ARE YOU BEING ROBBED BY

WHAT YOU EAT?

WE'RE ALL WALKING AROUND

WITH THESE DEFICIENCIES, AND

WE HAVE NO IDEA THIS IS EVEN

A PROBLEM.

Wendy: HEAR WHAT IS

BEING CALLED THE GREATEST

HEALTH SCURGE OF THE 21st

CENTURY.

PLUS, THE NFL GIANT TO STAND

UP FOR THE LITTLE GUY.

IT DIDN'T MATTER HOW BIG

AND TOUGH YOU ARE, YOU CAN'T

USE YOUR SIZE TO INTIMIDATE

PEOPLE.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: NICE TO SEE YOU

TODAY.

HOW ARE YOU?

Wendy: I'M GETTING IN

THE MOOD FOR CHRISTMAS.

Pat: ARE YOU REALLY?

Wendy: WE BETTER.

IT IS ONLY A WEEK AWAY.

Pat: ONE WEEK FROM

TODAY WE'LL BE THERE.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK TODAY

ABOUT MANHOOD.

MAN UP.

Wendy: GROW A BEARD,

PAT.

Pat: IS THAT THE SIGN

OF MANHOOD?

IF YOU HAD TO DESIGN ONE,

WHAT WOULD YOU DESIGN?

Wendy: OH, MY DREAM

MAN.

WELL, HE IS MANLY.

OF COURSE, HE LOVES GOD,

WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING.

AND HE CAN FIX SOME THINGS

AROUND THE HOUSE.

I THINK THAT IS IMPORTANT.

Pat: A HANDYMAN WHO

LOVES GOD.

I'LL TELL YOU, THE

MILLENNIUMS, THEY THOUGHT

THEY HAD -- BARBARA WALTERS

SAID WE THOUGHT WE HAD THE

NEXT MESSIAH.

THE NEXT MESSIAH, FOLKS.

BUT NOW THEY'VE GOT A SEVERE

CASE OF BUYER'S REMORSE

AFTER HE HAS TWO OR THREE OR

FOUR OR FIVE PINOCCHIOS.

THE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO VOTED

FOR THE PRESIDENT ARE NOW

SUFFERING.

Wendy: THE PRESIDENT

NOW HAS THE WORST APPROVAL

RATING OVERALL SINCE NIXON.

AND LIKE OTHER AMERICANS,

THOSE MILLENNIUMS, WHO WERE

ONCE HIS STRONGEST

SUPPORTERS, ARE WORRIED

ABOUT OBAMACARE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS MORE.

Reporter: JUST A YEAR

INTO HIS SECOND TERM, THERE

IS NO SHORTAGE OF OPINIONS

ON THE PRESIDENT'S JOB

PERFORMANCE.

HIS HEART IS IN THE RIGHT

PLACE.

BUT IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

HE NEEDS TO STEP OUT

THERE AND BE MORE FORCEFUL

AND GET THE THINGS DONE.

OBAMACARE -- I SEE WHAT

HE WANTS TO DO, BUT IT IS

NOT GOING ALONE WELL.

Reporter: YOUNGER

VOTERS WERE AMONG THE

PRESIDENT'S STRONGEST

SUPPORTERS.

AND MANY CAMPAIGNED HARD TO

GET HIM ELECTED IN 2008 AND

RE-ELECTED IN 2012.

A YEAR LATER, POLLS SUGGEST

THAT A GROWING NUMBER ARE

SUFFERING FROM BUYER'S

RESOURCE.

WHEN "U.S.A. TODAY" POLLED

MILLENNIALS IN 2013, 67%

APPROVED OF THE PRESIDENT'S

JOB PERFORMANCE.

IN THAT SAME POLL NOW, JUST

45% APPROVE.

HE IS STILL GOING TO BE

SEEN BY THEM AS THE COOLEST

PRESIDENT EVER SO FAR.

BUT THEY THINK OF COOLS

YOU'VE GOT TO BE COMPETENT,

AND THEY DON'T SEE IT THAT

WAY.

I THINK HIS HEART IS IN

THE RIGHT PLACE.

Reporter: KENDALL

CRAWFORD CAST HER BALLOT FOR

OBAMA IN 2008 AND 2012.

TODAY SHE HAS A LIST OF

COMPLAINTS.

AT THE VERY TOP, THE

FALTERING HEALTH REFORM.

IN HEALTH CARE, I FEEL

LIKE HE COULD HAVE PUT A BIT

MORE -- MAYBE APPOINTED

SOMEONE AND MADE SURE THEY

GOT IT STRAIGHT, SINCE IT

WAS SUCH AN IMPORTANT

ISSUE.

Reporter: HEALTH CARE

IS THE PRESIDENT'S SIGNATURE

LEGISLATION, AND YOUNG

VOTERS' LACK OF CONFIDENCE

IN IT COULD SPELL TROUBLE

FOR ITS FUTURE.

THOSE PEOPLE WERE

EXPECTED TO SIGN UP TO PAY

FOR IT.

THE YOUNG PEOPLE HAD TO BE

BROUGHT IN.

THEY WERE THE ONES WHO WOULD

PAY FOR THIS.

AND THEY'RE NOT DOING THIS.

THEY'RE AFRAID, LIKE

EVERYBODY ELSE.

Reporter: FOR NOW, THEY

MAY BE ON THE SIDE OF THE

REPUBLICANS.

THE REPUBLICANS DON'T

NEED TO MAKE A BIG SHOW THAT

WE KILLED THE PRESIDENT'S

LAW.

THEY JUST NEED TO LET IT DIE

AND OFFER THE OPTIONS PEOPLE

LIKE.

Reporter: FROM HEALTH

CARE, TO THE I.R.S. SCANDAL,

TO

THE

BACKLASH OVER N.S.A.

RECORD COLLECTING, THE

"WASHINGTON POST" DECLARED

PRESIDENT OBAMA AS HAVING

THE WORST YEAR IN

WASHINGTON.

ONE WROTE, WHEN THE

HISTORIANS WRITE THE STORY

OF PRESIDENT OBAMA, 2013

WILL BE HIS LOST YEAR.

ALL EYES ARE ON 2014

ELECTIONS TO SEE WHAT THE

IMPACT WILL BE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, EPHRAIM.

I MIGHT SAY BEFORE YOU PUSH

A LANDMARK PIECE OF

LEGISLATION, IT WOULDN'T

HURT TO READ IT.

AND THE QUESTION IS, VERY

SERIOUSLY, DID OBAMA READ

THE LAW.

AN EXPERT I HAD ON HIS

PROGRAM SAID SHE DOESN'T

REALLY THINK SO.

AND I WOULD DOUBT IF ANYBODY

IN CONGRESS READ IT.

BUT NOW WE'VE GOT IT, AND

IT'S A MONSTROSITY.

AND ALBATROSS IS GOING TO BE

AROUND THE NEXT WHO

SPONSORED IT, AND THAT

HAPPENS TO BE THE

DEMOCRATS.

THE NATIONAL DEBT IS SOARING

ABOUT $17 TRILLION.

BUT THE NEW SENATE BUDGET

BILL DOES ALMOST NOTHING TO

FIX THAT PROBLEM.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE OF THAT

STORY.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, THE

SENATE HAS MOVED AHEAD TO

PASS THE MODEST BUDGET DEAL

THAT HAS BEEN CREATING A LOT

OF BUZZ ABOUT NEW-FOUND

BIPARTISAN.

IT DOES LITTLE TO FIGHT THE

NATIONAL DEBT.

INSTEAD IT IS SUPPOSED TO

EASE THE PAINFUL MANDATORY

CUTS FROM THE SEQUESTER.

BUT TO DO THAT, IT CUTS BACK

ON BENEFITS FOR MILITARY

VETERANS, AND IT INCLUDES

HIDDEN TAXES.

ROB LOUIE SAYS WASHINGTON

CALLS THEM FEE INCREASES,

BUT FOR THE REST OF AMERICA,

IT IS TAX HIKES.

REPUBLICAN SENATOR TOM

KOBURN SAYS WASHINGTON IS

UNABLE TO CURB ANY

SPENDING.

HE POINTS TO DOZENS OF

OUTRAGEOUS AND OVER-THE-TOP

SPENDING.

Reporter: THE LIST OF

WASTE FULL SPENDING BY

WASHINGTON GROWS LONGER AND

LONGER EACH YEAR.

THE LATEST REPORT BY SENATOR

TOM COBURN LISTS WASTE FULL

SPENDING.

LIKE THE STATE DEPARTMENT

SPENDING $630,000 TO ATTRACT

FOLLOWERS ON TWITTER.

AND THE GOVERNMENT SPENT

$300 MILLION TO LEARN THAT

WOMEN WOULD FIND MARRIAGE

MORE SATISFYING IF THEY

COULD CALM DOWN FASTER

DURING ARGUMENTS WITH THEIR

HUSBANDS.

HOW ABOUT BROTHELS IN NEVADA

GETTING $17 MILLION IN TAX

EXEMPTIONS.

THE DEDUCTIONS RANGING FROM

BREAST IMPLANTS TO PASSES TO

BRING IN NEW COSTUMERS.

THE FORT HOOD SHOOTER

COLLECTED $278,000 IN

MILITARY BENEFITS BECAUSE

THE MILITARY CODE OF JUSTICE

DOESN'T ALLOW A SOLDIER TO

BE SUSPENDED UNTIL THEY ARE

FOUND GUILTY.

INSIDE THE WASTE BOOK

THIS YEAR IS $30 BILLION OF

STUPID, WHAT I WOULD

CONSIDER STUPID OR AT LEAST

POOR JUDGMENT WHEN IT COMES

TO SPENDING MONEY IN A TIME

WHEN WE HAVE VERY LITTLE

MONEY TO SPARE.

Reporter: KOBURN SAYS

THE REPORT SPEAKS VOLUMES

ABOUT WHY THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE HAVE LOST CONFIDENCE

IN THE GOVERNMENT AND WHY

CONGRESS' APPROVAL RATING IS

AT A LONG TIME LOW.

WE SEE NO WASTE, KEPT NO

WASTE, AND EMBRACED

INCREASING THE BURDEN ON THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE BECAUSE WE

WON'T DO OUR JOB.

IT IS REPUBLICAN AND

DEMOCRAT ALIKE.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

PAT, MY FAVORITE EXAMPLE

IS NUMBER 11 IN THE WASTE

BOOK, NASA PAID 20 PEOPLE

$18,000 EACH TO LIE AROUND

ALL DAY TO SEE THE EFFECT OF

WEIGHTLESSNESS OF THE BODY

IN SPACE FLIGHT.

Pat: I THINK LAYING

AROUND IS A GOOD THING, BUT

TEACHING WOMEN HOW TO DO

POLE DANCING IS MORE

IMPORTANT.

WOMEN NEED TO KNOW MORE

ABOUT POLE DANCING.

AND WIVES NEED TO BE SWEET

TO THEIR HUSBANDS.

$300MILLION?

THIS IS CRAZY.

KEEP IN MIND THIS WASTE BOOK

IS JUST A TINY FRACTION OF

THAT MONSTROSITY THAT IS THE

FEDERAL BUDGET.

AND THEY HAVEN'T EVEN DEALT

WITH THE MAJOR DRIVERS.

ALL OF THE TREMENDOUS THINGS

THAT ARE SUBSIDIZING HEALTH

CARE, AND SUBSIDIZING, WELL,

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, ETC.

THESE ARE BILLIONS AND

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

I SAW ONE THING ABOUT

SOME -- WELL, THEY ARE

VEHICLES THAT THEY'VE USED

AGAINST I.E.D.s, OVER IN

IRAQ.

AND THEY COST ABOUT $500,000

A PIECE.

AND WE'RE ABANDONING SEVERAL

THOUSAND OF THEM OVER THERE,

NOT EVEN BRINGING THEM

HOME.

THIS KIND OF THING IS JUST

OUTRAGEOUS.

BUT WHEN ARE THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE GOING TO REVOLT

AGAINST IT.

$17TRILLION.

SOONER OR LATER YOUR

CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN

WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS

STUFF.

AND OBAMA SAID WE DON'T HAVE

A DEBT PROBLEM.

YES, WE DO.

JOHN?

PAT, A BILL RECENTLY

REINTRODUCED IN CONGRESS MAY

DO AWAY WHY CHRISTIAN TV

PROGRAMMING.

IT SEEKS TO GET RID OF MUST

CARRY RULES THAT PROTECT

FREE LOCAL TELEVISION.

THE NATIONAL RELIGIOUS

BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION IS

URGING CONGRESS NOT TO PASS

THE BILL.

JERRY JOHNSON SAID IT WOULD

BE A SIGNIFICANT TO

CHRISTIAN TV STATIONS.

THE MUST-CARRY REGULATIONS

WERE ENACTED BY CONGRESS IN

1992, AND LATER UPHELD BY

THE SUPREME COURT.

ISRAEL FACES CONSTANT

CRITICISM ON COLLEGE

CAMPUSES AROUND THE WORLD.

A NEW ONLINE UNIVERSITY

HOPES TO FIGHT BACK BY

PROVIDING BOTH JEWISH AND

CHRISTIAN STUDENTS WITH A

BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE

CHRISTIAN STATE.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: ISRAEL IS

UNDER SIEGE AT AMERICAN

UNIVERSITIES AND AT CAMPUSES

AROUND

THE WORLD.

[YELLING]

ISRAEL REALLY DOESN'T

MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF A

LEGITIMATE STATE.

Reporter: NOW A COURSE

FROM JERUSALEM ONLINE

UNIVERSITY GIVES STUDENTS

AND OTHERS THE TOOLS TO

FIGHT BACK.

SO WE'RE TRYING TO GIVE A

PERSPECTIVE ON NOT JUST THE

HISTORY OF THE ANCIENT AND

MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL, BUT

ALSO ON THE BIBLICAL

PROPHETIC CONNECTION BETWEEN

THE MODERN JEWISH PEOPLE AND

THE BIBLE, AND HOW THE

ANCIENT HISTORY CONNECTS

WITH THE MODERN, WHERE IT IS

GOING.

Reporter: THE BIBLICAL,

HISTORICAL, AND MODERN

PERSPECTIVE IS A SEVEN-PART

MOVIE COURSE THAT CONDENSES

THE HISTORY AND CONTRIBUTION

OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

WE'RE DEALING WITH SUCH A

COMPLEX SITUATION, THAT

PEOPLE TEND TO HAVE VERY

LITTLE INFORMATION ON IT.

Reporter: RABBI KEN

SPIRO, ONE OF THE FILM'S

CREATORS, SAYS THEY'RE

TAKING A HOLISTIC APPROACH

ON POLITICS, RELIGION, AND

PHILOSOPHY.

WE'RE SHOWING ONE OF OUR

MOVIES, "ISRAEL INSIDE," AND

IT'S SUCH A DYNAMIC,

POSITIVE FORCE IN HISTORY,

AND WHY THE JEWISH PEOPLE

HAVE BEEN THE MOST HATED

PEOPLE IN HUMAN HISTORY.

WHEN PEOPLE THINK ABOUT

ISRAEL, THEY THINK ABOUT WAR

OR RELIGION.

OR EVEN FALAHAL.

Reporter: THE ISRAEL

INSIDE COURSE FOCUSES ON

MODERN ISRAEL AND ITS

CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE WORLD.

TO ME, WHEN I THINK ABOUT

ISRAEL, I THINK OF THE

TRIUMPH OF THE HUMAN

SPIRIT.

ISRAELIS SURROUNDED BY

ENEMIES, WHO TURNED THE

DESERT, WITHOUT HARDLY ANY

NATURAL RESOURCES, INTO A

PRODUCTIVE AREA.

IN RECENT YEARS, THE

JEWISH PEOPLE'S CONNECTION

TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL HAS

BECOME SOMEWHAT OF A

CONTENTIOUS PLACE.

BUT THE ARCHEOLOGY CLEARLY

DEMONSTRATES THE JEWISH

PEOPLE'S CONNECTION TO THE

LAND OF ISRAEL.

THAT'S ABOUT PROPHECY AND

THE END OF DAYS.

OF EVERYTHING THAT I PRESENT

AS AN EDUCATOR, IT IS

PROBABLY THE MOST

CONDENSED.

IT NOT ONLY GIVES THE WHOLE

SWEEP OF WHAT JEWISH HISTORY

ABOUT, BUT WHAT IT FOCUSES

ON IS CURRENT EVENTS.

Reporter: THE FINAL

CLASS TEACHES STUDENTS HOW

TO EFFECTIVELY STAND UP ON

BEHALF OF ISRAEL.

EVERY INDIVIDUAL HAS THE

ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE

PEOPLE ABOUT ISRAEL AND TO

EDUCATE PEOPLE ABOUT WHO

ISRAEL REALLY IS.

Reporter: SPIRO

BELIEVES USING TRUTH AND

LITTLE-KNOWN FACTS ABOUT

ISRAEL WILL HELP PEOPLE MAKE

THEIR OWN DECISIONS ABOUT

ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

FOR MORE OF CHRIS'

EXCLUSIVE REPORTING FROM

ISRAEL, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK

OUT HIS BLOG AND WEEKLY

SHOW, "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

AND PEOPLE CAN FIND BOTH AT

OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

Pat: WELL, CHRIS IS

HEAD OF OUR JERUSALEM

BUREAU.

AND HE DOES A SUPERB JOB OF

COVERING THE MIDDLE EAST.

HE LOVES THE LORD, LOVES

ISRAEL, AND LOVES THIS

NATION.

WENDY?

Wendy: WELL, UP NEXT,

YOU MAY THINK YOU'RE EATING

HEALTHY, BUT WHAT YOU DON'T

KNOW COULD BE KILLING YOU.

WE'RE ALL WALKING AROUND

WITH THESE DEFICIENCIES, AND

WE HAVE NO IDEA THAT THIS IS

EVEN A PROBLEM.

CANCER, IT HAS TO DO WITH

YOUR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE,

YOUR CHOLESTEROL LEVELS.

AND WHETHER YOU SLEEP WELL.

IT HAS TO DO WITH

EVERYTHING.

AND DIABETES, AND IT ALSO

HAS TO DO A LOT WITH

OBESITY.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

"IT" IS AND HOW YOU CAN

FIGHT IT, AFTER THIS.

Pat: NAKED CALORIES.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: THAT SOUNDS --

Wendy: SCANDALOUS.

Pat: AND YOU COULD BE

ENGAGED IN CONSUMING NAKED

CALORIES.

YOU COULD BE STARVING

YOURSELF INTO OBESITY.

WHY?

MOST LIKELY THE FOOD YOU'RE

EATING IS LACKING IN VITAL

NUTRIENTS.

AND THE MORE OF THESE EMPTY

CALORIES YOU EAT, THE MORE

YOUR BODY CRAVES.

AS LORI JOHNSON REPORTS,

THIS LEADS NOT ONLY TO

OBESITY, BUT ALSO TO A WHOLE

HOST OF OTHER HEALTH

PROBLEMS.

HERE IS LORI TO FRIGHTEN

YOU.

Reporter: WE ALL KNOW

THAT GOING WITHOUT FOOD

CAUSES MALNUTRITION.

BUT PEOPLE WHO EAT PLENTY

CAN ALSO SUFFER FROM IT AND

BECOME VERY SICK.

JUST ASK MIRA KELTON.

WHEN I WAS 30, I WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH ADVANCE

OSTEOPOROSIS.

WHICH MEANS I HAD THE BONE

DENSITY OF AN 80-YEAR-OLD.

WHICH WAS A SHOCK TO THE

PHYSICIANS AT THAT TIME.

ALL THEY TOLD ME IS THAT I

WAS GOING TO BE ON

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS FOR

THE REST OF MY LIFE.

IT WASN'T GOING TO GET ANY

BETTER.

THAT WAS GOING TO BE MY NEW

EXISTENCE.

Reporter: MIRA DIDN'T

WANT DRUGS AND SEARCHED FOR

A NATURAL TREATMENT.

I TRIED EATING CALCIUM,

AND THAT LET TO MAGNESIUM,

AND THAT LED TO VITAMIN "D"

AND VITAMIN "K."

ALL I REALIZED WHAT HAPPENED

TO ME WAS A MICRONEUT

MICRONUTRIENT DEFICIENCY.

Reporter: AFTER TWO

YEARS OF EATING VITAMIN AND

MINERALS, HER OSTEOPOROSIS

DISAPPEARED.

NOW SHE AND HER HUSBAND WANT

TO SPREAD THE NEWS ABOUT

MICRONUTRIENT DEFICIENCY.

IT HAS TO DO WITH YOUR

BLOOD PRESSURE, YOUR

CHOLESTEROL LEVELS, WHETHER

YOU SLEEP WELL.

IT HAS TO DO WITH

EVERYTHING.

AND DIABETES.

AND IT HAS TO DO A LOT WITH

OBESITY.

IT IS THE MOST WIDESPREAD

AND DANGEROUS HEALTH

DEFICIENCY OF THE 21st

CENTURY.

BECAUSE WE'RE ALL WALKING

AROUND WITH THESE

DEFICIENCIES AND WE HAVE NO

IDEA THIS IS A PROBLEM.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

GOVERNMENT STATISTICS, THIS

AFFECTS 90% OF AMERICANS.

WHICH MEANS ALL OF US LACK

AT LEAST ONE CRITICAL

VITAMIN OR MINERAL NECESSARY

FOR GOOD HEALTH.

TOPPING THE LIST, CALCIUM,

MAGNESIUM, AND VITAMINs

"A," "D," AND "E."

PROCESSED FOOD IS THE MAJOR

CULPRIT BECAUSE IT IS

STRIPPED.

THE CALTONS SAY ONE FOURTH

OF THE FOOD WE EAT CONTAINS

ZERO NUTRITIONAL VALUE.

SOME ACTUALLY TAKE AWAY

MICRONUTRIENTS.

THE ACID IN CARBONATED

DRINKS INTERFERES WITH YOUR

BODY'S ABILITY TO ABSORB

CALCIUM.

THERE IS A WAR GOING ON

WITH AMERICANS AND FOOD

MANUFACTURERS, AND MOST

AMERICANS HAVE NO IDEA IT IS

EVEN GOING ON.

Reporter: MOST OF US

KNOW PROCESSED FOOD IS BAD

FOR US.

WHAT IS SHOCKING IS THAT

EVEN FRESH FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES AREN'T AS

HUMANITY A HEALTHY AS YOU

MIGHT THINK.

APPLES CONTAIN 77% FEWER

MINERALS THAN THEY DID 80

YEARS AGO.

WHY THE CHANGE?

OVERFARMING.

IT ROBS THE SOIL OF PRECIOUS

MICRONUTRIENTS.

SHIPPING PRODUCE LONG

DISTANCES ADDS TO THE

PROBLEM.

PICKING IT TOO SOON AND

EXPOSING IT TO LIGHT, HEAT,

AND AIR A LONG TIME TAKES

AWAY MICRONUTRIENTS.

A HEALTHIER ALTERNATIVE IS

LOCAL PRODUCE.

MEAT ALSO FALLS VICTIM TO

THIS TREND.

MOST ANIMALS ARE RAISED

INSIDE FACTORY FARMS AND FED

UNHEALTHY GRAIN OR WORSE.

THEY'RE BEING FED UP TO

SEVEN POUNDS A DAY OF STALE

CANDY AND CHOCOLATE BARS,

THAT THE CANDY MANUFACTURERS

ARE THROWING AT THESE

FARMERS SAYING, HEY, FATTEN

UP YOUR CATTLE WITH THIS.

THIS IS JUST TO ME, AN

ABOMINATION.

Reporter: IF YOU'RE A

MEAT EATER, CHOOSE GRASS-FED

BEEF.

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

WHEN THE ANIMAL IS OUT IN

THE SUNSHINE, AS ABSORBING

THE VITAMIN "D."

THERE WILL BE 400% MORE OF

THE VITAMIN "D."

AND THEY WILL HAVE THE KIND

OF FAT THAT SCIENTISTS THINK

WILL HELP PREVENT CANCER.

AND IT HELPS BURN OUR BODY

FAT.

THIS IS A NATURALLY

OCCURRING FAT THESE COWS CAN

GET WHEN THEY EAT GRASS.

Reporter: MICRONUTRIENT

DEFICIENCY ISN'T ONLY CAUSED

BY A DIET, BUT CERTAIN

LIFESTYLES CAN DEPLETE OUR

BODY OF VITAMINS AND

MINERALS.

THE LIST INCLUDES SMOKING,

LIVING IN A POLLUTED CITY,

STRESS -- THAT'S A BIG

ONE -- AND SURPRISINGLY,

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS.

THAT'S SCARY BECAUSE WHEN

WE BECOME DEFICIENT WE START

TO GET SICK.

Reporter: TO MAKE UP

FOR WHAT YOUR BODY IS

MISSING, TAKE A SUPPLEMENT,

BUT CHOOSE CAREFULLY.

THE PROBLEM IS MOST

MULTI-VITAMINS DON'T

DISCENTEDIS DISINTEGRATE.

Reporter: THEY

RECOMMEND POWDERED

MULTI-VITAMINS WITH OUT

SUGARS AND ARTIFICIAL

COLORS.

SO WHILE THE STANDARD

AMERICAN DIET AND LIFESTYLE

CAN LEAD TO MALNUTRITION, WE

CAN GET THE MICRONUTRIENTS

ARE BODIES CRAVE BY AVOIDING

PROCESSED FOOD, EATING MORE

LOCAL, ORGANIC PRODUCE, AND

SUPPLEMENTING PROPERLY.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: LISTEN TO HER.

SHE IS GIVING YOU GOOD

ADVICE.

DID YOU EVER HEAR ABOUT

BULRON?

Wendy: BULRON?

NO.

Pat: YOU'RE ONE OF

THOSE WOMEN WHO WILL HAVE

PROBLEMS WITH YOUR BONES.

BORON --

Wendy: OH, BORON.

Pat: IT IS A SUPPLEMENT

THAT HELPS FIGHT

OSTEOPOROSIS.

I AM HOOKED THESE DAYS ON

NUTS.

I REALLY LIKE ALMONDS, AND I

LIKE WALNUTS AND I LIKE PEE

CAN PECANS, AND I LYCOPENE

NUTS.

LIKE PEANUTS.

Wendy: THEY'VE GOT

VITAMINS AND GOOD FAT.

Pat: YOU CAN TAKE SOME

GOOD VITAMINS.

THEY'RE NOT REALLY

VITAMINS.

THEY'RE MINERALS.

CALCIUM, MAGNESIUM, THEY'RE

ESSENTIALLY MINERALS.

Wendy: BUT LORI WAS

SAYING THAT THE POWDERED

MULTI-VITAMIN IS MUCH MORE

EFFECTIVE THAN THE PILL.

Pat: I'M SORRY, LORI.

I TAKE PILLS.

I CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH.

ANYHOW, SHE IS TELLING YOU

THE TRUTH.

IT IS GOOD STUFF.

ALSO BERRIES.

YOU THEY FREEZE BERRIES

PRETTY QUICKLY AFTER THEY

PICK THEM.

BLUEBERRIES ARE TREMENDOUS,

STRAWBERRIES, RASPBERRIES,

ALL OF THE HIGHLY COLORED

BERRIES.

WONDERFUL.

NUTS AND BERRIES, VERY

GOOD.

THE LORD MADE THIS WORLD

WITH WHAT IS NEEDED FOR US.

WE HAVE VEGETABLES.

WE HAVE BERRIES, WE HAVE

NUTS, WE HAVE FRUIT, WE HAVE

ALL OF THIS STUFF.

AND IF WE CAN GET IT

NATURALLY, WE WILL STAY

HEALTHY.

IT'S WHEN WE STRIP THESE

FOODS OF THEIR NUTRIENTS,

THEN WE GET SICK.

AND WE'VE GOT SO MUCH

SICKNESS.

Wendy: IT WAS SO SAD TO

HEAR THAT VITAMINS AND

MINERALS ARE 77% LESS TODAY

THAN THEY WERE 80 YEARS

AGO.

SO YOU NEED TO FIGURE OUT A

WAY TO SUPPLEMENT.

Pat: AND YESTERDAY WE

HAD THAT IDIOTIC PIECE FROM

THE CARDIOLOGISTS AND

EXPERTS SAYING DON'T TAKE

VITAMINS.

THIS IS NONSENSE.

BUT THEY'RE RIGHT ABOUT THE

MULTI-VITAMINS, I DON'T SEE

MUCH GOOD IN THEM.

I TAKE A HANDFUL OF

EVERYTHING.

Wendy: SO FAR, SO

GOOD.

PRAISE THE LORD.

Pat: FINALLY, IF YOU'RE

GETTING ENOUGH VITAMINS AND

MINERALS -- YOU CAN TAKE A

FREE QUIZ ON OUR WEBSITE AT

CBN.COM.

STAY ALIVE AND STAY

HEALTHY.

Wendy: COMING UP, HE IS

BIG AND BRAUN NE BRAWNY,

BUT HE REMEMBERS WHAT IT

FELT LIKE TO BE BULLIED.

I NEEDED TO BE MORE.

I WASN'T ACCEPTED.

THAT HOVERING SADNESS AND

DEPRESSION, IT DEFINITELY

PLAYED A TOLL IN MY LIFE AND

HOW THAT SHAPED ME.

Wendy: THE CLEVELAND

BROWN'S GARY GILKY TALKS

ABOUT HIS CAMPAIGN TO FIGHT

BULLYING, NEXT.

Pat: UNNECESSARY

ROUGHNESS.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE CALL?

THE GUY BLOWS THE WHISTLE.

YOU DID IT, 15 YARDS.

WELL, WHAT ABOUT BULLYING,

YOU KNOW, IN PRO FOOTBALL?

DO THEY HAVE BULLYING ON THE

FIELD?

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THEY

HAD A GUY WHO QUIT A FEMALE

BECAUSE HE WAS BULLIED.

AND THE COUCH TOLD ONE OF

THE BIG GUYS TO TOUGHEN HIM

UP.

OFF THE FIELD, GARY GILKY IS

THE PLAYER WHO UNDERSTANDS

THE DANGER OF BULLYING FIRST

HAND, ESPECIALLY FOR

CHILDREN.

RECENTLY HE TALKED WITH

SPORTS REPORTER TOM BURING

ABOUT HIS PERSONAL CAMPAIGN

TO TOP BULLYING.

Reporter: IN A LEAGUE

OF GIANTS, THE CLEVELAND

BROWNS' GARY GILKEY IS AMONG

THE LARGEST.

HE IS PLAYING A POSITION

THAT DEMANDS SIZE AND

STRENGTH.

AS AN OFFENSIVE LINEMAN

WE'RE GENERALLY CALLED TO BE

VERY DOMINANT, HAVING

TENACITY AND BEING VERY,

VERY PHYSICAL.

SOMETIMES YOU'RE GOING TO

EXPERIENCE THOSE MOMENTS

WHEN THE GUY ACROSS FROM YOU

IS DROOLING AT THE MOUTH.

I PUT ON BLINDERS AND NARROW

MY FOCUS.

Reporter: THAT IMPOSING

DEMEANOR DIDN'T COME EASILY

FOR THIS 6' 6" OFFENSIVE

GUARD.

IT IS HARD TO TRANSITION

IN SPORTS TO BEING

PHYSICAL.

MY MOM SAID, GARRETT, YOU

HAVE TO BE GENTLE.

YOU CAN'T USE YOUR SIZE TO

INTIMIDATE PEOPLE.

Reporter: INTIMIDATION

AMONG NFL TEAMMATES HAS MADE

NATIONAL HEADLINES, AND

ADDRESSING BROADER ISSUES

ABOUT BULLYING.

WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF

TRYING TO GAIN POWER OVER

ANOTHER PERSON, WHETHER

YOU'RE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL OR

WHETHER

YOU'RE WITH

CO-WORKERS, YOU'RE

ESSENTIALLY PUTTING ANOTHER

PERSON BENEATH YOURSELF.

THAT IS GOING TO CREATE

DOUBT AND FEAR.

THOSE ARE ISSUES THAT WILL

ARISE.

IT DIDN'T MATTER HOW BIG OR

HOW STRONG OR HOW TOUGH YOU

ARE, THOSE ARE THINGS THAT

WILL SURFACE.

AND THOSE ARE THINGS THAT

NEED TO BE DEALT WITH.

Reporter: YOU WOULD

THINK IT WOULD BE EASY FOR A

MAN THE SIZE OF AN NFL

LINEMAN TO FACE THE ABUSE OF

A BULLY, BUT FOR GARRETT

GILKY, THERE IS NOTHING EASY

ABOUT IT.

BECAUSE GROWING UP, HE WAS

BULLIED.

TAKING THE FRONT SEAT OF

HURT AND SHAME, THAT STILL

LINGERS LONG AFTER THE

HARASSMENT ENDED.

BULLYING IS VERY

DETRIMENTAL.

I'VE ALWAYS FELT NOT GOOD

ENOUGH.

LIKE I NEEDED TO BE MORE.

THAT I WASN'T ACCEPTED.

THAT HOVERING SADNESS AND

DEPRESSION -- IT DEFINITELY

PLAYED A TOLL IN MY LIFE AND

HOW THAT SHAPED ME.

Reporter: GARRETT

EXCELLED ACADEMICALLY, BUT

IT BROUGHT CHALLENGES.

AS A HIGH SCHOOL FRESHMAN, A

MUCH SMALLER GARRETT CU WAS

PICKED ON IN SCHOOL.

A HEART OPERATION PROHIBITED

HIM FROM PLAYING SPORTS.

SO HE ASSIGNED A JOB IN THE

OFFICE.

MAKING IT HARDER TO DEAL

WITH HIS PEERS.

I QUICKLY BECAME THE FACE

OF THE KIDS -- THE TROUBLE

THEY WERE GETTING INTO.

I WAS IN AN ASSEMBLY, AND IT

CAME TIME TO RECOGNIZE THE

FALL ACTIVITIES.

AND MY NAME WAS SAID AND THE

ENTIRE SCHOOL HAD BOOED ME.

AND THEN I SAT BACK DOWN AND

WENT BACK UP FOR THE MATH

TEAM.

AND THE SAME THING

HAPPENED.

THERE WAS A SLIDE SHOW UP ON

THE WALL AND MY PICTURE

WOULD COME UP, AND, AGAIN,

THE ENTIRE SCHOOL BOOED ME.

I REMEMBER GOING INTO THE

BATHROOM AND JUST SOBBING.

THERE IS AN INSTANCE WHILE I

WAS WALKING HOME.

YOU KNOW, I WAS CONFRONTED

BY, YOU KNOW, A GROUP OF

KIDS.

AND, YOU KNOW, I HAD HAD

BRACES IN MY TEETH AND I HAD

ALL OF THIS HARDWARE ON THE

ROOF OF MY MOUTH AND IT KIND

OF STOOD OUT.

ONE OF THE KIDS AWKWARDLY

ASKED TO SEE IT.

AND WITHOUT GOING INTO TOO

MUCH DETAIL, SOMETHING WAS

THROWN IN MY MOUTH.

IT WAS A TIME WHEN I FELT

ISOLATED.

I FELT ALONE.

IT WAS VERY DAMAGING.

Reporter: SO DAMAGING

THAT GARRETT SWITCHED

SCHOOLS.

BY HIS SENIOR YEAR, HE GREW

INTO HIS NFL HEIGHT.

HE PLAYED COLLEGE FOOTBALL

AT SHADRON STATE, ARRIVING

IN CLEVELAND AS A SEVENTH

ROUND PICK EARLIER THIS

YEAR.

HE WAS A LONG SHOT, ONE OF

ONLY 11 PLAYERS DRAFTED TO A

DIVISION TWO SCHOOL.

BUT BEING BULLIED, HE WAS

ACCUSTOMED TO BEING AN

OUTSIDER.

THERE ARE ISSUES AS TO

WHY THAT CHILD IS DOING THE

BULLYING.

MAYBE BEING BEATEN BY HIS

DAD AT HOME.

MAYBE THERE IS GANG

VIOLENCE.

WHEN YOU DON'T WANT A

FOUNDATION, YOU WANT TO

SUPPLEMENT IT WITH THINGS

YOU HAVE CONTROL OF DOING.

THEY'RE ABLE TO FILL THAT

VOID, TO FEEL BETTER ABOUT

THEMSELVES.

Reporter: FORGIVENESS,

HOW IMPORTANT WAS IT FOR IN

OVERCOMING THIS?

ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.

FOR ANY TYPE OF RECOVERY,

YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO

FORGIVE THE PERPETRATORS,

THE PEOPLE WHO DID THOSE

THINGS.

I SHIFTED MY MENTALITY AND I

SHIFTED THE WAY I LOOKED AT

THOSE KIDS.

I WASN'T UNTIL I WAS TRULY

ABLE TO LOVE THOSE PEOPLE

THAT I WAS ABLE TO ACCEPT

MYSELF AND TRULY OVERCOME

AND HEAL FROM THE THINGS

THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: WHERE DID

GARRETT FIND THE STRENGTH TO

FORGIVE?

TO ME, THAT COULDN'T BE

MORE OF A BIBLICAL PORTRAYAL

OF, LIKE, THE FACE OF

CHRIST.

SOMETHING THAT IS SO HARD

FOR PEOPLE IS TO SEE HOW

CHRIST LOOKS AT US, AND HIS

LOVE IS SO OVERWHELMING FOR

US.

THE REALITY IS GOD CALLS US

TO LOVE OTHERS THE WAY HE

LOVES US.

AND THAT INCLUDES

FORGIVENESS.

THAT INCLUDES RECKLESS

LOVE.

GOD FORGIVES ME OF ALL OF MY

INADEQUACIES.

HE LOVES ME

UNCONDITIONALLY.

AND I LOOK AT THE ENCOUNTERS

IN MY LIFE, AND I LOOK AT

THE THINGS THAT OTHER PEOPLE

HAVE DONE TO ME.

IT IS NOTHING.

IF I CAN'T FORGIVE SOMEBODY

FOR SOMETHING THAT THEY'VE

DONE FOR ME, HOW CAN I

EXPECT CHRIST TO FORGIVE ME

FOR THE REJECTION THAT I'VE

HAD AGAINST HIM?

Reporter: GARRETT

VISITS SCHOOLS IN THE

GREATER CLEVELAND AREA.

HIS PROFILE AS AN NFL PLAYER

PROVIDES A PLATFORM TO

ADDRESS STUDENTS WHO ARE

PULLEBULLIED AND WHO

BULLY.

IT IS HARD BECAUSE PEOPLE

DEAL WITH REAL HURTS, REAL

PAIN, REAL ISSUES AND REAL

STRUGGLES.

HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE

PERSEVERANCE AND STAYING

STRONG UNDER THE PRESSURE.

IT'S HARD.

CHRIST CALLS US TO CONSIDER

JOY UNDER TRIALS.

THE OPPOSITION THAT YOU COME

ACROSS DEVELOPS YOU INTO

THAT PERFECT MOLD THAT

CHRIST INTENDS YOU TO BE.

THAT'S WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE

THE POWER.

THAT'S WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE

THE JOY THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

GARRETT GILKY, WHO LEVERAGED

THE STRENGTH TO TRANSFORM A

WOUND INTO ACCEPTANCE.

I'M

Pat: I WAS JUST READING

A BOOK ABOUT CORY TENBON,

AND THIS IS ABOUT HER

SISTER, BETSY.

THE SISTER DIED IN A

CONCENTRATION CAMP.

THEY WERE ARRESTED BY THE

GERMANS FOR SHELTERS JEWS IN

HOLLAND, KEEPING THEM FROM

BEING DEPORTED TO GERMANY TO

BE KILLED.

AND THE GERMANS -- THE NAZIS

PICKED THEM UP.

AND THEIR FATHER DIED

SHORTLY THEREAFTER HIS

INCARCERATION.

CORY SURVIVED, AND THE OTHER

SISTER DIED.

OF COURSE, SHE HAD

PERNICIOUS ANEMIA, BUT THEY

WERE BOTH TAUGHT LET'S

FORGIVE THESE PEOPLE.

WHAT THEY WERE TAUGHT IS

THESE GERMANS MUST BE REALLY

MISERABLE, THESE NAZIS.

THEY MUST BE MISERABLE.

WHEN YOU THINK THEY'RE

PERSECUTING GOD'S PEOPLE,

GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE.

THINK WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN TO THEM.

IT IS GOING TO BE HORRIBLE.

SO INSTEAD OF SUFFERING,

THEY WERE SUPERIOR BECAUSE

THEY WERE THE ONES WHO WERE

DOING THE FORGIVING.

AND CORY HAD THAT

FORGIVENESS, EVEN FOR PEOPLE

WHO PERSECUTED HER IN

CONCENTRATION CAMPS.

SHE FOUND IT IN HER HEART TO

FORGIVE THEM.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

IT IS CALLED "FORGIVENESS."

IF SOMEBODY HAS HURT YOU OR

DAMAGED YOU OR BEAT YOU UP

WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG OR

SOMETHING, AND YOU'RE STILL

CARRYING THAT, WE'LL SEND

THIS TO YOU.

IT IS A LITTLE BOOKLET.

WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE IF

YOU WANT IT.

1-800-759-0700.

THE BOOKLET IS CALLED

"FORGIVENESS."

WENDY?

Wendy: IT IS TIME TO

"BRING IT ON."

TERRY WRITES, "I'VE SEEN TV

SHOWS THAT BLATENTLY MOCK

JESUS CHRIST AND MAKE FUN OF

CHRISTIANS.

OBVIOUSLY, I'M OFFENDED.

I WOULD CALL AND COMPLAIN,

BUT I KNOW IT DOES NOTHING.

I HAVE HEARD THAT SOME

STATIONS EXPECT TO GET A

CERTAIN NUMBER OF

COMPLAINTS. I'VE TRIED

BOYCOTTS, BUT THEY ARE

LARGELY INEFFICIENT

INEFFECTIVE.

WHAT CAN THE PUBLIC DO TO

STOP THIS?"

Pat: I'VE GOT AN

ADDRESS, www.CFT.org IT

IS THE CHRISTIAN

FOUNDATION.

IF ENOUGH PEOPLE GET

TOGETHER, MAYBE WE CAN DO

SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Wendy: JIMMY

WRITES, "I'VE BEEN ON A

LIQUID ONLY FAST FOR 40

DAYS.

I'M GETTING READY TO EAT

AGAIN.

I'VE HEARD THE BODY ISN'T

READY TO EAT RIGHT AFTER A

FAST.

HOW WOULD YOU RECOMMEND

BREAKING A FAST?"

Pat: TRYING SOME BROTH

OR SOUP, OR SOMETHING BLAND

LIKE OATMEAL.

I'LL GO VERY, VERY SLOW

BECAUSE YOU'LL BE REAL

HUNGRY, BUT YOUR STOMACH

WON'T STAND IT.

TRY LIQUIDS.

TRY SOUPS AND THINGS LIKE

THAT.

AND GRADUALLY COME ON BACK

TO REGULAR EATING.

OTHERWISE YOUR SYSTEM IS

GOING TO REVOLT.

Wendy: I HAD BROCCOLI

AND CHEESE SOUP AFTER

FASTING ONCE, AND THAT WAS

NOT A GOOD IDEA.

AND IF YOU'RE A LITTLE

LACTOSE INTOLERANT, WHICH

APPARENTLY I WAS, AND I

DIDN'T KNOW IT, BUT YOU

DON'T WANT TO DO CHEESE.

Pat: FORGET CHEESE.

BROTH WOULD BE GREAT.

Wendy: REESE

WRITES, "YOU ANSWERED A

QUESTION RECENTLY PERTAINING

TO THE OLD TESTAMENT.

YOU SAID WE ARE NOT BOUND TO

THE OLD TESTAMENT LAWS

ANYMORE.

IF THAT'S THE CASE, THEN WHY

ARE WE STILL HEARING ABOUT

THE LAW OF TITHING?

THAT WAS IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT.

THERE ARE MANY SCRIPTURES IN

THE NEW TESTAMENT, BUT THERE

IS NO COMMANDMENT TO GIVE 10

10%."

Pat: IN THE NEW

TESTAMENT, IT'S NOT 10%.

IT IS 100%.

EVERYTHING WE HAVE BELONGS

TO THE LORD.

OUR LIFE BELONGS TO THE

LORD.

AND HE TELLS US HOW MUCH OF

IT WE CAN KEEP.

SO IT'S HIS.

WE'RE HIS.

WE'RE BOND SLAVES.

WE'RE SLAVES TO JESUS

CHRIST.

WE HAVE BEEN BOUGHT WITH A

PRICE.

HE GAVE HIS LIFE.

HE REDEEMED US FROM THE

DEVIL, AND WE BELONG TO

HIM.

SO YOU CAN'T JUST TAKE YOUR

MONEY AND GO OUT ON A BIG,

WILD TEAR AND SAY, I'VE

ALREADY GIVEN 10%, AND I'M

GOOD FOR THE OTHER 90.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, WE

BELONG TO HIM.

AND SO IT'S -- THE 10% WAS

JUST KIND OF -- WELL, IT WAS

A STANDARD THEY USED TO

INDICATE ONE DEGREE OF

OWNERSHIP.

THERE IS ALSO IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT THREE TITHES.

I'VE FOUND IN TIMES PAST

THAT THREE TITHES WAS GOOD

FOR ME.

YOU DECIDE BEFORE THE LORD,

BUT REMEMBER YOU BELONG TO

HIM.

Wendy: CANDY

WRITES, "IF GOD GIVES US A

SOUND MIND, WHERE AND WHEN

DID MENTAL ILLNESSES

ORIGINATE?"

Pat: WELL, YOU SAY GOD

GIVES US A SOUND MIND, BUT

HE IS TALKING ABOUT

CHRISTIANS.

HE GIS US A SOUND MIND.

BUT HE DOESN'T NECESSARILY

GIVE EVERY DRUG ADDICT A

SOUND MIND.

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE IN OUR

SOCIETY WHO HAVE MENTAL IM

IMPAIRMENTS.

THERE IS SICKNESS IN THE

WORLD AND PEOPLE HAVE

PROBLEMS.

AND THERE ARE CHEMICAL

IMBALANCES.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT, LIZ

LIZZIE WRITES, "REVELATION

SAYS IF ANYONE ADDS OR TAKES

AWAY FROM THIS BOOK, GOD

WILL SMITE THEM.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?"

Pat: IT DOESN'T SAY HE

IS GOING TO SMITE THEM.

IT IS A LITTLE ADMONITION

FOR THOSE WHO ARE READING

IT, YOU BETTER BEHAVE AND

LISTEN TO IT.

I THINK WE NEED TO REFERENCE

THE BIBLE.

WE NEED TO REFERENCE WORDS

LIKE THIS AND TRY TO LIVE

THEM.

REVELATION IS CONFUSING

ENOUGH WITHOUT TRYING TO

WORRY ABOUT THE FACT THAT

YOU'RE GOING TO GET SMITED

IF YOU DON'T KEEP IT.

I GOT AN "A" PLUS ON MY

REVELATION STUDY IN

CEMETERY.

AND I KNOW LESS ABOUT

REVELATION NOW THAN I DID

THEN.

THERE IS SOME STUFF YOU

DON'T KNOW.

THERE ARE TYPES AND SHADOWS

AND SO FAR FORTH.

I WOULDN'T WORRY TOO MUCH

ABOUT THAT.

THERE ARE PRINCIPLES IN

THERE, THINGS THAT CAN TEACH

YOU, AND REMEMBER THE FIRST

FEW CHAPTERS, THE LETTERS TO

THE CHURCHES OF ASIA, AND

EACH ONE HAS A LESSON THAT

ALL OF US CAN LEARN BY.

ALL RIGHT.

Wendy: PAT, THAT'S IT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT.

Pat: YES, MA'AM, THANK

YOU FOR THAT.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD, YOU

MAY WEAR THE PANTS IN THE

FAMILY, BUT ARE YOU A REAL

MAN?

FIND OUT WHEN BEST-SELLING

AUTHOR STEVEN MANSFIELD

JOINS US LIVE.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

A BIG WIN FOR THE CATHOLIC

ARCHDIOCESE OF NEW YORK.

A FEDERAL JUDGE RULED

OBAMACARE'S CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE CANNOT BE ENFORCED

ON CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS.

THE CATHOLIA GROUP FILED A

SUIT LAST YEAR.

THEY WERE CHALLENGING THE

LAW'S PROVISION THAT SAID

NON-PROFITS MUST PROVIDE

CONTRACEPTIVE COVERAGE OR

AUTHORIZE A THIRD PARTY TO

PROVIDE COVERAGE.

THE DECISION SAYS FORCING

GROUPS TO DO SO VIOLATES

THEIR RELIGIOUS RIGHTS.

THE SENATE HAS CONFIRMED JAY

JOHNSON AS THE NEW HEAD OF

THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY.

HE IS A FORMER TOP PENTAGON

LAWYER.

HIS CONFIRMATION COMES AFTER

REPUBLICANS TRIED TO

FILIBUSTER HIS NOMINATION.

HE IS THE FOURTH PERSON TO

LEAD THE DEPARTMENT OF

HOMELAND SECURITY SINCE IT

WAS CREATED AFTER THE 9/11

ATTACKS.

ABOUT 40% OF THE SENIOR

POSITIONS IN THE DEPARTMENT

ARE CURRENTLY VACANT.

JOHNSON SAYS FILLING THOSE

POSTS IS AMONG HIS POP

PRIORITIES.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN 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: WELL, A WOMAN

SIMPLY IS, BUT A MAN MUST

BECOME.

THAT'S A QUOTE INCLUDED IN

STEVEN MANSFIELD'S LATEST

BOOK.

WATCH THIS.

Reporter: MASCULINITY

IS NOT SOMETHING GIVEN TO

YOU, BUT SOMETHING YOU

GAIN.

AND YOU GAIN IT BY WINNING

SMALL BATTLES WITH HONOR.

GREAT MEN OF THE PAST ARE

EXAMPLES OF THE VIRTUES AND

ACTIONS OF TRUE MAN

MANHOOD.

STEVEN MANSFIELD IDENTIFIES

THE WAY MANLY MEN ARE

SUPPOSED TO LIVE IN HIS NEW

BOOK.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB," A

MANLY MAN HIMSELF, STEVEN

MANSFIELD.

GREAT TO SEE YOU.

I HOPE MY WIFE IS WATCHING.

[LAUGHTER]

Wendy: I LOVE THE

SUBTITLE, "AND UTTERLY

INVIGORATING SIDE TO BEING

YOUR MOST MASCULINE SELF."

OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE HAVING FUN

WITH THIS, BUT THIS IS A

SERIOUS CALL TO MEN TO MAN

UP.

WHAT IS THE GOAL?

MY GOAL IS TO CHANGE THE

UNDERSTANDING OF MAND

MANHOOD FROM MACHO THINGS,

YOU KNOW, CIGARS AND

MOTORCYCLES AND MUSCLE.

IT IS A MATTER OF CHARACTER

AND OF THE DOING.

WE HAD AN AWESOME MEN'S

MOVEMENT NOT TOO LONG AGO,

AND IT WAS GREAT.

BUT IT WAS VERY

THERAPEUTIC.

IT WAS VERY MUCH ABOUT

HEALING THE SOUL.

WE NEEDED THAT AT THE TIME.

THE MILLENNIALS ARE SAYING,

JUST TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO

DO.

Wendy: YOU ARE WRITING

A WOMAN IS, BUT MEN MUST

BECOME.

Reporter: IT IS A QUOTE

FROM A FEMALE SCHOLAR.

AND SHE SAYS WHAT A WOMAN IS

COMES ABOUT BY VIRTUE OF HER

BIOLOGY.

SHE HAS A BABY AND FALLS IN

LOVE WITH A MAN.

BUT A MAN CAN BE CONSISTENT

WITH HIS BODY AND HIS

BIOLOGY AND SO ON AND BECOME

SOMETHING VERY, VERY

DIFFERENT THAN A GOOD MAN.

HE CAN USE THAT STRENGTH.

HE CAN USE ALL THAT HE HAS

AS A MAN TO DO A LOT OF

DAMAGE.

SO A MAN, SHE IS SAYING, HAS

TO BE TAUGHT MANHOOD.

HE HAS TO BE TAUGHT THE

VERSION OF MANHOOD YOU WANT

HIM TO LIVE OUT.

AND IT'S TRUE, IF YOU JUST

LET YOUNG BOYS GROWS,

THEY'LL BECOME MEN, BUT THEY

MAY NOT BECOME NOBLE MEN.

Wendy: YOU HAVE FOUR

MAXIMS IN YOUR BOOK.

THE FIRST ONE IS MANLY MEN

DO MANLY THINGS.

DOES THAT MEAN THEY HUNT,

THEY FISH, THEY GROW

BEARDS?

I KNOW IT MEANS MORE THAN

THAT, RIGHT?

SURE.

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO PUT

EMPHASIS ON IS THE DOING.

WE'RE ALL FOR SOUL CARE AND

THERAPY AND WHATEVER PEOPLE

NEED.

BUT THE DOING IS TAKING

RESPONSIBILITY.

IT IS ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS

FOR A MAN TO DO WHAT HE HAS

BEEN CALLED TO DO, AND TO

PERFORM THE DUTIES THAT GOD

HISTORY GIVEN HIM BY VIRTUE

OF BEING A MEN.

FOR MEN, WHEN YOU PUT THE

EMPHASIS OF FEELING, THEY

GET FRO FRUSTRATED.

SO YOU GIVE THEM SOMETHING

TO DO.

Wendy: MANLY MEN TEND

THEIR FIELD.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

EVERY MAN HAS A FIELD HE

HAS TO TEND TO.

FOR A COLLEGE KID, IT COULD

BE THE DORM ROOM.

BUT FOR AN OLDER MAN, IT IS

THEIR WIVES AND HOUSE

HOUSEHOLDS.

WHATEVER GOD HAS GIVEN YOU,

THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE

RESPONSIBLE TO TEND.

MANHOOD IS MEASURED BY HOW

YOU TAKE CARE OF, NURTURE,

PASTOR, SHEPHERD THAT

FIELD.

Wendy: THERE ARE TWO

MORE MAXIMS, AND WE CAN MAKE

PEOPLE BUY THE BOOK OR WE

CAN TALK ABOUT THEM RIGHT

NOW.

STEVEN, I HAVE A LOT OF

SINGLE GIRLFRIENDS WHO ARE

SAYING WHERE ARE THE MANLY

MEN?

DO WE NEED TO TAKE UP

HUNTING, FISHING?

WHERE ARE THEY HIDING?

ONE OF MY FAVORITE

AUTHORS SAID, YOU ASK WHERE

THE MEN ARE?

AND YOU TURNED THEM INTO

WOMEN?

MY ISSUE IS WHERE ARE THE

OLDER MEN SUMMING UP AND

CREATING THE YOUNGER MEN.

I USE THE ILLUSTRATION IN

THE BOOK OF MY FATHER, WHEN

I WAS THREE OR FOUR, WOULD

SAY OPEN THE DOOR FOR YOUR

MOTHER.

IT BEGAN TO BE BRANDPED

BRANDED IN MY SOUL -- MOM

COULD OPEN THE DOOR BETTER

THAN I COULD, BUT IT GOT

BURNED IN NI SOUL THA MY

SOUL THAT A MAN TAKES CARE

OF THE WOMEN.

HE WOULD SAY, YOU DON'T

SPEAK TO YOUR MOTHER THAT

WAY.

THEN HE WOULD SAY, A MAN

DOESN'T SPEAK TO A WOMAN

THAT WAY.

HE WAS MENTORING ME.

MEN ARE ONLY GOING TO COME

FROM A MANLY CULTURE, AND

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO

CREATE.

Wendy: WHAT I LOVE

ABOUT YOUR BOOK IS YOU HAVE

SO MANY EXAMPLES OF MANLY

MEN, WINSTON CHURCHILL, KING

DAVID.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE?

I THINK MY FAVORITE IS

WINSTON CHURCHILL.

THE STORY I LIKED IN THERE

THE MOST IS CHURCHILL'S

FATHER HATED HIM, BUT

CHURCHILL DECIDED WHEN THE

MAN DIED, HE WAS GOING TO

FOLLOW HIS LEGACY.

I'M GOING TO LIVE OUT HIS

LEGACY.

I'M GOING TO TAKE THE BEST

OF WHO HE WAS AND GO FORWARD

WITH IT.

AND WITH MANY OF US HAVING

FATHERS WHO ARE

DISAPPOINTMENTS OR BEING

WOUNDED BY COACHES OR WHAT

HAVE YOU, I THINK IT WAS A

GOOD LESSON.

Wendy: THAT COULD HAVE

REALLY DESTROYED HIM.

OF COURSE, KING DAVID, THE

LAST THING HE SAID TO HIS

SON SOLOMON WAS, BE STRONG

AND BE A MAN.

SHOW YOURSELF A MAN.

Wendy: SHOW YOURSELF A

MAN.

THAT WAS HIS FINAL WORDS TO

HIS SON.

Reporter: THERE ARE

ONLY ABOUT TWO PLACES WHERE

BIBLE USES BEING A MAN, ONE

IS KING DAVID, AND WHAT IS

WHEN HE SAYS STAND UP AND

PRESENT YOURSELF AS A MAN.

Wendy: BECAUSE HE

WASN'T SAYING BE A MALE

BECAUSE HE WAS ALREADY A

MALE.

YES.

Wendy: YOU'RE HOPING

THAT THE BOOK WILL INSPIRE

MOVEMENT.

DO YOU THINK THIS COULD

HAPPEN?

I DO.

BECAUSE THE BOOK IS

GENERALLY DIRECTED TOWARDS

THE MILLENNIALS.

AND MY SOLUTION IS BUILD A

CULTURE LOCALLY THAT DRAWS

UP THE BEST IN MEN, AND SO I

THINK A MOVEMENT IS GOING TO

COME OUT OF IT.

Wendy: ME AND ALL OF MY

SINGLE GIRLFRIENDS -- WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE THEM TO

SOMEONE.

WE'RE PRAYING FOR THIS BOOK

TO DO WELL.

GUYS, YOU NEED TO PUT THIS

BOOK ON YOUR CHRISTMAS WISH

LIST.

LADIES, THIS IS A GREAT

STOCKING STUFFER FOR THE MEN

IN YOUR LIFE.

IT IS CALLED "MANSFIELD'S

BOOK OF MANLY MEN."

STEVEN, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Pat: OPEN THE DOOR.

YOUR GIRLFRIENDS HAVE GOT TO

LET THE MEN IN THEIR LIFE

OPEN THE DOOR FOR THEM.

BUT IF THEY INSIST ON BEING

MACHO, THEN THE MEN WILL

SAY, OKAY, YOU'RE EQUAL TO

ME.

YOU WANT TO SMOKE CIGARS AND

THINGS LIKE THAT, THEN DON'T

ASK ME TO OPEN THE DOOR.

THERE IS A LOT IN OUR

CULTURE.

WENDY, WE'VE GOT TO SEE WHAT

WE CAN DO, BUT THE

MASCULINEIZATION OF WOMEN

AND THE FEMINIZATION OF MEN

HAS NOT BE A VERY HELPFUL

TREND IN OUR SOCIETY.

COMING UP NEXT, A HOMELESS

GIRL WHO WANDERED THE

STREETS BY DAY AND SLEPT IN

AN ABANDONED HOUSE AT

NIGHT.

SEE WHO CAME TO THIS CHILD'S

RESCUE JUST IN THE KNICK OF

TIME.

Wendy: THIS COMING

WEEKEND, NUMEROUS CITIES

ACROSS AMERICA WILL BE

SHOWING "SUPERBOOK'S" "THE

FIRST CHRISTMAS," ON

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21st.

AND YOU CAN SEE A LIST OF

THOSE CITIES ON YOUR SCREEN

RIGHT NOW.

PLUS, BETWEEN

DECEMBER 22nd AND 25th,

"THE FIRST CHRISTMAS" WILL

ALSO AIR AND VARIOUS OTHER

CITIES.

CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS

FOR THE AIRING IN YOUR CITY

OR LOG ON TO cbn.com FOR

MORE INFORMATION.

Pat: CHILDREN LOVE

"SUPERBOOK."

Wendy: I LOVE IT, TOO.

Pat: YOU LOVE IT.

IT'S VERY WELL-DONE.

OKAY, THIS IS ABOUT ALL OF

THE TIME WE'VE GOT, BUT

TODAY LINDA IS A BEAUTIFUL

LITTLE GIRL WITH A BRILLIANT

SMILE.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT

LINDA ONCE SPENT MONTHS

LIVING ON THE STREETS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: AFTER HER

MOTHER ABANDONED HER,

11-YEAR-OLD LINDA BECAME

HOMELESS.

SOME NIGHTS THIS OLD,

ABANDONED HOUSE WAS THE ONLY

PLACE SHE COULD FIND TO

SLEEP.

WHEN I SLEPT AT THAT

HOUSE, I USED TO HEAR SOME

VERY SCARY NOISES.

THEN I WOULD BECOME VERY

AFRAID.

I WANTED TO SUNRIS THE

SUNRISE TO COME QUICKLY.

Reporter: DURING THE

DAY, IT WAS HARD FOR LINDA

TO FIND SOMETHING TO EAT.

SOME PEOPLE GAVE ME

FOOD.

OTHER PEOPLE LOOKED AWAY.

Reporter: LINDA WAS

BORN IN A REMOTE VILLAGE IN

HONDURAS.

AS A RESULT SHE DIDN'T HAVE

A BIRTH CERTIFCATE AND

COULDN'T ENROLL IN SCHOOL.

I WANTED TO LEARN TO

WRITE MY NAME, READ, STUDY,

AND DO HOMEWORK.

Reporter: ONE MORNING

AN OLDER COUSIN FROM OTHER

TOWN HEARD THAT LINDA HAD

BECOME HOMELESS.

WHEN I FOUND LINDA, SHE

WAS DIRTY AND MALNOURISHED,

AND HER HEAD WAS COVERED

WITH LICE.

Reporter: MIRNA

IMMEDIATELY INVITED LINDA TO

LIVE WITH HER FAMILY.

BUT THAT WAS ONLY POSSIBLE

BECAUSE CBN RECENTLY HELPED

HER TO START A BUSINESS.

BECAUSE I RECEIVED THIS

HELP FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING," I KNEW WE COULD

AFFORD TO TAKE LINDA IN.

NOW SHE HAS A HOME AND A

FAMILY.

I LOVE MY BEAUTIFUL BED,

AND I AM NOT AFRAID OF

ANYTHING ANYMORE.

I AM SO HAPPY.

Reporter: FINALLY,

"OPERATION BLESSING" HELPED

MIRNA TO GET A BIRTH

CERTIFCATE SO SHE CAN NOW GO

TO SCHOOL.

THANKS AGAIN, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

WITHOUT YOUR HELP I WOULD

NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HELP

LINDA.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME

TO FIND A FAMILY, AND THANK

YOU FOR HELPING ME TO GO TO

SCHOOL.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

Pam:

Pat: FOLKS, YOU CAN

HELP SOMEBODY LIKE THAT

CHILD AND SO MANY OTHERS

LIKE HER.

IT IS THE END OF THE YEAR,

AND YOU CAN DO SOMETHING

SIGNIFICANT.

I AM A GREAT BELIEVER, IF

YOU HAVE STOCK THAT HAS GONE

UP IN VALUE, AND A LOT OF

STOCK HAS GONE UP IN VALUE

THIS YEAR, AND IF YOU SELL

IT, YOU WILL BE HIT WITH A

SUBSTANTIAL CAPTAIN GAINS

TAX.

BUT YOU CAN DONATE THAT

STOCK AS STOCK TO CBN.

YOU CAN GET A FULL DEDUCTION

UP TO THE RULES OF THE

INTERNAL REVENUE, AND YOU

DON'T PAY ANY CAPITAL GAINS

TAX.

IT IS NOT A BAD DEAL.

IT IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO

HELP A MINISTRY LIKE THIS.

IF YOU WANT ANYMORE

INFORMATION, OUR TELEPHONE

NUMBER IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT

FROM PLANNED GIVING,

1-800-333-2373.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM TODAY'S POWER

MINUTES, TAKEN FROM

PROVERBS: "HE WHO HEEDS THE

WORD WISELY WILL FIND GOOD.

AND WHOEVER TRUSTS IN THE

LORD, HAPPY IS HE."

THAT'S A NICE THING FOR

CHRISTMAS.

HAPPY.

WELL, TOMORROW WE'VE GOT TWO

OF "DUCK DYNASTY"'S FIRST

LADIES WHO TALK ABOUT THEIR

CHRISTMAS.

WE APPRECIATE THOSE PEOPLE.

THE ROBERTSON FAMILY.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT IS PART

OF OUR CLAN OR NOT, BUT THEY

HAVE AN ENORMOUSLY POPULAR

SHOW.

YOU'LL HEAR HOW THEY DO

CHRISTMAS.

FOR ALL OF US, WENDY AND I,

WE'LL SEE YOU LATER.

BYE-BYE.
