The 700 Club - Feb 13, 2014

Gabrielle was raised in a hippie environment that disgusted her and she vowed to have opposite values, but still wound up morally bankrupt. Plus, a hairline fracture in his foot makes life miserable for Ramon, until a prayer on TV changes everything. Read Transcript


SEE HOW SOMEONE WAS ON

LIFE SUPPORT --

MY HUSBAND IS REALLY IN

THE GAME.

WE REALLY ARE ONE WITH HIM.

PLUS, A TROUBLED CHILD.

I REMEMBER BEING

DEPRESSED SINCE I WAS

YOUNG.

TURNS INTO A TORMENTED

TEENAGER.

IF I CAN'T BEAT THEM, I

MIGHT AS WELL JOIN THEM.

WATCH HER OUT-OF-BODY

WAKEUP CALL.

AN EVIL PRESENCE ENTERED

INTO THE ROOM, AND I SAW MY

SPIRIT START TO LEAVE MY

BODY.

ALCOHOLIC

*

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

MAN, IT IS THE WORST WEATHER

IN DECADES, AND ANOTHER

ABOMINABLE SNOWSTORM

CONTINUES TO ROLL ON THROUGH

THE NORTH.

100MILLION AMERICANS WOKE UP

TODAY TO SNOW, ICE, AND

FREEZING RAIN.

IN WHAT COULD BE THE WORST

STORM OF THIS ENDLESS

WINTER.

TERRY?

Terry: THE LATEST ROUND

OF WINTER WEATHER HAS

CLAIMED THE LIVES OF AT

LEAST A DOZEN PEOPLE ACROSS

THE SOUTH, AND LEFT ALMOST

HALF A MILLION HOMES WITHOUT

POWER.

WE HAVE TWO REPORTS FROM CBN

NEWS, STARTING WITH CHARLENE

ISRAEL.

Reporter: WICKED WINTER

WEATHER IS BRINGING ANOTHER

DAY OF COMPLICATED TRAVEL.

THURSDAY BEGINS WITH MORE

THAN 4,000 FLIGHTS

CANCELLED, LEAVING ABOUT

FIVE MILLION PASSENGERS

STRANDED NATIONWIDE.

I WAS ANTICIPATING GOING

HOME ON THURSDAY, AND I HAVE

PLANS FOR FRIDAY, BUT THAT'S

NOW GOING TO BE CANCELLED.

Reporter: THE POWERFUL

SYSTEM WILL DUMP SNOW FROM

PHILADELPHIA AND WASHINGTON

UP TO NEW YORK AND IN

THROUGH NEW ENGLAND.

SCHOOLS UP AND DOWN THE EAST

COAST HAVE BEEN CLOSED.

I'M PLAYED OUT WITH THE

SNOW.

IT IS MAKING MY JOB TWICE AS

HARD.

Reporter: THIS WINTER

STORM SOCKED THE SOUTH

WEDNESDAY, AND MAY BE TO

BLAME FOR AT LEAST 12

DEATHS.

THREE PEOPLE WERE KILLED

WHEN AN AMBULANCE CRASHED ON

AN ICY ROAD IN WEST TEXAS

AND CAUGHT FIRE.

A DALLAS FIREFIGHTER WAS

ALSO KILLED AFTER BEING

KNOCKED FROM AN INTERSTATE

RAMP AND FALLING 50 FEET.

IN RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA,

PEOPLE ABANDONED THEIR CARS

ON FROZEN ROADS, AND MANY

RAN FOR COVER AFTER ONE

TRAPPED CAR CAUGHT FIRE.

DON'T PUT YOUR STUPID HAT

ON AT THIS POINT IN TIME.

PROTECT YOURSELF, PROTECT

YOUR FAMILY, PROTECT YOUR

NEIGHBORS, LET'S PROTECT

EACH OTHER.

Reporter: HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF HOMES AND

BUSINESSES HAVE LOST POWER

IN THE CAROLINAS AND

GEORGIA, WHERE ICE AND WIND

GUSTS SNAPPED POWER LINES

AND TREE LIMBS.

THE ROOF OF ONE NORTH

CAROLINA CHURCH COLLAPSED.

IN GEORGIA, THIS WOMAN'S

DAUGHTER WAS NEARLY CRUSHED

WHEN A PINE TREE FELL ON HER

HOME.

HEARING A TREE CRACK AND

WATCHING IT FALL FROM MY

WINDOW AND WATCHING IT FALL

ON MY DAUGHTER'S ROOM WAS

VERY TRAUMATIC.

Reporter: THIS IS DAVID

BRODY IN VERY SNOWY,

WASHINGTON, D.C.

TODAY IT IS MORE LIKE

WEATHER DYSFUNCTION.

THIS CITY IS PRETTY MUCH

SHUT DOWN.

SURE, THERE ARE A FEW

STRAGGLERS AROUND, BUT THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS

CLOSED, AND RUNWAYS HAVE

BEEN SHUT DOWN.

HUNDREDS OF AIRLINES HAVE

DELAYED OR CANCELLED

FLIGHTS.

SOME TRAINS ARE RUNNING, NOT

MANY, THOUGH.

THIS PLACE IS SOMEWHAT OF A

GHOST TOWN, REALLY A SNOW

TOWN.

EXCEPT WE DID FIND

SOMEONE -- GET READY FOR

THIS -- DELIVERING THE

MAIL.

RAIN, SLEET OR SNOW --

THAT'S RIGHT.

WE HAVE TO BE HERE.

WE'RE VERY ESSENTIAL.

Reporter: EVEN

OVERNIGHT THEY'RE DELIVERING

MAIL.

AND THERE ARE A FEW PEOPLE

WHO ARE TRYING TO GET TO

WORK TODAY IN WASHINGTON.

WE CAUGHT UP WITH THEM.

MY OFFICE IS TWO BLOCKS

AWAY.

I THINK I'LL BE THE ONLY ONE

IN OUR NATIONAL OFFICE FOR

THE FIRM THAT I WORK WITH.

BOTH THE GOVERNORS OF

VIRGINIA AND MARYLAND HAVE

DECLARED STATES OF

EMERGENCY.

THERE IS MORE THAN A FOOT OF

SNOW AROUND.

THEY SAY NOT MUCH GETS DONE

IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

POLITICALLY, WELL, TODAY

THAT'S FOR SURE.

DAVID BRODY IN SNOWY,

WASHINGTON, D.C.

Pat: WE CAN ALL BREATHE

A SIGH OF RELIEF, THE

GOVERNMENT IS SHUT DOWN.

YOU WISH THEY WOULD DO MORE

OF IT.

ANYHOW, WASHINGTON MAY BE

SHUT DOWN FOR NOW, BUT THE

ADMINISTRATION'S POLITICAL

CRISIS OVER OBAMACARE IS FAR

FROM OVER.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

AGAIN FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PAT, THE

WHITEHOUSE SAYS ABOUT THREE

AND A THIRD MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE SIGNED UP FOR OBAMACARE

SO FAR.

MORE THAN A MILLION SHORT OF

THE ADMINISTRATION'S GOAL.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS TARGETING

YOUNGER PEOPLE TO SIGN UP,

INCLUDING THE SO-CALLED

YOUNG, INVINCIBLES, WHO

REFUSE TO BUY HEALTH

INSURANCE BECAUSE THEY THINK

THEY WON'T GET SICK.

BUT THE ADMINISTRATION NEEDS

THEM TO HELP PAY FOR

OBAMACARE.

THE ADMINISTRATION IS FAR

FROM REACHING THAT

DEMOGRAPHIC GOAL.

Reporter: THE NEW

HEALTH CARE LAW IS

EXPERIENCING SLOWER THAN

EXPECTED ENROLLMENT.

YOUNG INVINCIBLES OR ADULTS,

AGES 18 TO 24, AND THEY DO

NOT APPEAR TO BE ON BOARD

WITH OBAMACARE.

IN PREVIOUS DATA, YOUNG

PEOPLE MADE UP ONLY ABOUT

ONE FOURTH OF THOSE WHO HAD

SIGNED UP FOR THE HEALTH

CARE EXCHANGES.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS

DOWNPLAYED THE LAG, SAYING

THEY'RE EXPECTING

INVINCIBLES TO ENROLL

TOWARDS THE END OF THE

SIX-MONTH SIGNUP PERIOD, BUT

THERE IS A NEW SENSE OF

URGENCY.

President Obama:

TONIGHT I ASK EVERY AMERICAN

WHO KNOWS SOMEONE WITHOUT

HEALTH INSURANCE, TO HELP

THEM GET COVERED BY MARCH

31st.

Reporter: ABOUT 40% OF

NEW ENROLLEES HAVE TO 24 OR

YOUNGER TO COVER THE OLDER.

IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE FOR

THEM.

ON AVERAGE, WE'RE SEEING

PREMIUMS WILL INCREASE 169%

ACROSS THE BOARD.

YOUNG PEOPLE REALIZE

OBAMACARE IS TAKING THE

YOUNG AND HEALTHY TO PAY FOR

THE SICK AND OLDER

AMERICANS.

IT IS JUST NOT SOMETHING

THAT IS FAIR.

WE'RE LEVERAGING OUR

FUTURE.

Reporter: AS THE WHITE

HOUSE WAITS FOR MORE YOUNG

PEOPLE TO ENROLL, GRASSROOTS

EFFORTS, PUSHING PEOPLE TO

SIGN UP FOR THE PRESIDENT'S

HEALTH CARE PLAN, ARE

POPPING UP.

WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE IT

FEEL URGENT ALL OF THE

TIME.

AT LEAST IN OUR EXPERIENCE,

ENROLLMENT HAS PICKED UP A

LOT SINCE JANUARY 1st.

Reporter: WORKERS AND

VOLUNTEERS ARE TARGETING THE

SO-CALLED YOUNG, INVINCIBLES

BY SPREADING OUT ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

LEARNED IN THE PAST TWO

DECADES.

ANYBODY HAVE ANY

QUESTIONS ABOUT HEALTH

INSURANCE?

Reporter: BUT SO FAR

THEY'RE STILL SHORT ABOUT A

THIRD OF YOUNG AND HEALTHY

ENROLLEES THAT THEY NEED.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: PAT, IT IS NO

WONDER THE ADMINISTRATION

SEES THEM AS A GOLD MINE.

ONE ESTIMATES SAYS THERE ARE

19 MILLION YOUNG

INVINCIBLES.

Pat: HERE IS THE DIRTY

LITTLE SECRET, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, YOU HAVE TO

REALIZE IF A BUSINESS HAS

EMPLOYEES, THEY HAVE TO

COVER THEM AND COVER THEM

THE WAY OBAMA THINKS THEY

SHOULD.

THIS IS GOING TO COST EACH

EMPLOYEE MAYBE $12,000 A

YEAR.

SO THEY SAY, OKAY, UNDER

THIS LAW, IF YOU DON'T COVER

YOUR EMPLOYEES, YOU PAY A

FINE.

WHAT'S THE FINE?

A COUPLE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

SO YOU SAVE $10,000 IF YOU

DON'T COVER YOUR EMPLOYEES.

SO THAT PUSHES ALL OF THE

EMPLOYEES INTO ONE OF THESE

PLANS.

AND THE PLANS ARE

DELIBERATELY SET UP TO FAIL

BECAUSE WITHOUT AN ADEQUATE

NUMBER OF YOUNG, HEALTHY

PEOPLE, THE MAJORITY OF THE

ENROLLEES ARE GOING TO BE

SICKER, OLDER PEOPLE.

AND ACTUARY -- THAT IS NOT

GOING TO WORK.

AND SOMEBODY WILL STAND UP

AND SAY THIS IS THE FAILURE

OF THE PRIVATE INSURANCE.

AND IF THE PRIVATE SECTOR

WAS ONLY DOING ITS PART,

EVERYTHING WOULD BE FINE.

AND WHAT WE NEED IS A SINGLE

FARE PLAN.

AND WE'LL HAVE ONE PAYER,

AND THAT PAYER WILL BE THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

THAT'S THE GAME, TO FORCE

EVERYBODY INTO THE CORRAL

OWNED BY OBAMA AND HIS

CRONIES.

NOW, JUST MAKE NO MISTAKE

ABOUT IT.

THAT'S WHERE THEY'RE GOING.

THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE, BEHIND

THE SCENES, TELLING

EVERYBODY.

BUT THIS THING IS HORRIBLE.

IN TRUTH, THEY HAD

30 MILLION UNINSURED GOING

IN, AND WHEN IT IS ALL

FINISHED, THEY'LL HAVE

30 MILLION UNINSURED.

AND I BELIEVE SOMEBODY SAID

THE OTHER DAY, THEY HAVE

DISRUPTED THE ENTIRE HEALTH

CARE SYSTEM OF AMERICA FOR

NOTHING.

THE ONLY REASON IS TO GET

SOCIALIST CONTROL OVER

ONE-SIXTH OF THE ECONOMY.

THAT'S THE GAME.

THAT'S THE GAME.

AND, FOLKS, YOU'RE JUST A

PAWN IN THEIR HAND.

SO YOU OUGHT TO STAND UP AND

SAY SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

IT IS TERRIBLE WHAT THEY ARE

DOING TO YOU AND TO THE

AMERICAN ECONOMY.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT,

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

REPEATEDLY MADE CHANGES BY

HISMS T HIMSELF WHEN IT HAS

RUN INTO PROBLEMS, AND THE

PUBLIC DOESN'T LIKE IT.

60% SAY THEY DISAPPROVE OF

THE PRESIDENT GOING AROUND

CONGRESS.

THE PRESIDENT HAS OFTEN SAID

HE WILL TAKE ACTION WHEN

NECESSARY, WITH OR WITHOUT

CONGRESS.

AND TURNING OVERSEAS,

RADICAL MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN

SPREADING A CAMPAIGN OF

VIOLENCE AGAINST THE

GOVERNMENT OF EGYPT.

SUSPECTED TERRORISTS BLEW UP

A KEY GAS PIPELINE IN

EGYPT'S SINAI PENINSULA

EARLIER THIS WEEK.

GEORGE THOMAS REPORTS ON

WHAT MANY FEAR IS A SEARING

INSURGENCY.

George: NEARLY 17,000

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD MEMBERS

AND OTHER POLITICAL

ACTIVISTS HAVE BEEN

IMPRISONED.

THE MILITARY HERE INSISTS

THEY ARE IN A WAR FOR

SURVIVAL AGAINST

TERRORISTS.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO

TAKE ALL NECESSARY

PRECAUTIONS, IN ORDER TO

FINISH ANY ACTIVITIES OF THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

George: BUT SOME ARE

ACCUSING THE MILITARY OF

OPPRESSIVE TACTICS IN

RETALLATIO RETALIATION

AGAINST MORSI'S DETRACTORS.

George: THE POTENTIAL

FOR RENEWED VIOLENCE STILL

LOOMS VERY LARGE, AND NOW

THERE IS A GROWING

INSURGENCY IN THE SINAI

PENINSULA, WITH FREQUENT

ATTACKS AGAINST SECURITY

PERSONNEL.

MORE THAN 200 SECURITY

FORCES HAVE BEEN KILLED

SINCE LAST YEAR, MANY OF

THEM BY AN

AL-QAEDA-INSPIRED GROUP,

THE NAME IS ARABIC FOR THE

CHAMPIONS OF JERUSALEM.

THEY HAVE ALSO STAGED A

SERIES OF BOMBINGS AND

SUICIDE ATTACKS ON SECURITY

FORCES IN RECENT MONTHS.úsús

EGYPT, WHICH HAS BRANDED THE

BROTHERHOOD A TERRORIST

GROUP, HAS ACCUSED ITS

FORMER LEADER OF CREATING A

MILITARY WING TO ATTACK

SECURITY PERSONNEL.

AS LONG AS ATLANTA'S

ELEMENTS OF THE BROTHERHOOD

OPENS THE DOOR TO UVIOLENCE,

USE VIOLENCE, AND IT COULD

EVENTUALLY TURN US INTO A

POLICE STATE.

George: THE GOVERNMENT

THIS WEEK ORDERED ALL

MOSQUES TO DELIVER THE SAME

MESSAGE, WHICH MUST BE

APPROVED BY AUTHORITIES

AHEAD OF TIME.

MUSLIM PREACHERS WHO DISOBEY

THE ORDER WILL BE REPLACED.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

CAIRO, EGYPT.

HERE AT HOME, THE F.B.I.

DOESN'T EXPECT TERRORISM ON

A SNIPER ATTACK ON A

CALIFORNIA POWER GRID LAST

APRIL.

THEY ARE STILL INVESTIGATING

THE MILITARY-STYLE RAID,

WHICH KNOCKED OUT 17

TRANSFORMERS.

THERE ARE STILL NO SUSPECTS

OR MOTIVE.

BUT NOT EVERYONE AGREES WITH

THE F.B.I.'S CONCLUSION,

RULING OUT TERRORISM.

ACCORDING TO FOREIGN POLICY

MAGAZINE, ONE FORMER PG&E

EXECUTIVE BELIEVES IT WAS A

DRESS REHEARSAL FOR FUTURE

ATTACKS.

HE SAYS THE SOPHISTICATED

ATTACK IS A WAKEUP CALL

ABOUT THE THREATS TO CRUCIAL

INFRASTRUCTURE.

PAT, THAT'S A PRETTY SOMBER

WARNING THERE.

Pat: WELL, HE IS

TELLING THE TRUTH.

WE'RE GOING TO DO A DETAILED

ANALYSIS.

I'VE ASKED OUR NEWS

DEPARTMENT TO GET ON THE

SCENE AND FIND OUT.

BUT IF ALL YOU HAVE GOT IS A

CHAIN-LINKED FENCE, AND

BEHIND THE FENCE ARE

TRANSFORMERS, ANY

HIGH-POWERED RIFLE CAN PUNCH

HOLES IN THE TRANSFORMERS.

THEN THEY LEAK VITAL FLUID

AND THEY SHORT, AND THEY

HAVE TO BE TAKEN OFF THE AIR

OR THEY BLOW THE PLACE UP.

AND THEY'RE VERY, VERY

VULNERABLE.

AND WE'RE LOOKING AT THE

POWER GRID OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

WE MUST HAVE ELECTRIC

POWER.

THINK WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR

ELECTRICITY GOES OUT.

YOU JUST BLOW A FUSE, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU HAVE NO

LIGHTS.

YOUR TOASTER DOESN'T WORK,

YOUR MICROWAVE DOESN'T

WORK.

WHATEVER IT IS YOU'RE USED

TO USING, YOU CAN'T USE.

THINK ABOUT THAT ALL THE WAY

THROUGH THE ECONOMY.

AND THESE POWER STATIONS ARE

VITAL.

IF THEY GO DOWN AND THE

STREET LIGHTS GO OUT, THERE

IS CHAOS, PANDEMONIUM.

IT IS A MAJOR RECIPE FOR

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND

REVOLUTION, AND WE DON'T

NEED THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING

ABOUT THE VULNERABILITY OF

THE POWER GRID.

ANYHOW, THAT'S THE WAY WE

ARE LOOKING AT IT.

AND THIS SITUATION IN

CALIFORNIA, THEY SAY, I WAS

CLEARLY A SOPHISTICATED

ATTACK.

IT WASN'T JUST A BUNCH OF

KIDS SHOOTING OFF GUNS IN

THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

THIS WAS SOPHISTICATED.

THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHERE THE

KEY ACCESS POINTS WERE.

THEY KNEW WHERE THE POINTS

WERE WHERE THEY COULD SHUT

OFF NECESSARY ALARMS.

THEY HAD IT ALL UNDER

CONTROL.

AND WHAT THAT EXECUTIVE

SAID, I CONCUR.

IT LOOKED LIKE A DRESS

REHEARSAL FOR A BIG ONE.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT,

SPEAKINGING OF POWER,

SCIENTISTS SAY THEY HAVE

TAKEN A KEY STEP TOWARDS

HARNESSING NUCLEAR FUSION AS

A NEW WAY TO GENERATE

POWER.

ALTHOUGH THEY'RE STILL A

LONG WAY FROM A WORKABLE

FUSION POWER SYSTEM.

THE BREAKTHROUGH INVOLVES

USING LASERS THAT STARTED

THE NUCLEAR REACTION.

NUCLEAR FUSION IS WHAT

POWERS THE SUN.

IT WOULD HAVE SEVERAL

ADVANTAGES OVER TODAY'S

POWER SOURCES, INCLUDING

PRODUCING A CLEANER AND

CHEAPER SOURCE OF ENERGY.

PAT, IT LOOKS LIKE THAT

HOLDS A LOT OF PROMISE.

Pat: I'VE BEEN LOOKING

INTO THAT, AND NUCLEAR

INFUSION IS THE ANSWER.

AND THE PROJECT IN CHICAGO

SAID THE REASON WE GOT INTO

THIS IS BECAUSE ONE DAY

THERE MIGHT BE NUCLEAR

INFUSION, AND IT WOULD BE

THE POWER SOURCE FOF THE

WORLD.

IT WOULD BE CHEAP AND

POWERFUL.

IT WOULDN'T BE SOMETHING

THAT WAS RATIONED.

IT WOULDN'T DEPEND ON FOSSEL

FUEL.

IT WOULDN'T POLLUTE THE

ENVIRONMENT.

IT IS LIKE A DREAM COME

TRUE.

LET'S HOPE THEY'RE

SUCCESSFUL.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

MOMENT OF TRUTH FOR A COUPLE

IN CRISIS.

I JUST REALLY HAD A

COMPULSION TO USE THE WORD

"FAIL."

I RAISED TWO HANDS SAYING

GUILTY, CHEERFULLY GUILTY.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

HUSBAND AND WIFE REKINDLED

THEIR MARRIAGE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

TOMORROW IS VALENTINE'S

DAY.

SO WHAT ARE YOU GETTING FOR

VALENTINE'S DAY?

NOTHING?

Terry: I'M NOT A BIG

VALENTINE'S DAY PERSON.

THAT MAY SOUND WEIRD,

BUT --

Pat: NO.

I THINK YOU'RE BEING VERY

WISE.

I WASN'T EITHER, BUT IT IS

BEING IMPOSED UPON ME BY

SOCIETY.

Terry: AND YOUR

HOUSEHOLD?

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: YOU HAVE TO DO

SOMETHING OR YOU'RE

CONSIDERED WEIRD.

Terry: YOU DON'T LOVE

ME.

Pat: YOU DON'T LOVE

ME.

HOW COME YOU DIDN'T GIVE ME

A VERMONT TEDDY BEAR?

Terry: I WANT A FOUR

FOOT ONE OF THOSE.

Pat: I CAN HARDLY

WAIT.

WELL, WHEN A WIFE SAYS TO

HER HUSBAND, THOUGH, YOU

FAILED ME, SOMETIMES THAT'S

THE DEATH TOLL OF A

MARRIAGE.

BUT NOT FOR THE COUPLE

YOU'RE ABOUT TO MEET.

THOSE WORDS HELPED THEM

REKINDLE THEIR ROMANCE IN A

WAY THEY NEVER THOUGHT

POSSIBLE.

PAUL STRAND HAS THIS UNIQUE

LOVE STORY.

Reporter: MEN, IF YOU

WANT TO DO SOMETHING

ROMANTIC FOR YOUR WIFE, YOU

MIGHT CONSIDER RAMPING UP

YOUR SPIRITUAL INTIMACY.

THAT'S WHAT SAM AND VICKI

HAVE FOUND LACKING AFTER

ALMOST FOUR DECADES OF

MARRIAGE.

WHEN THEY HIT A ROUGH PATCH,

WHEN VICKI NEEDED SAM TO

PRAY WITH HIM MORE, SHE HIT

HIM WITH THE TRUTH ABOUT

THEIR SPIRITUAL LIFE.

HE REMEMBERS WHAT SHE SAID.

I HAVE COME TO THE

REALIZATION YOU HAVE FAILED

ME.

I KNEW IT WAS PROBABLY

THE HOLY SPIRIT DOING IT.

I HAD A COMPULSION TO USE

THE WORD "FAIL."

Reporter: THEY JUST

FACED TRIALS INVOLVING TWO

OF THEIR DAUGHTERS, BUT

RARELY PRAYED ABOUT THEM.

VICKI FELT SPIRITUALLY

WRONG.

AND SHE SAID,

FURTHERMORE, BESIDES THE

GIRLS, SAM, I NEED TO

CONNECT WITH YOU MORE

SPIRITUALLY.

I RAISED TWO HANDS SAYING,

GUILTY.

CHEERFULLY GUILTY.

AND I RAISED ONE HAND

SAYING, VICKI, I VOW, I

PROMISE WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

TOGETHER.

Reporter: AT THAT

MOMENT, GOD GAVE SAM A

REVELATION.

THE HOLY SPIRIT JUST

SPOKE TO ME IN A VERY

SPECIFIC WAY.

THE REVELATION WAS GOD GAVE

ME A PATH.

AND THE PATH WAS SIMPLY

THIS: PRAY WITH HER, USING

MY WORD AS YOUR GUIDE.

WHEN HE STARTED LAYING

THOSE TRACKS AND SAID, THIS

IS WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO

AND HOW WE'RE GOING TO DO

IT, I SAID THIS IS

DIFFERENT.

Reporter: THEY BEGAN

READING A FEW SCRIPTURES

ALMOST EVERY DAY TO GUIDE

THEIR PRAYERS TOGETHER.

SAM AND VICKI SAY IT HAS

TREMENDOUSLY IMPROVED THEIR

SPIRITUAL LIFE AND BROUGHT

GOD RIGHT INTO THE CENTER OF

THEIR COMMUNICATION.

I FEEL LIKE WE'RE PRAYING

ON THE BULL'S EYE, THE

MOVING TARGETS OF LIFE.

THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS SHOWING

US WHAT TO PRAY.

NOW THE PRAYERS ARE AS FRESH

AS THE FLOW OF THE WORD OF

GOD ITSELF.

Reporter: IN HIS OWN

MINISTRY, SAM FOUND THE

HUNDREDS OF CHRISTIAN MEN HE

INTERACTED WITH FOUND THEY

WERE ALSO FAILING TO PRAY

REGULARLY WITH THEIR WIVES.

HE WRITES ABOUT IT IN HIS

BOOK "JUST SAY THE WORD,"

AND HE AND VICKI HAVE SET UP

A WEBSITE TO HELP.

CLEARLY THERE IS AN

EPIDEMIC BURDEN WE'RE

SHOULDERS.

SOMMOST OF US LIVE WITH

SOME LEVEL OF GUILT THAT

WE'RE NOT QUITE CUTTING IT

IN OUR MARRIAGE AND HOME,

ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF

SPIRITUAL WORSHIP WITH OUR

WIVES.

HARDLY EVER, WHEN NEEDED,

NOT ENOUGH ARE THE WORDS.

Reporter: AND HE ASKED

THESE SAME MEN WHAT THEIR

WIVES WOULD SAY IF THEY

PLEDGED TO REGULARLY PRAY

TOGETHER.

SHE WAS SAY HALLELUJAH.

SHE WOULD START CRYING.

Reporter: WE KNOW OUR

WIVES DESIRE THIS SPIRITUAL

INTIMACY.

MEN OFTEN NEED A PATH TO

FOLLOW.

THAT'S THE PURPOSE OF "JUST

SAY THE WORD."

IT IS A JOURNEY OF SPIRITUAL

INTIMACY IN MARRIAGE.

WITH MARRIAGE UNDER ATTACK

AND MARRIAGES FALLING APART,

IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP AND

JUST SAY THE WORD.

IF YOU'LL TAKE THIS 30-DAY

PLAN AND PRAY THROUGH

PHILLIPIANS, YOU'RE GOING TO

CATCH A MODEL.

Reporter: SAM SAYS HIS

AND VICKI'S RELATIONSHIP

ENJOYED AN ADDED BENEFIT.

AND VICKI SAYS IT HAS GIVEN

HER TREMENDOUS PEACE.

MY HUSBAND IS REALLY IN

THE GAME WITH ME AS FAR AS

PRAYER BURDEN FOR OUR

CHILDREN, FOR OUR FAMILY,

FOR OUR MINISTRY.

WE REALLY ARE ONE WITH

THIS.

I'LL TELL YOU, IT BECAME

A GAME-CHANGER.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: GOOD FOR YOU.

I'VE GOT A COPY OF THIS

BOOK.

IT IS CALLED "JUST SAY THE

WORD."

I WAS TOLD THAT THE GUYS AND

OUR PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT

SAID, WE ALL WANT IT.

Terry: THAT'S GOOD.

Pat: IT IS GOOD.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN GET

IT THROUGH US OR THROUGH

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

Terry: GO TO

CBN.COM.

Pat: YOU SURE?

Terry: ALWAYS.

Pat: AMAZON HAS

EVERYTHING.

EVERYTHING.

SO "JUST SAY THE WORD."

Terry: I LIKE THAT.

Pat: SAM INGRACIA.

THE BOOK LOOKS VERY GOOD.

MAYBE IT WILL HELP YOUR

MARRIAGE.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT FOR

VALENTINE'S DAY.

Terry: THAT'S A GOOD

VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT.

Pat: OKAY.

THERE YOU GO.

YOU WON'T HAVE TO BUY A

VERMONT TEDDY BEAR.

JUST BUY A LITTLE BOOK.

HERE IT IS.

Terry: COMING UP, A

WOMAN WHO GOT THE SCARE OF

HER LIFE.

THE ROOM JUST GOT VERY

QUIET, AND ALL THREE OF THE

WALLS STARTED TO TURN

BLACK.

AND AN EVIL PRESENCE ENTERED

INTO THE ROOM.

AND I SAW MY SPIRIT START TO

LEAVE MY BODY.

Terry: HEAR WHAT WORDS

SHE SCREAMED AND WATCH HOW

SHE WAS RESCUED, AFTER

THIS.

Pat: WELL, SOME YEARS

AGO THEY WERE CALLED

HIPPIES, AND THEY LIVED IN

WHAT WERE CALLED COMMUNES,

AND THEY HAD SEX, THEY HAD

DRUGS, AND EVERYTHING WAS

SHARED IN COMMON.

WELL, GABRIELLE GREW UP IN

JUST SUCH A COMMUNE.

SHE NEVER KNEW WHICH ONE OF

HER MOTHER'S LOVERS WAS HER

FATHER.

WHAT SHE DID KNOW WAS A DARK

DEPRESSION AT A VERY YOUNG

AGE.

AND THAT DARKNESS

OVERWHELMED HER UNTIL THE

DAY A DEMON CAME CALLING.

THE HIPPIE MOVEMENT OF

THE 1950s WAS SUPPOSED TO

BE ABOUT PEACE, LOVE, AND

HARMONY.

BUT THROUGH THE EYES OF

GABRIELLE WHEELER, IT WAS

ABOUT NEGLECT, ABANDONMENT,

AND SELF-DESTRUCTION.

I WAS VERY SEPARATED FROM

MY MOM.

I DIDN'T HAVE A BOND WITH

HER.

SO IT WAS VERY, VERY

INTERESTING.

IT WAS KIND OF LIKE GROWING

UP WITH A STRANGER.

Reporter: GABRIELLE

GREW UP IN A COMMUNE IN LOS

CRUZAS, NEW MEXICO.

SHE WAS OFTEN LEFT ALONE TO

PLAY WITH MARIJUANA AND

ROLLING PAPERS, WHILE HER

MOM READ TAROT CARDS AND DID

DRUGS.

THERE WERE MANY MEN IN HER

MOTHER'S LIFE, AND GABRIELLE

DIDN'T KNOW WHICH ONE MIGHT

BE HER FATHER.

EVENTUALLY HER MOM MARRIED,

BUT HE BEAT THEM.

HER MOM LEFT HIM FOR SOMEONE

WHO BEAT THEM EVEN MORE.

I REMEMBER BEING

DEPRESSED SINCE I WAS

YOUNG.

EVEN AT THE AGE OF NINE OR

10, JUST NOT WANTING TO LIVE

ANYMORE BECAUSE I JUST FELT

LIKE THERE WAS A LOT OF

DARKNESS IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: GABRIELLE

SAYS THERE WAS A LIGHT IN

THE NIGHTMARISH EXISTENCE.

IT CAME ON SUNDAYS, WHEN

SOME PEOPLE GAVE HER RIDES

TO CHURCH.

THE FIRST BIBLE STORY

THAT I EVER HEARD WAS THE

STORY ABOUT JOB.

THEY SAID HE WAS A MAN OF

MANY AFFLICTIONS, BUT IN THE

END HOW GOD HAD BLESSED HIS

LIFE.

AND I REMEMBER SAYING, YOU

KNOW WHAT, GOD, MAYBE MY

LIFE WILL BE HARD WHEN I'M

YOUNG, BUT IF YOU CAN MAKE

IT BETTER WHEN I'M OLDER --

I REMEMBER PRAYING THAT

PRAYER.

Reporter: GABRIELLE

BELIEVED HER ONLY CHANCE WAS

TO GET AWAY.

AT 14, SHE TOLD HER MOTHER

SHE WANTED TO MOVE TO

CALIFORNIA AND LIVE WITH

SOME RELATIVES.

HER MOM GAVE LITTLE

RESISTANCE.

I WAS SO DETERMINED NOT

TO BE LIKE MY MOM.

I WAS SO DETERMINED TO BE

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

AND I SAID I WAS NEVER GOING

TO LET A MAN BEAT ME.

I WAS NEVER GOING TO DO

DRUGS, LIKE MY MOM OR

ANYBODY.

I WAS GOING TO BE A GOOD

GIRL.

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

BE.

Reporter: BUT ESCAPING

THE INFLUENCES OF HER PAST

WASN'T SO EASY, AS SHE

LEARNED WHEN SHE STARTED

GOING TO CHURCH WITH

NEIGHBORS.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO WITH ME BECAUSE I HAD A

CRUSH ON ALL OF MY YOUTH

PASTORS.

I WAS JUST A MESS.

ONE DAY I WALKED INTO THE

CHURCH, AND IT WAS LIKE THE

DEVIL JUST SPOKE TO ME.

LIKE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING

HERE?

YOU DON'T BELONG HERE.

THEY HAVE TWO PARENTS AND

YOU COME FROM THIS BROKEN

HOME.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

I LOOKED AROUND AND I

REALIZED, YOU KNOW WHAT,

YOU'RE RIGHT.

WHAT AM I DOING HERE?

I DON'T BELONG HERE.

Reporter: GABRIELLE

STOPPED GOING TO CHURCH.

THEN AT 18, SHE MOVED OUT ON

HER OWN.

ONE DAY, WHILE DRIVING

THROUGH MEXICO, SHE LOOKED

UP A MAN SHE WAS TOLD WAS

HER DAD.

HE COULDN'T GIVE HER THE

ANSWERS SHE HOPED FOR.

SHE SAID YOUR MOM WAS

VERY PROMISCUOUS, SO I DON'T

KNOW IF YOU ARE MINE.

AND HE MIGHT AS WELL JUST

STAMPED ME WITH THE WORD

"REJECTION."

AND THEN I SAID, IF I CAN'T

BEAT THEM, I MIGHT AS WELL

JOIN THEM.

Reporter: FROM THAT

POINT ON, GABRIELLE DID

EVERYTHING SHE SWORE SHE

WOULD NEVER DO, WHICH

INCLUDED HAVING AN ABUSIVE

BOYFRIEND.

EXACTLY LIKE MY MOTHER,

AND WORSE.

I WAS HOMELESS FOR A YEAR.

I JUST HITCHHIKED UP AND

DOWN THE COAST OF

CALIFORNIA.

AND I FINALLY ENDED UP AT

THE HAIGHT-ASHBURY.

Reporter: THERE,

GABRIELLE SAYS HE WAS

CONSTANTLY REMINDED OF GOD.

AND I REMEMBER AT

HAIGHT-ASHBURY, THERE WOULD

BE THESE PEOPLE WHO WOULD

COME AND WITNESS TO US, BUT

I WOULD ACTUALLY LAUGH AT

THEM.

Reporter: ONE DAY AFTER

TAKING SEVERAL DRUGS, SHE

STARTED TO LOSE

CONSCIOUSNESS.

I KNEW GOD WAS SPEAKING

TO MY HEART, THAT I NEEDED

TO TURN MY LIFE AROUND AND

GIVE IT TO HIM.

THAT DAY I HAD DONE

DIFFERENT DRUGS JUST TO NUMB

THE PAIN.

AND THEN THE ROOM JUST GOT

VERY QUIET, AND THEN THREE

OF THE WALLS STARTED TO TURN

BLACK.

AND AN EVIL PRESENCE ENTERED

INTO THE ROOM.

AND I SAW MY SPIRIT START TO

LEAVE MY BODY.

I SCREAMED OUT, JESUS, SAVE

ME.

AND MY SPIRIT SNAPPED BACK

INTO MY BODY.

Reporter: TERRIFIED BY

THE EXPERIENCE, GABRIELLE

CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT

HELL WAS REAL, AND SO WAS

JESUS.

THE ONLY PEOPLE SHE KNEW

COULD HELP HER WERE THE

NEIGHBORS SHE WENT TO CHURCH

WITH WHEN SHE WAS A

TEENAGER.

AND THEY SAID, WELL, WHAT

DO YOU WANT US TO DO FOR

YOU?

I SAID, GET ME A BUS

TICKET.

I WANT TO COME BACK TO THE

CHURCH AND BACK TO GOD.

Reporter: GABRIELLE

MOVED IN WITH HER FRIENDS.

THEY CONVINCED HER TO

SURROUNDER HERSELF TO POLICE

FOR OUTSTANDING DRUG

POSSESSION CHARGES.

IN JAIL, SHE STARTED READING

THE BIBLE AND LEARNED WHAT

IT MEANT TO TRUST JESUS.

THE LORD DEALT WITH ME

WHEN I WAS IN JAIL, TALKED

TO ME WOULD YO ABOUT

SURRENDERING YOUR LIFE,

ABOUT MAKING HIM THE LORD OF

MY LIFE, AND COMPLETELY

TURNING OVER EVERYTHING TO

HIM.

Reporter: AFTER SERVING

A SHORT SENTENCE, GABRIELLE

WENT INTO TEEN CHALLENGE.

IT WAS THERE THAT SHE

LEARNED HOW TO LET GO OF ALL

OF THE PAIN AND REJECTION.

THERE WAS A NIGHT WHEN

GOD SPOKE TO ME.

AND HE SAID, YOU NEED TO

FORGIVE YOUR MOTHER.

WHEN HE DID THAT AND I

FORGAVE HER, A FLOOD OF

TEARS CAME OVER MY EYES, AND

I CRIED LIKE I HAD NEVER

CRIED IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: NO LONGER

HAUNTED BY HER PAST,

GABRIELLE SAYS HER LIFE IS

FULL.

SHE IS MARRIED TO JOHN, A

PASTOR, AND THEY HAVE FOUR

DAUGHTERS.

GABRIELLE REACHES OUT TO

YOUNG GIRLS IN CRISIS, WHO

ARE MUCH LIKE SHE WAS.

SHE HAS HOPE FOR THEM

BECAUSE OF WHAT GOD DID FOR

HER.

GOD HAS BECOME MY

FATHER.

AND HE HAS TAKEN CARE OF ME

AND HE HAS PROVIDED FOR ME.

TODAY I KNOW THAT GOD IS

REAL BECAUSE HE SAVED ME AS

I WAS DYING.

AND NO ONE CAN CONVINCE ME

OTHERWISE.

Pat: HE SAVED ME WHEN I

WAS DYING.

ISN'T IT AWFUL, WHAT WE DO

TO KIDS.

THE SO-CALLED HIPPIES, THEY

THINK THEY'RE FREE, AND LOOK

WHAT THEY'VE DONE TO THEIR

CHILD.

THAT'S WHAT FREE LOVE WILL

DO, FREE SEX.

WHO IS YOUR FATHER?

I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IS

YOUR FATHER.

I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE OF

THOSE MEN IS THE ONE WHO

CONCEIVED YOU.

I DON'T KNOW.

YOU'RE NOTHING.

YOU'RE WORTHLESS.

SO SHE THROWS HERSELF AWAY.

BUT GOD WAS THERE.

THAT'S WHAT IS SO

WONDERFUL.

GOD IS THERE FOR YOU.

SO WHEN YOUR MOTHER AND

FATHER CASTS YOU OUT, THE

LORD WILL TAKE YOU UP, IS

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

GOD LOVES YOU.

GOD IS YOUR FATHER.

MAN, WHAT A STORY.

WHAT CAN YOU SAY?

WHAT YOU CAN SAY IS, HOWEVER

RICH IT MAY BE, YOUR LIFE,

WHATEVER TORMENT YOU MAY

HAVE BEEN THROUGH, YOU MAY

HAVE BEEN RAPED, YOU MAY

HAVE BEEN BEATEN, YOU MAY

HAVE BEEN ABUSED, YOU MAY

HAVE BEEN REJECTED, YOU MAY

HAVE BEEN LOCKED UP IN A

CLOSET AS A LITTLE KID AND

LEFT ALONE TO CRY AND

SUFFER, YOU MAY HAVE HAD

SCALDING WATER POURED ON

YOU, YOU MAY HAVE BEEN

BEATEN SENSELESS, BUT I'LL

TELL YOU SOMETHING: GOD

ALMIGHTY LOVES YOU.

AND HE WILL REACH DOWN FROM

HIS PLACE IN HEAVEN AND PICK

YOU UP AND HUG YOU UNTI TO

HIS BOSSOM, TO HIS CHEST, TO

HIS HEART, AND YOU CAN BE

PART OF THE FAMILY OF GOD.

HE IS THE FATHER.

WHATEVER EARTHLY FATHER THAT

MAY HAVE REJECTED YOU, GOD

IS THE FATHER.

AND IF YOU WANT A FATHER WHO

LOVES YOU, YOU JUST HAVE TO

ASK AND YOU'LL RECEIVE, SEEK

AND YOU WILL FIND, KNOCK,

AND THE DOOR WILL BE OPEN.

PRAY WITH ME NOW.

IF YOU WANT A LOVING FATHER

TO TAKE AWAY THE PAIN OF

WHATEVER YOU'VE BEEN

THROUGH, PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU'VE DIED

FOR ME.

BUT, LORD, YOU HAVE SEEN

WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO ME.

YOU KNOW THE REJECTION, YOU

KNOW THE PAIN, THE

SUFFERING, YOU KNOW THE

BEATINGS, YOU KNOW THE

TERRIBLE THINGS THAT HAVE

BEEN DONE IN MY LIFE.

AND YOU KNOW THE THINGS THAT

I'VE DONE THAT ARE WRONG.

SO, LORD, RIGHT NOW I COME

TO YOU AND I CONFESS THAT

I'M A SINNER.

AND, LORD, I FORGIVE THOSE

WHO HAVE SINNED AGAINST ME.

I FORGIVE MY PARENTS.

I FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE

DAMAGED ME AND BEATEN ME AND

HURT ME.

AND, LORD, AT THIS MOMENT I

ASK THAT YOU WOULD COME INTO

MY HEART, LIVE YOUR LIFE IN

ME, AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON

I WILL LIVE FOR YOU AND I

WILL SERVE YOU.

THANK YOU, JESUS, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE

COME INTO MY HEART.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

I HAVE SOMETHING I WANT TO

GIVE YOU.

YOU SAY, WELL, WHAT DO I DO

NEXT?

THERE WAS A TIME -- IT WAS

AN AWESOME TIME THAT I WAS

IN THE AUDIO ROOM, AND I

BELIEVE GOD JUST POURED OUT

A MESSAGE.

AND IT'S ON THIS LITTLE

COMPACT DISC.

IT'S 73 MINUTES OF TEACHING

ABOUT THE EXCHANGED LIFE.

WHAT HAPPENED, WHAT DID GOD

DO FOR YOU?

YOU HAVE JUST COME TO HIM,

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE BORN

AGAIN?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE AN

EXCHANGED LIFE?

WHAT ABOUT THE SECOND

COMING?

WHAT ABOUT IF YOU SIN?

IT'S ALL HERE.

AND WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE BECAUSE IT WILL HELP

YOU.

CALL NOW.

SAY I PRAYED WITH PAT AND I

GAVE MY HEART TO THE LORD,

AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT

I AM FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE CALL.

THERE IS NO MONEY INVOLVED

WHATSOEVER.

IT IS ALL FREE.

THE GIFT OF LIFE THAT JESUS

GIVES YOU IS FREE, BUT IT

COST HIM HIS LIFE.

1-800-759-0700.

IT'S A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP.

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT

ON."

DIANA SAYS, "MY YOUNGEST

CHILD, 30 YEARS OLD, JUST

TOLD US HE IS TRANSGENDER, A

MALE TO FEMALE.

AS CHRISTIANS, HOW DO WE

HANDLE THIS SITUATION?"

PATS GOING TO TACKLE THAT

QUESTION AND MORE OF YOUR

E-MAILS, AND THAT'S STILL

AHEAD.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

ATTENDING CHURCH CUTS DOWN

ON CRIME.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO

RESEARCHERS AT MANCHESTER

UNIVERSITY.

THEY FOUND PEOPLE WHO ATTEND

CHUMP OCHURCH ON A REGULAR

BASIS ARE LESS LIKELY TO

COMMIT CRIMES.

THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DROPS

WERE SEEN IN SHOPLIFTING,

THE USE OF ILLEGAL DRUGS,

AND MUSIC PIRACY.

RESEARCHERS BELIEVE THAT

BESIDES TEACHING PEOPLE

MORALITY, BEING INVOLVED IN

CHURCH ALSO KEEPS THEM FROM

ENDING UP IN THE WRONG

CROWD.

THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA

SAYS ITS MEMBERSHIP FELL BY

6% LAST YEAR.

THEY VOTED LAST MAY TO LET

OPENLY GAY YOUNG PEOPLE

JOIN.

THAT CHANGE MADE MANY

VOLUNTEERS FROM CHURCHES

ANGRY.

THEY CONSIDER HOMOSEXUALITY

A SIN.

BUT THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST

ASSOCIATION DISAGREED WITH

THE MOVE, AND LEFT IT UP TO

INDIVIDUAL CHURCHES TO

DECIDE IF THEY WANT TO STAY

WITH THE SCOUTS.

SOME WHO LEFT WENT TO A

GROUP CALLED "TRAIL LIFE

U.S.A.," AN ORGANIZATION SET

UP BY CONSERVATIVES AND

CHRISTIAN GROUPS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, IT'S TIME

TO "BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

THIS FIRST ONE IS SENT IN BY

DIANA, WHO SAYS, "MY

YOUNGEST CHILD, 30 YEARS

OLD, JUST TOLD US THAT HE IS

TRANSGENDER, A MALE TO

FEMALE.

AS CHRISTIANS, HOW DO WE

HANDLE THIS?"

Pat: WELL, I THINK THE

FIRST THING YOU DO IS MAKE

SURE THAT THIS GUY KNOWS

WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT,

AND IT IS NOT JUST SOME

MOMENTARY FANTASY THAT HE IS

ENGAGED IN.

YOU SHOULD HAVE SOME TESTS

AND THINGS DONE JUST TO HELP

HIM BECAUSE THIS IS A PRETTY

PERMANENT DEAL.

THEY CUT OFF YOUR MALE

MEMBER, AND YOU CAN'T GET IT

BACK.

AND THEY GIVE YOU HORMONES

AND SO FORTH.

NOW, IF, INDEED, THIS IS A

TRUE SITUATION OF A WOMAN'S

FEELINGS AND HORMONAL

RESPONSES THAT ARE TRAPPED

IN A MALE'S BODY, AND THERE

ARE A FEW OF THOSE, I CAN'T

SEE ANYTHING SINFUL ABOUT

CHANGING IT.

I KNOW PEOPLE SAY, WELL,

THAT'S THE WAY GOD MADE

THEM.

WELL, SURE, BUT GOD COULD

HAVE DONE A LOT OF THINGS

THAT WE GET CORRECTIVE

SURGERY FOR.

I DON'T THINK IF SOMEBODY IS

A TRUE TRANSGENDER THAT WE

SHOULD CONDEMN THEM.

THAT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, I THINK

AS A LOVING PARENT, YOU

SHOULD COUNSEL THAT PERSON

AND SAY YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE

ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN YOU KNOW

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

THIS ISN'T JUST SOMETHING

BECAUSE YOU HAPPEN TO FIND

AN ATTRACTION SOME MAN SOME

PLACE AND YOU THINK YOU'RE A

FEMALE.

YOU BETTER CHECK THAT ONE

OUT PRETTY CAREFULLY.

BUT IN TERMS OF PARENTS --

THE GUY IS 30 YEARS OLD.

HE IS AN ADULT, MATURE

ADULT.

SO WHAT CAN YOU DO EXCEPT

LOVE HIM.

Terry: THIS IS CATHY

WHO SAYS, "MY SON FELL OFF A

ROOF AND HIT HIS HEAD WHEN

HE WAS 16.

HE SUFFERED FROM A TRAUMATIC

BRAIN INJURY, AND SINCE THEN

HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH

SCHIZOPHRENIA.

THE VOICE HE TELLS ME HE

HEARS SOUND VERY DEMONIC TO

ME, BUT DOCTORS SAY IT IS A

CHEMICAL IMBALANCE.

WE'RE REALLY NOT SURE IF IT

IS DEMONIC OR BRAIN DAMAGE.

CAN YOU PLEASE PRAY FOR HIS

HEALING?"

Pat: WE'LL GET PEOPLE

HERE PRAYING FOR HIM.

I REALLY THINK THE DOCTORS

ARE PROBABLY RIGHT ON THAT

ONE.

I THINK THERE IS A

NEUROLOGICAL IMBALANCE.

THEY SAY CHEMICAL, BUT I

DON'T KNOW.

YOU NEED A BLOOD SCREENING,

BLOOD TESTS TO SEE EXACTLY

WHAT IS GOING ON.

MAYBE YOU'LL FIND OUT

SOMETHING.

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT THAT DOESN'T SOUND

DEMONIC, JUST BECAUSE YOU

HIT YOUR HEAD.

Terry: THIS IS CHRISTY

WHO SAYS, "I'M CONFUSED

ABOUT HOW, QUOTE,"FIRST

FRUITS WORK," DO I HAVE TO

GIVE MY WHOLE CHECK OF THE

MONTH?"

Pat: NOT THE WHOLE

CHECK.

YOU'VE GOT A SYSTEM WHERE

PEOPLE PLANT AND HARVEST,

AND THERE WAS A TIME WHEN IT

WAS FIRST FRUITS, AND THEY

WAVED AN OFFERING UNDER THE

LORD.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GIVE

YOUR FIRST PAYCHECK EVERY

MONTH.

IT HAS TO DO WITH THE ANNUAL

AGRICULTURAL PLANTING.

I THINK IF YOU MAKE A

BUSINESS DEAL AND YOU HAVE,

SAY -- YOU'RE SELLING

PROPERTY AND YOUR FIRST

PAYCHECK, YOU GIVE A PORTION

OF THAT AS FIRST FRUITS.

I THINK WE SHOULDN'T BE ALL

HUNG UP ON LEGALISM.

WE'RE FREE FROM THIS.

IN A SENSE, EVERYTHING THAT

WE HAVE BELONGS TO THE

LORD.

AND WE GIVE HIM WHAT BELONGS

TO HIM.

IT IS ALL HIS.

LET HIM GUIDE YOU AS YOU GO

ALONG.

Terry: THIS IS RAYMOND

WHO SAYS, "MY FORMER

PREACHER TOLD ME BECAUSE I

LEFT HIS CHURCH AND WENT TO

ANOTHER ONE, I SHOULD BE

GOING TO HELL.

IF I SHOULD RUN INTO HIM

AGAIN AND HE REPEATS THIS

SENTIMENT, WHAT SHOULD I SAY

TO HIM?"

Pat: SAY, YOU LOOK

FORWARD TO MEETING HIM IN

HELL, TOO, BECAUSE YOU'LL BE

GOING THERE, TOO.

THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS FOR A

PASTOR TO SAY THAT.

THAT'S WHAT A CULT SAYS.

THAT'S THE WAY CULTS KEEP

THEIR MEMBERSHIP.

IF YOU LEAVE US, YOU ARE

GOING TO HELL.

IF YOU LEAVE OUR CULT,

YOU'RE GOING TO HELL.

THAT SOUNDS CULTISH.

YOU NEED TO GET AS FAR AWAY

FROM HIM AS YOU CAN.

IF YOU MEET HIM AGAIN, WHAT

DO YOU SAY?

YOU SAY, I DON'T BUY WHAT

YOU'RE TEACHING.

I THINK YOU'RE IN ERROR.

BUT DON'T GET HUNG UP ON

IT.

JUST GO AND GET AWAY.

Terry: THIS IS SHEILA

WHO SAYS, "IS IT OKAY TO

LISTEN TO CHRISTIAN RAP

MUSIC?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW WHAT

IS IN THE RAP MUSIC.

Terry: THERE ARE

CHRISTIAN RAP MUSICIANS.

Pat: BUT SHE DOESN'T

SAY WHAT KIND OF RAP MUSIC

SHE IS LISTENING TO.

HERE IS THE RULE: IF IT IS

NOT OF FAITH, IT IS SIN.

IF YOU BELIEVE IT IS WRONG,

THEN IT IS WRONG.

I KNOW THAT SOUNDS LIKE LUCY

GOOSY, BUT IT IS.

I THINK THESE CHRISTIAN

RAPPERS ARE TRYING TO SERVE

THE LORD, AND THEY WANT TO

GLORIFY GOD IN THIS MEDIUM

OF MUSIC.

SO, IS IT A SIN TO LISTEN TO

IT?

I DON'T THINK SO.

BUT IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU

FEEL IN YOUR OWN HEART.

IF YOU FEEL YOU'RE GUILTY,

THEN DON'T DO IT.

Terry: THAT IS EASY.

Pat: WELL, MALARIA, YOU

KNOW, THIS IS SOMETHING OUR

GOOD FRIEND RICHARD NIXON

AND THE UNITED NATIONS

BROUGHT ON US.

RACHEL CARSON WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "SILENT SPRING," AND

SHE SAID D.D.T. WAS CAUSING

PROBLEMS.

AND SO WE BAN D.D.T.

AND AS A RESULT, THERE HAS

BEEN AN EXPLOSION OF MALARIA

THROUGHOUT THE THIRD WORLD.

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS HAVE

THIS KILLER DISEASE.

IT IS A KILLER DURING THE

MONSOON SEASON IN PLACES

LIKE SOUTHEAST INDIA.

BUT IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO

HELP PEOPLE PROTECT

THEMSELVES, BEGINNING WITH A

SIMPLE MOSQUITO KIT AND

MOSQUITO NET.

HERE, TAKE A LOOK.

Terry: DEAND HE DEE

AND HER FAMILY WORK IN THE

RICE FIELDS IN SOUTHEAST

INDIA.

EVERY MONSOON SEASON, THEY

SEE THEIR NEIGHBORS SUFFER

AND SOMETIMES DIE FROM

MALARIA BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO

WAY TO PROTECT THEMSELVES.

MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE

FOUR CHILDREN.

WE BARELY MAKE ENOUGH TO BUY

FOOD.

LET ALONE MOSQUITO NETS.

Terry: WHEN HER HUSBAND

AND SON WERE INFECTED WITH

MALARIA, SHE PRAYED TO HER

HINDU GODS FOR HEALING, BUT

HER FAMILY ONLY GOT SICKER.

THAT'S WHEN A CHRISTIAN

PASTOR CAME TO THEIR HOME

AND PRAYED WITH THEM.

AND HE ALSO TOLD THEM ABOUT

A FREE MALARIA TREATMENT

CAMP, SPONSORED BY CBN.

THEY GAVE US TREATMENTS

AND MOSQUITO NETS.

Terry: HER HUSBAND AND

SON ARE RESPONDING WELL TO

THE MEDICINE, AND ARE

EXPECTED TO MAKE A FULL

RECOVERY.

THE PASTOR CONTINUES TO

VISIT THE FAMILY, TO TALK TO

THEM ABOUT JESUS CHRIST AND

TO SEE HOW THEY'RE DOING.

I GIVE MILLIONS OF THANKS

AND RESPECT TO YOU FOR ALL

YOU HAVE DONE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Pat: BECAUSE WE BELIEVE

IN HELPING PEOPLE.

WE BELIEVE IN TAKING CARE OF

THE SICK AND ALSO PREVENTING

DISEASE.

I JUST READ SOMETHING

YESTERDAY, BY THE WAY -- WE

WORK IN HAITI WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING," AND A

GROUP, I THINK FROM

BANGLADESH CAME IN FROM THE

UNITED NATIONS.

THEY HAD CHOLERA, AND THEY

DIDN'T TAKE CARE OF IT.

AND IT GOT INTO THE WATERS

OF HAITI.

AND THEY HAVEN'T HAD CHOLERA

IN HAITI FOR 100 YEARS.

AND NOW THEY'VE GOT IT, AND

MILLIONS HAVE BEEN

AFFECTED.

AND I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS HAVE

DIED.

Terry: IT IS

DEVASTATING.

Pat: AND THEY'RE ASKING

THE UNITED NATIONS TO PAY

THE BILL FOR WHAT THEY DID.

IN ANY EVENT, WE BELIEVE IN

HELPING PEOPLE.

WE HELPED THEM GET CLEAN

WATER IN HAITI, AND WE

HELPED THEM GET MOSQUITO

NETS IN INDIA, SO WHATEVER

IS GOING ON, WE CAN MAKE IT

BETTER.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT.

"THE 700 CLUB" IS 65 CENTS A

DAY.

YOU MAY WANT TO MAKE A

SPECIAL CONTRIBUTION TO CBN

DISASTER RELIEF, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THIS

IF YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

GORDON DID THIS THING CALLED

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

PEOPLE HAVE DREAMS, AND WHAT

DO DREAMS MEAN?

IT IS KIND OF INTERESTING.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE HAD

DREAMS IN THE BIBLE THAT

HAVE SOME MEANING.

SO WE'LL GIVE YOU THIS WHEN

YOU JOIN.

SO PLEASE CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S HELP THOSE WHO NEED

OUR HELP.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, MEET A

MAN WITH A PAINFUL BONE SPUR

ON HIS FOOT, AND SEE HOW HE

WAS HEALED IN AN INSTANT ON

HIS BIRTHDAY.

PLUS WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS.

SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: LAST MAY RAMONE

RODRIGUEZ SAYS HE GOT THE

BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER,

AND IT CAME WHILE HE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM WITH

HIS WIFE.

HERE IS HOW IT HAPPENED.

PIE

I WENT OUTSIDE IN THE

BACKYARD, AND I WAS WALKING

ALONG THE SANDS, AND I

STEPPED INTO A HOLE, AND MY

FOOT TWISTED.

RIGHT AWAY I FELT PAIN.

AND I TOLD MY WIFE HAD

HAPPENED.

AND SO SHE SAID, YOU SHOULD

GO SEE A DOCTOR.

AND I SAID, NO, I BELIEVE IT

IS OKAY.

I'M SURE THAT IT'S JUST A

SPRAIN, BUT IT HURT.

IT REALLY HURT.

THIS WENT ON FOR ABOUT A

MONTH.

IT CONTINUED AND MY WIFE

FINALLY TALKED ME INTO GOING

TO THE DOCTOR.

AND WHEN I WENT TO THE

DOCTOR, THEY TOOK X-RAYS.

THEY FOUND OUT THAT I HAD A

HAIRLINE FRACTURE WITH A

SPUR THAT HAD DEVELOPED.

THEY SET ME UP FOR THERAPY.

AND STILL THE PAIN

CONTINUED.

WE USED TO GO TO THE PARK

AND WALK AROUND THE PARK,

AND IT WAS PAINFUL.

AND I COULD ONLY DO SO MUCH

AND I'D HAVE TO GIVE UP AND

GO HOME.

OKAY, LET'S GO.

MY BIRTHDAY CAME ALONG ON

MAY 7th.

WE WERE SITTING DOWN IN THE

LIVING ROOM WATCHING PAT,

AND HE SAID THERE IS SOMEONE

OUT THERE WITH A RIGHT FOOT

SPUR THAT HAD DEVELOPED.

AND THE LORD IS HEALING THAT

RIGHT NOW.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS GOT A

BONE SPUR.

I GUESS IT IS IN YOUR HEEL.

AND IT IS VERY PAINFUL.

IT IS A CALCIUM DEPOSIT THAT

IS STICKING INTO SOMETHING,

AND RIGHT NOW IT IS

LITERALLY MELTING AWAY AND

IT WILL BE GONE.

MY WIFE AND I, RIGHT

AWAY, WE CLAIMED THAT.

WE LAID HANDS ON MY FOOT.

THERE WAS A WARMTH THAT CAME

OVER IT, AND PRAISE GOD, THE

LORD HEALED IT RIGHT THEN

AND THERE.

MY HEEL FEELS FANTASTIC.

IT FEELS GREAT.

I CAN JUMP.

I CAN RUN.

THERE IS NO HINDRANCE.

NONE WHATSOEVER.

THAT MIRACLE CAME.

THANK YOU, FATHER.

OUR GOD CAN DO ANYTHING.

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

Terry: QUITE THE

BIRTHDAY GIFT.

HERE IS ANOTHER ONE TO BUILD

YOUR FAITH.

THIS IS ELAINE, WHO HAD A

RAPID HEART BEAT FOR TWO

WEEKS AND SHE COULDN'T

FOCUS.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, PAT, YOU

SAID THIS "A LEFT VENTRICLE

IS NOT PUMPING RIGHT, AND

RIGHT NOW GOD IS DOING

OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL A BURST

OF ENERGY, AND THAT ENERGY

WILL CONTINUE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS."

ELAINE'S RAPID HEARTBEAT

STOPPED IMMEDIATELY AND IT

HAS NOT RETURNED.

Pat: ASK AND YOU SHALL

RECEIVE, SEEK AND YOU SHALL

FIND, KNOCK AND THE DOOR

SHALL BE OPENED.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN HANDS,

AND WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD FOR YOU.

FATHER, I JOIN HANDS WITH MY

DEAR SISTER, AND FOR THE

PEOPLE IN HIS AUDIENCE,

WHEREVER THEY FIND

THEMSELVES RIGHT NOW, WE ASK

FOR MIRACLES OF HEALING.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, MANY

THOUSANDS WHO HAVE

ARTHRITIS, EVEN AT THIS

MOMENT ARE BEING HEALED.

THE ARTHRITIC CONDITION IS

GOING TO BE ALLEVIATED.

THE SWELLING WILL GO DOWN,

AND THE IMFLAMMATION WILL GO

DOWN, AND THE PAIN WILL

LEAVE IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE A -- IT IS

QUITE CHRONIC, LIKE A

RASPINESS IN THE BACK OF

YOUR THROAT.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

IT IS JUST GOING TO GO

AWAY.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE LIKE

A PAIN THAT GOES UP IN YOUR

JAW AND BEHIND YOUR EARS.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

Pat: PEACE LIKE A

RIVER.

PEACE LIKE A RIVER.

YOU HAD TROUBLE, AND YOU'RE

WORRIED IN MIND, BUT GOD IS

GIVING YOU PEACE LIKE A

RIVER.

IN JESUS' NAME.

I THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING WITH US.

WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE,

TAKEN FROM THE BOOK OF

ISAIAH 58: "THE LORD WILL

GUIDE YOU CONTINUALLY, AND

SATISFY YOUR SOUL AND

STRENGTHEN YOUR BONES.

YOU SHALL BE LIKE A WATERED

GARDEN, LIKE A SPRING OF

WATER, WHO'S WATERS DO NOT

FAIL."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT FOR TODAY'S PROGRAM.

TERRY AND I SAY GOOD-BYE,

AND REMIND YOU ON

VALENTINE'S DAY, A HUSBAND

AND WIFE SEPARATED BY WAR

ARE REUNITED AFTER 11 LONG

YEARS.

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.

UNTIL THEN, GOOD-BYE AND GOD

BLESS YOU.
