The 700 Club - June 20, 2013

Adventurer Bear Grylls reveals a side of him that many haven't seen. Plus, young father Matt Chandler comes to grips with a brain tumor diagnosis and the reality that he has less than three years to live. Read Transcript


Lee: A REVOLUTIONARY

NEW TREATMENT THAT IS

KILLING CANCER.

IT JUST ABSOLUTELY AMAZES

ME THAT MEDICAL SCIENCE IS

JUST NOW FINDING THIS OUT.

Lee: PLUS...

I LOVE THE STRONG LINK

BETWEEN SURVIVAL AND LIFE.

LIFE.

Lee: WE'LL EXPLORE THE

GREAT OUTDOORS WITH BEAR

GRILLS.

HE SAYS IT LOOKS REALLY

BAD.

I HAVE TWO TO THREE YEARS OF

LIFE.

Lee: HOW THIS FATHER

PROVED THE DOCTORS WRONG ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S BEEN A MASSIVE

STIMULUS, AND THEY TALKED

ABOUT QE-2, AND THE FEDS

HAVE BEEN BUYING TREASURY

SECURITIES AT THE CLIP OF

ABOUT $85 BILLION A MONTH.

NOW THEY SAY THE PARTY IS

GOING PRETTY GOOD, AND WE'RE

GOING TO START TAKING THE

PUNCH BOWL AWAY.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT THE

INTEREST RATES HAVE GOT TO

GO BACK TO A MORE NORMAL

LEVEL, AND IT IS GOING TO

MEAN SOME CHAOS IN THE

MARKETS.

WENDY?

Wendy: YEAH, AND THE

FED SAYS THAT IS A GOOD

THING BECAUSE IT IS A SIGN

THAT THE ECONOMY IS GETTING

BETTER.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: CHAIRMAN BEN

BERNANKE IS OPTMISTIC ABOUT

IMPROVING U.S. ECONOMY.

BUT HE SAYS THE FED WILL

TAKE A GO SLOW APPROACH.

IT WILL CONTINUE THE

STIMULUS, INCLUDING THE

PURCHASE OF $85 BILLION

WORTH OF BONDS EACH MONTH.

BUT BERNANKE SAYS AT THE

ECONOMY CONTINUES TO

IMPROVE, THE STIMULUS

EFFORTS WILL BE SCALED

BACK.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO

REDUCE THE PACE OF PURCHASES

IN MEASURED STEPS, ENDING

PURCHASES AROUND MID-YEAR.

Reporter: WHILE

UNEMPLOYMENT REMAINS HIGH,

CURRENTLY AT 7.6%, THEY

BELIEVE THE RATE COULD DROP

TO 6.5% SOMETIME NEXT YEAR.

BERNANKE SAYS AN INCREASE IN

NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION AND

SALES HAS BOOSTED THE

ECONOMY.

THE HOUSING SECTOR, WHICH

HAS BEEN A DRAG ON GROWTH

SINCE THE CRISIS, IS NOW

OBVIOUSLY A SUPPORT TO

GROWTH.

IT IS NOT ONLY CREATING

CONSTRUCTION JOBS, BUT AS

HOUSE PRICES RISE, INCREASED

HOUSEHOLD WEALTH.

Reporter: HIGH INTEREST

RATES WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON

CONSUMERS, MAKING IT MORE

COSTLY TO BUY CARS AND

HOMES.

MORTGAGE RATES HAVE RISEN A

HALF PERCENT SINCE MAY.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN THIS HIGH

IN MORE THAN A YEAR.

SARAH AND DAVID ARE

PERSPECTIVE NEW HOME BUYERS

IN NEWBERRY PARK,

CALIFORNIA.

AND THEY WANT TO GET IN

BEFORE THE RATES GO TOO

HIGH.

EVERY 1% INCREASE IN HOME

MORTGAGE RATES OWNING A HOME

MORE.

AS FOR CAR LOANS, THE HIGHER

RATES MEAN IT WILL COST

SARAH AND DAVID AN

ADDITIONAL $200 A YEAR TO

REPLACE THEIR CURRENT

VEHICLE.

THE UPSIDE IS AMERICANS WILL

EARN HIGHER INTEREST ON

THEIR SAVINGS ACCOUNTS AND

C.D.s.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I KNOW THOSE

LOOKING FOR MORTGAGES, THIS

SIDE OF 1% INTEREST RATES

HAVE BEEN CRAZY, BUT THE

RETIREES HAVE TAKEN IT IN

THE NECK.

IT IS SO HARD TO WORK ON A

RETIREMENT WHEN YOU'RE MONEY

DOESN'T EARN ANYTHING.

AND THE MONEY ON FEDERAL

SECURITIES HASN'T BEEN

EARNING.

AND I WARNED PEOPLE, DO NOT

INVEST IN LONG-TERM

GOVERNMENT BONDS BECAUSE THE

PRINCIPLE IS GOING DOWN.

AS INTEREST RATES GO UP, THE

PRINCIPLE GOES DOWN.

INTEREST RATES GO DOWN, THE

VALUE OF PRINCIPLE GOES UP.

SO LOOK AT YOUR PORTFOLIO

AND MOVE NOW.

IT IS A LITTLE BIT LATE

ALREADY, BUT THERE IS STILL

PLENTY OF TIME TO MAKE SOME

SERIOUS MOVES, AND THAT

INCLUDES REFIING YOUR

HOUSE.

YOU CAN FIGURE WHAT THAT

WILL DO TO YOU.

EVEN 4% IS A PRETTY LOW RATE

HISTORICALLY, BUT IT IS

GOING TO BE GOOD NEWS FOR

RETIREES.

THERE HAS BEEN A DISTORTION

IN THE MARKET.

THE FED HAS KEPT THESE

INTEREST RATES DOWN WAY TOO

LONG.

AND, WELL, WE'LL SEE WHAT

WILL HAPPEN, AND WHETHER,

AGAIN, THEY CAN WITHDRAW THE

PUNCH BOWL LITTLE BY LITTLE

BY LITTLE AND STILL KEEP THE

PARTY GOING.

WHILE THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO

DO ABOUT THE ECONOMY, TEA

PARTY MEMBERS WENT TO

WASHINGTON TO PROTEST.

GUESS WHAT?

THE I.R.S.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

AFTER BEING TARGETED BY THE

I.R.S., TEA PARTY GROUPS

RALLIED ON CAPITOL HILL

SAYING IT IS TIME FOR

AMERICANS TO TARGET THE TAX

AGENCY.

THOUSANDS CAME OUT FOR AN

EVENT THEY CALL "AUDIT THE

I.R.S.."

PAUL STRAND HAS THAT STORY.

CAPITOL HILL FLOODED WITH

TEA PARTY GROUPS.

IT WOULDN'T MATTER IF IT

WAS JUST CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS.

EVERYBODY SHOULD BE

CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

BECAUSE IT TAKES AWAY OUR

LIBERTIES, NO MATTER WHO YOU

ARE.

EVEN THOUGH LIBERALS NEED

TO START STANDING UP BECAUSE

THEY'VE TAKEN AWAY OUR

RIGHTS ONE AFTER ANOTHER.

WHENEVER ANY ONE OF US IS

TARGETED, WE SHOULD ALL BE

CONCERNED.

THIRD QUARTER IS SURPASS

LEFT AND RIGHT.

Reporter: BECKY

GARRISON BECAME A NEW TEA

PARTY HERO WHEN SHE WENT

BEFORE CONGRESS A FEW DAYS

AGO TO SAY WASHINGTON

POLITICIANS AREN'T IN CHARGE

OF THIS COUNTRY.

THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN OUR

PLACE.

THEY ACT LIA LIKE LORDS

OVER US.

THEY NEED TO GET THAT BACK

IN BALANCE.

Reporter: GARY SAYS THE

I.R.S. TIED HIS GROUP UP IN

KNOTS BEFORE THE ELECTION.

WE WERE PRODUCING 500

PAGES OF DOCUMENTS, MESSING

AROUNDTHE I.R.S., INSTEAD OF

BEING OUT THERE EDUCATION,

WHICH IS WHAT OUR MISSION

IS.

THE CONSTITUTION IS

DESIGNED TO CONSTRAIN THE

GOVERNMENT.

THIS KNOWLEDGE IN THE HANDS

OF FREE PEOPLE IS A THREAT

TO THOSE WHO LUST FOR POWER

AND AUTHORITY.

I FEEL WHAT THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS DONE IS

ESSENTIALLY MCCARTHYISM OF

THE LEFT.

NOT ONLY THAT, IT IS

COMBINED WITH THE MOB

POLITICS OF CHICAGO.

AND IF THIS BROAD FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT CAN TRACK EVERY

PHONE CALL, IF THEY CAN

TRACK EVERY INTERNET

ACTIVITY, IF THEY CAN TRACK

YOUR CREDIT CARD, IF THEY

CAN TRACK YOUR CELL PHONE,

AND THE I.R.S. CAN HAVE A

PACKAGE TO FOCUS THEIR

ENFORCEMENT ON THE ENEMIES

OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES, THIS BIG

BROTHER HAS GOTTEN A LOT

CREEPIER THAN GEORGE ORWELL

THOUGHT IT WOULD EVER GET.

Reporter: THE BIG

MESSAGE FROM THESE

PROTESTORS MEAN THIS TIME

AROUND CONSERVATIVE AND

CHRISTIAN GROUPS MIGHT HAVE

BEEN TARGETED, BUT ALL

AMERICANS HAVE TO BE ON

GUARD ABOUT THEIR LIBERTIES

BECAUSE WE ALL RISE AND FALL

TOGETHER.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL.

Reporter: THE F.B.I.

SAYS IT IS USING AERIAL

DRONES HERE IN THE U.S.

THE BUREAU SAYS IT IS USING

A FULL OF THEM AND ONLY ON

STATIONARY TARGETS.

ROBERT MUELLER TOLD CONGRESS

THAT THE GROWING USE OF

DOMESTIC DRONES DRAWS A

DEBATE HOW AND WHEN THEY

SHOULD BE USED.

BUT THE THREAT TO PRIVATE

SEE SHOULD BE ADDRESSED AS

DRONES BECOME, QUOTE,"OMNI

PRESENT."

HE ADDED THE TOPIC IS WORTHY

OF DEBATE, AND PERHAPS EVEN

LEGISLATION IN THE FUTURE.

SOME MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

WANT MORE INFORMATION ON HOW

THE F.B.I. AND OTHER

AGENCIES USE DRONES.

FORMER INVESTIGATORS SAY THE

CAUSE OF THE CRASH OF TWA

FLIGHT 800 WAS.

IN A NEW DOCUMENTARY, THEY

SAY THE GOVERNMENT FALSIFIED

THE FINAL REPORT.

THE PLANE EXPLODED OVER LONG

ISLAND IN 1996, KILLING 230

PEOPLE.

A FOUR-YEAR LONG

INVESTIGATION CONCLUDED THAT

THE CAUSE OF THE BLAST WAS

AN EXPLODING FUEL TANK.

BUT NOW SIX RETIRED

INVESTIGATORS SAY FEDERAL

AUTHORITIES SYSTEMATICALLY

UNDERMINED THEIR WORK ON THE

CASE.

THE GENERAL CONSENSUS IS

IT WAS EITHER A TERRORIST

ATTACK THAT THEY WANTED TO

IGNORE, OR AN ACCIDENT AS A

RESULT OF MILITARY

OPERATIONS THAT WENT WRONG,

AND THEY DIDN'T WANT TO

ACKNOWLEDGE RESPONSIBILITY

FOR IT.

Reporter: THE

INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY HAVE

RADAR AND FORENSIC EVIDENCE

TO PROVE THE EXPLOSION CAME

FROM OUTSIDE THE AIRPLANE.

THEY WANT THE CASE TO BE

REOPENED, BUT SOME FORMER

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SAY

THERE IS NO QUESTION THE

EXPLOSION WAS AN ACCIDENT.

WELL, AMERICANS HAVE VERY

LITTLE TRUST IN THE NEWS

MEDIA.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO A NEW

GALLUP POLL.

ONLY 23% EXPRESS CONFIDENCE

IN NEWSPAPERS AND TELEVISION

NEWS.

CONSERVATIVES HAVE EVEN LESS

TRUST IN THE NEWS MEDIA THAN

MODERATES OR LIBERALS.

THE PERCENTAGE OF AMERICANS

WHO SHOW CONFIDENCE IN

GENERALLNEWSPAPERS

GENERALLY IS TRENDING DOWN.

NASA WANTS YOUR HELP TO SAVE

EARTH FROM A DEADLY AS

DESTROYED.

A ASTEROIDS.

IT IS ASKING SCIENTISTS AND

ORDINARY FOLKS TO COME UP

WITH IDEAS TO FIND THE SPACE

ROCKS AND PREVENT THEM FROM

HITTING EARTH.

IF HAVE ANY THOUGHTS, YOU

CAN SEND YOUR E-MAILS TO

NASA, BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO DO

IT FAST.

PAT, THIS PROGRAM HAS YOUR

NAME WRITTEN ALL OVER IT.

Pat: I WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "THE END OF THE AGE,"

THAT TALKED ABOUT THIS

FULFILLS BIBLICAL PROPHECY.

MY BOOK HAD AN ASTEROID THAT

WAS ONE-TENTH OF A CLLTD,

AN KILOMETRES.

AND SOME OF THESE ARE MUCH

BIGGER.

I HAD MY DROPPING IN NEAR

SANTA ALINA.

I GAVE A CAN'T OF IT TO

STEVEN SPIELBERG, AND HE HAD

HIS DROPPING OFF THE COAST

OF VIRGINIA BEACH.

THANKS, STEVEN.

Wendy: IT WAS A GREAT

BOOK.

I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.

Pat: MY STAFF GAVE ME A

TELESCOPE, AND I'VE GOT A

PLACE ON A MOUNTAIN UP NEAR

WEST VIRGINIA, AND I GOT

THAT TELESCOPE.

I CAN SEE THE MOON.

IT'S A BIG MOON.

I CAN ALSO FOCUS IT ON

GOLFER SAM SNEAD'S HOUSE.

I CAN'T SEE MUCH ELSE, BUT

IT IS A GREAT BIG

TELESCOPE.

Wendy: YOU CAN'T SEE

ANY ASTEROIDS?

Pat: THEY WANT US TO

LOOK FOR ASTEROIDS, AND I

DON'T KNOW WHAT TO LOOK

FOR.

Wendy: I DON'T THINK

THEY SHOULD BE ASKING US TO

LOOK FOR ASTEROIDS, BUT --

Pat: WELL, THERE MIGHT

BE SOME.

Wendy: COMING UP, IT IS

BEING CALLED THE CANCER

KILLER, AND IT IS SAVING

LIVES WITH VIRTUALLY NO SIDE

EFFECTS.

THE DOCTORS GAVE ME THREE

MONTHS TO LIVE.

THREE DIFFERENT DOCTORS TOLD

ME THAT SAME THING.

TO THIS DAY, THERE IS NO

TRACE OF IT.

Wendy: LEARN MORE ABOUT

THIS REVOLUTIONARY NEW

TREATMENT, NEXT.

Pat: WHEN WE FIRST

AIRED THIS STORY, IT CAUSED

A LOT OF BUZZ IN THE MEDICAL

COMMUNITY, AND IT STILL

SHOULD DO THAT.

IMAGINE A FREE CANCER

TREATMENT.

WITH VIRTUALLY NO SIDE

EFFECTS.

WELL, IT'S REAL AND IT SHOWS

AMAZING PROMISE.

ITS SUPPORTERS SAY SUGAR IS

THE FOOD FOR CANCER.

NOT TO CURE IT, BUT TO FEED

IT.

IF YOU CUT OUT THE CARBS,

YOU MIGHT KILL OFF YOUR

CANCER.

OUR REPORTER LORI JOHNSON

HAS THIS WONDERFUL STORY.

Reporter: DR. FRED

HATFIELD IS AN IMPRESSIVE

GUY.

HE IS A POWER-LIFTING

CHAMPION, AUTHOR,

MILLIONAIRE BUSINESSMAN WITH

A BEAUTIFUL WIFE.

BUT HE'LL TELL YOU HIS

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT IS

KILLING HIS CANCER JUST IN

THE KNICK OF TIME.

THE DOCTOR GAVE ME THREE

MONTHS TO LIVE BECAUSE OF

THE WIDESPREAD METATASTIC

CANCER IN MY SKELETAL

STRUCTURE.

THREE MONTHS.

THREE DIFFERENT DOCTORS TOLD

ME THE SAME THING.

IT IS A HORRIBLE,

HORRIBLE FEELING TO HAVE

SOMEONE TELL YOU THE PERSON

YOU LOVE ONLY HAS THREEpp

MONTHS TO LIVE AND YOU'REpp

NOT GOING TO BE WITH HIMú

ANYMORE.

Reporter: WHILE FRED

WAS PREPARING TO DIE, HE

HEARD ABOUT A ANTI-CANCER

DIET.

WITH NOTHING TO LOSE, HE

GAVE IT A TRY AND WAS

SHOCKED WHEN IT ACTUALLY

WORKED.

AND THE CANCER WAS GONE

COMPLETELY.

TO THIS DAY, THERE IS NO

TRACE OF IT, AND IT HAS BEEN

OVER A YEAR.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH IT

WASN'T EASY, FRED STOPPED

EATING CARBOHYDRATES,

BECAUSE THEY TURN INTO

GLUCOSE INSIDE YOUR BODY.

CANCER CELLS LOVE GLUCOSE

AND NEED IT SO BADLY, THAT

IF YOU STOP GIVING IT TO

THEM, THEY DIE.

IT ABSOLUTELY AMAZES ME

THAT MEDICAL SCIENCE IS JUST

NOW FINDING THIS OUT.

Reporter: FRED'S

RECOVERY WAS NOT A SURPRISE

TO DR. DOMINIC DAGASTINO.

HIS TEAM OF SCIENTISTS AT

THE UNIVERSITIES OF SOUTH

FLORIDA STUDY METABOLIC

THERAPY.

WHEN THEY REMOVED

CARBOHYDRATES FROM THE DIETS

OF LAB MICE, THE MICE

SURVIVED HIGHLY AGGRESSIVE

METATASTIC CANCER, EVEN

BETTER THAN WHEN THEY WERE

TREATED WITH CHEMOTHERAPY.

YOU HAVE DRAMATICALLY

INCREASED SURVIVAL WITH

METABOLIC THERAPY.

WE THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO

GET THIS INFORMATION OUT.

Reporter: IT IS NOT

JUST LAB MICE.

HE HAS ALSO SEEN SIMILAR

SUCCESS IN PEOPLE, LOTS OF

THEM.

I'VE BEEN IN

CORRESPONDENCE WITH A NUMBER

OF PEOPLE, PROBABLY AT LEAST

A DOZEN PEOPLE.

AND OVER THE LAST YEAR AND A

HALF TO TWO YEARS.

AND ALL OF THEM ARE STILL

ALIVE.

SO DESPITE THE ODDS.

SO THIS IS VERY

ENCOURAGING.

Reporter: ALL CELLS,

INCLUDING CANCER CELLS, ARE

FUELED BY GLUCOSE.

BUT IF YOU DEPRIVE THEM OF

GLUCOSE, THEY SWITCH TO THE

ALTERNATE FUEL, KETONE

BODIES.

ALL ACCEPT CANCER CRELINGS.

CELLS.

A DEFECT PREVENTS THEM FROM

MAKING THE SWITCH, AND SO

THEREFORE CANCER CELLS CAN

SURVIVE ONLY ON GLUCOSE.

YOUR NORMAL CELLS HAVE

THE METABOLIC ABILITY TO

ADAPT.

BUT CANCER CELLS LACK THIS

METABOLIC ABILITY.

Reporter: PEOPLE LIKE

FRED, WHO DEPRIVE THEIR

CELLS OF GLUCOSE, AND FUEL

THEM WITH KETONE BODIES, EAT

WHAT IS KNOWN AS A KEY

KETOGENIC DIET.

IT IS CLEAN EATING.

VERY CLEAN EATING.

NONE OF THE SUGARS, THE

SALTS, THE TRASH FOOD.

Reporter: NATURAL

PROTEINS ARE IN THEIR

ORIGINAL FORM, BUT PROCESSED

MEATS, LIKE COLD CUTS AND

HOTDOGS ARE OFF LIMITS

BECAUSE OFTEN CARBOHYDRATES

HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THEM.

NATURAL FATS ARE IN THEIR

ORIGINAL FORM LIKE NUTS,

AVOCADO, AND COCONUT OIL.

BUT STAY AWAY FROM

TRANS-FATS, WHICH ARE

SHORTENING AND MANMADE.

SOME THINK ALL OF THIS FAT

IS BAD FOR THEIR HEART, BUT

MORE DOCTORS ARE SAY NATURAL

FAT IS ACTUALLY GOOD FOR

YOU.

EVEN NATURAL SATURATED FAT,

LIKE COCONUT OIL AND

BUTTER.

DOCTORS LIKE CARDIOLOGIST

STEPHEN SINATRA.

IS CHOLESTEROL THE MAJOR

CAUSE OF HEART DISEASE?

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

REAL CAUSE OF HEART DISEASE

IS INFLAMMATION, WHICH COMES

FROM EATING TOO MANY

CARBOHYDRATES.

WE NEED TO COACH OUR

PATIENTS AND EMPOWER THEM

ABOUT THE DANGERS OF SUGAR.

UNFORTUNATELY, THEY'RE NOT

HEARING THAT.

THEY'RE HEARING THE

CONVERSE, THE DANGERS OF

FAT.

FAT IS HEALTHY FOR YOU, AS

LONG AS YOU AVOID

TRANS-FATS.

Reporter: SO BY CUTTING

BACK ON CARBOHYDRATES AND

EATING NATURAL FATS AND

PROTEINS, YOU COULD IMPROVE

YOUR HEART HEALTH AND EVEN

WIPE OUT CANCER.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: DID YOU EVER TRY

COCONUT OIL?

I JUST HAD SOME THIS

MORNING IN MY SMOOTHIE.

I DO A GREEN SMOOTHIE AND I

PUT THE COCONUT OIL IN THERE

AND FLAXSEED OIL.

IT IS FASCINATING THAT THE

CANCER CELLS LITERALLY DIE

IF YOU DON'T FEED THEM.

Pat: YOU KNOW, CHEMO IS

A CELL KILLER.

IT KILLS CELLS.

IT KILLS HEALTHY CELLS AND

IT KILLS CANCER CELLS.

SO THEY GIVE THEM HIGH DOSES

OF CHEMO.

HOPEFULLY YOU'VE KILLED THE

CANCER, AND YOUR OTHERS WILL

GROW BACK.

BUT MANY PEOPLE LOSE THEIR

WILL TO LIVE AFTER THEY GET

SO WEAKENED FROM TAKING

CHEMOTHERAPY, THAT THEY

CAN'T FIGHT OFF THE CANCER.

Wendy: ISN'T IT AMAZING

THAT GOOD MADE IT THAT FOOD

CAN BE BE OUR MEDICINE OR

OUR POISON.

AND WE CHOOSE EVERY DAY WHAT

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE.

SOME DAYS I CHOOSE POISON.

Pat: PLEASE DON'T

CHOOSE IT TOO OFTEN.

BUT PEOPLE CHOOSE IT EVERY

DAY.

YOU READ THE LABEL ON THE

AVERAGE CEREAL BOX.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

IT STARTS OFF WITH SUGAR.

AND THEN YOU'VE GOT HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, AND

THEN YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THESE

OTHER THINGS, AND LOADED

WITH CARBS.

Wendy: ARE YOU A BIG

BREAD PERSON?

Pat: NO.

Wendy: I'M NOT, EITHER,

UNLESS IT IS HOME MADE.

I FEEL BETTER WHEN I'M NOT

EATING A LOT OF CARBS.

YOU JUST FEEL WEIGHED DOWN

AND HEAVY.

IT MAKES SENSE, IF WE WOULD

JUST DO IT.

Pat: I'M LIKE THE

PRIMITIVES.

I'M EATING BERRIES AND

NUTS.

Wendy: THE CAVEMAN

DIET.

Pat: I HAVE WALNUTS AND

ALMONDS AND PECANS AND I

HAVE OATMEAL AND OAT BRAN

AND A BUNCH OF BERRIES.

Wendy: YOU'RE GETTING

THE GOOD FATS AND

ANTIOXIDANTS, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO LIVE TO BE 150.

Pat: BLESS YOUR HEART.

I THOUGHT I WOULD WRAP IT UP

AT 110.

I DON'T WANT TO OVERDO IT.

I DON'T WANT TO EMBARRASS

JOSHUA.

Wendy: WE JUST HEARD

STORIES OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

BEATING CANCER.

UP NEXT, WE'LL MEET A MAN

WHO SURVIVED A BRAIN TUMOR

AFTER BEING GIVEN JUST TWO

TO THREE YEARS TO LIVE.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

COMING UP, IT IS MAN

VERSUS WILD.

IT REQUIRES SOMETHING

MORE THAN JUST THE

PHYSICAL.

BEAR GRILLS OPENS UP

ABOUT HIS MUD, SWEAT, AND

TEARS.

LATER "THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S YOUR ADVENTURE

RIGHT THERE IN A NUTSHELL.

.

Pat: YOU KNOW, 38 IS

FAIRLY YOUNG.

SOMEBODY

IS 38, THEY'RE

YOUNG.

THEY

HAVE A WHOLE FUTURE

AHEAD OF THEM.

AND MATT CHANDLER AT 38

SEEMED TO HAVE IT ALL.

HE HAD A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.

HE HAD

A GROWING CHURCH.

HE HAD ONE OF THE MOST

POPULAR PODCASTS ON

ON iTUNES.

MATT HAD A GREAT LIFE UNTIL

THE DAY HE NEARLY LOST IT

ALL.

NOBODY -- NOBODY RUNS 80

YEARS WITHOUT SOMEBODY THEY

LOVE DYING, WITHOUT GETTING

SICK, WITHOUT SERIOUS

TRIALS.

NO ONE MAKES IT CLEAN

THROUGH LIFE IN A FALLEN

WORLD.

THANKSGIVING MORNING I

WAS GETTING READY TO -- I

ACTUALLY FELT REALLY GREAT.

I WAS ORGANIZED, I WOKE UP

BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE.

I CRACKED OPEN THE CINNAMON

ROLL THING AND PUT THEM IN

THE OVEN.

KIND OF GOING ABOUT MY

MORNING IN THE KITCHEN

GETTING READY.

I GOT UP, POURED MYSELF A

CUP OF COFFEE AND ASKED HER

HOW I COULD HELP, AND SHE

ASKED ME TO FEED NORA.

I FED HER AND BURPED HER AND

WALKED OVER AND PUT HER IN A

JOHNNIE JUMP UP, AND I

TURNED TO GO BACK TO MY

CHAIR --

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

HEARD THIS CRASH, AND I'M

WAITING TO HEAR MATT SAY,

IT'S OKAY, BABE, I'VE GOT

IT.

AND I DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING.

AND THE NEXT THING I HEAR IS

AUDREY, OUR THEN 6-YEAR-OLD,

SAY DAD?

AND THAT WAS ODD BECAUSE I

DIDN'T HEAR MATT'S VOICE.

AND I WALK IN, AND MATT IS

ON THE GROUND, CLOSE TO THE

HEARTH OF THE FIREPLACE,

HAVING A GRANDMAL SEIZURE.

WE WERE TOLD AT THE

HOSPITAL, WHEN I STARTED

COMING TO, THEY HAD ALREADY

DONE A C.T. SCAN, AND THEY

SAW A SHADOW, AND THEY

WANTED TO DO AN M.R.I.

THEY TOOK HIM BACK FOR

TESTS AND THEY DID FIND A

TUMOR.

AND THE E.R. DOCTOR

RECOMMENDED WE SEE A

NEUROSURGEON AS SOON AS WE

COULD.

LIFE FOR ME, UP UNTIL

THAT POINT, HAD JUST ALWAYS

BEEN BEST-CASE SCENARIO.

I THOUGHT, OKAY, WE'LL GO

SEE THE NEUROSURGEON AND

THEY'LL GIVE ME THE RIGHT

MEDS AND WE'LL KEEP TRUCKING

ALONG.

WHEN WE GOT INTO HIS

OFFICE AND HE STARTS SHOWING

US THE FILM, IT IS EVIDENT

IT IS LARGE.

HE VERY BLUNTLY SAID,

THIS LOOKS REALLY BAD.

WE'VE GOT TO GO IN PRETTY

QUICK.

IN FACT, I MADE ROOM FOR YOU

ON FRIDAY.

WE'RE GOING TO DO A

CRANIOTOMY ON FRIDAY AND WE

NOT ONLY HAVE TO GET THIS,

BUT AROUND IT.

WHEN FRIDAY MORNING CAME,

I GOT TO PRAY WITH MATT AND

SING OVER HIM.

THERE WAS THIS QUESTION OF

WHO WILL HE BE WHEN HE COMES

OUT?

IT WAS AN EIGHT AND A

HALF HOUR CRANIOTOMY.

THE DIAGNOSIS WE GOT FROM

THE DOCTORS WAS ANAPLASTIC,

WHICH MEANS MALIGNANT,

OLIODENDRONE, WHICH A

CANCER.

STATISTICS SAY I HAVE TWO OR

THREE YEARS OF LIFE.

THE DAYS AFTER THAT, HE

DIGRESSED.

MY BIG FEAR WAS THAT YOU

JUST DON'T DIE PRETTY FROM

THIS ONE.

AND YOU LOSE PARTS OF YOUR

MIND.

YOU STOP BEING YOU.

AND SO MY GREAT FEAR WAS

THAT MY KIDS WOULD WATCH ME

WASTE AWAY AND GROW BITTER

TOWARDS THE GOD I LOVE SO

DEEPLY AND DESPERATELY, AND

IT WOULD UNNERVE ME.

SO TO SEE THEM WAS -- IT

CREATED A SOUL IN ME, AND I

WOULD PUT ON WORSHIP MUSIC

AND MY HEADPHONES AND I WAS

JUST KIND OF WITHDRAWN.

I WAS JUST TRYING TO COPE.

I GAVE HIM THE SPACE, BUT

THEN THERE WAS A POINT WHERE

I FELT LIKE HE WAS AT A

PLACE THAT HE COULD ENTER IN

BACK WITH US.

I TRIED TO GRACIOUSLY

APPROACH HIM AND SAY, BABE,

I KNOW THIS IS A LOT TO DEAL

WITH.

BUT YOU'RE HERE WITH US NOW,

AND WE NEED YOU TO BE

PRESENT.

BECAUSE YOU'RE HERE.

YOU'RE NOT GONE.

PUNISHES

SO SHE WAS THE ONE WHO

SAID, HEY, LET'S DO THIS.

AND LET'S MAKE JESUS IN IT,

AND THAT'S KIND OF WHAT WE

DID.

I NEVER FELT FRAGILE.

I'M 6' 5," 200 POUNDS.

ALWAYS BEEN STRONG, ALWAYS

BEEN QUICK, ABLE TO KNOCK

THINGS OUT.

WHEN THEY STARTED THAT FIRST

FULL DOSE ROUND OF THE

CHEMO, I BECAME VERY

DEPRESSED AND FELT LIKE MY

INSIDES WERE ROTTING OUT.

FOR THE FIRST TIME ON A

CONSISTENT BASIS, I HAD

ABOUT EIGHT DAYS A MONTH.

I WAS JUST DONE.

YOU START TO REALLY SEE

WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT AND

WHAT'S NOT IMPORTANT.

AND HOW WHEN ALL IS SAID AND

DONE, IT IS ME AND THE

LORD.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

IT IS ME AND GOD.

AND THAT IDEA THAT EVEN WHEN

I WAS WALKING THROUGH IT IS

FOR MY GOOD AND HIS GLORY,

AND TRYING TO GET MY HEAD

AROUND THIS BEING FOR MY

GOOD, AS AWFUL AS IT WAS.

BUT THEN I WOULD START TO

SEE IT.

AND IN THOSE MOMENTS WHERE

I'M, LIKE, I'M ALL IN HERE.

THE EMPATHY THAT WAS CREATED

FOR OTHERS.

BEING ABLE TO MOURN WITH

OTHERS WHO MOURN.

ALL OF THAT CAME OUT OF THIS

SEASON.

DURING THAT SEASON, WHAT

I WAS ASKING THE LORD WAS

THAT HE WOULD JUST USE OUR

STORY TO GLORIFY HIM AND TO

MAKE MUCH OF IM, AND THAT

OTHER PEOPLE WOULD FIND

COMFORT IN IT.

WE ARE PAST THREE YEARS,

COMING UP ON FOUR YEARS, AND

THERE HAS BEEN NO

RECURRENCE, AND ALL OF MY

SCANS HAVE COME BACK

PERFECTLY CLEAR.

I'VE BEEN OFF CHEMO AND

EVERYTHING FOR OVER A YEAR

NOW.

TO HAVE MATT LONGER, AND

TO HAVE CLEAN SCANS, EACH

SCAN I AM GRATEFUL.

EACH DAY THAT WE HAVE WITH

OUR KIDS AS A FAMILY, I'M SO

MUCH MORE GRATEFUL.

THE SINGLE GREATEST THING

I LEARNED THROUGH IT ALL IS

I REALLY BELIEVE THIS.

I REALLY HAVE GOT ALL OF MY

CHIPS IN.

THE THOUGHT OF STANDING IN

FRONT OF GOD AT EARLY 30s

WITH THREE SMALL CHILDREN AT

HOME AND A BEAUTIFUL WIFE

WHO NOW IS HUSBANDLESS, I

WAS ABLE TO LAY THAT DOWN

AND SAY, HEY, I'M YOURS.

YOU'RE WHAT I WANT.

YOU'RE MY TREASURE.

YOU'RE WHAT I'M AFTER.

AND THE CRAZY THING IS

THROUGH ALL THE EPIPHANY, I

REALLY, REALLY BELIEVE IT.

Pat: WHAT A STORY.

WHAT A TESTIMONY.

WHAT A TRIUMPH OF FAITH.

SURE, DOCTORS WORKED ON HIM,

BUT THE CHEMO WASN'T GOING

TO DO IT.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE A POSITIVE

PROGNOSIS.

BUT GOD SAYS I HAVE A

DIFFERENT PLAN.

YOU KNOW THAT SONG, WHO'S

REPORT DO YOU BELIEVE?

I BELIEVE THE REPORT OF THE

LORD.

MATT SAID I BELIEVE THE

REPORT OF THE LORD.

Wendy: AMAZING

TESTIMONY.

Pat: YOU HAVE A STORY?

Wendy: BERTHA OF WEST

PALM BEACH FLORIDA IS

SUFFERED FROM A HERNIA, AND

IT GOT SO BAD HER DOCTOR

WANTED TO PERFORM SURGERY.

BUT AS A NURSE, SHE KNEW THE

SURGERY COULD CAUSE MORE

PROBLEMS.

SO SHE REFUSED THE SURGERY.

ONE DAY WHILE SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

PAT, YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID SOMEBODY HAS A

HERNIA, AND THE LORD IS

HEALING THAT RIGHT NOW.

BERTHA CLAIMED THE WORD, AND

ALL OF THE PAIN WENT AWAY,

AND SHE IS PRAISING GOD.

Pat: THIS IS KNOXVILLE,

TENNESSEE.

TERESA FELL OUT OF AN ATTIC,

AND SHE HAD SEVERE PAIN IN

HER HIPS, ALL THE WAY TO HER

TOES.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND SHE SAW

THE STORY OF A WOMAN WHO HAD

FALLEN.

TERESA SAW HER GET HEALED.

AND FELT THE LORD COULD DO

THE SAME THING FOR HER.

SHE FELT A TINGLING ALL OVER

HER BODY AND SHE WAS

HEALED.

GOD IS THE GOD WHO CREATED

EVERYTHING.

IF HE MADE IT, HE SURE CAN

FIX IT.

SO WE'RE GOING TO ASK GOD,

AND WE'RE GOING TO AGREE

TOGETHER.

WENDY AND I WILL AGREE WITH

YOU.

AND THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE.

Wendy: WE ARE FEARFULLY

AND WONDERFULLY MADE.

Pat: AMEN.

I JOIN HANDS WITH MY SISTER

RIGHT NOW, AND WE ARE GOING

TO JOIN HANDS, AND IN THE

NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF

NAZARETH, GOD IS HEALING A

BOWEL OBSTRUCTION RIGHT

NOW.

IT HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR

YOU, AND RIGHT NOW GOD IS

TAKING CARE OF IT.

IT IS DONE IN JESUS' NAME.

THANK YOU, LORD.

SOMEBODY HAS LEUKEMIA, AND

THE LORD IS HEALING YOU.

YOU SAY IT HASN'T BEEN

POSSIBLE, BUT IT IS

POSSIBLE.

GOD IS GOING TO SAY IT IS

POSSIBLE.

IT IS DONE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

WENDY, WHAT IS GOD SHOWING

YOU?

Wendy: I BELIEVE THERE

ARE A LOT MORE PEOPLE OUT

THERE THAT HAVE BRAIN

TUMORS.

AND THEY'VE BEEN WATCHING

THIS SHOW, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, LORD, DO IT FOR ME.

AND, LORD, YOU ARE WILLING.

JESUS, YOU HEALED EVERYONE

THAT CAME TO YOU IN THE

BIBLE.

SO RIGHT NOW, LORD, YOU ARE

HEALING BRAIN TUMORS ALL

OVER THIS COUNTRY IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: THERE ARE SEVERAL

OTHERS WITH LEUKEMIA.

YOU'VE HAD A DIAGNOSIS WITH

LEUKEMIA.

AND YOU SAY THERE IS NO

HEALING AND THERE IS NO

CURE, AND I'M GOING TO DIE.

NO, YOU'RE NOT.

PROCLAIM LIFE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, AND SPEAK TO THAT

LEUKEMIA.

YOU ARE HEALED IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

AND MIGRAINE HEADACHES, A

SEVERE MIGRAINE HAS TAKEN A

WOMAN -- I BELIEVE HER NAME

IS ELOUISE, AND GOD HAS JUST

HEALED YOU.

IT WILL BE LIKE A BOLT OF

ELECTRICITY GOING THROUGH

YOUR BRAIN.

IN JESUS' NAME YOU'RE

HEALED.

THANK YOU, LORD.

LORD, FOR ALL IN THIS

AUDIENCE WHO HAVE NEEDS,

WHATEVER THEY ARE, MEET

THOSE NEEDS AND BLESS THEM

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU,

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

PRAISE THE LORD.

IF YOU WANT FURTHER PRAYER,

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

THE TELEPHONE IS AVAILABLE.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE CALL.

JUST CALL IN AND WE'RE HERE

FOR YOU.

GIVE US A REPORT OF WHAT GOD

HAS DONE IN YOUR LIFE.

WE'D LOVE TO HEAR IT.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD, THE

MAN WHO HAS MADE A LIVING

OUT OF GETTING LOST.

THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF

BAD SWAMPS AND MANGO

JUNGLES, BUT I LOVE THE FACT

THAT THERE IS SUCH A STRONG

LINK BETWEEN SURVIVAL AND

LIFE.

Wendy: MAN VERSES

WILDLIFE BEAR GRILLS.

I LOVE THIS GUY.

HE SHARES WHY YOU DON'T HAVE

TO CLIMB MT. EVEREST TO HAVE

AN ADVENTURE, NEXT.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

THE U.K.'S VERSION OF THE

GIRL SCOUTS, KNOWN AS GIRL

GUIDES, ARE REMOVING GOD

FROM THEIR PLEDGE.

THE LONG ESTABLISHED BRITISH

SCOUTING ORGANIZATION TOOK

OUT A REFERENCE TO LOVING

GOD.

LEADERS, INSTEAD, PUT IN A

CALL TO, QUOTE,"BE TRUE TO

MYSELF AND DEVELOP MY

BELIEFS."

THE NEW PLEDGE WAS ANNOUNCED

WEDNESDAY.

THE ORGANIZATION SAYS AROUND

44,000 PEOPLE WEIGHED IN ON

THE DECISION TO CHANGE THE

PLEDGE.

THE CHIEF GUIDE SAYS SHE

HOPES THE CHANGE WILL

ENCOURAGE MORE GIRLS TO

JOIN.

THE REFERENCE TO GOD HAS

BEEN A PART OF THE PLEDGE

SINCE THE FOUNDING OF THE

GIRL GUIDES IN 1910.

AN IRANIAN COURT CONVICTED A

GROUP OF CHRISTIANS FOR

BEING PART OF A HOUSE

CHURCH.

THE GROUP INCLUDED FOUR MEN,

A WOMAN, AND HER TEENAGED

SON.

AMONG THE OTHER CHARGES,

THEY FACE PROPAGANDA AGAINST

THE IRANIAN REGIME, HAVE

CONTACT WITH FOREIGN

MINISTERS, AND SPREADING

CHRISTIANITY.

ACCORDING TO THE HOBBIT

NEWS, THE MEN WERE SENTENCED

TO 44 MONTHS IN PRISON.

THE WOMAN AND HER SON EACH

RECEIVED A SUSPENDED

TWO-YEAR PRISON SENTENCE.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIDER AFTERIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

ON THE SHOW "MAN VERSES

WILD," BEAR GRILLS HAS DONE

PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING FROM,

EATING BUGS TO SLEEPING

INSIDE A CAMEL.

BUT AS HE TOLD CHUCK HOLTON,

THERE IS STILL A SIDE OF HIM

THAT HIS FANS HAVEN'T SEEN.

THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF

BAD SWAMPS AND MANGO JUNGLES

AND STUFF OVER THE YEARS.

I LOVE THE FACT THERE IS

SUCH A STRONG LINK BETWEEN

SURVIVAL AND LIFE.

Reporter: BEAR GRILLS

IS KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD AS

AN OUTDOOR ADVENTURER,

SURVIVALIST, AND THE STAR OF

"MAN VERSUS WILD" BEFORE

BECOMING A CELEBRITY, HE

SPENT THREE YEARS WITH THE

ELITE SPECIAL SERVICE, OR

S.A.S., BUT MOST PEOPLE

AREN'T AWARE OF HIS DEEP

LOVE FOR GOD.

I ALWAYS HAD A NATURAL

FAITH AS A KID.

I KIND OF KNEW GOD EXISTED.

AND IT WASN'T RELIGIOUS.

AND THEN I WENT TO SCHOOL,

AND FOR ME IT BECAME MUCH

MORE RELIGIOUS.

AND IT WAS ALL ABOUT CHURCH

GOING, AND PEOPLE TELLING

YOU NOT TO SMOKE BEHIND THE

BIKE SHED WHEN YOU'RE AGE

12.

Reporter: IN THE BOOK,

YOU SAID I WASN'T REALLY

INTERESTED IN THE SCHOOL.

I KIND OF DITCHED MY

FAITH.

Reporter: BEAR GREW UP

ON THE ISLE OF WHITE IN

ENGLAND.

HE HAS ALWAYS HAD A LOT OF

FRIENDS.

IN HIS NEWLY RELEASED

AUTOBIOGRAPHY "BLOOD,

SWEATER, AND TEARS," HE

EXPLAINS HOW THE DEATH OF A

CLOSE FRIEND BROUGHT HIM

BACK.

AT THE AGE OF 16, I LOST

MY GODFATHER, WHO WAS LIKE A

SECOND FATHER TO ME.

TOTALLY OUT OF THE BLUE.

IT WAS A REAL SHOCK TO ME.

I REMEMBER WANTING TO PRAY

BUT NOT KNOWING HOW TO.

I REMEMBER SITTING OUT IN

THE STREET AND SAYING A

PRAYER THAT SAID WILL YOU BE

THAT FRIEND TO ME THAT YOU

WERE WHEN I WAS, LIKE, 5 AND

6, AND IT FELT NATURAL.

AMEN.

THAT WAS ACTUALLY THE PRAYER

OF FINDING FAITH.

I THINK LIFE NOW IS A

CONTINUED JOURNEY OF NOT

LETTING TOO MUCH OF THE

RELIGIOUS STUFF CLOUD THE

HEART OF FAITH THAT IS VERY

SIMPLE.

IT IS ABOUT BEING LOVED.

IT IS ABOUT BEING FORGIVEN.

AND IT IS ABOUT FINDING

HOME.

THOSE ARE GREAT THINGS ALL

OF US NEED.

Reporter: BEAR'S FAITH

HAS GROWN ALONG WITH HIS

THIRST FOR ADVENTURE.

AT 23, HE BECAME ONE OF THE

YOUNGEST PEOPLE EVER TO

SCALE MT. EVEREST.

HE RELIED ON PRAYER AND

SCRIPTURE THROUGHOUT THE

POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS

CLIMB.

THAT'S WHAT I'VE ALWAYS

LOVED ABOUT CLIMBING HIGH

MOUNTAINS.

IT REQUIRES MORE JUST THE

PHYSICAL.

Reporter: IN READING

THE BOOK, YOU TALK ABOUT

YOUR FAITH AS YOUR SECRET

STRENGTH.

MY FAITH WAS MY SECRET

STRENGTH, KIND OF LIKE MY

BACKBONE.

Reporter: BEAR HAS HAD

MANY MORE ADVENTURES SINCE

EVEREST, AND HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD HAS

CARRIED HIM THROUGH THEM

ALL.

JESUS CHRIST WAS THE MOST

RADICAL GUY YOU COULD EVER

COME ACROSS.

HE WAS ALWAYS HANGING OUT

WITH THE PROSTITUTES AND TAX

COLLECTORS, AND HAVING

PARTIES.

I FOUND MYSELF DRAWN TO THAT

CHARACTER.

AND NOT THE STUFF WE BOX AS

RELIGION.

I GET ASKED BY PEOPLE

QUESTIONS, AND I'M, LIKE,

SOMETIMES I DON'T KNOW, BUT

I KNOW I'M LOVED.

IT CAN BE A LIFETIME

JOURNEY, TO WEIGH THROUGH

ALL OF THE STUFF TO GET TO

THAT.

Reporter: FROM THE

HOUSEWIFE OR THE ACCOUNTANT

WHO SAYS I CAN'T GO CLIMB

EVEREST OR TRACK THROUGH THE

JUNGLES, BUT I WANT TO HAVE

ADVENTURE.

HOW CAN I DO THAT?

EVERYONE WANTS ADVENTURE,

AND IT IS GREAT.

I HANG OUT THE WHOLE TIME

WITH KIDS AND YOUNG SCOUTS,

AND I NEVER MEET KIDS WHO

DON'T WANT ADVENTURE.

LIFE SAYS YOU HAVE TO BE

TOUGH AND WE'VE GOT TO GO

OUT OF OUR KID SELVES.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CLIMB

OUT OF IT.

FOR ME, THE ADVENTURE IS

ALWAYS ABOUT THE CONNECTION

AND THE BONDS YOU CREATE

WITH PEOPLE WHEN YOU'RE

THERE.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT ANYWHERE.

I TAKE MY KIDS ON LOADS OF

A ADVENTURES WHERE WE

TOTALLY GET THAT.

CLIMBING A LITTLE THING,

50-FOOT HIGH, AND I DO IT

WITH MY 8-YEAR-OLD, AND WE

SIT ON A LEDGE.

AND IT'S LIKE, THAT'S

ADVENTURE AND THE MAGIC OF

ADVENTURE RIGHT THERE IN A

NUTSHELL.

Reporter: BEAR AND HIS

WIFE, SHARA, ARE THE PARENTS

OF THREE ENERGETIC BOYS.

SO WHEN HE IS DONE DOING THE

DIRTY WORK OF SURVIVAL, HE'S

HOME.

IN THE FIELD, WHETHER HE IS

JUMPING FROM GREAT HEIGHTS

OR BURIED UP TO HIS NECK,

BEAR HAS LEARNED THE HARD

LESSONS OF FAITH.

MY FAITH THROUGH THAT

JOURNEY HAS BEEN AN

IMPORTANT THING.

I THINK NOW I LOOK BACK AND

I REALIZE IT TAKES A PROUD

MAN TO SAY HE NEVER NEEDS

ANY HELP.

I'M NOT THAT MAN NOW.

AND I LOVE THAT GREAT BIRTH

AND THE MESSAGE IT SENDS.

YOU'RE BLESSED WHEN YOU'RE

AT THE END OF YOUR ROPE.

WHEN THERE IS LESS OF YOU,

THERE IS MORE OF GOD.

Wendy: BEAR'S BOOK IS

CALLED "MUD, SWEAT, AND

TEARS."

AND IT'S GREAT.

FOR MORE OF BEAR'S

ADVENTURES, NEXT MONTH NBC

DEBUTS A NEW REALITY SERIES

CALLED "GET OUT ALIVE," AND

IT FEATURES HIM.

YOU CAN CHECK YOUR LOCAL

LISTINGS ON NBC.

Pat: WHAT A FASCINATING

GUY.

HE IS SUCH FUN.

THOSE SHOWS ARE SUCH FUN.

BUT WHAT THEY PUT THEMSELVES

THROUGH --

Wendy: HE HAS SO MUCH

JOY.

EVEN WHEN HE HAS BEEN

SUFFERING AND HAS GONE

WITHOUT FOOD FOR A DAY AND

BEEN IN THE JUNGLES --

Pat: I DON'T KNOW HOW

THEY DO IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE

A CAMERA CREW WITH HIM

FILMING THAT STUFF, BUT HE

IS OUT THERE EATING BUGS,

AND HE'S OUT THERE SLEPG

THERE SLEEPING IN MUD -- BUT

HE'S A GREAT GUY.

HE'S A SURVIVOR.

"MUD, SWEAT, AND TEARS."

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

QUESTIONS FROM OUR IN-BOX.

RUTH ANN SAYS, "I'VE BEEN A

CHRISTIAN MOST OF MY LIFE,

I'VE HEARD SOME CHRISTIANS

SAY YOU ONLY NEED TO PRAY A

PRAYER ONCE AND GOD WILL

ANSWER.

IS IT OKAY TO SAY THE SAME

PRAYER MORE THAN ONCE?"

GOOD QUESTION.

*

Wendy: ALL RIGHT, IT IS

TIME FOR "BRING IT ON."

WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT

QUESTIONS.

ARE YOU TROUBLESHOOTER?

Pat: LET'S GO FOR IT.

Wendy: RUTH ANN

SAYS, "I HAVE BEEN A

CHRISTIAN MOST OF MY LIFE.

I'VE BEEN WATCHING PREACHERS

ON TV TALKING ABOUT PRAY.

THEY SAY WHEN YOU PRAY A

PRAYER, GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS

AND YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO

PRAY THE SAME PRAYER OVER

AND OVER AGAIN.

IS IT OKAY TO PRAY THE SAME

PRAYER MORE THAN ONCE?"

Pat: THERE IS A

MISUNDERSTANDING.

IF I'M A KID AND I'M ASKING

MY FATHER IF I CAN USE THE

CAR, AND I SAY, DADDY, CAN I

HAVE THE CAR?

AND HE SAYS H'MMM.

AND I SAY, CAN I HAVE A

CAR?

AND HE SAYS H'MMM.

IF I ASK AGAIN, AND HE HANDS

ME THE KEYS, TAKE THE KEYS

AND DON'T ASK ANYMORE.

JESUS SAID, KEEP ON ASKING.

IT IS THE GREEK PRESENT

TENSE.

KEEP ON ASKING, AND YOU'LL

RECEIVE.

KEEP ON KNOCKING, AND THE

DOOR WILL BE OPENED.

KEEP ON KNOCKING.

KEEP ON ASKING.

KEEP ON SEEKING ME, AND

YOU'LL FIND.

PRESENT TENSE, KEEP ON

DOING.

HE TALKED ABOUT IMPOTUNATE

PRAYER, AND HE ASKED OVER

AND OVER AND OVER UNTIL HE

FINALLY GOT THE ANSWER.

THESE PEOPLE SAY YOU PRAY

THE PRAYER ONE TIME AND

DON'T ASK ANYMORE -- THAT'S

NOT BIBLICAL.

Wendy: IT'S LIKE THE

LAW OF PERSEVERANCE.

Pat: EXACTLY.

Wendy: "ON JUNE 18th,

THE QUESTION WAS ASKED WITH

REGARDS TO THE AFTER LIFE.

YOU ANSWERED, WHEN WE DIE,

OUR SPIRIT GOES TO BE WITH

THE LORD.

I'M CONFUSED BECAUSE I'VE

HEARD OTHERS SAY BOTH YOUR

SOUL AND SPIRIT GOES TO BE

WITH THE LORD.

IF YOU'RE RIGHT, WHAT

HAPPENS TO MY SOUL?

CAN YOU TELL ME WHERE IN THE

BIBLE I CAN FIND THE

ANSWER?"

Pat: GO BACK IN

GENESIS.

GOD BREATHED ON THE DUST OF

THE EARTH.

THE DUST IS LIKE THE BODY.

THE BREATH IS WEN NUMA

SPIRIT, AND THE SPIRIT CAME

TOGETHER, AND MAN BECAME A

NEFISH, A LIVING SOUL.

THE SOUL IS THAT SELF, BUT

THE SPIRIT IS WHAT GOD TAKES

AND GOES ON FOREVER.

WHEN YOUR SPIRIT LEAVES YOUR

BODY IN A SENSE, THAT SOUL

DOESN'T EXIST ANY LONGER

BECAUSE IT IS NOW SEPARATED

FROM THE FLESH.

THE SPIRIT IS WHAT GOES ON.

WHEN YOU'RE WITH THE LORD,

IT IS YOUR SPIRIT THAT IS

WITH THE LORD.

WE TALK ABOUT THE BODY,

SOUL, AND SPIRIT, BUT THE

SOUL COMES ABOUT BECAUSE OF

THE MERGER OF SPIRIT AND

BODY.

AND YOU TAKE SPIRIT AND BODY

APART, AND I'M MAKING A

LITTLE THEOLOGY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW, BUT I THINK WHEN

YOU TAKE THEM APART, THERE

ISN'T A SOUL.

THERE IS A SPIRIT.

AND THAT'S WHAT GOES TO BE

WITH THE LORD.

AS THE RESURRECTION, THERE

IS A NEW BODY, A SPIRITUAL

BODY, THAT MERGES INTO THE

SPIRIT WE HAVE, AND THAT

BECOMES A NEW PERSON.

IT'S A NEW BEING.

BUT I MIGHT SAY, ALSO, THE

WORD IN GREEK -- ALL THESE

WORDS -- I'M NOT TRYING TO

SHOW OFF, BUT THE WORD FOR

SOUL IS PY PSNKE.

Wendy: SHE SAYS, "I

FILED BANKRUPTCY AND I JUST

RECEIVED A CHECK FOR $1,480

FROM A CLASS-ACTION SUIT.

HOW CAN I BEST INVEST THIS

MONEY TO MAKE THE MOST

PROFIT?"

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU

WHAT, BARBARA, UNLESS YOU

CAN MAKE THINGS, IF YOU'RE

GOOD WITH SEWING OR

KNITTING, YOU MIGHT GET SOME

CLOTH AND MAYBE YOU CAN MAKE

STUFF AND CELL IT.

THAT'S HOW YOU CAN START A

BUSINESS AND MAKE THINGS

GROW.

IN TERMS OF INVESTING, I AM

REALLY HIGH ON THESE

E.T.F.s, EXCHANGE TRADED

FUNDS, WITH WHAT ARE CALLED

MASTER LIMITED

PARTNERSHIPS.

THESE THINGS DON'T PAY

TAXES.

THEY THROW OUT A HUGE STREAM

OF INCOME ON ESSENTIALLY

GUARANTEED BASIS BECAUSE

THEY'RE PROCESSING GAS AND

OIL.

YOU CAN PRETTY MUCH GET 6%,

7%, 8%, 9%, AND EVEN 10% OR

MORE.

AND THAT'S WHAT I

RECOMMEND.

SO IF YOU CAN ASK YOUR

BROKER, I WANT TO FIND OUT

ABOUT MASTER LIMITED

PARTNERSHIPS.

AND THE GOOD ONES ARE

MATERIALLY SOUND.

WELL, YOU COULD GET, SAY,

$80 A YEAR.

THAT'S ABOUT ALL YOUR $1400

IS GOING TO GETS YOU, BUT,

THAT'S BETTER THAN NOTHING.

Wendy: ETHEL SAYS, "I

KNOW THE BIBLICAL TELLS

ABOUT DISCERNING FALSE

PROFITS.

WATCHING A SHOW ABOUT A

MEDIUM IS FASCINATING.

HOW CAN YOU CONFIRM WHETHER

OR NOT SHE IS RIGHT.

IT TROUBLES ME."

Pat: MOST OF THEM ARE

FAKE.

THE TABLE TAPPERS AND

OTHERS -- MOST OF THEM ARE

WORKING SOME SCAM.

I'LL HAVE YOU IN THE

AUDIENCE, WENDY, AND I'LL

SAY, WENDY, LET'S SEE, YOU

REALLY LOVED YOUR

GRANDMOTHER, DIDN'T YOU?

Pat: AND YOU'LL SAY,

OH, YES, SHE WAS VERY

CLOSE.

I'LL SAY, I'VE GOT A MESSAGE

FROM YOUR GRANDMOTHER, AND

HER NAME WAS -- AND YOU'LL

VOLUNTEER IT WAS MABEL.

AND IF YOU'RE SMART, IT WILL

LOOK LIKE I'M TELLING YOU

SOMETHING AND FINDING OUT

THESE ANSWERS.

BUT IT COMES FROM DEMONS.

THAT'S THE PROBLEM, THESE

THINGS ARE DEMONIC.

I DON'T CARE, THE LONG

ISLAND MEDIUM OR WHATEVER

MEDIUM YOU HAVE GOT ON TV,

IT'S JUST, I HEARD A MESSAGE

FROM YOUR GRANDFATHER AND HE

IS JUST FINE.

Wendy: AND DOESN'T THE

BIBLE SAY DON'T CULT THE

DEAD ON BEHALF OF THE

LIVING?

Pat: IT'S WRONG.

THAT'S RIGHT.

A PERSON CUTS WITH SPIRITS

THAT PEEP AND MUTTER AND NOT

TURN TO THE LIVING GOD --

THIS STUFF COMES FROM EVIL.

Wendy: WE'RE OUT OF

TIME.

Pat: WELL, ALL OVER THE

WORLD, "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

PROVIDES SAFE HOMES FOR

AT-RISK CHILDREN.

IN CHINA, A HOME LIKE THIS

KEPT ONE YOUNG GIRL FROM

BEING KIDNAPPED, SOLD AS A

BRIDE, BY BRIDE

TRAFFICKERS.

Reporter: AFTER

SHASHA'S FATHER DIED OF A

HEART ATTACK, A GROUP OF MEN

PAID HER A VISIT, BUT THEY

WEREN'T THERE TO OFFER

CONDOLENCES.

THEY WERE THERE TO TRAFFIC

HER.

MRS. JONG IS A CHRISTIAN

NEIGHBOUR WHO HEARD ABOUT

THE TRAGIC KERS PLANS.

> TRAFFICKERS.

THEY LIED TO HER.

THEY WERE PLANNING TO SELL

THEM BOTH FOR MONEY.

Reporter: TRAFFICKERS

THRIVE IN THIS REGION.

SHASHA HERSELF WOULD BE

WORTH JUST A FEW HUNDRED

DOLLARS.

SHE WOULD FACE A LIFE OF

BEATINGS AND INTIMIDATION TO

KEEP HER FROM ESCAPING.

IT ALWAYS FELT LIKE THERE

WERE BAD GUYS FOLLOWING ME.

I DESPERATELY WANTED SOMEONE

TO SAVE ME.

Reporter: MRS. JONG

WANTED THE SAME, SO SHE TOOK

SHASHA'S MOTHER TO AN

ELDERLY HOME, AND THEN MOVED

SHASHA AWAY TO A SAFE HOUSE,

RUN BY CBN AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

WHEN SHE FIRST CAME HERE,

SHE WAS PALE AND SKINNY.

SO WE MET HER PHYSICAL

NEEDS, AND WE TOLD HER ABOUT

THE LOVE OF THE LORD, AND

THOUGHT HER TO READ THE

BIBLE.

SINCE THEN, SHE HAS RECEIVED

THE LORD AS HER SAVIOR, AND

NOW HER LIFE IS MUCH

BETTER.

I'M NOT AFRAID ANYMORE.

I KNOW THE LORD WILL BE WITH

ME AND ALSO PROTECT ME.

I HAVE MY OWN BED, AND I

SLEEP WELL EVERY NEITHER.

NIGHT.

IT'S LIKE I HAVE A REAL

FAMILY.

I'LL REALLY GRATEFUL THE

LORD GAVE ME A HOME LIKE

THIS.

I THANK CBN AND "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" BECAUSE WITHOUT

YOUR HELP, THERE WOULD BE NO

SAFE HOME FOR SHASHA OR ANY

OF THOSE CHILDREN.

YOU HAVE GIVEN THEM A PLACE

WHERE THERE IS LOVE AND

SUPPORT, AND CHILDREN'S

HEARTS ARE BEING HEALED.

YOU ARE TRULY SERVANTS OF

THE LORD.

Pat: PUT YOURSELF IN

THE POSITION OF A

7-YEAR-OLD, AN 8-YEAR-OLD,

AND YOU DON'T HAVE ANY

PARENTS, AND YOU'RE ALL BY

YOURSELF.

THINK ABOUT IT.

THINK ABOUT HOW LONELY YOU

ARE.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

YOU'RE SCARED.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN SOMEBODY

COMES ALONG AND SAYS I'M

GOING TO TAKE YOU AND SELL

YOU TO THIS MAN.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE THIS

WIFE.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS

ALL ABOUT, AND YOU'RE SCARED

TO DEATH.

THAT'S WHAT GOES ON.

I THINK THIS HUMAN

TRAFFICKING IS AN

ABOMINATION.

WE WANT TO DO EVERYTHING WE

CAN TO STOP IT.

ONE WAY TO HELP IS TO MAKE

SURE THESE LITTLE ORPHANS

AREN'T JUST CAST ADRIFT INTO

SOCIETY.

AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE" DOES

IT.

WE HAVE A SHELTERED HOME,

HOT MEALS, LOVING CARE,

EDUCATION -- ALL OF THAT.

SO THEY LEARN THE LOVE OF

GOD AND THEY FEEL SECURE.

WE CAN'T DO THEM ALL, BUT

THERE ARE THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN IN

"ORPHANS' PROMISE'S" HOMES.

THAT IS ONE OF THE

OUTREACHES OF CBN.

TERRY IS OVER IN THE UKRAINE

TRYING TO HELP SOME ORPHANS

RIGHT NOW.

IF YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB,"

65 CENTS A DAY, WE WANT TO

SEND YOU THIS MEDITATION BY

GORDON ON THE LORD'S PRAYER

CALLED "OUR FATHER."

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW WE'LL SEE NIK

WALLENDA.

HE IS GOING TO GO ACROSS THE

GRAND CANYON.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM THE PSALMS:

"GREAT IS OUR LORD, AND

MIGHTY IN POWER.

HIS UNDERSTANDING.

HE IS INFINITE."

BYE-BYE.
