TERRY: WE WANT TO TAKE SOME

TIME, PAT THIS IS FROM JOY, WE

HAVE A SMALL BUSINESS, AT THIS

POINT IT IS STILL A STRUGGLE

FINANCIALLY.

WE ARE THINKING OF SELLING

LOTTERY TICKETS TO ADDING

ADDITIONAL

LOTTERY.

MY QUESTION,

IS

IT

A

SIN TO

SELL

LOTTERY

TICKETS.

PAT: JOY,

IT IS A

SIN

FOR

YOU

BECAUSE YOU ARE ASKING ME

ADVICE.

I CAN'T

SAY F

OR

EVERY STATE

THAT

SELLS

LOTTERY ALL

THE

PEOPLE

INVOLVED ARE

SINNERS.

I THINK

GAMBLING

IN

A SENSE

IS

THE WRONG

WAY

TO

MAKE

MONEY.

SO

MANY

ARE

HOOKED

ON

GET

RICH

QUICK.

THE

ODDS ARE

ASTRONOMICALLY --

THE LORD CAN GIVE YOU WAYS OF

MAKING MONEY.

TERRY: I UNDERSTAND PAUL

TALKS ABOUT NOT EATING MEET

SACRIFICED TO ANIMALS.

MEAT OFFERED UP THROUGH -- I

BELIEVE THE PORTION OF THE MEAT

COLLECTED ARE GIVEN TO -- I AM

SEEING IT MORE AND MORE ON

AMERICAN POLITICS.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

HALLO CONCEPT, FACE THE

ANIMAL TO MECCA AND SLIT HIS

THREAT.

OUR RESEARCH SHOWS AND TEAM

DISCOVERED, A PORTION FROM

ALL

OF

THESE

HAHLOL, IT IS A

QUESTION OF WHERE DOES THE MONEY

GO.

IF YOU BUY THE FOOD, YOU ARE

SENDING MONEY TO THE

BROTHERHOOD, THEY IN TURN

SUPPORT HAMAS AND ISLAMIC

JIHADIST.

HAMAS PARTICULARLY OTHER RADICAL

ORGANIZATIONS.

THAT IS THE DANGER.

ALL RIGHT.

TERRY: THIS IS LISA, PAT, MY

DAUGHTER PURCHASED AN AMBER

TEETHING NECKLACE, IT IS

SUPPOSED TO HELP FUSSINESS, I

HAVE NOTICED MY GRANDSON SEEMS

DIFFERENT, SOMETHING IS NOT

RIGHT.

I CAN'T PUT MY FINGER ON IT.

I KNOW THERE ARE SOME OF THESE

CRYSTALS AND STONES USED IN

WRONG SPIRITUAL PRACTICES.

THERE WAS STONES IN THE BREAST

PLATES OF THE 12 TRIBES, DOW DO

YOU THINK THERE ARE SPIRITUAL

ATTACHMENTS TO THE BABY, CAN

SOMETHING BAD BE USED?

PAT: NEITHER ONE IS CORRECT.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN ST.

PETERSBURG, THEY HAVE AN AMBER

ROOM.

FAMOUS ROOM FILLED WITH AMBER.

THE AMBER IS THE DISTILLATION OF

SAP FROM THE TREES OVER THE

YEARS.

THE BEADS ARE BEAUTIFUL.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY

SPIRITUAL CONNOTATION.

IF THE LITTLE KID IS SUCKING ON

THEM HE MAYBE GETTING

POISONED.

IT IS NOT MEANT AS A TEETHING

RING.

THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.

ALL THE NEW AGE STUFF ABOUT

AMBER IS NON SENSE.

THAT IS WHERE IT IS COMING FROM.

TERRY: SO MANY OTHER

CHOICES.

YOU CRANE HAS A LOT OF IT.

THEY DO

PICTURES IN AMBER.

PAT: IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

IT IS THE SAP.

IT GOES WAY BACK, HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF YEARS.

YOU SEE SOME WHERE THEY HAVE

CAUGHT INSECTS.

TERRY: QUITE INTERESTING.

PAT: IF THE KID IS SUCKING ON

AMBER, HE IS PROBABLY GETTING

SICK.

TERRY: LAST YEAR I QUIT MY

JOB AT A LOCAL TV STATION, NOW I

FEEL LIKE I AM LIVING OUTSIDE MY

WILL.

I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND OR KEEP

A JOB.

I AM ALWAYS ONE MONTH AWAY FROM

EVICTI

EVICTION.

I HAD BREAST CANCER LAST YEAR,

HOW DO I GET GOD TO RESTORE MY

WILL?

I PRAY AND ASK FOR HIM TO

RESTORE ME, CURRENTLY I HAVE NO

MONEY COMING IN, WHEN I DO, I

TITHE.

PAT: YOU MADE A MAJOR LIFE

DECISION WHEN YOU QUIT YOUR JOB.

GO BACK TO WHERE YOUR JOB WAS

AND SAY LISTEN, ANY CHANCE YOU

COULD USE VIDEOGRAPHER, OR

WHATEVER IT IS YOU DID.

GOD ISN'T GOING TO BEAT YOU UP.

YOU NEED TO SAY I MISSED YOU,

LORD.

I WENT

ASTRAY.

I WASN'T LISTENING.

THE BIBLE INDICATES YOU'LL HEAR

A VOICE WHEN YOU TURN TO THE

RIGHT OR LEFT YOU JUST

DIDN'T

PRAY IT THROUGH.

GOD IS WITH YOU.

YOU JUST DON'T HAVE A JOB ON A

TV STATION.

TERRY: THANK YOU FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS, WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE

YOU TO CONTINUE TO TELL US.
