The 700 Club - January 22, 2013

Russell and Rose have found the secret to getting everything they need – without worry, fretting, or arguing. It took faith to live their adventure…it can transform your life as well. Read Transcript


Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

40 YEARS AGO TODAY THE

SUPREME COURT ISSUED ITS

HISTORIC RULING IN ROE VS.

WADE.

THAT DECISION MADE ABORTION

LEGAL IN ALL 50 STATES.

Terry: AND IT ALSO SET

OFF A MAJOR POLITICAL DEBATE

THAT IS STILL GOING ON

TODAY.

AS CHARLENE ISRAEL REPORTS,

PRO-LIFERS CAN CLAIM SOME

VICTORIES.

ROE VS. WADE IS A PRIVATE

MATTER TO BE DECIDED BY

MOTHER AND DOCTOR IN THE

THREE MONTHS OF PREGNANCY.

Reporter: BOTH SIDES

CLAIM VICTORY, AND NEITHER

ARE BACKING DOWN.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP ON

GOING.

AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO STOP

UNTIL EVERY CHILD SAVED.

I HAVE A VOTE AND AN

OPINION AND A BODY, WHICH IS

MY RIGHT TO CONTROL.

Reporter: THE DECISION

MADE BY THE SUPREME COURT

BACK IN 1973, COST THE U.S.

MORE THAN 55 MILLION

PEOPLE.

THAT'S ROUGHLY ONE BABY

ABORTED EVERY 30 SECONDS.

AFTER THE ROE VS. WADE

DECISION, AMERICA BECAME ONE

OF THE ONLY WESTERN

COUNTRIES TO OFFER NO LEGAL

PROTECTION TO THE UNBORN AT

ANY STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT.

BOBUT PRO-LIFERS CAN CLAIM

SOME VICTORIES.

19 STATES PUT MEASURES INTO

PLACE TO RESTRICT ABORTIONS

LAST YEAR.

AND ONE PRO-LIFE GROUP SAYS

THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS HAVE

FALL DUE TO HEALTH

VIOLATIONS AND OTHER

REASONS.

AND THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS

HAS BEEN FALLING, TOO.

ALMOST EVERY YEAR, THE MARCH

FOR LIFE IS HELD IN THE

NATION'S CAPITAL ON THE

ACTUAL ANNIVERSARY OF THE

ROE VS. WADE DECISION.

NOT THIS YEAR.

INSTEAD, IT WILL BE FRIDAY,

THAT WILL GIVE IT A FEW DAYS

SEPARATION FROM PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S INAUGURATION.

ONE GROUP USED PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S OTHER WORDS ABOUT

PROTECTING CHILDREN FROM THE

NATION AFTER THE SANDY HOOK

TRAGEDY.

President Obama: CAN WE

HONESTLY SAY WE'RE DOING

ENOUGH TO KEEP OUR CHILDREN,

ALL OF THEM, SAFE FROM

HARM.

I'VE BEEN REFLECTING ON THIS

THE LAST FEW DAYS, AND IF

WE'RE HONEST WITH OURSELVES,

THE ANSWER IS NO.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: ABORTION HAS

BECOME A HOT TOPIC IN

IRELAND.

Wendy: AS MANY AS

40,000 PRO LIFERS RALLIED IN

DUBLIN.

ABORTION IS ILLEGAL IN THE

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND, BUT

RECENTLY THE GOVERNMENT SAID

THEY WOULD ALLOW IT IN SOME

CASES.

THE PRESS REPORT COMES AFTER

A 39-YEAR-OLD INDIAN WOMAN

DIED AFTER BEING DENIED AN

ABORTION.

AND HOSPITAL RECORDS REFLECT

NO REQUEST FOR AN ABORTION.

THE JOURNALIST WHO REPORTED

THIS STORY SAYS THE FACTS

HAVE BEEN MUD DLED.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ALSO TOOK ON

A MAJOR SOCIAL ISSUE AS HE

LAID OUT HIS AGENDA IN HIS

SECOND INAUGURAL SPEECH ON

MONDAY.

HE BECAME THE FIRST

PRESIDENT TO EMBRACE GAY

RIGHTS AND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

IN HIS SPEECH.

President Obama: OUR

GERALD JOURNEY IS NOT

COMPLETE UNTIL OUR GAY

BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE

TREATED UNDER THE LAW.

Wendy: THE PRESIDENT

ALSO SAYS WASHINGTON HAS TO

ACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE, AND

HE DISAGREED WITH THOSE WHO

SAY THE GOVERNMENT IS

SPENDING TOO MUCH ON WELFARE

AND ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS.

AN IRANIAN AMERICAN PASTOR

GOES TO PASTOR IN IRAN.

HE IS CHARGED WITH

ATTEMPTING TO UNDERMINE

IRAN'S GOVERNMENT BY

CREATING A NETWORK OF

CHRISTIAN HOUSE CHURCHES.

HIS ATTORNEY ARGUES HIS

CLIENT'S CHRISTIAN

ACTIVITIES ARE MOTIVATED BY

HIS FAITH, NOT POLITICS.

IF CONVICTED, ABADINA COULD

FACE THE DEATH PENALTY.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE URGE PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND SECRETARY OF STATE

HILLARY CLINTON TO SPEAK OUT

PUBLICLY FOR THE PASTOR.

Gordon: WE NEED TO KEEP

THE PRESSURE ON THIS.

DON'T BE FOOLED BY SOME OF

THE PRE PRESS REPORTS.

THEY SAID THE GOVERNMENT WAS

GOING TO ALLOW THE PASTOR

OUT ON BAIL, AND THE PRESS

REPORT WAS HE WOULD BE

ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE

COUNTRY, WHICH WOULD

ESSENTIALLY FREE HIM FOR THE

REST OF HIS LIFE.

HE COULD NEVER GO BACK INTO

IRAN, BUT HE WOULD AT LEAST

NOT FACE THE DEATH PENALTY.

DON'T BUY INTO IT.

WE'VE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH HIS

WIFE IN IDAHO, AND THEY'VE

PRESENTED THE BAIL.

IT HAS BEEN DENIED, AND IT

WAS ALL, ACCORDING TO HER,

AN ATTEMPT BY THE IRANIAN

GOVERNMENT TO STOP THE PRESS

REPORTS ABOUT WHAT PASTOR

SAID IS FACING.

AND HE IS FACING THE DEATH

PENALTY FOR STARTING HOUSE

CHURCHES IN IRAN.

WE NEED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE

ON.

HE IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN,

AND WE NEED TO PROTECT THE

RIGHTS OF AMERICANS AROUND

THE WORLD.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: WHEN RUSS SMITH

WAS LAID OFF, HE TOOK A

SERIES OF PART-TIME JOBS TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

THEN ONE DAY RUSS PRAYED A

VERY UNUSUAL PRAYER, AND SIX

WEEKS LATER HE GOT AN ANSWER

HE NEVER EXPECT.

Reporter: RUSS SMITH

WAS A SHEET METAL WORKER

WITH A GOOD JOB.

HE WAS AT CHURCH WHEN HE

FIRST HEARD THAT GOD ASKS US

TO TITHE 10% OF OUR INCOME,

AND HE WASN'T TWO HAPPY

ABOUT IT.

I KIND OF SAID A QUIET

PRAYER TO GOD, YOU GIVE ME

THE MONEY, AND I'LL TITHE.

AND HE KEPT COMING BACK, NO,

YOU TITHE AND I WILL GIVE

YOU THE MONEY.

I BECAME ANGRY AND

INDIGNANT, AND I SAID, FINE,

I'LL TITHE 10% OF EVERY

PENNY I PICK UP.

AND WHEN I'M BROKE AND ON

THE STREET AND DON'T HAVE

ANY FOOD TO EAT, I CAN TELL

YOU I TOLD YOU SO.

Reporter: HIS

RESISTANCE DIDN'T LAST

LONG.

ABOUT SIX WEEKS LATER, I

GOT A JOB MAKING THREE TIMES

WHAT I WAS MAKING AT THAT

TIME.

IT WAS ALL ABOUT GOD

HONORING MY TITHE.

Reporter: A FEW YEARS

LATER, HE MARRIED ROSE, AND

THEY STARTED A BLENDED

FAMILY.

SHE WAS A LITTLE SKEPTICAL

ABOUT THE IDEA OF TITHING,

BUT RUSSELL INSISTED, AND

SOON SHE SAW HOW FAITHFUL

GOD WAS.

I WASN'T 100% ON BOARD.

I WAS NERVOUS BECAUSE I WAS

CONCERNED, OKAY, HOW ARE WE

GOING TO PAY FOR TITHING AND

THEN PAY BILLS, AND TAKING

CARE OF THE KIDS, AND JUST

ALL OF THAT.

GOD HAS COME THROUGH FOR US

TREMENDOUSLY, IN MORE WAYS

THAN I CAN EVEN EXPRESS.

Reporter: ON TOP OF

TITHING TO THEIR CHURCH,

RUSS AND ROSE GIVE TO CBN.

"THE 700 CLUB" IS ONE OF

THE MOST WONDERFUL THINGS

I'VE COME ACROSS.

THE STORIES ARE ENCOURAGING,

AND THE STUDENT THAT I HAVE

TO GIVE TO "THE 700 CLUB"

AND THEN SEE HOW THE MONEY

IS BENEFITING OTHER PEOPLE

WHO ARE REALLY IN NEED IS

IMPORTANT.

Reporter: THEN IN 2008,

RUSS WAS LAID OFF FROM HIS

JOB.

AS THEIR PERSONAL FINANCES

BECAME A CHALLENGE, THEY

CONSIDERED STOPPING THEIR

PLEDGE TO CBN.

AND THE THING THAT CAME

TO MIND WAS IF I CHOOSE TO

DO THAT, WHERE IS MY FAITH,

FOR ONE, AND, TWO, IF THERE

EVER WAS A TIME WE NEED TO

BE DISCIPLINED ABOUT THE

AMOUNT OF MONEY WE'RE

OFFERING TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

IT HAD TO BE NOW.

I FELT I HAD A PEACE COME

OVER ME THAT MADE ME

UNDERSTAND THAT GOD WAS

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF US,

AND STOP FRETTING, STOP

WORRYING ABOUT IT.

Reporter: THE SMITHS

BELIEVE THAT AS THEY

CONTINUE TO GIVE, GOD

CONTINUES TO PROVIDE.

RUSS NOW GIVES SKATEBOARD

LESSONS, AND ROSE STARTED A

CLEANING BUSINESS.

TITHING IS NOT JUST

OBEDIENCE: I OBEDIENCE; IT

IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE BY

FAITH.

TO TAKE THE TRUST OUT OF

YOUR HANDS, AND WHAT YOUR

MONEY CAN DO, AND PUT IT IN

THE HANDS OF GOD.

HE HAS ABSOLUTELY TAKEN CARE

OF EVERY NEED THAT WE HAVE.

Gordon: I LOVE

RUSSELL'S HONESTY.

HE WANTED TO ARGUE WITH

GOD.

GOD WAS ASKING HIM TO GIVE.

GOD WAS ASKING HIM TO

TITHE.

AND HE SAID, OKAY, AND HE

DID IT.

AND THEN THE MIRACLES

STARTED HAPPENING.

HERE IT IS FROM HEBREWS 11:

"WITHOUT FAITH, IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM,

FOR HE WHO COMES TO GOD MUST

BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT

HE IS A REWARDER OF THOSE

WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM."

RUSSELL AND ROSE LEARNED

THAT, AND THEY SAID, OKAY,

WE'RE GOING TO START PUTTING

OUR FAITH IN GOD.

AND THAT MEANS TRUSTING HIM

WITH OUR FINANCES.

AND IT PAID OFF.

AND HE IS NOW ENCOURAGING

OTHERS.

IF YOU WANT TO SHOW HOW MUCH

YOU TRUST GOD, TRUST HIM

WITH YOUR TITHES AND

OFFERINGS.

WHEN J.D. LOST HIS JOB A FEW

YEARS AGO, THE BILLS PILED

UP, AND HIS SAVINGS

DISAPPEARED.

THAT'S WHEN J.D. AND HIS

WIFE TOOK AN UNUSUAL STEP TO

PAY OFF THEIR DEBTS.

Reporter: FOR YEARS

J.D. WORKED LONG HOURS AS A

REGIONAL SALES MANAGER IN

TEXAS.

HE AND HIS WIFE, JANET,

ALWAYS PAID THEIR-MONTHLY

BILLS ON TIME, AND WERE EVEN

ABLE TO PUT A LITTLE MONEY

INTO A RETIREMENT ACCOUNT.

THEN J.D. LOST HIS JOB IN

THE STOCK MARKET CRASH OF

2008.

I NEVER SAW THIS COMING.

I WAS TERRIFIED.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS

GOING TO DO.

Reporter: AFTER SIX÷÷

WEEKS, J.D. STILL COULDN'T

FIND A JOB AND HIS SEVERANCE

PAY RAN OUT.

SHORTLY AFTER THIS, HIS CAR

BROKE DOWN, AND HE FOUND A

MAJOR LEAK IN THE FOUNDATION

OF HIS HOME THAT NEEDED

IMMEDIATE REPAIR.

IN JUST A FEW WEEKS, THE

COUPLE FELL $9,000 INTO

DEBT.

JANET'S INCOME COULDN'T

COVER THE GROWING BILLS, SO

J.D. HAD TO DIP INTO HIS

RETIREMENT.

WHEN HE GOT INTO THE

401K, THAT'S SCARY.

BECAUSE YOU THINK, THAT'S

ALL WE HAVE.

WHEN THAT IS GONE, THAT'S

GONE.

THEN WHAT?

IT REALLY BEGAN TO WEAR

ON ME.

I COULDN'T SLEEP AT WELL.

THERE WAS WEIGHT LOSS, AND I

COULDN'T EAT WELL.

I WOULD HAVE PANIC ATTACKS

BECAUSE IT FELT LIKE THE

WHOLE WORLD WAS CLOSING

TOGETHER ON ME.

Reporter: J.D. AND

JANET BEGAN PRAYING AND J.D.

STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

THE LORD REACHED OUT TO

ME THROUGH A TESTIMONY ON

CBN ABOUT A WOMAN WHO

EXPERIENCED SIMILAR

CIRCUMSTANCES, AND SHE JUST

PRAYED THAT THE LORD WOULD

GIVE HERE A SECOND CHANCE.

THE INSTANT THAT I SAW IT, I

KNEW THAT IS WHAT I NEEDED.

AND THE LORD SPOKE TO ME AND

SAID THAT IS WHERE I NEEDED

TO GIVE.

THE COUPLE HAD BEEN FAITHFUL

TITHERS EVEN THROUGH J.D.'S

UNEMPLOYMENT.

HE KNEW GIVING BEYOND THAT

WOULD BE A STRETCH.

IT WAS DIFFICULTY TO

EXPLAIN TO MY WIFE THAT I

WAS GOING TO TITHE MORE WHEN

I DON'T EVEN HAVE A JOB.

BUT IT ALSO PUT ME OVER THE

MARK.

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY YOU HAVE

TRUST.

I NEEDED TO TAKE ACTION.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

AGREED, AND THEY BECOME CBN

PARTNERS.

AND J.D. AND JANET CONTINUED

TO GIVE.

I JUST SAID, NO MATTER

WHAT, NO MATTER HOW BAD IT

GETS, I'M GOING TO CONTINUE

TITHING AND GIVING LIKE I

SAID I WOULD, AND GOD WILL

DELIVER ME ONE WAY OR THE

OTHER.

Reporter: J.D. SUFFERED

THROUGH FOUR MORE MONTHS OF

UNEMPLOYMENT, BUT HE WAS

FINALLY HIRED AS A REGIONAL

SALES MANAGER, MAKING 10%

MORE.

IN LESS THAN A YEAR, HE

LANDED ANOTHER JOB, AT A

DIR DIFFERENT COMPANY, AS A

NATIONAL SALES REP, MAKING

50% MORE THAN HE EVER HAD

BEFORE.

ALL I KEPT SAYING WAS,

WOW!

Reporter: AND THEY PAID

OFF THEIR $15,000 DEBT, AND

TODAY THEY SAY THEY'RE FREER

THAN THEY EVER WERE BEFORE.

YOU KNOW BY GIVING, HE

BLESSES US, YOU CAN SEE.

GOD JUST WANTED ME TO PUT

MY FAITH AND TRUST IN HIM.

RATHER THAN WORSHIPPING HARD

WORK, WORSHIPPING MY

COMPANY, WORSHIPPING

MONEY -- WORSHIPPING ALL OF

THOSE THINGS, I NEEDED TO

SURRENDER AND WORSHIP HIM.

YOU JUST HAVE TO STEP OUT BY

FAITH.

YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT HE TELLS

YOU TO DO.

Gordon: WHAT AN AMAZING

STORY OF FAITH.

IMAGINE TITHING OFF YOUR

UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK.

BUT THAT'S WHAT J.D. DID,

AND HE SAID IT PUT HIM OVER

THE MARK.

TO SHOW -- REALLY TO SHOW

HIMSELF THAT HE HAD FAITH

THAT GOD WOULD SEE HIM

THROUGH.

AND THAT FAITH WAS TESTED

BECAUSE AFTER THAT DECISION,

IT TOOK FOUR LONG MONTHS FOR

HIM TO LAND HIS FIRST JOB.

BUT THE BLESSING STARTED,

AND HERE IS THE PROMISE THAT

J.D. WALKED INTO, ISAIAH 1:

19: "IF YOU WILL ONLY OBEY

ME AND LET ME HELP YOU, THEN

YOU WILL HAVE PLENTY."

YOU CAN CAN TRUST GOD WITH

YOUR FINANCES.

IF I CAN GET A DRUMROLL,

I'VE GOT SOME GREAT NEWS.

SOME CBN PARTNERS, JUST LIKE

J.D., SAY WE LOVE GIVING AND

LIVING A LIFE OF GENEROSITY,

AND WE WANT TO CHALLENGE

OTHERS TO GIVE.

SO WE'LL MATCH THEIR GIFTS

FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, UP

TO AND INCLUDING $100,000.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, FOR THE PARTNERS WHO

MADE IT POSSIBLE, FOR THOSE

WHO GIVE TO CBN, I PRAY OVER

THEM OPEN HEAVENS, THAT

THERE WOULD BE JUST SHOWERS

OF BLESSING INTO THEIR

LIVES.

THAT YOU WOULD BLESS THEM,

YOU WOULD BLESS THEIR

CHILDREN.

YOU WOULD BLESS EVERYTHING

CONCERNING THEM.

GIVE THEM FAVOR.

AND FOR THOSE WATCHING,

MAKING DECISIONS NOW, SPEAK

TO THEM, ENCOURAGE THEM, FOR

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

YOU HEARD IT, $100,000 ON A

CHALLENGE.

30 MINUTES TO MAKE IT.

WHAT A CHALLENGE MEANS IS

EXISTING CBN DONORS LIKE

GIVING SO MUCH, THEY WANT TO

CHALLENGE YOU TO GIVE, AND

THEY'LL MATCH IT UP TO

$100,000.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO

DO?

GORDON?

Gordon: A FEW YEARS

AGO, GLEN COX HAD MORE THAN

$300,000 IN DEBT.

HE SAID IT HAPPENED ONE BAD

DECISION AT A TIME.

BUT IT ONLY TOOK ONE GOOD

DECISION FOR GLEN TO GET OUT

OF DEBT AND INTO HIS DREAM

JOB.

THE SAYING IS, YOU WORK

TO LIVE, NOT LIVE TO WORK,

AND I WAS LIVING TO WORK.

Reporter: GLEN COX'S

LIFE REINVOLVED AROUND HIS

CAREER AS A RESTAURANT

MANAGER.

HIS YEARS OF OBSESSING ABOUT

WORK LED TO HIS WIFE,

MICHELLE, PACKING UP THE

KIDS AND LEAVING.

I THINK WHEN MICHELLE

LEFT, THAT'S WHEN I HAD TO

REALLY SEARCH FOR A DEEPER

FAITH, TO REALLY GROW UP.

I HAD TO ASK GOD, FOR THE

FIRST TIME, TO SAY, LORD,

I'VE BEEN WRONG.

HELP ME SEE THE RIGHT WAY.

Reporter: GLEN STARTED

GOING BACK TO CHURCH.

I JUST TOOK SMALL STEPS.

I TRIED TO BE A DAD.

I GOT A JOB THAT DIDN'T OWN

ME.

I STARTED BECOMING A GIVER,

ATTENDED CHURCH REGULARLY

AND THEN JUST PRAYED AND HAD

FAITH.

Reporter: GLEN ALSO HAD

TO DEAL WITH A LOT OF DEBT.

THE TOTAL DEBT WAS SOMEWHERE

IN THE $330,000 RANGE.

AND IT HAPPENED ONE BAD

DECISION AT A TIME.

Reporter: WHILE HE

SLOWLY WORKED HIS WAY OUT OF

DEBT, GLEN DECIDED TO BECOME

A "THE 700 CLUB" PARTNER.

I JUST STARTED DOING THE

$20 A MONTH.

TO ME IT SEEMED LIKE, MAN,

SHOULDN'T YOU DO MORE?

BUT I SAID, I'VE GOT TO DO

THIS AND DO IT CONSISTENTLY,

NO MATTER WHAT'S GOING ON.

Reporter: GLEN GOT OUT

OF THE RESTAURANT BUSINESS

COMPLETELY, AND MOVED TO BE

CLOSER TO MICHELLE AND THE

KIDS.

I KNEW MY MOTIVES WERE

ABOUT GETTING MY FAMILY

RIGHT.

SO I HAD TO GET OUT OF THE

JOB THAT HAD TRAPPED ME.

BUT I HAD TO GIVE UP THAT

BIG SALARY TO DO THAT.

IT WAS NOT ABOUT THE MONEY.

IT WAS ABOUT THAT THAT JOB

OWNED ME.

SO I TOOK A JOB MAKING $8 AN

HOUR WORKING FOR A GUY THAT

SEAL-CROATED DRIVEWAYS.

Reporter: THE NEXT

YEAR, GLEN STARTED A

BUSINESS OF HIS OWN.

AND AS IT GREW, HE CONTINUED

TO BE FAITH TO GIVING TO

CBN.

IT GOT INTO GIVING $40 A

MONTH AND THEN $80 MONTH.

AND EVER YEAR IT OCCURRED.

I DIDN'T MAKE IT MY MOTIVE

TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK, BUT

IT JUST WAS A BY-PRODUCT OF

THAT.

I STARTED WITH NOTHING.

THE FIRST YEAR WE HAD 350

COSTUMERS.

TODAY WE HAVE OVER 20,000

COSTUMERS.

I CAN'T SAY THERE IS

ANYTHING MAGICAL ABOUT THE

WAY I SEAL COAT A DRIVEWAY.

I THINK IT IS GOD.

Reporter: THE CHANGES

IN GLEN'S LIFE ALSO AFFECTED

MICHELLE.

THE COUPLE RECONCILED, AND

THE MICHELLE BECAME A

CHRISTIAN.

PIER I

I COULD SEE HE WAS A

DIFFERENT PERSON.

IT WAS HIS FAITH THAT WAS

THE CATALYST THAT PUSHED ME

IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

THE WAY WE INTERACT NOW AND

THE WAY WE TREAT EACH OTHER

NOW, IS SO DIFFERENT.

IT BASED ON RESPECT AND LOVE

AND GOD.

Reporter: TODAY GEN

GLEN AND MICHELLE ARE

MEMBERS OF CBN'S CHAIRMAN

CIRCLE.

I GET EXCITED HOW MUCH I

CAN GIVE.

I DON'T DO IT WITH ANY HOPE

OF GETTING SOMETHING BACK,

AND IT JUST KEEPS COMING.

IT IS JUST GOOFY.

Gordon: I LOVE GLEN'S

STORY.

HERE HE IS, HE IS WORKING

HARD, AND HE IS TRYING HIS

BEST.

BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO WORK

FOR HIM.

AND IT ACTUALLY TRAPS HIM.

AND THAT CAN HAPPY.

HAPPEN.

YOU CAN GET TRAPPED INTO

THINKING THAT SOMEHOW OR

ANOTHER IF YOU WORK EVEN

HARDER, YOU'RE GOING TO GET

OUT OF THIS.

HERE IS THE WARNING, AND IT

IS TO GOD, AND IT IS TO THE

CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AS

THEY'RE GETTING READY TO GO

INTO THE PROMISED LAND,

DEUTERONOMY 8: "NEVER THINK

IT WAS YOUR OWN STRENGTH AND

ENERGY THAT MADE YOU

WEALTHY.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT IT IS

THE LORD, YOUR GOD, WHO

GIVES YOU THE POWER TO

BECOME RICH."

GLEN GOT RICH IN A VERY

UNUSUAL WAY, BY HUMBLING

HIMSELF AND SAYING, I NEED

TO PUT MY FAMILY FIRST.

I NEED TO MOVE CLOSER TO MY

GIRLS SO I CAN BE WITH

THEM.

AND THEN HE TOOK AN $8 AN

HOUR JOB, AND THROUGH THAT

SAID, OKAY, I NOW HAVE

LEARNED THE BUSINESS, AND I

CAN NOW START THIS

BUSINESS.

AND THROUGH GIVING, NOT WITH

ANY KIND OF EXPECTATION TO

GET, BUT JUST SAYING I WANT

TO HONOR GOD WITH MY FIRST

FRUITS, WITH MY TITHES, WITH

MY OFFERINGS, THAT'S WHEN IT

TURNED AROUND FOR HIM.

AND HE SAW THE DOUBLING

EFFECT, THE INCREASE.

I LOVE WHAT HE SAYS, I DON'T

SEAL COAT A DRIVEWAY ANY

BETTER THAN ANYBODY ELSE.

IT JUST SEEMS TO COME MY

WAY.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU

BECAUSE IT IS GOD WHO GIVES

US THE POWER TO GET WEALTH.

IF YOU WANT TO START A LIFE

OF GENEROSITY, IF YOU WANT

TO SAY I WANT TO START

GIVING.

I WANT TO BE KNOWN FOR

GIVING AND GIVING

FAITHFULLY, CALL US AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO BE A MEMBER

OF "THE 700 CLUB."

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

JUST $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY I CAN JOIN

AT A HIGHER LEVEL.

WE'VE GOT "700 CLUB" GOLD.

AND WE'LL SEND YOU THREE.

IF YOU JOIN AT THE THOUSAND

CLUB LEVEL, WE'LL SEND YOU

FIVE.

SO YOU CAN SHARE WITH

FAMILY, WITH FRIENDS, WITH

NEIGHBORS.

IT IS A GREAT AND USEFUL

THING TO TELL PEOPLE.

HERE IS AN EYE WITNESS

ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENS.ñ

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT

LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE?

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE?

LET ME SHOW YOU SOME EYE

WITNESS ACCOUNTS OF PEOPLE

WHO HAVE BEEN THERE AND HAVE

BEEN ABLE TO COME BACK AND

TELL THEIR STORY.

IF YOU'D LIKE THAT, JOIN

"700 CLUB."

JOIN AT THE GOLD LEVEL OR

THE THOUSAND LEVEL, AT

WHATEVER LEVEL, JOIN.

DOUG AND EMILY MEECHAM ONLY

LIVE ON HALF OF THEIR

INCOME, AND WHAT THEY DO

WITH THE OTHER HALF IS

CHANGING LIVES AROUND THE

WORLD.

*

Reporter: DOUG MEECHAM

IS A THIRD GENERATION PASTOR

WITH A PASSION FOR MUSIC.

HE CREDITS THE SUCCESS OF

HIS CHRISTIAN BAND TO

TITHING AND GIVING.

AND THE LORD IS JUST

SAYING THIS IS ONE AREA

YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE TO ME.

ONCE YOU DO THAT, I'M GOING

TO BLESS YOU.

Reporter: HIS WIFE,

EMILY, LEARNED ABOUT THE

BENEFITS OF TITHING THROUGH

HER FIRST BIG JOB AS A

TEENAGER.

WHEN I DID START TITHING,

I IMMEDIATELY, THE NEXT DAY,

GOT A RAISE, LIKE A $2 AN

HOUR RAISE, AND FROM THAT

MOMENT ON, IT SNOWBALLED

INTO BLESSING AFTER

BLESSING.

Reporter: WHEN DOUG AND

EMILY GOT MARRIED, THEY BOTH

KNEW THEY WANTED TO KEEP

TITHING.

THEY GAVE CONSISTENTLY TO

THE CHURCH AND CBN.

I HEARD PEOPLE TALK ABOUT

CBN FOR YEARS.

I THOUGHT IT WAS FOR OLD

PEOPLE.

I ACTUALLY SAW IT ONE DAY

AND ENDED UP IN TEARS, AND I

ENDED UP CALLING IN AND

PLEDGING AND I RECORD IT

EVERY DAY AND WATCH IT.

Reporter: DURING THE

DOWN ECONOMY, THEIR FINANCES

GOT TIGHT.

THEY PULLE KEPT GIVING TO

CBN, BUT PULLED BACK FROM

OTHER AREAS OF GIVING.

I ONLY GAVE ABSOLUTELY

WHAT I HAD TO, SO THINGS

WERE BARELY BEING COVERED.

IF I ONLY TRUSTED GOD TO PAY

THE BILLS, AND NOTHING

EXTRA, AND THEN I PUT HIM IN

A BOX.

AND THAT'S PRETTY MUCH WHAT

WE DID.

Reporter: THEY COULDN'T

SEEM TO SELL A RENTAL

PROPERTY THEY OWNED, AND

WHEN THE COMPANY EMILY

WORKED FOR WAS BOUGHT OUT,

SHE LOST HER PART-TIME JOB.

THAT'S WHEN SHE AND DOUG

DECIDED, IT WAS TIME TO

START GIVING AGAIN.

I ACTUALLY HEARD A

TEACHING.

GOD WAS TALKING ABOUT THE

LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

AND HE WHETHER IT WAS $5 OR

$50, JUST TRY IT.

I DID $5 INCREMENTS, AND

EVERY TIME GOD DID SOMETHING

AMAZING.

Reporter: SHE FOUND

ANOTHER JOB SHE LOVED,

TEACHING AT A CHRISTIAN

DANCE STUDIO.

AFTER TITHING TO CBN, I

GOT ANOTHER DANCE JOB.

IT WAS DOING LESS HOURS,

GETTING MORE MONEY, AND

MINISTERING TO PEOPLE,

ALSO.

IT SEEMS LIKE WHEN WE

WERE FAITHFUL IN GIVING, HE

BLESSED US AND WE ENDED UP

SELLING THE PROPERTY JUST

WHEN WE NEEDED TO, JUST AT

THE RIGHT MOMENT.

Reporter: AND DOUG'S

BAND, "NEW METHOD," STARTING

GETTING JOBS, PERFORMING IN

FRONT OF THOUSANDS.

GOD JUST OPENED THE

DOORS.

I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT GOD

CALLS YOU SPECIFICALLY TO

GIVE MORE.

THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING.

BECAUSE GOD OWNS

EVERYTHING.

HE DOESN'T NEED MY MONEY,

BUT IT IS MY FAITH LEVEL.

AND DO I TRUST GOD TO

PROVIDE ALL OF MY NEEDS.

THAT'S THE QUESTION I HAD TO

ANSWER EVERY TIME I WROTE A

CHECK.

Reporter: TODAY THE

MEECHAMS GIVE AWAY ROUGHLY

HALF OF THEIR INCOME IN

TITHES AND OFFERINGS.

I THOUGHT IT WAS

UNBELIEVABLE THAT GOD WOULD

LOOK AT ME AND SAY, I WANT

TO PROVIDE EVERYTHING YOU

EVER WANTED, YOUR HEART'S

DESIRES, YOUR FINANCIAL

NEED, YOUR PHYSICAL NEED.

HE SUSTAINS US.

IT CAN BE IN HEALTH, IT CAN

BE IN JOY, HAPPINESS,

PEACE.

AS YOU INCREASE, HE

INCREASES.

YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.

Gordon: DOUG AND EMILY

HAVE LEARNED ONE OF THE

GREAT SECRETS.

WE CALL IT ONE OF THE LAWS

OF THE KINGDOMS OF GOD.

WE CALL IT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

LUKE 6, AND THESE ARE THE

WORDS OF JESUS: "GIVE AND IT

WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU."

LET'S STOP THERE.

"GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

TO YOU."

SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER WE FEEL

LIKE WE NEED TO BE WEALTHY

TO GIVE.

BUT YOU'RE MISSING THE LAW

OF RESIPROCITY.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, YOU'RE

MISSING OUT ON THE BLESSING

GOD HAS FOR YOU.

HE ASKS YOU, YOU START THE

PROCESS, YOU GIVE, AND THEN

IN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE, I

WILL GIVE TO YOU.

SO IT IS GIVE AND IT WILL BE

GIVEN TO YOU.

"A GOOD MEASURE, PRESSED

DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER, AND

RUNNING OVER WILL BE POURED

INTO YOUR LAP.

FOR WITH THE MEASURE YOU

USE, IT WILL BE MEASURED

BACK TO YOU."

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT --

AND DOUG AND EMILY CERTAINLY

DO -- IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO

GIVE AWAY 50% OF YOUR

INCOME -- IT'S THAT MEASURE

THAT IT WILL BE MEASURED

BACK TO YOU.

AND JUST REMEMBER THE

LISTING OF WONDERFUL

BENEFITS THAT STARTED COMING

INTO THEIR LIFE.

WHERE THEY'RE HAPPY.

THEY HAVE GOOD HEALTH.

GOD PROVIDES ALL THEIR

PHYSICAL NEEDS.

HE WATCHES OVER THEM.

WHY?

BECAUSE THEY PUT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY INTO PRACTICE.

THEY SAID, WE'RE GOING TO

START GIVING.

WE'RE GOING TO PRIME THIS

PUMP, AND THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENED TO THEM.

IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU BECAUSE

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

IF YOU FOLLOW HIS RULES, THE

LAWS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD,

IF YOU FOLLOW THEM, THEN

YOU'LL GET THE SAME

BLESSING.

SO, WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU

TO DO?

WE'RE ASKING TO YOU GIVE,

AND BECOME A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB."

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S GO TO WENDY AT THE

PHONES.

Wendy: GORDON, YOU MAKE

GIVING SOUND FUN.

I WANT TO GIVE, TOO.

WHEN YOU COUNT ALL OF THE

VERSES IN THE BIBLE, JESUS

SPOKE ABOUT HELL MORE THAN

HE TALKED ABOUT HEAVEN.

HE CALLED IT A GNASHING OF

TEETH.

AND IN "LIFE BEYOND THE

GRAVE, PART TWO," YOU'LL

MEET SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE

BEEN THERE.

WHAT IF YOU KNEW HELL WAS

REAL BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN

THERE.

THE STENCH OF HELL IS THE

MOST ROTTENOUS THING.

I LOOKED UP AND I SAW

DEATH AND I SAW HELL IN HIS

EYES.

HOW WOULD IT CHANGE THE

WAY YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE?

I WOULD SAY I'M SORRY,

AND PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

THE REPENTANCE WAS VERY

IMPORTANT.

GET THE REAL STORY, FROM

PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCED "LIFE

BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO."

Wendy: HELL IS A VERY

REAL PLACE OF TORMENT.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?

YOU NEVER HAVE TO GO THERE.

NOT EVEN FOR A SECOND.

GOD MADE A PERFECT WAY FOR

US TO NEVER HAVE TO GO

THERE, AND HIS NAME IS

JESUS.

JESUS SAID, BELIEVE IN ME

AND YOU WILL HAVE LIFE,

ETERNAL LIFE, AND NEVER

DIE.

IF YOU WANT TO MEET SOME

MORE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN TO

THE OTHER SIDE AND COME BACK

TO TELL THEIR AMAZING

STORIES, IT'S ALL IN HERE,

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO."

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU CALL RIGHT NOW AND JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS IT?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A

$10100,000 CHALLENGE.

THAT MEANS EVERY DOLLAR YOU

GIVE WILL BE MATCHED DOLLAR

FOR DOLLAR.

WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO."

PEOPLE TALK ABOUT DYING AND

THEIR WARNINGS OF HEAVEN AND

HELL.

THIS COULD ACTUALLY CHANGE

WHERE YOU AND YOUR LOVED

ONES SPEND ETERNITY.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A "700

CLUB" MEMBER, WHY NOT TAKE

IT UP TO THE GOLD LEVEL,

JUST $40 A MONTH, AND WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO"s.

AND IF YOU'RE A GOLD CLUB

MEMBER, I CHALLENGE YOU TO

GO TO THE THOUSAND LEVEL,

$84 A MONTH.

AND WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU

FIVE D.V.D.s.

MAYBE YOUR FRIENDS WON'T GO

TO CHURCH, BUT THEY'LL SIT

DOWN AND WATCH A REALLY COOL

D.V.D.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB,"

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com, ANOTHER GREATER

WAY TO GIVE.

TERRY?

Terry: THANKS, WENDY.

OVER THE PAST FOUR MONTHS,

MORE THAN 4200 VOLUNTEERS

HAVE JOINED UP TO HELP

PEOPLE WHO SURVIVED SUPER

SUPER STORM SANDY.

Reporter: BURT AND JEAN

MESH TRIED TO SALVAGE

EVERYTHING THEY COULD AFTER

HURRICANE SANDY RIPPED

THROUGH THEIR HOME IN NEW

YORK.

THEY WERE ALSO IN THE MIDDLE

OF ADDING A ROOM TO THEIR

SMALL HOUSE WHERE THE STORM

HIT.

THE PLASTER BOARD AND THE

FLOORING WARPED AND AN AREA

WAS WIPED OUT.

Reporter: THEY SPENT

THEIR SAVINGS ON THE

ADDITION AND COULDN'T AFFORD

THE COSTLY REPAIRS TO THEIR

HOME.

JODY GETTIES FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING" REMEMBERS MEETING

THIS FAMILY.

WE KNEW THIS WAS A FAMILY

THAT NEEDED HELP.

WHEN WE SAW EVERYTHING THEY

WENT THROUGH, AND THE

INSPIRATION THEY ARE TO THE

ENTIRE COMMUNITY, IT WAS AN

INSPIRATION TO US.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING"

VOLUNTEERS WORK TIRELESSLY.

THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE JUST

GUTTING THEIR HOUSE, BUT

WHEN THEY CAME HOME A FEW

WEEKS LATER, THEY WERE IN

FOR A BIG SURPRISE.

JODY, IT IS JUST

GORGEOUS.

WHEN SHE OPENED THE DOORS

AND WE SAW THE REST OF THE

HOUSE, IT WAS ALMOST MORE

THAN YOUR HEART COULD TAKE.

I MEAN, YOU JUST DIDN'T KNOW

HOW TO DEAL WITH IT

EMOTIONALLY.

GRATEFULNESS AND

APPRECIATION TO ALL OF THE

PEOPLE THAT DID THE WORK.

WHEN I WALKED IN THIS

AFTERNOON, I REALLY DIDN'T

BELIEVE THAT WAS MY HOUSE.

WHOA, IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

YOU WONDER WHERE IT ALL CAME

FROM, AND WHO WOULD DO SUCH

A THING.

UNBELIEVABLE.

REALLY UNBELIEVABLE.

Reporter: WITH YOUR

SUPPORT, "OPERATION

BLESSING" WILL CONTINUE

HELPING PEOPLE LIKE THE

MENTZES AROUND THE WORLD IN

TIMES OF DISASTER.

ANYBODY WHO HAS DONATED

TO "OPERATION BLESSING," OR

CAN CONTINUE TO DONATE TO

MAKE PEOPLE'S LIVES FEEL

MORE BLESSED, HOW WONDERFUL

AND HOW WONDERFUL THAT ALL

THESE VOLUNTEERS DO THE WORK

GRATIS, AND HAVE A SMILE ON

THEIR FACE AND LOVE IN THEIR

HEART.

Terry: BERT AND JEAN,

THEIR LIVES FOREVER CHANGED

BECAUSE OF PEOPLE WHO

CARED.

YOU KNOW, IT BEGINS WITH

YOU.

IT REALLY DOES.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO

DONATED THEIR TIME TO GO UP

THERE.

OUR "OPERATION BLESSING"

TEAM IS UP THERE.

BUT IT STARTS WITH YOU.

WHEN YOU GIVE, YOU MAKE IT

POSSIBLE FOR US TO BE THERE

AT POINTS OF NEED IN

PEOPLE'S LIVES, LIKE JEAN

AND BERT EXPERIENCED.

BE A PART OF THAT.

WE'RE REACHING OUT TO PEOPLE

ALL ACROSS THE UNITED

STATES, AS WELL AS AROUND

THE WORLD.

IT BEGINS WHEN YOU JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH

MAKES YOU A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

THERE ARE LOTS OF CLUB

LEVELS YOU CAN JOIN AT.

MAYBE, IN FACT, YOU'RE

ALREADY A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

WOULD YOU THEN CONSIDER

GOING UP TO "700 CLUB"

GOLD.

IF YOU'RE A GOLD CLUB

MEMBER, GO UP TO THE

THOUSAND CLUB, $84.

SOME PEOPLE JOIN US AT THE

2500 LEVEL, $209 A MONTH,

AND OUR FOUNDERS AT $5,000 A

YEAR.

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE

CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE, AND THEY

GIVE $10,000 A YEAR OR

MORE.

ASK GOD WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO

DO?

AND THEN CALL, KNOWING

YOU'RE CHANGING PEOPLE'S

LIVES ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

Gordon: IN PARTS OF

CHINA, MEDICAL CARE IS A

LUXURY MANY CAN'T AFFORD.

ONE LITTLE GIRL THERE SPENT

THREE YEARS WITH A BROKEN

LEG UNTIL A CBN MEDICAL

CLINIC ARRIVED AT HER

VILLAGE.

Reporter: 3-YEAR-OLD

YON CHI FELL AND INSTANTLY

KNEW SOMETHING WAS BROKEN.

I LEG HURT AND MY HEART

STARTED TO BEAT VERY FAST.

X-RAYS SHOWED HER LEG WAS

BROKEN.

THE DOCTOR SAID SHE NEEDED

SURGERY.

Reporter: YON CHI'S

PARENTS HAD TO MOVE TO THE

CITY TO FIND WORK TO SAVE

FOR THE OPERATION.

THE GIRL'S GRANDMOTHER TOOK

CARE OF HER WHILE HER

PARENTS WERE AWAY.

EVENTUALLY, YON CHI WAS ABLE

TO SPEND TIME OUTDOORS WITH

THE HELP OF A WOODEN CRUTCH

HER GRANDFATHER MADE FOR

HER.

THREE YEARS HAD PASSED.

YON CHI'S PARENTS ONLY WERE

ABLE TO SAVE PART OF THE

MONEY FOR THE SURGERY.

MY LEG HURTS ALL THE

TIME.

I WAS AFRAID IT WOULD NEVER

GET WELL.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

THE DOCTOR FROM CBN SAW YON

CHI LIMPING AROUND THE

VILLAGE ON A CRUTCH.

WE WERE THERE DOING A CBN

MEDICAL CLINIC, AND WHEN I

EXAMINED YON CHI'S LEG, I

KNEW IT COULD STILL BE

RESTORED.

Reporter: CBN ARRANGED

FOR HER TO HAVE SURGERY AT A

NEAR HOSPITAL, AND JUST AS

DR. WONG THOUGHT, THE

OPERATION WAS A COMPLETE

SUCCESS.

TODAY YON CHI HAS THROWN

AWAY HER CRUTCH, RETURNED TO

SCHOOL, AND EVEN SEE HER

PARENTS BACK.

THE FOLKS AT CBN ARE SO

KIND.

NOW MY DAUGHTER WILL NOT

HAVE TO SUFFER THE REST OF

HER LIFE.

MY LEG IS COMPLETELY

BETTER AND I CAN WALK.

I'M SO HAPPY.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

BLESSING THAT WONDERFUL

LITTLE GIRL.

JUST IMAGINE HAVING A BROKEN

LEG FOR THREE YEARS, AND NO

ACCESS TO MEDICAL CARE.

NO ACCESS, AND ARE YOU GOING

TO GROW UP LAME?

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO

YOUR LIFE?

BECAUSE OF YOU, WE HAVE

MEDICAL TEAMS THAT GO AROUND

CHINA.

IT IS ONE OF THE GREAT

STORIES OF HOW MANY

AND WE'RE ABLE TO ENABLE

THEM.

THAT IS NEEDED

THE GOLF COURSE IS A GREAT

PLACE TO UNWIND AFTER WORK.

AND FOR ANTHONY GRIFFIN, IT

IS ALSO THE PLACE WHERE HE

DEVELOPED A MILLION DOLLAR

IDEA.

Reporter: ANTHONY

GRIFFIN TRAINS SOLDIERS ON

HOW TO OPERATE MILITARY

VEHICLES.

BUT WHEN HE IS NOT AT WORK,

HE IS ON THE GOLF COURSE.

HE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT GOLF,

AND LOVES TEACHING KIDS.

IN GOLF, YOU HAVE GOLF

ETIQUETTE.

AND IN MINISTRY, YOU HAVE

ETIQUETTE, TOO.

WE HAVE THE PRINCIPLES AND

THE LAWS OF GOD.

Reporter: INCLUDING THE

PRINCIPLE OF TITHING.

IF I GIVE, I'LL RECEIVE.

BUT YOU JUST DON'T GIVE TO

RECEIVE.

YOU GIVE BECAUSE YOU REALLY

LOVE GOD, AND GOD COMMANDED

YOU TO GIVE BECAUSE THE

BLESSINGS PRONOUNCED ON YOUR

LIFE ARE THROUGH GIVING.

Reporter: AND FOR

ANTHONY, GIVING INCLUDES

GIVING TO CBN.

THEY'RE TEACHING THE

PRECEPS OF GOD THROUGH

GIVING TO NATIONS AND OTHER

COUNTRIES.

Reporter: AND GOD GAVE

HIM THE IDEA FOR A UNIQUE

GOLF SHOE DESIGN.

ONE DAY WHEN I WAS

HITTING THE BALL, A TEE

FLIPPED UP AND WENT INTO MY

SHOE.

WHEN YOU HIT IT, THEY'LL

FLIP.

THIS ONE FLIPPED UP AND IT

CAUGHT INTO MY SHOE.

I WAS, LIKE, WHERE DID MY

TEE GO.

AND THE LORD SAID, KEEP IT

IN YOUR SHOE.

Reporter: ANTHONY

DESIGNED A SHOE THAT HOLDS

THE TEE AND BALL MARKER

RIGHT ON THE SHOE.

IN GOLF, YOU HAVE TO DO

EVERYTHING.

TO PUT YOUR TEE IN THE

GROUND, IT'S IN YOUR SHOE.

Reporter: PRE-ORDERS

CAME FLOODING IN.

THE FIRST ORDER FROM THE

MANUFACTURER IS 200,000

PAIRS OF SHOES, WITH 500,000

TO FOLLOW.

ARCHL NE I -- ANTHONY IS

EXPECTED TO MAKE MILLIONS.

HE FEELS THE LORD BLESSED

HIM BECAUSE OF HIS

FAITHFULNESS TO GIVE.

JUST GIVE, TRUST GOD, AND

WATCH GOD WORK.

Gordon: JUST TRUST GOD

AND WATCH GOD WORK.

IT IS INCREDIBLE WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU SAY, OKAY,

I'M GOING TO TRUST GOD WITH

MY FINANCES.

I'M GOING TO PUT THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY TO WORK.

AND THE WAY YOU DO THAT IS

GIVE, AND THEN IT WILL BE

GIVEN UNTO YOU.

AND WHAT HAPPENED WITH

ANTHONY?

HE GAVE, AND THEN GOD GAVE

HIM A WONDERFUL IDEA THAT IS

GOING TO LEAD FOR BLESSING

FOR HIM AND BLESSINGS FOR

OTHERS BECAUSE ANTHONY KNOWS

HE'S GOING TO GIVE OFF OF

WHAT GOD GIVES HIM BACK.

IT IS INCREDIBLE WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU START

LIVING A LIFE OF GENEROSITY,

TO SAY I WANT TO BE A

BLESSING TO OTHERS.

I WANT TO GIVE.

I WANT TO WALK INTO THAT

MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN IT

IS TO RECEIVE.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT, JOIN

Terry: RACHEL HERNANDEZ

WORKS LONG HOURS TO PROVIDE

FOR HER FAMILY OF EIGHT.

BUT SHE STILL FINDS TIME TO

HELP HUNDREDS OF OTHERS IN

HER COMMUNITY.

WATCH.

Reporter: ON A LONG

HIGHWAY BETWEEN SAN ANTONIO

AND EL PASO, TEXAS, RACHEL

HERNANDEZ WORKS AS A

JANITORIAL SUPERVISOR AT A

HIGHWAY REST STOP.

SHE GETS UP AT 4:00 EVERY

MORNING TO GO TO WORK, JUST

SO SHE CAN PROVIDE FOR HER

FAMILY.

IT IS KIND OF HARD

SOMETIMES TO GET UP AND JUST

WALK OR JUST GET UP AND TRY

AND START YOUR DAY.

IT IS VERY HARD TO BE ABLE

TO PICK UP GROCERIES, TO PAY

THE LIGHT BILLS, TO FIX MY

CARS IF THEY BREAK DOWN.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO

START.

I HAVE TO BE THERE.

AND I HAVE TO BE THE

STRONGEST ONE.

Reporter: RACHEL

SUPPORTS A FAMILY OF EIGHT,

WHO ALL LIVE IN A THREE

BEDROOM MOBILE HOME.

HER HUSBAND, RUBIN, IS

UNABLE TO WORK.

HE IS HAVING ONGOING

CHEMOTHERAPY FOR BLADDER

CANCER.

IT IS HARD FOR ME NOT TO

WORK.

I'VE ALWAYS WORKED.

AND NOW I CAN'T WORK.

Reporter: PASTOR MIKE

McDANIEL SAYS THE

HERNANDEZ FAMILY IS NOT

ALONE.

THERE IS APPROXIMATELY

900 FAMILIES THAT LIVE IN

THIS AREA, AND THEY SAY THE

STATISTICS IS THAT 90% OF

THEM ARE IN POVERTY.

Reporter: BUT THERE IS

HELP FOR THESE FAMILIES.

MIKE RUNS A FOOD

DISTRIBUTION PUT ON BY

COWBOY FELLOWSHIP IN THE

SMALL TOWN OF CENTERPOINT

TEXAS.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PROVIDES THE MINISTRY WITH

FOOD BOXES, CLEANING

SUPPLIES, AND DIAPERS.

I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF

RESOURCES.

AND, YES, I DO DEPEND ON

THEM, AND SO DOES MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: RACHEL

DECIDED TO BE PART OF

HELPING HER NEIGHBORS, WHO

WERE STRUGGLING, JUST AS SHE

WAS.

THE FIRST TIME I GAVE OUT

A BOX, IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE

THE BIGGEST PERSON IN THE

WORLD, LIKE, OH, MY GOD, I

JUST GAVE OUT A BOX OF FOOD

TO SOMEBODY THAT REALLY

NEEDED IT.

IT IS NOT JUST ME.

IT IS THEM, TOO.

SHE KNOWS THE NEEDS OF

HER COMMUNITY.

SHE HAS BEEN HERE FOR 38

YEARS.

I THINK RACHEL OUGHT TO BE

MAYOR.

SHE HAS SHARED WHAT

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

GIVEN COWBOY FELLOWSHIP, AND

COWBOY FELLOWSHIP HAS GIVEN

TO RACHEL, AND RACHEL NOW

ENSURES THAT EVERYONE IN

THIS AREA RECEIVES THE SAME

BLESSING.

I NEVER KNEW -- I NEVER

KNEW THAT THERE WAS STILL

PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT

CARED.

I REALLY DIDN'T.

Terry: I THINK RACHEL

SHOULD BE MAYOR, TOO.

I LOVE WHAT HER HUSBAND

SAID.

YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES UNTIL

YOUR DOWN AND OUT, YOU DON'T

REALIZE THAT THERE ARE

PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO

STAND BY YOU, WHO ARE GOING

TO LOVE YOU.

AND IN THIS INSTANCE, IT IS

YOU, "700 CLUB" MEMBERS.

YOU ALLOW US TO PROVIDE FOOD

INTO THE OUT REACH, AND THEN

THEY TURN AROUND AND HELP

OTHERS.

WE ARE FAMILY.

OTHER.

IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE

HAITI'S DEVASTATING

EARTHQUAKE.

AND THE PEOPLE THERE ARE

STILL STRUGGLING TO REBUILD

THEIR LIVES.

THAT'S WHY CBN IS STILL ON

THE GROUND, MAKING SURE

HAITI'S ORPHANS HAVE A PLACE

TO CALL HOME.

Terry: FOR 5-YEAR-OLD

JEN LEON, THIS TENT HAS BEEN

HER BEDROOM EVERY NIGHT FOR

THE PAST THREE YEARS AT THIS

ORPHANAGE WHERE SHE NOW

LIVES.

SOMETIMES AT NIGHT, WHEN

I SLEPT IN THE TENT, IT IS

RAINING AND I GET WET AND

COLD.

Terry: THREE YEARS AGO,

JEN LEON'S PARENTS WERE

KILLED IN RANDOM GANG

VIOLENCE IN HAITI.

A KIND PASTOR TOOK HER INTO

HIS ORPHANAGE, THAT HE CAN

BARELY AFFORD TO RUN.

THIS IS SAMUEL, THE PASTOR'S

18-YEAR-OLD SON.

SHE IS A SWEET GIRL.

SOMETIMES WHEN WE HAVE A

PARTY, WE SING AND MAKE

MUSIC FOR THEM TO DANCE TO.

SHE IS LIKE A LITTLE SISTER

TO ME.

Terry: ONE OF THE

BIGGEST CHALLENGES FACING

THE OR NAG ORPHANAGE WAS

NOT HAVING A PLACE FOR ALL

OF THE CHILDREN TO SLEEP.

WHEN CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" LEARNED OF THEIR

SITUATION, WE BUILT TWO

DORMITORY BUILDINGS, ONE FOR

THE BOYS AND ONE FOR THE

GIRLS.

AND WE BOUGHT BUNK BEDS FOR

ALL OF THE CHILDREN TO HAVE

A BED TO SLEEP IN.

A SMILE CROSSED JEN LEON'S

FACE AS WE ASKED HER WHAT

SHE LIKED ABOUT HER NEW

BEDROOM.

I SLEEP MUCH BETTER NOW.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH,

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," FOR

EVERYTHING.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "700

CLUB," YOU'RE HELPING.

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER, JOIN

US.

Terry: TODAY PHYLLIS

RUNS A SUCCESSFUL BAKERY,

BUT NOT LONG AGO, THIS

SINGLE MOM AND HER FAMILY

WERE ON THE BRINK OF

STARVATION.

Reporter: ON MANY

OCCASIONS, 35-YEAR-OLD FIS

LI35-YEAR-OLD PHYLLIS HAD

ONLY ONE EGG TO FEED FIVE

PEOPLE.

HER

I KNEW ONE EGG WOULD NOT

FEED ALL OF US.

Reporter: HER DAUGHTER

AGREED.

BUT THE FAMILY

NOT ONLY

LEARNED TO SHARE FOOD,

DURING SCHOOL TIME, THE

YOUNGEST DAUGHTER HAD TO

SHARE A PAIR OF SHOES AND A

BOOK BAG TO GO TO SCHOOL.

I ASKED GOD, WHY IS THIS

HAPPENING?

Reporter: THEN ONE DAY

FIS LIPHYLLIS COULD TAKE IT

NO MORE AND DECIDED TO END

HER LIFE.

MOM TOOK A MACHETE AND

WENT TO A MOUNTAIN.

I FOLLOWED HER.

AND I TOLD HER, MOM, WHAT

ARE YOU DOING?

I PRAYED FOR HER AND ASKED

GOD TO FULFILL HIS

PROMISES.

THEN WE WENT HOME, CRYING,

TOGETHER.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" LEARNED

ABOUT PHYLLIS AND THE GIRLS,

WE GAVE THEM EVERYTHING THEY

NEEDED TO START A SMALL BAKE

BAKERY, AND WE TAUGHT

PHYLLIS HOW TO MANAGE THAT

SMALL BUSINESS.

THE DOUGHNUTS ARE NOW FAMOUS

IN HER NEIGHBORHOOD.

SIX MONTHS HAVE PASSED SINCE

WE HELPED HER START THAT

SMALL BUSINESS, AND WITH THE

MONEY SHE NOW MAKES, SHE CAN

BUY FOOD FOR THE FAMILY,

SHOES FOR THE GIRLS, AND

EVEN SAVE A LITTLE FOR

EMERGENCIES.

I THANK "OPERATION

BLESSING" FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY YOU GAVE ME TO

HELP MY FAMILY.

Terry: HOPE, HELP, A

FUTURE.

YOU DID ALL OF THAT WHEN YOU

JOINED "THE 700 CLUB."

WE SAY THANK YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: THE WIDOW IN

THIS NEXT STORY LOST

EVERYTHING IN A FLOOD.

WHEN CBN ARRIVED TO HELP HER

VILLAGE, WE GAVE HER MORE

THAN JUST FOOD AND

CLOTHING.

WE ALSO GAVE HER A WAY TO

Terry: WHEN FLOODS HIT

THE EAST COAST OF INDIA,

VILLAGERS FLED FOR THEIR

LIVES.

MESA LOST EVERYTHING.

OUR VILLAGE WAS SUBMERGED

UNDER WATER.

WE HAD

TO CLIMB ON TO THE

ROOF TOP.

WE HAD NOTHING TO EAT.

I LOST ALL OF MY GREENS.

Reporter: FIVE YEARS

AGO, HER HUSBAND DIED.

SHE MADE A LIVING SELLING

MILK, BUT NOW SHE HAD NO WAY

TO TAKE CARE OF HERSELF.

SHE IS A CHRISTIAN, SO SHE

PRAYED TO JESUS FOR HELP.

SOON CBN CAME TO HER VILLAGE

WITH FOOD AND OTHER

ESSENTIAL ITEMS.

I'M SO THANKFUL TO CBN

FOR HELPING US DURING OUR

MOST DIFFICULT TIME.

Terry: WE WANTED TO BE

SURE SHE WOULD BE ABLE TO

MAKE IT ON HER OWN, SO WE

GAVE HER A COW.

NOW SHE'LL BE ABLE TO

SUPPORT HERSELF BY SELLING

MILK AGAIN.

IT WAS A MIRACLE THAT THE

LORD BROUGHT YOU HERE AND

LEFT ME WITH A COW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

TREATING ME LIKE FAMILY.

Gordon: THANK YOU FOR

TREATING ME LIKE FAMILY.

THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO DO

FOR FOLKS.

FAMILY OF GOD, THAT WE'RE

ALL CHILDREN OF THE MOST

HIGH GOD.

WE NEED TO HELP EACH OTHER.

WE NEED TO LOVE ONE

ANOTHER.

AND WE NEED TO CARE FOR ONE

ANOTHER.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS HAS ASKED

US TO DO.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

WELCOME TO "700 CLUB." FORTY

YEARS AGO THE SUPREME COURT

ISSUES ABORTION LEGAL IN ALL 50

STATES

TERRY: IT SPARKED A DEBATE.

AS CHARLENE ISRAEL REPORTS, IT

CAN CLAIM VICTORIES.

ABORTION IS COMPLETELY A

PRIVATE MATTER IN THE FIRST

THREE MONTHS OF PREGNANCY.

REPORTER: BOTH SIDES CLAIMING

VICTORY AND NEITHER BACKING

DOWN.

WE ARE GOING TO KEEP ON GOING

AND NOT GOING TO STOP UNTIL

EVERY CHILD IS SAFE.

I HAVE A BODY AND IT IS MY

RIGHT TO CONTROL.

REPORTER: THE DECISION MADE

BY THE SUPREME COURT BACK IN

1973 COSTED 50 MILLION PEOPLE.

AFTER THE ROE V. WADE, AMERICAN

BECAME ONE OF THE ONLY WESTERN

COUNTRIES TO OFFER NO LEGAL

PROTECTION TO THE UNBORN AT ANY

STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT.

PRO-LIFERS CAN CLAIM VICTORIES,

19 STATES PUT LAWS IN PLACE TO

PROTECT.

A NUMBER OF ABORTION CLINICS HAS

FALLEN FROM 2200 IN 1991 TO 660.

NUMBER OF ABORTIONS HAS BEEN

FALLING, TOO.

MOST EVERY YEAR THE MARCH FOR

LIFE IS HELD IN THE NATION'S

CAPITOL ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF

THE ROE V. WADE DECISION.

NOT THIS YEAR.

INSTEAD, IT WILL BE FRIDAY THAT

WILL GIVE IT A FEW DAYS

SEPARATION FROM PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S INAUGURATION EARLIER IN

THE WEEK.

ONE PRO-LIFE PRODUCED A VIDEO.

THEY USED PRESIDENT OBAMA'S OWN

WORDS ABOUT PROTECTING CHILDREN

FROM HIS ADDRESS TO THE NATION

AFTER THE SANDY HOOK TRAGEDY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: CAN WE SAY

WE ARE DOING ENOUGH TO KEEP OUR

CHILDREN, ALL OF THEM, SAFE FROM

HARM?

I HAVE BEEN REFLECTING ON THIS

THE LAST FEW DAYS, IF WE ARE

HONEST WITH OURSELVES, THE

ANSWER IS NO.

REPORTER: CHARLENE ISRAEL,

CBN NEWS.

GORDAN: ABORTION HAS BECOME A

HOT POLITICAL TOPIC IN IRELAND,

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS THE STORY

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

REPORTER: THANKS, GORDAN.

AS MANY AS 30,000 RALLIED IN

DUBLIN CALLING ON THE GOVERNMENT

TO KEEP THEIR PRO-LIFE PROMISES.

THE GOVERNMENT SAID THEY WOULD

ALLOW IT IN CERTAIN CASES.

ANNOUNCEMENT CAME AFTER A

31-YEAR-OLD INDIAN WOMAN DIED

AFTER BEING DENIED AN ABORTION.

PRO-LIFE LEADERS SAY THE WOMAN

DIED FROM AN INFECTION FOLLOWING

AN INFECTION AND HOSPITAL

RECORDS HAVE NO REPORT OF

ABORTION.

NOW THEY SAY THE FACTS WERE

MUDDLED.

PRESIDENT OBAMA BECAME THE FIRST

PRESIDENT TO EMBRACE GAY RIGHTS

AND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN A

SWEARING-IN SPEECH.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: OUR JOURNEY

IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL OUR GAY

BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE TREATED

LIKE ANYONE ELSE UNDER THE LAW.

IF WE ARE TRULY CREATED EQUAL,

SURELY THE LOVE WE COMMIT TO ONE

ANOTHER MUST BE EQUAL AS WELL.

REPORTER: WASHINGTON HAS TO

ACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND

DISAGREED WITH THOSE THAT SAY

THE GOVERNMENT IS SPENDING TOO

MUCH ON WELFARE AND ENTITLEMENT

PROGRAMS.

AN IRANIAN-AMERICAN PASTOR GOES

TO TRIAL IN IRAN.

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI -- HIS

CLIENT CHRISTIAN ACTIVITIES

MOTIVATED BY HIS FAITH, NOT

POLITICS.

IF CONVICTED SAEED ABEDINI COULD

FACE THE DEATH PENALTY.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND

JUSTICE URGED PRESIDENT OBAMA

AND HILARY CLINTON TO SPEAK OUT

PUBLICALLY FOR ABEDINI.

GORDAN?

GORDAN: I ENCOURAGE YOU TO

CALL YOUR SENATOR.

THIS PASTOR IS AN AMERICAN

CITIZEN AND ACCUSED OF

UNDERMINING THE STATE OF IRAN BY

ESTABLISHING HOUSE CHURCHES

AFTER CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY.

HE IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE RECENT

PRESS REPORTS THAT THE IRANIAN

GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO LET HIM

OUT ON BAIL.

ACCORDING TO HIS WIFE WHO LIVES

IN OHIO, THIS IS A RUSE BY THE

IRANIAN GOVERNMENT IN ORDER TO

STOP THE INTERNATIONAL PRESS.

THEY ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO THAT

RIGHT NOW.

WE NEED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON.

WE NEED TO GET THEM RELEASED.

WE'LL BACK WITH MORE OF THE "THE

700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

GORDAN: WHEN RUSS SMITH GOT

LAID OFF, HE TOOK A SERIES OF

PART TIME JOBS TO MAKE ENDS

MEET.

ONE DAY HE PRAYED AN UNUSUAL

PRAYER.

SIX WEEKS LATER HE GOT AN ANSWER

HE NEVER EXPECTED.

REPORTER: RUSS WAS AT CHURCH

WHEN HE FIRST HEARD GOD WANTS US

TO TITHE 10% OF OUR INCOME.

I SAID OKAY, IF YOU GIVE ME

THE MONEY, I'LL TITHE.

HE KEPT COMING BACK, NO, YOU

TITHE AND I'LL GIVE YOU THE

MONEY.

I SAID FINE, I'LL TITHE 10% OF

EVERY PENNY AND WHEN I AM BROKE

AND ON THE STREET I CAN TELL YOU

I TOLD YOU SO

REPORTER: HIS RESISTANCE

DIDN'T LAST LONG.

ABOUT SIX WEEKS LATER, I GOT

A JOB MAKING THREE TIMES WHAT I

MAID.

I WAS INDIGNANT AND DIZ RESPECT

REPORTER: A FEW YEARS LATER

HE MARRIED ROSE AND STARTED A

BLENDED FAMILY.

I WAS NERVOUS BECAUSE I WAS

CONCERNED, HOW ARE WE GOING TO

PAY FOR TITHING AND BILLS AND

KIDS.

ALL THAT.

GOD HAS COME THROUGH FOR US

TREMENDOUSLY IN MORE WAYS THAN I

CAN EXPRESS.

REPORTER: ON TOP OF TITHING

TO THEIR CHURCH, RUSS AND ROSE

GIVE TO CBN.

"THE 700 CLUB" IS THE MOST

WONDERFUL THING I HAVE COME

ACROSS.

STORIES ARE ENCOURAGING AND SEE

HOW THE MONEY IS BENEFITTING

OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY IN

NEED IS IMPORTANT

REPORTER: IN 2008 RUSS WAS

LAID OFF FROM HIS JOB.

THEY CONSIDERED STOPPING THEIR

PLEDGE TO CBN.

THE THING THAT CAME TO MIND

WAS IF I CHOOSE TO DO THAT WHERE

IS MY FAITH, AND IF THERE IS

EVER A TIME WE ARE DISCIPLINED

TO THE MONEY WE ARE OFFERING TO

"THE 700 CLUB" IT WOULD HAVE TO

BE NOW.

I HAD A PEACE THAT CAME OVER

ME THAT MADE ME UNDERSTAND GOD

WAS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF US.

STOP FRETTING

REPORTER: THE SMITHS

BELIEVE THAT GOD CONTINUES TO

PROVIDE.

RUSS GIVES SKATEBOARD LESSONS

AND ROSE STARTED HER OWN

CLEANING BUSINESS.

TITHING IS NOT JUST

OBEDIENCE, IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY

TO TAKE YOUR TRUST OUT OF THE

HANDS OF WHAT YOUR MONEY CAN DO

AND PUT IT IN THE HANDS OF GOD.

HE HAS TAKE TENNESSEE CARE OF

EVERY NEED WE HAVE HAD.

GORDAN: TITHING IS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE BY FAITH.

PROMISE FROM HEBREWS 11 WITHOUT

FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE

HIM.

HE IS A REWARDER OF THOSE WHO

DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.

RUSS MADE A DECISION, I AM GOING

TO SEEK GOD WITH MY TITHES AND

OFFERINGS.

HE WAS ACTUALLY THINKING HE

WOULD END UP PENNINESS, GOD

PROVIDED FOR THEM.

HE'LL DO THAT FOR YOU IF YOU

TRUST HIM.

IN THIS RECESSION, MANY

AMERICANS ARE LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK.

NOT DOUG AND EMILY MEECHIM.

THEY ONLY LIVE ON HALF THEIR

INCOME.

WHAT THEY DO WITH THE OTHER HALF

IS CHANGING LIVES AROUND THE

WORLD.

*

REPORTER: DOUG MEECHIM IS

THIRD GENERATION PASTOR WITH A

PASSION FOR MUSIC.

HE CREDITS THE SUCCESS OF HIS

CHRISTIAN BAND WITH TITHING.

WIFE EMILY LEARNED ABOUT

BENEFITS OF TITHING THROUGH A

TEENAGER.

I GOT A $2 AN HOUR RAISE AND

SNOWBALLED

REPORTER: WHEN DOUG AND EMILY

GOT MARRIED, THEY GAVE

CONSISTENTLY TO THE CHURCH AND

CBN.

I HEARD PEOPLE TALK ABOUT CBN

FOR YEARS.

I THOUGHT IT WAS FOR OLD PEOPLE.

I SAW IT ONE DAY AND ENDED UP IN

TEARS AND NOW I RECORD IT

EVERYDAY AND WATCH IT FAITHFULLY

REPORTER: DURING THE DOWNTURN

IN THE ECONOMY, THEY PULLED BACK

FROM OTHER MINISTRIES.

SEEMED LIKE THE BILLS WOULD

PILE UP AND THINNER AND THINNER

ON THE FINANCIAL SIDE.

I ONLY GAVE WHAT I ABSOLUTELY

HAD TO.

THINGS WERE JUST BEING COVERED.

IF I ONLY TRUSTED GOD TO JUST

PAY THE BILLS AND NOTHING EXTRA,

I PUT HIM IN A BOX.

REPORTER: THEY COULDN'T SEEM

TO SELL A RENTAL PROPERTY THEY

OWN.

SHE LOST HER PART TIME JOB.

SHE AND DOUG DECIDED IT WAS TIME

TO START GIVING AGAIN.

I HEARD A TEACHING, PAT WAS

TALKING ABOUT THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

WHETHER IT IS $5 OR $50.

I DID $5 INCREMENTS, EVERY TIME

GOD DID SOMETHING AMAZING.

REPORTER: SHE FOUND ANOTHER

JOB SHE LOVED TEACHING DANCE

CLASSES AT A CHRISTIAN STUDIO.

I GOT DOUBLE THE CLASSES.

CAME AT A GREAT TIME.

I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO THE OTHER

JOB, DOING LESS HOURS AND MORE

MONEY AND MINISTERING TO PEOPLE

ALSO.

WE WERE FAITHFUL IN GIVING, I

STARTED GIVING TO THE LORD.

HE BLESSED US AND WE ENDED UP

SELLING THE PROPERTY JUST AT THE

RIGHT MOMENT

REPORTER: DOUGS BAND NEW

METHOD STARTED GETTING NEW JOBS.

THEY CONTINUE TO GIVE TO THE

CHURCH AND NUMEROUS MINISTRIES

INCLUDING CBN.

I DIDN'T REALIZE GOD CALLS

YOU TO GIVE MORE.

GOD OWNS EVERYTHING.

HE DOESN'T NEED MY MONEY.

IT IS MY FAITH LEVEL.

DO I TRUST GOD TO PROVIDE FOR

ALL MY NEEDS?

TODAY THE MEECHIM'S GIVE AWAY

NEARLY HALF THEIR INCOME IN

TITHES AND OFFERINGS.

I WANT TO PROVIDE EVERYTHING

I EVER WANTED, YOUR HEART'S

DESIRES, PHYSICAL AND FINANCIAL

NEEDS.

HE SUSTAINED US IN JOY,

HAPPINESS, PEACE.

WE ARE GIVING TO GOD.

AS YOU INCREASE HE INCREASES,

YOU CAN'T OUT GIVE GOD.

GORDAN: DOUG AND EMILY

LEARNED THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

EMILY WAS WATCHING THIS VERY

PROGRAM AND HEARD ABOUT THAT.

HERE IT IS, LUKE CHAPTER 6 THESE

ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS: GIVE

AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU.

LET ME STOP THERE.

THAT SEEMS COUNTER INTUITIVE.

THE WORLD WANTS YOU TO THINK,

WHEN YOU BECOME WEALTHY, THEN

YOU CAN AFFORD TO GIVE.

THAT IS NOT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

THE BIBLE SAYS GIVE AND IT WILL

BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

THAT IS WHY WE CALL IT THE LAW

OF RECIPROCITY.

IT IS SIMILAR TO NEWTON'S THIRD

LAW OF MOTION.

FOR EVERY ACTION THERE IS AN

EQUAL AND OPPOSITE REACTION.

YOU PUT IT INTO PRACTICE, YOU

GIVE.

AS EMILY HEARD WHETHER IT IS $5

OR $50, IF YOU START AND SAY I

AM GOING TO GIVE, THEN YOU GET

THIS WONDERFUL PROMISE.

IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU, A GOOD

MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN, SHAKEN

TOGETHER, RUNNING OVER.

THAT IS ALL WONDERFUL STUFF.

GOOD MEASURE, RUNNING OVER WILL

BE POURED INTO YOUR LAP.

HERE IS THE KEY FOR WITH THE

MEASURE YOU USE, IT WILL BE

MEASURED TO YOU.

DOUG AND EMILY STARTED SMALL.

NOW THEY ARE MEASURING LARGELY

BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHAT CAN

HAPPEN WITH THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY.

THEY ARE MEASURING OUT HALF

THEIR INCOME.

THAT IS VERY UNUSUAL.

THAT IS A LIFE OF GENEROSITY.

IN THAT THEY HAVE GOTTEN THE

REASSU

REASSUREANCE THEY SAW THE LAW OF

RECIPROCITY WORKED FOR THEM.

IF I CAN GET A DRUM ROLL, CBN

DONORS LIKE DOUG AND EMILY WANT

TO GIVE GENEROUSLY AND CHALLENGE

OTHERS TO LIVE THE GENEROUS

LIFE.

GLEN TO GET OUT OF DEBT AND INTO

A NEW JOB.

YOU LIVE TO WORK NOT WORK TO

LIVE.

I WAS LIVING TO WORK.

REPORTER: GLEN COX'S LIFE

RESOLVED OVER A RESTAURANT

MANAGER.

HIS WIFE, MICHELLE PACKED UP THE

KIDS AND MOVED OUT.

HIS CAREER IS ALL HE HAD LEFT.

WHEN MICHELLE LEFT I HAD TO

SEARCH FOR A BIGGER FAITH, TO

GROW UP.

I HAD TO ASK GOD FOR THE FIRST

TIME TO SAY, LORD I HAVE BEEN

WRONG.

HELP ME SEE THE RIGHT WAY.

GLEN STARTED GOING TO CHURCH.

I TOOK SMALL STEPS.

TRIED TO BE A DAD.

GOT A JOB THAT DIDN'T OWN ME.

STARTED TO BECOMING A GIVER,

ATTENDING CHURCH REGULARLY.

PRAYED AND HAD FAITH.

REPORTER: GLEN ALSO HAD TO

DEAL WITH A LOT OF DEBT.

TOTAL DEBT WAS SOME WHERE IN

THE $330,000 RANGE.

IT HAPPENED ONE BAD DECISION AT

A TIME.

REPORTER: WHILE HE SLOWLY

WORKED HIS WAY OUT OF DEBT, GLEN

DECIDED TO BECOME A "THE 700

SHOULDN'T YOU DO IT MORE?

I HAVE TO DO IT AND DO IT

CONSISTENTLY NO MATTER WHAT.

REPORTER: GLEN GOT OUT OF THE

RESTAURANT BUSINESS COMPLETELY

AND MOVED TO BE CLOSER TO

MICHELLE AND KIDS.

I KNEW MY MOTIVES WERE ABOUT

GETTING MY FAMILY RIGHT SO I HAD

TO GET OUT OF THE JOB THAT

TRAPPED ME AND HAD TO GIVE UP

THE BIG SALARY TO DO IT.

IT WAS NOT ABOUT THE MONEY, IT

WAS ABOUT THAT JOB OWNED ME.

COATED DRIVEWAYS.

IT WAS A BY-PRODUCT FROM THAT

POINTS TO NOW, IT WAS AMAZING.

I STARTED WITH NOTHING.

FIRST YEAR, 350 CUSTOMERS, TODAY

WE HAVE OVER 20,000 CUSTOMERS.

I CAN'T SAY THERE IS ANYTHING

MAGICAL ABOUT THE WAY I SEAL

COATED DRIVEWAYS.

I THINK IT IS GOD.

REPORTER: CHANGES IN GLEN'S

LIFE ALSO INFLUENCED MICHELLE.

THE COUPLE RECONCILED AND

MICHELLE CAME A CHRISTIAN.

I COULD SEE EVERYTHING HE DID

WAS FROM HIS HEART.

IT WAS HIS FAITH THAT REALLY WAS

THE CATALYST THAT PUSHED ME IN

THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

THE WAY WE INTERACT AND TREAT

EACH OTHER IS BASED ON RESPECT,

LOVE, GOD DECISION.

REPORTER: TODAY GLEN AND

MICHELLE ARE MEMBERS OF CBN'S

CHAIRMAN CIRCLE.

I AM EXCITED HOW MUCH I CAN

GIVE TO MY CHURCH.

I DON'T DO IT WITH HOPE OF

GETTING SOMETHING BACK.

IT KEEPS COMING.

IT IS GOOFY.

GORDAN: GLEN LEARNED A GREAT

SECRET.

THAT IS DON'T THINK IT IS YOUR

OWN HARD WORK THAT LEADS TO

WEALTH.

IS HARD WORK PART OF THE

EQUATION, YEAH?

HERE IS A WARNING FROM GOD TO

THE ISREALITES AS THEY ARE

ENTERING THE PROMISE LAND,

DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 8, NEVER

THINK IT WAS YOUR OWN STRENGTH

AND ENERGY THAT MADE YOU

WEALTHY.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT IT IS THE

LORD, YOUR GOD, WHO GIVES YOU

THE POWER TO BECOME RICH.

ONCE GLEN UNDERSTOOD THAT, IT

COMES FROM GOD, HE SAID I AM

GOING TO LIVE FOR GOD.

I HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD AS A

RESTAURANT MANAGER, I HAVE A

BUNCH OF DEBT AND LOST MY

FAMILY.

I NEED TO MOVE TO BE CLOSER TO

MY GIRLS SO I CAN BE A DAD.

TOGETHER.

JD STARTED WATCHING CBN.

THE LORD STARTED TALKING TO

ME.

A WOMAN HAD MY SIMILAR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

THE INSTANT I SAW IT, THE LORD

SPOKE TO ME AND SAID THAT WAS

WHERE I NEEDED TO GIVE.

THE COUPLE HAD BEEN FAITHFUL

TITHERS OF THEIR CHURCH EVEN

DURING JD'S UNEMPLOYMENT.

HE KNEW GIVING TO CBN BEYOND

THAT WOULD BE A STRETCH.

IT WAS DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN

TO MY WIFE I WAS GOING TO DONATE

MONEY AND I DIDN'T HAVE A JOB.

CAN'T SAY YOU TRUST, I NEEDED TO

TAKE ACTION

RATHER THAN WORSHIPPING HARD

WORK, WORSHIPPING MY COMPANY,

WORSHIPPING MONEY.

NEEDED TO SURRENDER AND WORSHIP

THEM.
