On CBN News Today, Nov. 26: Winter storm wreaks havoc on holiday travel; Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warns of Iranian 'fallout,' and more. Read Transcript


THANKS FOR JOINING US

WITH CBN NEWS TODAY, I'M

CHARLENE ISRAEL.

A POWERFUL WINTER STORM

SYSTEM IS DUMPING HEAVY RAIN

AND SNOW ACROSS A LARGE PART

OF THE COUNTRY.

THE ICY WEATHER IS ALREADY

BLAMED FOR AT LEAST EIGHT

DEATHS AND IT IS NOW MOVING

EAST, WREAKING HAVOC FOR

THANKSGIVING TRAVELLERS.

IT IS A PRE-THANKSGIVING

WAVE OF ARCTIC COLD, AND IT

IS WREAKING HAVOC ON THE

ROADS.

IT IS SLICK.

I MEAN, THERE IS A LOT OF

SNOW ON TOP OF ICE THAT IS

JUST BEING, YOU KNOW, PACKED

ON THE MORE CARS ARE RIDING

OVER IT.

OUR CAR WAS FREEZING, AND

THEY'RE SLIDING ALL OVER THE

ROAD.

Reporter: ONE ACCIDENT

IN OKLAHOMA CITY WAS EVEN

VIDEOTAPED ON A DASH CAM.

WATCH AS HIS S.U.V. SLIDES

OFF THE ROAD AND TUMBLES

OVER.

THANKFULLY NO ONE WAS HURT

IN THAT INCIDENT.

BUT OTHER ACCIDENTS HAVE

TURNED DEADLY.

AS SNOW-COVERED ICY ROADS

HAVE CAUSED HUNDREDS OF

WRECKS.

AREAS IN COLORADO, UTAH,

ARIZONA, AND NEW MEXICO HAVE

SEEN UP TO FOUR INCHES OF

SNOW.

IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NEVADA,

A MASSIVE TWO FEET OF SNOW

LEFT MOST RESIDENTS WITHOUT

POWER.

I'VE LOST IT THREE TIMES

A DAY ON AVERAGE.

IT HAS BEEN OUT SINCE 5:00

THIS MORNING.

NOW THE STORM MOVES

THROUGH THE SOUTHWEST.

HUNDREDS OF FLIGHTS WERE

CANCELLED AT DALLAS- FORT

WORTH AS CREWS CRAM BELD TO

DE-ICE THE PLANES.

METEOROLOGIST EXPECT THE

STORM SYSTEM TO AFFECT EVEN

MORE TRAVEL AS IT HEADS

SOUTH AND EAST, THREATENING

PLANS FOR TUESDAY AND

WEDNESDAY.

AS PEOPLE HIT THE ROADS AND

AIRPORTS FOR SOME OF THE

BUSIEST TRAVEL DAYS OF THE

YEAR.

A.A.A. ESTIMATES MORE THAN

43 MILLION AMERICANS WILL

TRAVEL 50 OR MORE MILES FROM

HOME FROM WEDNESDAY TO

DECEMBER 1st.

IRAN'S LEADERS ARE SELLING

BRATEIN SELLING --

CELEBRATING THE NEW NUCLEAR

DEAL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA CALLED

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU AND

DISCUSSED THE AGREEMENT.

BUT AS CHRIS MITCHELL

REPORTS FROM JERUSALEM,

ISRAELI LEADERS FEEL THE

DEAL IS A DANGEROUS ONE.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE BRIEFED REPORTERS ON

THE CALL BETWEEN PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND PRIME MINISTER

NETANYAHU.

NETANYAHU SAID REPEATEDLY

THE DEAL IS A DANGEROUS ONE

FOR THE JEWISH STATE.

ISRAEL HAS MANY FRIENDS

AND ALLIES, BUT WHEN THEY'RE

MISTAKEN, IT IS MY

OBLIGATION TO SPEAK OUT

CLEARLY AND OPENLY AND SAY

SO.

IT IS MY SOLEMN

RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT

AND DEFEND THE ONE AND ONLY

JEWISH STATE.

Reporter: NETANYAHU

SAYS ISRAEL IS NOT OBLIGATED

TO THE DEAL.

AND ISRAELI LEADERS ARE

EMPHASIZING THAT ALL

OPTIONS, INCLUDING A

MILITARY ONE, ARE ON THE

TABLE.

NOW U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE

KERRY MUST CONVINCE HIS

FORMER SENATE COLLEAGUES

THIS IS A GOOD DEAL.

I BELIEVE CONGRESS WILL

RECOGNIZE THAT THIS DEAL

ACTUALLY HAS A GREAT DEAL OF

BENEFIT IN IT.

Reporter: SOME REMAIN

UNCONVINCED.

NOTHING IN THIS DEAL

REQUIRES THE DESTRUCTION OF

ANY CENTRIFUGES, AND THEY'RE

GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE

TO REPLACE CENTRIFUGES THAT

BECOME INOPERABLE, AND I

JUST DON'T SEE THIS MOVEMENT

IN THE DIRECTION OF

PREVENTING IRAN FROM

DEVELOPING A NUCLEAR WEAPON

AT ALL.

Reporter: ALREADY THERE

IS A DISAGREEMENT OVER ONE

OF THE AGREEMENTS KEY

PROVISIONS, THE RIGHT TO

ENRICH URANIUM.

THERE IS NO RIGHT TO

ENRICH.

WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE A RIGHT

TO ENRICH.

IT IS CLEAR IN THE N.P.T.,

THE NON-PROLIFERATION

TREATY.

IT IS VERY CLEAR THERE IS NO

RIGHT TO ENRICH.

Reporter: BUT IRAN'S

PRESIDENT SEES THE RIGHT TO

ENRICH URANIUM AS THE

KEYSTONE TO THIS AGREEMENT,

AND SAYS THE WORLD POWERS

HAVE RECOGNIZED IRAN'S

NUCLEAR RIGHTS.

NO MATTER WHAT

INTERPRETATIONS ARE GIVEN,

IRAN'S RIGHT TO ENRICHMENT

HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED IN THE

TEXT OF THE AGREEMENT.

FOR THAT REASON I ANNOUNCE

TO THE IRANIAN NATION THAT

IRAN'S ENRICHMENT ACTIVITY

WILL CONTINUE AS BEFORE.

Reporter: THIS IS AN

INTERIM AGREEMENT, BUT

IRAN'S FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS

NEGOTIATIONS FOR THE NEXT

PHASE COULD BEGIN IN JUST A

FEW WEEKS.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

IN THE U.S., LAWMAKERS

FROM BOTH PARTIES SAY

THEY'RE SKEPTICAL IRAN WILL

STICK TO A NEW NUCLEAR

DEAL.

THEY WANT THEM TO BEEF UP

PENALTIES IN THE AGREEMENT

FALLS APART.

CANADIANS FOREIGN MINISTER

SAYS IRAN HAS NOT PROVEN IT

CAN BE TRUSTED YET, SO

CANADA WILL KEEP ITS

SANCTIONS IN PLACE.

THE U.S. DEAL WITH IRAN OVER

ITS NUCLEAR PROGRAM SHOULD

HAVE INCLUDED THE RELEASE OF

PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS.

THAT'S THE WORD FROM THE

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND

JUSTICE.

THEY SAY THE U.S. SHOULD

HAVE REQUIRED IRAN TO

RELEASE PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI

AND OTHER AMERICANS.

JAY SECULO SAYS PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND SECRETARY OF STATE

JOHN KERRY TURNED THEIR

BACKS ON FELLOW AMERICANS.

A FEDERAL JUDGE STRUCK DOWN

A 1951 LAW THAT GIVES

MEMBERS OF THE CLERGY

TAX-FREE HOUSING

ALLOWANCES.

THE FREEDOM FROM RELIGION

FOUNDATION FILED SUIT SAYING

THE LAW UNCONSTITUTIONALLY

ESTABLISHES RELIGION.

IT SAYS IT PROVIDES A

BENEFIT TO RELIGIOUS PERSONS

AND NO ONE ELSE, EVEN THOUGH

DOING SO IS NOT NEEDED TO

ALLEVIATE A SPECIAL BURDEN.

BUT THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST

COMMUNITY SAID WITHOUT THE

HOUSING ALLOWANCES, SMALL

CONGREGATIONS MAY NOT BE

ABLE TO AFFORD MINISTERS.

THE AIR FORCE ACADEMY HAS

TAKEN MORE STEPS TO COMPLY

WITH THE DEMANDS OF

ATHEISTS.

CBN NEWS ALREADY REPORTED

THAT I THINK THEISTS FORCED

THE ACADEMY TO BACK AWAY

FROM USING THE PHRASE "SO

HELP ME GOD," AT THE END OF

THE CADET OATH.

AND IT IS NOT JUST GIVING

THE CADETS THE CHANCE TO OPT

OUT, OFFICIALS HAVE EVEN

REMOVED THE PHRASE FROM

HANDBOOKS AND HAVE PULLED

DOWN A POSTER THAT INCLUDED

GOD.

EARLIER THIS WEEK, 28

CONGRESSMAN AND WOMAN WROTE

TO THE AIR FORCE ACADEMY,

TELLING THEM TO PULLING GOD

FROM THE HANDBOOK VIOLATES

THE LAW.

THE CITY OF PORTLAND,

OREGON, HAS BEEN ORDERED TO

PAY $19,000 TO A CITY

EMPLOYEE OVER RELIGIOUS

HARASSMENT.

KELLY SAYS HER CO-WORKER

EXPLAINE COMPLAINED WHEN

SHE SAID GOD BLESS YOU AFTER

A SNEEZE.

AND THE CO-WORKER

SAID, QUOTE,"I'M TIRED OF

YOUR CHRISTIAN ATTITUDE,"

AND SHE CALLED GOD "A

FIGMENT OF HER

IMAGINATION."

A FEDERAL JURY RULED IN HER

FAVOR, SAYING HER WORKPLACE

WAS HO HOSTILE TO HER

RELIGION.

IT IS A FORM OF MODERN DAY

SLAVERY, AND THE VICTIMS

COME FROM EVERY BACKGROUND

AND RACE.

ONE MAN HAS MADE IT HIS

MISSION TO BRING AWARENESS

TO THE FACT IT HAPPENING

RIGHT HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: HUMAN

TRAFFICKING IS ONE OF THE

MOST HEINOUS CRIMES IN THE

U.S.

IT'S GROWTH IS STAGGERING.

AND MOST AMERICANS DON'T

EVEN KNOW IT COULD BE GOING

ON RIGHT IN THEIR OWN HOME

TOWN.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING

COMING FROM THAILAND OR CAM

B CAMBODIA OR ANYWHERE

ELSE.

IT IS HERE IN OUR OWN

COUNTRY.

Reporter: ANDREW ADMITS

HE HAD NO IDEA OF THAT

REALITY UNTIL ONE DAY HE

READ AN ARTICLE.

IT WAS AN ARTICLE ABOUT A

GIRL WHO HAD A DREAM TO BE A

MODEL, AND SHE WAS SUCKED

INTO THE TRAFFICKING WORLD.

I HAD ANGER INSIDE.

Reporter: ENLISTING THE

HELP OF HIS BROTHER, MATTHEW

WALLACE, AND LONG TIME

FRIEND, JESSE CUMMINS, THE

THREE SET OUT TO FIGHT THIS

BATTLE.

THEIR MISSION "WINNING LOVE

FOR THE UNLOVED."

THE GUYS SAID THEY WANTED TO

CREATE CONVERSATION ABOUT

TRAFFICKING, AND WHAT BETTER

WAY THAN TO RIDE ACROSS THE

COUNTRY ON BIKES.

BIKES JE GENERATE

CURIOSITY.

AND THEY GO, YOU WENT HOW

FAR?

YOU'RE DOING IT FOR HUMAN

TRAFFICKING?

YOU MUST REALLY CARE ABOUT

THIS.

IT CREATES A PLATFORM.

Reporter: THEY STARTED

AT THE MOST NORTHWESTERN

POINT OF THE COUNTRY, AND

PEDALLED 4,497 TO VIRGINIA

BEACH, VIRGINIA.

WE MET UP WITH THEM AS THEY

CELEBRATED THE END OF THEIR

JOURNEY.

ALONG THE WAY, THEY STOPPED

TO SPEAK WITH

ANTI-TRAFFICKING

ORGANIZATIONS.

AND IN SOME CASES, VICTIMS.

WHAT I'VE LEARNED IS

SLAVERY IS A COMMUNITY

ISSUE.

IT IS AN ISSUE THAT IS

UNIQUELY POISED TO BE SOLVED

BY CHRISTIANS.

IT IS HARD TO FIGHT DARKNESS

WITH DARKNESS, AND WE SHARE

THE LIGHT.

THEY REACHED ACROSS THE

NATION, AND THEY'RE REACHING

ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE.

THEY'RE YOUNGER GUYS.

HAVING THREE YOUNG GUYS

STAND UP FOR THIS CAUSE IS

REALLY WONDERFUL.

HAVING THEM IN THIS CAUSE IS

WONDERFUL.

WE FEEL LIKE HE IS RISING

UP HIS PEOPLE IN THIS HOUR

TO HEAR THE CRY.

THE PEOPLE IN ISRAEL ARE

SAYING, WILL YOU BE THAT

MOSES FOR ME.

I CALL YOU TO HELP BRING

THEM OUT.

Reporter: ANDREW,

JESSE, AND MATTHEW ARE

PRODUCING A DOCUMENTARY

ABOUT THEIR JOURNEY.

ONE THEY HOPE WILL OPEN EYES

AND HEARTS TO HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

I HOPE IT INSPIRES

INDIVIDUALS TO SAY THIS IS A

HUGE PROBLEM, AND 27 MILLION

PEOPLE IN SLAVERY IS REALLY

RIDICULOUS AND DARK.

BUT IF I STAND UP AND DO

JUST THE SMALLEST THING, IT

CAN END.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS, VIRGINIA

BEACH, VIRGINIA.

COMING UP, CHRISTIANS AND

JEWS JOIN FORCES TO HELP

TYPHOON VICTIMS IN THE

PHILIPPINES.

Charlene:

"OPERATION BLESSING" SPENT

THE WEEKEND HELPING VICTIMS

OF THE TORNADOES THAT

RAVAGED WASHINGTON,

ILLINOIS, MORE THAN A WEEK

AGO.

ON SATURDAY, 121 VOLUNTEERS

SHOWED UP TO HELP IN THE

HARDEST-HIT AREAS.

MANY BRAVED TEMPERATURES

BELOW 20°.

ONE O.B. VOLUNTEER HELPED A

RESIDENT FIND A PRICELESS

FAMILY HEIRLOOM.

WE'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR IT

SINCE SUNDAY, SINCE THIS

WHOLE THING STARTED.

I HAD A COUPLE OF THINGS I

REALLY, REALLY WAS LOOKING

FOR, AND THAT WAS ONE OF

THEM.

I SAID THIS IS WHAT WE'RE

LOOKING FOR.

AND WE PRAYED, PLEASE HELP

US FIND THIS THING IN

PARTICULAR.

AND LITERALLY 10 MINUTES

LATER, EMILY BROUGHT OVER

THIS CASE, AND SAID, IS THIS

WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?

AND IT WAS ABSOLUTELY WHAT

WE WERE LOOKING FOR.

Charlene: AND THAT IS

ONE OF MANY STORIES OF

HOPE.

MANY LOCALS SAY THEY'VE BEEN

BLESSED AND STRENTHENED

BECAUSE O.B. VOLUNTEERS HAVE

CARED FOR THEIR LOSSES AS IF

THEY WERE THEIR OWN.

RELIEF AGENCIES ACROSS THE

WORLD ARE RESPONDING TO HELP

VICTIMS OF TYPHOON HAIYAN IN

THE PHILIPPINES.

INCLUDING A PARTNERSHIP OF

CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.

JOHN WAGGI RORNT REPORTS ON

A NEW TEAM EFFORT BETWEEN

CBN DISASTER RELIEF AND AN

ISRAELI GROUP HELPING

FILIPINOS DEAL WITH THE

TRAUMATIC.

Reporter: A FOUR-PERSON

TEAM LEFT FOR THE

PHILIPPINES.

OUR FIRST MISSION IS FOR

MEDICAL.

AND THEY CAME BACK, AND NOW

WE WANT TO CREATE A PROGRAM

FOR THE LONG-TERM.

Reporter: THIS

COALITION INCLUDES MORE THAN

15 HUMANITARIAN AND OTHER

ISRAELI ORGANIZATIONS.

CBN'S "OPERATION BLESSING"

WILL HELP WITH LOGISTICS AND

MORE.

WE WANT TO INCORPORATE IN

THE FIELDS WITH THE LOCAL

MAYOR AND THE LOCAL

GOVERNMENT AND WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

CBN, TO MAKE THE ASSESSMENT

TOGETHER HAND BY HAND, AND

TO PLAN THE PROGRAM FOR THE

LONG-TERM, AND TO SEE WHICH

ONE TAKES WHAT PART.

Reporter: THAT WILL

INCLUDE PROGRAMS TO HELP

PEOPLE GET THEIR LIVES BACK

ON TRACK.

STARTING A SOCIAL PROGRAM

MEANS WE ARE GOING TO WORK

WITH THE PARENTS, THE

EDUCATORS, ALL OF THE PEOPLE

WHO SORT OF SEW TOGETHER THE

FABRIC OF SOCIETY.

Reporter: DR. RONI

BURGER SAYS ISRAELIS BRING A

LOT OF EXPERIENCE TO THE

TABLE.

YOU WANT TO MOBILIZE.

AND TURN A PERSON FROM BEING

A HELPLESS INDIVIDUAL TO

BEING PROACTIVE.

YOU CAN'T TAKE AWAY THE PAIN

OF LOSING SOMEONE OR A

HOUSE, BUT YOU CAN SEE THE

FUTURE AND DEVELOP HOPE.

Reporter: HE SAYS

ISRAELIS HAVE A SPECIAL

CONNECTION WITH THE

PHILIPPINES.

MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN

ISRAELI ARE CARED BY

FILIPINOS, AS MY MOTHER.

Reporter: THERE WILL

ALSO BE SACRIFICE, AS THIS

DOCTOR MUST LEAVE HER FOUR

CHILDREN IN ORDER TO SERVE

FOR SEVERAL WEEKS.

WE TAKE SOME MEDICINES,

ANTI-BOTTSMEDICINES,

ANTIBIOTICS, AND

VACCINATIONS.

BUT THE MAIN THING WE TAKE

IS US.

WE INTEND TO GIVE WHAT WE

CAN.

WE HAVE OUR KNOWLEDGE AND

GOODWILL, ACTUALLY.

Reporter: JOHN WAGGI,

CBN NEWS.

Charlene: UP NEXT,

MOTORCYCLE MAYHEM UNLEASHED

ON OUR STREETS.

WATCH HOW RECKLESS BIKERS

ARE WREAKING HAVOC ON OUR

HIGHWAYS.

AND MEET A MAN ON A MISSION

TO STOP THIS DEADLY TREND.

WREAK

Charlene: A GANG OF

STUNT BIKERS IN FULL

THROTTLE ROAD RAGE,

TERRORIZING A MOTORIST, NOT

ON THE HIGHWAY, BUT ON THE

STREETS OF NARCOTIC.

VIDEO OF THIS INCIDENT MADE

NATIONAL NEWS, BUT THIS WAS

NOT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT.

NOW ONE CHURCH IS FIGHTING

THIS DEADLY TREND BY

OFFERING BIKERS A NEW WAY OF

LIFE.

Reporter: THE VIDEO

INVOLVING BIKERS AND S.U.V.

WENT VIRAL AFTER IT WAS

POSTED ON LINE.

THE AUTHORITIES SAY THE

BIKER CHASED THE DRIVER OF

AN S.U.V. AFTER HE

ACCIDENTALLY BUMPED HIM.

THE DRIVER CALLED 9-1-1,

TELLING POLICE HE FEARED FOR

HIS LIFE.

HE THEN DROVE OFF, RUNNING

OVER BIKERS, AND CRITICALLY

INJURING ONE.

THE BIKERS ARE PART OF A

GROUP CALLED HOLLYWOOD

STUNTS, WHO PERFORM TRICKS

AND STUNTS ON THE ROAD.

THESE ARE ALSO KNOWN AS

CROTCH ROCKETS, WHICH RIDERS

MODIFY TO PERFORM THEIR

ACTS.

TELL ME ABOUT SOME OF THE

BIKES THAT CAN BE SEEN IN

THE VIDEO, THAT THE GUYS IN

NEW YORK WERE RIDING.

MOST OF THEM WERE ON

SPORTS BIKES, AND THERE WERE

SOME OTHER ONES, LIKE SUPER

MOTOS, BUT MOST WERE SPORTS

BIKES, THE X14s, BOOSTERS,

JIXERS, R-1s, THAT'S WHAT

MOST OF THEM RIDING.

WERE RIDING.

THEY CAN GO UP TO

200 MILES PER HOUR.

Charlene: THAT, SAY

POLICE, IS A PROBLEM,

RECKLESS BIKERS OUT OF

CONTROL, PUTTING EVERYONE ON

THE ROAD IN HARM'S WAY.

WE HEAR ABOUT

MOTORCYCLISTS TRAVELLING AT

A HIGH RATE OF SPEED,

SLOWING DOWN BEFORE CARS SO

THEY CAN PERFORM STUNTS.

Reporter: THIS VIDEO

POSTED ON YouTube SHOWS

A BIKER AVOIDING A POLICE

BLOCKADE AFTER PERFORMING A

WHEELY FOR THREE MILES.

THE POLICE ARE OFTEN UNABLE

TO PURSUE THE BIKERS BECAUSE

THEY CAN OUTMANEUVER THE

POLICE CARS.

IF YOU'RE IN A CAR AND

YOU'RE RIDING DOWN THE ROAD,

THE FIRST THING YOU THINK IS

THAT'S A GROUP I WANT TO BE

AROUND.

THEY HAVE THAT NEGATIVE

CONNOTATION AROUND THEM,

THAT THEY'RE A BUNCH OF BAD

BOYS, AND THEY'RE DOING BAD

THINGS OUT THERE, AND SOME

OF THEM ARE.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

IN CHESAPEAKE, VIRGINIA, IS

ON A MISSION TO HELP CHANGE

THAT IMAGE.

THROUGH HIS MINISTRY CALLED

FREEDOM BIKER CHURCH.

GOD HAS BROUGHT US HERE

TO SHOW US YOU CAN STILL

RIDE A MOTORCYCLE AND LOVE

THE LORD.

Reporter: HE FOUND

JESUS WHEN HE WAS IN HIS

30s.

HE USES THE MOTORCYCLE AS A

VEHICLE FOR SHARING THE LOVE

OF GOD.

WE'RE A BIKER CHURCH, AND

WE LIKE THE FREEDOM OF

RIDING THE ROAD.

LET'S PAINT A ROAD DOWN THE

CENTER OF THE AISLE, AND

THEY COME DOWN THAT ROAD TO

FREEDOM, WHETHER IT IS FOR

PRAYER OR TO GIVE THEIR

HEART AND SOUL TO CHRIST.

Reporter: A BIG CHANGE

FROM THE ROWDY SPOT IT ONCE

WAS.

IT WAS A BIG OLD COWBOY

BAR WHEN I USED TO GO HERE.

THIS IS A PLACE THAT

SATAN HAD A HOLD OF FOR

QUITE SOMETIME.

AND GOD HAD US COME IN AND

TAKE THIS BUILDING BACK AND

THIS PROPERTY.

AND I'M GOING TO TAKE THIS

PLACE AND ASK IT TO BE A

HOUSE OF GOD.

AND WE'RE GOING TO REACH

PEOPLE FOR CHRIST.

Reporter: OUTREACH TO

UNCHURCHED BIKERS HAS BEEN

THE KEY TO THE CHURCH'S

GROWTH AND SUCCESS.

MEMBERS OF FREEDOM BIKER

CHURCH ARE A BROTHERHOOD OF

BIKERS PASSIONATE ABOUT THE

OPEN ROAD AND ABOUT SHARING

THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS

CHRIST.

WE OPERATE THE SAME WAY

AS A MOTORCYCLE CLUB.

THE ONLY THING IS WE DO IT

FOR GOD.

BIKERS STILL NEED TO BE

SAVED.

SOMEBODY NEEDS TO GO OUT

THERE AND WITNESS TO THEM.

AND THEY'LL RECEIVE US MORE

THAN PEOPLE IN THREE-PIECE

SUITS.

WE'LL SHOW UP SOME PLACE,

AND, PEOPLE, AGAIN, WHETHER

THEY'RE BIKERS OR

NON-BIKERS, WILL LOOK AT US,

AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT,

THEY'RE SITTING AT THE TABLE

WITH US, TALKING, AND IT'S A

PRETTY AWESOME THING.

Reporter: AWESOME AND

LIFE CHANGING.

MARRIAGES HAVE BEEN

RESTORED.

WE HAD A GENTLEMAN HERE WHO

CAME HERE ONE SUNDAY

MORNING, AND THIS WAS GOING

TO BE HIS LAST SUNDAY AT

CHURCH.

AND IT WOULD BE HIS LAST

SUNDAY ON THIS EARTH.

HE MADE A DECISION HE IS

GOING TO COME TO CHURCH ONE

MORE TIME, AND AFTER THAT HE

WAS HEADING HOME AND WAS

GOING TO COMMIT SUICIDE.

HE GAVE HIS HEART AND SOUL

TO CHRIST, AND GOD CHANGED

HIM AND HE IS OUT THERE

DOING GREAT THINGS FOR GOD.

Reporter: TIMOTHY HAS A

SIMILAR STORY.

WHEN I CAME TO THIS

CHURCH, I WAS GOING THROUGH

A LOT OF PERSONAL ISSUES.

SINCE I'VE COME HERE, I'VE

BEEN SAVED AND BAPTIZED.

IF IT WASN'T FOR THE CHURCH

AND HAVING GOD IN MY LIFE, I

DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD HAVE

MADE IT THROUGH IT.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

MANY POINT OUT THAT THE

ACTIONS OF THE BIKES KERS IN

THE NEW YORK INCIDENT DO NOT

REFLECT THE CHARACTER OF

MOST BIKERS.

MOST BIKERS ARE

LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS.

IT IS THE 1% THAT WE TRY TO

KEEP UNDER CONTROL.

WE JUST GET TOGETHER AND

WE RIDE.

WE'RE NOT A BIKE CLUB.

WE'RE A GROUP.

Reporter: OR A GANG?

WE'RE NOT A GANG OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

JUST A BUNCH OF GUYS THAT

GET TOGETHER AND RIDE AND

HAVE A GOOD TIME.

Reporter: PASTOR RAULS

SAYS FREEDOM BIKER CHURCH

ISN'T JUST FOR BIKERS.

AND BIKERS SAY WHILE THE

ATMOSPHERE IS WHAT DRAWS

THEM, IT IS THE CHURCH'S

MESSAGE THAT KEEPS THEM

RIDING FOR GOOD.

Charlene: THE

MEDITERRANEAN DIET COULD

HELP YOU LIVE A LONGER,

HEALTHIER LIFE.

RESEARCHERS FOUND PEOPLE WHO

ATE SUCH A DIET HAD A 40%

BETTER CHANCE OF LIVING PAST

70.

THE RESEARCHERS STUDIED MORE

THAN 10,000 WOMEN OVER A

PERIOD OF ABOUT 15 YEARS.

THEY STAYED HEALTHY AND

DIDN'T HAVE DISEASES LIKE

CANCER, STROKE, HEART

DISEASE, AND DIABETES.

THE DIET CONSISTS OF FOODS

LIKE VEGETABLES, WHOLE

GRAINS, BEANS AND OLIVE OIL,

AND LESS RED AND PROCESSED

MEATS, ALONG WITH LESS

ALCOHOL.

IF YOU WANT TO LIVE LONGER,

YOU CAN ALSO ADD NUTS TO

YOUR DIET.

THE STUDY FOUND THAT PEOPLE

WHO ATE THEM ROUGHLY EVERY

DAY WERE 20% LESS LIKELY TO

DIE THAN THOSE WHO DIDN'T.

FOUR PEOPLE WHO ATE NUTS

SEVEN OR MORE TIMES A WEEK,

THE RISK OF DYING FROM HEART

DISEASE DROPPED BY 29%.

AND THE RISK OF DYING FROM

CANCER FELL 11%.

THE BENEFITS CAME FROM

PEANUTS, PISTACHIOS,

ALMONDS, AND OTHER TREE

NUTS.

AND NUT EATERS STAY SLIMMER,

TOO.

SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.

YOU CAN FIND MORE OF OUR

ISSUES YOU CARE MOST ABOUT

AT cbnnews.com, AND TELL

US ABOUT THE STORIES YOU

HAVE SEEN TODAY.

YOU CAN DO IT AS Facebook

OR AT CBN NEWS ON TWITTER.

JOIN US NEXT TIME.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.

GOD BLESS.
