Author Kevin Leman discusses the indelible imprint a father leaves on his daughter’s life. Plus, a communist defector finds God after a healing miracle. Read Transcript


I WOULDN'T SAY THEY'RE

BROKEN.

A HOME FOR THE HOMELESS.

THE UNIQUE OUTREACH TO OUR

INVISIBLE PROBLEM.

IT IS A QUESTION OF

DIGNITY.

PLUS, THE MAN WHO WROTE

THE BOOK ON PARENTING,

SEVERAL TIMES.

KEVIN LEMAN SHARES THE

IMPORTANCE OF THE

DADDY-DAUGHTER BOND.

AND THEN A FISHERMAN WHO

COULDN'T GET ON THE BOAT.

HE WAS IN A LOT OF PAIN,

TO THE POINT WHERE HE WAS

IMMOBILE.

HEAR HOW HE WAS HEALED.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THE PROMISES KEEP FLOWING

OUT OF WASHINGTON.

ISN'T IT WONDERFUL?

IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR, YOU

CAN KEEP HIM.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTH

CARE, YOU CAN KEEP IT.

YOUR HEALTH CARE WILL NOT GO

UP IN PRICE.

IT WILL GO DOWN.

WE'RE GOING TO STIMULATE THE

ECONOMY.

IT'S GOING TO BE WONDERFUL.

AND EVERYBODY WILL LIVE

HAPPILY EVER AFTER.

WELL, IT ISN'T ALWAYS TRUE.

ANYHOW, THE PRESIDENT IS

PROMISING TO PREVENT

THOUSANDS OF HEART ATTACKS

AND ASTHMA EPISODES.

MAYBE HE IS IN TOUCH WITH

THE DIVINE SOMEHOW.

HE SAYS HIS NEW CRACKDOWN ON

CARBON GAS EMISSIONS FROM

POWER PLANTS WILL HEAL

AMERICA.

Terry: BUT CRITICS SAY

THAT'S CODE FOR A WAR ON

COAL.

THEY ARGUE HIS PLAN WILL

ACTUALLY HURT AMERICANS BY

KILLING JOBS AND HIKING

ELECTRIC BILLS.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: POWER PLANTS

HAVE ALREADY REDUCED THEIR

CARBON EMISSION NEARLY 13%

SINCE 2005, BUT THE

PRESIDENT'S PLAN WILL FORCE

ANOTHER 17% BY THE YEAR

2030.

THIS IS ABOUT PROTECTING

OUR HEALTH, AND IT IS ABOUT

PROTECTING OUR HOMES.

Reporter: CRITICS SAY,

HOWEVER, THAT THE

PRESIDENT'S PLAN WILL KILL

JOBS.

THEY'RE CONCERNED THAT MANY

COMPANIES THAT RELY ON COAL

AS A POWER SOURCE WILL NO

LONGER BE ABLE TO AFFORD IT,

THANKS TO THE NEW

REGULATIONS.

ANY WAY YOU LOOK AT IT,

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

AMERICANS ARE GOING TO BE

OUT OF WORK, AND THIS IS

DURING A TIME WHERE THE

ECONOMY IS VERY, VERY WEAK

TO START WITH.

THE U.S. CHAMBER OF

COMMERCE SAYS THE NEW PLAN

WILL LEAD TO THE LAWS OF

224,000 JOBS EACH YEAR FOR

THE NEXT 14 YEARS.

THE ANNUAL COST TO THE U.S.

ECONOMY, $51 BILLION.

ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS

THAT COMING INTO EFFECT WILL

RETIRE 60% OF TODAY'S COAL

FLEET.

Reporter: THIS KENTUCKY

BUSINESS BUYS AND SELLS

MINING EQUIPMENT.

IF THE POWER PLANTS ARE

USING AS MUCH COAL, THE

MINES WON'T NEED AS MUCH

EQUIPMENT, AND THIS COMPANY

MAY LEAVE KENTUCKY.

IF MINING BECAME THAT BAD

ON THIS PART OF THE UNITED

STATES, THEN ABSOLUTELY, IT

COULD BE NECESSARY FOR US TO

RELOCATE OUR BUSINESS.

Reporter: AND BECAUSE

40% OF THE NATION'S

ELECTRICITY COMES FROM COAL,

HIGHER ELECTRICITY COSTS ARE

EXPECTED, WHICH WILL HURT

CONSUMERS AS WELL.

WITHIN THE FIVE-YEAR

PERIOD AFTER IT GOES INTO

EFFECT, IN MANY STATES

YOU'LL HAVE A DOUBLE-DIGIT

INCREASE IN ELECTRICITY

PRICES.

Reporter: THE PLAN

SERVES AS THE CENTER PIECE

OF THE PRESIDENT'S EFFORTS

TO DEAL WITH CLIMATE

CHANGE.

IT'S FUTURE IS UNCERTAIN.

IT MUST SURVIVE LEGAL AND

OTHER CHALLENGES, AND

SCRAPPING IT COULD BE

POSSIBLE IF REPUBLICANS TAKE

THE SENATE IN NOVEMBER.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT DO THEY SAY,

THE INMATES HAVE TAKEN OVER

THE ASYLUM?

IT IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE.

THERE SEEMS TO BE NO

RELATIONSHIP TO ACTUAL

ON-GROUND ACTIVITY.

THESE ARE ZEALITS, AND

THEY'RE HOL HIGHLY

MOTIVATED ZEALITS, AND THEY

WORSHIP THE CLIMATE.

I DON'T WANT TO BREATHE

NASTY AIR, AND I'M SURE YOU

DON'T WANT TO EITHER.

AND WE WANT TO DO EVERYTHING

WE CAN TO CONTAIN THOSE

EMISSIONS.

I WAS IN BEIJING, I GUESS IT

WAS AROUND EASTER TIME, AS I

RECALL, AND THE SMOG WAS SO

BAD THAT YOU COULD HARDLY

BREATHE AND YOU COULD HARDLY

SEE WHERE YOU WERE GOING.

IT WAS JUST AWFUL.

Terry: THERE ARE

POCKETS LIKE THAT,

ESPECIALLY TUCKED INTO A ONE

SIDE OF A MOUNTAIN RANGE

THAT YOU SEE THE IMPACT OF

IT.

ON THE OTHER HAND, 40% OF

OUR ELECTRIC PRODUCTION

COMES FROM COAL.

Pat: IT IS GOING TO

CRIPPLE OUR ECONOMY.

IT'S AS IF THEY DON'T CARE.

IT'S AS IF THEY DON'T CARE

ABOUT THE ECONOMIC ENGINE

THAT MAKES THIS COUNTRY

PROSPEROUS.

YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND

IT.

MAYBE THEY'LL BE AN

ELECTION, AND MAYBE THEY'LL

BE A CHANGE, BUT I WOULDN'T

HOLD MY BREATH.

ANOTHER POTENTIALLY HARMFUL

EXAMPLE OF OUR BIG

GOVERNMENT ENGINEERING IN

OUR LIVES IS NOW BREWING IN

SEATTLE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON THAT

STORY FROM OUR CBN NEWS

BUREAU IN WASHINGTON.

HERE'S JOHN.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

SEATTLE IS RAISING ITS

MINIMUM WAGE TO $15 AN

HOUR.

THE HIGHEST IN THE COUNTRY.

CITY ACTIVISTS CELEBRATED

WHAT THEY CONSIDERED THE

BEGINNING OF A NATIONAL

MOVEMENT TO CLOSE THE GAP

BETWEEN THE RICH AND THE

POOR.

THE WAGE INCREASE BEGINS

NEXT APRIL AND WILL BE

PHASED IN OVER SEVERAL

YEARS.

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS SAY

THEY'LL BE PASSING ON THE

INCREASED COSTS TO COSTUMERS

BY RAISING PRICES ON GOODS

AND SERVICES.

A GROUP OF RESTAURANT OWNERS

OPPOSED THE RAISE SAYING IT

WOULD LIMIT HIRING

OPPORTUNITIES AND CUT

HOURS.

THERE IS GROWING FALLOUT

OVER THE RELEASE OF SERGEANT

BOWE BERGDAHL.

NEW INFORMATION IS COMING TO

LIGHT ABOUT THE CAPTURE.

THE U.S. ARMY NOW SAYS IT

MAY PURSUE AN INVESTIGATION

AFTER HIS FELLOW SOLDIERS

SAY HE WAS ONLY CAPTURED

AFTER DESERTING HIS ARMY

UNIT.

HE WALKED AWAY.

HE TALKED TO OTHER MEMBERS

OF THE PLATOON.

HE TALKED ABOUT, I JUST WANT

TO GO OVER THOSE MOUNTAINS.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

CRITICS SAY THE DEAL

VIOLATES AMERICA'S

LONG-STANDING POLICY OF NOT

NEGOTIATING WITH

TERRORISTS.

AND MANY HAVE FAULTED

PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR NOT

GIVING CONGRESS 30 DAYS

NOTICE OF A PRISONER

CHANGE.

HE SAID HE HAS CONSULTED

CONGRESS IN THE PAST ABOUT

THE CASE.

Pat: THE PRESIDENT

CONSULTED THE PRESIDENT, AND

THE WHITE HOUSE CONSULTED

THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND THE WHITE HOUSE REACTED

TO THE OPINION THE WHITE

HOUSE HAD GIVEN.

A LITTLE CIRCULAR, BUT

THAT'S THE WAY THEY DID IT.

IT SEEMS LIKE THERE WERE A

NUMBER OF CASUALTIES AND

DEATHS FROM PEOPLE TRYING TO

FIND THIS MAN, TRYING TO,

QUOTE,"FREE HIM FROM

CAPTIVITY," NOT BEING ABLE

TO ATTEND TO THE JOB THAT

WAS GIVEN THEM IN THEIR

UNITS.

IT HAS BEEN A MESS.

AND SUSAN RICE WENT ON

TELEVISION, ONCE AGAIN PUT

HER FOOT SQUARELY IN HER

MOUTH, SAYING THIS MAN IS A

MILITARY HERO.

HE IS NO SUCH THING.

IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS A

DESERTER WHO HELD RATHER

STRANGE VIEWS ABOUT THE

UNITED STATES, ABOUT THE

MILITARY, AND HE JUST DIDN'T

LIKE THE SYSTEM.

AND AS A RESULT PEOPLE HAVE

DIED BECAUSE OF HIM.

HE IS NOT A HERO.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, THE U.S.

OPENLY WELCOMED THE NEW

UNITY GOVERNMENT OF MAHMOUD

ABBAS, EVEN THOUGH HIS

PARTNER IS THE HAMAS

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

THE MOVE DREW SHARP

REACTIONS FROM CONGRESS, AND

ABROAD IN ISRAEL.

Reporter: PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY MAHMOUD ABBAS

SWORE IN HIS UNITY

GOVERNMENT ON MONDAY, AND

ENDED SEVEN YEARS OF

DIVISION BETWEEN HAMAS AND

FATAH.

WE CALL ON THAT COMMUNITY

TO IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZE THE

GOVERNMENT AND CONTINUE TO

SUPPORT THE PALESTINIAN

POLITICAL LEADERSHIP, TO

ENABLE THE GOVERNMENT TO

FACE ALL POLITICAL

CHALLENGES, ESPECIALLY THE

POLICIES.

Reporter: ISRAEL

EXPRESSED ITS DISAPPOINTMENT

AND THREATENED SANCTIONS

AGAINST THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY.

OFFICIALS HERE IN JERUSALEM

WARNED THE WORLD COMMUNITY

THAT THERE IS A GREAT DEAL

AT STAKE.

BY RECOGNIZING THIS NEW

GOVERNMENT, THEY'RE ALSO

EMBRACING A TERRORIST

GROUP.

HAMAS IS A RUTHLESS

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MURDER

OF COUNTLESS INNOCENT

CIVILIANS, AND AN

ORGANIZATION THAT SAYS N MY

COUNTRY, ISRAEL, SHOULD BE

DESTROYED.

Reporter: BUT THE STATE

DEPARTMENT SAYS IT WILL

JUDGE THE NEW GOVERNMENT BY

ITS ACTIONS.

WE'LL BE WATCHING CLOSELY

TO ENSURE IT UP HOLDS THE

PRINCIPLES THAT PRESIDENT

ABBAS REITERATED TODAY.

THE STATE OF ISRAEL IS

DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED IN THE

STATEMENTS MADE YESTERDAY BY

THE STATE DEPARTMENT

SPOKESPERSON, TO NOT

IMMEDIATELY REJECT HAMAS, TO

NOT CALL ON MAHMOUD ABBAS TO

BREAK AWAY FROM HAMAS, IS A

VERY BIG MISTAKE.

Reporter: IT ALSO PUTS

THE U.S. ADMINISTRATION AT

ODDS WITH THE U.S.

CONGRESS.

REPUBLICAN SENATORS MARK RUB

MARCO RUBIO AND MARK KIRK

CALL ON THE U.S. TO HALT

U.S. AID TO THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY, SAYING U.S. LAW

IS CLEAR.

THE ADMINISTRATION'S INITIAL

REACTION TO CONTINUE AID IS

OUTRAGEOUS, AND RUNS COUNTER

TO EXISTING LAW.

WE CALL ON THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TO ENFORCE

THE LAW.

U.S. CREDIBILITY, AS WELL AS

ISRAEL'S SECURITY, ARE AT

STAKE.

THEIR CALL NOW DRAWS THE

BATTLE LINE BETWEEN THE U.S.

CONGRESS AND THE

ADMINISTRATION.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA IS ASKING CONGRESS TO

APPROVE A $1 BILLION BOOST

TO U.S. MILITARY PRESENCE

ACROSS EUROPE, SAYING IT IS

A NECESSARY STEP TO CURB

RUSSIA'S INVOLVEMENT IN

UKRAINE.

THE PRESIDENT IS ON A

FOUR-DAY TRIP TO EUROPE.

ITHE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT

CALLS RUSSIA HYPOCRITICAL

BECAUSE IT IS DOING NOTHING

TO STOP PRO-RUSSIAN FORCES.

DEADLY VIOLENCE IN EASTERN

UKRAINE HAS BEEN ESCALATING

THE LAST FEW DAYS BETWEEN

UKRAINE TROOPS AND RUSSIAN

SEPARATISTS.

PAT?

Pat: I'M JUST

ASTOUNDED.

WHEN OBAMA TAKES A TRIP THAT

IS JUST SO EXPENSIVE -- A

COUPLE OF DAYS IN BRUSSELS

IS 10 MILLION EUROS.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT HE IS

GOING TO SPEND MONEY ON.

HE PROBABLY HAS A SHOPPING

TRIP FOR HIS WIFE OR

SOMETHING.

HE WANTS A BILLION MORE

DOLLARS TO BEEF UP AMERICAN

TROOPS IN EUROPE.

HOW ABOUT DOING SOMETHING

RIGHT NOW TO HELP THE

UKRAINIANS?

THAT'S WHERE IT'S NEEDED, A

LITTLE BIT OF SUPPLY OR A

LITTLE BIT OF TRAINING, OR A

LITTLE BIT OF WHATEVER WOULD

HAVE GONE A LONG WAY, AND

STILL WOULD, JUST TO

REDEPLOY AN AIR WING INTO

THAT AREA AND HAVE THEM

STATIONED THERE COULD MAKE A

HUGE DIFFERENCE.

BUT HE DISPT WANT T DOESN'T

WANT TO DO ANY OF THAT.

AND AS A RESULT, THE THING

SIMMERS, AND PUTIN HAS WON.

HE HAS GOT NOT ONLY THE

CRIMEA, HE HAS GOTTEN A

TREMENDOUS, QUOTE,"GAS

FIELD" IN THE SEA ADJOINING

THAT.

AND NOW HE HAS CLAIM ON A

HUGE AMOUNT OF HYDRO CARBONS

THAT FORMERLY BELONG TO THE

UKRAINE.

PAT, MORE THAN ANY PLACE

IN THE WORLD, CHRISTIANS

SUFFER THE WORST PERSECUTION

IN NORTH KOREA.

BUT IN THE HEART OF

PYONGYANG, THEY ARE BRINGING

EDUCATION TO THE COUNTRY'S

ELITE.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: GRADUATIONS

ARE HAPPENING THIS TIME OF

YEAR.

BUT LOOK CLOSELY, THIS IS NO

IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL.

THESE 44 STUDENTS, ALL

MALES, RECEIVED THEIR

DIPLOMAS FROM PYONGYANG

UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND

TECHNOLOGY IN NORTH KOREA.

NEVER BEFORE HAVE SCIENCE

AND TECHNOLOGY STUDENTS

GRADUATED FROM A

FOREIGN-FUNDED,

FOREIGN-STAMPED UNIVERSITY

IN THEIR COUNTRY.

IN 2011, UNIVERSITY FOUNDER

AND PRESIDENT JAMES SHINKIM

APPEARED AND "THE 700 CLUB,"

SHORTLY AFTER THE UNIVERSITY

OPENED.

WE ARE SAYING THEY ARE

THE TOPS.

AND THERE ARE OVER 300

STUDENTS WE ARE TEACHING.

AND ALL, YOU KNOW -- IT IS

PYONGYANG UNIVERSITY AND IT

IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN ANY

OTHER UNIVERSITY IN THE

WORLD.

Reporter: DIFFERENT

BECAUSE NORTH KOREANS LIVE

IN A CLOSED MILITARISTIC

AUTHORITARIAN SOCIETY.

RARELY ARE THEY GIVEN ACCESS

AND EXPOSURE TO FOREIGNERS

AND WESTERN IDEAS.

BUT HERE THEY LEARN COMPUTER

ENGINEERING, AGRICULTURAL

AND LIFE SCIENCES, AND

INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT.

AND STUDENTS ARE GIVEN

INTERNET ACCESS.

THEIR PROFESSORS ARE

FOREIGNERS, LIKE THIS

INSTRUCTOR WHO LIKENED HIS

HOMEWORK EXPERIENCE TO

TEACHERS' HEAVEN.

BECAUSE WE GIVE THEM

HOMEWORK, BUT WE TELL THEM

ONLY DO FIVE.

BUT THEY USUALLY DO 10.

AND THEN ON THE WEEKEND,

MAYBE SOMETIMES WE SAY YOU

HAVE TOO MUCH HOMEWORK IN

THE OTHER CLASS, SO NO

HOMEWORK, BUT THEY DO

HOMEWORK ANYWAY.

Reporter: WHILE THE

SCHOOL IS BACKED BY

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS IN

SOUTH KOREA AND THE UNITED

STATES, THE UNIVERSITY DOES

NOT PROMOTE CHRISTIANITY.

KIM SAYS HE IS NOT A

COMMUNIST OR A CAPITALIST.

HE IS A LOVEST, WHO IS

BUILDING BRIDGES OF PEACE ON

THE KOREAN PENINSULA.

HE SAYS BEFORE HE STARTED

THE UNIVERSITY, HE WAS

ARRESTED AND ACCUSED OF

BEING A C.I.A. SPY.

HIS NORTHERN KOREAN CAPTORS

FORCED HIM TO WRITE A WILL,

BUT HE RESPONDED WITH LOVE

BECAUSE HE WANTED TO BUILD

BRIDGES OF PEACE ON THE

KOREAN PENINSULA.

PEACE COMES WITH A

PRICE.

EVERYONE LIKES TO HAVE

PEACE, BUT WHO MUST PAY THE

PRICE?

WHO IS GOING TO PAY?

Reporter: AND MOST OF

THE CLASS OF 2014 GRADUATES

SAY THEY WILL EITHER

CONTINUE THEIR ADVANCED

STUDIES IN EUROPE OR

IMMEDIATELY BEGIN WORK.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

PAT, DO YOU THINK THIS

COULD BE THE KEY TO

EVENTUALLY OPENING UP THE

HERMIT KINGDOM?

Pat: IT COULD BE.

THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST

CLOSED UNIVERSITIES.

AND DR. KIM, HE IS AMAZING.

YOU LOOK AT GOD'S MIRACLE,

AND IT IS HAPPENING, AND HE

WAS HERE TO TELL US ABOUT

IT.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, FROM

THE LAND OF THE INDIANAPOLIS

500, ANOTHER RACE IS ON, THE

RACE TO SAVE TEENS WHO ARE

LIVING ON THE STREETS, AFTER

THIS.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

THE STATISTICS ARE

STAGGERING.

CLOSE TO TWO MILLION

AMERICAN TEENAGERS LIVE ON

THE STREETS.

AND THOSE UNDER 18 WAKE UP

ALMOST -- EXCUSE ME -- MAKE

UP ALMOST HALF OF THE

COUNTRY'S HOMELESS

POPULATION.

BUT AS DAVID BRODY REPORTS,

OUT OF THE TRUNK OF A CAR

COMES A STORY OF HOPE.

David: FROM THE

CROSSROADS OF AMERICA, ERIC

HOWARD FOUND HIMSELF AT A

CROSS ROAD WITH GOD.

GOD JUST CAPTURED MY

HEART IN HIS HOTEL ROOM.

I CAN TELL YOU WHAT I WAS

WEARING, THE LENGTH OF MY

HAIR, THE COLOR OF THE

CARPET.

FROM THAT POINT ON, MY LIFE

TOOK A VERY DIFFERENT

DIRECTION.

David: THAT MOMENT PUT

HOWARD ON A JOURNEY TO SERVE

A GROUP THAT MANY DON'T EVEN

KNOW EXIST.

WHEN YOU THINK OF

INDIANAPOLIS, YOU, OF

COURSE, THINK OF THE

INDIANAPOLIS MOTOR SPEEDWAY,

THE INDY 500, AND WHILE THEY

DO A LOT OF RACING HERE, THE

FOLKS AT OUTREACH

INCORPORATED ARE DOING A

DIFFERENT SOURCE OF RACE.

THEY'RE RACING AGAINST TIME

TO SAVE HOMELESS TEENAGERS.

FROM THAT POINT, BOTTLES

OF WATER, PEANUT BUTTER AND

JELLY SANDWICHES IN THE

TRUNK OF A CAR HAS BLOSSOMED

TO WHERE WE ARE NOW.

David: AND WHERE IS

THAT EXACTLY?

A FULL-BLOWN MINISTRY.

THE OUTREACH PROVIDES

BASICS, BASICS HOWARD DIDN'T

EVEN CONSIDER UNTIL A RUN-IN

WITH A FRUSTRATED TEENAGER

CHANGED HIS THINKING.

I HAD BEEN DOING MINISTRY

FOR THE HOMELESS FOR 14

YEARS.

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

AND HE SAID, I CAN GO OUT

AND GET A JOB.

AND MY FLESH SAYS, THEN WHY

DON'T YOU?

AND HE SAID, WHAT YOU DON'T

UNDERSTAND IS I CAN SMELL

MYSELF.

DO YOU REALLY WANT ME

SERVING UP YOUR SHAKE AND

FRIES?

AND IT JUST DAWNED ON ME.

SO IT IS A QUESTION OF

DIGNITY.

David: THROUGH THE

HELP OF DONATIONS, OUTREACH

ADDED LAUNDRY FACILITIES,

SHOWERS, OUTDOOR ADVENTURES,

GRADUATION ASSISTANCE --

YES, THE LITTLE THINGS THAT

TEENS LOOK FORWARD TO, LIKE

DRIVING LESSONS, ALL IN AN

ATTEMPT TO PROVIDE A SENSE

OF NORMALCY AND A PLACE TO

CALL HOME.

IF YOU WALK INTO THE

LIVING ROOM, LIKE YOU'RE IN

OUR HOUSE AND YOU'RE A

GUEST.

Reporter: AND OUTREACH

INCORPORATED A STREET

INITIATIVE TEAM THAT GOES

INTO PARTS OF THE CITY WHERE

OTHERS FEAR TO TREAD.

OFTEN AT NIGHTS, THEY SPEND

HOURS LOOKING UNDER BRIDGES

AND OVERPASSES TO HELP THOSE

IN NEED.

ONE SPECIFIC OFFER APPEALED

TO 24-YEAR-OLD TIFFANY PET

PETEFOR.

WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR

WAS LOVE.

THIS IS A SAFE PLACE YOU CAN

COME FOR LOVE.

THEY HAVE THE LOVE OF GOD,

WHICH IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

David: LIFE STARTED

OUT YOUNG FOR TIFFANY.

AS A YOUNG CHILD, I WENT

TO 12 DIFFERENT ELEMENTARY

SCHOOLS.

I WENT TO THREE DIFFERENT

MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND TWO

DIFFERENT HIGH SCHOOLS.

SO I NEVER REALLY HAD ANY

STABILITY.

David: AND THEN

CHANGES AT HOME FORCED HER

INTO A LIFE ON THE STREETS.

I COULD VERY WELL BE DEAD

IF I DIDN'T TURN MY LIFE

OVER TO CHRIST.

SITUATIONS LIKE I CAN

REMEMBER TIMES WHERE I'LL BE

WALKING THE STREETS AT 2:00,

3:00, 4:00 IN THE MORNINGS,

IN AREAS I PROBABLY

SHOULDN'T EVEN BE IN.

ANYTHING COULD HAVE

HAPPENED.

Reporter: AND SOMETHING

DID HAPPEN.

TIFFANY FOUND GOD'S LOVE ON

THE STEPS OF OUTREACH.

THE FIRST DAY I WENT

THERE, I WALKED TO THE CAR

THREE TIMES BEFORE I

ACTUALLY WENT INTO THE

BUILDING -- I DON'T KNOW IF

I SHOULD DO THIS.

David: SHE FOUND HER

SPIRITUAL NEEDS MET, AS WELL

AS HER PHYSICAL NEEDS.

I REALLY CAME THERE

BROKEN, FROM MY MIND FRAME,

AND HOW I LOOKED AT LIFE

EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY.

IT REALLY CHANGED ME INTO

THE WOMAN I AM TODAY.

David: NOW THAT WOMAN

IS A THRIVING 24-YEAR-OLD

COLLEGE STUDENT, WITH A

GREAT JOB AND A NEW HOME.

SHE IS HAPPY TO SHOW OFF HER

NEW LIFE AND GIVE CREDIT TO

GOD'S LOVE AND THE HELP OF

OUTREACH.

AND SHE ALSO REDISCOVERED A

LOST RELATIONSHIP.

MY BROTHER, AND SOMEONE

HE CALLS HIS OLDER BROTHER.

THEY WERE ONLINE LOOKING FOR

HIM.

AND AT THE SAME TIME THEY

WERE LOOKING FOR HIM, OUR

DAD WAS LOOKING FOR US.

ME AND MY DAD'S RELATIONSHIP

IS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD.

David: PROVING WHEN

GOD WRITES THE STORY,

MIRACLES CAN EVEN COME FROM

THE TRUNK OF A CAR.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, FROM

INDIANAPOLIS.

Pat: THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

YOU KNOW, COULD YOU BE THE

ONE?

IT JUST TAKES ONE, JUST ONE

PERSON CAN CHANGE THE

WORLD.

JUST ONE PERSON.

AND IT IS HAPPENING IN

INDIANAPOLIS.

WELL, WE'VE GOT A GOOD

FRIEND COMING UP.

TERRY?

Terry: WE SURE DO.

KEVIN LEMAN IS IN THE HOUSE,

THE POPULAR ORDER OF THE

BIRTH ORDER BOOK, AND THE

FATHER OF FOUR GIRLS.

HE IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT

DADS AND DAUGHTERS.

THERE YOU GO.

HE'LL BE ON RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: AT COLLEGES,

KEVIN LEMAN IS BEST KNOWN

FOR HIS BIRTH ORDER BOOK.

AND NOW HE HAS WRITTEN A NEW

BOOK ABOUT THE RECALLS

BETWEEN DADS AND THEIR

DAUGHTERS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: THE PERSON

THAT MATTERS THE MOST IN A

GIRL'S LIFE ISN'T HER

MOTHER.

IT'S HER DAD, AT LEAST

ACCORDING TO DR. KEVIN

LEMAN.

HE IS AN

INTERNATIONALLY-KNOWN

PSYCHOLOGIST AND THE FATHER

OF FIVE, FOUR OF THEM ARE

GIRLS.

HE BELIEVES A GIRL'S LIFE

DECISIONS ARE DIRECTLY TIED

TO THE RELATIONSHIP SHE HAS

WITH HER FATHER.

IN HIS BOOK, "BE THE DAD SHE

NEEDS YOU TO BE," KEVIN

HELPS EVERY FATHER LEAVE A

LASTING IMPRINT ON HIS

DAUGHTER'S HEART, NOW AND

FOR A LIFETIME.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

DR. KEVIN LEMAN.

WELCOME.

NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE

AGAIN.

OH, THANK YOU.

Terry: WE MENTIONED

YOU'VE GOT FOUR DAUGHTERS IN

YOUR OWN FAMILY, AND THAT'S

A FULL-TIME JOB, ISN'T IT?

JUST TRYING TO FIND YOUR

TOOTHBRUSH IN THE MORNING.

YOU'VE GOT HAIR SCRUNCHERS,

AND EYELID THINGS, THINGS

THAT BURN YOU, JUST TRYING

TO GET YOUR TOOTHBRUSH.

Terry: TALK A LITTLE

BIT ABOUT WHY DADS ARE SO

SIGNIFICANT IN THE LIVES OF

THEIR DAUGHTERS.

EVERY BIT OF RESEARCH

SAYS THIS: IF A DAD IS

ENGAGED IN HIS DAUGHTER'S

LIFE, HE SETS HER OFF ON A

POSITIVE TRAJECTORY IN

LIFE.

TAKE THE DAD OUT OF THE

HOME, ALL KINDS OF BAD

THINGS HAPPEN.

Terry: SO TALK ABOUT

THAT A LITTLE BIT.

BECAUSE THERE ARE PLENTY OF

HOMES TODAY -- WE HEAR ABOUT

IT ALL OF THE TIME -- WHERE

THE DAD ISN'T IN THE HOME.

HOW DO YOU REMEDY THAT?

IF YOU'RE A SINGLE MOM,

DON'T BE DAD.

BE AS CONSISTENT AS YOU

CAN.

DON'T LET GUILT BECAUSE

GUILT IS THE PROPELLANT OF

MOST OF THE LOUSY DECISIONS

YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE AS A

PARENT.

MAYBE THERE IS A GRANDFATHER

OR AN UNCLE THAT SERVES AS A

POSITIVE MALE.

IT'S LIKE MAKING A CAKE.

IF YOU LEAVE OUT SUGAR IN

THE CAKE, IT'S NOT GOING TO

BE A GOOD CAKE.

AND SO GIRLS WITHOUT DADS

ARE DRAWN TOWARDS PEOPLE

THAT AREN'T GOOD FOR THEM.

Terry: YOU SEE IT ALL

OF THE TIME.

YOU TALK ABOUT THE ROLE OF

THE FATHER, AND THE DAD

BEING THE AUTHORITARIAN

FIGURE IN MOST FAMILIES, AND

THE MOM THE MORE EMOTIONAL,

FEEDING FIGURE.

TALK ABOUT THE THREE

PRINCIPLES THAT YOU SHARE

THAT ARE SO GOOD FOR DADS TO

UTILIZE.

YOU'RE GOING TO DO WHAT I

TELL YOU TO DO, YOU

UNDERSTAND ME?

DON'T MAKE ME COME OVER

THERE.

YOU WANT SOMETHING TO CRY

ABOUT, I'LL GIVE YOU

SOMETHING TO CRY ABOUT.

THERE IS YOUR

AUTHORITARIAN.

THE SUBMISSIVE, BRITTANY, IT

IS 8:00, HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO

GO TO BED?

THE ONLY ONE THAT IS

REFLECTIVE OF GOD'S TEACHING

IS THE AUTHORITATIVE

PARENT.

IT SAYS, GOD DIDN'T PUT YOU

ON THIS EARTH TO BE RUN OVER

BY YOUR DAUGHTER.

SO WHEN SHE ROLLS HER EYES,

AND SHE WILL, WHAT DO MOST

PARENTS SAY -- HEY, DON'T

YOU BE ROLLING YOUR EYES IN

THIS HOUSE.

DAD, LIGHTEN UP.

SAY, HONEY, OOH, THAT'S

GOOD.

DO IT IN SLOW MOTION,

PLEASE.

IF YOU'RE TALKING TO YOUR

DAUGHTER, TALK WITH HER.

IF YOU'RE DRIVING HER TO

SCHOOL THIS MORNING.

DON'T ASK HER QUESTIONS.

DON'T ASK HER QUESTIONS.

YOU SAY, IF I DO THAT, SHE

WON'T SAY A WORD.

SOONER OR LATER SHE WILL.

SAY, DOES THIS MATCH THIS?

CAN I WEAR THIS?

DAD, YOU'VE GOT DO BE

KIDDING ME.

IF YOU DON'T GO THERE, SHE

IS GOING TO BE A SLAM AND

CLICKER.

WHICH MEANS SHE GOES TO HER

ROOM, SLAM THE DOOR, AND

TEXTS HER FRIENDS.

SHE'LL SHUT YOU OUT OF HER

LIFE.

SHE DOESN'T KNOW YOU CARE

UNTIL YOU SHOW YOU CARE.

YOU WOMEN LIKE WORDS AND

SENTENCES, PA PARAGRAPHS,

AND SHARE THAT WITH YOUR

DAUGHTER.

Terry: YOU TALK ABOUT

LOOKING AT OUR CHILDREN, AND

FROM A DAD'S PERSPECTIVE,

BECAUSE HIS OPINION MEANS SO

MUCH TO A DAUGHTER, WITH A

CRITICAL EYE.

WE DON'T MEAN TO BE CRITICAL

WHEN WE DO THAT -- WE'RE

TRYING TO HELP, BUT THEY

DON'T RECEIVE IT THAT WAY.

THE CRITICAL EYE, WILL

TURN THE FIRST-BORN DAUGHTER

INTO A PROCRASTINATOR, ONE

WHO WILL NEVER FULFILL HER

AMBITIONS IN LIFE.

WHAT MAKES YOU A GOOD

ARCHITECTURE IS THE SAME

THINGS THAT WORKS WITH YOUR

WIFE.

HEY, HONEY, WHAT'S WITH THE

CARROTS.

YOU MIGHT BE WEARING CARROTS

SHORTLY.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY.

YOU NEED TO BE AFFIRMING.

Terry: BOY, SOMETIMES

THAT'S REALLY A DIFFICULT

SCENARIO.

I WANT YOU TO SHARE, BECAUSE

EVEN WHEN DAUGHTERS GET TO

BE GROWNUPS, DADS CAN STILL

IMPACT THEM.

YOU HAVE THE STORY OF A

FAMILY MEMBER WHO WAS

HOSPITALIZED AND HIS

DAUGHTER -- YOU TELL IT.

THIS COUSIN WAS 20 YEARS

OLDER THAN ME AND WE WERE

VERY CLOSE.

MY HUSBAND, CAROL, WHO LIVES

IN NORTH CAROLINA, SENT ME

THIS E-MAIL.

AND I PUT IT IN THE END OF

THE BOOK.

SHE SAYS, "KEVIN IT WAS

GREAT TO TALK TO YOU.

IT REALLY WARMS MY HEART TO

HEAR ABOUT ALL OF YOUR

KIDS.

DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS

OR NOT, BUT MY DAD WAS IN A

HOME FOR THE LAST FEW

YEARS.

BOB AND THE BOYS AND I WOULD

GO AND VISIT HIM EVERY

WEEK.

HIS TINY ROOM WAS FILLED

WITH PICTURES.

THE BOYS WOULD DRAW OF

THEIR PAPA.

MY DAD HAD NO IDEA WHO WE

WERE AT THAT STAGE IN HIS

LIFE.

ANYWAY, EVERY TIME WE WOULD

GO TO LEAVE, HE WOULD CRY

AND ASK US TO TAKE HIM WITH

US.

HE EVEN SAID HE DIDN'T KNOW

US, BUT WE SEEMED LIKE

REALLY NICE PEOPLE.

IT WOULD BREAK MY HEART TO

LEAVE HIM.

THE DAY AFTER EASTER I WANT

TO SEE HIM WITHOUT BOB AND

THE BOYS.

I TOOK HIM A BIG CHOCOLATE

BUNNY AND CHOCOLATE SHAKE,

TWO OF HIS FAVORITES.

AS I WALKED IN THE ROOM,

THERE HE SAT IN SOME OTHER

PERSON'S CLOTHING, THAT WAS

TYPICAL, WITH HIS VELCRO

SNEAKERS ON THE WRONG FEET.

I SAT BESIDE HIM AND GAVE

HIM HIS TREATS.

HE LIT UP LIKE A 4-YEAR-OLD

SITTING ON SANTA'S LAP.

I TOLD HIM WHAT THE BOYS

WERE UP TO, EVEN THOUGH HE

HAD NO CLUE WHO THE BOYS

WHAT.

WHEN HE FINISHED THE TREATS,

THERE WAS CHOCOLATE ALL OVER

HIS FACE.

HE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID,

ALL OF A SUDDEN, YOU CAN GO

NOW, I'M FINE.

I LAUGHED AND SAID, I'M NOT

GOING ANYWHERE.

HE SAID IT AGAIN, BUT THIS

TIME IT WAS LIKE HE ALMOST

KNEW WHAT HE WAS SAYING.

THIS TOOK ME BY SURPRISE

BECAUSE HE ALWAYS CRIED WHEN

I LEFT HIM.

I TOLD HIM, OKAY, GAVE HIM A

HUG AND KISS, AND TOLD HIM I

LOVED HIM.

AS I WALKED OUT THE DOOR TO

LEAVE, MY DAD SAID, I NEVER

THOUGHT I WOULD BE TREATED

THIS GOOD TODAY.

I SMILED AND TOLD HIM I'D

SEE HIM IN A FEW DAYS.

10 MINUTES AFTER I LEFT, HE

HAD A HEART ATTACK.

I WAS POSITIVE HE KNEW HE

WAS GOING TO DIE AND DIDN'T

WANT ME TO BE THERE.

MY DADDY EVEN PROTECTED ME

TO THE END.

I LOVE THAT MAN."

SO DADS WANT TO PROTECT.

THAT'S WHO WE ARE.

Terry: THEY HAVE THE

POWER TO PROTECT, IN THEIR

WORDS AND IN THEIR ACTIONS.

SO WHEN YOU ENTER THAT

DAUGHTER'S LIFE, GENTLEMAN,

YOU MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE.

BY JUST AFFIRMING HER

FEMININENITY.

FEMININENITY.

WHEN SHE IS GROWING UP, OUR

TENDENCY IS TO SAY, TERRY,

MAYBE YOU OUGHT TO HAVE A

TALK WITH OUR DAUGHTER.

SHE IS STARTING TO FILL OUT

ON TOP.

IF ANYBODY SHOULD TALK ABOUT

LIFE AND SEX FOR DAUGHTER,

IS THE DAD.

AND MOTHERS TO SONS.

Terry: THIS IS JUST THE

TIP OF THE EISENBERG,

ICEBERG, BUT IT IS SO

IMPORTANT.

FATHER'S DAY IS COMING UP IN

A COUPLE OF WEEKS, AND

KEVIN'S BOOK WOULD BE A

GREAT GIFT FOR DAD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IT IS ALWAYS A TREAT TO HAVE

YOU HERE.

AND MUCH BETTER THAN SOAP

ON A ROPE AND A WEED

WHACKER.

Terry: WE'VE GOT

SEVERAL OF THOSE.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, BUT FIRST A WIFE

TAKES DRASTIC ACTION TO HELP

HER HUSBAND WITH HIS BACK

PAIN.

SHE TOOK THE CHANNEL

CHANGER AWAY FROM ME.

YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THAT

MEANS WHEN THE MAN DOESN'T

HAVE A CHANNEL CHANGER.

AND SHE PUT THE TAPE IN.

Terry: YOU'LL SEE HOW

THAT TAPE LED TO THIS MAN'S

INSTANT HEALING.

THAT'S COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THE HUSBAND OF THE CHRISTIAN

WOMAN SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR

APOSTASY IN SUDAN IS AN

AMERICAN CITIZEN.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS

CONFIRMING FOR THE FIRST

TIME THAT DANIEL WANI IS AN

AMERICAN.

BUT OFFICIALS CAN'T CONFIRM

THE CHILDREN ARE AMERICANS

WITHOUT GENETIC TESTING.

MERIAM IBRAHIM CAME BIRTH TO

HER SECOND CHILD IN THE

PRISON WHERE SHE IS BEING

HELD.

HER FIRST CHILD IS ALSO IN

PRISON WITH HER.

MEANWHILE SUDAN'S FOREIGN

MINISTRY IS DENYING RUMORS

THAT MERIAM IS GOING TO BE

RELEASED.

JUDGING IS HURRICANE BY ITS

GENDER COULD PUT YOU AT

RISK.

A STUDY BY THE NATIONAL

ACADEMY OF SCIENCES FINDS

PEOPLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO

FLEE A HURRICANE THAN A

MASCULINE NAME THAN ONE WITH

A FEMININE NAME.

A HURRICANE NAMED VICTOR

GETS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY

THAN A STORM NAMED

VICTORIA.

BUT THAT DIDN'T MEAN

FEMININE-NAMED HURRICANES

ARE ANY LESS DANGEROUS.

IN FACT, THE TWO DEADLIEST

STORMS SINCE 1979 HAVE BEEN

NAMED KATRINA AND SANDY.

BUT PEOPLE SAID THEY WERE

MORE AFRAID OF MALE NAMED

STORMS THAN FEMALE ONES.

THAT'S FUNNY TO ME.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

THE TIME IS COMING FOR YOU

TO HAVE AN ANSWER TO

PRAYER.

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR YOU.

FIRST I WANT TO INTRODUCE TO

SOYAN YANKIF.

HE IS A FISHERMAN WHO'S WIFE

WASN'T DESCRIBED HIM AS,

QUOTE,"BIG, TOUGH AND

ORNERY."

BUT WHEN HE DEVELOPED

EXCRUCIATING BACK PAIN, HE

WAS FORCED TO SPEND DAYS

CONFINED TO HIS RECLINER.

THAT'S WHEN HIS WIFE GOT A

BRILLIANT IDEA.

SHE TOOK THE REMOTE CONTROL

AWAY FROM HIM AND PLAYED A

TAPE ON HIS TV SET.

Reporter: STULION IS A

MAN OF THE SEA, A PROUD

FISHERMAN FOR OVER 40

YEARS.

HIS STORY BEGINS IN HIS HOME

LAND OF COMMUNIST BULGARIA.

WHEN I WAS A KID, MY DAD

STARTED TAKING ME FISHING.

HE TOOK ME FISHING ONE

SUNDAY, AND THAT'S WHEN IT

ALL STARTED.

WE CAUGHT MORE FISH THAN

ANYONE ELSE AROUND US, AND I

WAS ON FIRE FOR FISHING.

LATER ON, I GREW UP AND I

FINISHED THE EIGHTH GRADE,

AND I WAS GETTING READY TO

GO TO A MIDDLE SCHOOL TO

LEARN A TRADE.

I NOTICED THAT THE ONLY

PEOPLE WHO CAN LEAVE THE

COUNTRY ARE THE FISHERMEN.

THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT

CAN LEAVE THE COUNTRY.

SO THAT'S -- I WANTED TO GO

TO A FISHING SCHOOL.

AND THAT'S WHAT I DID IN

1972.

Reporter: STULION WENT

TO A MILITARY-SPONSORED

FISHING SCHOOL.

HE LEARNED HIS CRAFT WELL,

BUT HE WAS ALSO TAUGHT

SOMETHING ELSE.

YOU'RE IN AN ENVIRONMENT

WHERE YOU'RE CONSTANTLY

BRAINWASHED TO BELIEVE IN

THAT SYSTEM OF COMMUNIST AND

SOCIALISM.

AND YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND

THERE IS NO PERSONAL

FREEDOMS IN COMMUNISM AND

SOCIALISM.

EVERYTHING IS CONTROLLED BY

THE GOVERNMENT, AND YOU DID

WHATEVER THE GOVERNMENT TOLD

YOU TO.

Reporter: HE COMPLETED

THE FOUR-YEAR PROGRAM, AND

HIS FIRST ASSIGNMENT WAS ON

BOARD THE FIRST VESSEL TO

TROLL THE UNITED STATES.

BUT STULION HAD OTHER

PLANS.

EVERYONE'S DREAM AT THAT

TIME WAS TO DEFECT AND LIVE

IN THE UNITED STATES, IN A

COUNTRY SO POWERFUL AND SO

ADVANCED.

WE ALL KNEW HOW ADVANCED THE

UNITED STATES WAS.

BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH.

Reporter: WHILE THEIR

BOAT WAS DOCKED IN PORTLAND,

STULION AND TWO OTHER

CREWMEN LEFT THE BOAT.

A GUARD MAN STOPPED THEM ON

THE GANG PLANK.

HIS JOB WAS TO MAKE SURE

NO ONE CAME IN ON THE VESSEL

OR LEFT.

BUT ONCE EVERY HOUR HE HAS

TO GO AROUND THE SHIP AND

CHECK EVERYTHING.

SO HE SAID, WHERE YOU GUYS

GOING?

WE SAID, WE'RE DEFECTING.

AND HE SAID, NO, YOU'RE

NOT.

AND I SAID, WHY NOT?

WELL, BASICALLY THE

GENTLEMAN DIDN'T WANT TO BE

A WITNESS.

HE SAID, WELL, EVERY HOUR I

HAVE TO GO AROUND THE SHIP,

SO WHEN I DISAPPEAR OUT OF

VIEW, JUST, YOU KNOW, GO

AHEAD AND LEAVE.

Reporter: IT WAS THAT

SIMPLE.

STULION WAS FREE.

HE GOT A JOB RIGHT AWAY AS A

CREWMAN ON A LOCAL TROL

TROLLER.

HE WORKED HIS WAY UP TO PART

OWNER OF A TROLLER.

HE SOON MET ANGELIQUE, AND

THEY MARRIED.

SHE WAS A CHRISTIAN, BUT

STULION WASN'T.

HE WAS THIS BIG, TOUGH,

ORNERY FISHERMAN.

GET OUT OF MY WAY.

I'M COMING THROUGH.

I DON'T CARE.

MY WIFE HAD TRIED TO TALK

TO ME ABOUT GOD AND JESUS,

BUT I HAD REJECTED IT

BECAUSE OF MY BACKGROUND AND

STRIVING TO THE BE BEST AT

WHAT I WAS DOING.

HE WOULD GET REALLY ANGRY

WHEN I TRIED TO TALK ABOUT

GOD.

SO AFTER A WHILE, I JUST

STOPPED.

Reporter: DECADES OF

HARD WORK TOOK THEIR TOLL ON

STULION.

AND HE DEVELOPED

EXCRUCIATING PAIN IN HIS

BACK AND NECK.

HE WAS IN A LOT OF PAIN.

IT HAD INCREASED TO THE

POINT WHERE HE WAS

IMMOBILE.

STULION HAD BEEN IN THIS

RECLINER, SLEEPING, LAYING,

SITTING FOR AT LEAST A WEEK

AND A HALF.

Reporter: AS THE PAIN

GOT WORSE, HE WATCHED MORE

TELEVISION.

ONE DAY ANGELIQUE HAD AN

IDEA.

SHE TOOK THE CHANNEL

CHANGER AWAY FROM ME.

YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THAT

MEANS, WHEN THE MAN DOESN'T

HAVE THE CHANNEL CHANGER.

AND SHE PUT THE TAPE IN.

MY MOTHER SENT US THIS

VIDEO, AND IT WAS INCREDIBLE

STORIES OF MIRACLES AND

PEOPLE BEING SAVED.

AT THE END OF THE TAPE,

WHEN PAT ROBERTSON STARTED

TALKING ABOUT THIS MAN

SITTING IN THE CHAIR WITH

UNBELIEVABLE PAIN, IT WAS

BASICALLY DESCRIBING ME,

EXACTLY DOWN TO THE LAST

DETAIL.

IT WAS ME.

AND THAT'S WHAT GOT MY

ATTENTION.

AND THEN AT THE END, WHEN HE

SAID, IN THE NAME OF JESUS

YOU'RE HEALED, GET UP AND

WALK, IT REALLY GOT MY

ATTENTION.

AND SO I LOOKED AT HIM,

AND I SAID, WHAT ARE YOU

WAITING FOR, YOU KNOW, STAND

UP.

AND HE STOOD UP.

WHEN I GOT UP OFF THE

CHAIR AND I STARTED WALKING

AROUND, AND I WAS SHAKING MY

LEGS, AND THERE WAS NO PAIN,

ZERO PAIN, I KNEW RIGHT THEN

THERE WAS A GOD.

AND I STARTED BELIEVING IN

GOD RIGHT THEN AND RIGHT

THERE.

WHEN YOU FEEL THE POWER

OF GOD COMING OVER YOU, IT'S

LIKE NO OTHER FEELING.

YOU KNOW GOD IS THERE.

EVER SINCE THAT DAY, MY

BACK HAS BEEN PAIN-FREE.

THERE IS NO PAIN.

Reporter: STULION

BECAME A CHRISTIAN THAT

DAY.

HE AND ANGELIQUE JOINED A

CHURCH AND WERE BAPTIZED

TOGETHER.

THAT WAS A KEY TURNING

POINT IN OUR LIVES, THAT

HEALING, BECAUSE WE BOTH

EXPERIENCED THAT AT THE

EXACT SAME MOMENT.

GOD BEGAN TO WORK AND MOVE

IN OUR LIVES FROM THAT

POINT.

AND HE KEPT ON LIKE THIS.

Reporter: STULION'S

JOURNEY AS A FISHERMAN

STARTED OVER 40 YEARS AGO,

AND HE IS STILL GOING STRONG

TODAY.

HE HAS HIS OWN BOAT AND CREW

AND CONTINUES TO FISH IN

ALASKA, WHEN HE IS NOT

WORKING FROM HIS HOME

OFFICE.

IF SOMEONE THAT WAS BORN

AND RAISED IN A COMMUNIST

COUNTRY, AND BEING

BRAINWASHED, WHICH HAS NO

LEGS TO STAND ON -- IF

SOMEONE LIKE THAT CAN COME

TO THIS COUNTRY AND BE

SAVED, AND BECOME A BELIEVER

IN GOD AND A FOLLOWER OF

JESUS, THEN THERE IS HOPE

FOR EVERYONE ELSE.

BECAUSE I HAD REJECTED GOD

ALL OF MY LIFE, UNTIL GOD

GOT AHOLD OF ME AND TOLD ME

HE CAN DO ALL KINDS OF

THINGS FOR ME.

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS ASK

HIM.

AND THAT'S ALL IT TAKES, FOR

YOU TO ASK GOD, AND HE WILL

COME INTO YOUR HEART, AND IT

WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE, AND

YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

Pat: HE'LL CHANGE YOUR

LIFE AND YOU WILL NEVER BE

THE SAME.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I WAS

JUST TALKING TO TERRY AS WE

WERE WATCHING THIS.

THAT MAN WAS WATCHING A

TAPE.

A TAPE OF A PROGRAM THAT

TOOK PLACE PREVIOUSLY.

I DON'T KNOW WHEN.

BUT IT DESCRIBED PRECISELY

WHAT HE HAD.

AND GOD KNEW IN ADVANCE, HAD

IT ALL PLANNED.

THINK OF THE WISDOM OF GOD,

AND THINK OF THE POWER OF

GOD.

A GOD LIKE THAT, IT'S

NOTHING TO HEAL SOMEBODY'S

SCIATICA.

IT'S NOTHING.

BUT, IN SENSE, FOR THIS MAN

IT WAS EVERYTHING.

ALL RIGHT.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

HERE IS SOMEBODY --

ANTOINETTE, WHO LIVED IN

MONTANA, HAD A SORE THROAT.

THE PAIN WAS SO INTENSE SHE

COULD NOT DRINK JUICE.

SHE SAW SEVERAL DOCTORS WHO

PRESCRIBED ASPIRIN.

AND ONE DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HER

WITH AN INFECTION IN HER

SINUSES.

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM LAST APRIL, AND SHE

HEARD TERRY GIVE THE WORD,

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH A

CHRONIC SORE THROAT, SWOLLEN

GLANDS, WON'T GO AWAY, AND

GOD IS HEALING YOUR IMMUNE

SYSTEM.

AND ANTOINETTE WAS HEALED.

WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU GOT?

Terry: THIS IS GREY WHO

LIVES IN SOUTH DAKOTA.

SHE STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS

WITH HER LEFT FOOT.

IT WAS SWOLLEN AND PAINFUL.

X-RAYS SHOWED SHE HAD A

DEFORMITY IN A PART OF HER

FOOT.

SHE WRAPPED HER FOOT WITH

BANDAGES, EVEN USED ANKLE

BRACES, AND IT STILL HURT

JUST TO WALK.

HER DOCTOR RECOMMENDED

CORTISONE SHOTS.

AND THEN LAST APRIL SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM, AND

PAT, SHE HEARD YOU GIVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, "THERE IS A BONE

OUT OF PLACE.

THOSE BONES ARE GOING TO

MOVE INTO PLACE AND YOU'LL

BE COMPLETELY PAIN FREE."

WHEN GRACE ATTEMPTED TO MOVE

HER FOOT, IT POPPED AND SHE

FELT NO MORE PAIN.

IT WAS COMPLETELY HEALED.

GOD KNOWS YOU.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER RIGHT

NOW, AND WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, IN JESUS PRECIOUS

NAME WE COME BEFORE YOU,

THANKING YOU FOR ALL YOU'RE

DOING.

A CRACKED TIBIA IS BEING

HEALED RIGHT NOW AS WE

SPEAK.

TERRY, YOU'VE GOT

SOMETHING.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE, LIKE,

POCKETS OF INFECTION IN THE

BACK OF YOUR THROAT.

YOU'LL KNOW THIS IS YOU

BECAUSE IT DRAINS ACTUALLY.

YOU GET THAT FUNNY TASTE

THAT INFECTION HAS IN YOUR

THROAT.

GOD IS TOTALLY HEALING THAT

FOR YOU.

IT WILL BE GONE.

Pat: A NECK PAIN,

AGAIN, IT IS A DISLOCATION

IN YOUR VERTEBRA.

IF YOU'LL PUT YOUR HAND ON

THE BACK OF YOUR NECK, THE

LORD IS GOING TO PUT IT IN

PLACE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU'RE

HEALED.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE REALLY STRONG HEART

PALPITATIONS, AND IT

FRIGHTENS YOU.

IT FEELS LIKE YOUR HEART IS

GOING TO POUND OUT OF YOUR

CHEST.

GOD IS REGULATING THE RHYTHM

OF YOUR HEARTBEAT AND IT IS

GOING TO BE FINE.

Pat: TOUCH LIVES, OH,

LORD, HEAL THE SICK, AND DO

A MIRACLE.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

LET US HEAR FROM YOU.

WE LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.

IF YOU NEED HELP,

1-800-759-0700.

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

MARY ANN SAYS, "I HAVE TO

TEACH FIRST THROUGH THIRD

GRADERS THE CONCEPT OF

HOLINESS IN SUNDAY SCHOOL.

IT GOT ME THINKING, WHAT IS

HOLINESS REALLY?"

WE'LL ANSWER MARY ANN'S

QUESTION AND MORE.

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT ON"

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: WELL, WE LOVE TO

GET YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS,

BUT WE ALSO LOVE TO JUST

HEAR FROM YOU.

I HAVE A COUPLE OF VIEWER

COMMENTS, PAT, I THOUGHT I

WOULD SHARE WITH YOU.

THIS IS STEVE WHO WROTE AND

SAID, "INSID, "I'M 59 YEARS

OLD, AND I'M AN OLD HIPPIE

DUDE WHO GOT SAVED IN AN OLD

PENTECOSTAL CHURCH.

I NEVER MISS "THE 700

CLUB."

I NEVER MISS YOU.

I THINK YOU'RE THE COOLEST

DUDE IN THE WORLD."

Pat: BEST COMPLIMENT

I'VE HAD IN YEARS.

Terry: BETH SAYS, "A

FEW MONTHS AGO I WAS IN A

REALLY BAD PLACE.

I WAS PLANNING MY SUICIDE.

AT THE SAME TIME, I WAS

PRAYING TO GOD TO CHANGE MY

CIRCUMSTANCES IN LIFE.

NOTHING IN MY CIRCUMSTANCES

HAS CHANGED, BUT I COULDN'T

GO WITH MY SUICIDE PLANS.

I STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND I STARTED TO HAVE

A GLIMMER OF HOPE.

IT HAS BEEN ABOUT FIVE

MONTHS, AND MY MOOD HAS

BEGUN AT 180-DEGREE CHANGE.

AND I'M NO LONGER ON

ANTIDEPRESSANTS.

AND I NOW HAVE AN INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THAT I

NEVER COULD HAVE HAD

BEFORE."

ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL TO

HEAR?

Pat: WE'RE HERE AND

LOVING GOD AND HAVING A GOOD

TIME.

Terry: THIS IS MARY ANN

WHO WROTE AND SAID, "I HAVE

TO TEACH FIRST THROUGH THIRD

GRADERS THE CONCEPT OF

HOLINESS IN SUNDAY SCHOOL.

I KNOW IT ISN'T THE WAY YOU

WEAR YOUR HAIR OR YOUR

CLOTHING.

BUT IT GOT ME THINKING, WHAT

IS HOLINESS REALLY?

YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT IT

MEANS UNTIL YOU HAVE TO

EXPLAIN IT TO SOMEONE ELSE,

ESPECIALLY CHILDREN."

Pat: YOU CAN ASK THOSE

CHILDREN, WHAT DO YOU THINK

GOD IS LIKE.

AND JESUS SAID, BE HOLY AS

YOUR HEAVEN FATHER IS HOLY.

I THINK THE IDEA IS BEING

LIKE GOD.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,

SOMEBODY WAS GIVEN OVER TO

GOD, AND THE IDEA WAS THEY

WERE CONSUMED IN A FIRE.

BUT THEIR BEING HAS CHANGED

TO BECOME LIKE GOD.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

THAT'S WHAT HOLINESS

ULTIMATELY IS, TO BE LIKE

GOD.

YOU MIGHT ASK THOSE LITTLE

KIDS, WHAT DO YOU THINK GOD

IS LIKE?

IS HE GOOD?

IS HE KIND?

HE IS LOVING?

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO

BE.

Terry: I WAS JUST

READING ABOUT THIS IN MY

DEVOTIONS YESTERDAY, THAT WE

GET THAT BY BEING WITH HIM.

WHICH A CHILD COULD REALLY

UNDERSTAND, DON'T YOU

THINK?

Pat: SURE.

Terry: THIS IS TINA,

WHO IS SAID, "DEAR PAT, I

RECENTLY DEDICATED MY LIFE

TO CHRIST.

I HAD BEEN BACK SLIDING SIX

YEARS PRIOR TO THIS.

I FEEL I'M STILL IN

CONFUSION ABOUT EVERYTHING.

I PRAYED FOR DIRECTION AND

GUIDANCE.

WHEN I PRAY, I FEEL THAT MY

PRAYERS GO NO HIGHER THAN

THE CEILING.

I TRY TO FOCUS ON ALL OF THE

THINGS GOD BLESSED ME WITH,

BUT THEN I THINK ABOUT MY

AWFUL MISTAKES I'VE MADE IN

THE PAST.

I HATE MYSELF.

WHEN I GO TO MY BIBLE FOR

STUDY, I JUST CAN'T APPLY

THE TEACHINGS EN MY LIFE.

I WANT TO BE A STRONG

CHRISTIAN FOR JESUS, BUT

THERE SEEMS TO BE SOMETHING

STANDING IN MY LIFE.

ANY ADVICE?"

Pat: YES.

YOUR SINS HAVE SEPARATED YOU

FROM GOD.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS GET

OFF BY YOURSELF, WITH THE

BIBLE AND A PIECE OF PAPER

AND A PENCIL OR A PEN, AND I

WANT YOU TO PRAY.

AND THE LORD WILL SHOW

SOMETHING TO YOU.

I CURSED GOD; WRITE IT

DOWN.

I COMMITTED ADULTERY OR

FORNICATION; WRITE IT DOWN.

I WAS TAKING DRUGS; WRITE IT

DOWN.

WHEN YOU GET THROUGH

EVERYTHING THAT COMES TO

YOUR MIND, YOU SAY, GOD, I

DID EVERY ONE OF THOSE

THINGS.

I ASK FOR YOUR FORGIVENESS,

AND I RECEIVE YOUR

FORGIVENESS.

AND TAKE THAT PIECE OF

PAPER, TAKE A MATCH, AND PUT

IT ON FIRE, AND BURN IT UP.

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON

RECEIVE THE FORGIVENESS THAT

GOD HAS GIVEN YOU AND BEGIN

TO THANK HIM AND PRAISE

HIM.

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON,

WALK FREE.

BECAUSE HE DOES NOT WANT YOU

BEING BEAT UP.

HE WANTS YOU TO HAVE A CLEAR

CONSCIENCE THAT YOU MIGHT

SERVE THE LIVING GOD.

HE WANTS FOR SERVICE.

Terry: DANA SAYS, "I

WAS WATCHING NASCAR ON

SUNDAY AND THEY WERE

MENTIONING TONY STEWART, AND

HOW HE HAD SURGERY ON HIS

LEG AND IS NOT QUITE 100%,

BUT YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW

IT.

HAVE YOU EVER GOTTEN BUCKED

OFF A HORSE?"

Pat: I HAD A CRAZY

THOROUGHBRED, AND I WAS

COMING OUT OF A DITCH, AND I

WANTED TO GO RIGHT AND HE

WANTED TO GO LEFT.

AND I WENT OFF ON TO THE

PAVEMENT, WHICH WAS A LITTLE

PAINFUL.

AND THE ANSWER IS, YES, I

GOT UP AND GOT BACK ON HIM.

THAT'S THE WAY YOU REALLY

HAVE TO DO IT.

THAT WAS ONE TIME, AND I'M

SURE THERE HAVE BEEN

OTHERS.

BUT YOU JUST HAVE TO DO IT,

GET BACK ON.

ESPECIALLY AS A KID.

THEY FALL OFF OR SOMETHING.

BY THE WAY, ON THURSDAY

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

TRESAGE EXHIBITIONIST ON

TAPE.

Terry: AND YOU WENT OUT

YESTERDAY, AND YOU HAVE A

BIG HORSE.

Pat: BIG.

BIGGER THAN THAT

THOROUGHBRED.

HE IS A GREAT BIG THING,

WONDERFUL HORSE.

I TALKED TO SOMEBODY WHO

KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT RIDING,

AND INVARIABLY THEY SAY,

AREN'T YOU AFRAID YOU'LL

FALL OFF?

AND THAT'S THE LAST THING ON

YOUR MIND.

YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT THE

PROCEDURES --

Terry: YOU'RE NOT JUST

RIDING.

YOU PERFORM WITH HIM.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

SHE IS A GRAND PRIX TRESAGE

HORSE, A GREAT HORSE.

Terry: PATRICIA

SAYS, "OUR TEENAGED GRANDSON

CALLED HIS MOM VIAL NAMES

AND PUT HIS FIST UP TO HER

FACE AND HAS NEVER

APOLOGIZED.

WHAT ROLES SHOULD THE AUNTS

AND UNCLES HAVE IN THIS

TEENAGER'S LIFE.

SHOW THEY CONSULT THE

TEENAGER WITHOUT CONSULTING

THE MOTHER?"

Pat: IF HE HAD A

FATHER, THAT KID WOULD NEVER

DO THAT AGAIN.

I THINK HE NEEDS AN

INTERVENTION.

IF HE DOESN'T HAVE A FATHER,

YOU NEED TO GET TOGETHER --

IF YOU KEEPS THAT UP, HE IS

GOING TO PRISON.

HE IS GOING TO KILL

SOMEBODY.

HE IS GOING TO ROB A STORE.

HE IS GOING TO DO SOMETHING,

AND HIS LIFE WILL BE TOTALLY

RUINED.

IF YOU LOVE HIM, HAVE AN

INTERVENTION.

TELL THE MOTHER WE WANT TO

HELP YOU.

Terry: PAT, THIS IS

JIM, WHO SAYS, "WHAT IN THE

UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

ALLOWS THE SUPREME COURT TO

ACCEPT CASES THAT DEAL WITH

SUBJECTS OVER WHICH THE

LEGISLATIVE BRANCH IS

PROHIBITED FROM MAKING

LAWS.

I REFER TO THE ACTIVISM OF

THE COURT IN DEALING WITH

RELIGIOUS ISSUES.

THEIR RULINGS HAVE THE

EFFECT OF LAWS."

Pat: I WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "COURTING DISASTER."

IT HAS ABOUT 172 SUPREME

COURT REFERENCES AND CASES.

I ANALYZED THESE THINGS

THOROUGHLY.

THERE IS NO WAY UNDER HEAVEN

I COULD DO IT IN THIS SHORT

LENGTH OF TIME.

THE SUPREME COURT HAS TAKEN

UNTO ITSELF POWER THAT WAS

NEVER INTENDED FOR IT TO

HAVE IN THE CONSTITUTION.

BUT WE HAVE ACCEPTED THAT,

AND OVER THE YEARS THE

SUPREME COURT HAS NOW BECOME

THE DOMINANT BRANCH.

THE ALLEGE LEGISLATURE IS

SUPPOSED TO BE THE DOMINANT

BRANCH IN THE CONSTITUTION,

THAT'S WHAT JEFFERSON SAID

AND I AGREE WITH HIM.

WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION

DOES IT SAY IT?

IT DOESN'T.

BUT THERE IS A CASE CALLED

MARBIRD VERSUS MADISON.

WHERE CHIEF JUDGE JOHN

MARSHAL GAVE THE COURTS THE

POWER TO NULLIFY LAWS.

AND IT WAS ONE OF THOSE

THINGS THAT DIDN'T HAVE A

BIG IMPACT.

BUT IT HAS LAID THERE AND IT

HAS GOTTEN BIGGER AND BIGGER

AND BIGGER AND BIGGER.

IF YOU WANT TO GET A BOOK,

READ IT.

IT'S CALLED "COURTING

DISASTER."

YOU CAN PROBABLY GET IT IN A

LIBRARY, OR MAYBE AT

AMAZON.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM LUKE 10:

19: "BEHOLD I GIVE YOU THE

AUTHORITY TO TRAMPLE ON

SERPENTS AND SCORPIONS AND

OVER ALL OF THE POWER OF THE

ENEMY, AND NOTHING SHALL BY

ANY MEANS HURT YOU."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

TOMORROW WE HAVE MIKE PENCE,

THE GOVERNOR OF INDIANA.

AND WE'VE GOT A LOT OF

THINGS GOING ON.

IF YOU NEED HELP, THE

COUNSELLORS ARE HERE 3 24

HOURS A DAY.

BUT FOR TERRY AND WENDY AND

ALL OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US,

AND WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
