An addiction to pornography escalates to an extramarital affair and a marriage is pushed to the brink. Plus, prayer yields miraculous results to the life threatening medical conditions affecting Carol's baby, Sandra. Read Transcript

A BIBLE CLUB IN A PUBLIC

SCHOOL.

SCHOOLS ACROSS AMERICA

HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE BIBLE

CLUBS.

IT IS LEGAL, AND GAINING

SOME UNLIKELY SUPPORT.

UP YOUR NOSE WITH A

RUBBER HOSE, I'M GOING TO

PRAY.

IT IS BETRAYAL.

IT IS HEARTBREAKING.

Wendy: A HUSBAND WITH A

SECRET ADDICTION, GETS

CAUGHT RED-HANDED.

I JUST ASKED HIM, ARE YOU

HAVING AN AFFAIR, AND HE

SAID YES.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THE CRISIS IN UKRAINE MAY BE

FADING FROM THE HEADLINES,

BUT IT IS FAR FROM OVER.

AND SOME MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

SAY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

HAS BEEN FAR TOO WEAK IN ITS

RESPONSE TO VLADIMIR PUTIN.

Wendy: OTHER

INTERNATIONAL LEADERS WORRY

THAT RUSSIA MAY SOON INVADE

EASTERN UKRAINE.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS MORE ON

THIS PERILLESS SITUATION.

Tom: THIS MAP SHOWS THE

EXTENT OF THE PRO-RUSSIAN

DEMONSTRATIONS, AND THEY ARE

SPREADING ACROSS EASTERN

UKRAINE.

THE UNITED STATES IS

ACCUSING RUSSIA OF FUELING

THE PROTESTS TO JUSTIFY A

POSSIBLE MILITARY

INTERVENTION.

IT IS CLEAR THAT RUSSIAN

SPECIAL FORCES AND AGENTS

HAVE BEEN THE CATALYST

BEHIND THE CHAOS.

Tom: TENS OF THOUSANDS

OF RUSSIAN TROOPS ARE LESS

THAN 20 MILES FROM THE

BORDER.

NATO SAYS ANY INTERVENTION

WOULD BE AN HISTORIC

MISTAKE.

ONE TOP NATO GENERAL

PREDICTS IT WOULD TAKE THE

RUSSIANS THREE TO FIVE DAYS

TO CARRY OUT AN INVASION.

MEANWHILE, HUNDREDS OF

MASKED MEN WITH METAL RODS

AND MOLOTOV COCKTAILS REMAIN

IN FULL CONTROL OF THE MAIN

GOVERNMENT BUILDING IN

DONESK.

THE NEXT STEP IS WE'RE

GOING TO ANNOUNCE A

REFERENDUM THAT IS GOING TO

TAKE PLACE BETWEEN NOW, AND

AT THE LATEST, MAY 11th.

Tom: LIKE CRIMEA, THE

SOUTH AND EASTERN PARTS OF

UKRAINE HOLD A SIGNIFICANT

MAJORITY OF ETHNIC

RUSSIANS.

MANY WOULD LIKE NOTHING

BETTER THAN TO BE PART OF

RUSSIA'S ORBIT.

RUSSIA IS CONSIDERING

PASSING A LAW THAT WOULD

MAKE IT EASIER FOR RUSSIAN

FOREIGNORS LIVING INFORMER

RUSSIA TO GET RUSSIAN

CITIZENSHIP.

THE U.S. SAYS ADDITIONAL

SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA'S

ENERGY, BANKING, AND MINING

SECTORS COULD BE NEXT IF

MOSCOW DOES NOT BACK DOWN.

SOME LAWMAKERS, INCLUDING

ARIZONA SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN,

WANTS WASHINGTON TO SEND

MILITARY AID TO EURIC.

McCAIN WROTE: "BY

WITHHOLDING MILITARY

ASSISTANCE, THE

ADMINISTRATION MAY THINK IT

IS REDUCING THE RISK OF

FURTHER CONFLICT.

IN FACT, THE OPPOSITE MAY BE

TRUE.

THE DECISION WILL APPEAR TO

PUTIN AS YET ANOTHER SIGN OF

WEAKNESS, WHICH MAY INVITE

FURTHER AGGRESSION."

MEANWHILE, LAWMAKERS IN

UKRAINE'S WEAK TRANSITIONAL

GOVERNMENT ARE STRUGGLING TO

COPE WITH THE UNFOLDING

CRISIS.

THEY BROKE OUT INTO VIOLENT

FIST FIGHTS LATE TUESDAY AS

MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT WERE

DEBATESING HOW TO DEAL WITH

THE RUSSIAN THREAT.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS ALL PLAYING

INTO PUTIN'S HANDS.

WE'RE JUST SHOWING

WEAKNESS.

IT IS TERRIBLE.

THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON

EARTH HAS LEADERSHIP THAT IS

JUST WEAK.

WE SAW IN THE NEWS TODAY

ANOTHER SHOCKING

DEVELOPMENT.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

DECIDED TO CUT BACK ON TWO

LEGS OF OUR NUCLEAR TRIAD.

WE HAVE LAND-BASED MISSILES,

WHICH ARE IN SILOS AND ARE

RELATIVELY VULNERABLE.

AND THEN WE HAVE AIRBORNE

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

AND WE ALSO HAVE SEA-BASED

WEAPONS.

THE THOUGHT WOULD BE WE'RE

GOING TO REDUCE THE AIRBORNE

AND ALSO SE SEABORNE.

HOW IS THAT TELLING PUTIN

WE'RE GOING TO BE STRONG?

WHAT ARE WE GOING ABOUT IT?

PEOPLE SAY, WHAT'S THE

ANSWER?

WE COULD PUT A CHOKE-HOLD ON

HIS ECONOMY IN A MATTER OF

DAYS IF WE TRIED TO DO IT,

BUT WE'RE NOT DOING IT.

AND I'VE ALSO SAID, AND I

SAY AGAIN, WE'VE GOT TO BE

CAREFUL WITH OUR RHETORIC.

BECAUSE IF WE JUST GO

BLOWING OUR HORN, IT MAY BE

A PROVOCATION SEVERE ENOUGH

SO HE'LL DECIDE HE WANTS TO

GO NUCLEAR, AND HE'S GOT

QUITE AN ARSENAL.

SO WE'RE IN A BIND WITH A

LEADERSHIP THAT JUST DOESN'T

UNDERSTAND THE MAGNITUDE OF

THESE THINGS.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

PUT A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER IN

CHARGE OF THE GREATEST

NATION ON EARTH.

NO EXPERIENCE IN FOREIGN

POLICY.

NO EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS.

NO EXPERIENCE IN RUNNING A

LARGE BUREAUCRACY, AND ALL

HE KNOWS HOW TO DO IS

ORGANIZE PROTESTS.

AND HE'S GOOD AT THAT.

AND HE IS ALSO GOOD AT

SPEAKING.

AND HE IS GOOD AT MOBILIZING

PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET.

HE'S GREAT AT THAT.

BUT THIS OTHER THING, OUR

COUNTRY IS AT RISK.

ANOTHER COUNTRY IN EUROPE IS

FACING AN ECONOMIC CRISIS,

AND THAT'S THE COUNTRY OF

FRANCE.

AND NOW THEY HAVE A RADICAL

IDEA OF HOW TO FIX THEIR

PROBLEM.

THEY'RE GOING TO CUT TAXES

IN FRANCE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, THAT'S

RIGHT.

FRANCE'S NEW PRIME MINISTER

IS PROMISING DEEP TAX CUTS

FOR FRENCH BUSINESSES AND

HOUSEHOLDS.

HIS PLAN IS AN EFFORT TO

JUMP-START THE COUNTRY'S

WEAK ECONOMY WITH

UNEMPLOYMENT HOVERING AROUND

10%.

HE IS ALSO PROMISING TO CUT

THE BUDGET AND BUREAUCRACY.

HE SAYS THE RECENT ELECTION

SHOWS THAT FRANCE HAS TOO

MUCH SUFFERING AND NOT

ENOUGH HOPE.

CBN'S DALE HURD HAS REPORTED

ON HOW THE WEALTHY AND YOUNG

HAVE BEEN FLEEING FRANCE.

YOU CAN FIND HIS STORY AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

WHILE TAXES MAY BE COMING

DOWN IN FRANCE, THE COST OF

HEALTH CARE IS UP HERE IN

THE U.S.

PREMIUMS FOR INSURANCE HAVE

BEEN RISING SHARPLY,

ACCORDING TO A SURVEY OF

INSURANCE BROKERS BY MORGAN

STANLEY ANALYSTS.

THEY SAY THE INCREASES ARE

LARGELY DUE TO CHANGES FROM

OBAMACARE.

SOME STATES WERE HIT HARDER

THAN OTHERS.

THE AVERAGE INCREASE IN

DELAWARE HAS BEEN 100%.

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, 90%, AND

CALIFORNIA, 53%.

IT COMES AFTER A PREVIOUS

RATE HIKE IN 2013.

PAT?

Pat: WE WERE PROMISED

SOMETHING, YOU REMEMBER?

NO ANY OF THEM KEEP THEIR

WORD.

IT IS JUST TERRIBLE.

WE PROMISE YOU YOUR HEALTH

CARE PREMIUMS WILL GO DOWN.

WE PROMISE YOU IF YOU LIKE

YOUR DOCTOR, YOU CAN KEEP

HIM.

WE PROMISE YOU IF YOU LIKE

YOUR HEALTH PLAN, YOU CAN

KEEP IT.

NONE OF THOSE THINGS ARE

TRUE.

AND NOW THE CHICKENS ARE

COMING HOME TO ROOST, AND,

MAN, THEY ARE EXPENSIVE.

WOW!

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, IT IS NO

SECRET THAT CONSERVATIVES

DON'T LIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

POLICIES, BUT LOUISIANA'S

REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR SAYS

THEY HAVE TO DO MORE THAN

CRITICIZE.

THEY HAVE TO COME UP WITH

IDEAS OF THEIR OWN.

DAVID BRODY HAS THE STORY.

David:BOBBY JINDAL

ISN'T SHY WHEN CALLINGOUT

HIS OWN PARTY.

WE CAN'T JUST BE THE

PARTY OF NO.

David: OR CRITICIZING

CANDIDATES WHO COMMENTS MAKE

REPUBLICANS LOOK INCENTIVE.

AS PART OF AN INTENT TO

REBRAND THE G.O.P., JINDAL

CAN BE SEEN THIS WEEK

TEAMING WITH JEB BUSH IN A

PROJECT CALLED "NEW

RUSSIAN," AS THE PARTY TRIES

TO ATTRACT NEW VOTERS.

JINDAL'S BIGGEST PLASH

SPLASH HE IS A ONE-IDEA

PERSON.

IF WE REALLY THINK THESE

ISSUES ARE SO IMPORTANT FOR

AMERICA, IF WE THINK WE'RE

AT A CRITICAL TIPPING POINT,

WE OWE IT TO HAVE A

DISCUSSION WITH THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

David: AND THE IDEAS

ARE FINE.

AS A FORMER HEALTH OFFICIAL

AND CONGRESSMEN, HE HAS MADE

A CAREER OUT OF STUDYING

POLITICAL SCRATCH JESUS.

HE HAS CREATED THE

CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATION

CALLED "AMERICA NEXT," AND

ITS TAG LINE: WINNING THE

WAR OF IDEAS.

HE SPELLED OUT HIS VERSION

OF HEALTH CARE REFORM.

HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS AND

$100 BILLION FOR STATES

CREATING LABORATORIES OF

DEMOCRACY ON HEALTH CARE.

LET'S MAKE HEALTH CARE

MORE AFFORDABLE SO WHEN YOU

LOSE YOUR JOB, YOU DON'T

LOSE YOUR COVERAGE.

AND THERE ARE REAL POLICIES

THAT WILL DRIVE DOWN THE

COST THAT DON'T INVOLVE THE

GOVERNMENT TAKING OVER

HEALTH CARE.

David: JINDAL TALKS

FAST AND IT CAN BE TOUGH TO

KEEP UP WITH ALL OF HIS

POINTS, RANGING FROM ENERGY

CONSERVATION AND SCHOOL

PROGRAMS.

LET'S MAKE THE DOLLARS

FOLLOW THE CHILD, INSTEAD OF

MAKING THE CHILDREN FOLLOW

THE DOLLARS.

David: AND HE HAS

PRIVATIZED AT A LOWER COST,

MANY JOBS THAT USED TO BE

RUN BY THE STATE.

AND POSSIBLY MORE IMPRESSIVE

IS THAT HIS FISCAL APPROACH

OF CUTTING PROGRAMS AND

GOVERNMENT WASTE HAS MEANT

BALANCED BUDGETS.

IT ALL ADDS UP TO

SPECULATION THAT HE IS

GEARING UP TO RUN FOR

PRESIDENT IN 2014.

WE'VE GOT ONE LIBERAL

PARTY ALREADY IN THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

WE DON'T NEED TWO.

WE NEED TO APPEAL TO ALL

FOLKS, BUT I DON'T THINK WE

NEED TO BECOME A SECOND

LIBERAL PARTY.

David: AND JINDAL MAY

BE TAKING THAT MESSAGE FOR A

PREJUDICIAL RUN IN THE NEAR

FUTURE.

Reporter: AND YOU CAN

SEE MORE OF DAVID'S

INTERVIEWS ON "THE BRODY

FILE" AT CBNNEWS.COM.

COMMISSIONERS IN ONE

MARYLAND COUNTY SAY THEY

RELUCTANTLY OBEY A JUDGE'S

ORDER BARRING MEETING'S

OPENING WITH PRAYERS.

SOME COMMISSIONERS HAVE

ROUTINELY PRAYED TO JESUS

WHEN IT WAS THEIR TURN TO

ASK FOR DIVINE GUIDANCE.

THE VOTED ON TUESDAY TO USE

ONLY SECTARIAN PRAYERS

THROUGH NOW.

THE SOLUTION RUNS THROUGH

AUGUST 1st, WHERE THEY

HOPE THE SUPREME COURT WILL

HAVE RULED ON A SIMILAR

DISPUTE IN NEW YORK CITY.

A GROWING NUMBER OF MOTHERS

ARE STAYING HOME TO RAISE

THEIR KIDS.

29% DID NOT WORK OUTSIDE OF

THE HOME IN 2012, THAT'S UP

FROM A LOW OF 23% IN

TWO-THIRDS OF THE CENTURY.

MORE OF AT-HOME MOTHERS ARE

LIVING IN POVERTY COMPARED

TO WORKING MOTHERS, THOUGH.

JUNK FOOD CANNOT ONLY MAKE

YOU FAT, IT MIGHT MAKE YOU

LAZY AS WELL.

THAT'S THE FINDING FROM

RESEARCHERS AT UCLA.

THEY COMPARED LAB RATS WHO

ATE A DIET OF UNPROCESSED

FOODS, LIKE FISH, WHILE

OTHER ATE HIGHLY PROCESSED

FOODS.

AND THE ONES THAT ATE

PROCESSED TOOK LONGER

BREAKS.

THEY SAY THE DIET MAY LEAD

TO OBESITY.

AND IT IS THE LONG-TERM

EATING OF JUNK FOOD THAT

ACTUALLY LEADS TO OBESITY,

NOT SHORT-TERM.

Pat: WE'VE BEEN SAYING

IT FOREVER AND EVER.

Wendy: THE RATS GAVE UP

ON THEIR TASKS.

WHAT IMPORTANT TASKS DO THEY

HAVE?

Pat: THEY HAVE TO RUN

ON A MAZE OVER AND OVER.

IN TRUTH, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, IF YOU EAT SUGAR

AND THAT KIND OF STUFF, IT

WILL CAUSE YOUR BODY TO SLOW

DOWN.

AND YOU DON'T FEEL ENERGY.

YOU FEEL FATIGUE.

AND THAT -- YOU THINK YOU'RE

GETTING A KICK BECAUSE YOU

TAKE A SHOT OF CAFFEINE OR A

SHOT OF THIS, THAT, AND THE

OTHER, AND ESPECIALLY

CARBOHYDRATES, BUT IT WILL

LEAD TO FATIGUE, AND THAT'S

WHAT THIS STUDY SHOWS.

Wendy: AND YOU'LL GO

CRASHING DOWN.

IT IS GREAT FOR A FEW

MINUTES AND THEN YOU CRASH.

Pat: BY THE WAY, OUR

PRESIDENT -- WE CHECKED THE

WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE, THAT

SPEECH HE MADE TO THE UNITED

NATIONS IS STILL ON THE

WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE, WHERE

HE SAID THE FUTURE DOES NOT

BELONG TO THOSE WHO BLAS

BLASPHEMY THE PROPHET OF

ALLAN.

AND SO WHAT OUR PRESIDENT IS

SAYING THAT THE FUTURE DOES

NOT BELONG TO THE

CHRISTIANS.

IT BELONGS TO THE MUSLIMS.

THAT IS THE OFFICIAL WORD IN

THE UNITED NATIONS' SPEECH

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

AND OUR STAFF CHECKED TO

MAKE SURE THAT THING IS

STILL UP THERE, BECAUSE THEY

COULD PULL IT DOWN AND SAY,

WELL, HE REALLY DIDN'T SAY

THAT.

IT WAS ON THE WEBSITE AS OF

TODAY.

YOU CAN CHECK IT FOR

YOURSELF.

THE SPEECH HE MADE TO THE

UNITED STATES.

I TOLD YOU, WE HAVE COME ON

A BOOK HERE THAT IS

PUBLISHED BY THE TRUTH -- IT

IS WRITTEN BY THE TRUTH.

A GROUP OF SCHOLARS WHO

SPEAK ARABIC, SCHOLARS OF

ISLAM.

ISLAMIC THOUGHT.

AND HERE IS A BOOKLET THAT

IS LOADED WITH QUOTES FROM

THE PROPHET, FROM MOHAMMED.

IN THE QURAN, ALSO THE

HADITH, AND IT IS AN

HISTORICAL PRESENTATION OF

WHO HE WAS, WHERE HE CAME

FROM, AND WHAT HE DID IN

LIFE.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE

BOOKLET.

AND WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU.

WE'VE HAD 6500 PEOPLE WHO

REQUESTED THIS.

Wendy: WOW, PEOPLE

REALLY WANT TO UNDERSTAND.

Pat: OF COURSE THEY

DO.

THIS IS GORGEOUS, AND IT IS

SO READABLE.

AND IT IS FABULOUS.

YOU HAVE FRIENDS THAT SAY,

WELL, ISLAM SAYS THIS, AND

ISLAM SAYS THE OTHER.

THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS BECAUSE

THIS IS CAREFULLY VETTED BY

ISLAMIC SCHOLARS, AND IT IS

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.

Wendy: AND WE WERE

TALKING ABOUT THE SCRIPTURES

IN THERE FROM QURAN THAT

CLEARLY SHOW IT IS NOT A

RELIGION OF PEACE.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

ONCE THE MUSLIMS GAIN

CONTROL -- AND THAT'S WHAT

IT SAYS IN HER, ONC IN

HERE, THEN YOU DESTROY THE

INFIDELS.

YOU KILL THEM AND YOU CUT

THEIR HEADS OFF.

IT SAYS IT THERE, BEHEAD

THEM IN BATTLE.

IT QUOTES DIRECT FROM THE

QURAN.

WHEN BUSH CAME OUT AND SAID

IT IS A RELIGION OF PEACE,

HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT HE WAS

TALKING ABOUT.

AND YOU NEED TO GET THIS.

AND WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU

FREE FOR RIGHT NOW.

I THINK THERE WILL PROBABLY

MULTIPLE COURSES FOR

CHURCHES.

WE'VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT SOME

WAY OF GETTING PAID FOR THIS

BECAUSE YOU DON'T PRINT THEM

FOR FREE.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL COLOR AND IT

IS AVAILABLE.

IT IS CALLED "ISLAM,

RELIGION OF PEACE OR WAR?"

CALL IN, 1-800-759-0700, AND

WE'LL GIVE YOU A COPY.

IT IS RIGHT NICE.

Wendy: IT IS RIGHT

NICE.

YOU SOUND LIKE A COUNTRY

GENTLEMAN.

COMING UP, IT IS A BATTLE

BEING WAGED IN CLASSROOMS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, STUDENTS

BRINGING THE BIBLE INTO

PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AND NOW THIS

FIGHT IS HEADING TO THE

MOVIE THEATERS.

LEARN MORE RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Pat: WELCOME BACK,

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AN EXCITING PROGRAM TODAY,

AND WE HAVE MANY MORE THINGS

COMING UP.

CBN NEWS HAS BROUGHT YOU THE

STORY OF A PENNSYLVANIA

SCHOOL'S BIBLE CLUB, WHICH

HAPPENS TO BE THE MOST

POPULAR CLUB ON THAT

CAMPUS.

NOW THEY'RE TAKING THEIR

MESSAGE TO OTHER PARTS OF

THE COUNTRY, AND THEY'VE

EVEN GOT THE ATTENTION OF

MOVIE-MAKERS.

PAUL STRAND BRING US THAT

STORY.

Reporter: THE MEN WHO

HELPED BUILD ONE OF THE

WORLD'S LARGEST AND MOST FUN

PUBLIC SCHOOL BIBLE CLUBS

BROUGHT THEIR STYLE AND

SECRETS TO BOSTON RECENTLY.

AREA CHURCHES, PARENTS, AND

STUDENTS, HEARD ABOUT THE

CHRISTIAN KIDS IN REDBANK

VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

THE QUESTION IS WHETHER THE

THINGS THAT MAKE A SCHOOL

BIBLE CLUB POPULAR IN

SMALL-TOWN PENNSYLVANIA CAN

BE TRANSFERRED TO THE BIG

CITY.

SOME IN BOSTON WANT TO FIND

OUT.

JOE NOW RUNS

SCHOOLBIBLECLUB.COM TO HELP

OTHERS GET GOING.

I THINK KIDS ARE KIDS NO

MATTER WHERE THEY'RE AT.

I THINK THEY CAN BE

MOTIVATED TO LEARN THE BIBLE

IN THE SAME WAY AS RURAL

WESTERN P.A. OR THE BIG CITY

OF BOSTON.

WE HAVE TO PRACTICE IT.

Reporter: THE RED

BANKERS POUR ON LIVELY

PRESENTATION AND WACKY SKITS

TO KEEP IT ENTERTAINING.

HERE THEY HAVE JESUS WALKING

ON THE WATER, AND NOT ONLY

DID THEY PLAY JESUS AND THE

DISCIPLES, BUT THE BOAT, THE

WAVES, AND THE WIND, TOO.

THEY STAND READY TO JOIN

OTHER CHRISTIAN CLASSMATES

AND BRING THE BIBLE TO HER

DESPERATELY UNDERCHURCHED

STUDENT BODY.

WHEN I ASKED SOME PEOPLE

ABOUT GOD IN THE SCHOOL, AND

NOBODY KNOWS.

IT IS WORTH A TRY.

THERE IS, LIKE, A LOT OF

PEOPLE THAT DON'T GO TO

CHURCH BECAUSE IT IS SO

STRICT.

LIKE, OH, CHURCH IS BORING.

Reporter: STILL, AT A

TIME WHEN MANY AMERICANS

BELIEVE THAT THE SUPREME

COURT TOSSED GOD AND PRAYER

OUT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS,

THESE PARENTSAND STUDENTS

WONDERED IF SUCH CLUBS WOULD

BE A DEFLOUTING OF THE LAW.

WE ARE NOT INVITING KIDS

TO BE A REBELLIOUS YOUTH.

I TALKED TO A STUDENT WHO

SAID HIS TEACHER TOLD HIM TO

PUT HIS BIBLE AROUND, EVEN

TO CARRY IT AROUND IN

SCHOOL.

AND I TOLD HIM, YOU STILL

RESPECT AND OBEY YOUR

TEACHER, BUT LEGALLY YOU'RE

ALLOWED TO CARRY YOUR BIBLE

AROUND IN SCHOOL.

Reporter: AND SOME

RESISTING SCHOOL

ADMINISTRATIONS MAY JUST

NEED SOME GENTLE SCHOOLING

ABOUT WHAT THE LAW SAYS THE

SCHOOLS MUST ALLOW.

THE STUDENTS ACROSS

AMERICA HAVE THE RIGHT TO

HAVE BIBLE CLUBS.

Reporter: SOME MAY FEEL

THAT A PUBLIC SCHOOL IS NOT

THE RIGHT PLACE FOR A BIBLE

CLUB, BUT WHAT IS GREAT

ABOUT AMERICA IS THAT IT IS

UP TO THE STUDENTS.

IN THE NEW MOVIE "UNCOMMON

IERAS THE "UNCOMMON," THEY

BULLY KIDS.

THEY CANNOT BE AND WILL

NOT BE ANY BIBLE ACTIVITIES

ON THE HIGH SCHOOL.

Reporter: ERIC ESTRADA

WANTED TO BRING THIS TO THE

MOVIE.

IF A TEACHER SAYS TO

THEM, YOU CAN'T PRAY AT

LUNCH, YOU CAN'T PRAY AT

GRADUATION, AND YOU CAN'T

WEAR THAT T-SHIRT THAT SAYS

THAT JESUS LOVES YOU.

NO.

THEY CAN SAY, UP YOUR NOSE

WITH A RUBBER HOSE.

I'M GOING TO PRAY.

Reporter: REDBANK

STUDENTS AND PARENTS TURNED

OUT FOR THE FILM BY THE

HUNDREDS.

YOUR RIGHTS, THE RIGHTS

OF STUDENTS IN PUBLIC

SCHOOLS.

FREEDOM IS NOT FREEDOM IF

YOUR FORCED TO EXERCISE IT

IN PRIVATE.

Reporter: RACHEL HOOK

HEARD THE MOVIE WAS COMING

FOR A SPECIAL SHOWING AND

WROTE HER OWN SONG ABOUT

CHRISTIAN KIDS IN SCHOOLS

AND CALLED IT "UNCOMMON."

* YOU COULD SEE THE LIGHT

Reporter: ONE THE

MOVIE'S PRODUCERS HEARD THE

SONG, AND HAD RACHEL RECORD

IT PROFESSIONALLY, AND IT

WILL BE ON THE MOVIE

SOUNDTRACK.

I JUST WROTE IT FOR

MYSELF.

I DIDN'T EVEN THINK MY

FAMILY WOULD HEAR IT.

IT IS NICE TO BE IN A

SCHOOL THAT IS NOT A GODLESS

VACUUM.

Reporter: AND HUNDREDS

OF BOSTONIANS ARE ASKING

REDBANK TO COME SHOW THEM

HOW TO DO BIBLE CLUBS.

IT IS CONTINUING TO MAKE ITS

MARK IN THE WORLD.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REDBANK VALLEY HIGH.

Pat: MY HATS ARE OFF TO

ALL THOSE WONDERFUL PEOPLE

AT REDBANK VALLEY HIGH.

Wendy: COMING UP, MEET

A YOUNG WOMAN WHO WAS BORN

WITH A HOLE IN HER HEART,

KIDNEY PROBLEMS, A MISSING

EYELID, AND OTHER ISSUES.

SEE HOW THE POWER OF GOD

HEALED HER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: HEY, IT'S A

WONDERFUL DAY.

WE'RE GLAD YOUR WITH US.

WE'VE GOT SOME EXCITING

THINGS FOR YOU.

AND ONE OF THEM IS JUST

COMING UP.

WHEN SANDRA STANZION WAS

BORN, SHE HAD MULTIPLE

PROBLEMS.

HER KIDNEYS WERE FAILING.

HER HEART HAD A HOLE IN IT,

AND HER LEFT EYELID WAS

MISSING AN EYELID -- HER

LEFT EYE WAS MISSING AN

EYELID, AND SANDRA'S PARENTS

WERE CHRISTIANS, BUT THEY

HAD NEVER HEARD THAT GOD

STILL HEALS TODAY, UNTIL

SANSANDRA'S MOTHER TURNED

ON A PROGRAM CALLED "THE 700

CLUB."

IT WAS VERY TRAUMATIC.

Reporter: CAROL WAS

PREGNANT WITH HER FIRST

CHILD AND HAD A ROUTINE

ULTRASOUND.

IT REVEALED HER DAUGHTER HAD

EXCESSIVE FLUID IN HI IN

HER BRAIN.

THE ONE DOCTOR I HAD SAID

HE HAD AN 80% CHANCE OF

BEING MENTALLY RESTARREDED,

BLIND AND/OR DEAD BECAUSE OF

THE COMPRESSION OF THE

BRAIN.

Reporter: SHE AND HER

HUSBAND, PAUL STANDZION

DIDN'T EVEN NEED TO DISCUSS

HAVING AN ABORTION.

THE EASIEST DECISION WAS

TO CHANGE DOCTORS.

Reporter: GOD HAS GIVEN

US THIS CHILD.

IF HE WANTS US TO HAVE THIS

CHILD, WHATEVER THE ISSUES

ARE, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE

THIS CHILD.

Reporter: CAROL CARRIED

THE BABY FULL TERM AND THEY

NAMED HER SANDRA.

SHE HAD SEVERAL PHYSICAL

DEFORM TEASE.

DEFORMITIES.

THE MOST NOTICEABLE WAS HER

LEFT EYELID.

BUT THERE WERE OTHER

PROBLEMS.

WHEN THEY STARTED WORKING

WITH HER EYE, THEY FOUND SHE

HAD A HOLE IN HER HEART.

AND AS MORE AND MORE TESTS

WERE MADE, MORE AND MORE

PROBLEMS WOULD SHOW UP.

SANDRA HAD KIDNEY

ISSUES.

WE NOTICED HER LEFT SIDE

WAS NOT KEEPING UP WITH THE

RIGHT SIDE.

HER LEFT ARM WAS SMALLER AND

HER LEFT LEG WAS SMALLER.

IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT

FIRST YEAR.

Reporter: ONE DAY THE

DOCTOR CALLED AND GAVE THEM

MORE BAD NEWS.

HE SAID THAT IF HER

KIDNEYS CONTINUED TO

DETERIORATE AT THIS RATE,

SHE WOULD BE DEAD WITHIN THE

YEAR.

I JUST REMEMBER HANGING UP

THE PHONE, AND I HAD MAY

BACK TO THE WALL, AND I JUST

SLID DOWN THE WALL.

AND JUST BROKE DOWN AND

CRIED.

AND I HAD NO HOPE.

I DID NOT HAVE HOPE.

I DID NOT KNOW WHERE TO GO.

I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.

MY DAUGHTER NEEDED HEALING.

AND I WANTED SOMEBODY TO

HELP PRAY WITH ME.

AND I WENT FROM CHURCH TO

CHURCH, AND I BASICALLY GOT

THE SAME ANSWERS, WAS THAT

GOD MADE HER THIS WAY.

YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS.

IT WAS DEVASTATING.

IT WAS A VERY ISOLATING

TIME.

Reporter: CAROL WAS

FLIPPING THROUGH CHANNELS

ONE DAY AND FOUND A SHOW SHE

NEVER WATCHED BEFORE, "THE

700 CLUB."

Pat: THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD.

PAT ROBERTSON WAS ON TV,

AND HE STARTED TALKING ABOUT

A GOD WHO STILL HEALS, A GOD

WHO STILL HEALS.

WOW!

SHOWS ARE INCREDIBLE WORDS.

I HAD NOT HEARD THEM IN ANY

OF THE CHURCHES.

I HAD NOT HEARD THEM FROM

THE PEOPLE.

I JUST HEARD THAT I HAD TO

JUST ACCEPT THE WAY SANDRA

WAS GOING TO BE, PROBABLY IN

A WHEELCHAIR, OR PROBABLY

WITH A WALKER.

BUT THIS MAN ON TV SAID THAT

THERE IS A GOD WHO STILL

HEALS.

THAT WAS AMAZING.

IT WAS AMAZING.

IT WAS EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED

TO HEAR.

WHEN CAROL DISCOVERED

"THE 700 CLUB" AND HEARD OF

A GOD THAT DOES HEAL TODAY,

IT WAS AWESOME.

AND THEN WE STARTED

BELIEVING THAT SANDRA CAN BE

HEALED.

GOD CAN DO THIS.

THERE WAS HOPE FOR

SANDRA.

THERE WAS HOPE.

Reporter: CAROL BEGAN

WATCHING THE SHOW EVERY

DAY.

ONE TIME, WHILE PRAYING FOR

SANDRA'S KIDNEYS, SHE SAYS

SHE FELT POWER GO THROUGH

HER HAND AS SHE TOUCHED HER

DAUGHTER'S BACK.

THE NEXT DOCTOR'S VISIT

REVEALED SOMETHING AMAZING.

SHE HAD ANOTHER

ULTRASOUND, AND THE HOLE IN

THE HEART WAS GONE.

AND THEY COULD NOT FIND

ANYTHING WRONG WITH HER

HEART.

AND I STARTED JUMPING UP

AND DOWN.

I GO, OH, IT WASN'T HER

KIDNEYS.

IT WAS HER HEART.

IT WAS HER HEART.

I'M JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND

I'M PRAISING GOD.

WE BEGAN TO BELIEVE THAT

GOD CAN DO ANYTHING.

Reporter: THAT HAPPENED

ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO.

SINCE THEN, CAROL AND PAUL

SAY THERE HAVE BEEN MANY

MORE MIRACLES.

THE BIGGEST ONE WAS THE JOY

OF WATCHING THEIR DAUGHTER

GROW UP.

SHE HAS EYELASHES WHERE

THEY COULDN'T REALLY GROW.

IT'S JUST SKIN PULLED FROM

THE SIDE OF HER FACE, BUT

GOD PUT EYELASHES ON THAT

EYELID.

GOD DID THAT MIRACULOUSLY

SO I CAN HAVE EYELASHES,

EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT A

TYPICAL, NORMAL EYELID.

THE HOLE IN HER HEART IS

GONE.

HER KIDNEYS ARE NOW

FUNCTIONING NORMAL.

SHE HAS TWO LEGS THAT ARE

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT AND

BEAUTIFUL.

SHE WENT ON TO BE A

CHEERLEADER.

SHE IS NOW ON THE DEAN'S

LIST AT THE COLLEGE SHE GOES

TO, AND I AM JUST SO PROUD

OF HER.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT SHE

CAN'T DO TRUSTING IN GOD.

Reporter: TODAY THE

FAMILY SAYS THEY HAVE BEEN

FOREVER CHANGED THROUGH THE

HEALING POWER AND LOVE OF

JESUS CHRIST.

THE BIBLE SAYS ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH CHRIST,

AND I JUST WANT PEOPLE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT THEY REALLY

CAN TRUST HIM AND FOCUS

THEIR LIVES AROUND HIM

BECAUSE HE REALLY IS THE

ONLY ONE THAT WE CAN FULLY

DEPEND ON AND TRUST IN.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

I HAVE SEEN HIS HEALING

TOUCH, I FELT HIS HEALING

TOUCH, AND HE DOES HEAL

TODAY.

AND THE BIGGEST STORY, LIKE

I SAID, IS NOT THE HEART OR

HANDS OR LEGS, IT IS THE

LIVES THAT HAVE BEEN

CHANGED.

THERE IS HOPE THAT YOU JUST

CAN'T GET FROM THE WORLD, OR

EVEN INDIVIDUAL RELIGIONS.

IT IS ABOUT A GOD WHO LOVES

US.

AND HE STILL IS.

IT IS VERY EXCITING.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THOSE OF

US WHO REPRESENT THE LORD

NEED TO SET PEOPLE FREE.

WE NEED TO BRING THEM INTO

THE POWER OF GOD.

NOT TELL THEM GOD DOESN'T DO

THIS, GOD STOPPED DOING

THAT, AND SO FORTH.

WITH HIM ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

THAT WONDERFUL SCRIPTURE

ABOUT ABRAHAM, HE BELIEVED

GOD, AND GOD ACCOUNTED IT TO

HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

FIXING UP AN EYELID, THAT'S

NOTHING FOR GOD.

FIXING A KIDNEY, THAT IS

NOTHING FOR GOD.

HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE MOST

POWERFUL BEING IN ALL OF THE

UNIVERSE.

WHY CAN'T HE FIX SOMETHING?

WHY WOULD HE NOT BE ABLE TO

FIX YOU?

OF COURSE HE CAN.

WHY CAN'T HE TAKE CARE OF

YOUR FINANCES?

OF COURSE WE CAN.

HE IS LOOKING FOR US TO

BELIEVE HIM.

AND JESUS SAID, ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM WHO

BELIEVES.

THIS IS A STORY FROM JOHN,

WHO LIVES IN DAYTON, OHIO.

HE HAD A LARGE ROCK HIT HIM

IN THE EYE.

AND AFTER SEEING

SPECIALISTS, HE WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH A TORN

RETINA.

AND AFTER WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, HE HEARD WENDY SAY,

"SOMEBODY HAS A TORN RETINA,

AND GOD IS HEALING YOUR

EYE."

JOHN SAID, "THAT'S ME.

AN" AND HE RECEIVED THE

HEALING.

Wendy: LINDA OF

COLORADO INJURED HER RIGHT

HAND.

AND IT HURT TO DO THE

SIMPLEST TEST.

DOCTORS DIAGNOSED HER WITH

NERVE DEGENERATE, AND SHE

TOOK MEDICINE, BUT NOTHING

WORKED.

ONE DAY LINDA WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," WHEN SHE

HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT SOMEONE

HAVING PROBLEMS GRIPPING

PROBLEMS BECAUSE OF NERVE

DAMAGE IN THEIR RIGHT HAND.

LINDA CLAIMED THAT WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

WITHIN THE HOUR, SHE

REGAINED STRENGTH AND WAS

ABLE TO TWIST OFF THE LID ON

A CAN AND SHE HAS HAD NO

TROUBLE SINCE."

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

LINDA.

BUT GOD KNOWS SHE HAD NERVE

DAMAGE.

FOLKS, GOD KNOWS YOUR

PROBLEMS, AND HE IS WITH

YOU.

NOW, WENDY AND I ARE GOING

ALL I'M ASKING YOU TO DO IS

RECEIVE SOMETHING FROM THE

POWER OF GOD.

WE'LL JOIN HANDS AND WE'RE

GOING TO BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, I JOIN HANDS WITH

WENDY, AND WE PRAY TOGETHER

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Wendy: HALLELUJAH.

Pat: THERE IS A KIDNEY

BLOCKAGE -- IT IS NOT KIDNEY

STONES, BUT THERE IS A

BLOCKAGE IN YOUR KIDNEYS,

AND THEY'RE NOT

FUNCTIONING.

RIGHT NOW YOU'LL FEEL HEAT

IN THAT AREA, AND THERE IS

AN OPENING, LIKE THE LORD

HAS JUST OPENED UP THOSE

VARIOUS ITEMS IN THE

KIDNEY.

AND YOU WILL BE ABSOLUTELY

HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.

WENDY?

Wendy: PEOPLE WITH

SCIATIC NERVE DAMAGE -- I

DON'T KNOW WHICH LEGS, BUT

YOU KNOW, AND IT'S CAUSING

PAIN ALL THE WAY DOWN TO

YOUR FEET.

AND THE LORD IS TOUCHING

YOUR SCIATIC NERVE RIGHT

NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE

HEALED.

Pat: YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH YOUR OVERBITE.

YOUR JAW IS OUT OF

ALIGNMENT.

YOU WOULD LIKE IT TO BE

DIFFERENTLY.

PUT YOUR HAND OVER YOUR FACE

RIGHT NOW IN THE JESUS THOSE

JAWS ARE GOING TO REALIGN.

YOUR BITE WILL BE COMPLETELY

WHOLE.

THANK YOU, FATHER.

Wendy: THERE ARE PEOPLE

WHO ARE HURTING IN THEIR

SOUL.

THEY'RE HEARTBROKEN, AND,

LORD, YOU ARE BRINGING

EMOTIONAL RELIEF TODAY TO

MANY PEOPLE WATCHING RIGHT

NOW.

THEY JUST FEED A

BREAKTHROUGH IN YOUR

EMOTIONS.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: AND THERE ARE

PEOPLE ALSO GRIPPED BY

FEAR.

GOD IS SETTING YOU FREE FROM

FEAR.

PERFECT LOVE CAST OUT FEAR.

GOD IS GIVING YOU

DELIVERANCE FROM FEAR IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

NOW, LORD, BLESS THE PEOPLE,

THEY ARE, IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: WHEW!

WHEREVER YOU ARE, PRAISE THE

LORD AND GIVE US A CALL.

DONE FOR YOU.

AND IF YOU NEED FURTHER

PRAYER, THE TELEPHONE NUMBER

IS THERE ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

IT IS EASY TO SEE AND EASY

TO REMEMBER.

WENDY?

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

WE'LL BE ANSWERING QUESTIONS

FROM YOU, OUR VIEWERS, LIKE

THIS ONE FROM ROBIN WHO

SAYS, "MY HUSBAND TELLS ME

IF I DON'T READ THE BIBLE,

I'M GOING TO HELL.

IS THIS TRUE?"

WE'LL TACKLE THAT AND MORE

LATER ON TODAY'S SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

VOTERS ARE FLOCKING TO THE

POLLS IN LARGE NUMBERS IN

INDIA.

FOR THE NEXT FIVE WEEKS,

INDIAN VOTERS WILL CAST

BALLOTS TO DECIDE WHICH

PARTY WILL CONTROL THEIR

FIGURE.

THE POLLS SO THE OPPOSITION

MAY WIN, BUT WILL FALL SHORT

OF THE MAJORITY NEEDED TO

CONTROL PARLIAMENT.

THAT WOULD PAVE THE WAY FOR

B.J. P. COALITION.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE GLOBAL

COUNCIL FOR IND YANT

CHRISTIANS SAYS THE RETURN

TO POWER MAY NOT BODE WELL

FOR MINORITIES AND

CHRISTIANS.

THEY SAY THE GOVERNMENT WILL

BE ON THE WRONG SIDE IF THEY

SUPPORT A GOVERNMENT THAT

DOES NOT PROTECT RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

CRAIG JAMES HAS JOINED THE

CHRISTIAN COUNCIL.

HE SAYS HE WILL FIGHT THE

BIGOTRY HE BELIEVES LED TO

HIS TERMINATION FROM FOX

SPORTS.

FOX CALLED HIM A POLARIZING

FIGURE WHO USED HIS ON-AIR

POSITION TO FURTHER AN

AGENDA.

HE WILL SERVE ASSISTANT TO

TONY PERKINS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN 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: THE GOOD NEWS,

FOLKS, IS THAT YOU CAN STAY

AT HOME AND YOU CAN STUDY

ONLINE.

AND YOU CAN GET SOMETHING

THAT WILL FURTHER YOUR

CAREER.

ALL KINDS OF INTERESTING

PROGRAMS ARE AVAILABLE IN

PRE-LAW AND COMPUTERS AND

SOCIAL SCIENCE AND

GOVERNMENT AND EDUCATION AND

COMMUNICATIONS AND

PSYCHOLOGIST, AND IT GOES ON

AND ON.

THERE ARE ABOUT THE 59

DIFFERENT PROGRAMS.

SO GO TO YOUR WEBSITE.

IT'S IT'S REGENT.EDU AND LOG

ON.

IT IS THERE FOR YOU.

WENDY HAS AN INTERESTING

LETTER THAT HAS COME IN.

Wendy: DONNA WRITES, "I

FEEL COMPELLED TO WRITE AND

THANK YOU.

TWO YEARS AGO I HEARD ABOUT

REGENT ON "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND LOOKED INTO I IT FOR

OUR DAUGHTERS.

I WAS SO NERVOUS ABOUT

SENDING OUR GIRLS AWAY FROM

HOME, BUT I FOLLOWED GOD'S

LEAD.

OUR DAUGHTERS BEGAN YOUR

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM LAST

FEBRUARY.

THE CAMPUS IS JUST

BEAUTIFUL.

THE HOUSING IS COMFORTABLE,

SPACIOUS AND FUN.

THE PROFESSORS ARE GODLY,

WONDERFUL PEOPLE.

WHEN WE WENT TO VISIT OUR

GIRLS, THEY GAVE US A TOUR

OF THE CAMPUS, THE LIBRARY,

THEATER, CHAPEL, AND

CLASSROOM BUILDINGS ARE

SPLENDIDLY BUILT.

PARENTS, IF YOU'RE LOOKING

FOR A GREAT PLACE TO SEND

YOUR CHILDREN, I HIGHLY

RECOMMEND YOU SCHEDULE A

TOUR."

AND THIS IS FROM DONNA, WHO

WAS RELUCTANT AT FIRST, BUT

NOW IS OBVIOUSLY TOTALLY

SOLD OUT.

Pat: DONNA, THANK YOU

FOR TRUSTING US WITH YOUR

CHILDREN.

WE HAVE AN UNDERGRAD PROGRAM

ONLINE OR ON CAMPUS.

WE HAVE ABOUT 700 PEOPLE IN

A STUDENT-LED CHAPMAN PEL ON

CHAPEL ON THURSDAY NIGHT.

Wendy: IT IS CALLED

UNCHAPEL, AND EVEN THOUGH

I'M NOT COLLEGE, I GO FOR

THE WORSHIP AND THE WORD.

WE WALK OUT OF THE STUDIO,

PAT, AND IT IS GORGEOUS.

AND THE TREES AND THE

BUILDINGS.

Pat: WELL, THIS IS THE

CHRISTIAN IVY.

IT IS HERE.

Wendy: AND I WAS

WALKING IN THIS MORNING, TO

OUR BUILDING, AND I CAUGHT A

GLIMPSE OF THE CROSS FROM

THE NEW CHAPEL.

AND IT JUST TAKES YOUR

BREATH AWAY.

IT IS LIKE A LITTLE SLICE OF

PARADISE HERE.

Pat: GLORIOUS.

Wendy: I'M A FAN.

I CAN'T HIDE IT.

ROBIN WRITES, "MY HUSBAND

SAYS IF I DON'T READ THE

BIBLE, I WILL GO TO HELL.

IS THIS TRUE?

I'M A CHRISTIAN AND I

BELIEVE IN GOD."

Pat: YOU HAVE MY

PROFOUND SYMPATHY FOR BEING

MARRIED SOMEBODY LIKE THAT.

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE

HARD-NOSED FUNDAMENTALISTS,

AND THEY'RE JUST SUCH MEAN

PEOPLE.

AND LIFE IS SO STARK, AND

GOD IS A, YOU KNOW, CRUEL

OVERSEER WHO WILL PUT YOU IN

HELL IF YOU DON'T READ THE

BIBLE.

THAT'S NONSENSE.

IF YOU DON'T READ THE BIBLE,

YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE WILL BE

STUNTED, NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT, BECAUSE THIS IS FOOD FOR

THE SOUL AND FOOD FOR THE

SPIRIT.

BUT GOD IS NOT GOING TO PUT

YOU IN HELL BECAUSE YOU

DON'T READ YOUR BIBLE.

BUT I RECOMMEND YOU SET UP

REGULAR BIBLE STUDY BECAUSE

IT WILL ENRICH YOU.

Wendy: KIMBERLY WRITES,

"I'VE BEEN SUFFERING FROM

DEPRESSION FOR YEARS AND

PRAYED TO GOD TO DELIVER ME

FROM IT.

IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THIS

HEALING, DO I NOD NEED TO

FORGIVE THOSE BEFORE I CAN

RECEIVE HEALING FROM THIS

DEPRESSION FROM GOD?"

Pat: YOUR OWN QUESTION

BETRAYS YOU.

OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO

FORGIVE PEOPLE.

FORGIVE THAT YOUR HEAVENLY

FATHER WILL FORGIVE YOU.

YOU'RE ASKING GOD FOR A

MIRACLE.

IN ORDER TO BE IN A POSITION

OF MIRACLES, YOU HAVE TO BE

IN A CONDITION OF BEING BORN

AGAIN.

AND SO YOU NEED TO BE IN A

POSITION OF FORGIVENESS.

OF COURSE FORGIVE.

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO KEEP

DEPRESSION?

YOU KNOW YOURSELF THAT IS

CAUSING A PROBLEM.

RELEASE THAT AND GOD WILL DO

A MIRACLE FOR YOU.

Wendy: SHE KNOWS THE

ANSWER.

MRS. "A" SAYS, "I LIVE IN A

THIRD WORLD COUNTRY.

I'M A MISSIONARY AND I DON'T

MIND GIVING TO THE BEGGERS

ON THE STREET WHO ARE BLIND

OR ELDERLY.

HOWEVER, THERE IS A GROUP OF

BEGGERS WHO BEG FOR A

LIVING.

THEY ARE NOT OLD OR

DISABLED.

THEY REFUSE HELP FROM THE

GOVERNMENT OR CHURCH

ORGANIZATIONS.

JESUS SAYS GIVE TO EVERYONE

WHO ASKS OF YOU, AS

CHRISTIANS, HOW DO YOU THINK

WE SHOULD RESPOND TO THESE

TYPES OF BEGGERS?"

Pat: THERE ARE

PROFESSIONAL CON ARTISTS.

AND IN INDIA, THEY ACTUALLY

CRIPPLE PEOPLE IN ORDER TO

GET THEM IN A POSITION WHERE

THEY CAN BEG.

I KNOW IT'S A HORRIBLE THING

TO THINK -- THE PARENTS WILL

CUT THE LEGS OFF OF THEIR

CHILDREN SO THEY WILL HAVE

LITTLE STUMPS AND BE ABLE TO

BEG.

IT IS HORRIBLE.

YOU ACTUALLY ARE

CONTRIBUTING TO FRAUD.

AND IT'S A CRIMINAL

ENTERPRISE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE TO

CRIMINALS.

AND THAT'S WHAT IT AMOUNTS

TO.

Wendy: GOOD ANSWER.

YVETTE WRITES, "MY SON IS 19

AND HAS RECENTLY TOLD ME HE

IS GOING TO STUDY ISLAM.

AS A CHILD, HE BELIEVED IN

JESUS.

NOW I DON'T KNOW WHAT

CHANGED HIS MIND.

I BELIEVE HE HAS A FRIEND

THAT IS FEEDING HIM FALSE

INFORMATION.

HOW CAN I CHANGE HIS IDEAS

AND LEAD HIM BACK TO

CHRIST?

I WANT HIM TO BE SAVED."

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU

WHAT, THIS IS A LITTLE

BOOKLET.

IT HAS BEAUTIFUL GRAPHICS,

BEAUTIFUL PICTURES.

AND IT IS PACKED WITH

STATEMENTS FROM ISLAM.

IT SHOWS ABOUT THE ATTITUDE

TOWARDS WOMEN.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF HE WANTS TO

FOLLOW MOHAMMED, MOHAMMED

LIKED WOMEN.

AND HE FOUND A YOUNG GIRL,

WHO IS THE DAUGHTER OF A

FRIEND OF HIS, AND SHE WAS

SIX YEARS OLD, AND HE

THOUGHT SHE WOULD MAKE A

GOOD WIFE.

SIX YEARS OLD.

THEY CONSUMMATED THE

MARRIAGE.

HE WAS 53, AND AYESHA WAS

9.

HAVING SEX WITH A 9-YEAR-OLD

GIRL.

Wendy: AND THIS IS THE

PEOPLE THEY REVERE.

Pat: THAT'S THE PROPHET

THAT OUR PRESIDENT SAYS IF

YOU BLASPHEMY HIM, YOU HAVE

NO FUTURE AHEAD OF YOU.

THE FUTURE DOESN'T BELONG TO

PEOPLE WHO TALK ABOUT HIM.

GET THIS BOOKLET, AND GIVE

IT TO YOUR SON.

SAY READ IT.

IT IS CAREFULLY RESEARCHED

BY PEOPLE WHO ARE ARABIC

SPEAKERS AND EXPERTS ON THE

QURAN.

NEXT QUESTION.

Wendy: ROGER

WRITES, "WHEN JESUS WAS

CRUCIFIED, WHERE DO YOU

THINK HE WENT BEFORE HE ROSE

FROM THE DEAD?"

Pat: IF YOU LOOK AT 1

PETER, IT SAYS HE DESCENDED

INTO THE DARK REGIONS,

HAITI'S AND WHATEVER, AND HE

PREACHED TO THE SPIRITS OF

THOSE WHO WERE IN

CAPTIVITY.

AND THEN HE ROSE FROM THE

DEAD.

HE LED CAPTIVITY AND GAVE

GIFTS TO MEN.

WE THINK DURING THAT PERIOD

OF TIME HE WAS PREACHING THE

GOOD NEWS OF SALVATION TO

THOSE WHO WERE HELD IN

PRISON.

MAYBE THOSE OLD TESTAMENT

PEOPLE HADN'T HAD THE FULL

REVELATION OF GOD, AND HE

GAVE THEM THAT REVELATION IN

THAT INTERIM PERIOD, AFTER

HIS CRUCIFIXION AND BEFORE

HIS RESURRECTION.

IT IS IN PETER.

WHAT ELSE?

Wendy: WE'RE OUT OF

TIME.

WE'VE GOT TO MOVE ON.

UP NEXT, A CHEATING HUSBAND

GETS BUSTED BY HIS OWN

WIFE.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SHE

FINDS OUT, NEXT.

Pat: MITCH ALVERSON

MADE A VOW WHEN HE WAS

MARRIED THAT HE WAS GOING TO

LOVE AND HONOR HIS WIFE.

THEY WERE GOING TO BE

TOGETHER IN UNITY.

BUT HE DEPUT DIDN'T WAIT

VERY LONG TO SUCCUMB TO HIS

ADDICTION.

SHORTLY AFTER MARRYING

MICHELLE, MITCH WAS CHECKING

OUT INTERNET PORN.

AND AFTER THE YEARS OF LIES,

HE WAS LEFT WITH ONE FINAL

OPTION.

AND SO MITCH THOUGHT, WELL,

IT'S ALL OVER.

SHE'S KICKING ME OUT.

HE PACKED HIS BAGS AND TOLD

HIS WIFE THE TRUTH.

Reporter: MICHELLE

CAUGHT HER HUSBAND, MITCH,

RED-HANDED.

SHE WAS GOING THROUGH BILLS

WHEN SHE SAW CHARGES FOR

INTERNET PORNOGRAPHY.

SHE TOLD HERSELF IT WASN'T A

BIG DEAL THE FIRST TIME.

IT WAS A GUY THING.

IT WAS JUST SOMETHING THAT

MEN DID.

AND I JUST SAID, DON'T DO IT

ANYMORE.

I WAS GOING TO ASK HIM ON A

MONTHLY BASIS IF HE HAD

LOOKED AT ANYTHING TO KIND

OF HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE.

IT WOULD BE SOMETHING

THAT I WOULD CONFESS MORE

THAN ONCE.

Reporter: MITCH WAS

JUST A CURIOUS 7-YEAR-OLD

WHEN HE FIRST OPENED A

PORNOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE LEFT

BEHIND BY HIS BIG BROTHER.

ONE GLANCE STARTED A HABIT

THAT STAYED.

THAT BECAME A PART OF MY

EVERY DAY LIFE.

Reporter: MITCH

COULDN'T JUST STOP.

HE WAS ADDICTED TO

PORNOGRAPHY.

AS THE CONFESSIONS KEPT

COMING, MICHELLE'S FEELINGS

CHANGED.

I THINK I JUST THOUGHT, I

DON'T WANT TO KNOW.

YOU START TO THINK, AM I NOT

GOOD ENOUGH?

IT IS JUST BETRAYAL.

IT IS HEARTBREAKING.

Reporter: MICHELLE WAS

ALREADY A CHRISTIAN WHEN

THEY MARRIED.

SOON AFTER MITCH BECAME A

BELIEVER, TOO, BUT THE

COUPLE WAS MORE CONCERNED

WITH HOW THEY LOOKED TO

OTHERS AND DIDN'T REALLY

SURRENDER THEIR LIVES TO

GOD.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS,

REALLY.

I WAS PROBABLY SCARED AND

LONELY AND LOOKING FOR

SECURITY IN A MARRIAGE AND

NOT IN THE LORD AT ALL.

I DID RELIGION.

YOU GO TO CHURCH, YOU TAKE

YOUR KIDS TO SUNDAY SCHOOL,

AND THEN EVERYTHING JUST

WORKS OUT PERFECT.

I BELIEVED IN GOD, BUT I

DON'T THINK THAT HE HAD PAY

RULE OR REIGN OVER MY LIFE.

IT WAS ALL A MASK.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

WAS ALREADY GROWING APART

WHEN MITCH WAS ASKED TO WORK

OVERSEAS A FEW MONTHS.

I WAS TAKING CARE OF THE

KIDS, TAKING CARE OF THE

HOUSE, TAKING CARE OF ALL OF

THE RESPONSIBILITIES HERE

AND ACTUALLY ENJOYING IT

BEING JUST US GIRLS.

Reporter: BUT MICHELLE

HAD NO IDEA MITCH WAS HAVING

AN AFFAIR.

THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL

HAD JUST PULLED ME AWAY.

AND I ALLOWED THOSE THINGS

COME BETWEEN ME AND THE LORD

AND ME AND MY WIFE.

Reporter: MITCH'S

SECRETS CAUGHT UP WITH HIM

WHEN HE RETURNED HOME AND

NOTICED SYMPTOMS OF A SEXUAL

TRANSMITTED DISEASE.

YOU NEED TO HIT SOME SORT

OF BOTTOM BEFORE YOU

UNDERSTAND THE REAL

RAMIFICATIONS OF WHAT'S

GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE.

Reporter: IT TURNS OUT

MITCH DIDN'T HAVE AN S.T.D.,

BUT THE SITUATION WAS ENOUGH

TO SCARE HIM STRAIGHT.

HE TOLD MICHELLE THEY HAD TO

TALK.

ONE WAY I DESCRIBE IT IS

AS IF GOD REACHED DOWN AND

GRABBED ME BY THE BACK OF

THE NECK AND SAID, ENOUGH.

I ASKED HIM IF HE WAS

HAVING AN FA AFFAIR, AND

IMMEDIATELY HE SAID YES.

MY HEART SANK IN MY

STOMACH.

I THINK I THOUGHT SHE

WOULD ASK ME TO LEAVE.

Reporter: MICHELLE SAYS

THE HOLY SPIRIT TOOK OVER,

AND EVEN SHE WAS SHOCKED BY

WHAT SHE DID NEXT.

I JUST BEGAN TO EMBRACE

HIM AND TO LOVE ON HIM AND

TO TELL HIM THAT I WOULD BE

THERE FOR HIM.

AND IT'S THE PICTURE OF WHAT

JESUS DID FOR ME.

I MADE MY OWN SELFISH

CHOICES.

AND HE DOES NOT TURN HIS

FACE FROM ME.

HE EMBRACES ME AND LOVES

ME.

AND THAT'S WHAT I DID FOR

MITCH.

AND IN THE MIDST OF THAT, I

WAS COMFORTED AS WELL.

Reporter: MITCH SAYS

HIS WIFE'S RESPONSE SHOWED

HIM WHAT GOD'S LOVE REALLY

LOOKS LIKE.

HE IS THE ONE WHO PUT ME

BACK TOGETHER.

YOU KNOW, HE'S THE ONE WHO

REACHED DOWN AND GRABBED ME

AND PULLED ME OUT.

HE'S MADE ME WHOLE AGAIN

THROUGH JESUS.

Reporter: MITCH AND

MICHELLE MADE FRIENDS AT A

LOCAL CHURCH.

THAT'S WHERE THEY JOINED THE

"CELEBRATE RECOVERY"

MINISTRY.

A BIBLE-BASED PROGRAM THAT

HELPS PEOPLE OVERCOME HURTS,

HABITS, AND ADDICTION.

IT TAKES SOME

ACCOUNTABILITY, AND IT TAKES

AN OPEN PLACE, WHERE YOU

FEEL LIKE YOU CAN ACTUALLY

SHARE WHAT'S GOING ON IN

YOUR HEART.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

DECIDED TO PUT GOD FIRST AND

LET HIM SHOW THEM HOW TO

LOVE EACH OTHER.

WE LOVE BECAUSE HE FIRST

LOVED US.

SO I DON'T LOVE MITCH JUST

BECAUSE HE IS MY HUSBAND.

I LOVE MITCH BECAUSE JESUS

LOVES ME.

HE PAID SUCH A HIGH COST

FOR ME.

I NEED TO LOVE JESUS MORE

THAN I LOVE THAT SIN.

Pat: WHAT A BEAUTIFUL

STORY OF REDEMPTION.

YOU KNOW, IT'S SO EASY FOR A

WIFE TO SAY, WELL, THAT

SUCKER DID THAT TO ME, I'M

GOING TO FIX HIM.

HE BETRAYED ME.

I'M HURT.

I'M WOUNDED, I'M NOT GOING

TO SPEAK TO HIM.

I'M FINISHED.

MICHELLE SAID, NO, I'M GOING

TO BE LIKE JESUS.

AND WHAT JESUS WILL DO IS

TAKE THE SINNER, THE DIRTY,

STINKING, ROTTEN, SMELLY

SINNER, AND EMBRACE HIM AND

HER AND SAY, I'LL FORGIVE

YOU.

I'LL CLEANSE YOU.

I'LL MAKE YOU WHOLE.

I'LL BRING YOU INTO MY

FAMILY.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED WITH

MITCH AND MICHELLE.

THAT'S THE WAY TO DO IT.

YES, IT'S HARD.

WIVES THINK THEY'RE HURT.

HE DID THIS.

HE BETRAYED ME.

AND IT'S ABOUT ME.

AND I'VE BEEN HURT.

AND I'VE BEEN WOUNDED.

AND I'M NOT GOING TO FORGIVE

HIM.

NOW YOU CAN WRECK YOUR

MARRIAGE, YOU CAN HAVE A

DIVORCE.

YOU CAN SPLIT UP AND BE

MISERABLE FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE IF THAT'S WHAT YOU

WANT.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU, MICHELLE

IS THE EXAMPLE OF

CHRISTIANITY THAT YOU WANT

TO EMULATE.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO

UNDERSTAND, IS JESUS CHRIST

DIED FOR YOUR SINS.

HE DIED SO THAT YOU CAN BE

WHOLE AND BE FREE.

AND IF YOU WANT HIM RIGHT

NOW, IF YOU WANT HIS

FORGIVENESS, I'M JUST GOING

TO GIVE YOU AN OFFER RIGHT

NOW.

AN OFFER FROM HIS LOVE.

AND IF YOU'LL BOW YOUR HEAD

AND PRAY WITH ME, HE WILL

HEAR YOUR PRAYER AND HE WILL

COME INTO YOUR HEART AND

GIVE YOU A NEW LIFE.

PRAY IT RIGHT NOW, THESE

WORDS: JESUS -- THAT'S

RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

LORD JESUS, THANK YOU, LORD,

THAT YOU DIED FOR ME.

LORD, YOU KNOW WHAT A SINNER

I AM.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE DONE.

YOU KNOW WHAT GOES THROUGH

MY MIND.

AND YOU KNOW HOW I'VE ACTED

ON THOSE SINS.

GOD, PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

I COME TO YOU AND I SAY, BE

MERCIFUL TO ME, A SINNER.

AND, LORD, AT THIS MOMENT, I

GIVE YOU MY HEART.

AND I TAKE YOU AS MY

SAVIOR.

I RECEIVE YOUR SALVATION.

AND I ASK, LORD, THAT YOU

MIGHT FILL ME WITH YOURSELF

AND DELIVER ME FROM THAT

WHICH IS MY BONDAGE.

THANK YOU, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WELL, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

I HAVE SOMETHING I WANT TO

GIVE YOU.

IT'S A LITTLE BOOK CALLED "A

NEW DAY."

IT'S A PAMPHLET.

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO DO

NEXT.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT

AND I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR

SCREEN.

1-800-759-0700.

AND WE'LL SEND THIS TO YOU.

BUT THE ANGELS ARE REJOICING

OVER EACH ONE OF YOU THAT

SAID YES TO THE LORD TODAY.

WELL, THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE, TAKEN FROM

JEREMIAH: "FOR I KNOW THE

THOUGHTS, SAYS THE LORD,

THOUGHTS OF PEACE, AND NOT

OF EVIL, TO GIVE YOU A

FUTURE AND A HOPE."

WELL, TOMORROW, INSIDE

FRANCE'S NO-GO ZONES, WHERE

YOU CAN GET MUGGED FOR JUST

BEING WHITE.

THAT'S ON THURSDAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.

BYE-BYE.
