The 700 Club - Oct. 15, 2013

Bunty is a youth gone wild who earns time in prison, which is exactly where he needs to be to transform his life. Plus, David's addiction to nicotine was no match for the power of God. Read Transcript


"WE WERE VERY FEARFUL."

I REMEMBER MY MAMA KICKING

MY BROTHER IN THE STOMACH.

TO MOST-WANTED.

THE JUDGE TOLD ME I WAS A

MENACE TO SOCIETY.

A CAREER CRIMINAL GETS

BUSTED.

I WAS ARRESTED 49 TIMES.

AND FINDS FREEDOM ON THE

OTHER SIDE.

THERE WAS A PEACE THAT I

HAD THERE THAT I DIDN'T HAVE

ANYWHERE ELSE.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

YOU KNOW, I HATE TO SAY IT,

BUT THERE DOES NOT EXIST IN

OUR NATION THE NECESSARY

WILL WILL BRIN TO BRING

ABOUT A COMPREHENSIVE REFORM

OF OUR FINANCIAL SYSTEM.

BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE

TAKING SOMETHING FROM THE

GOVERNMENT, AND NOBODY WANTS

TO GIVE THEIR PERKS UP,

NOBODY.

SO THE SENATE, ONCE AGAIN --

THE LEADERSHIP HAVE SAID WE

HAVE GOT A DEAL.

WE KICK THE CAN DOWN THE

ROAD UNTIL JANUARY.

AND THEN WE GO BACK AND

START FIGHTING ALL OVER

AGAIN.

BUT, WELL, THE HOUSE HASN'T

YET APPROVED THIS, BUT

THEY'VE REALLY GOT NO CHOICE

BECAUSE WE CANNOT HAVE A

SHUTDOWN PLUS A DEFAULT ON

OUR DEBT.

Terry: WELL, IT DOES

LIKE THE DEAL UNDER

DISCUSSION WOULD ONLY BE

TEMPORARY, SO WASHINGTON

COULD BE RIGHT BACK WHERE IT

IS NOW IN JUST A FEW

MONTHS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: SENATE

LEADERS HARRY REID AND

MITCHELL MCCONNELL ARE GOAFG

I CLOSING IN ON A DEAL THAT

WOULD REOPEN THE GOVERNMENT

UNTIL JANUARY 15th, AND

EXTEND THE TREASURY

DEPARTMENT'S ABILITY TO

BORROW MONEY UNTIL

MID-FEBRUARY.

EVERYBODY NEEDS TO BE

PATIENT.

I THINK IT IS SAFE TO SAY

WE'VE MADE SUBSTANTIAL

PROGRESS, AND WE LOOK

FORWARD TO MAKING MORE

PROGRESS IN THE NEAR

FUTURE.

Reporter: ANY AGREEMENT

THAT REID AND McCONNELL

REACH WILL LIKELY PASS IN

THE SENATE, BUT THE BIG

QUESTION IS WHETHER OR NOT

THE REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED

HOUSE WILL GET ON BOARD.

UNDER THE NEW DEAL, THERE

WILL BE NO MAJOR CHANGES TO

OBAMACARE.

DEMOCRATS SHOOTING DOWN

EFFORTS BY REPUBLICAN TO

REPEAL A MEDICAL DEVICE TAX

THAT MEMBERS OF BOTH PARTIES

ARE AGAINST.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT

THE WHITE HOUSE?

Reporter: LATER TODAY

LAWMAKERS WILL ARE BRIEFED

ON THE REID-McCONNELL

DEAL.

AND BOEHNER WILL HAVE TO

DECIDE WHETHER TO ALLOW A

HOUSE VOTE ON THE

AGREEMENT.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THE REPUBLICANS

HAVE GOT TO WAVE THE WHITE

FLAG AND SAY IT IS OVER.

THEY CANNOT BRING THE

GOVERNMENT DOWN AND THEN

BRING DOWN A DEFAULT.

WE CAN'T DO IT.

IT WOULD BE DEVASTATING

ECONOMICALLY TO EVERY HUMAN

BEING, AND THE REPUBLICANS

JUST CAN'T GET TARRED WITH

THAT.

SO THEY TRIED.

AND IF THEY GO TO THE

ELECTORATE AND SAY WE

TRIED.

OBAMACARE WAS AWFUL.

WE TRIED TO GET IT UNDER

WAY, AND WE WEREN'T

SUCCESSFUL.

THE DEMOCRATS WANTED IT.

THEY FOUGHT FOR IT, AND THEY

WOULDN'T LET GO.

SO IT IS THEIR BILL.

THEIR PROGRAM.

WELL, WE'LL HAVE MORE ON

WHAT IS CALLED OBAMACARE.

I CALL IT DEMOCRAT-CARE,

WITH A SPECIAL GUEST IN A

FEW MOMENTS.

FIRST, STILL ANOTHER REPORT

ON HOW BIG THE GOVERNMENT'S

ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE

PROGRAM REALLY IS.

IT IS SHOCKING.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: SHOCKING IS

RIGHT, PAT.

THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY

IS COLLECTING INFORMATION

FROM E-MAIL ADDRESS BOOKS

AND INSTANT MESSAGING

ADDRESSES AROUND THE WORL.

THE "WASHINGTON POST"

REPORTS THAT THE N.S.A.

INTERCEPTS THE INFORMATION

AS IT MOVES ELECTRONICALLY

AROUND THE WORLD.

AN INTELLIGENCE SPOKESMAN

TELLS THEM THE AGENCY IS

INTERESTED IN FINDING

INFORMATION ABOUT HUMAN

TRAFFICKING AND DRUG

SMUGGLERS, AND ISN'T

INTERESTED IN ORDINARY

INFORMATION.

LUKE RUSSERT, THE SON OF TIM

RUSSERT, TELLS CBN NEWS THE

MAJOR MEDIA IS BIAS AGAINST

PEOPLE ON FAITH.

HE TOLD DAVID BRODY, THERE

IS LITTLE PATIENCE FROM

MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA WHEN IT

COMES TO TRYING TO

UNDERSTAND THOSE WHO HOLD

DEEP RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS.

THE CURRENT WORLD IN

WHICH WE LIVE IN,

SPECIFICALLY WITH THE

AMERICAN MEDIA, SNARKS IT'S

VALUE.

IT IS VERY EASY TO COME

AFTER PEOPLE OF FAITH, NO

MATTER WHAT THEY'RE RELIGION

IS.

YOU'RE SORT OF TAGGED WITH

THIS LABEL OF BEING

PURITANICAL, AND NOT BEING

UNDERSTANDING OF OTHERS OR

DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS.

I THINK IT'S KIND OF -- IT'S

LAZY, NUMBER ONE, AND I

THINK IT IS SOMETHING THAT

JUST FEEDS THE SNICKERING

MASSES, IF YOU WILL, IN THAT

REGARD.

YOU CAN WATCH MORE OF THE

INTERVIEW BY GOING TO

cbnnews.com AND CLICKING ON

"THE BRODY FILE" BLOG.

NO SURPRISE THERE, THE

PEOPLE IN THE MEDIA ARE BIAS

AGAINST PEOPLE OF FAITH?

Pat: NO SURPRISE.

HIS FATHER IS A GREAT GUY.

I WAS ON MEET THE PRESS WITH

HIM, AND HE WAS DEFINITELY A

MAN OF FAITH.

HE WAS A DEVOUT CATHOLIC, A

REALLY NICE GUY.

WE MOURN HIS PASSING.

HE DIED OF A HEART ATTACK AT

ESSENTIALLY AN EARLY AGE,

AND I'M GLAD HIS SON IS

CARRYING ON THE TRADITION OF

HIS VERY DISTINGUISHED

FATHER.

JOHN?

Reporter: AT LEAST 85

PEOPLE WERE KILLED WHEN A

7.2 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE HIT

THE CENTRAL PHILIPPINES, IT

BROUGHT DOWN BUILDINGS AND

HISTORIC CHURCHES AND

CRACKED ROADS.

IN THE CITY OF SABU, PEOPLE

IN A GYM RUSHED OUTSIDE IN A

PANIC, CRUSHING FIVE PEOPLE

TO DEATH AND INJURING EIGHT

OTHERS.

18 OTHER PEOPLE WERE INJURED

IN A SCRAMBLE TO GET OUT A

SHAKING OFFICE BUILDING IN

ANOTHER CITY.

OFFICES AND SCHOOLS WERE

CLOSED FOR A NATIONAL

ISLAMIC HOLIDAY, WHICH MAY

HAVE HELPED TO SAVE LIVES.

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF HOME

HOMELESS IN THE AFTERMATH IN

THE WORSE CYCLONE TO HIT

INDIA IN YEARS.

MANY ARE RETURNING TO THEIR

DEVASTATED VILLAGES, AND CBN

IS BRINGING THEM HOPE WITH

DISASTER RELIEF TEAMS IN THE

AREA, PROVIDING MUCH-NEEDED

HELP.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: SATANA AND

HER HUSBAND LIVE IN A

VILLAGE IN THE EAST.

THE CYCLONE BATTERED THE

AREA.

AUTHORITIES EVACUATED THIS

COUPLE, AND NEARLY A MILLION

OTHER INDIANS LIKE THEM, TO

NEARBY SHELTERS.

THAT'S THE REASON THE DEATH

TOLL IN THIS AREA WAS

MINIMAL, COMPARED TO ONE 14

YEARS AGO, WHEN 10,000

PEOPLE DIED.

WHEN FATAMA AND SALA

RETURNED, THEY DISCOVERED

THEIR HUMBLE HOME WAS STILL

STANDING, BUT BADLY DAMAGED

BY THE CYCLONE.

SADLY THE STORM SURGE HAD

WASHED AWAY ALL OF THEIR@n

BELONGINGS AND THEIR

CLOTHINGS.@j@j

SHE WAS OVERWHELMED.

OUR CLOTHES ARE GONE, OUR

BOATS ARE GONE.

WHAT WILL WE EAT?

Reporter: SHE WORRIED

ABOUT THEIR DAMAGED HOME,

AND HOW WOULD HER HUSBAND,

WHO MAKES A MEAGER DAILY

WAGE, BE ABLE TO PAY FOR

REPAIRS.

WHEN THE CBN DISASTER RELIEF

TEAM LEARNED OF THEIR

PLIGHT, THEY BROUGHT THEM

FOOD, CLOTHING AND SOAP.

THEY EVEN RECEIVED A CHECKUP

AT A CBN EMERGENCY CLINIC.

WHAT ABOUT THAT ROOF?

AT FATMA'S DELIGHT, CBN

BROUGHT THEM A ROOF.

AS THE CBN TEAM SAID THEIR

GOOD-BYES, FATTAH QUICKLY

GOT DOWN TO WORK.

YOU GAVE TARP, YOU GAVE

MEDICINE, YOU GAVE RICE, YOU

GAVE A TOWEL, YOU GAVE

LENTILS -- YOU GAVE

EVERYTHING.

THANK YOU 10,000 TIMES.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: WE CAN'T HELP THEM

ALL, BUT WE'RE HELPING WHAT

WE CAN.

I'M SO GRATEFUL WE CAN HAVE

A TEAM THERE IN YOUR NAME

DURING THESE TERRIBLE

DISASTERS.

IT IS SO TRAGIC THAT THE

DISASTERS LIKE THE CYCLONES

SEEM TO HIT WHERE THE

POOREST PEOPLE ARE, AND THE

ONES THAT ARE AT SUBSISTENCE

TO START.

IT BREAKS YOUR HEART.

BUT THOSE PEOPLE ARE

COURAGEOUS, AND THEY WILL

REBUILD.

Terry: THEY WILL

REBUILD.

AND WHAT A BLESSING THIS

WASN'T AS DEVASTATING AS THE

LAST ONE.

Pat: HE SAID 10,000,

AND I WAS UNDER THE

IMPRESSION THAT IT KILLED

200,000 -- I MAY BE IN

ERROR.

Terry: THIS IS WHERE IT

IS SO WONDERFUL WE HAVE

OFFICES AROUND THE WORLD,

WHERE WE CAN IMMEDIATELY GET

TO THE DISASTER AND MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

Pat: WE DID THAT IN

INDONESIA, AND I'M VERY

PROUD BECAUSE WE WERE THERE

IN ANDAACHI, AND WE BROUGHT

IN BOATS TO HOPE THOSE

PEOPLE.

THEY'RE MUSLIM PEOPLE, BUT

THEY APPRECIATED THE

CHRISTIANS HELPING THEM.

Terry: BEN FRANKLIN

ONCE FAMOUSLY SAID, "THERE

IS NOTHING CERTAIN IN LIFE

BUT DEATH AND TAXES."

NOWADAYS, WE MAY BE GETTING

A LOT MORE OF BOTH THANKS TO

RECENT LAWS PASSED BY OUR

GOVERNMENT.

WE'RE GOING TO EXPLAIN, AND

THAT'S NEXT.

*

Pat: THEY CALL IT

OBAMACARE.

ITS TECH NUL TECHNICAL NAME

IS AFFORDABLE CARE.

THERE IS PROMISE YOU

WOULDN'T LOSE YOUR HEALTH

CARE.

AND PROMISE THAT THE

PREMIUMS WOULD GO DOWN.

HOW BAD IT?

WE HEAR REPORTS FROM ALL

OVER THE COUNTRY ABOUT

DISASTERS.

IT IS SO EASY TO SAY THAT IS

JUST A FEW COMPUTER GLITCHES

AND THEY'LL FIX THAT UP.

WE HAVE AN EXPERT ON THAT.

HE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED

"HEALTH CARE REFORM, AND

WHAT'S THERE," SO IT IS A

GREAT PLEASURE TO WELCOME

GORDON D'ANGELO.

GORDON, THANKS FOR COMING

BACK.

LOOK, GIVE US THE SKINNY.

YOU'VE BEEN OUT IN THE

COUNTRY TALKING TO THE

PEOPLE.

WHAT DO THEY SAY?

WELL, THE BIGGEST THING

IS THAT MOST OF AMERICA IS

COMPLETELY CONFUSED.

Pat: I CAN BELIEVE

THAT.

THEY HAD A BIG THING THE

OTHER DAY WHERE PEOPLE WERE

TOLD IT IS OBAMACARE, DO YOU

LIKE THAT BETTER OR

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.

AND PEOPLE SAID AFFORDABLE

BECAUSE IT IS THE SAME

THING, AND IT IS THE SAME

THING.

I TALKED TO BUSINESSES, AND

THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE.

I TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE

COVERED, AND THEY DON'T HAVE

A CLUE.

AND THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF

HURT THAT HAS COME OUT OF IT

THAT IS MEASURABLE.

AS FAR AS THE FUTURE OF THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, MAYBE

IT WILL BE GREAT.

IT CERTAINLY HASN'T GOTTEN

OFF TO THAT START.

Pat: THERE ARE

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PAGES.

HOW DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHAT

THEY ARE?

THE POLITICIANS FORCED TO

SIGN IT, WERE FORCED TO SIGN

IT BEFORE READING IT.

AND I DON'T KNOW ANYBODY

WITH INTELLIGENCE THAT COULD

SIGN TWO PAGES WITHOUT

READING IT, AND NOT 20,000.

AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY

BEEN HURT WHO ARE WORKING

AND THEY SAY, LET THEM

RECOVER THEM.

RETIREES, AMAZING, THEY'VE

WORKED THEIR WHOLE LIFE, AND

NOW HEALTH CARE BECOMES MORE

PROMINENT TO THEM, AND

THEY'VE BEEN GIVEN A STIPEND

OR A MIXED AMOUNT.

THIS JUST HAPPENED, IBM,

GENERAL ELECTRIC, TIME

WARNER, HAS SAID WAIT A

MINUTE, WE'RE PUTTING OUR

RETIREES ON THIS FIXED PLAN,

AND ALTHOUGH THEY EXPECT

HEALTH INSURANCE TO RISE 70%

TO 300%, THESE RETIREES ARE

NONOW OUT ON THEIR OWN TO

COVER THE HIGHER COSTS,

SHOULD THEY COME.

Pat: ON THE BASIS OF IT

BEING A TAX, THEY SAY IT IS

CONSTITUTIONAL.

YOU SAY IT IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

WHY?

FIRST OF ALL, THEY DIDN'T

READ IT.

THE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHO IT

IS ABOUT.

EVEN THE POLITICIANS DON'T

QUITE UNDERSTAND IT.

I CHALLENGE THEM TO COME ON

THE SHOW AND ANSWER

QUESTIONS.

THEY'LL BE STUTTERING.

AND IF IT IS A FEDERAL LAW,

WHICH IT IS, YOU AND I CAN

LIVE ON THE SAME STREET,

WORK A BLOCK AWAY, MAKE THE

EXACT SAME SALARY, HAVE THE

SAME MARITAL STATUS, AND,

GUESS WHAT, YOU COULD BE

EXEMPT ON I'M NOT.

Pat: WHY?

BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT HAS

GIVEN OVER 1400 WAIVERS TO

CORPORATIONS AND UNIONS AND

TO SOME GOVERNMENT AGENCIES,

INCLUDING THE I.R.S., WHO IS

REGULATING THIS, THAT

THEY'RE EXEMPT FROM THE

LAW.

HOW DO YOU HAVE A FEDERAL

LAW AND THE AMERICAN

CITIZENS ARE EXEMPT?

I DON'T QUITE UNDERSTAND

THAT.

Pat: THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES SAID OKAY,

YOU'VE EXEMPTED THESE

PEOPLE, AND HOW ABOUT

EXEMPTED THE CHOLE NATION

EXEMPTING THE WHOLE NATION

FOR A YEAR AND FIGURE THIS

OUT.

OBAMA WOULD NOT ALLOW THAT.

WHY?

I DO BELIEVE IT IS

POLITICALLY CONNECTED.

EVEN THE TEAMSTERS HAVE

GOTTEN IS BECAUSE SOME OF

THE UNIONS HAVE GOTTEN IN.

SO JOE WORKS AT ONE UNION

AND HE IS EXEMPT AND ANOTHER

IS NOT.

Pat: WHY ISN'T THIS

ISSUE BEING RAISED IN THE

COURTS?

I THINK IT WILL.

I THINK THE PERIL OF IT AND

THE FINANCIAL SUBSCRIPTIONS

OF IT WILL COME AS WE SEE IN

MORE TIME.

AND THERE HAS BEEN, AS I

MENTIONED, MORE TAXES.

IF YOU'VE BEEN LUCKY

ENOUGH -- I CALL IT THE

SUCCESS TAX.

IF YOU'VE HAD ANY SUCCESS IN

YOUR LIFE, YOU'RE GOING TO

GET TAXED MORE.

WHETHER YOUR A SMALL

BUSINESS OR A COUPLE OR AN

INDIVIDUAL, THERE IS TAX ON

YOUR INVESTMENT INCOME NOW.

THERE IS EXTRA PAYROLL

TAXES.

THERE ARE TAXES ON MEDICAL

DEVICES, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS,

AND EVEN PROSTHETICS.

AND THOSE TAXES ARE GOING TO

BE PASSED DOWN TO THE PEOPLE

WHO HAVE TO PAY FOR THEM,

THE SUPPLIERS, OR GET HEALTH

INSURANCE.

Pat: EVEN THE DEMOCRATS

SAY WE'RE AGAINST THIS

MEDICAL DEVICE TAX, AND YET

WHEN THE REPUBLICANS IN THE

HOUSE TRIED TO GET IT

CANCELLED, THEY WERE OPPOSED

BY THESE GUYS, AND THEY

SAID, NO, WE'RE GOING TO

HOLD ON TO IT.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS

GOING ON?

I THINK IT IS POLITICAL

OR LOBBYING, OR THINGS THAT

AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE

HAPPENING IN WASHINGTON, BUT

THEY CLEARLY ARE HAPPENING

BECAUSE THE LOBBYIST GROUPS

GOT THE WAIVERS AND WANT

SOME OF THIS TAX ON THINGS

THAT ISN'T BEING REPEALED.

THE I.R.S. IS NOW IN CHARGE

OF THIS, AND YOUR PENALTIES

ARE PAID FOR AFTER TAX,

WHICH IS A PROBLEM.

AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT THE

INSPECTOR GENERAL OF THE

I.R.S., THE CURRENT ONE,

SAID WE DON'T WANT TO DO

IT.

AND HE SAID THIS WILL LEAD

TO PROBLEMS.

THIS IS THE PERSON THAT'S

THE INSPECTOR GENERAL, SO IT

IS NOT JUST ME MAKING THIS

STATEMENT.

AND, BY THE WAY, DON'T CALL

THE I.R.S. TODAY.

THEY'RE CLOSED.

UNLESS YOU OWE THEM MONEY,

YOU CAN SEND IT.

THEY HAVEN'T FUNDED THE

REFUNDS, BUT THEY'RE JUST

COLLECTING THE MONEY.

Pat: WHAT IS GOING ON?

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE

ACTUALLY SIGNED UP?

DOES ANYBODY KNOW?

THEY CLAIM IT IS A BIG

NUMBER.

THAT'S ANOTHER INTERESTING

THING BECAUSE IT IS HANDLED

BY STATE.

ANOTHER SITUATION COULD BE

WE COULD BE IN THE SAME AGE

AND THE SAME SITUATION AS

BEFORE, AND EVERYTHING ABOUT

US IS THE SAME, BUT YOUR

COST COULD BE DIFFERENT

DEPENDING ON WHAT STATE

YOU'RE IN BECAUSE IT IS RUN

BY THE STATES -- THE STATES

ARE PRETTY MUCH RUNNING IT.

Pat: IS THERE ANY WAY

TO GET RID OF THIS WITHOUT

ELECTING ANOTHER PRESIDENT?

THIS THING IS A

MONSTROSITY.

WHY DON'T THE PEOPLE RISE UP

AND SAY WE'VE HAD IT?

THEY HAVE CREATED SO MUCH

CONFUSION, THAT MOST OF THE

PEOPLE ARE UNAWARE.

ONE OF THE REASONS I LIKE

ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT BEING

SHUT DOWN, IS BECAUSE SOME

OF THE -- LET'S JUST SAY

UNWISE DECISIONS ARE BEING

ILL LUM ILLUMINATED.

CERTAINLY THE AFFORDABLE

CARE ACT IS GOING TO CREATE

THAT NON STOP.

IT DISCRIMINATES AGAINST

MARRIED COUPLES.

CORPORATIONS WHO ARE PAYING

FOR PRESCRIPTIONS FOR

RETIREES NO LONGER CAN

DEDUCT IT.

SO HERE IS A CORPORATION --

Pat: THE CORPORATION

CANNOT DEDUCT PAYMENTS THEY

PAY TO RETIREES?

YES.

Pat: WHY?

IT'S IN THE LAW.

Pat: THAT'S DRACONIAN.

THAT'S AWFUL.

THE MORE I READ, THE MORE

I SAY I SOUND LIKE YOU

BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE DON'T

KNOW MOST OF THESE ITEMS.

THAT'S WHY THE CORPORATION

SAYS WAIT A MINUTE, WE CAN'T

GET THE DEDUCTION, WE'LL

FIND A WAY TO GET RID OF

IT.

THE CORPORATIONS WILL HIGHER

THE BIGGER ONES AND PAY

WHATEVER IT TAKES --

Pat: WHO WROTE THAT

MONSTROSITY?

I THINK IT WAS A STAFF

APPOINTED BECAUSE IT IS 20

PLUS THOUSAND PAGES, TO

ACCOMPLISH CERTAIN THINGS.

CERTAINLY IT WAS GROUPS OF

PEOPLE.

ONE PERSON COULDN'T HAVE

WRITTEN IT.

Pat: WHAT WAS THE THING

THEY WANTED TO ACCOMPLISH?

THEIR CLAIM WAS TO GET

THE 31 MILLION TO 43 MILLION

PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT INSURED,

INSURED.

AND OVER TWO THIRS OF

TWO-THIRDS OF THOSE PEOPLE

ARE UNDER 40 YEARS OLD, SO

THEIR URGENCY ISN'T THAT

MUCH.

BUT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO PAY

TAXES, YOU'RE GOING TO END

UP PAYING MORE TAXES.

OLDER PEOPLE ARE GOING TO

PAY MORE FOR SUPPLIES, AND

THE HEALTH INSURANCE

COVERAGE WILL RISE, SO

THEY'RE GOING TO BE HURT.

IF YOU'VE HAD SOME

INVESTMENT INCOME IN YOUR

LIFE, YOU'RE GOING TO BE

HURT, TOO.

Pat: I APPRECIATE YOU

BEING WITH US.

WE'RE HORRIFIED, AND THE TEA

PARTY FOLKS TRIED TO GET

THIS THING MODIFIED, BUT

THEY WERE UNSUCCESSFUL, AND

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE

TURNED AGAINST THEM.

SO FOR MORE ON HOW OBAMACARE

AFFECTS YOU, GORDON HAS A

BOOKLET CALLED "HEALTH CARE

REFORM," AND YOU CAN GET IT

THROUGH CBN.COM.

"HEALTH CARE REFORM."

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU, PAT.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A

MUSLIM WHO BECAME A MENACE

TO SOCIETY.

I WAS ARRESTED 29 TIMES

FOR 49 OFFENSES.

IT WAS FOR POINTING A

FIREARM.

POSSESSION OF CRACK

COCAINE.

Terry: AND THAT WAS ALL

BEFORE HE TURNED 21.

FIND OUT WHAT SET HIM

STRAIGHT WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: WELCOME BACK TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE BRING YOU THINGS ON THIS

PROGRAM YOU MIGHT NOT HEAR

SOME PLACE ELSE, AND THIS

STORY IS ONE YOU PROBABLY

HAVEN'T HEARD BEFORE.

BUT THERE WAS A GUY NAMED

BUNTI DESOR, WHO WAS A

DEVOUT MUSLIM AND HE HAD TO

OBEY THE QURAN.

WHY?

BECAUSE HIS DEVOUT MOTHER

WOULD GIVE HIM FITS IF HE

DIDN'T.

SHE EVEN KICKED THE BROTHER

OF THE STOMACH WHO ATE

PORK.

YET ISLAM, FOR THAT MOTHER,

HAD AN UNINTENDED SIDE

EFFECT.

IT DROVE HER CRAZY.

AND IT SENT BUNTI INTO A

LIFE OF CRIME.

IF WE DIDN'T SAY THE

PRAYERS RIGHT OR THE QURAN

RIGHT, OR WE WEREN'T DOING

THE PRAYERS FIVE TIMES ADAY,

MY MOT WA MOTHER WAS VERY

STRICT ON ME AND MY

SIBLINGS.

Reporter: BUNTI HAS

REASON TO BE AFRAID.

HIS MOTHER, A MUSLIM,

SUFFERED FROM MENTAL

ILLNESS.

AND NOTHING ANGERED HER MORE

THAN DISOBEDIENCE AGAINST

THE QURAN.

WE WOULD GET A BEATING IF

WE ATE ANY KIND OF PORK

WHILE WE WERE AT SCHOOL.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME MY MAMA,

YOU KNOW, KICKING MY BROTHER

IN THE STOMACH BECAUSE HE

HAD EATEN PORK AT SCHOOL.

Reporter: HIS FATHER

RARELY INTERVENED.

HE PRETTY MUCH LET MOM

RUN THE HOUSE WITH ISLAM.

Reporter: BUNTI'S MOM

SUFFERED A NERVOUS BREAK

DOWN AND RECEIVED

TREATMENT.

WHEN SHE FINISHED, SHE NO

LONGER ABUSED HIM.

BUNTI USED HIS NEWFOUND

FREEDOM TO GET ATTENTION HE

WAS MISSING.

WHEN I WAS 12, I STARTED

USING DRUGS AND ALCOHOL.

EVENTUALLY I GOT INVOLVED IN

MARIJUANA AND CRIMINAL

ACTIVITY.

I WAS GETTING ATTENTION THAT

I NEVER GOT BEFORE FROM MY

PEERS, AND IT WAS FUN.

Reporter: WHEN HE GOT

OLDER AND MOVED OUT, HE

DISCOVERED A DARK AND GRITTY

WORLD HE KNEW NOTHING

ABOUT.

PROSTITUTION AND PEOPLE

SCAMMING AND PEOPLE

MANIPULATING, AND PEOPLE

GETTING SHOT AND PEOPLE

GETTING ROBBED.

Reporter: WHEN HE WAS

19, HE HAD A SON, DEVIN,

WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND.

BUT HE DIDN'T STOP HIS WILD

LIFESTYLE AND IT WAS

CONSTANTLY IN AND OUT OF

JAIL.

I WAS ARRESTED 49 TIMES

FOR 29 OFFENSES.

IT WAS FOR POINTING A

FIREARM, DISPATCHING A

FIREARM, POSSESSION OF

ALCOHOL BY A MINER,

POSSESSION OF CRACK COCAINE

WITH THE INTENT TO

DISTRIBUTE.

Reporter: HE ALWAYS

MANAGED TO GET OFF EASY, SO

HE SAW NO REASON TO STOP.

THERE IS A HIGH, A RUSH.

YOU HAVE THE POPULARITY, YOU

HAVE THE MONEY, YOU HAVE THE

CARS, YOU HAVE THE HOMES,

YOU HAVE THE GIRLS.

EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE LIKE

YOU.

SO IT IS AN ALLURE.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

HIS LIFESTYLE CAUGHT UP WITH

HIM.

HE WAS 20 WHEN HE WAS

ARRESTED AGAIN FOR DEALING

DRUGS.

THIS TIME THE JUDGE WASN'T

SO LENIENT.

I WENT TO COURT AND THE

JUDGE TOLD ME I WAS A MENACE

TO SOCIETY AND HE SENTENCED

ME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF

CORRECTIONS FOR 16 YEARS.

WHEN I GOT BACK TO THE JAIL

CELL, I WAS BROKEN.

I HAD NEVER BEEN BROKEN

BEFORE.

THIS PARTICULAR THING, I

DIDN'T SEE A WAY OUT OF.

Reporter: THEN HE

REMEMBERED A STORY HE HEARD

ABOUT ANOTHER DRUG DEALER.

I HAD HEARD THAT THIS

INDIVIDUAL THAT WAS SELLING

DRUGS HAD GIVEN THEIR LIFE

TO CHRIST, AND CHRIST HAD

CHANGED HIM.

AND IN MY HEART, I BELIEVED

IF CHRIST COULD DO IT FOR

HIM, CHRIST COULD DO IT FOR

ME.

Reporter: THAT DAY

BUNTI DID SOMETHING HE HAD

NEVER DONE BEFORE.

I GOT DOWN ON MY KNEES,

AND I SAID, LORD, JESUS,

COME INTO MY HEART.

I KNOW YOU'RE REAL.

I HAVE LIVED FOR ALLAH ALL

OF MY LIFE AND I'VE GOTTEN

NOTHING BUT PAIN AND TROUBLE

AND I'M ADDICTED.

I WANTED GOD TO GIVE ME A

NEW LIFE.

EYI WANTED GOD TO HELP ME

THROUGH THE 16 YEARS.

IN MY MIND, I COULDN'T WALK

THIS JOURNEY.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS ON

THE OTHER SIDE, AND I NEEDED

GOD'S HELP TO GET THROUGH

THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

Reporter: THE FIRST

THING HE DID WAS GET A

BIBLE.

HE HAD QUESTIONS BECAUSE OF

HIS ISLAMIC UPBRINGING.

ACTUALLY, I HAD SOME

CONCERNS ABOUT, LIKE, THE

DEITY OF CHRIST.

I HAD SOME CONCERNS ABOUT

THE TRINITY OF GOD.

THERE WERE SOME FACES THERE

THAT WERE GREY FOR ME AND I

DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.

BUT I KNEW WHEN I WENT TO

CHURCH AND I KNEW WHEN I

READ THE WORD, THERE WAS A

BASE PEACE I HAD THERE

THAT I DIDN'T HAVE APLACE

ELSE.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS HE GREW IN HIS FAITH.

IN SPITE OF SEEING PEOPLE

GETTING STABBED AND ROBBED

ALL AROUND ME, I FOUND A

SECRET PLACE I COULD GO WITH

GOD.

Reporter: HE ALSO USED

THE TIME INSIDE TO EARN A

DOCTORATE IN MINISTRY.

AND WHILE STILL IN PRISON,

HE SHARED HIS FAITH WITH HIS

PARENTS AND LED BOTH OF THEM

TO CHRIST.

I'M JUST SO BLOWN AWAY BY

THAT.

TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO

LEAD MY MOTHER TO CHRIST,

AND TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY

TO SAY THE SINNER'S PRAYER

WITH MY FATHER.

Reporter: AFTER 14

YEARS, BUNTI WAS RELEASED,

AND HE IS NOW MARRIED.

AND HE AND HIS WIFE STAY

BUSY.

HE SAYS GOD HAS GIVEN HIM A

NEW LIFE.

I HAVE A BRAND NEW LEASE

ON LIFE.

HE HAS GIVEN ME A BRAND NEW

START, AND I'M FOREVER

GRATEFUL TO HIM FOR THAT.

Pat: HOW MANY OF YOU

ARE TROUBLED?

HOW MANY OF YOU ARE

CONFUSED?

HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN

TOMORRO TORMENTED?

IN BUNTI'S CASE, HE WAS

TORMENTED, IN PRISON, A

REBEL.

HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU GET

ARRESTED.

HE DID EVERYTHING WRONG, AND

THE JUDGE SAID YOU'RE A

MENACE TO SOCIETY.

WHAT IS THAT TURMOIL?

YOU WOULD THINK GOD WOULD

JUST WANT TO KILL HIM.

YOU WOULD THINK GOD WOULD

JUST WANT TO KILL HIM AND

GET RID OF HIM.

HE WAS A BOTHER.

HE WAS A MENACE TO SOCIETY

AND A BLOT ON THE GOOD NAME

OF THE LORD.

BUT GOD DIDN'T DO THAT.

HE REACHED DOWN AND SAW

SOMETHING IN THAT MAN THAT

WAS WONDERFUL.

AND HE LOOKS AT YOU AND HE

SEES SOMETHING WONDERFUL.

AND YOU SAY, BUT YOU DON'T

UNDERSTAND HOW IMMORAL I'VE

BEEN.

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW

MUCH I'VE HURT SO MANY

PEOPLE.

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW

MANY LAWS I'VE BROKEN.

YES, GOD UNDERSTANDS ALL OF

THAT.

HE UNDERSTANDS EVERYTHING

YOU'VE DONE THAT IS WRONG.

WHAT HE SAYS TO YOU TODAY

IS, MY CHILD, I LOVE YOU.

AND I WILL MAKE SOMETHING

BEAUTIFUL OUT OF YOU IF YOU

JUST TURN YOURSELF OVER TO

ME.

AND BUNTI DID IT.

HE GOT ON HIS KNEES AND HE

SAID YES TO JESUS.

AND THEY DIDN'T JUST

INSTANTANEOUSLY LET HIM OUT

OF PRISON, EITHER.

HE STAYED THERE AND HE WOUND

UP STUDYING AND LEARNING AND

GROWING IN THE FAITH.

WHEN HE CAME OUT, HE WAS

LIKE GOLD.

HE WAS PURE AS GOLD.

DO YOU WANT TO BE FREE OF

SIN?

DO YOU WANT TO HAVE PEACE

WITH GOD?

DO YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO

ACCOUNT FOR SOMETHING?

DO YOU WANT TO ACCOUNT FOR

SOMETHING?

WHY ARE YOU HERE ON EARTH?

GOD HAS YOU FOR A PURPOSE?

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE?

HE'LL SHOW IT TO YOU IF

YOU'LL LET HIM.

WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS

REAL SIMPLE.

I WANT YOU TO SAY THE SAME

PRAYER THAT BUNTI PRAYED.

I WANT YOU TO SAY, JESUS,

COME INTO MY LIFE AND TAKE

OVER.

IF YOU MEAN IT IN YOUR

HEART, HE WILL HEAR YOUR

PRAYER AND HE WILL SET YOU

FREE FROM WHATEVER HAS GOT

YOU.

IT MAY BE DRUGS.

IT MAY BE SEX ADDICTION.

IT MAY BE PORNOGRAPHY.

IT MAY BE HATRED.

IT MAY BE UNCONFESSED SIN.

WHATEVER IT IS, HE'LL SET

YOU FREE.

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

PRAY THESE WORDS AND MEAN IT

IN YOUR HEART, AND WATCH

WHAT GOD WILL DO.

DO IT RIGHT NOW.

NOW!

THESE WORDS, SAY THEM WITH

ME AND MEAN THEM IN YOUR

HEART.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW ME.

YOU KNOW ME BETTER THAN I

KNOW MYSELF.

YOU KNOW THE THINGS I'VE

DONE.

YOU KNOW HOW I'VE VIOLATED

YOUR LAW.

YOU KNOW HOW I'VE VIOLATED

ALL THE PRINCIPLES THAT YOU

HAVE ESTABLISHED.

BUT, LORD, I KNOW THAT YOU

ARE A GOD WHO FORGIVES.

AND I COME TO YOU HUMBLY,

AND I ASK FOR FORGIVENESS.

NOT BECAUSE I DESERVE IT,

BUT BECAUSE YOU EXTENDED

GRACE TO ME ON THE CROSS OF

JESUS CHRIST.

AND SO I CALL ON THAT

GRACE.

BY GRACE YOU'RE SAVED.

AND I ASK FOR THE GRACE TO

COME INTO MY LIFE RIGHT

NOW.

COME INTO ME, LORD.

LIVE YOUR LIFE IN ME, AND I

WILL LIVE FOR YOU.

AND I WILL SERVE YOU ALL THE

DAYS OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU'VE

HEARD MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE COME

INTO MY HEART.

AND FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO

PRAYED WITH ME JUST THEN,

MAY THE ANOINTING POWER OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON

THEM AND WE BREAK THE HOLD

OF SATAN.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED AND YOU FEEL

SOMETHING DIFFERENT, I WANT

YOU TO CALL IN AND TELL

SOMEBODY WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING

CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT'S A C.D., 73 MINUTES, A

VERY CONCENTRATED DISCUSSION

ON WHAT TO DO NEXT.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU FREE

IF YOU CALL AND SAY, I JUST

PRAYED WITH PAT AND I GAVE

MY HEART TO THE LORD.

1-800-759-0700.

COUNSELLORS ARE ON THE PHONE

WHO LOVE YOU.

DON'T BE AFRAID.

JUST PICK UP THE PHONE.

THEY LOVE YOU.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO HURT

YOU.

JUST SAY I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I'D LIKE THAT LITTLE

BOOKLET.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

YOU CALL RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: IF YOU HAVE

QUESTIONS ABOUT FAITH OR

CHRISTIAN LIVING, WE'RE HERE

FOR YOU.

FOR EXAMPLE, WYATT ASKS, "MY

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER SAID

SHE BELIEVED IN THE

IMMACULATE CONCEPTION.

SHE SAYS MARY DIED WITHOUT

EVER HAVING COMMITTED A SIN

IN LIFE.

IS THAT TRUE?

DID MARY DIE SINLESS?"

WE'RE GOING TO ANSWER THAT

QUESTION AND MORE ON TODAY'S

SHOW.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

ANYBODY HAS DONE.

GOD CAN RESTORE THAT LIFE,

NO MATTER HOW MESSED UP AND

MUCH OF A DISASTER THEY'VE

MADE OF IT.

IF THEY'VE STILL GOT

BREATH.

LIKE THAT FATHER RAN TOWARDS

THAT SON, IF THEY WOULD

TURN, HE WOULD DO WHAT HE

DID FOR ME.

HE WOULD TAKE OFF RUNNING

TOWARDS THEM, WRAP HIS ARMS

AROUND THEM, FORGIVE HIM,

AND CHANGE THEIR LIFE.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

ISLAMIC POLICE IN NORTHERN

NIGERIA CONO STATE WILL

BEGIN I ENFORCING SHARI'A

LAW THERE.

10,000 OFFICERS WILL BE ON

THE STREETS MAKING SURE ALL

CITIZENS, INCLUDING

CHRISTIANS, ADHERE TO THE

STRICT ISLAMIC LEGAL CODE.

THE FORCE HAS ORDERS TO

ARREST ANYONE WEARING

INDECENT DRESS, SUCH AS

SLEEVELESS SHIRTS AND

CUTOFFS BELOW THE KNEE.

CONO IS ONE OF NINE STATES

IN NORTHERN NIGERIA THAT

HAVE INTRODUCED SHARI'A

LAW.

SOUTHERN NIS NIGERIA IS

MOSTLY CHRISTIAN AND RULED

BY SECULAR LAW.

ONLY MUSLIMS CAN USE THE

WORD ALLAH TO REFER TO GOD

IN MALAYSIA.

THE COURT UPHELD A CHRISTIAN

BAN ON CHRISTIANS.

ALLAH IS AN ARABIC WORD FOR

GOD THAT HAS BEEN USED BY

CHRISTIANS FOR MORE THAN A

THOUSAND YEARS.

BUT THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT

SAYS IT SHOULD BE USED ONLY

BY MUSLIMS TO AVOID

CONFUSION.

THE DECISION RESULTED IN A

BACKLASH THAT SAW ANGRY

MUSLIMS ATTACK AND BURN

CHURCHES.

THE NEW RULING OVERTURNS

THAT DECISION.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

MALAYSIA SHAN

Terry: MUMBAI IS ONE OF

THE LARGEST CITIES IN THE

WORLD, AND HOME TO MORE THAN

SEVEN MILLION CHILDREN.

MANY OF THESE CHILDREN GROW

UP IN ABJECT POVERTY,

INCLUDING ONE ORPHAN WHO WAS

ABANDONED BY HER FAMILY.

RUTH'S FATHER DIED WHEN SHE

WAS JUST ONE YEAR OLD.

THEN HER MOTHER LEFT HER AT

A BABY-SITTER'S HOUSE AND

NEVER CAME BACK.

THE SITTER KEPT RUTH, BUT AS

RUTH GOT OLDER, THE FAMILY

TREATED HER LIKE A SERVANT.

MY SISTER-IN-LAW ALWAYS

MADE ME SCARED.

MY AUNTS WOULD BE IN SO MUCH

PAIN.

AND IF I EVER PUT HER BABY

DOWN, SHE WOULD YET AT ME

AND BEAT ME.

Terry: THE FAMILY MADE

RUTH SIT IN THE YARD FOR

HOURS WASHING CLOTHES.

SHE DEVELOPED PAINFUL SORES

AND ABSCESSES.

I WAS OFTEN WEAK, AND

OFTEN GOT VERY SICK.

SOMETIMES I WAS SO DIZZY, I

FELL DOWN.

Terry: SCHOOL WAS HER

ONLY PLACE OF REFUGE, BUT

THAT, TOO, WAS TAKEN AWAY.

MY FOSTER PARENTS TOLD ME

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY MORE

MONEY TO PAY FOR MY TUITION,

SO I HAD TO DROP OUT OF

SCHOOL.

Terry: WHEN HER FOSTER

FATHER DIED, HER FOSTER

MOTHER COULDN'T EVEN AFFORD

TO FEED HER.

A NEIGHBOR TOLD HER ABOUT A

PROGRAM SPONSORED BY

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" AND

SUGGESTED THEY SEND RUTH

THERE.

I GOT LOTS OF GOOD

SCHOOL, AND ALL OF MY HEALTH

PROBLEMS WENT AWAY.

IT FELT LIKES HEAVEN.

Terry: WE ALSO ENROLLED

RUTH IN A SCHOOL CLOSE TO

THE CHILDREN'S HOME.

I WAS VERY HAPPY TO GO TO

MY NEW SCHOOL.

THE TEACHERS TREATED ME SO

NICELY.

Terry: AT THE

CHILDREN'S HOME, SHE ALSO

LEARNED ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

ONE DAY I WENT TO A

PRAYER MEETING.

WHEN THE PEOPLE PRAYED TO

GOD, I FELT LIKE CRYING, AND

RIGHT THE THEN I STARTED

PRAYING.

I PRAYED TO GOD TO TAKE MY

LIFE AND MAKE ME A NICE

GIRL.

WHEN THE PRAYER MEETING

FINISHED, I FELT SO FREE.

Terry: TODAY RUTH IS A

HAPPY AND CONFIDENT LITTLE

GIRL, WHO KNOWS SHE IS LOVED

AND CARED FOR.

MY LIFE IS VERY NICE.

I THANK THE LORD THAT HE

USED TO PROTECT ME.

Terry: NOW, GOD'S WORD

SAYS THAT PURE RELIGION IS

TO TAKE CARE OF ORPHANS AND

WIDOWS, AND THAT'S ONE OF

THE THINGS THAT CBN IS DOING

THROUGH "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

AROUND THE WORLD.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR

HELPING US BE THERE FOR

CHILDREN LIKE RUTH, CHILDREN

WHO HAVE NO ONE TO BELONG

TO, NO ONE TO ENCOURAGE

THEM, NO ONE TO HELP THEM

DREAM ABOUT THEIR FUTURES.

AND OFTEN, AS IN RUTH'S

CASE, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN

NO EDUCATION.

WITHOUT EDUCATION, THERE IS

NO HOPE FOR FUTURE.

THANK YOU FOR LETTING US

PROVIDE THAT.

WILL YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB"

TODAY?

WHEN YOU DO, YOU'RE REACHING

OUT TO CHILDREN LIKE RUTH

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

AND WE SAY WE NEED YOU.

SO PLEASE STAND WITH US.

AT 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, AND THAT MAKES YOU A

"700 CLUB" MEMBER.

YOU'RE JOINING THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WHO ARE OUT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD, ALL

IN THE LOVE OF JESUS

CHRIST.

SO GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL

RIGHT NOW.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, YES, I

WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

AND WE WELCOME YOU TO THE

FAMILY OF MINISTRIES HERE.

Pat: TERRY, BEFORE YOU

GO PAST THAT, YOU KNOW THERE

IS THE STORY OF CINDERELLA.

THERE IS A LITTLE OR FAN,

AN -- ORPHAN, AND SHE SITS

BY THE FIREPLACE.

BUT THAT GIRL, RUTH, THEY

BEAT HER IF SHE DIDN'T DO

EVERYTHING?

Terry: YEAH.

THIS HAPPENS VERY OFTEN,

PAT.

WE SEE IT, WHERE THERE IS AN

EXTENDED FAMILY IN A CULTURE

WHERE THEY WILL TAKE A CHILD

IN, BUT THEY ALMOST BECOMES

LIKE SERVANTS.

AND THEY'RE NOT ALLOWED TO

GO TO SCHOOL OR STUDY, LIKE

THE SIBLINGS BORN IN THE

FAMILY THAT IS KEEPING

THEM.

A LOT OF THEM LIVE IN

POVERTY, SO THE FAMILY

DOESN'T HAVE A LOT OF MONEY

TO BEGIN WITH.

IN INDIA IT IS A CAST THING,

BUT IN OTHER COUNTRIES --

Pat: THEY FEED THEM

SCRAPS.

AND THEY HAVE TO SIT OUTSIDE

IN THE RAIN.

AND THEY BEAT THEM FOR THE

SLIGHTEST PROVOCATION.

IT JUST BREAKS YOUR HEART.

Terry: BUT WHAT IS

REALLY AMAZING, WHEN THESE

CHILDREN COME INTO A LOVING

HOME ENVIRONMENT, AND WE

DON'T GET INVOLVED IN LARGE

INSTITUTIONS.

WE ARE IN FAMILY-SETTING

ORPHANAGES.

THEY BLOSSOM.

THEY'RE SO HAPPY AND

GRATEFUL TO BE THERE.

THEY'RE HAPPY TO GO TO

SCHOOL.

YOU KNOW, IT IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY.

Pat: TERRY STARTED

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" UNDER THE

AUSPICES OF CBN, BUT YOU

HAVE HOW MANY?

40,000 OR 50,000 -- HOW MANY

ORPHANS?

Terry: AROUND THE

WORLD?

Pat: YEAH.

Terry: IT FLUCTUATES,

BUT PROBABLY THE NUMBER

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT -- YOU

KNOW IT CHANGES WITH EACH

OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE.

SOMETIMES WE HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO GO IN AND

PROVIDE SOMETHING THAT IS A

ONE-TIME LARGE NEED.

OTHER TIMES WE HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO HELP BY

BUILDING A KITCHEN FACILITY

OR A SCHOOL.

OR SOMETHING THAT MAKES AN

ONGOING DIFFERENCE IN THEIR

LIVES.

Pat: YOU HAVE A

MOTHER'S HEART, AND, BOY,

YOU REACH OUT TO THESE

ORPHANS.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU

CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING

BETTER.

THAT LITTLE CHILD, HOPELESS,

AND SOMEBODY REACHES DOWN

AND SAYS, THERE IS AN

ORGANIZATION THAT WILL TAKE

YOU AND BLESS YOU AND GIVE

YOU AN EDUCATION.

GIVE YOU CLEAN CLOTHES.

FEED YOU.

GIVE YOU MEDICAL CARE, AND

LET YOU G GROW UP TO BE THE

PERSON THAT GOD WANTS YOU TO

BE.

Terry: WHO KNOWS WHAT

IS GOING TO COME OUT OF

THAT?

WE COULD BE RAISING AND

EDUCATING LEADERS OF

NATIONS.

Pat: IT COULD ANOTHER

GANDHI.

Terry: EXACTLY.

AND CAN I SAY, ALSO, WHEN

YOU BECOME PART OF THE

MINISTRIES HERE AT CBN, WE

WANT TO SEND YOU PAT'S

LATEST TEACHING, AND IT'S

CALLED "HOW SHALL WE NOW

LIVE?"

AND SALLY SAYS, "THE HOW

SHALL WE NOW LIVE D.V.D.

WITH PAT AND SCOTT IS THE

BEST.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

CONTINUING TO REACH OUT TO

ALL OF US IN DOING GOD'S

WILL."

THANK YOU SO MUCH, SALLY.

WE'RE GLAD YOU ENJOYED IT.

Pat: TIME TO ANSWER

SOME QUESTIONS.

Terry: WYATT SAYS,

"INSID, "I'M 14 YEARS OLD

AND I GO TO A CATHOLIC

SCHOOL.

MY SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER

SAYS SHE BELIEVES IN

IMMACULATE CONCEPTION.

AND I ASKED WHAT THAT MEANS,

AND SHE SAID MARY WO WAS

BORN AND DIED WITHOUT

COMMITTING A SIN.

IS THAT TRUE, MARY DIED

WITHOUT A SIN?"

Pat: I KNOW NOTHING IN

THE BIBLE THAT BACKS THAT

UP.

WE KNOW THAT MARY WAS A

VIRGIN, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

CAME UPON HER AND CONCEIVED

IN HER THE SON OF GOD.

MARY WAS BORN AS A MR.

NORMAL GIRL LIVING IN

PALESTINE.

THERE WAS NOTHING ABOUT HER

BEING CONCEIVED

IMMACULATELY.

IN THE FIFTH CENTURY, THE

CATHOLICS BEGAN TO TALK

ABOUT IT, BUT IT WASN'T AN

OFFICIAL DOCTRINE AROUND THE

14th CENTURY OR 15th

CENTURY, AS I UNDERSTAND

FROM SOME OF OUR RESEARCH

PEOPLE.

SO IT WAS SOMETHING THAT

LATER CAME AS THEY BEGAN TO

WORSHIP MORE AND MORE THAN

AND TURNED TO MARY.

BUT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY

NOTHING IN THE BIBLE -- WHEN

YOU LOOK AT MARY, SHE

OFFERED TURTLE DOVES AND

SACRIFICE --

Terry: JUST LIKE

EVERYBODY ELSE.

Pat: AND IF SHE WAS

IMMACULATE AND SINLESS, SHE

WOULDN'T HAVE TO BE OFFERING

SACRIFICE.

IT IS A NON-BIBLE CONCEPT

AND A LATER ACCRETION OF OUR

CATHOLIC FRIENDS.

Terry: JOHN SAYS, "MY

PARENTS ARE FORCING ME TO

PRAY TO A FALSE GOD.

I BELIEVE IN JESUS.

WILL GOD FORGIVE ME?"

Pat: WHEN YOU'RE BY

YOURSELF, YOU CAN PRAY TO

WHOEVER YOU WANT TO.

OF COURSE GOD WILL FORGIVE

YOU.

I REMEMBER THE STORY OF

NAMAN, THE LEPER.

AND HE SAID I'M GOING TO GO

INTO THE TEMPLE WITH MY

BOSS, AND HE IS GOING TO BE

PRAYING WITH THIS FALSE GOD,

AND IF I BOW DOWN, WILL YOU

PLEASE FORGIVE ME?

I THINK THE SAME THING

HERE.

GOD IS NOT GOING TO HOLD YOU

ACCOUNTABLE TO BEING FORCED

TO PRAYER IN SOMETHING YOU

DON'T BELIEVE IN.

Terry: NIA SAYS, "WHAT

ARE THE REASONS THAT SOMEONE

GOES TO HELL?"

Pat: THE WAY TO GO TO

HEAVEN IS THROUGH JESUS

CHRIST.

BY GRACE YOU'RE SAVED

THROUGH FAITH, AND THAT, NOT

OF YOURSELF, IS A GIFT OF

GOD.

YOU ASK JESUS CHRIST TO COME

IN.

YOU ACCEPT HIS SACRIFICE FOR

YOU.

THAT PAYS THE PRICE FOR YOUR

SINS, AND IT OPENS THE DOOR

OF HEAVEN.

IF YOU'RE BORN AGAIN, YOU

WILL.

OF COURSE THERE IS A CHANCE

FOR SOMEBODY LIKE YOU.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: ARNOLD SAYS,

"WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED AND

CLAIMED TO HAVE GONE TO

HELL, AND HAD THESE

EXPERIENCES.

DO YOU FEEL THEY REALLY WENT

TO HELL IN THE FIRST

PLACE?"

Pat: PAUL SAID AN ANGEL

OF HEAVEN WILL BRING YOU THE

GOP AND WHAT I'VE

PREACHED -- IF IT ISN'T IN

ACCORDANCE WITH THE

SCRIPTURE, I WON'T BELIEVE

IT.

WE HAVE PEOPLE HERE WHO HAVE

DIED AND GONE TO HELL AND

COME BACK AGAIN AND RELATED

ACCOUNTS VERY MUCH IN

ACCORDANCE WITH SCRIPTURE.

I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: WH "WHY DID

JESUS CAST THE DO DEMONS

INTO THE HERD OF PIGS?"

Pat: I WISH YOU WOULD

SPEND TIME THINKING HOW YOU

CAN SERVE GOD INSTEAD OF ALL

OF THESE QUESTIONS.

FIRST OF ALL, IT WAS ILLEGAL

FOR JEWS TO HAVE PIGS.

FOR STARTERS.

A MAN WAS FILLED WITH A

LEGEND OF DEMONS, AND JESUS

WAS SAYING TO THEM, I'M

GOING TO CAST YOU INTO THE

PIT, WHICH MEANT THEY WERE

GOING TO BE CONDEMNED TO

HELL FOREVER.

AND THEY SAY, OH, NO, PLEASE

DON'T DO THAT.

LET'S GO INTO THESE PIGS.

AND SO JESUS SAID, OKAY.

I'LL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER.

YOU ASKED TO GO INTO THE

PIGS, I'LL LET YOU GO INTO

THE PIGS.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED?

THOSE GUYS WERE DOING

SOMETHING ILLEGAL.

AND SO THOSE PIGS WERE

UNCLEAR ANIMALS.

THE DEMONS WENT INTO THE

PIGS.

IT KEPT THE DEMONS FROM

GOING INTO THE PIT.

BUT IT DROVE THE PIGS

CRAZY.

AND THEY RUSHED DOWN A HILL

AND DROWNED.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DEMONS,

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE

TO BE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENS TO A LEGEND OF

DEMONS THAT IS POSSESSING A

MAN AND DRIVING HIM CRAZY.

SO THAT'S HOW COME.

AND THEY ASKED FOR IT.

AND INSTEAD OF GOING INTO

THE PIT RIGHT AWAY.

LET'S GO INTO THOSE SWINE.

AND JESUS SAID, OKAY, YOU

ASKED FOR IT.

AND SO HE ANSWERED THEIR

PRAYER AND THEY GOT WHAT

THEY ASKED FOR.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR TODAY.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS.

Pat: WHEW!

A FEW MORE LIKE THAT AND I'M

IN TROUBLE.

Terry: UP NEXT, A CHAIN

SMOKER WHO TRIED TO HIDE HIS

ADDICTION.

I WOULD CHEW STUFF AT

WORK.

WHERE LEAF TOBACCO IS A

LITTLE OBVIOUS.

IT JUST GOING TO THE POINT

AFTER A PERIOD OF TIME, I

WAS ALWAYS DOING IT.

Terry: FIND OUT HOW HE

FINALLY KICKED HIS HABIT.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: WELL, EVERYONE

KNOWS THAT NICOTINE WREAKS

HAVOC ON YOUR HEALTH, BUT

THAT HASN'T STOPPED MILLIONS

OF AMERICANS FROM SMOKING.

FOR DECADES, DAVID WAS ONE

OF THEM, UNTIL HE KICKED THE

HABIT IN AN INSTANT.

Reporter: DAVID AF

AFALTER STARTED SMOKING AS A

TEENAGER.

IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE HE WAS

ADDICTED.

I GUESS YOU COULD CALL ME

A CHAIN SMOKER SOMETIMES.

SOMETIMES I COULD GO LONG

PERIODS, SOCIALIZING WITH

FRIENDS.

Reporter: HE TRIED TO

STOP SEVERAL TIMES, BUT

WOULD OFTEN PULL HIS

CIGARETTES BACK OUT OF THE

TRASH.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I

WISHED I WASN'T SMOKING

ANYMORE.

WHERE I TRIED TO QUIT.

YOU LOOK AT A PACK OF

CIGARETTES AND SAY, I WISH I

DIDN'T HAVE TO DO THIS.

OF COURSE, EVERYBODY WHO

KNOWS WHAT IT IS LIKE TO

SMOKE OR TO HAVE THAT

NICOTINE HABIT, YOU KNOW HOW

HARD IT IS TO BREAK THAT.

AND I FELT POWERLESS TO

STOP.

Reporter: HE THOUGHT

CHEWING TOBACCO WOULD BE

BETTER FOR HIS HEALTH, AND

EXCHANGED ONE ADDICTION FOR

ANOTHER.

CHEWING HAD WHAT I

THOUGHT WAS A STRONGER POWER

OVER ME.

IT JUST GOT TO THE POINT

AFTER A PERIOD OF TIME I WAS

ALWAYS DOING IT.

IF YOU COULD CHEW SNUFF AT

WORK, SOMEBODY WOULD WORK.

WHERE LEAF TOBACCO WAS A

LITTLE OBVIOUS.

Reporter: DAVID WORKED

NIGHTS FOR YEARS, AND WOULD

COME HOME IN TIME TO WATCH

THE MORNING BROADCAST OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

I WAS GETTING HOME EVERY

MORNING JUST ABOUT THE TIME

"THE 700 CLUB" IS COMING

ON.

SO I BEGAN TO WATCH THAT.

AND I WAS WATCHING THIS.

THIS IS THE TIME WHERE WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU.

AND THIS PARTICULAR DAY HE

MENTIONED CHEWING TOBACCO.

TOBACCO.

Pat: YOU'RE A SLAVE TO

IT.

WHAT IS NICOTINE?

YOU'RE A SLAVE TO IT.

YOU'RE GOD'S CHILD.

LIVE LIKE IT, AND LET HIM

COME IN AND TAKE OVER.

AND YOU SAY FROM THIS MOMENT

ON, I'M GOING TO BE FREE.

AND DAY BY DAY BY DAY, YOU

REAFFIRM THAT COMMITMENT, IN

JESUS' NAME I'M FREE.

I THOUGHT, MAN, I'D

REALLY LIKE TO DO THIS.

I HEARD WHAT HE SAID ABOUT

GOD SAYING, IF YOU QUIT

RIGHT NOW, ZIP, THAT'S IT.

THEN YOU WON'T HAVE THIS

ANYMORE.

YOU WON'T HAVE ANYMORE

CRAVINGS OR DESIRES.

I MEAN, THE DESIRE, THE WANT

TO WANT TO, EVERYTHING, IS

GOING TO BE GONE.

LONG STORY SHORT, YEAH, I

PRAYED WITH HIM.

Reporter: DAVID

IMMEDIATELY GOT RID OF ALL

OF HIS TOBACCO PRODUCTS.

I WASN'T GOING TO JUST

FLOW IT AWAY.

I FLUSHED IT.

THERE IS NO WAY I COULD GO

BACK AND RETRIEVE IT LATER.

I DUMPED IT ALL.

I JUST GOT RID OF IT.

BEFORE THE END OF THAT DAY,

I NOTICED ALREADY THAT I

DON'T HAVE ANY DESIRE

WHATSOEVER FOR THIS STUFF.

I HAVEN'T REACHED FOR IT.

I HAVEN'T HAD THAT CRAVING

OR ANYTHING.

Reporter: 10 YEARS HAVE

PASSED, AND DAVID HAS NEVER

GONE BACK.

NO WITHDRAWALS.

NO SHAKING.

NO IRRITABILITY.

THERE IS NO CRAVINGS, NO

DESIRE WHATSOEVER.

I MEAN, IT WAS GONE.

IT WAS LIKE -- AND I TOLD

MIABLE IT WA PEOPLE IT WAS

LIKE I HAD NEVER SMOKED OR

CHEWED BEFORE.

AND I HAVE NEVER TRIED IT

SINCE.

HE SET ME FREE.

Terry: I DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOU NEED TO BE SET FREE

FROM, BUT I KNOW WHAT YOU

CANNOT DO FOR YOURSELF, GOD

CAN AND WILL DO IF YOU

SURRENDER AND GIVE HIM THE

OPPORTUNITY.

IT IS TIME FOR PRAYER TODAY,

AND I WANT TO SHARE AN

ANSWER TO PRAYER TO BUILD

FAITH.

MAUREEN IS FROM ALBERTA,

CANADA.

SHE HAD SEVERAL NODULES IN

HER LUNGS HAVING TROUBLE

BREATHING.

PAT, YOU SAID THERE IS

SOMEBODY HAVING TROUBLE

BREATHING, AND THERE IS

FLUID IN YOUR LUNGS.

SHE TOOK ONE BREATH, AND A

TEST PROVED THE NODULES WERE

GONE, AND NOW SHE IS

PRAISING GOD.

Pat: IN PENNSYLVANIA,

THERE IS SOMEBODY NAMED

DARRIN, WHO JUST HAD A TOOTH

INFECTION THAT INVADED HIS

JAWBONE.

HIS JAWBONE IS EATEN BY THIS

INFECTION.

AND, TERRY, YOU HAD A WORD.

YOU HAVE AN INFECTION INTO

YOUR WISDOM TOOTH THAT IS

GOING INTO THE BONE OF THE

JAW.

YOU DIDN'T KNOW DARRIN --

Terry: NO.

Pat: AND YOU STILL

DON'T KNOW HIM.

DARRIN SAID THAT IS FOR ME,

AND HE OPENED HIS MOUTH

WIDE, AND HE WAS ABLE TO DO

IT PAIN-FREE AND HE HASN'T

HAD ANY DISCOMFORT SINCE.

WHEW!

LET'S PRAY.

GOD IS ABLE TO DO

EXCEEDINGLY ABOVE ANYTHING

YOU WANT OR CAN CONCEIVE.

FATHER, WE ARE NOT ABLE, BUT

YOU'RE ABLE.

FATHER, WE COME BEFORE YOU

WITH THE NEEDS OF THE

PEOPLE, AND THEY ARE GREAT.

ALL OVER THIS AUDIENCE, AND

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD

ARE SUFFERING AND THEY'RE

CRYING OUT TO YOU FOR

ANSWERS.

LORD, PLEASE HEAR THEIR

PRAYERS.

TOUCH THEM.

THERE IS SOMEBODY WITH A

SENSE OF DREAD IN YOUR

LIFE.

RIGHT NOW I COME AGAINST

THAT SPIRIT OF FEAR THAT HAS

SEIZED YOU IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE

WHOLE AND BE MADE FREE.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE WHO HAS SOME KIND OF

NODULE THAT HAS INVADED YOUR

STOMACH.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW, AND YOU'RE JUST

GOING TO BE COMPLETELY SET

FREE.

Pat: THERE IS A PALSY,

AND IT ISN'T ANY OF THE

WELL-KNOWN DISEASES, BUT

YOU'RE SHAKING.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS REACHING

OUT.

REACH OUT AND TAKE THAT

HAND, AND SAY IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, TOUCH.

THAT SHAKING IS GONE IN

JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE WHO HAS HAD AN

OUTBREAK, IT SOUNDS CRAZY,

BUT WARTS ON YOUR FEET THAT

HAS MADE IT SO UNCOMFORTABLE

TO BE ABLE TO WEAR SHOES AND

WALK COMFORTABLY.

THEY'RE GOING TO LITERALLY

FALL OFF AND YOU'LL NOT HAVE

IT ANYMORE.

Pat: MAY THE PEACE OF

GOD COME IN TO YOUR LIFE,

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

THE PEACE OF GOD IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

WHEW!

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

WE ARE GOING TO HIT THE ICE

TOMORROW WITH NHL SHANE

DOAN.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 1 JOHN:

"LET US NOT LOVE WITH WORDS

OR SPEECH, BUT WITH ACTION

AND IN TRUTH."

I APPRECIATE YOU BEING WITH

US.

FOR TERRY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

GOOD-BYE.

GOD BLESS YOU.

AND WE WILL SEE YOU

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
