The 700 Club - June 19, 2013

A dive into the pool's shallow end left nine year-old Josiah with four broken vertebrae. Plus, Bob shares his amazing experiences of a career in the FBI and how God protected him. Read Transcript


BOY, HAVE YOU TAKEN

HITS.

SLINGS AND ARROWS.

WE SIT DOWN WITH MSNBC

HOST JOE SCARBORO.

I HAD COMMITTED THE

UNPARDONABLE SIN OF NOT

JUDGING PEOPLE FOR WHAT THEY

BELIEVE.

Lee: PLUS, A BROKEN

NECK, AND THE MIRACLE THAT

SAVED ONE CHILD'S LIFE, ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

I DON'T CARE WHAT THOSE

DOCTORS TOLD YOU, YOUR BABY

IS GOING TO BE OKAY.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

HEY, BIG BROTHER -- HE'S

STORING YOUR E-MAILS.

HE'S STORING YOUR PHONE

CALLS.

HE IS STORING JUST ABOUT ALL

OF YOUR ELECTRONIC

COMMUNICATIONS.

AND LITTLE BY LITTLE, DRIP

BY DRIP BY DRIP, WE'RE

LEARNING MORE AND MORE ABOUT

THOSE GOVERNMENT

SURVEILLANCE PROGRAMS THAT

CRITICS CALL BIG BROTHER.

Wendy: AND GOVERNMENT

OFFICIALS SAY IT HAS ALL

BEEN WORTH IT BECAUSE IT

STOPPED MORE THAN 50

TERRORISTS' ATTACKS.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE SUCCESSES

OF THE GOVERNMENT'S SECRET

SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM WERE

TAUTED BEFORE CONGRESS

BEFORE CONGRESS AND THE

N.S.A.

SEAN JOYCE SAID IT HELPED

THE BUREAU PREVENT A

SYMBOLIC TERROR ATTACK IN

THE HEART OF NEW YORK CITY.

IN 2008, AN al-QAEDA

LEADER IN YEMEN PLANNED TO

BOMBED THE STOCK EXCHANGE.

THESE TOOLS HAVE HELPED

US.

THE F.B.I. DISRUPTED AND

ARRESTED THESE INDIVIDUALS.

Reporter: N.S.A.

DIRECTOR GENERAL KEITH

ALEXANDER DEFENDED THE

MASSIVE GOVERNMENT

SURVEILLANCE EFFORT KNOWN AS

PRISM.

THOSE PROGRAMS HAVE

PROTECTED THE U.S. AND OUR

ALLIES FROM TERRORIST

THREATS ACROSS THE GLOBE.

Reporter: BUT THE

PROGRAM MAY BE MUCH BROADER

THAN ORIGINALLY BELIEVED.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOES

HAVE ACCESS TO THE PRIVATE

CONVERSATIONS OF AMERICANS.

PRESIDENT BUSH ORGANIZED THE

N.S.A. TO PLUG INTO U.S.

FIBREOPTIC CABLES.

AND THEY CAN MONITOR, WEB

CAMS, BANK TRANSACTIONS,

EVERY ASPECT OF

COMMUNICATIONS IN AND OUT OF

THE COUNTRY.

GAIL TROTTER FROM THE

INDEPENDENT FORUM APPEARED

ON THE CBS MORNING SHOW.

A LOT OF THE SCANDALS

CROPPING UP OVER THE LAST

COUPLE OF MONTHS -- THERE IS

A DEFICIT OF TRUST.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS

MADE HUGE WITHDRAWALS FROM

THE TRUST ACCOUNT WITH

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Reporter: MEMBERS OF

THE CONGRESS WERE AWARE OF

THE SECRET SURVEILLANCE

PROGRAM YEARS AGO, AND MANY

STILL SUPPORT THE MASSIVE

MONITORING EFFORT.

THE REASON WE IS THAT IS

TO FIND A NEEDLE IN A

HAYSTACK, AND YOU CAN'T FIND

THE NEEDLE UNLESS YOU HAVE

THE HAYSTACK THAT WAS

THERE.

Reporter: AND MORE

DETAILS WERE REVEALED ABOUT

EDWARD SNOWDEN, THE MAN WHO

LEAKED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION.

THEY SAY SNOWDEN WAS BEING

TRAINED AS .

NODE SNOWED ALSO REVEALED

THE U.S. LISTENED IN ON

PHONE CALLS MADE BY RUSSIAN

PRESIDENT PUTIN AND HACKED

INTO CHINESE GOVERNMENT

COMPUTERS.

AND HE SAYS BRITISH

GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE

INCLUDED THE MONITORING OF

DIPLOMATIC SMARTPHONES.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SUGGESTS

SNOWDEN WILL BE BROUGHT TO

JUSTICE.

President Obama:

POSSIBLE EXTRADITION.

Reporter: AND SNOWDEN

IS PROMISING TO RELEASE MORE

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION IN

THE DAYS AHEAD.

GARY LANE, CBS.

Pat: THANKS, GARY.

JUST THINK OF IT, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

IT IS GOING TO BE HERE.

THE NICE THING ABOUT GOD IS

HE SAYS HE'LL FORGET THE

TRATRANSGRESSIONS AND SINS

YOU HAVE COMMITTED.

THIS THING WON'T FORGET

ANYTHING.

10 YEARS, 15 YEARS, 20

YEARS, BANG, YOU'VE DONE

SOMETHING WRONG AND THEY

SAY, LOOK AT THIS.

YOU DID THIS, AND YOU DID

THAT.

THEY WON'T USE IT NOW, BUT

ANY TIME THEY WANT TO ACCESS

THAT DATA BASE, THEN THEY

CAN SAY, OKAY, GO GET THEM.

DANGEROUS STUFF.

I KNOW IT KEEPS US SAFE,

THEY SAY, BUT I RATHER HAVE

A LITTLE RISK AND A LITTLE

LESS GOVERNMENT INTRUSION.

Wendy: IT SEEMS LIKE A

COLOSSAL WASTE OF TIME.

ORDINARY AMERICANS LEAD

PRETTY BORING LIVES.

WHY DON'T THEY JUST

PROFILE --

Pat: YOU MENTIONED

ISRAELIS OFF-CAMERA, BUT THE

ISRAELIS KNOW HOW TO

TARGET.

IF YOU GO TO THE AIRPORT,

THEY HAVE ALREADY TARGETED

WHO THEY THINK ARE POTENTIAL

TERRORISTS.

THEY DON'T JUST RANDOMLY

TAKE EVERYBODY AND GO

THROUGH ALL OF THESE

TERRIBLE THINGS.

Wendy: AND, GUESS

WHAT?

IT IS WORKING FOR THEM.

Pat: IT IS WORKING FOR

THEM.

THEY DON'T HAVE PROBLEMS.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS HAVE MADE

A MAJOR STATEMENT ON

PROTECTING THE UNBORN.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE HOUSE HAS PASSED A

MEASURE THAT BANS ALL

ABORTIONS AFTER 20 WEEKS.

REPUBLICAN LEADERS TOOK UP

THE BILL AFTER THE CASE OF

KERMIT GOSNELL, THE

PHILADELPHIA ABORTIONIST

SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON

AFTER MURDERING THREE BABIES

BORN ALIVE.

REPUBLICANS TALKED ABOUT THE

PAIN UNBORN BABIES FEEL

DURING AN ABORTION.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A MID

TERM OR LATER PREGNANCY WHEN

THERE IS AN ABORTION.

WHAT HAPPENS IS AN ABSOLUTE

TORTURE.

THIS BILL IS NOT JUST ABOUT

ABORTION.

THIS IS ABOUT PAIN, TORTURE,

TO THAT YOUNG LIFE.

AND WE CAN'T SAY THAT THIS

IS LIKE AN AMPUTATION OF A

LIMB.

ONCE AGAIN, REPUBLICANS

HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE WOMEN'S

HEALTH A BATTLEGROUND AS

PART OF THEIR, YES, ONGOING

WAR ON WOMEN.

THE BILL ON THE FLOOR THIS

WEEK IS NOTHING MORE THAN A

DIRECT CHALLENGE TO ROE VS.

WADE.

Lee: A WOMAN IS EXEMPT

IF HER LIFE IS THREATENED,

OR THE PREGNANCY IS AS A

RESULT OF RAPE OR INCEST.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS ALREADY

THREATENED TO VETO IT.

TEA PARTY PROTESTORS ARE

TAKING ON THE I.R.S. TODAY

IN A MAJOR RALLY IN

WASHINGTON.

THE EVENT IS CALLED "AUDIT

THE I.R.S.."

THE IDEA IS TO REMIND

AMERICANS OF THE AGENCY'S

ABUSES OVER THE YEAR, AND

THE STRONG LEADING

CONSERVATIVES IN CONGRESS

AND ELSEWHERE.

CBN NEWS WILL HAVE A FULL

REPORT ON THE PROTEST ON

TOMORROW'S "700 CLUB."

PAT?

Pat: I THINK THE NEXT

STORY WILL SHOW YOU EXACTLY

HOW BAD THE I.R.S. IS.

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE

HURTING FOR MONEY, BUT

THEY'RE GETTING READY TO

GIVE OUT SOME WHOPPING

BONUSES.

LEE?

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE I.R.S. IS ABOUT TO PAY

$70 MILLION IN

BONUSES, IN

FACT,

DESPITE A WHITE HOUSE

DIRECTIVE TO CANCEL

DISCRETIONARY BONUSES

BECAUSE

OF AUTOMATIC

SPENDING CUTS.

REPUBLICAN SENATOR CHUCK

GRASSLEY OF IOWA

SAYS

THE

BONUSES SHOULD

BE

CANCELLED.

HE

SAYS

THE I.R.S. ALWAYS

CLAIMS TO BE SHORT ON MONEY,

BUT

HAS $70 MILLION FOR

UNION BONUSES.

THE I.R.S. SAYS IT IS

NEGOTIATING WITH THE

EMPLOYEES' UNION ON THE

ISSUE.

THE HOUSE JUDICIARY

COMMITTEE

APPROVED A TOUGH

NEW

IMMIGRATION BILL.

IT WOULD MAKE

IT

A FEDERAL

CRIME TO BE IN THE COUNTRY

ILLEGALLY, INSTEAD OF JUST A

CIVIL OFFENSE.

AND IT WOULD GIVE STATE AND

LOCAL AUTHORITIES THE POWER

TO ENFORCE FEDERAL

IMMIGRATION LAWS.

DEMOCRATS SAY THE BILL IS

DANGEROUS AND DISAPPOINTING,

BUT REPUBLICANS SAY IT IS

NEEDED TO ENSURE ENFORCEMENT

OF THE LAW.

AND THE SENATE IS

CONSIDERING A BIPARTISAN

BILL THAT OPENS

THE DOOR TO

CITIZENSHIP FOR MILLIONS.

A

NEW GOVERNMENT REPORT SAID

THAT BILL WOULD BOOST THE

ECONOMY

BY

GIVING LEGAL

STATUS

TO AN 8 MILLION

IMMIGRANTS HERE

ILLEGALLY.

JOHN

J OHN BOEHNER SAYS ANY

BILL PASSING THE HOUSE

SHOULD HAVE MAJORITY OF THE

SUPPORT FROM REPUBLICANS AS

WELL AS DEMOCRATS.

SETTING THE STANDARDS THAT

HIGH COULD

MAKE IT TOUGHER

FOR THE BILL

TO

PASS.

MAYORS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

ARE PUSHING AGAINST

THE

USE

OF FOOD

STAMPS TO BUY SODAS

AND OTHER

SUGARY DRINKS.

THEY SAY IT WOULD BE AN

IMPORTANT STEP FORWARD IN

THE FIGHT AGAINST OBESITY.

IN A LETTER TO CONGRESS, THE

MAYORS SAY WE NEED TO FIND

WAYS TO STRENGTHEN THE

PROGRAM AND PROMOTE GOOD

NUTRITION, WHILE LIMITING

THE USE OF THESE RESOURCES

FOR ITEMS

WITH NO

NUTRITIONAL VALUE.

THE AMERICAN BEVERAGE

ASSOCIATION SAYS SUGARY

DRINKS SHOULD NOT

BE SINGLED

OUT AS

A

CAUSE OF OBESITY.

PAT, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Pat: IT IS NOT A CAUSE,

BUT IT IS CERTAINLY A

CONTRIBUTING FACTOR.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY CAN BUY

BEER ON FOOD STAMPS.

I'VE SEEN PEOPLE LINED UP AT

THE CHECKOUT COUNTER WITH

CASES OF BEER -- I DON'T

KNOW IF THEY ALLOW THAT OR

NOT.

Wendy: THEY'RE NOT

SUPPOSED TO.

Pat: THEY'RE NOT

SUPPOSED TO.

ANYTHING FOR A BUCK.

BUT THE WHOLE IDEA OF THESE

SUGARY DRINKS -- WHY SHOULD

THE FARMERS -- 46 MILLION

PEOPLE ARE ON FOOT STAMPS

NOW.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

IT IS A NICE PROGRAM, BUT IT

HAS JUST GONE OUT OF

CONTROL.

AND THE STUFF THEY PUT ON

THEM.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE HOSTESS

TWINKIES, AND YOU'RE GOING

TO HAVE ALL OF THESE

FATTENING FOODS AND THINGS

ON FOOT STAMPS.

YOU SHOULDN'T DO IT.

Wendy: IT IS SO EASY TO

GET ADDICTED TO SUGAR, AND

YOU THINK YOU CAN'T LIVE

WITHOUT IT.

I KNOW I'VE BEEN THERE.

Pat: YOU DON'T HAVE ANY

PROBLEM WITH THAT AT ALL, I

CAN TELL.

Wendy: NOT ANYMORE, BUT

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE

YOUNGER AND YOU HAVEN'T BEEN

EDUCATED, AND YOU JUST GO

FOR THAT STUFF.

Pat: WELL, YOU KICKED

THE HABIT.

BUT IT IS HABIT-FORMING.

IT IS THE SAME PHYSIOLOGICAL

REACTION YOU HAVE TO

ALCOHOL.

IT IS THE SAME KIND.

A SUGAR HIGH, AND YOU NEED

TO KEEP IT GOING.

ANYHOW, LEE?

Lee:

PAT, THE AMERICAN

MEDICAL ASSOCIATION

NOW

RECOGNIZES OBESITY AS A

DISEASE.

THE GROUP SAYS THE MOVE WILL

HELP CHANGE THE WAY THE

MEDICAL COMMUNITY TACKLES

THIS COMPLEX ISSUE THAT

AFFECTS APPROXIMATELY ONE IN

THREE AMERICANS.

THE NUMBER OF OBESE ADULTS

MORE THAN DOUBLED FROM 1980

TO 2010, AND ANALYSTS

BELIEVE IF THE TREND

CONTINUES, THE PERS

PERCENTAGE

OF OBESE

AMERICANS COULD RISE TO 22%

BY THE YEAR 2030.

OBESITY AS A DISEASE -- ARE

YOU OKAY WITH THAT, PAT?

Pat: NO, I'M NOT OKAY

WITH THAT.

IT WILL GIVE THEM PRIVILEGES

UNDER THE AMERICANS WITH

DISABILITIES ACT, AND THEN

YOU CAN'T FIRE SOMEBODY

BECAUSE THEY ARE FAT.

I WAS DOWN IN THE GRAND OLD

OPRY, AND THEY HAVE A REAL

NICE FOOD COURT.

THERE IS A RAMP OVER THE

FOOD COURT, SO YOU SIT DOWN

AND WATCH THESE PEOPLE WALK

OVER.

IT IS AN EYE-OPENING,

APPALLING THING TO SEE

MIDDLE AMERICA WALKING

ACROSS THAT BRIDGE.

I MEAN, IT IS APPALLING.

Wendy: IT IS THE LAND

OF FRIED CHICKEN AND

BARBECUE --

Pat: YES.

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS

IN ALMOST EVERYTHING.

THEY TRY TO MAKE IT LIKE IT

IS A SIMPLE SUGAR.

IT IS NOT.

IT HAS CHEMICAL INGREDIENTS

THAT ARE DIFFERENT THAN JUST

SIMPLE SUGAR, FOR STARTERS.

BUT IT IS IN EVERYTHING,

WENDY, JUST EVERYTHING.

SO NOT ONLY DO WE SUGAR

UP -- READ THE CEREAL LABELS

OF ANY CEREAL THAT YOU GET,

EXCEPT TWO OR THREE.

Wendy: IT IS THE FIRST

OR SECOND INGREDIENT.

Pat: HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN

SYRUP AND THEN SUGAR AND

THEN SOME OTHER SUGAR.

THEY ARE ALWAYS SWEET TO

MAKE THE KIDS WANT TO EAT

MORE OF THEM.

AND THEN THE SUGARY DRINKS,

130 OR 140 CALORIES A

BOTTLE.

Wendy: I CAN'T DRINK

THEM ANYMORE.

I USED TO HAVE A COKE A

DAY -- I STOPPED THAT YEARS

AGO.

NOW IF I HAVE EVEN ONE SIP,

IT KIND OF MAKES ME FEEL

SICK.

Pat: YOU ARE SO

HEALTHY.

I'M SO PROUD OF YOU.

Wendy: LET'S BE HONEST,

I LOVE MY CHOCOLATE.

Pat: CHOCOLATE IS GOOD

FOR YOU.

CHOCOLATE IS A HEALTH FOOD.

IT OPENS YOUR HEART UP --

Wendy: HALLELUJAH.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

Pat: LET'S HEAR IT FOR

CHOCOLATE.

DARK CHOCOLATE.

Wendy: YES, SIR.

Pat: GOOD STUFF.

EVERY DAY.

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY.

COMING UP, GET YOUR DAILY

DOSE OF MORNING JO.

SOMETIMES IT WAS THE

HARDEST DECISION I EVER

MADE, BUT IT WAS THE EASIEST

DECISION I EVER MADE.

Wendy: WE'LL GO BEHIND

THE SCENES WITH MSNBC HOST

JOE SCARBOROUGH, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

*

Pat: WELL, MSNBC HAS

BECOME THE HOME OF LEFT-WING

RADICALS, AND YOU SEE THE

EVENING PROGRAMS, THEY'RE

FILLED WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE

ALWAYS INVADING AGAINST FOX,

AND HITTING ON BILL O'REILLY

AND SO FORTH.

BUT IN THE MORNING, THERE IS

A DIFFERENT GENTLEMAN WHO

HAS GOT THE MIC.

THIS NAME IS JOE

SCARBOROUGH, AND HE IS A

FORMER CONGRESSMAN FROM

FLORIDA.

AND HE WANTS EVERYBODY TO

KNOW THAT HE IS A DIE-HARD

CONSERVATIVE.

BUT NOT EVERYONE IS

CONVINCED.

SO THE FORMER CONGRESSMAN

TURNED TV PERSONALITY HAS

HIS CRITICS, AND SOME SAY HE

SUFFERS FROM, QUOTE,"LIBERAL

MEDIA DISEASE."

DAVID BRODY WENT TO NEW YORK

TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE MAN

BEHIND THE ANCHOR DESK.

AND HIS GRANDMOTHER USED TO

WATCH THIS PROGRAM

FAITHFULLY.

I'LL JUST SAY THAT.

LET'S SEE.

30 SECONDS.

Reporter: ON THE SET OF

MORNINMORNING JOE,

SCARBOROUGH IS AN OASIS.

I USED TO BE FRIENDS WITH

JOE.

JOE USED TO BE A

CONSERVATIVE.

ON MSNBC, THE BIGGEST

IDIOT OF THEM ALL, JOE

SCARBOROUGH.

Reporter: BOY, HAVE YOU

TAKEN HITS, SLINGS AND

ARROWS.

THEY'RE BULLIES.

PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE, AND

THEY BACK OFF.

Reporter: BEING

CRITICIZED BY FELLOW

CONSERVATIVES IS UNUSUAL FOR

SCARBOROUGH.

DURING THE 1990s, HE

REPRESENTED ONE OF FLORIDA'S

MOST CONSERVATIVE DISTRICTS,

AND HE HELPED DELIVER A

BALANCED FEDERAL BUDGET.

NOWADAYS, HE SPEAKS ON A

RELIANCE ON THE GOD

ALMIGHTY.

SOMETHING HE BELIEVES IN

WHOLEHEARTEDLY.

HE GREW UP AS A SOUTHERN

BAPTIST.

FAITH IN THE GOD THAT WAS

REVEALED IN THE SERMON OF

THE MOUNT IS THE PERFECT

ANECDOTE TO THE MEDIAISM OF

OUR TIME.

Reporter: AND IT IS HIS

FAITH THAT GOT HIM THROUGH

SOME ROUGH TIMES.

HE RESIGNED FROM CONGRESS

AFTER ONLY SIX YEARS BECAUSE

OF CHALLENGES AT HOME.

ONE OF HIS SONS, ANDREW, HAS

A SLIGHT FORM OF AUTISM.

THE OTHER, JOEY, EMOTIONALLY

NEEDED HIS WASHINGTON,

D.C.-BASED FATHER PRESENT

BACK AT HOME.

HE SAID, DAD, I NEED YOU

AT HOME.

WE WENT TO A FAMILY

COUNSELLOR, AND THE FAMILY

COUNSELLOR SAID YOU CAN

EITHER COME TO PENSACOLA, OR

YOUR SON CAN GO UP TO

WASHINGTON, D.C.

BUT IF YOU DON'T DO THAT,

BAD THINGS ARE GOING TO

HAPPEN.

SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE.

I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE IT

WAS THE HARDEST DECISION I

EVER MADE, BUT IT WAS THE

EASIEST DECISION I EVER

MADE.

Reporter: TODAY HE IS

DEALING WITH THE PUNCHING

BAG ON THE RIGHT.

IT DRIVES DIE-HARD

CONSERVATIVES NUTS HE IS

CHUMMY WITH LIBERAL

POLITICIANS, INCLUDING MANY

WITHIN THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

BUT SCARBOROUGH, WHO GREW UP

IN THE CHURCH AND LIKES TO

QUOTE SCRIPTURE, OFFERS THIS

BIBLICAL PARALLEL.

JESUS DIDN'T HANG OUT

WITH THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS.

HE DIDN'T HANG OUT WITH

PEOPLE WHO PATTED HIM ON THE

BACK.

HE HUNG OUT WITH TAX

COLLECTORS.

Reporter: ANOTHER ISSUE

IS HE BREAKS PARTY RANKS.

REMEMBER WHEN CHRIS CHRISTIE

WELCOMED PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR

A HURRICANE SANDY PHOTO OP

DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTION?

ELECTION?

SCARBOROUGH HAD NO PROBLEM

WITH IT.

CHRIS CHRISTIE WAS DOING

HIS JOB.

Reporter: ADDING MORE

FUEL TO THE FIRE, THE

NEWTOWN MASSACRE.

FOR THE SAKE OF MY FOUR

CHILDREN AND YOURS, I CHOOSE

LIFE AND I CHOOSE CHANGE.

Reporter: THAT REALLY

STOKED THE FLAMES, WHEN THE

GUY WITH A STELLER N.R.A.

RATING SOFTENED HIS POSITION

ON GUN CONTROL, LEADING TO

ON-AIR ARGUMENTS WITH

CONSERVATIVE LAWMAKERS.

I'M ASKING --

THAT'S THE REALITY HERE.

IT IS NOT A GUN PROBLEM.

THERE IS A PERSON DOING

THAT.

Reporter: SCARBOROUGH

SAYS ANY BATTLE THAT HE HAS

WITH THE RIGHT IS ABOUT HOW

TO WING ELECTIONS.

HE CONTENDS THOSE SIDING

WITH SCREAMING RADIO TALK

SHOW HOSTS WON'T BE PART OF

THE WINNING TICKET.

MOST OF THESE GUYS

COULDN'T GET ELECTED DOG

CATCHER.

GETTING A BIG AUDIENCE ON

RADIO AND WINNING ELECTIONS,

THOSE ARE TWO COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT THINGS.

Reporter: BUT THE

MILLIONS WHO TUNE INTO THESE

SHOWS LABEL SCARBOROUGH AS A

DREADED RHINO, REPUBLICAN IN

NAME ONLY.

I MAY BE A RHINO IN THAT

IN 2013, I AM FOCUSED ON

WINNING.

RONALD REAGAN WAS

CONSERVATIVE IDEALOGICLY,

BUT IF WE'RE GOING TO WIN

THE FLORIDA CORRIDOR, IF

WE'RE GOING TO WIN THE

SUBURBS OF COLUMBUS, OHIO,

WE'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND THAT

WE'VE GOT TO REACH OUT TO

PEOPLE WHO DON'T USUALLY

VOTE REPUBLICAN.

Reporter: DESPITE THIS

TOUGH LOVE FOR

CONSERVATIVES, SCARBOROUGH

CALLS OUT THE OTHER SIDE,

TOO, WHETHER IT IS

REPRIMANDING TOP

DEMOCRATS --

BARACK OBAMA AND NANCY

PELOSI AND THE DEMOCRATIC

PARTY ARE OUT OF TOUCH.

DON'T SHIFT THIS TO ME.

ANSWER MY QUESTION.

Reporter: AND

SCARBOROUGH WILL CALL OUT

THE MEDIA, TOO, LIKE WHEN

THERE WAS AN INITIAL

RELUCTANCE TO LINK THE

BOSTON MARATHON BOMBERS TO

TO AL-QAEDA.

WHENEVER I'M PULLING MY

HAIR OUT BECAUSE I THINK THE

MEDIA IS BEING TOO LIBERAL,

I TURN TO FOX NEWS.

IT'S LIKE I'VE JUMPED INTO A

WARM SWIMMING POOL.

Reporter: ACTUALLY, THE

WATER ANALOGY WORKS PRETTY

WELL, WHEN TALKING ABOUT

4 A.M. WAKEUP CALLS AND THE

SIX-YEAR GRIND OF MORNING

TELEVISION.

YOU SHOULD SEE TOM HANKS

IN "CASTAWAY," AND I KIND OF

FEEL LIKE I'M ON THAT RAMP.

Reporter: BUT THE WAVES

HAVEN'T STOPPED HIM FROM

HOSTING A VERY POPULAR CABLE

MORNING SHOW THAT HELPED SET

THE POLITICAL DISCUSSION IN

AMERICA.

AND THEY DO SO BECAUSE OF

SCARBOROUGH'S ABILITY TO

COME ACROSS AS A REASONED

CONSERVATIVE ON A

POTENTIALLY LIBERAL-MINDED

NETWORK.

HE LOVES PLAYING THE GUITAR,

AND HIS IDOL?

PAUL McCARTNEY.

HE WAS SORT OF THE SANE,

RATIONAL GUY OF THE

BEATLES.

HE TRIED TO KEEP THEM A BIT

MORE MAINSTREAM.

Reporter: AND, OH, BY

THE WAY, THAT IS EXACTLY THE

MESSAGE SCARBOROUGH IS

TRYING TO PREACH TO HIS

CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN

FRIENDS.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, NEW

YORK.

Pat: THANKS, DAVID.

I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BE

HIS PRESS AGENT.

HE TOLD ME ABOUT HIS

GRANDMOTHER.

HIS GRANDMOTHER INSISTED ON

HIM READING THE BIBLE AND

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" WHEN

HE WAS A YOUNG GUY.

WE GO BACK A LONG WAY.

HE IS A GREAT GUY.

Wendy: HE IS A GREAT

GUY.

LIKE HE SAID, WHEN HE'S HAD

ENOUGH, HE HAS TO TURN ON

FOX NEWS TO BREATHE.

Pat: CONGRATULATIONS ON

AT LEAST ONE BRIGHT SPOT IN

MSNBC'S OTHERWISE CLOUDY

BACKGROUND.

WHAT HAVE YOU GOT NEXT?

Wendy: COMING UP, THE

PHONE CALL NO PARENT EVER

WANTS TO RECEIVE.

AND WHEN IT'S YOUR BABY,

YOU KNOW, YOUR HEART SINKS.

MY HEART JUST SUNK

BECAUSE SHE USED THE WORDS,

"THERE IS A ONE PERCENT

CHANCE.

THEY'RE GIVING HIM A ONE

PERCENT CHANCE TO LIVE."

Wendy: SEE WHAT

HAPPENED TO THEIR SON, AND

HOW HE BEAT THE ODDS TO

BECOME THE MIRACLE BOY.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

KIDS AND SWIMMING POOLS,

THEY'RE HARD TO SEPARATE,

ESPECIALLY IN THE SUMMER.

JOJOSIAH SANCHEZ WAS ONE OF

THOSE BOYS YOU COULDN'T GET

TO COME OUT OF THE POOL,

UNTIL THE DAY HE TOOK A

DEADLY DIVE.

Reporter: IN THE BLINK

OF AN EYE, A FUN DAY AT THE

POOL TURNED INTO A

NIGHTMARE.

THEY WERE ALL PLAYING

GAMES.

AND THE KIDS WERE DOING

TRICKS IN THE POOL.

AND JOSIAH DECIDED HE WAS

GOING TO DIVE HEAD FIRST

INTO THE POOL, AND WENT

STRAIGHT DOWN.

AND HIT THE TOP OF HIS

HEAD.

WHEN HE INITIALLY HIT, HE

HAD NO FEELING.

HE CAME STRAIGHT UP, AND

I COULD TELL HE WAS HURT

BECAUSE HE STARTED CRYING.

THEY PULLED HIM TO THE

SIDE OF THE DECK AND HE WAS

CRYING.

HE SLOWLY CAME OUT AND WAS

ABLE TO MOVE AND REGAIN

MOVEMENT.

AT THAT POINT OUR

FRIEND'S MOM CALLED MY MOM

TO TELL HER THERE HAD BEEN

AN ACCIDENT.

WHEN YOU FIRST GET THAT

PHONE CALL I, IT IS ONE

THOSE THINGS THAT EVERY

PARENT -- YOU NEVER WANT TO

HEAR.

WHEN IT IS YOUR BABY, YOUR

HEART SINKS.

Reporter: JEANETTE'S

HUSBAND WAS FLYING FROM

JACKSONVILLE WHEN JEANETTE

HEARD THE BAD NEWS.

HIS PHONE LIT UP IMMEDIATELY

WITH E-MAILS AND

VOICEMAILS.

WHEN I HEARD MY WIFE'S

VOICE, THE STRAIN, I

IMMEDIATELY SENSED THIS

ISN'T GOOD.

I COULD TELL BY HIS

EYES.

I COULD TELL BY HIS CRYING.

HE COULD HARDLY MOVE.

HE WAS VERY AWKWARD ON HOW

HE CARRIED HIMSELF UNTIL WE

GOT HIM IN THE CAR AND WENT

STRAIGHT TO URGENT CARE.

WITHIN FIVE MINUTES, THEY

HAD HIM IN A NECK BRACE, ON

A STABILIZED BOARD.

THEY HAD ALL OF THE DOCTORS

THERE AND THEY CONDUCTED

LIFE FLIGHT.

Reporter: X-RAYS SHOWED

JOSIAH BROKE FOUR VERTEBRA

IN HIS NECK.

THE DOCTORS TOLD ME, THIS

TYPE OF EMERGENCY IN THE

MEDICAL CLINIC, WE HAVE A

SAYING "C-4, BREATHE NO

MORE."

HE SAID WHEN YOU BREAK THE

C-4, YOU HAVE A 1% CHANCE OF

SURVIVAL.

WE'RE GOING TO DO OUR BEST,

BUT PLEASE CALL YOUR FAMILY

AND PREPARE FOR THE WORST.

Reporter: HE FRACTURED

C-3, C-4, C-5, AND C-6.

THAT'S WHEN YOU JUST PUT

IT IN THE HANDS OF GOD.

YOU LOOK AT HIM AND

CONFIDENTLY GO, BABY, YOU'RE

GOING TO BE OKAY.

Reporter: JEANETTE WAS

NOT ALLOWED TO JOIN HIM ON

HIS FLIGHT.

SHE COULD ONLY WATCH AS THE

CHOPPER FLEW AWAY.

SHE CALLED HER HUSBAND AGAIN

TO GIVE HIM AN UPDATE.

SHE SAID, THEY TOOK HIM.

THEY TOOK HIM.

MY HEART JUST SUNK BECAUSE

SHE USED THE WORDS, THERE IS

A ONE PERCENT CHANCE,

THEY'RE GIVING HIM A ONE

PERCENT CHANCE TO LIVE.

I HAD MADE A PHONE CALL

TO MY FAMILY AND LET

EVERYBODY KNOW.

Reporter: SO JEANETTE

CALLED FAMILY, AND FAMILY

CALLED FRIENDS, FRIENDS

CALLED CHURCHES, AND A

PRAYER CHAIN WAS WELL UNDER

WAY.

I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL

ON THE WAY, WHEN WE WERE

DRIVING, FROM DEAR PASTOR

FRIENDS AND THEY STARTED TO

SPEAK LIFE OVER HIM.

AND THEY SAID, HE IS GOING

TO LIVE.

I DON'T CARE WHAT THOSE

DOCTORS TOLD YOU, YOUR BABY

IS GOING TO BE OKAY.

I WALKED OFF THE AIRPLANE

AND PUT MY SUNGLASSES ON

BECAUSE I WAS A LITTLE

EMBARRASSED, PEOPLE SEEING A

GROWN MAN JUST BEGIN TO

WEEP.

I FELL TO MY KNEES, AND IT

WAS A TOTALLY CROWDED

AIRPORT.

AND I JUST FELL ON MY KNEES,

AND JUST STARTED SCREAMING

TO GOD.

YOU KNOW, YOU COULD HEAR THE

CRIES OF YOUR SPOUSE AND

YOUR FAMILY, BUT YOU'RE

HELPLESS TO DO ANYTHING AT

ALL.

I WOULD DIE FOR MY SONS.

I WOULD GIVE MY LIFE FOR

THEM.

THERE WAS THAT POINT WHERE

I'M SAYING, GOD, BREAK MY

NECK.

CAN YOU WORK IT OUT TO WHERE

IT'S ME?

Reporter: RICARDO

CAUGHT THE FIRST FLIGHT BACK

TO ATLANTA.

AFTER HOURS OF TESTS,

JEANETTE FINALLY GOT A

REPORT FROM THE DOCTOR AT

THE E.R.

THEY HAVE X-RAYS FROM

URGENT CARE AND THE X-RAYS

THEY TOOK THERE.

THEY SAID, WE DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

THESE CANNOT BE THE SAME

X-RAYS.

WE JUST WANT TO LET YOU

KNOW, YOUR SON IS GOING TO

BE OKAY.

YOUR SON IS GOING TO WALK

AND HE IS GOING TO BE FINE

AND LEAD A NORMAL LIFE

BECAUSE AT THAT POINT THE

CONCERN HE WAS GOING TO LIVE

WAS IMMINENT, BUT IF HE WAS

GOING TO LEAD A NORMAL LIFE

WAS STILL IN QUESTION.

I THINK THE X-RAYS DIFFERENT

FROM NOTHING BUT THE HAND OF

GOD.

WE KNOW BEYOND A SHADOW OF A

DOUBT IT WAS NOTHING BUT THE

HAND OF GOD THAT IT DOESN'T

ACTUALLY SEVER.

Reporter: THEIR PRAYERS

WERE ANSWERED.

JOSIAH STILL NEEDED EIGHT

HOURS OF SURGERY, WHICH WAS

SUCCESSFUL.

AND HE STAYED IN THE

HOSPITAL FOR THREE WEEKS.

WHEN WE BROUGHT HIM HOME

FROM THE HOSPITAL, THE

ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD WAS ON

THE PORCH.

THEY WERE CHEERING, MIRACLE

BOY IS HOME.

THEY WOULD CAMP HERE AT THE

HOUSE AND WATCH MOVIES WITH

HIM.

BY THE TIME THE FIRST

PHYSICAL THERAPY APPOINTMENT

CAME, I CALLED THE DOCTOR

AND SAID I DON'T THINK HE

NEEDS TO GO TO THE PHYSICAL

THERAPY; HE IS DOING SO

WELL.

WE SAW THE DOCTOR, AND HE

SAID, I THINK YOU'RE RIGHT.

Reporter: JOSIAH FULLY

RECOVERED, AND HE LIKES TO

TELL HIS STORY TO OTHERS.

I THINK WHEN PEOPLE PRAY,

GOD HEARS THEM.

I HAD A ONE PERCENT CHANCE

OF SURVIVAL.

IF THEY SAID IT WAS LUCK,

I'D EXPLAIN TO THEM HOW I

SAY IT IS NOT LUCK.

IT CAN BE THEIR OPINION.

BUT IT IS NOT AN OPINION.

IT IS A FACT, ABOUT WHAT GOD

CAN DO AND HOW HE CAN DO

IT.

Reporter: JOSIAH IS AN

ACTIVE 12-YEAR-OLD WHO LOVES

TO PLAY BASKETBALL.

BUT NEITHER HE NOR HIS

FAMILY WILL EVER FORGET WHAT

HAPPENED.

WHEN JOSIAH HAD GOTTEN

HIS NECK BRACE OFF, IT HAD

PROBABLY BEEN A FEW DAYS

AFTER.

MICAH WAS ASLEEP, BUT JOSIAH

WAS CRYING.

ONE OF THOSE HURT CRIES THAT

A PARENT WOULD KNOW.

I WALK IN, BEFUDDLED, AND HE

IS LYING FACE DOWN.

AND I'M LIKE, BABY, WHAT'S

THE MATTER.

HE TURNS ON HIS BACK, AND HE

LOOKED AT ME AND HIS FACE

WAS JUST SOAKED WITH TEARS.

AND HE SAYS, DAD, I ALMOST

DIED.

AND, UM, I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

BUT AS I PUT MY HAND ON HIS

HEAD, I BEGAN TO MOVE MY

HAND ON HIS BACK, AND AS

SOON AS MY HAND HIT THAT

SCAR, I IMMEDIATELY KNEW

WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO SAY

TO MY SON.

I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE

ONE OF THOSE THINGS HE WILL

REMEMBER THE REST OF HIS

LIFE BECAUSE I KNOW I WILL.

I SAID, JOSIAH, YOU FEEL

THIS SCAR?

YOUR SCAR DOESN'T REMIND ME

OF THAT.

YOUR SCARY MINDS ME OF GOD'S

GRACE AND GOD'S LOVE AND

GOD'S MERCY.

YOU DIDN'T GET THIS SCAR

FROM FALLING DOWN.

YOU GOT THIS SCAR WHEN GOD

PULLED YOU OUT.

NEVER, EVER AGAIN LET THIS

SCARY MIND YOU OF DEATH.

LET IT REMIND YOU OF GOD'S

GRACE AND MERCY.

Wendy: IS ANYTHING TOO

HARD FOR GOD?

HE IS THE GOD OF MIRACLES.

AND THAT WAS DEFINITELY A

MIRACLE.

HE SAID IT WAS A FACT.

Pat: A FACT.

I LOVE IT.

WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF OTHER

TESTIMONIES.

Wendy: THIS IS AN

ANSWER TO PRAYER.

IRENE FROM OREGON

EXPERIENCED CHRONIC NECK

PAIN AS A RESULT OF WHIPLASH

FROM SEVERAL CAR WRECKS SHE

HAD IN THE PAST.

HER DOCTOR RECOMMENDLIED

PHYSICAL THERAPY, BUT NONE

OF IT WORKED.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND HEARD

PAT SAY, "THE PAIN IN YOUR

NEXT IS GOIN NECK IS GOING

AWAY, AND ANY DETERIORATING

ARTHRITIS IS LEAVING YOUR

NECK IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR NECK,

AND YOU'LL FEEL HEAT AND THE

PRESENCE OF GOD IN JESUS'

NAME."

IRENE DID EXACTLY THAT AND

HER PAIN VANISHED AND IT HAS

NOT RETURNED.

Pat: PRAISE THE LORD.

HERE IS ANOTHER ONE FROM EL

PASO, TEXAS.

A LADY NAMED NELLIE.

SHE BEGAN HAVING PAINS IN

HER STOMACH, LAST MARCH

27th.

A AN ULTRASOUND TEST SHOWED

A MASS ON HER LIVER.

HER DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY

SCHEDULED ANOTHER TEST.

ON APRIL 8th, NELLIE

CALLED CBN FOR OUR STAFF TO

PRAY FOR HER HEALING.

WHEN SHE HAD THE SECOND

TEST, THE RESULTS CAME BACK

NEGATIVE, NO MASS, AND

NELLIE WAS HEALED.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU,

FOLKS.

WHATEVER YOUR NEED IS,

YOU'RE SPECIAL.

AND GOD IS A GOD OF POWER.

HE'S A GOD OF MIGHT.

HE IS THE CREATOR OF

EVERYTHING.

AND THIS IS NOT TOO HARD FOR

THE LORD.

I AM THE GOD OF ALL FLESH,

GOD SAYS.

IS ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR

ME?

AND THE ANSWER IS, NO, IT

ISN'T.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

AND BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME, I

JOIN TOGETHER WITH MY SISTER

IN CHRIST.

AND WE BELIEVE GOD RIGHT NOW

FOR MIRACLES IN PEOPLE'S

LIVES.

Wendy: YES.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS A

MASS IN YOUR ABDOMEN, AND

YOU'VE BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT

IT.

IT IS NOT CANCEROUS, BUT IT

IS LIKE A TUMOR.

YOU PUT YOUR HAND RIGHT

THERE WHERE THAT MASS IS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, IT IS

GOING AWAY.

WENDY, DO YOU HAVE

ANYTHING?

Wendy: THERE ARE

WOUNDED WARRIORS, LOTS OF

THEM, AND THEY'RE IN SO

MUCH -- THEY'RE ASKING,

LORD, WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO

ME.

GOD WANTS YOU TO KNOW HE HAS

A BIGGER PICTURE.

HE SAW THIS COMING.

DON'T GIVE UP HOPE.

DON'T LOSE HOPE.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GIVE

UP.

YOUR ANSWER IS COMING.

GOD HAS A PLAN, A BIGGER

PURPOSE THAN YOU KNEW.

Pat: THERE WAS AN

INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT, AND IT

IS SOMETHING HAVING TO DO

WITH FLAME.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN IN A

WELDING SITUATION --

WHATEVER IT IS, YOUR EYE

EYESIGHT HAS BEEN IMPAIRED.

PUT YOUR HANDS ON YOUR EYES,

AND AS WE SPEAK, GOD IS

GIVING YOU COMPLETE VISION.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THOSE

EYES ARE OPENED.

Wendy: SOMEONE WITH A

COLLARBONE PROBLEM -- YOUR

COLLARBONE HAS JUST BEEN IN

SO MUCH PAIN.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

YOUR FEELING THAT WARMTH

GOING THROUGH YOUR BODY

RIGHT NOW.

JUST PRAISE HIM.

HE IS HEALING YOU.

Pat: FEAR IS LEAVING

YOU RIGHT NOW.

WE BIND THE SPIRIT OF FEAR

THAT IS IN THIS AUDIENCE.

FEAR ABOUT THE FUTURE, FEAR

ABOUT FINANCES, FEAR ABOUT

RETIREMENT.

ALL OF THE FEAR YOU'RE

HAVING, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, WE BIND THAT SPIRIT

OF FEAR, AND FROM IT WILL

COME FORTH A SPIRIT OF

FAITH.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

LORD.

Pat: PRAISE GOD.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: IF YOU NEED

FURTHER PRAYER, WE'RE HERE

FOR YOU, 1-800-759-0700.

WENDY?

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

WE'LL "BRING IT ON" WITH

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

LINDA ASKS: "IS CREMATION

ANTI-CHRISTIAN.

MY HUSBAND AND I ARE

CONSIDERING IT BECAUSE OF

THE HIGH EXPENSE OF BURIAL

THESE DAYS."

STAY TUNED FOR THAT ANSWER

AND MUCH MORE COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

A RECENT SURGE IN VIOLENCE

IS RAISING FEARS OF A CIVIL

WAR IN IRAQ.

NEARLY 2,000 PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN KILLED SINCE THE

BEGINNING OF APRIL.

TWO SUICIDE BOMBERS KILLED

2 29 WORSHIPPERS ON TUESDAY

IN A SHI'ITE MOSQUE IS

BAGHDAD.

NO GROUP HAS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY, BUT SIMILAR

ATTACKS HAVE BEEN CARRIED

OUT BY AL-QAEDA.

IRAQ HAS ALSO EXPERIENCED A

RISE IN POLITICAL TENSION.

SOME OF THE LARGEST PROTESTS

IN 20 YEARS ARE BREAKING OUT

ACROSS BRAZIL.

AROUND 100,000 PEOPLE ARE

TAKING TO THE STREETS

THERE.

THEY'RE FRUSTRATED BY POOR

TRANSPORTATION, HEALTH

SERVICES, EDUCATION, AND

TAXES.

MOST OF THE DEMONSTRATIONS

ARE PEACEFUL, BUT SOME

VIOLENT CLASHES ARE BREAKING

OUT NOW BETWEEN PROTESTORS

AND POLICE IN SEVERAL

CITIES.

THE UNREST IS RAISING

SECURITY CONCERNS AS BRAZIL

PREPARES TO HOST THE WORLD

CUP

NEXT

YEAR.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY TUNED, PAT

AND WENDY

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT, IT IS

TIME FOR "BRING IT ON."

WE HAVE SOME GREAT E-MAIL

QUESTIONS TODAY.

ARE YOU READY?

Pat: I AM HALF READY.

Wendy: LINDA WANTS TO

KNOW IS CREMATION

ANTI-CHRISTIAN.

MY SISTER SAYS IT IS A PAGAN

PRACTICE, AND CHRISTIANS

SHOULD NOT BE CREMATED.

MY HUSBAND AND I ARE

CONSIDERING IT BECAUSE OF

THE HIGH EXPENSE OF BURIAL.

WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF

MONEY, AND WOULD PREFER NOT

TO WASTE IT ON DEATH

EXPENSES.

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION, IS IT

WRONG OR IS IT A SIN?

Pat: IN THE BIBLE,

CONGRESSMAN MATIO CREMATION

WAS AN INSULT.

IF SOMEBODY'S BONES WERE

BURNED IT WAS AN INSULT.

IT WAS A FORM OF

DISCRATION.

THOSE WHO WERE HONORED,

OBVIOUSLY WERE BURNED.

LOOK WHAT THEY DID IN EGYPT

WITH THE PHARAOHS.

IT WAS AN HONORABLE THING.

JESUS WAS WRAPPED UP AND

BURIED.

THE GREAT PATRIARCHS HAD

TOMBS THAT WERE BURIED.

I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD DO

CREMATION.

IT IS PAGAN, AND IT IS AN

INSULT TO THE CORPSE OF THE

DEAD PERSON.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS ABOUT IT, YOU'RE

INSULTING THE CORPSE WHEN

YOU BURN THEM.

Wendy: LESLIE SAYS, "I

HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT

TATTOOS.

I WAS RAISED SOUTHERN

BAPTIST AND WAS TOLD NOT TO

MARK OUR BODIES WITH

TATTOOS.

I'VE BEEN THINKING OF

GETTING ONE, BUT I AM NOT

SURE.

WHAT IS YOUR THOUGHT ON THE

ISSUE?"

Pat: THE THOUGHT IS

DON'T DO IT.

THEY HAVE A SHOW CALLED L.A.

INK, AND SOME OF THE AWFUL

THINGS THEY DO TO THEIR

BODIES ARE UNREAL.

NEVERTHELESS, IT IS PAGAN.

IT IS PAGAN TO MARK YOUR

BODY, TO

CUT YOUR

BODY, TO

MAKE MARKS ON IT.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, IT WAS

FORBIDDEN.

IT WAS JUST SOMETHING YOU

WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO DO.

YOU ASKED ME MY THOUGHTS,

AND MY THOUGHTS ARE DON'T DO

IT.

Wendy: AND IT'S VERY

HARD TO REVERSE A TATTOO, AS

WELL.

JANE WANTS TO KNOW, "DOES

SATAN KNOW MY THOUGHTS?

AND DOES HE, AS MY ENEMY,

PLANT SEEDS OF DOUBT IN ME,

OR IS THAT SIMPLY SOMETHING

I DO AND HE HAS NOTHING TO

DO WITH IT?"

Pat: I THINK SATAN CAN

PLANT DOUBTS.

HE IS A DECIPHER.

DECEIVER, HE IS A LIAR.

HE WAS TALKING TO JESUS AND

PUTTING DOUBTS IN HIS MIND.

"IF YOU'RE THE SON OF GOD,

JUMP OFF THIS BUILDING," AND

SO FORTH.

HE CAN DECEIVE YOU, HE CAN

PUT FEAR IN YOU.

AND HE CAN PUT DEPRESSION ON

YOU.

BUT CAN HE READ YOUR

THOUGHTS?

I DON'T KNOW.

IT IS NOT REALLY CLEAR.

I THINK WHEN WE'RE TALKING

TO THE LORD, SATAN CAN'T GET

INVOLVED IN OUR PRAYER

LIFE.

BUT WHETHER HE CAN INTERCEPT

OUR THOUGHTS -- LET'S FACE

IT, YOU AND I -- AND I KNOW

PEOPLE WHO SAY THIS IS

TERRIBLE -- BUT IT'S TRUE.

WE PROJECT A.M. AND F.M.

RADIO SIGNALS.

SO WHEN WE'RE THINKING, OUR

THOUGHTS CAN BE PROJECTED.

SO CAN SATAN TUNE IN ON OUR

BRAIN WAVES?

CHANCES ARE YES, BUT I DON'T

WANT TO GET A BIG THEOLOGY

ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT IS NOT

CLEAR IN THE BIBLE.

Wendy: HE CAN OBSERVE

US AND SEE IF WE'RE DOWN IN

THE DUMPS --

Pat: IF YO YOU'RE

REALLY SENSITIVE TO OTHER

PEOPLE, PEOPLE GIVE YOU

SIGNALS.

THERE ARE SIGNALS IN THEIR

MINDS, SIGNALS IN THEIR

HEARTS.

WE PROJECT THINGS AS HUMAN

BEINGS.

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY.

TRISHA ASKS: "DID JESUS

DECIDE ON HIS OWN TO GO TO

THE WILDERNESS FOR 40 DAYS,

OR DID GOD LEAD HIM TO DO

THAT.

DID GOD DESIRE HIS SON TO BE

TEMPTED?"

Pat: I KNEW A LITTLE

GREEK, AND HE RAN A

RESTAURANT.

THE WORD IN GREEK IS ECBOLO,

WHICH MEANS TO THROW OUT.

THE BIBLE SAYS THE SPIRIT

ECBOLOED JESUS, IN A SENSE.

SO HE DROVE HIM OUT INTO THE

WILDERNESS.

THE HOLY SPIRIT PUSHED HIM

OUT IN THE WILDERNESS.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

IN THE GREEK, ECBOLO.

Wendy: MYRIAM WANTS TO

KNOW, "HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT

EXPRESSIONS HOLY COW.

I FEEL NOTHING BUT OUR GOD

IS HOLY.

I HEAR CHRISTIANS ON TV AND

RADIO USING THESE

EXPRESSIONS."

Pat: YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT.

JESUS SAID, DON'T SWEAR BY

THE TEMPLE.

DON'T SWEAR BY THE HAIR ON

YOUR HEAD.

LET YOUR YEA BE YEAH, AND

NAY BE NAY.

THE BRITISH USED THE TERM

"BLOODY."

IT'S A BLOODY SHAME.

IT CAME FROM THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST.

THAT'S WHERE IT CAME FROM.

Wendy: I DID NOT KNOW

THAT.

Pat: SO WE'VE TAKEN

RELIGIOUS EXPRESSIONS, AND

INSTEAD OF USING OUTRIGHT

BLASPHEMY, WE USE STEPPED

DOWN BLASPHEMY, BUT IN

BLASPHEMY.

Wendy: JOHN SAYS,

"SOMEONE SUGGESTED WE OBTAIN

A BIBLE CONTAINING THE

OPRAFA."

Pat: IT IS THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OLD

TESTAMENT AND THE NEW

TESTAMENT.

BUT THE OPOCRAFER WAS THE

INTERTESTAMENT BETWEEN THE

OLD TESTAMENT, LIKE MALACHI,

AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.

A LOT OF THEM ARE FANCIFUL,

AND LOT ARE FIRST AND

SECOND -- SOME MAY HAVE SOME

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE IN

RELATION TO THE MACCABIS,

BUT THEY'RE NOT THE SAME

AUTHENTICITY AS THE CANON OF

SCRIPTURES.

Wendy: THESE WERE GREAT

QUESTIONS TODAY.

KEEP THEM COMING.

Pat: YOU CAN LOG IN ON

OUR INTERNET, AND WE'LL GET

TO YOUR QUESTIONS AS SOON AS

WE CAN, OKAY?

MARY WOODS COULD HAVE

PANICKED WHEN SHE BECAME THE

SOLE SUPPORT FOR HERSELF AND

TWO YOUNG DAUGHTERS, BUT

MARY DIDN'T.

AND STILL SHE RELIED ON GOD

TO TAKE HER THROUGH THE

PROBLEM.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MARY WOODS

LOVES BEING A MOM.

SHE IS WORKING HARD TO

PROVIDE THE BEST FOR THE

GIRLS.

AFTER HER HUSBAND DIED, SHE

FOUND HERSELF RAISING THEM

ALONE.

EVERY DAY I HAVE TO THANK

GOD FOR GIVING ME THE GRACE

AND THE STRENGTH TO GET UP

EVERY MORNING AND BE A MOM

FOR A 7-YEAR-OLD AND A

6-YEAR-OLD, BECAUSE THEY ARE

VERY ENERGETIC, BUT I LOVE

IT.

Reporter: SHE USED TO

STAY AT HOME WITH THE KIDS,

BUT WITH HER HUSBAND GONE,

SHE NEEDED THE JOBS.

HOW QUICK CAN I GET A JOB

BECAUSE RENT WAS GOING TO BE

DUE THE NEXT MONTH.

I DID NOT KNOW WHAT I WAS

GOING TO DO.

Reporter: SHE DIDN'T

HAVE TO WORRY LONG.

HER FORMER BOSS OFFERED HER

A FULL-TIME JOB.

I SAID, I BELIEVE THIS IS

THE LORD.

THANK YOU.

I SAT THERE IN AWE OF HOW

GOD MOVED SO FAST.

Reporter: MARY

FAITHFULLY TITHES, AND SHE

ENJOYS GIVING TO CBN.

THE LIVES THAT YOU TOUCH

THAT I SEE IS INCREDIBLE.

THAT'S WHY I AM BLESSED IN

GIVING TO CBN.

Reporter: SHE

ESPECIALLY APPRECIATES CBN'S

ANIMATED SERIES

"SUPERBOOK."

"SUPERBOOK" IS AWESOME

BECAUSE IT IS TEACHING THE

KIDS BIBLICAL VALUES AT

THEIR LEVEL OF

UNDERSTANDING.

Reporter: AND SHE ALSO

ENJOYS BEING A PART OF

REACHING PEOPLE WHO

DESPERATELY NEED HELP.

SEEING CBN OUTREACH TO

FAMILIES IN NEED OF HOMES,

WATER, FOOD -- WHEREVER THE

NEED IS, THAT'S WHAT

IMPORTANT BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT THE LORD SAYS.

Reporter: MARY

ENCOURAGES EVERYONE TO

SUPPORT CBN.

THE GIVING FROM YOUR

HEART, WITH WILLINGNESS AND

OBEDIENCE TO THE LORD, HE

CAN'T HELP BUT TO BLESS

YOU.

Pat: IT IS WONDERFUL TO

HEAR THE TESTIMONIES OF

PEOPLE WHO ARE FAITHFUL TO

THE LORD.

THEY OBEY GOD.

THEY DO WHAT HE SAYS, AND HE

DOES WHAT HE SAYS.

AND FOR THOSE WHO SHARE WITH

US, AND WE WANT YOU TO DO

IT, JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WE HAVE SOMETHING WE WANT TO

GIVE YOU, IF YOU JOIN WITH

PLEDGE EXPRESS.

YOU TELL YOUR BANK OR

COMING OUT.

THIS IS "MIRACLE LIVING,"

AND IS IT EVER GORGEOUS.

I'LL TELL YOU YOU, OUR

EDITORS ARE GETTING BETTER

AND BETTER AND BETTER.

THERE IS A NEW PICTURE OF

THE REGENT UNIVERSITY CHAPEL

AND THE DIVINITY SCHOOL.

AND THERE IS AN ARTICLE HERE

BY ME.

AND THEN THERE IS SOMETHING

ABOUT DOGS.

DO DOGS GO TO HEAVEN?

Wendy: AND SOMETIMES

THERE ARE RECIPES, TOO, BY

YOUR LOVELY WIFE.

Pat: THESE LOOK LIKE

LITTLE BEAGLES.

IT IS THE FRUIT OF

OBEDIENCE, AND THERE IS AN

ARTICLE ABOUT MICHAEL LITTLE

AND AN ARTICLE ABOUT TERRY,

AND THE FAMILY OF JESUS.

IT'S REALLY BEAUTIFUL.

AND WE'LL SEND THAT TO YOU

AS PART OF THE FAMILY AS YOU

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, YOU

CAN COUNT ON ME.

LET'S HAVE AN ADVENTURE

TOGETHER.

HERE IS WENDY WITH MORE.

Wendy: UP NEXT, THE

TRUE STORY OF A SECRET AGENT

AND HOW HE BUSTED A RING OF

PEDOPHILES.

I HAD TO THINK LIKE THEY

DID.

THE MEN THAT I WAS DEALING

WITH WERE SEEING THE WORLD

THROUGH A WHOLE DIFFERENT

SET OF EYES.

AND IT WAS MY MOST DIFFICULT

CASE AND MY MOST DISGUSTING

CASE.

Wendy: THIS F.B.I.

VETERAN TELLS WHAT WEAPON HE

TOOK INTO EVERY UNDERCOVER

ASSIGNMENT WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Wendy: FOR MORE THAN 25

YEARS, BOB HAMMER LED A

DOUBLE LIFE, AND HE GOT PAID

FOR IT.

IT WAS DANGEROUS WORK, BUT

AS AN UNDERCOVER AGENT, BOB

HAD A SECRET WEAPON IN HIS

ARSENAL FROM THE GET-GO.

I POSED AS A CONTRACT

KILLER, A DRUG DEALER, A

RESIDENTIAL BURGLAR, A WHITE

COLLAR CRIMINAL.

IT WAS A PEDOPHILE FOR THREE

YEARS.

I'VE BEEN AN INTERNATIONAL

ARMS DEALER.

Reporter: BOB HAMMER

SPENT 26 YEARS WITH THE

F.B.I. AS AN UNDERCOVER

AGENT.

HE HAS BEEN IN GUN BATTLES

AND LIFE-THREATENING

SESSIONS, BUT HE SAYS HE

FELT A PROTECTION THAT THE

BEST BODY ARMOR AND COVER

COULDN'T PROVIDE.

I PRAYED BEFORE EVERY

UNDERCOVER ASSIGNMENT.

TYPICALLY IT WAS A PRAYER OF

STRENGTH.

JUST, GOD, GIVE ME THE

STRENGTH TO CARRY OUT THIS

ASSIGNMENT.

AND EACH OF THOSE

ASSIGNMENTS HAD AN ELEMENT

OF DANGER.

I WAS THE UNDERCOVER AGENT

IN THE L.A. MAFIA FAMILY

CASE, WHERE WE TOOK OUT THE

TOP 15 MOB GUYS IN L.A.

IF THEY DISCOVERED WHO I

WAS, I COULD HAVE BEEN

KILLED.

BUT THERE WAS USUALLY A

SENSE OF PEACE BECAUSE I

THOUGHT I WAS WHERE I WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE.

Reporter: HE FOUND HIS

CALLING WHILE IN HIS 20s.

BOB APPLIED FOR A JOB AS AN

F.B.I. AGENT BUT WAS TURNED

DOWN DUE TO A HIRING

FREEZE.

BEFORE ACCEPTING ANOTHER

JOB, HE STOPPED TO PRAY.

THE NEXT MORNING THE

F.B.I. CALLED AND THEY SAID,

WE JUST HAD SOMEBODY DROP

OUT OF OUR SEPTEMBER CLASS.

ARE YOU STILL INTERESTED IN

BEING AN F.B.I. AGENT?

THAT WAS MY CALLING.

I COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A

MORE DIRECT ANSWER TO

PRAYER.

I ALWAYS CAME BACK TO THAT

ANSWER TO PRAYER, THAT I WAS

MEANT TO BE IN THE F.B.I.

Reporter: BOB SAYS HIS

FAITH IN GOD GAVE HIM

COMFORT AND PROTECTION.

DEUTERONOMY 31: 8: "THE

LORD HIMSELF WILL GO BEFORE

YOU AND BE WITH YOU.

HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR

FORSAKE YOU.

DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED.

DO NOT BE AFRAID."

THAT VERSE MEANT A LOT TO ME

THROUGHOUT MY CAREER.

THERE WERE TIMES, LITERALLY

WALKING INTO AN UNDERCOVER

MISSION, INTO AN ASSIGNMENT,

WALKING INTO A ROOM FULL OF

MEN WITH GUNS, NOT KNOWING

LITERALLY WHETHER I WOULD

COME OUT ALIVE, WHERE I WAS

RECITING THAT VERSE.

IT SUSTAINED ME THROUGH SOME

OF THE TOUGHEST

ASSIGNMENTS.

Reporter: BUT HE

MAINTAINED HIS CHRISTIAN

FAITH AND VALUES, EVEN WHILE

UNDERCOVER.

EVEN THOUGH I MAY HAVE

BEEN PORTRAYING AN

INTERNATIONAL DRUG DEALER OR

AN ARMS DEALER OR A CONTRACT

KILLER, I WAS ABLE TO

MAINTAIN THOSE VALUES.

NOW, THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I

FELT LIKE I WAS KIND OF

SQUEEZING ALL OF THIS EVIL

OUT OF MY SPONGE-LIKE BRAIN

BEFORE I WENT HOME, BEFORE I

WAS ABLE TO SPEND TIME WITH

MY WIFE AND CHILDREN.

BUT I WAS ABLE TO COMPART

COMPARTMENTALIZE IT.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

TOUGHEST ASSIGNMENTS WAS THE

THREE YEARS HE SPENT

INFILTRATING THE PEDOPHILE

ASSOCIATION CALL NAMBLA.

IN NAMBLA, I HAD TO

BECOME ONE OF THEM.

THE MEN THAT I WAS DEALING

WITH WERE SEEING THE WORLD

THROUGH A WHOLE DIFFERENT

SET OF EYES.

AND IT WAS MY MOST DIFFICULT

CASE AND MY MOST DISGUSTING

CASE.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

HIS UNDERCOVER WORK, SEVERAL

MEN IN THE GROUP'S

LEADERSHIP WERE CONVICTED ON

FEDERAL CHARGES.

HIS BOOK "THE LAST

UNDERCOVER," DEALS HIS

CAREER IN THE F.B.I. AND THE

NAMBLA CASE.

IT WAS THE BOOK I HAD TO

WRITE.

I WANTED TO ALERT THE WORLD

TO THIS ORGANIZATION AND THE

BOY-LOVER AGENDA.

MOST OF THE MEN I DEALT WITH

SOUGHT THE CHILDREN THAT

WERE SEEKING A FATHER

FIGURE.

A LOT OF THEIR TARGETS WERE

FROM SINGLE PARENT HOMES OR

FROM HOMES WHERE THERE WAS

AN ABUSIVE FATHER.

BECAUSE WHAT THESE MEN WANT

TO DO IS THEY WANT TO CREATE

SECRETS.

THEY WANT TO HAVE A

SECRET -- THIS IS JUST OUR

SECRET YOU CAN'T TELL

ANYONE.

Reporter: BOB RETIRED

SHORTLY AFTER THE NAMBLA

CASE.

THE DIFFICULT ROLES WERE

PART OF LEARNING HE COULD

TRUST GOD WITH HIS LIFE.

HE HAS OBVIOUSLY PROVEN

TO ME HE WILL PROTECT ME.

I FELT HIS PROTECTION FOR 26

YEARS.

AND BECAUSE I WAS

SUCCESSFUL, THERE WAS

MEANING TO WHAT I WAS TRYING

TO DO, AND I WAS WHERE GOD

WANTED ME TO BE.

Wendy: WOW.

BOB HAMMER'S BOOK IS CALLED

"THE LAST UNDERCOVER."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

Pat: WHAT A STORY.

TOMORROW, FOLKS, YOU'RE

GOING TO MEET A MAN WHO WAS

HEALED OF TERMINAL BRAIN

CANCER.

TODAY WE LEAVE WER WITH

THESE WORDS: "FOR HE SHALL

GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER

YOU TO KEEP YOU IN ALL OF

YOUR WAYS."

FOR LEE AND WENDY AND ALL OF

US, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

AND WE'LL BE SEEING YOU

TOMORROW ON ANOTHER EDITION

OF "THE 700 CLUB."

BYE-BYE.
