The 700 Club - March 6, 2014

Glenn Wilson's All-Star baseball career is interrupted by injuries and a pain pill addiction begins. Plus, even though Resia's arthritis in her shoulder is debilitating, it’s no match for God's miraculous power. Read Transcript


YOU CAN SEE THE PATTERN.

AN AMERICAN CRISIS.

NO FATHER, NO FATHER, NO

FATHER.

HOW ONE SIMPLE PROGRAM

COULD SAVE OUR NATION.

IT'S DOABLE.

PLUS...THE PHILLY WITH

THE GOLDEN ARM.

SO MUCH EXCITEMENT.

AND THE CRIPPLING

ADDICTION.

I WENT TO MY DOCTOR THE

NEXT DAY, AND I CHEWED HIS

BUTT OUT.

WE HAVE ALL-STAR GLEN

WILSON ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

HEADLINES -- THE NEWS SHOWS

THAT AS MANY AS 500,000

PEOPLE ARE DYING EVERY YEAR

FROM ALZHEIMER'S.

THAT FIGURE HAS BEEN

SUPPRESSED FOR YEARS.

NOW IT IS COMING OUT, THE

TRAGIC -- IT IS THE GREATEST

KILLER IN OUR SOCIETY.

SECONDLY, IT LOOKS LIKE THE

RUSSIANS ARE ENGINEERING A

VOTE TO MAKE THE CRIMEA A

PART OF RUSSIA, WE'LL TELL

YOU ABOUT THAT LATER ON.

AND THE QUESTION IS: HOW

MUCH HURT CAN THE

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

AGENT SEE DO TO OUR

SOCIETY?

IT HAS BEEN CALLED THE WAR

ON COAL.

THE E.P.A. IS PUTTING OUT

STRICT REGULATIONS IN THE

FIGHT AGAINST WHAT THEY CALL

GLOBAL WARMING, EVEN THOUGH

SOME MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SAY

THESE RULES ARE JOB

KILLERS.

Terry: AND SOME

ECONOMISTS WARN IT COULD

ALSO BE A WAR ON

MANUFACTURING AND OTHER

BUSINESSES, TOO, AND IT

COULD DRIVE UP YOUR UTILITY

BILLS.

PAUL STRAND HAS THE STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THE

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

AGENT SEE DECIDED IN LATE

2009 THAT CARBON DIOXIDE IS

A POLLUTANT, AND THEREFORE

THEY COULD REGULATE IT UNDER

THE CLEAN AIR ACT.

THAT SENT THE E.P.A. LOOSE.

FOR INSTANCE, IT HAS COME

OUT ON NEW REGULATIONS SO

STRICT, SOME IN CONGRESS SAY

IT AMOUNTS TO A WAR ON

COAL.

THIS WAR ON COAL IS GOING

TO COST THOUSANDS OF JOBS,

THOSE THAT WORK IN THE

MINING INDUSTRY, AS WELL AS

THOSE WHO ARE DEPOSIT

DEPENDENT UPON THE

AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE ENERGY

THAT COAL PROVIDES.

Reporter: COAL GIVES

AMERICA 40% OF ITS

ELECTRICITY.

IT IS SURE TO MEAN HIGHER

ENERGY PRICES.

IT IS FUNDAMENTALLY

IMMORAL FOR THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT TO PUT

HARD-WORKING, MIDDLE-CLASS

AMERICAN FAMILIES INTO

ECONOMIC DISTRESS, AND THAT

IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS WAR ON

COAL DOES.

LET'S TALK ABOUT OUR

SENIOR CITIZENS ON FIXED

INCOMES.

IF THESE REGULATIONS GO

FORTH, IT IS GOING TO BE

IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO COOL

THEIR HOMES IN THE SUMMER

AND HEAT THEM IN THE

WINTER.

SO IF YOU WANT TO TAKE

LOW-INCOME, WORKING MOMS AND

DADS AND SINGLE PARENTS, AND

MAKE THEIR LIVES MORE

MISERABLE, MORE DIFFICULT,

MAKE THEIR PAYCHECKS GO LESS

FAR, THESE ARE THE

REGULATIONS THAT WILL DO

IT.

Reporter: BUT THE

E.P.A. AND ITS ALLIES SAY

UNFETTERED GLOBAL WARMING

WILL DESTROY CROPS AND BE

MUCH MORE DEVASTATING TO THE

ECONOMY.

SOME LAWMAKERS SAY THERE IS

A DEEPER ISSUE, THAT RULE BY

THE PRESIDENT IS DANGEROUS

FOR THE ECONOMY.

THEY SAID IF YOU LET THE

EXECUTIVE LEGISLATE, THERE

WILL BE A TYPE OF TYRANNY.

AND THIS IS A TYPE OF

TYRANNY, AND WE WILL FIGHT

IT BECAUSE IT GOES AGAINST

EVERYTHING WE STAND FOR.

Reporter: MANY SAY THE

BOOM IN CLEANER NATURAL GAS

SAY IT CAN REPLACE COAL.

AND SOME IN THE NATURAL GAS

INDUSTRY ARE CHEERING NOW.

THE NATURAL GAS INDUSTRY

THINKS THEY'RE VERY CLEVER.

Reporter: PHIL KERPIN,

AUTHOR OF "DEMOCRACY

DENIED."

THE SIERRA CLUB HAS

ANNOUNCED THE SEQUEL TO

THEIR "BEYOND COAL"

CAMPAIGN, AND THEY SAY THEY

WILL SUE.

WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA GOT

ELECTED, HE SAID, UNDER MY

PLAN, ELECTRICITY RATES

WOULD NECESSARILY

SKYROCKET.

RECENTLY A CHIEF ADVISOR

SAID A WAR ON COAL IS

EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP

FIGHTING IN A BIPARTISAN WAY

TO BLOCK THIS

ADMINISTRATION'S NOT ONLY

WAR ON COAL, BUT A WAR ON

ALL MAJOR ENERGY.

Reporter: THERE IS NO

CONSENSUS IN CONGRESS ON HOW

MUCH MAN CAN REALLY FIGHT

THE THREAT OR EVEN HOW REAL

IT IS.

BUT THE E.P.A. BELIEVES

WHOLEHEARTEDLY IN THAT

THREAT, WHICH KERPIN THINKS

IS BASED ON COMPUTER

PROJECTIONS THAT MAY NOT BE

RIGHT.

THE IDEA WE'RE GOING TO

MAKE PEOPLE SUFFER BECAUSE

OF A COMPUTER MODEL THAT

COULD BE TOTALLY WRONG,

WHICH CLAIMS THERE IS A

BENEFIT 300 YEARS FROM NOW,

IT IS A CRAZY WAY TO DO

BUSINESS.

THE NEXT VERSION COULD SAY

SOMETHING TOTALLY

DIFFERENT.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Pat: IT IS A HORRIBLE

PROSPECT, ISN'T IT, TO HAVE

A GROUP OF ZELLOTS RUNNING

YOUR COUNTRY, RUN BY PEOPLE

WHO HAVE NEVER RUN A

BUSINESS, AND YET THEY SAID

ALL THIS NONSENSE ABOUT

WE'RE GOING TO HELP THE

LITTLE GUY.

WE'LL, THEY'RE PUTTING THE

LITTLE GUY OUT OF WORK,

RUNNING UP THEIR COST OF

LIVING, AND THEY SAY, WELL,

WE'RE FOR THE LITTLE GUY AND

WE'RE AGAINST THESE BIG

GUYS.

WELL, ARE THEY?

IF YOU LOOK AT THE WAY

PRESIDENT OBAMA LIVES, LOOK

AT WHAT HE DOES.

LOOK AT THE COST OF THAT

AIRPLANE THAT HE FLIES

AROUND IN.

THERE IS A WHOLE FLEET OF

THEM.

LOOK AT THE HUGE AUTOMOBILES

HE DRIVES IN.

LOOK AT THE STAFF THAT MANS

THAT PALACE THAT HE LIVES

IN.

YOU TALK ABOUT THE LITTLE

GUY?

HE ISN'T FOUND IN THE OBAMA

HOUSEHOLD.

ONCE AGAIN CONGRESS IS

FACING A STONE WALL IN ITS

INVESTIGATION INTO THE

I.R.S. TEA PARTY SCANDAL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT IS

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PAT, SOME

REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ARE

CONSIDERING HOLDING LOIS

LERNER IN CONTEMPT.

AFTER BEING SWORN IN, HOUSE

OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN

DARRELL ISSA REPEATEDLY

ASKED HER ABOUT HER

INVOLVEMENT IN THE SCANDAL,

BUT LERNER, TIME AND AGAIN,

INVOKED THE FIFTH AMENDMENT,

MUCH LIKE SHE DID LAST MAY,

WHEN SHE APPEARED BEFORE THE

PANEL.

IN FEBRUARY OF 2014,

PRESIDENT OBAMA STATED THAT

THERE WAS NOT A SMIDGEON OF

CORRUPTION IN THE I.R.S.

TARGETING.

MS. LERNER, DO YOU BELIEVE

THERE IS NOT A SMIDGEON OF

CORRUPTION IN THE I.R.S.

TARGETING OF CONSERVATIVES.

ON THE ADVICE OF MY

COUNSEL, I RESPECTFULLY

EXERCISE MY FIFTH AMENDMENT

RIGHT AND DECLINE TO ANSWER

THAT QUESTION.

JAY SECULO AS LERNER'S

REFUSAL TO ANSWER ANY

QUESTIONS SHOWS THAT THE

OBAMA OFFICIALS AREN'T

COOPERATING IN ANY

INVESTIGATION.

Pat: THEY SURE AREN'T

COOPERATING.

CONGRESS CAN SAY, OKAY,

MS. LERNER, WE'LL GRANT YOU

A BLANKET EXEMPTION AND WE

WILL NOT PROSECUTE YOU.

ONCE SHE HAS THAT EXEMPTION,

THE FI FIFTH AMENDMENT DOES

NOT APPLY.

SO THEY WILL SAY, WE WILL

NOT PROSECUTE YOU ON

ANYTHING YOU SAY DURING

THESE HEARINGS.

ONCE SHE HAS THIS BLANKET,

WHY DO YOU NEED A

PROHIBITION AGAINST

INCRIMINATION?

WHAT IS IT THAT IS GOING ON

THAT THEY'RE TRYING TO

HIDE?

I THINK IT LOOKS MORE AND

MORE SUSPICIOUS.

I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

DESERVE AN ANSWER.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF THEY

FIRED HER.

IT IS RIDICULOUS, THE GAMES

THESE PEOPLE ARE PLAYING,

AND THEY'VE OBVIOUSLY DONE

SOMETHING WRONG AND THEY'RE

TRYING TO COVER FOR THE

PRESIDENT.

THIS HARKENS BACK TO THE

SCANDAL THAT WENT ON IN THE

NIXON ADMINISTRATION.

HE WOUND UP BEING IMPEACHED

BY CONGRESS AND HAVING TO

RESIGN.

THEY WERE THREATENING TO

IMPEACH HIM.

THEY DIDN'T DO IT.

BUT HE DID RESIGN.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE OBAMA IS

GETTING AWAY WITH IT.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, TURNING

OVERSEAS, THE PARLIAMENT OF

CRIMEA VOTED UNANIMOUSLY

TODAY TO LEAVE UKRAINE AND

JOIN RUSSIA.

THE CRIMEAN GOVERNMENT ALSO

ANNOUNCED IT WILL HOLD A

REFERENDUM ON MARCH 16th

TO PUT A VOTE TO THE PUBLIC

ON WHETHER TO JOIN RUSSIA.

SOME PEOPLE IN CRIMEA

BELIEVE THEY SHOULD REMAIN

RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE.

I THINK WE HAVE TO STAY

WITH UKRAINE, NOT TO GO TO

RUSSIA.

Reporter: CRIMEA'S MOVE

COMES AS DIPLOMATS ARE

LOOKING FOR A WAY TO END THE

CRISIS IN UKRAINE.

HERE IN WASHINGTON, CONGRESS

IS CONSIDERING STIFF

SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA FOR

SENDING TROOPS INTO CRIMEA.

THE ISRAELI NAVY INTERCEPTED

A WEAPON SHIPMENT WEDNESDAY

ON ITS WAY TO TERRORIST

GROUPS, INCLUDING LONG-RANGE

ROCKETS.

THE WEAPONS CAME FROM IRAN.

AND BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS

IT IS YET MORE EVIDENCE THAT

IRAN IS STILL A MAJOR

THREAT.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY

FROM JERUSALEM.

Reporter: ISRAELI

DEFENSE OFFICIALS SAID THEY

TRACKED THE SHIPMENT FOR

MONTHS.

OVER THE LAST MONTHS, THE

ISRAELI INTELLIGENCE HAS

CONTINUED TO GATHER

EXTENSIVELY IN ORDER TO

INTERCEPT THIS MISSION THAT

IRAN WAS TRYING TO CARRY

OUT.

Reporter: THE SHIPMENT

INCLUDED DOZENS OF M302

MISSILES, WITH A RANGE OF

BETWEEN 60 AND 120 MILES.

THOUGH STRATEGIC WEAPONS

WOULD HAVE PUT MILLIONS OF

ISRAELIS IN CITIES LIKE TEL

AVIV AND JERUSALEM WITHIN

ROCKET RANGE, AND

REPRESENTED A NEW LEVEL OF

DANGER TO ISRAEL'S

HOMEFRONT.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAID THE

WEAPONS SHIPMENT REVEALS THE

TRUE FACE OF IRAN.

IRAN IS SMILING, TALKING

SOFT IN THE INTERNATIONAL

FORUMS, BUT IT CONTINUES,

UNABATEDLY, IT'S AGGRESSIVE

BEHAVIOR IN THE MIDDLE EAST

AND BEYOND.

IT IS SENDING THE DEADLIEST

WEAPONS TO THE MOST CRUEL

TERRORIST GROUPS AT THE

SPOTS LIKE THE ASAD REGIME.

IT HAS NOT CHANGED IOTA, ITS

AGGRESSIVE POLICIES.

I THINK IT IS CRITICALLY

IMPORTANT TO PREVENT THIS

TERRORIST REGIME FROM HAVING

THE WEAPONS OF MASS DEATH.

THIS REGIME MUST NOT BE

ALLOWED TO HAVE NUCLEAR

WEAPONS CAPABILITY.

Reporter: THE SEIZURE

LIFTS THE VEIL ON THE

ONGOING DAILY COVERT WAR

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND ITS

ENEMIES.

WHEN ISRAEL'S CHIEF-OF-STAFF

CALLS THE WAR BETWEEN WARS.

THEY RELEASED A VIDEO

TRACING THE ROUTE OF THE

MISSILES FROM SYRIA TO IRAN,

ON TO A CIVILIAN SHIP AND

THEN INTO THE RED SEA, WHERE

ISRAELI NAVAL FORCES

INTERCEPTED IT HUNDREDS OF

MILES AWAY FROM ISRAEL.

SOME CALL IT THE BIGGEST

ARMED SHIPMENT IN MORE THAN

A DECADE.

THE SHIP IS UNDER TOW, AND

EXPECTED TO ARRIVE INTO THE

ISRAELI PORT OF SHAT OVER

THE WEEKEND.

PAT, THIS WAS A MAJOR

FIND FOR THE ISRAELI

MILITARY.

Pat: IT IS SO

IMPORTANT.

IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN THERE,

YOU KNOW ALONG THE COASTAL

REGION, WHEN YOU GET THESE

WEAPONS, OVER THIS RANGE,

OVER 300 MILES, TO HAMAS,

AND THEY'RE LOCATED IN THE

GAZA STRIP, THAT MEANS TEL

AVIV IS WITHIN RANGE, BUT

ALL OF THE OIL REFINERIES OF

ISRAEL ALONG THE COAST, ALL

THAT INFRASTRUCTURE, IS

WITHIN RANGE OF THESE DEADLY

MISSILES.

NOW, I DON'T QUITE

UNDERSTAND HOW THEY STARTED

IN SYRIA, WENT TO IRAN, AND

THEN TOOK THAT SARKUATUS

ROUTE INTO THE RED SEA, BUT

THAT'S THE WAY THEY WENT.

AND THE FINGERS ARE BEING

POINTED AT IRAN.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, SOONER

OR LATER ISRAEL IS GOING TO

HAVE TO TAKE ACTION.

IT CANNOT SIT IDLY BY AND

ALLOW ITSELF TO BE DESTROYED

BY A COUNTRY THAT HAS SAID

ITS ANNOUNCED GOAL IS THE

DESTRUCTION OF THE JEWISH

PEOPLE AND THE ANNIHILATION

OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

IT IS TIME THE STATE

DEPARTMENT GIVES ISRAEL THE

FREEDOM TO DO WHAT IT NEEDS

TO DO.

THEY HAVE TO DEFEND

THEMSELVES.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU KNOWS HIS

JOB IS TO DEFEND HIS PEOPLE,

NOT BE NICE TO BARACK

OBAMA.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, HERE AT

HOME, FAR MORE PEOPLE MAY BE

DYING FROM ALZHEIMER'S

DISEASE THAN PREVIOUSLY

REPORTED.

NEARLY 80,000 PEOPLE DIED

FROM ALZHEIMER'S IN 2010,

BUT THAT NUMBER SHOULD

REALLY BE CLOSER TO HALF A

MILLION, ACCORDING TO A

STUDY FROM RUSH UNIVERSITY

MEDICAL CENTER IN CHICAGO.

THAT WOULD MAKE ALZHEIMER'S

THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF

DEATH IN THE U.S.

NOT FAR BEHIND HEART

DISEASE, WHICH IS NUMBER

ONE, WITH NEARLY 600,000

DEATHS, AND CANCER WITH

575,000.

PAT?

Pat: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

YOU KNOW, ALZHEIMER'S IS AN

AWFUL THING.

Terry: IT REALLY IS.

Pat: HAVE YOU EVER HAD

A RELATIVE OR ANYBODY HAVE

ALZHEIMER'S?

Terry: BEGINNING

STAGES, A LITTLE BIT SOME.

BUT MORE DEMENTIA, WHICH IS

A LITTLE DIFFERENT.

Pat: I NEVER HAVE.

WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO LIVE LONG

LIVES, BUT TO MY KNOWLEDGE

WE DON'T HAVE THAT.

SO IT MAY BE GENETIC IN

PART.

THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT ARE

JUST LIKE DEAD.

AND NOW WHAT THIS SAYS IS,

ONCE THERE IS AN ONSET

DIAGNOSED AS ALZHEIMER'S,

THEY HAVE UP TO FIVE YEARS

AND THEY'RE DEAD.

BECAUSE THE SAME PROCESSES

THAT SLOW DOWN THE THINKING

ALSO SLOW DOWN THE CRITICAL

FUNCTIONS IN THE BODY AND

THEY DIE.

Terry: IT IS SO HARD TO

WATCH THAT HAPPEN TO A LOVED

ONE.

Pat: MANY OLD PEOPLE

STOP EATING, AND THEY SAY IT

IS MALNUTRITION, BUT IT IS

NOT MALNUTRITION, BUT IT IS

THE ONSET OF SOME KIND OF

SENILE DEMENTIA.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE

DON'T SPEND THAT MUCH MONEY

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT

THE CAUSE OF THIS IS.

THEY THOUGHT MAYBE WE CAN

FIND AMALOG PLAGUES, BUT THE

EACH TIME THEY THINK THEY

HAVE AN ANSWER, THEY COME UP

SHORT.

BUT IT IS A LIVING HELL.

THE PEOPLE ARE DEAD.

THE ONES THAT YOU LOVE SO

MUCH AREN'T THERE ANYMORE.

THEY DON'T KNOW WHO YOU

ARE.

THEY DON'T KNOW WHO THEY

ARE.

THEY DON'T RECOGNIZE

ANYTHING.

Terry: AND IT IS SCARY

TO THEM.

THEY THINK THEY SEE THINGS,

AND THEY DON'T RECOGNIZE

THEIR SURROUNDING.

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS.

THINK HOW IT BREAKS THE

HEART OF SOMEBODY WHO LOVES

THEM, AND THERE IS NOTHING

THEY CAN DO.

IT IS JUST A TERRIBLE

THING.

IT IS TIME THAT SOCIETY

STARTS SPENDING SOME MONEY.

WE WASTE MONEY ON SO MANY

THINGS.

AND IF THERE WAS EVERY

ANYTHING WE COULD SPEND

RESEARCH DOLLARS ON, IT IS

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT

CAUSES SENILE DEMENTIA, WHAT

CAUSES ALZHEIMER'S.

AND WE'VE GOT A WHOLE LOT OF

BABY-BOOMERS WHO ARE GOING

TO BE MOVING PAST 65, INTO

THEIR RETIREMENT AGE, AND

WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THE

NUMBERS OF PEOPLE DYING FROM

THIS DEAD SCURGE IS GOING TO

GET A LOT HIGHER THAN

500,000.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, IN OTHER

HEALTH NEWS, PEOPLE ARE

EATING TOO MUCH SUGAR AND

NEED TO CUT BACK.

THAT'S THE WORD FROM THE

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION.

THEY ARE RECOMMENDING YOUR

DAILY SUGAR INTAKE SHOULD BE

JUST 5% OF YOUR TOTAL

CALORIES, AND THAT IS HALF

OF WHAT THEY PREVIOUSLY

MENTIONED.

AND IT INCLUDES SUGARS IN

FOODS.

THEY SAY CUTTING BACK ON

SUGAR WOULD CUT BACK

OBESITY, DIABETES, HEART

PROBLEMS, AND MORE.

Pat: I'M GLAD THE

F.D.A. IS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM AND BEGINNING TO GET

THE WORD.

WE'VE BEEN PUTTING OUT THE

WORD FOR YEARS, ABOUT THE

DANGERS OF SUGAR.

AND THEY'VE GOT SOMETHING

THAT THEY CALL METABOLIC

SYNDROME.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

WELL, IT MEANS YOUR CELLS

ARE ALL SCREWED UP.

AND YOU HAVE INFLAMMATION.

AND INFLAMMATION IS THE

CAUSE OF DISEASE.

AND WHERE DO YOU GET

INFLAMMATION?

IT IS FROM SUGAR.

IT IS FROM WHITE BREAD,

WHITE RICE, PRO SESSED

PROCESSED PASTA, AND ALL

KINDS OF SUGAR.

AND THE HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN

SYRUP IS PUT INTO ALMOST

EVERYTHING.

IT IS PUT INTO BABY FOOD,

AND CERTAINLY IT IS IN THE

DRINKS.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE AMOUNT

OFç SUGAR YOU FIND IN ONE

12-OUNCE CAN OF COKE

PEPSI, IT IS ALARMING.

IF PEOPLE KNOCK OFF TWO OR

THREE OF THOSE A DAY, THEY

ARE KILLING THEMSELVES.

SO WE HAVE A RASH OF TYPE 2

DIABETES.

THOSE WHO HAVE TYPE 1, IT

GETS EXACERBATED.

IT IS A VERY, VERY SERIOUS

THING.

WE'RE TELLING YOU THINGS,

FOLKS, THAT ARE REALLY

SIGNIFICANT, AND IT IS A

WORRY.

SO YOU CUT BACK.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU HOW YOU

CUT BACK.

YOU'VE GOT TO READ THE

LABELS.

YOU CAN'T GO INTO STORES AND

SAY, I WANT SUGAR POPS.

I WANT HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS

OR WHATEVER THOSE THINGS

ARE.

I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THAT.

Terry: I THINK PEOPLE

ARE DOING THEIR HOMEWORK A

LITTLE BIT MORE AS MORE AND

MORE OF THIS INFORMATION

COMES OUT.

IT SEEMS TO HAVE TAKEN YEARS

TO REALLY NAIL WHAT SUGAR IS

IN.

IT COMES IN ALL HEADINGS, IF

YOU WILL.

Pat: IT IS IN ALL WHITE

PROCESSED FOODS BECAUSE IT

TURNS INTO SUGAR.

YOU READ THE LABELS, AND ITS

THERE.

BUT, HEY, THERE ARE ONLY TWO

OR THREE OF THEM.

OATMEAL DOESN'T HAVE SUGAR,

AND OAT BRAN DOESN'T HAVE

SUGAR.

I THINK ALL BRAN DOESN'T TR

SUGAR.

HAVE SUGAR.

AND THEN YOU HAVE BROWN RICE

AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

BUT YOU'VE GOT FRESH, LEAFY

VEGETABLES, AND YOU'VE GOT

NATURAL FRUIT.

Terry: FOOD THE WAY GOD

MADE IT.

Pat: AMEN.

GO OUT AND PLANT AN APPLE

TREE AND EAT THERE OF.

Terry: COMING UP, 85%

OF PRISONERS HAVE THIS IN

COMMON.

CAN YOU GUESS WHAT IT IS?

WE'LL TELL YOU LATER, AND

SHOW YOU WHO IS WORKING TO

CHANGE THOSE FIGURES.

THAT'S ALL NEXT.

*

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

A LITTLE CLARIFICATION ABOUT

OUR PREVIOUS STORY.

THE F.D.A. IS ASKING FOR NEW

LABELLING GUIDELINES, TO PUT

IN LARGER TYPE THE AMOUNT OF

SUGAR AND VARIOUS THINGS IN

FOOD, SO THERE WILL BE NO

QUESTION ABOUT IT.

THE REPORT WE SAID WAS BY

THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION AS OPPOSED TO

THE F.D.A.

WELL, AMERICA IS FACING A

CRISIS, THE DEMISE OF WHAT

HAS BEEN KNOWN AS THE

TRADITIONAL FAMILY.

FATHERS HAVING CHILDREN AND

SKIPPING OUT, LEAVING

MOTHERS TO RAISE THEIR

CHILDREN ALONE.

BUT AS EPHRAIM GRAHAM

REPORTS, SOME ARE WORKING TO

TURN THAT SITUATION AROUND.

WATCH.

Reporter: THE NATION'S

CRIME BLOTTERS ARE PACKED

WITH EXAMPLES.

IN BALTIMORE, POLICE ARREST

TWO 18-YEAR-OLDS FOR MURDER

AND ROBBERY.

IN CHICAGO, OFFICERS LOCK UP

AN 18-YEAR-OLD AND

20-YEAR-OLD FOR SHOOTING AND

KILLING A 15-YEAR-OLD GIRL.

AND IN ALBANY, SEVEN PEOPLE,

MOSTLY TEENAGERS, ARRESTED

IN THE STABBING DEATH OF A

21-YEAR-OLD.

THAT'S JUST THREE CASES.

11 YOUNG SUSPECTS, AND

CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY

TIM ANDERSON SAYS MOST OF

LIKELY TO SHARE ONE PAINFUL

REALITYMENT.

YO REALITY.

YOU CAN SEE THE PATTERN

STARTING AT THE VERY, VERY

BEGINNING STAGES IN THESE

MEN'S LIVES.

YOU SEE IT IN EVERY ONE OF

THE REPORTS OF THESE PEOPLE

I DEAL WITH, NO FATHER, NO

FATHER, NO FATHER.

Reporter: SOME STUDIES

SUGGEST 85% OF YOUNG PEOPLE

IN PRISON COME FROM

FATHERLESS HOMES, AND THOSE

HOMES ARE ON THE RISE.

THERE ARE MORE THAN

12 MILLION SINGLE-PARENT

FAMILIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY,

WITH MORE THAN 80% OF THEM

HEADED BY SINGLE MOTHERS.

YOU CAN'T BLAME A SINGLE

MOM.

SHE HAS THREE KIDS, WORKING

FOUR JOBS TO KEEP HER HOUSE

AFLOAT.

YOU CAN'T BLAME HER.

YOU'VE GOT TO JUST TRY TO

HELP.

Reporter: ANDERSON IS

HELPING.

HE SPENDS MOST OF HIS

WEEKENDS WITH CHAD BARNETT,

WHO HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR WHO'S

DAD IS --

OUT OF THE PICTURE.

I'VE NEVER KNOWN HIM.

WHEN I CAME INTO THE

PICTURE, I WAS HIS SECOND

MENTOR AND WAS REALLY THE

ONLY MALE IN HIS LIFE.

NOTHING IS AS HARD AS

GETTING THROUGH PUBERTY.

ONCE YOU'RE THROUGH THAT,

EVERYTHING ELSE SEEMS

LITTLE.

HE HAS DEFINITELY HELPED ME

THROUGH A LOT.

Reporter: IN FIVE

YEARS, THE PAIR HAS GROWN

CLOSER THAN BROTHERS.

CHAD EVEN WORKS IN TIM'S LAW

OFFICE AFTER SCHOOL.

TIM COULD HAVE SAID HE

DIDN'T HAVE THE TIME, BUT HE

MADE THE TIME.

IT IS ABOUT HOW BADLY YOU

WANT TO HELP SOMEONE.

IT IS DOABLE, AND IT IS

THE WAY WE'RE GOING O CHANGE

TO CHANGE THE ENTIRE FACE OF

THIS NATION.

Reporter: SUSAN TAYLOR

IS THE EDITOR OF "ESSENCE

MAGAZINE."

AFTER 37 YEARS, SHE LEFT

THAT PLATFORM TO START

AT, "NATIONAL CARES

MENTORING."

ITS MISSION?

INSPIRE PEOPLE TO TAKE THE

TIME TO MENTOR A CHILD.

80% OF BLACK FOURTH

GRADERS ARE READING BELOW

GRADE LEVEL.

56% ARE FUNCTIONALLY

ILLITERATE.

AND FAILING SCHOOLS ARE THE

PIPELINE TO PRISON.

SO MENTORS STEPPING INTO

THAT SPACE CREATE, OH, MY

GOSH -- MENTORING IS JUST

TRANSFORMATIVE.

Reporter: "NATIONAL

CARES" IS ON THE GROUND IN

MORE THAN 50 CITIES ACROSS

THE COUNTRY AND GROWING.

WE CAUGHT UP WITH A TEAM IN

BALTIMORE.

PART OF WHAT WE HAVE TO

FIGURE OUT IS HOW DO WE

ADJUST TO BROKENNESS.

Reporter: TAKING ITS

MESSAGE SPECIFICALLY TO

AFRICAN-AMERICAN MEN IN

CHURCH.

THIS IS WHAT WE GO TO

CHURCH FOR.

THE MINISTER IS SPEAKING TO

THE CONGREGANTS FOR 20

MINUTES, SOME FOR AN HOUR,

DEPENDING ON WHAT CHURCH

YOU'RE IN.

SPEAKING LIFE AND HOPE AND

POSSIBILITIES RIGHT TO OUR

HEARTS.

THAT'S WHAT MENTORING IS.

IT'S INSPIRING.

IT'S PUSHING.

IT'S CONNECTING THEM TO THE

RESOURCES THEY NEED, OUR

YOUNG.

I REMEMBER BEING AT

CHURCH AND RUNNING AROUND

THE YARD.

Reporter: JONATHAN

REYNOLDS IS A CHURCH

MENTORING SUCCESS STORY.

RAISED BY A SINGLE MOTHER,

THE CHURCH BECAME HIS SECOND

HOME.

I HAD A LOT OF GREAT MALE

FIGURES THAT GOD PLANTED IN

MY LIFE.

I WAS ABLE TO LOOK UP TO

SOME GODFATHERS AND SOME

UNCLES COLLECTIVELY.

* I'VE NEVER FALLEN THIS LOW

BEFORE *

Reporter: THAT VOICE

MAY SOUND FA FAMILIAR.

REYNOLDS RECENTLY RELEASED

HIS FIRST C.D., "LIFE'S

MUSIC," AND IT IS CLIMBING

THE GOSPEL CHARTS.

I REMEMBER MY COUSIN

SAYING, WHERE IS YOUR DAD?

AND I WAS, LIKE, I DON'T

KNOW.

I DON'T HAVE ONE.

I DON'T FEEL THAT VOID OR

EMPTINESS.

AND I LOOK BACK AND REALIZE

IT IS NOBODY BUT GOD BEING

MY FATHER.

Reporter: PAUL REYNOLDS

FOLLOWS THE WORLD SINGING

SONGS HE HAS WRITTEN.

HE STILL COMES HOME TO MOM,

HIS PASTOR, AND HIS LITTLE

CHICAGO CHURCH, TO SERVE AS

A MENTOR HIMSELF.

IT IS REALLY FOR THE SALT

OF THE EARTH, FIRST OF ALL

NOT TO LOSE ITS SALTINESS.

WE HAVE TO PRAY.

WE HAVE TO, YOU KNOW, GIVE

AS MUCH OF A GOOD INFLUENCE

TO THESE KIDS AS WE CAN.

* I'M TIRED OF WAITING ON

CYCLES TO END *

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS, CHICAGO.

* SO I'LL LEAN ON THE

SHOULDER THAT I CAN

DEPEND *

Pat: ISN'T IT AMAZING?

GOD MADE THE WORLD THE WAY

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE, WITH

A FATHER AND A MOTHER AND

CHILDREN.

THE CHILDREN TO BE BROUGHT

UP IN THE NURTURE AND

ADMONITION OF THE LORD.

THE FATHER AS THE PROXY, IF

YOU WILL, FOR GOD HIMSELF.

TEACHING THE CHILDREN, BEING

A RESPECTED FIGURE, AND

LOVING THE CHILDREN, AND

LOVING HIS WIFE.

AND THE WIFE BEING A PARTNER

IN LIFE WITH THE HUSBAND.

IT'S SO SIMPLE.

BUT WHEN WE VIOLATE THAT

WITH ALL OF THE RADICAL

TEACHING WE HAVE, AND THEN

THE GOVERNMENT BEGINS TO

MOVE IN AND TELL FAMILIES

WHAT TO DO AND WHATNOT TO

DO, AND THEY MADE PROGRAMS

THAT TEAR PEOPLE APART.

BACK IN THE EARLY '30s,

THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN

COMMUNITY WASN'T ALL THAT

SPLIT UP.

THEY HAD FATHERS AND MOTHERS

AND INTACT FAMILIES, BUT

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY,

WITH WORLD WAR II AND ALL

KINDS OF GOVERNMENT

PROGRAMS, THE GOVERNMENT WAS

TAKING THE ROLE THAT FATHERS

WERE SUPPOSED TO TAKE.

Terry: COMING UP, THE

ALL-STAR OUTFIELDER WHO

STRUCK OUT.

THE DAY I WALKED OUT OF

BASEBALL, THE DOCTORS HANDED

ME A BOTTLE OF PAINKILLERS

AND SAID YOU NEED TO BE ON

THESE THE REST OF YOUR

LIFE.

I NEVER DID DRUGS IN MY

LIFE.

Terry: GLEN WILSON

SQUARES OFF AGAINST HIS

GREATEST ADVERSARY, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

GOD BLESS YOU.

PHILADELPHIA SPORTS FANS MAY

BE FAMOUS FOR BOOING SANTA

CLAUS, BUT THEY CHEER FOR

GLEN WILSON.

THE PHILLIES' OUTFIELDER IT

WAS NICKNAMED GLENBO BECAUSE

HE HAD A MACHINE GUN FOR A

RIGHT ARM.

AND WHILE GLEN LOVED THE

ROAR OF THE FANS, HE ALSO

LOVED SOMETHING ELSE,

PRESCRIPTION PAINKILLERS.

Reporter: MAJOR LEAGUE

BEEN'S GLEN WILSON HAD A

FLARE FOR THE DRAMATIC, AND

THE FANS LOVED HIM FOR IT.

Announcer: FROM THE

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES, GLEN

WILSON!

I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE

TIME, THE ONLY REASON I

PLAYED MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

IS I JUST WANTED ATTENTION.

Reporter: HE IS BEST

KNOWN FOR HIS REMARKABLE

PLAYS FROM RIGHT FIELD.

I FELT THAT I WOULD

ALWAYS BE ONE OF THE BEST IN

THE WORLD.

Reporter: AT TIMES, HE

WAS ALSO CALLED UPON TO

PITCH.

HAVING THAT ARM AND BEING

ABLE TO THROW THE WAY I WAS

THROWING WAS SO MUCH FUN, SO

MUCH EXCITEMENT, THAT I

COULD FEEL THE FANS,

ESPECIALLY IN PHILADELPHIA,

THEIR EXCITEMENT OF SEEING

ME THROW.

IT BECAME SUCH A GAME FOR ME

INSIDE THE GAME.

Reporter: GLEN'S WIFE,

KIM, REMEMBERS LIFE IN THE

BIG LEAGUES DIFFERENTLY.

CHALLENGING, VERY

CHALLENGING.

HE WAS SO PASSIONATE ABOUT

BASEBALL, AND I KNEW IT WAS

GOING TO BE JUST A GREAT

JOURNEY.

BUT IT IS LONELINESS,

EMPTINESS.

THEY'RE GONE ALL OF THE

TIME.

AND WE HAVE THREE BOYS, BUT

TWO OF THEM I RAISED WHILE

HE WAS STILL PLAYING.

Reporter: THERE WAS

SOMETHING ELSE THAT BOTHERED

KIM, GLEN O'S PROFESSED

CHRISTIANITY WAS ONE OF

CONVENIENCE.

I ACCEPTED CHRIST AT AGE

16.

I USED CHRIST TO MY

ADVANTAGE.

I THOUGHT YOU ACCEPT JESUS

CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR.

GO AND DO WHAT YOU WANT AND

COME BACK AND ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS.

Reporter: GLEN LIVED

THAT WAY FOR YEARS.

THEN IN 1993, WHEN GLEN

SUFFERED A BACK INJURY DUE

TO YEARS OF WEAR AND TEAR,

HE KNEW IT WAS TIME TO

RETIRE.

THE DAY I WALKED OUT OF

BASEBALL, DOCTORS HANDED ME

A BOTTLE OF PAINKILLERS AND

SAID, YOU NEED TO BE ON

THESE THE REST OF YOUR

LIFE.

I KNEW SOMETHING ABOUT

THEM.

I NEVER DID DRUGS IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: WITH NO

UNDERSTANDING OF THE DANGERS

OF PAINKILLERS, GLEN STARTED

TAKING VICODIN DAILY.

GRADUALLY HE BECAME

ADDICTED.

HIS BEHAVIOR WAS ERRATIC,

AND AT TIMES HE WAS

IRRATIONAL.

IT GOTç TO WHERE I DIDN'T

EVEN WANT TO GO OUT INTOç THE

PUBLIC.

AND THE ADDICTION STARTED TO

MAKE ME REALIZE THAT I

PROBABLY DON'T NEED TO BE IN

PUBLIC.

Reporter: BY THE END OF

15 YEARS, GLEN WAS TAKING

UPWARDS OF 12 VICODIN A

DAY.

THEN ONE DAY WHILE HE AND

KIM WATCHED A NEWS STORY ON

PAINKILLERS, THEY REALIZED

GLEN WAS ADDICTED.

I GOT PETRIFIED.

I GOT MAD, I GOT ANGRY.

I WENT TO THE DOCTOR THE

NEXT DAY AND I CHEWED HIS

BUTT OUT.

I SAID, I'M NOT A DRUG

ADDICT.

AND IF I GO TO GET OFF OF

THIS, HERE IS WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN TO ME.

AND I ASKED HIM ONE QUESTION

AFTER I VOICED MY

FRUSTRATION, I SAID, HAVE

YOU EVER HAD ANYBODY JUST

QUIT?

AND HE SAID YEAH.

Reporter: GLEN KNEW HE

WOULD NEED HELP TO OVERCOME

THE ADDICTION, SO HE WENT

HOME AND CRIED OUT TO GOD.

THIS TIME GLEN MEANT IT.

I SAID, GOD, I DON'T KNOW

HOW TO GET OFF OF THESE

PILLS.

AND I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING

BUT BASEBALL.

I NEED SOME HELP HERE.

SO I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU ME,

AND YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT.

AND LO AND BEHOLD, I DID NOT

KNOW WHAT I WAS ASKING FOR

BECAUSE IT BECAME A JOURNEY

AND A RIDE THAT I'M STILL

RIDING TODAY.

Reporter: THAT DAY GLEN

SURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST AND FOUND THE

STRENGTH TO END HIS

ADDICTION.

MAN, IT'S REALLY SIMPLE.

SEEK YEE FIRST THE KINGDOM,

AND ALL THINGS SHALL BE

ADDED UNTO YOU.

THAT'S WHAT I LIVED BY.

SEEK YEE FIRST THE

KINGDOM -- WHAT DOES THAT

MEAN?

SEEK YEE FIRST THE KINGDOM.

WELL, IT MEANS WHEN YOU GET

UP IN THE MORNING, START

LOOKING FOR GOD BECAUSE I

GUARANTEE YOU HE'S GOING TO

SHOW UP.

Reporter: GLEN NO

LONGER BATTLES ADDICTION.

KIM SAYS HER PRAYERS HAVE

BEEN ANSWERED.

AMAZING.

HUMBLING.

AND HE LOVES HIS FAMILY.

HE LOVES HIS CHILDREN.

HE IS KIND.

YOU KNOW, HIS JOURNEY HAS

JUST BEEN ABOVE AND BEYOND.

SHE HAS BEEN A VERY

PATIENT WOMAN.

BECAUSE WE'RE ON OUR 33rd

YEAR OF MARRIAGE, WITH THREE

WONDERFUL SONS, A WONDERFUL

DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, AND NOW

WE'RE GRANDPARENTS TO THE

MOST GORGEOUS LITTLE GIRL

I'VE EVER SEEN.

Reporter: IT'S BEEN

YEARS SINCE GLEN HAS BEEN IN

THE SPOTLIGHT, IMPRESSING

THE BASEBALL WORLD WITH HIS

TREMENDOUS RIGHT ARM.

HE IS OKAY WITH THAT BECAUSE

HE NO LONGER NEEDS THE

ATTENTION.

HE IS COMFORTABLE WITH WHO

HE IS IN CHRIST.

WHEN YOU ACCEPT JESUS

CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR,

CHRIST COMES TO LIVE INSIDE

OF YOU.

YOU'RE A NEW CREATION.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE

EXCEPT EVERYTHING?

IF YOU DON'T TRY GOD OVER

THAT ADDICTION.

Pat: I WAS READING

TODAY IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH,

AND IT SAYS, "ARISE, SHINE,

THE GLORY OF GOD HAS RISEN

UPON YOU."

AND HE SAYS FOR THOSE WHO

LOVE HIM, "MY WORD SHALL NOT

DEPART OF YOUR MOUTH AND

SHALL LINGER FOR YOUR

CHILDREN AND YOUR

GRANDCHILDREN AND ON DOWN

THE LINE."

HE WILL SET US FREE.

GLEN WAS SET FREE FROM VIC

DIN AN VIKE VICATON.

GOD SAYS, I'M GOING TO PUT

WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH, PUT

THOUGHTS IN YOUR MIND, I'M

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR

BODY AND YOUR MIND AND

SPIRIT.

GIVE THAT STUFF TO ME, AND

I'LL REMAKE IT AND GIVE IT

BACK TO YOU LIKE I WANT IT

TO BE.

AND YOU'LL BE HAPPY AND I'LL

BE HAPPY.

SO WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO

DRIVE A CAR?

IT'S TO DO IT ACCORDING TO

THE OWNER'S MANUAL THAT THE

MANUFACTURER HAS WRITTEN OUT

CAREFULLY.

HERE IS WHERE YOU DRIVE IT.

HERE IS WHAT YOU DO WITH THE

OIL.

HERE IS HOW MUCH PRESSURE

YOU PUT IN THE TIRES.

IT TELLS YOU ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

IF YOU DO THAT, THE CAR WILL

OPERATE PRETTY WELL.

THEY'LL GO 200, 300, 400,000

MILES IF YOU TREAT THEM

RIGHT.

THE SAME THING WITH YOU.

GOD WANTS TO TELL YOU HOW TO

DO IT HIS WAY.

IF YOU DO, YOUR FAMILY WILL

WORK OUT.

YOUR GRANDCHILDREN WOULD

WORK OUT.

YOUR MONEY WILL WORK OUT.

EVERYTHING WILL BE LIKE ITS

SUPPOSED TO BE.

DO YOU WANT THAT?

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

PRAY.

BOW YOUR HEAD.

DO IT.

JESUS -- SAY WHAT I SAY AND

MEAN IT FROM YOUR HEART.

JESUS, I TURN IT OVER TO

YOU.

YOU KNOW WHAT HAS HOLD OF

ME.

AND I WANT THAT TO BE YOU.

I WANT YOU TO TAKE HOLD OF

ME.

AND SO I GIVE ME TO YOU.

RIGHT NOW.

AND, LORD, I ASK YOU TO TAKE

CARE OF MY BODY, MY MIND, MY

SOUL, MY SPIRIT,

EVERYTHING.

I TURN IT ALL OVER TO YOU.

AND I RECEIVE FROM YOU YOUR

SALVATION.

THANK YOU, IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING.

I'VE GOT A LITTLE BOOKLET

HERE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO DO

NEXT.

BECAUSE GOD IS WITH YOU FROM

NOW ON.

AND AS GLEN SAID, IT'S A

GOOD WORD, WHEN YOU GET UP

IN THE MORNING, YOU THINK

ABOUT GOD AND CALL UP TO THE

LORD AND THINK ABOUT HIM.

THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A

HIGH TOWER.

THE RIGHTEOUS RUN TO IT AND

ARE SAVED.

THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A

HIGH TOWER.

CALL RIGHT NOW.

SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT.

1-800-759-0700.

IF YOU NEED FURTHER PRAYER,

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

THERE IS NO MONEY ATTACHED

TO THIS.

IT IS ALL FREE.

HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, AN

ALL-STAR EDITION OF "BRING

IT ON."

ROGERS SAYS, "WHEN I WAS

YOUNGER AND DUMBER, I GOT A

TATTOO OF A MARIJUANA LEAF

ON MY FOREARM.

I WANT TO GET IT REMOVED,

BUT A FRIEND SAYS I SHOULD

KEEP IT AND USE IT AS A

WITNESSING TOOL.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

PAT IS GOING TTHINK?"

PAT IS GOING TO ANSWER THAT

QUESTION AND MORE WHEN WE

COME BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE

SPEAKING OUT FOR PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS.

TWO REPUBLICANS GAVE ASH

WEDNESDAY SPEECHES

CONDEMNING WIDESPREAD

ATTACKS AGAINST CHRISTIANS

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

BRADLEY BURNS SAID THE U.S.

SHOULD CONDITION AID TO

OTHER COUNTRIES, LIKE EGYPT

AND IRAQ, UNDER TREATMENT OF

RELIGIOUS AUTHORITIES.

WELL, TWO MORE ABORTION

CLINICS IN TEXAS ARE

CLOSING.

BOTH FAILED TO COMPLY WITH A

NEW ANTI-ABORTION LAW THAT

PASSED LAST SUMMER.

THE NEW LAW REQUIRES DOCTORS

PERFORMING ABORTIONS TO HAVE

ADMITTING PRIVILEGES AT A

NEARBY HOSPITAL.

THE NUMBER OF ABORTION

CLINICS IN TEXAS HAS DROPPED

BY MORE THAN HALF SINCE THE

STATE BEGAN PASSING NEW

RESTRICTIONS ON ABORTION IN

2011.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

çç

Pat: I WANT TO

ENCOURAGE YOU, THOSE

PREVIEWS ARE TRIRVEG.

YO TERRIFIC.

YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME,

AND YOU GET TO LEARN ABOUT

THE GRADUATE PROGRAMS.

THESE ARE GRADUATE STUDENTS

WHO WILL BE IN THE UPPER

LEVEL.

YOU HAVE A BACCALAUREATE

DEGREE AND THEN YOU GO FROM

THERE.

THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS

MARCH 10th.

SPACE AND RESTRICTED.

SO HERE IS THE NUMBER.

1-757-352-4393.

OR YOU CAN VISIT THE

WEBSITE, WWW.REGENT.EDU.

ANAND LUX VERA IS THE

MASSIVE ONLINE COURSE, AND

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE

SIGNING UP.

AGAIN, YOU CAN LOG ON TO

LUXVERAREGENT.EDU.

AND RIGHT NOW THE COURSES

ARE FREE, AND THEY'RE VERY,

VERY EXCITING.

THE ONE ABOUT JESUS -- IN MY

OPINION -- I SHOULDN'T BE

PREJUDICE, BUT I AM.

HAVE YOU SEEN IT?

Terry: I HAVEN'T SEEN

IT.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THE

COURSE.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE

WONDERFUL.

AND WE SHOULD MENTION SPRING

HERE AS WELL, FOR THAT

SPRING WEEKEND.

OH, MY GOODNESS, THE

DAFFODILS WILL BE OUT.

YOU NEED TO BE HERE.

Pat: WE PLANTED, I

DON'T KNOW, 50,000 DAFFODILS

OR SOMETHING.

THEY SHOULD BE COMING UP IF

ITHIS COLD WEATHER WILL

EVER STOP.

SOMEWHER STOP.

WE HAVE SOME QUESTIONS?

Terry: ROGER SAYS,

"WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND

DUMBER, I HAD A TATTOO LEAF

OF MARIJUANA.

I THOUGHT ABOUT GETTING IT

COVERED UP, BUT SOMEBODY

SAYS I SHOULDN'T COVER IT UP

AND USE IT AS A WITNESSING

TOOL.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: WHAT KIND OF A

WITNESSING TOOL?

FOR EVERY HUNDREDS THAT SEE

IT, THERE WILL BE ONE YOU'LL

BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT IT.

GET RID OF IT.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: JEN SAYS, "I'VE

HEARD ABOUT PEOPLE

EXPERIENCING THINGS THAT

JESUS EXPERIENCED ON THE WAY

WITH THE CROSS, BLEEDING IN

THE HANDS.

IS THIS MADE UP?

ARE THEY FROM GOD OR

DEMONIC?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

WE'VE HEARD ABOUT SOME GIRL

WHO IS PRAYING AND HAS

BLEEDING IN HER HANDS -- I

DON'T KNOW.

THEY'RE VERY, VERY RARE.

I CAN'T SAY BECAUSE I DON'T

KNOW.

I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYBODY HAVE

THAT.

BUT THERE IS NO REASON THAT

SOMEBODY CAN'T HAVE SUCH A

RELIGIOUS ECSTASY.

SOMETHING LIKE THAT COULD

HAPPEN IN OUR LIKE.

BUT IT COULD ALSO COME FROM

ANOTHER SOURCE.

I CANNOT SAY BECAUSE I DON'T

KNOW.

Terry: THIS NEXT ONE IS

FROM NORMA, PAT, WHO SAYS,

"I'VE HEARD OF PEOPLE WHO

SKIP CHURCH SERVICE EVERY

ONCE IN A WHILE BECAUSE

THEY'RE TOO TIRED OR THEIR

SCHEDULE DOESN'T ALIGN WITH

THE SERVICE TIME.

IS THAT A PROBLEM?

DO WE HAVE TO ATTEND CHURCH

EVERY WEEK?"

Pat: WHAT IS THIS HAVE

TO?

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HOW

GOD WORKS.

THERE ISN'T A SET OF RULES.

YOU CAN WORSHIP GOD IN YOUR

HOME.

THE BIBLE SAYS DON'T FORSAKE

THE ASSEMBLING OF YOURSELVES

TOGETHER.

BUT IT DOESN'T SAY IT HAS TO

BE ON SUNDAY MORNING IN THE

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH.

Terry: PHOEBE SAYS,

"WHAT HAPPENS TO THE BABIES

WHO DIE IN THE WOMB?

DO THEY GET TO GROW UP?

WHAT ABOUT ABORTED

CHILDREN?"

Pat: ALL OF THEM, IF

THEY HAVE A LIFE, THEY WILL

GROW UP.

THEIR LIFE WILL ACCELERATE

TO WHATEVER JESUS WAS.

I THINK THAT WAS THE PERFECT

AGE, WHEN HE WAS LIVING ON

THE EARTH.

AGAIN, THEY HAVE SPIRITUAL

BODIES.

AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'LL

BE LIKE BECAUSE PAUL TALKED

ABOUT A SEED OF WHEAT

FALLING ON THE GROUND, AND

UP COMES THIS BEAUTIFUL HEAD

OF WHEAT.

WE DON'T KNOW YET WHAT WE'RE

GOING TO LOOK LIKE.

I THINK IN MY OPINION,

LITTLE BABIES ARE GOING TO

ACCELERATE AND THEY WILL BE

IN HEAVEN.

Terry: GABRIELLA SAYS,

"I HEARD THE STORY OF

SOMEONE WHO WAS THANKING GOD

FOR HER DISEASE BECAUSE IT'S

IN THE BIBLE.

WHAT DID SHE MEAN?"

Pat: PAUL SAID, WHEN

I'M WEAK THEN I'M STRONG.

I THANK GOD FOR PERSECUTIONS

AND THE THINGS THAT HAVE

HAPPENED TO ME BECAUSE THEN

I GET CLOSER TO JESUS.

SO I DO THINK THAT HE SAID I

WILL FILL UP IN MY BODY WHAT

IS LACKING IN THE SUFFERING

OF CHRIST.

THAT'S WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAID.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND ALL OF

THAT.

SO I THINK IF WE DO HAVE

PERSECUTION AND WE DO HAVE

TROUBLES, WE CAN THANK GOD

FOR THEM.

WE THANK GOD FOR THE GOOD

STUFF; WE THANK GOD FOR THE

BAD STUFF.

I BELIEVE THAT'S THE

ATTITUDE OF THE CHRISTIAN.

I PRAISE YOU GOD, AND I

THANK YOU FOR WHATEVER IS

HAPPENING.

BUT DON'T ASK FOR DISEASE.

I DON'T THINK GOD PUT

DISEASE ON PEOPLE.

Terry: I THINK WHAT WE

THANK HIM FOR IS WHAT HE'S

GOING TO DO THROUGH IT.

Pat: EXACTLY.

YOU WILL DRAW ME CLOSER TO

YOU, AND FOR THAT I THANK

GOD.

BUT WE DO NOT ASK FOR

DISEASE.

Terry: THIS IS

CHARLOTTE WHO SAYS, "IN 2

THESSALONIANS, IT SAYS THAT

GOD WILL SEND A DISSOLUTION

TO BELIEVERS WHO DIDN'T

BELIEVER HIM BEFORE.

DOES THAT MEAN YOU CAN'T BE

SAVED?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE

144,000?"

Pat: THE 144,000 JEFF

,000 J,000 -- I DON'T KNOW

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

DURING THE TRIBULATION.

HE SAID HE'LL SEND A

DISSOLUTION.

ONCE SATAN HAS SENT A STRONG

DISLUTION TO PEOPLE, THEY'RE

GOING TO BE ABLE TO

BREAKTHROUGH IT.

NOW IS THE SAY OF SALVATION,

AND NOW IS THE TIME TO COME

TO THE LORD.

I WOULDN'T SPEND TIME

SPECULATING ON WHAT MIGHT

HAPPEN 100 YEARS DOWN THE

ROAD IN SOME TRIBULATION.

I WOULD THINK HOW CAN I COME

TO THE LORD AND BE USEFUL IN

HIS KINGDOM TO LEAD PEOPLE

TO JESUS NOW.

IT IS THE NO "NOW" THAT IS

IMPORTANT.

KNACK FOR YOUTHANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

Terry: YOU CAN SUBMIT

YOUR QUESTIONS TO US OFF

CBN.COM.

Pat: THEY COME RIGHT

OFF THE INTERNET.

SO YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com WITH YOUR

QUESTIONS.

WE LOVE TO HAVE THEM.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

WOMAN SUFFERING WITH SEVERE

ARTHRITIS IS SUPER NATURALLY

HEALED IN AN INSTANT.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS,ç SO STAY

WITHç US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: REESE WORKS AS A

CARETAKER FOR THE ELDERLY,

BUT HER JOB BECAME MORE

DIFFICULT FOUR YEARS AGO

WHEN SHE DEVELOPED SEVERE

ARTHRITIS IN HER SHOULDERS.

A COUPLE OF TIMES THE PAIN

WAS SO INTENSE, SHE HAD TO

BE TAKEN TO THE EMERGENCY

ROOM.

TAKE A LOOK.

I BEGAN EXPERIENCING PAIN

IN MY SHOULDER.

THE PAIN WOULD TRAVEL FROM

MY SHOULDER DOWN INTO MY

RIGHT ARM.

IT GOT SO INTENSE AT TIMES

THAT I COULD NOT USE MY

RIGHT ARM.

AND ESPECIALLY LIFTING AND

REACHING ABOVE MY HEAD.

I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

SEVERE CASE OF ARTHRITIS.

THEY GAVE ME PAIN PILLS, BUT

I DIDN'T WANT TO DEPEND ON

THOSE PAIN PILLS BECAUSE I

WAS THINKING ABOUT THE SIDE

EFFECTS.

THE ULTIMATE ANSWER WAS

GOD.

I WANTED GOD TO DO THE

WORK.

AND I KNOW IT WAS GOING TO

BE PERFECTLY DONE.

I JUST ENJOY WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

AND, AS A MATTER OF FACT,

I'VE BEEN WATCHING IT FOR

MANY YEARS.

I'VE SEEN MANY PEOPLE BEING

HEALED, DELIVERED, SET

FREE.

THAT PARTICULAR NIGHT I WAS

REALLY IN SEVERE PAIN.

AND SO I TURNED ON MY TV SET

AND "THE 700 CLUB" WAS ON.

PAT ROBERTSON GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

Pat: THE ARTHRITIS, GO

AWAY.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WITH

ARTHRITIS.

RIGHT AS I SPEAK, AT THIS

MOMENT, START MOVING THOSE

ARTHRITIC JOINTS IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

I SAID, WOW, THAT'S ME.

I LIFTED UP BOTH OF MY

HANDS, AND I SAID, LORD, I

THANK YOU FOR THIS MIRACLE.

THANK YOU FOR THIS HEALING

THIS MORNING.

NO MORE PAIN AT ALL.

I HAVE NOT HAD ANOTHER PAIN

FROM THAT DAY THAT PAT

ROBERTSON GAVE THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, UP TO THIS DAY.

NO MORE LIMI LIMITATION OR

ANYTHING.

I CAN DO ANYTHING THAT I

WANT TO DO WITH THIS RIGHT

ARM.

HIS WORDS THAT HE WAS

WOUNDED FOR OUR

TRANSGRESSIONS, AND WOUNDED

FOR OUR ANTIQUITIES.

BY HIS WORD, WE ARE HEALED.

WE BELIEVE IN GOD'S HOLY

WORD.

BELIEVE GOD, GIVE HIM A TRY,

AND TRUST HIM.

Terry: UNBELIEVER.

UNBELIEVABLE.

IN AN INSTANT SHE WAS

HEALED.

Pat: ISN'T SHE SWEET?

SHE IS A DEAR MOTHER -- IF

SHE HASN'T GOT KIDS, SHE

OUGHT TO.

Terry: WE'VE GOT GREAT

ANSWER TO PRAY TO ENCOURAGE

YOUR FAITH BEFORE WE PRAY

FOR YOU TODAY AS WELL.

FRANCIS IS FROM MISSOURI.

SHE DEVELOPED SEVERE NECK

PAIN.

THE PAIN WAS SO BAD AT TIMES

FOR HER, SHE WAS UNABLE TO

MOVE HER NECK.

AND COLD WEATHER MADE IT

EVEN WORSE.

PAIN MEDICATION ONLY GAVE

HER TEMPORARY RELIEF.

ONE DAY WHILE SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB," SHE

PLACED HER HAND ON HER

NECK.

AS SHE DID THAT, PAT, YOU

HAD A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

"A NECK PAIN HAS JUST BEEN

HEALED."

AND SHE SAID THE PAIN LEFT

IMMEDIATELY, AND SHE HASN'T

HAD ONE PAIN SINCE THEN.

Pat: YOU KNOW, I DON'T

REALLY KNOW HOW THIS WORKS,

I REALLY DON'T.

BUT I KNOW THAT GOD IS

THERE.

HIS POWER IS THERE.

AND HE IS WAITING FOR US TO

TAP INTO THAT WORD.

TO SPEAK THE WORD.

WHEN WE SPEAK THE WORD, IT

ENERGIZES HIS POWER AND

THINGS BEGIN TO HAPPEN.

THIRTHIS IS DONNA, WHO

LIVES IN MISSOURI.

SHE TORE THE CARTILAGE

BETWEEN THE RIBS AND A

MUSCLE IN HER CHEST.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND TERRY, YOU

SAID, YOU HAVE INJURED RIBS

AND IT IS HARD TO BREATHE.

DONNA SAYS THE PAIN

INSTANTLY VANISHED, AND SHE

TWISTED HER BODY FROM SIDE

TO SIDE, AND SHE HAS BEEN

PAIN-FREE EVER SINCE.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS.

THIS IS THE TIME GOD WANTS

TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOU.

FATHER, WE KNOW YOU'RE ALL

POWERFUL.

WE STAND IN AWE OF YOUR

POWER.

WE'VE ONLY BEGUN TO TOUCH

THE TIP OF THE GREATNESS OF

GOD.

FAITH AS BIG AS A MUSTARD

SEED AND WE CAN MOVE

MOUNTAINS.

LORD, INCREASE OUR FAITH

THAT WE MIGHT BELIEVE GOD.

OH, MY GOODNESS, SOMEBODY

HAS CANCER IN THE THROAT.

YOU'VE HAD HOARSENESS, AND

YOU HAVE BEEN SCARED TO GO

TO THE DOCTOR.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR THROAT

RIGHT NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THAT

CANCER IS LEAVING YOU.

AMEN.

Terry: THERE ARE MANY

OF YOU RIGHT NOW WHO HAVE

BEEN IN SEVERE PAIN, PEOPLE

WITH CHRONIC MIGRAINES,

PEOPLE WITH ROTATOR CUFF

CONDITIONS, PEOPLE WITH

SEVERE ARTHRITIS, GOD IS

HEALING YOUR CONDITIONS

RIGHT NOW.

Pat: IN JESUS' NAME,

RECEIVE HIS POWER.

AMEN.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM MATTHEW:

"COME UNTO ME, ALL YOU WHO

LABOR AND WHO ARE HEAVY

LADEN, TAKE MY YOLK FROM

ME."
