Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece Alveda King shares the importance of placing God at the center of our lives. Plus, Johnny got curious about God while serving time for gang crimes. Read Transcript


PRISONERS IN THEIR OWN

BODY.

I HAVE, YOU KNOW,

PROBLEMS DOING THE SIMPLEST

THINGS.

Wendy: AND THE

REVOLUTIONARY SURGERY THAT

IS SETTING PARKINSON'S

PATIENTS FREE.

NOW I'M ABLE TO

FUNCTION.

Wendy: PLUS, THE RULES

OF LIFE FROM MARTIN LUTHER

KING'S NIECE.

AND LITTLE BY LITTLE IT

JUST BLEW UP.

THERE IS NO TIME TO SLOW

DOWN.

I WANT TO MAKE THIS.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

TERRY IS HERE WITH ME.

I WANT TO ASK YOU A

QUESTION.

IF A THIEF CAME AND SAID, I

WANT $15,000 OF YOUR MONEY,

GIVE IT TO ME OR I WILL

ARREST YOU, WHAT WOULD YOU

DO?

Terry: WELL, I'D HAVE A

HARD TIME FINDING THAT

CASH.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: WOULD YOU BELIEVE

THAT THERE ARE THIEVES AT

WORK TAKING YOUR MONEY, AND

THE COST TO OUR NATION, $

$1.9 TRILLION.

WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT

THE THIEF IS, WHO THE

THIEVES ARE, AND WHERE THEY

ARE LOCATED.

Terry: WELL, IT'S

TAXES, TAXES, TAXES.

CRITICS SAY THE GOVERNMENT

REGULATIONS ARE BECOMING SO

BURDENSOME THEY'RE SLOWING

DOWN THE ECONOMY.

PAUL STRAND HAS A LOOK AT

HOW MUCH THEY COST.

YOU ARE NOT WORTHY TO

RECEIVE THESE 10

COMMANDMENTS.

Reporter: THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT OBVIOUSLY THINKS

WE NEED A LOT MORE.

LEADING WAYNE CRUZ TO CALL

THE LATEST REPORT 10,000

COMMANDMENTS.

AND NOW WE'VE HAD 88,000

REGULATIONS JUST IN THE PAST

DECADE.

Reporter: CRUZ

DOCUMENTS ALL OF THIS FROM

HIS COMMISSION AT THE

COMPETITIVE ENTERPRISE

INSTITUTE.

HE SAYS THERE ARE MORE

FEDERAL REGULATIONS ON THE

BOOKS THAN MOST HUMANS COULD

EVER READ.

THE FEDERAL REGISTRY LAST

YEAR WAS 79,000 PAGES OF

RULES.

Reporter: CRUZ SAYS

LOOKS AT HOW OBAMACARE'S

DICTATES ARE ALREADY

AFFECTING BUSINESSES.

IT HAS BEEN ALL OVER THE

NEWS ABOUT OBAMACARE AND HOW

COMPANIES ARE EITHER

DOWNSIZING, JOB FORMATION

RATES ARE MUCH LOWER.

COMPANIES ARE PUTTING THEIR

EMPLOYEES ON PART-TIME BASIS

RATHER THAN FULL-TIME.

REGULATION IS A HEAVY ROAD.

Reporter: CRUZ FIGURES

FEDERAL REGULATIONS COST THE

ECONOMY A WHOPPING

$1.9 TRILLION A YEAR, AN

EIGHTH OF THE COUNTRY'S

G.D.P.

AND IT COSTS YOUR HOUSEHOLD

ALMOST $15,000 A YEAR.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE

AVERAGE FAMILY INCOME OF

ABOUT $65,000, IN THAT

NEIGHBORHOOD, IT IS AROUND

23%.

IT IS THE BIGGEST ITEM IN

THE FAMILY BUDGET, IF YOU

THINK OF IT THAT WAY, EXCEPT

FOR HOUSING.

IT IS BIGGER THAN

ENTERTAINMENT, FOOD,

EVERYTHING ELSE.

Reporter: DON'T BLAME

CONGRESS, THEY'RE TWO

GRID:00 T GRIDLOCKED TO DO

SOME CORRECTIONS.

LAST YEAR THERE WERE 51

REGULATIONS FOR EVERY LAW

PASSED BY CONGRESS.

Reporter: AND CRUZ THE

VERY MOST EXPENSIVE KIND,

WHAT ARE CALLED ECONOMICALLY

SIGNIFICANT RULES, ARE

GROWING ESPECIALLY FAST.

191 LAST YEAR.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN A

LITTLE BIT OF MONEY.

AN ECONOMIC SIGNIFICANT

RESIGNATION IS ONE THAT IS

DESIG NATEE DESIGNATED TO

COST $100 MILLION A YEAR.

Reporter: IS IT WORTH

THE LOST JOBS, LOST GROWTH,

AND THE NEARLY $2 MILLION

THEY SHAVE OFF THE ECONOMY

EACH YEAR.

BUT CRUZ WARNS AS IT TAKES

MORE AND MORE CONTROL OF

AMERICAN'S LIVES MAY BE IN

SOMETHING WE NEVER MEASURE.

ONE THING WE NEVER

MEASURE IS OUR LIBERTY.

WHAT IS THE COST OF LOSING

OR LIBERTY.

Pat: YOU HIRE SOMEBODY

AND HE SAYS YOU'RE A

REGULATOR.

AND HE SAYS, I'VE GOT TO

REGULAR SOMETHING.

AND HE CAN WRITE UP A LAW

AND HE CAN SAY, THIS IS MY

SIGNATURE LAW.

I THINK THE NEXT PRESIDENT

SHOULD SAY THEY'LL AUR

THEY'RE ALL CANCELLED, AND

START ALL OVER AGAIN.

IT IS AN UNCONSCIONABLE

DRAIN ON OUR ECONOMY.

SOMETHING I READ THE OTHER

DAY IS KIND OF CUTE.

DID YOUR GRANDMOTHER OR

ANYBODY HAVE ONE OF THOSE

LITTLE AMULATE THINGS, WITH

THE LITTLE IVORY -- THE

LITTLE PIECE OF JEWELRY WITH

IVORY IN IT?

Terry: YOU MEAN LIKE A

LITTLE BROACH?

Pat: YEAH.

Terry: UH-HUH.

Pat: THAT'S ILLEGAL.

Terry: BUT IF IT IS

OLD, IT'S OKAY.

Pat: YOU HAVE TO HAVE A

CERTIFICATE SHOWING GRANDMA

PURCHASED IT --

Terry: NO, NO, MY

GRANDMA DID NOT HAVE ONE OF

THOSE.

DIDN'T PIANO KEYBOARDS USED

TO BE MADE OUT OF IVORY A

FEW YEARS AGO?

Pat: OF COURSE.

THEY STILL ARE.

IT'S INSANITY.

THIS IS THE FISH AND GAME

ADMINISTRATION OR FOOD AND

DRUG ADMINISTRATION -- ONE

OF THOSE GROUPS YOU DON'T

KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PUT THAT

RULE INTO EFFECT.

THAT ALL OF THE IVORY, ALL

AROUND, EVERYWHERE.

THAT IS CRAZY.

THAT WILL STOP EVIL POACHERS

FROM COMING FROM KENYA INTO

UGANDA AND KILLING

ELEPHANTS?

NOT A CHANCE.

Terry: IF YOU GET TO

THE NUMBER OF WHAT EXISTS,

THE ONLY WAY TO DO IT IS

ALMOST TO ABOLISH IT ALL AND

START ALL OVER.

Pat: A PRESIDENT COULD

DO THAT.

I CANCEL ALL EXECUTIVE,

NON-CONGRESSIONAL REGULATION

THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN

EFFECT.

PERIOD.

THEY'RE ALL GONE, AND START

FROM SCRATCH.

IT WOULD BE THE GREATEST

LIBERATING THING KNOWN TO

MAN.

Terry: AND SAVE US SOME

MONEY, IT SEEMS.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THEY'RE LIKE TERM

MATE TERMITES THAT ARE

FEEDING ON -- THEY GET PAID

FOR THAT STUFF.

TERMITES EAT YOUR HOUSE.

THEY LIVE OFF YOUR HOUSE

WHILE THEY'RE DESTROYING

IT.

THESE TERMITES LIVE OFF OUR

HOUSE WHILE THEY ARE

DESTROYING IT.

AND THEY ARE NOT HELPFUL.

THEY CALL THEMSELVES PUBLIC

SERVICE.

THEY'RE FEEDING ON THE

POPULATION, YOU AND ME, ON

THE PRODUCTIVE SECTOR.

WELL, IN OTHER NEWS, THAT

WONDERFUL WOMAN, THAT

CHRISTIAN MOTHER, WHO HAS

BEEN SENTENCED TO DEATH IN

THE SUDAN ONCE AGAIN HAS

BEEN ARRESTED.

THEY DON'T WANT TO LET HER

GO.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

27-YEAR-OLD MERIAM IBRAHIM

IS NOW ACCUSED OF FORGING

HER PASSPORT.

THE PASSPORT WAS ISSUED BY

THE EMBASSY OF SOUTH SUDAN,

AND HER ATTORNEY SAYS THE

EMBASSY HAS ASSURED

AUTHORITIES THAT THE

PASSPORT IS LEGITIMATE.

BUT SHE COULD FACE UP TO

SEVEN YEARS ON THE LATEST

CHARGES.

SHE HAD BEEN SENTENCED TO

DEATH FOR MARRYING A

CHRISTIAN AND ABANDONING HER

MUSLIM FAITH.

U.S. OFFICIALS ARE TRYING TO

RESOLVE THE CASE SO THE

FAMILY CAN LEAVE THE

COUNTRY, BUT SOME CRITICS

SAY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT

HAVEN'T DONE ENOUGH TO HELP

IBRAHIM AND HER FAMILY.

JOHN BOEHNER IS CONSIDERING

A LAWSUIT AGAINST PRESIDENT

OBAMA, ACCUSING HIM OF

IGNORING THE LAW AND SIMPLY

ACTING ON HIS OWN.

BOEHNER SAYS OBAMA IS BY

PASSING CONGRESS ON CERTAIN

POLICIES, AND HE SAYS THE

PRESIDENT IS MISUSING HIS

EXECUTIVE POWERS AND

EXERTING A, QUOTE,"KING-LIKE

AUTHORITY."

THE CONSTITUTION MAKES IT

CLEAR THAT THE PRESIDENT'S

JOB IS TO FAITHFULLY EXECUTE

THE LAWS.

IN MY VIEW, THE PRESIDENT

HAS NOT FAITHFULLY EXECUTED

THE LAWS.

Reporter: WHITE HOUSE

SPOKESMAN DISAGREES WITH

BOEHNER AND DOESN'T THINK

THE AMERICANS WILL SUPPORT

IT.

Pat: IT DOESN'T MATTER

WHAT THE AMERICANS SUPPORT.

IT WILL BE BROUGHT INTO

COURT.

WE OUGHT TO SUPPORT JOHN

BAIJOHN BOEHNER ON THIS.

IT IS LONG OVERDUE.

THE OVERREACH OF THIS

PRESIDENCY IS APPALLING,

ABSOLUTELY APPALLING.

THEY'RE RUNNING ALL OVER US,

AND IT IS SOMEBODY STOPPED

HIM.

SUPPORT BOEHNER, PRAY FOR

HIM.

SEND HIM LETTERS OF THE

SUPPORT.

CHARLENE?

Reporter: CONGRESSIONAL

INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY HAVE

FOUND E-MAILS SHOW LOIS

LERNER ONCE SUGGESTED A

POSSIBLE AUDIT OF REPUBLICAN

SENATOR CHARLES GRASSLEY.

SHE GOT AN INVITATION BY

MISTAKE THAT MEANT FOR

GRASSLEY.

> THE EVENT OFFERED TO PAY

FOR HIS WIFE TO ATTEND, AND

SHE SUGGESTED THAT IT MIGHT

NOT BE RIGHT FOR THEM TO PAY

FOR THE SENATOR'S WIFE.

SO SHE ASKED FOR AN AUDIT.

BUT ANOTHER I.R.S. OFFICIAL

SAID NO.

GRASSLEY SAYS THE INCIDENT

SHOWS WHY PEOPLE ARE WORRIED

ABOUT POLITICAL TARGETING BY

I.R.S. OFFICIALS.

PAT?

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU, YOU

TALK ABOUT INCOMPETENT,

DEVIOUS, AND NOW STUPID.

THAT IS STUPID.

STUPID IS FOREVER, AND SHE

ACTUALLY TARGETED CHUCK

SCHUMER ON THE OTHER SIDE.

BUT CHUCK GRASSLEY -- HE

COULD RUN FOR POPE.

THE PEOPLE JUST LOVE HIM.

THE MAN IS SQUEAKY CLEAN.

HE DIDN'T EVEN GO TO THAT

EVENT.

HE DIDN'T TAKE HIS WIFE TO

THE EVENT.

BUT MAYBE WE SHOULD AUDIT

ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL

SENATORS?

IS SHE CRAZY?

WELL, WE'LL FIND OUT SOONER

OR LATER AND GET A SPECIAL

PROSECUTOR.

SHE NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL.

CHARLENE?

Reporter: POLICE CAN NO

LONGER SEARCH THE

INFORMATION ON YOUR CELL

PHONES WITHOUT A WARRANT.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO A

UNANIMOUS RULING WEDNESDAY

BY THE SUPREME COURT.

CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS ON THE

HISTORIC CASE.

Reporter: IT'S A BOLD

RULING FOR A DIGITAL AGE.

A UNANIMOUS SUPREME COURT

RULED THAT PRIVACY RIGHTS

APPLY TO 21st CENTURY

TECHNOLOGY, SPECIFICALLY

CELL PHONES.

MODERN CELL PHONES HOLD FOR

MANY AMERICANS THE PRIVACIES

OF LIFE, WROTE A CHIEF

JUSTICE.

THE FACT THAT TECHNOLOGY NOW

ALLOWS AN INDIVIDUAL TO

CARRY SUCH INFORMATION IN

HIS HAND DOES NOT MAKE THE

INFORMATION ANY LESS WORTHY

OF THE PROTECTION FOR WHICH

THE FOUNDERS FOUGHT.

THIS OPINION DISMISSES THE

GOVERNMENT'S ARGUMENT THAT

THERE IS NO LEGAL

DISTINCTION BETWEEN A SMART

PHONE OR OTHER EVIDENCE LIKE

A WALLET OR ADDRESS BOOK

THAT COULD BE FOUND ON A

SUSPECT DURING AN ARREST.

IT IS A HUGE VICTORY FOR

ANYONE WHO VALUES PRIVACY.

Reporter: JUSTICE

ROBERTS SAID THAT DIGITAL

INFORMATION CAN'T HURT AN

OFFICER, AND POLICE MAY

STILL TAKE THE CELL PHONE.

THEY JUST CAN'T LOOK AT

WHAT'S ON IT ISN'T THEY

UNTIL THEY HAVE A WARRANT.

STILL, PRIVACY COMES AT A

COST.?

AND SOME INVESTIGATIONS WILL

BE DISRUPTED OR SLOWED

DOWN.

THE NEW RULING HAS NO IMPACT

ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY

AGENCY'S DATA COLLECTION

PROGRAM.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: GENERAL MILLS

IS DROPPING ASPERTANE FROM

IT'S YOGURT.

IT IS BETTER KNOWN AS

NUTRISWEET.

AND IT IS REPLACING IT WITH

SUCRALOS.

THEY CONSIDERED ALTERNATIVES

AFTER HEARING FROM CONSUMERS

THAT THEY WANTED A PRODUCT

THAT DID NOT CONTAIN

ASPERTANE.

THE F.D.A. SAYS ASPERTANE

HAS BEEN EXTENSIVELY

STUDIED, BUT OTHER GROUPS

HAVE RAISED QUESTIONS ABOUT

ITS SAFETY.

PAT?

Pat: I WILL IMMEDIATELY

GO OUT AND BUY A CARTON OF

YOPLAIT LIGHT.

Terry: CAN I WATCH?

Pat: WE'VE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT ASPERTANE.

IT TAKES YOUR MIND AWAI

AWAY.

IT REMOVES YOUR I.Q. BY A

NUMBER OF POINTS.

AND WE HAVE REPORTS OF

PILOTS WHO HAD A HARD TIME

AFTER DRINKING ASPERTANE.

IT IS POISON.

IT IS THE SAME SUBSTANCE IN

MOON-SHINE LIQUOR.

IT IS BAD FOR YOU.

AND THANK GOODNESS THAT ONE

COMPANY FINALLY ACKNOWLEDGED

IT.

PEOPLE ARE SCREAMING ABOUT

IT.

SCREAM MORE.

IT IS IN A LITTLE BLUE

PACKET AND ITS IN

RESTAURANTS.

AND COMPLAIN.

SAY IF YOU'RE GOING TO SERVE

IT, I'M NOT GOING TO COME

BACK HERE.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD.

I THINK WE'VE BEEN SCREAMING

ABOUT IT FOR YEARS.

ONE COMPANY, YOPLAIT -- ARE

THEY FRENCH?

Terry: IT SOUNDS

FRENCH.

QUI.

Reporter: IF YOU WANT

TO CUT YOUR CHILDREN'S

CHANCES OF OBESITY, CUT OUT

THE SUGARY SODAS AT MEAL

TIME AND REPLACE IT

PARTICULAR WATER.

WITH WATER.

ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILDREN TO

DRINK WATER.

AND SPEAKING OF KEEPING KIDS

HEALTHY, THERE ARE MORE THAN

10,000 SUMMER CAMPS IN

AMERICA.

EVERYTHING FROM SOCCER CAMP

TO COMPUTER CAMP.

SO HOW DO YOU FIND THE ONE

THAT FITS YOUR CHILD THE

BEST.

ANGELA SHOWS US WHERE TO

LOOK FOR THE BEST CAMP

EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: SUMMERTIME IS

FINALLY HERE, WHICH MEANS IT

IS TIME FOR MANY PARENTS TO

PLAN SUMMER OPTIONS FOR

THEIR TEENAGERS.

AS THE SEASON ARRIVES, SO

DOES THE SUN, SWIMMING, AND

CAMPING IN THE GREAT

OUTDOORS.

GREG HUNTER HEADS UP THE

CHRISTIAN CAMP AND

CONFERENCE ASSOCIATION,

WHICH HAS HELPED SET UP AND

RUN CAMPS SINCE 1963.

THERE ARE SO MANY CAMPS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, AND 850

ARE PART OF OUR ASSOCIATION,

BUT THEY COME FROM ALL

DENOMINATIONS, JUST ABOUT

ANY KIND OF CAMP YOU CAN

IMAGINE, THEY'RE OUT THERE

FOR PARENTS AND KIDS LOOK

FORG A PLACE TO GO.

Reporter: TRIPLE "R"

RANCH OFFERS A VARIETY OF

THE ACTIVITIES.

I GOT TO SPEND THE DAY

CHECKING SOME OF THEM OUT.

WE HAVE A LOT OF OUTDOOR

ACTIVITIES, THE RIVER AND

CANOEING, AND THE ZIP LINES

AND TEEN BUILDING.

WE LIKE TO WORK WITH MISSION

GROUPS, AND GROUPS THAT ARE

GOING TO GET UP THERE AND

GET HIGH ON THE ZIP LINE AND

TRY THAT OUT.

HORSES ARE A BIG PART OF

TRIPLE "R."

WE'RE A WESTERN MOTIF TYPE

OF RANCH ON THE EAST COAST.

BUT WE'RE TRYING TO GET THE

KIDS OUT OF THEIR COMFORTER

ZONE.

Reporter: AND AFTER

SPENDING A DAY IN THE LIFE

OF A CAMPER, I COULD NOT

PASS UP THE VERTICAL

CHALLENGE TO CLIMB THE ROCK

WALL.

AND KIDS COULD USE THE

EXERCISE.

THOSE FROM AGE 10 TO 16

SPEND LESS THAN 13 MINUTES A

DAY IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.

COMPARED TO 10 HOURS SPENT

EACH DAY RELATIVELY

MOTIONLESS.

MUCH OF THAT IS DUE TO

TECHNOLOGY.

CAMP GETS THEM O OUT OF

THEIR NORMAL ENVIRONMENT AND

ALLOWS THEM TO FOCUS ON

THEIR FAITH WITHOUT

DISTRACTION.

THIS IS THE MOST

STIMULATED GENERATION IN THE

HISTORY OF EARTH.

WHEN A KID CAN UP PLUG FROM

THAT AND GO OUT INTO NATURE,

AND CAN LEAVE BEHIND THE

THINGS THAT PUT PRESSURE ON

THEM, THAT KIND OF BIND THEM

UP AND KEEP THEM RIGHT WHERE

THEY ARE.

Reporter: WITH MANY

OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM,

FAITH-BASED SUMMER CAMPS CAN

BE AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO HELP

YOUNG PEOPLE AWAKEN THEIR

FAITH, BUILD CHARACTER, AND

INSTILL MORAL VALUES.

ANGELA ZADAPEC, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: YOU CAN FIND

OUT ABOUT DIFFERENT CAMPS

AND RETREATS BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT, DID YOU EVER GO CAM

CAMPING WHEN YOU WERE A

KID?

Pat: SURE.

I WENT TO A CHRISTIAN CAMP,

A BAPTIST CAMP, AND IT WAS A

GREAT EXPERIENCE.

AND I WENT TO A CAMP WHERE

EVERY BOY HAD HIS OWN

HORSE.

AND WE WENT OUT ON MIDNIGHT

RIDES AND FOX HUNTS.

IT WAS GREAT.

IT WAS TREMENDOUS.

SO CAMPS ARE VERY GOOD.

BUT, BOY OH, BOY, YOU CAN

GET BEAT UP PRETTY BADLY.

THEY PUT SNAKES IN YOUR BED

AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

THAT'S PART OF CAMPING.

SPIDERS, SNAKES, RATS --

Terry: WHO WANTS TO

MISS THAT.

UP NEXT, IT MAY NOT BE A

CURE FOR PARKINSON'S, BUT IT

IS THE NEXT BEST THING.

AS SOON AS WE TURN ON THE

STIMULATOR, THEY SEE THEIR

HANDS STOP SHAKING.

AND THAT'S THE BEST FEELING

IN THE WORLD FOR THEM, AND

AS FOR ME AS A SURGEON.

Terry: WE'LL SHOW YOU A

MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE ALL

OF YOU WITH US.

I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING

THAT IS A BREAKTHROUGH FROM

THE CLEVELAND CLINIC.

WHAT IF YOU COULDN'T DO THE

THINGS YOU TAKE FOR

GRANTED?

LIKE GETTING OUT OF A CHAIR,

BUBUTTONING YOUR SHIRT OR

EVEN DRINKING A CUP OF

COFFEE.

FOR MORE THAN SEVEN MILLION

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD,

THOSE SIMPLE THINGS ARE

IMPOSSIBLE, BECAUSE OF

ILLNESSES LIKE PARKINSON'S

DISEASE.

MICHAEL J. FOX IS THE MOST

NOTABLE EXAMPLE OF IT.

Terry: HE HAS REALLY

BROUGHT THAT INTO LIGHT.

Pat: BUT HE HAS COME

BACK ON THE AIR.

BUT OUR LORI JOHNSON WENT TO

CLEVELAND CLINIC TO FIND A

NEW SURGERY THAT APPARENTLY

CAN HELP THESE PEOPLE GET

THEIR LIVES BACK.

HERE IS LORI.

Lori: EVEN THOUGH

NATHAN SUFFERS FROM

PARKINSON'SHE CANE,

CONTROL HISBODY THANKS TO A

PACEMAKER.

IT DOESN'T SEND ELECTRICAL

SIGNALS TO HIS HEART,

THOUGH.

THEY GO DIRECTLY TO THE PART

OF HIS BRAIN IN CHARGE OF

MOTION.

WE WANTED TO SEE HOW WELL IT

WORKS.

SO NATHAN TURNED IT OFF.

YOU CAN SEE ALMOST INSTANTLY

HE BEGINSTO SHAKE

UNCONTROLLABLY.

BEFORE NATHAN GOT HIS BRAIN

PACEMAKER, HE WAS LIKE MANY

PARKINSON'S PATIENTS, A

PRISONER IN HIS OWN BODY.

AS A MINISTER, NATHAN'S

VIOLENT TREMOURS PREVENTED

HIM AND HIS WIFE TO FULFILL

THEIR MISSION TO REACH

SPANISH-SPEAKING CITIZENS

AROUND OHIO.

NORMAL ACTIVITIES, LIKE

WALKING AND GETTING DRESSED,

WERE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE.

I HAD PROBLEMS DOING THE

SIMPLEST THING, LIKE

BRINGING MY WIFE A CUP OF

COFFEE.

MY HAND WOULD SHAKE SO MUCH,

THE COFFEE WOULD SPILL.

I COULDN'T REALLY EAT.

Reporter: NATHAN HEARD

ABOUT DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION

PERFORMED BY NEUROSURGEON

DARLEEN NOBEL.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO

UNDERSTAND THAT THE BRAIN

STIMULATION IS NOT A CURE

FOR PARKINSON'S DISEASE.

IT WILL TREAT THE SYMPTOMS.

IT TREATS TREMOUR VERY

WELL.

IT CONTROLS ABOUT 90% OF

TREMOUR, WHICH IS

IMPRESSIVE.

OR STIFFNESS AND SLOWNESS OF

MOVEMENT, IT CONTROLS ABOUT

70% TO 80% OF THOSE

SYMPTOMS.

THE EFFECT IS DURABLE, WHICH

MEANS IT LASTS OVER A NUMBER

OF YEARS.

Reporter: AND WHILE

THAT SOUNDED GREAT TO

NATHAN, HE DID NOT LIKE THE

IDEA OF STAYING AWAKE DURING

THE SURGERY.

I SAID, GOD, WHY DO I

HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS

OPERATION WHEN YOU CAN JUST

TOUCH ME AND HEAL ME.

Reporter: THE OPERATION

INVOLVED PLACING SENSORS IN

THE EXACT LOCATIONS OF THE

BRAIN THAT CONTROL MOTOR

FUNCTION.

PINPOINTING THOSE SPOTS,

MEANT NATHAN THAT TO FOLLOW

THE SURGEON'S COMMANDS WHILE

THE DOCTOR WORKED INSIDE HIS

BRAIN.

MOVE YOUR RIGHT HAND,

MOVE IT TO THE LEFT.

MOVE YOUR FINGERS.

MOVE YOUR HAND UP.

MOVE YOUR HAND DOWN.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH THE

IDEA OF BEING AWAKE DURING

BRAIN SURGERY SOUNDS

UNNERVING, DR. LOBEL SAYS AT

LEAST IT DOESN'T HURT.

THE SKIN HAS SENSATION

AND CAN FEEL PAIN.

BUT AS SOON AS WE PUT IN

LOCAL ANESTHETIC INTO THE

SKIN, THEY DON'T FEEL

ANYTHING ELSE FOR THE ENTIRE

PROCEDURE.

THERE IS NO PAIN ENDINGS IN

THE BRAIN, FOR EXAMPLE.

Reporter: NATHAN HAD TO

KEEP CALM.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT ELSE

TO THINK ABOUT.

I THOUGHT, I'VE GOT TO

CONCENTRATE ON SOMETHING.

SO I'M NOT CONCENTRATING ON

WHAT IS GOING ON BECAUSE I'M

SAYING, THIS IS TAKING A

LONG TIME.

BUT IT TOOK A LONG TIME.

AND SHE KEPT ON TALKING TO

ME TO TRY TO KEEP ME BUSY.

Reporter: THE SURGEON

STRETCHES A THIN WIRE FROM

THE BRAIN TO A GENERATOR

IMPLANTED NEAR THE

COLLARBONE.

WHEN IT IS ALL OVER, A

TEST.

AND THIS IS THE MOST

WONDERFUL PART OF THIS

SURGERY: PATIENTS ARE THERE

IN THE OPERATING ROOM, AND

WE WITHHELD THEIR

MEDICATIONS, SO THEIR

TREMOUR IS PRETTY SEVERE AT

THAT POINT.

AS SOON AS WE TURN ON THE

SIMULATOR, THEY SEE THEIR

HANDS STOP SHAKING, AND

THAT'S THE BEST FEELING IN

THE WORLD FOR THEM, AND FOR

ME AS A SURGEON.

Reporter: SINCE THERE

IS NO CURE FOR PARKINSON'S,

IT WILL CONTINUE TO ATTACK

NATHAN'S BODY.

BUT THANKS TO DEEP BRAIN

STIMULATION, HE CAN STAY ONE

STEP AHEAD OF THE SHAKING.

BECAUSE THE WAY I WAS I

COULDN'T FUNCTION.

BUT NOW I'M ABLE TO

FUNCTION, RUN A MINISTRY,

AND MY WIFE WHO IS AN

EVANGELIST, AND WE GO OUT

AND WE PREACH TO OTHER

CHURCHES.

AND WHY NOT USE THIS AS PART

OF MY TESTIMONY?

Reporter: LORI JOHNSON,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: MAN, THAT'S

WONDERFUL.

YOU KNOW, THEY HAD A DEAL

SOME YEARS AGO -- THIS

WASN'T NEW -- THAT THEY

WOULD GO DEEP INTO THE BRAIN

AND KILL SOME CELLS IN THERE

AT THE TIME AND THEY WOULD

TOUCH THESE THINGS AND JUST

DEAD TEDEADEN THEM, AND

THAT WOULD STOP SOME OF THE

SHAKING.

BUT THIS IS AN ONGOING

PROCEDURE.

I THINK IT IS WONDERFUL.

DR. LOBEL, CONGRATULATIONS.

CLEVELAND CLINIC IS AT THE

FOREFRONT OF MEDICAL

INNOVATION.

IT IS JUST A TREMENDOUS

HOSPITAL.

I MUST SAY THEY DID SOME

THINGS ON ME THAT DIDN'T

WORK, BUT WHO AM I TO

COMPLAIN?

TWICE I WAS THERE FOR HEART

THINGS AND IT DIDN'T WORK.

Terry: WELL, THAT'S

KIND OF AN UNPREDICTABLE

AREA.

Pat: I HAD A-FIB, AND I

FINALLY GOT A NICE LITTLE

GENTLEMAN WHO IS A CHRISTIAN

DOWN IN NORTH CAROLINA WHO

CAME UP WITH A MAZE

PROCEDURE COUPLED WITH OTHER

STUFF THAT SEEMS TO HAVE

DONE A GOOD JOB.

Terry: BUT YOU HEAR

GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE

CLEVELAND CLINIC, AND WHAT

SATISFACTION FOR THAT

SURGEON.

Pat: OH, MAN.

THAT WOULD JUST SET HIM

FREE.

Terry: HE CERTAINLY HAS

BROUGHT THE ATTENTION TO THE

NEED FOR RESEARCH.

Pat: I JUST ATTEND A

FUNERAL FOR A DEAR, DEAR

FRIEND OF OURS WHO HAD

PARKINSON'S FOR YEARS.

AND SHE GOT TO THE POINT

WHERE SHE COULDN'T SPEAK.

YOU COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT

SHE WAS SAYING.

SHE FINALLY PASSED ON, AND A

WONDERFUL CHRISTIAN PERSON.

Terry: IT IS A HORRIBLE

DISEASE.

Pat: PARKINSON'S IS

HORRIBLE.

LORI DIDN'T MENTION FOR

EXPLORATION INTO THIS

COCONUT OIL, AND THAT HAS

DONE SOME GOOD.

MY HATS OFF TO THE CLEVELAND

CLINIC AND DR. LOBEL.

TERRY?

Terry: A RAPPER WHO

RELEASED AN ALBUM CALLED

"THE WORLD IS MINE," AND

FELT HIS OWN WORLD SLIPPING

AWAY.

I HAD TO HAVE MY FOUR

TABLETS A DAY OR I WOULD

START FREAKINGOUT.

Terry: HOWTHIS MENACE

FOUND PEACE IN A JAIL CELL.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: THE MOB, THE

GANGS, QUICK MONEY.

SELL SOME DRUGS AND MAKE A

LOT OF MONEY.

JOHNNIE CAMPA SAYS HE LIVED

BY HIS OWN SET OF RULES.

AND THOSE RULES INCLUDED

MAKING AS MUCH MONEY AS FAST

AS HE COULD BY ANY MEANS

NECESSARY.

THERE WAS JUST ONE PROBLEM:

AS SOON AS JOHNNIE STRUCK IT

RICH, EVERYTHING ELSE FELL

APART.

*

* DO YOU WANT TO HANG WITH

US *

Reporter: AS A RAPPER,

JOHNNIE CAMPA WAS KNOWN AS

LITTLE MENACE, AND HE MORE

THAN LIVED UP TO THE NAME.

THEFT, ROBBERIES,

STEALING CARS, THINGS LIKE

THAT.

DRUGS ARE ALWAYS A PART OF

THE EQUATION WHEN YOU'RE OUT

THERE.

THAT'S WHAT THIS PLACE

BRINGS, MAN.

Reporter: JOHNNIE WAS

RAISED IN SOUTH CENTRAL

LOS ANGELES.

HIS PARENTS DIVORCED WHEN HE

WAS YOUNG.

I'M AN ONLY CHILD, SO I

JUST REMEMBER TRYING TO

ALWAYS BE, LIKE, IS THIS

HAPPENING BECAUSE OF ME?

YOU KNOW?

I NEVER REALLY GOT A REAL

CLARITY OUT OF ANYTHING FROM

MY FAMILY.

I WAS ALWAYS TRYING TO BE A

PART OF SOMETHING.

Reporter: HE LIVED WITH

HIS GRANDMOTHER IN A ROUGH

AREA.

BEFORE LONG, JOHNNIE JOINED

A GANG AND STARTED GETTING

HIGH.

THE GANG GAVE HIM THE

ACCEPTANCE HE CRAZED.

I WAS A MEMBER OF A

NEIGHBORHOOD, AND THAT

NEIGHBORHOOD WAS MINE.

WHATEVER THEY CALLED ME TO

DO, YOU KNOW.

IF IT WAS A GUNFIGHT WE HAD

TO DO, WE WOULD GET INTO A

GUN FIGHT.

SO WE WERE STRAPPED ALL OF

THE TIME, AND WE'RE READY.

Reporter: AS A HOBBY,

HE ALSO DEVELOPED SKILLS AS

A RAPPER.

WHEN A LOCAL PRODUCER HEARD

HIM --

THAT DAY I GOT SIGNED TO

THE LABEL.

IT WAS THE HOTTEST LABEL.

AND LITTLE BY LITTLE, IT

JUST BLEW UP.

Reporter: HE BECAME

KNOWN AS "LITTLE MENACE."

BY NOW HE HAD MOVED IN WITH

HIS GIRLFRIEND, AND THEY HAD

A DAUGHTER, AND HE STARTED

DISTANCING HIMSELF FROM THE

GANG.

WE HAD A WEDDING AND I

MOVED MY FAMILY OUT OF THE

HOOD AND WE GOT A NICE

LITTLE PAD, IN A NICE AREA,

AND WE'RE TRAVELLING AROUND

THE WORLD, MAN.

Reporter: AS HIS

POPULARITY INCREASED, THE

STRESS OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

BROUGHT ON A NEW HABIT AND

INTO PROBLEMS.

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY GOT ME

STRESSED OUT.

I WANTED MONEY.

AND MY TEMPER WAS FLARING UP

AND MY HEART WAS GOING.

I WAS JUST HAVING ALL OF

THESE ISSUES, MAN.

AND THEY STARTED GIVING ME

SOME MEDICATION.

DOCTORS ARE, LIKE, HERE TAKE

THIS, TAKE THIS.

I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE MY FOUR

TABLETS EVERY DAY OR I WOULD

START FREAKING OUT.

MY WIFE WAS, LIKE, HONEY,

YOU SLOW DOWN.

THERE IS NO TIME TO SLOW

DOWN.

I WANT TO MAKE THIS.

I WANT TO BE KNOWN AS THE

BEST CHICANO RAPPER THAT

EVER LIVED.

Reporter: OVER TIME, HE

ALSO DISTANCED HIMSELF FROM

HIS WIFE AND THEY

SEPARATED.

ONE DAY JOHNNIE WAS ARRESTED

FOR GUN POSSESSION, AND HE

CALLED HIS FAMILY FOR HELP.

NO ONE WOULD TALK TO ME.

MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD ANSWER

MY PHONE CALL.

MY MOTHERDIDN'T WANT TO

ANSWER MY PHONECALL, AND MY

WIFE DIDN'T WANTTO ANSWER

MY PHONE CALL.

Reporter:A FORMER GANG

MEMBER TOLD HIM HOW HE

THOUGHT HE HAD A SECOND

CHANCE AT LIFE AND HE THREW

IT AWAY.

I WAS DYING BEFORE, AND

GOD GAVE ME A NEW LIFE, BUT

I LOST IT ALL BECAUSE I WENT

BACK TO MY CONNECT.

I WENT BACK TO SHOOTING UP

HEROIN.

BUT THE WAY HE SAID IT, IT

WAS SUCH A POWERFUL WAY.

HE SAID, I WANTED THIS

CHANCE AND I WANTED IT SO

BAD.

Reporter: JOHNNIE

THOUGHT ABOUT HIS OWN LIFE,

AND HOW HE WASTED IT CHASING

MONEY AND ACCEPTANCE.

AND I THOUGHT, WHY AM I

HEARING CRYING.

IN HIS PRESENCE, YOU KNOW, I

FELT SOMETHING.

I JUST FELT SOMETHING.

I FELT LOVE.

IT WAS GOD JUST, LIKE,

SAYING THIS IS WHO I AM.

I'M A MAN OF SECOND CHANCES

AND THIRD CHANCES.

BECAUSE I WAS HEARING ALL OF

THESE CHANCES THAT THIS GUY

HAD, YOU KNOW.

BUT I WANTED TO APPRECIATE

THESE CHANCES, YOU KNOW?

I DON'T WANT TO BE HERE IN

JAIL FOR THE REST OF MY

LIFE.

Reporter: AFTER JOHNNIE

WAS RELEASED ON BAIL, HE

CALLED A FRIEND'S DAUGHTER

HE KNEW AS A CHRISTIAN.

SHE INVITED HIM TO CHURCH.

I REMEMBER RUNNING UP

THERE AND JUST GIVING MY

LIFE TO THE LORD BECAUSE I

KNEW AT THAT TIME I NEEDED

THE LORD.

ALL THAT LIFE THAT I WAS

LIVING, I WAS ALWAYS

SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING.

WHETHER SEARCHING FOR LOVE,

SEARCHING FOR ATTENTION,

SEARCHING FOR MONEY.

AND ALL I NEEDED THAT WHOLE

TIME, IT WAS OBVIOUS TO ME

THEN, WAS JESUS.

Reporter: IN TIME, HE

REUNITED WITH HIS WIFE, WHO

ALSO ACCEPTED CHRIST.

THEY NOW HAVE THREE

DAUGHTERS AND A STRONG LOVE

FOR ONE ANOTHER.

I LEARNED HOW TO PUT MY

FAMILY ON THE PEDESTAL, PUT

THEM FIRST.

AND HAVE THAT BONDING TIME

WITH THEM.

Reporter: JOHNNIE HAS

FOUND HIS TRUE IDENTITY IN

CHRIST.

TODAY HE GOES BACK INTO THE

SAME STREETS THAT HE ONCE

TERRORIZED, TO BRING HOPE TO

THE HOPELESS THROUGH

CHRIST.

THERE IS MORE THAN THAT,

MAN.

THERE IS A LIFE.

THERE IS A LIFE IN CHRIST.

GOD WANTS TO TAKE THEM OUT

OF ALL OF THAT BONDAGE AND

THE OPPRESSION THAT IS

BEHIND ALL THESE PLACES.

I KNOW GOD WANTS TO

TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES, LIKE

HE DID MINE.

JESUS IS MY FATHER, MY LORD,

MY SAVIOR.

HE IS MY BEGINNING AND MY

END.

HE IS THE AUTHOR.

HE IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA.

HE IS THE FINISHER OF MY

FAITH.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT.

Pat: EVERYBODY IS

SEARCHING.

JOHNNIE WAS SEARCHING.

HE WANTED ACCEPTANCE.

HE WANTED FAME.

HE WANTED MONEY.

HE WANTED PLEASURE.

A LOT OF TIMES YOU THINK, IF

I SHOOT SOMETHING IN MY

VEINS OR TAKE A PILL OR

SMOKE SOMETHING, IT WILL

GIVE ME PLEASURE.

THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS

PLEASURE IN SIN FOR A

SEASON, BUT IT DOESN'T LAST

VERY LONG.

AND THEN YOU'RE DOWN AND

YOU'RE CRYING OUT, WHAT'S

NEXT?

FORTUNATELY FOR JOHNNIE, HE

TURNED TO THE ONE WHO HAS

THE ANSWER BECAUSE, REALLY,

WHEN YOU'RE SEEKING, THE ONE

THING THAT WE ALL LOOK FOR

IS ACCEPTANCE WITH OUR

HEAVENLY FATHER.

WE ALL ARE LOOKING FOR THE

LOVE OF GOD.

ACCEPTANCE WITH GOD.

PEACE WITH GOD.

BECAUSE HE MADE US.

AND THERE IS A POOL THAT

DRAWS US BACK TO HIM.

AND WHAT HE SAYS IS, COME

HOME.

I WILL FORGIVE YOU.

AND YOU SAY, OH, NO, NO, NO,

NO.

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'VE

DONE.

AND GOD SAYS, YES, I KNOW

EXACTLY WHAT YOU'VE DONE,

EXACTLY WHERE YOU'VE BEEN,

WHO YOU HURT, HOW YOU'VE

HURT YOURSELF.

I KNOW ALL ABOUT IT.

AND I'M STILL WILLING TO

FORGIVE YOU.

ALL I'M ASKING YOU TO DO IS

REACH OUT AND TAKE MY

FORGIVENESS.

TAKE THE OFFER OF

FORGIVENESS, WHICH IS IN

JESUS CHRIST.

NOW, IF YOU WANT THAT, DO

WHAT JOHNNIE DID.

HE RUSHED TO THE ALTER AND

SAID, LORD, I WANT YOU.

AND IF YOU WANT HIM RIGHT

NOW, I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH

ME THESE WORDS.

DON'T GO ANYWHERE.

RIGHT NOW BOW YOUR HEAD.

PRAY THESE WORDS AND MEAN

THEM IN YOUR HEART.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW ME.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE DONE.

YOU KNOW WHO I AM.

AND SO I COME TO YOU WITHOUT

ANY PLEA, WITHOUT ANY

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

I COME TO YOU AS A SINNER,

AND I SAY, LORD, I KNOW YOU

DIED FOR SINNERS AND YOU

DIED FOR ME.

SO COME INTO MY HEART, LORD

JESUS.

AND I'LL LIVE FOR YOU AND

I'LL SERVE YOU ALL THE DAYS

OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD, FOR HEARING

MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU FOR COMING

INTO MY HEART.

AND FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED

WITH ME, I WANT TO PRAY FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW, REAL QUICK,

JUST THIS MOMENT.

FATHER, FILL THEM WITH THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

LET THEM SEE THE REALITY OF

JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO GET STARTED

AND GET UNDER WAY.

I DID A LITTLE COMPACT DISC

A FEW YEARS AGO.

IT'S ABOUT 73 MINUTES OF

AUDIO.

IT TALKS ABOUT THE EXCHANGED

LIFE, WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE

YOUR SINS FORGIVEN.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A NEW

CREATURE IN LIFE.

WHAT IF YOU SIN, WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT?

WHAT ABOUT THE SECOND COMING

OF JESUS?

WHAT ABOUT THE BAPTISM OF

SPIRIT?

IT'S ALL HERE.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU FREE

IF YOU'LL CALL US.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, YOU DON'T HAVE

TO, BUT CALL US AND SAY, I

PRAYED WITH PAT AND GAVE MY

HEART TO THE LORD.

1-800-759-0700.

IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

DECISION YOU'VE EVER MADE IN

ALL YOUR LIFE.

HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

WE'RE GOING TO SIT DOWN WITH

THE NIECE OF MARTIN LUTHER

KING.

ELAINE SAYS, "MY DAUGHTER

WANTS TO BE A MISSIONARY.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY

ABOUT WOMEN IN MINISTRY?"

WE'LL ANSWER THAT QUESTION

AND MORE WHEN WE COME BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

A FEDERALAPPEALS COURT HAS

RULED FORTHE FIRST TIME

THAT STATES CANNOT PREVENT

SAME-SEX COUPLES FROM

GETTING MARRIED.

THE THREE-JUDGE PANEL IN

DENVER ON THE 10th.

CIRCUIT RULED TWO

TOONE, STRIKING DOWN UTAH'S

BAN ON IT, AND SAYING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE DOESNOT

UNDERMINE TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE.

THE RULING IS ON HOLD WHILE

ON APPEAL.

ANOTHER DEADLY TERRORIST

ATTACK IN NIGERIA.

21 PEOPLE ARE DEAD AND 17

WOUNDED IN A BOMBING AT A

SHOPPING MALL IN THE

COUNTRY'S CAPITAL.

IT IS THE LATEST IN A SERIES

OF VIOLENT ATTACKS BLAMED ON

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.

TWO SEPARATE EXPLOSIONS IN

APRIL KILLED 120 PEOPLE AND

WOUNDED ABOUT 200 PEOPLE AT

A BUS STATION IN BAIJI.

MORE THAN 2,000 PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN KILLED IN BOKO HARAM

ATTACKS THIS YEAR.

YOU CANTHEAYS

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOINGTO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRWILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, IF YOU

THINK YOU'RE SMARTER THAN A

FIFTH GRADER WHEN IT COMES

TO BIBLE TRIVIA, YOU SHOULD

TRY YOUR HAND ON THE SHOW

"AMERICA'S BIBLE

CHALLENGE."

HERE IS A CLIP FROM

TONIGHT'S EPISODEMENT.

> EPISODEMENT.

WHICH HOUSEWIFE FLIPPED

OUT ON A ROAD TRIP WITH HER

HUSBAND AND WENT AFTER HER

SON WITH A KNIFE.

MANAGEMARGE SIMPSON, ESTHER

OR MARTHA?

Terry: YOU CAN ANSWER

THAT QUESTION AND MORE

DURING AN ALL NEW EPISODE.

TUNE INTO THE GAME SHOW

NETWORK AT 8:00, 7:00

CENTRAL TIME.

Pat: IT HAS BECOME THE

MOST POPULAR SHOW ON THE

GAME SHOW NETWORK.

Terry: IT'S FUN.

WE HAVE SOME IN-BOX

QUESTIONS.

AND THE FIRST ONE, PAT,

COMES FROM MARK, WHO

SAYS, "IS IT OKAY TO EAT

BACON?"

Pat: ARE YOU ASKING

BIBLICALLY OR FROM A HEALTH

STANDPOINT.

AS FAR AS HEALTH, THEY CURE

IT IN NITRATES.

IF IT IS NOT CURED IN

NITRATES, I DON'T THINK

THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH

IT.

IN TERMS OF THE BIBLE, THERE

WAS A PROHIBITION AGAINST

EATING PORK.

THEY HAD TRICHINOSIS.

BUT THOSE DIETARY CONDITIONS

DON'T APPLY TODAY.

THE HEALTH THING HAS TO DO

IF IT IS GOOD FOR YOUR

HEALTH OR NOT.

OTHER THAN THAT, WE'RE NO

LONGER UNDER THOSE DIETARY

LAWS.

Terry: ELAINE SAYS, "MY

TEENAGED DAUGHTER STUDIES

HER BIBLE AND IS CONSIDERING

MISSIONARY WORK AND NURSING

AS A CAREER SOME DAY.

PLEASE HELP US UNDERSTAND

CORINTHIANS AND TIMOTHY

ABOUT WOMEN IN MINISTRY.

SHE HAS COME TO ME WITH

QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THIS

RELATES TO WOMEN IN THE

MINISTRY TODAY, AND I'D LIKE

YOUR ADVICE."

Pat: I'VE GOT

CONTROVERSY ON THAT SOME

TIME AGO.

THE BIBLE SAYS A WOMAN MAY

NOT TEACH AND BE AUTHORITY

OVER MEN.

THAT'S WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAYS.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THERE

WERE WOMEN IN CHURCH, AND

THERE WERE THE DEACONES IN

CHURCH.

THEY WERE THE FUNDING SOURCE

FOR JESUS HIMSELF -- I SAID

THE SOURCE, AND THE SOURCE

WAS GOD, BUT THEY WERE THE

INSTRUMENT.

GODLY WOMEN -- WHAT WOULD WE

DO IN THE CHURCH WITHOUT THE

WOMEN?

THERE WOULD BE NO CHURCH

WITHOUT THE WOMEN.

SO THERE HAVE BEEN GODLY

PEOPLE.

BUT THE IDEA IS TO PUT A

WOMAN OVER A MAN, IN TERMS

OF THE BIBLE TEACHING, IT

WAS -- WELL, THE APOSTLE

PAUL SAYS IT WASN'T A GOOD

THING.

BUT ON THE MISSION FIELD,

THERE ARE MANY WOMEN WHO DO

WONDERFUL THINGS --

Terry: AND THERE ARE

MANY WOMEN PASTORS WHO ARE

GREAT --

Pat: I KNOW, AND MANY

DISAGREED WITH ME WHEN I

QUOTED THE APOSTLE PAUL.

BUT IF YOUR DAUGHTER HAS A

CALLING, LET HER FULFILL THE

CALL OF GOD.

Terry: AND MISSIONARY

WORK WOULDN'T PUT HER IN A

POSITION OF --

Pat: OF COURSE NOT.

THESE WONDERFUL LADIES HAVE

BEEN AGENTS OF HEALING AND

BLESSING FOREVER AND EVER.

WE JUST SHOWED A WOMAN WHO

IS A BRILLIANT NEUROSURGEON

AT CLEVELAND CLINIC.

Terry: IMPACTING

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Pat: THE CONTRIBUTION

IS JUST EXTRAORDINARY.

LET THE DAUGHTER FOLLOW WHAT

GOD SHOWS HER TO DO, AND

DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHAT PAUL

SAID.

I THINK OUR CURRENT FEELING

IS THAT, YOU KNOW, WOMEN ARE

FREE.

THEY'RE EQUAL PARTNERS IN

THE LORD.

Terry: THIS IS OLIVIA

WHO SAYS, "DEAR PAT, MY

FRIEND IN HIGH SCHOOL TOLD

ME SHE HAS TRIED WITCHCRAFT

AND USED IT TO GET AN "A" ON

HER TEST, WHICH SHE DIDN'T

REALLY OBSERVE.

I SHARED SOMETHING WITH HER

ABOUT MY PAST STRUGGLE, AND

SHE OPENED UP AND CONFESSED

SHE HAD AN ABORTION.

WE BOTH PROMISED TO KEEP

THESE THINGS TO OURSELVES.

SHOULD I STILL HANG OUT WITH

HER EVEN THOUGH SHE IS STILL

PRACTICING WITCHCRAFT?"

Pat: DON'T GET INTO

WITCHCRAFT.

DON'T START SEANCES.

DON'T GET INTO THAT.

THE QUESTION IS: CAN YOU BE

THE INSTRUMENT OF BLESSING

FOR HER?

OR IS SHE GOING TO BE AN

INSTRUMENT OF PULLING YOU

DOWN?

AND I CAN'T ANSWER THAT.

BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS

WOMAN IS OPEN TO HEARING

MORE ABOUT THE LORD.

Terry: THIS IS JACQUES

WHO SAYS, "IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT MEN HAD MANY WIVES

AND IT DIDN'T SEEM THAT IT

DIDN'T GO AGAINST GOD.

WHERE DOES IT SAY IN THE

BIBLE THAT MEN SHOULD HAVE

ONLY ONE WIFE?"

Pat: GO TO UTAH AND YOU

CAN HAVE MANY.

GO TO SAUDI ARABIA, AND YOU

CAN HAVE FOUR.

AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE

ONES YOU'VE GOT, YOU CAN SAY

I DIVORCE YOU, I DIVORCE

YOU, I DIVORCE YOU, FOUR

TIMES AND YOU'RE FREE TO GO

DO IT AGAIN.

THAT IS A PRETTY CONVENIENT

RELIGION, ISN'T IT?

Terry: I WOULD SAY.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS, AS

FAR AS THE ELDERS, HE SHOULD

BE THE HUSBAND OF ONE WIFE.

Terry: THAT'S THE NEW

TESTAMENT.

Pat: GO BACK IN THE

BOOK OF GENESIS.

"FOR THIS CAUSE SHALL A MAN

LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER

AND CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE AND

THE TWO SHALL BE AS ONE."

SOLOMON HAD 300 WIVES, 700

CONCUBINES.

HOW DID HE HAVE TIME FOR ALL

OF THAT?

Terry: SOME OF THAT WAS

JUST A COLLECTION, YOU

THINK.

Pat: YOU RECKON?

Terry: I RECKON.

NOBODY WOULD WANT TO CONTEND

WITH ALL OF THAT.

Pat: NOBODY HAS THE

STRENGTH?

Terry: NO.

Pat: YOU TAKE A LOT OF

VITAMINS -- THAT POOR OLD

MAN.

SO MUCH FOR THAT.

I SAID WHEN THEY MAKE THESE

RULINGS THAT THEY'RE MAKING

ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY, WHEN

THEY'RE MAKING THESE RULINGS

ABOUT OTHER SEXUAL

PRACTICES, IT WON'T BE LONG

BEFORE THEY CANCEL THE LAWS

FORBIDDING BIGAMY.

YOU KNOW THAT HAS TO BE.

AFTER ALL, IF POLY AMORI, IF

PEOPLE LOVE EACH OTHER,

ACCORDING TO THE SUPREME

COURT AND THEY'RE ADULTS,

THEY CAN EXPRESS THEIR LOVE

AWAY THEY WANT TO.

SO LAWS AGAINST BIGAMY -- IT

WAS SAID BY RICK SANTORUM,

SURELY ENOUGH THOSE LAWS

WILL COME DOWN.

Terry: ONCE YOU CHANGE

THE DEFINITION --

Pat: EVERYTHING GOES.

ELDERS, HUSBAND OF ONE

WIFE.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

OKAY.

Terry: WHAT DOES IT

TAKE TO BE AN INFLUENTIAL

LEADER?

HEAR THE RULES THAT TURNED A

YOUNG MINISTER INTO A

NATIONAL ICON.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: MARTIN LUTHER

KING WAS JUST 39 YEARS OLD

WHEN HE DIED.

DURING HIS SHORT LIFE, HE

WORKED TO END AMERICA'S LONG

HISTORY OF INJUSTICE.

HOW DID HE DO IT?

ACCORDING TO HIS NIECE, BY

FOLLOWING THE RULES.

Reporter: ALVITA KING

HAS SEEN HER SHARE OF

TRAGEDIES, FROM THE

ASSASSINATION OF HER UNCLE,

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. TO

THE UNTIMELY DEATH OF HER

FATHER.

BUT SHE HAS ALSO WITNESSED

GREAT TRIUMPH, SUCH AS THE

PASSING OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS

ACT.

THROUGH ALL OF LIFE'S TRIALS

AND VICTORIES, THEY LEARNED

TRUTHS THAT ENABLED THEM TO

BRING ABOUT REVOLUTION NAY

REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE.

SHE SHARES THE CORE GUIDANCE

THAT WILL HELP YOU, YOUR

FAMILY, AND OUR NATION TO

PROSPER.

Terry: ALVITA KING IS

HERE WITH US NOW.

AND WE WELCOME YOU BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS SO GREAT TO BE

HERE.

Terry: YOUR BOOK IS

CALLED "KING RULES."

BUT THE RULES THAT MARTIN

LIVED BY REALLY WERE NOT

JUST HIS.

THEY WERE FROM A LONG LINE

OF KING RULES.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

ABSOLUTELY.

YOU'LL SEE IN OUR FAMILY

TREE SEVEN GENERATIONS.

Terry: THAT FAMILY

TREE, I LOOKED AT AND WENT,

OH, MY GOODNESS, I HAVE

NEVER SEEN A TREE THIS BIG.

Reporter: IT IS AT

kingrules.com.

WE WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT

MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS NOT

BORN IN A VACUUM.

HE CAME FROM IMPERFECT

PEOPLE THAT SERVED A PERFECT

GOD.

Terry: ONE OF THE FIRST

RULES YOU SAY IS TO MAKE

HOME A PRIORITY.

AND I THOUGHT, BOY, AS THE

WORLD GETS FASTER AND FASTER

AND FASTER, WE SOMETIMES GET

OUR PRIORITIES OUT OF

ORDER.

BUT THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT

ONE.

IT HAS BEEN SIGNIFICANT FOR

YOUR FAMILY.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

WELL, THE IMPORTANCE OF

HOME, I REMEMBER IT FROM

BEING A LITTLE GIRL.

AND I REMEMBER THE BIRTH

HOME WHERE MARTIN LUTHER

KING, JR. WAS BORN, MINE

DADDY AND CHRISTINE, THEIR

SISTER, WAS BORN.

AND THERE WERE SO MANY RULES

AT HOME.

I KNOW THE AUDIENCE WOULD

LOVE TO HERE THIS, AT HOME,

DADDY, AFTER JESUS, WAS

KING.

THE FATHER WAS THE HEAD OF

THE HOUSEHOLD.

AND THEN THERE WAS MAMA KING

AND THE CHILDREN AND THEY

OBEYED THE RULES.

DADDY KING -- THEY WOULD

HOLD DINNER UNTIL HE CAME

HOME WHEN HE WAS IN TOWN.

AND WHEN HE GOT THERE,

EVERYBODY HAD TO DO A BIBLE

VERSE.

THE BOYS MAY BE HUNGRY

BECAUSE THEY WERE WAITING,

AND THEY WOULD SAY JESUS

WEPT.

AND DADDY WOULD SAY, THAT

IS THE SHORTEST VERSE IN THE

BIBLE, BUT WHY DID HE WEEP.

SO IT WOULD MAKE DINNER

LONGER.

Terry: YOU ALSO SAY ONE

OF THE OTHER RULES YOU SAY,

WORK FOR PEACE.

NOT A SURPRISE TO PEOPLE

BECAUSE I THINK THAT'S

MARTIN'S LEGACY, THAT WE

SHOULD ALL BE WORKING FOR

PEACE.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

YOU NOTICE IN THE BOOK

THERE ARE SCRIPTURES TO

SUPPORT ALL OF THOSE

POSITIONS.

WE WERE LOOKING FOR THE

PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING, THE PEACE

THAT CAUSES MEN AND WOMEN,

NO MATTER WHAT THEIR ETHNIC

GROUP IS, OR ECONOMIC

STATUS, TO LOVE EACH OTHER.

WE BELIEVE IF YOU LOVE AND

REGARD YOUR FELLOW HUMAN

BEING, THEN THERE WILL BE

PEACE BECAUSE YOU WILL

RESPOND EVEN TO WRONGS WITH

LOVE.

THAT'S REALLY WHERE YOU GET

PEACE.

Terry: THE "EVEN TO

WRONGS" IS HUGE, ISN'T IT?

IT IS VERY HUGE.

IN THE 20th CENTURY, WE

WERE STILL DEALING WITH SKIN

COLOR AND RACISM.

AND THERE ARE SO MANY ISSUES

FOR ALL PEOPLE, FROM

CONCEPTION TO NATURAL

DEATH.

THE BABY IN THE WOMB, OF

COURSE, BUT ONCE THE BABY IS

BORN AND BECOMES A TEENAGER

AND AN ADULT, AND THEN A

MATURE PERSON AND AN OLD

PERSON, AND I'M 64 AND I'VE

NEVEALWAYS SAID, NEVER

MISTREAT OLD PEOPLE.

BUT NOW THAT I'M 64, NEVER

MISTREAT OLD PEOPLE.

Terry: IT IS GETTING

MORE IMPORTANT TO ME, TOO.

I WANT YOU TO TALK ABOUT

LIFE.

THE LAST TIME WE WERE

TOGETHER, WE WERE AT A LOCAL

GATHERING THAT WAS ALL ABOUT

LIFE.

AND ONE OF THE RULES IS

DEFEND LIFE.

I KNOW YOU'RE PRO-LIFE.

YOU SAID DR. KING WAS

PRO-LIFE.

EVEN THOUGH HE ONCE RECEIVED

AN AWARD FROM PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, BUT THERE WAS A

STRONG BELIEF THERE IN THE

VALUE OF LIFE.

DADDY KING, MY GRANDDADDY

, MY MOTHER WANTED TO HAVE A

PROCEDURE TO NOT HAVE ME IN

1950.

ABORTION WAS ILLEGAL.

BUT YOU COULD GO TO THE

DOCTOR AND SAY MY STOMACH

HURTS AND HE COULD EXPLORE,

AND YOU WOULD COME AWAY WITH

EVERYTHING THAT WAS THERE

NOT THERE.

AND HE SAYS, NINI, YOU

CANNOT ABORT THAT GIRL.

SHE IS A LITTLE GIRL WITH

BRIGHT RED HAIR, I SAW HER

IN A DREAM.

BEFORE ULTRASOUND, HE SAW ME

BEFORE I WAS BORN.

IN THE '70s, I THOUGHT

ABOUT ABORTING A CHILD, AND

I CALLED MY DADDY, AND HE

SAID, NO, THAT'S MY

GRANDDAUGHTER.

NO.

SO WE DEFEND ALL LIFE.

NOT JUST THE BABIES.

THE HUNGRY.

AND THERE IS A BOOK ABOUT

THE NEEDY.

YOU DEFEND AND STAND UP FOR

EVERYBODY.

Terry: YEAH.

WHAT WAS IT IN YOUR OWN LIFE

THAT CHANGED THINGS FOR

YOU?

YOU WENT THROUGH STRUGGLES

YOURSELF, AND EVEN COMING UP

TO A PLACE WHERE YOU WERE

CONSIDERING AN ABORTION AT A

POINT OF NEED IN YOUR LIFE.

WAS IT THE FAMILY RULES THAT

FINALLY BROUGHT YOU DOWN THE

ROAD TO A TIGHT RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD?

IT WAS THE FAMILY RULES

THAT BROUGHT ME BACK.

THE WORD OF MY GRANDFATHER.

IN 1983 I ACCEPTED JESUS AS

MY LORD, AND NOT

GRANDDADDY'S GOD OR DADDY'S

GOD, BUT MY GOD.

IN 1983 MY LIFE CHANGED.

AND I ENDED UP WITH PRIEST

FOR LIFE MANY YEARS LATER.

Terry: WOW.

WHEN YOU WERE WRITING THIS

BOOK, I'M SUR SURE IT

BROUGHT BACK MANY MEMORIES,

BUT IT MUST ALSO MAKE YOU

THINK ABOUT TODAY.

WHAT DO YOU WANT IT TO BRING

PEOPLE TODAY.

THINK ABOUT ALL OF THE

BIBLES.

IT MEANT A LOT THAT A BIBLE

COMPANY WOULD TAKE THE

KING'S RULES, AND THERE IS A

SCRIPTURE, "MAY THE KING'S

RULE BE AS REFRESHING AS THE

RAIN."

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE

KING FAMILY.

BUT THE KING OF KING AND

LORD OF LORDS.

NO MATTER WHAT WE ARE DOING

IN OUR LIFE, WE ARE

IMPERFECT WITHOUT CHRIST.

THERE ARE 10 RULES THAT WILL

HELP US GET BACK TO GOD.

Terry: YOU WILL ENJOY

READING ABOUT ALL OF THEM

BECAUSE THE RULES MATTER,

AND SO DO THE STORIES

SURROUNDING THEM.

THIS IS AVAILABLE IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

ALVITA, WE THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US TODAY AND FOR

THE MESSAGE YOU BRING.

GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

GREAT TO SEE YOU, TOO.

Pat: FASCINATING.

THANK YOU.

WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH THIS

POWER MINUTE FROM PSALM 145:

"HE WILL FULFILL THE DESIRE

OF THOSE WHO FEAR HIM.

HE ALSO WILL HEAR THEIR CRY

AND SAVE THEM.

THE LORD PRESERVES ALL WHO

LOVE HIM."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

TOMORROW WE'LL GO ON A

JOURNEY WITH A WOMAN WHO

SPENT NINE MINUTES IN

HEAVEN.

MAN, I WANT TO HEAR WHAT

SHE'S GOT TO SAY, DON'T

YOU?

THAT'S FRIDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

SEE YOU THEN.

BYE-BYE.
