AND COLOR.

CLUB."

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS NICE TO BE BACK WITH

YOU AFTER A FEW COUPLE OF

WEEKS OF TELETHON.

Terry: YES.

I ALMOST DIDN'T RECOGNIZE

YOU.

Pat: I'M TRYING TO

LEARN WHAT YOU DO.

YOU SAID, WELL, YOU READ

THIS STUFF.

Terry: A COUPLE MORE

YEARS AND YOU'LL GET THIS

DOWN.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

TELL YOU ABOUT THE FLU

SEASON AND HOW TO AVOID IT.

PEOPLE SAY, IS IT THE HEIGHT

OF IT?

IT PROBABLY IS, AND MORE

COMING.

THIS THING HAS SWEPT THE

NATION.

LAURIE JOHNSON IS GOING TO

BE HERE TO GIVE YOU SOME

VERY, VERY IMPORTANT TIPS.

IN THE NEWS, AN AMERICAN

PASTOR FACES EIGHT YEARS IN

A BRUTAL PRISON IN IRAN.

AFTER BEING CONVICTED ON

CHARGES TIED TO HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS FIGHTING FOR

HIS RELEASE.

Terry: CBN NEWS SPOKE

WITH THE PASTOR'S WIFE AND

THE WHITE HOUSE ABOUT WHAT

IS BEING DONE TO SET HIM

FREE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

EVERY DAY IN THAT PRISON

IS A DEATH SENTENCE.

IT IS A HORRIFIC PRISON.

AND ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN.

Reporter: EVIN PRISON

IS ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL IN

IRAN, AND NEGHME ABEDINI

WANTS HER HUSBAND OUT OF

IT.

SHE IS FOCUSING HER

ATTENTION ON FIGHTING FOR

HIS RELEASE.

THE U.S. DEPARTMENT IS

NOW IN CONTACT WITH ME ON A

DAILY BASIS.

THEY DID RELEASE STATEMENTS

WITH THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF

STATE AND THE WHITE HOUSE,

THAT THEY WOULD DO WHATEVER

RESOURCES THEY HAD

INTERNALLY, AND ALSO

INTERNATIONALLY THEY WOULD

USE TO GET SAEED OUT OF

IRAN, AND THEY DEMANDED THAT

THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT

RELEASE SAEED, WHICH WAS A

POWERFUL STATEMENT, I

APPRECIATE THEM DOING THAT,

AND WE'RE WORKING ON WHAT

AVENUES ARE AVAILABLE TO US

TO GET HIM OUT.

Reporter: SHE ASKED JAY

CARNE ABOUT SAEED'S PLIGHT

IN MONDAY'S BRIEFING.

DUE TO THE SITUATION IN

IRAN, WHAT CAN THE U.S. DO,

OR THE ADMINISTRATION DO,

FOR THIS CASE AND SUCH CASES

LIKE IT?

SHOULD THIS FAMILY HAVE ANY

HOPE THAT YOU CAN HELP IN

THIS SITUATION.

WE CONDEMN IRAN'S

INDIVIDUAL RIGHT OF FREEDOM,

AND WE CALL ON THE IRANIAN

AUTHORITIES TO RELEASE SAEED

ABEDINI.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS IN

CLUES CONTACT WITH THE

FAMILY, AND IS ACTIVELY

ENGAGED ON THIS CASE.

FOR FURTHER DETAILS, I THINK

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS THE

BEST PLACE TO GO.

WE HAVE A VARIETY OF MEANS,

INCLUDING THIS PODIUM, TO

EXPRESS OUR USE ON MATTERS

LIKE THIS.

Reporter: THE AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE

REPRESENTS ABEDINI AND HER

FAMILY.

OUR GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO

TAKE THE LEAD ON STANDING

FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND

MAKING SURE THAT EVERY

BACK-DOOR CHANNEL AND THIRD

PARTY CONNECTION AND

GOVERNMENTS THAT CAN

INFLUENCE IRAN TO UP HOLD

ITS RIGHTS OF THE CITIZENS

IN IRAN, BUT ALSO THAT OF

THE WORLD CITIZENS, LIKE

PASTOR SAEED.

WE HOPE OUR GOVERNMENT WILL

TAKE THAT STAND.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: PRAY FOR THOSE WHO

ARE IN PRISON, AND PRAY FOR

THOSE WHO ARE FALSELY

ACCUSED, AND LET YOUR VOICES

BE HEARD.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS ON THE

ROAD TODAY IN SUPPORT OF

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

LEE?

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE PRESIDENT IS LAUNCHING

HIS PUSH FOR NEW IMMIGRATION

LAWS IN LAS VEGAS.

THE PRESIDENT LARGELY

SUPPORTING A MEASURE OFFERED

BY EIGHT SENATORS, FOUR

REPUBLICANS, FOUR

DEMOCRATS.

THEY CALL THEIR FRAMEWORK

TOUGH, BUT FAIR.

IT BOOSTS BORDER SECURITY,

REQUIRES EMPLOYERS TO VERIFY

THE LEGAL STATUS OF WORKERS,

AND APPROVES A PATH TO

CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS ALREADY IN THE

U.S.

THEY WANT TO PASS THE BILL

BY THE SUMMER, AND

SUPPORTERS SAY IT IS LONG

EVERY DUE.

THE VAST MAJORITIES

BELIEVE WE NEED TO HAVE A

LEGAL IMMIGRATION SYSTEM

THAT WORKS.

AND THEY RECOGNIZE WHAT WE

HAVE NOW IS NOT A 21st

CENTURY LEGAL IMMIGRATION

SYSTEM.

IT IS QUITE WITHIN REACH

FOR US TO REACH A CONSENSUS

IN THIS COUNTRY THAT CAN DO

JUSTICE FOR MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE, BUT, EQUALLY

IMPORTANT, TO MAKE OUR

ECONOMY WHAT IT REALLY

SHOULD BE.

Lee: DESPITE THE

BIPARTISAN SUPPORT, IT FACES

A TOUGH MEASURE IN

CONGRESS.

BUT AFTER THE NOVEMBER

ELECTION, IT IS CLEAR THE

REPUBLICANS HAVE TO RE-THINK

THIS ISSUE.

Pat: WELL, THEY'VE BEEN

SO VOCAL AGAINST

IMMIGRATION.

IT IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE.

AND THE RHETORIC IN THE

PRIM PRIMARY IS VERY

OBNOXIOUS, AND FOR OBAMA TO

TALK ABOUT SELF-DEPORTATION

IS NONSENSE.

AND THE HISPANICS HAVE

REVOLTED AGAINST IT.

ALTHOUGH MANY, MANY

HISPANICS IN THE UNITED

STATES UNDERSTAND YOU JUST

CAN'T OPEN YOUR BORDERS TO

EVERYBODY WHO WANTS TO GO

INTO YOUR COUNTRY.

YOU CAN'T DO THAT.

NO NATION CAN DO THAT.

THEY HAVE TO SECURE TH THE

BORDERS.

BUT WITH MAR MARCO RUBIO

LEADING THE CHARGE, I THINK

THE REPUBLICANS WILL JOIN

WITH THE DEMOCRATS AND THERE

BE A BIPARTISAN SOLUTION.

IT IS LONG OVERDUE.

THEY ALMOST HAD ONE WHEN

GEORGE BUSH WAS PRESIDENT,

BUT SOME OF THE HARDLINERS

SHOT IT DOWN.

THIS TIME MAYBE IT WILL

WORK.

Lee: HEDGE FUND

EXECUTIVES ARE HEADING

SOUTH, AND NOT JUST FOR THE

WEATHER.

HIGH FINANCE FIRMS ARE

LEAVING THE HIGH TAX

ENVIRONMENT OF NEW YORK CITY

FOR THE LOWER TAXES OF

FLORIDA.

FLORIDA HAS NO STATE INCOME

TAX, BUT STATE AND LOCAL

TAXES IN NEW YORK AMOUNT TO

NEARLY 15%.

BUSINESS PROPERTY IS ALSO

MUCH CHEAPER IN FLORIDA THAN

NEW YORK, AND FLORIDA IS

ONLY TOO HAPPY TO WELCOME

THEIR NEW RESIDENTS.

PALM BEACH HAS SET UP AN

OFFICE JUST TO ANSWER

QUESTIONS FROM NEW YORK

HEDGE FUNDS LOOKING TO MOVE

SOUTH.

RUSH LIMBAUGH IS SAYING,

HEY, COME ON DOWN, THE

WEATHER IS JUST FINE.

HE MOVED TO FLORIDA YEARS

AGO.

Pat: THERE IS A BIG

FLAP ABOUT PHIL MICKELSON

WHO SAID, I'M GOING TO

RE-THINK IT.

OF COURSE HE IS GOING TO

RE-THINK IT.

ANYBODY WHO MAKES 4 MILLION

OR 10 MILLION -- WHATEVER HE

MAKES, THE TAX BITE IN

CALIFORNIA IS BRUTAL.

IF YOU FIGURE LOCAL AND

STATE TAXES IN NEW YORK, IF

THAT NUMBER IS RIGHT, 15%,

OUT OF A MILLION DOLLARS,

THAT IS $150,000.

THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY.

AND PROPERTY IS RELATIVELY

INEXPENSIVE IN FLORIDA, AND

THE CLIMATE IS VERY LOVELY,

AND THERE IS NO STATE INCOME

TAX.

AND NO INHERITANCE TAX IF

YOU MOVE DOWN THERE.

IT IS QUITE A DEAL.

SO I GUESS THE FLORIDA

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE COULD

GIVE US A NOD FOR THIS

PROMOTION.

IT BEATS SNOWY WINTERS IN

MANHATTAN.

WHEN I LIVED IN NEW YORK,

THE COMMUTE WAS BRUTAL.

AS I RECALL, I USED TO SPEND

TWO, THREE HOURS GOING TO

AND FROM.

I HAD A TRAIN TO THE FERRY,

AND I HAD TO TAKE A FERRY

ACROSS THE BAY INTO

MANHATTAN.

I HAD TO WALK TO THE SUBWAY,

AND THEN I TOOK THE SUBWAY

TO MIDTOWN, AND THEN WALK TO

THE OFFICE.

AND THEN I HAD TO RETURN AND

DO THAT ALL OVER AGAIN.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT TWO, THREE

HOURS OUT OF YOUR LIFE.

IN FLORIDA, YOU GET IN THE

CAR AND IT IS SUNNY AND

PRETTY AND YOU DRIVE DOWN

AND YOU'VE GOT A SPORTS

SHIRT ON.

AND YOU GO OUT AND PLAY GOLF

AFTER 2:00 IN THE

AFTERNOON.

DOESN'T THAT SOUND NICE?

Terry: YOU'RE

LONGING --

Pat: ON TO FLORIDA.

THAT SONG, NORTH TO

ALASKA --

Terry: SOUTH TO

FLORIDA.

Pat: THE MOVE IS ON.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, I MISS MY

HOME STATE THIS TIME OF

YEAR, BUT NOT IN AUGUST.

THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA

MAY END ITS BAN ON GAY

SCOUTS AND LEADERS.

THE NEW POLICY WOULD REMOVE

THE BAN FROM THE NATIONAL

RULES, AND LEAVE IT UP TO

THE LOCAL CHAPTERS TO DECIDE

IF THEY INCLUDE GAY

MEMBERS.

A SPOKESMAN TO RON SMITH

SAYS UNDER THE PROPOSED

CHAIN, THE BOY COWTS, WOULD

BOY SCOUTS, UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCES, DICTATE A

UNIT TO MEMBERS OR PARENTS.

CHRISTIAN GROUPS OPPOSE THE

CHANGE, THOUGH.

SOUTHERN BAPTIST LEADERS SAY

THE STEP MIGHT ENCOURAGE

THEIR CHURCHES TO SUPPORT

OTHER BOYS' ORGANIZATIONS

INSTEAD.

A FINAL DECISION BY THE BOY

SCOUTS' LEADERS COULD COME

AS SOON AS NEXT WEEK.

KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED THE

NEXT TIME YOU'RE AT THE CASH

REGISTER.

YOU COULD GET HIT WITH A NEW

CREDIT CARD SURCHARGE.

40 STATES ARE NOW ALLOWING

THE NEW CHARGES.

THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY

CHARGES A FEE UP TO 4% EVERY

TIME SOMEONE USES A CREDIT

CARD, BUT NOW IT IS LEGAL

FOR BUSINESSES TO PASS THAT

FEE ON TO THE CUSTOMER.

FOR EXAMPLE, A $400 LAPTOP

COULD COST YOU AN EXTRA

$16.

WHEN YOU WALK IN, THERE

HAS TO BE A SIGN

CONSPICUOUSLY DISPLAYED,

INDICATING THEY DO

SURCHARGE.

THEN AT THE CASH REGISTER,

AND ALSO ON YOUR RECEIPT,

THEY HAVE TO CLEARLY

DISCLOSE WHAT THE SURCHARGE

IS.

Lee: 10 STATES HAVE

BLOCKED BUSINESSES FROM

PASSING THE FEES ON TO

COSTUMERS, AND SOME BIG

RETAILERS, LIKE WAL-MART,

SAY THEY WILL CONTINUE TO

PAY THEM, INSTEAD OF PASSING

THEM ON TO THE COSTUMERS.

A GROUP OF FLORIDA WOMEN

PROVED JUST HOW POWERFUL

PRAYER COULD BE.

THEY THWARTED A WOULD-BE

ROBBERY BY BOLDLY CALLING ON

THE NAME OF JESUS.

JACKIE WAS HOSTING A JEWELRY

PARTY WHEN A ROBBER BURST

INTO HER HOME.

AT FIRST THE WOMEN THOUGHT

IT WAS PART OF A GAME, BUT

WHEN THEY REALIZED IT WAS

NOT, THEY PUT THEIR FAITH

INTO ACTION.

THAT'S WHEN I FELT THIS

BOLDNESS COME IN ME, AND I

STOOD UP, AND I SAID, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS, GET OUT OF MY

HOUSE.

AND HE SAID, I'M GOING TO

SHOOT SOMEBODY IF YOU DON'T

DO WHAT I SAY.

AND I REPEATED IT, AND AS I

DID, THE LADIES STARTED

CHANTING, JESUS, JESUS,

JESUS.

HE DID A QUICK SCAN OF THE

ROOM, AND HIS LOOK OF TERROR

CAME OVER HIS FACE, AND HE

TURNED AROUND AND RAN OUT

THE DOOR AND THAT WAS THE

END OF IT.

Lee: THE WOULD-BE

ROBBER WAS CAUGHT LATER

AFTER ATTEMPTING TO ROB

ANOTHER WOMAN.

HAGLER SAYS IT SHOWED HER

JUST HOW MUCH GOD IS HER

SHIELD AND PROTECTOR.

GREAT STORY, PAT.

Pat: I LOVE IT.

I LOVE IT.

KEEP THAT IN MIND.

WE HAVE OTHER STORIES OF

WOMEN WHO ARE BOLD IN THE

FACE OF DEATH, INSTEAD OF

COWERING IN THE CORNER, AND

SAYING THERE IS POWER IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, THE

SURGEON WHO DIED AND WENT TO

HEAVEN.

THEY BEGAN TAKING ME DOWN

THE EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL

PATH, EXPLODING WITH BEAUTY

AND COLOR.

Terry: SEE HER EYE

WITNESS ACCOUNT OF LIFE

BEYOND THE GRAVE.

FIRST, A GROUNDBREAKING

SCENE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST

THE FLU.

LAURIE JOHNSON JOINS US WITH

THE LATEST HEALTH NEWS AFTER@@

THIS.

.

*

Pat: FLU!

FLU!

YOU HEARD ABOUT IT, AND THEY

SAY WE'RE SUFFERING FROM ONE

OF THE WORST FLU SEASONS IN

YEARS.

AND IT'S PEAKING RIGHT NOW.

47 STATES REPORT WIDESPREAD

FLUOUFLU OUTBREAKS WITH

DEATHS RUNNING INTO

THOUSANDS.

37 OF THESE DEATHS ARE

CHILDREN WHO HAVE DIED FROM

THE FLU.

HEALTH REPORTER LAURIE

JOHNSON EXPLAINS THE BEST

WAYS TO TRY TO KEEP THE FLU

OUT OF YOUR HOME.

Reporter: THIS YEAR THE

FLU SEASON HIT EARLY, AND IT

WILL LIKELY LAST UNTIL

APRIL.

ACCORDING TO THE C.D.C., THE

BEST PREVENTION IS A FLU

SHOT.

AND IT'S STILL NOT TOO LATE

TO GET ONE.

ALSO REMEMBER, THE SHOT

WON'T GIVE YOU THE FLU

BECAUSE THE VIRUS USED IN

THE VACCINE DIES DURING THE

MANUFACTURING PROCESS.

IT TAKES ABOUT TWO WEEKS FOR

THE VACCINE TO FULLY PROTECT

YOU, SO YOU COULD STILL GET

THE FLU DURING THAT TIME.

THE SHOT MAY NOT STOP EACH

DIFFERENT FLU STRAIN.

THIS YEAR'S VACCINE IS ABOUT

60% EFFECTIVE WITH THE

VARIOUS TYPES CIRCULATING

TODAY.

WHY WON'T THE SHOT STOP ALL

OF THIS ILLNESS?

WELL, THE VACCINE REQUIRES A

LONG INCUBATION PROCESS, SO

DRUG-MAKERS MUST PREDICT

WHICH STRAINS THEY NEED TO

PREPARE FOR MONTHS BEFORE

THE NEXT FLU SEASON.

BUT THAT IS ABOUT TO

CHANGE.

THE F.D.A. JUST APPROVED A

NEW VACCINE THAT IS MUCH

FASTER TO MAKE, AND,

THEREFORE, WILL BE A BETTER

MATCH.

IT IS CALLED FLU BLOCK.

ACCORDING TO THE F.D.A., FLU

BLOCK PROMISES FASTER

STARTUP OF THE VACCINE IN

THE EVENT OF A PANDEMIC.

LIKE TRADITIONAL FLU SHOTS,

HOWEVER, IT WILL ONLY

PROTECT AGAINST THREE

STRAINS OF THE FLU.

BUT EVEN THAT COULD BE

TEMPORARY BECAUSE SCIENTISTS

ARE WORKING ON ANOTHER TYPE

OF VACCINE NOT YET APPROVED,

THAT WOULD OFFER ALMOST

TOTAL FLU PROTECTION.

WHAT INVESTIGATORS HAVE

BEEN DOING OVER THE LAST

SEVERAL YEARS IS TO TRY AND

FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN CREATE

A VACCINE THAT WOULD INDUCE

AN IMMUNE RESPONSE AGAINST

INFLUENZA, AND ONES THAT

DRIFT A LITTLE BIT FROM YEAR

TO YEAR, AND THOSE THAT

DRAMATICALLY CHANGE RARELY,

EVERY FEW TIMES A CENTURY,

AS WE SEE WITH PAN DISTICS.

Reporter: WHILE DOCTORS

COUNT THE VACCINE AS THE

BEST FLU PREVENTION, THERE

ARE OTHER WAYS.

TOPPING THAT LIST, WASHING

YOUR HANDS, BUT YOU HAVE TO

DO IDO IT RIGHT.

GET A GOOD LATTER GOING, AND

KEEP IT GOING 20 SECONDS,

ABOUT AS LONG AS IT TAKES TO

SING THE HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG

TWICE.

RINSE REALLY WELL, AND DRY

WITH A CLEAN TOWEL.

IF THERE IS NO SOAP AND

WATER HANDY, HAND SANITIZERS

ARE A GOOD SUBSTITUTE.

JUST MAKE SURE THEY ARE AT

LEAST 60% ALCOHOL, AND RUB

UNTIL YOUR HANDS ARE DRY.

BUT YOUR HANDS AREN'T THE

ONLY CULPRIT.

THE FLU VIRUS CAN LIVE ON A

HARD SURFACE FOR UP TO TWO

DAYS.

SO REGULARLY DISINFECT ALL

OF THOSE THINGS YOU MIGHT

TOUCH ON A DAILY BASIS, LIKE

DOORKNOBS, REMOTE CONTROLS,

REFRIGERATOR HANDLES.

OUR BODIES ARE DESIGNED TO

FIGHT OFF VIRUSES LIKE THE

FLU NATURALLY, BUT THE CATCH

IS YOU HAVE TO HAVE A STRONG

IMMUNE SYSTEM.

THAT REQUIRES DISCIPLINE,

AND REMEMBERING YOUR DOs

AND DON'Ts.

DO GET AT LEAST EIGHT HOURS

OF SLEEP.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER.

EAT NUTRITIOUS FOODS, AND

TAKE SUPPLEMENTS, INCLUDING

FISH OIL, VITAMIN "C" AND

"D," AND ALSO TRY THE

NATURAL ANTIBIOTIC VIRGIN

COCONUT OIL.

ONE TABLESPOON IN THE

MORNING AND AT NIGHT SHOULD

DO IT.

THE COCONUT OIL TENDS TO

KEEP THE BACTERIA DOWN, SO

IF YOU'RE ASSAULTED WITH THE

VIRUS, YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

CAN CONCENTRATE ON THE

VIRUS.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO

CONCENTRATE ON 27 OTHER

BACTERIA YOU MAY HAVE BEEN

EXPOSED TO THAT DAY.

Reporter: DON'T EAT

FOOD WITH A LOT OF SUGAR AND

TRANS-FATS.

THEY CAN CAUSE IMFLAMMATION,

WHICH WEAKENS YOUR I IMMUNE

SYSTEM.

AND STRESS WILL ALSO DO

THAT, SO KEEP IT LOW WITH

PRAYER AND EXERCISE.

AVOID THE FLU BY GETTING THE

VACCINE, KEEPING YOURSELF

AND YOUR ENVIRONMENT CLEAN

AND YOUR BODY STRONG.

Pat: LAURIE IS WITH US,

AND NEEDLESS TO SAY, SHE IS

PUSHING COCONUT OIL, THE

ELIXIR OF LIFE.

Reporter: I'M GOING TO

INCLUDE COCONUT OIL IN EVERY

STORY THAT I DO FROM NOW

ON.

Pat: I BROKE MY LEG,

COCONUT OIL!

LAURIE, WHAT IS INFLUENZA.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN THAT AND A COLD OR

BRONCHITIS?

Reporter: INFLUENZA IS

A VIRUS, AND IT ATTACKS YOUR

RESPIRATORY SYSTEM.

SO YOU KNOW YOU HAVE THE FLU

IF -- THIS IS A MEDICAL

TERMINOLOGY, BUT YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU'VE BEEN HIT BY A

TRUCK.

Pat: THAT'S A MEDICAL

TERM.

Reporter: IT IS HARD

AND IT HITS FAST.

IT'S RESPIRATORY, AND YOU

HAVE THE COUGHING, THE SORE

THROAT AND THE CONGESTION.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD

SAY THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE

COMMON COLD.

THAT'S TRUE, AND THE

SYMPTOMS ARE THE SAME, BUT

WITH THE FLU, THEY'RE A LOT

MORE SEVERE AND THEY LAST

LONGER.

Pat: THIS STUFF SEEMS

TO GO AWAY AND THEN IT IS

VERY TENACIOUS; IT WANTS TO

COME BACK.

Reporter: THAT'S A VERY

BIG WARNING SIGN.

MOST PEOPLE WHEN THEY GET

THE FLU, THEY CAN STAY HOME

AND TREAT THE SYMPTOMS.

BUT IF YOU'RE A HIGH RISK

PERSON, YOU NEED TO GO TO

THE DOCTOR RIGHT AWAY.

BECAUSE THE HIGH-RISK PEOPLE

ARE THE ONES WHO DIE FROM

THE FLU.

HIGH-RISK PEOPLE ARE ONES

WHO HAVE SOMETHING ELSE

GOING ON.

THEY'RE ELDERLY, OR THEY

HAVE A CHRONIC MEDICAL

CONDITION, LIKE ASTHMA.

SOMETHING LIKE ASTHMA, OR

DIABETES.

PEOPLE WHO ARE PREGNANT --

WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT ARE

HIGH RISK, AND PEOPLE WHO

ARE MORBIDLY OBESE ARE HIGH

RISK.

MORBIDLY OBESE MEANS YOU'RE

AT LEAST 100 POUNDS

OVERWEIGHT.

ALL THESE PEOPLE NEED TO

GO -- BECAUSE 200,000 PEOPLE

ARE HOSPITALIZED FOR THE FLU

EACH YEAR.

38,000 DIE FROM IT.

AS YOU MENTIONED, 37

CHILDREN SO FAR.

LAST YEAR ONLY 35 -- I SAY

ONLY 35 -- LAST YEAR 35

CHILDREN DIED FROM IT, AND

THIS YEAR 37, AND WE STILL

HAVE EIGHT WEEKS TO GO.

Pat: DURING WORLD WAR

I, MILLIONS OF PEOPLE DIED.

IT WASN'T JUST THOUSANDS.

WAS IT THE SAME KIND OF

FLU?

Reporter: NO, IT

WASN'T.

THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERENT

STRAINS.

I THINK THAT WAS A VERSION

OF THE AVIAN FLU.

THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERENT

STRAINS FLOATING AROUND OUT

THERE.

BUT THE MAIN THING TO

REMEMBER IS IF YOU HAVE SOME

SORT OF SOMETHING THAT

LOWERS YOUR IMMUNITY -- OF

THE CHILDREN THAT DIED OF

THE FLU, A LOT OF THEM HAVE

SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON,

LIKE ASTHMA OR DIABETES.

Pat: IT IS THE STANDARD

PRESCRIPTION OF EAT THE

RIGHT KIND OF OF FOOD, LOW

GLYCEMIC FOODS, AND STAY

AWAY FROM TRANS-FATS AND

SUGAR.

Reporter: AND EXERCISE

AND MAKE SURE YOU DRINK A

LOT OF WATER.

AND KEEP THOSE HANDS CLEAN.

DON'T BE STICKING YOUR HANDS

IN YOUR EYES.

I RUB MY EYES A LOT, AND

THAT'S A GREAT WAY TO GET

VIRUSES INSIDE YOUR BODY.

Pat: AND THE CLICKER ON

THE TELEVISION -- THAT CAN

CARRY THESE THINGS FOR A

COUPLE OF DAYS?

TWO DAYS.

VIRUSES CAN LIVE ON A HARD

SURFACE FOR TWO DAYS.

Pat: THE PROBLEM IS,

YOU HAVE LITTLE CHILDREN AND

THEY GET IN CONTACT WITH ALL

THESE DISEASE-RID

DISEASE-RIDDEN PLAYMATES,

AND THEY COME HOME WITH ALL

OF THE BUGS.

Reporter: THAT'S WHY

PARENTS SHOULD BE A LITTLE

MORE CONSIDERATE.

IF YOUR CHILD IS SICK, KEEP

THEM AT HOME.

BECAUSE SOME KIDS CAN DIE

FROM IT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY, HOW DO

YOU DIE FROM THE FLU?

WHAT HAPPENS IS THEY GET THE

FLU, AND THEN IT TURNS INTO

SOMETHING ELSE.

THE FLU IS A VIRUS, BUT IT

CREATES A LOT OF MUCOUS

INSIDE YOUR BODY, AND MUCOUS

IS A PERFECT BREEDING GROUND

FOR BACTERIA, AND A

BACTERIAL INFECTION, LIKE

PNEUMONIA.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO DIED OF

THE FLU, ON THE DEATH

CERTIFICATE, IT WILL SAY

PNEUMONIA.

BUT THEY NEVER WOULD HAVE

GOTTEN IT IF THEY DIDN'T GET

THE FLU.

Pat: AND THE WINTER

SEEMS TO KILL THESE BUGS,

BUT WE'VE HAD A VERY MILD

WINTER FOR A PERIOD OF

TIME.

AND IT WAS BITTER COLD A FEW

DAYS AGO, AND NOW IT IS

WARMER.

THOSE BUGS WILL PROLIFERATE

AND COME BACK UP.

Reporter: THAT'S

RIGHT.

Pat: IF YOU WOULD LIKE

MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO

FIGHT THIS AWFUL MESS, WE

HAVE A FACT SHEET AVAILABLE

ON OUR WEBSITE.

IT'S CALLED "FLU FIGHTERS."

JUST GO TO cbn.com, AND

DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE COPY.

LAURIE, AS USUAL, YOU ARE

WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Reporter: SAME BACK AT

YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU YOU, TOO.

Pat: TERRY, I HOPE YOU

HAVEN'T GOT ANYTHING?

Terry: I'M GOOD TO GO.

COMING UP, DR. MARY NEIL IS

GOING TO TELL US WHAT

HAPPENED WHILE SHE WAS --

GET THIS -- DEAD FOR MORE

THAN 15 MINUTES.

I FEEL MORE ALIVE THAN

I'VE EVER FELT.

I FELT MY SPIRIT BREAK FREE

FROM MY BODY.

AND I ROSE UP AND OUT OF THE

RIVER.

THEY WERE TAKING ME TOWARDS

THIS GREAT DOMED STRUCTURE.

Terry: HEAR WHAT SHE

SAW AND WHO SHE MET WHEN WE

COME BACK.

*

Terry: WE JUST FINISHED

TWO WEEKS OF SPECIAL

NOW.

IT IS A 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH COMMITMENT.

AND IT INCLUDES THE

EXTRAORDINARY STORES OF

PEOPLE WHO DIED AND WENT TO

HEAVEN OR HELL, AND CAME

BACK TO SHARE THEIR STORIES

WITH THE REST OF US.

RIGHT NOW PAT IS GOING TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO ONE OF

THOSE PEOPLE.

Pat: IT HAS BEEN AN

AGE-OLD QUEST, WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN WE DIE?

PEOPLE THINK, WELL, YOU GO

TO SLEEP, YOU DON'T WAKE

UP.

BUT IT IS A QUESTION HUMANS

HAVE BEEN ASKING SINCE THE

BEGINNING OF TIME.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DIE?

WILL I LIVE AGAIN.

DR. MARY IS A SURGEON.

SHE IS A MEDICAL

PROFESSIONAL.

AND SHE WAS ALWAYS SKEPTICAL

OF PEOPLE WHO DESCRIBED LIFE

AFTER DEATH, BUT NOT

ANYMORE.

WATCH THIS.

Reporter: DR. MARY NEIL

IS AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON,

WHO SHARES HER LOVE FOR

MEDICAL PRACTICE AND HER

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE WITH HER

HUSBAND, BILL.

IN 1999, THEY TOOK MARY ON A

SPIRITUAL JOURNEY THAT FEW

HAVE TAKEN AND RETURNED TO

TALK ABOUT.

MY HUSBAND AND I ENJOY

TRAVELLING AND WE SPEAK

SPANISH AND TRAVELLED

INTERNATIONALLY A NUMBER OF

TIMES.

FOR MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY, I

SAID, OKAY, THIS IS THE YEAR

WE'RE GOING TO DO IT.

SO WE WENT TO CHILE FOR A

VACATION, TO KAYAK.

Reporter: AFTER A WEEK

OF KAYAKING, BILL SAT OUT

THE FINAL DAY WITH A SORE

BACK.

MARY AND THE REST OF THE

CREW KAYAKED THROUGH A

TREACHEROUS SECTION OF

RIVER.

IT IS A SECTION VERY WELL

KNOWN FOR ITS WATERFALLS.

THESE ARE DROPS OF 10 TO

15 FEET, WHICH FOR AN

EXPERIENCED KAYAKER IS NOT A

CRAZY THING.

I WENT OVER THE MAIN DROP,

AND I CRESTED OVER THE DROP,

I COULD SEE THE TREMENDOUS

TURBULENCE AND TREMENDOUS

VOLUME.

AS I HIT THE BOTTOM OF THE

DROP, THE FRONT END OF MY

BOAT BECAME PINNED.

I AND MY BOAT WERE

IMMEDIATELY AND COMPLETELY

SUBMERGED.

THE VOLUME AND FORCE OF THE

WATER WAS SUCH THAT I WAS

ABSOLUTELY PRESSED TO THE

FRONT DECK OF THE BOAT.

AND I COULDN'T MOVE MY ARMS,

EVEN BACK FAR ENOUGH TO

REACH MY SKIRT, LET ALONG

PUSH MYSELF OUTMENT.

Reporter OUT.

Reporter: MARY WAS

STUCK.

THE ONLY THING SHE COULD DO

WAS PRAY.

I SINCERELY ASKED THAT

GOD'S WILL BE DONE.

AND I MEANT IT.

I DIDN'T SAY, OH, PLEASE,

COME AND SAY ME.

I REALLY MEANT IT.

I ASKED FOR GOD'S WILL TO BE

DONE.

AND AT THE MOMENT I ASKED

THAT, I WAS OVERCOME BY A

VERY PHYSICAL SENSATION OF

BEING HELD AND COMFORTED AND

REASSURED THAT EVERYTHING

WAS FINE.

THAT MY HUSBAND WOULD BE

FINE.

MY FOUR YOUNG CHILDREN WOULD

BE FINE, REGARDLESS OF

WHETHER I LIVED OR DIED.

AND I BELIEVE THAT CHRIST

WAS HOLDING ME WHEN I WAS

STILL ON THE BOAT, AND WAS

THE ONE REASSURING ME.

Reporter: AFTER SEVERAL

MINUTES OF SEARCHING, THE

GROUP LEADERS REALIZED MARY

WAS TRAPPED.

THEY CAME OUT ON THE

ROCKS, AND THEY KEPT TRYING

TO GET TO THE BOAT.

BUT THE FORCE AND VOWEL OF

VOLUME OF THE WATER WAS SUCH

THEY KEPT GETTING FLUSHED.

AND THEY COULDN'T GET TO

ME.

AND AT ONE POINT THEY

RECOGNIZED IT WAS TURNING

INTO BODY RECOVERY, NOT SO

MUCH OF A RESCUE.

MY BODY WAS BEING THRUST

OVER THE FRONT DECK.

WHAT THAT MEANT IS WHEN IT

GOT TO MY KNEES, THEY WENT

BACK.

AND I COULD FEEL THAT.

I'M AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON,

AND I WAS THINKING, WELL, IT

FEELS LIKE MY TIBIA PROBABLY

BROKE, BUT I WASN'T

SCREAMING.

I DIDN'T HAVE PAIN.

I DIDN'T HAVE FEAR.

I DIDN'T HAVE THAT SENSE OF

AIR HUNGER.

I KNOW I'D BEEN UNDER WATER

TOO LONG TO BE ALIVE, YET I

FEEL MORE ALIVE THAN I'VE

EVER FELT.

AND THIS IS MORE REAL THAN

ANYTHING I'VE EVER

EXPERIENCED.

AS MY BODY BROKE FREE FROM

MY BOAT, I FELT MY SPIRIT

BREAK FREE FROM MY BODY.

AND I ROSE UP AND OUT OF THE

RIVER.

Reporter: MARY LOOKED

DOWN ON THE RIVER AS SHE MET

HER BODY.

THEN SHE WAS MET BY A GROUP

OF HEAVENLY BEINGS.

THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY

OVERJOYED TO SEE ME AND

GREET ME, AND I, THEM.

I KNEW THEY HAD KNOWN ME AND

LOVED ME AS LONG AS I

EXISTED.

AND I KNEW THAT I HAD KNOWN

THEM AND LOVED THEM.

AND I KNEW THAT THEY HAD

BEEN SENT BY GOD.

THEY BEGAN TAKING MY DOWN

THIS EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL

PATH THAT WAS BRILLIANT, AND

THEY WERE TAKING ME TOWARDS

THIS GREAT DOMED STRUCTURE

OF SORTS THAT NOT ONLY WAS

EXPLODING WITH BEAUTY AND

COLOR, BUT IT WAS EXPLODING

WITH THIS ABSOLUTE LOVE OF

GOD THAT WAS BEYOND ANYTHING

I COULD EVER DESCRIBE OR

EVER TRULY EXPLAIN.

AND I COULD HARDLY WAIT.

I WAS ABSOLUTELY OVERWHELMED

BY THIS SENSATION OF BEING

HOME.

OF BEING WHERE I BELONGED.

BUT JUST AS QUICKLY, THERE

WAS THIS SENSE OF

DISAPPOINTMENT THAT

DESCENDED ON EVERYONE.

AND THE SPIRITS WHO HAD

TAKEN ME THERE TOLD ME THAT

IT WASN'T MY TIME.

AND I HAD MORE WORK TO DO ON

EARTH, AND I HAD TO GO BACK

TO MY BODY.

Reporter: AFTER WHAT

SEEMED LIKE HOURS WITH HER

HEAVENLY HOSTS, DR. NEIL

RETURNED TO THE RIVER AND

WATCHED AS HER FRIENDS

RECOVERED HER BODY.

I COULD SEE MY BODY BEING

PULLED TO THE SHORE.

AND I COULD SEE THE GUYS

START C.P.R.

I FELT LIKE HE WAS LOOKING

RIGHT AT ME AND BEGGING ME

TO COME BACK AND TAKE A

BREATH.

AND I WAS REUNITED.

IN THE MIDDLE OF A VERY

REMOTE PART OF SOUTH

AMERICA.

Reporter: DR. NEIL HAD

BEEN GONE FOR OVER 15

MINUTES, PERHAPS AS LONG AS

25.

CERTAINLY LONGER THAN

MEDICAL SCIENCE CAN EXPLAIN

HER SURVIVAL.

SHE WAS FLOWN BACK TO THE

UNITED STATES WHERE SHE

SLOWLY RECOVERED FROM HER

INJURIES.

IN HER BOOK, "TO HEAVEN AND

BACK," SHE TALKS ABOUT HOW

THE REALITY OF GOD'S LOVE

HAS CHANGED HER FOR

ETERNITY.

ALL OF THE PROMISES OF

GOD ARE TRUE.

GOD LOVES EACH AND EVERY ONE

OF US, AND REALLY IS THERE

AND IS WORKING IN EACH AND

EVERY ONE OUR LIVES.

THAT LOVE IS EVERYTHING.

IF WE TRULY COULD ACCEPT

THAT, IT CHANGES

EVERYTHING.

IT CHANGES THE WAY YOU VIEW

EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY.

THE FACT THAT THERE REALLY

IS LIFE AFTER DEATH

PROFOUNDLY CHANGES THE WAY

YOU APPROACH EVERY MOMENT.

Pat: WOW!

WHAT A STORY.

WHAT A TESTIMONY.

THE BIBLE SAYS THE EYE

HASN'T SEEN, NOR EAR HAS

HEARD, NEITHER HAS IT

ENTERED INTO THE HEART WHAT

GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THEM.

HEAVEN IS REAL, FOLKS.

WHEN YOU DIE, YOUR BODY MAY

BE DEAD, BUT YOUR SPIRIT

WILL GO ON FOREVER.

AND DR. MARY NEIL WENT TO

THAT PLACE.

BUT IT WASN'T HER TIME.

SHE WANTED TO GO.

IT WAS HOME.

IT WAS WONDERFUL.

BUT SHE HAD MORE TO DO ON

THIS EARTH.

NOW, I ASK YOU RIGHT NOW,

THERE IS SOME PLACE ELSE,

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU DIE.

YOU DON'T ALL GO TO HEAVEN.

YOU GO, AS SHE DID, BECAUSE

SHE KNEW THE LORD AND SHE

HAD SURRENDERED TO HIM, AND

SHE WAS A CHRISTIAN, AND SHE

BELIEVED IN JESUS.

AND SHE HAD ACCEPTED HIS

DEATH FOR HER.

AND THE ANGELS CAME TO MEET

HER.

A JOYOUS COMPANY OF PEOPLE

WHO LOVED HER AND

SURRENDERED HER WITH LOVE.

DOESN'T THAT SOUND GOOD, TO

BE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO

LOVE YOU.

TO HAVE THE REST OF CHRIST.

TO KNOW THAT FOR ALL

ETERNITY, YOU'RE GOING TO BE

SHELTERED IN THE BOSOM OF

THE LOVING FATHER WHO

EXCEEDS ALL THAT IS.

HE LOVES YOU.

GOD LOVES YOU.

SOME OF YOU RIGHT NOW SAY,

OH, BUT I'D RATHER PARTY ON

EARTH.

I WOULD RATHER BREAK GOD'S

LAWS.

I'D RATHER CURSE AND HAVE

ILLICIT SEX AND DO ALL THAT

KIND OF STUFF.

AND PEOPLE GET OUT AND THEY

PARADE AND THEY MARCH AROUND

AND HAVE CEREMONIES TO

CELEBRATE THEIR DEVI THEATE

DEVIATE PRACTICE.

AND GOD SAYS, WHY WOULD YOU

REJECT ME?

AND SOME OF YOU HAVE HEARD

DR. MARY'S TESTIMONY, AND

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO SPEND

ETERNITY WITH JESUS?

WELL, IF YOU WOULD, I WANT

YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD RIGHT

NOW AND PRAYING.

WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING --

WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING APART

FROM GOD, YOU NEED TO GIVE

THAT UP AND TURN TO THE

LORD.

AND THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU

PROSPERITY.

HE'LL GIVE YOU A FAMILY.

HE'LL GIVE YOU HAPPINESS.

HE'LL GIVE YOU ALL KINDS OF

THINGS, BUT YOU WANT TO DO

IT HIS WAY.

AND IF YOU'LL SURRENDER TO

HIM, ALL THINGS WILL BE

YOURS.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY WITH

ME RIGHT NOW.

PRAY THESE WORDS: JESUS --

THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, I THANK YOU THAT

THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH.

I THANK YOU THAT BEYOND

THEGRAPHY THER THE GRAVE

THERE IS A NEW REALITY, FAR

GREATER THAN ANYTHING I'VE

EVER KNOWN.

AND RIGHT NOW I PRAY FOR THE

ANOINTING OF YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT TO COME INTO MY

LIFE.

I SURRENDER TO YOU, JESUS.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT,

WHETHER I LIVE TODAY OR I

LIVE FOR 100 MORE YEARS, I

SURRENDER TO YOU.

MY LIFE IS YOURS FOR ALL

ETERNITY.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU FOR HEARING MY

VOICE.

KNACK FOTHANK YOU FOR

HEARING MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU FOR FORGIVING MY

SINS.

AND THANK YOU FOR DYING FOR

ME.

THANK YOU.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING

TO HELP YOU.

"A NEW DAY," THIS IS WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

I KNOW YOU WONDER WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

THIS WILL TELL YOU WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

SO I WANT YOU TO CALL AND

SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

THIS IS THE DAY THAT I

SURRENDER TO HIM.

THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN ARE

REJOICING.

THE BIBLE SAYS, THE ANGELS

OF MY FATHER REJOICE OVER

ONE SINNER THAT REPENTS.

GO TO YOUR TELEPHONES, IT'S

A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

WE WANT TO HEAR THE GOOD

NEWS.

1-800-759-0700.

1-800-759-0700.

IT'S A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

Terry: WELL, STILL

LOVED ONE.

IF THAT'S YOU, LEARN HOW TO

GET DIRECT HELP AT HOME AND

SAVE MONEY.

THAT'S COMING UP.

BUT, FIRST, WE'VE GOT YOUR

E-MAILS.

FRANKY SAYS, "I PRAY ALL THE

TIME BUT NEVER SEE ANY

RESULTS.

WHY IS THIS?

AND HOW CAN I HAVE FAITH IN

SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T SHOW

ME PROOF THAT MY PRAYERS ARE

HEARD?"

FRANKIE, WE'RE GOING TO

TACKLE YOUR QUESTION WHEN WE

BRING IT ON.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

*

Terry: WELL, WE LOVE

HEARING FROM YOU, AND MANY

OF YOU SUBMITTED QUESTIONS

YOU'D LIKE TO HAVE ANSWERED

VIA E-MAIL.

SO, PAT, LET'S ANSWER SOME

OF THESE.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM

FRANKIE, WHO SAYS, "I

RECENTLY ASKED GOD FOR

FORGIVENESS OF MY SINS AND

ASKED HIM INTO MY HEART.

GROWING UP, I NEVER HAD

ANYONE SHOW ME HOW TO PRAY

OR WHAT FAITH WAS AS MY

FAMILY DIDN'T GO TO CHURCH,

EXCEPT FOR HOLIDAYS.

I PRAY ALL OF THE TIME NOW,

BUT NEVER SEE ANY RESULTS.

WHY IS THIS?

AND HOW CAN I HAVE FAITH IN

SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T SHOW

ME PROOF THAT MY PRAYERS ARE

HEARD OR PROOF THAT THINGS

ARE CHANGING?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS WE

SEE THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY

AND THEN FACE TO FACE.

WE DON'T SEE ALL OF THE

ANSWERS IN THIS LIFE.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,

THERE WILL BE A PRESENCE OF

JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE.

YOU'VE DONE THE RIGHT

THING.

YOU'VE GIVEN YOUR HEART TO

HIM.

AND NOW YOU'RE IN PRAYER.

PRAYER IS COMMUNION.

PRAYER IS THE FULFILLMENT OF

YOUR DEPOSIT LONGING WITH

THE SPIRIT OF GOD.

AND IT ISN'T, YOU KNOW, LIKE

ALADDIN'S LAMP, YOU RUB AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN A JEANNIE

APPEARS AND GRANTS YOU THREE

WISHES.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

BUT GOD WILL ANSWER YOUR

PRAYER.

AND SOMETIMES HE SAYS NO,

AND YOU HAVE TO BE MATURE

ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN HE IS

SAYING NO AND WHEN HE IS

SAYING YES.

THE BIGGEST THING ABOUT

PRAYER IS THAT IT IS

COMMUNION WITH YOUR FATHER,

AND THE REWARD OF A HOLY

LIFE IS DRAWING NEARER TO GO

GOD.

THAT'S THE REWARD, MORE THAN

ANYTHING ELSE.

Terry: AT THE BEGINNING

OF THAT QUESTION, WHEN

FRANKIE SAYS, "I RECENTLY

ASKED GOD FOR FORGIVENESS OF

MY SINCE."

SINS," AND YOU'VE OFTEN

SAID GOD IS NOT LIKE A SLOT

MACHINE WHERE YOU GET THE

ANSWERS IMMEDIATELY.

Pat: KEEP ON PRAISING

THE LORD, KEEP ON

SURRENDERING TO HIM, AND

YOU'LL ALSO FIND YOU'LL ALSO

HAVE ANSWERS TO PRAYER, BUT

HE'LL LEAD YOU IN YOUR

PRAYER LIFE.

Terry: ED SAYS, "WHAT

DOES IT MEAN TO LOVE GOD

WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART?"

Pat: WELL, THE HEART IS

THE SEAT OF THE EMOTIONS.

IT IS THE HEART -- YOU KNOW,

WHERE YOU GET WISDOM.

BUT THE HEART IS THE CENTER

OF YOUR BEING.

I TRIED TO GET A WORD STUDY

THAT THE HEART AND THE

SPIRIT WERE THE SAME THING,

AND THE HEBREW DOESN'T QUITE

BACK UP MY THEORY, SO I

CAN'T SAY IT FOR SURE.

BUT I THINK IT IS THE INNER

BEING.

AND SO HOW DO YOU LOVE HIM

WER WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART?

WITH YOUR HEART AND YOUR

SOUL AND YOUR SPIRIT.

IT IS THE WAY YOU LIVE AND

IT IS THE WAY YOU ACT.

IF YOU LOVE ME, YOU'LL KEEP

MY COMMANDMENTS, JESUS

SAID.

SO IF YOU DO WHAT HE TELLS

YOU TO DO, THAT'S THE WAY

YOU SHOW LOVE TO HIM.

Terry: BOB SAYS, "IN

JOHN 17: 22: JESUS PRAYED,

FATHER, THE GLORY YOU HAVE

GIVEN TO ME I MIGHT GIVE TO

THEM IN THE HOPE THEY MAY BE

ONE.

MY QUESTION IS, WHO IS THE

GLORY?"

Pat: THE GLORY OF GOD

IS THE PRESENCE OF GOD

HIMSELF.

AND WHEN DID HE GET IT?

HE WAS IN THE PRESENCE OF

THE LORD.

THERE WAS A VOICE THAT SAID,

"THIS IS MY BELOVED SON,

LISTEN TO HIM."

SO ALL DURING HIS LIFE, HE

WAS WALKING IN THE PRESENCE

OF THE LORD.

THE GLORY OF THE LORD --

WHAT WE CALL THE DOXOLOGY,

AND THAT IS A GREEK TERM FOR

GLORY.

IT IS THE IDEA OF HIS

PRESENCE, HIS FULLNESS, HIS

SPLENDOR.

AND WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO

GET IT?

I DON'T KNOW THAT WE'RE EVER

GOING TO GET IT.

WHEN I THINK OF ALL OF THE

SPLENDOR OF THE UNIVERSE,

WHEN I THINK OF THE

DIMENSIONS OF THE UNIVERSE,

AND WHEN I THINK OF

SOMETHING THAT IS MEASURED

IN TERMS OF BILLIONS OF

LIGHT YEARS, AND YOU TALK

ABOUT A GOD THAT MADE ALL OF

THAT, HOW IS YOUR MIND GOING

TO COMPREHEND IT.

HE'LL SHOW YOU A LITTLE OF

IT -- I'LL SHOW YOU A LITTLE

OF MY GLORY, BUT WE CAN'T

HANDLE ALL OF IT.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "PAT, YOU'VE HAD

SO MUCH BLESSING AND SUCCESS

DURING YOUR LIFE AND SEEM SO

HAPPY AND CONTENT.

CAN YOU GIVE ME ANY TIPS TO

HELP ME WITH THE BLESSING

AND SUCCESS THAT YOU'VE

EXPERIENCED?"

Pat: I DON'T SHOW THE

SCARS, BUT I'VE BEEN BEAT UP

OVER AND OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

I'VE HAD HEARTACHES.

I'VE HAD TRAGEDY.

I'VE HAD DISAPPOINTMENTS.

I'VE HAD FAILURES.

THE BIBLE TELLS US TO

REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS.

AND THAT HAS BEEN MY

PHILOSOPHY.

REJOICE IN THE LORD.

IN EVERYTHING, GIVE THANKS,

FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD

CONCERNING YOU.

I PRAISE GOD REGARDLESS.

PAUL SAID, I NOW HOW TO BE A

BASE, AND I KNOW HOW TO

ABOUND.

WHEN YOU HAVE MONEY, PRAISE

GOD FOR IT.

WHEN YOU HAVEN'T GOT MONEY,

PRAISE GOD FOR IT.

AND DON'T COMPLAIN.

THAT'S THE THING.

IT IS COMPLAINING THAT TAKES

AWAY THE JOY.

BUT YOU PRAISE THE LORD, AND

YOU RECEIVE HIS WILL.

IT IS THE GOOD AND THE

PERFECT WILL OF GOD.

I USED TO PRAY, LORD, MAKE

ME PART OF YOUR PROGRAM.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO BE PART

OF MY PROGRAM.

I WANT TO BE PART OF YOUR

PROGRAM.

AND WHEN YOU FLOW INTO GOD'S

PROGRAM, ALL KINDS OF

MIRACLES TAKE PLACE.

MAKE ME A PART OF YOUR

PLAN.

AND HE HAS A PLAN, AND YOU

RECEIVE THAT PLAN, AND YOU

GET JOY.

BUT YOU PRAISE THE LORD.

REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENS,

YOU PRAISE GOD.

REMEMBER THE APOSTLES, THEY

GOT BEAT UP.

AND THE JAILER, AND THEY

WERE IN PRISON, AND INSTEAD

OF COMPLAINING, THEY WERE

SINGING TO THE LORD.

PAUL AND SIMON, THEY WERE

SINGING AND PRAISING GOD.

THE LORD BROKE THE BONDS AND

BROKE OPEN THE DOORS OF THE

PRISON.

SO YOU PRAISE THE LORD

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

THE WAY OUT OF THE

WILDERNESS IS OVERCOMING

PRAISE.

SAY IT AGAIN: THE WAY OUT OF

THE WILDERNESS IS OVERCOMING

PRAISE.

HOW DID I DO IT?

I PRAISED THE LORD,

REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENS.

Terry: BEVERLY IS THE

NEXT QUESTION.

SHE SAYS, "MY HUSBAND AND I

ARE LOOKING FOR A LOCAL

CHURCH.

MY HUSBAND WILL ONLY JOIN A

CHURCH THAT BAPTIZES IN

JESUS' NAME BECAUSE HE SAYS

THAT IS BIBLICALLY CORRECT.

ALMOST ALL OF THE CHURCHES

BAPTIZE IN THE NAME OF THE

FATHER, THE SON, AND THE

HOLY GHOST.

WHICH IS THE CORRECT WAY?"

Pat: YOUR HUSBAND IS

HUNG UP ON LEGALLISM.

LEGALISM.

GOD ISN'T A SLOT MACHINE.

GOD ISN'T SOMEBODY WHO WORKS

ON A FORMULA.

YOUR HUSBAND THINKS THERE IS

A PRECISE FORMULA.

THERE WAS A CHURCH KNOWN AS

THE UNITY CHURCH, AND SO

THEY BAPTIS BAPTIZE YOU IN

JESUS' NAME.

AND SO ONE FATHER SAYS, I

BA BAPTIST TIESIZE YOU IN

THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE

SON, AND THE HOLY GHOST.

HE IS ABOUT RAISING INTO THE

NEWNESS OF LIFE.

ENTER INTO THAT SPIRIT.

BUT YOUR HUSBAND IS HUNG UP

ON LEGALISM.

HE NEEDS TO TALK TO SOMEBODY

TO GET HIM OUT OF THAT.

TERRY?

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR

QUESTIONS, BUT WE DO LOVE

HEARING FROM YOU, AND THANK

YOU.

UP NEXT, A UNIQUE APPROACH

FOR HOME HEALTH CARE FOR

SENIORS, AND ONE THAT CAN

SAVE YOU UP TO $5,000 A

YEAR.

YOU WANT TO STAY TUNED FOR

THE DETAILS.

WE'LL BE BACK.

Terry: WELL, A NURSING

HOME CAN BE A NIGHTMARE,

NURSING HOME CARE.

NO WONDER THAT 90% OF

SENIORS WOULD PREFER TO LIVE

AT HOME.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: THEY'RE

SUPPOSED TO BE THE GOLDEN

YEARS.

BUT FOR SOME ELDERLY

AMERICANS, THE YEARS AFTER

RETIREMENT BRING MORE STRESS

THAN JOY.

WHETHER YOU'RE A SENIOR WHO

WANTS TO LIVE AT HOME

DESPITE MEDICAL CONCERNS OR

ONE OF THE 40 MILLION

AMERICANS WHO IS MANAGING

THE CARE FOR AN AGING LOVED

ONE, YOU CAN LIGHTEN YOUR

BURDEN, FINDING QUALITY

AFFORDABLE HOME HEALTH CARE

DOESN'T HAVE TO BE SO

STRESSFUL.

TOM NOX, FOUNDER OF FAMILY

CARE.

TELLS US HOW FINDING IN-HOME

HEALTH CARE CAN SAVE YOU

MONEY AND YOUR SANITY.

Terry: AT SOME POINT IN

YOUR LIFE, YOU MAY BE

CONFRONTED WITH THIS.

WE WANT TO WELCOME THE

FOUNDER AND C.E.O. OF CARE

FAMILY.

THANK YOU, TERRY.

WE WERE TALKING EARLIER, SO

MANY FAMILIES FACE THIS

POINT, ESPECIALLY THE ADULT

CHILDREN, WHERE THEY WATCH

THEIR PARENTS CHANGE.

IN MY CASE, I HAD A

GRANDMOTHER WHO ENDED UP IN

A FACILITY FOR A PERIOD OF

TIME.

SHE HAD ONE OF THOSE

INCIDENTS THAT HAPPENED

WHERE SHE WAS PRESSING HER

BUZZER FOR SOMEONE TO COME

GET HER.

NOBODY CAME.

AND SHE TRIED TO GET OUT OF

BED AND SHE FELL ON THE

FLOOR.

AND MY FAMILY FOUND HER

HOURS LATER.

IT WAS A REALLY HARD TIME

FOR THEM.

THEY WERE LIKE, DO WE KEEP

HER IN A FACILITY OR BRING

HER HOME.

AND WHEN MY MOTHER BROUGHT

HER HOME AND CARED FOR HER

24/7, SHE DID WHAT PEOPLE

DO, SHE ABSOLUTELY BURNED

OUT.

THAT IS HOW IT HAPPENS FOR A

LOT OF FAMILIES.

Terry: TALK ABOUT HOME

CARE?

WHEN I DEVOTED MY LIFE

ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO GETTING

INTO THE SENIOR CARE

COMPANY, I STARTED AN AGENCY

AND HELPED ABOUT 3,000

FAMILIES.

I HIRED CARE-GIVERS AND

MATCHED THEM WITH 3,000

FAMILIES.

BUT THE NEED IS SO BIG IN

AMERICA, AND THE ADULT

CHILDREN ARE SO LOST, I

WANTED TO FIND A SOLUTION

THAT PUT THE ADULT CHILDREN

IN CONTROL AND CUT THE

COST.

BECAUSE HOME CARE IN AMERICA

IS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE, AND

SO ARE FACILITIES.

SO WE CREATED THIS

NATIONWIDE, AND WE HAVE

50,000 CARE-GIVERS, AND

ALLOWS FAMILIES TO COME ON,

MATCH WITH CARE-GIVERS, SEE

BACKGROUND CHECKS, AND HIRE

THEM DIRECTLY.

Terry: SO YOU'VE KIND

OF DONE THE HOMEWORK?

A LOT OF THE HOMEWORK,

AND PROVIDE WAYS OF DOING IT

SAFE AND EASILY.

THE INSURANCES, THE BONDING,

AND ALL OF THE TAXES ARE

DONE.

SO INSTEAD OF SPENDING $21

TO $25 AN HOUR, THEY'RE

SPENDING $15, AND THE

CARE-GIVERS ACTUALLY MAKE

MORE MONEY.

IT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO STAY

HOME LONGER AND GIVE PEACE

OF MIND TO THE FAMILY.

AND PEOPLE CAN STAY AT HOME

FOR 24-HOUR SUPERVISION FOR

LESS THAN THEY DO WITH A

FACILITY.

Terry: I THINK IT IS

EASIER TO SAY, WHEN YOU'RE

AT A YOUNGER PHASE IN YOUR

LIFE, WHEN IT IS TIME, I'LL

MOVE INTO THIS TYPE OF

LIVING.

BUT WHAT I FOUND WITH MY MOM

AND DAD, THEIR HOME IS LIKE

A SECURITY POINT TO THEM.

AND GIVING THAT UP IS A

PAINFUL, TERRIBLE PROCESS.

AND EVEN CONSIDERATION FOR A

LOT OF PEOPLE AT A TIME WHEN

THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO RELAX

AND REST AND ENJOY THEIR

RETIREMENT YEARS.

THEY WANT THEIR CHAIR.

THEY WANT THEIR LOCAL

PAPER.

THEY WANT THEIR CUP OF

COFFEE.

THEY STILL WANT TO HAVE

FAMILY OVER.

BUT IT IS HARD BECAUSE YOU

CAN'T ALWAYS KEEP PEOPLE AT

HOME.

BUT IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT

PEOPLE, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT

MATCH, AND THE RIGHT KIND OF

SUPERVISION AND SUPPORT, YOU

CAN DO IT, AND YOU CAN

AFFORD IT.

BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE

DAY, I THINK THE STATS ARE

87% OF SENIORS JUST WANT TO

AGE IN PLACE.

THIS IS AN INDEPENDENT

GROUP.

THEY WENT THROUGH DEPRESSION

AND FOUGHT WORLD WAR II, AND

THEY WANT TO STAY IN PLACE.

OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE BEEN

FIGHTING FOR THAT RIGHT

SOLUTION THAT GAVE PEOPLE

PEACE OF MIND.

IF YOU FIND THE MATCH, IT

WORKS OUT SO WELL, AND YOU

CAN BE THE DAUGHTER AGAIN.

THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE WANT TO

DO, BE THE FAMILY MEMBER

AGAIN.

Terry: AND THE

ENCOURAGER.

AND THERE IS THE OPPORTUNITY

TO SAVE MONEY IN THIS

BECAUSE IT IS INCREDIBLY

EXPENSIVE TO TRY TO SWING

THIS ON YOUR OWN.

IT IS.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

Terry: AND WE HAVEN'T

COME TO THE BLIP OF THE

BABY-BOOMERS WHO ARE COMING

INTO THE YEARS --

10,000 PEOPLE EVERY DAY

TURN 65.

IT IS AN AGE WAVE THAT IS

COMING THAT WILL BE

UNSUPPORTABLE.

AND PEOPLE CAN'T RELY ON THE

GOVERNMENT.

IF PEOPLE CAN COME UP WITH

SOLUTIONS THAT ARE REALLY

AFFORDABLE, IT ALLOWS THE

ADULT CHILD TO LET THEIR

PARENTS DO WHAT THEY NEED TO

DO.

Terry: THAT'S WHAT WE

WANT TO SAY TO YOU TODAY, IF

YOU'RE SOMEONE WHO IS FACING

THIS WITH A LOVED ONE IN

YOUR FAMILY, AND YOU WOULD

LIKE MORE INFORMATION ON

CARE FAMILY SERVICES, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

AND, TOM, HATS OFF TO YOU

FOR JUMPING INTO THE POOL

BEFORE THE BIG WAVE COMES,

BECAUSE LOTS AND LOTS OF

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO NEED

THIS KIND OF HELP.

THIS KIND OF ENCOURAGEMENT

AND SOUND ADVICE.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: PAT?

Pat: TOMORROW -- I WAS

ABLE TO READ A BOOK ABOUT A

YOUNG GIRL, 15 YEARS OLD,

FROM A GOOD FAMILY, WHO WAS

PUT INTO SEX SLAVERY.

IT IS SHOCKING.

AND SHE IS GOING TO TELL US

ABOUT IT TOMORROW.

SO WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM 1 CORINTHIANS AND

SO YOU READ IT AND MAY THE

LORD BLESS YOU.
