The 700 Club - June 19, 2014

Author and pharmacist Suzy Cohen discusses thyroid health. Plus, Guillaume pursued whatever made him happy in life until he fell in love with a Christian girl and set out to disprove her faith. Read Transcript


WEIGHT GAIN OR FATIGUE?

FIND OUT WHAT COULD BE THE

CULPRIT.

AMERICA'S MOST TRUSTED

PHARMACIST, SUZY COHEN,

EXPLAINS.

PLUS...

I NEVER REALLY FELT

GUILTY ABOUT MUCH.

Wendy: AN ATHEIST PLAYS

MIND GAINS.

I JUST NEEDED TO CONVINCE

HER OUT OF HER STUPID

BELIEFS ABOUT GOD.

Wendy: HERE WHAT

CHANGED HIM.

I WAS FROZEN ON THE

DOORSTEP, WITH CHILLS ALL

AROUND.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: LOUIS CAROLLE SAYS

THE SITUATION IN IRAQ IS

GETTING CURIOUSER AND

CURIOUSER.

THEY HAVE A BIG REFINERY

THAT PUTS ABOUT ONE-THIRD OF

THE OIL PRODUCTS FOR THE

NATION OF IRAQ.

THE ISIS SAYS THEY HAVE

TAKEN IT, AND THE GOVERNMENT

OF IRAQ SAYS NO, WE'VE TAKEN

IT BACK.

AND IRAQ IS ASKING THE

UNITED STATES FOR HELP

AGAINST THOSE TERRORISTS,

WHO, I SAY, ARE ATTACKING

THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT.

THE TERRORISTS HAVE ALSO

TARGETED CHRISTIANS THERE.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THIS REPORT FROM THE FRONT

LINES OF THE BATTLE.

Reporter: WE LEFT THE

FRIENDLY CONFINES OF IRIL,

IRBIL, HEADED TOWARDS

NINEVEH, HOME TO SOME OF THE

BESIEGED CHRISTIANS.

WE WENT PAST THE KURDISH

ARMY, CALLED THE PESHMERGA.

ISIS CONTROLS THE MOUNTAINS

BEHIND US RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS THE TOWN CALLED

BARTILA.

IT HAS ABOUT 25,000

CHRISTIANS IN IT, BUT WE

COULDN'T FIND ONE THAT WOULD

TALK TO US ON CAMERA BECAUSE

THEY'RE AFRAID OF

RETRIBUTION.

THERE IS NO WATER BECAUSE

ISIS HAS TURNED IT OFF, AND

NO ELECTRICITY BECAUSE THE

MALIKI GOVERNMENT HAS TURNED

THAT OFF.

THEY ARE PROTECTED BY THE

PERSHMERGA.

THEY'RE ASKING FOR PRAYER

FOR CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD, AND ONE CHRISTIAN

LEADER TOLD ME, JUST LIKE

THE APOSTLE PAUL ASKED FOR

PRAYER, THEY'RE ASKING FOR

PRAYER THAT GOD WILL PROTECT

THIS TOWN AND THIS REGION.

BARTILA LIES JUST A FEW

MILES AWAY FROM NINEVEH.

WE FOUND THE TOWN NEARLY

DESERTED.

WHILE CHRISTIANS IN THE TOWN

WOULDN'T BE SEEN ON CAMERA,

WE TALKED TO ONE OF THE

HOUSE CHURCH LEADERS.

ON OUR WAY BACK TO THE

KURDISH CAPITAL, IRBIL, THE

PASTOR RELAYS WHAT HE SAID.

HE TOLD US WHEN ISIS

CAPTURED NINEVEH, THEY GAVE

CHRISTIANS THREE CHOICES.

THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO

OPEN THEIR CHURCHES.

AND EVEN IF THEY OPENED,

THEY ARE GOING TO BARREN THE

CHURCHES.

AND THE CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN

ASKED TO PAY THE TAX.

IF NOT, THEY CAN LEAVE

NINEVEH.

AND IF THEY DON'T LEAVE AND

THEY DIDN'T PAY THE TAX,

THEY SHOULD GIVE THEIR

HEADS.

Reporter: WHEN YOU SAY

GIVE THEIR HEADS, YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT BEING

BEHEADED?

YES.

Reporter: IN THE MIDST

OF THIS CALDRON SURROUNDING

THEM, THIS CHURCH LEADER

SENT OUT A PRAYER REQUEST,

S.O.S.

THIS IS WHAT WE NEED,

PRAYER.

GOD IS WORKING.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE

CHURCHES OUTSIDE OF IRAQ TO

RAISE UP PRAYERS AND ALSO TO

FAST FOR THE SAKE OF THE

PEOPLE OF IRAQ.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, ON THE

ROAD FROM BARTILA TO IRBIL.

Pat: THAT'S THE WAY IT

IS, FOLKS.

THAT'S THE RELIGION OF

PEACE.

THAT'S WHAT GEORGE BUSH SAID

ONCE UPON A TIME, IT IS A

RELIGION OF PEACE.

DON'T YOU BELIEVE ONE WORD

OF IT.

ISIS IS STRONG MUSLIM.

THEY WANT TO SET UP A MUSLIM

CALIPHATE, WHICH GOES FROM

SYRIA TO IRAQ, AND

ULTIMATELY THEY WANT TO TAKE

OVER EUROPE.

THEY HAVE BIG, BIG

AMBITIONS.

THEY CAN BE STOPPED.

THEY NEED TO BE STOPPED.

THEY ARE A BUNCH OF RAG-TAGS

RIDING IN PICKUP TRUCKS.

THIS ISN'T A BIG, FORMAL

ARMY.

BUT SOMEHOW THE IRAQI

MILITARY HAS JUST FALLEN

APART, THROWN DOWN THEIR

WEAPONS AND FLED.

IT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL.

HUGE OVERRULIN OVERWHELMING

SUPPORT.

THERE IS A HEADLINE IN THE

PAPER TODAY THAT THE U.S. IS

CALLING FOR MALIKI TO STEP

DOWN.

THAT'S WAY TOO LATE.

WHAT INFLUENCE COULD WE HAVE

HAD IF WE LEFT 25,000 TROOPS

THERE?

WE COULD HAVE HAD A STATUS

OF FORCES AGREEMENT.

IF WE HAD THAT, WE WOULD

HAVE INFLUENCE AND

LEVERAGE.

BUT WE DIDN'T DO ANY OF

THOSE THINGS BECAUSE WE HAVE

A PRESIDENT WHO IS NOT

ENGAGED.

SO THOSE CHRISTIANS IN THAT

LITTLE TOWN RUN THE RISK OF

BEING BEHEADED BY THE

RELIGION OF PEACE.

WELL, THE CRISIS IN IRAQ IS

ALSO HITTING AMERICANS HERE

AT HOME.

GUESS WHAT?

AT THE GAS PUMP, JUST AS THE

HOLIDAY DRIVING SEASON GETS

UNDER WAY.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE OF THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PAT, THE

PRICE OF OIL IS RISING, AND

SO IS THE COST OF MANY OTHER

ESSENTIALS LIKE MEAT, FISH,

AND EGGS.

AND AS CAITLIN BURKE

REPORTS, AMERICANS SHOULD

EXPECT TO PAY EVEN MORE IN

THE MONTHS AHEAD.

Reporter: THE SUMMER

TRAVEL SEASON IS HERE, A

TIME WHEN GAS PRICES OFTEN

DROP.

BUT NOT THIS YEAR.

THE CURRENT NATIONAL AVERAGE

FOR A GALLON OF GASOLINE IS

$3.67.

THAT'S HIGHER THAN IT HAS

BEEN SINCE 2008.

HIGH COSTS ARE BEING BLAMED,

IN PART, ON THE INSTABILITY

IN IRAQ.

ACCORDING TO A.A.A., BOTH

GAS PRICES AND OIL PRICES

HAVE STEADILY RISEN SINCE

JIHADISTS TOOK CONTROL OF

MOSUL LAST WEEK.

AND HIGH DEMAND AND THE COST

OF DRILLING IS PLAYING A

ROLE IN THE HIGH PRICE THAT

COSTUMERS ARE SEEING AT THE

PUMPS.

IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE TO

DRILL, AND SO WE NEED HIGHER

PRICES.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE HISTORY

GOING BACK FOR THE LAST FOUR

YEARS, ANYWAY, OIL PRICES

HAVE BEEN PRETTY STABLE.

THEY TEND TO SWING FROM THE

105 RANGE TO THE 93 RANGE.

ONE OF THESE DAYS IT IS

GOING TO BREAK OUT ABOVE

THAT.

WE MAY BE CLOSE TO THAT

HAPPENING SIMPLY BECAUSE OF

MORE DEMAND.

Reporter: THE COST OF

FOOD IS ALSO SKYROCKETING.

THE PRICE INDEX FOR MEATS,

POULTRY, FISH, AND EGGS, HIT

AN ALL-TIME HIGH IN MAY.

MEAT COSTS ARE RISING THE

FASTEST.

A SEVEN-YEAR DECLINE IN

HERDS HAS LEFT THE FEWEST

CATTLE IN AT LEAST SIX

DECADES.

ANALYSTS WARN THE HIGH

PRICES ARE HERE TO STAY.

AND SENATE LAWMAKERS

PROPOSED LEGISLATION THIS

WEEK TO RAISE THE FEDERAL

GAS AND DIESEL TAXES BY 12

CENTS PER GALLON OVER THE

NEXT TWO YEARS.

THAT PROPOSAL WAS PITCHED AS

A WAY TO PAY FOR HIGHWAY AND

TRANSIT PROGRAMS.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: PAT, IT LOOKS

LIKE SOME TOUGH TIMES

AHEAD.

Pat: WELL, THEY ARE A

LOT TOUGHER FOR PEOPLE

LIVING IN OTHER COUNTRIES.

WE'VE GOT IT SO MUCH

EASIER.

AS FAR AS GASOLINE, OUR

GASOLINE IS PROBABLY A THIRD

THE PRICE OF WHAT IT IS IN

EUROPE.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE'RE RIDING

ON AN ABUNDANCE.

IN ABOUT A YEAR, IF THE

GOVERNMENT WILL KEEP LIAR

THEIR HANDS OFF THE OIL AND

GAS INDUSTRY, WE PROBABLY

WOULD BE SELF-SUFFICIENT IN

OIL.

UNBELIEVABLE.

NOBODY THOUGHT IT WOULD BE

POSSIBLE.

THERE ARE DRILLING RIGS.

AND THEY'VE GOT NEW

TECHNIQUES NOW.

THEY TALK ABOUT FRACKING,

WHICH IS A BIG DEAL, AND NOW

THEY HAVE WHAT THEY CALL

STACK PAYS.

THEY PUT A RIG IN AND THEY

GO DOWN FOR FOUR.

THEY HIT ONE AND GO FOR

ANOTHER AND ANOTHER AND

ANOTHER.

THEY'RE PRODUCING AS MANY AS

FOUR ZONES AT A TIME WITH

ONE RIG.

AND THE TIME OF DRILLING HAS

SHRUNK TO A MATTER OF A

COUPLE OF WEEKS.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE HOW

EFFICIENT OUR OIL INDUSTRY

IS.

AND WE OWE THEM A GREAT

DEBT.

BUT I'M SURE CONGRESS WON'T

LIKE IT.

THEY WANT TO DO EVERYTHING

THEY CAN TO GET THEIR HANDS

ON IT.

WELL, I HAVE BEEN DISGUSTED,

ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED, AT THE

CONDUCT OF THE INTERNAL

REVENUE SERVICE.

THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO PRY

INTO ALL OF OUR DOCUMENTS.

THEY CAN PUT A HOLD ON OUR

BANK ACCOUNTS.

THEY CAN COME IN AND, YOU

KNOW, SUBPOENA EVERY

DOCUMENT YOU'VE GOT IN YOUR

HOUSE.

THEY CAN LOOK AT ALL OF THE

THINGS YOU'RE DOING.

THEY CAN APPRAISE YOUR

HOUSE, YOUR CAR, YOUR

TUITION, AND HOW MANY

GRANDCHILDREN YOU'VE GOT,

AND DECIDE YOU'RE NOT PAYING

ENOUGH TAXES.

THEY CAN BE VERY DICTATORIAL

IN THAT POWER.

BUT SOMEHOW THEY THINK THE

LAW DOESN'T APPLY TO THEM.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, THE

E-MAILS OF A FORMER I.R.S.

OFFICIAL ARE LIKELY GONE

FOREVER.

THEY WERE A KEY PART OF THE

INVESTIGATION INTO THE

I.R.S. TEA PARTY TARGETING

SCANDAL.

SOURCES TELL POLÍTICO THE

COMPUTER HARD MAIL WHERE

LOIS LERNER'S E-MAILS WERE

STORED WERE RECYCLED.

THE CONGRESS HELD LERNER IN

CONTEMPT AFTER SHE REFUSED

TO TESTIFY ABOUT THE

INVESTIGATION.

THE U.S. PATENT OFFICE

CANCELLED SIX TRADEMARKS

CALLING THE NAME "REDSKINS",

QUOTE,"DISPARAGING TO THE

NATIVE AMERICANS."

BUT THE REDSKINS WILL STILL

USE THE NAME DURING THE

PROCESS, WHICH WILL LIKELY

GO ON FOR YEARS.

PAT?

Pat: I MAY BE SHOWING

MY AGE, BUT I KNEW THE GUY

NAMED GUS WALSH, WHO WAS

THEIR COACH.

HE WAS AN INDIAN,

NATIVE-AMERICAN, WHATEVER.

AND THEY NAMED THE TEAM

AFTER HIM IN HONOR OF GUS

WALSH.

THAT WAS TO HONOR HIM.

AND THAT TH THAT'S THE WAY

IT WAS.

AND THERE WAS A GUY NAMED

JIM THORPE, WHO WAS AN

INDIAN, WHO WAS ONE OF THE

MOST INCREDIBLE BACKS THAT

EVER LIVED, PLAYED

FOOTBALL.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF HE

PLAYED FOR WASHINGTON OR

NOT, BUT HE WAS A STAR IN

CHICAGO.

IN ANY EVENT, THIS WAS AN

HONOR OF GUS WALSH, AND

HONOR.

AND NOW IT IS,

QUOTE,"DISPARAGING."

SO THE TRADEMARK OFFICE SAYS

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE AWAY

YOUR LOGO.

THEY CAN'T TAKE AWAY THE

COMMON LAW USE OF IT.

THEY CAN TAKE AWAY THE

REGISTRATION.

SURE ENOUGH, DAN SNYDER, WHO

OWNS THE TEAM, IS GOING TO

APPEAL, SAYING YOU'RE TAKING

AWAY MY PROPERTY WITHOUT DUE

PROCESS OF LAW.

AND THE FEDERAL COURTS WILL

REVERSE THE FINDING OF THE

PATENT OFFICE.

AND THEY'LL SAY IT IS A

TIME-HONORED LOGO AND YOU'VE

HAD IT FOREVER.

BUT THEY'VE GOT THE

BLACKHAWKS.

YOU'VE GOT THE CLEVELAND

INDIANS.

YOU'VE GOT THE ATLANTA

BRAVES.

YOU'VE GOT THAT BUNCH DOWN

THERE IN FLORIDA STATE,

WHERE THEY DRIVE YOU CRAZY

WITH THAT TOMAHAWK CHANT.

THEY JUST DRIVE YOU CRAZY

WITH THAT NONSENSE.

AND NOW THEY'VE GOT THE COW,

YOU KNOW, OF CHICK-FIL-A,

DOING THE TOMAHAWK THING.

AND THAT'S NOT

DISPARAGING.

IT DRIVES THE FANS CRAZY.

JOHN?

Reporter: WITH ONLY TWO

DAYS UNTIL THE OFFICIAL

START OF SUMMER, THE UNITED

STATES IS EXPERIENCING BOTH

SUMMER AND WINTER ALL AT

ONCE.

A HEATWAVE IS HITTING THE

EAST COAST WITH TEMPERATURES

OVER 90°, SHATTERING RECORDS

FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.

IN PHILADELPHIA, KIDS WERE

SENT HOME EARLY FROM SCHOOL

BECAUSE IT GOT TOO HOT.

HERE IN WASHINGTON, D.C., WE

HAVE SEEN THE THERMOSTAT GO

UP TO 94°.

MEANWHILE, A RARE JUNE

SNOWFALL HIT THE MOUNTAINS

OF UTAH AND WYOMING EARLIER

THIS WEEK.

SOME AREAS OF UTAH GETTING

AS MANY AS NINE INCHES.

WE'RE IN CALIFORNIA, SO

SNOW IN JUNE IS A LITTLE

ODD.

WE SIGNED UP FOR A LITTLE

SUN.

BUT THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A

LITTLE DIFFERENT.

Reporter: THE NATIONAL

WEATHER SERVICE PREDICTS

ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES

FOR BOTH COASTS AND THE

SOUTH THIS SUMMER.

PAT, I THINK WE BOTH CAN

AGREE THIS IS EXTREME

WEATHER.

Pat: I DIDN'T EVEN RIDE

YESTERDAY.

I WASN'T GOING TO EXPOSE MY

HORSE TO THAT.

I HAVE A THERMOMETER, A

LITTLE THING ON THE WINDOW,

RIGHT OUTSIDE MY KITCHEN.

AND I LOOKED AT THAT

YESTERDAY AFTERNOON -- WOULD

YOU LIKE TO GUESS HOW HOT IT

WAS OUTSIDE OF MY KITCHEN IN

THE SUN?

Terry: MY CARSE CAR

SAID 103°.

WHAT DID YOUR THERMOMETER

SAY?

Pat: WOULD YOU LIKE TO

GUESS?

Terry: 104?

Pat: 121.

Terry: NO WAY.

Pat: 121°.

RIGHT OUTSIDE MY KITCHEN.

TERRIBLE.

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, A FOOD

AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION

PANEL HAS GIVEN ITS SUPPORT

FOR A NEW ELECTRONIC IMPLANT

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SEVERELY

OBESE.

THE IDEA IS THAT THE IMPLANT

WILL HELP CURVE THE APPETITE

FOR PEOPLE.

IT IS FOR PEOPLE WHO TRIED

TO LOSE WEIGHT BY

TRADITIONAL METHODS AND

WEREN'T ABLE TO.

IT HELPED THEM LOSE ABOUT 8%

TO 9% MORE WEIGHT IN TRIALS

OF PEOPLE THAN PEOPLE WHO

DIDN'T HAVE IT.

THE PANEL MAY BE LIKELY TO

IMPROVE THE IMPLANT FOR

SALE.

AND THE DEVICE WILL ONLY BE

AVAILABLE TO PATIENTS WHO'S

BODY MASS INDEX ARE AT LEAST

40, WHICH IS, OF COURSE,

CONSIDERED OBESE.

Pat: I DON'T UNDERSTAND

WHAT'S GOING ON.

YES, I DO.

IT IS HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN

SYRUP.

IT'S IN EVERYTHING.

AND THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY

SETS THAT STUFF IN MOTION TO

MAKE YOU WANT MORE OF THEM.

THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO EAT

ONE BIG MAC.

THEY WANT YOU TO EAT ONE

EVERY DAY OR MORE.

THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO EAT

ONE CRACKER.

THEY WANT YOU TO EAT A BOX

OF CRACKERS.

THAT'S WHAT THEY DO.

THEY SELL THAT STUFF AND SET

IT IN MOTION SO IT MAKES YOU

HUNGRY ALL OF THE TIME.

AND SOMEHOW WHEN YOU TURN

THAT MECHANISM OFF -- SUZY

COHEN IS GOING TO BE WITH

US.

AND SHE'S GOING TO TALK

ABOUT THYROID AND WHAT

THYROID HAS TO DO IN TERMS

OF WEIGHT GAIN.

SHE LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT.

MAYBE THERE IS A SWITCH THAT

SUZY CAN TELL US ABOUT.

Terry: THEY SAY IT IS

THE DISEASE YOU COULD BE

SUFFERING FROM AND NOT EVEN

KNOW IT.

GET YOUR THYROID CHECKUP.

WHEN AMERICA'S PHARMACIST

SUZY COHEN JOINS US --

THAT'S COMING UP.

FIRST, THIS IS VERY

EXCITING.

SO HOW TECHNOLOGY IS GIVING

BIBLE LESSONS IN AREAS SO

REMOTE THEY'RE NOT EVEN ON

THE MAP.

COMING UP.

.

Pat: WELL, THE BIBLE

TELLS US THAT AT THE TOWER

OF BABEL, GOD CONFUSED THE

LANGUAGES OF THE WORLD.

AND THERE ARE A BUNCH OF

THEM NOW.

IMAGINE HOW MANY OF THERE,

7,000.

AND BIBLE TRANSLATORS ARE

WORKING TO TRANSLATE THE

BIBLE INTO EVERY SINGLE ONE

OF THESE 7,000 LANGUAGES.

WELL, MODERN TECHNOLOGY IS

MAKING IT EASIER.

AS EPHRAIM GRAHAM REPORTS,

AREAS CAN NOW BE REACHED

THAT ARE SO REMOTE THEY'RE

NOT EVEN ON THE MAP.

Reporter: THE MISSION

IS CLEAR: THE MOMENT YOU

ARRIVE AT WICKLAND'S

HEADQUARTERS, DELIVERING THE

GOSPEL TO EVERY NATION,

EVERY TRIBE, AND EVERY

LANGUAGE.

A FRIEND OF MINE SAYS,

WELL, I THINK THAT THEY NEED

TO HEAR FROM GOD IN THE

LANGUAGE IN WHICH THEY SIN.

Reporter: BRUCE SMITH

GUIDES THAT MISSION.

THE REGENT UNIVERSITY

GRADUATE IS PRESIDENT OF

WICKLAND ASSOCIATES.

WHEN THEY'RE PLEADING TO

GOD ABOUT THEIR DESPERATE

SITUATION, ABOUT THEIR

FAMILY, ABOUT THEIR

PHYSICAL, ECONOMIC,

POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS --

ABOUT ALL OF THOSE

CIRCUMSTANCES -- THEY PRAY

IN THEIR FIRST LANGUAGE.

AND THEY NEED TO HEAR AN

ANSWER FROM GOD IN THAT SAME

LANGUAGE.

Reporter: WICKLAND

ASSOCIATES SITS HERE ON

TRANSLATION WAY IN ORLANDO,

FLORIDA.

FROM HERE, IN THE LAST YEAR,

THE ORGANIZATION HAS WORKED

WITH SOME 3,000 VOLUNTEERS

IN SOME 70 COUNTRIES TO

SPEED UP THE PROCESS OF

TRANSLATING THE BIBLE.

MANY OF THOSE COUNTRIES ARE

QUITE DIFFICULT TO REACH.

THE CHALLENGE WE FACE

TODAY IN THE 21st CENTURY

IS THAT ALL OF THE EASY

PLACES ARE FINISHED.

ALL THAT IS LEFT ARE THE

DIFFICULT PLACES.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

BIGGEST CHALLENGES IN THOSE

DIFFICULT PLACES IS RELIABLE

COMMUNICATION.

IT'S A NEED THAT GAVE BIRTH

TO WHAT BRUCE SMITH CALLS

THE BIBLE TRANSLATION

ACCELERATION KIT, OR BETAC.

WE FOUND A WHOLE POOL OF

TALENTS, READY, WILLING AND

ABLE TO BE ABLE TO HELP

BIBLE TRANSLATION, BUT NOT

KNOWING HOW.

AND THEY JUST CAME FLOODING

IN OUR DIRECTION.

I PRETTY QUICKLY HAD A

MANPOWER TEAM THAT WAS LIKE

A DREAM TEAM.

Reporter: THAT KIT

INCLUDES A SOLAR PANEL THAT

GENERATES ELECTRICITY TO

CHARGE A BATTERY THAT RUNS A

SMALL LAPTOP AND INTERNET

MODEM, THAT CONNECTS TO THE

INTERNET BY SATELLITE.

IN JUST THREE YEARS, THE

KITS HAVE SERVED ABOUT 295

TRANSLATION TEAMS.

SOME OF THE TRANSLATION

TEAMS ARE TELLING US THAT

JUST BY HAVING RELIABLE

COMMUNICATION, THEIR

TRANSLATION PACE HAS

DOUBLED.

OKAY, THIS IS NOT BECAUSE

THEY'VE BECOME FASTER

TRANSLATORS.

IT IS BECAUSE ALL OF THE

DELAYS THAT WERE INHERENT IN

THE SYSTEM BEFORE, WAITING

FOR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS,

NOT KNOWING HOW TO PROCEED

FORWARD, WAITING TO TRADE

FILES AND GET RESPONSES

BACK -- THOSE DELAYS ARE NOW

GONE.

[YELLING]

Reporter: THERE IS

OFTEN CELEBRATION WHEN THE

KITS ARRIVE IN THESE REMOTE

PLACES.

THE FIRST TEAM I

CONNECTED WAS KIBAKU, AND

THE SECOND TEAM WAS KOMWAY.

MANY OF THESE PLACES ARE NOT

CITIES ON A MAP.

THEY ARE AREAS WHERE SEMI

NOMADIC PEOPLE TAKE CARE OF

ANIMALS AND HAVE SEASONAL

FARMS.

THESE ARE NOT CITIES OF ANY

KIND OF DESCRIPTION AT ALL.

SO THEY MAY HAVE TELEPHONE

POLES, BUT THE POLES HAVE NO

WIRES ON THEM.

Reporter: VOLUNTEERS

ALSO FIND COMFORT IN THE

CONNECTION.

THEY HAVE THE CAPABILITY,

VERY SIMPLY, TO CONNECT THAT

COMPUTER AND COMMUNICATE

WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THEIR

LOCAL AREA, AND THAT'S A

HUGE PERSONAL ENCOURAGEMENT

TO THEM.

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

RISKING THEIR LIVES IN MANY

CASES, ON THE ROADS, IN

UNSAFE CONDITIONS, IN AREAS

THAT ARE ANTAGONISTIC TO

CHRISTIANS.

Reporter: AND THIS WORK

ALSO HELPS TO OPEN A NEW

DOOR TO MISSIONS WORK.

2006, THE FIRST

BABY-BOOMER STARTED TURNING

60.

THE LAST BABY-BOOMERS DON'T

TURN 60 UNTIL 2024.

SO RIGHT NOW WE'RE IN A

UNIQUE PROVISION, I FEEL, IN

TERMS OF GOD'S PREPARATION

IN THE LIVES OF ALL OF THESE

CHRISTIANS WHO CAN

CONTRIBUTE TO MISSIONS AND

CAN CONTRIBUTE TO BIBLE

TRANSLATION IN A WAY TODAY

THAT WASN'T POSSIBLE 20

YEARS AGO.

Reporter: PETER PALONI

IS A RETIRED ENGINEER WHO

HELPS TO ASSEMBLE THE BIBLE

TRANSLATION KITS.

HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE BEEN

VOLUNTEERING AT WICKLAND FOR

THE LAST FOUR YEARS.

IT IS A TREMENDOUS

ENVIRONMENT.

IT GIVES YOU MUCH DEEPER

INSIGHT INTO WHAT IS GOING

ON AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: LIKE A

GROWING NUMBER OF RETIREES,

PETER ESCAPES THE HARSH

WINTERS BACK AT HOME IN

PHILADELPHIA, AND LENDS HIS

SKILLS TO MISSIONS WORK IN

ORLANDO.

ARE YOU COMING BACK NEXT

YEAR?

LORD WILLING.

THAT IS ALL DEPENDENT ON HIM

AND OUR HEALTH.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS, ORLANDO,

FLORIDA.

Pat: THAT IS

WONDERFUL.

THE ORIGINAL WICKCLIFF, IF

I'M NOT MISTAKEN, WAS BURNED

AT THE STAKE FOR TRANSLATING

THE BIBLE INTO VERNACULAR

ENGLISH.

AND TINDLE WAS THERE AND

WICKCLIFF WERE WORKING

TOGETHER.

Terry: LOOK AT THE

WORK.

Pat: AND I UNDERSTAND

THAT HE WAS A RECENT

UNIVERSITY GRAD.

I'M GLAD WE COULD

PARTICIPATE.

BUT THE TRANSLATION

ORGANIZATION IS A TERRIFIC

ORGANIZATION.

I RECOMMEND THAT HEARTEDLY.

THEY DO A GREAT WORK.

WE'VE BEEN PRIVILEGED OVER

THE YEARS TO HELP SUPPORT

THEM AND WORK ALONGSIDE

THEM.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, IT IS

A BUTTERFLY-SHAPED GLAND AT

THE BASE OF YOUR NECK, AND

IT COULD BE WHY YOU CAN'T

LOSE WEIGHT.

AMERICA'S PHARMACIST, SUZY

COHEN, SHOWS YOU HOW TO HAVE

A HEALTHY THYROID WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: IT IS ESTIMATED

THAT AN AMAZING 20 MILLION

AMERICANS SUFFER FROM

THYROID DISEASE.

AND MORE THAN HALF OF THEM

DON'T EVEN KNOW IT.

YOU MAY BE ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE SO PLAGUED.

SO WATCH THIS SEGMENT

CLOSELY.

Reporter: SUZY COHEN,

AMERICA'S MOST TRUSTED

PHARMACIST, SAYS THERE IS AN

EPIDEMIC IN OUR COUNTRY.

PEOPLE ARE THYROID SICK, AND

MOST DONE EVEN KNO DON'T

EVEN KNOW THIS.

SHE KNOWS THIS BECAUSE IN

2007 SHE EXPERIENCED WEIGHT

GAIN, HAIR LOSS, AND FAG

TEGFATIGUE, AND WAS SOON

DIAGNOSED WITH LOW THYROID

DISORDER.

SHE SHARES WHAT MEDICATION

AND DIET HELPED HER WITH

RECOVERY.

AND SHE ALSO TELLS US HOW TO

LIVE THYROID SMART AND

THYROID HEALTHY.

Pat: WELL, PLEASE

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB," AMERICA'S PHARMACIST,

SUZY COHEN.

GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

GOOD TO SEE YOU, TOO,

PAT.

Pat: YOU'VE WRITTEN

ANOTHER BOOK, AND I DON'T

KNOW HOW YOU DO IT, BUT THIS

IS CALLED "THYROID HEALTHY,

LOSE WEIGHT AND LOOK

BEAUTIFUL AND LIVE THE LIFE

YOU IMAGINE."

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IT COMING UP FROM MY OWN

ILLNESS WITH THYROID

DISEASE.

Pat: THE THYROID, AS I

UNDERSTAND IT, CONTROLS YOUR

GROWTH.

IT IS A MASTER REGULATOR?

YES.

IT IS THE MASTER HORMONE IN

YOUR BODY.

IT CONTROLS YOUR TEMPERATURE

AND METABOLISM.

SO FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE

STRUGGLING WITH WEIGHT OR

THEY CAN'T LOSE WEIGHT AND

THEY'RE COLD ALL THE TIME,

BRITTLE NAILS, THEIR HAIR IS

FALLING OUT IN CLUMPS, THIS

COULD ALL BE RELATED TO

THYROID DISEASE.

Pat: I'VE SEEN THAT

ARMOR THYROID, WHICH IS

BASED ON ANIMAL.

AND THEN THERE IS A

SYNTHETIC THING THEY GIVE

PEOPLE.

YES.

Pat: IS THERE A

DIFFERENCE IN YOUR OPINION

BETWEEN THEM?

YES.

THEY'RE DIFFERENT

MEDICATIONS.

THEY BOTH REQUIRE BOTH A

PRESCRIPTION.

THE ARMOR THAT YOU MENTIONED

AND ANOTHER ONE ARE RELATED

TO EACH OTHER AND THEY'RE

NATURAL.

AND THEY CONTAIN T-4 AND T-3

HORMONES, AND SENSEEROD

EXACTLY MATCHING THAT WHICH

YOUR THYROID GLAND MAKES.

THE MEDICATIONS TEMPORARILY

RAISE YOUR THYROID LEVELS,

BUT THEY'RE NOT FIXING THE

UNDERLYING PROBLEM, WHICH

COULD BE RELATED TO MANY

THINGS.

IT COULD BE IODINE

DEFICIENCY, IT COULD BE

RELATED TO LOW IRON.

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS FOR ME.

Pat: YOU SEE THESE

PEOPLE WITH THIS GOYTER, AND

THE THING SWELLS UP.

IT USUALLY IS IODINE

DEFICIENCY, BUT THE DOCTOR

WOULD HAVE TO FIND THAT

OUT.

AND THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO AN

ULTRASOUND AND OTHER TESTS.

THAT'S THE PROBLEM I HAVE

WITH THE CURRENT MEDICAL

SYSTEM, WHICH IS THE TESTING

ISN'T VERY GOOD.

VERY FEW PATIENTS ARE GIVEN

THE ULTRASOUND TEST, WHICH

IS NON-INVASIVE.

AND THEY'RE NOT TESTED

CORRECTLY WITH THEIR BLOOD

TESTS, EITHER.

THIS IS A HUGE SECRET I'M

ABOUT TO TELL THE WORLD.

AND I'M NOT AFRAID TO DO

IT.

Pat: THERE IS A BLOOD

TEST AND YOU GET A READING

AND THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBES

MEDICINE ON THE STRENGTH OF

THAT READING.

YES.

AND THE DOCTORS WILL TELL

YOU YOU'RE NORMAL, EVEN

THOUGH YOUR FACE IS PLANTED

ON THE FLOOR AND YOUR

EXHAUSTED AND YOU ARE COLD,

BECAUSE THE TESTS WILL SAY

YOU'RE NORMAL ALMOST 80% OF

THE TIME.

AND YOU'LL FALL THROUGH THE

CRACKS.

AND YOU HAVE ALL OF THESE

SYMPTOMS, YOU COULD BE THE

POSTER CHILD FOR THYROID

DISEASE.

YOU COULD HAVE HEAVY WEIGHT

AND BE SUFFERING WITH MANY

SYMPTOMS, BUT THE TESTING IS

INACCURATE.

Pat: WHY IS THE TESTING

INACCURATE?

THEY'RE BASING IT ON

PEOPLE WHO WERE VERY SICK.

PLUS, THEY'RE MEASURING THE

T.S.H., AND OFTENTIMES

THEY'RE GAUGING YOUR

MEDICATION DOSE ON THE

T.S.H. TEST IS REALLY

REFLECTIVE OF THE THYROID

HORMONE IN YOUR BRAIN.

YOUR BRAIN IS NEVER GOING TO

STARVE.

BY THE TIME YOUR T.S.H. TEST

COMES UP ABNORMAL, YOU'VE

BEEN SICK FOR YEARS.

IN MY BOOK, I TALK ABOUT THE

BETTER TESTS THAT ARE

AVAILABLE FOR THE SAME PRICE

OR LESS.

Pat: WHAT WAS WRONG

WITH YOU, AND WHAT WERE THE

SYMPTOMS THAT YOU HAD?

WELL, WHAT WAS WRONG WITH

ME?

I WAS HANDED A PRESCRIPTION

FOR AN ANTI-DEPRESSANT,

WHICH IS RATHER INSULTING,

BECAUSE ANYONE WHO KNOWS ME

KNOWS I'M HAPPY-GO-LUCKY.

THIS IS A TIME IN MY LIFE

WHERE I WAS UNDER A LOT OF

STRESS, AND I WAS CARING FOR

MY HUSBAND WHO WAS ILL.

I COULDN'T DO ZOOMBA, AND I

WAS DIZZY --

Pat: I COULDN'T DO

ZUMBA.

I WOULD NEED A WHOLE

PHARMAACOPIA TO DO ZUMBA

DANCING.

BUT YOU GO HORSEBACK

RIDING.

I JUST NOTICED THINGS WERE

DIFFERENT.

AND I STARTED HOLDING ON TO

WEIGHT, AND I HAD ALWAYS

BEEN THIN.

AND THEY TESTED ME WITH THIS

T.S.H. TEST, AND THEY SAID,

SIEWDSUZY, YOUR NORMAL.

I WAS ANYTHING BUT NORMAL.

I WAS TWO SIZES UP.

AND NORMAL FOR ME -- THAT IS

HOW I AM NOW.

I GOT ON A MISSION, AND I

FIGURED OUT WHAT WAS WRONG

WITH ME.

I HAD LOW IRON WHICH WAS

CAUSING LOW THYROID, WHICH

WAS TRIGGERING INTO LOW

ADRENALS, AND SO I WROTE A

BOOK.

Pat: WHAT IS THIS COLD

HANDS THING?

MY WIFE SAYS I'M FREEZING.

AND I'M BURNING UP.

WELL, COLD HANDS AND THE

LOSS OF YOUR EYEBROWS OUR

EYELASHES OR THINNING HAIR,

VERY HALLMARK SIGNS FOR

THYROID DISEASE.

BUT THESE WOMEN ARE TOLD

THEY HAVE CHRONIC FATIGUE,

AND THEORY SENT HOME WITH A

PRESCRIPTION FOR AN

ANTI-DEPRESSANT AND THEN

INCOMES AL IN COMES ALL OF

THE OTHER MEDICATIONS.

AND I'M SAYING IT IS

PROBABLY LOW THYROID, WHICH

IS OFTEN MISDIAGNOSED.

Pat: HOW DO YOU GET

YOUR DOCTOR TO DIAGNOSE IT?

YOU HAVE TO BECOME YOUR

OWN HEALTH AD KATIE.

ADVOCATE.

SO I WROTE A BOOK, AND I

HAVE A SUMMIT, CALLED "THE

THYROID SUMMIT."

AND THAT'S THE WEBSITE,

thethyroidsummit.com ."

EMPOWER YOURS AND GET

KNOWLEDGE FROM YOUR DOCTOR.

Pat: IT SEEMS THAT WHAT

KEEPS TURNING UP IN

INFLAMMATION.

AND YOU INDICATE THAT'S AT

THE HEART OF THE THYROID --

YES, THE THYROID GLAND

CAN BECOME INFLAMED.

AND THIS COULD HAPPEN FROM

DRINKING FROM PLASTIC WATER

BOTTLES, FROM ALCOHOL, FROM

UNRELENTING STRESS.

YOU HAVE TO SUPPORT YOUR

BODY WITH THE RIGHT

NUTRIENTS.

Pat: LET'S LOOK AT THIS

STUFF HERE.

THYROID SOUP.

THIS IS A DIETARY SUPPLEMENT

THAT I FORMULATED BASED ON

MY EXPERIENCE.

Pat: THAT'S YOUR DEAL?

IT'S MY DEAL.

AND IT CONTAINS VARIOUS

DIFFERENT MINERALS AND "B"

VITAMINS.

WHAT YOUR GLAND MAKES IS

T-4.

IT DOESN'T WORK.

T-4 DOESN'T WORK UNTIL IT

LOSES IODINE AND CREATES

T-3.

WHEN YOU HAVE T-3, YOU WAKE

UP AND YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL

AND YOU START TO LOSE

WEIGHT.

MOST PEOPLE ARE TAKING A T-4

DRUG, BUT THAT T-4 ISN'T

WORKING FOR THEM UNTIL IT

BECOMES T-3.

A SUPPLEMENT THAT HELPS THE

PERIPHERAL CONVERSION OF T-4

TO T-3 WILL DO THAT.

ASHWAGANDA WILL DO THAT.

AND THAT SOOTHES THE ADRENAL

GLANDS, AND HELPS WITH THE

CONVERSION OF T-4 TO T-3.

MINERALS, SUCH AS IN KELTIC

SALT AND HIMALAYAN.

NOTICE THE COLOR OF THE

SALT.

IT IS GRAY OR PINK.

IT IS LOADED WITH MINERALS,

UNLIKE TABLE SALT.

IT IS JUST EVAPORATED OCEAN

WATER --

Pat: FROM IRELAND, THE

CELTIC SALT?

YES.

BASICALLY WHAT WE'RE LOOKING

AT IS SALTS THAT CONTAIN

MINERALS.

AND YOU CAN TELL BECAUSE

THEY HAVE COLOR.

IF YOU'RE USING TABLE SALT,

WHICH IS STRIPPED -- TABLE

SALT IS EVERYWHERE.

IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY OF THE

MINERALS.

AND WHEN YOU'RE MINERAL

DEFICIENT, YOU CAN'T WAKE

UP.

YOU CAN'T MAKE THYROID

HORMONE, AND YOU CAN'T GET

THAT THYROID HORMONE INSIDE

THE CELL.

THAT'S WHERE YOU WANT IT.

Pat: HOW ABOUT THE

ZINC?

I HAVE BRAZIL NUTS, WHICH

CONTAIN ZINC AND SELENIUM.

THERE IS A SECRET WITH THE

BRAZIL NUTS.

YOU NEVER WANT TO EAT MORE

THAN FOUR PER DAY BECAUSE

THEY'RE LOADED WITH

SELENIUM.

WHICH IS GREAT FOUR YOUR

THYROID GLAND AND ALSO FOR

YOUR PROSTATE.

AND SELENIUM HELPS WITH THAT

ACTIVATION OF THYROID

HORMONE AND IT ALSO REDUCES

ANTI-BODIES WHICH FORM

AGAINST THE THYROID, AND

MISTAKENLY CAUSE WOMEN TO

GET DIAGNOSED WITH BIPOLAR

DISEASE AND OTHER THINGS

THEY DON'T HAVE.

Pat: FOUR OF THOSE A

DAY?

FOUR A DAY.

I MADE THE MISTAKE OF MAKING

BRAZIL NUT MILK, AND YOU

HAVE TO USE A VITAMIX FULL

AND GRIND THEM UP.

AND I WAS RUNNING AROUND THE

HOUSE LIKE THE COPPER TOP

BUNNY AND I HAD INSOMNIA AND

TREMORS.

I REALIZED I WAS DEALING

WITH EXCESSIVE SELENIUM FOR

THAT DAY OR TWO.

IT WAS TOO MUCH SELENIUM.

SO DON'T MAKE MILK OUT OF

IT.

JUST EAT FOUR A DAY.

Pat: AND YOU TAKE ZINC

AND WHAT ELSE?

YES, ZINC.

THE WHOLE KEY FOR PEOPLE IS

TO RECOGNIZE MAYBE THEY'RE

NOT HYPOTHYROID, BUT THEY'RE

THYROID SICK.

HYPOTHYROID WOULD MEAN

YOU'RE THYROID WASN'T

CRANKING OUT ENOUGH.

FOR MOST PEOPLE ARE MAKING

THAT, BUT THEY'RE NOT

CONVERTING THAT T-4 TO T-3.

Pat: SOMEONE ON OUR

STAF STAFF WHO IS VERY

SPECIAL IS HAVING THEIR

THYROID REMOVED.

TELL THEM TO GO TO THE

thyroidsummit.com BECAUSE

THERE IS INFORMATION THERE

THEY NEED.

Pat: WHY WOULD SOMEONE

WANT TO TAKE A THYROID OUT?

WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT

WANTS TO BURN YOU, I.E.

RADIATION, OR TAKE OUT PARTS

THAT WERE GOD-GIVEN.

Pat: IF YOU TAKE THE

THYROID OUT, YOU'RE

THEREFORE DEPENDENT ON PILLS

FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

YES, YOU ARE.

BECAUSE YOU'RE FOREVER MORE

HYPOTHYROID.

Pat: AND IF YOU DON'T

TAKE THE PILLS --

THEN YOU'RE GOING TO BE

VERY SICK AND YOU'LL HAVE

HEART DISEASE AND OTHER

PROBLEMS.

MY CALLING IS TO HELP

PEOPLE.

I'VE STUDIED THIS EVERY DAY,

AND I'VE HELPED PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE

SUMMIT.

AND I'M HERE TO TELL YOU IF

YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED OR

MISDIAGNOSED, THERE IS HOPE

FOR YOU.

YOU NEED TO GET THE CORRECT

DIAGNOSIS, THE CORRECT

SUPPLEMENTS TO SUPPORT YOUR

BODY AND START EATING

CORRECTLY.

Pat: WHERE DO YOU GET

THE BOOK.

AMAZON OR MY WEBSITE,

SuzyCohen.com BECAUSE I

THINK AMAZON IS SOLD OUT

ALREADY.

Pat: THIS IS POWERFUL

STUFF.

WHEN I WAS A KID, THEY SAID

MY THYROID WASN'T WORKING

RIGHT AND THEY GAVE YOU

THYROID MEDICINE.

THAT USED TO BE THE

DIAGNOSIS.

YOU'RE A LITTLE OVERWEIGHT.

YES.

AND THEY TELL LITTLE BOYS

NOW THEIR CHOLESTEROL IS

HIGH.

YOU CAN'T MEDICATE YOURSELF

FOR EVERY SYMPTOM.

WITH THYROID DISEASE, YOU'LL

HAVE 10 OR 12 SYMPTOMS, AND

THEY'LL GIVE YOU 10 OR 12

DRUGS.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS

ACTIVATE THAT T-4 AND T-3.

WITH A HANDFUL OF

SUPPLEMENTS AND THE RIGHT

FOOD, YOU CAN START TO LIVE

THE LIFE YOU IMAGINED.

Pat: YOU'RE WONDERFUL.

I'M A REBEL.

Pat: DO ME A FAVOR.

DON'T RIGHT TOO MANY BOOKS.

YOU'LL EXHAUST YOURSELF --

MAYBE YOU WOULDN'T, MAYBE

YOU'LL HAVE A SUPER

THYROID.

I WRITE THEM TO COME ON

YOUR SHOW.

Pat: SUZY COHEN, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

HER WEBSITE IS CALLED

thethyroidsummit.com AND

YOU CAN LINK TO THAT, GO TO

cbnnews.com AND THEN THE

THYROID SUMMIT.

SUZY, YOU'RE THE GREATEST.

I HAVE BEEN BLESSED.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

CONFIRMED ATHEIST GOES ON A

FACT-FINDING MISSION TO

CHURCH.

I WALKED INTO THE CHURCH,

AND I WENT THERE REALLY THE

SAME WAY YOU WOULD GO TO THE

ZOO, TO SEE SOME WEIRD,

EXOTIC ANIMALS THAT YOU

HEARD ABOUT OR READ IN

BOOKS, BUT YOU'VE NEVER SEEN

IN REAL LIFE.

Terry: SEE WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN THIS YOUNG MAN

TRIES TO WALK OUT OF

CHURCH.

THAT'S COMING UP.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB".

PEOPLE OF FAITH ARE MORE

LIKELY TO GIVE MONEY TO

CHARITABLE CAUSES THAN

NON-BELIEVERS.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO A NEW

STUDY COMMISSIONED BY THE

B.B.C.

IT SHOWS ALMOST 80% OF

BRITISH CITIZENS WITH

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS DONATED

MONEY IN THE LAST MONTH.

THAT INCLUDES 82% OF JEWS

AND 78% OF CHRISTIANS.

ONLY ABOUT TWO-THIRDS OF

NON-BELIEVERS HAVE GIVEN

MONEY.

AN ATHEIST, OR BORN-AGAIN

CHRISTIAN, WHICH ONE WOULD

YOU LIKE IN THE FAMILY?

MORE AMERICANS WOULD PREFER

A BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN MARRY

INTO THEIR FAMILY THAN AN

ATHEIST.

THAT'S THE FINDING FROM A

NEW POLE BY THE PEW RESEARCH

CENTER.

THEY SURVEYED AMERICANS WITH

A WIDE RANGE OF VIEWS.

ABOUT ONE-THIRD SAY THEY

WOULD BE HAPPY IF AN

IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBER

MARRIED A BORN AGAIN

CHRISTIAN.

BUT NEARLY HALF SAY THEY

WOULD BE UNHAPPY IF A FAMILY

MEMBER MARRIED SOMEONE WHO

SAYS THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN

GOD.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: IN FRANCE, 30%

OF THE PEOPLE DON'T BELIEVE

IN GOD.

GION WAS ONE OF THEM.

SO WHEN HE FINALLY SET FOOT

IN A CHURCH, HE NEVER

IMAGINED THAT IT WOULD

RADICALLY CHANGE HIS LIFE.

NOBODY REALLY SPENDS MUCH

TIME THINKING ABOUT THE

ISSUES.

AND THEN YOU DIE.

I WASN'I WAS PURSUING MY

HAPPINESS IN MY LIFE, AND I

ENDED UP PLAYING IN A BAND

AND PLAYED VOLLEYBALL,

TRAVELLING THE COUNTRY.

PART OF THE FRENCH IDEAL AT

MY AGE WAS TO HAVE FEMININE

CONQUESTS, AND I NEVER

REALLY FELT GUILTY BY MUCH.

I TRAVELLED ON VACATION TO A

TROPICAL ISLAND, ST.

MAARTEN.

AND I SAW TWO TOURISTS, LOST

FROM THE AIRPORT.

SO WE STARTED TALKING, AND I

QUICKLY FOUND OUT THAT THE

ONE THAT I WAS INTERESTED

IN, WHO LIVED IN NEW YORK,

TOLD ME SHE WAS A

CHRISTIAN.

WE STARTED DATING.

AND I CAME BACK TO FRANCE.

SHE FLEW BACK TO NEW YORK,

AND HERE WE WERE IN A

LONG-DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP.

SO I JUST NEEDED TO CONVINCE

HER OUT OF HER STUPID

BELIEFS ABOUT GOD.

SO THAT WE COULD BE HAPPY

TOGETHER.

BUT IF I WAS GOING TO

CRITICIZE CHRISTIANITY, I

NEEDED TO KNOW WHAT IT

ACTUALLY CLAIMS.

SO I PICKED UP THE BIBLE AND

I STARTED TO READ THE NEW

TESTAMENT.

I FIGURED IF ANY OF THIS IS

TRUE, IT MEANS THAT THERE IS

A GOD CURRENTLY WHO IS

LOOKING DOWN ON US, AND HE

IS PRESUMABLY INTERESTED IN

MY PROJECT.

SO I'M GOING TO PRAY AND ASK

HIM TO SHOW HIMSELF TO ME.

NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN,

AND WE'LL BE DONE.

SO I STARTED TO PRAY.

ALL RIGHT, GOD, I'M HERE.

I'M LOOKING INTO THIS

CHRISTIANITY THING.

IF YOU'RE REAL, WHY DON'T

YOU GO AHEAD AND REVEAL

YOURSELF TO ME.

NOW, A COUPLE OF WEEKS AFTER

I PRAYED THAT PRAYER, MY

SOLDIER, FOR THE SPIKING

ARM, JUST STARTED TO BURN.

HERE I WAS OFF OF THE

VOLLEYBALL COURTS FOR A

WINDOW OF A COUPLE OF

WEEKS.

I FIGURED, SINCE I'VE BEEN

INVESTIGATING THIS

CHRISTIANITY THING, I MIGHT

AS WELL SEE WHAT THOSE

CHRISTIANS DO WHEN THEY GET

TOGETHER.

I WALKED INTO THE CHURCH,

AND I WENT THERE REALLY THE

SAME WAY YOU WOULD GO TO THE

ZOO, YOU KNOW, TO SEE SOME

WEIRD, EXOTIC ANIMAL THAT

YOU HEARD ABOUT OR READ

ABOUT IN BOOKS, BUT YOU'VE

NEVER SEEN IN REAL LIFE.

AND THE PREACHER PREACHED A

MESSAGE, AND I DON'T

REMEMBER WHAT HE SAID, BUT I

FIGURED I HAVE SEEN ENOUGH

AND I NEED TO ESCAPE.

I LITERALLY HAD ONE FOOT OUT

THE DOOR AND I SENSE A

STRONG WAVE OF CHILLS GOING

THROUGH MY CHEST, AND

GRABBING ME BY THE THROAT,

AND I WAS FROZEN ON THE

DOORSTEP, WITH CHILLS ALL

AROUND.

I TOOK A SECOND.

I CLOSED THE DOOR IN FRONT

OF ME, TURNED AROUND, AND I

WALKED STRAIGHT TO THE HEAD

PASTOR AND I INTRODUCED

MYSELF.

AND I SAID, SO, YOU BELIEVE

IN GOD, HUH?

HE LOOKED AT ME, YES.

HOW DOES THAT WORK OUT?

AND HE SAYS, WELL, WE CAN

TALK ABOUT IT.

HE TOOK ME TO HIS OFFICE AND

WE STARTED TO TAWFNLGT

TALK.

AND HERE WAS A MAN WHO

CLEARLY WAS EDUCATED.

HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING

ABOUT.

HE WASN'T OUT OF HIS MIND.

HE WAS SMART AND METICULOUS,

AND HE BELIEVED THAT GOD

EXISTS AND JESUS WAS RAISED

FROM THE DEATH.

I JUST COULDN'T FATHOM IT.

OVER THE COURSE OF SEVERAL

MONTHS AFTER THAT, WE WOULD

JUST MEET TOGETHER.

I WOULD COME AND BOMBARD HIM

WITH QUESTIONS, AND HE WOULD

PATIENTLY WALK ME THROUGH

THIS.

MY PRAYER AS AN UNBELIEVER

STARTED TO SHIFT A LITTLE

BIT TO, OKAY, WELL, GOD, IF

REALLY YOU'RE THERE NOW,

THIS STARTS TO MAKE SENSE TO

ME, THEN YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO REVEAL YOURSELF MORE

DIRECTLY SO I'M REALLY

COMFORTABLE IN AND YOU

CATCHING ME AND NOT MAKING A

FOOL OUT OF MYSELF.

HE REACTIVATED MY

CONSCIENCE.

I BASICALLY CHEATED ON THIS

GIRL A NUMBER OF TIMES.

SO THAT WAS ALL PILING UP

AND VERY, VERY WRONG.

AND IT ACCUMULATED.

AND ONE DAY WHEN I WAS IN MY

APARTMENT, JUST BY MYSELF

AND THINKING ABOUT THOSE

THINGS I HAD DONE, THE

THOUGHTS JUST WOULDN'T GO

AWAY.

AND I WAS IN PHYSICAL PAIN

FROM ALL OF THE GUILT WAS

ASSOCIATING WITH THIS.

THE GOSPEL FINALLY CLICKED

IN THAT PLACE WHERE I

REALIZED THAT IS WHY JESUS

DIED ON THE CROSS.

IT WAS VERIT WAS A VERY

PERSONAL THING.

HE DIED TO PAY THE PRICE FOR

MY SIN.

I CRIED OUT TO GOD.

I SAID, I GET IT.

I'M ALL IN.

MY HEART WAS INSTANTLY SET

FREE.

EVERY TRACE OF GUILT JUST

FLEW AWAY.

I THOUGHT AT THAT TIME,

MISTAKENLY, THAT GOD WANTED

ME TO MARRY THIS GIRL, NOW

THAT EVERYTHING WAS OUT IN

THE OPEN.

SHORTLY AFTER I MOVED TO NEW

YORK, I REALIZED THAT THIS

GIRL AND I WERE ABSOLUTELY

NOT MEANT FOR EACH OTHER.

I EVENTUALLY MET THE WOMAN

THAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO MARRY

THIS TIME.

A WONDERFUL AMERICAN WOMAN.

I'VE GOT TWO BEAUTIFUL

BABIES.

AND LIFE HAS JUST TURNED OUT

SO MUCH BETTER THAN I HAD

EVER HOPED IT WOULD BE WHEN

I MOVED HE.

HE HAS GIVEN ME MUCH MORE TO

BE SATISFIED ABOUT.

I WASN'T SEEKING FOR GOD.

I HATEDED GOD AND I HATED

RELIGION.

AND GOD, IN HIS GRACE, WENT

TO ALL OF THESE LENGTHS TO

BRING THE GOSPEL TO ME, TO

CHANGE MY HEART AND BREAK

DOWN ALL OF MY DEFENCES AND

MAKE ME EMBRACE THE GOSPEL.

ANY PERSON CAN BE REACHED

AND CAN BE CONVERTED BECAUSE

GOD BREAKS DOWN OUR

BARRIERS.

Terry: GION WASN'T

SEEKING FOR GOD, BUT GOD WAS

SEEKING GION.

YOU KNOW, IN ALMOST ALL

RELIGIONSC RELIGIONS OF THE

WORLD, PEOPLE ARE

SACRIFICING AND REACHING UP

AND TRYING TO PLEASE GODS

THAT ARE UNTOUCHABLE,

UNREACHABLE, UNPLEASEABLE.

BUT IN OUR FAITH, THE GOD OF

THE UNIVERSE, WHO CREATELIED

AL CREATED ALL THAT IS, WHO

KNEW YOU BEFORE YOU WERE

FORMED IN YOUR MOTHER'S

WOMB, REACHES DOWN TO YOU.

GION CRIED OUT AND SAID,

GOD, IF YOU'RE REAL, YOU

HAVE TO REVEAL YOURSELF TO

ME.

LISTEN, IT'S GOD'S GOOD

PLEASURE TO REVEAL HIMSELF

TO YOU.

YOU WERE CREATED WITH

DESTINY AND PURPOSE IN MIND,

WITH ETERNITY IN YOUR

HEART.

WE WERE CREATED TO WALK

WITH, TO BE WITH, TO TALK

WITH, TO LOVE AND TO KNOW

OUR GOD.

HE ALREADY KNOWS ALL OF THAT

ABOUT YOU.

HE KNOWS THE THINGS THAT

YOU'VE DONE THAT YOU

SHOULDN'T HAVE.

HE KNOWS THE THINGS THAT YOU

HAVE DONE THAT HARMED OTHER

PEOPLE.

HARMED YOURSELF.

POOR DECISIONS, THOUGHTLESS

DECISIONS.

AND YET HE LOVES US.

YOU SEE, THAT'S WHY JESUS

CAME.

IT WASN'T JUST BECAUSE HE

DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO

DO FOR THOSE 33 YEARS THAT

HE VISITED US HERE.

IT WAS BECAUSE HE LOVED US

ENOUGH TO WALK AWAY FROM THE

PERFECTION THAT WAS HIS.

IN ANOTHER REALM, IN HEAVEN,

SO THAT HE COULD COME DOWN

HERE AND SHOW US THE WAY IT

IS SUPPOSED TO BE DONE.

SO HE COULD SET US FREE BY

BECOMING THE SACRIFICE FOR

OUR WRONG-DOING.

YOU KNOW, WHEN WRONG IS

DONE, A PRICE HAS TO BE

PAID.

EVERY CHOICE THAT WE MAKE

HAS A CONSEQUENCE TO IT.

JESUS TOOK OUR CONSEQUENCE

UPON HIM, AND THEN TURNED

AROUND, IN HIS RESURRECTION,

AND SAID, I SET YOU FREE.

I SET YOU FREE.

IT IS FINISHED.

THE QUESTION IS: WILL YOU

RECEIVE IT TODAY?

YOU SEE, GOD IS A

GENTLEMAN.

HE DOESN'T COME IN AND FORCE

US OR MAKE US DO ANYTHING.

HE FORGIVES US.

HE LOVES US.

AND THEN HE HOLDS OUT HIS

HANDS AND HE SAYS, LET ME

HELP YOU.

LET ME LIVE IN YOU.

LET ME SHOW YOU HOW TO DO

THIS.

AND THE INVITATION COMES

WITH AN RSVP.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO

WITH THAT INVITATION TODAY?

GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH.

MORE THAN YOU LOVE

YOURSELF.

THERE ARE SOME OF YOU OUT

THERE TODAY WHO ARE JUST --

YOU HATE YOURSELF.

UNDERSTAND WHO YOU ARE, MADE

IN THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF

GOD.

TODAY SAY YES.

DO WHAT GION DID.

SAY, GOD, I WANT TO KNOW

YOU.

I'M OPENING UP MY HEART TO

ALL THAT YOU WANT TO GIVE

ME.

WILL YOU COME IN TODAY?

WILL YOU SHOW ME WHO YOU

ARE?

WILL YOU EVEN FORGIVE MY

SINS, FOR THEY ARE GREAT AND

MANY?

I CAN TELL YOU THE ANSWER TO

THAT IS YES.

YES.

AND THEN ASK HIM TO FILL YOU

WITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT.

YOU SEE, THAT'S THE GIFT

THAT WAS LEFT TO US.

WHEN JESUS LEFT HERE AND

RETURNED, HE SAID, I'M GOING

SO THAT I CAN SEND YOU THE

COMFORTER, SO I CAN SEND YOU

THE ONE THAT IS GOING TO

LIVE IN YOU, TEACH YOU, TALK

TO YOU.

IT'S FREE.

FREE FOR THE ASKING.

HARD TO BELIEVE, ISN'T IT?

BUT IT'S TRUE.

LISTEN, IF YOU'D LIKE TO

PRAY WITH SOMEONE TODAY, WE

HAVE PEOPLE STANDING BY,

PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME,

WHO HAVE COME TO THE

UNDERSTANDING OF WHO GOD IS,

PRAYED THAT PRAYER, AND

THEY'RE HERE TODAY TO TALK

TO YOU.

NO JUDGMENT.

JUST CALL.

THERE IS THE TOLL-FREE

NUMBER, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I NEED

PRAYER TODAY.

AND, BY THE WAY, WE'VE GOT

SOMETHING SPECIAL WE WANT TO

SEND OUT YOUR WAY WHEN YOU

DO CALL AND DO THAT.

SEE THAT LITTLE PACKET,

"IT'S A NEW DAY."

AND THERE IS A D.V.D. IN

THERE, AND ALL KINDS OF

INFORMATION IN THERE,

WONDERFUL INFORMATION.

ONCE YOU'VE PRAYED THIS

PRAY, WHAT DO YOU DO?

HOW DO YOU LIVE?

IT'S YOURS.

JUST CALL AND ASK FOR IT

RIGHT NOW.

PAT?

Pat: THANKS, TERRY.

UP NEXT, WE'LL ANSWER YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

MICHAEL WANTS TO

KNOW, QUOTE,"WHEN YOU GIVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE ON

HEALING, CAN A TV VIEWER

CLAIM THAT HEALING FOR

SOMEONE THEY KNOW WHO HAS

THE SAME AILMENT?"

WE'LL "BRING IT ON" WITH

MICHAEL'S QUESTION AND A

NUMBER MORE YOU HAVE SENT IN

ON THE INTERNET RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: WELL, VIEWERS

ARE RAVING ABOUT THE

"AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE."

AND NOW YOU CAN TRY YOUR

HAND AS A CONTESTANT.

HERE IS A QUESTION FROM

TONIGHT'S PROGRAM.

WHO ASKED JESUS TO REMEDY

THE WINE SHORTAGE AT THE

WEDDING IN CAYNA.

WAS IT MOAB.

MARY?

MARTHA?

OR MISS MANNERS?

Terry: YOU CAN GET THE

ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION AND

MORE DURING TONIGHT'S

PROGRAM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TUNE

INTO THE GAME SHOW NETWORK.

THAT'S 8:00, 7:00 CENTRAL.

SEE IF YOU CAN ANSWER THAT

QUESTION POSITIVELY, WE

HOPE.

TIME FOR SM SOME E-MAIL.

THIS IS MICHAEL, AND HE

SAYS, "PAT, WHEN YOU OR

TERRY GIVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, CAN A TV VIEWER

CLAIM THAT FOR SOMEONE THEY

KNOW WHO HAS THE SAME

AILMENT?"

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW GOD

DOES WHAT HE DOES.

IT IS A MYSTERY FOR ALL OF

US.

YOU CAN CLAIM IT FOR MARY OR

SUZY.

Terry: HOW MANY TIMES

HAVE WE HAD IT FROM A MOM

WHO HAS SHEARE HEARD A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE FOR A CHILD.

Pat: WE'LL HAVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE, AND SOMETHING

IS UNFOLDING AS THE TAPE IS

ROLLING AND IT BECOMES THE

ANSWER.

GOD LIVES IN A SPACE TIME

CONTINUEIUM AND WE FIGURE

OUT.

Terry: A VIEWER

SAYS, "CAN YOU GET INTO

HEAVEN WITHOUT BEING

BAPTIZED, IS IT LEGITIMATE

FOR A MAN TO BAPTIZE HIMSELF

IF THEY WANT TO?"

Pat: REMEMBER THAT SHOW

WHERE THE APOSTLE BAPTIZED

HIMSELF.

I DON'T SEE THAT BAPTISM IS

NECESSARY FOR SALVATION.

THERE ARE SOME WHO BELIEVE

THAT.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID I'M

VERY GRATEFUL.

I DIDN'T BAPTIZE MANY.

GOD SENT ME TO PREACH THE

GOSPEL.

IT IS THE PREACHING OF THE

GOSPEL THAT BRINGS PEOPLE TO

JESUS.

THERE ARE SOME WHO BELIEVE

IN BAPTISMAL REGENERATION,

AND I'M NOT GOING TO

CRITICIZE THEIR VIEW.

BUT I DON'T THINK IT IS

NECESSARY FOR SALVATION.

IT IS THE COMPLETION OF WHAT

YOU'VE DOPE DONE, AND IT IS

THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT

YOU'RE DEAD WITH CHRIST AND

BURIED WITH HIM AND RAISED

WITH HIM.

Terry: DAVID SAYS, "MY

PARTNER AND I OF MANY YEARS

ADOPTED TWO GIRLS FROM CHINA

AND THEY KNOW ME AS THEY'RE

FATHER.

WE SEPARATED, AND NOW SHE

WANTS TO GET BACK TOGETHER,

BUT SHE IS NOT A CHRISTIAN.

WE ARE NOT EQUALLY YOLKED,

BUT WE BOTH LOVE THE GIRLS.

COULD SHE BE THE,

QUOTE,"WIFE OF MY YOUTH?"

Pat: NO, SHE SHOULDN'T

BE.

YOU'VE ALREADY EXPLAINED WHY

YOU SHOULDN'T DO IT.

THERE IS NOTHING

SCRIPTURALLY THAT SAYS NO,

BUT IN TERMS OF SMART, IT

WOULDN'T BE SMART.

YOU SHOULDN'T.

YOU CAN HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH THOSE CHILDREN WITHOUT

GETTING MARRIED TO THE

LADY.

Terry: HOLLY SAYS,

"I'VE BEEN TOLD I HAVE

DEPRESSION AND NEED TO BE ON

MEDICATION.

DO YOU THINK IT IS POSSIBLE

TO OVERCOME DEPRESSION

WITHOUT MEDICATION?"

Pat: DIET, DOING AWAY

WITH SWEETS.

EATING IMPORTANT VITAMINS,

ESPECIALLY B-1212 AND

THINGS LIKE THAT.

AND A LOT OF EXERCISE.

THERE ARE SOME TIMES THAT

MEDICATION IS ABSOLUTELY

ESSENTIAL FOR SOMEBODY WHO

HAS DEEP DEPRESSION.

I HAVEN'T GOT TIME IN 30

SECONDS TO GO INTO ALL OF

THE PHYSIOLOGICAL

RAMIFICATIONS.

IT IS A TERRIBLE THING.

BUT THE ANSWER IS YOU CAN

CERTAINLY OVERCOME IT

WITHOUT TAKING MEDICATION IN

MOST CASES.

BUT THE MEDICATION OFTEN

HELPS.

SO YOU ASK ME, CAN YOU DO

IT?

THE ANSWER IS, YES, YOU CAN

DO IT.

BUT THE MEDICATION IS GOOD.

DIET, EXERCISE, AND FRESH

AIR AND SUNSHINE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PROVERBS:

"LET YOUR HEART KEEP MY

COMMANDS FOR LENGTH OF DAYS,

LONG LIFE, AND PEACE, AND

THEY WILL ADD TO YOU."
