The 700 Club - Oct. 24, 2013

Christian struggled for a reason to go on in the years following his father's suicide. Plus, Tonya suffered with horrible foot pain for years until a prayer on The 700 Club changed it all. Read Transcript


LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON.

HE WAS MY ROLE MODEL, THE

GUY I LOOKED UP TO.

Wendy: AND YOU'LL NEVER

BELIEVE WHAT THIS CHILD DID

TO SEE HIS DAD ONE MORE

TIME.

I NEVER FELT SO HAPPY IN

MY LIFE.

*

Pat: WELL, THE STANDING

JOKE IN WASHINGTON IS I'M

FROM THE I.R.S. AND I'M HERE

TO HELP YOU.

WHILE WASHINGTON HAS BEEN

FOCUSED ON THE GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN AND OBAMACARE, SOME

PEOPLE ARE STILL TRYING TO

FIND OUT WHAT THE I.R.S. WAS

DOING WHEN IT TARGETED TEA

PARTY GROUPS.

Terry: THE I.R.S.

SCANDAL HAS LED TO SOME

INVESTIGATIONS, BUT SO FAR

THERE IS STILL A GREAT DEAL

WE DON'T KNOW.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THE STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: WHEN THE

I.R.S. SCANDAL FIRST BROKE,

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS

CRIED FOUL.

President Obama: IF

YOU'VE GOT THE I.R.S.

OPERATING IN ANYTHING LESS

THAN A NEUTRAL AND

NON-PARTISAN WAY, THEN THAT

IS OUTRAGEOUS.

MY QUESTION ISN'T ABOUT

WHO IS GOING TO RESIGN.

MY QUESTION IS: WHO IS GOING

TO JAIL?

Reporter: BUT NOW,

MONTHS LATER, THE OUTCRY

SOUNDS MORE LIKE A WHIMPER.

ILLIANA JOHNSON HAS BEEN

TRACKING THE SCANDAL FOR THE

CONSERVATIVE WEBSITE AND

MAGAZINE "NATIONAL REVIEW."

SHE TELLS CBN NEWS FIVE

MONTHS AFTER THE I.R.S.

ADMITTED TARGETING

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS FOR

EXTRA SCRUTINY FOR TAX

EXEMPT STATUS, AND DESPITE

THE PRESIDENT'S PROMISES TO

FIND OUT WHAT REALLY

HAPPENED, IT DOESN'T SEEM

LIKE THERE IS AN INDEPTH

INVESTIGATION UNDER WAY TO

GET AT THE TRUTH.

I KNOW FROM A SOURCE IN

THE I.R.S. THAT PEOPLE IN

THE I.R.S. HAVE BEEN

INTERVIEWED BY THE F.B.I.

BUT I HEAR FROM TEA PARTY

GROUPS, THEY HAVE NOT BEEN

CONTACTED.

LAWYERS FOR THE TEA PARTY

AND TEA PARTY GROUPS HAVE

YET TO HEAR.

IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS SOME

KIND OF AN F.B.I.

INVESTIGATION, BUT PERHAPS

NOT AN INCREDIBLY DEEP OR

THOROUGH ONES.

Reporter: BUT LAWMAKERS

ON CAPITOL HILL ARE

INVESTIGATING, TOO, AND

THEY'VE ISSUED SUBPOENAS,

DEMANDING MORE INFORMATION

INTO WHAT THEY CALL THE

INAPPROPRIATE AND

DISAPPROPRIATE TREATMENT OF

TEA PARTY AND TEA PARTY

GROUPS.

I HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING

WRONG.

Reporter: AND THEY'VE

REPORTEDLY NEGOTIATING WITH

LAWYERS FOR LOIS LEARNER,

WHO HAS SINCE RESIGNED.

MEANWHILE, THE LEGAL BATTLES

ARE MOUNTING.

THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION

FOR MARRIAGE IS SUING THE

I.R.S. FOR PUBLICLY

DISCLOSING PRIVATE,

PROTECTED INFORMATION ABOUT

ITS DONORS, AND THE AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE,

REPRESENTING MORE THAN 40

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS IN 22

STATES HAS EXPANDED ITS

FEDERAL SUIT, CITING

EVIDENCE THAT TOP I.R.S.

WORKERS TARGETED

CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATIONS

BASED ON THEIR POLITICAL

BELIEFS.

FOR JOHNSON, SHE BELIEVES

THE BIGGEST SCANDAL IS THE

REVELATION THAT MANY

OFFICIALS AND AGENCIES, WHO

AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE

INVOLVED IN POLITICS, CAN'T

REFRAIN FROM USING THEIR

INFLUENCE AGAINST POLITICAL

OPPONENTS OF THE PARTY IN

POWER.

DEMOCRATS HAVE TRIED TO

MAKE THIS ABOUT WAS THERE A

WHITE HOUSE CONNECTION OR

WASN'T THERE.

AND IF THERE WAS A WHITE

HOUSE CONNECTION, IT IS NOT

WORTH INVESTIGATING.

AND THAT'S REALLY NOT THE

SCANDAL.

THE SCANDAL IS ABOUT THE

INHERENT POLITIZATION OF THE

FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY.

Pat: JAY SECULO FROM

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS WITH US.

JAY, WHAT IS THE DEAL?

THE I.R.S. THINKS THEY CAN

STONE WALL THIS THING AND

SOONER OR LATER IT WILL GO

AWAY?

IS THAT THEIR GAME?

Reporter: PAT, LET ME

TELL YOU THIS.

I KNOW THERE IS NOT A LOT OF

IN NEWS ABOUT THE I.R.S.

CASE.

BUT THERE IS GOING TO BE

SOON.

IN ADDITION TO THE LAWSUIT

WE'VE EXPANDED

SIGNIFICANTLY, INCLUDING

NAMING THE NEW COMMISSIONERS

THAT WERE POINTED IN THE

LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, YOU'VE

GOT SCHULMAN WHO IS NOW A

DEFENDANT, WE'VE ADDED SARAH

HALL INGRAM TO THE LAWSUIT

BECAUSE THE INFORMATION

SHARES THAT TOOK PLACE

VIOLATES THE I.R.S.'S OWN

GUIDELINES.

WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IS

THE CHIEF COUNSEL OF THE

INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

BEING SWORN IN ABOUT WHAT HE

KNEW, AND WHAT THEY DID WHEN

THEY FOUND OUT THIS

TARGETING IS GOING ON.

AND WHAT WE ARE FINDING OUT

IN THIS AMENDED COMPLAINT --

WE LAID OUT THE FACTUAL

SCENARIO ABOUT THE

STATEMENTS MADE BY THE

PRESIDENT ABOUT THE TAX

EXEMPT GROUPS, AND THE

I.R.S. ACTION WITHIN DAYS.

MEETINGS THAT TOOK PLACE AT

THE WHITE HOUSE, AND CHANGES

IN POLICY AT THE I.R.S.

WITHIN DAYS.

WE'VE LAID THIS OUT.

LOOK, IN THIS CASE -- MY

FIRST JOB -- YOU REMEMBER

THIS OUT OF LAW SCHOOL FROM

A LONG TIME AGO -- ONE OF MY

FELLOW LAWYERS IN THAT

OFFICE IS ASSISTING US ON

THIS CASE, JULIAN FORTUNA,

AND WE'VE HAD OFFICES NEXT

TO EACH OTHER, AND WE'VE GOT

THE "A" TEAM OF LITIGATORS.

YOU'VE GOT LOIS LEARNER KIND

OF TAKING THE FIFTH

AMENDMENT.

THE E-MAILS SHOWING THAT THE

F.C.C. WAS GETTING NERVOUS

ILLEGALL INFORMATION

ILLEGALLY FROM THE I.R.S.

THE I.R.S. WAS SENDING

E-MAILS TO THEIR PERSONAL

E-MAIL ACCOUNTS.

AND YOU ASK WHERE DID THOSE

GO?

BUT THE F.B.I. HAS NOT

CONTACTED ONE OF OUR

CLIENTS.

THEY DID SAY IN A PLEADING

THEY FILED IN ONE OF OUR

CASES THERE IS AN ONGOING

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION, BUT

NONE OF OUR CLIENTS HAVE

BEEN NOTIFIED.

Pat: SPEAKING OF ERIC

HOLDER, THERE WAS AN EXPOSÉ

THAT APPARENTLY HOLDER HAS

SAID IF YOU GIVE MONEY TO

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTLY OR

OBAMA, YOU WON'T BE

PROSECUTED.

IS THIS KIND OF STUFF GOING

ON?

Reporter: I HEARD ABOUT

THAT, TOO.

I DON'T THINK THAT IS A THE

REALITY OF WHAT GOES ON IN

THE PROSECUTORIAL OFFICES.

YOU CAN'T BUY YOUR WAY OUT

OF AN INDICTMENT.

ERIC HOLDER, I DISAGREE WITH

HIM ON POLICY ISSUES, BUT HE

IS NOT GOING TO DO SOMETHING

LIKE THAT.

LET ME SAY THIS, THOUGH: IT

WAS ERIC HOLDER THAT SAID

LET'S OPEN UP THE CRIMINAL

INVESTIGATION WITH THE

I.R.S. AND NOTHING

HAPPENED.

I DON'T PUT MUCH TRUST IN

WHAT THE DEPARTMENT OF

JUSTICE IS DOING, BUT I

DON'T THINK ERIC HOLDER -- I

DIDN'T HEAR THE STATEMENT.

IF HE SAID IT, I'M SURE IT

WAS INGEST.

IN GEST.

WE HAD EDUCATIONAL

ORGANIZATIONS, PRO LIFE

ORGANIZATIONS, AND THE FACT

THAT THE I.R.S. IS GOING TO

BE COORDINATING THE

ENFORCEMENT OF OBAMACARE,

HAS TO ALSO RAISE THE

CONCERN LEVEL

SIGNIFICANTLY.

AND WITH THE UNBELIEVABLY

POOR ROLLOUT OF THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, WHICH

APPEARS TO BE NEITHER

AFFORDABLE OR GIVING MUCH

CARE TO ANYONE AT THIS

POINT -- WHEN YOU LOOK AT

ALL OF THAT AND THE MULTIPLE

CHALLENGES AGAINST THE

OBAMACARE LITIGATION THAT IS

GOING ON, ON MULTIPLE

FRONTS -- WE'VE GOT EIGHT

CASES THAT WE'VE WON'T,

INCLUDING AT THE COURTS OF

APPEAL LEVEL, AND A LOT ARE

ON THE WAY TO THE SUPREME

COURT -- THE REALITY IS,

PAT, OBAMACARE WITH THE

I.R.S. ENGAGEMENT, THAT IS

NOT A GOOD SITUATION FOR THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Pat: TELL ME THE

POSTURE OF THE ACLJ ABOUT

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT?

THERE ARE SOME OF PIEC OF

THESE PEOPLE YOU'RE GOING TO

DEFEND?

WHAT'S THE STORY?

WE HAVE ACTUALLY FILED

EIGHT FEDERAL LAWSUITS

THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY,

AROUND THE COUNTRY, CHARGING

AND CHALLENGING PORTIONS OF

THE MANDATES THAT ARE IN

PLACE.

IN THREE OF THEM, WE'VE

REACHED THE COURT OF APPEALS

LEVEL.

WE WON AT THREE COURT OF

APPEALS LEVEL.

I THINK ULTIMATELY THAT CASE

IS GOING TO THE SUPREME

COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.

SO THAT'S ONE MAJOR

CHALLENGE.

THERE IS ANOTHER CHALLENGE

TO THE STATE EXCHANGE

SITUATION WHERE THE CREDITS

WERE SUPPOSED TO TAKE

PLACE.

YET THE I.R.S. CAME IN

SAYING TO EMPLOYERS, YOU

HAVE TO STILL MEET THESE

MINIMAL POLICY LIMITS, EVEN

THOUGH THERE WAS NO STATE

EXCHANGE SET UP, AND WE'RE

GOING TO PENALIZE YOU IF YOU

DON'T.

JUDGE FREEMAN IN WASHINGTON,

D.C. TWO DAYS AGO ALLOWED

THAT LITIGATION TO PROCEED.

SO THERE IS LITIGATION, PAT,

ON MULTIPLE FRONTS ON THIS.

AND THEN YOU TAKE OUT AND

JUST LOOK AT THE ROLLOUT,

WHERE THE GOVERNMENT WAS

INCAPABLE OF GETTING A

WEBSITE TO WORK.

WE LAUNCHED ONE AT THE ACLJ

THAT SAYS "I CAN'T ENROLL

.COM," AND WE BELIEVE MORE

PEOPLE HAVE SIGNED THAT ONE

THAN HAVE ACTUALLY SIGNED UP

FOR OBAMACARE.

Pat: JAY, WHAT IS THE

PRESS DOING WITH THE CASES

YOU'VE GOT?

THESE ARE PRETTY SERIOUS

THINGS.

THE MALFEASANCE OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS

LEGENDARY.

WHY DOESN'T THE PRESS BEGIN

TO PLAY ON IT?

CBN NEWS HAS DONE A

FANTASTIC JOB OF COVERAGE,

BUT YOU'RE RIGHT, YOU LOOK

AT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, IT

BARELY GETS A MENTION.

EVEN WHEN THE LAWSUITS WERE

FILED AGAINST THE I.R.S. OR

WHEN THE MANDATE CASES WERE

MOVING FORWARD -- BARELY

GETS A MENTION.

THAT'S DUE IN LARGE PART OF

THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA.

THEY DON'T LIKE THE

NARRATIVE BECAUSE IT DOESN'T

LOOK GOOD FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

THE PRESIDENT SAID WHAT THE

I.R.S. DID WAS WRONG AND HE

WAS GOING TO GET TO THE

BOTTOM OF IT.

AND FOUR WEEKS LATER THEY

WERE CALLING IN A SCANDAL,

AFTER LOIS LEARNER TOOK THE

FIFTH AMEND.

FIFTH AMENDMENT.

THE PRE PRESS HAS BASICALLY

BEEN A SHIELD FOR THE

PRESIDENT.

FOX NEWS IS REPORTING IT AND

CBN NEWS, BUT IT IS NOT

GETTING THE ATTENTION THAT

IT WOULD IF IT WAS A

REPUBLICAN.

Pat: IS LOIS LEARNER

GOING TO JAIL?

I KNOW SHE TOOK THE FIFTH,

BUT IT IS NOT EXCULPATORY

FOR ALL OF THE THINGS SHE

DID?

I THINK SHE IS GOING TO

GET SOME FORM OF IMMUNITY.

I DON'T KNOW THAT FOR A

FACT, BUT I SUSPECT SHE IS

GOING TO GET SOME FORM OF

IMMUNITY, AND SHE IS GOING

TO, AS THEY SAY IN CRIMINAL

CASES, SING LIKE A BIRD.

AND THAT SHE WAS NOT THE

ULTIMATE AUTHORITY ON IT AND

IT WENT MUCH HIGHER.

AND THAT'S RIGHT, MUCH

HIGHER, RIGHT TO THE CHIEF

COUNSEL OF THE OFFICE OF THE

I.R.S.

THE COMMISSIONER OF THE

INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE AND

THE CHIEF COUNSEL -- WE HAVE

NOW SUED THEM BOTH.

SHE KIND OF TOOK THE FIFTH

AMENDMENT, THE WAY SHE TOOK

IT WAS A QUESTION.

I WON'T BE SURPRISED IF

THERE IS SOME KIND OF

IMMUNITY.

THIS IS THE AMENDED

LAWSUIT.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, IT IS

THICK.

THIS IS ALL OF THE FACTS

THAT WE'VE GOT THAT HAVE

COME OUT WITH THE

CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS AND

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT.

WE'RE IN COURT, AND WAITING

TO SEE WHAT THE GOVERNMENT

COMES BACK WITH THEIR

RESPONSE.

Pat: I APPRECIATE WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

JAY SECULO WITH THE AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE,

AND WE'RE FIGHTING FOR YOU.

IT IS THE PUBLIC SERVICE LAW

ORGANIZATION IN AMERICA.

AND WINNING LEGENDARY

CASES.

SO JAY DIDN'T TALK ABOUT

SOME OF THE OTHERS WE'VE GOT

GOING.

ESPECIALLY THE ONE ABOUT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, WHICH IS

MONSTEROUS.

BUT IN ANY EVENT, IT IS TIME

SOMEBODY CALLED THESE

OUTFITS INTO ACCOUNT.

THIS IS POINTING TO -- AS HE

SAYS, IT IS NOT JUST THE

CHIEF COUNSELLOR AND THE

COMMISSIONER, HE IS POINTING

STRAIGHT TO THE WHITE HOUSE

ITSELF AND TO THE

PRESIDENT.

WELL, CONGRESS IS LOOKING

INTO THE FAILURE OF THE

OBAMACARE WEBSITE.

SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: PAT, THAT'S

RIGHT.

CONGRESS IS HEARING FROM THE

PRIMARY CONTRACTORS WHO

WORKED ON THE ONLINE

EXCHANGES FOR OBAMACARE.

AND THEY SAY THE

ADMINISTRATION SHARES

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE

SYSTEM'S PROBLEMS.

AN EXECUTIVE AT C.G.I., THE

MAIN SOFTWARE COMPANY THAT

WORKED ON THE WEBSITE, SAYS

THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES IS THE

QUARTERBACK OF THE PROJECT.

AND THE HEARING COMES AS

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S SUPPORTERS

ARE STARTING TO WORRY ABOUT

THE POLITICAL FALLOUT.

CHILDREN IN FOSTER CARE CAN

END UP OF VICTIMS OF SEX

TRAFFICKING.

THAT WAS THE TESTIMONY FROM

A 24-YEAR-OLD COLLEGE

STUDENT AND SEX TRAFFICKING

SURVIVOR.

SHE WAS IN THE FOSTER CARE

SYSTEM UNTIL SHE WAS 18, AND

FOR SEVEN OF THOSE YEARS,

SHE WAS A CHILD SEXUALLY

TRAFFICKED ON THE STREETS,

THE INTERNET, AND FOSTER

CARE.

ORTEZ WALKERGRU SAYS SOME

TELL KIDS THEY DON'T CARE

ABOUT THEM, ONLY THE

PAYCHECK THEY GET.

MAKING THE KIDS FEEL LIKE

THEY'RE BEING USED FOR

MONEY.

SHE THINKS THE SYSTEM CAN BE

IMPROVED, AND IS URGING THE

GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT YOUNG

KIDS IN FOSTER CARE.

AND WHAT MAKES HER STORY SO

TRAGIC IS SHE IS ONLY ONE OF

MANY OTHER KIDS CAUGHT UP IN

SEX TRAFFICKING.

Pat: I'M JUST APPALLED

AT THIS WHOLE THING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE

THING IS, IF SOMEBODY SELLS

A KE KILO OF HEROIN, HE OR

SHE HAS TO GO OUT AND GET

ANOTHER KILO OF HEROIN.

THEY CAN'T SELL IT AGAIN.

BUT IF THEY'VE GOT SOME

CHILD IN KIDDIE PORN OR AS A

SEX SLAVE.

SHE CAN BE SOLD ONE TIME OR

TWO TIMES OR 10 TIMES A

NIGHT, AND BRING HER BACK

THE NEXT DAY AND DO IT ALL

OVER AGAIN.

AFTER SHE USED HER UP AND

SHE IS TIRED OR EXHAUSTED OR

DISEASED, THEY'LL THROW HER

OUT ON THE STREET AND GO GET

ANOTHER ONE.

IT IS HORRIBLE TO THINK OF

HUMAN BEINGS BEING TREATED

THIS WAY.

I WOULD HAVE NO MERCY -- NO

MERCY -- ON THESE WHO ARE

SEX TRAFFICKERS.

NO MERCY WHATSOEVER.

I THINK THEY'RE THE VIALEST

FORM OF HUMANITY, AND THEY

NEED TO BE DEALT WITH AS THE

MONSTERS AND PREDATORS THEY

ARE.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, THE

COLLATERAL DAMAGES OF A

CIVIL WAR.

WE'LL HEAD TO A PART OF

EGYPT WHERE THE CHILDREN

DON'T CARE WHO IS IN

CHARGE.

INSTEAD, THEY CARE ABOUT

WHERE THEY'RE GETTING THEIR

NEXT MEAL.

FIND OUT HOW THEY'RE BEING

HELPED.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: AS YOU KNOW FROM

PRESS REPORTS, THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD WAS THE MOST

POWERFUL POLITICAL

ORGANIZATION IN EGYPT AT THE

FALL OF THE MUBARAK REGIME.

AND WHEN THEY TOOK POWER AND

ELECTED MOHAMMED MORSI AS

PRESIDENT, THEY LAUNCHED A

DICTATORSHIP WHICH WAS A

NANMA TO THE EGYPTIAN

PEOPLE.

WELL, THEY HAD A REVOLUTION,

AND THE ARMY TOOK OVER, AND

THE MORSI GOVERNMENT FELL.

AND IT NO LONGER DOMINATES

THE NEWS.

BUT THE TROUBLES THERE ARE

FAR FROM OVER.

THE ECONOMY OF EGYPT IS IN

SHAMBLES.

AND CHILDREN ARE AMONG THE

HARDEST HIT.

SOME OF THEM ARE EVEN

HELPING THEIR FAMILIES BY

GOING THROUGH THE GARBAGE.

BUT AS GARY LANE TELLS US,

CBN IS THERE IN EGYPT TO

HELP PEOPLE IMPROVE THEIR

LIVES.

Reporter: THE RECENT

WAVE OF VIOLENCE AND

DESTRUCTION ROLLING ACROSS

EGYPT HAS TAKEN A TOLL ON

YOUNGER GENERATIONS THERE.

SOME CHILDREN SUFFER

TRAUMA.

MANY OLDER KIDS WONDER IF

HOPE AND OPPORTUNITY WILL BE

RESTORED.

EGYPT'S CONSTITUTION

GUARANTEES ALL CHILDREN A

FREE EDUCATION.

BUT MANY HAVE TO DROP OUT OF

SCHOOL TO SUPPORT THEIR

FAMILIES.

EVEN IF THEY DO GET AN

EDUCATION, IT'S ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE TO GET A JOB.

BECAUSE THE YOUTH

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HERE IS

25%.

WHILE EGYPTIAN LAW REQUIRES

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE FOR KIDS

AGES 6 TO 14, MANY YOUNG

CHILDREN DON'T GO.

AND A THIRD OF GIRLS IN

UPPER EGYPT NEVER ATTEND

SCHOOL.

KIDS LIKE THESE TWO BOYS

HANG OUT ON THE STREETS,

TRYING TO HUSTLE A FEW

EGYPTIAN POUNDS EACH DAY.

THEY WORK FROM DAWN TO DUST,

SIFTING THROUGH GARBAGE,

SEARCHING FOR RECYCLABLES.

WHEN I GET UP IN THE

MORNING, I START COLLECTING

CAR TOTONS AND CANS.

Reporter: 90% OF THE

GARAGE COLLECTED COMES HERE

TO A PLACE CALLED GARBAGE

CITY.

IF THE CHILDREN ARE TO HAVE

A BRIGHTER FUTURE, THEY NEED

QUALITY HYGIENE AND A BETTER

EDUCATION.

MOST OF THE DAY THEY ARE

IN THE STREETS COLLECTING

PLASTIC BOTTLES AND CARTONS,

AND NO ONE IS LOOKING AFTER

THEM OR CARING FOR THEIR

NEEDS OR EDUCATION.

IT IS A BIG PROBLEM, BUT THE

MAIN ISSUE IS WITH THE

PARENTS.

THEY DO NOT SEE THE NEED TO

PROVIDE OR CARE FOR A CHILD

THEY HAVE BROUGHT INTO THIS

WORLD.

Reporter: HOTA IS AN

EGYPTIAN MOTHER WHO WORKS

WITH CBN TO HELP STREET

CHILDREN.

THESE CHILDREN HAVE NO

ONE TO LOOK AFTER THEM.

SO THEY COME TO OUR CENTER

AND WE GIVE THEM A SHOWER.

Reporter: WHILE THE

KIDS CLEAN UP, WORKERS WASH,

DRY, AND FOLD THEIR

CLOTHES.

AFTER THE SHOWER, THE KIDS

PUT ON CLEAN OUTFITS.

THEN IT IS TIME FOR

COLORING, A HOT MEAL, AND

LEARNING SOME BASICS.

I LIKE LEARNING,

ESPECIALLY WRITING AND

COLORING.

THIS IS WHAT I LIKE.

Reporter: AND BEFORE

THEY RETURN HOME FOR THE

NIGHT, BASHOY AND THE OTHER

KIDS ENJOY PLAYING SOME

GAMES.

THE CHILDREN ARE VERY

GRATEFUL THAT SOMEONE IS

TAKING CARE OF THEM AND

LOOKING AFTER THEIR NEEDS.

THE FAMILIES OF THESE

CHILDREN ARE ALSO VERY HAPPY

BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE TO

PAY US OR GIVE US ANYTHING

IN RETURN.

Reporter: WHAT

MOTIVATES THE WOMEN AND

STAFF WHO GIVE CARE AND

EDUCATION TO THESE

CHILDREN?

GOD HAS BLESSED US SO WE

MAY GIVE TO OTHERS AND BLESS

THEM.

THESE CHILDREN NEED SUPPORT

AND UNDERSTANDING IF THEY

ARE TO BEAR FRUIT IN THE

FUTURE.

I HOPE AMERICANS WILL

CONTINUE TO ASSIST US IN

MEETING THEIR NEEDS.

COME AND GIVE US A HAND.

I'M VERY HAPPY HERE AND I

WANT TO KEEP ON COMING.

Reporter: SO IN THE

MIDST OF A VOLATILE

POLITICAL CRISIS, CBN AND

ITS PARTNERS ARE HELPING

EGYPTIAN CHILDREN RISE ABOVE

THE REFUGE, BRINGING THEM

VALUE AND THE PROMISE OF A

BETTER TOMORROW.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS, CAIRO.

Pat: YOU LOOK AT THE

FACES OF THOSE CHILDREN, AND

YOU CAN SEE WHY JESUS CHRIST

SAID FOR THE LITTLE CHILDREN

TO COME UNDER ME, SUCH AS

THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

SWEET, INNOCENT LITTLE

CHILDREN.

THEIR ANGELS ALWAYS BEHOLD

THE FACE OF MY FATHER IN

HEAVEN, IS WHAT JESUS SAID.

AND YET HOW THEY'RE BEING

MISTREATED AROUND THE

WORLD.

BUT GOD LOVES THEM, AND WE

LOVE THEM.

SO IF YOU WANT TO DO

SOMETHING FOR THEM, FOR CBN,

FOR THE CHILDREN, REACHING

OUT TO THE CHILDREN WHO ARE

HURTING, JUST JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS THAT EASY.

65 CENTS A DAY.

THIS IS PART OF WHAT WE DO,

TO REACH OUT IN EGYPT, TO

REACH OUT IN LATIN-AMERICA,

TO REACH OUT WHEREVER PEOPLE

ARE HURTING, AND TO HELP

LITTLE CHILDREN WHO ARE

BEING TRAFFICKED.

WHATEVER IS GOING ON, WE'RE

THERE TO TRY TO HELP.

IN YOUR NAME, WE'RE DOING

IT.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

JUST 65 CENTS A DAY, AND YOU

CAN BE A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

AND WE NEED YOUR

PARTICIPATION.

WELL, TERRY, THERE IS MORE

EXCITING THINGS -- THERE ARE

MORE EXCITING THINGS TO TALK

ABOUT?

Terry: ALWAYS.

COMING UP, A RUNNER WITH A

PAINFUL PROBLEM.

I ACQUIRED WHAT WAS A

RUNNER'S FRACTURE IN MY

FOOT.

AND THE DOCTOR HAD SAID THAT

I HAD ACTUALLY BEEN RUNNING

ON A BROKEN FOOT FOR AT

LEAST TWO YEARS.

Terry: 10 MORE YEARS OF

PAIN FOLLOWED, UNTIL IT

DISAPPEARED IN AN INSTANT.

SEE HOW THAT HAPPENED WHEN

WE COME BACK.

Pat: FEET, SHOES, WE

SHOWED YOU YESTERDAY WHAT

ILL-FITTING SHOES WERE DOING

TO YOU AND HOW THEY WERE

CAUSING PAIN.

I WAS JUST TALKING TO

TERRY.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO THINK

THAT THERE ARE AREAS IN YOUR

FEET THAT REFLECT

DEEP-SEATED PROBLEMS

THROUGHOUT YOUR BODY.

AND THE PRESSURE POINTS IN

YOUR FEET CAN ACTUALLY

ALLEVIATE THINGS IN YOUR

SPLEEN AND KIDNEYS AND

HEART --

Terry: LIVER.

I HAD THAT HAPPEN A COUPLE

OF YEARS AGO, WHERE A WOMAN

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW SAID -- I

WAS DOING A LOT OF STANDING,

AND SHE SAID, CAN I COME

BACK STAGE AND RUB YOUR

FEET.

SHE CAME BACK AND STARTED

PUTTING THE PRESSURE POINTS

IN, AND SHE SAID, DO YOU

HAVE THIS AND DO YOU HAVE

THAT, AND SHE WAS RIGHT ON

THE MONEY.

Pat: WAS SHE REALLY?

Terry: YES, SHE WAS.

BUT IT WAS PAINFUL.

AND SHE WOULD JUST PUT THE

PRESSURE ON AND HOLD IT, AND

IT WAS AMAZING.

I THINK YOU CAN CAUSE SOME

CORRECTION FROM THAT.

Pat: WELL, I THINK WE

SHOULD.

ANYHOW, THERE WAS A RUNNER

WHO'S NAME WAS TANYA

KIMBERLY, AND SHE HAD A LOT

OF PROBLEMS, TOO.

WITH EVERY STEP, SHE FELT

PAIN ALL OVER FOR AN

INCREDIBLE 12 YEARS.

UNTIL ONE DAY SHE WATCHED A

TELEVISION PROGRAM, "THE 700

CLUB."

I ALWAYS ENJOYED RUNNING,

SINCE I WAS PROBABLY IN MY

20s.

I ACQUIRED WHAT WAS A

RUNNER'S FRACTURE IN MY

FOOT.

THE DOCTOR HAD SAID I

ACTUALLY HAD BEEN RUNNING ON

A BROKEN FOOT FOR AT LEAST

TWO YEARS.

UNFORTUNATELY, ONE OF THE

THINGS ALONG WITH THAT WAS

THAT I GOT ARTHRITIS IN THAT

SAME FOOT, IN MY RIGHT

FOOT.

AND THEN THEY SAID THAT IS

SOMETHING I WOULD ALWAYS

HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

AND I RECEIVED A CORTISONE

SHOT TO TRY TO, YOU KNOW,

DEADEN THE PAIN, BUT THAT

WAS ONLY A TEMPORARY FIX.

IN TOTAL, ABOUT 12 YEARS OF

PAIN, I MEAN, JUST

CONSISTENTLY.

NEVER ONE DAY WITHOUT THE

PAIN.

JUST ONE DAY, WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB," AND TERRY HAD A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

SHE WAS PRAYING.

AND EVERY TIME I WOULD HEAR

THEM START TO PRAY, I WOULD

SIT DOWN.

AND THEY ALWAYS SAY, GRAB

THAT AREA OF YOUR BODY THAT

YOU NEED PRAYER FOR.

SO I DID.

I GRABBED MY FOOT, AND I PUT

ONE HAND OVER MY HEART.

AND SHE SAID, YOU KNOW, YOUR

TOES ARE HURTING, AND THE

LORD IS TAKING THAT FROM YOU

RIGHT NOW.

Terry: YOU HAVE A FOOT

PROBLEM.

IT IS SOMETHING WITH THE

BONES IN YOUR TOES.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE

THAT PAIN ANYMORE.

Reporter: I JUST OPENED

MY EYES ALL OF A SUDDEN, AND

I LOOKED AT THE TV, AND I

SAID, THAT'S FOR ME.

AND I JUST STARTED THANKING

THE LORD FOR IT RIGHT AWAY.

I STOOD UP, AND BELIEVING

THAT I WAS HEALED, AND I

DIDN'T HAVE ANY PAIN.

SO I EVEN THOUGHT TO MYSELF

RIGHT AWAY, OH, IT'S MIND

OVER MATTER, MAYBE.

BUT I'M, LIKE, NO, I REALLY

DON'T HAVE ANY PAIN FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN 12 YEARS.

NOW I CAN ACTUALLY MOVE MY

TOE, WHICH IS SOMETHING

BRAND NEW.

I COULD NEVER DO THAT.

AND THAT'S PROBABLY THE MAIN

THING THAT BILL WAS ABLE TO

SEE EVIDENCE WHEN I, YOU

KNOW, TOLD HIM.

HE'S KIND OF, LIKE, REALLY?

SHE TOOK HER SHOE OFF AND

SHE WAS MOVING HER TOE

FREELY.

AND I DIDN'T SEE THIS

REDNESS AND SWOLLEN AND THE

VEINS JUST POP OUT ON TOP.

THAT WAS ALL GONE.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO BE

ABLE TO RUN.

I LIKE TO RUN A FEW TIMES A

WEEK.

ABOUT FIVE TO SEVEN MILES.

SO I REALLY AM VERY THANKFUL

THAT I CAN GET BACK INTO THE

LIFESTYLE OF DOING THAT.

I WAS JUST AMAZED.

WOW, THESE THINGS REALLY DO

HAPPEN.

GOD IS NOT JUST A BIG

GOD.

HE'S A LITTLE GOD, TOO.

YOU KNOW, HE CARES ABOUT THE

BIG STUFF, BUT HE LOVES US

ENOUGH TO CARE ABOUT THE

LITTLE STUFF.

THAT IS TRULY, TRULY

AMAZING.

Pat: TERRY, YOU DIDN'T

KNOW THAT WOMAN?

Terry: I STILL DON'T

KNOW HER, BUT I SURE AM

REJOICING WITH HER.

Pat: YOU DIDN'T KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT HER FOOT OR

HER TOES OR ANYTHING.

BUT TO THINK OF THE PAIN

EVERY STEP.

YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT YOUR

FEET UNTIL THEY START

HURTING.

AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN

THEY OCCUPY THE BIGGEST PART

OF YOUR LIFE.

Terry: BUT HOW AMAZING

TO KNOW THAT GOD DOES, AS

SHE SAID, CARE ABOUT

EVERYTHING IMPACTING OUR

LIVES.

Pat: IF YOU'RE IN PAIN

AND YOU'RE A CHILD OF GOD,

HE FEELS YOUR PAIN.

WE DON'T HAVE A GOD WHO IS

NOT TOUCHED WITH THE FEELING

OF OUR INFIRMITIES.

THIS IS JEANNIE WHO LIVED IN

A PLACE CALLED WILDWOOD

FLORIDA, AND SHE HAD SHARP

PAINS IN HER STOMACH AFTER

EVERY MEAL.

THE DISCOMFORT LASTED FROM

10 MINUTES TO AN HOUR, AND

THE PROBLEM EXISTED FOR SIX

WHOLE YEARS.

EARLIER SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM AND SHE HEARD

TERRY GIVE A WORD, "YOU HAVE

SOME KIND OF NODULE THAT

INVADING YOUR STOMACH, AND

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

AND YOU'LL BE SET FREE."

AND SH SHE SAID, THAT'S

ME.

AND THE NEXT TIME SHE ATE A

MEAL, SHE HAD NO AFTER

EFFECTS.

AND JEANNIE IN WILDWOOD,

FLORIDA, SAID I AM HEALED.

Terry: CAROLYN HAD

LIMITED MOVEMENT OF HER

NECK.

SHE HAD A PLATE INSERTED ON

THE VERTEBRAE OF HER NECK,

BUT IT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING TO

TO ALLEVIATE HER SUFFERING.

ONE DAY WE WERE PRAYING TO

GOD, AND YOU SAID, PAT, YOU

SAID IT HURTS YOU SO MUCH.

CAROLYN PUT HER HAND ON HER

NECK AND CLAIMED THE

HEALING.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS RIDING

IN THE CAR AND TURNED HER

HEAD AND REALIZED SHE DIDN'T

HAVE ANY PAIN.

AND NOW SHE IS TOTALLY FREE

FROM THE BONDAGE OF PAIN.

Pat: LOOK, GOOD LOVES

YOU, AND WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY.

AND HE SAYS, WHATEVER YOU

ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME,

THAT WILL I DO, THAT THE

FATHER MAY BE GLORIFIED IN

THE SON.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO ASK, AND

HE IS GOING TO ANSWER.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER, AND WE WILL PRAY

FOR YOU.

ALL WE ASK IS THAT YOU PRAY

WITH US.

AND AS WE JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER RIGHT HERE ON THE

SET, WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

FOR YOU.

FATHER, I PRAY WITH MY DEAR

SISTER IN CHRIST.

AND WE AGREE FOR THOSE IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE

SUFFERING.

THERE IS SOMEBODY WHO HAS AN

ARCH PROBLEM.

YOUR ARCH HAS -- I THINK

SOMETHING FELL ON YOUR ARCH

AND IT BROKE SOME BONES, AND

YOU'VE BEEN HAVING TERRIBLE

PAIN WALKING.

RIGHT NOW THE NAME ARTHUR

COMES TO MY MIND.

THE LORD HAS JUST TOUCHED

YOU.

YOU'LL FEEL A SHARP

ELECTRICITY GO THROUGH YOUR

FOOT.

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON,

YOU'RE HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE SOME KIND OF

A CONDITION WITH YOUR HAIR

FOLLICLES.

IT IS NOT WHAT'S COMMONLY

CALLED ALOPECIA.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

AND ALL OF THE SYMPTOMS ARE

GOING TO BEGIN TO GO AWAY,

AND YOU'LL BE BACK TO

NORMAL.

Pat: IT SEEMS LIKE

THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT WITH A

WELDING TORCH OR A LASER OR

SOME KIND OF A LIGHT IN AN

INDUSTRIAL SETTING, BUT YOU

SCARRED YOUR EYES.

AND THEY'VE BEEN IN REAL BAD

TROUBLE.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS REACHING IN

AND HEALING THAT.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE 20/20,

AND YOU'LL BE COMPLETELY

WHOLE.

PUT YOUR HAND OVER YOUR EYES

IN JESUS' NAME.

THANK YOU.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE AN ISSUE WITH YOUR

HEARING.

IT IS NOT GONE COMPLETELY,

BUT IT IS ALMOST LIKE YOU

HEAR IN A LONG TUNNEL.

GOD IS JUST OPENING THAT UP

FOR YOU.

YOUR HEARING IS GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY RESTORED.

Pat: SOMEBODY BY THE

NAME JEFF, I BELIEVE, IS

PRAYING FOR $50,000.

THE LORD SAID, I'VE HEARD

YOUR PRAYER.

I'LL SUPPLY THE FUNDS YOU

NEED.

WE PRAY NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

RECEIVE AN ANSWER.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: PRAISE GOD.

I ASK YOU, IF YOU WISH FOR

FURTHER PRAYER, THOSE

TELEPHONES ARE AVAILABLE.

THEY'RE TOLL-FREE.

IT WON'T COST YOU A CENT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE YOUR

NAME OR ANYTHING.

CALL.

SOMEBODY IS ON THE PHONE WHO

LOVES YOU.

IF YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO PRAY

WITH YOU, JUST PICK UP THE

PHONE AND SAY, LISTEN, I'VE

GOT LUPUS OR THIS, THAT, AND

THE OTHER, AND I ASK YOU TO

PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYER,

AND WE'LL BELIEVE GOD WITH

YOU.

BY THE WAY, WE GOT A CALL

THE OTHER DAY FROM T.B. N.

THAT PAUL CROUTCH HAD SOME

PROBLEM WHILE HE WAS

DRIVING.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS, A

HEART ATTACK, AND WE'VE BEEN

PRAYING.

I ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR OUR

DEAR FRIEND, PAUL CROUTCH.

HIS STAFF HAS ASKED FOR

PRAYER A COUPLE OF DAYS

AGO.

I'LL ADD WE'RE PRAYING FOR

HIM, AND HE IS A DEAR

FRIEND.

ALL RIGHT.

STILL AHEAD, IT IS TIME TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

TAMMY SAYS: "ONE WOMAN I

WORK WITH IS POISONOUS.

MY MANAGER REALIZES THIS,

BUT SHE CHOSE TO BRUSH IT

OFF.

I'VE CONFRONTED HER, BUT I

DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

NEXT."

I'LL DO MY BEST RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

STAY TUNED.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THREE U.S. SENATORS ARE

URGING THE STATE DEPARTMENT

TO RESPOND TO ATTACKS

AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN

EGYPT.

SINCE THE OUSTER OF MOHAMMED

MORSI, DOZENS OF COPTIC

CHURCHES HAVE BEEN BURNED,

AND THE COPTIC MINORITY IS

CONSTANTLY ATTACKED BY

MUSLIMS.

REPORTS THAT EGYPTIAN

AUTHORITIES ARE NOT DOING

ANYTHING TO PROTECT THEM ARE

ESPECIALLY TROUBLING.

THE SENATORS SAY THE ATTACKS

ON CHRISTIANS HAVE

ENDANGERED THEIR ABILITY TO

WORSHIP.

THEY WANT THE U.S. TO URGE

EGYPT'S GOVERNMENT TO

PROTECT COPTIC CHRISTIAN

CHURCHES, COMMUNITIES, AND

INDIVIDUALS.

STROKES ARE INCREASINGLY

AFFECTING YOUNGER PEOPLE,

ACCORDING TO A NEW STUDY OUT

OF LONDON.

THE NUMBER OF STROKES IN

PEOPLE AGES 20 TO 64 HAS

JUMPED BY A QUARTER.

THAT MEANS THE NUMBER OF

STROKES WORLDWIDE COULD

DOUBLE BY 2030.

RESEARCHERS SAY MOST STROKES

STILL HAPPEN TO THE ELDERLY,

BUT THERE IS A GROWING

NUMBER OF YOUNG PEOPLE WITH

RISK FACTORS FOR STROKE,

WHICH INCLUDES OBESITY,

DIABETES AND HIGH BLOOD

PRESSURE.

REMEMBER 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.

Terry: WELL, IT IS TIME

TO "BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM TAMMY, WHO SAYS, "I

WORK WITH A SMALL GROUP OF

WOMEN.

WE ALL WORK WELL TOGETHER,

WITH ONE EXCEPTION.

SHE IS POISON.

MY MANAGER REALIZES THIS,

BUT CHOOSES TO BRUSH IT

OFF.

I'VE CONFRONTED HER AND

PRAYED FOR HER, BUT I'M AT A

LOSS FOR WHAT TO DO NEXT."

Pat: WELL, YOU MIGHT

LOOK AT THE BIBLE AND SHOW

HER AT WHAT GOD SAID AT THE

TOWER OF BABEL.

IT SAYS THESE PEOPLE HAVE

ONE MIND AND SPEAK WITH ONE

VOICE, AND NOW NOTHING THEY

PROPOSE WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE.

IF YOU HAVE A DISRUPTIVE

INFLUENCE, YOU WILL NOT

ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING.

THE BIBLE SAYS VERY CLEARLY,

DRIVE OUT A SCOFFER AND

STRIFE WILL CEASE.

IT BREAKS THE COHESION.

INSTEAD OF WORKING TOGETHER,

ALL YOU'RE TRYING TO DO IS

DEFEND YOURSELF ABOUT THIS

SHARP--TONGUED WOMAN.

IF THE MANAGER DOESN'T SEE

THAT, HE IS HURTING

HERSELF.

MAYBE THE ANSWER IS TO SAY,

LOOK, YOU'RE GOING TO KILL

YOUR OWN CHANCE OF PROMOTION

BECAUSE THIS GROUP ISN'T

WORKING BECAUSE OF HER.

Terry: THIS IS

CHERISH -- A PRETTY NAME:

"I'M GOING THROUGH A NASTY

DIVORCE.

MY HUSBAND IS A NON-BELIEVER

AND IS LEAVING ME.

I KNOW IT SAYS IN 1

CORINTHIANS, IF A

NON-BELIEVE WANTS TO GO, WE

SHOULD LET THEM LEAVE.

AT WHAT POINT DOES THE

CHILDREN COME INTO PLAY?

IS IT WRONG IF I WANT FULL

CUSTODY.

I WANT TO PROTECT THEM FROM

HIS ABUSIVE ACTIONS AND

BEHAVIOUR."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS, IF

THE UNBELIEVER WANTS TO

DEPART, THE BROTHER OR

SISTER IS NOT BOUND.

LET HIM GO.

YOU WANT THE CHILDREN.

THE CHANCES ARE IF HE IS AS

ABUSIVE AS YOU SAY, HE

DOESN'T WANT THE CHILDREN.

BUT MOTHERS ALMOST ALWAYS

HAVE PRECEDENCE IN THE LEGAL

BATTLE WITH CHILDREN.

JUDGES WANT TO PUT CHILDREN

WITH THEIR MOTHERS BECAUSE

THEY'RE BETTER AT PARENTING

OF A YOUNG CHILD THAN THE

FATHERS ARE BECAUSE THE

FATHERS HAVE TO GO WORK,

ETC.

I THINK YOU'VE GOT A GOOD

CLAIM.

DO YOU WANT THE CHILDREN?

OF COURSE, GET THEM.

Terry: ONE THING THAT

IS A WORD OF WISDOM, I'VE

SEEN THAT WITH MY OWN

FRIENDS, DO NOT BAD MOUTH

THE OTHER PARENT, NO MATTER

HOW BAD THEY ARE, BECAUSE IT

IMPACTS CHILDREN.

Pat: THEY WANT TO LOVE

MOTHER AND DADDY.

THEY WANT TO HAVE A SENSE OF

HONORING THEIR FATHER.

AND THE IDEA THAT YOU'RE

SOMEHOW GETTING AN ADVANTAGE

WHEN YOU ARE CONSTANTLY

HARPING ABOUT YOUR EX -- IT

IS VERY GOOD ADVICE, TERRY.

Terry: THIS IS SOMEONE

NAMED TERRY --

Pat: NOT YOU?

Terry: NOT ME.

BUT I WILL LISTEN TO THE

ANSWER.

"HOW CLOSE ARE WE TO THE

RAPTURE?"

Pat: JESUS SAID, NOBODY

KNOWS, EVEN THE ANGELS DON'T

KNOW.

AND EVEN THE SON, WHEN HE

WAS HERE ON EARTH, DIDN'T

KNOW WHEN HE WAS GOING TO

COME BACK.

SO WHEN HE COMES BACK, HE'LL

COME BACK.

AND WHAT HE SAYS IS, OCCUPY

UNTIL I COME.

I THINK THE ANSWER FOR US

ALL OF US IS BLESS AT MANY

AS WE CAN, HELP AS MANY POOR

AS WE CAN, AND SERVE HIM

WHILE WE CAN.

AND HE SAYS, YOU KNOW, TO

THE STEWARD WHO -- HE SAYS

WHEN HE FINDS YOU SO DOING,

GIVING PORTIONS TO YOUR

FELLOW SERVANTS, THE ONE WHO

DOES THAT WILL BE BLESSED BY

THE LORD WHEN HE COMES

BACK.

SO DO WHAT YOU CAN TO HELP

YOUR FELLOWS IN THE LORD.

I WOULDN'T SPEND A LOT OF

TIME WORRYING ABOUT WHEN THE

RAPTURE IS GOING TO HAPPEN

BECAUSE NONE OF US KNOWS.

NOBODY CAN TELL YOU.

I DON'T CARE HOW MANY

PROPHECY CONFERENCES YOU GO

TO, THEY CAN'T TELL YOU.

Terry: ESTER WHO SAYS,

CTRL+ "I HEARD A STORY OF A

WOMAN WHO DIED AND WENT TO

HELL.

SHE TALKED TO SOME PEOPLE

WHO WENT TO HELL, AND THEY

SAID THEY WERE SENT TO HELL

BECAUSE OF HOW THEY WORE

THEIR JEWELRY" -- SOUNDS

LIKE I'M IN TROUBLE --

Pat: YOU'RE GOING TO

HELL, YOU JEZEBELLE.

Terry: NO MORE

TROUSERS.

Pat: THAT DIDN'T

HAPPEN.

DON'T BELIEVE IT.

Terry: THIS IS LAURA

WHO SAYS, "A QUESTION HAS

COME UP IN OUR BIBLE STUDY,

SO I WOULD LIKE YOU TO WEIGH

IN.

SOME PEOPLE HAVE SAID THAT

THE EVENTS DEPICTED IN THE

BO BOOK OF JOB DID NOT

ACTUALLY TAKE PLACE.

INSTEAD, THEY WERE IN

ALAGORY.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: WELL, IT COULD BE

ALAGORY -- WHEN THEY COUNT

THE NUMBER OF DONKIES AND

GOATS YOU HAVE, IT DOESN'T

SOUND LIKE AN ALAGORY.

BUT IT COULD BE PARTIALLY

ALAGORICAL BECAUSE IT SPEAKS

TO PERMANENT TRUTHS ABOUT

GOD'S DEALING WITH MANKIND.

I THINK IN THAT CASE, IT IS

VERY GOOD.

SO REGARDLESS OF WHETHER

ALAGORICAL OR ACTUAL, IT

SPEAKS TO TRUTH.

AND THE TRUTH IS CLEARLY

BIBLICAL AND CLEARLY SPEAKS

TO US TODAY.

Terry: SO WHAT ARE WE

TO LEARN FROM IT, I GUESS?

Pat: I WOULDN'T SPEND A

LOT OF TIME WORRYING ABOUT

THE ALAGORICAL PART BECAUSE

THE TRUTH IS THERE.

IT HAD ENOUGH VORACITY THAT

I THINK IT HAPPENED.

WHO IS TO SAY?

2,000 PLUS 2500 YEARS, MAYBE

4500 YEARS AGO -- WHO

KNOWS.

AND NONE OF US CAN PROVE

IT.

SO I WOULDN'T WORRY ABOUT

IT.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS TODAY.

BUT WE THANK YOU FOR THEM.

WE DO LOVE TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

PAT?

Pat: MARY WOODS COULD

HAVE PANICKED WHEN SHE

BECAME THE SOUL SUPPORTER

FOR HERSELF AND TWO YOUNG

DAUGHTERS.

BUT MARY DIDN'T PANIC.

INSTEAD, SHE RELIED ON GOD

TO GET HER THROUGH.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MARY WOODS

LOVES BEING A MOM.

SHE IS WORKING HARD TO

PROVIDE THE BEST FOR THE

GIRLS.

AFTER HER HUSBAND DIED, SHE

FOUND HERSELF RAISING THEM

ALONE.

EVERY DAY I HAVE TO THANK

GOD FOR GIVING ME THE GRACE

AND THE STRENGTH TO GET UP

EVERY MORNING AND BE A MOM

FOR A 7-YEAR-OLD AND A

6-YEAR-OLD, BECAUSE THEY ARE

VERY ENERGETIC, BUT I LOVE

IT.

Reporter: SHE USED TO

STAY AT HOME WITH THE KIDS,

BUT WITH HER HUSBAND GONE,

SHE NEEDED A JOB.

HOW QUICK COULD I GET A

JOB BECAUSE RENT WAS GOING

TO BE DUE THE NEXT MONTH.

I DID NOT KNOW WHAT I WAS

GOING TO DO.

Reporter: SHE DIDN'T

HAVE TO WORRY VERY LONG.

HER FORMER BOSS OFFERED HER

A FULL-TIME JOB.

I SAID, NANCY, I BELIEVE

THIS IS THE LORD.

THANK YOU.

I SAT IN AWE OF HOW GOD

MOVED SO FAST.

Reporter: MARY

FAITHFULLY TITHES AND SHE

ENJOYS GIVING TO CBN.

THE LIVES THAT YOU TOUCH

THAT I SEE IS INCREDIBLE.

THAT'S WHY I'M BLESSED IN

GIVING TO CBN.

Reporter: SHE

ESPECIALLY APPRECIATES CBN'S

ANIMATED SERIES

"SUPERBOOK."

"SUPERBOOK" IS AWESOME

BECAUSE IT IS TEACHING THE

KIDS BIBLICAL VALUES AT

THEIR LEVEL OF

UNDERSTANDING.

Reporter: AND SHE ALSO

ENJOYS BEING PART OF

REACHING PEOPLE WHO

DESPERATELY NEED HELP.

SEEING CBN OUT REACH TO

FAMILIES IN NEED OF HOMES,

WATER, FOOD -- WHEREVER THE

NEED IS -- THAT IS WHAT IS

IMPORTANT.

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THE LORD

SAYS.

Reporter: MARY

ENCOURAGES EVERYONE TO

SUPPORT CBN.

GIVING FROM YOUR HEART

WITH WILLINGNESS AND

OBEDIENCE TO THE LORD, HE

CAN'T HELP BUT TO BLESS

YOU.

Pat: HE CAN'T BUT TO

BLESS YOU.

GOD LOVES A FAITHFUL,

GENEROUS GIVER.

THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

BECAUSE GOD IS A GIVER.

HE GIVES BECAUSE HE SO LOVED

THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS

ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.

GOD WANTS US, AS HIS

CHILDREN, TO GIVE TO THE

POOR AND NEEDY AND

HELPLESS.

WE'RE HIS HAND EXTENDED.

THOSE WHO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," WE HAVE SOMETHING

CALLED "HOW SHALL WE NOW

LIVE?"

OUR PRODUCER GOT SCOTT ROSS

AND ME TOGETHER UP ON A

MOUNTAINTOP, AND I ANSWERED

A WHOLE BUNCH OF QUESTIONS.

AND WE TALKED TOGETHER ABOUT

SOME VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES

IN PEOPLE'S LIVE.

Terry: KATHRYN SAID, "I

REALLY ENJOYED "HOW SHALL WE

NOW LIVE," AND I'M LOOKING

FORWARD TO SHARING IT WITH

FAMILY AND FRIENDS."

Pat: WE'LL SEND ONE OF

THESE TO KATHRYN AND OTHERS,

AND SHE HAS ALREADY GOTTEN

ONE BECAUSE SHE IS A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, ONE

OF THE HAPPIEST DAYS IN THIS

BOY'S LIFE.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT IS THE

DAY SHE TRIED TO COMMIT

SUICIDE.

I KEPT TELLING MYSELF,

I'M GOING TO DIE TODAY.

I'M GOING TO DIE TODAY, AND

I'M HAPPY.

I LEFT THE HOUSE SURE THAT I

WAS GOING TO WALK AWAY AND

BLEED TO DEATH.

Terry: FIND OUT WHY HE

WANTED TO DIE, AND WHAT

SAVED HIS LIFE, AFTER THIS.

Terry: 28 STITCHES,

THAT'S HOW MANY IT TOOK TO

SHOW CHRISTIAN RAMOS BACK

TOGETHER AFTER HE SLASHED

HIS OWN LEFT ARM.

BUT CHRISTIAN NEVER WANTED

TO GET THE STITCHES.

HE WANTED TO BLEED TO

DEATH.

I GOT UP, I WENT TO THE

KITCHEN, AND I GRABBED THE

KNIFE.

I'M JUST SEEING BLOOD COMING

OUT OF MY ARM.

I NEVER FELT SO HAPPY IN MY

LIFE.

IT WAS LIKE CONFIRMATION

THAT THIS IS GOING TO WORK.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN

RAMOS BELIEVED HE HAD REASON

TO BE HAPPY ABOUT DEATH.

HE THOUGHT IT WOULD REUNITE

HIM WITH HIS BELOVED

FATHER.

HE WAS THE MAN I LOVED

GROWING UP.

HE WAS MY ROLE MODEL.

HE WAS THE GUY I LOOKED UP

TO.

Reporter: HE DIDN'T

REALIZE HIS FATHER BATTLED

DEPRESSION AND EVENTUALLY

TOOK HIS OWN LIFE.

CHRISTIAN WAS JUST NINE.

I REALIZED MY DAD WASN'T

GOING TO BE AROUND NO MORE.

I CRIED LIKE I NEVER CRIED

BEFORE.

BECAUSE I KNEW I WAS GOING

TO BE ALONE.

Reporter: AS HE GREW

OLDER, HE STRUGGLED WITH

THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE.

HE SAID HIS FATHER APPEARED

TO HIM IN DREAMS,

ENCOURAGING CHRISTIAN TO

KILL HIMSELF.

I HAD THIS DREAM SO MANY

TIMES.

AND EVERY TIME IT FELT LIKE

IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO

DO.

Reporter: ONE DAY,

CHRISTIAN DECIDED TO JOIN

HIS FATHER.

I KEPT TELLING MYSELF,

I'M GOING TO DIE TODAY.

I'M GOING TO DIE TODAY.

I'M HAPPY.

I'M GOING TO GO WITH MY

FATHER.

I LEFT THE HOUSE SURE I WAS

GOING TO WALK AWAY AND BLEED

TO DEATH.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN

COLLAPSED JUST OUTSIDE HIS

HOUSE.

A STRANGER FOUND HIM AND

RUSHED HIM TO THE HOSPITAL,

WHERE DOCTORS SAVED HIS

LIFE.

BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT

CHRISTIAN WANTED.

I WAS ANGRY THAT I DIDN'T

GET TO TAKE MY LIFE.

AND ANGRY AT EVERYBODY

BECAUSE I ENDED UP IN THIS

PLACE.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN

WENT THROUGH A PSYCHIATRIC

RECOVERY PROGRAM, WHERE HE

WAS ENCOURAGED TO WRITE TO

EXPRESS HIMSELF.

IN THE BEGINNING IT

STARTED OFF LIKE POETRY.

AND THEN I REALIZED I COULD

DO A RAP SONG.

AND I REMEMBER WRITING A

SONG ABOUT HOW LONELY I

FELT, HOW SAD I WAS.

Reporter: AFTER HIS

RELEASE, CHRISTIAN PURSUED A

CAREER AS A RAPPER.

HE OFTEN WROTE ABOUT HIS

DESIRE TO DIE.

A STRANGER HEARD HIS DARK

LYRICS, AND TEXTED

CHRISTIAN, ASKING HIM TO

TALK TO HIM A FEW MINUTES

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

CHRISTIAN WANTED NO PART OF

IT.

OUT OF EVERYBODY, I

DIDN'T WANT TO TALK TO HIM.

LOOKING AT HIS FACE, I KNEW

HE WAS A PREACHER.

Reporter: ONE DAY HE

WENT FOR WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS

A CASUAL RIDE WITH A

FRIEND.

HE WAS STUNNED WHEN HIS

FRIEND STOPPED THE CAR AND

HE WAS ABOUT TO ROB A MAN,

AND EXPECTED CHRISTIAN TO

HELP.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LOOK

LIKE A PUNK, SO I DIDN'T

WALK AWAY.

I DID THE WRONG THING.

Reporter: HIS FRIEND

PULLED A GUN ON A MAN.

I KNEW WHAT WE WERE DOING

WAS WRONG.

I KNEW THIS PERSON DIDN'T

DESERVE WHAT WE WERE DOING

TO HIM.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN WAS

CAUGHT AND WAS CONVICTED OF

ARMED ROBBERY.

I KNEW I LOST

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: INSTEAD OF

LETTING PRISON DESTROY HIS

LIFE, CHRISTIAN USED THE

TIME TO TURN HIS LIFE

AROUND.

THAT'S WHEN HE REMEMBERED

THE STRANGER WHO HAD TEXTED

HIM ABOUT JESUS.

THIS WAS THE PLACE WHERE

I KNEW, YOU KNOW, THAT IT

WAS THE BEGINNING FOR

SOMETHING GOOD, FOR

SOMETHING GREAT.

I WAS GOING TO BE A CHANGED

MAN.

I WANTED TO CHANGE.

THINGS WERE NOT GOING TO BE

THE SAME.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN

STARTED READING HIS BIBLE.

A PRISON GUARD SAW HIM AND

ASKED IF HE HAD ANY

QUESTIONS.

I ASKED HIM, I SAID, HOW

DO I KNOW I HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM?

HOW DO I KNOW GOD REALLY GOT

MY BACK AND HE LIVES IN ME?

Reporter: THE GUARD

EXPLAINS THAT CHRISTIAN

NEEDED TO ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS AND ACCEPT JESUS

CHRIST AS HIS SAVIOR.

ACCEPTING CHRIST WAS JUST

THE BEST FEELING IN THE

WORLD.

MY HEAVENLY FATHER WAS THERE

WITH ME, AFFECTING ME.

I KNEW THAT I WAS MEANT TO

DO GREAT THINGS.

AT THAT MOMENT, I JUST

KNEW.

IN HIS EYES, I WAS HIS

CHILD.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN

READ HIS BIBLE EVERY DAY.

SOON HE NO LONGER FELT THE

PAIN OF LOSING HIS DAD.

I WAS EASY FOR ME TO

FORGIVE MY FATHER THEN

BECAUSE I KNEW I HAD A

FATHER IN HEAVEN, WHO WAS MY

HEAVENLY FATHER, AND HE

LOVES ME.

HE LOVES ME.

Reporter: AFTER NEARLY

TWO YEARS, HE WAS RELEASED

FROM PRISON AND CONTINUES TO

GET CLOSER TO GOD.

CHRISTIAN MARRIED AMANDA,

AND THE RAMOSES ARE

EXPECTING THEIR SECOND

CHILD.

HE RELIES ON HIS HEAVENLY

FATHER TO BE THE TYPE OF DAD

HE DIDN'T HAVE.

NO MATTER WHAT, THE UPS

AND DOWNS, TO KNOW I HAVE A

GOD THAT IS ALWAYS THERE,

ALWAYS THERE FOR ME, IT'S

JUST AMAZING.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

CHRISTIAN IS NOT ANY

DIFFERENT THAN ANY OF US.

WE ALL WANT TO KNOW THAT

WE'RE LOVED, THAT WE HAVE

VALUE.

WE WANT TO KNOW THAT THERE

IS SOMEBODY WHO, AS HE SAID,

HAS OUR BACK AND IS GOING TO

BE THERE FOR US.

WHEN HIS DAD DIED, HE FELT

LIKE HE LOST ALL OF THAT.

YOU KNOW, LIFE IS FULL OF

CHOICES BECAUSE THERE ARE

MANY THINGS THAT CONFRONT

EACH OF US IN OUR LIVES.

NOW, WHEN YOU HAVE A MOMENT

LIKE THAT, A PLACE WHERE YOU

FEEL LOST, WHERE YOU FEEL

LIKE EVERYTHING HAS FALLEN

OUT OF YOUR HANDS AND YOU

CAN'T DO ANYTHING ANYMORE,

YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO YOU

ARE OR WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT.

HE ALMOST MADE THE WRONG

CHOICE.

THERE WAS A CHRISTIAN PERSON

GOD SENT TO HIM WITH A

MESSAGE ABOUT HIS LOVE.

HE DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR THE

MESSAGE BECAUSE HE HAD MADE

A DIFFERENT CHOICE.

AND YET OUR RELENTLESS GOD,

WHO LOVES US MORE THAN WE

CAN KNOW OR CERTAINLY

UNDERSTAND, CAME AGAIN TO

HIM IN PRISON.

CAME THROUGH HIS WORD.

CAME THROUGH THE PRISON

GUARD.

GOD WILL SEND MANY MESSAGES

TO YOU AND ME SAYING, I'M

OVER HERE; CHOOSE ME.

SO TODAY I WANT TO SAY TO

YOU, SOME TOUGH STUFF HAS

HAPPENED IN LIFE TO YOU.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO

WITH THAT?

YOU KNOW, YOU CAN WALLOW IN

THAT, YOU CAN TAKE HOLD OF

THE BITTERNESS, THE ANGER,

THE PAIN OF THE LOSS, OR YOU

CAN COME HOME TO FATHER,

HEART OF GOD.

HE IS SO BIG.

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, WHEN

YOU DON'T KNOW HIM, JUST HOW

ABLE HE IS TO LOVE YOUR HURT

AWAY, TO HEAL YOUR

BROKENNESS, TO GIVE YOU A

BRAND NEW BEGINNING.

IF YOU FOCUS ON THAT, YOU'LL

MISS HIM.

IF YOU FOCUS ON HIM, YOU'RE

GOING TO GET EVERYTHING

YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.

SO TODAY I WANT TO ASK YOU,

INVITE JESUS CHRIST INTO

YOUR HEART TO BE YOUR

SAVIOR.

SAVIOR FROM WHAT?

THE BIBLE SAYS WE'RE ALL

SINNERS.

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US FALLS

SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

THAT'S WHY JESUS CAME.

IT'S WHY HE DIED, TO COVER

THE SIN THAT IS IN YOUR LIFE

AND IN MINE.

TO GIVE US THE KIND OF FRESH

START, THE POWER TO LIVE

LIFE DIFFERENTLY, AND EVEN

BEYOND THAT.

ETERNITY WITH HIM.

IT'S NOT BECAUSE WE DESERVE

IT.

IT IS BECAUSE HE IS SO

AMAZING IN HIS LOVE AND HIS

FORGIVENESS AND HIS GRACE.

HIS PLAN FOR YOU AND FOR

ME.

HE WANTS TO BE WITH US.

HE WANTS TO BE WITH YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHAT THE

ENEMY HAS MEANT FOR EVIL GOD

WILL USE FOR GOOD AND WORK

TO YOUR GOOD, IF YOU'LL GIVE

IT TO HIM.

TODAY JUST GET HONEST WITH

GOD.

TELL HIM WHAT YOUR PAIN IS.

TELL HIM WHAT YOUR ANGER IS

ABOUT.

TELL HIM WHAT YOUR

RESENTMENT AND BITTERNESS

IS.

AND THEN SAY, GOD, I'M

GIVING THIS ALL TO YOU.

I'M LIFTING IT UP TO YOU.

I WANT YOU TO INVADE MY

HEART AND MY LIFE.

I WANT TO BE WITH YOU.

I WANT TO BELONG TO YOU.

FATHER, I WANT YOU TO BE MY

DAD.

HE IS A FATHER TO THE

FATHERLESS.

THAT'S WHAT THE WORD OF GOD

SAYS.

AND YOU CAN HAVE THAT

TODAY.

GET REAL WITH GOD.

HE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE.

JUST INVITE HIM INTO YOUR

HEART.

CONFESS YOUR SINS AND ASK

HIM FOR A NEW BEGINNING.

HE SPECIALIZES IN THAT.

THE GOD OF A SECOND CHANCE,

A THIRD CHANCE, A FOURTH

CHANCE.

IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING

SPECIFIC IN YOUR LIFE THAT

YOU WOULD LIKE SOMEONE TO

PRAY ABOUT WITH YOU TODAY,

WE HAVE PRAYER COUNSELLORS

STANDING BY.

THERE IS THE NUMBER,

1-800-759-0700.
