The 700 Club - May 15, 2014

Author and mother of three Jeannie Cunnion encourages parents to stay grounded in their efforts to raise “perfect” children. Plus, when Julia first got involved in exotic dancing, she never thought it would lead to demonic oppression. Read Transcript


IS YOUR HOME FILLED WITH

TEMPER TANTRUMS, ARGUMENTS,

CRYING, AND THAT'S JUST FROM

YOU.

FIND OUT HOW TO TAKE CONTROL

OF YOUR KIDS AND YOUR LIFE.

AND THEN...

SOMETHING WEIRD IS

HAPPENING.

AN ATTACK FROM OUT OF

THIS WORLD.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, BOOM!

AND SHE WAS WRESTLING FOR

CONTROL.

THIS VOICE JUST RIPS

THROUGH MY BODY, AND

IT'S, LIKE, NOT ME.

HEAR HOW SHE FOUGHT BACK,

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: IT'S A GREAT DAY

IN VIRGINIA BEACH.

I HOPE IT IS A GREAT DAY

WHERE YOU ARE.

AND GOD IS GOING TO BLESS US

TODAY WITH A WONDERFUL

PROGRAM, AND I'M GLAD YOUR

WATCHING.

12 YEARS AGO, ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS STRUCK AMERICA ON

9/11, SEPTEMBER 11th, AND

NOW A MUSEUM IS OPENING IN

NEW YORK ON WHAT IS CALLED

GROUND ZERO, SO WE NEVER

FORGET WHAT HAPPENED ON THAT

TRAGIC DAY.

Terry: BUT SOME MUSLIMS

HAVE OBJECTED TO A VIDEO

THAT IS IN THE MUSEUM THAT

TALKS ABOUT al-QAEDA AND

ITS ISLAMIC ORIGINS.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE EXHIBITS

HERE TELL THE STORIES OF THE

NEARLY 3,000 PEOPLE KILLED

IN THE TERROR ATTACKS OF

9/11, A PLACE OF BOTH

SILENCE AND THE SOUNDS OF

TRAGEDY.

ON SEPTEMBER 11th...

I'M ON DH 35th FLOOR.

WE'RE TRYING TO GET UP.

Reporter: THE MUSEUM

REACHES 30 STORE 30 STORIES

DOWN, ALL THE WAY TO THE

BEDROCK THAT SUPPORTED THE

TOWERS.

BOTH CHILLING AND

HEARTBREAKING.

THE MUSEUM IS WHERE YOU

CAN COME TO UNDERSTAND 9/11

THROUGH THE LIVES WHO WERE

KILLED, AND THE LIVES OF

THOSE WHO RUSHED HERE TO

HELP.

Reporter: THE MUSEUM

HOUSES 10,000 ARTIFACTS,

STAIRS THAT LED SO MANY

SURVIVORS TO SAFETY, THE

CROSS OF STEEL BEAMS FOUND

AT GROUND ZERO, AND A

MANGLED FIRE TRUCK.

IT IS EMOTIONAL, VERY,

VERY EMOTIONAL.

THEY HAVE THE POWER TO

NOT O ONLY HONOR THE DEAD,

BUT TO INSPIRE THE LIVING

THROUGH THESE EXHIBITS AND

THROUGH THIS ACCESS TO THIS

VERY SACRED PLACE.

Reporter: THERE ARE

SNIPPETS ABOUT THE

HIJACKERS, INCLUDING Eú!RIEF

HISTORY OF AL-QAEDA.

OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS,

THAT SMALL PART OF THE

MUSEUM HAS COME UNDER FIRE.

ISLAMIC ACTIVISTS ASKING

THAT ISLAMIC EXTREMIST AND

JIHAD BEING TAKEN DOWN.

MEANWHILE, TODAY'S

DEDICATION, KICKING OFF WITH

A SPEECH FROM PRESIDENT

OBAMA, ALONG WITH SURVIVORS,

VICTIMS' FAMILIES, AND FIRST

RESPONDERS.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YES, IT WAS HIT BY

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS WHO

WANTED TO DIE IN JIHAD

AGAINST THE I INFIDELS.

MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT.

I CONGRATULATE THE PEOPLE AT

THE MUSEUM WHO SAY WE'RE NOT

GOING TO DESTROY HISTORY.

IN OTHER NEWS, THE TEA PARTY

TARGETING SCANDAL.

THEY SAID IT WAS A ROBOT

ORGANIZATION.

IT TURNS OUT THERE WERE

E-MAILS FROM THE I.R.S.

HEADQUARTERS IN WASHINGTON,

D.C. DEALING WITH PRESSURE

FROM A DEMOCRATIC SENATOR.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: PAT, YOU'RE

RIGHT.

JUST AS YOU SAID, NEWLY

RELEASED E-MAIL SHOWS THE

I.R.S. HEADQUARTERS HERE IN

WASHINGTON WAS INVOLVED IN

THE TEA PARTY SCANDAL.

ONE OF THOSE E-MAILS CAME

FROM LOIS LERNER, WHO HAS

REFUSED TO TESTIFY BEFORE

CONGRESS.

THE E-MAILS CONTRADICT

ORIGINAL WHITE HOUSE CLAIMS

THAT THE E-MAILS CAME FROM

THE CONGRESSIONAL HOUSE IN

CINCINNATI.

10% WHO DONATED TO THE TEA

PARTY WERE AUDITED BY THE

I.R.S.

THAT COMPARES TO LESS THAN

1% AUDIT RATE FOR THE

AVERAGE TAXPAYER.

AND SPEAKING OF CONGRESS,

STILL MORE EXAMPLES OF WASTE

FULL GOVERNMENT SPENDING

WHEN IT COMES TO

CONGRESSIONAL EARMARKS, FOR

THE SPECIAL PROJECTS

LAWMAKERS LOAD INTO THE

FEDERAL BUDGET.

CONGRESS MANAGED TO PASS

MORE THAN 1002EARMARKS FOR

2015, SOMETIMES GIVING

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO

GROUPS THAT DIDN'T EVEN WANT

THE MONEY.

Reporter: THEY BLAST

CONGRESS FOR ITS ANNUAL

PORK-BARREL WASTE.

THERE ARE 109 EARMARKS,

COSTING TAXPAYERS

$2.7 BILLION IN 2014.

Reporter: THIS IS HOW

WASTEFUL CONGRESS CAN BE,

PASSING SPENDING FOR

AGENCIES THAT ARE SAYING,

DON'T SEND US THE MONEY.

ONE TARGET IS THE

$2.6 MILLION FOR AN ECONOMIC

DEVELOPMENT AGENCY IN

ALASKA.

THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF

THE DENALI COMMISSION SAYS

THE ORGANIZATION SHOULDN'T

EVEN EXIST.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS POINTED

OUT THAT THERE WERE 29 OTHER

FEDERAL PROGRAMS THAT DO

EXACTLY THE SAME THING.

Reporter: OR THERE IS

THE $90 MILLION FOR M-1

TANKS THE PENTAGON INSISTS

IT REALLY DOESN'T WANT.

THE SECRETARY OF THE ARMY

SAYS THEY DON'T NEED TO

BUILD MORE M-1s.

THEY WANT TO DELAY THIS FOR

FOUR YEARS AND SAVE

$3 BILLION.

THERE WERE 2000 M-1S SITTING

IDLE IN THE DESERT IN

CALIFORNIA.

Reporter: AND THEY ARE

GIVING $266 MILLION TO

DUPLICATE DISEASES THAT ARE

BEING RESEARCHED.

OTHER HEALTH RESEARCH

DONE AT OTHER AGENCIES.

Reporter: HE COMPLAINS

SOME OF THE MILITARY, ALONG

WITH THEIR CONGRESSIONAL

BENEFACTORS, SEEM MORE

CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR PET

ENVIRONMENT PROJECTS THAN

DEFENSE, NO MATTER WHAT IT

COSTS.

HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS PER

GALLON FOR ALGAE-BASED

FUEL.

OTHER MEMBERS HAVE SAID THAT

THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY IS

NOT THE SECRETARY OF

ENERGY.

THIS MONEY BELONGS AT THE

ENERGY DEPARTMENT, IF IT

BELONGS ANYWHERE.

Reporter: SHOTTS IS

PARTICULARLY PEEVED BY

$16 MILLION THAT WENT TO

APPROVE HALIBUT IN THE

NORTHWEST.

WHAT ABOUT THE LOBSTERS

IN MAINE?

WE DON'T WANT TO GIVE ANY

OTHER SPECIES TO COME TO

WASHINGTON TO GET MONEY.

Reporter: THERE IS A

BAN IN WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW,

BUT THEY'RE STILL MANAGING

TO SPENDING BUT THEY'RE NOT

CALLING EARMARKS RIGHT NOW.

PAT, SO MUCH FOR THAT EAR

MARK MONEY.

Pat: IT IS NOT JUST

EARMARKS.

IT'S LIKE AN ADDICTION.

IT IS WORSE THAN CRAAk

COCAINE, IT'S WORSE THAN

HEROIN.

IT IS LIKE THE CONGRESS HAS

JUST INHALED SOME OBNOXIOUS

FUMES FROM SOME OTHER

PLANET.

IT IS INCREDIBLE.

THEY JUST KEEP ON THROWING

MONEY AWAY LIKE MONEY GROWS

ON TREES.

THERE IS GOING TO COME A

TIME WHEN WE CAN'T DO IT ANY

LONGER, WHEN THIS COUNTRY IS

TOTALLY AND ABSOLUTELY

BANKRUPT, AND ALL OF THESE

CRAZY PROJECTS ARE BRINGING

US CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THAT

EVIL DAY.

AND IT IS GOING TO AFFECT

EVERYBODY.

YOU WON'T HAVE JOBS.

YOU WON'T HAVE HOMES.

YOU WON'T HAVE THE ABILITY

TO BORROW MONEY.

YOUR CREDIT CARDS ARE GOING

TO BE REVOKED.

IT IS GOING TO BE AWFUL.

NATIONS OVERSEAS WON'T SELL

US ANYTHING UNLESS WE PAY IN

HARD CASH, AND THAT COLD,

HARD CASH IS GOING TO BE

GOLD OR SILVER.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE

ANYMORE OF THESE PHONY

DOLLARS.

IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

AND IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IN

AN INSTANT.

IT IS GOING TO BE THE MOST

PAINFUL THING YOU CAN

IMAGINE.

HIDEOUS BREAD LINES AND

STARVING PEOPLE.

THIS GREAT NATION BROUGHT TO

ITS KNEES.

THAT'S WHAT THIS NONSENSE IS

GOING TO BRING ABOUT, AND

THEY JUST KEEP ON SPENDING

LIKE THERE IS A BOTTOMLESS

PIT, THERE IS A WELL.

THERE IS NO BOTTOMLESS PIT.

WE CANNOT SPEND ANY LONGER

MONEY WE DON'T HAVE.

WE'RE BORROWING FROM THE

CHINESE TO FUND THESE

WASTEFUL PROJECTS.

IT MAKES ME SICK TO THINK

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN FOR

OUR FUTURE GENERATION.

WHEW!

TAKE A BREATH.

JOHN?

Reporter: WILDFIRES ARE

STILL RAGING THROUGH

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

WE'VE GOT SHOCKING VIDEO OF

A FIRE TORNADO.

NINE WILDFIRES, COVERING

MORE THAN 14 SQUARE MILES,

HAVE BEEN BURNING AROUND THE

SOUTHERN CITY OF CARLSBAD,

AND A STATE OF EMERGENCY HAS

BEEN DECLARED FOR SAN

DIEGO.

FLAMES HAVE DAMAGED OR

DESTROYED AT LEAST 30 HOMES,

AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WERE

FORCED TO FLEE, AND A NUMBER

OF COLLEGE CAMPUSES WERE

CLOSED.

SOME 21,000 EVACUATION

NOTICES WERE SENT TO

RESIDENTS.

ANOTHER FIRE BLACKENED 6,000

ACRES AROUND CAMP

PENDLETON.

FIREFIGHTERS FROM ACROSS THE

STATE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO

CONTAIN THE FIRES.

THE WIND CAN CHANGE, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN IT SEEMS

LIKE WE'RE GOING TO BE SAFE,

AND WE'RE NOT.

WE PACKED EVERYTHING AND

WE'RE OUT OF THERE.

I'VE DONE THIS 35 YEARS,

AND THIS IS SOME OF THE MOST

RADICAL FIREFIGHTING I'VE

SEEN.

Reporter: CALMER WINDS

ON FRIDAY MAY HELP

FIREFIGHTERS BATTLE THE

BLAZE.

CHILDREN EAT MORE THAN

10,000 POUNDS OF SUGAR EACH

YEAR IF THEY'RE EATING A

NORMAL BOWL OF BREAKFAST

CEILING EACH DAY.

THAT IS THE STUDY FROM THE

ENVIRONMENTAL WORKING

GROUP.

IT FOUND THAT CEREALS AIMED

AT CHILDREN

HAD 40 MORE% OF

SUGAR THAN ADULT CEREALS.

KIDS ON AVERAGE EAT TWO TO

THREE TIMES AS MUCH SUGAR

EVERY DAY AS THEY SHOULD.

ONE OF THE CEREALS

CONSIDERED ONE OF THE WORST

OFFENDERS MEASURES 56

56 GRAMS OF SUGAR PER

WEIGHT.

Pat: I'M NOT APPALLED.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE

PEOPLE WHO WORK AT THOSE BIG

FOOD COUNTRIES ARE NOT

INTERESTED IN MAKING YOUR

CHILDREN HEALTHY.

THEY'RE INTERESTED IN YOUR

CHILDREN EATING AS MUCH

SUGAR AS POSSIBLE.

BECAUSE THEIR BONUSES AND

DIVIDENDS DEPENDS ON SELLING

MANY, MANY MORE BOXES OF

CEREAL.

THAT'S WHY THEY HAVE

ENTICING NAMES, LIKE

"CAPTAIN CRUNCH."

AND LITTLE CHILDREN GO WITH

MOMMY OUT TO THE GROCERY

STORE, AND THEY'RE, LIKE,

MOMMY, I'VE GOT TO HAVE SOME

CEREAL.

THERE ARE WONDERFUL

CEREALS.

OATMEAL IS ONE, THAT IS

ABSOLUTELY GOOD FOR YOU.

IT'S GOT LOTS OF FIBER AND

NO SUGAR.

AND KIDS CAN LEARN TO LIKE

OATMEAL AND2ENJOY IT UP TO

THE HILLS.

THERE IS A SHREDDED WHEAT

CEREAL THAT DOESN'T HAVE

MUCH SUGAR.

AND YOU CAN SAY TO THE KIDS,

LOOK, YOU EITHER EAT THIS OR

YOU STARVE.

YOU'RE IN CHARGE.

Terry: THAT'S A GREAT

WAY TO START THE MORNING.

NO, I'M JOKING.

Pat: IT IS.

I'VE GOT A DOG, AND THEY SAY

YOU'VE GOT TO ENTICE THE DOG

TO EAT THE FOOD.

YOU'VE GOT TO BUY EXPENSIVE

CANNED DOG FOOD, YOU'VE GOT

TO PUT TREATS ON TOP.

THERE IS DRY DOG FOOD.

IT COMES IN A BIG BAG --

Terry: IT'S ACTUALLY

BETTER FOR THEM.

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS

BETTER FOR THEM.

IT IS BALANCED NUTRITION.

IF THE DOG DOESN'T EAT IT,

AND NIGHT COMES, AND SHE

SAYS, I GUESS HE'S NOT GOING

TO GIVE ME SOMETHING ELSE,

SO THEY EAT THE FOOD.

THAT'S HEALTHY.

THE SAME THING WITH

CHILDREN.

I'M A GREAT FAN OF OATMEAL.

Terry: IT IS EXCELLENT

FOR YOU.

MOST OF US GREW UP ON THAT.

Pat: WELL, SURE.

MY WIFE'S FATHER LIVED TO A

RIPE OLD AGE, AND HE HAD A

BOWL OF OATMEAL EVERY

MORNING.

Terry: IT BALANCES YOUR

BLOOD SUGAR.

Pat:B)U DOES ALL THAT.

THESE CRUNCHY CEREALS, IT

SPIKES YOUR BLOOD RIGHT OFF

THE BAT, AND THEN THEY GET

TIRED AND THEY START ACTING

UP IN SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY'RE

TIRED AND SLEEPY AND OUT OF

SORTS.

I DON'T WANT TO GIVE YOU A

NUTRITION LESSON, BUT IT

MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL TO THINK

THAT THESE COMPANIES ARE

TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OUR

LITTLE KIDS, AND OUR LITTLE

KIDS ARE GETTING FATTER AND

FATTER AND FATTER, AND

THEY'RE GETTING DIABETES 2

AND ADULT ONSET DIABETES,

AND WE RUN UP ALL OF THE

MEDICAL BILLS THAT ARE

BANKRUPTING OUR COUNTRY.

IT IS SO SIMPLE: OATMEAL.

Terry: QUAKER IS ON THE

PHONE.

WELL, COMING UP, THE FIRST

WOMAN IN CONGRESS TO HAVE

GIVEN BIRTH THREE TIMES

WHILE IN OFFICE.

MY JUGGLING ACT, I DON'T

THINK IS THAT DIFFERENT FROM

MILLIONS Oo OTHER WORKING

MOMS IN THIS COUNTRY.

AND SOME DAYS ARE BETTER

THAN OTHER DAYS.

Terry: THE CHAIRWOMAN

OF THE HOUSE REPUBLICAN

CONFERENCE, CATHY McMORRIS

ROGERS WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: THIS IS AN AMAZING

LADY.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, IF YOU

WANT TO DRAFT THE

APPLICATIONS FOR THE IDEAL

CANDIDATE, SHE IS IT.

SHE IS THE HIGHEST RANKING

REPUBLICAN IN CONGRESS, AND

CATHY McMORRIS ROGERS IS

ONE OF THE RISING STARS OF

THE PARTY.

BUT SHE CAME FROM VERY, VERY

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS,

INCLUDING, BELIEVE IT OR

NOT, GROWING UP IN A LOG

CABIN.

MOVE OVER, ABRAHAM, YOU'VE

GOT A RIVAL.

DAVID BRODY HAS MORE.

I LOVE YOU, BABE.

David: THIS IS CATHY

McMORRIS ROGERS AT HOME IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

AND THIS IS CATHY McMORRIS

ROGERS IN SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON.

OH, MY GOODNESS, YOU'VE

GOT A CANDY.

David: IT IS A TALE OF

TWO WASHINGTONS.

IN WASHINGTON, D.C., SHE IS

THE HOUSE REPUBLIBQN

CONFERENCE, CHARGED WITH

EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATING

THE G.O.P. MESSAGE, AND

GIVING THE G.O.P. STATE OF

THE UNION ADDRESS.

WHAT AN HONOR IT IS FOR

ME TO BE WITH YOU AFTER THE

PRESIDENT'S STATE OF THE

UNION.

David: BUT BACK IN

SPOKAN, THAT OTHER

WASHINGTON, SHE IS JUST

PLAIN OLD CATHY.

I'M CATHY McMORRIS

ROGERS.

I SEE MYSELF AS A TYPICAL

KID

AND HAS BEEN GIVEN SOME

TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITIES.

David: IF CATHY HAD TO

CHOOSE BETWEEN THESE TWO

WASHINGTONS, THERE IS NO

DOUBT SHE WOULD CHOOSE RIGHT

HERE IN SPOKAN.

IT IS IN EASTERN WASHINGTON,

AND IT'S VERY RURAL, VERY

CONSERVATIVE, AND EXACTLY

WHERE SHE GOT HER HUMBLE

ROOTS.

SO HUMBLE, IN FACT, SHE

SPENT A COUPLE OF YEARS OF

HER CHILDHOOD GROWING UP IN

THE REMOTE AREA OF NORTHERN

BRITISH COLUMBIA, IN

CANADA.

WE LIVED IN A CABIN

WITHOUT ELECTRICITY, WITHOUT

RUNNING WATER.

g gLIKE LITTLE HOUSE ON THE

PRAIRIE.

THAT IS A FAVORITE OF

MINE.

David: AND SHE

CONTINUED TO EMBARK ON NEW

CHALLENGES, LIKE JUNE THE

4-H YOUTH ORGANIZATION, AND

SHE LIVED ON A FARM, WHICH

TAUCá HER THE VALUE OF HARD

WORK.

FOR YEARS SHE PUT IN LONG

HOURS AT THE FAMILY'S FRUIT

STAND.

YOU HAVE TO PRUNE THE

TREES, AND YOU HAVE TO THIN

THE TREES.

EVEN WHEN IT COMES TIME TO

PICK THE FRUIT, YOU GO

AROUND AND YOU JUST PICK

WHAT IS RIPE.

SO YOU REALLY GET TO KNOWS

THOSE TREES THROUGH THE

YEARS.

David: IT WAS THEN OFF

TO PENSACOLA CHRISTIAN

COLLEGE, WORKING AT

McDONALD'S TO PUT HERSELF

THROUGH SCHOOL.

SHE BECAME THE FIRST IN HER

FAMILY TO GRADUATE COLLEGE.

AND SHE EVENTUALLY GOT INTO

LOCAL POLITICS.

AND ROUGHLY 15 YEARS LATER,

HERE SHE IS, THE 200th

WOMEN ELECTED TO CONGRESS,

AND ONE OF THE MOST

INFLUENTIAL WOMEN IN

POLITICS.

SHE BELIEVES GOD IS LEADING

HER STEPS.

IF YOU WOULD HAVE TOLD

ME, MAYBE WHEN I WAS IN HIGH

SCHOOL, THAT THIS IS WHERE IT-WOULD BE TODAY, OR T@AU I

WOULD BE GIVING THE

REPUBLICAN ADDRESS FOLLOWING

THE PRESIDENT'S STATE OF THE

UNION, I MIGHT HAVE BEEN

OVERWHELMED.

AND YET AS GOD LEADS, AND

ONE STEP AT A TIME HE

PREPARES AND HE EQUIPS YOU

FOR WHAT IS NEXT.

David: AND RIGHT NOW,

WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE

CONGRESSWOMAN IS MAKING SURE

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S

MESSAGE REACHES OUT TO ALL

AMERICANS.

THE OLD ADAGE THAT PEPEE

DON'T CARE WHAT YOU KNOW

UNTIL YOU KNOW THAT YOU CARE

I THINK IS IMPORTANT, AND WE

HAVE TO BE LETTING PEOPLE

KNOW THAT WE CARE, AND THAT

WE UNDERSTAND, AND THAT WE

REFLECT WHO THEY ARE AND

THEIR EXPERIENCES.

David: AS A WOMAN WITH

AN INFLUENTIAL MEGA PHONE,

SHE IS FIGHTING BACK ON THE

DEMOCRAT'S CHARGE THAT THE

G.O.P. IS NOT ON THE PAGE

WITH EQUAL PAY FOR WOMEN.

CITING HOW THE PARTY BACKED

THE EQUAL PAY ACT AS FAR

BACK AS 1963.

DO YOU THINK THIS IS

DECEITFUL ON THEIR PART?

YES, IT IS.

David: DEMOCRATS SAY

WOMEN MAKE 77 CENTS FOR

EVERY DOLLAR A MAN MAKES.

IT IS NOT AN ACCURATE

REFLECTION OF WHAT IS GOING

ON.

IT DOESN'T TAKE IN

CONSIDERATION THE CHOICES

THAT WOMEN MAKE, AND THE

EDUCATION AND THE JOB FIELDS

THAT WOMEN ENTER.

David: AND THE OTHER

ISSUE ON HER PLATE,

OBAMACARE.

DESPITE A RECENT FLAP OVER

HER REMARKS THAT OBAMACARE

IS PROBABLY HERE TO STAY,

SHE HAS REPEATED TRIED TO

REPEAL IT.

IT'S A ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL,

GOVERNMENT KNOWS BEST,

SOLUTION FOR HEALTH CARE.

David: WHY IT IS AN

IMPORTANT ISSUE TO HER IS

BECAUSE HER SON, COLE WAS

BORN WITH DOWN SYNDROME.

YOU DON'T EXPECT THAT TO

HAPPEN TO YOU.

HE IS EXCEEDING ALL

EXPECTATIONS.

I'VE TOLD MYSELF, DON'T PUT

ANY LIMITS ON COLE.

David: COLE IS ONE OF

THREE CHILDREN FOR HER AND

HER HUSBAND, BRIAN, WHO MET

SIX YEARS AGO.

I WAS 36 BEFORE I MET

BRIAN ROGERS.

I WAS WONDERING, AM I GOING

TO BE SINGLE FOR THE REST OF

MY LIFE?

AND HERE WAS THIS WONDERFUL

MAN, WHO HAD NEVER BEEN

MARRIED, NEVER HAD KIDS,

JUST WAITING FOR ME.

David: AND NOW BRIAN,

A RETIRED NAVY COMMANDER,

STAYS HOME WITH THE KIDS

WHILE THE CONGRESSWOMAN

HEADS OFF TO WORK.

I HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO

DO THINGS FEW MEN HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY TO DO.

I AM THRILLED IN SUPPORTING

MY WIFE AS SHE MOVES FORWARD

WITH HER CONGRESSIONAL

CAREER.

David: AND THAT

CONGRESSIONAL CAREER IS NOW

ALSO ONE FOR THE HISTORY

BOOKS.

McMORRIS ROGERS IS THE

FIRST WOMAN IN CONGRESS TO

EVER GIVE BIRTH THREE TIMES

WHILE IN OFFICE.

David: YOU'RE NOT ONLY

A MOM, YOU ARE TECHNICALLY

AN HISTORIC MOTHER.

[LAUGHTER]

OH, BOY.

MY JUGGLING ACT, I DON'T

THINK IS THAT DIFFERENT FROM

MILLIONS OF OTHER WORKING

MOMS IN THIS COUNTRY.

AND SOME DAYS IT GOES BETTER

THAN OTHER DAYS.

SOME DAYS I THINK, OKAY, WE

HAVE THIS FIGURED OUT.

AND OTHER DAYS IT FEELS LIKE

IT IS ALL FALLING APART.

David: BUT SHE HAS ITA&C @&Cú

TOGETHER IN D.C., A STRONG

WOMAN IN A PLACE DOMINATED

BY MEN.

BUT FOR CATHY McMORRIS

ROGERS, ALL OF THIS IS NOT

ABOUT POWER AND CLOUT.

FOR HER, IT IS ABOUT HER

FAITH IN GOD, THAT LED HER

TO WHERE SHE IS AT TODAY.

I HAVE RECOGNIZED THAT

GOD'S WILL IS NOT THE

DESTINATION.

AND IT IS NOT A TITLE.

IT IS NOT A POSITION.

GOD'S WILL IS DAY IN AND DAY

OUT BEING THE PERSON HE

WANTS YOU TO BE.

I DON'T WANT THEM EVER TO

SAY, LOOK AT HER, SHE SAYS

SHE IS A CHRISTIAN AND LOOK

WHAT SHE DID.

I WANT MY TESTIMONY TO BE

ONE THAT IS PLEASING OF

JESUS CHRIST, MY LORD AND MY

SAVIOR.

WE PRAY THESE THINGS IN

YOUR NAME, AMEN.

David: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, IN SPOKAN,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: SHE IS AWESOME.i WAS NOT FAMILIAR WITH HER

AND WHAT SHE'S DOING.

WHAT A WONDERFUL PERSON.

I'LL TELL YOU, YOU'RE

LOOKING AT A POTENTIAL

PRESIDENT.

SHE'S GOT A GREAT FUTURE.

Terry: SHE CERTAINLY

KNOWS HOW TO JUGGLE A LOT OF

THINGS.

Pat: HAVING BIRTH WHILE

SHE IS A CONGRESSWOMAN --

THREE TIMES.

I'VE NEVER HAD THAT JOY.

YOU HAVE, HAVEN'T YOU?

Terry: YEAH, BUT NOT4j4(P&Cú

WHILE BEING A

CONGRESSWOMAN.

Pat: WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: UP NEXT, SHE WAS

AN EXOTIC DANCER WHO

ATTRACTED SOME UNWANTED

ATTENTION.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, BOOM, MY

HANDS GO UP.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I HEAR

THIS ROARING, AND THIS VOICE

JUST RIPS THROUGH MY BODY.

AND IT'S, LIKE, NOT ME.

Terry: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENED NEXT WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: MODELING

AND, QUOTE,"EXOTIC

DANCING."

TO A YOUNG WOMAN NAMED

JULIA, THESE WERE EASY WAYS

TO MAKE MONEY SO THAT SHE

COULD GO TO COLLEGE, AT

FIRST.

BUT BEFORE LONG, JULIA

ATTRACTED SOME VERY UNWANTED

ATTENTION.

THE VOICES INSIDE HER OWN

HEAD.

Reporter: ON AN

AFTERNOON TRAIN RIDE THROUGH

CHICAGO, JULIA JORDAN

REMEMBERS THE FEAR.

ALL THESE VOICES START

COMING OUT OF ME, DIFFERENT

VOICES.

LIKE A LITTLE GIRL'S VOICE,

AN ANGRY, GROWLING VOICE.

Reporter: FOR MONTHS,

JULIA BELIEVES SHE WAS

TORMENTED BY DEMONS.

I'M JUST SWEATING, AND

THE ROOM INSTANTANEOUSLY

FEELS LIKE IT IS 100°.

I'M, LIKE, OH, MY GOSH, WHAT

IS HAPPENING TO ME?

Reporter: JULIA SAYS

THE ATTACK RESULTED FROM

YEARS OF BAD CHOICES AND

RUNNING AWAY FROM GOD.

I'M YOUNG, WHY NOT TRY

AND DISCOVER AND GET OUT OF

THIS LITTLE TOWN I'VE BEEN

IN MY WHOLE LIFE.

APPEALED TO ME.

Reporter: JULIA GREW UP

GOING TO CHURCH, AND

REMEMBERS THE FAMILY FRIEND

WHO OFTEN TOLD HER HOW MUCH

GOD LOVES HER.

I FELT LOVE LIKE I'VE

NEVER FELT BEFORE, AND JOY

THAT I'VE NEVER FELT

BEFORE.

SO I KNEW WHAT SHE WAS

TALKING ABOUT WAS REAL.

Reporter: BUT OVER THE

YEARS, SHE STARTED HEARING A

DIFFERENT MESSAGE ABOUT

GOD.

IF YOU DON'T DO THIS, GOD

I HEARD A LOT OF THOSE TYPE

OF MESSAGES.

AND I GOT FRUSTRATED BECAUSE

I KNEW I WAS ALWAYS GOING TO

BE FALLING SHORT.

I KNEW I WAS NEVER GOOD

ENOUGH.

Reporter: SO JULIA

WALKED AWAY FROM THE CHURCH

AND GOD.

BY NOW SHE WAS IN COLLEGE ON

HER DIME.

EVENTUALLY SHE NEEDED

MONEY.

I STARTED TO GET THIS

ANXIETY, LIKE, HOW AM I

GOING TO PAY FOR ALL OF THIS

AND WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

>.

HER SHE COULD MAKE GOOD

MONEY AS AN EXOTIC DANCER.

JULIA SAW IT AS AN

OPPORTUNITY, BUT WANTED TO

ESTABLISH SOME BOUNDARIES.

I DIDN'T DRINK, I DIDN'T

SMOKE, I DIDN'T LET GUYS

TOUCH ME.

Reporter: LATER, IN

SCHOOL, SHE STARTED A

MODELING CAREER.

I DEFINITELY DIDN'T FEEL

CONFIDENT OR BEAUTIFUL.P &C @&Cú

I NEEDED THOSE TITLES TO

MAKE ME FEEL VALIDATED.

Reporter: DURING THIS

TIME SHE MET JOHN, WHO WAS

ALSO A MODEL, AND THEY

MARRIED.

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL,

MY SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER

SAID WRITE A LIST OF

EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN A

PARTNER.

Reporter: STILL, JULIA

WAS STANCEIN DANCING IN

STRIP CLUBS AND THOUGHT

NOTHING OF IT.

NOW THAT WAS CHANGING.

I HAD TO STOP DANCING,

BECAUSE I THOUGHT AFTER ALL

GOD HAS DONE FOR ME, I CAN'T

BREAK HIS HEART.

I FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT IT

NOW.

Reporter: THEN SHE LOST

A CLOSE FRIEND TO A HEART

ATTACK.

I REALIZED THAT LIFE IS

SHORT.

AND IF I'M GOING TO START

LIVING FOR GOD, I CAN'T KEEP

PUTTING IT OFF ANOTHER DAY.

I FELT THIS THOUGHT IN MY

HEART, LIKE, OPEN THE

BIBLE.

Reporter: THE WORDS

WERE PIERCING.

THE VERY FIRST VERSE I

LAND ON IS IN MATTHEW.

IF YOUR EYE OFFENDS YOU, CUT

IT OUT.

IT IS BETTER TO GO TO HEAVEN

WITH ONE EYE THAN NOT TO GO

TO HEAVEN AND HAVE TWO

EYES.

I THOUGHT, I THINK THE LORD

IS TALKING ABOUT MY JOB.

Reporter: JULIA SAYS AS

SHE CONTINUED READING, SHE

FELT A STRANGE PRESENCE.

SHE CALLED HER MOTHER.

I'M READING THE BIBLE,

AND SOMETHING WEIRD IS

HAPPENING.

AND THEN I'M LAYING ON THE

BED, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,

BOOM, MY HANDS GO UP AND MY

FEET ARE, LIKE, TO THE BED

POSTS.

IT FEELS LIKE SOMETHING IS

TIED AROUND MY WRISTS AND MY

ANKLES.

AND I GO, MOM, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN THIS VOICE JUST RIPS

THROUGH MY BODY, AND IT'S

NOT ME.

AND IT SAYS, I HATE YOU!

I HATE YOU!

AND IT'S JUST GROWLING.

Reporter: JULIA'S

MOTHER AND FRIENDS FROM

CHURCH RUSHED OVER TO PRAY

FOR HER.

SHE MADE IT THROUGH THE

ORDEAL.

OVERTHE NEXT SEVERAL

MONTHS, SHE HAD MORE

ATTACKS.

JOHN WASN'T CONVINCED THEY

WERE SUPER NATURAL.

SHE IS NOT

DEMON-POSSESSED.

MY WIFE HAS A MENTAL ISSUE.

SHE HAS MAYBE SOME KIND OF

DEPRESSION OR SOMETHING

WRONG WITH HER

PSYCHOLOGICAL.

WHEN I LEFT, SHE WAS TOTALLY

NORMAL, AND THEN ONE NIGHT

SHE WAS NOT.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

JULIA JUMPED OUT OF THE CAR

AS JOHN WAS DRIVING.

HE CHECKED HER INTO A

PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL.

I SAID TO GOD, IF YOU'RE

REAL, I NEED HELP.

I CAPITO CAN'T DO THIS.

I CAN'T FIX THIS.

PLEASE, GOD, HELP ME.

Reporter: JULIA FOUND A

CHURCH THAT KNEW HOW TO

HELP, BUT FIRST JULIA HAD TO

GIVE HER LIFE TO GOD.

LORD, I'VE LIVED FOR THE

DEVIL MY WHOLE LIFE.

I'VE LIVED FOR MYSELF MY

WHOLE LIFE.

AND NOW I WANT TO LIVE FOR

YOU.

Reporter: SHE FELT A

CHANGE.

THE WORD IS THE BREAD OF

LIFE.

IT LITERALLY WAS FILLING ME

UP SO MUCH THAT THE DEMONS

JUST EXPLODED THEMSELVES.

THAT PART WAS AMAZING TO

ME.

Reporter: SHE GAVE HER

LIFE TO CHRIST, AND JOHN DID

THE SAME.

JULIA QUIT DANCING.

SHE AND JOHN BEGAN STUDYING

GOD'S WORD AND BUILDING

THEIR FAITH.

I START OFF THE DAY IN

PRAYER, AND I ALWAYS THANK

THE LORD BECAUSE I WANT TO

BE REMINDED OF HOW GOOD HE

IS.

I FEEL LIKE LIVING FOR THE

LORD IS THIS GREAT

ADVENTURE.

INSTEAD OF GOING ON OUR

WINGS, WE LET THE LORD CARRY

US.

WE LET THE LORD CHANGE US.

Pat: PEOPLE THINK THAT

DEMONS AREN'T REAL, AND IT

IS SORT OF A MENTAL

ABERRATION.

AND IF SOMEONE IS

DEMON-POSSESSED, THEY HAVE

TO GO TO A PSYCHIATRIC OR

GET SOME TREATMENT WITH

ANTI-DEPRESSANT DRUGS, BUT

THE TRUTH IS THOSE ARE

REAL.

THERE ARE FALLEN ANGELS.

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT SATAN

AND HIS MINIONQ HOW THEY

CAME TO EARTH AND THEY WERE

IN REBELLION AGAINST GOD.

AND WHEN YOU SEE WHAT JESUS

DID, FOR EXAMPLE, THERE WAS

A DEMONIAC IN A PLACE CALL

GEDERA, AT THE SEA OF

GALILEE, IN THAT AREA.

AND THIS MAN WAS OUT

SCREAMING AND YELLING

BECAUSE OF THE THINGS INSIDE

OF HIM.

AND HE CAME WHEN HE SAW

JESUS, AND HE FELL DOWN AT

HIS FEET, AND HE SAID, DON'T

TORMENT ME BEFORE THE TIME.

AND THE LORD SPOKE NOT TO

HIM, BUT TO THE DEMONS AND

SAID, YOU COME OUT OF HIM.

HOW MANY ARE YOU?

AND THEY SAID, THERE ARE A

LEGION

THEM.

AND THIS ONE MAN, HE WAS

WILD.

AND THE PEOPLE SENT HIM OFF

BY HIMSELF.

THEY PUT CHAINS ON HIM,

TRIED TO BIND HIM, AND

NOTHING WOULD HOLD HIM

BECAUSE OF THIS INCREDIBLE

FORCE THAT WAS INSIDE OF

HIM.

YOU SEE, DEMONS ARE REAL.

THEY'RE BIBLICALLY

AUTHENTICATED.

AND I PROMISE YOU IN TODAY'S

WORLD I HAVE ENCOUNTERED

DEMONIC POSSESSION.

BUT, YOU SEE, DEMONS ARE

SUBJECT TO THE WORD OF GOD,

SUBJECT TO JESUS CHRIST.

THOSE DEMONS IN THAT MAN IN

GEDERO WERE CAST OUT BY

JESUS.

THEY SAID, DON'T TORMENT US

BECAUSE THEY KNEW HE WAS THE

SON OF GOD.

THEY SAID, DON'T SEND US TO

THE PIT, BUT LET US GO UNTO

THOSE PIGS OVER THERE.

BUT HE WAS IN CHARGE OF

THEM.

THEY DID WHAT HE SAID

BECAUSE HE HAS ALL AUTHORITY

IN HEAVEN AND EARTH.

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT JESUS,

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT SOME

WEAKLING ON A CROSS THAT IS

MEEK AND MILD AND ALL OF

THAT.

HE IS LORD OF EVERYTHING.

ALL AUTHORITY ON HEAVEN AND

EARTH HAS BEEN GIVEN UNTO

ME, HE SAID.

HE HAS AUTHORITY OVER

DEMONS.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, JUST

BECAUSE YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW

IS DISAGREEABLE DOESN'T MEAN

SHE HAS A DEMON.

JUST BECAUSE YOUR HUSBAND IS

ILL-TEMPERED DOESN'T MEAN HE

IS DEMON-POSSESSED.

THERE IS MENTAL ILLNESS AND

ALL THESE THINGS, BUT THERE

ARE ALSO DEMONIC ATTACKS.

AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IN

THE NAME OF JESUS IS TAKE

AUTHORITY OVER THEM, SPEAK

THE WORD AND CAST THEM FORTH

IN JESUS' NAME.

YOU DON'T SING TO DEMONS.

YOU DON'T SING LULLABIES TO

DEMONS.

YOU COMMAND THEM IN THE NAMEOF JESUS TO LEAVE.

JULIA WAS BEING ATTACKED.

I DON'T THINK SHE WAS

POSSESSED, BUT SHE WAS BEING

ATTACKED SEVERELY.

BECAUSE WHERE SHE WAS WAS A

NEST OF DEMONIC ACTIVITY.

AND SHE WAS ENGAGING IN AN

ACTIVITY WHICH WAS

SANCTIONED, IF YOU WILL, BY

THE DEMONS.

I DON'T WANT TO SPEND

ANYMORE TIME ON THIS, BUT I

DO WANT YOU TO KNOW THERE IS

DELIVERANCE IN JESUS.

AT THE CROSS THERE IS

DELIVERANCE.

I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD.

AND I WANT YOU TO PRAY A

PRAYER WITH ME AT THIS

MOMENT.

IF THERE IS SIN IN YOUR

LIFE, SOMETHING YOU KNOW

YOU'VE DONE IS WRONG, IF YOU

ENGAGE IN AN ACTIVITY WHICH

BORDERS ON THE DEMONIC, I

WANT YOU TO PRAY.

PRAY

THESE

WORDS, JESUS --

JESUS, I KNOW YOU'RE LORD.

I KNOW YOU'RE LORD OF

EVERYTHING.

I KNOW THAT ALL AUTHORITY IN

HEAVEN AND EARTH HAS BEEN

GIVEN UNTO YOU.

NOW, LORD, IN YOUR NAME, I

CALL UPON YOU AND ASK YOU TO

SET ME FREE FROM THOSE

FORCES THAT WOULD SURROUND

ME.

AND, SATAN, I SPEAK A WORD

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

I COMMAND YOU TO LOOSEN ME

NOW.

I COMMAND YOU TO LOOSEN MY

LOVED ONES.

I COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE ME.

AND THE FORCES OF EVIL.

IN JESUS' NAME.

THANK

THANK YOU.

NOW, I WANT TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED

WITH ME, MAY THE POWER OF

GOD TOUCH THEM AND MAY THEY

KNOW COMPLETE DEFERENCE IN

JESUS' NAME.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING THAT WILL HELP

YOU.

IT'S CALLED "ANGELS, DEMONS,

AND THE END TIMES."

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT THE

BIBLE HAS TO SAY ABOUT THIS

IMPORTANT TIME.

"ANGELS, DEMONS, AND THE END

TIMES."

I'LL SEND THIS TO YOU FREE,

SO YOU CAN KNOW MORE ABOUT

IT.

THE BIGGEST THING IS, LIVE

FOR THE LORD AND BEGIN TO

PRAISE HIM AND RECEIVE WHAT

HE HAS DONE FOR YOU.

HE IS LORD.

AND IF ANY OF YOU ARE STILL

UNDER ATTACK OF ANY DEMONIC

POWER, THE WORD IS, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS, I BIND YOUR

POWER, SATAN, AND THE FORCES

OF EVIL, AND CAST YOU

FORTH.

AND GOD WILL HEAR, AND THE

DEMONS WILL OBEY.

THE NUMBER TO CALL, IF YOU

PRAYED WITH ME, IS

1-800-759-0700.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU.

THEY WILL TAKE YOUR CALL.

IF YOU NEED FURTHER PRAYER,

THEY'RE HERE FOR YOU.

HERE IS TERRY WITH MORE.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

TANTRUMS RIVALLED THOSE OF

HER KIDS.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: TEMPER TANTRUMS,

CRYING SPELLS, AND POWER

STRUGGLES, ALL OF THESE ADD

UP TO ONE BIG MOMMYC:

MELTDOWN, ESPECIALLY IF

MOMMY IS STRIECH STRIVING

TO BE THE, QUOTE,"PERFECT

PARENT."

Reporter: AS THE MOTHER

OF THREE BOYS, JEANNIE

CUNNION SAYS SHE WAS

DETERMINED TO BE THE PERFECT

MOM AND HAVE THE PERFECT

KIDS.

BUT HER PERFECT PLAN

UNRAVELED WHEN THE TEMPER

TANTRUMS AND CRYING BECAME

OVERWHELMING.

AND SHE STARTED USING HER

BIG VOICE MORE THAN SHE

WANTED.

JEANNIE SAYS WE ALL NEED TO

BE REMINDED THAT NEITHER WE,

NOR OUR KIDS, ARE PERFECT.

IN "PARENTING THE

WHOLEHEARTED CHILD," JEANNIE

GIVES YOU PRACTICAL IDEAS IN

LEARNING HOW TO PARENT WITH

GRACE.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," JEANNIE

CUNNION.

IT GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: AS THE MOTHER OF

SMALL CHILDREN, EVERYONE WHO

HAS HAD KIDS UNDERSTANDS THE

PULL AND THE TUG AND THE

RESPONSIBILITY AND THE

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS.

YES.

Terry: HOW DID YOU

ORIGINALLY PARENT YOUR

CHILDREN?

HONESTLY, TERRY, MY GOAL

WAS TO BE A PERFECT MOM, TO

RAISE PERFECT KIDS.

I THOUGHT, I HAVE ONE SHOT

AT THIS.

I WANT TO BE PERFECTLY

PATIENT, PERFECTLY LOVING,

AND PERFECTLY KIND.

Terry:PRACTICALLY

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY.

YES.

THAT INTENSITY OF LOVE YOU

HAVE FOR YOUR KIDS AND YOU

WANT TO GIVE THEM SO MUCH.

Terry: AND I THINK

YOU'RE SO AWARE OF YOUR

SHORTCOMINGS, ALL OF US AS

PARENTS ARE, AND YOU SAID, I

DON'T WANT TO BLOW THIS.

YOU GET ONE CHANCE.

IT WAS ACTUALLY YOUR

DAUGHTER, WHO IS ADORABLE,

BY THE WAY, WHO HAD A CLASS

PROJECT THAT KIND OF SHOWED

YOU YOU NEEDED TO MAKE SOME

MY SON WAS FOUR YEARS

OLD, AND THEY DID A CLASS

PROJECT.

AND ON THE FRONT, IT

SAID, "MY FAMILY."

I OPENED IT UP THINKING THIS

IS GOING TO BE SUCH A SWEET

CARD AND WE'LL ALL HUG AND

TALK ABOUT HOW GREAT WE

ARE.

AND I OPENED THE CAR, AND IT

ESSENTIALLY SAID, MY BROTHER

CRIES A LOT, MY MOM SCREAMS

A LOT, AND SHE ALSO

2"TiTáUES LOOKS AT THE(

AND THAT'S THE ENDyOF MY

STORY.

Terry: WOW!

WHAT DID YOU FEEL AFTER ALL

YOU WERE INVESTING?

I THOUGHT, THAT'S NOT MY

CHILD.

I'M TRYING SO HARD TO GET IT

RIGHT, THAT CAN'T BE MY

CHILD'S STORY.

AND GOD USED THAT CARD TO

OPEN UP MY EYES TO THE FACT

THAT PERFECTION HAD BECOME

ANIDOL IN MY EYES.

AND IT HADSTOLEN THE JOY

AND THE ADVENTURE AND THE

WONDER OUT OF MY PARENTING.

Terry: ANYONE, I THINK,

WOULD SEE RELIANCE AS A

POSITIVE THING.

WE TRY TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN

TO BECOME SELF-RELENIENT,

BU RELIANT.

BUT THENTO BEEEDS

UNDERSTANDING.I IMMEDIATELY THINK OF

THEVERSE IN CORINTHIANS,

WHERE GOD SAYS, "MY GRACE IS

SUFFICIENT FOR YOU, AND MY

POWERIS MADE PERFECT IN

YOUR WEAKNESS.

MY GRA GRACE IS ALL YOU

NEED."

THE WORLD TELLSUS TO BE

SELF-RELIANT.

AND GRACE REMINDS ME IT IS

NOT ALL UP TOME, AND THAT

GRACE COVERS MY MISTAKES AS

A MOM.

Terry: BUT THERE HAD TO

BE, ALSO, A SURRENDERING OF

SOME THINGS THAT HAD BECOME

TRAITS IN THE MIDST OF JUST

THE PANDEMONIUM OF

PARENTING.

THERE WAS YELLING GOING ON

IN YOUR HOUSE.

HOW DID GOD BEGIN TO WORK IN

YOUR HEART TOCHANGE

BEHAVIOR PATTERNS?

HESHOWED ME HOW I HAD

SPENT SO MUCH TIMETEACHING

MY CHILDREN ABOUT WHAT THEY

AND I SPENT SO LITTLE TIME

TEACHINGJESUS HAD

ALREADY DONE FORTHEM.

ANDAN IMPORTANT PART OF

RAISINGCHILDREN, IS RAISING

CHILDREN IN THEFREEDOM.

IN ORDER TODO THAT, WE

FIRST, AS PARENTS, HAVE TO

ACCEPT THAT GRACE.

WE CAN'T GIVE WHAT WE

HAVEN'T RECEIVED.

SO GOD BEGAN TO OPEN MY EYES

TO HIS GRACE,(%áejTJT)URJá LOVE FOR ME.

Terry: FOR YOU, NOT AS

A MOM.

YES.

I WASIN THE EARLY DAYS OF

PARENTHOOD, IN THE TRENCHES,

AND IT IS EXHAUSTING AND

CHAOTIC.

AND GOD OPENED MYEYES TO

HIS LOVE FOR ME.

IN MYWORST MOMMY MOMENTS

ANDIN MY BEST MOMMY

MOMENTS, HE HELPED ME ACCEPT

THE FACT THAT HIS LOVE FOR

ME NEVER WAIVERS.

Terry: WHAT ARE SOME

PRACTICAL WAYS YOU WERE ABLE

TO TAKE THATTRUTH THAT GOD

WASTEACHING YOU AND APPLY

IT TO YOUR PARENTING.

I THINK IT IS THE DAILY

SURRENDERING OF GOD'S LOVE

TO ME.

AND FOR RAISING A

WHOLEHEARTED CHILD, YOU NEED

TO NURTURE THEIR LOVE FOR

CHRIST, AND THAT GODIS NOT

ONLY THEIR PERFECT, LOVING

FATHER, BUT HE ISALSO THEIR

VERY BEST FRIEND.

ANDNURTURING THAT IN THEIR

HEARTS.

AND TEACHING THEM ABOUT

GOD'S LOVE FOR THEMIN THEIR

BEST AND WORST MOMENTS.

I THINK THERE IS A FREEDOM

FROM HAVING TO PERFORM FOR

ONE ANOTHER.

FROM HAVING TO PRETEND WE'RE

PERFECT.

WHEN WE REMEMBER THAT GOD'S

LOVE FOR US NEVER WAIVERS.

Terry: THE WHOLE POINT

OF FORGIVENESS, SUCH A HUGE

ISSUE.

AS YOU SHARED ALL OF THIS

WITH YOUR CHILDREN, HOW DID

ITCHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR?

I THINK FORGIVENESS IS

ONE OFTHE MOST WONDERFUL

THINGS THAT HAS HAPPENED IN

OUR FAMILY.

WEENJOYING THE GIFT

THAT GOD GIVESUS IN CHRIST,

THROUGH FORGIVENESS.

I USED TO THINK THAT MY

PRIMARY ROLE OF A PARENT WAS

TOBE A PERFECT EXAMPLE FOR

MY KIDS TO FOLLOW.

AND WHAT THE LORD IS HELPING

ME UNDERSTAND ON A DAILY

BASIS IS THAT ACTUALLY MY

ROLE AS AIS TO POINT

THEM TO GOD, THEIR HEAVENLY

FATHER, THEIR ONLY PERFECT

PARENT.

MY JOB IS TO LET THEM SEE MY

IMPERFECTION, MY NEED FOR

CHRIST, AND MY TRUST IN HIS

GRACE.

I HAVE SEEN THAT INFLUENCE

THEM.

THEY ARE BOYS, THEY ARE

PHYSICAL.

THEY ARE HUMAN.

AND THEY GET IT WRONG, JUST

AS I GET ITWRONG.

YET WHATWE HAVE EXPERIENCED

IN OUR FAMILY IS THE ABILITY

TO ENJOY FORGIVENESS.

WHEN THEY SEE ME SAY, GUYS,

I'M SORRY.

MOMMY IS NOT THE MOM SHE

WANTS TO BE TODAY.

AND THEYSHOWS THEM ALTHOUGH

THEY MAKE MISTAKES, THEY CAN

SAY TO EACH OTHER, I'M SORRY

I JUST HIT YOU.

I SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE THAT.

WILL YOU FORGIVE ME?

Terry: AND TO

UNDERSTAND THAT GOD RECEIVES

US TO HIMSELF AND GIVES US

BRAND NEW BEGINNINGS DAY

AFTER DAY AFTER DAY.

IT IS A WONDERFUL BOOK.

IF YOU'RE IN THE MIDST OF

PARENTING OR GRANDPARENTING,

IT IS A WONDERFUL BOOK TO

READ.

JEANNIE'S BOOK IS CALLED

"PARENTING THE WHOLEHEARTED

CHILD."

IT IS AN ENCOURAGING MESSAGE

FOR PARENTS.

PAT?

Pat: THANK YOU, TERRY.

WE'VE GOT UP NEXT E-MAILS.

PEPERS SILL LAILLA SAYS,

"IS IT WRONG TO HAVE SEX

WITH A PARTNER WITH WHOM

I'VE BEEN LIVING WITH FOR

YEARS?"

THAT'S AN INTERESTING

QUESTION, AND I'LL GIVE AN

ANSWER WHEN WE "BRING IT

ON," NEXT.

PRISCILLA

Pat: THIS IS ONE OF THE

MOST EXCITING EDUCATIONAL

INSTITUTIONS IN THE WORLD.

I WAS JUST MEETING YESTERDAY

WITH THE FACULTY OF THE

SCHOOL OF DIVINITY, AND WE

HAVE MAYBE ONE OF THE TOP 10

DIVINITY SCHOOLS IN

AMERICA&4j4(P&Cú

AND WE'RE REACHING OUT TO

THE WORLD.

SO WE'VE GOT A DEGREE IN

DIVINITY.

WE'VE GOT A DEGREE IN

COMMUNICATIONS, TELEVISION,

THEATER, AND NOW THEY'RE

GOING TO START DOING SOME

MOVIES, AND THAT'S KIND OF

FUN, TOO.

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

YOU CAN LOG ON TO REGENTj4(P&Cú

REGENT.EDU.

THERE IT IS ON THE SCREEN,

THAT'S THE NUMBER YOU CAN

CALL.

OTHERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

THINGS GOING ON, DOCTORAL

PROGRAMS, MASTER'S PROGRAMS,

ALL KINDS OF THINGS.

AND THE THING I'M PUSHING

RIGHT NOW IS THAT WE CAN

MAKE AVAILABLE A FOUR-YEAR

UNDERGRADUATE BACCALAUREATE

I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE A

GAME-CHANGER.

Terry: PRETTY MUCH

UNHEARD OF.

Pat: IT WILL BE HEARD

OF HERE, AND WE'LL TALK

ABOUT IT A LOT.

IT WILL TAKE ABOUT A YEAR.

Terry: TIME FOR SOME

E-MAIL.

LET'S "BRING IT ON."

THIS FIRST ONE SAYS, "IS IT

WRONG TO HAVE SEX WITH MY

PARTNER WITH WHOM I'VE BEEN

LIVING TOGETHER FOR FOUR

YEARS.

PEOPLE SAY WE ARE COMMON

LAW, AND WE BOTH BELIEVE IN

GOD, AND I WAS BAPTIZED

RECENTLY."

Pat: WELL, GRAZELLE,

GOOD FOR YOU.

OUR ATTITUDES OF SEX ARE

BIZARRE TODAY.

THE BIBLE CALLS WHAT YOU'RE

DOING IS FORNICATION BECAUSE

YOU'RE NOT MARRIED.

AND SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE

IS IMMORTALITY AND

FORNICATION.

NOW, AS I'VE SAID A NUMBER

OF TIMES, AND I'VE PROBABLY

SHOCKED PEOPLE, BUT I DO

BELIEVE IFAND YOUR

SIGNIFICANT OTHER WOULD

COMMIT YOURSELF TO A LIFE

TOGETHER, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO

BE SOLIDIFIED BY A JUSTICE

OF THE PEACE OR A PASTOR.

BUT TO GET THE BENEFITS OF

THE GOVERNMENT AND ALL OF

THE THINGS THAT GO ALONG

WITH IT, YOU WANT TO GET A

MARRIAGE LICENSE AND GET

MARRIED.

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU?

YOU'VE BEEN LIVING TOGETHER

FOR FOUR YEARS NOW, WHY

CAN'T YOU GET MARRIED?

WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?

YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY LIVING

TOGETHER, SO YOU'RE HAVING

SEX TOGETHER, AND YOU'RE

LIVING LIKE MARRIED PEOPLE

ACT, BUT YOUR NOT MARRIED.

WHICH MEANS ONE OF YOU IS

NOT WILLING Tz TAKE ON THE

RESPONSIBILITIES OF A

MARRIAGE.

MARRIAGE IS A PRETTY GOOD

IDEA.

I'M COMING UP ON 60 YEARS.

Terry: AND I'M COMING

UP ON 33.

Pat: I HAVE 14

GRANDCHILDREN.

I HAVE -- I WAS GOING TO SAY

FOUR AND A HALF -- THE THING

ABOUT BE FRUITFUL AND

MULTIPLY WE HAVE TAKEN TO

HEART IN OUR FAMILY.

I'M LOOKING ON GOING ON

FIVE, FIVE AND A HALF

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.

AND THEY'RE SO SWEET AND SO

PRECIOUS.

SO, DARLING, GET MARRIED.

STOP FOOLING AROUND.

AND BUILD A FAMILY AND BUILD

A LIFE TOGETHER.

Terry: THIS IS CAROL

WHO SAYS, "MY NIECE JUST

GRADUATED FROM A CATHOLIC

UNIVERSITY AND HAS NOW COME

HOW SHOULD I, AS A

CHRISTIAN, RESPOND TO THE

SITUATION WHEN I MEET HER

PARTNER AT FAMILY FUNCTIONS

AND AT HOLIDAYS?"

Pat: THE LAST THING YOU

WANT TO BE A JUDGEMENTAL.

YOU WANT TO BE LOVING AND

WARM AND LET THEM KNOW THAT

YOU LOVE THEM.

BUT YOU CANNOT ACCEPT THAT.

YOU CANNOT BE AN ENABLER.

IF THEY'RE LIVING TOGETHER

AS A HOMOSEXUAL AND YOU'RE A

CHRISTIAN, YOU CANNOT SAY I

EXCEPT THIS LIFESTYLE.

RIGHT NOW THERE IS AN

INCREDIBLE BARAGE OF

ACTIVITY, FORCING PEOPLE TO

ACCEPT THE HOMOSEXUAL

LIFESTYLE.

WELL, DO WE ACCEPT

ADULTERY?

DO WE ACCEPT FORNICATION?

IS THAT SOMETHING WE'RE

GOING TO BE FORCED TO DO?

THE ANSWER IS, NO, I DON'T

THINK WE OUGHT TO BE

ACCEPTING OF IT.

BUT YOU NEED TO ALWAYS HAVE

LOVE.

THERE ARE SOME HOMOSEXUALS

WHO HAVE AN ENORMOUS

CAPACITY FOR ARTISTIC

EXPRESSION.

YOU FIND A LOT OF THIS IN

THE HOMOSEXUAL COMMUNITY.

AND VERY TALENTED PEOPLE.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE NEED TO

HAVE LOVE.

I'M A GREAT ADVOCA

LOVE.

SO WE'RE NOT JUDGEMENTAL.

JUDGE NOT THAT YOU BE NOT

JUDGED.

SO WE'RE ACCEPTING.

AND WE'RE BLESSED.

BUT WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND

DONE, WE CANNOT SAY WE'RE

GOING TO PUT THE CHRISTIAN

CHURCH OVER SOMETHING THAT

GOD HIMSELF CALLS A SIN.

Terry: THIS IS CARLIN

WHO SAYS, "MORE THAN 40

YEARS AGO I BECAME A BORN

AGAIN CHRISTIAN AND RECEIVED

THE GIFT OF SPEAKING IN

TONGUES.

I WAS PLAYING WITH A QUIJA

BOARD AND WEIRD THINGS

HAPPENED.

I NEVER PICKED IT UP AGAIN,

BUT I THINK SOMETHING

ATTACHED TO ME.

RECENTLY I WAS WATCHING A

NEWS REPORT ON THE MIDDLE

EAST, AND I NOTICED THAT MY

PRAYERS SOUND LIKE THAT.

I'M AFRAID I MIGHT NOT BE

PRAYING TO OUR LO$9ñ

I DO NOT HAVE THE GIFT OF

SPEAKING IN TONGUES, SO I

WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR

SUGGESTIONS."

Pat: I THINK YOU SHOULD

FIND A PASTOR THAT IS

KNOWLEDGE IABLABLE OF

WORKING IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.

YOU OUGHT TO SHARE THESE

THINGS WITH THAT PASTOR AND

SEE WHAT THE DEAL IS.

I THINK DEALING WITH OUIJA

BOARDS -- ANY TIME YOU

SUBMIT YOURSELF TO THE

OCCULT, YOU'RE KA ASKING

THE OCCULT TO TAKE OVER.

YOU THINK SOMEHOW GOD

ALLOWED SOME DEMON TO TAKE

YOU OVER -- I FIND THAT HARD

TO BELIEVE.

YOU NEED SOMEONE TO COUNSEL

YOU ON THAT.

Terry: BILL SAYS, "PAT,t BEEN A CHRISTIAN FORTKR

YEARS, BUT I'M OFTEN

TORMENTED BY FEAR AND

ANXIETY.

I KNOW THAT GOD SAYS PERFECT

LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR.

HOW DO I ASSIMILATE THAT TO

BE MORE REAL IN MY LIFE?"

Pat: ONCE UPON A TIME I

WAS IN AN AIRPLANE, AND THE

AIRPLANE STARTED GOING DOWN

IN THE CARRIBEAN.

AND I HAD TO MAKE A

CONSCIOUS DECISION THAT,

LORD, I'M READY(TN DIE.

IF THIS THING GOES DOWN, I'M

READY.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN PEACE

CAME INTO MY HEART.

YOU HAVE TO SPEND SOME TIME

AND CONSCIOUSLY THINK ABOUT

IT.

SO WHAT IF I DIE?

IS THAT THE WORST THAT IS

GOING TO HAPPEN?

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO

ME WHEN I DIE?

I LOVE JESUS.

WHEN I DIE, I'M GOING TO BE

WITH HIM.

I'LL BE IN PARADISE FOR ALL

ETERNITY.

SO WHAT HAVE I GOT TO BE

AGRAID OF?

AND YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH

THAT.

THAT'S THE ULTIMATE.

IF YOU TAKE CARE OF THE

DEATH QUESTION, THEN YOU CAN

DEAL WITH THESE OTHERS

BETTER THAN THAT.

BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT

FEAR.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE IN PSALMS:

"TAKE DELIGHT IN THE LORD,

AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE

DESIRES OF YOUR HEART."

FOR TERRY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

BYE-BYE.
