The 700 Club - Feb 20, 2014

CBN Sports sits down with this track & field legend Jackie Joyner-Kersee. Plus, Jason Freeman dominated opponents easily, but overcoming a fear of failure and the stigma of an infamous family connection became his greatest battle. Read Transcript


COMING UP UP...SHE'S A

THREE-TIME GOLD MEDAL

WINNER, AND THE GREATEST

FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE 20th

CENTURY.

WE'LL SIT DOWN WITH OLYMPIC

LEGEND JACKIE JOYNER

KERSEE.

AND THEN HE IS A FIGHTER --

THE ONLY THING THAT COULD

BEAT ME WAS THE OTHER GUY.

THIS GRANDFATHER WAS A

KILLER.

AND IT WAS TO BE KEPT

QUIET, UNDER A RUG.

THE INNER BATTLE OF

CHARLIE MANSON THE THIRD.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

DO YOU FLY MUCH IN

AIRPLANES?

Terry: A GOOD DEAL.

Pat: DO THEY MAKE YOU

TAKE YOUR SHOES OFF?

Terry: WELL, WHEN YOU

GO THROUGH THE SECURITY.

Pat: ISN'T IT A PAIN IN

THE NECK?

Terry: YES, IT PRETTY

MUCH IS.

Pat: AND THEY MAKE SURE

YOU DON'T HAVE JUST A TINY

BIT OF LIQUID.

Terry: YOU HAVE TO SHOW

WHAT YOU DO HAVE.

IT HAS TO BE PLASTIC-BAGGED,

AND YOU HAVE TO PULL IT OUT

AND SHOW THEM.

ACTUALLY, WITH ALL THAT HAS

HAPPENED, I'M OKAY WITH

THAT.

Pat: I'M NOT OKAY WITH

IT.

I THINK IT IS A PAIN IN THE

NECK.

THE FRIENDLY SKIES MAY NOT

BE FRIENDLY.

I NOTICE THAT THE NUMBER OF

PRIVATE AIRCRAFT IS

BEGINNING TO PICK BACK UP

AGAIN BECAUSE EXECUTIVES --

THEY'VE GOT THESE NEW GULF

STREAM 650s, THAT GO 7,000

MILES WITHOUT BEING

REFUELED.

Terry: WOW!

WELL, IT IS SO MUCH EASIER

TO TRAVEL THAT WAY.

Pat: $65 MILLION.

I READ SOMETHING IN THE

NEWS, BY THE WAY, YOU KNOW

MENSA, THE ORGANIZATION FOR

REAL BRAINS --

Terry: UH-HUH.

AS OPPOSED TO THE FAKE

ONES.

Pat: YEAH.

THEY TOOK IN A 3-YEAR-OLD

GIRL IN ARIZONA.

THAT CHILD HAS ALREADY

TAUGHT HERSELF HOW TO SPEAK

SPANISH --

Terry: A 3?

Pat: AT 3.

AND SHE HAS AN I.Q. OF

99.999 PERCENTILE.

THEY TOOK HER INTO MENSA AT

THREE YEARS OLD.

Terry: IT WOULD BE HARD

TO RAISE A CHILD LIKE THAT.

Pat: DAUNTLY.

WDAUNTING.

ALL RIGHT.

HOMELAND SECURITY IS SAYING

LOOK OUT, AND SHOE BOMBS AND

LIQUIDS AND ALL OF THAT

STUFF.

Terry: THE LATEST

GOVERNMENT WARNING COMES AS

CONCERNS ARE GROWING THAT

SYRIA COULD SOON BECOME A

SAFE HAVEN FOR TERRORISTS.

CAITLIN BURKE BRINGS US AN

ALARMING STORY.

Reporter: FOR THE

SECOND TIME IN LESS THAN

THREE WEEKS, THE GOVERNMENT

IS WARNING ABOUT POTENTIAL

ATTEMPTS TO SMUGGLE

EXPLOSIVES ON TO AIRPLANES.

I THINK AVIATION SYMBOL

SYMBOLIZES THE IDEA YOU CAN

TAKE DOWN A PLANE AND KILL

POTENTIALLY HUNDREDS OF

PEOPLE ON THE PLANE AND ON

THE GROUND, WHICH IS VERY

APPEALING TO THEM.

Reporter: THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY SAID ON WEDNESDAY

THAT TERRORISTS ARE WORKING

ON SHOE BOMBS, EXPLOSIVES,

AND EXPLOSIVES HIDDEN IN

COSMETIC CONTAINERS.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE MORE

ACTIVITY, MORE SCREENING,

MORE RANDOM QUESTIONS TO

INDIVIDUALS.

Reporter: AS SECURITY

INCREASES, TRAVELLERS CAN

EXPECT MORE PAT-DOWNS, AND

EXTRA SCRUTINY OF THEIR

SHOES AND CARRY-ON ITEMS.

THIS COMES AS SECURITY

OFFICIALS KNOWLEDGE ANOTHER

GROWING THREAT: al-QAEDA'S

INCREASING PRESENCE IN

SYRIA.

MILITANTS LINKED TO THE

TERROR NETWORK ARE WORKING

THEIR WAY INTO THE REBEL

FORCES THERE AND PUSHING OUT

MODERATES.

SYRIA COULD POTENTIALLY

BECOME A SAFE HAVEN FOR

TERRORISTS, TRAINING GROUNDS

FOR PLOTS AGAINST THE U.S.

JAMES CLAPPER TOLD CONGRESS

LAST MONTH THERE ARE AN

ESTIMATED 26,000 ISLAMIC

EXTREMISTS IN SYRIA, AND

ABOUT 7,000 OF THEM ARE

FOREIGNORS.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT IS

EXAMINING ITS OPTIONS IN

SYRIA, INCLUDING DRONE

STRIKES OF REBEL FACTIONS

WHO MIGHT LATER TRY TO

ATTACK THE U.S.

BUT THE CRITICS SAY THAT

TERRORISTS WON'T BE SO

STRONG IF PRESIDENT OBAMA

HAD RESPONDED TO THE

CRISIS.

IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THIS

SITUATION WAS PREDICTED AND

PREDICTABLE, AND THE STAKES

HERE, FRANKLY, ARE

INCREDIBLY HIGH.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, CAITLIN.

IT IS A SAD THING, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, THAT WE HAVE

A PRESIDENT WHO DOESN'T DIG

FOREIGN POLICY, AND WHEN HE

DOES, HE DOESN'T WANT TO DO

ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

HE HAD A RED LINE IN SYRIA.

AND HE SAID IF THEY CROSS

THAT LINE, WE'LL TAKE

ACTION.

THEY CROSSED IT, AND HE

DIDN'T TAKE ANY ACTION.

THEY SAID, WELL, WE'RE GOING

TO MAKE A DEAL, AND THE

RUSSIANS MEDIATED A DEAL TO

GET RID OF THE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS, AND NOW THE SYRIANS

ARE NOT DOING IT, AND OBAMA

HAS DONE NOTHING.

AND HE HAS ALL KINDS OF

PEOPLE INSIDE OF SYRIA NOW

THAT THEY COULD HAVE DEALT

WITH EARLIER, AND THEY HAVE

DONE NOTHING.

AND THE UNITED STATES IS

LOOKING LIKE A FLOUNDERING,

HELPLESS, BEACHED WHALE,

INSTEAD OF THE NUMBER ONE

NATION ON THE FACE OF THE

EARTH.

WE HAVE BAD LEADERSHIP.

REMEMBER ERIC DIRKSON SAYS

WE'RE NOT SICK, WE'RE JUST

BADLY MANAGED.

AN EXPERT ON ISLAM IS GOING

TO BE JOINING US IN A FEW

MINUTES.

RAYMOND IBRAHIM WILL TELL US

ABOUT THE BRUTAL PERSECUTION

OF CHRISTIANS BY MUSLIMS.

FIRST, AS WE WARNED YOU

YESTERDAY, THERE HAS BEEN

STILL MORE BRUTAL VIOLENCE

IN UKRAINE.

THEY HAD A PEACE BROKERED,

THEY THOUGHT, AND THAT PEACE

HAS ALREADY BEEN BROKEN.

THEY'RE STARTING TO SHOOT

AGAIN.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

AGAIN FROM WASHINGTON.

PAT, FIERCE FIGHTING

ERUPTED AGAIN BETWEEN

ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTORS

AND POLICE IN KIEV TODAY.

THE CLASHES CAME AFTER A

TRUCE FELL THROUGH.

AT LEAST 28 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

KILLED.

PROTESTORS STORMED POLICE

BARRICADES IN KIEV, DESPITE

GOVERNMENT CALLS FOR A

TRUCE.

THE UNREST IS SPREADING

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

IN THE WESTERN CITY OF LUSK,

THE PROTESTORS DRAGGED THE

REGIONAL DIRECTOR OUT OF HIS

OFFICE AND HE WAS HANDCUFFED

TO A POLE AND FORCED TO SIGN

A LETTER OF RESIGNATION.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

CONDEMNED THE VIOLENCE,

WARNING THERE WILL BE

CONSEQUENCES IF IT

CONTINUES.

THE KEYSTONE X.L. PIPELINE

IS FACING ANOTHER ROAD

BLOCK.

A JUDGE IN ALASKA STRUCK

DOWN THE LAW.

THE JUDGE RULED THE LAW

IMPROPERLY GAVE AN ENERGY

COMPANY POWER TO FORCE LAND

OWNERS TO SELL THEIR

PROPERTY FOR THE PROJECT.

EMINENT DOMAIN POWERS SHOULD

HAVE BEEN MADE BY THE

NEBRASKA PUBLIC SERVICE

COMMISSION INSTEAD OF THE

GOVERNMENT.

THE STATE WILL APPEAL THE

RULING.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ADMITS THE

GOVERNMENT APPROVAL PROCESS

HAS GONE ON FOR A LONG

TIME.

ENVIRONMENTALIST GROUPS

STEADFASTLY OPPOSE THE

PROJECT.

WELL, SCIENTISTS AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS HAVE

DEVELOPED A METHOD TO GROW

HUMAN LUNGS IN A LAB.

AS LORI JOHNSON REPORTS,

THIS COULD BE A BREAKTHROUGH

FOR MANY PEOPLE WAITING FOR

A TRANSPLANT.

Reporter: GROWING LUNGS

IN A LAB MAY BE THE BEST AND

NEWEST HOPE FOR LUNG

TRANSPLANTS.

SINCE SO MANY OF THE DONATED

LUNGS ARE TOO DAMAGED TO BE

TRANS PLATED. TRANS-- TRANSPLANTED.

WE REMOVED ALL OF THE

CELLS, ALL OF THE MATERIALS

THAT WERE IN IT, AND WE LEFT

THE SKELETON OF THE LUNG.

IT IS JUST THE PIECES OF THE

LUNG THAT ARE NO CELLS.

THAT'S WHY IT LOOKS SO WHITE

AND PRETTY AND THERE IS NO

BLOOD IN IT.

AND THEN WE ADDED BACK CELLS

FROM ANOTHER LUNG THAT

COULDN'T BE USED FOR

TRANSPLANT, BUT STILL HAD

VIABLE CELLS IN IT.

Reporter: AT FIRST, THE

PROCESS OF GROWING A LUNG

TOOK FOUR MONTHS.

BUT MICHAEL RIDDLE, A

MEDICAL STUDENT WORKING ON

THE PROJECT, FIGURED OUT A

WAY TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS

TO JUST THREE DAYS.

HE IS THE ONE THAT

ACTUALLY WENT HOME AND

BUILT, USING -- AND I'M NOT

KIDDING -- A FISH TANK HE

WENT AND BOUGHT FROM A PET

STORE IS WHAT HE USED.

Reporter: THE END

RESULT IS FASCINATING.

IF YOU LISTEN CLOSELY.

YOU CAN ACTUALLY HEAR THE

THUMP, THUMP OF AIR MOVING

IN AND OUT OF THE

LABORATORY-GROWN LUNGS.

SCIENTISTS SAY IT WILL BE

FIVE OR 10 YEARS BEFORE

LAB-GROWN LUNGS ARE READY TO

SAVE HUMAN LIVES.

THE FIRST STEP IS TO

SUCCESSFUL TRANSPLANT

LAB-GROWN LUNGS IN ANIMALS.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: ONCE MORE, OUR

HATS ARE OFF TO TEXAS.

THE LONE STAR STATE HAS DONE

IT AGAIN.

TEXAS IS BECOMING THE MOST

IMPORTANT STATE IN THE

NATION.

AND DRAWING IN PEOPLE FROM

CALIFORNIA, PEOPLE FROM ALL

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

AND HERE THEY ARE NOW

GROWING A LUNG.

ISN'T THAT AMAZING?

CONGRATULATIONS.

JOHN?

IF YOU'RE OVER 60, LISTEN

UP.

YOU BETTER GET OFF YOUR DUFF

IF YOU WANT TO STAY HEALTHY

AS YOU GET OLDER.

TOO MUCH SITTING COULD

SERIOUSLY INCREASE YOUR

CHANCES OF A DISABILITY,

EVEN IF YOU'RE ALSO

EXERCISING.

THE RESEARCHERS SAY FOR

EVERY HOUR THOSE OLDER

PEOPLE SIT, THEY RAISE THEIR

CHANCE OF GETTING A

DISABILITY BY NEARLY 50%.

"U.S.A. TODAY" POINTS OUT

RESEARCH HAS LINKED TOO MUCH

SITTING TO INCREASED RISK OF

HEART FAILURE AND TYPE 2

DIABETES AND DEATH FROM

CANCER, HEART DISEASE, AND

STROKE.

PAT, YOU'RE ONE HEALTHY AND

ACTIVE GUY.

WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND DOING

FROM BEING SEDENTARY?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

RIDING A HORSE COUNTS AS

SITTING OR NOT.

THE WAY I RIDE THEM, IT IS

RIGHT MUCH EXERCISE.

Terry: I WOULD SAY SO.

Pat: HERE WE'RE

SITTING.

WE COULD DO THIS PROGRAM ON

A TREADMILL, BUT I DON'T

THINK THAT WOULD BE TOO

SWIFT.

SO WE'RE SITTING BEHIND A

DESK AND I KIND OF LIKE IT

THAT WAY.

TERRY?

Terry: I'M WITH YOU.

UP NEXT, THE MOST DANGEROUS

PLACES IN THE WORLD TO ARE A

CHRISTIAN.

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHICH

COUNTRIES TOP THE LIST WHEN

WE RETURN.

*

Pat: YOU KNOW, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, CHRISTIANITY

IS THE LARGEST, FASTEST

GROWING RELIGION IN THE

WORLD.

IT IS NOT ISLAM.

IT IS NOT HINDUISM.

IT IS NOT BUDDHISM.

IT IS CHRISTIANITY.

BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ABOUT IT

IN THE NEWS MEDIA.

THE PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS, WHICH IS RAMPANT

ALL OVER THE WORLD,

ESPECIALLY IN SO-CALLED

MUSLIM COUNTRIES.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: MORE PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD EMBRACE

CHRISTIANITY THAN ANY OTHER

RELIGION.

AND CHRISTIANS ARE THE MOST

PERSECUTED.

THEY FACE BEATINGS,

IMPRISONMENT, AND EVEN

DEATH.

AND IT'S NOT JUST HAPPENING

IN ISLAMIC COUNTRIES.

RADICAL ISLAM COULD FALL

OFF THE PLANET TOMORROW, AND

CHRISTIANS WOULD NOT BE

SAFE.

Reporter: IT IS COMING

FROM RELIGIOUS MILITANTS

SEEKING TO VIOLENTLY ADVANCE

THEIR RADICAL IDEOLOGY.

FOR EXAMPLE, LAST MONTH, IN

THE BUDDHIST NATION OF SRI

LANKA, A MOB ATTACKED TWO

CHRISTIAN PRAYER CENTERS,

SMASHING WINDOWS AND

DESTROYING BIBLES.

NORTH KOREA IS THE WORST

OFFENDER.

FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS, IT

HAS TOPPED THE ANNUAL WATCH

LIST OF PERSECUTING

COUNTRIES.

OVERALL, IT IS MUSLIM

COUNTRIES WHERE CHRISTIANS

FACE THE GREATEST LIST.

IN 36 OF THE TOP 50

COUNTRIES ON OUR WORLD WATCH

LIST, ISLAMIC EXTREMISM IS

THE MAIN DRIVER.

IT IS VERY DANGEROUS TO BE A

CHRISTIAN IN A COUNTRY WHERE

ISLAMIC FAITH IS PRESENT.

Pat: WE HAVE WITH US A

VERY DEAR FRIEND, AUTHOR AND

CONTRIBUTOR TO OUR NEWS

DEPARTMENT, RAYMOND

IBRAHIM.

HE HAS A BOOK THAT I THOUGHT

WAS FASCINATING, CALLED

"CRUCIFIED AGAIN."

IT IS AVAILABLE IN

BOOKSTORES OR AMAZON.

RAYMOND, GOOD TO HAVE YOU

BACK.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME

BACK, PAT.

THANK YOU.

Pat: WHY DO THE MUSLIMS

HATE CHRISTIANS SO BAD?

YOU GREW UP IN EGYPT.

YOU UNDERSTAND THIS.

YOU SPEAK ARABIC FLUENTLY,

AND YOU'RE A SCHOLAR OF THIS

HISTORICAL TREND.

WHAT'S THE DEAL?

THE DEAL IS IT GOES BACK

TO THE DAWN OF ISLAM.

IF ANYONE TAKES THE TIME TO

EXPLORE THE SCRIPTURES OF

ISLAM AND THE QURAN, YOU

WILL FIND THERE IS A VERY

SUPREMACIST ELEMENT TO

ISLAM.

MOHAMMED'S WHOLE POINT WAS

TO EMPOWER HIS FOLLOWERS,

AND TO PUT THEM UP HIGHER

THAN THE IN FE INFIDELS,

WHICH, AMONG THEM, ARE THE

CHRISTIANS.

IT IS ALWAYS AMAZING TO ME.

BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE THINGS

THAT ARE SO WELL-DOCUMENTED,

IT IS THIS FACT: IF YOU

REALLY GO TO THE PRIMARY

HISTORICAL SOURCES, YOU WILL

SEE WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

TODAY HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR

14 CENTURIES, AND IN THE

VERY SAME EXACT PATTERNS.

Pat: YOU KNOW, OBAMA

GOT UP IN THE UNITED NATIONS

AND SAID THIS MAN IS A

PROPHET, AND HE NEEDS TO BE

HONORED AS A PROPHET.

I MEAN, WHAT DOES THIS GUY

DO?

YOU TALK ABOUT MOHAMMED, HE

PREACHED HATE.

AGAIN, THIS IS IT.

WE HAVE FACTS.

WE HAVE REALITY.

THERE WAS A BIG -- IN THE

'60s, THERE WAS A MOVEMENT

IN THE ACADEMIC COMMUNITY

THAT REALLY DISCOUNTED

EVERYTHING WE KNEW ABOUT

ISLAM.

THEY SAID IT WAS A PRODUCT

OF THE ORIENTALISTS, AND

EVERYTHING THEY SAID WAS

WRONG AND THEY STARTED

TARGETED MUSLIMS.

BUT WHAT THEY SAID WAS MUCH

MORE APPLICABLE TO WHAT

WE'RE HEARING COMING FROM

THE IVORY TOWERS ABOUT ISLAM

IS PEACE, ETC.

AND HE AND MANY OTHERS

FOLLOW THAT NARRATIVE, AND

IN THE MEANTIME, THE REALITY

IS WHAT WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

Pat: WHAT ARE THE

COUNTRIES THAT ARE THE WORST

IN TERMS OF PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS?

IT IS VERY INTERESTING.

A WELL-KNOWN HUMAN RIGHTS

ORGANIZATION RECENTLY

DISCUSSED THE ANNUAL REPORT

DISCUSSING THE 50 TOP WORST

COUNTRIES TO BE CHRISTIANS.

41 OR 42 -- BASICALLY 82%

ARE ISLAMIC COUNTRIES.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE TOP 10

WORST COUNTRIES, FOUR OF

THEM ARE THE ONES THAT THE

U.S. HAS LIBERATED AND

BROUGHT DEMOCRACY TO.

AND THIS INCLUDES

AFGHANISTAN, IRAQ, LIBYA, ON

GOING WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

SYRIA.

ALL THESE COUNTRIES THE U.S.

CAME AND TRIED TO BRING

DEMOCRACY AND SO FORTH.

AND WHAT YOU SAW THERE WAS A

DRAMATIC NOSEDIVE, AND THE

CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN

ATTACKED AND PERSECUTED.

Pat: I HAVE A FRIEND

WHO IS A CHRISTIAN FROM

IRAQ.

HE SAID UNDER SADDAM

HUSSEIN, CHRISTIANS DIDN'T

HAVE THAT BAD A DEAL.

THEY PROTECTED THEM.

WHAT IS THE SITUATION IN

IRAQ NOW?

WE SPENT HUGE AMOUNTS OF

MONEY, MAYBE AS MUCH AS A

TRILLION DOLLARS SETTING

THEM FREE.

IN IRAQ, THE MOST

INDIGENOUS GROUP, THE

CHRISTIANS, WELL OVER HALF

OF THAT POPULATED HAVE BEEN

DECIMATED AND ARE GONE, IF

NOT KILLED.

DOZENS OF THEIR CHURCHES

HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.

THIS PARADIGM HAS HAPPENED

EVERYWHERE THAT A SECULAR,

AUTOCRATIC LEADER WAS

OUSTED.

YOU'VE SEEN THE SAME PATTERN

ARISE.

THIS IS WHAT IS SO TROUBLING

WHEN YOU COMPARE IT TO THE

PERSECUTION OF OTHER

NON-MUSLIM COUNTRIES, LET'S

SAY, CAREER, WHICH IS BAD,

AND IT IS THE PRODUCT OF

COMMUNISM, JUST LIKE IN THE

USSR, WHICH WAS PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS AND IT WAS

OVERTHROWN.

AND CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION

ENDED.

IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD, IT

GETS WORSE.

WHY, BECAUSE IT IS PART AND

PARCEL OF ISLAMIZATION AND

THE CULTURE.

Pat: YOU ARE FROM

EGYPT.

NOW, THE MILITARY HAS OUSTED

THE BROTHERHOOD.

TELL US ABOUT THE

BROTHERHOOD.

TELL US ABOUT THE MILITARY.

AND THE UNITED STATES HAS

CONDEMNED THE MILITARY.

WHAT'S THE STORY?

IT IS AMAZING, AND,

AGAIN, IT IS ONE OF THESE

THINGS THAT WERE EXACERBATED

BY THE MAINSTREAM

NARRATIVE.

WHAT HAPPENED IS IN EGYPT,

YOU HAD UP TO 40 MILLION

PEOPLE WENT TO THE STREETS

WANTING THE MORSI GOVERNMENT

OUT, DUE TO ITS CORRUPTION,

AND ITS TRYING TO PUSH AN

ISLAMIC AGENDA ON EVERYONE.

AND THEY ACTUALLY OUSTED HIM

OUT.

IT HAPPENED ON JULY 4th.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE EGYPT'S

JULY 4th.

BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN A

GREAT STORY.

BUT IN THE WEST, IT WAS

EXPRESSED AS A SMALL COUP,

AND THE OVERWHELMING

MAJORITY OF THE EGYPTIANS

DON'T WANT THIS, AND THIS IS

NOT THE TRUTH.

IT IS BECAUSE THE U.S. IS IN

KAHOOTS WITH THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

AND SO IT HAS BEEN

NEUTRALIZED, AT LEAST IN

THAT NATION.

Pat: WHY?

WHY ARE WE LINKED UP WITH

THE BROTHERHOOD?

EGYPT IS WHERE THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD WAS BORN.

EGYPT IS A MUSLIM COUNTRY.

AND NOW THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IS SO HATED AND

IT IS BEING KICKED OUT.

AND SO IN THEIR OWN

HOMELAND, AMONG THEIR OWN

CORELIGION CO-RELIGION

HAPPENED.

AND WE, HERE, IN THE WEST,

ARE BEING SUPPORTIVE OF

THEM.

Pat: OBAMA TAKES

LEADERS OF THEM INTO THE

WHITE HOUSE FOR

CONSULTATION.

YUP.

AND THIS GROUP, EVEN IN

AMERICA WAS A COMPLETELY

BANNED ORGANIZATION.

AND IT IS BANNED IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, AND THE U.S.

STILL WON'T DECLARE IT

BANNED.

Pat: WHAT DO THEY WANT

TO DO?

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

GOAL IS TO RESURRECT THE

CALIPHATE BY CREATING

BASICALLY A UNITED STATES OF

ISLAM, AND THEY CALL IT THAT

AS A PUN.

FROM MOROCCO ALL THE WAY AS

FAR EAST, TO PAKISTAN, AND

SO FORTH, AND THEY WANT TO

UNIFY IT INTO ONE BIG

BLOCK.

THAT MAY SOUND FINE, BUT THE

HISTORICAL MEANING ABOUT THE

CALIPHATE IS AN EXPANSION OF

STATE.

IT REQUIRES MORE LAND.

AND HERE WE'RE SAYING WHY

SHOULDN'T THEY BAN TOGETHER,

AND SO FORTH.

Pat: GEORGE BUSH SAID

ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF

PEACE, AND I STOOD AGAINST

THAT AND I WAS CONDEMNED.

AND PEOPLE SAID YOU DON'T

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

AND I SAID WE ELECTED HIM AS

C.E.O., NOT CHIEF RABBI.

WHAT IS IT?

IT IS NOT A RELIGION OF

PEACE?

IT IS NOT A RELIGION OF

PEACE.

LOOK AGAIN AT THIS REPORT.

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IS

BEING HAPPENED.

AND 82% OF IT IS IN THE

MUSLIM WORLD.

THIS INCLUDES MUSLIM

COUNTRIES THAT ARE OUR

FRIENDS, SAUDI ARABIA, AND

THOSE WHO ARE AGAINST US.

AND THERE ARE POOR MUSLIM

COUNTRIES, AND IT INCLUDES

COUNTRIES THAT HAVE AN

ISLAMIC REGIME, PAKISTAN OR

IRAN.

AND IT INCLUDES COUNTRIES

THAT HAVE DEMOCRACIES, LIKE

IRAQ.

WHAT IS THE COMMON

DENOMINATOR?

IT IS ISLAM.

THERE IS NO ESCAPING THIS.

I CALL IT THE GREAT ELEPHANT

IN THE MUSLIM PERSECUTION

ROOM BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO

ADDRESS IT.

YET, TO ME, WHAT IS MORE EYE

OPENING ABOUT THE NATURE OF

THIS RELIGION THAN WHEN YOU

SEE ALL OF THESE COUNTRIES,

AND YOU SEE ONE COMMON,

PERSISTENT THEME.

Pat: RAYMOND, I

APPRECIATE WHAT YOU'RE

DOING.

IS THIS BOOK STILL

AVAILABLE?

YES, IT IS, ON AMAZON.

Pat: "CRUCIFIED AGAIN,"

YOU REALLY OUGHT TO READ IT,

FOLKS.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

IT IS CALLED "CRUCIFIED

AGAIN," BY RAYMOND IBRAHIM.

THANK YOU.

Pat: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US.

Terry: JACKIE JOYNER

KERSEE TALKS ABOUT WINNING

THE GOLD AND COMING IN

LAST.

I COMPETED MY FIRST RACE

AT THE AGE OF NINE, AND I

FINISHED LAST.

YOU GOING BACK TO THE

DRAWING BOARD AND ASSESS

WHAT WENT WELL FOR YOU AND

WHAT WENT WRONG, BUT STICK

WITH IT.

Terry: A WORLD CHAMPION

RETURNS HOME.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: OVER THE LAST

FEW WEEKS, THE WORLD HAS

BEEN GLUED TO THE TV SET,

WATCHING THE GREATEST

ATHLETES ON THE PLANET GO

FOR THE GOLD.

AT ONE POINT THOSE EYES

WATCHED JACKIE JOYNER

KERSEE, THE FIRST LADY OF

TRACK AND FIELD.

ACROSS FOUR OLYMPIANS, SHE

RACED AS THE PRIDE OF A

NATION.

AS SHE TOLDC%NÑ TOM, TODAY SHE

IS RACING FOR THE NEXT

GENERATION.

Reporter: JACKIE JOYNER

KERSEE IS CALLED THE

GREATEST FEMALE ATHLETE OF

THE 20th CENTURY.

THAT'S JUST A TITLE.

I KNOW HOW HARD I HAD TO

WORK.

IF I KNOW EACH TIME I GO OUT

THERE AND I GIVE MY BEST,

AND THE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE

IN ME, I'M VERY RESPECTFUL

AND VERY THANKFUL FOR US

GETTING TO THAT NEXT LEVEL,

AND THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT TO

ME THAN BEING CALLED THE

WORLD'S GREATEST.

Reporter: SHE IS A

SIX-TIME OLYMPIC MEDALLIST,

AFTER COMPETING IN FOUR

STRAIGHT SUMMER GAMES.

HER 1988 WORLD RECORD STILL

STANDS.

TO MAKE AN OLYMPIC TEAM,

IT IS TOUGH ENOUGH.

BUT SOMETIMES YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO COME OUT ON TOP.

MY FIRST OLYMPIC GAMES, I

WALKED AWAY WITH A SILVER

MEDAL.

BUT I WALKED AWAY KNOWING

THAT I HAVE THE ABILITY TO

DO BETTER.

IT IS THE MENTAL TOUGHNESS I

THINK THAT SEPARATES THE

GOOD, THE BEST, AND THE

GREATEST.

AND SO FOR ME, I WANTED TO

BE THE TOUGHEST ATHLETE OUT

THERE MENTALLY.

Reporter: WHERE DID YOU

GET YOUR MENTAL TOUGHNESS.

PROBABLY GROWING UP IN MY

HOME TOWN OF EAST ST.

LOUIS.

YOU LEARN THE BIBLE SKILLS,

BUT AS YOU EVOLVE AND GROW

UP, SOME OF THOSE SURVIVAL

SKILLS, THAT WAS JUST

PLAYING A TAG GAME WHEN YOU

WERE NINE, 10 YEARS OF AGE,

YOU HAVE TO USE THOSE SKILLS

TO MAKE IT THROUGH LIFE.

Reporter: HER LIFE WAS

NEVER EASY, BEGINNING WITH

TWO OF HER BIGGEST HURTLES.

LOSING MY MOM WHEN I WAS

A FRESHMAN IN COLLEGE.

AND SHE WAS REALLY MY BEST

FRIEND, MY SUPPORT.

IT WAS REALLY ROUGH.

THE SECOND BIGGEST CHALLENGE

IS BEING AN ASTHMATIC AND

TRYING TO BE THE BEST

ATHLETE IN THE WORLD.

YOU KNOW, NOT KNOWING IF I'M

GOING TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE

BECAUSE I'M ALLERGIC TO THE

GRASS.

AND SOME DAYS I LOOK HIKE

LOOK LIKE I SHOULDN'T BE OUT

ON THE TRACK.

Reporter: WHAT DROVE

YOU?

I REALLY WANTED TO BE ONE

OF THE BEST.

I REMEMBER WHEN I COMPETED

IN MY FIRST RACE AT THE AGE

OF NINE, I FINISHED LAST.

I THOUGHT IF I CAME TO

PRACTICE EVERY DAY AND I

COULD GAIN A

HALF-OF-AN-INCH, IT MEANT

THE WORK I WAS DOING WAS

PAID OFF.

Reporter: GOLD

MEDALLISTS THINK LIFE IS

GOING TO CHANGE FOR THEM.

WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST

CHALLENGE ON THEIR REENTRY

BACK HOME?

YOU GO BACK TO THE

DRAWING BOARD.

YOU HAVE TO REALLY REINVENT

YOURSELF.

YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO

STILL WORK HARD.

YOU CAN'T BECOME

COMPLACENT.

ASSESS WHAT WENT WELL FOR

YOU AND WHAT WENT WRONG, BUT

STICK WITH IT.

Reporter: SHE

INTENTIONALLY CARRIED THIS

ONGOING COMMITMENT INTO HER

RETIREMENT.

I NEVER FORGET WHERE I

CAME FROM.

Reporter: JACKIE'S

TRACK AND FUEL SUCCESS

BROUGHT INTERNATIONAL

RECOGNITION AND HER CHOICE

OF OPPORTUNITY.

IT IS NOT ONLY WHAT SHE

CHOSE TO DO, BUT WHERE, THAT

ADDS TO HER GROWING LEGACY.

SHE RETURNED HERE TO HER

HOME TOWN OF EAST ST. LOUIS,

PROVIDING HOPE FOR YOUTH IN

A COMMUNITY THAT HAS ONCE

AGAIN BEEN NAMED AS

AMERICA'S MOST DANGEROUS

CITY.

YOU DEAL WITH VIOLENCE.

YOU DEAL WITH DRUGS.

YOU DEAL WITH PEOPLE THAT

MIGHT BE GOING IN THE WRONG

DIRECTION.

BUT THERE IS A LOT OF LOVE

IN THIS COMMUNITY.

YES, THERE IS SOME

NEGATIVITY, BUT, NO, THE

NEGATIVITY WOULD NOT OVER

SHINE OR OUTLIVE THE GOD

THAT PEOPLE ARGOOD THAT

PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO DO IN

THIS COMMUNITY.

Reporter: THE JACKIE

JOYNER KERSEE CENTER OPENED

IN 2000.

IT PROVIDES ACADEMIC SUPPORT

AND SPORTS VENUES FOR YOUTH

AND FAMILIES.

Reporter: WHAT IS MOST

SATISFYING TO YOU ABOUT

WORKING WITH YOUTH?

IT IS THE SMILES THAT YOU

SEE ON THEIR FACES, THE HUGS

THAT YOU GET, THE THANK YOUs.

TO ME, I'M JUST JACKIE FROM

EAST ST. LOUIS.

WHEN I'M IN THE COMMUNITY,

I'M JUST IN THE COMMUNITY.

TO THEM, IT WAS, LIKE, YOU

ACCOMPLISHED THIS.

BUT I THINK IT IS SO

IMPORTANT IF I WANT TO

INSPIRE, I WANT YOUNG PEOPLE

NOT TO JUST SEE ME ON

TELEVISION, BUT TO KNOW I'M

IN THAT COMMUNITY.

THAT'S ONE OF THE MESSAGES I

DO CONVEY TO YOUNG PEOPLE,

IS THAT THERE IS NO GREATER

GIFT THAT YOU CAN GIVE THAN

SERVICING OTHERS.

AND IF YOU CAN FIND IT IN

YOUR HEART TO SERVICE, WITH

HUMILITY, THAT IS THE

GREATEST GIFT.

Reporter: ADJACENT TO

THE YOUTH CENTER IS A

METROLINK THAT BEARS HER

NAME, CONNECTING GREATER ST.

LOUIS TO EAST ST. LOUIS.

IT IS THE HUB FOR HELP AND

HOPE.

PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF

LIFE TO COME AND SEE WHAT

WE'RE DOING OVER HERE, IS,

TO ME, JUST TRULY A

BLESSING.

YES, IT'S A WAY IN AS WELL

AS A WAY OUT.

THERE IS SO MUCH OUT THERE.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

IT'S A JOURNEY.

AND YOU'RE ALWAYS JUST

TRYING TO, YOU KNOW, OPEN

THE NEXT DOOR.

Reporter: WHO HAS JESUS

CHRIST BEEN TO YOU?

JESUS CHRIST, YOU KNOW,

GOD -- THERE IS NO WAY I

COULD HAVE ACCOMPLISHED ALL

OF THE THINGS THAT I HAVE

BEEN BLESSED TO DO BECAUSE I

KNOW IT JUST WASN'T ME.

AND STILL, TODAY, HE LEADS

MY LIFE.

Reporter: JACKIE JOYNER

KERSEE, OLYMPIC GREAT AND

COMMUNITY SERVICE, SETTING

THE PACE AND RAISING THE BAR

FOR THE NEXT GENERATION.

WHAT'S YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT?

IF YOU LOVE JESUS CHRIST,

DON'T BE AFRAID TO KNOWLEDGE

ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR

ACKNOWLEDGE HIM.

BE UP LIFTING, BE

ENCOURAGING, AND BE

MOTIVATED.

LET THAT BE YOUR LIGHT.

Reporter: WHAT DOES THE

RACE LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

I CAN'T SEE THE FINISH

LINE.

THERE IS STILL MORE WORK TO

BE DONE AND I WILL FINISH

STRONG, BUT ONLY HE WILL

TELL ME MY TIME.

Terry: YOU KNOW SHE

WILL FINISH STRONG.

WHEN SHE SAYS SHE IS GOING

TO DO IT, SHE DOES IT.

Pat: AMAZING ATHLETE.

Terry: INCREDIBLE

WOMAN.

NOT JUST AN AMAZING ATHLETE,

BUT SOMEBODY WHO HAS ALLOWED

ALL OF THAT TO SHAPE WHO SHE

IS AS A HUMAN BEING.

GIVING BACK, A BIG PART OF

THE COMMUNITY AND OTHER

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

THAT'S AWESOME.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW HOW

SHE COULD LIVE IN EAST ST.

LOUIS, THAT IS NOT A

PLEASANT PLACE TO LIVE.

Terry: MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

STILL TO COME, WE'RE GOING

TO BRONC BRONC.

"BRING IT ON."

AMY SAYS, "I SUFFERED FROM

DIABETES FOR 33 YEARS AND IT

IS GETTING WORSE.

I'M TIRED OF BEING SICK.

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I JUST

WANT TO DIE.

WHAT CAN I DO?"

PAT ANSWERS AMY'S E-MAIL AND@@@@

MORE LATER.@@@@

DON'T GO AWAY.@@@@

WE'LL BE BACK.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THE HOMELAND SECURITY

DEPARTMENT HAS DROPPED PLANS

TO BUILD A SYSTEM TO TRACK

LICENCE PLATES.

THE DEPARTMENT PLANNED TO

HIRE A PRIVATE COMPANY TO

BUILD A MASSIVE DATA BASE.

THE GOAL WAS TO USE IT TO

HELP HUNT DOWN ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS.

PRIVACY ADVOCATES ARGUED THEúQ

PROPOSED SYSTEM COULD BE

USED TO TRACK ANYONE IN THE

COUNTRY.

NOW THE SECRETARY HAS

CANCELLED IT.

CIVIL LIBERTIES GROUPS ARE

STILL WORRIED IT MIGHT BE

REVISEED AND RESTARTED LATER

ON.

GOVERNMENT AGENTS IN

KYRZAKHSTAN BLOCKED A

PROMINENT TELEVISION

BROADCASTER FROM LEAVING THE

COUNTRY.

BISHOP MAXUM IS THE HEAD OF

KYRZAKHSTAN'S NEW LIFE

CHURCHES AND FOUNDER OF

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE C.N.L. TV.

HE WILL MISS THIS YEAR'S

EVENT.

GOVERNMENT AGENTS REMOVED

HIM AND HIS WIFE FROM A

U.S.-BOUND AIRPLANE AND THEN

PLACED THEM IN DETENTION.

THE CHRISTIANS SAY HIS

TREATMENT IS JUST ANOTHER

EXAMPLE OF GROWING

GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS

AGAINST RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN

THEIR COUNTRY.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: THAT IS A FREE

COURSE.

IT IS PART OF A MUKE, MASS

OPEN ONLINE COURSE.

THE PLATFORM IS CALLED LUX

VERA.

AND YOU CAN E-MAIL LUX VERA

AT REGENT.EDU, OR CALL, AND

YOU CAN ENROLL IN THIS

SPECIAL COURSE AND IT WON'T

COST ANYTHING.

THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT

EVERYTHING AT REGENT IS

FREE.

Terry: THANK YOU FOR

QUALIFYING THAT.

Pat: WE NEED MONEY TO

KEEP THE DOOR OPEN, BUT THIS

PARTICULAR MASS, OPEN,

ONLINE INITIATIVE IS FREE

AND IT IS FABULOUS,

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.

SO, AGAIN, THAT ADDRESS,

LUXVERAREGENT.EDU, AND THAT

IS EASY TO REMEMBER.

OKAY, QUESTIONS.

Terry: THIS IS AMY,

PAT, WHO SAYS, "I SUFFERED

FROM DIABETES FOR 33 YEARS

AND IT IS GETTING WORSE.

I'M TIRED OF BEING SICK.

SOME DAYS I FEEL LIKE I JUST

WANT TO DIE.

WHAT CAN I DO?"

Pat: AMY, ALL I CAN

TELL YOU IS THERE ARE

SEVERAL THINGS, NUMBER ONE,

WE HAVE DONE PROGRAMS THAT

TALK ABOUT DIET AND HOW

PEOPLE CAN REVERSE SOME OF

THE EFFECTS OF DIABETES.

CERTAINLY TYPE 2 YOU CAN

REVERSE.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE GOT

TYPE 1.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU DO.

NEVERTHELESS, THERE ARE WAYS

TO CORRECT IT AND DIET MAY

BE HELPFUL TO YOU.

BEYOND THAT, BEGIN TO PRAISE

GOD.

GOD IS GOING TO GIVE YOU HIS

PRESENCE.

AND I KNOW YOU'RE SUFFERING,

AND ALL I CAN SAY IS JESUS

CHRIST DIED FOR YOU.

HE SUFFERED FOR YOU, AND HE

LOVES YOU.

AND HE'LL LIFT THAT BURDEN.

SO BEGIN TO THANK HIM.

Terry: BROOK SAYS, "IF

JESUS CAME TO DIE FOR OUR

SINS, WILL WE STILL BE

JUDGED FOR THEM IF WE REPENT

DAILY?"

Pat: YOU DON'T HAVE TO

REPENT DAILY.

JUST REPENT AND TURN AWAY

FROM IT.

AS FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM

THE WEST, I'LL TAKE YOUR

SINS FROM YOU, IS WHAT THE

LORD SAID.

Terry: AND REMEMBER

THEM NO MORE.

Pat: HERE IS WHAT HE

SAID IN JOHN.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.

HE THAT HEARS MY WORD AND

BELIEVES ON HIM WHO SENT ME

HAS EVERLASTING LIFE AND

SHALL NOT COME INTO JUDGMENT

BUT IS PASSED FROM DEATH TO

LIFE.

WHEN YOU COME TO THE LORD,

YOU HAVE PASSED FROM DEATH

INTO LIFE.

YOU'RE A NEW CATEGORY.

SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO EVERY

DAY, EVERY DAY, EVERY DAY

SAY I'M SORRY, I'M SORRY.

WHAT HE WANTS US TO DO IS TO

HAVE OUR CONSCIENCE CLEANSED

FROM DEAD WORKS TO SERVE THE

LIVING GOD.

HE WANTS OUR SERVICE, NOT

OUR CONTINUED

SELF-ABROGATION.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAID, "I HEARD WE ARE

JOINT HEIRS OF JESUS

CHRIST.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?"

Pat: WELL, JESUS IS THE

HEIR OF EVERYTHING.

THE UNIVERSE IS HIS.

AND SINCE HE IS OUR LORD,

AND WE'RE PART OF HIS BODY,

WHEN THE UNIVERSE COMES,

WE'RE HEIRS WITH HIM.

WE INHERIT THE BLESSINGS OF

JESUS CHRIST.

THAT'S PRETTY BIG-TIME

STUFF.

Terry: THIS IS JIM WHO

SAYS, "I HEARD MY PASTOR

COMPLAIN THAT SOMEONE IN OUR

CHURCH CALLED HIM ON HIS DAY

OFF.

HE FEELS AS IF HE SHOULD

ONLY HAVE TO WORK FIVE DAYS

A WEEK.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: I WOULD TELL HIM

HE OUGHT TO JOIN THE UNION.

THAT HE IS IN THE WRONG LINE

OF WORK.

Terry: THAT'S THE

TRUTH.

BOY, PASTORS, DOCTORS,

THAT'S KIND OF A SEVEN-DAY A

WEEK JOB.

Pat: OF COURSE THEY'RE

ON CALL TO HELP PEOPLE.

THAT'S LIKE A DOCTOR.

A DOCTOR HAS A PATIENT

DYING, DON'T TELL ME HE'S

SUPPOSED TO WORK FIVE DAYS A

WEEK.

NO WAY.

THAT GUY IS IN THE WRONG

LINE OF WORK.

Terry: THIS IS JESSICA

WHO SAYS, "I HEARD THAT

SATAN IS WAGING A WAR IN OUR

MINDS BY CONSTANTLY PUTTING

THOUGHTS INTO OUR HEADS THAT

CAUSE US TO FALL AWAY FROM

GOD INSTEAD OF SEEKING HIS

HELP.

IS SATAN REALLY RESPONSIBLE

FOR EVERY BAD THOUGHT WE

HAVE EVERY HAD?"

Pat: DON'T GIVE SATAN

TOO MUCH CREDIT.

I THINK THAT IS GIVING HIM

WAY TOO MUCH CREDIT.

PETER SAYS OUR ENEMY, THE

DEVIL, GOES ABOUT LIKE A

ROARING LION, SEEKING WHOM

HE CAN DEVOUR.

SO HE IS OUT THERE ALWAYS

SEEKING, LOOKING FOR

OPPORTUNITIES.

BUT IS HE EVERY DAY PUTTING

THINGS IN YOUR MIND?

NO.

A LOT OF THAT STUFF COMES

FROM WITHIN YOU, AND THAT'S

WHERE THE SIN IS.

HE CAN FLAME THOSE THINGS

AND SEDUCE THE TENDENCIES

THAT ARE ALREADY THERE, BUT

IF YOU'VE GOT A TENDENCY

TOWARD GLUTENY, FOR EXAMPLE,

ALL HE HAS TO DO IS PUT A

BIG MEAL IN FRONT OF YOU.

Terry: HE KNOWS HOW TO

GET US.

SHARON SAYS -- THIS IS AN

INTERESTING ONE, PAT --

"WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY

ABOUT BREASTFEEDING YOUR

CHILD IN PUBLIC.

EVEN IN CHURCH, I GET BAD

LOOKS FOR NURSING MY

4-MONTH-OLD.

WHY ARE SO MANY AGAINST

IT?"

Pat: YOU OUGHT TO JOIN

THE LA LECHE LEAGUE.

I THINK BREASTFEEDING IS

WONDERFUL.

THE MOTHER HAS ALL KINDS OF

NUTRIENTS HEALTH FOR THE

CHILD.

THE CHILDREN THAT ARE BREAST

FED ARE MUCH, MUCH HEALTHIER

BECAUSE THE MOTHER IS GIVING

THEM ANTIOXIDANTS AND OTHER

SUBSTANCES THAT WILL MAKE

THEM HEALTHY.

WHAT IS SUCH A BIG DEAL

ABOUT A BREAST?

I MEAN, YOU KNOW, WE GET SO

PARANOID ABOUT THIS.

MY GRANDDAUGHTER BREASTFEEDS

HER CHILD, BUT SHE HAS THIS

GARMENT --

Terry: IT'S A COVER.

YOU CAN SEE THE BABY, AND

THE BABY CAN SEE YOU, BUT

THERE IS A QUIET.

Pat: THIS IS A

BEAUTIFUL THING.

WHY SHOULD ANYBODY BE

OFFENDED.

WHAT KIND OF CHRISTIAN IS

OBJECTING TO THIS.

THIS IS THE WAY GOD NURTURES

THE YOUNG.

WHETHER THEY'RE LITTLE BABY

CALVES OR BABY HORSES OR

BABY HUMANS.

WE NURSE.

THAT'S THE WAY WE ARE.

HE PUTS A SUCKLE TO DRINK

INTO OUR LITTLE BABIES.

OF COURSE BREASTFEEDING IS

NORMAL.

YOU OUGHT TO BE GLAD THAT

SOMEBODY LIKE THAT IS GOING

TO CHURCH AND TAKING THEIR

CHILD WITH THEM.

Terry: NOW, THERE IS

THE POSITIVE OUTLOOK, YES.

Pat: AMEN!

LET'S PRAISE THE LORD

TOGETHER!

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

IN COSTA RICA, MANY CHILDREN

DROP OUT OF SCHOOL BECAUSE

THEY HAVE TO SPEND THEIR DAY

LOOKING FOR FOOD.

SO "ORPHANS' PROMISE" SOLVED

THAT PROBLEM BY BRINGING THE

FOOD TO THE SCHOOL.

Reporter: HERE IN ONE

OF COSTA RICA'S POOREST

NEIGHBORHOODS, A CHRISTIAN

SCHOOL IS HELPING TO EDUCATE

CHILDREN.

BUT THE SCHOOL WAS FACING A

CRISIS.

MOST OF THE KIDS WERE

HUNGRY.

SOME WERE EVEN STARVING.

LIKENELIKE KENDRICK, WHO

GOT EMOTIONAL WHEN HE SPOKE

ABOUT HIS FRIENDS.

I FEEL SAD THAT WE DIDN'T

HAVE ANYTHING TO EAT.

SOMETIMES IF I HAD MY OWN

FOOD, I SHARED IT WITH MY

FRIENDS.

Reporter: FOR A WHILE,

THE SCHOOL HAD PROVIDED

MEALS FOR THE STUDENTS.

BUT THE PROGRAM GOT CLOSED

DOWN WHEN THEY RAN OUT OF

MONEY.

UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE WE

COULDN'T GIVE KIDS THAT ONE

MEAL, MANY OF THEM DROPPED

OUT OF THE SCHOOL.

Reporter: THANKS TO

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE,"

THE SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM WAS

ABLE TO START UP AGAIN.

NOW KENDRICKS AND HIS

FRIENDS HAVE A MEAL EVERY

DAY DURING SCHOOL.

TO CELEBRATE THE REOPENING

OF THE LUNCH PROGRAM, WE

BROUGHT "SUPERBOOK'S" GIZMO

TO VISIT.

AND WE SHOWED THE KIDS ONE

OF THE EPISODES FROM THE

CBN'S ANIMATED SERIES.

THAT DAY WAS FUN.

WE LEARNED ABOUT JONAH.

Reporter: AND THANKS TO

THE LUNCH PROGRAM SPONSORED

BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE," THE

KIDS ARE DOING BETTER IN

SCHOOL, TOO.

THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

IS UP THIS YEAR.

IT IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO

WHEN WE RESTARTED THE MEAL

PROGRAM FOR THE KIDS.

I AM SO GRATEFUL.

IT IS A GREAT GIVE YOU HAVE

GIVEN TO US.

Terry: IT IS SOMETHING,

ISN'T IT, TO HEAR A YOUNG

BOY SAY THANK YOU FOR THE

FOOD YOU'VE GIVEN ME, AND

THANK YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE

MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO

GO TO SCHOOL, TO GET AN

EDUCATION, TO GET THEM TO

DREAM ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE

GOING TO BE WHEN THEY GROW.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

IT IS ONE THE THINGS CBN IS

DOING AROUND THE WORLD TO

TOUCH AND CHANGE LIVES, TO

GIVE PEOPLE A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

JOIN WITH US, 65 CENTS A

DAY, $20 A MONTH, MAKES YOU

A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

GO TO THE PHONE RIGHT NOW.

WE REALLY WANT TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

FOR CARING ABOUT OTHERS IS

TO SEND YOU THIS D.V.D.,

"VISIONS OF THE NIGHT."

IT IS ABOUT HOW GOD SPEAKS

TO US IN DREAMS.

IT IS YOURS WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

PAT?

Pat: DID YOU READ -- IF

YOU'RE OLD ENOUGH, YOU

REMEMBER THE MANSON FAMILY.

YOU REMEMBER SHARON STATE

AND HELTER SKELTER, AND YOU

REMEMBER THE AWFUL BUTCHERY

THAT WENT ON IN HOLLYWOOD.

UP NEXT, MEET AN UNWILLING

MEMBER OF THAT FAMILY.

I KNEW CHARLIE MANSON WAS

MY GRANDFATHER, AND IT WAS

TO BE KEPT QUIET, UNDER A

RUG.

Pat: SEE HOW ONE MAN

ESCAPED THE SHADOW OF THAT

SERIAL KILLER, WHO STILL, BY

THE WAY, IS LOCKED UP IN

PRISON.

Pat: HE WAS A HOMO

HOMOCIDAL -- MANSON WAS

FOUND GUILTY OF FIRST-DEGREE

MURDER.

HE SPENT THE FIRST 40 PLUS

YEARS IN PRISON, AND HE IS

STILL THERE.

ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST

NOTORIOUS SERIAL KILLERS.

BUT EVEN BEHIND BARS,

CHARLES MANSON STILL ROAMS

FREE, HAUNTING THE MEMORIES

IN HIS GRANDSON, JASON.

Reporter: IN THE RING,

JASON FREEMAN KNEW HE HAD TO

BE DISCIPLINED, FOCUSED, AND

FEARLESS.

THE ONLY THING THAT COULD

BEAT ME WAS THE OTHER GUY.

AND IT WASN'T GOING TO

HAPPEN.

Reporter: LIKE MOST

FIGHTERS IN THE MIXED

MARTIAL ARTS WORLD, JASON

HAD A NICKNAME.

HIS WAS CHARLIE MANSON THE

THIRD, A NAME HE INHERITED

FROM THIS DAD.

HE WAS CHARLIE

MANSON, JR.

I KNEW CHARLIE MANSON, SR.

WAS MY GRANDFATHER.

IT WAS TO BE KEPT QUIET,

UNDER A RUG.

Reporter: HIS PARENTS

NEVER MARRIED.

JASON LIVED WITH HIS MOTHER

AND STEPFATHER, WHO RAISED

HIM.

HI BIOLOGICAL FATHER KEPT

HIS DISTANCE.

AS THE SON OF A NOTORIOUS

KILLER, HE WAS FIGHTING HIS

OWN BATTLES WITH DEPRESSION

AND A DRUG ADDICTION.

THE EARLIEST MEMORIES

WERE MAINLY PHONE

CONVERSATIONS AND PICTURES

THAT HE SENT AND CHRISTMAS

GIFTS.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE JUST

REALIZED THAT I WAS FINE, I

WAS TAKEN CARE OF, THAT HE

DIDN'T THINK HE NEEDED TO BE

THERE.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

JASON'S FATHER CHECKED OUT

ON HIM FOR GOOD.

HE KILLED HIMSELF WHEN JASON

WAS A FRESHMAN IN HIGH

SCHOOL.

DESPITE THEIR SPLINTERED

RELATIONSHIP, JASON TOOK HIS

FATHER'S DEATH VERY HARD.

I BLAMED MY FATHER'S

SUICIDE ON MY GRANDFATHER.

Reporter: JASON POURED

THOSE EMOTIONS INTO HIGH

SCHOOL FOOTBALL AND

WRESTLING.

I KNEW THAT MY ANGER

NEEDED TO BE DIRECTED IN A

POSITIVE MANNER.

Reporter: STILL,

JASON'S TIES TO THE MANSON

FAMILY NAME HAUNTED HIM, AND

HE SWORE TO BREAK THE CYCLE

OF DRUGS AND VIOLENCE.

BUT HIS HAIR-TRIGGER TEMPER

WAS WORKING AGAINST HIM.

PEOPLE KNEW I COULD

FIGHT.

I WOULD FIGHT.

I DIDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

FIGHTING.

WHEN I WAS PROVOKED, I KNEW

I COULD HURT SOMEBODY, AND I

DIDN'T WANT TO HURT NOBODY.

Reporter: AS AN ADULT,

HE FOUND ANOTHER WAY TO USE

HIS ANGER, THROUGH MIXED

MARTIAL ARTS.

BUT TO MAKE MONEY, HE

STARTED SELLING DRUGS, AND

SOON STARTED USING THEM,

TOO.

JASON FELT THE CONSEQUENCES

OF HIS ACTIONS.

WHEN YOU'RE ON DRUGS,

THAT MAKES YOU'RE FAMILY NOT

WANT TO BE AROUND YOU OR NOT

LIKE YOU, AND YOU DON'T FIT

IN.

YOU GET MIXED UP IN WHATEVER

KIND OF DRUG IT IS TO HIDE

YOURSELF FROM REALITY.

YOU'RE IN A BOX.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET

OUT.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

JASON WAS ARRESTED AND

CONVICTED FOR DRUG

TRAFFICKING.

HIS WORST FEAR HAD COME

TRUE.

I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO

FAIL.

SEEING IT ALL AROUND ME, ALL

MY LIFE.

Reporter: HE ASKED GOD

FOR HELP.

I LAID IN BED PROBABLY

FOR HOURS, JUST CRYING AND

JUST ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS

AND HELP.

HELP TO UNDERSTAND.

GIVE ME SOME WISDOM TO

REALIZE THE PATH I'M ON

ISN'T THE RIGHT PATH.

Reporter: HE FOUND

HIMSELF A BIBLE, BUT WASN'T

SURE WHERE TO BEGIN.

HE MET SOMEONE WHO HELPED.

THERE WAS A ORDAINED

MINISTER IN THERE FOR

RELAPSING BACK FROM CRACK

COCAINE.

I STARTED ASKING QUESTIONS.

AND I SAID, I DON'T KNOW

WHERE TO START IN THIS LONG

BOOK, HIS BIBLE.

HE SAID, JUST READ JOHN.

EVERYBODY STARTS WITH JOHN.

HE PRAYED OVER ME.

I ACCEPTED JESUS IN MY

HEART.

AT THAT POINT I WANTED TO

WALK A DIFFERENT PATH.

Reporter: HE TOOK THE

FIRST STEP.

I WENT STRAIGHT TO THE

BIBLE, AND I READ EVERY

DAY.

AND I STAYED FOCUSED ON

MYSELF.

I STAYED FOCUSED ON

UNDERSTANDING WHY I'M IN

HERE.

Reporter: JASON SERVED

HIS TIME.

HE ALSO MET AND MARRIED

AUDREY.

HE SAYS ON HIS JOURNEY OF

FAITH, SHE HELPED HIM EVERY

STEP OF THE WAY.

I DIDN'T KNOW FOR THE

LONGEST TIME WHICH WAY WAS

UP OR DOWN.

I CAN HONESTLY SAY WHEN I

MET MY WIFE, AUDREY, IT HAS

BEEN A ROUGH ROAD, BUT SHE

MADE ME WHO I AM TODAY.

Reporter: IN 2011, HE

DECIDED TO STEP OUT OF THE

RING FOR GOOD.

JASON REMEMBERS HIS

CONVERSATION WIT

H

GOD ON THE

NIGHT OF HIS LAST FIGHT.

I WAS ASKING HIM, WHY AM

I OUT HERE?

HE SAID, I BUILT A STAGE UP

UNDERNEATH YOU TO SPEAK OFF

OF AND REACH OTHERS.

Reporter: NOW HE TALKS

TO KIDS ABOUT HOW TO AVOID

THE MISTAKES HE MADE.

HOW'S IT GOING TODAY?

Reporter: HE SAYS WITH

GOD'S HELP, HE HAS BEEN OFF

THE DRUGS AND HIS ANGER IS

IN CHECK.

HE AND AUDREY ARE RAISING

THREE BOYS AND WORKING ON

LEAVING A LEGACY FOUNDED ON

FAITH IN GOD.

I'VE GOT MY WHOLE

FAMILY.

I LOVE IT.

Reporter: THE KID WITH

THE NOTORIOUS FAMILY TIES

HAS FOUND HIS PURPOSE

THROUGH HIS FAITH IN JESUS

CHRIST.

ONCE PEOPLE GET TO KNOW

ME FOR ME AND NOT THE NAME,

I CARRY MY OWN WEIGHT, YOU

KNOW?

I FEEL GOD MOVES THROUGH ME,

LIKE HE MOVES THROUGH A LOT

OF PEOPLE.

AND IF THAT NAME SOMEHOW

ATTRACTS ATTENTION OVER TO

MY CORNER, THEN I'VE GOT

SOMETHING POSITIVE TO SPEAK

ABOUT.

Pat: YOU KNOW, SIN CAN

LEAVE A STAIN.

IT CAN LEAVE A TERRIBLE

STAIN.

THERE WAS A BOOK WRITTEN

ABOUT A LADY NAMED ESTHER

PRIM, BACK IN THE DAYS OF

THE EARLY PURITANS IN NEW

ENGLAND.

SHE HAD TO WEAR A SCARLET

LETTER.

SHE COMMITTED ADULTERY, AND

THEY WANTED TO LEAVE THAT

STAIN ON HER ALL HER LIFE AS

A MARK OF SIN.

GOD WANTS TO TAKE THAT MARK

AWAY.

HE WANTS TO CLEANSE US.

CLEANSE US FROM DEAD WORKS,

THAT WE MIGHT SERVE THE

LIVING GOD.

LISTEN, YOU'VE SINNED, I'VE

SINNED, WE'VE ALL SINNED.

BEFORE GOD WE'RE ALL

GUILTY.

THERE IS NONE THAT DOETH

GOD, NO, NOT ONE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE WHO IS

PERFECT, THE SON OF GOD,

JESUS CHRIST.

NOBODY IS PERFECT.

GOD KNOWS YOUR SIN.

SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN

INVOLVED IN HOMOSEXUALITY.

SOME OF HAVE HAD ABORTION.

SOME OF YOU HAVE ACTUALLY

COMMITTED MURDER.

SOME HAVE DISOBEYED YOUR

PARENTS, STOLEN MONEY FROM

YOUR BUSINESS.

YOU'VE DONE ALL KINDS OF

THINGS.

GOD SAYS IF YOU REPENT AND

COME TO ME, I'LL WASH THE

SLATE CLEAN.

YOU CAN GET RID OF IT ALL.

AND HE'LL GIVE YOU A NEW

NAME.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS IN HEAVEN

HE GIVES US A NEW NAME.

EACH ONE OF US HAS A LITTLE

STONE THAT WILL HAVE THE

NAME, THAT WILL SHOW THE ONE

WAY WE CAN REFLECT THE GLORY

OF GOD THAT NOBODY ELSE CAN

DO.

AND YOU'RE

UNIQUE AND GOD

WANTS YOU.

HE WANTS YOU IN HEAVEN.

HE WANTS YOU REFLECTING HIS

GLORY.

AND HE'LL WIPE AWAY THE

STAIN, BUT YOU HAVE TO COME

AND ASK HIM.

SO IF YOU'LL COME RIGHT NOW

TO THE FOOT OF THE CROSS,

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN A

VERY SIMPLE PRAYER.

AND I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO

PRAY WITH ME AT THIS MOMENT,

WHEREVER YOU ARE, THESE

WORDS: JESUS -- THAT'S

RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE

DONE, YOU KNOW THE STAIN

THAT IS ON MY LIFE.

AND I ASK YOU TO COME AND

WIPE THAT STAIN AWAY.

WASH ME, MAKE ME CLEAN.

THOUGH YOUR SINS ARE

SCARLET, YOU'LL BE WHITE AS

SNOW.

I RECEIVE THAT, LORD, THAT

CLEANSING, RIGHT NOW.

AND I TAKE YOU AS SAVIOR AND

I MAKE YOU LORD OF MY LIFE.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON, LORD, I

AM YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO HELP YOU.

I DON'T JUST WANT TO LEAVE

YOU OUT THERE.

I'VE GOT SOMETHING ELSE FOR

YOU IF YOU'LL JUST GIVE US A

CALL.

I HAVE THIS LITTLE BOOKLET,

AND IN IT IS A C.D. ABOUT

WHAT YOU'VE DONE AND WHAT

YOU NEED TO DO NEXT.

YOU CAN CALL RIGHT NOW.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

REMEMBER THE TELEPHONES ARE

AVAILABLE, AND THERE ARE

PEOPLE ON THE LINE WHO LOVE

YOU.

SO DON'T HESITATE TO CALL.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE, TAKEN FROM THE

41st CHAPTER OF ISAIAH:

"FEAR NOT FOR I AM WITH

YOU.

BE NOT DISMAYED, FOR I AM

YOUR GOD.

I WILL STRENGTHEN YOU.

YES, I WILL HELP YOU.

I WILL UP HOLD YOU WITH MY

RIGHTEOUS RIGHT HAND."

WELL, THAT'S ALL THE TIME

WE'VE GOT.

TOMORROW WE'LL HAVE A

HEROINE WHO STOPPED A SCHOOL

SHOOTING.

UNTIL THEN, FOR PAT

ROBERTSON AND TERRY AND ALL

OF OUR STAFF, WE SAY

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS YOU.
