( applause )

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WELL, I THINK YESTERDAY WILL

BE REMEMBERED AS THE DAY THE

LIGHTS WENT OUT.

34 MINUTES OF SEMI

DARKNESS.

Terry: THAT'S TRUE.

THAT WAS A LITTLE DARKNESS.

Pat: IT WAS A GREAT

GAME.

QUITE A GAME.

OUR CONGRATULATIONS TO THE

RAVENS, AND TO THE 49ers

FOR DOING WHAT THEY D.IT

TURNED OUT TO BE A SUPER

BATTLE.

JUST WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE

BALTIMORE WOULD WIN ON A

BLOWOUT, THE 49ers CAME

BACK.

Terry: AND IT WASN'T

DECIDED UNTIL THE LAST FEW

SECONDS.

SEAN BROWN HAS THE STORY ON

SUPESUPER BOWL XLVII.

Reporter: HEL HELLO

AND WELCOME BACK TO MERCEDES

BENZ STUDIO.

WHERE THE BALTIMORE RAVENS

WITHIN THEIR SECOND SUPER

BOWL, BEATING OUT THE SAN

FRANCISCO 49ers.

IN THE FIRST QUARTER, THE

RAVENS DREW FIRST BLOOD HAVE

THIS PASS BY FLACO.

AFTER THIS 62-YARD DRIVE,

THE 49ers TRY TO ANSWER,

BUT HAVE TO SETTLE FOR

THREE.

THIS TIME, RIGHT DOWN THE

MIDDLE.

Reporter: AFTER A

49ers FUMBLE, THE RAVENS

RECOVER AND STRIKE AGAIN

WITH THIS SHORT PASS.

RAVENS 14-9ers, 3.

AND JOE FLACO AIRS IT OUT TO

JONES FOR THIS 47-YARD

TOUCHDOWN PASS.

RAVENS ON TOP, 21-3.

BACK FROM THE HALF, ON THE

QUIC KICKOFF, JONES EXTENDS

THE RAVENS' LEAD TO 24.

PASSED THE 50, AND HE IS

GOING.

INSIDE THE 20, AND A KICKOFF

RETURN.

THEN AFTER A 35-MINUTE GAME

DELAY DUE TO A POWER OUTAGE,

HERE COMES THE 49ers.

TOUCHDOWN, 9ers.

AND THEY KEEP COMING.

THEY SCORE!

Reporter: AND HERE IS

FRANK GORE SNEAK AGAIN FOR

THE SCORE, WHICH CUT THE

RAVENS' LEAD DOWN TO EIGHT.

THEN AFTER THIS FUMBLE BY

RAY RICE, RAVENS 28,

49ers, 23.

THE RAVENS TRY TO GAIN SOMEpdét

MOMENTUM BACK, BUT HAVE TO

SETTLE FOR THIS FIELD GOAL,

MAINTAINING THEIR LEAD,

31-23.

HERE COME THE 49ers

AGAIN.

HERE IS KAPERNINICK FOR THE

SCORE, BUT THEY'RE STILL

DOWN BY 2.

THEN THE RAVENS ON TOP BY 5,

THEY TAKE A SAFETY.

BUT

THE 9ers

ARE STILL

SHORT, AND THE RAVENS ARE

SUPER BOWL CHAMPS.

AND THE RAVENS WIN!

I JUST THOUGHT WE WON

THIS GAME.

SO WE STARTED MAKING PLAYS,

AND THE DEFENSE GOT TO TURN

OVER, AND WE GOT IT.

I SAID, WE'VE GOT THIS.

I'VE GOT THIS.

ALL WE'VE GOT TO DO IS GET

THE BALL BACK IN OUR HANDS,

AND WE CAN MAKE THIS

HAPPEN.

RAY'S A GREAT PERSON, AND

EVERYBODY KNOWS HE IS AN

UNBELIEVABLE FOOTBALL

PLAYER, BUT HE IS THE BEST

TEAMMATE.

HE IS UNBELIEVABLE.

THIS IS THE ONE THING

THAT IS NOT GOING TO

SEPARATE US.

WE'LL FOREVER BE CHAMPIONS

BECAUSE WE WON A SUPER

BOWL.

WORDS CAN'T EVEN DESCRIBE

IT.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

ALL KINDS OF EMOTIONS GO

THROUGH YOUR HEAD.

WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE IT.

THERE IS ONLY ONE MAN IN

THE BUSINESS OF MIRACLES,

ONLY ONE MAN, AND THAT IS

JESUS CHRIST.

THINK ABOUT EVERYTHING THIS

TEAM HAS BEEN THROUGH.

ON DEFENSE, WE HAD TWO GUYS

THAT STARTED EVERY GAME.

SO THERE IS ONLY ONE MAN IN

THE BUSINESS OF MIRACLES,

AND THAT IS JESUS CHRIST.

WE'RE A PRAYING TEAM, AND

WE'RE A TEAM OF FAITH.

AND ALL PRAISE GOES TO GOD.

WHEN GOD IS FOR YOU,

NOBODY CAN BE AGAINST YOU,

NO MATTER WHAT YOU GO

THROUGH IN YOUR LIFE.

YOU KEEP YOUR FAITH IN HIM.

EVERYTHING PLAYED OUT THE

WAY IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE.

I DREAMS AFTER DREAMS, AND

EVERY TIME I SAW THIS

MOMENT, AND I JUST TRIED TO

LET MY TEAMMATES KNOW WHAT

THIS MOMENT WOULD FEEL

LIKE.

LAST NIGHT, WHEN I HAD THE

CONVERSATION WITH HIM, IT

WAS FROM MY HEART, WHAT THIS

MINUTE WOULD FEEL LIKE, AND

WHAT GOD HAS SHOWN ME FOR US

TO FINISH IT THE WAY IT

DID.

OUR SERMON THIS MORNING WAS,

FINISH THE RACE.

AND AS A TEAM, WE FINISHED

THE RACE.

SEAN BROWN FROM NEW

ORLEANS.

Pat: AMAZING.

DID YOU WATCH IT?

Terry: OF COURSE.

THEY SAID THREE POINTS WHAT

BE IT.

Pat: I THOUGHT THE

49ers WOULD HAVE A

TOUCHDOWN.

BUT APPARENTLY THEY GOT SO

FAR BEHIND STARTING THE

GAME, AND THAT 108-YARD

TOUCHDOWN JUST KIND OF SANK

THE SHIP.

Terry: I THINK WHAT YOU

SAY POLITICALLY, IT IS

ALWAYS BETTER TO BE

UNDERESTIMATED.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

THEY PLAYED THE

EXPECTATION.

IT'S AMAZING.

THE HYPE ON THIS THING, THE

SPOTS -- I WAS ASKING OUR

PRODUCER, LAST YEAR WAS

$3.5 MILLION FOR A 30-SECOND

SPOT.

THIS YEAR IT WAS

$3.8 MILLION, FROM WHAT WE

GATHERED, THAT'S THE REST

ESTIMATE, FOR 30 SECONDS OF

AIR TIME.

AND SOME OF THOSE

COMMERCIALS WERE HORRIBLE.

Terry: SOME OF THOSE

COMMERCIALS WEREN'T WORTH 30

SECONDS.

GOOD GRIEF.

Pat: THE CUTE ONE WAY

THAT LITTLE HORSE.

Terry: THE CLYDESDALE.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST,

REALLY.

Pat: THAT WAS SWEET.

SO MUCH FOR THAT.

BUT THAT TEAM -- THE COLTS

WERE MOVED FROM BALTIMORE TO

INDIANAPOLIS.

AND THEN THE BROWNS CAME

FROM CLEVELAND DOWN TO

BALTIMORE AND GOT RENAMED

THE RAVENS.

AND OOH, WOW, I'LL TELL YOU,

IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE.

WELL, THE SHOWDOWN BETWEEN

THE RAVENS AND THE 49ers

IS OVER.

AND NOW WASHINGTON -- HERE

WE GO AGAIN -- IT IS NOT

NEAR AS MUCH FUN -- THEY'RE

GETTING READY FOR ANOTHER

SHOWDOWN OVER TAXES.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: THIS STORY WILL

COME ACROSS AS A SHOCKER TO

A LOT OF FOLKS, PAT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HARRY

REID SAYS WASHINGTON NEEDS

MORE -- GUESS WHAT -- TAXES,

AS PART OF A PLAN TO CUT THE

BUDGET DEFICIT.

THE PRESIDENT TOLD CBS THAT

THE GOVERNMENT CAN TRIM

LOOPHOLES AND LIMIT SOME

DEDUCTIONS TO RAISE MORE

MONEY.

ALONG WITH WHAT HE TOLD

SMART SPENDING CUTS.

REID TOLD ABC THAT IT HAS TO

INCLUDES DISCUSSIONS ABOUT

MORE TAXES.

BUT REPUBLICANS MAY NOT GO

ALONE.

THEY AGREED TO NEW INCOME

RATES AS PART OF THE DEAL ON

THE FLRVEG, AN FISCAL

CLIFF, BUT THEY SAY FUTURE

TALKS SHOULD TALK ABOUT

TRIMMING THE BUDGET, NOT

MORE TAXES.

Pat: JAMES BAKER HAD AN

OP-ED PIECE I THOUGHT WAS

VERY BRILLIANT.

HE SAID, SURE, YOU CAN RAISE

TAXES, BUT THE OTHER GUYS

HAVE TO AGREE TO SPENDING

CUTS.

THE MINUTE THE SPENDING CUTS

AREN'T IN PLACE, YOU PUT THE

TAX RATES BACK DOWN.

THEY SAID YOU HAD TO RAISE

TAXES ON THE RICH, AND WE

DID.

WE DID WHAT YOU ASKED FOR.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU

ANYMORE.

BUT THAT WAS THE -- HARRY

HOPKINS USED TO WORK FOR

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT, AND HE

SAID THE SECRET TO GETTING

ELECTED IS TAX AND TAX,

SPEND AND SPEND, AND ELECT

AND ELECT.

YOU TAX, SPEND, AND GET

ELECTED.

SO THE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING

FOR MONEY, AND THIS TIME,

THOUGH, IT IS GOING TO BE

OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKET.

AND I THINK THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE WON'T LIKE IT MUCH.

BUT GET READY FOR A LOT OF

MESS.

THE SUPER BOWL WAS CHILD'S

PLAY COMPARED TO WHAT

THEY'RE GOING TO BE DOING.

Lee: THE PAKISTANI GIRL

SHOT BY THE TABL TALIBAN IS

IN STABLE CONDITION IN A

BRITISH HOSPITAL AFTER

SURGERIES TO REPAIR HER

SKULL AND HER HEARING.

SHE MADE HEADLINES LAST FALL

WHEN ISLAMIC MILITANTS

TARGETED HER FOR SPEAKING

OUT FOR GIRLS' EDUCATION IN

THE PAKISTAN.

SHE HAS BEEN IN THE U.K.

EVER SINCE RECEIVING MEDICAL

CARE.

DOCTORS ARE SAID TO BE VERY

PLEASED WITH HER PROGRESS IN

THIS LATEST OPERATION.

SHE TOLD HER FOL WERS

FOLLOWERS SHE IS GETTING

BETTER DAY BY DAY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS GAYS

SHOULD BE ANNOUNCED IN THE

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA.

LAST WEEK THE GROUP

ANNOUNCED IT MAY END ITS BAN

ON GAY SCOUTS, AS WELL AS

LEADERS.

THAT DECISION COULD COME AS

EARLY AS WEDNESDAY WHEN THE@ñ

NATIONAL SCOUTS BOARD OF

DIRECTORS MEETS IN TEXAS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SERVES AS

THE HONORARY PRESIDENT OF

THE BOY SCOUTS.

WELL, SUPER BOWL SUNDAY HAS

TURNED INTO THE SECOND

BIGGEST EATING HOLIDAY INN

THE U.S. AFTER THANKSGIVING,

AND THE MOST POPULAR FOOD,

CHICKEN WINGS.

THERE WAS A CONCERN ABOUT A

SHORTAGE OF WINGS, BUT THAT

DIDN'T HAPPEN.

AMERICANS ATE AN ESTIMATED

1.25 BILLION CHICKEN WINGS.

THE NUMBER TWO CHOICE,

PIZZA.

PIZZA HUT EXPECTED TO SELL

MORE THAN 2 MILLION PIZZAS

ON SUNDAY.

THAT IS ABOUT

23 MILLION FEET OF PIZZA.

THAT'S ENOUGH PIZZA TO CROSS

THE GOLDENGATE BRIDGE MORE

THAN 1200 TIMES.

PAT?

Pat: THINK OF ALL OF

THOSE LITTLE CHICKENS THAT

HAVE THEIR WINGS PULLED

OFF.

IT IS ANIMAL CRUELTY.

Terry: IF YOU CALL

PETA, I'M LEAVING TOWN.

Pat: THE LITTLE CHEK

CHICKENS DON'T HAVE ANY

WINGS.

Terry: THOSE NUMBERS

SORT OF TAKE YOUR APPETITE

AWAY.

Pat: I DON'T MIND

CHICKEN WINGS.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS TO THE REST

OF THE CHICKEN?

Terry: WELL, PEOPLE EAT

IT.

Pat: THEY DON'T JUST

POWEL PULL THOSE WINGS OFF

THOSE POOR CHICKENS.

ANIMAL CRUELTY.

Terry: UP NEXT, A REAL

SHOCKER: NOW DOCTORS ARE

SAYING THAT CHOLESTEROL IS

GOOD FOR YOU AND THAT THE

PEOPLE WITH HIGH CHOLESTEROL

ACTUALLY LIVE LONGER.

OUR HEALTH REPORTER LAURIE

JOHNSON JOINS US WITH THE

LATEST RESEARCH WHEN WE COME

BACK.

*

Pat: WELL, WE DO HEALTH

FEATURES ON THIS PROGRAM,

AND I THINK FIVE PEOPLE

FINALLY AGREE.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE BEEN

HEARING, I'M GOING TO TRUST

MY HEART TO LIPITOR.

AND THE THING WE SHOULD DO

WITH LIPITOR IS LOWER

CHOLESTEROL.

CHOLESTEROL IS THE ENEMY, IT

IS THE KILLER.

AND FOR DECADES WE'VE LOOKED

AT CHOLESTEROL AS THE NUMBER

ONE PUBLIC HEALTH E ENEMY.

BUT NOW NEW RESEARCH --

THEY'RE ALWAYS BRINGING OUT

NEW RESEARCH -- THAT SHOWS

THAT HIGH CHOLESTEROL IS

ACTUALLY A GOOD THING.

SO WHAT'S THE DEAL?

HEALTH REPORTER LAURIE

JOHNSON IS GOING TO BRING US

THE LATEST FINDINGS ABOUT

FAT.

Reporter: 20 YEARS AGO

DOCTORS TOLD US TO STAY AWAY

FROM HIGH-FAT FOODS, LIKE

BUTTER, CHEESE, BACON AND

EGGS, BECAUSE THEY RAISED

CHOLESTEROL AND COULD LEAD

TO HEART DISEASE.

AMERICA RESPONDED AND

STOPPED EATING FAT.

IN ITS PLACE, HOWEVER, WE

ATE MORE SUGAR AND OTHER

CARBOHYDRATES.

AND HOW DID THAT WORK OUT?

NOT GREAT.

AS A WHOLE, AMERICANS GREW

FATTER AND SICKER THAN

BEFORE.

IT LOOKS LIKE BACK THEN

SCIENTISTS MAY HAVE REACHED

THE WRONG CONCLUSION.

A GROWING NUMBER OF MEDICAL

EXPERTS NOW SAY THINGS LIKE

WEIGHT GAIN, HEART DISEASE,

AND OTHER ILLNESSES ARE NOT

CAUSED BY CHOLESTEROL, BUT

BY SOMETHING DIFFERENT,

CALLED INFLAMMATION.

THAT MEANS INSTEAD OF

AVOIDING FOODS THAT RAISE

OUR CHOLESTEROL, WE NEED TO

AVOID THAT CAUSE

INFLAMMATION.

DR. BEVERLY TEETER STUDIES

HOW DIFFERENT KINDS OF FAT

IN FOOD AFFECT OUR HEALTH.

SHE SAYS SCIENTISTS WRONGLY

BLAMED CHOLESTEROL FOR HEART

DISEASE WHEN THEY SAW HIGH

LEVELS OF IT IN DAMAGED

BLOOD VESSELS.

TEETER BELIEVES THE BODY PUT

THE CHOLESTEROL THERE TO FIX

THE PROBLEM, WHICH WAS

ACTUALLY CAUSED BY SOMETHING

ELSE: INFLAMMATION.

IT IS THE INFLAMMATION IN

THE VESSELS THAT START THE

LESION.

THE BODY THEN SENDS THE

CHOLESTEROL, LIKE A SCAP, TO

COVER OVER IT AND PROTECT

THE BLOOD SYSTEM AND THE

VESSEL WALL FROM FURTHER

DAMAGE.

Reporter: RESEARCH ALSO

SHOWS CHOLESTEROL CAN

PROTECT AGAINST RESPIRATORY

AND GASTROINTESTINAL

PROBLEMS, HELPS CREATE

VITAMIN "D," AND PEOPLE WITH

HIGH CHOLESTEROL TEND TO

LIVE LONGER.

I COME FROM A FAMILY THAT

HAS MY MOTHER'S SIDE HAD

NATURALLY HIGH CHOLESTEROL.

HER CHOLESTEROL WAS BETWEEN

380 AND 420 WHEN I STARTED

WATCHING HER MEDICAL

RECORDS, AND SHE DIED AT

97.

SO I DON'T THINK THAT

CHOLESTEROL WAS TOO BAD FOR

HER.

Reporter: IT'S ALSO

ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT IN THE

BRAIN, WHICH CONTAINS MORE

CHOLESTEROL THAN ANY OTHER

ORGAN.

AND NEEDS CHOLESTEROL IN

ORDER FOR BRAIN CELLS TO

PASS MESSAGES TO EACH

OTHER.

SO WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD

CHOICES, DR. TEETER SAYS

DON'T WORRY IF IT RAISES

YOUR CHOLESTEROL.

FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON

REDUCING INFLAMMATION, WITH

OMEGA-3s, AND NATURAL

SATURATED FADS.

SOME FATS, HOWEVER, CAUSE

INFLAMMATION.

AVOID TOO MANY OMEGA 6s

AND TRANS-FATS.

HOW DO YOU TELL THE

DIFFERENCE?

VEGETABLE OILS AND

MAYONNAISE CONTAIN HIGH

LEVELS OF OMEGA 6s, SO BE

CAREFUL HOW MUCH YOU

CONSUME.

AS FAR AS OMEGA-3s, SUCH

AS FISH, OLIVE OIL AND

WALNUTS, TAKE AN EXTRA

HELPING, OR A DAILY FISH

SUPPLEMENTS.

AT ONE TIME DIETITIANS

CONSIDERED MARGI MARGARINE

A TRANS-FAT, BUT WE NOW KNOW

BETTER.

TRANS-FATS HAVE BECOME THE

INGREDIENT OF CHOICE FOR

MOST PROCESSED FOODS.

YOU CAN TELL SOMETHING

CONTAINS TRANS-FATS IF YOU

SEE THE WORD

"HYDROGENATED."

"HYDROGENATED" IN THE LAST

OF INGREDIENTS.

COCONUT OIL FIGHTS COLDS AND

THE FLU, AND HAS REVERSED

THE SYMPTOMS OF PARKINSON'S,

A.L.S., AND DIABETES IN SOME

PEOPLE.

YOU SHOULD REMEMBER THE

FOODS THAT MAKE YOU FAT AND

INCREASE INFLAMMATION.

ON THAT LIST, IT IS HARD TO

TOP SUGAR AND OTHER REFINED

CARBOHYDRATES: WHEAT, CORN,

RICE, AND SO ON.

WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR

HEALTH, INFLAMMATION BEATS

OUT CHOLESTEROL AS THE NEW

ENEMY.

TAKE IT ON BY SAYING YES TO

FOODS LIKE FISH, COCONUT

OIL, AND NO TO SUGAR, OTHER

CARBS, AND TRANS-FATS.

Pat: LAURIE IS HERE

WITH US.

A BRILLIANT PIECE.

HOW COULD THE SCIENTIFIC

COMMUNITY HAVE BEEN SO

WRONG?

Reporter: WELL, IT IS

BECAUSE TRANS-FATS -- I

SHOULD SAY BECAUSE

CHOLESTEROL WAS AT THE SCENE

OF THE CRIME, BUT IT WAS NOT

THE PERPETRATOR.

IT WOULD BE LIKE IF THERE

WERE A LOT OF HOUSE FIRES IN

THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND YOU SAY, THERE ARE

FIREMEN ALL OVER THE PLACE

WHEN THERE IS A HOUSE FIRE,

SO THEY MUST BE CAUSING IT.

NO, IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE.

Pat: LIPITOR HAS BEEN A

MULTI-BILLION SELLER,

BILLIONS AND BILLIONS.

Reporter: THAT'S

RIGHT.

AND NOW THEY SEE THAT, FOR

THE MOST PART, CHOLESTEROL

IS NOT THE ENEMY.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS THEY

HAVE RESEARCHED IT -- AT

FIRST THEY SAID ALL

CHOLESTEROL WAS FAT, AND

THEN THEY LOOKED AT IT A

LITTLE MORE CLOSELY AND

SAID, WAIT A SECOND.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF

CHOLESTEROL.

H.D.L., WHICH IS ACTUALLY

GOOD FOR YOU, AND OMEGA-3s

RAISE H.D.L., BUT THERE IS

THE L.D.L., WHICH IS BAD.

SO THEY SAID EAT THE FISH

OIL AND OLIVE OIL, BUT STAY

AWAY FROM THE L.D.L.

AND NOW THEY'RE FINDING OUT

THERE IS DIFFERENT KINDS OF

OF L.D.L. CHOLESTEROL, AND

SOME IS GOOD FOR YOU.

AND IT IS BASED ON PARTICLE

SIZE.

AND THE BIG, FLUFFY

PARTICLES OF L.D.L.

CHOLESTEROL, LIKE COTTON

BALLS, THOSE ARE GOOD FOR

YOU.

THOSE COME FROM EATING

SATURATED FAT, LIKE COCONUT

OIL, BUTTER, EGG YOLKS,

MEAT, AND THEY'RE SAYING

THOSE ARE ACTUALLY GOOD FOR

YOU.

Pat: STEAK?

Reporter: STEAK, BUT

GRASS-FED IS BETTER.

Pat: ATKINS USED TO BE

A REGULAR ON THIS SHOW.

HE USED TO COME HERE TO GET

FREE HAIR CUTS -- HE DID.

WHATEVER IT TAKES.

Pat: I WAS INTRIGUED BY

HIS DIET REVOLUTION, BUT HE

WAS PREACHING JUST WHAT

YOU'RE SAYING.

Reporter: RIGHT.

NOW, THERE IS ONE TYPE OF

CHOLESTEROL THAT IS BAD FOR

YOU.

IT IS A SUB-TYPE OF THE

L.D.L. CHOLESTEROL.

THE SMALL, DENSE, L.D.L.

PARTICLES, THEY'RE LIKE

BEADS, AND THOSE ARE CAUSED

BY INFLAMMATION.

AND THE TWO MAIN FOODS THAT

CAUSE INFLAMMATION ARE

TRANS-FATS AND SUGARS.

AND, PAT, IF PEOPLE

UNDERSTOOD HOW VICIOUS

TRANS-FATS ARE, THEY

WOULDN'T COME WITHIN 10 FEET

OF THEM.

BECAUSE TRANS-FATS ATTACK

OUR BODY ON THE MOST

FUNDAMENTAL LEVEL, ON THE

CELLULAR LEVEL.

BECAUSE THEY WEAKENED THE

CELL MEMBRANE, SO THAT

THINGS THAT SHOULDN'T BE

GETTING INTO OUR CELLS, LIKE

VIRUSES, ARE GETTING IN.

AND THINGS THAT SHOULDN'T BE

GETTING OUT OF OUR CELLS,

LIKE NUTRIENTS, ARE GETTING

OUT.

Pat: DR. PERRICONE WAS

HEAVY ON INFLAMMATION YEARS

AGO.

BUT THE INFLAMMATION THING

IS SOMETHING THAT YOU DON'T

REALIZE.

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

DRINKING COKES.

DRINKING PE PEPSIS.

AND THE SUGAR THAT IS THERE,

AND THE SUGAR IN SUPER POPS

AND ALL OF THIS STUFF, AND

CAKES AND PIES AND COOKIES.

Reporter: THERE YOU

GO.

AMERICANS CONSUME 156 POUNDS

OF SUGAR A YEAR.

300 YEARS AGO, IN THE YEAR

1700, PEOPLE CONSUMED

7.5 POUNDS OF SUGAR A YEAR.

OUR BODIES ARE NOT MADE TO

PROCESS THAT MUCH SUGAR.

IT IS LIKE YOU WERE SAYING,

THE SODA AND ALL OF THAT --

HALF OF THE SUGAR WE CONSUME

IS IN THE FORM OF MY

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP.

ANOTHER BIG SUGAR ARE THE

REFINED CARBOHYDRATES, THE

WHITE BREAD, THE WHITE

FLOUR.

THEY'RE JUST LIKE EATING

SUGAR TO YOUR BODY.

ONCE YOU EAT A PIECE OF

WHITE BREAD, YOUR BODY EATS

IT JUST LIKE YOU'RE EATING

TABLE SUGAR.

ALL OF THE SUGARS, AND THE

REFINED CARBOHYDRATES, THE

WHITE FOODS, CAUSE MASSIVE

INFLAMMATION.

AND THE TRANS-FATS, TOO.

MOST.

Catherine: MOST

CONCERNING ABOUT THE

TRANS-FATS IS HOW THEY

AFFECT YOUR BRAIN CELLS.

I DID A STORY ABOUT THIS

ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO, IT'S

ON OUR WEBSITE.

PEOPLE WHO ATE A LOT OF

TRANS-FATS HAD HIGHER

INCIDENTS OF ALZHEIMER'S

BECAUSE WITH THE WEAKENED

CELL MEMBRANES, CELLS IN

YOUR BRAIN CAN'T COMMUNICATE

WITH EACH OTHER, AND NOW

THEY'RE SEEING WHETHER

TRANS-FATS ARE MAYBE LINKED

TO A.D.D., ATTENTION DEFICIT

DISORDER, AND AUTISM --

AUTISM.

WE'VE SEEN AN EXPLOSION IN

THE LAST 30 YEARS OF THESE

DISEASES.

AT THE SAME TIME, WE'VE SEEN

AN EXPLOSION IN THE

CONSUMPTION OF TRANS-FATS.

THEY'RE SO UNNATURAL.

THEY'RE MADE IN A LAB.

THEY'RE FOREIGN TO OUR

BODY.

Pat: THE AMERICAN WAY

IS TO DRINK COKES, PEPSIS,

TO EAT WHITE BREAD, AND TO

EAT FRENCH FRIES COOKED IN

TRANS-FATS.

TO EAT ALL OF THESE THINGS,

AND ESPECIALLY THE HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, WHICH

IS IN EVERYTHING, IN BABY

FOODS ALL THE WAY UP THE

LINE.

SO WE'VE GOT THIS EPIDEMIC

OF OBESITY, AND PEOPLE ARE

DYING, AND OUR HEALTH COSTS

ARE GOING THROUGH THE

ROOF --

Reporter: RIGHT.

Pat: WHY DON'T YOU

THINK THE GOVERNMENT WOULD

DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?

Reporter: I THINK IT IS

BECAUSE OF THE LOBBY.

THE HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP

IS DRIVEN BY THE CORN LOBBY,

AND THAT'S A VERY POWERFUL

LOBBY.

THE SAME THING WITH THE

TRANS-FATS.

SO WE HAVE TO POLICE

OURSELVES.

THE WAY I LOOK AT IT IS WITH

ENTERTAINMENT.

LOOK AT ALL OF THE JUNK THAT

IS GIVEN TO US ON TELEVISION

AND IN MOVIES.

AND WE HAVE TO FILTER IT

OURSELVES.

WE HAVE TO POLICE

OURSELVES.

Pat: YOU TALK ABOUT THE

NANNY STATE.

I WAS HEAVY ABOUT THIS

NUTRISWEET, AND IT IS LIKE

WHITE LIGHTNING, CORN LIQUOR

AND WHATEVER.

AND DONALD RUMSFELD, WHEN HE

WAS HEAD OF ONE OF THESE

COMPANIES, HE GOT PAID A BIG

SUM TO LOBBY TO MAKE SURE

THAT THE RESULTS OF THE

TESTS HAVING TO DO WITH THE

NUTRISWEET WERE -- WELL,

THEY WERE QUIETED DOWN OR

IGNORED OR WHATEVER.

AND SO THE F.D.A. APPROVED

THESE THINGS.

THEY'RE DEADLY.

Reporter: THEY ARE

DEADLY.

THEY ARE DEADLY.

AND WE HAVE A LOT OF

INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE

ABOUT THIS.

SOME WONDERFUL READING

MATERIALS.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS RIGHT,

THIS INFLAMMATION IS CALLED

THE SILENT KILLER, BECAUSE

YOU CAN'T SEE IT AND YOU

CAN'T FEEL IT.

THE THINGS THAT CAUSE

INFLAMMATION ARE TRANS-FATS,

SUGARS, AND REFINED

CARBOHYDRATES, AND OA OMEGA

6 OILS.

BUT EAT OMEGA-3s, AND

NATURAL FATS.

A GOOD WAY TO THINK ABOUT IT

IS DID GOD MAKE IT.

THE TRANS-FATS ARE MADE IN

THE LAB, SAME WITH THE HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, AND THE

NUTRISWEEPSTAKE.

ALL O NUTRISWEET.

THEY TOOK THE REGULAR GRAIN

AND STRIPPED THE FIBER, AND

INSIDE OF OUR BODIES, IT

CAUSES A HUGE GUT OF

INSULIN.

Pat: YOU'RE PASSIONATE

ABOUT IT.

Reporter: I AM

PASSIONATE ABOUT IT.

Pat: YOU'RE FRIEND

EVERY MORNING HAS A BIG

SPOON OF FISH OIL, AND TOOX

TW TAKES TWO OF THEM,

NORWEGIAN PROCESSED OMEGA-3

EVERY MORNING.

Reporter: THAT'S WHY

YOU'RE SUCH A FAT HEAD.

THE BRAIN IS 70% FAT --

Pat: I LOAD IT UP WITH

FISH OIL.

Reporter: AND ONE OF

THE BEST THINGS YOU CAN DO

FOR YOUR BRAIN IS TAKE FISH

OIL.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 750 MILL

GRASP OF THE D.H.A.

Pat: I HAVE ABOUT 4,000

A DAY WHEN I TAKE IT.

IN ANY EVENT, IF YOU WANT TO

HAVE A BRAIN LIKE A FISH,

EAT FISH OIL.

LAURIE, YOU'RE TERRIFIC.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE'VE GOT A FACT SHEET ABOUT

ALL OF THIS.

LAURIE HAS SO MUCH

INFORMATION.

IT IS CALLED "CHOLESTEROL,

FRIEND OR FOE."

LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

THANK YOU, LAURIE.

Reporter: MY PLEASURE.

IT IS GREAT TO BE HERE.

Pat: TERRY?

Terry: BRENDA SAYS, "MY

BROSS LIES A LOT.

IT HAPPENS SO FREQUENTLY, I

NO LONGER BELIEVE ANYTHING

SHE SAYS.

SHOULD I LOOK FOR WORK

ELSEWHERE?"

WE'RE GOING TO TACKLE HER

QUESTION AND MORE.

AND YOU'LL MEET A WOMAN WHO

WAS HEALED OF CRIPPLING

ARTHRITIS IN AN INSTANT.

AND WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS.

SO STAY WITH US.

*

Terry: WELL, WE LOVE IT

WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR

QUESTIONS FOR OUR E-MAIL

"BRING IT ON SEGMENT."

AND, PAT, WE'RE GOING TO DO

SOME RIGHT NOW.

BRENDA SAYS, "MY BOSS LIES A

LOT, MOSTLY ABOUT SMALL

THINGS.

IT HAS HAPPENED SO

FREQUENTLY, I NO LONGER

BELIEVE WHAT SHE SAYS.

I LIKE MY JOB AND I'M BEING

CONSIDERED FOR A BIGGER ROLE

AND MOW PAY.

I NEED THE MONEY, BUT I

CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER IF I

SHOULD WORK WITH SOMEONE

LIKE THIS.

ESPECIALLY SINCE THE NEW

POSITION WOULD MEAN WORKING

CLOSELY WITH A CHRONIC

LIAR.

SHOULD I LOOK SOMEWHERE

ELSE?"

Pat: IF THIS LIAR

FORCES YOU TO LIE, IF YOU

CHEAT ON THE I.R.S., IF

YOU'RE FUDGING ON THE

RECEIPTS COMING INTO THE

BUSINESS, IF YOU'RE LYING TO

COSTUMERS, THEN GET OUT OF

IT.

BUT SHE IS NOT ASKING YOU TO

LIE.

SHE IS MERELY TELLING

SO-CALLED LITTLE WHITE LIES

TO PEOPLE, AND IT IS OB

OBNOXIOUS, AND IT IS HER,

AND SHE IS NOT HURTING YOU,

EXCEPT YOUR GRIEVED IN YOUR

SPIRIT.

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY, THE

BIBLE SAYS SPEAKING THE

TRUTH IN LOVE.

MAYBE IF YOU GET CLOSE

ENOUGH, YOU CAN SAY, YOU

KNOW, SUSIE -- OR WHATEVER

YOUR NAME IS -- DON'T YOU

THINK THAT EXAGGERATION IS A

LITTLE BIT OVER THE TOP?

WOULDN'T YOU BE BETTER --

Terry: IT IS

INTERESTING BECAUSE SHE

SEEMS TO KNOW THE WOMAN'S

MOTIVATION.

SHE SAYS SHE SEEMS TO DO IT

TO MAKE PEOPLE AT EASE.

Pat: WELL, SPEAKING THE

TRUTH IN LOVE.

YOU CAN SAY VERY HARSH

THINGS AND BE TRUTHFUL AND

HURT PEOPLE'S FEELINGS.

SO, ANYHOW, SHE IS NOT

MAKING YOU LIE, AND I THINK

THAT IS THE BIG THING.

IN THIS CASE, I'D STAY WITH

IT.

IF IT GETS TO BE

INTOLERABLE, YOU MAY LOOK

FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

DON'T GO BE BE A MARTYR,

LOSE YOUR JOB AND GO OUT ON

WELFARE JUST BEFORE SHE

LIES.

Terry: CATHY SAYS,

"DOESN'T THE BIBLE TALK

ABOUT DISCERNMENT?

HOW DO YOU GET THAT?

DO YOU PRAY FOR IT, OR DOES

GOD JUST GIVE IT TO CERTAIN

PEOPLE?"

Pat: DISCERNMENT MEANS

TO SEPARATE APART SOMETHING

THAT IS SEPARATED APART.

THE CLASSIC CASE OF THIS --

WE THINK SOLOMON ASKED FOR

WISDOM.

HE DOESN'T ASK FOR WISDOM.

HE SAID GIVE ME A DISCERNING

PERIOD OF HOW TO GOVERN YOUR

PEOPLE.

THE EXAMPLE IS WHEN TWO

PROSTITUTES CAME BEFORE HIM

AND CLAIMED THE CHILD, AND

THEY DIDN'T HAVE D.N.A.

TESTS IN THOSE DAYS, AND SO

HOW IS HE GOING TO TELL WHO

THE MOTHER IS.

SO HE SET UP A TEST AND

LEARNED WHO THE MOTHER WAS

BECAUS AND ALL OF ISRAEL

LEARNED OF IT.

HOW DO WE GET IT?

IT COMES OUT OF WISDOM.

IT COMES OUT OF THE

KNOWLEDGE, IT COMES OUT OF

EXPERIENCE.

THERE IS SUCH A THING AS

DISCERNING SPIRITS.

THAT IS NOT DISCERNING

DEMONS.

IT IS DISCERNING SPIRITS.

IT IS ONE THE MANIFESTATIONS

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHERE

YOU CAN TELL WHICH SPIRIT

YOU'RE DEALING WITH.

THE MAIN THING YOU'RE ASKING

IS HOW DO YOU GET

DISCERNMENT.

I THINK YOU PRAY, JUST LIKE

SOLOMON DID, AND SAY, GOD,

GIVE ME A DISCERNING

SPIRIT.

Terry: STEVE SAYS, "OUR

LIFE INSURANCE AND HEALTH

INSURANCE PREMIUMS PROPER

USES OF THE CHRISTIAN'S

MONEY?"

Pat: THEY DEFINITELY

ARE.

THERE IS A STORY BACK IN THE

19th CENTURY OF ONE OF

GREAT SAINTS OF GOD WHO

BELIEVED IN HEALING.

SO HE DIDN'T HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE FOR HIMSELF,

BECAUSE HE DIDN'T NEED IT.

BUT HE HAD A FRIEND WHO

DIDN'T HAVE AS MUCH FAITH,

AND HE ACTUALLY BOUGHT THE

PREMIUMS FOR THAT FRIEND SO

HE OR SHE COULD HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

INSURANCE.

WE DO HAVE DISASTERS IN

LIFE.

WE HAVE FIRES, WE HAVE

FLOOD, WE HAVE AUTOMOBILE

ACCIDENTS.

AS FAR AS LIFE, YOU OUGHT TO

LOOK AFTER YOUR FAMILY.

IF IT'S A MAN, YOU'RE WIFE

AND FAMILY.

AND I SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH

HAVING LIFE INSURANCE.

ALTHOUGH SOME PEOPLE OVERDUE

IT.

THEY HAVE HUGE POLICIES THEY

DON'T NEED.

AND THERE COMES A TIME IN

YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU'RE

CHILDREN ARE GROWN AND

YOU'VE GOT ENOUGH ASSETS ON

THE SIDE TO TAKE CARE OF

YOUR SPOUSE IF YOU DIE.

AT THAT POINT, I RECOMMEND

CANCELLING.

TO SAY THE LEAST, I'M NOT A

GREAT FAN OF WHOLE LIFE.

I THINK THE IDEA OF TERM

LIFE ALONG WITH INVESTMENTS

IS A BETTER WAY TO GO.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS IS MELODY, PAT, WHO

SAYS, "HOW DO I KNOW THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOD

SPEAKING TO ME AND MY INNER

VOICE TELLING ME WHAT I WANT

TO HEAR?"

Pat: WELL, THE BOOK OF

HEBREWS TELLS US THAT

THROUGH USE -- THROUGH USE

WE ARE ABLE TO DISCERN GOOD

FROM EVIL.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR

WALKING WITH GOD, LISTENING

TO THE VOICE OF GOD, AND

READING THE BIBLE.

I THINK IF YOU ARE GROUNDED

IN THE BIBLE, IN THE TRUTH

OF THE BIBLE, NOT SOME

SYSTEM THAT SOMEBODY HAS

IMPOSED OF YOU, BUT WHAT THE

ACTUAL BIBLE SAYS.

IF YOU'RE GROUNDED IN THAT,

THEN YOU WILL KNOW WHAT'S

GOOD AND WHAT'S BAD.

BUT THE IDEA IS THROUGH

REASON OF USE, YOU PRACTICE

THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

AND LITTLE BY LITTLE YOU CAN

TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

WHAT YOU ARE SAYING TO YOURS

AND WHAT GOD IS SAYING.

SOMETIMES WE THINK WE'RE

LISTENING TO GOD, AND WE'RE

LISTENING TO OURSELVES.

YOU KNOW, IT IS ONE OF THOSE

THINGS.

IT IS PART OF MATURITY, BUT

SOMETIMES THAT MATURITY

NEVER COMES.

I DON'T CARE HOW LONG YOU

WALK WITH THE LORD, YOU CAN

BE MISLED.

Terry: WE THANK YOU ALL

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS, AND FOR

YOUR ANSWERS, PAT.

WE WANT TO MOVE ON WITH

THIS: MORE THAN 20 MILLION

AMERICANS WITH ARTHRITIS

SUFFER PAIN ON A DAILY

BASIS.

AMALIA HUBB USED TO BE ONE

OF THEM, BUT SHE ISN'T ANY

LONGER BECAUSE SHE WAS

HEALED IN AN INSTANT.

Reporter: EVERY DAY

AMALIA HUBB WOKE UP TO

CRIPPLING PAIN IN HER HIPS.

GETTING UP FROM BED IN

THE MORNING, IT WAS ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE.

OR WHEN I SIT FOR TOO LONG

ON THE CHAIR, I HAVE TO GET

UP SLOWLY AND WAIT A FEW

MINUTES TO BE ABLE TO WALK.

THEY SENT ME TO A SPECIALIST

BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT I HAD

RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.

BUT THEY CHECKED ME, AND

THEY SAID YOU HAVE VERY BAD

ARTHRITIS OF THE HIPS.

AND I DON'T GIVE YOUR HELPS

MORE THAN A YEAR OF LIFE.

Reporter: HE ALSO TOLD

HER HIP REPLACEMENT SURGERY

WAS INEVITABLE.

SHE TRIED HER BEST TO GO ON

WITH HER LIFE.

SHE TOOK MEDICATION TO NUMB

HER ACHES.

I COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT

THOSE PILLS.

I USED TO TAKE TWO,

SOMETIMES THREE,

PAINKILLERS.

Reporter: THE PAIN

PERSISTED, AND YET SHE HELD

DOWN HER JOB AT A

RESTAURANT.

SOMETIMES AT WORK, I HAD

TO START WALKING SLOWLY AND

HELD MYSELF FROM THE COUNTER

OR THE CHAIRS THAT ARE THERE

WITHOUT PEOPLE NOTICING, OR

SIT DOWN BECAUSE I THOUGHT I

WOULD JUST FALL DOWN FROM

THE PAIN.

Reporter: AFTER WORK,

SHE HAD TO CONQUER THE

STAIRS IN HER SECOND-STORY

APARTMENT.

IT WAS JUST HORRIBLE.

ONE STEP, WAIT.

ANOTHER STEP, WAIT.

IT WAS REALLY HARD TO GET UP

THOSE STEPS.

AND THERE IS NO ELEVATORS

HERE.

Reporter: ONE MORNING

AMALIA WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

PAT ROBERTSON WAS PRAYING

FOR PEOPLE TO BE HEALED.

PAT SAYS, SOMEBODY WITH

ARTHRITIS, YOU ARE HEALED.

AND I JUST JUMPED, AND I

SAID I RECEIVE THAT.

THAT'S FOR ME!

THAT'S FOR ME!

AND I FELT IT COMING ALL THE

WAY FROM MY FEET DOWN, UP,

UP, UP, UNTIL UP HERE.

AND GOOSE PIMPLES, AND I

STARTED SCREAMING, CRYING.

NO MORE PAIN SINCE THEN.

NO PAIN AT ALL.

NO MORE PILLS.

I CAN SHOW YOU THE

CONTAINER.

IT IS FULL OF PILLS AND THE

DATE.

I HAVEN'T USED THEM.

I DON'T HAVE TO.

I'M HEALED.

IT'S NOT JUST -- PEOPLE

THINK IT IS A COINCIDENCE

THAT IT JUST HAPPENED.

BUT, NO.

IT'S FROM THE LORD.

THE LORD HAS BEEN SO GOOD TO

ME.

SO GOOD.

EVERY TIME I HAD ANY KIND OF

TROUBLE, ALWAYS THE LORD WAS

THERE FOR ME, ALWAYS.

Terry: DEAR ONES, IT IS

NOT COINCIDENCE.

IT IS THE LORD.

AND WHAT HAPPENED TO AMALIA,

CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

WE WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

AND THIS IS MARGARITA OF

MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA, AND SHE

HAD A HERNIA IN HER

ABDOMEN.

SHE SAID SHE HAD SURGERY TO

CORRECT THE CONDITION, BUT

HER PROBLEM DIDN'T GO AWAY.

HER STOMACH GOT SO HUGE, SHE

HAD TO WEAR LARGE SHIRTS BIG

ENOUGH TO COVER HER BODY.

AND SHE HAD PAIN IN THE AREA

OF HER BELLY BUTTON.

ON JANUARY 10th, SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM AND

YOU GAVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

ABOUT A HERNIA.

YOU SAID THIS "FLESH AND

TENDONS ARE GROWING SO YOU

WON'T HAVE THAT HERNIA NAME

ANYMORE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS."

SHE PLACED HER HAND ON HER

STOMACH AND FELT IT GET

HOT.

AND THE SWELLING IN HER

ABDOMEN WANT DOWN AND SHE

HASN'T ANY PROBLEM SINCE

THEN.

NOT COINCIDENCE.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT THE FULLNESS

OF GOD IS -- ALL WE KNOW IS

WHAT THE BIBLE TELLS US AND

WHAT JESUS DID AND WHAT THE

APOSTLES DID WHEN THEY WERE

HEAR.

WE KNOW GOD DOES MIRACLES

TODAY BECAUSE WE HAVE SEEN

MANY, MANY, MANY THOUSANDS

OF THEM.

RIGHT NOW GOD WANTS TO TOUCH

YOU.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOD WANTS

TO TOUCH YOU.

SAY THESE ARE SPECIAL PEOPLE

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

YEAH, THEY'RE SPECIAL, BUT

YOU'RE SPECIAL, TOO.

WE'RE ALL SPECIAL IN GOD'S

SIGHT.

SO TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS.

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD.

YOU PRAY WITH US.

FATHER, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR THESE

TESTIMONIES OF MIRACLES OF

WHAT YOU HAVE DONE,

RESTORING PEOPLE'S BODIES,

THEIR MINDS AND THEIR

SPIRITS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

AND RIGHT NOW, I BELIEVE GOD

WANTS TO DO A FINANCIAL

MIRACLE IN PEOPLE'S LIVES.

THERE ARE MANY OF YOU WHO

ARE HURTING FINANCIALLY.

YOU'RE REALLY STRUGGLING,

AND AT THIS POINT, I WANT

YOU TO LOOK UP TO THE LORD

AND SAY I RECEIVE IT IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

HE IS GOING TO SUPPLY YOUR

FINANCIAL NEEDS, WHOEVER YOU

ARE AND WHATEVER OF YOU'VE

GOT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: ONE OF THE

PEOPLE THAT IS GOING TO BE

SUPPLIED.

YOU'RE A YOUNG WOMAN, YOU'RE

A SINGLE MOM WITH A CHILD,

AND YOU ARE IN A DESPERATE

SITUATION.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR CRY.

HE SEES YOU, HE KNOWS YOU,

AND AN ANSWER IS COMING TO

CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE AN

ISSUE WERE YOU YOUR TEETH.

YOU HAVE NO INSURANCE AND NO

WAY OF COVERING IT.

GOT IS GOING TO HEAL THAT

SITUATION FOR YOU RIGHT NOW

AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO NEED

THAT DENTAL WORK.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS A

LESION IN YOUR LUNG.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WERE

OVERSEAS SOME PLACE AND YOU

GOT SOME SORT OF A VIRUS,

BUT SOMETHING AFFECTED YOUR

LUNG.

GOD IS REACHING IN AND

YOU'LL FEEL A BURNING IN

YOUR CHEST, AND THAT THING

IS HEALED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

LORD, LET THE ANOINTING OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT REST UPON

THEM, FILL THEM WITH YOUR

POWER, AND TOUCH THEM IN

JESUS' NAME.

HEY, LISTEN, CALL US.

LET US NO WHAT GOD IS

DOING.

LIFT YOUR HANDS AND THANK

THE LORD, THANK HIM FOR

ANSWERS, AND BEGIN TO EXPECT

MIRACLES.

Terry: MEET THE MAN WHO

TURNED SHAQUILLE O'NEAL AND

CHARLES BARCLAY INTO STARS.

HE JOINS US TO TALK ABOUT

THE DIFFERENCE YOU CAN

MAKE.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS REVERSED

COURSE AND OFFERED A

COMPROMISE ON THE

CONTRACEPTION MANDATE IN

OBAMACARE.

SEVERAL RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS CHALLENGED THE

MANDATE IN COURT.

THEY SAY IT FORCES RELIGIOUS

EMPLOYERS TO VIOLATE THEIR

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS BY MAKING

THEM PAY FOR CONTRACEPTIONS

AND EVEN ABORTION INDUCING

DRUGS.

UNDER THE NEW PLAN, FEMALE

EMPLOYEES IN RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS COULD STILL

GET FREE BIRTH CONTROL, BUT

EMPLOYERS WOULD NOT HAVE TO

PAY FOR IT.

INSTEAD, THEY COULD GET A

CREDIT FROM THE GOVERNMENT.

THE COMPROMISE DOES NOT

INCLUDE BUSINESSES OWNED BY

RELIGIOUS EMPLOYERS, LIKE

HOBBY LOBBY.

THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF

CATHOLIC BISHOPS IS STUDYING

THE PLAN.

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF

EVANGELICALS REJECTED IT.

CBN IS HELPING TO PROVIDE

FRESH WATER TO PEOPLE IN

INDIA.

LAST YEAR ALONE, CLOSE TO

400 NEW WELLS WERE DUG IN

INDIA, TYPICALLY IN THE MOST

POOREST AREAS OF THAT

COUNTRY.

CBN HAS BEEN ABLE TO OFFER

CLEAN WATER TO MORE THAN

170,000 PEOPLE LIVING IN

INDIA.

THE PROGRAM OFTEN PARTNERS

WITH LOCAL PASTORS THERE,

PROVIDING THEM WITH

OPPORTUNITIES TO MINISTER

AND E EVANGELIZE THROUGH

THOSE STUDENTS.

STAY TUNED, MORE OF THE "700

CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Terry: IN 1996, PAT

WILLIAM WAS NAMED ONE OF THE

50 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE

IN NBA HISTORY.

AND LAST YEAR, PAT WAS

INDUCTED INTO THE BASKETBALL

HALL OF FAME.

HIS ACCOLADES ARE A RESULT

OF A LIFETIME OF POSITIVE

INFLUENCE ON THE SPORT, THE

PLAYERS, AND THE COACHES.

TAKE A LOOK.

OVER THE YEARS, PAT

WILLIAM HAS PLAYED AN

IMPORTANT PART OF NBA

HISTORY.

AS THE GENERAL MANAGER FOR

SEVERAL TEAMS, HE WAS ABLE

TO ATTRACT THE MOST TALENTED

PLAYERS, LIKE DR. "J," MOSES

MALONE, AND SHAQUILLE

O'NEAL.

FIVE OF HIS TEAMS MADE IT TO

THE NBA CHAMPIONS.

PAT IS CURRENTLY THE SENIOR

VICE PRESIDENT OF THE

NBA's ORLANDO MAGIC.

AND HE IS A POPULAR SPEAKER,

AND THE AUTHOR OF OVER 75

BOOKS.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB," OUR

DEAR FRIEND, PAT WILLIAM.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU BACK

HERE.

I'M HAPPY TO BE HERE.

IT IS ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE

YOU AND PAT AND THANKS FOR

THE INVITE.

Terry: WE'VE GOT LOTS

TO TALK ABOUT.

SO LET'S GET INTO IT.

LAST YEAR, A BIG, BIG DEAL,

INDUCTED INTO THE BASKETBALL

HALL OF FAME.

AT THE SAME TIME, YOU WENT

THROUGH A STEM CELL

TRANSPLANT?

YES.

I WAS DIAGNOSED TWO YEARS

AGO, TERRY, WITH A FORM OF

CANCER CALLED MYELOMA, AND

IT IS A BLOOD CANCER.

IT CAME OUT OF NOWHERE.

IT CAME FROM MY PHYSICAL,

AND THERE WAS SOMETHING NOT

RIGHT.

SO FOR THE PAST 24 MONTHS,

I'VE BEEN DOING THE CHEMO

AND HAD A STEM CELL

TRACTOR-TRAILE TRANSPLANT,

AND I'M FEELING GOOD.

THERE IS NEW MEDICATION ALL

THE TIME AND I'M A GUINEA

PIG.

I HAVE LEARNED WITH THIS

CANCER BATTLE TO KEEP GOING,

KEEP LIVING YOUR LIFE.

Terry: AND THAT'S WHAT

YOU'VE DONE.

AND NOT FADE.

Terry: YOU HAVE --

WELL, FIRST OF ALL, YOU'RE A

PROLIFIC AUTHOR.

AND IN THE MIDST OF ALL

YOU'VE BEEN GOING THROUGH,

YOU'VE WRITTEN A NEW BOOK

CALLED "THE DIFFERENCE YOU

MAKE."

APPROPRIATE THAT YOU WOULD

WRITE THAT AT THIS TIME IN

YOUR LIFE.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED,

TERRY.

WE MADE AN ANNOUNCEMENT

ABOUT THIS PUBLICLY ABOUT

TWO YEARS AGO.

AND I WAS FLOODED WITH

E-MAILS AND CARDS AND CALLS

AND LETTERS.

MANY OF THEM FROM PEOPLE IN

MY DISTANT PAST.

AND THEY SHARED WITH ME A

LITTLE STORY, SOMETHING I

HAD SAID OR DONE.

I'VE GOT TO BE FRANK, I

DON'T REMEMBER MOST OF THEM,

BUT THESE PEOPLE DID.

AND IT REALLY HIT ME.

WAS I HAVING THAT KIND OF

INFLUENCE THROUGH MY WORDS

AND MY ACTIONS, THAT THESE

PEOPLE WOULD WRITE ME WHEN I

WAS STILL ALIVE.

NORMALLY THEY WOULD GO TO

THE WIDOW AND YOU NEVER GET

TO SEE THEM.

BUT I GOT TO SEE THEM AS A

PERSON STILL HANGING IN

THERE.

SO IT REALLY HIT ME THAT WE

NEED TO BE DELIBERATE IN OUR

INFLUENCE.

AS PARENTS, AS SPOUSES, IN

THE WORKFORCE, COACHING,

YOUTH SPORTS -- EVERY WORD

WE SAY.

EVERY ACTION WE TAKE IS

LEAVING AN IN PRINT.

Terry: YOU CALL IT

LIVING WITH INTENT, OR

INTENTIONAL LIVING.

WE WOULD ALL DO IT IF WE

FELT LIKE THERE WAS GOING TO

BE A TIME LIMIT TO HOW LONG

WE WOULD LIVE, BUT WE DON'T

THINK LIKE THAT.

BUT IT IS A REALITY FOR ALL

OF US.

I THINK, TERRY, THAT HAS

BEEN A WAKEUP CALL FOR ME.

EVERY WORD I'M SAYING AND

EVERYTHING I'M DOING,

WHETHER IT IS SPEAKING TO

THE CAB DRIVER OR, YOU KNOW,

AN EVENT WITH YOUR

CHILDREN'S TEACHERS OR

YOU'RE A LITTLE LEAGUE

COACH -- NONE OF THAT IS

FORGOTTEN.

50 YEARS LATER, THESE PEOPLE

ARE GOING TO REMEMBER WHAT

YOU SAID AND DID.

Terry: IT IS A LEGACY,

ISN'T IT, A PERSONAL LEGACY

THAT WE LEAVE.

THAT'S A BIG PART OF IT,

TERRY.

AND WE ALL LEAVE A LEGACY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A SUPER

BOWL HERO.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A

HOLLYWOOD STARLET OR A GREAT

POLITICAL FIGURE TO HAVE

INFLUENCE.

WE ALL HAVE IT IN OUR OWN

WORLD.

WE'VE GOT TO BE ALERT TO

IT.

WE'VE GOT TO BE AWARE OF

IT.

WE MAY HAVE TO REDO SOME

THINGS IN OUR LIFE, BUT THAT

INFLUENCE, TERRY, AND THAT

LEGACY WE LEAVE, BOY, WE

WANT IT TO BE A GOOD ONE FOR

THE LORD.

Terry: YOU SAY THIS

CANCER THAT YOU'VE

EXPERIENCED AND YOU'RE NOW

IN THE TREATMENT OF HAS

ACTUALLY BEEN A BLESSING IN

YOUR LIFE.

HOW DO YOU MEAN?

I FELT I WAS CALLED,

TERRY, TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE

WITH CANCER.

BELIEVE ME, I WOULD NOT HAVE

SELECTED THIS.

I WAS GOING TO RUN MARATHONS

UNTIL I WAS A HUNDRED, AND

PLAY BASEBALL WITH THE

OLD-TIMERS UNTIL I COULDN'T

WALK AGAIN.

AND WOW, WITH A YEARLY

PHYSICAL, I SUDDENLY HAD MY

LIFE CHANGE DRAMATICALLY.

AND I FELT CALLED TO THIS

CANCER BATTLE.

EVERY FAMILY IN AMERICA,

TERRY, I'M CONVINCED HAS

SOME CANCER ISSUE GOING ON.

ONE OUT OF TWO MEN IN

AMERICA WILL END UP WITH

CANCER.

ONE OUT OF THREE WOMEN.

SOMEBODY DIES OF CANCER

EVERY FOUR MINUTES IN OUR

COUNTRY.

SO I FELT CALLED BY THE LORD

TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE, TO TALK

TO THEM OVER THE PHONE.

TO SPEAK TO THEIR GROUPS.

TO HELP BE A FUNDRAISER IN

THIS AREA OF CANCER

RESEARCH.

Terry: YOU DO IT JUST

BY WALKING YOUR WALK, THE

WAY YOU'RE WALKING IT.

AND TO LET PEOPLE SEE

THAT CANCER DOES NOT HAVE TO

DRIVE YOU FROM YOUR LIFE.

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE SOME

DAYS I DON'T FEEL SUPER

GREAT, BUT YOU JUST KEEP

GOING.

THE DOCTORS HAVE SAID TO ME,

GO LIVE YOUR LIFE.

WE'LL TALK THE MEDICAL STUFF

AROUND IT.

AND THAT WAS GOOD COUNSEL.

Terry: YOU WERE PRETTY

MUCH DOING THAT ANYWAY.

WELL, I HAVE JUST HAD A

GOOD SENSE THEY'LL ADJUST MY

CHEMO SCHEDULE AND WORK WITH

ME.

Terry: THAT'S GREAT

THEY WORK WITH YOU ON THAT.

IT IS GOOD STRATEGY,

TERRY.

THEY DON'T WANT PEOPLE

SITTING AND MOPING AND

FOAMENTING OVER NOTHING BUT

CANCER AND THEIR LIFE JUST

STOPS.

I'M ABLE TO DO EVERYTHING,

BUT I CAN'T RUN 26 MILES

ANYMORE.

Terry: THAT'S OKAY.

THAT'S OKAY.

Terry: SOMEONE THAT

SPORTS REPORTER ERIN

ANDERSON SAID IMPACTED YOU.

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, I

WAS AT PALS CANCER

FUNDRAISER IN SARASOTA, AND

SHE WAS INTRODUCING PEOPLE

IN THE AUDIENCE TO COME UP

ON THE STAGE.

AND SHE INTRODUCED ME, AND

SAID PAT HAS BEEN BATTLING

CANCER HERE OF LATE.

WE ALL ARE PRAYING FOR HIM

AND WE WANT TO WISH HIM

WELL -- THAT WAS THE GIST OF

IT.

AFTER THE DINNER, I WENT UP

TO ERIN ANDREWS, WHOM I'VE

ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF, AND I

SAID THANK YOU, ERIN.

AND SHE GAVE ME A BIG HUG

AND WISHED ME WELL AND SAID

SHE WAS PRAYING FOR ME.

BUT, TERRY, IT LEFT A DEEP

IMPRINT ON ME.

I'M SOLD ENOUG OLD ENOUGH

TO BE HER GRANDFATHER.

BUT SHE TOOK A FEW MINUTES

TO SAY SOME KIND WORDS TO

ME.

AND THEY LEFT AN IMPRINT ON

ME.

SHE PROBABLY DOESN'T EVEN

REMEMBER IT.

BUT SHE GAVE ME A BIG LIFT

AND ENCOURAGED ME WITH A FEW

WORDS.

IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH.

A FEW WORDS.

RICH, THE OWNER OF OUR TEAM,

THE CO-FOUNDER OF AMWAY, HE

IS A NOTE WRITER.

HE SENDS THESE LITTLE

HANDWRITTEN NOTES, AND HE

ALWAYS SIGNS THEM THE SAME,

"PROUD OF YOU RICH," OR

"LOVE YOU, RICH."

ISN'T THAT SOMETHING?

Terry: IT IS

SOMETHING.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT

MATTERS.

"THE DIFFERENCE YOU MAKE" IS

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS ARE

SOLD AROUND THE COUNTRY.

REALLY LIVING INTENTIONALLY

IS SOMETHING WE NODE TO DO.

NEED TO DO.

THIS BOOK WILL ENCOURAGE YOU

WITH HOW TO DO THAT.

TERRY, I'M SO PLEASED TO

SEE YOU.

BYE-BYE.

Pat: A GREAT MAN.

PAT WILLIAMS, A WONDERFUL

PERSON.

MARIA VESA COMMITTED TO

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN

OTHERS AROUND THE WORLD.

AND SHE HAS NEVER STOPPED.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MARIA VESA

CAME TO AMERICA OVER 30

YEARS AGO, AND QUICKLY

DISCOVERED "THE 700 CLUB."

SO SHE BECAME A CBN

PARTNER.

WE NEED FOR PEOPLE TO

PROVIDE FOR THE ONE THAT

CANNOT PROVIDE FOR

THEMSELF.

AND WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GIVE,

EVEN IF WE CANNOT GIVE

MUCH.

Reporter: SHE

ESPECIALLY ENJOYS WHEN "THE

700 CLUB" HOSTS PRAY FOR THE

VIEWERS.

I JUST REALLY LOVE IT

BECAUSE I KNOW SOMEBODY IN

SOME PLACE IS GOING TO BE SO

HAPPY, AND THEY'RE GOING TO

BE FREE OF PAIN.

Reporter: MARIA ALSO

LOVES SEEING HOW "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS STILL HELPING

PEOPLE AFFECTED BY HURRICANE

SANDY.

IT IS SO AMAZING.

IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE BEING

PART OF THAT IS A GREAT WORK

THAT I EVER COULD DO.

I NEVER COULD DO THAT FOR

THE LORD IF IT WEREN'T FOR

"THE 700 CLUB."

Pat: WE APPRECIATE

MARIA AND MANY, MANY

THOUSANDS LIKE HER.

GOD BLESS HER.

BY THE WAY, IF YOU WANT TO

PARTICIPATE IN THE WORK WE

DO TO HELP PEOPLE AROUND THE

WORLD, IT'S CALLED ""LIFE

BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART TWO,"

AND WE'RE GOING TO GIVE THIS

TO YOU.

FABULOUS D.V.D.s OF PEOPLE

WHO HAVE DIED AND COME

BACK.

TOMORROW, BY THE WAY,

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR,

TALK ABOUT THE HARBINGER,

BLOCKBUSTER BOOK HE WROTE.

PSALMS: "HE SHALL GIVE HIS

ANGELS CHARGE OVER YOU, TO

KEEP YOU IN ALL YOUR WAYS."

HE'LL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE

OVER YOU.

PSALM 91.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

FOR PAT WILLIAMS AND TERRY

AND LEE AND ALL OF US, THIS
