The 700 Club - Oct. 17, 2013

Marie Monville shares how life changed when her husband killed himself and five Amish school children. Plus, Phyllis suffered from debilitating bone spurs in her shoulder, but a 700 Club prayer paved the way for God to work a miracle. Read Transcript


A STRAIN OF DISEASES THAT

ANTIBIOTICS CAN'T KILL.

EVEN SIMPLE INFECTIONS

CAN BE DEADLY.

HEAR THE STARTLING

REASONS WHY THESE DISEASES

ARE IMMUNE, AND HOW TO

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM

INFECTION.

AND THEN, MARRIED TO A

MURDERER.

SEVEN YEARS AFTER THE AMISH

SCHOOL SHOOTING, THE WIFE OF

THE GUNMAN SPEAKS OUT.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

TERRY IS HERE WITH US.

TERRY, I WANT TO ASK YOU A

QUESTION.

WE JUST HAD A DOWN TO THE

MINUTE VOTE BY THE

CONGRESS.

THE PRESIDENT SIGNED THE

LAW.

WE DIDN'T GO INTO DEFAULT.

IT WAS TENSE.

THE WHOLE NATION WAS

WAITING.

THE BANKS WERE ON EDGE.

AND GUESS WHAT CONGRESS DID

ALONG WITH THAT BILL?

WHAT WOULD YOU THINK IN THAT

TENSE MOMENT, WHEN THEY HAD

TO SAVE THE COUNTRY?

Terry: WELL, I'M NOT

SURE.

Pat: JUST GUESS.

WHAT WOULD CONGRESS DO, IN

YOUR WILDEST NIGHTMARE?

Terry: I DON'T KNOW.

Pat: WELL, I'LL SAVE

YOU THE AGONY.

THEY APPROPRIATED $3 BILLION

TO BUILD A DAM.

A DAM, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS

CRISIS -- CUE EXCUSE ME, $

$2.93 BILLION TO BUILD A

DAM.

YOU'RE TAKING AWAY MY

PUNCHLINE, MR. DIRECTOR.

KEEP YOUR HAND OFF THE

SWITCH.

YOU WOULD THINK IT WOULD GO

INTO NEVADA, WOULDN'T YOU?

WHO IS THE SENATOR FROM

KENTUCKY.

Terry: KENTUCKY.

OH, MY GOODNESS.

RAND --

Pat: NO.

RAND PAUL DIDN'T DO IT.

THE GUY IS IN CHARGE OF

THINGS.

THE SENATE MINORITY LEADER.

MITCHELL McCONNELL.

SO THE GUYS ARE SITTING IN

THE OFFICE SAYING WE DIDN'T

HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

IT.

IS IT ANY WONDER THE TEA

PARTY GETS DISGUSTED.

HERE WE ARE IN A DEBT

CRISIS, AND PEOPLE ARE

SAYING, DON'T SPEND MONEY.

$3BILLION FOR A DAM.

Terry: IT IS

ASTONISHING IT WOULD EVEN BE

ATTEMPTED.

Pat: NOT ONLY

ATTEMPTED, BUT PUT THROUGH

AND PASSED BECAUSE IT

SLIPPED THROUGH WHERE THERE

WAS NO DISCUSSION.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

I THINK I LIKE MITCH A LOT,

AND HE IS A GREAT GUY, BUT

HIS OFFICE SAID, WE DIDN'T

HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

IT.

COME OFF IT.

IT IS IN KENTUCKY.

WHAT OTHER SENATOR WAS

NEGOTIATING AND MAKING THAT

DEAL.

HE SAID, I'M GOING TO GIVE

YOU A LITTLE PIECE, THIS IS

MY PIECE, AND THAT'S THE WAY

THEY DO IT, BACK AND FORTH.

Terry: THIS IS WHY

PEOPLE ARE SO DISGUSTED.

Pat: OF COURSE THEIR

DISGUSTED.

THIS SAT THERE AND NOBODY

DISCUSSED IT.

$2.9BILLION FOR A DAM.

Terry: HERE IS THE GOOD

NEWS, WE MIGHT BE GOING

THROUGH ALL OF THIS AGAIN

DOWN THE ROAD, RIGHT?

Pat: I WONDER WHAT

HARRY REID GOT FOR NEVADA.

HE MUST HAVE GOTTEN

SOMETHING IN THERE.

THIS IS THE WAY IT WORKS.

IS THERE ANY WONDER THE TEA

PARTY IS DISGUSTED.

HERE WE HAVE A DEBT CRISIS,

$217 TRILLION, AND WE'RE SO

DESPERATE TO HAVE A FIX ON

THIS THING, AND TO GET OUR

SPENDING DOWN, AND THE

REPUBLICANS ARE SUPPOSED TO

BE THE PARTY OF FISCAL

SANITY AND POVERTY.

BUT IN THE MIDST OF THIS

CRISIS, THEY PUT IN MONEY

FOR A DAM -- MAYBE A NICE

DAM.

Terry: ONE COULD ONLY

HOPE.

Pat: MAYBE IT WILL HAVE

A LAKE BEHIND IT, AND PEOPLE

COULD RIDE MOTOR BOATS AND

HAVE HOUSE BOATS.

Terry: WELL, THAT BILL

ONLY ENDS THE GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN FOR A FEW MONTHS,

IF YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT.

ANOTHER POLITICAL STRUGGLE

IN WASHINGTON COULD BE

AROUND THE CORNER.

WE HAVE TWO REPORTS FROM CBN

NEWS, STARTING WITH CHARLENE

ISRAEL.

Reporter: GOVERNMENT

WORKERS ARE BACK ON THE JOB

TODAY.

A BIPARTISAN BILL FROM THE

SENATE PASSED BOTH HOUSES,

WITH SPEAKER BOEHNER BACKING

DOWN TO ALLOW A VOTE.

WE FOUGHT THE GOOD

FIGHT.

WE JUST DIDN'T WIN.

Reporter: JUST AFTER

MIDNIGHT, PRESIDENT OBAMA

SIGNED THE BILL INTO LAW,

ENDING THE GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN, AND AVERTING A

U.S. DEFAULT.

President Obama: WE CAN

BEGIN TO LIFT THIS CLOUD OF

UNCERTAINTY FROM OUR

BUSINESSES AND FROM THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Reporter: THE AGREEMENT

GIVES PRESIDENT OBAMA NEARLY

EVERYTHING HE ASKED FOR.

IT IS A CLEAN FUNDING BILL

THAT REOPENS THE GOVERNMENT

UNTIL JANUARY 15th,

INCREASES THE DEBT LIMIT

UNTIL EARLY FEBRUARY, AND

PRESERVES OBAMACARE.

BUT TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS

AREN'T HAPPY.

AND THEY'RE VOWING TO

CONTINUE FIGHTING FOR CHANGE

IN WASHINGTON.

WE SAW THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES TAKE A

COURAGEOUS STAND, LISTENING

TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THAT WAS A REMARKABLE

VICTORY, TO SEE THE HOUSE

ENGAGE IN A PROFILE

ENCOURAGE.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

ARE LIKELY TO GET ANOTHER

GO.

CBN NEWS FINANCIAL EDITOR

DRAW PARKHILL SAYS THE

SHORT-TERM CONGRESSIONAL

DEAL MEANS THE NATION WILL

REVISIT THE BUDGET MESS

AGAIN EARLY NEXT YEAR.

IT MEANS WE GO THROUGH,

ONCE AGAIN, WHAT WE'VE BEEN

GOING THROUGH FOR THE LAST

FEW WEEKS.

THEY'RE JUST KICKING THE CAN

DOWN THE ROAD AND SOLVING

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Reporter: CBN'S DAVID

BRODY HAS MORE FROM

WASHINGTON ON THE REACTION

FROM REPUBLICAN

CONSERVATIVES AND TEA PARTY

MEMBERS.

UP HERE ON CAPITOL HILL,

THERE ARE LOOKS OF ANGUISH,

SORROW, AND FRUSTRATION FROM

ANY SORT OF TEA PARTY

CONGRESSMAN, CONGRESSWOMAN,

SENATOR, YOU NAME IT.

AND THEY ARE FRUSTRATED,

AND, QUITE FRANKLY, PRETTY

SAD ABOUT THE OUTCOME.

MICHELE BACHMANN SAYS WE MAY

HAVE LOST THE BATTLE, BUT

WE'RE GOING TO WIN THE WAR.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL LEAD

US INTO BANKRUPTCY

ECONOMICALLY, AND ALSO A

BANKRUPTCY OF OUR LIBERTY.

SO I THINK THE REASONABLE

POSITION ALL ALONG HAS BEEN

THE VERY THOUGHTFUL REASONED

REASONE REASONED REPUBLIC

AN -- WE ARE HURTLING

TOWARDS BANKRUPTCY, BUT IT

ISN'T BECAUSE WE DIDN'T

TRY.

SHE SAYS SHE DIDN'T BLAME

SPEAKER BOEHNER, HE WAS IN A

VERY TOUGH SPOT.

BUT, ULTIMATELY, AT THE END

OF THE DAY, THEY DID NOT GET

ANYTHING THEY WANTED.

THERE IS ONE YEAR BETWEEN

NOW AND THE MID-TERM

ELECTIONS IN 2014.

THEY ARE HOPING, THINKING,

THAT OBAMACARE WILL START TO

FAIL MISERABLY, AND THERE

WILL BE A DIFFERENT OUTCOME

IN THE MID-TERMS IN 2014.

DAVID BRODY, ON CAPITOL

HILL.

Pat: I UNDERSTAND THAT

SPEAKER BOEHNER GOT A

STANDING OVATION, BECAUSE

THEY ARE BEHIND HIM.

BUT, OOH, WHAT A MESS.

Terry: WHAT A MESS.

Pat: SHE JUST OPENED

THEY JUST OPENED OBAMACARE,

AND, MR. DIRECTOR, DON'T

TAKE AWAY MY LINE.

GUESS WHAT STATE THERE WAS A

GREAT MOVE IN OBAMACARE.

Terry: WHAT DO YOU

MEAN?

Pat: I MEAN SOMEBODY

FINALLY SIGNED UP.

Terry: A STATE SIGNED

UP?

Pat: NO.

A PERSON.

ONE PERSON IN THE STATE OF

DELAWARE.

ONE PERSON SIGNED UP FOR

OBAMACARE.

THAT'S THE ONLY ONE THEY'VE

HAD IN THE ENTIRE STATE.

AND THEY JUST DID IT.

ONE PERSON.

Terry: IN THE WHOLE

PROCESS?

Pat: THE WHOLE STATE.

THE WHOLE PROCESS.

ALL OF THE PUBLICITY.

ONLY ONE PERSON, AND THEY

NEED MILLIONS OF THEM.

SO OBAMACARE JUST GOT

STARTED AT THE BEGINNING OF

THIS MONTH, AND IT IS

ALREADY RUNNING INTO MAJOR

PROBLEMS.

AS I JUST POINTED OUT TO

YOU, THAT ONE IN DELAWARE IS

A MAJOR PROBLEM.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE KICKOFF TO OBAMACARE HAS

BEEN PLAGUED WITH

DIFFICULTIES.

THE WEBSITE FOR THE HEALTH

EXCHANGES HAS BEEN EXTREMELY

SLOW AND LOADED WITH

TECHNICAL GLITCHES.

VERY FEW PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

ABLE TO SIGN UP.

IN THE STATE OF DELAWARE,

ONLY ONE PERSON HAS BEEN

ABLE TO JOIN OBAMACARE AFTER

TWO WEEKS.

DESPITE ALL OF THE TECHNICAL

PROBLEMS, THE SITES WERE

EXPENSIVE TO SET UP.

THEY COST $634 MILLION TO

CREATE.

THE ORIGINAL ESTIMATE FOR

THE COST WAS $94 MILLION.

NEARLY 30 MILLION PEOPLE

LIVE IN SLAVERY AROUND THE

WORLD.

MANY OF THEM ARE TRAPPED IN

HUMAN SEX TRAFFICKING, ALONG

WITH FORCED LABOR AND OTHER

DEPLORABLE ACTIVITIES.

INDIA HAS THE MOST SLAVES,

WITH AN ESTIMATED 14 MILLION

PEOPLE, AND CHINA HAS NEARLY

THREE MILLION, AND PAKISTAN,

TWO MILLION.

THE FINDINGS COME FROM A

MAJOR STUDY CALLED "THE

GLOBAL SLAVERY INDEX," FROM

THE WALK FREE ASSOCIATION IN

AUSTRALIA.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO THINK

THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE IN

SLAVERY TODAY THAN AT ANY

TIME IN HISTORY.

Pat: THIS BREAKS MY

HEART.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS

BREAKS MY HEART.

THINK IF IT IS YOUR DAUGHTER

OR YOUR SON, AND THEY ARE 10

OR 11 YEARS OLD.

THEY WANT TO HAVE A FUTURE,

THEY WANT TO HAVE HOPE, AN

OPPORTUNITY TO GROW UP AND

MAYBE GET MARRIED AND HAVE A

FAMILY AND HAVE A JOB AND A

HOUSE TO LIVE IN AND BUILD A

FUTURE.

ALL OF THAT IS TAKEN AWAY

FROM THEM.

AND ALL THEY'VE GOT IS

UNREMITTING LABOR.

MAE WORK FROM MORNING UNTIL

NIGHT.

IF THEY DON'T PERFORM

THEY'RE BEATEN.

THEY'RE KEPT IN SWALOR

CONDITIONS.

AS FAR AS THE WOMEN, THE SEX

TRAFFICKED WOMEN, THEY HAVE

TO PERFORM 20, 10, 15, SEX

ACTS A NIGHT.

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT AFTER

NIGHT.

AND IF THEY DON'T PERFORM,

THEY'RE BEATEN, STARVED,

CHAINED.

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING

ABOUT THIS, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

WE HAVE TO LIFT THE BONDS OF

OPPRESSION.

READ ISAIAH 58.

IT'S A MANDATE WE ALL HAVE.

JOHN?

Reporter: MORE TALKS ON

IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM WILL

TAKE PLACE IN A COUPLE OF

WEEKS.

BUT ISRAEL IS WARNING THE

WORLD NOT TO BACK DOWN FROM

ITS HARDLINE STANCE AGAINST

IRAN.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IS URGING

THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITIES TO KEEP PRESSING

AHEAD WITH SANCTIONS, AND TO

NOT STOP SHORT OF ITS GOAL.

I THINK THERE IS A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO APPLY

CONTINUOUS PRESSURE, AND

EVEN GREATER PRESSURE, TO

HAVE IRAN DISMANTEL ITS

NUCLEAR WEAPONS

CAPABILITIES.

I THINK IT WOULD BE A GRAVE

MISTAKE TO EASE THE

SANCTIONS WITHOUT GETTING A

FULL DISMANTLING OF IRAN'S

NUCLEAR CAPABILITY.

I CALL ON THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY TO DO EXACTLY

THAT.

Reporter: NETANYAHU

ALSO WARNED THIS WEEKEND IN

A SPEECH THAT ISRAEL

RESERVES THE RIGHT TO LAUNCH

A REEMTIF PREEMPTIVE

STRIKE, IF NECESSARY.

THE FINAL FLIGHTS OF AN

OPERATION BRINGING JEWISH

PEOPLE TO ISRAEL RECENTLY

LANDED THERE.

Reporter: IT IS ONE OF

THE WORLD'S OLDEST JEWISH

COMMUNITIES, REACHING BACK

TO KI KING SOLOMON AND THE

QUEEN OF SHEBA.

TODAY WE'RE WITNESSING

HISTORY TAKING PLACE.

THE HISTORIC RETURN OF THE

LAST REMAINING JEWISH

ETHIOPIANS INTO OUR JEWISH

HOMELAND.

Reporter: 400 JEWISH

IMMIGRANTS FROM ETHIOPIA

ARRIVED IN ISRAEL, COURTESY

OF OPTION "DOVE'S WINGS."

IT IS THE FINAL MASS

IMMIGRATIONS FROM THAT

COUNTRY OVER THE LAST THREE

DECADES.

IT IS REALLY LIKE CLOSING

A CIRCLE.

30 YEARS OF OPERATION AFTER

OPERATION, OF WONDERFUL

IMMIGRATION THAT BRING

ETHIOPIANS TO ISRAEL.

Reporter: PARINA IS THE

FIRST ETHIOPIAN-BORN WOMAN

TO COME TO ISRAEL.

SHE CAME IN 1991.

I CAME IN THAT OPERATION

AT AGE THREE.

AND THIS TIME I RETURN TO

ETHIOPIA AS A MEMBER.

I'M VERY PROUD OF THIS.

Reporter: SINCE 1948,

THE JEWISH AGENCY

RESPONSIBLE FOR IMMIGRATION

HELPED MORE THAN 90,000

ETHIOPIANS IMMIGRATE TO

ISRAEL.

KAREN HIASSOD RAISED MUCH OF

THE FUNDS.

ONE OF THE BASIC MISSIONS

OF US AS JEWS AND THE STATE

OF ISRAEL IS TO GATHER THE

JEWISH EXILES HERE IN

ETHIOPIA.

Reporter: THEY KEPT

THEIR JEWISH RELIGION AND

TRADITION FOR GENERATIONS.

OTHER ETHIOPIAN JEWS, KNOWN

AS FALASH MORA ADOPTED

CHRISTIAN PRACTICE OR

ASSIMILATED INTO SOCIETY.

WHEN THEY WANTED TO COME,

ISRAEL HAD TO DETERMINE IF

THEY WERE ELIGIBLE, AND

THERE IS STILL A DEBATE.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY

ARE.

THEY'RE BROTHERS.

THEY'RE FAMILY.

Reporter: FOR THE LAST

THREE YEARS,

THE JEWISH

AGENCY RAN A COMMUNITY

CENTER IN GONDAR, ETHIOPIA.

IT PROVIDED EDUCATION,

LANGUAGE, AND JUDAISM

INSTRUCTION TO PREPARE THE

RETURNEES FOR THEIR

HOMECOMING.

THEY HAVE A RICH

CULTURE.

BUT THEY GREW UP IN

VILLAGES, REMOVED FROM

20th CENTURY WESTERN

CIVILIZATION AS WE KNOW IT.

Reporter: THIS RABBI

SAYS IT IS LIKE A FAMILY

REUNION.

WE HAVE JEWS THAT HAVE

BEEN SEPARATED FROM EACH

OTHER FOR 2,000 YEARS.

IMAGINE A FAMILY REUNION

AFTER A 2,000-YEAR SUMMER

CAMP.

WE COME BACK WITH ALL OF THE

DIFFERENT CULTURES AND

PERSPECTIVES AND VALUES.

AND WE'RE IN THIS LITTLE

LAND SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES

WHO WANT TO WIPE US OUT.

Reporter: THE JEWISH

AGENCY WILL STILL HELP THOSE

ELIGIBLE TO IMMIGRATE, AND

ABROMOWITZ SAYS THERE IS

PLENTY OF WORK AROUND THE

WORK.

THERE IS A LOT MORE WORK

TO DO.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, TEL

AVIV, ISRAEL.

FOODS HIGH IN SUGAR AND

FAT COULD BE AS ADDICTIVE TO

SOME PEOPLE AS COCAINE IS TO

A DRUG ADDICT.

THAT'S THE FINDING FROM A

STUDY AT CONNECTICUT

COLLEGE.

THE STUDY FOUND THAT FOODS

WITH HIGH SUGAR AND HIGH FAT

ACTIVATED PLEASURE CENTERS

IN THE BRAIN, EVEN MORE THAN

THE EVIL LEN EQUIVALENCE OF

COCAINE OR MORPHINE.

IT COULD INDICATE THAT SOME

PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY

ADDICTED TO JUNK FOOD.

THIS STUDY REALLY LOOKS AT

THE EFFECTS OF SUGAR ON

PEOPLE.

Pat: I HOPE THE FOOD

AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION

WOULDN'T GET AFTER OREOS.

THAT WOULD BE TERRIBLE IF

YOU CRIMINALIZE

OREO-EATING.

Terry: AND YOU WERE

WORRIED ABOUT OVERCROWDING.

Pat: YOU GET BUSTED FOR

HAVING A CASE OFORY YO OF

OREOS IN THE PANTRY.

BUT WHAT THEY SAID IS TRUE,

SUGAR IS ADDICTIVE.

I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS AS

SERIOUS AS COCAINE, BUT IT

IS PRETTY SERIOUS.

I AM NO LONGER ADDICTED.

I JUST DON'T HAVE CRAVINGS.

Terry: I DOUBT WE WOULD

FIND A PACKAGE OF OREOS AT

YOUR HOUSE.

Pat: YOU WILL NOT FIND

ONE.

IF YOU DID, IT WILL BE THERE

STALE, HAVING RATS EAT IT --

WE DON'T HAVE RATS.

MICE -- WE DON'T HAVE MICE.

MAYBE ANTS.

Terry: FOR YEARS,

PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN

ANTIBIOTICS TO FIGHT

DISEASES, AND NOW THE

DISEASES ARE FIGHTING BACK.

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IS

ONE OF THE MOST SERIOUS

HEALTH THREATS WE FACE

TODAY.

Terry: SO FIND OUT HOW

YOU CAN PROTECT YOURSELF.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: YEARS AGO PEOPLE

WERE FRIGHTENED BY VENEREAL

DISEASES, THEY CALLED THEM

IN THOSE DAYS.

AND NOW THEY'RE S.T.D.s,

THAT WERE IMPERVIOUS TO THE

LATEST DRUGS, AND THEY WOULD

RAVISH THE BODY AND DESTROY

PEOPLE.

IMAGINE YOU GOT AN

INFECTION.

YOU MAY HAVE GOTTEN IT JUST

IN A HOSPITAL.

BUT EVEN THE MOST POWERFUL

DRUGS CAN'T KILL IT.

THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE

CONTROL IS WARNING THAT

COULD HAPPEN BECAUSE OF

BACTERIA THAT NOW CAN RESIST

ANTIBIOTICS.

AND HOW DO THOSE BACTERIA

GET THAT WAY?

LORI JOHNSON IS GOING TO

TELL US.

Reporter: FOR 70 YEARS

WE'VE RELIED MORE ON MORE ON

ANTIBIOTICS TO FIGHT

INFECTIONS.

TO THE POINT WHERE SOME

BACTERIA HAVE GOTTEN SO

STRONG, DRUGS CAN NO LONGER

KILL THEM.

AN ALARMING C.D.C. REPORT

REVEALS THESE BACTERIA

INFECT AROUND TWO MILLION

AMERICANS EACH YEAR AND KILL

23,000 OF THEM.

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IS

ONE OF THE MOST SERIOUS

HEALTH THREATS WE FACE

TODAY.

WE RISK ENTERING A

POST-ANTIBIOTIC ERA WHERE

EVEN SIMPLE INFECTIONS CAN

BE DEADLY.

Reporter: AT THE TOP OF

THE LIST, C.diff, WHICH

TARGETS THE INTESTINAL TRACT

AND KILLS 14,000 PEOPLE A

YEAR.

THAT IS FOLLOWED BY DRUG

DRUG-RESISTANT GONORRHEA, AN

INFECTION MAKING UP ABOUT A

THIRD OF THE CASES OF THIS

SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED

DISEASE.

AND C.R.E., A RESPIRATORY

BACTERIA INFECTING 9,000

HOSPITAL PATIENTS A YEAR,

KILLING HALF OF THEM.

I CALLED C.R.E. A

NIGHTMARE BACTERIA.

IT CAN RESIST ALL

ANTIBIOTICS, AND KILL A HIGH

PROPORTION OF PEOPLE IT

INFECTS, AND SPREAD FROM

PERSON TO PERSON AND

BACTERIA TO BACTERIA

READILY.

Reporter: THE C.D.C.

BLAMES THIS RESISTANCE ON

THE OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS,

SAYING HALF OF THE

PRESCRIPTIONS GIVEN BY

DOCTORS AREN'T EVEN

NECESSARY.

DR. NANCY CARDORI AGREES.

SHE POINTS OUT THAT

ANTIBIOTICS KILL ONLY

INFECTIONS THAT ARE

BACTERIAL, NOT VIRAL.

BUT MOST OF THE TIME WHEN

PEOPLE ARE SICK, THEY HAVE A

VIRAL INFECTION AND

THEREFORE DON'T NEED AN

ANTIBIOTIC.

THE PROBLEM IS THERE IS NO

WAY TO INSTANTLY KNOW

WHETHER AN INFECTION IS

VIRAL OR BACTERIAL.

SO DOCTORS TEND TO GIVE ALL

OF THEIR SICK PATIENTS

ANTIBIOTICS TO HELP THE FEW

PATIENTS WHO ACTUALLY NEED

THEM.

THERE IS ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT PHYSICIANS WORRY

ABOUT, IF I DIDN'T GIVE THEM

ANTIBIOTICS, AND THEY WENT

HOME AND THEY ARE REALLY

SICK AND SOMETHING BAD

HAPPENS.

Reporter: ANTIBIOTICS

AREN'T JUST OVERUSED IN

HUMANS, BUT THEY ARE

UNNECESSARILY GIVEN TO

ANIMALS RAISED FOR FOOD.

ANIMALS RECEIVE 80% OF

ANTIBIOTICS, AND MUCH OF

THAT GOES INTO THEIR FOOD.

IT IS BEING FOUND IF YOU

GIVE THEM SOME ANTIBIOTICS

IN THEIR FEED, WHICH THEY

DON'T NEED FOR INFECTION, IT

MAKES THEM BIGGER.

QUICKER, SO THEY CAN BE SOLD

TO THE MARKET QUICKER.

IT IS MORE OFTEN AN ECONOMIC

ISSUE THAN ANIMAL HEALTH

ISSUE.

Reporter: BUT IT

BECOMES A HEALTH ISSUE FOR

HUMANS WHEN ANTIBIOTIC

ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT ANIMALS

GET FED TO HUMANS.

ANTIBIOTIC OVERUSE IS ONLY

PART OF THE PROBLEM.

TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, DRUG

COMPANIES AREN'T DEVELOPING

MANY NEW A.BOTT ANTIBIOTICS

TO REPLACE THE OLD ONES THAT

AREN'T WORKING ANYMORE.

DRUG COMPANIES NEED TO MAKE

A PROFIT, AND THESE DAYS

THERE IS NOT MUCH MONEY IN

ANTIBIOTICS.

AS A RESULT, ONLY TWO NEW

ANTIBIOTICS HAVE BEEN

DEVELOPED IN THE LAST FIVE

YEARS.

SO WHILE USING ANTIBIOTICS

LESS AND DEVELOPING NEW ONES

HELPED SLOW DOWN THE SPREAD

OF DRUG-RESISTANT

INFECTIONS, WE CAN ALSO

BETTER PROTECT OURSELVES

FROM GETTING THEM.

WASHING HANDS, AVOIDING

PEOPLE WITH INFECTIONS, AND

GETTING A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP

GO A LONG WAY.

HOSPITALS ALSO NEED TO

REDUCE INFECTION.

CHECK WITH YOUR STATE HEALTH

DEPARTMENT TO SEE WHICH

HOSPITALS HAVE THE LOWEST

INFECTION RATE.

DR. GENE BURKE HEADS ONE OF

VIRGINIA'S TOP HEALTH CARE

SYSTEMS.

HE SAYS YOU, THE PATIENT,

CAN ALSO HELP REDUCE YOUR

CHANCE OF INFECTION.

AND EVERY PATIENT SHOULD

FEEL TOTALLY EMPOWERED TO

SAY TO EVERYBODY WHO WALKS

IN THE ROOM, HAVE YOU WASHED

YOUR HANDS?

WOULD YOU MIND DOING IT

NOW?

Reporter: MANY HOSPITAL

INFECTIONS STRIKE AT CONTACT

POINTS WHERE DEVICES GO INTO

YOUR BODY.

SO THE SOONER THEY'RE OUT,

THE BETTER.

TALK TO YOUR CARE TEAM

AND BASICALLY TRY TO HELP

THEM KNOW THAT YOU EXPECT TO

HAVE THE FEWEST NUMBER OF

THINGS PUT INTO YOUR THAT IS

NECESSARY.

AND THAT YOU WOULD LIKE

THEM, EVERY SINGLE DAY -- IF

YOU HAVE A CATHETER OR AN

I.V. IN, TO ANSWER THE

QUESTION, IS IT STILL

NECESSARY TODAY?

EVERY SINGLE DAY, ASK AND

ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

Reporter: WHILE

ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT

BACTERIAL INFECTIONING IS A

HEALTH PROBLEM, THE TREND

CAN BE REVERSED.

FIRST, WE HAVE TO PREVENT

INFECTIONS AND THE SPREAD OF

DRUG-RESISTANT BACTERIA.

SECOND, USE ANTIBIOTICS MUCH

MORE RESPONSIBLY.

THIRD, CRACK RESISTANT

PATTERNS.

AND FOURTH, DEVELOP NEW

DRUGS.

Reporter: LORI JOHNSON,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS SCARY.

DO YOU WASH YOUR HANDS

OFTEN?

Terry: I DO.

ESPECIALLY NOW BECAUSE WE

HAVE BABIES IN THE HOUSE.

Pat: BABIES ARE

BREEDERS OF THAT STUFF,

AREN'T THEY?

Terry: I THINK WE MIGHT

BE THE ONES WHO BREED IT.

Pat: WHEN YOU HAVE

CHILDREN IN SCHOOL, THEY

COME HOME AND ARE CONSTANTLY

GETTING SICK.

Terry: THINK ABOUT

THINGS WE DO EVERY DAY, LIKE

GOING TO THE GROCERY STORE

AND PUTTING OUR HANDS ON

CARTS -- OR ANY STORE FOR

THAT MATTER.

EVERYTHING IS JUST FRAUGHT

WITH GERMS.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO?

Pat: I THINK

HANDWASHING -- YOU REMEMBER

THE HORROR STORIES THAT CAME

OUT OF THE 19th CENTURY

ABOUT WOMEN WHO WERE GETTING

ALL KINDS OF PELVIC

INFECTIONS BECAUSE DOCTORS

WOULD, YOU KNOW, OPERATE ON

SOMEBODY WITH A SERIOUS

CONDITION, OR MAYBE HANDLE A

DEAD BODY, AND THEN THEY

WOULD GO DELIVER A BABY, AND

THEY WOULDN'T WASH THEIR

HANDS.

THERE WAS A GUY NAMED LESTER

WHO BEGAN TO TALK ABOUT

THIS.

IT WAS RESISTED BY THE

MEDICAL PROFESSION.

NOW I'M GRATEFUL TO MANY

HOSPITALS THAT HAVE A LITTLE

DISPENSER OF ANTIBIOTIC

CREAM IN THE HOSPITAL.

WHEN THEY LEAVE THE ROOM,

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO PUT A

SQUIRT ON IT AND WIPE THEIR

HANDS.

Terry: THAT AND ALMOST

EVERYWHERE I'VE GONE,

DOCTORS' OFFICES AND

DENTISTS' OFFICES, THEY USE

GLOVES.

Pat: THEY FINALLY HAVE

WOKE UP.

BUT LOTS OF PEOPLE

SUFFERED.

YOU GO OUT AND SHAKE

HANDS -- AND WHAT DID THAT

GUY DO WITH THAT HAND BEFORE

HE SHOOK YOUR HAND.

Terry: JUST WAVE TO

YOUR FRIEND.

Pat: HEY, CHARLIE, IT

IS GOOD TO SEE YOU.

PLEASE COME AGAIN.

HANDWASHING.

OR GET SOME OF THAT

ANTIBIOTIC LOTION.

Terry: THEY HAVE SO

MUCH OF THAT.

I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE

CARRY THAT AROUND.

Pat: BUT IF YOU'RE OUT

SHAKING HANDS WITH PEOPLE,

YOU CAN BE ASSURED ONE OR

MORE HAS SOME KIND OF FLU

VIRUS, AND YOU CAN GET RID

OF IT BY HANDWASHING, WHICH

IS SO SIMPLE.

Terry: IT MAKES

POLITICIANS' JOBS MORE

DIFFICULT.

COMING UP, WE'RE GOING TO

BRING IT ON WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

LANE SAYS, "PEOPLE HAVE SEEN

STRANGE THINGS OVER THE

YEARS.

ARE SIGHTINGS LIKE BIG FOOT

AND U.F.O.s DEMONIC.

ARE THEY PART OF THE STRANGE

THINGS THAT ACCOMPANY THE

END TIME?"

WE'RE GOING TO WEIGH IN ON

THAT AND MORE WHEN WE COME

BACK.

*

Terry: WELL, EARLIER,

WE SAW A STORY ABOUT HOW

SOME DRUGS ARE BECOMING

INEFFECTIVE AT FIGHTING

DISEASE.

FOR THE WOMAN IN OUR NEXT

STORY, THE PILLS SHE GOT DID

NOTHING TO EASE HER PAIN.

HERE IS HOW SHE FOUND THE

TREATMENT SHE NEEDED.

Reporter:

ARID IS A

VERY ACTIVE WOMAN.

AFTER MANY YEARS OF PAIN

AND

SUFFERING, SHE IS HAPPY TO

BE ALIVE.

WHEN I LOST MY HUSBAND

AND CHILDREN, I WAS LEFT ALL

ALONE.

I BECAME VERY UNHAPPY.

AND I HAD NOTHING TO DO.

Reporter: AFTER HER

HUSBAND AND CHILDREN ALL

DIED FROM UNDIAGNOSED

DISEASES, ARID'S CENTER

FIELD LAARID'S

SISTER-IN-LAW TOOK HER

IN.

SHE WORKED ON FARMS TO EARN

MONEY.

BUT ONE DAY WHILE SHE WAS

WORKING, SHE FELT A TERRIBLE

PAIN.

ARID BOUGHT SOME PAIN

MEDICATION BY THE ROADSIDE,

BUT IT DIDN'T HELP.

THE PAIN BECAME SO INTENSE,

SHE COULDN'T DO ANYTHING.

I GOT VERY WORRIED.

I WAS AFRAID I MIGHT END UP

JUST LIKE MY LATE HUSBAND

AND CHILDREN.

I THOUGHT ABOUT THEM EVERY

DAY.

AND THAT MADE ME VERY SICK.

Reporter: ARID HAD

NEVER BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD TO

SEE A DOCTOR.

SO WHEN THE TOWN CRYER

ANNOUNCED A CBN MEDICAL TEAM

WAS COMING TO THEIR VILLAGE

FOR A FREE CLINIC, SHE KNEW

SHE HAD TO GO.

TESTS REVEALED HE HAD HIGH

BLOOD PRESSURE AND

DIABETES.

SHE WAS GIVEN THE RIGHT

MEDICATION, AND TOLD SHE

NEEDED TO DO SOMETHING LESS

STRENUOUS THAN FARM WORK.

WE KNEW SHE NEEDED TO EARN A

LIVING, SO WE SURPRISED HER

WITH A BUSINESS OF HER OWN,

A SMALL GROCERY STORE.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

TO GOD FOR BRINGING CBN MY

WAY.

MY LIFE IS SO MUCH BETTER

NOW.

I'M VERY HAPPY.

FROM MY HEART, I WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS

YOU.

Terry: I LOVE ARID.

I LOVE HER THANKFULNESS.

I LOVE THE FACT THAT SHE

HUNG ON THROUGH DIFFICULT

TIMES.

HER HUSBAND DIED.

HER CHILDREN DIED.

SHE HAD NO ONE TO HELP HER.

AND THEN CBN PARTNERS, YOU

ARE THE ONES WHO MADE A

DIFFERENCE.

WE ARE TAKING MEDICAL

MISSIONS LIKE THIS INTO SOME

OF THE MOST REMOTE AREAS,

PLACES WHERE THEY HAVE A

TOWN CRYER THAT ANNOUNCES

THE MEDICAL CLINIC IS

COMING.

THIS WOMAN WAS NOT ONLY

GIVEN THE HELP SHE NEEDED

MEDICALLY, BUT SHE WAS GIVEN

AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A

LIVING FOR HERSELF, TO

SURVIVE WELL.

AND SHE IS PRAISING GOD AND

THANKING HIM THAT YOU WERE

THERE IN THE MIDST OF HER

NEED.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO

JOIN?

WELL, IT IS A COMMITMENT OF

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, THAT'S

$20 A MONTH.

YOU WILL BE JOINING

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

OUT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

AND YOU DO IT BY CALLING

THAT TOLL-FREE NUMBER,

1-888-777-1999.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

BY THE WAY, WHEN YOU DO, WE

WANT TO SEND YOU PAT'S

LATEST TEACHING CALLED "HOW

SHALL WE NOW LIVE?"

HERE IS REVEREND RAY, FROM

VANCOUVER, WASH WORK, WHO

SAID, "HOW SHALL WE NOW LIVE

WAS SCRIPTURAL AND VERY

GREAT."

WE THINK IT WILL HELP YOU IN

YOUR WALK WITH THE LORD.

AS YOU RECEIVE ANSWERS TO

SOME OF THE MOST COMMON

QUESTIONS THAT PEOPLE ASK.

Pat: I THINK ALL OF US

NEED TO HAVE EMPATHY.

YOU HAVE TO FEEL THE

SUFFERING AROUND THE WORLD.

YOU GO TO SOME OF THE THESE

ORPHANAGES AND SOME OF THE

LEPER COLONIES -- I DON'T

KNOW WHAT ALL WE'VE HELPED

AROUND THE WORLD, BUT I'VE

BEEN IN HOSPITALS.

I REMEMBER ONE WHERE THE

RUSSIANS WERE BLASTING THE

AFGHANS, AND THESE PEOPLE

WERE SUFFERING.

AND I'VE BEEN TO

LATIN-AMERICA AND PEOPLE

HAVE BEEN SHOT IN WARFARE

AND THEY WERE LYING IN

HOSPITALS.

THE SUFFERING IS SO

INTENSE.

NO MEDICINE, NO DRUGS, NOT

EVEN AN ASPIRIN MANY TIMES

TO ALLEVIATE THE PAIN.

WE CAN HELP.

WE CAN'T DO IT ALL, BUT WE

CAN REACH OUT AND HELP.

AND IT IS SO EASY.

I MEAN, 65 CENTS A DAY IS

NOTHING.

CONSIDERING HOW MUCH GOOD WE

COULD ALL DO TOGETHER.

OKAY, WE'VE GOT QUESTIONS.

Terry: IT IS "BRING IT

ON" TIME.

LANE SAYS, "CAN YOU GIVE ME

SOME IN SIGHT ON U.F.O.s

AND BIG FOOT.

PEOPLE HAVE SEEN STRANGE

PHENOMENA, AND NOT JUST

CRAZY PEOPLE.

TEDDY ROOSEVELT SAID HE SAW

A U.F.O.

HAVE THESE THINGS DEMONIC?

ARE THEY PART OF THE STRANGE

THINGS THAT WILL ACCOMPANY

THE END TIME?"

Pat: I THINK GENERALLY,

WHETHER A BALLOON OR FLIGHTS

OF AIRPLANES OR REFLECTIONS

OFF OF CLOUD BANKS -- ALL

KINDS OF THINGS.

AS FAR AS BIG FOOT, THERE

MAY BE SOME APE-LIKE

CREATURES RUNNING AROUND IN

THE WOODS.

BIG APES.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE.

I'VE NEVER SEEN BIG FOOT.

BUT DON'T BUILD INTO THAT

ANYTHING MORE THAN YOU HAVE

TO.

MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT SEE

THIS ARE DELUSIONAL -- WELL,

THEY'RE NOT DELUSIONAL, BUT

THEIR EYES ARE BEING -- ARE

DECEIVING THEM.

Terry: ROBERT SAYS, "I

AM A CHRISTIAN, AND I

BELIEVE THAT GOD CREATED THE

WORLD.

I'VE HAD FRIENDS TRY TO

STUMP ME BY ASKING ABOUT

CANE'S WIFE AND WHERE SHE

CAME FROM.

I HEARD OTHER CHRISTIANS SAY

CANE'S WIFE WAS ALSO HIS

SISTER.

BUT HOW DO WE KNOW THAT GOD

DIDN'T JUST KEEP ON

CREATING?"

Pat: GOD MADE A COUPLE

AND HE GAVE THEM THE ABILITY

TO REPRODUCE.

THE PROHIBITION AGAINST

INCEST WAS IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, IN THE BOOK OF

LEVITICUS WAS VERY CLEAR

ABOUT INCEST.

I THINK THE PROBLEM ABOUT

INCEST PRIMARILY HAD TO DO

WITH THE GENETIC MAKEUP OF

PEOPLE.

AND FLAWS WOULD BE MAGNIFIED

IF PEOPLE OF THE SAME FAMILY

KEPT BREEDING TOGETHER.

YOU GET GENETIC

MALFORMATIONS.

BUT IT WAS AGAINST THE LAW

BECAUSE THE LAW CAME.

BUT EARLY THERE WAS NO LAW

THAT PROHIBITED THAT.

AND I DON'T THINK THERE IS

ANY QUESTION THAT CANE GOT

MARRIED TO HIS SISTER.

I JUST DON'T THINK THERE IS

ANY QUESTION ABOUT IT.

I DON'T THINK GOD KEPT ON

CREATING PEOPLE.

HE DIDN'T NEED TO.

I MEAN, THAT'S ALL I CAN

SAY.

Terry: THIS IS DEBRA

WHO SAYS, "SO I WAS WATCHING

THIS TELEVISION SHOW WHERE A

PASTOR IS WRANGLING SNAKES

DURING A SERVICE.

HE

SAYS THE BIBLE COMMANDS

HIM TO DO IT.

IS THIS TRUE?

IT SEEMS A LITTLE ODD."

Pat: THEY HAVE A SHOW

WITH SNAKE SALVATION.

I HAD ONE GUY IN A SERVICE

WHERE HE HANDLED THE

SERPENT, AND THEY WANTED TO

HAND HIM ONE OF THOSE RATTLE

SNAKES -- THIS MAY SHOCK

SOME OF YOU, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, BUT THOSE OF US

WHO HAVE STUDIED WHAT IS

CALLED TEXTUAL CRITICISM,

YOU TRY TO SAY WHAT IS THE

BEST TEXT TO TRANSLATE.

THERE ARE CERTAIN PRINCIPLES

WE FOLLOW, OR THE EXPERTS

FOLLOW AND PEOPLE LIKE ME

GET TAUGHT, WHAT YOU

TRANSLATE.

IN THE BOOK OF MARK, THE

BEST MANUSCRIPTS ARE

AVAILABLE.

STOP BEFORE YOU GET TO THAT

PART ABOUT SNAKES AND

DRINKING -- THAT ISN'T IN

THE BEST MANUSCRIPTS.

IT JUST ISN'T THERE.

SO IT'S AN ADD-ON, AND WE'VE

HAD A LOT OF PROBLEM BECAUSE

OF THAT ADD-ON.

IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU GO AND

HAVE A SERVICE AND HAVE A

BOX FULL OF RATTLE SNAKES,

EVEN IF IT WERE.

BUT THAT IS NOT IN THE BEST

MANUSCRIPTS THAT HAVE COME

TO US TO TRANSLATE.

OKAY.

Terry: NO SNAKES

TODAY.

THIS IS A VIEWER WHO

SAYS, "RECENTLY YOU SAID

THAT MEDIUMS ARE

COMMUNICATING WITH DEMONS.

BUT I WATCHED A TV SHOW THE

OTHER DAY, AND THE MEDIUM

CLAIMS SHE ONLY TALKS WITH,

QUOTE,"PERIOD WHO WALK IN

GOD'S WHITE LIGHT.

SHE SEEMS LIKE A VERY

POSITIVE CHRISTIAN WOMAN.

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON

THIS?"

Pat: ANYONE WHO SPEAKS

WITH SPIRITS AND THOSE WHO

MUTTER, THERE IS NO TRUTH IN

THEM.

I'M SORRY.

THIS WHITE LIFE STUFF IS

VERY APPEALING.

AND THAT LONG ISLAND MEDIUM

IS A WHOLE SHOW ABOUT HER.

VERY NICE LADY, VERY

ATTRACTIVE LADY.

AND VERY REASONABLE WHAT

THEY SAY, I'M TALKING TO

YOUR DEAD FATHER AND HE IS

SAYING I'M HAPPY WHERE I

AM.

LISTEN, THE DEAD DO NOT

COMMUNICATE WITH THE

LIVING.

THEY JUST DON'T.

THEY DON'T COME BACK AND

TELL US STUFF.

THEY DON'T GO AROUND

CLANKING CHAINS AND MOANING

AND GROANING.

THEY JUST DON'T.

BUT THERE ARE SPIRITS, AND

THERE ARE DEMONIC SPIRITS,

AND FAMILIAR SPIRITS THAT

DRESS UP LIKE AUNT SUSIE,

AND THEY'LL TELL YOU THINGS

AND THEY MAY BE VERY

CONVINCING, AND YOU MIGHT

SEE WHITE LIGHTS AND ALL

KINDS OF THINGS, BUT IT

ISN'T OF GOD.

THIS IS NOT OF GOD.

IT IS PROHIBITED IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, AND IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, WITCHES AND

MEDIUMS WERE BURNED TO

DEATH.

THAT'S WHY THE WITCH OF

ANDOR IS THE ONLY ONE I'M

FAMILIAR WITH WHO BROUGHT UP

A SPIRIT.

AND SHE WAS SCARED HALF TO

DEATH WHEN SHE SAW HIM

BECAUSE SHE REALIZED SHE WAS

TALKING TO THE KING, AND THE

KING WAS GOING TO KILL HER.

HE SAID, I'M NOT GOING TO

KILL YOU.

YOU'VE DONE WHAT I'VE ASKED

YOU, AND LET ME GET OUT OF

HERE.

THAT'S THE ONLY CASE I'M

AWARE OF.

BUT THE WITCHES IN THOSE

DAYS WERE BURNED TO DEATH,

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

NOT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR TODAY,

BUT WE DO THANK YOU FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS.

COMING UP, IT HAS BEEN SEVEN

YEARS SINCE A MAN WALKED

INTO AN AMISH SCHOOL HOUSE

AND SHOT 10 GIRLS.

MAUREEN REMEMBERS THAT DAY

VIVIDLY BECAUSE HER HUSBAND

WAS THE SHOOTER.

WE'RE GOING TO SHARE HER

STORY WHEN WE RETURN.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

MICHIGAN'S BAN ON GAY

MARRIAGE STAYS AT LEAST FOR

NOW.

U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE BERNARD

FRIEDMAN SAYS HE WON'T RULE

ON WHETHER TO OVERTURN THE

BAN.

INSTEAD HE IS SENDING THE

CASE TO TRIAL.

IT CENTERS AROUND A LESBIAN

COUPLE'S LAWSUIT,

CHALLENGING THE STATE'S BAN

ON ADOPTION BY UNMARRIED

COUPLES.

THE JUDGE SAYS THE

PLAINTIFFS ARE ENTITLED TO

THEIR DAY IN COURT, AFTER

THE SUPREME COURT'S DECISION

RECOGNIZING LEGALLY MARRIED

COUPLES.

GAY RIGHTS ACTIVISTS WERE

DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE IF THE

BAN HAD BEEN LIFTED,

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

WOULD HAVE

IMMEDIATELY BECOME LEGAL IN

THE

STATE.

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

SUPPORTERS RALLIED IN SPORT

OF KEEPING THE BAN.

THE ARMY HAS ISSUED A

CORRECTION AFTER A CHRISTIAN

GROUP WAS LABELLED AS A HATE

GROUP IN A RECENT ARMY

BRIEFING.

THE INCIDENT TOOK PLACE AT

CAMP SHELBY IN MISSISSIPPI.

THE AMERICAN FAMILY

ASSOCIATION WAS CLASSIFIED

AS A HATE GROUP, ALONG WITH

GROUPS LIKE THE K.K.K. AND

THE BLACK PANTHERS.

BUT THE CLARION LEDGER

REPORTS THAT THE ARMY

INVESTIGATED AND FOUND OUT

THAT THE SOLDIER CONDUCTING

THE BRIEFING HAD NOT DONE

THOROUGH RESEARCH.

THEY SAY THE AMERICAN FAMILY

ASSOCIATION SHOULD NOT BE

LABELLED A HATE GROUP.

AS CBN NEWS HAS REPORTED,

THIS ALL STARTED EARLIER

THIS YEAR WHEN THE LIBERAL

POVERTY LAW CENTER LABELLED

CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS AS

HATE GROUPS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry:

ON

OCTOBER 2nd, 2006, MAUREEN

MONVILLE GOT A PHONE CALL.

HER HUSBAND, CHARLIE, WAS ON

THE OTHER LINE AND HE SAID

HE WASN'T COMING HOME.

MAUREEN DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

GOING ON AND SHE BECAUSE

BLINDSIDED BY WHAT HAPPENED

NEXT.

Reporter: MAUREEN

MONVILLE MARRIED CHARLIE,

HER HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART.

BUT AFTER THREE KIDS AND

ALMOST 10 YEARS OF MARRIAGE,

EVERYTHING SHE KNEW ABOUT

HER LIFE WOULD CHANGE.

ON OCTOBER 2nd, 2006,

CHARLIE WALKED INTO AN AMISH

SCHOOL HOUSE IN THEIR HOME

TOWN AND SHOT 10 GIRLS,

KILLING FIVE OF THEM.

THE EVENT SHOCKED THE

NATION.

Terry: JOINING US NOW

FOR THE REST OF THE STORY IS

MAUREEN MONVILLE, THANKS FOR

JOINING US ON "THE 700

CLUB."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME.

Terry: THIS -- WHEN

SOMETHING DREADFUL LIKE THIS

HAPPENS, I ALWAYS THINK OF

THE FAMILY OF THE PERSON

WHO, FOR WHATEVER REASON,

MENTAL ILLNESS, JUST HAVING

INCREDIBLE ANGER -- THE

FAMILY IS LEFT TO CONTEND

WITH ALL OF THIS.

THIS HAD TO BE AN INCREDIBLE

SHOCK FOR YOU.

WILL YOU WALK US THROUGH

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU THAT

DAY?

SURE.

CHARLIE CALLED AND SAID HE

WASN'T COMING HOME.

AS I TRIED TO LISTEN TO HIM,

I WAS SO STUCK ON THAT FIRST

SENTENCE, TO KNOW MY WORLD

WAS SHATTERING AROUND ME.

AND EVERYTHING I THOUGHT TO

BE TRUE ABOUT OUR LIFE

TOGETHER WAS SUDDENLY OVER.

IN THAT VERY MOMENT, I FELT

THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IN

SUCH A TANGIBLE WAY, AND

THAT REALLY GAVE ME STRENGTH

TO CARRY ON.

Terry: WHEN HE CALLED,

DID YOU RECOGNIZE IN THE

TONE OF HIS VOICE, OR IN

WHAT HE SAID, THAT THERE WAS

SOMETHING REALLY SERIOUS

HAPPENING?

YOU KNOW, HE SAID HE

WASN'T COMING HOME.

I COULD TELL BY THE SOUND OF

HIS VOICE, HE MEANT I WOULD

NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN.

I COULDN'T HAVE IMAGINED

WHAT WAS GOING TO UNFOLD,

AND HE DIDN'T ALLUDE TO IT.

BUT IT'S JUST AMAZING HOW

LIFE CAN CHANGE IN AN

INSTANT.

YOU JUST CAN'T BE PLEA

PAIREPREPARED FOR THAT.

Terry: HE DID TELL YOU

THAT HE LEFT A NOTE.

WHAT DID HIS NOTE SAY?

HIS NOTE TALKED A LOT

ABOUT THE LOSS OF OUR FIRST

DAUGHTER, AND THE ANGER HE

FELT TOWARDS THE LORD OVER

THAT LOSS, AND THAT BEING

THE MOTIVATION OF WHAT HE

WAS GOING TO DO THAT DAY.

BUT, STILL, I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT WAS COMING.

Terry: DID YOU KNOW HE

HARBORED THIS ANGER TOWARD

GOD AND THIS DEPRESSION.

YOU HAD A DAUGHTER THAT DIED

IN VITRO?

SHE DIED AT 26 WEEKS IN

PREGNANCY.

I WOULD SEE HIM SUFFERING

FROM MILD DEPRESSION, BUT IT

WASN'T ANYTHING THAT WOULD

INTERFERE WITH HIS ABILITY

TO GO TO WORK OR ENGAGE WITH

OUR FAMILY.

HE THOUGHT HE COULD HANDLE

IT ON HIS OWN.

BUT IT WASN'T SOMETHING THAT

POINTED TO THIS TYPE OF

CIRCUMSTANCES.

Terry: WHEN DID YOU

FIRST LEARN WHAT HAD

HAPPENED?

I HEARD THE SIRENS GOING

OVERHEAD FROM THE POLICE AND

THE HELICOPTERS AND THINGS.

AND I KNEW -- MY STOMACH

FELT SICK.

AND I WAS SURE IT MUST ALL

BE COMBINED.

IT COULDN'T BE JUST A

COINCIDENCE.

AND AS THE POLICE PULLED IN

MY DRIVEWAY, I KNEW.

I KNEW THAT IT WAS ABOUT

CHARLIE.

Terry: WHAT WENT

THROUGH YOUR HEART AND MIND

WHEN THEY TOLD YOU WHAT HAD

HAPPENED?

YOU KNOW, IT WAS JUST

INCOMPREHENSIBLE TO ME THAT

THE MONEY I HAD BEEN MARRIED

TO FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS WAS

THE ONE THAT DID THAT.

EVERYTHING ABOUT WHO HE WAU

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN

THE MAN THAT WALKED INTO

THAT SCHOOL HOUSE.

BUT I FELT THE LORD, AND I

FELT HIM COMING IN STRENGTH

AND COMPASSION AND RAPPING

HIS ARMS AROUND ME IN A WAY

THAT WAS DEEPER THAN

ANYTHING I HAD EVER KNOWN

BEFORE, AND IT REALLY

CARRIED ME THROUGH.

Terry: HOW DID YOU

PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN DURING

THIS TIME?

BECAUSE THIS IS AN AWFUL

THING FOR YOUR FAMILY TO

ENDURE, AS WELL AS THOSE WHO

LOST THEIR CHILDREN.

AND THAT WAS REALLY JUST

SOUGHT OUT THROUGH THE

LORD.

AS COUNSELLORS LED US THAT

DAY.

KNOWING THAT MY KIDS NEEDED

TO KNOW THE TRUTH BEFORE

THEY WENT BACK TO SCHOOL,

BUT I HAD TO BE INTENTIONAL

ABOUT THE WAY I SHARED THE

DETAILS WITH THEM.

Terry: EVEN WITHIN

HOURS AFTER THE SHOOTING

TOOK PLACE, THE AMISH

COMMUNITY DID SOMETHING

UNBELIEVABLE.

ABSOLUTELY.

I WAS IN MY PARENTS' HOME,

AND LOOKING OUT THE KITCHEN

WINDOW, I SAW SOME AMISH MEN

COMING DOWN THE STREET.

I KNEW THEY WERE COMING TO

MY PARENTS' HOUSE.

I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT

TO DO?

MY DAD SAID HE WOULD GO OUT

AND TALK WITH THEM.

AND SO I SAW THE EXCHANGE IN

THE DRY EYE.

DRIVEWAY.

I SAW THEM PUT THEIR HANDS

ON HIS SHOULDER AND WRAPPED

THEIR ARMS AROUND HIM.

AS HE CAME INSIDE, HE TOLD

US THEY HAD FORGIVEN CHARLIE

AND THEY WERE EXTENDING

GRACE AND COMPASSION OVER

OUR FAMILY.

Terry: WOW.

I KNOW YOU STRUGGLED WITH

QUESTIONS ANYBODY WOULD HAVE

AFTER THIS.

SHOULD I HAVE SEEN SOMETHING

SOONER?

WAS THERE SOMETHING I COULD

HAVE DONE?

HOW DID YOU WORK THROUGH ALL

OF THAT?

JUST BY LAYING THAT AT

THE LORD'S FEET, KNOWING

THERE WASN'T ANYTHING I

COULD HAVE DONE

DIFFERENTLY.

THERE WEREN'T ANY SIGNS.

I TALKED ABOUT THAT A LOT

WITH COUNSELLORS AND WITH

OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

BUT BRINGING IT BACK TO THE

LORD CONTINUALLY, AND BEING

WILLING TO LAY IT THERE,

KNOWING HE WANTED TO TAKE IT

FROM ME OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

Terry: YOU SAY THAT YOU

FOUND HOPE IN THIS TRAGEDY.

IN WHAT WAY?

IN SO MANY WAYS, JUST AS

GOD HAS BROUGHT REDEMPTION

OVER OUR FAMILY, IT DOESN'T

MATTER HOW DARK THE DAY IS

OR HOW DEEP THE VALLEY IS.

IT IS NOT THE END OF OUR

LIVES, AND IT IS NOT THE END

OF THE STORY THAT GOD IS

WRITING FOR US.

THERE IS BEAUTY AND HOPE

BEYOND THESE DESPERATE

MOMENTS.

I'VE SEEN GOD UNVEIL THAT IN

MY LIFE, BOTH THROUGH

MARRIAGE TO MY HUSBAND DAN

NOW, AND ALSO OVER OUR

FAMILY.

Terry: DID YOU HAVE

MOMENTS, THOUGH, RIGHT AFTER

THIS HAPPENED, WHERE YOU

WONDERED HOW IN THE WORLD

YOU WOULD GO ON?

ABSOLUTELY.

I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW

LIFE WAS GOING TO CHANGE AND

WHAT IT WAS GOING TO LOOK

LIKE, EXCEPT TO TRUST THAT

GOD IS EVERYTHING HE SAYS HE

IS.

AND THAT HE PROMISES ARE

WITHOUT FAIL, AND THAT HE

WAS GOING TO COME THROUGH

AND CARRY US.

BUT I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND

HOW THAT WAS GOING TO LOOK.

AND THERE WERE A LOT OF

TIMES JUST WRESTLING WITH

EMOTIONS AND WANTING TO STAY

FIXED ON HIM.

Terry: DID YOU EVER

FEEL ANGRY WITH YOUR HUSBAND

ABOUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED?

YOU WERE THE ONE LEFT TO

DEAL WITH IT.

I FELT A LOT OF EMOTIONS,

BUT I KNEW ANGER IS WHAT

DROVE CHARLIE THAT DAY AT

THE SCHOOL HOUSE.

SO JUST PRESSING THROUGH

THOSE EMOTIONS AND ALLOWING

THE LORD TO BRING HEALING IS

WHAT REALLY SET ME FREE.

Terry: YOU'VE REMARRIED

NOW AND YOUR LIFE HAS MOVED

ON INTO A WONDERFUL PLACE.

BUT YOU SAY THIS, WHEN WE

FACE TRAGEDY, SOMETHING IS

RELEASED THAT IS BEAUTIFUL

THAT WOULDN'T BE RELEASED

OTHERWISE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

I THINK IT IS FINDING THE

TREASURES THAT ARE BURIED

DEEP DOWN IN YOURSELF THAT

YOU WOULDN'T THINK TO LOOK

FOR OTHERWISE OR THOUGHT

WERE CAPABLE OF BEING

THERE.

I DISCOVERED SO MUCH ABOUT

MYSELF THAT I NEVER WOULD

HAVE KNEW, APART FROM THIS

JOURNEY.

Terry: AND MAYBE

FINDING OUT WHAT GOD REALLY

IS.

ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: YOU WROTE THIS

BOOK, AND WHAT DO YOU WANT

PEOPLE TO TAKE AWAY WITH

THIS?

WE ALL HAVE PAIN IN OUR

LIVES.

I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW IT

DOESN'T MATTER HOW MUCH PAIN

YOU'RE GOING THROUGH.

THERE IS BEAUTY AND LIFE ON

THE OTHER SIDE.

GOD WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU.

HE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU.

Terry: NEVER GIVE UP.

WE THANK YOU FOR TELLING

YOUR STORY.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HEAR

MORE, YOU CAN GET MAUREEN'S

BOOK, CALLED "ONE LIGHT

STILL SHINES."

AND IT'S AVAILABLE IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

PHYLLIS EGGLAND HAS BEEN

UNDER THE NERVE BEFORE.

KNIFE BEFORE.

DOCTORS REPAIRED HER

SHOULDER 10 YEARS AGO.

SO WHEN SHE STARTED FEELING

PAIN AGAIN IN THAT SHOULDER,

SHE THOUGHT SURGERY MUST BE

IN HER FUTURE, UNTIL SHE

TURNED ON "THE 700 CLUB".

EVERYTHING I HAD TO DO, I

HAD TO DO WITH ONE ARM.

I COULD NOT HOLD A CUP OF

COFFEE IN MY HAND WITHOUT

SUPPORTING MY ARM WITH MY

OTHER ARM.

SO, YOU KNOW, THERE WAS NO

STRENGTH IN IT.

IT WAS JUST DEB

DEBILITATING.

IT WAS VERY PAINFUL.

I WAS ON PAIN MEDICATION.

I WENT TO MY FAMILY DOCTOR

FIRST.

HE ORDERED AN M.R.I.

THE M.R.I. SHOWED THAT THERE

NEEDED TO BE REPAIR IN THE

SHOULDER SOCKET AND IN THE

TENDON.

I WAS NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO

THE SURGERY AND THE SIX

WEEKS THAT IT TAKES FOR

RECOVERY AND THERAPY.

I REMEMBER WHEN I TURNED ON

"THE 700 CLUB" THAT DAY, I

WAS IN A LOT OF PAIN.

AND I SAID, GOD, I WILL BE

SO THANKFUL WHEN I AM DONE

WITH THIS PAIN.

AND IT CAME TO THE PART

WHERE THEY WERE PRAYING FOR

PEOPLE.

AND THEY WERE CALLING OUT

DIFFERENT THINGS, WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

AND THEN GORDON SAID --

Gordon: THERE IS A

WOMAN, YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED

WITH BONE SPURS, AND ITS IN

YOUR RIGHT SHOULDER, AND IT

IS CAUSING FRAYING OF THE

TENDONS AND TREMENDOUS

PAIN.

GOD IS TAKES THOSE SPURS

AWAY FROM YOU NOW.

AND I THOUGHT, COULD THAT

BE MY SHOULDER.

Gordon: DO WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO BEFORE.

BEGIN TO MOVE THAT RIGHT

SHOULDER AND REALIZED YOU'VE

BEEN COMPLETELY HEALED.

I BEGAN TO MOVE AND THERE

WAS NO PAIN.

AND I SAID, IT IS MY

SHOULDER.

I SAID, THANK YOU, GOD.

IT IS MY TURN.

AND I STARTED MOVING MY ARM

ALL AROUND, EVERYWHERE I

COULD NOT MOVE IT BEFORE.

AND ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN.

NO PAIN WHATSOEVER.

AND I HAD STRENGTH IN THAT

ARM IMMEDIATELY.

AND SO I WAS JUST SO

THANKFUL FOR GOD'S

GOODNESS.

I JUST THANKED HIM FOR

GIVING ME THAT EXTRA GIFT

THAT DAY.

Terry: IT'S WONDERFUL

TO SEE THAT.

AND IT'S WONDERFUL TO FEEL

HER EXCITEMENT.

Pat: A BEAUTIFUL LADY.

BUT, AGAIN, GORDON DIDN'T

KNOW HER.

Terry: AND THIS IS

TERRY FROM PENNSYLVANIA.

SHE TORE THE MENISCUS IN HER

KNEE.

AND SHE COULDN'T EVEN WALK.

SHE HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVING A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, SOMEBODY'S KNEE IS

LOCKED UP.

GOD IS RESTORING THE

CARTILAGE IN YOUR KNEE.

SHE CLAIMED THAT WORD FOR

HERSELF, AND WITHIN A FEW

MINUTES, SHE COULD WALK

AROUND FREELY.

SHE IS PRAISING THE LORD AND

SHE IS WALKING AROUND

FREELY.

Pat: A MENISCUS

HEALED.

THIS IS EUGENIA, AND SHE HAD

OSTEOPOROSIS.

THAT'S PRETTY SERIOUS.

Terry: VERY SERIOUS.

Pat: THE PAIN WAS

AWFUL.

BUT SHE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY TO BUY THE DRUGS TO

HELP THE PAIN.

ONE NIGHT SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND YOU SAID,

TERRY, ALL OF THAT PAIN

YOU'VE HAD, THE INABILITY TO

WALK FREELY IS GONE.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A TOTAL

HEALING.

SHE CLAIMED THAT HEALING,

AND WHEN SHE WOKE UP THE

NEXT DAY, ALL OF THE PAIN

WAS GONE.

Terry: PRAISE GOD.

Pat: FOLKS, I CAN'T

UNDERSTAND IT.

I REALLY CAN'T.

ALL I KNOW IS THAT THE GOD

WE SERVE HAS ENORMOUS

POWER.

AND HE IS HERE WITH US.

HE IS WITHIN US.

THE SPIRIT OF GOD COMES INTO

US.

AND HIS SON, JESUS, SAID THE

WORKS THAT I DO, YOU'LL DO

THESE AND GREATER WORKS

BECAUSE I'M GOING TO THE

FATHER.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

I JUST CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

IT IS KNOWLEDGE TOO

WONDERFUL FOR ANY OF US TO

UNDERSTAND.

BUT ALL I CAN SAY IS LET'S

ENJOY IT, LET'S TAKE IT, AND

LET'S ACT IN THE FAITH THAT

HE GIVES US.

SO TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN TOGETHER, AND WE'RE

GOING TO BELIEVE GOD FOR

YOU.

WOULD YOU PLEASE PRAY WITH

US.

WHAT IS IT?

THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS TOO

HARD FOR GOD.

SO WE PRAY TOGETHER.

LORD, I JOIN HANDS WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST.

AND TOGETHER WE PRAY WITH

THOSE IN THIS AUDIENCE,

WHEREVER THEY ARE, WHATEVER

NATION, WHATEVER AGE,

WHATEVER EDUCATION, WHATEVER

FINANCIAL STATUS, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

RECEIVE AN ANSWER TO YOUR

PRAYER.

WE COME AGAINST SICKNESS AND

PAIN.

WE COME AGAINST SUFFERING.

WE COME AGAINST ARTHRITIS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

T.M.J., THE LOCKED JAW, YOU

JUST HAD THAT JAW OPEN AND

ALL OF THAT PAIN IN YOUR

SHOULDERS AND YOUR NECK IS

GOING AWAY EVEN AS WE

SPEAK.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE A LUNG

CONDITION.

ACTUALLY, THIS IS MORE THAN

ONE PERSON.

SOMEONE HAS AN ISSUE WITH

HAVE A ASPIRATED, AND GOD

IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

COMPLETELY AND YOU'LL HAVE

TOTAL FREEDOM TO BREATHE

CLEARLY.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT

PROJECTILE VOMITING, AND

RIGHT NOW YOU'RE CRYING OUT,

OH, GOD HELP ME.

YOU JUST SPOKE THOSE WORDS.

GOD JUST HEARD YOU AND HE IS

HEALING YOU AND TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT AT THIS MINUTE.

AND YOUR STOMACH IS GOING TO

BE AS IT SHOULD, AND THAT

VOMITING WILL STOP NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'VE BEEN TREATED FOR

CANCER AND YOU'VE BEEN SO

WEAK AND SO ILL.

GOD IS HEALING YOUR

CONDITION RIGHT NOW.

Pat: IN JESUS' NAME.

RECEIVE AN ANSWER.

AMEN.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, THE HIT TRIO,

PHILIPS, CRAIG, AND DEAN ARE

GOING TO SING FOR US LIVE.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM THE PSALM:

"THE LORD IS CLOSE TO THE

BROKENHEARTED AND SAVES

THOSE WHO ARE CRUSHED IN

SPIRIT."

GOD LOVES YOU.

IF YOU NEED FURTHER PRAYER,

SOMEBODY TO STAND WITH YOU,

THE NUMBERS ARE AVAILABLE

ALL DAY LONG,

1-800-759-0700.

TOMORROW, "THE 700 CLUB".

BYE-BYE.
