The 700 Club - March 26, 2013

Joe was the pilot of the small plane that crashed and killed his entire family. Plus, a torn stomach muscle had Mary facing months of recovery and pain. See how God worked in each life to bring healing on today's 700 Club. Read Transcript


SIGNAL ONE TO 9-1-1.

MOMENTS AFTER TAKE OFF.

IT APPEARED IT TOOK A

NOSEDIVE.

Lee: THE FUEL INJECTOR

BLOWS, AND A PILOT GOES

DOWN.

I DIDN'T THINK THERE

WOULD BE ANY SURVIVORS.

Lee: HOW HE SURVIVED

THE CRASH AND THE

AFTERMATH.

WE REALIZED THE PILOT WAS

ALIVE.

Lee: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

I PRAYED, LORD, HELP ME.

*

Pat: HEY, IT'S

TUESDAY.

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE SUPREMES ARE GOING TO

DECIDE WHETHER THEY WILL

DOMINATE THE SOCIAL SCENE,

OR WHETHER THEY'RE GOING TO

LEAVE IT TO THE ELECTORATE

TO DECIDE THE FUTURE OF

MARRIAGE.

Terry: WELL, THE COURT

IS GOING THE HEAR TWO CASES

ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, AND

THE RULINGS COULD BRING SOME

SURPRISING CONSEQUENCES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THE STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THE FIRST

CASE IS A CHALLENGE TO

CALIFORNIA'S 2008 VOTER

APPROVED BALLOT MEASURE

KNOWN AS PROPOSITION 8.

IT DEFINES MARRIAGE AS

BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN,

AND EFFECTIVELY BANS GAY

MARRIAGE.

THE SECOND LOOKS AT THE

DEFENSIVE MARRIAGE ACT,

WHICH ONLY RECOGNIZES

MARRIAGES AS THE UNION OF

ONE MAN AND WOMAN UNDER

FEDERAL LAW.

FOR JESSICA AND LINDSAY, THE

SUPREME COURT HEARINGS ARE

PERSONAL.

THEY'RE GETTING LEGALLY

MARRIED THIS WEEKEND IN

MARYLAND, AND THEY ALREADY

FORESEE CHALLENGES.

ON THIS TAX RETURN, I'M

MARRIED.

ON THIS TAX RETURN, I'M

SINGLE.

WE'RE GOING TO DO IT JOINT

AT THE STATE LEVEL.

WE WOULD BE ON THE SAME PAGE

AS WE ARE AS THE STATE WE

LIVE IN, IF THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT CAN EXTEND THAT

SAME RIGHT TO US.

Reporter: BUT BOTH SAY

THEY'RE HOPEFUL.

IT IS AN INCREDIBLY

EXCITING TIME, PERSONALLY,

BECAUSE I'M DECIDING TO

MARRY JESSICA, BUT PUBLICLY

BECAUSE THE COUNTRY IS

SHIFTING.

Reporter: MOST

AMERICANS NOW APPROVE

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, WITH

YOUNGER PEOPLE SUPPORTING IT

AND OLDER PEOPLE OPPOSED.

WE SEE STRONG DECISIONS

AGAINST IT WITH OLDER

AMERICANS AND REPUBLICANS.

Reporter: STILL, SOME

CONSERVATIVES, LIKE RYAN

ANDERSON, ARE TRYING TO TURN

THE TIDE.

CO-AUTHORING THE BOOK "WHAT

IS MARRIAGE," HE ARGUES THAT

MARRIAGE IS ALREADY IN

CRISIS, THREATING SOCIETY,

KIDS, AND THE FAMILY UNIT.

SAME-SEX-ATTRACTED

AMERICANS ARE NOT TO BLAME

FOR THE PROBLEM WE FACE IN

AMERICA RIGHT NOW.

BUT THE QUESTION WE HAVE TO

ASK IS DO WE WANT TO DOUBLE

DOWN ON THE MISTAKES OF THE

LAST 40 YEARS.

OR DO WE WANT TO RECOVER A

SOUND UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT

MARRIAGE IS WHY THE

MATTERS.

Reporter: ANDERSON AND

OTHERS WORRY IT COULD HAVE

PROFOUND CONSEQUENSES,

ULTIMATELY LEADING TO

POLYGAMY.

AND IT COULD HURT

ORGANIZATIONS IF CHURCHES,

ORGANIZATIONS AND BUSINESSES

HAVE TO SUPPORT WHATEVER THE

GOVERNMENT DEFINES AS A

MARRIAGE, OR POSSIBLY FACE

GOVERNMENT ACTION.

BUT ANDERSON BELIEVES THERE

IS SUPPORTERS OF TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE, JUST AS PRO-LIFE

MADE ITS WAY FOR YEARS AND

CHANGED PUBLIC OPINION.

HE WANTS PEOPLE TO

UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF THE

TRADITIONAL FAMILY AS THEY

GROW OLDER.

40 YEARS LATER, MY

GENERATION IS MORE PRO-LIFE

THAN MY PARENTS.

WE'RE JUST STARTING THIS

DISCUSSION ABOUT MARRIAGE.

Reporter: THESE CASES

HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO SETTLE

THE ISSUES ONCE AND FOR

OFF.

SUPPORTERS OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE HOPE THE JUDGES

WILL RULE IN FAVOR OF

EQUALITY, WHILE OPPONENTS

SAY WHATEVER THE DECISION,

THEY HAVE ONLY JUST BEGUN

THEIR DEFENSE.

JOHN JESSUP, SUPREME COURT

TH COURT.

Pat: I HOPE THE JUDGES

ARE CONSERVATIVE IN THEIR

DECISION.

ROE VS. WADE WAS A DISASTER,

IF I CAN USE THAT TERM USED

BY ANOTHER COMMENTATOR.

IT HAD NO BASIS IN TRADITION

OR LAW.

IT WAS MADE UP BY THE

JUDGES.

AND WE HAVE A DIVIDE, A

FIGHT, A SQUABBLE,

THROUGHOUT OUR NATION EVER

SINCE ROE VS. WADE.

AND OVER 50 BILLION

ABORTIONS HAVE BEEN FORMED,

AND HOW DID THAT HELP ABLE.

BUT THAT DECLARED A

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO BE

ABLE TO ABORT YOUR CHILD.

THAT YOU COULD MURDER YOUR

UNBORN CHILD AND THAT WAS A

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.

NOW THE QUESTION IS: IS IT

GOING TO BE DECREED BY FIVE

JUDGES THAT HOMOSEXUAL

MARRIAGE IS A CONSTITUTIONAL

RIGHT?

WOULDN'T IT BE BETTER TO LET

THIS BE WORKED OUT IN THE

STATES, STATE BY STATE,

LEGISLATURE BY LEGISLATURE,

VOTER BY VOTER.

AND AFTER A WHILE A

CONSENSUS COMES ABOUT, AND

IF THE NATION DECIDES THAT'S

IT, THEN, OF COURSE, PEOPLE

WILL GO ALONG WITH IT.

AND THEY CAN ALSO BE ABLE TO

CHANGE IT.

BUT ONCE IT IS,

QUOTE,"ENSHRINED IN THE

CONSTITUTION IERAS IT I,"

IT IS A DIFFERENT MATTER.

I HOPE THE JUDGES SAY LET'S

LEAD THIS TO THE PEOPLE TO

DECIDE.

I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE ABOUT

2,000 DIFFERENT FEDERAL

PROGRAMS THAT DEPEND ON

MARRIAGE.

THAT'S WHY THE DEFENSIVE

MARRIAGE ACT WAS PASSED TO

DEFINE WHAT A MARRIAGE IS.

BECAUSE THERE ARE ALL KINDS

OF BENEFITS, ALL KINDS OF

PRIVILEGES, ALL KINDS OF

RIGHTS, ALL KINDS OF

RESPONSIBILITIES THAT ATTACH

TO MARRIAGE.

THERE APPEARS TO BE NO END

TO THE WAYS THE GOVERNMENT

CAN WASTE YOUR TEAR

DOLLARS. YOUR-- TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: THE INTERNAL

REVENUE SERVICE IS

APOLOGIZING TO TAXPAYERS FOR

WASTING MONEY ON A VIDEO

PARITY OF STAR TREK.

I.R.S. EMPLOYEES MADE THE

VIDEO IN-HOUSE FOR ABOUT

$60,000.

ACTING COMMISSIONER STEVEN

MILLER SAYS THE VIDEO WAS

MADE THREE YEARS AGO FOR

TRAINING PURPOSES.

BUT CRITICS SAY IT DOES NOT

HAVE ANY TRAINING VALUE

WHATSOEVER.

BACK IN RUSSIA, I DREAMED

SOME DAY I WOULD BE RICH AND

FAMOUS.

ME, TOO, THAT'S WHY I

BECAME A PUBLIC SERVANT.

Lee: MILLER SAYS

TRAINING PROCEDURES HAVE

CHANGED IN RECENT YEARS, AND

THAT THE VIDEO WOULD NOT BE

MADE TODAY.

PAT?

Pat: WELL, IT IS

SHOCKING, WHAT THEY'RE

SPENDING MONEY ON.

SENATOR COBURN BROUGHT OUT

SOMETHING AS IT WAS ON THE

NEWS YESTERDAY, ABOUT

THEY'RE STUDYING DUCKS, TO

SEE WHETHER DUCKS CAN BREED,

AND WHAT IT TAKES FOR A MALE

DUCK TO PERFORM SEX ACTS.

IT IS GOING TO COST YOU

$300,000 OR $400,000 TO FIND

OUT.

HOW NUTTY CAN YOU GET?

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE IN

TROUBLE.

THE REPUBLICANS HAVE BROUGHT

INITIATIVE AFTER INITIATIVE

AFTER INITIATIVE TO SOFTEN

THE EFFECT OF THE

SEQUESTER.

SOMETHING TO OPEN THE

FEDERAL PARKS, SOMETHING TO

BEEF UP HOMELAND SECURITY,

ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE

BOARD.

AND IN EVERY SINGLE CASE,

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE VOTED

THEM DOWN.

WHY?

BECAUSE THEY WANT THIS

SEQUESTER TO HURT, AND THEN

THEY'LL COME BACK AND SAY

SEE WHAT THOSE REPUBLICANS

DID TO YOU?

THIS IS HORRIBLE.

WHAT ABOUT AMERICA?

WHAT IS GOOD FOR AMERICA?

SHOULDN'T WE HAVE ACCESS TO

THE FEDERAL PARKS?

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE IN

CONGRESS WHO ARE WILLING TO

CHANGE THAT SEQUESTER TO

MAKE IT A LITTLE BIT EASIER

OR SLIDE SOME MONEY FROM ONE

POCKET TO ANOTHER.

WHY NOT?

NO.

NO.

NO.

THE DEMOCRATS DON'T WANT

THAT.

AND HARRY REID, IN THE

SENATE, REFUSES TO BRING

THOSE THINGS UP FOR A VOTE.

YOU TALK ABOUT HORRIBLE.

WHY DOESN'T SOMEBODY START

SCREAMING TO SAY WHAT IS

WRONG WITH YOU GUYS?

WELL, THERE IS A HUMAN CRY

GOING OUT FROM SOMALI GUARDS

WHO HAVE BIG BUCKS IN CYPRUS

BANKS THAT ARE NOW GOING TO

GET CON CON FIFI

CONFISKATED OR SHIFTED.

AND LEE HAS MORE ABOUT WHY

OTHER GOVERNMENTS ARE GOING

TO BE DOING TO RAID BANK

ACCOUNTS.

Lee: GOVERNMENTS MADE

RAID SAVINGS ACCOUNTS IN

SPAIN, ITALY, AND OTHER

NATIONS IN ORDER TO SAVE THE

EURO.

THAT'S ALREADY HAPPENING, OF

COURSE, IN CYPRUS, THE

GOVERNMENT THERE PLANS TO

TAKE MONEY OUT OF SAVINGS

ACCOUNTS TO HELP SAVE THAT

COUNTRY'S BANKING SYSTEM.

AND IT COULD SERVE AS A

MODEL TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

THE LONDON TELEGRAPH SAYING

THEY BELIEVE THE SUCCESS IN

CYPRUS SHOWS IT CAN BE DONE

ELSEWHERE.

NORTH KOREA IS REDDING IT'S

MILITARY FOR OFFENSIVE

ATTACKS ON U.S. BASIS.

IT IS CALLING FOR UTILITY TO

BE PREPARED TO ATTACK U.S.

BASIS ON GUAM, AMERICA, AND

SOUTH KOREA.

RECENTLY NORTH KOREA SAID IT

WOULD LAUNCH A NUCLEAR

ATTACK AGAINST THE U.S. AND

SOUTH KOREA BECAUSE OF

SANCTIONS AGAINST ITS

NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

WHERE DO YOU THINK THIS IS

HEADED, PAT?

Pat: WELL, IT IS A LOT

OF BLUSTER.

I SUPPOSE AS A GREAT NATION,

WE'VE GOT TO GRIN AND BEAR

IT AND LET THEM BLUSTER.

I REMEMBER THE WORDS OF CURT

LAMAY, WHO WAS HEAD OF

STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND,

SPEAKING OF VIETNAM.

HE SAID WE OUGHT TO BOMB

THEM BACK INTO THE STONE

AGE.

I THINK SOMEHOW WE OUGHT TO

PASS THE WORD TO MR. UN,

THAT IF THEY SO MUCH AS LIFT

A FINGER AGAINST THE UNITED

STATES, AND ONE BULLET COMES

ACROSS THE BORDER AGAINST

ONE OF OUR SERVICEMEN, WE

WILL FLATTEN PYONGYANG.

I THINK IT IS TIME THEY

SHOULD REALIZE THEY ARE A

PIP SQUEAK NATION THAT HAS A

COUPLE OF NUKES, AND THEY'RE

MAKING A LOT OF NOISE.

BUT THEY LIKE TO DO THAT.

THEY HAVE HELD THEIR PEOPLE

IN BONDAGE.

IT IS A DESPICABLE MISUSE OF

HUMANITY THAT TAKES PLACE IN

NORTH KOREA.

BUT INSTEAD OF OF LOOKING

AFTER THE PEOPLE AND FEEDING

THEM, THEY FEED THE

MILITARY, AND THEY FEED THEM

PROPAGANDA AS WELL.

Lee: PAT, THE U.S. IS

ARMING SOME OF THE SYRIAN

REBELS WHO ARE FIGHTING TO

BRING DOWN THAT GOVERNMENT.

NOW SOME OF THOSE SAME

GROUPS COULD BE A THREAT TO

INVADE ISRAEL.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: TWO YEARS OF

SYRIAN CIVIL WAR HAVE KILLED

70,000.

NOW FIGHTING THREATENS TO

SPILL OVER INTO SURROUNDING

COUNTRIES, INCLUDING

ISRAEL.

SYRIA IS DETERIORATING

FROM ANY POINT OF VIEW.

THE ORGANS FROM THE REGIME

ARE TOTALLY DYSFUNCTIONAL.

AND THE LARGE AREAS TODAY

PRAY FOR ALL OF THE

MALLITIONS.

ROW THE SUNNI-BACKED

OPPOSITION AND JIHADIS COULD

BE JUST AS BAD.

BOTH ARE VICIOUS.

BOTH ARE ABUSING HUMAN

RIGHTS.

BOTH ARE ABUSING WOMEN

BECAUSE THIS IS THE COUNTRY

WE LIVE IN.

Reporter: THE FIGHTING

IN SYRIA HAS REACHED ALL THE

WAY TO ISRAEL BORDERS.

BELOW THIS RIDGE, THEY HAVE

BEEN FIGHTING FOR CONTROL

OVER THIS VILLAGE.

JUST OVER THE HILL IS

SHOAB.

HE TEACHES THERAPEUTIC

HORSEBACK RIDING HERE.

IT IS ONLY ABOUT A HALF A

MILE FROM THE BORDER OF

SYRIA.

WE HEAR BOMBS.

WE HEAR SNIPERS.

WE HEAR THEM ALL OF THE

TIME.

ACTUALLY, THE LIFE IS

GOING ON.

IT HAS TO CONTINUE.

Reporter: RECENTLY,

REBEL FORCES KIDNAPPED 21

U.N. PEACEKEEPERS, HOLDING

THEM THREE DAYS IN THIS

VILLAGE.

WHILE THEY WERE RELEASED

UNHARMED, THEIR 40-YEAR

MISSION HERE IS IN

SHAMBLES.

SEVERAL COUNTRIES HAVE

WITHDRAWN THEIR TROOPS, AND

OTHERS MAY FOLLOW,

POTENTIALLY LEAVING A

DANGEROUS AREA IN CHAOS.

JIHADIS RELEASED THIS VIDEO

BLAMING ASSAD AND HIS FATHER

BEFORE HIM, FOR NOT FIRING A

SINGLE SHOT ON THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS IN 40 YEARS.

BUT MIDDLE EAST EXPERT,

DR. MORTIKI SADAR SAYS THAT

IS NOT ALL.

AFTER THEY TAKE CARE OF

SYRIA, THEY'LL TAKE OUT

NAFALLA, AND TO KILL HIM,

AND THIS WILL BE ON THE WAY

TO JERUSALEM, TO LIBERATE

JERUSALEM FROM THE JEWS.

Reporter: THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS SITS 40 MILES FROM

DAMASCUS.

ISRAEL TOOK IT DURING THE

1967 SIX-DAY WAR.

BUT RESIDENT HEN MORTIKI, A

VETERAN OF THREE ISRAELI

WARS, SAYS THAT COULD BE

CHANGING.

THEY'LL INFILTRATE.

THEY'RE CARRY OUT A TERROR

ATTACK.

IT IS A QUESTION OF TIME

BECAUSE THERE IS NO LEADER,

NO AUTHORITY, NO LAW THERE.

EVERYBODY IS DOING WHAT IS

IN THEIR OWN HEAD.

Reporter: SO WHILE

ISRAEL WANTS TO MAINTAIN

QUIET ON THE BORDER, THE

CHAOS FORCES ISRAEL TO BE

READY FOR WAR.

CHRIS MITCHELL, THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS.

Lee: BACK HERE AT HOME,

IT SEEMS LIKE OLDMAN WINTER

JUST WON'T QUIT WITH ANOTHER

MAJOR STORM HITTING THE

MIDWEST AND EAST COAST.

FINALLY IT IS EXPECTED TO

TAPER OFF TODAY.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: IT STARTED IN

THE MIDWEST, WITH NEAR

WHITEOUT CONDITIONS IN

INDIANA AND ILLINOIS, AND IN

ST. LOUIS, 12.4 INCHES, THE

MOST RECORDED SNOWFALL ON A

MARCH DAY EVER.

NOW FAMILIES ACROSS THE

REGION ARE BEGINNING TO DIG

OUT.

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE IT

IS THE END OF MARCH, BUT I

ACTUALLY LOVE IT.

I'M READY FOR IT TO

QUIT.

Reporter: AFTER THE

MIDWEST, THE STORM HEADED

EAST, CREATING ICY

CONDITIONS ON THE ROADS FROM

PENNSYLVANIA TO NEW YORK,

AND ALSO IN VIRGINIA AND

WASHINGTON, D.C.

IN MANY PLACES, HAVOC, AND A

DIFFERENT KIND OF SPRING

BREAK.

I LIKE WINTER BREAK.

Reporter: FOR THOSE OF

YOU WHO TRUSTED THE GROUND

HOG, HE BLEW IT, DIDN'T HE.

WHILE WE ARE GETTING HEAVY,

WET SNOW ACROSS THE

NORTHEAST, MANY LOCATIONS

WILL NOT BE GETTING OVER SIX

INCHES.

Reporter: IN CENTRAL

FLORIDA, WEATHER OF ANOTHER

KIND.

A SYSTEM BRINGING 80-MILE AN

HOUR WINDS.

IT WAS THE WORST STORM I

HAVE EVER SEEN.

Reporter: THE WINDS

HAVE LEFT TREES STREWN

ACROSS YARDS AND EVEN HOMES,

MAKING FOR A MAJOR CLEANUP

DAY TODAY.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Lee: THE MORE FRIENDS

YOU HAVE, THE LONGER YOU'RE

LIKELY TO LIVE.

A NEW STUDY OUT OF THE U.K.

FINDS SOCIAL ISOLATION

INCREASES THE RISK OF EARLY

DEATH IN OLDER PEOPLE.

THE STUDY LOOKED AT 6500

FOLKS OVER THE AGE OF 52.

RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT

SENIORS WHO WERE NOT ABLE TO

SEE FRIENDS OR FAMILY

REGULARLY ARE 50% MORE

LIKELY TO DIE PREMATURELY.

THEY SAY GETTING OUT AND

BEING AROUND OTHER PEOPLE

HELPS WITH FEELINGS OF

LONELINESS, AND IT WILL HELP

INCREASE LIFE EXPECTANCY.

PAT, THERE LIKES LIKE THEIR

IS A BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE HERE

AT WORK, THAT MAN WAS MADE

FOR FELLOWSHIP, WITH GOD AND

OTHER PEOPLE.

Pat: I'M SITTING NEXT

TO A LOVELY LADY WHO DECIDES

SHE WANTS TO LIVE TO 100

BECAUSE SHE HAS SO MANY

CHILDREN.

Terry: I CAN'T AFFORD

TO DIE.

Pat: KEEP ON ADOPTING,

SO YOU MAKE SURE YOU'LL LIVE

LONGER.

AT LEAST THREE OR FOUR MORE

KIDS.

Terry: I THINK THERE IS

A LOT OF TRUTH TO THAT.

WE REALLY DO, YOU KNOW, GAIN

SOME SOCIALIZATION SKILLS

AND GOOD HEALTH, AND MENTAL

STIMULATION FROM ALL OF

THAT.

GOOD NEWS.

MAKE FRIENDS.

Pat: MAKE FRIENDS AND

ADOPT KIDS FROM THE

UKRAINE.

LOTS AND LOTS OF THEM.

Terry: I'M FOR THAT.

UP NEXT, THE SIDE OF TEXAS

A&M THAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW

ABOUT.

AS AN AGGY, YOU ARE PART

OF SOMETHING BIGGER THAN

YOURSELF.

THAT IS SORT OUR MODEL.

WHAT WE DO AT BREAK-AWAY, IT

IS ALL ABOUT GLORIFYING

GOD.

Terry: SEE WHAT MAKES

10,000 AGGIES SHOW UP FOR A

GATHERING.

AND LATER ON, MEET THE PILOT

WHO SURVIVED THIS

CATASTROPHIC PLANE CRASH.

Pat: WELL, A FEW KIDS

GET TOGETHER IN A DORM ROOM

AND THEY STUDY THE BIBLE.

WELL, THAT'S NICE.

BIG DEAL.

WELL, 25 YEARS AGO THAT'S

WHAT HAPPENED AT TEXAS A&M.

AND THEN SUDDENLY THAT

LITTLE BIBLE STUDY EXPANDED

TO 10,000 STUDENTS.

ONE FIFTH OF THE ENTIRE

STUDENT BODY.

AND THE BIBLE STUDY IS

CALLED "BREAK-AWAY."

SO WE ASKED OUR REPORTER,

DAVID BRODY, IF HE WOULD BE

GOOD ENOUGH TO GO DOWN TO

TEXAS A&M TO SEE WHAT IN THE

WORLD WAS GOING ON.

David: THIS IS A

TYPICAL TUESDAY NIGHT IN

COLLEGE STATION.

THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS MEET

AT THE TEXAS A&M BASKETBALL

ARENA FOR WORSHIP, PRAYER,

AND BIBLE TEACHING.

I WENT TO BREAK-AWAY ON

THE FIRST TUESDAY NIGHT, AND

IT COMPLETELY ROCKED MY

WORLD.

I HAD NEVER IN MY LIFE JUST

INSTANTLY FELT THAT CLOSE TO

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

IT WAS JUST -- I MEAN, IT

WAS AMAZING.

Reporter: BREAK-AWAY

MINISTRIES IS A

NON-DENOMINATIONAL BIBLE

STUDY.

IT'S MISSION IS TO INTRODUCE

COLLEGE KIDS TO JESUS

CHRIST, AND CALL THEM TO

WORK WITH HIM FOR A

LIFETIME.

IT IS HAVING WHAT YOU CALL A

DOMINO EFFECT.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS

I COULD LIST OUT FOR YOU

THAT THE LORD IS DOING HERE,

AMONG THIS WHOLE ROT

RETROSPECTIVE LOOK OF WHAT

HAS BEEN GOING ON HERE.

I CAN'T EVEN DESCRIBE IT

FULLY WHAT IS HAPPENING

HERE.

LIKE I SAID, WE'RE CHANGING

THE WORLD ON THIS CAMPUS.

Reporter: YOU KNOW THE

SAYING THAT EVERYTHING IS

BIGGER IN TEXAS?

WELL, IT INCLUDES THE BIBLE

STUDIES AS WELL.

10,000 PEOPLE HAVE SHOWN UP

AT THESE BIBLE STUDIES AT

TEXAS A&M CAMPUS.

THAT IS ONE FIFTH OF THE

ENTIRE STUDENT POPULATION.

BREAK-AWAY WASN'T ALWAYS

THIS BIG.

IT BEGAN IN 1989, WHEN 12

A&M STUDENTS MET IN AN

APARTMENT, TO PRAY AND SEEK

TO KNOW GOD THROUGH HIS

WORD.

BIBLE STUDY GREW OVER THE

YEARS, AND NOW STUDENTS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE

TALKING ABOUT IT.

I MET A LOT OF DIFFERENT

STUDENTS FROM DIFFERENT

CAMPUSES ACROSS THE

STATION.

I TOLD THEM I'M FROM TEXAS

A&M, AND THEY KNOW ABOUT

BREAK-AWAY.

AND THEY SAY, YOU GO TO

BREAK A-AWAY, AND I SAY

YEAH, I VOLUNTEER THERE.

JOHN WANTS TO BRING SOME

PHER ARSEVERITY OF US.

AND HE SAYS IF YOU LOVE THE

WORLD, IT WILL BE TWO

OPPOSITE THINGS, TO OPPOSING

THINGS.

YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH.

Reporter: STEWART SAYS

BREAK-AWAY MINISTRIES IS NOT

DESIGNED TO REPLACE THE

LOCAL CHURCH.

LEADERS ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO

FIND A CHURCH HOME AND GET

TOGETHER ON TUESDAY NIGHT

FOR CAMPUS COMMUNITY.

MANY STUDENTS KEEP COMING

BACK BECAUSE THEY SAY

STEWART'S TEACHINGS REALLY

CONNECT WITH THEM ON A HEART

LEVEL.

LIKE HIS SERIES ON STAYING

PURE BEFORE MARRIAGE.

HE BROKE THE PSALM AND

RELATED IT INTO EVERY ASPECT

OF DATING, FROM THE VERY

FIRST TIME YOU MEET ALL THE

WAY UNTIL MARRIAGE AND

BEYOND.

AND HE JUST ELABORATED ON

HOW IT WAS THE CHRISTIAN

EXAMPLE THAT GOD HAD GIVEN

US TO BE ABLE TO FOLLOW IN

THE BIBLE.

Reporter: NO MATTER HOW

MUCH THEY LIKE THE TEACHING

OR ENJOY THE WORSHIP, OR HOW

BIG THE CROWDS GET, STUDENTS

TOLD ME THE SAME THING: GOD

ALONE IS DOING SOMETHING

SPECIAL ON THEIR CAMPUS.

THERE IS IS SOMETHING TO

BE SAID ABOUT BREAK-AWAY.

IT IS LIO, LIKE, GOD WERE

TO MOVE AWAY FROM

BREAK-AWAY, IT WOULD CEASE

TO EXIST.

BEN SAYS WE HAVE 10,000 THAT

COME TO BREAK-AWAY, AND

40,000 WHO DON'T, AND WE

HAVE TO REACH OUT.

Reporter: LAST YEAR

STUDENTS RAISED MORE THAN

$100,000 TO RESCUE CHILDREN

FROM SEX TRAFFICKING.

THESE STUDENTS SAY THERE IS

NO STOPPING WHAT GOD CAN DO

THROUGH THEM, AND THEY PLAN

TO TAKE THE GOSPEL TO THE

ENDS OF THE EARTH.

AS AN AGGIE, YOU ARE A

PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER

THAN YOURSELF.

THAT IS SORT OF OUR MOTTO.

IT IS HOW WE TREAT EACH

OTHER.

IT IS HOW WE LIVE OUR LIVES

DAY TO DAY.

AND SO FOR BREAK-AWAY TO BE

SUCH A PROMINENT PART, IT

ALL MAKES SENSE.

WHAT WE DO AT BREAK-AWAY IS

ALL ABOUT GLORIFYING GOD.

IT IS ABOUT SPREADING THE

GOSPEL AND SHOWING THAT

JESUS MOVES AND HE LOVES

EVERYONE.

Reporter: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, IN COLLEGE

STATION, TEXAS.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS IN

THE LATTER DAYS, I WILL POUR

OUT MY SPIRIT AMONG ALL

FLESH, AND YOUR SONS AND

DAUGHTERS WILL PROPHESY.

YOUR OLD MAN WILL DREAM

DREAMS.

WHEN I POUR OUT MY SPIRIT

UPON ALL FLESH.

THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING.

WE'RE SEEING AN OUTPOURING

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THIS IS ONE MANIFESTATION IN

THE LATTER DAYS.

HOW ENCOURAGING, AND HOW

INTERESTING.

THOSE AGGIES -- GO AGGIES!

Terry: THAT IS QUITE A

STORY.

WONDERFUL.

COMING UP, A PILOT SURVIVES

A PLANE CRASH, BUT HIS

FAMILY DOES NOT.

I ASKED THE NURSE, WHERE

IS KELLY?

WHERE IS LAUREN?

WHERE IS TARA?

WHERE ARE THEY?

THEY SHOULD BE HERE.

AND SHE SAID, THEY'RE IN

HEAVEN, AND THAT WAS THE

WORST DAY OF MY LIFE.

Terry: HERE THE

QUESTION THAT GAVE THIS

GRIEVING MAN A REASON TO GO

ON LIVING, AFTER THIS.

Terry: JOE TOWNSEND HAD

TO FACE SOMETHING SO

PROFOUND, IT SEEMED

INSURMOUNTABLE.

HIS WIFE AND TWO DAUGHTERS

ALL DIED IN A PLANE CRASH.

JOE, HIMSELF, WAS THE ONLY

SURVIVOR.

WORST OF ALL, HE WAS ALSO

THE PILOT.

FLIGHT...FROM THE TIME HE

WAS A LITTLE BOY, IT WAS

WHAT JOE TOWNSEND DREAMED

OF.

WHEN HE BECAME A PILOT FOR A

COMMERCIAL AIRLINE, JOE WAS

LIVING THE DREAM.

ONE WEEKEND JOE WAS FLYING

HIS WIFE, KELLY, AND TWO

YOUNG DAUGHTERS, LAURA AND

TARA, HOME FROM A FAMILY

VACATION.

SHORTLY AFTER TAKEOFF, THEIR

SMALL PLANE DEVELOPED ENGINE

TROUBLE AND LOST POWER.

SIGNAL ONE TO 9-1-1.

Reporter: VOLUNTEER

FIRE CHIEF SHELDON WAS THE

FIRST TO ARRIVE AT THE SCENE

OF THE CRASH.

WHEN WE FIRST PULLED UP

ON THE SCENE, WE DIDN'T

REALIZE THERE WAS GOING TO

BE SURVIVORS.

IT APPEARED IT TOOK A

NOSEDIVE AND THE ENGINE AND

THE INSTRUMENT GAUGES AND

THE DASHES ALL ROLLED BACK

INTO JOE'S FACE AND HIS

TRESCHEST AND ALL AND WAS

ACTUALLY LAYING ON TOP OF

HIM.

SOMEBODY HEARD A CHILD.

A CHILD WAS IN THE BACK

BEHIND THE PILOT.

IT WAS STILL ALIVE AND

STARTED CRYING, SO WE

STARTED TEARING THE PLANE

APART BY HAND.

IN THE PROCESS, WE REALIZED

THE PILOT WAS STILL ALIVE.

Reporter: ON IMPACT,

JOE'S FOREHEAD HAD COLLIDED

WITH THE INSTRUMENT PANEL.

THE NOB BROKE THROUGH HIS

SKULL, DAMAGING THE AREAS OF

THE BRAIN THAT CONTROL MOTOR

SKILLS AND BALANCE.

JOE COULD NO LONGER SEE OR

MOVE.

BUT GETTING ANYONE OUT OF

THE PLANE SAFELY WAS A

CHALLENGE THAT DAY.

THE FIRST THING I NOTICED

WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE TRUCK

WAS THE SMELL OF PLANE

FUEL.

IT WAS JUST EVERYWHERE.

WE HAD A FRON FRONT COMING

IN FROM THE NORTHWEST,

POPPING, AND WE WERE SO

AFRAID THAT IT WOULD SPARK A

FIRE.

AT THAT POINT, A FIRE WOULD

HAVE PUT EVERYBODY OUT.

GOD HAD HIS HAND IN EVERY

BIT OF IT.

BECAUSE WE NEVER WOULD HAVE

GOTTEN ANY OF THEM OUT

WITHOUT THAT.

WE GOT HIM LOADED IN THE

AMBULANCE.

HE WAS HOLDING GOD'S HAND

THEN, SURE ENOUGH.

I HONESTLY DIDN'T THINK THE

GUY WOULD EVER MAKE IT, AS

BAD AS HE WAS.

Reporter: JOE'S

INJURIES WERE CATASTROPHIC.

HIS LEFT LEG WAS BROKEN IN

THREE PLACES, AND HIS RIGHT

ARM WAS DEEPLY CUT FROM

REACHING OUT TO SHIELD HIS

DAUGHTER.

DURING THE CRASH, JOE'S

ANKLE SPLIT APART,

SEPARATING HIS FEET FROM HIS

LEG.

BOTH HIS KNEECAPS WERE

BROKEN AND HE HAD INTERNAL

INJURIES.

WHEN WE HAVE BAD CALLS

LIKE THAT, THE FIRST THING

THAT GOES THROUGH MY MIND,

GOD, BE WITH THEM, AND HELP

THEM, BUT MOST OF ALL HELP

US.

WE NEED ALL OF THE DIRECTION

FROM GOD THAT WE CAN GET IN

SITUATIONS LIKE THAT.

THERE WAS A LOT OF PRAYING

GOING ON THAT MORNING.

Reporter: JOE AND HIS

YOUNGEST DAUGHTER, TARA,

WERE RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL,

AND TARA DIED IN SURGERY.

JOE WAS GIVEN MULTIPLE BLOOD

TRANSFUSIONS THAT CAUSED

CARDIAC ARREST.

AND THEN HE SUFFERED A

STROKE.

I ASKED THE NURSE, WHERE

IS KELLY, WHERE IS TARA, AND

WHERE IS LAURA?

THEY SHOULD BE HERE.

AND SHE SAID, THEY'RE IN

HEAVEN.

I SAID YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

Reporter: THE NEXT

MORNING, FAMILY MEMBERS

CONFIRMED THE NEWS.

AND THAT WAS THE WORST

DAY OF MY LIFE.

Reporter: JOE LEARNED

THAT HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTERS

HAD ALREADY BEEN BURIED.

HE NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO SAY

GOOD-BYE.

I SOBBED SO HARD.

THE SOBBING WAS LIKE A KNIFE

WAS IN MY CHEST, IN MY

HEART, TURNING.

AND I FINALLY CRIED OUT,

LORD, HELP ME.

AND AMAZINGLY, 30 SECONDS

AFTER CRYING OUT, COMPLETE

PEACE.

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

LATER, HE WAS TRANSFERRED TO

ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL'S

REHABILITATION PROCESS.

JOE'S VISION STARTED COMING

BACK, AND JOE STARTED THE

DAUNTING TASK TO START TO

WALK AGAIN.

EVEN AS MESSED UP AS I

WAS, WHERE I COULDN'T DO

ANYTHING FOR MYSELF, I WOULD

NEVER GIVE UP AND ALWAYS HAD

HOPE.

Reporter: DURING HIS

RECOVERY, JOE HAD A LOT OF

VISITORS, INCLUDING HIS

NEIGHBOUR, MARK, WHO WAS A

STRONG CHRISTIAN.

HE ASKED MARK A PIERCING

QUESTION.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE

KELLY AND THE GIRLS AGAIN.

I SAID YES.

AND HE SAID, THERE IS AN

EASY WAY TO DO THAT.

ACCEPT JESUS INTO YOUR HEART

AND YOU'LL SEE HIM AGAIN

WHEN THAT TIME COMES.

ROMANS 10: 9 IS THE

SCRIPTURE HE QUOTED.

IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART

AND CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH

THAT JESUS IS LORD, YOU WILL

BE SAVED.

SO THAT'S WHAT I DID.

Reporter: BUT THE TOUGH

TIMES WEREN'T OVER.

JOE DEALT WITH CONSTANT

FRUSTRATION AND A DEPRESSION

SO DEEP IT OVERWHELMED HIM.

I WOULD PRAY FOR THE LORD

TO TAKE ME.

AND I DID THAT FOR ABOUT A

COUPLE OF WEEKS.

AND AFTER A COUPLE OF WEEKS,

I'M STILL HERE.

AND I SAID, WELL, OKAY,

LORD, IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

TAKE ME, THEN LEAVE ME HERE

AND I'LL TRY TO DO THE BEST

I CAN.

MY NEWFOUND FAITH HELPED ME

TO GET THROUGH THE THINGS --

THE TRIALS THAT I HAD TO GO

THROUGH.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

YEAR, JOE WENT FROM USING A

WHEELCHAIR TO A WALKER TO A

CANE.

EVENTUALLY HE WAS ABLE TO

WALK AGAIN ON HIS OWN.

I FEEL THAT MY BODY

HEALED BECAUSE OF MY FAITH

AND ALSO MY WILLINGNESS TO

FIGHT, TO NEVER GIVE UP.

Reporter: TODAY JOE HAS

REMARRIED AND HAS A FULL

LIFE.

HE HOPES TO FLY A PLANE

AGAIN SOME DAY.

JOE SAYS GOD GIVES HIM THE

STRENGTH TO CARRY ON.

THERE IS A POEM,

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND.

I'VE HAD SOME TOUGH TIMES,

AND THROUGH THE ADVERSITY

THAT I HAD TO FACE, I LEANED

ON THE LORD TO CARRY ME.

AND THAT'S WHEN HE WAS THERE

FOR ME.

Terry: LIFE CAN DEAL US

SOME PRETTY INCREDIBLE

BLOWS, CAN'T IT?

AND IT WASN'T JOE'S FAULT

THAT THE ENGINE ON THAT

PLANE WENT OUT.

HE DID THE BEST HE COULD,

AND MAYBE SOME OF YOU ARE IN

SITUATIONS RIGHT NOW THAT

ARE CAUSING YOU TO FACE

UNBELIEVABLE GRIEF, THAT

KIND OF EMPTINESS AND LOSS

THAT JUST MAKES YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU CAN'T HARDLY TAKE

IN ANOTHER BREATH.

I LOVE WHAT JOE DID IN THE

MIDST OF THAT.

YOU KNOW, HE COULD HAVE

STAYED IN THAT PLACE OF

FEELING SORRY FOR HIMSELF.

BUT HE CALLED UPON THE NAME

OF THE LORD.

IT WAS A NEIGHBOR WHO

BROUGHT THAT WORD TO HIM,

AND I WOULD ASK YOU TODAY,

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE PEACE

FROM WHATEVER IT IS THAT

PLAGUING YOU?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE

COMFORT, DEEP, DEEP IN YOUR

HEART, IN THAT PLACE WHERE

THERE SEEMS TO BE NO REST?

WHERE THERE IS SUCH

EMPTINESS, SUCH A DEEP GULF,

THAT THERE IS ONLY SADNESS

IN YOUR LIFE.

JESUS SAID HE CAME TO SET

THE CAPTIVE FREE.

AND HE SAID HE CAME SO THAT

YOU AND I COULD HAVE LIFE

AND HAVE IT ABUNDANTLY.

NOT PATCHED UP.

NOT PUT BACK TOGETHER, BUT

AN ABUNDANT LIFE.

HOW DOES THAT WORK?

HOW DO WE DO THAT?

FIRST YOU DO WHAT JOE DID IN

THAT HOSPITAL BED.

YOU SAY, JESUS, I WANT TO

KNOW YOU.

I WANT TO BE YOUR CHILD.

I WANT YOU TO BE MY DAD.

I WANT TO BE IDENTIFIED AS

YOURS.

I WANT YOU TO COME INTO MY

HEART AND MY LIFE.

I WANT YOU TO FORGIVE MY

SINS AND GIVE ME THAT NEW

BEGINNING THAT I'VE HEARD

ABOUT.

AND THEN I WANT MORE.

I WANT YOU TO ENVELOPE ME.

I WANT YOU TO DEFINE ME.

THE BIBLE SAYS THIS ABOUT

THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH

SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

THAT'S THE ONE DEFINITION IT

HAS.

BUT THEN IT SAYS THOU, GOD,

WILL KEEP HIM IN PERFECT

PEACE WHO'S MIND IS STAYED

ON THEE BECAUSE HE TRUSTS IN

ME.

YOU CANNOT TRUST THE WORLD.

YOU CANNOT TRUST PEOPLE,

CIRCUMSTANCES.

THINGS HAPPEN.

YOU KNOW, SITUATIONS COME

AND GO, BUT GOD IS ALWAYS

THERE.

ALWAYS THE SAME, YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

THERE REALLY IS NO OTHER

PLACE YOU CAN GO TO FIND

COMFORT, TO FIND PEACE, TO

FIND STRENGTH TO GO ON WHEN

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU CAN'T.

AND TODAY THAT'S WHAT JESUS

IS OFFERING YOU, THE ABILITY

TO GO ON.

CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE

LORD.

LET'S JUST PRAY TOGETHER

RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, I'M PRAYING RIGHT

NOW IN AGREEMENT WITH MY

BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO ARE

HURTING AND FIND SITUATIONS

OVERWHELMING IN THEIR LIVES,

WHO FEEL HOPELESS AND WHO

NEED YOU.

JESUS, MA MANIFEST YOURSELF

IN THEIR MIDST, LORD.

BE THEIR STRONG TOWER, THE

PLACE THEY RUN INTO WHEN

THEY'RE AFRAID, WHEN THEY'RE

HOPELESS, WHEN ALL SEEMS

LOST AND EMPTY.

JESUS, BECOME THEIR

REDEEMER, THEIR SAVIOR,

THEIR ALL IN ALL.

TEACH THEM YOUR WAYS.

HEAL THEIR HEARTS.

GIVE HOPE AND A NEW

BEGINNING, LORD.

FILL THEM WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT TODAY.

LEAD THEM THROUGH YOUR

WORD.

I PRAY THAT YOU BRING

FELLOWSHIP AROUND THEM,

LORD.

PEOPLE WHO WILL ENCOURAGE

AND LOVE AND SUPPORT AND

LIFT THEIR ARMS UP, UNTIL

THEY'RE STRONG ENOUGH FOR

YOU TO LIFT THEM IN WORSHIP

AND IN THANKSGIVING FOR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE TODAY.

IN JESUS' NAME WE PRAY,

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE PRAYED WITH ME, IF

YOU'VE INVITED JESUS INTO

YOUR LIFE FOR THE FIRST

TIME, MAYBE YOU'VE NEVER

DONE THAT BEFORE, WE WANT TO

SEND YOU A PACKET CALLED "A

NEW DAY."

PAT PUT THIS TOGETHER, AND

IT IS FILLED WITH WONDERFUL

INFORMATION FROM THE LORD.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU GROW IN THIS

RELATIONSHIP?

WE'LL SEND THAT OUT TO YOU.

IT IS FREE.

AND WE WANT TO SEND YOU

THIS, IF YOU'RE SUFFERING

FROM GRIEF, THIS LITTLE

PACKET CALLED "LIVING

THROUGH GRIEF."

GOD WANTS TO BE YOUR ANCHOR,

YOUR STABILITY TODAY.

YOU CAN HAVE BOTH OF THESE

BY CALLING THAT TOLL-FREE

NUMBER, 1-800-759-0700.

THERE IS A FRIEND ON THE

OTHER END OF THE LINE WHO

HAS FOUND PEACE AND COMFORT

IN A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS CHRIST.

SO CALL NOW.

PAT?

Pat: THANKS, TERRY.

WONDERFUL.

STILL AHEAD, WE'VE GOT YOUR

E-MAIL.

JEREMY SAYS, "ISN'T ANGER A

SIN?

IF SO, WHY DOES THE BIBLE

SAY BE ANGRY AND DON'T

SIN?"

WE'LL TACKLE THAT QUESTION

AND MORE WHEN WE "BRING IT

ON."

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

PRESIDENT OBAMA MARKED THE

FIRST NIGHT OF PASSOVER WITH

A SADER DINNER AT THE WHITE

HOUSE.

IT IS A TRADITION MR. OBAMA

STARTED WITH SOME OF HIS

JEWISH STAFFERS IN 2008.

IT BEGINS PASSOVER, WHEN

JEWS CELEBRATE BEING FREED

FROM SLAVERY IN ANCIENT

EGYPT.

DURING HIS TRIP TO ISRAEL,

THE PRESIDENT SAID HE

CONTINUES TO HOLD THE SADERS

SO HIS DAUGHTERS CAN

EXPERIENCE IT.

EGYPT'S PROSECUTORS HAVE

ISSUED ARREST WARRANTS TO

THOSE WHO OPPOSED THE

BROTHERHOOD.

A SPOKESMAN FOR THE

OPPOSITION SAYS THEY FEEL

THREATENED AND EXPECT THE

WORST.

THE OPPOSITION CHARGES THAT

EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT MOHAMMED

MORSI AND THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD HAVE FAILED TO

TAKE ON EGYPT'S MOST

DIFFICULT PROBLEMS AND ARE

SIMPLY TRYING TO GAIN A

MONOPOLY ON POWER.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST AT CBN NEWS BY GOING

OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Terry: IT'S TIME TO

ANSWER SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM JEREMY, WHO SAYS, "IS

ANGER REALLY A SIN?

AND IF YES, THEN WHY DOES

THE BIBLE SAY BE ANGRY AND

DO NOT SIN?"

Pat: OKAY, JEREMY.

JESUS SAW THINGS GOING ON IN

THE TEMPLE.

HE WAS ANGRY.

HE SAW PEOPLE TAKING

ADVANTAGE OF POOR

WORSHIPPERS, AND HE WAS

ANGRY.

HE OVERTHREW THE TABLES OF

THE MONEY CHANGERS AND DROVE

THEM OUT WITH WHIPS.

THAT'S ANGER.

DON'T SIN.

WHAT IS THE SIN?

THE SIN IS HAVING A GRUDGE,

HOLDING A GRUDGE.

THE BIBLE SAYS DON'T LET THE

SUN GO DOWN ON YOUR WRATH.

YOU GET MAD, BUT YOU GIVE IT

UP.

YOU DON'T STAY MAD.

AND YOU DON'T HOLD A GRUDGE

AGAINST THE PERSON.

AND YOU DON'T TRY TO HAVE

REVENGE.

THAT'S WHAT IS SINFUL.

BUT THE FACT THAT RIGHTEOUS

ANGER AT OPPRESSION -- WHAT

IF YOU SAW A GROUP OF BLACK

PEOPLE BEING WHIPPED BY AN

OVERSEER?

WOULDN'T YOU GET ANGRY.

IF YOU SAW SOME GIRLS BEING

TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY WHITE

SLAVERY, WOULDN'T YOU BE

ANGRY?

OF COURSE YOU WOULD.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU

PLOT REVENGE OF HOW YOU'RE

GOING TO KILL THEM.

THAT'S THE SIN.

Terry: THIS IS MARGIE

WHO SAID, "WHAT DID JESUS DO

DURING THOSE 40 DAYS BEFORE

THE CRUCIFICATION?"

Pat: THE APOSTLE PETER

SAID HE PREACHED -- WAS IT

PETER OR JAMES?

WHERE AM I?

I DON'T WANT TO MISS

ANYTHING.

THE BIBLE HAS A SHORT

REFERENCE THAT HE WENT DOWN

AND PREACHED TO THOSE.

Terry: HE VISITED

PEOPLE FROM TIME TO TIME.

Pat: APPEARED ON THE

SEA OF GALILEE.

BEYOND THAT, THE BIBLE IS

QUIET.

IF IT IS QUIET, I'VE GOT TO

BE QUIET.

Terry: THIS IS JOAN WHO

SAYS, "I HAVE ALWAYS HEARD

THAT ST. PETER WAS HUNG ON A

CROSS, BUT HE DIDN'T WANT TO

BE HUNG LIKE JESUS.

HE WANTED TO BE HUNG UP SIDE

DOWN.

I'VE READ THROUGH THE BIBLE

MANY TIMES, BUT I NEVER

FOUND ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA ABOUT

THIS?"

Pat: THAT IS SOMETHING

THAT IS EXTRA BIBLICAL.

IT COMES OUT OF THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

I THINK IT IS PART OF THE

TRADITION.

IT MAY HAVE BEEN A TRADITION

IN ROME AT THE TIME.

IT MAY HAVE BEEN BASED ON

ACTUAL EVENTS, BUT IT IS NOT

IN THE BIBLE.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS

AEDA, "THE BIBLE SAYS WE

HAVE TO USE THE SHIELD AND

THE ARMOR OF GOD, SO HOW DO

WE DO THIS.

PLEASE, CAN YOU MAKE THIS

CLEAR FOR US?

WE LOVE THE SHOW AND WE LOVE

PAT."

Pat: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

ERECOMMEND YOI RECOMMEND

THAT YOU READ THE CHAPTER IN

EPHESIANS.

HE SAYS TAKE ON THE ARMOR OF

GOD.

THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT IS

THE WORD OF GOD.

THE HELMET, THE BREAST PLATE

OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

THERE ARE ALL THESE THINGS

THAT EQUIP YOU AS A CHILD OF

GOD.

READ IT, AND THAT'S WHAT IT

IS.

THAT'S THE WHOLE ARMOR OF

GOD.

Terry: GLEN SAYS, "WHAT

DID GOD TELL MOSES NOT TO

USE YEAST?"

Pat: I'M NOT SURE HE

TOLD HIM NOT TO USE IT.

YEAFLT, IYEAST, IN A SENSE,

IT IS A SIGN OF

DESTRUCTION.

IT CAUSES BREAD TO RISE, BUT

IT ALSO CAUSES

FERMENTATION.

IT IS A SIGN OF

FERMENTATION.

IN CERTAIN FESTIVALS, THE

FEAST OF THE UNLEVENED

BREAD, THE PASSOVER, THEY

DIDN'T HAVE YEAST.

YEAST IS A BIBLICAL SYMBOL

FOR SIN AND CORRUPTION,

ETC.

Terry: MY DAUGHTER JUST

BAKED BREAD THE OTHER DAY,

AND IT TAKES TIME FOR BREAD

TO RISE, AND THEY DIDN'T

HAVE TIME TO DO THAT.

Pat: WHEN THEY WERE

LEAVING, THAT'S PART OF IT.

THAT'S TRUE.

I THINK IT HAS TO DO WITH

FERMENTATION.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE YEAST,

THAT BREAD WILL KEEP

FOREVER.

THEY HAD A LONG TRIP OUT IN

THE DERT.

DESERT.

IF THEY HAD MOLDY BREAD, IT

WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN TOO

GOOD.

Terry: "I BELIEVE THAT

JESUS IS THE SON OF MY

FATHER, BUT ISN'T IT TRUE

THAT THE EARTH HAS A SPIRIT

OF ITS OWN THAT IT SHOULD BE

RESPECTED.

IS IT WRONG TO BELIEVE IN

MOTHER NATURE?"

Pat: IT SURE IS WRONG.

THE EGYPT THOUGHT THERE WAS

A GODDESS AND THEY

WORSHIPPED THE EARTH.

THE EARTH IS SAND AND WATER

AND A HUNK OF ROCK, BUT IT

ISN'T THE SPIRIT.

JESUS IS THE SPIRIT.

GOD IS THE SPIRIT.

WE WANT TO WORSHIP THEM, NOT

MOTHER EARTH.

SOME OF THE GREEK MYTHOLOGY,

YOU HAVE THIS GREAT, STRONG

MAN.

HE LOST HIS POWER.

HE CAME BACK TO EARTH AND HE

REGAINED HIS POWER.

NO.

I'M SORRY.

IT MAKES NICE STORIES, BUT

IT'S WRONG.

YOU ASKED ME IF IT IS RIGHT

OR WRONG.

THE ANSWER IT IS NOT

BIBLICAL, AND IT IS WRONG.

Terry: BUT IT IS NOT

WRONG TO RESPECT AND CARE

FOR THE EARTH.

Pat: OF COURSE NOT.

WE ARE TO TEND THE EARTH AND

LOVE IT.

LOVE THE WATER.

KEEP IT CLEAN AND PURE.

THE AIR, KEEP IT CLEAN AND

PURE.

YOU HAVE TO RESPECT AND LOOK

AFTER THE PLANTS.

I THINK PLANTS CAN

UNDERSTAND.

THEY HAVE A CERTAIN

FEELING.

YOU CAN TALK TO PLANTS.

GOD GAVE HIS CREATURES A

CERTAIN SENSIBILITY, AND I

THINK WE OUGHT TO CARE FOR

THEM, BUT WE DON'T WORSHIP

THEM.

THANK YOU FOR THAT.

DON'T FIND GIAH.

DON'T DO IT.

RIGHT NOW I WANT TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO A

POLICEMAN.

HIS NAME IS STEVE CURRIE.

AFTER STEVE'S DIVORCE, HIS

BILLS PILED UP, AND HE

STRUGGLED JUST TO BUY FOOD.

BUT ALL IT TOOK WAS ONE GOOD

IDEA TO GET HIM OUT OF DEBT

FOR GOOD.

WATCH THIS.

RADIO FROM 158.

Reporter: STEVE CURRIE

HAS BEEN A POLICE OFFICER

FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS.

THE JOB PAYS WELL, BUT IT

WASN'T ENOUGH WHEN HE

DIVORCED, PUTTING A STRAIN

ON HIS FINANCES.

I WAS LEFT WITH A

SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF CREDIT

CARD DEBT.

IT WAS TOUGH, AND IT WAS

DRAINING.

Reporter: CHILD SUPPORT

ADDED UP.

HE HAD TO COMMUTE TO GET HIS

KIDS, AND NEEDED CHILD CARE

WHEN HIS SHIFT LANDED ON THE

ON THE WEEKEND.

HOW WAS I GOING TO PAY

FOR GAS FOR THE TRIP, IT WAS

A THREE-HOUR TRIP.

HOW WAS I GOING TO PAY FOR

THE BABY-SITTER?

HOW WAS I GOING TO PAY FOR

FOOD.

Reporter: WHEN STEVE

STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND HEARD LESSONS ON

TITHING AND GIVING, HE

DECIDED TO TRY IT.

I LEARNED THAT DONATING

AND TITHING ALL LINED UP

WITH WHAT THE BIBLE HAD

SAID.

Reporter: A LITTLE OVER

A YEAR LATER, STEVE SAYS GOD

GAVE HIM AN IDEA TO IMPROVE

SQUAD CARS.

IT IS DANGEROUS WHEN AN

OFFICER LEANS OVER A

PROPOSITIOA PRISONER TO

BUCKLE THEM UP.

SO HE DESIGNED THE SEAT

BELT.

HE GRABS IT FROM HERE,

AND CLICKS IT DOWN HERE,

NEVER ENTERING THE CAR.

Reporter: STEVE AND HIS

PARTNER OBTAINED A PATENT

AND STARTED SELLING THE SEAT

BELTS THROUGHOUT THE U.S.

HIS FIRST PROCEEDS CHECK WAS

$10,000.

TO WATCH GOD WORK, AND

THE JOY YOU GET, KNOWING HE

IS GIVING YOU THIS, AND

WATCHING IT COME FROM

SCRATCH, FROM A NAPKIN, TO

SELLING IT TO MAKING MONEY,

IT WAS TOTAL EXCITEMENT.

GIVING TO THE LORD IS

PROBABLY THE BEST IN

INVESTMENT YOU'RE EVER GOING

TO MAKE.

HE WANTS TO SHOW YOU WHAT HE

CAN DO FOR YOU.

IF YOU TITHE, IT IS ONE WAY

THE LORD CAN COMMUNICATE

WITH YOU AND SAY, SEE, I'M

ANSWERING YOUR PRAYER.

Pat: YOU KNOW, OUR

MONEY IS IMPORTANT.

OUR MONEY REPRESENTS THE

LIFE WORK THAT WE HAVE

DONE.

IT REPRESENTS A LOT OF

THINGS.

AND WHEN WE TAKE THAT AND

SAY, GOD, YOU'RE IN CHARGE

OF MY MONEY, THAT'S WHAT

THAT TITHE IS.

IT SAYS, YOU'RE IN CHARGE,

GOD.

I RESPECT YOUR OWNERSHIP,

NOT ONLY OF ME, BUT OF MY

MONEY.

AND GOD SAYS, OKAY, IF

YOU'RE MONEY IS MINE, WATCH

WHAT I'M GOING TO DO WITH

IT.

AND HE BEGINS TO BLESS IT.

Terry: WE HAVE SEEN IT

OVER AND OVER, HAVEN'T WE?

Pat: OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

LISTEN, IF YOU WANT TO

PARTICIPATE IN THE BLESSING

OF HELPING OTHERS, WE HAVE

SOMETHING CALLED "THE 700

CLUB."

$20 A MONTH.

IT'S REAL EASY, AND YOU CAN

BE PART OF AN ARMY OF

THOUSANDS THAT IS REACHING

OUT TO OUR WORLD.

WHEN YOU JOIN, WE WANT TO

GIVE YOU THIS D.V.D. OF

THESE FABULOUS STORIES OF

PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED AND

COME BACK.

REAL-LIFE PEOPLE WHO WENT TO

HEAVEN OR HELL.

"LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE, PART

TWO," AND WE'LL GIVE THIS

TWO YOU AS OUR GIFT TO YOU.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL

IN AND SAY YOU CAN COUNT ON

ME.

TERRY?

Terry: WE'LL BE RIGHT

BACK, AND WE WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU AND YOUR NEEDS, SO

STAY WITH US.

*

Terry: AS A WORKING

MOTHER, MARY WOODS ALREADY

HAD HER HANDS FULL.

SO WHEN SHE INJURED HERSELF

LIFTING FURNITURE, MARY'S

LIFE CAME TO A STAND STILL,

BUT NOT FOR LONG.

JUST TAKE A LOOK.

KATELYN, DO YOU WANT

THIS?

Reporter: MARY WOODS IS

A SUPER BUSY MOM WITH TWO

YOUNG DAUGHTERS AND A

FULL-TIME JOB.

I GET UP IN THE MORNING

AND WAKE MY GIRLS AT 7:15,

AND GET THEM MOVING AND

GOING, TO GET READY OUT THE

DOOR AND NOT BE LATE FOR

SCHOOL.

Reporter: BUT HER

ABILITY TO KEEP THE

HOUSEHOLD RUNNING CAME TO A

STANDSTILL WHEN MARY INJURED

HER SIDE WHILE LIFTING A

PIECE OF FURNITURE.

IT WAS INTENSE.

I COULD NOT GET A FULL, DEEP

BREATH BECAUSE THE PAIN WAS

SO SHARP.

I WENT TO THE E.R. THAT

EVENING, AND THEY TOLD ME IT

WAS A PULLED MUSCLE.

AND THAT THERE WAS NOT MUCH

I COULD DO BUT ALLOW IT TO

HEAL.

WHEN I CAME HOME, WITHIN TWO

DAYS, I WAS WORSE.

Reporter: ONE DAY MARY

DECIDED TO PRAY WITH "THE

700 CLUB," AND ASKED GOD FOR

HEALING.

PAT SPOKE A WORD, THERE

IS SOMEBODY WHO HAS PAIN IN

THEIR LEFT SIDE.

Pat: IT IS SOMEBODY'S

STOMACH, AND I WAS GOING TO

SAY IT WAS AN ULCER, BUT IT

IS NOT.

I FELT INSTANTANEOUSLY

THAT THE LORD WAS TEACHING

ME.

I I WA WAS ABLE TO BREATHE

AND MOVE AND BEND WITHOUT

PAIN.

THE LORD INSTANTANEOUSLY

HEALED ME.

I AM SO GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR

REACHING OUT HIS HAND AND

TOUCHING ME.

Terry: DON'T YOU LOVE

TO HEAR A STORY LIKE THAT?

Pat: IT'S WONDERFUL.

SHE IS SITTING THERE, AND

GOD KNOWS HER NEEDS.

LISTEN, IT IS TIME TO PRAY.

AND WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE IT TO

THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE, THE

LORD OF GLORY, WHO IS ABLE

TO DO EXCEEDINGLY,

ABUNDANTLY, ABOVE WHAT WE

ASK OR THINK.

WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

IT MAY BE FINANCIAL.

IT MAY BE RELATIONSHIP.

IT MAY BE WISDOM.

IT MAY BE SPIRITUAL.

IT MAY BE PHYSICAL.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER AND WE ARE GOING TO

BELIEVE GOD FOR YOU.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY DEAR

SISTER IN CHRIST, AND WE, IN

TURN, JOIN WITH THOUSANDS OF

THESE PEOPLE IN THE

AUDIENCE, WHEREVER THEY ARE,

AND WE ASK, LORD, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS, THAT YOU

MIGHT REACH OUT AND BRING

HEALING INTO PEOPLE'S

LIVES.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST

OF NAZARETH.

THERE IS A CRACKED KNUCKLE.

IT IS ARTHRITIC.

YOU JAMMED SOMETHING INTO

IT, AND IT IS SWOLLEN.

PUT YOUR OTHER HAND ON THAT

KNUCKLE, AND IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, IT IS BEING HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE -- I THINK YOUR NAME

IS CARLA.

YOU ARE PRAYING ABOUT

SOMETHING.

IT IS NOT PHYSICAL HEALING.

IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH

EMOTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH

PEOPLE.

GOD IS ANSWERING A PRAYER

YOU HAVE PRAYED FOR MANY,

MANY YEARS.

JUST RECEIVE HIS ANSWER

NOW.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

STRUCTURE IN YOUR THROAT --

JUST OPEN THAT UP AND PEACE

THE IS COMING.

OTHERS, YOU'RE TROUBLED AND

WORRIED.

GOD IS GIVING YOU PEACE,

JOY, AND HOPE, IN JESUS'

NAME, IS COMING TO YOU.

Terry: AS YOU WERE

LISTENING TO MARY TALK ABOUT

PAIN IN YOUR SIDE, YOU HAVE

THAT ALL ACROSS THE MID

SECTION OF YOUR BACK.

YOU'RE HAVING A HARD TIME

TURNING RIGHT AND LEFT, AND

BENDING OVER TO PICK THINGS

UP.

RIGHT NOW YOU'RE GOING TO

FEEL A WARMTH COME INTO THAT

PART OF YOUR BACK AS GOD

TOUCHES YOU WITH HIS HEALING

POWER.

Pat: SOMEBODY GOT

HIT -- WITH LIKE A BAT OR A

STICK, ACROSS YOUR NOSE.

IT IS SORE AND SWELLED, AND

PUT YOUR HAND OVER YOUR

NOSE, AND IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, IT IS COMPLETELY

HEALED.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WE CAN PRAY MORE FOR YOU.

PLEASE CALL.

WE'VE GOT FOLKS ON THE

PHONE, EVEN THOUGH THIS

PROGRAM GOES OFF THE AIR.

1-800-759-0700.

PRAISE GOD.

TOMORROW, A CRACK ADDICT

COMES CLEAN ON EASTER

SUNDAY.

AND WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH

THESE WORDS FROM MATTHEW 21:

22: "AND WHATSOEVER THINGS

YOU ASK IN PRAYER,

BELIEVING, YOU WILL

RECEIVE."

THAT'S THE WORD OF JESUS.

TAKE IT AND ENJOY IT.

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU

TODAY, AND WE'LL BE TALKING

YOU AT THIS SAME TIME

TOMORROW.

SO FOR LEE AND TERRY AND ALL

OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON.

GOOD-BYE.

GOD BLESS YOU.
