IT IS NOT GOING TO STOP ME

FROM WISHING PEOPLE MERRY

CHRISTMAS.

NEW YORKERS SENT A CLEAR

MESSAGE.

THE PHRASES HOLY INFANT AND

CHRIST THE SAVIOR WERE REMOVED

FROM THE SONG "SILENT NIGHT"

BECAUSE SCHOOL OFFICIALS DIDN'T

WANT TO OFFEND ANYONE.

SEVERAL PARENTS OBJECTED TO THE

DELETIONS SAYING TAKING THE

WORDS OUT OF THE SONG IS

OFFENSIVE TO CHRISTIANS.

SCHOOL OFFICIALS LATER ADMITTED

IT WAS A MISTAKE TO REMOVE THOSE

WORDS.

PAUL STRAND WAS ON HAND TO

PRODUCTION.

MASSIVE LIVE NATIVITY SCENES,

CAMELS, KINGS AND FLYING ANGELS,

THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE WHO

CAME AS AN INNOCENT BABE WHO

LIFE, SINCE FORGIVEN AND PROMISE

AND HOPE OF HEAVEN.

WHAT ELSE COULD BE BETTER.

REPORTER: IT IS VERY MUCH

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST AND THE GIFT

HE HAS BROUGHT TO EVERYONE.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEW NEWS, REPORTING

FROM PRESTONWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH

OUTSIDE OF DALLAS, TEXAS.

COMING UP, HOLLYWOOD MOVIE

REVIEWS, A REVIEWERS TAKE ON

FAMILY FRIENDLY MOVIES THIS

CHRISTMAS SEASON.

BUYERS BEWARE MILLIONS OF

TARGET CUSTOMERS MAY HAVE HAD

CREDIT CARD INFORMATION STOLEN.

HACKERS WERE ABLE TO GET ACCOUNT

NUMBERS, EXPIRATION DATES AND

SECURITY CODES OF 40 MILLION

SHOPPERS, FROM NOVEMBER

27TH-DECEMBER 15TH.

TARGET ADVISES CUSTOMERS TO

CHECK STATEMENTS CAREFULLY.

IT IS NOT A MATTER ABOUT THE

CREDIT CARD YOU USED.

THEY CAN GET YOUR IDENTITY,

ENOUGH INFORMATION TO OPEN

ANOTHER CARD.

CUSTOMERS SUSPECT THERE HAS

BEEN UNAUTHORIZED ACTIVITY ON

THEIR CARD SHOULD REPORT IT TO

THEIR CREDIT CARD COMPANIES

IMMEDIATELY.

FATHERS ARE MORE INVOLVED

WITH CHILDREN, THEY BATHE,

CHANGE DIAPERS OR HELP THEM GET

DRESSED SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK.

90% OF FATHERS EAT MEALS AND

TALK WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH

THEIN

THEIR WEEK.

THE WEEKEND IS HERE AND IT IS

TIME WITH MOVIE REVIEWS WITH

BOB.

EARLIER, WENDY GRIFFITH ASKED

HIM ABOUT THE WEEKEND'S

OFFERINGS.

WHAT IS THE SCHOOL ON "ANCHOR

MAN"

AND "MADEA'S CHRISTMAS."

WILL FERRELL DIDN'T GIVE US

ANYTHING TO CELEBRATE.

SPEAKING OF CHRISTMAS, TYLER

PERRY'S CHRISTMAS, TWO AND A

HALF OUT OF FIVE FOR FAMILY

FRIENDLINESS.

HE TELL US JESUS IS THE REAL

REASON FOR THE SEASON.

ESPECIALLY WHEN LARRY THE CABLE

GUY SHOWS UP, COMMENTS GET

SLEAZY, VERY SLEAZY, VERY

INAPPROPRIATE.

NOT CHRISTMASY.

THAT'S TOO BAD.

ALSO DINOSAURS, WHAT DID YOU

THINK OF "WALKING WITH

DINOSAURS?"

IF OUR VIEWERS HAVE A FIFTH

GREAT BOY THEY ARE GOING TO LIKE

THE STORY OF THE BROTHERS WHO

ARE LEAF-EATING DINOSAURS TRYING

TO SURVIVE IN THE DINOSAUR

WORLD.

PARENTS WON'T LIKE IT.

MIGHT NEED SOMETHING ELSE TO DO

IN THE THEATRE.

DIALOGUE IS CHEESY, EVEN THOUGH

THE SPECIAL EFFECTS ARE PROBABLY

PRETTY COOL.

QUITE A BIT OF TOILET HUMOR.

ZERO IN ON THAT FIFTH GRADE BOY,

THEY MIGHT LIKE IT.

WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT

"SAVING MR. BANKS?"

BASED ON MARY POPINS BOOKS

AND MAKE THEM A DISNEY PROPERTY,

FOR A PG 13, ON THE LIGHTER

SIDE, WE GIVE THIS FOUR OUT OF

FIVE FOR FAMILY FRIENDLINESS.

IT HAS A LOT OF GOOD THINGS TO

SAY ABOUT FATHERHOOD AND

FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS.

THERE IS A LITTLE BIT, HOWEVER

ON THE DARKER SIDE OF SOME OF

THE ISSUES TO GET THERE.

STILL AROUND AGE 12-13 ON UP,

THIS HAS GREAT POSSIBILITIES FOR

THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON.

GOOD NEWS FOR A LOT OF

PEOPLE.

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME, MERRY

CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, WENDY.

UP NEXT, YOU MAY THINK YOU

ARE EATING HEALTHY, WHAT YOU

DON'T KNOW COULD BE KILLING YOU.

FIND OUT WHAT IT IS AND HOW YOU

CAN FIGHT IT AFTER THIS.

TURNING NOW TO HEALTH NEWS,

YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT BEING FAT

BUT FIT.

A NEW STUDY FINDS THE IDEA YOU

CAN BE OVERWEIGHT AND OBESE AND

BE HEALTHY IS WRONG.

FAT BUT FIT MEANS THEY CAN CARRY

THE POUNDS BUT STILL HAVE

REGULAR BLOOD PRESSURE.

THEY STILL FACE A HIGHER RISK OF

DEATH, STROKES OR HEART ATTACKS

THAN FOLKS THAT CARRY NORMAL

WEIGHT.

BELLY FAT AT MIDDLE AGE CAN

LEAD TO PROBLEMS WITH MIND, THEY

ARE THREE AND A HALF TIMES TO

DEVELOP MEMORY LOSS AND DEMENTIA

WHEN THEY ARE OLDER ACCORDING TO

A STUDY IN CHICAGO.

THEY HAVE A SMALLER AMOUNT OF A

KEY PROTEIN.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR MEMORY AND

LEARNING.

LOSING WEIGHT COULD HELP YOU

AVOID MEMORY PROBLEMS AS YOU GET

OLDER.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT YOU COULD

BE STARVING YOURSELF INTO

OBESITY.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THE MORE EMPTY CALORIES YOU EAT,

THE MORE YOUR BODY CRAVES.

THIS LEADS TO OBESITY AND A

WHOLE HOST OF OTHER HEALTH

PROBLEMS.

WE ALL KNOW GOING WITHOUT

FOOD CAUSES MALNUTRITION.

PEOPLE WHO EAT PLENTY CAN ALSO

SUFFER AND BECOME VERY SICK.

ASK MIRA.

WHEN I WAS 30, I WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH ADVANCED

OSTEOPOROSIS.

IT WAS EQUIVALENT TO AN 80 YEAR

OLD.

SHE DIDN'T WANT DRUGS AND

SEARCHED FOR A NATURAL

TREATMENT.

I AM GOING TO TRY TAKING

CALCIUM.

THAT LED TO MAGNESIUM.

MAGNESIUM LED TO VITAMIN D AND

BORAT AND K.

THE HEART THAT HAPPENED TO ME

WAS A MICRO NUTRIENT DEFICIENCY

MY BONES WERE STARVING FOR.

AFTER TWO YEARS, HER

OSTEOPOROSIS DISAPPEARED.

NOW SHE AND HER HUSBAND WANT TO

SPREAD THE DANGERS OF MICRO

NUTRIENT DEFICIENCDEFICIENCY.

IT HAS TO DO WITH CANCER,

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, METABOLISM,

WHETHER YOU SLEEP WELL,

DIABETES.

ALSO HAS TO DO A LOT WITH

OBESITY.

MICRO NUTRIENT DEFICIENT IS

THE MOST DANGEROUS HEALTH

CONDITION.

WE HAVE NO IDEA THIS IS EVEN A

PROBLEM.

THIS EFFECTS 90% OF AMERICANS

WHICH MEANS NEARLY ALL OF US

LACK AT LEAST ONE CRITICAL

VITAMIN OR MINERAL NECESSARY FOR

GOOD HEALTH, POTASSIUM, CALCIUM,

MANGANEGNESIU

MAGNESIUM.

VITAMINS A, D, AND C.

PROCESSED FOOD IS KEY.

IN THEIR BOOK, SOME FOODS TAKE

AWAY MICRO NUTRIENTS.

FOR INSTANCE FOS FORIC ACID

CARBONATED DRINKS INTERFERES

WITH BODY TO ABSORB CALCIUM.

MOST AMERICANS HAVE NO IDEA.

NEW MOST OF US KNOW PROCESSED

FOOD IS BAD.

WHAT IS SHOCKING, EVEN FRESH

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES AREN'T AS

HEALTHY AS YOU MIGHT THINK.

APPLES CONTAIN 77% FEWER

MINERALS THAN 80 YEARS AGO?

WHY THE CHANGE?

OVERFARMING.

IT ROBS THE SOIL OF PRECIOUS

MICRO NUTRIENTS.

SHIPPING LONG DISTANCES ADDS TO

THE PROBLEM.

PICKING IT TOO SOON AND EXPOED

POSING IT TO LIGHT, AND AIR.

MOST ANIMALS ARE RAISED INSIDE

FACTORY FARMS AND FED UNHEALTHY

GRAINS AND WORSE.

THEY ARE FED UP TO SEVEN

BOUNDS A DAY THAT THESE CANDY

MANUFACTURES ARE THROWING AT THE

FARMERS, FATTEN UP THE CATTLE,

SPIKE THEIR INSULIN AND BE ABLE

TO SELL THE MEAT AND TASTE

BETTER.

THIS IS TO ME AN ABOMINATION.

IF YOU ARE A MEAT EATER,

CHOOSE GRASS-FED BEEF.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE ANIMAL

IS OUT IN THE SUNSHINE AND

EATING GRASS, 400% MORE VITAMIN

A AND CLA.

THIS IS A KIND OF FAT THAT

SCIENCE THINKS WILL PREVENT

CANCER AND BURN OUR BODY FAT.

THIS IS A NATURALLY OCCURRING

FAT THEY CAN ONLY GET WHEN THEY

EAT GRASS.

IT ISN'T JUST CAUSED BY AN

UNHEALTHY DIET.

LIFE STYLE CHOICES CAN DEPLETE

OUR BODIES VITAMINS AND

MINERALS.

SMOKING, LIVING IN POLLUTED

CITY, STRESS, AND SURPRISINGLY,

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS.

THAT IS SCARY BECAUSE WHEN

YOU BECOME DEFICIENT, WE BECOME

SICK.

TO MAKE UP FOR WHAT YOUR BODY

IS MISSING, TAKE A SUPPLEMENT.

CHOOSE CAREFULLY.

MOST MULTIVITAMINS DON'T

DECENT GRATE.

HIGHLY ABSORBABLE POWDERED

MULTIVITAMINS WITHOUT BINDERS,

SUGARS OR ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS.

ALSO DESIGNED TO TAKE MORE THAN

ONCE A DAY TO ACCOUNT FOR WATER

SOLUBILI

SOLUBILITY.

WE CAN GET THE MICRO NUTRIENTS

OUR BODIES CRAVE BY AVOIDING

PROCESSED FOOD, EATING MORE

LOCAL PRODUCE AND SUPPLEMENTING

PROPERLY.

IF YOU ARE WONDERING IF YOU

GET ENOUGH, TAKE A FREE QUIZ AT

CBN.COM.

STAY WITH US, WE ARE COMING

RIGHT BACK.

THIS TIME OF YEAR,

NEIGHBORHOODS ARE ABLAZE WITH

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.

WE TURNED AUTHOR ACE COLLINS

FOR ILLUMINATION.

ACE, NOTHING GETS ME MORE IN

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS THAN

SEEING THE HOMES LIT UP FOR THE

HOLIDAYS.

WHEN DID THIS TRADITION OF

LIGHTING UP OUR HOMES BEGIN?

1940S-50S.

THAT IS WHEN LIGHTS LIKE THESE

CAME DOWN TO THE PRICES NORMAL

PEOPLE COULD AFFORD.

REALLY AN AUTOMOTE I AGE.

PILING IN CARS, STATION WAGONS

AND GO LOOK AT LIGHTS IN

NEIGHBORHOODS.

IT STARTED WITH MARTIN LUTHER,

HE TIED A CANDLE ON THE TREE.

I DOUBT HE ENVISIONED THIS

TAKING PLACE.

THAT CANDLE TO HIM REPRESENTED

THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.

THAT LIGHT HAS BEEN ILLUMINATING

THE WORLD EVER SINCE AND THESE

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS REPRESENT THAT

ILLUMINATION.

IS THERE A MEANING BEHIND THE

DIFFERENT COLORS?

THERE IS.

WHITE REPRESENTS THE PURITY OF

CHRIST.

THEN YOU HAVE THE RED LIGHTS

THAT REPRESENT THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST THAT WAS SHED ON THE

CROSS.

WE HAVE THE GREEN LIGHTS THAT

REPRESENT THE EVER GREEN TREES,

EVER LASTING LIFE.

THINGS THAT NEVER DIE IN THE

BLEAKEST DAYS OF WINTER.

MOST IMPORTANT IS THAT THEY

REMIND US OF THE LIGHT OF THE

WORLD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE

REAL MEANING FOR SEASON.

THINK OF THAT, ONE LITTLE

LIGHT THAT HAS COME TO NOW GLOW

ALL OVER THE GLOBAL EVEN

BRIGHTER THAN THE LIGHTS WE ARE

SEEING TONIGHT.

BEAUTIFUL.

THAT IS IT FOR NOW, ON "CBN

NEWS TODAY" YOU CAN FIND MORE OF

THE ISSUES AT CBN.COM.

YOU CAN DO IT ON FACEBOOK

OR@CBN NEWS ON TWITTER.

HAVE A FABULOUS FRIDAY.
