The 700 Club - Dec. 3, 2013

All the success in the world couldn't fill the hole in Carrie's heart. Plus, Eddy & Marsha lost their jobs, but their faith in God never wavered. Read Transcript


I WAS ON THE SET WITH

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, I WAS

IN A MOVIE WITH DUVAN.

SHE WAS A TOUGH HOLLYWOOD

PUBLICIST WHO MARRIED AN NFL

STAR.

MY HUSBAND IS

GOOD-LOOKING, AND, STILL, IT

IS NOT ENOUGH.

HOW SHE FOUND WHAT SHE

WAS LOOKING FOR IN AN

UNLIKELY PLACE.

IT WAS LIKE THE UNITED

NATIONS OF A SORT OF

"GLEE".

*

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

SO HAPPY TO HAVE ALL OF YOU

WITH US TODAY.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

WONDERFUL PROGRAM FOR YOU.

I GUESS WE START IN THE NEWS

WITH THINGS YOU'RE SICK

ABOUT HEARING.

BUT IF YOU HAVE INSURANCE

AND YOU'RE TRYING TO GET

HEALTH CARE AND YOU FIND

THAT THE PRICES YOU SPEND ON

DRUGS HAVE GONE UP, THE

PRICES OF HOSPITALS HAVE

GONE UP, THE AVAILABILITY OF

HOSPITALS HAS GONE DOWN --

THAT'S JUST PART OF THE

FALLOUT FROM THE SO-CALLED

"AFFORDABLE CARE ACT."

BUT AFTER IT FAILS, WHAT DO

THEY DO?

THEY SAY, WELL, LET'S DOUBLE

DOWN.

WE JUST DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH

GOVERNMENT.

WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT.

AND WE'LL SEE HOW THAT WORKS

OUT.

BUT AS WE SAID YESTERDAY,

THERE IS SOME CONSPIRACY

THEORISTS, AND MAYBE THEY'RE

NOT JUST THEORISTS, BUT THEY

THINK THE REAL GAME IS TO

CRASH THIS THING,.

Terry: IF WE GET MORE

GOVERNMENT, APPARENTLY THAT

IS GOING TO TAKE A PROGRAM

CALLED "SINGLE PAIR."

PAUL STRAND HAS A LOOK AT

THAT.

Reporter: SOME CRITICS

WARN THAT OBAMACARE WITH ITS

THOUSANDS OF PAGES OF

MANDATES, RULES, AND

REGULATIONS, IS SURE TO

CAUSE INSURERS TO HIKE THEIR

PRICES SO HIGH, MANY PEOPLE

WILL HAVE TO FLEE THEM.

AND THEN THERE IS SOMETHING

CALLED THE DEATH SPIRAL

WHICH PEOPLE WARN COULD

CRASH OBAMACARE.

IF YOUNGER PEOPLE DON'T

BUY INSURANCE, THE OLDER GET

OLDER AND SICKER, AND THE

YOUNGER DROP OUT, AND THE

WHOLE SYSTEM COLLAPSES.

Reporter: SOME LIBERALS

SAY THAT THE PROBLEMS WITH

OBAMACARE IS THAT THE

COUNTRY SHOULD GO TO A

DIFFERENT SYSTEM, A SINGLE

PAYER PLAN, WITH GOVERNMENT

BEING THE SIPPING GE SINGLE

PAYER FOR HEALTH CARE.

ESSENTIALLY SINGLE-PAYER

IS THE GOVERNMENT OPERATING

FOR OVER.

Reporter: MANY SENATORS

WANTED SINGLE PAYER.

HARRY REID SAID --

DON'T THINK WE DIDN'T

HAVE A TREMENDOUS NUMBER OF

PEOPLE WHO WANTED

SINGLE-PAYER SYSTEM.

President Obama: I

HAPPEN TO BE A PROPONENT OF

SINGLE-PAYER UNIVERSAL

HEALTH CARE PLANS.

Reporter: BUT CRITICS

WARN SINGLE PAYER HAS

SERIOUS PROBLEMS.

WE REALLY CAN'T AFFORD

THIS.

Reporter: THAT WOULD

MEAN THE U.S. TAXES WOULD

HAVE TO GO UP, WAY UP.

PAUL ROBERT GREGORY WRITES,

"AMERICANS WOULD HAVE TO PAY

ABOUT 45% OF THEIR INCOME ON

TAXES."

A SINGLE-PAYER WOULD

SIMPLY BANKRUPT THE

COUNTRY.

SO IT IS GOING TO HAVE TO

LIMIT CARE IN SOME WAYS.

THAT IS GOING TO BE

ARBITRARY, TOP-DOWN

RATIONING, IF YOU WILL.

Reporter: TANNER POINTS

TO THE PROBLEMS SOME

COUNTRIES HAVE WITH SINGLE

PAYER.

LIKE BRITAIN.

THERE ARE ABOUT 70,000

PEOPLE WAITING FOR HOSPITALS

FOR SURGERIES.

THEY CANCELLED ABOUT 50,000

SURGERIES EVERY YEAR BECAUSE

THE PATIENT GOT TOO SICK ON

THE WAITING LIST, WAITING TO

GO FORWARD.

YOU TALK ABOUT BRITAIN,

HOW IS YOU PROPOSAL GOING TO

REDUCE THE WAITING LIST.

IN CANADA TODAY, THERE IS

ABOUT 800,000 PEOPLE ON THE

WAITING LIST.

AND NO LESS THAN THE

CANADIAN SUPREME COURT,

HARDLY KNOWN AS A RIGHT-WING

ORGANIZATION, IN A 2005 CASE

SAID THAT SOME PEOPLE WERE

GOING TO DIE WHILE ON THE

WAITING LIST UP THERE.

Reporter: WILL THE U.S.

END UP MOVING TO SINGLE

PAYER?

IT WOULD BE A TOUGH SELL.

OBAMACARE IS ALREADY PROVING

MASSIVELY UNPOPULAR.

THE PRESIDENT'S PROMISES

HAVEN'T PROVEN TRUE, AND

CRITICS SAY IS SINGLE PAYER

WOULD BE WORSE.

THE PROBLEM WITH THE

SINGLE PAYER MEANS SOMEONE

ELSE, BESIDES YOU, IS GOING

TO BE MAKING DECISIONS ABOUT

YOUR HEALTH CARE.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Pat: WELL, YOU BETTER

GET A TICKET TO VANA WATU OR

SOME PLACE REMOTE BECAUSE

THIS BUNCH OF SOCIALISTS IS

DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN.

THEY ARE DESTROYING THIS

GREAT NATION WHICH WE ALL

LOVE.

THEY ARE DESTROYING IT.

LITTLE BY LITTLE THEY'RE

DESTROYING FOREIGN POLICY,

THEY'RE DESTROYING OUR

REPUTATION AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND NOW ONE-SIXTH OF THE

AMERICAN ECONOMY IS GETTING

READY TO BE DESTROYED, BUT

THE THING IT WILL IMPACT THE

MOST IS THE PEOPLE WHO

DESPERATELY NEED TO HAVE

DOCTORS AND HEALTH CARE AND

HOSPITALS.

WE HAVE THE BEST HEALTH CARE

SYSTEM IN THE WORLD.

SURE, IT IS EXPENSIVE, AND

ONE OF THE REASONS IT IS

EXPENSIVE IS BECAUSE THE

GOVERNMENT HAS ALREADY BEEN

IN THERE.

IF YOU AND I WERE

RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING THE

BILLS THE DOCTORS CHARGE,

THE PRICE OF HEALTH CARE

WOULD COME DOWN

DRAMATICALLY.

BUT WE DON'T PAY.

I DON'T PAY.

I'VE GOT HEALTH INSURANCE.

SO THE INSURANCE COMPANY

PAYS, OR DOESN'T PAY, OR THE

GOVERNMENT COMES IN OR

DOESN'T PAY, BUT IT IS NOT

ME.

AND IT'S NOT YOU.

AND IT'S NOT THE DOCTOR

INVOLVED.

IT IS THE GOVERNMENT OR AN

INTERMEDIARY.

SO IF I GO TO THE GROCERY

STORE AND GROCERY ARE TOO

EXPENSIVE, I WON'T BUY

THEM.

BUT I DON'T KNOW -- DO YOU

KNOW -- I IMAGINE MANY

HOSPITALS DON'T KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE CHARGING FOR STUFF.

THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT

IT COSTS.

BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER

BECAUSE THEY PASS THAT ON TO

AN INSURANCE COMPANY.

I REMEMBER I HAD A KNEE

OPERATION.

I HAD A MENISCUS TEAR, AND

THEY FIXED IT.

I GET THROUGH WITH IT, AND

IT IS A SINGLE DAY DEAL, AND

I GO HOME.

THEY SAID, YOU NEED CRUTCH

THERAPY.

SO THEY HAD THREE LITTLE

STEPS, AND HERE IS A PAIR OF

CRUTCHES, AND GO UP THOSE

STEPS AND GO BACK DOWN.

I DO, BUM BOOM, BOOM, BOOM,

AND THEN SEE YOU LATER.

Terry: HOW MUCH?

Pat: I THINK IT WAS $35

CRUTCH THERAPY.

IT TOOK ABOUT FIVE MINUTES.

Terry: THAT'S MODEST

COMPARED TO TODAY.

Pat: THEY DIDN'T ASK ME

WHETHER I WANTED TO PAY FOR

IT OR NOT, AND I KNEW HOW TO

USE CRUTCHES.

IF THEY SAID THIS IS GOING

TO COST $35, I WOULD SAY

KEEP YOUR STINKIN'

CRUTCHES.

AND THE OTHER THING THAT HAS

TO BE DONE IS TORT REFORM.

THE DEMOCRATS DON'T WANT TO

HEAR ABOUT TORT REFORM.

BECAUSE THE LAWYERS' LOBBY,

THE TRIAL LAWYERS, ARE ONE

OF THE BIG FUNDERS OF

DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMEN.

AND THEY DON'T WANT TO LIMIT

THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF TORT

REFORM BECAUSE THEY'RE OUT

OF CONTROL.

YOU FIND A FEW PLACES THEY

SAY WE'RE GOING TO LIMIT

TORT RECOVERY TO ACTUAL PAIN

AND SUFFERING, ACTUAL

DAMAGES AND MEDICAL

EXPENSES, AND FORGET ALL OF

THIS PUNITIVE DAMAGE

STUFF -- IF WE DO THAT, WE

COULD SAVE A LOT OF MONEY,

BUT NOBODY IS EVEN TALKING

ABOUT THAT NOW.

GUESS WHAT?

WHEN THEY DO THE HEALTH

CARE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

NONE OTHER THAN THE FRIENDLY

I.R.S. IS GOING TO HANDLE

THE PROGRAM.

BUT THEY'VE GOT A STAND

SCANDAL ON THEIR PLATE, AND

THEY'RE NOT DEALING

Reporter: PAT, THE

CONGRESSMAN LEADING THE

INVESTIGATION INTO THE

I.R.S. IS ACCUSING THE

F.B.I. OF BLOCKING THE

INQUIRY.

THE WASHINGTON TIMES REPORTS

DADARRELL ISSA IS

THREATENED TO ISSUE

SUBPOENAS.

HE IS LOOKING INTO THE

POSSIBLE I.R.S. TARGETING OF

TEA PARTY AND OTHER

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS, HOLDING

UP THEIR TAX EXEMPT STATUS

BEFORE RECENT ELECTIONS.

IT HAS BEEN SIX MONTHS

BEFORE THE INVESTIGATION

BEGAN, AND THE F.B.I. HAS

STILL YET TO RELEASE ANY

INFORMATION, BUT IT SAYS THE

INVESTIGATION IS

CONTINUING.

CYBER MONDAY WAS A BIG

SUCCESS FOR ONLINE

RETAILERS, LOOKING TO SNAG A

PIECE OF THE SHOPPING PIE,

AND MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

TOOK ADVANTAGE OF STEEP

DISCOUNTS AND FREE

SHIPPING.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: IT IS THE

HOME STRETCH FOR HOLIDAY

SHOPPING.

CONSUMERS PROVED ON MONDAY,

EVEN AFTER A BUSY SHOPPING

WEEKEND, THERE WAS MONEY

LEFT TO SPEND.

WHEN THE TOTALS ARE ALL

ADDED UP, CYBER MONDAY SALES

ARE EXPECTED TO TOP THE

$2 BILLION MARK ACCORDING TO

COMSCORE, AND THAT'S UP 20%

THAN LAST YEAR.

CYBER MONDAY WE SEEM TO

SEE DEEPER DISCOUNTS, WHICH

IS 40% AND ABOVE.

IT IS EVERY STORE PUTTING

THEIR BEST FOOT FORWARD.

THIS DAY IS THE SINGLE

LARGEST COMMERCE DAY.

Reporter: AMAZON

OFFERED LIGHTENING DEALS

EVERY 10 MINUTES.

ON WAL-MART.COM, ONLINE

SHOPPERS COULD SNAG

AN iPAD FOR $150 OFF.

THERE WAS 40% OFF AT OLD

NAVY, AND THE LIST GOES ON.

I LIKE A DEAL, DOESN'T

EVERYBODY?

PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR

GOOD DEALS.

MONEY IS SHORT, AND TIME IS

SHORT.

AND FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO

SHOP QUICK AND EASY, IT IS

DEFINITELY BENEFICIAL.

Reporter: ONLINE

RETAILERS THAT CATER TO

SMARTPHONE USERS BENEFITED

THE MOST.

THIS YEAR MOBILE SHOPPING

ACCOUNTED FOR 30% OF ALL

ONLINE SALES.

THAT'S UP 61% FROM LAST

YEAR.

CYBER MONDAY ALSO MEANS BIG

BUSINESS FOR SHIPPING

COMPANIES.

LAST YEAR FEDEX MOVED

20 MILLION SHIPMENTS AFTER

THE BUSY ONLINE SHOPPING

DAY.

THIS YEAR THEY EXPECT TO

BREAK THAT RECORD.

TODAY WE'RE EXPECTING TO

BREAK OUR TOTALS BY MORE

THAN 10% FROM LAST YEAR.

WE'RE EXPECTING TO SHIP

22 MILLION PACKAGES TODAY.

IT IS RECORD NUMBERS FOR

US.

WE'RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE

VOLUME COMING IN.

Reporter: AND MORE

SHIPPING MEANS MORE JOBS

DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON.

LAST YEAR DURING THE

HOLIDAY SEASON, FEDEX HIRED

20,000 EMPLOYEES TO HELP OUT

FOR THE HOLIDAYS, AND THIS

YEAR WE'RE EXPECTING A

LITTLE MORE.

IT IS FANTASTIC FOR THE

ECONOMY.

IT IS CREATING JOBS.

IT IS A WIN/WIN.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

IF YOU MISSED ANY OF THE

SALES SO FAR, YOU STILL HAVE

ANOTHER CHANCE.

STORES FROM TARGET TO SEARS

ARE TURNING CYBER MONDAY

INTO CYBER-WEEK.

PAT, DID YOU TAKE ANY

ADVANTAGE OF ANY OF THOSE

DEALS?

Pat: I'M AFRAID I

MISSED THEM.

IF SOMEBODY IS LOOKING FOR

DEALS, THEY'RE OUT THERE.

JOHN, THE THINK THAT STRIKES

ME IS FEDEX SAYS IT IS GOING

TO SHIP 22 MILLION PACKAGES,

AND THEY'LL DO IT IN ONE OR

TWO DAYS.

AND THE PRESIDENT IS CROWING

ABOUT THE FACT THAT WHEN

THIS WEBSITE IS UP AND

RUNNING THEY MIGHT BE ABLE

TO HANDLE 800,000 ACCOUNTS.

I MEAN, IT IS RIDICULOUS.

PRIVATE ENTERPRISE CAN DO

IT.

GOVERNMENT CAN'T.

BUT FEDEX, AMAZON, THEY'RE

LEADING THE WAY, AND IT IS

EXTRAORDINARY HOW WELL THEY

DO.

JOHN?

WELL, SPEAKING OF AMAZON,

PAT, CONGRESS WANTS TO WEIGH

IN BEFORE ONLINE BUSINESS

LIKE AMAZON START USING

DRONES TO DELIVER ORDERS TO

YOUR HOME, BECAUSE IT WOULD

LEAD TO OTHER COMPANIES AND

INDIVIDUALS PUTTING LARGE

NUMBERS OF DRONES IN THE

AIR.

CAPITOL HILL'S CONCERNS

RANGE FROM AIR SAFETY TO

PRIVACY.

SOME SAY THEY WANT TO BE

SURE BUSINESS DRONES

WOULDN'T BE USED FOR

SURVEILLANCE ON ORDINARY

AMERICANS.

CONGRESS HAS ALREADY ASKED

THE FEDERAL AVIATION

COMMISSION TO COME UP WITH

REGULATIONS BY 2015.

AMAZON SAYS IT IS WAITING

FOR THOSE RULES BEFORE IT

STARTS PUTTING DRONES TO

USE.

THE DEATH TOLL IN THE

PHILIPPINES HAS REACHED

5700.

THE SITUATION IN THE RURAL

AREAS HAS BEEN ESPECIALLY

SEVERE, DUE TO DAMAGED

ROADS, TOPPLED POWER LINES,

AND DEBRIS THAT MAKES IT

HARD TO DELIVER MUCH-NEEDED

SUPPLIES.

BUT CBN DISASTER RELIEF IS

BRINGING AID TO THOSE WHO

DESPERATELY NEED IT.

George: TERESA AND HER

DAUGHTER HAVE MADE THIS WALK

COUNTLESS TIMES, PAST

PAINFUL REMINDERS OF TYPHOON

HAIYAN'S WRATH.

THE WINDS WERE SO

STRONG.

I QUICKLY TOOK MY DAUGHTER

AND WE GOT UNDER THIS BED.

BUT SUDDENLY THE ROOF WENT

FLYING.

George: HER HOME WAS NO

MATCH AGAINST THE STRONGEST

STORM TO EVER HIT LAND

ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

WE HAVE LOST EVERYTHING.

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE

WILL DO NOW.

George: THE GLIMMER OF

HOPE ARRIVED IN THEIR

VILLAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME.

AS A PARTIALLY SHREDDED TENT

WENT UP, AND HUNDREDS OF

FAMILIES, INCLUDING TERESA,

JOINED THE LINE TO RECEIVE

HELP FROM CBN DISASTER

RELIEF.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE

HOUSES ARE TOTALLY

DEVASTATED, AND THEY DON'T

HAVE ENOUGH FOOD TO EAT.

George: VOLUNTEERS

HANDED OUT FOOD, WATER, AND

OTHER SUPPLIES.

THIS IS A LOT.

WE HAVE ENOUGH TO LAST US

FOR SOME TIME.

George: WHILE MEDIA

ATTENTION HAS FOCUSED ON THE

DESTRUCTION OF THE CAPITAL

OF TAC TACLOBAN, RELIEF HAS

BEEN SLOW TO ARRIVE.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT IT

IS TO GET TO OUR REMOTE

VILLAGE, SO THANK YOU FOR

COMING.

George: A SENTIMENT

FROM MANY, WHO FEARED NO ONE

ELSE CARED ABOUT THEIR

PLIGHT UP HERE IN THE

MOUNTAINS.

Reporter: ARE YOU

HAPPY?

YES.

Reporter: WHY ARE YOU

HAPPY?

BECAUSE YOU CAME TO BRING

US THESE FOOD DONATIONS.

Reporter: ARE YOU GUYS

HAPPY TO GET THE FOOD?

YES, WE'RE VERY HAPPY.

Reporter: WHY ARE YOU

HAPPY?

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT

STARVING ANYMORE.

George: HERE IN THE

REMOTE PARTS OF THE

DEVASTATED AREAS, THE

MAJORITY OF THE FOLKS ARE

COCONUT FARMERS.

IT IS THEIR LIV LIVELIHOOD,

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THEIR

LIVELIHOOD HAS BEEN

DESTROYED.

TERESA IN LIVES IN A REGION

THAT IS A COCONUT FARM.

HER AND OTHERS LIVELIHOOD IS

GONE IN ONE SWOOP.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO

SURVIVE IN THE FUTURE?

George: HELPING THE

MILLIONS LIKE TERESA WHO

HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES AND

LIVELIHOODS, WILL BE A

MONUMENTAL TASK, BUT GETTING

CRITICAL AID WILL HELP

PREPARE THEM FOR THE LONG

ROAD AHEAD.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS, THE

PHILIPPINES.

PAT, THE DEVASTATION

THERE IS HARD TO

COMPREHEND.

THEY WILL DEFINITELY BE

NEEDING OUR HELP FOR A LONG

TIME.

Pat: THAT'S AN

INCREDIBLE PIECE.

GEORGE IS AN INCREDIBLE

REPORTER.

HE IS SO DEDICATED, AND IT

IS FUN TO BE WITH HIM AND

SEE WHAT HE DOES.

THE DEVASTATION, HE SHOWED

IT.

YOU GET THE HEART OF THOSE

PEOPLE, THE FILIPINOS ARE

WONDERFUL PEOPLE.

WE HAVE BEEN ON THE AIR IN

THE PHILIPPINES FOR YEARS

AND YEARS AND YEARS.

WE HAVE SO MANY FRIENDS

THERE.

AND THEY ARE SUCH GENEROUS,

LOVING, GIVING PEOPLE, AND

TO SEE THIS KIND OF

DEVASTATION BREAKS YOUR

HEART.

BUT WE ARE THERE TO HELP

THEM.

WE HAVE A MEDICAL TEAM AND

OTHERS ON THE SITE.

THESE OTHER AGENCIES JUST

AREN'T AS IN TOUCH AS WE ARE

WITH THE NATIVE SITUATION.

SO WE'RE THERE TO HELP.

AND IF YOU WANT TO HELP,

IT'S REAL EASY.

IT'S CBN'S DISASTER RELIEF

FUND, CBN CENTER, VIRGINIA

BEACH, VIRGINIA.

OR YOU CAN CALL IN,

1-800-759-0700 OR LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

THIS WOULD BE A CHANCE TO

WRITE A GENEROUS CHECK.

CHRISTMAS, YOU'RE LOOKING

FORWARD TO A WONDERFUL

CHRISTMAS, WELL, THOSE

PEOPLE NEED YOUR HELP.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK

UP THE PHONE AND CALL IN AND

SAY, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON AND WE CAN

TAKE SOMETHING

ELECTRONICALLY.

NO PROBLEM.

LET'S HELP THOSE PEOPLE.

THERE IS A TREMENDOUS NEED

AND WE'LL DO EVERYTHING WE

CAN.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP,

HITLER ONCE SAID IF YOU TELL

A LIE THAT IS BIG ENOUGH,

PEOPLE WILL ULTIMATELY COME

TO ACCEPT IT.

THOSE ARE WORDS THAT ONE OF

HIS FOLLOWERS TOOK TO

HEART.

HEAR WHAT IS BEING SPREAD

AND HOW IT IS HURTING THE

JEWS TODAY.

THAT'S NEXT.

.

Pat: THE TEMPLE MOUNT,

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT?

WELL, SOLOMON BUILT THE

TEMPLE, AND THAT WAS AN AREA

THAT DAVID BOUGHT.

WHEN THE ANGEL OF THE LORD

WAS STANDING OVER THE PLACE

WHERE THAT AREA WAS.

AND DAVID BOUGHT IT, PAID

FOR IT.

IT BELONGED TO THE JEWS.

SO SOLOMON LATER BUILT A

TEMPLE ON THAT PLACE.

AND THEN AFTER THAT WAS TORN

DOWN BY INVADERS, THE

ORTHODOX CHURN, I BELIEVE IT

WAS, BUILT A CHURCH.

THERE WAS A CHURCH THERE.

THE MUSLIMS CAME IN, TORE

THAT CHURCH DOWN, AND THEN

BUILT WHAT IS CALLED THE

DOME OF THE ROCK.

AND ADJOINING IT, NOT TOO

FAR AWAY, IS W WHAT THEY

CALL THE AL-OXMAR.

AND THE MUSLIMS SAY IT IS

THE THIRD MOST HOLIEST

PLACE.

AND THE JEWS SAY WHY?

THIS WAS BOUGHT BY KING

DAVID, AND WE WANT TO BE

ABLE TO GO UP ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT AND PRAY TO THE LORD.

WELL, AI ARIEL SHARON

WALKED UP THERE AND SAID

THIS IS MY AREA.

AND IT BEGAN WHAT IS CALLED

AN INTIFADAH WHEN THE ARABS

BEGAN TO SCREAM AND YELL

ABOUT IT.

THE ARABS ARE SAYING, WE

THINK THE JEWS ARE TRYING TO

UNDERMINE al-OXA, AND THE

JEWS SAY WE WANT TO PRAY.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT

MIGHT BE HAPPENING AS A

TRIGGER TO SOMETHING BIGGER

AND THE MIDDLE EAST.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US THE

STORY.

Reporter: IT IS ONE OF

THE MOST HOLY AND CONTESTED

PIECE OF REAL ESTATE ON

EARTH, THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

FOR DECADES, ISLAMIC LEADERS

HAVE IN SIGHTED MUSLIMS FOR

VIOLENCE BY TELLING THEM

THAT THE MOSQUE IS IN

DANGER.

FIRST THEY CLAIMED THAT THE

ISRAELIS WERE UNDERMINING

ITS FOUNDATION TO MAKE IT

COLLAPSE.

NOW THEY ALSO SAY IT IS A

THREAT, EVEN FOR JEWS TO

PRAY ON THE SACRED PLATEAU.

EXTREME MOVEMENTS BELIEVE

THAT ISRAEL IS PLANNING THE

THIRD TEMPLE, AND TO DESTROY

THEIR HOLY SHRINE.

Reporter: KNOWN IN

ARABIC AT THE HARAM

AL-SHARIF, OR MOBILE

SANCTUARY, IT IS THE PLACE

WHERE TWO CONSECUTIVE JEWISH

TEMPLES ONCE STOOD.

THE SECOND WAS DESTROYED IN

70 A.D. BY THE ROMANS.

NOW THE MUSLIM MOSQUES

OCCUPY THE SITE.

THE GOLDEN ONE TO THE RIGHT

IS THE MOST IDENTIFIABLE

MUSLIM SHRINE ON THE MOUND.

BUT IT IS THE GREY DOMED

MOSQUE TO MY LEFT THAT THE

MUSLIMS CONSIDER THE THIRD

HOLIEST SITE IN IRAN.

THEY BELIEVE THAT MOHAMMED

TOOK A FAMOUS RIDE ON HIS

WINGED HORSE.

al-ALXA WAS BUILT IN 70

A.D..

IT PREDATES THE JEWS AND

GOES BACK TO CREATION.

ADAM, WHEN HE DESCENDED

FROM THE HEAVEN, HE CAME

HERE AND HE WAS PRAYING

HERE.

THERE IS NO DIFFERENT

BETWEEN SOLOMON AND KING

DAVID -- IT IS ALL THE

SAME.

Reporter: TODAY THE

ENTIRE PLATEAU IS REFERRED

TO AL-AXA.

THE GUIDE WROTE THE AL-AXA

IS IN DANGER, THE HISTORY OF

A LIE.

HE SAYS WHEN THEY WANT TO

UNIT THE MASSES, THEY CLAIM

IT IS IN DANGER.

al-AXA IS IN DANGER,

AND THIS IS DANGEROUS.

Reporter: THIS

ARCHEOLOGIST SAYS THERE HAVE

BEEN EXCAVATIONS NEAR THE

TEMPLE MOUNT, BUT NEVER

UNDER IT.

IT WAS NEVER TOUCHED BY

THE SPADE OF THE

ARCHEOLOGISTS.

Reporter: HE SAYS IT

WAS MUSLIMS, NOT JEWS, WHO

BEGAN DIGGING IN AN ATTEMPT

TO REWRITE HISTORY.

THERE WERE MANY

DESTRUCTIVE DIGINGS GOING ON

IN THE TEMPLE MOUNT, WHICH

WERE NOT FOR ARCHEOLOGICAL

PURPOSES, BUT FOR THE

CONTRARY, FOR DESTROYING

ARCHEOLOGICAL DATA.

Reporter: AROUND 2,000,

THEY DUG UP THOUSANDS OF

YEARS OF HISTORY FROM UNDER

THE TEMPLE MOUND, T MOUNT

TO MAKE ROOM FOR A GIANT

MOSQUE.

YEARS LATER, ARCHEOLOGISTS

AND VOLUNTEERS STILL SIFT

THROUGH THE DEBRIS.

THE GRAND MONTI OF JERUSALEM

SAYS THEY STARTED A LIABLE

AGAINST ISRAEL IN THE

1930s.

HE ACCUSED THE JEWS OF

WANTING TO COLLAPSE THE

MOUNT ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

DR. YITZAK SAYS IT HASN'T

LOST ITS POTENCY.

THEY THINK THE al-AXA

IS IN DANGER.

Reporter: IN 1969, THE

MUSLIM WORLD BLAMED ISRAEL

FOR THE ATTACK ON THE

al-AXA MOUNT.

MORE TROUBLE IN 199 1996,

THE WORST PALESTINIAN

VIOLENCE HAPPENED.

AND IN 2004, RAIN, SNOW, AND

A MINOR EARTHQUAKE TOPPLED

THE ENTRANCE RAMP TO THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

THAT PROVOKED AN

INTERNATIONAL ISLAMIC UPROAR

WHEN ISRAEL TRIED TO REBUILD

IT.

WE ASKED MUSLIMS IN

JERUSALEM WHAT THEY THINK?

IT IS DANGEROUS.

THEY DESTROYED IT TO TAKE

THE PLACE.

THEY ARE DIGGING

UNDERNEATH, DIGGING, AND

DIGGING, AND THEY DON'T FIND

ANYTHING.

GOD WILL SAVE IT.

Reporter: RECENTLY,

ISRAEL ARRESTED A KEY PERSON

FOR INSIGHTMENT.

THEY SAID THEY SHOULD USE

THEIR BODIES TO PREVENT JEWS

FROM GOING UP THERE.

EXPERTS SAY IT IS IMPORTANT

THAT THE WEST TAKES NOTICE

NOW BECAUSE MILLIONS OF

BELIEVE THE VIOLENCE IS

TRUE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY.

Pat: THANKS, CHRIS.

I'VE BEEN OVER THERE PIE THE

THERE, BY THE WAY, AND HAVE

GONE OVER AND LOOKED AT

AL-AQSA.

THEY HAVE A SUBTERRANEAN

AREA, AND IN THE PROCESS,

THEY HAVE WEAKENED THE WALLS

OF THE CITY.

BUT THERE IS HUGE AMOUNT OF

EXCAVATION GOING ON BY THE

MUSLIMS.

AND I'VE ALSO SEEN SOME OF

THE ARTIFACTS.

THE TREASURES FROM THE ROMAN

PERIOD, THEY WILLY-NILLY

JUST SCOOPED THIS STUFF UP

AND THREW IT IN BIG PILES,

OUT IN THE TRASH HEAP, I

MEAN PRICELESS ARTIFACTS.

Terry: HAVE THEY BEEN

ABLE TO GATHER MUCH OUT OF

THAT?

Pat: THEY'RE STILL

SIFTING THROUGH IT.

YOU CAN IMAGINE IF YOU TREAT

AN ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE LIKE A

TRASH DUMP, AND THAT'S WHAT

THE ARABS DID.

IT IS TERRIBLE.

AND THIS WHOLE BUSINESS

ABOUT MOHAMMED AND HIS HORSE

AND FLYING TO HEAVEN, AND

THE HORSE 'S HOOF TOUCHED

THAT -- IT IS NONSENSE.

AISHA, WHO IS HIS FAVORITE

WIFE, HE SAID I DON'T KNOW

WHAT THEY TELL YOU, BUT HE

WAS IN BED WITH MY ALL NIGHT

LONG.

HE DIDN'T GO TO HEAVEN.

BUT THE WHOLE THING, IT'S A

MESS.

BUT THE MUSLIMS LOVE LIES,

AND THIS IS A LIE.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: I WAS IN A CAR, ON

THE WAY TO BETHLEHEM TO MEET

WITH YASSER ARAFAT, AND HIS

AIDE TOLD ME, AS WE PASSED

THE TOMB OF RACHEL, HE SAID

THIS IS ONE OF THE HOLIEST

TOMBS OF ISLAM.

AND I SAID WHAT ARE YOU

TALKING ABOUT?

RACHEL, HIS WIFE --

Terry: IT GETS ALL

DISORIENTED.

Pat: IT IS A BIG LIE.

AND THAT'S WHAT THIS AMOUNTS

TO.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A $5

INVESTMENT PAYS OFF IN THE

MIDDLE OF A RECESSION.

FIND OUT HOW WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: WITHIN ONE MONTH,

MARSHA BRADLEY WENT FROM

BEING UNEMPLOYED TO WORKING

A TEMPORARY JOB, AND FINALLY

TO A FULL-TIME JOB, WITH A

PROMOTION, AND IT ALL

STARTED WITH JUST ONE

TELEPHONE CALL.

Reporter: THE SMALL

TOWN OF CANNON, GEORGIA, WAS

HIT HARD BY THE RECESSION.

JOBS WERE DIFFICULT TO

FIND.

MARSHA BRADLEY AND HER

HUSBAND, EDDIE, WERE BOTH

OUT OF WORTH.

WORK.

IN WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN A

DEPRESSING TIME, THEY WERE

ENCOURAGED BY WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" EVERY MORNING.

WE WERE WATCHING HOW GOD

WAS BLESSING NOT ONLY THE

MINISTRY, BUT HE WAS

BLESSING PEOPLE FROM OTHER

PEOPLE GIVING TO THOSE WHO

DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.

IT WAS DURING THE

TELEPHONE TELETHON, AND WE

BOTH LOOKED AT EACH OTHER,

AND IT IS LIKE OUR SPIRITS

CONNECTED.

AND SHE SAID, WHAT DO YOU

WANT TO DO?

AND I SAID, CALL THEM.

GIVE.

WE NEED TO GIVE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW WE CAN

MANAGE IT, BUT WE'VE GOT

TO.

Reporter: EDDIE AND

MARSHA DIDN'T HAVE MUCH

MONEY, BUT THEY GAVE WHAT

THEY COULD, $5.

SOON AFTER, MARSHA APPLIED

FOR A TEMPORARY JOB AT AN

EGG FARM.

TO HER SURPRISE, SHE WAS

HIRED THE NEXT DAY.

I KNOW THAT THE LORD

OPENED THAT DOOR FOR ME.

EVERY DAY THAT I WOULD GO

IN, I WOULD THANK GOD FOR

GIVING ME THIS JOB.

JUST BEING OBEDIENT TO HIM

AND GIVING BACK TO HIM.

HE GIVES BACK.

Reporter: THEY

INCREASED THEIR PLEDGE TO

"THE 700 CLUB" LEVEL.

WITHIN A MONTH, MARSHA WAS

GIVEN A PERMANENT POSITION.

AND SOON THFT AFTER THAT

WAS PROMOTED TO QUALITY

CONTROL.

I KNEW GOD HAD HIS FAVOR

ON ME THROUGH MY OBEDIENCE

TO HIM.

IT EN CUMPED M ENCOURAGED

ME TO DO MY PART BECAUSE GOD

HAS ALREADY BEEN DOING HIS

PART.

Reporter: AFTER HER

PROMOTION, THEY INCREASED

THEIR GIVING AGAIN TO "THE

700 CLUB" GOLD LEVEL, $40 A

MONTH.

WE DON'T HAVE A WHOLE

LOT, BUT I DON'T HAVE A NEED

OF ANYTHING.

I THANK GOD I'M ALLOWED TO

HELP SOMEONE ELSE.

Reporter: EDDIE

AND

MARSHA SAY THEY FEEL GOOD

ABOUT BEING PART OF CBN.

WE WATCH ALL OF THE GOOD

AND THE OUTREACH THAT "THE

700 CLUB" DOES.

IT TOUCHED OUR HEARTS

TREMENDOUSLY.

I LOVE IT.

I WANT TO BE MORE A PART OF

IT.

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

I MEAN, WE CAN FIND THAT

MUCH ON THE GROUND OR IN OUR

COUCH IF WE DUG DEEP

ENOUGH.

GIVE IT A CHANCE, AND SEE

WHAT HAPPENS.

SEE WHAT IT DOES TO YOUR

HEART.

Pat: MAN, THEY TOUCH MY

HEART, JUST LISTENING TO

THEM.

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO

SUPPORT THIS MINISTRY.

THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT HAPPEN,

AND WE JUST LOVE THEM.

GOD BLESS YOU.

HERE IS A SCRIPTURE BY THE

WAY.

I WAS READING THE BIBLE A

FEW YEARS AGO, AND I CAME

ACROSS ISAIAH 58, AND IT

SAYS, I WANT YOU TO SHARE

YOUR FOOD WITH THE HUNGRY,

AND WELCOME POOR WANDERERS

INTO YOUR HOME, AND GIVE

CLOTHES TO THOSE WHO NEED

THEM.

IF YOU DO THAT, YOUR

SALVATION WILL COME LIKE THE

DAWN.

THE LORD WILL ANSWER, YES,

I'M HERE.

HE WILL QUICKLY REPLY.

IN KING JAMES, I READ

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SINCE "OPERATION BLESSING,"

WE HAVE

DISTRIBUTED OVER A

BILLION AND A QUARTER

DOLLARS WORTH OF FOOD AND

CLOTHES AND SHELTER AND

HELPED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS

OF PEOPLE.

WE THINK THAT HELPING THE

HUNGRY, YOU'RE THE HAND OF

JESUS OUTSTRETCHED.

AND HE LOVES YOU.

HE SAYS, YOU LOOK AFTER THE

POOR, AND I'LL LOOK AFTER

YOU.

AND IT IS JUST THE WAY IT

IS.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO

ARE HURTING, MUCH MORE SO

THAN I WOULD HAVE REALIZED,

BUT WE NEED TO BE THERE FOR

THEM.

AND WE ARE ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

SO, HERE AGAIN, THAT'S THE

MINISTRY OF CBN.

AND HERE IS TERRY TO TELL US

MORE.

Terry: I WANT TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO BUZZ AND

TERESA CAMPBELL.

THEY HAD A DREAM OF WHAT

THEIR PERFECT LIFE WOULD

LOOK LIKE.

BUT THEN REALITY SET IN, AND

THE COUPLE FOUND THEMSELVES

HOMELESS AND DOWN TO THEIR

LAST FEW DOLLARS.

Reporter: MAR MARION

NORTH CAROLINA IS IN THE

FOOTHILLS OF THE MOUNTAINS.

BUZZ AND MARY MOVED HERE.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW THAT MANY

IN THE AREA WERE STRUGGLING

WITH FACTORY CLOSURES.

UNABLE TO GET WORK, BUZZ AND

TERESA ENDED UP LIVING IN A

TENT.

EVERYTHING RAN OUT.

WE COULDN'T FIND WORK.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE OUR

NEXT MEAL WAS COMING FROM.

WE ARE GOING TO BE OKAY.

WE JUST STARTED

BRAINSTORMING AND THINKING,

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?

WHERE ARE WE GOING TO GO?

WE'RE HURTING PHYSICALLY AND

EMOTIONALLY.

AND GOD WAS DRAWING US TO

HIM THE WHOLE TIME.

Reporter: THE

CAMPBELL'S FOUND "OPERATION

BLESSING" PARTNER, VICTORY

CHRISTIAN MINISTRY.

AFTER GETTING FOOD THERE,

BUZZ AND TERESA ATTENDED ONE

OF THEIR SUNDAY SERVICES.

THE WAY GOD REALLY GOT MY

ATTENTION IS WE WERE DOWN TO

OUR LAST $10.

AND I WAS LED TO GIVE HALF

OF THAT INTO THE MINISTRY.

Reporter: WHEN BUZZ LET

GO OF THAT $5, I JUST SEEN A

PEACE AND A CALMNESS COME

OVER HIS LIFE.

AND I'M THINKING, LORD, IF

YOU HAVE EVER, EVER BLESSED

A MAN, I'M ASKING YOU RIGHT

NOW BLESS THAT MAN AND DO IT

IMMEDIATELY.

Reporter: ABOUT A WEEK

LATER, BUZZ LANDED A JOB

WORKING AT A DAY PROGRAM FOR

PEOPLE WITH MENTAL AND

PHYSICAL CHALLENGES.

HE NOW SERVES THERE AS A

DIRECTOR.

TODAY THEY VOLUNTEER WITH

THE MINISTRY, GIVING OUT

FOOD TO OTHER FAMILIES IN

NEED.

THE FOOD FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS IMMENSELY

IMPORTANT TO THIS

COMMUNITY.

WE'VE BEEN BLESSED TO BLESS

OTHERS.

JESUS INTENDED US TO PUT HIS

BLESSINGS TO USE IN THE

LIVES OF OTHERS.

WHEN YOU TURN YOUR LIFE

OVER TO THE LORD, YOU CAN'T

GO ANYWHERE BUT UP.

Terry: WE'VE BEEN

BLESSED TO BLESS OTHERS.

THAT'S SOMETHING TO PONDER,

ISN'T IT.

TODAY IS "GIVE BACK

TUESDAY."

IT IS ONE DAY DURING THE

HOLIDAY SEASON WHERE WE STOP

THINKING ABOUT OURSELVES AND

THE THINGS THAT WE WOULD

LIKE TO BUY, AND WE GIVE

BACK TO OTHERS.

HERE AT CBN, WE WANT TO

ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO JUST

THAT.

WE'RE TAKING THE GOSPEL

AROUND THE WORLD, PROVIDING

MUCH-NEEDED FOOD, WATER,

MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO THE

PEOPLE THAT WE KNOW AROUND

THE WORLD ARE IN NEED.

IF YOU PARTNER WITH CBN ON

GIVEBACK TUESDAY, WE'LL

MATCH YOUR GIFT DOING FOR

DOLLAR, AND YOUR DONATION

WILL BE ABLE TO HELP PENAL

ALL YEAR-ROUND.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN GIVE YOUR GIFT BY

LOGGING ON TO CBN.COM.

BUT WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY

TODAY TO HAVE YOUR GIFT GO

TWICE AS FAR.

STILL AHEAD, SHE HAD MONEY,

FAME, AND A FOOTBALL STAR

FOR A HUSBAND.

HEAR WHY IT WASN'T ENOUGH.

AND HOW SHE FINALLY FOUND

FULFILLMENT.

THAT'S NEXT.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

PARENTS IN THE U.K. ARE

STILL FUMING AFTER BEING

TOLD THEIR CHILD COULD BE

LABELLED RACIST FOR NOT

ATTENDING A WORKSHOP ON

ISLAM.

THE CHRISTIAN INSTITUTE

REPORTS STUDENTS AT YOUNG AS

EIGHT WERE NOT GIVEN THE

OPTION TO SKIP THE CLASS

TRIP.

PARENTS WERE OUTRAGED THAT

THE SCHOOL SENT A LETTER

STATING THAT WORKSHOP

ATTENDANCE WAS MANDATORY FOR

STUDENTS IN GRADES 4 THROUGH

6.

A RACIAL DISCRIMINATION

LABEL WOULD BE ATTACHED TO

THE SCHOOL RECORD.

THE SCHOOL LATER APOLOGIZED

FOR THE INACCURACIES IN THE

LETTER.

THE DEATH OF A 7-YEAR-OLD

CHRISTIAN BOY IN INDIA IS

BEING CALLED UNTHINKABLE.

THE FOUNDER OF "GOSPEL FOR

ASIA," MADE THAT COMMENT.

HIS NAME WAS ANMAL, AND HE

WAS TORTURED TO DEATH FOR

HIS FAITH IN CHRIST.

HIS BODY WAS FOUND IN A POND

LAST WEEK, BRUTALLY BEATEN.

HOWEVER, HIS CAUSE OF DEATH

WAS DROWNING.

AND HIS PARENTS LAST SAW HIM

ALIVE NOVEMBER 17th,

LEAVING FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL.

GOSPEL FOR ASIA SAYS

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IS ON

THE RISE IN INDIA.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: CARRIE HAD IT

ALL, A GLAMOROUS CAREER,

RUBBING SHOULDERS WITH

HOLLYWOOD'S ELITE, AND A

FAIRY TALE MARRIAGE TO A

HANDSOME NFL STAR.

BUT NOTHING WAS EVER ENOUGH

FOR THIS WOMAN WHO'S WORLD

WAS SHATTERED WHEN SHE WAS

JUST A CHILD.

WE WERE A TYPICAL MIDWEST

FAMILY, MOM, DAD, POT ROAST

ON SUNDAY, WALTER CRONKITE

ON THE NEWS.

AND THEN MY PARENTS GOT

DIVORCED, AND EVERYTHING

THAT I KNEW ABOUT SAFETY WAS

GONE.

Reporter: AFTER HER

PARENTS DIVORCED, CARRIE

CECIL MOVED WITH HER MOTHER

TO ARIZONA.

MY CHILDHOOD WAS FILLED

WITH A LOT OF LOVE, BUT IT

WAS FILLED WITH A LOT OF

WANTING.

POVERTY, OF STRUGGLING.

MY MOM WAS TRYING TO BE BOTH

MOM AND DAD.

SHE WORKED THREE JOBS.

BUT WHEN A PARENT WORKS, A

LOT OF SINGLE MOMS, KIDS ARE

LEFT TO THEIR OWN.

I WOULD SAY ABOUT SIXTH

GRADE WAS THE FIRST TIME

THAT I WAS TOUCHED

INAPPROPRIATELY BY A

GROWNUP.

Reporter: THROUGH HIS

ADOLESCENCE, TERRY HID THE

DEEP PAIN OF ABUSE.

THE WAY THAT I SAW MYSELF

AT THAT TIME WAS DAMAGED,

DAMAGED GOODS.

AND I WAS GOING TO DO

WHATEVER IT TOOK TO TRY TO,

AS A KID AND YOUNG ADULT AND

AS A WOMAN, TO MASK THAT AND

TO LIE.

Reporter: AS A YOUNG

ADULT, CARRIE INITIALLY

EMBRACED A PARTY LIFESTYLE,

FILLED WITH DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL.

BUT AS SHE MATURED, SHE

FOUND HER COMFORT

ELSEWHERE.

WHEN SELF-MEDICATION

DIDN'T WORK, TRYING TO FILL

UP THAT HOLE, IT WAS CAREER

BECAUSE POVERTY, I THOUGHT,

WAS THE PROBLEM.

FROM COLLEGE TO NEW YORK, I

HAD WONDERFUL MENTORS, FROM

NEW YORK TO L.A., WORKING IN

P.R. AND MOVIE SETS.

MY CAREER WAS TAKING OFF.

Reporter: BY HER 20s,

CARRIE WAS A TOP PUBLICIST

AND WRITER.

HERE I WAS, ON THE SET

WITH ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER,

I WAS IN "RETURN OF

PARADISE" WITH JOAQUIN

PHOENIX, AND I'M WALKING THE

RANKS.

AND AT NIGHT, I'M GOING

HOME.

I'M DRINKING A REALLY GREAT

BOTTLE OF CHARDONNAY, TAKING

TWO XANAX BECAUSE I CAN'T

QUIET THAT VOICE IN MY

HEAD.

Reporter: WHEN CAREER

WASN'T ENOUGH, TERRY TRIED

TO RECREATE THE FAMILY SHE

DESPERATELY WANTED.

SHE MARRIED HER COLLEGE

SWEETHEART, NFL STAR, CHUCK

CECIL.

THE FOOTBALL STAR.

TWO VICIOUS FOR THE NFL.

I MEAN, MY HUSBAND IS

GOOD-LOOKING, AND STILL IT'S

NOT ENOUGH.

THERE IS NO PEACE.

I CAN'T GO TO SLEEP AT

NIGHT.

I'M STILL AFRAID INSIDE.

EVEN THOUGH NO ONE KNOWS IT,

I'M DRIVING AROUND IN A

MERCEDES BENZ.

EVERYTHING LOOKS GREAT.

WE'RE THE PERFECT NFL

FAMILY.

NO.

Reporter: BUT IN 2001,

CARRIE'S LIFE TOOK AN

UNEXPECTED TURN.

FIRST SHE BECAME PREGNANT,

AND HER HUSBAND BEGAN

COUCHING FOR THE TENNESSEE

TITANS.

CARRIE WAS STUCK IN THE

SOUTH.

AND I'M FROM L.A.

THERE IS NOTHING CRAZIER

THAN CHRISTIANS THAN

SOUTHERNERS.

IN L.A., PEOPLE SAY WHERE DO

YOU GO TO SHOP?

IN NASHVILLE, THEY SAY,

WHERE DO YOU GO TO CHURCH?

CHURCH?

I GO TO CHURCH AT NEIMAN

MARCUS.

THERE IS STORMIO MAR, AND

AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN FAMILY,

TIM AND MICHELLE JOHNSON.

TIM IS A BIG NFL STAR, AND

HE IS A PASTOR, AND THEY ALL

GO TO HIS ONE CHURCH IN

NASHVILLE.

Reporter: SHE FORMED

HER CLOSEST BOND WITH THE

JOHNSON FAMILY?

HONESTLY, AT THIS POINT

I'M PREGNANT WITH MY

DAUGHTER.

I'VE BEEN IN L.A., I HADN'T

EATEN, I WAS TRYING TO BE

SKINNY MY WHOLE LIFE, AND

THEY'RE FEEDING ME.

MICHELLE CAN COOK ANYTHING.

AND SHE WOULD FEED ME, AND I

WOULD SEE THIS LOVE IN THEIR

HOUSE.

HONESTLY, AT THIS POINT I

THINK I WAS SOBER FOR THE

FIRST TIME BECAUSE I WAS

HAVING MY DAUGHTER.

I HAD NOT HAD HER YET.

I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR, AND

I JUST WASN'T VERY

LIKEABLE.

Reporter: SEVERAL

MONTHS LATER CARRIE

RELUCTANTLY AGREED TO VISIT

THEIR CHURCH.

I AGREED TO GO TO THEIR

CHURCH, ONLY ONE TIME,

BECAUSE I WANTED TO SOLIDIFY

MY SUNDAY MEAL.

I HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

LIKE IT IN MY LIFE.

IT WAS BLACK, BROWN, YELLOW,

PEOPLE OF EVERY COLOR.

IT WAS LIKE THE UNITED

NATIONS OF A SORT OF

"GLEE".

I THOUGHT GOD ONLY LOVED

PEOPLE WHO WERE GOOD.

I SAT IN THE BACK ROW

BECAUSE I THOUGHT LIGHTENING

WOULD HIT BECAUSE I'M HERE.

THE PASTOR SPEAKS, AND

SOMETHING SPEAKS TO ME, AND

IT TOUCHED ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS,

BUT I WAS, LIKE, WOW, HE IS

TALKING TO ME.

Reporter: SHE

CONTINUALLY ASKED THE

JOHNSON FAMILY SPIRITUAL

QUESTIONS.

FINALLY, CARRIE GOT THE SIGN

SHE WAS LOOKING FOR.

I WALKED INTO A STORE AND

I GOT A SIGN.

IT WAS A SIGN ON THE WALL.

IT WAS JUST A SAYING, I

DIDN'T KNOW WHERE IT WAS

FROM.

IT SAID, "COME TO ME, ALL OF

YOU WHO ARE WEARY AND

BURDENED, AND I WILL GIVE

YOU REST."

AND ISN'T THAT WHAT WE WANT,

JUST PEACE?

I JUST WANTED TO GO TO

SLEEP.

AND I WANTED MY DAUGHTER TO

HAVE A HOPE AND A FUTURE.

AND I WANTED TO HER TO BE

THE WOMAN THAT I WANTED TO

BE AND WASN'T.

AND I WENT OVER TO TIM'S

HOUSE THAT NIGHT, AND

MICHELLE I SAT ON THEIR BACK

PORCH, AND I SAID, OKAY,

TIMMY, WHAT IS IT?

HOW DO YOU HAVE THIS PEACE

AND JOY.

AND HE SAID, BABY, THAT

AIN'T US.

THAT'S JESUS.

Reporter: SIX MONTHS

LATER, CARRIE WAS BAPTIZED

AT PASTOR TIM'S CHURCH.

TODAY SHE IS A FULL-TIME

SPEAKER AND AUTHOR, AND HAS

WRITTEN A FICTION WORK ABOUT

HER SPIRITUAL JOURNEY CALLED

"ONE SUNDAY."

GOD DIDN'T COME TO SAVE THE

PERFECT.

HE CAME TO SAVE THE BROKEN.

HE LOVES US AT OUR WORST.

HE LOVES US IN THE PLACES

THAT WE CAN'T LOVE

OURSELVES.

IF YOU'RE THAT ONE PERSON,

LIKE I WAS, MAYBE YOU DON'T

HAVE ANYTHING, MAYBE YOU

HAVE IT ALL.

AT SOME POINT YOU'RE GOING

TO NEED MORE, AND THAT IS

WHEN GOD MOVES IN.

WE'RE IN A PLACE WHERE GOD

WILL MEET YOU EXACTLY WHERE

YOU ARE.

Terry: WHETHER YOU HAVE

IT ALL OR WHETHER YOU HAVE

NOTHING, WE ALL HAVE THE

SAME NEED.

IT IS SAID THAT THE GROUND

IS LEVEL AT THE FOOT OF THE

CROSS.

YOU SEE, WE'RE ALL SINNERS

IN NEED OF A SAVIOR.

THERE IS NOBODY WHO GETS

SPECIAL TREATMENT.

WE ARE SINNERS.

WE NEED FORGIVENESS.

AND THAT'S WHEN OUR PEACE

COMES.

YOU KNOW, WHEN THE PEACE OF

GOD COMES INTO YOUR HEART

BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT YOU'VE

BEEN FORGIVEN FOR YOUR

THOUGHTS, FOR YOUR ACTIONS,

FOR THE WAY THAT YOU'VE

LIVED, HURT OTHERS, THE

WICKED THINGS YOU'VE SAID --

ALL OF THAT.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN JESUS

FORGIVES US, IT IS

COMPLETE.

HE FORGIVES US AS FAR AS THE

EAST IS FROM THE WEST, AND

REMEMBERS IT NO MORE.

YOU GET A NEW BEGINNING.

BUT NOT JUST A NEW BEGINNING

TO START OFF WITH THAT SAME

SIN NATURE AT THE CONTROLS.

A NEW BEGINNING TO START

LIFE WITH THE POWERFUL

SPIRIT OF GOD.

ALIVE AND LIVING IN YOU.

WE'RE TRANSFORMED.

WE ARE TRANSFORMED BY JESUS

CHRIST.

BY HIS SACRIFICE.

BY HIS PRESENCE WITHIN US.

AND THAT IS THE THING THAT

GIVES US PEACE OF HEART AND

PEACE OF MIND, AND GIVES US

A SENSE OF PURPOSE AND

CONTENTMENT IN THE PLACE

THAT GOD HAS US.

BUT EXPECTANCY FOR WHAT HE

WANTS TO DO IN US AND

THROUGH US.

ALL OF THAT IS YOURS FOR THE

ASKING.

YOU CAN'T EARN IT.

YOU CAN'T BUY IT.

BUT YOU CAN HAVE IT TODAY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD.

ACKNOWLEDGE, HUMBLE YOURSELF

BEFORE GOD.

GOD, I AM A SINNER, IN NEED

OF A SAVIOR.

ASK HIM TO FORGIVE YOUR

SINS.

ACKNOWLEDGE THAT CHRIST DIED

FOR YOU.

IT WASN'T JUST SOME GENERIC

THING.

IT WAS FOR YOU AND FOR ME,

FOR OUR SIN.

TODAY YOU CAN HAVE

FORGIVENESS AND A WHOLE NEW

BEGINNING.

IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING IN

YOUR LIFE THAT YOU WOULD

SPECIFICALLY LIKE TO PRAY

ABOUT, YOU CAN PRAY WITH

SOMEONE TODAY.

WE HAVE PEOPLE STANDING BY.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE, IT

IS 1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I'D LIKE

TO PRAY.

I'D LIKE TO INVITE JESUS

CHRIST FO INTO MY LIFE.

THE PEOPLE WHO ANSWER THAT

PHONE CALL HAVE ALREADY

PRAYED THAT PRAYER, AND YOU

WILL MAKE THEIR DAY BY

CALLING TODAY.

EXPERIENCE THE FREEDOM OF

FORGIVENESS AND THE JOY THE

EXPECTANCY OF NEW LIFE.

CALL NOW.

PAT?

Pat: THANKS, TERRY.

GOOD WORD.

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT ON"

WITH YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

JACKIE SAYS, "A MONTH AGO MY

HUSBAND TOLD ME HE NEVER

LOVED ME.

AND NOW HE IS TELLING ME HE

WAS LYING TO HIMSELF WHEN HE

SAID THOSE THINGS.

WHAT DO I BELIEVE?"

WELL, WE'LL GIVE THAT

QUESTION A SHOT WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: WELL, YOU KNOW

WE LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU, SO

LET'S TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO

ANSWER YOUR "BRING IT ON"

QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM JACKIE WHO SAYS, "I'VE

BEEN MARRIED FOR 16 YEARS.

A MONTH AGO MY HUSBAND TOLD

ME HE NEVER LOVED ME.

I WAS DEVASTATED.

NOW HE IS TELLING ME HE WAS

LYING TO HIMSELF WHEN HE

SAID THOSE THINGS AND HE

DOES, IN FACT, LOVE ME.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

BELIEVE.

I'M HURT AND CONFUSED.

WHAT DO I DO?"

Pat: JACKIE, WHAT IS

LOVE?

IS THAT A BUBBLY FEELING

THAT YOU SEE ON THE SILVER

SCREEN?

IS IT SOMETHING YOU READ

ABOUT I IN IN ROMANCE

BOOKS?

WHAT IS IT?

WELL, YOUR HUSBAND HAS BEEN

WITH YOU FOR 16 YEARS.

YOU DON'T SAY IF YOU HAVE

ANY CHILDREN, BUT YOU

PROBABLY DO.

DOES HE PROVIDE FOR YOU?

DOES HE PROVIDE FOOD AND

SHELTER?

DOES HE TAKE YOU PLACES?

HE DOESN'T KNOW.

WHO KNOWS WHAT KIND OF

EMOTION FLOODS THROUGH YOUR

HEART AT ANY GIVEN POINT IN

TIME.

IS YOUR TESTOSTERONE RUNNING

HIGH OR LOW -- WHO KNOWS.

THE QUESTION IS: HOW DOES HE

ACT?

THAT IS MORE TELLING AS TO

HIS LOVE AS TO WHETHER OR

NOT HE HAS SOME EMOTION AT

SOME TIME.

WHO KNOWS?

IF HE SAYS HE WAS LYING.

HE DOESN'T KNOW.

TRUST HIM, HE DOESN'T KNOW.

HE REALLY DOESN'T KNOW.

BUT HE IS ACTING TO YOU AS

IF HE LOVES YOU, TAKE THAT

AND GET ON WITH IT.

Terry: I WAS JUST GOING

TO SAY, YOU OFTEN TALK ABOUT

THIS, THAT THERE CAN BE

IMBALANCES AS WE GO THROUGH

TIMES IN OUR LIVES,

CHEMICALLY.

IF HE BECOMES UNSTABLE WHERE

HE IS SAYING THIS AGAIN ONE

DAY AND ONE THING THE NEXT,

HE MIGHT NEED TO SEE A

DOCTOR.

Pat: WELL, NOT YET.

Terry: NOT YET.

BUT WHEN A HUSBAND TELLS HIS

WIFE HE DOESN'T THINK HE

EVER LOVED HER -- I'M WITH

JACKIE ON THAT?

I MEAN, WHO ARE YOU?

Pat: BUT HOLD THE SHIRT

FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

YOU DON'T KNOW.

IT COULD BE CHEMICAL.

THE HORMONES COME,.

Terry: HAVE YOU EVER

SAID THAT TO DEE DEE?

Pat: OF COURSE NOT.

Terry: I DIDN'T THINK

SO.

AND IF MY HUSBAND EVER SAID

IT TO ME --

Pat: I'VE BEEN MARRIED

FOR ALMOST 60 YEARS.

AND I GET TO APPRECIATE HER

MORE TODAY.

Terry: EXACTLY MY

POINT.

Pat: BUT IT IS NOT

ROMANTIC, BUBBLY ALL OF THE

TIME.

Terry: NO.

BUT YOU HAVEN'T TOLD HER YOU

DON'T LOVE HER.

Pat: IF I HAD SUCH AN

EMOTION, I WOULD KEEP MY

MOUTH SHUT.

Terry: THANK YOU.

BRILLIANT.

THIS IS JIM WHO SAYS, "HOW

DID KING SAUL DIE, IN 1

SAMUEL 31-4, IT SAYS HE FELL

ON HIS SWORD.

BUT THEN IN THE 2nd, IT

SAYS SOME MAN KILLED HIM.

WHAT'S THE CORRECT ACCOUNT

ACCOUNT?"

Pat: I THINK THE

CHANCES WERE THAT HE FELL ON

HIS SWORD.

WE USE THAT STATEMENT, FOR

SOMEBODY WHO SACRIFICED

HIMSELF, HE FELL ON HIS

SWORD.

HE FELL ON HIS SWORD, AND

THAT PUNCTURED HIM, SO HE IS

IN THE DEATH THROES.

BUT HERE COMES THIS GUY AND

HE SAYS, WOULD YOU FINISH ME

OFF.

I THINK HE PROBABLY DID IT.

AND HE GOES AND TELLS DAVID,

AND DAVID HAS HIM KILLED.

WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND

DONE, IT WAS OF THE LORD

BECAUSE SAUL HAD SINNED

AGAINST GOD, AND GOD -- THE

BIBLE SAYS GOD KILLED HIM.

WHO KNOWS.

Terry: THIS IS TIM, WHO

SAYS, "MY FATHER HAS

CANCER.

HE IS 86 YEARS OLD, AND I

PRAY FOR HIM AND MY MOTHER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO

GOD, THOUGH.

I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD

PRAY FOR HEALING OR PRAY FOR

HIM TO PASS AWAY GENTLY.

I FEEL IF I ASK FOR THE

LATTER, IT SHOWS MY LACK OF

FAITH."

Pat: HOW SHOULD WE

PRAY?

DO YOU THINK THE WAY WE

FRAME OUR PRAYERS SOMEHOW

AFFECTS GOD?

IT'S WHAT'S IN OUR HEART.

YOU LOVE YOUR FATHER.

SAY, FATHER, IT IS IN YOUR

HANDS.

DON'T PRAY FOR HEALING OR TO

LET HIM PASS.

GIVE IT TO THE LORD.

HEY, 83 --

Terry: HE'S 86.

Pat: I'M 83.

I INTEND TO BE ALIVE WELL

PAST 86.

SO I DON'T WANT SOME

DAUGHTER SAYING, WE GIVE IM

T HIM TO YOU.

KEEP HIM ON "THE 700 CLUB,"

PRAISE THE LORD.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR TODAY.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

Pat: WE APPRECIATE

EVERYBODY.

I JUST WAS SO TOUCHED BY

SOMEBODY WHO SACRIFICES TO

GIVE $5.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM TODAY'S LAST

BLESSING.

AND IT IS FOUND IN

PHILLIPIANS 4: 19: "MY GOD

WILL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS

ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES AND

GLORY IN CHRIST JESUS."

THE APOSTLE PAUL ROLLED THAT

WHILE HE WAS IN PRISON.

HE SAID I KNOW HOW TO BE A

BASS AND A BOUND, AND, BY

THE WAY, GOD IS GOING TO

TAKE CARE OF YOU.

HE IS GOING TO SUPPLY ALL OF

YOUR NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS

RICHES AND GLORY.

HOW RICH IS GOD IN GLORY?

WEDNESDAY, WE'LL SIT DOWN

WITH GAVIN MACLEOD, A DEAR

FRIEND OF MANY YEARS, THE

CAPTAIN OF "THE LOVE BOAT."

Terry: WE HAVEN'T SEEN

HIM FOR A WHILE.

Pat: HE AND HIS WIFE

ARE DELIGHTFUL PEOPLE.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

UNTIL THEN, FOR TERRY, THIS

IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU.

BYE-BYE.
