The 700 Club - February 14, 2013

Relationship experts Philip and Holly Wagner tackle the topic of kissing between romantic partners. Plus, Rob and Amanda were an ill-matched couple pursuing marriage in spite of the red flags. Read Transcript


Lee: CELEBRATE

VALENTINE'S DAY WITH "THE

700 CLUB."

KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN

IT.

Lee: HEAR A STORY OF

OPPOSITES ATTRACTING.

I ACTUALLY DIDN'T LIKE

HIM AT ALL.

SHE WAS CONCEDED.

Lee: HEARTBREAK.

IT WAS SOMETHING HIT ME

IN THE GUT.

Lee: AND LOVE

CONQUERING ALL.

I WANT IT.

I NEED IT.

Lee: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, THE SONG WAS

"LOVE IS IN THE AIR," AND

THAT WAS FROM "THE LOVE

BOAT."

I'M NOT SURE IF YOU LOOK IN

WASHINGTON YOU HAVE THE LOVE

BEING EXTENDED.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

THE GUY WHO SET UP KEEPING

PAY AWAY FROM CONGRESS UNTIL

THEY PASS A BUDGET.

MAYBE THAT IS TOUGH LOVE.

WE'RE ON "THE 700 CLUB," AND

WE'RE GLAD TO SEE YOU ON

THIS VALENTINE'S DAY.

NOT LONG AGO, AMERICAN

MANUFACTURING WAS THE ENVY

OF THE WORLD, BUT THE UNITED

STATES HAS LOST MILLIONS OF

MANUFACTURING JOBS IN JUST

THE LAST DECADE.

Terry: PRESIDENT OBAMA

SAYS HE WANTS TO BRING SOME

OF THOSE JOBS BACK, ALONG

WITH GROUPS IN THE PRIVATE

SECTOR.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THE

STORY.

EVEN THE FRAMING FOR THE

GRAPHIC PIECES THAT WE HAVE

HERE, WE WERE ABLE TO GET

DONE IN THE UNITED STATES.

Reporter: THE ARCHITECT

OF THIS VIEW OFFICE FOR THE

ALLIANCE FOR AMERICAN

MANUFACTURING WAS GIVEN A

SCARY TASK: USE ONLY

MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS MADE

IN THE U.S.A.

I THINK HE AND HIS TEAM

WERE TERRIFIED AT THE

BEGINNING, THAT THEY WON'T

BE ABLE TO FIND ANYTHING.

Reporter: IT BECAME A

TREASURE HUNT THAT BECAME AN

AMERICAN GOLD LINE.

VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING IN THIS

OFFICE, THE DESK AND

FURNITURE, WERE MADE IN

AMERICA.

THE FURNITURE WE HAVE IS

MADE BY A COMPANY CALLED

WASHINGTON STATE.

AND THE WINDOWS WERE ALL

MADE IN AMERICA.

Reporter: ON ONLY A FEW

OCCASIONS DID THE

ORGANIZATION SPEND MORE TO

BUY AMERICAN.

WE HAVE BIG, INDUSTRIAL

LIGHTING MADE IN

CALIFORNIA.

WE LEFT THE DUCT WORK

EXPOSED.

WE KNOW THE PLYWOOD AND THE

WOOD HAS MADE IN AMERICA

STAMPED RIGHT ON IT.

Reporter: WHILE SEEKING

RE-ELECTION, PRESIDENT OBAMA

CREATED A GOAL, TO CREATE

ONE MILLION JOBS IN HIS

SECOND TERM.

NOW THAT HIS SECOND TERM IS

WELL UNDER WAY, HE IS

PUSHING PROPOSALS TO BOOST

MANUFACTURING.

BUT PAUL SAYS THEY FALL

WOEFULLY SHORT OF THE

PRESIDENT'S CAMPAIGN

RHETORIC.

EVEN IF AMERICA DOES ADD

1 MILLION JOBS IN FOUR

YEARS, IT IS STILL JUST A

DROP IN THE BUCKET WHEN YOU

CONSIDER THE NATION HAS LOST

NEARLY 6 MILLION JOBS IN THE

LAST DECADE.

WHEN YOU CREATE

MANUFACTURING JOBS,

GENERALLY SPEAKING, YOUR

CREATING JOBS IN OTHER

SECTORS BECAUSE OF THE

HIGHER PAYCHECKS.

SO IT HAS A POSITIVE EFFECT

ON COMMUNITIES ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY, EVEN IF THEY DON'T

NECESSARILY HAVE A FACTORY

IN THEIR TOWN.

Reporter: THEN THERE IS

THE MORE $3 BILLION TRADE

DEFICIT WITH CHINA.

THAT IS ROUGHLY

$25 MILLION A MONTH, WHICH

IS AN EXTRAORDINARY AMOUNT

OF WEALTH

DRAINING OUT OF

THIS COUNTRY.

THAT

IS NOT EASILY

RECOVERABLE.

Reporter: THE GOOD

NEWS: THERE IS GROWING

CONSUMER DEMAND FOR PRODUCTS

MADE IN AMERICA.

I DO KNOW THIS: A LOT OF

THESE COMPANIES WOULD NOT

SPEND $8 MILLIONLY ON AN AD

IN THE SUPER BOWL TO SAY IT

IS MADE IN

AMERICA IF THEY

DIDN'T THINK IT WAS GOING TO

SELL.

Reporter: THE PRESIDENT

STILL HAS A LONG WAYS TO

GO.

MEANWHILE, PAUL HOPES HIS

OFFICE PROVES TO AMERICANS,

WITH A LITTLE RESEARCH, IT

IS POSSIBLE TO CREATE A HIP

SPACE MADE IN THE U.S.A.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: THANKS, JENNIFER.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH MADE IN

CHINA, MADE IN HONG KONG,

MADE IN SINGAPORE.

Terry: THERE IS NOTHING

WRONG WITH IT.

Pat: I'M KIDDING.

I'M GLAD THEY'RE DOING SOME

MANUFACTURING HERE.

THE PRESIDENT IS PUSHING

ANOTHER PLAN TO HELP THE

ECONOMY, BUT BUSINESS

DOESN'T SEEM TO LIKE IT.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: PAT, THIS STORY

MAY HAVE A LOT TO DO WITH

WHAT YOU AND TERRY WERE JUST

TALKING ABOUT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTS AN

INCREASE IN THE MINIMUM WAGE

TO $9 AN HOUR.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THAT

WILL BOOST WAGES FOR 15

15 MILLION AMERICANS.

A FULL-TIME MINIMUM WAGE

WORKER EARN EARNS ABOUT

$14,500.

FOR A SINGLE PARENT WITH A

CHILD, THAT IS BELOW THE

POVERTY LINE.

AN INCREASE TO $9, WHICH

WOULD MEAN AN ANNUAL SALARY

OF $18,000.

BUT, AND THIS IS A BIG

HOWEVER, CRITICS SAY THE

MOVE WOULD HURT BUSINESSES

BECAUSE HIGHER SALARIES

MEANS EMPLOYERS WOULD NOT BE

ABLE TO HIGHER AS MANY

PEOPLE.

THAT IS COMMON SENSE, PAT,

WHICH SEEMS TO BE SOARLY

LACKING IN WASHINGTON.

Pat: THEY DON'T HAVE IT

UP THERE.

YOU PASS A LAW THAT SAYS YOU

HAVE TO PAY $50 AN HOUR TO

YOUR WORKERS, WELL, GOOD, WE

WON'T HIGHER ANY WORKERS.

THE BIGGEST THING IS

ENTRY-LEVEL JOBS.

YOU WANT TO GET KIDS OUT OF

HIGH SCHOOL WORKING.

HAVE YOUNG PEOPLE JUST OUT

OF COLLEGE HAVE EMPLOYMENT.

WELL, IF YOU'RE GOING TO SET

THE BAR SO HIGH, THEN

BUSINESS WON'T HIGHER THEM.

THEN YOU'LL HAVE A LARGE

NUMBER OF DISADVANTAGED, AND

DISSATISFIED YOUNG PEOPLE

NOT BEING ABLE TO GO INTO

BUSINESS.

WHAT ARE WE ACCOMPLISHING?

LET THE MARKETPLACE DECIDE

WHAT THE WAGES.

IF YOU CAN'T HIGHER SOMEBODY

AT $8 OR $7.50, THEN YOU'LL

HAVE TO RAISE IT UP TO

NINE.

BUT DON'T LET THE GOVERNMENT

FORCE IT WHEN THE MARKET

WON'T DEMAND IT.

WELL, BACK TO LEE.

Lee: PAT, THE OUTGOING

SOCIAL SECURITY COMMISSIONER

IS BLASTING WASHINGTON

POLITICIANS FOR WALKING AWAY

FROM THE PROGRAM.

MICHAEL J. ASTRU SAYS

CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE

HAVE NEGLECTED SOCIAL

SECURITY'S HARD PROGRAMS.

AND INSTEAD OF MAKING THE

HARD CHOICES TO FIX IT, THEY

HAVE USED THE PROGRAM FOR

POLITICAL SPEECH.

HE SAYS TAX INCREASES AND

CUTS ARE INEVITABLE.

WE HAVE MORE ON THE

FINANCIAL PROBLEMS FACING

WASHINGTON IN OUR NEXT

SEGMENT.

PAT?

Pat: LEE, THE TRUTH IS

PEOPLE ARE LIVING A LOT

LONGER.

THEY ARE A LOT HEALTHIER.

WE HAVE TREMENDOUS HEALTH

CARE IN AMERICA.

AND WITH DIET AND NUTRITION

AND ALL OF THE OTHER STUFF

WE'RE DOING, WE'RE LIVING

LONGER.

AND SO THE BIGGEST COHORT OF

PEOPLE ARE THE PEOPLE OVER

80.

THAT'S A LARGE, GROWING

SEGMENT.

PEOPLE WHO ARE OVER 60 AND

70 ARE NOT ANY LONGER

CONSIDERED REALLY OLD.

WELL, WE HAVE A RETIREMENT

AGE OF 65.

IT NO LONGER COMPORTS WITH

REALITY.

SO WHY DON'T WE GET REAL AND

SAY, ALL RIGHT, WE'RE NOT

GOING TO PAY PENSIONS UNTIL

YOU GET TO BE 70 OR 67 OR

68, OR WHATEVER.

WHY WOULD PEOPLE FIGHT

THAT?

WHY DOES EVERYBODY THINK

ABOUT RETIREMENT?

THE AVERAGE WORKER IS MUCH

HAPPIER IF HE HAS SOMETHING

TO DO RATHER THAN SITTING ON

A PORCH IN A ROCKING CHAIR.

YOU SAY THESE YOUNG ONES

WANT TO COME IN AND TAKE

THEIR PLACES -- MAYBE, MAYBE

NOT.

I BELIEVE IT IS UNRELLITIC

UNREALISTIC TO PAY BIG

BENEFITS TO PEOPLE WHO ARE

PERFECTLY HEALTHY AND WHO

WANT TO WORK.

I THINK IT IS TIME TO STOP

PLAYING POLITICS AND SAY,

ADJUST THE AGE OF MEDICARE,

ADJUST THE AGE OF SOCIAL

SECURITY, STOP PLAYING WITH

IT, AND RECOGNIZE THE

DEMOGRAPHIC REALITIES.

LEE?

Lee: AND WE PROBABLY

NEED TO BE LOOKING ACROSS

THE ATLANTIC TO EUROPE.

EUROPE HAS FALLEN DEEPER

INTO A RECESSION.

THE TWO BIGGEST COUNTRIES,

GERMANY AND FRANCE, SAW

THEIR ECONOMIES SHRINK EN

THE LAST THREE MONTHS OF

2012.

AND OTHER NATIONS, LIKE

SPAIN, ARE TRYING TO RECOVER

FROM THEIR DEBT CRISIS.

HORSE MEAT IS AT THE CENTER

OF A FOOD SCANDAL ROCKING

EUROPE.

IT EXPORTED 6,000 POUNDS OF

HORSE MEAT.

ONCE IT HIT THE MARKET IN

THOSE COUNTRIES, IT WAS SOLD

AS BEEF.

JOHN WAGGI REPORTS.

Reporter: THE MEAT WAS

PROCESSED AT 35 ROMANIAN

PLANTS, LIKE THIS ONE.

THE ROMANIAN OFFICIALS SAY

THE HORSE AND DONKEY MEAT

WAS CORRECTLY LABELLED AND

SOLD TO BUYERS IN EIGHT

EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.

THE GENERAL MANAGER OF THE

ROMANIAN PLANT SAYS HE IS

GUARANTEE ALL OF THE

PRODUCTS HIS COMPANY PUTS ON

THE MARKET ARE CERTIFIED IN

THE POINT OF VIEW OF QUALITY

AND ORIGIN, 100%.

BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE

LINE, THE HORSE AND DONKEY

MEAT WAS LABELLED AS MEAT.

SOME SAMPLES OF THE FROZEN

SPAGHETTI CONTAINED MORE

THAN 60% HORSE MEAT.

IT IS COMPLETELY

UNACCEPTABLE.

WE HAVE AGREED TO TOUGHER

INSPECTION REGIME, AND WE'VE

ASKED HOSPITALS AND SCHOOLS

AND PRISONS, TO CHECK WITH

OUR SUPPLIERS, THAT THEY ARE

TESTING THEIR PRODUCTS.

Reporter: BRITISH FOOD

SAFETY AUTHORITIES RAIDED A

SLAUGHTERHOUSE IN NORTHERN

ENGLAND, AND A MEAT

PROCESSING PLANT IN WALES,

SUSPECTED OF SELLING HORSE

MEAT USED IN BURGERS AND

KEBABS.

IT IS A VIOLATION THAT ALL

EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS ARE

TRYING TO GET A HANDLE ON.

IT IS COMPLETELY

UNACCEPTABLE THAT ANYBODY

SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN THE

PRODUCTION OR THE SALE OF A

PROCESSED BEEF PRODUCT WHICH

INCLUDES HORSE.

Reporter:

Reporter: AND THE

PUBLIC REACTION?

I'M DISGUSTED.

I THINK IT IS REALLY BAD.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THEY

CAN LIE.

IT IS MORE IMMORAL, I

THINK, AS MUCH AS ANYTHING

ELSE.

Reporter: ONE BRITISH

OFFICIAL SAYS BEEF PRODUCTS

AREN'T THE ONLY MEAT THAT

MAY BE MISLABELED.

IF I WAS A RETAILER, I'D

BE LOOKING QUITE CAREFULLY

AT MY LAMB PRODUCTS AS

WELL.

Reporter: THE MEAT

SCANDAL IS NOW CLEARLY ON

THE RADAR SCREEN OF EUROPEAN

OFFICIALS, BUT UNTIL THEY

TRACK DOWN THE SOURCE OF THE

FAULTY LABELLING, THE WATCH

WORD SEEMS TO BE, "LET THE

DINER BEWARE."

Lee: PAT, THIS COULD

HAVE AND IMPACT ON EUROPEAN

TOURISM.

Pat: EXACTLY.

YOU'RE AT AN EXCLUSIVE

RESTAURANT, THE PRICES ARE

THROUGH THE ROOF, AND YOU'RE

HEATING HORSE MEAT.

OKAY.

I'VE NEVER EATEN HORSE MEAT,

BUT I UNDERSTAND IT DOESN'T

TASTE TOO BAD.

THE PROBLEM IS, THOSE OF US

WHO LOVE HORSES AND HAVE

HORSES, WHEN THEY GET OLDER,

YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING

WITH THEM.

YOU CAN'T JUST KEEP THEM

FOREVER.

WHEN THEY GET PUT DOWN, IT

USED TO BE YOU'D CALL THE

RENDERING COMPANY, AND THEY

WOULD GIVE YOU $600 AND PICK

UP THE HORSE AND USE THE

HOOVES.

WE HAVE PASSED STRINGENT

LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY YOU

CAN'T GET A RENDERING

COMPANY TAKE YOUR HORSE.

SO YOU HAVE TO SHIP YOUR

HORSES OFF TO CANADA, OR YOU

HAVE TO PAY AN SCOSH

EXORBADANT AMOUNT OF MONEY.

Terry: I TRAVELLED TO

MONGOLIA AND HORSE MEAT IS

LEGAL.

Pat: SURE.

IT DOESN'T TASTE HORRIBLE.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN A COW AND A HORSE.

YOU JUST LOVE THE HORSE

BECAUSE THESE ARE CREATURES

YOU RIDE.

YOU DON'T RIDE THE COWS.

SO MUCH FOR THAT.

ANYHOW, I'M NOT TOO MUCH IN

FAVOR OF SLAUGHTERING

HORSES, BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE

HAS TO BE A PROCEDURE

WHERE -- YOU KNOW, THEY MADE

LEATHER OUT OF THEIR HIDES

AND SO FORTH.

LET'S GO BACK TO THE NANNY

STATE AND UP TO THE BIG

APPLE AND SEE WHAT THE MAYOR

HAS COME UP WITH NEXT.

Lee: YOU THOUGHT NEW

YORK CITY MAYOR MICHAEL

BLOOMBERG WAS SATISFIED JUST

BANNING SUPER-SIZED SUGARY

DRINKS.

NO, HE IS PUSHING FOR ONE

MORE BAN IN HIS LAST MONTH

OF OFFICE.

THIS IS HIS LATEST TARGET:

STYROFOAM COFFEE CUPS.

IT IS CONSIDERED HARMFUL TO

THE ENVIRONMENT AND HARDER

TO RECYCLE.

NEW YORK CITY RESTAURANTS

AND CONVENIENCE STORES ARE

EXPECTED TO FIGHT THE BAN.

I ONLY WISH, PAT, THAT THIS

WAS ONE OF THOSE HUGE

16-OUNCE CUPS FULL OF SUGARY

SODA TO TOAST THE MAYOR.

Pat: OH, MAN, YOU WOULD

NOT CUT IT IN THE NANNY

STATE.

YOU'RE TOO INDEPENDENT AS A

THINKER.

ANYWAY, MICHAEL BLOOMBERG IS

AMULTI, MULTI-BILLIONAIRE.

YOU WONDER WHERE DOES HE

COME FROM?

HE MUST HAVE HAD A VERY

PICKY MOTHER WHEN HE WAS

YOUNG.

Terry: WAIT A MINUTE.

HOW ABOUT A PICKY FATHER.

Pat: HE IS TAKING AWAY

SUGARY DRINKS.

AND HE WANTS TO TAKE AWAY

STYROFOAM.

Terry: I THINK HE NEEDS

A HOBBY.

Pat: HE HAS A HOBBY.

HE MAKES LOTS AND LOTS AND

LOTS OF MONEY.

ONE MORE MONTH OR SO.

HOW YOUIERA YOU YEARN FOR

THE DAYS OF ED KOCH.

Terry: UP NEXT, THERE

IS NO LOVE LOST HERE.

FIND OUT WHO AMERICANS LIKE

LESS THAN COCKROACHES AND

ROOT CANALS.

AND LATER ON, JUST IN TIME

FOR VALENTINE'S DAY,

EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED

TO KNOW ABOUT KISSING, FROM

THE EXPERTS.

*

Pat: WELL, IT'S

VALENTINE'S DAY, AND YOU

WISH YOU COULD GO TO

WASHINGTON AND YOU'D FIND

THE HONORABLE MEMBERS LOVING

EACH OTHER, HUGGING EACH

OTHER AND EXCHANGING KISSES

AND LITTLE FLOWERS.

IT AIN'T THAT WAY.

IF YOU LOOK UP THE WORD

"DYSFUNCTIONAL" IN THE

DICTIONARY, YOU MIGHT FIND A

PICTURE OF OUR CONGRESS.

THEY CAN'T SEEM TO GET

ANYTHING DONE.

BUT THERE IS ONE PLAN THAT

MIGHT CHANGE THINGS ON

CAPITOL HILL BECAUSE IT

WOULD HIT LAWMAKERS RIGHT

WHERE IT HURTS, IN THEIR

WALLETS.

JOHN JESSUP EXPLAINS.

Reporter: IT IS HARD TO

IMAGINE CONGRESS' APPROVAL

RATING FALLING ANY LOWER.

ACCORDING TO A RECENT

SURVEY, MORE PEOPLE LIKE

COCKROACHES OR ROOT CANALS

THAN LAWMAKERS.

BUT THERE IS ONE IDEA

CONCERNING CONGRESS THAT THE

PUBLIC OVERWHELMING

SUPPORTS, NO BUDGET, NO

PAY.

MEMBERS DON'T GET PAID UNTIL

OR UNLESS THEY PASS THE

BUDGET.

IT IS SUPPORTED BY 88% OF

AMERICANS BECAME REALITY

WHEN THE

REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED HOUSE

MADE NO BUDGET, NO PAY, A

PRECONDITION TO TEMPORARILY

DELAY THE LATEST ROUND OF

BUDGET TALKS.

THE DEBATE OVER RAISING THE

DEBT CEILING, SO THE

GOVERNMENT CAN KEEP

OPERATING.

THE NO BUDGET, NO PAY ACT

PASSED BOTH THE HOUSE AND

SENATE AND PRESIDENT OBAMA

SIGNED IT INTO LAW.

PEOPLE BELIEVE MAKING

POLITICIANS MORE ACCOUNTABLE

MAY EVEN MAKE GOVERNMENT

WORK SOMEWHAT EFFICIENTLY.

BEFORE THE NO BUDGET, NO PAY

BILL PASSED, THE SENATE

HADN'T PUT TOGETHER A BUDGET

IN FOUR YEARS, AND IT HAS

BEEN 15 YEARS SINCE CONGRESS

PASSED A BUDGET ON TIME.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: JOINING US NOW IS

DAVID WALKER.

HE IS THE FORMER U.S.

COMPTROLLER, GENERAL.

AND HE IS NOW THE C.E.O. OF

"COME BACK AMERICA"

INITIATIVE.

AND HE IS ONE OF THE

CO-FOUNDERS OF THE GROUP

THAT STARTED THE NO BUDGET,

NO PAY.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE.

GOOD TO BE BACK, PAT.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY.

Pat: BACK TO YOU, SIR.

IS HARRY REID TRYING TO KEEP

THE DEMOCRATS FROM PASSING A

BUDGET?

THEY HAVEN'T PASSED A BUDGET

IN THREE YEARS.

WHAT IS GOING ON?

IT IS POLITICS.

THIS SHOWS YOU HOW A SIMPLE

CONCEPT, THAT IS

OVERWHELMING SUPPORTED BY

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN

BECOME LAW.

THE NO BUDGET, NO PAY IS A

LIGHT VERSION.

A MORE EXTENSIVE ONE IS WHAT

"NO LABELS" IS ARGUING FOR.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOUR

YEARS, THE SENATE WILL HAVE

A BUDGET.

YOU'LL HAVE A SENATE BUDGET,

A HOUSE BUDGET, AND A

PRESIDENTIAL PROPOSAL.

HOPEFULLY THERE WILL PROVIDE

A BASIS FOR MUCH-NEEDED,

OVERDUE DISCUSSIONS TO

ACHIEVE A FISCAL BARGAIN.

Pat: YOU WERE THERE AT

THE GUTS OF THE SPENDING IN

THE UNITED STATES

GOVERNMENT.

THEIR SPENDING IS OUT OF

CONTROL.

THE DEBT IS OUT OF CONTROL.

WHAT IS CAUSING IT, IN YOUR

OPINION?

WELL, SEVERAL THINGS.

ONE, WE'RE DOMINATED NOW BY

CAREER POLITICIANS, BY

SPECIAL INTERESTS, BY WING

NUTS.

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

INTEREST GROUPS FOR NARROW

INTERESTS, BUT THERE IS NOT

A LOBBY FOR THE PUBLIC

INTEREST.

THERE IS NOT A LOBBY FOR THE

FUTURE.

WHAT'S GOING ON RIGHT NOW IS

WE'RE MORTGAGING THE FUTURE

OF OUR KIDS AND GRANDKIDS AT

RECORD RATES WHILE REDUCING

THE ROLE OF INVESTMENTS IN

THEIR FUTURE AT A TIME

THEY'RE GOING TO FACE A LOT

TOUGHER COMPETITION.

THAT'S IRRESPONSIBLE,

UNETHICAL, AND IMMORAL, AND

IT MUST STOP.

Pat: OKAY, LOOK AT THE

PRESIDENT.

ARE WE LACKING PRESIDENTIAL

LEADERSHIP?

THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY

LEADERSHIP IN THE CONGRESS

THAT MAKES IT HAPPEN.

JOHN BOEHNER SEEMS TO BE

DOING SOMETHING.

AND HE COMES INTO THE WHITE

HOUSE AND COMES OUT ASHENED

FACE AND CLAIMS HE GOT

BETRAYED.

DOES IT STOP AT THE

EXECUTIVE OFFICE?

AS YOU KNOW, PAT, THE

BIGGEST DEFICIT WE HAVE IN

THE UNITED STATES TODAY IS

THE LEADERSHIP DEFICIT.

AND, FRANKLY, BUSH 43 WAS

NOT A LEADER ON THIS ISSUE,

AND SO FAR PRESIDENT OBAMA

HAS NOT BEEN EITHER.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON

ELECTED BY ALL OF THE

PEOPLE, AND THAT'S THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

AND THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON

WHO IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE

OFFICER.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON

THAT CAN COMMAND NATIONAL

MEDIA ATTENTION ON REQUEST,

AND THAT'S THE PRESIDENT.

SO THE PRESIDENT CLEARLY HAS

TO SHOW MUCH MORE

LEADERSHIP.

THE TWO PARTIES HAVE TO WORK

FOR PRINCIPLE-BASED

COMPROMISE.

AND WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE

RESPONSIBLE AND

ACCOUNTABLE.

WE HAVE TO TURN UP THE HEAT

ON THESE PEOPLE.

IF THEY DON'T END UP SOLVING

PROBLEMS, GET RID OF THEM.

Pat: AGAIN, OBAMA HAS

SAID, I DON'T THINK SPENDING

IS A PROBLEM.

AND YET THE SPENDING HAS

GONE OUT OF CONTROL.

TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS DURING

HIS WATCH.

WHAT'S GOING TO WAKE HIM AND

THESE OTHER GUYS UP?

LET ME GIVE YOU SOME

STATS.

POLITICIANS AREN'T GOOD AT

TELLING THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE

TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE

TRUTH.

100 YEARS AGO, THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT WAS 2% OF THE

ECONOMY, NOW IT IS 23,

HEADED TO 37.

IF THAT'S NOT A SPENDING

PROBLEM, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

IS.

IN ADDITION, THINGS SPUN OUT

OF CONTROL IN 2003.

SINCE 2003, WHICH, BY THE

WAY, IS THE FIRST YEAR THAT

STATUTORY BUDGET CONTROLS

EXPIRED, AND WE HAVE BEEN

ABSOLUTELY OUT OF CONTROL.

100 YEARS AGO, CONGRESS

CONTROLLED 97% OF SPENDING.

NOW IT IS DOWN TO 33% AND

DECLINING.

GOVERNMENTS HAVE GROWN TOO

BIG, PROMISED TOO MUCH, AND

LOST CONTROL OF THE BUDGET.

THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHICH

SPENDING POLICIES AND TAX

POLICIES WORK AND WHICH

DON'T.

SO IT ENDS UP DOING MORE OF

THE SAME, WHICH IS CALLED

INSANITY.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

THAT IS EINSTEIN'S

DEFINITION.

AND I AGREE WITH YOU.

THEY DON'T HAVE CONTROL OF

50, 60% OF THE ACTUAL

BUDGET?

YOU MEAN, THESE ARE THINGS

THAT JUST KEEP COMING UP,

THE SO-CALLED ENTITLEMENTS

AND SO FORTH?

67% OF THE BUDGET AND

GROWING IS ON AUTO PILOT.

GOVERNMENT HAS WRITTEN A

BLANK CHECK.

YOU CAN'T DO THAT IN YOUR

FAMILY.

A COMPANY CAN'T DO THAT, AND

A COUNTRY SHOULD NOT DO

THAT.

IT IS IRRESPONSIBLE AND

UNSUSTAINABLE.

Pat: I'M ALL FOR THIS

NO PAY THING, BUT I JUST

DON'T THINK THAT'S GOING TO

DO IT.

WHAT IS GOING TO WAKE THIS

GROUP UP TO THE REALITIES?

BECAUSE THERE IS THIS NEXUS

OF GOVERNMENT OF EMPLOYEES,

THE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS,

AND THE PRESSURES SEEM TO BE

IN SURMOUNTABLE.

WHAT ARE WE WE GOING TO DO

THAT BREAK THIS DEBT

CRISIS.

FIRST, WE'LL HAVE A DEBT

CRISIS LIKE EUROPE, OR WE'RE

GOING TO GET PRESIDENTIAL

LEADERSHIP WITH THE PEOPLE

PRESSURING THE PRESIDENT AND

THE CONGRESS TO BE ABLE TO

SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

IT IS VERY SIMPLE.

WE HAVE TO MAKE THE

POLITICAL PRICE OF DOING

NOTHING, WHICH THEY'RE VERY

ADEPT AT, GREATER THAN THE

POLITICAL PRICE OF MAKING

TOUGH CHOICES TO CREATE A

BETTER FUTURE.

WE CAN SOLVE THIS PROBLEM,

AND WE NEED TO SOLVE IT IN

2013 BECAUSE THINGS

TYPICALLY JUST DON'T HAPPEN

IN ELECTION YEARS.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THE

SEQUESTER THING.

THAT WAS A LAST-DITCH EFFORT

TO FORCE SOMEBODY, AND NOW

THAT WE'VE DONE IT,

EVERYBODY SAYS IT IS A

MISTAKE.

Reporter: THEY PROVIDED

A SE QUESTEQUESTER TO MAKE

A BARGAIN.

BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE A

DISASTER.

ON THE OTHER HAND, I'M HERE

TO TELL YOU WHILE IT IS

IRRATIONAL TO BE ABLE TO DO

A PROPOSAL ACROSS THE

BOARD.

NOT ALL SPENDING PROGRAMS

ARE THE SAME.

SOME WORK; SOME DON'T.

SOME ARE CONSTITUTIONAL;

SOME AREN'T.

BUT MY VIEW IS THE SEQUESTER

WILL HAPPEN UNLESS AND UNTIL

THEY ACHIEVE A MUCH BIGGER

DEFICIT REDUCTION PLAN THAT

MIGHT BE PHASED IN OVER A

LONGER PERIOD OF TIME, BUT

INVOLVES REAL CHANGES, AND

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR WHAT, AT

WHAT AGE, AND FOR WHAT

AMOUNT, AND AT WHAT SUBSIDY

LEVEL, IN ADDITION TO

DEFENSE AND OTHER SPENDING

REDUCTIONS.

Pat: DAVID, WE

APPRECIATE WHAT YOU'RE

DOING.

ALWAYS A PLEASURE.

Pat: KEEP SOUNDING THE

TRUMPET.

WE NEED YOUR VOICE.

DAVID WALKER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Pat: FRIGHTENING.

HE SAYS WE NEED LEADERSHIP

AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO

ISN'T ON BOARD FOR THIS.

HE DOESN'T SEEM TO THINK

DEFICIT REDUCTION IS A BIG

DEAL.

Terry: AND TO SAY THAT

THE ECONOMY IS NOW GETTING

BACK ON ITS LEGS, AND

SPENDING IS NOT A PROBLEM --

THESE ARE SO BASIC.

YOU TALKED OFTEN ABOUT WHEN

YOU DON'T HAVE EXPERIENCE IN

RUNNING A LARGE CORPORATION,

SOMETHING THAT REQUIRES REAL

UNDERSTANDING OF THE

ECONOMY, IT TAKES ITS TOLL.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT WE'RE

SEEING.

Pat: WE HAVE A

COMMUNITY ORGANIZER WHO'S

TOTAL EXPERIENCE WAS

ORGANIZING COMMUNITY ACTION

IN PRECINCTS OUT IN

CHICAGO.

HE HAS RISEN UP VERY QUICKLY

FROM SENATE TO PRESIDENT.

AND HE JUST DOESN'T KNOW HOW

TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU

VOTED FOR HIM.

THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE

FELL FOR THAT RHETORIC, AND

THIS IS THE PROBLEM.

WHAT HAPPENED IN

LATIN-AMERICA?

YOU'D HAVE SOME KODIO WHO

WOULD COME IN THERE WITH ALL

SORTS OF WONDERFUL PROMISES,

AND THE PEOPLE WOULD STAND

IN LIP AN LINE AND VOTE FOR

HIM, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU

HAVE PERON AND OTHERS

DESTROYING THE ECONOMY.

PRAY, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THIS IS A GREAT COUNTRY AND

IT WILL TAKE A LOT TO WRECK

IT, BUT THEY SURE ARE

TRYING.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

SOMETHING FOR YOUR VALENTINE

THAT IS SURE TO SCORE BIG

TIME.

JUST KISS ME LIKE YOU

MEAN IT.

WHEN I MENTION IT, THAT'S

A BIG POINT.

Terry: HOLLY AND PHILIP

WAGNER SHARE THREE POINTERS

ABOUT KISSING YOU DON'T WANT

TO MISS.

BUT FIRST, TERRY WANTS TO

KNOW, "WHAT DOES IT REALLY

MEAN TO LOVE OUR WIVES AS

CHRIST LOVED

THE CHURCH.

HOW DO WE DO THAT?"

WE'RE GOING TO TACKLE

TERRY'S QUESTION AND MORE ON

"MATTERS OF THE HEART" AFTER

THIS.

WELL, THAT'S KIND OF AN

EXCITING TALE.

HE CAME TO AN OPEN HOUSE

THAT THE STUDENT NURSES HAD,

AND I WAS TRYING TO ESCAPE

FROM SOMEONE ELSE.

AND I SAID I HAD TO WORK AT

THE REFRESHMENT TABLE.

AND I WENT DOWN THERE AND

THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD

DO.

SO I TRIED TO LOOK BUSY, AND

MY HAIR CAUGHT ON FIRE, AND

PAT JUMPED UP AND PUT IT OUT

WITH HIS BARE HANDS.

AND SOMEHOW THE FIRE THAT HE

PUT OUT IN MY HAIR MOVED TO

MY HEART AND IT HAS NEVER

LEFT.

Pat: SWEET.

Terry: THAT'S A SWEET

VALENTINE MEMORY.

Pat: IT IS.

Terry: THAT'S REALLY

WONDERFUL AND APPROPRIATE TO

LEAD US INTO OUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS TODAY BECAUSE

THEY'RE ALL SURROUNDING

RELATIONSHIPS.

THIS IS FROM SANDRA WHO

SAYS, "PAT, I ALWAYS HEAR

YOU SPEAK SO HIGHLY OF YOUR

WIFE AND I KNOW UG YOU'VE

BEEN MARRIED MANY YEARS.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR

COUPLES WHO WANT TO HAVE A

HAPPY, LONG-LASTING

MARRIAGE?"

Pat: FIRST OF ALL,

DON'T TAKE YOURSELF TWO

SERIOUSLY.

THAT'S ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT THINGS.

UYOU DON'T GET MAD.

YOU DON'T HOLD A GRUDGE.

AND YOU LOVE AND YOU

FORGIVE.

THE NEXT THING THAT IS

IMPORTANT IS HONOR THE

GIFTINGS THAT GOD HAS PLACED

IN YOUR SPOUSE.

DEE DEE HONORS THE FACT THAT

I'M PRETTY GOOD WITH

BUSINESS AND MONEY, SO SHE

LEAVES ME ALONE TO DO THOSE

THINGS.

I HONOR THE FACT SHE IS A

PRETTY GOOD DECORATOR AND

HAS SKILL, AND SHE HAS

TREMENDOUS FEELING FOR

SPACE.

YOU LOOK AT A PLAN, AN

ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING, AND

SHE IMMEDIATELY SEE THINGS.

SO I HONOR THAT.

AND THE TWO OF US WORK

PRETTY WELL TOGETHER.

BUT THE OTHER THING IS THERE

IS LOTS OF HUGS AND KISSES.

OUR FAMILY AND OUR

CHILDREN -- WE WENT ON A

TRIP AND HIS MAN SAID, YOU

CERTAINLY ARE AN

AFFECTIONATE FAMILY.

ONE OF MY OLDEST SONS WAS

SITTING ON MY LAP.

Terry: AND HE'S 54.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: IT'S A LOT OF

THAT.

A LOT OF LOVE AND

AFFECTION.

BUT REALISM.

YOU JUST CAN'T TAKE YOURSELF

SO SERIOUSLY.

Terry: I AGREE.

THE RELATIONSHIP NEEDS TO BE

PRIORITY ALWAYS.

Pat: BUT IT IS

FORGIVENESS AND YOU LOVE

EACH OTHER.

AND SO, OKAY, SHE DOESN'T

PICK UP EVERYTHING YOU WOULD

LIKE, SO WHO CARES.

YOU KNOW, THE TWO OF YOU

LIVE TOGETHER IN HARMONY.

AND YOU DO EVERYTHING YOU

CAN TO MAKE THE OTHER ONE

HAPPY.

MY BIG THING NOW WITH MY

WIFE IS, WHAT WOULD YOU

LIKE, DEAR?

NO, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE?

NO, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE?

IT'S KIND OF LIKE -- FOR ME,

I'M NOT INSISTENT ON STUFF

FOR ME.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

TERRY WHO SAYS, "WHAT DOES

IT REALLY MEAN TO LOVE OUR

WIVES AS CHRIST LOVED THE

CHURCH.

HOW DO WE DO THAT STRIKERS.

Pat?"

Pat: WE HAVE THIS

BUSINESS ABOUT A WIFE BEING

PERMISSIVE TO HER HUSBAND.

AND THE LIBERALS GO

APOPLECTIC WHEN THEY THINK

OF THAT.

YOU'RE TELLING WOMEN TO BE

SUBJECTIVE TO THEIR

HUSBAND.

ONLY IF THE HUSBAND IS LIKE

JESUS AND IS WILLING TO DIE

FOR THE WIFE.

AND ONCE IS WOMAN THINKS HER

HUSBAND LOVES HER SO MUCH HE

WOULD GIVE HIMSELF FOR HER,

OF COURSE SHE IS MORE THAN

WILLING TO GO ALONG WITH

WHAT HE WANTS TO DO BECAUSE

WHAT HE WANTS TO DO IS GOOD

FOR HER.

CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH SO

MUCH HE WAS WILLING TO GIVE

HIMSELF FOR IT.

THAT'S ULTIMATELY WHAT IT

MEANS.

IT IS A VERY HEAVY

STANDARD.

INSTEAD OF SAYING, I WANT

WHAT'S MINE.

THERE WAS A MOVIE CALLED

"THE WAR OF THE ROSES."

THEY STARTED FIGHTING WITH

EACH OTHER AND DROVE TRUCKS

INTO THE HOUSE AND TORE EACH

OTHER UP.

SO YOU HAVE TO LOVE EACH

OTHER AND FORGIVE EACH OTHER

AND HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING

HEART.

Terry: MARILYN

SAYS, "DOES GOD'S PLANS FOR

OUR LIFE INCLUDE A SPECIFIC

PERSON FOR A PERSON AND IF

SO, IS THIS THE TERM

SOULMATE?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW THE

TERM "SOULMATE," BUT IT

MEANS SOMEBODY WHO IS IN

TUNE WITH YOU ON A DEEPER

LEVEL.

MY WIFE AND I PRAY

TOGETHER.

WHEN THE LORD SPEAKS, HE

SPEAKS TO HER AND HE SPEAKS

TO ME, AND WE SHARE.

BUT SOULMATE IS THE WHOLE

IDEA OF SOMEBODY IN A

DEEPER, MORE THAN JUST AN

INTELLECTUAL LEVEL, BUT AT

AN I MOTIVATIONAL LEVEL

EMOTIONAL LEVEL.

Terry: TONY SAYS, "OR

OUR WIVES TO SUBMIT TO A

PASTOR OR A SPIRITUAL

COVERING, AND IF SO, WHAT IS

SPIRIT COVERING?"

Pat: IT IS A GROUP

KNOWN AS SHEPHERDING.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, THERE

IS AN OLD HEBREW WORD THAT

MEANS LID OF COVERING.

AND IT WAS USED TO DESCRIBE

THE SEAT IN THE HOLY OF

HOLY.

WHEN THE SEPTOR WAS WRITTEN

IN GREEK, THEY TOOK THE WORD

"CAPORIT" AND THEY GAVE A

GREEK WORD TO IT.

PAUL WROTE IN THE NEW

TESTAMENT, JESUS IS OUR

HILLITARION.

IN THE KING JAMES, IT WAS

TRANSLATED PROPICATION.

AND NOBODY HAS A CLUE.

BUT WHAT IT MEANT IS JESUS

IS OUR LID OF COVERING.

HE IS THE ONLY COVERING.

NOT SOME PASTOR.

WOMEN DON'T NEED COVERING.

WOMEN NEED TO BE IN

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

HE IS OUR COVERING.

AND I DON'T WANT TO BE

SOMEBODY'S COVERING.

BUT IN TERMS OF A PROTECTOR,

THE WIFE BEING THE WEAKER

VESSEL, I CONSIDER MYSELF A

PROTECTOR.

I'M GOING TO LOOK AFTER MY

WIFE.

NOT BECAUSE I'M A COVERING,

BUT BECAUSE I'M A HUSBAND.

AND THAT MEANS I'M GOING TO

LOOK AFTER HER.

Terry: YOU CARE FOR

HER.

Pat: I CARE FOR HER AND

CHERISH HER.

AND THAT'S WHAT YOU WOULD DO

AS A COVERING.

A PASTOR AS A COVERING FOR

SOMEBODY'S WIFE?

GIVE ME A BREAK.

THAT WAS TOTAL HARICY, AND I

THINK IT HAS BEEN PUT DOWN

NOW AND SHOWN TO BE WHAT IT

WAS.

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS THIS

VALENTINE'S DAY.

IT WAS INTERESTING TO HEAR

WHAT WAS ON YOUR HEART.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON

WITH JEWELRY, FLOWERS, AND

CANDY --

Pat: AND CANDY.

Terry: AND CANDY.

WAYS TO SHOW YOUR LOVE ON

VALENTINE'S DAY.

BUT IF YOU FALL SHORT IN

THESE CATEGORIES, THERE IS A

WAY TO REDEEM YOURSELF TODAY

AND EVERY DAY.

YOU'RE GOING TO FIND OUT HOW

BY THE AUTHORS OF "HOW TO

TURN YOUR MARRIAGE AROUND IN

10 DAYS," FROM PHILIP AND

HOLLY.

ANOTHER REALLY GOOD WAY

TO CONNECT IS BY KISSING.

THAT'S ONE OF THE BEST

WAYS TO CONNECT, IS

KISSING.

COME ON, KISSING LESSONS

RIGHT HERE.

LET ME HELP YOU OUT.

THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF

KISSES, WHICH IS THE

LIPSTICK KISS, WHICH IS 95%

AIR, YOU DON'T WANT TO MESS

UP THE LIPSTICK.

AND THEN THERE IS THE

10-SECOND KISS, AND THEN

THERE IS THE KISS WHERE YOU

GO, H'MMM, GOT ANOTHER 30

MINUTES?

SO MOST OF US ARE FAMILIAR

WITH THE LIPSTICK KISS.

THE 10-SECOND KISS IS ABOUT

CONNECTION.

IT IS ABOUT, WAIT A MINUTE.

JUST LET ME LOOK IN YOUR

EYES.

SO WE'LL PLAY WITH EACH

OTHER.

SOMETIMES SHE'S IN A HURRY

OR I'M IN A HURRY, AND I GO,

WAIT, KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN

IT.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS STAY HERE

FOR 10 SECONDS, AND JUST

CONVEY IN YOUR EYES OR IN

YOUR TONE THAT I'M

CONNECTING.

KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN

IT.

WE HAVE TO STOP EACH OTHER.

AND WHEN I MENTION IT

FIRST, THAT'S BIG POINTS.

SO FIND A WAY THAT YOU

CAN CONNECT.

LET'S KISS.

NO, KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN

IT KISS.

HEY, KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN

IT KISS.

Terry: WELL, FOR MORE

TIPS ON LOVE AND ROMANCE, WE

HAVE A WEB INTERVIEW WITH

THEM.

LOG ON TO cbn.com, AND

CLICK "IN THE GREEN ROOM"

AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WATCH

THAT.

AND NEXT WEEK WE'LL BE DOING

A SPECIAL WEEK OF LOVE AND

MARRIAGE.

CALLED "MARRIAGE ON THE

ROCK."

AND STILL AHEAD TODAY, A

MARRIAGE THAT WAS ANYTHING

BUT MADE IN HEAVEN.

I HAD NO SKILLS TO BE

ANYBODY'S WIFE.

I DID NOT LIKE TO COOK,

CLEAN.

AND IT WAS JUST A MESS.

I WOULD CALL HER LAZY.

YOU'RE AN ADULT, CLEAN UP

AFTER YOURSELF.

Terry: SEE HOW A

PRAYING MOM REDEEMED THIS

RELATIONSHIP LATER ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

HAS APPROVED AID FOR HOUSES

DAMAGED BY HURRICANE SANDY.

THEY VOTED 354 TO 72 IN

FAVOR OF THE BILL.

IT ALLOWS CHURCHES,

SYNAGOGUES AND MOSQUES TO

SEEK RELIEF FOR THE

DISASTER.

COMMUNITIES SAY WORSHIP

CENTERS PROVIDE FOOD AND

SHELTER.

CRITICS ARGUE THE BILL GOES

AGAINST CONSTITUTIONAL

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND

STATE.

THE VOTE NOW GOES TO THE

SENATE.

AN OHIO SCHOOL BOARD HAS

VOTED 4-1 TO KEEP A PORTRAIT

OF JESUS HANGING IN THE

SCHOOL.

THE PORTRAIT HAS BEEN ON

DISPLAY FOR 65 YEARS, AND

THE VOTE COMES DESPITE A

FEDERAL LAWSUIT.

THE FEDERAL CIVIL LIBERTIES

FOUNDATION -- THEY SAY IT

SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM

JACKSON MIDDLE SCHOOL, WHICH

IS ABOUT 65 MILES SOUTH OF

COLUMBUS.

THE SCHOOL BOARD SAYS THE

PORTRAIT BELONGS TO THE

STUDENT GROUP THAT PUT IT

UP.

THE BOARD ALSO SAYS IT WILL

LET ANOTHER STUDENT CLUBS

HANG PORTRAITS, TOO.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, VALENTINE'S

DAY IS A SWEET CELEBRATION

FOR AMANDA AND ROB MOODY,

NOT BECAUSE OF CANDY AND

CAKE, BUT BECAUSE THE TWO OF

THEM ARE TOGETHER AND

HAPPY.

YEARS AGO, THEIR

RELATIONSHIP GOT OFF TO A

VERY ROCKY START.

AND IT WENT FROM BAD TO

WORSE BEFORE IT BEGAN TO GET

BETTER.

SHE KNEW SHE WAS

BEAUTIFUL.

I ACTUALLY DIDN'T LIKE

HIM AT ALL.

HE WAS VERY RUDE.

Reporter: AMANDA AND

ROB MOODY MET IN THE AIR

FORCE.

AMANDA WAS 18, AND ROB WAS

20.

THEY BOTH DESCRIBED

THEMSELVES AS IMMATURE,

CAREER-DRIVEN, AND SELL

SELFISH.

THEY JUDGED ONE ANOTHER EVEN

MORE HARSHLY.

SHE WANTED TO BE THE

CENTER OF ATTENTION.

HE WOULD SPEAK VERY

DEGRADING TOWARDS WOMEN.

Reporter: BUT AS TIME

WENT ON --

I GOT TO KNOW HER A

LITTLE BETTER.

I SAW PAST THE ATTITUDE SHE

HAD.

I GOT TO SEE ANOTHER SIDE TO

HER, WHICH WAS ATTRACTIVE TO

ME.

WE ENDED UP SPENDING MORE

TIME TOGETHER.

WE LAUGHED AND TRAVELLED.

HE STARTED BEING NICE TO ME,

EVEN WHEN HE WAS STILL RUDE

TO EVERYBODY ELSE.

I LOVED THAT.

HE LEANED OVER AND WHISPERED

IN MY EAR, YOU'RE THE BEST

THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO

ME.

WHEN HE DID THAT, IT

IMMEDIATELY WENT FROM

FRIENDS TO MORE SERIOUS.

Reporter: AS THEIR

ROMANCE GREW, SO DID THEIR

CONCERNS ABOUT ONE ANOTHER.

WHEN WE WERE OUT IN

PUBLIC, SHE WOULD PUT ON

THIS -- YOU KNOW, THIS HARD

FACADE.

WHEN HE DID SOMETHING I

DIDN'T LIKE, I WOULD TELL

HIM, IT'S OVER, ALL THE

TIME.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY WHAT

I WANTED TO SAY, AND THEN

SHE COULD DEAL WITH IT.

Reporter: BUT INSTEAD

INSTEAD OF HEEDING THE

WARNINGS, ROB PROPOSED

MARRIAGE TO AMANDA AT THE

EIFFEL TOWER, AND SHE

ACCEPTED.

I THINK HE REALIZED THAT

I HAD NO SKILLS TO BE

ANYBODY'S WIFE.

I DID NOT LIKE TO COOK,

CLEAN, AND IT WAS JUST A

MESS.

I WOULD CALL HER LAZY.

YOU KNOW, YOU'RE AN ADULT,

CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF.

I HAD THE TOTAL ATTITUDE,

LOOK, IF YOU DON'T TREAT ME

THE WAY I WANT TO BE

TREATED, IF YOU DON'T DO THE

THINGS I WANT YOU TO DO,

I'LL FIND SOMEBODY WHO

WILL.

Reporter: THEY ARGUED

ABOUT SOMETHING ALMOST EVERY

DAY.

I GOT REALLY UPSET

BECAUSE OF HER BEING

CAREER-DRIVEN.

I WOULD RECEIVE A LOT OF

AWARDS AND PRAISE, AND HE

WOULD SAY THINGS LIKE, IF

THEY KNEW WHO YOU REALLY

WERE, YOU WON'T GET ANY OF

THOSE AWARDS.

BUT THE MORE HE WOULD SAY

THOSE THINGS, THE MORE I

DECIDED BELIEVING, YOU'RE

REALLY NOTHING.

EVENTUALLY SHE WOULD JUST

WALK OUT.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, IT

HAS GOT TO BE HIM.

BECAUSE THE ONLY TIME MY

LIFE IS A DISASTER IS BEING

WITH HIM.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER, AMANDA WALKED OUT FOR

GOOD.

SHE FILED FOR DIVORCE, PUT

THEIR HOME UP FOR SALE, AND

THEIR LEGAL SEPARATION

BEGAN.

IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE HIT

ME IN THE GUT.

AND I WAS LIKE, WHAT?

I CALLED MY MOTHER, AND SHE

SAID IT IS NEVER GOING TO

WORK UNLESS YOU HAVE GOD IN

YOUR RELATIONSHIP.

SO I STARTED A CHURCH AND I

STARTED GOING.

I WAS, LIKE, I SURRENDER,

LORD, I SURRENDER.

I TRIED EVERYTHING.

MY LIFE WAS A MESS.

I SURRENDER.

AND SO I ACCEPTED CHRIST

INTO MY LIFE AT THAT TIME.

Reporter: ROB'S MOTHER

CALLED EVERY MORNING TO PRAY

WITH HIM.

NOT JUST ABOUT AMANDA AND

I, BUT JUST MAKING ME THE

MAN I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE.

AND I WANTED TO BE THAT

MAN.

I REALLY WANTED TO BE A GOOD

HUSBAND.

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO.

Reporter: ROB

DESPERATELY WANTED AMANDA

BACK.

AS I WAS PRAYING, I KNEW

THAT GOD WAS GOING TO

RESTORE OUR MARRIAGE.

Reporter: AMANDA, ON

THE OTHER HAND, WANTED

NOTHING TO DO WITH ROB.

I WAS SO ANGRY WITH HIM.

I FELT LIKE HE DESTROYED

ME.

AND I WENT INTO BIG-TIME

DEPRESSION.

I JUST FELT REALLY, REALLY

ALONE.

Reporter: SEVERAL

MONTHS LATER, ROB AND AMANDA

MEANT TO COMPLETE THE

CLOSING ON THE SALE OF THEIR

HOME.

AND I REMEMBER WHEN ROB

WALKED INTO THE OFFICE.

HE LOOKED SO HANDSOME, LIKE

HE WAS GLOWING.

AND NOT ONLY WAS HE -- NOT

ONLY DID HE LOOK REALLY

NICE, HE WAS REALLY NICE TO

ME.

Reporter: AFTER THE

CLOSING, AMANDA NEEDED ONE

MORE SIGNATURE FROM ROB TO

FINALIZE THEIR DIVORCE.

AS ROB SIGNED THE PAPERS,

HIS FAITH PLUMMETTED.

I GOT TO A POINT WHERE I

WAS JUST, LIKE, I'M DONE.

Reporter: SEVERAL DAYS

LATER, TO ROB'S AMAZEMENT,

AMANDA CALLED.

AND SHE SAID, WHAT

HAPPENED TO YOU?

AND I SAID, GOD HAS CHANGED

MY LIFE.

I'M A CHRISTIAN NOW.

I JUST KEPT THINKING, I

DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT

GOD.

BUT IF THIS IS WHAT GOD CAN

DO TO A PERSON, I WANT IT.

I NEED IT.

I NEED IT.

I WAS JUST, LIKE, WELL,

COME TO CHURCH WITH ME AND

YOU CAN GET WHAT I HAVE.

HE PREACHED ON THE

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF THE

FATHER.

AND I NEVER KNEW THAT IN MY

WHOLE LIFE.

THAT ANYBODY COULD LOVE ME

LIKE THAT.

I WANTED THAT.

AND I SAID, YES, I WANT TO

GET SAVED.

AND I DID.

I GOT SAVED.

Reporter: JUST EIGHT

MONTHS LATER, AMANDA

PROPOSED TO ROB.

AND I ASKED HIM, WILL YOU

MARRY ME AGAIN?

AND HE SAID YES.

WHEN WE WENT TO THE

COURTHOUSE --

IT WAS JUST ERASING

SOMETHING, JUST MAKING

SOMETHING WRONG, RIGHT.

Reporter: ROB AND

AMANDA SAY REBUILDING A

MARRIAGE ISN'T EASY.

THAT'S WHAT THIS

REPRESENTS TO ME.

WHAT WE WERE TRYING TO DO

FELL APART.

AND WHAT HE DID RIGHT HERE,

IT'S FOREVER.

IT IS FOR DIFFERENT

PEOPLE WHO LOVE GOD FIRST.

Reporter: THE MOODYS

MUST BE DOING SOMETHING

RIGHT.

12 YEARS LATER, THE FORMER

CHIEF MASTER SERGEANT IS

HOME-SCHOOLING FOUR

DAUGHTERS.

AND SHE IS WRITING BOOKS

ABOUT PRAYER.

AND THE FORMER CHIEF'S

MASTER SERGEANT, WELL, HE IS

STILL WORKING HARD IN THE

AIR FORCE AND VERY BUSY

LOVING HER.

I CAN'T IMAGINE LIFE

WITHOUT HER.

I'M SO THANKFUL HE PRAYED

FOR ME.

I THINK WE GIVE UP TOO

EASILY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT IT

LOOKS LIKE.

FIGHT UNTIL THE END.

Pat: YOU KNOW, WE TALK

ABOUT LOVE AND MARRIAGE.

THERE IS NO REAL LOVE

OUTSIDE OF THE LOVE OF GOD.

WHEN JESUS COMES INTO YOUR

LIFE, HIS LOVE IS SHED

ABROAD IN YOUR HEART.

AND YOU SEE PEOPLE THROUGH

HIS EYES.

YOU DON'T SEE THEIR FLAWS.

YOU SEE WHAT THEY COULD BE

IN CHRIST.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE IS

A DIFFERENT WAY OF THINKING

AND LIVING.

AND WHAT I ASK YOU RIGHT

NOW, IF YOU'RE HAVING

TROUBLE WITH YOUR MARRIAGE,

IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE

WITH YOUR CHILDREN, IF

YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE WITH

LIFE, WHY DON'T YOU TURN IT

OVER TO JESUS.

WHY DON'T YOU LET HIM TAKE

OVER.

AND THEN HE COMES INTO YOU,

AND THEN HE SEES THINGS WITH

HIS EYES, NOT YOURS.

AND SO WHAT USED TO BE YOUR

MIND THINKING, IT'S NOW THE

MIND OF CHRIST.

IT'S A MIND OF LOVE, OF

COMPASSION, OF

SELF-SACRIFICE.

AND THAT'S THE KIND OF MIND

THAT MAKES FOR GOOD

MARRIAGES.

IT MAKES FOR A GOOD LIFE.

AND IF YOU WANT THAT, LET'S

ASK HIM RIGHT NOW TO COME

INTO YOUR LIFE.

PRAY THESE WORDS: JESUS --

THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, I'VE SEEN THE WORLD

THROUGH MY EYES FOR SO MANY

YEARS.

AND I'VE MADE SOME SERIOUS

MISTAKES.

BUT, LORD, RIGHT NOW I

SURRENDER TO YOU, AND I ASK

YOU TO COME INTO MY LIFE.

LIVE IN ME, AND FROM THIS

MOMENT ON LET ME SEE LIFE,

PRESENT AND FUTURE, WITH

YOUR EYES, NOT MINE.

I GIVE YOU MY LIFE, LORD.

TAKE OVER.

THANK YOU.

IN YOUR HOLY NAME, AMEN.

WELL, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

I'VE GOT A COUPLE OF THINGS,

IF YOU WANT THEM.

THERE IS A BOOK CALLED "LOVE

AND MARRIAGE."

IT MIGHT BE A HELP TO YOU.

I THINK YOU'LL FIND THIS

INTERESTING.

AND WE ALSO HAVE SOMETHING

CALLED A NEW DAY.

IF YOU'VE GIVEN YOUR HEART

TO THE LORD, WHAT DO YOU DO

NEXT?

1-800-759-0700.

CALL IN AND SAY, I PRAYED

WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

AND THIS IS WHAT I'VE DONE.

I HAVE GIVEN MY HEART TO

JESUS.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING UP,

A FATHER RISKS HIS LIFE FOR

THE LOVE OF HIS DAUGHTER.

WE HAVE THEIR AMAZING STORY

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: THE DAD IN OUR

NEXT STORY HAD A POWERFUL

LOVE FOR HIS YOUNG

DAUGHTER.

EVERY MORNING HE WENT TO

WORK DEEP IN THE COAL MINES

OF CHINA.

IT'S A DANGEROUS JOB.

BUT THIS HARD-WORKING DAD

RISKED HIS LIFE TO TRY TO

SAVE HIS OWN CHILD.

Terry: SHUN WORKS CLOSE

TO 2,000 FEET UNDERGROUND AS

A COAL MINER.

HIS SHIFTS ARE NEVER LESS

THAN 12 HOURS LONG, AND HE

RARELY GETS A DAY OFF.

HE DOES IT ALL FOR HIS

5-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER,

CONIONION. CONION.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

SERIOUS HEART DEFECT WHEN

SHE WAS BABY.

ALL OF THE DOCTORS SAID

UNLESS SHE GETS SURGERY, SHE

WOULD DIE.

SHE WAS SO WEAK AND

FRAGILE, AND ALWAYS SICK.

IT BROKE MY HEART TO SEE MY

DAUGHTER SUFFERING LIKE

THAT.

BUT WE COULDN'T GET ANY HELP

BECAUSE WE COULDN'T PAY FOR

SURGERY.

Terry: DESPITE THE

DANGER OF HIS JOB, HE ONLY

BRINGS IN $158 A MONTH.

SOMETIMES THE MINES

COLLAPSE AND GET FLOODED,

BUT I RATHER RISK DYING

MYSELF THAN LOSING MY

DAUGHTER.

SHE IS WORTH EVERYTHING TO

MY WIFE AND ME.

Terry: AS HARD AS HE

WORKED, SHUN STILL COULD NOT

RAISE ENOUGH MONEY FOR

SURGERY, AND CONYON'S HEART

CONDITION TOOK A TURN FOR

THE WORSE.

SOME PEOPLE TOLD ME IT

WASN'T WORTH IT TO TRY TO

SAVE HER LIFE ANYMORE, AND

TO JUST FORGET ABOUT IT.

BUT WE DIDN'T GIVE THAT A

SECOND THOUGHT.

Terry: THEN CONYON'S

MOTHER HEARD THAT CBN WAS

COMING TO TOWN TO HELP FUND

HEART SURGERY FOR CHILDREN

LIKE HER DAUGHTER.

SOON A DOCTOR REPAIRED THE

HOLE IN HER HEART AND

REPOSITIONED HER ARTERY.

I FEEL SO RELIEVED NOW.

I WAS ALWAYS SO CONCERNED

ABOUT MY DAUGHTER.

BUT NOT ANYMORE.

ALL OF MY WORRIES ARE GONE.

AND I BELIEVE CONYONHAYON

HAS A VERY BRIGHT FUTURE.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Pat: YOU DIDN'T KNOW

THAT, DID YOU?

THAT YOU WERE WORKING IN THE

HEART OF CHINA, DEEP IN

CHINA.

CBN, WELL, WE ARE THERE.

WE ARE THERE IN YOUR NAME,

IN THE NAME OF THE LORD,

REACHING OUT TO PEOPLE WHO

ARE SUFFERING AND WHO ARE

HURTING.

I WANT YOU TO JOIN OUR "700

CLUB."

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH, AND YOU CAN BE

PART OF AN ARMY OF HUNDREDS

OF THOUSANDS, MILLIONS, WHO

ARE REACHING OUT TO MAKE

THIS A BETTER WORLD AND TO

HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE

SUFFERING.

WE HAVE SOMETHING WE WANT TO

GIVE YOU WHEN YOU JOIN.

GORDON HAS PUT TOGETHER A

GROUP OF STORIES ABOUT "LIFE

BEYOND THE GRAVE," AND

PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED COME

BACK TO TELL US ABOUT IT.

THESE ARE GRIPPING,

REAL-LIFE STORIES AND YOU

DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

TERRY, WE'VE GOT A FEW

REPORTS --

Terry: WE TELL PEOPLE

TO CALL OUR PRAYER CENTER,

AND GREAT THINGS ARE

HAPPENING IN THERE.

THIS IS SANDRA, SHE LIVES IN

WHITESTONE, NEW YORK, AND

SHE HAD A TOOTHACHE AND WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

PAT, YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT SOMEBODY'S

MOUTH BEING HEALED.

SANDRA CLAIMED IT FOR

HERSELF AND SAID IMMEDIATELY

THE PAIN LEFT AND HAS NOT

RETURNED.

AND THIS MAN CALLED BECAUSE

HIS MOM WAS GOING INTO

SURGERY.

THINGS WERE NOT LOOKING GOOD

AND HE CALLED AGAIN FOR HER

TO BE HEALED.

SHE HAD A TURNAROUND, AND

THE DOCTORS ARE EXPECTING

HER TO BE FINE AND EXPECTING

HER TO MAKE A FULL

RECOVERY.

AND THE DAY BEFORE, DOCTORS

SAID THE OPPOSITE, SO THEY

ARE ACKNOWLEDGING.

STEPHANIE HAS A CURVATURE OF

THE SPINE, AND HEARD THE

WORD THAT THERE IS A HEALING

FOR A SOMEBODY WITH A

CURVATURE OF THE SPINE, AND

SHE CALLED "THE 700 CLUB" TO

TELL US THE PAIN IS HEALED

AND HAS NOT RETURNED.

Pat: GOD IS A GOD OF

MORE OR LESS AND HE LOVES

YOU AND BLESSES.

TOMORROW, WE HAVE

CONFESSIONS FROM A FORMER

SHOCK JOCK.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 1

CORINTHIANS 13: "LOVE

BELIEVES ALL THINGS, HOPES

ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL

THINGS.

LOVE NEVER FAILS."

HAPPY CA VALENTINE'S DAY.

WE LOVE YOU AND THE LORD.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
