Lee: COMING UP...WE

CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY

MONTH WITH A LOOK AT

TRAILBLAZING POSITIONS.

I THOUGHT THEY WERE

HEROS.

Lee: FROM THE DOCTORS

IN THE CIVIL WAR --

IT IS HARD FOR ME TO EVEN

IMAGINE THE CHALLENGES THEY

FACED.

Lee: TO THE

NEUROSURGEONS TODAY.

IT'S A MIRACLE.

Lee: HOW THEY OVERCAME

THE ODDS AND CHANGED THE

COURSE OF HISTORY.

PLUS, A LIVE PERFORMANCE

FROM NEW SONG ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

I'M COMING ALIVE *

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

TERRY, THERE IS GOOD NEWS

FOR THE LADIES.

A WOMAN HAS FINALLY WON THE

POLL POSITION AT THE DAYTONA

500.

DANICA PATRICK DROVE THAT

RASCAL OVER 195 MILES PER

HOUR.

Terry: I CAN'T

IMAGINE.

YOU HAVE AN EXPERIENCE WITH

DRIVING THAT.

Pat: I DROVE 30 LAPS

DOWN AT CHARLESTON.

I COULDN'T GET IT OVER 135.

I WANTED TO GO FASTER, AND I

KEPT FLOORING THE THING, AND

THAT'S ALL I COULD GE GET.

THE OTHER THING, PROTESTS IN

WASHINGTON TODAY.

THERE IS GOING TO BE A

WINDCHILL OF 18, AND HEARTY

SOULS ARE PROTECTING GLOBAL

WARMING.

Terry: AND SENSES

FLOWING TO THE WIND.

Pat: SENSES FLOWING TO

THE WIND.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE COLD

UP.

ALL RIGHT.

I WROTE A BOOK ON IT.

I'M THINKING ABOUT

REPUBLISHING "THE END OF THE

AGE," BUT THIS ONE CAME OUT

OF NOWHERE.

IT IS THE BIGGEST METEOR TO

HIT EARTH IN OVER 100

YEARS.

IT BLEW UP OVER RUSSIA ON

FRIDAY, AND NO ONE SAW IT

COMING.

Terry: NOW THE UNITED

NATIONS, CONGRESS, AND

SCIENC SCIENTISTS ARE

ASKING, HOW CAN WE FIND

THESE BEFORE THEY CAUSE

UNTOLD DAMAGE.

Reporter: THE METEOR

THAT EXPLODED OVER RUSSIA

CARRIED THE EXPLOSIVE FORCE

OF 20 TO 30 HIROSHIMA

BOMBS.

AND A 150 ASTEROID MISSED

EARTH BY ONLY 17,000 MILES.

NASA THAT IS THERE WAS NO

CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO,

BUT IT RAISES THE SPECTOR OF

THE THREAT THAT ASTEROIDS

CAN POSE TO EARTH.

EXPERTS SAY THIS COULD BE A

COSMIC WARNING SHOT AND A

REMINDER TO CONTINUE TO

INVEST IN SPACE SCIENCE.

20 YEARS AGO, IF DA14

FLEW BY THE EARTH, WE WOULD

HAVE NEVER KNOWN IT.

Reporter: THE U.N. AND

THE HOUSE SCIENCE SPACE AND

TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE

ANNOUNCED PLANS TO

INVESTIGATE THE THREAT OF

ASTEROIDS TO EARTH.

ONE FORMER NASA ASTRONAUT IS

EXPLORING A PLAN TO

INVESTIGATE ASTEROIDS.

IT COULD GIVE EARTH DECADES

OF AS ADVANCED WARNING.

WITH 10, 20, 50 YEARS

OFNITY, IT IS

STRAIGHTFORWARD TO REFLECT

AN AFTE ASTEROID.

Reporter: HE SAYS HIS

RESEARCH WILL COST

$20 MILLION TO 30 MILLION.

OFFICIALS ESTIMATE IT WILL

COST OVER $33 MILLION TO

REPAIR DAMAGE FROM THE

RUSSIAN METEOR.

HOW COULD WE LET OUR

CIVILIZATION OR PARTS OF OUR

CIVILIZATION OR HUGE PARTS

OF CITIES GO AWAY, BE

DESTROYED, IF WE COULD HAVE

DONE SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Reporter: HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "THE END OF THE AGE,"

BECAUSE I BELIEVE THE

PROPHECY THAT WAS GIVEN BY

JESUS CHRIST WILL BE

FULFILLED ALMOST VERBATIM

ONLY BY AN ASTEROID STRIKE

ON EARTH.

IT WILL BE A HORRIBLE THING

TO CONTEMPLATE.

I WROTE ABOUT THE

DEVASTATION AND WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN, AND ONE THAT WAS A

HALF MILE, JUST A HALF MILE

IN DIAMETER, AND WHAT IT DID

TO THE WHOLE EARTH.

THEY HAVE THOSE THAT --

THERE ARE FIVE MILLION HUNKS

OF ROCKS AROUND THE ORBIT OF

THE EARTH.

Terry: WHAT I THOUGHT

IT WAS SO FASCINATING BEHIND

YOUR BOOK IS YOU DID ALL OF

THE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

BEHIND IT, THE IMPACT THAT

WOULD HAVE.

WE DON'T REALIZE WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN TO THE EARTH.

Pat: IT SHAKES THE

EARTH, AND THE TSUNAMIS.

IN MINE, WHAT IT DID TO ASIA

WAS EXTRAORDINARY.

WE HAVE NO IDEA THE

EXPLOSIVE FORCE.

MINE WAS THREE BILLION

POUNDS.

I THINK IT FULFILLS BIBLE

PROPHECY.

I MAY BRING THAT BOOK OUT

AGAIN BECAUSE IT WAS SO

TIMELY IN TODAY'S WORLD.

THE BIG PEOPLE WAS PEOPLE

IGNORED IT.

AND THE SCIENCE COMMUNITY

REFUSED TO APPROPRIATE THE

NECESSARY MONEY.

I HAVE A CORRECTION IN MY

EAR.

THERE IS A PRODUCER.

AND THE PRODUCER SAID IT WAS

NOT 18° IN WASHINGTON.

IT WAS 16°.

AND THEY SAID THE MARCH

AGAINST GLOBAL WARMING IN

THAT 16° WEATHER.

THE WINDCHILL -- IT WAS

YESTERDAY, NOT TODAY.

THEY MAY HAVE ANOTHER ONE

TODAY.

WE'VE GOT TO TAKE CARE OF

GLOBAL WARMING, ESPECIALLY

IN THE SNOWSTORMS.

WELL, ONE OF THE NATION'S

LEADING SURGEONS GOT A GREAT

DEAL OF ATTENTION WHEN HE

SPOKE OUT ABOUT HEALTH CARE

AND TAXES RECENTLY AT A

PRESIDENTIAL PRAYER

BREAKFAST.

NOW HE IS EXPLAINING WHY HE

MADE THOSE REMARKS.

Lee: PAT, DR. BEN

CARSON SAYS HE ASKED GOD TO

SHOW HIM WHAT TO SAY BEFORE

HE MADE HIS SPEECH AT THIS

MONTH'S NATIONAL PRAYER

BREAKFAST IN WASHINGTON,

D.C.

CARSON QUESTIONED HIGHER

TAXES ON PEOPLE WHO MAKE

MORE MONEY, AND HE TALKED

ABOUT A SIMPLER FLAT TAX,

LIKE THE IDEA OF THE TITHE

FROM THE BIBLE.

HE ALSO TALKED ABOUT

HANDLING HEALTH CARE FAR

DIFFERENTLY THAN THE

PRESIDENT'S OBAMA CARE

PLAN.

SO FAR HIS SPEECH HAS GOTTEN

MORE THAN TWO MILLION VIEWS

ON YouTube, AND

CATAPULTED HIS BOOK "AMERICA

THE BEAUTIFUL," TO THE BEVEL

SELLERS' LIST.

ON ABC'S "THIS WEEK," HE

SAYS THERE IS ANOTHER REASON

FOR THE STRONG REACTION.

I MAY HAVE COVERED THE

FACT THAT BEFORE I GAVE THAT

TALK, I PRAYED AND ASKED GOD

TO GIVE ME WISDOM, WHAT TO

SAY.

WHAT WOULD RESONATE.

WHAT WOULD BE IMPORTANT.

I DON'T THINK IT WAS

PARTICULARILY POLITICAL.

Lee: WHEN ASKED FOR HIS

OPINION ON PRESIDENT OBAMA,

DR. CARSON SAID HE IS A VERY

TALENTED POLITICIAN.

AS FOR HIS OWN POLITICAL

ASPIRATIONS, PAT, HE SAID, I

LEAVE THAT UP TO GOD.

Pat: ON ONE OF THE

BLOGS, THEY'RE SAYING CARSON

FOR PRESIDENT.

THEY JUST THINK IT WAS A

TREMENDOUS SPEECH.

YOU KNOW, THIS MAN HAS BEEN

ON THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF

REGENT UNIVERSITY FOR A

NUMBER OF YEARS.

HE IS A DISTINGUISHED MAN.

EXTRAORDINARY STORY.

HIS MOTHER WAS ILLITERATE.

HE DIDN'T KNOW IT.

AND HIS MOTHER SAID TO HER

YOUNG SON, YOU WILL READ

THREE BOOKS A WEEK, AND YOU

WILL WRITE ME BOOK REVIEWS.

AND SO THEY READ THE BOOKS

AND WROTE THE BOOK REVIEWS,

AND HANDED THEM TO THE

MOTHER, NOT KNOWING THE

MOTHER COULDN'T READ WHAT

THEY WERE WRITING.

AS A RESULT OF THAT, HE

MOVED TO THE TOP OF HIS

CLASS, AND WOUND UP GOING TO

YALE AND A DISTINGUISHED

MEDICAL SCHOOL.

HE WAS THE DIRECTOR OF

PEDIATRIC NEUROSURGEON AT

JOHN HOPKINS UNIVERSITY AND

WAS THE FIRST MAN TO OPERATE

ON CONJOINED TWINS, TWINS

THAT WERE JOINED AT THE

HEAD.

Terry: THE HEAD OF ALL

PLACES.

Pat: NOBODY HAD EVER

DONE THAT.

I SAID, HOW DID YOU DO

THAT.

HE SAID HE FROZE THEM AND

DID THE SURGERY.

Terry: HE IS ONE OF THE

MOST HUMBLE PEOPLE I THINK I

HAVE EVER MET.

Pat: YEAH.

HE HAS OVER 50 HONORARY

DOCTOR RATES ARTISTS, AND

ATES, AND HE IS HUMBLE.

Lee: HERE IS ANOTHER

STORY, PAT.

A NEW STUDY INDICATES BETTER

TELEVISION EQUALS BETTER

BEHAVIOR AMONG CHILDREN.

THE STUDY SUGGESTS THAT

CHANGING THE CHANNEL FROM

VIOLENT TO EDUCATIONAL

PROGRAMMING CAN CHANGE THE

BEHAVIOR OF CHILDREN.

IT SHOWS THE IMPROVEMENT IS

MODEST AND FADES OVER TIME,

BUT LEAD AUTHOR DR. DIMITRI

SAYS IT PROVES WHAT CHILDREN

WATCH IS AS IMPORTANT AS HOW

MUCH THEY WATCH.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS

DOWNPLAYING AN IMMIGRATION

PLAN THAT WAS LEAKED TO THE

MEDIA.

THEY SAY IT IS ONLY A BACKUP

MEASURE IN CASE CONGRESS

CANNOT COME UP OF IT'S OWN.

IT WOULD CREATES VISAS FOR

THOSE IN THE COUNTRY

ILLEGALLY.

IT WOULD ALSO ADD MORE

FUNDING FOR BORDER

SECURITY.

REPUBLICANS ATTACKED THE

PLAN, HOWEVER.

FLORIDA SENATOR MARCO RUBIO

SAYS IF THE SENATE ACTUALLY

PROPOSES THE BILL, IT WOULD

BE DEAD ON ARRIVAL IN

CONGRESS, AND OTHERS WONDER

IF THE PRESIDENT IS SIMPLY

PLAYING POLITICS IN

IMMIGRATION.

BY GIVEN ADVANTAGE TO

THOSE WHO CUT IN FRONT OF

THE LINE FOR IMMIGRANTS CAME

HERE LEGALLY, AND NOT

DEALING WITH BORDER SECURITY

ADEQUATELY, THAT TELLS US HE

IS LOOKING FOR A PARTISAN

ADVANTAGE.

DOES THE PRESIDENT REALLY

WANT A RESULT?

Lee: McCAIN SAYS THE

WHITE HOUSE NEEDS TO GIVE

SENATORS A CHANCE TO FINISH

THEIR OWN PLAN.

CONCERN OVER NEW GUN CONTROL

LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY HAS LED

TO A RUN ON AMMUNITION AND A

NATIONWIDE SHORTAGE.

Reporter: LOCAL POLICE

DEPARTMENTS ARE HAVING A

HARD TIME FINDING BULLETS TO

FILL THEIR GUNS.

SOME WORRY IT COULD LEAD TO

A DANGEROUS SHORTAGE THAT

COULD AFFECT THE WAY LAW

ENFORCEMENT AGENTS DO THEIR

JOB.

WE WERE ISSUED A BOX A

MONTH TO PRACTICE ON OUR

OWN.

WE NO LONGER GET THAT

BECAUSE THE AM MOW IS NOT

THERE.

Reporter: 40 CALIBER

BULLETS MOST OFTEN USED IN

POLICE TRAINING, A 50-ROUND

BOX USED TO COST ABOUT $30.

IN THE WAKE OF THE NEWTON,

CONNECTICUT, SHOOTING, THE

DEMANDS ARE UP, WHICH MEANS

SUPPLIERS ARE RAISING PRICES

AS WELL.

ALONG WITH THE TRAGEDY

INCIDENTS THAT HAPPEN, THE

FEAR OF WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN WITH THE GOVERNMENT

COMES INTO PLAY, AND PEOPLE

REACT TO THAT.

Reporter: AND SOME

AGENCIES ARE PLAYING ORDER

FOR AMMO AND ARE FORCED TO

WAIT MONTHS FOR IT TO

ARRIVED.

I BELIEVE IT IS GOING TO

GET WORSE.

THE ROUNDS WILL BE FEWER.

Reporter: ANDREA

GARRETT, CBN NEWS.

Lee: AND WE'RE TOLD

THAT GUN STORES ARE ALSO

RUNNING SHORT OF COMMON

PRICES OF AMMUNITION.

ONE GUN SHOP OWNER IN NORTH

CAROLINA TELLS "U.S.A.

TODAY" WE ARE ACTUALLY IN

UNCHARTERED TERRITORY.

OUR STORE IS 53 YEARS OLD,

AND WE HAVE NEVER SEEN

ANYTHING LIKE THIS.

PEOPLE FEEL THIS

ADMINISTRATION IS VERY

ANTI-GUN AND THEY'RE GOING

FOR THE LEGAL GUN OWNER.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE

DOESN'T WANT TO VIOLATE GUN

OWNERS' CONSTITUTIONAL

RIGHTS.

FOUR FOREIGN WORKERS IN

LIBYA HAVE BEEN ARRESTED ON

SPREADING CHRISTIANITY AND

GIVING OUT CHRISTIAN

LITERATURE.

PREACHING THE GOSPEL IS

AGAINST THE LAW IN THE MOST

OF MUSLIM NATION.

ONE OF THE SUSPECTS IS A

SWEDISH AMERICA.

THE OTHERS ARE FROM SOUTH

AFRICA, EGYPT, AND SOUTH

KOREA.

THE POLICE ARRESTED THEM

TUESDAY AND CONFISCATED SOME

40,000 BOOKS.

ANOTHER 20,000 BOOKS WERE

REPORTEDLY DISTRIBUTED.

CHRISTIAN HEALING EVANGELIST

T.L. OSBORNE HAS DIED.

HIS DAUGHTER SAID HE WAS IN

NO PAIN AND HAD NO

SICKNESS.

THE LORD SIMPLY TOOK HIS

BREADTH AWAY.

OSBORNE SPEASHE ESTABLISHED

OSBORNE MINISTRIES IN 1949

WITH HIS WIFE.

THEY HAD DAILY MEETINGS THAT

FEATURED UP TO 300,000

PEOPLE.

HIS MINISTRY'S MOTTO WAS:

"ONE WAY, JESUS.

ONE JOB, E EVANGELISM."

THREE OF HIS CHILDREN DIED

PREMATURELY, AND HIS WIFE,

DAISY, DIED IN HIS ARMS.

HE TALKED ABOUT THAT

EXPERIENCE ON "THE 700

CLUB."

DISCOURAGEMENT, AND

EVEN -- WELL, DEPRESSION,

OPPRESSION.

IT IS A MATTER OF THE

THOUGHTS THAT WE CHOOSE TO

RETAIN.

IF WE THINK DEPRESSING

THOUGHTS, WE'LL BE

DEPRESSED.

I HAD TO CHANGE MY WAY OF

THINKING.

INSTEAD OF OF LAMENTING

DAISY'S DEATH AND BEING GONE

FROM ME, I SAID TO MYSELF,

WAIT.

THIS ISN'T HELPING ME AND IT

WON'T HELP ANYBODY ELSE.

SO I CHANGED MY THOUGHTS AND

I DREW FROM MY MEMORY BANK

AND REMEMBERED WHEN SHE WAS

WITH ME.

AND SO I COMFORT MYSELF.

GOD COMFORTS ME.

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE

CONTROL.

Lee: T.L. OSBORNE WAS

89 YEARS OLD.

PAT, I KNOW YOU ENJOYED

INTERVIEWING HIM AND YOU

CALLED HIM A FRIEND.

Pat: A DEAR FRIEND.

HE IS A WONDERFUL MAN.

I TELL YOU THE MIRACLES THAT

MAN HAD, AND HIS BOOKS WERE

SO INSPIRING.

HE WOULD GO IN AND PREACH

JESUS.

AND HE WOULD TALK ABOUT THE

POWER OF JESUS, AND AS HE

DID, THOUSANDS HAD

MIRACULOUS HEALINGS.

AMPUTATED LIMBS GREW, AND

CRIPPLED PEOPLE STOOD UP

STRAIGHT.

AND ALL KINDS OF CANCERS

FELL OFF.

IT WAS JUST UNBELIEVABLE

WHAT ATTENDED THAT MAN.

BUT HE HAD A VISITATION OF

JESUS, AND HE WAS HIS

SERVANT.

SO WE LAMENT THE FACT, BUT

HE WAS 89 YEARS OLD.

AND I GUESS THE TIME COMES

THAT PEOPLE DIE.

Terry: BUT HE WAS A

GREAT MAN OF GOD.

AND WHY MANY NATIONS OF THE

EARTH WERE TOUCHED BY HIS

WORK.

Pat: OVERSEAS.

HE HAD A MINISTRY IN EGYPT

AND WAS ACTIVE IN AFRICA.

BUT HE WENT IN ASIA AND WAS

A COMPLETE FAILURE.

AND HE CAME BACK AND HAD AN

EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS.

THE LORD SAID, PREACH THE

GOSPEL.

DON'T TALK ABOUT ALL OF THIS

STUFF.

DON'T TALK ABOUT THE THEE

LOGICAL DOCTRINES, BUT

PREACH THE GOSPEL.

WE MISS HIM.

THE GREAT GIANTS OF THE

FAITH COME LIKE THESE

METEORS, AND THEY GO AND THE

LORD RAISES UP SOMEBODY

ELSE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: THIS YEAR MARKS

THE 150th ANNIVERSARY OF

THE EMANCIPATION

PROCLAMATION.

SLAVERY HAD DIVIDED

AMERICA.

BUT FEW PEOPLE KNEW HOW MANY

BLACK MEN WHO HAD BEEN SET

FREE WHO JOINED THE UNION

ARMY, INCLUDING SEVERAL

AFRICAN-AMERICAN DOCTORS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY THAT MAYBE FEW OF US

HAVE EVER HEARD.

Reporter: TWO SUBJECTS

FASCINATE RETIRED FASHION

DR. ROBERT SWATHON, HISTORY

AND MEDICINE.

MEDICAL HISTORY IS A

PARTICULAR INTEREST,

ESPECIALLY CONTRIBUTIONS BY

AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

IN HIS RESEARCH, HE FOUND

THAT A HANDFUL OF BLACK MEN

SERVED AS DOCTORS IN THE

CIVIL WAR.

SOMETHING HE WRITES ABOUT IN

HIS BOOK, "PROLOGUE TO

CHANGE."

WHEN PRESIDENT LINCOLN FREED

THE SLAVES IN 1863, NEARLY

200,000 BLACKS JOINED THE

UNION ARMY.

OF THE PHYSICIANS WE HAVE

IDENTIFIED, SERVING WITH THE

ARMY, THREE OF THEM WERE

COMMISSIONED OFFICERS.

THE OTHER NINE WERE CONTRACT

SURGEONS.

THE THINGS THEY WERE DOING

AS DOCTORS, MOSTLY IT WAS

TAKING CARE OF DISEASE.

THEY WOULD DO EXAMINATIONS.

Reporter: DR. ALEXANDER

WAS A VETERAN OF THE

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR AND THE

FIRST COMMISSIONED BLACK

OFFICER IN THE U.S. ARMY.

HE IS ALSO THE FIRST BLACK

OFFICER TO BE BURIED HERE IN

ARLINGTON NATIONAL

CEMETERY.

BORN TO FREE PARENTS IN FOR

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, HE

LEARNED TO READ, EVEN THOUGH

IT WAS ILLEGAL AND

DANGEROUS.

HIS DREAM OF BECOMING A

DOCTOR IN THE 1800s SEEMED

ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.

AND THE UNIVERSITY OF

PENNSYLVANIA DENIED HIS

APPLICATION TO MEDICAL

SCHOOL.

AUGUSTA WOULD NOT GIVE UP

AND TRAVELLED TO CANADA,

ENROLLING IN TORONTO'S

TRINITY COLLEGE, WHERE IN

SIX YEARS HE RECEIVED A

DEGREE IN MEDICINE.

IT HAD TO BE MAGNITUDE

HARDER THAN THOSE OF US WHO

ARE BLACK DOCTORS NOW GO

THROUGH.

Reporter: DR DR.

ROSEIN SAYS THE HARDSHIPS

FACED BY THOSE BEFORE HER

SET A GREAT EXAMPLE FOR HER

AND OTHER BLACKS.

ON TOP OF IT BEING A VERY

DIFFICULT AND CHALLENGING

SUBJECT MATTER TO HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND, BUT TO DO THAT

IN AN ATMOSPHERE WHERE YOU

WERE CONSIDERED LESS THAN.

WHERE YOU WERE CONSIDERED TO

BE SECOND RATE OR SECOND

TIER, WHERE YOU DID NO HAVE

ALL OF THE RESOURCES YOU

NEED IN ORDER TO SUCCESS,

AND THEN TO BE ABLE TO

ACHIEVE ANYWAY?

Reporter: IN 1862,

AFTER RETURNING TO THE U.S.,

AUGUSTA WROTE A DIRECT

APPEAL TO PRESIDENT LINCOLN,

OFFERING HIS SERVICES IN THE

ARMY.

AFTER MANY ROADBLOCKS, HE

EARNED A COMMISSION IN THE

ARMY.

TIME IN THE ARMY WAS VERY

DIFFICULT.

MOST BLACK SERVICES IN THE

WAR WORKED IN MILITARY

HOSPITALS OR RECRUITING

STATIONS, BECAUSE MANY WHITE

SURGEONS REFUSED TO WORK BY

THEIR SIDE OR UNDER THEM ON

THE BATTLEFIELD.

HE HAD TWO PHYSICIANS

WITH HIM, AND THEY WERE

WHITE, AND THEY REBELED,

OBVIOUSLY.

THEY SAID THERE IS NO OTHER

WHITE MAN WORKING FOR A

BLACK MAN, AND I SHOULDN'T

HAVE TO DO IT, EITHER.

Reporter: DR. BEN SURLY

OF MASSACHUSETTS WAS

UNEXCEPTION.

HE AND OTHER DOCTORS WERE OF

MIXED RACE AND COULD EASILY

HAVE PASSED AS WHITE.

AFTER VOLUNTEERING IN

MAY 1963, HE RECEIVED A

COMMISSION WITH THE 35th

UNITED STATES COLORED

INFANTRY.

HE WAS THE ONLY BLACK

SURGEON TO SERVE IN THE

FIELD WITH HIS SOUTH

CAROLINA REGIMEN, AND ONE OF

ONLY EIGHT TO SERVE IN THE

UNION MEDICAL CORPS.

UNFORTUNATELY, LITTLE IS

WRITTEN IN THE HISTORY BOOKS

ABOUT THESE AFRICAN-AMERICAN

PHYSICIANS, AND THEIR

SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY.

THE POWERS THAT BE

DECIDED THAT THE ACCEPTABLE

PHYSICIANS WERE WHITE MEN,

SO A LOT OF THE INFORMATION

ON A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE,

THE AFRICAN-AMERICANS AS

WELL AS THE EARLY WOMEN

PHYSICIANS, IS JUST PEOPLE

CHOSE NOT TO RECORD IT.

Reporter: AFTER THE

WAR, DR. ALEXANDER AUGUSTA

WENT ON TO SERVE ON THE

STAFF AT HOWARD UNIVERSITY.

AS FOR DR. DEGRAT, HE WAS

PRESENTED WITH A CEREMONIAL

AWARD.

SLAWSEN IS DOING WHAT HE CAN

TO TELL THE STORIES OF THESE

PHYSICIANS, EACH OF WHOM

DESERVES A PLACE IN HISTORY

AS FORERUNNERS OF THE MODERN

WORLD.

I THOUGHT THESE PEOPLE

WERE HEROS.

THEY WANTED TO SERVE IN THE

BEST WAY THEY COULD.

AND THEY WERE TRAINED AS

PHYSICIANS, AND THAT WAS THE

BEST SERVICE THEY COULD

GIVE.

I DON'T SEE A DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS, COLUMBIA,

MARYLAND.

Pat: THAT'S A SIDE OF

HISTORY I HAVEN'T BEEN

FAMILIAR WITH.

I GUESS FEW OF US HAVE.

Terry: WE'VE DONE SOME

WONDERFUL STORIES HERE, AND

EACH YEAR, DURING BLACK

HISTORY MONTH ESPECIALLY, TO

FEATURE PEOPLE WHO REALLY,

REALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE IN

MANY WAYS IN THEIR

LIFETIME.

GREAT JOB, CHARLENE.

UP NEXT, SHE IS THE MOTHER

OF AN NBA SUPER STAR, AND

SHE IS ALSO A FORMER DRUG

ADDICT.

I HEARD THE PERSON SAY,

STOP!

AND I SAID, WHAT HAVE I JUST

PUT IN MY ARM.

CALL THE AMBULANCE NOW!

Terry: DWAYNE WADE'S

MOTHER TALKS ABOUT THE DAY

SHE ALMOST DIED.

THEN LATER ON, THE SOUND OF

NEW SONG WITH THEIR LATEST

HIT "SWALLOW THE OCEAN."

*

* I'M COMING AWAY WITH

YOU *

Pat: WELL, BASKETBALL

IS HOT, AND ONE OF THE

HOTTEST TEAMS IS THE MIAMI

HEAT.

AS A SHOOTING GUARD FOR THE

MIAMI HEAT, DWAYNE WADE IS

ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR

PLAYERS IN THE NBA.

BUT HIS BIGGEST FAN IS HIS

MOTHER, JOLINDA.

AND SHE REMEMBERS WATCHING

HER SON LEADING HIS

BASKETBALL TEAM TO THE FINAL

FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP IN 2009.

THAT WAS JUST AFTER JOLINDA

GOT RELEASED FROM PRISON.

REPORTER MICHELLE WILSON

TALKED WITH HER ABOUT HER

JOURNEY FROM THE PITS TO THE

PULPIT.

Reporter: TO SOME, THIS

IS JUST ANOTHER BOARDED UP

BUILDING ON CHICAGO'S SOUTH

SIDE.

BUT TO JOLINDA WADE, MOTHER

OF NBA SUPER STAR DWAYNE

WADE, THIS BUILDING WAS HOME

TO HER.

I WAS STANDING IN A

BUILDING WHERE THERE WAS

RATS THE SIZE OF CATS.

SOMETIMES YOU DIDN'T THINK

AND YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT YOU

HAVE TO DO.

Reporter: SHE GREW UP

IN A ROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD IN

CHICAGO.

SHE EXCELLED IN SCHOOL, BUT

DESPERATELY WANTED TO FIT IN

WITH HER PEERS.

SO SHE STARTED DRINKING IN

EIGHTH GRADE AND EVENTUALLY

STARTED SMOKING MARIJUANA.

I DIDN'T KNOW AT THAT

TIME THAT THIS THING WAS

GOING TO BECOME A CRUTCH.

Reporter: BY THE TIME

SHE WAS 18, SHE HAD GIVEN

BIRTH TO TWO CHILDREN.

THAT'S WHEN SHE MET WAYNE

WAYNE'S FATHER.

I BELIEVE GOD WAS TELLING

ME HE WAS A BLESSING BECAUSE

HE WAS MY ONLY SON.

Reporter: WHEN DWAYNE

WAS ONLY FOUR MONTHS OLD,

SHE AND HIS FATHER

SEPARATED.

THAT'S WHEN JOLINDA STARTED

DEALING DRUGS TO SUPPORT HER

DRUG HABIT.

NOW I'M MEETING UP WITH

THESE PEOPLE INTO THESE

DRUGS.

THE FIRST TIME I SAW

SOMEBODY WHO SHOT DOPE, IT

BLEW MY MIND.

Reporter: JOLINDA EVEN

INVITED PEOPLE INTO HER HOME

TO DO DRUGS WHILE HER KIDS

WERE THERE.

I COULD LOOK AT THEM AND

SAYING, I'M SORRY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET OUT

OF THIS THINGS HERE.

Reporter: DWAYNE

EVENTUALLY WENT TO LIVE WITH

HIS FATHER, BUT HE ALWAYS

LOVED VISITING HIS MOM.

WHEN THEY WERE TOGETHER,

THEY WEN SHE TOOK HIM TO

PLAY BASKETBALL WITH HIS

FRIENDS.

SO THIS IS THE SPOT WHERE

DWAYNE PLAYED BASKETBALL.

THAT'S THE VERY SPOT.

I WOULD BE SO PROUD LOOKING

AT MY BOY.

HE WOULD START PLAYING HIS

LITTLE BALL.

I WAS THE CHEERLEADER.

I WOULD BE ON THE SIDE,

YAY!

YAY!

Reporter: WAS HE GOOD?

HE WAS VERY GOOD.

I'M HIS MOTHER, I MIGHT BE A

LITTLE PREJUDICE, BUT I

THINK HE WAS.

Reporter: BUT AS SOON

AS HER SON LEFT, SHE FELL

INTO HER OLD DRUG HABITS.

COCAINE AND ANY OTHER DRUGS

SHE COULD FIND.

SHE REMEMBERS THE DAY SHE

SHOOTED UP AND NEARLY DIED.

I WAS PUTTING IT IN

THERE, I HEARD A PERSON

SAID, STOP!

I SAID WHAT HAVE I JUST PUT

IN MY ARM?

CALL THE AMBULANCE NOW!

THE EFFECT OF THE ATTACK

DIDN'T HAPPEN TO ME UNTIL I

WAS IN THE HOSPITAL.

AND I STARTED HALLUCINATING

WHEN I WAS THERE.

AND THERE WAS A LADY IN

THERE.

SHE WAS SUCH A GOOD LADY,

AND SHE STARTED TALKING TO

ME.

AND SHE SAID, BABY, WHY ARE

YOU DOING THIS TO YOURSELF?

AND IT WAS BY THE GRACE OF

GOD THAT I CAME OUT OF

THAT.

Reporter: JOLINDA'S

DRUG ADDICTION CONTINUED

UNTIL 1994, WHEN SHE WAS

ARRESTED FOR POSSESSION OF

CRACK COCAINE WITH THE

INTENT TO SELL.

SHE WILL NEVER FORGET THE

LOOK ON YOUNG DWAYNE WHEN HE

CAME TO VISIT HER IN JAIL.

I SEEN THE LOOK ON HIS

FACE, LIKE, WHY IS MY MAMA

BEHIND THERE?

HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

GOING ON.

I REMEMBER SAYING, MAMA

LOVES YOU.

I SAID, WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE

GIRL?

AND HE SAID, YOU ARE, MA.

BUT HE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.

HE DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHY I

WAS BEHIND THAT GLASS, AND I

WAS MAD.

I WAS SO ANGRY.

AND I WENT UPSTAIRS IN MY

ROOM.

AND I FELL ON MY KNEES AND I

ASKED GOD, PLEASE TAKE CARE

OF HIM.

AND I ASKED GOD TO FORGIVE

ME FOR ALLOWING -- I'M CLEAN

NOW, I'M IN MY RIGHT MIND.

SO FORGIVE ME, FATHER GOD,

FOR BRINGING IT TO THIS

BOY.

Reporter: FOUR YEARS

LATER, ON A WORK PROGRAM,

SHE DECIDED TO RUN.

ONE DAY HER DAUGHTER, DEANNA

FOUND HER HERE.

TELL ME THE SIGHTS AND THE

SMELL THAT YOU EXPERIENCED

AS YOU WALKED IN THIS

ABANDONED BUILDING.

OH, MY GOSH.

JUST ABANDONMENT.

IT WAS A HORRIBLE SMELL.

IT WAS FREEZING COLD IN

THERE.

ICICLES EVERYWHERE.

THE SMELL OF POOP AND

FECES -- YOU KNOW, IT WAS AN

ABANDONED BUILDING.

NOTHING WORKING IN THERE.

BUT THEY WERE FINDING A WAY

TO LIVE.

Reporter: SO AS YOU'RE

WALKING INTO THIS BUILDING,

WERE YOU ANGRY?

WERE YOU UPSET?

NO.

I WAS MORE OR LESS IN PAIN,

HURTING FOR MY MOTHER.

BEING A CHILD, YOU GO

THROUGH SO MUCH THINKING

ABOUT WHERE YOUR MOTHER IS.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THAT RESCUE, JOLINDA SAYS

SOMETHING PROMPTED HER TO GO

TO CHURCH.

OVER THE NEXT TWO MONTHS, A

MIRACLE HAPPENED.

I GOT WANDERE WEANED OFF

OF HEROIN AND ALCOHOL IN

THREE DAYS.

IT WAS OVER IN THE MONTH OF

OCTOBER.

HE TOOK CIGARETTES AWAY FROM

ME IN THE MONTH OF

NOVEMBER.

IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, HE

CAME AND SPOKE TO ME AND

SAID YOU'RE GOING TO CHECK

YOURSELF IN.

Reporter: JOLINDA

RETURNED TO PRISON TO FINISH

HER SENTENCE.

AND SHE RECEIVED AN

ENCOURAGING LETTER FROM

DWAYNE.

HE SAID, I'M YOUR HERO?

YOU ARE MY HERO.

I SAID, COME ON WITH IT, I'M

GOING TO DO THIS HERE.

BECAUSE WHEN I LEAVE HERE,

IT'S GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

I'M GOING TO GET MY FAMILY

BACK.

Reporter: SHE BECAME A

CHRISTIAN IN JAIL AND BEGAN

TO READ AND STUDY THE

BIBLE.

HE HAD ME CONFRONT ALL OF

THE THINGS I DID.

I CRIED LIKE A BABY.

I KEPT TELLING HIM, I'M

SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

FORGIVE ME, LORD, I'M

SORRY.

THE CLEANSING KEPT GOING AND

GOING AND GOING, UNTIL THE

HEALING TOOK EFFECT.

AND I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR

ONE DAY, AND I FORGAVE ME.

AND HOW I KNEW IS WHEN HE

SENT ME OUT AND I WAS ABLE

TO LOOK AT MY CHILDREN.

AND I DIDN'T FEEL THAT HEAVY

WEIGHT NO MORE.

I REALLY ACTUALLY FELT LIAR

LOVTHEIR LOVE BECAUSE

UNFORGIVENESS STOPPED THE

LOVE.

Reporter: SHE WAS

RELEASED IN 2009, AND SHE

BECAUSE RELEASED FROM JAIL.

AND ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS

SHE DID WAS WATCH DWAYNE WIN

THE FINAL FOUR.

I'M HERE AND I'M, LIKE,

THIS IS MY SON.

THIS IS THE ONE THE LORD

CALLED BLESSING.

I WAS SO PROUD OF HIM THAT

DAY.

Reporter: AND GOD WAS

DOING SOMETHING IN JOLINDA,

TOO.

PREPARING HER TO PASTOR HER

OWN CHURCH IN THE SOUTH SIDE

OF CHICAGO, WHERE SHE GREW

UP.

YOU BETTER GET ON DOWN

HERE NOW AND ASK GOD TO

CHANGE YOU.

Reporter: SHE HAS BEEN

DRUG AND ALCOHOL-FREE FOR

THE PAST 10 YEARS.

AND SHE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK

OF PRAYERS SHE WROTE TO GOD

WHILE SHE WAS IN JAIL.

HER SON WAS SO AMAZED BY THE

CHANGES

IN HIS

MOM, HE

BOUGHT HER A $2 MILLION

CHURCH BUILDING.

WHEN PEOPLE SAY

RAGS-TO-RICHES -- NOT MONEY

RAGS-TO-RICHES, BUT SHE HAS

BEEN RAGS-TO-RICHES IN

LIFE.

PEOPLE THINK WHAT I'VE DONE

IN LIFE HAS BEEN

MIRACULOUS?

NO, NO.

THIS IS MIRACULOUS.

Reporter: JOLINDA HAS

RECONCILED WITH HER

CHILDREN, AND SHE MAKES SURE

SHE IS IN THE STANDS TO

CHEER DWAYNE ON IN EVERY ONE

OF HIS NBA GAMES.

YOU CAN BELIEVE THE BIBLE

IS TRUE.

HE HAS RESTORED MY

RELATIONSHIP AS A FAMILY.

I HAVE SEVEN GRANDCHIDS NOW,

AND ONE ON THE WAY.

OH, MY GOD, IT IS MAD WHAT'S

GOING ON IN MY LIFE.

THERE IS A LIGHT THAT

SHINES.

AND IF YOU FOLLOW THAT

LIGHT, IT WILL TAKE YOU

THROUGH.

YOU'VE GOT TO STAND UP, AND

YOU'VE GOT TO RISE, AND

YOU'VE GOT TO BELIEVE BY

FAITH THAT HE CAN BRING YOU

THROUGH, JUST LIKE HE DID

ME.

Pat: HOW FAR DOWN CAN

YOU GO?

AND FALL AWAY FROM GOD?

THE ANSWER IS THERE IS NO

PLACE.

THERE IS NO DEPTH THAT YOU

CAN CAN FALL TO WHERE GOD

ISN'T THERE.

AND JOLINDA FOUND IT.

SHE FOUND AN ANSWER.

YOU KNOW SOMETHING?

GOD HAS AN ANSWER TO YOU.

THIS DAY CAN BE THE DAY THAT

YOU FIND HOPE.

YOU SEE, GOD COULDN'T LOVE

ME, I'M STRUNG OUT ON

DRUGS.

GOD COULDN'T LOVE ME, I'VE

BEEN UNFAITHFUL TO MY

SPOUSE.

GOD COULDN'T LOVE ME, I'VE

STOLEN FROM MY EMPLOYER.

GOD COULDN'T LOVE ME -- THE

ANSWER IS HE LOVES YOU!

AND HE WANTS TO REDEEM YOU.

HE WON'T NECESSARILY LIFTER

LIFT FROM YOU THE PENALTY OF

SOME OF YOUR ACTIONS.

JOLINDA SERVED HER JAIL

TIMES.

HE DIDN'T MIRACULOUSLY LIFT

HER OUT OF JAIL, BUT GOD

TOOK AWAY FROM HER THE CURSE

THAT DESCENDED ON HER.

DO YOU WANT TO BE FREE?

JESUS CHRIST DIED SO YOU CAN

BE FREE.

SO THE CHAINS CAN CAN FALL

OFF OF YOU.

DO YOU WANT THAT BLESSING?

DO YOU WANT TO BE FREE?

DO YOU WANT TO HAVE HOPE AND

JOY IN YOUR LIFE?

IF YOU DO, I WANT YOU TO

PRAY WITH ME.

PRAY RIGHT NOW.

DON'T BE ASHAMED.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY.

SAY THESE WORDS.

DO IT.

DO IT RIGHT NOW.

BOW YOUR HEAD.

THESE WORDS: JESUS -- THAT'S

RIGHT, SAY IT.

JESUS, YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEEN

IN MY HEART.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE DONE.

YOU KNOW EVERYTHING THAT IS

GOING ON IN ALL OF MY LIFE.

AND I BRING IT ALL TO YOU.

AND I CONFESS TO YOU THAT I

AM A SINNER.

BUT, LORD, YOU KNEW IT

ANYHOW.

AND I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE

ME.

I ASK YOU TO CLEANSE ME.

I ASK YOU TO FILL ME WITH

YOUR HOLY SPIRIT.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I

WILL SERVE YOU AND I WILL

LIVE FOR YOU.

I THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE

HEARD MY PRAYER.

I THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE

FORGIVEN ME AND GIVEN ME A

NEW LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED WITH ME

JUST THEN, I WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU.

FATHER, MAY THE ANOINTING OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT TOUCH THEM

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

TOUCH THEM.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT YOU TO MOVE FORWARD.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE

STATIC.

YOU'RE GOING TO MOVE

FORWARD.

THERE IS A NEW LIFE IN GOD

THAT IS WONDERFUL.

AND HERE IS SOMETHING THAT

WILL HELP YOU.

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT'S A C.D., A COMPACT DISK,

AND A LITTLE BOOKLET.

AND IT TALKS ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

YOU'VE BEEN BORN AGAIN.

YOU'RE A NEW CREATURE IN

CHRIST.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU.

JUST CALL IN.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY FREE.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

YOU CAN PICK UP THE PHONE

AND CALL IN.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

BUT YOU NEED TO CALL IN.

SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT AND

TODAY IS THE DAY THAT I'VE

BEEN SET FREE.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

1-800-759-0700.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU AND IS WAITING TO HEAR

THE GOOD NEWS.

OCEAN."

WHEN YOU BUY ONE,

A

SECOND ONE TO GIVE AWAY.

IT'S GREAT TO HAVE YOU

* I'M COMING ALIVE WITH

YOU *

Terry: WELL, YOU KNOW

WE LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU,

AND SO WE WANT TO TAKE SOME

TIME TO ANSWER E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

Pat: NEW SONG, I'M

JIVING AWAY.

THEY ARE GOOD, AREN'T THEY?

THE NUMBER ONE CHRISTIAN

GROUP.

Terry: YES, AND THEY'VE

GOT THIS WONDERFUL WINTER

JAM TOUR THEY DO, AND PEOPLE

ARE REALLY MOVED BY THEIR

MUSIC.

SO IT IS A BLESSING.

Pat: IT IS GREAT.

OKAY.

QUESTIONS.

Terry: THIS IS MIGUEL

WHO SAYS, "I'VE BEEN TRYING

TO STOP WATCHING

PORNOGRAPHY, BUT IT SEEMS

THE MORE I TRY NOT TO WATCH,

THE MORE I WATCH.

WHAT CAN I DO?

EVERYTHING SEEMS LIKE IT

TRIGGERS ME."

Pat: MIGUEL, THE WORD

ABOUT STOPPING A HABIT IS,

ONCE AGAIN, 21 DAYS.

WHATEVER IT IS YOU DO, DON'T

STOP DOING IT -- YOU DON'T

LOOK AT IT FOR 21 DAYS.

THE MORE YOU FOCUS ON THE

EVIL, THE EVIL WILL CAPTURE

YOU.

YOU WANT TO FOCUS ON THE

GOOD.

YOU WANT A REVE REVELATION

OF JESUS.

YOU WANT TO READ THE BIBLE

AND THINK ABOUT JESUS.

AND THEN YOU WANT TO GO OUT

TO WHERE THE POOR ARE, THE

NEEDY AND SUFFERING, AND

HELP THEM.

GO OUT TO SOME HOMELESS

SHELTER, TO A PLACE WHERE

THERE ARE PEOPLE SUFFERING.

IF YOU SIT HOME AND YOU'VE

GOT A TV THERE AND YOU'VE

GOT AN INTERNET CONNECTION

THERE, YOU'RE GOING TO GET

TO THAT PORN WHETHER YOU

LIKE IT OR NOT.

BUT IF YOU'RE FOCUSED ON THE

SUFFERING OF OTHERS, ON THE

PLIGHT OF OTHERS, AND THEN

YOU'RE FOCUSING ON JESUS --

YOU'VE GOT TO TURN YOUR MIND

AWAY FROM RESISTING THE EVIL

TO WELCOMING THE GOOD.

OTHERWISE THE EVIL IS GOING

TO CONSTANTLY CAPTURE YOU.

Terry: THAT'S WHY T.L.

ASPIRIN WAS TALKING ABOUT

EARLIER, IT WAS DWEE

PRESSION.

I WAS -- DEPRESSION.

Pat: YOU HAVE TO FOCUS

AND CONTROL YOUR MIND,

CAPTURE YOUR THOUGHTS.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "LATELY I'VE BEEN

CONFUSED ABOUT HOW GOD VIEWS

WEALTH.

I READ IN THE BIBLE WHERE

GOD WANTS US TO ENJOY

WEALTH, AND HE EVEN SAYS

THERE ARE MANY MANSIONS IN

HEAVEN.

BUT I HAVE READ IN MATTHEW

HOW GOD WANTS US TO GIVE UP

EVERYTHING AND FOLLOW HIM.

CAN WE HAVE EARTHLY RICHES

AS LONG AS WE AREN'T

IDOLIZING THEM AND STILL BE

LEGITIMATE DISCIPLES OF

CHRIST?"

Pat: YOU CERTAINLY

CAN.

IT IS THE LOVE OF MONEY THAT

IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

NOT MONEY.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

HAVING WEALTH.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF YOU DO

CERTAIN THINGS YOU WILL HAVE

WEALTH.

YOU KNOW, THE REWARD OF

HUMILITY IS THE FEAR OF THE

WARD AND RICHES AND HONOR IN

LIFE.

IT IS PART OF THE HUMILITY

BEFORE THE LORD.

BUT IT INVOLVES SACRIFICE,

HARD WORK, INTELLIGENT

INVESTING, AND SO FORTH.

BUT IF YOU'LL LIVE A LIFE

ALONG THE WAY, GOD WILL

REWARD YOU.

BUT -- YOU KNOW, I BELIEVE

STEVE JOBS, FOR EXAMPLE, HE

DIDN'T SET OUT TO SAY, HOW

CAN I BECOME A BILLIONAIRE.

HE SET OUT SAYING, HOW CAN I

MAKE A DEVICE THAT WILL

ENABLE PEOPLE TO ENJOY THE

COMPUTER.

I'M SURE HENRY FORD DIDN'T

START OUT TO BE A

BILLIONAIRE.

HE WANTED TO INVENT A CAR

THAT WILL HELP PEOPLE.

IF YOU SAVE YOUR MONEY, THE

WEALTH WILL COME.

BUT WEALTH, PER SE -- BY THE

WAY, THAT IS A

MISTRANSLATIONS.

IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE THERE

ARE MANY DWELLING PLACES,

NOT NECESSARILY MANSIONS.

Terry: THIS IS BREA WHO

SAYS, "I'M CURRENTLY A LOCAL

TELEVISION NEWS REPORTER,

BUT OVER OF THE PAST YEAR I

FELT COMPELLED TO DO

SOMETHING IN MY LIFE THAT

WILL HAVE AN ETERNAL IMPACT

IN OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES.

I'VE FELT GOD CALL ME TO

MISSIONARY WORK.

HOW CAN I GO ABOUT MAKING

THE TRANSITION FROM BEING A

NEWS REPORTER TO BEING IN

FULL-TIME MINISTRY?"

Pat: WHAT ARE YOU GOOD

AT?

DO WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT.

GOD HAS GIFTED YOU IN A

PARTICULAR WAY.

USE THOSE GIFTS AND

TALENTS.

THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE GOD

IN TELEVISION NOOS NEWS IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT HERE IN

AMERICA, THERE IS

OPPORTUNITY -- FOR EXAMPLE,

WE HAVE A DEPARTMENT THAT IS

RELATING WHAT WE'RE DOING

BUT LIKE PETER DART AND

CHRISTINE DART AND THEIR

SON, THEY'RE FABULOUS NEWS

PEOPLE.

BUT THEY KNOW HOW TO

COMMUNICATE THE THINGS OF

GOD.

SO USE THE GIFTS THAT GOD

HAS GIVEN YOU, AND THEN HOW

DO YOU DO IT?

FIND OUT THOSE MINISTRIES

THAT COULD USE SOMETHING

THAT YOU'RE DOING.

BUT DON'T JUST TRY TO HAVE

SOME RADICAL SHIFT, LIKE,

OKAY, I'M NOW ON TELEVISION

NEWS, AND NOW I'M GOING TO

WEAR A SHIRT AND GO PREACH.

GOD HAS GIVEN YOU GIFTS.

USE THOSE GIFTS IN HIS

SERVICE, AND LOOK FOR

OPPORTUNITIES TO USE WHAT

YOU ARE GOOD AT.

Terry: TINA SAYS, "I

UNDERSTAND TIME IS NOT A

FACTOR WHEN YOU GIVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE FOR VIEWERS.

THAT A PERSON CAN RECEIVE

HEALING EVEN DURING A

RECORDED SHOW.

IS IT SAFE TO SAY THAT THE

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE GIVEN CAN

BE MEANT FOR MORE THAN ONE

VIEWER?"

Pat: WITHOUT QUESTION.

LOOK AT THE BIBLE.

THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN AT ONE

POINT IN TIME.

THE LETTER TO THE

PHILLIPIANS WAS WRITTEN IN

FILIPI.

THEY WERE GIVEN INSTRUCTION

ON HOW TO BEHAVE, BUT THOSE

PRINCIPLES ARE SO TIMELESS,

THEY HAVE BEEN

ININCORPORATED INTO A BOOK.

IT HAS BLESSED HUNDREDS AND

HUNDREDS AND MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE.

SO THE WORD OF GOD IS

TIMELESS.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

JEFFREY WHO SAYS, "THE BIBLE

SAYS WE'RE TO WORSHIP ONLY

THE ONE, TRUE GOD.

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE ALSO PRAY

TO JESUS?"

Pat: REMEMBER WHAT

JESUS SAID TO A GUY NAMED

DOUBTING THOMAS?

HE SAID, IF YOU'VE SEEN ME,

YOU'VE SEEN THE FATHER.

JESUS IS GOD.

THAT'S THE WHOLE THING ABOUT

THE TRINITY.

IT IS A MYSTERY, WHICH I

DON'T HAVE TIME TO GO INTO

NOW.

WE ARE NOT WORSHIPPING THREE

GODS.

THERE IS ONE GOD, FATHER,

SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT.

TOMORROW, R.C. SPROLE SHARES

THE ECONOMICS FOR EVERYBODY,

AND TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM

PHILLIPIANS: "FOR IT IS GOD

WHO WORKS IN YOU TO WILL AND

TO ACT IN ORDER TO FULFILL

HIS GOOD PURPOSE."

AND REMEMBER, TELEPHONES ARE

AVAILABLE.

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

AND WE'LL LOOK FORWARD TO

SEEING YOU TOMORROW ON "THE

700 CLUB."

BYE-BYE.
