Neglected and abused as a child, Jennifer fell into addiction and prostitution as a runaway. Plus, the Shores sisters remember growing up in Alabama during the turbulent Civil Rights era. Read Transcript


YOUR LIFE IS A GIFT.

YOUR LIFE HAS A PURPOSE.

Reporter: ON THE ROAD

WITH PRO-LIFE LEADER, LEILA

ROSE.

THERE IS A SPIRITUAL

BATTLE HAPPENING IN OUR

MIDST.

PLUS...

THERE WAS A VERY DARK

FORCE AT MY HOME.

HOW SHE ESCAPED THE

MONSTER.

AND THEN...

WE HAD A FEAST RIGHT AT

THE FIRST PLACE OF HISTORY.

THE HERO WHO SURVIVED THE

BOMB AND BECAME A CIVIL

RIGHTS LEGEND.

IF I GAVE INTO THE HATE,

IT WOULD DESTROY ME.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THE QUESTION IN THE UKRAINE,

WILL PUTIN'S GOVERNMENT WIN

OUT OR WILL PRO-DEMOCRACY

FORCES WIN OUT?

UKRAINE HAS DECLARED A DAY

OF NATIONAL MOURNING AFTER

25 PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN THE

LATEST VIOLENCE TO HIT THE

COUNTRY.

AND THE BATTLES AREN'T OVER

YET BY A LONG SHOT.

Terry: PROTESTORS AND

SECURITY FORCE ARE GETTING

READY FOR MORE

CONFRONTATIONS, WHILE

CHRISTIANS IN THE COUNTRY

ARE STANDING UP FOR THE

GOSPEL AND ASKING FOR

PRAYER.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

STORY.

George:

George: ACROSS UKRAINE,

THE STUNNING IMAGES FROM THE

CAPITAL CITY.

A VIOLENCE NEVER SEEN SINCE

THE DAYS OF INDEPENDENCE

MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO.

AS MANY HERE WORRY ABOUT A

BLOODY CIVIL WAR.

OVERNIGHT LARGE SECTIONS OF

THE PROTEST CAMP IN THE

HEART OF KIEV WAS ON FIRE.

I THINK THAT TODAY, AFTER

ALL THIS, PEOPLE WILL RISE

UP FOR REAL.

George: SOME 10,000

GOVERNMENT FORCES SURROUNDED

THE DEMONSTRATORS,

EVENTUALLY MOVING IN AND

SEIZING CONTROL OF A THIRD

OF INDEPENDENCE SQUARE.

IT IS REALLY SCARY.

WE CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW THE

GOVERNMENT CAN HATE THEIR

PEOPLE SO MUCH, BUT ON THE

OTHER HAND, IT IS NOT SCARY

HERE BECAUSE WHEN YOU COME

TO INDEPENDENCE SQUARE, IT

IS OBVIOUS THAT PEOPLE ARE

UNITED AND THEY ARE STAYING

UNTIL THE END.

George: THROUGHOUT THE

NIGHT, ANTI-GOVERNMENT

DEMONSTRATORS BATTLED WITH

STONES AND MOLOTOV

COCKTAILS, AGAINST POLICE

ARMED WITH HAND GRENADES AND

RUBBER BULLETS.

TODAY PROTESTORS ARE BACK ON

THE SQUARE, DIGGING IN FOR

ANOTHER DAY OF

CONFRONTATION.

THIS IS THE LAST WAR, THE

LAST CHANCE FOR US.

IF WE LEAVE NOW, EVERYTHING,

EVERYTHING WILL BE BROKEN.

George: THE CRISIS

BEGAN LAST NOVEMBER WHEN

UKRAINE'S PRESIDENT REJECTED

A TRADE DEAL WITH THE

EUROPEAN UNION.

THE PROTESTORS WANT CLOSER

TIES WITH EUROPE.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO SIDE

WITH PUTIN.

I THINK PUTIN WOULD LOVE

TO HAVE UKRAINE UNDER HIS

LEADERSHIP.

George: STEVE WEBBER

LEADS CBN'S OFFICE IN

UKRAINE.

HE SAYS FROM KREMLIN'S

PERSPECTIVE, RUSSIA HAS NO

BORDERS.

THERE IS A UNION BETWEEN

KYRZAKHSTAN AND BELARUS AND

RUSSIA, KIND OF A ECONOMIC

CONSOLIDATION, BUT HE WANTS

UKRAINE IN THAT.

George: UKRAINE GAINED

ITS INDEPENDENCE FROM THE

FORMER SOVIET UNION BACK IN

1991, AND EVER SINCE THEN

THIS NATION HAS BEEN

SEARCHING FOR ITS TRUE

IDENTITY.

IN FACT, HALF THE COUNTRY IS

EVENLY SPLIT.

THE EAST SIDE IS

PRO-RUSSIAN.

THE WEST SIDE,

PRO-EUROPEAN.

AND THIS CRISIS HAS ONLY

DEEPENED THOSE DIVISIONS.

MEANWHILE, CHURCHES ACROSS

DEMO DENOMINATIONS HAVE

BEEN ACTIVELY INVOLVED,

HOPING TO SPEAK TRUTH AND

HOPE INTO THE CRISIS.

THEY'VE HELD 24-HOUR PRAYER

VIGILS.

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 ON M MIDONG, SAYING,

"PRAYER FOR JESUS, JESUS HAS

THE FUTURE FOR OUR NATION."

George: THIS MORNING ON

Facebook, WEBBER CALLED

FOR PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD

TO PRAY FOR UKRAINE.

WE JUST NEED TO PRAY

THERE THER THAT THERE WILL

BE A WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF

PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SERVE FOR

THE GOOD OF THE PEOPLE.

George: GEORGE THOMAS,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU REALLY SHOULD

BE PRAYING FOR THE UKRAINE.

IT WAS THE BREAD BASKET OF

EUROPE.

IT HAS THE POTENTIAL OF

BEING AN AGRICULTURAL SUPER

POWER.

RUSSIA WANTS IT AS A

SATELLITE, AND THE PEOPLE

SAY, NO, WE WANT TO BE

PRO-WESTERN AND FREE.

IT HAS A TREMENDOUS HISTORY

OF CHRISTIANITY.

THEY HAVE OVER A THOUSAND

YEARS OF CHRISTIAN HISTORY.

AND WE HAVE A VERY STRONG

PRESENCE IN THE UKRAINE.

WE HAVE A HUGE TV STUDIO

THERE.

AND STEVE WEBBER HAS DONE A

TERRIFIC JOB.

KEEP IN MIND, LET'S PRAY FOR

THAT COUNTRY BECAUSE WE

DON'T NEED IT TO GO BACK

INTO THE SOVIET ORBIT, AND

WE ALSO DON'T NEED

RESTRICTIVE LAWS RIGHT NOW

ABOUT BRINGING IN MONEY

COMING FROM OTHER SOURCES

THAT WILL CUT OFF SOME OF

THE BANKS.

TERRY, YOU HAVE AN ORPHANAGE

IN THE UKRAINE?

Terry:

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" HAS

MULTIPLE, MULTIPLE

PROJECTS.

WE'RE INVOLVED IN SOMETHING

LIKE 13 ROMA COMMUNITIES,

AND WE HAVE 18 TRAINING

CENTERS FOR KIDS AGING OUT

OF ORPHANAGES.

ALL KINDS OF WORK, NOT TO

MENTION WHAT CBN

INTERNATIONAL HAS FOCUSED

THERE.

SO IF THEY BEGIN TO CHARGE A

TAX ON THE MONIES COMING IN,

GIVEN AS DONATIONS FOR THE

WORK THERE, THAT WOULD

HUGELY EFFECT THEM.

Pat: WHO IS DOING THAT,

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

COUNTRY?

Terry: THAT'S PART OF

THE NEW LAW.

THE PEOPLE ARE RISING UP

BECAUSE THEY'VE HAD

FREEDOM.

THEY'VE TASTED IT.

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

WANT TO GO BACK TO RUSSIAN

DOMINATION.

IT IS FINANCIAL.

IT'S ALL FINANCIAL.

BUT WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

THAT COUNTRY TO TRULY

ESTABLISH ITSELF AS

PENTAGON.

INDEPENDENT.

TO SEE COUNTRYMAN AGAINST

COUNTRYMAN IS JUST SUCH A

SAD THING.

Pat: YOU REMEMBER THAT

FORMER PRIME MINISTER WHO

WAS POISONED.

Terry: USHENKO.

Pat: YES, AND THE PRIME

MINISTER, THEY PUT HER IN

JAIL.

AND SHE WAS A PRETTY GOOD

PERSON.

IT IS SO MUCH CORRUPTION.

EVERYBODY IS INTO THE TILL.

Terry: AS WE PRAY, ONE

OF THE THINGS WE SHOULD PRAY

FOR IS THAT GOD WOULD RAISE

UP A LEADER, AS STEVE SAYS,

HAS THE TRUE LIFE AND FUTURE

OF THIS COUNTRY AT MIND

RATHER THAN FINANCIAL GAIN.

Pat: IT IS RIGHT IN THE

HEART OF EUROPE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMENMENT AND, A LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

AND AS I SAY, IT IS AN

AGRICULTURAL BREAD BASKET.

AND STALIN PUT THE CRAMPS ON

THE UKRAINIANS, AND THEY HAD

ALL OF THIS FOOD AND HE

WOULDN'T LET THEM EAT IT.

IT WAS A HORRIBLE THING.

THEY HAVE BEEN THROUGH GREAT

TURMOIL.

BUT THIS THING IS OUT OF

CONTROL.

THAT PRESIDENT, QUITE

FRANKLY, NEEDS TO RESIGN,

AND THE UNITED STATES NEEDS

TO HELP THE PROTESTORS.

WE NEED TO COME DOWN, ONCE

IN OUR LIVES, ON THE PART OF

FREEDOM AND NOT ON THE PART

OF THESE NASTY DICTATORS.

IN OTHER NEWS, NORTH KOREA

CAREER HAS ARRESTED A

CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

AN AUSTRALIAN MISSIONARY IS

IN POLICE CUSTODY.

OFFICIALS DETAINED

75-YEAR-OLD JOHN SHORT FOR

ALLEGEDLY HANDING OUT

CHRISTIAN MATERIAL.

HE OWNS A CHRISTIAN

BOOKSTORE IN HONG KONG, AND

TRAVELLED TO PYONGYANG WITH

A TOUR GROUP FROM BEIJING.

NORTHERN KOREAN OFFICERS

TOOK HIM FROM HIS HOTEL

EARLY MONDAY MORNING.

RELIGIOUS ACTIVITY IS

FORBIDDEN IN NORTH KOREA.

AND FOREIGNORS ARE

REPEATEDLY ARRESTED.

KENNETH BAE, ANOTHER

MISSIONARY, IS SERVING 15

YEARS.

A HIGHER MINIMUM WAGE COULD

COST THE COUNTRY ABOUT A

HALF MILLION JOBS BY 2016.

THAT ANALYSIS COMES FROM THE

CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET

OFFICE.

THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN

PUSHING FOR A GRADUAL

INCREASE IN THE MINIMUM

WAGE, UP TO $10.10 BY 2016.

REPUBLICANS HAVE LONG

OPPOSED THE MINIMUM WAGE

BOOST, CALLING IT A JOB

KILLER.

SENATE MAJORITY LEADER HARRY

REID IS EXPECTED TO BRING

THE DEBATE TO THE SENATE

FLOOR NEXT MONTH.

Pat: THE DEMOCRATS ARE

EMBARRASSED.

YOU KNOW, SOCIALISM, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, DOES NOT

WORK.

AND WE HAVE IN THE WHITE

HOUSE A MAN WHO TENDS

TOWARDS SOCIALISM.

AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE

STATEST IN THEIR

ORIENTATION.

AND THE PROBLEM IS THEIR

IVORY TOWER ACADEMICS, AND

THEY HAVE LITTLE EXPERIENCE

IN THE REAL WORLD, AND THEY

DON'T REALIZE HOW THEIR

POLICIES ARE DESTROYING THE

GREATEST STATIO NATION ON

EARTH.

THIS ATTEMPT AT THE MINIMUM

WAGE IS ONE MORE ATTEMPT TO

GAIN CONTROL IN THE PRIVATE

SECTOR.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

DOING IN HEALTH CARE.

IF YOU LET THEM GET CONTROL,

THEY'LL RUIN ANYTHING

THEY'LL GET THEIR HANDS ON

BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, THERE

APPEARS TO BE A HUGE

DISCONNECT BETWEEN THE

PRESIDENT'S POSITIVE TALK

ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND WHAT

AMERICANS ARE EXPERIENCING.

THAT DIVIDE OCCURRED AGAINST

AS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

PRAISED THE 2009 STIMULUS,

ALSO KNOWN AS THE RECOVERY

ACT.

Reporter: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS

CELEBRATING THE FIVE-YEAR

ANNIVERSARY OF ITS 2009

STIMULUS PROGRAM.

A SELF-COCONGRATULATE

REPORT SAYS JUMP-STARTING

THE BUSINESSES AND THE

ECONOMY WAS SUCCESSFUL.

IRONICALLY, ALSO OUT THIS

WEEK, A NEW GALLOP POLL IN

WHICH AMERICANS SAY THEIR

BIGGEST CONCERN IS JOBS AND

UNEMPLOYMENT.

25% OF DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS AGREE IT IS THE

BIGGEST PROBLEM.

THEIR SECOND BIGGEST

CONCERN: THE ECONOMY.

I THINK THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE ARE A LITTLE BIT

AHEAD OF THE PRESIDENT ON

THIS ONE, AND THEY'RE

WORRIED.

Reporter: FORBES

CONTRIBUTOR AND VENTURE

CAPITALIST BILL FREZA

SAYS --

LOOK AT THE FACT THERE IS

AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF

UNCERTAINTY ON THE HORIZON

IN TERMS OF WHERE THEY'RE

GOING TO GET THEIR HEALTH

CARE, AND HOW MUCH IT WILL

COST, AND WITH EVERYBODY

NERVOUS, IT IS HARD FOR THE

AMERICAN POPULATION TO BE

EXCITED ABOUT THE ECONOMY

AND TO BELIEVE ANY OF THE

NUMBERS COMING OUT OF

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: LAST FALL THE

GALLOP SHOWED THAT THE

AMERICANS WERE MOST WORRIED

ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT AND

POLITICIANS.

BUT BEFORE THAT, GOING BACK

TO FEBRUARY 2008, AMERICANS

HAVE SAID THAT EITHER JOBS

OR THE ECONOMY WERE THE MOST

IMPORTANT PROBLEMS.

THIS CONSISTENT WORRY IS, OF

COURSE, UNLIKELY TO BE EASED

BY THE PRESIDENT'S LATEST

REPORT.

AND THERE IS ALREADY TALKS

THAT THE G.O.P. PLANS TO USE

ECONOMY CONCERNS AS A MAJOR

MID-TERM ELECTION WEAPON.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: PAT, WE'LL

SEND IT BACK TO YOU.

Pat: A RECENT POLL JUST

TAKEN INDICATED 71% OF THOSE

WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA WERE

SORRY THEY DID IT.

THEY THINK THEY MADE A

MISTAKE.

JOHN?

Reporter: WELL, PAT,

SPEAKING OF THAT POLL, THE

ECONOMY AND THE PROBLEMS

WITH OBAMACARE ARE TAKING

THEIR TOLL ON THE

PRESIDENT.

A NEW POLL SHOWS ONLY 79% OF

OBAMA VOTERS WERE VOTE

AGAIN, AND 71% REGRET VOTING

FOR HIM.

WELL, HOLLYWOOD WANTS A TAX

CUT FOR ITSELF.

FILM WORKS, A GROUP THAT

REPRESENTS THE ENTERTAINMENT

INDUSTRY, HAS STARTED AN

ONLINE PETITION.

THE DAILY CALL REPORTS THE

PETITION ASKS CALIFORNIA'S

FILM AND TV FANS TO PUSH

LAWMAKERS FOR GREATER

FINANCIAL BREAKS FOR FILM

PRODUCTION TO STAY IN

CALIFORNIA.

THE PETITION SAYS IF POLICY

MAKERS FAIL TO MAKE OUR

STATE MORE COMPETITIVE, THE

FILM INDUSTRY WILL FACE THE

SAME FATE AS AT COMPANIES,

INCLUDING AEROSPACE, WHICH

LEFT CALIFORNIA FOR OTHER

STATES.

WELL, EATING FOODS WITH

VITAMIN "C," LIKE ORANGES,

STRAWBERRIES AND BROCCOLI

MAKE UP THE RISK OF A

HEMORRHAGEIC STROKE.

THE RESEARCH IS STILL IN ITS

PRELIMINARY STAGE, BUT

MEDICAL NEWS TODAY REPORTS

IT COULD ADD TO THE GROWING

BODY OF EVIDENCE THAT LINKS

WHAT YOU EAT TO THE RISKS OF

HAVING A STROKE.

THAT WAS A RELATIVELY

SMALL-SCALE STUDY WITH BIG

IMPLICATIONS.

Pat: YOU WONDER -- WE

WERE ON TO THIS 20 YEARS

AGO, AND YOU WONDER WHY IT

TAKES THE MEDICAL PROFESSION

SO LONG TO CATCH UP.

JUST FOR YOUR INFORMATION,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

VITAMIN "C" ALONE WON'T DO

IT.

THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED

THE COMPLEX, THAT YOU HAVE

VITAMIN "C" COMPLEX, AND THE

BIOFLAVONOIDS ARE PART OF

WHAT'S INVOLVED IN SOME OF

THESE FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES.

AND PURE VITAMIN "C" IS

NICE, IT STRENGTHENS THE

CAPILLARIES AND THE

ARTERIES, BUT WITH THE

BIOFLAVONOIDS, RUTIN AND THE

OTHER THINGS THAT ARE

INVOLVED, ARE MUCH MORE

EFFECTIVE.

SO WER WHEN I TAKE VITAMIN

"C," I ALWAYS MAKE SURE IT

HAS THE VITAMIN "C"

COMPLEX.

AND THE STUDY SHOWS YOU EAT

BROCCOLI AND HAVE CITRUS

FRUITS.

Terry: THAT IS OFTEN

TRUE WITH VITAMINS, IT NEEDS

NOTHING TO GO WITH IT.

Pat: DO YOU TAKE THE

COMPLEX?

Terry: I THINK MY "C"

DOES.

I'LL HAVE TO GO HOME AND

CHECK.

Pat: YOU THINK?

YOU'RE GOING TO LEAVE THAT

TO CHANCE?

Terry: I'M NOT QUITE AS

INTO IT AS YOU ARE.

Pat: ALL RIGHT, KEEP

GOING.

Terry: COMING UP, SHE

IS 25 YEARS OLD AND A FORCE

TO BE RECKONED WITH.

MEET THE WOMAN WHO WENT

UNDERCOVER TO BUST PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

LIVE ACTION'S LEILA ROSE IS

NEXT.

*

Pat: WELL, WE HAVE SOME

UNLIKELY HEROS.

THE AMAZING THING IS THE

YOUNGER GENERATION, THE

GEN-Ys ARE PASSIONATELY

PRO-LIFE.

MANY OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE

SAY, YOU KNOW, THAT COULD

HAVE BEEN ME.

THEY ARE SO CLOSE TO

ABORTION AND THESE BABIES

AND THEY THINK, I COULD HAVE

BEEN THAT BABY.

LEILA ROSE IS JUST 25 YEARS

OLD, AND SHE HAS ALREADY

MADE A HUGE IMPACT ON THE

PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT.

AND SHE HAS BEEN NAMED ONE

OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL

WOMEN IN WASHINGTON UNDER

35.

AND AS DAVID BRODY REPORTS,

SHE HAS EVEN TAKEN ON

AMERICA'S LARGEST ABORTION

PROVIDER, PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

David: LEILA ROSE MAY

NOT LOOK LIKE A BRAWLER, BUT

THAT DOESN'T STOP HER FROM

TAKING THE FIGHT TO THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY.

TO PAY FOR DRUGS THAT ARE

KILLING HUMAN LIFE --

NOT DIRECTLY.

INDIRECTLY --

David: SHE DOESN'T

BACK DOWN.

AS LONG AS THEY ARE LEGAL

IN OUR NATION, THEN

ABORTIONS SHOULD BE DONE IN

OUR PUBLIC SQUARE.

WE'RE OBJECTIFYING AND

DEHUMANIZING HUMAN BEINGS,

AND THAT IS NEVER RIGHT.

WE HAVE TO STAND UP AGAINST

THAT AND EXPOSE IT.

David: AND EXPOSE IT,

SHE HAS.

BY USING HIDDEN CAMERAS, HER

GROUP, "LIVE ACTION,"

INVESTIGATED PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINICS.

IN ONE INCIDENT, ROSE POSED

AS A 13-YEAR-OLD, SAYING SHE

WAS HAVING SEXUAL RELATIONS

WITH A 31-YEAR-OLD.

THAT IS CONSIDERED CHILD

ABUSE AND SHOULD BE REPORTED

TO LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

"LIVE ACTION" CAMERAS

CAPTURED A WORKER SAYING

THIS INSTEAD.

I DIDN'T HEAR THE AGE.

I DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE

AGE.

Reporter AGE.

David: HER

INVESTIGATIONS HAVE LED TO

FIRINGS, POLITICAL

INVESTIGATIONS, AND MEDIA

ATTENTION.

SHE HAS BEEN NAMED ONE OF

THE MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMEN

IN WASHINGTON UNDER 35.

CRITICS, HOWEVER, CLAIM THE

UNDERCOVER VIDEOS ARE EDITED

IN A MISLEADING WAY.

ALTHOUGH "LIVE ACTION"

PROVIDES ALL LIVE VIDEO TO

MEDIA GROUPS.

YOU KNOW THE MEDIA GROUPS

CAN'T STAND YOU.

I LOVE THEM ALL.

David: LEILA FOUND HER

CALLING AT A YOUNG AGE.

I CAME ACROSS A BOOK AT 9

YEARS OLD, CALLED "THE HAND

BACK ON ABORTION."

I WAS INTERESTED, AND I

OPENED IT UP, AND IT FELL TO

THE CENTER.

WHAT I'M LOOKING AT IS THE

IMAGE OF A CHILD, IN THE

FIRST TRIMESTER, MAYBE 10

WEEKS OLD, NEWLY FORMING

EYES AND NOSE AND A FACE.

AND SHE WAS THE VICTIM OF

ABORTION.

David: THAT IMAGE PUT

HER ON A PRO-LIFE IMAGE.

SHE STARTED "LIVE ACTION" IN

HIGH SCHOOL AND THEN TOOK

HER CAUSE TO UCLA.

HER ACTIVISM INCREASED, AND

THE UNDERCOVER

INVESTIGATIONS BEGAN.

NOW ROSE'S ORGANIZATION

EMPLOYS 10 FULL-TIME STAFF

MEMBERS AND THEY'RE

GROWING.

LEILA ROSE AND HER "LIVE

ACTION" TEAM ARE KNOWN FOR

THOSE UNDERCOVER VIDEOS

EXPOSING ABORTION.

BUT HER REAL HEART IS TO

CHANGE THE HEARTS AND MINDS

OF YOUNG PEOPLE.

SO THAT IS WHY SHE COMES TO

PLACES LIKE THIS, IN

MINNEAPOLIS, IN THE SUBURBS,

IN A SNOWSTORM, ALL TO

AFFECT THE NEXT GENERATION.

I CHALLENGE THEM, YOUR

LIFE IS A GIFT.

YOUR LIFE HAS A PURPOSE.

THERE IS NO GREATER CAUSE

THAN THE CAUSE FOR LIFE IN

OUR COUNTRY.

David: INSIDE THESE

EVENTS, SHE SEES THIS,

HUNDREDS OF YOUNG, DEDICATED

TEENAGERS.

THERE IS DEFINITELY

PASSION.

EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTS THE

CAUSE IS SUPER INTO IT.

EVERYONE IS SUPER PASSIONATE

AND WANTS IT TO CHANGE.

David: AND STATISTICS

BACK THAT UP.

ONE RECENT STUDY SHOWS 51%

OF 18 TO 29-YEAR-OLDS

BELIEVE ABORTION SHOULD

EITHER BE TOTALLY ILLEGAL OR

ONLY AVAILABLE WITH SOME

EXCEPTIONS.

THE YOUTH ARE THE MOST

PRO-LIFE GENERATION WE

HAVE.

David: SHARON WILSON

RUNS A YOUTH PROGRAM IN THE

MINNEAPOLIS AREA.

SHE SAYS TECHNOLOGICAL

ADVANCES, THAT CAN EVEN SHOW

THE BABY'S FACES, MAKE A BIG

DIFFERENCE FOR THEM.

THESE KIDS GET IT.

THE CULTURE OF DEATH CAN'T

PUSH THIS ON TO THEM BECAUSE

THEY KNOW BETTER.

IT WILL BE THIS GENERATION

THAT WILL CHANGE THE LAWS

AND CHANGE THE HEARTS,

SPECIFICALLY, ON THE AREAS

OF ABORTION.

IT'S THEIR GENERATION THAT

HAS BEEN LOST.

A KEY MARKET FOR US IS

YOUNG PEOPLE.

WE NEED TO REACH MY

GENERATION.

AND FUTURE GENERATIONS.

David: IT IS WHY SHE

WORKS TO TEACH THEM THE

IMPORTANCE OF LIFE.

GOD CREATED US WITH A

PURPOSE.

AND BEFORE HE FORMED US IN

THE WOMB, HE HAD A PLAN FOR

US.

David: AND ROSE

ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE FIGHT

SHE IS FIGHTING IS BOTH SEEN

AND UNSEEN.

IN ALL OF THIS, THERE IS

SOMETHING EVEN DEEPER GOING

ON THAN WHAT WE CAN EVEN SEE

IN FRONT OF US.

THERE IS A SPIRITUAL BATTLE,

AN EPIC BATTLE HAPPENING IN

OUR MIDST.

IF WE BECOME ACTIVISTS AND

GO OUT THERE, EVEN IF IT IS

THE BEST CAUSE, EVEN IF

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE

AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND GOOD

THINGS, BUT IT IS NOT BEING

COMPLETELY IN FUSED, AND

PRAYER IS IN FUSING IT WITH

THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND THE

LOVE OF GOD, THEN WE ARE

NOTHING.

David: LEILA ROSE JUST

WANTS TO MAKE HER LIFE COUNT

FOR SOMETHING, AND KNOWS ALL

OF THIS BEGINS AND ENDS WITH

JESUS, WHOM SHE CALLS HER

FIRST FRIEND.

LIFE IS SHORT.

AND MY LIFE COULD BE VERY

SHORT.

WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG OUR

LIVES COULD BE.

SO USE TODAY FOR LOVE.

FOR LOVING GOD AND FOR

SHARING HIS LOVE AND HIS

SPECIFIC PLAN, AND HIS PLAN

FOR EACH PERSON IS SHARING

THAT WITH EVERYBODY THAT WE

MEET.

David: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT A BEAUTIFUL

GIRL AND HOW PASSIONATE.

BUT TO THINK THAT THE YOUNG

PEOPLE, THEY GET IT.

THEY THINK, YOU KNOW, THAT

COULD HAVE BEEN ME.

MY MOTHER COULD HAVE ABORTED

ME.

AND IT'S SO CLOSE TO THEM,

AND THEY CAN SEE IT.

AND THEY CAN SEE THE HORROR

OF IT.

AND THEY CAN SEE THESE

ULTRASOUNDS, AND THEY

REALIZE THAT THIS IS A

BABY.

THIS ISN'T A BLOB OF

TISSUE.

AND ALL OF THE LIES THAT ARE

BEING PUT OUT BY PLANNED

PARENTHOOD GO RIGHT OVER

THEIR HEAD.

THEY DON'T BUY IT.

THEY WANT THE TRUTH.

WELL, WE'VE GOT A TREMENDOUS

STORY FOR YOU RIGHT NOW,

TALKING ABOUT THE TRUTH.

HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: WE DO.

UP NEXT, SHE SOLD HER BODY

FOR DRUGS, HAUNTED BY THE

MEMORY OF HER FATHER.

HE WAS A MONSTER.

HE WAS A CHILD MOLESTER, AND

HE MOLESTED MY SISTER AND

EYI FOR MANY YEARS.

Terry: HOW SHE FOUND

LOVE IN A HOUSE OF HOPE,

AFTER THIS.

Pat: CAN YOU IMAGINE

THE HORROR OF A FATHER,

INSTEAD OF CHERISHING THAT

SWEET LITTLE GIRL THAT HAS

BEEN PUT INTO HIS LIFE, HIM

AND HIS WIFE, HE TAKES HER

AS A PREDATOR AND MAKES HER

A SEX SLAVE OR A SEX

OBJECT.

JENNIFER UNANCE LEARNED

EARLY ON HOW TO DENY HER

FEELING AND NUMB OUT WHEN

THIS WAS HAPPENING.

THAT WAS HER COPING

MECHANISM DURING YEARS OF

SEXUAL ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF

HER VERY OWN FATHER.

Reporter: JENNIFER GREW

UP IN A HOME FILLED WITH

DARKNESS AND FEAR.

MY DAD WAS SUPPOSED TO BE

MY HERO AND SOMEONE THAT I

LOOK UP TO AND MY PROTECTOR,

BUT INSTEAD HE WAS A

MONSTER.

HE WAS A CHILD MOLESTER, AND

HE MOLESTED MY SISTER AND I

FOR MANY YEARS.

HE WAS ANGRY, AND HE GOT

DRUNK A LOT.

AND HE WAS REALLY

UNPREDICTABLE.

DURING THE TIMES OF ABUSE, I

WOULD KIND OF TURN MY

EMOTIONS OFF OR TRY TO FOCUS

ON THINGS AS THE ABUSE WAS

HAPPENING.

LIKE FOCUS ON THE TILES IN

THE CEILING, AND KIND OF

COUNT THE TILES.

AND SOMETIMES I WOULD JUST

CRY, BUT I WOULD TRY TO HOLD

MY TEARS IN BECAUSE I DIDN'T

WANT MY DAD TO KNOW I WAS

CRYING.

IT WAS PAINFUL BECAUSE I

DIDN'T WANT IT TO HAPPEN,

BUT I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO BE

MAD AT ME.

I FELT REALLY DIRTY.

I FELT LIKE I WAS A BAD

KID.

BEING A CHILD AND BEING

ABUSED LIKE THIS TOOK AWAY

MY SELF-WORTH AND MY VALUE

AND MY SELF-ESTEEM.

AND I FELT REALLY ALONE.

AND, MOST OF ALL, THE ONLY

THING THAT I WANTED WAS

SOMEBODY TO LOVE ME

UNCONDITIONALLY, WITHOUT

HARMING ME.

AND THAT'S THE ONE THING

THAT I WAS LACKING.

BUT I KNEW I WANTED THAT.

Reporter: YEARS OF

SEXUAL ABUSE AND CONFUSION

LEFT JENNIFER FULL OF

ANXIETY.

SHE WAS HAUNTED BY DEMONIC

DREAMS AT NIGHT.

THERE WAS A VERY DARK

FORCE IN MY HOME.

IT WAS REALLY SCARY.

AT NIGHT I WOULD JUST PUT

THE COVERS OVER MY HEAD.

I WAS IN SO MUCH FEAR AT

NIGHT, ESPECIALLY IN THE

DARK.

AND SOMETIMES I WOULD JUST

LEAVE THE HOUSE SO THAT I

COULD GO TAKE MY MIND

ELSEWHERE.

AND I WOULD DO A LOT OF

PRETENDING OUTSIDE.

Reporter: WHEN SHE WAS

EIGHT YEARS OLD, A TEENAGED

NEIGHBOR TAUGHT JENNIFER

THERE WAS NO SAFE PLACE FOR

HER.

WE WERE ALL OUT RIDING

BIKES, ALL OF THE KIDS IN

THE NEIGHBORHOOD, AND HE

ASKED ME IF I WANTED TO COME

IN FOR SOME KOOL-AID, AND I

WENT INTO HIS HOUSE AND, UM,

HE ENDED UP BLINDFOLDING ME

AND ABUSING ME, SEXUALLY

ASSAULTING ME IN HIS HOUSE.

IT SEEMED LIKE EVERYWHERE I

WENT I WAS A TARGET.

Reporter: SHE NEVER

REPORTED IT, BUT WHEN SHE

WAS 14 YEARS OLD, SHE GOT

THE COURAGE TO TELL HER MOM

ABOUT THE YEARS OF ABUSE

FROM HER FATHER.

HER FATHER WENT TO PRISON,

BUT FOR JENNIFER THE PAIN

AND DARKNESS REMAINED.

ALL THAT FEAR AND

LONELINESS TURNED INTO

ANGER.

I FELT GUILTY FOR TELLING,

THAT I BROKE UP MY FAMILY.

AND I JUST WANTED TO HURT

MYSELF BECAUSE I FELT LIKE

THAT'S WHAT I DESERVED.

I BEGAN CUTTING MYSELF.

USING HEROIN, USING

COCAINE.

I DID EVERYTHING I COULD TO

GET THAT FROM NOW ON.

THAT BECAME REALLY ADDICTIVE

TO ME BECAUSE IT TOOK AWAY

ALL OF THAT PAIN, ALL OF

THAT SORROW, THE IDENTITY I

HAD TAKEN ON.

Reporter: SHE LIVED IN

HER CAR AND SOLD HER BODY

FOR DRUGS.

JENNIFER SAYS SHE STAYED

HIGH FOR WEEKS AT A TIME.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I

WOULD COME DOWN OFF THE

DRUGS.

I WOULD SLEEP FOR DAYS AND

EAT, BUT I WOULD CRY

UNCONTROLLABLY.

JUST MY EMOTIONS TOOK OVER.

THEN I WOULD WALK AROUND

OUTSIDE, AND WALK UP AND

DOWN THE STREETS, JUST

PRAYING THAT SOMEBODY WOULD

STOP, PULL OVER, AND HELP

ME.

Reporter: AND SHE SAYS

SHE FELT TRAPPED AND

HOPELESS.

JENNIFER GOT INVOLVED WITH A

DRUG-DEALING BIKER THAT

NEARLY COST HER HER LIFE.

I TOOK ON A LOT OF

BEATINGS.

I FIGURED IF HE DIDN'T KILL

ME, I MIGHT AS WELL KILL

MYSELF.

I'M GOING TO DIE EITHER

WAY.

SO I TOOK HIS GUN ONE DAY,

WHEN HE WAS AT WORK, AND I

FOUGHT WITH THAT GUN FOR

OVER AN HOUR, JUST CRYING.

I JUST WANTED TO END

EVERYTHING.

BY THAT TIME I WAS DONE.

I DIDN'T WANT THAT LIFE

ANYMORE.

Reporter: FOR JENNIFER,

HOPE CHANGED WHEN HE

RECONCILED WITH HER MOM, WHO

HAD BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

HER MOTHER TOLD HER ABOUT

BETHANY HOUSE, A CHRISTIAN

HOME FOR GIRLS ON THE

STREET.

DESPERATE FOR HELP, SHE WENT

TO THE HOME.

I COULD SEE THE LIGHT

INSIDE THE HOUSE.

THE MINUTE I WALKED IN, IT

WAS ALMOST LIKE A WHOOSH OF

DARKNESS THAT HAD LEFT.

I COULD SEE THE HOLY SPIRIT

ON EVERYONE'S FACE.

I FELT THE LOVE.

IT WAS UNCONDITIONAL.

IT WAS PURE.

IT WAS HOLY.

I HAD NEVER FELT ANYTHING

LIKE THAT IN MY LIFE.

IT WAS GOING FROM HELL INTO

HEAVEN, IN A SENSE.

I KNEW IT WASN'T FROM THIS

WORLD.

WHY WOULD SOMEONE LIKE THAT

LOVE ME?

WHY WOULD THESE PEOPLE EVEN

OPEN A HOME LIKE THIS FOR

PEOPLE LIKE ME?

THAT WAS A REALLY PIVOTAL

MOMENT IN MY LIFE, TO KNOW

THAT PEOPLE LOVE ME AND IT

WAS FOR NOTHING BUT JUST

THEIR LOVE.

Reporter: THE NEXT DAY,

JENNIFER BECAME A

CHRISTIAN.

WHEN IT MEANT FOR ME TO

GIVE MY LIFE TO CHRIST MEANT

THAT I WOULD NO LONGER HAVE

TO LIVE IN DARKNESS, AND I

WOULD NO LONGER HAVE TO BE

ABUSED, AND THAT I FINALLY

FOUND THE LOVE THAT I HAD

ALWAYS LOOKED FOR IN MY

LIFE.

IT WAS EVERYTHING I HAD BEEN

SEARCHING FOR SINCE I WAS A

CHILD.

JESUS IS MY HEAVENLY FATHER,

AND HE'LL ALWAYS BE MY

PROTECTOR, AND HE'LL ALWAYS

BE MY HERO.

Reporter: SHE SAYS GOD

BEGAN HEALING THE EMOTIONAL

WOUNDS FROM YEARS OF ABUSE.

SHE RECENTLY FOUNDED "HOUSE

OF ANGETTY, ANGETY," A

HOUSE FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE

BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED AND

EXPLOITED.

WHEN THEY WALK IN,

THEY'RE GOING TO EXPERIENCE

THE SAME THING THAT I

EXPERIENCED WHEN I WALKED IN

IN THE BETHANY HOUSE.

Reporter: JENNIFER SAYS

THE ABUSE THAT USED TO

DEFINE HER IS NOW REPLACED

WITH THE LOVE AND GRACE OF

GOD.

I'M A NEW CREATION IN

CHRIST.

THE OLD HAS PASSED AWAY.

AND FINDING OUT MY TRUE

IDENTITY, WHICH IS IN HIM,

AND THAT I'M HIS DAUGHTER,

I'M FORGIVEN, I'M HIS

FRIEND.

ANYONE OUT THERE WHO IS HURT

OR ABUSED WHO THINKS THEY

CAN'T GO ANYWHERE IN LIFE,

THAT THEY'RE SUICIDAL, GOD

CAN RAISE YOU UP TO DO

ANYTHING.

JUST CALL OUT THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AND THERE IS HOPE IN HIM.

Pat: WHO AM I?

WHERE AM I GOING?

WHY AM I HERE?

THOSE QUESTIONS ARE IN EVERY

TEENAGER.

AND IF THEY GREW UP IN A

LOVING HOME, THEY FIND AN

IDENTITY IN THE FACT THAT

THEIR MOTHER AND FATHER LOVE

THEM.

THEY GROW OUT WITH AN

ATTITUDE OF LOVE.

YEAH, THEY MIGHT REBEL A

LITTLE BIT AND EXPLORE A FEW

THINGS, BUT THEY ALL FEEL

LOVE.

AND WE ALL WANT LOVE.

AND GOD ALMIGHTY SAYS I LOVE

YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS GOD IS LOVE.

HE IS NOT LOVING.

HE IS LOVE ITSELF.

HE IS FORGIVING AND HE IS

ACCEPTING.

AND WE ALL WANT THAT

FATHER.

HE IS THE FATHER UPON WHOM

ALL FAMILIES ARE NAMED.

WE FIND OUT ABOUT LOVE.

WE LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE FIRST

LOVED US.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS

UNTIL WE MET GOD.

SO IF SOMEBODY IS BROUGHT UP

IN AN ABUSIVE SITUATION, AND

THE ONES THAT ARE SUPPOSED

TO LOVE THEM TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF THEM AND HURT THEM, THEY

SAY, WHO AM I?

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT?

I NEED AN ANSWER.

IF YOU'RE LIKE JENNIFER, I

WANT TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN

ANSWER, AND THE ANSWER IS IN

JESUS CHRIST.

HE LOVES YOU.

AND HE IS THE LORD OF

GLORY.

AND WHAT HE'LL DO IS GIVE

YOU A BRAND NEW LIFE.

YOU WANT ACCEPTANCE.

YOU WANT SOMEBODY, A FATHER,

TO PUT HIS ARMS AROUND YOU

AND LOVE YOU AND PROTECT

YOU.

HE'LL DO THAT.

BECAUSE THAT'S THE KIND OF

GOD HE IS.

HE LOVES YOU.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO CONDEMN

YOU.

HE WANTS TO LOVE YOU.

AND IF YOU'D LIKE TO RESPOND

TO THAT LOVE, ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS ASK.

ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE.

SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND.

KNOCK AND THE DOOR WILL BE

OPENED.

DO YOU WANT LOVE?

DO YOU WANT ACCEPTANCE?

DO YOU WANT FORGIVENESS?

DO YOU WANT PEACE?

DO YOU WANT JOY?

DO YOU WANT THE KNOWLEDGE

THAT WHEN THIS LIFE IS OVER

YOU'RE GOING TO BE WITH HIM

FOREVER?

IT'S REAL EASY.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME

RIGHT NOW.

LET THE LOVE OF GOD COME

INTO YOUR HEART.

THESPRAY THESE WORDS --

THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, I NEED LOVE.

I NEED SOMEBODY TO LOVE ME.

I NEED SOMEBODY TO FORGIVE

ME.

AND TO WELCOME ME AND TO

TAKE CARE OF ME.

AND, LORD, I KNOW THAT'S

WHAT YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU

DO.

AND SO I BELIEVE, LORD, THAT

YOU LOVE ME SO MUCH YOU DIED

FOR ME ON THE CROSS, TO

FORGIVE MY SINS.

SO I COME TO YOU RIGHT NOW

AND I RECEIVE YOU AS SAVIOR

AND I MAKE YOU LORD OF MY

LIFE.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I AM

YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT YOU TO THANK GOD HE HAS

HEARD YOUR PRAYER.

BUT I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SEE

YOU ESTABLISH WHAT IS NEXT

BECAUSE YOU'LL COME AND SAY,

WELL, I JUST PRAYED WITH

THIS GUY ON TELEVISION, BUT

WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

SO IT'S OUR PRIVILEGE TO SAY

WE HAVE FOR YOU A COMPACT

DISC.

IT'S 73 MINUTES OF VERY

INTENSE TEACHING ABOUT WHAT

YOU HAVE JUST DONE.

AND I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE.

THERE IS NO OBLIGATION

WHATSOEVER.

AND ALONG WITH THIS, A

LITTLE BOOK THAT HAS THE

BIBLICAL VERSES THAT ARE IN

THAT TEACHING.

IT IS BACKED UP BY THE HOLY

BIBLE.

AND WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU.

AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

CALL AND SAY, I PRAYED WITH

PAT; I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

WE'VE GOT, ON THE PHONES,

PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU AND CARE

ABOUT YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

AND SAY, I PRAYED WITH THAT

GUY ON TV, AND I GAVE MY

HEART TO THE LORD, AND I'D

LIKE THAT NEW PACKET CALLED

"A NEW DAY."

1-800-759-0700.

IF FOR ANY REASON THE LINES

ARE BUSY, BE PATIENT.

WE'VE GOT LOTS AND LOTS OF

TELEPHONES.

1-800-759-0700.

NO FINANCIAL OBLIGATION

WHATSOEVER.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, I WANT

TO TELL YOU I JUST MADE THIS

DECISION, I GAVE MY HEART TO

JESUS.

PLEASE SEND ME "A NEW DAY."

HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT ON"

WITH YOUR E-MAIL.

VIRTRUM SAID, "I WAS READING

IN MARK 16 THAT WASN'T

INCLUDED IN ONE OF MY

BIBLES.

I ASKED SOME PEOPLE ABOUT

IT, AND THEY SAID IT WAS

ADDED AT A LATER DATE.

WHY?

AND DOESN'T THAT POSE A

PROBLEM?"

WE'RE GOING TO FIND OUT IN A

LITTLE BIT.

IT'S ALL COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

A JUDGE IN NEW MEXICO SAYS

TERMINALLY ILL PATIENTS CAN

CHOOSE TO END THEIR LIVES

WITH THE HELP OF A DOCTOR.

THE RULING MEANS PHYSICIANS

LEGALLY CAN PRESCRIBE LETHAL

DOSES OF MEDICINE TO DYING

PATIENTS.

JUDGE NAN NASH WROTE, "THIS

COURT CANNOT ENVISION A

RIGHT, MORE FUNDAMENTAL, OR

MORE PRIVATE INTEGRAL TO THE

SAFETY OF A NEW MEXICO CAN

THAN THE RIGHT OF A

TERMINALLY ILL PATIENT TO

CHOOSE AID IN DYING."

OREGON, WASHINGTON STATE,

MONTANA, AND HAWAII ALL

ALLOW PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED

SUICIDE.

TAKING A WALK COULD BE GOOD

FOR YOUR MEMORY.

RESEARCHERS FOUND THUNDER AN

ENERGETIC WALK THREE TIMES A

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

*

Terry: WE WANT TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS FOR A FEW

MOMENTS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

BIRTRUM, WHO SAYS, "I FANCY

MYSELF AS A BIBLICAL

SCHOLAR.

I LIKE TO CROSS-REFERENCE

VERSES WITH OTHER

TRANSLATIONS.

I WAS READING IN MARK 16,

AND I SAW AN ENTIRE SECTION

WASN'T INCLUDED IN ONE OF MY

BIBLES.

IT DEALT WITH THE

RESURRECTION OF CHRIST.

I ASKED SOME PEOPLE, AND

THEY SAID IT WAS ADDED AT A

LATER DATE.

WHY?

AND DOESN'T THAT POSE A

PROBLEM?"

Pat: BIRTRUM, TO START

WITH, YOUR NOT A BIBLICAL

STUDENT.

SCHOLAR.

YOU'RE AN EAGER STUDENT.

WE DON'T HAVE SOMETHING THAT

WAS WRITTEN BY THE HAND OF

THE APOSTLE PAUL OR PETER

AND GIVEN TO US.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

THE BEST ONES WE'VE GOT ARE

AT LEAST 100 YEARS

AFTERWARDS, I THINK.

SO WHAT DO WE DO WHEN WE

WANT TO TRANSLATE

SOMETHING?

WE HAVE TO GET A GREEK TEXT

FROM SOMEWHERE.

NOW, THERE WAS ONE THAT WAS

CALLED THE TEXTUS RECEPTUS

THAT WAS PUT TOGETHER BY A

SCHOLAR ERASMUS, AND THAT IS

THE ONE THE KING JAMES WAS

TRA TRANSLATED FROM.

AFTER A TIME, SCHOLARS HAD

DISCOVERED MORE ANCIENT

MANUSCRIPTS GETTING CLOSER

AND CLOSER TO THE ORIGINAL.

THEY HAVE BEEN PUT TOGETHER

IN SEVERAL SO-CALLED CODE

CODESEES, AND THERE IS ONE

IN THE VATICAN AND THERE IS

ONE, I BELIEVE, IN

WASHINGTON.

AND THESE ARE THE MOST

AUTHENTIC.

BUT YOU'VE ALSO GOT SOME

FRAGMENTS THAT PEOPLE HAVE

PUT TOGETHER, ETC.

NOW, WHEN THEY GO BACK TO

THOSE BEST DOCUMENTS, THEY

FIND THAT MARK'S GOSPEL

STOPS.

NOW, WHAT HAPPENED?

WHEN PEOPLE HAD THESE

FRAGMENTS BACK IN THE OLD

DAYS, THEY THOUGHT, WELL,

I'LL IMPROVE ON IT A LITTLE

BIT.

BECAUSE, AFTER ALL, PAUL GOT

BIT BY A SNAKE ON MALTA AND

HE DIDN'T GET INJURED, SO

WHY DON'T I PUT IN SOMETHING

ABOUT HANDLING SNAKES.

SO I'LL PUT SOMETHING ELSE

BECAUSE THOSE MIRACLES

HAPPENED AND HE JUST WANTS

TO MAKE SURE IT IS IN THE

BIBLE.

SO THIS SCRIBE WRITES ALL OF

THAT DOWN.

NOW THAT PART IS NOT THERE.

WE COULD SAVE A LOT OF

PEOPLE GETTING BITTEN BY

RATTLESNAKES IF THEY REALIZE

THAT WASN'T PART OF THE

ORIGINAL TEXT.

THIS DRINKING POISON AND

STUFF IS NOT BIBLICAL.

I BELIEVE THE BIBLE.

BUT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WE

DON'T HAVE THE AUTOGRAPHS.

SO YOU TAKE THE BEST

KNOWLEDGE YOU CAN GET -- AND

I HAD A COURSE IN THIS,

THANK GOODNESS -- IT WAS ONE

OF THE BEST COURSES IN

SEMINARY -- WHERE YOU

ACTUALLY GO BACK TO THE

GREEK AND YOU SAY, THIS IS

AN ADDITION.

YOU CAN TELL, IT JUST JUMPS

OUT AT YOU.

THIS IS AN ADDITION BY SOME

SCRIBE.

THE LAST PART OF MARK IS AN

ADDITION BY SOME SCRIBE.

AND THE BETTER MANUSCRIPTS

DON'T HAVE IT.

SO NOBODY IS TRYING TO PLAY

GAMES OR DECEIVE ANYBODY,

BUT IT STOPPED AFTER

ABOUT -- WHATEVER VERSE IT

IS.

THE REST OF IT IS AN

ADDITION.

AND THE BEST MANUSCRIPTS,

AND YOU CAN READ A GOOD

BIBLE THAT WILL SAY IT

DOESN'T APPEAR IN THIS

MANUSCRIPT OR THAT

MANUSCRIPT.

THE CATHOLICS USE SOMETHING

CALLED THE VALGATE, BUT THAT

ISN'T AS OLD AS THE GREEK

MANUSCRIPTS.

Terry: EVEN LATER.

Pat: THE BIGGEST THING

IS I BELIEVE IN JESUS.

AND JESUS IS GOD.

AND I BELIEVE IN THE WORD OF

GOD.

BUT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND

THAT, YOU KNOW, AS SCHOLARS

YOU RECOGNIZE WHAT IS THERE

AND YOU DEAL WITH IT.

THAT HASN'T HURT MY FAITH

ANY.

TRUST ME, THAT PART ABOUT

GETTING BIT BY SNAKES AND

DRINKING POISON AND ALL OF

THAT WASN'T IN THE

ORIGINAL.

Terry: BUT HOW

WONDERFUL THAT HE IS SEEKING

LIKE THIS.

Pat: I'M GLAD HE IS

SEEKING, BUT DON'T TELL ME

YOUR A BIBLICAL SCHOLAR.

YOU'RE NOT A SCHOLAR.

YOU'RE A SEEKER.

Terry: VIC SAYS, "MY

FRIEND GOT BAPTIZED OVER 40

YEARS AGO AND SAYS HE IS A

CHRISTIAN, BUT DOESN'T ACT

LIKE ONE.

HE LIVES LIKE THERE IS NO

MORMS MORALS OR SPIRITUAL

GUIDELINES.

HE SAYS HE IS OKAY BECAUSE

HE GOT BAPTIZED.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: I KNOW PEOPLE

BELIEVE IN BEING BAPTIZED,

BUT THE BIBLE INDICATED THAT

BAPTISM WAS EVIDENCE OF AN

INNER GRACE.

YOU FIND THE LORD, AND

YOU'RE BURIED WITH CHRIST IN

BAPTISM AND RAISED IN UNISON

LIFE.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE'RE DEAD

TO SIN, HOW CAN WE LIVE ANY

LONGER THEREIN?

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID HIS

CONDEMNATION IS JUST -- IN

OTHER WORDS, HE IS GOING TO

HELL.

I'M SORRY, BAPTISM IS NOT

GOING TO GET YOU INTO

HEAVEN.

ONLY FAITH.

Terry: THIS IS STACEY

WHO SAYS, "I STARTED GOING

TO A NEW CHURCH EARLIER THIS

YEAR.

BUT LATER I'VE BEEN

STRUGGLING.

I FEEL OUT OF PLACE.

I HAVE YET TO MAKE FRIENDS,

AND, FRANKLY, I DON'T FEEL

WELCOME BY THE

CONGREGATION.

I ENJOY THE PREACHING, BUT I

CAN DOWNLOAD THE SERMONS THE

NEXT DAY.

DO YOU THINK THAT IS

SUFFICIENT?"

Pat: YOU NEED TO GET

TOGETHER WITH CHRISTIANS.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THAT

CONGREGATION, GO FIND

ANOTHER ONE.

Terry: AND YOU CAN'T

ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL THE

CONGREGATION SWELLS TO YOUR

PRESENCE, YOU HAVE TO

ACTIVATE AND GO TO BIBLE

STUDIES --

Pat: SOME ARE ACCEPTING

AND FRIENDLY, AND SOME

AREN'T.

IF YOU DON'T FEEL

COMFORTABLE, FIND ONE WHERE

YOU'RE COMFORTABLE.

THERE HAS GOT TO BE MORE

THAN ONE GOOD PREACHER IN

YOUR TOWN.

THERE MUST BE A FEW OTHERS

SOMEWHERE.

ALL RIGHT.

SEARCH.

SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM

YOU.

IMAGINE CLINGING TO LIFE

WRAPPED AROUND A UTILITY

POLE.

WELL, THAT'S JUST WHAT

HAPPENED TO A TAXI DRIVER IN

THAILAND WHO LOST EVERYTHING

HE OWNED IN A FLOOD.

HERE IS HOW HE GOT THE HELP

HE NEEDED FROM CBN'S

DISASTER RELIEF TEAM.

IT WAS LIKE A TSUNAMI.

MY WHOLE HOUSE WAS SUBMERGED

IN WATER.

Reporter: PROKID WILL

NEVER FORGET THE NIGHT

FLOODWATERS RUSHED INTO HIS

VILLAGE IN THAILAND.

ALL I COULD DO WAS HANG

ON TO A UTILITY POLE.

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE

ELECTROCUTED.

Reporter: THE NEXT

MORNING PROKID WAS RESCUED

AND TAKEN TO A TEMPORARY

SHELTER.

THERE CBN DISASTER RELIEF?

TEAMS PROVIDED HIM AND OTHER

FLOOD VICTIMS FOOD, CLEAN

WATER, AND MEDICINE.

HE DISCOVERED THAT HIS HOUSE

HAD BEEN BADLY DAMAGED BY

THE FLOODING.

HE COULDN'T AFFORD TO PAY

FOR THE NEEDED REPAIRS TO

HIS HOUSE.

I LOST ALL OF MY

POSSESSIONS.

THE ROOF HAD SO MANY HOLES

IN IT, THAT WHEN IT RAINED I

WOULD GET SOAKED.

IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL.

Reporter: SO CBN

PROVIDED THE BUILDING

MATERIALS NEEDED TO REPLACE

THE ROOF.

WE ALSO INSTALLED A NEW

DOOR, WINDOW, AND REBUILT

HIS SMALL BATHROOM.

PROKID WAS SO TOUCHED BY

WHAT WE HAD DONE, THAT HE

PRAYED WITH A CBN STAFF

MEMBER TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

GOD TOOK CARE OF

EVERYTHING.

IF CBN HAD NOT HELPED ME, MY

LIFE WOULD STILL BE VERY

DIFFICULT.

I AM DEEPLY TOUCHED AND VERY

HAPPY.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Terry: THE LOVE OF GOD

SCHEDULED.

IT TOUCHED AND CHANGED

PROKID'S HEART.

IT WASN'T JUST HIS HOUSE,

HIS PHYSICAL HOUSE, THAT

NEEDED FIXING.

HE NEEDED TO KNOW THERE WAS

A GOD WHO LOVED HIM AND

THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

FRESH LIFE IN HIM.

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU PROVIDED ALL OF

THAT, THE OPPORTUNITY TO

REPAIR HIS HOME, TO TOUCH

HIS HEART, AND TO GIVE HIM A

HOPE AND A FUTURE.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, WHAT A GREAT DAY TO

GO TO YOUR PHONE.

THOUSAND OF US ARE OUT TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE

LOVE OF CHRIST.

SO CALL THAT TOLL-FREE

NUMBER AND ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH

MAKES YOU A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

THERE ARE LOTS OF CLUB

LEVELS YOU CAN EXAMINE.

BUT DO SOMETHING TODAY TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU BY SENDING YOU

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT, HOW

GOD SPEAKS TO PEOPLE IN

DREAMS."

CALL NOW AND WE'LL GET THIS

OUT TO YOU RIGHT AWAY.

PAT?

Pat: STILL AHEAD, A

CHILLING PAGE FROM AMERICA'S

CIVIL RIGHTS HISTORY.

WHEN THE BOMB WENT OFF

OFF -- WE'D ALWAYS BEEN TOLD

IF THERE WAS A BOMB OR

ANYBODY SHOOTS IN THE HOUSE,

TO HIT THE FLOOR.

I NEVER FORGET HIM SAYING IF

I HELD ON TO THE HATE, IT

WOULD DESTROY ME.

Pat: TWO SISTERS RECALL

GROWING UP WITH THE GENTLE

GIANT OF DYNAMITE HILL, WHEN

WE COME BACK

Terry: THE SISTERS

YOU'RE ABOUT TO MEET GREW UP

WITH A RING-SIDE SEAT FOR

SOME OF THE MOST DRAMATIC

EVENTS UNFOLDING IN CIVIL

RIGHTS HISTORY.

BUT AT THE TIME, THEY DIDN'T

EVEN REALIZE IT.

TO THEM, THE MAN AT THE

CENTER OF IT ALL WAS SIMPLY

THEIR DADDY.

Reporter: CIVIL RIGHTS

ATTORNEY ARTHUR SHORES HAS

BEEN CALLED ALABAMA'S DRUM

MAJOR FOR JUSTICE.

HIS DAUGHTERS, HELEN AND

BARBARA, HAVE WRITTEN A BOOK

CALLED "THE GENTLE GIANT OF

DYNAMITE HILL."

THEY DETAILED THEIR FATHER'S

WORK IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS

MOVEMENT.

MY FATHER WAS ALWAYS

KNOWN FOR HIS KINDNESS.

HE WAS ALWAYS VERY HUMBLE,

AND A VERY SUMMARY

SOFT-SPOKEN, GENTLEMAN.

WHEN HE TALKED, PEOPLE

WOULD LISTEN.

HE WAS A GREAT NEGOTIATOR.

HE WAS ONE WHO COULD BRING

PEOPLE TOGETHER AT A TABLE

AND TALK THINGS OUT AND WORK

THINGS OUT FOR THEM.

SO HE WAS GENTLE, YET HE WAS

A GIANT IN MY ESTIMATION.

Reporter: ARTHUR SHORES

FIRST MADE A NAME FOR

HIMSELF IN THE 1950s, WHEN

HE TOOK ON A POLICE

BRUTALITY CASE AND WON.

BY THE '60s, HE WAS DR.

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING'S

ATTORNEY.

WE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE

COMING TO THE HOUSE THAT WE

NEVER REALIZED AT THAT TIME

THAT WE HAD A SEAT RIGHT AT

THE FIRST PLACE IN HISTORY,

OF ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO

WERE COMING THROUGH AND THE

CASES THAT HE HAD.

Reporter: IN 1963,

SHORES REPRESENTED VIVIENNE

MALONE IN DAVID HOOD IN A

COURT CASE AGAINST THE

UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA.

HE MADE HIS FAMOUS STAND

IN THE SCHOOLHOUSE DOOR AND

WAS ASKED TO STEP ASIDE.

BUT BECAUSE OF THE EFFORTS

AND EVERYTHING, THEY WERE

ENROLLED AT THE UNIVERSITY.

HE SAID THAT WAS ONE OF THE

HIGH POINTS OF HIS CAREER.

Reporter: ALONG WITH

THESE CASES CAME THREATS

AGAINST HIM AND HIS FAMILY.

WE WOULD GET THE

THREATENING PHONE CALLS,

THREATENING LETTERS.

ONE THING THAT I REMEMBER MY

FATHER ALWAYS DOING -- HE

WAS A VERY SPIRITUAL MAN.

WE WOULD ALWAYS GO IN AND

PRAY.

Reporter: THEIR

NEIGHBORHOOD BECOME KNOWN AS

"DYNAMITE HILL."

IT GOT THE NAME BECAUSE

THERE WERE ZONING LAWS IN

THE EARLY '30s AND '40s,

WHERE BLACKS COULD ONLY LIVE

ON THE EAST SIDE OF CENTER

STREET, AND NOT THE WEST

SIDE.

Reporter: BUT FOR

BLACKS WHO TRIED TO MOVE

INTO HOMES ON THE WHITE SIDE

OF THE STREET --

USUALLY BEFORE THEY GOT

READY TO MOVE INTO THE

HOUSE, THE HOUSE WAS BOMBED

OR THEY WOULDN'T GET A

CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY

AFTER THEY SPENT MONEY TO

BUILD A HOME THERE.

THAT HAPPENED TO 50 OR MORE

HOUSES IN THIS AREA.

SO IT GOT THE NAME "DYNAMITE

HILL," BECAUSE THE HOUSES

THAT WERE BOMBED WERE ALL IN

AND AROUND AND STRAIGHT UP

THIS HILL.

Reporter: THE SHORES'

HOME WAS HIT TWICE.

BARBARA, WHO STILL LIVES IN

THEIR CHILDHOOD HOME,

REMEMBERS SEEING HER HOUSE

AFTER THE FIRST BOMBING.

ONCE WE GOT TO THE HOUSE,

I SAW ONE END OF THE HOUSE

REALLY JUST SORT OF BLOWN

UP.

THE GARAGE DOORS WERE GONE.

EVERY WER WINDOW IN THE

HOUSE WAS BLOWN OUT.

WHEN WE CAME IN, WE SAW THAT

MY FATHER WAS OKAY.

I WENT RUNNING OUT IN THE

BACKYARD AND FOUND A

NEIGHBOR WHO WAS COVERING

SOMETHING UP.

AND IT HAPPENED TO BE MY

FAVORITE DOG THAT WAS KILLED

IN THE BOMBING.

Reporter: BARBARA TOLD

HER FATHER SHE HATED THE

PEOPLE WHO KILLED HER DOG.

HE SAID, WE NEED TO

PRAY.

YOU NEED TO ASK GOD FOR

FORGIVENESS.

I'LL NEVER FORGET HIM SAYING

IF I HELD ON TO THE HATE, IT

WOULD DESTROY ME.

AND I DIDN'T WANT THAT TO

HAPPEN.

HE SAID, YOU HAVE TO LET IT

GO, AND I DID.

Reporter: A WEEK AND A

HALF LATER, THEIR HOME WAS

BOMBED AGAIN.

WE WERE ALL HERE, MY

MOTHER, MY FATHER AND

MYSELF.

WHEN THE BOMB WENT OFF, WE

HAD ALWAYS BEEN TOLD IF A

BOMB OR ANYBODY SHOOTS IN

THE HOUSE, TO HIT THE

FLOOR.

SO I WAS CRAWLING FROM THE

KITCHEN TO THE LIVING ROOM,

WHERE MY FATHER WAS.

AND I SAW THAT HE WAS OKAY.

I RAN INTO MY MOTHER'S ROOM

AND FOUND MY MOTHER

UNCONSCIOUS.

Reporter: HER MOTHER

WAS HOSPITALIZED BUT MADE A

FULL RECOVERY.

HOWEVER, THOSE MEMORIES

STILL HAUNT BARBARA.

THOSE ARE MEMORIES THAT

WILL ALWAYS STAY WITH ME.

FOR THE LONGEST I COULD

ALMOST CLOSE MY EYES AND

SMELL THE SCENT OF THE

DYNAMITE.

Reporter: BARBARA HAS

HAD A SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN

SOCIAL WORK.

HELEN FOLLOWED IN HER

FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS AND GOT A

LAW DEGREE.

SHE NOW SERVES AS A CIRCUIT

COURT JUDGE IN THE 10TH

DISTRICT OF ALABAMA.

SHE SAYS HER FATHER SERVED

AS A ROLE MODEL FOR HER AND

MANY OTHER YOUNG

AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

I'M PROUD THAT HE HAD THE

COURAGE AND THE FORTITUDE TO

TAKE ON CIVIL RIGHTS CASES

LONG BEFORE WE HEARD OF

CIVIL RIGHTS IN THE '60s.

EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THREATS

TO HIS LIFE, EVEN IN THE

MIDST OF THREATS TO HIS

FAMILY, HE CONTINUED TO TAKE

ON VOTING RIGHTS CASES,

CASES THAT WOULD LEAD TO THE

EQUALIZATION OF TEACHERS'

SALARIES AND DESEGREGATION

OF THE SCHOOLS.

Reporter: THEY SAY

THEIR FATHER'S SPIRITUAL

STRENGTH IS WHAT KEPT THEM

GOING IN HIS FIGHT FOR

JUSTICE.

HIS FAITH WAS

UNWAVERING.

AS FAR BACK AS I CAN

REMEMBER, MY FATHER MODELED

FOR US HIS FAITHFULNESS.

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED,

THE BOMBING, HE NEVER LOST

HIS FAITH.

AND HIS BELIEF THAT GOD

WOULD BRING HIM AND HIS

FAMILY THROUGH ALL OF THIS.

Terry: AN INCREDIBLE

STORY.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO READ MORE

ABOUT ARTHUR SHORES, BARBARA

AND HELEN'S BOOK IS CALLED

"THE GENTLE GIANT OF

DYNAMITE HILL."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

WHAT A GREAT READ.

Pat: THE ABILITY OF

THOSE WONDERFUL PEOPLE TO

FORGIVE IS JUST

EXTRAORDINARY.

THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN FILLED

WITH HATE, AND THEY'RE NOT.

THEY HAD FORGIVENESS, AND

THAT'S WHY THEY WON.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM ISAIAH 49:

"FOR I WILL CONTEND WITH

THOSE WHO CONDEMN YOU, AND I

WILL SAVE YOUR CHILDREN."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

TOMORROW, THE GREATEST

FEMALE ATHLETE IN THE 20th

CENTURY, JACKIE JOYNER

CURSEY TELLS US WHAT IT IS

LIKE TO WIN SIX OLYMPIC

MEDALS.

FOR TERRY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS YOU.
