The 700 Club - March 5, 2014

Gordon Robertson takes a look at some of the medical breakthroughs that have come from Israel. Plus, Marcie just wanted to be loved, but after a string of boyfriends, pregnancies and abortions, she was lonely and broken. Read Transcript


I JUST COULDN'T SEE ANY

FUTURE FOR MYSELF.

AN IRAQI LIVING OUT THE

AMERICAN DREAM.

YOU CAN BE ANYONE YOU

WANT TO BE.

PLUS, THE BLIND SHALL

SEE.

WE FOUND A SOLUTION.

AND THE LAME SHALL WALK.

I WAS AMAZED.

HOW ISRAELI TECHNOLOGY IS

MAKING BIBLICAL PROPHECY

COME TRUE.

THE NECESSITY THE TH IS

THE MOTHER OF ALL

INVENTIONS.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE RUSSIANS TALK ABOUT THE

WOLVES IN THE FORESTS, AND

THE OLD JOKE IS -- TRAGEDY,

I SUPPOSE IS -- DO YOU

APPEASE THE WORLD BY

THROWING A BABY TO HIM, AND

LET HIM DEVOUR IT, AND THEN

HE'LL LIE DOWN PEACEFULLY

AND NOT TRY TO GET ANOTHER

ONE.

THAT'S WHAT OUR DIPLOMATS

ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT.

THE ANSWER IS PUTIN IS A

WOLF, AND HE IS GOING TO

DEVOUR WHOEVER IS GIVEN TO

HIM.

THE MORE WEAKNESS, THE MORE

HE WILL WANT MORE AND MORE

AND MORE, UNLESS WE STOP

HIM.

WE HAD THAT SAME THING, I

MENTIONED, IN WORLD WAR II.

WHERE ADOLPH HITLER STARTED

TALKING ABOUT THE DEUTSCHE

AND ALL OF THIS, AND HE IS

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THE

STRUGGLING GERMANS.

AND AFTER THAT, HE STARTED

TAKING MORE TERRITORY.

AND THE FRENCH AND THE

BRITISH HAD ENOUGH ARMS IN

THOSE DAYS TO MAKE HIM

STOP.

HITLER DEPUTY HAVE THE

POWER.

PUTIN DOESN'T HAVE THE

POWER, EITHER.

HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY KIND OF

AN ARMY.

IT'S A JOKE.

HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY AIR

FORCE.

THAT'S A JOKE.

HE HAS A LOT OF NUCLEAR

WEAPONS, BUT HE PROBABLY

WON'T USE THOSE BECAUSE WE

COULD DESTROY HIS COUNTRY.

SO WHAT IS HE DOING?

IT'S A BLUFF.

AND THE MORE HE TAKES, THE

MORE HE'LL WANT.

THESE PEOPLE ARE MEETING IN

PARIS, AND THEY'RE TRYING TO

PUT AN END TO THIS SHOWDOWN

NONSENSE.

THE MORE THEY GIVE HIM, THE

MORE HE'LL WANT TO TAKE.

Terry: RUSSIA MAY

INTERVENE AGAIN AFTER A

SUDDEN EXPLOSION OF

PRO-RUSSIAN DEMONSTRATIONS

ACROSS EASTERN UKRAINE.

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US THE

STORY.

George: WE DROVE SIX

HOURS FROM KIEV, THE

INDUSTRIAL HEARTLAND AND

UKRAINE'S SECOND MOST

POPULAR CITY.

HERE MANY ETHNIC RUSSIANS

WANT NOTHING MORE THAN TO

SEE MOSCOW INVADE AND TAKE

CONTROL OF THE EASTERN

UKRAINE.

ONLY RUSSIA'S PRESIDENT,

VLADIMIR PUTIN, CAN SAVE US

FROM THE ILLEGITIMATE

GOVERNMENT IN KIEV.

George: FOR SEVERAL

HOURS ON TUESDAY, RIOT

POLICE BLOCKED ALL ROADS, AS

PRO-UKRAINIAN AND

PRO-RUSSIAN DEMONSTRATORS

CONTINUED THEIR ALMOST DAILY

FACEOFF.

I'M VERY UPSET.

I WANTED THOSE TROOPS TO

ATTACK.

AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN THE

FIRST ONE TO WELCOME RUSSIAN

TANKS TO THIS SQUARE WITH

FLOWERS.

George: THIS PAST

WEEKEND DOZENS WERE INJURED

WHEN PRO-RUSSIAN

DEMONSTRATORS STORMED CITY

HALL, REPLACING EUROPEAN

UNION FLAGS WITH RUSSIAN

ONES, AND CALLED FOR UNION

WITH MOSCOW.

BY LATE MONDAY, THE POLICE

HAD REGAINED CONTROL OF THE

BUILDING, AND THE UKRAINIAN

FLAG FLEW ONCE AGAIN.

BUT IT ISN'T STOPPING

PROTESTORS.

THE MAJORITY OF THE FOLKS

WHO GATHERED HERE ARE

PRO-RUSSIAN.

THEY HAVE CALLED THEM TO

GATHER EVERY NIGHT AT

6 p.m. UNTIL THIS IS

SOLVED.

George:

THIS CHRISTIAN WAS

FILMING IN A PRO-RUSSIAN

DEMONSTRATION WHEN POLICE

ARRESTED HIM.

WE MET HIM SHORTLY AFTER HIS

RELEASE.

THERE IS A MAJORITY OF

ETHNIC RUSSIANS WHO WANT

RUSSIANS TO INVADE, BUT THE

MAJORITY ARE BEING SENT FROM

RUSSIA TO STIR UP PROBLEMS.

George: IN THE LAST FEW

DAYS, 11 CITIES HAVE

WITNESSED SUDDEN ERUPTIONS

OF PRO-RUSSIAN

DEMONSTRATIONS.

SOMETHING OF EXTREME CONCERN

TO OLA AND LENA.

I JUST DON'T LIKE IT,

THAT WE HAVE SO MUCH

HOSTILITY IN OUR CITY.

SOMEBODY FOR RUSSIA.

SOMEBODY FOR UKRAINE.

I JUST DON'T LIKE IT.

I WANT PEOPLE TO LIVE IN

PEACE.

WE DON'T WANT WAR WITH

RUSSIA.

WE'RE BROTHERS.

WE NEED TO GET ALONG WITH

EACH OTHER.

George: HARKEF IS ONLY

20 MILES FROM THE RUSSIAN

BORDER.

PUTIN HAS LEFT ALL MILITARY

OPTIONS OPEN TO PROTECT

ETHNIC RUSSIANS FROM

VIOLENCE.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

HARKEF, UKRAINE.

Pat: THIS IS NOT DONE

ISOLATED, AND THE WHOLE

WORLD IS WATCHING.

THEY SAY, HOW IS THE U.S.

GOING TO REACT?

WE SEE HOW THEY'VE REACTED

TO SYRIA AND THESE OTHER

SITUATIONS.

AND THERE IS A PERCEIVED

WEAKNESS ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

AND THE TIME HAS COME, IT

SEEMS LIKE TO ME, NOT ONLY

SHOULD WE GIVE SOME MONEY,

BUT IT MIGHT BE AN IMPORTANT

THING TO HAVE A SQUADRON OF

OUR LATEST FIGHTER PLANES

FLY INTO KIEV OR SOME PLACE,

AND SAY, LISTEN, YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO GET AWAY WITH THIS,

MR. PUTIN.

AND WE'RE TOUGH, AND WE'RE

GOING TO MAKE YOU BEHAVE.

THE JOKE WAS -- DO YOU

REMEMBER JIMMY CARTER AND

THAT NONSENSE OF STAYING IN

THE ROSE GARDEN BECAUSE OUR

EMBASSY HAD BEEN CAPTURED.

AS SOON AS THE RONALD REAGAN

GOT IN, THEY SAID, THE

COWBOY IS IN AND THEY'RE

GOING TO BLOW US UP.

THE MINUTE HE WAS

INAUGURATED, THEY SAID,

WE'VE GOT A TOUGH GUY IN

WASHINGTON.

WE CAN'T PLAY GAMES WITH

HIM.

WE CAN BLUFF CARTER BECAUSE

HE IS WEAK.

AND THEY THINK THEY CAN

BLUFF OBAMA BECAUSE HE IS

WEAK.

LET'S GO TO CHRIS MITCHELL

TO TELL US WHAT THE REACTION

IS.

JOHN HAS MORE ON THAT.

Reporter: A FORMER

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR IS

WARNING THAT WEAKNESS FROM

THE UNITED STATES IS SENDING

THE WRONG SIGNAL TO MANY

COUNTRIES, INCLUDING NATIONS

LIKE IRAN AND NORTH KOREA.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: WHILE THE

UKRAINIAN CRISIS PITS THE

U.S., EUROPE AND THE WEST

AGAINST VLADIMIR PUTIN,

MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRIES ARE

WATCHING CLOSELY.

MANY BELIEVE THAT U.S.

ACTIONS FOR THE LAST SEVERAL

YEARS, PARTICULARLY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, HAVE SET THE

STAGE FOR THE CURRENT CRISIS

IN UKRAINE.

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT

SEVERE EROSION IN THE U.S.

POSTURE, IN THE U.S.

PROJECTION, THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD HAS TRIGGERED MUCH

MORE AUDACIOUS OR EMBOLDENED

RUSSIA.

Reporter: FORMER

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR TO THE

U.S. CONGRESS URAN SAYS

PERCEIVED WEAKNESS IN U.S.

FOREIGN POLICY HAS SENT A

MESSAGE TO THE ENEMIES OF

ISRAEL AND THE U.S.

THE CHIEF TRIGGER OF MORE

EMBOLDENED RUSSIA, MORE

EMBOLDENED IRAN, CHINA,

NORTH KOREA AND VENEZUALA

HAS BEEN THE RECENT

ENGAGEMENT BY THE U.S. WITH

IRAN.

ROGUE REGIMES THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD NOTICED THE U.S.

LITERALLY APPEASING IRAN.

Reporter: HE BELIEVES

THE WORLD NEEDS A STRONG

U.S.A.

FOR GLOBAL SANITY, WE

NEED A VERY EXCEPTIONAL

U.S.A.

WE NEED A VERY DETERRING

U.S.A.

LESS EXCEPTIONAL U.S.A., AND

NON-DETERING U.S.A. ONLY

EXACERBATES THE ALREADY

INSANITY OF THE WORLD.

Reporter: AS THE CRISIS

IN UKRAINE UNFOLDS, U.S.

FOREIGN POLICY WILL BE PUT

TO THE TEST, TO SEE IF IT

CAN STAND UP TO THE NEW

THREATS IN THE 21st

CENTURY.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

HERE IN WASHINGTON,

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS COME

UNDER FIRE FOR SOME OF HIS

NOMINEES TO REPRESENT

AMERICA AS AMBASSADORS

AROUND THE WORLD.

A UNION FOR FOREIGN SERVICE

WORKERS IS MEETING DISCUSS

ITS CONCERNS ABOUT THOSE

NOMINEES.

AS JENNIFER WISHON REPORTS,

THEY ARE WORRIED THAT

SENDING UNQUALIFIED

AMBASSADORS OVERSEAS WILL

HURT AMERICA'S ECONOMY AND

SECURITY.

Reporter: IT'S BEEN

MORE THAN 20 YEARS SINCE THE

AMERICAN FOREIGN SERVICE

ASSOCIATION WEIGHED IN

PUBLICLY ON A PRESIDENT'S

PICK FOR AN AMBASSADORSHIP.

THE GROUP SERVES AS A UNION

FOR AMERICA'S FOREIGN

WORKERS.

AND AFTER WATCHING THE

RECENT CONFIRMATION HEARINGS

OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

NOMINEES, MEMBERS COULDN'T

STAY SILENT.

THE AMBASSADOR SPEAKS FOR

THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AND THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE

PRESIDENT.

Reporter: SOAP OPERA

PRODUCER COLLEEN BELL,

NOMINATED AS AMBASSADOR TO

HUNGARY, AND POLITICAL

CONSULTANT NOAH BAMBIT WAS

NOMINATED.

BUT AFTER WATCHING THEIR

PERFORMANCES DURING THEIR

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS ON

CAPITOL HILL, MEMBERS OF THE

ASSOCIATION FELT THEYç HAD TO

SPEAK UP TO KEEP AMERICANS

FROM GETTING RIPPED OFF.ç

HAVE YOU BEEN TO

ARGENTINA?

SENATOR, I HAVEN'T HAD

THE OPPORTUNITY YETMENT.

YET.

A LOT OF MARKETS WILL

CONTINUE TO OPEN UP.

AS AMBASSADOR, HOW WOULD

YOU PROMOTE THOSE TRADE

COOPERATIONS.

THANK YOU FOR THAT SAVE,

SENATOR JOHNSON.

Reporter: THERE WERE

SEVERAL MOMENTS WHEN THE

NOMINEES APPEARED TO NEED

SAVING.

BUT CRITICS ARGUED THAT THE

STAKES AT AMERICA'S

DIPLOMATIC POSTS ARE TOO

HIGH FOR FAILURE.

JUST LIKE AT THE CRISIS IN

UKRAINE.

37% OF AMBASSADORS APPOINTED

BY PRESIDENT OBAMA HAVE BEEN

POLITICAL, BUT CAREER

DIPLOMATS SAY PROBLEMS WITH

POLITICAL APPOINTEES DIDN'T

START WITH THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

AND THEY SAY THEY ARE

EXAMPLES OF AMERICA MISSING

OPPORTUNITIES ABROAD BECAUSE

HER TOP DIPLOMAT IN THE POST

WASN'T QUALIFIED.

OTHER COUNTRIES DO NOT

SEND CAMPAIGN DONORS TO THE

UNITED STATES AT

AMBASSADORS.

Reporter: FEDERAL LAW

SAYS CAMPAIGN DONATORS

SHOULDN'T BE A FACTOR IN THE

SELECTION.

IN AN EFFORT TO ENCOURAGE

MORE QUALIFIED NOMINEES, THE

ASSOCIATION HAS SPELLED OUT

A LIST OF GUIDELINES.

THEY ARE COMMON SENSE.

IT IS REQUIRING LEADERSHIP

EXPERIENCE.

UNDERSTANDING THE COUNTRY TO

WHICH YOU'RE BEING

ASSIGNED.

Reporter: IN THE

PRESIDENT'S PREROGATIVE TO

NOMINATE AMBASSADORS, AND

THE SENATE'S PREROGATIVE TO

CONFIRM THEM.

IN

THE WHITE HOUSE TO BE MORE

SELECTIVE IN THESE IMPORTANT

CHOICES IN THE FUTURE.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

A GERMAN HOME-SCHOOLING

FAMILY WILL BE ALLOWED TO

STAY IN THE U.S. AFTER ALL.

THE SUPREME COURT REFUSED TO

HEAR AN APPEAL FROM THE

ROMEIKE FAMILY, AND NOW THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY ANNOUNCED THE

FAMILY HAS BEEN GRANTED

INDEFINITE DEFERRED STATUS.

AND THAT MEANS THEY CAN STAY

IN THE U.S. PERMANENTLY

UNLESS THEY COMMIT A CRIME.

THEY FLED GERMANY BECAUSE

THE STATE THREATENED TO TAKE

AWAY THEIR CHILDREN IF THEY

DID NOT ENROLL IN A PUBLIC

SCHOOL.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

READY TO ANNOUNCE ANOTHER

DELAY IN OBAMACARE.

THAT WILL PREVENT ANOTHER

WAVE OF POLICY CANCELLATIONS

THIS FALL, WEEKS BEFORE THE

CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS.

THE MOVE WILL HELP DEMOCRATS

AVOID MORE BAD NEWS OVER

OBAMACARE.

NOW THE POLL SHOWS DEMOCRATS

COULD VERY WELL LOSE CONTROL

OF THE SENATE.

Pat: IT IS I INSANITY,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THEY PASS A LAW, AND NOT ONE

REPUBLICAN VOTES FOR THE

LAW.

THE THING IS A MONSTROSITY,

AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE

BOLTING AGAINST IT.

INSTEAD OF GOING TO CONGRESS

AND DEBATING THE ISSUE, WHAT

THEY'RE GOING TO DO IS HAVE

THE PRESIDENT, BA BY

UNILATERAL OPTION, CHANGE

PARTS OF IT ON HIS OWN.

THAT'S UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

IT SHOWS AN INCREDIBLE

DISREGARD FOR THE LA RULE

OF LAW, THE SEPARATION OF

POWERS, AND ALL OF THOSE

THINGS WE THINK IS IMPORTANT

IN OUR GOVERNMENT.

BUT WHY ARE THEY DOING IT?

BECAUSE THE LAW IS SO BAD,

AND IF IT IS PUT IN PLACE

BEFORE THE ELECTION, A LOT

MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO

VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS.

THE HOUSE IS IN THE HANDS OF

THE REPUBLICANS, BUT HARRY

REID AND HIS GANG IN THE

SENATE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO

VOTE AGAINST COUNTLESS

NUMBERS OF INITIATIVES JUST

BY NOT EVEN HAVING A VOTE ON

THEM.

SO THEY WANT TO HOLD CONTROL

OF THE SENATE.

SO IF THE SENATE GOES AND

THE HOUSE GOES, OBAMA WILL

BE ISOLATED, AND HE IS DOING

EVERYTHING HE CAN.

BUT THIS IS NAKED POLITICS,

AND IT MAKES YOU SICK AT

YOUR STOMACH.

JOHN?

PAT, A DIET HEAVY ON MEAT

AND CHEESE COULD BE VERY BAD

FOR YOUR HEALTH IF YOU'RE

MIDDLE-AGED.

IT COULD BE AS BAD AS

SMOKING CIGARETTES.

IT FOUND THAT MIDDLE-AGED

PEOPLE WHO GOT MOST OF THEIR

PROTEIN FROM MEAT AND DAIRY

WERE TWICE A LIKELY TO DIE

FROM CANCER.

FOR OLDER PEOPLE, 66 AND UP,

A HIGH PROTEIN DIET TURNED

OUT TO BE GOOD.

THEY WERE LESS LIKELY TO DIE

FROM CANCER.

RESEARCHERS SAY DIET CAN

HAVE A DIFFERENT EFFECT AT

DIFFERENT AGES OF LIFE.

THEY WARNED THAT MIDDLE-AGED

PEOPLE NEED TO BE ESPECIALLY

CAREFUL ABOUT TOO MUCH

MEAT.

AND STUDIES SAY AMERICANS

EAT ABOUT TWICE AS MUCH

PROTEIN AS THEY SHOULD.

Pat: IT DEPENDS ON THE

PROTEIN.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I WANT

TO BE AN ADVOCATE FOR BEANS,

BLACK BEANS.

IF THE BEANS ARE MATCHED

WITH CORN, YOU HAVE A

PERFECT PROTEIN.

IF YOU EAT SOYBEANS, AND, OF

COURSE, THEY HAVE PROBLEMS

WITH ESTROGEN IN SOYBEANS,

BUT YOU THEY HAVE 20 OF THE

22 PROTEINS.

SO THESE PLANT-BASED

PROTEINS ARE GOOD FOR YOU.

THE OTHER DAY I HAD A

DELICIOUS LUNCH.

I OPENED A CAN OF TUNAFISH.

WATER-PACKED TUNAFISH.

AND I HAD SOME HOT SAUCE --

Terry: HOT SAUCE?

REALLY?

Pat: TABASCO, BABY.

AND SALT AND PEPPER AND

OLIVE OIL.

AND YOU MIX THEM TOGETHER

AND IT IS DELICIOUS.

AND YOU'RE EATING FISH.

THEY TELL YOU TO EAT FISH.

AND I TAKE FISH OIL.

FISH OIL IS GOOD, TOO.

BUT ALL OF THESE BIG, HEAVY

STEAK THINGS, AND WHEN YOU

GET OLDER -- I DON'T KNOW

WHAT MIDDLE-AGED IS TODAY --

AFTER 65, AFTER 67, WHEN YOU

GET OLDER, IT DOESN'T

MATTER, BUT YOU NEED YOUR

PROTEIN.

Terry: THE RIGHT KIND

OF PROTEIN.

Pat: IN ANY EVENT, WHAT

THEY'VE BEEN SAYING, IT IS

SUGAR THAT IS KILLING YOU.

SUGAR IS CAUSING TYPE 2

DIABETES.

SUGAR IS CAUSING

INFLAMMATION, AND IT IS

DESTROYING PEOPLE'S LIVES,

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND ALL

OF THAT STUFF.

AND THERE IS SUGAR

EVERYWHERE, ESPECIALLY IN

SUGARED DRINKS.

Terry: BUT YOU CAN EAT

WELL AND AVOID IT.

Pat: IF YOU'RE ME, YOU

EAT WONDERFULLY WELL.

YOU DON'T EAT THAT MUCH.

THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH OF

THAT JUNK YOU CAN STAND.

Terry: YOU'RE AN

ENCOURAGER --

Pat: I'M AN

ENCOURAGER.

LIVE LONG AND BE

PROSPEROUS.

Terry: COMING UP, AN

IRAQI WOMAN'S DREAM COMES

TRUE.

THIS COUNTRY IS WONDERFUL

WHEN OPENING ITS DOORS TO

US.

I DIDN'T GROW UP WITH

THIS.

I REALLY WANTED IT.

Terry: WATCH HER BECOME

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN AFTER

THIS.

IRAQ WAS ONCE HOME TO A

THRIVING CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY.

SOME OF THE EARLIEST

CHRISTIANS OF ALL LIVED IN

THAT FERTILE CRESCENT, BUT

NOT ANY LONGER.

THE UNITED STATES CAME IN.

AND WHAT DID THEY BRING?

CHAOS AND PERSECUTION.

INTERESTING ENOUGH, UNDER

SADDAM HUSSEIN, CHRISTIANS

HAD A BETTER DEAL THAN THEY

DID UNDER THE LIBERATED

IRAQI OF GEORGE BUSH AND

THEN OUR CURRENT

ADMINISTRATION.

BUT A NUMBER OF THESE PEOPLE

HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COME TO

THE UNITED STATES, AND JOHN

JESSUP INTRODUCES US TO ONE

IRAQI WOMAN WHO RECENTLY

BECAME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL STORY.

A WOMAN AND CHRISTIAN,

GIVE IT A COUPLE MORE YEARS,

THANK YOU.

Reporter: ASIL HAS

ALWAYS BEEN BRIGHT AND

OPTMISTIC, BUT UNLIKE HER

POSITIVE PERSONALITY, MANY

OF HER CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

WERE SCARE SCARRED BY THE

DARK CLOUDS OF WAR.

I WAS VERY DETERMINED.

I JUST NEEDED TO GET AWAY.

I COULDN'T SEE ANY FUTURE

FOR MYSELF.

Reporter: SHE AND HER

FAMILY FLED BAGHDAD IN 1991

TO ESCAPE WHAT SEEMED LIKE

ENDLESS FIGHTING.

SHE WAS 10 YEARS OLD WHEN

THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR STARTED.

AFTER A MONTH, SEEKING

REFUGE IN JORDAN, SHE

CONVINCED HER DAD TO TAKE

HER TO A COUNTRY SHE ALWAYS

DREAMED OF VISITING.

I BEGGED MY FATHER.

I SAID, DAD, PLEASE JUST GO

TO THE AMERICAN EMBASSY.

LET'S JUST TRY.

IT WAS LIKE A DREAM TO ME,

LIBERTY AND FREEDOM OF

EXPRESSION.

I DIDN'T GROW UP WITH THAT,

SO I REALLY WANTED IT.

Reporter: SHE AND HER

FATHER HAD ROUND-TRIP

TICKETS TO VISIT HER FAMILY

IN KENTUCKY, BUT HER AUNT

HAD OTHER PLANS, AND THEY

DIDN'T INCLUDE RETURNING TO

THE DICTATORIAL REGIME OF

SADDAM HUSSEIN.

SHE TOLD MY FATHER, THIS

GIRL, I WILL NEVER, EVER LET

HER LEAVE.

MY FATHER WAS, WHAT ARE YOU

TALKING ABOUT?

SHE IS MY DAUGHTER.

Reporter: HER AUNT

HELPED HER GET INTO KENTUCKY

UNIVERSITY'S ART PROGRAM.

BEING IRAQI IS WHO I AM,

WHO I HAVE BEEN.

BEING AMERICA, ON THE OTHER

HAND, IS WHO I BECAME AND

GREW INTO.

Reporter: AND RECENTLY,

ON THE 22nd ANNIVERSARY OF

THE U.S. BILL OF RIGHTS, SHE

TOOK THE OATH.

*

Reporter: AND SHE

BECAME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

SURROUNDED BY OUR FOUNDING

DOCUMENT AT THE NATIONAL

ARCHIVES IN WASHINGTON,

D.C.

THIS COUNTRY IS WONDERFUL

IN OPENING ITS DOORS TO

IMMIGRANTS.

AND VERY OFTEN YOU COME AND

YOU RUSH THROUGH THE

PROCESS.

FOR ME IT WAS MORE OF A

GROWING EXPERIENCE.

AND SO TODAY IT WAS MORE

LIKE I'M SEALING THE DEAL.

Reporter: SHE STILL

CARES DEEPLY FOR HER NATIVE

IRAQ AND ITS PEOPLE, BUT HER

HOPES HAVE DIMMED ON AN

ISSUE THAT HITS CLOSE TO

HOME: THE GROWING

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

HONESTLY, I DON'T SEE A

FUTURE.

IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.

Reporter: SHE IS AN

IRAQI CHRISTIAN, HOME TO ONE

OF THE WORLD'S OLDEST

CHRISTIAN POPULATIONS.

IT IS CONSIDERED A VERY

HONEST AND FAIR COMMUNITY.

AND THEY GAVE A LOT TO IRAQ,

TO THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: BUT AFTER THE

IRAQ WAR BEGAN, CHRISTIANS

BECAME AN EASY TARGET,

FREQUENTLY PERSECUTED,

TORTURED, OR KILLED.

IN THE LAST 10 YEARS, OF THE

MORE THAN ONE MILLION

CHRISTIANS WHO ONCE CALLED

IRAQ HOME, ONLY ABOUT A

THIRD ARE LEFT, WITH MORE

FLEEING DAILY.

THERE IS JUST NO DOUBT

THAT ANCIENT AND HISTORIC

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES ARE

THREATENED AS NEVER BEFORE.

Reporter: THE SITUATION

IS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME IN

SYRIA AND IN EGYPT, WHERE

STILL UNREST IS MAKING IT

NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ONCE

ANCIENT COMMUNITIES TO

SURVIVE.

AS A NEW AMERICAN CITIZEN,

ASIL HAS HIGH HOPES FOR THE

COUNTRY SHE ONCE CALLED

HOME.

AND PLANS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF THE RIGHTS SHE NEVER KNEW

IN IRAQ, LIKE VOTING.

SHE PLANS TO CAST HER VOTE

THIS SPRING.

A SCENARIO SHE UNDERSTANDS

IS UNIQUE TO THE AMERICAN

EXPERIENCE.

THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN

MANY COUNTRIES.

BUT IT DEFINITELY HAPPENS IN

THE UNITED STATES.

IT JUST GAVE ME THIS HOPE,

LIKE YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU

WANT.

YOU CAN BE ANYONE YOU WANT

TO BE.

AND THAT'S WHAT'S OWE

BEAUTIFUWHAT'S SO BEAUTIFUL

ABOUT THIS COUNTRY.

Reporter: JOHN JESSUP,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Pat: THE PEOPLE WHO

LOVE THIS LAND ARE THOSE WHO

COME HERE FOR FREEDOM.

THEY APPRECIATE WHAT WE HAVE

IN THIS GREAT NATION.

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT

TO DO IN THIS GREAT LAND.

YOU OUGHT TO THANK GOD

YOU'RE LIVING IN SUCH A

WONDERFUL COMMUNITY.

PEOPLE DIED -- THEY HAVE

DIED, BLED, SUFFERED, WERE

TORMENTED, LOST EVERYTHING

THAT YOU AND I MIGHT HAVE

THESE FREEDOMS.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

BIONIC EYE, A BREATHALYZER

TO DETECT CANCER, AND A

DEVICE THAT HELPS

PARAPLEGICS RUN MARATHONS.

FIND OUT WHAT ALL THREE HAVE

IN COMMON WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: LIFE EXPECTANCY

IN ISRAEL IS FOUR YEARS

HIGHER THAN HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

MANY MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS

HAVE COME FROM THE JEWISH

STATE.

THEY INCLUDE GROUNDBREAKING

CANCER AND DIABETES

TREATMENTS, AS WELL AS

TECHNOLOGY TO HELP THE BLIND

SEE AND THE BLAME WALK.

TAKE A LOOK.

ON JANUARY 8, 2011, A

GUNMAN OPENED FIRE IN

TUCSON, ARIZONA.

HIS TARGET WAS CONGRESSWOMAN

GABRIELLE GIFFORDS, WHO WAS

SHOT IN THE HEAD AT

POINT-BLANK RANGE.

TO STOP THE BLEEDING,

E.M.T.s USED A SPECIAL

BANDAGE THAT PUTS PRESSURE

ON WOUNDS AND PREVENTS

INFECTION.

FIRST RESPONDERS SAID THE

BANDAGE SAVED GIFFORD'S

LIFE.

AND IT IS ONE OF MANY

MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS THAT

GOT ITS START IN ISRAEL.

ISRAEL HAS ONE OF THE

HIGHEST LIFE EXPECTANCIES IN

THE WORLD.

OUR LIFE EXPECTANCY HERE IS

ABOUT FOUR YEARS LONGER THAN

THE U.S.

IF ANYONE WANTS TO COME MOVE

TO ISRAEL, ON AVERAGE YOU'RE

GOING TO ADD FOUR YEARS TO

YOUR LIFE.

Gordon: FROM FIGHTING

CANCER, TO GIVING SIGHT TO

THE BLIND, TO MAKING THE

LAME WALK AGAIN, ISRAEL IS

LEADING THE WORLD IN MEDICAL

INNOVATION.

EVERY DAY MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS USE SOME KIND OF

MEDICAL TREATMENT THAT CAME

FROM ISRAEL.

FROM SAMBUCOL, A COLD AND

FLU MEDICATION, TO

AMNIOCENTESIS.

THERE IS A WIRELESS LASER

THAT WILL SOME DAY REPLACE

THE DENTIST'S DRILL, AND THE

BILL CAM, A TINY CAMERA IN A

CAPSULE.

IT TAKES PICTURES INSIDE

YOUR COLON, ELIMINATING THE

NEED FOR A COLONOSCOPY.

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF

THESE PROCEDURES ARE DONE

EVERY YEAR.

WHAT IF YOU CAN MAKE THEM

PAIN FREE AND NON-INVASIVE,

AND TAKE A LOT OF THE RISK

OUT OF THE PROCEDURE.

Gordon: IN THE FIELD OF

MEDICINE, FINDING A CURE FOR

CANCER IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

GOALS.

ALTHOUGH A FULL CURE IS

STILL IN THE FUTURE, ISRAELI

SCIENTISTS ARE MAKING HUGE

ADVANCES.

THE NEWS IS FULL OF STORIES

ABOUT DOGS WHO CAN SMELL

EVERYTHING FROM EPILEPSY TO

CANCER IN THEIR OWNERS.

SO ONE SCIENTIST TOOK THAT

IDEA AND REFINED IT.

THE DOGS CAN SMELL

CANCER, THEN WE FOR SURE CAN

DO IT IN A LITTLE MORE

SOPHISTICATED WAY.

WE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH A

DEVICE MUCH BETTER THAN WE

CAN COMMUNICATE WITH A DOG.

Gordon: HASSAM

DEVELOPED AN EARLY WARNING

SYSTEM FOR CANCER.

THE NANO ARTIFICIAL NOSE CAN

DETECT TUMORS BEFORE THEY'RE

EVEN VISIBLE ON X-RAYS, JUST

BY ANALYZING A PATIENT'S

BREATH.

THE DEVICE CAN GIVE THE

RESULTS WITHIN FIVE MINUTES

TO ONE HOUR, MORE OR LESS.

MANY OF THE THç DIAGNOSTICç

TOOLS REQUIRES TO FOLLOW

THIS IN ORDER TO MAKE IT

POSSIBLE.

WE DON'T EXPOSE IT TO ANY

RISKY X-RAYS OR BEAMS THAT

MIGHT MAKE CANCER BY

THEMSELVES.

Gordon: THE ARTIFICIAL

NOSE IS STILL IN CLINICAL

TRIALS, WHERE THE ACCURACY

RATES RANGE FROM 86% TO

97%.

AND IT IS ALSO BEING

CUSTOMIZED TO SNIFF OUT

OTHER DISEASES AS WELL, LIKE

ALZHEIMER'S, PARKINSON'S,

AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

WE WANT TO BRING THIS

DEVICE TO EVERYBODY, WHETHER

THESE PEOPLE LIVE IN THE

WESTERN COUNTRIES OR THEY

LIVE IN THE THIRD WORLD,

BECAUSE LEGALLY WE HAVE TO

FULFILL A LITTLE BIT

DEMOCRACY.

Gordon: OTHER ISRAELI

SCIENTISTS ARE FOCUSING ON

THE TREATMENT OF CANCER, AND

THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING

FROM BURNING TUMORS WITH

THERMAL HEAT TO FREEZING

THEM WITH LIQUID NITROGEN.

ONE DOCTOR IS EVEN

DEVELOPING A VACCINE FOR

CANCER.

IT TRAINS THE BODY'S IMMUNE

CELLS TO ATTACK A SPECIFIC

MOLECULE FOUND ONLY IN

CANCER.

AND SINCE ONLY THE CANCER

CELLS ARE TARGETED, THE

VACCINES HAS NO SIDE EFFECTS

LIKE CHEMO AND RADIATION.

WITH ONE SHOT EVERY MONTH,

THE BODY'S IMMUNE SYSTEM

WILL KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL.

WE ARE EDUCATING THE

SYSTEM TO DO WHAT IT WOULD

TRY TO DO ITSELF.

WE'RE NOT INVENTING

ANYTHING.

Gordon: IN THE FIRST

CLINICAL TRIAL, THE VACCINE

SUCCESSFULLY TRIGGERED THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM IN ALL 15

PATIENTS.

YOU ARE SEEING THE

FUTURE.

I THINK WE ARE ENTERING A

FIELD WHICH IS VERY

ATTRACTIVE, AND WE JUST

SCRATCHED THE BEGINNING OF

THIS.

WE HAVE LOTS OF SMALL THINGS

TO COME.

I'M VERY ENCOURAGED BY WHAT

I'VE SEEN.

Gordon: IN 1829, THE

INTRODUCTION OF BRAILLE

REVOLUTION NIDE

REVOLUTIONIZED THE WAY BLIND

PEOPLE READ AND WRITE.

TODAY ISRAELI INVENTORS ARE

TAKING THAT REVOLUTION A

STEP FURTHER.

FOR PEOPLE WITH LIMITED

SIGHT, THERE IS A NEW DEVICE

CALLED THE ORCAM.

IT IS A POCKET-SIZED

COMPUTER, LINKED TO A SMALL

CAMERA THAT CLIPPED ON TO

YOUR GLASSES.

THE CAMERA SEES WHAT YOU

SEE.

AND WHEN YOU POINT YOUR

FINGER AT SOMETHING, THE

ORCAM WILL READ IT FOR YOU.

EVERYTHING FROM ME MENUS TO

STREET SIGNS.

AND FOR THOSE WITH TOTAL

VISION LOSS, THERE IS

PROJECT RAY, THE FIRST EVER

SMARTPHONE FOR THE BLIND.

WITH THE TAP OF A FINGER,

USERS CAN MAKE PHONE CALLS,

SEND TEXTS, AND EVEN SURF

THE WEB.

WHILE THESE INVENTIONS ARE

GIVING BLIND PEOPLE MORE

INDEPENDENCE, ANOTHER ONE IS

ACTUALLY RESTORING THEIR

SIGHT.

A COMPANY CALLED NANO RETINA

IS FOCUSING ON PEOPLE WHO

HAVE LOST THEIR SIGHT FROM

MACULAR DEGENERATION.

THEY HAVE CREATED THE BIONIC

EYE.

AN IMPLANT THAT PROVIDES

USERS WITH GREAT SCALE

VISION, A BIG IMPROVEMENT

OVER TOTAL BLINDNESS.

NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER

OF ALL INVENTIONS.

AND ISRAELIS SOMETIMES TEND

TO THINK OUTSIDE OF THE

BOX.

IF THERE IS AN OBSTACLE, WE

DO NOT HIT OUR FOREHEAD AT

THE OBSTACLE, BUT WE GO

AROUND IT.

WE FOUND A SOLUTION.

ONE OF THOSE SOLUTIONS IS

GIVING NEW LIFE TO PEOPLE

WHO WERE TOLD THEY WOULD

NEVER WALK AGAIN.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY

WE HAVE THE ONLY SOLUTION

FOR A PARALYZED PERSON.

Gordon: IN THE 1997, A

MAN WAS PARALYZED IN A CAR

ACCIDENT.

SINCE THEN, HE WAS BEEN ON A

MISSION TO PUT THE

WHEELCHAIR OUT OF

COMMISSION.

HE DESIGNED A BRACE THAT

HELPS PARAPLEGICS TO WALK

AND EVEN DRIVE A CAR.

IRONICALLY, HE COULDN'T USE

HIS OWN INVENTION.

SINCE HE IS A QUADRIPLEGIC,

AND THE DEVICE REQUIRES THE

USE OF THE ARM.

BUT HE SOON FOUND A VETERAN

WHO WAS MORE THAN WILLING TO

TRY IT.

WHEN THE DOCTOR TOLD ME

THAT I'M LUCKY TO BE ALIVE

BUT MY INJURY WOULD LEAVE MY

PARALYZED, EVERYTHING BECAME

DARK.

Gordon: RODNEY IS A

FORMER ISRAELI PARATROOPER

WHO WAS INJURED IN SOUTH

LEBANON.

IN ONE OF THE

REHABILITATION CENTERS IN

CENTRAL ISRAEL, I MET AMID

GOFFER.

HE TOLD ME HE HAD DEVELOPED

A DEVICE THAT HELPS A

PARAPLEGIC IN MY CONDITION

TO WALK.

I DIDN'T BELIEVE I WOULD BE

ABLE TO STAND UP.

AFTER I TRIED IT AND THE

DEVICE MADE ME STAND UP, I

WAS AMAZED.

MY DAUGHTER WAS THREE YEARS

OLD BACK THEN.

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID,

DAD, YOU ARE TALL.

THAT MADE MY DAY.

IT IS EXCITING.

THEN YOU WANT TO CRY.

THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME I

WAS REALLY EXCITED.

Reporter: RODNEY

STARTED USING THE REWALK SIX

YEARS AGO.

AND SINCE THEN THE DEVICE

HAS GONE GLOBAL.

IN 2012, A YOUNG WOMAN NAMED

CLAIRE LOMAS USED THE REWALK

IN THE LONDON MARATHON.

SHE WALKED THE 26 MILES IN

17 DAYS, EARNING HER THE

NICKNAME BIONIC WOMAN.

I REMEMBER THIS THE REST

OF MY LIFE.

I DANCE FOUR TIMES A

WEEK, AND I LOVE IT VERY

MUCH.

AND I KNEW I'M NOT GOING TO

STOP JUST BECAUSE I'M

DIABETIC.

Gordon: SHY BARSHIA IS

A DANCER, A STUDENT, AND A

TYPE 1 DIP BETIC.

1 DIABETIC.

SHE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST

PEOPLE TO TRY A NEW ISRAELI

MEDICAL DEVICE, THE

ARTIFICIAL PANCREAS.

IT IS STILL IN THE

EXPERIMENTAL STATE, AND

RIGHT NOW IT IS JUST A

LAPTOP, WITH A SERIES THAT

MONITORS THE PATIENT.

DR. MOSHAE PHILLIP IS ONE OF

THE DEVELOPERS.

IT IS MY PLEASURE THAT

ONE DAY WE WILL GET RID OF

THE NEEDLE.

WE WOULD LIKE TO ENABLE OUR

PATIENTS TO LIVE THEIR LIVES

WITHOUT THINKING OF THEIR

DIABETES ALL OF THE TIME.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND TYPE

1 DIABETES, ESPECIALLY

DURING CHILDHOOD, IS

SOMETHING THAT KEEPS YOU

BUSY THE ENTIRE DAY.

IT'S THERE ALL OF THE TIME.

Reporter: DR. PHILIP

OVERSAW CLINICAL TRIALS FOR

CHILDREN IN ISRAEL,

SLOVENIA, AND GERMANY.

BUT HE WAS THE FIRST ONE TO

SHY WAS THE FIRST ONE TO USE

THE MEDICAL DEVICE WITHOUT

MEDICAL SUPERVISION.

IT TELLS ME THAT I HAVE

TO EAT RIGHT AWAY.

AND IF MY LEVELS GO VERY

HIGH, IT FIXES MY LEVEL.

IT CALCULATES HOW MUCH

INSULIN I SHOULD TAKE, AND

IT GIVES AN AUTOMATIC ORDER

TO MY PUMP TO GIVE ME THE

INSULIN.

AND I'M MORE BALANCED THAN I

WAS WHEN I WENT TO SLEEP,

AND THAT'S AMAZING.

I THINK WE ARE GOING TO

CHANGE THE LIVES OF OUR

PATIENTS.

AND THIS IS THE ENTIRE IDEA,

TO BRING BACK THE

SPONTANEITY TO THE LIVES OF

OUR PATIENTS.

FREEDOM FROM BEING BUSY WITH

THINKING ABOUT HOW TO

CONTROL THE BLOOD GLUCOSE

LEVELS ALL OF THE TIME.

I FEEL THERE IS SO MUCH

EFFORT MADE TO HELP THE

DIABETICS.

THEY'RE, LIKE, YOU KNOW

WHAT?

YOU HAVE THIS DISEASE, BUT

NO WORRIES.

WE'RE TRYING TO CURE IT AND

MAKE THE TREATMENTS BETTER

AND MORE COMFORTABLE, AND

WE'LL GET THERE.

FEELING THAT I HELPED OTHER

PEOPLE, TOO, IT GIVES ME THE

STRENGTH TO KEEP ON.

IF I'M A PART OF SOMETHING

BIG, I FEEL THAT I'M NOT

ALONE IN THIS BUSINESS.

AND IT GIVES YOU A LOT OF

HOPE.

Terry: THESE AMAZING

CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE

NATION OF ISRAEL TO THE

WORLD, REALLY, BRINGING HOPE

TO ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU CAN

FIND OTHER MADE IN ISRAEL

STORIES BY GOING TO OUR

SPECIAL SECTION ON

CBN.COM.

SO CHECK THAT OUT.

I THINK YOU'LL BE VERY

IMPRESSED.

Pat: YOU KNOW, TERRY, I

JUST WAS WATCHING THAT, AND

I'M THINKING, YOU KNOW, IF

THE ARAB NATIONS SURROUNDING

ISRAEL WOULD GIVE UP ALL OF

THE HATRED AND BITTERNESS

AND SAY WE HAVE A NEIGHBOR

THAT HAS BLESSINGS THAT

WOULD JUST OVERFLOW TO US,

AND IF THEY WOULD SHARE

THOSE BLESSINGS --

Terry: THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN THE JEALOUS BROTHER

AND THE ONE WHO SAYS LET'S

LINK ARMS TOGETHER.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

THE ISRAELIS HAVE SO MUCH TO

GIVE.

THEY'RE INTENDED TO BE A

BLESSING IN THE NATIONS.

WHY NOT SHARE IT?

WHY NOT ENJOY THIS WONDERFUL

MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY INSTEAD

OF, YOU KNOW, SAYING THOSE

JEWISH, I'M GOING TO KILL

THEM.

THEY STOLE MY LAND KIND OF

THING.

HEY, THAT'S A WONDERFUL

SERIES.

Terry: IT IS.

THEY'RE BLESSING THE WORLD.

Pat: IT'S SO

HEART-MOVING.

OKAY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT

ON."

JAMIE SAYS, "MY 15-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER WAS ASKED BY CREEP

TO SEND HIM SOME PICTURES OF

HER.

WE REPORTED HIM TO THE

POLICE, AND THE GOVERNMENT

WOULDN'T PROSECUTE HIM.

HOW CAN I PROTECT MY CHILD?

AM I ALLOWED TO TAKE JUSTICE

INTO MY OWN HANDS?"

PAT ANSWERS THAT HOT POTATO

COMING UP.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

KENTUCKY WILL HAVE TO HIRE

AN OUTSIDE ATTORNEY TO

APPEAL A RECENT COURT

DECISION FAVORING GAY

MARRIAGE IN THE STATE.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL THERE SAYS

HE WILL NOT FIGHT THE ORDER

RECOGNIZING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGES FROM OTHER STATES

AND COUNTRIES.

A FEDERAL JUDGE RULED LAST

MONTH KENTUCKY'S VOTER

APPROVED BAN ON RECOGNIZING

SUCH COUPLES VIOLATES THE@

CONSTITUTION.

TUESDAY KENTUCKY

ATTORNEY-GENERAL JACK

CONAWAY SAID TO APPEAL THAT

RULING WOULD BE TO DEFEND

DISCRIMINATION.

THE STATE'S GOVERNOR SAYS HE

WILL HIRE OUTSIDE COUNSEL

FOR AN APPEAL.

A VETERANS' GROUP IS ASKING

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT TO

OVERRULE AN ORDER REMOVING A

WAR MEMORIAL CROSS FROM A

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

MOUNTAIN.

IN 2011, A FEDERAL COURT

RULED THE CROSS WAS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL BECAUSE IT

IS AN ENDORSEMENT OF

CHRISTIANITY ON FEDERAL

PROPERTY.

LAST DECEMBER A DISTRICT

JUDGE ORDERED THE CROSS

REMOVED IN 90 DAYS.

THE ASSOCIATION IS ASKING

THAT THE CROSS REMAIN ATOP

THE MOUNTAIN IN SAN DIEGO.

THEY HOPE THEY WILL QUICKLY

RESOLVE THE CASE.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

*

Terry: TIME TO "BRING

IT ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

THIS FIRST ONE COMES, PAT,

FROM JAMIE, WHO SAYS, "MY

15-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER WAS

ASKED BY SOME CREEP TO SEND

HIM SOME PICTURES OF HER.

WE REPORTED HIM TO THE

POLICE, AND THEY GOT HIS

CELL PHONE RECORDS AND EVEN

GOT A CONFESSION FROM HIM.

HIS PENALTY?

NOTHING.

THE GOVERNMENTç WOULDN'T

PROSECUTE HIM.

NUMBER ONE, HOWD9 I

PROTECT MY CHILD?

AND, NUMBER TWO, AM I

ALLOWED TO TAKE JUSTICE INTO

MY OWN HANDS?"

Pat: YOU WANT TO GET A

..44 MAGNUM AND BLOW THAT

SUCKER AWAY?

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT?

NO, DON'T!

YOU CANNOT TAKE JUSTICE INTO

YOUR OWN HANDS.

YOU WILL WIND UP IN JAIL

INSTEAD OF THE CREEP.

LISTEN, UNFORTUNATELY THE

INTERNET IS PERVASIVE, AND

PARENTS HAVE GOT TO WATCH

WHAT THEIR CHILDREN ARE

DOING.

THOSE KIDS ARE OUT THERE,

INNOCENT, AND I WANT TO SHOW

SOME PICTURES TO MY

BOYFRIEND.

AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

THAT PICTURE GOES VIRAL AND

THESE PREDATORS ARE AFTER

THEM.

THE PENALTIES FOR CHILD

PORNOGRAPHY ARE VERY

EXTREME.

BUT THE PROBLEM IS WE HAVE

SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT.

ONE MINUTE YOU'VE GOT SOME

LITTLE 6-YEAR-OLD BEING

ACCUSED OF SEXUAL

MOLESTATION OF SOME LITTLE

GIRL, WHEN ALL HE WANTS TO

DO IS HOLD HER HAND AND KISS

HER, WHICH LITTLE BABIES

DO.

I MEAN, IT'S CRAZY.

AND YET YOU'VE GOT AN ADULT

CONFESSED PREDATOR WHO THEY

DON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT.

TRY TO GET YOUR LAW

CHANGED.

TRY TO GET THE LAW

ENFORCEMENT TO MOBILIZE.

THERE ARE LAWS ON THE BOOKS

THAT TAKE CARE OF THIS SORT

OF THING.

BUT THE BEST THING, AS A

PARENT, WATCH WHAT YOUR

CHILD IS LOOKING AT ON THE

INTERNET.

TALK TO THEM.

Terry: TALK TO THEM.

YES, YES, YES.

Pat: EXPLAIN WHAT'S OUT

THERE.

Terry: THIS IS SHARON

WHO SAYS, "I HEARD MY PASTOR

READ FROM MACCABEE 7 ON

SUNDAY, BUT I DIDN'T FIND IT

IN MY BIBLE.

WHAT HAPPENED?"

Pat: WELL, THE CENSORS

GOT IT -- NO.

THERE IS A THING CALLED THE

APOCAFER, WHICH SOME OF THE

CATHOLIC BIBLES HAVE AND

OTHERS DON'T HAVE IT.

IT ISN'T CONSIDERED BY THE

JEWS OR THE PROTESTANTS AS

PART OF TH THE CANONS OF

SCRIPTURE.

THE MACCABEES WERE IN CHARGE

OF ISRAEL DURING THE

SO-CALLED INTERTEST

INTERTESTIMENTAL SYRIA.

THEY BEAT HIM, ACTUALLY,

JUDAS MACCABEE.

IT IS A STORY OF TRIUMPH OF

THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

BUT IT ISN'T PART OF THE

BIBLE.

IT ISN'T THERE BECAUSE IT

NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE.

Terry: THIS IS DENISE

WHO SAYS, "I KNOW THE

PHARISEES HAD THEIR

PROBLEMS, BUT IT SEEMED THEY

ACTED IN LARGE PART OUT OF

GENUINE LOVE AND RESPECT FOR

GOD.

THEY JUST WENT ABOUT IT THE

WRONG WAY.

DO THEY STILL GO TO

HEAVEN?"

Pat: LOOK, I HAVE NO

IDEA IF THE PHARISEES ARE

GOING TO HEAVEN OR NOT.

BUT THE THING IS THEY WANTED

TO KILL THE SON OF GOD, SO

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY THEY WERE

GOOD GUYS.

THEY WERE SO OBSESSED WITH

THEIR FORM OF WORSHIP THAT

THEY WERE WILLING TO PUT

JESUS CHRIST TO DEATH ON THE

CROSS BECAUSE HE HEALED A

MAN ON THE SABBATH DAY.

THEY HAD PUT FORM ABOVE

REALITY.

AND HE SAID, YOU KNOW, YOU

TITHE MINT AND DILL AND

CURMIN, BUT YOU OMIT THE

WEIGHTIER MATTERS OF THE

LAW, LOVE AND JUSTICE.

ARE THEY GOING TO HEAVEN?

I DON'T KNOW.

Terry: THIS IS GLENDA

WHO SAYS, "WHAT DOES IT MEAN

TO PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM.

I KNOW I SHOULD, BUT I WOULD

LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IT REALLY

MEANS?

WHAT WOULD PEACE LOOK LIKE?

MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS

LIVING SIDE BY SIDE, OR

WOULD IT MEAN THE

ERADICATION OF

NON-BELIEVERS?"

Pat: NO.

IT WOULD MEAN THE RULE OF

THE MESSIAH OVER ALL OF THE

WORLD.

THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM I

THINK MEANS GOD'S PEACE

WOULD BE OVER ALL OF THE

UNIVERSE AND EVIL WOULD BE

PUT AWAY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SATAN

BEING BOUND, AND THE TH THE

THE MILLENNIUM RAIN COMING

IN.

WE'RE LOOKING AT WHEN JESUS

CHRIST IS IN CHARGE OF

EVERYTHING, AND HE BRINGS

PEACE, LOVE, JOY, AND

HAPPINESS TO THE WORLD.

THAT IS WHAT THE PRAYER IS,

I BELIEVE.

Terry: THY KINGDOM

COME.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR TODAY'S E-MAILS.

RIGHT NOW, I WOULD LIKE TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO A WOMAN

NAMED MARCY.

SHE LIVED WITH THE SHAME OF

NOT ONE, NOT TWO, BUT THREE

ABORTIONS.

THIS IS THE STORY OF HOW

MARCY WAS HEALED OF THAT

SHAME AND HOW SHE LEARNED TO

HELP OTHER WOMEN AS WELL.

Reporter: AT FOUR YEARS

OLD, MARCY SCHNEIDER DIDN'T

REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT

DIVORCE MEANT.

ALL SHE KNEW WAS THAT BOTH

HER PARENTS STARTED NEW

FAMILIES AND SHE MISSED

THEIR ATTENTION.

SHE BECAME A CHRISTIAN AS A

CHILD, BUT IT WAS HER

GRANDCHILD WHO GAVE HER THE

AFFECTION SHE LONGED FOR.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS

EVERYTHING TO ME.

AND PROBABLY SOMEONE THAT I

REALLY FELT LIKE GAVE ME

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

Reporter: HE THEN HER

GRANDFATHER PASSED AWAY, AND

MARCY FOUND LOVE ELSEWHERE.

I LOST MY VIRGINITY AT A

PARTY.

I THINK IT WAS TRYING TO

FILL THE LOSTNESS.

FEELING THAT SOMEONE CARED

ENOUGH TO HAVE SEX WITH ME.

Reporter: AT 16 SHE HAD

BECOME PREGNANT.

SHE TOLD HER MOM, EXPECTING

SHE WOULD GIVE HER SUPPORT.

BUT HER MOM ONLY WANTED A

QUICK, QUIET SOLUTION, AND

ARRANGED FOR MARCY TO HAVE

AN ABORTION.

SO IT WASN'T EVEN REALLY

A THOUGHT PROCESS.

IT WAS, LIKE, WE'RE GOING TO

FIX THIS BECAUSE NO ONE CAN

KNOW.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A

DISGRACE TO THE FAMILY FOR

ANYONE TO KNOW I WAS

PREGNANT.

I THINK THAT HER RESPONDING

LIKE THAT KIND OF ADDED TO

MY EMPTINESS.

THERE IS ANOTHER VOID,

ANOTHER PLACE WHERE I NEED

SOMEONE TO LOVE ME

UNCONDITIONALLY.

Reporter: SIX MONTHS

LATER SHE BECAME PREGNANT

AGAIN.

THIS TIME SHE KEPT IT FROM

HER PARENTS AND WENT IN FOR

A SECOND ABORTION.

I FELT LIKE THERE WAS NO

OTHER WAY.

AND I FELT LIKE THERE WAS

NOTHING ANYONE COULD HAVE

DONE OR SAID TO CHANGE IT.

Reporter: LATER SHE

MARRIED SOMEONE FROM SCHOOL,

AND THEY HAD A DAUGHTER,

BRITTANY.

BUT THE MARRIAGE DIDN'T LAST

MORE THAN A YEAR.

AFTER A FEW YEARS, SHE MET

MARK AND FELL IN LOVE.

IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE SHE

WAS PREGNANT ONCE AGAIN.

I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO

LEAVE.

AND I THOUGHT IF HE FELT

TIED TO ME FROM A CHILD,

THEN HE WOULDN'T WANT TO

STAY.

Reporter: SO MARCY HAD

ANOTHER ABORTION, BUT THIS

TIME SOMETHING WAS

DIFFERENT.

HAD A LOT OF SHAME.

AND THEY SHOWED ME MY BABY

ON THE ULTRASOUND.

AND I DIDN'T THINK THERE WAS

ANY OTHER CHOICE.

AND I WENT THROUGH WITH IT,

EVEN AFTER THAT.

THAT'S REALLY BEEN THE

HARDEST ONE TO DEAL WITH.

Reporter: MARCY TRIED

TO PUSH HER THOUGHTS ASIDE

AND MOVE ON.

EVENTUALLY SHE AND MARK

MARRIED AND HAD A SON,

BROCK.

NOW THAT SHE HAD A FAMILY,

MARCY STARTED GOING TO

CHURCH, LIKE SHE DID GROWING

UP.

BUT THAT WASN'T ENOUGH TO

EASE THE BURDEN OF GUILT SHE

WAS CARRYING.

IN MY HEART I KNEW IT WAS

WRONG.

EVERYTHING I DID WAS JUST

GETTING ME A LITTLE BIT

FURTHER FROM GOD.

Reporter: MARCY LEARNED

ABOUT A GROUP CALLED

"CONQUERERS."

THEY HELP WOMAN WHO HAD

ABORTIONS TO FIND

FORGIVENESS AND HEALING FROM

JESUS CHRIST.

IT WAS THERE SHE FOUND

HOPE.

GOD WAS TRYING SO HARD TO

SAY, LET ME HEAL YOU.

IT'S OKAY.

I'VE FORGIVEN YOU.

Reporter: SHE

REDEDICATED HER LIFE TO

CHRIST.

I LEARNED THAT GOD DOES

FORGIVE, AND I ALSO LEARNED

THAT GOD IS A COMFORTER.

AND HE IS NOT A PERSON, AND

SO FOR ME TO TRY TO FORGIVE

IT OUT, ANALYZE IN MY MIND,

HOW COULD HE FORGIVE ME OVER

AND OVER AGAIN, I FORGOT

ABOUT THAT.

I SURROUNDED MYSELF TO THE

LORD AND SAID, DO WITH ME

WHAT YOU WILL.

Reporter: SHE ALSO

FORGAVE HER MOTHER.

SHE SAID SHE WAS SORRY

FOR WHAT SHE HAD DONE.

AND IT REALLY OPENED THE

DOOR FOR OUR RELATIONSHIP.

AND OUR RELATIONSHIP IS A

LOT BETTER.

I MEAN, IT'S WONDERFUL NOW.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, MARCY HAS GROWN IN

CHRIST.

SHE STAYS BUSY WITH FAMILY,

CHURCH, AND HER NEW JOB AT

THE ARLINGTON PREGNANCY

CENTER.

SHE HOPES THAT SHARING HER

STORY WILL HELP YOUNG WOMEN

MAKE A BETTER CHOICE.

I DO FEEL GOOD ABOUT

BEING ABLE TO CONNECT WITH

WOMEN.

SOMEONE CAN SIT IN THERE AND

READ THEM INFORMATION ABOUT

ABORTION, AND READ THEM

INFORMATION ABOUT

PRE-MARITAL SEX.

BUT FOR SOMEONE TO TALK TO

THEM AND SAY, I WOULD GIVE

ANYTHING TO GO BACK AND

CHANGE IT, THAT'S

DIFFERENT.

Reporter: MARCY SAYS

NOT ONLY HAS CHRIST GIVEN

HER FREEDOM FROM SHAME, HE

ALSO GIVES HER UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE.

GOD HAS DEFINITELY FILLED

VOIDS IN MY LIFE BY SPENDING

TIME WITH HIM AND GETTING TO

KNOW HIM.

GOD IS MY SAVIOR, MY REDEEM

MORMY REDEEMER, MY

PROVIDER, EVERYTHING.

Terry: THE ONE WHO HAS

BEEN GIVEN MUCH LOVES MUCH.

THERE ARE SOMETIMES IN OUR

LIVES WHERE IN OUR HUMANITY&-AND OUR WEAKNESS, THINGS

HAPPEN.

AND WE PANIC.

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

WE MAKE CHOICES THAT DOWN

THE ROAD WE DEEPLY, DEEPLY

REGRET.

GOD SO KNOWS OUR WEAKNESS.

HE KNOWS OUR FLESH.

HE IS ALWAYS THERE FOR US.

YOU KNOW, HE HAS A BETTER

WAY.

IT IS WHY HE CALLS US TO A

DIFFERENT WAY OF LIVING,

BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS THAT

THERE ARE CERTAIN CHOICES

THAT IN THOSE MOMENTS OF

PANIC OR ANGER OR DISPAIR,

WE MAKE DECISIONS THAT HARM

US.

THAT HARM OUR VERY SOULS.

HE DOESN'T WANT THAT FOR

US.

HE WANTS US TO KNOW HE IS

ABLE.

HE IS ABLE TO COME INTO THE

MIDST OF OUR HURT AND PAIN

AND BRING ANSWERS.

BRING HOPE.

BRING NEW LIFE.

AND YET, EVEN WHEN WE DON'T

LISTEN, EVEN WHEN WE DECIDE

WE KNOW BETTER OR WE WANT A

FAST, QUICK SOLUTION TO

SOMETHING, EVEN WHEN WE TAKE

THINGS INTO OUR OWN HANDS

AND WEç MAKE A CHOICE THAT ISTAE OPPOSITE OF WHAT HE

CALLS US TO DO, EVEN THEN HE

LOVES US.

WHO CAN UNDERSTAND THAT KIND

OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE?

IT'S SO NOT THE WAY WE LOVE

AS HUMAN BEINGS.

AND YET GOD DOES LOVE US

THAT WAY.

IN MARCY'S STORY, NOT ONLY

DID SHE NEED TO UNDERSTAND

GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR

HER, SHE NEEDED TO FORGIVE

HERSELF, AS WELL AS HER MOM,

BUT HERSELF AS WELL.

SOMETIMES THAT'S THE HARDEST

PERSON IN THE WORLD TO

FORGIVE.

NOT THE ONE WHO HAS

NECESSARILY WRONGED US, BUT

JUST OURSELVES FOR THE

CHOICES THAT WE'VE MADE, FOR

OUR OWN LACK OF INTEGRITY,

OUR OWN SELFISHNESS.

MAYBE YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED

SOME OF THAT IN YOUR LIFE

AND YOU FEEL THAT LOST

HOPELESSNESS.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MATTER?

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

IT MATTERS AND IT ALL MEANS

SOMETHING.

GOD IS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU,

RIGHT NOW, IN THE MIDST OF

YOUR LOSTNESS AND YOUR

DISPAIR, AND HE IS SAYING,

LET ME LOVE YOU.

LET ME FORGIVE YOU.

LET ME GIVE YOU A BRAND NEW

BEGINNING.

A START OVER.

WOULD YOU LET HIM DO THAT

FOR YOU TODAY?

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHAT

YOU'VE DONE, GOD LOVES YOU

AND THERE IS A PLAN AND A

PURPOSE THAT HE WANTS TO

INVITE YOU TO BE A PART OF.

YOU NEED TO BEGIN BY ASKING

HIM INTO YOUR LIFE, BY

SAYING, GOD, I'M NOT GOING

TO INSIST ON DOING IT MY

WAY.

I WANT TO DO IT YOUR WAY.

AND SO ASK JESUS, THE ONE

WHO DIED FOR OUR SINS, THE

ONE WHO LOVES YOU BEYOND

YOUR IMAGINING, TO COME INTO

YOUR HEART.

ASK HIM TO FORGIVE YOUR

SINS.

HE ALREADY KNOWS ALL OF

THEM.

BUT ASK HIM FOR

FORGIVENESS.

IT IS YOURS, FREE FOR THE

ASKING.

AND THEN ASK HIM TO FILL YOU

WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT.

GOD CAN CHANGE THE WAY WE

THINK.

HE CAN TAKE AWAY HABITS THAT

HAVE CONTROLLED US.

HE CAN SET US FREE.

PUT OUR FEET ON A ROCK AND

GIVE US A BRAND NEW

BEGINNING.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT TODAY.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO PRAY WITH

SOMEONE, CALL THAT TOLL-FREE

NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO GIVE

ANYONE YOUR NAME.

JUST ASK THEM TO PRAY WITH

YOU TODAY.

PAT?

Pat: THAT'S, TERRY.

I WANT TO REMIND PEOPLE,

THOSE PHONES ARE AVAILABLE,

EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT ON THE

AIR.

THE PHONES STAY OPEN ALL OF

THE TIME HERE AT CBN.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH THE

POWER MINUTE FROM ISAIAH 44:

"FOR I WILL POUR WATER ON

HIM WHO IS THIRSTY AND

FLOODS ON THE DRY GROUND.

I WILL POUR MY SPIRIT ON

YOUR DESCENDENTS, AND MY

BLESSING ON YOUR

OFFSPRING."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

WE'RE GOING TO BE, AGAIN, ON

"THE 700 CLUB" TOMORROW.

WE'VE GOT BASEBALL'S ICONIC

RIGHT-FIELDER, GLEN WILSON.

ALL OF THAT IS ON TOMORROW.

UNTIL THEN, FOR TERRY AND

ALL OF US, WE'LL SEE YOU.

BYE-BYE.
