Mike and Chris Reis are a dynamic father and son speaking team motivating people to live selflessly. Plus, Radha experiences a crisis of faith when her Hindu upbringing clashes with American Christianity. Read Transcript


Lee: ONE OF THE

GUTSIEST PLAYS IN SUPER

BOWL HISTORY.

HOW IT CHANGED THE COURSE OF

ONE GAME, A CITY, AND THE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A

FATHER AND SON.

*

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

ALARMING DEVELOPMENTS OUT OF

THE EAST.

NORTH KOREA HAS DE DELT

DETONATED ANOTHER NUCLEAR

EXPLOSION.

THE SOUTH SAYS IT IS ABOUT

HALF THE SIZE THAT BLEW UP

HIROSHIMA.

THEY CLAIM THEIR MISSILES

MIGHT HIT SAN FRANCISCO.

WE'RE LOOKING AT SERIOUS

PROBLEMS IN OUR WORLD WHEN

CRAZIES, LIKE THE NORTH

KOREAN DICTATORSHIP AND THE

IRANIAN DICTATORSHIP ARE IN

POSSESSION OF THESE WEAPONS

OF MASS DESTRUCTION.

AND HOW THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO

HANDLE IT, WE DON'T KNOW.

THEY ISSUE THE USUAL

APPALLING, "WE THINK THIS IS

APPALLING," BUT THEY DON'T

EVEN DO ANYTHING.

THE CHINESE EVEN REBUKED THE

KOREANS OF WHAT THEY HAVE

DONE.

KEEP IT IN MIND WHEN WE TALK

ABOUT THE DOMESTIC POLITICS,

THE INTERNATIONAL SITUATION,

THE POT IS BOILING.

FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA, IT IS

BACK TO JOB ONE TONIGHT.

HE IS GOING TO BE GIVING THE

STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS.

HE IS GOING TO BE TALKING

ABOUT JOBS, THE ECONOMY, AND

GOVERNMENT SPENDING.

TERRY?

Terry: THE PRESIDENT

HAS AN AMBITIOUS AGENDA FOR

AMERICA, AND HE IS TELLING

US HOW HE PLANS TO GET IT

DONE.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IN HIS

INAUGURAL ADDRESS, THE

PRESIDENT PAINTED BROAD

STROKES OF HIS VISION FOR

HIS SECOND TERM.

TONIGHT HE IS OFFERING

DETAILS.

HIS MOST URGENT CALL WILL BE

FOR CONGRESS TO AVERT THE

SO-CALLED SEQUESTER, THE

AUTOMATIC DEEP SPENDING CUTS

TO THE MILITARY AND OTHER

PROGRAMS SET TO TAKE EFFECT

IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

THE FIRST WEEKS HAVE BEEN

DOMINATED TO REFORM

IMMIGRATION AND REDUCE GUN

VIOLENCE, THE NATIONAL

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE CONTINUES

TO HOVER AROUND 8%.

TONIGHT WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIALS WILL CREATE A PLAN

TO CREATE MORE JOBS.

THE PRESIDENT UNDERSTANDS

WE HAVE WORK TO DO ON THE

ECONOMY.

WE ARE NOT DONE, NOT EVEN

CLOSE.

WE NEED IT TO GROW FASTER

AND TO CREATE MORE

EXPWROBS.

Reporter JOBS.

Reporter: THE PRESIDENT

WILL CALL ON REPUBLICANS TO

RAISE SOME TAXES AND CUT

SOME LOOPHOLES, AND HE IS

EXPECTED TO EXPAND ON HIS

PLAN TO ADDRESS CLIMATE

CHANGE.

INSTEAD OF DOING BATTLE WITH

THE CONGRESS HIMSELF, EXPECT

THE PRESIDENT TO USE HIS

BULLY PIT TO RALLY CONGRESS,

USING A TOOL HE HAS

MASTERED, SOCIAL MEDIA.

President Obama: THERE

WE GO, MY TWEET HAS BEEN

POSTED.

Reporter: 100 PEOPLE

WHO FOLLOW THE PRESIDENT ON

SOCIAL MEDIA HAVE BEEN

INVITED TO THE WHITE HOUSE

TO WATCH THE SPEECH.

MEANWHILE, THE WHITE HOUSE

WILL STREAM A SPECIAL

VERSION OF THE PRESIDENT'S

ADDRESS ON LINE, COMPLETE

WITH GRAPHICS AND SUPPORTING

INFORMATION.

THE PRESIDENT WILL HAVE

TROUBLE PASSING NEARLY EVERY

PIECE OF HIS AGENDA THROUGH

THE DIVIDED CONGRESS.

HOWEVER, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS ALREADY

DEMONSTRATED A WILLINGNESS

TO TAKE EXECUTIVE ACTION

WHENEVER POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE

ITS GOALS.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Pat: I THINK WE HAVE TO

POINT OUT THAT IT WAS THE

PRESIDENT'S INTRANSIGENCE IN

THE NEGOTIATIONS A YEAR AGO

HAVING TO DO WITH THE BUDGET

THAT LED TO THIS SEQUESTER.

THE REPUBLICANS SAID, OKAY,

WE'LL JUST HOLD YOUR FEET TO

THE FIRE.

YOU SAY YOU WANT TO CUT A

TRILLION DOLLARS IN THE NEXT

10 YEARS IN SPENDING, WELL,

WE'RE GOING TO SEQUESTER THE

MONEY SO IT WILL NOT BE

AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO SPEND.

INSTEAD OF GE GETTING DOWN

WITH THE ADMINISTRATION AND

SAYING, LET'S CUT A LITTLE

HERE AND A LITTLE THERE AND

ADJUST THINGS HERE, HE

REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING.

HE STONEWALLED THEM.

NOW THE SEQUESTER IS UPON

HIM IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

DEEP CUTS IN MANY PROGRAMS,

AND HE IS SCREAMING IT WAS

SOME REPUBLICAN PLOT.

WELL, IT JUST ISN'T.

IT WAS CAUSED BY HIM.

AND NOW HE HAS GOT TO

NEGOTIATE AND HE STILL

REFUSES TO DO IT.

HE IS GOING TO GO OUT AND

START MAKING ALL OF THESE IN

INFLAMMATORY SPEECHES.

THIS ISN'T THE DEAL TO GET A

DEAL DONE.

WE'LL HAVE AN INTERVIEW WITH

FLORIDA SENATOR MAR MARCO

RUBIO TOMORROW.

AND LEE WEBB HAS THE SENATE

STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

Lee: THE SENATE ARMS

COMMITTEE IS GOING AHEAD

WITH A VOTE ON CHUCK HAGEL.

CARL LEVIN HAS REJECTED

REPUBLICAN DEMANDS FOR MORE

INFORMATION FROM HAGEL.

TO REPUBLICANS ON THAT

COMMITTEE, AND LINDSEY

GRAHAM FROM SOUTH CAROLINA,

HAVE THREATENED TO STOP

HAGEL'S NOTION.

SENATE MAJORITY LEADER HARRY

REID WANTS A FULL SENATE

VOTE ON HAGEL WEDNESDAY OR

THURSDAY.

PAT, HOW DO YOU THINK THIS

IS GOING TO TURN OUT?

Pat: I THINK HE IS

GOING TO GET CONFIRMED.

IT MAKES YOU SICK AT YOUR

STOMACH.

THE DEMOCRATS DID NOT

HESITATE TO KNOCK DOWN SOME

OF THE APPOINTMENTS THAT

GEORGE BUSH MADE.

YOU SAY THE PRESIDENT HAS

THE PRIVILEGE OF PUTTING IN

HE WANTS -- THAT'S TRUE.

BUT HE HAS THE ADVICE OF THE

SENATE.

WE'RE ACTING LIKE THAT

DOESN'T APPLY IF THE SENATE

HAS SOME BOYS.

BUT HAGEL IS NOT QUALIFIED.

NOT ONLY BY HIS VIEWS, BUT

WE'RE GOING INTO AN

EXTRAORDINARILY DANGEROUS

PERIOD IN OUR WORLD.

WE HAVE TWO ROGUE STATES

THAT ARE ALMOST IN THE

POSSESSION OF NUCLEAR

DEVICES.

WE HAVE HOT SPOTS IN

AFGHANISTAN AND SYRIA AND

LATIN-AMERICA, ETC.

THEY'RE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

AND WHAT IS THIS MAN GOING

TO DO?

HE DOESN'T HAVE THE

TRAINING, THE EXPERIENCE TO

RUN A MAJOR ORGANIZATION.

I JUST ASK YOU, WHAT

CORPORATION IN AMERICA WOULD

VOTE A C.E.O. IN WITH NO

BUSINESS EXPERIENCE?

WHO WOULD DO IT?

WELL, YOU SAY NOBODY WOULD

DO IT.

IT WOULD BE CRAZY.

WELL, WE'RE GETTING READY TO

DO IT IN THE UNITED STATES.

Lee: PRESIDENT OBAMA

CALLS NORTH KOREA'S THIRD

NUCLEAR TEST HIGHLY

PROVOCATIVE.

THE WHITE HOUSE RELEASED A

STATEMENT AFTER THEY

DETONATED A NUCLEAR DEVICE

UNDERGROUND.

THEY ESTIMATED THAT THE

EXPLOSION WAS 6 TO 7

KILLITONS, ABOUT HALF AS

POWERFUL AT THE ATOMIC BOMB

THE U.S. DROPPED ON

HIROSHIMA IN 1945.

IT COULD MEAN THE REGIME IS

CLOSER TO BUILDING A NUCLEAR

BOMB SMALL ENOUGH TO BE

FITTED ON A MISSILE THAT

COULD REACH THE U.S.

THE ACTION DEFIES THE U.S.

POLICY TO SHUT DOWN NUCLEAR

FACILITIES.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS IT

UNDERMINES REGIONAL

FACILITY.

NORTH KOREA SAYS IT WAS

MERELY ITS FIRST RESPONSE TO

WHAT IT CALLS U.S. THREATS.

IT COMES A DAY AFTER ISRAELI

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU WARNED THAT IRAN

MAY BE GETTING CLOSER TO

BUILDING A NUCLEAR BOMB.

HE SAYS IRAN IS INSTALLING

NEW SENTRIFUGES THAT COULD

CUT BY A THIRD THE TIME IT

TAKES.

Pat: I LEARNED THAT

KOREA TOTAL GROSS DOMESTIC

PRODUCT WAS IN EXCESS OF

$30 BILLION, WHICH IS

NOTHING, AND THEY WERE

SPENDING AT LEAST ONE-THIRD

OF THEIR TOTAL BUDGET ON

MILITARY.

NOW, WHO ARE THEY TRYING TO

DEFEND AGAINST?

WHO ARE THEY TRYING TO

FIGHT?

THE SOUTH DOESN'T HAVE ANY

DESIGNS ON INVADING NORTH

KOREA.

SO WHO IS THERE ENEMY?

THE UNITED STATES CERTAINLY

DOESN'T WANT TO FOOL WITH

THEM.

BUT THEY'RE BUILDING A

NUCLEAR DEVICE.

AND THIS THING COULD

INCINERATE SAN FRANCISCO.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A ROCKET

THAT THEY'RE BUILDING THAT

COULD HAVE THE POTENTIAL OF

HITTING THE UNITED STATES,

AND THEY'RE MAKING A SMALL

NUKE.

AND IT WOULD GO ON THE WAR

HEAD.

IT'S JUST FRIGHTENING TO

THINK WHAT KIND OF BLACKMAIL

THEY WOULD USE OVER THE

UNITED STATES AND OVER THE

OTHER NATIONS, AND

ESPECIALLY SOUTH KOREA.

WHAT WOULD THEY DO?

WHAT WOULD SOUTH KOREA DO IF

THE NORTH SAID, WELL, WE'RE

GOING TO NUKE SEOUL?

WE WILL NUKE PUSON?

WHAT WOULD WE DO ABOUT

THAT?

AND HOW WOULD WE HANDLE THIS

SITUATION?

WOULD WE GO ON A MILITARY

STRIKE AGAINST THEM.

APPARENTLY WE HAVE EVERY

SANCTION IN THE WORLD AND IT

HAS NO IMPACT WHATSOEVER.

AS LONG AS CHINA CONTINUES

TO LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN TO

HAVE TRADE WITH NORTH

KOREA.

SO UNLESS CHINA WILL SHUT

THEM DOWN, THE SANCTIONS ARE

NOT WORKING.

I WAS IN KOREA, I WAS WITH

THE MARINES DURING THE

KOREAN WAR.

IT IS NOT A VERY HOSPITABLE

COUNTRY, BUT WE DIDN'T DO IT

RIGHT.

WE ARE SUFFERING THE COSTS

OF A FLAWED POLITICAL

POLICY, LED PARTLY BY THE

STATE DEPARTMENT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.

LEE?

Lee: LET THE GUESSING

GAME BEGIN.

VATICAN-WATCHERS ARE TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT WHO WILL

SUCCEED POPE BENEDICT XVI.

HE SURPRISED JUST ABOUT

EVERYONE WITH THE

ANNOUNCEMENT HE IS STEPPING

DOWN AT THE END OF THE

MONTH.

MANY CATHOLICS WANT TO SEE A

YOUNGER FACE AND ONE FROM A

DIFFERENT PART OF THE

WORLD.

Reporter: THE VATICAN

WILL HOLD A CONCLAVE BEFORE

EASTER TO ELECT A NEW POPE.

ABOUT 115 CARDINALS WILL

VOTE TO DECIDE WHO WILL LEAD

THE WORLD'S 1 BILLION ROMAN

CATHOLICS.

THE CARDINALS ARE GOING

TO HAVE TO WEIGH EXPERIENCE

AND THE NEED FOR A CERTAIN

LEVEL OF ENERGY.

ANCHELLO SCOLA, AND MARK

Q UELLETEARE U ET ARE UP

FOR SUCCESS SESSION.

AND LONG SHOTS ARE TIMOTHY

DOLAN OF NEW YORK.

HE IS POPULAR AND SUPPORTS

THE POPE'S CONSERVATIVE

STANCE.

SEVERAL NAMES ARE SURFACING

FROM ASIA, AFRICA, AND

LATIN-AMERICA, INCLUDING

CARDINAL LEONARDO SANTA.

IT IS THE FIRST TIME IN

CENTURIES THAT THE CARDINALS

WILL CONSIDER A POPE WHILE

THE PRESENT ONE IS STILL

ALIVE.

POPE BENEDICT XVI HAS SLOWED

DOWN CONSIDERABLY IN RECENT

YEARS.

HE HAS CERTAINLY SLOWED

DOWN A BIT.

YOU CAN TELL HE HAD TROUBLE

NEGOTIATING STEPS.

HE STARTED USING THE CANE

SEVERAL MONTHS AGO.

Reporter: IN HIS

ANNOUNCEMENT, THE POPE SAID,

QUOTE,"I HAVE HAD TO

RECOGNIZE MY INCAPACITY TO

ADEQUATELY FULFILL THE

MINISTRY ENTRUSTED TO ME."

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Lee: IT WOULD BE A HUGE

MOVE IF THEY DECIDED TO GO

WITH A BISHOP FOR GHANA.

Pat: IT WOULD BE

REMARKABLE.

BUT I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED

IF THEY DID IT.

THEY USUALLY GO WITH SOME

OLD ITALIAN.

POPE JOHN PAUL II WAS

ITALIAN, AND POPE BENEDICT

XVI WAS GERMAN.

THIS POPE IS A WONDERFUL

SCHOLAR AND TEACHER, AND I

THINK HE HAS BLESSED THE

CHURCH AND BLESSED

CHRISTIANITY.

HIS PREDECESSOR WAS DEEPLY

LOVED.

I HAD A CHANCE TO MEET WITH

HIM IN NEW YORK.

HE IS JUST A MARVELOUS MAN.

BUT THEY ALMOST KILLED HIM.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE THE

SCHEDULE THEY HAD THAT POOR

MAN ON.

HE WORKED AND WORKED AND

WORKED NIGHT AND DAY, AND HE

WAS JUST EXHAUSTED.

YOU COULD SEE AT THE END OF

HIS LIFE HE WAS JUST TOTALLY

OUT OF IT.

WHAT THEY -- THE STRAINS OF

THAT OFFICE, IT IS

ENORMOUS.

EVERY DAY YOU HAVE GOT

MEETINGS WITH PEOPLE AND

HANDSHAKING, AND YOU GO OUT

AND HAVE ALL OF THESE HUGE

PUBLIC AFFAIRS, YOU HAVE TO

MAKE SPEECHES AND MINISTRIES

AND SERMONS.

I ADMIRE THIS POPE FOR

SAYING, LOOK, MY BODY AND MY

MIND WON'T STAND IT ANY

LONGER.

I'M TOO OLD AND I'M TOO

TIRED, AND I'VE GOT TO

RETIRE.

GOD BLESS HIM.

PRAY THE CARDINALS WILL HAVE

THE WISDOM OF THE LORD IN

THE NEXT ELECTION.

Lee: PAT, THE MEDICAL

EXAMINER AND POLICE ARE

INVESTIGATING THE DEATH OF A

PREGNANT WOMAN IN MARYLAND.

IT IS BELIEVED SHE WAS

UNDERGOING A LATE ABORTION

AT 33 WEEKS.

SIDEWALK COUNSELLORS SAY

THEY SPOKE WITH THE WOMAN

SEVERAL TIMES LAST WEEK AS

SHE VISITED AN ABORTION

CLINIC.

PRO-LIFE GROUPS IN MARYLAND

ARE ASKING THE STATE BOARD

OF PHYSICIANS TO REVOKE THE

LICENSE OF HER DOCTOR, AND

THEY'RE ASKING THE STATE TO

REVOKE HER CLINIC'S

LICENSE.

FIVE STATES PROHIBIT IT IN

THE THIRD TRIMESTER.

HEAVY FIGHTING BROKE OUT

THIS WEEKEND IN MALI BETWEEN

GOVERNMENT TROOPS AND

ISLAMIC REBELS.

THAT MEANS THOUSANDS OF

MALIANS DISPLACED BY WAR

WILL REMAIN HOMELESS A WHILE

LONGER.

BUT CBN'S "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS THERE, BRINGING

THEM HELP IN THEIR TIME OF

CRISIS.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY

FROM MALI'S CAPITAL.

Reporter: AMINA WAS

PLANNING TO RETURN HOME TO

GOA.

HER HOPES ARE NOW DASHED

BECAUSE ISLAMIC MILITANTS

ARE BACK, FIGHTING MALIAN

TROOPS THERE.

SHE IS A CHRISTIAN WHO FLED

GOA THE ISLAMISTS ARRIVED.

SHE TOLD US, THEY SAID THEY

HAD DEFEATED JESUS, BUT THAT

IS A LIE.

SHE AND OTHERS HAVE FOUND

REFUGE IN THE CAPITAL CITY

OF GOSHU.

EACH OF THEM HAVE STORIES OF

TRAGEDY TO TELL.

VERY SAD STORIES, AND

THEY'RE IN GREAT NEED,

ESPECIALLY FOR FOOD AND

OTHER SUPPLIES.

WORKERS WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING" ARE NOW ON THE

GROUND IN MALI.

PROVIDING THESE REFUGEES

BEANS AND RICE.

WHILE THEY FOUND SHELTER AT

SOME LOCAL CHURCHES, THEYñ

STILL NEED NUTRITIOUS

MEALS.

MORE THAN A QUARTER OF A

MILLION MALIANS ARE

INTERNALLY DISPLACED, AND

THOUSANDS MORE ARE REFUGEES

IN NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES.

ABRAHAM SESSIS SAYS ISLAMIC

MILITANTS WOULD HAVE KILLED

HIM IF HE HADN'T LEFT

TIMBUKTU.

HE IS THANK YOU FOR CBN AND

CARING AMERICA'S.

I AM GRATEFUL.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH,

"OPERATION BLESSING."

AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Lee: SO AS THE STRUGGLE

TO LIBERATE MALI OF ARMED

MILITANTS, CBN AND OTHER

CHRISTIANS ARE HELPING THOSE

WHO HAVE FLED THE FIGHTING,

DEMONSTRATING THE LOVE OF

CHRIST TO MALIANS, LIKE

LITTLE SARAH HERE, WHO WON'T

BE RETURNING HOME ANY TIME

SOON.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS, PAMAKO,

MALI.

Lee: YOU MENTIONED

EARLIER THE DANGERS THAT OUR

WORLD FACES WITH NORTH KOREA

AND IRAN, BUT THE NORTHERN

HALF OF THE CONTINENT OF

AFRICA POSSESS A GREAT

THREAT AS WELL.

Pat: IT IS IT LACK

ISLAM AND ITS LAW.

EVERY TIME YOU LOOK UP,

THESE ARE ANGRY PEOPLE.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE IT IS

DEMONIC TO KILL AND MAIM AND

DESTROY AND TO BLOW

THEMSELVES UP.

IT IS A RELIGION OF

CAYSIOS.

CAYCAY -- CHAOS.

I HARDLY THINK TO CALL IT A

RELIGION.

IT IS AN ECONOMIC AND

POLITICAL SYSTEM WITH A

RELIGIOUS VENEER.

WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE DOING

IS SAYING WE'RE ISLAMIC

MILITANTS.

AND WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO

DO?

THEY'RE TRYING TO KILL OTHER

PEOPLE.

WHY ARE THEY KILLING THEM?

BECAUSE THEY DON'T AGREE

WITH THEM.

IT IS VICIOUS, AND THE

SUFFERING IS ENORMOUS.

AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF WAR

ARE HORRIBLE.

WAR IS A TERRIBLE THING.

IT DESTROYS THE STRUCTURES

OF SOCIETY, KILLS AND MAIMS

AND DAMAGES THE LIVES OF

COUNTLESS THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

LEAVES SUFFERING AND

HEARTACHE IN ITS WAKE.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE SEEING

THERE IN MALI.

WE APPRECIATE THE FRENCH

COMING IN AS THEY DID.

THEY WERE VERY BOLD IN THIS

REGARD, TO COME IN AND TRY

TO BRING ORDER AND TO GET

RID OF THOSE MILITANTS WHO

WERE CAUSING SO MUCH

TROUBLE.

AND I'M GLAD THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" CAN DO SOMETHING

TO HELP THE POOR AND THE

SUFFERING.

SO IF YOU WANT TO

PARTICIPATE, AND THERE IS A

GREAT DEAL OF NEED, YOU CAN

CALL 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

THIS IS THE DISASTER RELIEF

EFFORT OF "OPERATION

BLESSING," AND THIS IS JUST

ONE OF THE WAYS THAT WE'RE

HELPING PEOPLE ALL OVER THE

WORLD WHO ARE SUFFERING AND

IN NEED.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

BIBLICAL PROPHECY COMING TO

PASS IN ISRAEL.

PROPHETS PROMISED THAT

THE CHURCH WOULD REBUILT,

AND THE JEWISH CITIES AND

THE JEWISH TOWNS, AND THAT

IS WHAT IS HAPPENING.

Terry: THE LAW THAT IS

DEMANDING THESE JEWS MOVE

FROM THEIR HOME AFTER THIS.

AND LATER ON, SUPER BOWL

HERO CHRIS REEVES TALKS

ABOUT THE RECOVERY THAT LED

THE NEW ORLEANS' SAINTS TO

VICTORY IN 2010.

Pat: IT'S "THE 700

CLUB," THANK YOU FOR BEING

WITH US.

THE WORLD CALLS IT THE WEST

BANK.

BUT THE 350,000 WHO LIVE

THERE STILL USE ITS BIBLICAL

NAME, JE JUDEA AND

SOMARIA.

THE UNITED NATIONS CALLS

THESE SO-CALLED SETTLERS ARE

AN ABS CU OBSTACLE TO

MIDEAST PEACE.

Reporter: HALF A

MILLION ISRAELIS UPROOTED

FROM THEIR HOMES.

ACCORDING TO A RECENT U.N.

REPORT, INTERNATIONAL LAW

DEMANDS SUCH A MOVE.

THE REPORT CALLED FOR ISRAEL

TO EVACUATE ALL EXISTING

SETTLEMENTS AND DISMANTTEL

JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN THE

EASTERN HALF OF JERUSALEM.

THE U.N. CONSIDERS ALL THESE

NEIGHBORHOODS AS ILLEGAL

PROVINCES.

IT MOUNTS AGAINST ISRAEL BY

THE DAY, INCLUDING TOUGH

WORDS FROM THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

YET ON A RECENT TOUR OF

JUDEA AND SOMARIA, CBN NEWS

FOUND A MUCH DIFFERENT

PICTURE THAT WHAT IS OFTEN

PORTRAYED IN THE MEDIA AND

WORLD FORUMS.

THE POPULATION IS

GROWING, FOUR TIMES GREATER

AND FIVE TIMES LATER THAN

THE NATIONAL AVERAGE IN

ISRAEL.

Reporter: DAVID IS

SPOKESMAN FOR THE SHAROM

REA REGIONAL COUNCIL IN

ISRAEL.

HE SAYS FAMILY-FRIENDLY

COMMUNITIES, FRESH AIR, AND

LAND AT AFFORDABLE PRICES

ARE THE REASONS THEY'RE

MOVING.

YOUNG FAMILIES WHO WISH

TO ESTABLISH THEMSELVES AND

RAISE CHILDREN, LOOK AROUND

AND SAY WHERE CAN THEY GET A

GOOD EDUCATION.

IT IS UP HERE ON THE

MOUNTAIN, WE HAVE GREAT

WEATHER, IT IS COOL IN THE

SUMMER.

THE PROPHETS HAVE PROMISED

TO RETURN AND REBUILD THESE

JEWISH TOWNS AND THAT IS

WHAT IS HAPPENING.

Reporter: WHILE HE IS

AN OBSERVANT JEW, 60% OF

THOSE LIVING IN SOMARIA ARE

SECULAR.

THIS IS THE REGIONAL

EDUCATION HUB, AND THE

16,000 STUDENTS COME FROM

ALL OVER ISRAEL.

ARAB STUDENTS HERE ARE FREE

TO WEAR MUSLIM RELIGIOUS

ATTIRE AND THEY STUDY

ALONGSIDE JEWS.

WE FOUND A SIMILAR STORY IN

THE INDUSTRIAL PARK, HOME TO

150 BUSINESSES, WHERE

ISRAELIS WORK SIDE BY SIDE

WITH THEIR PALESTINIAN

NEIGHBORS.

AN ARAB WORKING IN THESE

BUSINESSES, IN THESE

FACTORIES, MAKES DOUBLE, OR

THREE TIMES AS MUCH IN SOME

CASES, AS HE WOULD MAKE

WORKING FOR THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY.

AND THE ABILITY TO MOVE UP

THE LADDER INTO A

SUPERVISORY OR MANAGEMENT

POSITION.

BUT THE JEWISH COMMUNITIES

OF SOMARIA ARE FREQUENT

TARGETS FOR TERRORIST

ATTACKS.

IN THE SOMARIAN TOWN OF

ITIMAR WAS WASN'T HORRIBLE

EXAMPLE.

THEY WERE MURDERED IN THREE

SLEEP.

FURTHER SOUTH, THE SITUATION

IS ALSO DIFFICULT.

DURING THE SECOND INTI

FATAH, WE WERE SHOT AT FOR

TWO AND A HALF YEARS.

Reporter: THE CITY,

WHICH IS MOSTLY PALESTINIAN

ARAB IS HOME TO JUD JUDAISM

SECOND HOLIEST SITE.

ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB,

SARAH, LEAH, THE MATE

MATRIARCHS ARE ALL BURIED

HERE.

YOU CANNOT LET TERRORISM

DETERMINE HOW YOU LIVE OR

WHERE YOU LIVE.

IF YOU KNOW THIS IS YOUR

HOME AND THIS IS WHERE

YOU'VE SUPPOSED TO BE, WHAT

WOULD BE MORE NORMAL.

Reporter: IN

WITHDRAWING, ISRAEL WOULD

NOT ONLY GIVING UP A HUGE

PART OF ITS PAST, IT COULD

BE HARMING ITS FUTURE.

GOD FORBIDDEN HAMAS

TERRORISTS WOULD BE STANDING

HERE AND THEY WOULD BE

BASICALLY IN TOTAL CONTROL.

THEY WOULDN'T NEED

LONG-RANGE MISSILES.

THEY COULD REACH EVERY TOWN

AND CITY IN THIS AREA.

Reporter: ULI IS A

MEMBER OF PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU'S

CABINET.

HE LIVES NOT FAR FROM

JERUSALEM, IN ANOTHER AREA

THE U.N. ONCE CLEARED OF

JEWS.

WITHOUT OUR TOTAL CONTROL

IN THESE AREAS, WE WON'T BE

ABLE TO RUN A NORMAL COUNTRY

HERE.

Reporter: HE TOLD CBN

THAT SOME OF THE SAME FORCES

THAT OPPOSED ISRAEL'S

PRESENCE IN THESE AREAS ARE

ALSO HOSTILE TO THE U.S.

IF THE BAD GUYS CAN DO IT

TO ISRAEL, AS A DEMOCRACY,

AND CAN TURN US INTO DEMONS

AND APARTHEID AND FASISTS,

THEY CAN DO IT TO EVERYBODY,

THE UNITED STATES INCLUDED.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA MAKES HIS FIRST VISIT

HERE IN MARCH, AND

DISCUSSIONS OF JUDEA AND

SOMARIA ARE CERTAIN TO BE ON

HIS LIST.

Pat: IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF

VISITING ARIEL.

IT IS A FABULOUS CITY.

THEY HAVE A WONDERFUL

UNIVERSITY.

THEY HAVE THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE BEING EMPLOYED.

BEAUTIFUL HOMES, LOVELY

STREETS.

I WAS SADDENED A COUPLE OF

WEEKS AGO TO LEARN THAT RON

KNOCKMAN, THE MAYOR, HAD

PASSED AWAY.

HE WAS A GRACIOUS HOST WHEN

I WAS OVER THERE.

Terry: IT IS THRIVING,

AND AS WE BOTH SAID WHEN WE

LOOKED AT IT, QUITE

BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: AND ARIEL IS

FANTASTIC.

BUT THE IDEA THAT PEOPLE WHO

HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE, KNOW

NOTHING ABOUT IT, SIT IN

SOME CONCLAVE IN BRUSSELS

AND MAKE DECREES ABOUT

TAKING THIS AWAY.

IT BELONGS TO ISRAEL.

IT WAS GIVEN TO THEM BY GOD

ALMIGHTY.

IT WAS LIVED IN BY ABRAHAM

AND ISAAC AND JACOB.

THIS IS JEWISH LAND.

THEY DON'T HAVE MUCH.

THE ARABS HAVE GIGANTIC

AREAS WITH LOTS OF OIL, BUT

THEY'VE GOT TO TAKE THAT

LITTLE, TEENY PIECE AWAY

FROM ISRAEL.

THAT WILL BE THE ULTIMATE

FIGHT, OVER JERUSALEM.

TRUST ME.

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE.

THE LAST STRONGHOLD WILL BE

BE AGAINST JERUSALEM.

AND THAT'S GOING TO BE THE

LAST BATTLE.

IT IS GOING TO BE A BIG

ONE.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, IT IS

ONE OF THE TOP 10 GREATEST

SUPER BOWL PLAYS OF THE

DECADE.

AND YOU'RE ABOUT TO MEET THE

PLAYER WHO PULLED IT OFF.

CHRISTOPHER REEVE TALKS

ABOUT THE RECOVERY OF A

LIFETIME, AND HOW IT CHANGED

HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS

FATHER AFTER THIS.

Terry: IN 2010, THE NEW

ORLEANS' SAINTS' SUPER BOWL

VICTORY GAVE THE CITY A NEW

LEASE ON LIFE.

IT ALSO SET THE STAGE FOR A

DIFFERENT KIND OF RECOVERY,

BETWEEN A SON AND HIS

FATHER.

Reporter: IT WAS

FEBRUARY 7, 2010, IN THE

THIRD QUARTER OF SUPER BOWL

44, WHERE THE INDIANAPOLIS

COLTS WERE ON TOP OF THE NEW

ORLEANS SAINTS.

ON ONE OF THE GUTSIEST PLACE

IN SUPER BOWL HISTORY, CHRIS

REEVES RECOVERED AN ON-SIDE

THROW WHICH CHANGED THE

GAME.

THE SAINTS WENT ON TO WIN

THEIR FIRST SUPER BOWL

CHAMPIONSHIP IN FRANCHISE

HISTORY.

HIS FATHER, MIKE, WHO WAS

WATCHING IN THE STANDS, HAD

TO MAKE HIS OWN RECOVERY.

IN THEIR BOOK, "RECOVERY OF

A LIFETIME," MIKE AND CHRIS

SHARE HOW THAT SUPER BOWL

PLAY WOULD CHANGE THEIR

LIVES AS FATHER AND SON

FOREVER.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" CHRIS

REEVES AND HIS DAD, MIKE.

GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE.

GREAT TO BE HERE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT YOUR STORY AND

THE BOOK THE TWO OF YOU HAVE

WRITTEN TOGETHER, BUT FIRST

LET ME ASK YOU, CHRIS, WHAT

IT WAS LIKE TO BE A PART OF

THAT INCREDIBLE PLAY -- PLAY

OF THE DECADE, MANY ARE

SAYING?

WHEN DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE

GOING FOR THE GOAL?

HE SAID, HEY, WE'RE

RUNNING AMBUSH.

Terry: AND DID YOU ALL

GO, WHAT?

I THINK OUR STOMACHS KIND

OF DROPPED.

WE QUESTIONED IT, BUT YOU'VE

GOT TO TRUST YOUR LEADER.

AND HE DIDN'T LEAD US ASTRAY

THE WHOLE SEASON.

Terry: LOOK AT THAT.

EVERY TIME I WATCH FOOTBALL

AT HOME, I THINK OF THE POOR

GUY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE

HEAP.

THAT'S ME.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T

REALIZE I'M UNDER THAT

PILE.

63 SECONDS, AND IT WAS THE

LONGEST-MINUT LONGEST

MINUTE OF MY LIFE, FOR

SURE.

Terry: I CANNOT

IMAGINE.

I WATCHED THEM PEEL OFF ONE

GUY AT A TIME.

I WAS JUST TRYING TO HOLD

ON TO THE BALL.

THAT'S ALL I WAS TRYING TO

DO.

Terry: MIKE, HERE YOU

ARE, AND YOU'RE WATCHING

THIS ON THE SIDELINE.

THAT'S A DAD'S MOMENT.

WHAT WAS GOING ON IN YOUR

MIND?

IT WAS A DREAM COME

TRUE.

FIRST OF ALL, I WATCH FOR

CHRIS.

I DON'T REALLY WATCH THE

PLAY.

I'M LOOKING ALL OVER THE

PLACE, AND I GO, WHERE IS

HE.

I CAN'T FIND HIM ANYWHERE,

SO I KNEW HE WAS AT THE

BOTTOM OF THE PILE.

Terry: AND YOU'RE

HOPING, NOT UNDER THERE.

WELL, IF HE'S UNDER

THERE, I HOPE HE HAS THE

BALL.

Terry: I WANT TO TALK

ABOUT THE RECOVERY.

THAT WAS AN AMAZING

RECOVERY, BUT THE RECOVERY

BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU.

LET ME START FOR YOU, MIKE,

IF I CAN.

BECAUSE THAT WAS A HIGH FOR

A DAD, AND TWO WEEKS LATER

YOU'RE ARRESTED FOR A

D.U.I., JAILED.

WHAT IS GOING THROUGH YOUR

MIND?

WELL, THERE WAS AN

INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF SHAME

ON MY PART.

AS YOU SAID, I BECAME A

CHRISTIAN IN 2005, BUT MY

BEHAVIOR WOULDN'T INDICATE I

WAS.

I WAS STILL DRINKING A LOT.

AND MY CHOICES WERE STILL

BAD.

AND I WAS ARRESTED.

AND IT WASN'T THE FIRST TIME

THAT I HAD BEEN ARRESTED.

AND I -- YOU KNOW, AS I WAS

ARRESTED THAT NIGHT, I

THOUGHT, I'M THE FATHER OF A

SUPER BOWL CHAMPION AND I

BEHAVE LIKE THIS?

AND SO THERE WAS A GREAT

SENSE OF SHAME.

Terry: WAS THAT A

CATALYST ACTUALLY FOR YOU TO

MOVE INTO A DIFFERENT LEVEL

OF YOUR COMMITMENT IN YOUR

WALK WITH THE LORD?

IT REALLY WAS.

I TOOK A LOOK AT CHRIS' LIFE

AND WHAT HE ACCOMPLISHED ON

AND OFF THE FIELD.

I THOUGHT, MY SON IS DOING

THIS, AND ACTUALLY LIVING

HIS FAITH.

AND THAT'S WHAT I NEED TO

DO.

SO I USED HIS LIFE AS AN

EXAMPLE TO TURN MY LIFE

AROUND.

Terry: HOW DID YOU FIND

THE LORD, CHRIS?

I MEAN, YOU GREW UP IN A

LITTLE BIT OF CHAOS.

YEAH.

I THINK MY MOM LIVED IT

OUT.

SHE SHOWED ME HOW TO LOVE,

AND I SAW HER BAPTIZED WITH

MY GREAT GRANDFATHER.

IT CAUSED ME TO SEARCH MY

FAITH AND WHO I WAS AND WHAT

MY PURPOSE WAS.

JUST SEEING HER EXAMPLE, IT

WAS AMAZING AND IT WAS

INSPIRING TO ME.

Terry: YOU KNOW, MIKE,

YOU STRUGGLE WITH A COUPLE

OF ISSUES THAT ARE BIG

ISSUES FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.

MEN AND WOMEN.

RIGHT.

Terry: SEXUAL ADDICTION

AND ALCOHOL.

AND IT IS NOT UNUSUAL,

EITHER, FOR PEOPLE TO HAVE

THE EXPERIENCE YOU HAVE,

WHERE THEY DESIRE TO KNOW

THE LORD AND THEY MAKE THAT

COMMITMENT, BUT THE CHANGE

DOESN'T COME RIGHT AWAY.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Terry: HOW DID YOU

PRESS THROUGH ALL OF THAT

AND GET TO THE

BREAKTHROUGH.

IT WAS THE MORNING AFTER

I WAS ARRESTED, AND I WAS

TAKING A SHOWER, AND, AGAIN,

SOMETHING CAME OVER ME.

I REALIZED AT THAT POINT,

WHILE I WAS TAKING A SHOWER,

I HAD NOT FULLY COMMITTED TO

GOD.

I HAD HELD ON TO A LITTLE

BIT JUST FOR ME.

I THINK AS CHRISTIANS WE DO

THAT A LOT.

WE'RE WILLING TO GIVE UP

WHATEVER IS COMFORTABLE TO

GOD.

I JUST MADE THE DECISION AT

THAT POINT THAT I HAD TO

COMPLETELY SURRENDER.

AND IT WAS THROUGH THAT

SURRENDER I GAINED ALL THIS

FREEDOM.

Terry: WAS THAT A

LITTLE SCARY?

IT WAS A LOT SCARY.

Terry: YEAH.

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

DEEPEST, DARKEST CORNERS OF

YOUR HEART AND MIND.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Terry: ESPECIALLY WHEN

YOU HAVE ADDICTIONS TO

THINGS.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO PEOPLE

WHO ARE LISTENING TO WHAT WE

ARE TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW,

WHO ARE IN THAT PLACE, AND

PROBABLY FEELING HOPELESS

FROM TIME TO TIME.

I WOULD TELL THEM IT IS

NEVER TOO LATE TO BECOME THE

PERSON THAT GOD INTENDED YOU

TO BE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU

HAVE DONE IN YOUR LIFE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW OLD

YOU ARE OR HOW YOUNG YOU

ARE.

YOU CAN STILL BE THAT

PERSON.

I WOULD TELL THEM, SURRENDER

YOUR LIFE COMPLETELY TO

CHRIST.

AND IF YOU DO THAT, AND IF

YOU TRUST GOD, EVERYTHING

WILL BE JUST FINE.

Terry: IT IS A LITTLE

BIT LIKE FREE FALLING, ISN'T

IT?

YOU'VE GOT TO JUMP OFF THE

CLIFF.

YOU'VE GOT TO JUMP.

Terry: HOW DID THE TWO

OF YOU DECIDE TO WRITE THIS

BOOK, "RECOVERY OF A

LIFETIME."

IT OUTLINES MANY SIDES, THE

FATHER AND SON RELATIONSHIP,

AND OVERCOMING ADDICTIONS --

HOW DID YOU COME TO THE

PLACE TO DO THIS?

THAT'S A LONG STORY, BUT

A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH

US THAT IT IS A CALLING.

WE NEVER DECIDED WE WANTED

TO BE AUTHORS ONE DAY WHEN

WE WOKE UP.

TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SUPER

BOWL, MY DAD WAS TELLING ME

ABOUT HIS ADDICTIONS AND THE

ARRESTS AND EVERYTHING

ELSE.

AND HE WAS LAYING IT ALL OUT

THERE.

I TOLD HIM, I FEEL LIKE I'M

SUPPOSED TO WRITE A BOOK.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M

SUPPOSED TO DO, BUT I HAVE A

TITLE, AND IT'S "RECOVERY OF

A LIFETIME."

AND MY DAD SAYS, JUST DON'T

MAKE ME LOOK BAD.

TWO YEARS LATER, GOD BROUGHT

IT BACK TO OUR VISION, AND

HE SAID, THIS IS WHAT I WANT

YOU GUYS TO DO.

HE HAD TO GET THAT RIGHT,

AND NOW WE JUST WANT TO TELL

OUR STORY AND INSPIRE PEOPLE

TO LIVE FOR MORE THAN WHAT

THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER.

THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF OUT

THERE, AND WE WANT TO GIVE

PEOPLE HOPE.

Terry: MIKE, YOU'RE

PRETTY CANDID ABOUT THE

SEXUAL ADDICTION IN THE

BOOK.

DID YOU STRUGGLE WITH HOW

MUCH DO I TALK ABOUT THIS?

A LOT.

IT'S FUNNY, IN THE COURSE OF

WRITING THE BOOK, I

DISCOVERED THAT MY SEXUAL

ADDICTION WAS PRETTY

SIGNIFICANT.

I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT THE

PROBLEM WAS PRIMARILY

ALCOHOL.

BUT AMONG SOME OTHER THINGS,

I DISCOVERED IT IS A TOPIC

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE TALK

ABOUT IT --

Terry: BUT THERE IS A

LOT OF SHAME IN THIS.

AND AS LONG AS THE ENEMY CAN

KEEP US IN THE DARK AND

HIDING --

RIGHTS.

IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE CAN

SHINE A LIGHT ON THIS

BEHAVIOR.

DON'T BE ASHAMED OF THIS.

THE ENEMY ATTACKS US IN SO

MANY WAYS.

IF YOU SHINE A LIGHT ON IT,

YOU CAN OVERCOME THIS.

Terry: MAKE GETTING

FREE THE GOAL, OR GETTING

OUT FROM UNDER A PILE.

IT IS A GREAT AND AMAZING

STORY.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "RECOVERY

OF A LIFETIME."

THERE IS A LOT IN HERE.

AS A VIEWER WARNING, I DO

WANT YOU TO KNOW IT CONTAINS

MATURE SUBJECT MATTER, SO

YOU WANT TO BE CAREFUL WHO

IS READING IT.

WE ARE ALL ABOUT GETTING

FREE IN THE LORD ON THIS

SHOW.

THANK YOU BOTH.

IT'S GREAT TO MEET YOU.

STILL AHEAD, WE HAVE YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS FROM OUR IN

BOX.

JAVIER SAYS I HAVE HEARD A

LOT OF TALK ABOUT THE OCCULT

AND THE ALUMINATTI, BUT I'M

NOT SURE WHAT THEY.

CAN YOU HELP ME UNDERSTAND

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN THE TWO?"

PAT WILL ANSWER THAT WHEN WE

COME BACK WITH "BRING IT

ON."

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA SEES

A MAJOR OBSTACLE AHEAD AS IT

PREPARES

TO PROVIDE COVERAGE

UNDER OBAMACARE.

CALIFORNIA LEADERS SAY THERE

ARE NOT ENOUGH DOCTORS TO

TREAT ALL OF THE NEWLY

INSURED PATIENTS.

SO SOME LAWMAKERS IN THAT

STATE WANT TO REDEFINE WHO

CAN PROVIDE HEALTH CARE.

THEY SAY MORE POWER SHOULD

BE GIVEN TO PHYSICIAN

ASSISTANTS, OPTOMETRISTS, AS

WELL AS PHARMACISTS.

BUT SOME DOCTORS SAY THE

MOVE COULD ENDANGER PATIENTS

AND

DRIVE UP HEALTH CARE

COST IN

THE LONG-TERM.

A PORTRAIT

OF JESUS

AT A

PUBLIC SCHOOL IN

OHIO IS NOW

THE FOCUS

OF

A FEDERAL

LAWSUIT.

THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES

FOUNDATION OF OHIO SAYS THE

PORTRAIT

VIOLATES THE

CONSTITUTION BECAUSE

IT PRO

PROMOTES RELIGION.

THEY SAY IT SHOULD

BE

REMOVED FROM THE SCHOOL.

THE SUPERINTENDENT SAYS

THE

SCHOOL BOARD WILL

TALK ABOUT

APPROPRIATE COURSES OF

ACTION AT

ITS NEXT MEETING.

SCHOOL OFFICIALS,

THOUGH,

SAY A

STUDENT GROUP DONATED

THAT

PORTRAIT, AND IT

HAS

BEEN IN THE

SCHOOL DISPLAY

SINCE

ABOUT 1947.

YOU CAN

ALWAYS

GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

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

SUBMITTED.

AND THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

JAVIER.

HE SAYS, "I'VE HEARD A LOT

OF TALK ABOUT THE OCCULT AND

THE ALUMINATI, BUT I'M NOT

SURE WHAT THEY ARE.

CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME

UNDERSTAND THIS, AND WHAT IS

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE

TWO?"

Pat: JAVIER, THAT IS A

GIG QUESTION.

BIG QUESTION, I APPRECIATE

YOU ASKING IT.

THE OCCULT HAS TO DO WITH

ALL OF THOSE SEEKING EXTRA

SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT

THROUGH FORTUNE-TELLERS,

THROUGH TAROT CARDS AND

SEANCES, THE WHOLE THING.

HAVING TO DO WITH

SPIRITISM.

ALL OF THAT IS CALLED THE

OCCULT.

THE ALUMINATI SPECIFICALLY

REFERS TO A GROUP OF PEOPLE

OPERATING ABOUT THE TIME OF

THE FRENCH REVOLUTION WHO

THOUGHT THAT THEY HAD COME

ACROSS SOME EGYPTIAN OCCULT

MATERIAL.

AND THE WHOLE IDEA OF

ALUMINATI, THEY WERE THE

ALUMINED ONES.

AND THEY HAD A SYSTEM WHAT

VERY MUCH MIRRORS MODERN-DAY

COMMUNISM, AND OTHER THINGS

WE HAVE SEEN IN OUR MODERN

WORLD.

BUT THEY ADVANCED A PROGRAM

WHICH HAD TO DO WITH

ELIMINATING PRIVATE PROPERTY

AND ELIMINATING MARRIAGE AND

ELIMINATING GOVERNMENT.

IT WAS A RADICAL TYPE OF

THING.

IT WAS THE INTELLECTUAL

FORERUNNER OF THE FRENCH

REVOLUTION.

THEY GOT INTO THE MASONS AND

IT WAS SOMETHING CALL AL

ALUMINATED INFLUENCE.

Terry: THERE ARE PEOPLE

WHO STRONGLY FEEL TODAY THAT

IS STILL AN ACTIVE GROUP.

BUT THEN THERE ARE OTHERS

WHO SAY IT IS HISTORY.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

BUT IT WENT THROUGH

COMMUNISM, WHICH IS STILL

THERE.

Terry: MARGARITA SAYS,

"I HEARD RUMORS THAT THE

THIRD TEMPLE OF ISRAEL IS

ALREADY BEING BUILT.

IS THIS TRUE?"

Pat: I HAVE HEARD THE

RUMORS, BUT I'VE BEEN THERE

AND WALKED THE TEMPLE MOUNT,

BUT IT JUST ISN'T THERE.

PEOPLE ARE BUILDING UP

STONE --

Terry: AND SOME OF THE

THINGS FOR SERVING IN THE

TEMPLE, AND THINGS LIKE

THAT.

Pat: TERRY, I READ A

TRACK TALKING ABOUT THE FACT

THAT VULTURES WERE COMING

BACK TO THE VALLEYS OF

MAGITO, AND THEY WERE READY

FOR THE FINAL BATTLE, WHERE

THEY WERE GOING TO EAT THE

FLESH OF WARRIORS.

Terry: DID YOU SEE ANY

FLESH OF WARRIORS?

Pat: SO I DROVE ALL THE

WAY TO THE VALLEY, AND I

DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING.

AND I SAW THIS BIRD, AND I

SAID, IS THAT A VULTURE?

AND THEY SAID, NO, IT IS A

STORK.

THIS TRACK WAS PURE BOLOGNA,

BUT THAT KIND OF FANTASY IS

IMPOSED ON PEOPLE TODAY.

Terry: RENEE SAYS,

"PAT, LAST WEEK YOU ANSWER A

VIEWER'S QUESTION ABOUT

REWARDS WE WILL SEE IN

HEAVEN.

PART OF IT, YOU SAID, I IT

WILL BE PART OF WHAT WE DID

HERE ON HEAVEN.

NOW I'M NOU MORE CONFUSED

AND SCARED.

AM I SAVED OR AM I

FORGIVEN?"

Pat: I'M NOT HERE TO

SCARE ANYBODY.

THE LORD SAID, HE WHO

BELIEVES MY WORD AND

BELIEVES ON HIM WHO SENT ME,

SHALL HAVE EVERLASTING

LIFE.

SHALL NOT COME INTO

JUDGMENT, BUT IS PASSED FROM

LIFE.

THE JUDGMENT IS SETTLED WHEN

YOU FIND JESUS AS SAVIOR.

BUT ACCORDING TO THE APOSTLE

PAUL, WE WILL STAND BEFORE

THE BEMA, THE JUDGMENT SEAT

OF CHRIST TO RECEIVE REWARDS

TO WHAT WE'VE DONE IN OUR

BODY.

AND WE'VE GOT TO GIVE

ACCOUNT.

IF YOU'VE BEEN SCREWING

AROUND FOR 30 YEARS, AND

YOU'VE KNOWN THE LORD, AND

YOU'RE SAVED, BUT YOU'RE

LIFE HAS NOT REFLECTED IT,

HE MIGHT -- JESUS HIMSELF

SAID HE THAT KNEW THE LORDS

WILL AND DID IT WILL BE

REWARDED.

AND HE WHO DIDN'T DO IT WILL

HAVE MANY STRIPES.

SO THERE MAY BE SOME KIND OF

PUNISHMENT IN RELATION TO

WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

BUT IT IS A LITTLE VAGUE,

AND SO DON'T BE SCARED.

THE BIG THING IS IF YOU

ACCEPTED THE LORD, YOU'RE

GOING TO BE IN HEAVEN, AND

HEAVEN IS GLORIOUS.

Terry: JERRY SAYS,

"WHAT IS YOUR BELIEF

CONCERNING THE LIFE ON OTHER

PLANETS.

IS THERE ANY BIBLICAL

REFERENCE TO THIS AND ARE

THEY OUR FRIENDS?"

Pat: WE'VE COME IN

PEACE -- NO.

THERE ARE A BUNCH OF ROCKS

RUNNING AROUND IN THE

HEAVENS.

THERE ARE A BUNCH OF GAS

BOMBS IN HEAVEN.

THERE ARE A BUNCH OF NUCLEAR

EXPLOSIONS IN THE HEAVENS.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT THE

ASTRO PHYSICISTS HAVE IT

RIGHT.

THE WHOLE CONCEPT STARTED

WITH AN INCREDIBLY DENSE

THING THAT WASN'T EVEN

MATTER.

MATTER WAS FORMED AND THEN

IT EXPLODED, AND IT IS EVER

EXPANDING.

THE UNIVERSE CONTINUES TO

EXPAND, FROM WHAT WE CAN

GATHER.

THE ASTROPHYSICISTS I

TALKED TO -- HE SAID THE

UNIVERSE WAS TUNED FOR LIFE

HERE.

THE POSSIBILITY OF LIFE ON

THIS PLANET IS

EXTRAORDINARY, ABSOLUTELY

EXTRAORDINARY.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SUN.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A MOON.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE WATER.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CERTAIN

AMOUNT OF SOIL.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE ALL OF

THESE THINGS EXACTLY RIGHT.

IT HAS TO TURN AT A

PARTICULAR WAY.

IT IS ALL SET IN TUNE FOR

LIFE.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS LIFE

ANY PLACE ELSE.

AND WHAT WE'VE FOUND IN MARS

AND THESE OTHER PLACES IS

JUST BARREN ROCKS.

SOME HOT, SOME COLD.

BUT THERE IS NOTHING THERE.

LOOK AT THE MOON.

THERE IS NOTHING THERE.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY

OTHER PLANET WITH LIFE ON

IT.

I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

SAY, GOD HAS OTHER LIVES IN

OTHER WORLDS, BUT THERE IS

NOTHING IN THE BIBLE THAT

BACKS THAT UP.

BUT APPRECIATE IT.

ENJOY THIS WORLD YOU HAVE

NOW.

THIS IS THE ONLY ONE YOU'RE

GOING TO GET.

YOU'RE IN IT.

Terry: THAT'S A GOOD

WORD.

Pat: IS THAT IT?

Terry: THAT'S IT.

Pat: BLUES.

GLUZ.

GOD BLESS YOU.

I LOVE THOSE QUESTIONS.

I HOPE I'M GIVING YOU

INTELLIGENT ANSWERS SO IT

WILL HELP YOU.

Terry: RODA WHITE CAME

TO SCHOOL ON A SCHOLARSHIP,

BUT WITH ONLY $36 TO HER

NAME, THAT'S WHEN RODA CRIED

OUT TO HIR HINDU GODS AND

GOT AN ANSWER FROM JESUS.

WHEN I WAS BORN, THE AS

AF ASTROLOGIFT IT IS NOT

IMPORTANT TO RAISE HER.

Terry: SHE WAS RAISED

IN A DEVOUT HINDU FAMILY IN

INDIA.

SHE HAD A STRAINED

RELATIONSHIP WITH HER

FATHER, ONE THAT WORSENED

OVER TIME.

EVERY BUSINESS FAILURE HE

ENDURED OR FINANCIAL LOSS,

HE BLAMED IT ON ME.

HE BECAME AN ALCOHOLIC, AND

HE ABUSED US PHYSICALLY AND

VERBALLY.

Reporter: SHE SOUGHT

COMFORT AND ACCEPTANCE IN

HER FAMILY'S FAITH.

EVERY TIME I WENT TO

HINDU TEMPLES AND WORSHIPPED

GOD, IT WAS A FEAST.

BUT WHEN I CAME OUT OF THE

TEMPLES, THERE WAS ALWAYS A

VOID.

AND THAT VOID WAS SO

STRONG.

HOPELESSNESS WAS ALWAYS

THERE.

Reporter: RODA TURNED

TO EDUCATION IN HER SEARCH

FOR PURPOSE.

HER EXCELLED IN HER

STUDIES.

I DID MY MASTERS IN

MEDICAL AND PSYCHIATRIC AND

SOCIAL WORK.

AFTER I COMPLETED THAT, I

WAS GIVEN A JOB TO WORK AS A

COUNSELLOR IN A CANCER

HOSPITAL.

Reporter: SHE PROVIDED

CARE AND COMFORT FOR MANY OF

THE PATIENTS.

HOWEVER, THIS ONLY DEEPENED

THE EMPTINESS SHE FELT IN

HER OWN LIFE.

PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING,

YOU KNOW, YOUNG AND OLD.

SOME OF THEM HAD ASKED ME,

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THEIR

SOUL ONCE THEY DIED.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY ANSWERS.

I FELT REALLY DESPERATE.

SO I KIND OF FILLED MY VOID

WITH MORE EDUCATION.

Reporter: RODA RECEIVED

A SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY IN

AMERICA, BUT LIFE HERE

SEEMED HARDER THAN EVER.

THE CULTURE SHOCK WAS SO

GREAT.

I MISSED HOME, MY FAMILY.

I COULDN'T CONCENTRATE

MUCH.

AND MY GRADES STARTED GOING

DOWN.

Reporter: SHE WAS ON

THE VIRGE OF LOSING HER

SCHOLARSHIP, BUT SHE HAD A

GREATER PROBLEM.

I HAD ONLY $36 IN MY

ACCOUNT, AND MY SOCIAL

SECURITY CARD WAS STAMPED,

NOT AUTHORIZED FOR WORK.

Reporter: IT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE FOR RODA TO PAY

FOR HER OWN EDUCATION, AND

H SHE BECAUSE UNABLE TO

AFFORD A PLANE TICKET BACK

TO INDIA.

THE FEAR OF HOMELESSNESS

TOOK OVER.

I WAS REALLY AFRAID OF

THE FUTURE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING

TO HAPPEN TO ME IN THIS

FOREIGN LAND.

Reporter: RODA SOUGHT

HELP FROM THE ONLY SOURCE

SHE USED.

I CRIED OUT TO ALL OF THE

GODS, WHICH OF YOU IS THE

TRUE GOD SO I CAN CRY TO ONE

OF YOU.

I AM CRYING TO ALL OF YOU.

I HEARD, THESE ARE MAN-MADE

IMAGES, AND I'M A HOLY

CHURCH.

HE SAID GO TO CHURCH AND YOU

WILL FIND ME.

I SAID NO WAY.

THAT COULDN'T BE TRUE.

I REJECTED THE THOUGHT.

BUT IN MY DESPERATION, WHEN

THE THOUGHT WAS SO STRONG, I

NEEDED AN ANSWER.

Reporter: A FELLOW

STUDENT INVITED HER TO

CHURCH.

I SAT IN THE LAST SEAT,

AND I STARTED LISTENING TO

THEM WORSHIPPING.

THERE WAS SUCH JOY IN MY

HEART THAT I COULDN'T

EXPLAIN.

THERE WAS PEACE IN MY

HEART.

THE PASTOR SAID THAT GOD

WANTS TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH ME.

AS A FATHER-DAUGHTER

RELATIONSHIP, ALL I HAVE TO

DO IS JUST REPENT FOR MY

SINS, INVITE JESUS AS MY

LORD AND SAVIOR.

I WAS A PRIDE-FILLED

PERSON.

I SAID THERE IS NO WAY I'M A

SINNER.

I'M A GOOD PERSON.

I'M A GOOD SOCIAL WORKER.

I'VE HELPED HUNDREDS OF

PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: SHE REFUSED

THE PASTOR'S INVITATION.

OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, SHE

WRESTLED WITH THESE

THOUGHTS.

BUT ONE NIGHT SHE HAD A

VISION.

WHEN I LAID DOWN AND

TRIED TO SLEEP, IT WAS LIKE

A MOVIE, ALL OF THE THINGS

THAT ARE NOT RIGHT IN THE

EYES OF GOD.

WHEN I SAW THAT, THE THINGS

THAT ARE WRONG AND SINFUL IN

THE EYES OF GOD, THEN I

SHOULD ASK FOR FORGIVENESS.

SO I GOT ON MY KNEES BY MY

BED, AND I SAID, GOD, I ASK

FOR YOUR FORGIVENESS.

AND I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT

JESUS, BUT I INVITE HIM AS

MY ONLY LORD AND SAVIOR.

Reporter: THE EMPTINESS

AND LONELINESS STARTED TO

DISAPPEAR.

NOW I HAVE THIS GOD, THE

PERSONAL GOD, THAT WILL WALK

WITH ME AND CARRY ME THROUGH

AND GUIDE ME AND COUNSEL ME

AND MINISTER TO ME, SO THE

FEAR WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM

ME.

FROM THEN ON WARDS, MIRACLE

AFTER MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE

HAPPENED IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: SHE RECEIVED

A SCHOLARSHIP TO ANOTHER

UNIVERSITY, WHICH EXTENDED

HER VISA.

SHE ALSO MOVED

INTO

A

CHRISTIAN WOMAN'S HOME,

WHERE SHE WAS MENTORED IN A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

RODA IS MARRIED NOW WITH A

FAMILY OF HER OWN.

SHE HAS FULL ASSURANCE SHE

FOUND THE TRUE GOD SHE WAS

LOOKING FOR.

JESUS GAVE ME THE SENSE

OF SECURITY AND PEACE AND

JOY AND HOPE.

WHEN YOU REALLY EMBRACE

GOD'S LOVE, THEN THERE IS NO

FEAR AND THERE IS NO

LONELINESS, NO MORE

LONELINESS.

HIS LOVE SURROUNDS YOU AND

HE BLESSES YOU.

INTERPRETER

Terry: WE WERE CREATED

INTENTIONALLY TO BE

RELATIONAL PEOPLE.

WE ARE MEANT TO BE IN

RELATIONSHIP, ESPECIALLY

WITH THE ONE WHO CREATED

US.

GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH.

YOU KNOW, OF ALL OF THE

FAITHS IN THE WORLD, WE HAVE

THE ONLY FAITH WHERE RATHER

THAN US CONSTANTLY REACHING

OUT AND STRETCHING AND

STRIVING AND SACRIFICING AND

DOING THINGS TO BE

ACCEPTABLE ENOUGH TO GOD,

OUR GOD COMES TO US AND

SAYS, RECEIVE ME.

LET ME LOVE YOU.

I WANT TO FORGIVE YOU.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND

A FUTURE.

I WANT TO GIVE YOUR LIFE

PURPOSE AND MEANING.

IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT

YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IN YOUR

LIFE TODAY, IT'S AVAILABLE

TO YOU.

WHO SO EVER WILL, MAY COME.

ANYONE WHO CALLS UPON THE

NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE

SAVED.

AND THAT SALVATION

EXPERIENCE IS THE BEGINNING

OF THE MOST AMAZING

RELATIONSHIP YOU WILL EVER

EMBARK ON.

THERE IS FORGIVENESS.

THERE IS A FRESH START AND A

NEW BEGINNING.

I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO

DOESN'T NEED THAT.

ALL OF US, THE BIBLE SAYS,

HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT

OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

ALL OF US NEED A SAVIOR.

THAT'S WHY JESUS PAID THE

PRICE FOR YOU AND ME.

SO WE COULD HAVE ENTRY NOT

JUST TO ETERNITY, BUT TO A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

HIMSELF.

JESUS SAID, "I STAND AT THE

DOOR AND KNOCK.

IF ANYONE HEARS MY VOICE AND

OPENS THE DOOR, I WILL COME

IN AND HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH

HIM, AND HE WITH ME."

RELATIONSHIP, RELATIONSHIP,

RELATIONSHIP.

FORGIVENESS, FORGIVENESS.

GOD WANTS TO REDEEM IN YOUR

LIFE WHATEVER THE ENEMY HAS

STOLEN FROM YOU.

COME TO HIM HUMBLY, LIKE

RODA DID, AND LIKE MIKE AND

CHRIS REEVES DID.
