[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

SUNDAY IS THE BIG DAY.

AND YOU ARE A FOOTBALL

FAN --

Terry: YES.

Pat: GREENBAY WENT DOWN

IN FLAMES, BUT NEVERTHELESS,

I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR YOUR

PROGNOSTICATION.

Terry: I HAVE A HOUSE

FULL OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING

IN BOTH DIRECTIONS.

I'M GOING WITH THE RAVENS

JUST BECAUSE I THINK RAY

LEWIS DESERVES THAT.

Pat: I THINK OUR HEART

GOES OUT TO THE RAVENS, BUT

I HAVE TO FILL THIS THING

OUT.

ONE OF THE COMPANIES ASKED

FOR MY OPINION, AND I GAVE

IT TO THE 49ers BY ONE

TOUCHDOWN, SO WE'LL SEE.

THEY'VE GOT A HUGE LINE AND

THAT QUARTERBACK IS

SOMETHING ELSE.

BUT OUR HEARTS ARE WITH RAY

LEWIS AND THE RAVENS.

Terry: YES.

Pat: I THINK WE'LL

CHEER FOR BOTH SIDES.

LIKE THE PRESIDENT IN THE

ARMY, THEY GIVE YOU BOTH

SIDES.

ANYHOW, I THINK IT WILL BE

ONE OF THE BEST SUPER BOWLS

WE'VE EVER HAD.

THE TWO BROTHERS COACHING

THE TEAMS.

UNBELIEVABLE.

HAD HARBAUGH BOYS.

IT IS AMAZING, ISN'T IT?

Terry: IT WILL BE A

VERY GOOD HUMAN INTEREST

GAME FROM SEVERAL

PERSPECTIVES.

Pat: WE'VE GOT A WHOLE

LOT OF INTERVIEWS WITH SOME

OF THE PLAYERS ON TODAY'S

PROGRAM, SO YOU'LL FIND IT

INTERESTING.

LISTEN, IT WAS WINDY.

I MEAN A POWERFUL WALL OF

WIND SWEPT ACROSS MUCH OF

THE SOUTH AND MIDWEST

OVERNIGHT.

THAT INCLUDES WHERE WE LIVE

HERE, AND TORNADOES AND

STORMS TEARING DOWN TREES

AND POWER LINES THAT

ACCOMPANIED THE WINDS.

Terry: AND THE STORMS

HIT HOUSES AND LEFT AT LEAST

TWO PEOPLE DEAD.

Pat: WELL, WE

APOLOGIZE.

WE'VE GOT SOME PROBLEM WITH

OUR AUDIO.

YOU KNOW, ALL OF THIS

EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT, AND

THEN IT DOESN'T WORK.

YOU DON'T FEEL SO BAD WHEN

YOU SEE THOSE LAUNCHES WITH

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN THE COUNTDOWN IS

DELAYED FIVE SECONDS.

NO LAUNCH.

THE TILE WAS LOOSE OR WE HAD

A BAT FLEW IN.

WHATEVER IT IS, ANYHOW,

WE'VE HAD A BAT FLY IN, AND

WITH OUR AUDIO AND VIDEO

MACHINES.

WE WANT TO SEE THIS, SO,

GUYS, PLEASE GET THE TEXT

GOING.

CONGRESS HAS STARTED ON ITS

HEARINGS ON GUN CONTROL, AND

A BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS.

OUR LEE WEBB HAS MORE ON

THIS FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

Lee: PAT, ASSAULT

WEAPONS HAVE BEEN THE FOCUS

OF THE LATEST DEBATE ON GUN

CONTROL.

THE MILITARY-STYLE WEAPONS

WERE BANNED FOR A TIME

DURING THE '90s.

AND NOW THERE IS TALK OF

OUTLAWING THEM AGAIN IN THE

WAKE OF THE MIDTOWN

MASSACRE.

I DISCOVERED THERE IS A HUGE

MISCONCEPTION ABOUT ASSAULT

WEAPONS.

YOU PULL THE TRIGGER, AND

IT KEEPS SHOOTING MULTIPLE

ROUNDS UNTIL THE MAGAZINE IS

EMPTY OR YOU LET GO.

NICE NOT

NOT JUST BANG, BANG.

BUT ROUNDS.

Lee: YOU'RE ASSUMING IT

IS FIRING LIKE A MACHINE

GUN?

YEAH.

Lee: THEY'RE NOT

ALONE.

SEVERAL PEOPLE THINK THERE

IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE

GUNS YOU SEE ON TV AND THE

VIDEO GAMES, AND THE WEAPON

THE GUNMAN USED IN THE HOOD

SHOOTING.

CHIEF, THIS IS WHAT IS

POPULARLY REFERRED TO AS AN

ASSAULT WEAPON?

YES, SIR.

Lee: IT LOOKS NO

DIFFERENT THAN A WEAPON THAT

A SOLDIER OR MARINE WOULD

HAVE IN AFGHANISTAN?

YES.

THE DIFFERENCE IS THIS

SHOOTS ONE ROUND FOR EVERY

TRIGGER PULL.

AS FAST AS YOU CAN PULL THE

TRIGGER, AS FAST AS YOU'RE

GOING TO SHOOT.

Lee: THE MILITARY-STYLE

VERSION HAS THE CAPABILITY

OF SHOOTING MORE THAN ONE

ROUND?

THAT'S CORRECT.

YOU HAVE A THREE-ROUND VERSE

OR AN AUTOMATIC.

Lee: AN EXISTING

FEDERAL LAW MAKES IT

EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO OWN

THAT TYPE OF AUTOMATIC

WEAPON.

ONLY THIS VERSION IS READILY

AVAILABLE ON THE CIVILIAN

MARKET.

IT FIRES ONLY ONE ROUND EACH

TIME THE TRIGGER IS PULLED.

NO DIFFERENT FROM A SEMI

AUTOMATIC PISTOL.

OR EVEN THIS 22 CALIBER

TARGET RIFLE.

TO BE SURE, THE ASSAULT

RIFLE HAS MORE POWER AND A

LONGER RANGE THAN A PISTOL.

YOU CAN CAN SEE THE

DIFFERENCE FOR THE AR-15,

AND THE ROUND FOR A

.9-MILLIMETER PISTOL.

BUT THE VIRGINIA TECH

MASSACRE WAS THE DEADLIEST

SHOOTING SPREE BY A SINGLE

GUNMAN, AND HE DIDN'T USE AN

ASSAULT WEAPON.

ALL HE HAD WERE TWO SEMI

AUTOMATIC PISTOL.

DO YOU THINK PUTTING A BAN

ON THESE ASSAULT WEAPONS

WILL PREVENT MASSACRES?

I HONESTLY DON'T BELIEVE

IT IS GOING TO MAKE ANY

DIFFERENCE.

LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS WHO BUY

THESE WEAPONS RESPECT THESE

WEAPONS.

BUT ANYONE WHO HAS A DESIRE

TO HURT PEOPLE IS GOING TO

USE WHATEVER THEY CAN TO DO

SO.

SO BANNING THESE IS NOT

GOING TO MAKE ANY

SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE.

Lee: PAT, YESTERDAY ON

THE HEARING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, THE NEW REPUBLICAN

SENATOR FROM TEXAS, TED

CRUZ, SAYS IF THESE WEAPONS

ARE BANNED, ALL THAT IS

GOING TO BE BANNED ARE

SCARY-LOOKING WEAPONS.

Pat: I THINK YOU'RE

RIGHT, LEE.

THE WHOLE THING IS, WE'VE

GOT TO DO SOMETHING.

THAT'S WHAT IS SO TERRIBLE

ABOUT POLITICIANS.

YOU'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING.

YOU'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING.

AND THEY DO SOMETHING, AND

THE SOMETHING IS USUALLY

WRONGMEN WRONG.

AND THIS CASE, IT IS WRONG,

TOO.

I WAS LISTENING TO ONE OF

THE RADIO TALK SHOWS, AND I

WAS ASTOUNDED AS HE WENT

OVER THE LIST OF THE VIOLENT

SHOOTINGS THAT HAVE TAKEN

PLACE OVER THE 10, 15

YEARS.

ONE AFTER THE OTHER, THE

SHOOTER WAS ON SOME KIND OF

PSYCHOTROPIC DRUG, WHETHER

IT WAS PROZAC OR VALIUM,

MEDICALLY PRESCRIBED BY

DOCTORS IN EVERY SINGLE

CASE.

THESE PEOPLE WERE ON TO

THESE DRUGS.

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH

THE AVAILABILITY OF

WEAPONS.

IT HAS TO DO WITH WHAT YOU

PUT INTO YOUR SYSTEM, WHICH

CHANGES YOUR MIND.

Terry: EVEN THIS EVENT

SCENARIO WE HAVE BEEN

WATCHING ON THE NEWS SINCE

YESTERDAY, WITH THIS LITTLE

BOY THAT WAS TAKEN.

THIS MAN WHO HAS KIDNAPPED

THIS LITTLE BOY HAS HAD

ERRATIC BEHAVIOR FOR YEARS,

AND MARCHING AROUND IN HIS

YARD, BUILDING A BUNKER,

CARRYING GUNS, THREATENING

PEOPLE.

A LOT OF MENTAL ILLNESS IS

INVOLVED --

Pat: OF COURSE, IT IS.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

IT IS NOT THE GUNS, BUT THE

PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE GUNS.

THE GUY THAT WAS HEAD OF

SECURITY, HE WAS TRAINED IN

WEAPONS, AND HE DID TRAINING

WITH THE SEALS, AND WE'VE

HAD A NUMBER OF SEALS, FROM

SEAL TEAM 6 HERE, AND THESE

GUYS CAN SHOOT LIKE YOU

NEVER SAW.

BUT THEY'RE RESPONSIBLE.

AND THEY WOULDN'T GO ON A

SHOOTING RAMPAGE BECAUSE

THEY'RE TRAINED.

Terry: THIS LAST

INCIDENT WAS SUCH A TRAGEDY,

AND SMALL CHILDREN WERE

INVOLVED, AND YOU FEEL THE

PAIN OF THEIR PARENTS, AND

EVERYONE FEL FEELS

COMPELLED, AS YOU SAID, TO

DO SOMETHING.

BUT WITHOUT SOME THOUGHT AND

SOME RESEARCH AND SOME

REALITY APPLIED TO IT, IT

WILL BE MEANINGLESS.

Pat: THE TRUTH OF THE

MATTER, JUST POLITICALLY

SPEAKING, IF THIS THING GOES

ALONG FOR ANOTHER SEVERAL

WEEKS WITH NOTHING BEING

DONE, NOTHING IS GOING TO BE

DONE BECAUSE THERE IS TOO

MUCH OPPOSITION TO THE BANS

ON GUN OWNERSHIP THAT

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

SO ONES THE FEVER IS OVER,

WE'RE GOING TO SWITCH TO

LET'S FIX THE BUDGET.

LEE?

Lee: INCOMING SECRETARY

OF STATE JOHN KERRY IS

CRITICIZING IRAN FOR ITS

IMPRISONMENT OF AMERICAN

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI.

KERRY ISSUED A WRITTEN

RESPONSE FROM A QUESTION

FROM SENATOR MARCO RUBIO.

HE REPEATED THE STATE

DEPARTMENT'S OFFICIAL

STATEMENT AND CALLED FOR

SAEED'S RELEASE.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE APPLAUDED

KERRY'S STATEMENT.

HE SAYS, "KERRY HAS THE

OPPORTUNITY TO LEAD A

WORLDWIDE EFFORT NEEDED TO

FREE PASTOR SAEED."

NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD

LOOK TO THE U.S. HAD IT

COMES TO STANDING UP AND

PROTECTING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

AND HUMAN RIGHTS.

CHUCK HAGEL FACES TOUGH

QUESTIONS IN HIS

CONFIRMATION TO BECOME

DEFENSE SECRETARY.

MANY CONSERVATIVES BELIEVE

HAGEL HAS NOT BEEN TOUGH

ENOUGH ON IRAN, AND THEY

QUESTION HIS SUPPORT FOR

ISRAEL.

OTHERS ARE CONCERNED, PAT,

THAT HE WOULD CUT DEFENSE

SPENDING TOO MUCH.

Pat: I THINK THIS

FELLOW -- YOU KNOW, THE

BURDEN OF EMPIRE IS VERY

HARD.

AND BEING THE LEADER IN THE

FREE WORLD IS VERY HARD.

BUT YOU SAY, IF IT'S NOT

AMERICA, WHO IS IT?

WHO WILL STAND UP FOR THE

RIGHTS OF THE OPPRESSED?

WHO WILL STAND AGAINST PETTY

DICTATORS WHO COME ON THE

SCENE?

WHO WILL BE THERE?

WHAT IS THE FINAL COURT OF

APPEAL?

AND IT DOESN'T EXIST.

THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL

ASSEMBLY IS A JOKE.

IT'S A JOKE.

IT IS A SOUNDING BOARD FOR

RADICAL ISLAM.

WE DON'T HAVE ANYBODY THAT

CAN BE THE ULTIMATE

ARBITER.

THE UNITED NATION UNITED

STATES HAS HAD THAT ROLE

OVER THE YEARS.

WE ALSO HAVE THE PRIVILEGE

OF PRINTING CURRENCY THAT IS

ACCEPTED BY ALL OF THE

NATIONS AS THE FOUNDATIONAL

CURRENCY.

AND WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF

DESTROYING OUR CURRENCY, AND

WE ARE PULLING DOWN OUR NAVY

TO A POINT BELOW WHAT IT

WAS, I BELIEVE, IN 1916.

AND WE CANNOT HAVE TWO

OCEANS AS PART OF OUR SPHERE

OF INFLUENCE WITH NO MORE

SHIPS.

AS SOMEBODY SAID, YOU CAN

HAVE THE MOST MODERN SHIPS

IN THE WORLD, BUT THEY STILL

CAN'T GO IN TWO DIFFERENT

OCEANS AT THE SAME TIME.

THEY CAN'T DO IT.

AND SO HAGEL IS THE WRONG

CHOICE.

I JUST HOPE THAT THE SENATE

WILL STAND UP.

THE REPUBLICANS IN THE

SENATE WILL FILIBUSTER HIM,

WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO

GET HIS NOMINATION WITHDRAWN

BECAUSE HE IS GOING TO BE

DANGEROUS TO THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

LEE?

Lee: CALLS IN EGYPT AND

OTHER COUNTRIES FOR EGYPTIAN

PRESIDENT MOHAMMED MORSI TO

BRING SOME OF HIS POLITICAL

OPPOSITION ON BOARD AND FORM

A UNITY GOVERNMENT.

HE CUT SHORT A TRIP TO

GERMANY AND HEADED BACK TO

EGYPT.

PROTESTORS THERE HAVE BEEN

TAKING TO THE STREETS

BLASTING MORSI.

THEY SAY HE HAS HELPED THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, BUT NOT

THE COUNTRY.

THE PROTESTS HAVE LED TO

MORE THAN 50 DEATHS, AND

FEARS THAT THE COUNTRY COULD

BE TORN APART AGAIN.

ISRAELI WAR PLANES TOOK OUT

MAJOR TARGETS IN A STRIKE

INSIDE SYRIA.

THEY TOOK OUT WEAPONS THAT

WERE GOING TO BE DELIVERED

TO THE ISLAMIC GROUP,

HEZBOLLAH.

THEY ARE CONCERNED THE WAR

COULD SPREAD TO OTHER PARTS

OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

HERE IS CHRIS MITCHELL FROM

JERUSALEM.

Reporter: SYRIAN TV

CLAIMS ISRAEL ATTACKED A

MILITARY RESEARCH CENTER

NEAR DAMASCUS.

WESTERN DIPLOMATIC SOURCES

SAYS ISRAELI WAR PLANES HIT

A CONVOY HEADED FOR

LEBANON.

THE SOURCES SAID THE CONVOY

CONTAINED WEAPONS THAT COULD

CHANGE THE MILITARY BALANCE

OF POWER IN THE REGION.

I THINK THAT ISRAEL HAS

WARNED THE SYRIANS ABOUT

THIS TYPE OF MILITARY

TRANSFER.

AND REACTED UPON IT.

IT IS KIND OF A MESSAGE

SENT BY ISRAEL TO BOTH SYRIA

AND THE HEZBOLLAH, BY WHICH

TO SAY, WE DO HAVE

CAPABILITIES WHEN IT COMES

TO INTELLIGENCE GATHERING.

Reporter: SOME ANALYSTS

ESTIMATE ASSAD ONLY CONTROLS

ABOUT 30% OF SYRIA.

ONE OF THE MAIN CONCERNS OF

THE U.S. AND ISRAEL IS

ASAD'S HUGE STOCKPILE OF

CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

WE HAVE AN IDEA THAT

ASAD'S GRIP OVER CHEMICAL

WEAPONERY IS WEAKENING IT IT

COULD BE SHIFTED TO

HEZBOLLAH.

IT IS A RED LINE.

THAT ORGANIZATION HAS A

DIFFERENT STRATEGIC

CALCULUS, AND THEY MAY BE

TEMPTED TO USE THIS TYPE OF

WEAPON.

Reporter: THE ISRAELI

ARMY WOULD NOT COMMENT ON

THE ATTACKS.

BUT EARLY THIS WEEK DEPLOYED

TWO IRON DOME ANTIMISSILE

BATTERIES IN NORTHERN

ISRAEL.

IT IS A SIGN THEY MAY BE

PREPARING FOR RETALIATION BY

SYRIA OR HEZBOLLAH.

FOR NOW, THE BORDER REMAINS

QUIET BUT TENSE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Lee: AND AS WE

MENTIONED AT THE TOP OF OUR

PROGRAM TODAY, THERE WERE

POWERFUL STORMS THAT RIPPED

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

EF "GREY'EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS

THE LATEST ON THAT.

Reporter: HEAVY

FLOODING, DANGEROUS WINDS,

AND MONSTER TORNADOES WALLOP

THE SOUTH AND THE MIDWEST

AND DID NOT LET UP

THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT.

IT PICKED ME UP AND FLUNG

ME THREE TIMES.

TRYING TO GET THAT DOOR

CLOSED.

I HAD TO DIG MY WAY OUT.

I THOUGHT IT KILLED MY

SON IN THE BEDROOM, AND I

THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO KILL

ME, TOO.

Reporter: A TORNADO

JUST NORTH OF ATLANTA

DESTROYED HOMES, OFFICE

BUILDINGS, AND EVEN PARTS OF

A FACTORY.

WINDS WERE ESTIMATED AT MORE

THAN 125 MILES PER HOUR.

STRONG ENOUGH TO PICK UP

18WHEELER 18-WHEELERS AND

TOSS THEM AROUND LIKE TOYS.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT

FLIPPED MY TRUCK.

Reporter: SIMILAR

STORIES IN KENTUCKY,

TENNESSEE.

I THANK THE GOOD LORD UP

ABOVE FOR SAVING US.

IT IS ALL OUT INTO THE

FIELDS.

SOME OF THE PEOPLE'S

BELONGINGSING IS ALSO OUT

THERE, TOO.

Reporter: IN MICHIGAN,

MASSIVE FLOODING CAUSED A

THE CREEK.

THE CAR IS IN THE RIVER.

WE'RE ON TOP OF IT IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE RIVER RIGHT

NOW.

THE CAR IS COMPLETELY UNDER

WATER.

PLEASE HELP.

Reporter: IN OTHER

AREAS, IT WAS THE WIND, NOT

THE FLOODING, THAT MADE

DRIVING DIFFICULT.

THE WINDS WERE SO FIERCE

IT WAS THROWING MY CAR

SIDEWAYS.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF I WAS GOING

TO MAKE IT THROUGH IT OR

NOT.

Reporter: THAT STORM

SYSTEM IS NOW MAKING ITS WAY

UP THE EAST COAST, CAUSING

MORE POWER OUTAGES AND

FLOODING, FROM THE CAROLINAS

TO NEW ENGLAND.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Lee: THAT SYSTEM, PAT,

YOU MENTIONED IT CAME

THROUGH OUR AREA, THE TIDE

TIDEWATER SECTION OF

VIRGINIA AT 2:00 AND IT WOKE

YOU UP.

I HAVEN'T TALKED TO ANYBODY

HERE AT WORK THAT WASN'T

AWAKE FROM THAT STORM.

Pat: IT WAS FRIGHTFUL.

THINGS WERE THROWN AROUND.

YOU LOOK ON THE TERRACE, AND

FURNITURE IS OVERTURNED.

WE DIDN'T HAVE A LOT OF

DAMAGE.

BUT, TODAY IT IS SUNNY,

BEAUTIFUL, AND PEACEFUL.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS AT THE

STORMS.

FOR THAT WE'RE VERY

GRATEFUL.

Terry: THEY THAW TALK

ABOUT THE WIND HOWLING, IT

HO HOWLED.

COMING UP, WE'RE GOING TO

TAKE YOU TO NEW YORK CITY'S

BOWERY.

AND THEN WE'RE OFF TO THE

SUPER BOWL, WHERE SEAN BROWN

BRINGS US THE SCOOP OF SUPER

SUPER BOWL XLVII.

Pat: WELL, WHEN

HURRICANE SANDY HIT NEW YORK

CITY, THOUSANDS WERE FORCED

FROM THEIR HOMES.

AND MANY ARE STILL

DISPLACED, EVEN TODAY.

BUT SHELTERS IN THE CITY

HAVE BEEN PROVIDING HELP FOR

THE HOMELESS LONG BEFORE

THIS CRISIS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL REPORTS ON

WHAT ONE NEW YORK MISSION IS

DOING TO RESTORE BROKEN

LINES.

Reporter: THIS NEW YORK

SHELTER FIRST OPENED ITS

DOORS TO THE CITY'S HOMELESS

IN 1879.

THE BOWERY MISSION HERE

IN LOWER MANHATTAN HAS BEEN

EFFECTIVELY REBUILDING THE

LIVES OF HOMELESS PEOPLE FOR

MORE THAN 130 YEARS.

HERE THEY TREAT MORE THAN

JUST THE SYMPTOMS OF

HOMELESSNESS.

THEY TREAT THE ROOT CAUSES

OF THE PROBLEM.

THROUGH THE YEARS, THE

MISSION HAS PROVIDED FOOD

AND SHELTER TO THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

IN THE BEGINNING, ONLY

SHELTERING MEN.

TODAY, IN THE CITY OF

8.4 MILLION, ITS KITCHEN

SERVES SOME 800 MEALS A

DAY.

WE CREATE NUTRITIOUS, HOT

MEALS FROM SCRATCH.

FROM TOP FOOD THAT WE GET

FROM ALL OVER THE CITY.

WHILE SOUP IS A PART OF OUR

MENU, LOBSTER IS ALSO A

PART, TOO.

YOU CAN COME HERE AND GET A

NUTRITIOUS MEAL ANY TIME.

Reporter: LAST YEAR THE

MISSION PROVIDED MORE THAN

30,000 BAGS OF GROCERIES,

AND NEARLY 80,000 NIGHTS OF

SHELTER.

AND ITS GOODWILL EXTENDS

BEYOND FOOD AND HOUSING.

IT ALSO OFFERS A 6-MONTH

LIVE IN DRUG AND ALCOHOL

RECOVERY PROGRAM.

PARTICIPANTS ARE ENROLLED IN

HANDS-ON TRAINING, WHERE

THEY RECEIVE TRAINING.

ONCE ONLY MEN WERE ALLOWED

AT THE SHELTER.

TODAY WOMEN ARE WELCOME,

TOO.

BUT SOME THINGS HAVE

REMAINED THE SAME.

* THAT SAVED A RETCH LIKE

ME *

Reporter: HYMN SINGING,

PRAYERS IN ITS CHAPEL, STILL

PROVIDE NOURISHMENT TO THE

CITY'S HOMELESS.

JIM ONCE OWNED A CLEANING

SERVICE, BUT THAT ALL

CHANGED WHEN HE STARTED

USING DRUGS AND ALCOHOL.

HE SOON FOUND HIMSELF

SLEEPING UNDER BRIDGES AND

IN SUBWAY STATIONS.

HE RECALLED THE FIRST TIME

HE STEP THROUGH THE CHAP PEL

DOORS SOME 30 YEARS AGO.

I SAT ALL THE WAY IN THE

BACK OF THE CHAPEL.

AND I WAS LOOKING AROUND AND

REMEMBERING MY CHILDHOOD,

AND SEEING ALL OF THOSE

SCRIPTURES UP ON THE WALL.

THEY SUNG SONGS THAT I

KNEW.

I SAID, WOW, WHAT KIND OF

PLACE IS THIS?

Reporter: THIS PLACE,

HE SAYS, IS WHERE HE FOUND

REDEMPTION.

NOW AS DIRECTOR OF OUTREACH

HERE, HE SHARES THAT SAME

HOPE WITH OTHERS.

I WANT TO BE THE FATHER

TO SOME THAT NEVER HAD, THE

FRIEND TO SOME THAT NEVER

HAD.

A TRUE FRIEND, AND SAY TO

THEM, IF I CAN CAN DO IT, SO

CAN YOU.

Reporter: DONATIONS

FROM PRIVATE CITIZENS HELP

THE MISSION TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

MEN LIKE JAMES.

AS A PRIVATELY-FUNDED GROUP,

IT RECEIVES NO GOVERNMENT

MONEY.

SOMETHING THAT ALLOWS IT TO

IMPLEMENT SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE

IN ITS PROGRAM.

WHEN YOU REALLY CHANGE A

MAN OR WOMAN'S HEART, IT

TENDS TO LAST.

ESPECIALLY IF YOU SUPPORT

THEM AFTER THEY GRADUATE.

FOUR OUT OF FIVE OF OUR

GRADUATES ARE STILL CLEAN

AND SOBER A YEAR LATER.

THAT IS NOT TRUE OF SECULAR

PROGRAMS.

THAT'S A WONDERFUL RESULT.

Reporter: RESULTS HE

SAYS COST A LOT LESS TO

PRODUCE THAN AT

GOVERNMENT-FUNDED SHELTERS.

IT DOES COST A GOOD DEAL

TO DO THIS.

WE SAY FOR A MAN TO GO

THROUGH OUR PROGRAM AND

GRADUATE CLEAN AND SOBER AND

CONNECTED TO CHRIST AND

EVERYTHING, IT TAKES ABOUT

$12,500.

BUT YOU CONTRAST THAT WITH,

FOR INSTANCE, IT TAKES

$20,000 A YEAR JUST TO

WAREHOUSE A MAN IN ONE OF

THE CITY'S SHELTERS.

AND EVEN MORE IF HE HAS

COMMITTED A CRIME IN JAIL.

Reporter: CRAIG MAZE

AGREES.

HE RUNS THE PRIVATELY-FUNDED

NEW YORK RESCUE MISSION.

I'M GLAD THE CITY IS

COMMITTED TO DOING WHAT THEY

CAN.

AND THEY'RE GIVING THEM FOOD

AND SHELTER.

BUT IF YOU DON'T ADDRESS THE

MORE FUNDAMENTAL ISSUES OF

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A HUMAN

BEING, I THINK YOU'RE GOING

TO CONTINUE TO HAVE SHELTERS

THAT ARE FULL OF PEOPLE THAT

COME BACK, DAY AFTER DAY,

WEEK AFTER WEEK, WITH THE

SAME THING.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

PROBLEM OF HOMELESSNESS IS

BEYOND THE SCOPE OF STATE

AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS.

I THINK IT IS IN THE

HANDS OF PRIVATE

ORGANIZATIONS, THAT THIS IS

WHAT THEY DO.

Reporter: THEY

CALCULATE THE NUMBER OF

HOMELESS IN NEW YORK AT

AROUND 47,000.

BUT WITH THE RISING COST OF

LIVING, MAZE BELIEVES THAT

NUMBER IS MUCH HIGHER AND ON

THE RISE.

SOME WHO ARE IN THIS WORK

THINK THAT NUMBER IS, LIKE,

DOUBLE.

IT COULD BE 100,000.

BUT THE NEED IS GETTING

GREATER.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

PLACES LIKE THE BOWERY

MISSION ARE SURE TO BE

AROUND, OFFERING MORE THAN A

HELPING HAND.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS,

NEW YORK.

Pat: MY WIFE AND I WERE

PRIVILEGED TO GO TO THE

BOWERY MISSION AND HELP IN

THE FOOD DISTRIBUTION TIME.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE WHAT

THE BOWERY MISSION DOES.

IT IS A GREAT INSTITUTION.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THE

AREAS -- THE HANDS OF JESUS

EXTENDED.

YOU KNOW?

THE LORD HAS GOT SO MANY

WAYS OF REACHING OUT TO

PEOPLE, BUT THE BIG THING IS

HE LOVES PEOPLE.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

SUPER BOWL OPPONENTS TALK

ABOUT THE ONE WHO MOTIVATES

THEM TO BE THEIR BEST.

HE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE I

LEAN ON.

MY FAITH KEPT MY FEET ON THE

GROUND.

Terry: STAY TUNED FOR

THE PRE-GAME COVERAGE YOU

WON'T SEE ANYWHERE ELSE.

AND LATER ON, LEARN HOW TO

BREATHE YOUR WAY TO A

THINNER YOU.

*

Pat: WELL, YOU'VE BEEN

HEARING THE HYPE ABOUT THE

SUPER BOWL, AND IT IS

GETTING MORE INTENSE AS THE

DAY DRAWS NYE.

AND JOHN AND JIM HARBAUGH

HAVE ALREADY MADE SUPER BOWL

XLVII HISTORY AS THE FIRST

BROTHERS TO COACH OPPOSING

TEAM.

SUNDAY NIGHT, THE SAN

FRANCISCO 49ers AND THE

BALTIMORE RAVENS WILL

FACEOFF ON THE GRID IRON FOR

THE CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLE.

AND ON MEDIA DAY, SPORTS

REPORTER SEAN BROWN SPOKE

WITH PLAYERS FROM BOTH TEAMS

ABOUT WHAT ROLE THEIR FAITH

PLAYS IN THEIR PERFORMANCE.

WATCH THIS.

*

Reporter: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO MERCEDES BENZ

SUPER DOME HERE IN NEW

ORLEANS FOR THE COVERAGE OF

SUPER BOWL XLVII, WHERE THE

BALTIMORE RAVENS AND THE SAN

FRANCISCO 49ers WILL

BATTLE IT OUT.

NOW THEY'RE HERE HUNGRY FOR

A SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP.

WING FOR THE 49ers WOULD

MEAN THEIR SIXTH SUPER BOWL

CHAMPIONSHIP, AND FOR THE

RAVENS, THEIR SECOND.

PLAYERS FROM BOTH TEAMS

UNDERSTAND, YES, THEY MAY BE

HUNGRY, BUT THERE IS A VOID

THAT CAN'T BE FILLED JUST BY

SIMPLY WINNING A SUPER

BOWL.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST STORIES

OF THE SEASON IS HOW COLIN

KAEPERNICK WON THE STARTING

JOB AFTER ALEX SMITH FELL TO

INJURY.

HE LITERALLY WEARS HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH ON HIS

ARMS.

ON HIS RIGHT BICEP, HE HAS

THE WORD "FAITH."

HE SAYS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS

THE TRUE SOURCE OF HIS

POWER.

HE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE ON

LEAN ON.

MY FAITH IS ALWAYS SOMETHING

THAT HAS KEPT MY FEET

PLANTED ON THE GROUND.

Reporter: VERNON DAVIS

AND PATRICK WILLIS ARE AMONG

THE TOP PLAYERS AT THEIR

POSITIONS, AND THEY SAY THEY

GIVE GOD ALL OF THE CREDIT

FOR THEIR SUCCESS, AND SAY

WHILE WINNING THE SUPER BOWL

WOULD BE GREAT, WHATEVER

HAPPENS OUT ON THE FIELD,

HONORING GOD IS MOST

IMPORTANCE.

I GIVE GOD ALL OF THE

GLORY.

EVERYTHING WE DREAMED OF AND

PRAYED ABOUT, I MEAN IT'S

HAPPENING NOW.

I'M VERY THANKFUL, AND I

CONSIDER THIS AS A BLESSING

TO BE ABLE TO BE HERE.

BECAUSE IT IS NOT EVERY YEAR

THAT THE 49ers WAKE UP AND

THEY'RE IN THE SUPER BOWL.

IT IS TRULY GOOD.

I SAY ABOUT 10 PRAYERS A

GAME.

I WILL ALWAYS END IT WITH,

AND I ALWAYS SAY, LORD, LET

YOUR WILL BE DONE TODAY.

AND WOOFERS WHAT HAPPENS,

WHEN THE GAME IS OVER, I

KNOW IN MY HEART I GIVE YOU

MY ALL.

DON'T GET ME WRONG, IF WE

LOSE, I STILL DON'T SLEEP

LIKE I WANT TO, BUT I DON'T

LET IT GET ME THE WAY I USED

TO.

BECAUSE I PRAYED AND HIS

WILL WILL BE DONE.

Reporter: DAVID IS ONE

OF THE LONGEST PLAYERS ON

THE TEAM.

THIS SEASON HAS BEEN A

STRUGGLE DUE TO INJURIES.

BUT HE REMEMBERS THAT

REGARDLESS OF THE

SITUATIONS, GOD ALWAYS HAS A

PLAN.

I BELIEVE WE'RE ALL HERE

FOR A PURPOSE, AND TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHAT THAT PURPOSE

IS.

AS LONG AS YOU LOVE GOD, YOU

KNOW HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU,

AND YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP

WORKING IN THE SITUATION

YOU'RE IN.

THE BIGGEST THING I TRY

TO DO IS GIVE EVERYTHING TO

GOD.

MY STRESSES, EVERYTHING.

GO OUT AND LIVE FOR HIM, AND

IT WILL WORK OUT.

THIS IS FUN, THIS IS A GAME,

BUT IN THE END, I'M NOT

GOING TO HAVE THIS WHEN I

DIE.

AND THE BIGGEST THING IS

BEING ABLE TO, YOU KNOW, GO

BE WITH HIM ONE DAY AND HANG

OUT WITH HIM.

THERE COULD BE A SUPER BOWL

UP THERE.

YOU NEVER KNOW.

Reporter: FANS

RECOGNIZE THE BALTIMORE

RAVENS AS ONE OF THE MOST

FEARED TEAMS IN THE AFC.

BUT WHAT IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED

IS MANY OF THE PLAYERS SHARE

A COMMON BROTHERHOOD THAT IS

BIGGER THAN THE GAME.

JUST ASK JOHN HARBAUGH.

HE IS GOING TO PUT IN

STRONG, FAITHFUL MEN.

RIGHT HERE IS OUR PASTOR.

I THINK OUR GUYS DRAW

STRENGTH FROM THAT.

THAT'S MY LORD AND

SAVIOR.

WITHOUT HIM, I'M NOTHING.

Reporter: TERRELL SUGGS

IS ONE OF THE PLAYERS FOR

THE RAVENS DEFENSE, BUT HE

HAD TO SIT OUT BECAUSE OF

MEDICAL INJURIES.

AND IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE HE

WOULD MAKE IT BACK DURING

THE SEASON, BUT HE SAYS GOD

WORKED A MIRACLE.

FOR MY INJURY, THEY TOLD

ME NINE MONTHS TO A YEAR.

AND I CAME BACK IN FIVE AND

A HALF MONTHS.

AND WE DID IT WITH A LOT OF

PRAYER.

PEOPLE ASKED, HOW DID YOU

COME BACK SO FAST?

I HONESTLY TELL THEM,

PRAYER.

NO ONE SEES RESULTS WITHOUT

FAITH.

SO YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN

HIS WORDS.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

LIKE I SAID, I NEEDED A

MIRACLE, AND FROM MY

KNOWLEDGE, 30 YEARS ON THIS

EARTH, THERE IS ONLY ONE

PERSON IN THE MIRACLE

BUSINESS, AND THAT'S JESUS

CHRIST.

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER THE

BOOK "THE BLIND SIDE," AND

NOW HE IS IN HIS FIRST SUPER

BOWL, AND HE GIVES ALL OF

THE GLORY TO GOD.

IT IS AMAZING JUST TO

KNOW WHAT THE ENVIRONMENT IS

I GREW UP IN, AND KNOWING

WHERE I WAS 10, 15 YEARS

AGO.

IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO

GET TO A PLACE LIKE THIS,

LET ALONE HAVE FAITH.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, I

GIVE ALL THANKS TO HIM.

Reporter: THE BIGGEST

STORY AT THIS YEAR'S SUPER

BOWL IS THAT OF RAY LEWIS,

WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THAT AT

THE END OF THE SEASON, HE

WAS GOING TO RETIRE.

NOW, RAY ALREADY HAS ONE

CHAMPIONSHIP RING, AND HE

UNDERSTANDS THAT WHILE

WINNING THE SECOND RING IS A

MAJOR GOAL, THERE IS ONE

GOAL THAT SURPASSES ALL OF

THE REST.

RINGS FADE, THEY

TARNISH.

UT FAITH I HAVE WILL NEVER

DIE.

Pat: THEY'RE BIG.

THEY'RE SKILLFUL.

THEY'RE TOUGH, AND YET THEIR

HEARTS ARE TENDER BECAUSE

THEY SUBMIT TO THE LORD.

RAY LEWIS IS THE MOST

FIERCESOME-LOOKING GUY, BUT

WHEN YOU SEE HIM ON HIS

KNEES AND PRAISING JESUS, IT

IS JUST WONDERFUL.

AND TO THINK THESE ARE THE

TOP ATHLETES IN THE TOP

SPORT, IN A GAME THAT MAY

DRAW AS MANY AS A BILLION

PEOPLE TO WATCH IT AROUND

THE WORLD, AND THESE PEOPLE,

THEY'RE HUMBLE SERVANTS OF

JESUS.

THEY REALIZE THAT FOOTBALL

IS A SPORT.

IT'S A GAME.

AND WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT IS

THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH

THEIR SAVIOR, AND WHAT'S

GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN THEY

DIE.

YOU KNOW, YOU AND I ARE

ETERNAL BEINGS.

KEEP THAT IN MIND.

WE HAVE A SPIRIT WITHIN US.

AND THAT SPIRIT WILL LIVE ON

FOREVER.

AND THE QUESTION IS, WHAT DO

WE DO ON THIS LIFE THAT WE

HAVE, ON THIS EARTH, TO GET

READY FOR THE NEXT ONE?

AND THERE IS ONE SECRET --

ONE -- AND THAT SECRET IS IN

JESUS CHRIST.

IN HIM ARE HIDDEN ALL OF THE

TREASURES OF WISDOM AND

KNOWLEDGE.

IN JESUS.

HE IS THE SAVIOR.

AND I WANT TO ASK YOU RIGHT

NOW, YOU KNOW, SOME OF YOU

MAY THINK YOU'RE BEING SIS

SISSIES TO COME TO JESUS.

THAT RELIGION IS FOR LITTLE

KIDS AND LITTLE OLD LADIES.

YOU DON'T THINK THOSE PEOPLE

ARE WHIMPS, DO YOU?

THEY ARE AS BIG AND TOUGH AS

THEY COME.

AND YET THEY ACKNOWLEDGE

THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THEIR

LORD AND SAVIOR.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

HIM, I WANT YOU TO DO

SOMETHING WITH ME RIGHT

NOW.

DON'T GO ANYWHERE.

RIGHT THIS SECOND, I WANT

YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD AND

REPEAT THESE WORDS WITH ME

IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE LORD.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY RIGHT

NOW, AND LET'S LET THE LORD

TAKE OVER.

THESE WORDS, JESUS -- THAT'S

RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, I BELIEVE IN UP,

LORD.

I KNOW YOU'RE THE SON OF

GOD.

AND I KNOW YOU CAME TO EARTH

TO GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE.

AND I KNOW YOU DIED ON THE

CROSS FOR MY SINS AND FOR

THE SINS OF ALL MANKIND.

AND SO RIGHT NOW, JESUS, I

WANT YOU TO KNOW I SURRENDER

TO YOU.

I BELIEVE IN YOU, AND I OPEN

MY HEART TO YOU.

AND I ASK YOU TO COME INTO

MY LIFE, LIVE YOUR LIFE IN

ME, AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON,

I WILL LIVE FOR YOU AND I

WILL SERVE YOU.

THANK YOU, JESUS, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE COME

INTO MY HEART.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME THAT

PRAYER, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

I THINK IT WILL BE A

BLESSING TO YOU.

YOU SAY, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

YOU JUST PRAYED A PRAYER.

WELL, I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU

A LITTLE BOOKLET.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND IN IT IS A COMPACT DISC

THAT HAS 73 MINUTES OF VERY

INTENSE TEACHING ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENS TO YOU NEXT.

WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE AN

EXCHANGED LIFE, WHAT IT

MEANS TO BE BORN AGAIN.

AND I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

ABSOLUTELY FREE.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, JUST

CALL IN RIGHT NOW.

SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE "A

NEW DAY."

PLEASE SEND IT TO ME.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

JUST CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

SOMEBODY IS HERE THAT LOVES

YOU.

IF FOR ANY REASON THE LINES

ARE BUSY, AND I HOPE THEY'RE

NOT, BUT IF THEY ARE BUSY, I

WANT YOU TO CALL BACK.

THERE WILL BE PEOPLE HERE

ALL DAY LONG.

1-800-759-0700.

IT'S A GREAT DAY!

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, NUTRITIONIST TERRY

GLASSMAN TALKS ABOUT THE

POWER OF EIGHT, AND HOW IT

CAN HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT.

SO YOU WANT TO STAY TUNED

FOR THAT.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BRING

IT ON WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

CASEY SAYS, "I AM 19 YEARS

OF AGE, AND I KNOW I HAVE

SINNED BIG TIME.

IS IT TOO LATE TO ASK GOD

FOR FORGIVENESS?"

WE'LL ANSWER CASEY'S

QUESTION AND MORE, AND

THAT'S COMING UP.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

A PROMINENT ATHEIST WANTS

THE BOY SCOUTS TO LIFT ITS

BAN ON ATHEISTS, IN ADDITION

TO GAYS.

THEY ARE CONSIDERING

REPLACING THE CURRENT BAN ON

GAYS WITH A POLICY THAT

WOULD LET LOCAL TROOPS MAKE

THEIR OWN DECISIONS.

A BOY SCOUT SPOKESMAN SAYS

THE ORGANIZATION IS NOT

CONSIDERING SUCH A CHANGE IN

THAT DUTY TO GOD IS STILL

ONE OF ITS BASIC

PRINCIPLES.

MASSACHUSETTS GOVERNOR DEVAL

PATRICK HAS APPOINTED HIS

FORMER CHIEF-OF-STAFF TO

SERVE AS INTERIM CENTER.

WILLIAM MOW COWEN SAYS HE IS

HUMBLED TO FILL THE SEAT

LEFT BY JOHN KERRY.

HE IS THE SECOND

AFRICAN-AMERICAN TO

REPRESENT MASSACHUSETTS IN

THE SENATE, A POSITION HE

WILL HOLD UNTIL VOTERS ELECT

A NEW SENATOR IN A SPECIAL

ELECTION JUNE 25th.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT CBN

NEW CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, WE HAVE

RECEIVED SOME GREAT E-MAIL

QUESTIONS FROM YOU, AND WE

WANT TO START OUT TODAY WITH

ONE FROM CASEY.

PAT, CASEY SAYS, "I'M 19

YEARS OF AGE, AND I OFTEN

FIND MYSELF WONDERING IF

THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN

JUST DYING.

YOUR SHOW GIVES ME HOPE THAT

THERE IS SOMETHING AFTER

DEATH.

I GREW UP IN A FAMILY THAT

NEVER WENT TO CHURCH, AND I

DON'T KNOW THE FIRST STEP TO

GETTING GOD INTO MY LIFE.

I KNOW I'VE SINNED BIG

TIME.

IS IT TOO LATE TO ASK GOD

FOR FORGIVENESS, AND HOW DO

I KNOW THERE IS LIFE AFTER

DEATH?"

Pat: CASEY, THE REASON

YOU KNOW IS BECAUSE JESUS

CHRIST WENT THERE, AND HE

CAME BACK AND TOLD US ABOUT

IT.

HE SAID, BECAUSE I LIVE,

YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE, ALSO.

HE DIED ON THE CROSS.

THERE IS NO QUESTION HE

DIED.

THEY STUCK A SPEAR IN HIS

SIDE, AND HE WAS DEAD.

AND THEN HE ROSE FROM THE

GRAVE.

NOW, WHAT ABOUT SINNING?

HE WAS THERE ON THE CROSS

BETWEEN TWO REALLY BAD

PEOPLE.

AND ONE OF THEM SAID, LORD,

REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME

INTO YOUR KINGDOM.

AND JESUS SAID, THIS DAY

YOU'LL BE WITH ME IN

PARADISE.

NOW, THIS GUY HAD LIVED A

LIFE OF EVIL.

AND AT THAT MOMENT WHEN HE

CONFESSED TO JESUS, JESUS

SAID YOU'RE GOING TO BE WITH

ME IN PARADISE.

THAT'S THE THING.

IT IS NOT THE WORKS YOU DO.

IT IS THE FACT THAT JESUS

CHRIST DIED.

IT IS ALL HIM.

IF YOU JUST REMEMBER, THAT'S

WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.

BY GRACE YOU'RE SAVED

THROUGH FAITH.

IT IS NOT OF YOURSELF.

IT IS A GIFT OF GOD.

Terry: A VIEWER

SAYS, "MATTHEW 13: 3 SAYS:

"ASSUREDLY I SAY TO YOU,

UNLESS YOU ARE CONVERTED AND

BECOME AS LITTLE CHILDREN,

YOU WILL BY NO MEANS ENTER

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

WHAT DOES THIS VERSE MEAN?"

Pat: A LITTLE CHILD

ACCEPTS WHAT DADDY TELLS

HIM.

A LITTLE CHILD IS OBEDIENT,

USUALLY.

A LITTLE CHILD IS TRUSTING

AND LOVING.

AND THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS.

YOU SEE, WE GET SO

SOPHISTICATED.

WE THINK WE KNOW SO MUCH.

AND THE LONGER WE LIVE AND

THE MORE EDUCATION WE GET,

THE MORE SOPHISTICATED WE

ARE.

DON'T TELL ME ABOUT THAT

RELIGION STUFF; I WENT TO

HARVARD.

I KNOW BETTER.

THERE WAS A HARVARD LAW

PROFESSOR -- HONESTLY -- WHO

SAID HE COULD DO BETTER

WRITING THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

THAN MOSES DID.

HE SAID, I CAN IMPROVE ON

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS.

YOU THINK, HOW ARROGANT CAN

YOU GET?

A LITTLE CHILD WOULDN'T DO

THAT.

A LITTLE CHILD WOULD SAY,

OKAY, DADDY TOLD ME THIS IS

WHAT HAPPENS, AND I BELIEVE

HIM.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS IS LOOKING

FOR.

HE IS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO

WILL BELIEVE HIM, TRUST HIM

LIKE A LITTLE CHILD.

AND THAT'S WHEN THE

KINGDOM -- IT OPENS UP ALL

OF THE TREASURES BECAUSE YOU

OPEN UP AND SAY, FATHER, I

BELIEVE YOU.

I KNOW YOU'RE POWERFUL.

AND I BELIEVE YOU AND I

RECEIVE WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

THAT'S THE MIND OF A LITTLE

CHILD.

ALL RIGHT, WHAT ELSE?

Terry: CHRISTINA SAID,

"LAST YEAR I ACCEPTED JESUS

AS MY SAVIOR.

MY QUESTION IS, AM I DOING

IT RIGHT?

I PRAY AND I BELIEVE IN HIM

AND HIS LOVE.

SOMETIMES I'M AFRAID THAT

I'M LACKING SOMETHING.

I WANT TO BE SURE I'M LIVING

MY LIFE IN THE WAY HE

WISHES."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS THE

SPIRIT BEARS WITNESS WITH

OUR SPIRIT THAT WE'RE

CHILDREN OF GOD.

YOU'LL HAVE A WITNESS IN

YOUR HEART AND A PEACE.

NOW, IF YOU HAVE UNCONFESSED

SIN IN YOUR LIFE, IS THERE

ANYTHING YOU'RE DOING THAT

YOU KNOW IS WRONG, AND YOU

KEEP ON DOING IT, YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO HAVE PEACE.

BUT IT ISN'T SOME FORMULA.

I WANT TO SAY THIS OVER AND

OVER AGAIN.

GOD IS NOT A COMPUTER.

AND WE DON'T DEAL WITH

FORMULAS.

YOU'VE GOT TO DOT THIS AND

CROSS THAT AND SO FORTH, AND

THAT GETS YOU IN.

THAT'S WHAT ONE GROUP USED

TO BELIEVE, THAT YOU HAD TO

SAY SOME MAGIC WORDS WHEN

YOU GOT, YOU KNOW, EVERY

STEP OF THE WAY.

AND WHEN YOU GOT TO THIS

STEP, YOU HAD TO SAY

SOMETHING IN ORDER TO GET

INTO THE NEXT STEP.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

YOU OPEN YOUR HEART TO THE

LORD AND YOU RECEIVE HIM.

WHEN YOU RECEIVE HIM, BEGIN

TO THANK HIM.

WHEN YOU HAVE UNCONFESSED

SIN IN YOUR LIFE, GET RID OF

IT AND HE'LL FORGIVE YOU.

Terry: CONSTANCE SAYS,

"CAN GOD FORGIVE A BROKEN

VOW.

I BROKE A VOW OF CHASTITY,

AND I SAID IF I BROKE THE

LAW, GOD SHOULD PUNISH ME.

I SAID EVEN IT MEANT I

COULDN'T HAVE CHILDREN.

NOW I'M HAVING TROUBLE

HAVING CHILDREN.

IS THIS RESULT?"

Pat: YOU HAVE PUT A

CURSE ON YOURSELF, BUT IT

HAD NO REASON, NO VALID

VALIDITY, AND YOU DID

SOMETHING AND YOU FEEL

GUILTY.

OKAY.

SO ASK THE LORD TO FORGIVE

YOU AND CLEANSE YOU.

I DEALT WITH SOMEBODY WHO

COULDN'T BE FILLED WITH THE

HOLY SPIRIT BECAUSE SHE

HAD -- WAS IMMORAL, AND HAD

A TRIP TO THE ISLANDS, AND

SHE HAD SEX OUTSIDE OF

MARRIAGE, AND SHE FELT

GUILTY.

WELL, YOU FEEL GUILTY.

YOU MADE A PLEDGE, YOU

DIDN'T MAKE A PLEDGE -- HOW

MANY PEOPLE MAKE NEW YEAR'S

RESOLUTIONS, I'M NOT GOING

TO EAT CHEESECAKE FOR A

YEAR.

AND TWO WEEKS LATER, YOU SEE

A PIECE AND I JUST BROKE MY

VOW.

IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

SO FORGIVE YOURSELF, AND

THEN LET GOD FORGIVE YOU.

AND THEN ASK HIM FOR HIS

BLESSING, AND HE'LL GIVE IT

TO YOU.

THANK YOU FOR THOSE

QUESTIONS.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

AND I HOPE THAT HELPS YOU.

Terry: YES.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THOSE QUESTIONS NOW.

BUT WE'VE GOT SOMETHING ELSE

COMING UP.

Pat: HEY, GYPSIES.

IT SEEMS SO ROMANTIC, THE

GYPSY VIOLIN, AND THE OTHER

STUFF OF LEGEND.

BUT GYPSIES ARE AMONG THE

POOREST PEOPLE IN THE

UKRAINE.

THEY'RE TREATED AS OUTCASTS,

AND MOST OF THEM DON'T HAVE

ENOUGH FOOD, CLOTHING, OR

EVEN SHELTER TO MAKE IT

THROUGH THE WINTER.

VODLIC AND HIS MOTHER,

ROSA, STRUGGLE EVERY WINTER

JUST TO STAY WARM.

WE HAVE A TERRIBLE TIME.

THIS PROVIDES NO WARMTH,

JUST SMOKE.

I CHOKE ALL OF THE TIME.

MY MOTHER DOES, TOO.

Reporter: THE SMOKE

INSIDE THE HOUSE IS SO THICK

AND SUFFOCATING, IT COULD

KILL THEM.

SO WHEN WE WENT TO THEIR

VILLAGE ON A MEDICAL

MISSION, WE KNEW WE HAD TO

DO SOMETHING EXTRA TO HELP

THEM.

WE PUT IN INSULATION, FIXED

THEIR WINDOWS AND DOORS, AND

INSTALLED A NEW STOVE.

I LOVE THE NEW STOVE.

IT DOESN'T SMOKE AT ALL.

I ALSO GOT SOME GOOD

CLOTHES, WHICH WERE VERY

NICE.

Reporter: WITH THE HELP

OF CBN, VODLIC AND HIS MOM

CAN COOK HOT MEALS EASILY

AND SAFELY.

AND THEY WON'T GET SICK OR

RISK SUFFOCATING OR FREEZING

ANYMORE.

IT IS SNOWING OUTSIDE,

BUT INSIDE WE WILL BE WARM

AND COMFORTABLE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR

US.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

WELL, IF WE CAN REACH OUT

AND HELP PEOPLE.

PEOPLE SUFFER.

IF WE CAN REACH OUT AND

TOUCH THEM, ONE AFTER THE

OTHER, WE CAN BE THE HAND OF

GOD EXTENDED.

YOU SAY, HOW CAN I DO THAT?

I CAN'T GO TO THE UKRAINE.

NO, YOU CAN'T, BUT WE CAN

AND DO.

HOW DO YOU HELP SEND US?

WELL, "THE 700 CLUB"

MEMBERSHIP IS 65 CENTS A

DAY, $20 A MONTH.

YOU CAN EVEN DO PLEDGE

EXPRESS AND GET YOUR BANK TO

DO IT ON A MONTHLY BASIS.

BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT

GORDON HAS PUT TOGETHER.

HE HAS PUT TOGETHER SOME

TESTIMONIES THAT ARE REALLY

POWERFUL, CALLED "LIFE

BEYOND THE GRAVE."

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO DIED

AND CAME BACK.

THEY'RE EXTRAORDINARY

STORIES.

SOME WENT UP TO HEAVEN; SOME

WENT DOWN TO HELL.

BUT THEY'LL TELL YOU ABOUT

WHAT IT WAS LIKE.

WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU AS

OUR GIFT TO YOU AS YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

SO CALL 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

SOME UNUSUAL HEALTH

ADVICELY: EAT MORE, NOT

LESS.

TERRY GLASSMAN TALKS ABOUT

EMPOWERED EATING WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Terry: GET THIS HEALTH

ADVICE: EAT MORE, NOT LESS.

DON'T GET STUCK AT THE GYM.

AND ALSO SLEEP ALONE.

SOUNDS STRANGE?

BUT IT IS ALL PART OF AN

APPROACH TO HEALTH AND

FITNESS THAT CELEBRATES THE

POWER OF EIGHT.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: TERRY

GLASSMAN IS A REGISTERED

DIETITIAN AND NUTRITION

EXPERT.

SHE SAYS IT IS TIME TO GIVE

NOURISHING FOOD A STARRING

ROLE IN OUR LIFE.

SIMPLE, PLANT-BASED FOODS

ARE THE BEST.

HER EIGHT EMPOWERING FOODS

WILL HELP YOU LOSE UP TO

20 POUNDS IN EIGHT WEEKS,

AND PAVE THE WAY FOR A WHOLE

NEW YOU.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

NUTRITIONIST TERRY

GLASSMAN.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME

BACK.

Terry: YOU TALK ABOUT

EMPOWERING FOODS.

PEOPLE LIKE TO FEEL LIKE

FOOD ISN'T USING THEM,

THEY'RE USING IT.

LET'S TALK ABOUT EATING

MORE, NOT LESS.

THAT IS AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO

PEOPLE WHO ARE NOW TRYING TO

KEEP THOSE NEW YEAR'S

RESOLUTIONS AND FEEL LIKE

THEY HAVE TO STARVE

THEMSELVES TO DO IT.

IN THE EIGHT RULES IN THE

BOOK "THE NEW YOU AND

IMPROVED DIET," ONLY ONE

DIRECTLY RELATES TO FOOD.

ALL OF THE OTHER RULES ARE

ABOUT THE OTHER LIFESTYLE OF

FACTORS, STRESS AND SLEEP,

THAT AFFECT NOT ONLY YOUR

HEALTH, BUT YOUR WAISTLINE.

SO THE FIRST ONE, EAT MORE,

NOT LESS, IS ABOUT EATING

EMPOWERED.

WHAT I MEAN WHEN I SAY

EATING EMPOWERED, I LIKE

PEOPLE TO FLIP THEIR FOOD

ATTITUDE.

INSTEAD OF THINKING ABOUT

WHAT YOU CAN'T EAT -- PEOPLE

OFTEN WHEN THEY START A DIET

AND EXERCISE PLAN, THEY

THINK I CAN'T HAVE THAT AND

IT IS ALL NEGATIVE ENERGY.

Terry: AND THE MINUTE

YOU THINK THAT, WHAT IS THE

FOOD YOU WANT?

CORRECT.

I WANT PEOPLE TO BE POSITIVE

AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY

CAN EAT.

WHEN YOU FOCUS ON THE HEALTH

BENEFITS OF FOOD, FOODS THAT

ARE GOING TO BE GOOD FOR

YOUR SKIN AND PREVENT HEART

DISEASE AND CANCER.

WEIGHT LOSS IS A PART OF

THAT.

YOU FEEL BETTER AND YOU LOOK

BETTER, AGAIN, AS A

BY-PRODUCT.

AND YOUR MORE MOTIVATED TO

EAT THESE EMPOWERING, REAL

FOODS.

INTERPRETER WHEN

Terry: WHEN YOU EAT

THIS

WAY, YOU'RE THINKING

ABOUT MAKING A BETTER YOU.

WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE

BENEFITS OF FOOD, HERE WE

HAVE THESE EIGHT WHAT I CALL

EMPOWERING FOODS.

HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS, FIBRE,

AND THEY'RE GOOD FOR YOUR

HEART AND SKIN.

I WANT TO HAVE THOSE

BLUEBERRIES.

IT IS NOT I CAN'T HAVE THAT

CHOCOLATE CAKE.

AND I TELL PEOPLE TO LEARN

TO LISTEN TO THEIR BODIES.

EAT WHEN YOU'RE SLIGHTLY

H1N HUNGRY, AND STOP EATING

WHEN YOU'RE SLIGHTLY

SATISFYING.

THAT'S HARD TO DO, BUT I

GUIDE PEOPLE THROUGH THAT.

YOU DON'T NE TO FOCUS ON THE

CALORIES.

I DON'T EVEN PUT CALORIES IN

THE BOOK.

YOU NATURALLY, ALMOST

AUTOMATICALLY, LOSE WEIGHT.

Terry: WHEN YOU'RE

EATING FOODS THAT FEED YOU

IN A GOOD WAY, LIKE THIS,

DOES THAT KEEP THOSE

CRAVINGS FROM COMING?

IT DOES WHEN YOU FOLLOW

ON THE PLAN.

I HAVE AN EIGHT WEEK PLAN

AND A CLEANSE.

THE CLEANSE HAS EIGHT FOODS

AND YOU EAT CONSISTENT OF

THROUGHOUT THE DAY, REAL

FOOD.

BUT WHEN YOU LEARN TO EAT

CONSISTENTLY THROUGHOUT THE

DAY, REAL FOODS THAT ARE

NATURALLY SWEET AND SAVORY,

YOU DO REDUCE THOSE

CRAVINGS.

Terry: I LOVE THE FACT

THAT YOU START WITH A

CLEANSE.

IT IS A SIGNIFICANT THING IN

THE WORLD WE LIVE IN TODAY.

IT JUMP-STARTS YOU.

TAKE OUT ALL OF THE

PROCESSED FOODS AND THE

SODIUM AND THE SUGAR.

IT IS THE FRAMEWORK FOR THE

REST OF THE PLAN AND THE WAY

YOU SHOULD BE EATING FOR THE

LONG-TERM.

AND YOU CAN LOSE ABOUT FIVE

TO SEVEN POUNDS IN THOSE

FIRST FOUR DAYS.

YOU'RE MOTIVATED AND YOU'RE

RESETTING YOUR BODY AND

TASTEBUDS.

Terry: THESE ARE THE

FOODS THAT --

THESE ARE MY FAVORITE

EIGHT EMPOWERING FOODS.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF MY

FAVORITES.

I LOVE GREEN TEA.

IT HELPS YOU BURN FAT.

I LOVE YOGURT.

CALCIUM, WHICH, OBVIOUSLY,

IS GOOD FOR HELPING BUILD

STRONG BONES.

AND CINNAMON, JUST THAT

ALONE CAN HELP RELAX YOU.

BLUEBERRIES WE KNOW ARE

LOADED WITH FIBER AND

ANTIOXIDANTS, AND SO THEY'RE

GOING TO KEEP YOU FULL AND

SATISFY THAT SWEET CRAVING.

AND BLACK BEANS AND SWEET

POTATOES.

THERE ARE A WHOLE BUNCH IN

THERE.

AND WE HAVE CHILI PEPPERS,

WHICH HAS CA CAPSAICIN,

WHICH IS KNOWN TO HELP

REDUCE YOUR APPETITE BECAUSE

YOU'RE SO MUCH MORE

SATISFIED WHEN YOU'RE EATING

IT.

SO YOU'RE MORE SATISFIED.

AND THEN THEY ALSO HAVE BEEN

SHOWN TO EVEN HELP YOU BURN

A LITTLE BIT OF WEIGHT, BURN

A LITTLE BIT OF FAT.

Terry: THAT'S THE FIRST

SEGMENT.

NOW YOU'VE GOT EIGHT MORE

RIGHT HERE.

THESE ARE THE

STRESS-RELIEVING FOODS.

BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT STRESS

WREAKS HAVOC ON YOUR

HEALTH.

THE SECOND RULE OF THE BOOK

IS CALLED BREATHE YOUR WAY

THIN.

BACK, REMEMBER I WAS TALKING

ABOUT AT THE BEGINNING OF

THIS SEGMENT HOW FOOD IS ONE

COMPONENT OF BEING HEALTHY.

VERY OFTEN, PEOPLE ARE SO

SURPRISED WHEN I TELL THEM

TO FOCUS ON THEIR STRESS,

AND TO FOCUS ON THEIR

SLEEP.

BUT IF WE DON'T FOCUS ON

THOSE THINGS, WE ARE NOT

GOING TO LOSE WEIGHT.

WHEN YOU'RE STRESSED, YOUR

HORMONE CORTISOL INCREASES.

IT CAUSES YOU TO GAIN WEIGHT

SPECIFICALLY IN YOUR

MID-SECTION.

IT IS SO CRITICAL TO FOCUS

ON MANAGING YOUR STRESS.

I SAY FIND STRESS RELIEVING

FOODS.

AND I DON'T MEAN MAC AND

CHEESE OR ICE CREAM.

I SAY FOODS THAT ARE GOING

TO HELP YOU RELIEVE STRESS.

THINGS LIKE OATS AND WHOLE

GRAINS HELP YOU'RE BODY

PRODUCE SEROTONIN.

AND THAT'S A NATURAL

FEEL-GOOD HORMONE.

AND ORANGES ARE LOADED WITH

VITAMIN "C."

VITAMIN "C" HAS BEEN SHOWN

TO HELP OUR BODIES RECOVER

FROM STRESS.

CELERY.

THE CRUNCH ALONE CAN BE

SATISFYING AND CAN HELP

RELIEVE STRESS.

BUT THERE IS ALSO A COMPOUND

IN CELERY THAT HAS BEEN

FOUND TO HELP LOWER OUR

BLOOD PRESSURE.

GRASS-FED BEEF IS LOADED

WITH OMEGA-3s.

AND YOU'RE MORE LIKELY TO

NOT BECOME DEPRESSED.

THE BOOK IS LOADED WITH LOTS

OF STRESS-RELIEVING FOODS.

Terry: BEFORE WE GET TO

THE END, I WANT TO GET TO

THE PAMPERING FOOD.

SELF-CARE.

IF YOU DON'T TAKE CARE OF

YOURSELF.

IF YOU DON'T PUT THAT OXYGEN

MASK ON YOU, YOU CAN'T TAKE

CARE OF EVERYONE ELSE.

WHEN YOU TAKE CARE OF

YOURSELF, YOU'RE GOING TO

SLEEP BETTER AND LOSE

WEIGHT.

ALSO A LOT OF THE REAL FOODS

YOU SHOULD BE EATING, THEY

CAN ALSO BE USED FOR YOUR

CARE AS FAR AS YOUR SKIN

GOES AND YOUR BEAUTY

REGIMEN.

A FEW OF THESE I LOVE,

PAPAYA, LOADED WITH VITAMIN

"C," AND YOU CAN PUT IT ON

YOUR SKIN.

AND ZINC IS ACTUALLY GOOD

FOR YOUR OVERALL SKIN

INTEGRITY.

COCONUT, LOADED WITH THE

M.C.

T.s, THE CERTAIN TYPE

OF FAT THAT CANNOT ONLY HELP

YOU BURN FAT, BUT I LIKE TO

MIX IT TO MY MOISTERIZER AND

APPLY IT TOP CLE TOPICLY TO

MY SKIN.

AND FIGS A GREAT.

Terry: I WANT YOU TO

KNOW WE'RE TOUCHING THE TIP

OF THE ICEBERG HERE.

YOU NEED TO GETTER RE'S

BOOK.

IT IS CALLED "THE NEW AND

IMPROVED DIET."

IF YOU'RE SOMEONE WHO HAS

MADE A RESOLUTION THIS YEAR,

AND YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT

OR YOU JUST WANT TO BE

HEALTHY, THIS IS THE BOOK TO

READ.

IT IS THE RIGHT WAY TO THE

NEW YOU FOR

THIS NEW YEAR.

THANK YOU, TERRY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME.

Terry: PAT?

Pat: LET'S DO IT.

LET'S BREATHE AND LET'S BE

HEALTHY AND LOSE ALL KINDS

OF WEIGHT.

TOMORROW, A MAN TAKES A

HALF-HOUR TRIP SOME PLACE

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO.

HE WENT TO HELL.

AND HE CAME BACK.

HE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT IT.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM THE PSALMS,

PSALM 90: "LET THE BEAUTY OF

THE LORD OUR GOD BE UPON US

AND ESTABLISH THE WORK OF

OUR HANDS."

BYE-BYE.

SEE YOU LATER.
