I WAS PRETTY CRUSHED.

REPORTER: CAUGHT IN THE ACT.

I TOTALLY LOST IT

REPORTER: A HUSBAND GETS

BUSTED FOR HAVING AN ONLINE

AFFAIR.

THAT KIND OF CONVERSATION

SHOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN PLACE.

REPORTER: WE CONTINUE OUR

SERIES, MARRIAGE ON THE ROCK.

I SPILLED AND TOLD HER AND --

AND THEN SHE LEFT.

REPORTER: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

PAT: WELCOME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, TO THIS EDITION OF

"700 CLUB." THERE IS A CRISIS IN

MARRIAGE ONE OUT OF EVERY TWO

MARRIAGES ENDS IN DIVORCE.

THAT IS A STARTLING STATISTIC.

ON THIS PROGRAM WE ARE GOING TO

TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE A HAPPY

LIFE AS A MARRIED COUPLE.

BUT NOW THE DEBATE BEGINS, WHO

WILL BE THE NEXT POPE?

THAT IS THE QUESTION BEFORE THE

CATHOLIC CARDINALS ASSEMBLING IN

ROME.

TERRY: THEIR CHOICE WILL

HAVE A PROFOUND IMPACT ON THE

WORLD'S 1.2 BILLION CATHOLICS,

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY

FROM VATICAN CITY IN ROME.

REPORTER: 115 CARDINALS WILL

GATHER IN THE SISTINE CHAPEL TO

ELECT POPE BENEDICT'S SUCCESSOR.

ONE CALLED IT THE MOST IMPORTANT

DECISION OF HIS LIFE.

THERE IS A SENSE THAT THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH IS AT A CROSS

ROADS AND ELECTION OF A NEW POPE

MAY SET A NEW TONE FOR YEARS TO

COME.

TONE OF THE PAPACY IS WHERE

THE POPE IS FROM AND WHAT HIS

STRENGTHS ARE.

WHAT WE HOPE AND PRAY FOR A POPE

AS PAUL SAID IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5

5:20 WHO IS AN AMBASSADOR OF

CHRIST.

ALWAYS IN MIND I AM GOING TO

DO NOW, SOMETHING, WHICH WILL

NOT JUST AFFECT MY LIFE BUT THE

LIFE OF ALL THE WORLD.

BRAND NEW GOAL WITH YOUR

BALLOT PAPER, HOLD IT UP IN

FRONT OF THE ALTAR, I CALL ON

THE LORD, JESUS, WHO WILL BE MY

JUDGE TO WITNESS I AM VOTING FOR

THE ONE I BELIEVE TO BE WORTHY.

THAT IS REALLY A MOMENT OF

INTENSE, I WOULD SAY EMOTION.

REPORTER: NO CLEAR FRONT

RUNNER, VATICAN WATCHERS HAVE

IDENTIFIED BRAZIL'S CARDINAL

ODILO SCHER

ODILO SCHERER, LUIS ANTONIO

TAGLE OR SCOLA AND SEAN O'MALLEY

AND DOLAN.

DOLAN IS KNOWN FOR HIS GREAT --

O'MALLEY HIS SIMPLE LIFE STYLE

WHO TYPICALLY WEARS SANDALS.

LET US PRAY TO CHOOSE A NEW

POPE WHO WILL AFFIRM US IN OUR

FAITH.

REPORTER: SAYING GOES THE ONE

WHO ENTERS THE CONCLAVE A POPE

COMES OUT A CARDINAL.

FIRST VOTE TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

IF THE WHITE SMOKE IS NOT SEEN

RISING, THE CARDINALS WILL

CONTINUE THEIR VOTING ON

WEDNESDAY.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

VATICAN CITY, ROME.

PAT: THEY HAVE CHOSEN A

COUPLE OF VERY FINE POPES.

LAST TWO FROM GERMANY AND

POLAND.

MAYBE THEY'LL BRANCH OUT TO

PHILIPPINES OR BRAZIL.

I CERTAINLY DON'T KNOW.

ONLY THE LORD KNOWS.

WHILE THE CARDINALS ARE DEBATING

THEIR NEXT LEADER IN ROME,

POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON ARE

DEBATING

HOW TO

SPEND YOUR

TAX

DOLLARS, LEE WEB HAS THAT STORY.

REPORTER: PAT, HOUSE

REPUBLICANS SAY THEY CAN GET RID

OF THE FEDERAL DEFICIT IN 10

YEARS.

PAUL STRAND SAYS

THE

NEW

PLAN

KEEPS SPENDING GROWING AT A

SLOWER RATE.

THE GOP PLAN WILL HELP THE

ECONOMY GROW AND BRING MORE TAX

MONEY INTO WASHINGTON AND REPEAL

'OBAMACARE' AND CUT SPENDING IN

OTHER PLACES.

WHITE HOUSE IS NOT LIKELY TO GO

ALONG WITH THE PLAN.

THE PLAN WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN

FEBRUARY 4TH.

MAY NOT BE OUT UNTIL NEXT MONTH.

PAT, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

RYAN'S PLAN?

PAT: I THINK IT IS A GOOD

ONE.

HE IS AN INTELLIGENT MAN.

HE IS TRYING TO GET IT UNDER

CONTROL.

PRESIDENT AND HIS ALLIES DON'T

WANT TO TOUCH ANY OF THEIR

SACRED COWS.

YOU LOOK AT THE ENORMOUS WASTE

AND CRAZY THINGS THEY ARE

SPENDING MONEY ON.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS?

ANY BUSINESS FOUND ITSELF

RIDDLED WITH CORRUPTION AND

WASTE AND FRAUD WOULD SAY WE

HAVE TO TIGHTEN UP.

ONLY CONCERN THEY HAVE IS THE

NEXT ELECTION.

REPORTER: WHITE HOUSE IS

DEMANDING CHINA STOP -- TOM DON

LAN WANTS THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT

TO CRACK DOWN ON HACKERS.

CHINESE GOVERNMENT HAS DENIED

THEY WERE INVOLVED IN THE

ATTACKS.

U.S. WANTS CHINA TO ESTABLISH

INTERNATIONAL RULES FOR INTERNET

CONDUCT.

HACKERS FROM CHINA HAVE BROKEN

INTO AMERICAN CORPORATE

COMPUTERS.

TOM DONLAN WARNED NORTH KOREA.

AFTER NORTH KOREA NULLIFIED 1953

ARM CYST OF THE KOREAN WAR.

REGIME THREATENED A NUCLEAR

STRIKE.

DONLAN WARNED THEY WOULD FACE

THE FULL RANGE OF OUR CAPABILITY

CAPABILITIES AND U.S. WOULD NOT

TOLERATE TRANSFERRING WEAPONSES.

SENATOR CLAIR MCCASKILL SAYS SHE

RECEIVED A PAT DOWN AS SHE

BOARDED A FLIGHT.

SHE SENT OUT A MESSAGE SAYING

TODAY IN MY AIRPORT SCREENING,

TESTS ON MY HANDS WAS POSITIVE.

GOT PRIVATE MORE AGGRESSIVE PAT

DOWN, OMG, VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.

I HAVE PAT DOWNS CONSTANTLY, I

HAVE A METAL KNEE.

THERE SHOULDN'T BE SPECIAL RULES

FOR CONGRESS.

I SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE ANYONE

ELSE.

MISSOURI DEMOCRAT HAS BEEN

CRITICAL OF TSA PROCEDURES.

PAT?

REPORT

PAT: THAT OUTFIT IS OUT OF

CONTROL.

IT IS OUTRAGEOUS WHAT THEY DO.

THE SENATOR, THEY WERE GROPING

THEIR PRIVATE PARTS, OUTRAGEOUS,

TERRY, OUTRAGEOUS WHAT THEY ARE

DOING.

TERRY: I WAS TRAVELING WITH

MY SISTER.

SHE WAS FLYING TO MEET ME.

THERE WAS AN ELDERLY COUPLE.

TRAVELS BECOME CONFUSED.

THEY WERE TAKEN TO THE SIDE,

BAGS SERP SEARCHED.

THESE ARE NOT PEOPLE DOING

ANYTHING BUT TRAVELING.

SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE.

PAT: ISRAELIS HAVE A

SOPHISTICATED WAY OF SCREENING.

THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE DEALING

WITH.

COUPLE OF ELDERLY TOURIST GOING

TO VISIT GRANDCHILDREN, THEY ARE

NOT THREATS.

HOW ABOUT THE CHILD IN THE

REAL CHAIR?

PAT: OUTRAGEOUS.

IF WE FIRED HALF OF THE TSA

AGENTS THEY DON'T DO ANYTHING

ANYHOW.

OKAY.

TERRY: I AM WITH IT.

PAT: ONE DOWN FOR MAYOR,

NANNY STATE BLOOMBERG.

LEE, I AM SURE THAT MEANS NOW

YOU CAN GO TO NEW YORK AND HAVE

THE BIGGEST GULP OF COKE YOU CAN

IMAGINE.

REPORTER: IF I SO, CHOOSE,

THAT'S RIGHT.

NEW YORK CITY BAN ON SUGARY

DRINKS WILL NOT AGREE.

A JUDGE CALLED IT ARBITRARY AND

CAPRICIOUS.

RESTAURANT OWNERS ARE CALLING IT

A VICTORY.

THE MAYOR SAYS IT IS A START

AGAINST HIS FIGHT OF OBESITY AND

PLANS TO APPEAL.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE STORY.

IN THE END THE COURTS WILL

REGULATE THE SALE OF SUGARY

BEVERAGES LEADING TO DISEASE AND

DEATH FOR THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

REPORTER: MAYOR MICHAEL

BLOOMBERG SAYS THE CITY WILL

APPEAL THE SUPREME COURT'S

DECISION TO STRIKE DOWN HIS BAN

ON SUGARY DRINKS.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY

INSTANCES WHERE IT IS REVERSED.

REPORTER: BANNING SELLING 16

OUNCES OF SODA.

THE JUDGE NOTED THE BAN APPLIED

TO SOME ESTABLISHMENTS AND

EXCLUDED SOME BEVERAGES WITH

HIGHER CONCENTRATIONS OF SUGAR

AND THE LOOPHOLES DEFEAT THE

PURPOSE OF THE RULE.

LAST MINUTE RULING IS A RELIEF

TO THOUSANDS OF SMALL BUSINESS

OWNERS IN NEW YORK CITY

SCRAMBLING TO COMPLY WITH THE

LAW.

THEY SAY THE BAN WAS HURTING

THEIR BOTTOM LINE.

IT COSTS US EXTRA GLASSWARE

AND LABOR.

WE HAD TO SIT DOWN AND THINK AND

REPRINT MENUS.

REPORTER:

FOR NOW

THE SUPER

SIZED DRINKS STILL AVAILABLE IN

THE BIG APPLE AND MANY NEW

YORKERS SAY THAT IS THE WAY IT

SHOULD STAY.

I THINK THEY GO TOO FAR.

PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO EAT

AND DRINK WHAT THEY WANT.

ASKING THE GOVERNMENT TO

PROTECT US FROM LARGE COKES IS

BEYOND WHAT THE GOVERNMENT

SHOULD DO.

EDUCATION SHOULD BE OUT THERE

WHAT SODA DOES.

IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT TAKING

PEOPLE'S RIGHTS AWAY.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

REPORTER: PAT, PEOPLE ON THE

STREETS OF NEW YORK AS WELL AS

THE SUPREME COURT JUDGE HAVE A

LITTLE COMMON SENSE.

PAT: THEY SURE DO.

I TELL YOU, BLOOMBERG IS AN

ENORMOUSLY RICH MAN.

MULTI, MULTIBILLIONAIRE THAT

BLOOMBERG SYSTEM OF STOCK QUOTES

AND EVERYTHING IS A WONDER OF

TECHNOLOGY.

HE HAS SWEPT WALL STREET AND

MADE A LOT OF MONEY.

I THINK WHAT HE SEES, HE THINKS

IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR THE CITY.

I MAY POINT OUT.

SOMEBODY COULD SAY YOU ARE

WRONG, SUPREME COURTS IN THE

UNITED STATES MEANS THE HIGHEST

COURT IN THE LAND.

SUPREME COURT IN NEW YORK MEANS

A LOWER COURT.

BIG COURT IS COURT OF APPEALS.

THIS IS THE FIRST LEVEL JUDGE

THEN YOU GO UP THE LINE

APPELLATE AND SUPREME COURT.

UNDOUBTEDLY IT WILL BE REPEALED.

SHE MAYBE REVERSED.

DID THE CITY COUNCIL GO ALONG

WITH THE MAYOR OR ARBITRARY ACT

BY ONE MAN.

THE REVERSAL MIGHT STAND.

IF THE CITY COUNCIL VOTED

TOGETHER IT IS A DIFFERENT

MATTER, TERRY?

TERRY: COMING UP, AN

INTIMATE INTERVIEW WITH WIFE OF

SAEED ABEDINI.

OUR WEDDING WAS A MIRACLE.

WE WERE CONVERTS.

BIBLES WERE PASSED OUT.

MANY CAME TO KNOW CHRIST,

HUNDREDS.

TERRY: SEE HOW THIS MOTHER

OF TWO IS COPING WITH HER

HUSBAND SENTENCED TO EIGHT YEARS

IN AN IRANIAN PRISON.

REPORTER: WEDNESDAY, A SECRET

EDITION.

I AM OUT OF HERE.

PROSTITUTES, ESCORTS.

REPORTER: HIS WIFE.

I FELT LIKE A BALL AND CHAIN.

A BUSTED HUSBAND.

I CAME BACK TO AN EMPTY HOUSE

REPORTER: WHY THEY STUCK

TOGETHER.

REPORTER: ON A SPECIAL

EDITION OF THE "700 CLUB."

PAT: SAEED ABEDINI MADE

HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD WHEN

HE WAS SENTENCED TO EIGHT YEARS

IN ONE OF THE WORST PRISONS IN

IRAN.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE WAS A CHRISTIAN.

HERE IN AMERICA, HIS WIFE HAS

BEEN SUFFERING ALONG WITH THEIR

TWO CHILDREN, WENDY GRIFFITH SAT

DOWN WITH THIS EXCLUSIVE AND

INTIMATE INTERVIEW ABOUT HER

LOVE FOR HER HUSBAND AND HER

CHOOSING TO FIGHT FOR HIS

FREEDOM.

WENDY: THEIR LOVE STORY BEGAN

IN IRAN, NAGHMEH BELIEVED GOD

WAS RETURNING HER TO HER

HOMELAND IN 2001 TO MINISTER.

SHE FIRST SAW SAEED ABEDINI.

HE WAS LEADING WORSHIP IN ONE OF

THE UNDERGROUND HOUSE CHURCHES.

WENDY: WHAT MADE YOU FALL IN

LOVE WITH HIM?

I SAID LORD, I CAN'T MARRY

SOMEONE MEDIOCRE, BUT SOMEONE

PASSIONATE FOR YOU.

I HAD NO IDEA HOW HE WOULD

ANSWER MY PRAYER.

I HAD NO IDEA IT WOULD BE SO

RADICAL.

WENDY: NOT LONG AFTERWARDS,

THE TWO MARRIED IN IRAN.

WEDDING DREW HUNDREDS OF WELL

WISHERS AND AROWS AROWED THE

SUSPICION.

BIBLES WERE PASSED OUT, MANY

CAME TO KNOW CHRIST.

WENDY: TAKES A SPECIAL DAY TO

SHARE HER BIG DAY.

IT IS GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT

YOU, IT WASN'T.

IT WAS A BIG, I MEAN, IT WAS

AMAZING.

IT WAS WHAT WE BOTH WOULD HAVE

WANTED FOR A WEDDING.

WENDY: NINE YEARS AND TWO

CHILDREN LATER, FOUR-YEAR-OLD

JACOB AND SIX-YEAR-OLD REBECCA,

SHE IS NOW LIVING HER WORST

NIGHTMARE.

LAST YEAR SAEED WAS DETAINED AND

PUT UNDER HOUSE ARREST.

THEN IN JANUARY THE IRANIAN

REVOLUTIONARY COURT SO CALLED

HANGING JUDGE SENTENCED HIM TO

EIGHT YEARS IN IRAN'S BRUTAL

EVIN PRISON.

HIS CRIME PREACHING THE GOSPEL.

YOU CAN SEE THEM HANGING OUTSIDE

THE PRISON.

IT SCARED ME.

I HAVE HAD DREAMS OF REVOLUTION

AND FAMILY MEMBERS HANGED IN

THAT PRISON AND KILLED AND

ABUSED AND RAPE.

WENDY: BEFORE HE WAS

SENTENCED, SAEED COULD SKYPE.

NOW NO PERSONAL CONTACT.

ONLY REPORTS AND LETTERS FROM

FAMILY MEMBERS IN IRAN.

SAEED IS BEING TORTURED AND

PRESSURED TO RENOUNCE HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

I SAID THEY DON'T KNOW WHO

THEY ARE DEALING WITH.

SAEED CAME FROM A RADICAL MUSLIM

BACKGROUND, SINCE HE ACCEPTED

CHRIST, HE WAS VERY COMMITTED,

DOESN'T MATTER WHAT BEATINGS HE

GOES THROUGH OR SAY WE ARE GOING

TO KILL YOU.

WENDY: AS A WIFE, WHAT IS THE

HARDEST PART FOR YOU?

THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME GRACE

TO GO TO HIS PRESENCE AND GET MY

COMFORT.

AS A MOM, EVERY TIME IS A SALVE

IN MY HEART WHEN I SEE THEM

STRUGGLING AND CAN'T DO

ANYTHING.

MY SON'S CHARACTER HAS CHANGED

100% SINCE THE ARREST.

HE WON'T TALK AND RESERVED.

MY DAUGHTER CRIES A LOT.

WENDY: WHAT DOES THIS SAY?

SHE ADMITS SHE SANK INTO

DESPAIR.

I WAS IN EDGE OF EXTREME

DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY AND

WORRY.

I COULD SEE WHERE I WAS ALMOST

BEING BROKEN, I WOULD HAVE HAD

TO CHECK MYSELF IN BUT THE LORD

DIDN'T LET ME BREAK.

I CRIED OUT AND SAID LORD, IN

PHILIPPIANS, YOU PROMISE TO GIVE

PEACE BEYOND UNDERSTANDING.

THE SCRIPTURE IS TRUE, I WANT

PEOPLE TO KNOW IF THEY CLING TO

HIM AND BELIEVE IN HIS

SCRIPTURE, DON'T LET HIM GO,

HOLD ON TIGHT, HE IS

GOING TO

GET YOU THROUGH WHATEVER IT

IS.

WENDY: IN THE MEANTIME ACLU

IS GOING FULL THROTTLE WITH A

LEGAL AND MEDIA CAMPAIGN.

JORDAN SEKULOW SAYS PUBLICITY

COULD BE A LIFE SAVER FOR SAEED

JUST LIKE IT WAS FOR NARDIKANI.

SURVIVING ONE DAY IS NOT A

GREAT CHANCE.

YOU CAN BE BEATEN TO DEATH BY

THE GUARDS OR A FELLOW INMATE.

IF THE STORY IS TALKED ABOUT

PEOPLE DON'T GET BEATEN AS

BADLY.

WENDY: PEOPLE ARE TALKING.

NEARLY HALF A MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE SIGNED SAVE SAEED ON ACLU'S

WEBSITE.

CHRISTIANS ARE SPEAKING OUT ON

HIS BEHALF.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY

PROMISED TO WORK FOR SAEED'S

FREEDOM BUT MADE NO PUBLIC

COMMENT.

NAGHMEH SAYS PRAYER WILL FREE

HER HUSBAND.

DO YOU BELIEVE YOU WILL SEE

HIM AGAIN?

I DO.

MY FLESH WANTS TO SAY HE IS NOT

GOING TO SURVIVE.

WHEN I PRAY, I FEEL LIKE THE

LORD, HE IS A GOD OF HOPE.

HE TELLS ME IT IS AT HIS TIME HE

WILL RELEASE SAEED.

PAT: YOU CAN FIND OUT HOW YOU

CAN HELP PASTOR SAEED BY GOING

TO OUR WEBSITE CBNNEWS.COM.

GO TO THE THRONE OF GRACE.

GOD CAN MOVE, RULER'S HEART IS

IN THE HAND OF THE LORD AND CAN

TURN IT LIKE WATER.

THOSE IRANIAN RULERS ARE IN THE

HAND OF GOD.

GOD CAN CHANGE THEIR HEARTS AND

MINDS AND RELEASE THIS MAN.

OUTRAGEOUS WHAT THEY DO OVER

THERE.

THEY MUST UNDERSTAND FROM A

PUBLIC RELATIONS STANDPOINT,

THIS IS A DREADFUL BLOT ON

ISLAM.

IT SHOWS ISLAM IS INTOLERANT.

THIS IS BORN OUT IN THE ACTUAL

CONDUCT OF THESE PEOPLE.

THIS IS AN INTOLERANT, VICIOUS

RELIGIOUS POLITICAL SYSTEM.

THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD.

TERRY.

TERRY: UP NEXT, HIS WIFE

READ HIS MAIL ONLINE AND BUSTED

HER CHEATING HUSBAND.

I WENT TO BED THAT NIGHT WITH

A PIT IN MY STOMACH KNOWING

SOMETHING WAS UP.

WHAT DO YOU DO AT THAT POINT?

I SPILLED AND TOLD HER AND, AND

SHE LEFT.

PAT: TIM AND STEFANI SEEMED

TO BE THE PERFECT COUPLE.

EVERYONE THOUGHT SO ESPECIALLY

STEFANI.

SHE WAS CLUELESS ABOUT TIM'S

OTHER LIFE UNTIL THE DAY SHE

READ HIS MAIL ONLINE.

IT CONSUMED ME.

IT GAVE ME THAT ODD FEELING OF

PURSUIT.

REPORTER: IT WAS SOMETHING

TIM FELT SECRET, HIS ADDICTION

TO PORNOGRAPHY.

I WAS FILLING A VOID, RIGHT

OR WRONG.

FILLING SOMETHING I NEEDED

FILLED.

REPORTER: IT BEGAN WITH

TEENAGE CURIOSITY AND A

MAGAZINE.

IMAGES SEEKED -- A BOY'S

FASCINATION HAD GROWN INTO AN

ADDICTION FUELLED BY THE

INTERNET.

IT STARTED SLOWLY, IT WAS A

SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, I WAS

SLOWLY ADDICTED.

NO ONE SUSPECTED TIM HAD A

PROBLEM.

HE WAS A CHRISTIAN ACTIVE IN HIS

CHURCH.

HIS WIFE, STEFANI HAD NO IDEA HE

WAS HIDING SOMETHING.

I KNEW WE HAD SOME ISSUES.

I DIDN'T THEY THEY WERE

HORRIFIC.

I THOUGHT WE HAD A PRETTY

HEALTHY MARRIAGE.

REPORTER: TIM TRAVELED WITH

WORK.

THE TRAVEL ALLOWED HIM TO

INDULGE AND ALLOWED HIM TO OPEN

THE DOOR OF THE ATTENTION OF

WOMEN.

HE PURSUED ONE AFFAIR AFTER

ANOTHER.

LATER I WOULD BE ANGRY WITH

MYSELF.

I WOULD.

REPORTER: EVENTUALLY TIM AND

STEFANI HAD CHILDREN, NOTHING

CHANGED.

TIM KNEW IT WAS WRONG.

THE ADDICTION HAD TAKEN OVER.

I WAS SO GONE, I JUST, WHEN

THE DEVIL HAS THAT KIND OF GRIP,

YOU DON'T REALIZE IT.

YOU ARE JUST NUMB.

I WAS NUMB.

REPORTER: ONE DAY TIM WAS

COMFORTED WITH THE TRUTH WHEN A

FRIEND TALKED TO HIM.

TIM'S GUILT WAS OVERWHELMING.

IT WAS WHERE I WAS AT THAT

DAY.

I TOTALLY LOST IT.

I LEFT AND I REMEMBER PRAYING

AND SAYING GOD, I AM DONE.

I AM DONE, DO WHAT YOU WANT.

HE TOOK IT AWAY.

THE ADDICTION WAS GONE.

DESIRE FOR AFFAIRS WAS GONE.

THAT TO ME WAS THE MOST

IMPACTFUL MOMENT OF MY LIFE.

IT WAS SO REAL AND THAT IS WHEN

MY FAITH BECAME REAL.

REPORTER: TIM STILL HAD

STRUGGLES AND CONTINUED CHATTING

ONLINE WITH WOMEN.

EVEN SO HE WORKED ON BEING A

BETTER HUSBAND AND FATHER.

STEFANI NOTICED THE CHANGE BUT

DIDN'T KNOW WHY.

TIM HADN'T CONFESSED HIS

SECRETS.

STEFANI CAME ACROSS A FACEBOOK

ENTRY FROM HER HUSBAND TO A

WOMAN SHE DIDN'T KNOW.

I WAS DEVASTATED.

THAT CONVERSATION SHOULDN'T HAVE

TAKEN PLACE BETWEEN MY HUSBAND

AND SOMEBODY ELSE.

IT WAS CROSSING THE LINE.

IT WAS ABSOLUTE DISGUST FOR

ME.

SHE DIDN'T KNOW THE REST OF THE

STORY.

I WENT TO BED WITH A PIT

KNOWING SOMETHING WAS UP.

SHE KNEW, SOMETHING WAS UP.

SO HARD TO TALK ABOUT.

SO I JUST SPILLED.

WHAT DO YOU DO AT THAT POINT?

I SPILLED AND TOLD HER AND SHE

LEFT.

GOT THE KEYS AND IMMEDIATELY

DROVE TO CHURCH.

I SAT AT CHURCH AND CRIED OUT

FOR HELP AND JUST UM --

THE ONLY HOPE I HAD IS THAT I

KNEW MY WIFE.

I KNEW SHE LOVED ME.

REPORTER: NOW STEFANI KNEW.

I REMEMBER STANDING IN THE

KITCHEN AND TIM SAYING I'LL

RESPECT WHATEVER YOUR DECISION

IS.

I SAID I CAN'T HAVE YOU LEAVE,

YOU NEED TO STAY FOR THE KIDS.

LATER THAT NIGHT OUR PASTOR

SHARED WITH ME, YOU NEED TO

GRIEVE FOR YOUR MARRIAGE.

YOU NEED TO GRIEVE WHAT WAS AND

WHAT YOU HAD AND YOU NEED TO

GRIEVE THE FACT THAT YOUR

MARRIAGE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

EVER AGAIN.

BUT ALSO UM, HE SAID THE SIMPLE

WORDS OF FORGIVE AS YOU HAVE

BEEN FORGIVEN.

I REMEMBER TELLING HIM, I DON'T

KNOW IF I CAN FORGIVE HIM FOR

THIS.

COUPLE STAYED A PART FOR 10

DAYS.

DURING THAT TIME, STEFANI CAME

TO A REALIZATION THAT AT THE

TIME WAS VERY HARD TO ACCEPT.

IN ORDER FOR ME TO HEAL, I

HAVE TO FORGIVE HIM.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THE PAIN IS

GONE BUT I CAN START TO HEAL

KNOWING I HAVE GIVEN HIM THAT

AND TOGETHER WE CAN HEAL

TOGETHER.

REPORTER: PATH TO FORGIVENESS

AND REBUILDING TRUST WOULD TAKE

TIME.

HE HAD TO GAIN IT BACK.

BY HIM BEING OPEN AND HONEST,

HERE IS ALL MY PAST WORDS, CHECK

MY E-MAIL, MY FACEBOOK, CHECK

THIS.

ONCE WE WERE ABLE TO DO THAT,

PATH TO RECOVERY WAS RAPID.

SHE ACCEPTED WHERE I WAS.

SHE ACCEPTED IT WASN'T AN ISSUE

BUT I NEEDED ACCOUNTABILITY.

BY HIM BEING HONEST, IT MADE

IT EASIER FOR ME TO TRUST HIM.

REPORTER: HEALING AND

FORGIVENESS COME FROM GOD.

WITHOUT GOD I KNOW WE

WOULDN'T BE SITTING HERE TODAY.

WE WERE TAUGHT THAT CHRIST

HAD TO BE THE CENTER OF THE

HOUSE.

I THINK THAT IS BACKWARDS.

CHRIST HAS TO BE THE CENTER OF

YOUR LIFE AND THE CENTER OF YOUR

WIFE'S LIFE WILL BE DEFAULT BE

THE CENTER OF YOUR HOUSE.

PAT: ADDICTION.

ADDICTION.

THE ADDICTIONS TO PORNOGRAPHY IS

MORE POWERFUL THAN HEROIN AND

COCAINE.

IT IS PERVASIVE AND STARTS WITH

BOYS, EIGHT, NINE, TEN YEARS OLD

AND EXPOSED TO A PICTURE OF A

NAKED WOMAN AND BEGIN TO

FANTASIZE.

SOME FORGET WHAT THEY HAD SEEN,

OTHERS IT HAUNTS THEM.

FOR TIM IT HAUNTED HIM.

SO EASY, THE ACCESS TO THESE

THINGS IS SO EASY.

IT IS IN YOUR HOME, YOUR

COMPUTER, AT YOUR FINGERTIPS.

THERE THEY ARE ALL DOING THESE

UNBELIEVABLE, UNMENTIONABLE

THINGS.

THEN BEYOND THAT, THESE WOMEN

HAVE MADE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE

AND MEN MADE THEMSELVES

AVAILABLE AND SOCIAL NETWORKS

AND BEFORE LONG THIS SO-CALLED

HOOKING UP.

IT IS SO EASY NOW.

THE STRUCTURES HAVE GONE AWAY

THAT USED TO KEEP US BEHAVING

OURSELVES AND FLOOD GATES OPEN.

NOW I COUNSEL WOMEN IN THIS

REGARD.

THIS ISN'T AN INSULT TO YOU.

SO DON'T TAKE IT AS SOME

PERSONAL AFFRONT YOU NEED TO YOU

KNOW BE HURT ABOUT.

THIS IS AN ADDICTION ANYMORE

THAN A BROKEN LEG OR MENTAL

ILLNESS, IT IS AN ADDICTION.

YOU NEED AN UNDERSTANDING HEART

TO GET THAT THING TREATED.

TIM DID THE RIGHT THING, GAVE UP

ALL OF HIS PASSWORDS AND SECRETS

AND TURNED THEM OVER TO HIS WIFE

AND SAID OKAY.

I AM READY.

SOME OF YOU RIGHT NOW, YOU WANT

TO BE FREE.

THIS THING WILL KILL YOU.

IT WILL DESTROY YOU.

IT WILL TAKE AWAY YOUR MONEY,

YOUR AMBITION, THE MOST PRECIOUS

THING IN YOUR LIFE WHICH IS YOUR

FAMILY.

IT WILL TAKE AWAY YOUR CHILDREN,

YOUR DIGNITY, EVERYTHING!

THE DEVIL DOESN'T LIKE YOU.

HE DOESN'T LIKE YOU.

DON'T THINK THE DEVIL LIKES YOU.

HE WANTS TO ENTICE YOU SO THAT

HE CAN DESTROY YOU.

ALL OF THIS STUFF THAT YOU SEE

ON PORN AND INTERNET AND CABLE

AND ALL THE PLACES IN THE

MAGAZINES WHEREVER IT IS FOUND,

THAT IS SET OUT THERE TO DESTROY

YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS PLEASURE

IN SEASON FOR A SEASON.

IT IS NOT UNPLEASANT.

IF IT WERE, YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO

DO IT.

IT IS PLEASANT.

BUT THE DEVIL KNOWS HE IS GOING

TO DESTROY YOU.

YOU WANT TO BE FREE.

TIM WANTED TO BE FREE, HE DIDN'T

KNOW HOW.

YOU WANT TO BE FREE.

I WANT TO PRAY WITH YOU RIGHT

NOW.

DO IT NOW, THIS IS THE TIME.

LET'S PUT A BLACK EYE ON THE

DEVIL.

LET'S TELL HIM JESUS IS LORD OF

GLORY.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD WITH

ME.

IF YOU ARE ADDICTED TO DRUGS,

PORN, ALCOHOL, WHATEVER THE

ADDICTION IS, I WANT YOU TO PRAY

WITH ME RIGHT NOW IN JESUS

CHRIST WILL DO A MIRACLE.

PRAY WITH ME, LORD JESUS CHRIST,

THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, THAT'S RIGHT, SAY IT.

YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN MY

LIFE, YOU KNOW HOW I HAVE

STRUGGLED.

YOU KNOW WHAT HAS BEEN EATING AT

ME FOR SO LONG A TIME.

LORD, I COME TO YOU WITH MY

WEAKNESS.

I COME WITH MY FAILINGS.

AND I LAY THEM ALL ON YOUR

ALTAR.

AND I ASK, LORD, THAT YOU WILL

HEAR AND ANSWER AND FROM THIS

MOMENT ON, SET ME FREE.

I DECLARE LIBERTY IN JESUS'

NAME, I THANK YOU, LORD, THAT

YOU HAVE TAKEN MY LIFE AND MADE

ME A NEW PERSON.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, TELL

SOMEBODY.

IMPORTANT THAT YOU CONFESS WHAT

YOU HAVE DONE.

I HAVE SOMETHING CALLED "TRAPPED

IN TEMPTATION."

DAY," IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

OF MARRIAGES AND FAMILIES.

STRESS OF WORK, TAKING CARE OF

HOUSE HOLDS AND JUGGLING KID'S

ACTIVITIES STEALS PRECIOUS TIME

FROM THE ONES WE LOVE.

"NEW YORK TIMES" AUTHOR BRUCE

FEILER TRIED AN EXPERIMENT TO

GET CLOSER TO WIFE AND TWIN

DAUGHTERS.

NOW MARRIAGE AND FAMILY ARE

STRONGER THAN EVER.

TERRY: PLEASE WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB" SEF BRUCE

FEILER.

HONORED TO BE HERE.

TERRY: YOU TOOK UNIQUE

APPROACHES IN STRENGTHENING YOUR

FAMILY, YOU HAVE A WIFE AND TWO

BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS.

YOU WANTED TO MAKE KEEPS

FAMILIES TOGETHER.

TELL US ABOUT THE EXPERIMENT.

WE WANTED TO TRY NEW IDEAS.

I WOULD SAY OUR EXPERIMENT TWO

BIG BLOCKS.

WE NEEDED TO ADAPT, TO CONTROL

ALL THE CHANGE THAT WAS GOING ON

AROUND US.

WE STARTED A WEEKLY FAMILY

MEETING, TAKES 15 MINUTES ON

SUNDAY EVENINGS.

WHAT IS WORKING?

WHAT WILL WE WORK ON IN A WEEK

AHEAD.

CREATED A SAFE ZONE.

WE WOULD TALK ABOUT OUR FAMILY.

YOU NEED TO CHANGE, YOU ALSO

NEED BEDROCK.

WE MADE A FAMILY MISSION

STATEMENT.

WHEN I FIRST HEARD IT SOUNDED

COLD.

IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE THING.

CAN YOUR CHILDREN REALLY SAY

WHAT VALUES ARE MOST IMPORTANT

TO YOU?

WE HAD A PAJAMA PARTY.

WHAT MATTERS MOST TO US.

WE MADE A LIST.

FAITH, SERVICE, TRAVEL, JOY,

BAKING, COOKING, DOESN'T MATTER.

IT WAS DEFINING WHAT IS OUR BEST

POSSIBLE SELVES AND ACHIEVE WHAT

IS OUR BEST POSSIBLE SELVES.

TERRY: IT WASN'T JUST YOU

AND YOUR WIFE MAKING THE

DECISIONS, THEY WERE A PART OF

THE PROCESS.

THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE, DIDN'T

IT?

WE HAVE FOUND INCLUDING OUR

CHILDREN IN THE PROCESS EMPOWERS

THEM MORE AND HELPS THEM TO BE

MORE MOTIVATED.

LATEST RESEARCH SHOWS IF KIDS

SET THEIR OWN GOALS, IT IS

BUILDING UP THEIR BRAINS.

YOU CAN'T GET YOUR KIDS TO 16

AND SAY GO FORTH.

YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM PRACTICE

WITH THE SKILLS.

TERRY: IT SEEMS LIKE A

PRACTICAL THING, BRUCE.

I THINK ABOUT THIS BOOK, WE

ARE IN THIS STRAIGHT JACKET,

ONLY THINGS WE CAN IMPLEMENT

COME FROM EXPERTS.

THERE ARE ALL THESE IDEAS OF

MAKING TEAMS WORK.

200 NEW IDEAS ON TO THE TABLE.

IT IS NOT FIVE OR SIX OR SEVEN.

WHAT WORKS WITH YOUR FAMILY

MIGHT BE DIFFERENT FROM HER

FAMILY OR MY FAMILY.

IF YOU TAKE THREE IDEAS FROM

THIS BOOK, YOU CAN HAVE A

HAPPIER FAMILY IN A WEEK

TERRY: YOU LOOKED TO

CORPORATION AND ORGANIZATIONS

AND WHAT MAKES, THAT MADE SO

MUCH SENSE AS I WAS READING IT.

THIS IS A GREAT IDEA.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS A

PROBLEM IN FAMILIES IS

COMMUNICATION AND KEEPING THOSE

DOORS OPEN.

YOU TALK ABOUT FIGHTING SMART.

MY WIFE AND I WOULD HAVE THIS

FIGHT EVERY NIGHT.

WHO IS PICKING UP DRY CLEANING

AND MILK.

IT WAS GETTING US DOWN.

I WENT TO TALK TO PEOPLE THAT

MAKE PEACE AROUND THE WORLD.

WE DON'T FIGHT BETWEEN

6:00-8:00, RESEARCH SHOWS THAT

IS THE HIGHEST STRESS TIME.

I WAS SITTING HIGH AT MY DESK,

SHE WAS LOWER, ARMS CROSSED.

I WAS IN THE POWER POSITION.

IF YOU SIT ACROSS FROM SOMEONE

YOU WILL BE MORE

CONFRONTATIONAL, SIDE BY SIDE

MORE COLLABORATIVE.

WE SIT SIDE BY SIDE.

REDUCES THE STRESS.

LET'S BRING THEM INTO FAMILIES.

TERRY: YOU MENTIONED

CUSHIONED SERVICE, THE WAY YOU

POSITION FURNITURE.

IF YOU ARE SITTING AT A RIGID

SERVICE, YOU ARE MORE RIGID.

CUSHIONED SERVICE MORE

CUSHIONED.

WE WENT THROUGH MY DAUGHTER'S

REPORT CARD, SAT ON A WINDOW

SEAT OUR GIRLS ON OUR SEAT.

WE ARE ON YOUR SIDE, YOU HAVE

THINGS TO WORK ON.

THERE IS ALL THIS KNOW HOW OUT

THERE.

HERE IS THE NO. 1 THING WE KNOW.

ALL FAMILIES HAVE CONFLICT.

IF YOU CAN LIMIT AND CONTROL

THAT CONFLICT, YOU CAN RECOVER.

WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, SPEND LESS

TIME WORRYING ABOUT THE BAD

TIMES, MORE TIME BUILDING UP THE

GOOD TIMES.

IF YOU FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE

MEMORIES, THEY WILL OUTWEIGH THE

BIG ONES.

TERRY: MARRIAGE ENHANCERS,

DATE NIGHT AND FAMILY DINNERS.

YOU SAY THOSE AREN'T AS

WONDERFUL OR QUITE THE SOLUTION.

ON THE DATE NIGHT, IMPROVING

MARRIAGE, IF YOU GO TO DINNER

AND A MOVIE, IT WON'T HAVE THAT

MUCH IMPACT.

GET LOST, COOK A NEW RECIPE,

TAKE A CLASS.

SOMETHING LIKE WHEN YOU WERE

FIRST MEETING, IT WILL REKINDLE

THAT MEETING.

AS FOR DINNER, IT IS GOOD FOR

OUR LIVES.

MY WIFE WORKS LATE OR SPORTING

PRACTICE.

TERRY: PEOPLE FIGHTING AT

THE DINNER

TABLE.

ONLY 10 MINUTES OF

CONVERSATION IN ANY MEAL.

REST TAKEN UP WITH TAKE YOUR

ELBOWS OFF THE TABLE.

YOU CAN MOVE THAT TO BREAKFAST,

OR SNACK.

WE TESTED TALKING GAMES TO FIND

THE ONES MOST RESTORE TIF.

FAVORITE PEACE OF ADVICE IF YOU

TALK TO KIDS ABOUT THEIR FAMILY

HISTORY WHERE THEIR GRANDPARENTS

WERE BORN OR AN ILLNESS THEY

OVERCAME, THOSE KIDS THAT KNOW

MORE ABOUT THEIR HISTORY.

NO. 1 PREDICT TO OF A CHILD'S

WELL BEING.

THEY UNDERSTAND THEIR LONG

NARRATIVE.

UPS AND DOWNS, KIDS THAT

UNDERSTAND THEIR RELATIVES HAVE

HAD GOOD TIMES AND BAD GIVES

THEM THE CONFIDENCE TO PUSH

THROUGH AND MAKE THEIR OWN LIVES

HAPPIER.

TERRY: DEFINES THIS IS WHO

WE ARE.

IT IS A WONDERFUL BOOK.

I REALLY ENJOYED IT.

BRUCE HAS OVER 200 IDEAS.

TOUGH FIND ONE THAT WORKS.

TO HELP BRING YOUR FAMILY CLOSER

TOGETHER, IT IS CALLED "THE

SECRETS OF HAPPY FAMILIES."

AVAILABLE WHERE BOOKS ARE SOLD.

NO. 5 ON THE BEST SELLER.

IN DEED.

TERRY: WHEN WE COME

BACK, WE

ARE

GOING TO

BRING IT

ON W

IT

H

YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

AFTER 16 YEARS OF MARRIAGE, MY

HUSBAND HAS CHEATED THE ENTIRE

TIME.

I HAVE CHOSEN TO FORGIVE HIM TO

MAINTAIN OUR FAMILY.

HIS PAST

HAUNTS ME.

WE ARE

GOING TO ANSWER ANGELA'S

QUESTION AND MORE AFTER THIS.

TERRY: PAT THIS FIRST E-MAIL

QUESTION COMES FROM ANGELA, MY

HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED

16 YEARS AND HAVE 4 CHILDREN.

HE HAS CHEATED ON ME THE ENTIRE

MARRIAGE.

HE SAYS HE HAS GIVEN HIS LIFE TO

THE LORD, HE HAS BEEN BAPTIZED

AND READS THE BIBLE.

I FEEL HE IS NOT CHEATING

BECAUSE OF HIS TRANSPARENT

BEHAVIOR, STILL HIS PAST

BEHAVIOR HAUNTS ME.

HAVE I REALLY FORGIVEN HIM?

PAT: ANGELA, THAT IS TOUGH,

ONLY GOD HAS THE POWER TO PUT

THAT IN THE SEA OF

FORGETFULNESS.

WHEN YOU STAND PRAYING, ODD

AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE.

SO YOU FORGIVEN HIM, CONTINUE TO

WALK AND HOPE AND PRAY THIS

THING WORKS OUT.

YOU HAVE CHILDREN TOGETHER, A

LIFE TOGETHER.

AND IT WOULDN'T HURT IF YOU

TALKED SOME TIME TO THIS GUY AND

SAID HOW COME YOU DID THIS?

YOU KNOW, BE HONEST WITH ME.

HOW DID I FAIL?

WHAT COULD I HAVE DONE FOR YOU

THAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER.

TERRY: MAYBE AS YOU SAID,

WHEN YOU SAID EARLIER, SOMETIMES

THINGS HAPPEN IN A MAN'S LIFE

WHEN HE IS A YOUNG BOY AND

NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

PAT: IF HE TALKS IT THROUGH

WITH HIS WIFE, SIT DOWN, SAY HOW

COME YOU DID THIS?

BE HONEST.

IF HE IS HONEST, IT WILL CLEAR

THE AIR.

THAT IS TOUGH.

MAYBE HE DOESN'T WANT TO TALK

ABOUT IT.

IT WILL HELP HIM AND YOU.

TERRY: HIS PAST BEHAVIOR

HAUNTEDS HER.

WHEN YOU FORGIVE SOMEONE, IT

TAKES TIME TO MOVE PAST.

PAT: SIXTEEN YEARS, THEY

LIVED TOGETHER AND CHILDREN,

MULTIPLE AFFAIRS ON AND ON.

HE IS A SERIAL ADULL TER.

TERRY: HI PAT, I LOVE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" BEST

PART IS WHEN YOU PRAY.

WHEN YOU PRAY FOR HEALING DO YOU

GET A WORD FOR RESTORATION OF

MARRIAGES?

I HAVE MANY FRIENDS THAT WATCH

THE SHOW AND PRAYING FOR

MARRIAGE RESTORATION.

PAT: RE WE PRAY FOR MARRIAGE.

THE LORD SAYS I HATE DIVORCE.

KING JAMES, HE TALKS ABOUT BEING

FAITHFUL TO YOUR WIFE OF YOUR

YOUTH.

HE PUTS THE LONELY INTO FAMILY.

HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT FAMILIES.

WHEN WE PRAY FOR THEM, HE

ANSWERS.

TERRY: THIS IS KATRINA, I

HAVE DEALT WITH ADDICTION MY

WHOLE LIFE.

MANY OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS WERE

ADDICTED.

I STILL STRUGGLE WITH ADDICTED

FAMILY MEMBERS.

DOES GOING TO AL NON CONFLICT

WITH LEADING A CHRISTIAN LIFE?

PAT: I THINK THE WOMAN THAT

STARTED AL NON WAS A CHRISTIAN.

VERY MOVING BOOK ABOUT WHAT SHE

HAD TO GO THROUGH.

TO GET TOGETHER WITH THE PEOPLE

THAT HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCES

AND TALK ABOUT IT.

OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING GOING ON.

MAYBE SPIRITUALLY, MAYBE GENETIC

THAT PREDISPOSES PEOPLE TO

ADDICTION TO VARIOUS TYPES OF

SUBSTANCES, YOU NEED HELP TO

DEAL WITH IT.

SO I DON'T THINK IT WILL

CONFLICT WITH YOUR CHRISTIAN

FAITH AT ALL.

TERRY: SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE

WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS, HE

WENT TO HELL TO DEAL WITH OUR

PUNISHMENT.

PAT: BIBLE SAYS HE WENT TO

HEAVEN TO PREACH.

HE TOOK THE SINS ON IF CROSS,

GOD SMOUED HIM AS HE BORE ON HIS

BODY ALL OF THE SINS OF MAN

KIND.

HE DIED FOR ALL OF US IN THAT HE

DIED, HE DIED ONCE.

HE DIDN'T GO TO HELL TO PAY THE

PRICE FOR YOUR SIN.

TERRY: JAY SAYS WHY IS THERE

SO MUCH REFORMED THEOLOGY

APPEARING THESE DAYS.

WORD REFORM MEANS TO MAKE

CHANGES.

ANY CHRISTIAN KNOWS GOD'S WORD

IS PERFECT.

PAT: MAY I RECOMMEND YOU

STUDY A LITTLE HISTORY.

REFORMATION CAME ABOUT AS A

PROTEST NEXT THE SACK DOAL

PRACTICES OF THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

A LOT OF THINGS INCLUDING

SELLING OF INDULGENCES AND

MARTIN LUTHER PUT HIS THESIS ON

THE WALL OF THE CHURCH IN

WHITENBURG.

THAT WAS THE REFORMATION.

OUT OF THIS HAS COME A NUMBER OF

THEOLOGIANS WHO WROTE IN THE

POST-CATHOLIC MODE.

MOST PROMINENT WAS JOHN KELVIN

FROM GENEVA.

THEY ARE CALLED REFORMED.

DUTCH REFORM, SWEDISH REFORM.

THAT IS WHAT IT IS ABOUT.

ISN'T THAT THEY ARE CONSTANTLY

REFORMING.

[LAUGHTER].

IT IS THE NAME OF THE THEOLOGY

THAT CAME OUT OF THE

REFORMATION.

TERRY: THAT IS ALL THE TIME

WE HAVE FOR QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU FOR THAT HISTORY

LESSON.

PAT: HAVE TO HAVE HISTORY.

TERRY: THE WIDOW IN OUR NEXT

STORY LOST HER HUSBAND AND HOME

AND BUSINESS NEXT.

SHE SURVIVED DEADLY TYPHOON WITH

NOTHING BUT HER LIFE.

WHEN I SAW THE WATER ENTER MY

HOUSE, I KNEW I HAD TO GET OUT.

REPORTER: HEAVY RAINS CAUSED

THE

RIVER

IN EMMA'S

CITY

FLOODED AND DESTROYED HUNDREDS

OF HOMES INCLUDING

EMMAS.

WHEN THE WATER RESEEDED HER

THINGS WERE BURIED IN MUD.

CBN BROUGHT RELIEF SUPPLIES AND

SLEEPING MATS AND FRESH WATER.

FOR EMMA, WHO WAS A WIDOW, CBN

DECIDED TO DO MORE.

FIRST WE CLEANED AND RESTORED

HER HOUSE.

CBN GAVE EMMA EVERYTHING SHE

NEEDED TO RESTART HER BUSINESS

MAKING AND SELLING SPRING ROLLS.

EMMA'S FOOD BUSINESS IS DOING

WELL.

SHE IS NOW ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR

HER GRAND KIDS WHOM SHE IS

HELPING TO RAISE.

CBN PROVIDED EVERYTHING I

NEEDED TO GET BACK ON MY FEED.

I THANK GOD FOR SENDING PEOPLE

LIKE YOU TO GIVE ME HOPE.

TERRY: HELPING PEOPLE LIKE

EMMA IS WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT.

HAPPEN.
