Rose Hackenberg used drugs and alcohol to numb the pain until she watched The 700 Club. Plus see how two little girls were provided with a home after their mother died. Read Transcript


A SMALL-TOWN GIRL WITH

BIG DREAMS GETS AN OFFER SHE

CAN'T REFUSE.

MAKE MORE MONEY IN A

SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

HER LIFE AS A

PROSTITUTE.

I'M DYING INSIDE.

AND HOW SHE ESCAPED ON

TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THIS IS OUR FIRST PROGRAM IN

2013.

Terry: HARD TO

BELIEVE.

Pat: MY WORD.

HOW TIME DOES FLY.

ANYHOW, THEY HAD ALL OF THAT

NONSENSE ABOUT THE FISCAL

CLIFF.

I'LL GIVE YOU MY TAKE ON

THAT IN A LITTLE WHILE.

WE HAVE SOME ANALYSIS OF

WHERE WE ARE, BUT JUST REST

ASSURED THE FOR EVERYBODY,

AND I USE THAT TERM

ADVICEABLY -- FOR EVERYBODY,

YOUR TAXES ARE GOING UP.

THAT IS JUST PART OF THE

DEAL THAT CONGRESS -- A

BUNCH OF SLEEP-DEPRIVED,

OXYGENARIANS, DETERMINED.

Terry: AND THE DEFICITS

ARE ALSO GOING TO GO UP IN

THE YEAR AHEAD.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE STORY

FOR US.

Reporter: THE FISCAL

CLIFF FIGHT IS OVER, FOR NOW

AT LEAST.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS

RELUCTANTLY APPROVED A BILL

THAT PREVENTS MASSIVE TAX

HIKES FROM HITTING NEARLY

EVERY AMERICAN.

HANDING PRESIDENT OBAMA THE

TAX INCREASES ON THE RICH HE

CAMPAIGNED ON.

President Obama: I WILL

SIGN A LAW THAT RAISES TAXES

ON THE 2% OF THE AMERICANS.

Reporter: BUT WHILE THE

VOTE PREVENTS MAJOR TAX

INCREASES FOR MOST

AMERICANS, REPUBLICANS SAY

IT LEAVES MANY ISSUES

UNADDRESSED, LIKE

WASHINGTON'S ON GOING

SPENDING SPREE.

THERE ARE NO SPENDING

CUTS.

WE'RE ADDING $4 BILLION A

DAY TO THE DEBT, AND WE FEEL

LIKE THE SENATE BILL

FAILEDLY MISERABLY.

Reporter: AND TAXES

WILL GO UP BY 2% FOR A

MAJORITY OF THE AMERICANS.

BECAUSE IT ALLOW THE PAYROLL

TAX DEDUCTION TO EXPIRE.

A WA WASHINGTON GROUP

ESTIMATES THAT 77% OF

HOUSEHOLDS WILL PAY THOSE

EXTRA TAXES IN 2013.

SOCIAL SECURITY TAX IS

NOW GOING UP TO THE

STATUTORY RATE.

WE ASSUME EVERYBODY'S

PAYROLL IS GOING TO GO UP

ABOUT ANOTHER 2% ON THEIR

W-2.

FOR ME, THAT'S THE CABLE

BILL.

IT IS GOING OUT TO EAT ONCE

A WEEK.

IT IS REAL MONEY GOING OUT

THE WINDOW.

Reporter: THE BILL ALSO

DOES NOTHING TO INCREASE THE

SO-CALLED DEBT CEILING.

IN TWO MONTHS, THE

GOVERNMENT WILL REACH ITS

LIMIT ON BORROWING UNLESS

CONGRESS STEPS IN.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS HE

HOPES THEY CAN REACH A

COMPROMISE ON THAT DEAL

WITHOUT COMING DOWN TO THE

WIRE.

President Obama: THE

ONE THING I THINK, HOPEFULLY

IN THE NEW YEAR, WE'LL FOCUS

ON IS SEEING IF WE CAN PUT A

PACKAGE LIKE THIS TOGETHER

WITH A LITTLE LESS DRAMA,

AND NOT SCARE THE HECK OUT

OF THE FOLKS QUITE AS MUCH.

Reporter: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: SOONER OR LATER,

FOLKS HAVE GOT TO GET SCARED

BECAUSE WHAT IS HAPPENING IS

A LOOMING FINANCIAL

DISASTER.

IT IS JUST A QUESTION OF

KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE

ROAD.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE AN

INDEPTH LOOK AT THAT FISCAL

CLIFF DEAL IN JUST A FEW

MINUTES.

BUT, FIRST, LEE WEBB HAS

SOME INTERESTING DETAILS ON

THIS CONGRESSIONAL

COMPROMISE.

HERE IS LEE.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

MOST AMERICANS WILL SEE

THEIR TAXES GO UP TO HELP

PAY FOR SOCIAL

SECURITY,

BUT

SOME INDUSTRIES ARE GETTING

BIG BREAKS IN THIS DEAL.

ABC NEWS REPORTING THAT THE

PROVISIONS WERE JUST

EXTENDED FROM PAST YEARS,

BUT IN LIGHT OF AMERICA'S

SKYROCKETING DEBT, THEY'RE

RAISING CONCERNS.

FOR EXAMPLE, $430 MILLION IN

TAX BREAKS TO CONVINCE

HOLLYWOOD TO FILM AND

PRODUCE MOVIES HERE IN THE

U.S.

AND $70 MILLION FOR NASCAR,

ONE OF THE BIGGEST MONEY

MAKERS IN ALL OF SPORTS.

AND RUM MAKERS IN PUERTO

RICAN AND THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

WILL GET $2 MILLION IN

BREAKS.

AND ALGAE MAKERS WILL GET

CUTS.

THE ADOPTION TAX CREDIT IS

GONE, PAT, AND IT EXPIRED ON

DECEMBER 31ST.

Pat: CAN YOU IMAGINE,

WE'RE GOING TO SPEND

$400 MILLION OR $500 MILLION

ON POND SCUM.

YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT A

CRISIS, AND THOSE GUYS IN

WASHINGTON -- WELL, WE'LL

TALK MORE ABOUT IT, BUT THEY

JUST AREN'T FACING REALITY.

LEE?

Lee: FINANCIAL MARKETS

IN THE U.S. AND AROUND THE

WORLD, PAT, ARE CHEERING

THIS FISCAL CLIFF DEAL.

STOCKS SHOT UP IN ASIA AND

EUROPE, AND THE U.S. MARKET

IS FOLLOWING UP ON ITS BIG

RALLY THAT BEGAN ON MONDAY.

INVESTORS

HAD

BEEN CONCERNED

WHETHER WASHINGTON COULD

REACH AN AGREEMENT.

ANALYSTS SAY THE MARKETS

HOPED FOR A BETTER PLAN, BUT

THEY SAY IT IS BETTER THAN

NOTHING AT ALL.

THEY PREDICTED THE U.S.

COULD FALL BACK INTO A

RECESSION IF A DEAL WAS NOT

REACHED.

AND OIL WAS UP, AND GOLD AND

SILVER HAD A SMALL INCREASE,

BUT NOT EVERYTHING IS DOING

BETTER.

SOME CURRENCIES HAVE BEEN

DROPPING, LIKE THE JAPANESE

YEN.

IT HAS FALLEN TO ITS LOWEST

LEVEL SINCE JULY OF 2010.

AMERICANS ARE WORRIED ABOUT

OUR COUNTRY'S FUTURE.

A NEW SURVEY FROM GALLOP AND

"U.S.A. TODAY" FIND THAT 50%

BELIEVE THE COUNTRY'S BEST

YEARS ARE BEHIND US.

AND MORE THAN THREE OUT OF

FOUR SAY POLITICS IN

WASHINGTON IS CAUSING

SERIOUS HARM TO THE

COUNTRY.

AMERICANS STILL HAVE SERIOUS

RESERVATIONS ABOUT

OBAMACARE.

FOUR IN 10 SAY IT WILL MAKE

THINGS WORSE, AND THREE IN

10 SAY IT WILL MAKE THINGS

BETTER.

ONLY THREE PERCENT SAY IT

WILL MAKE THINGS BETTER.

21% SAY IT WILL MAKE THINGS

A LOT WORSE.

THE STATE OF TEXAS HAS ENDED

PUBLIC FUNDING FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD AND OTHER GROUPS

THAT SUPPORT ABORTION.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SOUGHT A

TEMPORARY INJUNCTION TO KEEP

IT FROM GOING INTO EFFECT ON

JANUARY 1st.

ON MONDAY, THOUGH, A TEXAS

DISTRICT JUDGE DENIED THAT

BID.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SAYS THE

RULE PREVENTS POOR WOMEN

FROM GETTING THE HEALTH CARE

THEY NEED.

TEXAS OFFICIALS SAY WOMEN

CAN GET HELP AR FROM A

STATE CLINIC THAT REFERS

WOMEN TO DOCTORS AND CLINICS

THAT DO NOT REPRESENT

ABORTION.

Pat: THE AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE

IS BRINGING TWO MAJOR

LAWSUITS AGAINST PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

IT IS ESSENTIALLY FOR

FRAUD.

THEY HAVE TRIPLE-BILLED THE

FEDERAL FOR PROCEDURES THEY

CLAIMED THEY PERFORMED,

WHICH THEY DIDN'T, AT LEAST

THAT IS THE ALLEGATION.

AND THERE IS A MAJOR SUIT IN

CALIFORNIA THAT HAS SURVIVED

A NUMBER OF PROCEDURAL

CHALLENGES, WHERE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD TRIED TO GET IT

DISMISSED.

AND IN TEXAS, IT IS A

SMALLER CASE, BUT IT IS THE

SAME SORT OF THING.

THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD

AFFILIATES, ACCORDING TO THE

LAWSUIT, HAVE BEEN RIPPING

OFF THE PUBLIC.

AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

TRIPLE DAMAGES.

SO IT'S A HUGE, HUGE KNIFE

OVER THEIR HEAD.

AND THIS ACTION BY THE

SUPREME COURT OF TEXAS IS

JUST ONE MORE THING.

WHY SHOULD ANYBODY THINK

THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD

SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO DIP

INTO THE PUBLIC TREASURY.

NO WAY.

BUT THEY'RE CLAIMING IT

DOES, AND AT THE FEDERAL

LEVEL, AND THEY'VE BEEN

UPHELD IN THAT CLAIM.

LEE?

Lee: SOME NEW LAWS

WORTH NOTING IN THIS NEW

YEAR.

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE WENT INTO

EFFECT IN MAINE AND

MARYLAND.

COMPUTER-DRIVEN CARS ARE

ALLOWED NOW IN CALIFORNIA,

BUT A HUMAN HAS TO BE IN A

VEHICLE.

AND DRIVERS IN THAT STATE NO

LONGER HAVE TO HAVE A HARD

COPY OF THEIR AUTO

INSURANCE.

ALL THEY NEED IS A COPY ON

THEIR SMARTPHONE.

CONCORDE, MASSACHUSETTS, HAS

OUTLAWED PLASTIC BOTTLES.

AND IN THE TOWN OF

WELLINGTON, KANSAS, PEOPLE

ARE RESTRICTED FROM OWNING

MORE THAN FOUR CATS.

THE TALIBAN IS COMPARING THE

U.S. WITHDRAWAL OF TROOPS

FROM AFGHANISTAN TO

AMERICA'S PULLOUT FROM

VIETNAM.

THE MILITANT GROUP SAID IN A

STATEMENT THAT THE AMERICAN

GROUP WANTS TO, QUOTE,"FLEE,

JUST AS THEY TURNED TAIL AND

RAN FROM VIETNAM."

THE U.S. AND NATO TROOPS ARE

SCHEDULED TO PULL OUT BY THE

END OF 2014.

PAT?

Pat: WELL, YOU KNOW,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LIKE

IT OR NOT, WE ARE THE MAJOR

POWER ON THE EARTH, AND WE

HAVE TO ASSERT OURSELVES AND

TAKE OUR PROPER ROLE, AS THE

ONE WHO IS THE ARBITER OF

JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

THROUGHOUT THE EARTH, AND IT

IS AN IMPORTANT ROLE.

AT THE SAME TIME, WE'VE GOT

TROOPS IN GERMANY, WE'VE GOT

TROOPS IN KOREA.

WE HAVE TROOPS ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

AND THE TIME HAS COME TO

SAY, LOOK, WE CAN'T AFFORD

IT.

WE CAN'T AFFORD TO MAINTAIN

SEMI WAR-TIME CONDITIONS ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

WE JUST CAN'T AFFORD IT.

AND ESPECIALLY WITH NATO AND

THE EUROPEAN NATIONS.

THE IDEA IS, WHY SHOULD THE

UNITED STATES KEEP TROOPS IN

GERMANY TO DEFEND GERMANY

AGAINST AN ATTACK BY

RUSSIA?

IT MAKES NO SENSE.

AND SOONER OR LATER WE'VE

GOT TO BLOW THE WHISTLE AND

SAY TIMEOUT.

IT'S ALL OVER.

COME ON HOME, GUYS, AND

WE'RE GOING TO SHUT THAT

AREA DOWN.

AND IT ISN'T A RETREAT.

IT IS JUST INTELLIGENT MONEY

MANAGEMENT.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, AS YOU KNOW,

ISRAEL

OFTEN

FINDS ITSELF

ALONE WHEN IT COMES TO

THE

INTERNATIONAL ARENA.

ONE GROUP

HOPES TO CHANGE

THAT, THOUGH, AND CHRIS

MITCHELL HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: RECENTLY,

PRO-ISRAEL LAWMAKERS FROM

AROUND THE WORLD GATHERED IN

JERUSALEM.

THEY CAME TO LAND

LEGISLATIVE SUPPORT FOR

ISRAEL.

WHAT WE ARE DOING IS

ACTUALLY SOMETHING THAT

NOBODY ELSE HAS DONE BEFORE,

TO FORM THIS INTERNATIONAL

NETWORK OF MORE THAN 500

MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT AROUND

THE WORLD TO SUPPORT ISRAEL

AND TO SPEAK WITH ONE

VOICE.

FOR US TO PROVIDE THIS KIND

OF FORUM, WHERE YOU HAVE

THIS INTERNATIONAL GROUP, A

MINI U.N., IF YOU WILL, THAT

ARE ENCOURAGING ISRAEL, I

THINK IS VITALLY IMPORTANT

FOR ISRAEL'S SPIRIT, TO MAKE

THE TOUGH DECISIONS THEY

HAVE TO MAKE.

WHEN YOU SEE THAT PEOPLE

IN MANY COUNTRIES, LIKE

SOUTH AFRICA, DIFFERENT

COUNTRIES OF EUROPE, THE

UNITED STATES AND CANADA --

MANY COUNTRIES -- WE ARE

WORKING TOGETHER TOWARDS THE

SAME GOAL.

THAT IS A STRENGTH TO FIGHT

THAT IS NECESSARY IN THESE

DIFFICULT TIMES.

Reporter: IT HAD

PRACTICAL RESULTS.

KENNETH MASHOE STOPPED

LEGISLATION THAT WOULD

RESTRICT ISRAELI EXPORTS TO

SOUTH AFRICA.

OUR FRIENDS IN ISRAEL WHO

ARE SUPPORTING SOUTH AFRICA

CAN GO AHEAD, AND WE ASSURE

THEM WE WILL NOT HAVE A LAW

THAT WILL ATTACK ISRAEL IN

THE SOUTH AFRICAN

PARLIAMENT.

I THINK, SINCERELY, THERE

HAS NEVER BEEN A MORE

CRITICAL TIME IN MY LIFETIME

TO STAND WITH ISRAEL THAN

RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: HE SAYS

ISRAEL SITS ON THE FRONT

LINES OF THE WORLDWIDE

BATTLE WITH ISLAMIC JIHAD.

AND FACING A NUCLEAR

ISLAM, THAT ISRAEL

UNFORTUNATELY FACES, IS ONE

OF THE MOST VITAL ISSUES IN

THE WORLD.

AMERICA MUST STAND WITH

ISRAEL.

PEOPLE MORE AND MORE IN THE

CONGRESS ARE UNDERSTANDING

THAT THE PEACE OF THE ENTIRE

WORLD RIGHT NOW IS LARGELY

PREDICATED ON WHAT HAPPENS

TO ISRAEL.

Reporter: DURING THE

CONFERENCE, THE ISRAEL

ALLIES FOUNDATION RELEASED A

DECLARATION SUPPORTING AN

UNDIVIDED JERUSALEM.

STATING IRAN REPRESENTS A

CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO

THE EXISTENCE TO THE STATE

OF ISRAEL.

SO FAR 20 PARLIAMENTARIAN

GALLERIES MEET AROUND THE

WORLD WITH MORE TO COME.

IT IS VOICING SUPPORT FOR

ISRAEL WITH POLITICAL

ACTION.

WITH THIS, WE ARE

LOCATING COMMUNITIES OF

BELIEVERS THAT STAY TO THE

BIBLE AND ARE CLOSE TO

ISRAEL AND SUPPORT THEM.

AND WE ARE GOING TO THIS

SPIRIT EVENT AND TO THE

POLITICAL REPRESENTATIVES

HERE AND IN AFRICA.

IT IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

IT GROWS AND GROWS AND

GROWS.

AND REALLY BELIEVE IT IS A

REAL MOVEMENT BEHIND IT.

IT IS NOT JUST A POLITICAL

THING.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Lee: AND, OF COURSE, WE

WILL BE KEEPING AN EYE ON

THAT STORY.

IT TURNS OUT THAT SUGAR CAN

ACTUALLY AFFECT THE SIGNALS

YOUR BRAIN SENDS TO YOUR

BODY.

SCIENTISTS USED IMAGING

TESTS TO SHOW THAT FRUCTOSE

CAN TRIGGER BRAIN CHANGES

THAT MAY LEAD TO

OVEREATING.

FRUC TOEFRUCTOSE IS A SUGAR

COMMONLY FOUND IN THE

AMERICAN DIET.

AFTER DRINKING A FRUCTOSE

BEVERAGE, THE BRAIN DID NOT

REGISTER THE FEELING OF

BEING FUEL.

AFTER REGISTERING GLUCOSE,

IT DID.

A THIRD OF U.S. CHILDREN AND

TEENS, AND MORE THAN

TWO-THIRDS OF ADULTS ARE

OBESE OR OVERWEIGHT.

Pat: I'VE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT THE DANGERS OF HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP THAT IS

ADDED TO EVERYTHING, AND

SOME EXPERTS THAT LAURIE

FOUND SAID, NO, NO, NO,

SUGAR IS SUGAR IS SUGAR.

AND ONE IS NO DIFFERENT THAN

THE OTHER.

BUT I THINK THAT HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS

DEADLY.

THEY JUST HAVEN'T GOTTEN ALL

OF THE FACTS YET.

BUT THIS IS ONE STUDY THAT

INDICATES THAT IT MAY BE

PLAYING A ROLE IN THE

OBESITY EPIDEMIC IN

AMERICA.

Terry: WE NEED TO STAND

TOUGH AND DO SOME RESEARCH

ON GLUCOSE.

Pat: YOUR BODY NEEDS

GLUCOSE TO EXIST.

BUT YOU OUGHT TO READ THE

LABELS.

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP --

IT IS IN EVERYTHING.

Terry: IT REALLY IS.

LAURIE JOHNSON HAS DONE

REPORTS JUST RECENT ON

THAT.

UP NEXT, WE HAVE AVERTED THE

FISCAL CLIFF FOR NOW, BUT AT

WHAT COST?

THAT'S THE QUESTION.

AND WE HAVE SOME ANSWERS

COMING UP.

CHANNEL 4

Pat: WELL, MARKETS ARE

ESTATIC AROUND THE WORLD AS

A RESULT OF THE DEAL MADE ON

THE SO-CALLED FISCAL CLIFF.

BUT NOT EVERYONE

THANKSGIVING THATHINKS THAT

DEAL IS GOOD NEWS FOR THE

ECONOMY IN THE LONG RUN.

PAUL STRAND HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: MANY SAY

RAISING TAXES ON THE

WEALTHIEST 1%, INSTEAD OF

CUTTING SPENDING, WILL HURT

THE FOUNDATION.

THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION

LOOKED AT A PLAN IF YOU DID

THIS, AND FOUND THERE WOULD

BE A $200 BILLION HURT IN

TERMS OF G.D.P., TO THE

ECONOMY.

Reporter: THAT COULD

MAKE AN ALREADY WEAK ECONOMY

EVEN WEAKER.

SUCH A NEGATIVE EFFECT WILL

LIKELY BE FELT WORLDWIDE,

LIKE IN CHINA, WHERE THE

BOOM DAYS HAVE BEEN REPLACED

BY MODEST GROWTH, AND

EUROPE, WHERE BASKET CASES

LIKE GREECE AND STRAIN, ARE

PUTTING A STRAIN ON THE

ENTIRE EUROPEAN UNION.

AND IT COULD SHOW IN THE

IMPROVING HOUSING MARKET

HERE AT HOME AND THE

BUDGET.

THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET

WARNS US THAT OBAMA'S EAT

THE RICH CRUSADE WILL THROW

200,000 MIDDLE CLASS

FAMILIES INTO UNEMPLOYMENT.

ERN ANERNST & YOUNG

ESTIMATES 700,000 JOBS.

TAKING MORE MONEY AWAY

FROM THEM, MEANS MORE LESS

FACT TORIES AND LESS JOBS.

Reporter: OTHERS ARE

PLEASED ON TAXING THE

WEALTHY MORE IN THIS DEAL.

A DEAL THAT REALLY IS

JUST, ONE THAT REQUIRES AND

ASKS THOSE WHO HAVE

BENEFITED GREATLY FROM OUR

SOCIETY, TO PAY THEIR FAIR

SHARE, WHICH I DON'T BELIEVE

THEY HAVE THUS FAR.

Reporter: ON THE OTHER

HAND, SENATOR RAND PAUL

WARNS THIS DEAL WILL

BACKFIRE, TAKING MONEY FROM

THE JOB CREATORS WHO COULD

HAVE HELPED GROW THE

ECONOMY.

NOW IT MAY WELL SHRINK.

THEY WANT MORE REVENUE.

I THINK IF YOU RAISE TAX

RATES, YOU MAY GET LESS

REVENUE.

LAST YEAR IN ENGLAND, THEY

RAISED THE RATES, AND THEY

GOT LESS REVENUES.

THERE IS AN EMPLOYEE THEY

CAN'T HIRE NEXT YEAR, OR TWO

EMPLOYEES OR FIVE

EMPLOYEES.

THIS DOES NOTHING BUT HURT

THE ECONOMY.

Reporter: LINDSAY

GRAHAM WARNS THE DEAL'S

OTHER FAILURE TO REFORM THE

ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS, LIKE

SOCIAL SECURITY, WILL

EVENTUALLY TAKE AMERICA DOWN

THE SAME PATH AS NEARLY

BANKRUPT GREECE.

MEDICAID AND SOCIAL

SECURITY, IF YOU DON'T

REFINE THEM, WILL TAKE ALL

OF THE INCOME.

Reporter: ANDY ROTH

WARNS CREDIT AGENCIES ARE

THREATENING OTHER DOWNGRADE

OF AMERICA'S CREDIT RATING

BECAUSE WASHINGTON ISN'T

CUTTING SPENDING ENOUGH.

THEY ARE ASKING FOR

4 TRILLION TO $$5 TRILLION

FOR DEFICIT REDUCTION.

HOW MANY TIMES DO WE MAKE

A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL,

SAYING IF YOU INCREASE

TAXES, WE'LL CUT SPENDING,

AND IT NEVER HAPPENS.

NOW IS THE TIME TO HAVE A

SERIOUS CONVERSATION ABOUT

SPENDING.

IF WARREN BUFFETT WANTS TO

EXPLAIN ABOUT THIS CHECK,

WHY DO AMERICANS PAY FOR HIS

DRUG BENEFITS.

Reporter: HERE ON

CAPITOL HILL, THEY FEEL THAT

A FISCAL CLIFF AVERTED FEEL

A DISASTER DIVERTED.

BUT THOSE WHO LOOK AT THE

LONG-TERM EFFECTS ARE SAYING

IT MAY ACTUALLY CAUSE MORE

TROUBLE THAN IT AVERTS.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, JUST A FEW

COMMENTS FROM ME AT THE

BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

PEOPLE, I THINK, FELT SO

RELIEVED BECAUSE FISCAL

CLIFF, OF COURSE EVERYONE

WAS DREADING THAT, AND HALF

OF THE PEOPLE WHO WERE

DREADING IT DIDN'T EVEN KNOW

WHY THEY ARE DREADING IT --

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

Terry: AND NOW WE FEEL

THIS SENSE OF RELIEF, BUT

THE TRUTH IS, NOTHING HAS

REALLY BEEN SOLVED, HAS IT?

Pat: TERRY, JESUS SAID,

A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST

ITSELF CAN'T STAND.

A KINGDOM AGAINST ITSELF

CAN'T STAND.

WE ARE DIVIDED, AND THE

DIVISION HAS TO DO WITH THE

TAKERS AND THE PROVIDERS,

AND THE TAKERS ARE NOW IN

EXCESS OF 50% OF OUR

POPULATION.

THEY TAKE, YOU MAIM IT.

NAME IT.

IT STARTS WITH SOCIAL

SECURITY AND IT GOES ON TO

MEDICARE.

AND THEN WILL ARE SUBSIDIES

FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF

BUSINESSES.

WE JUST TALKED ABOUT THE

ALGAE GROWERS AND THE CORN

GROWERS AND THE SUGAR

GROWERS, AND EVERYBODY HAS

GOT A DEAL.

AND SO WHEN YOU ADD IT ALL

TOGETHER, NOBODY WANTS TO

GIVE UP THEIR PIECE OF THE

PIE.

AND THEY DON'T SEEM TO THINK

THAT GOVERNMENT IS NOT

INFINITE, AND THAT THE MONEY

WILL ONE DAY RUN OUT.

THEY SEEM TO THINK IT WILL

GO ON FOREVER.

Terry: BUT WHAT -- IN

THE END, EVERYBODY IS GOING

TO LOSE THEIR PIECE OF THE

PIE IF EVERYBODY DOESN'T

SACRIFICE SOME.

SO WHAT HAS TO HAPPEN FOR US

TO REALIZE HOW SERIOUS THIS

IS AND WE DO HAVE TO MAKE

SACRIFICES?

Pat: WE HAVE TO GET A

POLITICAL CLASS THAT IS

WILLING TO RISK THEIR

ELECTION, AND THEY WON'T DO

IT.

THEY AREN'T ABOUT TO

TOUCH -- THEY TALK ABOUT

SOCIAL SECURITY AS A THE

THIRD RAIL.

THEY'VE GOT TO FIX THE THING

BECAUSE IT IS GOING

BANKRUPT.

MEDICARE IS BANKRUPT, AND

THEY HAVE TO FIX IT, BUT

THEY DON'T DARE TO DO IT.

A FEW LITTLE FIXES.

IT WOULDN'T TAKE MUCH TO

RAISE THE ELIGIBILITY AGE,

AND THEY WON'T EVEN FIX IT

AROUND THE EDGES.

IT IS A COVER FOR THE FAX

THEY'RE GUTLESS WONDERS, ALL

THE WAY ACROSS THE BOARD.

IT IS NOT JUST THE

PRESIDENT.

I'D LIKE TO BLAME HIM, BUT I

CAN'T JUST BLAME HIM

SOLELY.

IT IS JUST AS BAD FOR THE

REPUBLICANS AND JUST AS BAD

FOR THE DEMOCRATS BECAUSE

THEY'RE ALL PERMITTING THESE

THINGS TO HAPPEN, AND THEY

ARE -- EXCUSE ME, THEY ARE

NOT ADDRESSING THE MAJOR

PROBLEM, WHICH IS FOR EVERY

DOLLAR -- OR SAY $100 WE

SPEND, WE BORROW ABOUT $40,

$45 OF THOSE DOLLARS.

YOU CAN'T LIVE YOUR LIFE

THAT WAY.

IF YOUR PERSONAL BUDGET --

IF YOU GO TO THE GROCERY

STORE AND WITH THE BAG OF

GROCERIES, YOU'RE BORROWING

40 CENTS ON EVERY DOLLAR YOU

SPEND -- YOU CAN'T DO THAT.

BUT WE'RE PASSING IT ON TO

OUR CHILDREN.

THE CHILDREN ARE NOT QUITE

READY TO STAND UP AND TALK

ABOUT IT, BUT THE CHILDREN

ARE SAYING, WE WANT OURS.

WE WANT OUR COLLEGE

TUITIONS.

WE WANT OUR SECURED LOANS,

AND WE WANT THIS SUBSIDY AND

THAT SUBSIDY.

AND NOBODY WANTS TO SAY WHAT

IS GOOD FOR AMERICA.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE NEED.

WE NEED A PRESIDENT, WE NEED

A CONGRESS, AND WE NEED A

PUBLIC THAT SAY, YES, IT

WILL TAKE SACRIFICE.

I LOVE WHAT WINSTON

CHURCHILL SAID A FEW YEARS

AGO TO THE BRITISH

PEOPLE, "I HAVE NOTHING TO

OFFER YOU BUT BLOOD, SWEAT,

AND TEARS."

BECAUSE HE KNEW THEY HAD TO

HAVE HARDSHIP, THEY HAD TO

HAVE SUFFERING, BUT THEY

WERE GOING TO WIN AGAINST

THE NAZIS.

AND THEY DID WIN.

BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS.

AND WE'VE GOT TO COME TO A

POINT WHERE WE SAY THERE

WILL BE SACRIFICE OF THE

LUXURIES WE HAVE ENJOYED, AT

LEAST A FEW OF THEM, IN

ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR

NATION IS SECURE FOR OUR

CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN.

AND THAT'S OUR PROBLEM,

FOLKS.

CONGRESS IS DOING WHAT THE

PEOPLE WANT.

THE PRESIDENT -- YOU KNOW,

WHATEVER YOU THINK OF HIM,

IS GIVING THE PEOPLE WHAT

THEY ASK FOR.

THAT'S HOW COME HE GOT

ELECTED SO BIG, HE GAVE THEM

WHAT THEY ASKED FOR.

Terry: AND THE PEOPLE

AREN'T EVEN SURE OF WHAT HAY

THEY NEED, MUCH LESS WHAT

THEY SHOULD --

Pat: THEY WANT SOCIAL

SECURITY, THEY WANT CHEAP

LOANS, CHEAP MONEY, AND ALL

OF THOSE THINGS --

Terry: IT HAS TO STOP

SOMEWHERE.

PARENT IT

Pat: IT HAS TO STOP BY

SAYING WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE

AMERICANS, WHAT IS GOOD FOR

THE LABOR UNIONS, WHAT IS

GOOD FOR THE WORKING MOMS,

AND THIS AND THAT, AND EACH

GROUP WANTS THEIR STUFF.

UNTIL WE GET TO A POINT

WHERE WE ARE UNSELFISH AND

WE ARE UNITED IN SAYING,

LET'S REBUILD OUR NATION, WE

HAVE A CRISIS.

WHEN YOU OWE THE AMOUNT OF

MONEY THAT WE OWE IN THIS

COUNTRY, TRILLION DOLLARS --

$16 TRILLION -- TRILLION --

TRILLION DOLLARS.

Terry: UNIMAGINABLE.

Pat: AND THEY SAY,

LET'S CLIP THESE RICH

PEOPLE.

WE'LL GET 3.6% MORE TAXES

OUT OF THEM.

WE'LL RAISE THE CAPITAL

GAINS TAXES FROM 15% TO 20%,

BIG DEAL.

THAT ISN'T GOING TO COVER IT

FOR MORE THAN A FEW DAYS.

WE'VE GOT TO COME ALL THE

WAY ACROSS THE BARD.

BOARD.

AND, YES, IT WILL HIT THE

MIDDLE CLASS.

BUT IF WE MAKE INTELLIGENT

DECISIONS IN A PASSIONATE

WAY, AND SAY ONE GOAL: HOW

DO WE MAKE SURE THIS COUNTRY

IS ON A FIRM FISCAL

FOUNDATION AND GOES INTO THE

NEXT CENTURY -- HOW DO WE DO

THAT?

WHAT STEPS SHOULD WE TAKE

NOW FOR OUR CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN.

AND LET THAT BE OUR GOAL,

INSTEAD OF WHAT'S IN IT FOR

ME?

BUT RIGHT NOW YOU CAN'T

BLAME THE POLITICIANS,

BECAUSE THE POLITICIANS ARE

DOING EXACTLY WHAT YOU, THE

PEOPLE, ARE ASKING THEM TO

DO.

AND THOSE WHO SAY NO, THEY

GET KICKED OUT OF OFFICE.

Terry: SO THE BOTTOM

LINE IS, WE NEED TO FIX IT.

Pat: WE NEED TO FIX

OURSELVES.

WE NEED TO LOOK DEEP INTO

OUR HEARTS AND SAY, ARE WE

GOING TO BE SELFISH OR

UNSELFISH.

YOU KNOW, IF BUFFET -- I'M

TELLING YOU, HE HAS GOT THE

PERFECT TAX SHELTER.

Terry: AND HE TALKS

ABOUT BEING WILLING TO GIVE

UP MORE, AND HE'S NOT REALLY

DRAINING MUCH.

Pat: HE HAS AN

INSURANCE COMPANY.

YOU KNOW THE LAW ON

INSURANCE COMPANIES?

THEY HAVE STATUTORY

RESERVES.

THOSE RESERVES CAN BE PUT

ASIDE, GROWING MONEY,

TAX-FREE.

THEY DON'T PAY TAXES ON IT.

SO THEY BUILD UP THIS HUGE

AMOUNT OF CASH.

SO HE CAN GO BUY THE

BERLINGTON NORTHERN

RAILROAD, AND HE CAN BUY

THIS AND BUY THAT, AND HE

KEEPS BUYING COMPANIES,

BECAUSE HE HAS GOT THIS

SLUSH FUND OF NON-TAXED

MONEY.

OH, WELL.

SO MUCH FOR THAT.

BUT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

YOU SAY, CAN WE REFORM HUMAN

NATURE?

PROBABLY NOT.

BUT YOU CAN HOPE.

TERRY?

Terry: AND PRAY.

COMING UP, THE STORY OF A

YOUNG GERMAN GIRL WHO DID

THE UNTHINKABLE.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LOSE

HIM.

SO YOU DO THINGS.

IT WAS A HARD STEP FOR ME.

A VERY HARD STEP, BUT I

FINALLY -- I DID IT.

Terry: SEE HOW ONE

DECISION NEARLY RUINED HER

LIFE, AND HOW ANOTHER ONE

RESCUED HER.

Pat: WE'VE GOT A HAPPY

STORY FOR YOU, AND I THINK

IT IS TIME.

YOU HEAR ENOUGH BAD NEWS,

AND WE'VE GOT GOOD NEWS FOR

YOU.

IT IS A NEW YEAR, AND MAYBE

YOU WOULD LIKE A FRESH

START.

BUT YOU THINK YOU'RE LIFE IS

SUCH A MESS, YOU COULD NEVER

TURN IT AROUND.

WELL, THE WOMAN YOU'RE ABOUT

TO MEET FELT THAT WAY, TOO.

FOR NINE YEARS SHE SLEPT

WITH COUNTLESS MEN FOR

MONEY.

SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE.

AND SHE THOUGHT THERE WAS NO

WAY SHE COULD EVER CHANGE.

NO WAY OUT.

UNTIL THE DAY SHE TURNED ON

A TELEVISION PROGRAM.

Reporter: ROSE WAS BORN

IN A SMALL GERMAN TOWN.

SHE GREW UP LOVING GOD AND

LOVING SCHOOL.

I HAD A MOTHER WHO WAS A

VERY DEVOTED CATHOLIC LADY.

SHE MADE US GO EVERY DAY TO

MASS.

AND THAT HELPED ME AT THIS

TIME TO HEAR AND TO LEARN A

LITTLE BIT ABOUT GOD.

WHEN I WENT THROUGH THE

SCHOOL, I HAD GOOD GRADES,

BUT I ALWAYS HAD AN "A," AND

MY MOM WAS PROUD FOR THAT

"A."

Reporter: BUT HER HAPPY

CHILDHOOD ENDED WHEN SHE WAS

RAPED BY A CLOSE FAMILY

FRIEND.

ROSE WAS ONLY 12 YEARS OLD.

I WAS FULL OF GUILT AND

SHAME AND HUMILIATION.

I SAW MYSELF VERY UGLY, VERY

UGLY.

AND THAT'S A MAGNITUDE THAT

I JUST LOST INTEREST TO

LEARN.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH ROSE

HAD BEEN ACCEPTED TO A

BUSINESS SCHOOL, SHE

EVENTUALLY DROPPED OUT.

AT 19, ROSE DECIDED TO MOVE

TO SWITZERLAND TO BE NEAR

HER OLDER BROTHER.

IT WAS THE ESCAPE ROUTE,

SO TO SPEAK.

TO LEAVE ALL THOSE MEMORIES

BEHIND ME AND START IN A NEW

TOWN, IN A FRESH

ENVIRONMENT.

Reporter: ROSE STARTED

WORKING AT A HIGH-END BAR AS

A FLOOR HOSTESS.

HER TASTE FOR ALCOHOL AND

THE FAST LIFE BECAME

INSATIABLE.

I WAS ONE OF THE

FAVORITES AND MADE LOTS OF

MONEY, JUST BY SELLING THEIR

CHAMPAGNE, WHICH WAS VERY,

VERY EXPENSIVE.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO DRINKING, ROSE DROVE

HEAD-ON IN A RELATIONSHIP

NAMED ROBERT.

HE SEEMED TO BE THE MAN OF

HER DREAMS.

I WAS REALLY IN LOVE WITH

HIM.

HE WAS VERY NICE-LOOKING.

AND HE HAD LOTS OF CHARISMA,

TOO.

AND WE TALKED ABOUT THE

FUTURE LATER ON.

Reporter: ROSE

EVENTUALLY SHARED WITH

ROBERT HER DREAM TO OPEN AN

UP SCALE CLOTHING BOUTIQUE

WITH DESIGNS FROM PARIS.

HE TOLD ME, LISTEN, THERE

IS SOMETHING MORE LUCRATIVE

TO DO, AND WE CAN MAKE MORE

MONEY IN A SHORT PERIOD OF

TIME, TO GET INTO A

BUSINESS.

Reporter: ROBERT

SUGGESTED THAT ROSE BECOME A

PROSTITUTE.

THINK ABOUT BUSINESS AND

THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE.

YOU JUST DO IT FOR A FEW

YEARS AND THEN WE JUST BE

OUT OF THAT AND OUR FUTURE

IS SECURED.

THAT'S WHAT ROBERT SAID.

AND I JUST WAS VERY SHOCKED

AT FIRST.

IT WAS HARD ON ME.

BUT, YOU KNOW, I BEGAN MORE

DRINKING.

AND I NUMBED MYSELF FOR

THAT.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LOSE HIM,

SO YOU DO THINGS.

IT WAS A HARD STEP FOR ME.

A VERY HARD STEP, BUT I

FINALLY -- I DID IT.

Reporter: FOR THE NEXT

NINE YEARS, ROSE SOLD HER

BODY AS A PROSTITUTE, AND

ROBERT WAS HER PIMP.

ROBERT CONTROLLED THE MONEY

AND ROSE.

I IT WAS A VERY

LUCRATIVE BUSINESS AT THIS

TIME.

BUT HE TOOK THE MOST OF THE

MONEY.

SOMETIMES I THOUGHT I WAS

DYING INSIDE.

I FELT EMPTY.

THAT'S WHY I FILLED IT UP

WITH ALCOHOL.

I WAS A VERY HEAVY SMOKER.

AND, OF COURSE, I HAD

PILLS.

MY COMPANY WAS CONSTANTLY

FEAR, FEAR, FEAR, FEAR,

FEAR.

Reporter: AFTER NEARLY

A DECADE OF COMPLIANCE TO

ROBERT, ROSE FOUND OUT, FROM

A FELLOW PROSTITUTE, THAT

ROBERT HAD ANOTHER

GIRLFRIEND AS WELL AS A WIFE

AND TWO KIDS BACK IN HIS

HOME TOWN.

SHE FINALLY REACHED HER

BREAKING POINT.

I WAS SO HURT.

I COULDN'T EAT ANYMORE.

SO I BECAME ANOREXIC FOR A

LONG TIME.

AND SO I BECOME MORE AND

MORE INVOLVED IN ALCOHOL,

AND EVEN IN SOME DRUGS, TO

HELP TO FORGET WHAT I HURT.

SO ON AND OFF, HE JUST CAME

TO GET MONEY, AND I

SHORTENED HIM ON MONEY.

AND HE WAS WONDERING, BUT I

SAID THE BUSINESS IS NO MORE

GOOD.

BUT I STUCK AND STASHED UP

SOME MONEY AND SAVED MONEY.

Reporter: OVER TIME,

ROSE SAVED ENOUGH MONEY TO

LEAVE ROBERT AND MOVE TO

FRANKFURT.

I ENTERED INTO MY

APARTMENT, WENT IN MY

BATHROOM, AND LOOKED IN THE

MIRROR.

AND I SAW WHAT I SAW.

AND I JUST SAID, GOD, FROM

MY DEPTHS OF MY SOUL, HELP

ME TO GET OF THAT

LIFESTYLE.

HELP ME TO GET OUT.

Reporter: A FEW MONTHS

LATER, ROSE RECEIVED A JOB

OFFER THAT ALLOWED HER TO

COME TO THE UNITED STATES.

ONE DAY SHE HAD A

BREAKTHROUGH WHILE SHOPPING

IN LOS ANGELES.

I WAS IN THE STORE, AND I

HEARD SOME MUSIC.

AND I SAID THAT SOUNDS SO

WONDERFUL.

I CALLED THAT LADY WHO WAS

WORKING THERE, AND I SAID,

IS THAT CHRISTIAN MUSIC?

SHE SAID, YES.

Reporter: THE STORE

OWNER TALKED TO HER ABOUT

GOD AND SUGGESTED SHE START

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I CAUGHT "THE 700 CLUB,"

PAT ROBERTSON WAS ON.

AND I LISTENED AND

LISTENED.

HE PREYED PRAYED, WOULD YOU

RECEIVE JESUS?

MAKE PEACE IN YOUR HEART.

WOULD YOU RECEIVE THAT MAN

WHO DIED ON THE CROSS FOR

YOU, WHO GAVE HIS LIFE FOR

YOU, WOULD YOU RECEIVE HIM

IN YOUR HEART AND PRAY THIS

PRAYER WITH ME?

AND SO I PRAYED WITH HIM THE

PRAYER, THE SINNER'S PRAYER,

AND REPENTED OF MY SINS, AND

IT WAS JUST A WEIGHT THAT

CAME OFF OF MY ENTIRE BODY,

OFF MY MIND.

I FELT LIGHT.

I FELT SOMETHING THAT

ILLUMINATED ME.

Reporter: ROSE STARTED

CALLING THE PRAYER LINES

FREQUENTLY TO RECEIVE HELP

WITH HER ADDICTIONS.

FOR SOME YEARS, THEY SENT

ME MATERIAL, TAPES AT THIS

TIME, AND I LEARNED THROUGH

THAT.

AND MANY THINGS, I LEARNED

WHAT PAT ROBERTSON WAS

TEACHING, THE SECRET OF THE

KINGDOM.

THAT WORD CLEARED OUT THE

DESIRE FOR ALCOHOL AND THE

DESIRE FOR JESUS GREW IN

ME.

Reporter:

TODAY ROSE

HAS BEEN COMPLETELY

DELIVERED FROM HER

ADDICTIONS AND EATING

DISORDERS.

SHE IS A FULL-TIME SPEAKER

AND WOMEN'S PASTOR AND HAS

WRITTEN HER AUTOBIOGRAPHY TO

SHARE JESUS CHRIST WITH

OTHERS.

ONCE I WAS LOST, AND NOW

I AM FOUND.

ONCE I WAS DEAD, AND NOW I'M

ALIVE IN HIM.

JESUS CHRIST MEANS

EVERYTHING TO ME.

HE IS THE LIFE-GIVER.

Pat: WOW, WHAT A

STORY!

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

DO YOU THINK YOU'RE TOO FAR

GONE?

ROSE, I'M SURE, WAS CRYING

OUT, HOW DO I GET OUT OF

THIS THING?

OH, WHO WILL DELIVER ME FROM

THIS BODY OF DEATH, IS WHAT

THE APOSTLE PAUL WROTE IN

THE BOOK OF ROMANS.

WHO WILL SET ME FREE?

WHO IS GOING TO SET ME

FREE?

AS A NEW YEAR BEGINS, DO YOU

WANT TO BE FREE?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO START A

NEW LIFE?

TURN OVER A NEW SLATE, IF

YOU WILL, GET A CLEAN

SLATE?

ONLY IN CHRIST, CAN YOU HAVE

A TRUE, NEW BEGINNING.

OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY,

BEHOLD ALL THINGS ARE NEW.

HE'LL MAKE IT FRESH, HE'LL

MAKE IT NEW, AND HE'LL GIVE

YOU A BRAND NEW START.

WHAT DO HAVE TO DO?

YOU HAVE TO TURN FROM THE

LIFE YOU'VE BEEN LIVING.

YOU HAVE TO TURN AWAY FROM

SIN.

ROSE LOOKED IN THE MIRROR

AND TURNED AWAY.

SHE DIDN'T WANT ANY MORE OF

THE PROSTITUTION.

SHE DIDN'T WANT ANY MORE OF

THE DRUGS.

SOME OF THEM STILL HAD A

HOLD OF HER, BUT SHE TURNED

AWAY FROM THEM.

THAT'S CALLED REPENTANCE.

YOU TURN AWAY.

AND ASK YOURSELF WHAT ARE

YOU DOING THAT IS DESTROYING

YOU?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING THAT YOU

HATE?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU KNOW

IS BAD FOR YOU?

AND RIGHT NOW, I WANT YOU TO

TURN AWAY FROM IT.

AND I WANT YOU TO TURN TO

JESUS.

AND I WANT TO YOU SAY THESE

WORDS WITH ME AND MEAN THEM

IN YOUR HEART.

JESUS -- PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU DIED FOR

ME.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU ROSE AGAIN

THAT I MIGHT LIVE FOREVER.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU'RE ALIVE

RIGHT NOW.

AND I ASK, LORD, THAT YOU

WOULD COME INTO MY HEART,

THAT YOU WOULD LIVE YOUR

LIFE IN ME.

AND I WILL LIVE FOR YOU, AND

I WILL SERVE YOU ALL THE

DAYS OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, JESUS, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER AND

HAVE COME INTO MY HEART.

NOW I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

JUST LIKE ROSE.

THOUSANDS OF YOU RIGHT NOW,

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR

HEAD.

LET ME PRAY FOR YOU.

FATHER, MAY THE ANOINTING

POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

TOUCH EACH ONE WHO PRAYED

WITH ME.

SET THEM FREE FROM THAT

WHICH WOULD BIND THEM.

WE BREAK THE CHAINS OF

BONDAGE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AND MAY THE PRESENCE AND THE

ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

REST UPON THEM FROM THIS

MOMENT ON IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I WANT YOU TO MAKE A

BIG DEAL OF IT.

THE BIBLE SAYS, OH, MAGNIFY

THE LORD WITH ME.

MAGNIFY THE LORD.

LET US EXALT HIS NAME

TOGETHER.

CALL RIGHT NOW ON THE PHONE,

NEW E-MAILS, LIKE THIS ONE

FROM MELISSA WHO SAYS, THE

BIBLE SAYS WE'RE SUPPOSED TO

EXAMINE OURSELVES BEFORE WE

TAKE COMMUNION SO WE DON'T

CONDEMN OURSELVES.

DOES THIS MEAN IF WE HAVE

ANY SIN IN OUR LIFE WE

SHOULDN'T TAKE COMMUNION?"

STAY TUNED THO FOR THAT

ANSWER STILL AHEAD.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FIVE TEACHERS AND TWO AIDE

WORKERS SHOT BY ISLAMIC

GUNMEN WERE BURIED TODAY IN

PAKISTAN.

HUNDREDS OF VILLAGERS TURNED

OUT FOR THEIR FUNERALS.

THE VICTIMS WERE PAKISTANI

NATIONALS.

THEY WERE LINKED TO RECENT

WORKERS OF POLIO VACCINATION

WORKERS.

THE MILITANT GROUPS HAVE

ACCUSED WORKERS OF USING THE

PROGRAM TO STERILIZE

MUSLIMS.

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

CHRISTIANS ARE WORSHIPPING

GOD IN WORD AND DEED IN

ATLANTA.

THE REFERRED LOU GIGLIO IS

HOSTING "PASSION 18-25."

ABOUT 60,000 ARE

Terry: WELL, ALL OVER

THE WORLD, "ORPHAN'S

PROMISE" PROVIDES FOOD,

SHELTER AND EDUCATION FOR

AT-RISK CHILDREN, LIKE THESE

TWO ORPHANED SISTERS FROM

SOUTH AFRICA.

Reporter: WHEN RONLA'S

MOTHER DIED A YEAR AGO, SHE

WAS LEFT TO TAKE CARE OF HER

LITTLE SISTER ALONE.

MY MOTHER PROMISED US WE

WOULD HAVE A GOOD LIFE.

IT HURT SO MUCH WHEN SHE

DIED.

I KNEW OUR LIVES WOULD BE

VERY BAD WITHOUT HER.

Reporter: RELATIVES

JUST LET THE GIRLS FEND FOR

THEMSELVES.

IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT.

NOBODY EVEN CARED IF WE HAD

FOOD TO EAT OR NOT.

Reporter: THEN THEY

FOUND PEOPLE WHO DID CARE.

THEY FOUND A CHILDREN'S HOME

SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

WE TOOK THEM IN

IMMEDIATELY.

THIS CENTER IS HOME TO

DOZENS OF ORPHANED OR

ABANDONED KIDS.

IT WAS LIKE WE COULD

START OUR LIVES OVER AGAIN.

THE PEOPLE HERE BECAME OUR

NEW FAMILY.

THEY TAKE GOOD CARE OF US.

NOW I CAN DO ALL OF MY

HOMEWORK, AND I'M GETTING

GOOD GRADES IN SCHOOL.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US AND

GIVING US A PLACE TO LIVE.

Terry: IT'S HARD TO

IMAGINE HOW FRIGHTENING IT

WOULD BE TO BE A YOUNG

CHILD, LOSE THE ONLY PARENT

THAT YOU HAVE, AND FEEL

RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR YOUNGER

SIBLING.

WITH NO HOPE, NO OPPORTUNITY

FOR INCOME, NO PLACE TO

BELONG, NO PLACE TO BE

SAFE.

Pat: TERRY, AS YOU WERE

TALKING, THE BIBLE SAYS YOU

SHOULD ADMINISTER TO THE

WIDOWS AND THE ORPHANS.

I WAS BEGINNING TO

CONTEMPLATE IN A THIRD WORLD

COUNTRY, AN ORPHAN, THAT

CHILD -- I'VE SEEN THEM IN

PLACES WHERE THEY WERE SOLD,

YOU KNOW?

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: IN COLOMBIA, THE

POLICE ACTUALLY WENT ON THE

STREET AND PICKED THEM UP

AND BURNED THEM SO THEY

WOULDN'T BE THERE WHEN THE

POPE ARRIVED.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: THEY ARE RAPED AND

MUTILATED, AND THEY LIVE BY

THEIR WITS.

AND THEY'RE OUT ON THE

STREETS STEALING.

I REMEMBER COMING OUT OF A

HOTEL AND SEEING WHAT LOOKED

LIKE A PILE OF RAGS ON THE

SIDEWALK.

AND IT WASN'T RAGS.

IT WAS THESE LITTLE -- THEY

CALL THEM GOMINOS, WHO ARE

HUDDLED TOGETHER ON THE

SIDEWALK --

Terry: TO TRY TO STAY

WARM.

Pat: TO TRY TO STAY

WARM.

Terry: A LOT OF KIDS GO

UNDERGROUND IN THE SEWER

SYSTEM BECAUSE THE PIPES CAN

BE WARM.

Pat: HOW DO YOU ESCAPE

THAT?

SOMEBODY OFFERS THEM DRUGS

SO THEY CAN STAY STONED AND

NOT NECESSARILY FEEL THE

PAIN.

THEY'RE CLEARLY BEING ABUSED

SEXUALLY, AND BEING ABUSED

PHYSICALLY, AND PEOPLE WORK

THEM TO DEATH IN FACTORIES.

AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE" ARE

HELPING THESE MOST

UNFORTUNATE MEMBERS OF OUR

HUMAN FAMILY.

THANKS, TERRY.

Terry: IT IS WONDERFUL

TO BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING,

AND WE REALLY CAN.

Pat: STILL AHEAD, A NEW

YEAR'S EVE EDITION OF "BRING

IT ON."

CHRISTIE SAYS, EVERY YEAR I

MAKE NEW YEAR'S EVE

RESOLUTIONS, BUT I CAN'T

STICK TO THEM.

WHAT CAN I DO, SHE SAYS?

WE'LL ANSWER THAT QUESTION

AND MORE OF YOUR E-MAILS

COMING UP.

Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

A FEW MINUTES TO ANSWER SOME

OF THE E-MAILS YOU'VE SENT

IN OVER THE HOLIDAY.

PAT, THIS IS FROM CHRISTINE

WHO SAYS, "EVERY YEAR I MAKE

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS, AND

EVERY YEAR THEY'RE THE SAME,

GET IN SHAPE, AND BECOME A

BETTER PERSON, BUT I CAN'T

STICK TO THEM.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: HERE IT IS -- WHAT

IS HER NAME?

Terry: CHRISTINE.

Pat: CHRISTINE, IT

TAKES 21 DAYS TO FORM A

HABIT.

THAT IS THREE WEEKS.

WHICH MEANS FOR THREE WEEKS'

TIME, EVERY DAY YOU WORK OUT

IN A GYM.

A LITTLE BIT OF WORK, NOT

MUCH WORK, HEAVY WORK,

WHATEVER, BUT EVERY DAY, FOR

21 DAYS, OR FOR 21 DAYS YOU

DON'T EAT SWEETS.

OR FOR 21 DAYS YOU EAT

HEALTHY VEGETABLES.

OR WHATEVER.

AT THE END OF 21 DAYS, YOU

WILL HAVE TRAINED YOUR BODY

SO THAT YOU WANT TO GO TO

THE GYM AND WORK OUT.

SO YOU WANT TO REFRAIN FROM

SWEETS.

THE SAME THING WITH SMOKING

CIGARETTES.

WHATEVER IT IS.

21 DAYS.

BUT DON'T START A THING AND

SAY FOR THE NEXT THOUSAND

YEARS I'M NOT GOING TO

SMOKE.

FOR THE NEXT -- I'M GOING TO

WORK OUT EVERY DAY FOR 100

YEARS OR SOMETHING.

I'M GOING TO DO IT TODAY.

YOU KNOW.

AND I HEARD DR. PHIL THE

OTHER DAY WHO SAID LIVE IN

THE PRESENT.

I THINK IT WAS HE OR ONE OF

THEM WHO SAID LIVE IN THE

PRESENT.

Terry: YOU KNOW WHAT I

HEAR YOU SAYING, AND I'VE

SEEN THIS IN YOUR LIFE, SO I

KNOW YOU FOLLOW THIS.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN.

TO JUST WISH TO HAVE THESE

THINGS --

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: AND ESPECIALLY

WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD, YOU

HAVE TO HAVE THE RIGHT FOOD

ON HAND.

GET RID OF THE OTHER STUFF.

YOU HAVE TO DO SOME

THINGS --

Pat: YOU DO.

BUT IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO

IT FOR 21 DAYS, YOU'VE GOT

TO GET THE SNACK FOOD OUT OF

YOUR HOUSE AND BRING IN

VEGETABLES AND CHEESE --

Terry: PUT YOUR

SNEAKERS NEAR THE FRONT

DOOR.

Pat: ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

JUST THINK 21 DAYS.

THAT'S ALL YOU'VE GOT TO

DO.

TODAY I'M GOING TO DO IT.

TOMORROW I'M GOING TO DO

IT.

THE FIRST WEEK IS EASY, AND

THE NEXT WEEK, AND BEFORE

LONG, YOU'RE IN ANOTHER

HABIT.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: MELISSA SAYS IN

1 CORINTHIANS, THE BIBLE

SAYS "WE'RE SUPPOSED TO

CONFESS OUR SINS BEFORE WE

TAKE COMMUNION.

SO DOES THIS MEAN IF WE HAVE

SINS WE SHOULDN'T TAKE

COMMUNION?"

Pat: ALL OF US HAVE

SINS.

BUT LET'S SAY YOU HAVE

DEEP-SEATED HOSTILITY FOR A

BOSS OR A FAMILY MEMBER --

YOU CAN'T GO INTO COMMUNION

AND HAVE THAT HATRED WITHOUT

EATING AND DRINKING

DAMNATION ON YOURSELF.

SO YOU NEED, BEFORE YOU TAKE

THE COMMUNION, TO SAY I

FORGIVE THE ONE WHO HAS HURT

ME.

I FORGIVE THE ONE WHO HAS

HELD A GRUDGE AGAINST ME.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

IF YOU'RE OUT HAVING ILLICIT

SEX AND SO FORTH, YOU NEED

TO SAY I'M NOT GOING TO DO

THAT ANYMORE.

YOU CAN'T ASK GOD TO PUT A

BLESSING ON YOUR SINFUL

ACTIVITY.

Terry: BUT THAT KIND OF

FORGIVENESS CAN TAKE PLACE

IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS BEFORE

YOU TAKE COMMUNION.

Pat: EXACTLY.

I FORGIVE MY WIFE.

I FORGIVE MY MOTHER-IN-LAW.

I FORGIVE MY CO-WORKER.

I FORGIVE THE MAN DOWN THE

STREET.

WHOEVER IT IS, I FORGIVE

THEM.

YOU CAN DO THAT INSTANTLY.

Terry: GILLIAN SAYS, "I

RECENTLY REBELLED AGAINST

THE LORD.

I'VE BEEN REPENTING, BUT

JUST EXPERIENCING AGONY AND

DISPAIR.

I USED TO HAVE A WONDERFUL

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD.

I DON'T KNOW IF MY HEART IS

HARD.

I WANT A RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD SO BADLY.

I MISS HIS LOVE.

IS THIS THE ENEMY'S

CONDEMNATION OR THE

LORD'S?"

Pat: NO, IT'S YOURS.

YOU'RE CONDEMNING YOURSELF.

YOU'RE FEELING CONDEMNATION

BECAUSE YOU'VE DONE

SOMETHING WRONG.

BUT YOU NEED TO FORGIVE

YOURSELF.

I THINK WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

IS SPEND SOME TIME.

GET OFF BY YOURSELF WITH THE

LORD.

AND SAY, LORD, I DID THIS, I

DID THIS, I DID THIS, AND I

DID THAT.

AND I ASK YOUR FORGIVENESS

OF EACH ONE OF THEM

SPECIFICALLY.

I RENOUNCE THEM AND I TURN

TO YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART,

AND I ASK THAT YOU WILL COME

AND HEAL ME AND FILL ME WITH

YOUR SPIRIT.

RESTORE UNTO ME THE JOY OF

YOUR SALVATION.

READ THE PSALMS.

SEE WHAT DAVID SAID AFTER HE

COMMITTED ADUL ADULTERY AND

HOW HE GOT A GUY KILLED.

HE STILL HAD THE HOLY

SPIRIT, BUT THE JOY OF HIR

SALVATION HAD GONE.

AND WHAT YOU'RE MISSING IS

THE JOY.

AND THEN BEGIN TO PRAISE

GOD.

BEGIN TO THANK HIM FOR HIS

FORGIVENESS BECAUSE HE

ABUNDANTLY WANTS TO FORGIVE

YOU.

WELL, TOMORROW, CHRISTIANS

WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE

LINE, AND THEIR FAITH, AND

WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 2

CORINTHIAN: "IF ANYONE IS IN

CHRIST, HE IS A NEW

CREATION.

OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED

AWAY.

BEHOLD, ALL HAS BECOME

NEW."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
