The 700 Club - April 1, 2014

Baseball's best knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey talks faith with CBN Sports. Plus, Mark was piloting a small firefighting aircraft when the plane's systems malfunctioned and he began to lose altitude. Read Transcript


THE PITCHER WHO DROVE THE

WAY HE LIVED LIFE, BY

GETTING A GRIP AND THEN

LETTING IT GO.

WHEN IT LEAVES YOUR HAND,

YOU KNOW IT'S GOING TO DO

WHAT IT'S GOING TO DO.

PLUS...

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE

AIRPLANE DROPPED.

HOUSES ARE GOING UNDER ME.

THERE HAS BEEN A CRASH.

I WOULD BE LYING IF I SAID I

DIDN'T THINK, WELL, HE'S

DEAD.

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

IN CASE YOU MISSED THE NEWS,

A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE, THE

FORMER PRIME MINISTER OF

ISRAEL HAS BEEN CONVICTED BY

AN ISRAELI COURT OF

CORRUPTION.

WE HAVEN'T MUCH

ABOUT THAT IN THE NEWS, BUT

I'M SURE IT HAS MADE

HEADLINES IN ISRAEL.

THE ISRAELI COURTS ARE TOUGH

ON THEIR ELECTED OFFICIALS.

THEY WANT THEM TO TOE THE

LINE.

I THINK THAT'S A GOOD THING

FOR ISRAEL.

BUT SWITCHING TO THE U.N.,

ONCE AGAIN THE UNITED

NATIONS IS WARNING ABOUT

GLOBAL WARMING.

THE SKY IS DEFINITELY

FALLING.

AND IT'S GOING TO BE

FLOODING, FLOOD FLOODING,

MORE FLOODING, DISASTER,

HIGH FOOD PRICES, AND THE

END OF THE WORLD.

BUT MANY SCIENTISTS SAY THE

FEARS ARE EXAGGERATED.

Terry: SOME EXPERTS SAY

THE CONCERNS HAVE BEEN

OVERBLOWN FOR YEARS, AND ONE

REPORT SAYS THE NEW REPORT

IS ARM ARMIST.

Reporter: THE REPORT

WARNS OF DIRE CONSEQUENCES

IF THE WORLD FAILS TO ACT.

THE MESSAGE IS VERY, VERY

STARK, UNLESS WE CUT OUR

GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

VERY RAPIDLY, WE WILL BE

INFLICTING DISASTER UPON

OURSELVES AND GENERATIONS TO

COME.

IT SAYS WE NEED TO REDUCE

EMISSIONS IN THE LONG-TERM.

Reporter: A GROUP OF

PRESTIGIOUS SCIENTISTS

CREATED THE REPORT, BUT NOT

EVERYONE IN THE SCIENTIFIC

COMMUNITY AGREES WITH ITS

FINDINGS.

IN FACT, ONE OF THE AUTHORS

OF THE REPORT FINDS ITS

CONCLUSIONS TOO ALARMIST.

WHAT THE REPORT FORGETS

TO SAY IS THAT EVEN THOUGH

CLIMATE CHANGE MAY PRODUCE

IT BY 2%, IT IS A CHANGE,

BUT IT IS NOT THE CHANGE OF

CLIMATE CHANGE, BUT IT MEANS

THAT IT WILL GO UP MORE

SLOWLY.

Reporter: A

NON-GOVERNMENTAL GROUP OF

SCIENTISTS BACKED BY THE

HARTLAND INSTITUTE IS ALSO

PUSHING BACK.

IT MAINTAINS THAT HIGHER

CARBON DIOXIDE

CONCENTRATIONS AND RISING

TEMPERATURES ARE

CAUSING, QUOTE,"NO HARM TO

THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT OR TO

HUMAN HEALTH."

FOR YEARS SOME SCIENTISTS

HAVE WARNED THAT CLIMATE

CHANGE ADVOCATES VISIT A

RADICAL AGENDA, EVEN

COMPARING THEM TO RELIGIOUS

CUTS.

OTHERS SIMPLY NOTE THAT

POWER, PRESTIGE, AND MONEY

ARE ALL PART OF THE DEBATE.

THERE IS, OF COURSE, A

TOTALLY DIFFERENT AGENDA FOR

PEOPLE WHO ARE PUSHING

GLOBAL WARMING.

THAT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY,

ABOUT MAKING MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS FOR CERTAIN

INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE PUSHING

THE WHOLE THING.

I'M NOT CONVINCED THERE

ARE THERE MANY SCIENTISTS

THAT VIEW THIS AS AN AP POCK

APOCCOLIPTIC END OF WORLD,

BUT IF I SAY THAT, I'LL GET

ON TV.

Reporter: HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THE CLIMATE IN

MARS HAS GONE UP.

IT IS WARMER IN MARS, BUT

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY S.U.V.S

IN MARS, NO POWER PLANTS,

BUT THE SUN SEEMS TO HAVE A

GREAT ROLE TO PLAY.

AND IT PROBABLY WILL IF IT

GETS WARMER HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

THE LAST TIME I HEARD, THIS

HAS BEEN ONE OF THE COLDEST

WINTERS ON RECORD.

WHILE BOTH SIDES DEBATE

GLOBAL WARMING, THERE IS NO

DOUBT ABOUT THE THREAT OF A

DEADLY EARTHQUAKE IN

LOS ANGELES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PAT, FRIDAY

NIGHT'S EARTHQUAKE IN

LOS ANGELES IS RAISING

CONCERNS ABOUT HOW BAD A

POSSIBLE EARTHQUAKE IN THE

CITY ITSELF COULD BE.

THE QUAKE CAME FROM A FAULT

LINE THAT RUNS THROUGH A

HEAVILY POPULATED AREA.

THE U.S. GE GEOLOGICAL

SURVEY SAYS A 7-POINT

EARTHQUAKE COULD HIT THERE.

CAN YOU GUARD AGAINST AN

EARTHQUAKE AND PROTECT

IMPORTANT HISTORICAL

ARTIFACTS AT THE SAME TIME.

EXPERTS MET IN JERUSALEM

RECENTLY TO ANSWER THAT

QUESTION.2

Reporter: THE WALLED

CITY OF JERUSALEM IS

INSTANTLY RECOGNIZABLE, AND

ONE SYMBOL STANDS ABOVE THE

REST.

THE TOWER OF DAVID IS THE

GATEWAY TO THE OLD CITY, AND

ALSO TO THE NEW ONE.

Reporter: THIS MUSEUM

DIRECTOR GAVE US A RARE LOOK

AT THE PANORAMIC VIEW OF

JERUSALEM FROM THE TOWER OF

DAVID.

ITS HISTORY AND VALUE ARE

UNQUESTIONED, AND MANY

WONDER, COULD IT AND OTHER

JERUSALEM RELICS WITHSTAND

AN EARTHQUAKE?

IT FORCED ITALY TO ANSWER

THAT QUESTION IN 2009 AND

2012.

MAJOR EARTHQUAKES KILLED

HUNDREDS AND DESTROYED

NUMEROUS BUILDINGS,

INCLUDING HISTORICAL SITES.

OUR JOB IS TO HELP

PEOPLE, OF COURSE, AND TO

ENSURE BUILDINGS THAT COULD

BE DAMAGED BY EARTHQUAKES.

Reporter: HE SHARED HIS

EARTHQUAKE EXPERIENCE AND

WHAT HE LEARNED AT THIS

RECENT SEMINAR.

I WAS ONE OF THE EXPERTS

THAT IMPLEMENTED OUR

TECHNICAL PROCEDURES TO

SHORE OR PROP UP THE

BUILDINGS.

FOR THE AREAS TO EXPLAINS

OUR JOB.

Reporter: IT IS ALL

PART OF AN INTERNATIONAL

PROJECT TO PROTEST

HISTORICAL SITES FROM

EARTHQUAKES.

THE TOWER OF DAVID HERE IN

THE CENTER OF JERUSALEM IS

THE FIRST HERITAGE SITE TO

BE CHOSEN FOR THIS

INTERNATIONAL PROJECT.

IT HAS BACTERI BEEN

INSTALLED WITH A MONITORING

SYSTEM FROM THE TOP ALL THE

WAY DOWN TO THE BOTTOM.

THE LAST MAJOR EARTHQUAKE TO

HIT JERUSALEM WAS IN 1927.

ISRAEL STRATTLES THE JORDAN

VALLMYR, AND EXPERTS PREDICT

IT IS TIME FOR ANOTHER.

WE HAD EARTHQUAKES, AND

WE WILL HAVE EARTHQUAKES.

Reporter: THIS DOCTOR

HEADS UP THE EFFORT TO

PREPARE ISRAEL FOR SUCH A

DISASTER.

WHAT WE ARE URGING OUR

ENGINEERING COMMUNITY AND

ALL OF THE NATIONAL

AUTHORITIES IS TO REALLY TO

CHECK THE STRUCTURES TO

WITHSTAND EARTHQUAKES AND DO

SOMETHING, IF POSSIBLE, AND

IT IS POSSIBLE.

Reporter: THE GOAL FOR

IS TO PRESERVE JERUSALEM'S

TREASURES, LIKE THE TOWER OF

DAVID.

EVERYBODY IS TALKING

ABOUT THE BIG EARTHQUAKE

THAT IS COMING, AND WE MUST

BE PART OF THE ACADEMIC

RESEARCH.

WE LIVE IN THE HOLY LAND,

AND THE PROMISED LAND, AND

WE HAVE ALSO THE PROMISE FOR

OUR CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN THAT SOMETHING

WILL REMAIN FOR THEM.WKg CHRIS5"QIr

MITCHELL, THE TOWER OF

DAVID, JERUSALEM.

PAT, AND EXPERTS ARE

ESPECIALLY WORRIED ABOUT THE

OLD CITY BECAUSE IT IS BUILT

NOT ON SOLID ROCK, BUT ON

LAYERS OF DEBRIS.

Pat: WELL, SO ARE MANY

CITIES IN JAPAN.

THEY ARE BUILT ON A FILL

GOING OUT INTO THE OCEAN.

WHEN A BIG EARTHQUAKE COMES,

THAT WILL JUST LIQUIFY AND

MARCH THINGS OUT.

I WAS IN JERUSALEM (WIEN AN

EARTHQUAKE STRUCK.

I FELT A BUMP IN THE BED

BEHIND ME, AND I WONDERED

WHO WAS HITTING THE WALL

BEHIND ME AND IT WASN'T

ANYBODY.

THE CURTAIN WAS SWAYING BACK

BACK AND FORTH.

IT WAS DOWN IN THE RIFF

VALLEY, AND THERE IS A MAJOR

FAULT FROM AFRICA ALL THE

WAY TO THAT AREA.

THE BIBLE TELLS US THE TIME

WRL COME WHEN THERE WILL BE

A MAJOR, MAJOR EARTHQUAKE,

AND THE MOUNT OF OLIVES WILL

SHIFT, AND THERE WILL BE A

HIGHWAY GOING FROM THERE

STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE

DESERT AREAS.

IT WILL HAPPEN.

I'M SURE SOME OF THOSE

STRUCTURES WILL STAND, AND

SOME OF THEM WON'T.

BEING IN AN EARTHQUAKE IS AN

AWFUL FEELING.

I'M SURE THE PEOPLE IN

CALIFORNIA HAS EXPERIENCED

SO MANY OF THEM, BUT I DON'T

THINK YOU EVER GET USED TO

THE FACT THAT THE GROUND

UNDERNEATH YOU IS SHAKING.

Terrí9 I HAD IT HAPPEN

ONCE WHEN I WAS IN

CALIFORNIA, AND IT IS A VERY

STRANGE SENSATION TO FEEL

THINGS AROUND YOU MOVING,

AND IT TAKES A MINUTE TO

REGISTER WHAT IT IS, DOESN'T

IT?

Pat: MY SON, TIM, WAS

IN NORTH RIDGE WHEN THAT

THING HIT, AND STUFF WAS

FALLING OFF THE WALL, AND HE

DIDN'T QUITE KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

Terry: YOU DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

YOU'RE SORT OF STOPPED IN

YOUR TRACKS.

Pat: THEY KEEP TALKING

ABOUT THIS BONE IN L.A.,

AND THIS NEW FAULT THEY HAVE

DISCOVERED -- OR THEY'VE

BEGUN TO EMPHASIZE, GOES

FROM HOLLYWOOD, AND YOU CAN

SEE IT MOVING, AND IT GOES

ALL THE WAY UP INTO

CALIFORNIA.

THERE ARE MANY FAULTS OUT

THERE, AND WHEN THOSE ROCKS

START TO MOVE, IT DOESN'T

TAKE MUCH.

THEY HOLD AND GET TIGHT AND

SUDDEN THEY BREAK.

IT IS JUST THAT BREAK, IT

DOESN'T TAKE MORE THAN A FEW

FEET.

Terry: AND IT HAPPENS

USUALLY PRETTY QUICKLY.

Pat: YEAH.

AND IT'S OVER.

BUT, ANYHOW, PEOPLE ARE

FOCUSING ON THAT, AND WE'LL

SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

YOU LOOK AT THE BIBLE, AND

JESUS SAID THERE ARE GOING

TO BE EARTHQUAKES, AND AN

INTENSIFICATION OF

EARTHQUAKES AND FAMINE

BEFORE THE END OF DAYS.

SO IT'S ON THE WAY.

JOHN?

PAT, THE UNITED STATES

MAY RELEASE AN ISRAELI

PRISONER AS PART OF A DEAL

TO EXTEND THE MIDDLE EAST

PEACE TALKS.

JONATHAN PALLER WAS

CONVICTED OF SPYING ON

BEHALF OF ISRAEL IN 1987,

NOW THE U.S. MAY SET HIM

FREE TO GET ISRAEL TO

RELEASE 400 PALESTINIAN

PRISONERS.

ISRAEL IS CONCERNED THAT YET

ANOTHER RELEASE OF DANGEROUS

PRISONERS WILL NOT BE MET BY

ANY SINCERE MOVES BY THE

PALESTINIANS.

PALLER OPPOSES BEING FREED

IN EXCHANGE FOR MURDERS,

CALLING IT A SHAMEFUL DEAL.

Pat: I THINK IT IS A

SHAMEFUL THING WHAT WE DID

FOR PALLER.

HE WAS WORKING FOR A

FRIENDLY COMPANY, AND HE

RELEASED A FEW DOCUMENTS.

AND SOMEHOW, IF I'M HEARING

CONTRIBUTED THE SPYING TO

JONATHAN PALLER, AND THOUGHT

HE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

BLOOD-LETTING THAT TOOK

PLACE IN THE C.I.A., AND

THEREFORE THEY PUT HIM IN

ICELATION, AN ISOLATION,

AND IT WAS HORRIBLE WHAT @&C @&Cú

THEY DID TO HIM.

SURELY HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN

RELEASED.

I'VE BEEN CALLING FOR THE

RELEASE OF JONATHAN PALLER

FOR YEARS.

WHAT WE DID TO HIM WAS JUST

PLAIN WRONG.

JOHN?

PAT, IN ASIA, RISING

TENSIONS BETWEEN NORTH AND

SOUTH KOREA.

THE COUNTRIES FIRED HUNDREDS

OF ARTILLERY SHELLS INTO

EACH OTHER'S WATERS

FOLLOWING AN ANNOUNCEMENT

FROM PYONGYANG THAT IT WOULD

FIRE LIVE SHELLS INTO THE

BERKLIN SEA.

Reporter: IT IS ONLY A

MILD SIGN OF AGGRESSION.

ABOUT A HUNDRED SHELLS

LANDED IN SOUTH KOREAN

WATERS.

SEOUL RESPONDED BY FIRING

ABOUT 300 SHELLS

TOWARDS THE

NORTH TERRITORY.

PYONGYANG RECENTLY STEPPED

UP ITS THREATS AGAINST SOUTH

KOREA.

NORTH KOREAN OFFICIALS

CALLED TZE WAR EXERCISES AN

ATTEMPT TO OCCUPY

PYONGYANG.

THE ALLIES SAY THEY'RE

ROUTINE AND DEFENSIVE.

THIS EXERCISE IS NOT

DESIGNED TO REACT TO ANY

POLITICAL SITUATION.

IT IS NOT DESIGNED TO SEND A

MESSAGE.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE

HAVE TO DO TO BE ABLE TO

INTEROPERATE WITH OUR

ALLIES.

Reporter: ON SUNDAY,

PYONGYANG THREATENED TO

CONDUCT A FORCED NUCLEAR

TEST, AIMED AT APPROVING ITS

ABILITY TO ATTACK MID AND

LONG-RANGE TARGETS.

MEANWHILE, THE COUNTRY'S

SOLE ALLY IN THE REGION,

CHINA, IS CALLING FOR BOTH

NORTH AND SOUTH KOREA TO

SHOW RESTRAINT.

WE HOPE ALL SIDES

INVOLVED CAN REMAIN CALM AND

RESTRAINED, REFRAME FROM

TAKING ACTIONS THAT WILL

HEIGHTEN THE TENSION AND

WORK TOGETHER TO PRESERVE

THE PEACE AND STABILITY.

Reporter: BEIJING

TRADITIONALLY SIDES WITH THE

UNITED NATIONS IN CONDEMNING

PROVOCATIVE ACTIONS FROM THE

NORTH.

BUT THEY HAVE FALLEN SHORT

FROM SIGNALLING OUT NORTH

KOREA, SAYING, INSTEAD, THAT

BOTH SIDES ARE POSSIBLE.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

AMERICA'S SECRETARY OF

DEFENSE IS DOWNPLAYING

RECENT REPORTS THAT RUSSIAN

TROOPS ARE PULLING AWAY FROM

THE UKRAINE BORDER.

THEY CLAIMED A BATTALION OF

500 TROOPS ARE BACKING

DOWN.

I CANNOT CONFIRM, BOB,

ONE WAY OR THE OTHER,

WHETHER THE RUSSIANS ARE

PULLING TROOPS BACK FROM THE

UKRAINIAN-RUSSIAN BORDER.

AS YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT OBAMA

MADE IT VERY CLEAR TO

PRESIDENT PUTIN IN THEIR

CONVERSATION THAT THAT IS

GOING TO BE REQUIRED,

NECESSARY, IN ORDER FOR US

TO HAVE ANY FURTHER

MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION

ABOUT HOW WE RESOLVE AND

DEESCALATE THIS CRISIS.

THAT SAID, THERE IS STILL A

TREMENDOUS BUILD-UP OF

RUSSIAN FORCES ON THAT

BORDER.

MEANWHILE, RUSSIA HAS

HIKED THE PRICE ON NATURAL

GAS SENT TO UKRAINE, AND

THAT PUTS ANOTHER SQUEEZE ON

THE STRUGGLING COMPANY AND

ITS CASH-STRAPPED

GOVERNMENT.

PAT?

Pat: I DON'T THINK WAR

IS A GOOD THING.

I'VE BEEN READING A BOOK BY

FORMER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE

GATES, WHO TALKED ABOUT THE

CONSEQUENCES OF WAR.

AS I RECALL, HE SAID THAT

THE DOVES ARE GARBED IN

MILITARY UNIFORMS BECAUSE

THE SERVICE PEOPLE SEE HOW

HORRIBLE WAR IS.

SO WE DON'T WANT TO GO TO

WAR.

BUT WHAT WE CAN DO IS DO

EXACTLY WHAT PUTIN IS DOING:

WE CAN MAKE AVAILABLE OUR

NATURAL GAS, AND WE CAN TAKE

THE LID OFF THE PRODUCTION

OF NATURAL GAS AND OIL IN

AMERICA AND ALLOW THAT

MATERIAL TO BE EXPORTED.

WE CAN ALSO SET UP L.N.G.

L.N.G. LOADING FACILITIES SO

THAT WE C@í TAKE LIQUIFIED

NATURAL GAS AND SHIP IT

OVERSEAS.

AND WE COULD TELL THE

EUROPEANS WE HAVE SOURCES OF

GAS WE'RE GOING TO MAKE

AVAILABLE TO YOU AT

REASONABLE PRICES.

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HELD

CAPTIVE BY THE RUSSIANS.

THE NEXT THING WE CAN DO,

AND WE'VE GOT TO DO IT -- I

MENTIONED YESTERDAY, AND I

SAY IT AGAIN -- THERE ARE

WAYS TO DE-STABILIZE AN

ENEMY'S ECONOMY.

IN TODAY'S CYBERTERROR,

WE'RE MASTERS AT IT.

THERE IS A WEAPON WE'RE NOT

TALKING ABOUT IT.

WE SHOULDN'T TALK ABOUT IT.

YOU DO IT SECRETLY, AND YOU

JUST HIT THEM.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THOSE

OLOGUARDS FIND THEIR BANK

ACCOUNTS HAVE BEEN DRAINED

AND THEY DON'T HAVE ANY

MONEY.

WHERE DID THE MONEY GO?

IT WAS ON THE COMPUTER AND

IT IS NOT THERE ANYMOSU.

THEY'LL FIND THEIR TRADE

BALANCE DOESN'T WORK BECAUSE

NONE OF THE COMPUTERS

FUNCTION.

YOU CAN STOP THEM DEAD IN

THEIR TRACKS.

WE HAVE THE FACILITY TO DO

THAT.

WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A LOT

OF RHETORIC.

I THINK YOU'VE GOT GUYS LIKE

HAGEL, WHO IS A BIT OF A

DOVE.

AND YOU'VE GOT THE SECRETARY

OF STATE WHO IS A NOTED

DOVE, AND YOU'VE GOT A

PRESIDENT WHO IS EXTREMELY

HEHESITANT TO ACT, AND ALL

OF THEM TOGETHER ARE BEING

PLAYED FOR SUCKERS BY PUTIN

WHO IS A VERY DYNAMIC K.G.B.

OPERATIVE.

AND HE IS GOING TO TAKE

EVERYTHING HE CAN UNLESS

WE'RE WILLING TO ACT, AND

WE'VE GOT TO DO IT.

WE HAVE THE TOOLS, AND WE

DON'T HAVE TO SEND OUR

TROOPS TO WAR.

WE COULD JUST BOMB OUT THE

RUSSIAN ECONOMY IN A MATTER

OF WEEKS.

WE COULD LEAVE IT, YOU KNOW,

GASPING ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD.

THEY ARE A THIRD WORLD

COUNTRY.

THEY AREN'T ALL THAT

SOPHISTICATED, BUT WE

CERTAINLY DON'T NEED TO TELL

THEM THAT.

WE DON'T GET ON THE AIR AND

SAY, WELL, THEY'RE A

SECOND-RATE POWER.

YOU DON'T SAY THAT,

MR. PRESIDENT.

YOU SAY, WELL, THEY'RE A

GREAT NATION AND WE HOPE TO

LIVE IN PEACE FOREVER WITH

OUR DEAR FRIENDS IN RUSSIA.

AND THEN UNDERNEATH YOU HAVE

CUT THEIR LEGS OFF.

TERRY?

Terry: OUCH!

Pat: THEY CALL THAT

STEAK CRAB.

Terry: I'LL LEAVE THAT

TO YOU.

WE'VE HEARD THAT STICKS AND

STONES MAY BREAK OUR BONES,

BUT WORDS WILL NEVER HURT

US.

WELL, THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY

TRUE.

OUR WORDS GIVE GOD

SOMETHING TO WORK WITH, OUR

OR WORDS GIVE THE DEVIL

SOMETHING TO WORK WITH.

THAT'S WHY IT IS SO

IMPORTANT THAT WE SPEAK

POSITIVE.

Terry: THE

LIFE-CHANGING POWER OF

POSITIVE WORDS.

THAT'S NEXT.

STILL AHEAD...NIC...

YOU DON'T ALWAYS HAVE A

SAY IN WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR

LIFE.

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF

BASEBALL'S MOST

UNCONVENTIONAL PITCHER.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN ONE

DIRECTION UP, DOWN,

SIDEWAYS.

I'VE BEEN LIKE THE

TRAJECTORY OF A KNUCKLE

BALL.

Pat: WELL, IF YOU WANT

TO TALK TO A GROUP OF

TEENAGERS, I'LL TELL YOU,

YOU START WITH THREE BASIC

QUESTIONS: WHO ARE YOU?

WHY ARE YOU HERE?

AND WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS OF

LIFE THAT EVERYBODY HAS GOT

TO ANSWER SOONER OR LATER.

AND YOU CAN SURE GET A GOOD

CONVERSATION GOING BY ASKING

THEM THOSE QUESTIONS.

CAN ONE PERSON REALLY MAKE A

DIFFERENCE?

ONE TEXAS PASTOR SAYS HE HAS

THE ANSWER, AND HE TOLD PAUL

STRAND ABOUT OUR DIVINE

FINGERPRINT.

Reporter: IN AN AGE OF

BRUTAL RECESSIONS AND

COLLEGE DEGREES THAT LEAD TO

NO JOBS, MANY YOUNG PEOPLE

DRIFT, FEEL HOPELESS.

THEY'VE BEEN

DISILLUSIONED BY THEIR

PARENTS' MARRIAGE DIDN'T

WORK.

THEIR DISILLUSIONED BY A

SOCIETY THAT DOESN'T SEEM TO

BE WORKING.

Reporter: DR. KEITH

SAYS EVERYONE CAN SHAKE OFF

THIS DISILLUSIONIST AND

DRIFT.

HE SAYS IT STARTS WITH

REALIZING AND TOTALLY

ACCEPTING YOU ARE A

ONE-OF-A-KIND CREATION OF

GOD, FORMED TO DO A UNIQUE

MISSION ON THE EARTH.

THE SAME GOD WHO SAID, "LET

THERE BE LIGHT," AND CREATED

A UNIVERSE, ALSO SAID, "LET

THERE BE YOU."

EVERY PERSON HAS GOD'S

GLORY THAT NOBODY HAS EVER

HAD AND NOBODY EVER WILL.

Reporter: KRAFT POINTS

TO CHRIST'S WORDS.

IN THE 22nd VERSE, HE

SAYS, GOD, YOU'VE GIVEN ME

YOUR GLORY, AND NOW I'LL

GIVE IT TO THEM.

Reporter: KRAFT SAYS

THE WORLD CAN BE BLESSED BY

THAT UNIQUE GLORY IN YOU.

BECAUSE THROUGH YOU,

THEY'LL SEE A PART OF GOD

THAT NOBODY HAS EVER SEEN.

Reporter: BUT TO GET IT

OUT, YOU NEED POSITIVE WORDS

TO COMMUNICATE THE GLORY.

OUT OF YOUR HEART FLOW

THE ISSUES OF LIFE.

AND OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF

THE HEART, THE MOUTH

SPEAKS.

Reporter: ONE OF CAST

KRAFT'S MEAN POINTS IS THAT

OUR LIVE IS CRAFTED BY OUR

WORDS.

GOD WITH A WORD CREATED

WORLDS.

AND WE SHAPE OUR WORLD BY

OUR WORDS.

OUR WORDS HAVE THAT MUCH

POWER TO FORM OUR WORLD AND

TO CHANGE OUR WORLD.

IF YOU WILL CHANGE YOUR

WORDS, YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

Reporter: AS MUCH AS A

JUDGE CONDEMNS A CRIMINAL TO

PRISON, WITH WORDS WE CAN

CONDEMN OUR OWN LIVES OR

BLESS THEL>

YOUR LIFE'S SENTENCES

SENTENCE YOUR LIFE.

Reporter: GOD SENDS

POWERFUL WORDS AND SENTENCES

TO OUR LIFE EVERY DAY.

BUT KRAFT SAYS THE PROBLEM

IS WE OFTEN BLOCK THEM AND

EVEN OUR DESTINY WITH

CONSTANT NEGATIVE WORDS.

THAT'S EASY WHEN WE CAN

SELF-TALK IN OUR HEAD 500

WORDS A MINUTE, MANY MORE WE

THAN WE CAN TAKE IN FROM THE

WE SHUT DOWN THE WORDS WE

COULD BE RECEIVING THAT

COULD CHANGE OUR LIFE FOR

THE BETTER.

I CALL NEGATIVITY THE CANCER

OF THE SPIRIT.

Reporter: AS HE PUTS

IT, NEGATIVE PEOPLE NEGATE

THEMSELVES.

HE SAYS YOU MUST LEARN TO

BLOCK THE NEGATIVE AND SPEAK

GOD-GIVEN POSITIVE

SENTENCES, LIKE HE SAYS

EVERY MORNING.

THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS

MADE, AND I WILL REJOICE AND

BE GLAD IN IT.

OUR WORDS GIVE GOD

SOMETHING TO WORK WITH, OR

OUR WORDS GIVE THE DEVIL

SOMETHING TO WORK WITH.

SO IT IS SO IMPORTANT WE

SPEAK POSITIVE.

Reporter: AS KRAFT AND

OTHERS THAT ELEVATE LIFE

POINT OUT, YOU NEED TO BE

INTENTIONAL ABOUT YOUR LIFE,

LIKE INTENTIONALLY HONING

YOUR TALENT BECAUSE THEY ARE

OFTEN A SIGN OF WHAT GOD PUT

YOU ON EARTH TO DO.

YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOUR

G)E VALUES ARE SO YOU CAN

LIVE BY A STANDARD.

YOU NEED TO ALIGN YOURSELF

WE PEOPLE YOU CAN RESPECT,

LOVE, AND SERVE, AND WHO

WILL LOVE YOU BACK.

THEY TALK A LOT ABOUT DOING

SERVANT LEADERSHIP.

IF YOU SERVE AS A LIFESTYLE,

IT LEADS BY YOUR EXAMPLE HOW

TO LIVE MORE GODLY, GENEROUS

LIVES THEMSELVES.

AS KRAFT MIGHT PUT IT, YOU

BEGIN TO ELEVATE AND

TRANSFORM THE WORLD AROUND

YOU.

WHEN YOU'RE LIVING IN

FALLIBLE EXCELLENCE, THAT

PEOPLE SAY I WANT TO GO

WHERE YOU'RE GOING BECAUSE I

SEE IT EVIDENCED IN YOUR

LIFE.

Reporter: AND

INTENTIONAL SERVING MAKES

YOU VALUABLE TO OTHERS, AND

WHEN PEOPLE VALUE YOU, THEY

OPEN DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY TO

YOU.

WHEN THE ECONOMY TANKED,

WHO KEEP WORKING IN THEIR

JOB WITHOUT INCOME.

ONE GUY DID THAT FOR SIX

MONTHS, AND HIS BOSS CAME

BACK TO HIM AND SAID, I'M

LEAVING THIS COMPANY AND

STARTING A NEW COMPANY, AND

YOU'RE MY FIRST HIRE.

Reporter: IF YOU LIVE

TO SERVE GOD AND SERVE

OTHERS, THEY'LL WANT TO DO

GOOD

FOR YOU, AND SO WILL

GOD.

FIND A NEED AND NOT FILL

IT, BUT FIND A NEED AND

SERVE IT.

IF YOU'L DO THAT, YOUR

GREATNESS WILL BE ON

DISPLAY.

NOT TUNED INTO A STATION,

WIFM, WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME,

BUT YOU'LL BE DOING IT WITH

A HEART TO SERVE OTHERS.

GOD LOVES THAT AND HE'LL PUT

HIS HAND ON YOUR LIFE.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

REPORTING FROM FRISCO,

TEXAS.

Pat: GOOD WORD.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THAT

PASTOR.Qj"át BIBLE SAYS "THE MAN

SHALL EAT GOOD BY THE FRUIT

OF HIS LIPS."

IT SOUNDS LIKE MIND OVER

MATTER AND HOCUS-POCUS, BUT

IT IS THE WAY IT WORKS.

GOD CREATED THE WORLD WITH A

WORD.

HE SAID, "LET THERE BE

LIGHT," AND THERE WAS

LIGHT.

AND LET THE WORLD TEAM WITH

ANIMALS, AND THERE WERE

ANIMALS.

HE HAS GIVEN US THE POWER OF

OUR WORDS.

JESUS BROUGHT THE WORD, AND

HE HEALED PEOPLE BY THE

WORD.

AND SO THIS MAN HAS GOT IT

RIGHT.

AND THAT'S WHY HE IS

PROSPERING, AND OTHERS WILL

DO THE SAME THING.

YOU CAN EITHER START AND

BRING DOWN A CURSE ON

YOURSELF, OR YOU CAN COULD

BRING BLESSING BY THE WORD

OF YOUR MOUTH.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

IT'S A FUNDAMENTAL

PRINCIPLE.

AND I HAVEN'T GOT TIME TO GO

INTO IT IN GREAT LENGTHS,

BUT I HAVE A BOOK CALLED5"QI)Q SECRET KINGDOM" THAT

GOES INTO THESE MATTERS,

THAT SEEMS TO HAVE CHANGED A

NUMBER OF PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Terry: WELL, COMING UP,

THE CY YOUNG WINNER WHO

NEARLY COMMITTED SUICIDE.

I WAS BEHIND THE WHEEL OF

A CAR.

AND I WAS ABOUT TO END IT

ALL.

Terry: HEAR WHAT SAVED

R. H. DICKIE'S LIFE, NEXT.

*

Pat: THE SONG I USED TO

SING, "TAKE ME OUT TO THE

BALLPARK," BUT FOR SPORTS

FANS, BASEBALL'S OPENING DAY

HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS

CHRISTMAS, EXCEPT WARMER.

YESTERDAY BASEBALL'S ELITE

RANG IN THE SEASON,

INCLUDING TORONTO BLUE JAYS'

R.H. DICKIE.

HE HAS HAD A CAREER LIKE NO

OTHER.

AND HIS LIFE HAS FOLLOWED

THE SAME PATH.

Reporter: THE TORONTO

BLUE JAYS' R.A. DICKIE

STANDS ALONE.

HE IS BASEBALL'S ONLY

PITCHER DARING ENOUGH TO

THROW

THE UNPREDICTABLE

KNUCKLE BALL.

WHEN IT LEAVES YOUR HAND,

IT IS GOING TO DO WHAT IT

WILL DO.

IT MAY BREAK AND CURVE THREE

OR FOUR DIFFERENT WAYS

BEFORE IT GETS TO THE

CATCHER'S NET.

Reporter: HIS CAREER

WAS MOSTLY SPENT IN THE

MINOR LEAGUES.

IN 2006 WITH AN AGING ARM

AND AT THE URGING OF HIS

PITCHING COACH, HE PICKED UP

THE KNUCKLER.

YOUR WHOLE LIFE IS A

CONVENTIONAL PITCHER.

YOU'RE TAUGHT TO IMPART A

CERTAIN TYPE OF SPIN ON TO

THE BASEBALL TO CREATE A

BREAK.

THE KNUCKLE BALL IS ANTI

ANTITHEORETICAL TO.

IT IS A DIFFERENT HAND

POSITION AND A DIFFERENT

RELEASE POINT.

AND IT WAS DIFFICULT.

Reporter: R.A. SPENT

THE NEXT FOUR YEARS WITH

FOUR DAIFOR DIFFERENT TEAMS

AND THREE STOPS, THE LONGEST

HERE IN NASHVILLE, WHERE HE

SURRENDERED 25 YEARS OF

PREVIOUS TRAINING, HONING

THE NEW PITCH.

WHILE WORKING ON HIS KNUCKLE

BALL, HIS LIFE WAS SPINNING

IN TURMOIL.

RUNNING FROM A PAST THAT

WAS VERY PAINFUL TO DEAL

WITH AND VERY SECRET.

WHEN I WAS SEXUAL ABUSED AT

EIGHT YEARS OLD, I DIDN'T

TRUST ANOTHER HUMAN BEING,

MUCH LESS A CARING GOD.

WHEN YOU GO THROUGH ABUSE,

HANDICAPS YOU IN THAT

MOMENT.

MY GROWTH WAS STUNTED TRYING

TO CONTROL THAT AS MUCH AS

POSSIBLE.

I GOT TO THE PLACE WHERE I

CAME TO THE END OF MYSELF.

I WAS BEHIND THE THE

WHEEL OF A CAR AND I WAS

ABOUT TO END IT ALL.

I FELT GOD SAY, THIS IS NOT

HOW IT IS MEANT TO BE TO

YOU.

I WAS ABLE NOT TO TURN THE

)CV AND SOUGHT HELP THE NEXT

DAY.

AND IT ALLOWED ME TO GO INTO

PLACES, DARK PLACES, THAT I

HAD NEVER DARED VENTURE

BEFORE.

Reporter: IT TOOK R.A.

A YEAR AND A HALF WITH A

THERAPIST BEFORE OPENING HIS

DEEPEST WOUNDS.

AS YOU GROW UP WITH THOSE

DYSFUNCTIONAL TRAITS, THEY

BECOME TOCK TOXIC.

I HAD TO RELEARN AND GO BACK

AND CONFRONT THAT BOY AGAIN

AND LEARN HOW TO DO LIFE

DIFFERENTLY.

I STARTED TO LEARN HOW TO DO

RELATIONSHIP DIFFERENTLY.

Reporter: WAS IT ABOUT

REGAINING TRUST?

IT WAS ABOUT ESTABLISH

TRUST.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

HELPS ME TO DO THAT IN A

MOMENT IS THE FOUNDATION OF

A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

DESPITE THE TRAGEDY, DESPITE

APPALLING THINGS THAT

HAPPENED IN MY

I FEEL

LIKE WHEN I CAME TO KNOW

CHRIST MORE INTIMATELY, I

HAD A REAL PURPOSE.

Reporter: HE AGREED TO

A CONTRACT WITH THE NEW YORK

METS.

IT WAS THERE THAT HIS NEW

GRIP GRABBED HOLD OF

OPPORTUNITY, COMING OFF HIS

MOST PROMISING MAJOR LEAGUE

SEASON, HE REINVENTED HIS

CAREER.

I STARTED TO DISASSOCIATE

MYSELF WITH THE IDENTITY OF

BEING A PROFESSIONAL

BASEBALL PLAYER, AND STARTED

TO CONCENTRATE ON HOW I

COULD BE A MORE COMPLETE

HUMAN BEING.

MY KNUCKLE BALL STARTED TO

GRADUATE TO DIFFERENT

PLACES.

Reporter: IN 2012, THE

37-YEAR-OLD BECAME THE FIRST

KNUCKLE BALLER IN BASEBALL

HISTORY TO WIN A CY YOUNG

AWARD.

BEFORE THE SEASON, HE

AUTHORED A BOOK, DISCLOSING

HIS ABUSE AND MISTRUST,

USING PQ KNUCKLE BALL TO

TELL US.

THAT HAS KIND OF BEEN A

REAL INTERESTING METAPHOR,

YOU KNOW, FOR MY JOURNEY.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN, YOU KNOW,

ONE DIRECTION, UP, DOWN,

SIDEWAYS.

I'VE BEEN LIKE THE

TRAJECTORY OF A KNUCKLE

BALL.

YOU DON'T ALWAYS HAVE A SAY

IN WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR

LIFE, YOU KNOW.

Reporter: INCLUDING HIS

CAREER MOVES.

HIS VALUES SKYROCKETED.

HE WAS TRADED TO TORONTO.

THE ACE OF THE BLUEJAYS'

STAFF IS LEARNING THE

DISCIPLINE OF SURRENDER.

I HAVE TO BE ALL IN SO

MUCH THAT WHATEVER HAPPENS,

YOU'RE OKAY WITH IT.

WHEN IT LEAVES YOUR HAND,

YOU HAVE TO LET IT GO.

I THINK THE WORD "SURRENDER"

IS AN ACTIVE VERB.

YOU HAVE TO BE INTENTIONAL

ABOUT DOING IT.

IF@5 INVEST IN THE PROCESS

OF DOING A RELATIONSHIP WELL

WITH A LIVING GOD, I HAVE TO

SURRENDER THE OUTCOME OF

WHAT IT IS GOING TO BE.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT

JUST HAPPENS NATURALLY.

IT IS AGAINST MY HUMAN

NATURE TO GIVE OVER WHAT I

WANT TO CONTROL.

IT TAKES PRACTICE.

Reporter: THAT PRACTICE

HAS BROUGHT HEALING AND

PERSPECTIVE.

I'M ABLE TO LOOK BACK AND

SAY, WELL, YOU HAD A SPEQIAL

PLAN PLANNED OUT FOR ME, AND

I GET IT.

AND I WANT HIM TO FIX IT.

AND HE DOESN'T NECESSARILY

FIX IT ON MY TIMING.

GOD HAS GIVEN ME A JOURNEY.

IT IS SO CLEAR BECAUSE OF

ALL OF THE SIMILARITIES

BETWEEN THE ACTUAL PITCH I

THROW AND MY WALK AS A HUMAN

BEING AND A CHRISTIAN.

Reporter: R.A. DICKIE,

THE KNUCKLE BALL SPECIALIST

IS THAN THANKFUL FOR THE

LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST.

LET YOUR EXPECTATION BE

THAT GOD WANTS TO LOVE YOU

WHERE YOU ARE, WHEREVER THAT

IS, IN YOUR BROKENNESS.

HE WANTS TO BE THERE WITH

YOU IN THAT MOMENT.

HOW CAN I GROW AS A HUMAN

BEING INTO WHO HE HAS CALLED

ME AUTHENTICLY TO BE?

GOD IS IN CONTROL OF MY

LIFE, AND I'M THANKFUL FOR

IT.

Pat: WHAT A TESTIMONY.

AND HOW CAN I BE THE PERSON

GOD InTP'DED ME TO BE?

WHAT HE HAS MADE ME TO DO --

THIS WHOLE PROGRAM TODAY IS

LIKE WE'RE FOCUSING IN ON

WHO YOU ARE, AND WHO WE ARE,

AND WHO WE ARE IN GOD.

GOD HAS MADE EVERY ONE OF

US, AND WHAT IS OUR

DESTINY?

WHAT IS THE DESTINY?

AND R.A. DICKIE FOUND THAT

DESTINY NOT IN BASEBALL, BUT

IN JESUS CHRIST.

IF YOU WANT SOME MORE HELP

ON THIS, WE'VE GOT

TELEPHONES YOU CAN CALL

DURING THE PROGRAM.

PEOPLE ARE HERE.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

NO FINANCES INVOLVED

WHATSOEVER.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

YOU CAN CALL IN.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU.

AND JUST PICK UP THE PHONE.

CALL IN.

AND THERE IS THE NUMBER ON

YOUR SCREEN.

DID I SAY IT RIGHT.

Terry: 1-800-759-0700.

Pat: I HAD IT TURNED UP

SIDE DOWN.

1-800-759-0700.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, I WANT

TO MEET JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: THAT WAS A VERY

POWERFUL TESTIMONY.

STILL AHEAD, THE FIGHTER

PILOT WHO CRASHED IN THE

MIDDLE OF A CROWDED

NEIGHBORHOOD AND THEN WALKED

AWAY UNHURT.

YOU WON'T WANT TO MISTHIS

ONE.

BUT, FIRST, TIME FOR AN

E-MAIL EXTRAVAGANZA.

PAM SAYS, "I'M SELF-EMPLOYED

AND I DON'T WANT TO SIGN UP

FOR OBAMACARE.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

WE'LL BRING IT ON WITH THAT

QUESTION AND MORE RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

AIR FORCE CADETS CAN

SAY, "SO HELP ME GOD,"

THAT'S THE MESSAGE THAT

RELIGIOUS ADVOCATES ARE

SENDING TO THE CADETS.

THE RESTORE MILITARY

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM COALITION,

PUT THE BILLBOARD NOT FAR

FROM AN ACADEMY INTEREST.

LAST FALL THE CADETS

RECEIVED NEW HANDBOOKS THAT

REMOVED THE PHRASE FROM THEp2

OATH OF OFFICE.

AFTER MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

INTERVENED, THE ACADEMY@]%*j4(P&Cú

IT WAS D PRINTING ERROR, ANDp6

CADETS HAVE THE OPTION TO

SAY THE WORDS.

GAY MARRIAGE IS NOW LEGAL IN

PARTS OF THE UNITED

KINGDOM.

SCOTLAND PLANS TO ALLOW GAY

MARRIAGES COME OCTOBER.

BUT NORTHERN IRELAND HAS NO

PLANS TO DO THE SAME.

AND ALTHOUGH THE NEW LAW

RECOGNIZES SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, MANY RELEGITIMATES

GROUPS DO NOT.

RELIGIOUS GROUPS FROM THEp2

CHURCH OF IN ENGLAND ARE

FORBIDDEN TO TAKE PART IN

GAY MARRIAGES.

REMEMBER, 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.

Pat: REGENT UNIVERSITY,

THE WORLD'S PREEMINENT

CHRISTIAN GRADUATE

UNIVERSITY.

WE HAVE GRADUATE PROGRAMS

AND IN A NUMBER OF

DISCIPLINES, PLUS A

MARVELOUS UNDERGRADUATE

PROGRAM.

PLUS A RESIDENTIAL CAMPUS

AND ONLINE.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SIGN IT,

WHETHER IT IS LAW OR WHETHER

IT IS BUSINESS OR TEACHING

OR THEATER ARTS -- IT GOES

ON AND ON.

GOVERNMENT -- TREMENDOUS

PROGRAMS, ALL AVAILABLE ON

CAMPUS OR ONLINE.

YOU SEE ON YOUR SCREEN THE

ADDRESS.

WWW.REGENT.EDU.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SIGN UP

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A

COLLEGE.

Terry: WANT TO DO SOME

E-MAIL?

Pat: I GUESS I BETTER.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

"BRING IT ON."

THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM PAM,

PAT, AND SHE SAYS "I AM A

SELF-EMPLOYED 50-YEAR-OLD

WOMAN AND I DON'T WANT TO

SIGN UP FOR OBAMACARE.

I DON'T WANT TO PUT ALL OF

MY INFORMATION ON THE

INTERNET BECAUSE I'M WORRIED

ABOUT WHAT THE GOVERNMENT

WILL DO WITH THAT

INFORMATION.

I WANT INSURANCE.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: PAM, THEY HAVE

REALLY PUT IT TO PEOPLE LIKE

YOU BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT

IS REQUIRING DOCTORS TO PUT

THEIR VARIOUS RECORDS

ELECTRONICALLY, AS OPPOSED

TO ON PAPER.

AND THEN THEY WILL, IN TURN,

PROBABLY BE MADE AVAILABLE

ON THE INTERNET.

IT'S TERRIBLE TO THINK WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

THIS BUREAUCRATS ARE KILLING

PEOPLE.

BUT THERE ARE WAYS OUT.

YOU NEED TO -- THERE IS A

NUMBER YOU CAN CALL, IT'S

1-800-318-2596, AND YOU CAN

GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT

WHAT YOU CAN DO.

BUT YOU CAN ALSO FILL OUT A

PAPER APPLICATION.

AND WHEN YOU DO, IT DOESN'T

QUITE GET SUCKED INTO THE

ELECTRONIC MALL AS QUICK.

I'M SURE YOU CAN FIND A

PRIVATE INSUROR THAT ISN'T

ASSOCIATED WITH OBAMACARE.

THIS THING IS A DISASTER.

I WANT TO TELL EVERYBODY, IT

IS A DISASTER.

THEY HAVE DISRUPTED THE

ENTIRE HEALTH CARE DELIVERY

SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA.

AND THEY'RE GETTING, IN

EXCHANGE FOR THAT TWO OR

THREE MILLION UNINSURED

PEOPLE THAT ARE SIGNING UP,

THOSE WHO DIDN'T HAVE

INSURANCE BEFORE, AND THERE

ARE MILLIONS AND HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

AT RISK.

IT IS A HORRIBLE THING.

AND HOPEFULLY THERE WILL BE

A SHIFT IN THE SENATE, AND

THE CONGRESS WILL BE ABLE TO

OVERRIDE A PRESIDENTIAL VETO

AND GET THAT THING MODIFIED

DRAMATICALLY OR REPEALED.

Terry: THIS IS KATHRYN

WHO SAYS, "YI TOLD THI WAS

TOLD THE BIBLE WASN'T EVEN

WRITTEN UNTIL 200 YEARS

AFTER CHRIST WAS BORN.

DIDN'T THE APOSTLES START

RIGHT AWAY WITH THEIR

WRITINGS?"

Pat: THEY CERTAINLY

DID.

WE DON'T HAVE THE SO-CALLED

AUTOGRAPHS OR THE EXACT

LETTERS THAT WERE WRITTEN BY

PAUL OR PETER.

WE DON'T HAVE THE EXACT

GOSPELS THAT WERE WRITTEN BY

JOHN, ETC.

BUT WHAT WE DO HAVE ARE VERY

CLOSE COPIES OF ALMOST

EVERYTHING, AND THEY GO WAY

BACK.

YOU'RE RIGHT, ABOUT 200

YEARS.

BUT THEY BEGAN COLLECTLY

THEM BEFORE THATCOLLECTING

THEM BEFORE.

AND YOU'VE GOT DISCIPLES WHO

WROTE ABOUT WHAT THE

APOSTLES HAD SAID.

SO IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET

IT, BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THAT

WE WRITING, BUT MOSTLY THEY

WERE TALKING BECAUSE THE

HEBREWS WERE GREAT ON

SPEECH.

AND THERE WAS INCREDIBLE

MEMORY.

AND LATER ON THEY WROTE

THESE THINGS DOWN.

NOW WE'VE GOT TO WRITE

EVERYTHING DOWN TO REMEMBER,

BUT THEY DIDN'T IN THOSE

DAYS.

THEY HAD AN ORAL TRADITION.

AND SO WE'RE FACED WITH AN

ORAL TRADITION, WHICH WAS

SOME NOTES TAKEN BY GUYS

LIKE LUKE AND OTHERS.

BUT IT'S INSPIRED BY GOD.

THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS IN

CHARGE ALL THE WAY THROUGH.

Terry: PAT, THIS IS TIM

WHO SAYS, "I'M WICKEN.

DOES THAT MEAN BY YOUR

CHRISTIAN BELIEFS THAT YOU

THINK I'M GOING TO HELL.

I'M A GOOD PERSON AND I

ALWAYS TRY TO HELP PEOPLE

WHEN THEY NEED IT.

I'M WONDERING WHAT YOU

THINK."

Pat: I'VE GOT TO BE

LOVING TO YOU.

BEING A GOOD PERSON AND

HELPING PEOPLE, WHEN YOU GET

TO THE END OF THE ROAD AND

STAND AT THE PEARLIE GATES,

GOD IS GOING TO SAY YOU'RE

ONE OF THE NICEST PEOPLE

I'VE EVER HAD TO SEND AWAY

FROM HERE BECAUSE THAT

DOESN'T CUT IT.

ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME

SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO

SALVATION, AND THAT IS

THROUGH JESUS, WHO PAID THE

PRICE FOR YOUR SINS.

I MIGHT ALSO SAY THAT WHITE

WITCHCRAFT OR BLACK

WITCHCRAFT IS SINFUL.

IT IS CONSIDERED IN THE

BIBLE A SIN.

AND WE'RE FORBIDDEN TO DEAL

WITH THOSE WHO ARE WITCHES.

THOSE WHO DEAL IN OCCULT

ARTS, THE BIBLE IS VERY

EXPRESSIVE SIEVE ABOU ABOUT

THAT.

WHY WOULD PEOPLE NOT TURN TO

THE LIVING GOD?

THERE ARE TWO STRIKES ON

YOU.

AND I KNOW YOU'RE SINCERE

AND YOU WEREN'T T WANT TO

DO SOMETHING.

GET A COPY OF THE BIBLE AND

SAID, GOD, I WANT TO KNOW

WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO.

Terry: ONE LAST

QUESTION, I GOT MY SON WHEN

HE WAS 22 MONTHS OLD AND HE

IS NOT CIRCUMCISED.

SHOULD WE GET OUR SON

CIRCUMCISED?

Pat: CIRCUMCISION WAS A

COVENANT BETWEEN GOD AND

ABRAHAM.

FROM A HEALTH STANDPOINT

CIRCUMCISION IS MUCH

BETTER.

THERE IS A CERVICAL CANCER

THAT IS CAUSED BY SEXUAL

RELATIONSHIPS FROM THOSE WHO

HAVEN'T BEEN CIRCUMCISED.

YOU'RE NOT JEWISH, AND I

DON'T THINK THAT THE BIBLE

SAYS YOU'VE GOT TO BE

CIRCUMCISED, BUT IT WAS A

SIGN OF THE

MADE WITH ABRAHAM AND THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

Terry: I THINK THAT'S A

GOOD ANSWER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS.

STILL AHEAD, MARK HARDING

HASTENED MORE THAN 30 YEARS

AS A FIGHTER PILOT, BUT HE

NEVER CRASHED UNTIL AFTER HE

LEFT THE MILITARY.

YOU KNOW, YOU HEAR A LOT

OF PEOPLE THAT SAY, GOD IS

MY CO-PILOT.

THAT IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG.

GOD IS MY PILOT.

HE GIVES ME THE SKILLS TO

FLY.

HE WAS ALWAYS PRESENT IN MY

COCKPIT.

Terry: HEAR HOW MARK'S

PILOT SAVED HIS LIFE WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Terry: WELL, IT HAS(

SAID BY MANY A PILOT

THAT FLYING IS THE SECOND

THRILL ON EARTH.

LANDING IS THE FIRST.

MARK HARDING KNOWS FROM

EXPERIENCE.

BECAUSE WHEN HIS PLANE

STARTED LOSING ALTITUDE OVER

HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS, ANY

LANDING WOULD DO.

30 YEARS OF FLYING SINGLE

FLIERS ALL OVER THE WORLD,

NEVER HAVING TO SHOOT

ANYBODY, AND I'M ALIVE AND

I'M DOING WELL.

I NEVER HAD TO EJECT OUT OF

AN AIRPLANE.

I HAD PARTS AND PIECES FALL

OFF OF AN AIRPLANE, BUT THEY

TRAIN US WELL.

TO BE ABLE TO LAND AN

AIRPLANE WITHOUT AN ENGINE

ON A RUNWAY, YOU'RE READY.

Reporter: MARK HARDING

AND HIS WIFE ATTRIBUTE HIS

YEARS OF SAFETY WHILE FLYING

FIGHTER JETS IN THE AIR

FORCE TO TWO THINGS: HIS

MILITARY TRAINING AND GOD'S

HAND OF PROTECTION.

I CAN SAY I WAS NEVER

AFRAID.

I WAS IN CONSTANT

COMMUNICATION WITH GOD WHEN

HE WAS UP IN THE AIR.

SAYING, ALL RIGHT, YOU'RE

WITH HIM NOW.

I DON'T HAVE TO THINK ABOUT

THAT OR WORRY ABOUT THAT.

YOU HEAR A LOT OF PEOPLE

SAY, GOD'S MY CO-PILOT.

THAT'S ABSOLUTELY WRONG.

GOD IS MY PILOT.

HE GIVES ME THE SKILLS TO

FLY.

HE WAS ALWAYS PRESENT IN MY

COCKPIT.

Reporter: MARK RETIRED

FROM THE AIR FORCE IN 2011,

BUT HE HAD A HARD TIME

STAYING OUT OF THE COCKPIT.

HE TRAINED TO BECOME AN

AERIAL FIREFIGHTER, FLYING A

MODIFIED CROP DUSTER.

IT WAS VERY EXCITING.

I WAS VERY PROUD OF HIM.

VERY HAPPY TO BECOME THE

WIFE OF AN AIRBORNE

FIREFIGHTER.

I THINK IT WAS THE SECOND

LIVE DROP THAT I DID, WHERE

I MISDROPPED WHERE THE AIR

ATTACK WANTED ME TO DROP.

I WAS A LITTLE BIT LATE.

THREE DAYS LATER, I FOUND

OUT IT WAS A LATE DROP OUGHT

ALL.

IT WAS BASICALLY GOD'S DROP,

WHERE THERE WAS A FIREMAN IN

A BULLDOZER WHO WAS TRAPPED

AND WHO LOST HIS RADIOS AND

THINGS, AND BECAUSE OF ALL

OF THE SMOKE OF THE FIRE, HE

DIDN'T KNOW IT.

AND I HIT HIM RIGHT ON THE

HEAD AND HE SAW WHAT HE

NEEDED TO DO AND BACKED

OUT.

THAT'S WHEN I WENT, I'M

RIGHT WHERE GOD NEEDS ME TO

BE.

Reporter: IN THE SUMMER

OF 2011, MARK'S FLIGHT GROUP K3

WAS CALLED TO FIGHT FIRES IN

ARKANSAS.

AFTER SEVERAL LONG DAYS OF

SUCCESSFUL DROPS, MARK TOOK

OFF AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME

SOMETHING WENT VERY WRONG.

I'M CLIMBING UP, AND THE

TREES ARE DISAPPEARING BELOW

THE CANOPY.

I'M LOOKING FOR TRAFFIC

LEFT, RIGHT, GOING TO START

MY TURN HERE IN A LITTLE

BIT, AND THAT'S WHEN THE

WORLD CHANGED.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE AIRPLANE

DROPS, AND I LOST ABOUT

75 FEET OF ALTITUDE.

INSTEAD OF HAVING A CLEAR

COCKPIT NOW, IT'S FULL OF

TREES.

Reporter: MARK DUMPED

THE WATER IN HOPES THE

LIGHTER PLANE WOULD RESPOND

AND RISE UP.

IT DIDN'T.

I KNOW I'M OVER A TOWN.

THE HOUSES ARE GOING UNDER

ME.

THERE IS NO WAY THIS

AIRPLANE IS GOING TO

OUTCLIMB THIS.

Reporter: MARK LOOKED

FOR A PLACE TO CRASH A

PLANE.

HE SAW A SMALL BACKYARD, BUT

KNEW IT WOULD TAKE A MIRACLE

TO AVOID HITTING HOUSES AND

HURTING PEOPLE ON THE

GROUND.

I KNEW I WAS GOING TO

HAVE TO CRASH.

I WAS GOING TO HAVE TO PUT

THE AIRPLANE NOSE IN AND NOT

TAKE ANOTHER HOUSE OUT.

I'M DOING 80 MILES AN HOUR.

IT IS NOT LIKE THIS THING

JUST STOPS.

IT IS GOING TO TAKE A

THOUSAND FEET TO STOP THIS

ON A RUNWAY, LET ALONE

SOMEONE'S YARD.

Reporter: HE CRASHED

HARD, DESTROYING THE PLANE.

I HIT THE SIDE OF THE

AIRPLANE WHERE THE ROLL BARS

WERE, AND NOW I'M BLACKED

OUT.

I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING BECAUSE

I'M TAKING PART OF THE

BACKYARD OUT.

I'M SLIDING, AND I DON'T

KNOW WHERE, WHATEVER.

THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN IT JUST

STOPPED.

Reporter: HE THREW OPEN

THE DOOR AND GOT OUT OF THE

PLANE UNHURT.

THE WATER AND FOAM PREVENTED

ANY FIRE FROM STARTING.

RESCUERS ARRIVED NM

TRANSPORTED HIM TO THE

HOSPITAL

.

MEANWHILE, COLLEEN GOT A

CALL THAT MARK HAD CRASHED.

WHEN I HEARD THE WORDS,

THERE HAS BEEN A CRASH, MARK

HAS CRASHED, I'D BE LYING IF

I SAID THAT I DIDN'T THINK,

WELL, HE'S DEAD.

BUT I FELT LIKE SUCH A PEACE

WASHING OVER ME.

IN A MOMENT, YOU'RE LIFE

CHANGES.

BUT IN THAT INSTANT, GOD HAS

HOLD OF YOU.

HE HAD HOLD OF ME.

I KNOW THE ANGELS WERE

AROUND ME, AND THEY DID A

FANTASTIC JOB TO GET ME TO

THAT LAST PLACE.

WHEN I WENT BACK A COUPLE OF

DAYS LATER, ABOUT THREE DAYS

LATER, I LOOKED AT THE SITE

AND I'M STANDING IN THE

STREET J} CRYING.

I'M GOING, HOW DID YOU GET

THAT AIRPLANE, WITH OTHER

TREE OFF TO THE SIDE, IN

THAT BACKYARD.

GOD'S GOING TO GET THE GLORY

ON THIS ONE.

BECAUSE I DID MY PART, BUT I

COULDN'T PUT THAT AIRPLANE

BACK IN THAT HOLE.

I COULDN'T.

WHEN I SAT THERE AND I

LOOKED AT THAT SPOT, I GO,

MARK, YOU'RE NOT THAT GOOD.

I'M GOOD, BUT I'M NOT THAT

GOOD.

GOD WAS TOTALLY INVOLVED IN

WHAT WAS GOING ON.

HE WAS THE PILOT IN THAT

WANTED ME TO PUT IT.

MY JOB WAS JUST TO DO ALL OF

THE THINGS I LEARNED IN THE

MILITARY.

FLY THE AIRPLANE, MARK, AND

TRUST GOD TO HELP YOU DO

IT.

Reporter: THE REASON

THE PLANE SUDDENLY LOST

ALTITUDE IS STILL UNDER

INVESTIGATION.

MARK AND COLLEEN SAY THEY

ARE GRATEFUL FOR GOD'S

FAITHFUL LOVE AND PROTECTION

THROUGH IT ALL.

WE'RE FOREVER IN AWE OF

HOW HE HAS WORKED IN OUR

LIVES, AND EXCITED ABOUT

BECAUSE IF YOU CAN SURVIVE A

PLANE CRASH LIKE MARK DID,

THEN GOD HAS SOMETHING EVEN

GREATER FOR US.

TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO

LIVE ON THIS EARTH, TO

IMPACT LIVES FOR GOD, IS A

BLESSING.

BUT TO KNOW THAT HE IS THAT

MERCIFUL AND THAT GRACIOUS

AND THAT ;H&OVING THAT HE

WOULD SACRIFICE HIS SON FOR

SOMEBODY LIKE ME, IT BLOWS

ME AWAY.

SO WHILE I'M ON HIS EARTH,

WHAT CAN I DO FOR GOD?

BECAUSE WHAT HE HAS GIVEN

ME, LIFE IS TOO BEAUTIFUL

AND TOO SHORT NOT TO DO

THAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT LIFE WOULD

BE LIKE WITHOUT GOD.

I'M SO BLESSED THAT HE IS

THE FOCAL POINT OF MY LIFE.

Terry: ONCE GOD TOUCHES

YOUR LIFE LIKE THAT, YOU

DON'T FORGET IT.

YOU WANT TO LIVE FOR HH].

IT'S AN AMAZING STORY.

Pat: IT IS JUST

REMARKABLE.

OKAY, LET'S PRAY FOR SOME

PEOPLE.

Terry: THIS IS IRMA WHO

LIVES IN GEORGIA.

SHE SUFFERED WITH TERRIBLE

PAIN IN HIS RIGHT KNEE.

AND THE DOCTOR TOLD HER ALL

CARTILAGE IN HER KNEE WAS

GONE.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND PAT, YOU

HAD THIS WORD OF KNOWLEDGE,

"A KNEE IS BEING HEALED,"

THAT'S ALL YOU SAID.

AND SHE GOT UP AND WALKED

OUTSIDE AND SHE HAS BEEN

PAIN-FREE SINCE THAT DAY.

Pat: IT'S THAT A

MIRACLE.

WYNN OF LONG VIEW, TEXAS,

DEVELOPED BLISTERS ON HER

TONGUE AND THEY STARTED

SPREADING TO HER MOUTH AND

GUMS.

THE DOCTOR COULD NOT FIGURE

OUT THE CAUSE.

SHE WAS IN MUCH PAIN.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THISúP[OGRAM, AND MY

CO-HOSTESS, TERRY HAD A

WORD, QUOTE,"YOU HAVE

PAINFUL LESIONS ALL OVER

YOUR TONGUE, INSIDE YOUR

MOUTH."

AND WYNN CLAIMED THAT WORD

AND ALL OF THE BLISTERS WENT

AWAY AND NEVER RETURNED.

SHE IS COMPLETELY HEALED.

FOLKS, LET'S PRAY FOR YOU.

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

IS IT A FAMILY PROBLEM?

IS IT SICKNESS?

I HAVE A PRAYER REQUEST FROM

A DEAR PERSON WHO WORKS AT

CBN AND "OPERATION

BLESSING."

PREGNANCY, PREECLAMPSIA, AND

NEED HEALING.

WE SPEAK THE WORD OF FAITH

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, BE MADE WHOLE.

AND MAY THERE BE A

SUCCESSFUL DELIVERY OF THISBABY IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE A CHRONIC,

ALMOST LIKE A LOW ARE

LOW-GRADE INFECTION, AND

SWEL SWOLLEN GLANDS THAT

JUST WON'T GO AWAY, AND GOD

IS HEALING YOU NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

Pat: A RIGHT KNEE HAS

JUST BEEN HEALED.

YOU HAVE BEEN LOADED WITH

ARTHRITIS.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR KNEE,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE PAIN

IS GONE AND YOUR HEALED IN

JESUS' NAME.

Terry: AND THE SAME

WITH ARTHRITIS IN YOUR

HANDS.

STRETCH YOUR HANDS OUT AS

GOD RELEASES THAT FROM YOU

AND YOUR HANDS ARE HEALED.

Pat: YOU'RE NECK WAS

WRENCHED, A WHIPLASH, AND IT

JERKED YOUR NECK, AND YOU'VE
