Will Clower, Ph.D discusses the new science of chocolate and its many benefits to health and weight loss. Plus, at 18 Nadia turned her back on her strict adoptive parents and began a dark journey away from God. Read Transcript


THE DIET YOU'VE BEEN

WAITING FOR.

HOW YOU CAN EAT THE TREAT

AND LOSE THE WEIGHT.

AND THEN...

I FELT LIKE A CELEBRITY.

A LADY OF THE NIGHT.

IT WAS LIKE A PARTY EVERY

NIGHT FOR ME.

WHO WAS AFRAID TO TURN

OUT THE LIGHTS.

I WAS SO FEARFUL, I

COULDN'T EVEN SLEEP IN MY

OWN BED.

I WAS SO SCARED.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WAS THERE A MYSTERIOUS FORCE

THAT TOOK CONTROL OF THE

AIRPLANE OF MALAYSIAN AIR

AND TOOK IT WAY OFF-COURSE

INTO THE STRAITS OF

MALACCA.

COULD SOMEBODY IN SPACE, A

SATELLITE OR SOMETHING OF

THAT NATURE, TAKE CONTROL OF

AN AIRPLANE, THE CONTROLS,

AND DIRECT IT IN A WAY IT

WASN'T INTENDED TO GO.

IT IS SOMETHING OUT OF

SCIENCE FICTION, BUT IT IS

POSSIBLE.

AND THE PRESIDENT'S APPROVAL

RATINGS HAS PLUNGED TO 41%.

WHATEVER HE IS DOING, PEOPLE

DON'T LIKE IT.

AND IT MAY BE A SIGN OF

THINGS TO COME.

THE REPUBLICANS, THEY WANT A

MAJOR VICTORY IN A CLOSELY

WATCHED AND VERY EXPENSIVE

SPECIAL ELECTION IN

FLORIDA.

THE KEY ISSUE IN THAT CASE,

GUESS WHAT?

OBAMACARE.

THAT ELECTION COMES WITH

MORE BAD NEWS FOR THE

DEMOCRATS.

A NEW REPORT SHOWS THAT THE

NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

SIGNING UP FOR OBAMACARE IS

FAR LESS THAN THE WHITE

HOUSE PREDICTED.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: POLITICAL

EXPERTS SAY THE FLORIDA

SPECIAL ELECTION WAS REALLY

A REFERENDUM ON OBAMACARE.

DAVID JOLLY MADE REPEALING

THE LAW A CENTER PIECE OF

HIS FLORIDA DISTRICT 13

CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN.

WHEN ALL OF THE VOTES WERE

COUNTED ON TUESDAY NIGHT,

THE REPUBLICAN WAS DECLARED

THE WINNER.

YOUR CONCERNS ARE MY

CONCERNS.

I PLEDGE EVERY DAY TO WORK

WITH YOU AND FOR YOU.

Reporter: PERHAPS

WORKING TO MAKE DRASTIC

CHANGES TO THE AFFORDABLE

CARE ACT, OR TO FIGHT TO

SCRAP IT AND BEGIN AGAIN.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE MAJORITY

OF LIKELY AMERICAN VOTERS

OPPOSE THE LAW.

56% VIEW IT UNFAVORABLY,

ACCORDING TO A RECENT POLL.

AND THERE ARE FEWER SIGNUPS

THAN EXPECTED.

ONLY 4.2 MILLION BY THE END

OF FEBRUARY.

THAT FALLS NEARLY

1.5 MILLION SHORT OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S GOAL.

IT IS UNLIKELY THAT A

PROJECTED SIX MILLION WILL

SIGN UP BOY THE MARCH 31st

DEADLINE.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST

SHORTFALLS IS WITH YOUNG

ADULTS.

ONLY 25% OF ENROLLEES ARE

BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18 AND

34.

THAT FOGG FIGURE NEEDS TO

BE 40% TO UNDERSET THE COST

FOR OLDER AND UNHEALTHY

ADULTS.

KATHLEEN SEBELIUS URGED

YOUNG AMERICANS TO SIGN UP.

IF YOUR 27 YEARS OLD AND

MAKE $25,000 A YEAR, YOU

COULD FIND A PLAN THAT WOULD

COST YOU $105 A MONTH.

MY GUESS IS YOU CAN'T BUY A

PAIR OF RUNNING SHOES FOR

$105 A MONTH.

Reporter: AND PRESIDENT

OBAMA WAS ALSO ON THE STUMP

FOR THE AFFORDABLE CARE

ACT.

THIS PERSON QUESTIONED THE

PRESIDENT ON IT.

WHAT DO YOU COME HERE TO

PLUG?

President Obama: FIRST

OF ALL, I THINK IT IS HERE

TO SAY I WOULDN'T BE HERE

WITH YOU TODAY IF I DIDN'T

HAVE SOMETHING TO PLUG.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT?

OH, YEAH, THAT'S THE

THING THAT DOESN'T WORK.

President Obama:

healthcare.gov WORKS

GREAT NOW.

Reporter: IS OBAMACARE

THE ISSUE THAT WILL HELP

REPUBLICANS RETAKE THE

SENATE.

TEA PARTY FAVORITE TED

CRUZ.

IF IT IS ONE THING THAT

UNIFIES POLITICIANS, THE TOP

PRIORITY IS PRESERVING THEIR

OWN HIDE.

IF THE DEMOCRATS REALIZE

THEY STAND WITH OBAMACARE

AND LOSE, OR THEY LISTEN TO

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND HAVE

A CHANCE OF STAYING IN

OFFICE, THAT'S THE ONE

SCENARIO THAT COULD DO IT IN

2015.

IF NOT, WE'LL DO IT IN

2017.

Pat: I DON'T THINK WE

OUGHT TO READ TOO MUCH IN

THAT FLORIDA ELECTION.

THAT PARTICULAR DISTRICT HAS

THE MAJORITY OF REGISTERED

REPUBLICANS, AND A WHOLE LOT

OF INDEPENDENTS.

WHEN THE ABSENTEE BALLOTS

CAME IN, THEY FAVORED THE

REPUBLICANS.

AND HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY

WERE SPENT.

I THINK IT IS VERY UNWISE TO

READ TOO MUCH INTO ONE

ELECTION.

AND IT IS NOT CLEAR WHETHER

OR NOT IT WAS ON OBAMACARE

BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT IN THAT

PARTICULAR RACE WAS NOT

AROUND TO VOTE FOR IT ONE

WAY OR THE OTHER.

BUT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF

SENATORS WHO ARE DEMOCRATS

WHO DID VOTE FOR IT, AND

THEY ARE VERY VULNERABLE.

WELL, JUST AS OBAMACARE HAS

BEEN GETTING PLENTY OF BAD

NEWS, NOW THERE IS MORE BAD

NEWS FOR THE FORMER I.R.S.

OFFICIAL INVOLVED IN THE TEA

PARTY SCANDAL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, FORMER

I.R.S. OFFICIAL LOIS LEARNER

CREATED,

QUOTE,"UNPRECEDENTED

ROADBLOCKS FOR TEA PARTY

COMPANIES TRYING TO GET

NON-PARTY STATUS."

THE AMERICAN FOR LAW AND

JUSTICE REPRESENTS 41

GROUPS.

JAY SECULO SAYS THE REPORT

UNDERSCORES WHAT HAS BEEN

APPARENT FOR MONTHS.

LOLOIS LERNER'S

MALICIOUSNESS IS VERY

CLEAR.

SHE CREATED BARRIERS TO TEA

PARTY ORGANIZATIONS, AND

HELPED THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION PUT NEW

BURDENS ON EXISTING GROUPS.

LERNER REFUSED TO TESTIFY

FOR THE SECOND TIME.

THE U.S. POWER GRID MAY BE

VULNERABLE TO WIDESPREAD

SABOTAGE.

THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON

REPORTS THAT CONCERN HAS

BEEN RAISED BY THE NEW

JERSEY REGIONAL OPERATIONS

INTELLIGENCE CENTER AFTER

RECENT INCIDENTS INCLUDING

SABOTAGE OR ITS POTENTIAL AT

POWER PLANTS AND TOWERS

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

THE BEACON REPORTS IS THAT

THE THE CONCERN IS MANY OF

THE INCIDENTS COULD BE A

SIGN OF PREPARATION FOR A

LARGER, COORDINATED ATTACK

ON THE POWER GRID.

YOU CAN FIND THOSE REPORTS

BY GOING TO CBN.COM.

PAT, THIS COMES ON THE HEELS

OF YOUR INTERVIEW WITH KEVIN

FREEMAN YESTERDAY.

Pat: EXACTLY.

AND WE'VE GOT MORE COMING.

I WANTED AN INDEPTH REPORT,

AND HOPEFULLY BY NEXT

MONDAY, OR SOMETIME NEXT

WEEK, WE'LL HAVE A FULL

REPORT ON THAT.

THE POWER GRID IS

EXTRAORDINARILY VULNERABLE.

SOMEBODY CAN TAKE A .22

RIFLE, OR A .33 RIFLE AND

START SHOOTING OUT AREAS IN

THE POWER AND KNOCK OUT

TRANSFORMERS BECAUSE THERE

IS NO BARRIER.

THERE IS JUST A CHAIN-LINKED

FENCE.

AND THEY HAVE DONE THAT.

WHETHER IT IS JUST

PRANGSTERS OR DEDICATED

PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO TAKE

THE GRID OUT.

BUT WE'RE SO DEPENDENT ON

POWER.

WE ARE SO UTTERLY DEPENDENT

ON POWER.

IF WE DON'T HAVE

ELECTRICITY, WE'RE IN

TROUBLE.

WOUR WATER RUNS OFF

ELECTRICITY.

YOUR SEWAGE RUNS OFF OF

ELECTRICITY.

YOUR REFRIGERATION IS ON

ELECTRICITY.

YOUR LIGHTS, YOUR

TELEVISION, YOUR

TELEPHONES -- ALL OF THESE

DEVICES.

WE HAVE TO HAVE

ELECTRICITY.

OKAY, WE'VE GOT SOMETHING

COMING UP, AND I JUST ASKED

FOR THIS.

WENDY, YOU'RE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING ABOUT CHOCOLATE.

Wendy: THIS MAY BE MY

FAVORITE INTERVIEW OF ALL

TIMES, PAT.

Pat: I HAVE IN MY HAND

MY SECRET TO LOW BLOOD

PRESSURE AND HEALTH.

THIS IS A DARK CHOCOLATE BAR

WITH -- WHAT DOES THAT SAY,

88% COCOA.

Wendy: 88%, THAT'S A

LOT OF COCOA THERE.

Pat: IT IS NOT VERY

TASTY.

BUT I BREAK OFF THREE OF

THESE LITTLE THINGS EVERY

NIGHT.

Wendy: DID YOU SAY IT

HELPS KEEP YOUR BLOOD

PRESSURE LOW?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

IT IS FABULOUS.

Wendy: I KNOW FOR A

FACT IT MAKES ME HAPPY.

AND SCIENCE PROVES THAT

CHOCOLATE DOES REDUCE

ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION.

SO, YOU KNOW --

Pat: I'M NOT A WOMAN,

AND I DO NOT GET HAPPY ON

EATING CHOCOLATE.

WOMEN DO.

Wendy: WE REALLY DO.

YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT

CHOCOLATE, ALMOST AS GOOD

AS,.

Pat AS --

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

BUT THIS IS DARK CHOCOLATE.

Wendy: 70%,

APPARENTLY.

WE ARE GOING TO FIND OUT HOW

MUCH.

Pat: 70% PROBABLY

TASTES BETTER.

THIS IS 88%.

I GET IT AT THE VITAMIN

SHOP.

I GET A WHOLE BOX OF THESE

THINGS.

THREE LITTLE SQUARES.

THEY'RE VERY GOOD FOR YOU.

WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT LATER.

OKAY, JOHN?

Reporter: UKRAINE'S NEW

PRIME MINISTER IS IN

WASHINGTON TODAY FOR

MEETINGS WITH PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS.

HE IS SEEKING AMERICA'S

SUPPORT IN THE STANDOFF

AGAINST RUSSIA OVER CONTROL

OF CRIMEA.

CONGRESS VOTED OVERWHELMING

ON TUESDAY TO CONDEMN

RUSSIA'S ACTS.

IT CALLS FOR A BOYCOTT OF

THE UPCOMING G-8 SUMMIT IN

SOCHI.

SOME WANT TO GO FURTHER, BY

INCREASING NATURAL GAS

SHIPMENT TO EUROPE, CUTTING

RUSSIA'S CONTROL.

THE LEVERAGE IT SEEMS

THAT WE HAVE IS THAT 52% OF

THE WHOLE BUDGET FOR THE

RUSSIAN MILITARY AND THE

RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT COMES

FROM THEIR CONTROL OF GAS

AND OIL.

AND AT THE SAME TIME, YOU

HAVE SIX COUNTRIES IN EUROPE

THAT ARE TOTALLY DEPENDENT

UPON GAS FROM RUSSIA.

Reporter: POLICE ARE

INVESTIGATING 600,000

DOLLARS WORTH OF STOLEN CASH

AND CHECKS FROM A SAFE AT

JOEL OSTEEN'S MEG CHURCH IN

HOUSTON.

MANY OF THE OFFERINGS

INCLUDED CHECKS OR CREDIT

CARD INFORMATION, RAISING

CONCERNS OF IDENTITY THEFT.

THE MONEY WAS STOLEN

SOMETIME BETWEEN SUNDAY AND

MONDAY MORNING.

NO ARRESTS HAVE BEEN MADE SO

FAR.

A NEW THRILLER CALLED

PERSECUTED COMING THIS

SPRING.

WHERE A MEMBER OF CONGRESS

FRAMES A NATIONAL PERSON FOR

MURDER.

DIRECTOR DANIEL LUSCO TOLD

HER THE FRIGHTENING SCENARIO

IS NOT AS FAR-FETCHED AS YOU

MIGHT THINK.

WENDY RECENTLY SAT DOWN TO

TALK ABOUT THE FILM.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO CLAIM

THAT YOUR CRUSADE MAY EVEN

THREATEN THE FREEDOM OF

OTHER PEOPLE.

FREEDOM IS FRAGILE AND

COSTLY AND MUST CONSTANTLY

BE DEFENDED.

Wendy: DANIEL, WHAT

INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE

"PERSECUTED?"

THE HOLY SPIRIT INSPIRED

ME TO WRITE PERSECUTED.

I WOKE UP ONE MORNING AND IT

WAS THERE.

THE GOVERNMENT WAS TRYING TO

TAKE EVERYTHING, INCLUDING

THE VERY SOURCE THAT GAVE

OUR COUNTRY ITS FOUNDATION,

WHICH IS BIBLICAL TRUTH.

Wendy: JAMES REMAR

PLACE EVANGELIST JOHN LUTH

THAR.

LUTHER.

WE MET IN NEW MEXICO.

TELL ME ABOUT JOHN LUTHER.

JOHN LUTHER IS THE HERO

OF OUR STORY.

HE BECOMES A MAJOR

EVANGELIST, AT THE LEVEL OF

BILLY GRAHAM, AT A TIME WHEN

AMERICA BECOMES AN

UNWELCOMELY ENVIRONMENT FOR

THE GOSPEL.

HE IS DISCREDITED.

HE IS TARNISHED.

HE IS TAKEN AWAY FROM HIS

FAMILY AND HIS MINISTRY, AND

EVENTUALLY HAS TO GO ON THE

RUN AS A FUGITIVE TO PROVE

THE TRUTH.

JOHN, WHAT IS YOUR

OPINION OF THE FAITH ACT.

Wendy: GRETCHEN CARLSOP

CARLSON AND I BOTH HAVE

PARTS.

MYSELF AS A LEGAL EXPERT WHO

TALKS ABOUT LUTHER'S

CHECKERED PAST.

AND LEAVING THE SCENE OF

THE ACCIDENT.

YOU PLAYED A VERY

POWERFUL ROLE.

OUR OWN WENDY GRIFFITH FROM

"THE 700 CLUB" IS AN

IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE

MOVIE.

AGAIN, ESTABLISHES THE

CREDIBILITY OF THE CASE

AGAINST JOHN LUTHER.

Wendy: SO BASICALLY YOU

HAVE A FAMOUS EVANGELIST,

JOHN LUTHER, WHO IS FRAMED

FOR MURDER BY A MEMBER OF

CONGRESS BECAUSE HE IS

STANDING IN THE WAY OF A

SWEEPING RELIGIOUS REFORM.

IS THIS REALLY FANTASY, OR

IS THIS SOMETHING YOU COULD

ACTUALLY ENVISION HAPPENING

IN AMERICA?

IT REALLY IS BEGINNING

BECAUSE WE ALLOW OURSELVES

TO BE SILENCED IN THE NAME

OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

Wendy: WHY IS

"PERSECUTED" NOT YOUR

TYPICAL CHRISTIAN FILM.

WE HAVE AN ALL-STAR CAST,

AND I THINK IT IS BECAUSE WE

HAVE AN ALL-STAR STORY,

WHICH IS IN SYNC WITH THE

PULSE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING

IN OUR COUNTRY.

REGARDLESS OF WHAT POLITICAL

VIEW YOU COME FROM.

I WOULD LOVE PEOPLE TO GO TO

Facebook.COM /PERSECUTED

MOVIE.

BECAUSE WE'LL BE SCREENING

THE FILM AND EVERYTHING

LEADING UP TO THE RELEASE.

Reporter: "PERSECUTED"

OPENS IN THEATERS ON MAY

1st.

AND, PAT, THAT WENDY

GRIFFITH KEEPS PROVING SHE

IS SO GIFTED AND TALENTED.

Pat: INCREDIBLE.

SHE IS THE PERSONALITY, A

MOVIE ACTRESS --

Wendy: THIS IS MY FIRST

BIG SCREEN ROLE.

YOU CAN'T BLINK.

GET YOUR POPCORN AND HEAD TO

THE THEATERS MAY 9th.

Pat: IT IS VERY, VERY

BELIEVE.

IT WOULD BE EASY TO FRAME

SOMEBODY.

Wendy: IT IS A

THRILLER.

IT IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL

CHRISTIAN MOVIE.

Pat: YOU DON'T WANT A

TYPICAL CHRISTIAN MOVIE.

Wendy: AND DANIEL LESKO

IS SO MUCH FUN.

MAKING A MOVIE IS TOTALLY

DIFFERENT.

WHEN I WAS THERE ON LOCATION

IN NEW MEXICO, FIRST OF ALL,

THEY HAVE A TRAILER FOR

YOU.

IT IS REALLY COOL.

Pat: IS THERE A STAR ON

THE DOOR?

Wendy: THERE WASN'T A

STAR ON THE DOOR.

IT WAS PRETTY DUSTY.

THE DIRECTOR TALKS YOU

THROUGH HOW TO SAY YOUR

LINES.

AND IT IS REALLY COOL.

IT WAS A VERY COOL

EXPERIENCE.

Pat: NOBODY IS TALKING

TO YOU THROUGH AN EAR

PIECE.

Wendy: NO.

Pat: THAT'S AN EXCITING

MOVIE.

PEOPLE OUGHT TO GO SEE IT.

I THINK IT WILL BE VERY

GOOD.

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY.

MAY 9th.

Pat: WE DON'T WANT TO

BE PARANOID, BUT THE TRUTH

IS IT SO EASY TO SET

SOMEBODY UP IN TODAY'S

WORLD.

Wendy: YEAH.

THIS LEAD CHARACTER --

IMAGINE THE BIGGEST

EVANGELIST IN AMERICA YOU

CAN THINK OF FRAMED FOR

MURDER.

AND HE HAS TO RUN FOR HIS

LIFE.

HE IS TRYING TO STOP

CONGRESS FROM PUSHING

THROUGH THIS ACT THAT IS

GOING TO WATER DOWN THE

GOSPEL.

IT IS AN EXCITING MOVIE.

AND IT WAS A FUN

EXPERIENCE.

Pat: I'M GLAD YOU WERE

ON IT.

AND I THINK, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, JUST TO SEE WENDY

IS WORTH THE PRICE OF

ADMISSION.

BRING YOUR FRIENDS.

BY THE WAY, THERE IS ANOTHER

ONE OUT THERE.

HOW IS THE ONE ABOUT "THE

SON OF GOD" DOING?

Wendy: I HAVEN'T HEARD,

BUT I KNOW IT DID REALLY

WELL IN OPENING WEEKEND.

Pat: I'VE GOT THE VOICE

IN MY EAR, NUMBER FIVE.

Wendy: FANTASTIC.

Pat: I READ AN ARTICLE

WHERE THEY SAY IT IS TIME TO

GET MEL GIBSON BACK IN THE

GOOD GRACES OF HOLLYWOOD.

HIS "PASSION OF THE CHRIST"

GROSSED OVER $600 MILLION.

IT WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY

EFFORT.

MEL IS SO CREATIVE.

SO WE HOPE THAT THOSE

OUTBURSTS THAT CAME ABOUT,

AND HE'S GOT A PROBLEM WITH

ALCOHOL, I GUESS, BUT HE IS

BASICALLY A GOOD GUY.

Wendy: HE IS AN

EXTRAORDINARY TALENT.

Pat: I THOUGHT "BRAVE

HEART" IS THE BEST MOVIE I

HAVE EVER SEEN.

Wendy: I'M WITH YOU.

THAT IS ONE OF MY ALL-TIME

FAVORITES.

Pat: IT WON THE OSCAR

THAT YEAR.

MEL IS A VERY CREATIVE GUY.

HE HAS BEEN SHUNNED BY

HOLLYWOOD, AND SO THEY'RE

TRYING TO BRING HIM BACK.

Wendy: KEEP HIM IN OUR

PRAYERS, FOR SURE.

WELL, TO WIN THE WHITE

HOUSE, YOU HAVE TO WIN THE

VOTES OF THE PEOPLE IN THIS

COMMUNITY.

WE'LL SO YOU WHERE THEY ARE,

AND WHICH WAY THEY'RE

LEANING.

DON'T GO AWAY.

*

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

EARLIER ON THIS PROGRAM, WE

TOLD YOU ABOUT A REPUBLICAN

VICTORY IN THE KEY SWING

STATE OF FLORIDA.

OVER THE YEARS, THE G.O.P.

HAS HAD A LOCK ON CUBAN

VOTERS IN FLORIDA.

BUT NOW THAT COULD CHANGE.

HEATHER CELLS HAS AN INDEPTH

STORY OF WHAT THE CUBANS ARE

THINKING IN FLORIDA.

MORE MORE THAN 800,000

CUBANS LIVE IN SOUTH

FLORIDA.

YOU'LL FIND THEM SIPPING

SMALL CUPS OF STRONG COFFEE

THROUGHOUT THE DAY, AND

HELPING DRIVE THE LOCAL

ECONOMY IN UP-SCALE SHOPPING

AND BUSINESS DISTRICTS, AND

IN WHAT IS KNOWN AS LITTLE

HAVANA, THE OLDER CROWD

FLOCKS TO DOME KNO DOMINO

PARK, RAIN OR SHINE.

NOW THE YOUNGER GENERATION

DOESN'T APPEAR TO SHARE THE

SAME PARTY LOYALTY FOR

POLITICAL CONCERNS.

THE OLDER THE EXILE

COMMUNITY THAT CAME IN '59

AND THE '60s, WAS FOCUSED

ON A SINGLE MISSION, WHICH

WAS GETTING BACK TO CUBA.

Reporter: JOSE'S DAD

IMMIGRATED FROM CUBA.

AND HE ALSO SPEAKS

PROFESSIONALLY AND SAYS

YOUNG CUBANS BORN HERE BRING

A DIFFERENT SET OF VALUES TO

THE TABLE.

WE WANT TO HEAR YOU'VE

GOT A GOOD TAX CODE THAT

HELPS WORKING FAMILIES.

WE WANT TO KNOW YOU'RE DOING

BETTER THINGS FOR

EDUCATION.

Reporter: NEW POLLING

SHOWS A POLITICAL DIVIDE

AMONG CUBAN AMERICANS, WITH

THE YOUNGER LESS CONCERNED

ABOUT CUBAN POLICY, AND MORE

DEDICATED GO DOMESTIC

ISSUES.

CUBAN AMERICANS, WHEN WE

FIRST CAME TO AMERICA, SAID,

LOOK, REPUBLICANS ARE

AGAINST COMMUNISM.

THEY'RE FOR LIBERTY.

THEY'RE FOR FREEDOM.

WE'RE WITH THEM.

NOW THEY LIKE WHAT

REPUBLICANS STAND FOR, BUT

THEY'RE ALSO LOOKING CLOSELY

AT THE INDIVIDUALS AND WHAT

THEY STAND FOR.

Reporter: THAT MAY

EXPLAIN WHY IN 2012 JOE

GARCIA BECAME FLORIDA'S

FIRST CUBAN DEMOCRAT ELECTED

TO CONGRESS.

A NUMBER OF CUBAN VOTED

TURNED OUT FOR PRESIDENT

OBAMA, AND WHY THOSE LIKE

J.C. FEELS MORE LIBERAL THAN

THEIR CUBAN PARENTS.

BOTH CUBAN AMERICANS ARE

CONSERVATIVE, BUT I AM A

MODERATE.

Reporter: POLITICAL

WATCHERS CALL IT A SUBTLE

SHIFT THAT IS WORTH

WATCHING.

PAUL BONICCELI BELIEVES THAT

REPUBLICANS SHOULD BE

CONCERNED.

THE FIRST SHOT FOR THE

G.O.P. IS THEY NEVER HAD TO

WORRY ABOUT THAT.

AND NOW YOU HAVE TO.

AND NOW I'VE GOT TO SPEND

MORE MONEY IN AN AREA THAT

WAS A LOCK.

Reporter: HERE IS THE

POLITICAL EQUATION: CUBANS

ARE KEY TO FLORIDA'S

HISPANIC VOTE.

FLORIDA'S HISPANIC VOTE IS

CRITICAL FOR WINNING THE

STATE, AND THE STATE LEADS

TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

FLORIDA'S 29 ELECTORAL VOTES

MAKE IT A MAJOR BATTLEGROUND

STATE.

IN ADDITION TO THEIR IMPACT

ON VOTING, YOUNGER CUBANS

COULD ULTIMATELY AFFECT U.S.

POLICY TOWARDS CUBA.

I THINK THE YOUNGER

GENERATION LOOKS AT THE

EMBARGO AS SOMETHING THAT

HASN'T FUNCTIONED, AND MAYBE

WE SHOULD RENEGOTIATE.

DON'T REALLY LISTEN

TO THEIR PARENTS AND

GRANDPARENTS.

THEY WANT TO STRIKE OUT ON

THEIR OWN.

THEY WANT TO HAVE A

DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW.

THAT EXPLAINS A LOT OF THE

APATHY TOWARDS THE

ANTI-CASTRO MOVEMENT.

Reporter: PART OF THAT

TURNAROUND COULD SEE SEEN IN

THIS RECENT POLL, SHOWING

THAT 64% WANT NORMAL

RELATIONS BETWEEN CUBA AND

THE UNITED STATES.

MAYBE THAT'S WHY THIS

HANDSHAKE DIDN'T MAKE MORE

WAVES THAN IT WOULD HAVE IN

THE PAST.

FOR NOW, THE CUBAN VOTE

REMAINS ONE IN TRANSITION.

REPRESENTING A NEWFOUND

OPPORTUNITY FOR DEMOCRATS,

AND A NEW CONCERN FOR THE

G.O.P.

REPORTING IN MIAMI, HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I ONCE SUPPORTED A

GROUP THAT WAS CALLED CUBRA

LIBRE DECATI.

AND THE MAN WHO WAS IN

CHARGE OF IT WAS A GOOD

GUY.

HE MARCHED IN THE SIERRA

MADRE WITH FIDEL CASTRO, AND

THEN HAD BEEN PERSECUTED AND

TORTURED, PUT INTO A LITTLE

BOX AND BURIED ALIVE.

IT IS HORRIBLE WHAT THEY DID

TO HIM.

HE GOT OUT, CAME TO THIS

COUNTRY, AND STARTED TRYING

TO HAVE A DEMOCRATIC

MOVEMENT TO OPPOSE CASTRO IN

CUBA.

BUT IT NEVER REALLY CAME TO

VERY MUCH.

I DON'T KNOW RIGHT NOW

WHETHER THE TAME CUBA LIBRE

IS GOING TO EXCITE THE CUBAN

VOTE DOWN IN FLORIDA LIKE IT

USED TO.

IT USED TO BE THEY WANTED

CUBA FREE, AND THEY WANTED

THAT MORE THAN ANYTHING.

NOW IT IS KIND OF LIKE,

OKAY, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO

GIVE ME AND WHAT'S MY

BENEFITS AND ALL OF THE REST

OF IT.

THEY'RE TAKING ON THE

AMERICAN DISEASE, I GUESS IT

IS, OF WANTING SOMETHING

MORE FROM GOVERNMENT.

Wendy: HOW A RAUL

DIFFERENT FROM HIS BROTHER?

Pat: HE IS A MONSTER.

I THINK THEY'RE BOTH

MONSTERS.

AND WHAT THEY'RE DOING TO

PEOPLE IN PRISONS IS JUST

HORRIBLE.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE.

IT IS BEYOND THE PALE OF

HUMAN EXPERIENCE IS WHAT

THEY DO IN THESE PRISONS.

Wendy: CASTRO WAS IN

OFFICE WHEN JOHN F. KENNEDY

WAS IN OFFICE, AND HERE WE

ARE IN 2014, AND THEY'RE

STILL RUNNING IT.

Pat: CASTRO CAME TO NEW

YORK, AND THEY HAILED HIM AS

A GREAT LIBERATED, AND

EVERYBODY THOUGHT HE WAS

JUST TERRIFIC.

AND THEN THEY BEGAN TO

REALIZE HE WAS A PUPPET OF

RUSSIA.

AND THEN HE SET UP ONE OF

THE MOST OPPRESSIVE REGIMES

IN THE WORLD.

I THINK HE IS STILL HOLDING

ON.

I THINK FIDEL IS ABOUT TO GO

TO HIS MAKER, BUT HE HASN'T

DONE IT YET.

AND RAUL IS JUST HOLDING

ON.

BUT IT HAS BEEN TERRIBLY

OPPRESSIVE, AND EXECUTING

THEIR ENEMIES, AND ALL OF

THE REST IT.

IT IS AWFUL.

I HOPE THE YOUNG CUBANS WILL

REALIZE THAT FREEDOM IS

STILL AN IMPORTANT THING,

AND THE FREEDOM OF THEIR

HOMELAND IS IMPORTANT.

THEY WERE BORN IN AMERICA,

AND THEY SPEAK ENGLISH, AND

THEY HAVE LOST A LITTLE

TOUCH WITH THEIR FORMER

COUNTRY.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

UP NEXT, THE NUDE MODEL WHO

WAS CLOTHED ONLY IN

DARKNESS.

I STARTED HAVING THIS

REALLY BLACK SPIRIT OVER

ME.

EVERY NIGHT I CAME HOME AND

I REMEMBER CRYING AND BEING

REALLY SCARED.

I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE LIGHTS

ON, THE TV, AND SOME NOISE.

I WAS THAT SCARED.

Wendy: HEAR WHY SHE IS

NO LONGER AFRAID OF THE

NIGHT, NEXT.

Pat: WELL, YOU'VE HEARD

THE SAYING THAT BLONDES HAVE

MORE FUN, BUT NOT NADIA

CONE.

SHE, YOU SEE, WAS IN THE SEX

TRADE.

SHE WAS A YOUNG STRIPPER,

AND SHE WAS BEING EATEN

ALIVE BY THE ADULT SEX

INDUSTRY.

NADIA FELT TRAPPED AND

SLOWLY SHE WAS ENGULFED BY

DARKNESS.

I'D CALL THESE

PHOTOGRAPHERS, AND THEY

WOULD COME FROM ALL OVER AND

SHOOT TOPLESS AND NAKED

PHOTOS OF ME.

AND THEY SAID, OH, YOU'RE

GOING TO LAND GREAT GIGS.

AND I BELIEVED IT, SO I LET

THEM DO THAT FOR FREE.

Reporter: NADIA CONE

WAS NOW ENTERING THE WORLD

OF NUDE MODELING, VERY

DIFFERENT FROM THE VALUES

SHE GREW UP WITH.

EVERY YOUTH GROUP OR

ANYTHING WITH GOD, I WANTED

TO BE THERE.

I WOULD BE PRAYING IN

SCHOOL.

I WOULD DO ALL OF THAT

STUFF.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS COOL, I'M

GOING TO STAND FOR CHRIST.

I NEVER IMAGINED I WOULD GO

THE OPPOSITE WAY.

Reporter: NADIA FOUND

HERSELF BEGINNING TO RESENT

HER STRICT CHRISTIAN

UPBRINGING, WHEN SHE WASN'T

ALLOWED TO JOIN HER FRIENDS

IN ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE OF

CHURCH EVENTS.

I WANTED TO BE POPULAR.

I THOUGHT, IN AUSTRALIA THEY

HAD BETTER LIVES.

NOBODY EVERY SA EVER SAW

OUR FAMILY OUTSIDE OF THAT.

Reporter: A YOUTH

LEADER TOLD NADIA HE THOUGHT

SHE HAD IMPROPER MOTIVES FOR

ATTENDING A CHURCH RETREAT

AND WOULD NOT ALLOW HER TO

GO.

THAT WAS MY START OF

REBELLION AGAINST GOD.

I THOUGHT THEY DON'T WANT

ME.

I BECAME ANGRY.

I WAS, LIKE, I'M GOING TO DO

WHAT I WANT TO DO AND YOU

CAN'T STOP ME.

SO I EVENTUALLY WENT AWAY

FROM EVERYBODY.

Reporter: WHEN SHE WAS

18 SHE LEFT HOME FOR

MODELING.

DESPERATE FOR MONEY AND

ATTENTION, NADIA FOUND WORK

AS A STRIP CLUB.

IT WAS EVERYTHING SHE

THOUGHT SHE WANTED.

I FELT LIKE A CELEBRITY.

I REMEMBER, LIKE, WALKING

DOWN TO THE POLE, AND WE HAD

LIKE A GIRLS' PARADE, AND WE

WOULD HAVE TO GO ON

DIFFERENT STAGES.

I FELT BEAUTIFUL.

I FELT LIKE I HAD POWER.

I HAD AUTHORITY.

I COULD MANIPULATE GUYS INTO

GIVING ME MONEY OR ANYTHING

I WANT.

I STARTED LEARNING HOW TO

ROLE PLAY AND TRICK PEOPLE

OUT OF MONEY.

I ENJOYED IT.

IT WAS LIKE A PARTY EVERY

NIGHT FOR ME.

Reporter: AFTER A

WHILE, SHE REALIZED THE LIFE

OF A DANCER WASN'T AS

GLAMOROUS AS SHE FIRST

THOUGHT.

I DIDN'T REALIZE THE

CREEPINESS OF THE GUYS UNTIL

MUCH LATER ON.

THE GUYS, ALL THEY WANTED

FROM ME WAS YOUR BODYMENT

BODY.

THEY DIDN'T CARE ABOUT YOU.

THE FALSE IDENTITY, TAKING

DRUGS, DRINKING ALCOHOL,

USING MEN, IT JUST REALLY

MAKES YOU BROKEN AND HARD.

AND IT MAKES YOU ALMOST

ANTI-HUMAN.

I STARTED FEELING VERY

LONELY AND DOWN BECAUSE I

DIDN'T REALLY HAVE ANY

FRIENDS.

AS SOON AS THEY FOUND OUT

YOU WERE A DANCER, THEY

WOULD JUDGE YOU.

AND I WOULD TRY TO PUSH

PEOPLE AWAY FROM ME.

Reporter: NADIA SAYS A

DARKNESS ENVELOPED HER

LIFE.

I ALWAYS FELT FEARFUL.

I COULDN'T EVEN SLEEP IN MY

OWN BED FOR A YEAR BECAUSE I

WAS SO SCARED, BECAUSE I

THOUGHT SOMEBODY MIGHT

FOLLOW ME HOME.

EVERY NIGHT I CAME HOME, AND

I REMEMBER CRYING AND BEING

REALLY SCARED.

I HAD TO HAVE LIGHTS ON, I

HAD TO HAVE TV ON, AND SOME

NOISE.

I WAS THAT SCARED.

AND I REMEMBER SITTING THERE

ON THE COUCH, DRINKING A

WHOLE BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE BY

MYSELF.

I REMEMBER JUST FEELING THE

LONELINESS AND I HIT

BOTTOM.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I FELT SO DARK.

I HAD NO ONE THERE.

I HAD NO FAMILY.

I WAS JUST, LIKE, HOW COULD

I HAVE NOTHING IN MY LIFE.

I CONTEMPLATED ON ENDING MY

LIFE.

YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY LIVE IN

SUCH LONELINESS.

Reporter: NADIA LONGED

FOR THE LOVE AND PEACE SHE

HAD WHEN SHE WAS YOUNGER,

BUT SHE FELT SHE HAD RUN TOO

FAR FROM GOD.

I WAS TOO SCARED TO TALK

TO GOD OR EVEN PRAY TO GET

ME OUT OF THAT DISPAIR.

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I HAD

THAT LOVE AND THAT

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.

SO I MISSED IT.

FOR SO LONG I THREW IT

AWAY.

I JUST WALKED AWAY FROM

GOD.

AND NOW I'M, LIKE, THERE IS

NO WAY GOD CAN TAKE ME BACK

NOW.

Reporter: A NEIGHBOR

INVITED HER TO A WOMEN'S

BIBLE STUDY IN A SUMMER

CHURCH RETREAT.

SHE WENT.

AT THE RETREAT, NADIA FELT

THE LOVE OF GOD.

SOMETHING SHE HAD NOT

EXPERIENCED FOR A LONG

TIME.

AFTER SO MANY PAINFUL

EXPERIENCES AND JUST

LONELINESS, I'LL FINALLY

UNDERSTAND WHAT THE PRODIGAL

SON STORY MEANT.

WHEN I CAME BACK TO GOD AND

JUST FELT THE LOVE THAT HE,

YOU KNOW, POURED OUT.

HE NEVER LEFT.

I LEFT.

AND SO WHEN I STARTED

FEELING THAT LOVE, I DIDN'T

FEEL ANY JUDGMENT UPON MY

LIFE.

AND I JUST GAVE HIM BACK MY

LIFE AND MY HEART.

AND ALL OF THE MESS I MADE.

AND GOD JUST ERASED ALL OF

THAT AND REBUILT MY LIFE.

HE BROKE MY HEART AND MADE

IT HIS.

Reporter: NADIA

RECOMMITTED HER LIFE TO

JESUS AND QUIT HER JOB AS A

DANCER.

TODAY SHE GOES BACK TO THE

NIGHTCLUBS BUT WITH GIFTS OF

LOVE FOR THE WOMEN WHO NEED

TO KNOW THERE IS A GOD WHO

LOVES THEM.

I AM JUST TOUCHED EVERY

TIME HE WOULD CALL ME TO GO

BACK AND SHOW LOVE TO THESE

WOMEN.

THIS IS REAL.

I'M JUST, LIKE, AMAZED AT

WHAT HE HAS DONE.

I'M STILL IN AWE OF THAT.

THAT GOD WOULD JUST USE

PEOPLE LIKE US, PEOPLE LIKE

ME.

Pat: IT SEEMS SO

GLAMOROUS, DOESN'T IT?

THE LIGHTS, THE APPLAUSE,

THE FAST MUSIC, THE FAST

CROWD, GAMBLING, DRINKING

SEX, NO RESTRAINTS, NOTHING

TO STOP YOU.

JUST GO FOR IT.

BUT YOU KNOW SOMETHING,

THERE IS DARKNESS.

AND NADIA ENCOUNTERED THE

DARKNESS.

YOU SEE, THERE IS A DEVIL.

THERE IS A DEVIL.

FOLKS, THE DEVIL IS REAL.

I DON'T WANT TO MAKE TOO

MUCH OF THE DEVIL, BUT HE IS

REAL.

AND HIS DESIRE IS -- THE

BIBLE SAYS HE GOES ABOUT

LIKE A ROARING LION, SEEKING

WHOM HE CAN DEVOUR.

SO IF HE CAN TAKE A WOMAN

AND SEND HER OUT ON A STAGE

WITH NO CLOTHES ON TO TEMPT

MEN AND TO BRING FORTH LUST

FUL THOUGHTS AND DESTROY

PEOPLE IN THE PROCESS, HE'LL

DO IT.

OF COURSE HE WILL.

AND SHE'LL GET PAID A LOT OF

MONEY, AND SUDDENLY LIKE

NADIA, SHE WAKES UP AND SHE

IS IN DARKNESS, TOO.

BECAUSE THE DEVIL WILL USE

PEOPLE AND THEN CAST THEM

OUT AND DESTROY THEM.

BUT IN NADIA'S CASE, SHE

FOUND THE ANSWER.

AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THERE

IS NOTHING THAT YOU HAVE

DONE THAT HAS CENTER YOU

SENT YOU SO FAR AWAY THAT

GOD WON'T RECEIVE YOU BACK.

SO IF YOU'RE LIKE THE

PRODIGAL SON, AND YOU WAKE

UP AND SAY, I NEED TO GO

BACK TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE, I

WANT TO ASK YOU RIGHT NOW TO

PRAY WITH ME.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE THAT

YOU'RE ASHAMED OF?

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE THAT YOU

THINK IS TOO FAR AWAY FROM

GOD?

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

GOD ALMIGHTY SAYS TO YOU, MY

CHILD, I LOVE YOU AND I WILL

FORGIVE YOU.

AND I WILL MAKE YOU PART OF

MY HOME, PART OF MY FAMILY,

PART OF MY HEAVEN.

BUT YOU NEED TO TURN.

YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF THE

PIGSTY.

YOU CAN'T STAY IN THE PIGSTY

IF YOU'RE GOING TO COME INTO

MY HOUSE.

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A NEW

ROBE.

I'M GOING TO PUT SANDALS ON

YOUR FEET.

I'M GOING TO CLEAN YOU UP

AND MAKE YOU PART OF MY

FAMILY.

BUT YOU CAN'T STAY IN THE

PIGSTY AND DO THAT, TOO.

I WANT YOU TO SAY SOMETHING,

I'M HAVING AN AFTERTHOUGHT,

AND I'M GOING THE OTHER

WAY.

I WANT TO PRAY WITH YOU

RIGHT NOW.

RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE, NOW.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY THESE

WORDS.

JESUS, YOU'VE SEEN ME.

YOU KNOW ME.

YOU KNOW HOW I HAVE SHAMED

MYSELF.

YOU KNOW HOW I HAVE GONE

AWAY FROM THINGS THAT I HAVE

LEARNED WHEN I WAS YOUNG.

I'M SORRY, LORD.

AND I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE

ME.

I WANT TO COME HOME.

LORD, I WANT TO COME HOME.

I WANT TO BE PART OF YOUR

FAMILY.

AND SO RIGHT NOW I TAKE YOU

AS MY SAVIOR.

MAKE YOU LORD OF MY LIFE.

AND, FATHER, FROM THIS

MOMENT ON I'M YOURS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE HEARD

MY PRAYER.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

I WANT TO PRAY WITH YOU

RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, MAY THE ANOINTING OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON

PEOPLE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, FILL

THEM.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

I HAVE SOMETHING I WANT TO

GIVE YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT'S A LITTLE BOOK THAT HAS

A C.D. IN IT, AND IT WILL

TELL YOU WHAT TO DO NEXT.

THIS IS THE FIRST STEP.

THERE ARE MANY MORE.

AND THE BLESSING THE GOD,

AND WHAT IT IS TO BE PART OF

THIS FAMILY.

I'LL SEND THIS TO YOU FREE.

BUT IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT YOU TO CALL AND SAY, I

PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

NO FINANCES INVOLVED AT

ALL.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, LOOK,

I PRAYED WITH HIM.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

YOU CALL ANYHOW.

IF YOU WANT TO GET THIS

LITTLE PACKET, GIVE US YOUR

NAME AND WE'LL GET IT TO

YOU.

CALL US.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

COMING UP LATER, PAT HAS THE

ANSWER TO YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

DELSI SAYS, "I SEE CBN

HELPING PEOPLE IN OTHER

PARTS OF THE WORLD, BUT WHAT

ARE YOU DOING FOR PEOPLE

RIGHT HERE AT HOME?"

WE'LL "BRING IT ON" WITH

THAT AND MUCH MORE LATER, ON

TODAY'S SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

A FEDERAL TRIAL HAS STARTED

TO DETERMINE WHETHER A NEW

MEXICO CITY CAN HAVE A 10

COMMANDMENTS MONUMENT.

A SUIT SAYS THAT THE

MONUMENT VIOLATES THE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM BY PUTTING

OUT THE MESSAGE THE CITY

ENDORSES A SPECIFIC

RELIGIOUS BELIEF.

BLOOMFIELD'S POLICY PROVIDES

EQUAL ACCESS TO ANY GROUP

THAT WANTS A MONUMENT AT

CITY HALL THAT IS RELEVANT

TO THE HISTORY OR HERITAGE

OF THE CITY.

LAWMAKERS IN TENNESSEE HAVE

PASSED A BILL THAT WOULD LET

STUDENTS EXPRESS THEIR

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS IN A

SCHOOL ASSIGNMENT, AND IT

WOULD ALSO LET THEM ORGANIZE

PRAYER GROUPS, JUST AS OTHER

STUDENTS ARE PERMITTED TO

ORGANIZE OTHER

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: I WANT TO GIVE A

PLUG TO REGENT UNIVERSITY.

ACCORDING TO THE PRINCETON

REVIEW, WE HAVE THE TOP 10

LAW FACULTY IN THE NATION.

Wendy: WOW!

Pat: WE HAVE NUMBER

TWO, OXFORD UNIVERSITY, IN A

MOOT COURT CHAMPION.

Wendy: WE'VE COMPETED

WITH IVY LEAGUE.

Pat: BEAT THEM.

Wendy: SORRY.

BEAT THEM.

Pat: WE BEAT THEM.

WE'VE HAD 66 INTERNATIONAL,

NATIONAL, AND REGIONAL

COMPETITION WINS WITH THE

LAW SCHOOL.

NOW, WE'VE GOT SOMETHING

CALLED LUX VERA THAT IS

GOING ON, TOO.

IT IS VOTED BY U.S. AND

NEWSWORLD REPORT ONE OF THE

TOP 10 ONLINE BATC BACHELOR

DEGREE PROGRAMS IN THE

UNITED NATIONS.

Wendy: RIGHT HERE.

Pat: IT RECEIVED AN "A"

RATING FROM THE

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM

FROM THE A.C. T.A. AND THE

A AM IT'S QUITE A THING.

Wendy: AND PEOPLE ARE

SO BUSY, ONLINE IS THE WAY

TO GO SOMETIMES.

Pat: IF YOU WANT TO

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT REGENT

UNIVERSITY, YOU CAN LOG ON

TO REGENT.EDU.

AND IN TERMS OF THIS MUTE

THAT IS GOING ON, THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE ARE SIGNING UP FOR

THE CLASS.

IT'S LUXVERA.EDU.

IT'S EXCITING.

Wendy: DELSI SAYS, "I

SEE CBN HELPING PEOPLE IN

OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD,

BUT DO YOU HELP THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE AT TIMES, ALSO.

IT APPEARS YOU ONLY HELP

PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES."

Pat: DELSI, DEAR, WE

HAVE THE HUNGER STRIKE

FORCE.

THE GOAL WAS TO DISTRIBUTE

100 MILLION POUNDS OF FOOD

AND SUPPLIES TO THE POOR IN

AMERICA, IN THE INNER CITIES

AND A APALACIA.

WE WERE MASSIVELY INVOLVED

IN KATRINA.

Wendy: FOR TWO YEARS.

Pat: AND MASSIVELY

INVOLVED IN SANDY HOOK.

TWO YEARS IN NEW ORLEANS.

WE WERE ONE OF THE FIRST TO

COME IN, AND ONE OF LAST TO

LEAVE.

THE SAME THING WITH SANDY.

WE'VE BEEN THERE WITH

HURRICANES, WITH TORNADOES,

WITH ALL KINDS OF THINGS.

Wendy: WE WERE JUST

RECENTLY IN CHARLESTON, WEST

VIRGINIA, WITH THE WATER

CRISIS.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

WERE YOU INVOLVED IN THAT AT

ALL?

Wendy: NO.

MY FAMILY WAS.

Pat: WHEREVER THERE IS

A PROBLEM, WE'RE THERE.

YOU ASKED, ARE WE DOING

ANYTHING IN AMERICA?

LOTS AND LOTS.

AND OVERSEAS, WE'RE INVOLVED

IN ALMOST 200 COUNTRIES.

Wendy: JANET

WRITES, "YEARS AGO WHEN I

WAS PREGNANT WITH MY

DAUGHTER, I WAS KNOCKED TO

THE WALL BY MY EX-HUSBAND.

SHE WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD.

WE PRAYED AND SHE WAS RAISED

FROM THE DEAD.

YEARS PASSED, AND SHE

THRIVED.

I DREAMED WHAT SHE WOULD DO

FOR GOD.

ONE NIGHT FROM COMING HOME

FROM SCHOOL, A DRUNK DRIVER

PLOWED INTO MY DAUGHTER.

I KNOW SHE LOVED THE LORD SO

I KNOW WHERE SHE IS.

I DID FORGIVE HER KILLER AT

THE MURDER TRIAL, BUT I

STILL MISS HER AND HURT FOR

MY DAUGHTER.

WHY WOULD GOD PERFORM A

MIRACLE ONLY TO TAKE HER

AWAY PREMATURELY YEARS

LATER?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

BLESSED IN THE SIGHT OF THE

LORD IS THE DEATH OF HIS

SAINTS.

THERE COMES A TIME WHEN GOD

WANTS HIS SAINTS TO BE WITH

HIM IN HEAVEN.

HE LET'S THEM LIVE ON EARTH

FOR A TIME AND THEN BRINGS

THEM HOME.

FOR A CHRISTIAN, DEATH IS

NOT BAD.

DEATH IS THE OPENING FOR A

WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE THAT

GOD HAS FOR THEM.

WHY DID IT HAPPEN?

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT IT IS APPOINTED ONCE A

MAN DIES, AND AFTER THAT THE

JUDGMENT.

LAZARUS, YOU COULD SAY, WAS

IN A SUSPENDED STATE AND

THEN DIED.

YOU COULD SAY THE SAME THING

FOR YOUR DAUGHTER.

I WON'T GET INTO THE FIVE

POINTS TO THAT BECAUSE IT IS

TOUGH AND I DON'T KNOW IF I

HAVE ALL OF THE ANSWERS.

BUT I DO THINK PRECIOUS IN

THE SIGHT OF THE LORD IS THE

DEATH OF HIS SAINTS.

HE LOVES PEOPLE.

AND FROM GOD WHO LOOKS DOWN

AT EVERYTHING, HE SEES WHAT

CAN HAPPEN TO YOUR

DAUGHTER.

HE CAN SEE HER GETTING

RAPED.

HE CAN SEE HER GOING AWAY

FROM GOD.

HE CAN SEE, LIKE THAT STORY

WE HAD EARLIER, THAT GIRL

WHO WAS A CHRISTIAN AND SHE

WINDS UP AS A STRIPPER.

HE CAN SEE ALL OF THAT.

AND SO SOMETIMES IT IS

BETTER TO TAKE HER.

Wendy: DANA WRITES,

"I'VE BEEN READING ON LINE

THAT YOUR PROGRAM IS A

SCAM.

I DON'T BELIEVE IT IS, BUT

COULD YOU TELL THAT TO THE

NAY-SAYERS."

Pat: YOU KNOW, JOHN THE

BAPTIST SENT PEOPLE TO

JESUS.

AND JESUS SAID, OKAY, LOOK

OUT THERE.

THE BLIND ARE SEEING.

THE DEAF ARE HEARING.

THE LAME ARE WALKING.

AND THE POOR ARE HAVING THE

GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM.

YOU FIND ANY OTHER

ORGANIZATION THAT HAS

DISTRIBUTED OVER

$1.2 BILLION FOR THE POOR.

FIND ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION

THAT HAS LED 600 MILLION TO

700 MILLION PEOPLE TO FAITH

IN JESUS CHRIST.

FIND ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION

THAT HAS A MAJORITY

UNIVERSITY.

FIND ANOTHER ORGANIZATION

THAT HAS ONE OF THE LEADING

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

ORGANIZATIONS, THE AMERICAN

CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE.

YOU FIND ANYBODY WHO DOES

ALL OF THAT, AND IF YOU

CAN'T SEE THAT, YOU MUST BE

BLIND.

THAT'S WHAT YOU TELL

PEOPLE.

WE'VE HAD, BY THE WAY,

95 MILLION PRAYER REQUESTS

OR CALLS IN SINCE WE'VE BEEN

OPERATING.

WE COUNT THEM.

95MILLION.

Wendy: THERE ARE ALWAYS

GOING TO BE PEOPLE THAT

DON'T BELIEVE.

Pat: OF COURSE.

THEY DON'T WANT TO BELIEVE.

THE TRUTH IS PEOPLE DON'T

WANT TO BELIEVE IN GOD.

SO THEY'LL FIND ANY REASON.

THAT'S THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF

EVOLUTION.

THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF THE

SCIENTIFIC METHOD.

THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF

ANYTHING THEY CAN DO TO

PROVE THERE IS NO GOD.

INCLUDING WHOLE PROGRAMS

THAT CLAIM THAT THE WISDOM

WE HAVE CAME FROM ALIENS.

OKAY, SO MUCH FOR THAT.

BUT BELIEVE.

Wendy: I WOULDN'T WANT

TO WORK ANYWHERE ELSE.

IT IS THE REAL DEAL.

YOU CAN COME AND VISIT US

AND SEE FOR YOURSELF.

Pat: YOU WERE IN

SECULAR TELEVISION.

YOU WORKED AS THE HEAD OF

P.R. FOR A GOVERNOR --

Wendy: I'VE BEEN ON

BOTH SIDES, AND THERE IS NO

PLACE LIKE THIS.

Pat: YOU'VE BEEN ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

WHEN YOU GO AROUND THE WORLD

AND YOU SEE THE THINGS THAT

ARE BEING DONE, IT IS SO

EXCITING.

Wendy: IT IS VERY

EXCITING.

OH, MY GOODNESS, WE DON'T

HAVE TIME TO TALK ABOUT IT

RIGHT NOW.

UP NEXT, A DIET PROGRAM YOU

CAN REALLY SINK YOUR TEETH

INTO.

WE'LL INTRODUCE YOU TO THE

CHOCOLATE CHALLENGE, SO

DON'T GO AWAY.

Pat: GET ME MY BAR.

Pat: OKAY, THIS IS

HEALTH FOOD.

88% COCOA.

YOU CAN GET 72%, DARK

CHOCOLATE HEALTH FOOD.

LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE, KEEPS

YOU HEALTHY, MAKES YOU THIN,

AND WENDY IS GOING TO TELL

US HOW IT WORKS.

Wendy: I'VE GOT ALL

KINDS OF CHOCOLATE DELIGHTS

OVER HERE.

IT SOUNDS LIKE WISHFUL

THINKING, BUT A CHOCOLATE A

DAY KEEPS THE POUNDS AWAY.

HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS: IT IS

TOTALLY TRUE, ACCORDING TO

ONE DOCTOR.

EVERYONE LOVES CHOCOLATE,

IT IS OFTEN THOUGHT TO BE

UNHEALTHY.

NEW RESEARCH SHOWS THAT

PEOPLE WHO EAT DARK

CHOCOLATE EVERY DAY WEIGH

LESS THAN THOSE WHO DON'T.

THAT'S WHAT THIS DOCTOR

SAYS.

HEIS NUTRITIONIST AND

SCIENTIST WHO DISPELS THE

MYTH THAT DARK CHOCOLATE IS

JUNK FOOD.

THE DOCTOR REVEALS THE

SIX-STEP PLAN, BASED ON THIS

AMAZING HEALTH FOOD.

HE WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO

TAKE THE CHO CHOCOLATE

CHALLENGE SO YOU CAN FINALLY

HAVE YOUR CHOCOLATE AND EAT

IT, TOO.

Wendy: DR. WILL CLOUER

IS HERE.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: YOU SAID THERE

IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

CHOCOLATE AND CHOCOLATE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

CHOCOLATE IS SOMETHING

THAT IS SOLID, DARK

CHOCOLATE.

IT WAS PUT ON THIS EARTH FOR

US.

IT IS A REAL FOOD.

HOWEVER, THE FAKE STUFF ARE

INVENTIONS.

THE NUGGET, THE CARMEL, AND

THINGS PEOPLE PUT INTO THE

CONFECTIONS ARE ACTUALLY

VERY BAD FOR YOU.

Wendy: WHAT ABOUT MILK

CHOCOLATE VERSES DARK

CHOCOLATE.

DARKER IS BETTER.

DARKER IS BETTER.

DARKER IS BETTER.

Wendy: SO WHAT YOU'RE

SAYING IS DARKER IS BETTER.

IF YOU CUT TO THE CHASE.

Wendy: FANTASTIC.

YOU HAVE DONE A STUDY OR

FOLLOWED A STUDY WHERE

PEOPLE ATE DARK CHOCOLATE

AND SOME WHO DID NOT.

WHAT DID YOU FIND?

IN MY DAY JOB, I PROVIDE

WELLNESS FOR CORPORATIONS

GLOBALLY.

I HAVE THEM IN CORPORATE

CHOCOLATE INTO THEIR DIET.

WHAT WE FIND IS WHEN YOU

HAVE REAL FOOD IN CONTROL,

IT CONTROLS HOW MUCH YOUR

HUNGRY.

YOU CAN EAT ALL YOU WANT,

BUT YOU JUST WANT AN AMOUNT

THAT IS HEALTHY FOR YOU.

IT ALSO HELPS TO CONTROL THE

AMOUNT YOUR HUNGRY FOR

BETWEEN MEALS.

SO YOU'RE NOT CHRONICALLY

SNACKING.

YOU'RE CONTROLLING

CONSUMPTION, AND USING

CHOCOLATE TO DO IT.

Wendy: SPEAKING OF

CONSUMPTION, WE CAN'T SIT

AROUND ALL DAY AND EAT BON

BONS, EVEN IF THEY ARE

CHOCOLATE.

WHAT IS THE PORTION SIZE YOU

RECOMMEND?

WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR

CHOCOLATE, I WANT YOU TO

THINK ABOUT THE RULE OF

THUMB.

AND THE RULE OF THUMB IS THE

SIZE OF YOUR END JOINT,

WHICH IS YOUR THUMB, WHICH

IS APPROXIMATELY THIS BIG.

YOU THINK THAT'S NOT A

BITE.

THAT'S A NANO NIBBLE.

BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY A

PERFECTLY APPROPRIATE BITE.

WHEN YOU HAVE THIS AND YOU

PUT IN I IT IN YOUR MOUTH,

THERE IS A NEURAL REFLEX --

Wendy: I KNEW IT.

IT IS A NEURAL REFLEX THAT

MAKES YOU HAPPY.

IT MAKES YOU HAPPY AND IT

TURNS OFF THE CRAVING FOR

IT.

EVERYBODY KNOWS THERE IS AN

ON SWITCH TO EATING

CHOCOLATE, BUT THEY'RE NOT

SURE THERE IS AN OFF

SWITCH.

IF YOU LOVE YOUR CHOCOLATE

AND YOU TASTE IT AND LET IT

WORK, THE AMOUNT YOUR HUNGRY

FOR DROPS.

Wendy: WHAT EVERYBODY

WANTS TO KNOW IS HOW IN THE

WORLD CAN YOU EAT IT AND

LOSE WEIGHT?

THE DATA ARE AMAZING.

IN EDITIO ADDITION TO THE

DATA, SHOWING IT IS GOOD FOR

BLOOD PRESSURE, FOR HEART,

FOR BRAIN, FOR MIND, IT IS

ALSO GOOD FOR WEIGHT

CONTROL.

THE PEOPLE WHO ATE IT THE

MOST CONSISTENTLY ARE THE

ONES WHO LOSE THE MOST

WEIGHT.

HAVING THOSE THREE OR FOUR

EVERY SINGLE DAY, EVERY

SINGLE DAY.

Wendy: I UNDERSTAND YOU

CAN HAVE THIS SIZE EIGHT

TIMES A DAY.

ABSOLUTELY.

WHAT I HAVE YOU DO IS

INCORPORATE THAT INTO YOUR

MEALS.

IF YOU HAVE THIS 30 MINUTES

BEFORE YOU EAT AND FIVE

MINUTES AFTER, THE NATURAL

COCOA BUT THAT IS IN THERE

HELPS CONTROL YOUR HUNGER.

SO YOU GET TO HAVE THE

CHOCOLATE, BUT THEN IT

CONTROLS HOW MUCH YOUR

HUNGRY FOR AT THE PLATE AND

IN BETWEEN MEALS.

Wendy: A LOT OF PEOPLE

SAY THEY DON'T LIKE DARK

CHOCOLATE.

IT IS BIDDER.

BITTER.

BUT IT IS AN ACQUIRED

TASTE.

YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR

TASTE.

Wendy: THIS IS 88%.

I USUALLY ONLY DO 70%.

H'MMM.

THERE IS SOME SWEETNESS

THERE.

THE MORE YOU TASTE, THE

MORE YOU GET THAT.

BUT IF YOU CHEW, SWALLOW,

CHEW, SWALLOW, YOU DON'T GET

THAT.

YOU HAVE TO TASTE THAT.

Wendy: FOR BREAKFAST,

WE HAVE A SMOOTHIE.

WHAT DO YOU CALL THIS?

THIS HAS BLACK STRAP

MOLASSES IN THERE, WHICH IS

AWESOME FOR YOU.

AND COCOA.

IF YOU CHOOSE COCOA, I WANT

YOU TO CHOOSE THE NATURAL,

UNSWEETENED, AND IT GOES

RIGHT IN THERE.

Wendy: OH, MY GOODNESS,

THIS IS DELICIOUS.

ARE THERE EGGS IN THERE?

NO.

Wendy: WHAT MAKES IT

FROSTY?

THEY WHIPPED IT UP.

Wendy: THERE IS

CHOCOLATE IN THIS BEEF

STEW?

WHENEVER YOU MAKE

ANYTHING SAVORY, ADD COCOA.

IT DEEPENS THE FLAVOR OF

THIS.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY

ASTOUNDING.

Wendy: OH, MY

GOODNESS.

WE HAVE MORE THINGS, BUT

YOU'LL HAVE TO GET THE BOOK

BECAUSE WE'RE OUT OF TIME.

THIS IS MY MOST DELICIOUS

INTERVIEW EVER.

THE BOOK, "EAT CHOCOLATE,

LOSE WEIGHT," IS IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

CHECK THE IT OUT AND GET A

TASTE FOR YOURSELF.

Pat: EICH I'V I'VE GOT

A LITTLE PIECE IN MY HAND.

MILK CHOCOLATE WITH A LOT OF

SUGAR IS NOT WHAT WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DARK

CHOCOLATE, HIGH COCOA.

THE OTHER SETS UP A

CRAVING.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM: "WHATEVER YOU

ASK IN MY NAME, THAT WILL I

DO, SO THAT THE FATHER WILL

BE GLORIFIED IN THE SON."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
