Watch the 700 Club Canada for May 12, 2014 Read Transcript


WELCOME TO THE START OF

ANOTHER AMAZING WEEK ON

THE 700 CLUB CANADA. I'M

YOUR HOST, BRIAN WARREN AND

WE'RE SO GLAD THAT YOU HAVE

JOINED US. THIS WEEK WE'RE

PLEASED TO WELCOME CHRISTIAN

AUTHOR, SPEAKER, AND PASTOR

LAURIE HEARTSWORN TO THE

STUDIO TO WALK US THROUGH

GIVE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES

ON THE THINGS THAT WE CAN ALL

LEARN FROM MOTHER HOOD.

THAT'S RIGHT, ALL OF US ARE

GOING TO SIT AT THE FEET OF OUR

MOTHERS THIS WEEK AND LEARN

FROM WHAT GOD HAS TAUGHT

THEM FROM THEIR JOURNEY.

WITH LAURIE ACTING AS OUR

GUIDE ALONG THE WAY. MAKE

SURE THAT YOU TUNE INTO US

EVERY DAY THIS WEEK BECAUSE

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO WANT TO

MISS A SINGLE INTERVIEW. LATER

ON IN THE SHOW WE'LL EXPLORE

THE REASON SO MANY

ENTREPRENEURS ARE LEAVING

FRANCE AND INTRODUCE YOU TO

A PHILANDERING METH-PORN

ADDICT WHO ENDED UP HAPPILY

MARRIED. IT'S GOT TO BE A GOD

THING. FIRST UP, HERE'S LAURA

LYNN TO INTRODUCE YOU TO

LAURIE HEARTSWORN AND OUR

WEEK ON MOTHERHOOD.

WELL I HOPE THAT ALL OF

YOU BEAUTIFUL WOMEN OUT

THERE HAD A WONDERFUL

MOTHER'S DAY AND KEEPING

WITH THAT THEME WE ARE

SO BLESSED THIS WEEK. WE

ARE SO BLESSED THIS WEEK. WE

HAVE GOT LAURIE HEARTSWORN

HERE. AN INCREDIBLE STORY YOU

HAVE OF OVERCOMING. I LOVE

YOUR BOOK, FINDING FREEDOM

AND YOU WROTE THIS BOOK

AFTER GOING THROUGH A VERY

VERY CHALLENGING SEASON WITH

YOUR TEENAGE KIDS AND IT PUT

YOUR FAMILY OVER THE LOOP,

BUT YOU ARE AN AUTHOR, AND A

SPEAKER, YOU ARE A FULL TIME

PASTOR. I DON'T KNOW HOW

YOU HAVE TIME FOR MOTHERING

BUT SOMEHOW YOU ARE A

WOMAN AMONG WOMEN AND

GIVE ME A LITTLE BIT OF A

BACKGROUND ABOUT YOUR

PASSION FOR FAMILY.

WELL I'LL TELL YOU LAURA

LYNN, WHEN THE KIDS WERE

YOUNGER I WOULD HAVE

THOUGHT THAT I HAD IT ALL

FIGURED OUT.

RIGHT.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN,

LIKE WHEN YOU'RE ACTUALLY

MAYBE IN CONTROL OR THE.

AND YOU WERE A SCHOOL

TEACHER?

I WAS A SCHOOL TEACHER AND

I HAD THE ILLUSION OF BEING IN

CONTROL AND IT WAS GREAT FOR

THOSE YEARS. AND THEN YOU

KNOW, AS OUR KIDS WENT INTO

THE HIGH SCHOOL YEARS AND

EVEN MORE LATER HIGH

SCHOOL YEARS WE WERE STILL

FEELING PRETTY GOOD ABOUT

OURSELVES AND THEN

OUR WORLD JUST REALLY

STARTED TO CRUMBLE. IT

BECAME VERY EVIDENT TO US.

OUR OLDEST SON WHO WAS THAT

GOOD REALLY CHRISTIAN KID, ALL

MY KIDS WERE FOLLOWERS OF

JESUS. THEY LOVED JESUS

FROM A YOUNG AGE. HE WAS

SERVING IN A YOUTH GROUP,

HE'D BEEN AT CHRISTIAN CAMP,

HE'D BEEN ON A MISSION TRIP,

YOU KNOW, LIKE WE WERE JUST

FEELING LIKE, GOOD ABOUT OUR

PARENTING. AND THEN LITERALLY

WITHIN THREE MONTHS HE JUST

GOT INTO A COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT GROUP OF FRIENDS,

THE DRUGS, THE ALCOHOL BEGAN,

AND AS HE WOULD TELL HIS

STORY, HE BECAME A DRUG

ADDICT, ALCOHOLIC. WE LOST

OUR SON, WHAT FELT LIKE

OVERNIGHT. THE REBELLION THAT

STARTED TO SET IN, THE CHANGE

OF PERSONALITY. OUR

RELATIONSHIP WAS BREAKING

DOWN AND IT DIDN'T END THERE

LAURA LYNN, IT WAS LIKE SON

NUMBER TWO. AND THEN MY

DAUGHTER, ALL THREE OF THEM

WITHIN A VERY SHORT TIME

JUST TOOK A U-TURN IN THEIR

LIFE AND IT JUST APPEARED THAT

EVERYTHING THAT WE HAD

TAUGHT THEM, EVERYTHING THAT

WE HAD RAISED THEM,

EVERYTHING THAT WE HAD

THOUGHT THEY BELIEVED, THAT

THEY WERE JUST DISCARDING

AND THROWING BEHIND AND

INTO THE WORLD, INTO THE PARTY

SCENE, AND ADDICTION. AND ALL

OF THOSE UGLY THINGS STARTED

TO TAKE PLACE IN THEIR LIFE.

RIGHT.

VERY DEFEATING TIME OF OUR

PARENTING, YEAH.

AND THIS IS A STORY THAT WE

ARE STARTING TO HEAR TIME

AFTER TIME, AFTER TIME. I KNOW

WE RECENTLY SPOKE AT A LARGER

WOMEN'S EVEN IN SASKATOON

AND I PERSONALLY HEARD SO

MANY STORIES OF WOMEN

SAYING PLEASE, WOULD YOU

PRAY FOR MY KIDS?

YES.

LIKE THEY'RE JUST GETTING

INTO THINGS WE NEVER THOUGHT

THIS WOULD HAPPEN.

YEAH, YEAH.

AND YOU HAVE HAD THE

AWESOME PRIVILEGE OF

BASICALLY FACING THE ENEMY

DOWN WITH THE POWER OF GOD

AND YOU HAVE LEARNED SOME

SECRETS. AND I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT YOU BUT I KNOW THAT

WE ARE LOOKING AT THE

INFLUENCES THAT ARE OUT THERE,

THE CULTURE, TELEVISION, THE

INTERNET. IT IS INVADING OUR

HOMES. PARENTS ARE

DESPERATE. WHAT DID GOD

TEACH YOU IN THE VERY DIFFICULT

MOMENTS?

WELL YOU KNOW, THERE IS

THE WORLD AND THE WORLD IS

A DIFFICULT AND A BROKEN

PLACE. AND WE'RE TOLD IN

SCRIPTURE THAT SATIN IS THE

PRINCE AND THE POWER OF THE

AIR OF THIS WORLD.

AND HE'S ROAMING.

ABSOLUTELY.

LOOKING WHO HE CAN

DEVOUR.

ABSOLUTELY. I MEAN IF WE,

I WOULD SAY THAT FIRST OF ALL,

WE WERE VERY NAÏVE, WE WERE

VERY NAÏVE KIND OF I CALL IT

BUBBLE LAND IN MY TEACHING

SERIES, WE LIVED IN BUBBLE

LAND, WE KNEW THAT THE DEVIL

WAS REAL, WE KNEW THAT HE

HAD INFLUENCE, BUT HE WAS

OUT THERE SOMEWHERE.

RIGHT.

AND AS CHRISTIANS WE WERE

SOMEHOW SURROUNDED BY THIS

BUBBLE, LIKE YOU KNOW HE

JUST COULDN'T PENETRATE AND

REALLY GET INTO MESSING WITH

OUR MIND, OUR EMOTIONS, OUR

BODY, OUR WILL. LIKE, I WAS

JUST, IT WAS JUST NOT POSSIBLE.

AND YET I'M WATCHING MY

CHILDREN, YES, INFLUENCED BY

THE WORLD, YES TAKEN DOWN BY

THEIR OWN FLESH, AND THEIR

OWN SINFUL NATURE, AND THE

SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT WE'RE

LURED AWAY AND ENTICED BY

OUR FLESH. SO, CERTAINLY, THERE

WAS THE WORLD AND OUR FLESH

BUT THERE WAS THE DEVIL

HIMSELF. I MEAN IF WE HAVE

THREE ENEMIES THERE ARE

THREE ENEMIES, RIGHT?

RIGHT.

I MEAN THE DEVIL MAY

NOT BE BEHIND EVERY BUSH

BUT EVERY THIRD, GUARANTEED.

YOU KNOW?

RIGHT, AND THIS IS A

FORMIDABLE FOE.

YES.

AND IT IS ONE THAT WE

CANNOT TACKLE. YOU KNOW THE

ENEMY JUST HE CAN OUTWIT,

AND OUTSMART US, BUT HE

CANNOT, OUTWIT, AND

OUTSMART OUR GOD.

NO.

AND THERE GETS TO BE THAT

PLACE WHERE THERE IS ONLY ONE

SOLUTION. I LOVE THE WAY YOU

SPOKE ABOUT IT THOUGH WHEN I

HEARD YOUR STORY THAT YOU

TALK ABOUT IT LIKE BEING RATS

THAT INVADE A HOME.

YEAH. I MEAN IF WE

CAN VISUALIZE SINCE I TEACH IN

MY SERIES, YOU ARE A HOUSE

SO PICTURE YOURSELF AS A

HOUSE.

RIGHT.

AND YOU'RE OWNED BY

JESUS. IF YOU'RE A FOLLOWER

OF JESUS CHRIST, HE OWNS YOUR

HOUSE, THE CROSS OF JESUS

CHRIST IS OVER YOU. THE BLOOD

OF CHRIST IS COVERING YOU, YOU

REALLY, YOU HAVE EVERYTHING

AND ESPECIALLY WE HAVE THE

HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US, SO WE

HAVE LIKE THE POWER AND THE

RESURRECTION LIFE OF CHRIST IN

US, HOWEVER, LAURA LYNN,

WE CAN CRACK OPEN THE FRONT

DOOR. WE CAN MAKE

AGREEMENTS WITH THE ENEMY,

WE CAN GIVE HIM RIGHTS, AND

ACCESSES, AND PRIVILEGES,

THAT'S ALL HE NEEDS. I MEAN

EPHESIANS TALKS ABOUT DO NOT

GIVE THE ENEMY A FOOT HOLD.

AND THAT WORD MEANS AN

OPPORTUNITY, A SPACE, A PLACE

IT IS A HABITABLE SPACE AND I

LIKEN IT TO, WHEN YOU OPEN

THE FRONT DOOR, AND MAKE

AGREEMENTS WITH THE ENEMY,

AND IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT DRUGS

AND ALCOHOL. I MEAN WE CAN

MAKE AGREEMENTS WITH THE

ENEMY WITH OUR LYING TONGUE,

WITH OUR, YOU KNOW, OUR

JEALOUS THOUGHTS. WE'RE JUST

WE ALLOW SIN.

EVEN ENTERTAINMENT.

ABSOLUTELY, JUST INVITING TO

OUR HOUSE WHERE THE SPIRIT

OF GOD IS. YOU CAN'T KICK GOD

OUT OF THE HOUSE HE OWNS,

BUT YOU CERTAINLY CAN GIVE A

FOOTHOLD AN OPPORTUNITY TO

THE ENEMY, AND MY KIDS

WOULD ALL SAY THEY'RE

COMPLETELY NAÏVE. THEY

THOUGHT THEY'D JUST DABBLE,

THEY JUST THOUGHT THEY JUST

WANT TO BE LIKE OTHER KIDS. I

MEAN THEY NEVER IMAGINED

THAT BY OPENING THE CRACK IN

THE DOOR THAT THEY WOULD BE

THE ADDICT, THE ONE THAT JUST

WAS COULDN'T GET FREE OF THIS

BONDAGES THAT CAME IN THEIR

LIFE.

RIGHT, BECAUSE THE ENEMY

DOESN'T SHOW UP LOOKING LIKE

DRAGON.

RIGHT.

IT SHOWS UP AS AN ANGLE

OF LIFE.

SURE.

COMPLETELY DECEIVING

YEAH.

ENTICING YOU INTO

SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK OH,

I'M OKAY. YOU NOW, THE KIDS

THINK I'M OKAY. I CAN TRY A

LITTLE BIT OF THIS, I CAN DO A

LITTLE BIT OF THAT. AND BEFORE

YOU KNOW IT THE ENEMY'S GOAL

IS TO DESTROY.

ABSOLUTELY.

TO KILL US.

THOSE RATS, AS I LIKEN IT

TO RATS REALLY IS THE DEMONIC

INFLUENCE OF THIS KINGDOM

OF DARKNESS THAT WE LET ONE

RAT IN. THEY COME WITH

FRIENDS. I MEAN HE'S GOING

TO BRING YOU DOWN AND YOU

AS CHRISTIANS WE CAN THINK

WE'RE VERY NAIVE THAT, YOU

KNOW, IT'S JUST NO BIG DEAL. I

CAN, YOU KNOW, I CAN OPEN

MYSELF UP TO YOU. I JUST WANT

TO BE LIKE OTHER PEOPLE.

WHATEVER THE, OR MY SON

WOULD SAY HE GOT VERY ANGRY

AND WAS VERY HURT BY SOME OF

THE CHRISTIAN LEADERS THAT

WERE IN HIS LIFE. AND THIS

HAPPENS WITHIN OUR CHURCH,

AND OUR YOUTH GROUPS, IN OUR

CAMPS, AND BUT HE OPENED

THE DOOR TO ANGER AND

BITTERNESS, AND THAT ROUTE

JUST GAVE ACCESS TO THE EVIL

ONE THAT HE WAS NAIVE, WE

WERE NAIVE AS PARENTS, WE

WEREN'T PRAYING AND STANDING

GUARD LIKE WE DO NOW.

AND WE WERE VERY

NAÏVE TO THE INFLUENCE OF THE

ENEMY.

NOW WE ARE GOING TO BE

TALKING ABOUT THIS ALL WEEK, SO

WE WANT YOU TO TUNE IN TO

GET SOME ANSWERS TO THIS

BECAUSE RIGHT NOW WE'RE

SETTING UP A TERRIBLE SCENARIO.

I MEAN THE RATS GET IN AND

YOU EVEN LIKEN THEM LIKE THEY

START COOKING IN THEIR.

OH ABSOLUTELY, PARTYING

IN THE BEDROOM, YOU KNOW,

CHIPS AND DIP IN THE LIVING

ROOM. YOU KNOW, WHATEVER

IT TAKES. THEY WILL TAKE OVER

AND TAKE UP SPACE AND PLACE

IN YOUR LIFE, IN YOUR MIND,

YOUR EMOTIONS, YOUR BODY,

YOUR WILL. WE SAW OUR KIDS

CHANGING BEFORE US AND THEY

WERE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF

NOT JUST MARIJUANA AND SOME

OF THE OTHER DRUGS, AND THEY

WERE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF

THE ENEMY THEMSELVES.

RIGHT.

AND THEY WOULD TESTIFY TO

THIS LAURA LYNN, AND THIS IS

JUST THE MOM SPEAKING BUT

YOU KNOW, WE CAN BLAME THE

WORLD, AND OUR OWN SINFUL

NATURE BUT YOU NEED TO CALL IT

WHAT IT IS WHEN THE ENEMY

STARTS MESSING WITH OUR

FAMILY.

RIGHT, SO WHEN YOU AS A

MOM BEGAN TO REALIZE THAT ALL

THAT YOU HAD PUT IN AND ALL

THAT YOU HAD SOWN INTO THE

KIDS, WAS BEAUTIFUL BUT THE

RATS HAD INFESTED. SOMETHING

WAS GOING WRONG. YOUR SON

WAS GOING OFF THE DEEP END.

THE OTHER TWO WERE SHORTLY

FOLLOWING. WHAT DID YOUR

MOTHERS HEART BEGIN TO DO?

WELL MY MOTHERS HEART

FIRST OF ALL, BEGAN TO PANIC.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

WHAT DO MOTHERS DO? WE

PANIC, WE WANT TO FIX, WE

WANT TO CHANGE, WE WANT TO

CONTROL, AND IT WAS THROUGH A

PROCESS, I MEAN SEVEN YEARS

LAURA LYNN, OF RUNNING.

SEVEN YEARS?

SEVEN YEARS AND IT WAS

QUITE A JOURNEY FOR ME. YOU

KNOW, WE WANT GOD TO

REMOVE OUR PROBLEMS BUT

HE REALLY WANTS TO BE WITH

US IN OUR PROBLEMS. AND HE

REALLY STARTED TO CHANGE

MYSELF AND MY HUSBAND AT

THE CORE OF WHAT WAS

HAPPENING. HE WOKE US AND

HE REALLY STARTED TO CHANGE

MYSELF AND MY HUSBAND AT

THE CORE OF WHAT WAS

HAPPENING. HE WOKE US

UP SPIRITUALLY. HE WOKE US

UP. HE NEEDED TO GET OUR

ARM AROUND, WE NEEDED TO

GET ON THE FRONT LINES. WE

NEEDED TO GET ON OUR KNEES.

AND INSTEAD OF FIGHTING WITH

OUR KIDS, AND THE WORLD, YOU

KNOW, AND BLAMING

EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WE

STARTED GETTING SERIOUS

ABOUT THE REAL PROBLEM AND

THAT WAS THE ENEMY HIMSELF.

AND STARTED GETTING

EQUIPPED ABOUT HOW ARE WE

GOING TO STAND AGAINST

THE ENEMY SCHEMES.

AND WHAT I'M EXCITED

ABOUT IS THAT ALL WEEK WE

ARE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT

HOW TO EQUIP OURSELVES.

YES.

THE WORD OF GOD IS SO

CLEAR, AND IN YOUR GUIDE

BOOK FINDING FREEDOM YOU

GIVE SOME REAL PRACTICAL

ANSWERS. WE'RE GOING TO BE

TALKING ABOUT IT THIS WEEK

BECAUSE THE ENEMY DOES NOT

GET THE LAST WORD ON YOUR

FAMILY ON YOUR KIDS, ON YOUR

HOME. HE DOESN'T, SO THANK

YOU.

THAT'S RIGHT.

WE'LL BE WITH YOU

TOMORROW AS WELL.

OKAY.

UP NEXT, WHY

WOULD ANYBODY BE

LEAVING FRANCE?

THEY'RE LEAVING, THE

WEALTHY, BEST AND BRIGHTEST

ARE SAYING GOODBYE TO A

NATION THEY BELIEVE DOESN'T

WANT THEM TO SUCCEED OR

BECOME WEALTHY. ACCORDING

TO ONE POLL, HALF OF ALL YOUNG

ADULTS IN FRANCE WOULD LEAVE

THE COUNTRY IF THEY COULD

BECAUSE THE FUTURE LOOKS SO

BLEAK. IT'S PRETTY TOUGH TO BE

SUCCESSFUL IN A NATION WHERE

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE DOESN'T

LIKE RICH PEOPLE AND WHERE

THE TAXES KEEP GOING HIGHER

AND HIGHER. CONSEQUENTLY,

THE WEALTHY HAVE HIT THE

EXITS, AND AN INCREASING

NUMBER OF BUSINESS PEOPLE

SAY THEY'VE HAD ENOUGH.

THE FRENCH HAVE HAD IT.

FRENCH JOURNALIST ANNE-

ELISABETH MOUTET CREATED

A SENSATION IN FRANCE WHERE

HER STORY IN THE LONDON

TELEGRAPH ABOUT THOSE

WHO ARE LEAVING FRANCE.

IT'S THE RICH, THE

ENTREPRENEURS, AND THE

YOUNG WHO SAY, 'IF I CAN, I WILL

LEAVE. IF I SPEAK A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE, I WILL LEAVE. IF I CAN

GO AND CREATE SOMETHING

SOMEWHERE ELSE, I WILL

LEAVE.

MOUTET DREW A LOT OF

FIRE FROM THE FRENCH

ESTABLISHMENT AND MEDIA

SO MUCH FIRE THAT THE ATTACKS

ON HER BECAME A STORY ITSELF.

WELL, THE PEOPLE WHO

DISAGREE WITH ME THINK THAT

I'M A TRAITOR, THEY SAY, YOU

KNOW, YOU CAN SAY THIS

IN FRANCE BUT YOU CAN'T

SAY THIS ABROAD.

FRANCE STILL SUFFERS FROM A

TOXIC MARXIST HERITAGE. THE

FRENCH LEFT HATES WHAT IT

CALLS "ANGLO-SAXON

CAPITALISM." BUT FRANCE TODAY

IS TRAPPED BY A WELFARE STATE

THAT IT IS BOTH ADDICTED TO

AND CAN NO LONGER AFFORD, A

WELFARE STATE THAT IS KILLING

JOBS, AND ECONOMIC

OPPORTUNITY. PARIS ECONOMIST

JACOB ARFWEDSON.

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL

YOU PEOPLE FROM FRANCE THEY

ARE HEADING ELSEWHERE.

THEY'RE GOING TO ASIA; THEY'RE

GOING TO THE UNITED STATES

BECAUSE THEY WANT TO

ACHIEVE SOMETHING THAT IS NOT

AUTOMATICALLY TAKEN AWAY BY

A STATE THAT SAYS, 'YOU HAVE,

THEREFORE I TAKE IT.

THIS VIDEO PRODUCED BY

THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT

SHOWS A FRENCH EX-PATRIOT

EXPLAINING HOW EASY IT IS

TO MAKE A NEW LIFE IN FRENCH

SPEAKING QUEBEC. THE MOST

RECENT STATISTICS AVAILABLE

SHOW THAT 2600 FRENCH

FAMILIES LEFT IN 2010 AND

3500 IN 2011. LONDON IS NOW

CALLED THE SIXTH LARGEST

FRENCH CITY. FRENCH TAX

LAWYER JOHN-PHILIPPE DELSOL

HAS HEARD SO MANY

COMPLAINTS FROM HIS BUSINESS

CLIENTS OVER THE YEARS ABOUT

THE EXCESSIVE TAXES AND

REGULATIONS FROM THE FRENCH

STATE THAT HE DECIDED TO

COMPILE THEM ALL IN A BOOK

TITLED, WHY AM I GOING TO

LEAVE FRANCE.

THE PROBLEM IN FRANCE IS

THE LEVEL OF TAXES, THE KIND OF

TAXES IS CHANGING ALMOST

EVERY DAY. IT'S TOO DIFFICULT TO

START A COMPANY, TOO DIFFICULT

TO HIRE PEOPLE, TOO DIFFICULT

TO FIRE PEOPLE.

LAST WEEK THE MAN WHO

SAID HE DOESN'T LIKE RICH

PEOPLE FRENCH PRESIDENT

FRANCOIS HOLLANDE, WAS TRYING

TO LURE TOP EXECUTIVES BACK

TO FRANCE. BUT FOR FOREIGN

BUSINESSES, WARNING SIGNS

ABOUND. FRENCH UNION

WORKERS HAVE A HABIT OF

KIDNAPPING THEIR BOSSES

WHEN THEIR DEMANDS AREN'T

MET. IT HAPPENED AGAIN LAST

MONTH AT THE GOODYEAR TIRE

PLANT IN AMIENS, WHICH THE

AUTOMOTIVE GIANT WANTS TO

CLOSE.

WHEN FRANCE'S INDUSTRIAL

MINISTER TRIED TO GET

GOODYEAR TO RECONSIDER

CLOSING THE PLANT, AMERICAN

CEO, IN A LEAKED LETTER,

BLUNTLY ASKED "HOW STUPID DO

YOU THINK WE ARE? I HAVE

VISITED THE FACTORY A COUPLE

OF TIMES. THE FRENCH

WORKFORCE GETS PAID HIGH

WAGES BUT WORKS ONLY THREE

HOURS. THEY TOLD ME, 'THAT'S

THE FRENCH WAY. MAKE NO

MISTAKE, THERE ARE STILL PLENTY

OF TALENTED AND HARDWORKING

FRENCHMEN, MANY OF THEM

FRUSTRATED WITH THE SYSTEM.

BUT MOUTET SAID THE POLITICAL

ESTABLISHMENT AND MEDIA

WOULD RATHER LIVE IN DENIAL OR

STIGMATIZE THOSE WHO ARE

LEAVING RATHER THAN FACE UP

TO FRANCE'S PROBLEMS, WHICH

ARE DEEP.

WE HAVE AN OVERLAY OF,

'THESE ARE BAD FRENCH

PEOPLE, THEY'RE TRAITORS.

THEY'RE GOING ABROAD. WE

DON'T WANT THEM.'

WHEN FRANCE'S RICHEST MAN,

ANNOUNCED HE WAS LEAVING

OVER FRANCE'S NEW SUPER TAX

ON THE RICH, HE GOT THE

JOURNALISTIC EQUIVALENT OF A

KICK OUT THE DOOR.

THE FULL HEADLINE IN

LIBERATION WAS, 'GET LOST, YOU

RICH BASTARD.

FRANCE IS UNDERGOING BOTH

A BRAIN DRAIN AND CAPITAL

FLIGHT AND RISKS BECOMING ONE

OF THE POORER NATIONS IN

WESTERN EUROPE. AND JOHN-

PHILIPPE DELSOL HAD A WARNING

FOR AMERICANS, SAYING THE

UNITED STATES IS FOLLOWING IN

THE STEPS OF FRANCE, WITH

OBAMACARE AND AN EXPLODING

WELFARE STATE THAT WILL BE

UNSUSTAINABLE. THE FRENCH

CAN TEACH THE AMERICANS A

THING OR TWO ABOUT THE TRAP

OF THE WELFARE STATE AND HOW

HARD IT IS TO ESCAPE. DALE

HERTZ, CBN NEWS, PARIS.

LAURA LYNN, THAT'S

INTERESTING BECAUSE WHEN

YOU LOOK AT WHERE THEY'RE

LEAVING FRANCE, A LOT OF THEM

HAVE COME INTO QUEBEC CITY

AND THEY FIND THAT A VERY

GLAMOROUS PLACE. YOU KNOW

WHEN WE LOOK AT

TRANSFORMATION TAKING

PLACE IN CANADA, IT'S

INTERESTING. BRENTON, ONTARIO

THERE WAS A RASH AT

SANDER WOOD HEIGHTS, WOULD

YOU PRAY FOR THAT AS WELL?

THAT PARTICULAR SCHOOL, WITHIN

SIX YEARS THERE WERE SIX

SUICIDES, LIKE ONE A YEAR.

AND THESE ARE PASTORS KIDS,

AND HONORS STUDENTS, AND

I'VE SEEN SOME GOOD SCIENCE

IN CANADA AS WELL. I

REMEMBER BEING IN

MERIA-MESHI AND WATCHING

HOW THE CHURCHES ARE

WORKING TOGETHER IN

BRINGING TRANSFORMATION,

SO GOD IS ON THE MOVE BUT

WE ALSO HAVE SOME SORE

SPOTS. WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN

IN YOUR TRAVELS?

WELL, YOU KNOW, BRIAN I

ALWAYS LOVE HEARING WHAT

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE

I KNOW YOU TRAVEL ACROSS THE

COUNTRY AND YOU GET A REAL

PULSE.

YEAH.

YOU KNOW, FOR WHAT'S

GOING ON. WHAT I'VE SEEN

IS THAT PEOPLE ARE DESPERATE

BECAUSE SOME OF THEIR KIDS

ARE GOING THROUGH THOSE,

YOU KNOW, THOUGHTS OF

SUICIDE AND EVEN SUICIDE AND

OUR COUNTRY NEEDS GOD.

AMEN.

AND SO HE'S A REAL GOD

AND HE SHOWS UP.

WELL GOD IS ON THE MOVE

AND HE'S MOVING ACROSS

CANADA.

YEAH.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

HE GOT ME LIKE A

IT'S LIKE A MOHAWK THAT

YOU PUT ON YOUR HEAD.

WELL, IF MY DAD IS

BEING A LITTLE GRUMPY

SOMETIMES, SHE WOULD

TELL HIM TO STOP IN A FUNNY

WAY WHICH MAKES MY

SISTER LAUGH, AND ME LAUGH.

AH-STOP IT. WHEN MY DAD

DOES SOMETHING LIKE

INAPPROPRIATE SOMETIMES

SHE'LL HIT HIM AND GO, STOP IT.

WHY ARE WE DEVOTING AN

ENTIRE WEEK TO MOTHERHOOD?

WELL, NUMBER ONE BECAUSE

IT'S MOTHERS DAY THIS MONTH

AND NUMBER TWO BECAUSE THE

UNIFYING THREAD IN EVERYTHING

WE ARE GOING TO DISCUSS WITH

LAURIE THIS WEEK CONNECTS

TO JESUS. WHO HE IS, WHAT HE

DID, AND WHAT THAT MEANS FOR

YOU. THAT'S WHY THIS SHOW

EXISTS, TO TELL YOU THAT STORY

AND WE NEED YOUR HELP TO TELL

IT TO OTHERS.

LAURA LYNN IS EXACTLY RIGHT,

WE NEED TO TELL THIS STORY

TOGETHER. FOR ONLY 20 DOLLARS

A MONTH YOU CAN BECOME A

700 CLUB CANADA PARTNER.

AND WITH PLEDGE EXPRESS IT'S

NEVER BEEN EASIER. THERE ARE

NOW CHECKS TO SIGN, OR LETTERS

TO MAIL. YOUR BANK ACCOUNT

DOES THE WORK WHILE YOU

MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. WHEN

YOU JOIN PLEDGE EXPRESS YOU

CAN LOOK FORWARD TO RECEIVING

A SPECIAL MONTHLY TEACHING

FROM PAT OR GORDON

ROBERTSON.

AND AS OUR THANK YOU

FOR YOUR MONTHLY GIFT WE

WOULD LOVE TO SEND YOU THIS

AMAZING DVD, VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT, WHERE GORDON

ROBERTSON RECEIVED SECRETS

ABOUT OUR DREAMS IN A WAY IN

WHICH GOD SPEAKS TO US

THROUGH THEM.

SO CALL NOW AND HELP US

TELL THE STORY OF JESUS. 1-855

759-0700.

WELL, UP NEXT, AN

ADULTEROUS, METH ADDICTED,

PORN HOUND ENDS UP HAPPILY

MARRIED. SAY WHAT?

I TOLD MYSELF OKAY I'M

GOING TO STOP THIS, I'M GOING

TO STOP SMOKING. I'M GOING TO

CLEAN ALL THIS UP.

WHEN TONY MARTINEZ

MARRIED ROSA, HE THOUGHT HE

COULD LEAVE HIS CRYSTAL METH

ADDICTION BEHIND.

ON OUR WEDDING NIGHT I

ENDED UP SMOKING AND I

DID SOME DRUGS ON THE

WEDDING NIGHT AND IT

PROGRESSIVELY STARTED TO GET

WORSE.

TONY WAS ABLE TO KEEP HIS

DRUG ABUSE A SECRET FROM

HIS BRIDE, BUT IT SENT HIM

INTO FITS OF RAGE.

SHORTLY AFTER GETTING

MARRIED WAS THE FIRST

TIME HE PUSHED ME

UP AGAINST A WALL AND I

FELT LIKE OH, DID I MAKE A

MISTAKE? YOU KNOW, WHAT

DID I DO? DID I MARRY THE

RIGHT PERSON?

ROSA STILL LOVED HER

HUSBAND AND TOLERATED

HIS VOLATILE BEHAVIOR.

I WAS GOING TO FIGHT

FOR OUR MARRIAGE AND TRY TO

BE PATIENT WITH HIM.

THEN THEY HAD A SON.

ROSA THOUGHT THINGS

WOULD GET BETTER BUT SHE

WAS WRONG.

I DON'T KNOW HOW HE

WAS GOING TO BE WHEN HE

WAS GOING TO GET HOME

FROM WORK. YOU KNOW, I

WAS WALKING ON EGGSHELLS

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TYPE OF

MOOD HE WAS GOING TO BE

IN.

ROSA PLEATED WITH HER

HUSBAND TO GO TO COUNSELING

BUT HE FELT LIKE HE HAD LOST

CONTROL OVER HIS LIFE.

AFTER I WOULD BLOW UP

ON MY FAMILY I WOULD SIT

THERE AND I WOULD GO, WHY

AM I DOING THIS? WHY AM I

TREATING MY FAMILY THIS WAY?

AFTER ONE OF HIS BLOWUPS

ROSA CALLED THE POLICE. EVEN

THOUGH SHE DIDN'T PRESS

CHARGES, TONY DECIDED HE

SHOULD STAY AT HIS PARENTS

HOUSE.

I CALLED MY WIFE THE NEXT

MORNING AND TOLD HER THE

REASON WHY I WAS HAVING

THESE, WHY THE MOOD

SWINGS AND EVERYTHING ELSE

IS BECAUSE I HAD A DRUG ISSUE.

THEN I UNDERSTOOD THE

MOODS, THE MOOD SWINGS

THAT HE WAS HAVING, THE

ANGER ISSUES WERE STARTING TO

MAKE A LITTLE BIT MORE SENSE

TO ME.

FINALLY, TONY ENROLLED IN A

CHRISTIAN DRUG TREATMENT

PROGRAM AND WAS FREED FROM

HIS ADDICTION. DURING THAT

TIME HE AND ROSA JOINED THE

CHURCH AND ACCEPTED CHRIST

AS THEIR SAVOIR.

WE WERE BOTH BAPTIZED

TOGETHER, AND SO I REMEMBER

WHEN THEY ASKED US IN OUR

BAPTISM WHAT'S THE

DIFFERENCE FROM BEFORE AND

NOW, AND HAVING A LIFE

WITH CHRIST? I SAID WELL NOW

OUR ARGUMENTS ONLY LAST A

FEW HOURS INSTEAD OF A FEW

DAYS. AND SO EVERYBODY WAS

LAUGHING ABOUT THAT, AND I

SAID I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WAS

FUNNY.

ALTHOUGH TONY PROFESSED

FAITH WITH CHRIST HE STILL

STRUGGLED WITH HIS ANGER. THE

COUPLE ARGUED CONSTANTLY.

EVENTUALLY THEY DIVORCED.

OVER TIME, TONY DEALT WITH

HIS ANGER AND THE TWO

REUNITED.

I DID ASK FOR FORGIVENESS

FROM HER AND THE WAY THAT I

TREATED HER. THE WAY THAT I

TALKED ABOUT HER, THE WAY

THAT I WAS TO HER.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

YEARS THEIR MARRIAGE

FLOURISHED. SO WHEN TONY

RECEIVED A WORK ASSIGNMENT

IN HONG KONG, ROSA HAD NO

RESERVATIONS.

OUR MARRIAGE IS STRONG

NOW AND YOU KNOW IT'S ONLY

GOING TO BE A COUPLE OF YEARS

AND WE'LL BE SEEING EACH

OTHER PERIODICALLY. I SAID,

WE CAN MAKE THIS WORK.

THEY SPOKE OFTEN AND SAW

EACH OTHER EVERY THREE

MONTHS.

HE WAS SENDING ME

SOME LOVE NOTES, AND EMAILS,

AND HE WAS TELLING ME HOW

HE MISSED ME. THEN ABOUT A

YEAR AFTERWARDS THAT KIND OF

STOPPED. I HAD A WOMEN'S

INTUITION, FUNNY FEELING, OR

HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKING TO ME

TELLING ME SOMETHING NOT

RIGHT.

ROSA'S FEARS WERE

CONFIRMED WHEN SHE LOOKED

THROUGH TONY'S FACEBOOK

PAGE.

I SAW SOME MESSAGES

BETWEEN HIM AND THE OTHER

WOMEN. SO, IT WAS HEART

WRENCHING TO ME TO EVEN

HAVE TO TALK TO HIM.

SHE NEVER SAID A WORD

TO TONY ABOUT WHAT SHE

FOUND UNTIL SHE WENT FOR

A VISIT.

I STARTED READING TO HIM

THE EMAIL THAT I HAD SEEN

BACK HERE AT HOME. SO HE

SAYS OKAY, I THINK YOU'VE SEEN

ENOUGH AND HE CLOSED DOWN

THE COMPUTER. THEN I WAS JUST

SO ENRAGED AND I TURNED

AROUND AND GAVE HIM A

GOOD SLAP ON THE FACE.

TONY THOUGHT THEIR

MARRIAGE WAS OVER. BUT ON

THE FLIGHT FROM HONG KONG,

I THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING

TO FIND A SEPARATE SEAT AND

SIT AWAY FROM ME BUT SHE

SAT NEXT TO ME, PUT HER

HEAD ON MY SHOULDER

AND SAID IT'S GOING TO BE

ALRIGHT.

DIVORCE DIDN'T CROSS

MY MIND. I KNEW THAT

SOMEHOW WE WERE GOING

TO WORK THINGS OUT WITH

GOD'S HELP.

AND AT THAT POINT I KNEW

I HAD TO DO WHATEVER IT

TOOK FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE

FOR OUR RELATIONSHIP TO BE

THE BEST IT CAN BE TO SERVE

GOD.

TONY REDEDICATED HIS LIFE

TO CHRIST.

I'M TRIED. I HAVE NO MORE

SECRETS. I'M NOT GOING TO LIVE

THAT LIFE ANYMORE. I'M GOING

TO LIVE MY LIFE FOR GOD AND

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED WHEN I

STARTED ON MY RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

OVERTIME THEY CAME BACK

TOGETHER AND TONY ALSO

JOINED A MEN'S ACCOUNTABILITY

GROUP AT CHURCH.

WITH HER SUPPORT, WITH

HER FORGIVENESS IT FINALLY JUST,

IT GAVE ME THE RELIEF THAT I

NEEDED AND THE COURAGE AND

THE DESIRE TO GO FIND OUT

WHAT WAS WRONG. WHY WAS I

ACTING THIS WAY? WHY WAS I

BEHAVING THIS WAY?

IT WAS LIKE, I SAID IT WAS

A PROCESS THAT I HAD TO GO

THROUGH TO GET TO THAT

FORGIVENESS POINT BECAUSE IF I

WOULD HAVE JUST SAID IT WITH

MY WORDS, AND THEN I WOULD

HAVE STILL HAD THAT HURT AND

ANGER INSIDE OF ME AND THAT

WOULD HAVE COME OUT A

DIFFERENT WAY. WHEN I SAY

DID I FORGIVE HIM, THEN THAT

MEANS IT'S BEHIND ME.

GOD IS NOW AT THE CENTER

OF THEIR MARRIAGE.

WE PRAY FOR EACH OTHER.

THOSE TYPES OF THINGS ARE

REALLY SHOWN IN HER. I BELIEVE

THE DIFFERENCE IN MYSELF AND

PUTTING HER AS A PRIORITY.

FIRST IT'S GOD, AND THEN IT'S

HER.

QUOTING GOD'S WORD,

BECAUSE HIS WORD IS HOPE.

HE PROMISES TO HELP US OUT,

TO WALK WITH US, AND NOT TO

LEAVE US ALONE, AND TO GIVE

US WISDOM AND ALL WE HAVE TO

DO IS ASK FOR IT.

WOW, WHEN YOU LOOK AT

THE ENDING, IT DOESN'T LOOK

ANYTHING LIKE THEY BEGAN.

NO, IT DOESN'T AND YOU

KNOW WHAT? THERE'S HOPE

FOR EVERY MARRIAGE OUT THERE

EVERY ONE THAT IS STRUGGLING

WITH A SITUATION THAT YOU

THINK CANNOT BE RECTIFIED.

GOD HAS GOT A MIRACLE FOR

YOU.

YOU KNOW SO MANY TIMES

WE COME TO THE LORD AND WE

DON'T REALIZE THE SEQUENCE

AND I WANT TO GIVE YOU THIS,

AND AS A PASTOR, LET ME TALK

TO YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS.

AS SOON AS YOU OPEN UP

YOUR HEART AND INVITE JESUS

IN, AT THAT MOMENT, CHANGE

TAKES PLACE, BUT THEN RIGHT

AFTER THE CHANGE YOU

PROBABLY HAVE NEVER BEEN

TOLD THIS BEFORE BUT THERE'S

A CONFLICT THAT HAPPENS AND

THAT CONFLICT, IF YOU'LL JUST

HOLD ON AND HOLD OUT YOU'RE

GOING TO SEE GROWTH TAKE

PLACE. YOU'RE NOT JUST GOING

TO HAVE A BREAKTHROUGH BUT

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A

GROW THROUGH. THE PROBLEM

WITH TONY AND ALSO ROSA,

THEY GOT BAPTIZED TOGETHER

BUT THEN THEIR RELATIONSHIP

WAS TESTED. WHEN HE WENT

AWAY AN AFFAIR TOOK PLACE

BECAUSE OF A HIDDEN ORDINATE

AFFECTION. I KNOW I'M TALKING

TO SOMEONE RIGHT NOW. YOU

ARE NOT FEELING LOVED BY YOUR

HUSBAND OR YOUR WIFE, AND

YOU'VE THOUGHT THAT

SOMEONE IN THE OFFICE, OR

SOMEONE IS MORE GLAMOROUS

BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE IS

GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE.

BUT LET ME TELL YOU, YOU DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE

DOING. YOU SEE, THERE'S A

FASCINATION BUT THERE'S AN

ASSASSINATION, THERE'S A THRILL

BUT THEN THERE'S A KILL. GOD

CALLS THAT SIN AND GOD DEALS

WITH SIN, BUT WATCH THIS, HE

SHOWS HOW HE DEALS WITH SIN

BY SENDING HIS SIN. HOW

SERIOUS IS IT THAT HE WAS

WILLING NOT TO LIVE WITHOUT

YOU BY SENDING HIS ONLY

SON FOR YOU. I'VE GOT

SOMETHING THAT I'D LIKE TO

GET INTO YOUR HANDS AND I'M

GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU.

MALIKI 2:16 SAYS GOD HATES

DIVORCE. IF YOU WANT YOUR

MARRIAGE TO LAST? ARE YOU

WILLING TO DO IT GOD'S WAY?

THAT'S THE QUESTION. NOW I'M

GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU. FATHER

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THAT

QUESTION, IT HANGS THERE

TO THE PERSON THAT IS SAYING

YES, THAT MAN, THAT WOMEN

THEY'VE GONE THROUGH HELL

AND BACK BUT RIGHT NOW

THEY'RE WILLING TO DO IT YOUR

WAY. I PRAY THAT YOU WOULD

RESTORE THAT MARRIAGE, YOU

WOULD RESTORE THAT TRUST, THAT

THE BLOOD OF JESUS WOULD

NOW COME AROUND AND BE

A FENCE AROUND THEM AND

BREAK AN ORDINATE AFFECTIONS.

LORD, EVEN BRING PURITY IN

JESUS NAME, IN LIFE BACK WE

PRAY, AMEN.

AMEN, AND YOU KNOW

THE THING TO REMEMBER IS

THAT IF YOU'RE DEALING WITH

DIFFICULTY IN YOUR MARRIAGE IS

THAT THE ENEMY IS REALLY THE

ROOT OF IT ALL. IT'S NOT ABOUT

HATING EACH OTHER AND BEING

ANGRY AND NOT FORGIVING EACH

OTHER. FORGIVE ONE ANOTHER

AND SET YOUR SIGHTS BOTH ON

THE ENEMY WHO IS OUT TO

DESTROY BOTH OF YOU. AND IT IS

NOT WORTH IT TO JUST KEEP

ANY RESENTMENT, LET IT GO.

YEAH, BUT YOU GOT TO DO

IT GOD'S WAY, AND THAT'S FIRST

THINGS FIRST. I'D LIKE TO GET

SOMETHING IN YOUR HANDS. IT

COSTS YOU NOTHING. LOVE AND

MARRIAGE. 1-855-759-0700.

BUT IF YOU'VE PRAYED THAT

PRAYER WITH ME, YOU'VE HAD

HURT, BUT CALL THE NUMBER

PRAYER PARTNERS ARE

STANDING BY. I REALLY BELIEVE

THAT TONY AND ROSA, THEY

WENT THROUGH THAT AND

NOW THEY HAVE ACCOUNTABILITY

FOR YOU.

ABSOLUTELY, WELL WE HAVE

ENJOYED BEING WITH YOU

TODAY. UNTIL NEXT TIME, I'M

LAURA LYNN TYLER THOMPSON,

AND I'M BRIAN WARREN.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.
