IMPACT MY LIFE AT A CERTAINPOINT AND I ABSOLUTELY DO, IBELIEVE THAT THIS IS NOT THEEND. THERE IS A EACH AND

THERE IS A HELL. AMEN. I REMEMBER AS A YOUNGKID, YOU KNOW, I SHARED IT

BEFORE. COME WALK THEHILLS OF CALVARY WHEREONCE MY SAVIOR DIED. COMEVIEW THE PLACE OF SADNESS

WHERE HE WAS CRUCIFIED.AFTER THE TERRIBLE TRAIL OFAGONY HAD LAST PAST, WESTILL COULDN'T FIND HIM FOR

AT REST, WORK, AND IN PLAY.AMEN. THAT WAS MY LITTLEEASTER SPEECH AT 7 YEARSOLD.

AMEN, BRIAN, WOW. YOU KNOW, WE'RE RIGHT INTHE MIDDLE OF AN INCREDIBLEWEEK AS WE'RE DISCUSSING

THE ALWAYS INTERESTINGTOPIC OF THE AFTERLIFE. WE'VE BEEN SHARINGSTORIES OF ORDINARY PEOPLE

WHO HAVE DIED AND COMEBACK TO LIFE. THESE VIVIDACCOUNTS OF WHAT HAPPENEDAND WHAT THEY SAW BEFORE

THEY CAME BACK WILL AMAZEEVEN THE GREATEST SKEPTICS.WE HAVE TWO MOREPOWERFUL STORIES FOR YOU

TODAY. YOU KNOW WHAT? WE'LLSELL YOU THE SEAT BUTYOU'LL ONLY NEED THE EDGE.

TONY DAVIS WAS SHOTMULTIPLE TIMES ON THESTREET CORNER AND DIED ONTHE SCENE. BUT GOD SENT HIM

BACK TO TAKE CARE OF SOMEUNFINISHED BUSINESS. TONY'SSTORY IS PROOF THAT GOD HASUS ALL HERE FOR A REASON.

AND WE'VE HEARD THESAYING SCARED AS HELL.WELL CARL ANIONS' SHORTTIME IN HELL WAS ENOUGH TO

SCARE HIM STRAIGHT. CARLHAS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGEFOR ANYONE WHO DOUBTSWHETHER HELL IS REAL.

AND LAURA-LYNN MET UPWITH A FEW CANADIANS TO SEEWHAT THEY BELIEVE ABOUTTHE AFTERLIFE. BUT FIRST,

TONY DAVIS LEARNS WHY GODISN'T THROUGH WITH HIM YET. TONY DAVIS WAS A YOUNGRHYTHM AND BLUES SINGER

WHO FOLLOWED THE PATH OFMANY ASPIRING MUSICIANS: I MOVED FROM ORLANDOFLORIDA TO LOS ANGELES

SEEKING TO SING R & B. TONY'S DREAMS OFSTARDOM JUST WEREN'TCOMING TRUE. SO HE TURNED

TO GOD FOR HELP. I WENT TO PRAYING RIGHTTHERE. I SAID SOMETHING GOTTO HAPPEN. I KNOW GOD, IF

YOU'RE REAL, PLEASE HELP ME.HELP ME GET OUT OF THIS. IGAVE MY LIFE TO CHRIST RIGHTTHERE. I CHANGED MY LIFE

AROUND AND I SAID, YOUKNOW WHAT? I WANT TOSTART SINGING FOR THE LORD.I WANT TO DO GOSPEL.

TONY STARTED A NEWCAREER AS A GOSPEL SINGER.HE THOUGHT HIS LIFE WASBACK ON TRACK. THAT IS,

UNTIL THE NIGHT HE WENT TOPICK UP HIS WIFE. I CAME JUST TO PICK UP MYWIFE FROM WORK AND WHEN I

PULLED UP TO THE HOUSEWHERE SHE WORKED, BULLETSSTART TO RING OUT FROMBEHIND ME. THE FIRST BULLET

HIT MY LEFT LEG, MY THIGHAREA AND I TURNED TO RUNAND AS I TURNED TO RUN, TWOMORE BULLETS FOLLOWED ME

AND HIT MY LEG AGAIN. AND IRAN AND I FELL DOWN BESIDEMY CAR. AND ALL OF ASUDDEN ANOTHER YOUNG MAN

CAME FROM THE OTHER SIDE,THE FRONT SIDE, AND HESTARTED SHOOTING ME ALLOVER AGAIN. A BULLET HIT MY

RIGHT SIDE THIGH AREA,ANOTHER BULLET HIT THEGROUND AND CAME UPTHROUGH MY LEG. ALL OF A

SUDDEN A BULLET WENTACROSS MY FACE, MY CHEST,AND I SAID, ENOUGH. IN THENAME OF JESUS. AND A YOUNG

MAN WAS STANDING BEHIND ATREE. AND HE HAD THE GUNPOINTED TOWARDS MY HEADAND I SAID WHY? WHAT HAVE I

DONE TO MAKE YOU SHOOT MELIKE THIS. YOU DON'T EVENKNOW ME. WHAT HAVE I DONE?AND HIS HAND BEGIN TO

TREMBLE AND HE LOWEREDTHE GUN. AT THAT POINT IKNEW I WAS GOING TO DIE. ITWAS TOO MUCH BLOOD.

ONE OF THE BULLETSSHATTERED TONY'S MAINARTERY. HE BLED TO DEATHRIGHT THERE ON THE STREET.

HIS WIFE, CRISELDA RANOUTSIDE WHEN THE SHOOTINGSTOPPED. WHEN I WENT THERE, HE

WAS, UM, HE WAS LAID OUTSHOT IN HIS BLOOD. I--IACTUALLY SAW MYSELF THATTHE AMBULANCE WAS GIVING

HIM CPR AND INSIDE I ASKEDTO GO WITH HIM AND THEYWOULD NOT TAKE ME BECAUSETHERE WAS DOING CPR TO TRY

TO BRING HIM BACK. I STARTED TO FLOATTOWARDS THESE CLOUDS. UM,THESE CLOUDS OPENED UP AND

THROUGH THESE CLOUDS, ISAW THIS HUGE CITY. UM, ITWAS SO STRANGE. BUT THECITY WAS BEAUTIFUL, MAN. I

SAW THESE COLORS I'VE NEVERSEEN BEFORE IN MY LIFE.THESE STRANGE, JUSTGLOWING COLORS. RADIANT

COLORS JUST GLOOMING OUTOF--OF THIS HUGE CITY. ALL OFA SUDDEN THIS VOICE SAID IT'SNOT YET YOUR TIME. GO BACK.

AND I'M LIKE NO, NO, NO, NO,NO. NO WAY. HE SAID MYNAME, TONY, YOUR WORK ISNOT YET DONE, GO BACK.

THE DOCTOR HAD ALREADYPRONOUNCED HIM DEAD. I OPENED MY EYES AND ILOOKED UP AND I WAS ON LIFE

SUPPORT, THIS THING WAS INMY THROAT. THIS LONG TUBEWITH A TRACHE WAS IN MYTHROAT. AND THIS DOCTOR

WAS STANDING OVER ME ANDHE WAS ABOUT TO THROW THISSHEET OVER MY HEAD BUT HEDROPPED THE SHEET AND HE

RAN OUT OF THE ROOM. DOCTORS AND NURSES RANTO HIS ROOM. THEY WAS CHECKING ME,

AND THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE.THEY SAID, YOU KNOW, YOUWAS DEAD FOR 30 MINUTES.AND USUALLY WHEN YOU, YOU

KNOW, AFTER A FEW MINUTESOF DEATH, YOU KNOW, WOULDHAVE EXPECTED ME TO HAVEBRAIN DAMAGE.

TONY WAS ALIVE BUT THEDOCTOR HAD SOMEDISAPPOINTING NEWS FOR HIM. AND THE DOCTOR WAS

TELLING ME WE SORRY, WEHAD TO CUT YOUR THROATIMMEDIATELY TO TRY TO GETAIR INTO YOUR BODY. SO WE

CUT YOUR THROAT AND WEMISTAKENLY CUT A PIECE OFYOUR VOCAL CORD. SO WHATWE CAN DO AT THIS POINT IS,

UM, HMM, WE CAN PUT A BOXON THE SIDE OF YOUR THROATAND YOU CAN TALK THROUGHTHIS BOX.

AND THEY TOLD HIM THEYMAY HAVE TO AMPUTATE HISLEFT LEG. AND UNFORTUNATELY YOUR

ARTERY PUT IN YOUR LEFT LEGIS NOT WORKING PROPERLY.IT'S NOT SITTING RIGHT IN THELEG.

I WAS MAD WITH GODBECAUSE I ASKED GOD WHYDID HE LET SOMETHING LIKETHIS HAPPEN TO A GOOD

PERSON THAT'S TRYING TOSERVE HIM? BUT TONY SAYS HE HELD ONTO HIS FAITH IN GOD.

I'VE SERVED GOD IN SPIRITAND IN TRUTH AND--AND INTHAT, I BELIEVE THAT HE'SGOING TO SHOW UP AND HEAL

ME. I BELIEVE THAT JESUS SAIDBY HIS STRIPES WE AREHEALED. THAT'S IN THE BIBLE.AND I BELIEVE THAT HE'S

GOING TO HEAL ME AND I'MGOING TO STAND ON THATONLY. TONY PRAYED FOR A

MIRACLE AND SAYS HE GOT ITTHAT VERY NIGHT. AND, ALL OF A SUDDEN, IFELT THIS WARMTHNESS COME

INTO THAT ROOM. IT CAMEINTO THE ROOM. A WARMTH--ANICE WARMTHNESS. AND ITTOUCHED MY LEG. AND I FELT

IT GO UP TO THE ARTERY AND IFELT LIKE STUFF WAS BEINGMINGLED TOGETHER IN MY LEG.AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT WENT

UP TO MY THROAT. TONY SAYS THAT WHILEGOD HEALED HIS BODY, HE WASALSO WORKING ON HIS HEART.

YOU MUST FORGIVE IS WHATGOD SAID IN MY SPIRIT. ANDI'M LIKE, NO, YOU GOT TO BEKIDDING ME? WHY SHOULD I

FORGIVE THOSE GUYS THATSHOT ME LIKE THIS? AND HESAID AGAIN, YOU MUSTFORGIVE. AND WHEN HE SAID

THAT, I SAID YOU KNOW WHAT?THIS IS A CHOICE FOR ME. I'MGOING TO FORGIVE. IT'S NOT AFEELING, BUT IT'S A CHOICE. SO

THEREFORE I FORGIVE. POLICE TOLD TONY HE WASPROBABLY THE VICTIM OF ALOCAL GANG INITIATION.

I REALLY STRONGLYBELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT ITWAS A MIRACLE BECAUSE THEWAY THAT MY HUSBAND WAS

SHOT, IT'S--I--I SEE THATPEOPLE COMES IN THEHOSPITAL WHEN HE WASINJURED WITH ONE BULLET IN

THEIR--THEIR BODY THAT THEYHAD DIED. HE HAD FIVEBULLET AND HE NEVER--HEDIDN'T--HE DIED BUT GOD

BROUGHT HIM BACK FOR AREASON. TONY IS STILL SINGINGGOSPEL AND SAYS THAT

WHEREVER HE GOES, HE WANTSPEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THEPOWER OF GOD'S LOVE. I KNOW AND I TRULY

BELIEVE WHEN THE SCRIPTURESAYS THAT NOT EVEN DEATHCAN SEPARATE US FROM HISLOVE, I THINK ABOUT HOW HE

TOUCHED ME AND BROUGHTME BACK TO LIFE. HOW HEGAVE ME MY JOY BACK ANDMY STRENGTH BACK AND MY

FAITHFULNESS TO HIM. IT JUST,I MEAN, I'M JUST TOTALLYOVERWHELMED WITH HISGRACE AND HIS MERCY.

YOU KNOW, THIS IS ANAMAZING TESTIMONY BECAUSETONY STARTED OFF WANTINGTO BE AN R & B SINGER AND

THEN SAID IT'S NOT WORKING.THEN HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO THELORD AND IT SEEMED LIKEEVERYTHING SHOULD HAVE

BEEN MOVING ALONG ANDTHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN HE'SGOING TO PICK UP HIS WIFEAND HE GETS SHOT MULTIPLE

TIMES AND DID NOT EVEN GETA--A RESPONSE OF WHY THISHAPPENED. AND HE'S ASKINGTHE GUY WHY DID YOU DO THIS

TO ME? WHY ARE YOU DOINGTHIS? AND IT WAS JUSTBECAUSE IT WAS ANINITIATION. THAT'S WHAT THE

DETECTIVES HEARD. THAT'SWHAT YOU HEARD. BUT YOUKNOW WHAT? IT WAS AMAZINGWHEN HE SAW THIS CITY WITH

PERFECT CLARITY THATREVELATION TALKS ABOUTAND THEN GOD SAYS YOU GOTTO GO BACK HOME AND I LOVE

IT, HE WAS LIKE NO, NO, NO, NO,NO. BUT GOD SAID YOU GOT TOGO BACK HOME AND YOU'VEGOT TO FORGIVE. THE BIBLE

SAYS SOMETHING SOPOWERFUL BECAUSE INROMANS CHAPTER 12 VERSE 19,IT SAYS, BELOVED, DO NOT

AVENGE YOURSELF BUTRATHER GIVE PLACE TO THEWRATH. FOR IT IS WRITTEN,VENGEANCE IS MINE SAYETH

THE LORD, I WILL REPAYSAYETH THE LORD. AND HESAYS IF YOUR ENEMY ISHUNGRY, FEED HIM. IF HE IS

THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK.GOD IS SAYING IF YOU DON'TFORGIVE, I'VE GOT TO COMEAGAINST YOU BECAUSE GOD IS

A GOD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.TODAY I KNOW YOU'VE BEENHURT, I KNOW THERE HAVEBEEN SOME DIFFICULTY IN

YOUR LIFE, BUT YOU'VE GOT TOFORGIVE. THERE IS NO CHOICE.IT IS THE ONLY CHOICE. I GOTTO GET SOMETHING INTO YOUR

HANDS TOO. IS IT REAL? YES.GOD HAS--HE HAS PUTSOMETHING SO REAL INSIDE OFYOU THAT THE DEVIL CANNOT

TAKE IT AWAY BECAUSE IT'S SODEEP INSIDE OF YOU. ASLAURA-LYNN COMES IN EVENNOW, I BELIEVE THAT THERE

ARE PEOPLE THAT GOD ISSAYING YOU'VE BEEN DOINGRIGHT BUT YOU NEED NOW TOGO THE NEXT STEP. IT'S--IT'S A

CHOICE THAT YOU HAVE TOMAKE. YES. AND YOU KNOW WHAT?THERE IS NO, UH, DENYING

THAT IT IS DIFFICULT WHENYOU HAVE BEEN HURT ANDSOMEBODY HAS COME AGAINSTYOU, ATTACKED YOUR FAMILY,

ATTACKED YOU PERSONALLY,BETRAYED YOU. UH, MAYBESOMEBODY DOESN'T SHOOTYOU WITH A GUN, BUT THEY

SHOOT YOU WITH ARROWSTHAT STRIKE YOUR HEART.GOD SEES IT AND HE KNOWSALL ABOUT IT AND HE ASKS

YOU TO JUST RELINQUISH YOURENEMY. TAKE YOUR ENEMY.JUST--JUST PICTURE THEIR FACEAND JUST LET IT GO. LET IT GO

AND ASK GOD TO GIVE YOU THESTRENGTH TO SIMPLY RELEASEIT INTO HIS HANDS BECAUSEYOU KNOW WHAT? JESUS HAS

FORGIVEN US AND IF YOU LOOKDEEP INSIDE YOUR HEART, YOUKNOW THAT THERE IS INIQUITYAND EVERY VILE THING IN

THERE. AND YET JESUS HASFORGIVEN YOU. SO WOULDYOU OFFER THAT FORGIVENESSFREELY TO SOMEONE ELSE?

TONY SAID IN SPIRIT AND INTRUTH BE A SPIRIT AND INTRUTH CHRISTIAN. CALL THENUMBER ON SCREEN. SAY IT'S

HARD BUT I'M GOING TO DO IT. YEAH. I'M MAKING A CHOICE.1-855-759-0700. ASK FOR IS IT

REAL? IT IS. THIS IS YOUR BESTDAY.(MUSIC) DADDY?

YEAH, BUDDY. HOW MANY NICKELS ARE INA DOLLAR? THERE ARE 20 NICKELS IN A

DOLLAR. HOW DO BIRDS FLY? DOESMILK REALLY MAKE MY BONESSTRONGER?

YEAH, YEAH. DADDY, WHEN WE DIE, WILLWE GO TO HEAVEN? DO YOU HAVE THE ANSWER

TO LIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION?CALL THE 700 CLUB, WE'LLHELP YOU FIND ANSWERS TOTHE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

LIFE BRINGS YOUR WAY.(MUSIC) WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TOGO. TODAY WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT HANG ON BECAUSE THEBEST IS YET TO COME. HAVEYOU EVER FELT LIKE LIFE WASLIKE A ROLLER COASTER AND,

UH, YOU WERE AT A THEMEPARK, YOU DIDN'T REALLYKNOW WHAT IT WAS ALLABOUT BECAUSE YOU

COULDN'T REALLY SEE IT.YOU DIDN'T KNOW IF IT WAS ADROP ZONE OR A WIDOWMAKER OR WAS IT JUST ONE OF

THOSE ZIGZAG ROLLERCOASTERS? WELL, THE BIBLETEACHES THAT EVERYONEWILL EXPERIENCE TRIALS IN

THIS LIFE. BUT IF WE TRUSTHIM, GOD WILL CARRY USTHROUGH THE DIFFICULTTIMES. NOW I WANT TO GIVE

YOU FOUR TIMELESS TRUTHSOF HANGING ON FOR YOURBEST TO COME. LET ME TELLYOU ABOUT NUMBER ONE,

WHAT THOSE CHALLENGES DOFOR US. THEY CONNECT US.DAVID, THE PSALMIST OFISRAEL. HE WROTE THIS IN THE

119TH PSALM, IN THE 67THVERSE, BEFORE I WASAFFLICTED I WENT ASTRAY.NOW WHEN SOMEONE DIES IN

THE FAMILY, LOVED ONESGATHER FROM FAR AND NEARFOR A FUNERAL. PEOPLE WANTTO BE TOGETHER WHEN

TROUBLE HITS AND WHENSOMEONE IS SERIOUSLY ILL,THEIR FRIENDS ANDNEIGHBORS GATHER TO CHECK

IN ON THEM JUST TO MAKESURE THINGS ARE ALL RIGHT.NOW TROUBLE NOT ONLYDRAWS PEOPLE TOGETHER, BUT

IT ALSO DRAWS THEM TO THELORD. SOMETIMES WHENPEOPLE GET BAD NEWS FROMTHE DOCTOR ABOUT THEIR

PHYSICAL CONDITION, THEYTAKE A RENEWED INTEREST INPRAYER AND GOING TOCHURCH AND HEARING WHAT

GOD HAS TO SAY. SO THEYCONNECT US. BUT NUMBERTWO, THEY GUARD US. GENESIS50:20 SAYS THIS. BUT AS FOR

YOU, YOU THOUGHT EVILAGAINST ME BUT GOD MEANTIT FOR GOOD TO BRING TO PASSAS IT IS THIS DAY TO SAVE

MUCH PEOPLE ALIVE. NOW IT'SNOT THIS 20/20 HINDSIGHT, IT'S50/20. GENESIS 50:20. LIKE ASURGE PROTECTOR, A PROBLEM

CAN BE A BLESSING INDISGUISE IF IT PREVENTS YOUFROM BEING HARMED BYSOMETHING MORE SERIOUS. I

READ OF A STORY OF A WOMANWHO WAS FIRED FOR REFUSINGTO DO SOMETHING UNETHICALTHAT HER BOSS HAD ASKED

HER TO DO. NOW SHE WAS OUTOF A JOB, BUT IT SAVED HERFROM BEING CONVICTED ANDSENT TO PRISON. A YEAR

LATER WHEN THE TRUTHSURFACED, SHE WASPROTECTED. GOD IS THE ONLYTRUE SURGE PROTECTOR. BUT

NUMBER THREE, THIS ISSOMETHING YOU HAVE TOREMEMBER. THOSE VERYCHALLENGES REFINE US.

ROMANS 5:3 AND 4 SAYS ANDDO NOT--NOT ONLY SO, BUT WEGLORY IN TRIBULATION ALSOKNOWING THAT TRIBULATION

WORKETH PATIENCE ANDPATIENCE EXPERIENCE ANDEXPERIENCE HOPE ANDDIFFICULTIES WHEN REACHED

BIBLICALLY ARE CHARACTERBUILDERS. GOD IS FAR MOREINTERESTED IN YOURCHARACTER THAN YOUR

COMFORT. YOURRELATIONSHIP TO GOD ANDYOUR CHARACTER ARE THEONLY TWO THING THAT'S

YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE WITHYOU INTO ETERNITY. THEAPOSTLE PAUL EMPHASIZEDTHIS TRUTH IN ROMANS 8:28. HE

SAYS ALL THINGS WORKTOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OFTHEM THAT LOVE GOD AND ARETHE CALLED ACCORDING TO

HIS PURPOSE. THE GRADUATEDEGREE OF THE CHRISTIANDISCIPLESHIP COMES FROMATTENDING THE UNIVERSITY OF

HARD KNOCKS. AND THEYWILL DEPLOY YOU AND GODWILL USE YOUR LIFE AS AMASTERPIECE. HANG ON, THE

BEST IS YET TO COME. ANDTHAT IS YOUR HOPE TO GO. YOU KNOW, I LIKE BRIAN'SANALOGY THAT GOD IS LIKE A

SURGE PROTECTOR. IT IS SOTRUE. WHEN I THINK BACK INMY LIFE TO SOME OF THE MOSTDIFFICULT THINGS I'VE

EXPERIENCED, YOU KNOWWHAT? IT DROVE ME TO MYKNEES IN PRAYER ASKING GODTO RESCUE ME, TO SAVE ME, TO

HELP ME. IT--IT BUILT MYCHARACTER AND IT BUILT MYFAITH BECAUSE I HAVE SEENTHAT GOD COMES THROUGH.

THAT'S WHAT GOING TOHAPPEN--IS GOING TO HAPPENFOR YOU AS WELL IN YOURTRIAL AND YOUR TRIBULATION.

COMING UP NEXT WE'VE GOTSOME STREETERS WITH SOMETOUGH QUESTIONS ON THEAFTERLIFE.

(MUSIC) HOW DO WE GET OVER THEFEAR OF REJECTION? THAT'S THE HARD PART,

ISN'T IT? UM-- YOU JUST DO IT. TRUST, RIGHT? TRUSTING INTHE HOLY SPIRIT. KNOWING

THE VOICE, KNOWING YOURFATHER'S VOICE. YOU SWALLOW YOUR PRIDE. I'D LIKE TO THINK JUST

GROUNDING YOURSELF INYOUR WORTH IN HOW GODLOVES YOU AND HOWIMPORTANT YOU ARE TO HIM.

YOU STOP BEING CANADIAN.YOU STOP BEING NORTHAMERICAN. YOU STOPTHINKING THAT, UM,

EVERYONE IS GOING TO HATEYOU. IF YOU ARE SHARINGTRUSTED INFORMATION TO A

TRUSTED PERSON, UM, THENTHEY LIKELY TRUST YOU BACK. HEAVEN AND HELL IS STILLA SCARY SUBJECT, UM,

REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IKNOW IN MY HEART OF HEARTSTHAT I'M GOING TO HEAVEN.(MUSIC)

WHAT ARE SOME OF THEREACTIONS YOU GET WHENTALKING ABOUT HEAVEN ANDHELL?

I WAS REALLY, REALLYFIRED UP ABOUT GOD AND WASREALLY, REALLY FIRED UPABOUT SENDING SOME OF MY

OLD FRIENDS E-MAILS ABOUTGOD AND I WAS COMING FROMA PLACE OF JOY AND JUSTTOTAL ENTHUSIASM BUT, UH,

THEY WERE RECEIVING IT AS APLACE WHERE I WAS, UH,COMING AT THEM WITHPOINTING FINGER AND

CONDEMNATION. I THINK ONEOF MY E-MAILS, WELL,ACTUALLY WENT OUT WITHALL CAPITAL LETTERS AND I

GOT A FEW E-MAILS BACK THATWERE ALL IN CAPITAL LETTERSAND THEY WERE A LITTLE BITOF YELLING BACK AND FORTH.

DEFINITELY PEOPLE FEELINGJUDGED AND FEELING THATTHEY'RE PARADIGM THATTHEY'RE SYSTEM OF BELIEFS IS

BEING CHALLENGED. WELL, TYPICAL NEGATIVEREACTIONS IS LIKE REALLYDISMISSIVE LIKE ALL RIGHT,

YEAH, COOL. YOU KNOW, JUSTLIKE KIND OF NOTHINGNESS.(MUSIC) LAURA-LYNN, IT'S SO

INSIGHTFUL WHEN YOU STARTHEARING ABOUT THE, UH, THEWAY PEOPLE VIEWING THEAFTERLIFE.

YEAH. YOU KNOW, ONE OF THETHINGS THAT I--I FIND, UM,REJECTION IS POSSIBLY THE

GREATEST DETERRENT FROMPEOPLE SHARING THE GOSPEL. YES. AND REALLY TALKING

ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE. SURE. WHAT IF THATPERSON THINKS I'M CRAZY. YEAH.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN JESUS.WHAT IF, YOU KNOW, THATPERSON, YOU KNOW, THINKSI'M, YOU KNOW, ONE OF THOSE

BIBLE THUMPING NUTS ORSOMETHING LIKE THAT. UM,BUT, YOU KNOW, BRIAN, UH,THERE IS NO GREATER TRUTH

THAN JESUS. YES. AND DO YOU KNOW WHATKEEPS ME TALKING ABOUT

HIM? IS ONE DAY, WHEN WEARE FACING THE FINAL DAY. YEAH. THE FINAL JUDGMENT.

YEAH. I DON'T WANT ANY OF MYFRIENDS EVER LOOKING AT MEAND SAYING SO YOU KNEW

AND YOU DIDN'T TELL ME. SOYOU KNEW. YEAH. AND--AND YOU'RE GOING TO

HEAVEN AND I DIDN'T KNOWABOUT JESUS. I DON'T EVERWANT TO BE IN THAT POSITION. YOU KNOW, YOU'RE SO

RIGHT. ONE OF THE THINGSTHAT I FIND MYSELF AND, UH,AND EVEN BEING A PUBLICFIGURE, THE THING THAT

REALLY, UH, PROPELS ME IS,UH, A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE US,LAURA-LYNN, AND AS THEY'RELOOKING AT US, THEY'RE

SAYING I WISH THEY WOULDACTUALLY BE EXACTLY WHATTHEY ARE ON TELEVISION ANDEVERY OTHER TIME. SO I THINK

THAT PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITYIS TO IMPORTANT BECAUSEPEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THATPEOPLE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT

THEY BELIEVE. UM-HUM. AND ALSO, BRIAN,A LOT OF PEOPLE WISH THATTHEY COULD TRULY BELIEVE.

THAT'S RIGHT. LIKE THEY ADMIRE PASSIONIN SOMEBODY WHEN-- YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

WHEN SOMEONE ACTUALLYKNOWS WHAT THEY BELIEVEIN. YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

WELL, WE'LL BE RIGHTBACK. IT WAS THE MOST ANGELIC,THE MOST--

PEACEFUL, SAFE, LOVINGPLACE. I WASN'T AFRAID. THERE WAS NOT A FEELING

OF TIME. I WAS COMFORTED. I HAD APEACE AND JOY I'VE NEVERHAD.

I WAS ABSOLUTELYOVERWHELMED BY THISSENSATION OF BEING HOME.(MUSIC)

YOU JUST CAN'T EVENIMAGINE.(MUSIC) WELCOME BACK. UP NEXT,

YOU'LL GET TO SEE DRAWINGSOF WHAT ONE MAN SAW INHELL AND HOW HE ESCAPED. HELL IS DEFINITELY REAL.

IT'S REAL. VERY MUCH REAL. CARL NITON KNOWS WHATHELL IS LIKE BECAUSE HE SAYSHE WENT THERE AFTER HE

ACCIDENTALLY OVERDOSED ONA DRUG CALLED VALIUM. LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS,YOU'RE IN TORMENT.

EVEN THOUGH IT HAPPENEDMORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO,CARL WAS ABLE TO DRAWPICTURES OF WHAT HE SAYS HE

ENCOUNTERED IN HELL. THE ONE IN THE MIDDLE,THEY--THEY TRYING TO GETOUT--OUT OF, UH, OUT OF THE

FIRE BUT IT--IT DON'T--THERE'SNO WAY THEY CAN GET OUT.THERE'S NO HOPE FOR THEM.UH, THERE'S NO WAY OF

ESCAPE FOR THEM. CARL GREW UP IN ACHRISTIAN HOME WHERE HEHAD BEEN TAUGHT THAT

HEAVEN AND HELL WERE REALPLACES. EVEN AS A CHILD, HEWAS SENSITIVE TO THE THINGSOF GOD.

I ALWAYS FELT THEPRESENCE OF GOD. I SEENANGELS OF GOD AT A YOUNGAGE THAT LET ME KNOW THAT

GOD WAS WITH ME. AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, CARLJOINED THE ARMY ANDMARRIED. BOTH HIS MARRIAGE

AND HIS MILITARY CAREERWERE SHORT-LIVED. AND PLATOON LEADER, IMEAN PLATOON SERGEANT AND

SQUAD LEADER WERE COMINGTO ME AND--AND THEY SAID,OH, YOU NOT DOING YOUR JOBAND YOU SHOULD BE DOING

BETTER THAN THIS. ANDYOU'RE NOT GOING TO NEVERMAKE, UH, THE NEXT RANK ANDSO I GOT REALLY FRUSTRATED.

CARL DECIDED IT WAS TIMETO GET OUT OF THE ARMY BYGOING AWOL. HE HITCHHIKEDTO OHIO TO SEE AN OLD

FRIEND. HE THEN WENT ON ATWO-WEEK DRUG BINGE. ONENIGHT, CARL WENT TO A CRACKHOUSE IN THE WORSE PART OF

COLUMBUS OHIO. YOU COULD SMELL THESTENCH OF THE CRACKCOCAINE. YOU COULD SMELL

THE STENCH OF THEMARIJUANA. PEOPLE WAS HIGHAND LAYING ALL ACROSS OFTHE FLOORS.

CARL SMOKED SOME CRACKAND STARTED DRINKINGALCOHOL AND USING OTHERDRUGS. BUT HE SAYS HE

BELIEVES IT WAS THE LAST PILLHE TOOK THAT SENT HIM ON AJOURNEY TO HELL. AND I TOOK THAT VALIUM

AND BEFORE I KNEW IT, I FELLOFF THE COUCH ON TO THEFLOOR. IT WAS PITCH-BLACKDARK. I BEGIN TO QUIVER, I

BEGIN TO HAVE THE SHAKES,AND I BE GETTING GOING DOWNAND DOWN AND DOWN LIKE ADEEP, UH, PIT. AND I

STARTED SMELLING THESTENCH OF HELL. IT'S THEMOST ROTTENEST THING THATYOU CAN EVER SMELL IN YOUR

LIFE. IN FACT, YOU CAN'T EVENIMAGINE IT. I BEGIN TO FEEL ATUGGING, A PULLING. LIKE THEBIBLE SAYS DEMONS TUG AND

NAG AT YOU. THEY WASCALLING MY NAME. THEYWOULD SAY WE GOT YOU, WEGOT YOU, WE GOT YOU. YOU

BELONG TO US NOW. I SAWSOULS, LOST SOULS THAT WASIN TORMENT IN THE LAKE OFFIRE. THEY WAS CRYING AND

CALLING ON GOD. THEY WASHOPELESS. AND I CALLED ONTHE LORD JESUS, JESUS, HELPME JESUS, HELP ME JESUS. AND

SOON I CALLED ON HIS NAME. ISAW THE HAND OF GOD SNATCHME OUT OF HELL AND MY SPIRITWENT BACK INTO MY BODY.

CARL SAYS THAT HE WAS INHELL FOR MORE THAN HALF ANHOUR. I WAS SHAKING AND

TREMBLING AND I TURNED MYHEAD TO THE RIGHT. AND THEYSAID I WAS DEAD. AND THEYSAID THAT WAS--THAT IT WAS

30 TO 35 MINUTES. BUT I KNOWTHERE IS A LOVING GOD THATLOVED ME SO MUCH. THREE DAYS LATER, CARL

RETURNED TO FORT EUSTACEVIRGINIA TO FACE THECONSEQUENCES OF GOINGAWOL. HE WAS DEMOTED AND

CONFINED TO THE BARRACK ASFOR ONE MONTH. DURING THATTIME ALONE, HE COMPLETELYSURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST. I IMMEDIATELY ASKED THELORD TO FORGIVE ME, REPENT,PUT THOSE SINS BEHIND ME,

GO FORWARD. AND GOD, AND IREALLY GAVE MY LIFE BACKTO CHRIST AFTER THAT. TODAY, CARL IS MARRIED

AGAIN. HE'S ALSO ON AMISSION TO TELL AS MANYPEOPLE AS HE CAN ABOUT THEREALITY OF HEAVEN AND HELL.

GOD LOVED ME SO MUCH.HE LOVED ME SO MUCH THATHE GIVES ME A SECONDCHANCE. AND I'M HERE TO

TELL THE STORY, NOW THESTORY ABOUT THE TRUETESTIMONY HOW AWESOMEGOD IS. IF PEOPLE WILL ONLY

LISTEN AND DON'T TAKE GODFOR GRANTED. DON'T THROWYOUR LIFE AWAY. ACCEPTJESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLESTORY CARL HAS GIVEN US.YOU KNOW, IT'S BECAUSE OFTHAT DAY WHEN HE SAW THAT

THAT HIS WHOLE LIFECHANGED. GOD GAVE HIM ASECOND CHANCE. GODSHOWED HIM A WINDOW INTO

THE AFTERLIFE AND WE'VEHEARD THOSE STORIES OFPEOPLE WHO, YOU KNOW, HAVENEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES.
