AS AMERICANS LOSE THEIR

HEALTH INSURANCE, ONE EXPERT

WARNS THE WORST IS YET TO

COME.

PLUS, ON THE COURT WITH THE

HEAD COACH OF THE WASHINGTON

HUSKIES.

IT NEVER STOPS.

YOU CAN NEVER BE TOTALLY

SATISFIED.

AND DO YOU HAVE A SPOILED

CHILD?

FIND OUT HOW TO CLEAN HOUSE

ON TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE HAVE WITH US A PERSON WHO

HAS DONE SOMETHING FEW

CONGRESSMEN HAVE EVER DONE.

SHE READ EVERY LINE IN THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT,

OBAMACARE, AND SHE IS AN

EXPERT, AND SHE IS GOING TO

TELL US ABOUT WHAT IT IS

GOING TO DO TO YOU, OKAY?

Wendy: HOW LONG DID

THAT TAKE?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

I MEAN, IT'S LIKE A LIFE

CALLING, I SUPPOSE.

SHE IS AN EXPERT, AND I

THINK YOU'RE EYES WILL BE

OPENED.

ARE YOU READY TO HAVE YOUR

EYES OPENED?

Wendy: YES.

WE NEED TO.

Pat: WELL, GOING

INTERNATIONALLY, WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN IF THE NATION OF IRAN

GETS A NUCLEAR BOMB?

WELL, FOR ISRAEL, THAT'S NOT

JUST A HYPOTHETICAL.

IT IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND

DEATH.

Wendy: TODAY

INTERNATIONAL POWERS ARE

RESUMING THEIR TALKS WITH

IRAN OVER ITS NUCLEAR

PROGRAM, AND ISRAEL WARNS

THAT SUCH A WEAPON COULD BE

A THREAT TO THE UNITED

STATES AS WELL.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY FROM JERUSALEM.

Reporter: ISRAEL GOT A

BOOST THIS WEEK DURING A

THREE-DAY VISIT BY FRENCH

PRESIDENT FRANCOIS

HOLLANDE.

HE STOPPED THE LAST ROUND OF

TALKS IN GENEVA WHEN IT

REFUSED IRAN'S TERMMENT

TERM.

IN THE A SPEECH, HOLLANDE

SAID HE WOULD HOLD THE LINE

ON SANCTIONS.

IT IS NOW FOR IRAN TO

RESPOND, NOT JUST WITH

WORDS, BUT WITH CONCRETE

MEASURES THAT ARE

VERIFIABLE.

AND I AFFIRM HERE THAT

SANCTIONS WILL BE MAINTAINED

UNTIL IRAN HAS DEFINITELY

REMOVED ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM.

Reporter: HOLLANDE'S

SPEECH WAS GOOD NEWS FOR

ISRAELI LEADERS WHO FEEL AN

INTERIM AGREEMENT WOULD LET

IRAN OFF THE SANCTIONS

HOOK.

THIS IS ONE OF OUR

CONCERNS.

SINCE THE INTERIM AGREEMENT

IS SO GOOD FOR IRAN AND SO

CONVENIENT FOR THE IRANIANS,

THEY ARE GIVING ENTIRELY

NOTHING AND GETTING A LOT OF

DEDUCTIONS ON THE SANCTIONS,

AND THIS COULD BE A NUCLEAR

COUNTRY.

THIS IS THE MOST

FRIGHTENING SITUATION OF ALL

WE'RE DEALING WITH.

Reporter: MICHELE

BACHMANN TOLD CBN NEWS IT IS

THE WRONG TIME TO GO LIGHT

ON THE SANCTIONS.

WE'VE GOT IRAN EXACTLY

WHERE THEY'RE ABOUT TO HAVE

THEIR BACK BROKEN, AND

THEY'RE DOWN ON THEIR KNEES,

AND JUST WHEN THEY'RE DOWN

ON THEIR KNEES, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO PULL

ALL OF THE PRESSURE BACK AND

GIVE IRAN THE SPACE THEY

NEED, IN ADDITION TO THE

LUXURY OF TIME, TO FINISH

THEIR PROJECT OF DEVELOPING

A NUCLEAR WEAPON.

Reporter: BACHMANN

BELIEVES IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM AND ITS LEADERS WILL

THREATEN THE WEST.

THEY WILL NOT ONLY USE IT

AGAINST ISRAEL, THEY WILL

USE IT AGAINST EUROPE.

THEY WILL USE A NUCLEAR

WEAPON AGAINST THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

DON'T THINK FOR A MOMENT

THAT THEY WON'T.

THEY WILL.

THEY SEEK THE ELIMINATION OF

THE UNITED STATES JUST AS

SURELY AS THEY SEEK THE

ELIMINATION OF THE JEWISH

STATE OF ISRAEL.

Reporter: BUT ISRAEL IS

NOT THE ONLY CONCERNED

COUNTRY IN THE REGION.

THE GULF STATES JUST ACROSS

THE PERSIAN GULF, AND

ESPECIALLY SAUDI ARABIA, SEE

IRAN AS ISRAEL DOES.

I THINK THE EVIDENCE IS

UNDENIABLE THAT THE ISRAELI

AND SAUDI POSITIONS,

VIS-A-VIS IRAN, AND THE NEED

TO PREVENT A NUCLEAR IRAN,

AND THE DEEP CONCERNS

REGARDING THE CURRENT

DIRECTION OF EVENTS IN

GENEVA AND NEGOTIATIONS --

THE EVIDENCE OF THAT IS

UNMISTAKABLE.

Reporter: IN THE

MEANTIME, ISRAEL IS

CAMPAIGNING AGAINST ANY

AGREEMENT THAT WOULD ALLOW

IRAN TO GET A NUCLEAR BOMB.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU WILL BE

IN MOSCOW THIS WEEK TO LOBBY

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR

PUTIN.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: EXCELLENT, CHRIS.

I APPRECIATE THE WORD FROM

MICHELE BACHMANN, TOO.

I BELIEVE THAT CONGRESS GETS

IT.

THE PRESIDENT -- I DON'T

KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN HIS

MIND, BUT TO THINK THAT

FRANCE IS NOW MORE STRONG IN

FOREIGN POLICY THAN AMERICA

IS SIMPLY AMAZING.

BUT THEY'VE TAKEN THE LEAD,

AND WE'RE

NOW, QUOTE,"LEADING FROM

BEHIND," WAY BEHIND.

IRAN IS HOLDING AN AMERICAN

PASTOR IN A BRUTAL PRISON

FOR CHARGES RELATING TO HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

JOHN JESSUP HAS AN UPDATE ON

THAT STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE'S JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, THAT'S

RIGHT.

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI WAS

ALLOWED A FAMILY VISIT FOR

THE FIRST TIME SINCE HIS

TRANSFER TO RAJAJAR PRISON.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE SAYS THIS IS A

POSITIVE SESSION.

SINCE HE WAS TRANSFERRED TO

THIS PRISON, PASTOR SAEED

HAS BEEN DENIED HIS

PRESIDENT.

LAST WEEK THE U.S. SENATE

UNANIMOUSLY PASSED A

BIPARTISAN MEASURE TO CALL

FOR HIS RELEASE.

A SIMILAR MEASURE IS PENDING

IN THE HOUSE.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

THE CENSUS BUREAU AND A

CONGRESSIONAL SUBCOMMITTEE

ARE INVESTIGATING A REPORT

BY FAKE NUMBERS IN THE

UNEMPLOYMENT REPORT AHEAD OF

LAST YEAR'S ELECTION.

THE CENSUS DEPARTMENT PUTS

TOGETHERS THE NUMBERS FOR A

MONTHLY REPORT, AND A

REPORTER IN THAT GROUP SAID

HE WAS TOLD TO MAKE UP

NUMBERS BY HIS PEERS.

SOME PEOPLE, INCLUDING

FORMER G.E. C.E.O. JACK

WELLSH DID RAISE QUESTIONS.

PAT, IT MAY BE TOO SOON TO

TELL, BUT DO YOU THINK IF

THE NUMBERS WEREN'T

MANIPULATED, IT COULD HAVE

IMPACTED LAST YEAR'S

ELECTION RESULTS?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

THEY SAID THE UNEMPLOYMENT

RATE WAS 7.2%, AND THEY GOT

IT UNDER 8%.

IF THIS WHISTLE-BLOWER IS

CORRECT AND THEY FAKED THE

NUMBERS, THAT IS HORRIBLE.

BECAUSE SO MANY BUSINESSES

IN AMERICA GEAR THEIR

ACTIVITIES ON THE BASIS OF

HONEST NUMBERS COMING OUT OF

THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT AND

VARIOUS OTHER DEPARTMENTS OF

GOVERNMENT.

THIS IS -- IS THERE ANY

OTHER LIE THEY CAN BE

TELLING IN THE

ADMINISTRATION?

YOU JUST ASK YOURSELF, WHEN

IS THIS LYING GOING TO STOP,

AND HOW SOON ARE THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE GOING TO

WAKE UP.

THEY'RE BEING CONNED.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, THE NEW

LAW REGULATING ABORTION

CLINICS IN TEXAS WILL STAND

FOR NOW AFTER THE SUPREME

COURT SAID IT WOULD NOT GET

INVOLVED IN THE CASE.

ABOUT A THIRD OF THE STATE'S

CLINICS HAVE CLOSED UNDER

THE LAW SINCE OCTOBER, BUT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS STILL

FIGHTING, SAYING THAT THE

LEGAL BATTLE ISN'T OVER

YET.

VOTERS IN ALBUQUERQUE

REJECTED A BALLOT MEASURE

THAT WOULD HAVE BANNED

ABORTIONS IN 20 WEEKS,

EXCEPT TO SAVE THE MOTHER'S

LIFE.

WOMEN NEED TO HAVE

CONTROL OVER THEIR OWN

BODIES.

Reporter: BY SUPPORTERS

OF BANNING LATE-TERM

ABORTION SAY THE FIGHT IS

FAR FROM OVER.

WE DISAPPOINTED.

WE WILL COME DOWN STRONGER.

WE WILL NEVER BACK DOWN.

WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP.

Reporter: PAID

PROFESSIONAL HACKERS AND

CYBERSECURITY EXPERTS WARN

THAT PERSONAL INFORMATION ON

THE OBAMACARE WEBSITE ISN'T

SAFE.

A PANEL SOLD MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS AT A HEARING THAT

THE WEBSITE IS SUSCEPTIBLE

TO HACKERS AND CRIMINALS,

AND THEY COULD GAIN ACCESS

TO INFORMATION LIKE SOCIAL

SECURITY NUMBERS, BIRTHDAYS,

AND INCOME.

AND ONE EXPERT WARNED

HACKERS COULD ACCESS AND

MONITOR COMPUTER'S WEB CAMS

AND MICROPHONE AND STEAL

PASSWORDS.

TEXAS REPUBLICAN LAMAR SMITH

SAYS GIVEN THE MASSIVE

AMOUNT OF PERSONAL DATA

COLLECTED BY THE WEBSITE, IT

IS TIME TO TAKE OBAMACARE

OFF LIFE SUPPORT.

AND ANOTHER CONCERN THAT WAS

RAISED BY THE HEARING IS

THAT THAT WEBSITE IS

CONNECTED TO OTHER AGENCIES

BIKLIKE THE I.R.S. AND THE

DEPARTMENT SECURITY.

Pat: IT'S APPALLING.

IF A HACKER CAN GET YOUR

SOCIAL SECURITY, CAN GET

YOUR BANK NUMBER, CAN GET

OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR

FAMILY, HE OR SHE -- IT

WOULD BE LIKE HAVING A KEY

TO THE VAULT.

THEY CAN THEN RAID

EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT.

AND TAKE ALL OF YOUR MONEY.

BUT IF THEY GET YOUR BANK

ACCOUNT OR YOUR BROKERAGE

ACCOUNT AND THEY GET YOUR

SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AND A

FEW OTHER PIECES OF

INFORMATION, A CLEVER CROOK

COULD TAKE IT ALL.

AND TO MAKE THIS OPEN AND

THE CYBERHACKERS SAY IT IS

AN EASY THING TO BREAK INTO

THE OBAMACARE WEBSITE, THIS

THING OUGHT TO BE GIVEN A

DEATH.

IT SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN AN

HONORABLE BURIAL.

IT SHOULD BE GIVING A

DISHONORABLE BURIAL IN TURN,

AND START ALL OVER AGAIN.

THERE WAS A PROPOSAL TODAY

THAT HAS A GREAT DEAL OF

MERIT: IF WE'RE GOING TO

SUBSIDIZE THOSE WHO ARE

UNINSURED, LET'S LET THE

PRIVATE SECTOR DO IT, AND

LET'S TAKE SOME FEDERAL

MONEY, IF THAT'S WHAT THEY

WANT TO DO, AND SPEND IT ON

DOING THIS.

BUT LET'S NOT HAVE A PLAN

WHICH PENALIZES HEALTHY

PEOPLE, TO MAKE THEM PAY THE

COST OF UNHEALTHY PEOPLE.

IT IS A BACK DOOR ATTEMPT AT

SOCIALISM.

AND IT IS DRIVING PEOPLE

CRAZY.

BUT FOR THE REPUBLICANS, IT

IS A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON

GIVING.

AND IT MEANS CONTROL OF THE

SENATE.

IT MEANS CONTROL OF THE

HOUSE CONTINUING.

AND IT UNDOUBTEDLY MEANS

CONTROL OF THE WHITE HOUSE

IF THE REPUBLICANS WON'T

SCREW IT UP.

THEY'VE BEEN GIVEN A GIFT,

AND THEY SHOULD TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF IT.

Wendy: AT SOME POINT,

DON'T THE REPUBLICANS HAVE

TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING

BETTER?

Pat: WELL, JUST WHAT I

JUST SAID WOULD DO IT.

A PRIVATE PLAN TO SAY, OKAY,

YOU'VE GOT FOUR PEOPLE WHO

ARE NOT INSURED.

THEY'RE FACING DESPERATION

WITH THEIR HEALTH CARE.

WE WILL GET A SITUATION --

ONE THING, IT'S ENORMOUSLY

HIGH DEDUCTIBLES, AND

LIMITED COVERAGE.

BUT, FOR EXAMPLE, TO TAKE A

MAN WHO IS 60 YEARS OLD, AND

MAKE HIM PAY INSURANCE FOR

FO FOR MATERNAL HEALTH CARE

IS RIDICULOUS.

AND THEN TO SAY YOUR PLAN IS

INADEQUATE ACCORDING TO OUR

GUIDELINES -- INADEQUATE FOR

WHOM?

Wendy: THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR

THAT.

Pat: NO, THEY DIDN'T.

AND THEY WERE LIED TO.

ACCORDING TO A CBS POLL I

READ TODAY, OBAMA'S RATINGS

ARE DIMINISHING MORE.

HE IS SLIDING, SLIDING,

SLIDING.

I DON'T THINK HE CAN

RECOVER.

I THINK THIS THING IS SO

BAD.

AND THE MORE HE DISCUSSES

IT, THE WORST IT GETS.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

COMING UP, THINK THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE PLAN

CAN'T GET ANY WORSE?

THINK AGAIN.

THE NATION'S FOREMOST EXPERT

ON OBAMACARE SAYS MORE BAD

NEWS IS IN STORE FOR AMERICA

NEXT YEAR.

GET THE SCOOP WHEN WE COME

BACK.

*

Pat: SPEAKER, THEN

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, WE'VE

GOT TO PASS THIS LAW SO WE

CAN LEARN WHAT'S IN IT.

AND I DARE SAY -- AND I

WON'T MAKE A BET, BUT I

WOULD BET THAT

THREE-QUARTERS OF THE

MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES

CONGRESS NEVER READ THAT

THING.

AND SOME QUESTION WHETHER

THE PRESIDENT EVER READ IT,

BECAUSE HE DOESN'T ACT LIKE

IT.

WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE NEW

HEALTH CARE LAW COULDN'T GET

ANY WORSE, NEXT YEAR -- OH,

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT'S DOWN

THE ROAD.

AND EVERY AMERICAN IS GOING

TO SUFFER THE IMPACT.

THAT'S THE LATEST WARNING

FROM OUR NEXT GUEST, ONE OF

THE NATION'S LEADING EXPERTS

ON THIS BILL.

Reporter: MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS WERE SHOCKED TO

LEARN THAT THE HEALTH CARE

PLAN THEY LIKED AND COULD

AFFORD WAS CONSIDERED A SUB

STANDARD OR CUT-RATE PLAN

UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

HEALTH CARE LAW.

AND BECAUSE OF THAT, THEIR

POLICIES WOULD NO LONGER BE

AVAILABLE IN 2014.

BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY

THING THAT WILL DISAPPEAR

NEXT YEAR.

BETSBETS BET MCCONAUGHEY

HAS POURED OVER DETAIL.

SHE SAYS IF YOU HAVE TO GET

YOUR HEALTH CARE ON THE

EXCHANGES, YOU MAY NO LONGER

BE ABLE TO SEE THE DOCTOR

YOU WANT OR USE THE HOSPITAL

YOU WANT.

AND EVERYBODY WILL GO FROM

RECEIVING WORLD-CLASS CARE

TO MEDICARE STANDARD CARE.

Pat: BETSY MCCAUGHEY IS

HERE.

HERE IS THE 2,572-PAGE

LAW, IF YOU CAN SEE IT.

THE FACT IS, WHOEVER IS

ELECTED PRESIDENT NEXT TIME,

WHETHER IT IS A MAN OR A

WOMAN, SHOULD MAKE A PLEDGE

NOT TO SIGN ANY BILL OVER 20

PAGES, AND NOT TO SIGN THAT

BILL UNTIL HE OR SHE HAS

READ THAT BILL.

20 PAGES SHOULD BE ENOUGH --

THE FRAMERS OF THE

CONSTITUTION ESTABLISHED THE

ENTIRE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN

JUST 18 PAGES.

Pat: BETSY, HONESTLY,

JUST BETWEEN US FRIENDS, DO

YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT HAS

EVER READ THAT WHOLE BILL?

NO.

HE WOULD NOT HAVE STOOD UP

THERE, AS HE DID SOME THREE

DOZEN TIMES AND SAID, IF YOU

LIKE YOUR HEALTH PLAN, YOU

CAN KEEP YOUR HEALTH PLAN,

PERIOD.

BECAUSE IT IS QUITE CLEAR IN

THIS PLAN, THAT EVERYONE IS

GOING TO BE REQUIRED TO

ENROLL IN THE

ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL ESSENTIAL

BENEFITS PACKAGE.

IT SAYS IT RIGHT THERE IN

THE LAW.

Pat: THE WHOLE IDEA IS

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE THE

WELL-TO-DO INTO A SOCIALIST

SYSTEM WHERE THEY'RE GOING

TO FUND THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE

ANY MONEY.

IS IT A SINGLE-PAIRED DEAL

THEY'RE LOOKING AT?

YES.

THERE ARE TWO PREMISES

BEHIND THIS LAW.

THE FIRST IS THAT WE'RE TOO

STUPID TO PICK THE KIND OF

HEALTH INSURANCE WE WANT.

IT WOULD BE LIKE PASSING A

LAW THAT THE ONLY CAR YOU

CAN BUY IS A FOUR-DOOR

SEDAN.

NO MORE HATCHBACKS, NO MORE

CONVERTIBLES.

WE MIGHT NOT KNOW WHEN TO

PUT THE TOP UP.

AND THE SECOND PRESUMPTION

IS WE CAN FORCE HEALTHY

YOUNG PEOPLE TO PAY EXORORI

EXORITANT PREMIUMS.

IT WOULD BE SMARTER TO SPEND

THE MONEY ON THE PEOPLE WHO

HAVE THE PRE-EXISTING

CONDITIONS.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS

GOING TO SPEND ANOTHER

$700 MILLION VERY SOON ON AN

ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN TO WOO

YOUNG PEOPLE INTO THIS

PLAN.

THE MONEY SHOULD BE SPENT ON

SURGERIES AND MEDICINES AND

DOCTORS' FEES FOR THOSE WHO

ARE CRITICALLY ILL.

BUT, INSTEAD, THEY'RE GOING

TO BE DUMPED FROM THEIR

PLAN.

Pat: BETSY, IT LOOKS

LIKE THERE WAS SOME KIND OF

A FIX.

WHAT JAMMED THIS THING

THROUGH?

THEY HAD NO REPUBLICAN

SUPPORT.

BUT THEY JAMMED IT THROUGH.

WHO DID IT?

THAT'S RIGHT.

FIRST OF ALL, THEY JAMMED IT

THROUGH THE SENATE ON

CHRISTMAS EVE, IN VIOLATION

OF THE CONSTITUTION THAT

SAYS ALL BILLS THAT RAISE

REVENUE SHOULD ORIGINAL NAT

IORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE.

THEY TOOK A HEALTH CARE PLAN

AND STRIPPED EVERY WORD WITH

IT AND FILLED IT WITH THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT AND

PASSED IT.

IT WAS A SHAM.

IT WAS UNCONSTITUTIONAL FROM

THE BEGINNING.

AND I WONDER SOMETIMES WHY

SO MANY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

PUT LOYALTY TO THE PRESIDENT

OR LOYALTY TO THE PARTY

AHEAD OF OF THE LOYALTY TO

THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

THEY TOOK AN OATH TO UP HOLD

AND DEFEND THE

CONSTITUTION.

Pat: NEXT YEAR YOU SAID

IT IS REALLY GOING TO GET

BAD.

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT

YEAR?

WE'VE SEEN ABOUT FIVE

MILLION PEOPLE GET

CANCELLATION NOTICES IN THE

MAIL.

THEY HAD INDIVIDUAL PLANS

AND BOUGHT THEM ON THE

HEALTH INSURANCE MARKET.

AND NOW THE OTHER SHOE IS

GOING TO DROP.

MILLIONS WHO GET THEIR

HEALTH COVERAGE THROUGH

THEIR JOB, OR THEIR SPOUSES,

ARE GOING TO GET THOSE

LETTERS.

OR THEIR EMPLOYER IS GOING

TO SAY, I CAN'T AFFORD TO

BUY HEALTH CARE ANYMORE.

WHAT IS UNBELIEVABLE,

CONGRESS WAS WARNED BEFORE

THEY EVER PASSED THIS LAW

THAT FEWER PEOPLE WOULD GET

ON THE JOB COVERAGE AFTER

THE LAW PASSED THAN IT

DIDN'T PASS.

IMAGINE THAT, THE

CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE

SAID IT WOULD DECREASE THE

NUMBER OF PEOPLE WITH

EMPLOYER-PROVIDED HEALTH

COVERAGE, AND THEY PASSED IT

ANYWAY.

Pat: I MEAN, IS IT

SELECTED AMNESIA IN

WASHINGTON?

WHAT IS THE DEAL.

IT WAS ALMOST LIKE A FIX OR

A MIASMA.

IS THIS THE THING THEY WANT,

TO MOVE US INTO

EUROPEAN-STYLE SOCIALISM?

CLEARLY MANY PEOPLE IN

CONGRESS DO WANT TO DO

THAT.

BUT AT THIS POINT, WHEN WE

SEE OBAMACARE CRUMBLING, THE

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE AN

IMMEDIATE OBLIGATION TO STOP

THE BLEEDING.

THEY NEED TO HELP THE

800,000 PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS

PRE-CONDITIONS.

38 STATES HAVE HIGH-RISK

POOLS WHERE THOSE PEOPLE CAN

GET INSURANCE.

MANY OF THOSE POOLS ARE

CLOSING DOWN AT THE END OF

DECEMBER, LEAVING THOSE

PEOPLE TOTALLY UNCOVERED.

SOME ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF

CHEMOTHERAPY.

I THINK CONGRESS SHOULD

RIGHT NOW REPEAL ONE PART OF

THE LAW, TITLE ONE, WHICH

INCLUDES THE INDIVIDUAL AND

EMPLOYER MANDATE, AND THE

ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL GOVERNMENT

DESIGNED HEALTH PLAN.

AND THEY SHOULD TAKE THAT

MONEY, $21 BILLION THIS YEAR

AND $51 BILLION THE NEXT,

AND PROVIDE COVERAGE TO

PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING

BUSINESS.

AND PROVIDE THOSE WITH PLANS

WHO DON'T HAVE IT.

BUT THIS JUST ISN'T ABOUT

POLITICS.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE

REALLY HURTING BECAUSE OF

THIS LAW.

Pat: ACTUALLY, PEOPLE

ARE GOING TO DIE, AREN'T

THEY?

THEY ARE.

SOME PEOPLE WILL EVEN DIE.

I HATE TO SAY THAT, BUT SOME

PEOPLE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO

GET THE HEALTH COVERAGE THEY

NEED BECAUSE OF THOSE

POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON.

Pat: DOCTORS CAN OPT

OUT OF THIS THING, IF THEY

DON'T WANT TO TREAT THE

PATIENTS, AND MANY DOCTORS

ARE LEAVING THEIR PRACTICE.

WHAT ARE THEY DOING?

LET ME GIVE YOU AN

EXAMPLE.

IN NEW YORK, 24% -- ONLY 24%

OF DOCTORS, LESS THAN A

QUARTER, ARE WILLING TO

PARTICIPATE IN THESE

EXCHANGE PLANS.

AND WHEREVER YOU ARE, IF YOU

SIGN UP FOR ONE OF THESE

EXCHANGE PLANS, CHANCES ARE

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE

TO USE THE DOCTORS AND

HOSPITALS YOU CURRENTLY

PREFER.

BECAUSE THESE EXCHANGE PLANS

PAY MUCH LESS THAN CURRENT

COMMERCIAL INSURANCE PLANS

PAY DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS.

IT IS MEDICAID-LEVEL CARE.

IF YOU'RE IN CALIFORNIA, YOU

CAN'T GO TO SEATE SEATER

CEDAR SIG SINAI.

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, 10 OUT OF

20 HOSPITALS WERE EXCLUDED

FROM THIS PLAN.

Pat: WHAT ARE WE GOING

TO DO?

WE'VE GOT THIS PRESIDENT FOR

A WHILE?

IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE IS

GOING TO BE A REVOLUTION?

I'M SO GLAD YOU ASKED.

BECAUSE WE, THE PEOPLE, CAN

MAKE THIS 2014 ELECTION A

REFERENDUM ON THE OBAMA

HEALTH CARE PLAN.

2014 THEY CAN GO TO THE

POLLS AND PULL THE LEVER FOR

SOMEBODY WHO IS TRULY

COMMITTED TO ELIMINATING

THIS LAW BECAUSE OTHERWISE

ALL OF OUR HEALTH CARE IS

GOING TO SUFFER.

Pat: BETSY, THANK YOU.

IF WE HAVE TIME, I'D LIKE

TO --

Pat: GO AHEAD.

IF WE HAVE TIME, I WOULD

LIKE TO GIVE A COUPLE OF

PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS, NOT

POLITICAL.

IF YOU'RE A BABY-BOOMER,

LINE UP YOUR DOCTORS NOW,

YOUR CARDIOLOGIST, EVEN IF

YOU'RE HEALTHY, BECAUSE IF

YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU TURN 65

AND GO ON MEDICARE, YOU WILL

NOT FIND A DOCTOR WILLING TO

TAKE YOU ON.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO THE

HOSPITAL AND YOU KNOW IT

ALREADY, TRY TO COBBLE

TOGETHER ENOUGH MONEY FOR A

PRIVATE DUTY NURSE, AT LEAST

THE FIRST NIGHT BECAUSE THE

CUTS UNDER MEDICARE --

MEDICARE PAYS FOR CARE --

AND THE CUTS TO HOSPITALS

ARE SO SEVERE THEY ARE

ALREADY LAYING OFF NURSES

AND SPREADING THE CARE TOO

THIN.

Pat: IT SOUNDS LIKE

YOU'RE LIKE PAUL REVERE OF

HEALTH CARE.

I HOPE PEOPLE WILL LISTEN TO

YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE ONE OF

THE FEW WHO KNOWS WHAT

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

BETS SEE MCCAUGHEY, SHE IS

AMAZING.

Wendy: SHE IS.

Pat: SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE

IS TALKING ABOUT.

THE PRESIDENT HADN'T READ

THE COTTON-PICKING BILL.

Wendy: I LIKE WHAT SHE

SAID ABOUT 2014, THAT PEOPLE

CAN SPEAK, AND I HOPE THEY

WILL.

Pat: THIS IS TOUCHING

EVERYBODY.

WITH CLINTON, HE HAD A FLING

WITH ONE INTERN.

OKAY, HE IS DOING BAD SEX

THINGS AND LYING.

BUT IT IS ONE GUY AND ONE

WOMAN, OKAY.

MAYBE HE HAD A FEW OTHERS,

BUT NOT -- THIS IS AFFECTING

THE WHOLE NATION.

THIS IS AFFECTING

EVERYBODY.

AND THE PEOPLE SAY NOT ON

OUR SHOULDERS ARE YOU GOING

TO PUT THIS BURDEN.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT.

REVOLUTION!

Wendy: UP NEXT, A

FORMER PACK 12 BASKETBALL

COACH OF THE YEAR.

THE MORE YOU WIN, THE

MORE PEOPLE WANT YOU TO

WIN.

FOR ME, THE MORE I WON, THE

MORE I WANTED TO WIN.

IT NEVER STOPS.

Wendy: LORENZO TELLS

HOW HE HAS TAKEN THE

WASHINGTON HUSKIES TO THE

HEAD OF THE PACK.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: EVERY YEAR LOREN

LORENZO LOMAR HAS TO

REINVENT HIMSELF.

THAT'S HOW HE STAYS AT THE

TOP OF HIS GAME.

HE IS PART OF A WINNING

STRATEGY THAT HAS COMPLETELY

TURNED HIS TEAM AROUND AFTER

THREE STRAIGHT LOSING

SEASONS.

THE HUSKY'S COACH HAS ALSO

TOLD SPORTS REPORTER TOM

BURING HOW TO STAY ON TOP OF

ALL OF THAT PRESSURE.

Reporter: DURING THE

COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON,

COACH LORENZO IS THE HUSKY'S

LEAD DOG.

HE BUILT A NEW BRAND OF

SUCCESS.

HUSKY BASKETBALL IS

SOMETHING THAT IS

RELENTLESS.

IT IS CONSTANTLY COMING AT

YOU, AND WE'RE TRYING TO

INITIATE TEMPLE.

WE'RE TRYING TO NISHIATE THE

ACTION. INITIATE THE TACKLE.

Reporter: AS PART OF 51

NCAA TEAMS, THERE IS NO

RELIEF FROM THE DEMAND TO

ACHIEVE.

THE MORE YOU WIN, THE

MORE PEOPLE WANT YOU TO

WIN.

FOR ME, THE MORE I WIN, THE

MORE I WANT TO WIN.

IT NEVER STOPS.

YOU CAN NEVER BE TOTALLY

SATISFIED.

Reporter: LOMAR WAS

HIRED BY HIS ALMA MATER IN

2002, TO TURN AROUND THREE

LOSING SEASONS, FALLING

ATTENDANCE, AND INSUFFICIENT

ACADEMIC STANDING.

HIS SEATTLE RIDING

IMMEDIATELY RAISED THE

PROGRAM'S EXPECTATIONS AND

VISIBILITY.

HE BROUGHT ENTHUSIASM AND

UNPRECEDENTED MOMENTUM.

COMING BACK AND BEING

ABLE TO DO THIS WHERE I WAS

A STUDENT ATHLETE, WHERE I

ATTENDED COLLEGE, MAKES IT

EXTRA SPECIAL.

Reporter: IT TOOK HIM

JUST TWO SEASONS TO REACH

BACK-TO-BACK APPEARANCES.

HE DROVE THEIR PROGRAM

FORWARD WHILE RAISING

GRADUATION RATES.

IN 2012, LORENZO WAS NAMED

PAC 12 CONFERENCE COACH OF

THE YEAR.

SUSTAINING A PROGRAM IS

TOUGHER THAN GETTING IT

TURNED AROUND.

ONCE YOU'RE ON THE JOB, IN

THIS POSITION, THERE ISN'T A

LOT OF MYSTERY LEFT.

PEOPLE KNOW HOW YOU CONDUCT

THINGS.

IF THINGS DON'T GO WELL FOR

A DAY, A MONTH, A YEAR, YOU

BECOME STALE.

SO YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE TO

AT TIMES REINVENT YOURSELF.

Reporter: THE INTENSE

PRESSURES OF A COLLEGE

BASKETBALL COACH ARE

CONSTANT, WHERE SUCCESS IS

MEASURED BY WINS AND

ACADEMICS, ALL FROM THE

EFFORT OF YOUNG, DEVELOPING

ATHLETES.

HOW DOES COACH LORENZO

HANDLE THE STRESS?

HE REMAINS WILLING TO LEARN

AND HAS A MUCH HIGHER

POWER.

I'M DEPENDING ON GOD.

I'M DOING MY BEST.

IF IT DOESN'T WORK OUT,

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE I CAN

DO ABOUT IT.

I MAY NOT HAVE DONE A GOOD

ENOUGH JOB, BUT GOD IS STILL

IN CONTROL OF MY LIFE.

IF IT DIDN'T WORK OUT HERE,

WHAT ELSE DOES GOD HAVE IN

STORE.

BECAUSE THERE IS SOMETHING.

Reporter: IT WAS A

LESSON HE LEARNED AFTER

COLLEGE, AFTER PLAYING FIVE

SEASONS IN THE NBA.

AS HE DID WITH BASKETBALL,

HE LIVED LIFE BASED ON HIS

PERFORMANCE.

GETTING CLOSER TO GOD WAS

LIKE A SPORTING EVENT.

THE MORE GOOD DEEDS I COULD

DO, THEY WOULD ADD UP AND I

COULD SCORE POINTS WITH

GOD.

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

BECAUSE I BELIEVED THE BIBLE

WAS THE WORD OF GOD.

I HAD JUST NOT SPENT ANY

TIME IN IT.

SO I READ THROUGH IT.

AND AS I KEPT READING,

POINTS DON'T GET YOU TO

HEAVEN.

THE POINTS DON'T GIVE YOU A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

THERE WEREN'T ENOUGH POINTS

YOU COULD SCORE AS A HUMAN

DOWN HERE BECAUSE GOD'S

STANDARD WAS ABOVE -- IT WAS

OUT OF REACH.

Reporter: LORENZO THE

PLAYER MEASURED THE

DIFFERENCE AND GAVE GOD A

SHOT.

HE MADE A WAY FOR IT TO

WORK.

HE, HIMSELF, CAME DOWN TO

THIS EARTH IN THE PERSON OF

JESUS CHRIST.

HE HAD ALREADY SCORED ALL OF

THE POINTS, BASICALLY FOR

ME.

AND I REALIZED SOMETHING

ELSE.

THIS DEAL DIDN'T START WHEN

I DIED.

IT STARTED IMMEDIATELY.

IF I ACCEPTED WHAT JESUS DID

ON THE CROSS, BELIEVE HE

ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND HE IS

ALIVE TODAY TO SAVE ME FROM

MY SIN, I ASKED HIM TO COME

INTO MY LIFE, THEN I WOULD

CEASE TO BE JUST A CREATION

OF GOD: I WOULD BECOME A

CHILD OF GOD.

Reporter: LORENZO WAS

CUT BY THE NBA.

HE JOINED ATHLETES IN

ACTION, FIRST AS A PLAYER,

THEN AS A COACH, BEFORE

BEING NAMED COACH OF A 1995

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM.

GOD HAD A PLAN FOR ME.

FROM THERE, I LEARNED A LOT

OF MINISTRY, HOW TO DEAL

WITH ATHLETES.

IT WAS AS IF GOD TRAINED ME

TO GO OUT AND USE THE SAME

BIBLICAL CONCEPTS TO TRY TO

AFFECT PEOPLE'S LIVES.

SO WHAT APPEARED TO BE A

FAILURE IN THE NBA WAS NOT

IN GOD'S EYES.

GOD JUST USED THAT AS A

LITTLE CREDIBILITY HERE TO

DO ANOTHER JOB IN ANOTHER

PLACE.

AND WITH GOD, YOU'RE ALWAYS

GOING THROUGH ON-THE-JOB

TRAINING.

Reporter: HE IS KNOWN

AS A TOP RECRUITER, AND

VOTED AS THE OPPOSING COACH

PLAYERS WOULD MOST LIKE TO

PLAY FOR.

UNDER HIS LEADERSHIP AND

DEVELOPMENT, WASHINGTON HAS

HAD AT LEAST ONE PLAYER

SELECTED IN SEVEN OF THE

LAST NBA DRAFTS.

SIX HAVE BEEN FIRST ROUND

PICKS.

I THINK THIS GENERATION

IS UNIQUE.

I THINK THERE ARE MANY OUT

THERE THAT DON'T HAVE

MENTORSHIP, DON'T HAVE THAT

TYPE OF FATHER FIGURE THAT

CAN SAY, OKAY, THIS IS HOW

IT'S DONE.

WHEN YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY

TO MENTOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND

TO FEEL LIKE YOU'RE HAVING

AN AFFECT IN A POSITIVE WAY

IN THEIR LIVES, IT IS VERY

GRATIFYING.

THAT LASTS LONGER THAN THE

STATISTICS.

Reporter: LORENZO

LOMAR, COLLEGE BASKETBALL

COACH AND GAME CHANGER,

SHOOTING FROM THE HEART.

YOU GET A SCHOLARSHIP,

YOU'RE ON THE TEAM, THEY'RE

PAYING YOU'RE WAY THROUGH

SCHOOL.

BUT TO MAKE AN IMPACT,

YOU'RE IN THAT WEIGHT ROOM.

YOU'RE RUNNING EXTRA

SPRINTS.

YOU'RE DOING ALL KINDS OF

STUFF TO MAKE IT AT THAT

HIGH LEVEL.

TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN AND TO

BE TAKEN CARE OF, YOU HAVE

TO AGREE TO EXCEPT THE

GIFT.

BUT TO BE AN IMPACT PLAYER

FOR GOD, YOU'VE GOT TO

WORK.

Pat: YOU KNOW, LORENZO

HAS GOT IT RIGHT.

THE BIBLE SAYS NOT BY WORKS

OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WE HAVE

DONE, BUT BY HIS OWN GREAT

LOVE HE SAVED US.

FOR BY GRACE ARE YOU SAVED

THROUGH FAITH.

THAT NOT OF YOURSELF, IS A

GIFT OF GOD.

YOU SEE, IT IS A FREE GIFT.

BUT IT COST JESUS

EVERYTHING.

HE SUFFERED.

HE DIED.

HE WAS REJECTED.

HE WAS SPIT UPON.

AND HE WAS SEPARATED FOR A

SHORT PERIOD OF TIME FROM

THE FATHER.

AND THE SON SAID, WHY ARE

YOU FORSAKEN ME?

JESUS DID IT ALL FOR YOU.

SO YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

ENHANCE THAT ANY.

BUT WHAT HE SAYS IS, WILL

YOU LET ME COME IN?

AND IF WE RECEIVE THE GIFT,

HE'LL TRANSFORM US.

THAT'S WHAT SALVATION IS.

YOU DON'T KEEP WORKING AND

WORKING AND WORKING, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN YOU MAKE ONE

LITTLE JUMP OF FAITH AND

SUDDENLY YOU'RE IN.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

IT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY.

AND GOD IS NOT A DIVINE

SCORE KEEPER.

OKAY, ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR,

FIVE, AND KEEPS COUNTING IT

UP.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

IT'S THROUGH GRACE.

THROUGH THE GRACE OF OUR

LORD JESUS CHRIST.

AND IF YOU WANT THAT, HE

SAYS TO YOU RIGHT NOW, AT

THIS POINT, IF YOU'LL LET ME

COME INTO YOUR LIFE, AND IF

YOU'RE SURRENDER TO ME, I'LL

TAKE YOU TO HEAVEN.

I'LL GUARANTEE I'LL TAKE YOU

TO HEAVEN IF YOU GIVE YOUR

HEART TO ME NOW.

NOT WHEN YOU DIE, BUT NOW.

AND IF YOU WANT THAT, I WANT

YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD AND

PRAY WITH ME.

PRAY THESE WORDS: LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

LORD, JESUS CHRIST, I'M

YOURS, LORD.

I KNOW YOU DIED FOR ME.

AND, LORD, I KNOW THAT MY

RIGHTEOUS DEEDS ARE LIKE

FILTHY RAGS.

AND THERE IS NOTHING I CAN

DO TO SAVE MYSELF.

BUT I KNOW THAT YOU'VE

ALREADY DONE WHAT IT TAKES

THAT I MIGHT BE SAVED.

AND SO AT THIS MOMENT I TAKE

MY LIFE AND I GIVE IT TO

YOU.

AND I RECEIVE FROM YOU THE

FREE GIFT OF YOUR

SALVATION.

AND I ASK THAT YOU WOULD

COME INTO MY HEART.

LIVE IN ME, THAT I MIGHT BE

BORN AGAIN BY THE SPIRIT OF

GOD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I WANT TO SEND YOU

SOMETHING.

YOU SAY, WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

I'VE GOT SOME ANSWERS HERE

OF WHAT THE BIBLE HAS TO SAY

ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

AND WHAT DID YOU JUST DO.

WHAT IS IT?

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU.

IT IS CALLED A NEW DAY.

AND I THINK YOU'LL REALLY

APPRECIATE IT.

IT'S LOADED WITH VERY

IMPORTANT TEACHINGS.

AND I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE IF YOU JUST GIVE US A

CALL.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

YOU CAN SAY, I PRAYED WITH

PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

1-800-759-0700.

AND WE'RE HERE BECAUSE WE

CARE ABOUT YOU.

AND THE LORD LOVES YOU.

SO QUICKLY GO TO YOUR

PHONE.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO CARES

ABOUT YOU.

AND JUST GIVE US THE GOOD

NEWS THAT YOU HAVE TRUSTED

IN THE SALVATION OF JESUS

CHRIST.

WELL, MORE COMING.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

UP NEXT, THE ANTEDOTE FOR

WHAT AILS THE ME, ME, ME

GENERATION.

MEET OF MOTHER OF FIVE WHO'S

12-MONTH EXPERIMENT CLEANED

HER HOUSE OF YOUTH

ENTITLEMENT.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

NEW LEGISLATION ALLOWING GAY

MARRIAGE IN ILLINOIS COULD

POSE A THREAT TO SOME

BUSINESSES.

THE LEGISLATION SAYS

RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS,

CLERGY AND SOME PRIVATE

CLUBS DON'T HAVE TO ALLOW OR

OFFICIATE GAY WEDDINGS, IT

ISN'T AS CLEAR FOR OWNERS

WHO DON'T WANT TO

PARTICIPATE.

THAT COULD RESULT IN MORE

COURT BATTLES AS OTHER

STATES HAVE SEEN.

STUDIES OF CHILDREN AROUND

THE WORLD SHOW KIDS TODAY

ARE FAR LESS FIT THAN THEIR

PARENTS WERE.

THE ANALYSIS BY THE AMERICAN

HEART ASSOCIATION SHOWS KIDS

DON'T RUN AS FAST OR AS FAR

AS THEIR PARENTS DID WHEN

THEY WERE YOUNG.

HEART-RELATED FITNESS HAS

ALSO DECLINED 5% PER DECADE

SINCE 1975.

HEALTH EXPERTS RECOMMEND

CHILDREN SIX AND OLDER GET

60 MINUTES OF MODERATELY

VIGOROUS ACTIVITY THROUGHOUT

EACH DAY.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: YOU MIGHT THINK

THAT A BOOK CALLED "CLEANING

HOUSE" WOULD HAVE THE LATEST

TIPS TO KEEP YOUR HOME NEAT

AND SPARKLING.

BUT NOT THIS ONE.

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE BRAVE

MOTHER WHO WAS DETERMINED TO

SCRUB THE "I'M ENTITLED"

ATTITUDE OFF HER FIVE KIDS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: DO YOUR KIDS

STILL EXPECT YOU TO MAKE

THEIR BEDS?

DO THEY ROLL THEIR EYES IF

YOU ASK THEM TO CLEAN THE

BATHROOM?

FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TODAY, THE

IDEA OF WORKING HARD TO

ACHIEVE THE AMERICAN DREAM

HAS CHANGED.

IT'S BEEN REPLACED WITH AN

ATTITUDE OF ENTITLEMENT.

THAT PROMPTED AUTHOR AND

BLOGGER KAY WHIMA TO TRY A

YEAR-LONG EXPERIMENT WITH

HER KIDS.

Wendy: AND PLEASE

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

KAY WHIMA.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME.

Wendy: HOW OLD WERE

YOUR KIDS WHEN YOU DECIDED

TO CLEANSE THEM FROM THE

ENTITLEMENT COMPLEX.

WE HAVE FIVE.

AT THAT POINT IT WAS A

14-YEAR-OLD.

THEY WERE 14, 12, 10, 8, AND

3.

AND IT WAS ACTUALLY A CAR

RIDE WITH THAT 14-YEAR-OLD

THAT STARTED IT ALL.

WE WERE IN DALLAS, DRIVING

ALONG.

AND WE WERE THE MEAT IN A

LUXURY CAR SANDWICH.

WHERE THE 14-YEAR-OLD OPINED

OUT LOUD, WHICH CAR DO YOU

THINK I WOULD LOOK GOOD IN.

THERE WAS A PORSCHE, A

LUXUS, AND I SWALLOWED THE

VOMIT IN MY THROAT.

IT OPENED MY EYES TO

SOMETHING, HOW ARE YOU

SAYING THAT WHEN YOU KNOW

ALL OF THESE LECTURES THAT

I'VE GIVEN YOU ABOUT IT NOT

BEING ABOUT STUFF.

I CAME HOME FROM THAT RIDE,

AND EVERY DISH WAS OUT,

EVERY ROOM WAS MESSY, EVERY

BED WAS UNMADE.

I HAD A MOMENT WHERE I SAT

DOWN THINKING, SOMETHING IS

WRONG.

SOMETHING IS NOT WORKING

BECAUSE THEY'RE LOOKING TO

ME TO DO EVERYTHING FOR

THEM.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT MOST

PARENTS DEAL WITH IN THEIR

OWN HOMES.

Wendy: TELL US A LITTLE

BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU DID

STARTING WITH THAT FIRST

MONTH.

WITH THE FIRST MONTH --

Wendy: WHEN YOU DECIDED

SOMETHING HAS GOT TO

CHANGE.

I SAT THERE, AND I WAS

LIKE OH, MY GOSH, THESE KIDS

ARE LOOKING TO THE STATE TO

SERVE THEM, AND I'M GROOMING

SOCIALISM, AND I DON'T

BELIEVE IN THAT.

YOU'VE GOT A FRUSTRATED

MOTHER ON SOMETHING, AND

THINGS CHANGE.

I WENT THROUGH THE LIST

THINKING, WHAT DO THEY NOT

KNOW TO BE ABLE TO GET OUT

OF OUR HOUSE AND LIVE

INDEPENDENTLY, WHICH IS WHAT

WE WANT FOR OUR KIDS.

I STARTED SMALL, JUST WITH

THEIR ROOMS.

HAVING THEM START MAKING

LIA THEIR BEDS.

THEN MOVE TO THE KITCHEN.

DO THEY KNOW HOW TO COOK?

DO THEY KNOW WHERE THE FOOD

COMES FROM?

OR DO THEY THINK IT JUST

ARRIVES.

AND THEN GOING TO THE

LAUNDRY.

AND SO WE STARTED SIMPLE.

Wendy: HOW DID THEY

RESPOND TO ALL OF THE

CHANGES IN THE HOUSEHOLD?

SH THEY RESPONDED LIKE

MOST KIDS DO, THEY WHINE AND

COMPLAIN, BUT THEN THEY

STEPPED UP.

THIS IS WHAT I THOUGHT IT

WAS INTERESTING, KIDS THRIVE

ON EXPECTATIONS.

AS PARENTS, WE DO THIS

WELL-MEANING, BECAUSE WE

LOVE THEM.

WE OVERTROPHY OUR CHILDREN

BECAUSE WE WANT OUR CHILDREN

TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT

THEMSELVES.

WE SAY TO THEM, YOU CAN DO

ANYTHING YOU CAN PUT YOUR

MIND TO, BUT THEN WE RACE IN

AHEAD OF THEM AND DO IT FOR

THEM BECAUSE WE WANT THEIR

SELF-ESTEEM TO BE OKAY.

AND WE'VE BEEN GROOMED TO

THINK THAT'S WHAT WORKS.

AS I STARTED PUTTING THESE

THINGS LEGITIMATELY ON THE

KIDS' PLATES, GREAT THINGS

HAPPENED BECAUSE THEY

STARTED DOING THINGS THEY

COULDN'T THINK THEY COULD

DO.

THERE WERE REAL ACTIVITIES

THAT BACKED UP THE WORDS

"YOU'RE AMAZING."

AND IT WAS ALL IN OUR

HOUSE.

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS

IT IS SAD WE WOULD BE

TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE IN THE

GENERATION BEFORE US, THIS

WAS A WAY OF LIFE.

WE'VE STRIPPED IT FROM OUR

KIDS.

AND NOW WE'RE SO DESPERATELY

NEEDING TO GO BACK IN

BECAUSE SADLY I THINK IT IS

CHANGING THE FIBER OF OUR

COUNTRY.

Wendy: GIVE ME SOME

EXAMPLES OF THINGS YOU

REALLY CHANGED, AND YOU JUST

SAID, I'M NOT GOING TO DO

THIS FOR YOU ANYMORE.

YOU REALLY WERE TEACHING

THEM DISCIPLINE.

YES.

BECAUSE THAT DESPERATELY

COMES WITH IT.

WE KNOW YOU TRAIN A CHILD IN

THE WAY HE SHOULD GO, AND

WHEN HE GETS OLDER, HE WON'T

DEPART FROM IT.

TEACHING MEANS SHOWING THEM

AND THEN GETTING THE HECK

OUT OF THE WAY AND LET THEM

DO IT THEMSELVES.

SIMPLE THINGS.

EVEN DINNER, FOR EXAMPLE.

ONE PART OF THE WORK THAT IS

SO AMAZING IS THAT YOU'RE

ALWAYS SERVING SOMEONE ON

THE OTHER SIDE, KIND OF THE

SECRET SAUCE OF LIFE.

SO EVEN AS THE CHILDREN

WOULD GO ABOUT THE PROCESS

OF GOING TO THE GROCERY

STORE, MAKING A MEAL, AND

SETTING IT BEFORE THE

HARSHEST CRITICS IN THE

WORLD BECAUSE YOUR FAMILY IS

THE WORST.

I WOULD WATCH THEM SWELL

WITH INDEPENDENCE AND PRIDE

OF WHAT THEY CREATED, AND IT

WOULD JUST BE A MEAL.

Wendy: WHAT MESSAGE

WERE YOU SENDING YOUR

CHILDREN IN THIS FORM OF

WORK?

I THINK THE TRUE MESSAGE

WAS, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW

MUCH I LOVE YOU BECAUSE I'M

MAKING YOU DO THIS.

THEY WOULD GET IN THE CAR,

JUST EXCLAIMING WHAT A MEAN

MOM I AM BECAUSE THAT BECAME

THE MANTRA, YOU'RE SUCH A

MEAN MOM.

NOBODY ELSE HAS TO DO THIS.

BUT IT BECAME A BADGE OF

HONOR FOR THEM, WHICH SHE

EMBRACE STILL TO THIS DAY.

AND THEY STILL WHINE.

THE WHINING NEVER STOPS.

BUT IT IS INTERESTING TO

WATCH THEM APPROACH THINGS

LIKE THIS TO ME BECAUSE THEY

WANT TO TRY IT, AND THEY

WANT TO DO IT.

THAT'S THE MOST FASCINATING

PART.

I THINK PARENTS ARE AFRAID

TO PUT THE THINGS ON THEIR

KIDS' PLATES BECAUSE THEY

THINK THEY MAY FAIL.

AND WE HAVE THIS TREND AND

NEVER LETTING OUR KIDS FAIL,

WHICH IS SUCH A DISSERVICE

BECAUSE LIFE IS FULL OF

THAT.

YOU WANT THEM TO LEARN HOW

TO GET UP ON THEIR OWN.

OUR COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON

PROBLEM-SOLVERS AND CRITICAL

THINKERS, AND WE'RE

STRIPPING THAT OUT OF

SOCIETY.

IF WE WANT IT BACK, IT

STARTS ONE HOME AT A TIME.

CHUCK COLSON ALSO SAID,

CULTURE DOESN'T CHANGE

PEOPLE, BUT PEOPLE CHANGE

CULTURE.

Wendy: THE 16-YEAR-OLD,

DID HE EVER GET THAT

PORSCHE?

NO.

IT WASN'T ABOUT THE CAR.

IT WAS ABOUT BELONGING.

IF HE WAS DRIVING THAT CAR,

HE WAS OKAY.

AND THAT VOLUME HAS BEEN

TURNED DOWN IN OUR HOUSE.

Wendy: IT HAS BEEN TWO

YEARS SINCE THE EXPERIMENT.

HOW ARE YOU KIDS DOING

TODAY?

THEY'RE GREAT.

THEY'RE REGULAR KIDS.

WE'RE A REGULAR HOUSE.

YOU COULD COME IN AND BEDS

WOULD BE UNMADE, BUT THEY'RE

DEFINITELY LOOKING MORE TO

EMBRACING CHALLENGES THAN

THEY ARE FOR ME TO FIX

THEM.

Wendy: THIS WILL BE A

REVOLUTION FOR MANY, MANY

FAMILIES.

IT IS CALLED "CLEANING

HOUSE," AND IT IS AVAILABLE

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME.

Wendy: PAT, I THINK

THIS WILL STIR THINGS UP?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

COMING UP NEXT, WE'VE GOT

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

COLEMAN WANTS TO KNOW,

"WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT

SAY WE GET GOOD HEALTH AND

WEALTHY AS A RESULT OF

TITHING?

WHERE DOES IT REQUIRE 10% OF

OUR GROSS INCOME?"

STAY TUNED.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK.

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT ON"

WITH YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

AND PAT IS GOING TO ANSWER

THEM.

COLEMAN WRITES, "WHERE IN

THE BIBLE DOES IT SAY WE GET

GOOD HEALTH AND WEALTH AS A

RESULT OF TITHING?

WHERE DOES IT REQUIRE 10% OF

OUR GROSS INCOMES?"

Pat: I SUGGEST YOU

OUGHT TO READ MALACHI.

IT SAYS YOU'RE UNDER A

CURSE.

AND THEY SAID, WHAT DO YOU

MEAN CURSE.

AND THEY SAID BECAUSE YOU'RE

ROBBING GOD.

HOW ARE WE ROBBING GOD?

IN TIME TITHES AND

OFFERINGS.

IT WENT BACK TO JACOB, AND

GOD BLESSED HIM AND HE GAVE

10%.

GOD DOESN'T NEED OUR MONEY.

HE IS LOADED.

THE CATTLE ON A THOUSAND

HILLS ARE HIS, AND ALL OF

THE GOLD AND THE OIL AND THE

RESOURCES UNDER HIS -- THEY

ALL BELONG TO THE LORD.

IT IS ALL HIS.

SO WHAT CAN WE GIVE TO HIM?

NOTHING.

BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT

IS KIND OF LIKE A LITTLE

CLAIM ON US.

AND WE SAY, GOD, I

ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR CLAIM ON ME

AND ON MY RESOURCES.

I'M GOING TO TAKE A 10th

OF IT AND -- BUT,,

OF COURSE, THERE WERE

SEVERAL 10THs.

I USED TO THINK THAT

THREE-TENTHS WAS MORE

APPROPRIATE.

BUT WHERE DOES IT SAY A

BLESSING?

IT SAYS IT, "PROVE ME, I

WON'T OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR YOU SUCH A

BLESSING YOU CAN'T CONTAIN

IT, AND I WILL REBUKE THE

DEVOUR," THAT'S SICKNESS.

Wendy: LORI WRITES, "I

GO TO THE CHURCH THAT SAYS

THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT, SUCH AS SPEAKING IN

TONGUES, ARE NOT FOR TODAY'S

TIMES, AND THEY DON'T ANOINT

PEOPLE WITH OIL, SAYING ONLY

THE ELDERS OF THE CHURCH CAN

DO SO.

CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME

SCRIPTURES THAT CONFIRM

THEIR BELIEFS, OR IF THEY

ARE INACCURATE, CAN YOU USE

SCRIPTURE TO POINT ME IN THE

RIGHT DIRECTION?"

Wendy: THEY SAID THEY

CAN'T SPEAK IN TONGUES.

Pat: THE APOSTLE PAUL,

WRITING IN CORINTHIANS, HE

SAID, "I WOULD THAT YOU ALL

SPOKE IN TONGUES."

AND HE ALSO SAID, "I THANK

MY GOD THAT I SPEAK IN

TONGUES MORE THAN YOU ALL."

THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS CHRIST

THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY,

AND FOREVER.

THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS THE

GIFTS AND CALLING OF GOD ARE

WITHOUT REPENTANCE.

SO YOU CAN GO DOWN THE LINE,

AND YOU CAN GET A CONCORDE

NCE AND LOOK UP SOMEWHAT I'M

SAYING.

ALL OF THOSE BASICALLY SAY

JESUS DIDN'T STOP AT THE

FIRST CENTURY.

WHEN THE BIBLE CANON WAS SET

UP AND SEALED OFF,

EVERYTHING STOPPED.

THAT'S NONSENSE.

IT GOES CONTRARY TO THE

BIBLE.

JESUS IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

HIS POWER IS FOREVER.

THE GIFTS AND CALLING OF GOD

ARE WITHOUT REPENTANCE.

I WOULD THAT YOU SPOKE IN

TONGUES.

I THANK MY GOD THAT I SPEAK

IN TONGUES MORE THAN YOU

ALL.

IN 1 CORINTHIANS 14, HE

GIVES THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT, THE GIFTS OF

THE SPIRIT.

THE WHOLE NEW TESTAMENT WAS

BASED ON PEOPLE MOVING IN

THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

AND WE SHOULD BE NEW

TESTAMENT TODAY.

AND IF YOU'RE CHURCH DOESN'T

TEACH THESE THINGS, GO

SOMEWHERE WHERE THEY BELIEVE

IN THE POWER OF GOD AND GET

FREE.

Wendy: MARY WRITES,

"WHAT DOES THE VERSE "MY

PEOPLE PERISH BECAUSE OF

LACK OF KNOWLEDGE -- IS GOD

REFERRING TO JEWISH OR THE

BELIEVERS?"

Pat: THEY HAVE LACK OF

KNOWLEDGE.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND HIS

WORD.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND HIS

RULES.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND HIS

RELATIONSHIP TO MANKIND.

THEY PERISH FOR LACK OF

KNOWLEDGE.

JESUS SAW THEM AND SAID THEY

WERE LIKE SHEEP WITHOUT A

SHEPHERD.

MY PEOPLE

PERISH FOR LACK OF

KNOWLEDGE.

Wendy: JENNA WRITES, "I

RECENTLY GRADUATED FROM

NURSING SCHOOL AND PASSED MY

STATE BOARDS.

I'M LOOKING FOR A FULL-TIME

JOB.

HOWEVER, I FEEL LIKE I'M A

LITTLE DISTANT FROM MY

FAMILY AND MY FAITH.

I FEEL LIKE I AM DOING WHAT

GOD WANTS, BUT I ALSO FEEL

LIKE I'M MAKING A MISTAKE.

PLEASE HELP ME.

I FEEL LIKE I NEED A PUSH IN

THE RIGHT DIRECTION TO KEEP

THE FAITH."

Pat: WHAT IS GOD SAYING

TO YOU?

HE WILL LEAD YOU AND GUIDE

YOU IF YOU ASK FOR HIS

GUIDANCE.

AND IF HE IS LEADING YOU

INTO NURSING, IF THAT'S WHAT

IS IN YOUR LIFE AND HEART,

THERE IS NO REASON YOU

SHOULD GO DISTANT FROM YOUR

PEOPLE, ANYMORE THAN IF YOU

TOOK A JOB AS A BOOKKEEPER.

YOU GO TO WORK AND YOU GO TO

WORK NINE TO FIVE -- OF

COURSE IN NURSING, YOU MAY

HAVE TO WORK LONGER HOURS.

BUT THERE IS NO REASON YOU

HAVE TO NEGLECT YOUR FAMILY

AT THE SAME TIME.

YOU READ ISAIAH 58, AND IT

TALKS ABOUT SEEING YOUR

RELATIVES AND FRIENDS.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

DOING THAT.

Wendy: C.J. WRITES, "I

HAVE A FRIEND WHO SAYS THAT

THE BIBLE WAS ASSEMBLED BY

CONSTANTINE OR THOSE SEEKING

TO APPEASE HIM, AND PARTS OF

THE BIBLE WERE THROWN OUT

THAT DIDN'T BELIEVE WITH HIS

PERSONAL BELIEF.

IS THAT TRUE?

WHAT PROOF DO WE HAVE AS

CHRISTIANS THAT WE ARE

REALLY READING THE WORD OF

GOD?"

Pat: THIS BUSINESS

ABOUT CONSTANTINE IS

NONSENSE.

WE TOOK, IN THE CHRISTIAN

CHURCH, THE CANON THAT WAS

ASCRIBED BY THE JEWS.

WHEN A JEWISH SCRIBE WAS

COPYING THE TORAH, HE

COUNTED EVERY CONSONANT.

AND IF ONE OF THEM WAS OFF

OUT OF THOUSANDS, THEY TORE

UP THE WHOLE MANUSCRIPT AND

WENT BACK AND DID IT OVER

AGAIN.

THEY WERE THAT CAREFUL.

SO WE TOOK THE CANON THAT

WAS ESTABLISHED OVER A

COUPLE THOUSAND YEARS IN THE

JEWISH LIFE.

THAT WAS WHERE THE OLD

TESTAMENT SCRIPTURE COMES

FROM.

THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS PUT

TOGETHER AS YOU GO BACK OVER

THE FIRST COUPLE HUNDRED

YEARS IN THE CHURCH.

THE CHURCH BEGAN TO ASSEMBLE

DOCUMENTS THAT THEY SAID

WENT BACK TO THE APOSTLES.

IT HAD THE RING OF APOSTOLIC

AUTHENTICITY.

YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS THE REAL

STUFF AND WHAT ISN'T.

IT IS SO EASY WHEN YOU BEGIN

TO UNDERSTAND THE

PRINCIPLES.

WE HAVE GONE BACK TO THE

VERY BEST DOCUMENTS.

WE HAVE DODICES, WITH HAVE

THE VATICAN, AND ALEXANDER

AND WASHINGTON AND SO

FOREVER, BIG CODICES FROM

THE EARLY TESTAMENT.

IT VALIDATES WHAT WE HAVE.

SO WE CAN BELIEVE THAT THE

BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD,

AND I'M WILLING TO LIVE WITH

IT.

WE'RE GOING TO START

SOMETHING TODAY THAT I THINK

YOU WILL FIND AN INTERESTING

THING.

WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S LAST BLESSING.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THAT

EVERY DAY.

AND THE BLESSING COMES FROM

PSALM 103: "BLESS THE LORD,

OH, MY SOUL, WHO FORGIVES

ALL YOUR INIQUITIES, WHO

HEALS ALL YOUR DISEASES, WHO

REDEEMS YOUR LIFE FROM

DESTRUCTION, WHO CROWNS YOU

WITH LOVING KINDNESS AND

TENDER MERCIES."

THAT'S YOUR BLESSING FOR

TODAY.

Wendy: THAT'S ONE OF MY

FAVORITE SCRIPTURES IN THE

WHOLE BIBLE.

I LOVE THAT ONE.

Pat: FOLKS, THAT'S ALL

OF THE TIME WE'VE GOT.

WE APPRECIATE YOU BEING WITH

US.

AND ON THURSDAY OF "THE 700

CLUB," I HAVE HAD THE

PRIVILEGE OF READING SCOTT

WALKER'S BOOK OVER THE

WEEKEND, AND IT IS

FASCINATING, WHAT THIS GUY

WENT THROUGH.

HE IS THE SON OF A PASTOR.

HE WENT THROUGH A VICIOUS

RECALL.

IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE, AND

YET HE CAME THROUGH LIKE

GOLD.

SCOTT WALKER, GOVERNOR OF

WISCONSIN, IS GOING TO JOIN

US TOMORROW.

YOU LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

WE'LL SEE YO

U TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
