Author Kevin Leman shares how to guide your strong willed child into becoming a well rounded adult. Plus, San Diego Chargers veteran quarterback Philip Rivers speaks with CBN Sports about his uncompromising faith. Read Transcript


ON SUNDAYS, ALL EYES ARE

ON HIM.

IT'S A BATTLE.

THROUGHOUT THE WEEK, HIS

EYES ARE LOOKING UP.

HE DIDN'T LEAVE US HERE

EMPTY-HANDED.

INSIDE THE HUDDLE WITH

SAN DIEGO'S QUARTERBACK

PHILIP RIVERS.

PLUS, IF YOU'VE SUFFERED

FROM TEMPER TANTRUMS, AND

EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN, WE

HAVE HELP FOR YOU.

KEVIN LEMAN IS HERE.

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

WITH ME IS THE WONDERFUL

WENDY.

Wendy: GOOD TO SEE

YOU.

Pat: THERE ARE A GROUP

OF BAD GUYS WHO ARE TRYING

TO ENFORCE SHARI'A LAW ON

THE CHRISTIANS, AND FORCE

THEM TO PAY A PUNITIVE TAX.

WHILE THE WORLD IS FOCUSING

ON CHEMICAL WEAPONS, THE

CHRISTIANS ARE FACING

INTENSE PERSECUTION.

GUESS WHAT?

FROM MUSLIMS.

Wendy: IT'S THE LATEST

EXAMPLE OF MUSLIM ATTACKS

AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN

COUNTRIES THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: SYRIAN

CHRISTIANS HAVE SUPPORTED

THE ASSAD REGIME BECAUSE IT

HAS PROTECTED RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES OVER THE YEARS.

THOSE DAYS MAY BE COMING TO

AN END.

MANY ANALYSTS TEND TO

BELIEVE AS YOU WEAKEN THE

REGIME, YOU ALSO STRENGTHEN

RARADICAL ISLAMISTS WHO ARE

FIGHTING THE REGIME, WHO ARE

HAVING THEIR SAY IN THE

SO-CALLED LIBERATED AREAS OF

SYRIA.

IN THE NORTH AND ELSEWHERE,

WHERE THEY'RE IMPOSING

ISLAMIC RULE.

Reporter: THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENED IN EGYPT, WHEN THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TOOK

OVERMENT EVEN THOUGH THE

BROTHERHOOD HAS BEEN

WEAKENED BY MILITARY

INTERVENTION, SUPPORTERS OF

OUSTED PRESIDENT MOHAMMED

MORSI STILL WREAK HAVOC ON

CHRISTIANS IN THE SOUTH.

THE CHURCH WAS SURROUNDED

ON ALL SIDES.

AND THE PEOPLE SURROUNDING

THE CHURCH WERE ARMED.

THERE COULDN'T BE LESS THAN

A THOUSAND TOTALLY

SURROUNDING THE CHURCH,

CARRYING WEAPONS.

Reporter: IN THE

CHRISTIAN TOWN OF DELGA, A

MONASTERY WAS DESTROYED.

THE ANCIENT DOOR WAS

VANDALIZED, AND OTHER NEARBY

CHURCHES WERE BURNED.

WE STILL DON'T HAVE A

CHURCH TO PRAY AT.

WE ARE STILL TRYING TO CLEAN

THEM UP.

WE HAVE FOUR CHURCHES IN THE

AREA, AND WE CANNOT PRAY IN

ANY OF THEM.

Reporter: THE YOU

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN DELGA

IS ALSO IMPOSING ATTACKS ON

CHRISTIANS.

IT IS CALLED AJIJI ATTACKS.

ACCORDING TO THE AUTHOR

RAYMOND, AJIJI IS WHAT THE

NON-MUSLIMS HISTORICALLY HAD

TO PAY TO THEIR ISLAMIC

OVERLORDS.

IT IS ALREADY STARTING TO

HAPPEN IN SYRIA, WHEN REBELS

TOOK OVER THE ANCIENT TOWN

OF MAALOULA, THEY GAVE A

CHRISTIAN SHOP OWNER THREE

OPERATIONS.

PAY A $70,000 TAX, CONVERT,

OR DIE.

MANY FEAR WHAT HAPPENED

IN SYRIA WILL BE A REPLAY OF

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE

CHRISTIAN OF IRAQ, WHICH

LIKE THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY

IN SYRIA, HAS PLAYED SUCH AN

IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE

HERITAGE AND CULTURE AND THE

PERCEPTION OF TOLERANCE IN

THOSE COUNTRIES HAD TO FLEE

BECAUSE THEY WERE TARGETED

BY RADICAL ISLAMISTS AS

WELL.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THAT IS SOMETHING

WE NEED TO LOOK AT.

AND REGRETTABLY, I DON'T

THINK ANYTHING GOOD TO COME

OUT OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IN RELATION

TO DEFENDING THE RIGHTS OF

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

IT JUST WON'T HAPPEN.

THEY'LL COME DOWN ON THE

SIDE OF THE BROTHERHOOD AND

THEY'LL COME DOWN ON THE

SIDE OF THE RADICALS.

AND THEY'LL SAY

WE'RE, QUOTE,"HELPING THE

MODERATE ISLAMISTS," BUT

THERE ARE NONE IN THAT

PARTICULAR STRUGGLE.

THE UNITED STATES IS STILL

LOOKING FOR A DIPLOMATIC WAY

OUT OF THE STANDOFF OF

SYRIA'S CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: SECRETARY OF

STATE JOHN KERRY IS IN

GENEVA FOR THE TWO-DAY

SUMMIT.

IT CENTERS AROUND THE PLAN

FOR SYRIA TO HAND OVER THEIR

CHEMICAL WEAPONS STOCKPILE

TO THE NATIONAL COMMUNITY.

BUT VLADIMIR PUTIN SAYS HE

WON'T SUPPORT A MILITARY

STRIKE AGAINST SYRIA IF

DAMASCUS DOESN'T COMPLY.

PUTIN CRITICIZED THE

AMERICANS U.S. FORCE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

AND SAYS THEY ARE RELYING

SOLELY ON BRUTE FORCE.

THE REPORTS SURFACE THAT THE

U.S. HAS BEEN SENDING SMALL

ARMS, LIKE MACHINE GUNS, TO

THE REBELS IN SYRIA.

OBAMACARE IS PROVING

UNPOPULAR EVEN WITH SOME OF

THE PRESIDENT'S POLITICAL

ALLIES IN THE LABOR

MOVEMENT.

THE AFL/CIO HAS CRITICIZED

PART OF THE NEW LAW.

AND WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS

ARE DISCOURAGING THE GROUP

FROM MAKING ITS CONCERNS SO

PROMINENT.

THE OPPOSITION SAYS IT WILL

DRIVE UP THE HEALTH CARE TO

THE POINT WHERE WORKERS AND

EMPLOYERS ARE FORCED TO

ABANDON THEM.

LABOR UNIONS STILL SUPPORT

THEOBAMACARE TO

CUT HEALTH CARE CUTS AND

PROVIDE COVER CAGE TO ALL

AMERICANS, BUT SAYS THE LAW

AS IT STANDS NOW WILL HURT

THE UNION PLANS.

DETROIT BECAME THE LARGEST

CITY IN AMERICA TO GO

BANKRUPT, BUT OTHER CITIES

ARE ALSO HURTING

FINANCIALLY.

THAT MEANS IMPORTANT

UPGRADES TO ROADS, BRIDGES,

AND ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS ARE

BEING PUSHED TO THE SIDE.

BUT THERE MAY BE A SOLUTION

WHERE BUSINESSES CAN WORK

WITH THE CITY TO GET THE

UPGRADES THEY SO DESPERATELY

NEED.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, MORE AND MORE

CITIES STRUGGLE TO PAY THEIR

BILLS.

OBLIGATIONS FROM PAYROLL TO

HEALTH CARE TO PENSION FUNDS

SQUEEZE ALREADY SHRINKING

BUDGETS.

BUT THERE IS A SOLUTION, A

WAY TO MAKE THOSE

DESPERATELY-NEEDED

INFRASTRUCTURE UPDATES

WITHOUT USING GOVERNMENT

MONEY.

IT'S CALLED PUBLIC-PRIVATE

PARTNERS.

CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

PROJECTS OFTEN GET

SIDELINED.

THE RESULT, CRUMBLING

HIGHWAYS, AND ELECTRIC GRIDS

THAT CAN'T KEEP UP THE.

UNDER A PARTNERSHIP,

PRIVATE SECTOR WILL COME AND

DO THE INVESTMENT, AND SO IT

IS NOT ON THE BOOKS OF THE

PUBLIC SECTOR.

Reporter: RICHARD

NORMAN SAYS THESE

PARTNERSHIPS CAN INCLUDE THE

QUALITY OF A WIDE RANGE OF

SERVICES.

WE USE PARTNERSHIPS FOR

TRANSPORTATION, AN OBVIOUS

ONE, BUT FOR ENERGY SYSTEMS,

ECONOMIC HOUSING, HOSPITALS,

SCHOOLS.

Reporter: POOR

MAINTENANCE CONTRIBUTES TO

THAT GROWING NEED, AND NEW

BUILDING PROVINCE PROJECTS

RARELY MAKE IT TO A CITY'S

DRAWING BOARD.

PRIVATE BUSINESSES CAN

PROVIDE STATE-OF-THE-ART

SERVICES.

THERE IS A BIG NEED IN NEW

YORK CITY.

ENGINEER MITCH CALLS THE BIG

APPLE'S ELECTRICAL

INFRASTRUCTURE

INSUFFICIENT.

CON ED HAS THE SAME ISSUE

THE REST OF THE UTILITIES

HAVE.

THEY HAVE NEVER ENVISIONED

THE KIND OF KIND OF

ELECTRICAL GROWTH THAT THE

CITY HAS.

CON ED IS DOING THE VERY

BEST TO DELIVER THE POWER,

BUT IT IS A FINITE RESOURCE,

AND THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE HAS

FINITE CAPABILITIES.

BECAUSE OF ALL OF THAT,

THEIR UTILITY RATES ARE

EXTRAORDINARY.

AND IT'S, AGAIN, BECAUSE OF

THE RATES THAT THEY ARE TO

CHARGE TO COVER THIS

INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADE, NOT

MAKING IT MORE RELIABLE OR

MORE ROBUST, BUT SIMPLY TO

KEEP PACE WITH THE

INCREASING DEMAND.

Reporter: FORMER

GOVERNOR GEORGE PATAKI SAYS

THE STAGE IS SET FOR PRIVATE

INVESTORS TO STEP IN WITH

FINANCIALLY EFFECTIVE

SOLUTIONS.

WHAT I HOPE WE DO FAR

MORE OF IN NEW YORK AND THE

COUNTRY GOING FORWARD IS TO

EMPOWER PRIVATE COMPANIES

WITH TREMENDOUS EXPERTISE,

AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THEY

WANTINVEST IN

INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS TO

WORK WITH THE PUBLIC SECTOR,

TO COME UP WITH BOTH

FINANCIALLY BETTER, MORE

EFFECTIVE, AND QUICKER

SOLUTIONS TO THE

INFRASTRUCTURE PROBLEM.

Reporter: THE NEED

EXISTS, AND THE PRIVATE

FUNDING IS THERE.

NOW IT IS UP TO STATE AND

LOCAL LEADERS TO GET ON

BOARD AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF

THE OPPORTUNITY.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS

DISMISSED THE LAWSUIT TO

REMOVE THE NATIONALE MOTTO

"IN GOD WE TRUST" FROM U.S.

COINS AND CURRENCY.

I THINK THEIST GROUPS AND

INDIVIDUALS SAYS IT VIOLATES

THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND

STATE.

THE JUDGE WROTE THAT THE

SUPREME COURT HAS REPEATEDLY

ASSUMED THE MOTTO IN EFFECT,

AND FEDERAL APPEALS COURTS

HAVE FOUND NO CONSTITUTIONAL

VIOLATION IN THE MOTTO.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE REPRESENT 41

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

JAY SECULO SAYS COURTS HAVE

REJECTED SIMILAR CHALLENGES

BROUGHT BY ATHEISTS.

PAT, WE NOW THAT THE ACLJ

MAIN ARGUMENT IS IT IS A

HISTORICAL FACT THAT THE

NATION WAS FOUNDED ON ITS

BELIEF IN GOD.

Pat: THERE IS NO

QUESTION ABOUT IT.

WE ALL NEED FREEDOM, FREEDOM

OF SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF

WRITING.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE TO STRIP

OUT THE RIGHTS OF ALL

BELIEVERS IN ORDER TO

SATISFY A TINY MINORITY THAT

DOESN'T BELIEVE IN

ANYTHING.

THE NUMBER OF ATHEISTS IS

JUST TINY IN RELATION TO THE

REST OF THE POPULATION.

WE ARE A RELIGIOUS PEOPLE.

WE BELIEVE IN GOD.

THERE IS NO REASON WHY WE

SHOULDN'T MAKE THAT NONE

KNOWN IN OUR PUBLIC

PRONOUNCEMENTS.

THE SUPREME COURT, THANK

GOODNESS, HAS SAID THAT'S

TRUE.

WELL, PRAISE THE LORD.

Wendy: THE ATHEISTS ARE

SO LOUD, THOUGH.

THEY MIGHT BE 1%.

Pat: BUT IT IS SO TINY,

THE PEOPLE WHO DON'T BELIEVE

IN ANYTHING.

WHY SHOULD WE GIVE UP OUR

RIGHTS JUST BECAUSE THEY

DON'T BELIEVE IN ANYTHING.

WELL, WE'LL BE OFFENDED.

WELL, TOUGH LUCK.

GO AHEAD.

Wendy: COMING UP, SCOTT

ROSS TAKES US TO ISRAEL

ALONG THE SAME ROUTE THAT

ABRAHAM, I' ISAAC AND JACOB

TRAVELLED.

MODERN DAY ISRAELIS TALK

ABOUT LIFE AND WHAT IS KNOWN

AS THE WEST BANK, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: I JUST HAPPENED TO

BE IN NORWAY WHEN THESE GUYS

WERE MEETING 20 YEARS AGO.

ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS

SIGNED THE OSLO ACCORDS, AND

SINCE THEN, ENDLESS

NEGOTIATIONS HAVE FOLLOWED,

BUT THEY STILL HAVE NO

PEACE.

NOW, ONCE AGAIN WE HAVE

PEACE TALKS.

THE STAKES ARE HIGHER FOR

ISRAELIS SINCE THE

PALESTINIANS WANT TO TAKE

PART OF THE PROMISED LAND TO

ESTABLISH THEIR OWN STATE,

AND THEY ALSO WANT HALF OF

JERUSALEM, WHICH IS, I

THINK, NON-NEGOTIABLE.

RECENTLY SCOTT ROSS TALKED

WITH SOME ISRAELIS ABOUT

THEIR ONGOING STRUGGLE IN

THE LAND.

Reporter: KNOWN TO MUCH

OF THE WORLD AS THE WEST

BANK, JUDEA AND SOMARIA OF

THE BIBLE IS TODAY HOME TO

SOME 360,000 JEWISH ISRAELIS

AND AT LEAST 1.4 MILLION

PALESTINIAN ARABS.

SHILO, THE FIRST CAPITAL

OF ANCIENT ISRAEL.

THE PLACE WHERE THE

TABERNACLE STOOD FOR 369

YEARS.

Reporter: DAVID RUBIN

IS THE FORMER MAYOR OF

SHILOH.

WE TALKED TOGETHER

OVERLOOKING THE ROUTE IN

WHICH THE BIBLICAL

PATRIARCHS, ABRAHAM, ISAAC,

AND JACOB WOULD HAVE

TRAVELLED.

THIS IS WHERE JOSHUA

STOOD FROM THE ISRAELITES,

AND HE SAID, HOW LONG WILL

YOU WAIT BEFORE COMING TO

TAKE POSSESSION OF THE LAND

THAT THE LORD GOD OF YOUR

FATHER HAS GIVEN YOU.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE THE

WOMAN HANNAH CAME TO PRAY

FOR HER SON.

THE SON THAT WAS BORN FROM

HER PRAYERS WAS SAMUEL THE

PROPHET.

WHO GREW UP IN PROPHECY,

ALONG WITH THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL.

Reporter: THAT IS THE

ISSUE THAT REMAINS TODAY:

THIS IS THE LAND THAT GOD

GAVE YOU?

WE HAVE A SPECIAL

RESPONSIBILITY TO CHERISH IT

AND TAKE CARE OF IT.

Reporter: RUBIN'S

COMMITMENT TO THE LAND CAME

AT A PERSONAL PRICE WHILE HE

AND HIS SON WERE AMBUSHED BY

TERRORISTS WHILE TRAVELLING

ON THE WAY HOME.

THE CAR WAS HIT BY A

MASSIVE AMOUNT OF BULLETS.

I WAS SHOT IN THE LEG, AND

MY SON WAS SHOT IN THE

HEAD.

Reporter: IS YOUR SON

ALIVE TODAY?

THANK GOD HE HAD A

MIRACULOUS RECOVERY.

Reporter: WHY DO PEOPLE

CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THE THREAT

OF VIOLENCE, YOUR CHILDREN

BEING EXPOSED TO THIS.

WHY DO PEOPLE WANT TO BE

HERE?

WE HAVE COME HOME.

WE'RE FULFILLING PROPHECY.

Reporter: SOME 300

FAMILIES LIVE IN SHILOH

TODAY, 35 YEARS AFTER IT WAS

REESTABLISHED IN 1978.

YET MAHMOUD ABBAS SAID

RECENTLY THAT A FUTURE

PALESTINIAN STATE IN THIS

AREA MUST BE COMPLETELY FREE

OF JEWS.

THERE NEVER WAS A

PALESTINIAN STATE.

IT IS ALL AN ILLUSION.

ALL A POLITICAL GAIN BY THE

ISLAMIC WORLD TO TRY TO MAKE

SURE THAT ISRAEL DOESN'T

HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXIST

ANYMORE.

Reporter: HOW DO YOU

FEEL ABOUT THE

LAND-FOR-PEACE

NEGOTIATIONS.

YOU GIVE UP THE LAND, THERE

IS GOING TO BE PEACE.

IT IS TIME FOR A NEW

LAND, CALLED PEACE FOR

PEACE.

WE EXTEND OUR HAND IN PEACE,

THEY EXTEND THEIR HAND IN

PEACE, AND WE SHAKE AND ALL

IS WELL.

Reporter: JUDEA AND

SOMARIA, INCLUDING THE

JORDAN VALLEY IS 79 MILES

LONG, AND BETWEEN 19 AND

34 MILES WIDE.

TO THE SOUTH OF JERUSALEM

AND BETHLEHEM IS A LARGE

BLOCK OF JEWISH COMMUNITIES

IN JUDEA CALLED THE GOSH

ETZION.

IN ANOTHER PART OF WHAT THE

WORLD CALLS THE WEST BANK.

WE'RE AT THE HIGHEST

POINT IN GOSH ET ZION.

WE'RE ON THE BACK HILLS.

AND THAT IS THE

MEDITERRANEAN SEA AND THE

COASTAL PLAIN.

TEL AVIV, ASHKALON, AND DONE

TO GAZA.

AND YOU CAN SEE THE ROCKETS

COME OUT OF IT.

WHEN YOU LOOK EAST, WE'RE

LOOKING TOWARDS JORDAN.

FIRST WE HAVE THE HILLS

HERE, AND THEY GO FROM

HEBRON ALL THE WAY UP TO

JERUSALEM, AND THERE IS

JORDAN ON THE OTHER SIDE.

THAT'S IT.

THAT'S ALL WE'VE GOT.

THIS IS THE WIDTH, AND WE'RE

ON TOP.

Reporter: LUCY

LIEBERMAN IS A WIFE AND

MOTHER.

ORIGINALLY FROM OHIO, SHE IS

RAISING HER FAMILY IN A

COMMUNITY CALLED ALON

SHABBUT, WHICH MEANS RETURN

TO THE OAK TREE.

THE JURIS HAVE ESTABLISHED

SEVERAL FARMING COMMUNITIES

HERE BEFORE THE STATE OF

ISRAEL IN 1948, BUT DURING

ISRAEL'S WAR OF

INDEPENDENCE, THEY WERE

DESTROYED AND THE RESIDENTS

KILLED OR DRIVEN AWAY.

AFTER THE 1967 SIX-DAY WAR,

THE JEWS RETURNED TO REBUILD

HERE.

WHO ARE YOUR NEIGHBORS?

I THINK HAVING LEBANON IN

THE NORTH, AND SYRIA TO THE

NORTHEAST, AND THEN YOU COME

AROUND AND HAVE EGYPT TO THE

SOUTH, WE'RE NOT IN A GREAT

AREA.

Reporter: THERE ARE 24

MUSLIM STATES SURROUNDING

ISRAEL, FROM MOROCCO TO

IRAN.

MORE THAN EIGHT MILLION

SQUARE MILES OF LAND.

MORE THAN 500 TIMES THE SIZE

OF ISRAEL, WHERE SOME HALF A

BILLION PEOPLE LIVE.

JUDEA AND SOMARIA STAND

BETWEEN ISRAEL'S MAJOR

POPULATION CENTERS AND THE

ARAB WORLD.

WITHOUT IT, IN SOME PLACES

ISRAEL IS JUST NINE MILES

WIDE.

THE ARABS' FACTION HATE THE

JEWS.

DO YOU HATE THE ARABS?

I DON'T THINK THE ARABS

THAT LIVE NEARBY IN THE

VILLAGE OVER THERE -- I

DON'T THINK THEY HATE ME.

I THINK THEY'RE TAUGHT TO

HATE ME.

WE HAVE AN ARAB FRIEND, I

KNOW THE NAMES OF HIS KIDS,

AND HE IS BEHIND THIS CHEESE

COUNTER WITH A HUGE

CLEAVER.

AND HE IS, LIKE, WHAT CAN I

GET YOU?

AND HE IS OUR FRIEND.

I'M NOT AFRAID.

I'M ACTUALLY ENCOURAGED.

Reporter: 20 YEARS AGO,

THEN ISRAEL PRIME MINISTER

YITZHAK RABIN AND YASSER

ARAFAT SIGNED THE OSLO

ACCORDS AND SHOOK HANDS, AND

STILL THERE IS NO PEACE.

DO YOU THINK THIS COULD

POSSIBLY BECOME A FUTURE

PALESTINIAN STATE?

IF IT WERE TO BECOME A

PALESTINIAN STATE, I WOULD

IMAGINE IT WOULD BECAUSE

THERE IS SOME HUGE

BREAKTHROUGH AND THE WHOLE

WORLD BELIEVES WE HAVE PEACE

IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD.

AND IF THAT IS TRUE, I CAN

LIVE HERE.

I'M JEWISH, I BOUGHT THE

LAND, AND I SHOULD BE ABLE

TO KEEP MY HOME.

IN EVERY TALKS THAT WE HEAR,

WE'RE OUT OF THE PICTURE.

WE'LL HAVE TO PACK UP AND

GO.

Reporter: THE

SCRIPTURES TEACH US TO PRAY

FOR JERUSALEM, PRAY FOR

ISRAEL.

DO YOU THINK IT MAKES ANY

DIFFERENCE?

I HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU

CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR

JERUSALEM EVERY DAY.

IT STRENGTHENS US.

IT STRENGTHENS OUR PSYCHE.

IT STREN THEDGE STRENGTHENS

OUR HOPES.

WE KNOW WE'RE NOT ALONE.

Pat: SCOTT ROSS ON THE

WEST BANK.

VERY TELLING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN --

EXCUSE ME -- IF THE ARABS

WANT TO MAKE PEACE, THEY CAN

DO IT ANY DAY THEY WANT TO.

BUT THEY DON'T REALLY WANT

PEACE.

THEY WANT PROVOCATION, AND

THEY WANT TO ELIMINATE THE

JEWS.

BUT IT IS SUCH A TINY, TINY

LITTLE SLIVER OF LAND.

THERE IS PLENTY OF LAND, BUT

THEY WANT MORE.

IT MAKES NO SENSE.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE

PEACE OVER THERE, I HATE TO

SAY IT.

UNTIL THE LORD HIMSELF COMES

BACK, THERE IS NOT GOING TO

BE ANY PEACE.

BUT WHAT SCOTT ROSS SAYS,

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF

ISRAEL.

WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, THE

QUARTERBACK WHO IS KNOWN FOR

HIS TRASH TALKING.

IT IS FUNNY BECAUSE OF

ALL OF THE DIALOGUE I'VE HAD

WITH OTHER TEAMS AND

PLAYERS, I CAN GO HOME AND

TELL MY WIFE AND MY MOTHER.

SO TRASH TALK MIGHT NOT BE

THE RIGHT TERM, BUT THAT'S

HOW IT IS DESCRIBED.

Wendy: SAN DIEGO'S

QUARTERBACK PHILIP RIVERS

TAKES US BEHIND THEIR

OFFENSE.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: AS YOU KNOW, THE

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS ARE A HOT

TEAM, AND SAN DIEGO

QUARTERBACK PHILIP RIVERS

HAS WORN THE NUMBER 17 SINCE

HE WAS IN THE NINTH GRADE.

IN HONOR OF HIS FATHER, WHO

WORE THE SAME NUMBER IN HIGH

SCHOOL.

PHILIP'S STREAK OF 120

CONSECUTIVE STARTS IS

CURRENTLY THE SECOND LONGEST

IN THE LEAGUE.

RECENTLY HE TOLD SPORTS

REPORTER TOM BURING HOW

FAITH AND FAMILY HAVE HELPED

HIM EXCEL IN THE NFL.

Reporter: THE CHARGERS'

PHILIP RIVERS HAS BEEN A

FIXTURE IN SAN DIEGO.

A FOUR-TIME PRO BOWL

PLAYER.

LEADING THE CHARGES TO 16

GAME-WINNING DRIVES DURING

THE COURSE OF HIS CAREER.

IT'S A PLAYOFF CALLED A

MILLION TIMES.

ANTONIO GATES IS GOING TO

RUN ABOUT A 15-YARD.

IT SEEMS TO BE ONE OF THOSE

WE TEND TO GO TO.

Reporter: HIS VALUE AS

A FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK HAS

COME IN THE CLUTCH, WINNING

85% OF THE GAMES HE HAS

PLAYED DURING THE FINAL FIVE

WEEKS BEFORE THE

POST-SEASON.

HE IS ANIMATED AND

COMPETITIVE.

HIS ON-FIELD INTENSITY HAS

CAUSED HIM TO BE LABELLED AS

A TRASH TALKER.

IT SOUNDS BAD, RIGHT?

AND IT'S FUNNY, BECAUSE OF

ALL OF THE DIA DIALOGUE

WITH OTHER PLAYERS AND

TEAMS, I CAN GO HOME AND

TELL MY WIFE AND TELL MY

MOTHER.

TRASH TALKING MAY NOT BE THE

RIGHT TERM FOR IT, BUT

THAT'S HOW IT IS DESCRIBED.

IT IS A PASSION FOR THE

GAME.

Reporter: DESPITE

COMING OFF HIS FIRST LOSING

SEASON IN THE NFL, AND

ADJUSTING TO FREQUENT

TURNOVER OF CHARGER

TEAMMATES, PHILIP HOLDS THE

SIXTH HIGHEST PASSING

EFFICIENCY IN NFL HISTORY.

I TAKE THE ROLE OF

LEADERSHIP AS THE MOST

IMPORTANT JOB I HAVE.

YES, IT IS THE PASSES AND

ALL OF THE DIFFERENT THINGS

YOU HAVE TO DO, BUT IT IS IN

LEADING AND IN THE HUDDLE

AND IN THE WEIGHT ROOMS.

IT IS THAT ROLE THAT COMES

FIRST.

Reporter: IT COMES WITH

THE TERRITORY.

PHILIP READS DEFENCES AND

WATCHES HIS GAME FOOTAGE.

BUT HE IS ALSO A QUARTERBACK

WHO SEES THE BIG PICTURE.

FAITH, FAMILY, AND

FOOTBALL IS HOW I PRIORITIZE

MY LIFE.

THEY ALL GO TOGETHER, BUT

THEY GO IN THAT ORDER.

THE CHARACTERISTICS IN OUR

FAITH AND FAMILY, IN

QUARTERBACKING, IN FOOTBALL,

THEY'RE ALL THE SAME.

THE SACRIFICE, THE

COMMITMENT, THE DEDICATION,

THE TOUGHNESS, THE ABILITY

TO HANDLE ADVERSITY.

Reporter: AND WHEN

ADVERSITY ROLLS IN, PHILIP

FINDS PURPOSE AND

COMPANIONSHIP TO HELP CARRY

HIM THROUGH.

IT IS QUITE AWESOME.

I THINK FOR ME, IT IS

PERSONALIZING THAT JESUS

DIED FOR ME.

SO I THINK WHEN I REALLY

GRASP THAT, YOU'RE ABLE TO

OVERCOME ANYTHING.

BUT WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND

THAT, IT'S ALL THE MORE

PERSONAL.

Reporter: AS A

QUARTERBACK, PHILIP PLAYS

THE HIGHEST PROFILE POSITION

IN ALL OF SPORTS.

WINS AND LOSSES FREQUENTLY

HINGE ON HIS PERFORMANCE.

AND IN THIS OCEANFRONT CITY,

WHO'S TEAM HAS A HISTORY OF

SUCCESS, THERE IS WEEKLY

PRESSURE TO WIN.

WITH YOUR FAITH, IN MY

PROFESSION, IT IS

UNDERSTANDING ALL OF THE

TIME I'M PLAYING FOR AN

AUDIENCE OF ONE, JESUS.

HAVING THAT ABILITY IN YOUR

FAITH AND FAMILY ALLOWS YOU

TO COME HERE AND RELAX, BE

CONFIDENT, AND PLAY.

THERE IS A PHRASE THAT IS

DEAR TO ME.

IT IS A LATIN PHRASE.

NUNCCOPI, AND IT MEANS NOW

WE BEGIN.

AND IT IS NEVER-ENDING.

GOOD OR BAD, YOU HAVE A

GREAT DAY, A GREAT PLAY,

NUNCOPI.

WHEN WE FALL, WE TRY AGAIN.

Reporter: PHILIP

MARRIED HIS HIGH SCHOOL

SWEETHEART, AND THEY'RE

PARENTS TO SIX KIDS, WITH A

SEVENTH ON THE WAY.

PHILIP FREQUENTLY SPEAKS TO

YOUTH ABOUT HIS CONVICTION

ABOUT ABSTINENCE.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND

THAT OUR SEXUALITY IS A

GIFT.

IT IS A GIFT THAT GOD HAS

GIVEN US, AND THEN YOU

UNDERSTAND AND GROW IN THAT

RESPECT AND LOVE WITH YOUR

SPOUSE OR GIRLFRIEND, OR

TO-BE WIFE, AND YOU RESPECT

HER.

YOU REALIZE YOU'RE LOVING

HER HEART AND HER SOUL AND

YOU GO TOGETHER.

I DON'T EVER TRY TO SOUND

LIKE IT IS A PIECE OF CAKE.

NO.

BUT YOU STRIVE AND BATTLE.

IT IS A BATTLE.

Reporter: A BATTLE THAT

REDUCES A 6' 5" QUARTERBACK

TO A GAME RECEIVER.

PHILIP CHARGES AHEAD WITH A

FAITH THAT LEADS HIM AND HIS

FAMILY BY WINNING WELL.

IN FOOTBALL, WE WANT TO

WIN A LOT OF FOOTBALL

GAMES.

WE WANT TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL

FAMILY.

BUT WHAT ARE WE HERE FOR?

MY QUESTION TO JESUS, TO

GOD, IS WHAT DO YOU WANT ME

TO BE?

I BELIEVE TO GET TO HEAVEN

AND TAKE AS MANY PEOPLE WITH

US AS WE CAN.

YOU DO THAT DAILY, IN YOUR

WORDS AND IN YOUR ACTIONS.

IT IS DAILY, THIS PATH AND

THIS JOURNEY OF OUR FAITH.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

TELL THE INDIVIDUAL WHO IS

DESPERATELY SEARCHING FOR A

SENSE OF PURPOSE?

WE HAVE A GAME PLAN.

WE HAVE A GAME PLAN.

HE DIDN'T LEAVE US HERE

EMPTY-HANDED.

WHATEVER STATE YOU'RE IN

YOUR LIFE, WHATEVER IS GOING

ON, IT IS NEVER TOO LATE.

HE IS THERE FOR YOU AND

WAITING ON YOU.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING, DO IT ALL THE

WAY.

LET'S NOT JUST PUT OUR TOE

IN THE WATER, YOU KNOW, AND

KIND OF DABBLE IN IT WHEN IT

IS CONVENIENT.

LET'S GO IN YOUR FAITH AND

IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH

JESUS.

Pat: WHAT A TREMENDOUS

ROLE MODEL, A TREMENDOUS

ATHLETE.

AND INSPIRING WORDS.

BY THE WAY, IF SOME OF YOU

WOULD LIKE TO KNOW JESUS,

YOU'D LIKE TO FIND WHAT

PHILIP RIVERS HAS, GIVE US A

CALL.

THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR

SCREEN.

YOU CAN CALL IN.

1-800-759-0700.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU AND CARES ABOUT YOU.

BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

IS GOD LOVES YOU AND HE

CARES ABOUT YOU.

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO BE IN

FOR SOME LAUGHS.

YOU NEVER HAD ANY LITTLE

CHILDREN, WENDY?

Wendy: NOT YET.

Pat: NOT YET, BUT WE

HOPE FOR THE BEST FOR YOU.

I'VE HAD FOUR AND 10

GRANDCHILDREN AND

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN --

Wendy: IF I GET MARRIED

SOON, WE CAN DO IT.

AND I COULD BE A BIG, FAT

PREGNANT CO-HOST.

IT COULD HAPPEN.

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

STILL AHEAD, EVERY FAMILY

HAS ONE, AND KEVIN LEMAN

SHOULD KNOW BECAUSE HE WAS

THE ONE IN HIS FAMILY.

THE BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

POWERFUL CHILD, COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

NEW SATELLITE IMAGES SUGGEST

NORTH KOREA IS RESTARTING

ITS NUCLEAR ACTIVITY.

A MEMBER OF A U.S. RESEARCH

INSTITUTE SAYS THE COUNTRY

IS BACK AT WORK ON A

PLUTONIUM REACTOR.

BUT IT IS NOT A SURPRISE.

PYEONGCHANG ANNOUNCED ITS

PLAN BACK IN APRIL.

THE REACTOR WAS CLOSED BACK

IN 2007 UNDER THE TERMS OF A

DISARMAMENT AGREEMENT.

THOUSANDS OF BIKERS FROM

AROUND THE COUNTRY FILLED

THE STREETS OF D.C. ON

WEDNESDAY TO HONOR THE

VICTIMS OF THE 9/11

TERRORIST ATTACKS.

THE GROUP CALLED "TWO

MILLION BIKERS TO D.C."

PLANNED TO HAVE A NO-STOP

RIDE THROUGH THE NATION'S

CAPITAL, BUT THEY WERE

DENIED A PERMIT.

THE BIKERS CIRCLED THE

BELTWAY AND WENT INTO THE

STREETS OF D.C. IN SMALLER

GROUPS.

THE RIDE WAS INITIALLY

ORGANIZED TO PROTEST A

MUSLIM MARCH.

A POWER STRUGGLE WITH YOUR

OWN CHILD?

IF SO, YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

"NEW YORK TIMES"

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR,

DR. KEVIN LEMAN, SAYS EVERY

FAMILY HAS WHAT HE CALLS A

POWERFUL CHILD.

HE ALSO SAYS THESE

STRONG-WILLED KIDS DON'T

JUST HAPPEN.

THEY'RE CREATED.

AND THE SECRET TO TURNING

YOUR CHILD'S

ATTENTION-SEEKING BEHAVIOR

IN A POSITIVE DIRECTION IS

TO TAKE CONTROL.

IN HIS LATEST BOOK,

"PARENTING YOUR POWERFUL

CHILD," DR. LEMAN TELLS YOU

HOW TO PREPARE THEM FOR AN

ADULT LIFE.

Wendy: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB," DR. KEVIN LEMAN.

THEY SAY IT TAKES ONE TO

KNOW ONE.

WHAT KIND OF POWERFUL CHILD

WERE YOU?

I CRAWLED OUT OF THE

WORLD HISTORY CLASS ON MY

HANDS AND NEEDS, I GOT

THROWN OUT OF CUB SCOUTS.

I WAS A HANDFUL.

Wendy: YOU GIVE HOPE TO

EVERYONE.

YOU HAVE WRITTEN 40 BOOKS

AND YOU WERE A TERRIBLE

STUDENT.

POWERFUL KIDS, MY

GOODNESS, THEY'RE ALL OVER.

Wendy: WHAT ARE SOME

CHARACTERISTICS, TRADEMARKS

OF POWERFUL KIDS?

THEY'RE EASY TO STOP.

THEY THROW A TEMPER TANTRUM

IN THE MALL, AND YOU STEP

OVER HIM.

AND HE FOLLOWS YOU WHEN YOU

STEP OVER HIM, AND THAT'S

HIS WAY OF SAYING I'M IN

AUTHORITY OVER YOU.

THE TEENAGER WHO SLAMS THE

DOOR.

WHAT DO MOST PARENTS SAY TO

THAT KID, DON'T YOU SLAM THE

DOOR IN THIS HOUSE.

DO YOU THINK IT WOULD WORK

IF YOU SAY, WHAT DOES THAT

SLAMMED DOOR MEAN, HONEY?

YOU'RE TIRED OF LIVING IN

THIS BEAUTIFUL, FOUR BEDROOM

HOME.

AND THERE ARE VERY SENSITIVE

CHILDREN.

BE CAREFUL, BECAUSE THESE

SENSITIVE KIDS COULD BE

POWERFUL BUZZARDS.

Wendy: IS THERE ALWAYS

AT LEAST ONE POWERFUL CHILD

IN THE FAMILY, OR SOMETIMES

MORE THAN ONE?

THERE CAN BE MORE THAN

ONE, BUT THERE IS USUALLY

ONE.

THE INTERESTING THING IS WE

CREATE, IN THE LITTLE TEAS

WE HAVE, LEMAN SAYS WE

CREATE THE POWERFUL CHILD.

PARENTS, YOU'RE THE POWERFUL

SOURCE.

LET'S TAKE LITTLE FLETCHER.

HE IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND HE

COULD WIN OLYMPIC GOLD IN

ARCH ARCHING HIS BACK.

AND ROGER SAYS, JUST GIVE

HIM TO ME, HONEY.

THERE IS FLETCHER BEING

HAND-FED ON MOMMY'S LAP.

YOU BE 18-MONTH-OLD

FLETCHER, AND WOULD YOU

RATHER BE FED IN MOMMY'S LAP

OR THAT PLASTIC HIGH CHAIR.

WE TEACH KIDS.

IF WE TRY TO MAKE THEM

HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY AT EVERY

TURN.

IF YOU'RE A PARENT LAYING

AWAKE AT NIGHT, AND YOU SAY,

IF THE TRUTH BE KNOWN, I

WOULD LIKE TO FEDEX MY CHILD

TO SOME FAR OFF LAND, THIS

IS A BOOK FOR YOU.

Wendy: WHY IS IT

IMPORTANT TO IDENTIFY THE

CHILD EARLY?

BECAUSE THE POWERFUL

CHILD BECOMES THE POWERFUL

ADOLESCENT.

Wendy: AND THEN ADULT?

AND THEN ADULT.

IN ALL OF THE YEARS WORKING

WITH MARRIED PEOPLE, I DON'T

HEAR PEOPLE SAY, OH,

DR. LEMAN, I LOVE THE WAY MY

HUSBAND CONTROLS ME.

THE POWERFUL PEOPLE TEND TO

BE CONTROLLERS.

WE'RE BACK TO WHAT GOOD OLD

ST. PAUL SAYS, EPHESIANS 6,

THE TRAINING OF A CHILD IS A

FUNDAMENTAL THING, BUT IT

SAYS IN THE WAY HE SHOULD

GO.

IN EPHESIANS 6, IT SAYS,

CHILDREN OBEY YOUR PARENTS,

IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO

DO.

SO IT IS THAT BALANCE -- NOT

THE AUTHORITARIAN, HEY,

YOU'RE GOING TO DO WHAT I

TELL YOU TO DO, AND MOST

PEOPLE HAVE BROUGHT THEIR

KIDS UP WITH THOSE KIND OF

ADMONITIONS.

BUT NOW WE HAVE THE PER

PERMISSIVES WHO WANT THEIR

KIDS TO BE HAPPY, AND ENROLL

THEM IN NON-COMPETITIVE

SOCCER, BECAUSE EVERY CHILD,

DR. LEMAN, SHOULD GET A

TROPHY.

BUT THE ONLY WAY, GOD'S WAY,

QUITE FRANKLY, IS TO BRING

UP KIDS IN HEALTHY

AUTHORITY.

Wendy: WERE YOU A FIRST

BORN?

NO.

I WAS A SNOOKIE.

I WAS THE BABY.

I HAVE A SISTER WHO WAS

PERFECT AND STILL IS, AND A

BROTHER WHO WAS A

QUARTERBACK ON THE FOOTBALL

TEAM.

Wendy: I'M A FIRST

BORN, AND YOU'RE THE BABY.

WE'RE VERY OPPOSITE BECAUSE

FIRST BORNS TEND TO BE

TRAILBLAZERS --

AND PERFECTIONISTS.

Wendy: AND

PERFECTIONISTS.

AND THE BABIES ARE THE

ENTERTAINERS.

AND THAT'S VERY TRUE.

MY BABY BROTHER, HE MADE US

LAUGH.

HE IS AN ATTORNEY, BUT HE IS

STILL THE JOKESTER.

BILLY CRYSTAL, CHEVY

CHASE, STEVE COLBERT, JON

STEWART, THEY'RE ALL

BABIES.

Wendy: THAT'S AMAZING.

THERE REALLY IS SOMETHING TO

THAT.

LOOK AT MY SOCKS.

Wendy: LORD HAVE

MERCY.

DO YOU SEE THE PROBLEM?

THAT IS THE BABY OF THE

FAMILY'S SOCKS.

I COMPETED WITH OLDER SISTER

AND BROTHER.

WHAT I LEARNED AS A KID --

I'VE SHRUNK MYSELF.

SO A KID CAN BE POWERFUL IN

ANY POSITION OF THE FAMILY.

THE POINT IS, IF YOU,

PARENT, CAN CHANGE YOUR

CHOOSE TO USE WITH YOUR

KIDS, YOU CAN CHANGE THAT

KID'S LIFE.

THE KID SAYS, I WANT TO GO

TO A CONCERT.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO A

CONCERT.

WE'RE NOT SPENDING ALL OF

THAT MONEY.

YOU'RE THE PARENT.

YOU THINK YOU COULD SAY,

THAT'S INTERESTING.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT IT.

TELL ME WHAT YOU'VE GOT IN

MIND.

IN OTHER WORDS, YOU'RE

EITHER GOING TO TALK TO YOUR

KIDS AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE

OR THEY'RE GOING TO GO AND

SLAM AND CLICK THEIR DOOR

AND TEXT THEIR BUDDIES LIKE

A WOOD PER WOODPECKER AND

SHUT YOU OUT OF THEIR

LIVES.

Wendy: THERE IS AN

EXAMPLE IN THE BOOK, THE

PARENTS WANT THE KID TO GO

TO GRANDMA'S BIRTHDAY PARTY,

BUT HE WANTS TO GO PLAY

BASKETBALL.

INSTEAD OF SAY NO, YOU'RE

GOING -- YOU SAY YOU'RE

ASKING FOR A FIGHT.

YES.

AND THAT'S THE

AUTHORITARIAN.

I KNOW YOU WANT TO GO HANG

OUT WITH YOUR BUDDIES.

THIS IS GRANDMA'S BIG

BIRTHDAY.

YOU KNOW IN LIFE, YOU DON'T

ALWAYS DO THINGS YOU WANT.

YOUR GRANDMA, WHO I KNOW YOU

LOVE, IS NOT GOING TO BE

HERE FOREVER.

IN ALL DUE RESPECT, GET

READY BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO

LEAVE IN ABOUT 45 MINUTES.

Wendy: AND YOU SAY IT

IS A TEACHABLE MOMENT.

KIDS ARE DUMBER THAN

MUD.

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME,

CALL YOUR INSURANCE AGENT.

ASK HIM WHY YOU PAY SO MUCH

FOR YOUR 16-YEAR-OLD TO

DRIVE.

AND THEY'LL TELL YOU BECAUSE

THEY'RE DUMB AS MUD.

WE HAVE TO MAKE THINGS

TEACHABLE.

THE KID IS LOOKING FOR THE

CAR KEYS ON A SATURDAY, HE

WAS SUPPOSED TO CLEAN THE

GARAGE AND HE DIDN'T.

YOU SAY VERY MATTER OF

FACTUALLY, YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO FIND THE CAR KEYS.

THEY'RE HERE IN MY POCKET.

WELL, GIVE THEM TO ME, I'M

GOING TO BE MAD.

WELL, YOU DIDN'T CLEAN THE

GARAGE.

Wendy: YOU SAY, (A) IF

YOU WANT TO HAVE A FIGHT,

AND (B) HERE IS HOW --

I THINK PARENTS WILL

BATHE THEMSELVES IN THIS

BOOK.

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

TAKE-AWAYS IN THIS BOOK,

WHETHER YOU'RE KID IS 14 OR

24.

Wendy: THIS IS YOUR

44th BOOK.

WHY NOW?

WHY THIS BOOK NOW?

I THINK A LOT OF PARENTS

FEEL LIKE GENERAL CUSTER ON

THAT FINAL LAST DAY OF HIS

LIFE.

WE'RE PRODUCING POWERFUL

KIDS IN MASS.

KIDS SHORTER THAN A

YARDSTICK ARE IN FULL

CONTROL OF THEIR PARENTS.

Wendy: BUT POWERFUL CAN

BE GOOD --

AND YOU WANT YOUR KID TO

BE STRONG-WILLED.

YOU WANT YOUR KID TO STAND

UP AND SAY -- YOU WANT TO

HAVE CONVICTIONS.

AND YOU WANT YOUR KID TO BE

DIFFERENT.

BUT THE POWERFUL KID HAS AN

AGENDA THAT SAYS I'M GOING

TO WIN, I'M GOING TO

DOMINATE, AND I'M GOING TO

CONTROL.

AND YOU DON'T WANT THAT

BECAUSE IT IS UNHEALTHY ALL

AROUND.

Wendy: IT IS

FASCINATING BECAUSE IT IS

GOING TO HELP A LOT OF

PARENTS.

DR. LEMAN'S LATEST BOOK IS

CALLED "PARENTING YOUR

POWERFUL CHILD."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THANK YOU FORBEING HERE.

THANK YOU, WENDY.

Pat: TREMENDOUS.

GET THE BOOK AND LEARN.

UP NEXT, YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

NORMA SAYS, QUOTE,"BOTH MY

HUSBAND AND I WORK.

I'M A CHRISTIAN, BUT HE IS

NOT.

DO I TITHE ON MY INCOME OR

BOTH OUR

Wendy: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS TIME FOR YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, "BRING IT ON,"

AND PAT IS HERE TO ANSWER.

NORMA WRITES, "BOTH MY

HUSBAND AND I WORK.

I'M A CHRISTIAN BUT HE IS

NOT.

DO I TITHE ONLY ON MY INCOME

OR BOTH OF OUR INCOMES?"

Pat: IT IS YOUR INCOME

YOU'RE TITHING ON.

IF YOU WANT TO GET A SPECIAL

BLESSING FROM THE LORD, I

SUPPOSE YOU COULD GO THE

EXTRA FILE AND TITHE ON HIS,

TOO.

Wendy: IF HE IS OKAY

WITH IT.

Pat: YOU'D BE PAYING

OUT OF YOUR MONEY A TITHE

AGAINST WHAT HE OWES.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT SHE IS

SAYING.

YOU CAN'T TAKE HIS MONEY

AWAY FROM HIM UNLESS HE IS

RATHER SUBMISSIVE.

Wendy: YEAH, THAT COULD

BE DANGEROUS.

KERRY WRITES, "SINCE GOD IS

THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE

HOLY SPIRIT, DO I HAVE TO

PRAY TO GOD, OR CAN I JUST

PRAY TO JESUS, SINCE JESUS

IS GOD.

AND WHEN I PRAY TO JESUS, AM

I PRAYING TO JESUS, AM I

PRAYING TO GOD.

AND WHEN I PRAY TO JESUS,

ARE MY PRAYERS BEING

ANSWERED BY GOD?"

THIS IS A GOOD QUESTION.

Pat: I THINK THE GOD

HEAD IS A MYSTERY, THE

TRINITY IS A MYSTERY.

TECHNICALLY WE PRAY TO THE

FATHER IN THE HOLY SPIRIT,

IN THE NAME AND AUTHORITY OF

JESUS.

HE IS LIKE THE POWER OF

ATTORNEY.

SO WE SAY IN JESUS' NAME.

THAT'S OUR POWER OF

ATTORNEY.

I'M IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

TALKING TO THE FATHER.

THAT'S TECHNICALLY THE WAY

IT HAPPENS.

I DON'T THINK GOD GETS MAD

AT YOU IF YOU PRAY TO

JESUS.

HE DOESN'T GET MAD IF YOU

SAY OH, FATHER.

HE KNOWS OUR HEARTS.

WHAT HE IS INTERESTED IN HE

IS A SPIRIT.

THEY THAT WORSHIP MUST

WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND IN

TRUTH.

HE IS NOT ALL HUNG UP ON

FORMS, I DON'T THINK.

HE WANTS INTIMACY WITH OUR

SPIRIT MERGING INTO HIS

SPIRIT.

ALL RIGHT.

Wendy: MARGARITA

WRITES, "ARE SEA SHELLS BAD

LUCK?

I'VE ALWAYS HEARD THEY ARE.

HOWEVER, I'M A CHRISTIAN,

AND I KNOW A SHELL WON'T

HAVE THE POWER TO BRING EVIL

INTO MY LIFE.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR

THOUGHTS.

ALSO, HOW ABOUT WALKING

UNDER A LADDER?"

Pat: IF YOU'RE WALKING

UNDER A LADDER, AND IF A GUY

IS PAINTING, HE MIGHT HIT

YOU IN THE HEAD WITH A

BUCKET OF PAINT.

BUT THERE IS NOTHING

SUPERSTITIOUS ABOUT IT.

Wendy: OR WALKING ON A

CRACK.

Pat: THAT HASDO

WITH PAGANISM.

YOU GO ONLINE, AE

BLACK CAT COMES IN FRONT OF

YOUR PATH.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

SUPERSTITIONS, AND NONE OF

THEM HAVE ANY BIBLICAL

SIGNIFICANCE.

WE'RE NOT BOUND BY THOSE

THINGS.

KEEP THAT IN MIND.

Wendy: "I'M 13 YEARS

OLD, AND I HAVE A QUESTION:

CAN YOU GET MARRIED IN

HEAVEN?

WHAT IF I DIE ALONE, CAN I

FIND A SPOUSE IN HEAVEN?"

Pat: DAVID, I HATE TO

TELL YOU, BUDDY, IF YOU DIE

SINGLE, YOU'VE HAD IT.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET

MARRIED.

Wendy: DAVID, YOU'RE

ONLY 13.

YOU HAVE TIME.

Pat: RIGHT NOW YOU CAN

GET MARRIED.

BUT JESUS SAID, WE'RE LIKE

THE ANGELS.

THEY'RE NEITHER MARRIED NOR

GIVEN TO MARRIAGE IN

HEAVEN.

WE HAVE MARRIAGE FOR THE

PROCREATION OF CHILDREN.

YOU'RE LIKE ANGELS.

YOU'RE NOT MALEAND FEMALE

INHEAVEN.

YOU'RE ANGELS.

SO, NO,YOU WILL NOT GET

MARRIED IN HEAVEN.

I'M SORRY.

DO IT NOW.

YOU'RE 13, YOU BETTER

HURRY -- ONLY KIDDING.

Wendy: A VIEWER WRITES,

"IF YOU ARE SAVED AND THEN

BLOW IT BIG TIME, CAN YOUR

SALVATION BE TAKEN AWAY.

HOW CAN I KNOW WHEN I GET TO

HEAVEN I WON'T BE TURNED

AWAY?"

Pat: HOW DO WEKNOW

THAT WE ARE BORN AGAIN?

BECAUSE WELOVE THE

BRETHREN.

HOW DO WE KNOW WE'RE BORN

AGAIN BECAUSE WE ALWAYS DO

THE THINGS THAT ARE PLEASING

TO THE LORD.

HOW DO WEGOINGWE'RE

TO HEAVEN BECAUSE AS WE WALK

IN THE LIGHT, AS HE IS IN

THE LIGHT, WE HAVE

FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE

ANOTHER.

AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS

CHRIST CONTINUOUSLY CLEANSES

US FROM ALL SIN.

THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO DO.

AND WE JUST SHOULDN'T -- YOU

KNOW, I HEARD OF ONE YOUNG

MAN, AND THIS LADY

EVANGELIST WHO WERE OUT ON A

WALK IN A COUNTRY PLACE.

AND THEY GOT MORE AND MORE

INTIMATE.

AND FINALLY ATTHEIR AT THE

POINTOF ULTIMATE INTIMACY,

THIS LADY SAYS, O GOD,

FORGIVEUS FOR WHAT WE'RE

ABOUT TO DO.

AND THE OTHER GUY WAS SO

CRACKEDUP, IT KILLED THE

MOMENT.

O LORD, FORGIVE US FOR WHAT

WE'RE ABOUTTO DO.

THE IDEAIS DON'T SIN.

IF YOUSIN, HE'LL FORGIVE

YOU.

BUT YOU DON'T KEEP ON

SINNING.

IF ANYBODYIS BORN AGAIN, HE

DOES NOT CONTINUE IN SIN.

HOW DO YOUKNOW?

YOU KNOW BECAUSEYOU LOVE

HIM.

YOUKNOW BECAUSE YOU LOVE

THE BRETHREN.

YOU KNOW BECAUSEYOU HAVE

THE WITNESS OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT AND YOU'RE WALKING IN

THE LIGHT.

Wendy: CLAUDIA WRITES,

"I'M 69 YEARS OLD AND

CONTINUE TO WORK FULL-TIME.

I'M TRYING TO GET A

PART-TIME JOB TO SUPPLEMENT

MY INCOME.

I HAVE TITHED FOR 45 YEARS.

I CANNOT FIND AN EMPLOYER

WHO WILL GIVE ME A CHANCE

WHERE I WILL SUCCEED.

HOW CAN I KEEP DEPRESSION

AWAY AND STAY POSITIVE?"

Pat:IS 69?

Wendy: SHE IS 69 AND

LOOKINGFOR A FULL-TIME

JOB.

Pat: UNFORTUNATELY,

BECAUSEOF HEALTH ISSUES,

THERE AREVERY FEW EMPLOYERS

WHO ARE GOING TO EMPLOYEE

PEOPLE AT 69 YEARS OLD.

LET MESUGGEST THIS: THERE

ARE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

JOBS INTELEMARKETING, AND A

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

OPPORTUNITIES TO START YOUR

OWN BUSINESS.

I WASTALKING THE OTHER DAY

ABOUT MARY CROWLEY, HOME

INTERIOR BUSINESS, AND SHE

STARTED HER OWN BUSINESS AT

60.

I HAD LUNCH WITH MARY KAY,

OF MARY KAY COSMETICS, AND

SHE WAS 80 YEARS OLD AND

STILL LEADING THAT COMPANY.

ASK GODWHAT YOU'RE GOOD

AT.

MAYBE STARTOWN.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO ASK

SOMEBODY TO GIVE YOU A JOB.

YOU ASK THEHE HAS

GOT FOR YOU AND MAKE YOUR

OWN JOBS.

Wendy: MY GRANDMOTHER

STARTED PAINTING IN HER

60s, JUST BEAUTIFULLY.

LIKE GRANDMA MOSES' STYLE.

AND SHE IS 96 AND STILL

ALIVE.

SHE MAINLY GAVE THEM TO THE

FAMILY.

WE ALL LOVE THEM SO MUCH.

YOU KNOW, SHE IS 96 NOW, BUT

SHE STOPPED PAINTING FROM

AROUND 90.

SO FROM 60 TO 90 SHE WAS

PAINTING.

Pat: ASK THE LORD FOR

THAT.

INSTEAD OF SAYING I WANT TO

FIND A JOB.

I'M DEPRESSED AND I CAN'T

FIND A JOB.

ASK THE LORD.

HE HAS GREAT THINGS FOR

YOU.

Wendy: LIONI

WRITES, "I'M LOSING FAITH IN

GOD AND I'M HAVING A LOT OF

DOUBT ABOUT HIM.

I DON'T MEAN TO.

BUT SOMETIMES I'M CONFUSED.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE IS REAL.

WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT THIS

ISSUE?"

Pat: I'M A GREAT

BELIEVER OF GOING OFF BY

YOURSELF, AND WRITING A LIST

OF YOUR SINS, AND ASKING GOD

TO FORGIVE YOU AND THEN

TEARING THAT LIST UP.

AND BEGINNING TO WALK WITH

HIM AND PRAISE HIM.

A TIME OF RETREAT FOR

SEVERAL DAYS, WHERE YOU GET

AWAY FROM ALL OF THIS STUFF

AND YOU FOCUS ON THE LORD

AND YOUBEGIN TO WORSHIP AND

PRAISE HIM.

O THOU THAT INHABIT THE

PRAISES OF THY PEOPLE.

HE LIVES IN THE PRAISE OF

HIS PEOPLE.

YOU ENTERHIS COURSE

WITH PRAISE AND YOU COME

INTO HIS GATES WITH

THANKSGIVING.

YOUBEGIN TO THANK HIM AND

SPEND TIME THANKING HIM FOR

ALLHAS DONE INSTEAD OF

SAYING I HAVE DOUBTS AND I'M

NOT SURE YOU'REREAL.

STOPTHAT.

START THANKING HIM FOR YOUR

LIFE, AFAMILY --

WHATEVER YOU'VEGOT.

A LITTLE SONG WE USED TO

SING IN SUNDAY SCHOOL, COUNT

YOUR MANY BLESSINGS, NAME

THEMBY ONE, AND SEE THE

THINGS THAT GOD HASDONE.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS AND

THANKHIM FOR IT AND PRAISE

HIM FOR IT.

HE WILL INHABIT THE PRAISES

OF HIS PEOPLE.

Wendy: HE WANTS TO

REVEAL HIMSELF TO US.

Pat: EXACTLY.

AND THE WAY THAT HAPPENS IS

WE THANK AND PRAISE HIM.

NOT SIT THERE SAYING I DON'T

BELIEVE YOU'RE REAL.

THAT'S NOT IT.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

Pat: DENNI DENNIS

RODRIGUEZ IS A GREAT DAD AND

IS DEVOTED TO HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN.

RECENTLY HE FACED A HUGE

PROBLEM: DENNIS DIDN'THAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO FEED HIS

FAMILY.

Reporter: DENNIS

RODRIGUEZ HAD ALREADY BEEN

WITHOUT REGULAR EMPLOYMENT

FOR MONTHS.

AND EVERY DAY HE COULDN'T

FIND A JOB MEANT ANOTHER DAY

HIS CHILDREN WOULD SUFFER.

WITHOUT FOOD TO GIVE

THESE CHILDREN, I FELT VERY

ASHAMED.

Reporter: THEIR BABY

WAS THE YOUNGEST OF THREE

CHILDREN, AND SHE SEEMED TO

BE SUFFERING THE WORST.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

I WOULD TELL MY HUSBAND, THE

CHILD IS HUNGRY.

MY DAUGHTERS' CRIES MADE

MY HEART HURT.

I WOULD CRY, TOO, AND SAY,

LORD, HELP ME.

WHAT CAN I DO?

Reporter: THE PASTOR OF

THEIR CHURCH PRAYED FOR THE

FAMILY AND LOOKED FOR WAYS

TO HELP THEM.

ONE DAY HE HEARD ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING."

THE PASTOR SAID

"OPERATION BLESSING" STAFF

WAS COMING TO HELP US.

WE COULD NOT BELIEVE IT.

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

LATER "OPERATION BLESSING"

CAME TO THEIR HOME WITH

EVERYTHING THEY NEEDED TO

START A SMALL BUSINESS,

MAKING AND SELLING PIÑATAS,

A HONDURAN FAVORITE.

I WAS THE HAPPIEST

MOTHER.

I DIDN'T CRY WITH SADNESS,

BUT I CRIED WITH JOY.

Reporter: THE FIRST

DAY, THEY MADE 40, AND SOLD

EVERY ONE.

THE NEXT DAY IT HAPPENED

AGAIN.

NOW DENNIS CAN AFFORD TO BUY

MILK AND GOOD FOOD FOR HIS

CHILDREN.

THANK YOU FOR BLESSING

US.

MY FAMILY AND I LOVE YOU

VERY MUCH.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR HELPING US.

MY CHILDREN ARE NO LONGER

HUNGRY.

Pat: ISN'T ITWONDERFUL

THAT YOU CANMAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN SOMEBODY'S

LIFE.

YOU CAN HELPSOMEBODY THAT

IS POOR AND SUFFERING.

WE BELIEVE IN THAT.

WE BELIEVE IN REACHING OUT

TO PEOPLE WHO HURT.

YOU KNOW, I STARTED

"OPERATION BLESSING" YEARS

AND YEARS AGO, ON THE

STRENGTH OF THE 58th

CHAPTER OF ISAIAH.

WE JUST DID WHAT IT SAID

THERE.

AND WE STARTED HELPING

PEOPLE, AND OUT OF THAT HAS

GROWN A HUGE MINISTRY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

GIVEN$1.4 BILLION TO THE

POOR AND NEEDY AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND THAT'S WHAT YOU JUST

SAW.

THE RODRIGUEZ FAMILY IS ONE

EXAMPLE.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE,

I ASK YOU TO JOIN OUR "700

CLUB."

WE WANT TO GIVE YOU THIS.

IT'S CALLED "POWER FOR

LIFE."

WE HAVE WONDERFUL PRAYER

MEETINGS HERE AND WE TAKE

THESE PRAYER MEETINGS AND

MAKE LITTLE TAPES OF THEM

THAT'SSOMETHING THAT WE

GIVE TO THOSE WHO JOIN

PLEDGEEXPRESS.

TOMORROW, THERISING STAR

COUNTRY MUSIC BUSINESS.

THESE WORDS FROM 2 TIMOTHY:
