The 700 Club - July 24, 2014

A victim of childhood abuse, Larry suppressed the pain with drugs and alcohol. After his seventh DUI he went to prison and began to reevaluate his life. Read Transcript


THEY ARE FLOODING THE

AIRWAVES, AND THE GOVERNMENT

IS NOT HAPPY.

OUR CHANNEL AND OUR

SIGNALS ARE GETTING JAMMED

ON A DAILY BASIS.

PLUS...HEAR WHAT MADE

THIS JAILBIRD SING.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAD

TO HAPPEN.

AND THEN, A SUPER BUG

WITH NO CURE.

YOU'LL HAVE A BOUT OF

THIS FOR THE REST OF YOUR

LIFE.

HER MIRACLE OVER MERSA.

I FELT THE PRESENCE OF

THE LORD JUST SURROUND ME.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

I HAVE LONG CONTENDED THAT

THE UNITED NATIONS IS

BROKEN.

THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL

ASSEMBLY IS AN ABSOLUTE

JOKE.

IT IS A SOUNDING BOARD FOR

RADICAL ISLAMIC GROUPS.

AND THEY PROVED ME RIGHT

THIS DAY, OR YESTERDAY, IN A

WAY THAT YOU CANNOT

BELIEVE.

THEY HAVE A HUMAN RIGHTS

COUNCIL, WHICH A FEW YEARS

AGO INCLUDED LIBYA AS ONE OF

THE CHAMPIONS OF HUMAN

RIGHTS, AND THEY WANT TO

LOOK INTO WAR CRIMES IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

BUT WHO ARE THEY COMING

AGAINST?

ARE THEY GOING AGAINST THE

ONE WHO HAS BEEN LAUNCHING

ROCKETS AGAINST THE

CIVILIANS?

OH, NO.

THEY WANT TO HAVE A WAR

CRIMES INVESTIGATION AGAINST

ISRAEL.

Terry: THE UNITED

STATES AND OTHERS ARE TRYING

TO NEGOTIATE A CEASE-FIRE,

BUT RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS LIKE

THERE IS NO END OF SIGHT.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THIS STORY.

Reporter: HAMAS

LAUNCHED NEARLY 80 ROCKETS

AT ISRAEL ON THE SAME DAY

THE U.N. PASSED A RESOLUTION

TO INVESTIGATE ISRAEL FOR

WAR CRIMES.

IT PUTS THE WHOLE BURDEN

OF THE SITUATION ON ISRAEL,

WHEN THE CURRENT CRISIS

BEGAN WHEN HAMAS LAUNCHED

ROCKETS AT ISRAELI CITIES.

Reporter: ISRAEL CAME

UNDER FIRE FOR ATTACKING THE

WAFA HOSPITAL ON TUESDAY.

THE I.D.F. RELEASED THIS

FOOTAGE, SHOWING HOW HAMAS

USED THE HOSPITAL TO SHOOT

AT ISRAEL, AND A TRANSCRIPT

OF A PHONE CONVERSATION

CONFIRMING THE HOSPITAL WAS

EMPTY.

THIS USE OF HUMAN SHIELDS

IS EXTRAORDINARILY CYNICAL,

IT'S GROTESQUE, AND IT IS

INHUMANE.

BUT ISRAEL WAS CONDEMNED IN

THE HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL.

IT IS A TRAVESTY OF

JUSTICE.

Reporter: AMED LASHEL

SAYS THEIR GROUP IS SIMPLY

DEFENDING THEIR AREA.

ISRAEL GIVES UP THE ELEMENT

OF SURPRISE AND PUTS ITS OWN

SOLDIERS AT RISK BY WARNING

PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS TO

LEAVE THE PLACES IT WILL

ATTACK.

WHILE HAMAS USES ITS OWN

HUMANS AS HUMAN SHIELDS.

YET, ISRAEL IS OFTEN AT A

DISADVANTAGE TO PRESENT ITS

CASE.

I THINK PEOPLE SEE THE

EFFECTIVENESS OF THE ISRAEL

DEFENSE SYSTEMS, OF THE IRON

DOME, AND THEY SEE AS A

RESULT OF THOSE, ISRAEL PAYS

A LOT OF MONEY.

Reporter: RICHARD CAMP,

FORMER COMMANDER OF BRITISH

FORCES IN AFGHANISTAN SAYS

IT IS HAMAS, NOT ISRAEL,

THAT IS COMMITTING THE WAR

CRIMES.

ON THE CONTRARY, THE

HAMAS PALESTINIAN SIDE, IN

GAZA, NO MONEY HAS BEEN

INVESTED INPUTING PEOPLE IN

SHELTERS.

AND THEY ASSUME ISRAEL MUST

BE COMMITTING A WAR CRIME.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

JOHN KERRY CONTINUED HIS

DIPLOMACY TOWARDS REACHING A

CEASE-FIRE.

WE HAVE, IN THE LAST 24

HOURS, MADE SOME PROGRESS IN

MOVING TOWARDS THAT GOAL.

Reporter: IN THE

MEANTIME, "OPERATION

PROTECTIVE EDGE" ENTERED ITS

17th DAY.

BEHIND ME IS AN I.D.F.

BATTERY, AND ONE OF THE MAIN

GOALS OF THE I.D.F. REMAINS

FINDING AND DESTROYING THE

MANY INFILTRATION TUNNELS

DUG BY HAMAS INSIDE ISRAEL.

THAT THERE IS NO BORDER

OUR BOUNDARY OR LIMIT TO

THEIR ACCESS, THEN WE ARE

COMPLETELY EXPOSED.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, ON THE

ISRAELI-GAZA BORDER.

Pat: THANKS, CHRIS.

I SUGGESTED SOME YEARS AGO,

AND I SUGGESTED AGAIN, THAT

THE UNITED STATES PULL OUT

OF THE UNITED NATIONS.

IT IS A JOKE.

THEY LIVE LIKE POSHES, IN

LUXURIOUS SURROUNDINGS,

BEING PAID SOMETIMES DOUBLE

WHAT OUR DIPLOMATS ARE BEING

PAID.

IT IS AN ABSOLUTE TRAVESTY

WHAT THEY DO.

AND IT IS SO CLEARLY

WEIGHTED NOT ONLY AGAINST

ISRAEL, BUT AGAINST THE

UNITED STATES.

WHY WOULD WE PAY TO HAVE

SOMEBODY BANG US IN THE

HEAD?

IT'S CRAZY.

THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER

ORGANIZATION SET UP, A

COUNCIL OF DEMOCRATIC

NATIONS, OR DEMOCRACIES,

THAT LEAVE OUT SOME OF THESE

DICTATORSHIPS AND GET DOWN

TO SOMETHING THAT MAY REALLY

HAVE SOME GOOD.

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION

DOES A GOOD JOB AND OTHERS,

BUT FEW OF THEM DO.

IT'S JUST A JOKE.

AND THIS KIND OF PROPAGANDA

THING AGAINST ISRAEL IS

ANOTHER OUTRAGE.

WHY SHOULD THE TAXPAYERS'

MONEY GO TO FUND THIS

NONSENSE.

PEOPLE SAY, YOU'RE NOT FOUR

INTERNATIONALISM.

WELL, OF COURSE WE ARE, BUT

NOT THAT KIND.

IN OTHER NEWS, THERE IS GOOD

NEWS FOR THAT CHRISTIAN

MOTHER IN SUDAN WHO HAD BEEN

SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR

BLASPHEMY BECAUSE SHE

CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY,

OR SHE MARRIED A CHRISTIAN.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: MERIAM IBRAHIM,

WHO NEARLY DIED FOR HER

FAITH, IS NOW A FREE WOMAN.

SHE WAS TOLD SHE COULD LEAVE

WEDNESDAY, AFTER HER

PASSPORT WAS GIVEN BACK TO

HER.

SHE ARRIVED IN ITALY TODAY,

FOLLOWING EXTENDED TIME AT

THE U.S. EMBASSY IN SUDAN.

HER RELEASE COMES ONE DAY

AFTER A CONGRESSIONAL

HEARING ABOUT HER CASE.

SHE IS MARRIED TO AN

AMERICAN AND FACED THE DEATH

SENTENCE FOR APOSTASY.

EVEN AFTER HER RELEASE FROM

PRISON, AUTHORITIES REVENTED

HER FROM LEAVING SUDAN WITH

HER HUSBAND AND TWO

CHILDREN.

RELIGIOUS RIGHTS ADVOCATES

SAY HER CASE IS ONE OF

MANY.

SHE IS THE TIP OF THE

ICEBERG.

FOR EVERY ONE CASE OF MERIAM

IBRAHIM, THERE ARE HUNDREDS,

IF NOT THOUSANDS, OF THOSE

AND OTHERS WHO ARE VICTIMS

OF A DRA DRACONIAN

EXISTENCE OF SHARI'A LAW

UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF

PRESIDENT BASHIR, WHICH IS

AN ABOMINATION OF RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

THE UNITED STATES NEEDS

TO SHOW MORE CONCERN ABOUT

HOSTILITY AND PERSECUTION

AW ABROAD, PARTICULARLY IN

THE CASE OF MERIAM IBRAHIM.

Wendy: AT WEDNESDAY'S

HEARING, CHRIS MISS SAID THE

STATE DEPARTMENT IS

AGGRESSIVELY PROMOTING GAY

RIGHTS AT THE EXPENSE OF

RELIGIOUS RIGHTS.

THE GAY RIGHTS AGENDA IS

WHAT TRUMPS EVERYTHING IN

THE U.S. FOREIGN POLICY, SO

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, IN A WAY,

IS SEEN AS AND IMPEDIMENT.

AN ANCIENT CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY IN IRAQ IS NO

MORE.

FOR NEARLY 2,000 YEARS, THE

CITY OF MOSUL HAS HAD A

THRIVING CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY.

NOW ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS HAVE

DRIVEN NEARLY ALL OF THEM

OUT.

AS MARK MARTIN REPORTS, THE

REMAINING FEW COULD BECOME

MARTYRS.

Mark: IRAQI PRIME

MINISTER NOURI AL-MALIKI

CONDEMNED THE ATTACK OF

CHRISTIANS IN IRAQ.

HE SAYS CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN

EXPOSED OF VIOLENT ACTS THAT

HAVE NEVER BEEN WITNESSED

BEFORE IN IRAQ.

SUNNI MILITANTS TOLD THEM TO

CONVERT TO ISLAM, PAY A TAX,

OR FACE DEATH.

THERE ARE NO CHRISTIANS

LEFT IN MOSUL, GARY.

THEY HAVE ALL BEEN DRIVEN

OUT.

THEY WERE STRIPPED OF ALL OF

THEIR POSSESSIONS, LEFT WITH

NOTHING.

THEIR HOUSES, WHICH WERE

STAMPED NAZARENE, MEANING

CHRISTIAN, AND STAMPED

AGAIN, SAYING "PROPERTY OF

THE I ISLAMIC STATE."

AND THEIR CARS AND EVEN

THRO THEIR WEDDING RINGS,

AND FINGERS IF THE RINGS

WOULDN'T COME OFF.

Mark: AL-MALIKI HAS

PLEDGED TO PROTECT THE

CHRISTIANS, BUT SO FAR HIS

GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN

HELPLESS.

A DIRECTOR FOR THE RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM, NINA SHAY, SAYS THE

CHRISTIANS ARE FACING A

HEARTLESS ENEMY.

THEY HATE CHRISTIANS.

THEY HAVE TURNED OFF THEIR

WATERS, AND IT IS 120° THERE

TODAY.

THEY SAID TO THEM, YOU DON'T

DESERVE WATER.

Mark: NOT ONLY ARE

ISLAMISTS TARGETING

BELIEVERS, THEY ARE ALSO

DESTROYING ALL TRACES OF

CHRISTIANITY IN THE AREA.

THEY SHOW THEM DESTROYING

THE TOMBS OF JONAH AND

SETH.

I DID SEE THAT VIDEO AS

WELL.

THEY HAVE ALSO CAPTURED

ANCIENT MONASTARIES, AND

THEY'RE BURNING THE ANCIENT

MANUSCRIPTS, WHICH ARE

PRICELESS FOR THE HERITAGE

OF CHRISTIANITY.

Mark: AND THEN THERE IS

THE REFUGEE CRISIS.

U.N. OFFICIALS SAY ABOUT TWO

MILLION CHRISTIANS FROM IRAQ

AND SYRIA, RESIDE IN THE

NORTHERN IRAQI REGION OF

KURDISTAN.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: JUST ANOTHER

EXAMPLE OF CHRISTIAN

PERSECUTION.

Pat: IT IS WORSE THAN

THAT.

YOU ASK YOURSELF, WHERE IS

THE OUTRAGE?

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES?

THIS IS AN OUTRAGEOUS

THING.

CAN YOU IMAGINE A

FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATION THAT MOVED INTO

SOME PLACE IN EUROPE AND

BEGAN TO TEAR DOWN THE

CATHEDRALS AND SAY WE DON'T

AGREE WITH THIS AND IT'S

IDOLATRY, AND TO KILL ALL OF

THE INHABITANTS THAT DIDN'T

CONVERT TO CHRISTIANITY?

THE WORLD WOULD BE IN ARMS

ABOUT THIS.

AND HERE THIS GROUP OF

FANATICS -- IT IS JUST A

SMALL GROUP, BUT THIS IS A

RESULT OF THE THANKLESS

POLICY OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, WHICH DID

NOT HAVE A FORCES OF

AGREEMENT, AND THIS

AL-MALIKI, WHO WAS ALLOWED

TO STAY IN POWER, WHO WAS

CATERING TO A FEW SHIAS, AT

THE EXTENT OF THE SUNNIS,

AND HIS OWN ARMY WAS

DECIMATED BECAUSE HE FIRED

SO MANY LEADERS.

AND WHEN IT CAME TIME TO

FIGHT, ALL OF THE MEN RAN.

THEY DROPPED THEIR WEAPONS

AND THEIR UNIFORMS AND FLED

BECAUSE OF A FEW TERRORISTS

DRIVING PICKUP TRUCKS.

THE WHOLE THING WAS CRAZY.

WE HAD ARMED THAT GROUP TO

THE "T", BUT THEY DIDN'T

HAVE THE WILL TO FIGHT

BECAUSE MALIKI HAD DESTROYED

THEIR FRACTURE.

HE NEEDS TO GO.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WHY

ARE WE SITTING IDLY BY,

LETTING THIS HAPPEN?

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE.

SOME CONSERVATIVE, YOU KNOW,

GETS INVOLVED IN SOME SEX

SCANDAL AND IT'S HEADLINES

ALL ACROSS AMERICA.

THAT SEEMS TO BE WHAT WE'RE

CONCERNED ABOUT.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THESE

CHRISTIANS IN MOSUL?

IT'S 2,000 YEARS, AND

THEY'RE SUFFERING, AND

THEY'RE BEING PERSECUTED BY

MILITANT ISLAMISTS.

LET US NAME IT.

WHO IS DOING IT?

THE ISLAMIC PEOPLE.

IT'S NOT BEING DONE BY SOME

ARAN SECT.

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE

FUNDAMENTALIST MUSLIM

BELIEVERS.

WENDY?

Wendy: HERE AT HOME,

THE HEAD OF THE I.R.S. SAYS

IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO

RECOVER THOSE KEY E-MAILS

FROM LOIS LERNER AND OTHERS

IN THE AGENCY, E-MAILS ONCE

THOUGHT TO BE LOST FOR

GOOD.

THEY'RE A KEY PART OF AN

ONGOING INVESTIGATION INTO

THE AGENCY'S TARGETING OF

TEA PARTY AND OTHER

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS.

INVESTIGATORS ARE REVIEWING

THE TAPES TO SEE IF ANY

INFORMATION CAN BE

RECOVERED.

AND SHED SOME LIGHT ON

THOUSANDS OF LERNER'S

MISSING E-MAILS.

BEFORE SHE STEPPED DOWN,

LERNE WAS IN CHARGE OF THE

I.R.S. TAX EXEMPT DIVISION.

AND HER HARD DRIVE WAS

SUPPOSEDLY DESTROYED IN 2011

AFTER A COMPUTER CRASH.

BUT HOUSE INVESTIGATORS

BELIEVE THE HARD DRIVE WAS

JUST SCRATCHED, AND MOST OF

ITS CONTENTS COULD HAVE BEEN

RESTORED.

THE REPUBLICANS ACCUSE THE

AGENCY OF STONEWALLING AND A

POSSIBLE COVERUP, WHICH THE

I.R.S. DENIES.

THE TESTIMONY I HAD GIVEN

IN THE PAST WAS ACCURATE.

I TESTIFIED AS TO WHAT I

KNEW.

RIGHT NOW, THE QUESTION IS:

DO I KNOW ANYTHING MORE

ABOUT BACKUP TAPES?

AND THE ANSWER IS I DON'T

KNOW ANYMORE, OTHER THAN THE

I.G. IS INVESTIGATING IF

THERE ARE BACKUP TAPES AND

IF THEY'RE RECOVERABLE.

Wendy: THE REPUBLICANS

PLAN TO HOLD ANOTHER HEARING

ON THE TARGETING SCANDAL

NEXT WEEK.

AND, PAT, SURPRISED -- OR

NOT?

Pat: I'M NOT SURPRISED

OR SHOCKED.

WE HAVE TO HAVE CONFIDENCE

IN THE I.R.S.

THEY HAVE CONTROL OVER THE

MOST INTIMATE DETAILS OF

YOUR FINANCIAL DEALINGS.

THEY CAN SUBPOENA EVERY

RECORD YOU'VE GOT.

THEY CAN PUT A HOLD ON YOUR

BANK ACCOUNT.

THEY CAN PUT A HOLD ON YOUR

EARNINGS.

THEY CAN FORECLOSURE ON YOUR

PROPERTY.

AND THEY CAN ABUSE YOU

HORRIBLY.

AND WE TRUST THEM.

BUT WE CAN'T TRUST THEM

ANYMORE.

THIS IS THE MOST AWFUL

SCANDAL, THAT THEY KNEW WHAT

WAS GOING ON, AND IT IS JUST

KIND OF LIKE THEY'RE WALKING

THROUGH THE WHOLE THING AND

THEY'RE HOPING THAT CONGRESS

WILL CHANGE AND EVERYBODY

WILL FORGET IT.

WE CAPITOL FORGET IT.

-- WE CAN'T FORGET IT.

IT IS ONE MORE SCANDAL.

AND IT GOES ALL THE WAY UP

TO THE TOP OF THE PRESIDENT

ONE MORE TIME.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WHEN

ARE WE GOING TO WAKE UP.

Wendy: PAT, A BIG

MAJORITY OF OVERWEIGHT KIDS

IN AMERICA THINK THEIR

WEIGHT IS OKAY.

THAT'S A NEW FINDING FROM

THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE

CONTROL.

ABOUT 81% OF OVERWEIGHT BOYS

AND 71% OF OVERWEIGHT GIRLS

THINK THEIR WEIGHT IS JUST

ABOUT RIGHT.

RESEARCHERS WARN THAT MEANS

KIDS WON'T DO WHAT THEY NEED

TO DO TO LOSE THE WEIGHT.

IF THEY DON'T, THEY COULD

FACE POTENTIALLY SERIOUS

HEALTH PROBLEMS IN THE

FUTURE.

PAT, BOTH KIDS AND ADULTS

HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THEY HAVE

A PROBLEM BEFORE THEY'RE

GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT

IT, I GUESS.

Pat: I HEARD SOMEBODY

WHO WENT TO THE DOCTOR.

AND THE DOCTOR SAID, YOU ARE

OBESE.

AND HIS WIFE SAID, YOU KNOW,

THAT DOCTOR HURT HIS

FEELINGS.

TOUGH LUCK!

WHAT KIND OF DOCTOR WOULD

NOT TELL THE MAN HE HAS GOT

A PROBLEM.

HE IS GOING TO HAVE HIGH

BLOOD PRESSURE, DIABETES,

HEART CONDITION, AND HE IS

GOING TO DIE 20 YEARS

EARLY.

DON'T YOU THINK DOCTORS

OUGHT TO TELL PEOPLE THINGS

LIKE THAT?

ISN'T IT ABOUT TIME WE WAKE

UP?

OH, NO, WE'RE TOO BUSY

PLAYING VIDEO GAMES AND

OTHER THINGS.

Wendy: PASS THE

CUPCAKES.

Pat: THE DEAR LADIES

MAKE CUPCAKES, AND YOU FEEL

LIKE THEY'RE KILLING

PEOPLE.

REMEMBER THE CUPCAKE

LADIES?

Terry: YES, I DO.

Pat: I'M ALL FOR THEM,

BUT THEY'RE KILLING US.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A PLACE

WHERE THE SECRET POLICE

COULD KILL YOU JUST FOR

WATCHING TV, BUT THAT IS NOT

STOPPING THE PEOPLE THERE

FROM TUNING IN.

WHEN THEY TURN THE

CHANNEL ON AND THEY SEE THE

TV, THEY HEAR A NEW MESSAGE

OF FORGIVENESS, OF LOVE, OF

ACCEPTANCE.

Terry: HEAR HOW IRAN IS

BEING INFILTRATED FOR THE

GOSPEL.

THAT'S NEXT.

PAPER

Wendy: TOMORROW, HE

FELT THE NEED FOR SPEED

UNTIL HE COULDN'T FEEL HIS

OWN LEGS.

I JUST PARALYZED MYSELF.

Wendy: HEAR WHY THIS

RIDER IS NOW STANDING TALL.

PLUS...

THERE WAS NO WAY TO FIX

IT.

Wendy: A CHILD WHO

COULDN'T EAT.

HE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO

HOLD ANYTHING DOWN.

Wendy: GETS A VISIT

FROM THE SUPERNATURAL.

IT'S, LIKE, WHAT JUST

HAPPENED.

Wendy: FRIDAY, ON "THE

700 CLUB."

Pat: IRAN, IT HAS A

DICTATORSHIP, RUN BY

AYATOLLAHS, WHO ARE

RELIGIOUS LEADERS OF THE

SHIIA MUSLIM PERSUASION.

THEY RUN THE COUNTRY.

THEY ARE IN CHARGE.

THEY ARE FANATIC BELIEVERS

IN THE COMING OF THE MATI.

THEY BELIEVE IN THE

DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD.

BUT THEY ALSO DON'T LIKE

CHRISTIANS.

AND THIS GROUP IS THE MOST

PERSECUTED RELIGIOUS

MINORITY IN IRAN.

ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO HAVE

CONVERTED FROM ISLAM.

NOW ONE TELEVISION CHANNEL

IS BEAMING A MESSAGE OF HOPE

DIRECTLY INTO IRAN.

AND THE ISLAMIC AUTHORITIES

DON'T LIKE IT ONE BIT.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THIS

EXCLUSIVE REPORT ABOUT

MOHABAT TV.

George: THESE ARE VERY

BUSY AND EXCITING TIMES AT

MOHABAT TV, AS IT CARRIES

OUT ITS MISSION OF

BROADCASTING CHRISTIANITY

INTO IRAN.

WE'RE SEEING A HUGE, HUGE

NUMBER OF IRANIANS WHO ARE

REACHING OUT TO OUR

CHANNEL.

George: MIKE OVERSEES

THE POPULAR CHANNEL.

SINCE 2006, THEY HAVE BEEN

BEAMING CHRISTIAN PROGRAMS,

VIA SATELLITE, TO THE MIDDLE

EAST, EUROPE, AND PARTS OF

ASIA.

BUT FOR THE CAST, CREW,

PRODUCTION AND OFFICE STAFF,

THEIR MAIN FOCUS IS THE

ISLAMIC NATION OF IRAN.

MANY OF OUR VIEWERS THAT

ARE CONTACTING US FROM IRAN,

THEY CLAIM THAT ISLAM HAS

NOT DELIVERED TO THEIR

EXPECTATIONS.

SO WHEN THEY TURN THE

CHANNEL ON AND SEE MOHABAT

TV, THEY HEAR A NEW MESSAGE

OF JESUS, OF FORGIVENESS, OF

LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE.

George: THIS MAN

MANAGES THE PHONE CALL

CENTER OPERATIONS FOR THE

CHANNEL.

PERSIANS ARE REALLY

THIRSTY FOR THE TRUTH.

THEY WANT TO KNOW, WHO IS

THIS GOD THAT WE TALK

ABOUT?

WHO IS THIS JESUS?

IS HE REAL OR IS HE JUST A

PROPHET?

George: TO ANSWER THOSE

AND MANY OTHER QUESTIONS,

THE CHANNEL HAS EMPLOYED

FARSI-SPEAKING COUNSELLORS

IN DIFFERENT TIME ZONES

AROUND THE WORLD.

SHE SAYS THEY TAKE ON

AVERAGE BETWEEN 8,000 AND

10,000 CALLS A MONTH FROM

IRANIANS.

THAT'S WHEN WE OPEN THE

SUBJECT.

WE PREACH THE GOSPEL.

AND SO MANY GIVE THEIR

HEART.

SO MANY RECEIVE HIM.

George: BUT PRODUCING

CHRISTIAN PROGRAMS FOR IRAN

IS NOT WITHOUT ITS

CHALLENGES.

YOU SEE, THE BULK OF THE

PRODUCTIONS FOR THE CHANNEL

ARE DONE OUTSIDE OF IRAN,

FROM MULTIPLE SECRET

LOCATIONS, FOR SAFETY AND

SECURITY REASONS.

OUR CHANNEL AND OUR

SIGNALS ARE GETTING JAMMED

ON A DAILY BASIS.

IT IS TRUE THAT THE PHONE

CALLS ARE BEING MONITORED,

AND PEOPLE WHO TRIED TO

CONTACT US MAY GET

PERSECUTED FROM TIME TO

TIME.

George: IN JUNE 2011, A

CHRISTIAN MAN'S HOUSE GOT

RAIDED BY IRANIAN

AUTHORITIES AS HE WAS ON THE

PHONE WITH A MOHABAT

COUNSELLOR.

THIS IS AN AUDIO RECORDING

OF THE CONVERSATION BETWEEN

THE PHONE COUNSELLOR AND A

MEMBER OF THE IRANIAN SECRET

POLICE.

AS HE TELLS THE STORY OF

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN HE BROKE

INTO THE HOUSE.

IT HAS NEVER BEEN RELEASED

TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL NOW,

EXCLUSIVELY ON CBN NEWS.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

George: THE YOUNG

CHRISTIAN MAN WAS REPORTEDLY

KILLED SHORTLY AFTER THE

CONVERSATION.

BUT ANSARI SAYS THE THREATS

OF NOW STOPPING IRANIANS

FROM WATCHING THE CHANNEL,

WHICH PROVIDES 24-HOUR

CHRISTIAN PROGRAMMING.

REMEMBER IN IRAN, THERE

IS NO SUCH A THING AS A

SURGE, AS YOU AND I KNOW

OUTSIDE OF IRAN.

SO MANY IRANIANS WHO ARE

CURIOUS, THEY FIND IT

EASIER, MORE PRIVATE, AND

MORE SAFE TO BE AT HOME AT

THEIR OWN HOME, IN THE

COMFORTS OF THEIR HOME,

WATCHING THE CHANNEL.

George: THE OFFICIAL

RELIGION OF IRAN IS ISLAM.

CHRISTIANS ARE OFFICIALLY

LESS THAN HALF OF ONE

PERCENTS OF THE POPULATION.

THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY

ARE MUSLIM.

CHRISTIANS ARE ROUTINELY

IMPRISONED AND LABELLED AS

THREATS TO NATIONAL

SECURITY.

"OPEN DOORS" IS GROUP THAT

HAS SERVED THE PERS

PERSECUTED AREAS FOR

DECADES, HAVE LISTED THIS

AREA AT THE MOST

PERSECUTED.

WE HAVE SHOWS THAT WILL

GIVE THEM HOPE, AND YET TELL

THEM PERSECUTION IS PART OF

A CHRISTIAN'S LIFE.

WHEN YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN AND

YOU RESIDE IN A COUNTRY THAT

IS NOT PREDOMINANTLY

CHRISTIAN.

George: AT LEAST 49

CHRISTIANS ARE BEING HELD IN

JAILS.

AMONG THEM IS AMERICAN

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI, WHO IS

SERVING AN EIGHT-YEAR PRISON

TERM FOR REFUSING TO RECANT

THEIR FAITH.

WE DON'T WANT TO SEE ANY

OF THEM BEING PERSECUTED.

SO WE ASK THEM TO ACT WITH

WISDOM, AND BE WISE ABOUT

THEIR NEW FAITH AND THE WAY

THEY APPROACH OTHERS.

IN THE NAME OF THE

FATHER, THE SON, AND THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

George: THE HARSH

TREATMENT OF CHRISTIANS IS

REPORTEDLY FUELING THE

FLAMES OF CHURCH GROWTH.

WE'RE SEEING A NEW SEASON

RIGHT NOW.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO

ARE REACHING OUT ON THEIR

OWN ACCOUNTS.

IT SEEMS THAT THEY'RE NOT

AFRAID.

THEY JUST WANT TO REACH OUT

AND GO BEYOND ANY KIND OF

AUTHORITY AND LIMITATION

THAT MAY EXIST LOCALLY TO

THEM.

George: ANSARI, A

NATIVE OF IRAN, IS

ENCOURAGING CHRISTIANS

WORLDWIDE TO PRAY FOR IRAN,

ESPECIALLY NOW, AS THEY AND

MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS OBSERVE

RAMADAN.

OUR GOAL IS OUT THERE TO

TELL THEM THERE IS ANOTHER

CHOICE.

THE PROPHET JESUS, WHO THEY

KNOW VERY WELL THROUGH

ISLAM, THAT HE IS MORE THAN

A PROPHET.

HE CAN BRING A SENSE OF

HOPE.

George: GEORGE THOMAS,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: THE LORD HAS NOT

LEFT HIMSELF WITHOUT A

WITNESS.

WHY IS ISLAM SO AFRAID OF

CHRISTIANITY?

THE REASON IS CHRISTIANITY

IS THE TRUTH.

AND THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT IS GREATER THAN THE

LIES THAT ARE BEING TOLD

ABOUT MOHAMMED.

AND SO SOONER OR LATER,

ISLAM IS GOING TO FALL.

IT'S TREATMENT OF WOMEN,

IT'S ABUSIVE NATURE, IT'S

BRUTALITY TOWARDS OTHERS,

ITS STRICT RULES AND

DOCTRINES OF HATE AND

JIHAD.

WHEREAS THE LORD BRINGS A

MESSAGE OF LOVE AND HOPE AND

PEACE.

AND THEY WANT THAT,

ESPECIALLY THE TREATMENT OF

WOMEN, THAT WOMEN ARE

PRECIOUS AND GOD'S SIGHT.

AND THAT MESSAGE IS COMING

THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR INTO

THE ISLAMIC WORLD.

AND, OF COURSE, THE MULLAHS

ARE TERRIFIED OF IT BECAUSE

THEIR THRONE IS SHAKY, AND

THEIR HOLD ON POWER IS

SHAKY.

AND SOONER OR LATER THEY'RE

GOING TO LOSE IT.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, AFTER

SEVEN D.U.I.s, AND NINE

STINTS IN JAIL, A CAREER

CRIMINAL STARES AT 14 YEARS

BEHIND BARS.

THE JUDGE, RIGHT AWAY,

STARTED TO TELL ME, YOU CAN

FORGET ABOUT GETTING A BOND,

YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT GETTING

BAIL.

YOU'RE GOING TO PRISON.

Terry: SO HEAR HOW HE

GOT OUT.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: LARRY BLOOM -- HE

HAS SEEN THE WORST THAT

HUMANITY HAS TO OFFER.

LARRY WAS ABUSED SEXUALLY BY

SOMEONE CLOSE TO HIM.

HE HAS BEEN STRUNG OUT ON

DRUGS.

HE HAS BEEN LEFT TO ROT IN A

PRISON CELL.

SO AFTER YEARS OF TRYING TO

RUN AWAY FROM THE PAIN,

LARRY TRIED SOMETHING KNEW.

HE SURRENDERED.

YOU GO TO SLEEP CRYING

YOURSELF TO SLEEP, LITERALLY

CURSING GOD, CUSSING GOD

WITH THE WORDS YOU LEARNED

THAT DAY AT SCHOOL.

Reporter: LARRY BLOOM

WAS NINE YEARS OLD WHEN HIS

WORLD CAME CRASHING DOWN.

HIS PARENTS SEPARATED, AND

THAT SAME YEAR A RELATIVE

BEGAN TO PHYSICALLY AND

SEXUALLY ABUSE HIM.

LARRY BLAMED GOD.

I WAS PRAYING, OBVIOUSLY

AND NATURALLY, FOR GOD TO

BRING MY DAD BACK HOME AND

FOR THE ABUSE TO STOP.

WHEN DAD DIDN'T COME BACK

HOME AND GOT REMARRIED, THE

ABUSE KEPT GOING AND THE

ANGER KEPT GROWING.

I DECIDED AT AN EARLY AGE,

AT NINE, THAT GOD MAY NOT

EXIST.

Reporter: IN HIS TEEN

YEARS, LARRY STARTED TO NUMB

HIS PAIN.

I STARTED GAMBLING,

DRINKING ALCOHOL, AND

LOOKING AT PORNOGRAPHY, AND

I MADE L.S.D. AND SOLD IT AT

SCHOOL.

Reporter: AFTER HIGH

SCHOOL, LARRY SERVED TWO

YEARS IN THE ARMY AND TOPPED

STOPPED USING DRUGS.

BUT AFTER HE LEFT THE

SERVICE, HE BECAME A ROADIE

FOR A BAND AND DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL WERE READILY

AVAILABLE.

MY CAREER FED MY

ADDICTION, AND MY LIFESTYLE

FED MY ADDICTION, AND THEY

ALL JUST FED INTO EACH

OTHER.

IT WAS REALLY HARD TO BREAK

OUT OF THAT CYCLE DURING

THAT CAREER.

THERE WAS VERY LITTLE

ACCOUNTABILITY.

I DIDN'T HAVE TO DRIVE MUCH

WHEN I WAS ON THE ROAD

WORKING, SO I JUST CONTINUED

TO USE, DRINK.

AND THE DRUG ADDICTION JUST

WENT SPIRALLING OUT OF

CONTROL AGAIN.

Reporter: IN HIS 30s,

LARRY STOPPED TRAVELLING AND

TRIED TO SETTLE DOWN.

HIS MARRIED AND HAD A

DAUGHTER, BUT HIS ADDICTIONS

WERE STILL IN CONTROL.

THE THING I WAS LOOKING

FOR MOST WAS THE NEXT HIGH.

IT STARTED AS SOON AS I WOKE

UP IN THE MORNING.

Reporter: LARRY WAS

ARRESTED FOR NUMEROUS

D.U.I.s, AND SERVED SHORT

STINTS BEHIND BARS.

AFTER HIS THIRD ARREST, HIS

WIFE LEFT AND HIS FAMILY

COMPLETELY CUT TIES.

I DIDN'T WANT TREATMENT.

I DIDN'T WANT HELP.

I DIDN'T THINK THERE WAS

ANYTHING WRONG WITH ME.

I THOUGHT IT WAS EVERYBODY

ELSE'S PROBLEM AND NOT

MINE.

Reporter: IN SEPTEMBER

2001, LARRY WAS ARRESTED FOR

HIS SEVENTH D.U.I. AND WAS

HANDED A 14-YEAR PRISON

SENTENCE.

THE JUDGE TOLD ME, YOU

CAN FORGET ABOUT GETTING

BOND.

YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT GETTING

BAIL.

YOU'RE GOING TO PRISON.

I HAD BURNED ALL OF THE

BRIDGES.

AND I WAS FINALLY LEFT ALONE

WITH THE LORD.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAD

TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN YEARS, LARRY STARTED

TO PRAY.

HE ALSO STARTED READING THE

BIBLE.

I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT

GOD.

I HAD BEEN ATHEIST ALL OF MY

LIFE.

WHEN I STARTED TO READ THE

BIBLE, I SAID TO GOD, I WILL

READ EVERY WORD OF THIS.

AND I HAD READ THROUGH THE

WHOLE NEW TESTAMENT.

Reporter: AFTER READING

ABOUT THE LIFE AND TEACHINGS

OF JESUS, LARRY WANTED

MORE.

SO HE WENT TO A PRISON

CHURCH SERVICE, WHERE THE

PASTOR CHALLENGED THE

INMATES TO GIVE THEIR LIVES

TO GOD.

AND AT THE END OF THAT

SERMON, EVEN THOUGH I HAD

JUST HONED IN ON EVERY WORD

THAT PREACHER HAD SAID, I

WAS STILL RELUCTANT TO GO

FORWARD.

AND IN THAT SPLIT SECOND, I

THOUGHT, I'VE BEEN A

MILITARY POLICEMAN, I'VE

BEEN A STAGE HAND, I'VE

EXPERIENCED ALL OF THESE

OTHER THINGS, DRUG

ADDICTION, AND I'VE NEVER

TRIED THIS.

I WAS ONE OF THE LAST PEOPLE

TO GO FORWARD TO THE ALTER

CALL.

HE PUT ONE HAND IN THE

CENTER OF MY CHEST AND WIN

IN MY BACK, ANONE IN MY

BACK, AND HE STARTED TO

PRAY.

IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE TOOK

HONEY AND POURED IT DOWN THE

BACK OF MY NECK.

AND THEN I FELT THIS WARMTH

COME ALL OVER MY BACK.

AND THEN I FELT, I DON'T

CARE WHAT THIS IS, I WANT

MORE, GOD.

Reporter: LARRY SAYS

THAT DAY HE WAS IMMEDIATELY

DELIVERED FROM ALL OF HIS

ADDICTIONS.

AND HE ALSO GAINED THE

COURAGE TO FORGIVE HIS

CHILDHOOD ABUSER.

IT TOOK ME SEVERAL DAYS

OF PRAYER, AND ASKING THE

LORD TO HELP ME TO FORGIVE

HER.

I REALIZED, I WAS NEVER

GOING TO GROW AND FULLY

MATURE AS A PERSON UNTIL I

FOUND THE STRENGTH, SOMEHOW,

TO FORGIVE MY ABUSER.

Reporter: LARRY WAS IN

PRISON LESS THAN A YEAR,

WHEN THE JUDGE GAVE HIM A

SIX-YEAR HOME DETENTION.

IT WAS LATER REDUCED TO SIX

MONTHS.

THAT WAS DEFINITELY THE

FAVOR OF GOD.

THERE WAS NO WAY AN ATTORNEY

COULD HAVE WORKED THAT OUT.

TO GO FROM A SIX-YEAR

SENTENCE TO A SIX-MONTH

SENTENCE, THAT WAS GOD.

Reporter: AFTER HIS

DEGREE, LARRY EARNED A

DEGREE IN THEOLOGY.

TODAY HE IS STILL FREE FROM

HIS ADDICTIONS, AND HAS

RESTORED HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH HIS DAUGHTER.

HE IS ALSO A LICENSED

ADDICTION COUNSELLOR FOR THE

SALVATION ARMY.

I'M SURE THERE ARE YOUNG

PEOPLE OUT THERE, I'M SURE,

THINKING, OH, NO, NOT

ANOTHER GUY TALKING ABOUT

JESUS.

WHAT I WOULD SAY IS GET

AHOLD OF THE LORD BEFORE

MORE OF YOUR LIFE IS GONE.

GOD HAS DONE MIRACULOUS

THINGS IN MY LIFE IN SUCH A

SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

DON'T WAIT.

REACH OUT FOR HIM NOW.

Pat: THANKS, LARRY.

WHAT A ABUSIVE HAVE YOU

HAD?

WHAT PAIN, WHEN YOU WERE A

LITTLE CHILD, HAVE YOU GONE

THROUGH?

WHO HAS DONE SOMETHING TO

YOU?

WHO HAS HURT YOU OR ABUSED

YOU OR INSULTED YOU OR

TORMENTED YOU OR LOCKED YOU

IN A CLOSET, OR DONE ALL OF

THE AWFUL THINGS THAT PEOPLE

DO TO LITTLE CHILDREN?

HAS IT HAPPENED TO YOU?

AND HAVE YOU TRIED TO EASE

THE PAIN BY DRUGS OR BY ROCK

AND ROLL OR BY PARTYING OR

BY SEX?

NO ONE IS GOING TO EASE THE

PAIN.

THE ONLY ONE WHO IS GOING TO

EASE THE PAIN IS JESUS.

HE CAN MAKE YOUR LIFE NEW.

AND WHATEVER HAS HAPPENED

BEFORE, HE'LL WASH AWAY THE

PAIN AND GIVE YOU A BRAND

NEW HEART.

THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO

DO, THOUGH, IS FORGIVE.

YOU'VE GOT TO LET ALL OF

THAT STUFF GO.

AND IF YOU'LL DO IT, IF

YOU'LL PRAY WITH ME RIGHT

NOW, GOD ALMIGHTY WANTS TO

SET YOU FREE AND GIVE YOU A

BRAND NEW HOPE.

WHAT COULD BE BETTER?

LOVE, JOY, PEACE, HE'LL GIVE

IT ALL TO YOU RIGHT NOW.

PRAY WITH ME.

PRAY THESE WORDS FROM YOUR

HEART.

MEAN THEM, AND THE LORD WILL

HEAR.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU SUFFERED,

I KNOW YOU WERE BEATEN.

I KNOW YOU WERE SPIT ON.

I KNOW YOU WERE CURSED.

YOU WERE FALSELY ACCUSED.

I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO

YOU.

AND I KNOW THAT YOU ROSE

FROM THE DEAD TRIUMPHANT.

AND SO, JESUS, I COME TO YOU

NOW.

YOU KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED TO

ME.

HEAL IT, LORD.

I COME TO YOU AND GIVE YOU

ALL OF MY PAIN AND MY

SUFFERING.

I TURN IT ALL OVER TO YOU.

AND I FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE

HURT ME.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I

FORGIVE THEM.

THANK YOU, LORD FOR COMING

INTO MY HEART.

THANK YOU FOR TAKING OVER MY

LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME

JUST THEN, I WANT TO GIVE

YOU SOMETHING.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN HERE IS A C.D., 73

MINUTES OF A VERY

CONCENTRATED TEACHING.

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT YOU

JUST DID, WHAT WILL HAPPEN

NEXT, AND WHAT THE LORD HAS

FOR YOU.

ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF

JESUS.

ABOUT THE BAPTISM.

IT'S ALL IN HERE.

AND I'LL GIVE YOU THAT

FREE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

IN AND SAY, I PRAYED WITH

PAT AND I GAVE MY HEART TO

THE LORD.

THE PHONE CALL IS FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

HE'LL TAKE AWAY THE PAIN,

HE'LL HEAL THE SCARS, AND

HE'LL MAKE YOU A NEW

CREATURE.

IF ANYBODY IS IN CHRIST, HE

IS A NEW CREATURE.

DIAL THE PHONE.

AND TELL SOMEONE ON THE

OTHER LINE.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, I

PRAYED WITH THAT GUY ON TV.

1-800-759-0700.

HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

QUESTIONS FROM OUR VIEWERS.

PAT SAYS, "MY SON AND HIS

GIRLFRIEND LIVE WITH US AND

THEY'RE HAVING A BABY.

WHERE DO WE DRAW THE LINE

BETWEEN HELPING THEM AND

ENABLING THEM?"

PAT IS GOING TO ANSWER THAT

QUESTION AND MORE WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

MUSLIMS FUNDAMENTALISTS

CARRIED OUT A PLOT TO TAKE

OVER SOME SCHOOLS IN

BRITAIN.

GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATORS SAY

THERE WAS AN EFFECTIVE

TAKEOVER OF A NUMBER OF

SCHOOLS IN BIRMINGHAM.

THE REPORT FOUND A

COORDINATED, DELIBERATE, AND

SUSTAINED ACTION BY SEVERAL

PEOPLE TO INTRODUCE

INTOLERANT AND AGGRESSIVE

ISLAMIC VIEWS.

THAT RAISES FEARS THAT

STUDENTS COULD BE TURNED

INTO RADICALS.

BUT INVESTIGATORS DIDN'T

FIND EVIDENCE OF VIOLENT

EXTREMISM OR TERRORISM.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS DECLARED

COLORADO'S VOTER-APPROVED

GAY MARRIAGE BAN

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

JUDGE RAYMOND P.MOORE PUT

HIS RULING ON HOLD TO GIVE

THE STATE A CHANCE TO

APPEAL, POSSIBLY TO THE

SUPREME COURT.

BUT SOME CLERKS HAVE ALREADY

STARTED ISSUING MARRIAGE

LICENSES TO GAY COUPLES.

AND 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 "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, IT'S TIME

TO "BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

PAT, WHO SAYS, "NI SOMY SON

AND HIS GIRLFRIEND ARE

HAVING A BABY.

THEY'RE NOT MARRIED, AND MY

WIFE AND I ARE ARE BESIDE

OURSELVES.

IS THERE ANY SCRIPTURE, OR

YOUR ADVICE, ABOUT THEM

LIVING IN OUR HOUSE AND

SLEEPING TOGETHER.

AND THEY SAY THEY'RE WAITING

UNTIL THE BABY IS BORN

BEFORE DECIDING ABOUT

MARRIAGE.

IT SEEMS LIKE FORNICATION TO

US.

WHAT IS THE LI LINE TO

HELP, BUT NOT ENABLING.

IT SEEMS WE USED TO DATE,

GET MARRIED, LIVE TOGETHER,

AND THEN HAVE BABIES.

NOT SO MUCH THE ORDER THESE

DAYS."

Pat: YOU'RE RIGHT

THERE.

THE OLD STORY IS THE GIRL

WOULD SHOW UP ON THE

DOORSTEP WITH THE BABY, AND

THE HARSH FATHER WOULD SLAM

THE DOOR IN HER FACE AND SAY

GO FORTH, YOU STAINED

WOMAN.

LOOK, THAT KID IS GOING TO

BE YOUR GRANDCHILD.

AND IT'S NOT A QUESTION OF

THE FACT THAT YOU'RE NOW

TRYING TO KEEP THEM FROM

HAVING SEX. THEY'VE ALREADY

HAD SEX, AND THEY'RE GOING

TO HAVE A BABY.

SO IT SEEMS LIKE TO ME WHAT

YOU'VE GOING TO DO IS

WELCOME THEM AND SHOW THEM

THE LOVE OF GOD AND

ENCOURAGE THEM TO GET

MARRIED.

WHOEVER HEARD UNTIL THEY'RE

GOING TO WAIT UNTIL THE BABY

IS BORN.

Terry: THAT'S PRETTY

COMMON THESE DAYS.

Pat: YOU'RE GOING TO

WAIT UNTIL THE BABY IS

BORN?

WHAT'S THAT GOT TO DO WITH

IT?

ARE THEY GOING TO HAVE AN

ABORTION OR SOMETHING?

Terry: NO, I THINK SOME

KIDS WANT TO HAVE A

WEDDING.

IT IS LIKE THE WHOLE MORAL

LINE IS OUT OF ORDER.

AND HE IS SAYING THEY WANT

TO WAIT UNTIL THE BABY IS

BORN BEFORE DECIDING ABOUT

MARRIAGE.

Pat: WELL, THE TERM FOR

SOMEBODY WHO IS BORN OUT OF

WEDLOCK IS BASTARD.

YOU'RE GIVING THE CHILD

ILITC ILL ILL-LEGITIMACY.

DON'T YOU WANT THE CHILD TO

BE PART OF YOUR FAMILY.

Terry: OF COURSE THE

PARENTS DO, BUT IT IS THE

DAUGHTER AND SON --

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS

THE DAUGHTER.

BUT THEY'RE LIVING

TOGETHER.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

THEY'RE LIVING IN YOUR

HOUSE.

ARE YOU GOING TO THROW THEM

OUT?

AT THIS POINT, THE ANSWER IS

NO, YOU'RE NOT.

YOU'RE GOING TO TRY TO LOVE

THEM.

PRIOR TO THAT, BEFORE HAVING

CONCEPTION, YOU PROBABLY

WANTED TO SAY, WE'RE NOT

GOING TO CONDONE THIS.

IF THEY WERE LIVING TOGETHER

IN YOUR HOUSE, AND THERE

WEREN'T A BABY, YOU WOULD

SAY, I'M NOT GOING TO ALLOW

THIS.

YOU CAN'T DO THIS IN MY

HOUSE.

IT IS A TOUGH DILEMMA, BUT

MANY, MANY FAMILIES ARE

BEING FACED WITH IT.

BUT THE BIG THING NOW IS

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A

GRANDCHILD, AND YOU WANT TO

LOVE THAT GRANDCHILD.

IT IS NOT HIS FAULT OR HER

FAULT THAT THE MOTHER AND

FATHER HAVE MADE BAD CHOICES.

Terry: MORGAN SAYS,

"I'M STRUGGLING WITH MY

CAREER CHOICE.

I'M A TEACHER AND HAVEN'T

DONE ANYTHING ELSE.

IN ALL HONESTY, I DON'T LOVE

IT, AND BEING SINGLE, I

DON'T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY.

I KNOW ALL JOBS CAN BE

STRESSFUL, BUT AS

CHRISTIANS, ARE WE SUPPOSED

TO LIKE OUR JOBS, OR IS WORK

JUST WORK?"

Pat: I HIRED SOMEBODY

ONCE WHO HAD BEEN A LEADER

IN AN EDUCATIONAL

INSTITUTION.

AND I HAD A PERFORMANCE

REVIEW, AND I ASKED HIM TWO

QUESTIONS: FIRST OF ALL,

HAVE YOU GOT ENOUGH MONEY TO

DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO?

AND THE SECOND ONE IS: ARE

YOU HAVING FUN?

AND HE SAID, I'VE NEVER HAD

QUESTIONS LIKE THAT BEFORE.

IF YOU'RE NOT ENJOYING THE

WORK YOU'RE DOING, GO DO

SOMETHING ELSE.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, GO DO

SOMETHING ELSE.

SO YOU ARE TRAINED AS A

TEACHER, BUT -- WE HAVE

FOUND AT CBN, FOR EXAMPLE,

THAT THE PLANNED REPS ARE

KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS.

THEY'RE THE BEST BECAUSE

THEY KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH

PEOPLE AND THEY HAVE LEARNED

MOTHERING SKILLS.

ALL RIGHT, WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: THIS IS RON WHO

SAYS, "MY WIFE CHEATED ON MY

SEVERAL TIMES.

I TOOK HER BACK BECAUSE I

WAS DETERMINED TO STAY TRUE

TO OUR MARRIAGE VOWS.

RECENTLY SHE ASKED ME FOR A

DIVORCE.

OUR DIVORCE IS SUPPOSED TO

BE FINALIZED SOON, BUT NOW

SHE IS CONTESTING THE

SEPARATION AGREEMENT THAT WE

SIGNED AND WAS NOTARIZED

MONTHS AGO.

SHE NOW WANTS TO GO TO

COURT.

DO I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE

LAW SAYS WE'RE DIVORCED TO

BEGIN DATING, OR CAN I DATE

NOW?

I'M READY TO MOVE ON WITH MY

LIFE."

Pat: BY ALL MEANS, MOVE

ON.

NO, YOU CAN'T START DATING

NOW.

IF I WERE YOU, YOU SIGNED A

SEPARATION AGREEMENT, AND

TAKE IT TO COURT AND FORCE

IT.

YOUR WIFE HAS CLEARLY BROKEN

THE MARRIAGE VOWS.

SHE DOESN'T WANT TO LIVE

WITH YOU.

AND YOUR MARRIAGE IS OVER.

AND SO YOU'VE RECOGNIZED

THAT FACT, BUT DON'T JUMP

THE GUN.

GET THE THING DONE.

OTHERWISE SHE IS GOING TO

WIND UP CHARGING YOU WITH

ADULTERY, AND SHE'LL GET A

CONCESSION IN THE COURT THAT

WILL HURT YOU.

SO JUST KEEP YOUR ZIPPER

WHERE IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE.

ALL RIGHT, NEXT QUESTION.

Terry: I'LL WRITE THAT

ONE DOWN.

OKAY, WELL, THANK YOU FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR THAT TODAY.

WE HAVE SOMETHING EXCITING

TO SHOW YOU.

KIDS HERE IN AMERICA ARE

ENJOYING THEIR SUMMER

BREAKS, SCHOOL IS STILL IN

SESSION IN PLACES LIKE

THAILAND.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO SHED A

TEAR FOR THESE KIDS BECAUSE

THEY JUST GOT A FRONT-ROW

SEAT TO A PREMIER OF

"SUPERBOOK."

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: AFTER A

SUCCESSFUL DAILY RUN ON

THAILAND'S CARTOON CLUB

CHANNEL IN MAY AND JUNE,

"SUPERBOOK" IS NOW ON THE

ROAD, REACHING CHILDREN IN

LOCAL SCHOOLS.

THE FIRST EVENTS WERE HELD

AT TWO OF CHANG MI'S LARGEST

SCHOOLS, AND MORE THAN 1800

GRADE SCHOOL STUDENTS

ATTENDED TO WATCH A GIANT

ADVENTURE.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT

"SUPERBOOK" CAME TO MY

SCHOOL.

I WAS SO EXCITED, THAT

DURING OUR CHAPEL TIME

"SUPERBOOK" GAME TO TEACH US

ABOUT JESUS.

I LIKE "SUPERBOOK"

BECAUSE IT IS FUN AND IT

TEACHES GOOD THINGS.

Reporter: GIZMO ALSO

MADE AN APPEARANCE WITH

"SUPERBOOK" AMBASSADOR KAREN

KAY.

THEY DANCED TO THE TUNE OF

THE SALVATION POEM, WITH ALL

OF THE KIDS SINGING ALONG.

THE CHILDREN ALL RECEIVED

GIFTS, COLORFUL STICKERS AND

NOTEBOOKS WITH "SUPERBOOK"

INFORMATION.

KAREN KAY SHARED AN

ENCOURAGING MESSAGE ABOUT

JESUS, AND 361 CHILDREN

PRAYED THE SALVATION

PRAYER.

"SUPERBOOK" IS BACK ON THE

AIR ON THE CARTOON CLUB

CHANNEL IN A NEW TIME SLOT,

SINCE JULY 15th.

AND THE "SUPERBOOK" SCHOOL

TOURS WILL CONTINUE IN OTHER

COMMUNITIES AROUND

THAILAND.

Terry: THAT "SUPERBOOK"

PREMIER WAS IN CHANG MI,

THAILAND, AND SO MANY

CHILDREN HAD THE OPPORTUNITY

TO HEAR, FOR THE FIRST TIME,

A GOSPEL STORY.

WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR

MAKING THAT POSSIBLE.

"SUPERBOOK" IS GOING TO BE

TAKING THE MESSAGE OF THE

GOSPEL TO THE WORLD, TO THE

CHILDREN OF THE WORLD.

WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO BE

A PART OF THAT.

THERE IS A WAY TO DO THAT,

AND AT THE SAME TIME BLESS

YOUR OWN CHILDREN,

GRANDCHILDREN, NEIGHBORHOOD

KIDS, WITH THE SAME KIND OF

QUALITY PROGRAMMING THESE

KIDS ARE SEEING AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND THAT IS TO JOIN THE

"SUPERBOOK" CLUB.

BUT DO IT TODAY.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THIS.

HERE IS OUR LATEST ONE, THE

STORY OF JOB.

SO YOU'LL GET THIS ONE FOR

YOU AND TWO EXTRAS TO GIVE

AWAY WHEN YOU CALL RIGHT

NOW.

UP NEXT, A GRANDMOTHER IS

DIAGNOSED WITH A HIGHLY

CONTAGIOUS INFECTION.

I DIDN'T WANT MY FAMILY

TO GET WHAT I HAD.

AND THOSE WERE VERY LONELY

TIMES.

BECAUSE MY FAMILY IS MY

LIFE.

Terry: WATCH HOW THIS

WOMAN WAS HEALED IN AN

INSTANT, AFTER THIS.

Pat: METHASILIN --

MERSA, AN INFECTION.

IT IS SOMETIMES CALLED A

SUPER BUG.

IT AFFECTS VITAL ORGANS.

IT CAN LEAD TO SEPSIS,

FLESH-EATING PNEUMONIA, AND

EVEN DEATH.

IT CAN ALSO BE SPREAD BY

TOUCHING A PERSON WHO HAS

IT.

THAT'S WHY LORELLA DAVIS WAS

DEVASTATED WHEN SHE WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH MERSA.

BUT NOT FOR LONG.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENED.

I HAD BETWEEN 13 AND 16

BOILS ON MY CHEST.

I WENT WITH MY HUSBAND, IN

TO HAVE HIS CHECKUP.

MY DOCTOR WAS THERE, AND I

ASKED HER IF SHE HAD

ANYTHING FOR THESE BOILS.

THEY WERE PRETTY OOZING.

AND SHE SAID THOSE ARE NOT

BOILS.

THAT'S MERSA.

AND SHE SAYS ANY TIME YOU

GET A SCRATCH OR ANYTHING,

YOU'LL HAVE A BOUT OF THIS

FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

I THOUGHT, I DIDN'T WANT MY

FAMILY TO GET WHAT I HAD.

AND THOSE WERE VERY LONELY

TIMES BECAUSE NI FAMIL MY

FAMILY IS MY LIFE.

AND NOT GETTING TO BE AROUND

MY FAMILY, IT WAS REALLY

HARD.

I SAID, LORD, ALL OF MY

FAMILY IS GOING TO BE HERE

FOR CHRISTMAS, AND I WANT TO

BE HERE, TOO.

I SAID, PLEASE RAISE MY

LEVEL OF FAITH TO THE POINT

OF HEALING.

AND IT WAS ABOUT TIME FOR

"THE 700 CLUB," SO I ASKED

THE LORD TO LET THEM HAVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE FOR ME.

AND THEY CAME ON AND THEY

SAID --

Pat: THERE IS SOMEONE

WITH A BLOOD CONDITION.

IT IS LIKE AN FECTION I AN

INFECTION IN YOUR BLOOD.

AND GOD IS PURIFYIN CURING

THAT RIGHT NOW.

I PUT MY HANDS ON THE

TELEVISION, AND I SAID, I

ACCEPT THAT.

IT'S MINE.

AND I FELT THE LORD AROUND

ME.

THERE IS SO MUCH LOVE.

IT IS LIKE HE WRAPS YOU IN A

BLANKET OF LOVE.

THERE IS NO LOVE ON THIS

EARTH THAT IS LIKE THAT.

HE CAN DO AWAY WITH ALL OF

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAID.

AND I TOLD THE DOCTORS, AND

HE DONE A REPORT, AND HE

SAID THERE IS NO STAPH.

AND I SAID, NO STAPH?

AND HE SAID, NO STAPH.

THANK THE LORD.

HE SAW TO IT THAT I WAS WITH

MY FAMILY FOR CHRISTMAS.

WHEN YOU HAVE THIS DISEASE,

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE.

AND THE ENEMY IS ALWAYS

TRYING TO TELL YOU, YOU

BETTER GI GET OBITUARY

DONE.

GET BEHIND ME, SATAN,

BECAUSE GOD IS BEHIND ME.

DON'T GIVE UP.

BECAUSE HE HEARS YOUR CRY.

HE IS WILLING TO DO IT.

YOU'VE JUST GOT TO GET YOUR

FAITH UP THERE AND BELIEVE.

Pat: WHAT A SHOUT OF

TRIUMPH.

JUST BELIEVE IN THE LORD.

MERSA CAN'T STAND AGAINST

THE POWER OF GOD.

I SPEND A LOT OF TIME WHEN

I'M PRAYING, THINKING ABOUT

GOD, HOW GREAT HE IS.

AND I'M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND

BECAUSE THIS UNIVERSE IS SO

ENORMOUS.

AND THIS EARTH WE'RE ON,

IT'S JUST A LITTLE FLASHBACK

IN THE MIDDLE OF A GIGANTIC

UNIVERSE.

AND YET THE GOD WE SERVE

CONTROLS IT ALL AND HE MADE

IT ALL.

AND SO SOME LITTLE BUG, LIKE

STAPHYLOCOCCUS AURIUS -- OF

COURSE THE LORD CAN HEAL

THAT.

THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE

WITH GOD.

HE BROUGHT THE WHOLE

UNIVERSE INTO BEING.

AND HIS NAME -- HIS NAME,

YOU KNOW, IS YAWAY, WHICH

MEANS IN HEBREW, HE WHO

CAUSES EVERYTHING TO BE.

HE IS THE ONE WHO CAUSES

EVERYTHING ELSE TO BE.

THAT'S HIS NAME.

Terry: THIS IS KATHRYN,

AND SHE LIVES IN NEBRASKA,

AND SHE STEPPED ON A DOG

BALL AND INJURED HER LEFT

FOOT.

A PIECE OF THE BONE BROKE

OFF, AND A TENDON WAS

STRETCHED.

SHE WAS REQUIRED TO WEAR A

MEDICAL BOOT FOR A MONTH AND

TAKE PHYSICAL THERAPY.

THE FOOT NEVER REALLY

HEALED.

THERE WAS A CON CONSTANT,

ACHY FEELING WITH A SHARP

PAIN.

ONE DAY WHILE WATCHING THIS

SHOW, YOU SAID, THERE IS A

LEFT FOOT, AND THE BONE IS

OUT OF PLACE.

THE BONES ARE GOING TO MOVE

AND YOU'LL BE COMPLETELY

PAIN-FREE.

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD FOR

HERSELF, AND HER FOOT AND

ANKLE ARE COMPLETELY

PAIN-FREE.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, YOU BROUGHT THE

STARS INTO BEING, THE

GALAXIES INTO BEING, THE

WHOLE UNIVERSE.

WE CAN'T CONCEIVE OF YOUR

POWER, IT'S SO GREAT.

AND, LORD, FIXING A HUMAN

BODY IS NOTHING FOR YOU, FOR

YOU MADE US.

LORD, THERE ARE PEOPLE IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE

HURTING.

THERE IS SOMEBODY RIGHT NOW

WHO HAS A LUNG FUNGUS, AND

YOU'VE BEEN COUGHING AND

COUGHING AND COUGHING, AND

THE DOCTORS HAVEN'T

DIAGNOSED IT PROPERLY.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, RIGHT

NOW THERE IS A BURNING IN

YOUR LUNGS, AND YOU ARE ARE

HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS A MAN,

AND YOU HAVE AN ISSUE WITH

THE BEARD OF YOUR FACE.

IT IS LIKE AN INFECTION OF

SOME KIND.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: A LEFT FOOT IS

DRAGGING.

IT MAY HAVE BEEN A STROKE,

BUT IT HAS TWISTED YOUR LEFT

FOOT.

RIGHT NOW THAT FOOT IS GOING

TO STRAIGHTEN OUT, AND THERE

WILL BE POWER COMING THROUGH

YOUR WHOLE BODY, IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

Terry: AND A RIGHT

ELBOW THAT HAS BEEN

TWISTED.

YOU HAD A FALL OR ACCIDENT

OF SOME KIND, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT AND PUTTING IT

BACK IN PLACE FOR YOU.

Pat: LORD, FOR ALL IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE CRYING

OUT TO YOU, HEAR THEIR

PRAYERS AND MEET THEIR

NEEDS, AND MAY THE BLESSING

OF GOD BE UPON THEM IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

I WANT TO LEAVE YOU NOW WITH

THE POWER MINUTE FROM

PROVERBS 3: 5-6: "TRUST IN

THE LORD WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, AND DO NOT LEAN ON

YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.

IN ALL YOUR WAYS,

ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE WILL

MAKE YOUR PATHS STRAIGHT."

FOR TERRY AND WENDY AND ALL

OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON.

TOMORROW, A STORY YOU HAVE

TO SEE TO BELIEVE.

A CHILD WHO COULDN'T SWALLOW

HIS OWN FOOD FOR 16 YEARS,

WAS MIRACULOUSLY HEALED.

THAT'S FRIDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

UNTIL THEN, BYE-BYE.
