TRASH LEAKING INTO HOMES.

ONE CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS NO

WHEN EDED O

ORIGINALLY PUT IN

THE GROUND.

REPORTER: IT COULD BE

HAPPENING NEAR YOU.

IT WAS SOMETHING WE NEVER

THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE TO DEAL

WITH.

REPORTER: PLUS A BATTERED

WIFE FIGHTS BACK.

I AM GOING TO KILL HIM AND

KILL HIMSELF.

REPORTER: WHY SHE SNAPPED.

NOT REALIZING IT WAS ME.

PAT: WELCOME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, IT IS A START OF A

NEW WEEK.

WE HAVE A PROGRAM ABOUT A

MACHETE-WIELDING WIFE.

I HOPE NO ONE TAKES THIS AS

SOMETHING TO DO, IT IS

DANGEROUS.

NEVERTHELESS IT HAS A GOOD

ENDING.

TENSIONS ARE HEIGHTENING IN THE

MIDDLE EAST AFTER AIR STRIKES

THAT LEFT A HUGE EXPLOSION

OUTSIDE OF DAMASCUS.

ISRAELIS SAY THEY ARE SHIPPING

DANGEROUS WEAPONS TO HEZBOLLAH

IN LEBANON.

TERRY: THAT'S RIGHT, OUR

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY.

HE IS IN ISRAEL.

REPORTER: SYRIA'S FOREIGN

MINISTER SAYS THE TARGETS NEAR

DAMASCUS ARE A DECLARATION OF

WAR.

ISRAEL CARRIED OUT TWO STRIKES

IN 48 HOURS DESCRIBED AS GAME

CHANGING WEAPONS, ADVANCED

IRANIAN MISSILES OF RANGES OF

180 MILES.

THE ATTACKS HIGHLIGHTED GROWING

IRANIAN MOVEMENT IN SYRIA AND

THE REGION.

ANY RETALIATION WILL BE IN

TEHRAN RATHER THAN DAMASCUS BY

THE ASSAD REGIME.

SYRIA CAN'T RETALIATE WITHOUT

APPROVAL OF IRAN.

ONLY IRAN CAN APPROVE.

IRAN IS A GREAT SUPPORTER.

REPORTER: ISRAEL MOVED

ANTIIRON DOME MISSILES TO

PROTECT ISRAEL.

THEY WERE TAKING THE SITUATION

IN STRIDE.

OFFICIALLY THE ISRAELI

GOVERNMENT HAS NEITHER CONFIRMED

OR DENIED THE STRIKES.

IT WAS ISRAEL'S POLICY NOT TO

ALLOW A CERTAIN KIND OF WEAPON

TO REACH THE HANDS OF

TERRORISTS.

BEYOND THAT MANY QUESTION HOW

THE U.S. SHOULD RESPOND.

WHOLE SITUATION IS BECOMING

MORE AND MORE EXPANSIVE AND

UNFORTUNATELY THE RED LINE THAT

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES WAS WRITTEN IN DISAPPEAR

DISAPPEARIDISAPPEAR

ING INK.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE

PRESIDENT'S STEPS SHOULD BE.

CLEARLY HIS INDECISIVENESS

DESTABLEDIZED BROUGHT ISRAEL

INTO THIS.

REPORTER: BLOODY CIVIL WAR IN

SYRIA CONTINUES.

AFTER THE WEEKEND ATTACKS, IT IS

CLEAR ISRAEL IS READY TO ACT IF

IT FEELS ITS SECURITY IS

THREATENED.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

PAT: THERE IS NO WAY SYRIA IS

GOING TO GO TO WAR.

THEY ARE NOT ABOUT TO GO TO WAR.

QUESTION IS, IF SOMEBODY GOES IN

AND STARTS HAMMERING ON ASSAD'S

FORCES, DOES THAT MEAN THE UM --

RADICAL LEFTIST WILL WIN?

WHO IS GOING TO WIN?

WHO IS THE OPPOSITION?

WE DON'T KNOW.

I KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF VOICES

SAYING THE PRESIDENT IS

INDECISIVE AND OUGHT TO DO

SOMETHING.

I AM NOT SURE WHAT HE OUGHT TO

DO AND I THINK IN THIS CASE A

LITTLE INDECISION ISN'T A BAD

THING.

[LAUGHTER].

FOLKS, WE HAVE BEEN TALKING FOR

MONTHS ABOUT THE STATE OF OUR

CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.

I UNDERSTAND NOW FROM THE HEAD

OF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

THAT THERE ARE 500 NEW FEDERAL

CRIMES ADDED EVERY DECADE.

500.

THEY HAVE TAKEN AWAY WHAT IS

CALLED MENS REAL.

THE IDEA THAT YOU ARE COMMITTING

A CRIME.

THESE ARE ACCIDENTAL ACTS, SOME

PEOPLE AREN'T AWARE THEY ARE

COMMITTING CRIMES THAT CAN WIND

THEM UP IN JAIL.

FINALLY CONGRESS IS ABOUT TO

TACKLE THAT HUGE CRIMINAL CODE.

CODE IS SO WIDESPREAD, EVERY

AMERICAN HAS BROKEN SOME LAW,

SOME WHERE.

SOME Y OVER 18 HAS BROKEN

LAW.

EE WEBB HAS BEEN MORE FROM THE

CBN NEWS ROOM.

REPORTER: PAT, LAWMAKERS IN

CONGRESS ARE LOOKING TO

LIGHTNING THE CRIMINAL CODE.

NUMEROUS CASES OF ORDINARY

AMERICANS CHARGED WITH PETTY

CRIMES.

CONGRESS CREATED SO MANY

CRIMINAL LAWS, TOO EASY TO

VIOLATE ONE AND NEVER KNOW IT.

WALL STREET JOURNAL CREATES

OVERCRIMINALIZATION TASK FORCE

OF 2013.

CONGRESSMAN JIM SINSONBRENER

WANTS TO CUT IT BY ONE-THIRD.

HE SAYS IT IS A THREAT TO

LIBERTY AND EXPENSIVE WAY TO

DEAL WITH A LOT OF PROBLEMS.

NEW SIGNS THAT AMERICA IS RISING

FROM ECONOMIC PROBLEMS.

RECENT DRAMATIC DISCOVERIES OF

VAST U.S. OIL AND GAS RESERVES

BOOSTING THE ECONOMY.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PRIVATE

SECTOR.

IT CAME AS GOVERNMENT JOBS ARE

BEING CUT.

HIGH BREAKING 15,000 MARK FOR

THE FIRST TIME AND PROVIDES

REPUBLICANS WITH FRESH SUPPORT

FOR FEWER REGULATIONS ON

BUSINESS.

ENCOURAGING, PAT?

PAT: EXTREMELY ENCOURAGING.

INTERESTING ARTICLE IN WALL

STREET JOURNAL, TWO STATES, ONE

IS CALIFORNIA.

LARGEST STATE BY POPULATION IN

AMERICA.

OTHER IS STATE OF TEXAS.

TEXAS IS GROWING.

TEXAS IS PROSPERING.

TEXAS HAS A HUGE BUDGET SURPLUS.

TEXAS IS CREATING JOBS AS FAST

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, WHY?

BECAUSE THEY HAVE OPENED UP

THEIR TREMENDOUS RESOURCES OF

OIL, ESPECIALLY THE SHALES BAR

NET AND OTHERS THEY ARE

EXPLOITING.

THEY HAVE MADE IT EASY TO DRILL,

EASY TO GET PERMITS.

BECAUSE THEY LIKE OIL AND GAS.

CALIFORNIA ON THE OTHER SIDE IS

SUFFERING HUGE HIGH TAXES,

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE, OFF THE

CHARTS, SUFFERING AND MISERY,

WHY?

BECAUSE THE ENVIRONMENTALIST

DON'T LIKE NATURAL GAS, THINK

DON'T LIKE FOSSIL FUELS.

THEY GO FOR THE GREEN JOBS AND

GREEN JOBS AREN'T WORKING.

IT WAS AN AMAZING THING THAT

INDEED, CALIFORNIA WITH RICHES

BEYOND BELIEF ARE TURNING AWAY

FROM THEM SO THEY CAN SUFFER.

AND TEXAS IS SAYING BRING IT ON,

WE LIKE IT, WE ARE FOR BUSINESS

AND FREE ENTERPRISE AND

ESPECIALLY OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY.

INTERESTING CONTRAST, LEE.

REPORTER: PAT, HE IS AN

EVANGELICAL, YOU WOULD THINK THE

ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH WOULD

STICK UP FOR HIM.

PAT: I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

IT IS CHRISTIAN.

THE CHURCH IS CLEAR ABOUT THIS.

FOR SOMEBODY TO SAY A HOMOSEXUAL

CAN CHANGE THAT SOME HOW IS A

HATE CRIME?

IT IS A HATE CRIME TO SAY

SOMEBODY CAN CHANGE THEIR SEXUAL

PREFERENCE?

THAT IS WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE OUGHT

DIFFERENT STATE.

METHANE GAS, CARBON DIOXIDE IS

ANOTHER.

REPORTER: HERE IS WHY

ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCATE FRED

TUTMAN SAYS YOU SHOULD CARE.

IF A DUMP SITE ISN'T MAINTAINS,

METHANE CAN ESCAPE OR INVADE

BASEMENTS OR NEARBY HOMES AND

BUILDINGS.

ONEBLEMS NO

UP.p8EDEDú>

BIGGEST ER: THE

PROBLEM?

METHANE CAN MAKE THINGS GO

BOOM.

IF IT ACCUMULATED IN A SPACE

WHERE THERE IS IGNITION SOURCE.

PILOT LIGHTS FOR WATER AND

HEATER.

HOT RADIATOR, PULL YOUR CAR IN

THE GARAGE.

THOSE HAZARDS IN THE HOUSE WOULD

BE A TYPICAL FLAME.

REPORTER: MICK BUTLER AND

OTHERS KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO

FACE METHANE.

THEY EVACUATED 20 HOMES AT FORT

MEADE.

THESE HOMES HAVE SAT EMPTY FOR

EIGHT YEARS.

IT WAS SOMETHING WE NEVER

THOUGHT WE HAD TO DEAL WITH.

I HAD THE FULL CONFIDENCE AT

FORT MEADE.

WE DID THE RIGHT THING.

REPORTER: UNDERNEATH THIS

OFFICIALS FIELD, THEú

DISCOVERED A WORLD WAR II DUMP

SITE, IT CONTAINED A LOT OF

METHANE-GENERATED TRASH.

OPERATIONAL PRACTICE FOR LAND

FILLING, DIG A HOLE, PUT YOUR

WAIST IN THE HOLE.

REPORTER: TODAY'S LANDFILLS

MUST INCLUDE A LINER TO PREVENT

METHANE FROM LEAKING INTO SOIL,

GROUND WATER, PIPES AND

BUILDINGS.

DURING THE 40S, THAT WASN'T THE

CASE.

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, METHANE

LEVELS SPIKED AROUND THE FIELD.

MY JOB IS TO INSURE THE

SAFETY AND PROTECT OF THE

COMMUNITY.

I FELT IT PERSONALLY IT WAS

IMPORTANT TO DO SOMETHING

PERMANENT.

REPORTER: THAT INCLUDED

EVACUATING FAMILIES BECAUSE OF

EXPLOSIONS AND TRASH NEEDED TO

GO, 27 THOUSAND TONS OR A

THOUSAND TRUCKLOADS.

THEY CAPPED IT OFF AND CONVERTED

IT TO GREEN SPACE.

MILLION DOLLARS.

LEADERS AT FORT MEADE THOUGHT IT

WAS IMPORTANT.

YOU CAN'T GET ANYMORE -- AS A

FATHER, AS A PERSON SAFETY OF

THOSE OCCUPANTS WAS PRIME ON

YOUR LIST.

COULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN ANY WORSE.

REPORTER: WHAT ARE SOLUTIONS

TO PREVENT METHANE FROM

LANDFILLS FROM HARMING PEOPLE

AND ENVIRONMENT.

THE METHANE GENERATED FROM

DECAYING TRASH IS RECLAIMED OR

HARNESSED AND USED TO HEAT

ANOTHER AREA FACILITY.

SOME SITES ARE HARVESTING THE

GAS.

THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO USE

THIS COMBUSTIBLE GAS TO GENERATE

ENERGY, POWER, RUN AUTOMOBILES,

FOR POWER GENERATION, BASICALLY.

GENERALLY IT IS ELECTRICITY

OF SOME TYPE, PUTTING IT BACK ON

THE GRID OR USING IT TO RUN

BUILDINGS CLOSE BY.

REGARDLESS IF IT IS HARNESSED

OR REUSED, METHANE NEEDS TO BE

CONTROLLED.

AS THEY CONTINUE TO MONITOR

METHANE LEVELS, ENVIRONMENTEDAL

LEADERS AT FORT MEADE HOPE TO

PUT RESIDENTS BACK IN THE HOMES.

TO EDUCATE

YOURSELF.

VISIT STATE AND LOCAL LANDFILLS

TO SEE IF IT IS TRULY SECURE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS, MARYLAND.

PAT: THANKS, MARK.

WE APPRECIATE THAT.

BIG THING ABOUT LOVE CANAL,

AWFUL DUMP.

PEOPLE WERE GETTING CANCER FROM

THE FUMES AND RUNOFF FROM THE

DUMP.

PEOPLE IN THOSE DAYS WERE NOT

AWARE OF THE IMPACT OF CHEMICALS

IN THE WATER SUPPLY AND THE

GROUND AND CERTAINLY NOT IN THE

AIR THEY BREATHE.

THIS METHANE IS SOMETHING ELSE.

AT LEAST WE ARE GETTING SMART.

HOPEFULLY THEY CAN CONTAIN THEM.

PAT: WE HAVE ONE DOWN THE

STREET FROM US.

WE ARE TRYING TO GET THE CITY TO

MACHETE RAN ACROSS MY THROAT.

TERRY: CAN THIS MARRIAGE BE

SAVED, FIND OUT AFTER THIS.

PAT: SOME PEOPLE MIGHT BE

AMUSED AT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,

SOMETIMES THESE THINGS GET A BIT

COMICAL.

THEY ARE ANYTHING BUT BECAUSE

THEY CAN LEAD TO TRAGEDY,

WOUNDING, AND EVEN DEATH.

WITH A BIKER HUSBAND NAMED BEAR,

YOU MIGHT THINK DELORES

RODRIGUEZ MIGHT BE INTIM NATED

BY HIM.

SHE WAS A FEISTY LADY AND

ANYTHING BUT INTIMIDATED.

WHEN BEAR PUSHED HER TO A LIMIT,

DELORES CAME BACK SWINGING A

MACHETE.

I SAID THIS IS IT, I AM

TAKING HIS LIFE AND MY OWN.

I CAN'T DO THIS NO MORE.

I STOOD UP ON THE EDGE OF MY

FATHER.

RO

REPORTER: WHEN THEY MARRIED,

BEAR HELD DOWN A JOB AT A LOCAL

FACTORY.

WOULD SAY SHUT UP, YOU ARE SO

STUPID.

THE PHYSICAL ABUSE STARTED.

REPORTER: OVER THE YEARS,

THEY HAD FIVE MORE CHILDREN.

BEAR CONTINUED HIS RECKLESS

LIFE.

DELORES ALSO JOINED AT THE

PARTIES.

IT HELPED TO SEDATE ME.

THE MORE HE DID, THE MORE I DID.

HARDER DRUGS.

LOST TOUCH WITH REALITY AND GO

INTO VIOLENT RAGES.

I AM STONED AND DRUNK.

PUSH MY WIFE IN THERE.

I STARTED DOING THE DRUGS AND

SNORTING DRUGS, LEFT AND RIGHT

AND HE FINALLY CAME HOME.

ALL THE LIGHTS OFF IN THE

HOUSE DELORES, I KNEW SHE WAS

HOME.

AS SOON AS HE GOT CLOSE

ENOUGH, I SWUNG.

I HEARD A VOICE SAY DUCK.

I WENT BACK AND A MACHETE CAME

CROSS MY THROAT AND RAN INTO THE

WALL.

HE RAN OUT THE DOOR AND I

WENT INTO THE KITCHEN AND CUT

HIS HARLEY.

SHE WAS GOING ON LIKE A CRAZY

WOMAN.

THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I CRIED.

I WAS WONDERING WHAT DID THIS.

REPORTER: DELORES WAS

ARRESTED. MY TRUE FAMILY DIDN'T

WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH ME.

HER FAMILY DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING

TO DO WITH EITHER ONE OF US.

REPORTER: COUPLE ENDED UP

BACK TOGETHER.

DELORES WANTED A CHANGE.

ONE SUNDAY MORNING SHE HEARD

MUSIC COMING FROM A CHURCH.

SHE WENT IN AND HAD A SEAT.

WHEN I SAT DOWN I COULDN'T

HEAR NONE OF THEM.

ALL THE SUDDEN, THIS WHITE

GLISTENING BLANKET CAME UP FROM

HEAVEN AND WATCHING THIS AND

FLOWED AND CAME OVER ME AND IT

PENETRATED INSIDE ME.

EVERYTHING BAD IN MY BODY WAS

GONE.

I WAS IN MY RIGHT MIND.

I FELT NO MORE PAIN, NO

CONFUSION, NO FEAR, I DIDN'T

WANT TO DIE ANYMORE.

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO HURT MY

HUSBAND ANYMORE.

ATTENDING A CHURCH.

COME INTO MY HEART AND TAKE

CONTROL OF MY LIFE.

I AM OUT OF CONTROL.

HE DID.

HE DID EXACTLY WHAT I ASKED HIM

TO DO.

REPORTER: BEAR NOTICED HIS

WIFE NEEDED TO CHANGE.

THERE WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT

ABOUT HER SMILING, SINGING, AT

NIGHT SHE PUT OIL ON THE PILLOWS

I HEAR HER TALKING SHE WOULD SAY

THANK YOU, FATHER FOR GIVING ME

A KING AND A PRIEST.

TERRY: YOU ARE OFFERED A SIX

FIGURE SALARY, A LOT OF PEOPLE

WOULD SAY DITCH THE DREAM.

I WAS GRATEFUL.

MY DAD AND GRANDFATHER GREW UP

ON EITHER SIDE OF THE

DEPRESSION.

THEY NEVER WOULD HAVE SAID CAN I

THINK ABOUT IT OVER THE WEEKEND?

I WAS WRESTLING WITH LORD, WHY

DID YOU PUT ME ON PLANET EARTH.

TERRY: YOU ARE OFFERED THIS

MONEY.

WHAT DID YOUR WIFE SAY?

SHE WOKE ME UP AT 4:00 IN THE

MORNING.

WE HAD A ROUGH WEEKEND.

SHE TAPPED ME ON THE SHOULDER,

SHE SAID THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY.

[LAUGHTER].

I SAID HONEY, WHAT DO YOU WANT

ME TO DO?

THAT IS MY PIPE DREAM, MY DREAM.

SHE GAVE ME A GIFT I CAN'T EVER

REPAY HER.

SUNDAY LATER THAT WEEKEND, THE

LORD DID NEAT STUFF.

WE ARE GOING TO DO THIS ALL OUT.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO GET TO AGE

40 AND YOU TELL ME YOU COULD

HAVE BEEN SOMEONE ELSE.

NOW I AM 43 AND MY BOOKS ARE IN

17 COUNTRIES.

THE LORD ALLOWED US TO DO THAT.

TERRY: BEFORE YOU GOT TO

THAT PLACE, 86 REJECTIONS?

I STILL HAVE THEM IN A

FOLDER.

TERRY: WHAT WAS IT LIKE?

SHATTERED ME.

GUT WRENCHING.

THE TWO SENSE THEN, REJECTED,

THAT IS SHATTERING.

TERRY: BOOK IS LIKE GIVING

BIRTH TO A BABY.

SOMEONE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW SAYS

HMM, NOT GOING TO WORK.

IT IS TOUGH.

IT HAS MADE ME HIT MY KNEES.

IT IS ROUGH.

YOU ARE GETTING REACTION.

THAT IS MY SOUL ON THE PAGE.

THEY DON'T WANT IT.

TERRY: DID YOU EVER QUESTION

ALONG THE WAY.

HERE YOU WERE COMMITTED TO YOUR

DREAM, THIS PASSION STIRRING

INSIDE OF YOU, 86 REJECTIONS,

DID YOU EVER SAY, MAYBE I AM NOT

IT.POSED TO DO 

THIS SIDE OF PARADISE

REJECTED 126 TIMES.

I TOLD MYSELF WHEN I GET THERE

I'LL QUIT.

86 WAS GETTING CLOSE.

TERRY: THAT IS A LITTLE

SCARY.

TALK TO ME ABOUT YOUR FAITH AND

HOW IT HAS IMPACTED YOUR WRITING

AND THIS WHOLE PROCESS FOR YOU.

I DON'T HAVE A PLAN B.

THE LORD GIVES YOU THE FAITH YOU

NEED AND GAVE US WHAT WE NEEDED.

I PRAY MY STORIES HONOR THE LORD

AND ON HIS SHELF WHEN I GET

THERE.

TERRY: WHEN YOU GET THERE,

NOT JUST ON THE SHELF.

NOW YOU HAVE A MOVIE DEAL?

IT HAS BEEN IN DEVELOPMENT.

PETER FROM 21ST CENTURY FOX

BOUGHT IT.

I HOPE THEY MAKE A STORY.

I AM PULLING FOR YOU.

I THINK IT WOULD BE A GREAT

MOVIE.

I AM SO FAR DOWN ON THE TOTEM

POLE.

I FIND OUT WHEN THEY POST IT ON

THE INTERNET.

TERRY: HERE YOU ARE, WHEN

YOU LOOK TO THE FUTURE, WHAT ARE

THE THINGS IN YOUR HEART YOU

WANT TO SEE HAPPEN?

AS I GET OLDER AND I GET

THESE HARD CHALLENGED PLACES.

I REALIZE I AM NOT ALONE.

MY READERS ARE NOT ALONE.

I WANT TO WRITE STORIES THAT GET

TO THE HARD PLACES AND TOUCH

THEM WHERE THEY ARE STILL

TENDER, FORGIVE QUICKLY, LAUGH

DEEPLY.

HOPELESSNESS IS SOMETHING WE ARE

FED IN THIS CULTURE.

THIS IS YOUR DAILY DOSE YOU EAT

THIS TODAY.

I REACT STRONGLY TO THAT.

WHY NOT RAISE IN HOPE TO THE

SURFACE?

TERRY: YOU DO THAT IN

"UNWRITTEN," THAT IS THE LATEST.

I WAS UP LATE READING THIS.

IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT YOUR

READERS TO TAKE AWAY?

TWO THINGS, HOPE WINS AND

LOVE NEVER DIES.

BROKEN CUPS CAN STILL POUR

WATER.

TERRY: SOMETIMES WITH THOSE

WITH MORE APPRECIATION.

AWESOME BOOK.

YOU ARE A REGENT GRAD.

YES.

LORD POURED INTO ME.

I FLEW IN LAST NIGHT AND I DROVE

UP, WHAT ARE YOUR MEMORIES?

I REMEMBER A LOT OF HARD

WORK.

CHRISTY AND I LEARNED TO LEAN ON

ONE ANOTHER AND TRUST ONE

ANOTHER AND THE LORD.

MY PROFESSORS WERE AWESOME.

I DON'T JUST SAY THAT.

I STILL STAY IN CONTACT WITH

THEM.

TERRY: THEY INVEST IN YOU?

THEY INVESTED IN YOU.

I DID A MASTERS AND ACCEPTED ME

INTO THE DOCTORAL PROGRAM.

TERRY: SO PROUD OF YOU,

CHARLES' LATEST BOOK

"UNWRITTEN."

IT IS A GOOD READ.

GREAT TO MEET YOU.

WONDERFUL STORY.

UP NEXT WE ARE GOING TO BRING IT

ON WITH YOUR E-MAIL.

YVETTE WANTS TO KNOW, ARE GOD'S

PROMISES IN THE BIBLE FOR

EVERYONE?

YOU'LL FIND OUT WHEN WE COME

BACK.

TERRY: TIME FOR YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, PAT THIS FIRST ONE IS

FROM YVAN, ARE GOD'S PROMISES IN

THE BIBLE FOR EVERYONE OR

PATROLSED IN CATEGORIES SUCH AS

PROMISES JUST FOR ISRAEL?

PROMISES ONLY FOR SAVED

CHRISTIANS, SPIRIT FILLED

CHRISTIANS, ETC.?

HOW DO I KNOW IF I CAN CLAIM A

PROMISE IN THE BIBLE?

PAT: START BY SAYING IS THE

LAW OF GRAVITY FOR EVERYBODY?

TERRY: YES.

[LAUGHTER].

PAT: CERTAIN PHYSICAL LAWS

FOR EVERYBODY.

LAW OF RECIPROCITY.

LAW OF GROWTH, LAW OF USE, FOR

EVERYBODY.

IT IS THE WAY GOD MADE THE

UNIVERSE.

SPECIFIC PROMISES, OUGHT TO READ

TO WHO IT IS, TO THE CHURCH, IS

IT SO AND SO.

I KNOW YOUR WORK.

THOSE IN THE SYNAGOGUE, SATAN,

TRYING TO HURT YOU, THAT DOESN'T

APPLY TO YOU.

SEE WHO IT IS TO.

THE GENERAL PROMISES OF GOD, YOU

CAN SAY WAS THIS DIRECTED TO

SOMEBODY SPECIFICALLY?

A SPECIFIC TIME INVOLVED?

YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T GIVE UP YOUR

MIND JUST BECAUSE YOU BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

YOU HAVE TO ANALYZE WHAT IS

THERE.

THERE ARE TIMES GOD WILL TAKE

SOMETHING IN THE BIBLE AND SPEAK

TO YOU.

THAT THING BECOMES ALIVE IN YOUR

HEART AND THERE.

IT IS A WORD SPOKEN FROM THE

HOLY SPIRIT TO YOU.

TERRY: THIS IS HANNA, AFTER

MY SECOND MISCARRIAGE, I FEEL

LIKE I AM AT WAR WITHIN MYSELF.

FEAR SEEMS TO BE TAKING ME OVER

AND DOUBT.

I KNOW GOD HAS GOOD INTENTIONS,

WHY CAN'T I PROTECT HIM WITH MY

WHOLE HEART.

WHY CAN'T I RELAX AND REST IN

THE ARMS OF JESUS?

PAT: YOU HAVE GIVEN THE

ANSWER TO YOUR OWN QUESTION, WHY

DON'T YOU?

IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

IT IS GOD'S BLESSING FOR YOU,

WHY CAN'T I TRUST THE LORD.

TERRY: DO YOU THINK

CONFESSING FEAR AND ASKING

FORGIVENESS?

PAT: JOB SAID I FEARED A FEAR

AND CAME UPON ME.

I FEARED A FEAR AND CAME UPON

ME.

A MAN SHALL EAT GOOD BY THE

FRUIT OF HIS LIPS.

SPEAK!

I AM WHOLE, I AM WELL, I AM

BLESSED BY GOD, TODAY IS A DAY

OF BLESSING.

INSTEAD OF THAT, I AM TRYING TO

FIGHT.

TODAY I AM GOING TO FIGHT THE

FIGHT I AM GOING TO HAVE A

MISCARRIAGE, NO.

PRAISE GOD.

AND INGGOD OF

MIRACLES.

TERRY: THIS IS DAVID, I AM A

REGULAR VIEWER AND LOVE YOUR

SHOW.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHY WE PRAY?

WHY OTHER THAN TO PLEASE GOD?

DO OUR PRAYERS CHANGE THE

OUTCOME OF SITUATIONS, MANY

PEOPLE WONDER ABOUT THIS.

PAT: OF COURSE OUR PRAYERS

CHANGE THIS.

JESUS IS SAYING IN TIME OF

TROUBLE THERE IN ISRAEL YOUR

PRAYERS WOULD BE EFFECTIVE IN

CHANGING THE TIME.

YES.

MAKE YOUR REQUESTS KNOWN UNTO

GOD PRAYER AND INTERCESSION.

START BY PRAISING HIM.

WHY DO YOU TALK TO YOUR FATHER

OR MOTHER?

WHY DO YOU TALK TO YOUR WIFE?

YOUR HUSBAND.

WOULDN'T THAT BE A TERRIBLE

THING TO NEVER TALK?

PRAYER IS A COMMUNION WHERE YOUR

SPIRIT IS BEING BUILT UP AS YOU

ARE *

TRUST WITH THE LORD AND IN

COMMUNION WITH GOD.

THAT IS WHAT PRAYER IS.

THE ASKING PART IS ONLY A TINY,

TINY PART OF PRAYER.

ALL RIGHT.

ONE LAST.

TERRY: THIS IS DENISE, FOR

MANY YEARS IN MY CHRISTIAN LIFE,

I PRAYED AND TRUSTED GOD TO LEAD

ME.

I SAW GOD WORK MIRACLES FOR ME

AND MY FAMILY.

THINGS WENT BADLY FOR A FEW

YEARS, I BECAME CONFUSED AND

MISSED WHAT GOD WAS TELLING ME.

HOW CAN I BE SURE I AM

UNDERSTANDING WHAT GOD IS SAYING

AND NOT WHAT I WANT IT TO BE?

PAT: THAT IS A THING WE ALL

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH, ARE WE

HEARING FROM GOD OR OURSELVES?

WE ARE HEARING THE WORLD, FLESH,

DEVIL.

ALWAYS PULLING AT US.

HOW DO YOU KNOW BY WALKING WITH

HIM?

I RECOMMEND YOU SPEND TIME, GO

APART, YOU AND THE BIBLE AND

SATURDAY TALKING TO THE LORD,

CONFESS YOUR DOUBTS, CONFESS

YOUR PROBLEM AND ASK GOD TO

SPEAK TO YOU.

IF YOU WAIT ON HIM A WHILE, WAIT

ON THE LORD.

OKAY.

TERRY: THIS IS KELLY, PAT,

OUR DAUGHTER WHO IS EIGHTEEN

MARRIED A MAN 29 AGAINST OUR

WISHES, HE HAS NO JOB OR DESIRE

TO WORK.

HE HAS BEEN IN JAIL THREE TIMES.

MY DAUGHTER SOLD HER CAR TO GET

HIM OUT OF JAIL THE LAST TIME.

ALSO DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE AND

BOTH LIVE WITH HIS GRANDMA ALSO

IN JAIL.

HER DAD AND I HAVE GREAT CONCERN

AND WORRY, WHAT CAN WE DO AS

PARENTS?

PAT: YOU DESCRIBED ONE OF THE

MOST DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILIES I

THINK I HAVE HEARD ABOUT.

THAT IS THE PRICE OF REBELLION.

YOUR CHILD IS IN REBELLION, YOU

DIDN'T TEACH YOUR CHILD TO OBEY

YOU AND LISTEN TO YOU.

SHE IS DOING HER OWN THING AND

BEARING THE CONSEQUENCES.

RECOMMEND YOU TELL HER DAUGHTER

YOU LOVE HER, ALWAYS WELCOME TO

COME HOME WHEN THINGS DON'T WORK

OUT AND WON'T WORK OUT.

TELL HER YOU LOVE HER AND BEYOND

THAT, TURN HER OVER TO THE LORD

AND LET HIM TAKE CARE OF HER.

TERRY: THAT IS ALL THE TIME.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

IT HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.

WOW.

PAT: GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

THE STARS."

NOT GOOD. IS ttQ@LPn
