The 700 Club - Sept. 5, 2013

Gordon Robertson takes a look at some of the medical breakthroughs that have come from Israel, including cancer and diabetes treatment and technology to help blind people see and crippled people walk. Read Transcript


THE BLIND SHALL SEE.

WE FOUND A SOLUTION.

AND THE LAME SHALL WALK.

I WAS AMAZED.

HOW ISRAELI TECHNOLOGY IS

MAKING BIBLICAL PROPHECY

COME TRUE.

NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER

OF ALL INVENTIONS.

PLUS, SHE SUFFERED

SEIZURES EVERY DAY.

IF THIS IS WHAT MY LIFE

IS GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT,

WHAT IS THE POINT IN

LIVING.

UNTIL THE POINT SHE

FOUGHT BACK.

WE BEGIN OUR ANNUAL SEVEN

DAYS OF BLAZE ON TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

WELL, SCHIZOPHRENIA REIGNS

SUPREME IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

THERE WAS A RED LINE STATED

THIS IS MY RED LINE.

NOW IT IS NOT HIS RED LINE.

IT IS THE WORLD'S RED LINE.

IT IS CONGRESS' WORLD LINE.

THIS IS THE PRESIDENT THAT

WANTED RECESS APPOINTMENTS

AND RAN AROUND CONGRESS WHEN

THEY WEREN'T IN SESSION, AND

WHO DIDN'T WANT TO SUPPORT

THE DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT,

AND WHO DON'T SUPPORT OTHER

ACTIVITIES, AND GOES

OVERSEAS AND DOES VARIOUS

THINGS, LIKE LIBYA, WITHOUT

ASKING PERMISSION.

AND SUDDENLY IT IS IM

IMPERATIVE HE HAS

CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL FOR

AN ACT AGAINST SYRIA.

I THINK BOTH PARTIES A

LITTLE DISMAYED.

Terry: WELL, THE

PRESIDENT RIGHT NOW IS OFF

TO RUSSIA FOR THE G-20

SUMMIT.

SYRIA, WHICH IS THE HOT

TOPIC IN THE NEWS ISN'T

OFFICIALLY ON THE AGENDA,

BUT IT IS EXPECTED TO BE THE

BIG TOPIC OVER THERE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: A TENSE

MOMENT FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA

TODAY AS HE FACES OFF WITH

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR

PUTIN.

PUTIN BACKS THE ASSAD

REGIME, AND SAYS THE U.S. IS

LYING ABOUT THE USE OF

CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

HE IS WARNING PRESIDENT

OBAMA NOT TO TAKE ACTION

WITHOUT U.N. APPROVAL.

ONLY THE U.N. CAN

SANCTION A PLAN.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA MONITORING THE VOTES

OF LAWMAKERS HERE AT HOME

AND CALLING FOR A STRONG

INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE.

AT THE SAME TIME, HE IS ALSO

TRYING TO STEP BACK FROM HIS

RED-LINE DECLARATION THAT

STARTED HIM ON THE PATH TO A

U.S. STRIKE.

President Obama: I

DIDN'T SET A RED LINE.

THE WORLD SET A RED LINE.

THE WORLD SET A RED LINE

WHEN GOVERNMENTS

REPRESENTING 98% OF THE

WORLD'S POPULATION SAID THE

USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS ARE

ABHORRENT, AND PASSED A

TREATY FORBIDDING THEIR USE

EVEN WHEN COUNTRIES ARE

ENGAGED IN WAR.

Reporter: THE SENATE

FOREIGN RELATIONSHIPS

COMMITTEE PASSED A

RESOLUTION THAT WOULD GIVE

THE PRESIDENT THE AUTHORITY

TO STRIKE SYRIA.

BUT IT IS STILL UNCLEAR

WHETHER IT CAN PASS THE FULL

SENATE OR HOUSE.

JOHN KERRY TRIED TO CONVINCE

HOUSE MEMBERS TO VOTE YES.

THE WORLD IS WONDERING

WHETHER THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA IS GOING TO CONSENT

THROUGH SILENCE TO STAND

ASIDE WHILE THIS KIND OF

BRUTALITY IS ALLOWED TO

HAPPEN WITHOUT CONSEQUENCE.

Reporter: THE PRESIDENT

HAS BEEN FACING CRITICISM

FOR HIS HANDLING OF THE

CRISIS IN SYRIA.

CONSERVATIVE WRITER JOHN

FUND OUTLINED OBAMA'S

HISTORY OF A, QUOTE,"PATTERN

OF INDECISIVE."

FUND WROTE IN A NATIONAL

REVIEW ONLINE, WASHINGTON IS

ABUZZ WITH TALK ABOUT HOW

MUCH PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

DAMAGED AMERICA'S

CREDIBILITY WITH HIS

INDECISIVE ON SYRIA.

AND SKEPTICISM ON CAPITOL

HILL IS COMING FROM BOTH

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS.

I DON'T BELIEVE WE SHOULD

HAVE GIVEN UP SO EASILY ON

USING THE UNITED NATIONS --

WE HAVEN'T GIVEN UP.

YES, WE HAVE.

I SEE A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY,

AND I DON'T SEE THAT OUR

INVOLVEMENT WILL LESSEN THE

TRAGEDY.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I DON'T THINK THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT TO GO

TO WAR, AND THEY CERTAINLY

DON'T WANT TO THROW CRUISE

MISSILES AT SYRIAN CITIES

WHERE CIVILIANS ARE LIVING

NOW AMONG THE MILITARY

INSTALLATIONS.

WHERE THE WAR PLANES HAVE

BEEN DISPERSED, WHERE WHO

KNOWS WHO HAS THE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS, AND WHO KNOWS WHO

IS ON THE SIDE OF AL-QAEDA

OR NOT.

THE LINES ARE SO BLURRED,

AND THAT'S WHY THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO HAVE

ANY PART OF IT.

THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

Terry: THERE SEEMS TO

BE A GREAT DEAL OF QUESTION

NOW, AS IT WAS IN THE

BEGINNING, ABOUT WHO

ACTUALLY USED THE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS.

Pat: THE CHANCES ARE

THEY HAVE ESTABLISHED THAT,

BUT EVEN SO, SO THE SYRIAN

GOVERNMENT USED IT.

OKAY, BIG DEAL.

SO CIVILIANS WERE INJURED.

SO FINE.

SO HOW ARE YOU GOING TO

PUNISH -- ARE YOU GOING TO

THROW A SHOT ACROSS THE

BOW?

THAT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING BUT

SPLASH WATER.

ASSAD HAS HAD PLENTY OF TIME

NOW TO MOVE HIS CHEMICALS,

MOVE HIS WEAPONS, MOVE HIS

AIRPLANES, HIDE HIS

FACILITIES IN THE MIDDLE OF

CIVILIAN POPULATION.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO HURT

HIM?

WHO WILL WE HURT?

WE'LL HURT INNOCENT SYRIAN

CIVILIANS.

THAT IS WHO WILL BE THE

SUBJECT OF OUR BOMBING.

IT MAKES NO SENSE.

AND THEN THEY TALK ABOUT

BOOTS ON THE GROUND.

IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 75,000

AMERICAN TROOPS TO SECURE

THOSE CHEMICAL WEAPONS,

MAYBE.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT

I AM WAR WEARY.

HERE AT HOME, THE NATIONAL

SECURITY AGENCY IS FACING A

MAJOR LAWSUIT OVER ONE OF

ITS DOMESTIC SPYING

PROGRAMS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PAT, THE

NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION

HAS JOINED IN A LAWSUIT

AGAINST THE NATIONAL

SECURITY AGENCY.

THE GUN OWNER'S LOBBY FILED

A BRIEF IN A SUIT AGAINST AN

N.S.A. SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM

THAT COLLECTS PHONE

RECORDS.

THE N.R.A. SAYS THE PROGRAM

IS ESSENTIALLY IS DEVELOPING

A NATIONAL GUN REGISTRY,

SOMETHING THAT CONGRESS HAS

REPEATEDLY REJECTOR.

AND THEY WARN THE PROGRAM

VIOLATES AMERICANS

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO

FREE SPEECH.

THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES

UNION FILED THE ORIGINAL

SUIT, AND SEVERAL NEWS

ORGANIZATIONS HAVE JOINED

IN.

CONSERVATIVE ACTIVISTS ARE

PUSHING FOR REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS TO STOP THE FUNDING

OF OBAMACARE, AND ANALYSTS

WARN IT WILL MEAN HIGHER

PRICES FOR HEALTH CARE.

PAUL STRAND HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: CONSERVATIVE

CRITICS SAY MOST REPUBLICAN

LAWMAKERS REFUSE TO STRIP

OBAMACARE'S FUNDING.

HE HAS THE MAJORITY IN

THE HOUSE.

AND HE NEEDS TO DO THAT

WHICH HE PLEDGED TO DO,

WHICH IS TO DEFUND IT.

Reporter: SOON THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL GET HIT

BY OBAMACARE'S EXTREMELY

CONTROVERSIAL INDIVIDUAL

MANDATE, WHICH WILL FORCE

THEM TO BUY HEALTH CARE

INSURANCE ARE PAY A

PENALTY.

MIKE CANNER OF THE KATO

INSTITUTE SAYS THAT MAPPED

THAT MANDATE WILL TAKE AWAY

COMPETITION.

IMAGINE ANY PRODUCT,

WHETHER YOU'RE GOING TO BUY

TWINKIES.

AND YOU'RE ORDERED BY THE

GOVERNMENT, YOU MUST BUY A

TWI TWINKIE NO MATTER WHAT

THE PRICE, AND THAT DRIVES

UP PRICES.

Reporter: CANNER WARNS

OBAMACARE INCREASINGLY PUTS

GOVERNMENT IN CARE OF HEALTH

CARE, AND THAT IS MORE

DANGEROUS.

MORE AND MORE CHOICES ARE

GOING TO BE TAKEN AWAY FROM

CONSUMERS.

IF SOMEONE ELSE DECIDES WHAT

THOSE SERVICES ARE GOING TO

BE, WHAT THOSE GOODS ARE

GOING TO BE, ABOUT HOW MUCH

YOU CAN HAVE, ABOUT WHAT

THEY COST, THAT IS NOT A

GOOD RECIPE.

THAT'S WHAT BASIC MANY MADE

EASTERN EUROPE COLLAPSE.

Reporter: SPEAKERS AT

THIS UNION POINTED OUT SO

MANY ARE AFRAID OF OBAMACARE

THAT THEY'RE TRYING TO GET

EXEMPTIONS WHERE THEY'VE

ALREADY GOTTEN THEM.

THE PRESIDENTS OF LABOR

UNIONS SAY THIS WILL DESTROY

THEIR 40-HOUR WORK WEEK.

THE UNIONS DON'T WANT TO

HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

IT.

IT IS SUCH BAD NEWS THAT

ERIC CANTOR AND THE REST OF

CONGRESS HAVE EXALTED

THEMSELVES FROM IT.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

MAIN MESSAGES HERE IS THAT

SOME OF THE BIGGEST PARTS OF

OBAMACARE ARE ABOUT TO KICK

IN, AND THIS IS THE

REPUBLICANS LAST BEST CHANCE

TO DEFUND IT.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM RICHMOND,

VIRGINIA.

Reporter: THE NEW

METHODS OF PRODUCING OIL AND

NATURAL GAS HERE IN THE

CROSS CALLED FRACKING ARE

GOOD FOR YOUR POCKETBOOK.

A NEW STUDY FINDS THE OIL

AND GAS BOOM HAS BOOSTED THE

INCOMES OF THE AVERAGE

HOUSEHOLD BY 1200 BECAUSE OF

ELECTRICITY AND HEATING.

AND THAT IS EXPECTED TO GO

UP $2,000 BY 2016.

AND THE ENERGY BOOM HAS

BROUGHT IN NEARLY

$75 BILLION TO FEDERAL AND

STATE REVENUES.

WELL, A GROWING NUMBER OF

AMERICANS ARE FINDING A NEW

WAY TO READ THE BIBLE, ON

THE INTERNET.

ACCORDING TO A SURVEY FOR

THE AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY,

41% READ THE BIBLE ON A

COMPUTER IN THE LAST YEAR.

29% SEARCHED IT ON A CELL

PHONE.

AND 17% READ IT ON

AN eREADER, LIKE A KINDLE

OR iPAD.

BUT 85% OF THOSE WHO READ

THE BIBLE SAY THEY PREFER A

PRINT VERSION.

69% OF ADULTS CONSIDER

THEMSELVES KNOWLEDGEABLE

ABOUT THE BIBLE.

PAT, WHERE DO YOU FIND.

ARE YOU THE TWO THAT READ IT

ONLINE OR DO YOU PREFER HARD

COPY?

Pat: I'M A FAN OF

KINDLE.

I READ BOOKS VORACIOUSLY.

I HAVE A HUGE GROUP OF BOOKS

I READ ON KINDLE.

I REALLY LIKE READING OFF A

KINDLE.

I READ VERY QUICKLY.

AS FAR AS THE BIBLE, I WANT

A GREAT BIG BIBLE WITH ALL

KINDS OF NOTES AND THINGS,

AND I CAN TAKE MY TIME AND

SORT OF CHEW ON IT.

Terry: I'M FOR THE HARD

COPY, TOO.

Pat: HEY, IF THEY'RE

READING IT ONLINE, GOD BLESS

THEM.

THAT'S GOOD NEWS.

Terry: COMING UP, A

BIONIC EYE, A BREATHALYZER

TO DETECT CANCER, AND A

DEVICE THAT HELPS

PARAPLEGICS RUN MARATHONS.

WHAT DO THEY ALL HAVE IN

COMMON?

I'LL FIND OUT WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

JEWS AROUND THE WORLD

CELEBRATED ROSH HASHANAH

LAST NIGHT AT SUNDOWN, AND

WE DID AS WELL HERE AT CBN.

WE PACKED THE REGENT CHAP

PE CHAPEL FOR A LIVE

CONCERT, AND KICKED OFF OUR

SEVEN DAYS OF BLAZE

CELEBRATION.

WE WANT TO SHARE SOME OF THE

HIGHLIGHTS WITH YOU.

*

Reporter: LAST NIGHT,

IN A NEW REGENT CHAPEL, THE

SOUND OF THE SHOFA SIGNALLED

THE BEGINNING OF A NEW

YEAR.

Gordon: ROSH HASHANAH

IS TO REMIND US THE PROMISES

OF GOD ARE YES AND AMEN.

AND THEY ARE STILL FOR US.

AS CHRISTIANS, THERE IS NO

REASON FOR US TO EVER

DISPAIR.

ROSH HASHANAH IS ALSO A

TURNING, WHERE YOU TURN FROM

THE PREVIOUS BAD YEAR AND

LOOK FORWARD TO GOD'S

BLESSING IN THE NEW YEAR.

*

* YOU ARE GLORIOUS

Reporter: WORSHIP

LEADER PAUL WILBUR LED MUCH

OF THE ROSH HASHANAH

CELEBRATION, WHICH WAS

FILLED WITH SINGING.

Reporter: DANCING

DANCING...AND PRAYER.

WE BLESS ISRAEL.

AND WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD

CAUSE YOUR FACE TO SHINE

UPON HER.

AND TO GIVE HER SHALOM.

*

* OUT OF ZION

Reporter: THOSE WHO

CAME EXPERIENCED A WONDERFUL

NIGHT OF REJOICING AND

GIVING THANKS TO GOD FOR A

JOYFUL NEW YEAR.

[CHEERING]

*

GLORY *

Terry: TO SEE MORE OF

OUR ROSH HASHANAH

CELEBRATION, WE HAVE A

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK ON

CBN.COM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK

UP THE "IN THE GREEN ROOM"

LINK, AND THROUGHOUT THIS

WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT WEEK,

WE'RE GOING TO BE SHOWING

YOU MIRACULOUS STORIES AND

BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS SPECIFICALLY.

WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO

THAT THROUGHOUT THE WEEK.

Pat: ROSH HASHANAH.

IN HEBREW, ROSH IS HEAD, AND

IT IS THE HEAD OF THE YEAR.

IT IS THE BEGINNING OF THE

AGRICULTURAL YEAR IN THE

HEBREW CALENDAR, AND IT

LEADS SHORTLY INTO THE DAY

OF THE ATONEMENT AND THE

FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

I WAS ASKED WHY ARE YOU

MAKING SUCH A BIG DEAL OF

THIS?

WELL, WE THINK IT SPEAKS OF

THE FINAL HARVEST OF PEOPLE

IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

IT IS THE ONLY FEAST OF THE

OLD TESTAMENT THAT DOES NOT

HAVE A NEW TESTAMENT

FULFILLMENT.

THE REASON IS BECAUSE IT

SPEAKS OF THE END.

IT SPEAKS OF THE FINAL

HARVEST.

AND THAT'S WHY WE TALK A LOT

ABOUT ROSH HASHANAH AND

THESE DAYS THAT FOLLOW.

WELL, LOOKING AT THE OLD

TESTAMENT, THE BOOK OF THE

PROPHET ISAIAH, IT SAID THAT

HE WAS OFTEN CALLED THE

FIFTH GOSPEL.

HE TALKS ABOUT A TIME WHEN

THE EYES OF THE BLIND WILL

BE OPENED AND THE LAME WILL

LEAP LIKE A DEER.

WELL, THEY HAPPENED, OF

COURSE, OCCASIONALLY IN THE

MINISTRY OF JESUS.

BUT TODAY THESE WORDS ARE

COMING TRUE ON A MUCH LARGER

SCALE, THANKS TO SOME

REMARKABLE MEDICAL

BREAKTHROUGHS BY ISRAELI

DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS.

ON JANUARY 8, 2011, A

GUNMAN OPENED FIRE IN

TUCSON, ARIZONA.

HIS TARGET WAS CONGRESSWOMAN

GABRIELLE GIFFORDS, WHO WAS

SHOT IN THE HEAD AT

POINT-BLANK RANGE.

TO STOP THE BLEEDING,

E.M.S.s USED A SPECIAL

BANDAGE THAT PUTS PRESSURE

ON WOUNDS AND PREVENTS

INFECTION.

FIRST RESPONDERS SAID THE

BANDAGE SAVED GIFFORD'S

LIFE.

IT IS ONE OF MANY MEDICAL

BREAKTHROUGHS THAT GOT ITS

START IN ISRAEL.

OUR LIFE EXPECTANCY HERE

IS ABOUT FOUR YEARS LONGER

THAN THE U.S.

SO IF ANYONE WANTS TO COME

MOVE TO ISRAEL, ON AVERAGE,

YOU'RE GOING TO ADD FOUR

YEARS TO YOUR LIFE.

Gordon: FROM FIGHTING

CANCER TO GIVING SIGHT TO

THE BLIND TO MAKING THE LAME

WALK AGAIN, ISRAEL IS

LEADING THE WORLD IN MEDICAL

INNOVATION.

EVERY DAY MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS USE SOME KIND OF

MEDICAL TREATMENT THAT CAME

FROM ISRAEL.

FROM SANBUCOL, A COLD AND

FLU MEDICATION, TO

AMNIOCENTESIS.

THERE IS A WIRELESS LASER

THAT WILL SOME DAY REPLACE

THE DENTIST DRILL.

AND THE PILL CAM.

A TINY CAMERA IN A CAPSULE.

IT TAKES PICTURES FROM

INSIDE YOUR COLON,

ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR A

COLONOSCOPY.

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS OF THESE PROCEDURES

WERE DONE EVERY YEAR.

WHAT IF YOU CAN MAKE THEM

PAIN FREE AND TAKE A LOT OF

THE RISK OUT OF THAT

PROCEDURE.

THAT IS A CLASSIC ISRAELI

SOLUTION TO A PROBLEM.

Gordon: IN THE FIELD OF

MEDICINE, FINDING A CURE FOR

CANCER IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

GOALS.

AND ALTHOUGH A FULL CURE IS

STILL IN THE FUTURE, ISRAELI

SCIENTISTS ARE MAKING HUGE

ADVANCES.

THE NEWS IS FULL OF STORIES

ABOUT DOGS WHO CAN SMELL

EVERYTHING FROM EPILEPSY TO

CANCER IN THEIR OWNERS.

SO ONE SCIENTIST TOOK THAT

IDEA AND REFINED IT.

THE DOGS CAN SMELL

CANCER, WE FOR SURE CAN DO

IT IN A LITTLE MORE

SOPHISTICATED WAY.

WE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH A

DEVICE MUCH BETTER THAN WE

CAN COMMUNICATE WITH A DOG.

Gordon: HASAM HITE

DEVELOPED A EARLY WARNING

SYSTEM FOR CANCER.

THE NANO ARTIFICIAL NOSE CAN

DETECT TUMORS BEFORE THEY'RE

EVEN VISIBLE ON X-RAYS, JUST

BY ANALYZING A PATIENT'S

BREATH.

THE DEVICE CAN GIVE THE

RESULTS WITHIN FIVE MINUTES

TO ONE HOUR, MORE OR LESS.

MANY OF THE DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS

REQUIRES SWALLOWING A

RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL IN

ORDER TO MAKE THE NOSE

POSSIBLE.

WE DON'T EXPOSE IT TO ANY

RISKY X-RAYS OR BEAMS THAT

MIGHT MAKE CANCER BY

THEMSELVES.

Gordon: THE ARTIFICIAL

NOSE IS THE STILL IN

CLINICAL TRIALS, WHERE THE

ACCURACY RATES RAGE FROM 86%

TO 97%.

AND IT IS ALSO BEING

CUSTOMIZED TO SNIFF OUT

OTHER DISEASES AS WELL, LIKE

ALZHEIMER'S, PARKINSON'S,

AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

OUR ULTIMATE VISION TO

BRING THIS DEVICE IN A VERY

AFFORDABLE WAY

TO EVERYBODY,

WHETHER THESE PEOPLE LIVE IN

THE WESTERN COUNTRIES OR

THEY LIVE ELSEWHERE, BECAUSE

WE BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE TO

FULFILL A LITTLE BIT OF

DEMOCRACY.

Gordon: OTHER ISRAELI

SCIENTISTS ARE FOCUSING ON

THE TREATMENT OF CANCER, AND

THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING

FROM BURNING TUMORS WITH

THERMAL HEAT, TO FREEZING

THEM WITH LIQUID NYGEN.

NITROGEN.

ONE DOCTOR IS EVEN

DEVELOPING A VACCINE FOR

CANCER.

IT TRAINS THE BODY'S IMMUNE

CELL TO ATTACK A SPECIFIC

MOLECULE FOUND ONLY IN

CANCER.

AND SINCE ONLY THE CANCER

CELLS ARE TARGETED, THE

VACCINE HAS NO SIDE EFFECTS,

LIKE CHEMICAL MOW OR

RADIATION.

WITH ONE SHOT EVERY FEW

MONTHS, THE BODY'S IMMUNE

SYSTEM WILL KEEP IT UNDER

CONTROL.

WE ARE EDUCATING THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM TO DO WHAT IT

WOULD TRY TO DO ITSELF.

WE'RE NOT I INVENTING

ANYTHING.

Gordon: IN THE FIRST

CLINICAL TRIAL, THE VACCINE

SUCCESSFULLY TRIGGERED THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM IN ALL 15

PATIENTS.

YOU WILL SEE IN THE

FUTURE, I THINK WE ENTER A

FIELD WHICH IS VERY

ATTRACTIVE, AND WE JUST

SCRATCHED THE BEGINNING OF

IT.

I THINK WE HAVE A LOT MORE

THINGS TO COME.

AND I'M VERY ENCOURAGED BY

WHAT I'VE SEEN.

Gordon: IN 1829 THE

INTRODUCTION OF BRAILLE

REVOLUTIONIZED THE WAY BLIND

PEOPLE READ AND WRITE.

TODAY ISRAELI

INVENTORS ARE

TAKING THAT REVOLUTION A

STEP FURTHER.

FOR PEOPLE WITH LIMITED

SIGHT, THERE IS A NEW DEVICE

CALLED THE ORCAM.

IT IS A POCKET-SIZED

COMPUTER LINKED TO A SMALL

CAMERA THAT IS CLIPPED ON TO

YOUR GLASSES.

THE CAMERA SEES WHAT YOU

SEE.

WHEN YOU POINT YOUR FINGER

AT SOMETHING, THE ORCAM WILL

READ IT FOR YOU.

EVERYTHING FROM ME MENUS TO

STREET SIGNS.

FOR THOSE WITH TOTAL VISION

LOSS, THERE IS PROJECT RAY,

THE FIRST EVER SMARTPHONE

FOR THE BLIND.

WITH THE TAP OF A FINGER,

USERS CAN MAKE PHONE CALLS,

SEND TEXTS, AND EVEN SEARCH

THE WEB.

WHILE THESE INVENTIONS ARE

GIVING BLIND PEOPLE MORE

INDEPENDENCE, ANOTHER ONE IS

ACTUALLY RESTORING THEIR

SIGHT.

A COMPANY CALLED NANO RETINA

IS FOCUSING ON PEOPLE WHO

HAVE LOST THEIR SIGHT FROM

MACULAR DEGENERATION.

THEY HAVE CREATED THE BIONIC

EYE.

AN IMPLANT THAT PROVIDES

USERS WITH GREY SCALE

VISION, A BIG IMPROVEMENT

OVER TOTAL BLINDNESS.

THE NECESSITY IS THE

MOTHER OF ALL INVENTIONS.

AND ISRAELIS SOMETIMES TEND

TO THINK OUTSIDE OF THE

BOX.

AND IF THERE IS AN OBSTACLE,

WE DO NOT HIT OUR FOREHEAD

AT THE OBSTACLE, BUT WE GO

AROUND IT.

WE FIND A SOLUTION.

Gordon: ONE OF THOSE

SOLUTIONS IS GIVING NEW LIFE

TO PEOPLE WHO WERE TOLD THEY

WERE NEVER WALK AGAIN.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY

WHEELCHAIRS ARE THE ONLY

SOLUTION FOR PARALYZED

PEOPLE.

Gordon: IN 1997 A MEAT

GOPHER WAS PARALYZED IN A

CAR ACCIDENT, AND SINCE THEN

HE HAS BEEN ON A MISSION, TO

PUT THE WHEELCHAIR OUT OF

BUSINESS.

SO HE DESIGNED SOMETHING

CALLED THE RE-WALK.

A BRACE THAT USES MOTORS TO

HELP PARAPLEGICS WALK AND

EVEN DRIVE A CAR.

HE COULDN'T USE HIS ON

INVENTION SINCE HE IS A

QUADRIPLEGIC, AND THE DEVICE

INVOLVES THE USE OF THE

ARMS.

BUT HE SOON FOUND A VETERAN

WHO WAS MORE THAN WILLING TO

TRY IT.

WHEN THE DOCTOR TOLD ME

THAT I'M LUCKY TO BE ALIVE

BUT MY INJURY WOULD LEAVE ME

PARALYZED, EVERYTHING BECAME

DARK.

Gordon: RODDY IS A

FORMER ISRAELI PARATROOPER

HAD WAS INJURED IN SOUTH

LEBANON.

IN ONE OF THE

REHABILITATION CENTERS IN

ISRAELI, I MET AHMED.

HE SAID HE DEVELOPED A

DEVICE THAT HELPS A

PARAPLEGIC IN MY CONDITION

TO WALK.

I DIDN'T BELIEVE I WOULD BE

ABLE TO STAND UP.

AFTER I TRIED IT, AND THE

DEVICE MADE ME STAND UP, I

WAS AMAZED.

MY DAUGHTER WAS THREE YEARS

OLD BACK THEN.

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID,

DAD, YOU ARE TALL.

THAT MADE MY DAY.

THE BOTTOM THING IS FOR

THE FAMILIES, IT IS

EXCITING.

THEY SEE THEIR LOVED ONE CAN

DO IT, AND THEN YOU WANT TO

CRY.

Gordon: RODDY STARTED

USING THE RE-WALK SIX YEARS

AGO, AND SINCE THEN, THE

DEVICE HAS GONE GLOBAL.

IN 2012, A YOUNG WOMAN NAMED

CLAIRE LOMAN USED THE

RE-WALK IN THE LONDON

MARATHON.

SHE WALKED THE 26 MILES IN

17 DAYS, EARNING HER THE

NICKNAME BIONIC WOMAN.

IT IS SOMETHING I WILL

TREASURE THE REST OF MY

LIFE.

DANCE FOUR TIMES A WEEK.

AND I LOVE IT VERY MUCH.

AND I KNEW I'M NOT GOING TO

STOP JUST BECAUSE I'M

DIABETIC.

Gordon: SHI IS A

DANCER, A STUDENT, AND A

TYPE 1 DIABETIC.

SHE IS ALSO A PIONEER.

SHI IS ONE OF THE FIRST

PEOPLE TO TRY A NEW MEDICAL

DEVICE, THE ARTIFICIAL

PANCREAS.

IT IS STILL IN THE

EXPERIMENTAL STAGE, AND

RIGHT NOW IT IS JUST A

LAPTOP WITH A SERIES OF

SENSORS THAT MONITOR THE

PATIENT'S BLOOD SUGAR.

EVENTUALLY IT WILL BE

REPLACED BY A MICROCHIP AND

AN INSULIN PUMP.

THIS DR. IS ON DOCTOR IS

ONE OF THE DEVELOPERS.

I PROMISED MY PATIENTS

ONE DAY WE'LL GET RID OF THE

DIABETES.

WE ARE NOT ABLE TO CURE THE

DIABETES YET, BUT WE WOULD

LIKE TO ENABLE OUR PATIENTS

TO LIVE THEIR LIFE WITHOUT

THINKING OF THEIR DIABETES

ALL OF THE TIME.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND TYPE

1 DIABETES, ESPECIALLY

DURING CHILDHOOD, IS

SOMETHING THAT KEEPS YOU

BUSY THE ENTIRE DAY.

Reporter: DR. PHILIP

OVERSAW CLINICAL TRIALS FOR

CHILDREN IN ISRAEL, SLOVENIA

, BUT HE WAS TH SHI WAS THE

FIRST ONE TO USE THE DEVICE

AT HOME WITHOUT

SUPERVISION.

EACH TIME MY LEVELS DROP,

IT GIVES ME A VERY, VERY

STRONG ALARM, AND IT TELLS

ME I HAVE TO EAT RIGHT

AWAY.

IF MY LEVELS GO REALLY HIGH,

IT FIXES MY LEVEL.

IT CALCULATES ITSELF HOW

MUCH INSULIN TO TAKE, AND IT

GIVES AN AUTOMATIC ORDER TO

MY PUMP TO GIVE ME THAT

INSULIN.

AND I'M MORE BALANCED, EVEN

MORE BALANCED THAN I WAS

WHEN I WENT TO SLEEP.

THAT IS AMAZING.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO

CHANGE THE LIFE OF OUR

PATIENTS.

AND THIS IS THE ENTIRE IDEA,

TO BRING BACK THE

SPONTANEITY TO OUR PATIENTS,

THE FREEDOM FROM BEING BUSY

WITH THINKING ABOUT HOW TO

CONTROL THE BLOOD GLUCOSE

LEVELS ALL OF THE TIME, AND

ESPECIALLY DURING THE

NIGHT.

I FEEL THERE IS SO MUCH

EFFORT MADE TO HELP THE

DIABETIC.

I FEEL LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT?

YOU HAVE THIS DISEASE, BUT

WE'RE TRYING TO CURE IT.

WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE THE

TREATMENTS BETTER, MORE

COMFORTABLE, AND WE'LL GET

THERE.

THE FEELING THAT I HELPED

OTHER PEOPLE TOO, IT GIVES

ME THE STRENGTH TO KEEP ON.

IF I AM A PART OF SOMETHING

BIG, I FEEL THAT I'M NOT

ALONE IN THIS BUSINESS.

AND IT GIVES YOU A LOT OF

HOPE.

Pat: TERRY, IT IS

AMAZING.

Terry: REMARKABLE,

REALLY.

WHO KNEW?

I HADN'T EVEN HEARD OF SOME

OF THESE, HAVE YOU?

Pat: NO.

Terry: ALL COMING OUT

OF ISRAEL.

Pat: PERSECUTED,

SURRENDERED BY ENEMIES,

VILIFIED, NATION AFTER

NATION, AND YET THEY'RE

GOING TO BE A BLESSING TO

THE WORLD.

I LOVE IT.

Terry: I DO, TOO.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT

THESE ISRAELI ADVANCES BY

GOING TO A SPECIAL SECTION

THAT IS ON OUR WEBSITE.

JUST LOG ON TO cbn.com,

AND YOU'LL FIND ALL OF THE

INFORMATION YOU NEED THERE.

TOMORROW WE'RE GOING TO SHOW

YOU HOW THE JEWISH STATE HAS

GONE GREEN AND ATTRACTED THE

ATTENTION OF SCIENTISTS FROM

AROUND THE WORLD.

AMAZING STORIES.

WELL, UP NEXT A 2-YEAR-OLD'S

FALL LEADS TO 27 YEARS OF

SEIZURES.

HEAR HOW SHE WAS SET FREE

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: WE'RE IN DAY ONE

OF OUR ANNUAL SEVEN DAYS OF

BLAZE CELEBRATION.

IF YOU'RE A CBN PARTNER, YOU

SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED A

LETTER IN THE MAIL.

WE WANT YOU TO WRITE YOUR

PRAYER REQUEST ON IT.

SEND IT BACK TO US, AND

WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU

DURING OUR PROGRAM.

IF YOU'RE NOT A CBN PARTNER,

JUST GIVE US A CALL.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700, AND TELL US

WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE PRAYER

FOR AND WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO

PRAY FOR YOU DURING THIS

TIME AS WELL.

FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS,

CHRISTINE SHEETS HAD THE

SAME PRAYER REQUEST, SHE

WANTED TO BE HEALED FROM HER

EEPILEPTIC SEIZURES.

SHE WAS RUNNING OUT OF

OPTIONS, UNTIL SHE SAT DOWN

IN FRONT OF THE TV ONE DAY,

AND WATCHED A FAMILIAR

SHOW.

Reporter: FOR MORE THAN

TWO DECADES, 34-YEAR-OLD

CHRISTINE SHEETS WAS A

PRISONER OF EPILEPSY AND

GRANDMAL SEIZURES.

THE CONDITION CONTROLLED

MY LIFE.

I COULDN'T BE LEFT ALONE

BECAUSE IT WAS TOO

DANGEROUS.

Reporter: THE SEIZURES

STARTED WHEN SHE WAS TWO.

AFTER A PHOTO SHOOT OF HER

ON A HORSE ENDED TERRIBLY

WRONG.

THE CAMERA SPOOKED THE

HORSE, AND I FELL AND HIT MY

HEAD.

THE DOCTORS SAID I WAS

EPILEPTIC.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

TRIED TREATING CHRISTINE

WITH ANTI-SEIZURE

MEDICATION, BUT SHE COULDN'T

TOLERATE THEM.

FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS, SHE

HAD SMALL, PEDIMAL SEIZURES,

AND THEN AT AGE 13, SHE TOOK

A TURN FOR THE WORSE.

DUE TO MY HORMONES, I HAD

GRANDMAL SEIZURES, AND THE

DOCTORS TRIED TO TREAT ME

AGAIN WITH MEDICINE, AND IT

FAILED.

Reporter: THE NUMBER OF

THE SEIZURES INCREASED, AND

CHRISTINE SAYS THAT THE

ABUSE SHE ENDURED IN SCHOOL

MADE THINGS FAR WORSE.

I WAS VERBALLY ABUSED ON

A DAILY BASIS.

THEY TOLD ME I WOULD NEVER

GET MARRIED.

NO ONE WOULD EVER WANT TO BE

FRIENDS WITH ME.

AND THEY USED TO CALL ME

LITTLE SEIZURES.

I WOULD GO INTO THE BATHROOM

AND TAKE A KNIFE AND CUT

MYSELF.

SOMETIMES IT GAVE ME A

LITTLE SENSE OF RELIEF,

INSTEAD OF HAVING IT ALL

BOTTLED UP INSIDE ME.

Reporter: ON AT LEAST

TWO OCCASIONS, CHRISTINE

ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.

I REMEMBER THINKING, IF

THIS IS WHAT MY LIFE IS

GOING TO BE ABOUT, WHAT IS

THE POINT OF LIVING.

Reporter: BY 20,

CHRISTINE WAS TOTAL THE

DEPEND ON HER MOTHER, AND

HER SEIZURES WERE GETTING

WORSE.

SO IN 2000, CHRISTINE UNDER

WENT A RADICAL SURGERY TO

REMOVE PART OF THE FRONT

TEMPORAL LOBE FROM HER

BRAIN.

THAT OPERATION, ALONG WITH

SOME NEW MEDICINES REDUCED

THE NUMBER OF SEIZURES SHE

WOULD HAVE OVER THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS.

UNFORTUNATELY, WHILE SHE WAS

ON THE OPERATING TABLE,

CHRISTINE HAD A STROKE,

WHICH LEFT HER WITH SOME

SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS.

BEFORE I WENT THROUGH

PHYSICAL THERAPY, THE WHOLE

ENTIRE LEFT SIDE OF MY BODY

WAS PARTIALLY PARALYZED, AND

I WAS UNABLE TO WALK.

AND I WAS LEFT WITH

EXCRUCIATING PAIN BASICALLY

24/7.

AND IT STROKE ALSO CUT OFF

MY PERIPHERAL VISION.

Reporter: AND NOW

CHRISTINE HAD TO SPEND MOST

OF HER TIME INDOORS, READING

AND WATCHING TV.

"THE 700 CLUB" WAS A

FAVORITE PROGRAM.

I WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" FOR YEARS, AND THERE

WAS A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE AN

INJURY RELATED TO A HORSE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT IT

IS, BUT GOD IS HEALING IT

FOR YOU.

I LEAPED UP OUT OF MY

CHAIR AND STARTED PRAISING

THE LORD THAT I WOULD BE

SEIZURE-FREE.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

30 DAYS, CHRISTINE DIDN'T

HAVE A SINGLE SEIZURE.

THEN IT HAPPENED, SHE HAD

ANOTHER GRANDMAL.

THIS TIME, THOUGH, SHE CHOSE

TO FIGHT BACK.

I FOUGHT OFF THE LIES

THAT SAID YOU'RE NOT FREE.

AND I CHOSE TO BELIEVE THAT

BY HIS WOUNDS AND STRIPES, I

AM HEALED.

Reporter: FROM THAT

DAY, CHRISTINE SHEETS NEVER

HAD ANOTHER SEIZURE.

SHE CONTINUED TAKING HER

MEDICINE UNTIL HER DOCTOR

WEANED HER FROM IT, BUT SHE

HAS NOW BEEN SEIZURE-FREE

FOR THE PAST SEVEN YEARS.

AND THE SIDE EFFECTS FROM

HER STROKE ARE GONE AS

WELL.

WHILE SHE STILL LIVES WITH

HER MOM, CHRISTINE NOW

ENJOYS LONG WALKS WITH HER

DOG, AND DRIVING, SOMETHING

SHE ALWAYS DREAMED OF

DOING.

BEING ABLE TO DRIVE IS

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO KNOW THAT

I AM ABLE TO GO OUT AND BE

BY MYSELF AND LIVE A NORMAL,

HAPPY, FREE LIFE.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

RECENTLY PUT THE FINISHING

TOUCHES ON A NEW BOOK,

FILLED WITH ENCOURAGEMENT

FOR THOSE WALKING THROUGH

LIFE'S TRIALS.

SHE HAS A PART-TIME JOB AS

AN ORDAINED MINISTER, AND

LOVES TALKING WITH PEOPLE

ABOUT WHAT GOD CAN DO THEM

FOR PEOPLE.

GOD HAS DONE MIRACLES FOR

ME, AND I KNOW HE WILL DO

THEM FOR OTHERS AS WELL.

Terry: WE SERVE A

MIRACLE-WORKING GOD, AND

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR

CHRISTINE, HE WILL DO FOR

YOU.

Pat: DOCTORS ACTUALLY

MADE IT WORSE.

SHE HAD A STROKE ON THE

OPERATING TABLE.

HERE ARE SOME PRAYER

REQUESTS.

WE HAVE BEFORE US THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE -- NOT PEOPLE, BUT

REQUESTS FROM PEOPLE.

VERY SERIOUS.

HERE IS A WIDOW WHO SAYS, I

NEED TO KEEP MY HOME OF 50

YEARS.

FORECLOSURE -- I DON'T KNOW

WHAT IS GOING ON, BUT SHE

NEEDS FINANCIAL HELP.

HERE IS SOMEBODY WHO HAS

BREAST CANCER.

AND THEY SAY PRAY FOR ME.

AND SOMEBODY SAYS I NEED A

SON TO BE DELIVERED FROM

DRUG ADDICTION.

THAT SUMS IT UP, FINANCIAL

PROBLEMS, HEALTH PROBLEMS,

FAMILY PROBLEMS.

Terry: THIS IS A WOMAN

SAYING MY HUSBAND NEEDS TO

BE DELIVERED FROM ANGER AND

REBELLION AFTER HIS FATHER'S

DEATH.

SOMEONE ELSE SAYING I NEED A

FINANCIAL MIRACLE SO I CAN

PROVIDE FOR MY TWO

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.

AND ANOTHER PERSON SAYING, I

NEED A JOB AND A CAR,

PRACTICAL, EVERYDAY NEEDS.

Pat: AS I WAS WATCHING

CHRISTINE, HAVING HEALTH --

IT IS A BIG THRILL TO DRIVE

A CAR.

WE TAKE ALL OF THESE THINGS

FOR GRANTED.

WE NEED TO BE SO GRATEFUL

FOR WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN US.

I AM GRATEFUL TO THE LORD.

NOW, LISTEN, FOLKS, WHATEVER

YOUR NEED IS RIGHT NOW,

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN WITH THE

THOUSANDS OF THOSE WHO SENT

IN THESE REQUESTS.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER AND

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

FOR YOU.

FATHER, PLEASE ACCEPT OUR

THANKS.

THANK YOU FOR HEALTH.

THANK YOU FOR LIBERTY.

THANK YOU FOR FREEDOM.

THANK YOU FOR PROPERITY.

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE

BLESSINGS OF GOD THAT ARE

SHOWERED UPON US.

FORGIVE OUR MURMURING,

FORGIVE DISPAIR THAT COMES

UPON US.

WE BELIEVE GOD, AND NOTHING

IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU.

THERE IS SOMEBODY IN THIS

AUDIENCE WHO HAS A THYROID

IMBALANCE, AND IT IS CAUSING

ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS.

WEIGHT GAIN AND ALL OF THE

REST OF IT.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS TOUCHING

YOUR THYROID.

IT IS LIKE BURNING OUT A

GROWTH THAT IS THERE AND

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE OCULAR PROBLEMS,

AND THE PROGNOSIS IS NOT

GOOD, GOD KNOWS YOUR NEED

AND IS TOUCHING YOU TODAY.

RECEIVE IT.

Pat: THERE IS LIKE A

PARALYZED ARM, AND IT IS

LIKE HANGING AT YOUR SIDE.

GOD IS JUST TOUCHING YOU.

YOU'LL FEEL ELECTRICITY

GOING THROUGH YOUR ARM.

JUST TOUCH IT NOW, AND IN

THE NAME OF JESUS, RECEIVE

IT.

LORD, FOR THESE WHO HAVE

WRITTEN TO US AND ASKED FOR

PRAYER, EVEN AS THEIR HEART

IS GOING OUT TO YOU, YOUR

HEART IS GOING OUT TO THEM.

LORD, HEAR THEIR PRAYER, AND

TOUCH THEM IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, RECEIVE AN ANSWER.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WHEW!

CALL US, WE CAN PRAY FOR

YOU.

AS TERRY SAID EARLIER, YOU

CAN WRITE IN.

WE'LL BE HERE FOR A FEW DAYS

ON THIS EDITION OF OUR

"SEVEN DAYS OF BLAZE."

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

SMALL QUESTION FOR YOU:

WHAT'S THE PURPOSE OF LIFE?

I DON'T KNOW.

LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST AND

BE HAPPY.

I FEEL LIKE THE PURPOSE

IN LIFE IS TO FIND ONE.

Terry: IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING FOR AN ANSWER,

TAKE HEART.

THE DREAM CENTER'S CAROLYN

BARNETT IS GOING TO HELP

SHOW US ALL THE WAY.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A LEGAL FIGHT OVER SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE LICENSES IN

PENNSYLVANIA IS NOW IN A

STATE COURT.

THE COUNTY CLERK HAS ISSUED

MORE THAN 160 MARRIAGE

LICENSES TO SAME-SEX COUPLES

AFTER THE SUPREME COURT

RULING ON GAY MARRIAGE BACK

IN JULY.

NOW THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT,

LED BY REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR

TOM CORBETT, IS SUING.

THEY ARGUE THE CLERK CAN

ONLY GIVE LICENSES THAT MEET

THE STATE'S DEFINITION OF

MARRIAGE AS BETWEEN A MAN

AND A WOMAN.

WELL, THE RHODE ISLAND MAN

IS SUING TO SILENCE THE

CHURCH BELLS IN HIS

NEIGHBORHOOD.

JOHN SAYS THE BELLS FROM A

NEARBY CATHOLIC CHURCH

DISTURB HIS PEACE AND WERE A

REASON HIS MARRIAGE ENDED IN

DIVORCE.

HE WANTS THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT TO CUT THE NUMBER

OF TIMES THE BELLS RING.

THE BELLS WERE INSTALLED SIX

YEARS AFTER HE BOUGHT HIS

HOME.

THE CHURCH SAYS IT HAS THE

RIGHT TO RING THE BELLS.

RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS ARE

EXEMPT FROM CITY NOISE

ORDINANCES.

WELL, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: OVER THE PAST

FEW YEARS, A NEW WORD HAS

ENTERED OUR LOXACON, YOLO,

WHICH MEANS LIVE LIFE TO THE

FULLEST.

WHAT IS THE REAL PURPOSE TO

LIFE?

WE ASKED SCOTT ROSS TO FIND

OUT.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE IN

LIFE?

THAT'S A BIG QUESTION FOR

YOU THAT THINK ABOUT.

I DON'T KNOW, LIVE LIFE

TO THE FULLEST AND BE

HAPPY.

DO YOU THINK PEOPLE HAVE

A PROBLEM COMING TO AN

UNDERSTANDING OF WHY THEY'RE

HERE ON THE PLANET, FINDING

THEIR MOTIVE IN LIFE?

I THINK IT IS DEFINITELY

HARD TO FIND, LIKE, WHAT YOU

WAN TO DO.

WANT TO DO.

IT IS DEFINITELY A HARD

DECISION THAT YOU'RE GOING

TO PLAC FOR TH MAKE FOR THE

REST OF YOUR LIFE.

I FEEL THE PURPOSE IN

LIFE IS TO FIND ONE.

Reporter: THE PURPOSE

IN LIFE IS TO FIND ONE.

YEAH.

LIKE YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE IS

GOING TO BE DIFFERENT FROM

MINE.

Reporter: DO YOU THINK

ABOUT YOUR PURPOSE AND WHY

YOUR ON THE PLANET?

JUST TO HAVE FUN AND HAVE

A GOOD CAREER AND DO

SOMETHING THAT YOU LIKE TO

DO.

Reporter: DO YOU

EVER -- IS GOD PART OF THE

EQUATION IN YOUR LIFE AT

ALL?

YES, I'M A CHRISTIAN.

Reporter: OH, YOU ARE.

YES.

Reporter: SO IN TERMS

OF YOUR CAREER, DO YOU PRAY

TO THE LORD ABOUT THAT?

RIGHT.

Reporter: REALLY?

YES.

Reporter: WOW, THAT'S A

BIG DEAL.

YES.

THE PURPOSE OF MY LIFE?

Reporter: YEAH, WHY

YOU'RE LIVING.

YOU'RE HERE FOR A REASON,

RIGHT?

YEAH, EVERYBODY HAS A

REASON.

Reporter: WHAT IS

YOURS?

I DON'T KNOW YET.

Reporter: OUR CULTURE

TENDS TO STEER US INTO

THINGS THEY TELL US WE

SHOULD DO, THINGS LIKE FOR

MONEY, RATHER THAN FOR

PASSION OR FOR FINDING WHAT

IS YOUR MISSION AND WHAT IS

GOOD FOR YOU AND WHAT YOU'RE

YOUR GIFTS ARE.

Reporter: SO YOU ARE

MOTIVATED BY THE THAT

PASSION?

SUCCESS IS FINDING GOD'S

WILL FOR YOUR LIFE, YOUR

HIGHER POWER, AND SUCCESS IS

GIVING THAT BACK TO

SOCIETY.

Reporter: SO IT IS

SERVING OTHERS?

SERVING OTHERS THROUGH

YOUR GIFTS.

Terry: JOINING US FOR

MORE IS CAROLYN BARNETT.

SHE IS THE CO-FOUNDER OF THE

L.A. DREAM CENTER, AND THE

AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK

"WILLING TO WALK ON WATER."

CAROLYN, WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME.

Terry: HOW WOULD YOU

ANSWER THAT QUESTION: WHAT

IS THE PURPOSE TO LIFE?

OUR PURPOSE IS TO KNOW

GOD, TO UNDERSTAND HIS LOVE

FOR US, AND START ACTING

LIKE HIM.

SO I BELIEVE EVERY

CHRISTIAN, IN SOME CAPACITY,

HAS BEEN CALLED BY GOD TO

ACT AS HIS HANDS AND FEET IN

SOME WAY.

WE FIND OUR GREATEST JOY

WHEN WE FIND WHAT THAT

PURPOSE IS.

Terry: WE TALK IN THE

BOOK ABOUT THE

CONCEPT OF

TRIGGERS, AND WHAT IS A

TRIGGER AND HOW DOES THAT

WORK?

AS WE ACT AS GOD'S

AMBASSADOR AND WE FIND OUT

HOW MUCH WE CAN SERVE, I

BELIEVE GOD HAS GIVEN US A

TRIGGER.

WHAT THE TRIGGER IS IS WHEN

YOU HEAR ABOUT AN INJUSTICE,

OR YOU SEE IT, AND YOU CAN'T

NOT DO SIT AND DO SOMETHING

ABOUT IT.

I WAS CALLED BY A SOCIAL

WORKER WHO TELLING ME THERE

WAS A FAMILY IN NEED OF

FOOD.

AT THE TIME THEY HAD TO COME

TO US TO RECEIVE.

SO I DROVE OVER AND I

BROUGHT SOME FOOD.

AS SOON AS I WALKED IN, WHAT

I SAW CHANGED MY LIFE.

IT WAS A MOM 25 WITH EIGHT

KIDS.

Terry: EIGHT?

EIGHT KIDS.

AND MOST WERE JUST IN THEIR

DIAPERS OR UNDERWEAR.

THERE WAS NO FURNITURE.

AS SOON AS WE WALKED IN, THE

KIDS JUMPED IN OUR ARMS AND

STARTED EATING RAW

ZUCCHINI.

AND I THOUGHT, HOW HUNGRY

ARE THESE KIDS.

Terry: AND SHE HAD NO

MEANS OF GETTING TO THE

DREAM CENTER.

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

WHEN I WAS FACE TO FACE WITH

A HUNGRY CHILD, I HEARD THE

CRIES AND FELT THE FEAR, I

UNDERSTAND THAT MY TRIGGER

WAS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN

THIS AREA.

I CAME BACK TO THE DREAM

CENTER AND I SAID, HEY, YOU

KNOW WHAT?

PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY IN

NEED OF FOOD, THEY NEED US

TO BRING IT TO THEM.

WE STARTED MOBILE FOOD BANKS

17 YEARS AGO, AND WE REACH

OUT TO 50,000 PEOPLE EVERY

MONTH.

Terry: TALK A LITTLE

BIT THOUGH ABOUT THOSE WHO

DON'T LIVE IN L.A. AND CAN'T

GET TO THE DREAM CENTER.

HOW DO WE GET THERE?

YOU WERE OUT THERE LISTENING

AND LOOKING.

HOW DO WE FIND THE TRIGGER

FOR OUR LIFE.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND HOW

PASSIONATE I WAS.

IT IS OUR PASSION.

WHEN IT IS A PASSION, IT IS

WORK THAT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE

WORK.

TRY DIFFERENT THINGS.

BASED ON YOUR LEVEL OF

WILLINGNESS AND HOW MUCH

TIME YOU HAVE, TRY

ORGANIZATIONS THAT ALREADY

EXIST WITH THE TIME THAT YOU

HAVE, AND WAIT FOR THAT

PASSION TO

IGNITE

IN YOUR

LIFE.

Terry: I THINK

SOMETIMES PEOPLE LOOK AT

SOMEONE ELSE'S PASSION AND

THEY SAY, I CAN'T DO THAT

BECAUSE, AND THEY HAVE A

LEGITIMATE REASON WHY THEY

CAN'T.

BUT THERE IS A WAY TO FIND

THAT PASSION FOR EVERY

INDIVIDUAL, RIGHT?

RIGHT.

AND, AGAIN, WHEN IT IS A

PASSION, YOU FIND TIME FOR

IT.

IT GIVES YOU A REASON TO BE

EXCITED ABOUT LIFE, TO GET

UP A LITTLE EARLIER.

IT MAKES YOUR ENTIRE LIFE

BETTER WHEN YOU'RE SERVING

IN THIS CAUSE.

Terry: SCOTT WAS ASKING

PEOPLE WHAT THEIR PURPOSE IN

LIFE WAS, AND VERY OFTEN

WHEN WE TURN THE TABLE AND

ASK GOD THINGS, THE QUESTION

THAT COMES UP IS, WHY DO BAD

THINGS HAPPEN IN THE LIVES

OF GOOD PEOPLE, OR ANYBODY,

WHEN GOD IS GOOD.

YOU ASKED GOD THAT AND IT

TOUCHED YOUR LIFE.

I WAS ASKING THE SAME

QUESTIONS A LOT OF

CHRISTIANS WORK.

I WAS AT A BREAKING POINT.

I WAS WORKING AT THE DREAM

CENTER FOR NINE YEARS, SO I

UNDERSTOOD HOW BROKEN OUR

WORLD WAS.

I WATCHED A DOCUMENTARY

ABOUT KIDS WORKING AS

SOLDIERS IN AFRICA, BEING

FORCED TO KILL OTHER KIDS.

I WAS BROKEN AND DEVASTATED,

CRYING MY EYES OUT.

I FELT THE WORLD WAS WICKED,

THERE WAS NO HOPE FOR IT,

THE DEVIL WAS WINNING AND

GOD DIDN'T CARE.

I WAS PRAYING OUT TO GOD,

WHY?

WHY ARE YOU LETTING THIS

HAPPEN?

HE SO SWEETLY REMINDED ME,

AND HE SAID, CAROLYN, I SENT

MY SON JESUS TO PAY FOR THE

SIN YOU JUST SAW, SO THERE

WOULD BE REDEMPTION.

IN MY WORD I HAVE GUARANTEED

YOU SUCCESS, AND IN MY WORD

I PROMISED TO PROTECT AND

PROVIDE.

SO WHY ARE YOU LETTING IT

HAPPEN.

IT DAWNED ON ME.

GOD HAS GIVEN US EVERYTHING

WE NEED IN THIS WORLD,

INCLUDING GIVING US OUR

GIFTS AND TALENTS.

Terry: TO BE THE

ANSWER.

WE SAW SOME OF THAT

HAPPENING IN WHAT WE SAW

GOING SON IN ISRAE ON IN

ISRAEL EARLIER.

THEY ARE GIVING ANSWERS TO

PEOPLE'S GREAT NEED.

HOW IMPORTANT IS THE

WILLINGNESS ASPECT FOR

THIS?

THAT WAS A JOY TO ME.

WHEN GOD REVEALED TO ME IT

WAS OUR FAULT, AND HE HAS

ALREADY GIVEN US EVERYTHING

WE NEED.

I THOUGHT, WHAT DOES THAT

MEAN FOR US?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR OUR

EVERYDAY LIFE?

IT IS A VERY OVERWHELMING

REVELATION.

YOU START LOOKING UP ALL OF

THE STATISTICS OF WHO IS

SUFFERING AROUND THE WORLD

AND THE NUMBERS SEEM

OVERWHELMING.

GOD SHOWED ME ALL HE NEEDS

IS OUR WILLINGNESS.

IF WE GIVE HIM OUR

WILLINGNESS, HE WILL DO THE

MIRACULOUS AND WE CAN CHANGE

THIS WORLD.

Terry: THERE IS ANOTHER

CONCEPT YOU TALK ABOUT IN

THE BOOK I THINK IS SO

SIGNIFICANT AND ALSO HELPS

US FIND OUR PASSION AND KIND

OF MOTIVATES US, AND THAT IS

BROKENNESS.

HOW DID GOD USE THAT IN YOUR

LIFE?

EVERY TIME I'M ON THE

STREETS AND I SEE THE

HURTING, THERE HASN'T BEEN

ONE TIME I DIDN'T THINK, NO

WONDER.

NO WONDER YOU ENDED UP IN

YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.

NO WONDER YOU MADE THE

CHOICES YOU MADE.

I'VE BEEN HEARING

TESTIMONIES FOR 17 YEARS AT

THE DREAM CENTER, AND I

STILL CRY EVERY SINGLE

TIME.

YOU'LL HEAR THE MOST

DEVASTATING PAST, THE MOST

GUT-WRENCHING STORY, AND YET

THEY'RE ON STAGE SMILING,

AND THANKING GOD FOR HIS

GOODNESS AND WHAT HE HAS

DONE IN THEIR LIFE.

GOD IS DOING MIRACLES TODAY

AND IT IS EXCITING TO BE A

PART OF IT.

Terry: THE DREAM CENTER

REALLY STARTED -- IT ALL

STARTS WITH A VISION FOR

SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T YET

EXIST.

YOU'RE NOW MINISTERING TO

HOW MANY PEOPLE?

THOUSANDS.

Terry: IT IS HARD TO

PUT A NUMBER ON IT?

EXACTLY.

WE HAVE ABOUT 700 RESIDENTS

LIVING ON CAMPUS.

THESE ARE PEOPLE COMING OFF

OF DRUGS, STRAIGHT FROM

PRISON, HOMELESSNESS,

SUICIDAL ATTEMPTS,

DEPRESSION.

WE HAVE A PROGRAM FOR

VICTIMS OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

WE TAKE IN HOMELESS

FAMILIES.

WE TAKE IN TEENS.

SO OUR PHILOSOPHY AT THE

DREAM CENTER IS: WHATEVER

THE NEED IS IN OUR

NEIGHBORHOOD, WE WANT TO

ADDRESS IT.

SO WHATEVER THAT LOOKS LIKE,

WE'VE TRIED TO HELP.

Terry: I LOVE THE WHOLE

CONCEPT, AND YOU WRITE ABOUT

IT SO WELL, IN YOUR BOOK,

ABOUT THE FACT THAT

EVERYBODY -- EVERYBODY HAS A

PURPOSE, AND GOD WANTS TO

USE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US.

AND MAYBE IT IS NOT A DREAM

CENTER THAT IS IN YOUR

FUTURE, BUT IT MIGHT BE THE

PERSON NEXT DOOR WITH NEED.

IT IS CALLED "WILLING TO

WALK ON WATER."

THIS IS CAROLYN BARNETT'S

BOOK.

IT IS AVAILABLE IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

IF YOU WANT TO HEAR MORE

FROM CAROLYN BARNETT, WE'VE

GOT GOOD NEWS.

SHE WILL BE OUR GUEST

SPEAKER AT OUR CBN CHAPEL

SERVICE.

AND CHECK OUT HER STAGE

INTERVIEW IN OUR SECTION

CALLED "IN THE

GREEN ROOM."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

HERE.

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU.

Pat: SHE IS A BEAUTIFUL

LADY, BUT THAT SPIRIT

RESONATES.

SHE FEELS THE PAIN OF THOSE

PEOPLE.

GOD BLESS HER.

COMING UP, THE PART OF THE

SHOW WHERE WE TURN IT OVER

TO YOU, OUR VIEWERS.

LENA SAYS, "IS IT A SIN TO

BURN INCENSE?

A FRIEND TOLD ME IT WAS."

COMING UP, WE'RE GOING TO

ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.

Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

A FEW MINUTES TO ANSWER SOME

OF THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS THAT

YOU SUBMITTED.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM LENA.

"A FRIEND OF MINE TOLD ME IT

IS A SIN TO BURN INCENSE.

I'M NOT BURNING IT TO

WORSHIP AN IDOL.

IS IT A SIN?"

Pat: IF IT SMELLS GOOD

TO YOU, GO FOR IT.

MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT

WORSHIPPING AN IDOL BECAUSE

THAT IS SINFUL.

BUT IF YOU JUST THINK IT

SMELLS GOOD, THAT'S OKAY.

Terry: JENNIFER

SAYS, "I JUST STARTED A NEW

JOB AND LOVE IT, HOWEVER,

SOME OF THE EMPLOYEES CUSS.

I KNOW IT IS WRONG AND I

DON'T LIKE BEING AROUND IT.

HOW DO I APPROACH THIS

SITUATION WITH THEM?

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THEM NOT

TO USE PROFANITY AROUND

THEM.

I JUST STARTED THIS JOB, AND

I WANT TO BE A GOOD

WITNESS."

Pat: I ONCE PLAYED GOLF

WITH A WEALTHY MAN AND

ANOTHER WEALTHY MAN.

MY

GOLF WAS TERRIBLE.

BUT ONE OF THESE GUYS, EVERY

TIME HE HIT A BAD SHOT, HE

WOULD ISSUE A PRO

PROFANITY.

FINALLY I SAID TO HIM, YOU

KNOW SOMETHING?

IT ISN'T GOD'S FAULT YOU'RE

PLAYING BAD GOLF.

THAT WAS IT.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: HE LATER TOLD A

FRIEND, THAT PREACHER DID

MORE TO STOP MY CUSSING THAN

ANYBODY ELSE.

THERE ARE A LOT OF WORDS,

FOLKS, THAT COME FROM THE

OLD ENGLISH.

THE AN ANGLO-SAXON USED

THESE WORDS TO DESCRIBE

BODILY FUNCTIONS.

THE NORMANS, THE FRENCH, HAD

MORE REFINED WORDS.

SO THE COARSE WORDS FROM THE

ANGLO-SAXON WE CONSIDER

CUSSING.

THE WORD FOR INTERCOURSE

SEEMS TO HAVE GOTTEN PEOPLE

ON EDGE, BUT IT IS AN

ANGLO-SAXON WORD.

Terry: DON'T USE THEM

YOURSELF.

Pat: THEY JUST KNOW SHE

DOESN'T USE PROFANITY.

Terry: ARTHUR SAYS, "I

HAVE A MULTIPLE HEALTH

PROBLEMS.

MY PRIMARY PHYSICIAN WANTS

ME TO DRINK A GLASS OF WINE

EVERY DAY.

I'M AWARE OF THE BIBLICAL

WARNING TO AVOID,

QUOTE,"STRONG DRINK," IS

THERE ANYTHING SPIRITUALLY

WRONG WITH DRINKING THE ONE

GLASS OF WINE A DAY FOR MY

HEALTH?"

Pat: YOU QUOTED IT FROM

THE BIBLE.

WINE IS MEDICINAL AND IT

HELPS KILL INTESTINAL

PARASITES.

Terry: IT IS KIND OF A

RECENT THING,.

Pat: RESVERATOL IS THE

RECENT THING, BUT IT IS

SUPPOSED TO HELP PROLONG

YOUR LIFE.

A GLASS OF RED WINE IS NOT

GOING TO HURT ANYBODY.

IF YOU'RE AN ALCOHOLIC ON

THE OTHER HAND, ONE GLASS OF

RED WINE MAY SET YOU OFF ON

A BENDER.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT

PROBLEM, I DON'T SEE

ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT.

Terry: CINDY SAYS,

"DOES GOD GIVE EVERYONE AN

APPOINTED TIME TO DIE?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS IT

IS APPOINTED ONCE TO DIE,

AND AFTER THAT THE

JUDGMENT.

BUT DOES THAT MEAN EACH ONE

OF US HAS GOT AN APPOINTED

TIME, IF THAT WAS THE CASE,

THEN THE WAY WE LIVE, THE

WAY WE DRIVE OUR CARS, THE

TYPE OF ABUSE WE GIVE TO OUR

BODIES WOULDN'T HAVE ANY

EFFECT AS ALL.

IT WOULD BE BOUND THAT WE'RE

GOING TO DIE AT 58 1/2 YEARS

OLD ON AUGUST 15th OR

SOMETHING -- I JUST DON'T

SEE THAT.

Terry: IT IS MORE

ADDRESSING REINCARNATION,

THAT THERE IS ONE DEATH AND

THAT'S IT --

Pat: THAT'S IT, AND

AFTER THAT, THE JUDGMENT.

IN ANY EVENT, GOD KNOWS WHEN

IT IS GOING TO BE, BUT I

DON'T THINK HE SET IT SO

YOU'RE GOING TO DIE -- SOME

OF US WHO BELIEVE IN FREE

WILL DON'T BUY IT.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, A NEW MOM GETS

HEART SURGERY WITHOUT THE

AID OF A DOCTOR.

AND TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM JESUS: "IF

YOU HAVE FAITH AS A MUSTARD

SEED, NOTHING WILL BE

IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU."

FOR TERRY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.

BYE-BYE.
