The 700 Club - February 8, 2013

An innocent taste of alcohol as a teenager ushered Steve into a lifestyle of addiction that nearly cost him everything. Plus, Bonita's diagnosis of acid reflux was discouraging to her, but it was no match for what God was about to do. Read Transcript


ONE MORE BEER.

ONE MORE GLASS OF WINE.

Lee: A FATHER WHO'S

FAMILY CAME SECOND.

I WOULD PUT OFF GOING UP

TO TUCK MY DAUGHTER IN

BECAUSE I WANTED TO FINISH

THE DRINK I WAS HAVING.

Lee: GETS PUT IN HIS

PLACE.

IT JUST HIT ME, I AM NO

BETTER THAN ANYBODY ELSE WHO

IS IN THIS PLACE.

Lee: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

IF YOU LIVE IN

MASSACHUSETTS, STAY OFF THE

ROADS.

IF YOUR IN LONG ISLAND, STAY

OFF THE ROADS.

DON'T TRAVEL, STAY HOME,

BUILD A FIRE, DO WHATEVER

YOU DO AND WATCH TV OR READ

A BOOK.

Terry: I WAS GOING SO

SAY, A GREAT DAY TO READ A

GOOD BOOK.

Pat: HISTORIC SNOWS.

WE'LL TELL YOU MORE ABOUT

IT.

THE NORTHEAST IS LOCKED AND

AN HISTORIC NOR'EASTER.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

IN ANY EVENT, THIS IS ONE

MORE SIGN OF GLOBAL

WARMING.

YOU CAN FEEL THE HEAT AS

YOU'RE UNDER TWO FEET OF

SNOW.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: TERRY, THERE ARE

ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE NOW

TARGETING CHRISTIAN GROUPS

AND TRYING TO SHUT THEM UP.

THEY DON'T WANT FREE

SPEECH.

THEY DON'T WANT THE BIBLE.

THEY DON'T WANT TRADITIONAL

MORALITY.

THIS WAS A GUNMAN WHO WANTED

TO KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS

POSSIBLE IN A CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATION.

WHY?

BECAUSE THEY WERE OPPOSED TO

THE MARRIAGE OF

HOMOSEXUALS.

AND SOMEBODY ALONG THE WAY

SAID THAT REPRESENTED A HATE

GROUP.

Terry: CORKINS PLED

GUILTY TO HIS ATTACK ON THE

FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL LAST

AUGUST.

HE RELEASED SOME DISTURBING

DETAILS ABOUT WHY HE DID

IT.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IN HIS

FEDERAL COURT APPEARANCE ON

WEDNESDAY, FLOYD CORKINS

ENTERED GUILTY PLEAS AND

REVEALED MORE.

HE PLEADED GUILTY TO THREE

CHARGES: INTERSTATE

TRANSPORTATION OF A FIREARM

AND AMMUNITION, ASSAULT WITH

AN INTENT TO KILL WHILE

ARMED, AND ACT OF TERRORISM

WHILE ARMED.

HE ADMITTED HE INTENDED TO

KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS

POSSIBLE, AND THEN SMEAR

CHICK-FIL-A SANDWICHES.

CHICK-FIL-A AT THE TIME WAS

IN THE NEWS BECAUSE ITS

PRESIDENT OPPOSED SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

HE TARGETED THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL FOR ITS

STANCE ON GAY RIGHTS.

HE FOUND THE F.R.C. AND

OTHERS LABELLED AS HATE

GROUPS ON THE WEBSITE.

THE F.B.L.C. COUNTS MORE

THAN 900 ACTIVE HATE GROUPS

IN THE UNITED STATES.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE

SHOOTING IN AUGUST, F.R.C.

PRESIDENT, TONY PERKINS,

SAYS THE F.B.L.C. SHARES

SOME OF THE BLAME.

CORKINS WAS GIVEN A

LICENSE TO SHOOT AN UNARMED

MAN BY ORGANIZATIONS THAT

HAVE BEEN RECKLESS IN

LABELLING GROUPS BECAUSE

THEY DISAGREED WITH THEM ON

POLICY.

Reporter: IT IS LISTED

AS A HATE GROUP BECAUSE IT

HAS KNOWINGLY SPREAD FALSE

PROPAGANDA ABOUT L.B.G.C.

PEOPLE.

CORKINS ADMITTED HE USED THE

WEBSITE, PERKINS SAY THE

SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER

CANNOT SAY IT NOT A SOURCE

FOR THOSE BENT ON COMMITTING

ACTS OF VIOLENCE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WITH US NOW IS ONE

OF THE MOST DECORATED

SOLDIERS WHO GRACE OR

MILITARY, TRAINED AT DELTA

FORCE.

A TREMENDOUS MAN.

AND HE IS EXECUTIVE VICE

PRESIDENT OF THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL.

JERRY MORGAN.

GENERAL, IT IS GOOD TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

IT IS GOOD TO BE WITH

YOU, PAT.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: HOW DID YOU START

WITH THE F.R.C.?

WHAT BROUGHT THIS ON?

I SPENT MY ENTIRE ADULT

LIFE WITH WARRIORS.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

AND I LOOKED AT WHAT THE

FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL WAS

DOING, AND I LOOKED AT TONY

PERKINS' LEADERSHIP, AND I

DETERMINED THE BEST WAY FOR

ME TO TRANSITION INTO THE

CIVILIAN WORLD AND STAY WITH

WARRIORS ON THE FRONT LINE

WAS TO GO TO THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL.

Pat: I KNOW THEY'RE

FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOU.

WHAT IS THIS WHOLE HATE

SPEECH THING?

ARE THEY REALLY LABELLING

THE FAMILY RESEARCH CENTER

AS A HATE GROUP?

THEY HAVE LABELLED US A

HATE GROUP BECAUSE WE HAVE

STOOD ON TRADITIONAL

CHRISTIAN VALUES, THE VALUES

THAT AMERICA WAS FOUNDED

ON.

WE HAVE STOOD FOR

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

WE HAVE NOT GONE AFTER

HOMOSEXUALS.

WE HAVEN'T MADE A BIG ISSUE

OF TRYING TO CONDEMN

HOMOSEXUALS.

WE'VE TRIED TO SUPPORT

FAMILY ISSUES, PAT.

AND PART OF THAT BEING THE

TRADITIONAL AMERICAN

FAMILY.

AND THAT'S BASED ON OUR

RESEARCH THAT SHOWS THAT THE

FAMILY IS VERY CRITICAL TO

THE HEALTH OF THE SOCIETY.

Pat: TELL ME ABOUT THIS

CRAZY GUNMAN.

WAS HE REALLY THAT MUCH

INFLUENCED BY THE PROPAGANDA

THAT HAD BEEN SPEWED OUT, OR

WAS THERE SOMETHING WRONG

WITH HIM ASIDE FROM THAT?

THERE IS CLEARLY

SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIM.

BUT HE ADMITTED TWO DAYS AGO

TO THE JUDGE HE FOUND ON THE

SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER

A LIST OF HATE GROUPS.

AND HE WAS MOTIVATED BY THAT

TO GO AFTER US AND THREE

OTHER GROUPS.

HE ADMITTED IF HE WAS

SUCCESSFUL AT KILLING A

LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE AT OUR

PLACE, HE WAS GOING TO THREE

OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.

THEY ALL CAME OFF THE

SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER

WEBSITE.

Pat: WHO ELSE DID HE GO

AFTER?

THE F.B.I. HASN'T TOLD US

THAT.

THEY DIDN'T GIVE US THE

OTHER ORGANIZATIONS.

BUT THEY'RE LIKE US.

THEY'RE CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATIONS.

THEY STAND ON TRADITIONAL

AMERICAN VALUES.

Pat: DID HE COME INTO

YOUR LOBBY AND OPEN FIRE

WITH AN AUTOMATIC WEAPON?

HE WALKED IN ON THE

15th OF AUGUST AND SET HIS

BACKPACK DOWN.

WHEN HE DID, OUR BUILDING

MANAGER GOT UP TO SEE WHAT

HE WAS GETTING OUT OF HIS

BACKPACK, AND HE CAME OUT

WITH A .9-MILLIMETER GLOCK,

AND SHOT OUR MANAGER, WHO

THEN INCREDIBLY WRESTLED HIM

TO THE GROUND AND TOOK HIS

PISTOL AWAY FROM HIM, AND

STARTED TO SHOOT HIM, AND

GOD TOLD HIM NOT TO KILL THE

GUY.

BUT HE HAD 15 CRI 15

CHICK-FIL-A AND SWAICHES AND

SAND WAIFNSANDWICHES IN HIS

BACKPACK, AND HE WAS GOING

TO KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS

POSSIBLE, AND SMEAR THE

SANDWICHES IN THEIR FACES,

AND MOVE AND ON TO THE NEXT

FACILITY.

THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED DAVID

BARTON, A HISTORIAN, AS A

HATE MONGER.

IT IS CLEAR THEY ARE

INCITING PEOPLE TO VIOLENCE,

AND THEY HAVE NO AUTHORITY

TO DO THIS.

THEY ARE NOT AN OFFICIAL

GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION THAT

CAN DETERMINE WE'RE A HATE

GROUP.

Pat: ARE THEY FUNDED BY

THE GOVERNMENT?

THEY HAVE A VERY CLOSE

ADMINISTRATION BY THE

CURRENT ADMINISTRATION.

THEY HAVE BEEN PRAISED

REPEATEDLY BY THIS

ADMINISTRATION.

THEY TRAIN LAW ENFORCEMENT

OFFICERS, AND THEY'RE IN OUR

SCHOOLS, TEACHING TOLERANCE

TO OUR SCHOOL CHILDREN IN

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL.

SO THERE IS A CLOSE

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

GOVERNMENT.

Pat: THEY OBVIOUSLY

WANT TO SILENCE CHRISTIAN

SPEECH.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THEY

ARE TRYING TO DO.

THIS SHOULD BE A LESSON TO

EVERY CHRISTIAN IN THIS

COUNTRY.

THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN MORE

AND MORE UNLESS CHRISTIANS

AND CONCERNED AMERICANS RISE

UP.

WHAT THEY CAN DO IS CALL

THEIR CONGRESSMAN AND THEIR

ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND

LET THEM KNOW THAT WE WANT

THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW

CENTER STOPPED.

THIS LABELLING OF HATE

GROUPS IS JUST RECKLESS.

IT'S IRRESPONSIBLE, AND THEY

NEED TO LET THEIR

REPRESENTATIVES KNOW.

Pat: IT SOUNDS SO GOOD,

SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW

CENTER.

I MEAN, YOU THINK, ISN'T

THAT A NOBLE CAUSE.

AND IT IS ANYTHING BUT.

HOW WAS IT STARTED?

WHO IS THE GENESIS OF THE

ORGANIZATION?

THE PRIMARY FOUNDER OF

THIS WAS A GUY NAMED MORRIS

DEES IN 1971.

IT WAS ALLEGEDLY STARTED TO

TAKE ON CIVIL RIGHTS

ISSUES.

BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS THE ONLY THING THAT

REFLECTS ANY POVERTY IS

THEIR ETHICS AND THEIR

INTEGRITY.

WE KNOW NOW FROM LOOKING

INTO THEIR FINANCIAL

RECORDS, THEY HAVE ABOUT

$224 MILLION IN THE COFFERS

NOW, SOME OF WHICH IS IN

OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS.

THEY'RE FLEECING PEOPLE, AND

THEY'RE AGAINST ANYTHING

THAT IS CHRISTIAN, AND

ANYTHING THAT IS

TRADITIONAL.

Pat: $224 MILLION IS

HUGE.

THAT'S A HUGE WAR CHEST.

I COULD PROBABLY BUY A

NICE HOME IN THE CARRIBEAN

FOR THAT.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: YOU'RE SO NICE TO

BE WITH US.

WE REALLY ADMIRE YOU.

ONE OF THE GREAT WARRIORS OF

AMERICAN HISTORY.

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS

YOU.

Pat: GENERAL BOYKIN.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS WORKING TO

GET AN AMERICAN PASTOR SET

FREE FROM PRISON IN IRAN.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: ATTORNEYS FOR

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI SAY HE

IS BEING TORTURED IN A

BRUTAL PRISON IN IRAN.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE HAS FILED AN

APPEAL ON PASTOR ABEDINI'S

BEHALF.

HE IS A U.S. CITIZEN SERVING

EIGHT YEARS SIMPLY BECAUSE

HE IS A CHRISTIAN.

THE IRANIAN REGIME HAS CUT

HIM OFF FROM HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN, AND YOU CAN FIND

OUT HOW TO HELP PASTOR SAEED

BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

AS WE MENTIONED AT THE TOP

OF THE PROGRAM, PEOPLE IN

THE NORTHEAST ARE FACING A

BLIZZARD OF HISTORIC

PROPORTIONS.

IT COULD DUMP UP TO THREE

FEET OF SNOW IN SOME PARTS

OF NEW ENGLAND.

CITY'S MADE THEIR PREP

PATIONS THIS MORNING.

BOSTON MAY GET MORE THAN TWO

FEET OF SNOW.

NEW YORK CITY, 10 TO

14 INCHES.

MANY SCHOOLS AND BUSINESSES

CLOSED AHEAD OF THE STORM

AND AIRLINES CANCELLED MORE

THAN 2,000 FLIGHTS.

IN NEW JERSEY, PEOPLE GOT

READY, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE

NOT RECOVERED FULLY FROM THE

DEVASTATION OF SUPER STORM

SANDY.

CREWS ACROSS THE REGION UP

SALT TRUCKS.

ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED

TO BE SWIFT, HEAVY, AND

DANGEROUS.

STAY OFF THE STREETS OF

OUR CITY.

BASICALLY STAY HOME.

Lee: FORECASTERS

PREDICT THE STORM COULD BE

AMONG THE TOP 10 SNOW FORMS

IN NEW ENGLAND HISTORY.

THIS IS WORTH NOTING BECAUSE

BOSTON IS IN NEW ENGLAND,

BUT BECAUSE OF THE OCEAN,

BECAUSE OF ITS BEING SO

CLOSE TO THE OCEAN, IT

USUALLY DOESN'T GET AS MUCH

SNOWFALL AS WESTERN PARTS OF

THE STATE, BUT THEY'RE GOING

TO GET BELTED TODAY.

Pat: THIS IS HISTORIC.

YOU TALK ABOUT TWO AND THREE

FEET OF SNOW, COMING DOWN AS

FAST AS THIS IS?

IMAGINE DIGGING OUT FROM

THAT MESS.

THE ADVICE -- I RENEWED IT

BECAUSE THE SNOW MAY BE

FALLING ALL THIS DAY, ALL

THE NIGHT, AND MAYBE INTO

SATURDAY.

WE'RE NOT SURE HOW LONG IT

COULD CONTINUE, BUT IT COULD

LINGER OVER THAT AREA.

THE BEST ADVICE, YOU HEARD

THE GOVERNOR UP THERE IN

MASSACHUSETTS AND OTHERS,

STAY OFF THE STREETS.

I LIVED IN NEW YORK, AND IT

IS TOUGH GETTING AROUND IN

NEW YORK.

DON'T BE A HERO.

STAY HOME.

Terry: AND IT IS QUITE

WINDY.

Pat: IT IS LIKE

BLIZZARDS.

I REMEMBER THE LONG ISLAND

SUPPRESSESWAY SHUTTING DOWN,

AND SOME OF THE TRAINS ARE

SHUTTING DOWN, AND AIRPLANES

ARE CANCELLING THEIR

SCHEDULES.

THE BIGGEST THING, DON'T

TRAVEL.

STAY HOME.

DON'T TRY TO BE A HERO.

WE'VE HAD FLU DOWN HERE, AND

YOU DON'T WANT HEROS COMING

IN WITH FLU TO GET YOU

SICK.

STAY HOME.

IT'S OKAY.

Terry: THE BOSS SAYS

SO.

Pat: DON'T INFECT YOUR

FELLOW WORKERS.

Terry: WELL, COMING UP,

IN THE CASCADES, THE SCENERY

IS PICTURESQUE, BUT THE

PEOPLE LIVING IN THE VALLEY

BELOW ARE IN CONSTANT

DANGER.

FIND OUT WHY AND WHAT IS

BEING DONE TO PROTECT THEM

AFTER THIS.

*

Pat: WELL, THE CASCADE

MOUNTAIN RANGE IS JUST RIFE

WITH BREATHTAKING BEAUTY.

THEY HALL ALSO HAVE HOT

MAGMA THAT CAN ERUPT AT ANY

TIME.

WHEW!

WE'RE GOING TO -- WELL, THAT

MAGMA CAN HAVE THE POTENTIAL

OF WIPING OUT EVERYTHING

BELOW.

FOR 100 YEARS, SCIENTISTS

HAVE MONITORED VOLCANOS IN

THE UNITED STATES, AS MARK

MARTIN REPORTS, THEY'RE

USING THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY

TO KEEP PEOPLE LIVING IN THE

DANGER ZONES SAFE.

Reporter: THE CASCADE

MOUNTAIN RANGE LINES THE

UPPER HALF OF THE U.S. WEST

COAST.

THESE MASSIVE PEAKS, LIKE

MT. RAIN NEA RAINEER IN

WASHINGTON AND MOUNT HOOD,

REPRESENTS SOME OF AMERICA'S

GREATEST BEAUTY, UNDERNEATH,

THAT IS.

UNDERNEATH, LIES THE HOT

MAGMA, BECAUSE THE CASCADES

ARE ALSO ACTIVE VOLCANOS.

THEY HAVE ERUPTED BEFORE,

AND THEY WILL ERUPT AGAIN.

WHWHEN THEY ERUPT, THEY

WILL PRESENT A REAL HAZARD

TO THE PEOPLE LIVING BY.

Reporter: MOUNT SAINT

HELLENS TOOK THE LIVES OF 57

PEOPLE, AND DESTROYED NEARLY

EVER LIVING THING WITHIN 230

SQUARE MILES.

STILL A DANGER TODAY,

MOUNTAIN SAINT HELLENS IS

CONSIDERED ONE OF THE MOST

ACTIVE VOLCANOS.

IIT WAS A PIVOTAL POINT.

IT PUT VOLCANO MONITORING ON

THE FAST-TRACK.

FOR EXAMPLE, AT THE TIME,

THERE WAS ONLY ONE VOLCANO

OBSERVATORY IN THE ENTIRE

U.S.

TODAY THERE ARE FIVE.

THEY CAN BE FOUND IN

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK,

CALIFORNIA, ALASKA, HAWAII,

AND HERE IN THE CASCADES.

BECAUSE ST. HELENS CONTINUED

TO ERUPT ON AND OFF UNTIL

1986, IT BECAME A LABORATORY

FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS

TO DEVELOP NEW

INSTRUMENTATION, TO DEVELOP

THE COMPUTER SOFTWARE, THE

ALGOR ITHUMS TO MEASURE THE

INCREASINGLY LARGE AMOUNT OF

DATA.

Reporter: JOHN GAVE CBN

NEWS AN UPCLOSE LOOK AT THE

TECHNOLOGY MONITORING

MT. SAINT HELENS, AND THE

168 OT ACTIVE VOLCANOS, OVER

WHICH HALF CAN BE

EXPLOSIVE.

WHAT THIS INSTRUMENT

ALLOWS US TO DO IS LOOK AT

DATA IN REALTIME, AND GET

THE DATA TO OUR COLLEAGUES

SO WE CAN BUILD A MORE

COMPREHENSIVE VIEW OF WHAT

THE VOLCANO IS DOING DURING

REST.

Reporter: SCIENTISTS

HAVE THREE SIGNS: HOW MUCH A

VOLCANO IS SHAKING BECAUSE

OF EARTHQUAKES OR VIBRATIONS

DUE TO FLUID, IF IT IS

SWELLING OR CHANGING SHAPE

BECAUSE OF MAGMA PUSHING ON

ITS SIDES, AND THE AMOUNTS

AND TYPES OF VOLCANIC GASSES

IT IS SENDING OUT.

IT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE

ULTIMATELY, VOLCANIC GASES

DRIVE ERUPTIONS.

Reporter: TODAY'S

EQUIPMENT IS MUCH MORE

SENSITIVE TO THAT ACTIVITY,

AND PORTABLE, ALLOWING IT TO

GO WHERE PEOPLE CANNOT.

TAKE, FOR INSTANCE, THE

SPIDER.

IT IS REALLY NICE BECAUSE

WE SET IT DOWN WITH A

HELICOPTER, SO WE CAN REALLY

GET IT CLOSE TO A VOLCANO,

WHERE WE HAVE A REALLY HIGH

SIGNAL, WITHOUT ALL OF THE

NOISE FROM TOWNS AND SUCH.

Reporter: THAT NOISE

GETS CLOSER, HOWEVER, AS THE

DECEPTIVELY PICTURESQUE

SCENSCENERY LURES MORE

RESIDENTS.

AND THE CASCADES AS A

WHOLE, THE ONE WE WORRY

ABOUT THE MOST IS MOUNTAIN

MT. RAINEER.

Reporter: LOOK AT ALL

OF THE HOMES AT THE BASE OF

MT. RAINEER.

A GEOPHYSICIST SAYS AN

ERUPTION CAN SEND DEADLY MUD

FLOWS, FILLED WITH ROCK,

SAND, AND WATER AT HIGH

SPEEDS DOWN THE MOUNTAINS A

GREAT DISTANCES, DESTROYING

EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH.

AFTER IT LAST ERUPTED AROUND

200 YEARS AGO.

JUST ACROSS THE STREET, A

POPULATION CENTER.

HE INTERPRETS THIS AS A

WARNING, THAT WHAT HAPPENED

IN THE PAST CAN HAPPEN

AGAIN.

I DIDN'T SEE THE ERUPTION

OF SAINT HELENS IN 1980.

IT WAS AN ERUPTION IN THE

PHILIPPINES IN 1991.

IT WAS JUST LIKE HAVING A

HOLE BLOWN IN YOUR WORLD.

IT WAS SO MUCH BIGGER AND

FASTER THAN ANYTHING I HAVE

EVER SEEN.

Reporter: I'M HERE IN

THE TOWN OF GOVERNMENT

CAMP.

WHEN SCIENTISTS DETERMINE

THE RISK OF A PARTICULAR

AREA, THEY MOST DEFINITELY

CONSIDER DEVELOPMENTS LIKE

THIS, WHICH ARE SO CLOSE TO

THE MOUNTAIN.

SOME OF THE HIGHEST

THREAT VOLCANOS WE HAVE IN

THE UNITED STATES, ACTUALLY

THE MAJORITY OF THE HIGHEST

THREAT VOLCANOS, AND THAT'S

BECAUSE

WE HAVE SO MANY

PEOPLE AND INFRASTRUCTURE

NEARBY.

Reporter: AND THAT,

ACCORDING TO YORK, PUTS THE

PRESSURE ON FOUR GREATER

ACCURACY AND PREDICTIONS,

AND ALSO IMPROVED MONITORING

TECHNOLOGY.

SCIENTISTS ALSO URGE

RESIDENTS TO CONSIDER

POTENTIAL HAZARDS, EVEN

HIDDEN ONES, BEFORE CHOOSING

WHERE THEY LIVE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS, THE

PACIFIC NORTHWEST.

Pat: THANKS, MARK.

TERRY, I WORKED AS A -- I

THINK I WAS A SOPHOMORE IN

COLLEGE, AND I WORKED FOR A

TIME AT YELLOWSTONE.

Terry: OH, YOU DID?

Pat: YEAH.

AND I LIVED IN A LITTLE HUT

ON THE EDUCATE OF

YELLOWSTONE LAKE.

AND AT NIGHT, WHEN WE HAD A

LITTLE TIME OFF, WE WOULD GO

SWIMMING.

IT WAS FREEZING COLD, EXCEPT

THERE WERE LITTLE VOLCANIC

POOLS WITH HOT WATER.

SO IT WAS KIND OF FUN.

OKAY.

IT'S BEAUTIFUL AT

YELLOWSTONE.

IT IS LOVELY.

IT WAS A GREAT TIME TO SPEND

THERE.

AND I WAS WORKING -- WE WERE

HAVING -- CARS WERE COMING

THROUGH, AND I WAS WORKING

AT A FILLING STATION THAT

BELONGED TO THE PARK

SERVICE.

AND WE WERE PUMPING GAS LIKE

THERE WAS NO TOMORROW.

BUT YELLOWSTONE IS THE

BIGGEST HAZARD IN THE WHOLE

WORLD.

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: IT IS ENORMOUS.

AND UNDERNEATH --

Terry: BECAUSE OF WHAT

COULD BE ACTIVITY UNDERNEATH

THE SURFACE?

Pat: UNBELIEVABLE.

IT HAS BLOWN UP IN THE PAST,

BUT IF IT EXPLODES, IT'S

HUGE.

YELLOWSTONE IS HUGE.

IT IS NOT JUST THIS ONE

MOUNTAIN.

YOU SEE OLD FAITHFUL AND THE

GEYSER AND ALL OF THIS

STUFF.

IF IT EXPLODES, IT IS AN

EXTINCTION.

IT COULD WIPE OUT LIFE IN

THE UNITED STATES, AND

POSSIBLY LIFE ON EARTH.

BECAUSE THE SUN WILL BE

DARKENED, AND THE HARVEST

WON'T BE THERE AND THE

TEMPERATURE WILL CHANGE.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE DINOSAURS

WILL DIE.

Terry: THE DICHOTOMY OF

THAT KNOWLEDGE AND THE

BREATHTAKING BEAUTY OF IT

NOW IN ITS STILLNESS IS JUST

HARD TO COMPREHEND.

Pat: THE SAME THING

WITH MT. HOOD.

Terry: AND PEOPLE HAVE

SETTLED THERE.

Pat: IT IS GORGEOUS,

BUT THEY ARE SLEEPING

GIANTS, FEARFUL GIANTS, I

MIGHT ADD.

AND YOU JUST WANT TO KEEP IN

MIND IT IS ONE OF THOSE

THINGS THAT IT IS IN GOD'S

HANDS, BUT IT HAS THE

POTENTIAL, THAT BEAUTIFUL

YELLOWSTONE PARK, WHICH WAS

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO

WORK AND VISIT, IT HAS THE

POTENTIAL TO DESTROY

AMERICA, THE WHOLE COUNTRY.

I MEAN, IF THAT BLOWS, WE'RE

GONE.

Terry: THAT'S THE THING

I REMEMBER ABOUT MT. SAINT

HELENS, HOW FAST EVERYTHING

HAPPENED.

YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO THINK

OR RERESPOND.

Pat: THAT OLD MAN, I

THINK HE TOOK THE NAME HARRY

S. TRUMAN, THAT LIVED UP ON

THERE, AND HE WASN'T GOING

TO MOVE.

IT WIPED HIM OUT.

ST. HELENS WAS MUCH BIGGER

THAN ANYBODY THOUGHT.

OKAY.

SO MUCH FOR THAT.

WE'VE SCARED YOU FOR THE

DAY.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: GET OUT TO

YELLOWSTONE WHILE YOU STILL

CAN.

UP NEXT, AN ADDICT MEETS A

STRANGER IN RECOVERY WHO

THEN VANISHES.

YOU JUST GOT TO GO.

I SAID WHERE DID THE GUY

GO.

AND SHE SAID, THERE IS JUST

YOU AND ME IN HERE.

Terry: SEE HOW A SUPER

NATURAL INTERVENTION SETS

THIS ALCOHOLIC FREE.

Pat: REMEMBER THAT SONG

THAT CAME OUT A FEW YEARS

AGO, AND THE TITLE WAS

ALCOHOL, AND WHAT HAS IT

DONE TO PEOPLE?

STEVE SELLERS LOVED TO

DRINK.

AND TO STEVE, ALCOHOL WAS

MORE IMPORTANT TO HIM THAN

HIS CAREER, HIS FRIENDS,

EVEN HIS FAMILY.

STEVE GAVE UP EVERYTHING

JUST TO KEEP ON DRINKING.

HE WAS A SLAVE.

UNTIL ONE DAY HE HAD A SUPER

NATURAL ENCOUNTER WITH A

STRANGER.

THE FIRST TIME I DRANK, I

WAS 16 YEARS OLD.

WE WENT TO THE AIRPORT.

AND GOT DRUNK.

WE BELIEVED WE WERE THE ONLY

TWO KIDS IN HIGH SCHOOL THAT

HADN'T DON'T THAT YET.

STEVE SELLERS HAD NO IDEA

HOW THAT DECISION WOULD SET

THE COURSE FOR THE REST OF

HIS LIFE.

I REMEMBER IT VIVIDLY

BECAUSE I GOT VERY SICK THAT

NIGHT.

BUT THE THING I REMEMBER

MORE IS I WENT OUT AND DID

THE SAME THING THE NEXT

NIGHT.

Reporter: AS STEVE GOT

OLDER, HIS HABIT GOT WORSE.

I DRANK BECAUSE THE

PEOPLE I HUNG AROUND WITH

DRANK.

I WENT TO COLLEGE IN

FLORIDA.

WE ALL DRANK DOWN THERE.

I GOT MARRIED BETWEEN MY

JUNIOR AND SENIOR YEARS IN

COLLEGE.

AFTER GRADUATION, THE

COUPLE MOVED BACK TO IOWA

AND STEVE STARTED TEACHING.

STEVE TRIED TO HIDE HIS

ADDICTION FROM HIS WIFE AND

LATER HIS TWO DAUGHTERS, BUT

KNEE KNEW.

THEY KNEW.

INSTEAD OF GOING HOME, HE

WENT OUT WITH FRIENDS.

ALCOHOL WAS THE MOST

IMPORTANT PART OF OUR

EXISTENCE UP THERE.

THE CRAVING FOR ALCOHOL

BECAME MORE IMPORTANT THAN

ANYTHING.

THERE WERE TIMES I WOULD

PUT OFF GOING UP TO TUCK MY

DAUGHTER IN BECAUSE I WANTED

TO FINISH THE DRINK.

HE LOVED US, BUT HE WAS

ALSO BUSY A LOT.

HE WOULD GO TO THE BASEMENT

AND SPENDE SPENDS A LOT OF

TIME IN THE BASEMENT BECAUSE

HE HAD A LONG DAY.

OR I WOULD PUT OFF GOING

OUTSIDE TO PLAY WITH HER OR

GOING FOR A BIKE RIDE

BECAUSE I WANTED ONE MORE

GLASS OF WINE.

WHEN HE FATHER HAD A

SEVERE HEART ATTACK, HE

RELIED ON DRINKING EVEN

MORE.

I WOULD STOP AND BUY A

BOTTLE OF VODKA ON THE WAY

TO THE HOSPITAL, JUST TO GET

MYSELF READY TO SEE HIM.

ON THE DAY HE DIED, I LET IT

TAKE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER

ME.

IT WAS THE ONE THING I

BELIEVED GOT ME THROUGH THAT

DAY, AND IT CONVINCED ME,

HEY, IF I CAN GET YOU

THROUGH THAT DAY, I CAN GET

YOU THROUGH ANYTHING.

I BOUGHT INTO THAT LIE.

STEVE'S WIFE TOOK THEIR

DAUGHTERS AND LEFT HIM AND

FILED FOR DIVORCE.

HIS BOSS CONFRONTED HIM

ABOUT HIS DRINKING AND

OFFERED HIM A DEAL.

AND LAID OUT A CONTRACT

FOR ME, STATING THAT YOU

NEED TO GO HAVE AN ALCOHOL

ASSESSMENT.

IF THEY TELL YOU YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM, YOU NEED TO ADDRESS

IT, COMPLETE THEIR PROGRAM,

AND THEN YOU CAN COME BACK

TO WORK.

AND WE WILL PAY YOU WHILE

YOU DO THAT.

IF THEY TELL YOU YOU DON'T

HAVE A PROBLEM, EVERYTHING

IS FINE.

STEVE ENROLLED IN THE

PROGRAM, BUT COULDN'T MAKE

IT LONG WITHOUT ALCOHOL.

HIS SISTERS AND OTHER FAMILY

MEMBERS INTERVENED AND

INSISTED HE GO TO A DETOX

CENTER.

I WAS ANGRY, AND WHEN I

GOT OUT OF THERE, I WAS

GOING TO RUN AWAY.

YOU ASKED ME AT ONE POINT

HOW IMPORTANT IS ALCOHOL IN

YOUR LIFE?

THAT'S HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS,

I WAS GOING TO LEAVE

EVERYTHING BEHIND ME.

STEVE HAD A PLAN, BUT HE

SAYS GOD HAD ONE, TOO.

I WAS SITTING AT THIS

TABLE, 2:00 IN THE MORNING.

I NOTICED THERE WAS A MAN

SITTING AT THE TABLE WITH

ME.

THERE WAS A NURSE AT THE

NURSES' STATION, AND HE AND

I WERE AT THE TABLE.

AND THAT WAS IT.

I FINALLY FELT LIKE I SHOULD

SAY SOMETHING TO HIM.

SO I LOOKED AT HIM, AND I

ASKED HIM, WHAT HAPPENED TO

YOU.

AND HE TOLD ME HE HAD STOLEN

A CAR, AND HE HAD HAD AN

ACCIDENT AND HE HAD GOTTEN

HURT AND HE HAD BEEN BROUGHT

IN HERE.

AND THEN HE PAUSED FOR A

MINUTE, AND HE SAID, OH, AND

I'M GOING TO JAIL TOMORROW.

AND I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT

I WAS SITTING THERE WITH

SOMEBODY LIKE THAT.

AND I SAID TO HIM -- AND I

NORMALLY DON'T SAY LIKE THIS

TO PEOPLE, BUT I SAID TO

HIM, YOU'RE SICK.

AND HE JUST LOOKED AT ME.

AND HE LEANED IN AND HE

SAID, WE ARE ALL SICK.

AND THEN HE SAID TO ME, AND

WE ALL NEED TO BE SAVED.

AND I WAS OVERWHELMED WHEN

HE SAID THAT TO ME.

AND IT JUST HIT ME, WHAT I

HAD DONE.

WHAT I HAD DONE TO MY KIDS.

WHAT I HAD DONE TO MY

FAMILY, THE PEOPLE I WORK

FOR, MY FRIENDS, MY MOM, MY

SISTER.

MYSELF.

IT JUST HIT ME THAT I AM NO

BETTER THAN ANYBODY ELSE

THAT IS IN HIS PLACE.

AND WHEN I REALIZED THAT,

AND WHEN I HEARD THOSE

WORDS, I PUT MY HEAD DOWN

FOR A MINUTE BECAUSE I KNEW

I WAS GOING TO START TO

CRY.

WHEN I LOOKED BACK UP, HE

WAS NOT THERE.

HE WAS NOT THERE.

BUT I LOOKED AROUND THE

ROOM, AND FINALLY I LOOKED

OVER AT THE NURSE AT THE

NURSES' STATION, AND I SAID,

HEY, WHERE DID THIS GO?

AND SHE SAID, WHAT GUY ARE

YOU TALKING ABOUT?

AND I SAID, THE GUY THAT WAS

RIGHT HERE.

AND SHE SAID, THERE IS JUST

YOU AND ME IN HERE.

YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO

SLEEP.

STEVE BELIEVED FOR THE

FIRST TIME GOD WAS REAL AND

GOD COULD HELP HIM.

MY SIN WAS MY WORSHIP OF

A FALSE GOD.

AND I WALKED AWAY AND I'VE

NEVER LOOKED BACK.

AND I'VE NEVER, IN THE 17

YEARS SINCE THAT HAPPENED,

HAD A DROP OF ALCOHOL.

HAVE I HAD URGES EARLY ON?

ABSOLUTELY.

BUT I HAD THE POWER OF THE

LORD IN ME, AND I HAD HIS

LOVE.

I HAD HIS FORGIVENESS.

STEVE STARTED READING HIS

BIBLE AND PRAYING.

IN 2000, I ASKED MY

DAUGHTERS FOR A NEW BIBLE,

AND THEY BLESSED ME WITH A

LIFE RECOVERY BIBLE, AND

THAT'S WHAT I'VE DONE EVERY

DAY SINCE.

I GET INTO THE WORD EVERY

DAY.

Reporter: IN 2006,

STEVE MET AND MARRIED

TRISHA, AND HE ALSO STARTED

SHIP RECOVERY MINISTRY, TO

HELP OTHERS WHO STRUGGLE

WITH ADDICTIONS.

HE WAKES UP EVERY DAY

TRYING TO BE A BETTER

HUSBAND THAN THE DAY BEFORE,

TO BE A BETTER FATHER, TO BE

A BETTER CHRIST FOLLOWER

THAN HE WAS BEFORE.

HE HAS THE BEST HEART AND

REALLY WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR

ANYBODY.

IT IS NICE TO SEE WHEN HE

GETS A PHONE CALL, SURE, IT

IS NOT AT THE BEST TIME, BUT

IF SOMEONE NEEDS THEM, HE IS

THERE FOR THEM.

I THINK THERE ARE NOT THAT

MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO

ARE THAT GENUINE AND THAT

CARING.

YOU CAN'T DO THIS ON YOUR

OWN.

I HEAR SO MANY MEN WHO SAY

I'M FINE.

I CAN DO THIS.

I'LL TAKE CARE OF THIS.

I'LL BE OKAY.

NO, YOU WON'T.

IN MY EXPERIENCE, THE ONLY

WAY THAT YOU CAN BE FREED

FROM SIN, BUT SPECIFICALLY

FROM ADDICTION,

IS ALLOWING

THE LORD TO DO

IT.

HE WILL OFFER IT TO

ANYBODY.

I STILL HAVE PEOPLE IN MY

LIFE WHO COME UP TO ME AND

SAY, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU

FOR WHAT YOU DID.

AND I TELL THEM, I DIDN'T DO

ANYTHING EXCEPT ALLOW THE

LORD TO DO EVERYTHING.

Pat: WE'RE ALL SICK.

AND WE NEED A SAVIOR.

THERE ARE VARIOUS KINDS OF

SICKNESS.

THERE IS HATRED, THERE IS

BITTERNESS.

THERE IS RESENTMENT.

THERE IS PREJUDICE.

IT GOES DOWN THE LIST.

SELF-WILL, PRIDE.

IT IS A SICKNESS THAT HAS

AFFECTED THE HUMAN RACE;

IT'S CALLED SIN.

BUT SOME MANIFESTATIONS OF

SIN ARE WORSE BECAUSE THEY

INVOLVE SLAVERY.

YOU SEE, AN ALCOHOLIC IS A

SLAVE.

HE IS A SLAVE TO THE PRODUCT

OF VEGETABLES.

HE IS A SLAVE TO

VEGETABLES.

HE IS A SLAVE TO FERMENTED

CORN, FERMENTED BA BARLEY,

FERMENTED GRAPES.

HE IS A SLAVE TO

VEGETABLES.

THAT'S WHAT AN ALCOHOLIC IS,

A SLAVE TO VEGETABLES.

YOU SAY, I WAS MADE IN THE

IMAGE OF GOD.

BUT I HAVE A SICKNESS.

AND GOD SAYS I WANT TO HEAL

THAT SICKNESS BECAUSE I LOVE

YOU.

I MADE YOU IN MY IMAGE.

AND I DIDN'T INTEND YOU TO

BE A SLAVE TO VEGETABLES OR

TO FRUIT OR TO POPPY SEEDS.

OR TO THE LEAF OF CANNABIS.

I DIDN'T INTEND YOU TO BE A

SLAVE TO VEGETABLES.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE

DOMINION OVER THE EARTH.

AND I'LL COME AND I'LL TAKE

CARE OF WHATEVER YOU'VE GOT

AND I'LL SET YOU FREE.

STAND UP INSIDE.

THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE

WATCHING THIS WHO HAVE

PROBLEMS, STAND UP INSIDE.

BE A MAN, A WOMAN, A HUMAN

BEING.

I AM MADE IN THE IMAGE OF

GOD ALMIGHTY.

I'M A CHILD OF GOD.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME

RIGHT NOW.

THE LORD WILL SET YOU FREE

FROM BONDAGE SO THAT YOU CAN

WALK THE EARTH WITH YOUR

HEAD HELD HIGH, AS A CHILD

OF GOD.

SAY THESE WORDS, MEAN THEM

IN YOUR HEART.

BOW YOUR HEAD.

JESUS -- PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW THE SICKNESS

THAT I HAVE, AND YOU KNOW

I'M A SINNER.

I DON'T HIDE IT, LORD.

I DON'T HIDE IT FROM YOU

BECAUSE YOU KNOW ANYWAY.

I'M A SINNER, LORD, AND I

KNOW YOU DIED FOR SINNERS,

AND I KNOW YOU LOVE ME.

SO RIGHT NOW, LORD, I COME

AGAINST THE BONDAGE AND THE

SLAVERY THAT I HAVE BEEN

UNDER.

AND I RENOUNCE THAT WHICH

WOULD DESTROY ME.

AND I SAY TO YOU, LORD, I

SURRENDER MY LIFE TO YOU.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I'M

YOURS AND YOU'RE MINE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AND NOW FOR THOSE WHO PRAY

WITH ME, FATHER, MAY THE

ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

COME UPON THEM, AND TOUCH

THEM IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, IT'S THE

MOST IMPORTANT DECISION.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE FREE.

I WANT YOU TO DECLARE YOUR

FREEDOM.

I'VE GOT SOMETHING THAT WILL

HELP YOU.

A LITTLE LITERATURE THAT

WILL HELP YOU, A LITTLE C.D.

YOU CAN LISTEN TO.

IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH.

73 MINUTES.

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT'S

HAPPENED WHEN YOU HAVE

PRAYED AND ACCEPTED THE

LORD.

A NEW DAY, AND YOU'RE

ENTERING A NEW DAY.

SO CALL RIGHT NOW, AND SAY,

I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I'M FREE.

SEND ME THAT LITTLE PACKET

THAT WILL HELP ME.

BUT IT'S A TOLL-FREE

NUMBER.

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S EASY TO REMEMBER.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL RIGHT NOW AND SAY,

I PRAYED, I'VE GIVEN MY

HEART TO THE LORD, AND I AM

REJOICING.

QUICKLY, THE PHONES ARE

AVAILABLE.

CALL NOW, 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

ONE OF OUR VIEWERS

WRITES, "YOU SAID THAT JESUS

WILL REWARD CHRISTIANS WHEN

THEY GET TO HEAVEN.

WHAT KINDS OF THINGS WILL HE

REWARD US FOR, AND WHAT DO

WE NEED TO DO TO RECEIVE

THEM?"

FIND OUT WHEN WE BRING IT

ON.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

AMERICANS PUT ASIDE THEIR

POLITICAL DIFFERENCES IN

WASHINGTON FOR A TIME ON

THURSDAY AND FOCUSED INSTEAD

ON THEIR SHARED FAITH IN

JESUS CHRIST.

THOUSANDS GATHERED FOR THE

NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS HIS

RECENT INAUGURATION CAUSED

HIM TO FOCUS ON THE POWER OF

HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH.

President Obama:

SOMETIMES I SEARCH SCRIPTURE

TO DETERMINE HOW BEST TO

BALANCE LIFE AS A PRESIDENT

AND AS A HUSBAND AND AS A

FATHER.

I OFTEN SEARCH FOR SCRIPTURE

TO FIGURE OUT HOW I CAN BE A

BETTER MAN, AS WELL AS A

BETTER PRESIDENT.

AND I BELIEVE THAT WE ARE

UNITED IN THESE STRUGGLES.

BUT I ALSO BELIEVE THAT WE

ARE UNITED IN THE KNOWLEDGE

OF A REDEEMING SAVIOR, WHO'S

GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THE

MULTITUDE OF OUR SINS, AND

WHO'S LOVE IS NEVER

FAILING.

Lee: WORLD REKNOWED

SURGEON DR. BEN CARSON GAVE

THE KEY NOTE ADDRESS.

HE CALLED JESUS HIS ROLE

MODEL.

AND STANDING A FEW FEET FROM

THE PRESIDENT, DR. CARSON

CRITICIZED HIGHER TAXES ON

THE WEALTHY, AND HE CALLED

FOR CHANGES TO THE HEALTH

CARE SYSTEM THAT PROMOTE

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY,

NOT

MORE GOVERNMENT CONTROL.

"OPERATION BLESSING" TEAMS

HELPED MAKE MUCH-NEEDED

IMPROVEMENTS TO

AN ORPHANAGE

IN UGANDA.

MANY OF THE CHILDREN WILL

WERE ABANDONED BY THEIR

PARENTS.

THEY CAN RECEIVE FOOD,

SHELTER, AND LOVING CARE.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PROVIDED NEW BEDS,

MATTRESSES,

SHEETS, MOSQUITO

NETS, AND A FRESH COAT OF

PAINT.

YOU CAN

FIND OUT

MORE ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING" BY

GOING

TO ITS WEBSITE AT

OB.ORG.

STAY TUNED.

PAT AND TERRY

WILL

BE

BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

SOME TIME TO ANSWER THE

E-MAIL QUESTIONS YOU'VE SENT

IN.

THE FIRST VIEWER ASKS THIS,

"YOU SAID JESUS WILL REWARD

CHRISTIANS WHEN THEY GET TO

HEAVEN.

WHAT KIND OF THINGS WILL HE

REWARD US FOR, AND WHAT DO

WE NEED TO DO TO RECEIVE

THEM?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

WE'LL STAND BEFORE THE BEMA,

THE JUST SEAT OF CHRIST.

AND HE WENT OVER THE LIST OF

STUFF.

I WAS HUNGRY, AND YOU FED

ME.

I WAS NAKED AND YOU CLOTHED

ME.

I WAS SICK AND YOU CAME TO

ME.

I WAS IN PRISON AND YOU CAME

TO VISIT ME.

IN AS MUCH AS YOU'VE DONE IT

TO THE LEAST OF THESE -- THE

QUESTION IS ARE WE HIS HAND

EXTENDED TO THOSE

SUFFERING?

THOSE HURTING?

THE BIBLE SAYS THOSE WHO

LEAD MANY TO FAITH WILL

SHINE LIKE THE STARS IN THE

HEAVENS.

SO THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS

THAT YOU CAN DO.

YOU SAY, WHAT CAN YOU DO?

HE ALSO SAID, NOT EVERYBODY

WHO SAYS TO ME LORD, WILL

ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM.

BUT THOSE WHO DO THE WILL OF

MY FATHER.

IT IS THE QUESTION OF DOING

THE WILL OF GOD.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT REWARDS

THERE ARE.

HE'S GOT A LIMITLESS

AMOUNT -- MAYBE HE'LL GIVE

US CHARGE OF A PLANET.

I'M NOT SURE I WANT A

PLANET.

Terry: IT WILL BE

SOMETHING YOU WANT.

Pat: BEYOND BELIEF.

BEYOND BELIEF!

ANYHOW, THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS,

WE'LL STAND BEFORE THE

JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST TO

RECEIVE THOSE THINGS DONE IN

THE BODY.

THERE WILL BE SOME

PUNISHMENT FOR THOSE WHO

HAVE SAVED, BUT HAVEN'T

BEHAVED THEMSELVES THE WAY

THEY SHOULD.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS IS HARRIET, PAT, AND

SHE SAYS, "OBVIOUSLY EACH OF

THE "700 CLUB" HOSTS HAVE

RECEIVED THE GIFT OF

KNOWLEDGE.

HAVE ANY OF YOU BEEN BLESSED

WITH ALL NINE?"

Pat: YOU USED THE TERM

"GIFT" AND "MANIFESTATION."

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE

ANY, QUOTE,"GIFT OF

KNOWLEDGE."

IT IS WORD OF KNOWLEDGE,

WHICH HAS TO DO WITH

SOMEBODY AT A PARTICULAR

POINT IN TIME, A CONDITION

THAT THE LORD IS SPEAKING

TO.

THAT'S THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

IN MY CASE, I'VE SEEN THE

WORD OF WISDOM, I'VE SEEN

SPEAKING IN TONGUES, I'VE

SEEN PROPHECY, I'VE SEEN

MIRACLES AND I'VE SEEN

HEALING, ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

THE ONE I HAVE NOT MOVED

INTO IS DISCERNING SPIRITS,

WHICH HAS TO DO WITH SEEING

INTO THE INVISIBLE WORLD AND

ACTUALLY SEEING SPIRITS.

I HAVE NOT DONE THAT, AND I

PROBABLY JUST AS WELL NOT.

BUT WHEN DEALING WITH

DEMONS, THE LORD THERE SHOW

ME WHAT I'M DEALING WITH AND

THEN I CAN ADDRESS THEM.

BUT THIS IS -- PAUL SAID

EARNESTLY DESIRE THE BETTER

GIFTS, ESPECIALLY THAT YOU

WOULD PROPHESY.

SO THAT'S ALL.

Terry: ASK FOR IT.

Pat: ASK AND YOU WILL

RECEIVE.

Terry: THIS

IS AMBERLY,

WHO SAYS, "I HAVE BEEN

RAISED IN THE CHURCH ALL MY

LIFE AND HAVE BEEN TO MANY

DIFFERENT CHURCHES.

NOW THAT I'M MARRIED AND

HAVE HAD MY FIRST CHILD, I

HAVE A HARD TIME GOING TO

CHURCH.

I LOVE WATCHING SERVICES ON

TV AND TALKING TO MY FAMILY

AND FRIENDS.

I FEEL LIKE I GET MORE FROM

THIS AND MY ONE-ON-ONE

COMMUNICATION OF GOD.

DO YOU HAVE TO GO TO

CHURCH?"

Pat: THERE IS A TIME

WHEN YOU MEET TO BE WITH

FELLOW CHRISTIANS.

BUT THE BIBLE SAYS, WHERE

TWO AR TWO OR MORE OF YOU

ARE GATHERED IN MY NAME

BECOMES A CHURCH.

BUT IT IS BETTER TO GET

TOGETHER WITH FELLOW

CHRISTIANS, BUT THERE ISN'T

SOME BROWNIE POINT THAT

COMES WITH A HARRIED MOTHER

GETTING HER KIDS ALL

TOGETHER TO TROT DOWN TO

CHURCH.

IT USED TO BE THAT WAS A

GOOD THING, YOU GROW UP IN

CHURCH AND HEAR THE

PREACHING.

Terry: JILLIAN

SAYS, "IS IT BIBLICAL FOR

CHRISTIANS TO VISIT THE

GRAVES OF EVANGELISTS TO

RECEIVE THE ANOINTING."

Pat: THEY TALK ABOUT A

DEAD MAN THROWING THE BONES

INTO ELIJAH AND HE JUMPED

UP.

I DON'T KNOW IF GOING TO THE

BONES OF JOHN WESLEY WILL

MAKE YOU MORE HOLY.

BUT I DO READ THE WRITINGS

OF WESLEY.

SO I THINK RATHER THAN GOING

TO THEIR GRAVE SITE AND

LOOKING FOR SOME SUPER

NATURAL ANOINTINGS, YOU

SHOULD PARTAKE OF THEIR

WRITINGS AND WHAT THEY HAVE

SAID AND THE EXAMPLE THEY

HAVE LIVED, AND THE

BIOGRAPHY ABOUT THEM WOULD

BE FAR, FAR BETTER.

Terry: AN ANOINTING

COMES FROM THE LORD.

Pat: SURE IT DOES.

Terry: BRIANNA SAYS, "I

HAVE A SMALL TATTOO ON MY

WRIST, DIRECT MY FOOTSTEPS

ACCORDING TO YOUR WORDS, LET

NO SIN OVER ME.

IS IT WRONG IF I WANT TO GET

ANOTHER TATTOO ABOUT MY

FAITH?"

Pat: I THINK -- THE

HEATHAN MARKED THEIR BODIES

AND THE ISRAELITES WERE

FORBIDDEN TO TATTOO AND CUT

THEIR BODIES.

BASICALLY, I THINK THAT

YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING

WRONG.

BUT IT IS DONE WITH A GOOD

HEART AND A GOOD INTENTION,

AND GOD WILL LOOK AT YOUR

HEART.

IT IS KIND OF NICE TO LOOK

AT SOMETHING -- MAYBE YOU

COULD JUST HAVE A LITTLE ARM

BAND THAT SAYS, "WHAT WOULD

JESUS DO?"

Terry: I THINK OF

CAPERNAC AND HIS SLEEVES --

Pat: HE HAS IT ALL DOWN

HERE --

Terry: HE HAS A GOOD

HEART.

Pat: HE HAS A GOOD

HEART, BUT I THINK IT IS

UGLY.

Terry: THERE IS YOUR

FASHION STATEMENT FOR THE

DAY.

IN HONDURAS, MANY PEOPLE

CAN'T AFFORD THE MOST BASIC

MEDICAL CARE, SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" SET UP CLINICS

WITH FREE DOCTORS' VISITS

AND MEDICINE.

FOR A BABY IN ONE VILLAGE,

THAT MEANT THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH.

Reporter: WHEN

3-MONTH-OLD RYAN WOKE UP

WITH A COUGH, HIS MOTHER

WASN'T TOO WORRIED AND

PREPARED SOME HOME

REMEDIES.

HOURS LATER, HE GOT WORSE.

HE BEGAN TO COUGH AND HAD

A FEVER.

THEN IT BECAME HARD FOR HIM

TO BREATHE.

I THOUGHT WE WERE LOSING

HIM, THAT HE WAS GOING TO

DIE.

I PANICKED.

I THOUGHT, WE ARE POOR.

WE DON'T HAVE MONEY FOR A

DOCTOR OR A CLINIC.

Reporter: THAT'S WHEN

THEY REMEMBERED A CLINIC IN

ANOTHER TOWN THAT HAD

MEDICINE DONATED FROM AN

ORGANIZATION IN AMERICA, BUT

IT WAS ALREADY LATE AND THE

CLINIC WAS CLOSED.

THE NEXT MORNING, MARACRUZ

RACED TO THE CLINIC.

WHEN I GOT THERE, I SAW

ALL OF THESE PEOPLE.

BUT I WAS SO DESPERATE, I

JUST RAN INTO ONE OF THE

DOCTOR'S OFFICES AND SAID,

HELP ME, MY SON IS DYING.

Reporter: THE DOCTOR

QUICKLY CHECKED RYAN AND

TOLD HIS MOTHER HE HAD

PNEUMONIA.

BUT AS SOON AS HE RECEIVED

HIS FIRST TREATMENT WITH

MEDICINE PROVIDED BY

"OPERATION BLESSING," HE

STARTED TO PERK UP.

AND THE DOCTOR GAVE HIM

STRONG ANTIBIOTICS THAT HAD

BEEN GIVEN TO THE CLINIC BY

"OPERATION BLESSING."

THOSE ANTIBIOTICS SAVED

RYAN'S LIFE.

THE DOCTOR TOLD ME WHAT

TO DO, AND I GAVE HIM ALL OF

THE MEDICINE.

Reporter: WITHIN A FEW

DAYS, RYAN WAS FEELING MUCH

BETTER.

WHEN HIS MOM TOOK HIM BACK

TO THE CLINIC 10 DAYS LATER,

THE DOCTOR GAVE RYAN A CLEAN

BILL OF HELP.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO THANK

FOR SAVING MY SON'S LIFE

WITH THOSE WONDERFUL

MEDICINE.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: THAT IS A SMILE

WORTH A MILLION, IN IT?

COMING INTO THE MIDDLE OF

DESPERATION AND NEED, AND

MAKING A DIFFERENCE, BEING

JESUS TO PEOPLE, PROVIDING

WHAT THEY NEED TO HAVE HOPE

AND TO HAVE A FUTURE, THAT'S

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, PLUS WE'LL SEE YOU

HOW A WOMAN WAS HEALED FROM

10 YEARS OF ACID REFLUX IN

AN

INSTANT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: BONITA MENSER

SUFFERED WITH ACID REFLUX

FOR 10 YEARS.

THE DEC MAD DISEASE MADE IT

HARD FOR HER TO SWALLOW, AND

EVEN DRINKING A SIP OF WATER

BURNED GOING DOWN HER

THROAT.

HERE IS HOW HE FOUND A

PERMANENT CURE.

Reporter: BONITA MENSER

IS A WORKING MOTHER, BUT A

PAIN IN HER THROAT SLOWED

HER DOWN.

ON THE PAIN SCALE OF ONE

TO 10, I WOULD SAY IT WAS A

10.

Reporter: HER

PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE DIDN'T

HELP.

I SUFFERED FOR QUITE A

LONG TIME.

Reporter: ONE DAY SHE

WAS WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND WAS ENJOYING LISTENING

TO PAT AND TERRY PRAY FOR

THE VIEWERS.

Terry: SOMEONE WITH

ACID REFLUX, A SERIOUS

CONDITION, GOD IS HEALING

THAT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

SHE SAID, THERE IS

SOMEBODY OUT THERE WHO HAS A

SEVERE ACID REFLUX DISEASE,

AND GOD IS CURING YOU OF

THAT RIGHT NOW.

I PUT MY HAND UP, AND I I

WAS, LIKE, I CLAIM THAT.

I'M CLAIMING THAT RIGHT

NOW.

AND JUST AS I DID THAT, A

GREAT SENSATION CAME OVER

ME.

AND THE BURNING STOPPED.

AND I WAS LIKE, OH, MY GOD,

GOD CURED ME.

I WAS, LIKE, THANK YOU, GOD,

THANK YOU.

I WAS SO GRATEFUL TO HIM.

I WAS SINGING HIS PRAISES.

I WAS, LIKE, YAY!

Reporter: AND THE PAIN

HAS NEVER RETURNED.

BONITA IS VERY GRATEFUL TO

THE LORD.

PRAISE GOD.

HE DOES MIRACLES.

IF GOD CAN HELP ME, HE CAN

HELP ANYBODY ELSE.

YOU JUST HAVE TO HAVE

FAITH.

Terry: AND HE WILL.

AND EVEN THE FAITH THAT YOU

NEED TO BELIEVE COMES FROM

HIM.

TODAY WE'RE JUST ASKING GOD

TO GIVE FAITH FOR MIRACLES.

THIS IS AMANDA FROM

SWEETWATER, TEXAS.

LAST YEAR SHE HAD PAIN THAT

RADIATE FRANCHISE HERADIATE

FROM HER LOWER BACK TO

FOOT.

IT MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR HER

TO DO HER JOB.

SHE HAD X-RAYS, AND THE

BONES IN HER SPINE WERE

RUBBING TOGETHER.

THE DOCTORS GAVE HER PAIN

MEDICATION AND PHYSICAL

INJECTIONS AND TOLD HER ONE

DAY SHE MIGHT NEED SURGERY.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM AND HEARD YOU

PRAY, AND SHE CRIED AND

CRIED, AND SHE GAVE HER LIFE

TO JESUS.

SHE IS NO LONGER IN PAIN,

NOR DOES SHE WALK WITH A

LIMP.

AS SHE SURRENDERED TO JESUS,

HE HEALED HER, SAVED HER,

AND SET HER FREE.

Pat: TERRY, IT IS JUST

AMAZING.

YOU KNOW, WE DON'T KNOW

THESE PEOPLE PERSONALLY.

GOD KNOWS THEM.

WE KNOW THE LORD, AND THE

LORD SPEAKS TO US ABOUT

THESE PEOPLE.

RIGHT NOW WE WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER.

LET THIS BE THE MOMENT THAT

A MIRACLE TAKES PLACE.

NOT NEXT WEEK, NOT NEXT

YEAR, NOT YESTERDAY, BUT

TODAY, NOW.

SO WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

AND WE'RE GOING TO AGREE

TOGETHER RIGHT NOW ON THIS

PROGRAM, FOR YOU.

FATHER, HOW WE THANK YOU FOR

THE MIRACLES THAT

CONTINUOUSLY TAKE PLACE.

NOT BECAUSE OF US, BUT

BECAUSE OF YOUR GRACE.

BECAUSE OF YOUR POWER.

LORD, WE HAVEN'T BEGUN TO

TOUCH THE HEM OF YOUR

GARMENT, EVEN THE SLIGHTEST

INCLINATION OF HOW POWERFUL

YOU ARE.

BUT, GOD, ALL OVER THIS

AUDIENCE THERE ARE PEOPLE.

THERE ARE PEOPLE RIGHT NOW,

YOU'VE GOT DEFORM

DEFORMITIES OF YOUR LEGS,

YOU'VE GOT TWISTED KNEES,

YOU'VE GOT SWELLING IN YOUR

ANG CULLSANKLES, YOU'VE GOT

ARTHRITIS IN YOUR NECK,

YOU'VE GOT SCOLIOSIS ALL

OVER YOUR BODY, AND RIGHT

NOW THE LORD GOD, YOUR HOST,

IS HEALING YOU NOW IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

TOUCH!

AND MAY THE POWER OF GOD

BRING COMPLETE HEALING.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, I WANT YOU

TO RAISE YOUR HANDS AND

START THANKING GOD.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, EVEN AS WE WERE

READING AMANDA'S STORY ABOUT

HER SPINE, AND YOU SAID, OH,

GOD, I NEED A TOUCH FROM

YOU.

AND GOD IS DOING THAT.

YOU'VE ALMOST BEEN

INCAPACITATED BY SPINAL

PROBLEMS, AND GOD IS

TOUCHING YOUR BODY NOW.

Pat: RAISE YOUR HANDS

AND PRAISE THE LORD.

GOD IS ANSWERING YOUR

PRAYER.

WHATEVER THE PROBLEM IS,

GIVE IT TO HIM AND RECEIVE

AN ANSWER IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

JUST LIFT UP YOUR HANDS.

PEOPLE ALL OVER, YOU'VE GOT

ALL KINDS OF STUFF GOING ON

WITH YOUR SKELETON AND YOUR

BONES.

THE LORD HAS JUST HEALED

YOU.

JUST BEGIN TO THANK HIM AND

PRAISE HIM.

OKAY.

ON MONDAY ON THIS PROGRAM,

WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THE

BIGGEST THREAT FACING

AMERICA.

IT IS NOT TERRORISM.

YOU'LL BE SURPRISED WHAT IT

IS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM ISAIAH 54: "NO

WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU

SHALL PROSPER."

BY THE WAY, OUR PRAYERS

GOING TO THOSE IN NEW

ENGLAND.

GOD IS GOING TO SUSTAIN YOU

IN THE MIDST OF THIS SEVERE

STORM THAT IS COMING.

GOD BLESS YOU.

SEE YOU MONDAY.

BYE-BYE.
