FULL-BLOWN SHELL SHOCK.

WINNING THE BATTLE.

REAL MAN.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

IMAGINE THAT ONE DAY YOUR

DAUGHTER, YOUR PRECIOUS

LITTLE GIRL, JUST DOESN'T

COME HOME FROM SCHOOL.

BUT YOU FIND OUT THAT SHE

HAS BEEN ABDUCTED BY ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS.

WELL, YOU SAY IT CAN'T

HAPPEN HERE -- LET'S HOPE IT

NEVER DOES.

BUT THAT NIGHTMARE IS ALL

TOO REAL FOR FAMILIES IN THE

NATION OF NIGERIA AFTER A

GROUP CALLED BOKO HARAM

KIDNAPPED MORE THAN 300

GIRLS.

Wendy: THE U.S. IS

SENDING HELP TO NIGERIA IN

HOPES OF FINDING THOSE

SCHOOL GIRLS, AS THE CRISIS

IS GAINING WORLDWIDE

ATTENTION.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: BOKO HARAM

TOOK ANOTHER 11 GIRLS

CAPTIVE MONDAY NIGHT, ON TOP

OF THE 276 THEY'RE STILL

HOLDING, AFTER A RAID ON A

SCHOOL THE THREE WEEKS

AGO.

BOKO HARAM'S GOAL IS TO

ESTABLISH AN ISLAMIC

CALIPHATE IN NIGERIA WITH

SHARI'A LAW.

AND THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

AND MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN

KILLED.

THIS IS THEIR LEADER,

BRAGGING ABOUT THE

KIDNAPPINGS.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

AS MORE TIME GOES BY, I

THINK THE LESS LIKELY IT IS

THAT THEY WILL BE RESCUED.

Reporter: THIS GIRL IS

ONE OF 53 WHO ESCAPED.

SHE SAYS, WE THOUGHT THEY

WERE SOLDIERS AND THEY ASKED

US TO BOARD THE VEHICLE,

WHICH WAS HEADED TOWARDS

AMBUR, AND MY FRIENDS AND I

JUMPED FROM THE VEHICLE AND

RAN BACK HOME BECAUSE WE

REALIZED THEY DIDN'T LOOK

INNOCENT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS THE

U.S. HAS SENT A

COLLABORATION CELL TO

NIGERIA.

President Obama:

THEY'VE ACCEPTED OUR HELP, A

COMBINATION OF MILITARY, LAW

ENFORCEMENT, AND OTHER

AGENCIES, WHO ARE GOING IN,

TRYING TO IDENTIFY WHERE, IN

FACT, THESE GIRLS MIGHT BE

AND TO PROVIDE THEM HELP.

Reporter: IN

WASHINGTON, DEMONSTRATORS

GATHERED AT THE NIGERIAN

EMBASSY, DEMANDING THAT THE

GOVERNMENT THERE DO MORE TO

FIND THE GIRLS.

NIGERIA'S GOVERNMENT SAYS IT

DOESN'T KNOW WHERE THE GIRLS

ARE AND NEEDS WESTERN HELP.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, WE NEED A

BATTALION OF SPECIAL FORCES

OF THE UNITED STATES IN

THERE TO SHOW THOSE

TERRORISTS THE WAY A REAL

POWER WORKS, AND PUT THEM

OUT OF BUSINESS.

I JUST THINK THIS IS

SHOCKING, WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

AND THEY STAND UP THERE WITH

A RIFLE, AND HE'S SO TOUGH

BACK IN THE BUSH, WHEN HE'S

GOT A FEW LITTLE GIRLS AS

CAPTIVE.

PUT SOME REAL MEN AGAINST

HIM AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

IN OTHER NEWS, THERE IS

ANOTHER REPORT OF ISLAMIC

VIOLENCE.

THIS TIME OUT OF THE NATION

OF SUDAN.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, A

SUDANESE WAR PLANE BOMBED A

CATHOLIC HOSPITAL.

WATCH AS THIS PRIEST SPOTS

THE PLANE AND RUNS FOR COVER

WHEN THE BOMB DROPS.

THE ISLAMIC REGIME IN CARTUN

HAS WAGED WAR AGAINST BLACK

AFRICANS AND CHRISTIANS FOR

DECADES.

OMAR BASHIR IS WANTED FOR

CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.

THIS BISHOP CALLED ON BASHIR

TO PROTECT THE HOSPITAL FROM

FUTURE ATTACKS.

INTERNATIONAL LAW DEMANDS

THAT CIVILIANS ARE PROTECTED

DURING CONFLICT.

BUT THE ATTACK ON THE

HOSPITAL IS A DIRECT

VIOLATION OF THIS

HUMANITARIAN PRINCIPLE.

IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE

SACREDNESS OF ALL HUMAN

LIFE, WHICH WE MUST PROTECT

AT ALL COSTS.

Reporter: THE HOSPITAL

WAS ATTRIBUTABL AT TRIPLE

CAPACITY BECAUSE THE

GOVERNMENT HAS INCREASING

ITS ATTACKS TO DRIVE PEOPLE

FROM THE REGION.

ONE PERSON WAS INJURED IN

THE BOMBING.

HERE AT HOME, CRITICS ARE

CALLING THE NEW WHITE HOUSE

REPORT ON CLIMATE CHANGE

ALARMIST.

REPUBLICANS BELIEVE

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL USE IT

TO PUSH NEW RESTRICTIONS ON

THE ENERGY COMMISSION.

I'M SURE HE'LL GET LOUD

CHEERS FROM LIBERAL ELET'S,

FROM THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO

LEAVE A GIANT CARBON

FOOTPRINT AND LECTURE

EVERYBODY ELSE ABOUT

LOW-FLOW TOILETS.

Reporter: AND

McCONNELL SAID MORE

REGULATIONS REALLY WOULDN'T

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

EVEN IF WE WERE TO ENACT

THE KIND OF REGULATIONS THE

PRESIDENT WANTS SO BADLY, IT

WOULD BE UNLIKELY TO

MEANINGFUL IMPACT GLOBAL E

EMISSIONS UNLESS OTHER

COUNTRIES DO THE SAME.

THAT MEANS GETTING COUNTRIES

LIKE CHINA AND INDIA ON

BOARD.

THE PRESIDENT KNOWS THAT.

AND THE PRESIDENT KNOWS MUCH

OF THE PAIN OF IMPOSING SUCH

REGULATIONS WILL BE BORNE BY

OUR OWN MIDDLE CLASS.

Reporter: A RECENT POLL

FOUND OUT THAT CLIMATE

CHANGE RANKED ALMOST LAST OF

THE 15 TOP ISSUES.

51% SAY THEY WORRY ABOUT IT

A LITTLE OR NOT AT ALL.

THEY SEE IT AS SETTING THE

GROUND WORK FOR MORE

RESTRICTIONS PI RESTRICTION

BY THE ADMINISTRATION.

Pat: IT IS A BODY BLOW

AND IT IS PART OF THE

PLAYBOOK OF OBAMA'S MENTOR.

THIS IS THE WAY THEY WANT TO

DESTROY AMERICA.

IT IS NOT SET UP TO REALLY

CURB GLOBAL WARMING.

HOW CAN YOU CURB EMISSIONS

WHEN THE CHINESE ARE POURING

MORE AND MORE -- WHAT DID

THEY SAY, ABOUT ONE A WEEK A

NEW COAL PLANT COMES ON LINE

IN EITHER CHINA OR INDIA.

THEY'RE TAKING THE COAL FROM

AMERICA AND PUTTING IT INTO

THEIR PLANTS AND PUMPING IT

INTO THE ATMOSPHERE.

WE LIVE ON ONE GLOBE.

SO THE UNITED STATES CUTS

BACK ON ITS ENERGY, AND

CAUSES THE MIDDLE CLASS TO

PAY MORE FOR ELECTRICITY.

WHAT HAVE WE ACCOMPLISHED?

ALL WE HAVE DONE IS WEAKENED

OUR COUNTRY.

IT MAKES NO SENSE.

BUT IT IS HIGH ON THE AGENDA

OF THE RADICALS WHO WANT TO

DESTROY AMERICA.

IT IS NOT HIGH ON THE AGENDA

ABOUT THOSE WHO CARE WHAT

GOES ON IN LIFE.

Reporter: PAT, FEWER

AND FEWER NEW BUSINESSES ARE

BEING CREATED HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

THAT COULD MEAN A WEAK

ECONOMY IN THE YEARS AHEAD.

THANEW BUSINESSES ARE A KEY

FACTOR IN SUSTAINED ECONOMIC

GROWTH AND CREATING NEW

JOBS.

THE GROWTH OF NEW BUSINESSES

HAVE BEEN FALLING IN

PRACTICALLY EVERY 50

STATES.

THE AUTHORS SAY THEY DON'T

KNOW WHY THE NUMBER OF NEW

BUSINESSES HAS FALLEN OFF,

BUT IT IMPLIES THE ECONOMY

WILL CONTINUE TO GROW SLOWLY

FOR THE INDEFINITE FUTURE.

ISRAEL HAS EXISTED FOR

THOUSANDS OF YEARS, BUT AS A

MODERN NATION, IT IS

RELATIVELY YOUNG.

ON TUESDAY, THE STATE TURNED

66 YEARS OLD.

BUT NOW NOW A UNIQUE

PROJECT IS UNDER WAY TO

BRING US THE HISTORY.

THIS IS WHAT IS CALLED "THE

ISRAEL CHRONICLES."

THE PROJECT IS CALLED THE

CHRONICLES OF ISRAEL.

WHICH IS A PROJECT WHICH IS

DEDICATED TO RECORDING THE

FIRSTHAND STORIES OF PEOPLE

WHO EITHER WERE INVOLVED IN

ISRAEL'S WAR OF

INDEPENDENCE, OR THE

PRE-STATE ERA, OR SIMPLY

WITNESSES TO THE DIFFERENT

ASPECTS OF THE FOUNDING OF

THE STATE.

Reporter: THE EXECUTIVE

DIRECTOR SAYS MANY

INTERVIEWED SUBJECTS DON'T

UNDERSTAND THAT THEIR STORY

IS SPECIAL.

THEY DON'T SEE THEMSELVES

AS HEROS.

THEY SAID, LOOK, WHAT WAS I

SUPPOSED TO DO?

THIS IS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED

TO DO AT THE TIME.

Reporter: ALAD AND

SIMER MET IN 1946 IN HALMAC,

THE JEWISH PRE-STATE.

AND THEY MARRIED DURING THE

WAR OF INDEPENDENCE.

ALAD WAS 20 YEARS OLD,

AND HE COMMANDED FATT, WHICH

ISA VERY COMPLEX

COMMUNITY.

AND HEDID IT SUCCESSFULLY.

Reporter: SO FAR THE

PROJECT HAS INTERVIEWED 700

PEOPLE, LOGGING 3,000 HOURS

OF INTERVIEW TIME.

THEY'RE HOPING TO GET

SEVERAL HUNDRED MORE

INTERVIEWS, BUT SINCE THAT

GENERATION IS AGING, TIME IS

RUNNING OUT.

SOME OF THESE PERSONAL

STORIES HAVE BEEN TURNED

INTO SHORT DOCUMENTARIES,

LIKE THIS ONE, ABOUT THE

VOTE THAT CREATED THE STATE

OF ISRAEL.

YOU SPOKE TO THE BELGIAN

AND TO THE SWEDE.

PREACHING AND EXPLAINING

WHY ALL OF THE TIME.

THERE WERE A NUMBER OF US

WORKING AT THE SAME TIME,

ALSO, AND WE'RE GETTING

VOTES.

WE SENT DOWN THERE A

PROTESTANT BY THE NAME OF

SHELDON, WHO ALSO BELIEVED

THAT THE JEWS SHOULD HAVE A

HOME LIFE.

Reporter: THE MATERIAL

WILL BE HOUSED AT ISRAEL'S

NATIONALE LIBRARY, AND

PEOPLE CAN ACCESS IT ON

ONLINE.

THEY HOPE IT WILL HELP TEACH

THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS.

PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THE

HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY.

MANY DAYS, WHEN WE WENT

TO BED, WE DIDN'T KNOW IF

WE'LL GET UP IN THE MORNING

STILL ALIVE.

AND IF THIS WHOLE SO-CALLED

COUNTRY WILL SURVIVE.

IN OUR GENERATION, WE

TALKED ABOUT "WE," AND NOT

"I."

IN THIS GENERATION NOW,

INDIVIDUALIZING EVERYTHING,

THEY LOSE A LOT.

WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO

COMPLAIN, THIS IS BAD, THAT

IS BAD -- WE HAD WORSE

SITUATIONS ALREADY, AND WE

OVER CAME IT.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

FINALLY IN HEALTH NEWS,

IF YOU'RE OBESE BY THE TIME

YOU'RE 25, YOU HAVE A MUCH

HIGHER RISK OF BEING

SEVERELY OBESE BY THE TIME

YOU'RE 35.

THAT'S THE FINDING FROM A

STUDY REPORTED BY MEDICAL

NEWS TODAY.

OBESITY HAS BEEN LINKED TO

HEART DISEASE, STROKE,

DIABETES, AND SOME CANCERS.

BUT THE STORY ADDS, THERE IS

A SILVER LINING.

PEOPLE WHO LOSE WEIGHT AT

ANY STAGE OF LIFE CAN ALSO

CUT THEIR RISK FOR ILLNESS.

PAT, IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE IS

ALWAYS HOPE TO MAKE A CHANGE

TO YOUR BODY.

Pat: DO YOU KNOW WOMEN

WHO THINK LOVE IS SHOWN AT

THE FAMILY DINNER TABLE?

Wendy: WELL, THEY SAY

THAT'S THE WAY TO A MAN'S

HEART, IS THROUGH HIS

STOMACH.

Pat: THEY THINK THE WAY

THEY SHOW LOVE FOR THEIR

LITTLE CHILDREN IS TO STUFF

THEM FULL OF FOOD, GIVE THEM

SWEETS.

AND LITTLE JOHNNIE LOVES

CHOCOLATE CAKE AND ALL OF

THAT STUFF, AND I WANT TO

MAKE JOHNNIE HAPPY.

AND LITTLE JOHNNIE IS

FEEDING WITH BOTH HANDS.

HE DOESN'T LIKE REGULAR

CEREAL.

HE WANTS SUGAR PUFFS.

Wendy: IT IS REALLY

KIND OF A FORM OF CHILD

ABUSE, ISN'T IT?

Pat: WELL, IT IS A

FULFILLMENT OF THE PARENTS'

DESIRE TO BE LOVED BY THE

CHILD.

THE WAY I DO THIS IS TO GIVE

YOU CAKE AND ICE CREAM, AND

LOTS AND LOTS OF SWEETS

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU

WANT.

AND AS A RESULT, WE'RE

KILLING THEM.

A CHILD CAN'T EAT ANYTHING

UNLESS YOU GIVE IT TO HIM.

IF YOU ONLY GIVE HIM CARROTS

AND CELERY AND BROCCOLI

SPROUTS, AND STUFF LIKE

THAT -- BRUSSEL SPROUTS AND

BROCCOLI, THAT'S WHAT HE

GETS TO EAT.

WHEN HE'S HUNGRY, HE'LL EAT

IT.

AND HE'LL LEARN TO LIKE IT.

AND HIS PSYCHE WILL GROW AT

PACE.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, HIS

BODY WILL BE STRONG.

BUT IF YOU LET HIM SIT THERE

BEHIND A COMPUTER, PLAYING

VIDEO GAMES ALL DAY LONG IN

FRONT OF A TV SET, OR

WHATEVER, YOU'LL RUIN HIM.

THAT ISN'T SHOWING LOVE.

THAT'S NOT LOVING, TO KILL

YOUR KID, SO BY THE TIME HE

IS 35 HE IS OBESE.

AND YOU SEE SOME OF THESE

CHILDREN THAT ARE OBESE --

Wendy: AND IT IS SO

MUCH HARDER WHEN YOU GET

OLDER.

COMING UP, THEY ARE WOUNDED

WARRIORS WITH SCARS YOU

CANNOT SEE.

THE CAR WOULD BACKFIRE,

AND I WOULD HIT THE DECK AND

ROLL OVER WITH AN IMAGINARY

GUN IN MY HEAD.

I COULDN'T SPEAK FOR A

WEEK.

I HAD FULL-BLOWN SHELL

SHOCK.

Wendy: MEET ONE VET WHO

IS GETTING THESE HEROS THE

HELP THEY NEED, NEXT.

Pat: WELL, WE'VE HAD A

COUPLE OF WARS THAT HAVE NOT

BEEN TERRIBLY POPULAR.

A WAR IN IRAQ, AND NOW A WAR

IN AFGHANISTAN.

AND THE ENLISTMENTS OF THE

SERVICE HAVE BEEN EXTENDED

AND EXTENDED AND EXTENDED,

AND THEY'VE GONE BACK FOR

ONE TOUR AND A SECOND TOUR

AND A THIRD TOUR.

AND DURING THAT TIME WHEN

THEY'RE IN COMBAT, THEY

NEVER KNOW WHEN AN I.E.D.

WILL COME AND BLOW THEM UP

OR A GRENADE WILL BE LOBBIED

INTO THE PLACE WHERE THEY'RE

SLEEPING -- THEY NEVER

KNOW.

TO SAY LIFE IN THE MILITARY

IS STRESSFUL IS A MAJOR

UNDERSTATEMENT.

BUT THAT STRESS CAN STAY

WITH PEOPLE, EVEN AFTER THEY

HAVE LEFT THE SERVICE.

ONE MAN IS ON A MISSION TO

HELP VETERANS HEAL THESE

SCARS.

AND THIS MAN IS DOING IT ONE

PRAYER AT A TIME.

Reporter: BEFORE

BECOMING A PRIEST, NIGEL

SPENT SEVEN YEARS AS A DRILL

INSTRUCTOR FOR ENGLAND'S

ROYAL MARINE CORPS.

HIS MILITARY SERVICE

INCLUDED COMBAT, WHERE HE

EXPERIENCED THE HORRORS OF

WAR UP CLOSE.

I WAS SHOT AT THREE

TIMES, BLOW BLOWN UP FIVE

TIMES.

AND WOUNDED IN THE HEAD.

THE BIGGEST FEAR I HAD AS A

DRILL INSTRUCTOR IS ONE OF

THE GUYS I WAS TAKING

THROUGH BASIC WOULD DIE, AND

THEN FOUR OF THEM DID.

AND THAT AFFECTED ME VERY

BADLY.

I COULDN'T SPEAK FOR WEEKS.

WITH FULL-BLOWN SHELL

SHOCK.

THERE WERE MANY TRIGGERS, A

CAR WOULD BACKFIRE, AND I

WOULD HIT THE DECK AND ROLL

OVER WITH AN IMAGINARY GUN

IN MY HAND.

Reporter: THAT ALL

CHANGED WHEN HE RECEIVED

HEALING THROUGH A SPIRITUAL

EXPERIENCE.

I WAS SUDDENLY BACK ON

THE STREET, AND GOD REALLY

DID SOMETHING WITH ME.

AND BROUGHT THE MEMORY BACK,

BUT WITH CHRIST IN THE

MEMORY.

THAT WAS THE DEFINING

MOMENTMENT.

Reporter: AFTER

RETURNING FROM WAR IN IRAQ

AND AFGHANISTAN, U.S.

MILITARY PERSONNEL HAVE BEEN

KILLING THEMSELVES IN

ALARMING NUMBERS.

AN ESTIMATED 22 VETS COMMIT

SUICIDE EVERY DAY.

PSYCHIATRISTS BLAME THE

SUICIDES ON POST-TRAUMATIC

STRESS ORDER, OR PTSD.

THIS PROJECT IS AN INTENSE

THREE-DAY RETREAT FOR COMBAT

VETERANS WHO SUFFER FROM

PTSD.

IT IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE

THEM A SAFE PLACE THAT CAN

BEGIN A HEALING PROCESS.

WE DON'T CONDEMN.

WE DON'T CONDONE.

WE LISTEN AS CHRIST WOULD

LISTEN.

WE INVITE CHRIST INTO THE

MEMORIES.

WHAT WE'RE DOING IS

REPLAYING THE D.V.D. IN

THEIR MIND, AND AT SOME

POINT STOPPING AND PUSHING

THE PAUSE BUTTON, AND HAVING

THEM LOOK AROUND FOR

CHRIST.

WHERE IS CHRIST IN THIS

MEMORY?

AND THAT IS THE KEY TO

SETTING CAPTIVES FREE FROM

MEMORIES THAT HAUNT.

AND THESE MEN AND WOMEN HAVE

BEEN HAUNTED.

Reporter: OF THE TWO

MILLION VETERANS FROM IRAQ

AND AFGHANISTAN, ESTIMATES

ARE 300,000 MAY SILENTLY

SUFFER FROM PTSD.

IF WE CAN SAVE ONE LIFE

OR HUNDREDS OF LIVES WITH

THIS MINISTRY, BRINGING

CHRIST INTO THAT WOUND,

KNOWING THAT MEMORIES CAN BE

HEALED.

THAT'S THE KEY.

Reporter: A KEY GOAL

WAS HELPING VETS DEAL WITH

THE MEMORY AND PAIN OF

TAKING A HUMAN LIFE.

GOD TOLD ME TO IGNITE THE

TRIGGER FINGER OF THIS MAN

WHO WAS A SNIPER, AND TO

ACTUALLY PUT OIL ON THE

FINGER AND SET THAT TRIGGER

FINGER FREE.

THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR, THE

10 COMMANDMENTS, THAW SHALL

NOT KILL.

AND THAT IS THOU SHALT NOT

COMMIT MURDER.

BUT IN ECCLESIASTES, THERE

IS A TIME TO KILL.

I RELEASED THIS FINGER

FOR WHAT IT HAD TO DO.

[SOBBING]

THANK YOU, JESUS.

THANK YOU FOR RELEASING THIS

RIGHT NOW.

IT IS FINISHED NOW.

IT IS FINISHED.

WELCOME HOME.

WELCOME HOME.

Reporter: JOE LONGED TO

BE FREE FROM TORMENTING

THOUGHTS FOLLOWING HIS

SERVICE IN VIETNAM.

HE SAYS HELP FROM

GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED

PROGRAMS ONLY LASTED A SHORT

TIME, SO HE DIDN'T PUT MUCH

FAITH IN THE "WELCOME HOME"

INITIATIVE.

WHEN I WENT, HONESTLY, MY

THOUGHTS ABOUT IT WAS, THIS

IS ANOTHER ONE OF THEM DEALS

WHERE I'M GOING TO GO TO

ANOTHER PROGRAM AND I'M

GOING TO LEAVE THERE JUST

LIKE I GOT THERE.

I MIGHT FEEL BETTER

SURFACELY, FOR A DAY OR TWO,

AND THEN SAME OLD, SAME

OLD.

YOU KNOW?

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I'VE

EXPERIENCED OUT OF ALL OF

THOSE COPING STUFF.

Reporter: THIS TIME

AROUND, HE SAYS, SOMETHING

CLICKED.

THERE IS A GENERAL PEACE

ABOUT THE SITUATION THAT WAS

NEVER THERE BEFORE.

AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE

ANYBODY.

AND I THINK GOD CAN REALLY,

HONESTLY USE THIS TO SHOW A

PERSON HIS REALNESS.

BECAUSE IF YOU STRUGGLEç WITH

THIS THING FOR 40 YEARS, AND

YOU SEE IT TAKEN CARE OF,

ANY PART OF IT AT ALL, U

MEAN, I MEAN, YOU'VE GOT TO

SEE GOD IN IT.

YOU CAN PROVIDE

PHYSICALLY AND NURTURE AND

EVERYTHING ELSE, BUT IF YOU

DON'T HAVE A SPIRITUAL

BACKGROUND TO REALLY HELP

PEOPLE, AND HAVE THE LORD

JUST COME IN AND REALLY

MINISTER GRAPHICALLY TO

THESE PEOPLE, THEN IT'S ONLYç

REALLY A PATCH JOB.

Reporter: MUMFORD HOPES

TO EXPAND THE PROGRAM

THROUGH CHURCHES AND OTHER

ORGANIZATIONS.

D.V.D. TEACHINGS ARE

AVAILABLE FOR GROUPS TO USE,

WITH THE HOPE THAT COMBAT

VETERANS CAN FIND THE

HEALING AND FREEDOM THEY

DESPERATELY NEED AND SO

RIGHTFULLY DESERVE.

IT IS SUCH A PRIVILEGE.

IT'S LIKE YOU'RE HOLDING A

SOUL IN YOUR HAND FOR A

MOMENT, AND YOU'RE JUST

SEEING THAT PERSON MELT AND

COME BACK TO REALITY.

Reporter: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

STORY ABOUT GENERAL PATTON,

THERE WAS A YOUNG MAN WHO

WAS SOBBING IN A HOSPITAL.

AND PATTON SAID, YOU COWARD

AND HE SLAPPED HIM.

AND THAT WAS THE SLAP HEARD

AROUND THE WORLD.

BUT IN THOSE DAYS, IF YOU

DIDN'T HAVE A WOUND YOU

COULD SEE, THEN THE GUY WAS

JUST A COWARD.

BUT IMAGINE EVERY DAY THEY

ORDER YOUR UNIT TO ATTACK,

AND EVERY DAY YOU'RE GOING

UP AGAINST A MACHINE GUN, A

MORTER, SOME ARTILLERY

ROUND.

YOU'VE GOT A GROUP OF

ENEMIES ALWAYS TRYING TO

KILL YOU EVERY DAY.

AND IT IS SMALL WONDER THAT

THESE PEOPLE FALL APART AND

DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

AND AFTER A WHILE, THEIR

BODIES AND MINDS JUST WON'T

COORDINATE.

THEY'VE USED THE TERM

"SHELL-SHOCKED," AND THEY'VE

USED THE TERM

"POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS

DISORDER," BUT IT IS REAL.

AND I'M GLAD ORGANIZATIONS

ARE FINALLY TREATING THAT.

IT IS EASY TO SAY, YOU GOT

SHOT, AND HERE IS THE WOUND

AND I'M GOING TO PATCH IT UP

AND GET THE NERVES THE WAY

THEY OUGHT TO BE.

AND THAT'S A PARTICULAR

WOUND.

AND YOU GET A PURPLE HEART

FOR IT.

BUT THE OTHER, MANY TIMES

YOU DON'T GET ANY PURPLE

HEART.

IT IS JUST THERE.

TO SEE AN ORGANIZATION DOING

SOMETHING -- IF YOU HAVE A

LOVED ONE THAT HAS BEEN IN

THIS SITUATION, IT IS SO

HARD TO PUT YOURSELF IN THAT

MAN'S MIND, INTO THIS -- OR

HER -- PSYCHE TO FIGURE OUT

WHAT WENT ON.

BUT IT IS HORRIBLE.

AND WHAT WE HAVE DONE TO

THEM IN THESE WARS IS JUST

APPALLING.

CALLING PEOPLE BACK FOR ONE

TIME, ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER

TIME, FIVE OR SIX TOURS OF

DUTY INTO A HIDEOUSLY

PROBLEMATIC TYPE OF WAR.

WE NEED TO BE GRATEFUL FOR

THEM, BUT REACH, ALSO, BACK

INTO THE VIETNAMESE WAR.

THAT WAS AN AWFUL THING.

AND THOSE MEN WERE SPIT

UPON, CURSED, REVIALED,

CALLED BABY KILLERS, BUT

THEY WERE THERE, DOING WHAT

THEY WERE ORDERED TO DO.

WE OWE THEM A GREAT DEBT OF

GRATITUDE.

Wendy: WE SURE DO.

UP NEXT, THE MAN CALLED

"MR. RAIDER," AND WE'LL SIT

DOWN WITH NFL PRO TIM BROWN

WHEN WE RETURN.

*

Wendy: WELL, ONLY EIGHT

PLAYERS IN NFL HISTORY HAVE

NABBED AT LEAST 100 TOUCHED

PASSES, ONLY SIX OF THEM

HAVE ALSO RACKED UP 14,000

RECEIVING YARDS, AND ONLY

ONE OF THEM HAS ALSO WON

COLLEGE FOOTBALL'S HEISMAN

TROPHY.

THAT PLAYER, GRID IRON

LEGEND TIM BROWN.

Reporter: TIM BROWN IS

KNOWN AS ONE OF THE BEST

WIDE RECEIVERS IN NFL

HISTORY.

IN HIS 16 SEASONS WITH THE

RAIDERS, HE EARNED NINE PRO

BOWL ELECTIONS AND SET

NUMEROUS RECORDS.

BUT TIM ALSO FACED MANY

TEMPTATIONS ON AND OFF THE

FIELD THAT CHALLENGED HIS

INTEGRITY.

IN HIS BOOK, "THE MAKING OF

A MAN," TIM SHARES HOW HE

BECAME ONE OF THE MOST

RESPECTED MEN IN FOOTBALL,

AND WHAT HE DID TO HONOR GOD

WITH HIS LIFE.

Wendy: AND TIM BROWN IS

HERE WITH US NOW.

TIM, IT IS SUCH AN HONOR TO

MEET WITH YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Wendy: I'M LOVING YOUR

BOOK, "THE MAKING OF A

MAN."

TIM, YOU GREW UP IN DALLAS.

YES.

Wendy: BY THE TIME YOU

WERE SIX, YOU WERE BURNED BY

AN IRON AND YOU HAD BEEN

STABBED -- WHAT IN THE WORLD

WAS GOING ON?

THAT'S GROWING UP IN

DALLAS.

I HAD A SISTER WHO WAS A

LITTLE DIABOLICAL WHEN IT

CAME TO FIGHTING.

SHE DIDN'T FIGHT FAIR.

Wendy: YOU DEDICATE THE

BOOK TO YOUR DAD, AND YOU

SAY, "EVEN IF I WAS SCARED

OF YOU HALF THE TIME,

WHATEVER IT TOOK TO GET IT

DONE, YOU GOT IT DONE.

I AM SO GRATEFUL TO BE YOUR

SON."

WHAT KIND OF DAD WAS HE?

MY DAD WAS A NO NONSENSE

DAD.

WHEN HE GAVE A WORD, THAT

WAS IT.

EVEN BEFORE HE DIED -- I WAS

44 YEARS OLD WHEN HE PASSED

AWAY, AND WHEN HE SPOKE, WE

DIDN'T SAY, BUT, DAD, WE

WANT TO DO THIS.

WHEN HE SAID A WORD, THAT

WAS THE END OF IT RIGHT

THERE.

Wendy: HE INSTILLED A

LOT OF RESPECT.

ABSOLUTELY.

Wendy: HE DIDN'T GO TO

CHURCH WITH YOU.

YOUR MOM TOOK YOU AND ALL OF

YOUR SIBLINGS -- THERE WERE

SEVEN KIDS --

SIX KIDS.

Wendy: AND SHE TOOK YOU

TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY?

YES.

HE WOULD GO FATHER'S DAY AND

EASTER, BUT MY MOM WAS A

MISSIONARY IN THE CHURCH.

EVERY WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY, AND

ALL DAY SUNDAY WE WERE AT

CHURCH.

Wendy: AND IS YOUR MOM

STILL LIVING?

MOM IS STILL AROUND.

LIVING AND DOING WELL, VERY

WELL, THANK GOD.

BUT DAD ALWAYS SUPPORTED US

GOING TO CHURCH.

I THINK IF HE WOULD HAVE

BEEN DIFFERENT, WE WOULD

HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT.

IF WE WOULD HAVE HAD THE

OPPORTUNITY TO STAY HOME,

MAYBE WE WOULD BE DIFFERENT

KIDS.

Wendy: WE ALWAYS TALK

ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO

HAVE A MAN IN THE HOUSE TO

KNOW HOW TO BE A MAN.

BUT WE KNOW THERE IS A LOT

OF KIDS GROWING UP THAT

DON'T HAVE FATHERS.

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR A

MOM TO TEACH HER SONS HOW TO

BE A MAN BECAUSE SOMETIMES

THAT'S THE ONLY PERSON IN

THE HOUSE THAT CAN TEACH

THEM.

IT'S A VERY DIFFICULT

THING.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HEARD

KEVIN DURANT GIVING HIS MOM

PROPS FOR WING M.B.A.

SO IT CAN BE DONE.

THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS YOU

HAVE TO GET FROM A MAN, AND

I'M SURE KEVIN GOT FROM SOME

OF HIS COACHES, AND MOM WAS

THERE TO SUPPORT HIM AND

SAYING, THIS IS WHO YOU

SHOULD BE LOOKING TO.

BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE THAT

MALE ROLE MODEL AROUND TO BE

THE MAN THAT GOD WANTS YOU

TO BE, TOO.

Wendy: LEGENDARY COACH

LOU HALT SAID YOU WERE THE

BEST MAN HE EVER COACHED.

THAT'S GREAT.

BUT WITH A LOT OF SUCCESS,

TEMPTATION CAME.

YOU WERE BROUGHT UP IN THE

CHURCH, BUT THE WOMEN WERE

EVERYWHERE FOR YOU.

AND THAT WAS A PROBLEM FOR

YOU.

THAT WAS A HUGE PROBLEM

BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T MAKE ME

WORK.

IT WAS A NO-BRAINER-TYPE

THING.

IT GOT OUT OF CONTROL.

WHEN YOU GET TO THE POINT

WHERE YOU CAN'T LOOK AT

YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR.

Wendy: YOU WERE SHAVING

IN THE DARK.

PEOPLE WERE LIKE, WHAT'S

WRONG WITH YOU, YOU DON'T

DRINK, WHY ARE YOU CUTTING

YOUR FACE?

IT WAS SOMETHING I KNEW I

HAD TO GET AWAY FROM IT, AND

THERE WAS ONLY ONE WAY TO

GET AWAY FROM IT, AND THAT

WAS THROUGH GOD.

Wendy: IN THE PROCESS

OF COMING BACK TO THE LORD,

THERE WAS A GIRL IN THE

POLKA DOT DRESS AND

EVENTUALLY BECAME YOUR

WIFE.

HER NAME IS CHARISSE.

YES.

I HAD DREMPT OF MY

PERFECT WOMAN.

AND I WAS ALREADY IN LOVE

WITH THIS WOMAN BEFORE I MET

HER, AND WHEN I MET HER, SHE

FIT EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE.

SHE IS BEAUTIFUL, AND SHE

CAN COOK -- BEING A SOUTHERN

BOY, THAT IS HIGH ON THE

LIST.

Wendy: I LIKE WHAT YOU

SAID IN THE BOOK, YOU HAD

HEARD SHE COULD COOK, BUT

SHE COULD COOK.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT

CHARISSE, SHE WAS A GODLY

WOMAN.

AT THE TIME I MET HER, SHE

WAS COMING OFF A SIX MONTH

CONSECRATION.

Wendy: AND SHE DIDN'T

KNOW WHO YOU WERE ON THE

FOOTBALL FIELD.

RIGHT, AND SHE TOLD ME

SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHO I I

WAS.

Wendy: THAT HURT?

I STILL DON'T BELIEVE

HER.

Wendy: AND YOU MADE A

COMMITMENT TO ABSTAIN FROM

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE?

YES.

SHE WAS DOWN IN OAKLAND AND

I WAS IN L.A.

SO IT MADE IT EASIER.

Wendy: IN THE BOOK, YOU

SAID, I COULDN'T WAIT UNTIL

THE BOAT COULD DOCK.

YEAH.

IT IS TIME TO GO HOME.

HAVING THAT TYPE OF

RELATIONSHIP WAS TOTALLY

DIFFERENT FROM ANY

RELATIONSHIP I HAD EVER HAD

UP TO THAT PARTICULAR

POINT.

BUT GOD WAS GOOD.

HE GAVE ME EXACTLY WHAT I

NEEDED, AND THINGS WORKED

OUT GREAT.

Wendy: YOU HAVE FOUR

CHILDREN?

YES.

Wendy: HOW MANY SONS?

TWO SONS.

Wendy: TIM, YOU'VE

WRITTEN THE BOOK CALLED "THE

MAKING OF A MAN" -- AND

THERE IS YOUR GORGEOUS

FAMILY RIGHT THERE.

WHAT MAKES A MAN?

GOD'S PRINCIPLES.

YOU HAVE TO LIVE BY GOD'S

PRINCIPLES.

AND THAT'S A VERY DIFFICULT

THING BECAUSE THIS WORLD IS

TELLING US JUST THE OPPOSITE

AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT.

I TELL THEM, IF YOUR DAD

LIVED THE WAY HE WANTED TO

LIVE, THE WAY MY MIND AND MY

FLESH TELLS ME TO LIVE, YOU

GUYS CAN WALK OUT OF THE

HOUSE PROUD AND NOT ASHAMED

OF WHO YOUR DAD IS.

AND THE ONLY REASON I AM

ABLE TO DO THAT IS BECAUSE

ON A DAILY BASIS, ON A

SECOND BY SECOND BASIS, I AM

TRYING TO LIVE BY GOD'S

PRINCIPLES.

Wendy: I KNOW YOU SPEAK

EVERYWHERE.

AND WHAT DO YOU TELL YOUNG

MEN ABOUT THE WAY THEY

SHOULD TREAT WOMEN AND THE

WAY THEY SHOULD THINK ABOUT

WOMEN?

I REALLY TELL THEM THE

OPPOSITE OF WHAT I DID

GROWING UP.

BECAUSE I DON'T THINK I WAS

VERY RESPECTFUL TO WOMEN.

EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T REALLY

DISRESPECT WOMEN WHEN I LOOK

BACK ON IT.

BUT PART OF THAT TRANSITION

CAME BECAUSE I KNEW I HAD

HATE A WOMAN.

I KNEW THIS WOMAN WANTED TO

BE WITH ME, LIKE GIRLFRIEND,

BOYFRIEND, AND I WANTED NO

PARTS OF THAT.

I HAD A YOUNGER SISTER, AND

I KNEW I WOULD BE HAVING

KIDS ONE DAY, AND I DIDN'T

WANT MY KIDS TO BE IN THAT

SAME SITUATION, OR MY

DAUGHTER.

IT'S A VERY DIFFICULT THING

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WE SEE

WHAT WE WANT, AND WE WANT

WHAT WE SEE.

Wendy: AND THAT'S PART

OF MAKING A MAN, RESISTING

TEMPTATION AND MANNING UP

AND DOING THE RIGHT THING.

ABSOLUTELY.

Wendy: THERE IS SO MUCH

MORE IN THIS BOOK.

I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.

I WAS, LIKE, WENDY, YOU'VE

GOT TO GO TO SLEEP.

TIM'S BOOK IS CALLED, "THE

MAKING OF A MAN."

HOW MEN AND BOYS HONOR GOD

AND LIVE WITH INTEGRITY.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THANK YOU, TIM.

GOD BLESS YOU.

SAME TO YOU, GOD BLESS

YOU.

Wendy: ARIANA SAYS, "MY

HUSBAND AND I DISAGREE ON

MANY THEOLOGICAL THINGS AND

WE DON'T EVEN GO TO THE SAME

CHURCH.

WOULD GOD WANT ME TO BE THE

BIGGER PERSON AND GO TO MY

HUSBAND'S CHURCH?"

CHURCH?"

WE'LL TACK TELL THAT AND

MUCH MORE, LATER.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

AN OHIO TEACHER FIRED FOR

REFUSING TO REMOVE RELIGIOUS

MATERIALS FROM HER CLASSROOM

IS TAKING HIS CASE ALL THE

WAY TO THE SUPREME COURT.

HE DISPLAYED A CHRISTIAN

BOOK AND A POSTER OF A

PRESIDENT PRAYING.

THE OHIO SUPREME COURT RULED

LAST NOV NE NOVEMBER THERE

THE PUBLIC DISTRICT WAS

RIGHT TO FIRE HIM.

BUT THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE

FORCED HIM TO REMOVE HIS

PERSONAL BIBLE FROM HIS

DESK.

HOSPITAL OFFICIALS IN

COLORADO SAY MORE PEOPLE ARE

GETTING BURNED AS THEY TRY

TO EXTRACT A POTENT OIL

FOUND IN MARIJUANA.

GOLDEN HASH OIL CAN COMPRISE

UP TO 80% OF T.H.C., WHICH

IS THE PLANT'S INTOXICATING

CHEMICAL.

BUT EXTRACTING THE OIL IS A

DANGEROUS PROCESS THAT

SOMETIMES CAUSES FIRE

EXPLOSIONS.

THERE HAVE BEEN AT LEAST 31

EXPLOSIONS SINCE JANUARY,

AND SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

TREATED FOR SECOND DEGREE

AND THIRD-DEGREE BURNS.

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.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT ON"

WITH YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

AND PAT IS READY.

"MY HUSBAND IS A PRACTICING

CATHOLIC, AND I AM A

PROTESTANT, WE DON'T ATTEND

CHURCH TOGETHER, AND WE

DISAGREE ON MANY THEOLOGICAL

THINGS.

SHOULD I BE A BIGGER PERSON

AND JUST GO TO HIS CHURCH?

WHAT WOULD GOD WANT ME TO

DO?"

Pat: WHAT GOD WOULD

WANT YOU TO DO IS, THOSE WHO

WORSHIP, WORSHIP IN TRUTH.

GOD IS THE SPIRIT.

LISTEN, I CAN WORSHIP GOD IN

A CATHOLIC CHURCH AND JUST

BE BLESSED OUT OF MY SOCKS.

I'VE BEEN AT A MASS WITH THE

POPE, AND IT WAS JUST

WONDERFUL.

I CAN GO TO THE BAPTIST

CHURCH, TO THE PENTECOSTAL

CHURCH, OR ANY CHURCH WHERE

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS HONORED

AND JESUS IS HONORED AND

PEOPLE ARE WORSHIPPING GOD.

THAT'S WHAT REALLY MATTERS.

IT ISN'T THIS SUNDAY I GO

THROUGH A RITUAL, AND

THEREFORE I AM A NICE

PERSON, NO.

Wendy: BILL WRITES,

"I'VE BEEN READING THIS

NOVEL, AND I'M NOT EVEN A

QUARTER OF THE WAY THROUGH

AND I'VE REA READ THE

LORD'S NAME BEING TAKEN IN

VAIN SEVERAL TIMES.

SHOULD I THROW THE BOOK

OUT?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

WHATEVER IS NOT OF FAITH IS

SIN.

IF YOU FEEL OFFENDED BY IT,

GET RID OF THE BOOK.

YOU WON'T FIND MANY WORKS OF

FICTION THAT DON'T HAVE SEX

SCENES ABOUT EVERY SO MANY

PAGES.

THAT'S PART OF A FORMULA.

YOU'LL HAVE SO MUCH

PROFANITY.

THE NICE THING ABOUT THE MAN

THAT WROTE "THE HUNT FOR RED

OCTOBER," HE HAD ALMOST NONE

OF THAT IN HIS EARLY BOOKS,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY

FORCED HIM INTO HAVING ALL

OF THIS STUFF.

YOU CAN HAVE A HARD TIME

FINDING ANY KIND OF FICTION

THAT DOESN'T HAVE

PROFANITY.

BUT THE QUESTION IS, IF

YOU'RE PORTRAYING A

CHARACTER, AND THE CHARACTER

IS A CRIMINAL, OR A MAFIA

DON, YOU WOULD EXPECT HIM TO

USE CERTAIN NASTY WORDS.

AND IF THE AUTHOR DOESN'T

HAVING HIM SAYING THOSE

WORDS, HE ISN'T BEING TRUE

TO THE CHARACTER HE IS

TRYING TO PORTRAY.

I WON'T GO INTO ALL OF

THAT.

THAT'S TOO COMPLICATED.

IF IT OFFENDS YOU, DON'T

READ IT.

Wendy: CHRISTINE

WRITES, "I WANT TO WITNESS

TO PEOPLE, BUT I'M NOT SURE

HOW TO GET STARTED.

WHAT SCRIPTURES DO I NEED TO

TALK ABOUT?"

Pat: THERE ARE QUITE A

FEW, AND YOU NEED TO KNOW

THE BIBLE.

BUT JOHN 3: 16: "GOD SO

LOVED THE WORLD"...WHAT YOU

DO IS PRAY AND EMPATHIZE

WITH THE PROBLEM THEY ARE

TALKING ABOUT.

WHAT ARE THEY SUFFERING

FROM?

WHAT IS THE CONFUSION IN

THEIR LIFE?

YOU SAY, GOD LOVES YOU AND

GOD CAN HELP YOU, AND LET ME

PRAY FOR YOU.

IT'S NOT LET ME GIVE YOU

THIS SCRIPTURE AND THEREFORE

YOU'RE GOING TO GET SAVED.

Wendy: JAMES

WRITES, "MY QUESTION FOR YOU

IS IF GOD SAID BRING IT ON

TO PAT, WHAT QUESTION WOULD

YOU ASK GOD?

IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT IS IN

YOUR LIFE, PAT, OR IN THE

WORLD, THAT SERIOUSLY BAF

FELS YO BAFFFLES YOU AND

YOU DON'T YET HAVE AN ANSWER

FROM GOD?

THANKS FOR YOUR

LEADERSHIP".

Pat: I'M LEARNING MORE

AND MORE ABOUT THE GALAXY WE

LIVE IN.

IT IS ENORMOUS.

IT IS ONE OF MANY, MAYBE

100 MILLION GALAXIES, WE

LIVE IN.

WHAT I'M ASKING GOD IS,

WOULD YOU PLEASE SHOW ME HOW

YOU RELATE TO ALL OF THIS?

THAT'S WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO

FIND OUT.

I'M TRYING TO FIGURE, GOD

CREATED IT ALL, IT'S HUGE,

AND HOW DOES HE HANDLE IT?

I HAVE SOME THINGS THAT COME

TO MY MIND.

I'M JUST ASKING THE LORD FOR

WISDOM.

IT IS LIKE THE MAN WHO

WORKED WITH A PEANUT.

HE SAID, MR. UNIVERSE, SHOW

ME THE SECRET OF YOUR

UNIVERSE.

AND THE CREATOR SAID, LITTLE

MAN, YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND MY

UNIVERSE.

I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THE

PEANUT.

SO MAYBE GOD IS GOING TO

TEACH ME ABOUT THE PEANUT.

YOU ARE ASKING, WHAT AM I

PRAYING FOR?

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I'M

PRAYING FOR.

I WANT TO UNDERSTAND THIS

ENORMITY AND HOW DOES IT

WORK.

Wendy: THINK BIG.

A BIG QUESTION.

Pat: WHY NOT.

Wendy: VALERIE WRITES,

"THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT WHEN

WE, AS CHRISTIANS, DIE, WE

GO TO BE WITH THE LORD.

HOWEVER, THERE ARE THOSE WHO

CLAIM THERE ARE SPIRITS AND

GHOSTS ON EARTH.

ARE THESE THE SPIRITS OF

GHOSTS AND9Q THEY IN A

LIMBO?"

Pat: THAT GHOST STUFF

IS BOLOGNA.

THOSE ARE DEMONS.

THEY'LL ACT THEIR YOUR

FAMILY OR YOUR DEPARTED AUNT

SUSIE, AND SHE'LL TELL YOU

WHAT HORSE TO BET ON AND

THAT SORT OF THING.

THEY'RE DEMONIC.

THERE ARE NO SPIRITS ROVING

AROUND.

THERE ARE NO GHOSTS.

BUT THERE ARE DEMONIC

SPIRITS.

BUT IS APPOINTED TO MAN ONCE

TO DIE, AND AFTER THATç THE

JUDGMENT.

NOT THAT YOU'LL COME BACK

AND BE HAUNTED.

NO, THAT'S NOT THE BIBLE.

Wendy: ONE VIEWER

WRITES, "THE WORLD ENDS AND

JESUS TAKES ALL CHRISTIANS.

WHAT ABOUT CERTAIN PEOPLE

FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES WHO

HAVE NEVER HEARD ABOUT THE

GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST?"

GOOD QUESTION.

Pat: THE JUDGE OF ALL

OF THE EARTH WILL ALWAYS DO

WHAT'S RIGHT.

AND EVERYBODY HAS HAD A

CHANCE.

YOU KNOW, IF NOTHING ELSE,

THEY'VE SEEN THE BEAUTY OF

THE WORLD THEY LIVE IN.

THEY HAVE SEEN THE SUNRISE

AND THE SUNSET.

THEY HAVE SEEN THE SEASONS

AND THE MULTIPLICITY OF

PLANTS, AND THE BEAUTIFUL

FLOWERS AND THE BIRDS AND

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT GOD

CREATED.

THERE WAS ONE MAN WHO WAS A

MAKER OF IDOLS, AND HE

CARVED IDOLS.

AND HE BEGAN TO SAY PEOPLE

WORSHIP THESE IDOLS THAT I'M

MAKING, BUT MY HAND MAKES

THE IDOLS.

SO I WANT TO WORSHIP THE GOD

THAT MADE MY HAND.

THERE WAS SOMETHING IN HIM

THAT SAYS, LOOK, I'M MAKING

THESE IDOLS, BUT THEY'RE NOT

GOD.

BUT SOMETHING MADE MY HAND.

I WANT TO WORSHIP HIM.

THERE IS SOMETHING IN EVERY

ONE OF US THAT GOD HAS

INSTILLED ABOUT WHAT IS

RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG.

AND AT THE END OF TIME,

PEOPLE'S CONSCIENCE WILL

EXCUSE THEM OR ACCUSE THEM

IN THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST.

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOME

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

NEVERTHELESS, THE REASON

THAT GOD HAS PEOPLE LIKE US

GOING INTO THE WORLD, HE

SENDS US INTO THE WORLD TO

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS.

HERE AT CBN, WE ARE HUNDREDS

OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS.

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS.

AND BECAUSE OF TV AND THE

INTERNET AND SO FORTH.

SO HE HAS SENT OUT AN ARMY

OF PEOPLE TO TELL PEOPLE.

AND, TRUST ME, THE GOD OF

ALL THE UNIVERSE, THE JUDGE

OF ALL OF THE WORLD, WILL

ALWAYS DO RIGHT.

WENDY?

Wendy: INDEED.

WELL, WHEN CARLA'S HUSBAND

WALKED OUT, HE LEFT HER WITH

JUST $5 AND TWO CHILDREN, NO

JOB.

AND YET TODAY SHE HAS A

BRIGHT FUTURE, THANKS TO

"OPERATION BLESSING."

Reporter: THE LAST

MESSAGE CARLA RECEIVED FROM

HER HUSBAND CAME ON A PIECE

OF CARDBOARD.

HE SAID HE WAS LEAVING HER.

Translator: JUST A NOTE,

NO EXPLANATION.

I WAS DEVASTATED AND FELT SO

HELPLESS.

HE WAS GONE.

Reporter: IN AN INSTANT

CARLA BECAME A SINGLE MOTHER

OF TWO, WITH NO JOB AND $5

IN HER POCKET.

Translator: I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

I HAVE NOTHING TO FEED THE

CHILDREN.

I CRIED.

Reporter: AFTER SHE

SOLD THEIR FEW POSSESSIONS,

CARLA STARTED DOING

LAUNDRY.

BUT THAT ONLY PROVIDED

INCOME ONE TO DO DAY ONE TO

TWO DAYS A WEEK.

CARLA LOST THE HOME.

ONE DAY AFTER FINDING A

FRIEND TO STAY WITH, CARLA

MET SOMEONE FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING."

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT

GOD BROUGHT THESE KIND

PEOPLE TO ME.

Reporter: WE KNEW

CARLA'S GREATEST NEED WAS TO

PROVIDE FOR HER FAMILY.

SO WE GAVE HER A CART AND

EVERYTHING NEEDED TO START A

SMALL BUSINESS SELLING

FOOD.

Translator: IT WAS

AMAZING.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

I CRIED WHEN I SAW HOW THEY

WERE HELPING ME.

Reporter: CARLA HAS

BEEN RUNNING HER SMALL

BUSINESSES FOR SIX MONTHS.

AND EACH MONTH SHE MAKES

$600.

THIS PROVIDES HER TO RENT A

HOUSE AND PROVIDE FOR HER

CHILDREN.

WHEN PEOPLE SEE MY FOOD

CART, THEY ASK ME ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING," AND I

TELL THEM WHAT A WONDERFUL

BLESSING THEY HAVE BEEN TO

ME.

Wendy: IF YOU WOULD

LIKE TO BE A PART OF HELPING

PEOPLE, JUST LIKE THE WOMAN

YOU SAW THERE, IT IS SO

EASY.

GO TO YOUR PHONES RIGHT NOW

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE'RE

GOING TO SEND YOU, "VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT," GORDON'S NEW

TEACHING.

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, COMING UP, A PREGNANT

MOM WHO COULDN'T LIE DOWN.

I WOULD LAY IN BED AND I

WOULD TRY TO LAY ON MY RIGHT

SIDE, AND I COULDN'T DO IT

FOR MORE THAN THREE OR FOUR

MINUTES BECAUSE THERE WOULD

BE A SHARP PAIN THAT WOULD

RUN THROUGH MY HIP.

Wendy: FIND OUT HOW SHE

WAS HEALED AFTER MONTHS OF

AGONIZING PAIN, NEXT.

Pat: DOES GOD HEAL

TODAY?

WELL, LET'S FIND OUT.

AS SOON AS BILLY'S HIP

STARTED ACTING UP, BILLY

THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING TO

NEED SURGERY.

BUT SHE COULDN'T AFFORD

EXPENSIVE MEDICAL BILLS, SO

SHE FIGURED SHE WOULD JUST

HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE PAIN.

WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT SHE

DID, UNTIL THE DAY WHEN SHE

TURNED O ON A TELEVISION

PROGRAM, "THE 700 CLUB."

I BELIEVED IN GOD, I KNEW

GOD WAS GOOD, BUT I DIDN'T

KNOW HOW MUCH HE LOVED ME.

Reporter: IN APRIL OF

2013, BILLY TRAVEC, OF

TEXAS, FOUND OUT.

AT THE TIME, BILLY WAS

PREGNANT WITH HER THIRD

CHILD.

I WOULD LAY IN BED, AND I

WOULD TRY TO LAY ON MY RIGHT

SIDE, AND I COULDN'T DO IT

FOR MORE THAN THREE OR FOUR

MINUTES BECAUSE THERE WOULD

BE A SHARP PAIN IN MY HIP.

I WOULD HAVE TO TRY TO ROLL

OVER TO THE SIDE, WHICH IS

NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE WHEN

YOU'RE SEVEN MONTHS

PREGNANT.

Reporter: BILLY WOULD

OFTEN FEEL A PAINFUL CATCH

IN HER HIP.

I COULDN'T GET GOING LIKE

I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO.

IT WOULD TAKE ME SEVERAL

STEPS TO GET MOVING.

THE ONLY WAY I COULD

DESCRIBE IT IS IT DID FEEL

LIKE THE BONE WAS CRACKED.

Reporter: IN EARLY

2013, BILLY BEGAN PRAYING

FOR HER HIP TO BE HEALED.

I HAD BEEN CRYING OUT TO

GOD TO REVEAL HIMSELF IN A

WAY I NEVER EXPERIENCED

BEFORE.

I WAS WORRIED ABOUT MY

ABILITY TO LIVE MY LIFE THE

WAY I ALWAYS PLANNED TO LIVE

IT, TO BE ABLE TO RUN AND

CHASE MY CHILDREN, WITHOUT

HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT

LIMITATIONS.

Reporter: IN APRIL OF

2013, BILLY WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

TERRY GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

SHE SAID...

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A DETERIORATING HIP

SOCKET.

YOU HAVEN'T HAD ANYTHING

DONE WITH IT SURGICALLY, BUT

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

YOU'RE GOING TO SUDDENLY

NOTICE YOU'RE NOT LIMPING,

AND YOU DON'T HAVE THAT

DEEP, DEEP BONE ACHE

ANYMORE.

IMMEDIATELY I HEARD GOD'S

STILL VOICE, AND HE WAS

SAYING, THAT'S YOUR

HEALING.

AT THAT MOMENT, I DECIDED I

WAS NOT GOING TO LIMIT GOD

ANYMORE.

AND THAT I WAS GOING TO TAKE

THAT HEALING AND CLAIM IT

FOR MYSELF.

I FELT THE POWER OF GOD RUN

THROUGH MY BODYMEN BODY.

I GOT UP OFF THAT COUCH, AND

I PRAISED GOD, AND I WAS

IMMEDIATELY HEALED.

Reporter: BILLY HAS

BEEN PAIN-FREE SINCE THAT

DAY.

THAT EVENING MY HUSBAND

AND I WERE LAYING IN BED,

AND I WAS ABLE TO LAY ON MY

SIDE, WITH MY HEAD ON HIS

CHEST.

I HADN'T BEEN ABLE TO DO

THAT FOR OVER A YEAR.

THIS ALTERED MY VIEW OF GOD,

TO KNOWTHAT GOD LOVED ME

ENOUGH TO HEAL ME SO I COULD

ENJOY MY LIFE AND DO THE

LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE ME

HAPPY.

THAT IS AN AWESOME FEELING.

Pat: I THINK BILLY

WOULD SAY, YES, GOD HEALS

TODAY.

WE'VE GOT SOME OTHER

REPORTS.

Wendy: JOANNE OF TEXAS,

WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A DAMAGED

NERVE IN HER NECK, WHICH

CAUSED TERRIBLE HEADACHES.

THE DOCTOR SUGGESTED

OVER-THE-COUNTER PAIN

MEDICINE, AND TWO WEEKS

LATER, HER NECK WASN'T ANY

BETTER.

THEN WHEN WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," HE HEARD YOU, PAT,

GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

ABOUT ONGOING HEADACHES.

YOU SAID, "PUT YOUR HAND OR

YOUR NECK.

THE PAIN IS MADE WHOLE."

INSTANTLY, THE PAIN WENT

AWAY, AND JOANNE WAS ABLE TO

MOVE HER HEAD WITHOUT ANY

PAIN, AND THE HEADACHES HAVE

NOT RETURNED.

Pat: HERE IS SOMETHING

ELSE, JOHN, WHO LIVED IN

PRESCOTT, ARIZONA, DEVELOPED

CONSTANT PAIN IN HIS LEFT

KNEE.

HE LIVED WITH THE PAIN FOR

MORE THAN SIX MONTHS.

HE SAID, THE PROBLEM IS OLD

AGE.

I'M GETTING OLD AND MY KNEES

HURT.

WHILE HE WAS WATCHING, WENDY

GAVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE,

"THERE IS SOMEONE WITH A

PAINFUL KNEECAP AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU."

JOHN CLAIMED THE WORD, AND

THE PAIN LEFT, AND HE HAS

NOT HAD ANYMORE TROUBLE.

YOU DIDN'T KNOW JOHN IN PRAS

COT?

Wendy: NO, NO, BUT GOD

KNOWS HIM VERY WELL.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS.

THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE.

RIGHT NOW CLAIM YOUR

MIRACLE.

FATHER, HOW WE THANK YOU FOR

THE MIRACLE POWER OF GOD.

LORD, YOU CREATED

EVERYTHING, THIS UNIVERSE,

THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.

YOU CREATED IT ALL.

IT IS ALL YOURS.

THESE ARE YOUR CREATURES.

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE MADE IN

YOUR IMAGE, AND THEY'RE

HURTING RIGHT NOW.

A LEFT FOOT -- THERE IS A

BONE OUT OF PLACE.

AND IT REALLY HURTS EVERY

TIME YOU STEP ON IT.

REACH DOWN AND TOUCH THAT

FOOT.

THOSE BONES ARE GOING TO

MOVE INTO PLACE, AND YOU'LL

BE COMPLETELY PAIN-FREE.

Wendy: THANK YOU, GOD.

LORD, YOUR WORD SAYS THAT

YOU FORGIVE ALL OF OUR SINS

AND HEAL ALL OF OUR

DISEASES.

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE RIGHT

NOW THAT JUST NEED TO KNOW

THAT THEY'RE FORGIVEN.

WHEN THEY RECEIVE THAT

FORGIVENESS, THEY WILL BE

HEALED.

SO JUST RECEIVE THE

FORGIVENESS THAT GOD IS

EXTENDING TO YOU RIGHT NOW,

AND YOUR BODY WILL LINE UP

IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: GOD IS HEALING A

LUNG FUNGUS RIGHT NOW.

JUST COUGH AND BREATHE

DEEPLY, AND FROM THAT MOMENT

ON YOU'RE GOING TO BE HEALED

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

ALSO, SOMEBODY HAS GOT AN

ULCER.

THE LORD IS HEALING THAT

ULCER.

THE PAIN IS GOING.

YOU FEEL AN INTENSE PAIN

RIGHT NOW, BUT THE PAIN IS

LEAVING YOU BECAUSE GOD HAS

JUST TOUCHED YOU.

LORD, FOR ALL OF THOSE IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE CRYING

OUT TO YOU, ANSWER THEIR

PRAYERS, MEET THEIR NEEDS,

DO MIRACLES.

THANK YOU, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

WATCHING THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE, TAKEN FROM THE

BOOK OF JEREMIAH: "FOR I

WILL RESTORE HEALTH TO YOU

AND HEAL YOUR WOUNDS," SAYS

THE LORD.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW WHEN

A TEACHER FINDS TRUE PEACE

ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.

SEE YOU THEN.

BYE-BYE.
