Discover Channel’s Gold Rush star Todd Hoffman discusses why he took a chance on finding gold in the midst of economic challenges. Plus, Superbook wows an audience at a special movie night event at London Bridge Baptist Church in Virginia Beach Read Transcript


A NAGGING COUGH.

I COUGHED ALL NIGHT

LONG.

AND A BREATH OF FRESH

AIR.

AND IT WAS JUST THAT

FAST.

PLUS, FROM TV'S "GOLD

RUSH," THE MAN WHO RISKED

EVERYTHING IN SEARCH OF THE

MOTHER LOAD.

SCOTT HOFFMAN JOINS US LIVE

ON TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THE TRAGEDY IN THE

PHILIPPINES STILL UNFOLDS.

I WANT TO CORRECT SOMETHING

I SAID YESTERDAY.

THE CBN TEAM WAS ON THE WAY

FROM MANILA.

IT GOT HELD UP BECAUSE OF

DIFFICULTIES IN AIR TRAVEL.

AS FAR AS I CAN TELL, IT IS

ON THE GROUND NOW.

Terry: THERE WAS

ANOTHER STORM COMING, SO

THEY COULDN'T GET IN THERE.

Pat: IN ANY EVENT,

WE'VE GOT SOME SHOCKING

PICTURES OF THINGS THAT ARE

HAPPENING OVER THERE.

BUT RELIEF SUPPLIES ARE

SLOWLY MAKING THEIR WAY TO

THE DEVASTATED SURVIVORS,

AND THE AID IS COMING FROM

ALL OVER THE WORLD,

INCLUDING, AS I SAID, CBN.

Terry: THAT STORM

EFFECTED MORE THAN

11 MILLION PEOPLE.

WE HAVE TWO REPORTS FROM CBN

NEWS, BEGINNING WITH HEATHER

CELLS.

Reporter: THOUSANDS ARE

LINED UP AT THE AIRPORT IN

TACLOBAN, HOPING TO LEAVE AN

ISLAND THAT HAS BEEN WIPED

OUT BY THE STORM OF A

LIFETIME.

A MAN FROM THE U.K. IS ONE.

WE HAVE NO ELECTRIC OR

MOBILE PHONES.

PEOPLE AT HOME HAVE NO IDEA

WHETHER WE'RE ALIVE, SAFE,

OR NOT.

Reporter: FOR THOSE

LEFT BEHIND, IT IS DAY OF

WAITING AND HOPING THAT

RELIEF SUPPLIES WILL BEGIN

TO POUR IN.

IT IS CHAOTIC.

WE DON'T KNOW WHERE TO GO TO

GET ANY FOOD.

SO YOU JUST WAIT FOR HELP.

Reporter: THE LOGISTICS

OF GETTING HELP TO THOSE WHO

NEED IT ARE IMMENSE.

THE TYPHOON DESTROYED THE

PORT IN TACLOBAN, SO BOATS

CANNOT GET IN.

ONLY PLANES.

ON THE ISLAND ITSELF, THERE

IS NO GASOLINE, AND MANY

ROADS ARE DAMAGED AND

IMPASSEABLE.

ON DAY SIX OF THIS DISASTER,

THE UNITED NATIONS

APOLOGIZED FOR THE DELAYS IN

GETTING RELIEF TO THE

SURVIVORS.

I DO FEEL WE HAVE LET

PEOPLE DOWN BECAUSE WE HAVE

NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET IN MORE

QUICKLY.

Reporter: IN THE

MEANTIME, FILIPINOS HAVE

BEGUN TO BURY THE DEAD IN

MASS GRAVES.

THE TOLL STANDS NEAR 2400,

AND IT IS STILL EXPECTED TO

RISE.

HERE IS GEORGE THOMAS WITH A

CLOSE-UP LOOK AT THE

DISASTER AND THE RELIEF

EFFORTS.

George: ON A PRIVATE

PLANE LOADED WITH RELIEF

SUPPLIES, WE HEADED ON A

TWO-HOUR JOURNEY, SOUTH FROM

MANILA.

OHOH, MY GOSH, LOOK AT THAT

DEVASTATION.

THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

CBN NEWS GOT AN AERIAL VIEW

OF THE DESTRUCTION LEFT BY

TYPHOON HAIYAN.

AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE,

DESTROYED HOMES, TREES

COMPLETELY FLATTENED.

LAST FRIDAY THE EYE WALL OF

TYPHOON HAIYAN CAME RIGHT

HERE.

MADE ITS FIRST LAND FALL

HERE.

George: JOHN TAN IS CBN

ASIA'S GENERAL MANAGE.

THIS IS THE FIRST TOWN

HIT BY THIS POWERFUL TYPHOON

HAIYAN.

George: HE SAYS THE

HARDEST HIT CITY NORTH OF

HERE, TACLOBAN, BUT OTHER

CITIES ARE STRUGGLING TO

COPE.

WE FELT WE SHOULD HELP

THEM.

George: CBN DISASTER

RELIEF AND LOCAL PARTNERS

DELIVERED MUCH-NEEDED FOOD,

BLANKETS, TENTS, SLEEPING

BAGS, AND CLOTHES.

FROM TODAY, WE HOPE WE

CAN CONTINUE TO BRING MORE

GOODS ON A DAILY BASIS.

George: ANT TONE YO

ANTONIO IS OVERSEEING THE

SUPPLIES COMING IN TO THE

AIRPORT.

OUR FOOD IS SCARCE.

WE'RE ISOLATED, AND IT IS

HARD TO GET TO OUR CITY.

BUT THE FOOD YOU'VE BROUGHT

AND OTHER MATERIALS WILL BE

A BIG HELP.

George: SECURITY IS A

BIG CONCERN.

THE PHILIPPINE ARMY AND

POLICE ARE ON THE GROUND TO

KEEP RESIDENTS FROM RIOTING

AND LOOTING.

THE SECURITY IS MUCH

BETTER NOW, NOW THAT THE

POLICE ARE HERE TO WATCH

OVER THE TOWN.

George: HUNDREDS ARE

WAITING AT THE AIRPORT TO

ESCAPE THE CHAOTIC AFTERMATH

OF THE STORM.

I'M LEAVING MY PARENTS

AND MY CHILDREN HERE AND

GOING TO MANILA TO GET HELP

FROM RELATIVES BECAUSE WE'VE

LOST EVERYTHING.

George: FIVE DAYS AFTER

THE POWERFUL TYPHOON HIT,

MANY HERE ARE GETTING

DESPERATE.

I LOST EVERYTHING.

WHAT I'M WEARING TODAY IS

ALL I'VE HAD.

I'VE BEEN WEARING THE SAME

CLOTHES SINCE THE TYPHOON.

THIS WAS OUR DINING AREA.

OVER THERE WAS OUR BEDROOM.

George: OTHERS HAVE NO

OTHER OPTION BUT TO STAY.

I WAS IN THIS CORNER,

LIKE THIS.

MY CHILD WAS NEXT TO ME WITH

A HELMET ON.

MY OTHER CHILD WAS IN A

CONTAINER, AND MY WIFE IN

THIS CORNER.

George: DESPITE THE

CHALLENGES HEAD, STEVE SAYS

HE'LL SOMEHOW FIND A WAY TO

REBUILD, BECAUSE THIS IS,

AFTER ALL, HOME.

WE DON'T KNOW WHERE WE GO

FROM HERE.

BUT WE'RE JUST THANKFUL TO

GOD TO BE ALIVE.

FOR NOW, WE JUST TAKE ONE

DAY AT A TIME.

George: GEORGE THOMAS,

CBN NEWS, GUIAN,

PHILLIPIANS.

Pat: AND WE HAVE SOME

PICTURES THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" TOOK, AND WE'D

LIKE TO SHOW YOU THEM

BECAUSE THEY'RE SO

DRAMATIC.

YOU CAN SEE THE

DEVASTATION.

AND YOU CAN SEE THE CLOSE-UP

PICTURES OF WHAT WAS THERE.

THAT WAS TAKEN BY OUR

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PEOPLE.

AND THESE ARE DEAD BODIES

THAT HAVE BEEN LAID OUT, YOU

KNOW, WAITING BURIAL.

AS YOU GO DOWN THE STREETS.

I WAS THERE IN KATRINA, AND

WE SAW THINGS MUCH LIKE

THIS.

I REMEMBER OUT IN

MISSISSIPPI AND OTHER AREAS

ALONG THE GULF, BUT THIS

THING IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE.

AND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

KNOW YOU WANT TO HELP.

SO THE ADDRESS IS CBN'S

DISASTER RELIEF, CBN CENTER,

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA.

AND WE CAN GIVE GENEROUSLY

TO THAT.

BECAUSE THE LORD WILL BLESS

YOU AND HAS BLESSED YOU, AND

I THINK WE HAVE TO LOOK

AFTER THESE PEOPLE.

I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO

BE IN THE FIRST RESPONDER,

AND I WAS IN ERROR BECAUSE

TRANSPORTATION WAS SUCH THEY

COULDN'T GET THERE.

Terry: I THINK WE HAD

PEOPLE ON THE GROUND, BET

BUT WE COULDN'T GET THE

SUPPLIES THERE.

Pat: AND BIG WATER

TREATMENT SHOULD BE

DELIVERED IN THE NEXT DAY OR

TWO.

I DON'T KNOW HOW SOON IT IS

GOING TO BE, BUT THEY'LL BE

ABLE TO PROCESS 300,000

GALLONS A DAY OF WATER, JUST

ONE OF THOSE MACHINES, AND

WE'VE GOT A NUMBER OF THEM

COMING.

THAT'S A CRUCIAL NEED.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: YOU WOULD THINK AN

ISLAND NATION SURROUNDED BY

WATER WOULDN'T BE ANY

PROBLEM, BUT IT'S FRESH

DRINKING WATER THEY NEED.

WE HAVE A SYSTEM TO

CHLORINATE THE WATER AND

PURIFY IT.

JUST PRAY FOR THOSE PEOPLE.

THE FILIPINOS ARE LOVELY,

LOVELY, WONDERFUL PEOPLE,

AND THIS SUFFERING BREAKS

YOUR HEART.

WELL, WILL IS SOME SUFFERING

GOING ON IN WASHINGTON.

HERE AT HOME DEMOCRATS IN

CONGRESS ARE GETTING MORE

AND MORE WORRIED ABOUT ALL

OF THE FAILURES WITH THAT

HEALTH CARE LAW.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, THE

WHITE HOUSE IS TRYING TO

COME UP WITH SOME SORT OF

FIX FOR OBAMACARE AFTER

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HAVE HAD

THEIR INSURANCE CANCELLED.

AND THE FIRST NUMBERS SHOW

THAT LESS THAN 27,000 PEOPLE

SIGNED UP FOR THE PROGRAM IN

THE FIRST MONTH THROUGH THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S

OBAMACARE WEBSITE.

CONGRESS IS STILL HOLDING

HEARINGS ON WHY THE WEBSITE

WAS SUCH A FIASCO.

YOU'VE GOT THE FANCY

TITLE.

YOU'RE THE CHIEF INFORMATION

OFFICER OF THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA.

AND YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT

THIS BEFORE THE BIGGEST

DOMESTIC POLICY PROGRAM

WEBSITE IN THE HISTORY OF

THIS COUNTRY EVER IS

LAUNCHED, AND YOU DIDN'T

KNOW ABOUT THIS?

Reporter: DEMOCRATS ON

CAPITOL HILL ARE DEEPLY

WORRIED ABOUT THE PROGRAM,

ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY'LL BE

FACING VOTERS NEXT YEAR.

AND 50% OF VOTERS BELIEVE

PRESIDENT OBAMA KNOWINGLY

LIED WHEN HE TOLD AMERICANS

THEY COULD KEEP THEIR HEALTH

CARE PLANS UNDER OBAMACARE.

40% THINK HE DIDN'T KNOW THE

LAW WOULD CAUSE PEOPLE TO

LOSE THEIR INSURANCE.

PAT, YO DO YOU THE THINK

THE 40% WHO THINK HE DIDN'T

KNOW ARE GIVING HIM THE

BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT?

Pat: YES.

I THINK THEY'RE HARD-CORE

DEMOCRATS AND THEY'RE NOT

GOING TO GIVE IN,

REGARDLESS.

I WAS READING ABOUT HIM AND

CLINTON -- EVERYBODY THOUGHT

CLINTON WAS A SLICK WILLIE

FROM ARKANSAS, AND THEY

THOUGHT THAT, AND SO THEY

EXPECTED IT, AND THEY LOVED

HIM ANYHOW.

BUT OBAMA, HE RESTS ON HIS

CREDIBILITY.

HE IS ELOQUENT, AND HE HAS A

GIFT, AND HE IS ANOINTED,

AND ALL OF THIS KIND OF

STUFF.

AND NOW THEY FIND HE HAS

FEET OF CLAY.

(A) HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE

IS DOING AND (B) HE DOESN'T

TELL THE TRUTH.

I DON'T THINK HE CAN

RECOVER.

WHAT IS HE GOING TO PROPOSE

IN THE NEXT YEAR THAT IS

GOING TO CHANGE THINGS

AROUND?

THE ANSWER IS NOTHING.

AND THE DEMOCRATS HAVE TO

RUN ON THIS.

AND SCHULTZ OF THE DEMOCRATS

SAID, WELL, WE'RE GOING TO

RUN ON OBAMACARE.

IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT

THING.

AND KARL ROVE SAID I HOPE

THEY FOLLOW THAT FAILED

POLICY.

CAN YOU IMAGINE GOING TO THE

VOTERS WHEN THEY WANT TO

KILL YOU FOR WHAT YOU'VE

JUST DONE TO THEIR HEALTH

CARE?

I WOULDN'T BE IN THE SHOES

FOR SOME OF THOSE FOLKS UP

FOR RE-ELECTION IN THE

WORLD.

BUT IT LOOKS GOOD RIGHT NOW

FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

COMING IN CONGRESSIONAL

MID-TERM ELECTIONS.

THEY'LL WIN A NUMBER OF

SEATS AND KEEP CONTROL OF

THE HOUSE.

WHETHER THEY CAN TAKE THE

SENATE -- BUT THERE ARE

SEVERAL STATES IN PLAY THAT

WOULD HAVE PROBABLY GONE FOR

ROMNEY, BUT THEY GOT THE

SENATE SEATS.

I THINK THE DEMOCRATS COULD

VERY WELL LOSE THE SENATE,

AS WELL AS THE HOUSE.

Terry: IT WILL BE AN

INTERESTING ELECTION TO

WATCH.

Pat: WELL, THEY'VE GOT

TO FIX THIS THING.

AND WHAT THEY OUGHT TO DO IS

SAY, WE SCREWED UP.

IT WAS A MISTAKE.

WE'RE GOING BACK TO THE

DRAWING BOARDS.

EVERYTHING IS OFF THE

TABLE.

WE'RE SORRY WE PUT YOU

THROUGH THIS TROUBLE.

BUT IT WILL TAKE ANOTHER

YEAR TO FIX IT, AND WE'LL DO

IT.

Terry: I THINK PEOPLE

WOULD WELCOME THE CANDOR.

Pat: BUT YOU'RE NOOT

GOING TNOT GOING TO GET

CANDOR OUT OF OBAMA.

Reporter: SINCE 2007,

T.S.A. HAS SPENT NEARLY A

BILLION DOLLARS TO TRAIN

AGENTS HOW TO IDENTIFY AND

SCREEN SUSPICIOUS

PASSENGERS.

BUT THE GOVERNMENT

ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE CALLED

THE PROGRAM, KNOWN AS S.P.O.

T., A WASTE.

THE REPORT, THE SUBJECT OF A

HEARING ON CAPITOL HILL

TODAY, SHOWS THE RESULTS OF

PROFILING WERE PROBABLY NO

BETTER THAN CHANCE.

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS

ARE CONSIDERING DEFUNDING

THE PROGRAM.

WELL, THE BOOK "HEAVEN IS

FOR REAL," THE NUMBER ONE

"NEW YORK TIMES" BEST-SELLER

WILL SOON BE A MAJOR MOTION

PICTURE.

THE BOOK TELLS THE TRUE

STORY OF HOW 4-YEAR-OLD

COLTON BURPO HAD A

NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE IN THE

OPERATING ROOM AND LATER

TOLD PEOPLE HE HAD BEEN TO

HEAVEN.

CBN NEWS HAS AN EARLY LOOK

AT THE PROMOTIONAL TRAILER

FOR THE MOVIE WHICH IS

COMING NEXT YEAR FROM

TRI-STAR PICTURES.

THE PAIN I SUFFERED

WATCHING MY SON CLOSE TO

DEATH.

WE'RE IN TROUBLE HERE.

WE CALLED OUR FRIENDS TO

PRAY FOR HIM.

THE HOSPITAL STAFF SAID

THAT YOUR SON WAS NOT

EXPECTED TO SURVIVE.

THEY USED THE WORD

"MIRACLE."

YOUR SON HAD A NEAR-DEATH

EXPERIENCE.

HE SAW THINGS I CANNOT

EXPLAIN.

I LOOKED DOWN AND MAMA

WAS IN ONE ROOM, AND YOU

WERE IN ANOTHER ROOM YELLING

AT DAD.

HE HAS BEEN OUT THERE

STARING FOR HOURS.

IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH

COLTON?

WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?

SOMETIMES HE SAYS WEIRD

THINGS.

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE

BEEN HERE BEFORE, SON.

YOU HAVE A DAD NAMED

POP.

YOU SAW MY GRANDFATHER?

WHERE DID YOU SEE HIM?

IN HEAVEN.

IS THIS THE MAN YOU SAW?

NO.

IN HEAVEN, EVERYBODY IS

YOUNG.

IS THIS HIM?

YEAH, THAT'S HIM.

THAT'S POP.

I WANT TO BELIEVE HIM.

EVERYTHING HE TALKS ABOUT

IS IMPOSSIBLE.

YOU SAW HEAVEN.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

WE WANT TO BE SUPPORTIVE,

BUT WE CAN'T HAVE OUR CHILD

TURN INTO A CIRCUS.

THEY DON'T BELIEVE ME.

DON'T YOU THINK WE NEED

TO BE TALKING ABOUT THIS

LIFE.

DO YOU THINK YOUR SON

WENT TO HEAVEN?

EVERYBODY WAS ALL RIGHT.

HE IS MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: WELL, YOU CAN

SEE THE FULL TRAILER FOR THE

MOVIE STARTING TOMORROW ON

CBNNEWS.COM.

THAT MOVIE LOOKS LIKE IT HAS

THE POTENTIAL TO BE A TRULY

TRANSFORMATIONAL FILM.

Pat: I CAN'T BELIEVE

IT.

HE FIRST APPEARED ON OUR

PROGRAM WHEN WE WERE DOING A

SERIES ABOUT MIRACLES.

AND WE DID A STORY ABOUT

HIM.

AND LATER THEY WROTE THE

BOOK, AND IT SOLD OVER A

MILLION COPIES.

BUT I MUST SAY THE PRODUCERS

OF THIS THING, IT IS

MASTERFUL.

IF THEY FOLLOW ALL THE WAY

THROUGH WITH WHAT THEY HAVE

DONE THERE, IT IS A

MASTERPIECE.

THEY ARE DOING A TREMENDOUS

JOB.

I AM SO MOVED.

Terry: IT IS A VERY,

VERY COMPELLING STORY.

THE BOOK IS WELL-WRITTEN.

COLTON HIMSELF WAS ON THIS

PROGRAM SEVERAL TIMES.

ONE MAN'S EXPERIENCE TRUMPS

ANOTHER MAN'S OPINION.

Pat: THE WAY THE

PRODUCERS HAVE DONE THIS, IT

IS SO DRAMATIC AND

WELL-DONE.

MY CONGRATULATIONS TO

WHOEVER IS DOING IT.

IT IS MAGNIFICENT.

IT WILL BE A MUST-SEE FOR

EASTER.

Terry: COMING UP, HE

HAS TRIED TO HIT BA PAY

DIRT IN SOUTHERN ALASKA AND

SOUTHERN AMERICA.

TODD HOFFMAN TALKS ABOUT

STRIKING IT RICH, LATER ON

TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

FIRST, FROM THE CITY OF

DAVID TO THE SEA OF GALILEE,

ONE INSIDER GIVES US AN

UP-CLOSE LOOK AT THE HOLY

LAND.

DON'T GO AWAY.

Pat: MY SON AND HIS

WIFE JUST GOT BACK FROM

ISRAEL.

THEY HAD A WONDERFUL TRIP.

THEY WENT TO NOT ONLY

ISRAEL, BUT JORDAN, AND THEY

TRAVELLED ALL AROUND IN THE

SEA OF TIBERIAS, AND STAYED

IN A HOTEL UP THERE, AND

THEY JUST LOVED IT AND THEY

HAD NO PROBLEM.

YOU ASK YOURSELF, WOULD YOU

WANT TO TAKE A TRIP TO

ISRAEL?

MANY PEOPLE, LIKE MY SON AND

HIS WIFE, THEY DIDN'T

DELAY.

THEY DIDN'T CANCEL.

THEY WENT.

OTHERS ARE AFRAID BECAUSE OF

WHAT THEY SEE ON THE NEWS.

STILL, MILLIONS OF TOURISTS

STILL COME TO ISRAEL EVERY

YEAR.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: MOST PEOPLE

ONLY SEE IMAGES OF THE

MIDDLE EAST IN TURMOIL.

BUT IN THE MIDST OF THIS

CHAOS, ISRAEL REMAINS

RELATIVELY CALM.

MILLIONS OF TOURISTS COME

EACH YEAR TO VISIT THE LAND

OF THE BIBLE.

IN FACT, ISRAEL HAS SET

RECORDS FOR THE NUMBER OF

TOURISTS IN THE PAST FEW

YEARS.

OVERSEEING THIS MINISTRY IS

OOZEI LANDOW, HE HAS SERVED

IN A NUMBER OF STRATEGIC

POSITIONS.

AS TOURISM MINISTER, LANDOW

HOPES ISRAEL WILL CONTINUE

TO BE A PRIME DESTINATION

FOR CHRISTIAN PILGRIMS FROM

AROUND THE WORLD.

Pat: MINISTER OF

TOURISM, OOZY LANDOW HAS

JOINED US FROM WASHINGTON.

THE LAST TIME WE WERE

TOGETHER WE WERE IN A

HELICOPTER, FLYING THAT LINE

OF THE FENCE BUILT FROM THE

WEST BANK.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN

TOURISM NOW?

WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO IS

FIRST OF ALL MAKE BELIEVE

THAT WHAT THEY SEE ON THE

NEWS, ON B.B.C., IS SIMPLY

TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT

REALITY LOOKS LIKE.

IN FACT, WHAT I'VE COME

ACROSS IS THAT WHEN I MEET

WITH TOURISTS WHO HAVE

ALREADY GONE TO ISRAEL.

THEY HAVE JUST BEEN CAUGHT

BY SURPRISE.

BECAUSE THEY, IN COMING TO

ISRAEL, SAW A COUNTRY WHICH

IS STABLE, WHICH IS SECURE,

WHICH IS CALM.

IN FACT, IN OUR COUNTRY, I

THINK LIKE NOT MANY OTHERS,

MOTHERS DO SEND THEIR KIDS

TO SCHOOL UNESCORTED.

BASICALLY I WOULD SAY THAT

THANK GOD CBN DIDN'T HAVE

ITS CREW THERE DURING THE

BATTLE OF DAVID AND GOLIATH

BECAUSE THEN THAT WOULD ZOOM

ON THE FOREHEAD OF GOLIATH

UNTIL TODAY, AND EVERYBODY

WOULD KNOW THAT GOLIATH WAS

THE VICTIM AND DAVID WAS THE

VILLAIN.

PLEASE COME TO ISRAEL.

WE ARE TOTALLY, TOTALLY

DIFFERENT.

AND WE ARE NOT JUST SAFE

WITH RESPECT TO OTHER

EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, BUT WE

ARE SAFE WITH REGARD TO

WESTERN COUNTRIES.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT AN IRON

DOME SECURITY SYSTEM THAT

HAS BEEN WORKING VERY WELL

AGAINST TERRORISTS.

DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT

THAT?

WELL, OF COURSE.

YOU KNOW, IT IS THIS KIND OF

MEANS THAT YOU DEVELOPED,

VIS-À-VIS, THE FUTURE

DEVELOPMENTS OF THE

TERRORISTS.

AND, OF COURSE, WE CARE FOR

THE SECURITY OF ALL OF OUR

CITIZENS.

AND, WELL, THE BATTLE THAT

WE ARE WAGING OVER THERE

AGAINST TERRORISTS, IT IS

NOT JUST FOR OUR OWN SAKE.

BECAUSE THOSE TERRORISTS OF

THE GLOBAL JIHAD, OF THE

al-QAEDA, AREN'T JUST

TARGETING US.

THEY WISH TO OVERCOME ISRAEL

ON THEIR WAY TO DEFEAT THE

WEST.

TO DEFEAT AMERICA.

THEY SEE AMERICA AS THE BIG,

THE GREAT SATAN.

ISRAEL IS A SMALL SATAN.

I BELIEVE THAT WHAT WE DO

OVER THERE, WE ARE DOING THE

JOB IN THE PROTECTION OF OUR

ENTIRE JUDEO CHRISTIAN

CIVILIZATION.

THAT THOSE TERRORISTS, BY

THE WAY, WHICH ARE SPONSORED

BY COUNTRIES LIKE IRAN, THEY

WISH TO REPLACE OUR BIBLICAL

VALUES BY SHARI'A LAW

VALUES.

AND I THINK IN THIS RESPECT

THAT RAISING OUR KIDS

TOGETHER TO BELIEVE IN

FREEDOM, THE FREEDOM OF

SPEECH, THE FREEDOM OF

RELIGION, AND ALL THOSE VERY

BASIC VALUES THAT COME FROM

THE BIBLE, IS ONE OF THE

MAJOR BONDS THAT BRINGS

TOGETHER THE AMERICAN NATION

TO THE JEWISH AND ISRAELI

NATION.

Pat: MY FRIEND,

NETANYAHU, SAID THE OTHER

DAY, AS LONG AS I'M PRIME

MINISTER, I CANNOT ALLOW A

NUCLEAR WEAPON TO EMPERIL

THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

DO YOU THINK ISRAEL MAY BE

FORCED TO MAKE A FIRST

STRIKE AGAINST SOME OF THOSE

IRANIAN FACILITIES?

THEY ARE OPERATIONAL

ISSUES, BUT WHAT IS

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER IS

THAT NETANYAHU SAID WE WILL

NOT MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR

IRAN TO BECOME NUCLEAR.

AND THIS IS NOT JUST FOR OUR

OWN SAKE.

AS MUCH AS IT IS A PROBLEM.

BECAUSE IF IRAN BECOMES

NUCLEAR, COUNTRIES LIKE

TURKEY, EGYPT, AND SAUDI

ARABIA, ARE GOING TO BECOME

NUCLEAR, TOO.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO ALLOW

THEMSELVES TO STAY OUT OF

IRAN BEING UNPROTECTED.

AND IF YOUR ARMY BECOMES

NUCLEAR, WE HAVE TAKE THIS

TO OUR ATTENTION THAT MANY

TERROR ORGANIZATIONS WHICH

ARE SPONSORED BY IRAN MIGHT

BE USING THOSE A-BOMBS IN A

CONTAINERSHIP WHICH IS GOING

TO DOCK IN A LOT OF THE

EUROPEAN AND NORTH AMERICAN

PORTS, OR USE A SUITCASE TO

BE BOMBED SOMEWHERE.

AND IF THEY'RE ALSO

DEVELOPING BALLISTIC

MISSILES WITH THE RANGE OF

REACHING THE UNITED STATES,

JUST NOTE WHAT KIND OF

SCENARIO MIGHT HAPPEN IN A

VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME IS

THAT AN IRANIAN PRESIDENT

WILL PICK UP THE PHONE TO AN

AMERICAN PRESIDENT AND SAY,

SIR, WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE

YOUR FORCES OUT OF THE

MIDDLE EAST.

WE ARE PREPARED TO PUT OUR

CAPITAL TO IRAN UNDER

THREAT.

ARE YOU, MR. PRESIDENT,

PREPARED TO BUT WASHINGTON

TO THREAT?

SO THIS IS GOING TO BE A

TOTALLY DIFFERENT WORLD.

AND THIS IS WHY IT IS SO, SO

IMPORTANT NOT TO GOAT TO A

DEAL WITH IRAN UNLESS THIS

DEAL GUARANTEES THE TOTAL

DISMANTELMENT OF IRAN FROM

ITS NUCLEAR MILITARY

PROGRAM.

Pat: WELL, I STAND WITH

YOU IN THAT REGARD.

HOW CAN WE HELP?

THE CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA

ARE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF

ISRAEL, AS YOU KNOW.

YOU WANT TOURISTS.

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

WELL, WE WANT, OF COURSE,

TOURISTS.

THE VERY PRIMITIVE REASON

WAS ALWAYS THAT IT IS SOME

KIND OF AN INCOME.

BUT WE IN ISRAEL SEE THAT

MUCH BEYOND THIS PRIMITIVE

KIND OF GOAL.

WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MANY

CHRISTIANS COMING TO ISRAEL

FIRST OF ALL TO SEE FOR

THEIR OWN EYES HOW THE

COUNTRY LOOKS LIKE.

IT IS A DIFFERENT COUNTRY

THAN CNN REPORTED OR B.B.C.

REPORTED THE COUNTRY.

IT IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF A

REALITY.

THE SECOND THING IS, OF

COURSE, UPON COMING BACK,

THEY WOULD ALL TELL

EVERYBODY, FRIENDS AND

FAMILY MEMBERS, WHAT THEY

SAW WITH NO CENSORSHIP, WITH

NO FILTERING, WHAT THE REAL

PICTURE THERE IS.

AND THEY WOULD SEE THAT

ISRAEL IS A REAL DEMOCRACY.

THAT PROTECTS THE RIGHTS OF

ALL MINORITIES, THAT

PROVIDES EVERYONE THE

ABILITY, THE OPTION TO

EXERCISE AND EXPERIENCE HIS

RELIGION, HIS WAY.

I THINK FOR THAT WE ARE

PROUD.

AND I SHOULD ADD, THIS ERA

OF INTERNET, THIS ERA OF

REACHING TO EACH OTHER

THROUGH THE KEYBOARD,

THROUGH THE SCREEN OF THE

TV, WE LOSE THIS HUMAN

TOUCH.

WE LOSE THIS EYE CONTACT AND

WARMTH OF THE EYE.

AND I BELIEVE THAT TOURISM

WOULD BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN

PEOPLE, BETWEEN LANGUAGES,

BETWEEN RELIGIONS, AND,

AGAIN, BRING RELATIONS

BETWEEN MEN AND BASE THEM ON

THE HUMAN DIRECT RELATION.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT.

AND, OF COURSE, HAVING AS

MANY CHRISTIANS COMING WOULD

MAKE THEM NOT ONLY TRACE THE

ROUTES AND WALK WHERE THE

PROPHETS WHO WROTE THE BIBLE

DID, BUT THEY WILL ALSO

ENJOY TIME AND SUPPORT

ISRAEL BY THAT SHOWING OF

SOLIDARITY.

Pat: I THINK YOU'VE GOT

THAT.

AND THEY'LL BE INSPIRED BY

WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY.

I APPRECIATE YOU BEING WITH

US.

A DEAR FRIEND FOR MANY

YEARS, AND A STRONG DEFENDER

OF LIBERTY AND FREEDOM AND

THE RIGHTS OF PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD.

OOZY LANDOW, WHO IS THE HEAD

OF TOURISM IN ISRAEL.

MY SON GOT BACK AND HE WAS

RAISING ABOUT THE NEW HOTEL,

AND YOU CAN'T BELIEVE HOW

THE RESTAURANTS AND THE

HOTELS AND THE FACILITIES --

HOW NICE IT IS.

Terry: IT IS VERY

GEARED TO TOURISTS HAVING A

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE.

BUT FOR BELIEVERS, ALSO,

READING THE BIBLE IS JUST

DIFFERENT ONCE YOU'VE WALKED

THE LAND THERE.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

HE HAD A GROUP WITH THEM,

AND ONE OF THE BUSINESSMEN

SAID, LOOK, WE'RE OVER HERE,

SHOULDN'T WE GET BAPTIZED.

THEY SAID THEY GOT A PLACE

IN THE JORDAN RIVER, NOT THE

ONE THAT EMPTIES OUT OF THE

SEA OF GALILEE, BUT CLOSE TO

WHERE JOSHUA CAME ACROSS,

AND THEY'VE GOT A NEW

BAPTIST AREA OVER THERE.

AND SO SOME OF THESE

PROMINENT BUSINESSMEN WERE

BAPTIZED IN THE RIVER

JORDAN.

YOU NEVER FORGET IT.

Terry: COMING UP, THE

REALTY STAR WITH A HAND OF

GOLD.

TODD HOFFMAN JOINS US LIVE,

AND THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

IN 2010, THE DISCOVERY

CHANNEL STRUCK GOLD WITH A

NEW REALITY SHOW.

THE PROGRAM STAKED ITS CLAIM

ON FRIDAY NIGHTS AND HAS

BECOME THE MOST WATCHED

CABLE PROGRAM OF THAT

NIGHT.

IT IS CALLED "GOLD RUSH,"

AND IT FOLLOWS TODD HOFFMAN

AND THE CREWS FROM THREE

MINING COMPANIES AS THEY PAN

FOR GOLD IN THE YUKON.

NOW KNEE HAV THEY HAVE

MOVED TO SOUTH AMERICA AND

THEY'VE GOT SOME SPINOFFS

FROM THAT ONE.

BUT VIEWERS LEARNED THAT

SITTING ON A GOLD MINE ISN'T

QUITE WHAT YOU MIGHT THINK.

Reporter: TODD HOFFMAN

IS THE GOLD MINING BUS ON

"GOLD RUSH."

WHEN TODD'S AVIATION

BUSINESS DECLINED IN 2008,

HE PUT TOGETHER A TEAM OF

HIS UNEMPLOYED BUDDIES,

INCLUDING THIS FATHER, JACK,

AND HEADED FOR ALASKA, IN

SEARCH OF GOLD.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET

PAID UNTIL WE DIG THE GOLD

OUT OF THE GROUND.

Reporter: THE SHOW IS

NOW IN ITS FOURTH SEASON,

AND BRINGS IN OVER FIVE

MILLION VIEWERS.

Pat: WELL, HE STRUCK

GOLD MINING FOR VIEWERS.

I DON'T KNOW HOW THE OUNCES

ARE.

HE COUNTS THEM ONE AT A

TIME.

TODD HOFFMAN IS WITH US

HERE.

IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

I APPRECIATE IT.

Pat: YOU COME THROUGH

AS TOUGH AND HARD-NOSED, BUT

YOU'VE GOT EVERYTHING ON THE

LINE.

IT'S REALLY TRUE, YOU STAKED

EVERYTHING ON IT?

YEAH, YOU DO.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU SHOOT 250

HOURS OF FOOTAGE TO GET 42

MINUTES OF THE TV SHOW.

SO YOU DON'T GET EXACTLY TO

PICK AND CHOOSE.

IT'S NOT MY JOB.

THEY PICK CERTAIN THINGS,

LIKE TENSE SITUATIONS WHERE

THINGS ARE ROUGH.

SO THEY PICK A LOT OF THE

ACTION.

AND SOMETIMES YOU COME

ACROSS THAT YOU'RE A TOUGH

GUY OR YOUR A BAD GUY.

BUT IT IS REALLY NOT THE

CASE.

Pat: OKAY.

I'M SURE NOT.

BUT YOU'RE COMING ACROSS A

BRIDGE DOWN THERE IN SOUTH

AMERICA, AND WE'RE SHOWING

IT, AND YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE

CROSSED THE BRIDGE.

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

YEAH.

THAT BRIDGE WAS IN SUCH BAD

SHAPE THAT LITERALLY A LOT

OF THE LOCALS WOULD SIT

THERE AND WATCH PEOPLE TO

SEE -- IT WAS LIKE A

SPORT -- TO SEE WHO WAS

GOING TO MAKE IT ACROSS THE

BRIDGE.

WHAT REALLY TICKED ME OFF IS

THERE WAS MINIVANS FULL OF

LITTLE KIDS AND WOMEN, AND

THEY WERE PICKING THEIR WAY

THROUGH THIS BRIDGE, AND

THERE IS HOLES IN THE

BRIDGE.

SO AT ONE TIME SOME OF THE

WHEELS -- LIKE ONE OF THE

WHEELS WOULDN'T BE TOUCHING

ANYTHING.

IT WAS REALLY SCARY.

I GOT THEM ALL TOGETHER AND

WE LITERALLY REBUILT THAT

BRIDGE.

Pat: WELL, IT WAS

TREMENDOUS.

HAVE YOU EVER MADE ANY MONEY

DOING THAT?

LAST YEAR I DID PRETTY

WELL, BUT I'M LOOKING FOR

THE BIG HIT, THE BIG SCORE.

EITHER A BIG DIAMOND OR BIG

GOLD, YOU KNOW.

WHEN YOU HAVE SEVERAL GUYS

ON YOUR TEAM, IF YOU WANT TO

TRY TO GET EACH MEMBER OF

YOUR TEAM SOME GOLD, IT

TAKES AN IMMENSE AMOUNT OF

GOLD.

LAST YEAR WE DID GOOD.

WE DUG UP 1.2 MILLION IN

GOLD LAST YEAR.

THIS YEAR, YOU KNOW, I'M IN

SOUTH AMERICA, AND I'M

LOOKING FOR THE BIG HIT.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE I'M

THROWING A HAIL MARY.

AND THE CHANCES ARE NOT

GOOD.

Pat: ARE YOUR TEAMS

STILL DIGGING WHILE WE'RE

TALKING?

NO, WE'RE BACK NOW.

WE CAME HOME.

WE WERE AWAY FROM OUR

FAMILIES.

FAMILIES FOR US IS A BIG

DEAL.

WE LOVE OUR KIDS AND OUR

FAMILIES.

MY PARENTS HAVE BEEN MARRIED

FOREVER.

DAVE HAS BEEN MARRIED

FOREVER.

I'M ALMOST AT 20 YEARS OF

MARRIAGE.

AND IT IS LIKE AT SOME POINT

YOU'VE GOT TO GET HOME AND

SEE THE KIDS.

Pat: BUT YOU'RE IN

JEOPARDY EVERY DAY.

THIS ISN'T JUST A PLAY

TIME.

YOU COULD LOSE IT ALL ON A

DEAL.

IS THAT RIGHT?

YOU CAN.

AND THE ULTIMATE PRICE IS

OBVIOUSLY TO LOSE YOUR

LIFE.

AND I HAD A COUPLE GUYS TRY

TO ROB ME DOWN THERE.

IT IS NOT ON CAMERA, BUT

THEY WERE CHASING ME AROUND

TOWN.

WE HAD A CAR CHASE.

THE COPS DID CATCH THEM.

THEY HAD A GUN, A LOADED

GUN.

THEY'RE NOT PLAYING AROUND

IN SOUTH AMERICA.

THIS IS LIFE OR DEATH.

AND I TOLD MY GUYS RIGHT UP

FRONT, I SAID, HEY, YOU NEED

TO MAKE THIS DECISION ON

YOUR OWN.

IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO US

DOWN THERE, I DON'T WANT

THAT ON MY HEAD.

IT'S GOING TO BE YOUR

DECISION.

AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE THAT.

YOU NEED TO PRAY ABOUT IT.

YOU NEED TO MAKE IT WITH

YOUR FAMILY.

BECAUSE THERE IS A CHANCE

YOU COULD LOSE YOUR LIFE

DOWN THERE.

Pat: WELL, THERE IS NO

QUESTION ABOUT IT.

I SEE PERIL EVERY TIME I

TURN AROUND.

WHO PRODUCES THIS THING?

IT IS BRILLIANT.

IT REALLY IS WELL-DONE.

MY WHOLE CREW IS MAINLY

FROM LONDON, ENGLAND.

AND I CREATED THE SHOW.

TOP SHOW FRIDAY NIGHTS.

Pat: I'M FASCINATED.

I MUST CONFESS, I'VE HAD A

COUPLE OF THESE THINGS, ONE

IN COLOMBIA AND ONE IN

AFRICA.

SO I SUFFER WITH YOU.

I KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

IT'S LIKE -- IT'S REALITY.

THERE ARE SOME REALLY TOUGH

THINGS COMING IN THE SHOW.

SOME OF THE SHOWS I WON'T

EVEN WATCH BECAUSE I DON'T

WANT TO LIVE THEM AGAIN.

BUT IT'S TOUGH.

IT WOULD BE EASY FOR ME TO

GO AND TAKE SOME GOLD AND

THROW IT IN MY FUSS BOX AND

STUFF LIKE THAT.

BUT WE KEEP IT REAL.

Pat: YOU ACTUALLY SPLIT

THE TAKE WITH YOUR TEAM?

YEAH.

Pat: THEY'RE NOT ON

SALARY OR SOMETHING?

NO.

OBVIOUSLY, THE SHOW KIND OF

SLOWS YOU DOWN, AND MY

GUYS -- THEY DO PAY US SOME

MONEY.

BUT THE MAIN THING WE'RE

GOING FOR IS GOLD.

AND THE MAIN THING IS THAT

WE'RE LOOKING FOR ENOUGH

GOLD TO TAKE AND PARCEL IT

OUT TO MY GUYS.

I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO GIVE

MY GUYS LAST YEAR A NICE

LITTLE CHUNK OF GOLD.

AND MOST OF THEM HAVE IT

STILL.

IF THEY'RE SMART, THEY'LL

KEEP IT.

Pat: THE PRICE WENT

DOWN ABOUT A THIRD.

IT DID.

BUT YOU SEE WHAT IS GOING ON

IN THE ECONOMY.

YOU SEE WHAT IS GOING ON

WITH OBAMACARE AND WHAT'S

GOING ON.

IN THE END, I MEAN, I STILL

BELIEVE IN GOLD.

I HATE TO SAY IT.

I'M A GOLD FAN, AND I TRY TO

GET AS MUCH OF THE ACTUAL

METAL IN MY HAND AS I CAN.

Pat: YOU WENT TO BIBLE

SCHOOL?

I DID.

I DID A YEAR OF BIBLE

SCHOOL.

AND I WENT TO WILLIAM JESSOP

UNIVERSITY, AND ONE YEAR AT

CHRISTIAN COLLEGE.

Pat: WERE YOU STUDYING

TO BE A MINISTER?

YEAH.

ACTUALLY, MY DEGREE -- I'M

NOT QUITE DONE WITH IT

YET -- I'D LIKE TO TALK TO

YOU ABOUT IT, YOUR ONLINE

SCHOOL.

I'M ONE TERM AWAY.

I'M THAT GUY THAT ALMOST GOT

THERE.

BUT IT IS IN YOUTH

MINISTRY.

I LOVE KIDS.

I WAS ACTUALLY A HIGH SCHOOL

TEACHER FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

I TAUGHT AN ELECTIVE ON

INTERNET BUSINESS.

YEAH, I DO LOVE KIDS.

BUT HAVING SAID THAT, I'M

NOT POSTER BOY FOR THE

FAITH.

I'M A WORK IN PROGRESS.

YOU KNOW, SO I REALLY DO --

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK, OH,

WOW, WHAT'S IT LIKE BEING A

TV STAR, WHATEVER?

IT DOESN'T MATTER SO MUCH TO

ME.

BUT IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO

SHARE, YOU KNOW, MY

CONSERVATIVE VALUES AND MY

FAITH AND THE WAY THAT I

INTERACT WITH MY FAMILY.

AND THOSE THINGS ARE

IMPORTANT TO ME.

THE FAME AND ALL OF THAT

BOLOGNA, AS YOU KNOW, FAMOUS

IS FLEETING.

IT'S BOLOGNA, PAT, RIGHT?

Pat: YOU'RE NO BETTER

THAN YESTERDAY'S RATINGS.

I UNDERSTAND.

BOY, I WISH YOU THE BEST.

IT IS A FUN SHOW, AND ITS

CALLED "GOLD RUSH," AND IT'S

ON THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL.

THESE NEXT EPISODES ARE DOWN

IN GIANA?

GUYANA, SOUTH AMERICA,

DEEP IN THE JUNGLE.

WE ACTUALLY BUILT A COMPOUND

IN THE JUNGLE.

Pat: DO YOU GUYS HAVE

ANY GEOLOGISTS, WHO GO IN

THERE AND DO DRILLING --

YOU REALLY CAN'T DRILL IN

THE JUNGLE.

YOU'VE KIND OF GOT TO GO ON

REPORTS, AND THINGS LIKE

THAT, AND HISTORY IN THE

AREA.

IT IS HARD TO DRILL IN MUD

AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

Pat: SURE.

SO YOU'VE GOT TO GO IN

THERE, AND YOU LOOK AT THE

CREEKS AND YOU'VE GOT TO DO

THE BEST STUDIES YOU CAN.

BUT, LET ME TELL YOU, THE

JUNGLE IS A MYSTERY.

THERE ARE DIAMONDS IN THERE,

TOO.

WE DO START TO GET INTO

DIAMONDS.

AND SO IT IS JUST THE

ADVENTURE.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO MINE THE

JUNGLE.

AND IT'S JUST AN

UNBELIEVABLE EXPERIENCE.

Pat: IF GUYANA DOESN'T

WORK OUT, I CAN GIVE YOU A

COUPLE OF PROSPECTS IN

AFRICA.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT,

PAT.

Pat: AS MANY CROOKS AND

THIEVES AS YOU'VE GOTTEN IN

SOUTH AMERICA, IT'S

DOUBLED.

NO PROBLEM.

TODD, IT IS GREAT TO SEE

YOU.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS

A FUN SHOW AND IT'S FOR

REAL.

THIS IS REAL.

AND YOU COULD LOSE YOUR

LIFE.

YOU COULD LOSE YOUR FORTUNE,

LOSE EVERYTHING.

LOSE YOUR MIND.

Pat: LOSE YOUR MIND.

LOSE YOUR WIFE IF YOU

DON'T COME HOME.

Pat: LET'S HOPE THE

LORD WILL KEEP YOU SAFE.

CONGRATULATIONS.

I WANT TO TELL YOU THANK

YOU.

I GO IN YOUR HALLWAY AND I

LOOK AT THE HISTORY, AND I

LOOK AT ALL OF THE WORK

YOU'VE DONE OVER ALL OF THE

YEARS.

I WANT TO TELL YOU THANK

YOU, SIR.

Pat: IT'S BEEN A GREAT

TRIP.

OVER 50 YEARS.

TODD HOFFMAN, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

IT IS A GREAT SHOW, "GOLD

RUSH," ON FRIDAY NIGHT.

IT MAKES VERY INTERESTING

WATCHING.

AND NOW YOU'VE SEEN THE MAN

WHO IS ON THERE.

AND HE COMES THROUGH TOUGH

AND MEAN AND HE HAS GOT THAT

CREW, AND THEY'RE ALL

MALCONTENT, AND HE HOLDS

THEM TOGETHER, AND

APPARENTLY IT IS REAL.

TODD HOFFMAN.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

WE'RE GOING TO ROLL OUT THE

RED CARPET FOR A

STAR-STUDDED EVENT LIKE NO

OTHER.

WE'RE GOING BEHIND THE

SCENES FOR A "SUPERBOOK"

MOVIE NIGHT, SO DON'T GO

AWAY.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700

CLUB."

THE GOVERNOR OF HAWAII HAS

SIGNED A BILL LEGALIZING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

THE STATE LEGISLATURE PASSED

THE MARRIAGE BILL AFTER THE

GOVERNOR CALLED A SPECIAL

SESSION.

BUT A REPUBLICAN LAW MAKER

HAS PROMISED TO CHALLENGE

THE NEW LAW.

THE MEASURE GOES INTO EFFECT

DECEMBER 2nd.

ANOTHER 14 STATES AND THE

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ALREADY

ALLOW SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

A RUTGERS UNIVERSITY BUS

DRIVER SAYS HE LOST HIS JOB

AFTER PRAYING FOR A DISABLED

STUDENT.

THE BUS COMPANY SAYS STAN

McNEILL WAS GIVEN THE

OPTION TO RESIGN BECAUSE OF

AN UNSPECIFIED SAFETY

VIOLATION, BUT McNEILL

SAYS THE REASON HE WAS GIVEN

WAS THAT HE PRAYED FOR THE

STUDENT.

McNEILL CLAIMS THE COMPANY

TOLD HIM THEY DIDN'T WANT TO

PUT IT ON RECORD THEY FIRED

HIM, SO HE WAS FORCED TO

STEP DOWN.

STUDENTS HAVE ALREADY TAKEN

TO SOCIAL MEDIA TO ASK THE

COMPANY TO BRING McNEILL

BACK.

AN ONLINE PETITION HAD MORE

THAN 5500 SIGNATURES BY

THURSDAY MORNING.

AND 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, WITH EVERY

EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK," THE

STORIES OF THE BIBLE COME TO

LIFE ON THE SILVER SCREEN.

RECENTLY KIDS WHO WENT TO A

MOVIE NIGHT AT LONDON

BAPTIST CHURCH GOT AN EXTRA

TREAT BECAUSE THEY GOT TO

SEE SOME CHARACTERS FROM

"SUPERBOOK" COMING TO LIFE

IN FRONT OF THEIR VERY

EYES.

Reporter: IT IS A

PACKED HOUSE AT LONDON

BRIDGE BAPTIST CHURCH IN

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA.

THAT'S BECAUSE IT IS MOVIE

NIGHT.

EVERYONE HAS COME TO WATCH

THEIR FAVORITE BIBLE

ANIMATED SERIES,

"SUPERBOOK."

IT IS CREATIVE, AND IT

TELLS YOU ABOUT GOD.

IT'S A GOOD MOVIE.

WE ALWAYS SAY, GARBAGE

IN, GARBAGE OUT.

THERE IS NO GARBAGE IN THESE

MOVIES.

IT IS THE WORD OF GOD.

IT BRINGS THE WORD OF GOD TO

LIFE.

THE CONCEPT OF SIN,

REDEMPTION, CREATION, ARE

ALL EXPLAINED IN A WAY THAT

CHILDREN UNDERSTAND IT.

Reporter: MANY OF THE

KIDS WERE ALREADY

"SUPERBOOK" FANS.

THEY LOVE THE CHARACTERS

CHRIS AND JOY, BUT THERE IS

ONE THAT IS EVERYBODY'S

FAVORITE.

GIZMO.

GIZMO.

GIZMO.

HE IS A FUNNY ROBOT, AND

HE'S FUNNY.

Reporter: THEN THEY

LEARNED THEY HAD A SPECIAL

GUEST THA, AND IT WAS THEIR

FAVORITE ROBOT.

GIZMO!

Reporter: THE AUDIENCE

WAS CAPTIVATED.

THEY WATCHED THREE

EPISODES.

"IN THE BEGINNING," "THE

FIRST CHRISTMAS,"

CHRISTMAS," "THE LAST

SUPPER."

THESE FAMILIES KNOW WHAT

MANY OTHERS DO, "SUPERBOOK"

IS NOT JUST FUN

ENTERTAINMENT, IT IS A WAY

FOR KIDS TO LEARN ABOUT THE

BIBLE.

IT IS BASED ON TRUTH.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING MADE

UP.

IT ACTUALLY PUT FAITH TO

MOSES, PUT FAITH TO ADAM AND

EVE.

THEY CAN IDENTIFY WITH THAT

THEY ARE REAL PEOPLE.

THAT'S WHY I LIKE IT FOR MY

CHILDREN, AND ALSO FOR MY

CHILDREN IN MY CLASSROOM.

I THINK IT IS REALLY GOOD

FOR KIDS BECAUSE IT IS LIKE

FROM THE BIBLE, BUT IN A

KID'S VERSION.

Terry: YOU CAN SEE ON

THEIR FACES HOW MUCH THEY

ARE ENJOYING THAT.

YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN

"SUPERBOOK" PARTY RIGHT IN

YOUR LIVING ROOM.

FOR JUST $25, YOU CAN JOIN

THE "SUPERBOOK" D.V.D.

CLUB.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DO

THAT, EVERY FOUR TO SIX

WEEKS, WE'RE GOING TO SEND

YOU THREE COPIES OF EVERY

NEW EPISODE AS SOON AS

THEY'RE RELEASED.

SO YOU CAN KEEP ONE AND THEN

SHARE THE OTHERS WITH YOUR

CHURCH OR FRIENDS.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700, OR YOU

CAN LOG ON TO OUR WEBSITE

AT CBN.COM.

BUT THESE CONTINUE TO COME

OUT.

THE WHOLE BIBLE IS GOING TO

BE DONE.

THIS IS GOING TO IMPACT THE

WORLD.

IT IS BEING TRANSLATED INTO

MORE LANGUAGES THAN I COULD

TELL YOU.

Pat: IT IS GOING TO

SWEEP THE WORLD.

IT'S FABULOUS.

WE DID THAT FIRST SERIES

OVER IN JAPAN YEARS AGO, AND

IT HAD A HUGE AUDIENCE AND

SCORED ALL OVER THE WORLD.

NUMBER ONE IN BRITAIN ON

SUNDAY MORNING, FOR

EXAMPLE.

HONG KONG, NUMBER ONE.

AND THIS IS GOING TO BE EVEN

BIGGER.

Terry: WONDERFULLY,

WONDERFULLY DONE.

Pat: IT IS GOING TO BE

A BIG DEAL.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

TACKLE SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS COMING UP.

SUSAN SAYS, "MY BROTHER WAS

MURDERED, AND I FIND IT HARD

TO FORGIVE THE PERSON WHO

KILLED HIM.

DOES GOD EXPECT ME TO

FORGIVE UNTIL I LOVE THIS

GUY?"

STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S ANSWERS

WHEN WE "BRING IT ON," AFTER

THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

SOME TIME TO ANSWER E-MAIL

QUESTIONS YOU SENT US, SO

LET'S "BRING IT ON."

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM SUSAN,

WHO SAYS, "MY BROTHER WAS

MURDERED, AND I FIND IT HARD

TO FORGIVE THE PERSON WHO

KILLED HIM.

TO WHAT EXTENT DO I NEED TO

FORGIVE HIS MURDERER.

SOMETIMES MY ANGER IS SO

BIG, AND OTHER TIMES IT

FEELS MORE MANAGEABLE.

DOES GOD EXPECT ME TO

FORGIVE UNTIL I LOVE THIS

GUY?"

Pat: SUSAN, THE BIBLE

SAYS LOVE YOUR ENEMIES,

DESPITE THEY USE YOU AND

PERSECUTE YOU.

IT'S HARD.

BUT THE WAY TO DO IT IS TO

START PRAYING FOR GOD TO

BLESS THEM.

INSTEAD OF SAYING, KEEP ME

FROM HATING HIM, START

SAYING GOD, I WANT YOU TO

BLESS HIM.

REMEMBER, YOUR SINS -- YOUR

SINS, SUSAN, NAILED THE

NAILS INTO THE HANDS OF

JESUS CHRIST.

MY SIN, YOUR SIN, PUT HIM ON

THE CROSS.

AND JESUS SAID, FORGIVE

THEM.

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

IF GOD CAN FORGIVE, AND IF

JESUS CAN FORGIVE THOSE WHO

NAILED HIM TO THE CROSS AND

BEAT HIM, THEN YOU AND I CAN

CERTAINLY FORGIVE THOSE WHO

HURT US.

IN YOUR CASE, THEY DIDN'T

HURT YOU.

THEY HURT YOUR BROTHER.

YOU JUST HAVE TO.

WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO TO HATE

SOMEBODY.

ALL IT DOES IS HURT YOU.

IT DOESN'T HURT THEM.

SO WHY HURT YOURSELF.

BUT UNTIL THAT IS FREED,

YOU'LL BE -- IT WILL BE LIKE

YOU HAVING ACID IN YOUR

SOUL, AND YOU DON'T NEED

THAT.

IT WILL CORRODE YOU.

BUT START PRAYING.

SAY, GOD, I PRAY THAT YOU'LL

BLESS HIM.

I PRAY THAT THE ONE WHO

KILLED MY BROTHER WILL FIND

JESUS.

I PRAY THEY WILL KNOW THE

SAME FAITH I KNOW.

AND GET YOU IN A DIFFERENT

MODE.

Terry: I KNOW YOU DON'T

LIKE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS

FROM YOUNGER PEOPLE, BUT

THIS IS FROM CASSIDY, WHO IS

13, AND SHE SAYS, "I WAS

WONDERING IF THERE ARE BEDS

IN HEAVEN.

I HEARD THE VERSE IN MY

FATHER'S HOUSE, THERE ARE

MANY MANSIONS, BUT DO THEY

HAVE BEDS?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS, HE

WHO WATCHES ISRAEL NEITHER

SLEEPS OR SLUM BERS.

WHEN YOU'RE AN ANGEL, YOU

DON'T NEED TO REST.

BODIES GET WORN OUT, BUT

ANGELS DON'T NEED THAT.

THEY ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS.

GOD DOESN'T SLEEP, AND I

DON'T THINK ANGELS SLEEP.

SO ARE THERE BEDS IN

HEAVEN?

I DON'T THINK WE'LL NEED TO

SLEEP, BUT I DON'T KNOW.

THE REAL TRANSLATION OF THAT

VERSE IS "IN MY FATHER'S

HOUSE ARE MANY DWELLING

PLACES."

IT'S NOT MANSIONS; IT'S

DWELLING PLACES.

THERE ARE PLACES FOR US.

IF SITTING DOWN OR LYING

DOWN IS PART OF IT, THAT'S

COOL.

I REALLY WOULDN'T WORRY

ABOUT IT TOO MUCH.

JUST KNOW THAT GOD IS GOING

TO LOOK AFTER YOU.

IT WILL BE SO GOOD YOU CAN'T

BELIEVE IT.

Terry: MAZY SAYS, "I

HEARD YOU SAY THE RAPTURE

HAPPENS AFTER THE SEVEN-YEAR

TRIBULATION.

CAN PEOPLE GET SAVED DURING

THAT, OR IS IT SET IN

STONE?"

Pat: DURING THE

MILLENNIUM, IT WILL BE THE

LAST PERIOD.

AND DURING THAT PERIOD,

THERE IS NO REASON -- IT IS

NOT FINAL, BUT THEN IT IS

ALL OVER.

I WOULD THINK -- GOD IS A

GOD OF INFINITE MERCY, AND

HE WOULD THAT EVERYBODY

WOULD COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE

OF THE TRUTH.

SO THE ANSWER IS YES.

Terry: ACCURACY

SAYS, "I KNOW FASTING IS

BIBLICAL, AND JESUS SAID

ONLY CERTAIN THINGS CAN COME

OUT BY FASTING AND PRAYER.

BUT I HAVE A PROBLEM.

I'M A DIABETIC AND I CAN'T

FAST.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: FIRST OF ALL, THE

SCRIPTURE, THE BETTER --

Terry: THE

TRANSLATION --

Pat: WELL, NOT THE

TRANSLATION, BUT THE BETTER

TEXT IS BETTER PRAYER THAN

FASTING.

THAT'S THE BETTER TEXT OF

THAT SCRIPTURE.

IF YOU'VE GOT DIABETES, GOD

DOESN'T WANT YOU TO GO INTO

SOME DIABETIC SHOCK BECAUSE

YOU'RE NOT EATING FOOD.

THERE ARE VARIOUS WAYS TO

FAST --

Terry: YOU CAN FAST TO

A PLEASURE, LIKE

TELEVISION.

Pat: IN DANIEL, THEY

HAD SOMETHING CALLED NO

PLEASANT BREAD.

HE DIDN'T EAT DESSERT.

BUT WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS

DENYING YOURSELF A

LEGITIMATE ACTIVITY SO THAT

YOU WILL LET YOUR SOUL GET

CLOSER TO GOD.

YOU COULD MOSSES OR

SOMETHING.

THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS

YOU CAN DO.

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR NOW.

BUT UP NEXT, WE WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU AND YOUR NEEDS.

SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

Terry: TO BUILD YOUR

FAITH, HERE IS AN ANSWER TO

PRAYER, BEFORE WE PRAY FOR

YOU.

FOR TWO YEARS, PRISCILLA OF

KANSAS HAD CONSTANT TEARING

IN HER RIGHT EYE.

HER DOCTOR PRESCRIBED

MEDICAL DROPS, IT DIDN'T

HELP.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, PAT, YOU

SAID, YOUR EYES ARE TEARING

ALL THE TIME, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT.

SHE SHOUTED, THAT'S ME, AND

IMMEDIATELY THE TEARING

STOPPED AND HAS NEVER

RETURNED.

Pat: AND TERRY, THIS

HISTOR HAD TO DO WITH YOU.

FLORENCE OF CALIFORNIA

SUFFERED TERRIBLE ACID

REFLUX.

AND SHE WAS WATCHING, AND

SHE SAID, PLEASE GIVE THE

HOST A WORD CONCERNING ME.

AND IMMEDIATELY YOU SAID,

YOU HAVE SOME EXTREME ACID

REFLUX, AND YOU HAVE HAD IT

FOR A LONG TIME, AND

FLORENCE SAID, IT'S ME.

AND ALL OF THE SYMPTOMS HAVE

BEEN GONE.

IT'S TIME TO PRAY.

WHAT A FUN PROGRAM.

Terry: IT WAS A BIG

VARIETY TODAY.

Pat: THE TOURISM

MINISTER OF ISRAEL, THE GOLD

RUSH MAN FROM DISCOVERY.

Terry: AND BEDS IN

HEAVEN.

Pat: AND BEDS IN

HEAVEN.

WE'VE GOT IT ALL.

LORD, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU THAT YOU LOVE US.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU'RE

TOUCHING PEOPLE'S LIVES.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, FATHER!

AND WE PRAY RIGHT NOW IN THE

NAME OF JESUS THAT YOU MIGHT

REACH OUT AND HEAL PEOPLE,

DELIVER THEM AND SET THEM

FREE FROM FEAR AND ANXIETY

AND BLESS THEIR FAMILIES.

THANK YOU, LORD.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEBODY, YOU HAVE SOME KIND

OF A REFLEX THAT HAPPENS IN

YOUR THROAT WHEN YOU'RE

EATING AND SWALLOWING.

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE THE

CHOKING ANYMORE.

AND SOMEONE, YOU HAVE SOME

KIND OF FUNGAL CONDITION

THAT IS RUINING YOUR NAILS,

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

Pat: YOU'RE KNEE IS

CLICKING.

IT CLICKS IN AND OUT.

GOD IS TIGHTENING UP THAT

MENISCUS, AND YOU'RE GOING

TO HAVE A CREATIVE MIRACLE

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

TOUCH YOUR KNEE IN HIS

NAME.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, A MOTHER AND HER

SON SURVIVE AN F-5 TORNADO

ARMED WITH ONLY THE POWER OF

PRAYER.

AND TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 2 KINGS:

"THUS SAYS THE LORD, I HAVE

HERHEARD YOUR PRAYER, I

HAVE SEEN YOUR TEARS, SURELY

I WILL HEAL YOU."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
