Lead singer of the rock group Creed shares about his journey to find a real relationship with God. Plus, Jeanene experiences a miracle as her fractured arm is restored. Read Transcript


* CAN YOU TAKE ME HIGHER

Lee: BEHIND THE NUKE

WITH CREED'S SCOTT STAPP.

THE PRICE OF FAME.

MY BODY BEGAN TO FEEL

LIKE IT DIDN'T HAVE THE

ENERGY.

Lee: HIS FALL FROM

GRACE.

EVEN IN THAT MOMENT,

THAT'S WHERE I BELONGED.

Lee: AND ULTIMATE

RETURN.

I SEE TWO ANGELS, AND

THEY'RE WASHING MY FEET.

Lee: ON TODAY'S "THE

700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION:

IS THE CONSTITUTION

SOMETHING WE OUGHT TO ABIDE

BY, AND IS THE SECOND

AMENDMENT STILL IN PLACE?

WELL, THE PRESIDENT

APPARENTLY BELIEVES THAT BY

EXECUTIVE ORDER HE CAN DO AN

END RUN AROUND THE GUN

CONTROL PROVISIONS OF THE

SECOND AMENDMENT, WHICH SAYS

THAT IT IS THE PEOPLE'S

RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS

SHOULD NOT BE A ABRIDGED.

IN ANY EVENT, GUN CONTROL IS

THE HOT TOPICS IN WASHINGTON

TODAY.

Terry: THE VICE

PRESIDENT'S MEETING WITH THE

NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION

AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE

ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY, AS

THE WHITE HOUSE TRIES TO

FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO ABOUT

GUN VIOLENCE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE NRA IS

LIKELY TO BE THE MOST

POPULAR OPPONENT TO THE

GOVERNMENT.

THE PRESIDENT HAS ALREADY

CALLED ON CONGRESS TO ACT ON

AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN, TO

ACT ON A BAN OF HIGH

CAPACITY AMMUNITION CLIPS.

Reporter: BUT SOME SAY

A CULTURE OF VIOLENCE ALSO

CONTRIBUTES TO GUN

VIOLENCE.

THAT'S WHY THE PRESIDENT

ASKED VICE PRESIDENT JOSEPH

BIDEN TO FOCUS NOT JUST ON

GUN CONTROL AND MENTAL

HEALTH ISSUES, BUT ALSO ON

THE IMPACT OF VIOLENCE IN

TV, MOVIES, AND VIDEO

GAMES.

STUDIES HAVE CONSISTENTLY

SHOWN THAT SCREEN VIOLENCE

DOES HAVE A NEGATIVE AFFECT

ON PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY

CHILDREN.

TELEVISION CONSUMPTION

HAS BEEN LINKED TO A NUMBER

OF NEGATIVE HEALTH

ASSOCIATIONS AND HEALTH

OUTCOMES IN CHILDREN.

WE KNOW THAT KIDS WHO ARE

EXPOSED TO HIGH LEVEL OF

VIOLENCE IN THE MEDIA, MORE

LIKELY BECOME AGGRESSIVE OR

ACT OUT VIOLENTLY.

WE KNOW THAT KIDS EXPOSED TO

HIGH LEVELS OF SEXUAL

CONTENT IN THE MEDIA BECOME

SEXUALLY ACTIVE EARLIER IN

LIFE.

IT HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH

POOR ACADEMIC FUNCTION.

Reporter: THE

GOVERNMENT DOESN'T ALWAYS

AGREE THAT VIOLENCE AND

ENTERTAINMENT ARE LOIDGED.

IN 2011, THE SUPREME COURT

STRUCK DOWN A CALIFORNIA

LAW, BANNING THE SALE OF

VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES TO

MINORS.

WHILE IT IS UNCLEAR WHAT, IF

ANY ACTION, THE GOVERNMENT

WILL TAKE AGAINST VIOLENCE

IN ENTERTAINMENT, BIDEN HAS

PROMISED WHITE HOUSE ACTION

ON GUN CONTROL.

HE DIDN'T OFFER SPECIFICS,

BUT THAT ACTION COULD

INCLUDE PRESIDENTIAL

EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT DON'T

NEED TO BE APPROVED BY

CONGRESS.

THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO

ACT.

THERE IS EXECUTIVE ACTION

THAT CAN BE DECIDEED.

WE HAVEN'T DECIDED WHAT THAT

IS YET.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THE BEST ACTION

THE PRESIDENT CAN TAKE IS

ENFORCE THE EXISTING LAWS.

WE UNDERSTAND THE LAST FOUR

YEARS HAVE BEEN A DECLINE, A

DRAMATIC DECLINE IN JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT ENFORCEMENT OF

ACTIONS AGAINST PEOPLE WHO

COMMITMENT CRIMES WITH

GUNS.

SO IT'S RATHER HYPOCRITICAL

TO SAY I'M NOW GOING TO DO

SOMETHING.

HE HAS HAD FOUR YEARS TO DO

SOMETHING.

HE HASN'T DONE IT.

CONGRESS HAS OTHER THINGS ON

ITS MIND RIGHT NOW, LIKE

TRYING TO CUT WASHINGTON'S

MASSIVE FEDERAL DEFICITS.

LEE WEBB HAS MORE ON THE

BATTLE OVER SPENDING.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

NOMINATING HIS

CHIEF-OF-STAFF TO BE THE NEW

TREASURY SECRETARY.

JACK LEW WILL TAKE OVER JUST

AS THE WHITE HOUSE AND

CONGRESS GEAR UP FOR THE

NEXT ROUND OF BATTLES OVER

GOVERNMENT SPENDING, AND

SOME REPUBLICANS SAY THEY

ARE WILLING TO FORCE A

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN IN ORDER

TO GET THE DEMOCRATS TO GO

ALONG WITH SERIOUS SPENDING

CUTS.

THE ACTIONS OF BOSTON MAYOR

TOM

MENINO ILLUSTRATE JUST

HOW SEVERE THIS FLU SEASON

IS.

I AM DECLARING A PUBLIC

HEALTH EMERGENCY IN THE CITY

OF BOSTON.

Lee: BOSTON HEALTH

OFFICIALS HAVE CONFIRMED 700

CASE OF THE FLU.

THAT'S 10 TIMES MORE THAN

ALL OF LAST SEASON.

THIS YEAR PEOPLE STARTED

GETTING SICK IN OCTOBER,

INSTEAD OF JANUARY.

THE FLU STRAIN MAKING MOST

PEOPLE SICK THIS YEAR IS

KNOWN AS H3N 2.

MANY CITIES ARE NOW OFFERING

FREE VACCINATIONS.

IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS,

ISRAELIS GO TO THE POLLS TO

DECIDE THE COUNTRY'S

LEADERSHIP AND DIRECTION.

THIS ELECTION COMES AT A

CRUCIAL TIME, AND IT COULD

HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON HOW

ISRAEL RESPONDS TO THE

CHANGING WORLD AROUND IT.

CHRIS MITCHELL EXPLAINS.

Reporter: ISRAELIS,

LIKE AMERICANS TWO MONTHS

AGO, ARE BEING BOMBARDED BY

POLITICAL ADS, INCLUDING

SOME MESSAGES WITH AN EDGE

FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATION.

WE ARE STARTING TO

UNDERSTAND THE PARTY AND THE

POLITICIANS, THAT IF YOU

WANT, LIKE, THE YOUNGEST

PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR YOU OR TO

TAKE THE ATTENTION FROM

THEM, SO YOU NEED TO DO

STUFF LIKE THAT.

Lee: INSTEAD OF A

TWO-PARTY SYSTEM, MORE THAN

30 CHAM MANY ISRAEL'S

POLITICAL LANDSCAPE.

THEY COMPETE FOR 120 SEATS

IN ISRAEL'S PARLIAMENT.

THEY MUST HAVE 60 OUR MORE

PLAYERS TO FORM THE NEXT

GOVERNMENT.

LIKE THE U.S., ISRAELIS'

PARTIES FORM TO THE LEFT AND

RIGHT.

ON THE LEFT OF THE SPECTRUM

IS THE LABOR PARTY.

THE POTENTIAL SPOILER OF

THIS CAMPAIGN IS NATALI

BENNETT AND HIS JEWISH HOME

PARTY.

SO FAR HE IS HURTING

NETANYAHU BY APPEALING TO

CONCERNS.

THE CURRENT PRIME MINISTER

MAY GIVE UP LAND TO APPEASE

U.S. AND EUROPEAN LEADERS.

RECENTLY BENNETT EXPLAINED

HIS BIBLICAL VIEW OF ISRAEL

TO CBN NEWS.

WE HAD A STATE IN THIS

VERY LAND 3,000 YEARS AGO,

2,000 YEARS AGO, AND NOW WE

HAVE IT AGAIN.

THAT IS PROFOUNDLY IMPORTANT

FROM A JEWISH AND BIBLICAL

STANDPOINT.

Reporter: THE LATEST

POLL SHOWS NETANYAHU'S PARTY

STILL IN THE LEAD WITH 34

SEATS, LABOR WITH 21 SEATS,

AND BENNETT'S JEWISH HOME

PARTY WITH 15 SEATS.

BUT AS MANY AS 30% OF

ISRAELIS SAY THEY'RE

UNDECIDED.

THE ISRAELI VOTE IS THE

EMOTIONAL VOTE.

HE DECIDES "X" AND THEN HE

GOES ON HIS WAY TO THE

ELECTION, AND HE MAY CHANGE

HIS MIND.

Reporter: THAT IS WHY

NETANYAHU COULD FACE

TROUBLE.

I THINK LABOR NOW HAS A

CHANCE OF SURPRISING, IF WE

MANAGE TO GET A BLOCKING

BLOCK OF 60, WE WILL BE ABLE

TO TILT THE WHOLE BALANCE IN

ISRAELI POLITICS, AND WE'RE

NOT FAR AWAY FROM THAT.

Reporter: THE LIKUD

PARTY SAYS THEY NEED TO STAY

THE COURSE.

IN MY OPINION, THE

COUNTRY NEEDS TO STAY IN THE

LEAD.

WE ARE FACING VERY, VERY

POWERFUL CHALLENGES IN THE

FUTURE.

Reporter: IT IS LIKELY

NETANYAHU WILL REMAIN PRIME

MINISTER, BUT WHOEVER LEADS

ISRAEL WILL FACE ECONOMIC

CHALLENGES AT HOME, GROWING

DANGER THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE

EAST, AND THE OFTEN

UNWELCOME PRESENCE OF WORLD

OPINION.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Lee: ANY PREDICTIONS,

PAT?

Pat: I THINK NETANYAHU

WILL STAY IN POWER.

HE IS VERY POPULAR STILL.

THESE ARE SOME

CROSS-CURRENTS YOU FIND, BUT

HE WILL HOLD POWER.

BUT WHO KNOWS HOW WEAKENED

HE IS GOING TO BE.

THIS HOMELAND PARTY HAS A

GREAT DEAL OF APPEAL TO THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

THEY'RE SAYING, LOOK, WE

DON'T WANT TO GIVE UP

ANYMORE OF OUR LAND.

A BIG MISTAKE TO HAVE GIVEN

UP GAZA SOME YEARS AGO.

BIG MISTAKE.

LOOK WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE

DOING IN GAZA, RAINING

ROCKET ATTACKS ON ISRAEL.

ISRAEL IS SURRENDERED NOW.

THERE MAY BE AS MANY AS 70,

75,000 MISSILES OR SCUDS

AIMED AT ISRAEL.

AND THE POSSIBILITY OF SOME

TRAGEDY IS VERY, VERY HIGH.

IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME

THAT A COUNTRY NEEDED TO

COME TOGETHER, IT WAS

THERE.

YOU'VE GOT DIVISION ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

THAT'S ONE OF THE PROBLEMS

WE'VE GOT, IS THAT YOU JUST

DON'T SEEM TO FIND

POLITICIANS WHO WILL WORK

TOGETHER.

THE CRISIS IN ISRAEL IS

HUGE, JUST LIKE THE CRISIS

HERE IN AMERICA.

LEE?

Lee: PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

PLANNING A

SYMBOLIC TWIST

FOR HIS INAUGURATION.

HE WILL

PLACE HIS

HAND ON

NOT ONE BIBLE, BUT TWO.

ONE OWNED BY ABRAHAM LINCOLN

AND THE OTHER BY MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR.

THE INAUGURATION FALLS ON

JANUARY 21st, THE SAY WE

HONOR

THE SLAIN CIVIL RIGHTS

LEADER.

OBAMA USED THE LINCOLN BIBLE

WHEN HE TOOK HIS FIRST OATH

OF OFFICE FOR YEARS AGO.

NOW LET'S GO BACK TO PAT FOR

AN IMPORTANT CALL OF PRAYER

AT THIS YEAR'S

INAUGURATION.

Pat: MARY TURNER IS

HOSTING US FROM WASHINGTON.

SHE WILL BE HOSTING THE

PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURAL

BREAKFAST.

IT IS NOT AN OFFICIAL EVENT,

BUT NEVERTHELESS THEY'RE

PRAYING FOR OUR NATION AND

OUR LEADERS.

MARY, GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING, PAT.

GOD CALLED US IN 1993 TO

HOST AN EVENT TO BRING

TOGETHER PEOPLE OF FAITH TO

PRAY FOR THE NATION AND THE

OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY.

SO WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT

CONTINUING RUTH WARD'S

LEGACY OF DOING THAT.

IT IS A REAL HONOR AND A

PRIVILEGE TO BE BRINGING

TOGETHER GOVERNMENT LEADERS

AND FOREIGN AMBASSADORS WITH

LEADERS SUCH AS YOURSELF,

THAT ARE PRAYING FOR OUR

NATION, AND EXPECTING TO SEE

GOD BRING REVIVAL IF WE TAKE

A STAND IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

Pat: IS THERE A

PARTICULAR THEME, OR IS IT

JUST THE IDEA "LET'S PRAY

FOR AMERICA."

THE THEME IS FROM ESTER

4: 13, THAT WE'RE CALLED TO

THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME

AS THIS.

JUST AS IN 20 YEARS AGO,

WHEN I WAS CALLED TO TAKE A

STAND FOR THE UNBORN, MY

CASE WAS EVENTUALLY APPEALED

TO THE U.S. SUPREME COURT.

AND WE TRIED TO ESTABLISH

PERSON HOOHOOD FOR THE

UNBORN.

IN A SIMILAR WAY, GOD IS

CALLING US TO STAND FOR THE

SOUL OF THIS NATION RIGHT

NOW.

IF WE DON'T DO IT, THEN HELP

WILL ARRIVE FROM SOMEWHERE

ELSE.

BUT HE WOULD CHOOSE TO USE

US.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO TAKE

COMMUNION ON INAUGURATION

MORNING, AND GOD IS GOING TO

REDEDICATE THIS NATION TO

HIMSELF.

AND SO IT IS A UNIQUE

OPPORTUNITY TO COME TOGETHER

AND STAND WITH OTHERS ACROSS

DENO DENONNATIONAL LINES

AND ACROSS POLITICAL LINES.

WE HAVE YOURSELF, AS WELL AS

MICHELE BACHMANN, AND RABBI

KAHN, WHO IS GOING TO BE

SPEAKING ABOUT THE JUDGMENTS

OF GOD.

Pat: I GUESS THE

PRESIDENT IS GOING TO BE TOO

BUSY TO COME?

WE HOPE HE WILL STOP IN

FOR A FEW MINUTES.

AND THERE IS SOMEONE MEETING

WITH HIS FAITH-BASED OFFICE

AS WE SPEAK.

WE ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GO TO

PIPB2013.COM AND MAKE THEIR

RESERVATIONS.

Pat: THANK YOU, MARY

FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

AND LET'S HOPE GOD WILL HEAR

THE PRAYERS OF HIS FAITHFUL

PEOPLE.

TERRY, WHAT HAVE YOU GOT

NEXT?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

ROCK STARR STAR REVEALS HIS

PUNISHING PAST.

HE SAT UNDER MY DOOR OR

CRACKED THE DOOR.

Terry: WE HAVE A CANDID

INTERVIEW WITH THE LEAD

SINGER OF CREED COMING UP.

BUT, FIRST, WHY IS THE

UNITED STATES LOOKING TO

EUROPE FOR ECONOMIC ADVICE.

WE'LL EXPLORE THE FRENCH

CONNECTION AFTER THIS.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WE JUST HAD AN

ELECTION, AND THE PRESIDENT

WON RE-ELECTION

OVERWHELMINGLY.

DID THE PEOPLE KNOW WHAT

THEY WERE ELECTING.

> HERE IS WHAT THE

ECONOMISTS HAD TO SAY ABOUT

THIS.

AN INTERESTING PICTURE OF

THE PRESIDENT WITH A BERET

AND APACHE LOOK, AND

BOEHNER.

ARE WE GOING EUROPEAN?

AND ARE WE GOING TO BE LIKE

FRANCE?

DALE HERD HAS A VERY

INSIGHTFUL ANALYSIS OF WHAT

IS HAPPENING TO FRANCE AND

WHY WE MIGHT BE GOING THE

SAME WAY.

HERE HE IS.

Reporter: IF AMERICANS

WANT A GLIMPSE INTO THEIR

POSSIBLE ECONOMIC FUTURE,

THEY SHOULD LOOK TO FRANCE.

HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT, LOW

GROWTH, MORE TAXES, MORE

PEOPLE ON WELFARE.

SOME ARE CALLING IT THE NEW

NORMAL.

SOME ARE SAYING AMERICA

LOOKS MORE AND MORE LIKE

EUROPE.

FRANCE SHOULD BE A

WARNING FOR AMERICANS WHO

JUST VOTED FOR FOUR MORE

YEARS OF BIG GOVERNMENT

SPENDING.

THE FRENCH ARE EXPERTS AT

BIG GOVERNMENT.

THEY'VE BEEN DEFICIT

SPENDING FOR DECADES, AND IT

HAS MADE THE COUNTRY

POORER.

Reporter: AMERICA'S

EXPLODING WELFARE STATE AND

HUGE DEFICIT IS STARTING TO

LOOK SO EUROPEAN THAT THE

ECONOMIST MAGAZINE DRESSED

UP PRESIDENT OBAMA IN A

FRENCH SHIRT, AND SPEAKER

BOEHNER IN LEADERHOSEN.

NOW THE WHITE HOUSE HAS

HIRED A FRENCH ECONOMIST TO

HELP FORM ECONOMIC POLICY.

FRANCE DOES SOME THINGS

WELL; ECONOMICS MAY NOT BE

ON THE LIST.

FRANCE'S BLOATED WELFARE

STATE HAS BEEN DUBBED A

TICKING TIME BOMB.

IT HAS CRIPPLED THE

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT.

JACOB IS A FREE ECONOMIST IN

FRANCEMENT.

> FRANCE.

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL PEOPLE

IN FRANCE ARE HEADING OUT.

THEY ARE GOING TO LONDON.

THEY'RE GOING TO ASIA.

THEY'RE GOING TO THE UNITED

STATES BECAUSE THEY WANT TO

ACTUALLY ACHIEVE SOMETHING,

WHICH IS NOT IMMEDIATELY

TAKEN AWAY BY A STATE THAT

SAYS YOU HAVE, THERE FOR I

TAKE IT.

Reporter: AND THE

WEALTHY ARE ALSO FLEEING

OVER HIGH TAXES.

HERE IS FRENCH ACTOR GERARD

DEPARDEAUX SHOWING OFF HIS

NEW RUSSIAN PASSPORT.

FRANCE HAS ONE OF THE LOWEST

NUMBER OF MILLIONAIRES PER

CAPITA.

A CLUE COULD BE FOUND IN A

NEWSPAPER CLIPPING, OVER A

PHOTO OF FRANCE'S WEALTHIEST

MAN WHO SAID HE WOULD FLEE.

THE GOVERNMENT SECTOR OF THE

FRENCH ECONOMY IS LARGER

THAN THE PRIVATE SECTOR.

MOST FRENCH ARE DEPENDENT ON

THE STATE, NOT ONLY FOR

BENEFITS, BUT FOR JOBS.

THREE OUT OF FOUR FRENCH

PEOPLE SAY THEIR DREAM IS TO

GET A GOVERNMENT JOB SOME

DAY.

PHIL NICKY SAYS FRANCE IS

ADDICTED TO GOVERNMENT

SPENDING LIKE A DRUG.

WE TURN TO GOVERNMENT

SPENDING AS A SOLUTION FOR

OUR PROBLEMS.

BUSINESSMEN ARE TELLING US

THEY CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.

THE SYSTEM WE HAVE IS

VERY GENEROUS, BUT IT IS

VERY EXPENSIVE, AND WE

SIMPLY CANNOT PAY FOR IT.

Reporter: THIS FRENCH

ECONOMIST WARNS WHEN THE

STATE STOPS TAKING CARE OF

PEOPLE, THEY STOP TAKING

CARE OF EACH OTHER.

THE LEVELS OF CHARITABLE

GIVING IN FRANCE AND OTHER

WESTERN EUROPEAN NATIONS ARE

MUCH LOWER THAN THE UNITED

STATES.

SO IT KILLS THE NATURAL

MOVE FOR SOLIDARITY OF

INDIVIDUALS.

AND NO WONDER WHY WE ARE NOT

A VERY PHI PHILANTHROPIC

COUNTRY.

Reporter: IT ALLOWS

POLITICIANS TO OFFICIALLY

OFFER VOTES BY PAYING FOR

BENEFITS WITH MONEY THEY

DON'T HAVE.

AND THEY WON'T BE AROUND

WHEN THE SYSTEM GOES BROKE.

THE FRENCH HAVE ALMOST

GUARANTEED THAT THE FUTURE

WILL BE POOR.

AND THAT FUTURE IS COMING

VERY SOON, VERY SOON.

MORE AND MORE COMPANIES ARE

DYING, SO THERE IS MORE AND

MORE DESTRUCTION OF JOBS.

THERE IS A GROWING

AWARENESS THAT WE'RE HEADING

RIGHT INTO THE WALL, WHICH

IS CALLED REALITY.

Reporter: AN EXCELLENT

QUESTION IS WHY AMERICAN

LEADERS WOULD WANT TO

EMULATE FRANCE, OR EUROPE,

FOR THAT MATTER.

POLLS SHOW MOST DEMOCRATS

NOW HAVE A FAVORABLE VIEW OF

SOCIALISM, AND IT IS VERY

POPULAR AMONG AMERICA'S

COLLEGE-AGED YOUNG PEOPLE.

MAYBE THEY SHOULD HAVE A

TALK WITH A FRENCH

ECONOMIST.

DALE HERD, CBN NEWS, PARIS.

Pat: SOME YEARS AGO I

WAS IN FRANCE, AND I HAD

DINNER WITH A BUSINESSMAN

AND HIS WIFE.

AND HE SHARED WITH ME THAT

THEY HAVE TAXES THAT

ACTUALLY CAN TAKE OVER 100%

OF YOUR INCOME.

AND WHEN HE BEGAN TO TICK

OFF THE NUMBER OF TAXES THAT

THEY HAVE, IT IS JUST

APPALLING.

AND I SAID TO HIM, WHY DON'T

YOU GO TO MONTE CARLO.

WHY DON'T YOU GO TO

SWITZERLAND.

AND HE SAID, I'M FRENCH, AND

MY FAMILY IS FRENCH, AND I'M

SORT OF STAYING WITH IT.

THE REASON THEY CAN'T HIGHER

FULL-TIME WORKERS IS BECAUSE

THE BENEFITS ARE SO SCOSH

EXORBITANT THAT IF SOMEBODY

IS LAID OFF FROM WORK, THEY

KEEP HITTING THE PAYROLL

MONTH AFTER MONTH AFTER

MONTH, AND THE UNEMPLOYMENT

RATE IS SKY-HIGH.

THE AMAZING THING THAT TOOK

PLACE WAS RIOTING IN THE

STREETS SEVERAL YEARS AGO

BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO RAISE

THE RETIREMENT AGE A YEAR OR

TWO.

AND THE YOUNG PEOPLE, THE

PEOPLE 18, 19, 20, 21,

RIOTED BECAUSE THEY WERE

CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN WHEN THEY ARE 65.

Terry: DO YOU THINK

THAT IS WHY THEY RIOTED?

OR DO YOU THINK THEY WERE SO

FRUSTRATED WITH THE SYSTEM

IN GENERAL?

Pat: THEY WEREN'T

FRUSTRATED WITH THE SYSTEM.

THEY THINK THE SYSTEM IS THE

WAY OF MAKING MONEY.

Terry: AT WHAT POINT

DOES IT IMPLODE?

Pat: IT IS GOING TO

IMPLODE, BUT FOR SOME REASON

THEY DON'T SEE IT.

JUST LIKE HERE IN AMERICA.

OVER 50% OF PEOPLE IN

AMERICA TAKE SOME BENEFIT

FROM THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT.

WHEN YOU HAVE A SITUATION

LIKE THAT, PEOPLE DON'T WANT

TO GIVE UP THEIR GOODIES.

IT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS.

WE'LL CONTINUE TO GO DOWN

THE ROAD.

AND IT IS APPALLING DEBT

THAT WE HAVE.

AND SOONER OR LATER,

INTEREST RATES ARE GOING TO

GO UP, AND WHEN THEY GO UP,

THE AMOUNT OF MONEY TO

SERVICE THE DEBT IS GOING TO

CROWD OUT EVERY OTHER SOCIAL

SERVICE THAT THE GOVERNMENT

PERFORMS.

IT IS GOING TO BE HORRIBLE.

AND YET FOR SOME REASON, WE

KEEP PLAYING THESE LITTLE

GAMES, LIKE LET'S HAVE A

FISCAL CLIFF, AND LET'S HAVE

A FIGHT THEN ON THE BUDGET

CAP AND THE SPENDING CAP AND

THIS CAP AND THE OTHER CAP.

AND THEY JUST PLAY GAMES

INSTEAD OF SAYING LET'S

HONESTLY GET TOGETHER AND

ADDRESS THE PROBLEM.

THEY REFUSE TO DO IT.

WHEW!

SO MUCH FOR ME.

Terry: FRUSTRATING.

WELL, UP NEXT, ROCK LEGEND

SCOTT STAPP REVEALS THE DEAL

HE MADE WITH GOD.

I WAS PRAYING TO GOD.

I PROMISE I'LL STAY TRUE TO

YOU IN MY WORD AND THE

LYRICS THAT I WRITE.

JUST MAKE US A SUCCESS.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

DEAL LED TO THE BREAKUP OF

THE BAND CREED.

Pat: IN 1 1995, SCOTT

STAPP AND A FEW OF HIS

FRIENDS FOUNDED THE ROCK

BAND KNOWN AS CREED.

AS LEAD VOCALIST AND

LYRICIST, SCOTT TOOK THE

BAND TO SUPER STARDOM.

BUT ON HIS RISE, SCOTT

FORGOT HIS ROOT AND THE

INSPIRATION ABOUT HIS

AWARD-WINNING SONG.

WE TALKED TO SCOTT ABOUT THE

NIGHT HE FELL 40 FEET AND

THE EPIPHANY THAT FOLLOWED.

Reporter: IN THE LATE

'90s, CREED BECAME ONE OF

THE MOST POPULAR ROCK BANDS

IN THE WORLD.

*

Reporter: FANS WERE

ENTHRALLED BY CREED'S NEW

BLEND OF ROCK, BUT IT WAS

THE LYRICS, PENNED BY LEAD

SINGER SCOTT STAPP, THAT

TOUCHED THEM MOST

PROFOUNDLY.

I WOULD FEEL A CONNECTION

WITH GOD WHEN I WROTE THE

WORDS.

AND THEN WHEN I WOULD SING

THE SONGS, LEARNING THE

SONG, I WOULD FEEL THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

Reporter: THE BAND GOT

ITS START ON THE CAMPUS OF

FLORIDA STATE.

BUT IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG

BEFORE CREED WAS AN

INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS.

* CAN YOU TAKE ME HIGHER

Reporter: THEIR FIRST

ALBUM, "MILE IN PRISON" SOON

WENT PLATINUM.

WHAT WAS THAT LIKE FOR YOU

WHEN IT STARTED HAPPENING AT

SUCH A DIZZYING PACE?

I ENJOYED IT.

IN MY VIEW, THAT'S WHAT WAS

SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN.

IRONICALLY, ALTHOUGH I WAS

LIVING THIS LIFESTYLE AND

CAUGHT UP IN THE MENTALITY

OF ROCK AND ROLL SUPER

STARDOM, WHEN I WAS ALONE

AND WRITING, I WOULD PRAY TO

GOD, PRAY TO MY FATHER, AND

MAKE DEALS.

AND ONE OF THE DEALS THAT I

MADE, FATHER, I PROMISE I

WILL STAY TRUE TO YOU IN MY

WORD AND THE LYRICS THAT I

WRITE.

JUST MAKE US A SUCCESS.

Reporter: IT WOULD SEEM

THAT GOD ANSWERED HIS

PRAYERS.

CREED RELEASED TWO MORE

ALBUMS, "HUMAN CLAY," AND

"WEATHERED," AISLEED,"

WHICH ALSO WENT PLATINUM.

BUT BY THEN, SCOTT HAD

BECOME ADDICTED TO ALCOHOL

AND PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.

HUNDRED HE WAS FIGHTING AN

INTERNAL PROBLEM THAT WOULD

TEAR HIM APART.

I WAS A CHRISTIAN, AND

RUNNING FROM THE BRAND OF

CHRISTIANITY I WAS RAISED

ON.

Reporter: AS A YOUNG

BOY, HE LEARNED FROM HIS

GRANDFATHER ABOUT A LOVING

GOD.

BUT AFTER HIS PARENTS

DIVORCED AND HIS MOM

REMARRIED, SCOTT LOOKED TO A

NEW SOURCE OF SPIRITUAL

GUIDANCE, HIS STEPFATHER,

STEVE STAPP.

HE WAS VERY MILITARY, AND

THE PUNISHMENTS BEGAN TO GET

MORE SEVERE, ROUTINE.

GOING INTO BEING LOCKED IN

MY ROOM FOR A MONTH, BEING

FED UNDER A DOOR OR CRACKED

THE DOOR.

AND GETTING WHIPPED, BEAT.

EVERY MONDAY NIGHT.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

DO WITH THAT INFORMATION

THAT YOU'RE GETTING, THIS

CONSTANT BACK AND FORTH.

HE IS NOT A GOD OF LOVE.

HOW DO YOU PROCESS THAT.

I SAID, GOD, I CAN'T DO IT.

I JUST CAN'T DO IT.

SO I RAN FROM IT.

Reporter: AFTER HIGH

SCHOOL, SCOTT WENT TO

COLLEGE, WHERE HE DISCOVERED

A WHOLE NEW WORLD, ONE THAT

INCLUDED MARIJUANA, ALCOHOL,

AND SEX.

DID YOU FIND THAT THIS

SOMEHOW MEDICATED THESE

FEELINGS OF CONFUSION AND

ANGER YOU HAD?

IT MOST DEFINITELY DID.

I WANTED THIS ACCEPTANCE I

THOUGHT EVERYBODY ELSE HAD.

Reporter: HE OFTEN

DEVELOPED A PASSION FOR

MUSIC, AND LATER HELP FORM

CREED.

IT BECAME AN OBSESSION,

IF YOU WILL.

AND IT WAS MY WAY OUT.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

LONG BEFORE SCOTT WAS A

SUPER STAR.

IN THE MIDST OF THIS, HE

MARRIED AND HAD A SON,

JAGGER.

BUT HE AND HIS WIFE SOON

DIVORCED.

THE DEMANDS OF BEING A SUPER

STAR AND A SINGLE DAD PUSHED

HIM INTO DEPRESSION AND MORE

DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE.

MY BEGAN TO FEEL IT

DIDN'T HAVE THE ENERGY.

I DIDN'T WANT TO GET OUT OF

BED.

Reporter: WHERE WAS GOD

IN THIS AT THIS POINT IN MY

TIME.

ONLY WHEN I WOULD SIT

DOWN TO WRITE MY LYRICS FOR

MY ALBUM.

BUT IT WAS IRONIC THAT EVERY

TIME I SAT DOWN FOR A SONG

THAT WOULD HAVE A SPIRITUAL

ISSUE OR WRESTLING WITH MY

FAITH, IT WOULD ALWAYS BE

RESOLVED AT THE END.

Reporter: HIS

FAITH-BASED LYRICS LED MANY

TO BELIEVE THAT CREED WAS A

CHRISTIAN BAND, BUT THEY

WEREN'T, AND HIS BAND MATES

RESENTED IT.

SOON IT WAS CLEAR THAT THE

BAND COULD NO LONGER STAY

TOGETHER.

SCOTT TOOK SOME TIME OFF TO

CLEAR HIS HEAD AND GIVE UP

THE DRUGS.

A YEAR LATER, HE MET JACLYN,

WHO WAS A DEVOTED

CHRISTIAN.

FOR A WHILE, HE MANAGED TO

STAY SOBER, BUT THE

DEPRESSION RETURNED, AND,

AGAIN, HE TRIED TO WARD OFF

THE DISPAIR WITH ALCOHOL AND

DRUGS.

BUT JACLYN DID SOMETHING NO

ONE HAD DONE BEFORE.

SHE SHOWED ME GRACE.

SHE DID TREMENDOUS GRACE AND

COMPASSION.

Reporter: WHAT DOES

THAT MEAN TO YOU, THAT GOD

LOVED YOU ENOUGH TO SEND

SOMEONE TO EXTEND THAT GRACE

TO YOU AT THAT TIME IN YOUR

LIFE?

IT MEANS EVERYTHING TO

ME.

I DIDN'T EVEN UNDERSTAND

IT.

I WOULD SEE HER AND SEE HER

MOTHER AND HER FAMILY, AND I

WAS JUST DRAWN TO

SOMETHING.

Reporter: AFTER ANOTHER

NIGHT OF BINGE DRINKING AND

DRUGS, SCOTT CHECKED INTO A

MIAMI HOTEL.

BUT HE BECAME PARANOID AND

THOUGHT THE POLICE WERE

COMING TO GET HIM.

SO HE CLIMBED ON HIS

BALCONY, TRYING TO ESCAPE TO

THE FLOOR BELOW.

HE LOST HIS FOOTING AND FELL

40 FEET.

INEVITABLY I LAND, AND

LAND IN A LEDGE SPECIFICALLY

DESIGNED TO CATCH SEAGULL

WASTE.

I REALLY FELT, EVEN IN THAT

MOMENT, THAT'S WHERE I

BELONGED.

AND IT WAS A REAL EPIPHANY,

AS I LAID THERE AND CRIED

OUT TO GOD AND ASKED FOR

HELP.

Reporter: AMAZINGLY,

SCOTT SURVIVED THE FALL,

EVEN THOUGH HE HAD SEVERE

HEAD TRAUMA AND OTHER

INJURIES.

HE WOKE UP LATER AT THE

HOSPITAL.

I OPENED MY EYES, AND

THEY WERE BLURRY, AND I SEE

TWO ANGELS.

AND I'M KIND OF DOING THIS,

AND IT IS JACLYN AND HER

MOTHER, AND THEY'RE WASHING

MY FEET.

THEY'RE WASHING THE DIRT AND

THE BLOOD AND EVERYTHING OFF

MY FEET, CRYINGING, SOBBING,

AND PRAYING.

AND I GUESS GOOSE BUMPS

TALKING ABOUT IT.

IF THERE WAS ANY DOUBT WHO

THESE WOMEN WERE AND WHAT

THEY MEANT IN MY LIFE, AND

I'LL GO TO MY GRAVE FEELING

THIS, THAT THEY WERE SENT.

THEY WERE ANGELS IN MY LIFE,

SENT FOR ME.

THERE WAS NO DOUBT AFTER

THAT MOMENT.

Reporter: FINALLY SCOTT

REALIZED IT WAS TIME TO

CHANGE.

WITH THE HELP OF JACLYN, HER

MOTHER AND GOD, SCOTT GOT

OFF THE DRUGS AND HEALED

EMOTIONALLY.

HE AND JACLYN MARRIED AND

NOW HAVE A BEAUTIFUL BLENDED

FAMILY.

SCOTT HAS SINCE RELEASED A

SOLO ALBUM AND A BOOK ABOUT

THIS JOURNEY CALLED

"SINNER'S CREED."

THE REDEMPTION AS I FEEL

IT AND UNDERSTAND IT IS GOD

TAKING THIS MESS THAT I HAD

BECOME AND CREATING IT AND

TURNING IT INTO A MESSAGE.

GOD IS THERE.

AND IF MY LIFE CAN BE AN

EXAMPLE OF GOD TAKING THE

UNLOVABLE, AND GOD CAN LOVE

ANYBODY, ANYBODY, AND YOU'VE

JUST GOT TO COME.

YOU'VE GOT TO SURRENDER.

Pat: HE TOOK SOMETHING

AND MADE IT BEAUTIFUL.

HE MAKES SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

OUT OF THE MESS IN YOUR

LIFE.

WHAT ARE YOU DONE?

HAVE YOU BEEN ON DRUGS?

HAVE YOU BEEN HOOKED ON

PORNOGRAPHY?

HAVE YOU BE SEXUAL PROM

PROMISCUOUS?

HAVE YOU LIED?

HAVE YOU STOLEN?

HAVE YOU BEEN IN PRISON?

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

GOD SAYS, LISTEN, WILL YOU

GIVE IT TO ME?

MY DESIRE, SAYS THE LORD, IS

TO REDEEM YOU.

I WANT YOU TO BE PART OF MY

HEAVENLY KINGDOM.

I WANT YOU TO LIVE IN

PARADISE WITH ME AND ENJOY

THE PLEASURES THAT I HAVE

ALREADY PREPARED FOR YOU.

I'VE GOT THEM ALL SET.

AND THERE IS PLENTY OF

ROOM.

JESUS SAID, EN M, IN MY

FATHER'S HOUSE, THERE ARE

MANY MANSIONS.

IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD

HAVE TOLD YOU.

I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR

YOU.

THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU.

YES, THERE IS A PLACE FOR

YOU.

EVEN THOUGH YOUR MOTHER AND

FATHER MAY THROW YOU OUT,

GOD WILL TAKE YOU IN.

AND ALL HE SAYS TO YOU RIGHT

NOW, WILL YOU CALL UPON THE

NAME OF THE LORD.

I WAS READING IN JOB TODAY,

AND IT SAYS, THOSE WHO CALL

UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD

WILL BE SAVED.

THOSE WHO CALL UPON THE NAME

OF JEHOVAH GOD.

WOULD YOU CALL ON HIM RIGHT

NOW?

LET HIM BRING YOU TO

PARADISE.

WHY FIGHT IT?

IT'S GOOD.

RIGHT NOW, WHEREVER YOU ARE

ARE, JUST STOP WHAT YOU'RE

DOING, HUSBAND, WIFE,

BOYFRIEND, GIRLFRIEND, STOP

FOR A MOMENT.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD

AND I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH

ME THESE SIMPLE WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU DIED FOR

ME AND I KNOW YOU LOVE ME.

BUT, LORD, YOU KNOW

EVERYTHING THAT IS WRONG IN

MY LIFE.

YOU KNOW THE THINGS I'VE

DONE.

YOU KNOW THE FILTH, YOU KNOW

THE GARBAGE, YOU KNOW ALL

THAT IS THERE.

IT'S LIKE A CESSPOOL.

BUT, LORD, I BELIEVE YOU

LOVE ME ANYHOW.

AND SO I BRING THE ASHES OF

MY FAILURE, AND I GIVE THEM

TO YOU.

AND I SAY, LORD, MAKE

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL IN MY

LIFE.

I TURN IT OVER TO YOU.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I'M

YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE COME

IN MY HEART.

LORD, FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED

JUST NOW WITH ME, I ASK THAT

YOU WOULD ANOINT THEM WITH

YOUR HOLY SPIRIT.

COME IN POWER, AND TOUCH

THEM IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WHAT A WONDERFUL THING THAT

HAS HAPPENED TO YOU.

I'M SO

GLAD TO HEAR

IT.

AND I WANT YOU TO DO

SOMETHING.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING

BECAUSE YOU NEED TO START.

AND SOME TIME AGO, I GOT

INTO OUR AUDIO ROOM AND I

MADE A COMPACT DISC.

IT IS ABOUT 73 MINUTES

LONG.

IT TALKS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN YOU'RE BORN AGAIN, WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU ACCEPT

JESUS, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

YOUR LIFE IS TRANSFORMED,

AND WHAT DO YOU DO IN CASE

YOU FALL OR YOU SIN, WHAT

HAPPENS?

IT IS ALL HERE, AND I'LL

GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

I WANT YOU TO CALL.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

IT WON'T COST YOU A THINK.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT,

I PRAYED WITH THAT GUY ON

TV, AND I'VE GIVEN MY HEART

TO THE LORD.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF

PEOPLE ARE CALLING RIGHT

NOW.

WE'VE GOT TELEPHONES

AVAILABLE.

NO PROBLEM.

IF THE LINE, FOR ANY REASON

IS BUSY, PLEASE BE PATIENT

AND CALL BACK.

WE'LL BE HERE FOR YOU ALL

DAY LONG.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO NOW TO TERRY.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, ONE MINUTE THIS WOMAN

WAS BAKING BREAD; THE NEXT,

SHE WAS RIGH RILING ON THE

FLOOR IN PAIN.

PLUS, COMING UP, WE'LL BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS SO DON'T GO AWAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

OPPONENTS OF GAY MARRIAGE

ARE DISAPPOINTED THE

WASHINGTON NATIONAL

CATHEDRAL WILL NOW PERFORM

SAME-SEX WEDDINGS.

THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH OANTS

OPERATES THE CATHEDRAL, AND

HE SAYS THE DOMINATION HAS

BEEN MOVING AWAY FROM

CHRISTIAN ORTHODOXI FOR

YEARS.

THE SPOKESMAN FOR THE

NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF

MARRIAGE SAYS THIS WEEK'S

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE CHURCH

SHOWS MARRIAGE IS REALLY AN

ALL OR NOTHING DEAL.

AND HE SAYS AMERICANS MUST

ASK IF THEY WANT TO

FUNDAMENTALLY GIVE UP

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

SCHOOL OFFICIALS IN ONE OHIO

TOWN ARE REFUSING TO REMOVE

A LARGE PORTRAIT OF JESUS ON

DISPLAY AT A MIDDLE SCHOOL.

THE PAINTING IS JUST LIKE

THIS ONE, AND IT WAS DONATED

BY A GROUP OF STUDENTS TO

JACKSON MIDDLE SCHOOL IN

1947.

THE FREEDOM FROM RELIGION

FOUNDATION IS DEMANDING THAT

THE SCHOOL REMOVE IT.

THEY CALL THE PICTURE AN

UNCONSTITUTIONAL ENDORSEMENT

OF CHRISTIANITY.

BUT ABOUT 300 PEOPLE SHOWED

UP TO SUPPORT THE PAINTING

AT A SCHOOL BOARD MEETING

TUESDAY NIGHT.

THE DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT

SAYS IT HAS HISTORICAL

SIGNIFICANCE AND WILL

REMAIN.

THE PORTRAIT HANGS IN THE

SCHOOL'S HALL OF HONOR,

AMONG NUMEROUS OTHER FACES.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: BANANA BREAD, I

DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I

LOVE IT.

SO DOES THE WOMAN IN OUR

NEXT STORY.

HER NAME IS JANINE, AND

SHE'LL NEVER FORGET HOW

MAKING A LOAF OF BANANA

BREAD LED TO A MIRACLE.

WATCH THIS.

Reporter: JANINE

DECIDED TO MAKE A LOAF OF

BANANA BREAD, AND STARTED

GATHERING THE INGREDIENTS

SHE NEEDED.

I WAS MOVING THINGS OUT

OF THE CUPBOARDS AND SO I

STEPPED FORWARD, AND TRIPPED

OVER THE STOOL, AND WENT

FLYING INTO THE CUPBOARD AND

WAS DOWN ON THE RUG IN A LOT

OF PAIN.

Reporter: SHE WAS HOME

ALONE AND HAD NO ONE TO HELP

HER.

SO I KICKED OFF MY SHOES

SO THAT I COULD PUSH MY WAY

BACKWARDS.

AND WHEN I GOT TO THE STOOL

AT THE DOORWAY, I LEANED ON

IT UNTIL I COULD STAND UP.

AND I VERY SLOWLY WALKED

BECAUSE IT WAS HARD TO WALK,

EVEN.

I WAS OUT OF BREATH.

I HAD GOTTEN SHOCKED, I

GUESS, FROM THE PAIN.

Reporter: SHE CALLED

HER SON, HE WHAT AN E.R.

NURSE.

HE TOOK HER TO THE HOSPITAL,

WHERE X-RAYS SHOWED HE

FRACTURED HER HUMERUS AND

HER LEFT SHOULDER HURT.

I COULDN'T MOVE FOR A

WHILE.

Reporter: THE PAIN MADE

IT IMPOSSIBLE TO DO THE

SIMPLEST THINGS.

I COULD NOT GET OFF OF

THE CHAIR.

MY HUSBAND WOULD HAVE TO SIT

NEXT TO ME AND PUT HIS ARM

BEHIND MY BACK AND PUSH ME

FORWARD SO I COULD GET OFF

THE CHAIR.

WASHING YOUR HANDS AFTER YOU

GO TO THE BATHROOM.

I COULD ONLY WASH ONE HAND.

I LEARNED HOW TO WASH -- YOU

WOULD BE SURPRISED THE

THINGS YOU LEARN.

OF COURSE I COULDN'T GET --

DO ANYTHING WITH MY HAIR.

I MEAN, THERE IS SO MUCH YOU

CAN'T DO WHEN YOU CAN'T MOVE

ANYTHING.

Reporter: SHE WENT TO

PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR ALMOST

A YEAR.

BUT THAT DIDN'T HELP MUCH.

MY ARM WOULD ONLY GO UP

SO FAR, AND THAT WAS IT.

I COULD NEVER GET MY ELBOW

EVEN WITH MY SHOULDER.

AND THAT'S DIFFICULT.

Reporter: ONE DAY

JANINE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

TERRY SAID, YOU HAD A

FALL AND IT'S YOUR

SHOULDER.

AND IT'S NOT THE ROTATOR

CUFF, BUT IT'S IN THE JOINT

ITSELF.

AND SHE SAID, MOVE YOUR ARM

NOW.

AND I REALLY CAN'T SAY I

CONSCIOUSLY DID IT.

AND I JUST WENT -- AND I

WENT, IT IS AMAZING.

AND I WENT HOLLERING FOR MY

HUSBAND AND I'M CLAPPING MY

HANDS AND SAYING, IT'S ME!

Reporter: SINCE THEN,

JANINE HASN'T HAD ANY

PROBLEMS WITH HER SHOULDER.

THE LORD IS VERY GOOD.

I CAN DO MY HAIR.

I LIKE TO BRAID IT IN THE

BACK AND PIN IT UP.

I CAN HANG LAUNDRY.

I LIKE TO HANG MY LAUNDRY

OUT.

AND I COULDN'T BEFORE

BECAUSE YOU CAN'T HANG

LAUNDRY ONE-HANDED.

WATCH FOR YOUR MIRACLE

BECAUSE GOD DOESN'T LOVE ME

ANYMORE THAN HE LOVES YOU.

IF HE DID THIS FOR ME, HE IS

GOING TO DO SOMETHING FOR

YOU THAT YOU NEED.

Terry: THAT IS EXACTLY

RIGHT.

WHAT IS YOUR NEED TODAY.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU HAVE

BEEN CRYING OUT ABOUT.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WOULD

LIKE GOD TO DO FOR YOU

TODAY?

HE SAYS COME AND ASK ME.

YOU HAVE NOT BECAUSE YOU ASK

NOT.

TODAY WE HOPE YOUR FAITH IS

BUILT BY JANINE'S STORIES.

AND WE HAVE SOME OTHER

STORIES TO ENCOURAGE YOU.

Pat: SHARE, PLEASE.

Terry: THIS IS ABOUT

BARBARA, WHO LIVES IN

FLORIDA.

SHE HAD A CYST REMOVED FROM

THE THYROID AREA OF HER

THROAT.

OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF

YEARS, SHE BEGAN

EXPERIENCING SEVERE PAIN

WHEN SHE SWALLOWED.

HER DOCTOR PERFORMED AN

ULTRASOUND ON HER THROAT,

AND DETERMINED THAT THE SCAR

TISSUE FROM THE FORMER CYST

REMOVAL SURGERY WAS THE

SOURCE OF THAT PAIN.

SHE HAPPENED TO BE WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM ONE DAY.

SHE HEARD YOU, PAT, SAY

THIS.

THERE IS A GROWTH IN YOUR

THROAT.

IT IS NOT GOITER, BUT IT

FEELS LIKE A GOITER.

HE SAID LAY YOUR HAND ON

YOUR THROAT AND YOU ARE

BEING HEALED BY JESUS.

SHE HAS NOT HAD ANY PAIN

SINCE THEN.

Pat: I STAND IN AWE.

I DON'T KNOW BARBARA.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN HER IN MY

LIFE.

BUT GOD KNOWS HER.

AND GOD KNOWS YOU.

THERE IS A LADY NAME STELLA

IN CALIFORNIA.

SHE BEGAN HAVING PROBLEMS

WITH HER HEARING, AND HER

DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HER WITH

ARTHRITIS AND PROBLEMS IN

HER INNER EAR.

LAST OCTOBER SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

SHE HEARD TERRY GIVE THIS

WORD.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE WHO

HAS AN EAR ISSUE, WHERE YOU

HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO HEAR

OUT OF YOUR RIGHT EAR.

AND IT IS JUST OPENING UP

RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A FUNNY

CRINKLING, CRACKING SOUND IN

YOUR EAR, AND GOD JUST

HEALED YOU.

SHE PUT HER HAND ON HER

EARS, AND GUESS WHAT?

HEARING COMPLETELY

RESTORED.

YOU SAY THEY'RE SPECIAL.

SURE, THEY'RE SPECIAL, AND

SO ARE YOU.

GOD'S PEOPLE ARE ALL

SPECIAL.

AND GOD WANTS TO DO

SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOU.

HE LOVES YOU AND HE IS

WAITING FOR US TO DECLARE

THAT WORD.

NOW, TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO JOIN HANDS ON THIS

PROGRAM.

AND I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO

JOIN WITH US.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

THE GOD WE SERVE.

SO GET OVER HERE SO I CAN

TAKE HANDS OF THIS DEAR

LADY.

FATHER, TERRY AND I JOIN

HANDS TOGETHER.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

YOU.

THERE IS A GROIN PROBLEM, IT

IS A HERNIA, AND THAT THING

IS GOING BACK INSIDE THE

ANGENAL RING, AND FLESH AND

TENDONS ARE GROWING SO YOU

WON'T HAVE THAT HERNIA

ANYMORE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A TOOTH PROBLEM ON

ONE SIDE OF YOUR MOUTH, WAY

IN THE BACK, AND THAT TOOTH

HAS ACTUALLY TURNED BLACK.

YOU DON'T HAVE MONEY TO GO

TO THE DENTIST.

GOD IS GOING TO PROVIDE THAT

FOR YOU.

IT IS GOING TO COME SOON.

Pat: THE LOWER BACK --

YOU TWISTED YOUR BACK AND

SOMETHING KIND OF SNAPPED OR

POPPED BACK THERE.

IF YOU CAN REACH THAT FAR,

PUT YOUR HAND BACK ON THE

LOWER BACK, AND JUST BELIEVE

THE LORD IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE AN INCREDIBLE

TENDERNESS AROUND YOUR

NAVAL.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE CAUSE

OF IT IS.

YOU CAN ALMOST NOT WEAR

APPROPRIATE CLOTHING, BUT

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

NOW.

Pat: SOME OF YOU ARE

CRYING OUT FOR MONEY.

ONE FOR $50,000, AND ONE FOR

$75,000.

GOD IS TAKING CARE OF YOUR

NEED.

SOMEONE YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT

YOUR MORTGAGE, AND GOD IS

GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO STAY

IN YOUR HOME.

THE POWER OF GOD IS MOVING

THROUGH RIGHT NOW.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE

BLESSED IN YOUR INVESTMENTS,

IN YOUR RETIREMENT, IN YOUR

401K, AND YOU'RE I.R.A., AND

GOD IS BLESSING YOU NOW

BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU, IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

PRAISE THE LORD.

GO TO YOUR PHONES AND CALL.

IF YOU NEED FURTHER PRAYER,

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, WE

HAVE YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

ROXI SAYS, "I HAVE TWO BOYS,

20 AND 17, WHO I TRY TO HELP

BUILD RELATIONS WITH

CHRISTIAN GIRLS.

MY BOYS ARE STARTING TO

RESENT WHAT I'M DOING.

IS IT WRONG?

AND IF SO, HOW DO I STOP?"

WE'RE GOING TO ANSWER ROXI'S

QUESTION WHEN WE "BRING IT

ON."

Terry: WELL, FOR MOST

OF US, IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE

HAVING TO GO TO BED HUNGRY,

OR EVEN WORSE, SENDING OUR

CHILDREN TO BED WITHOUT

FOOD.

BUT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THE

MOTHER IN OUR NEXT STORY

FACED.

FOR THREE NIGHTS IN A ROW.

Reporter: IT WAS THE

THIRD NIGHT SINCE SHE SENT

HER CHILDREN TO BED WITH

NOTHING TO EAT.

AND SHE HAD NOTHING LEFT IN

THE KITCHEN TO FEED THEM THE

NEXT DAY.

TEARS FILLED HER EYES AND

PRAYERS FOR HELP WERE ON HER

LIPS.

MY HEART BROKE WHEN I HAD

NOTHING TO GIVE THEM.

Reporter: EVEN THE

CHILDREN PRAYED FOR AN END

TO THEIR STOMACH PAINS.

I PRAYED THAT WE NEVER GO

TO SLEEP WITHOUT EATING.

Reporter: OLGA'S

ECONOMIC SITUATION HAD

GOTTEN CRITICAL WHEN HER

HUSBAND WENT FAR FROM HOME

IN SEARCH OF A JOB.

OLGA COULD NEITHER READ OR

WRITE, SO IT WAS HARD FOR

HER TO FIND WORK.

OCCASIONALLY A NEIGHBOR HAD

PITY ON THE FAMILY AND GAVE

THEM FOOD.

MY NEIGHBOR GAVE US

SEVERAL HOTDOGS, AND I

PREPARED THEM FOR LUNCH.

I WAS CRYING AS I THANKED

GOD FOR THE GIFT.

Reporter: ONE DAY

OLGA'S PASTOR CAME TO VISIT

AND TOLD HER ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING."

WE QUICKLY GAVE HER THE

MATERIALS TO START A SMALL

BUSINESS, MAKING AND SELLING

FOOD.

"OPERATION BLESSING" GAVE

ME A LOT OF THINGS.

WHEN I SOLD THEM, I COULDN'T

BELIEVE IT.

Reporter: THAT

SAME

DAY, OLGA MADE A BATCH OF

TORTILLAS AND TAMALIS, AND

THEN SHE AND HER SONS SOLD

OUT OF EVERYTHING SHE HAD

MADE.

TODAY HER TAMALES ARE VERY

POPULAR, AND HER CHILDREN,

WELL, THEY NEVER HAVE TO GO

TO BED HUNGRY AGAIN.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR HELPING MY

MOM.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: REACHING OUT TO

PEOPLE IN NEED IS EXACTLY

WHAT DO, ANDHAPPENS BECAUSE

YOU CARE ENOUGH TO GIVE.

WE ARE SAYING THERE ARE SO

MANY PEOPLE IN NID NEED

AROUND THE WORLD, SO HELP US

GIVE THEM NOT JUST A

HANDOUT, BUT A HAND UP.

IT 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH TO JOINUS.

AND THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF

US WHO ARE SAYING WE'RE OUT

TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

WE'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU JOIN

US.

CALL THAT TOLL-FREE NUMBER

THAT IS ON YOUR SCREEN.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT

OTHERS BY SENDING YOU PAT'S

LATEST TEACHING.

IT'S CALLED "GOD'S PLAN FOR

AMERICA, HOW TO PREPARE FOR

THE DAYS AHEAD."

WE THINK THIS WILL BE A REAL

BLESSING IN YOUR LIFE, AND

YOU'LL HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF

KNOWING YOU'RE MEETING

PEOPLE'S NEEDS PHYSICALLY,

AS WELL AS SPIRITUALLY AS WE

SHARE THE LOVE THE GOD.

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO

SHARE YOUR E-MAILS WITH US.

RALPH SAYS, "MY WIFE LIKES

THESE DREAM CATCHERS IN OUR

HOUSE.

THEY GIVE ME AN UNEASY

FEELING.

SHOULD THEY SAY OR GO?"

FIND OUT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, WE HAVE A

FEW MINUTES LEFT, AND WE

WOULD LIKE TO ANSWER SOME OF

THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS YOU

SENT IN.

THIS FIRST ONE COMES FROM

ROXI, PAT, WHO SAYS, "I HAVE

TWO BOYS, AGES 20 AND 16,

WHOM I REGULARLY HELP BUILD

RELATIONS WITH CHRISTIAN

GIRLS.

MY BOYS ARE STARTING TO

RESENT MY MEDDLING.

IS WHAT I'M DOING WRONG?

AND IF SO, HOW DO I STOP?"

Pat: ROXI, YOU STOP BY

STOPPING.

I USED TO BE A TEENAGED

BOY.

WHEN I WAS 20, I WAS A

SENIOR IN COLLEGE.

AND THE THOUGHT THAT MY

MOTHER WOULD BE SITTING OVER

MY SHOULDER WHILE I WAS

TRYING TO MAKEOUT WITH SOME

GIRL --

Terry: TRYING TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO A CHRISTIAN

ONE ON THE OTHER SIDE.

Pat: I MEAN, FORGET

IT.

LEAVE THOSE BOYS ALONE.

Terry: YOU MIGHT

ACTUALLY PUSH THEM INTO THE

OPPOSITE DIRECTION BY DOING

THAT.

Pat: OF COURSE.

IF YOU'VE BROUGHT THEM UP IN

A CHRISTIAN HOME, LEAVE THEM

TO FIND THEIR OWN MATES.

MY KIDS HAVE DONE EXTREMELY

WELL IN FINDING MATES.

AND MY GRANDCHILDREN HAVE

DON'T EXTRAORDINARILY WELL.

I'M SO PLEASED WITH THE

CHOICE OF HUSBANDS AND

WIVES.

BUT THEY HAVE BEEN TRAINED.

THEY ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE

WITH THE VALUES THEY HAD

GROWING UP.

Terry: YOUR KIDS HAVE

MARRIED WONDERFUL PEOPLE.

Pat: THEY'RE

MARVELOUS.

MY OLDEST DAUGHTER-IN-LAW,

IF I HAD TO DESIGN A

DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, I COULDN'T

HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB.

Terry: SHE IS A FRIEND

OF MINE, AND I WOULD AGREE

WITH YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY.

Pat: SHE IS FABULOUS,

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.

Terry: THIS IS RALPH

WHO SAYS, "MY WIFE LIKES

THESE DREAM CATCHERS AND

HANGS THEM IN OUR HOUSE.

THEY GIVE ME AN UNEASY

FEELING.

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THEIR

MEANING IS.

SHOULD THEY STAY OR GO?"

Pat: HAVING A BUNCH OF

DEAD FEATHERS AROUND YOUR

HOUSE -- GET RID OF THAT

JUNK.

Terry: IT IS ACTUALLY A

CHARM FROM A CULTURE --

Pat: THAT'S

SUPERSTITIOUS.

IF YOU WANT THE ANGELS

AROUND YOU, ASK THE LORD TO

SEND ANGELS AND HE WILL SEND

THE ANGELS.

ANGELS ARE SENT BY GOD TO

MINISTER TO THE HEIRS OF

SALVATION.

Terry: SOMETIMES WE CAN

GET CAUGHT IN SOMETHING LIKE

THAT, WHEN WE SEE SOMETHING

THAT IS FUN.

BUT WHEN YOU FIND OUT WHAT

IS BEHIND IT --

Pat: IF YOU WANT A REAL

LIFE, MY FRIEND, RALPH, HE

IS ABOUT 96, AND RALPH AND I

HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR YEARS

AND YEARS.

HE HAS A STORY, WHEN HE WAS

ITALIAN GROWING UP, THEY

USED TO HANG GARLIC ON THE

DOOR TO KEEP DEMONS AWAY.

IT IS HILARIOUS WHEN SHE

TELLS ABOUT IT BUT IT IS A

BUNCH OF SUPERSTITION, LEAVE

IT ALONE.

Terry: SUSIE SAYS,

"RECENTLY WE LEARNED THAT

ONE OF OUR PASTORS DID

SOMETHING TERRIBLE.

HE SINNED AGAINST HIS FAMILY

AND GOD AND THE CHURCH.

HE CONFESSED HIS SIN AND I

REALLY BELIEVE HE WANTS TO

CHANGE.

HOW DO WE BEGIN THE HEALING

PROCESS, AND WHAT IS THE

BEST WAY TO LET HIM KNOW WE

LOVE HIM BUT DON'T CONDONE

HIS SINS?"

Pat: LET HIM KNOW YOU

LOVE HIM.

APOSTLE PAUL WAS CONCERNED

ABOUT SOMEBODY.

HIS FRIEND WAS SLEEPING WITH

HIS FRIEND'S WIFE.

HE SAID CAST HIM OUT, TURN

HIM OVER TO SATAN THAT HIS

SPIRIT MUST BE SAVED.

AND THEN HE SAID, YOU DID A

GREAT JOB, BUT YOU WANT TO

REDEEM HIM, AND SO REACH OUT

TO HIM NOW AND LET HIM INTO

THE GROUP.

WE DON'T BELIEVE SHUNNING

PEOPLE.

HOW DO YOU DO

IT?

GO TELL HIM YOU LOVE HIM.

BUT, THE BIBLE SAYS, AGAIN,

THAT AN ELDER HAS TO HAVE A

GOOD REPUTATION IN THE

COMMUNITY.

SO SOMEBODY WHO HAS GOT A

BIG, MORAL SIN, IS NOT

NECESSARILY ONE YOU WANT TO

PUT UP THERE.

Terry: HE IS A PASTOR.

Pat: YOU DON'T WANT TO

PUT HIM BACK AS PASTOR.

Terry: THERE ARE

WONDERFUL ORGANIZATIONS THAT

ARE RESTORATION MINISTRIES

FOR PASTORS.

Pat: AND THEY DO A

GREAT JOB.

Terry: LAST QUESTION,

THIS IS JENNIFER: "AFTER 20

YEARS OF MARRIAGE AND TWO

CHILDREN, MY HUSBAND

ABANDONED ME.

HE REFUSED COUNSELLING OF

ANY TIME AND FORCED THE

DIVORCE.

IT IS ALMOST FINAL.

I'M CONSIDERING CHANGING MY

NAME BACK TO MY MAIDEN NAME

BECAUSE EVERY TIME I SAY MY

HUSBAND'S NAME, I FEEL

PAIN.

IS IT OKAY TO CHANGE YOUR

NAME?"

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS

OKAY TO CHANGE YOUR NAME.

WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS HE HAS

SEVERED YOUR MARRIAGE AND

HAS BROKEN YOUR HEART.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IN YOUR

HEART IS TO HAVE

FORGIVENESS, BUT GET ON WITH

YOUR LIFE.

ABSOLUTELY.

HE SEVERED THAT RELATION.

IT IS OVER.

BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS PRAY FOR

A RESTORATION.

GOD IS A GOD OF RESTORATION

AND HEALING.

TOMORROW, LEARN HOW TO TURN

YOUR MARRIAGE AROUND IN 10

DAYS.

AND WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALMS: "BLESSED

BE THE LORD WHO DAILY LOADS

US WITH

HIS

BENEFITS."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
