REMEMBER ME.

Lee: INSIDE THE HISTORY

CHANNEL'S NEWEST MINI

SERIES.

WE'RE TELLING A STORY

THAT PEOPLE LIVE BY.

Lee: BASED ON THE

BEST-SELLING BOOK OF ALL

TIME.

WE SIT DOWN WITH PRODUCERS

MARK BERNETT AND ROMA

DOWNING.

IT IS HUMAN, IT IS

CONNECTED, IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

Lee: AND THEY TELL US

HOW THEY BROUGHT THE BIBLE

TO LIFE, TODAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

THE PROJECT WAS MEANT TO

GLORIFY GOD.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

AND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

ACCORDING TO THE WHITE HOUSE

TODAY THE PLANES WOULD FALL

FROM THE AIR, MARS WOULD

COME CLOSER TO EARTH, THE

MARTIANS WOULD LAND AND

BEGIN THEIR ATTACK, DREAD

DISEASE WOULD SPREAD

THROUGHOUT THE LAND, AND

MILLIONS OF BABIES WOULD

DIE.

THE COUNTRY WOULD BE OVERRUN

BY ILLEGAL ALIENS, CRIME

WOULD BE ON THE INCREASE --

Terry: AND HERE WE ALL

ARE.

Pat: AND NOTHING HAS

HAPPENED.

AND THE MEDIA IS LAUGHING

NOW AT THE PRESIDENT FOR

OVERSTATING THIS STUFF.

AND, OF COURSE, YOU KNOW,

THIS IS JUST THE FIRST DAY.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT.

Pat: BUT THEOR THEY'RE

EARNESTLY HOPING THE SKY

WILL FALL.

I'M STARTING THIS PROGRAM.

YESTERDAY WE HAD AN

ALLIGATOR ON THIS PROGRAM.

Terry: WE DID.

Pat: A FEATURED

ALLIGATOR.

AND YOU PETTED THE

ALLIGATOR.

Terry: I DID PET THE

ALLIGATOR.

Pat: DO YOU WANT A PET

ALLIGATOR?

Terry: NO, I DON'T.

Pat: THE GATOR BOY, A

WONDERFUL GUY.

I WANT TO SHOW YOU MY PET.

ARE YOU READY?

Terry: UH-HUH.

Pat: HE IS A HORSE, AND

HIS NAME IS UFANO.

THIS IS MY PET.

Terry: WOW, LOOK AT

HIM.

Pat: ISN'T HE

BEAUTIFUL?

Terry: HE IS

BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: 17 AND THREE HANDS

FROM PORTUGAL.

THIS IS NOT AN ALLIGATOR.

THIS IS A PORTUGUESE HORSE.

Terry: HE IS

BEAUTIFUL.

HOW OLD IS HE?

Pat: HE IS ABOUT 11.

HER IS A LUCITANO.

Terry: I KNOW YOU LOVE

RIDING HIM.

Pat: I LOVE HIM.

BUT HE IS SO GENTLE AND SO

NICE.

I WAS DOING SOME TRICK

THINGS WITH HIM YESTERDAY,

AND HE IS AMAZING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF

THAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU WANT

TO TRADE IN YOUR

ALLIGATOR --

Terry: OR AT LEAST KEEP

HIM AWAY FROM THE BARN.

Pat: TERRY WILL ACCEPT

ALL USED ALLIGATORS,.

Terry: OH, NO YOU

DONE.

DO NOW SEND THOSE.

AS PAT MENTIONED EARLIER,

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS BEEN

WARNING OF TERRIBLE

CONSEQUENCES IF THESE CUTS

THAT THEY'VE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT TOOK PLACE.

SOME CALLED IT JUST SCARE

TACTICS, AND OTHERS SAY IF

YOU REALLY WANT TO CUT

GOVERNMENT SPENDING, THERE

ARE PLENTY OF PLACES TO

LOOK.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: FOR WEEKS

NOW, OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIALS HAVE WARNED

FEDERAL SPENDING CUTS WOULD

SPELL DISASTER, LIKE AIRPORT

SECURITY.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THOSE

LINES REALLY GROW.

Reporter: EDUCATION

SECRETARY ARNIE DUNCAN

CLAIMED TEACHERS WERE

ALREADY GETTING FIRED.

OF COURSE THE "WASHINGTON

POST" THAT TO BE WRONG, AND

DUNCAN SAU SOFTENED HIS

WORDING.

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

TEACHERS WILL POTENTIALLY

LOSE THEIR JOB.

Reporter: AND THE

PRESIDENT IS LEADING THE

PACK, PLAYING THE FEAR CARD

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

President Obama: THIS

IS GOING TO BE A BIG HIT ON

THE ECONOMY.

Reporter: MANY

CONSERVATIVES SAY THE WHITE

HOUSE IS OVERSTATING THE

CASE.

WE DON'T HAVE A REVENUE

PROBLEM.

PROBLEM.

WE HAVE A SPENDING PROBLEM.

AMERICA IS GOING TO WAKE

UP AND NOTICE NO DIFFERENCE

IN THE CUTS, SO NOW HE IS

SAYING, IT MIGHT TAKE A

MONTH BEFORE YOU NOTICE.

HE IS BUYING TIME BECAUSE HE

KNOWS THE CUTS ARE PROBABLY

GOING INTO EFFECT, AND NO

ONE IS GOING TO NOTICE.

Reporter: AND CRITICS

SAY IF WASHINGTON REALLY

WANTS TO CUT SPENDING, THERE

ARE PLENTY OF PLACES TO DO

IT.

A STUDY BY THE GENERAL

ACCOUNTING OFFICE IN 2011

FOUND WASHINGTON WASTES

BETWEEN $100 BILLION AND

$$200 BILLION BECAUSE SO

MANY PROGRAMS ARE SET UP

THAT ARE REALLY BASICALLY

DOING THE SAME THING FROM

DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE

GOVERNMENT.

CUTTING COULD HELP TRIM THIS

KIND OF WASTE.

MULTIPLE AGENCIES THAT

OVERSEE FOOD PROGRAMS, AND

20 PROBLEMS THAT HELP THE

HOMELESS.

SPENDING NEARLY $

$1.7 BILLION IN 2010 TO

MAINTAIN 77,000 UNDERUSED OR

UNUSED BUILDINGS.

THE FAILED SOLAR CELL

MANUFACTURING COMPANY

SOLINDRA COST $528 MILLION.

THE OFFICIALS FROM THE

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

AND ENERGY APPROVING A

$76 MILLION GRANT FOR A

WOODS ETHANOL PLANT IN

WOODS, GEORGIA, DESPITE

CONCERNS ABOUT IT.

THE PLANT CLOSED IN A YEAR

WITHOUT PRODUCING ANY

ETHANOL.

THE DEPARTMENT OF

AGRICULTURE SPENT $2 MILLION

ON AN INTERN PROGRAM THAT

HIRED ONLY ONE FULL-TIME

INTERN.

AND THEY AWARDED A GRANT OF

$41,000 TO FUND A CHINESE

STUDY ON SWINE MANURE.

ALL OF THAT MONEY WASHINGTON

BORROWS HURTS THE ECONOMY.

EVERY PENNY THE

GOVERNMENT BORROWS IS A

PENNY THE PRIVATE SECTOR

CAN'T BORROW TO GROW

BUSINESSES, HIRE PEOPLE, AND

ADD JOBS.

Reporter: THE

$85 BILLION IN CUTS GO INTO

EFFECT AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

CONGRESS HAS ALREADY GONE

HOME FOR THE WEEKEND, BUT

ITS LEADERS ARE MEETING AT

THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY.

OFFICIALS SAY THE PRESIDENT

IS STILL HOPEFUL SOMETHING

CAN BE WORKED OUT.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS INCREDIBLE,

BUT HE KEEPS SAYING IN ORDER

TO GET A BALANCED APPROACH,

YOU'VE GOT TO RAISE TAXES,

RAISE TAXES.

AND THE REPUBLICANS ARE

HOLDING FIRM.

IF THEY HOLD FIRM, THEIR

BASE WILL BE WITH THEM.

IF THEY BREAK ON THIS ONE,

THEY'VE GOT DID A PROBLEM.

ANOTHER WASHINGTON FIGURE

SAYS HE WAS THREATENED BY

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

AND THIS PARTICULAR

GENTLEMEN HAPPENED TO BE A

KEY PLAYER IN THE PREVIOUS

DEMOCRATIC ADMINISTRATION.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

LANI DAVIS SAYS THE

ADMINISTRATION PUT PRESSURE

ON THE WASHINGTON TIMES TO

STOP RUNNING HIS COLUMNS.

DAVIS IS A LONG-TIME

SUPPORTER OF FORMER

PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON AND

AN OBAMA SUPPORTER, BUT

APPARENTLY SOMETHING HE

WROTE UPSET THE WHITE

HOUSE.

HE TOLD WASHINGTON RADIO

STATION WMAL, THAT AN OBAMA

OFFICIAL ONCE CONTACTED AN

EDITOR AT THE TIMES.

THE OFFICIAL TOLD THE

EDITOR, QUOTE,"IF HE

CONTINUED TO RUN MY COLUMNS,

HE WOULD LOSE OR HIS

REPORTERS WOULD LOSE THEIR

WHITE HOUSE CREDENTIALS."

DAVIS SAYS HE DIDN'T KNOW

WHY THE CALL WAS MADE, AND

EARLIER THIS WEEK BOB

WOODRUFF SAID AN OBAMA

OFFICIAL CRITICIZED HIM FOR

HIS REPORTING ON THE

PRESIDENT'S ROLE IN THE

SEQUESTER CRISIS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTS THE.

Parker SUPREME COURT

WANTS THEM TO OVER TURN THE

MEASURE ON SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

OBAMA PERSONALLY SIGNED OFF

ON THE MOVE, MARKING THE

FIRST TIME A U.S. PRESIDENT

HAS URGED THE HIGH COURT TO

EXPAND THE RIGHT OF GAY AND

LESBIANS TO WED.

THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCED

BEFORE THE ELECTION LAST

YEAR, HE NOW SUPPORTS

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

IN 2008, HE OPPOSED IT.

THE PRESIDENT CALLED HIS

CHANGE IN VIEWS, QUOTE,"AN

EVOLUTION."

MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN

AND A WOMAN.

President Obama: MY

FEELINGS ABOUT THIS ARE

CONSTANTLY EVOLVING.

OUR JOURNEY IS NOT COMPLETE

UNTIL OUR GAY BROTHERS AND

SISTERS ARE TREATED LIKE

ANYONE ELSE UNDER THE LAW.

Wendy: THE PRESIDENT

LAST YEAR HE BELIEVES THE

ISSUE SHOULD BE LEFT UP TO

THE TATE STATES TO DECIDE.

NOW THE SUPREME COURT COULD

DECIDE WHETHER TO REDEFINE

MARRIAGE FOR MANY OF THOSE

STATES.

THE CHICAGO BOARD OF

EDUCATION PASSED A NEW

POLICY IN WEDNESDAY, IT

MANDATES A SET AMOUNT OF

TIME BE SPENT ON SEX ED.

MOST START IN FIFTH GRADE.

CHICAGO HAS THE THIRD

LARGEST PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM

IN THE COUNTRY.

PARENTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO

OPT THEIR CHILDREN OUT OF

THE SEX ED PROGRAM.

PAT, IS KINDERGARTEN TOO

EARLY TO TALK ABOUT THE

BIRDS AND THE BEES?

Pat: ARE YOU KIDDING?

THOSE LITTLE KIDS DON'T HAVE

A CLUE.

IT IS LIKE TRYING TO OPEN A

ROSEBUD BEFORE IT IS READY.

THEY'RE TOO YOUNG.

THIS IS ABSURD.

HERE YOU'VE GOT ONE OF THE

FAILING SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN

THE UNITED STATES -- I

UNDERSTAND THERE IS

SOMETHING IN EXCESS OF 60%

OF ALL OF THE CHICAGO

TEACHERS SEND THEIR CHILDREN

TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS BECAUSE

THEY DON'T WANT THEM TO BE

EXPOSED TO THE FAILING

SCHOOL SYSTEM UP THERE.

AND TO ADD THIS -- WHY DON'T

YOU TEACH THEM ABOUT HOW TO

READ AND WRITE AND COUNT AND

DO COMPUTERS INSTEAD OF

GETTING INTO SEX EDUCATION?

WHO NEEDS IT AT THAT AGE.

IT IS HORRIBLE.

THAT IS JUST ONE MORE OF THE

LIBERAL INITIATIVES TO FORCE

THEIR POINT OF VIEW.

YOU SEE, WE BELIEVE IN

AMERICA, IN FREEDOM, IN FREE

CHOICE, FREE ENTERPRISE,

FREEDOM.

BUT THE LIBERALS, THE

PROGRESSIVE, SO-CALLED, THEY

WANT TO ENFORCE THEIR POINT

OF VIEW.

THEY WANT PEOPLE ACCEPTING

WHAT THEY WANT.

AND IF PEOPLE WON'T ACCEPT

IT, THE RUSSIANS WERE

WILLING TO PUT THEM IN

GULOGS, AND THE CHINESE HAVE

BEEN WILLING TO PUT THEM IN

PRISON.

HERE IN AMERICA, THE

LIBERALS THINK THEY'VE GOT

THEM IN SCHOOL, AND THEY

WANT TO INDOCTRINATE THEM

AND FORCE THEM INTO A

MINDSET THAT IS CONTRARY TO

WHAT THEIR PARENTS BELIEVE.

Wendy: HERE IS SOME

GOOD NEWS, PAT: HOUSING

SALES ARE PICKING UP, AND

THE LOWEST MORTGAGE RATES IN

DECADES ARE THE KEY REASON

WHY.

> THE AVERAGE RIGHT ON A

30-YEAR MORTGAGE STANDS AT

3.51%, THAT IS CLOSE TO THE

RECORD OF 3.31% SET LAST

NOVEMBER.

THE ULTRA LOW RATES HAVE

ENCOURAGED MANY PEOPLE TO

REFINANCE, AND THAT OFTEN

LEADS TO LOWER MONTHLY

PAYMENTS AND MORE SPENDING

MONEY.

IN 1960, THE MOVIE "EXITOUS"

CAME OUT.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL TELLS US,

THOSE WORDS NOW HAVE A

PERMANENT HOME IN ISRAEL.

DISED

Reporter: THE ACADEMY

AWARD-WINNING SCORE

CONTAINED NO WORDS, BECAUSE

NO WORDS COULD SATISFY THE

COMPOSER, DIRECTOR, AND

PUBLISHER, UNTIL CHRISTMAS

1961.

I PUT THE NEEDLE ON THE

RECORD, AND I HEAR BOM, BOM,

BOM, BOM.

AND THE WORDS, "THIS LAND IS

MINE" CAME INTO MY MIND.

I SAID, THAT'S THE STORY,

THE WHOLE STORY OF EXODUS.

THE FIRST WORDS ARE,

"THIS LAND IS MINE" AND BY

THE TIME I GOT THOSE WORDS

WRITTEN, GOD GAVE ME THE

NEXT WORDS.

Reporter: THE WORDS

GAVE HOPE TO YOUNG BOYS,

LIKE SHIA BENAHULA.

WE GREW UP WITH THE

FEELING DURING THE

HOLOCAUST, OUR PEOPLE WERE

ABANDONED, BUT LISTENING TO

THIS SONG AND UNDERSTANDING

WE ARE NOT ALONE, THAT WAS

VERY SPECIAL FOR ME.

Reporter: YEARS LATER,

HE BECAME INTERNATIONAL

RELATIONS DIRECTOR AT

ISRAEL'S RENOWNED HOLOCAUST

MEMORIAL.

HE ASKED BOON FOR A COPY OF

THE WORDS TO EXODUS.

CONNECTING THOSE WORDS IS

THE STORY OF THE PEOPLE WHO

BUILT THIS COUNTRY, DID

SPITE WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT WILL

GIVE THE MESSAGE TO FUTURE

GENERATIONS.

Reporter: FOR BOON, THE

MOMENT WAS PROFOUND.

FOR ME, THIS IS ONE OF

THE TWO OR THREE MOMENTS IN

MY LIFE I CONSIDER THE

REASON I'M ALIVE.

AND I THINK GOD'S PURPOSE

FOR ME TO BE HERE ON THE

EARTH.

Reporter: THE CHRISTMAS

CARD WILL BECOME PART OF HIS

PERMANENT COLLECTION.

DURING THE CEREMONY,

ORGANIZERS PLAYED A VERSION

OF EXODUS, SONG BY BOONE

YEARS AGO AT MESSADA.

* GOD GAVE HIS LAND TO ME

* THIS LAND IS MINE

* THIS LAND IS MINE

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, JERUSALEM.

*

Wendy: WOW, INCREDIBLE

STORY AND INCREDIBLE MOVIE.

Pat: IT WAS A GREAT

MOVIE.

IT BRINGS TEARS TO YOUR

EYES.

PAT IS A DEAR FRIEND AND HE

IS A WONDERFUL GUY.

WHAT A TRIBUTE.

WELL-DESERVED.

AND THAT COULD BECOME THE

THEME SONG OF ISRAEL,

PROBABLY IN A SENSE, IT HAS.

THIS LAND IS MINE.

GOD GAVE THIS LAND TO ME.

IT JUST CAME TO HIM, AND

THAT WAS INSPIRED BY THE

LORD.

Terry: BEAUTIFULLY

DONE.

BEAUTIFULLY DONE.

UP NEXT, CHILDREN WHO ARE

BEING SOLD AND TRADED FOR

SEX IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.

THEY COME IN THE CAR.

THEY ASK HOW MUCH IT IS.

I TELL THEM, AND THEY SAY IF

THEY WANT ME, AND IF THEY

WANT ME, THEY TAKE ME.

Terry: THE BATTLE TO

BEAT CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING

IN BRAZIL, AFTER THIS.

*

Pat: IN JUST A FEW

YEARS, THE WORLD'S EYES WILL

TURN TO BRAZIL AS THE NATION

WILL BE HOSTING ITS 2016

SUMMER OLYMPICS.

COUNTRIES THAT HOST THE

GAMES LOOK FORWARD TO THE

MONEY AND THE TOURISTS, AND,

OF COURSE, THE PUBLICITY.

BUT THERE IS A TRAGIC SIDE

ON THESE OLYMPICS AS WELL:

THE SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF

CHILDREN.

OUR HEATHER CELLS TRAVELLED

TO BRAZIL TO BRING YOU THIS

STORY.

Reporter: IN RECENT

YEARS, GROWING NUMBERS OF

TOURISTS HAVE FLOCKED TO

NORTHEASTERN BRAZIL.

HERE THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF

THE REGION'S BEAUTIFUL

BEACHES, THE CLON COLONIAL

ARCHITECTURE AND IT'S

GIRLS.

CBN NEWS TRAVELLED TO BRAZIL

TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE

CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING EP

DEM.

EPIDEMIC.

TAXI DRIVERS, HOTEL WORKERS

AND DRUG DEALERS FORM AN

UNDERGROUND NETWORK

CONNECTING SUPPLY AND

DEMAND.

AND EVERY WEEK, HIS AGENCY

RECEIVES FIVE TO SIX NEW

VICTIMS IN NEED OF HELP.

AFTER OUR INTERVIEW, WE

WALKED TO THE BEACH, ACROSS

FROM OUR HOTEL, AND HE

NOTICED CHILDREN FOR SALE

RIGHT IN FRONT OF US.

OUR TRANSLATOR APPROACHED A

YOUNG BOY, WORKING AS A

TRANSVESTITE, AND HE AGREED

TO TELL US HOW THE SYSTEM

WORKS.

THEY COME IN THE CAR.

THEY ASK HOW MUCH IT IS.

I TELL THEM, AND THEY SAY IF

THEY WANT ME.

AND IF THEY WANT ME, THEY

TAKE ME.

Reporter: LEAH USES THE

25 TO $50 PER TRICK TO BUY

CLOTHES AND FOOD FOR HIMSELF

AND HIS MOM.

HE TOLD US HE STARTED AT AGE

14.

HIS LIFE AND PAIN WAS

CLEAR.

I DON'T LIKE IT.

I HATE IT.

I JUST DO IT BECAUSE I NEED

IT.

Reporter: BRAZIL MAY

SOON OVERTAKE THAILAND AS

THE NUMBER ONE COUNTRY IN

TRAFFICKED CHILDREN.

THE UNITED NATIONS ESTIMATES

THAT MORE THAN A QUARTER

MILLION ARE SEXUALLY

EXPLOITED HERE.

MUCH OF IT HAPPENS IN THE

NORTHEAST REGION, WHERE

CHILD SEX TOURS ARRIVE FROM

EUROPE AND THE U.S.

WE SEE KIDS START AT AGE

12, 13, IT IS A WAY FOR THEM

TO HAVE AN INCOME, TO

RECEIVE MONEY EASILY.

Reporter: AS IF THE

PROBLEM OF CHILD SEX

TRAFFICKING WASN'T BAD

ENOUGH, THE WORST MAY BE YET

TO COME.

MANY FEAR THE WORLD CUP

GAMES, TO BE HELD IN THE

STADIUM BUILT BEHIND ME,

WILL BRING A FLOOD OF

TOURISTS NOT JUST FOR

SPORTS, BUT FOR CHILDREN.

WE ARE TRYING TO FIND A

WAY TO AVOID THIS.

Reporter: HE WORKS IN

CHILD SERVICES IN THE METRO

AREA OF HAFIFI.

HIS RESEARCH SUGGESTS KIDS

HERE ARE OWNER DANGER.

WHAT WE SEE BEFORE AND

AFTER THE WORLD CUP IS

TRAUMA IN THE COMMUNITIES.

Reporter: THOSE WHO

WORK WITH YOUTH HERE BELIEVE

MORE TOURISM MEANS MORE

CHILD EXPLOITATION.

THE PUBLIC OFFICIALS AND

NON-PROFITS ARE TEAMING UP

TO RAISE AWARENESS AND TRY

TO PREVENT A DISASTER.

THE SOCIAL WORKERS ARE

VERY CONCERNED ABOUT IT, SO

THEY'RE WORKING WITH

EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS IN THE

CITY AND GIVING WITHIN IN

THE SCHOOLS.

Reporter: AND MANY IN

THIS REGION RECOGNIZE A

LONG-TERM STRATEGY IS

ESSENTIAL TO WIPE OUT A

TRAGEDY THAT IS DEEPLY

EMBEDDED IN THE CULTURE.

POOR CHILDREN HERE TYPICALLY

GROW UP IN SMALL, CROWDED

HOMES, WHERE THEY SEE

SEXUALITY THAT SHOULD BE

PRIVATE, AND OFTEN FACE

ABUSE THEMSELVES.

THEY START EARLY TO SEE

SEX IN A DISTORTED WAY, SO

IT IS EASIER TO START IN

THIS KIND OF LIFE.

Reporter: DRUG DEALERS

ALSO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF KIDS

ADDICTED TO CRACK AND OTHER

ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES.

IT IS ALSO COMMON FOR

DESPERATELY POOR PARENTS TO

ENCOURAGE THEIR CHILDREN TO

SELL THEMSELVES.

THE MOMS -- SOMETIMES

THEY PUT THEIR CHILDREN IN

THIS SITUATION BECAUSE THEY

NEED HELP.

Reporter: IN THE CASE

OF SOFIA, A 15-YEAR-OLD WE

MET, HER PARENTS SIMPLY

LOOKED THE OTHER WAY.

SOFIA SAYS SHE STOPPED

BECAUSE SHE WANTS A BETTER

LIFE.

I REALIZED IT IS NOT

GOOD.

YOU CAN GET PREGNANT AND BE

UNABLE TO GO ON WITH YOUR

STUDIES AND GET A GOOD JOB.

Reporter: THE

U.S.-BASED MINISTRY

COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL IS

IN THE SEX TRAFFICKING FIGHT

FOR

THE LONG HAUL.

COMPASSION USES CHILD

SPONSORSHIPS TO FUND

MINISTE MINISTERIES ACROSS

THE NATION.

PASSION PARTNERS WITH LOCAL

CHURCHES TO TAKE CARE OF

CHILDREN'S PHYSICAL NEEDS.

AND IT EMPHASIZES ACADEMICS,

INCLUDING A SPECIAL

CURRICULUM THAT TARGETS

SPECIAL ABUSE.

AND COMPASSION EMPHASIZES

DECISION-MAKING FOR A

LIFETIME.

IT IS A TOUGH CONCEPT FOR SO

MANY CHILDREN, WHO'S

FAMILIES DESPERATELY NEED

HELP NOW.

BUT PREVENTION, VIA

ONE-CHILD SPONSESHIPS MAY BE

THE BEST WAY.

I BELIEVE THE BEST WAY TO

COMBAT EXPLOITATION IS THE

PREVENTION WE'RE DOING IN

PARTNERSHIP WITH

COMPASSION.

Reporter: AND FOR THAT

REASON, TUAREZ HAS BECOME A

REGULAR AT THIS PROJECT.

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS WITH

KIDS IN THE HOPES OF HELPING

THEM TO REALIZE THEIR

DREAMS.

FOR THESE CHILDREN, IT IS

NOT TOO LATE.

AND IT MAY NOT BE TOO LATE

FOR LEAH.

AFTER OUR INTERVIEW, WE

PRAYED FOR HIM AND FOR HIS

DREAMS.

I WOULD LIKE TO GET

MARRIED WITH SOMEONE I'M IN

LOVE WITH AND QUIT DOING

WHAT I DO.

Reporter: LEAH TOLD US

HE WOULD LIKE TO BECOME A

NURSE, A TRUE MIRACLE,

PERHAPS, THAT ONE CHILD IN

SO MUCH PAIN WOULD DREAM OF

HELPING OTHERS.

REPORTING IN HAFIFI, BRAZIL,

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS

HEARTBREAKING, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

IT HAPPENS ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

WE HAVE SO MANY CHILDREN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TO BRAZIL,

AND SOME OF THESE ASIAN

COUNTRIES WHERE THERE IS

SUCH POVERTY,

HEART-WRENCHING POVERTY.

I DON'T THINK I'LL FORGET

THE CHILD I MET IN AN

ORPHANAGE WHEN I WAS IN

THAILAND, WHO ESCAPED FROM

BEING SOLD INTO SEX SLAVERY

IN BANGKOK.

AND THE WORD WAS FOR A

REFRIGERATOR OR A COLORED

TELEVISION SET, THAT THE

PARENTS WOULD SELL THEIR

DAUGHTER TO THESE SEX

TRAFFICKERS TO BE ABUSED AND

MISTREATED AND FILLED WITH

DISEASE AND WHO KNOWS WHAT

ELSE WOULD GO ON.

THEIR LIVES RUINED.

NO HOPE.

SO, FOLKS, WE NEED TO DO

SOMETHING.

REGENT UNIVERSITY IS DOING

SOMETHING ABOUT SEX

TRAFFICKING.

THEY HAVE COURSES AND A

PROGRAM ABOUT IT --

Terry: WE'RE ACTUALLY

STARTING A NEW CAMPAIGN WITH

THEY.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," CBN

INTERNATIONAL AND REGENT

UNIVERSITY, AND IT'S GOING

TO BE CALLED THE BLUE FLAG

CAMPAIGN.

AND BRAZIL IS THE FIRST

FOCUS BECAUSE OF THE WORLD

CUP, AND THAT IS FOLLOWED

WITH THE OLYMPICS.

WE'RE WORKING WITH PEOPLE IN

POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY IN

CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA.

REGENT WILL HAVE A WHOLE

CURRICULUM FOR PEOPLE WHO

WANT TO BE A PART OF THIS.

WE HOPE TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, NOT JUST IN

BRAZIL, BUT THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD.

THIS HAS BECOME A HUGE

PROBLEM.

Pat: IT IS

HEARTBREAKING.

IN ISAIAH 58, WHICH IS THE

MANDATE FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING," YOU DELIVER THOSE

FROM CAPTIVITY.

YOU BREAK THE BONDS OF

OPPRESSION AND SET THE

CAPTIVES FREE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE SLAVES,

THEY'RE CAPTIVES, AND THEY

NEED TO BE FREED.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THAT'S

PART OF WHAT YOU'RE DOING,

AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR

HELP.

AND PRAYERS.

LET'S DO WHAT WE CAN FOR

THESE PRECIOUS CHILDREN.

THEY'RE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF

GOD.

WE NEED TO GLORIFY THAT FACT

AND NOT DESTROY IT.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

TELEVISION EVENT THOUSANDS

OF YEARS IN THE MAKING.

WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU A

SNEAK PEEK AT THE EPIC MINI

SERIES, "THE BIBLE."

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: FOR NEARLY 10

YEARS AND 200 EPISODES,

ACTRESS ROMA DOWNING STARRED

IN THE TV MINI SERIES -- IT

WAS A SERIES, IT WASN'T A

MINI SERIES -- CALLED

"TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL."

VERY, VERY POPULAR.

HER HUSBAND, MARK BARNETT,

IS A REALITY TV PRODUCER.

HE IS BEHIND "SURVIVOR,"

"THE APPRENTICE," "THE

VOICE," AND "SHARK TANK."

ON SUNDAY, THESE TWO WILL

COME TOGETHER TO UNVEIL WHAT

THEY ARE CALLING THEIR MOST

IMPORTANT PROJECT.

IT'S "THE BIBLE."

TAKE A LOOK.

*

REMEMBER ME.

BY DOING THIS, I'M GOING TO

THE FATHER, BUT I WILL

ALWAYS BE WITH YOU.

Reporter: HOLLYWOOD

COUPLE MARK BARNETT AND ROMA

DOWNING HAVE JOINED FORCES

WITH THE HISTORY CHANNEL TO

CREATE AN EPIC 10-HOUR MINI

SERIES CALLED "THE BIBLE."

WHEN YOU LOOK AT A PROJECT

OF THIS MAGNITUDE, HOW DO

YOU BOIL IT DOWN TO 10

HOURS.

IT TOOK US MANY YEARS,

AND WE GOT THE ADVICE OF

MANY THE THEOLOGICS.

GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

FROM THE MOMENT ADAM AND

EVE FELL FROM GRACE, WE HAVE

BEEN A PEOPLE WANTING TO GET

BACK IN CONNECTION WITH

GOD.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE THEMES

THAT WE FELT WE REALLY

WANTED TO SEE, THROUGH THOSE

OLD TESTAMENT CHARACTERS.

WE SEE EACH OF THEM

ATTEMPTING CONNECTION AND

FAILING.

ATTEMPTING CONNECTION AND

FAILING.

AND GOD SO LOVED US THAT HE

SENDS JESUS FOR US.

AND OUR NEW TESTAMENT

NARRATIVE BEGINS WITH THE

BIRTH OF JESUS, WHO COMES

AND BRINGS US HOME.

AND SO THAT WAS THE

CONNECTIVE LOVE STORY THAT

WE WANTED TO TELL.

WE ONLY HAD 10 HOURS, SO WE

HAD TO CONVINCE THE

STORIES.

IT ENDED UP REALLY IT IS

MORE OF AN DUCTION

INTRODUCTION TO THE BIBLE.

Reporter: IN TACKLING A

PRODUCTION OF THIS

MAGNITUDE, GREAT CARE WAS

TAKEN TO MAKE THE FINISHED

PRODUCT LOOK AND FEEL

AUTHENTIC.

WE WENT ABOUT THREE OR

FOUR HOURS DRIVE DOWN TO THE

ATLAS MOUNTAINS TO THE EDGE

OF THE SAHARA, AND WE CHOSE

THIS LOCATION BECAUSE IT

ALLOWED US TO ACHIEVE THE

BEAUTIFUL BIBLICAL

LANDSCAPE.

IT HAS REPLACED SOME OF

THE EPIC KAZBARS, WHICH

LOOKED LIKE THEY BELONGED,

AND PROBABLY DO BELONG, TO

2,000 YEARS AGO.

MOSES.

WE WANT TO MAKE THE BIBLE

COME TO LIFE WITH FRESH

VISUAL IMAGERY FOR THIS

GENERATION.

SO WE GATHERED TO US THE

BEST IN THE BUSINESS.

WE HAVE THE BEST, AN

OSCAR-WINNING TEAM WHO

CREATED THE SPECIAL EFFECTS

FOR GLADIATOR.

Reporter: A PORTUGUESE

ACTOR PLAYS THE ROLE OF

JESUS CHRIST.

WHEN YOU WERE APPROACHED

ABOUT DOING THIS ROLE AS A

PERFORMER, AS AN ACTOR, WHAT

WENT THROUGH YOUR MIND?

I THINK THE FIRST THOUGHT

WAS, I CAN'T DO IT.

HONESTLY.

IT IS LIKE THIS IS TOO

MUCH.

YOU WILL ALL FALL AWAY.

WE'RE NOT JUST TELLING A

STORY.

WE'RE TRYING TO TOUCH

PEOPLE'S HEARTS.

WE'RE TELLING A STORY

THAT PEOPLE LIVE BY.

I GREW UP KNOWING THE

BIBLE.

I GREW UP BELIEVING IN JESUS

CHRIST.

SO WITH THE FACT THAT MY OWN

FAITH AND MY OWN BELIEFS,

GETTING INVOLVED IT'S LIKE

HOW CAN I DO SOMEONE I KNOW

SO WELL.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

SHOULD WE GO TO WHAT PEOPLE

KNOW ABOUT, OR SHARING YOUR

OWN EXPERIENCES.

I THINK I TRY TO DO IT

BOTH.

Reporter: IN THEIR

YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL WORK IN

HOLLYWOOD, MARK AND ROMA SAY

THIS PROJECT IS ONE OF THE

MOST POWERFUL PROJECTS

THEY'VE EVER WORKED WITH.

IT IS HUMAN, IT IS

CONNECTIVE, AND IT IS

BEAUTIFUL.

THROUGH THE WHOLE THING IS

THIS HEART BEAT OF FAITH,

THE HEART BEAT OF GOD'S

LOVE.

THE PROJECT WAS MADE TO

GLORIFY GOD.

Pat: THAT IS SO

EXCITING.

THEY ARE SO TALENTED.

MARK BERNETT IS

EXTRAORDINARILY TALENTED,

AND SO IS ROMA DOWNING.

Terry: AND THIS LOOKS

LIKE IT IS GOING TO BE AN

AMAZING MIN SERIES.

IT DEBUTS THIS SUNDAY NIGHT

ON THE HISTORY CHANNEL.

AND IT WILL BE EVERY SUNDAY,

WITH THE FINALE ON EASTER.

THEY HAVE RELEASED SEVERAL

BOOKS, THE FIRST, "THE STORY

OF GOD," IS A NOVEL.

AND THE THIRD IS THIS

100-DAY DAILY DEVOTION BASED

ON THE MINI SERIES.

YOU CAN GO TO cbn.com AND

TAKE A LOOK.

THE HOPE OF THIS IS IT WILL

DRIVE PEOPLE TO GO BACK TO

THE WORD.

THE BIBLE IS AN AMAZING

STORY OF, AS ROMA SAYS SO

CLEARLY, GOD REACHING OUT

AND COMING FOR

US.

Pat: IT TOUCHES THE

LIVES OF EVERYBODY.

OUR HATS OFF TO THE HISTORY

CHANNEL.

THEY HAVE SCORED A TRIUMPH,

AND I HOPE THERE IS A HUGE

AUDIENCE FOR IT.

Terry: SOMETHING NOT TO

BE MISSED.

THINK YOU KNOW WHAT IT TAKES

TO BE REALLY GREAT?

STAY TUNED, BECAUSE PAT

SHOWS HOW YOU CAN REACH TRUE

GREATNESS IN A SEGMENT FROM

"THE SECRET KINGDOM."

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Wendy: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

ARKANSAS GOVERNOR MIKE BEBE

SIGNED INTO LAW A BILL

PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF

MOTHERS WHO ARE FORCED TO

DEFEND THE LIVES OF THEIR

UNBORN CHILDREN.

IT IS CALLED "THE PREGNANT

WOMAN'S PROTECTION ACT."

THE MEASURE PASSED THE STATE

HOUSE AND THE SENATE

UNANIMOUSLY.

THE GROUP AMERICANS UNITED

FOR LIFE IS BEHIND THE NEW

LEGISLATION.

A SPOKESPERSON SAYS IT WAS

DRAFTED IN RESPONSE TO THE

GROWING PROBLEM OF

PREGNANCY-RELATED VIOLENCE

AGAINST WOMEN.

STUDIES SHOW A PREGNANT

WOMAN IS MORE LIKELY TO BE A

VICTIM OF HOMICIDE THAN TO

DIE OF ANY OTHER CAUSE.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

SURVIVED A SANDY VICTIM AND

CANCER SURVIVOR WITH AN

EXTREME BLESSING HOME

MAKEOVER.

BARBARA LOST EVERYTHING WHEN

HURRICANE SANDY HIT HER

HOME.

BUT WITH THE HELP OF 100

VOLUNTEERS, "OPERATION

BLESSING" GAVE BARBARA A BIG

SURPRISE.

THEY REBUILT HER HOME,

COMPLETE WITH NEW DRYWALL,

FLOORS, PAINT, APPLIANCES

AND EVEN FURNITURE.

THE HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF

EFFORTS FROM PROVIDED MORE

THAN 12,000 HOT MEALS, AND

COORDINATED OVER 1500

VOLUNTEERS FOR CLEANUP AND

DEBRIS REMOVAL.

AND YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

BY GOING TO THEIR WEBSITE

AT OB.ORG.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WHAT MAKES

SOMEONE TRULY GREAT?

IT MAY NOT BE WHAT YOU

THINK.

IN FACT, TRUE GREATNESS IS

COUNTER-INTUITIVE, AS PAT

EXPLAINS IN THIS SEGMENT

FROM "THE SECRET KINGDOM."

Pat: GREATNESS -- WHAT

IS GREATNESS?

THERE WAS A MAN IN RUSSIA

WHO WAS THE GREAT KING.

HE WAS CALLED PETER THE

GREAT.

HE IS THE ONE THAT WESTERN

WESTERNIZED RUSSIA.

WAS HE REALLY GREAT?

THERE WAS A MASADONIAN

GENERAL, ONE OF THE SMARTEST

GENERALS THAT EVER LIVED.

HE WAS KNOWN AS ALEXANDER

THE GREAT.

HE DRANK HIMSELF TO DEATH

WHEN HE WAS MAYBE 31 OR 32

YEARS OLD.

WAS HE GREAT?

WE HAD A BOXER NAMED

MUHAMMAD ALI, WHO SAID I

FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERFLY AND

STING LIKE A BEE.

HE NOW HAS PARKINSON'S.

WAS HE REALLY THE GREATEST?

NAPOLEON THE GREAT?

THEY WEREN'T GREAT.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON WHO

HAS EVER REALLY BEEN GREAT,

AND HIS NAME IS JESUS.

AND HE TOLD US THE SECRET OF

GREATNESS.

HIS DISCIPLES WERE ARGUING

AMONG THEMSELVES AS TO WHO

WAS THE GREATEST.

THEY WERE FIGHTING.

THEY SAY, WHAT IF YOU HAD A

COUPLE OF KIDS SQUABBLING

ABOUT WHO WAS THE BEST

BASKETBALL PLAYER, WHETHER

IT WAS LEBRON JAMES OR

MICHAEL JORDAN, AND THEY

WERE FIGHTING EACH OTHER

OVER WHO WAS THE GREATEST.

HIS DISCIPLES WERE FIGHTING

AMONG WHO WAS THE GREATEST.

AND HE TOOK A CHILD AND SET

HIM IN THE MIDST AND SAID,

YOU SEE THIS LITTLE CHILD.

HE THAT BECOMES LIKE A

LITTLE CHILD, HE'LL BE GREAT

IN THE KINGDOM.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT A LITTLE

CHILD THAT MAKES HIM GREAT?

THING ABOUT A CHILD THAT IS

SO INTERESTING IS HIS EARS

ARE ALWAYS OPEN.

HE IS ALWAYS ASKING

QUESTIONS.

HE HAS AN INQUIRING MIND.

WHY IS THE GRASS GREEN?

WHY IS THE SUN UP, DADDY?

WHY DO THOSE DOGS WALK THAT

WAY INSTEAD OF THE OTHER

WAY, DADDY?

AND THEY KEEP ASKING.

THEY SAY THAT A CHILD

BETWEEN THE AGE OF 4 AND 5

WILL LEARN MORE THAN AN

OLDER CHILD WILL LEARN

DURING FOUR YEARS OF

COLLEGE.

THEIR MINDS ARE OPEN TO

LISTEN.

AND THE OTHER THING ABOUT A

CHILD IS THEY'RE TRUSTING.

A CHILD HAS TO RELY ON HIS

MOTHER AND FATHER TO FEED

HIM, CLOTHE HIM, HOUSE HIM.

THEY TAKE IT FOR GRANTED

THAT MOMMY AND DADDY ARE

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF ME.

YOU WOULD HATE TO HAVE A

CHILD ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT

WHETHER HE WAS GOING TO GET

THE NEXT MEAL.

THERE ARE SOME IN THE THIRD

WORLD THAT ARE THAT WAY, BUT

CERTAINLY HERE IN AMERICA,

IN THE AVERAGE FAMILY,

CHILDREN RELY ON THROUGH

FAMILIES.

CERTAINLY A BABY DOES.

A BABY DOESN'T SIT AROUND

HAVING A DISCUSSION WITH HIS

FELLOWS, DO YOU THINK OUR

FOLKS ARE GOING TO FEED US

TODAY?

HE JUST YELLS AND HE GETS A

BOTTLE.

THEY EXPECT IT BECAUSE

THEY'RE TRUSTING.

THAT'S WHAT GOD SAYS I WANT,

THOSE WHO ARE TRUSTING IN

ME, WHO WILL RELY ON ME AS

THE SOURCE OF THEIR

BLESSING.

NOW, JESUS ALSO EXPANDED ON

THIS CONCEPT OF GREATNESS.

HE SAID, THE KINGS OF THIS

EARTH

EXALT THEMSELVES, AND

THEN CALL THEM BENEFACTORS.

THEY EXALT THEMSELVES FOR

GREATNESS.

BUT HE SAID, IT'S NOT

SUPPOSED TO BE THAT WAY WITH

YOU.

HE THAT IS THE LEAST AMONG

YOU, LET HIM BE THE GREATEST

OF ALL.

HE THAT IS THE SLAVE OF

OTHERS, HE SAID, I AM SON OF

GOD, YET I'M WITH YOU AS ONE

THAT SERVES.

AND YOU RECALL THOSE DAYS

BEFORE HE IS CRUCIFIED, WHEN

THEY WERE IN THE UPPER ROOM,

AND HE TOOK A BASIN AND HE

KNELT DOWN AND HE BEGAN TO

WASH THE FEET OF HIS

DISCIPLES.

AND HE SAYS, IF I'M YOUR

MASTER AND LORD, YOU SEE

WHAT I'M DOING.

YOU SHOULD WASH THE FEET OF

YOUR OTHER DISCIPLES.

I AM TAKING THE ROLE OF THE

SLAVE.

HE THAT IS THE GREATEST, IS

THE BOND SLAVE OF ALL.

THAT SOUNDS KIND OF CRAZY.

MOST PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO BE

SERVANTS.

THEY DON'T WANT TO BE

SERVANTS.

WHO WANTS TO BE IN THE ROLE

OF A SERVANT?

A LOT OF FOLKS, CERTAINLY

100 YEARS AGO, OUR

AFRICAN-AMERICAN FRIENDS

WERE PRETTY MUCH CONFINED TO

MENIAL TASKS IN THE

KITCHEN.

THEY DON'T WANT THAT, AND I

DON'T BLAME THEM.

THEY WANT TO GET EDUCATED.

THEY WANT TO SIT IN AN

EXECUTIVE SUITE.

THEY WANT TO BE C.E.O.s

AND LEADERS AND GENERALS,

AND THEY ARE.

BUT WHEN ARE YOU REALLY

GREAT?

YOU'RE GREAT WHEN YOU ARE A

SERVANT.

NOW, YOU AND I DON'T WANT TO

BE SERVANTS, DO WE?

WELL, THINK OF THE GREATEST

INVENTOR.

WHO WOULD YOU SAY IS THE

GREATEST INVENTOR.

WOULD SAY THOMAS EDISON,

PROBABLY.

WHY IS HE GREAT?

HE IS GREAT BECAUSE HE

SERVED THE MOST PEOPLE.

YOU WOULD THINK ABOUT HENRY

FORD.

HE WAS A GREATEST

INDUSTRIALIST.

HE HAD HIS FLAWS, BUT HE WAS

A GREAT INDUSTRIALIST.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE SERVED PEOPLE

WITH CHEAP TRANSPORTATION.

AND THE MORE PEOPLE HE

SERVED, THE GREATER HE WAS.

SO, ALSO, PUBLIC SERVANTS

WHO HONESTLY FEEL THAT THEIR

JOB IS TO SERVE THE PUBLIC.

IF WE WANT TO BE GREAT --

AND I'LL TELL YOU, IF THE

CHURCH WANTS TO SHOW ITSELF

STRONG IN A SINFUL WORLD,

THE BEST WAY WE CAN DO IT IS

TO SERVE THE POOR AND THE

NEEDY.

IF WE GO

OUT AND TAKE THE

ROLE OF A SERVANT AND WE

SERVE OTHERS -- AND BUSINESS

SCHOOLS ARE TEACHING WHAT

THEY CALL SERVANT

LEADERSHIP.

THAT IS ONE OF THE PROBLEMS

WITH THE AMERICAN AUTOMOBILE

MANUFACTURERS, THE GUYS EN

THE FRONT OFFICE, THE BIG

SHOTS, WOULDN'T LISTEN TO

THE WORKERS.

THEY KNEW IT ALL.

THEY WERE THE PROS, THEY

WERE THE EXPERTS.

DON'T TELL ME HOW TO RUN OUR

AUTOMOBILE COMPANY, I'VE

BEEN HERE FOR 30 YEARS.

IT WAS TRAGIC, WASN'T IT?

GENERAL MOTORS WENT

BANKRUPT, AND WE'VE LOST OUR

PLACE AMONG THE NATIONS AND

AMONG THE INDUSTRIAL TITANS

OF THE WORLD BECAUSE OUR

LEADERS WOULDN'T LISTEN.

THEY WOULDN'T LISTEN.

THEY WERE TOO PROUD.

AND ALONG WITH THIS COMES

HUMILITY BECAUSE A CHILD IS

HUMBLE.

A LITTLE CHILD IS HUMBLE.

AND THE LORD SAID, EXCEPT

YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF, AND

BECOME LIKE A LITTLE CHILD,

YOU CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM

OF GOD.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

BEING HUMBLE AND LISTENING

TO SOMEBODY ELSE.

TEACH ME.

THE REALLY SMART PEOPLE, THE

ONES WHO REALLY ARE THE

LEADERS IN INDUSTRY, ARE THE

ONES WHO ARE ALWAYS LEARNING

AND SAYING TEACH ME.

ARE THERE ANY NEW

TECHNIQUES?

TELL ME.

HOW DO YOU DO IT?

TELL ME THE NEW WAY.

HOW DOES IT GO?

AND THE ONES WHO ARE

OSSIFIED, THEY WILL BE

EXTINCT.

BUT GOD IS SAYING TO US, IF

YOU WANT TO BE A LEADER,

SERVE.

AND IF YOU WANT TO BE THE

GREATEST, YOU BE THE BOND

SLAVE OF ALL.

AND YOU LOOK BACK TO JESUS.

WHAT DID HE DO?

HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR

EVERYONE.

HE IS THE GREATEST WHOEVER

LIVED BECAUSE HE SERVED MORE

PEOPLE.

HE SERVED THE GENERATIONS

YET TO BE BORN.

HE SERVED HIS

CONTEMPORARIES.

HE SERVED EVERYBODY.

HIS DEATH WON A PLACE TO

HEAVEN FOR ALL OF US.

THAT'S WHY HE IS THE

GREATEST.

NOT SOME GENERAL, NOT SOME

KING, NOT SOME PRIZE

FIGHTER.

BUT JESUS CHRIST.

AND HE TOLD US HOW WE CAN

REACH GREATNESS, AND THERE

IS NO OTHER WAY THAN TO HAVE

A SERVANT'S HEART.

[APPLAUSE]

Terry: I LOVE THIS

SERIES.

IT IS RICH WITH WISDOM FROM

THE BIBLE.

WE'VE BEEN PLAYING "SECRET

KINGDOM" TEACHINGS ALL WEEK

AND THE RESPONSE HAS BEEN

TREMENDOUS.

CATHY SAYS, "I SAW PAT TALK

ABOUT THE LAW OF UNITY FROM

THE SECRET KINGDOM.

I WANT TO THANK YOU SO MUCH

BECAUSE I'M STRUGGLING WITH

DISUNITY AT MY WORKPLACE.

I WAS PLANNING ON TALKING

WITH MY MANAGERS, BUT I

REALLY DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO GO

ABOUT IT.

GOD BROUGHT YOU AND YOUR

PROGRAM ON AT THE RIGHT

TIME.

NOW I KNOW WHAT TO DO AND

WHAT TO TALK ABOUT.

I'M SO GRATEFUL.

YOU PUT PEACE IN MY HEART."

WE WANT ALL OF YOU TO KNOW

YOU CAN ALWAYS GO TO OUR

WEBSITE FOR MORE TEACHINGS

OF "THE SECRET KINGDOM."

GO TO cbn.com, AND GO TO

"I SAW IT ON THE "THE 700

CLUB" BOX," AND YOU'LL FIND

IT THERE.

ALEXIS SAYS, "HOW CAN A TRUE

SERVANT REALLY LEAD.

THERE MAY COME A TIME WHEN

TWO PEOPLE HAVE TWO VERY

DIFFERENT OPINIONS ABOUT HOW

TO APPROACH A TOPIC.

HOW CAN A LEADER SERVE

BOTH?"

STAY TUNED FOR A SPECIAL

EDITION OF "BRING IT ON."

THAT'S NEXT.

*

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

Terry: WE LOVE TO

INTERACT WITH YOU, AND WE

WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME TO

ANSWER SOME OF THE QUESTIONS

YOU SUBMITTED TO US.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM ALEXIS.

"PAT, I AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT

THE LAW OF GREATNESS.

I THINK HUMILITY AND HAVING

A SERVANT'S HEART ARE

QUALITIES SOARLY LACKING IN

TODAY'S AGE, ESPECIALLY IN

WASHINGTON.

BUT HOW CAN A TRUE SERVANT

REALLY LEAD.

THERE MAY COME A TIME WHEN

TWO PEOPLE HAVE VERY

DIFFERENT OPINIONS ABOUT HOW

TO APPROACH A TOPIC.

HOW IS A LEADER EXPECTED TO

MAKE A DECISION WHEN HE HAS

AN EITHER/OR DECISION?"

Pat: YOU'RE JOB IS TO

SERVE AND TO MAKE A BETTER

SITUATION FOR YOUR COMPANY,

FOR YOUR STATE, FOR YOUR

NATION.

AND THAT'S YOUR HEART.

AND PEOPLE MIGHT DISAGREE

WITH YOU, BUT JESUS CHRIST

WAS A LEADER.

AND HE SPOKE WHAT'S TO BE

DONE.

AND HE OBVIOUSLY WAS THERE.

HE LOVED THE PEOPLE, AND AS

A LEADER, YOU LOVE THE

PEOPLE.

IF SOMEBODY DISAGREES WITH

YOU, YOU HEAR THEIR POINT OF

VIEW.

YOU LISTEN PRESPECTFULLY TO

WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY, AND

YOU LISTEN TO BOTH SIDES.

AND THEY KNOW THAT YOU HAVE

TO MAKE A DECISION.

AND THEY NEED TO RESPECT

YOUR DECISION IF YOU ARE A

LEADER.

AND THE DECISION YOU MAKE IS

YOU SAY, I HOPE YOU ALL

AGREE, BUT I DO BELIEVE THIS

IS THE BEST COURSE.

WE'VE LISTENED TO ALL OF THE

ARGUMENTS, AND WE HAVE TO

MAKE A DECISION.

BUT YOU DO IT HUMBLY.

YOU DON'T JUST SAY, I'M THE

BOSS, YOU DO WHAT I SAY

WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.

IT IS YOUR ATTITUDE.

I LOVE YOU, I WANT TO DO

WHAT'S BEST, AND HERE IS

WHAT I THINK IS RIGHT.

AND THEN EVERYBODY NEEDS TO

FALL IN LINE.

THAT'S LEADERSHIP.

IT'S LOVE.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

TOMMY.

TOMMY SAYS, 888-706-876, "I

REALLY WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

I BELIEVE I NEED TO HAVE A

SERVANT'S HEART IN ORDER TO

DO THAT.

I FEEL AS IF MY EMOTIONS ARE

INFLUX.

I TRULY DO WANT TO SERVE,

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I

REALIZE MY MOTIVATION FOR

SERVING IS TIED INTO MY

FEELINGS FOR GREATNESS.

HOW DO I RECONCILE THESE

FEELINGS?"

Pat: DON'T SPEND TOO

MUCH TIME IN INT

INTROINSPECTION.

JUST GO OUT THERE AND HELP

PEOPLE.

THESE PEOPLE NEED FOOD.

GET OUT AND FEED PEOPLE.

LOOKING AT MY PULSE --

FORGET ALL OF THAT.

FOCUS ON THE NEED.

HOW CAN I MEET THE NEED?

WHAT CAN I DO TO SERVE THESE

PEOPLE, PERIOD.

Terry: THERE ARE

WONDERFUL SCRIPTURES WHERE

YOU ARE ASKING GOD TO HELP

YOU.

CREATE IN ME A PURE HEART.

GOD DOES FOR FOR US.

Pat: YOU CAN DO THAT.

BUT, AGAIN, TERRY, THIS

INTROSPECTION, YOU CAN SPEND

ALL OF YOUR TIME, AM MY

MOTIVES RIGHT?

COME ON.

WHO CARES WHAT YOUR MOTIVE

IS.

THE MOTIVE IS THAT YOU'VE

GOT TO DO IS LET'S GET THE

JOB DONE.

HERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE

SUFFERING; LET'S HELP THEM.

Terry: SHARON SAYS, "I

JUST STARTED WATCHING YOUR

SHOW AND I LOVE IT.

I LOST ONE OF MY SONS WHEN

HE WAS 19 YEARS OLD.

FOUR MONTHS LATER, MY

HUSBAND OF 22 YEARS PASSED

AWAY.

JESUS HAS BEEN MY ROCK

THROUGH THIS, AND HE IS MY

HIGHEST PRIORITY IN MY

LIFE.

I HAVE A BEAUTIFUL STATUE OF

JESUS CARRYING HIS CROSS.

I KEEP IT IN FRONT OF ME IN

FULL SIGHT.

YOU SAID WE'RE NEVER TO

WORSHIP MAN-MADE IMAGES, AND

I AGREE, BUT SINCE THEN I'VE

BEEN DEEPLY TROUBLED ABOUT

MY STATUE.

I DON'T BOW DOWN OR WORSHIP

IT, BUT IT BRINGS ME SUCH

STRENGTH NOW THAT I'M A

WIDOW AND ALONE.

IS THIS CONSIDERED AN

IDOL?"

Pat: IT DEPENDS ON WHAT

YOU HAVE DONE IN YOUR LIFE.

WE'VE GOT A PICTURE ON THE

OTHER SIDE OF THE STUDIO OF

JESUS.

Terry: SURE.

THERE ARE MANY SCULPTURES

THAT HAVE BEEN DONE BY

WONDERFUL ARTISTS.

Pat: SURE.

AND YOU GO INTO SAINT

PETER'S AND THERE ARE PEOPLE

WHO ARE RUBBING THE FEET OF

SOME STATUE OF A SAINT,

THINKING IT IS GOING TO

BRING THEM BLESSING.

THAT IS IDOLATRY.

BUT IF YOU SAY I WANT TO

FOLLOW THIS ONE.

HE DID IT FOR ME AND I LOVE

HIM FOR IT.

THAT IS NOT IDOLATRY.

I DON'T CONSIDER THAT

IDOLATRY.

Terry: DAVID SAYS,

888-706-876, "WE'RE GIVING

APPROXIMATELY 18% OF OUR

INCOME.

WE'RE GIVING TO OUR LOCAL

CHURCH, BUT ONLY ABOUT 8% TO

9%.

IS IT NECESSARY TO UP THE

CHURCH TO 10% TO CONSIDER

WE'RE TITHERS.

WE'RE NOT CONTRIBUTING 10%

TO ANY ONE ORGANIZATION.

OR AM I OVERTHINKING THIS?"

Pat: YES, YOU'RE

OVERTHINKING THIS.

GOD IS NOT A PHILADELPHIA

LAWYER OR AN ACCOUNTANT.

COME ON.

Terry: YOU'RE RIGHT.

Pat: WE DIMINISH THE

CREATOR.

HE IS A GREAT GOD.

AND HE SAYS, I LOVE YOU AND

OUT OF THAT WHICH I GIVEN,

YOU GIVE BACK.

AND THE 10th IS ONLY

ONE -- THERE WERE THREE

TITHES IF YOU LOOK IN THE

OLD TESTAMENT.

SO THE STANDARD IS 30%.

THE GOVERNMENT LET'S YOU

GIVE 50%.

IT JUST DEPENDS.

TITHES AND OFFERINGS OUT OF

YOUR INNER BEING, BUT IT

DOESN'T HAVE TO BE TO A

QUOTE CHURCH.

I KNOW THERE SOME THAT THINK

THAT TITHE BELONGS TO THE

CHURCH.

NO IT DOESN'T.

IT BELONGS TO GOD.

IF IT IS A MINISTRY THAT

HELPS HUMANITARIANS --

YOU'RE GIVING TO GOD.

IT IS WHAT IS IN YOUR

HEART.

I THINK WE HAVE GOT TO GET

OUT OF THIS -- YOU KNOW --

Terry: THERE IS

SOMETHING IN US THAT SO

WANTS TO PLEASE, THAT WE

WANT A FORMULA.

Pat: I KNOW.

BUT HE DOESN'T WANT US TO

HAVE FORMULAS.

HE WANTS US TO BE FREE.

FREEDOM!

Terry: OKAY, THIS IS

RACHEL WHO SAYS, "WHY DOES

GOD HEAL SOME AND NOT

OTHERS.

DOES THE PHRASE NO RESPECTER

OF PERSONS APPLY HERE.

HOW CAN WE SAY GOD WILL DO

SOMETHING WHEN WE DON'T KNOW

FOR CERTAIN WHAT HE'LL DO?"

Pat: WHY DO SOME PEOPLE

GET HEALED AND SOME DON'T?

WHAT'S IN THEIR HEART?

THEY TALK ABOUT HOLY

INVALIDS, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THEIR

HEART.

IS THERE RESENTMENT WAY DOWN

DEEP INSIDE.

IS THERE LACK OF FAITH DEEP

INSIDE?

MAYBE THEIR TIME HASN'T

QUITE COME.

GOD KNOWS ALL THESE THINGS,

AND HE HASN'T REVEALED THEM

ALL TO US.

WHEN JESUS WAS HERE ON

EARTH, HE KNEW IF SOMETHING

WAS DEMONS.

HE KNEW IF SOMETHING WAS

SIN.

AND HE KNEW IF SOMETHING WAS

JUST DISEASE.

AND HE WAS ABLE TO DEAL WITH

ALL OF THOSE PROBLEMS AND

EVERYBODY GOT HEALED.

THERE WAS NO PERSON WHO CAME

TO JESUS THAT WASN'T

HEALED.

THEY KNOW.

WE DON'T KNOW.

WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS

DARKLY.

Terry: EVEN GOD'S

BIGGER PLAN, I THINK OF THE

STORY OF JIM ELLIOT, AND

SOMETIMES WE SEE DEATH

DIFFERENTLY THAN GOD DOES.

AND THAT CREATED SUCH A

BROAD SPREADING OF THE

GOSPEL.

Pat: AND TO US WHAT WAS

TRAGEDY WAS A GLORIOUS

TRANSFORMATION OF FAITH.

HE GOT KILLED.

IS THAT BAD?

NOT REALLY.

HE IS WITH THE LORD.

IT'S FRIDAY.

I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT

WEEKEND.

Terry: THANK YOU.

YOU, TOO.

RIDE THAT HORSE.

Pat: I'M GOING TO RIDE

THAT HORSE IN ABOUT AN HOUR

OR TWO.

ON MONDAY, THE INCREDIBLE

SURVIVAL STORY OF A CLIMBER

WHO WENT BLIND ON MOUNTAIN

EVEREST, AND LOST HIS

OXYGEN, AND LIVED TO TELL

THE TALE.

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.
