SHE HAD CARETAKERS AROUND

THE CLOCK.

THE NEXT STEP WAS TO PUT

ME IN A NURSING HOME.

SEIZURES RAVAGED HER

BODY, AND THEY RAVAGED HER

MIND.

THIS IS WHAT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN.

HOW MUCH DARE YOU PUT SO

MUCH HOPE IN MY LIFE.

OUR WEEK OF PRAYER

CONTINUE ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

AND MY FRIEND SAID, GOD'S

GOT THIS.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

HE'S GOT THIS.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WENDY IS HERE WITH US.

YOU'VE BEEN TRAVELLING THE

WORLD.

[LAUGHTER]

Wendy: INDEED.

CANADA.

I WAS UP ON A SHOW CALLED

"100 HUNTLEY STREET."

IT IS SORT OF A CANADIAN

VERSION OF --

Pat: OF THE "700

CLUB."

Wendy: YEAH.

THERE IS DAVID AND A LADY

NAMED MOYRA BROWN

INTERVIEWED ME, AND WE HAD A

GREAT TIME.

Pat: GLAD YOU'RE HERE.

WOULD YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT

THE 10th LARGEST ECONOMIC

ENTITY IN THE WORLD WOULD

BE?

Wendy: I DON'T KNOW.

Pat: WARSAW, SLOVIA --

NO.

THE REGULATORY BURDEN ON THE

UNITED STATES.

AND, ALSO, YOU'VE HEARD

ABOUT THE L.A. CLIPPERS.

AND THEY TOOK AWAY THAT

MAN'S RIGHT TO SEE HIS TEAM

PLAY BECAUSE OF RACIAL SLURS

HE MADE, BUT HE MAY BE

LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE

BANK.

BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND HIS

TEAM, THAT HE SPENT A FEW

THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR, IS

ACTUALLY WORTH OVER A

BILLION DOLLARS.

AND UNDERSTAND CERTAIN

UNDERSTANDINGS OF THE TAX

LAW, IF YOU'RE FORCED TO

SELL AN ASSET, YOU DON'T

HAVE TO PAY TAXES.

WHETHER IT IS CONSIDERED

UNDER THE LAW, THAT'S FOR

HIS TAX PEOPLE TO FIGURE

OUT.

BUT HE'LL BE LAUGHING ALL OF

THE WAY TO THE BANK.

Wendy: GARY HAS THIS

REPORT ON THE REACTION AND

WHAT COULD BE AHEAD.

Reporter: COMMISSIONER

ADAM SIL SILVER MADE IT

CLEAR, THE NBA WILL NOT

TOLERATE RACISM IN ITS

RANKS, ESPECIALLY FROM TEAM

OWNERS.@A

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, I

AM BANNING MR. STERLING FOR

LIFE.

Reporter: AND HE WILL

BE REQUIRED TO PAY A $

$2.5 MILLION FINE.

THE LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS

OWNER ADMITTED HE MADE

RACIST REMARKS TO HIS

GIRLFRIEND.

THE VIDEO WAS PUBLISHED BY

THE TABLOID SHOW, T.M.Z..

YOU'RE ASSOCIATING WITH

BLACK PEOPLE, DO YOU HAVE TO

BROADCAST IT?

Reporter: SOME NBA

PLAYERS AND ASSOCIATES SAY

STERLING HAS A LONG HISTORY

OF MAKING RACIST COMMENTS.

IN 2009, HE WAS FORCED TO

PAY NEARLY $9 MILLION AFTER

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

BROUGHT A SUIT AGAINST HIM

FOR HOUSING AUTHORITY

PROBLEMS.

THE HEALING PROCESS HAS

STARTED, AND WE'RE GOING TO

KEEP GROWING AND GETTING

AWAY FROM THIS.

I HOPE THAT EVERY BIGOT

IN THIS COUNTRY SEES WHAT

HAPPENED TO MR. STERLING.

Reporter: NOW THE

QUESTION IS: WILL THE NBA

FORCE STERLING TO SELL HIS

TEAM?

IF IF THAT DOES HAPPEN,

STERLING WILL END UP DOING

JUST FINE FINANCIALLY.

HE BOUGHT THE CLIPPERS IN

1981 FOR JUST $12 MILLION.

BUT SOME ESTIMATES PUT THE

MARKET VALUE OF THE CLIPPERS

NOW AT MORE THAN

$1 BILLION.

ALL OF THIS CONTROVERSY

OVER RACISM DIDN'T HAVE A

NEGLEC NEGATIVE EFFECT ON

THE CLIPPERS' PLAYOFF GAME.

THEY WON AND NOW TAKE THE

LEAD.

Pat: MAYBE IS CLEVER

LIKE A FOX.

MAYBE HE SAW IT COMING AND

DECIDED HE WOULD GET A TAX

BREAK AND BE FORCED TO SELL

HIS TEAM.

WHO KNOWS WHAT GOES ON IN

PEOPLE'S MIND.

BUT IT CERTAINLY SEEMS TO BE

FOOLISH TO MAKE SUCH AN

OUTRAGEOUS STATEMENT.

IN OTHER NEWS, THE SOUTH IS

ANOTHER DEADLY DAY OF

TORNADOES AND STORMS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PAT, TORNADO

ALERTS IN SEVERAL STATES

AFTER STORMS THE LAST FEW

DAYS DEVASTATED AREAS AROUND

THE REGION.

HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING IN

FLORIDA LEFT PEOPLE STRANDED

IN THEIR HOUSES AND CARS.

36 TORNADOES STARTED ON

SUNDAY FROM OKLAHOMA TO

NORTH CAROLINA, LEAVING

THOUSANDS WITHOUT POWER.

THE STORMS HIT ESPECIALLY

HARD IN ARKANSAS AND

MISSISSIPPI.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS ON

THE GROUND IN TUPELO,

MISSISSIPPI.

IT TOOK A DIRECT HIT FROM A

TORNADO ON MONDAY.

O.B. HAS SET UP A LOCAL

COMMAND POST, WHERE TEAMS

ARE HELPING RESIDENTS WITH

DEBRIS REMOVAL, AND THEY'RE

ALSO ATTENDING TO PEOPLE'S

SPIRITUAL NEEDS WITH THE

LOVE OF CHRIST.

ANGELA'S HOME WAS COMPLETELY

DESTROYED AND SHE SAYS IT IS

A MIRACLE THAT SHE AND HER

THREE CHILDREN WERE NOT HOME

AT THE TIME.

AND SHE IS GRATEFUL FOR

"OPERATION BLESSING'S"

HELP.

THERE IS A BATHTUB LAYING

BEHIND YOU ON THE ROAD.

AND THAT'S THE TUB THAT WE

SOAKED IN FOR NINE YEARS.

HAD WE BEEN HERE, THAT'S THE

TUB WE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN.

GOD MOVES IN MYSTERIOUS

WAYS, AND HE WAS WITH US.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE

WOULD DO WITHOUT GUYS COMING

IN AND ASSISTING.

I SURE WOULDN'T KNOW WHERE

TO START.

Reporter: FORECASTERS

SAY SOME STORM RISKS REMAIN,

INCLUDING LARGE HAIL,

DAMAGING WINDS, AND FLOODING

IN LARGE PORTIONS OF THE

SOUTH AND EAST COAST.

Pat: ALL I CAN SAY IS,

WE'VE REALLY GOT TO PRAY FOR

PEOPLE.

JUST IMAGINE IF YOU WERE IN

THAT SITUATION, AND

EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAD, AT

LEAST MATERIALLY, WAS WIPED

OUT.

YOUR HOME, YOUR POSSESSIONS,

YOUR LITTLE PRICED MOMENTOS,

ALL OF THAT GONE.

THOSE THINGS ARE

DEVASTATING, ABSOLUTELY

DEVASTATING, AND WE NEED TO

BE IN PRAYER FOR THEM.

I'M SURE YOU HAVE A FEELING

OF RELIEF, THANK THE LORD IT

DIDN'T HIT ME, BUT AT THE

SAME TIME, WE'RE GOING TO

HELP.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WILL

HELP AND OTHERS WILL HELP.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN THIS REGION.

THERE WERE SOME SERIOUS

TORNADOES IN NORTH CAROLINA,

JUST SOUTH OF US.

THINGS ARE CLEAR NOW, AND IT

IS QUITE WARM.

BUT WE'LL SEE IF MORE STRONG

STORMS ARE COMING IN FROM

THE WEST AND CENTRAL PART OF

AMERICA, COMING EAST, SO

WE'RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS

YET.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT,

AMERICANS ARE SPENDING

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EVERY

YEAR JUST TO PAY FOR THE

CONSTANTLY GROWING NUMBER OF

FEDERAL REGULATIONS.

THAT'S ONE OF THE FINDINGS

FROM THE ANNUAL REPORT

CALLED "THE 10,000

COMMANDMENTS" ISSUED EVERY

YEAR BY THE COMPETITIVE

ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE.

IT SHOWS THE 2013 FEDERAL

REGISTER CONTAINS MORE THAN

49,000 PAGES.

AND THE COST OF THOSE

REGULATIONS COMES TO NEARLY

$15,000 PER HOUSEHOLD.

THE REPORT ESTIMATES FEDERAL

REGULATIONS COST AMERICANS

NEARLY $2 TRILLION A YEAR,

MORE THAN THE GROSS DOMESTIC

PRODUCT OF CANADA OR

AUSTRALIA.

PAT, THAT'S AN AWFUL LOT OF

MONEY.

Pat: THE BUREAUCRATS

ARE OUT OF CONTROL, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

THERE WAS A RATHER

PERCEPTIVE ARTICLE IN THE

FINANCIAL TIMES, HAVING TO

DO WITH THE STATUS OF

AMERICA, VIS-A-VIS CHINA,

AND THE FACT THAT CHINA MAY

WELL BECOME THE LARGEST

ECONOMY IN THE WORLD BECAUSE

OF THE -- WELL, THE

DELIBERATE ATTEMPT OF THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND

THEIR ALLIES TO LIMIT THE

GROWTH OF SMALL BUSINESS, TO

LIMIT THE GROWTH OF MAJOR

CORPORATIONS, TO PUT SAND IN

THE GEARS OF ALL KINDS OF

THINGS.

WE HAVE WHAT'S CALLED

SARBANES OXY.

AND THEY'RE NOT RESPONSIBLE

FOR THAT, BUT THAT HAS

REALLY SCREWED UP OUR STOCK

MARKET.

WE HAVE THE FRANC

LEGISLATION, WHICH IS MAKING

IT REALLY HARD FOR BANKERS

TO DO BUSINESS.

AND THEN WE HAVE HUNDREDS

AND HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF

SMALLER REGULATIONS THAT ARE

MAKING IT EXTREMELY

DIFFICULT FOR BUSINESSMEN TO

GET UNDERTAKING THEIR

ENTERPRISES, AND TO ENGAGE

IN THE ENTERPRISE THAT PUTS

PEOPLE TO WORK.

SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.

WE HAVE TO GET FREE OF THESE

PEOPLE BECAUSE THERE IS LIKE

A MASS OF TERMITES THAT IS

EATING AWAY AT THE STRUCTURE

OF THIS GREAT E EDI EDI

EDIPHUS OF THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA.

Reporter: BRITISH

SCIENTISTS BELIEVE THEY MAY

BE ON THE WAY TO DEVELOPING

A PILL THAT COULD TURN OFF

YOUR APPETITE AND HELP YOU

LOSE WEIGHT.

IT WILL USE A MOLECULE IN

FIBRE THAT GIVES THE FEELING

OF BEING FULL.

THE CHALLENGE IS TO DELIVER

AN AMOUNT THAT EXPRESS

APPETITE, BUT THAT IS STILL

SAFE AND ACCEPTABLE.

TOMORROW IS THE ANNUAL

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER.

THIS YEAR'S THEME IS "ONE

VOICE UNITED IN PRAYER."

THE SCRIPTURE IS ROMANS 13:

6, SO THAT WITH ONE MIND AND

VOICE YOU MAY GLORIFY THE

GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD

JESUS CHRIST.

30,000 PRAYER GATHERINGS

WILL BE HELD ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

AND HERE IN WASHINGTON,

D.C., THE DAY WILL BE

OBSERVED ON CAPITOL HILL.

OKLAHOMA CONGRESSMAN JAMES

LANGFORD IS URGING AMERICANS

TO PRAY FOR THE NATION,

SAYING "THERE IS STILL A GOD

IN HEAVEN WHO HEARS OUR

PRAYER AND CARES ABOUT OUR

LIVES."

AND NOW LET'S GO BACK OVER

TO PAT FOR MORE.

PAT?

Pat: JOINING US NOW

FROM WASHINGTON IS THE

CHAIRMAN OF THE NATIONAL DAY

OF PRAYER TASK FORCE,

SHIRLEY DOBSON.

SHIRLEY, IT IS A PLEASURE TO

HAVE YOU WITH US AGAIN.

YOU'RE DOING A GREAT WORK.

TELL US ABOUT THIS YEAR'S

INITIATIVE?

PAT, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

SUPPORT OF THE NATIONAL DAY

OF PRAYER.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A HUGE

TURNOUT THIS YEAR.

FROM ALL INDICATIONS FROM

OUR OFFICE, IT IS PROBABLY

GOING TO BE ONE OF OUR

LARGEST DAYS OF PRAYER.

PAT, I AM GOING ON MY 23rd

YEAR AS CHAIRMAN OF THE

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER.

AND I DON'T THINK I HAVE

EVER FELT SUCH A NEED FOR

PRAYER AS I DO TODAY.

THIS NATION IS IN DESPERATE

NEED OF GOD AND PRAYER.

AND I JUST ENCOURAGE ALL OF

OUR VIEWERS TO SET ASIDE

SOME TIME TOMORROW, ON MAY

1st, TO PRAY FOR OUR

LEADERS, BOTH NATIONAL,

LOCAL, AND FEDERAL LEADERS.

OUR NATIONAL, LOCAL LEADERS,

WHEREVER THEY ARE.

YOUR MAYOR, THE CHAIRMAN OF

THE SCHOOL BOARD, ALL OF

THESE DIFFERENT

INFLUENCERS.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOR THEM.

AND PEOPLE ARE VERY

CONCERNED ABOUT OUR NATION.

WITH THE RANDOM SHOOTINGS,

THE BOMBINGS, CHILDREN IN

THE FOURTH GRADE SELLING

MARIJUANA AT SCHOOL.

I MEAN, SOMETHING IS WRONG

IN THIS COUNTRY, AND PEOPLE

FEEL IT.

AND SO I JUST WANT TO

ENCOURAGE EVERYONE THAT WE

NEED TO COME BEFORE ALMIGHTY

GOD AND REPENT OF THE SINS

OF OUR NATION AND ASK FOR

HIS MERCY AND HIS GRACE OVER

THIS LAND.

Pat: DO YOU HAVE HOPE

THAT OUR PRAYERS ARE GOING

TO BE ANSWERED?

I DO, PAT.

AS LONG AS GOD IS ON HIS

THRONE, THERE IS ALWAYS

HOPE.

AND LOOK AT NINEVEH IN THE

BIBLE.

IT TALKS ABOUT A CITY THAT

WAS FULL OF IDOLATRY AND

WICKEDNESS, AND GOD WAS

GOING TO DESTROY THEM.

AND YET THEY TURNED TO HIM

IN PRAYER AND FASTING, AND

ASKING FORGIVENESS, AND HE

SAID IN THE WORD THAT HE

CHANGED HIS MIND.

SO YOU KNOW, IN PSALMS IT

SAYS, "THE SHIELDS OF THE

EARTH BELONG TO THE LORD,"

AND SO HE IS THE PROTECTOR

OF OUR COUNTRY.

I KNOW HE WILL HEAR OUR

PRAYER AND BEGIN A GREAT

HEALING IN THIS LAND, IF WE

COME TO HIM IN HUMILITY.

Pat: WE JOIN YOU

TOMORROW.

MAY MAY 1s 1st BE THE

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER.

SHIRLEY DOBSON, THANK YOU

FOR BEING WITH US.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU, PAT, AND GOD

BLESS YOU.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

WE'RE READY.

COMING UP, THE THOUGHT

POLICE ARE COMING, AND

THEY'VE GOT YOU IN THEIR

SIGHTS.

WE HAVE POPULATIONS WHO

BELIEVE THAT THEY STILL HAVE

FREE SPEECH, AND THEN THEY

DO SOMETHING.

THEY JUST LITERALLY TWEET

SOMETHING THAT A POLITICIAN

DOESN'T LIKE, AND A KNOCK

COMES ON THE DOOR.

Wendy: HEAR WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO THOSE WHO DARE

TO SPEAK OUT, NEXT.

Pat: WELL, IF YOU HEARD

ABOUT THE FACT THAT

CHRISTIANS ARE INTOLERANT,

AND LIBERALS ARE TOLERANT,

AND LIBERALS TALK ABOUT

TOLERANCE, BUT MANY ON THE

LEFT DON'T REALLY WANT TO

PRACTICE TOLERANCE.

WELL, PEOPLE THAT THEY

DISAGREE WITH, THEY DON'T

WANT THEM TO HAVE ANY

FREEDOM AT ALL.

AS DALE HURD REPORTS, THAT

IS LEADING TO THE END OF

FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN EUROPE,

AND IT COULD ALSO HAPPEN

RIGHT HERE IN THE GOOD OLD

U.S.A.

Reporter: THE HEAD OF

MOZILLA, MAKER OF THE FIRE

BOX BROWSER, FORCED TO STEP

DOWN BECAUSE SEVERAL YEARS

AGO HE WAS AGAINST GAY

MARRIAGE.

BRANDIZE UNIVERSITY WITHDREW

A DEGREE TO A VICTIM OF

WOMEN'S RIGHTS BECAUSE HER

OPPOSITION TO ISLAM WAS

BEING DEE DEMONED.

IF YOU WANT A GLIMPSE INTO

HOW BAD IT COULD BECOME IN

AMERICA IN THE FUTURE, LOOK

TO EUROPE.

IN NORTH KOREA, THEY

WOULD JUST SHOOT YOU.

BUT IN EUROPE, THEY BRAND

YOU A RACIST, AND THEN

YOU'RE EFFECTIVELY SHUNNED

AND BLOCKED FROM THE MEDIA.

IN MOST CASES, THE GENERAL

PUBLIC NEVER HEARS YOUR

VIEWS.

BUT WE'RE NOT EVEN TALKING

ABOUT REAL RACISM.

IF YOU'RE AGAINST RADICAL

ISLAM, YOU CAN BE LABELLED A

RACIST.

TAKE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE

VALUES OF GOD, COUNTRY, AND

TRADITIONAL FAMILY TO

WESTERN EUROPE, AND YOU

WOULD BE BRANDED EXTREME

RIGHT, ANTIWOMAN, AND

HOMOPHOBIC, AND YOU COULD BE

PHYSICALLY ATTACKED.

OR IN SWEDEN, YOUR HOME

MIGHT BE WRECKED.

YOU COULD GET BEATEN UP.

WE SEE THAT IN SWEDEN.

Reporter: LARS HEDA

HEDAGAR PUBLISHES DISPATCH

INTERNATIONAL.

YOU HAVE THESE SO-CALLED

ANTI-FASCISTS COMING TO

RIGHT WINGERS' HOMES AND

WRECKING THEIR APARTMENT.

DESTROYING THE FURN, THE

FURNITURE, TEARING UP THE

BOOKS, AND THEN THEY MAKE A

VIDEO OF IT AND PUT IT OUT

ON THE WEB.

Reporter: UNDER THE

BANNER OF FIGHTING RACIST

AND LEFT-WING RADICALISTS

TERRORIZE THOSE WHO DARE TO

SPEAK OUT.

KIM IS CONSIDERED THE

LEADING EXPERT ON THE

EXTREME VIOLENT LEFT GROUPS

IN DENMARK.

THEY CALLED THEM

ANTI-RACISTS FOR A MORE

HUMANE SOCIETY AND SO ON.

BUT THEIR GOAL IS TO SMASH

THE DEMOCRACY, AS WE KNOW

IT.

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE

AGAINST FASCISM, BUT THEY'RE

REALLY AGAINST PARLIAMENTARY

GOVERNMENT.

YES.

WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT DELUSION

IN DENMARK, PEOPLE WILL SAY

CRAZY.

BUT WHEN YOU SAY YOU FIGHT

RACISM, SUDDENLY EVERYBODY

IS FOR IT.

Reporter: THROUGHOUT

WESTERN EUROPE, THOSE WHO

HOLD TO AMERICAN-STYLE

CONSERVATIVE VALUES ARE THE

OUTSIDERS.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH, WHICH IS

SUPPOSED TO BE THE RIGHT TO

SAY THINGS THE MAJORITY

DOESN'T LIKE, IS GONE IN

MOST OF EUROPE.

INCLUDING BRITAIN, ACCORDING

TO GEORGE IGLER ARE THE

DISCOURSE INSTITUTE IN

LONDON.

IT IS NOT A COUNTRY THAT

HAS FREE SPEECH.

BRITAIN IS INCREASINGLY NOT

A COUNTRY THAT HAS THE RULE

OF LAW.

WE HAVE POPULATIONS WHO

BELIEVE THEY STILL HAVE FREE

SPEECH.

AND THEN THEY DO SOMETHING,

THEY JUST LITERALLY TWEET

SOMETHING THAT A POLITICIAN

DOESN'T LIKE, AND A KNOCK

COMES ON THE DOOR.

AND THEY REALIZE THEY DON'T

LIVE IN THE SAME KIND OF

DEMOCRACY THEY THOUGHT THEY

LIVED IN.

Reporter: LAST WEEK IN

BRITAIN, PAUL WESTON WAS

ARRESTED FOR SIMPLY PUBLICLY

REPEATING THE WORDS OF

WINSTON CHURCHILL, IN WHICH

HE REFERRED TO THE CURSES OF

ISLAM.

AND IN FRANCE, JEAN

DESCRIBED HOW THE GOVERNMENT

AND THE MEDIA WORKED TO

CONTROL INFORMATION AND WHAT

VIEWPOINTS PEOPLE WILL SEE.

YOU CAN'T REALLY SAY IT

IS A DEMOCRACY WITH FREE

MEDIA AND THE COMPETITION.

IT IS AN ALIGAKY, NOT A

DEMOCRACY.

Reporter: MOST OF THEM

COPE BY SIMPLY NOT

EXPRESSING THEIR OPINIONS

PUBLICLY.

AMERICANS WHO LOOK AT

EUROPE IDEALISTICLY, JUST

DON'T HAVE A CLUE.

Reporter: CHRISTOPHER

DOSS TRAINS GRASSROOTS

ACTIVISTS FOR THE LEADERSHIP

INSTITUTE NEAR WASHINGTON.

BUT HE STUDIED AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF OSLO IN

NORWAY, AND STILL WORKS IN

EUROPEAN POLITICS.

HE SAYS AMERICA RISKS GOING

THE WAY OF EUROPE,

ESPECIALLY SINCE MOST OF OUR

UNIVERSITIES ARE TRAINING

YOUNG PEOPLE TO BE

INTOLERANT.

WE'RE HEADING IN THE SAME

DIRECTION AS WE UNLEARN

LIBERTY, AS STUDENTS GO

THROUGH FOUR YEARS OR MORE

OF UNIVERSITY COLLEGE

INDOCTRINATION, AND THEY

BECOME INCULCATED WITH THE

NOTION THAT ALL SPEECH

SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED.

Reporter: IF THIS NEW

FAS CISCISM IS NOT TURNED

BACK, LIFE IN AMERICA COULD

BECOME MORE OF A CHALLENGE,

AS IT ALREADY IS FOR MANY IN

EUROPE.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS,

COPENHAGEN.

Pat: IT IS

FRIGHTENING.

DALE, I WANT YOU TO KNOW

WE'RE GOING TO SPEAK OUT.

AND I BELIEVE ALL OF US

BELIEVE IN FREE SPEECH, AND

WE'RE GOING TO ASSERT OUR

RIGHTS AND WE'RE GOING TO

SAY WHAT WE FEEL.

I THINK THAT'S THE WAY

PEOPLE WANT IT.

I THINK THOSE OF YOU IN THIS

AUDIENCE REALLY NEED TO

STAND TOGETHER.

AND, YES, WE'RE GOING TO

FIGHT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

AND THE FASCISM OF THE

LEFT.

AND WENDY HAS ONE OF THE

REASONS WE'RE FIGHTING IT.

Wendy: INDEED.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR

WEEK OF PRAYER HERE AT CBN.

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO SHOW

YOU HOW PRAYER HEALED ONE

WOMAN'S M.S.

THAT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL I

SAID.

LORD, I'M READY TO RECEIVE

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE FOR ME.

Wendy: HEAR THE REST OF

HER AMAZING STORY WHEN WE

COME BACK.

DID YOU KNOW THAT THE

POPE HAS A PREACHER?

YOU'LL MEET HIM, LATER ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Wendy: EVERY DAY AT

NOON THIS WEEK, THE STAFF

FROM CBN, "OPERATION

BLESSING," AND REGENT

UNIVERSITY, WILL GATHER

TOGETHER UNDER ONE ROOF.

OUR AGENDA, SIMPLY TO PRAY

FOR YOU, OUR CBN PARTNERS.

YESTERDAY OUR FEATURED

SPEAKER WAS THE ONE AND ONLY

PAT ROBERTSON, WHO TALKED TO

US ABOUT DREAMING BIG.

Pat: WE'VE SEEN HERE AT

CBN -- WE HAD OVER

80 MILLION PEOPLE LAST YEAR

COME TO JESUS.

AND YOU THINK, THAT IS

NUTS.

WHOEVER HEARD OF THAT?

BUT WITH GOD, 80 MILLION IS

NO DIFFERENT THAN EIGHT OR

FIVE OR 10 OR ONE.

IT IS NO HARDER FOR GOD TO

SAVE ONE THAN TO SAVE

100 MILLION.

IT IS NO HARDER FOR GOD TO

PAY $100 MILLION OR A

BILLION DOLLARS THAN IT IS

$1.

IT IS GOD.

HE HAS GOT EVERYTHING.

WHY NOT DREAM BIG?

DON'T EVER DESPISE THE DAY

OF SMALL BEGINNINGS.

BECAUSE IF GOD BRINGS ON THE

SEED, THE SEED WILL GROW,

AND IT WILL GROW BEYOND

ANYTHING YOU DARE TO DREAM

POSSIBLE.

LET'S LIFT THESE REQUESTS

BEFORE GOD.

LORD, WE LIFT THEM BEFORE

YOU.

THESE ARE YOUR PEOPLE,

LORD.

THEY'RE CRYING OUT TO YOU.

THEY'RE DOWNCAST,

DOWNTRODDEN.

MAY THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON YOUR

PEOPLE DAY IN WAVES OF

GLORY.

THANK YOU, FATHER.

THANK YOU, LORD.

LET YO YOUR ANOINTING REST

UPON THESE PEOPLE, WE PRAY

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AND WE'RE GOING

TO BE PRAYING FOR YOU ALL

THROUGHOUT THIS WEEK.

IF YOU WANT US TO INTERCEDE

ON YOUR BEHALF, JUST GIVE US

A CALL.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

AND JUST TELL THE PERSON ON

THE OTHER LINE THAT YOU WANT

CBN TO PRAY FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS.

NOW, IF YOU DON'T THINK THAT

PRAYER CAN CHANGE THINGS,

YOU NEED TO MEET MARIE

SPENCER.

SHE FELT THAT WAY WHILE

SUFFERING FROM MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS.

SHE EVEN GOT OFFENDED AT THE

NOTION OF A GOD WHO CAN

HEAL.

HERE IS WHAT CHANGED HER

MIND.

I WOULD HAVE SEIZURES IN

GROCERY STORES, IN

RESTAURANTS, ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

THEY FINALLY PUT ME ON

SOMETHING THAT WOULD SLOW

THEM DOWN A LITTLE, BUT I

STILL HAD THEM THREE TO FIVE

TIMES A DAY.

Reporter: AFTER

SUFFERING A SEIZURE AT WORK,

MARIE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

SECONDARY PROGRESSIVE

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, A

DISEASE DOCTORS TOLD HER MAY

EVENTUALLY TAKE HER LIFE.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY WITNESSED

THE TOLL IT TOOK ON MARIE.

SHE WAS IN BED 24/7.

AND IF SHE WANTED TO GO

ANYWHERE, SHE HAD TO GET IN

A SCOOTER.

MARIE USED TO BE PRETTY

MUCH BEDRIDDEN.

SHE HAD CARETAKERS AROUND

THE CLOCK.

I WAS JUST EXISTING EVERY

DAY, GOING THROUGH LIFE

WITHOUT A PURPOSE OR

DESTINY.

THE NEXT STEP WAS TO PUT ME

IN A NURSING HOME.

Reporter: HER FRIEND,

JULIE, A CHRISTIAN, GAVE HER

THE BIBLE ON TAPE, AND

ENCOURAGED HER TO LISTEN.

I WOULD LISTEN TO IT OVER

AND OVER AND OVER, MATTHEW,

MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN, OVER

AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

IT KIND OF GAVE ME HOPE,

SOMETHING I NEVER HAD

BEFORE.

Reporter: MARIE STARTED

GOING TO A BIBLE STUDY WITH

HER FRIEND.

IT WAS VERY COMMON FOR

MARIE TO HAVE A SEIZURE, YOU

KNOW, DURING THE BIBLE

STUDY.

SHE SOMETIMES WOULD PASS

OUT.

HER BODY WOULD SHAKE AND

QUIVER.

AND SHE WOULD BE EXHAUSTED

AFTERWARDS.

AND THEY WOULD JUST LOVE

ME.

THEY WOULD JUST MEET ME

WHERE I WAS AT.

THEY WOULD LOVE ME AND THEY

WOULD JUST TELL ME ABOUT THE

LORD.

Reporter: HER FRIENDS

PRAYED FOR MARIE TO BE

HEALED, DESPITE HER

WORSENING CONDITION, AND

DOCTORS' GRIM PROGNOSIS.

THEY SAID, YOU KNOW GOD

CAN HEAL YOU.

THAT'S WHAT THE WOMEN WOULD

TELL ME.

AND I GOT OFFENDED.

I THOUGHT, HOW DARE YOU PUT

SO MUCH HOPE IN MY LIFE.

WE PRAYED FOR MARIE

BECAUSE WE WANTED HER

COMPLETE AND WHOLE.

AND WE BELIEVED GOD HAD MORE

FOR HER.

Reporter: BUT THE MORE

SHE LISTENED TO THE GOSPELS

AND ATTENDED BIBLE STUDY,

THE MORE SHE BECAME OPEN TO

SUPERNATURAL HEALING.

MARIE EVENTUALLY AGREED TO

GO TO A WOMEN'S AGLOW

HEALING SERVICE.

BEFORE THE SERVICE, MARIE

GOT ALONE AND PRAYED.

I PRAYED A SIMPLE

PRAYER.

LORD, I'M READY TO RECEIVE

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE FOR ME.

AND THAT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL I

SAID.

Reporter: BUT AS THE

SERVICE BEGAN, MARIE HAD THE

WORST SEIZURE OF HER LIFE.

I ENDED UP ON THE FLOOR.

AND MY FRIEND SAID, GOD'S

GOT THIS.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

HE'S GOT THIS.

AND THE LADIES CAME OVER AND

PRAYED FOR ME, AND JESUS

TOOK THE SEIZURE AWAY.

Reporter: MARIE ASKED

TO RECEIVE JESUS INTO HER

LIFE, AND ALSO PRAYED TO BE

COMPLETELY HEALED OF M.S.

IMMEDIATELY SHE SAYS SHE

FELT SOMETHING LEAVE HER

BODY.

AND SHE LOOKED AT ME

STRAIGHT IN THE EYE, AND SHE

SAID, YOU SPIRIT OF M.S.,

YOU COME OUT OF HER RIGHT

NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS

CHRIST.

IT CAME OUT RIGHT OUT OF THE

SIDE OF MY HEAD.

I GOT UP AND WALKED VERY

QUICKLY, AND THEN I WENT

INTO THE HALLWAY, AND I RAN

AS FAST AS I COULD, BACK AND

FORTH, BACK AND FORTH, AND

AS I WAS RUNNING, THE HOLY

SPIRIT WAS TELLING ME YOU'RE

HEALED, YOU'RE HEALED.

IT WAS INCREDIBLE.

ONE MINUTE I'M NOT WALKING

OR TALKING, AND THE NEXT

MINUTE I'M LIKE I AM NOW, NO

SEIZURES.

I REMEMBER WHEN MY MOTHER

CAME HOME AND SAID SHE WAS

HEALED, AND MY BROTHERS AND

I WERE, LIKE, WHAT?

AND SHE KEPT WALKING AROUND

AND WE KEPT TELLING HER NOT

TO DO THAT, BUT SHE WAS

HEALED.

I KNEW MARIE BEFORE, AND

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE, BUT GOD

CAN DO THAT.

Reporter: MARIE SAYS

HER ENTIRE LIFE HAS CHANGED

SINCE HER HEALING.

SHE IS ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN

HEALING MINISTRIES, AND

TAKES MISSION TRIPS TO

CANADA.

JESUS IS LIVING IN ME.

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS DOING

THE WORK.

IT IS A LOT BETTER,

DEFINITELY.

IT IS AWESOME TO SEE WHO

SHE IS NOW.

SHE'S OUT MINISTERING TO

PEOPLE, AND GOD'S USING

HER.

I HAVEN'T HAD A SEIZURE

IN EIGHT YEARS.

NO MATTER WHAT DISEASE OR

DISORDER, JESUS IS REAL.

HE IS OUR HEALER.

HE SAYS IT IN HIS WORD.

I BELIEVED HIM AND I

RECEIVED IT.

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

AND SAYS "YOU ARE," NOT "WE

MIGHT BE."

"WE ARE" AND I HAPPEN TO

BELIEVE THAT.

Wendy: INCREDIBLE.

INCREDIBLE.

Pat: AND YOU HEAR WHAT

THE LADY WAS PRAYING FOR,

YOU FOUL SPIRIT OF M.S.,

LEAVE HER, AND SHE FELT

SOMETHING LEAVE HER BODY.

I DO BELIEVE THERE IS A

SPIRITUAL COMPONENT IN THIS

PARTICULAR MALADY.

I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE SET

FREE.

I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE WHO HAD

THIS THING AND THEY WERE SET

FREE.

THEY CAME IN A WHEELCHAIR,

AND THEY LEFT THE MEETING

PUSHING THE WHEELCHAIR THAT

THEY CAME IN.

A LOT OF DISEASE IS CAUSED

BY ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS.

YOU KNOW, VIRUSES AND

BACTERIA AND FUNGUS, ETC.,

ETC.

BUT THERE ARE SOME THAT A

SPIRIT OF INFIRMITY COMES

UPON PEOPLE.

IN HER CASE, THE WOMAN WHO

PRAYED FOR HER SAID, YOU

FOUL SPIRIT OF M.S., LEAVE

HER.

AND THAT WAS THE TESTIMONY

OF THAT WOMAN.

Wendy: I WAS IN NEW

ORLEANS, AND A WOMAN WAS NOT

BREATHING.

AND THEY SAID, CALL 9-1-1.

AND I WALKED UP TO HER

BOYFRIEND, AND I SAID, CAN I

PRAY FOR HER.

AND HE NODDED.

AND I STARTED PRAYING, AND

NOTHING HAPPENED.

SO I SAID, SPIRIT OF

INFIRMITY, COME OUT.

AND SHE THREW UP AND SHE WAS

OKAY.

Pat: HE CA KNEW IN

SOME CASES IT WAS ATTITUDE,

AND IN SOME CASES IT WAS

DISEASE, AND IN SOME CASES

IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE.

AND HE KNEW BECAUSE HE WAS

THE SON OF GOD.

THIS IS A HEALING FOR A

FATHER AND SON, AND THEY

WERE BOTH PUT ON DIALYSIS.

AND SOMEBODY SAID, I JUST

TURNED 69 AND I FEEL

WORTHLESS, AND I NEED TO

KNOW WHAT MY DESTINY IS.

WELL, YOUR DESTINY IS TO

LIVE A FEW MORE YEARS.

Wendy: YOU'RE YOUNG.

ASK FOR YOUR MOUNTAIN.

Pat: SOMEBODY SAYS, I'M

ASKING FOR DELIVERANCE FROM

ALCOHOLISM.

IT IS THE FIRST TIME AN

80-YEAR-OLD HAS EVER MADE

THIS REQUEST.

HE HAS BEEN 60 YEARS GRIPPED

BY ALCOHOL.

81 YEARS TOLD.

Wendy: MY FAMILY AND I

NEED CONTINUED FAITH AS WE

MOURN THE LOSS OF MY

HUSBAND.

A GREAT GRANDSON BORN,

ADDICTED TO HEROIN, AND BABY

AND PARENTS BOTH NEED TO BE

DELIVERED.

AND HEALING FROM C.O.P.D. IN

THE POPE IS THE HEAD OF THE

WORLD'S ONE BILLION

CATHOLICS, BUT WHO IS THE

HEAD OF THE POPE?

WE'RE GOING TO MEET HIS

PASTOR, NEXT.

WELCOME BACK TO WE

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY

NOW SHARES A SPIRITUAL

CONNECTION WITH SAM HOUSTON,

ONE OF HIS POLITICAL HEROS.

THEY WERE BAPTIZED IN THE

SAME BODY OF WATER.

PERRY WAS DUNKED LAST MONTH

NEAR THE SMALL TOWN OF

INDEPENDENCE.

IT IS THE SAME SPOT WHERE

HOUSTON WAS BAPTIZED BEFORE

BECOMING THE SEVENTH

GOVERNOR OF TEXAS IN 1859.

PERRY LEAVES OFFICE IN

JANUARY, AND HASN'T RULED

OUT ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL RUN

IN 2016.

TURKEY PLANS TO ASK THE

UNITED STATES TO EXTRADITE

AN ISLAMIC PRIME MINISTER.

HE AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE

ACCUSED OF INFILTRATING

TURKISH POLICE AND

CORRUPTION.

THE 73-YEAR-OLD CURRENTLY

LIVES IN PENNSYLVANIA.

CBN'S ERICK STAKELBECK HAS

REPORTED ON GALAN'S

WORLDWIDE ISLAMIC MOVEMENT

AND HIS EFFORTS TO UNDERMINE

THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT.

YOU CAN FIND THAT STORY AND

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: A FEW WEEKS AGO,

THE NEW POPE OF ROME,

FRANCIS, SHOCKED THE

CONGREGATION INSIDE ST.

PETER'S BASILICA.

HE WALKED TO THE

CONFIDENTIAL, KNELT BEFORE A

PRIEST, AND SPENT SEVERAL

MINUTES CONFESSING HIS

SINS.

THAT EVENT MADE HEADLINES

AROUND THE WORLD.

BUT OUR NEXT GUEST WAS NOT

SURPRISED BY THE POPE'S

ACTION BECAUSE HE HAS HEARD

THE CONFESSIONS OF A POPE

BEFORE.

Reporter: FOR OVER 30

YEARS, THIS FATHER HAS BEEN

DOING SOMETHING NO ONE ELSE

IN THE WORLD IS ALLOWED TO

DO, PREACH TO THE POPE.

HE WAS APPOINTED PREACHER TO

THE PAPAL HOUSEHOLD BY POPE

JOHN PAUL II.

HE STARTED PREACHING IN

1978, AFTER HAVING WHAT HE

CALLS A CHARISMATIC

EXPERIENCE.

AND NOW HE IS PART OF A

MOVEMENT WITHIN THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

THE FATHER BELIEVES THAT

CHARISMATIC RENEWAL IS KEY

TO TRANSFORMING THE CHURCH

AND THE CHRISTIAN LIFE.

Pat: IT IS AN AMAZING

THING THAT IS HAPPENING IN

THAT GREAT BODY OF FAITH.

THE FATHER IS HERE WITH US

NOW, AND WE WELCOME HIM TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

FATHER, IT IS OUR DELIGHT TO

HAVE YOU WITH US.

WELCOME.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR INVITING ME.

Pat: HOW DID YOU BECOME

THE PASTOR TO THE POPE?

WELL, IN MY CASE "PASTOR"

MEANS PREACHER.

I PREACH TO THE POPE.

Pat: YOU PREACH TO THE

POPE.

WELL, IT IS AN

ESTABLISHED MINISTRY IN THE

VATICAN.

I CAN BE PREACHER TO THE

PAPAL, WHICH MEANS I GIVE A

MEDITATION EVERY FRIDAY

MORNING IN LENT, AND TWO

SEASONS OF THE YEAR, TO THE

POPE, TO THE CARDINALS, AND

OTHER PEOPLE, ABOUT 60 OR 70

PEOPLE.

I STARTED WITH POPE JOHN

PAUL THPOPE JOHN PAUL II.

AND ALSO POPE FRANCIS.

IT IS MY SMALL CONTRIBUTION.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THE

CONFESSION?

A POPE COMES TO YOU IN A

CONFIDENTIAL AND CONFESSES

HIS SINS TO YOU?

NO.

THE CONFESSOR IS A DIFFERENT

PERSON.

IT IS NOT THE SAME PERSON.

BUT I HAVE THE POSSIBILITY

OF SHARING WITH THE POPE

AFTER THE CEREMONY.

IT WILL APPLY TO HIMSELF OR

COMMEND UPON THE SERMON.

WITH THE POPE FRANCIS, I

HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF

KNOWING HIM BEFORE.

I PREACHED TWO RETREATS TO

HIM IN BUENAS AIRES.

THERE WERE 90 PRIESTS AND 50

EVANGELICAL PASTORS.

AND THEN WE HAD A MEETING, A

BIG CHARISMATIC RALLY IN

BUENOS AIRES.

AND HE WOULD KNEEL DOWN AND

LET THE CATHOLIC PASTORS

PRAY OVER HIM.

HE IS VERY WELL ACQUAINTED

WITH WHAT IS GOING ON.

Pat: THE POPE IS IN

FAVOR OF THE CHARISMATIC

RENEWAL?

ALL OF THE POPES HAVE

BEEN VERY, VERY MUCH IN

FAVOR.

THEY SAID, THIS IS A CHANCE

FOR THE CHURCH.

BUT, AS USUAL, IT IS

DIFFICULT TO LET THE COUNT

APPROVE, FROM THE HEAD TO

THE MEMBERS OF THE BODY.

SO NOT EVERYBODY IN THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS THE SAME

FEELING ABOUT THE

CHARISMATIC RENEWAL.

BUT CERTAINLY NOBODY WOULD

OBJECT OR SAY IT IS

SOMETHING --

Pat: NOT OF GOD.

-- EVIL, NO, NO.

BUT NOT EVERYBODY IS READY

TO HEAL TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Pat: WELL, IN YOUR

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, YOU

WERE FILLED WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?

WELL, I OWE THIS TO THE

UNITED STATES BECAUSE

SOMEBODY OFFERED 40 GUESTS

TO COME TO A BIG RALLY IN

KANSAS CITY, BACK IN 1977.

ONE OF THE TICKETS WAS

OFFERED TO ME.

I ATTEND THIS BIG RALLY.

AND AFTER THAT, WE MOVED TO

NEW JERSEY.

AND THERE THE LORD CONVINCED

ME THAT IN SPITE OF MY BEING

BAPTIZED, CONFIRMED, AND

BEING A PRIEST, I HAD TO

KNEEL DOWN AND TO ASK THE

PASTORS TO PRAY OVER ME FOR

A NEW RELEASE OF THE

SPIRIT.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT MY LIFE

HAS CHANGED.

I USED TO BE A PROFESSOR AT

THE UNIVERSITY OF MILLAN.

AND THE LORD HAS CALLED ME

TO LEAVE EVERYTHING AND TO

BECOME A PREACHER OF THE

GOSPEL.

AND I, LITTLE BY LITTLE,

STARTED DISCOVERING THE

GRACE OF THE UNITY OF THE

CHRISTIANS.

I WAS APPOINTED A MEMBER OF

THE CATHOLIC DELEGATION FOR

THE DIALOGUE WITH

PENTECOSTAL CHURCHES FOR 11

YEARS.

AND IMAGINE THE ONE WHO

SUGGESTED MY NAME TO THE

VATICAN.

Pat: IT WAS A DEAR

FRIEND --

YES, WHO SUGGESTED THE

VATICAN TO JOIN ME.

THE GRACE OF OUR PREACHING

THE GOSPEL, AND THE GRACE OF

THE UNITY OF CHRISTIANS, FOR

ME, HAS BEEN MY SURRENDERING

THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Pat: THE FACT YOU'RE

HERE AT REGENT, AND WE'RE

HAVING A UNITY CONFERENCE OF

CLERGY -- DO YOU FEEL THAT

IS WHAT IS HAPPENING?

I HAVE HOPED FOR THAT AND

PRAYED FOR IT MYSELF, THAT

THERE WOULD BE A UNITY THAT

GOD'S PEOPLE WOULD COME

TOGETHER IN FAITH.

AND THAT'S HAPPENING, ISN'T

IT?

WE ONLY HAVE TO LOOK AT

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LAST 50

YEARS.

Pat: YES.

THE WAY WE HAVE GROWN.

SO THIS ALLOWS US TO HOPE

FOR THE FUTURE, AT THE

MOMENT WE REACH ITS END,

WHICH IS A FULL UNITY.

UNITY AND DIVERSITIY.

MAYBE WE MUST ACCEPT A

LARGER DIVERSITIY.

THIS IS THE PROBLEM.

Pat: WE'RE FACED WITH

SO MANY ATTACKS, SO MANY

CHALLENGES TO HISTORIC

CHRISTIANITY, WE HAVE TO

COME TOGETHER, DON'T WE?

WE HAVE TO.

I WILL MENTION THIS HERE

IN MY MINISTRY, THE SIXth

SESSION OF THE REFORMATION

SHOULD BE THE OCCASION FOR A

LEAP FOR THE WORLD.

NOT TO FORGET WHAT THE

REFORMATION HAS BROUGHT TO

THE CHURCH, BUT TO MAKE IT

AVAILABLE FOR ALL

CHRISTIANITY.

THIS WOULD BE THE JOY OF

LUTHERAN IN HEAVEN, THAT

EVERY CHRISTIAN CAN SHARE.

OF COURSE, WE LIVE IN A

DIFFERENT SOCIETY.

THE PROBLEMS OF THE TIME OF

LUTHER ARE NOT THE SAME AS

TODAY.

FOR US IT WOULD BE SILLY FOR

US TO STAY IN OUR STRUGGLES

AND NOT TO SEE THE NEEDS OF

THE WHOLE SOCIETY TODAY,

WHICH SCARCELY KNOWS JESUS.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

TOGETHER WE'LL MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

FATHER, YOU'RE A BLESSING TO

HAVE WITH US.

WE PRAY FOR YOU AND THE WORK

YOU'RE DOING.

MAY YOUR MINISTRY TO THE

POPE BE BLESSED AND ANOINTED

BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THANK YOU.

YOU ARE WELCOME.

THANK YOU FOR INVITING ME TO

SHARE WITH YOU.

Pat: I'M HONORED YOU'RE

HERE.

YOU CAN HEAR MORE FROM OUR

GUEST BY GOING TO

CBN.COM.

AT NOON, EASTERN TIME,

FATHER RENERO WILL BE

SPEAKING DURING OUR CHAPEL

SERVICE.

HERE IS WENDY WITH MORE.

Wendy: THERE IS MORE ON

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

UP NEXT, TIME TO "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAILS.

CHRISTA SAYS, "WHY DO SO

MANY RETIREMENT PLANS

CONTAIN ANNUITIES?

ARE THEY GOOD INVESTMENTS?"

STAY TUNED FOR ANSWERS TO

THAT QUESTION AND MORE,

LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT ON"

WITH YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS,

AND CALISTA WRITES, "I HAVE

A COUPLE OF ANNUITIES IN MY

PORTFOLIO, I'M WONDERING WHY

SO MANY RETIREMENT PLANNERS

WANT TO USE THESE.

THE PLANNER KEEPS TELLING ME

THEY ARE GOOD TO HAVE, BUT

IT SEEMS LIKE THAT IS THE

ONLY EXPLANATION I GET."

PAT, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Pat: THE ANNUITY IS

GOOD FOR HIM.

THE SALESMEN FOR THE

INSURANCE COMPANIES GET A

BIG PAYMENT ON THE FIRST

PAYMENT OF AN ANNUITY.

MAYBE EVEN A COUPLE OF

PAYMENTS.

THEY COULD GET UP TO 60% OF

THE TOTAL AMOUNT.

SO SELLING ANNUITIES IS

THEIR LIFE BLOOD.

OF COURSE THEY'RE GOING TO

TELL YOU IT IS GOOD.

AN ANNUITY LOCKS UP YOUR

MONEY.

YOU CAN'T GET IT OUT ONCE

YOU PUT IT IN.

YOU'RE GUARANTEED A RETURN,

BUT THE RETURNS HAVE BEEN

PRETTY SKIMPY.

THERE MAY BE FOR SOME,

ESTATE PLANNING THINGS AND

ANNUITIES, AND THERE ARE ALL

KINDS OF INSURANCE

PRODUCTS.

I CAN'T, IN A FEW SECONDS,

TALK ABOUT ALL OF THESE

VARIOUS ONES.

SO IN CERTAIN CASES, FOR TAX

PURPOSES, ETC., AN ANNUITY

IS A VERY GOOD THING.

BUT AS I SAY, IT IS MOSTLY

GOOD FOR THE PERSON SELLING

IT.

Wendy: JAMES

WRITES, "WHEN I FALL UNDER

THE ANOINTING OF GOD, I

OFTEN SHAKE AND MOVE AROUND

THE CHURCH.

I WAS SURPRISED WHEN ONE

PASTOR TOLD ME THIS IS NOT

THE SPIRIT OF GOD.

NOW I'M CONFUSED.

AM I DOING SOMETHING

WRONG?"

Pat: I CAN'T TELL

SOMEBODY IT IS NOT OF GOD.

HOW DOES THAT PASTOR KNOW

WHAT IS OF GOD.

I DO THINK THE SHAKING AND

BARKING AND SO FORTH IS THE

FLESH RESISTING THE SPIRIT.

Wendy: IS THE FLESH

RESISTING OR REACTING?

Pat: WELL, IT IS BOTH,

RESISTING AND REACTING.

IT IS LIKE WHAT DO YOU WANT

WHEN YOU HAVE ELECTRICITY,

DO YOU WANT THE CONDUCTOR TO

GET ALL HOT, OR DO YOU WANT

THE ELECTRICITY TO FLOW

THROUGH AND START AN JEAN.

AN ENGINE.

YOU NEVER SAW JESUS SHAKING

AND BARKING.

WHAT ELSE?

Wendy: WENDY WRITES --

NOT ME -- "I JUST WATCHED

THE STORY ABOUT A COUPLE IN

A CAR FIRE AND HOW AN ANGEL

TOOK HER TO HEAVEN.

SHE SAID SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHY

GOD SAVED HER, BUT SHE IS

GRATEFUL.

I WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT A

FEW MONTHS AGO AND ACTIVELY

DIED.

I WAS NOT GRATEFUL THAT GOD

SAVED ME.

IT IS NOT BECAUSE I HAVE

PERMANENT DAMAGES, BUT I

SHOULD JUST BE THRILLED THAT

HE USED THIS TO PROVE

MIRACLES HAPPEN, BUT I'M

NOT.

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST,

I THOUGHT, WAS CLOSE.

WHY AM I SO DISAPPOINTED.

I SHOULD BE DEAD, AND I'M

WALKING AND SHOULD BE

THRILLED, BUT I'M NOT."

Pat: IF YOU'VE BEEN TO

HEAVEN, WHY WOULD YOU BE

THRILLED TO COME BACK TO

EARTH.

IT IS PERFECTLY NATURAL, IF

SOMEBODY HAS REALLY TASTED

HEAVEN -- THE IDEA IS DON'T

SEND ME BACK.

WELL, I'M SENDING YOU BACK

BECAUSE YOU HAVE WORK TO BE

DONE HERE ON EARTH.

BUT THE EARTH IS FILLED WITH

PAIN AND SUFFERING AND

HEARTACHE AND DIFFICULTY.

AND HEAVEN IS A PLACE OF

BEAUTY AND PEACE AND JOY AND

NO TEARS.

OF COURSE YOU'D LIKE THAT

BETTER.

YOU'RE ASKING, WHY DO YOU

FEEL THAT WAY?

THAT'S HOW COME.

Wendy: KAREEM

WRITES, "MY DAUGHTER DOESN'T

BELIEVE IN GIFTS FROM GOD OR

VISIONS.

I TRIED TO GET HER TO GO TO

THE MOVIE "HEAVEN IS FOR

REAL," BUT SHE REFUSES.

I WAS HEALED, BUT SHE

DOESN'T BELIEVE IN BEING

HEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

SHE GOES TO A BAPTIST

CHURCH.

WHAT DO THEY TEACH?

AND DO THEY NOT BELIEVE IN

THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

AND HEALING?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW WHAT

BAPTIST CHURCH SHE IS GOING

TO.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT

CHURCH BELIEVES.

BUT THERE ARE MANY OF THEM

THAT DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE

LORD DOES MIRACULOUS THINGS

TODAY.

THEY TEACH THAT IT IS AFTER

THE FIRST 100 YEARS.

WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS, JESUS

CHRIST IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

AND THOSE OF US WHO HAVE

EXPERIENCED HIS POWER NOW

VERY WELL.

YOU KNOW THE SAME THING.

I WOULD JUST PRAY FOR YOUR

DAUGHTER, LOVE HER, AND

THAT'S -- SHE IS BEING

TAUGHT IN SOME BAPTIST

CHURCH THAT ANYBODY WHO

BELIEVES IN MIRACLES IS PART

OF A CULT.

WELL, THEY'RE WRONG, BUT SO

WHAT.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

SHE IS YOUR DAUGHTER.

YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR

BRINGING HER UP.

IF SHE WAS BROUGHT UP IN AN

ATMOSPHERE OF LOVE, JOY, AND

ANOINTING, SHE WOULD HAVE

BELIEVED IN MIRACLES.

MY CHILDREN BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES AND MY

GRANDCHILDREN BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES.

Wendy: IT IS RIGHT IN

THE BIBLE.

Pat: BUT THEY CUT THE

BIBLE OUT BY DOING THAT.

Wendy: THIS MAN WRITES,

"MY FRIEND SAYS BECAUSE I

SPOKEN OUT AGAINST ABORTION

AND PUBLICLY FUNDED

CONTRACEPTIVE SERVICES,

KARMA WILL GET ME, AND MY

FIRSTBORN CHILD WILL BE A

GIRL."

Pat: YOU'RE ON A WHEEL

OF FATE, AND THE WAY YOU

LIVE IN THIS NEXT LIFE IS

MENTAL PSYCHOSIS OR

REINCARNATION, AND YOU'LL

COME BACK AT SOMETHING

ELSE -- THEY SAY IN

KATHMANDU, WHY DO THEY BEAT

THE DOGS?

WHY?

BECAUSE THEY THINK THE DOG

IS SOMEBODY WHO LIVED IN A

PREVIOUS LIFE AND THAT HE OR

SHE MISBEHAVED AND THEREFORE

CAME BACK AS A DOG, AND

THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE THAT

DOG VERY UNHAPPY SO THEY

DON'T DO IT AGAIN.

Wendy: THOSE POOR

DOGS.

Pat: IT IS THE HEART OF

HINDUISM, AND IT IS

REINCARNATION.

THAT'S WHAT THE KARMA THING

IS.

YOU HEAR A LOT ABOUT KARMA.

IT IS THE FAITH THAT

ATTACHES TO YOU IN YOUR NEXT

LIFE.

IT DOESN'T HAPPEN.

IT IS NOT BIBLICAL.

THANK YOU FOR WATCHING

TODAY'S EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE LEAVE YOU WITH OUR POWER

MINUTE FROM JEREMIAH: "I

WILL RESTORE HEALTH TO YOU

AND HEAL YOU OF YOUR WOUNDS,

SAYS THE LORD."

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING

YOU AGAIN ON TOMORROW'S

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

GOOD-BYE.

GOD BLESS YOU.
