THIS WEEK ON "CHRISTIAN WORLD

NEWS," SHE SPOKE OUT AGAINST

RADICAL ISLAM IN GERMANY.

THIS BRAVE GERMAN WOMAN IS

SHARING HER VIEWS ON THE STATE

OF THE CHURCH AND HOW IT CAN

REGAIN ITS SPIRITUAL POWER.

PLUS THEY LEFT ISLAM TO FOLLOW

CHRIST AND HAD TO FLEE THEIR

MUSLIM COUNTRY FOR SAFETY.

THEIR PASSION IS BRINGING

REVIVAL TO THIS SMALL CHURCH.

THE BIBLE STORY ON FILM THAT HAS

GENERATED A LOT OF CONTROVERSY.

THE STARS OF "NOAH" TAKES US

INSIDE THE MOVIE.

MODERN DAY PROPHET STANDS FOR

TRUTH IN GERMANY.

WELCOME TO "CHRISTIAN WORLD

NEWS," I AM GEORGE THOMAS.

ISLAM IS GAINING INFLUENCE ALL

THE TIME.

IN GERMANY, ONE CHRISTIAN WOMAN

HAS TAKEN A VERY PUBLIC STAND

AGAINST IT.

REPORTER: SHE BECAME KNOWN AS

THE INTERNET AS THE BRAVE GERMAN

WOMAN.

LAST YEAR, SHE STOOD UP AND

SHOUTED TO THE CONGREGATION THAT

JESUS CHRIST AND NOT ALLAH IS

LORD OF GERMANY.

THEN REPEATED THE WORDS OF

MARTIN LUTHER IN 1521 WHEN HE

DEFENDED HIS BELIEF IN SCRIPTURE

ALONE.

THE YOUTUBE VIDEO BY CBN NEWS

HAVE BOTH GONE VIRAL BY

PUBLICALLY ATTACKING THE LIE OF

ISLAM, BECAUSE SHE IS A BURDEN

FOR THE SPIRITUAL REBIRTH OF

GERMANY.

GARY LANE TALKED ABOUT WITH

HEIDI MUND ABOUT THE CHURCH IN

GERMANY AND STATE OF ISLAM.

REPORTER: WHAT MOTIVATED YOU

TO TAKE THIS ACTION?

WHAT MOTIVATED ME IS THE LORD

HIMSELF.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE LORD OF

GERMANY.

WE ARE HIS PEOPLE.

EVEN MANY OF US DON'T KNOW HIM.

REPORTER: WERE YOU AFRAID OF

OPPOSITION?

THREW US OUT OF THE CHURCH

AND SILENT DEMONSTRATION OUTSIDE

AFTER CHURCH AND THEY WANTED TO

SHOW THEY DON'T AGREE WITH WHAT

HAPPENED IN THE CHURCH BUT FOR

ME IT WASN'T ENOUGH TO BE

SILENT.

THERE ARE TIMES TO BE SILENT AND

SOMETIMES MAYBE TO SHOUT.

REPORTER: WHAT WERE YOU

HOPING TO ACCOMPLISH?

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR AGAIN WE

WILL BE KNOWN FOR JESUS CHRIST

AGAIN.

FOR OUR NEW FAITH AND OUR CROWD

OF MISSIONARIES WHO COME OUT OF

GERMANY AND BLESS THE WHOLE

WORLD.

THAT IS MY HEART.

REPORTER: MARTIN LUTHER, WHAT

A CHRISTIAN HERITAGE YOU HAVE IN

GERMANY.

MARTIN LUTHER, LUTHERAN CHURCH,

EVEN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS STRONG

THERE, WHAT HAS HAPPENED?

WHAT HAS HAPPENED, HMM, THEY

PUT THE WORD OF GOD OUT OF THE

CHURCH.

REPORTER: OUT OF THE CHURCH

ITSELF?

THAT PREACH SOMETHING, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT SOMETIMES IT IS.

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT IF YOU PUT OUT THE WORD OF

GOD OUT OF THE CHURCH, YOU PUT

OUT THE SPIRIT, TOO.

YOU PUT OUT JESUS.

WE CANNOT CHANGE THE WORD OF

GOD.

WE HAVE TO CHANGE OUR HEARTS.

WE HAVE TO HUMBLE OURSELVES AND

TO FALL ON OUR KNEES AND ASK HIM

FOR FORGIVENESS.

THIS IS THE RIGHT WAY.

WE CANNOT CHANGE THE WORD OF

GOD.

WE HAVE TO LET HIM CHANGE US.

THIS IS THE RIGHT WAY.

THIS MEANS HUMBLE ENOUGH SO WE

HAVE TO HUMBLE OURSELVES AGAIN

AND REACH OUT FOR HIM BECAUSE HE

IS WAITING.

HE WANTS TO FORGIVE US.

WE HAVE TO SEEK HIM AGAIN.

IN 1989, I WAS THERE WHEN THE

BERLIN WALL CAME DOWN IN

NOVEMBER '89, GREAT EXCITEMENT.

MANY CHRISTIANS SAID WE ARE

GOING INTO EAST BERLIN IN THE

EASTERN BLOCK AND BRING THE

GOSPEL THERE.

MANY DID, WHAT HAPPENED?

I THINK NOT TOO MANY.

EASTERN GERMANY IS STILL A

MISSION LAND.

MOST DON'T KNOW WHAT EVANGELIST

IS OR MISSION.

YOU ARE FROM THERE?

YES.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO JESUS IS.

IT IS STILL ATHEIST?

YES.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE ALL WHO

LISTEN NOW, GO THERE, PREACH THE

GOSPEL, IF GOD LEADS YOU TO DO

SO.

WHAT IS YOUR HOPE?

WE NEED REAL CHRISTIAN

LEADERS, DEDICATED ONES SERVANT

OF GOD.

I EMPHASIZE SERVANT BECAUSE WE

HAVE TO BE CHANGED TO SERVE

YOUNG PEOPLE.

TO SERVE THEM AND GIVE THEM AND

THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS LOVE,

JUST A CHANGE FOR GERMANY.

AND RAISE UP A GODLY

GENERATION.

HEIDI, GOD BLESS YOUR EFFORTS.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT

YOU THINK OF HEIDI.

CWN FACEBOOK PAGE.

REVIVAL HAS COME TO SOME

CHURCHES THROUGH MUSLIM

CONVERTS, DALE HURD REPORTS FROM

BERLIN.

REPORTER: PARTS OF GERMANY

SOME OF THE MOST GOD LESS AREAS.

CHURCH ATTENDANCE IS GROWING

THANKS FORMER MUSLIMS FROM IRAN.

THEY HAVE DOUBLED THE SIZE OF

THE CONGREGATION.

CAME LIKE AN UNEXPECTED

SUMMER RAIN, SUDDENLY, NEW

PEOPLE CAME EVERY WEEK AND ASKED

TO BE BAPTIZED.

IN THE BEGINNING, ONLY FIVE OR

SIX IRANIANS CAME.

THEY WERE EASY TO SPOT AND GOT

TO KNOW THEM.

OVER TIME THEY BROUGHT THEIR

FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS.

GERMANY HAS EXPERIENCED AN

ISLAM.

A COUNTRY LARGELY TURNED ITS

BACK ON -- THEY HAVE ALREADY

EXPERIENCED THE DARKNESS ANDRIA

MITCHELL

HUNGRY FOR CHRISTIANITY.

MICHAEL ASKED WE DISGUISE HIS

FACE.

WE MET IN AN UNDERGROUND

FLAT.

WE SPOKE ABOUT JESUS.

WE TRIED TO DO A BIBLE STUDY

WITHOUT A BIBLE.

ALL OF THEM ACCEPTED CHRIST

AND HAD TO FLEE OR RISK DEATH.

I WAS ON MY WAY TO A HOUSE

MEETING, I DIDN'T GO IN.

LATER I CALLED MY MOTHER, SHE

SAID THE POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR

YOU SO MY FAMILY HELPED ME FLEE

MY COUNTRY.

WHEN I WAS IN IRAN, I WANTED

TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

IT IS FORBIDDEN FOR MUSLIMS TO

BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

IT WAS DIFFICULT.

I HAD TO LEAVE MY PARENTS.

I LOST MY HOME AND FAMILY.

THE PERSIANS WERE SURPRISED

TO FIND SO MANY GERMANS DIS

DISINTERPRDI

DISINTERESTED IN CHRIST.

A LOT OF GERMANS ARE

CHRISTIANS IN NAME ONLY AND

DISAPPOINTED GERMANS TAKE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR GRANTED.

BEING BAPTIZED CAN HELP

REFUGEE STAY IN GERMANY RATHER

THAN DEPORTED.

SISTER ROSE MARIE TAKES THEM

THROUGH A RIGOROUS VERSE OF

CLASSES.

IT IS THE CASE WITH ONLY A

FEW, IN FACT, SOME OF THEM WHO

HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED HAVE COME

BACK FOR THE FOURTH TIME.

IT IS NOT KNOWN HOW MANY HAVE

CONVERTED IN GERMANY.

IT IS A NATIONWIDE PHENOMENON

AND NUMBERING IN THE THOUSANDS.

AT THE HOUSE OF GOD'S HELP, IT

HAS REINVIGORATED THE

CONGREGATION, DALE HURD, CBN

NEWS, BERLIN.

UP NEXT, STORY OF "NOAH" AND

THE BIG ARK COMES TO THE BIG

SCREEN.

SOME SAY YOU SHOULD AVOID THIS

FILM NOT ALL OF THEM.

MORE WHEN YOU COME BACK.

INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN

CHARITY WORLD VISION CHANGED

HIRING POLICIES TO ALLOW GAY

EMPLOYEES.

AFTER WIDESPREAD PROTEST, WORLD

VISION SENT A LETTER TO

SUPPORTERS SAYING THE BOARD MADE

A MISTAKE AND RESTORED POLICY

DEFINING MARRIAGE AS BETWEEN ONE

MAN AND ONE WOMAN.

THE MUCH TALKED ABOUT ABOUT FILM

"NOAH" NOW IN THEATRES,

HOLLYWOOD'S ADAPTATION GENERATED

BUZZ.

SOME SAY THE DIRECTOR PUSHED IT

TOO FAR.

HE SAT DOWN WITH EPHRAIM GRAHAM

AND TALK ABOUT THE MOVIE HE HAS

BEEN WORKING ON THE LAST 16

YEARS.

REPORTER: DARREN ARONOFSKY'S

FASCINATION WITH "NOAH" BEGAN AT

13 WHEN HE ONE AWARD AT 13

BRINGING THIS TO THE BIG SCREEN

IS A DREAM COME TRUE AND 16

YEARS OF WORK.

THIS IS A GREAT ENTERTAINMENT

FIRST AND FOREMOST AND A VISUAL

SPECTACLE WONDERS.

USING THE BIBLE AS A

BLUEPRINT AND HOLLYWOOD HEAD

HITTERS LIKE RUSSELL CROWE AS

NOAH.

ACADEMY AWARD WINNING ANTHONY

HOPKINS PLAYS NOAH'S

GRANDFATHER.

I REMEMBER GROWING UP AND

HEARING NOAH IN SUNDAY SCHOOL.

I DO BELIEVE IT IS THE FIRST

TIME IN SUNDAY SCHOOL.

ONLY DAY I EVER ATTENDED SUNDAY

SCHOOL.

I REMEMBER TELLING MY MOTHER

ABOUT THE SNAKES AND ELEPHANTS.

HOW WOULD YOU COMPARE TO WHAT

WE ARE SEEING ON FILM?

THIS IS A SWEEPING EPIC OF A

STORY THAT GOES BEYOND THE

BIBLE.

OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN CHOSEN

FOR A GREAT TASK TO SAVE THE

INNOCENT.

THE INNOCENT?

YES.

WHY INNOCENT?

AN EARLY DRAFT OF DARREN

ARONOFSKY'S SCRIPT INSPIRED THIS

GRAPHIC NOVEL.

STILL THIS ISN'T A CHILDREN'S

STORY.

RUSSELL'S CROWE DEPICTION OF

NOAH IS DARK AND HEAVY.

SOME PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HIM IN

SUPERHERO STATUS BUT HE WAS JUST

A MAN GIVEN A PARTICULARLY HEAVY

TASK AND QUITE A BURDEN TO

CARRY.

DID YOU REALLY THINK YOU

COULD PROTECT YOURSELF?

THERE IS NO PROTECTION.

WHAT IS IT?

AN ARK TO HOLD THE INNOCENT.

RETURN.

NOW WE HAVE ALL BEEN JUDGED.

LOOKING AT THE BIBLICAL TEXT,

WE DON'T HEAR FROM HIS WIFE,

HEAR FROM HIS CHILDREN.

WHERE DO YOU GO FROM THAT TO A

FILM OF THIS MAGNITUDE?

THE MORE INTERESTING THINGS

EMERGE.

IN ANTICIPATION OF THE FILM

IN THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY,

CALLING IT ENVIRONMENTAL CRUSADE

SAYING YOU TAKE TOO MANY

LICENSES THAT VEER AWAY FROM

BIBLICAL TEXT.

ALL THE CONTROVERSY OF PEOPLE

THAT HAVEN'T SEEN THE FILM.

NOW THEY ARE SEEING THE FILM AND

THE TIDE CHANGED.

IN THAT TIDE, NATIONAL

RELIGIOUS BROADCASTERS PRAISED

IT TO THE BIBLICAL THEMES OF

SIN, JUDGMENT AND RESTORATION.

ONLY AFTER PARAMOUNT PICTURES

ADVERTISED THE FILM AS BEING

INSPIRED BY THE FILM OF "NOAH"

NOTING ARTISTIC LICENSES.

NOW THAT PEOPLE HAVE SEEN IT,

THEY ARE NOTING THE VALUES ARE

CONNECTED TO THE ORIGINAL STORY

AND RAISE CONVERSATION ABOUT THE

ORIGINAL STORY.

EVEN WITH CONTROVERSY, THIS

EPIC FILM HAS PEOPLE TALKING

ABOUT AN OLD TESTAMENT BIBLE

STORY THAT HASN'T INSPIRED A

BLOCK BUSTER UNTIL NOW.

IT HAS BEEN A GENERA DEAD FOR

50 YEARS, NO ONE HAS UNDERTAKEN

THE GREAT MIRACLES AND TRIED TO

BRING THEM TO LIFE FOR A 21ST

CENTURY AUDIENCE.

WITH ALL THE EFFECTS USED FOR

SUPER HERO FILMS WHEN YOU HAVE

ORIGINAL SUPERHEROS LIKE NOAH,

WHAT YOU CAN BRING TO LIFE IS SO

EXCITING.

IT IS THE LATEST FILM RIDING

HIGH AT THE BOX OFFICE.

CHANGED THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS.

THEY ARE SETTING THEIR SIGHTS ON

THE SITE OF THE FIRST PENTECOST.

RECENTLY CHRISTIAN LEADERS

CAME TO JERUSALEM TO WORSHIP AND

WONDERFUL LEADERS TO PARTNER

CENTURY.

AS THEY PREPARE TO PASS THE

SPIRITUAL BATON TO A NEW

ALREADY SEE GOD AT WORK.

TRANSFORMATION AMONG THE

LEADERS.

UNITY HAS BEEN THE KEY.

I SEE 21, SO IMPORTANT, SO

NECESSARY.

WHEN BRETHREN GATHER TOGETHER

IN UNITY, THE LORD COMMANDS A

BLESSING.

I BELIEVE THE BLESSING OF THE

END TIMES IS THE OUTPOURING OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.
