

YOU WERE STILL A SINNER HE SAYS

I'LL DIE FOR YOU, I WANT YOU TO

BE WITH ME FOR ALL ETERNITY.

I WANT TO COME AND SAVE THE

WORLD.

THAT IS THE MESSAGE FOR GOD SO

LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS

ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHO IS

EVER BELIEVES IN HIM WOULD NOT

PERISHES BUT HAVE EVER LASTING

LIFE.

TODAY YOU CAN BE A WHO SO EVER.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS DO WHAT

ANTONIO DID, I WANT TO FIND THE

TRUTH.

I WANT TO KNOW AND HERE IS A

PRAYER FOR YOU.

JESUS, IF THIS IS REAL, IF YOU

REALLY CAME, IF YOU REALLY DIED

FOR ME, COULD YOU SHOW ME?

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

YOU'LL FIND YOU ARE NOT PRAYING

INTO SOME BRICK WALL.

YOU ARE PRAYING TO SOMEBODY

LOOKING FOR YOU, FISHING FOR YOU

WHO WANTS YOU TO BE WITH HIM FOR

ALL ETERNITY.

AND ALL HE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR

YOU TO SAY IS, WILL YOU COME?

WILL YOU COME INTO MY HEART?

WILL YOU FORGIVE ME, SET ME

FREE?

IF YOU DO THAT WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, HE'LL ANSWER AND HE'LL

COME.

NOW, IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF YOU

WANT THIS TO BE A SPECIAL

CHRISTMAS WHERE JESUS IS BORN

INTO OUR HEART, ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS PRAY WITH ME.

HE'LL ANSWER, HE'LL MAKE YOU

KNEW.

HE'LL NEVER LEAVE YOU, NEVER

FORSAKE YOU, A UNIQUE PLAN JUST

FOR YOU IF YOU JUST OPEN YOUR

HEART TO HIM.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS, THAT'S RIGHT, SAY HIS

NAME OUT LOUD, JESUS, I COME TO

YOU AND I ASK RIGHT NOW THAT YOU

WOULD COME INTO MY HEART THAT

YOU WOULD BE REAL TO ME.

THAT YOU WOULD BE MY SAVIOR, MY

REDEEMER, JESUS, RIGHT NOW, I

ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FOR ALL THE

THINGS I HAVE DONE WRONG.

I WANT TO TURN FROM ALL OF IT

AND TURN TO YOU.

SO JESUS, HEAR MY PRAYER,

FORGIVE ME, MAKE ME NEW, FOR I

ASK IT, IN JESUS' NAME AMEN.

FATHER, FOR THOSE THAT PRAYED, I

ASK FOR A BAPTISM IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOU SURROUND THEM

WITH THE LOVE THAT NEVER PASSES

AWAY.

AND BE WITH THEM AND ASSURE THEM

THAT YOU HAVE THEIR FUTURE.

DO IT NOW, LORD, FOR I ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME AMEN.

BIBLES SAYS IF YOU'LL BELIEVE IN

YOUR HEART AND CONFESS WITH YOUR

MOUTH YOU SHALL BE SAVED.

I WANT YOU TO DO JUST THAT.

SAY I JUST ASKED JESUS INTO MY

HEART, TOLL FREE NUMBER,

GORDAN: IT CAN BE TOUGH FOR

ANYONE TO START A NEW LIFE IN A

NEW TOWN EVEN TOUGHER IN A NEW

COUNTRY.

THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED TO THE

DUTCH COUPLE IN THE NEXT STORY.

THEY MOVED TO ISRAEL.

THE TRANSITION MUCH MORE

DIFFICULT THAN THEY EVER

EXPECTED.

EARMA AND ANDRUS LEFT BEHIND

A COMFORTABLE LIFE IN HOLLAND SO

THEY COULD RETURN TO THEIR

HOMELAND IN ISRAEL.

WHEN WE GOT BACK I WAS HOME

SICK FOR ISRAEL.

WE STARTED PRAYING ABOUT IT.

WE KNEW IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT

FINANCIALLY.

WE KEPT FINDING VERSES IN THE

BIBLE ABOUT THE JEWS COMING BACK

TO ISRAEL.

HE IS A FULL TIME NURSE WHILE

EARMA RUNS A CLINIC.

THE CALL TO STAY IN ISRAEL WAS

STRONG EVEN THOUGH EARMA DIDN'T

KNOW SHE WAS JEWISH UNTIL SHE

WAS SEVEN.

THOSE THAT SURVIVED THE

HOLOCAUST WERE AFRAID.

WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS JEWISH, I

THOUGHT IT WAS SPECIAL.

IT IS A GREAT PRIVILEGE TO LIVE

HERE AFTER WE SPENT SEVERAL

GENERATIONS AWAY FROM OUR

HOMELAND.

THEY NEEDED EARMA'S BUSINESS

TO SUCCEED.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE EQUIPMENT.

I THOUGHT ABOUT CLOSES THE

BUSINESS.

WHEN GOD WANTS YOU TO MOVE

FORWARD, YOU CAN'T VEER TO THE

LEFT OR RIGHT.

SOME DAYS WHEN THEY ONLY HAD

ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY FOOD FOR

CHILDREN, THEY FASTED.

THEY BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST AND

ARE PART OF A MESSIANIC

CONGREGATION.

CBN ISRAEL WORKS WITH THAT

CONGREGATION.

WE IMMEDIATELY TOOK THE FAMILY

FOOD AND NEW CLOTHES.

IT WAS WONDERFUL TO HAVE FOOD

FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY.

AFTER I PRAYED ABOUT NEEDING NEW

SHOES, YOU GAVE US NEW SHOES.

IT IS GOOD TO KNOW CHRISTIANS

FROM ABROAD CARE ABOUT US AND

GIVE TO THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

I KNOW THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU

FOR THAT.

WE KNEW HER OFFICE NEEDED NEW

WORK, WE STOCKED HER OFFICE WITH

PRODUCTS AND GAVE HER THE

EQUIPMENT SHE NEEDS TO DO HER

JOB WELL.

IT IS A BIG BLESSING.

MY ROOM IS SO BEAUTIFUL.

NOW MY CLIENTS ARE VERY

COMFORTABLE.

IT IS EASY TO SHARE WITH THEM

ABOUT JESUS. YOUR GIFTS

HAVE BEEN A HUGE BLESSING.

THEY ARE A CONFIRMATION TO THE

LORD WE ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK.

MANY JEWISH IMMIGRANT

FAMILIES IN NEED HERE IN ISRAEL.

YEAR AFTER AN INJURY NEARLY

DERAILED HIS CAREER.

YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE TO GET

UP.

PLUS...

IT IS ONE OF THE GREATEST

GIFTS.

CHRISTIAN MEN.

MONDAY ON "700 CLUB."

TERRY: THE WEEK BEFORE

CHRISTMAS IS THE BUSIEST TIME OF

THE YEAR FOR THE POST OFFICE.

NO WONDER WHY.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO GET THOSE

1.6 BILLION CHRISTMAS CARDS

DELIVERED BEFORE THE BIG DAY.

HARD TO BELIEVE.

AUTHOR ACE COLLINS TOLD KRISTI

WATTS ABOUT THE VERY FIRST CARD

AND THE REASONS.

KRISTI: OKAY, ACE, THE ONE

THING I ABSOLUTELY IS GOING TO

MY MAILBOX AND GETTING A

CHRISTMAS CARD.

FEWER PEOPLE SEND THEM.

IT MEANS SOMETHING.

IT CAN MEAN SOMETHING FAR MORE,

TOO, IF YOU WRITE SOMETHING IN

IT, LIKE A THANK YOU TO THAT

PERSON FOR SOME WAY THEY BLESSED

YOU, IT WILL ENCOURAGE THEM TO

CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU AND BLESS

OTHERS, THEY MADE AN IMPACT THAT

YEAR.

CHRISTMAS CARDS CAN HAVE A

TREMENDOUS IMPACT WHEN USED AS

ALSO THANK YOU CARDS FOR A

SPIRITUAL GIFT.

IT IS SPECIAL.

THAT IS WHAT HENRY COAL THOUGHT

OF WHEN HE INVENTED THE CAR IN

1843.

HE HAD TOO MANY LETTERS SO HE

DEVISED A

THREE-FOLD

CARD AND

WRITE A

VERSE AND

PUT THIS

BEAUTIFUL

PAINTING OF THIS

ENGLISH FAMILY AROUND THE TABLE.

WHEN YOU CLOSE THE CARD, IT HAD

A PICTURE OF PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T

HAVE MUCH AT CHRISTMAS

ENCOURAGING THOSE TO SHARE

BLESSINGS WITH OTHERS DURING THE

CHRISTMAS SEASON.

WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY FOR

CHRISTMAS CARDS TO KICK OFF.

WE DON'T NEED TO LOSE THIS

TRADITION.

KRISTI: I AM GOING TO SEND

THEM OUT MYSELF, WHY?

BECAUSE YOU GAVE THEM A WHOLE

NEW MEANING.

MERRY CHRISTMAS.

KRISTI: MERRY CHRISTMAS BACK

AT YOU.

TERRY: "STORIES BEHIND THE

GREAT TRADITIONS OF CHRISTMAS"

IT IS A LOT OF FUN, I THINK YOUR

FAMILY WOULD ENJOY.

READ ONE OF THESE OCCASIONALLY.

SO MUCH SPIRITUAL MEANING.

WE DON'T KNOW THE ORIGIN.

WHY DO WE HAVE STOCKINGS HUNG

BY THE FIRE?

TERRY: TWELVE DAYS OF

CHRISTMAS SONG, ALL THE

SPIRITUAL IMPLICATIONS.

NEED TO GET THE BOOK.

GORDAN: WE USED TO RING

BELLS

ON CHRISTMAS

MORNING.

WE DON'T DO THAT

ANYMORE.

TERRY: A LOT OF NOISE,

[LAUGHTER].

ANSWER SOME E-MAILS.

I DREAMED I SAW THIS BRIGHT

LIGHT OF A SAINT OUTLINE OF THIS

MAN.

THIS MAN SPOKE AND I KNEW IT WAS

GOD.

HE TOLD ME TO READ MY BIBLE.

I FELT NOTHING BE CALMENS AND

CALMNESS AND NO WORRIES CAN GOD

APPEAR IN DREAMS?

GORDAN: YES.

OF COURSE, SOLOMAN GOES OFF TO

OFFER SACRIFICE.

GOD APPEARS TO HIM IN A DREAM,

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU, SOLOMAN.

LORD, I NEED WISDOM.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GOVERN THESE

PEOPLE.

I NEED WISDOM.

GOD LOVED THAT.

I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN WHAT

DID GOD TELL YOU TO READ OR JUST

A GENERAL INSTRUCTION?

IF IT WAS, PRAY AND ASK HIM,

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SHOW ME

TODAY?

UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN JESUS

PROMISED THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD,

HOLY SPIRIT WOULD LEAD YOU INTO

ALL TRUTH, IT IS THAT KIND OF

UNDERSTANDING AND PRAY FOR THAT

ILLUMINATION WHEN YOU READ THE

BIBLE.

IT WILL TAKE YOU ON A GREAT

JOURNEY, THE HOLY SPIRIT BECOMES

YOUR TEACHER AS YOU READ THROUGH

THE BIBLE.

TRY THAT.

SEE IF IT WORKS.

TERRY: BILLY ASKS IS THERE A

COMPLETE BOOK OF GOSPEL OF

THOMAS AND LED BY THE HOLY

SPIRIT?

GORDAN: IT IS AN AGNOSTIC

VERSION, MOST COMPLETE VERSION

DISCOVERED IN A BUNCH OF SCROLLS

HIDDEN IN THE DESERT, YEAR WAS

1943 IN A TOWN IN EGYPT.

THE REASON THESE MANUSCRIPTS

WERE HIDDEN AWAY, THEY WEREN'T

CONSIDERED ORTHODOX AND WEREN'T

INCLUDED IN THE CANNON.

IN EARLY CHRISTIANITY, OR NAN

WRITES ABOUT THE GOSPEL OF

THOMAS NOT BEING ACCEPTED BY THE

CHURCHES, NO. 1 IT WASN'T

WRITTEN BY THOMAS.

NO. 2, IT WAS WELL PASSED 100

A.D. THEREFORE THE PERSON

WRITING IT WASN'T AN EYEWITNESS

TO THE EVENTS.

WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THERE WERE

REASONS THE CHURCH ESTABLISHED

THE CANNON OF THE BIBLE AND TEXT

OMITTED WERE FOR VERY GOOD

REASONS.

THEY COULDN'T AUTHENTICATE THEM

AS EYEWITNESSES.

THEY COULDN'T AUTHENTICATE THEM

AS AUTHORITIES, APOSTLES IN THE

CHURCH.

THEREFORE THEY WERE EXCLUDED.

WE SHOULDN'T BE ADDING THEM BACK

IN BECAUSE SOMEBODY FINDS A

SCROLL IN THE DESERT IN 1945.

TERRY: GOOD ANSWER.

YOU PASSED.

[LAUGHTER].

GORDAN: I GET AN A, YEA!

TERRY: I KNEW YOU WERE

HOPING.

CARLOS SAYS IS IT OKAY TO BE

REMARRIED?

GORDAN: IT IS UNTIL DEATH DO

YOU PART.

YOU ARE FREE TO BE MARRIED, EVEN

WITH THE WORDS OF JESUS

STRICTEST IN TERMS OF

REMARRIAGE.

DEATH IS YES, YOU CAN REMARRY,

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SPEND YOUR

LIFE ALONE.

TERRY: TIFFANY SAYS SOME

CHRISTIANS SAY GOD HAS GIVEN US

CREATIVE POWER WITH OUR WORDS.

CAN WE SPEAK SOMETHING INTO

EXISTENCE?

GORDAN: TIFFANY, YOU HAVE TO

BE CAREFUL WITH THIS.

I'LL REPEAT THIS STORY, IT

ILLUSTRATES THE PROBLEM.

THERE WAS A TRIBE WHO LIVED ON

AN ISLAND IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN

DURING WORLD WAR II, MILITARY

PLANES WOULD FLY IN AND DELIVER

THEM SUPPLIES.

THEY GOT IT INTO THEIR HEADS IF

THEY LINED UP ON EITHER SIDE OF

THE RUNWAY, A PLANE WOULD

APPEAR.

UNFORTUNATELY WHEN THE WORLD WAR

II WAS OVER THE PLANES STOPPED.

THEY STILL GATHERED AT THE

RUNWAY EXPECTING PLANES TO LAND

AND WOULDN'T LAND.

YOU CAN GO SO FAR WITH THIS AND

GET INTO HYPERFAITH REALMS, NAME

IT AND CLAIM IT REALMS THAT

AREN'T REAL.

INSTEAD OF BEING REAL FAITH, YOU

KNOW AND BELIEVE AND YOU SPEAK,

BELIEVE IN MY HEART, THEREFORE I

SPOKE.

YOU ARE JUST EXPRESSING A WISH.

AT THE SAME TIME, WORDS CAN BE

VERY DESTRUCTIVE.

WORDS ARE VERY POWERFUL.

YOU HAVE THE POWER OF LIFE AND

DEATH IN YOUR TONGUE.

THAT IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

SPEAK LIFE OVER YOURSELF.

SPEAK LIFE OVER YOUR CHILDREN.

DON'T PROPHECY DOOM OVER THEM.

HERE IS AN EXERCISE.

START SAYING I AM WEAK AND

POWERLESS, SAY IT TEN TIMES, I

CAN'T -- PICK AN OBJECT TO

WEIGHS SOMETHING NEAR YOU, A

CHAIR OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

I AM WEAK AND POWERLESS AND

CAN'T LIFT THIS CHAIR, IF YOU

SAY IT 10 TIMES.

NOW TURN IT AROUND, I CAN DO ALL

THINGS THROUGH CHRIST THAT

STRENGTHENS ME, THEN LIFT THE

SAME CHAIR AND SEE THE

DIFFERENCE.

WORDS ARE VERY POWERFUL.

THEY ARE VERY MEANINGFUL.

DO YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CREATE

AIRPLANES FULL OF SUPPLIES OUT

OF THIN AIR?

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE FOR

THIS PROGRAM. WE LEAVE YOU WITH
