The 700 Club - August 26, 2013

Financial expert Clark Howard shares strategies for saving and managing your money. Plus, Debra was hungry to succeed in the male dominated profession of law enforcement, the problem was that she hated men. Read Transcript


THREATENED WITH JAIL.

TWO CONSECUTIVE SIX MONTHS

TERMS IN PRISON.

AND YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHY.

IT SEEMS ABSURD THAT YOU

WOULD LOCK SOMEBODY UP FOR THAT.

AND THEN A COP THAT WORKED

THE WAY TO THE TOP.

FAILURE WAS NOT AN OPTION.

AND MADE SOME ENEMIES ALONG

THE WAY.

AND THEY USED IT AGAINST HE.

AND CLARK HOWARD LOOKS AT

THE

LONG HAUL ON TODAY'S "THE 700

CLUB".

WELL, WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB". THERE IS ALWAYS ONE

MORE

WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST THAT IS

GOING TO SUCK IN THE UNITED

STATES. THIS TIME IT IS SYRIA

WITH THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS AND

NAVY SHIPS ARE READY TO GO WITH

CRUISE MISSILES AND THE U.S.

AND

THE BRITS ARE GOING AFTER THEM.

UN INSPECTORS HAVE BEEN SHOT

AT AS THEY LOOK AT THE REPORTS

THAT THE GOVERNMENT LAUNCHED AN

TACK AGAINST ITS OWN PEOPLE.

IT'S BEEN FIVE DAYS SINCE

THE

CHEMICAL WEAPONS ATTACK IN

SYRIA

AND THE HASSAN REGIME SAID THEY

COULD LOOK FOR EVIDENCE OF AN

ATTACK BUT "IT'S TOO LATE TO

BECREDIBLE".

AND EVIDENCE WOULD BE

TAMPERED WITH.

AND THIS COMES AS CALLS FOR

MILITARY ACTION GROWS AND

BRITAIN AND FRANCE AND OTHERS

ARE CALLING FOR THE U.S. TO GET

INVOLVED.

WE SIMPLY CANNOT ALLOW THE

MOST DANGEROUS REGIMES TO GET

THE MOST DANGEROUS WEAPONS. IN

THE END THE EXTREMISTS USE THE

WEAPONS.

YOU COULD DESTROY

THEIR THINGS.

THIS IS THE TIME FOR THE

UNITED STATES TO DO SOMETHING

AND I HOPE THAT WE DO IT SOON.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS STILL

WEIGHING HIS OPTIONS AND

THEY'RE

CLOSER TO A RESPONSE AND NAVEL

FORCES HAVE BEEN DISPATCHED AND

COUNTRIES LIKE RUSSIA ARE

SKEPTICAL THAT SYRIA ARE BEHIND

THE ATTACKS AND HE DENIES HE

DID

IT AND WARNS "ANY U.S.

INTERVENTION WILL CAUSE A BALL

OF FIRE THAT WILL IN FLAME THE

MIDDLE EAST AND RESULT IN WAR"

CBN NEWS.

REMEMBER THE WAR OF ALL

BATTLES AND THEY HAVE THAT

RHETORIC. THE PROBLEM IS WHO

DO

WE GET IF WE TAKE DOWN HASSAN.

THAT'S THE PROBLEM. LOOKS LIKE

THE SAUDIS ARE STRONGLY AGAINST

HIM AND THE REPORTS I WAS

READING TODAY THEY HAVE

LAUNCHED

PRINCE BANBAR TO DO SOME WORK

BEHIND THE SCENES IN GETTING

PEOPLE TO TURN AGAINST THE

SYRIANS. THE SAUDIS OBVIOUSLY

WANT HIM OUT. WELL, THE

NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY HAS

BEEN FOUND SPYING -- SOME OF

THE

PEOPLE SPYING ON THE LOVE LIFE

OF EX-SPOUSES AND SO FORTH AND

AS A

UNIT MAYBE

SPYING ON THE UNITED NATIONS.

THAT'S RIGHT PAT. THEY

BUGGED THE HEADQUARTERS IN NEW

YORK ACCORDING TO A GERMAN

MAGAZINE AND THE NSA WAS ABLE

TO

GET INTO THE VIDEO CONFERENCING

CENTER LAST SUMMER AND GOT THE

INFORMATION FROM EDWARD SNOWDEN

WHO HAD OTHER LEAKS AND THERE

IS

TENSION NOW THAT THE USA

LEARNED

THEY HAVE BEEN SPYING ON THEM.

WELL, THE FARMERS ALMANNIC IS

PREDICTING A BITTERLY COLD

WINTER THIS YEAR AND PREDICTING

THE SUPER BOWL COULD TURN INTO

A

STORM BOWL AND THE GAME WILL BE

PLAYED OUTSIDE IN NEW YORK AND

IT'S PREDICTING A BLIZZARD

AROUND THAT TIME AND BASED ON

PLENARY POSITIONS AND SUNSPOTS

AND LUNAR CYCLES. AN OHIO MAN

CAME BACK TO LIFE AFTER BEING

DEAD FOR 35 MINUTES AND HIS

STORY MADE HEADLINES AROUND THE

WORLD AND CHARLENE ISRAEL

TRAVELED TO SEE HIS HIS FAITH

THAT KEPT HIM ALIVE.

TONY IS GLAD HE CAN GO TO

CHURCH.

I WAS A BELIEVER BUT IT'S A

DIFFICULT LEVEL NOW.

TONY HAD DIFFICULTY

BREATHING

AND WENT INTO CARDIAC ARREST.

4:00 A.M. THE LORD WOKE ME

UP

-- THERE IS NO OTHER

EXPLANATION. I DON'T GET UP AT

THAT TIME AND I HEARD HIS

BREATHING AND AS A NURSE I KNEW

IT WASN'T CORRECT AND I TRIED

TO

WAKE HIM UP AND NO PULSE AND I

WENT INTO MY TRAINING WITH CPR.

HE RUSHED TO THIS HOSPITAL

AND LATER CODED AND DOCTORS

WORKED FOR 45 MINUTES TO SAVE

HIS LIFE. HIS FAMILY WAS

SHOCKED AND HEART BROKEN.

MY STOMACH DROPPED AND

DIDN'T

KNOW HOW TO FEEL AND JUST CRIED.

IT WAS OVERWHELMING SHOCK, A

LOT OF GRIEF.

NURSES PREPARED THE BODY FOR

THE FAMILY'S FINAL VIEWING

MELISSA HOPED FOR THE

IMPOSSIBLE.

MY 17 YEAR OLD COUSIN WHO

WAS

A PREACHER AND LAID HIS HAND

UPON ME AND CALLED ME HIS CHILD

-- HE SAID A LOT MORE WHICH I

DON'T REMEMBER BUT ALSO SAID IF

WE BELIEVED IT WOULD BE DONE

AND

FROM THAT MOMENT ON I KNEW. I

KNEW HE WAS GOING TO BE ALL

RIGHT.

THE PASTOR AND HIS WIFE

JENNIFER WERE WITH HIS WIFE AND

HIS FAMILY AND WAS TEACHING ON

THE POWER OF PRAYER. THE

COUPLE

BEGAN TALK THEIR 17 YEAR OLD

SON

ABOUT GOD.

I REMEMBER WATCHING HIM WITH

THE ELBOWS ON THE DESK AND HE

HAD HIS HEAD DOWN AND PRAYING

AND THEN THE WORD CAME IN AND

WRAPPED WITH SUCH GRIEF. I

WILL

NEVER FORGET THE SOUNDS OF THE

WHALING, THE CRYING AND HE

JUMPED UP AND HIT THE WALL

REALLY HARD. I SAW LAWRENCE AS

HE WAS TURNED TO THE WALL

SHAKING HIS HEAD AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN HE STRAIGHTENED UP, AND

IT WAS AS IF HE HAD A SECOND

WIND.

REFUSING TO ACCEPT HIS

FATHER'S DEATH HE DID SOMETHING

EXTRAORDINARY.

SOMETHING JUST CLICKED AND I

JUST CAME OUT AND SAID "DAD

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DIE TODAY".

I SPOKE AGAINST THE SPIRIT

OF

DEATH IN MY PRAYER AND ASKED

THE

LORD TO CALL HIM BACK AND WHEN

I

DID THAT LAWRENCE RUNS OUT INTO

THE HALLWAY AND WE WERE IN

AGREEMENT. HE DECLARED THAT

THE

DOCTORS NOT GIVE UP HOPE ON HIS

DAD AND HE SPOKE TOWARDS HIS

DAD

AND SAID HIS DAD WOULD LEAVE.

IMMEDIATELY TONY'S BODY SHOWED

SIGNS OF LIFE AND FULLY AWAKE

FIVE DAYS LATER WITH NO DEFECTS

OR SIGNS.

AND THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS

AND EVEN DOWN TO ME COMING OUT

WITH NO BROKEN RIBS NOT BEING

SORE.

HOSPITAL OFFICIALS HAVE NO

EXPLANATION FOR HIS RECOVERY.

THEY AGREE THERE WAS DIVINE

INTERVENTION.

I BELIEVE WITH THE POWER OF

THE PRAYER AND ALL THE THINGS

BEING DONE FOR HIM WERE THE

PERFECT COALESCENCE OF GOD IN

OUR LIVES AND THE GIFTS HE

GIVES

US THAT WE SHOULD BE SHARING.

NEWS OF THE RESURRECTION HAS

SPREAD AROUND THE WORLD.

I THINK WE WERE CREATED BY AN

AMAZING GOD.

PEOPLE WHO DOUBT SAY IT'S

JUST MEDICAL. PEOPLE WHO

BELIEVE SAY IT'S PROOF OF WHO I

KNOW TO BE TRUE.

TONY SAYS HE DOESN'T

REMEMBER

ANYTHING ABOUT DEATH AND NO

WHITE LIGHT OR ANSWERS BUT HE

SAYS HIS FAITH IS STRONGER AND

MORE REAL THAN EVER.

GOD STEPS IN WHEN MAN CAN DO

NO MORE AND THEY PROMOUNCED ME

DEAD AND THAT'S WHEN HE CAME.

THE FAMILY WANT PEOPLE TO

WORSHIP GOD.

OUR GOD IS AMAZING.

CHARLENE ISRAEL. OHIO.

QUITE A STORY PAT.

IT'S AMAZING. IT'S AMAZING.

GOD IS THE GOD OF LIFE. JESUS

CHRIST SAYS HE'S THE GOD OF

ABRAHAM AND JACOB AND NOT OF

THE

DEAD BUT OF THE LIVING AND WE

ALL LIVE BEFORE HIM BUT IT JUST

SHOWS THERE IS A CONTINUUM

BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH AND THAT

MAN WAS FLAT OUT DEAD. THE

THING ABOUT IT HE'S GOT NO

BRAIN

DAMAGE, NO PHYSICAL PROBLEMS

AND

APPARENTLY WITH ALL THE WORK

BEING DONE NO BROKEN RIBS AND

IT'S AMAZING.

ASTONISHING STORY.

WOW.

45 MINUTES.

WITH A LOT OF FAITH AND A

SON

THAT BELIEVED AND A PASTOR WHO

BELIEVED AND A FAMILY WHO

BELIEVED. GOD DOES MIRACLES

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. IT'S NOT

THE FIRST CENTURY HE DOES

MIRACLES. HE DOES THEM ALL THE

TIME WANT HE LIVES, HE LIVES

WITHIN MY HEART. TERRY.

WELL, UP NEXT IT'S "STRANGER

THAN FICTION". HEAR WHAT

HAPPENED TO A EXECUTIVE CHARGED

WITH KILLING TWO BIRDS.

I HAVE KIDS AND TO THINK

THAT I

COULD GO TO PRISON IS SURREAL.

THIS MAN'S BIZARRE STORY IS

COMING UP AND LATER ON THE

THIRST MISER MILLION DOLLARS

CLARK HOWARD JOINS FOR TIPS ON

LIVING LARGE FOR THE LONG HAUL

.

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO TELL

YOU

THE STORY OF A PROSECUTOR WHO

WAS NAMED BY THE "WALL STREET

JOURNAL" THE DODO OF THE YEAR.

SUPPOSE YOUR CAT KILLED A BIRD

OR A BIRD DIED CRASHING INTO

YOUR WINDOW, AND THEN THE DODO

OF THE YEAR, THE FEDERAL

PROSECUTOR SHOWED UP TO PUT YOU

IN JAIL. SOUNDS ABSURD,

DOESN'T

IT? BUT THAT'S THE BASIC

PREMISE OF WHO HAPPENED IN

NORTH

DAKOTA AFTER THE DEATH OF JUST

28 BIRDS.

RECENT A TEXAS OIL MAN WAS

FACING A STRANGE FATE.

LITTLE DID HE KNOW THAT THE

DEATH OF TWO BIRDS COULD

THREATEN TO PUT HIM IN A PRISON

CELL.

SOME OF THESE HAVE WELLS AND

SOME BIRDS DROWN AND THE

PROSECUTOR WAS MAKING A SPECIAL

EFFORT TO FIND THESE BIRDS.

HE CHARTERED A HELICOPTER TO

SEARCH FOR THIS AND AROUND TO

ALL OF THE SITES IN DAKOTA.

HE CHARGED HIM WITH

CRIMINALLY KILLING BIRDS AND IN

VIOLATION OF THE MIGRATORY BIRD

TREATY ACT AND WAS SUPPOSED TO

BE USED ON POACHERS ILLEGALLY

KILLING BIRDS BUT THIS DIDN'T

STOP THIS PROSECUTORIAL TEAM.

THEY FOUND TWO BIRDS AND TWO

MALLARDS AND ALSO AS A CEO I

COULD SERVE TWO CONSECT I

TERMS IN

PRISON.

IT SEEMS ABSURD THAT YOU

WOULD LOCK SOMEBODY UP FOR

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

I AM A FATHER WITH FIVE WITH

CHILDREN FROM EIGHT TO 17 YEARS

OLD AND TO THINK THAT I COULD

POSSIBLY GO TO JAIL FOR THIS UP

TO A YEAR WAS REALLY SURREAL.

EVEN MORE SURREAL IF THE

PRISON COULD IMPRISON THESE OIL

EXECUTIVES THEY COULD THROW ANY

AMERICAN IN JAIL SO THE JUDGE

RULED HE COULDN'T GO ALONG WITH

WHAT THE PROSECUTOR WANTED AND

WOULD YIELD THESE RESULTS AND

DRIVING AND OWNING A CAT OR A

BUILDING AND ALL OF WHICH KILLS

BIRDS. THEY WANTED TO

PROSECUTE

FOR THE 27 BIRD DEATHS AND THE

JUDGE POINTED OUT POWER LINES

KILL THEM AND CATS KILL

MILLIONS

AND CRASHING INTO CARS AND MAYB

60

MILLION AND

THEY WOULD HAVE TO BE

CONSISTENT.

ANYBODY WITH A HOME THAT THE

BIRD FLIES INTO WOULD BE

CRIMINAL.

SO THE JUDGE THREW OUT THE

CASE AND YOU WOULD WONDER WHY

THEY'RE GOING AFTER THESE

PEOPLE

INSTEAD OF THE WIND INDUSTRY

THAT KILLS THOUSANDS OF BIRDS

WITH THE WIND TURBINES AND

MAYBE

THIS IS HARASSING AN INDUSTRY

NOT GREEN ENOUGH FOR THE

ADMINISTRATION.

THERE IS TALK ABOUT THE

ADMINISTRATION IS NOT THRILLED

ABOUT THE DRILLING AND THE

PEOPLE HERE.

AND IT SEEMS THAT WAY AND

THERE WAS AN EPA EXECUTIVE

TALKING ABOUT THAT TO SET AN

EXAMPLE.

JUST AS INDIVIDUALS CAN BE

SUBJECT TO CAPRICIOUS

PROSECUTION COMPANIES CAN TOO

AND USUALLY THEY'RE DISFAVORED

COMPANIED AND THEY'RE MAKING

SOMETHING THAT SOMEBODY THINKS

SHOULD BE ILLEGAL.

AND THE GOVERNMENT CAN

PROSECUTE AN INDUSTRY OR

INDIVIDUAL IF THEY WANT.

HE SAYS IT FEELS UN-AMERICAN

THE WAY THE FEDS HAVE TARGETED

HIM AND TRYING TO PUT HIM AWAY.

WE'RE ATTACKED BY OUR OWN

GOVERNMENT. IT'S START

EARLYING.

AND THIS INDUSTRY GETS A WAY

WITH ALL OF THESE BIRD CORPSES.

AND TO GO AFTER THE NATIONAL

BIRD AND THEY GO AFTER US FOR A

COUPLE OF MALLARDS.

EXECUTIVES WITH THE

UNFAVORED

COMPANIES THREATENED WITH JAIL

TIME AND THOSE THAT BUILD WIND

TURBINES THAT KILL THOUSANDS OF

BIRDS A YEAR AND NEVER HEAR A

WORLD FROM THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT. REPORTING FROM

AUSTIN TEXAS.

WHEN DO WE SAY ENOUGH IS

ENOUGH? WELL THE WALLSTREET

SCBROWRNL CRITICIZED THE U.S.

ATTORNEY WHO BROUGHT THE CASE.

THEY SAY -- THAT'S THE GUY.

THEY SAY HE'S THE DODO

PROSECUTOR OF THE YEAR. WE ADD

OUR APPLAUSE TO THE JOURNAL FOR

THAT BILT OF REPORTING. THE

DODO OF THE YEAR, TIMOTHY

BURTON, ONE OF THE ATTORNEYS IN

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OF O BAM

A THAT'S WHAT THEY DO TO PEOPLE

THEY DON'T LIKE. YOU'RE IN THE

OIL BUSINESS AND YOU KILLED TWO

MALLARDS AND YOU'RE GOING TO

JAIL.

THANK GOODNESS FOR THE JUDGE.

IT WAS SCATHING WHAT HE

SAID.

HOW DO THESE PEOPLE AUTO

PROBLEM

IS TERRY A GOOD PROSECUTOR

COULD

INVITE SANTA CLAUS ON CHRISTMAS

EVE. IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO

GET THE INDICTMENT FROM THE

GRAND JURY AND YOU DON'T HAVE

OPPOSING PEOPLE TALKING AND THE

PROSECUTOR HAS IT ALL. ISN'T

THAT SHOCKING?

IT IS BUT HAPPY TO SEE THERE

IS SOMETHING BEING DONE

POSITIVELY TO STOP THAT

CRAZINESS. I DON'T KNOW.

I HAVE A CONFEEGZ.

OR DEAR.

I HAVE A WINDOW. I HAVE A

WINDOW.

A LARGE WINDOW.

A LARGE WINDOW AND A BIRD --

A ROUGH GROUSE. THEY FLY AT

60 MILES PER HOUR AND CAME

RIPPING THROUGH THE SKY AND

DESTROYED THE WINDOW. IT WAS A

THOUSAND DOLLARS IN DAMAGE BUT

HE DIED IN THE PROCESS BUT

FORTUNATELY THE DODO OF THE

YEAR

DOESN'T LIVE IN BASS COUNTY

VIRGINIA.

I DOUBT THERE ARE HOMEOWNERS

THAT HAVEN'T HAD A BIRD FLY

INTO

A WINDOW.

AND THE CITY WILL PUT YOU IN

AND YOUR CHILDREN WILL WEEP AND

WE WILL CRY.

THANK YOU FOR COMING TO MY

RESCUE.

SO MUCH FOR THAT. NOW WE'RE

GOING TO TALK TO CLARK HOWARD

AND HE SPREADS THE WEALTH OF

HIS

COST CUTTING KNOWLEDGE. HIS

FOCUS IS ON CREDIT, CARS AND

HEALTH CAR AND THIS NEW BOOK

THAT HE HAS WRITTEN THAT I

THINK

YOU WILL FIND VERY INTERESTING

WHEN WE COME BACK

.

DID IY. DO IT YOURSELF.

DON'T WAIT UNTIL SOMEBODY ELSE

PROVIDES FOR YOU. THAT'S WHAT

CHAMPION FINANCIAL EXPERT CLARK

HOWARD SAYS AND HAS MADE A

CAREER SHOWING PEOPLE HOW TO

SAVE MORE AND SPEND LESS. TAKE

A LOOK.

CLARK HOWARD IS A SUCCESSFUL

ENTREPRENEUR AND THROUGH HIS

SHOWS AND BEST SELLING BOOKS HE

GIVES VALUABLE MONEY SAVING

TIPS. SAVE MORE

AND SPEND LESS IS A WAY OF LIFE

AND WANTS TO SHOW YOU HOW TO

LIVE LARGE FOR THE LONG HAH.

THIS IS MONEY TIPS

AND CLARK HOWARD IS WITH US AND

GREAT TO HAVE YOU.

[APPLAUSE]

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

LET'S START WITH COMPLICATED

CREDIT SCORES. HOW DO YOU GET

A

GOOD SCORE? HOW DO YOU GET A

BAD ONE?

IT'S EASIER THAN YOU MIGHT

IMAGINE TO KEEP A GOOD ASK THE

SCORE. NUMBER ONE THIS IS HARD

TO DO. YOU PAY EVERY BILL ON

TIME EVERY MONTH AND YOU USE

VERY LITTLE OF YOUR CREDIT AND

IF YOU HAVE CREDIT CARDS AND

THE

LIMIT IS $10,000 NEVER USE MORE

THAN $3,000 OF THE AVAILABLE

$10,000 CREDIT. YOU DO THOSE

TWO THINGS AND THAT IS TWO

THIRDS OF WHAT MAKES UP THE

SCORE.

TWO THIRDS.

2/3S IS PAYING ON TIME AND

USING LITTLE OF YOUR AVAILABLE

CREDIT.

YOU DON'T ADVOCATE YOU PAY

OFF ONE OF THE HIGH DOLLAR --

CUTTING UP THE CARD. YOU WANT

TO KEEP THE CARD ACTIVE?

ABSOLUTELY. YOU NEVER CUT

UP

A CARD. IT'S THE NUMBER ONE

MISTAKE FROM PEOPLE THAT DO

FROM

GRADUATING FROM OWING DEBT AND

YOU DON'T CLOSE ACCOUNTS

BECAUSE

THAT DEVASTATES YOUR SCORE AND

YOU WERE RIDING TO RAISE THE

SCORE YOU EAT IT UP.

SO THE MORE CREDIT YOU HAVE

AVAILABLE THE BETTER YOUR SCORE?

100%, YES.

INCREDIBLE. WHAT ELSE

COUNTS? SEEMS THAT YOU HAVE A

LOT OF MONEY DOESN'T MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

IT'S TRUE. WHAT YOU MAKE

MAKES NO DIFFERENCE IN THE

SCORE. THE OTHER THINGS DON'T

MATTER. IF YOU APPLIED FOR A

LOT OF CREDIT RECENTLY THAT

WILL

LOWER THE SCORE, THE MIX OF

CARDS. DO YOU HAVE CAR LOAN,

HOME EQUITY LINE, THOSE THINGS,

BUT REALLY THE ONLY THING THAT

TRULY MATTERS ARE THE FIRST TWO

THINGS THAT WE TALKED ABOUT.

PAYING THEM ON TIME AND

HAVING SMALL AMOUNT OF CREDIT

USED. THAT'S FANTASTIC. OKAY.

AUTOMOBILE. WE HAVE TWO THINGS

WE SPEND MONEY ON, HOUSES AND

CARS.

DEFINITELY.

YOU'RE NOT IN FAVOR OF

BUYING

NEW CARS AND GETTING THE NICE

SMELL EVERY YEAR.

NO. IT'S FUNNY THERE IS A

GUY THAT I PROFILE IN THE BOOK

AND WAS A CAR SALESMAN HIS

WHOLE

LIFE AND HE WOULD KEEP A CAR

FOREVER BUT THE CUSTOMERS WOULD

GET A NEW CAR EVERY COUPLE OF

YEARS AND GARY IS RETIRED AND

THE CUSTOMERS ARE WORKING AND

THE REALITY IS NEW CARS COST A

FORTUNE

AND

THEY EAT YOUR MONEY ALIVE.

IT'S

UGLY WHAT IT DOES AND IF YOU

KEEP A CAR FOR 10 YEARS OR USED

CAR FOR FOUR YEARS AND YOU CAN

RETIRE FIVE YEARS SOONER.

OH STOP IT. FIVE YEARS

SOONER?

FIVE YEARS YOUR NEIGHBOR IS

STILL GOING TO WORK.

BUT HE HAS THE SMELL OF THE

NICE NEW LEATHER.

THAT'S RIGHT AND YOU CAN DO

WHATEVER YOU WANT IN YOUR LIFE

BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T DO THAT.

YOU

DIDN'T GO BACK TO THE CAR

DEALER

OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

WELL, YOU EVEN ADVOCATING

BICYCLES.

WELL, NOT -- IT'S NOT

SOMETHING I WOULD DO, BUT THERE

IS A COUPLE ROBERT AND HIS WIFE

AND MOVED TO ILLINOIS AND HAD

$100,000 IN STUDENT LOAN DEBT.

THEY WOULDN'T RECOMMEND ANYONE

TAKING THAT OUT NOW BUT WHEN

YOU'RE YOUNG YOU DON'T THINK

ABOUT THE DEBT YOU'RE TAKING ON

SO THEY REALIZED THEY WOULD BE

IN DEBT THE REST OF THEIR LIVES

SO THEY SOLD THEIR CARS AND

THEY

DON'T LIVE LIKE IN CHICAGO.

THEY LIVE DOWN STATE. THEY

COMMUTE EVERYWHERE BY BICYCLE.

JUST THE MONEY THEY SAVED BY

NOT

DRIVING WITH THE CARD CART ON

THE BACK TO

GET THINGS AND THEY ARE IN

GREAT

CONDITION. THEY PAID OFF THEIR

STUDENT LOAN DEBT.

HOW MUCH DID THEY PAY OFF?

$100,000.

YOU'RE KIDDING.

FROM RIDING BICYCLES AND

MOST

PEOPLE CAN'T DO THAT AND IF

YOU'RE A TWO CAR FAMILY AND GET

BY WITH ONE OR A TWO CAR FAMILY

AND DO THAT AND THE AVERAGE CAR

COSTS 60 CENTS A MILE TO

OPERATE. I LIKE GETTING A

BAGEL

IN THE MORNING AND IT'S $3 AND

I

TELL MY BAGEL COSTS ME $10

BECAUSE OF THE COST OF DRIVING

TO THE SHOP AND BACK HOME AND

ACTUALLY TWICE WHAT THE COST OF

MY BAGEL IS.

YOU DRIVE 10,000 MILES AND

$6,000.

THAT'S RIGHT.

MOST DO 20,000.

SO THAT IS $12,000 A YEAR

FOR

TRANSPORTATION.

UNBELIEVABLE. ALL RIGHT.

HEALTH CARE. THAT'S THE BIG

ONE

NOW. WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THAT?

WELL, THIS IS CONTROVERSIAL

AND IT'S NOT FOR EVERYBODY.

ALL RIGHT.

BUT IF YOU NEED A MAJOR

PROCEDURE EVEN IF YOU'RE

INSURED

YOU FACE ENORMOUS OUT OF POCKET

SO THERE SAY MUSICIAN NAMED

WILLY WHO I PROFILED WHO WAS

FACING AN OPERATION AND CALLED

AROUND AND THE PRICE WAS 150

GRAND TO $300,000 FOR THE

OPERATION.

WHAT WERE THEY GOING TO DO

TAKE THE STOMACH OUT?

A HEART OPERATION, SO HE

GOES

TO INDIA AND THE OPERATION

INCLUDING TRANSPORTATION WAS

$9,000.

WASN'T HE AFRAID THEY DIDN'T

KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING?

WELL THERE IS A COMMISSION

THAT RATES FACILITIES OUTSIDE

THE UNITED STATES AND HERE AS

WELL AND THEIR STANDARDS ARE

VERY HIGH AND IF YOU GO TO A

PLACE THAT MEETS THE JOINT

COMMISSION STANDARDS YOU SHOULD

GET MEDICAL CARE YOU WOULD BE

COMPLETELY COMFORTABLE AND NOT

JUST FOR YOURSELF BUT A LOVED

ONE HAVE IT AND IT'S A RADICAL

STEP TO BE AWAY FROM FAMILY AND

FRIENDS, HALFWAY ACROSS THE

WORLD BUT IN HIS CASE HE WOULD

HAVE DIED. HE COULDN'T AFFORD

HIS SHARE OF THE OPERATION SO

BY

GOING TO INDIA HE'S HEALTHY AND

HE'S NOT BROKE.

I DON'T PRESUME IS THE

COSMETIC CAPITAL OF THE WORLD --

YEAH COSTA RICA IS BIG FOR

RESTORATIVE DENTAL CARE.

REALLY?

IF YOU NEED DENTAL CARE

PEOPLE GO THERE FOR THAT. THEY

ALSO GO TO HUNGRY.

HUNGRY?

HUNGARY IS A PLACE AND

AMERICANS AND CANADIANS AND

EUROPEANS GO FOR EXTREME DENTAL

CARE THEY CAN'T AFFORD.

HOW DO THEY GET THEIR

EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE?

WELL, THEY GO TO DENTAL

SCHOOL JUST LIKE OUR DENTISTS

DO, AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT

RIGHT NOW WHILE WE'RE SPEAKING

THERE ARE DOCTORS AND DENTISTS

WHO ARE NOT HAPPY WITH ME, BUT

THE COSTS OF MEDICAL CARE

VARIES

SO MUCH IN THE WORLD, AND IT'S

NOT LIKE EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE

THE

BEST MEDICAL SYSTEM IN THE

WORLD

IT'S NOT LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE IS

BACK IN THE STONE AGES WITH

MEDICAL CARE.

WELL, THE HOSPITALS PUMP THE

COSTS --

SURE.

LIKE YOU CAN'T BELIEVE.

IT'S

SO EXPENSIVE.

ABSOLUTELY.

IT'S THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND IT LEAVES PEOPLE

ECONOMICALLY DEVASTATED.

RIGHT AND WE FACE AS

AMERICANS MORE AND MORE OF THE

HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE SHIFTED

TO

US INDIVIDUALLY WE HAVE TO MAKE

DECISION AS A CONSUMER LIKE WE

DO IN OTHER THINGS AND DOING

SOMETHING LIKE GOING OVERSEAS

IS

EXTREME AND PEOPLE ARE ALSO

TRAVELING ACROSS AMERICA. THEY

MAY FIND THAT A PROCEDURE --

LET'S SAY THEY LIVE IN DALLAS

AND THE OPERATION IS $80,000

BUT

IF THEY TRAVEL TO PITTSBURGH

IT'S $25,000. THEY MAY TRAVEL

AND NOT AS CRAZY AS INDIA OR

SINGAPORE.

WELL, THE SINGAPORE GUYS

ARE

PRETTY GOOD.

THAT'S TRUE AND IN LIFE WHEN

WE GET LEMONS WE HAVE TO TURN

IT

INTO LEMONADE AND THAT IS THE

UNDERLYING THEME AND WHATEVER

LIFE GIVES YOU YOU NEED TO TAKE

CARE OF YOURSELF.

IT'S A FASCINATING BOOK AND

A

PENDIUM OF PEOPLE THAT TRIED

THESE THINGS.

AND NOT EVERYBODY HAS

SUCCEEDED AS WELL AS I MIGHT

LIKE BUT I WANTED TO TELL

STORIES OF PEOPLE THAT SUFFERED

OVER THE LAST SIX YEARS AND

ECONOMIC HARDSHIP IN THE UNITED

STATES HOW ARE THEY MAKING IT

THROUGH? IF THEY GOT

FORECLOSED

ON OR LOST A JOB WHAT IS THEIR

NEXT ACT? I WANT PEOPLE TO

REALIZE LIFE IS A LONG JUNIOR

AND HE JUST BECAUSE YOU HAD A

TOUGH ROUND OR CHAPTER IN YOUR

LIFE DON'T GIVE UP.

I BUY THAT. LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN IT'S CALLED CLARK

HOWARD LIVING LARGE FOR THE

LONG

HAUL" AND LOOKS ARE SOLD

EVERYWHERE AND FASCINATING SOME

OF THE STORIES AND THEY'RE

SHORT

LITTLE TAKES. IT'S AN EASY

READ

BUT IT'S EASY READ. THERE IS

ONE CALLED "SCARED STIFF."

CLARK HOWARD THANK YOU.

SO GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

TERRY.

I DON'T KNOW PAT AND DALLAS

BACK AFTER THIS

.

AS A CHILD DEBRA DEVELOPED

AN

INTENSE FEAR OF MEN AFTER SHE

WITNESSED HER FATHER CHOKING

HER

MOTHER AND THIS PUSHED HER TO

PUT A GUN TO HER HEAD.

IT WAS VERY VIOLENT AND SUCH

A SENSE OF FEAR AND INSTABILITY

IN MY HOME BECAUSE WE NEVER

KNEW

WHEN HE WOULD BE DRINKING.

WHEN DEBRA WAS 10 SHE KNEW

WHEN HER FATHER WAS DRUNK THE

MOTHER WOULD PAY THE PRICE AND

ONE NIGHT IT STOPPED.

THERE WAS A SILENCE IN THE

HOUSE AND ERIE SILENCE AND FROM

CHAOS TO STILLNESS SO I GOT OUT

OF BED AND I WALKED TOWARD A

LIGHT IN THE KITCHEN. I SAW MY

FATHER CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF

HER. I KNEW HE WAS KILLING MY

MOTHER.

DEBRA GRABBED A SKILLET AND

HIT HER DAD AND DISTRACTED HE

TURNED ON DEB.

AND HE PUNCHED ME AND

KNOCKED

ME UNCONSCIOUS.

FINALLY HER MOTHER DIVORCED

HER DAD AND THE CHAOS ENDED BUT

LEFT HER IN FEAR OF MEN.

THERE WAS A DEEP ROOT FEAR

OF

MEN. THEY WEREN'T SAFE TO ME

AND I HAD NO RELATIONSHIP WITH

MEN. I WAS SHUT OFF.

FEMALE INTRIGUED HER AND SHE

BECAME SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO

GIRLS.

SO I STRUGGLED WITH THESE

FEELINGS, THOSE E EMOTIONS.

THERE WAS THINGS GOING ON AS

FAR

AS MY SEXUALITY. I THOUGHT I

WAS DIFFERENT.

DEBORAH DATED WOMEN IN

COLLEGE BUT STRUGGLED WITH THE

CHOICE.

THERE WAS A LOT OF INNER

TURMOIL GOING ON. THERE IS

SOMETHING ABOUT IT THAT IS NOT

RIGHT, NOT NATURAL, SO THERE

WERE A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON

IN

MY HEAD AND EMOTIONS.

DEBRA WAS THE FIRST WOMAN TO

MEET THE PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

TO BECOME A PAROL OFFICER IN THE

LAS VEGAS POLICE DEPARTMENT AND

SHE WORKED WITH A WOMAN AND WAS

PROMOTED UP THE RANKS. SHE

DIDN'T INTEND TO STOP UNTIL SHE

REACHED CAPTAIN.

I AM THE PIONEER AND PAVING

THE WAY AND FAILURE WAS NOT AN

OPTION.

BUT THERE WERE SOME AGAINST

A

WOMAN HOLDING THE TOP SPOT.

THERE WERE SEVERAL THAT DID

THIS AND IT PERPETUATED THE

FEAR

FROM MY DAD.

THIS FUELED HER TO BECOME

CAPTAIN. SHE NEVER SUSPECTED

HOW FAR THEY WOULD GO TO STOP

HER. ONE OF THE OFFICERS CAME

IN AND WAS WEARING A RECORDER.

HE SAID IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY

YOU CAN TRANSFER AND THEY SAID

THAT WAS INTIMIDATING AND THEY

USED THAT AGAINST ME.

SHE FACED AN INVESTIGATION

AND POSSIBLE DEMOTION AND

PLACED

ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE.

I WAS SHOCKED IT WAS LIKE

REALLY? HERE I AM. I AM

HIGHLY

DECORATED AND DISTINGUISHED

OFFICER AND ON THE DEPARTMENT

FOR 18 PLUS YEARS AND I AM

THINKING IS THIS WHAT IT COME

TO?

DEB TOOK HER GUN AND

CONSIDERED KILLING HERSELF.

IT WAS SO INTENSE. THERE

WAS

PAIN, DEEP HURT. THERE WAS

ANGER. THEY WERE GOING TO PULL

THIS OFF AND GET AWAY WITH IT

AND I KNEW THAT. NOT ONLY WAS

I

LOSING MY CLEAR I WAS LOSING MY

IDENTITY. MY IDENTITY WAS A

POLICE OFFICER.

INSTEAD OF PULLING THE

TRIGGER DEBRA BEGGED GOD FOR

HELP.

GOD, IF YOU'RE REAL, IF

YOU'RE REALLY GOD, I NEED YOU.

AND I GOT DOWN ON MY KNEES AND

I

STARTED TO WEEP. THIS LIGHT

CAME IN. IT WAS ALMOST LIKE

WAVES OF LOVE AND PEACE WASHING

OVER ME. I NEVER EXPERIENCED

THAT BEFORE. IT WAS SO INTENSE

BUT SO COMFORTING AND I WAS

COMFORTED.

DEBRA ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST.

I SURROUNDED MY LIFE TO HIM.

OKAY. YOU CAN HAVE ME.

DEBRA BEGAN READING THE

BIBLE

EVERYDAY AND REALIZED SHE HAD

TO

TURN AWAY FROM HER BES BEAN

LIFESTYLE.

AND I READ IT IS NOT GOD'S

DESIGN. WHAT? I AM NOT BORN

THIS WAY? I BOUGHT THE LIE AND

A GENETIC THING AND HOW I WAS

CREATEED.

WHEN THE INVESTIGATION WAS

OVER DEBRA E DEMOTED TO

SERGEANT

AND ACCEPTED IT WITH DIGNITY.

AND I KEPT MY HEAD HELD HIGH

AND I HAD SOMETHING I DIDN'T

HAVE BEFORE AND THAT'S JESUS

AND

HE GAVE ME THE STRENGTH AND THE

GRACE TO GO BACK.

AFTER 21 YEARS OF SERVICE

DEB

LEFT THE POLICE OFFICER AND

BECAME AN AUTHOR AND WROTE A

BOOK ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE AND

LEADS A BIBLE STUDY ABOUT

OVERWHELMING DIVERSITY THROUGH

JESUS CHRIST.

HE TURNED BY LIFE AROUND.

MY

LIFE TODAY WITH CHRIST IS

AMAZING.

DEB WAS READY TO PUT A GUN

TO

HER HEAD AND TAKE HER LIFE

BECAUSE EVERYTHING IN HER WORLD

WAS FALLING APART. SHE LOST

WHAT SHE HAD PUT HER LIFE'S

EFFORTS INTO. SHE WAS LOSING

THE IDENTITY SHE CREATED FOR

YOURSELF AND YET DO YOU KNOW

EVERYONE IS BORN WITH A DNA

IDENTITY ATTACHED TO US. WE

ARE

BORN IN THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS

OF GOD AND WE ARE CREATED AND

MADE TO HAVE RELATIONSHIP WITH

HIM, AND NO MATTER HOW SOMEONE

HAS MARRED YOUR IMAGE OF MEN OR

WOMEN OR PEOPLE IN GENERAL OR

THE WORLD AROUND YOU GOD IS THE

GOOD GOD. HE LOVES YOU. HE

CREATED YOU SO HE COULD HAVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU AND BLESS

YOU. NOW, LISTEN THERE ARE

THINGS IN YOUR LIFE I KNOW THAT

HAVE INTERRUPTED YOUR

UNDERSTANDING OF WHO YOU ARE.

IT'S MAYBE KEPT YOU FROM

KNOWING

GOD, TO UNDERSTAND HIS GOODNESS

AND HIS LOVE AND FORGIVENESS

AND

MERS AND HE GRACE. DEBRA'S

STORY IS A PERFECT PICTURE OF

THE FACT THAT GOD GIVES US THE

OPPORTUNITY FOR A BRAND-NEW

BEGINNING. EVEN WHEN WE HAVE

BLOWN IT, MADE MISTAKES BECAUSE

WHATEVER HAPPENED IN OUR LIVES

HE SAYS "COME TO ME. COME UNTO

ME ALL THAT LABOR AND I WILL

GIVE YOU REST." MAYBE YOUR

LABORERRING TODAY TRYING TO

UNDERSTAND WHO YOU ARE, WHAT

LIFE IS ABOUT. MAYBE YOU'RE AS

DESPERATE AS DEBRA WAS. DON'T

DO IT. DON'T DO IT. GIVE GOD

THE SAME CHANCE YOU HAVE GIVEN

EVERYTHING ELSE IN YOUR LIFE.

JUST COME TO HIM AND ASK. YOU

SEE DEBRA TALKED ABOUT A

PARTICULAR SIN IN HER LIFE.

THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

WE

HAVE ALL SINNED AND FALLEN

SHORT

OF THE GLORY OF GOD AND

GOD I AM IN NEED OF A SAVIOR

AND

DEBRA CHANGED HER LIFE AND GOT

INTO THE WORD OF GOD. IT'S NOT

JUST A BOOK AND WORDS ON A

PIECE

OF PAPER. THE WORD OF GOD IS

ALIVE AND PENETRATING. IT WILL

GO TO THE CORE OF YOUR HEART,

TO

THE CORE OF YOUR BEING, IF YOU

LEAD IT. GET A HOLD OF THE

BIBLE AND READ THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN AND START THERE. IT'S

CALLED THE LETTER OF LOVE FROM

GOD TO YOU. ASK GOD TO SPEAK

TO

YOUR HEART AS YOU READ IT.

HE'S

REAL. HE LOVES YOU. HE KNOWS

YOU INSIDE AND OUT AND THE

BIBLE

SAYS HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS. DOESN'T MATTER WHERE

YOU COME FROM OR HOW BAD YOU

HAVE BEEN AND YOU GET TO START

OVER AND YOU NEED TO SURRENDER

YOUR LIFE AND YOU CAN DO THAT

RIGHT NOW. STOP WHAT YOU'RE

DOING AND MEAN BUSINESS WITH

GOD

AS WE PRAY TOGETHER. PRAY WITH

ME. GOD, I AM COMING TO YOU

TODAY AT THE END OF MY ROPE, AT

THE END OF MYSELF. I NEED A

NEW

BEGINNING. I ACKNOWLEDGE TODAY

BEFORE YOU I AM A SINNER.

JESUS, THANK YOU FOR DYING FOR

MY SIN. I GET IT. I GET IT

AND

I WANT TO RECEIVE YOUR

FORGIVENESS TODAY. I CONFESS

IT

ALL TO YOU. YOU KNOW

EVERYTHING

I HAVE DONE, EVERY WORD I HAVE

SPOKEN, EVERY ACT I HAVE

PARTICIPATED IN AND FORGIVE IT

ALL AND I AM ASKING YOU TO FILL

ME WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT AND

TEACH ME TO LIVE FOR YOU. I

DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO THAT GOD

BUT I AM WILLING TO LEARN.

SHOW

ME WHO YOU ARE. SHOW ME WHO I

AM IN YOU AND HELP ME TO LIVE

DIFFERENTLY. CHANGE THE WAY I

THINK. CHANGE THE ATTITUDE OF

MY HEART. COME AND TAKE MY

HEARTS, MY PRIDE, EVERYTHING,

GOD. I LAY IT BEFORE YOU TODAY

AND I SAY MAKE ME HOLY YOURS.

I

WANT TO BELONG TO YOU. I WANT

TO LIVE FOR YOU AND I WANT TO

SAY THANK YOU GOD FOR WAITING

FOR ME. THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT

OF ETERNAL LIFE. THANK YOU FOR

TOUCHING MY LIFE TODAY WITH

YOUR

LOVE AND YOUR MERCY AND YOUR

POWER. I RECEIVE IT ALL IN

JESUS' NAME. AMEN. IF YOU'VE

JUST PRAYD THAT PRAYER THEN YOU

HAVE BEGUN A GREAT WONDERFUL

NEW

RELATIONSHIP WITH A LIVING GOD.

WE HAVE SOMETHING TO SEND YOU.

IT'S ABSOLUTELY FREE BUT WILL

HELP YOU GROW IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP. IT'S CALLED "A

NEW DAY" AND FILLED WITH

WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP. HOW DO

YOU MOVE FORWARD? WHO IS JESUS

AND HOW DO YOU LIVE FOR HIM?

YOU GET THIS BY CALLING THE

TOLL-FEE PHONE NUMBER. IT'S

1-800-759-0700. NO OTHER

COMMITMENT. IF YOU DO HAVE

SOMETHING SPECIFIC YOU WOULD

LIKE TO PRAY ABOUT THERE IS A

PERSON ANSWERING THE PHONE THAT

HAS MADE THE SAME COMMITMENT

YOU

HAVE AND THEY WOULD LOVE TO

PRAY

WITH YOU SO PLEASE CALL THEM.

PAT.

THANK YOU TERRY. IT'S TIME

TO

BRING IT

UP. "I RECENTLY CAUGHT MY

BOYFRIEND WITH PORN AND HOW DO

I

GET HIM TO STOP"

.

WELL, AS PAT MENTIONED WE

RECEIVED SOME OF YOUR EMAILS SO

WE WOULD LIKE TO BRING IT ON

WITH THE QUESTIONS AND THIS IS

FROM SARA "I RECENTLY CAUGHT MY

BOYFRIEND WATCHING PORN AND I

EXPLAINED HOW I FELT AND HOW IT

WAS WRONG. I SHOWED HIM WHAT

WAS IN THE BIBLE. HE

APOLOGIZED

BUT I CAUGHT HIM AGAIN. I DON'T

THINK HE'S ADDICTED AND WATCHES

IT OCCASIONALLY. HOW CAN I GET

HIM TO STOP?"

HOW DO YOU TALK TO A DRUG

ADDICT TO GET THEM TO STOP

USING

MARIJUANA OR HEROIN? HOW DO

YOU

TALK TO A ALCOHOLIC TO STOP

DRINKING? I DON'T THINK IT'S

THE TALKING. IN THE CASE OF A

DUG ADDICT THERE IS A PROCESS

THAT GOES ON. PORN IS AN

INCREDIBLE ADDITION BECAUSE IT

TOUCHES A NATURAL HUMAN DESIRE.

IT JUST EXPAND ITS AND MAKES IT

SO GLAMOROUS AND THE BIBLE SAYS

FLEE FORNIFICATION

AND IT HAS GREAT APPEAL AND I

DON'T THINK TALKING IS GOING TO

DO THAT.

SHE SAYS SHE'S DONE THAT AND

I THINK SHE'S NAIVE TO THINK

HE'S NOT ADDICTED.

MAYBE NOT BUT SARA HE'S

ALWAYS GOING TO BE COMPARING

YOU

TO THOSE BABES THAT ARE DANCING

AROUND IN THE PORN FLICKINGS

AND

YOU DON'T WANT TO BE COMPETING

AGAINST THAT. IF I WERE YOU I

WOULD SAY GOOD BYE. IT'S FUN

BUT I CAN'T GET INTO THIS

RELATIONSHIP.

ESPECIALLY BECAUSE -- YOU'RE

RIGHT AND ESPECIALLY BECAUSE

SHE

TOLD HIM HOW SHE FEELS.

DOESN'T CARE. IT'S A KICK

FOR HIM AND FOR HER IT'S TOO

BAD. LEAVE. IT'S OKAY.

YOU'RE

NOT MARRIED. WALK AWAY. ALL

RIGHT.

THIS IS ANNIE WHO SAYS "I AM

A CHRISTIAN AND HAVEN'T

RECEIVED

THE BAPTISM AND A MEMBER OF MY

CHURCH SAYS A PERSON WILL NOT

GO

INTO THE RAPTURE" WHAT IS YOUR

THOUGHTS?

I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP

GIVING MISINFORMATION IN

CHURCH.

THERE ARE ALWAYS WELL MEANING

CHURCH MEMBERS THAT DON'T KNOW

WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

THE

RAPTURE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH

GOING TO HEAVEN. IT'S A

BLESSING FROM GOD AND HAVE

POWER

AND WITNESS FROM THE LORD

LIKE THIS AND PAUL SAID BE

FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE

RAPTURE, AND SO HOW DO YOU DO

IT? ASK, SEEK, RECEIVE. I

WANT

IT LORD. I BLESS YOU AND BEGIN

TO PRAISE GOD. ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS ONE "I WAS RAISED AS

A CATHOLIC AND THE CHURCH TEACH

THERE IS IS NO SALVATION

OUTSIDE

OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND

SOMETIMES I AM UNCOMFORTABLE

THERE AND I HAVE BEEN GOING TO

A

CHRISTIAN CHURCH WHICH I LIKE

AND I STRUGGLE NOT GOING TO

MASS

AND WILL I GO TO HELL FOR NOT

GOING?

I THINK CATHOLICS MIGHT

THINK

THAT AND IF YOU DON'T GO TO

MASS

IT'S A MORAL SIN.

I THOUGHT THEY WERE TALKING

ABOUT SALVATION AND EXPANDED

OUTSIDE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

ALONG THE WAY.

WE WERE CALLED THE MISGUIDED

BRETHREN BUT I THINK AFTER POPE

JOHN PAUL I THINK THERE WAS AN

OPENING TOWARD THE PROTESTANT

CHURCHES AND NOT AS NEAR

RESTRICTIVE BUT YEARS AGO THE

CATHOLICS WERE TAUGHT THAT THE

PROTESTANTS PRAYED TO A FALSE

GOD AND EXTREME THINGS TAUGHT

BY

PRIESTS OR OTHERS. LISTEN THE

THING ABOUT SALVATION IS TO BE

IN JESUS, TO LOVE JESUS, TO

RECEIVE JESUS, TO BE BORN AGAIN

BY THE SPIRIT OF JESUS, AND THE

CHURCH IS THE ENTIRE BODY OF

CHRIST. THE CATHOLIC MEANS

UNIVERSAL BUT TODAY THAT IS

ONLY

ONE BRANCH OF THE CHRISTIAN

RELIGION AND THERE ARE MANY

OTHERS, AND I DON'T THINK THAT

YOU NEED TO BE FEELING GUILTY

BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT STAYED

WITH

THE ONE YOU WERE IN. YOU'RE A

CATHOLIC.

I GREW UP CATHOLIC.

MY WIFE GREW UP CATHOLIC BUT

YOU GO SOMEPLACE ELSE.

YES, I DO.

SO DOES MY WIFE.

BUT IF I'M HOME I GO THERE.

I LOVE CATHOLICS AND SO

FORTH

BUT IN ANY EVENT GOD IS BIGGER

THAN THAT SO ENJOY. WHAT ELSE?

THIS IS MICHELLE WHO SAYS

"MY

DAUGHTER DIED AND LEFT A TWO

AND

A HALF YEAR OLD BOY AROUND AND

HOW DO I TELL THE CHILD IS IN

HEAVEN. I TRY TELLING HIM BUT

HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND. AM I

TELLING THE RIGHT THING BY

REPEATING IT TO HIM OR WAIT

UNTIL HE IS OLDER?

LITTLE KIDS CAN UNDERSTAND A

WHOLE LOT AND I THINK YOU NEED

TO TELL HIM AND EXPLAIN WHAT

HEAVEN IS LIKE. THEY

UNDERSTAND

ABOUT JESUS. THEY UNDERSTAND

ABOUT GOD. MOMMY IS WITH JESUS

NOW AND YOU CAN TELL HIM AND

THE

BODY AND THE SPIRIT. DON'T BE

AFRAID TO TELL THE KIDS THE

DEEPER TRUTH AND THEY CAN

UNDERSTAND A WHOLE LOT MORE.

JESUS SAID THEY'RE ANGELS AND

MY

WISHES OF HEAVEN. THEY HAVE A

LOT OF INSIGHT COMING FROM THE

HOLY SPIRIT SO DON'T BE AFRAID

TO SHARE THESE THINGS WITH HIM.

OKAY.

"MY HUSBAND HAS A PASSIVEIVE

PERSONALITY AND BREAMS ME FOR

EVERYTHING AND HE DOESN'T

UNDERSTAND AND WORKS DAY AND

NIGHT AND CHARMING IN CHURCH.

HIS BEHAVIOR MAKES ME NOT LIKE

HIM AND

HURTFUL THINGS COME OUT OF MY

MOUTH AND I BEG GOD TO FORGIVE

ME AND STOP THIS VICIOUS CYCLE

AND HOW CAN I IGNORE THE

BEHAVIOR AND SHIELD MY HEART

FROM BITTERNESS?

I THINK YOU INSIST THAT YOUR

HUSBAND GO TO COUNSELING. HE

NEEDS A PASTOR OR A

PROFESSIONAL.

VERBAL ABUSE.

IT'S TERRIBLE. HE PROBABLY

GREW

UP IN THE SITUATION LIKE THAT

AND MAYBE NOT AWARE OF IT AND

YOU CANNOT LIVE UNDER THOSE

CIRCUMSTANCES AND YOU'RE TRYING

TO SAY I AM HURT. I AM ANGRY

BUT I AM TRYING TO GET RID OF

IT. YOU SHOULDN'T BE PLACED IN

THAT SORT OF A SITUATION. YOU

HAVE TO INSIST IF I AM GOING TO

STAY WITH YOU DEAR YOU'RE GOING

TO HAVE TO GET SOME HELP. I

CAN'T TAKE THIS ANY LONGER AND

YOU'RE NOT AWARE OF WHAT YOU'RE

DOING TO ME OR WHAT IS GOING ON

IN YOUR HEART AND I THINK

UNLESS

HE ACCEPTS THAT THEN YOU CAN

TAKE A MORE DRASTIC ACTION.

WELL, THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE'VE

GOT. THANKS FOR BEING WITH US

AND WE WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE BYE
