The 700 Club - Feb 4, 2014

Grandson of Billy Graham, Tullian Tchividjian opens up about his turbulent adolescence and struggles with God and what happened to bring him back to the cross. Plus, Christopher spent the first 16 years of his life with a paralyzed colon and ... ... Read Transcript


THERE WAS NO WAY TO FIX

IT.

BORN WITH A PARALYZED

STOMACH.

SHE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO

HOLD ANYTHING DOWN.

A CHILD WHO STRUGGLED HIS

WHOLE LIFE --

WE WANTED HIM TO LIVE A

NORMAL LIFE.

-- GETS A VISIT FROM THE

SUPERNATURAL.

IT WAS LIKE, WHAT JUST

HAPPENED?

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

SOMETHING IN YOUR KITCHEN IN

KILLING YOU.

THAT'S THE LATEST IN THE

HEALTH FINDINGS.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU

ABOUT IT ON THIS PROGRAM.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS.

BUT IN CASE YOU HAVE ANY

INVESTMENTS, WALL STREET HAS

GOTTEN OFF TO A ROUGH START

THIS YEAR.

WITH THE DOW JONES ALREADY

DOWN 7%.

AND NOW INVESTORS ARE ASKING

WHAT'S COMING UP NEXT?

Terry: WELL, SOME

EXPERTS SAY THAT THE MARKET

HAS MORE UPS AND DOWNS AHEAD

OF IT BEFORE STOCKS FINALLY

REGAINED THEIR FOOTING.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IT'S BEEN A

ROUGH, SCARY RIDE FOR STOCKS

SO FAR IN 2014.

WITH THE MARKET ON A

ROLLERCOASTER RIDE, AND DOWN

MORE THAN 5% FOR THE YEAR

ALREADY.

MONDAY U.S. STOCKS WERE

HAMMERED.

THE DOW JONES AVERAGE

DROPPED MORE THAN 300

POINTS, IT'S BIGGEST DECLINE

SINCE JUNE OF 2013.

STANDARD AND POOR'S LOST 40

POINTS, AND THE NASDAQ

DROPPED 2.6%.

ONE REASON?

A REPORT SHOWS THAT U.S.

MANUFACTURING BARELY

EXPANDED LAST MONTH,

DROPPING TO AN EIGHT-MONTH

LOW.

THE WEATHER EMERGED AS A

COMMON PROBLEM FOR THE

ECONOMY LAST MONTH.

COLD AND SNOW GRINDED SMALL

BUSINESSES TO A HALT.

INVESTORS WORRY THAT COULD

HAVE A SPILL-OVER EFFECT ON

JOBS.

MANY STORK WATCHERS TOOK THE

STOCK MARKET IN STRIDE.

BASED ON TODAY'S CLOSE,

THE S&P 500 IS NOW IN A PULL

BANBACK MODE, MEANING IT

HAS DECLINED BETWEEN 5% AND

10%.

MY LIF BELIEF IS WE WON'T

GO BEYOND THE 10%.

Reporter: AND ANY SIGNS

IN SLOWDOWN IN CHINA'S

ECONOMY, THE WORLD'S SECOND

LARGEST CAN SPELL BAD NEWS

BECAUSE IT IS A KEY TRADING

PARTNER FOR DEVELOPING

COUNTRIES, SUCH AS SOUTH

AFRICA AND INDONESIA.

INDEED, JAPAN SOLD OFF

SHARPLY TODAY, AND THERE IS

EVEN CONCERN THAT SOME

COUNTRIES COULD FALL INTO

SEVERE RECESSIONS, WHERE

DEFLATION HITS AND PRICES

START TO FALL WHILE

UNEMPLOYMENT RISES.

FOR NOW, MOST ANALYSTS THINK

WE ARE ONLY SEEING A

TEMPORARY PULLBACK IN PRICES

THAT ISN'T OVER YET.

I THINK INVESTORS ARE

WORRIED THAT GLOBAL ECONOMIC

GROWTH COULD BE HINDERED.

Reporter: BUT ANALYSTS

STILL EXPECT STOCKS TO RISE

IN THE LONGER TERM.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, CHARLENE.

I THINK, FOLKS, WHAT WE'RE

DEALING WITH IS AN

INCREDIBLE OVERHANG OF

DEBT.

THERE IS DEBT EVERYWHERE.

THERE IS DEBT IN ARGENTINA,

AND THERE IS DEBT IN BRAZIL,

AND THERE IS DEBT IN THE

SOVIET UNION, AND IN THE

UNITED STATES THAT IS

STAGGERING.

SOONER OR LATER THE DEBTS

HAVE TO BE PAID OFF.

AND WHO IS GOING TO PAY THEM

OFF?

WHERE IS THE ULTIMATE

SOURCE?

THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN

THE ULTIMATE SOURCE, BUT NO

LONGER.

WHEN WE HAVE A RETRENCHMENT

FINALLY, IT IS GOING TO BE

UGLY.

I WOULD URGE CAUTION.

I THINK WE DON'T NEED TO

HAVE ANY WILD GAMBLES THESE

DAYS.

THIS IS A TIME FOR

RETRENCHMENT AND CARE

BECAUSE WHEN SOMEBODY PULLS

THE PLUG, IT IS GOING TO BE

UGLY.

THE POLITICAL CRISIS IN

UKRAINE HAS BEEN IN THE

NEWS.

WHAT HASN'T BEEN IN THE NEWS

IS HOW CHRISTIANS IN UKRAINE

ARE RESPONDING.

WE HAVE A MAJOR PRESENCE IN

THAT COUNTRY, AND A BIG

STUDIO OF KIEV, AND JOHN

JESSUP HAS THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, THAT'S

RIGHT.

PROTEST LEADERS IN UKRAINE

ARE SEEKING CONSTITUTIONAL

REFORMS TO MAKE CHANGES IN

THEIR GOVERNMENT.

THE PARLIAMENT TOOK UP THOSE

MEASURES TODAY.

MEANWHILE, IN THE MIDST OF

ALL OF THE POLITICAL STRIFE,

CHRISTIANS ARE SPREADING THE

GOSPEL.

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US THAT

STORY.

George: ALL EYES ARE ON

THE UKRAINIAN PARLIAMENT, AS

LAWMAKERS DEBATE THE

CONSTITUTION AND

PRESIDENTIAL POWERS.

WHILE THEY MEET, TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF UKRAINIANS

CONTINUE TO DEMONSTRATE ON

THE STREETS OF KIEV.

DEMANDING THAT THE UKRAINIAN

PRESIDENT, VIKTOR

YANUKOVYCH, STEP DOWN FROM

POWER.

THIS IS BECAUSE HE DECIDED

TO REBUFF ON A MULTI-MILLION

DEAL THAT WOULD HAVE BROUGHT

CLOSER RELATIONS WITH THE

EUROPEAN UNION.

THIS PAST SUNDAY AS

THOUSANDS WERE GATHERING ON

INDEPENDENCE SQUARE, THE

EPICENTER OF THE POLITICAL

CRISIS, HUNDREDS OF

CHRISTIAN VOLUNTEERS ALSO

FIND OUT.

THEY HAD A MISSION.

THEY HAD 15,000 COPIES OF

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN TO HAND

OUT.

PEOPLE ARE LOOKING TO THE

POLITICIANS TO SOLVE OUR

CRISIS.

BUT WE'RE HERE TO SAY IT IS

NOT POLITICS, BUT JESUS

CHRIST WHO IS THE ANSWER FOR

UKRAINE.

George: AND SINCE LAST

NOVEMBER, THE CHURCHES HERE

IN UKRAINE HAVE BEEN

ACTIVELY INVOLVED.

THEY CEASED THE OPPORTUNITY

TO SPEAK TRUTH AND HOPE INTO

THE POLITICAL CRISIS.

CHURCHES HAVE HELD 24-HOUR

PRAYER VIGILS.

CBN KIEV HAS BEEN ACTIVELY

INVOLVED AS THEY HAVE BEEN

FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS, USING

TELEVISION AND OTHER

EVANGELISTIC TOOLS TO SHARE

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS

EXCITING TO ME IS WE ARE NOT

EMBARRASSED TO NAME THE NAME

OF GOD, NOT EMBARRASSED TO

NAME THE NAME OF JESUS

CHRIST.

WE'VE GOT PLACARDS DOWN

THERE OF SAYING.

SAYING, "PRAY TO JESUS."

AND THEY'RE PRAYING FROM THE

STAGE DOWN THERE MORNING AND

NIGHT.

THEY OPEN UP EVERY MORNING

WITH THE LORD'S PRAYER.

George: CBN NEWS HAS AN

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THE

FORMER HEAD OF THE MINISTER

OF DEFENSE HERE IN UKRAINE.

HE TOLD ME HOW ENCOURAGED HE

WAS BY THE ROLE THE CHURCH

WAS PLAYING.

ALL CHURCHES, ALL

DENOMINATIONS, WITH NO

EXCEPTIONS, THEY ARE HERE.

THEY ARE SPREADING AN

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ON THOSE

BARRICADES.

AND WHEN THE POLICE STARTED

TO ATTACK, IT WAS THE

CHRISTIANS WHO STOOD AND

CALLED FOR PEACE.

George: AS I HAVE SPENT

TIME HERE ON THE STREETS OF

KIEV, MEETING WITH

DEMONSTRATORS, BUT ALSO MORE

IMPORTANTLY WITH THE CHURCH,

THEY SAY THEY WILL CONTINUE

TO SPEAK HOPE AND LAY THE

FOUNDATION, THE BIBLICAL

FOUNDATIONS, THAT THEY PRAY

WILL ONE DAY BRING PEACE AND

PROSPERITY TO THEIR NATION.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

KIEV, UKRAINE.

Reporter: HERE AT HOME,

JUST AS THE EAST COAST IS

BARELY DIGGING ITSELF OUT OF

A WINTER STORM.

HALF OF THE COUNTRY IS

GETTING ANOTHER ROUND OF ICY

WEATHER.

25 STATES ARE PREPARING FOR

A WEEK OF SNOW, ICE AND

RAIN.

THE SNOWFALL BEGINS THIS

AFTERNOON IN THE MIDWEST,

AND THE NORTHEAST WILL GET

MORE SNOW THIS EVENING AND

INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY, MAKING

IT HARDER FOR FOOTBALL FANS

TRYING TO LEAVE AFTER THE

SUPER BOWL.

WITH THE WEATHER GETTING

SO BAD, I CALLED THIS

MORNING AND GOT AN EARLIER

FLIGHT.

AND THEN IT GOT DELAYED AND

DELAYED AND NOW IT IS

DELAYED AGAIN.

Reporter: MORE THAN

1,000 FLIGHTS HAVE BEEN

CANCELLED ACROSS THE COUNTRY

TODAY.

PAT?

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

THING THAT IS SO AMAZING,

FOLKS, AND IT HAS BEEN

POINTED OUT, AND I'LL ADD A

LITTLE EXCLAMATION POINT TO

IT, WE HAD A SPATE OF

SEVERAL WEEKS OF ICY COLD,

SUB-ZERO WEATHER IN PARTS OF

THE COUNTRY, TERRIBLE

SNOWSTORMS AND ICY ROADS AND

WINTERY CONDITIONS.

NOW IT IS RETURNING TO

WINTERY CONDITIONS, ICY

ROADS, HEAVY SNOWSTORMS, AND

BLIZZARD CONDITIONS, BUT

THAT ONE TIME THEY HAD A

SUPER BOWL.

AND SUDDENLY IT GOT WARM

DOWN HERE.

THE TEMPERATURE WAS LIKE

60°.

AND THE SKIES CLEARED, AND

THEY HAD A MARVELOUS TIME

AND IT ALL CLOSED DOWN

AGAIN.

I HATE TO THINK THAT THE

LORD IS IN FAVOR OF FOOTBALL

ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, BUT

CERTAINLY --

Terry: I'D LIKE TO

THINK OF THAT AS A GIVEN.

Pat: FROM GREENBAY, OF

COURSE YOU DO.

Terry: EXACTLY.

Pat: IN ANY EVENT,

WHATEVER IT WAS, IT WAS AN

AMAZING THING, AND IT WAS A

NICE THING FOR OUR COUNTRY

TO HAVE SOMETHING THAT MADE

THEM HAPPY.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, WHILE

MUCH OF THE COUNTRY IS

DEALING WITH SNOW AND ICE,

CALIFORNIA IS GOING THROUGH

AN HISTORIC DROUGHT THAT

COULD TURN OUT TO BE THE

WORST IN 500 YEARS.

AND WITH LITTLE TO NO RAIN

THIS YEAR, THE DROUGHT IS

HURTING RESIDENTS AND

FARMERS.

AS KATE BURKE BAROMETRIC

CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS, IT

COULD SOON AFFECT THE REST

OF THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: CALIFORNIA IS

RUNNING OUT OF WATER,

PARCHED FIELD AND PARCHED

LIVESTOCK LED GOVERNOR JERRY

BROWN TO DECLARE AN

EMERGENCY.

SIMPLY PUT, THERE IS NOT

ENOUGH WATER TO GO AROUND.

Reporter: ON FRIDAY,

STATE OFFICIALS ANNOUNCED

THERE IS NO WATER LEFT IN

THE MAIN DISTRIBUTION

SYSTEM.

AND THEY WOULDN'T BE

DELIVERING ANY WATER TO

LOCAL AGENCIES THIS YEAR.

INSTEAD, THEY WILL BE FORCED

TO RELY ON OTHER SUPPLIES.

TODAY'S ACTIONS MEAN THAT

EVERYONE, FARMERS, FISH,

PEOPLE IN OUR CITIES AND

TOWNS, WILL GET LESS WATER

AS A RESULT.

THAT THESE ACTIONS WILL

PROTECT US ALL BETTER IN THE

LONG RUN.

Reporter: THE MOVE

AFFECTS MORE THAN 25 MILLION

PEOPLE, MOST NOTABLY

CALIFORNIA'S FARMERS.

THE CITRUS BELT, THE

GRAPES, THE NUTS, ALL OF

THEM.

IT'S THE EAST SIDE.

WHEN YOU TAKE THEM TO ZERO

WATER ALLOCATION, WHICH IS

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN

HERE, IT IS GOING TO BE A

MAJOR CRISIS FOR THOSE

CITIES.

Reporter: THE IMPACT

COULD SPREAD ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, PINCHING THE

NATION'S FOOD SUPPLY.

THIS YEAR WE'LL SEE MAYBE

A LITTLE LESS PRODUCT OR A

LITTLE SMALLER.

IF WE ANOTHER YEAR LIKE

THIS, IT WILL BE A TRAGEDY.

Reporter: CALIFORNIA

HAS ALREADY EXPERIENCED

THREE YEARS OF BELOW NORMAL

RAIN AND SNOW.

NOW 17 COMMUNITIES AND WATER

DISTRICTS ARE WITHIN 100

DAYS OF COMPLETELY RUNNING

OUT OF WATER.

GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN IS

ASKING EVERYONE TO DO THEIR

PART TO CONSERVE.

DON'T FLUSH MORE THAN YOU

HAVE TO.

DON'T SHOWER LONGER THAN YOU

NEED TO.

AND TURN THE WATER OFF WHEN

YOU'RE SHAVING OR BRUSHING

YOUR TEETH.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS.

PAT, SOME PRETTY TOUGH

TIMES THERE WEATHER-WISE IN

CALIFORNIA.

Pat: UP IN THE SAN

JOAQUIN VALLEY, THAT IS LIKE

THE BREAD BASKET OF THE

NATION.

BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN AGRICULTURAL

PRODUCE.

IF THAT WATER IS CUT OFF TO

THOSE FARMERS AND DON'T HAVE

THAT, IT WILL SKYROCKET

PRICES.

NOT ONLY RUN PRICES UP, WE

WON'T BE ABLE TO GET THINGS

WE'RE USED TO EATING.

IT WILL BE A MAJOR HIT ON

THE UNITED STATES.

JERRY BROWN, I SAW TODAY, IS

PROPOSING A CANAL FROM UP IN

THE SAN FRANCISCO -- NORTH

OF SAN FRANCISCO TO BRING IT

DOWN INTO THE SOUTHERN PART

OF THE STATE.

AND, OF COURSE, THERE ARE

OPPONENTS THAT SAY WHAT'S

THAT GOING TO DO.

IT MAY ALLEVIATE IT, OR IT

MIGHT NOT.

THEY'RE NOT SURE.

IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM.

YOU MAY NOT LIKE WHAT COMES

OUT OF CALIFORNIA, BUT IF

THERE IS EVER A TIME YOU

NEED TO PRAY ABOUT IT, YOUR

OWN INTERESTS ARE AT STAKE.

I THINK WE SHOULD PRAY FOR

THEM TO HAVE THE WATER THEY

NEED.

THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE IN THE

SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY AND

AROUND THAT AGRICULTURAL

BELT.

BAKERSFIELD AND ON UP.

IT IS A CRISIS.

I DON'T WANT TO BE AN

ALARMIST, BUT THE WORST IN

500 YEARS SOUNDS PRETTY BAD

TO ME.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, THE

WORLD COULD BE FACING A

RECORD NUMBER OF NEW CANCER

CASES IN THE NEXT 20 YEARS.

THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION

SAYS THE NUMBER OF CASES

WILL RISE BY 57%.

THE AGENCY'S REPORT SAYS

ABOUT HALF OF THOSE CANCERS

COULD BE PREVENTED BY

FOCUSING ON ISSUES LIKE

OBESITY, DRINKING, AND

SMOKING, ALONG WITH

ENCOURAGING EXERCISE AND

SCREENING PROGRAMS.

TOO MUCH SUGAR LITERALLY

COULD BE DEADLY FOR YOU.

IT DOESN'T TAKE THAT MUCH

EXTRA SUGAR TO SUBSTANTIALLY

RAISE THE RISK TO YOUR

HEART.

MOST AMERICANS EAT MORE THAN

THE SAFEST AMOUNT.

JUST DRINKING TWO 12-OUNCE

CANS OF SODA SUBSTANTIALLY

RAISES THE RISK OF HEART

PROBLEMS FOR PEOPLE WHO

NORMALLY EAT 2,000 CALORIES

A DAY.

THE LINK BETWEEN SUGAR AND

HEART PROBLEMS DOESN'T APPLY

TO THE OVERWEIGHT.

IT WAS ALSO FOUND IN PEOPLE

WHO REGISTER AT NORMAL

RATES.

THE SAFEST AMOUNT OF SUGAR

TO EAT IS LESS THAN 10% OF

YOUR DAILY CALORIES.

AND, PAT, YOU'VE GOT TO

WONDER WHAT IT WILL

EVENTUALLY TAKE TO SHIFT

PEOPLE'S ATTITUDES TOWARDS

ADDED SUGARS.

Pat: THE PROBLEM, JOHN,

IS IT IS HID DEAN.

HID DIN.

HIDDEN.

THE HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP

IS HIDDEN IN EVERYTHING.

WE THINK WE HAVE TO ENTICE

LITTLE CHILDREN INTO EATING

CEREAL, SO WE HAVE CAPTAIN

CRUNCH AND ALL THOSE THINGS

LOADED WITH SUGAR.

I HAVE IN FRONT OF ME

SOMETHING TO SHOW YOU WHAT

IT IS GOING TO BE LIKE.

THIS IS -- GOOD GRIEF, I'D

NEVER MAKE IT.

SOUP AND ICE CREAM.

THIS THING DOESN'T HAVE ONE

OF THOSE LITTLE DEALS.

Terry: NO.

I THINK YOU'VE GOT TO

JUST --

Pat: I'M SORRY.

ALL RIGHT.

THAT MUCH OF THAT.

WHERE IS MY SPOON?

Terry: THERE IS YOUR

SPOON.

Pat: OH, THIS IS MY

SPOON.

WHAT I DID THERE IS -- HOW

MANY IS THAT?

THAT IS FIVE TEASPOONS RIGHT

THERE.

Terry: FIVE TEASPOONS

IN ONE SCOOP OF ICE CREAM.

Pat: ONE, TWO, THREE,

FOUR, FIVE.

OKAY.

THERE IS THAT AWFUL-LOOKING

LITTLE THING I JUST DUMPED

IN THERE.

ONE LITTLE SCOOP OF

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM, AND

THAT'S HOW MANY IT IS.

THIS IS A SODA.

I ASKED FOR A COKE, BUT THEY

DON'T EVEN WANT TO ADVERTISE

COKES ON A SHOW.

NOBODY WOULD DRINK THIS

STUFF.

IN ANY EVENT, WHEREVER THEY

GOT IT -- COULD YOU GIVE ME

A MEASURING CUP, SOMEBODY.

Terry: HERE WE GO.

BRING IT IN.

Pat: I'M SO GLAD.

THIS IS SO SPUR OF THE

MOMENT.

THIS IS THE HANDY CAN OF

COKE.

AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S THE REAL

THING.

IT IS THE PAUSE THAT

REFRESHES AND ALL OF THAT

STUFF.

THIS IS A STANDARD CAN OF

COKE, AND IT HAS -- WHAT

DOES IT HAD, TERRY?

Terry: LET'S SEE WHAT

YOU'VE GOT HERE.

NINE TEASPOONS OF SUGAR.

140 CALORIES.

Pat: THIS ONE CAN OF

COKE.

Terry: WOW!

Pat: ALL RIGHT, PUT

THAT IN THERE.

Terry: WOW!

Pat: I'LL GIVE THIS TO

DR. OZ WHEN I'M FINISHED.

THERE IS A CAN.

OKAY, NOW HOW MANY OF THIS

THING?

Terry: THAT SAYS NINE

TEASPOONS OF SUGAR.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR --

Terry: IT'S FIZZING.

Pat: -- FIVE, SIX,

SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE.

Terry: GOOD GRIEF.

Pat: NOW, THAT'S ONE

SCOOP OF ICE CREAM PLUS A

COKE.

Terry: SO YOU'VE GOT

NINE AND 13 -- WHAT DID YOU

PUT -- OH, THE SCOOP OF

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM -- OH,

5.

SO 14 TEASPOONS OF SUGAR.

Pat: AND, OF COURSE

THEY HAVE THESE THINGS.

Terry: CINNAMON ROLLS.

Pat: I'M NOT GOING TO

THROW THAT IN THAT MESS.

I'LL LET YOU EAT ONE OF

THESE THINGS.

THIS DOES NOT COME FROM

CINABON -- MAYBE IT DOES.

IT IS THE CINNAMON ROLL WITH

ALL OF THE STUFF IN IT.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: OKAY, THE

CINNAMON ROLL,

13 TEASPOONS.

Pat: ALL RIGHT, LET'S

GO FOR THAT.

13?

Terry: 13 -- WELL, THAT

THE NOT EXACTLY A LITTLE

ROLL.

Pat: WELL, IT'S WHAT

YOU WOULD GET IF YOU WENT TO

CINABON.

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR --

Terry: IT IS MAKING ME

KIND OF SICK.

Pat: THIS IS WHAT

YOU'RE EATING.

Terry: I DON'T EAT

THAT.

Pat: -- FIVE, SIX,

SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, 10, 11,

12, 13.

Terry: THIS IS LIKE THE

DRUG OF YOUR CHOICE.

Pat: THE BOWL IS FILLED

UP WITH SUGAR.

NOW, WHEN YOU ADD IT ALL

TOGETHER -- OH, MY GOODNESS,

IT'S ALL FALLING APART.

Terry: DON'T LET HIM IN

YOUR KITCHEN.

Pat: BUT THIS IS THE

STANDARD BREAKFAST.

SOMEBODY IS GOING TO HAVE A

CINNAMON ROLL, AND A CUP OF

COFFEE WITH SUGAR IN IT.

AND THEY GO OUT AND MAY HAVE

A COKE OR TWO.

AND THIS IS GIVING US HEART

CONDITIONS.

THIS IS CAUSING

IMFLAMMATION.

IT IS CAUSING DIABETES.

IT IS CAUSING ALZHEIMER'S.

AND ON TOP OF THIS, OUR

DEAR, WONDERFUL GOVERNMENT,

THE TAXPAYER'S FRIEND, IS

SUBSIDIZING THE PEOPLE WHO

GROW SUGAR, ESPECIALLY THOSE

CUBANS DOWN IN THE SOUTH,

THE FARMERS WHO HAVE COME

INTO THIS COUNTRY, AND

THEY'VE GOT HUGE SUGAR

PLANTATIONS IN FLORIDA.

THEY GET SUBSIDIES.

WE SUBSIDIZE FOREIGN

COMPANIES, FOREIGN

CORPORATIONS, TO GROW SUGAR

TO KEEP THE PRICE OF SUGAR

HIGH SO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

HAVE TO PAY A LOT.

NOT ONLY DOES IT KILL THEM,

BUT THEY GET SICK.

Terry: IT'S DEADLY.

Pat: I SHOULD NEVER DO

DEMONSTRATIONS ON

TELEVISION.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: NOT WITHOUT A

BIB.

Pat: NOT WITHOUT A

BIB.

NOT WITHOUT A COUNTER.

THANK GOODNESS YOU WERE

COUNTING.

THAT JUST SHOWS YOU WHAT

YOU'RE DOING TO YOURSELF.

ONE COKE, ONE CINNAMON ROLL,

AND ONE SCOOP OF ICE CREAM.

Terry: AND THERE ARE

ALTERNATIVES.

I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO

ARE USING STEVIA NOW.

Pat: I'M A STEVIA FAN.

STEVIA IS NATURAL, AND

LITTLE TEENY, TEENY BITS OF

IT.

YOU'VE GOT TO STOP DRINKING

COKES AND SWEETENED DRINKS.

WHETHER IT IS ORANGE CRUSH

OR WHATEVER IT IS.

AND THESE SUGARY FOODS.

I HAVE BERRIES, UNSWEETENED,

DELICIOUS, FROZEN BERRIES.

MIXED BERRIES.

YOU CAN GET THEM AT PRICE

CLUB OR COSCO.

AND I HAVE NUTS.

Terry: I THOUGHT YOU

ATE OATMEAL?

Pat: I HAVE OATMEAL

ALONG WITH THE NUTS, OAT

BRAN AND SOME KIND OF

SEVEN-GRAIN CEREAL, AND

MAYBE I PUT A LITTLE SYRUP

IN IT, BUT, IN ANY EVENT,

YOU CAN PUT STEVIA ON IT.

WE WANT YOU TO LIVE LONGER.

WE NEED YOU, TERRY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

BOY WHO WAS BORN WITHOUT THE

ABILITY TO DIGEST ANY FOOD.

SEE THE AMAZING STORY OF HIS

HEALING.

BUT BEFORE THAT, WAR COMES

TO THE DOORSTEPS OF SYRIAN

CHRISTIANS.

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHO IS

HELPING THEM WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

THIS IS "THE 700 CLUB"

YOU'RE WATCHING.

THIS IS NOT A COOKING SHOW.

IT'S NOT DR. OZ.

IT IS "THE 700 CLUB."

THE CIVIL WAR IN SYRIA IS

STILL RAGING, AND ISLAMICS

ARE DRIVING HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS FROM

THEIR HOMES.

THE SITUATION IS SO BAD THAT

CHRISTIAN LEADERS FEAR THE

CHURCH IN SYRIA MAY

DISAPPEAR UNLESS THEY CAN

GET HELP TO OTHER

COUNTRIES.

AS GARY LANE REPORTS, THERE

IS ONE GROUP IN SYRIA THAT

OFFERS HOPE.

Reporter: SYRIAN REBELS

OPEN FIRE ON A GOVERNMENT

ARMY TANK, PROTECTING AN

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN SITE IN

THE CITY OF SEDNAI.

THE HOUSE AND CHURCH ARE

LOCATED HERE, AS IS THIS

GIANT JESUS STATUE.

LOCALS SAY IT IS LARGER THAN

THE ONE IN RIO DE JANEIRO.

THEY TOOK UP ARMS TO DEFEND

THE AREA FROM ISLAMICS BENT

ON DESTROYING THE CHURCH AND

THE STATUE.

THE CHRISTIANS REPORTEDLY

KILLED DOZENS OF FOREIGN

JIHADI FIGHTERS DURING A

SEVEN-HOUR BATTLE.

MORE AND MORE MUSLIM REBELS

ARE ATTACKING SYRIA'S

CHRISTIANS.

LAST SEPTEMBER THEY

ASSAULTED THE ANCIENT

CHRISTIAN CITY OF MALULA.

THEY RAMPAGED THROUGH

MALULA, KILLING SEVERAL

CATHOLICS IN THE PROCESS.

THE SYRIAN ARMY EVENTUALLY

RETOOK THE CITY, BUT THE

REBELS INVADED AGAIN TWO

MONTHS LATER AND REPORTEDLY

KIDNAPPED 12 NUNS.

THE ONGOING TARGETING OF THE

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES HAS

THREATENED MANY.

ELLIOT ABRAMS WAS NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR FOR

PRESIDENT BUSH.

HE SAYS HE CAN'T FAULT THE

CHRISTIANS FOR LEAVING.

IF YOU WERE, I THINK, A

CHRISTIAN FATHER IN SYRIA,

LOOKING AT YOUR CHILDREN AND

THEIR FUTURE, YOU KNOW, I

THINK YOU WOULD WANT THEM TO

GET OUT.

AND NOT JUST NOW, FOR

SAFETY, BUT FOR THE FUTURE,

TOO.

I THINK YOU'D BE SAYING, GO

TO AMERICA.

Reporter: BUT NOT ALL

CHRISTIANS CAN LEAVE THE

COUNTRY OR TAKE UP ARMS TO

PROTECT THEMSELVES.

WHO WILL PROTECT THEM?

THERE IS ONE GROUP WILLING

TO RISK THEIR LIVES TO

PROTECT SYRIA'S CHRISTIANS.

THE COUNTRY'S KURDISH

POPULATION.

TINA RAMIREZ HEADS UP A

NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION

CALLED "HARD WIRED."

MY EXPERIENCE IN SYRIA

WAS POSITIVE.

FOR A LONG TIME THEY WERE

DEFENDING CHRISTIANS THAT

WERE BEING PERSECUTED

THERE.

Reporter: LAST YEAR THE

KURDS CLAIMED AUTONOMY OVER

SYRIA KURDISTAN.

THE CHRISTIANS LIVING IN

CITIES, LIKE CAMISHLEY ARE

MORE PROTECTED.

IN THE BEGINNING, THE

ONES LIVING THERE HAD

GREATER SAFETY.

Reporter: THE KURDISH

MALITIAS HAD WON MANY

BATTLES AGAINST JIHADIS BENT

ON CONTROLLING THE REGION.

JAHAL IS NOW A CAMP LEADER

IN NORTHERN IRAQ.

WITH THIS ARABIZATION, WE

DO NOT WANT TO BE CONTROLLED

BY ARABS.

THAT'S WHY THEY ARE

ATTACKING US.

STILL, WE FIGHT AGAINST

THEM.

WE FOUGHT al-QAEDA FOR THE

PAST 13, 14 YEARS WITH

SUCCESS.

WE HAVE KILLED MANY

ISLAMISTS.

Reporter: THE SAME

THING HAPPENED IN IRAQ.

IRAQI KURDS STOOD WITH

AMERICA, OPPOSING SADDAM

HUSSEIN AND FOREIGN

JIHADISTS IN THE IRAQ WAR.

AND TODAY THEY HAVE THEIR

OWN AUTONOMOUS REGION.

IRAQI CHRISTIANS WHO FLED

PERSECUTION IN CITIES LIKE

BAGHDAD AND MOSUL, FOUND A

SAFE HAVEN IN NORTHERN

IRAQ.

THEY'RE PRO-AMERICAN, AND

THEY HAVE SOMETHING OF A

FREE MARKET ECONOMY.

PEOPLE WHO GO TO KURDISTAN

WILL TELL YOU, YOU THINK

YOU'RE IN EUROPE.

IT IS WONDERFUL.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

THE SYRIAN WAR WILL COME TO

AN END, AND LIKE IRAQ, THE

COUNTRY MAY END UP DIVIDED

INTO ZONES OF INFLUENCE,

INCLUDING A PERMANENT,

AUTONOMOUS, SYRIAN

KURDISTAN.

A BALKANIZATION OF THE

COUNTRY?

IT IS A BALKANIZATION OF

THE COUNTRY.

I DON'T THINK IT WILL BE A

DIFFERENT COUNTRIES BEING

SET UP, BUT THE ZONES ARE

THERE, JUST AS IN IRAQ.

Reporter: SHOULD THE

U.S. PROVIDE MORE SUPPORT

FOR THE SYRIAN KURDS?

I HOPE OUR INTELLIGENCE

SERVICES ARE IN TOUCH WITH

THEM.

I THINK WE SHOULD BE WILLING

TO HELP THOSE GROUPS.

WHO STOOD WITH AMERICA IN

THE IRAQ WAR?

IF AMERICA WANTS TO APPLY

DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, IF AMERICA IS LOOKING

FOR LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP

IN THE MIDDLE EAST, IF

AMERICA IS LOOKING FOR

NATIONS THAT WILL STAND WITH

THEM, IT IS THE KURDS.

Reporter: A SECULAR

MUSLIM FOREST IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, ONE THAT OPPOSES

ISLAMIC EXTREMISM, AND IS

FRIENDLY TO AMERICANS, AND

IS TOLERANT OF CHRISTIANS.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS, IRBIL,

IRAQ.

Pat: YOU KNOW, IT IS

REMARKABLE.

THEY HAD THE PESH MERGA THAT

CAME TO FIGHT WITH US

AGAINST SADDAM HUSSEIN.

AND THEN WHEN THE SO-CALLED

DEMOCRATICIZATION TOOK

PLACE, THE KURDS TOOK UP

THAT PLACE IN KIRKUK.

AND THEY HAVE SET UP AN

AUTONOMOUS REGION AND IT IS

PROSPEROUS AND GROWING.

THERE IS GREAT FREEDOM AND

GREAT BUSINESS AND

PROSPERITY, AND, OF COURSE,

THEY HAVE A POTLOAD OF OIL.

THEY TOOK OVER THE OIL

FIELDS IN THAT AREA.

AND THERE IS NO QUESTION THE

TURKS DON'T WANT A

KURDISTAN.

BUT IF THE KURDS IN IRAQ

JOIN WITH THE KURDS IN

TURKEY AND THE KURDS IN

SYRIA, THEY WILL HAVE THEIR

OWN COUNTRY.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY WANT.

BUT THEY'RE GOOD PEOPLE.

TERRY, AS I UNDERSTAND, THE

LEGENDARY FIGHTER SOLA

SOLADINE IS A OCCURRED.

THEY CERTAINLY AREN'T INTO

THE EXTREME ISLAMIC THING.

Terry: THEY HAVE A

STRONG HISTORY.

Pat: ALL THE WAY BACK.

THEY'RE STRONG DEFENDERS OF

AMERICA.

THEY'RE STRONG DEFENDERS OF

FREEDOM, AND THEY HAVE SET

UP IN IRAQ A VERY PROSPEROUS

COMMUNITY.

AND THEY HAVE FOUR OR FIVE,

THAT I CAN NAME, VERY

PROSPEROUS OIL COMPANIES.

Terry: WOW.

CAN WE SUPPORT THEM AT THIS

POINT --

Pat: THE UNITED STATES

IS SUPPORTING ANYBODY LIKE

IT OUGHT TO.

WE OUGHT TO BE SUPPORTING

THEM.

WE ABSOLUTELY OUGHT TO BE

DOING IT.

YOU SEE, WHEN SADDAM WAS --

HE HELD THE ISLAMIC

EXTREMISTS IN CHECK, AND THE

CHRISTIANS HAD A CERTAIN

DEGREE OF AUTONOMY.

THE SAME THING IN SYRIA.

YOU DON'T LIKE ASSAD, AND HE

WAS A BUTCHER AND ALL OF THE

REST OF IT, BUT HE

SUPPRESSED THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

AND HE ALLOWED THE

CHRISTIANS FREEDOM.

NOW WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OUT,

AND YOU SAY WE DON'T LIKE

ASSAD'S SON, BUT,

NEVERTHELESS, WHEN HE GOES,

THERE IS GOING TO BE CHAOS.

SO WE DON'T KNOW WHO TO

SUPPORT.

SOONER OR LATER WE'VE GOT TO

RECOGNIZE THE KURDS ARE OUR

FRIENDS.

AND IF THEY HAVE THEIR OWN

COUNTRY, GOOD FOR THEM.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

16-YEAR-OLD WHO LIVED HIS

ENTIRE LIFE WITHOUT EATING A

BITE.

I TRIED FOOD, BUT I JUST

COULDN'T SWALLOW IT.

I JUST DRAINED IT OUT AT THE

END OF THE DAY.

Terry: HEAR HOW HE

FINALLY ATE A REAL MEAL.

THAT'S NEXT.

*

Pat: WELCOME BACK,

FOLKS.

UNTIL THIS FEATURE, I HAD

NEVER HEARD OF SOMETHING

CALLED AN IRON STOMACH.

SOME PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY

BORN WITH SUCH A THING.

BUT CHRISTOPHER GUNNERSON

DIDN'T HAVE AN IRON

STOMACH.

HIS STOMACH WAS PARALYZED.

FOR 16 YEARS CHRISTOPHER

COULDN'T EAT A THING.

BUT HIS FAMILY NEVER STOPPED

PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE.

HE WASN'T GAINING WEIGHT,

AND THEN HE STARTED LOSING

WEIGHT.

HE WOULD EAT AND SWALLOW,

BUT THEN IT WOULD SPIT RIGHT

BACK UP.

HE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD

ANYTHING DOWN.

SO HE JUST WAS NOT GROWING.

Reporter: MIKE AND

LEANN WERE DISSEPARATE FOR

SOLUTIONS.

THEIR NEWBORN BABY WAS BORN

WITH CHRONIC PSEUDO

OBSTRUCTION.

IT PARALYZED PART OF HIS

INTESTINES.

HE WAS UNABLE TO DIGEST ANY

NUTRIENTS OR EVEN TAKE

WATER.

I WOULD PRAY EVERY NIGHT

AND NOT KNOWING WHAT THE END

GAME WAS.

NOT KNOWING IF HE WAS GOING

TO DIE OR IF HE WAS GOING TO

MAKE IT, OR WHAT THAT LOOKED

LIKE.

WE JUST HAD TO ENJOY THE

TIME WE HAD WITH HIM BECAUSE

WE JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW LONG

THAT WAS GOING TO BE.

THERE WAS NO WAY TO FIX

IT.

THE ONLY THING THEY COULD DO

WAS MAKE HIM GROW.

SO THE ISSUE WAS NOT HOW ARE

WE GOING TO CURE IT.

THE ISSUE WAS HOW ARE WE

GOING TO KEEP HE ALIVE.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET

NUTRITION INTO HIS BODY TO

KEEP HIM ALIVE AND HELP HIM

GROW.

Reporter: BABY

CHRISTOPHER WENT THROUGH

SEVERAL SURGERIES BEFORE

DOCTORS CAME UP WITH A

SOLUTION.

THEY CONNECTED A FEEDING

TUBE BY PASSING HIS

STOMACH.

THEY PUT A SECOND PORT INTO

HIS STOMACH TO PUMP OUT BILE

AND SALIVA.

IT WAS A REALLY TOUGH

TIME.

BUT I ALWAYS HEARD THIS

LITTLE VOICE, WHEN I WOULD

GET REALLY UPSET, JUST

WHISPER IN MY EAR, DON'T

WORRY, IT WILL ALL WORK OUT

IN THE END.

Reporter: THE SURGERY

ALLOWED HIM TO LEAD A

NORMAL, ACTIVE LIFE.

BUT HE GREW UP UNABLE TO EAT

OR DRINK WITHOUT PAINFUL

STOMACH ACHES AND VOMITING.

I COULD DO EVERYTHING

EVERYBODY ELSE COULD DO, BUT

DIFFERENTLY.

I TRIED FOOD, BUT I JUST

COULDN'T SWALLOW IT.

I HAD TO CHEW IT AND SPIT,

OR I DRAINED IT OUT FROM MY

TOP TUBE AT THE END OF THE

DAY.

WE JUST FIGURED IT OUT

BECAUSE WE WANTED HIM TO

LIVE A NORMAL LIFE.

WE WANTED HIM TO BE ABLE TO

FIGURE OUT, YUP, I HAVE

THESE FEEDING TUBES AND IT

IS GOOD BECAUSE IF I DIDN'T,

I WOULDN'T BE ALIVE.

I'M JUST GOING TO PRAISE GOD

FOR THAT AND I'M GOING TO

FIGURE OUT WAYS AROUND TO DO

OTHER THINGS.

Reporter: HE WORE A

BACKPACK THAT PUMPED FORMULA

INTO HIS FEEDING TUBE DURING

THE DAY.

AN I.V. POLE FED HIM AT

NIGHT.

CHRISTOPHER LIVED WITH HIS

CONDITION FOR 16 YEARS UNTIL

ONE DAY HIS FAMILY BROUGHT

HIM TO A HEALING SERVICE,

LED BY EVANGELIST BRUCE

DANNATTA.

DURING THE WHOLE TIME HE

WAS SPEAKING, I FELT LIKE A

POLE WAS IN MY STOMACH THE

WHOLE ENTIRE TIME.

Reporter: AFTER THE

SERVICE, BRUCE GATHERED

CHRISTOPHER AND HIS FAMILY

TOGETHER AND PRAYED FOR A

MIRACLE HEALING.

I THINK I HAD MY HAND ON

CHRISTOPHER'S SHOULDER, BUT

IT FELT LIKE HIS WHOLE BODY

WAS JUST, YOU KNOW,

SHAKING.

THAT G-TUBE IS JUST

VIBRATING SUPER FAST

UNDERNEATH HIS T-SHIRT.

I NOTICED THIS, SO I'M

LOOKING AT IT AND WATCHING,

AND THINKING I'VE NEVER SEEN

IT DO THAT BEFORE.

AND THEN I COULD SEE IT

MOVING DOWN HIS STOMACH,

DOWN INTO THE SECOND TUBE,

WHICH WAS THE J-TUBE.

AND THEN THE J-TUBE STARTED

DOING IT, TOO.

AND THE WHOLE THING IS JUST

DOING THIS.

I FELT JUST THIS BIG

SHOCK GO THROUGH MY SHOULDER

AND THROUGH MY STOMACH, AND

THE PULSING.

IT FELT LIKE A POUNDING

FEELING IN MY STOMACH.

I MEAN, YOU JUST KNEW

WHAT WAS HAPPENING, AND THAT

HE WAS BEING HEALED.

AND EVEN WHEN WE ALL GOT OUT

TO THE PARKING LOT, WE'RE

STANDING THERE, AND IT'S

LIKE, WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

IT WAS JUST ONE OF THOSE

MOMENTS.

IT WAS JUST ONE MOMENT IN

TIME THAT CHANGES

EVERYTHING.

WHAT I REALLY FEEL LIKE

THAT THAT WAS GOD

JUMP-STARTING MY STOMACH

BACK UP WITH A SHOCK.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

HIS FAMILY WENT OUT TO

DINNER, AND CHRISTOPHER ATE

THE FIRST FULL MEAL OF HIS

LIFE WITH NO COMPLICATIONS.

I JUST STARTED SWALLOWING

MORE AND MORE.

AND I GOT A BIGGER AND

BIGGER SMILE ON MY FACE.

AND I HAD A REALLY GOOD

TIME.

IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DAYS

OF MY LIFE.

I COULD SWALLOW AS MUCH AS I

CAN.

AND I HAD THE WHOLE PLATE

AND HAD A NICE DRINK, TOO.

Reporter: CHRISTOPHER

HAS BEEN HEALED COMPLETELY,

AND HIS FEEDLY TUBE HAS BEEN

REMOVED.

MIKE AND LEANN SAY THEY'RE

THANKFUL FOR THE LONG

JOURNEY THAT BROUGHT A

MIRACLE HEALING TO THEIR

SON.

THE HARDER THE JOURNEY,

THE BETTER THE REWARD.

THAT'S KIND OF THE WAY THAT

I LOOK AT IT NOW.

THAT IT WAS A LONG JOURNEY,

AND, WOW, WHAT A REWARD.

GOD IS SO GOOD AND HE IS

SO BIG AND SO

COMPASSIONATE.

AND HE CAN HEAL ANYTHING.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR

GOD.

WHAT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR MAN

IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD.

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE FOR

HIM.

Pat: WHAT A MARVELOUS

MIRACLE.

BUT GOD IS ABLE.

ONE TOUCH.

AND IT'S DONE.

ONE TOUCH.

JESUS NEVER TURNED ANYONE

AWAY.

THERE ISN'T ONE INSTANCE

WHERE JESUS SAID, NO, I'M

NOT GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU.

OR, NO, I PRAYED FOR YOU AND

YOU DIDN'T GET HEALED.

NEVER.

EVERYBODY WHO CAME TO HIM

GOT HEALED.

HE MADE THEM WAIT

SOMETIMES.

A WOMAN WAS MADE TO QUESTION

HER COMMITMENT, BUT SHE

STILL RECEIVED THE ANSWER.

ALL RIGHT, WE'VE HAD SOME

OTHER ANSWERS.

Terry: HERE IS SOMEONE

WHO WAS ALSO HEALED.

RONALD WAS WORKING OUTSIDE

WITHOUT PROTECTIVE GLASSES,

AND HE GOT SOMETHING IN HIS

EYE.

FOR WEEKS THAT EYE HURT.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

PAT, YOU SAID YOU'VE GOTTEN

SOME DUST IN YOUR EYEBALL,

AND IT IS GOING TO WORK ITS

WAY OUT AND BE GONE.

HE THANKED GOD FOR HEALING

HIM, AND LATER THAT DAY HE

REALIZED ALL OF THE PAIN WAS

GONE.

GOD IS ABLE.

Pat: TERRY AND I ARE

GOING TO JOIN HANDS AND

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

FOR YOU.

SO WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

LET'S TRUST GOD.

FATHER, I JOIN HANDS WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST, AND THE

TWO OF US CLAIM YOUR

PROMISES IN MATTHEW.

IF TWO OF YOU WILL AGREE ON

EARTH AS TOUCHING ANYTHING,

IT WILL BE DONE BY MY

FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN.

FATHER, THERE ARE PEOPLE IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE

SUFFERING.

SOME HAVE GOT TWISTED

INTESTINES, SOME HAVE GOT

GANGRENE, SOME HAVE GOT

ARTHRITIS, SOME HAVE GOT

BONE SPURS.

SOME HAVE GOT CANCER.

SOME HAVE GOT LEUKEMIA.

SOME, LORD, HAVE GOT

DIABETES, AND MANY OTHER

DISEASES.

BUT IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

YOU ARE THE GREAT HEALER AND

THE GREAT PHYSICIAN.

SO WE COME TO YOU, LORD, AND

SPEAK THE WORD RIGHT NOW.

FOR THOSE IN THIS AUDIENCE

WHO ARE PRAYING WITH US, IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

RECEIVE AN ANSWER TO YOUR

PRAYER.

AND MAY THE POWER OF GOD

TOUCH YOU NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

TERRY, DO YOU HAVE

SOMETHING?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE LIKE A

CHRONIC INFECTION IN YOUR

BODY.

IN GENERAL, YOUR GLANDS OR

SWOLLEN, YOUR NECK, AND YOUR

SINUSES ARE INFLAMED.

AND NOTHING YOU TAKE SEEMS

TO ALLOW YOU TO GET OVER THE

HUMP OF THAT.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

LORD, WE JUST ASK YOU TO

TOUCH THIS PERSON AND SET

THEM FREE IN JESUS' NAME.

AND THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU DO HAVE LEUKEMIA, AND IT

IS LIKE AN ADULT ONSET, AND

YOU HAVE NOT BEEN RESPONDING

TO MEDICATION.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: THANK YOU, JESUS.

OTHERS, LOOK UP AND THANK

THE LORD.

BY HIS STRIPES YOU HAVE

ALREADY BEEN HEALED IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AMEN.

WELL, BEGIN TO PRAISE THE

LORD.

GOD IS GOOD.

GOD IS GOOD.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

ALICIA SAYS, "WHERE DID

CANE'S WIFE COME FROM?

DID GOD CREATE A WIFE FOR

CANE BY USING ONE OF HIS

RIBS?"

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT ON"

AND MORE.

AND LATER, BILLY GRAHAM'S

GRANDSON TELLS US WHY HE GOT

TO MISS

THAT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

HO

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

"THE 700 CLUB."

A FEDERAL JUDGE IN NORFOLK,

VIRGINIA, IS CONSIDERING

WHETHER THE STATE'S BAN ON

SAME-SEX IS CONSTITUTIONAL.

VIRGINIA VOTERS APPROVED A

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT IN

2006, DEFINING MARRIAGE AS A

UNION OF A MAN AND WOMAN.

NOW HOMOSEXUAL COUPLES ARE

SUING TO OVERTURN THE WILL

OF THE PEOPLE, AND

VIRGINIA'S NEWLY ELECTED

DEMOCRATIC ATTORNEY-GENERAL

HAS DECIDED TO JOIN THEIR

CASE INSTEAD OF DEFENDING

THE LAW.

CONSERVATIVES ARGUE HE HAS

ABANDONED HIS DUTY TO UP

HOLD THE STATE'S LAWS.

THE JUDGE IN TODAY'S HEARING

WAS APPOINTED BY PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

BOKO HARAM IS BEING BLAMED

FOR THE DEATH OF A PASTOR IN

NIGERIA.

THE GROUP THIS WEEKEND

PREDOMINANTLY CHRISTIAN

VILLAGE.

THE GUNMAN TARGETED A CHURCH

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

*

Terry: TIME TO ANSWER

SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS IN OUR "BRING IT

ON" SEGMENT TODAY.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

ALICIA, WHO SAYS, "WHERE DID

CANE'S WIFE COME FROM?

WAS IT HIS SISTER?

DID GOD CREATE A WIFE FOR

CANE BY USING ONE OF HIS

RIBS?"

Pat: THE BIBLE IS

SILENT ON THIS, BUT WE MUST

PRESUME IT WAS A SISTER.

IN THOSE DAYS, BECAUSE THE

BLOOD LINES WERE RELATIVELY

PURE, THE PROHIBITION

AGAINST INCEST WASN'T IN

PLACE.

THE PROHIBITION CAME ABOUT

LATER ON.

THE EGYPTIAN ROYALTY ALWAYS

MARRIED WITHIN THE FAMILY,

BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND SO

FORTH, BECAUSE THEY FIGURED

THEY WERE THE PURE STOCK.

BUT LATER ON THERE WAS A

CLEAR PROHIBITION IN THE

BIBLE AGAINST THAT KIND OF

RELATIONSHIP.

BUT IN THE EARLY DAYS OF

CANE AND ABLE, IT HAD TO BE

A SISTER.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

LUANN WHO SAYS, "MY DAUGHTER

IS SIX YEARS OLD AND HAS NOT

YET BEEN BAPTIZED.

MY EX-HUSBAND, WHO IS HER

FATHER, OPPOSES THAT

BAPTISM.

HE SAYS GOD IS MADE UP.

MY DAUGHTER WANTS TO BE

BAPTIZED.

SHOULD I GO AHEAD AND DO IT

WITHOUT HIS CONSENT?"

Pat: I'M AM A BAPTIST,

AND IF THAT 6-YEAR-OLD WILL

CONFESS JESUS AS HER SAVIOR

AND SHE REALLY KNOWS HIM AND

HAS BEEN BORN AGAIN, BY ALL

MEANS YOU SHOULD COMPORT

WITH HER WISHES AND LET HERB

BAPTIZED.

THE FAC HER BE BAPTIZED.

THE FACT HER FATHER DOESN'T

BELIEVE, TOO BAD.

Terry: THIS WERE YOU

SAYS, "I KNOW SWEARING IS

WRONG, BUT AREN'T WORDS THAT

GOSH DARN, AND OTHERS BE

WRONG.

I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS

THE HEART THAT DETERMINES

WHAT IS WRONG.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: WELL, HECK IS A

DEVIATION OF HELL -- THAT'S

WHERE THEY COME FROM.

THE BRITISH TALK ABOUT

BLOODY ALL OF THE TIME.

BLOODY WELL DO THIS -- THAT

COMES FROM THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST.

IN A SENSE, IT IS

SACRELIGIOUS.

BUT WHEN YOU GET RIGHT DOWN

TO THE COMMANDMENT, "THOU

SHALT NOT TAKE THE NAME OF

YAWAY, YOUR GOD, AS

VANITY."

AND YAWAY IS A DIFFERENT

THING.

YOU READ, "I WILL EXALT THE

NAME OF THE LORD."

THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A

HIGH TOWER.

AND THE RIGHTEOUS RUN

THROUGH IT AND ARE SAVED.

THAT'S THE NAMED.

IT IS YAWAY OR YAHAWA, HE

WHO CAUSES EVERYTHING TO

BE.

HERE IS THE DEAL,

CHRISTIANS -- THE WHOLE IDEA

DO NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE

LORD IN VAIN -- YOU SAY, I'M

A CHRISTIAN, AND THAT MEANS

YOU ARE A PART OF CHRIST.

AND WHEN YOU LIVE AS IF YOU

ARE NOT, THEN YOU ARE BLAS

BLASPHEMYING HIS NAME --

Terry: BY YOUR

BEHAVIOR.

Pat: BY YOUR BEHAVIOR.

THE NAME OF GOD IS BEING

BLASPHEMIED BECAUSE OF YOU.

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE

JEWS WHO WERE NOT LIVING

ACCORDING TO THE 10

COMMANDMENTS.

SO IF WE CLAIM TO BE

CHRISTIANS AND WE'RE NOT

LIVING AS WE SHOULD, THEN

THE NAME OF JESUS IS BEING

BLASPHEMIED.

AND THAT, TO ME, IS A VERY

SERIOUS THING.

BUT I WROTE A BOOK ON THE 10

COMMANDMENTS, AND I CAN'T GO

INTO ALL OF IT RIGHT NOW.

I THINK WE OUGHT TO BE

CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT WE USE

OUR MOUTHS TO DO.

BUT WHATEVER IS NOT OF FAITH

IS SIN.

THE ORIGIN OF THAT WHOLE

THING WAS THE NAME OF GOD.

YAWAY, YAHAWA.

IT IS HEBREW.

IT IS NOT HECK, GOLLY, OR

ANY OF THOSE THINGS.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME FOR TODAY'S

QUESTIONS.

BUT WE DO THANK YOU.

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

TUWA WAS BROUGHT INTO A

RELIGION OF FAITH.

HIS FATHER IS BILLY GRAHAM.

AND HIS PARENTS RAISED HIM

IN A CHRISTIAN HOME, UNTIL

THE DAY THEY HAD TO KICK HIM

OUT.

I LITERALLY GOT INTO THE

BACK OF A POLICE CAR, AND

THEY PUT HANDCUFFS ON ME.

AND I REMEMBER LOOKING BACK

UP AT MY MOM AND DAD, AND

THIS IS THE GREATEST THING

THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME.

MY MOM IS THE OLDEST CHILD

OF BILLY AND RUTH GRAHAM.

WHICH MAKES BILLY GRAHAM MY

MATERNAL GRANDFATHER.

AND THE FLAVOR OF

CHRISTIANITY E IN MY HOME

GROWING UP WAS NOT

OPPRESSIVE.

IT WAS FUN.

BUT WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG AND

DESPERATELY TRYING TO FIT IN

SOME WHERE, AND YOU CAN'T

FIGURE OUT WHERE YOU FIT

INSIDE THE HOME, YOU TRY TO

FIGURE THAT OUTAOUAI OUT

OUTSIDE THE HOME.

I STARTED HANGING OUT WITH

PEOPLE I SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN

HANGING OUT WITH, AND DOING

THINGS I SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN

DOING.

AND ALL OF THAT CULMINATED

AT THE RIPE AGE OF 16, WHEN

MY LIFESTYLE BECAME SO

DISRUPTIVE TO THE REST OF

THE FAMILY.

AND MY FAMILY HAD NO CHOICE

BUT TO SAY, IF YOU CONTINUE

LIVING THIS WAY, YOU CAN'T

LIVE THIS WAY UNDER OUR

ROOF.

SO I BEGAN LIVING WITH

FRIENDS.

AND I WAS JUST A WILD MAN.

I WAS A WILD MAN WHEN IT

CAME TO GIRLS.

A WILD MAN WHEN IT CAME TO

DRUGS.

THERE WAS VERY, VERY LITTLE

I WOULD NOT DO.

VERY LITTLE.

MY MOM AND DAD WERE

WELL-LOVED IN OUR COMMUNITY,

AND SO THERE WERE LOTS OF

FRIENDS THEY HAD WHO WANTED

TO HELP THEM AS THEY WERE

GOING THROUGH THE THINGS

THEY WERE GOING THROUGH WITH

ME.

I CAN PARTICULARLY REMEMBER

TWO DIFFERENT MEN.

THE FIRST GUY CAME OVER TO

MY MOM AND DAD'S HOUSE AND

HE PICKED ME UP.

IT FELT A LITTLE AWKWARD

SITTING IN BURGER KING WITH

THIS GUY, WHO I DIDN'T

REALLY KNOW VERY WELL.

FOR ABOUT AN HOUR HE

BASICALLY READ ME THE RIOT

ACT.

HE TOLD ME THAT I WAS

RUINING MY LIFE.

TOLD ME THAT I WAS HURTING

MY MOM AND DAD.

WELL, I, WITHIN THE FIRST

FIVE MINUTES OF OUR

CONVERSATION, KNEW WHERE THE

CONVERSATION WAS GOING.

KNEW THAT IT WOULDN'T BE

MUCH OF A CONVERSATION AT

ALL, AND I TUNED THE GUY

OUT.

ABOUT A YEAR LATER, ANOTHER

GUY APPROACHED MY MOM AND

DAD.

AND I THOUGHT, OH, NO, NOT

AGAIN.

SO HE CALLED ME AND HE SAID,

LISTEN, I KNOW THAT LIFE IS

A LITTLE CONFUSING RIGHT

NOW.

I KNOW YOUR RELATIONSHIP

WITH YOUR MOM AND DAD ISN'T

GREAT.

IF THERE IS EVER ANYTHING

YOU NEED, I'M HEAR FOR YOU.

IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU

WANT TO TELL SOMEONE AND YOU

DON'T WANT TO TELL YOUR

PARENTS, CONSIDER ME A

CONFIDENT.

IF YOU GET INTO A JAM

FINANCIALLY.

LET ME KNOW, I'LL BE HAPPY

TO HELP.

AND THEN HE CHANGED THE

SUBJECT AND SPENT THE REST

OF THE TIME TALKING TO ME

ABOUT SPORTS OR WHATEVER.

AND I REMEMBER LEAVING THAT

CONVERSATION FEELING VERY,

VERY DIFFERENTLY.

THE PREVIOUS GUY MADE ME

FEEL ACCUSED.

AND EVEN IF THE ACCUSATIONS

ARE CORRECT, WHICH IN HIS

CASE THEY WERE, WHEN YOU'RE

ACCUSED, YOU RUN.

YOU RUN AWAY.

THE SECOND GUY MADE ME FEEL

LOVED UNCONDITIONALLY.

AND EVEN THOUGH YOU MIGHT

KNOW YOU'RE GUILTY, WHEN YOU

FEEL UNCONDITIONALLY LOVED,

YOU DON'T RUN AWAY.

YOU RUN TOWARD.

I MEAN, I WAS, AT THAT

POINT, NOW DOING THINGS,

SERIOUS THINGS, THAT I WOULD

HAVE NEVER DREAMED ABOUT

DOING EVEN WHEN I WAS 16.

AND I LEFT HOME INITIALLY.

I WENT TO JAIL A COUPLE OF

TIMES.

ALWAYS BREAKING THE LAW.

MY CONSCIENCE WAS VERY, VERY

NUMB.

THE FURTHER YOU WALK DOWN

THAT ROAD, THE EASIER IT

BECOMES TO GET DEEPER AND

DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO THE

DARK WATERS.

YOU WAKE UP ONE DAY AND GO,

HOW DID I END UP HERE?

HOW DID I END UP DOING

THIS?

MY LIFE IS A MESS.

WHAT AM I DOING?

SERIOUSLY, WHAT AM I DOING?

IT WASN'T ONE PARTICULAR

CIRCUMSTANCE.

IT WAS JUST THIS GROWING,

DEEPENING SENSE THAT

SOMETHING IS MISSING, BIG

TIME.

I HAD DONE EVERYTHING THE

WORLD HAD TOLD ME TO DO AND

HAD PURSUED EVERYTHING THE

WORLD HAD TOLD ME TO PURSUE

IN ORDER TO FIND HAPPINESS

AND MEANING AND

SIGNIFICANCE.

AND I WAS EMPTIER AND

LONELIER AT 21 THAN I HAD

BEEN WHEN I STARTED OFF ON

THIS QUEST, BACK AT 14, 15,

16 YEARS OLD.

SO I JUST STARTED GOING BACK

TO CHURCH.

WHERE I WAS BEING TOLD JESUS

PAID IT ALL.

THAT THE PRESSURE IS OFF.

YOU DON'T NEED TO SECURE FOR

YOURSELF MEANING AND VALUE

AND HAPPINESS.

JESUS ALREADY SECURED ALL OF

THOSE THINGS FOR YOU ON THE

CROSS, AND NOW GIVES THOSE

THINGS TO YOU FREE OF

CHARGE.

AND HEARING THAT WEEK AFTER

WEEK, COMBINED WITH BEING

BEAT UP BY THE DO MORE, TRY

HARDER MESSAGE OF THE WORLD

IS WHAT GOD USED TO SAVE

ME.

THE FATHER OF THE PRODIGAL

SON IN LUKE 15 FELL TO HIS

KNEES AND WRAPPED HIS ARMS

AROUND HIS SON'S LEGS AS HE

WAS COMING HOME, NOT AS HE

WAS LEAVING.

AND LOTS OF PARENTS DO IT AS

THEIR CHILD IS LEAVING,

TRYING TO DO EVERYTHING IN

THEIR POWER TO GET THEM TO

STAY.

AND THE PRODIGAL SON'S

FATHER WAS WISE.

HE LET HIM GO.

MY MOM AND DAD WERE WISE.

THEY LET ME GO.

THEY KNEW THAT ONLY GOD

COULD MAKE THE CHANGES THAT

NEEDED TO BE MADE.

AND WHAT SIN SINGULARLY

ATTRACTED ME BACK TO GOD

WHEN I WAS 21 YEARS OLD WAS

HIS LOVE FOR ME, EVIDENCED

AND EMBODIED IN THE LOVE

THAT MY MOM AND DAD HAD FOR

ME.

THE WAY THEY LOVED ME WAS

SUCH AN ACCURATE PICTURE OF

THE WAY GOD LOVES SINNERS

THAT I KNEW I COULD GO HOME

AND BE RECEIVED.

I KNEW THAT EVEN AFTER

EVERYTHING I HAD DONE, I

COULD GO HOME AND BE

WELCOMED.

Terry: AND, YOU KNOW,

THAT'S THE WAY IT IS WITH

THE FATHER, HEART OF GOD.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU'VE BEEN,

NO MATTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE,

HE'S ALWAYS THERE, WAITING

FOR YOU TO COME HOME.

WAITING FOR YOU TO COME TO

THE END OF YOURSELF.

YOU KNOW, IN A.A. THEY SAY

YOU NEED TO GET SICK AND

TIRED OF BEING SICK AND

TIRED.

MAYBE THAT'S YOU TODAY.

AND TULLIAN'S MESSAGE TO YOU

IS THAT GOD LOVES YOU NO

MATTER WHAT.

HE WANTS YOU NO MATTER

WHAT.

COME TO THE END OF YOURSELF

TODAY.

RECEIVE THE NEW BEGINNING,

OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

THAT'S SO HARD TO IMAGINE,

ISN'T IT, WHEN WE'VE DONE

THINGS AND ENGAGED IN THINGS

THAT WE KNOW ARE WRONG,

SOMETIMES SHAMEFUL.

GOD LOVES YOU.

HE LOVES YOU RIGHT WHERE YOU

ARE.

HE LOVES YOU TOO MUCH TO LET

YOU STAY THERE.

COME TO THE FATHER, HEART OF

GOD.

LET HIM CHANGE YOU.

LET HIM EMPOWER YOU WITH HIS

HOLY SPIRIT.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

TULLIAN DID IT BY GOING BACK

TO CHURCH.

JESUS IS GOD.

GOD, I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS

ANYMORE BY MYSELF.

I GET, JESUS, THAT YOU PAID

THE PRICE FOR ME.

FORGIVE MY SIN.

I AM A SINNER.

LOVE ME.

I NEED YOU.

CHANGE ME.

I WANT TO BE CHANGED.

LET ME LIVE FOR YOU.

SHOW ME HOW TO DO THAT.

FILL HE WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT.

ASK HIM.

IT'S NOT ABOUT RELIGION.

IT'S ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP.

JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU.

IF YOU HAVE A NEED IN YOUR

LIFE, AND YOU WANT SOMEONE

TO SPECIFICALLY PRAY WITH

YOU TODAY, THERE IS THE

TOLL-FREE NUMBER TO CALL.

IT'S 1-888-777-1999.

1-800-759-0700.

AND THE PERSON WHO ANSWERS

THAT PHONE IS SOMEBODY WHO

HAS ALREADY PRAYED THE SAME

PRAYER THAT WE'RE TALKING

ABOUTMENT CALABOUT.

CALL NOW.

PAT?

Pat: FOLKS, WE THANK

PIXAR LEGEND.

WE'LL SIT DOWN WITH JOHN

RATZENBERGER ON WEDNESDAY ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.
