THE REAL LIFE MOTHER FROM

"THE BLIND SIDE."

I HOPE THE LOVE STORY

CONTINUES FAMILY AFTER FAMILY.

AND HOW SHE HELPING OTHERS BE

JUST LIKE HER.

CAN YOU IMAGINE OTHERS THAT

FALL THROUGHOUT CRACKS AND THAT

KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT.

AND AN INNOCENT MAN FINDS A

NEW LIFE BEHIND BARS.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE HE SPOKE TO

ME AND SAID I HAVE A PLAN FOR

YOUR LIFE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

[APPLAUSE]

PAT: ORAL WELL WROTE 1984

"BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU."

ORAL WELL COULDN'T HAVE DREAMED

WHAT THE NATIONAL SECURITY

AGENCY HAS AVAILABLE TO IT.

WE ASK OURSELVES, DOES THE

GOVERNMENT NEED HUGE

SURVEILLANCE PROGRAMS TO PROTECT

US FROM TERRORIST.

WOULD WE RATHER HAVE BIG BROTHER

WATCHING OR OUR PRIVACY.

TERRY: THOSE ARE THE

QUESTIONS WE ASK AS WE FIND OUT

ABOUT THE TRACKING PROGRAMS.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: U.S. GOVERNMENT IS

SNOOPING ON MILLIONS OF EVERYDAY

AMERICANS AND GOING ON FOR

YEARS.

IT IS NOT WHAT I WOULD EXPECT

OUT OF THE UNITED STATES.

MICROSOFT, APPLE, AND FACEBOOK

ALLOWING FBI TO TAB INTO THEIR

HEELS OF A DISCOVERY BY BRITAIN

GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER, THAT THE USA

MILLIONS OF VERIZON CUSTOMERS.

DIANNE FEINSTEIN DEFENDS IT.

WE HAVE TO PREVENT AMERICANS

FROM BEING KILLED.

REPORTER: WHILE THEY INSIST

IT IS COVERED UNDER THE ACT, THE

ORDER DOESN'T ALLOW TO LISTEN

IN.

INFORMATION IS ON THE OTHER

END OF THE CALL.

IT IS ARE THEY IN CONTACT WITH

FOLKS, IS SOMEBODY IN CONTACT

WITH SOMEBODY THAT WE KNOW TO BE

A KNOWN TERRORIST?

REPORTER: CRITICS ARGUE IT IS

A HUGE OVERREACH.

THEY ARE COLLECTING METADATA

WHICH MEANS THEY KNOW WHERE I AM

ALL THE TIME.

REPORTER: SPYING OPERATION

WAS LIMITED IN SCOPE DURING

GEORGE W. BUSH'S ADMINISTRATION.

PROGRAM THROUGHOUT RAGE FROM A

PRIVACY AND SAFETY IN AMERICA.

I AM A VERIZON CUSTOMER.

THE NAGS NSA TO HAVE MY NUMBER.

REPORTER: GEORGE THOMAS, CBN

NEWS.

PAT: ONE OF OBAMA'S ALLIES

SAID THE ADMINISTRATION HAS LOST

ALL CREDIBILITY IN THIS AREA.

ALL CREDIBILITY.

I BELIEVE IT IS TRUE.

I REALLY THINK I WOULD RATHER

HAVE ONE BOMB BLOW UP SOME PLACE

THAN THE ENTIRE NATION UNDER

SURVEILLANCE.

SOME WHO THINK, STOPPING ONE

TERRORIST BOMB IS MORE

IMPORTANT.

THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT IS

BEING SPENT.

THERE IS ANOTHER GROUP.

IF YOU HAVE EVER HAD AN IRS

AUDIT, BELIEVE ME, EVERY ENTRY

IN YOUR RECORDS IS UNDER

SCRUTINY.

IT CAN BE THE SOURCE OF A

LAWSUIT AGAINST YOU, EVEN

CRIMINAL CHARGES.

BUT THE IRS SAYS OH, OH, WE ARE

SORRY!

DO NOT SEE THE REDEEMING VALUE.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

I LOVE LEIGH ANNE TUOHY NEW SHOW

"FAMILY ADDITION"

TONIGHT 9:00 P.M. EASTERN ON THE

UP TELEVISION NETWORK OR

CBN.COM.

AWESOME STORY.

COMING UP, SOMEONE BORROWED HIS

CAR, THEN CREATED A CRIME.

THIS INNOCENT MAN DID THE TIME.

I FELT HOPELESS.

I FELT ALONE, BETRAYED BY OUR

SYSTEM.

STRIPPED OF EVERYTHING.

THEY HANDED ME A LIFE

SENTENCE NEVER GETTING OUT OF

PRISON.

TERRY: HOW A PHONE CALL FROM

HIS FATHER SET HIM FREE AFTER 13

YEARS BEHIND BARS.

*

PAT: THE FUTURE AHEAD LOOKED

BRIGHT.

ADAM RIOJAS WAS WELL ON HIS WAY

TO MAKING A FORTUNE IN REAL

ESTATE.

HIS GOAL WAS TO DISTINGUISH

HIMSELF AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE FROM

HIS DEADBEAT DAD.

AS AN ADULT, ADAM THOUGHT HE WAS

OUT OF THE REACH OF HIS ABUSIVE

FATHER.

ADAM WAS SADLY MISTAKEN.

THEY HANDED ME A LIFE

SENTENCE.

NEVER GETTING OUT OF PRISON.

SHOCKED REVERBERATE THROUGH

ADAM RIOJAS, JUST

CONVICTED OF A MURDER HE DIDN'T

COMMIT.

I WENT FROM PARADISE TO HELL.

PRETTY TOUGH.

GROWING UP WITHOUT A DAD.

ABUSED LIKE CRAZY.

MY DRIVING FORCES, I WANT TO BE

BETTER, MY FATHER.

FOR ADAM THAT MEANT PURSUING

WEALTH.

BY MID 20S, A SUCCESSFUL REALTOR

IN HAWAII EARNING A THOUSAND

DOLLARS A DAY.

I THOUGHT I WAS

INDESTRUCTIBLE.

A WEEKEND TRIP NEAR HIS

HOMETOWN SAN DIEGO CHANGED HIS

LIFE.

IN 1989 SOMEBODY SHOWS UP,

WANTS TO BORROW THE CAR, COMES

BACK AROUND 4:00, SEE YOU, THANK

YOU.

ADAM THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT.

AFTER RETURNING TO HAWAII,

POLICE OFFICERS ARRESTED HIM.

CHARGED ME I AM BEING

FOR A MURDER IN LOS ANGELES

COUNTY.

I HAVE BEEN TO LOS ANGELES, WHAT

ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

ADAM WAS TOLD EYEWITNESS SAW

HIS CAR AND A MAN MATCHING HIS

DESCRIPTION.

ADAMS ATTORNEY BELIEVED THERE

WOULD BE NO PROBLEM PROVING HIS

INNOCENCE.

NOBODY PICKED YOU OUT OF LINE

UPS OR PICTURES I'LL GET YOU OUT

IN A WEEK.

ONE WEEK TURNED INTO A YEAR.

I FELT HOPELESS, ALONE,

BETRAYED BY OUR SYSTEM.

STRIPPED OF EVERYTHING.

THERE IS PEOPLE THAT GET

YOU.ES D, HEY, JESUS

YOU ARE LIKE ME, IN JAIL, YOU

ARE TELLING ME THAT, HE DOESN'T

LOVE ME.

WHEN ADAM ATTENDED A PRISON

CHURCH SERVICE, HE FOUND THE

HOPE HE LOST.

IF YOU ARE TIRED, ALONE AND

EMPTY, NO HOPE, YOU NEED JESUS.

THE MOMENT THAT I BELIEVED HE

WAS GOD, THAT HE WAS MY

REDEEMER, MY CREATOR, MY BEST

FRIEND, MY SAVIOR IS WHEN

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

I HAD THIS INCREDIBLE,

INCREDIBLE JOY I NEVER HAVE FELT

IN MY LIFE.

MEANWHILE PROSECUTORS HAD

WITNESSES PLACING ADAM AT THE

CRIME.

GO TO THE TRIAL, GET

CONVICTED, GO TO PRISON.

A LIFE SENTENCE

NEVER GETTING OUT OF PRISON.

FIRST THING THAT RESONATED IN MY

MIND WAS THIS.

I WALKED BY COMPLETE FAITH.

AGAIN I SAY REJOICE IN THE LORD,

THESSALONIANS, IN EVERYTHING

GIVE GOD THANKS.

THANK YOU GOD FOR THIS?

NEVER.

THANK YOU GOD FOR THIS?

NEVER.

WORST FIGHT OF MY ENTIRE LIFE IN

MY HEAD HAPPENING, WRESTLING AND

GOING BACK AND FORTH WITH GOD

AND SAYING OKAY, GOD.

I SURRENDER.

OKAY, GOD, IF THIS IS MY LIFE,

THEN IT IS YOURS.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE HE SPOKE TO ME

AND SAID I HAVE A PLAN FOR YOUR

LIFE.

WHAT COULD HE POSSIBLY HAVE FOR

ME IN JAIL?

ADAM MOVED TO MAXIMUM

SECURITY PRISON TO SERVE HIS

SENTENCE.

ABOUT A MONTH AFTER BEING

THERE THE CHAPLAIN APPROACHED ME

AND SAID GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR

LIFE.

HE WANTS YOU TO BE THE INMATE

PASTOR, I AM GOING TO ORDAIN

YOU.

ADAM DEDICATED HIS LIFE

BEHIND BARS TO REACH OTHERS.

HE BELIEVED FOR HIS OWN MIRACLE.

I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO

RELEASE ME.

I KNEW HE WAS A JUST GOD AND HE

HAD A PLAN FOR MY LIFE WITHOUT A

DOUBT.

TWELVE YEARS INTO HIS

SENTENCE ADAM RECEIVES A CALL,

HIS FATHER IS IN A COMA AND

DYING.

BEFORE HE DIES.

HE WAKES UP AND SAYS I AM

GUILTY, MY SON SHOULD NOT BE IN

PRISON, I DID THE CRIME.

MY MOTHER HIRES A PRIVATE

INVESTIGATOR.

THE MAN WHO BORROWED ADAM'S

CAR PICKED UP HIS FATHER.

THE BOARD REVIEWED HIS FINDINGS

AND DECLARED ADAM NOT GUILTY.

AFTER SERVING THIRTEEN YEARS AND

EIGHT MONTHS BEHIND BARS, ADAM

WAS FINALLY A FREE MAN.

IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE FEELING.

SILL ONE THING ADAM NEEDED TO

DO.

I NEVER HAD ENOUGH TIME TO

PROCESS -- THAT MY FATHER HAD

COMMITTED THIS CRIME.

IT WASN'T UNTIL I WAS DOING AN

INTERVIEW, THE REPORTER SAYS,

HAVE YOU FORGIVEN YOUR FATHER?

MAN I LOST IT.

I AM DRIVING HOME THINKING WHOA.

I HAVE TO FORGIVE THIS MAN, HE

BETRAYED EVERYTHING THAT IS

CALLED A FATHER.

EVERYTHING THAT IS CALLED A MAN.

HUMAN.

HE HAS BETRAYED ALL OF THAT.

BOY, I WRESTLED THAT NIGHT

ALMOST LIKE WRESTLING WITH GOD.

I HAD TO FORGIVE HIM.

I DID.

ADAM IS A HUSBAND AND FATHER

NOW AND SERVES AS A PASTOR IN

HOMETOWN OF OCEAN SIDE,

CALIFORNIA.

HE ALLOWED THIS TRAGEDY THAT

WENT THROUGH TO DRAW ME CLOSE TO

HIM, TO TRUST HIM IN EVERYTHING

MY ENTIRE LIFE, MY ENTIRE BEING.

I SEE HE HAD A PLAN NOT TO HURT

ME, E PROSPER ME,

NOURISH ME.

WE JUST HAVE TO TRUST HIM, EVEN

WHEN IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET

THROUGH SOMETHING IT IS RIGHT

THEN WHEN GOD IS SAYING, I HAVE

YOU.

YOU ARE MINE.

PAT: WHAT A TESTIMONY.

YOU KNOW SOMETHING, THE BIBLE

HAS OTHER EXAMPLES, I THINK

JOSEPH IS A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF

SOMEBODY WHO WAS MISTREATED,

SOLD INTO SLAVERY, MADE A SLAVE,

SERVED IN SOMEONE'S HOUSE,

BETRAYED AGAIN.

THROWN INTO PRISON.

SEEMED TO HAVE NO HOPE AND OUT

OF THAT TRAGEDY, HE BECAME THE

RULER OF THE GREATEST NATION ON

EARTH.

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.

YOU DON'T ALWAYS SEE IT.

THING ABOUT JOSEPH, HE STAYED

SWEET.

THINK ABOUT ADAM RIOJAS, HE

DIDN'T GET BITTER.

HE HAD EVERYONE REASON TO BE

CONSUMED WITH HATRED AND

BITTERNESS FOR WHAT HIS FATHER

HAD DONE.

GOD HAD A PLAN AND SHOWED HIM

THAT PLAN.

HE GAVE HIM JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND

A PLACE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

WHO DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE WHO

BETRAYED YOU?

IS IT SOME WOMAN?

SOME MAN WHO BETRAYED YOU?

SOME PARENT WHO BETRAYED YOU?

THE SYSTEM WHO BETRAYED YOU?

HAVE YOU BEEN UNJUSTLY CHARGED

WITH A CRIME?

UNJUSTLY CHARGED WITH SOMETHING

ELSE.

INSIDE YOU HAVE BITTERNESS?

THE LORD SAYS WHEN YOU STAND

PRAYING, IF YOU HAVE ODD AGAINST

ANYONE, FORGIVE THAT YOUR

HEAVENLY FATHER MIGHT FORGIVE

YOU.

SO EASY TO SAY THAT WHEN YOU ARE

NOT THE PRODUCT OF THAT TERRIBLE

AFFRONT.

IF YOU ARE THE PRODUCT, IF IT

HAS BEEN DONE TO YOU, GOD HAS A

PLAN FOR YOU.

HE WILL MAKE IT ALL RIGHT IF YOU

WILL SURRENDER IT TO HIM.

HE IS A GOD OF MIRACLES.

OUT OF THIS FIERY TESTING, YOU

WILL EMERGE LIKE PURE GOLD.

RIGHT NOW, I WANT YOU TO PRAY

WITH ME.

GOD HAS SOMETHING WONDERFUL FOR

YOU.

WE ARE GOING TO FORGIVE WHAT HAS

BEEN DONE TO YOU.

I KNOW IT IS HARD.

BUT GOD, GOD HAD HIS OWN SON

CRUCIFIED WHEN HE WAS INNOCENT,

KILLED AND HUNG ON A CROSS.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY WITH ME,

PRAY THESE WORDS, JESUS, THAT'S

RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME, JESUS YOU

KNOW THE WRONG THAT HAS BEEN

DONE TO ME.

YOU WERE THERE, YOU SAW IT, YOU

KNOW ABOUT IT.

YOU HAVE HEARD MY CRIES, YOU

HAVE HEARD MY PLEADING, NOW,

LORD JESUS, AT THIS MOMENT, I

COME TO YOU AND I CONFESS THAT I

HAVE HAD BITTERNESS, I CONFESS

THAT THERE HAS BEEN RESENTMENT

AND HURT.

I CONFESS THE SINS OF MY LIFE,

BUT LORD, I KNOW YOU DIED TO PAY

THE PRICE FOR ALL OF THIS.

AND I ASK NOW THAT YOU MIGHT

FORGIVE ME, AND I IN TURN

FORGIVE WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO

ME.

I SPECIFICALLY ASK YOU TO BLESS

THE ONE THAT HURT ME.

AT THIS MOMENT I SURRENDER TO

YOU AND RECEIVE YOUR

FORGIVENESS, EVEN AS I FORGIVE

THOSE WHO HAVE INJURED ME.

THANK YOU, LORD, IN JESUS' NAME,

THANK YOU.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I HAVE

TWO LITTLE THINGS I'LL GIVE YOU,

ONE IS A LITTLE TRACK, A LITTLE

TEACHING ON FORGIVENESS.

IT WILL BE IMPORTANT FOR YOU.

OTHER IS "A NEW DAY."

WHAT HAPPEN WHEN YOU JUST

ACCEPTED THE LORD?

I'LL GIVE YOU THESE FREE.

JUST PICK UP YOUR PHONE, LOOK, I

PRAYED WITH PAT.

I FEEL FREE.

I HAVE BEEN SET FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

1-800-759-0700 CALL AND SAY

LOOK, I PRAYED WITH PAT, GAVE MY

HEART TO THE LORD, FREE.

CALL QUICKLY.

TERRY?

TERRY: STILL AHEAD, A FOUR

YEAR OLD HIT IN THE HEAD BY A

FOUL BALL.

COUPLE OF SECONDS LATER IT

AT THAT MOMENT EVERYTHING

CHANGED.

PLUS PHILLY'S STAR ERICK CATS

ON LIVING A DREAM AND NEARLY

STRIKING OUT.

MONDAY ON "700 CLUB."

TERRY: ON SEPTEMBER 2ND,

2009, BEN CARLSON STEPPED INTO

THE BATTER'S BOX.

DURING THE SECOND INNING OF

DOUBLE HEADER HE RIPPED A LINE

INTO THE STANDS AND CHANGED A

LIFE OF HIMSELF AND A FOUR YEAR

OLD SITTING IN THE FIRST ROW.

I ALL DID IS HURT SOMEBODY.

I IMMEDIATELY STARTED CRYING IN

THE BOX.

KID. A LIMP

BASEBALL.ON LOVED

HIS POWERFUL SWING HAD MAJOR

LEAGUE POTENTIAL.

HE BECAME AN ALL AMERICAN AT

MISSOURI STATE.

DRAFTED BY CLEVELAND INDIANS AND

ASSIGNED TO FARM TEAM THE

SCRAPPERS.

GROOMED TO BE PART OF THE

FRANCHISE'S FUTURE.

HE BELIEVED NOTHING COULD STOP

HIM.

YOU COULD SEE THE BIG LEAGUES

AHEAD OF YOU AND EVERYBODY

TELLING YOU HOW GREAT OF A

BASEBALL PLAYER YOU ARE.

BASEBALL CARD THAT COMES OUT

WITH YOUR PICTURE ON IT.

YOURSELF.SPECIAL ABOUT

YOU ACCOMPLISHED

SOMETHING.

THAT IS WHERE I WAS.

DREAM.THE

JUST THREE MONTHS INTO HIS

PROFESSIONAL CAREER THE DREAM

SUDDENLY CAME TO AN END.

IT WAS A NIGHT GAME IN SEPTEMBER

2009, CHAD AND NICOLE SAT WITH

FOUR-YEAR-OLD BOY LUKE IN THE

FRONT ROW WHEN BEN CAME UP TO

BAT.

> NEXT THING I KNEW, PITCHER

A CURVE BALL.

AS A LEFT HANDER, I HIT IT INTO

THE STANDS AND HIT LUKE INTO THE

HEAD.

CHAT STARTED REACTING AND I

DIDN'T QUITE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

COUPLE OF SECONDS LATER, HE HAD

GOTTEN HIT BY THE BASEBALL.

IT WAS PANIC TRYING TO FIGURE

OUT.

YOU COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG,

HE WASN'T RESPONDING.

I SEE HIS PARENTS PICK HIM UP

AND RUN UP THE STAIRS OF THE

STADIUM AND OUT OF THE BALLPARK.

I HAVE NEVER HEARD A STADIUM SO

QUIET.

BEN MANAGED TO FINISH HIS

AT-BAT STRUGGLED THROUGH THE

REST OF HIS GAME AS HOSPITAL

UPDATES WERE LUKE'S CONDITION

WERE PASSED ON.

AFTER THE GAME, BEN LEARNED LUKE

MIGHT NOT LIVE THROUGHOUT NIGHT.

I REMEMBER PRAYING.

A LOT OF PEOPLE, WHEN BAD THINGS

HAPPENED, LORD, SAVE HIS LIFE.

HE WAS UNCONSCIOUS WHEN WE

WERE IN THE ER.

THINGS WENT FROM BAD TO WORSE.

BE, IT WAS JUST A

BASEBALL.

LUKE'S VITAL SIGNS STABILIZE

AND REMAINED IN A COMA AND

OVERCOME WITH GUILT AND WENT TO

CHECK ON HIM.

THAT IS THE FIRST TIME WE MET

HIM FACE TO FACE.

YOU COULD TELL HE WAS A BASEBALL

GAME.

HE WAS IN TEARS, GAVE US A HUG.

THEY ACCEPTED ME INTO THEIR

FAMILY RIGHT THERE.

FOR THEM TO DO THAT WAS SO

AMAZING, MOST PEOPLE MIGHT BLAME

ME AND MOST PEOPLE, YOU KNOW,

THEY MIGHT JUST REJECT ME.

LUKE'S PARENTS DIDN'T BLAME

BEN INSTEAD THEY FORGIVE HIM.

BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP.

LUKE'S CONDITION IMPROVED AND

RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL.

BEN CONTINUED TO PONDER WHAT

HAPPENED A FORCING HIM TO

EVALUATE HIS LIFE.

EVERY SINGLE DAY YOU ARE

EXPECTED TO PRODUCE, SHOW YOUR

TALENTS, THAT THEIR INVESTMENT

IS PAYING OFF.

WHEN YOU ARE DRIVEN BY THAT AND

THINGS AREN'T GOING SO WELL, YOU

START REALLY LOOKING AT WHO YOU

ARE AT A PERSON.

HONEST WITH MYSELF.

AND THAT BROKE ME EVEN MORE.

FREEDOM BECAUSE I

DOING D EVERYTHING I WAS

DIDN'T MATTER.

YOU REALIZE THAT YOU NEED GOD.

YOU REALIZE THAT YOU NEED

SOMEBODY BIGGER AND BETTER THAN

YOURSELF TO LIVE THROUGH YOU.

INDIANS PROMOTED BEN, HITTING

SLUMP CONTINUED AND DRIVE TO

MAJOR LEAGUES STARTED TO FADE.

I REMEMBER GOING OUTSIDE AND

I SAT OUTSIDE THE LOCKER ROOM.

I STARTED BAWLING.

I SAID JESUS, SAVE MY LIFE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE ELSE TO TURN

HE WAS THE ONLY ONE I COULD CALL

ON.

THE ONLY TRUTH I KNEW TO CALL

OUT TO.

THAT DAY WAS LIFE CHANGING.

I TRULY, TRULY BELIEVE THAT WAS

THE DAY THAT GOD GOT A HOLD OF

MY HEART.

BEN'S CONTRACT WASN'T RENEWED

FOR 2010 SEASON.

HE WALKED AWAY AND MARRIED AND

BECAME A DAD.

LITTLE LUKE CONTINUES TO

IMPROVE AND THEY STAY FRIENDS.

WHEN YOU TRULY EXPERIENCE HIM

FOR YOURSELF AND IN THOSE

MOMENTS OF DESPERATION, YOU NEED

A SAVIOR THROUGHOUT LAST YEAR

AND A HALF I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING

HIM, IT HAS BEEN THE MOST

AMAZING JOURNEY I HAVE TAKEN.

I WOULD GIVE UP EVERYTHING IN MY

PAST LIFE TO CONTINUE TO FOLLOW

HIM.

TERRY: I LOVE BEN'S STORY.

IT IS A PICTURE OF EACH OTHER

OUR LIVES.

WE MAY NOT BE PROFESSIONAL

BASEBALL PLAYERS OR THE

OPPORTUNITIES BEN HAS HAD IN HIS

LIFE.

THAT IS NOT WHAT THE STORY IS

ABOUT.

THE STORY IS ABOUT A PRODIGAL

SON WHO CAME TO THE END OF

HIMSELF.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PLACE I KNOW

WHERE I CAN FIND FORGIVENESS.

WHERE I CAN BE WHAT I WAS

CREATED TO BE.

WE ARE ALL PRODIGAL SONS AND

DAUGHTERS.

THAT IS THE WAY IT IS.

GOD HIMSELF, WHEN MOSES SAID WHO

SHALL I SAY IS SENDING ME.

HE SAID TELL THEM I AM.

GOD IS WHATEVER YOUR NEED MIGHT

BE.

HE IS YOUR HEALER.

HE FORGIVES YOU.

HE IS THE RESTORER OF YOUR SOUL,

LOVER OF YOUR SOUL.

HE IS THE PROVIDER FOR

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN YOUR

LIFE.

HE IS NOT ONE THING.

HE IS ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

HE IS THE GREAT I AM.

AND TODAY, TODAY IN YOUR LIFE,

HE WANTS TO MEET YOUR NEEDS.

EARLIER, WE SAW SA STORY OF A

MAN UNFAIRLY SENT TO PRISON.

GOD HAD A PLAN FOR BEN IN THE

MIDST OF HIS SITUATION.

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN OUR

LIVES HAS PURPOSE AND MEANING.

GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH.

HE SEES YOU RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE.

HE KNOWS WHERE YOU HAVE COME

FROM.

HE UNDERSTANDS YOUR

SHORTCOMINGS, THINGS MESSED UP

IN YOUR LIFE.

HE LOVES YOU ANY WAY.

TODAY HE WANTS TO BE THE GREAT I

AM.

GOD IS SAYING TO YOU, COME HOME

TODAY.

OPEN YOUR HEART TO ME.

LET ME SHOW YOU WHO I AM.

LET ME LOVE YOU.

LET ME HEAL YOU.

WILL YOU SAY YES?

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE

KIND OF PEACE THAT BEN FOUND IN

HIS LIFE.

DIDN'T COME FROM THE CAREER HE

THOUGHT WAS SO AMAZING AND HE

THOUGHT MADE HIM SPECIAL.

IT CAME BECAUSE HE SURRENDERED

HIS LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST.

TODAY JESUS WANTS TO BE YOUR

SAVIOR.

WILL YOU PRAY WITH ME.

INVITE JESUS INTO THE MIDST OF

YOUR MESS.

HE IS WAITING FOR YOU.

LET'S PRAY TOGETHER.

JESUS, I HAVE HEARD A LOT ABOUT

YOU.

I HAVE NEVER SURRENDERED MY LIFE

TO YOU.

TODAY I AM COMING TO YOU AND

SAYING I AM A SINNER.

I AM A SINNER SO IN NEED OF A

SAVIOR.

JESUS, SAVE ME.

SAVE ME TODAY.

FORGIVE MY SINS, I AM SO SORRY.

I AM ASKING YOU TO CHANGE ME.

WILL YOU FILL ME WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT?

WILL YOU TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

CHANGE THE WAY I SEE THINGS AND

THINK, MY ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND

WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU ARE

WANTING TO SPEAK INTO MY LIFE.

I WANT EVERYTHING YOU HAVE GOT

TO GIVE ME.

IN RETURN, I AM GIVING YOU THE

LITTLE BIT THAT I AM AND HAVE.

MAKE IT MATTER FOR YOU, GOD.

MAKE MY LIFE MATTER.

THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME.

THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT OF

ETERNAL LIFE.

DEATH HAS NO POWER OVER ME.

I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR.

YOU ARE MY GOD.

MY ALL IN ALL, I LOVE YOU.

THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME, THANK

YOU FOR WAITING FOR ME.

I PRAY THIS TODAY IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

LISTEN, IF YOU JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, WE HAVE SOMETHING WE

WANT TO SEND TO YOU.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW YOU HAVE

COMMITTED YOUR LIFE TO HIM?

THIS IS THE PACKET PAT HAS PUT

TOGETHER CALLED "A NEW DAY."

FILLED WITH WONDERFUL

INFORMATION.

THIS IS YOURS FOR FREE.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

IN BOTH OF OUR STORIES TODAY, WE

HAVE HEARD PEOPLE TALK ABOUT

FORGIVENESS AND THE ROLE IT

PLAYED IN THEIR LIVES.

IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING WITH

FORGIVENESS, WE HAVE A PAMPHLET

WHEN YOU CALL 1-800-759-0700.

PAT?

PAT: THANKS, TERRY.

UP NEXT, FOLKS, WE ARE GOING TO

BRING IT ON WITH YOUR E-MAIL.

MILDRED SAYS I WAS LIVING WITH A

MARRIED MAN AND TOOK PART IN

COMMUNION.

I DID REPENT.

I AM NO LONGER LIVING WITH THIS

PERSON.

ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE, HAVE I

SINNED?

DAMMED MY SOUL?

OR CAN I HAVE FORGIVENESS?

WE'LL HAVE THE ANSWER TO THAT

QUESTION WITH BRING IT ON NEXT.

TERRY: WE WANT TO START OUR

BRING IT ON SESSION MILDRED SAYS

1 CORINTHIANS, 11:27, WHO EVER

DRINKS THIS IN AN UNWORTHY

MATTER EATS AND DRINKS JUDGMENT

TO HIMSELF.

I WAS LIVING WITH A MARRIED MAN,

WENT TO CHURCH WITH HIS FAMILY

AND TOOK PART IN A COMMUNION.

I HAVE SINCE REPENTED AND NO

LONGER LIVING WITH THIS PERSON.

ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE, HAVE I

DAMMED MY SOUL?

PAT: ASK YOURSELF, GOING TO

CHURCH WITH HIS FAMILY, DOES

THAT MEAN WIFE?

CHILDREN.

WEIRD.

ANY WAY.

THE BIBLE SAYS THOSE WHO DO

THIS, SOME OF YOU ARE SICK, SOME

OF YOU DIE, THERE IS A SERIOUS

MATTER.

THERE IS NOTHING QUOTE, DAMMED

YOUR SOUL FOR ALL ETERNITY.

THE LORD IS FORGIVING.

JESUS DIED TO FORGIVE US, NOT TO

CONDEMN US.

IF YOU COME TO THE LORD, ASK HIS

FORGIVENESS, HE WILL FORGIVE,

CLEANSE YOU, YOU ARE FREE OF

THAT RELATIONSHIP.

GET ON WITH LIFE.

TERRY: THIS IS KIMBERLY WHO

SAYS I HAVE RECENTLY GIVEN HIM

OVER TO CHRIST, I AM IN LOVE

WITH JESUS AND BELIEVE IN HIM

WHOLEHEARTEDLY, I AM WONDERING

WHAT I CAN DO TO SPREAD THE WORD

OF JESUS CHRIST AND WHAT HAPPENS

TO THOSE THAT DON'T ACCEPT HIM

AS THEIR SAVIOR.

PAT: BIBLE INDICATES VERY

CLEARLY OUR OWN CONSCIENCE

CONDEMNS US ON THE DAY OF

JUDGMENT.

IT WILL EXCUSE US OR ACCUSE US

WHEN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT.

WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THERE IS NO

HOPE.

YOU WANT TO SPREAD THE LOVE OF

THE LORD, THE HAPPINESS, THE JOY

YOU HAVE, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO

YOU, GIVE REASON FOR THE HOPE

WITHIN YOU.

IF THE LORD HAS SOMETHING MORE,

IT WILL EXPAND GRADUALLY FROM

WHERE YOU ARE.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

LOUIS, EVERYONE SAYS THE

PRICE OF GOLD IS SO HIGH, SHOULD

WE HOLD ON TO OUR GOLD JEWELRY

BECAUSE WE NEED IT FOR FOOD?

WILL THE AMERICAN DOLLAR BE

WORTH NOTHING IN THE FUTURE?

PAT: I DON'T SUBSCRIBE TO

THOSE DOOMSDAY SCENARIOS.

IT WENT $260 AN OUNCE UP TO

$1,800.

IT HAS COME OFF BECAUSE IT

DOESN'T PAY DIVIDENDS.

SOME OF THE BIG BOYS HAVEN'T

BEEN PLAYING AS AVIDEDLY AS THE

PAST.

YES, HOLD ON TO YOUR GOLD

JEWELRY.

IT HAS HAD A JUMP.

I WOULDN'T BE SO CONCERNED ABOUT

THE DOLLAR COMPLETELY LOSING ITS

VALUE.

RIGHT NOW THE DOLLAR HAS BEEN

REMARKABLY STRONG.

I AM AMAZED FRANKLY BECAUSE WE

ARE IN TROUBLE.

THE OTHER GUYS HAVE DONE WORSE

THINGS [LAUGHTER].

RELATIVELY SPEAKING THE DOLLAR

HAS COME UP WELL.

TERRY: THIS IS JEAN, PAT,

AFTER CHRIST COMES BACK TO EARTH

AND SETS UP HIS KINGDOM, WILL

THOSE ALREADY IN HEAVEN RETURN

OR ONCE AGAIN LIVE ON EARTH?

PAT: BIBLE SAYS HE IS GOING

TO MAKE A NEW HEAVEN AND NEW

EARTH.

I THINK THE WHOLE SYSTEM WE HAVE

IS REORDERED.

BUT I THINK WE'LL RETURN WITH

HIM.

HE'LL COME AND SAINTS WILL BE

WITH HIM.

I THINK HE IS GOING TO REIGN AND

RULE ON EARTH.

HE'LL RAIN IN THE NEW JERUSALEM,

A PLACE OF JOY AND YOU KNOW, IT

IS LIKE WHAT IS HEAVEN AND WHERE

IS HEAVEN?

HE IS GOING TO MAKE A NEW HEAVEN

AND NEW EARTH.

WHOLE UNIVERSE IS REORDERED.

AT THAT POINT, I DON'T KNOW THE

ANSWER.

TERRY: HE DID SUCH A GOOD

JOB THE FIRST TIME.

IT IS GOING TO BE WONDERFUL.

PAT: WITHOUT SIN.

[LAUGHTER].

TERRY: THIS IS KATY, WHERE

BAPTISM BLE THEY SAYS

IS ONLY BY EMERSION.

PAT: READ ROMANS CHAPTER 6.

BURIED HIM IN BAPTISM AND RAISED

IN NEWNESS IN LIFE.

YOU DON'T GET BURIED WHEN YOU

ARE SPRINKLED.

SPRINKLING CAME ABOUT BECAUSE OF

INFANT BAPTISM.

YOU CAN'T DUNK AN INFANT WITHOUT

THEM FREAKING OUT.

JOHN THE BAPTIST BAPTIZED IN A

RIVER.

ALLBOL OF IT IS

TALKING ABOUT

PA

IT,LOWING WE ARE

RIGHT.

PAT: THEY HAD SOME THAT WOULD

KNEEL AND BE BAPTIZED.

I WOULDN'T GET HUNG UP ON THE

WAY OF DOING THINGS.

YOUR HEART.
