BURNED ALIVE.

THE TRAILER IGNITED IN

FLAMES.

HE HAD A BRUSH WITH

DEATH.

JUST LET ME DIE.

PLUS, LOVE LOST AND

LESSONS LEARNED.

A CENTS PEA CBN HOST TELLS

ALL ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WENDY IS GOING TO TELL ALL.

SHE'LL BEAR HER SOUL FOR YOU

ON TELEVISION.

BY THE WAY, YESTERDAY IN

VIRGINIA BEACH, IT WAS 60°.

IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND BALMY

AND LOVELY.

TODAY IT IS HEADIN HEADING

TOWARDS 16 OR 13.

I WENT OUT YESTERDAY, AND

IT WAS AROUND 50°.

WHILE I WAS TAKING A WALK,

THAT COLD FRONT CAME IN AND

HAIR EVERYWHERE, AND IT WAS

FREEZING.

Pat: THAT WAS GHASTLY.

THOSE GENIUSES THAT DECIDED

TO HOLD THE SUPER BOWL IN

NEW YORK, I THINK THEY'RE

SWEATING BULLETS.

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO?

YOU GET READY FOR SOME OF

THE COLDEST WEATHER YET THIS

YEAR.

FROM THE MIDWEST TO THE

SOUTH TO THE EAST COAST,

ANOTHER STORM IS COMING.

Wendy: SNOW, ICE, AND

FREEZING RAIN ARE SET TO

WREAK HAVOC TO REGIONS

ALREADY BATTERED BY LAST

WEEK'S RAIN AND COLD.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE MONSTER

WINTER STORM IS DUMPING SNOW

AND ICE FROM SOUTHERN TEXAS

TO THE SOUTHERN EAST.

THEY HAVE ISSUED WINTER

STORM WATCHES AND WARNINGS

FROM VIRGINIA ALL THE WAY TO

THE GULF COAST.

ROAD CREWS ARE TRYING TO

PREPARE FOR THE WORST, BUT

MANY COMMUNITIES ARE RUNNING

OUT OF SALTS.

THE ROADS ARE REAL ICY.

AND THE SALT DOESN'T WORK IN

THESE TEMPERATURES TOO

WELL.

IT IS NOT REALLY MELTING

ANYTHING.

Reporter: FORECASTERS

WARN OF RECORD-BREAKING

TEMPERATURES AND

CONDITIONS.

TWO MAJOR CONCERNS WITH

THIS AIR MASS, NUMBER ONE,

THE UNBEARABLE COLD ACROSS

THE NORTH.

THIS IS A DANGEROUSLY COLD

AIR MASS.

THIS COLD IS SETTING THE

STAGE FOR A MAJOR WINTER

STORM IN THE SOUTHEAST.

DON'T GET A LOT OF BEES

ACROSS THE REGION, AND IT IS

GOING TO BE BAD ACROSS THE

I-10 FOR TRAVELLERS.

MOST OF THE COUNTRY IS

GOING TO HAVE A FRIGID

FEBRUARY.

IT WILL BE CENTERED OVER THE

CENTER PART OF THE UNITED

STATES.

LOTS OF STORMINESS AND SNOW

AND COLD FOR THE UNITED

STATES.

IT IS GOING TO BE THE

COLDEST WINTER, PROBABLY,

SIPS THE WINTERS IN THE LATE

'70s.

Reporter: BLINDING,

BLIZZARD-LIKE CONDITIONS

FORCED THE CANCELLATION OF

HUNDREDS OF AIRLINE FLIGHTS,

LEAVING THOUSANDS STRANDED

AT AIRPORTS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

CHICAGO IS LIKE A POLAR DEEP

FREEZE, WITH -16°

TEMPERATURES THIS MORNING.

IN NEW JERSEY, ICE JAMS ARE

CLOGGING THE DELAWARE

RIVER.

THE COAST GUARD CUTTER MADE

ITS WAY DOWN THE RIVER TO

TRY AND MOVE THE PROCESS

ALONG.

IN OHIO, GIANT SNOWBALLS

FORMED ACROSS THE AREA.

THIS OHIO MAN SAYS IT IS ONE

OF THE WORST WINTERS HE HAS

SEEN IN HIS 30 PLUS YEARS OF

SNOWPLOWING.

IT HAS BEEN BRUTAL IN THE

LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS.

EVERYBODY IS WORKING A LOT

OF HOURS, PUTTING A LOT OF

TIME IN.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

SCHOOLS IN CHICAGO,

MINNEAPOLIS, AND ST. PAUL

ARE CLOSED AGAIN.

IT'S A BIG HEADACHE FOR

FRUSTRATED PARENTS.

ALTHOUGH IT IS COLD, I

DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT IS

CLOSED.

IT HAS TURNED EVERYTHING

INTO CHAOS.

THEY COULD JUST GO INTO

SCHOOL, STAY IN SCHOOL, AND

THEY DON'T NEED TO HAVE

OUTDOOR RECESS.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: HERE, IF IT GETS

COLD, A LITTLE BIT OF ICE,

THEY SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT USED TO

DRIVING IN THOSE

CONDITIONS.

BUT, HEY, COLD WEATHER

DOESN'T STOP HOT AIR.

THE HOT AIR IN WASHINGTON IS

GOING TO KEEP GOING.

SPEECH-MAKING POLITICIANS

WILL BE CHEERING.

I'M NOT SURE IN WASHINGTON

IF THEY'LL EVEN BE ABLE TO

GET INTO THE CAPITAL, BOUT

WE SEE.

THE PEOPLE HERE STAY AT THE

FOUNDER'S INN SO THEY DON'T

HAVE TO TRAVEL.

I'M GOING TO DO THAT.

I ONLY LIVE 15 MINUTES FROM

HERE.

EVEN LAST WEEK, WHEN WE HAD

THAT BLIZZARD, IT WAS NICE.

I COULD JUST WALK OVER IN

THE SNOW.

Pat: ICE IS DIFFICULT

TO DRIVE IN, EVEN IF YOU

HAVE 4-WHEEL DRIVE.

PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO KNOW HOW

TO HANDLE THAT STUFF.

AND SUDDEN ACCELERATION OR

DECELERATION STARTS THE CAR

IN A SKID.

UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE

DOING, IT IS VERY, VERY

DIFFICULT.

THE ADVICE IS, FOLKS, I

DON'T CARE WHAT THEY SAY.

STAY HOME AND STAY SAFE AND

WATCH OUR TELEVISION

PROGRAM.

> WELL, AS THE PRESIDENT

TONIGHT GIVES THE STATE OF

THE UNION ADDRESS, JOHN

JESSUP HAS THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE PRESIDENT IS OFFERING

SOME OF HIS OLD IDEAS AGAIN

IN HIS STATE OF THE UNION

SPEECH.

HIS MAIN THEME IS THAT THE

GOVERNMENT CAN HELP PROVIDE

OPPORTUNITIES TO AMERICANS

WHO AREN'T DOING SO WELL IN

THE ECONOMY.

HE IS ALSO MAKING THE CASE

FORú;hsACTING ALONE, IF

CONGRESS WON'T GO ALONG WITH

HIS PLANS, AN APPROACH SOME

SAY IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S MESSAGE

COMES AT A TIME OF LOW

PUBLIC APPROVAL RATINGS.

ONLY 37% OF AMERICANS HAVE

CONFIDENCE IN HIM TO MAKE

THE RIGHT DECISIONS FOR

AMERICA'S FUTURE.

AND WHILE OBAMACARE REMAINS

DEEPLY UNPOPULAR, SOME

REPUBLICAN SENATORS HAVE

OFFERED A NEW HEALTH CARE

REFORM PLAN THAT DEPENDS

MORE ON THE FREE MARKET AND

LESS ON THE GOVERNMENT.

> AND INVESTORS ARE

WONDERING IF THE WORST IS

OVER ON WALL STREET AFTER

STOCKS FELL SHARPLY IN THE

LAST FEW DAYS.

THE STOCKS HAVE NOT HAD A

SERIOUS CORRECTION SINCE

2011.

ANALYSTS SAY IT LIKE LOOKS

LIKE ANOTHER PULLBACK.

HOST, HOWEVER, THINK THE

LONG-TERM TREND FOR STOCKS

IS UP.

PAT, WHAT IS YOUR TAKE?

Pat: MY TAKE IS THAT

THINGS ARE VERY DIFFICULT

RIGHT NOW.

I THINK THAT THE MARKET IS

WAITING FOR SOME KIND OF A

SERIOUS CORRECTION.

THEY'RE WORRIED VERY MUCH

ABOUT CHINA.

IT LOOKS LIKE CHINA IS GOING

TO GO INTO A TAIL SPIN.

THEY WERE COUNTING -- HAVE

BEEN COUNTING ON A 9%

GROWTH.

SOMETIMES IT HAS BEEN CLOSER

TO 10%.

CERTAINLY MORE THAN 8%.

NOW IT IS IN THE 7% OR LESS

RANGE, AND THEY HIDE SOME OF

THE FIGURES.

THERE ARE A LOT OF BAD LOANS

OUT THERE, A LOTO LOT OF

THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND

BANKS IN CHINA ARE IN

TROUBLE.

AND SOME SAY IF CHINA STOPS

BUYING, WE'RE IN TROUBLE ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

THE STOCK MARKET IS IN

PRECARIOUS POSITION.

IT LOOKS LIKE YOU COULD GO

TO GOLD OR SILVER, BUT WE'RE

NOT EVEN SURE IF THE

COMMODITIES ARE GOING TO GO

UP.

IT JUST ISN'T A VERY HAPPY

TIME.

BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING,

PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

THE ECONOMY.

BECAUSE THEY HAVE A

PRESIDENT THEY HAVE NO

CONFIDENCE IN.

THEY DON'T THINK HE KNOWS

WHAT HE IS DOING.

HE HAS A GROUP AROUND HIM

WHO ESSENTIALLY ARE

PROGRESSIVE SOCIALISTS,

WHATEVER YOU CALL THEM, WHO

WANT MORE AND MORE

GOVERNMENT, WHICH IS

COMPRESSING THE FREE

MARKET.

AND HE IS PUTTING ROADBLOCK

AFTER ROADBLOCK IN THE WAY

OF BUSINESS, SMALL BUSINESS,

LARGE BUSINESS.

HE IS TRYING TO PUT ON MORE

TAXES.

EVERYTHING THAT YOU COULD

POSSIBLY DO TO CRIMP THE

ECONOMY, THEY'RE DOING IT.

AND SO INVESTORS ARE VERY

WORRIED ABOUT THE STATE OF

NOT ONLY THE UNITED STATES'

ECONOMY, BUT THE WHOLE

WORLD.

SO IT IS NOT A HAPPY TIME.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE UNITED

STATES DOLLAR, INTERESTINGLY

ENOUGH, IS GOING TO BE ONE

OF THE MAJOR BALL WORKS

AGAINST A MAJOR SELLOFF.

JOHN?

Reporter: SUPPORTERS OF

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI SAY AN

IRANIAN OFFICIAL RECENTLY

OFFERED A GLIMMER OF HOPE.

THE IMPRISONED AMERICAN

COULD BE FREE.

IT REPORTS THAT THE FOREIGN

MINISTER SUGGESTS CLEMENCY

COULD BE AN OPTION.

THE FOREIGN MINISTRY PLIED

TO A DIRECT QUESTION ABOUT

PASTOR ABEDINI BY SAYING, WE

HAVE VARIOUS CLEMENCY

POLICIES THAT HAVE BEEN

INTRODUCED IN THE PAST AND

CAN BE INTRODUCED AGAIN IN

THESE CASES.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THE EFFORTS TO FREE PASTOR

ABEDINI BY GOING TO

> MONDAY MARKED

INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST

REMEMBRANCE DAY FROM POLAND

TO THE U.N. TO ISRAEL.

THEY HONORED THE DEATH OF

SOME SIX MILLION JEWS.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY FROM JERUSALEM.

Reporter: THE WORLD

REMEMBERED THE HOLOCAUST,

BUT FOR SURVIVORS, THE

MEMORIES NEVER FADE.

THERE IS NOT ONE DAY WHEN

WE DON'T THINK ABOUT THE

EVENTS HIDDEN IN OUR MINDS.

THERE IS NOT ONE DAY.

IT ALWAYS RETURNS.

DREAMS RETURN.

WE STILL HEAR IN OUR DREAMS

DOGS BARKING, THOSE GERMAN

COMMANDS.

Reporter: IN AUSCHWITZ,

MORE THAN 50 KNESSET MEMBERS

JOINED WORLD LEADERS TO MARK

THE LIBERATION OF THE WORST

OF THE NAZI DEATH CAMPS.

THEY SHARED MEMORIES OF THE

PLACE WHERE NAZIS MURDERED

MORE THAN ONE MILLION JEWS,

WHERE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF

THOSE ARRIVING WAS SOMETIMES

MEASURED IN MINUTES.

DOGS WERE BARKING AND

THERE WAS A TERRIBLE SMELL.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE

SMELL WAS.

WE COULD ONLY SEE THE

CHIMNEY'S FLAMES A COUPLE OF

METERS HIGH.

WE DIDN'T KNOW ITHES

CREMATORIUM.

Reporter: AT THEU.N.,

STEVEN SPIELBERG SHARED THE

HOPE OF HOLOCAUST

SURVIVORS.

SURVIVORS AND WITNESSES

OFTEN SAY THAT THEIR DEAREST

HOPE, THE HOPE THAT HELPED

KEEP THEM ALIVE WAS TO BE

HEARD AND TO BE BELIEVED AND

TO BE UNDERSTOOD.

Reporter: SPIELBERG

MADE "SHINDDLER'S LIST,"

ABOUT THE STORY WHO SAVED

THOUSANDS DURING THE

HOLOCAUST.

IT HAS SHOWN LIKE A

SHINING STAR, LIKE THERE IS

ALWAYS SOMETHING SOMEBODY

CAN DO.

Reporter: ON

INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST

REMEMBRANCE DAY, OVER AND

OVER AROUND THE WORLD,

WHETHER AT AUSCHWITZ, THE

U.N., OR HERE IN JERUSALEM,

AT THE NATIONAL HOLOCAUST

MUSEUM, THE REFRAME WAS THE

SAME: "NEVER AGAIN."

WHEN WE SAY THAT PHRASE,

"NEVER AGAIN," IT SHOULDN'T

BE SOMETHING WE SAY WITHOUT

THINKING.

IT SHOULD MEAN WE ARE TAKING

AN ACTIVE STAND, THAT WE

DON'T WANT SOMETHING LIKE

THAT TO HAPPEN EVER AGAIN.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO COME

HERE AND TO GIVE TESTIMONY

THAT WE WERE PRISONERS.

IT SHOULD BE A LESSON.

SUCH EVENTS SHOULDN'T HAPPEN

AGAIN.

THEIRS WERE JOURNEYS INTO

THE HOL COST.

THEY CANNOT EMERGE FROM IT.

AND NEITHER CAN THE WORLD

UNTIL THERE ARE NO MORE

GENOCIDES, UNTIL THE

UNTHINKABLE BECOME

IMPOSSIBLE.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Reporter: AND TURNING

NOW TO PERSONAL HEALTH

ISSUES, SOME PEOPLE WHO NEED

TO LOSE A LOT OF WEIGHT

CAN'T SEEM TO DO IT THE

NATURAL WAY, AND TURN TO

WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY.

BUT DO THE RESULTS LAST?

LORI JOHNSON TAKES A LOOK.

Reporter: LISA STRAPP

IS LOVING HER NEW, THINNER

BODY, AND SAYS HE OWES IT

ALL TO HER WEIGHT LOSS

SURGERY, ALSO KNOWN AS BAR

BARIATRIC SURGERY.

I'M SORRY I DIDN'T DO IT

SOONER.

THE REST OF MY LIFE IS IN

FRONT OF ME, AND THERE IS

NOTHING TO STOP ME AT THIS

POINT.

Reporter: LIKE MOST

PEOPLE WHO UNDERGO BARIATRIC

SURGERY, LISA LOST MOST OF

HER WEIGHT IN THE FIRST YEAR

AFTER THE PROCEDURE.

BUT NOW IT HAS BEEN THREE

YEARS AND SHE HAS MANAGED TO

KEEP IT OFF.

IT HAS BEEN A COMPLETELY

NEW LIFE FOR ME AND I JUST

EMBRACED IT AND ENJOY EVERY

DAY NOW.

Reporter: DR. ANITA

STUDY 2,000 PEOPLE WHO

UNDERWENT ONE OF TWO TYPES

OF WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY.

SHE DISCOVERED MANY SUCCESS

STORIES THREE YEARS AFTER

THEIR PROCEDURE.

THERE WAS SUBSTANTIAL

WEIGHT CHANGE FOLLOWING BOTH

PROCEDURES THREE YEARS AFTER

SURGERY.

AND WE SAW IMPROVEMENTS IN

DIABETES, LIPIDS, AND BLOOD

PRESSURE AT THE THREE-YEAR

TIMEFRAME.

Reporter: THE PATIENTS

LOST, ON AVERAGE, ABOUT ONE

FOURTH OF THEIR INITIAL

WEIGHT.

ABOUT HALF SAW IMPROVEMENT

IN THEIR DIABETES.

AND BLOOD PRESSURE IMPROVED

IN ALMOST EVERYONE.

THE RESULTS WERE PUBLISHED

IN THE JOURNAL OF THE

AMERICAN MEDICAL

ASSOCIATION.

STUDY AUTHORS SAY WHILE

THERE WERE EU78

IMPROVEMENTS, THEY WERE LESS

THAN WHAT HAS BEEN SHOWN IN

PRIOR STUDIES.

AND WHY MANY DOCTORS

PRESCRIBE BARIATRIC SURGERY

TO THEIR OVERWEIGHT

PATIENTS, THERE ARE PLENTY

WHO THINK IT SHOULD ONLY BE

USED IN EXTREME CASES.

FOR SOME PATIENTS WHO ARE

MORBIDLY OBESE, THEY'RE 600,

700, 800 POUNDS, THAT

PERHAPS IS THE BEST CHOICE

FOR THEM AS THEY ARE TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO LOSE

WEIGHT.

HOWEVER, I SUGGEST THAT

PEOPLE TRY TO DO A MEDICALLY

SUPERVISED PROGRAM BEFORE TO

SEE HOW MUCH WEIGHT THEY CAN

USE.

Reporter: DR. SCHNEIDER

SAYS REGARDLESS OF HOW

PATIENTS LOOSE THEIR WEIGHT,

THE KEY TO KEEPING IT OFF IS

MAINTENANCE.

EXERCISING, THE

ACCOUNTABILITY WITH FAMILY

MEMBERS, FRIENDS, OR

Facebook, IS CRUCIAL

BECAUSE ANY TOOL CAN HELP

SOMEBODY LOSE WEIGHT

QUICKLY, BUT YOU HAVE TO

ADDRESS WHAT THE REASONS

PEOPLE BECAME OVERWEIGHT IN

THE FIRST PLACE.

Reporter: IN FACT, HE

HAS HELPED BARIATRIC SURGERY

PATIENTS WHO GAINED BACK

THEIR WEIGHT LOSE IT AGAIN

WITH DIET AND KEEP IT OFF

WITH A STRONG SUPPORT

SYSTEM.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

PAT, AS WE JUST HEARD IN

LORI'S STORY, IT IS NOT FOR

EVERYONE, BUT IT IS AMAZING

THE RESULTS THE PROCEDURE

CAN PRODUCE.

Pat: I AM NOT A FAN OF

THAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, LORI.

I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT IS A

GOOD THING, EXCEPT FOR WHAT

THAT DOCTOR SAID, THOSE WHO

ARE MORBIDLY OBESE,

600 POUNDS, CAN HARDLY MOVE,

THAT MAY BE THE ONLY

SOLUTION FOR THEM.

THERE ARE MUCH EASIER WAYS.

THEY HAVE JUST COME OUT WITH

A STUDY TALKING ABOUT FOR

THOSE WHO HAVE LIVER DISEASE

THAT THIS CONCENTRATED USE

OF GREEN TEA HAS BEEN FOUND

DETRIMENTAL, BUT IN TERMS OF

THE AVERAGE PERSON, THEY'VE

GOT GREEN COFFEE, GREEN TEA,

AND THEY'VE GOT ALPHA LIPOIC

ACID, AND MORE THAN ANYTHING

YOU LOSE YOUR APPETITE.

I THINK THE IDEA OF THE

EXTREME MEASURES -- YOU

DON'T DID ANY OF THAT?

YOU DON'T HAVE TO.

Wendy: I DID MY GREEN

DRINK THIS MORNING.

Pat: YOU DID A GREEN

DRINK?

Wendy: IF I BRING IT IN

ONE MORNING, WILL YOU TRY

IT?

Pat: OF COURSE.

SOMEBODY GAVE US A JUICER,

AND ONE DAY I WAS READING

AND MY WIFE WAS IN THE

KITCHEN, AND IT SOUNDED LIKE

A JET AIRPLANE TAKING OFF.

I WAS, LIKE, WHAT ARE YOU

DOING?

AND SHE SAID I'M JUICING.

AND SHE PUT ALL OF THE

VEGETABLES IN IT, AND YOU

GET A TINY GLASS OF JUICE,

BUT IT WAS DELICIOUS.

Wendy: WHEN I WAS SICK

A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, I

JUICED GARLIC AND GINGER.

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO

DIE.

IT BURNED MY STOMACH.

DO NOT DO THAT AT HOME.

DO NOT JUICE A LOT OF GINGER

AND GARLIC.

MAYBE A TINY BIT, BUT I

OVERDID IT.

Pat: THIS I WOULD NOT

DO.

BUT SHE HAD LITTLE BITS OF

APPLE AND THIS, THAT, AND

THE OTHER.

AND SHE HAD KALE AND -- YOU

NAME IT.

AND IT WAS QUITE GOOD.

BUT SO MUCH GOES IN.

AND THEN WHAT SHE DID -- I'M

PROUD OF HER.

SHE MADE A MEATLOAF, AND

INSTEAD OF THROWING AWAY THE

STUFF, SHE PUT THAT IN THE

MEAT AS A FILLER, AND IT WAS

DELICIOUS.

ALL OF THOSE VEGETABLE HUS

HUSKS AND ALL OF THAT.

Wendy: FANTASTIC, PLUS

FIBER.

Pat: FIBER, FIBER.

IF YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT,

THERE IS A GUY ON PBS, AND

HE IS TALKING ABOUT

MICRONUTRIENTS AND NUTS AND

BERRIES.

YOU EAT SOME NUTS AND

BERRIES, AND A LITTLE BIT OF

OATMEAL, AND WHAT HAVE YOU,

AND YOU'RE NOT HUNGRY FOR

THE REST OF THE DAY.

THAT'S MY SECRET.

AND IT'S EASY.

IT'S A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN

GETTING HALF OF YOUR GUT CUT

OUT.

THAT IS NOT COOL.

I'M SORRY.

I JUST CAN'T BUY THAT.

> ALL RIGHT, IF YOU WANT

TO TELL ALL, YOU'VE GOT TO

TELL ALL.

ARE YOU OPENING UP THE

SECRETS OF YOUR DEEPER

LIFE.

Wendy: I'M GOING TO

TELL IT ALL.

ON THIS PROGRAM.

Pat: THAT'S GREAT,

WENDY.

Wendy: DON'T PULL AN

OPRAH OR A BARBARA ON ME.

UP NEXT, YOU USE 11 POUNDS

OF THIS METAL EVERY YEAR,

AND WITHOUT IT YOUR CAR

WON'T START.

SEE WHY GETTING THE LED OUT

IS TAKING ON A WHOLE NEW

MEANING.

> AND PAT PUTS ME IN THE

HOT SEAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT

MY NEW BOOK ON

RELATIONSHIPS.

THAT'S COMING UP LATER.

Pat: WELL, YOU USE IT

EVERY DAY.

IT'S AN ESSENTIAL PART OF

YOUR LIFE.

YOU NEVER EVEN THINK ABOUT

IT.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, A LOT

OF PAINT HAS GOT IT IN IT,

AND IT HAS BEEN VERY

DETRIMENTAL TO YOUNG

CHILDREN.

IT IS CALLED LED.

BUT NOW AMERICA IS LOSING

ITS ONLY REMAINING PRIMARY

LED SMELTER.

WHY?

THE GOVERNMENT, THE E.P.A.,

THOSE SOCIALISTS IN

WASHINGTON DON'T LIKE IT,

AND CAITLIN BURKE HAS THIS

REPORT.

Reporter: MOST PEOPLE

THINK OF LED AS A TOXIC

METAL.

TOO MUCH EXPOSURE IN THE

AIR, WATER OR FOOD CAN BE

EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

THE E.P.A. HIGHLIGHTED SOME

OF THE HEALTH RISKS IN A

STATEMENT TO CBN, SAYING,

QUOTE,"INGESTION OF LED AT

HIGH LEVELS CAN CAUSE

CONVULSIONS, COMA, AND EVEN

DEATH.

LOWER LEVELS CAN CAUSE

REVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS ON

THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM,

KIDNEY, AND BLOOD CELLS.

EVEN VERY LOW LEVELS OF LED

IN CHILDREN CAN RESULT IN

PERMANENT DAMAGE IN THE

BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM,

SLOWED GROWTH AND A

ANEMIA."

BUT LED IS ALSO ESSENTIAL IN

SOME OF THE PRODUCTS WE USE

EVERY DAY.

IT IS MOST COMMONLY USED IN

BATTERIES, LIKE THIS ONE.

WITHOUT IT, YOUR CAR

WOULDN'T START.

LED APRONS SHIELD PATIENTS

FROM X-RAYS, AND IT IS USED

IN AMMUNITION, AND ALSO

PROVIDES A SAFETY BARRIER

AROUND NUCLEAR REACTORS.

WHETHER YOU KNOW IT OR NOT,

YOU USE 11 POUNDS OF LED

EVERY YEAR.

BUT AS OF THIS YEAR, THERE

WILL BE FAR LESS LED

AVAILABLE TO MEET A GROWING

DEMAND BECAUSE OF TIGHTER

E.P.A. REGULATIONS.

THEY ESSENTIALLY DROPPED

THE AMBIENT AIR STANDARDS

FOR LED BY 10-FOLD.

Reporter: IN ORDER TO

MEET THOSE NEW STANDARDS,

COMPANIES EITHER SPENT

MILLIONS ON UPGRADES OR SHUT

DOWN.

DORUN WAS WEREN' ONE OF

THOSE COMPANIES.

IT PUT $25 MILLION INTO

ENVIRONMENTAL IM

PRIEWSSMENTS IMPROVEMENTS,

THIS SMELTER THAT COULD TAKE

LED FROM THE GROUND AND

PROCESS IT.

BUT THAT WASN'T ENOUGH.

SO ON DECEMBER 31ST, THE

SMELTER CLOSED ITS DOORS.

MEANING THE U.S. COULD NO

LONGER TURN ORE INTO 99% 9%

PURE LED, AND NOW ONLY

SECONDARY OR RECYCLED LED

WILL BE AVAILABLE.

IN OPERATION FOR 120 YEARS,

THE HERCULIAN SMELTER

PROVIDED 90% OF THE LED IN

THE U.S.

NOW ALL LED WILL HAVE TO

COME FROM FOREIGN SOURCES.

AS A COMPANY, WE WILL

STILL PROVIDE LED

CONCENTRATE THAT CAN BE

TURNED INTO PRIMARY LED.

HOWEVER, THAT LED

CONCENTRATE WILL BE SENT TO

OTHER COUNTRIES, MOSTLY IN

EUROPE AND ASIA.

Reporter: CHINA IS

EXPECTED TO BE WHERE MUCH OF

THAT LED CONCENTRATE ENDS

UP.

BUT DORUN SAYS ONCE IT

LEAVES THE U.S., IT IS

UNLIKELY WE'LL BE GETTING IT

BACK BECAUSE CHINA WILL HAVE

ITS OWN USES FOR IT.

WE ALL KNOW THAT MOST OF

THE RAW MATERIALS THAT GO

INTO CHINA DON'T RETURN IN

THIS FORMAT.

THEY'RE EITHER USED BY THE

COUNTRY ITSELF TO DEVELOP

THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE OR

TURNED INTO FINISHED GOODS.

Reporter: THE FOLKS AT

DORUN HAVE PURSUED A CLEANER

ALTERNATIVE.

IT IS A PROCESS THAT

VIRTUALLY ELIMINATES ALL OF

THE EMISSIONS.

Reporter: BUT THE

E.P.A.'s CHANGING

REGULATORY ENVIRONMENT MADE

THAT TECHNOLOGY SIMPLY TOO

EXPENSIVE.

DORUN SAYS MORE

COMMUNICATION FROM THE

E.P.A. COULD HAVE MADE ALL

OF THE DIFFERENCE.

HAVING SOME INSIGHT INTO

THE DIRECTION THE E.P.A. WAS

TAKING, IN THIS EXAMPLE, THE

AMBIENT AIR STANDARDS, AND

PARTNERING WITH THE E.P.A.

IN SETTING THOSE THINGS,

WOULD HAVE BEEN A MUCH

BETTER CONDITION AND OUTCOME

FOR COMPANIES IN OUR

INDUSTRY TO MAINTAIN THE

VIABILITY OF OUR

BUSINESSES.

Reporter: LED MARKET

ANALYST NEIL HAWK SAYS ONLY

TIME WILL TELL IF THE GAP

LEFT BY THE CLOSURE OF THE

HERCULIAN SMELTER CAN BE

FILLED.

WHERE IS THE SUPPLY GOING

TO COME FROM?

I THINK GLOBALLY THE LED

MARKET IS TIGHTENING AND WE

CERTAINLY HAVE THE MARKET

MOVING INTO AN OVERALL

SUPPLY-DEMAND DEFICIT OVER

THE NEXT FIVE YEARS OR SO.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS, HERCULIAN,

MISSOURI.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I DON'T WANT

DIRTY AIR.

I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO

BREATHE TOXIC FUMES.

I DON'T WANT WATER THAT IS

POLLUTED AND HAS ALL KINDS

OF NOXIOUS CHEMICALS IN

THEM.

I THINK THE ENVIRONMENTAL

AGENCY -- THE PURPOSE OF IT

WAS GOOD.

BUT I DO THINK IT HAS GONE

OUT OF CONTROL.

I HAVE SEEN IT FIRSTHAND ON

WHAT IS CALLED "NEW SOURCE

REVIEW."

IF A POWER PLANT PUTS IN A

CERTAIN NUMBER OF SCRUBBERS

OR SOMETHING, A LITTLE MORE

DRAMATIC IN WHAT THEY'VE

BEEN DOING, THE E.P.A. WILL

SAY, WELL, NOW YOU'VE GOT A

NEW PROCESS GOING, AND WE

DEMAND NEW SOURCE REVIEW.

WHICH MEANS YOU'VE GOT TO

GET ALL OF THE EXPENSIVE

STUDIES TO PROVE THAT YOU

AREN'T POLLUTING THE

ENVIRONMENT.

AND THOSE THINGS CAN COST IN

THE TENS OF MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS, AND THEREFORE SOME

COMPANIES WHO TRY TO DO

SOMETHING GOOD ARE FORCED

OUT OF BUSINESS BECAUSE OF

THESE RULES.

AND IT'S LIKE THE E.P.A.

DOESN'T CARE.

THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE

JOBS THAT ARE LOST.

THEY DON'T CARE SO MUCH

ABOUT THE ECONOMIC IMPACT.

WHAT THEY'RE CONCERNED ABOUT

IS A SOCIALIST AGENDA.

THEY CALL IT A PROGRESSIVE

AGENDA, THAT PLEASES THE

ENVIRONMENTALISTS, THE

EXTREME ENVIRONMENTALISTS,

AND DOES NOT TAKE INTO

EFFECT THE CONSEQUENCES OF

THEIR ACTIONS.

IT IS A DANGEROUS THING.

THEY HAVE EXCEEDED,

REPEATEDLY, THE MANDATE

GIVEN THEM BY THE CONGRESS.

THEY WRITE THEIR OWN RULES.

THEY HAVE GONE AFTER THE

COAL INDUSTRY.

THEY'RE TRYING TO SHUT IT

DOWN.

THEY'RE GOING AFTER THESE

THINGS BLOW STUFF INTO THE

ENVIRONMENT.

THEY WANT -- THEY HAVE MADE

IT TOUGH FOR OIL

REFINERIES.

WE HAVEN'T HAD A NEW OIL

REFINERY COME ON STREAM

SINCE JIMMY CARTER.

THAT ISN'T ACCIDENTAL.

IT MAKES US DEPENDENT ON

FOREIGN SOURCES BECAUSE THE

E.P.A. IS SO OUT OF

CONTROL.

IT IS TIME CONGRESS DID

SOMETHING TO REWRITE THE

REGULATIONS, MAKE IT CLEAR

WHAT THEY CAN AND CANNOT

DO.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE

WANT, CLEAN AIR, WE WANT

CLEAN WATER.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

WE DON'T WANT DEAD FISH OUT

IN THE GREAT LAKES.

WE WANT THOSE WATER BODIES

CLEANED UP.

WE WANT ALL OF THAT.

THAT'S GOOD.

BUT WHAT IS BAD IS WE ALSO

WANT THE INDUSTRY THAT KEEPS

OUR MACHINERY GOING AND

GIVES JOBS TO THOUSANDS OF

WORKERS.

Wendy: YEAH.

Pat: LOOK AT THAT

KEYSTONE X.L. PIPELINE, FOR

EXAMPLE.

THAT WOULD EMPLOY 20,000

WORKERS AND BRING MILLIONS

OF DOLLARS INTO THE ECONOMY,

AND EXTREME

ENVIRONMENTALISTS ARE SAYING

NO, NO, NO.

Wendy: THERE NEEDS TO

BE A BALANCE, JUST LIKE YOU

SAID.

Pat: THOSE GUYS ARE NOT

BALANCED AT ALL.

Wendy: UH-UH.

THANKS, PAT.

COMING UP, IT IS LIKE A

SCENE FROM THE CABLE SERIES

"BREAKING BAD," BUT THIS IS

REAL LIFE.

I'M IN A SMALL.

Tracey: TRAILER AND I'M

COOKING METHAMPHETAMINE, AND

THE TRAILER WENT UP IN

FLAMES AND I WAS

SURROUNDED.

Wendy: WATCH HOW THIS

MAN GOES DOWN IN FLAMES,

ONLY TO RISE AGAIN.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

YOU PROBABLY SAW THE

BLOCKBUSTER TV SERIES CALLED

"BREAKING BAD."

IT WAS ABOUT A CHEMISTRY

ATTAC TEACHER WHO WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH INOPERABLE

CANCER, AND HE TURNS TO A

LIFE OF CRIME SELLING

METHAMPHETAMINE TO SECURE

HIS FAMILY'S FUTURE.

BUT AL SACRIFICED HIS FAMILY

AND EVERYTHING THEY OWNED IN

PURSUIT OF THE DRUG.

UNTIL THE NIGHT THE DRUG

JUMPED OUT AND BIT HIM

HARD.

I'M IN A SMALL TRAILER

COOKING METHAMPHETAMINES,

THE JUICE BUILT UP AND A

SPARK WENT OFF THE HEAT

LAMP.

Reporter: AS A YOUNG

MAN, RODNEY WILLIAMS

BELIEVED GOD HAD A PLAN FOR

HIS LIFE, BUT HE WASN'T SURE

HE COULD CARRY IT OUT, OR

EVEN IF HE WANTED TO.

I JUST FELT LIKE I WAS

STRONG ENOUGH TO WIN THE

BATTLE, AND I KIND OF QUIT

ON GOD.

I SAID, I'LL BE BACK LATER.

I'M GOING TO SOW MY OATS AND

GO OUT AND SEE THE WORLD.

WHEN I'M STRONG ENOUGH, I'LL

COME BACK.

Reporter: BY THE TIME

RODNEY REACHED HIGH SCHOOL,

HE WAS AN ALCOHOLIC AND A

DRUG ADDICT, CHASING HIS

NEXT HIGH.

WE BEGAN BREAKING INTO

HOMES AND GETTING ALCOHOL

AND GETTING DRUNK.

I WAS EXPERIMENTING, TRYING

ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT

THINGS I THOUGHT WOULD

SATISFY ME, AND MAKE ME

HAPPY.

Reporter: RODNEY GOT A

JOB AND EVENTUALLY MARRIED.

BUT EVEN THE BIRTH OF HIS

SON DIDN'T CHANGE HIS

FOCUS.

MY MIND NEEDED TO BE

GOING TOWARDS MY KID AND THE

FAMILY, AND INSTEAD I WAS

SPENDING MONEY ON MY

ADDICTION.

IT WAS ALL ABOUT ME GETTING

HIGH, TAKING CARE OF MY GOD,

WHICH WAS THE ALCOHOL, THE

DRUGS, AND THE GAMBLING.

IT WAS ALL ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: A SHORT TIME

LATER RODNEY'S WIFE DIVORCED

HIM.

AND HE TRIED TO NUMB THE

PAIN HE FELT THE ONLY WAY HE

KNEW HOW.

AS LONG AS I STAY HIGH,

IT WILL BE OKAY.

YOU WILL DO WHATEVER IT

TAKES TO STAY IN THIS WORLD

BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO GO

OVER HERE AND DEAL WITH

LIFE.

THE INITIAL HIGH IS

AWESOME.

BUT AS YOU CONTINUE TO TRY

AND DO IT, IT BEGINS TO

DIMINISH, AND BEFORE YOU

KNOW IT, YOU'RE IN THIS

BONDAGE, WHERE YOU'RE DOING

IT JUST TO FUNCTION.

Reporter: RODNEY WAS

WITH A FRIEND ONE NIGHT WHEN

HE WAS INTRODUCED TO METH.

WE'RE JUST RIDING AROUND

AND SNORTING WHAT WE THOUGHT

WAS COCAINE, WHICH WAS

METHAMPHETAMINES.

AFTER SNORTING ABOUT A

BOTTLE, MY HEART BEGAN TO

RUSH.

AND I COULD JUST FEEL THE

BLOOD JUST PUMPING THROUGH

YOUR VEINS.

Reporter: HIS FIRST

EXPERIENCE WITH METH NEARLY

KILLED HIM.

THE INCIDENT WAS ONE OF OVER

A DOZEN DRUG OVER DOSES.

EVENTUALLY RODNEY DECIDED HE

NEEDED HELP AND WENT THROUGH

REHAB, BUT IT DIDN'T WORK.

HE EVEN TRIED GOING BACK TO

CHURCH.

I EVEN WALKED UP AND

PRAYED A PRAYER OF

REPENTANCE, BUT IN REALITY,

THERE WAS NO HEART CHANGE.

I REALLY WAS NOT PREPARED TO

GIVE UP THE LIFESTYLE THAT

WAS LIVING.

Reporter: RODNEY'S

ADDICTION SOON CONSUMED

EVERYTHING HE HAD LEFT.

I HAD A GOOD GOVERNMENT

JOB, AND ON THE WAY HOME ONE

DAY, I WAS, LIKE, I'M NOT

GOING BACK THERE.

I WANTED TO COOK THE

METHAMPHETAMINES AND SELL

THEM.

I LOST MY HOME.

I WAS FINDING DIFFERENT

PLACES TO GO AND COOK IT.

MY LAST NIGHT AS A DRUG

ADDICT I'M HIGH; I'VE BEEN

UP FOR DAYS.

I'M IN A SMALL TRAILER.

I'M PARANOID.

I'VE GOT THE DOORS BOLTED

DOWN IN THE TRAILER.

I'M COOKING

METHAMPHETAMINES, THE FUMES

BUILT UP, AND A SPARK WENT

OFF THE HEAT LAMP.

THE TRAILER IGNITED AND THE

FLAMES -- IT WAS LIKE I WAS

SURROUNDED.

I COULDN'T GET OUT BECAUSE

THE DOOR WAS LOCKED.

I BEGAN UNLOCKING THE DOORS,

AND I RUN OUTSIDE ON FIRE.

AND NOW I'M STANDING HERE

2:00 IN THE MORNING, ALL

BURNED UP.

I'M HOMELESS.

I'VE LOST EVERYTHING I'VE

GOT.

MY FAMILY DOES NOT LIKE ME

BECAUSE I'VE BURNED THEM SO

MANY TIMES.

Reporter: RODNEY

STUMBLED TO A NEIGHBORING

HOUSE FOR HELP.

AS THE PEOPLE SPED HIM TO

THE HOSPITAL, HE BEGAN TO

THINK ABOUT HIS LIFE.

I WAS JUST MISERABLE.

DEATH WOULD HAVE BEEN A

VICTORY AT THAT TIME.

I FELT LIKE JUST LET ME

DIE.

IT WAS LIKE THE LIGHT TURNED

ON.

I REMEMBERED THE LORD THAT

HAD COMFORTED ME AS A CHILD,

AND I TURNED TO HIM AND I

CRIED OUT TO GOD.

I CRIED OUT TO JESUS.

I CRIED OUT HE COULD TAKE MY

EAR, WHATEVER IS LEFT.

I MADE AN UNCONDITIONAL

SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST ON THE WAY TO THE

HOSPITAL.

Reporter: RODNEY WAS IN

THE HOSPITAL FOR WEEKS AND

UNDERWENT SKIN GRAPHS FOR

SECOND AND THIRD-DEGREE

BURNS.

WHEN HE WAS RELEASED, HE

WENT BACK TO REHAB, BUT THIS

TIME THINGS WERE DIFFERENT.

I'M READING THE BIBLE AND

IT IS MAKING SENSE.

GOD IS SHOWING ME STUFF IN

THE HOLY WORD.

HE IS TRANSFORMING ME,

CHANGING ME, RENEWING MY

MIND AND SETTING ME FREE.

Reporter: HIS RECOVERY

WAS NOT ALWAYS EASY, BUT

RODNEY SAYS GOD HELPED HIM

GET THROUGH IT.

THROUGH A LOF LOT OF MY

WEAK POINTS, GOD HAS BEEN

THERE TO CARRY ME THROUGH.

I'M SO THANKFUL HE IS GOD

AND HE DOES THAT.

Reporter: RODNEY WENT

ON TO SEMINARY AND HAS BEEN

A PASTOR SINCE 2006.

HE IS NOW REMARRIED AND HAS

A FAMILY.

I'VE GOT A GREAT LIFE.

GOD HAS PROVEN FAITHFUL.

WHEN I DID GIVE IT ALL TO

HIM, IT IS A LOT DIFFERENT

THAN I THOUGHT IT WAS.

THE THINGS UARY WORRIE I

WAS WORRIED ABOUT, THAT I

WOULD BE MISERABLE, GOD HAS

PROVEN ME WRONG.

TODAY I AM HAPPY.

I'VE GOT JOY.

IT IS NOT WHAT I THOUGHT IT

WAS GOING TO BE.

IT IS GREAT.

Reporter: RODNEY

ENCOURAGES OTHERS TO TRUST

GOD WITH THEIR LIFE.

A LOT OF TIMES I WANTED

TO MAKE DEALS WITH GOD, BUT

WHEN YOU'RE READY TO

SURRENDER, JUST GIVE HIM

YOUR LIFE.

GOD CAN TAKE IT AND GIVE YOU

A VICTORY THAT YOU CAN NEVER

IMAGINE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

BIBLE SAYS THERE IS PLEASURE

IN SIN FOR A SEASON.

YOU KNOW?

SIN IS KIND OF FUN.

I MEAN, YOU GO TO VEGAS, YOU

GAMBLE, YOU ARE TAKING DRUGS

SOME PLACE, AND SOMEBODY HAS

GOT YOU SOME COCAINE OR SOME

MARIJUANA OR METH OR

WHATEVER YOU TAKE.

AND THERE IS A TIME YOU GET

A HIGH AND YOU'RE ALL KEYED

UP, AND EVERYTHING JUST

SEEMS WONDERFUL.

BUT THEN THE BOTTOM BEGINS

TO FALL OUT BECAUSE THE

DEVIL STARTS ASKING FOR HIS

PAYMENT, HIS DUE.

HE GAVE YOU SOME FUN, AND

NOW HE IS GOING TO ASK YOU

TO PAY THE BILL.

AND THE BILL IS YOU.

YOU'VE GIVEN YOUR SOUL TO

THE DEVIL, AND NOW HE OWNS

YOU.

AND HE IS GOING TO MAKE YOU

DANCE HIS TUNE BECAUSE HE

HAS GOT YOU AS HIS SLAVE.

AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO

RODNEY, AND IT HAS HAPPENED

TO MANY OTHERS.

YOU BECOME A SLAVE TO THE

ADDICTION THAT YOU THOUGHT

IT WAS GIVING YOU SUCH A

NICE HIGH, SUCH A WONDERFUL

TIME.

AND SOME OF YOU WHO ARE

WATCHING ME RIGHT NOW, YOU

ARE A SLAVE TO ALCOHOL.

YOU'RE A SLAVE TO NICOTINE,

TO MARIJUANA, COCAINE,

L.S.D. -- WHATEVER YOUR

THING IS -- YOU'RE A SLAVE

TO SEX, TO PORN, WHATEVER.

THE DEVIL IS GOING TO SAY, I

WANT MY SHEAR NOW.

SHARE NOW.

YOU BELONG TO ME.

AND THE WAGES OF SIN IS

DEATH.

THERE IS ONLY ONE DAY DOWN,

AND THAT IS DEATH.

SO RODNEY ALMOST DIED.

HE ALMOST DIED BECAUSE THE

DEVIL SAID I WANT TO COLLECT

AND I WANT YOUR LIFE.

NOW, WHO DO YOU WANT TO HAVE

YOUR LIFE?

DO YOU WANT IT TO BELONG TO

GOD?

OR DO YOU WANT THE DEVIL TO

HAVE IT?

I WANT TO TELL YOU, FOLKS,

HELL IS AWFUL.

I'VE NEVER BEEN THERE.

I JUST KNOW WHAT I'VE READ,

THE TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE

WHO HAVE ACTUALLY

EXPERIENCED IT, BUT IT IS

AWFUL.

IT IS GHASTLY.

AND THE THING ABOUT HELL IS,

FOLKS, I WANT YOU TO

REMEMBER, IT NEVER STOPS.

THERE ARE TIMES THAT YOU'RE

SO EXHAUSTED YOU DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO, AND SO YOU CAN

GO TO SLEEP.

YOU CAN SLEEP AND YOU CAN

WAKE UP REFRESHED.

AND THERE ARE TIMES YOU CAN

BE TERRIBLY HUNGRY, AND THEN

YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO EAT

AND YOU FEEL OKAY.

THERE ARE TIMES YOU ARE VERY

THIRSTY AND YOU GET A GLASS

OF WATER AND YOU FEEL

BETTER.

WITH THIS THERE IS NO END.

YOU CAN'T STOP THE PAIN.

YOU CAN'T STOP THE TORMENT.

AND YOU CAN'T DIE.

IT GOES ON FOREVER.

AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER

AND EVER AND EVER.

NO END.

NO, WHAT DO YOU WANT?

DO YOU WANT AN ETERNITY OF

TORMENT?

OR DO YOU WANT HEAVEN WITH

THE HEAVENLY FATHER AND JOY

UNSPEAKABLE?

GOD OFFERS YOU SOMETHING

WONDERFUL.

I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND WHATEVER IT IS THAT IS

GIVING YOU THE HIGH,

WHATEVER IT IS, WHETHER IT

IS AN ILLICIT AFFAIR,

WHETHER IT IS PORNOGRAPHY,

DRUGS, ALCOHOL, BOOZE --

WHATEVER YOU'RE INTO, GOD

WILL SET YOU FREE.

BUT YOU HAVE TO ASK HIM.

NOW, WOULD YOU PLEASE PRAY

WITH ME.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE LORD

OF CREATION.

HE WHO CAUSES EVERYTHING TO

BE, THE AUTHOR OF ALL LIFE.

IN HIM IS LIFE, AND THE LIFE

WITH THE LIGHT OF MEN.

DO YOU WANT THAT LIFE?

YES, YOU DO.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR

HEAD.

DON'T GO ANYWHERE.

RIGHT THIS MINUTE STOP,

RIGHT NOW, LISTEN TO ME.

BOW YOUR HEAD, AND PRAY

THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

JESUS.

JESUS, I DON'T WANT TO GO TO

HELL.

JESUS, I DON'T WANT AN

ETERNITY OF TORMENT.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU DIED TO

TAKE AWAY MY SIN.

AND SO, LORD, RIGHT NOW I

COME TO YOU AND I CONFESS MY

SIN, AND I ASK YOU TO TAKE

IT AWAY.

I BELIEVE THAT YOU DIED FOR

ME.

AND AT THIS MOMENT I TAKE

YOU AS MY SAVIOR.

I WANT TO BE MADE A NEW

CREATURE.

I WANT TO BE BORN AGAIN.

COME INTO MY LIFE, LORD, AND

FROM THIS MOMENT ON I'M

YOURS.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE

MINE.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME

JUST THEN, I WANT YOU TO DO

SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO CONFESS IT.

I WANT TO GET ESTABLISHED IN

YOUR LIFE WHAT YOU JUST

DID.

I HAVE SOMETHING I WANT YOU

TO GIVE YOU.

WE'VE BEEN OFFERING THIS FOR

A LONG TIME.

IT HAS ALL OF THE ESSENTIALS

YOU NEED TO KNOW.

YOU'VE JUST MADE A

DECISION.

WHAT ABOUT BEING BORN

AGAIN?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE AN

EXCHANGED LIFE.

I'M GOING TO GIVE THIS TO

YOU FREE.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, I

PRAYED WITH PAT AND I GAVE

MY HEART TO THE LORD.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

THERE IS NO FINANCIAL

OBLIGATION WHATSOEVER.

JUST SAY, I'M FREE.

I'M FREE.

I'M NOT GOING TO HELL.

I'M GOING TO BELONG TO

JESUS.

1-800.

1-800-759-0700.

I WANT YOU TO CALL QUICKLY.

THE PEOPLE ARE ON THE

PHONES.

IF FOR ANY REASON THEY'RE

BUSY, THEY'LL BE OPEN

QUICKLY.

WE'VE GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE

HERE AND IN NASHVILLE.

YOU CALL, WHEREVER YOU ARE,

1-800-759-0700.

AND SAY, LOOK, I WANT THAT

BOOKLET, "A NEW DAY," AND I

WANT TO TELL YOU I'M FREE.

WENDY?

Wendy: AMEN.

THANKS, PAT.

> STILL AHEAD, WE'LL BRING

IT ON WITH YOUR E-MAIL.

JAN SAYS, "I HAVE RECENTLY

DISCOVERED THAT MY PASTOR

AND HIS WIFE WATCH A SHOW ON

CABLE THAT CONTAINS NUDITY.

EVEN SECULAR CRITICS HAVE

CALLED IT PORNOGRAPHIC.

I'VE BEEN UNABLE TO RETURN

TO THEIR BIBLE STUDY SINCE

HEARING THIS.

AM I OVERREACTING?"

PLUS, THE TABLES TURN, WHEN

PAT GETS TO QUESTION ME

ABOUT MY PAST LOVE LIFE, SO

STAY TUNED FOR THAT.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

USING BOMBS AND HEAVY GUNS,

ISLAMIC MILITANTS KILLED AT

LEAST 99 PEOPLE IN NORTHEAST

NIGERIA.

THEY STORMED A ROMAN

CATHOLIC CHURCH DURING

SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE,

SPRAYING THE CONGREGATION

WITH BULLETS.

AND IT KILLED DOZENS.

AND HELD OTHERS HOSTAGE

DURING A FIVE-HOUR SIEGE.

THEY ALSO BURNED DOWN

HUNDREDS OF HOMES.

OFFICIALS SAY IT IS ONE OF

THE HIGHEST DEATH TOLLS IN

ATTACKS BY ISLAMICS.

THE CHRISTIAN SINGER

CARMEN IS FACING A NEW

HEALTH CRISIS.

HE HAS BEEN BATTLING CANCER

FOR NEARLY A YEAR.

HE SAYS A NEW INFECTION

COULD BE THREATENING HIS

LIFE, AND SAYING FOR THE

FIRST TIME HE IS REALLY

WORRIED.

SHARE HOW HIS MUSIC HAS

IMPACTED YOUR LIFE, YOU CAN

STAY WITH US, PAT AND WENDY

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I'M HOLDING IN MY HAND A

VERY SPECIAL BOOK.

IT'S A BOOK THAT EVERY YOUNG

GIRL SHOULD HAVE.

TEENAGERS SHOULD HAVE IT,

COLLEGE STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE

IT, AND YOUNG, SINGLE WOMEN

SHOULD HAVE IT.

IT IS CALLED "YOU ARE A

PRIZE TO BE WON," WRITTEN BY

NONE OTHER THAN THE LOVELY

WENDY GRIFFITH.

WHO HAS HAD ALL KINDS OF

EXPERIENCE, AND NOW SHE IS

GOING TO TELL THEM.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO TELL

US?

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO

OPEN -- THE SECRETS TO YOUR

HOPECHEST?

Wendy: AS YOU KNOW, I

WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP THE

ENTIRE YEAR OF 2011 AND IT

ENDED AND BROKE MY HEART AND

IT WAS THE HARDEST THING I

EVER WENT THROUGH.

THE HOLY SPIRIT TOLD ME TO

WRITE ABOUT MY TEST.

HE CALLED IT A TEST, WHICH I

THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING.

Pat: YOU MADE A BIG

DEAL ABOUT THIS STUFF ABOUT

LOVE.

Wendy: BIG DEAL?

Pat: YOU REALLY MADE A

BIG DEAL OF IT?

Wendy: I WANTED THE

FAIRY TALE.

I WAS IN MY 40s, FINALLY,

AND I THOUGHT MY PRINCE HAD

COME.

I WANTED THE RING, I WANTED

THE WEDDING, I WANTED THE

HONEYMOON, PAT.

Pat: YOU FANTASIZED THE

WHOLE COTTON-PICKING THING.

IT WAS WAY OVERBLOWN.

Wendy: BUT A LOT OF US

DO THAT.

I WAS, IN MY DEFENSE, IT

FELT VERY, VERY REAL.

Pat: KEEP GOING.

Wendy: WELL, WE DATED

FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR.

DURING SIX MONTHS INTO THE

RELATIONSHIP, EVERY GIRL

WANTS TO HEAR THOSE THREE

WORDS, "I LOVE YOU."

AND ONE NIGHT HE FINALLY

SAID THEM, BUT HE SAID, I

LOVE YOU BUT I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU'RE THE ONE.

AND IT WAS LIKE GETTING

KISSED AND SLAPPED REALLY

HARD AT THE SAME TIME.

BECAUSE YOU WANTED TO HEAR

THOSE WORDS SO DESPERATELY,

AND YOU'RE, LIKE, WHY DON'T

I FEEL GOOD.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU'RE THE ONE?

WHAT A JERK.

Wendy: AT THE TIME, I

WAS SO CONFUSED BECAUSE I

WAS WAITING SO LONG TO HEAR

THAT, AND MAYBE HE NEEDED

MORE TIME.

BASICALLY WHEN A GUY SAYS,

BUT I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE

THE ONE, HE'S SAYING I LIKE

YOU A LOT, BUT I'M KEEPING

MY OPTIONS OPEN IN CASE

SOMETHING BETTER COMES

ALONG.

Pat: LET'S JUST BE

FRIENDS AND CUDDLE.

Wendy: IF I COULD JUST

DO THAT MOMENT OVER, I WOULD

SAY YOU CAN TAKE YOUR "I

LOVE YOU BUT," AND GO BACK

TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM.

EVERY WOMAN IS WORTH "I LOVE

YOU," PERIOD.

IF A GUY IS LEAVING A

LOOPHOLE, GOD HAS A BETTER

PLAN AND A BETTER MAN.

Pat: YOU'RE A PRIZE TO

BE WON.

AND YOU NEEDED SOME

REASSURANCE, DIDN'T YOU?

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY.

I DIDN'T -- I HAD PREACHED

TO OTHER WOMEN YOU WERE A

PRIZE TO BE WON BECAUSE THAT

WAS SOMETHING THE HOLY

SPIRIT SPOKE TO ME YEARS

AGO.

WHEN I WAS ON ASSIGNMENT IN

FLORIDA, A BIG NATIONAL

STORY, AND I ASKED A GUY TO

GO OUT TO DINNER WITH ME

BECAUSE WE WERE HANGING OUT

AND LAUGHING ALL DAY.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, NO, I'VE

GOT TO GO TO THE GYM.

AND IT JUST HURT.

I WAS, LIKE, GOD, WHY DID I

DO THAT?

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID,

YOU ARE A PRIZE TO BE WON.

I WAS PREACHING THAT TO

OTHER WOMEN.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, IT WAS UP

HERE, BUT IT WASN'T HERE.

THAT TAKES A WHILE.

THAT'S A PROCESS, TO LEARN

OUR VALUE.

WHEN YOU KNOW YOUR VALUE, IT

IS A GAME CHANGER.

IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.

Pat: I AM TESTIMONY

THAT YOU ARE A PRIZE.

AND WE'RE DELIGHTED THAT YOU

ARE SITTING WHERE YOU ARE.

I HOPE YOU'RE ENJOYING IT.

Wendy: I AM.

AND I WROTE AN INTERESTING

CHAPTER THAT IS GETTING A

LOT OF ATTENTION CALLED "THE

DANGERS OF RECREATIONAL

KISSING."

Pat: WHAT IS THAT?

IS THAT LIKE RECREATIONAL

SEX?

Wendy: NO, IT IS JUST

KISSING.

BUT KISSING IS SO POWERFUL.

IT IS VERY COUNTER-CULTURAL

TO TALK ABOUT THIS BECAUSE

EVERYBODY IS, LIKE, KISSING

IS FINE.

AND WE ALL LOVE KISSING.

BUT I MAKE THE CASE, PAT,

THAT YOU CAN FALL IN LOVE

WITH THE WRONG GUY BASED ON

THE FACT HE IS A GREAT

KISSER.

KISSING IS LIKE A DRUG.

YOU GET THESE FEEL GOOD

CHEMICALS IN THE BRAIN.

Pat: YOU DO.

Wendy: AND IT KEEPS YOU

GOING BACK FOR MORE.

I MAKE THE CASE, WAIT AS

LONG AS YOU CAN TO HAVE THAT

FIRST KISS BECAUSE KISSING

IS VERY POWERFUL.

BUT IT IS A FUN CHAPTER.

Pat: MY GOODNESS.

IS THERE ANYTHING HERE MORE

INTIMATE, OR IS THAT IT?

Wendy: WELL, ONE THING

THAT THE LORD SPOKE TO ME,

WE'RE CHRISTIANS, BOTH IN

OUR 40s, TRYING TO LIVE

GOD'S WAY, NOT HAVING SEX.

AND WE'RE KISSING, AND I WAS

FEELING VULNERABLE.

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID,

WENDY, YOU'RE FEELING

VULNERABLE BECAUSE YOU'RE

GIVING YOURSELF AWAY.

AND I'M LIKE, GOD, WE'RE NOT

HAVING SEX, WE'RE JUST

KISSING.

BUT THAT'S WHAT THE HOLY

SPIRIT WAS SAYING.

AND HE SAID TO ME SOMETHING

VERY INTERESTING, AND HE

SAID, PURITY IS SEXY.

I'M, LIKE, WOW, WHAT A

CONCEPT.

PEOPLE WHO GO ON THEIR

HONEYMOONS HAVE TO HAVE ALL

OF THESE EXTRACURRICULAR

ACTIVITIES, AND GOING

SNORKLING AND SAILING AND

ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

I'M SNORKELS AND SAILED ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT MY

HONEYMOON IS GOING TO BE

ABOUT.

DO YOU GET MY DRIFT?

Pat: MY MIND JUST TAKES

ME TO ANOTHER WORLD.

GAUZY CURTAINS AND CANDLE

LIGHT AND CHAMPAGNE.

Wendy: WHAT CAN BE

SEXIER THAN ON YOUR WEDDING

NIGHT THAN SAYING, BABY, I

WAITED FOR YOU.

IT IS NOT SEXY TO GIVE IT

ALL AWAY.

I ENCOURAGE WOMEN TO SAVE

WHAT YOU CAN.

SAVE IT.

AND EVEN A KISS CAN BE TOO

MUCH IF IT'S IN THE WRONG --

IF IT'S WITH THE WRONG GUY

OR IN THE WRONG SPIRIT.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, YOU NEED TO READ

THIS BOOK.

WOW!

HOW MARVELOUS.

WELL, YOU ARE TREMENDOUS.

Wendy: YOU REMEMBER HOW

UPSET I WAS BECAUSE YOU

TALKED TO ME.

Pat: OF COURSE I DO.

Wendy: HERE IS A GUY,

PAT ROBERTSON, HE HAS SAT

DOWN WITH PRESIDENTS AND

KINGS AND QUEENS, AND HE

WANTED TO HEAR ABOUT MY

HEARTBREAK.

AND I WRITE ABOUT THE ADVICE

PAT GAVE ME IN THE PRELUDE.

IT MEANT SO MUCH TO ME.

AND THE ADVICE YOU GAVE ME

WAS BASICALLY, WENDY, DON'T

THROW YOURSELF AWAY, DON'T

SETTLE.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAY TO

WOMEN WHO ARE GOING THROUGH

HEARTBREAK, HONEY, I WISH I

HAD A PILL TO GIVE YOU

BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING

MORE PAINFUL THAN

HEARTBREAK.

BUT IT TAKES ITS TIME.

GOD TOLD ME TO MOURN AND

MOVE ON.

AND I WENT TO BELIZE, AND

I THOUGHT I COULD GO ON

VACATION AND GET A TAN AND

THROW A ROCK IN THE OCEAN

AND COME BACK HEALED, BUT

THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

BUT GOD UNDERSTANDS

REJECTION.

RUN TO HIM.

HE WILL HELP YOU GET THROUGH

IT.

Pat: I THOUGHT YOU WERE

EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL AND VERY

TALENTED AND YOU SHOULDN'T

COME OUT OF THIS

RELATIONSHIP AND THROW

YOURSELF AT SOME LOSER

SOMEWHERE.

AND IT'S IN THE BOOK.

WHEW!

WHERE DO YOU GET THIS

THING?

Wendy: IF YOU ORDER IT

ON cbn.com, I WILL

AUTOGRAGH IT FOR YOU.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO AUTOGRAGH

IT FOR YOU.

YOU CAN GO TO cbn.com

TODAY, AMAZON, AND WHERE

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

Pat: WE'VE GOT A WEB

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ABOUT

HER BOOK.

JUST GO TO cbn.com AND

CLICK "IN THE GREEN ROOM."

WENDY, THIS IS FANTASTIC.

YOU OPENED YOUR HEART, AND

SOMETIMES WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR

HEART, YOU CAN BRING OTHERS

IN AND THEY'RE SHARE.

YOU'RE TERRIFIC.

I LOVE YOU.

Wendy: THANKS SO MUCH.

LOVE YOU.

NOW IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT

ON."

I'M GOING TO GET MY

CO-HOSTING BACK ON.

Pat: OKAY, LET'S GET ON

TO SERIOUS BUSINESS.

Wendy: I DID DEDICATE

MY BOOK TO MY FUTURE

HUSBAND.

I'M WAITING FOR YOU, IF

YOU'RE WATCHING.

Pat: ON INTERNATIONAL

TELEVISION, AND THE OFFERS

WILL BE COMING IN OVER THE

PHONE.

GO AHEAD.

Wendy: JAN SAYS, "I

HAVE RECENTLY DISCOVERED

THAT MY PASTOR AND HIS WIFE

WATCH A SHOW ON CABLE THAT

CONTAINS NUDITY, EVEN

SECULAR CRITICS HAVE CALLED

IT PORNOGRAPHIC.

I'VE BEEN UNABLE TO RETURN

TO THEIR BIBLE STUDIES SINCE

HEARING THIS.

AM I OVERREACTING?"

Pat: YES, I THINK YOU

ARE.

LISTEN, THE HUMAN BODY IS

NOT ESSENTIALLY NASTY.

GOD MADE US WITHOUT

CLOTHES.

AND YOU LOOK AT THAT FAMOUS

STATUE OF DAVID THAT IS

CONSIDERED ONE OF THE

MASTERPIECES OF THE

RENAISSANCE.

AND HERE IS DAVID, AND HE

DOESN'T HAVE ANY CLOTHES ON

AT ALL.

YOU'VE GOT THE VENUS DEMILLO

AND SOME OF THE OTHER.

YOU LOOK AT THE SISTINE

CHAPEL, AND ADAM HAS GOT NO

CLOTHES ON.

ADAM IS NAKED.

GOD DIDN'T MAKE US WITH

CLOTHES.

SO THE BODY IS NOT

ESSENTIALLY PORNOGRAPHIC.

AND I THINK TO MAKE IT SO IS

A MISTAKE.

IT'S WHAT'S IN YOUR MIND.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR

PASTOR IS WATCHING, WHAT

SHOW IT IS.

MAYBE IT HAS GOT SOME

REDEEMING QUALITIES, BUT I

SURE WOULDN'T TURN HIM OFF

JUST BECAUSE HE IS WATCHING

A FEW CLIPS OF NUDITY ON

TV.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHOW

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

SOME OF THEM ARE REAL

NASTY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

Wendy: IT DEPENDS ON

HOW PORNOGRAPHIC IT IS.

Pat: EXACTLY.

JUST THE HUMAN FORM, PER SE,

IN NECESSARILY DIRTY.

IT IS WHAT OUR MINDS MAKE

IT.

Wendy: DIANE

WRITES, "MY SON HEARD ME

TALKING IN MY SLEEP AND HE

SAYS I WAS SAYING EVIL

THINGS.

HE IS CONVINCED I HAVE AN

EVIL SPIRIT.

I AM A CHILD OF GOD, AND

THIS IS BREAKING MY HEART.

DO YOU HAVE ANY

SUGGESTIONS?"

Pat: KEEP YOUR SON OUT

OF YOUR BEDROOM.

THERE IS AN UNCONSCIOUS THAT

GOES ON IN THERE, AND THERE

IS STUFF WE DON'T KNOW

ABOUT.

THERE IS A COLLECTION OF ALL

OF THE THINGS YOU HAVE HEARD

OR READ.

IF YOU READ MOST OF THE

NOVELS, THEY'RE FILLED WITH

A LOT OF NASTY WORDS.

IF YOU'RE ASSOCIATING WITH

PEOPLE IN THE MARKETPLACE,

YOU KNOW, IT'S FILLED WITH

NASTY WORDS.

AND THESE THINGS GET INTO

YOUR SUBCONSCIENCE, AND SO

YOU'RE IN A UNCONSCIOUS

MODE.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

WE LEAVEWITH THE POWER

MINUTE FROM PROVERBS 3:

"KEEP MY COMMANDS IN YOUR

HEART FOR THEY WILL PROLONG

YOUR LIFE MANY YEARS AND

BRING YOU PROSPERITY."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

TOMORROW WE HAVE A FORMER

ARMANI MODEL WHO REVEALS THE

BEAUTIFUL LIES BEHIND THE

WORLD OF HIGH FASHION.

MAN, WE JUST HAVE ALL KINDS

OF THINGS ON THIS PROGRAM

THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

A DAY OF.

WE'LL SEE YOU LATER.

BYE-BYE.
