The 700 Club - February 21, 2013

Scott Ross brings us stories of faith and endurance from Israel where the threat of war is always imminent. Plus, Julie's childhood of sexual abuse paved the way for failed relationships and an abusive husband Read Transcript


I LOST ALL OF MY STUFF

AND ENDED UP ON THE STREET.

Lee: WITH TWO KIDS IN

TOW.

DRINKING, DOING WHATEVER,

I JUST DIDN'T CARE.

Lee: AND THE STRANGER

THAT RESCUED HER.

*

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

ISN'T IT AMAZING, IF IT

SNOWS HARD IT'S GLOBAL

WARMING.

IF IT'S WARM, IT'S GLOBAL

WARMING.

IF IT IS FREEZING COLD, IT'S

GLOBAL WARMING.

IF THERE ARE HURRICANES, IT

IS GLOBAL WARMING.

IF THERE ARE NO HURRICANES,

IT IS GLOBAL WARMING.

I WAS INTRODUCED TO THIS

CONCEPT TODAY BY OUR

PRODUCER.

AND WE UNDERSTAND THIS MUST

BE AN EFFECTIVE GLOBAL

WARMING BECAUSE THERE IS A

HUGE WINTER STORM GETTING

THE COUNTRY.

IT EVEN KNOCKED A GOLF

TOURNAMENT OUT IN ARIZONA,

WHICH IS UNPRECEDENTED.

AND THIS PARTICULAR STORM IS

STIRRING AROUND IN THE

HEARTLAND OF AMERICA,

KANSAS, NEBRASKA, AND PLACES

LIKE THAT.

20 STATES ARE UNDER A WINTER

STORM WATCH OR WARNING.

Terry: THE SYSTEM IS

BRINGING MORE SNOW, MORE

ICE, EVEN TORNADOES IN SOME

PLACES.

AND AS PAT JUST SAID, SOME

SCIENTISTS SAY GLOBAL

WARMING IS BEHIND THESE

WINTER STORMS.

HERE IS EPHRAIM GRAHAM.

Reporter: RESIDENTS OF

THE CENTRAL U.S. ARE

STOCKING UP ON LAST-MINUTE

SUPPLIES TODAY, BRACING FOR

UP TO A FOOT OF SNOW.

EVERYBODY IS GETTING

READY FOR THE STORM AND THE

LINES ARE PRETTY LONG.

Reporter: THE MASSIVE

SNOWSTORM STARTED IN

CALIFORNIA.

A MIX OF RAIN, SNOW, AND

WIND, MAKING DRIVING

CONDITIONS DANGEROUS.

I WAS TRYING TO GO DOWN

THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE,

AND I STARTED TO GO SIDEWAYS

DOWN THE HILL.

AFTER WE GOT HIT HERE, WE

HIT A CAR THAT AT LEAST

SEVEN, EIGHT CARS HIT US.

Reporter: OFFICIALS IN

THE MIDWEST FEAR THIS COULD

BE THE WORST STORM IN TWO

YEARS.

FURTHER TO THE SOUTH, SEVERE

WEATHER IS ALSO POSSIBLE.

FACTORYS PREDICT TORNADOES

ACROSS TEXAS, LOUISIANA, AND

MISSISSIPPI.

IT IS THE SECOND MAJOR STORM

TO HIT THIS WINTER.

BUT GLOBAL WARMING ADVOCATES

SAY THE HUGE AMOUNTS OF SNOW

ACTUALLY MEAN THE EARTH IS

HEATING UP.

WHEN IT DOES SNOW, WATCH

OUT.

EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE,

THERE IS GOING TO BE A BIG

STORM, A KIND OF KNOCKOUT

PUNCH.

Reporter:

CLIMATOLOGISTS CLAIM THIS IS

BECAUSE A WARMER ATMOSPHERE

CAN HOLD THE MOISTURE.

THEY PREDICT MOST OF THAT

WILL COME DOWN AS RAIN.

BUT WHEN IT GETS COLD

ENOUGH, IT WILL TURN INTO

MONSTER SNOWSTORMS.

GET OUT YOUR SNOW

SHOVELS.

SNOWSTORMS WITH TWO OR THREE

FEET, THAT WERE HIGHLY

UNUSUAL, THAT MAY, IN FACT,

BECOME MORE TYPICAL.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: ONLY IN PRINCETON

WOULD PEOPLE SAY NUTTY

THINGS LIKE THAT.

YOU GET TO BE Ph.D.s,

AND YOU WONDER WHERE THEY

STUDY TO LEARN ALL THESE

THINGS.

I'LL TELL YOU, IF YOU'RE A

TRUE BELIEVER, YOU'RE A TRUE

BELIEVER THAT BAD THINGS

WILL HAPPEN BECAUSE YOU SEE

THEM COMING.

I'M TELL YOU SOMETHING THAT

IS MUCH MORE SERIOUS THAN

GLOBAL WARMING.

THEY FOUND A SUN SPOT SIX

TIMES THE SIZE OF EARTH, AND

THERE IS A SOLAR FLARE THAT

COULD BE ON THE WAY AS WE

SPEAK, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

MAJOR DAMAGE TO THE

COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS, AND

THE CONTROL MECHANISMS TO

OUR POWER GRID, ETC.

WE'RE NOT SURE HOW EXTENSIVE

IT MAY BE.o.3z[çmññFÑi)jbxVx

t8Kozfcz&7R)iSQSj ARE

FROM PEOPLE

HERE ON THE

EARTH WHO ARE IN THE RANGE

OF THIS SOLAR STORM.

AND GEORGE THOMAS HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

HERE IS GEORGE.

George: PAT, SOME CRAZY

STUFF.

SCIENTISTS ARE MONITORING A

SPOT ON THE EARTH'S SUN, AS

YOU MENTIONED.

LARGE ENOUGH TO SWALLOW SIX

EARTH'S.

NASACAMERAS CAPTURED THE

SUN SPOT AS IT GREW TO

MASSIVE PROPORTIONS OVER THE

LAST TWO DAYS.

SOME SUN SPOTS FORM AS

MAGNETIC SHIELDS SHIFT ON

THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH.

THEY HAVE THE POTENTIAL OF

THROWING OFF BURSTS OF

RADIATION IN THE FORM OF

SOLAR FLARES.

THE SUN IS EXPECTED TO REACH

THE PEAK OF ITS SOLAR

WEATHER CYCLE, AND SOLAR

FLARES COULD DISRUPT

SPACECRAFTS, SATELLITES,

G.P.S., AIRPLANE GRIDS, AND

POWER GRIDS WHEN THEY

COLLIDE WITH THE EARTH'S

GRAVITY SHIELD.

THE IMPACT COULD BE

CATASTROPHIC.

WITHOUT THE ELECTRIC

GRID, WELL, OF COURSE, THERE

IS NO POWER.

THERE IS ALSO NO WATER.

THERE IS ALSO NO

COMMUNICATIONS, NO

TRANSPORTATION, NO MEDICAL

CARE.

THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM WOULD

BE DOWN.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS

WOULD BE CATASTROPHIC AT A

LEVEL WEHAVE NEVER SEEN

BEFORE.

George: WELL,

SCIENTISTS MONITORING THE

SUN SPOTHAS THE

POTENTIAL TOTHROW OFF

FLARES LARGE ENOUGH TO CAUSE

A SOLAR STORM.

PAT?

Pat: WELL, THIS IS THE

REAL THING, FOLKS.

THIS IS THE REAL GOODS.

IT'S JUST A QUESTION WHEN

SOMETHING LIKE THIS HITS, IT

IS GOING TO HIT -- THESE

SOLAR FLARES ARE COMING OUT

ALL OF THE TIME.

BUT THIS IS THE MAXIMUM

INTENSE PERIOD FOR IT.

I DON'T LIKE TO BE AN

ALARMIST, BUT THIS COULD BE

IT.

THIS WHOLE GLOBAL WARMING

THING, IT IS HOTTER ON MARS,

AND THEY DON'T HAVE

S.U.V.s ON MARS.

WHY IS IT HOTTER ON MARS?

WHY?

BECAUSE THE SUN IS SENDING

OUT MORE RADIATION, AND

THEREFORE THE SOLAR SYSTEM

IS HEATING UP, AND WE'RE

PART OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM.

WE REVOLVE AROUND THE SUN.

IF THESE SOLAR FLARES -- IF

THE RADIATION THAT COMES OUT

OF THEM -- THIS IS SERIOUS

BUSINESS.

GEORGE, WHAT'SNEXT?

George: PAT, THEOBAMA

ADMINISTRATION ISTHINKING

ABOUTASKING THE SUPREME

COURTTO OVERTURN

CALIFORNIA'S BANON GAY

MARRIAGE.

PROPOSITION 8 IS THE VOTER

APPROVED MEASUREBATTLING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN THAT

STATE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA RAISED

EXPECTATIONS FOR GAY

MARRIAGE SUPPORTERS IN HIS

INAUGURAL ADDRESS LAST

MONTH.

HE STATEDTHAT GAYS AND

LESBIANS MUST BE TREATED

LIKE ANYONE ELSE UNDER THE

LAW.

THE ADMINISTRATIONONE

WEEK TO FILE A FRIEND OF THE

COURT BRIEF.

OVERSEAS TENSION ISRISING

BETWEENEGYPT'S POWERFUL

MILITARY, AND ITLAMB'S

GOVERNMENT AND ITS

PRESIDENT.

THE MILITARY HAS DROPPED

HINTS IT MIGHT SEIZE POWER

AGAIN.

THE MILITARY HAS MADE IT

CLEAR IT WILL STEP IN IF

EGYPT IS HEADING TOWARDS

ANOTHER POLITICAL CRISIS,

AND SEVERAL TIMES HAS OPENLY

DEFIED ORDERS FROM THE

COUNTRY'S PRESIDENT.

IT COMES AFTER RUMORS THAT

PRESIDENT MORSI HAD PLANS TO

REPLACE HIS DEFENSE MINISTER

BECAUSE HE WAS BRINGING THE

POWER UNDER THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

THE BROTHERHOOD DENIES THOSE

CLAIMS, AND MORSI'S OFFICE

REISSUED ASTATEMENT,

REASSURINGTHE MILITARY

COMMANDERS OF HIS APPROVAL.

Pat: GEORGE, I REALLY

HOPE THE MILITARY -- IN SO

MANY OF THESE COUNTRIES THE

MILITARY HAS BEEN A FORCE OF

STABILITY AND ACTUALLY

DEMOCRACY.

YOU WOULD THINK THE MILITARY

WOULD BE PRO-DICTATOR, BUT

IN A SENSE, THEY'RE NOT

NECESSARILY.

I THINK THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IS A GREAT

DANGER.

SO I CHEER ON THE MILITARY

IN EGYPT.

WELL, WE'VE GOT A STORY NOW

AS WE SWITCH TO ISRAEL.

George: THAT'SRIGHT.

FLORIDA'S CONSERVATIVE

REPUBLICAN MARCO RUBIO SAYS

JERUSALEM IS THE CAPITAL OF

ISRAEL.

THE FATE OIS ONE OF

THE MOSTDIVISIVE ISSUES IN

THECONFLICT BETWEEN ISRAEL

AND THEPALESTINIANS.

THEOBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

REFUSED TO ACKNOWLEDGE

JERUSALEM AS ISRAEL'S

CAPITAL.

BUT IN HIS FIRST VISIT TO

ISRAEL, HE STATED THAT HE

BELIEVES JERUSALEM BELONGS

TO ISRAEL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO BE HERE

IN THIS CITY, WHICH IS, OF

COURSE, THE CAPITAL OF YOUR

COUNTRY, BUT THE SPIRITUAL

CAPITAL OF MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

George: RUBIO

REITERATED AMERICA'S

BIPARTISAN SUPPORT FOR

ISRAEL.

AFTER FOUR YEARS IN OFFICE,

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL MAKE

HISFIRST VISIT TO ISRAEL

NEXT MONTH.

IT COMES AT AN IMPORTANT

TIME IN THE RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN OUR TWO COUNTRIES.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY FROM JERUSALEM.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S VISIT WILL BE A

BUSY ONE, GIVEN THE NUMBER

OF THREATS AND CONCERNS

FACING ISRAEL.

THE THREE THINGS THAT

BOTH THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE

PRIME MINISTER'S OFFICE ARE

STRESSING BEFORE THE VISIT

IS, NUMBER ONE, IRAN, NUMBER

TWO, SYRIA, AND NUMBER

THREE, Tá@

ZL(/m0%.zbñJkySñ>gKiÑPALESTINIANS.

AND ANOTHER ew0i-3íoÑ/Kkw'RsóçHA'i IS EGYPT.

WHICH IS A HUGE TOPIC RIGHT

NOW.

THEY'LL TALK ABOUT JORDAN

AND OTHER REGIONS OF

DEVELOPMENT.

Reporter: DURING HIS

FIRST TERM, HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH BENJAMIN NETANYAHU HIT

A ROCKY ROAD.

I THINK IN THE VERY

BEGINNING, WHEN OBAMA CAME

OUT AND CALLED FOR BLANKET

SETTLE FREEZE EVERYWHERE,

INCLUDING IN JERUSALEM,

WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, NOT

MAKING SIMILAR DEMANDS ON

THE PALESTINIANS, I THINK

THAT WAS SEEN BY MANY

ISRAELIS AS AN UNREASONABLE

MAN.

I HOPE HE IS COMING TO

WARM UP THE RELATIONSHIP

THAT BY ANYBODY'S ESTIMATION

HAS BEEN A BIT CHILLY,

UNNECESSARILY.

Reporter: FORMER

GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE TOLD

CBN NEWS HE HOPES OBAMA DOES

MORE THAN JUST MAKE UP WITH

AMERICA'S LONG TIME ALLIE.

WHAT WE NEED IS A

RELATIONSHIP THAT IS

RED-HOT.

IT NEEDS TO BE INSEPARABLE.

WE NEED TO SAY TO THE REST

OF THE WORLD, PEOPLE WHO

BELIEVE IN FREEDOM AND

INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, WE STICK

TOGETHER BECAUSE WE HAVE SO

MUCH IN COMMON.

Reporter: NUMBER ONE ON

THAT LIST IS THE COMMON

THREAT OF A NUCLEAR IRAN.

HUCKABEE HOPES OBAMA MAKES

THAT A PRIORITY, INSTEAD OF

PRESSURING ISRAEL WITH THE

PALESTINIANS.

I WOULD HOPE HE IS NOT

COMING HERE TO ASK THEM TO

DO SOMETHING THEY HAVE BEEN

WILLING TO DO.

ISRAELIS HAVE BEEN MORE THAN

WILLING TO COME TO THE PEACE

TABLE TALKS, BUT THEY CAN'T

COME IF THE PALESTINIANS

REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT THE

ISRAELIS EVEN HAVE A RIGHT

TO EXIST.

Reporter: HE SAYS

ISRAELIS HAVE BEEN WEARY OF

OBAMA, BUT EXPECTS THEM TO

GIVE HIM A SECOND CHANCE.

THE ISRAELI PUBLIC IS NOT

STUPID.

THE ISRAELI PUBLIC REALIZES

THEY HAVE NO BETTER FRIEND

THAT AMERICA.

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA IS THE

LEADER OF THE UNITED STATES,

SO YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE IT

WORK.

Reporter: OBAMA WILL

ONLY HAVE THREE DAYS TO MAKE

IT WORK BEFORE HE TAKES OFF

FOUR JORDAN.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

George: PAT, DO YOU

TAKE ANY COMFORT KNOWING

THAT OUR INTELLIGENCE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ISRAEL

AND THE UNITED STATES IS

VERY STRONG?

Pat: THAT IS VERY

ENCOURAGING.

NOT ONLY THE INTELLIGENCE,

BUT THE MILITARY, THEY WORK

HAND IN GLOVE, AND THEY'RE

VERY CLOSE ON A NUMBER OF

ISSUES.

I WOULD THINK, AND IT'S A

HORRIBLE THOUGHT, BUT KEEP

YOUR EYES OPEN, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THAT OBAMA IS

GOING TO GO AND MAKE SOME

KIND OF A GRANDSTANDING

SPEECH.

HE MAY GO DOWN TO THE WEST

BANK AND CRY OUT FOR THE

LIBERTY FOR THE OPPRESSED

PALESTINIANS.

YOU MARK MY WORD.

I DON'T THINK IT WILL BE ALL

SWEETNESS AND LIGHT.

AND BEHIND THE SCENES, HE IS

GOING TO TELL NETANYAHU TO

COOL IT AND NOT DO ANYTHING

AGAINST THE PALESTINIANS,

WHICH WOULD BE DEVASTATING.

MAYBE NOT, BUT KEEP YOUR

EYES OPEN.

George: PAT, THE HEAD

OF A U.S. TIRE COMPANY SAYS

HE WON'T TAKE OVER A PLANT

IN FRANCE BECAUSE OF ITS

CRAZY UNIONS.

HE IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF

TITAN INTERNATIONAL.

FRANCE APPROACHED HIM SOME

TIME AGO ABOUT TAKING OVER A

PLANT THAT GOOD YEAR IS

CLOSING.

HE REJECTED THE IDEA IN NO

UNCERTAIN TERMS.

HE GAVE HIS RESPONSE IN A

LETTER TO FRANCE'S INDUSTRY

MINISTER.

THE LETTER WAS PUBLISHED IN

A FRENCH BUSINESS DAILY.

"HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK WE

ARE,ARE," TAYLOR ASKED.

THE FRENCH WAGE FORCE GETS

HIGH WAGES, AND ONLY WORKS

FOR THREE HOURS.

THEY GET ONE HOUR FOR LUNCH,

AND THEY WORK FOR THREE.

THEY TOLD ME, WELL, THAT'S

THE FRENCH WAY.

THE FRANCE 24 NEWS SERVICE

REPORTS THAT TAYLOR SAID THE

FRENCH MANUFACTURING SERVICE

IS DOOMED UNLESS IT DEALS

WITH ITS UNIONS AND FIERCE

COMPETITION FROM ASIA.

PAT?

Pat: I THINK IT IS

GREAT.

GOD BLESS YOU.

I DON'T KNOW WHO TAYLOR

IS -- I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH

TITAN RUBBER COUNTRY, BUT,

MAN, HE LAID IT ON THE

LINE.

YOU DON'T TALK THAT WAY IN

EUROPE TO THE FRENCH.

YOU'RE VERY POLITE.

HE LAID IT ON THE LINE AND

TOLD THE TRUTH.

WORK FOR THREE HOURS, TALK

FOR THREE --

Terry: AND HOPEFULLY HE

WON'T HAVE TO DEFEND THOSE

STATEMENTS.

WE CAN WAIT AND SEE IF HE IS

RIGHT.

Pat: HE IS RIGHT.

THE PRODUCTIVITY IN FRANCE

IS APPALL.

APPALLING.

FRANCE IS A GREAT COUNTRY,

AND THEY HAVE A GREAT

HISTORY, BUT THEY'RE

SELF-DESTRUCTIVE.

THE AMAZING THING IS THAT

THE YOUTH IN FRANCE WENT ON

STRIKE, AND THEY HAD MASSIVE

DEDEMONSTRATIONS.

WHY?

BECAUSE THE RETIREMENT AGE

WAS BEING MOVED FROM, I

DON'T KNOW THE EXACT NUMBER,

BUT LET'S SAY FROM 57 TO 59

OR 60.

I[o!IW

SHIFT.

ArniwtqKÑw

TEENAGERS AND COLLEGE

STUDENTS WERE DEMONSTRATING

BECAUSE THEY THINK THAT IS

SO IMPORTANT.

DEAR, WHERETHEY?

GEORGE?

George: PAT, LET MESEE

IF I CAN INTEREST YOU IN A

NEW CAR.

WELL, A NEW SELF-DRIVING CAR

MADE ITS DEBUT IN THE LONE

STAR STATE.

IT WAS UNVEILED AT THE TEXAS

TRANSPORTATION FORUM IN

AUSTIN.

IT MAPS OUT ROADS AND

IDENTIFIES HAZARDS LIKE

OTHER CARS, PEDESTRIANS, AND

STREET LIGHTS.

THE CAR THEN CREATES A 3D

MAPPING SYSTEMpIT USES TO

GUIDEúITSELF.

TECHNOLOGY LIKEúúTHIS IS

STILL IN THE RESEARCH AND

DEVELOPMENT PHASE, BUT

RESEARCHERS HOPE IT COULD BE

ON THE ROADTHE NEXT

FIVEYEARS.

HEY,THE SOLAR FLARES

COME, FORGETABOUT THESE

SELF-DRIVING CARS.

EVERYTHING SHUTS DOWN.

Pat: BACK UP THE

HORSES, THAT'S WHERE WE

ARE.

THE SOLAR FLARES WILL NOT

AFFECT THE HORSE AND BUGGY.

Terry: COMING UP, THE

RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR

ARMS.

SOME SAY IT IS MORE THAN

JUST AN AMENDMENT, IT'S AN

INSURANCE POLICY.

*

Pat: GUNS, GUNS,

HUNTING, SHOOTING.

300MILLION GUNS IN AMERICA.

WE LIKE GUNS.

I WAS IN THE MILITARY.

I SCORED EXPERT WITH AN

AUTOMATIC RIFLE.

IT IS QUITE A MACHINE, THE

B.A. R.

I SHOT AN M-1 RIFLE.

AND THEY'VE GOT MORE

ADVANCED RIFLES NOW.

BUT I'VE BEEN ON THE PISTOL

RANGE AND YOU SHOOT SKEET

AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

IT IS KIND OF FUN.

SHOOTING IS A GOOD SPORT,

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ENJOY

DOING IT.

BUT THE TRAGIC SHOOTING AT

AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN

CONNECTICUT QUICKLY LED TO

MORE CALLS FOR CONTROL OF

THESE GUNS.

BUT THE OPPONENTS JUST AS

QUICKLY POINTED TO THE

SECOND AMENDMENT, AND ITS

GUARANTEE TO THE RIGHT TO

BEAR ARMS.

WHAT DOES THE SECOND

AMENDMENT ACTUALLY MEAN?

JENNIFER WISHON TAKES A LOOK

AT THAT QUESTION.

Reporter: EMOTION FUELS

DEBATE.

THE PEOPLE WANTED, BY AN

OVERWHELMING MARGIN, TO BAN

THESE WEAPONS.

I WILL TELL YOU HERE

TODAY YOU WILL TAKE MY

ABILITY TO PROTECT MY

VICTORIA FROM MY COLD, DEAD

HANDS.

Reporter: POLITICALLY,

THE ISSUE CAN BE A MINE

FIELD.

THE CRIMINALS WON'T GO TO

PURCHASE THE GUNS, BECAUSE

THERE WILL BE A BACKGROUND

CHECK, WHICH WILL STOP THEM

FROM THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE.

YOU MISSED THAT POINT

COMPLETELY.

AND I THINK IT IS BASIC.

SENATOR, I THINK YOU

MISSED THE POINT.

Reporter: FOR THE ROOT

OF THESE OPINIONS, YOU MUST

GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING,

WHEN THE SECOND AMENDMENT TO

THE CONSTITUTION GAVE A

BIRTH RIGHT TO ALL

AMERICANS.

A WELL-REGULATED MALITIA,

THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO

KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT

BE INFRINGED."

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

DR. GEORGE MALCOLM HAS

WRITTEN SEVERAL BOOKS ABOUT

THE ORIGINS AND MEANING OF

THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE.

"THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE

TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL

NOT BE I INFRINGEED GIVES

THE PEOPLE THE RIGHT TO

PROTECT THEMSELVES.

ABOUT 90 MILLION-OWNED

FIREARMS, AND WHEN YOU HAVE

90 MILLION GUN OWNERS, THAT

Ia6vIbt(>@>Qñz

%ÑOnGxJxi STATE, THAT THIS IS.rLHíC?,

A FIGHT HE

WOULD

NOT

WANT TO

PICK.

Reporter: A FIGHT

BRITAIN PICKED WITH AMERICAN

COLONISTS SPARKED THE

RIGHTS.

THEY HAD TO ADDRESS ABUSES

BY THE BRITISH CRONE BEFORE

AMERICA WON THEIR

INDEPENDENCE.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF

CONTUSIONS IN THE WORLD WHO

HAVE WONDERFUL LISTS OF

RIGHTS, AND THE PEOPLE DON'T

ENJOY ANY OF THEM.

Reporter: STILL, AS

RECENTLY AT 2008, THERE WERE

QUESTIONS IF THE SECOND

AMENDMENT GUARANTEED NOT

JUST A MALITIA'S RIGHT, BUT

AN INDIVIDUAL'S RIGHT TO

BEAR ARMS.

IT RULED THAT THE SECOND

AMEND THE PROTECTS AN

INDIVIDUAL'S RIGHT TO

POSSESS A FIREARM,

UNCONNECTED WITH SERVICE AND

A MALITIA, AND TO USE THAT

ARM FOR TRADITIONALLY LAW

FULL PURPOSES, SUCH AS

SELF-DEFENSE IN A HOME.

WHEN SOMEONE BREAKS IN

WITH A WEAPON, YOU HAVE NOT

JUST A RIGHT, BUT AN

OBLIGATION, TO PROTECT NOT

JUST YOUR RIGHT, BUT THE

LIVES OF THE LITTLE ONES

THAT HAVE BEEN ENTRUSTED TO

YOU.

Reporter: AND THE COURT

RULED THAT THE SECOND

AMENDMENT ISN'T UNLIMITED,

LAWS FORBIDDING THE CARRYING

OF FIREARMS IN SENSITIVE

PLACES SUCH AS SCHOOLS, AND

REGULATION OF THE COMMERCIAL

SALE OF ARMS.

THEN THERE IS THE CURRENT

PUSH BY PRESIDENT OBAMA TO

BAN CERTAIN TYPES OF GUNS.

BUTTHE HELLER OPINION SAYS

POPULAR GUNS CAN'T BE --

FAITHFUL INHERITANCE TO

THE INDIVIDUAL IN THE

CORNERSTONE.

INCLUDING THE SECOND

AMENDMENT.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: THANKS, JENNIFER.

I'M JUST NOT SURE THAT

SETTLED THE DEBATE.

Terry: THAT DEBATE IS

NOT GOING TO BE SETTLED FOR

A WHILE.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU THINK

ABOUT IT?

Terry: I AM AN

CONSTITUTION FOLLOWERS.

Pat: A WISCONSIN

CONSTITUTION FOLLOWER.

Terry: I THINK WE

SHOULD ALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO

DO THAT.

I WILL SAY THIS TO YOU: IT'S

A LITTLE SCARY TO ME.

GUNS ARE TO BE RESPECTED

DEEPLY.

AND TO JUST HAVE THEM

SITTING AROUND THE HOUSE --

PARM YO --

Pat: YOU CAN'T DO IT.

IT IS JUST DANGEROUS.

I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING,

TERRY, AND WE NEED TO POINT

IT OUT.

JUDGES AND COURTS COME DOWN

VERY HARD ON DISCHARGING A

FIREARM.

YOU WOULD THINK THAT

SOMEBODY THAT RAPED THEIR

GRANDMOTHER OR SOMETHING.

I KNOW A MAN IN THIS AREA

WHO WENT BEFORE A JUDGE IN

AN ADJOINING JURISDICTION.

HE HAD BEEN FRANTIC BECAUSE

HIS WIFE HAD LEFT HIM, AND

SHE WAS IN HIS MOTHER'S

HOME, AND HE JUST WANTED TO

TALK TO HER.

HE HAD A GUN AND HE FIRED IT

IN THE CEILING.

NOBODY GOT HIT AND HE DIDN'T

DISCHARGE IT AT ANYBODY.

GUESS WHAT HIS PENALTY WAS?

10 YEARS IN PRISON.

10 YEARS.

NOW, THAT'S SERIOUS STUFF.

SO I WOULD CAUTION PEOPLE

ABOUT USING FIREARMS.

IT LOOKS SO GOOD.

YOU SEE THE MOVIES AND THEY

HAVE ALL OF THESE GUN

BATTLES, BUT, LET ME TELL

YOU.

YOU USE A FIREARM IN THE

COMMISSION OF A FELONY, AND

IT'S BAD NEWS.

AND IF YOU DISCHARGE A

FIREARM IN A PLACE, THE LAWS

ARE VERY STRICT, AND JUDGES

ARE VERY STRICT.

SO, YEAH, WE'VE GOT THE

RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR THEM,

BUT YOU TAKE THEM AND

DISCHARGE THEM -- ALSO, IF

ONE OF THOSE CROOKS COMES

INTO YOUR HOME AND YOU WANT

TO DEFEND YOUR HOME, YOU

BETTER SHOOT HIM IN YOUR

BEDROOM.

BECAUSE IF YOU JUST HAPPEN

TO SEE HIM WALKING DOWN THE

HALL IN YOUR LIVING ROOM,

AND YOU HAPPEN TO WING HIM

WITH A FIREARM, HE COULD

PROBABLY BRING A LAWSUIT

AGAINST YOU FOR MALICIOUS

WOUNDING.

I KNOW IT SOUNDS BIZARRE,

BUT THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

YOU DON'T HAVE AN ABSOLUTE

RIGHT IN YOUR HOME TO SHOOT

SOMEBODY.

I JUST SAY THAT TO CAUTION

PEOPLE.

AND WE TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU

SHOULD DO WITH FIREARMS.

THE COURTS ARE VERY STRICT

ON THOSE WHO DISCHARGE

THEM.

Terry: YOU BETTER KNOW

YOUR RIGHTS, AND YOU BETTER

KNOW THE LAW.

Pat: YOU MAY KNOW YOUR

RIGHTS, AND YOU STILL GO TO

JAIL.

Terry: UP NEXT, SCOTT

ROSS HEADS TO THE STREETS OF

TEL AVIV, TO FIND OUT ABOUT

LIFE IN THE CROSS-HAIRS.

÷1AZRR7e%m1FOgFe>-+r/

vñlñ.zOp:OaDñ5pn

Pat: WELL, CHICAGO IS

IN THE HEARTLAND OF

AMERICA.

IMAGINE IF THE PEOPLE OF

CHICAGO LIVED UNDER THE

THREAT OF CONSTANT ROCKET

ATTACKS, OR AIR RAID SIRENS

PIERCED THROUGH THE EAR OF

AMERICA'S LARGEST CITIES.

FOR US, IT IS ALMOST

UNIMAGINABLE, BUT THAT IS

EXACTLY WHAT THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

RECENTLY SCOTT ROSS WENT

THERE TO FIND OUT HOW THEY

FEEL ABOUT BEING SURROUNDED

BY ENEMIES, AND WHAT THEY'RE

GOING TO DO TO PROTECT

THEMSELVES.

Reporter: IRAN

THREATENS TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF

THE MAP.

HAMAS WANTS AN ISLAMIC

STATE, INSTEAD OF ISRAEL.

SOME 200,000 MISSILES ARE

POINTED AT THE JEWISH

STATE.

IN ISRAEL'S NEXT WAR, TEL

AVIV IS EXPECTED TO BE

GROUND ZERO.

ARE YOU APPREHENSIVE AT

ALL ABOUT WAR?

IT DEPENDS WHAT WAR.

FOR EXAMPLE, IRAN OR

PALESTINIAN.

IT IS JUST ABOUT ALL OF THE

ARAB NATIONS ATTACKING US?

OR WHAT KIND OF WAR ARE YOU

TALKING ABOUT?

Reporter: WELL, THAT'S

INTERESTING BECAUSE YOU'RE

ASKING ME A GOOD QUESTION,

BUT YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY

ENEMIES, RIGHT?

YES.

WE CAN SAY THAT.

Reporter: DO YOU GET

ANXIOUS ABOUT THAT?

ACTUALLY, NO.

IN ISRAEL, WE HAVE A VERY

SECURITY KIND OF FEELING IN

EVERY DAY LIFE.

Reporter: I WENT TO THE

STREETS IN ISRAEL'S SECOND

LARGEST CITY TO ASK TEL AVIV

RESIDENTS IF THEY'RE AFRAID

AND IF THEY TRUST GOD TO

PROTECT THEM.

I MEAN, IF THERE WERE ROCKET

ATTACKS OR SCUDS, YOU HAVE

NO FEAR OF THAT?

I THINK MAYBE FOR PEOPLE

WHO LIVE IN TEL AVIV,

THEY'RE TRYING NOT TO DEAL

WITH THAT.

Reporter: IS IT

DENIAL?

I THINK IT IS SOMETIMES.

ILIKE THE LAST

PARTY DANCE ON THE TITANIC

BECAUSE PEOPLE DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT'S UP AHEAD.

YOU JUST HAVE TO SMILE AND

KEEP ON.

Reporter: SO WHEN YOU

HEAR YOUR ENEMIES ARE

SURROUNDING ISRAEL AND SAID

THEY'RE GOING TO DESTROY

ISRAEL, HOW DO YOU FEEL

ABOUT THAT?

IT HURTS ME TO KNOW THAT

SOMEONE OUT THERE WANTS TO

KILL ME BECAUSE I THINK I'M

A GOOD PERSON.

I BELIEVE I DO A LOT OF GOOD

THINGS EVERY DAY.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO LIVE IN

PEACE WITH ALL OF THE PEOPLE

AROUND ME.

WAS BORN IN ISRAEL.

AND EVERY SEVEN YEARS IT IS

A WAR.

IT IS GOING TO BE A WAR,

IT'S GOING TO BE A WAR.

Reporter: SURPRISINGLY,

IN NOVEMBER 201 2012 TEL

AVIV RESIDENTS HEARD AIR

RAID SIRENS FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN 20 YEARS.

HAMAS ROCKETS MADE AT LEAST

ONE DIRECT HIT IN A SOUTHERN

SUBURB.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD?

YES.

Reporter: YOU DO?

SURE.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

BELIEVE?

AFTER 2,000 YEARS AGO, WE

COME BACK TO ISRAEL.

AND WITH THE HELP OF GOD,

WE'RE GOING TO STAY.

Reporter: IN 2006,

HEZBOLLAH LAUNCHED MORE THAN

4,000 MISSILES AT ISRAEL'S

CIVILIANS DURING THE 34-DAY

SECOND LEBANON WAR.

THAT PROMPTED MILITARY

LEADERS TO RE-THINK THEIR

STRATEGY FOR PROTECTING THE

POPULATION.

AFTER THE SECOND LEBANON

WAR, ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT CONCLUSIONS WAS TO

PREPARE THE POPULATION, AND

PREPARING THEM IS AN ONGOING

PROCESS.

Reporter: I SAT DOWN

WITH FELIX SOFAIR, THE

FORMER HEAD OF ISRAEL'S

DEFENSE.

YOU HAVE A WORD THAT YOU

USE, "RESILIENCE."

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

RESILIENCE IS THE ABILITY

OF THE POPULATION TO COPE

WITH THE DISASTER.

Reporter: DO YOU MEAN

PSYCHOLOGICAL ORIFIC OR

PHYSICALLY OR WHAT?

TO PREPARE YOURSELF.

ALL OF THIS IS PART OF THE

RESELLIANS.qvh=Dm2ni]/> RESILIENCE.

Reporter:á?

DO BELIEVE IN

GOD

TAKEu

PREPARATION SERIOUSLY.

MORE THAN HALF THE

POPULATION HAS GAS MASKS,

AND EVERY HOME BUILT AFTER

1991 MUST HAVE ITS OWN BOMB

SHELTER.

I VISITED AHOFA AND SALOMI

AND THEIR FOUR CHILDREN.

THEY HELPED ME UNDERSTAND

HOW THEIR FAMILY COPES WITH

THE SITUATION.

WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO

LIVE OUR LIFE.

WE BELIEVE IN ANY CASE AND

IN ANY PLACE AND IN ANY

SITUATION, WE WILL BE

PROTECTED BECAUSE GOD

PROMISED THAT.

Reporter: THEY SHOWED

ME THE PUBLIC SHELTER IN

THEIR BUILDING, WHERE THEY

STORE SOME SUPPLIES.

AND IN THEIR KITCHEN, THE

FAMILY GAS MASKS.

I WAS READING ONE OF THE

PROMISES FROM ONE OF YOUR

PROPHETS ISAIAH, WHO SAID

"ALL THOSE AGAINST ISRAEL

WILL BE ASHAMED AND

DISGRACED AND THAT THEY WILL

BE AS NOTHING, AND THE ENEMY

SHALL PERISH."

SO WHEN YOU READ VERSES LIKE

THAT, IS THAT WHAT YOU TAKE

YOUR COMFORT IN?

GOD DOESN'T WANT THAT

ANYONE WILL DIE LIKE THIS

BECAUSE GOD LOVES EVERYONE.

AND HE DOESN'T WANT JUST TO

DESTROY THEM BECAUSE THEY

ARE BAD.

GOD WANTS THEM TO DO A

REPENTANCE.

Reporter: A VERY

PRACTICAL QUESTION IN THIS

REGARD: HOW DO YOU LOVE YOUR

ENEMY?

WE'RE PRAYING FOR THEM.

IT IS NOT EASY.

IT IS NOT EASY TO PRAY FOR

THOSE WHO MAKE YOU PAIN OR

THOSE WHO FRIGHTEN YOU, OR

ENEMIES, BUT WE'RE PRAYING

FOR THEM.

Pat: EXTRAORDINARY.

GOOD WORK, SCOTT.

SCOTT IS A GREAT REPORTER.

WE NEED MORE OF SCOTT ON THE

AIR.

I'M A FAN OF SCOTT.

Terry: WE HEAR SO MUCH

ABOUT ISRAEL AND WE TALK TO

ISRAELI PEOPLE, AND IT IS

WONDERFUL TO HEAR FROM THE

PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

Pat: I TALKED TO SOME

OF THE PEOPLE ON THE STREET,

AND SOME OF THE ANSWERS WERE

KIND OF LIKE WHO CARES.

WHY SHOULD WE FIGHT FOR

THESE THINGS.

THAT FAMILY WAS

EXTRAORDINARY.

THEIR ATTITUDE IS --

Terry: THE PEOPLE GET

WEARY, DON'T YOU THINK?

THIS GOES ON AND ON AND

ON --

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

WE HAD A STATION UP IN

METULA, AND WE'VE BEEN ALL

OVER THE PLACE, AND THEY'RE

BOMBED ALL OF THE TIME.

I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING

THERE DURING THAT WAR THEY

TALKED ABOUT, WHEN THOSE

ROCKETS WERE FALLING DOWN.

AND IT WAS SOMETHING.

BUT I KIND OF -- IT GETS MY

ADRENALIN GOING.

I GET A KICK OUT OF IT.

BUT MOST PEOPLE DON'T

EXACTLY ENJOY HAVING BOMBS

THROWING AT THEM.

Terry: NO.

A ROCKET WOULD NOT MAKE MY

DAY.

Pat: BUT IN THE NORTH,

UP IN MATULLA, EVERY DAY

THERE WOULD BE AN AIR RAID,

AND THE LITTLE KIDS WOULD

HAVE TO RUN INTO THE

SHELTER.

BEFORE LONG, IT GETS TO THEM

PSYCHOLOGICALLY.

Terry: OF COURSE, THAT

EVERY HOME SHOULD HAVE A

BOMB SHELTER.

Pat: WHAT THEY SAID, IT

IS GOING TO BE THE

PROTECTION OF THE LORD THAT

DOES IT.

Terry: COMING UP LATER,

PAT IS GOING TO ANSWER SOME

OF YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

JESSE SAYS, "I'VE BEEN

REJECTED BY A FEW CHURCHES

BECAUSE I REFUSED TO HAVE MY

CHILDREN BAPTIZED RIGHT

AFTER THEY WERE BORN."

SHE WANTS TO KNOW DOES THE

BIBLE EVEN TALK ABOUT

BAPTISM?

STAY TUNED FOR THE LATEST

INSTALLMENT OF "BRING IT

ON."

THAT'S NEXT.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IDENTITY THEFT IS ON THE

RISE AGAIN.

A STUDY BY JOB LINK STRATEGY

AND RESEARCH FOUND OVER

12 MILLION AMERICANS WERE

VICTIMIZED LAST YEAR ALONE.

THAT TRANSLATES INTO

SLIGHTLY MORE THAN ONE IN 20

CONSUMERS.

THE INCREASE IS ATTRIBUTED

TO A JUMP IN THE MORE

SERIOUS FORMS OF I.D. THEFT,

LIKE NEW ACCOUNT FRAUD.

A RECORD 13.9 MILLION

VICTIMS WERE SET BACK IN

2009.

A CLOSED ABORTION CLINIC IN

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, HAS

BEEN DENIED THEIR BID TO

REOPEN.

THE LIFE LEGAL DEFENSE

FOUNDATION SAYS THE NEW

WOMEN, ALL WOMEN CLINIC

STANDS ACCUSED OF INJURING

PATIEV;7o=ççU?")/VtF/J2"6okúMkii AND COBç÷Iñú6,3

VIOLATIONS.

THAT LED

TO

A 76 PAGE REPORT

BY THE ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF

PUBLIC HEALTH.

THE CLINIC OWNER'S LICENSE

WAS REVOKED IN MAY 2012.

SHE THEN TRIED TO TRANSFER

THE CLINIC TO A FRIEND USING

SEVERAL DIFFERENT METHODS,

BUT THE TWO FAILED TO COMPLY

WITH REQUIREMENTS FROM THE

STATE, SO ALABAMA IS

REJECTING THEIR ATTEMPT TO

REOPEN.

WELL, AS ALWAYS, YOU CAN 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.

Terry: TIME TO ANSWER

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, THE FIRST ONE IS FROM

JESSE, WHO SAYS, "I'VE BEEN

REJECTED BY A FEW DIFFERENT

CHURCHES BECAUSE I REFUSED

TO HAVE MY CHILDREN BAPTIZED

RIGHT AFTER THEY WERE BORN.

I'VE SEEN SOME CHURCHES HOLD

DEDICATION CEREMONIES FOR

NEWBORNS, AND I WOULD LIKE

TO GO THIS ROUTE.

IS THAT WRONG?

DOES THE BIBLE TALK ABOUT

INFANT BAPTISM, AND IF SO,

WHERE?"

Pat: THE ONLY THING I

KNOW OF IN THE BIBLE IS THE

BELIEVER'S BAPTISM, WHICH IS

BEING BURIED WITH CHRIST.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THERE

ABOUT SPRINKLING.

IN THE EARLY CHURCH, AS FAR

AS I CAN TELL, THAT WAS THE

ONLY FORM OF BAPTISM.

WHERE DID THE INFANT CONCEPT

COME FROM?

I WON'T GO INTO GREAT

DETAIL, BUT THE THOUGHT IS

PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH WHAT IS

CALLED ORIGINAL SIN.

AND THEY NEEDED TO BE

BAPTIZED IN ORDER TO COME

INTO THE GRACE OF GOD SO

THAT IF THEY DIED, THEY

WOULD DIE IN GRACE.

AND WHEN I ASKED THAT IT'S

SUPPOSED TO BE FAITH, AND

THE ANSWER IS THAT IT IS THE

FAITH OF THE PARENTS IN THE

SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM.

NOW, I DON'T AGREE WITH

THAT.

I'M A BAPTIST.

SO YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A

CHURCH THAT WILL TAKE YOU IN

AND WELCOME YOUR BELIEFS.

THE BAPTIS BAPTISTS, THAT'S

WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

PENT COASTALPENTECOSTAL

CHURCHES, MOST OF THE

CHURCHES, ALL SHARE THAT.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH BELIEVES

IN INFANT BAPTISM.

THERE ARE SOME, YOU'RE

RIGHT, THEY HAVE A

DEDICATION.

THEY DEDICATE THE CHILD TO

THE LORD, AND LATER ON HE

CAN MAKE THE DECISION ON HIS

OWN TO GET BAPTIZED.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF CHURCHES

THAT WILL WELCOME YOU WITH

OPEN ARMS.

Terry: MATTHEW SAYS, "I

RECENTLY BECAME A

CHRISTIAN.

I WANT TO QUIT USING

SMOKELESS TOBACCO, BUT I'M

HAVING SUCH A HARD TIME.

HOW DO I STOP?

CAN GOD TAKE THIS ADDICTION

AWAY FROM ME?"

Pat: THE BEST WAY TO

STOP IT IS TO LOOK IN THE

MIRROR.

THE NASTY TEETH, AND THE

TOBACCO -- I THINK THAT'S

WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

HOW DO YOU STOP AN

ADDICTION?

I'VE SAID THIS SEVERAL

TIMES, AND I'LL SAY IT

AGAIN, 21 DAYS.

21 DAYS.

YOU DON'T USE THAT STUFF FOR

21 DAYS.

I USED TO SMOKE A PACK AND A

HALF OF CIGARETTES EVERY

DAY, EVERY DAY.

I SAW WHAT IT DID TO

PEOPLE'S LUNGS.

I CAME OUT OF AN EVIDENCE

CLASS IN LAW SCHOOL, AND

THREW DOWN THE CIGARETTE AND

GROUNDED IT ON THE GROUND,

AND SAID THAT'S THE LAST

CIGARETTE I'LL EVER SMOKE.

IT WAS A DIFFICULT TIME FOR

21 DAYS.

AND THEN SOMETHING SHIFTED.

AND INSTEAD OF DESIRING THE

THINGS, I COULDN'T STAND

THEM.

THEY WERE REPULSIVE TO ME.

NOTHING WORSE THAN WET

CIGARETTE BUTTS.

Terry: I HAD THE SAME

THING HAPPEN TO ME.

I USED TO SMOKE, AND NOW I'M

ALLERGIC TO CIGARETTE

SMOKE.

Pat: IT'S CRAZY.

IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG.

EVERY DAY, TODAY I'M NOT

GOING TO SMOKE OR CHEW OR

WHATEVER YOUR DOING.

THE NEXT DAY, TODAY I'M NOT

GOING TO DO IT.

AND AFTER 21 DAYS, YOU KNOW,

YOU'RE HOME FREE.

Terry: IT OCCURS TO ME

IT MAY HELP TO CHEW GUM

BECAUSE SOMETIMES IT IS JUST

THAT CHEWING PROCESS.

THIS IS REILLY WHO SAYS, "I

HAVE A REALLY CLOSE FRIEND

THAT BELIEVES IN MORE THANqan'ib7

ONE GOD.

I THINK SHE IS HINDU, BUT

I'M NOT CERTAIN.

HOW DO I HELP HER REALIZE

THERE IS ONLY&oo#l2D n

HER TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: REILLY, I SUSPECT

THE FIRST THING YOU DO IS

TELL HER THERE IS ONLY ONE

GOD.

IF SHE BELIEVES IN ONE OF

THE TOP FIGURES IN THE HINDU

PANTHEON, YOU SAY I

REPRESENT THE GOD WHO IS

ABOVE THAT ONE.

AND HE IS ET CREATO IS THE

CREATOR OF EVERYTHING.

AND THESE OTHERS ARE MERELY

CREATIONS, AND I THINK

THEY'RE DEMONIC, BUT

WHATEVER.

AND THEN ASK HER TO PRAY TO

JESUS, AND WATCH JESUS.

THE LORD HAS GOT TO COME IN

AND INTERVENE IN A SITUATION

LIKE THAT, AND HE WILL.

IF SOMEBODY IS SINCERELY

SEEKING GOD, GOD HIMSELF

WILL APPEAR TO THEM.

JESUS IS APPEARING TO PEOPLE

ALL OVER THE MIDDLE EAST, TO

MUSLIMS AND PEOPLE IN ISLAM,

AND I DARE SAY THE HINDUS,

TOO.

ANYBODY WHO IS SINCERELY

SEEKING GOD, GOD WILL REVEAL

HIMSELF.

SO THE PRAYER IS, JESUS, IF

YOU ARE GOD, REVEAL YOURSELF

TO ME AND I WILL SERVE YOU.

LET HER PRAY THAT.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS KATRINA,

WHO SAYS, "I WAS LISTENING

TO A PASTOR SPEAK ON THE

RADIO.

HE SAID THAT THE BOOK OF

REVELATION STATES THAT GOD

HAS ALREADY PICKED THE

PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO BE

SAVED.

DOES THIS MEAN IF WE'RE NOT

CHOSEN WE DON'T HAVE A

CHANCE?

WILL YOU PLEASE CLEAR THIS

UP FOR ME?

NOW I'M WORRIED AND

CONFUSED."

Pat: IT'S AMAZING, WE

HAVE NO LAW IN AMERICA THAT

WILL KEEP SCREWBALLS OFF THE

RADIO.

SO PEOPLE CAN SAY ANYTHING

THEY WANT TO.

Terry: I THINK THERE IS

A LOT OF CONFUSION, THOUGH,

ABOUT THAT DOCTRINE OF

ELECTION, WHAT DOES THAT

MEAN AND HOW DO YOU TAKE

THAT?

Pat: YOU'RE EXACTLY

RIGHT.

THAT WAS EXTREME CALVINISM.

ONLY THE ELECTED ARE GOING

TO BE SAVED.

HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,

IT ISN'T GOD'S WILL THAT ANY

SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL

SHOULD COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE

OF THE TRUTH.

THAT'S WHAT HE SAYS.

AND JESUS CHRIST CAME TO

SEEK AND TO SAVE THAT WHICH

IS LOST.

SO THE HEART OF GOD IS

ALWAYS REACHING OUT TO THE

LOST, TO THOSE WHO DON'T

KNOW HIM.

IT ISN'T HIS WILL THAT ANY

SHOULD PERISH, BUT ALL

SHOULD COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE

OF THE TRUTH.

SO TO SAY HE HAS ELECTED A

SMALL GROUP AND THEY'RE THE

ONLY ONES?

YOU CAN SEE HOW THAT CHILLS

EVANGELISM, AND YOUR QUEST,

WHAT IF I'M NOT AMONG THE

ELECT.

YOU'RE ELECT IF YOU SAY YES

TO JESUS.

THAT'S WHAT DETERMINES IT.

NOW, WHAT HAPPENS IN TERMS

OF GOD'S FOREKNOWLEDGE AND

ALL OF THAT -- THAT REALLY

SHOULDN'T CONCERN YOU.

WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THAT

GOD LOVES YOU AND HE WANTS

YOU TO BE SAVED.

AND HE WANTS EVERYBODY TO BE

SAVED.

I WAS PRAYING, AND I BELIEVE

THE LORD -- I SAID, GOD,

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU, AND HE

SAID, I HAVE MADE HEAVEN

VERY LARGE, AND THERE IS

ROOM FOR MANY, MANY PEOPLE.

AND HE SAID YOUR JOB IS TO

BRING AS MANY OF THEM IN AS

POSSIBLE.

SO HE PUTS PEOPLE LIKE ME

AND OTHERS OUT THERE TO

PREACH THE WORD.

AND IT IS THE PREACHING OF

THE GOSPEL THAT BRINGS

PEOPLE TO SALVATION.

AND TO SAY, WELL, I'M SORRY,

HE'S GOT A NUMBER, AND YOU

LIVE IN BURBANK OR

SOMETHING, AND THERE CAN

ONLY BE 5,000 OF YOU SAVED,

AND THE REST OF YOU ARE

OUT.

THERE WAS A CHURCH THAT

BELIEVED THAT, 144,000.

AND AFTER THEY GOT MORE THAN

144,000, THEN THEY HAD TO

COME UP WITH ANOTHER

DOCTRINE.

THEY BLEW THE COUNT.

GOD HAS A BIG HEAVEN, A BIG

HEAVEN AND A BIG HEART.

AND HE WANTS PEOPLE SAVED.

THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED TO

KNOW.

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE DO LOVE HEARING FROM

YOU.

AND WE'LL ANSWER SOME MORE

TOMORROW.

STILL AHEAD, A 3 A.M. WAKEUP

FROM A MAN WHO WAS BANGING

AT THE DOOR AND HOLDING A

BLOODY KNIFE.

HE APPARENTLY STABBED

SOMEBODY.

NO, NO, NO.

AND HE WANTED ME TO GIVE

HIM A RIDE OUT OF TOWN.

Terry: GET THE REST OF

THE STORY, NEXT.

N=

Terry: THROUGHOUT HER

ENTIRE LIFE, JULIE SUFFERED

FROM THINGS THAT NO ONE

SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH.

SHE WAS ABUSED, MOLESTED,

AND EVEN RAISED HER KIDS ON

THE STREETS.

JULIE FREELY ADMITS THAT SHE

WAS BROKEN.

SHE JUST NEEDED THE RIGHT

PERSON TO HELP HER PICK UP

THE PIECES.

DON'T TOUCH ME!

A MAN GOES TO WORK, A MAN

COMES HOME, A MAN DRINKS.

MAN AND WOMAN FIGHT.

I MEAN, THERE WAS A LOT OF

FIGHTING THAT WE SAW.

WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN.

EVERY WEEKEND WE WOULD GO

CAMPING.

SOMETIMES THE ADULTS WOULD

GO INTO TOWN AND LEAVE US

WITH, YOU KNOW, THE FAMILIES

THAT LIVE CLOSER.

IT WAS THEIR OLDER TEENAGED

SON THAT MOLESTED ME WHEN I

WAS ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE.

IT CONTINUED.

AND WHAT HE HAD SAID TO GET

ME NOT TO TELL WAS, YOU KNOW

HOW YOUR DAD IS.

IF HE FINDS OUT, DO YOU KNOW

WHAT HE IS GOING TO DO TO

YOU?

THAT'S WHAT HE TOLD ME.

MY PARENTS GOT DIVORCED WHEN

I WAS ABOUT EIGHT.

AT ABOUT NINE I STARTED

SMOKING CIGARETTES, AND BY

11 I WAS DABBLING IN DRUGS.

I JUST SPIRALLED DOWN, YOU

KNOW.

I WAS DRINKING AND DOING

ACID.

I TRIED CRYSTAL METH AND

COKE.

I JUST -- IN MY MIND, I

WOULD LIVE TO DIE.

I JUST DIDN'T CARE.

I JUST SLICED MYSELF JUST SO

I HURT SO BAD.

BECAUSE OF THE MOLESTATION

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I JUST

DIDN'T FEEL WORTHY IN A

SENSE.

Reporter: JULIE RAN TO

THE STREETS, BROKEN.

SHE ENDED UP WITH TWO KIDS

FROM FAILED RELATIONSHIPS.

I ENDED UP HOMELESS.

LOST ALL MY STUFF.

ENDED UP ON THE STREETS WITH

THE TWO KIDS.

AND DURING THAT TIME, I

MEAN, I WAS DRINKING AND

DOING WHATEVER.

I JUST DIDN'T CARE.

I JUST THOUGHT, IF I DIE,

THE KIDS WOULD BE SO MUCH

BETTER.

Reporter: ON THE EDGE

OF SUICIDE, A MAN ON THE

STREET HANDED JULIE A

BIBLE.

WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER, WE

WENT TO CATHOLIC CHURCH.

SO WE WEREN'T ALLOWED TO

HAVE BIBLES.

SO HERE IS MY FIRST BIBLE.

I WAS, LIKE, WOW, THIS IS

GREAT.

AND EVENTUALLY READING THE

WORD, I CAME TO THIS POINT

WHERE I WAS GOING TO DIE OR

I WAS GOING TO LIVE.

AND FROM READING THE BIBLE,

I MADE A DECISION TO LIVE.

MY SECOND CHILD, SHE WOKE ME

UP AND SHE SAID, GOD TALKED

TO ME.

I NEVER DISCUSSED GOD WITH

HER.

AND SHE SAYS, HE TALKED TO

ME.

AND MAMA, HE SAYS EVERYTHING

IS GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

AND (SOBBING) THAT WAS THE

POINT.

WHEN YOU BEAT YOURSELF UP SO

MUCH, AND YOU HAVE THIS

LITTLE ONE TELLING YOU

THAT -- I WAS LOOKING FOR

HELP, AND THAT JUST MEANT A

LOT.

I KIND OF GOT IT TOGETHER.

AND I GOT OFF THE STREETS.

AND I WAS A SINGLE MOM FOR

SO LONG, AND I GUESS I WAS

SEEKING OUT THIS FATHER

FIGURE FOR THE KIDS.

IN MY MIND, I JUST FELT LIKE

THEY WERE MISSING SOMETHING,

LIKE I COULDN'T DO ENOUGH.

I FELT I NEEDED A

PROTECTOR.

I GUESS THAT MAKES SENSE.

Reporter: WANTING A

PROTECTOR, JULIE MARRIED AND

DELIVERED HER THIRD CHILD.

THE MAN BECAME A MONSTER.

AND HER REALITY BECAME A

NIGHTMARE.

HE PUSHED ME AWAY FROM

CHRISTIANITY -- I ALLOWED

HIM TO.

HE DESTROYED MY FAMILY.

HE WAS SO ABUSIVE.

I FELT LIKE A PRISONER.

ME AND THE KIDS WERE

SLEEPING IN MY ROOM.

AND HE HAD JUST GONE OFF.

AND HE WAS LEAVING AGAIN.

AND WE WERE SCARED.

AND WE WERE ALL HUDDLED UP

IN MY BEDROOM.

AND HE COMES BANGING ON THE

HOUSE.

AND THE KIDS SAY, DON'T

ANSWER IT.

DON'T ANSWER IT.

AND I'M, LIKE, I HAVE TO.

HE IS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY.

I ANSWER THE DOOR, AND HE

HAS GOT A KNIFE IN HIS

HANDS, AND IT'S GOT BLOOD,

AND APPARENTLY HE HAD JUST

STABBED SOMEBODY, AND HE

WANTED ME TO GIVE HIM A RIDE

OUT OF TOWN.

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO.

NO, NO, NO!

AND I STARTED DRIVING,

AND HE WAS IN AND OUT.

AND HE WOULD COME TO, WAKE

UP, AND HE WOULD(vJe/rá

ANGRY.paá7)%ZcçYÑZ.'

AND I'M LIO, LIKE, PLEASE,

JUST PUT THE GUN DOWN -- PUT

THE KNIFE DOWN.

GOD, IN MY HEAD -- GOD,

PLEASE PROTECT US.

I MADE IT PROBABLY ABOUT 30

MINUTES OUT OF TOWN, AND I

FINALLY WAS ABLE TO SAY,

LISTEN, I'M ALMOST OUT OF

GAS.

I'VE GOT TO GET BACK TO THE

KIDS.

YOU KNOW THEY'RE PROBABLY

SCARED.

HE DIDN'T CARE ABOUT ANY OF

THAT.

HE GOT OUT OF THE CAR, AND I

JUST STARTED CRYING.

I'M DRIVING AS FAST AS I

CAN.

I'M LOOKING E IN MY REAR

REAR-VIEW MIRROR, COULD HE

STILL BE BEHIND ME.

I GOT A CALL IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE NIGHT, THAT HE STOLE

A CAR, WAS DRIVING 80 MILES

PER HOUR, HIT A TREE AND

DIED.

IT WAS ME OR HIM, AND I'M

GLAD I'M HERE FOR MY

BABIES.

Reporter: JULIE STARTED

TO PICK UP THE PIECES OF HER

LIFE.

AND YEARS LATER, SHE MET

BRIAN.

I SAW IN HIM THE COMMON

DESIRE TO HAVE A GOOD LIFE

AND TO HAVE A FAMILY, AND

EVERYTHING I DREAMED ABOUT

AND THAT I SOUGHT AFTER IN

THE WRONG PEOPLE.

Reporter: BOTH BRIAN

AND JULIE WANTED TO START

THEIR FAMILY, SO THEY

MARRIED.

I FOUND A BIBLE IN THE

HOUSE, AND I STARTED PICKING

IT UP AND STARTED READING

IT.

I THINK I WAS READING ALMOST

DAILY, AND I WAS JUST TRYING

TO GET THE WORD IN.

WE DECIDED TO DRIVE DOWN TO

TENNESSEE TO VISIT MY DAD

AND MY FAMILY.

WE WENT TO CHURCH.

AND WHEN WE WENT THERE, IT

FELT LIKE THE SERMON WAS

SPEAKING TO US.

WE BOTH JUST WANTED TO GET

UP AND GIVE OUR LIVES, BUT

WE WERE BOTH SO NERVOUS AND

SCARED BECAUSE IT WAS ALL

NEW AGAIN.

Reporter: MOVED BY THE

HOLY SPIRIT, JULIE AND BRIAN

RETURNED TO THAT CHURCH.

AND, BOY, AS SOON AS WE

GOT TO CHURCH, WE BOTH HAD

THE CALLING.

WE WENT UP AT THE SAME TIME,

WHICH IS PRETTY AMAZING, AND

GAVE OUR LIVES TO THE LORD

AND STARTED OVER.

GOING THROUGH WHAT I DID,

IT'S LIKE YOU ALWAYS HAVE

THIS WEIGHT ON YOUR BACK.

AND YOUR LIFE IS

RESTRICTED.

YOU JUST HAVE NO FREEDOM.

AND I CAN TELL YOU WHEN I

MADE THE DECISION THAT

LITERALLY, PHYSICALLY, THIS

PEACE CAME OVER ME.

IT'S AMAZING.

I THANK GOD THAT I CAN

LOVE.

Terry: I THINK IT WAS

C.S. LEWIS WHO CALLED THE

HOLY SPIRIT THE HOUND OF

HEAVEN.

THE ONE WHO KEEPS COMING,

WHO KEEPS PRESSING, WHO

KEEPS COMING AFTER US.

PAT SAID EARLIER THAT IT IS

NOT GOD'S WILL THAT ANYONE

SHOULD PER RISEN -- PERISH,

BUT ALL SHOULD COME TO THE

SAVING KNOWLEDGE OF WHO HE

IS, OF HIS GREAT LOVE, OF

HIS FORGIVENESS.

ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS I

LOVE ABOUT JULIE'S STORY IS

YOU SEE GOD TIME AND TIME

AGAIN COMING AFTER HER,

COMING AFTER HER.

SOMETIMES WHEN BAD THINGS

HAVE HAPPENED TO US, WHEN WE

HAVE COME FROM DIFFICULT

PLACES IN OUR LIVES, IT IS

HARD TO RECEIVE THE LOVE OF

GOD.

IT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND HOW

MUCH HE LOVES US.

IT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND WE

REALLY CAN BE HEALED AND SET

FREE FROM OUR PAST.

NOW, I DON'T KNOW WHERE

YOU'RE AT TODAY, BUT MAYBE

THERE ARE THINGS IN YOUR

BACKGROUND, IN YOUR LIFE, IN

YOUR TEACHING THAT ARE

KEEPING YOU FROM KNOWING

GOD.

HE WANTS TO KNOW YOU.

THE HOUND OF HEAVEN TODAY IS

KNOCKING, KNOCKING ON YOUR

DOOR.

SAYING COME, WHO SO FAR WILL

COME, ANYONE IS WELCOME TO

COME INTO THE PRESENCE OF

GOD AND TO ASK HIS

FORGIVENESS.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.

AS JULIE READ THE WORD OF

GOD, AND AS GOD PURSUED HER

AND SHE FELT THAT LOVE, SHE

SAID, I WANT TO KNOW HIM.

AND THEN WHAT DID SHE DO?

SHE GOT BEFORE HIM HOW MANY

BLEHUMBLY, AND SHE SAID,

GOD, I NEED YOU.

EVERY ONE OF US IS IN THE

SAME POSITION.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE THINK IF

THEY HAVEN'T GONE THROUGH

SOMETHING TRAGIC OR IF THEY

HAVEN'T DONE SOMETHING

HORRIBLE, THAT THEY DON'T

NEED THE SAME KIND OF

FORGIVENESS.

THE BIBLE SAYS EVERY ONE OF

US HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN

SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

WE NEED A SAVIOR, ONE WHO

SAVES US FROM OUR OWN SIN,

AND THAT ONE IS JESUS.

HE DIED FOR YOU AND HE DIED

FOR ME.

AND TODAY IT IS THE SPIRIT

OF GOD SPEAKING TO YOUR

HEART SAYING COME, COME

HOME.

LET ME LOVE YOU.

LET ME FORGIVE YOU.

LET ME TEACH YOU.

LET ME SHOW YOU.

LET ME FILL YOU.

LET ME GIVE YOU THE LIFE YOU

WERE DESIGNED TO HAVE.

YOU CAN BEGIN THAT JOURNEY

RIGHT NOW BY SAYING YES TO

GOD.

JUST HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE

HIM.

ASK HIM TO FORGIVE YOU FOR

YOUR SINS.

SAY, JESUS, I WANT TO KNOW

YOU.

I WANT YOU TO BE THE SAVIOR

OF MY SOUL.

THE LOVER OF MY SOUL.

THE ONE WHO REDEEMS ME FROM

MYSELF AND ALL THAT HAS

HAPPENED IN MY LIFE.

AND THEN I WANT TO LIVE FOR

YOU.

SO FILLá÷t

SPIRIT.

CHANGE THE WAY I THINK.

GIVE ME A NEW BEGINNING, A@áQáR@

THAT'S GOD'S WILL FOR YOU?

WILL YOU SAY YES TO IT?

IF YOU WOULD LIKE SOMEONE TO

PRAY WITH YOU, YOU CAN CALL

THE TOLL-FREE NUMBER YOU'RE

GOING TO SEE COME UP ON YOUR

SCREEN.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO

KNOW JESUS IN MY HEART AND

LIFE.

THEY WOULD LOVE TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

PAT?

Pat: WELL, FOLKS, YOU

CAN CALL, AS TERRY HAS BEEN

TELLING YOU.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

WELL, THAT'S ALL THE TIME

WE'VE GOT FOR TODAY'S

PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, PUT AN END TO

RESTLESS NIGHTS.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO GET

THE BEST SLEEP OF YOUR

LIFE.

WOW!

AND TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM MATTHEW:

"SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND

HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL

OF THESE THINGS WILL BE

GIVEN TO YOU AS WELL."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

FOR TERRY AND GEORGE, THIS

IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
