YOU'RE TRAPPED, THINKING

THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO

LIFE.

Wendy: CONFESSIONS FROM

AN APOSTATE.

WHY HE IS PUTTING HIS LIFE

ON THE LINE FOR A DREAM.

THIS GOD HAS TO BE THE

TRUE GOD.

Wendy: PLUS, THE

REVOLUTIONARY NEW PROGRAM

FROM THE CREATOR OF THE

SOUTH BEACH DIET.

DR. ARTHUR AGATSTON SHARES

HIS LATEST TIPS FOR HEALTHY

LIVING ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, CONGRESS

MAY WELL BE READY TO GET A

BIPARTISAN DEAL ON

IMMIGRATION.

LONG OVERDUE.

BUT THERE IS GOING TO BE A

LOT OF POLITICAL HORSE

TRADING BACK AND FORTH OVER

THIS ISSUE.

Terry: THAT'S EXACTLY

RIGHT.

EVEN THOUGH LAWMAKERS FROM

BOTH PARTIES SUPPORT THE

BILL, THERE IS STILL SERIOUS

QUESTIONS ABOUT IT, AND IT

MAY PROVE TO BE VERY

DIFFICULT TO PASS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IT'S A

LANDMARK BILL THAT COULD PUT

MILLIONS ON THE PATH TO

CITIZENSHIP.

TIMES CHANGE, AND THE

IMMIGRATION SYSTEM HAS TO

CHANGE WITH THOSE TIMES.

Reporter: THE SENATE

VOTED 82-15 TO MOVE THE

LEGISLATION FORWARD TO

DEBATE.

BUT THAT IS ONLY THE FIRST

OF MANY HURTLES.

MANY REPUBLICANS WHO VOTED

YES SAY THEY WON'T SUPPORT

THE BILL IN THE FINAL BILL

UNLESS THE BORDER SECURITY

IS STRENGTHENED.

ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF

BORDER SECURITY, I'M

CONCERNED IT DOESN'T GO FAR

ENOUGH.

Reporter: THE BILL WILL

OFFER A 13-YEAR PATH TO

CITIZENSHIP FOR THE

11 MILLION IMMIGRANTS WHO

HAVE OVERSTAYED THEIR VISAS,

OR ARRIVED IN THE U.S.

ILLEGALLY SINCE THE END OF

2011.

THEY WOULD BE BE REQUIRED TO

PAY FINES AND BACK TAXES,

AND THEY COULDN'T

PARTICIPATE IN ANY

GOVERNMENT SOCIAL PROGRAMS

DURING THE PROCESS.

President Obama: THIS

IS NO CAKEWALK, BUT IT IS

THE ONLY WAY WE CAN MAKE

SURE THAT EVERYONE WHO IS

HERE IS PLAYING BY THE SAME

RULES AS ORDINARY FAMILIES.

Reporter: AND THE PLAN

ALSO EXTENDS VISAS FOR

LOW-SKILLED WORKERS AND

ENTREPRENEURS, AND REQUIRES

THE EMPLOYERS TO CHECK THE

LEGAL STATUS OF EVERY

WORKER.

THE FAILURE TO HAVE A

RATIONAL IMMIGRATION PROGRAM

WILL CHOKE THIS ECONOMY AND

IS NOT A GOOD IDEA.

Reporter: BUT WHILE

MANY LAWMAKERS SEEM READY TO

MOVE FORWARD AND BEGIN

DEBATING THIS BIPARTISAN

BILL, CONSERVATIVE LEADERS

AND VOTERS STILL HAVE

OBJECTIONS TO THE MEASURE,

WHICH MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR

REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS.

IT IS STILL UNCLEAR IF IT

WILL PASS IN THE HOUSE.

BUT THE BILL COULD BE

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S BIG

SECOND-TERM ACCOMPLISHMENT,

AND MANY REPUBLICANS HOPE IT

WILL HELP THEM IMPROVE THEIR

IMAGE WITH LATINO VOTERS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT WAS

INTERESTING, THE VIRGINIA

SENATOR, TIM KAINE, THE

DEMOCRAT, MADE A SPEECH IN

SPANISH ON THE FLOOR.

VERY INTERESTING.

IT LOOKS AS IF THEY HAVE GOT

TO GET SOMETHING DONE.

THERE IS SOME THOUGHT THAT

BRINGING THESE PEOPLE IN AT

CITIZENS MIGHT NOT BE THE

GREATEST IDEA, BECAUSE THAT

GIVES THEM, IN A SENSE,

GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITY.

THEY CAN CHANGE THE

STRUCTURE OF OUR

GOVERNMENT.

IF THEY DON'T HAVE A VOTE,

THEY COULD STILL HAVE ALL OF

THE PRIVILEGES OF

CITIZENSHIP WITHOUT BEING

FULL CITIZENS, AND THEN

THEIR CHILDREN WOULD BE

CITIZENS WHEN THEY GET TO

THE AGE OF VOTING AT 18, OR

WHATEVER NUMBER THERE IS.

BUT IT JUST SEEMS LIKE THE

REPUBLICANS WOULD BE SANE TO

INSANE TO KNOCK THIS THING

DOWN.

IT WOULD BE SO FOOLISH

POLITICALLY.

I THINK THEY ALL REALIZE

THAT THE HISPANIC POPULATION

IS SO LARGE IN THIS COUNTRY,

THAT THEY HAVE TO DO

SOMETHING.

IF THEY APPEAR TO BE

ANTI-IMMIGRANT AND

ANTI-HISPANIC, THEY WILL

LOSE EVERY ELECTION.

THEY WILL TINKER WITH IT A

LITTLE BIT, A LITTLE CUT

HERE AND SNIP HERE, BUT THE

BILL IS GOING TO PASS

BECAUSE THERE IS TOO MUCH

SUPPORT FOR IT OTHERWISE.

WHILE THE SENATE FOCUSES ON

IMMIGRATION, THE CASE

AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT'S

SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM IS

GOING TO COURT.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: PAT, THE AMERICAN

CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION IS

SUING THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION OVER THE

N.S.A.'S PROGRAM OF

COLLECTING PHONE AND

INTERNET RECORDS.

THE ACLU IS DEMANDING THAT

THE ADMINISTRATION END THE

PROGRAM AND PURGE ALL

RECORDS COLLECTED.

TUESDAY, INTELLIGENCE

OFFICIALS TRIED TO SUE THE

CONGRESS IN AN EXTENDED

BRIEFING.

THE F.B.I., JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT, AND OTHER

INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS

TESTIFIED THAT THE PROGRAMS

ARE NE NECESSARY TO PROTECT

AMERICA AND DO NOT VIOLATE

PRIVACY RIGHTS.

BUT LEGISLATORS ARE STILL

WORRIED ABOUT THE INVASION

OF PRIVACY, AND THEY BELIEVE

THE COURTS AND CONGRESS

SHOULD HAVE GREATER

OVERSIGHT.

REGENT UNIVERSITY'S PAUL

BONICCELLI SAY THE PROGRAMS

ARE HURTING THE COUNTRIES

INTERNATIONALLY.

THE OTHER COUNTRIES DON'T

LIKE THE HYPOCRISY.

THEY NOTE THAT THE UNITED

STATES IS THE PLACE THAT

RECEIVES ASYLUM-SEEKERS, AND

WE TALK ABOUT PROTECTING

PEOPLE, AND YET WE LOOK LIKE

WE'RE DOING EXACTLY WHAT WE

CONDEMN OTHER COUNTRIES

FOR.

Lee: AND THE

SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL HAS

HELPED THE SALES OF A

CLASSIC NOVEL ABOUT BIG

GOVERNMENT.

GEORGE ORWELLS 1984 HAS SHOT

UP.

IT TALKS ABOUT A TOTALIAN

GOVERNMENT, AND THE THEME OF

THE BOOK, THE GOVERNMENT

KEEPS AN EYE ON EVERYONE.

JOHN BOEHNER DOES NOT BUY

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S TIMELINE

ON THE I.R.S. SCANDAL.

THE PRESIDENT SAID HE FIRST

HEARD ABOUT THE AGENCY'S

TARGETING OF CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS BY WATCHING NEWS

REPORTS ON MAY 10th.

THAT'S THE DAY THAT THE

STORY BROKE.

JOHN BOEHNER SAYS THAT IS

INCONCEIVABLE.

MANY OF HIS SENIOR STAFF

KNEW ABOUT IT AND HAVE KNOWN

ABOUT IT FOR SOME TIME.

I NI KNOW HOW I OPERATE

WITH MY SENIOR STAFF.

IT WOULD BE INCONCEIVABLE

THAT MY STAFF WOULD KNOW IT

AND I WOULDN'T.

IT DOESN'T PASS THE STRAIGHT

FACE TEST.

Lee: ACCORDING TO THE

INSPECTOR GENERAL'S REPORT,

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS WERE

TARGETED DURING THE 2010 AND

2012 ELECTIONS.

HALF OF THE PUBLIC BELIEVED

THAT THE WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIALS KNEW WHAT THE

I.R.S. WAS DOING, AND 58%

DISAPPROVE OF THE WAY THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS HANDLED

THE SITUATION.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS

FIGHTING NEW ALLEGATIONS

THAT IT COVERED A SEX

SCANDAL DURING HILLARY

CLINTON'S TENURE.

THEY BLAMED SENIOR OFFICIALS

FOR INTERFERING IN THE

INVESTIGATIONS.

ONE ALLEGATION SAYS A U.S.

AMBASSADOR OFTEN DITCHED HIS

SECURITY DETAIL TO SOLICIT

SEXUAL FAVORS IN A PARK NEAR

THE EMBASSY.

AND IT ALLEGE THAT THREE OF

CLINTON'S GROUPS SOLICITED

PROSTITUTES WHILE ON

OFFICIAL TRIPS.

ú WE TAKE EVERY ALLEGATION

OF MISCONDUCT SERIOUSLY AND

INVESTIGATE THEM

THOROUGHLY.

Lee: THE STATE

DEPARTMENT ARGUES THE CASES

WERE ALL INVESTIGATED AND

THE AGENTS WERE CLEARED OR

PUNISHED.

TEXAS REPUBLICAN SENATOR TED

CRUZ SAYS TOO MUCH

GOVERNMENT RED TAPE IS

HURTING OUR ECONOMY.

CRUZ SAYS WASHINGTON NEEDS

TO CUT BACK ON THE NUMBER OF

REGULATIONS, AND HE SAYS

THEY'RE HURTING SMALL

BUSINESSES THE MOST.

WHEN YOU'RE PUTTING NEARLY

$11,000 PER EMPLOY IN

REGULATORY BURDEN ON BRAND

NEW START-UPS, THAT HAS A

PREDICTABLE IMPACT OF

KILLING INNOVATION, KILLING

ENTREPRENEURSHIP, AND

KILLING JOBS.

AT LEAST FOUR MAJOR FIRES

ARE BLAZING ACROSS

COLORADO.

THE WORST IS IN THE BLACK

FOREST AREA NEAR COLORADO

SPRINGS.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN FORCED TO EVACUATE, AND

AS MANY AS 60 HOMES AND

BUILDINGS ARE DAMAGED OR

DESTROYED.

OUR MANDATORY EVACUATION

AREA IS ABOUT 24,000 ACRES.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE ESTIMATING

THE FIRE TO HAVE CONSUMED

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 7500 AND

8,000 ACRES.

IT HAS AFFECTED A POPULATION

OF 5,469.

THEY HAD THE ROAD BLOCKED

OFF.

THEY WOULDN'T LET US IN.

AND FINALLY I PERSUADED THEM

TO GET ME GO AND GET OUR

DOGS.

Lee: DRY, WINDY

CONDITIONS ARE FUELING THAT

BLAZE.

OFFICIALS ESTIMATE THAT THE

BLACK FOREST IN COLORADO --

THAT FIRE THERE HAS ALREADY

BURNED AROUND 8,000 ACRES.

IT IS ZERO PERCENT

CONTAINED, WE'RE TOLD.

NEW YORK CITY MAYOR MICHAEL

BLOOMBERG IS DEFENDING HIS

SODA BAN IN COURT.

A STATE APPEALS COURT IS

CONSIDERING WHETHER TO ALLOW

NEW YORK CITY TO BAN

OVER-SIZED SODAS AND OTHER

LARGE SUGARY DRINKS AT CITY

RESTAURANTS.

A STATE COURT JUDGE BARRED

THE CITY FROM ENACTING THAT

BAN.

IT RULED THERE WERE TOO MANY

LOOPHOLES.

THE CRITICS CALL THE BAN

GOVERNMENT OVERREACH, BUT

THE BLOOMBERG ADMINISTRATION

IS RACING AHEAD, TRYING TO

GET IT OVERTURNED BEFORE THE

MAYOR'S FINAL TERM ENDS IN

LESS THAN SIX MONTHS.

Pat: BLOOMBERG IS SO

RICH.

HE IS ABSOLUTELY LOADED.

IN THE $7 BILLION, OR

$8 BILLION RANGE OR MORE.

HE IS VERY, VERY WEALTHY.

AND THE VALUE OF HIS

HOLDINGS HAVE GONE UP.

THE BLOOMBERG TERMINALS ARE

A MUST FOR EVERY TRADER ON

WALL STREET.

AND HE HAS MADE A FORTUNE

WITH HIM.

BUT WHY HE IS ON THIS KICK

ABOUT SODAS.

IF PEOPLE WANT BIG SODAS,

THAT'S THEIR BUSINESS.

IT IS RIDICULOUS.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, TOUGH

ECONOMIC TIMES CAN EITHER

BREAK A CHURCH CONGREGATION

OR MAKE IT STRONGER.

THEY ARE LOSING HOMES,

LOSING HOUSES BECAUSE OF THE

STRESSTRESS, AND ALL OF

THOSE THINGS.

YEAH, ALL OF IT COULD CRUSH

US, BUT WE HAVE A GOD WHO IS

BIGGER THAN THAT.

Terry: SEE WHY SOME

CHURCHES THRIVE DURING

RECESSIONS.

THEN LATER ON, GLUTEN, IT IS

THE NEW BUZZ WORD FOR

HEALTHY LIVING.

FIND OUT HOW TO MAKE IT WORK

FOR YOU AND NOT AGAINST YOU

WHEN SOUTH BEACH DIET

DR. ARTHUR AGATSTON JOINS US

LATER.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

I HAVE THIS LITTLE THING IN

MY EAR.

IT IS NOT A HEARING AID.

IT IS A LITTLE VOICE FROM

THE CONTROL ROOM WHO GOES

AND CHECKS FACTS.

MR. BLOOMBERG HAD ABOUT

$8 BILLION TWO OR THREE

YEARS AGO.

NOW, ACCORDING TO THE LITTLE

THING IN MY EAR,

$27 BILLION.

HE IS ONE OF THE RICHEST MEN

IN THE UNITED STATES.

SO HIS HOLDINGS, THAT

BLOOMBERG SYSTEM, HAS BEEN

VERY, VERY SUCCESSFUL AND

VERY POPULAR.

WHY DIDN'T HE JUST COUNT HIS

CHIPS INSTEAD OF MESSING

WITH PEOPLE'S SOFT DRINKS.

I JUST CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

ANYHOW, HE HAS A FEW MORE

MONTHS TO GO, AND NEW

YORKERS LIKE HIM.

HE HAS BEEN A GOOD GUY.

NOBODY EQUALS EDG ED KOCH,

THOUGH, WHO IS A GOOD

FRIEND, HE AND RUDY

GIULANI.

WE'VE HAD SOME GOOD MAYORS

UP IN NEW YORK.

SOME HAVE BEEN GOOD AND SOME

NOT SO GOOD.

I THINK BLOOMBERG HAS BEEN A

REAL GOOD MAYOR, BUT, MY, IS

HE RICH.

YOU WOULD EXPECT A RECESSION

TO CREATE HARD TIMES MOST

EVERYWHERE.

THAT IS NOT ALWAYS THE

CASE.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS, HARD

TIMES ARE OFTEN THE BEST

TIME FOR EVANGELICAL

CHURCHES.

Reporter: THROUGHOUT

HISTORY, THE BELIEF HAS BEEN

WHEN THE GOING GETS ROUGH,

THE HARDEST HIT OFTEN GET

GOING TO CHURCH.

ONE ECONOMICS PROFESSOR

FOUND SINCE THE 1960s, IN

ALL OF THE RECESSIONS,

EVANGELICAL CHURCHES ON

AVERAGE HAVE GROWN ABOUT

50%.

PASTOR TODD LANE SAYS THAT

PLAY OUT EACH WEEK AT

GATEWAY CHURCH IN THE

DALLAS, FORT WORTH AREA.

HE SAYS THIS RECESSION HAS

SHAKEN MANY PEOPLE AND

STOLEN THEIR PEACE.

THEY'RE LOOKING IN THE

WORLD FOR SOMETHING TO

SATISFY THEIR SOLD, AND

THEY'RE ONLY FINDING IT IN

THE TRUE SOURCE, AND THAT'S

IN JESUS.

Reporter: GATEWAY NOW

COUNTS THE MEMBERSHIP AT

21,000.

THERE HAS BEEN QUITE THE

SPIKE IN OUR ATTENDANCE.

Reporter: IT IS AN

INTERESTING FACT THAT

ECONOMIC HARD TIMES ARE

OFTEN THE BEST OF TIMES FOR

EVANGELICAL CHURCHES,

SOARING ATTENDANCE AND ALL.

OTHERS, THOUGH, ARE NEARLY

TRUST.

AND THAT TESTS THE TRUE

METTLE OF THE CONGREGATION.

WEST VALLEY CHURCH NORTH OF

LOS ANGELES HAS BEEN

TESTED.

A HUGE BUILDING PROJECT

SADDLED THE CHURCH WITH A

SEVEN FIGURE MORTGAGE JUST

AS THE RECESSION HIT.

THE PASTOR SAID THEY

COULDN'T MAKE ENDS MEET AS

MEMBERS LOST JOBS AND HOMES,

AND THE CHURCH LOST

MEMBERS.

WE WERE LOSING ABOUT FOUR

FAMILIES A WEEK THAT LOST

THEIR JOBS.

THERE WERE PEOPLE WHO HAD TO

MOVE OUT OF THE L.A. AREA

FOR A CHEAPER PLACE TO

LIVE.

Reporter: IT FORCED

PAINFUL CUTS.

WE LAID OFF ALL OF OUR

STAFF, FROM ABOUT 17 DOWN TO

FOUR.

THE FOUR LEFT HAD TO TAKE A

10% CUT AND NO RAISES SINCE

THEN.

Reporter: CHURCH MEMBER

AND RETAILER CINDY BELL

WATCHED ONE HOMEOWNER AFTER

ANOTHER GO DOWN.

IT IS REALLY HARD TO SEE

PEOPLE LOSE A HOUSE.

Reporter: BUT SHE SAW

TIME AND AGAIN THOSE HARD

HIT REALIZED THEY HAD A

CHOICE.

THEY COULD MOVE TOWARDS

GOD OR AWAY FROM HIM.

Reporter: THIS

CONGREGATION DECIDED TO MOVE

TOWARDS HIM.

LAYOFFS, LOSING HOUSES

BECAUSE OF THE STRESS, AND

ALL OF THOSE THINGS -- YEAH,

ALL OF IT COULD CRUSH US,

BUT WE HAVE A GOD WHO IS

BIGGER THAN THAT.

THROUGH THE STRUGGLES

THAT WE'VE GONE THROUGH, WE

HAVE BECOME STRONGER.

AND THAT'S HOW WE'VE DONE

WELL.

Reporter: AND THOUGH

MANY WERE HURTING, THEY

TURNED TO HURT OTHERS.

IT WAS ECONOMIC HARDSHIP

THAT SORT OF BROUGHT ME TO

MY KNEES.

Reporter: BIANCA

JACOBSON IS ONE OF THOSE

LIFTED UP BY THE STRENGTH OF

THE CONGREGATION.

FOR FIVE YEARS, I WAS

STRUGGLING, IN AND OUT OF

WORK.

IN AND OUT OF WORK.

PEOPLE WOULD PRAY WITH ME,

AND IT GAVE ME A TREMENDOUS

AMOUNT OF FAITH.

Reporter: AND THE

REWARD FOLLOWED WHEN BIANCA

SCORED THE BEST JOB SHE EVER

HAD.

IT HAS LED OTHERS TO

CHANGE.

LIKE RICHARD.

I LET GO OF MEYE MY

SECOND JOB.

I'M HOME MORE WITH MY FAMILY

AND HERE AT CHURCH MORE

OFTEN.

Reporter: PERHAPS THE

BIGGEST EXAMPLE CAME WHEN

SINGLE MOM, DANA, AND HER

FOUR SONS SHOWED UP AT

CHURCH.

THEY MOVED OUT TO CALIFORNIA

ONLY TO LEARN THEIR EXPECTED

WORK FELL THROUGH.

I FOUND MYSELF WITHOUT A

JOB, NEW PLACE, NOT A LOT OF

FAMILY OUT HERE.

Reporter: THE CHURCH

RUSHED TO HER AID.

IT HELPED ME

FINANCIALLY.

IT HELPED EMOTIONALLY.

Reporter: CHURCH PEOPLE@Ñ

FED HER JOB LEAD AND

REFERENCES.

AND EVEN THE PASTOR CHIPPED

IN.

HE HELPED ME WITH MY

RESUME.

Reporter: WHICH LED TO

A JOB IN A LAYER'S OFFICE.

> LAYER -- LAWYER'S

OFFICE.

EVEN THROUGH OUR HARDEST

CHALLENGES, HE HAS ALWAYS

BEEN THERE.

WE'RE LITERALLY, IN THE

SERVICE, GIVING THE

OPPORTUNITY THAT NEED TO

STAND UP, AND THE PEOPLE

AROUND IN THE SERVICE TO GO

AND MEET THAT NEED.

Reporter: KIRBY ADMITS

THAT SUCH PEOPLE SHINE IN

DARK TIMES, AND HURTING

SOULS WILL BE DRAWN TO THAT

LIGHT.

IT IS THE GREATEST OF

OPPORTUNITIES AND THE

BLEAKEST OF TRAGEDIES AND

STRUGGLES.

IT IS A GREAT TIME FOR

CATCHING FISH.

IT IS A GREAT TIME FOR

MINISTRY.

Reporter: WHETHER THEY

PROSPER OR THEY'RE BROUGHT

LOW, IT SEEMS IN THE BEST

CHURCHES, HARD TIMES SOFTEN

HEARTS.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM WEST HILLS,

CALIFORNIA.

Pat: I WAS YOUNG AND

NOW OLD, AND I HAVE NEVER

SEEN THE RIGHTEOUS BEING

FORSAKEN.

AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT

WE'RE SEEING, THE RIGHTEOUS

HAVE NEVER BEEN FORSAKEN.

IN HARD TIMES, GOD'S PEOPLE

COME TOGETHER AND IT MAKES A

HUGE DIFFERENCE.

TERRY HAS SOMETHING

INTERESTING FOR US.

AN INTERESTING GUEST, WHO

HAS BEEN IN HERE BEFORE, AND

HAS A FABULOUS DIET.

Terry: HE IS GOING TO

BE COMING UP.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

GLUTEN.

A LOT OF PEOPLE SUFFER FROM

THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK

AT THAT AND HOW TO UTILIZE

IT OR NOT UTILIZE IT IN OUR

DIETS.

Pat: HE IS FAMOUS FOR

THE SOUTH BEACH DIET.

IT JUST WAS HUGE, HUGE.

VERY CHARMING MAN.

I THINK YOU'LL ENJOY TALKING

TO HIM.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

TALK WITH HIM IN A LITTLE

BIT, BUT COMING UP, A DEVOUT

MUSLIM WHO BEGAN TO HAVE

STRANGE DREAMS.

THERE WAS A FIGURE IN THE

BACKGROUND SITTING ON A

ROCK, AND HE WAS FISHING FOR

ME.

Terry: FIND OUT WHO HE

SAW AND WHAT HE HEARD.

THAT'S NEXT.

*

Pat: FOR TWO YEARS,

ANTONIO SANTANA LIVED AS A

DEVOUT MUSLIM.

ANTONIO PRAYED FIVE TIMES A

DAY.

HE READ THE QURAN.

HE EVEN CHANGED HIS NAME TO

AN ISLAMIC ONE.

BUT DURING HIS YEARS AS A

MUSLIM, ANTONIO NEVER FOUND

GOD.

INSTEAD, GOD FOUND ANTONIO.

EVERY LITTLE BOY NEEDS

THE IMAGE OF HIS FATHER.

THAT'S WHO MY DAD IS.

THROUGHOUT ALL MY LIFE, I

GUESS I WAS ALWAYS SEARCHING

FOR THAT FATHER FIGURE.

I NEVER HAD IT.

Reporter: ANTONIO

SANTANA GREW UP NEVER

KNOWING HIS BIOLOGICAL

FATHER.

MY MOM WAS ALWAYS AT

WORK, AND MY STEPDAD WAS

ALWAYS GONE.

I KIND OF DID WHAT I WANTED

TO DO.

Reporter: HE HAD LITTLE

DIRECTION IN LIFE, BUT

MANAGED TO AVOID THE

NEGATIVE INFLUENCES IN HIS

NEIGHBORHOOD.

I PICKED UP THE

BASKETBALL, AND BEING ON THE

BASKETBALL COURT PLAYED A

VITAL PART IN MY LIFE IN

KEEPING DRUGS OUT OF MY LIFE

FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

Reporter: BUT HE

COULDN'T AVOID THEM

FOREVER.

I MADE IT ALL THE WAY TO

MY SENIOR YEAR IN HIGH

SCHOOL, AND THAT'S WHEN I

STARTED SMOKING MARIJUANA,

AND STARTED HANGING OUT WITH

PEOPLE I SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN

HANGING OUT WITH, GETTING IN

TROUBLE.

I WOULD SKIP CLASSES TO GO

TO SMOKE WEED.

IT WENT DOWNHILL FROM

THERE.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY HE

WAS KICKED OUT OF HIGH

SCHOOL.

THERE WAS NO ONE TO GUIDE

ANTONIO IN HIS DECISIONS,

CERTAINLY NOT HIS OWN

FAMILY.

THEY NEVER REALLY SAT ME

DOWN TO TELL ME ABOUT

MYSELF, TO TELL ME I WAS

MESSING MY LIFE UP.

I WISH THEY WOULD HAVE.

BECAUSE MAYBE I WOULD HAVE

AVOIDED SO MANY THINGS LATER

ON IN LIFE.

I WENT TO JAIL A NUMBER OF

TIMES.

THE LAST THING YOU HEAR WHEN

YOU GO TO JAIL IS THE SOUND

OF THAT JAIL CELL DOOR CLOSE

BEHIND YOU.

YOU'RE JUST TRAPPED WITH

YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS.

YOU'RE TRAPPED THINKING THAT

THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING

MORE TO LIFE.

I HAD THIS VOID IN MY

HEART.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO FILL

IT.

I COULDN'T FILL IT, NO

MATTER WHAT DRUG, NO MATTER

WHAT GIRL, NO MATTER WHAT --

NOTHING COULD FILL THAT VOID

IN MY HEART.

ALL OF THAT STUFF JUST LED

ME FURTHER INTO DEPRESSION.

I NEEDED A CHANGE IN LIFE.

Reporter: HE FOUND WORK

AT A LOCAL FACTORY.

IT WAS THERE HE BEGAN TO

SEARCH FOR GOD.

I HAD A FEW FRIENDS THAT

WOULD SMOKE MARIJUANA WITH

ME, THAT WERE CLAIMING TO BE

BE MUSLIM.

THEY TOLD ME ABOUT IT, AND I

WAS, LIKE, OKAY,

INTERESTING.

SO WHEN I GOT OFF WORK, I

WENT TO THE MOSQUE.

I WAS EXCITED ABOUT GOING TO

THE MOSQUE BECAUSE I WANTED

TO LEARN ABOUT WHO GOD IS.

THIS LITTLE ARAB MAN COMES

WALKING OUT, AND HE TOLD ME

ISLAM COULD CHANGE MY LIFE.

AND THAT'S WHAT I NEEDED, A

CHANGE IN MY LIFE, A CHANGE

IN MY HEART.

I STARTED OFF WITH A

DIFFERENT JOURNEY IN LIFE.

I STOPPED CUSSING, I STOPPED

PREMARITAL SEX, I STOPPED

SMOKING MARIJUANA.

I HAD A NEW IDENTITY, AND I

WAS A MUSLIM.

Reporter: HE DEVOTED

HIMSELF TO ISLAM, YET

SOMETHING STILL WAS

MISSING.

I WAS PRAYING FIVE TIMES

A DAY, BUT EVERY TIME I

KNELT DOWN IN PRAYER, IT

FELT LIKE I WAS PRAYING TO A

BRICK WALL.

SO IT MADE ME EVEN MORE

DEPRESSED.

EVEN THOUGH I WAS TRYING TO

BE RELIGIOUS, I FELT GOD

FURTHER AND FURTHER AND

FURTHER AWAY.

Reporter: HE STARTED

HAVING STRANGE DREAMS.

I DREMPT I WAS SWIMMING

IN A BIG OCEAN, ALL BY

MYSELF.

AND THERE WAS A FIGURE, IN

THE BACKGROUND, SITTING ON A

ROCK, AND HE WAS FISHING FOR

ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO THAT

FIGURE WAS BECAUSE I

COULDN'T CATEGORIZE HIM AT

THAT MOMENT AT JESUS

CHRIST.

BUT I HAD AN IMPRESSION THAT

THAT WAS JESUS.

I WAS TRYING TO MAKE SENSE

OF IT.

AT THE SAME TIME, I COULDN'T

EXPLAIN IT.

Reporter: THE DREAMS

CONTINUED.

ONE DAY ON THE STREET, HE

MET SOME CHRISTIAN

EVANGELISTS.

ONE OF THE GENTLEMAN, HE

GAVE ME THE BIBLE.

HE TOLD ME TO READ THIS ONE

VERSE, READ IT OUT LOUD.

HE POINTED ME TO JOHN 14:

6.

WHEN I READ IT, I WAS

STUNNED.

I READ, JESUS SAYS, "I AM

THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE

LIFE."

I SAID, I'M SEEKING AT THE

TRUTH.

Reporter: THE

EVANGELIST PRAYED FOR

ANTONIO TO FIND THE TRUTH HE

SOUGHT.

OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, HE

STRUGGLED TO UNDERSTAND

JESUS.

I AM ASKING GOD, DOES HE

LOVE ME BECAUSE I'M TIRED OF

BEING DEPRESSED AND I'M

TIRED OF PRAYING.

I SAY, GOD, WHERE ARE YOU?

AND I HEAR A KNOCK ON THE

DOOR, AND IT TURNED OUT TO

BE MY UNCLE RICKY.

AND HE ONLY SAID TO THINGS

TO ME.

AND HE SAID THE LORD LOVES,

AND THEN HE WALKED AWAY.

IT MADE ME LOOK UP THE WORD

LOVE IN THE QURAN, AND IT

LEADS TO STIPULATIONS.

AND I LOOKED THE WORD LOVE

UP IN THE BIBLE, AND I READ

THAT GOD DEMONSTRATED HIS

LOVE FOR ME, AND THAT LOVE

LED HIS SON TO DIE FOR ME.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WOW, THIS

GOD HAS TO BE THE TRUE GOD.

Reporter: ANTONIO FOUND

WHAT HE HAD BEEN SEEKING.

I BELIEVE IN THE JESUS OF

THE BIBLE.

BECAUSE I HAD A SENSE OF

PEACE.

I HAD A SENSE OF NO MATTER

WHAT HAPPENS IN MY LIFE,

WHEREVER I'M HEADED, GOD HAS

MY BACK.

I JUST BECAME SO EN

ENRAPTURED STUDYING GOD.

Reporter: HE ENROLLED

IN MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE TO

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE WORD OF

GOD.

I WANT TO SERVE IN THE

CHURCH FULL-TIME, TO HELP

PEOPLE SEE THEIR NEED FOR

JESUS, TO HELP BROKEN

FAMILIES, TO HELP MINISTER

TO A LOST AND DYING

GENERATION, A FATHERLESS

GENERATION, TO BE A BIG

BROTHER TO THE BROTHERLESS.

THAT SEARCH FOR MY FATHER

DEFINITELY WAS ALWAYS A VOID

IN MY LIFE, BUT THE

SCRIPTURE IS VERY TRUE THAT

GOD ADOPTS US INTO HIS

FAMILY, AND HE BECOMES OUR

ABBA FATHER.

AND I FELT THE LOVE OF GOD.

AND I NEVER FELT -- KNOWING

I WAS WALKING WITH CHRIST, I

NEVER FELT WITHOUT.

Pat: LOVE, L-O-V-E.

THE BIBLE SAYS GOD IS LOVE.

IT DOESN'T SAY HE IS

LOVING.

HE IS LOVE.

HE IS LOVE ITSELF.

AND THE THING ABOUT SOMEBODY

WITH THE QURAN, THEY DON'T

FIND LOVE.

THE ALLAH IN THE OLD QURAN

IS NOT A GOD OF LOVE.

HE IS A GOD OF JUSTICE AND

RETRIBUTION AND WRATH.

BUT NOT LOVE.

NOT FORGIVENESS.

NOT MERCY.

THAT'S NOT THERE.

BUT GOD COMMENDS HIS LOVE

TOWARDS US.

THAT'S WHILE WE WERE YET

SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR

US.

JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU.

AND WHAT HE SAYS IS IF YOU

WANT TO KNOW PEACE, YOU WANT

TO KNOW JOY, COME UNTO ME,

ALL OF YOU WHO ARE HEAVY

LABORED, AND I'LL GIVE YOU

REST.

YOU'LL FIND PEACE IN YOUR

SOULS.

DO YOU WANT PEACE?

ARE YOU TIRED OF BEING TORN

UP AND TROUBLED?

LET THE LORD TAKE OVER.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- JUST ASK HIM RIGHT

NOW.

JESUS, TAKE OVER MY LIFE.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON I'M

YOURS.

I TURN AWAY FROM SELFISHNESS

AND SIN, AND I TURN TO YOU.

AND I ACCEPT YOUR DEATH ON

THE CROSS.

THANK YOU, JESUS, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE

RECEIVED ME AS YOUR OWN.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

JUST A LITTLE PACKET HERE

CALLED "A NEW DAY."

I CAN'T TELL YOU IN A FEW

MOMENTS A ALLOTTED ON THIS

PROGRAM, ALL OF THE THINGS

YOU NEED TO KNOW.

BUT IT IS IN THIS C.D.

IT IS ABOUT 73 MINUTES OF

COMPACT DISC.

YOU PUT IT IN YOUR C.D.

PLAYER, AND IT WILL TELL YOU

ABOUT BEING BORN AGAIN, IT

WILL TELL YOU ABOUT AN

EXCHANGED LIFE.

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT

HAPPENS TO YOU WHEN YOU

ACCEPT THE LORD.

IT WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THE

SPIRIT OF THE BAPTISM, AND

ON AND ON AND ON.

CALL, AND SAY I PRAYED AND

GAVE MY HAR HEART TO THE

LORD, AND WE'LL SEND YOU

THIS C.D. FREE.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

COULD GLUTEN BE THE ANSWER

FOR YOU.

DR. ARTHUR AGATSTON HAS THE

ANSWER, AND THAT IS JUST

AHEAD.

Lee: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS ISSUED

HIS ANNUAL PROCLAMATION FOR

LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL,

GENDER PRIDE MONTH.

HE SAYS THIS MONTH IS ABOUT,

QUOTE,"MAKING OUR COUNTRY A

MORE PERFECT UNION.

HE REMINDS AMERICANS HE

OVERTURNED THE MILITARY'S

"DON'T ASK; DON'T TELL"

POLICY.

BILL CLINTON WAS THE FIRST

U.S. PRESIDENT TO DECLARE

GAY PRIDE MONTH BACK IN

2000.

PRESIDENT OBAMA PICKED UP

THE PRACTICE AGAIN IN 2009.

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT HAS

REFUSED TO HEAR A FREE

SPEECH CASE DEALING WITH

GRAPHIC ABORTION IMAGES.

A COLORADO RULING BLOCKED

ABORTION PROTESTORS FROM

DISPLAYING IMAGES OF ABORTED

FETUSES NEAR A CHURCH WHERE

THEY MIGHT UPSET CHILDREN.

THAT RULING NOW STANDS.

THE CASE STEMS FROM A 2005

PROTEST NEAR AN OUTDOOR

SERVICE AT AN EPISCOPAL

CHURCH, THAT IS ACCUSED OF

SUPPORTING ABORTION.

A JUDGE LATER BARRED

PROTESTORS FROM DISPLAYING

THE GRUESOME IMAGES, AND AN

APPEALS COURT LATER UPHELD

THAT CHURCH, AND SAID IT

COULD NOT BE APPLIED

GENERALLY.

BUT SOME EXPERTS SAY IT EATS

AWAY AT FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, FIVE YEARS

AGO, IF YOU HAD SAID YOU HAD

SWORN OFF GLUTEN, MOST

PEOPLE WOULD HAVE ASKED,

WHAT IS GLUTEN?

BUT NOT ANYMORE.

NOW SUPERMARKETS HAVE

GLUTEN-FREE AISLES AND

RESTAURANTS OFFER

GLUTEN-FREE DISHES.

Reporter: DR. ARTHUR

AGATSTON IS THE CREATOR OF

THE SOUTH BEACH DIET.

HE SAYS 50% OF AMERICANS

HAVE A GLUTEN SENSITIVITY,

BUT NOT EVERYONE NEEDS TO

GIVE IT UP PERMANENTLY.

IN HIS LATEST RESEARCH, THE

DOCTOR ANSWERS QUESTIONS

ABOUT GLUTEN IN THE SOUTH

BEACH DIET, GLUTEN

SOLUTION.

AND SHARES WHAT CHANGES, IF

ANY, YOU NEED TO MAKE TO

FEEL GREAT FAST.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

DR. ARTHUR AGATSTON.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU BACK

WITH US.

GREAT TO BE BACK WITH

YOU, TERRY.

Terry: WE LOVE HEARING

ABOUT THE SOUTH BEACH DIET,

AND NOW YOU'VE WRITTEN THE

SOUTH BEACH DIET GLUTEN

SOLUTION.

LET'S START BY TALKING WHAT

IS GLUTEN?

GLUTEN IS A PROTEIN FIND

IN WHEAT, BARLEY AND RYE.

IT IS DIFFERENT THAN THE

PROTEIN FOUND IN RICE AND

MEAT, AND IT IS DIFFICULT TO

DIGEST.

BECAUSE OF THE WAY WE COOK

FOOD, BECAUSE OF THE FOODS

WE EAT, THE PAIN RELIEVERS,

ANTIBIOTICS, WE'RE NOT

DIGESTING IT AS WELL AS OUR

GRANDPARENTS AND GREAT

GRANDPARENTS.

AND THAT'S THE

REASON

WHY SO

MANY

PEOPLE

ARE HAVING

GLUTEN PROBLEMS.

Terry: WHEN YOU MENTION

THOSE THINGS, IT IS A WONDER

EVERYBODY DOESN'T HAVE A

PROBLEM.

WHY IS IT

SOME PEOPLE REACT

SIGNIFICANTLY, AND OTHERS

DON'T SEEM BOTHERED BY IT AT

ALL.

IT IS OUR ABILITY TO

DIGEST, SO IT IS SOMEWHAT

GENETIC.

AND IT IS THE AMOUNT OF

PROCESSED FOOD WE'RE

GETTING, WHICH DETERMINES

THE AMOUNT OF GLUTEN WE'RE

GETTING, AND TAKING THESE

OTHER MEDICATIONS.

SOMETIMES A LOT OF PEOPLE,

AFTER TAKING A COURSE OF

ANTIBIOTICS, THE ANTIBIOTICS

IN OUR GUTS -- I'M SORRY,

THE BACTERIA IN OUR GUTS

HELP US DIGEST GLUTEN.

WHEN WE KILL BACTERIA WITH

ANTIBIOTICS, WE KILL OFF

GOOD BACTERIA, AS WELL AS

BAD BACTERIA.

Terry: YOU COULD HAVE

DONE WELL FOR A LONG TIME,

AND TAKE A COURSE OF

ANTIBIOTICS AND TRIGGER

THIS?

YES.

AND CERTAIN PAIN RELIEVERS

CAN HURT US.

AND WHEN WE PREPARE FOODS,

WE USED TO FERMENT FOODS.

NOW THEY DON'T TO DO IT

BECAUSE THERE IS QUICK-RISE

DOUGH.

AND SO WE'RE ON GLUTEN

OVERLOAD.

WE'RE BEING OVERWHELMED WITH

GLUTEN.

WE'RE NOT DIGESTING IT.

AND WHEN IT IS NOT DIGESTING

IT, IT PLAYS HAVOC WITH OUR

BODIES.

Terry: HOW DO I KNOW IF

I HAVE A GLUTEN PROBLEM?

ABOUT ONE 1% OF THE

POPULATION, ABOUT THREE

MILLION PEOPLE, HAVE CELIAC

DISEASE, AND THERE IS A

BLOOD TEST FOR THAT.

THAT IS OFTEN WITH ABDOMINAL

PAIN AND OTHER ABDOMINAL

PROBLEMS.

BUT IT CAN PRESENT IN OTHER

WAYS, FROM HEADACHES TO

ARTHRITIS.

PROBABLY ABOUT 50%, I

BELIEVE, OR MORE, OF THE

VIEWERS WATCHING RIGHT NOW

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH GLUTEN

SENSITIVITYVITY.

Terry: REALLY?

YES.

FOR WHICH THERE IS NO TEST.

THEY MAY GET UP IN THE

MORNING FEELING LIKE THEY'VE

BEEN HIT BY A BUS, WITH

HEADACHES AND THEY'RE

SLUGGISH AND CAN'T FOCUS.

BUT OTHERS, LIKE THE FAMOUS

TENNIS PLAYERS, JOCKAVICH,

THEY WEREN'T WINNING LONG

MATCHES, AND THEY GOT OFF

GLUTEN AND HAD BETTER

FOCUS.

AND THE ONLY WAY TO TELL IS

TO STOP EATING GLUTEN FOR A

WHILE.

IT IS VERY EASY FOR A MONTH

OR SO.

IT IS HARD TO BE STRICT FOR

A LIFETIME, BUT YOU DON'T

NECESSARILY HAVE TO BE.

Terry: IT IS.

I'M SCANDINAVIAN, AND WE

LOVE OUR BREAD.

BUT IT IS A GOOD WAY TO

CHECK IT OUT.

IF YOU'RE FEELING SOME OF

THE SYMPTOMS, GET AHOLD OF

THIS BOOK.

YOU TALK ABOUT BEING GLUTEN

AWARE AND BEING GLUTEN

PHOBIC.

WE MENTIONED THE 1%, WHO

HAVE TO BE GLUTEN PHOBIC.

JUST A CRUMB OF BREAD IS

GOING TO MAKE THEM SICK.

BUT THE REST OF US, SAY YOU

JUST HAVE HEADACHES, YOU'RE

TIRED, YOU JUST HAVE TO BE

GLUTEN AWARE.

YOU HAVE TO AVOID THE MAJOR

SOURCES OF GLUTEN.

THE BREADS, PASTA.

WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT SOME

OF THAT NOW.

IF YOU HAVE SEA CELIAC

DISEASE, YOU HAVE TO BE

ABSOLUTELY STRICT.

BUT FOR MOST OF THE REST OF

US, WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT

TOLERANCE.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE BOOK

TELLS YOU, HOW TO FIND YOUR

OWN TOLERANCE FOR GLUTEN.

Terry: I

JUST WANT

TO

SAY, FOLKS, DON'T PANIC

BECAUSE WE DO HAVE SOME

OPTIONS FOR YOU IF YOU FIND

THIS MIGHT BE AN ISSUE THAT

YOU DEAL WITH.

LET'S START DOWN HERE WITH

LOOKING AT WHAT IS GLUTEN

FILLED.

THIS IS THE PASTA, BREAD,

IT'S BAKED GOODS.

THESE ARE THE BIG SOURCES OF

GLUTEN.

AND WE ALWAYS SAID NONE OF

THIS ON THE FIRST DAYS OF

OUR SOUTH BEACH DIET.

AND WE EXPECTED PEOPLE TO

LOSE WEIGHT.

WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT THEM

WAS TO HAVE ARTHRITIS AND

HEADACHES AND THEIR SKIN

CLEAR UP.

THE ARTHRITIS AND HEADACHES

GO AWAY, AND THAT WAS A

SURPRISE.

I EVENTUALLY REALIZED IT WAS

GLUTEN-RELATED.

MUSTARD AND SOY SAUCE, THESE

ARE HIDDEN SOURCES.

GLUTEN IS EVEN IN LIPSTICK

AND TOOTHPASTE, BELIEVE IT

OR NOT.

YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THIS

IF YOU'RE GLUTEN AWARE, BUT

NOT SO MUCH THE HIDDEN

SOURCE.

IF YOU HAVE CELIAC DISEASE,

YOU HAVE TO BE A GLUTEN

DETECTIVE AND WORRY ABOUT

THESE AS WELL.

Terry: THOSE ARE

GLUTEN-FILLED, AND THESE ARE

GLUTEN-FREE, RIGHT?

YES.

THIS IS SHOWING YOU DO NOT

HAVE TO BE OVERLY

RESTRICTED.

WE HAVE THE CHICKPEA FLOUR,

AND HUP MUS HUMMUS, WHICH

IS REALLY HEALTHY, AND BROWN

RICE --

Terry: WE KNOW THAT'S

BETTER FOR YOU, ANYWAY,

RIGHT?

AND WE A QUINOA, WHICH IS

THE EV LEN EQUIVALENT OF A

WHOLE GRAIN.

Terry: IT IS AN

EXCELLENT GRAIN.

IT IS AN EXCELLENT GRAIN

AND REALLY, REALLY HEALTHY.

Terry: YOGURT, GREAT

CHOICES, RIGHT?

YES.

AND THE FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES WE HAVE ALWAYS

RECOMMENDED ON SOUTH BEACH.

THIS HAS A VARIETY OF

NUTRIENTS THAT KEEP US

HEALTHY, AND THEY'RE

ABSOLUTELY COMPLETELY

GLUTEN-FREE.

Terry: AND THIS TIME OF

THE YEAR, YOU CAN GET THOSE

AND THEY ARE FABULOUS.

AND VARIETY IS

IMPORTANT.

DON'T JUST DEPEND ON ONE.

IT IS THE VARIETY THAT WILL

MAKE YOU HEALTHY.

Terry: AND NOW THE PART

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WAITING

FOR, IF I CAN'T HAVE ALL OF

THOSE WONDERFUL THINGS I

LIKE ON THE RIGHT SIDE,

LET'S GO TO THE LEFT SIDE

AND SHOW THEM THEY HAVE SOME

OPTIONS.

YES.

AND HERE WE HAVE SOME

BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES WITH SOME

APPLES.

AND BUCKWHEAT IS NOT MADE OF

WHEAT, SURPRISINGLY.

IT IS WHOLE GRAIN, AND IT

MAKES GREAT PANCAKES AND

OTHER BAKED GOODS, BUT IT

HAS NO WHEAT, EVEN THOUGH

WHEAT IS IN THE NAME.

Terry: SPAGHETTI?

THIS IS SQUASH SPAGHETTI,

WHICH I LOVE, AND

MEATBALLS.

IT COULD BE TURKEY

MEATBALLS.

AND THERE IS ALSO QUINOA

PASTA.

AND SO YOU REALLY DON'T HAVE

TO BE -- YOU DON'T HAVE TO

SUFFER.

Terry: SOME OF THIS, IT

STRIKES ME, IS JUST LETTING

GO OF THE OLD AND EMBRACING

THE NEW PSYCHOLOGICAL.

YES.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND THE THING IS YOU OFTEN

FEEL BETTER WITHIN JUST A

FEW DAYS.

BUT CERTAINLY IN WEEKS.

AND THE TYPES OF CASES WE

SAW, AND, AGAIN, IT WAS THE

FIRST PHASE OF THE SOUTH

BEACH DIET.

WE EXPECTED PEOPLE TO LOSE

WEIGHT, BUT NOT HAVE THIS

BOOST OF ENERGY, AND THEY

DIDN'T WANT TO GO TO THE

SECOND PHASE, OFTEN WHERE

THEY ADDED WHOLE GRAINS.

AND THEY EAT GREAT AND THEY

FEEL GREAT, AND THEY STAY

HEALTHY.

THEY STAY AVOIDING THE

PROCESSED CARBOHYDRATES FOR

YEARS BECAUSE THEY FEEL SO

GOOD.

Terry: IT IS WORTH THE

SACRIFICE FOR THEM.

SOME DON'T CARE ABOUT A

HEART ATTACK IN 10 YEARS,

BUT THEY CARE ABOUT FEELING

BETTER TODAY AND TOMORROW.

I'M AN ADMITTED

CHOCOLATEOHOLIC.

AND IT HAS SOME CHEMICALS

CALLED POLY PHEMALS, AND

THEY'RE CHEMICALS.

THE COCOA BEAN IS ABSOLUTELY

GLUTEN-FREE.

THIS WAS MADE WITH A BROWN

RICE FLOUR.

AND SO IT'S -- AGAIN, IT IS

A WHOLE GRAIN GRAIN, AND IN

THIS CASE THE PROTEINS IN

RICE ARE EASY TO DIGEST,

UNLIKE GLUTEN.

AND SO YOU CAN HAVE YOUR

CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES.

Terry: THESE LOOK

DELICIOUS.

I THINK IT IS SO ENCOURAGING

TO PEOPLE.

I KNOW SOME FRIENDS WHO

SUFFER WITH GLUTEN, AND

YOU'RE WILLING TO MAKE SOME

SACRIFICES TO FEEL WONDERFUL

AGAIN.

IT IS ALL HERE IN THE SOUTH

BEACH DIET, GLUTEN

SOLUTION.

YOU'LL WANT TO GET

DR. ARTHUR AGATSTON'S BOOK.

THERE IS NOT JUST HOPE, BUT

GOOD, TASTY ALTERNATIVES

THAT YOU CAN STILL ENJOY

FOOD AND HAVE ALL OF THE

GOOD HEALTHY FEELINGS WE ALL

LIKE TO HAVE.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU BACK

AGAIN.

WONDERFUL WORK.

THANK YOU.

THE BOOK IS AWESOME, FILLED

WITH INCREDIBLE

INFORMATION.

YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT.

BE SURE TO GET YOUR COPY.

THANK YOU.

Pat: WOW, GLUTEN

SOLUTION FROM THE MAN WHO

HAS ALREADY GIVEN US SOME

WONDERFUL SOLUTIONS.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

QUESTIONS AND E-MAILS.

JULIE SAYS, "CAN I PRAY FOR

SPECIFIC QUALITIES IN MY

FUTURE HUSBAND?

IF SO, HOW CAN I BE SURE GOD

WILL ALLOW THEM TO HAPPEN?"

OH, BOY, WHAT A QUESTION

THAT IS.

WE'LL TAKE UP JULIE'S

QUESTION AND MORE OF YOUR

E-MAILS COMING UP ON "BRING

IT ON."

Terry: WE'VE GOT SOME

EXCITING NEWS FOR YOU.

YOU CAN WATCH CBN'S

AWARD-WINNING SERIES

"SUPERBOOK" ON TELEVISION

DURING PRIME TIME FOR THREE

SATURDAY NIGHTS IN JUNE.

BEGINNING THIS SATURDAY,

JUNE 15th, "SUPERBOOK"

WILL AIR IN MAJOR MARKETS

ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.

CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS OR

YOU CAN LOG ON TO cbn.com

FOR TIMES AND STATIONS.

WE JUST ENCOURAGE YOU ON

THESE SATURDAY NIGHTS TO GET

YOUR FAMILY IN FRONT OF THE

TV AND ENJOY THIS AMAZING

SERIES.

IT IS INCREDIBLE.

Pat: IT IS THE CBS

NETWORK STATION.

Terry: OKAY, TIME FOR

SOME E-MAIL.

Pat: GO FOR IT.

Terry: THIS FIRST ONE,

PAT, IS FROM JULIE, WHO

SAYS, "CAN I PRAY FOR

SPECIFIC QUALITIES IN MY

FUTURE HUSBAND.

IF SO, HOW CAN I BE SURE GOD

WILL ALLOW THEM TO HAPPEN?"

Pat: I HEARD ONE WOMAN,

AND SHE SAID, I PRAYED, AND

I GOT A HUSBAND WHO WAS

HANDSOME, SHE WAS ATHLETIC,

HE WAS CARING, HE WAS

LOVING, HE WAS A GOOD

PROVIDER, BUT I FORGOT TO

ASK FOR ONE THAT DIDN'T

CHEAT ON ME.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: YOU HAVE TO

COVER THE WHOLE THING.

Pat: SHE GOT ALMOST THE

WHOLE PACKAGE.

I THINK GOD WILL GIVE US THE

DESIRE OF OUR HEARTS, I

REALLY DO.

I THINK IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU

WANT -- A LOT OF PEOPLE

DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY WANT.

IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT,

GOD WILL TRY TO FULFILL YOUR

DESIRE.

BUT ALL THAT QUESTION IS

KIND OF CONFUSING.

I CAN'T ANSWER THAT

QUESTION.

Terry: YOU MIGHT WANT

TO WORK ON BEING SURE YOU'RE

EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD BE FOR

THE PERSON.

Pat: TERRY, THANK YOU.

IF I SAID THAT, I WOULD BE

VIEWED AS ANTI-FEMINIST.

IT WOULD BE SAID, PAT

ROBERTSON JUST ATTACKED

WOMEN AGAIN.

BUT IT IS FOR BOTH SPOUSES,

YOU NEED TO MAKE ME THE

HUSBAND I NEED TO BE, AND

GIVE ME THE WIFE THAT YOU

WOULD HAVE FOR ME.

Terry: BOTH PEOPLE.

Pat: BUT GOD WILL

SELECT A SPOUSE.

HE WILL.

HE'LL PUT THE SINGLE PEOPLE

IN FAMILIES.

HE'S GOT SOMETHING FOR YOU,

AND SOMEBODY FOR YOU, AND

THE RIGHT ONE FOR YOU.

BUT YOU NEED -- IN WHATEVER

YOU ASK HIM FOR, YOU NEED TO

KNOW WHAT YOU WANT?

WHAT DO YOU WANT IN LIFE?

YOU NEED TO ASK YOURSELF,

BEFORE YOU START PRAYING,

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

WILL YOU KNOW IF YOU GET?

Terry: THERE IS A GOOD

QUESTION, WILL YOU KNOW IF

YOU GET IT.

THIS IS MARA, WHO SAYS, "I'M

25 YEARS OLD, AND I'VE BEEN

A CHRISTIAN ALL OF MY LIFE.

LATELY IN MY CHURCH, AFTER

WORSHIP SERVICE, TWO PEOPLE

SPEAK IN TONGUES AND

PROPHESY TO PEOPLE IN THE

CONGREGATION ABOUT ACCIDENTS

IN THEIR FUTURE OR SOME

GREAT SORROW IN THEIR

LIVES.

THEY WARN THEM TO TURN BACK

TO GOD OR FACE GREAT

JUDGMENT.

THEY TAKE TURNS TALKING TO

PEOPLE.

I'M SCARED THAT I'LL BE

NEXT.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING IS TRUE?"

Pat: I HATE TO TELL

YOU, I THINK IT COMES FROM

THE PIT OF HELL.

THOSE PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO

BE DOMINANT.

I'VE SEEN THIS BEFORE.

WHERE PEOPLE DECIDE THEY

WANT TO DOMINATE OTHER

PEOPLE.

SO THEY DO IT, LIKE, I'VE

GOT A WORD FROM GOD FOR

YOU.

YOU KNOW.

JOHN WESLEY -- YOU NEED TO

READ JOHN WESLEY.

I READ JOHN WESLEY'S

LETTERS, AND I HAD A WHOLE

SET OF HIS LETTERS AND

CORRESPONDENCE -- WONDERFUL

STUFF.

SOME WOMAN CAME TO HIM AND

SAID, REVEREND WESLEY, I

HAVE A WORD FROM GOD.

HE SAYS, WHAT IS IT?

AND SHE SAYS, GOD SHOWED ME

THAT YOU'RE BEDDING DOWN

WITH A WHORE.

AND WESLEY LOOKED AT HER AND

SAID, MADAM, THE LORD DID

NOT SEND YOU.

BUT THESE PEOPLE WERE TRYING

TO DOMINATE THIS GREAT MAN

OF GOD.

I HAVE A REVELATION.

THE REVELATION WAS NO SUCH

THING.

SHE WAS JUST OUT OF HER

MIND.

Terry: MOST OF THE

TIME, DON'T YOU FIND WHEN

GOD SENDS A WORD TO SOMEONE,

IT IS USUALLY A WORD OF

ENCOURAGEMENT, A WORD OF

HOPE AND MOVING FORWARD IN

THEIR LIVES.

Pat: INSPIRATION,

EDIFICATION AND COMFORT.

PREDICTED PROPHECY OF

DISASTER IS ALMOST ALWAYS

SOME FROM THE PSYCHIC WORLD,

NOT FROM GOD.

Terry: I DON'T BLAME

HER OF BEING SCARED.

Pat: IF I WERE YOU, I

WOULD BE THE NEXT ONE TO GET

OUT OF THAT CHURCH.

I'M GETTING QUESTIONS ABOUT

SOME OF THE NUTTIEST THINGS

GOING ON IN THESE

CONGREGATIONS.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: JOEY SAYS,

"WHENEVER CHRISTIANS WARN

PEOPLE OF THE DANGER OF

SINFUL ACTIVITIES OR

LIFESTYLES, WHY DO SO MANY

PEOPLE SAY WE'RE BEING

JUDGEMENTAL.

DOESN'T THE BIBLE SAY WE ARE

TO JUDGE RIGHTS

RIGHTEOUSLY?"

Pat: YES, WE ARE.

WE'RE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH IN

LOVE.

SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE.

BUT THERE ARE WARNINGS IN

THE BIBLE, WARNINGS OF

JUDGMENT.

THE GREAT PROPHETS --

Terry: THE CONSEQUENCES

OF SIN.

Pat: THE CONSEQUENCES

OF SIN, AND IT SPOKE OF

JUDGMENT.

BUT THE WORLD DOESN'T WANT

TO HEAR THAT.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR

THEY'RE SINFUL.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR

THEY'RE GOING TO HELL.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR

ABOUT JUDGMENT.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT.

YOU SPEAK ABOUT THESE

THINGS, AND THEN YOU'RE

BEING JUDGEMENTAL.

THIS ISN'T THE GOD OF LOVE

WE KNOW.

WE WANT A GOD OF LOVE.

BUT WHAT PEOPLE WANT IS A

GOD WHO LET'S THEM GET AWAY

WITH ANYTHING THEY'RE DOING

AND STILL SAYS THEY'RE GOING

TO HEAVEN.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

Terry: THIS IS

JONATHAN, PAT, WHO SAYS,

"THE BIBLE SAYS OUR SINS ARE

OWREMOVED AS FAR AS THE

EAST IS TO THE WEST.

BUT THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS WE

WILL STAND ACCOUNT FOR OUR

BAD DEEDS.

WHAT GOOD IS IT TO ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS IF I'M GOING TO

HAVE TO PAY MORE

CONSEQUENCES WHEN I DIE?"

Pat: I THINK YOU'RE

DISTORTING SCRIPTURE, AND I

THINK YOU'RE TWISTING SOME

OF THOSE WORDS.

AND I HAVEN'T GOT THE TIME

TO GO INTO ALL OF THE

DETAILS.

BUT FOR THOSE WHO HAVE

ACCEPTED THE LORD AND ASKED

JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR AND

THEY'RE BORN AGAIN, THEY'VE

PASSED FROM DEATH INTO LIFE,

AND THEIR SINS WILL NOT BE

REMEMBERED.

THEY'LL BE TAKEN AWAY.

BUT WE WILL STAND BEFORE THE

JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST TO

RECEIVE FOR WHAT WE'VE DONE

IN OR BODY.

THERE WILL AR BE REWARDS.

AND I THINK WE WANT

REWARDS.

AND THERE WILL BE SOME

PUNISHMENT FOR THOSE WHO

HAVE NOT DONE WHAT HE

WANTS.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, IT IS A

DIFFERENT THING FROM

THINKING THE SINS ARE GOING

TO BE CARRYING YOU TO HELL.

ONCE YOU HAVE COME TO THE

LORD, THE SINS ARE BLOTED

OUT, THEY'RE GONE.

YES, THEY'RE BURIED IN THE

SEA OF HIS FORGETFULNESS.

Terry: MARTH SAYS, JOHN

20: 22 SAYS, "JESUS BREATHED

ON THE DISCIPLES TO RECEIVE

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

HOW IS THAT DIFFERENT FROM

THE RECEIVING OF THE

PENTECOST IN ACTS 2, 3, AND

4?"

Pat: WE ARE BORN AGAIN

BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, AND

THE SPIRIT OF GOD COMES INTO

US AND TRANSFORMS US AND

MAKES US LIKE HIM.

AND WITH THAT WE ARE TO

DEMONSTRATE THE FRUIT OF THE

SPIRIT, LOVE AND JOY AND

PEACE AND LONG SUFFERING AND

THESE THINGS.

BUT THERE IS A BAPTISM OF

THE SPIRIT, WHERE WE ARE

EMERSED IN THE POWER OF THE

SPIRIT, AND WHERE WE ARE

REPRODUCING THE MIRACLES

THAT JESUS DID.

AND THEY'RE TWO SEPARATE

THINGS.

SO WHAT HAPPENED ON THE DAY

OF PENTECOST WAS THE BAPTISM

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

WHEN JESUS BREATHED ON THIS

DISCIPLES, AND SOME WOULD

SAY WHAT THAT GREAT TERM

WAS, THE IN BREATH, I

RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THEY RECEIVED, BUT THEY

HADN'T BEEN FILLED WITH THE

SPIRIT.

THEY HADN'T BEEN IMMERSED OR

BAPTIZED IN THE SPIRIT.

THEY'RE TWO SEPARATE THINGS,

AS FAR AS I CAN TELL, IN THE

BIBLE.

Terry: WE THANK YOU ALL

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

IT WAS GREAT TO HEAR FROM

YOU AGAIN TODAY.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

WELL, LET'S TURN TO ONE

TESTIMONY.

CHERYL PALUMBO.

SHE WAS $20,000 IN DEBT.

SHE WAS A SINGLE MOM JUST

TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

WHEN A FRIEND TOLD HER OF A

SURE-FIRE PLAN TO TURN HER

FINANCES AROUND.

CHERYL SAYS I'LL TAKE MY

FRIEND'S ADVICE, AND TODAY

THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR

THEMSELVES.

WATCH THIS.

Reporter: CHERYL

PALUMBO OF

HOLLY HILL,

FLORIDA, LOVES DOGS.

IN FACT, SHE LOVES DOGS SO

MUCH, SHE STARTED A BUSINESS

TO CARE FOR THEM.

KIND OF A LITTLE CAMP FOR

DOGS WHILE THEIR OWNERS ARE

AWAY.

Reporter: CHERYL'S

BUSINESS IS THRIVING.

BUT YEARS AGO, SHE WAS

TRAPPED IN A HOSPITAL

TECHNICIAN'S JOB THAT BARELY

PAID THE BILLS.

SHE ALSO HAD $20,000 IN

CREDIT CARD DEBT.

IT WAS A CONSTANT

STRUGGLE, ESPECIALLY BEING A

SINGLE MOM AND TRYING TO

PROVIDE FOR MY SON AS WELL.

Reporter: DURING THIS

TIME, CHERYL BECAME A

CHRISTIAN.

A FRIEND INTRODUCED HER TO

THE CONCEPT OF TITHING.

IT WAS, I CAN'T DO THAT.

I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH NOW TO

MAKE IT FROM MONTH TO MONTH,

HOW AM I GOING TO DO THAT?

Reporter: RELUCTANTLY,

SHE AGREED TO TRY TITHING

FOR A MONTH.

TO HER AMAZEMENT, BY THE END

OF THE MONTH, SHE PAID ALL

HER BILLS IN FULL WITH MONEY

LEFT OVER.

I WAS, LIKE, MAYBE THIS

IS JUST A LITTLE FLUKE.

BY THE NEXT TIME, IT WAS

THIS IS NO FLUKE.

IT IS GOD.

Reporter: SEVERAL

MONTHS LATER, CHERYL BEGAN

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

SHE WAS SO IMPRESSED, SHE

DECIDED TO BECOME A MEMBER.

A LOT OF PAT'S PROGRAMS

WOULD BE ON GETTING YOURSELF

OUT OF DEBT.

Reporter: CHERYL WAS

ABLE TO FIND PART-TIME

PET-SITTING JOBS TO AUGMENT

HER INCOME.

AND SHE CONTINUED TO PAY

DOWN HER DEBT.

SHE EVEN INCREASED HER

GIVING TO "THE 700 CLUB."

I FELT THAT GOD IMPRESSED

ME TO INCREASE IT DURING

THAT TIME.

EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T KNOW

WHERE IT WAS GOING TO COME

FROM.

I DIDN'T HAVE TO KNOW.

Reporter: THEN CHERYL

TOOK ANOTHER STEP OF FAITH.

WHEN SHE WAS LAID OFF FROM

HER HOSPITAL JOB, SHE

LAUNCHED A FULL-TIME

PET-SITTING BUSINESS.

THIS IS REALLY GOING TO

BE A FAITH JOURNEY BECAUSE

NOW THE ONLY THING THAT I

HAVE TO RELY ON IS THE DOGS

THAT YOU BRING MY WAY ON A

DAILY BASIS.

Reporter: CHERYL WAS

AMAZED WHEN HER BUSINESS

TOOK OFF.

I HAVE BEEN SOMETIMES

OVERWHELMED AND HAVE HAD TO

TURN BUSINESS AWAY.

GOD HAS MET EVERY NEED NOW

THAT I HAVE.

I'M CREDIT CARD DEBT-FREE,

AND I'VE BEEN INCREASING MY

GIVING TO CBN, AND I'M NOT

FINISHED YET.

AND THERE IS SUCH A JOY IN

GIVING.

UNTIL YOU START EXPERIENCING

IT, YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN IT.

JUST STEP OUT IN FAITH AND

TRY IT.

HE'S NOT GOING TO LET YOU

DOWN.

Pat: GOD IS NOT GOING

TO LET YOU DOWN.

HE IS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO

WILL BE BOLD IN THEIR FAITH,

AND CHERYL STEPPED OUT IN

FAITH.

WE WANT TO OFFER YOU

SOMETHING.

GORDON HAS DONE AN IN-DEPTH

STUDY OF THE LORD'S PRAYER

CALLED "OUR FATHER."

IT IS A D.V.D.

IT'S AVAILABLE TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

65 CENTS A DAY.

TAKE AN ADVENTURE.

MAKE AN ADVENTURE WITH GOD,

AND WATCH WHAT HE'LL DO.

HE WILL NEVER, EVER BREAK

HIS WORD.

WELL, TOMORROW ON "THE 700

CLUB," WE HAVE THE STORY OF

AN INFERTILE COUPLE WHO GET

A DOUBLE MIRACLE.

AND TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 2 JOHN:

"THIS IS LOVE, THAT WE WALK

ACCORDING TO HIS

COMMANDMENTS."

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US

ON THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

FOR LEE, FOR TERRY, FOR ALL

OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON.

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS YOU.
