COMING UP...AN EXPLOSIVE

REPORT FROM CBN NEWS.

WE'RE GOING TO LEARN

WHETHER THE FIRST AMENDMENT

HAS A FUTURE IN AMERICA.

Wendy: HEAR HOW OUR

FREEDOMS ARE BEING

TRAMPLED.

PLUS, THE BEAR OF BAYLOR.

WHEN EVERYBODY IS

CLICKING, WE FEEL LIKE WE'VE

DONE WHAT WE NEED TO DO.

Wendy: MEET THIS HEAD

COACH.

I'M NOT INTIMIDATED BY MY

CIRCUMSTANCES.

Wendy: PLUS...A LIVE

PERFORMANCE FROM TASHA

COBBS, ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THE SECRETARY OF STATE, JOHN

KERRY, IS IN THE CROSSHAIRS,

AND THEY'RE AIMING AT HIM

BECAUSE HE DEMANDED AN

IMMEDIATE CEASE-FIRE WHICH

WOULD HAVE HELPED HAMAS, AND

ISRAEL'S KANSET HAD VOTED IT

DOWN.

MEMBERS ON BOTH PARTIES ARE

COMING TO THE DEFENSE OF

ISRAEL.

AND ONE MORE EXAMPLE OF WHAT

SEEMS TO BE THANKLESS

FOREIGN POLICY.

Terry: WELL, ISRAEL

ISN'T STOPPING, AND PRIME

MINISTER IS NETANYAHU IS

WARNING THAT FIGHTING MAY GO

ON FOR A LONG TIME.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE POUNDING

OF GAZA OVERNIGHT HITTING

KEY HAMAS TARGETS FOLLOWING

THE KILLING OF 10 ISRAELI

SOLDIERS, NINE OF THEM IN

TWO SEPARATE ATTACKS INSIDE

ISRAEL.

THE LATEST ISRAELI FALTS

FATALITIES MAKE IT LIKELY

THAT ISRAEL WILL PUSH

HARDER, TO DISMANTEL MAMS,

MANTEL HAMAS, LIKE THE MANY

TUNNELS.

PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU

TOLD THE NATION TO PREPARE

FOR A PROLONGED BATTLE.

WE WILL NOT COMPLETE THE

MISSION, WE WILL NOT

COMPLETE THE OPERATION,

WITHOUT DISMANTLING THE

TUNNELS.

Reporter: SURVEYS SHOW

THAT A BIG MAJORITY OF

ISRAELIS SUPPORT THE WAR

AGAINST HAMAS.

INTELLIGENCE MINISTER UFAL

STANAGE SAYS ISRAEL WANTS A

FULL DISARMAMENT.

WE HAVE TO STOP THE

KILLING OF ISRAELIS AND

PALESTINIANS, BY

DEMILITARIZING GAZA, AND BY

REJECTING ANY TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION THAT IS

OPERATING FROM GAZA.

Reporter: ISRAEL

TARGETED MORE THAN 70 HAMAS

TERRORIST SITES, INCLUDING

TWO COMMAND CENTERS, FOUR

WEAPON STORAGE SITES, AND

THE FULL ROUTE OF A TERROR

TUNNEL SHOWN IN HIS

FOOTAGE.

AND ISRAEL HIT A COMMANDERS

HOUSE, AND GOVERNMENT

BUILDINGS, AND HAMAS

SATELLITE STATIONS.

AND EUROPEAN ATTEMPTS TO

IMPOSE A CEASE-FIRE, LED BY

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY, HAS FAILED SO FAR.

THE U.S. ADMINISTRATION IS

ANGRY ABOUT CHARGES THAT

KERRY HAS TRIED TO RESCUE

HAMAS AT ISRAEL'S DEFENSE.

WE HAVE STRONGLY

SUPPORTED ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO

D.V.D DEFEND ITSELF AGAINST

ROCKETS AND TUNNELS.

AND WE HAVE ENGAGED IN

SENSITIVE NEGOTIATIONS.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO,

AND WILL CONTINUE TO SET THE

RECORD STRAIGHT WHEN ANYONE

DISTORTS THE FACT.

Reporter: BUT THE

FORMER ISRAELI AMBASSADOR TO

EGYPT SAYS ISRAEL IS

CONFUSED AT THE WHITE HOUSE

SUPPORT FOR THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD, WHICH INCLUDES

HAMAS.

KERRY STARTED THE KIND OF

MATCH-MAKING BETWEEN ISRAEL

AND HAMAS, AND PUT HAMAS AND

ISRAEL ON THE SAME LEVEL.

NO, YOU CANNOT PUT A

DEMOCRATIC STATE LIKE ISRAEL

AND AN ISLAMIC TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION AS HAMAS ON THE

SAME LEVEL.

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

AMERICA SHOULD BE

PRO-ISRAELI AND SAY IT

LOUDLY.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

PRESSURE IS BUILDING NOT

JUST ON ISRAEL AS THE

PALESTINIAN DEATH TOLL

GROWS, BUT ALSO ON THE

ADMINISTRATION.

CONGRESS IS ASKING HARD

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY ISRAEL

HAS PUSHED TO STOP DEFENDING

ITSELF FROM ONGOING

ATTACKS.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

THE ISRAELI-GAZA BORDER.

Pat: OUR REPORTER,

GEORGE THOMAS, HE IS ALWAYS

IN THE HOT SPOTS OF THE

WORLD.

HE ARRIVED IN GAZA TODAY,

AND JUST MINUTES AFTER HE

WAS FILMING NEAR A MOSQUE,

AN ISRAELI MISSILE HIT A

FIELD BESIDE HIM.

JOHN JESSUP BRINGS US MORE

ON THAT STORY FROM OUR NEWS

BUREAU IN WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: PAT, FIRST OFF,

WE'RE HAPPY TO REPORT THAT

GEORGE AND HIS CAMERAMEN ARE

BOTH FINE.

THAT CLOSE MISSILE STRIKE IS

PART OF ISRAEL'S STEPPED UP

ATTACK AGAINST HAMS.

HERE IS GEORGE NOW.

George: WITHIN HOURS OF

PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU'S

PRONOUNCEMENT LAST NIGHT ON

NATIONAL TELEVISION, ISRAEL

PICKED OUT 60 TARGETS

OVERNIGHT, INCLUDING SENIOR

HAMAS LEADERSHIP.

WE'VE COME INTO GAZA THIS

MORNING, AND THEY TALK ABOUT

THEY NEVER EXPERIENCED

ANYTHING LIKE THIS LAST

NIGHT.

IT WAS INTENSE IN GAZA.

IN THE THREE WEEKS' OF

ISRAEL'S OFFENSIVE, LAST

NIGHT WAS THE BIGGEST.

WHAT THIS MEANS GOING

FORWARD, NO ONE KNOWS.

GAZANS THAT HAVE I SPOKEN TO

SAY ISRAEL HAS STEPPED UP

THE OFFENSIVE, AND TAKEN IT

TO A WHOLE DIFFERENT STATE.

AS WE DROVE INTO GAZA, WE

SAW PEOPLE TRYING TO GO

ABOUT THEIR LIVES IN A

NORMAL WAY AS POSSIBLE.

SHOPS WERE OPEN, AND PEOPLE

WERE DRIVING OUT ON THE

STREETS, BUT THERE IS A

SENSE TODAY THAT ISRAEL HAS

STEPPED UP ITS MILITARY

OFFENSIVE TO A WHOLE NEW

LEVEL.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO BRING

YOU STORIES FROM THE GAZA

STRIP ON "700 CLUB" ON

CLINTON'S, AS WELL AS ON

Facebook AND TWITTER.

I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN ME FOR

THOSE REPORTS.

I'M GEORGE THOMAS, REPORTING

REPORTING FOR CBN NEWS FROM

THE GAZA STRIP.

HERE AT HOME, JOHN KERRY

HIGHLIGHTED THE PLIGHT OF

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI MONDAY

AS HE PRESENTED A STATE

REPORT ON INTERNATIONAL

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

HE SAID SAEED ABEDINI

REMAINS IN PRISON.

THE IRANIAN AUTHORITIES

SENTENCED HIM TO EIGHT YEARS

BEHIND BARS SIMPLY BECAUSE

OF HIS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

KERRY WENT ON TO SAY WE WILL

CONTINUE TO CALL FOR HIS

RELEASE, AND WE WILL

CONTINUE TO WORK FOR IT.

JAY SECULO, FROM THE

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND

JUSTICE, SAYS THEY ARE

THANKFUL FOR COMMITMENT TO

WORK FOR ABEDINI'S RELEASE.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

WELL, THE GROUND ZERO CROSS

WILL BE DISPLAYED AT THE

NATIONAL SEPTEMBER 11TH

MUSEUM.

A COURT VOTED TO BLOCK THE

APPEAL.

THE RULING REPRESENTS A

SIGNIFICANT CON TUTIONAL

VICTORY.

CONSTITUTIONAL MOVE.

CONGRESS IS TAKING ON THE

VETERANS AFFAIRS HEALTH CARE

SCANDAL BY INTRODUCING A

BILL TO INFORM THE

DEPARTMENT, AND PROVIDE IT

WITH AT LEAST $17 BILLION.

IT SETS ASIDE $10 BILLION TO

FUND HEALTH CARE FOR

VETERANS OUTSIDE THE V.A.

SYSTEM, AND PAYS FOR PRIVATE

DOCTORS TO PAY FOR VETERANS

TO SEE DOCTORS WHO HAVE BEEN

WAITING A LONG TIME.

AND THE V.A. WOULD GET

$5 BILLION FOR MORE DOCTORS

AND 27 NEW CLINICS AROUND

THE COUNTRY.

GUNS HELP THE WAR, AND SO

IS TAKING CARE OF THE MEN

AND WOMEN WHO USE THOSE

WEAPONS AND WHO FIGHT OUR

BATTLES.

IN ORDER FOR IT TO PASS,

THE HOUSE AND SENATE HAS TO

APPROVE THE BILL BEFORE

THEY'RE SCHEDULED TO LEAVE

FOR ITS FIVE-WEEK RECESS ON

THURSDAY.

PAT?

Pat: AS IT HAS BEEN

SAID, THE CHANCES OF GETTING

THAT THROUGH ARE PROBABLY

PRETTY GOOD.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU'VE GOT A

SOCIALIST LIKE BERNIE

SANDERING FIGHTIN SANDERS

FIGHTING FOR IT, YOU CAN

FIGURE THE DEMOCRATS WILL

COME ON BOARD, AND SO WILL

THE REPUBLICANS.

THIS SYSTEM IS SO INCREDIBLY

MIRED I IN DEMOCRACY, AND

THE SYSTEM IS SO BROKEN, I

CONCUR THAT ALL OF THE V.A.

HOSPITALS SHOULD BE

TRANSFORMED TO CIVILIAN

HOSPITALS.

AND THEY SHOULD BE RUN BY

CIVILIAN HOSPITAL

ADMINISTRATORS.

AND THE VETERANS SHOULD GET

VOUCHERS TO PAY FOR THEIR

HEALTH CARE AND GET THEM OUT

OF THIS INCREDIBLY

BUREAUCRATIC MESS.

THEY'VE BEEN HUMILIATED.

THEY'VE BEEN FORCED TO

WAIT.

A NUMBER HAVE DIED BECAUSE

OF THE WAIT.

AND THERE HAS BEEN

MISMANAGEMENT ON HIGH

ORDER.

THIS BILL ALSO INCLUDES THE

PERMISSION TO FIRE PEOPLE.

JUST IMAGINE, THOSE WORKERS

IN WASHINGTON, THEY CAN DO

ANYTHING THEY WANT TO AND

CAN'T GET FIRED.

YOU NEED AN ACT OF CONGRESS

TO FIRE ONE.

JOHN?

John: PAT, CLEANUP IS

UNDER WAY AFTER A MASSIVE

STORM SYSTEM BROUGHT HAVOC

ACROSS MUCH OF THE COUNTRY.

A RARE TORNADO SLAMMED THE

SUBURBS OF MASSACHUSETTS,

AND IT IS THE FIRST REPORTED

LIKE THAT IN SOME 50 YEARS.

THE TWISTER LEFT A WIDE PATH

OF DESTRUCTION, BUT

FORTUNATELY NO REPORTS OF

DEATH.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: REVERE,

MASSACHUSETTS, LOOKS MORE

LIKE A WAR ZONE AFTER A

TORNADO TORE THROUGH THE

CITY ON MONDAY.

THE STORM CARVED OUT A

TWO-MILE PATH OF

DESTRUCTION.

LEFT DAMAGED BUILDINGS AND

CARS, TOPPLED TREES, AND

MORE THAN A DOZEN HOMES LEFT

UNINHABITABLE.

DEVASTATION.

I'VE BEEN HERE AND GREW UP

HERE.

WE HAVE NO CLOTHES,

NOTHING.

IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN

HERE.

IT IS NOT OKLAHOMA.

Reporter: THE NATIONAL

WEATHER SERVICE SAYS THE

RARE TORNADO WAS AN EF-2

WITH A MAXIMUM SPEED OF

120 MILES PER HOUR.

LUCKILY NO ONE WAS KILLED.

MATERIAL STUFF IS

MATERIAL STUFF, BUT PEOPLE

ARE PEOPLE.

AND I'M GLAD EVERYBODY IS

OKAY.

Reporter: FROM THE EAST

COAST TO THE WEST, MATTER

NATURE HAS LEF MOTHER

NATURE HAS LEFT ITS MARK.

LOOKS LIKE A WAR ZONE TO

ME.

I'VE BEEN IN VIETNAM, AND I

HAVEN'T SEEN IT AS BAD AS

THIS.

THIS IS AS WORST I'VE SEEN

IT IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

Reporter: A TORNADO WAS

ALSO REPORTED IN

CONNECTICUT, AS WELL AS THIS

ONE ON A CORN FIELD ON A

FARM IN COLORADO.

ONE AT LEAST TWO TWISTERS

THAT TOUCHED DOWN IN THE

DENVER, METRO AREA ON

MONDAY.

IN NEVADA, HEAVY RAINS

CAUSED MASSIVE FLOODING,

PROMPTING ROAD CLOSURES.

MEANWHILE, IN SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA, PEOPLE ARE

DEALING WITH THE AFTERMATH

OF A FREAK STRIKE OF

LIGHTNING AT VENICE BEACH.

A 20-YEAR-OLD WAS SWIMMING

IN THE WATER WHEN HE WAS

KILLED BY THE BOLT.

MORE THAN A DOZEN OTHERS

WERE INJURED.

IT WAS A FLASH, AND IT

SOUNDED LIKE A BOMB WENT

OFF.

I KNEW IT STRUCK VERY

CLOSE.

Reporter: TODAY MANY

ARE HOPING FOR CLEARER SKIES

AND CALMER WEATHER.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

John: PAT, SOME WILD

SUMMER WEATHER.

Pat: WELL, IT IS CRAZY,

BUT THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

IT IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.

I DON'T, RIGHT NOW, ATTACH

ANY PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE

TO THE FACT WE HAVE GOT SOME

TORNADOES.

A FEW YEARS AGO, I USED TO

BE A JOGGER, AND THE MANTRA

THAT WAS THEN LIC GIVEN TO

US WAS L.S.D., LONG, SLOW,

DISTANCE.

THE IDEA WAS IF YOU COULD DO

A 10-MINUTE MILE, WHICH

WASN'T FAST, BUT IF YOU

COULD DO A COUPLE OF MILES

IN 20 MINUTES, YOU WOULD

HAVE ALL OF THE

CARDIOVASCULAR WORK YOU

NEED.

NOW A NEW STUDY HAS COME OUT

WHICH PRETTY MUCH CONFIRMS

WHAT US OLD FOLKS USED TO

DO.

JOHN?

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT, JUST A LITTLE BIT OF

RUNNING, EVEN AT A VERY SLOW

PACE, MAY HELP YOU LIVE

LONGER.

RUNNING AROUND FIVE TO 10

MINUTES A DAY CAN BE VERY

GOOD FOR YOUR HEART.

AND RUNNING CAN CUT YOUR

RISK OF DYING FROM OTHER

CAUSES AS WELL.

EVEN IF YOU CAN'T RUN EVERY

DAY, RESEARCHERS FOUND JUST

RUNNING ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK

WAS STILL GOOD FOR YOU.

AND IF YOU'RE NOT USED TO

RUNNING, RESEARCHERS SUGGEST

BY WALKING FIRST AND BUILD

UP GRADUALLY FROM THERE.

PAT, I'M TRAINING FOR MY

THIRD MARATHON, AND RAN

12 MILES THIS WEEKEND, BUT

SOMETHING TELLS ME YOU WOULD

PREFER RIDING YOUR HORSE?

Pat: I'LL LET THE HORSE

DO THE WORK.

THERE IS ENOUGH EXERCISE IN

THERE.

THANK THE LORD IT HAS COOLED

DOWN.

IT HAS BEEN SO HOT IT IS

TOUGH ON HIM AND TOUGH ON

THE RIDER.

BUT TODAY IS AN ABSOLUTE

GLORIOUS DAY IN THIS PART OF

THE WORLD.

I HOPE YOU'LL BE HAPPY TO

HAVE ME ABOARD.

TERRY?

Terry: I HAVE A

QUESTION: CAN YOU BE A

CHRISTIAN AND A BUSINESSMAN

AT THE SAME TIME?

IN COLORADO, THE ANSWER IS

NO.

I THINK THIS STATE HAS

MADE IT VERY CLEAR.

ALL I CAN SAY IS WHAT THAT

LOOKS LIKE TO ME IS

SOMETHING VERY FRIGHTENING.

Terry: YOU WON'T

BELIEVE WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN IF YOU DARE TO STAND

FOR YOUR FAITH, SO STAY

TUNED.

Pat: FOLKS, WE LIVE IN

A STRANGE ERA.

IT USED TO BE WE HAD CERTAIN

FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS THAT WERE

BASED ON THE BIBLE, AND THE

BIBLE WAS THE RULE OF FAITH

AND PRACTICE, AND OUR LAWS

REFLECTED OUR BIBLICAL

ROOTS.

AND SOCIETY WAS STABLE, AND

PEOPLE KNEW WHO THEY WERE

AND WHERE THEY STOOD, AND

THINGS WERE OKAY.

NOW WE'VE TURNED IT UP SIDE

DOWN, AND WHAT THE BIBLE

CALLS AN ABOMINATION IS NOW

A PROTECTED CIVIL RIGHT.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU

FOUND OUT YOU WERE BREAKING

THE LAW BY HOLDING ON TO

YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS?

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO THE

CHRISTIAN OWNER OF A

COLORADO BAKERY.

WHAT WAS HIS CRIME?

HE WOULDN'T BAKE A CAKE FOR

A SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

CELEBRATION.

AND AS MARK MARTIN REPORTS,

HIS STORY ISN'T OVER YET.

Mark: THE SIGN ON THE

DOOR READS, "CELEBRATING 20

YEARS OF GREAT CAKES."

DURING THAT TIME, LAKEWOOD'S

MASTER CAKE SHOP HAS CREATED

MASTERPIECES TO KEEP

COSTUMERS FROM COMING BACK.

FROM COOKIES AND CUPCAKES,

TO SIGNATURE CAKES.

CHECK OUT THE MOUNTAIN

LANDSCAPE ON THIS ONE.

JACK AND HIS DAUGHTER, LISA,

HAVE TRANSFORMED THEIR BAKE

CARRBAKERY INTO A STUDIO,

ALL OF IT, HE SAYS, INSPIRED

AND MOTIVATED BY HIS FAITH

IN JESUS CHRIST.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

I THINK ABOUT THROUGHOUT THE

DAY, WHEN I WAKE UP AND GO

TO WORK, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT

I'M DOING IS PLEASING TO

HIM.

I HONOR HIM AND HIS WORD

BECAUSE THAT IS THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING.

Mark: JACK'S CHRISTIAN

FAITH LANDED HIM IN TROUBLE

WITH THE LAW.

HIS CRIME: ADHERING TO HIS

BIBLICAL BELIEF THAT

MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN ONE MAN

AND ONE WOMAN.

IN 2012, A HOMOSEXUAL COUPLE

SUED JACK AFTER HE DECLINED

TO MAKE A CAKE TO CELEBRATE

THEIR MARRIAGE.

AN ADMINISTRATIVE JUDGE

RULED AGAINST HIM, AND THE

COLORADO CIVIL RIGHTS

COMMISSION AGREED.

THE COMMISSION STATED JACK'S

REFUSAL WENT AGAINST THE

STATE'S PUBLIC ACCOMMODATION

LAW.

IT REQUIRES BUSINESSES TO

SERVE COSTUMERS REGARDLESS

OF THEIR SEXUAL

ORIENTATION.

ONE MEMBER OF THE CIVIL

RIGHTS COMMISSION SAID, "I

CAN BELIEVE ANYTHING I WANT,

BUT IF I'M GOING TO DO

BUSINESS HERE, I OUGHT TO

NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST

PEOPLE."

I DIDN'T DISCRIMINATE

AGAINST ANYBODY.

I CHOSE NOT TO MAKE CAKES

FOR SAME-SEX WEDDINGS.

I TOLD DAVID AND CHARLIE

WHEN THEY CAME IN, I WOULD

SELL THEM COOKIES AND

BROWNIES AND BIRTHDAY CAKES,

I JUST DON'T DO THE SAME-SEX

WEDDING CAKE.

I DID NOT DISCRIMINATE

AGAINST THEM, JUST THAT

EVENT.

I CHOSE NOT TO PARTICIPATE

IN IT.

Reporter: JACK'S

ATTORNEY, NICOLE MARTIN,

SAYS THE COMMISSION VIOLATED

JACK'S FIRST AMENDMENT

RIGHTS, AND SHE HAS TAKEN

THE CASE TO THE COLORADO

COURT OF APPEALS.

THE CIVIL RIGHTS

COMMISSION'S ORDER REQUIRES

JACK AND HIS STAFF TO MAKE

CAKES FOR SAME-SEX

CELEBRATIONS.

HE MUST ALSO REEDUCATE HIS

STAFF ABOUT COLORADO'S

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION ACT.

UNDER THAT LAW, ARTISTS MUST

ENDORSE ALL VIEWS.

AND THE ORDER REQUIRES HIM

TO PUT IN PLACE NEW POLICIES

TO COMPLY WITH THE

COMMISSION'S ORDER.

IN ADDITION, HE WILL SUBMIT

QUARTERLY COMPLIANCE REPORTS

TO THE GOVERNMENT FOR TWO

YEARS.

ACCORDING TO AN ALLIANCE

DEFENDING FREEDOM, THE

REPORTS MUST INCLUDE THE

NUMBER OF COSTUMERS DECLINED

A WEDDING CAKE AND ANOTHER

PRODUCT AND INCLUDE WHY, TO

ENSURE HE HAS FULLY

ELIMINATED HIS RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS FROM THIS BUSINESS.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS CHOSEN

WHICH MESSAGE IT FAVORS IN

THIS STATE.

THE STATE HAS MADE IT VERY

CLEAR.

JACK'S FIRST AMENDMENT

RIGHTS, JACK'S FREEDOM TO

EXPRESS HIMSELF, OR, MORE

IMPORTANTLY, NOT EXPRESS

HIMSELF, MUST BOW TO THE

COMPLAINANTS' MESSAGE.

AND ALL I CAN SAY IS, WHAT

THAT LOOKS LIKE TO ME IS

SOMETHING VERY FRIGHTENING.

AND THAT'S NOTHING MORE THAN

DIVERSITIY THROUGH

CONFORMITY, AND THAT'S NOT

DIVERSITIY AT ALL.

Reporter: JACK PHILIP'S

CASE IS ONE OF A HANDFUL IN

WHICH COMPLAINANTS SUED

PRIVATE BUSINESSES.

IT HELP LEAD TO

CONTROVERSIAL PROPOSALS IN

SEVERAL STATES, ALLOWING

BUSINESSES TO DECLINE

SERVICE, BASED ON THE

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS OF

OWNERS.

THIS CASE IS NOT ABOUT,

AND NEVER HAS BEEN ABOUT,

THE YOUNG MEN WHO CAME IN

HERE ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO,

ASKING JACK TO DESIGN AND

CREATE THEIR CAKE.

THIS CASE HAS ALWAYS BEEN

ABOUT THE MESSAGE THAT THAT

CAKE EXPRESSES, WHAT THAT

CAKE COMMUNICATES.

IT'S SURPRISING, YEAH.

THIS IS NOT WHAT THEY TAUGHT

US IN CIVICS CLASS, THAT

THEY COULD DO THIS TO YOU.

THEY DO THIS IN OTHER

COUNTRIES, NOT HERE.

SO JACK STANDS ON THE

FIRST AMENDMENT.

IN THIS CASE, WE'RE GOING TO

LEARN WHETHER THE FIRST

AMENDMENT HAS A FUTURE IN

AMERICA.

Mark: AND IN A COUNTRY

FOUNDED ON FREEDOM OF

RELIGION AND SPEECH, THAT'S

A FUTURE IMPORTANT TO ALL

AMERICANS.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

LAKEWOOD, COLORADO.

Pat: IF GOD, IN HIS

WORD, SAYS IT IS AN

ABOMINATION FOR A MAN TO LIE

WITH A MAN, AND ALSO THE

BIBLE SAYS FOR THESE THINGS

THE LAND SHALL VOMIT YOU

OUT -- AND SO THERE IS A

CLEAR WARNING THAT THOSE WHO

PARTICIPATE -- THE NAME OF

THIS STUFF IS SODOMY.

AND IT HAS TO DO WITH A CITY

NAMED SODOM, THAT WAS GIVEN

OVER TO ALL KINDS OF

PERVERSE SEX PRACTICES.

THEY EVEN WANTED TO HAVE SEX

WITH ANGELS.

AND GOD DESTROYED SODOM AND

GOMORRAH.

THAT'S WHAT THE TERM COMES

FROM, THE DESTRUCTION.

WHAT OUR CIVIL RIGHTS

COMMISSION AND OTHERS ARE

SAYING, IS WE WANT TO

ENDANGER OUR SOCIETY AND SET

IT UP FOR THE JUDGMENT OF

GOD.

AND IF YOU CHRISTIANS DON'T

LIKE IT, THEN GET OUT.

BECAUSE -- WELL, I DON'T

KNOW, LOTT APPARENTLY DIDN'T

LIKE WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN

SODOM AND GO GOMORRAH, AND

SOME ANGELS TOOK HIM OUT.

WE DON'T REALLY WANT TO

LEAVE BECAUSE WE LIKE IT.

THAT GENTLEMAN IN COLORADO

LIKES HIS BUSINESS, AND THE

GAYS ARE SAYING, WE'RE GOING

TO DRIVE YOU OUT OF TOWN.

EITHER YOU CONFORM TO US OR

YOU MUST LEAVE.

THAT'S THE MESSAGE THAT IS

PUT OUT.

THAT'S THE SAME MESSAGE IN

SODOM AND GOMORRAH.

YOU'RE EITHER GOING TO HAVE

OPEN SEX WITH ANYBODY, AND

SEX WITH ANGELS, OR ELSE YOU

LEAVE OR YOU GO OUT OF

BUSINESS.

THAT'S AMERICA.

YOU DON'T WANT THAT, DO

YOU?

TERRY?

Terry: VERY TROUBLING.

WELL, ARE YOU READY FOR SOME

FOOTBALL?

WE'LL GO INSIDE THE MIND OF

THE MAN WHO TURNED SOMETHING

TO A NATIONAL POWERHOUSE.

YOU BETTER BE DIFFERENT.

YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE IT WORK

THROUGH THEM.

Terry: ART RILE OPENS

UP HIS PLAYBOOK.

AND THEN LATER, SINGER TASHA

COBBS IS COMING TO OUR

STUDIO TO BREAK EVERY

CHAIN.

*

* I NEED SOMEBODY TO RAISE

UP TONIGHT *

Pat: WELL, IT'S

FOOTBALL SEASON, ALMOST.

THE SUMMER -- I REMEMBER

WHEN I USED TO PLAY

FOOTBALL, AND THE SUMMER

WORKOUTS WERE HORRIBLE.

Terry: BRUTAL.

Pat: YEAH.

885°, AND YOU'RE SWEATING,

AND THEY SOMETIMES MADE US

WORK OUT IN PADS AND YOU

WERE SO HOT YOU DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

ANYWAY, IT IS GOING ON NOW,

AND YOU WON'T FIND A MORE

RABID GROUP OF FOOTBALL FANS

IN AMERICA THAN THE ONES WHO

LOVE THAT GAME.

THEY LIVE AND DIE EVERY

SATURDAY IN THE FALL.

UNTIL RECENTLY, FANS OF THE

BAYLOR BEARS DIDN'T HAVE

MUCH TO CHEER FOR.

AND THEN A PLAY CALLER NAMED

ART RILE BRILES ARRIVED ON

CAMPUS.

Reporter: HIS BAYLO

BAYLOR BEARS HAVE LED

COLLEGE FOOTBALL THE LAST

THREE SEASONS.

DYNAMIC, AND WITH A HIGH

RATE OF SPEED AND HIGH

INTENSITY AND REALLY HIGH

EFFORT.

WHEN EVERYBODY IS CLICKING,

WE FEEL LIKE WE'VE DONE WHAT

WE NEED TO DO.

Reporter: BRILES IS A

TURN AROUND SPECIALIST,

REVITALIZING THE FOOTBALL

TEAMS WHERE HE HAS COACH.

HIS APPROACH HAS BRANDED HIM

AS A RESPECTED INNOVATOR.

I'VE COACHED HIGH SCHOOL

FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, AND

YOU COACH AS YOU WALK

THROUGH THE DOOR.

WU YOU'VE.

YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE IT WORK

FOR THEM.

WE'LL ADAPT OUR PERSONNEL,

AND CHANGE OUR SCHEMES, TO

MAKE IT MORE BENEFICIAL FOR

THE PLAYERS.

Reporter: AND COACH BR

ILE HAS AN UPBEAT

PERSONALITY.

WHO'S STYLE HAS BECOME AN

ART.

THEY CREATE SOMETHING

THAT HAS NEVER BEEN THERE

BEFORE.

THEY LET YOU SEE IT VISUALLY

AND SEE IT.

THE SAME THING WITH A NEW

FOOTBALL PLAY.

IT HAS NEVER EXISTED

BEFORE.

YOU HAVE CREATED SOMETHING.

Reporter: THE NATIVE

TEXAN PLAYED QUARTERBACK AT

A HIGH SCHOOL, AND RECEIVER

AT THE UNIVERSITY OF

HOUSTON, WHERE HE LATER

COACHED FOR FIRE YEARS.

BRIRE HAS TAKEN OVER A

PROGRAM THAT HAS BEEN

UNRANKED FOR 22 YEARS.

BY 2011, THE BEARS WERE

RANKED 12 NATIONALLY.

WE PLAY FROM THE INSIDE

OUT.

BECAUSE I DON'T THINK YOU

CAN DO ANYTHING WITHOUT

BRINGING YOUR PAST.

IT IS EASY TO BE PHYSICALLY

FIT ON THE OUTSIDE AND

MENTALLY READY, BUT WHEN YOU

START PLAYING WITH YOUR SOUL

AND YOUR HEART, THEN YOU

HAVE A CHANCE TO BE

DIFFERENT.

Reporter: LAST SEASON,

HIS 11 WINS WERE A SCHOOL

BEST, BRINGING A

CHAMPIONSHIP TO WACO.

BRILES IS THE UNDISPUTED

LEADER TO THE PROGRAM'S

QUICK RISE TO NATIONAL

PROMINENCE.

BAYLOR IS ONCE AGAIN LOADED

FOR THE BEARS.

AFTER YEARS OF THE

UNDERACHIEVING UNDERDOG.

I'VE BEEN ON THE FLOOR.

I'VE BEEN WITH MY FACE IN

THE DIRT.

YOU CAN RISE UP AND YOU HAVE

AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO

SOMETHING WITH YOURSELF.

WHEN AN OBSTACLE THAT IS IN

FRONT OF ME THAT MAY SEEM

DAUNTING, I'M NOT

INTIMIDATING BY MY

CIRCUMSTANCES.

Reporter: THE ONGOING

RESURGENCE THAT ART BRINGS

HAS MORE TO DO WITH HIM

BEING A SON THAN A COACH.

IT COMES FROM STRUGGLE.

WHEN THE YOUNG SOPHOMORE

WIDE RECEIVER WAS WAITING TO

BE REUNITED WITH HIS FAMILY

AT THE COTTON BALL IN

DALLAS.

INSTEAD, HE GOT AGONIZING

NEWS.

HIS AUNT AND PARENTS NEVER

MADE IT.

AFTER THE GAME, HE LEARNED

WHY.

IN 1976, I TALKED TO THEM

FROM THE HOTEL ROOM AND

SAID, SEE YOU TOMORROW AT

THE GAME.

THERE IS ALWAYS A PARENTS'

SECTION.

AND I LOOKED UP THERE, AND

DIDN'T SEE THEM, AND

THOUGHT, MAYBE THEY'RE

RUNNING LATE.

AND AFTER THE GAME, THEY

SAID THE COACH WANTED TO SEE

YOU.

WHEN HE DELIVERED THE NEWS

TO ME, THEY HAD DECEASED ON

THE WAY TO THE GAME, IT WAS

COMPLETE DEVASTATION.

A DEVASTATION IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: ALL THREE

WERE KILLED IN A CAR CRASH,

WHILE EN ROUTE TO DALLAS.

HOW LONG DID THAT PAIN RUN?

IT NEVER STOPS.

Reporter: IT WAS ART'S

LAST SEASON AS A PLAYER.

HE TRANSFERRED TO FINISH HIS

UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE

DEGREES BEFORE COACHING HIGH

SCHOOL FOR 21 YEARS.

IT TOOK HIM 30 BEFORE HE

COULD OPEN UP TO TALK ABOUT

HIS FAMILY'S TRAGEDY.

BUT INTERNALLY, HE FOUND A

SHELTER.

I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A

DISPONDENT STATE AND MAKE IT

A HOPEFUL STATE.

MY FAITH IN GOD THAT GOOD

THINGS CAN COME OUT OF BAD

SITUATIONS -- YOU KNOW,

THERE WAS A SACRIFICE THAT

ALLOWED ME TO MOVE ON WITH A

DIFFERENT MINDSET THAN I

WOULD HAVE HAD.

THERE IS A PURPOSE IN LIFE.

AND THAT PURPOSE IS TO LIVE

FOR THE HERE AFTER.

Reporter: BRILE MENTORS

AND SERVES AS A SURROGATE

FATHER TO ATHLETES WHO FACE

STRUGGLES FROM BEING

PARENTLESS.

HIS NEW BOOK WRESTLES WITH

ADVERSITY.

I CAN RELATE.

I'VE BEEN THERE.

IT MAKES ME MORE

APPRECIATIVE OF YOUNG ADULTS

OR PEOPLE WHO MAYBE SUFFER

AND ARE TRYING TO MAKE IT.

TO WHERE, YOU KNOW, HEY, I

CAN HELP YOU.

AND, YOU KNOW, I'M WITH YOU,

AND TO BE A GOOD, HOLY

INFLUENCE.

I'VE BEEN BLESSED TO BE IN

THE PROFESSION I'M IN WHERE

YOU CAN UTILIZE IT.

Reporter: THE SHINING

CHARGE TO HIS BAYLOR PLAYERS

IS NOT JUST SET THE

STANDARD, BUT BE THE

STANDARD.

GET READY TO BE THE BEST

YOU CAN BE THAT DAY.

TO GET ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD

AND TO HAVE A TEAM AND HAVE

A PURPOSE.

AND EVERYBODY WORK FOR THAT

PURPOSE AND GIVE UP THEIR

OWN BENEFITS FOR THE BENEFIT

OF THE TEAM.

THAT'S INSPIRING.

Reporter: ART BRILE,

HEAD COACH, INNOVATOR, AND

LEADER, WHO TURNED IT INTO A

DRAWING WIN, BY TURNING OUT

CHAMPION ATTITUDES.

FIND A REASON TO MAKE IT

POSITIVE.

BECAUSE AS BAD AS THINGS ARE

NOW, LOOK FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE AND

MAKE IT BETTER.

WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH

CHRIST, WHO STRENGTHENS ME.

WHEN YOU NEED STRENGTH,

CHRIST IS WHERE YOU LOOK.

Pat: WHAT AN INSPIRED

COACH, ART BRILES.

WHAT AN AMAZING THING.

BAYLOR WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF

THE HEAP.

IMAGINE A FORMER BAPTIST

COLLEGE BUILDING A STADIUM

OF THAT MAGNITUDE, WOW.

Terry: WHAT A

TREMENDOUS LEAP FORWARD HE

HAS BROUGHT TO THAT

PROGRAM.

UNBELIEVABLE.

YOU KNOW, HE HAS LEFT AN

INDELIBLE MARK ON THE LIVES

OF THE MEN HE COACHED.

BAYLOR'S SEASON KICKS OFF

AUGUST 31st, AND IF YOU

CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG, GET

ART'S BOOK.

IT'S CALLED "BEATING GOL

BEATING GOLIATH."

UP NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO GO

FROM THE GRID IRON TO THE

GRAMMYS.

THE WINNER OF THIS YEAR'S

BEST GOSPEL PERFORMANCE

AWARD SINGS FOR US LIVE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THERE IS MIXED REACTION TO

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S NOMINEE TO

THE POST

OF AMBASSADOR FOR

INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

RABBI DAVID SAPERSTEIN HAS

SPENT HIS CAREER IN

WASHINGTON, FOCUSING ON

SOCIAL JUSTICE AND RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM ISSUES AS AN

ACTIVIST IN THE LIBERAL

REFORM BRANCH OF JUDAISM.

SOME APPLAUD THE CHOICE, AND

OTHERS SAY SAPERSTEIN IS ON

THE WRONG SIDE OF ISSUES,

LIKE THE CONTROVERSY OVER

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: TASHA COBBS IS

ONE OF GOSPEL MUSIC'S NEWEST

STARS, BUT WHEN SHE STEPS ON

THE STAGE, SHE DOESN'T DO IT

AS A NATIONALLY REKNOWED

VOCALIST.

INSTEAD, SHE IS THE SAME

PERSON SHE WAS AS A YOUNG

GIRL, JUST A SINGER WHO

WANTED TO LEAD THE

CONGREGATION IN WORSHIP.

Reporter: MOTOWN

RECORDING ARTIST TASHA COBBS

HAS BEEN BUSY SINCE THE

RELEASE OF HER

ALBUM, "GRACE."

SHE WON THREE GRAMMYS.

NOW SHE IS THE WORSHIP

PASTOR AT THE DREAM CENTER

CHURCH OF ATLANTA AND IS

DETERMINED NOT TO LET

SUCCESS GO TO HER HEAD.

HER ASSIGNMENT REMAINS THE

SAME: TO LEAD PEOPLE INTO

GOD'S PRESENCE.

Terry: TASHA COBBS IS

HERE WITH US.

WE WELCOME YOU TO "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

IT IS SO GREAT TO BE

HERE.

Terry: I GUESS YOU HAVE

TO BE A SINGER, AS BEST A

MUSICIAN, TO BE IN THE

COBBS' FAMILY.

THAT'S TRUE.

WE WERE RAISED SINGING AND

CREATING SONGS.

ALL OF MY AUNTS AND ALL OF

MY COUSINS SING TOGETHER.

Terry: HOW FUN.

IT IS FUN.

WE

HAVE GET TOGETHERS.

Terry: THAT'S AWESOME.

DID FAMILY MEMBERS WRITE AS

YOU WERE GROWING UP, OR DID

THIS JUST COME INTO YOUR

WRITE?

SEVERAL OF US WRITE.

ON MY DAD'S SIDE, THE COBBS'

SIDE, EVERYONE PLAYS MUSIC.

AND MY MOM'S SIDE IS FULL OF

SINGERS.

Terry: THEY WERE MEANT

TO BE TOGETHER.

YOU WON'T THREE STELLER

AWARDS AND A GRAMMY.

WHAT TREMENDOUS RECOGNITION

FOR YOUR TALENT.

BUT RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF

THAT -- I THINK OF THE COACH

BRILE STORY WE JUST SAW, AND

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT

CELEBRATION AND HONOR CAME A

VERY SAD EVENT.

ABSOLUTELY.

I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME,

I HAD TO GROW UP IN SEVEN

DAYS, LITERALLY.

MY FATHER WAS WITH ME AT THE

STELLERS, AND THE KNACKS

NEXT DAY WE WERE RETURNING

HOME AND HE WENT ON TO BE

WITH THE LORD.

Terry: AND HE WASN'T

SICK AT ALL?

NO.

IT WAS SHOCKING.

AND SEVEN DAYS LATER, I WON

A GRAMMY.

SO IT IS ALMOST LIKE THIS

LIFE ROLLERCOASTER.

I TELL PEOPLE NOW, EVEN IN

MY FATHER'S TRANSITION, HE

IS STILL TEACHING ME.

HE IS STILL TEACHING ME

ABOUT WORSHIP.

BECAUSE NOW MY WORSHIP IS

DEEPER.

IT IS A PLACE WHERE GOD IS

GIVING ME PEACE AND STRENGTH

WHILE I'M IN HIS PRESENCE.

Terry: YOUR DAD HAS

SUCH A POWERFUL INFLUENCE ON

YOUR LIFE.

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT SOME

OF THE THINGS HE WOULD TEACH

YOU?

EVERY DAY, WHEN I TALKED

TO MY FATHER, EVEN AS AN

ADULT, BEFORE WE GOT OFF THE

PHONE, HE WOULD SAY, STAY AT

THE SEAT OF JESUS.

AND EVEN WHEN IT GETS

DIFFICULT, I HEAR HIM SAY,

STAY AT THE FEET OF JESUS.

Terry: YOU'VE BEEN

THRUST INTO THE LIMELIGHT.

I'M SURE THERE WERE MANY,

MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO

PERFORM THAT YOU HAD BEFORE

THAT, BUT WEIGHT, YOU SAY,

IS SOMETHING YOU STRUGGLED

WITH

YOUR WHOLE

LIFE.

AND THEN YOU'RE PUSHED INTO

THE LIMELIGHT, I'M SURE ANY

INSECURITY YOU HAVE ABOUT

THAT RISES TO THE TOP.

YES.

Terry: HOW HAS GOD

WORKED WITH YOUR HEART AND

MIND WITH REGARD TO YOUR OWN

SELF-IMAGE AND SELF-ESTEEM.

Reporter: THREE YEARS

AGO, I -- I NEVER TELL

ANYBODY WHERE I'M GOING.

Terry: THAT'S WISE.

THAT YEAR I HAD BEEN

OVERWEIGHT MY WHOLE LIFE.

AND I COULD FEEL IT.

BECAUSE BEFORE I WAS

ACTIVE.

AND YOUR BODY CAN TAKE IT

WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER.

BUT I WAS GETTING A LITTLE

UP THERE.

I HAD SOME TIME AND PRAYER

WITH GOD, AND I SAID, I'VE

GOT TO GET RID OF THIS

WEIGHT IN ORDER TO DO WHAT

YOU'VE CALLED ME TO DO.

AND HE GAVE ME

INSTRUCTIONS.

AND FROM THAT TIME ON, I

LOST OVER 100 POUNDS.

YOU FEEL BETTER.

YOU HAVE JUST THE ENERGY TO

DO WHAT YOU'VE BEEN CALLED

TO DO.

I PRAISE GOD FOR THAT.

Terry: I KNOW THAT YOUR

DAD'S VOICE RINGS IN YOUR

EARS ABOUT STAYING TRUE TO

YOURSELF AND STAYING AT THE

FOOT OF JESUS.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

YOU KNOW, YOU AND I WERE

TALKING BEFORE WE CAME OUT

OF THAT LAST BREAK.

YOU'RE TRAVELLING ALL OF THE

TIME, YOU'RE PERFORMING FOR

PEOPLE.

HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR HEART

AND YOUR MIND SET WHERE YOU

WANT IT TO BE?

BEFORE, WHEN THE TRAVEL

JUST STARTED, IT WAS

CHALLENGING BECAUSE YOU NEED

BALANCE.

I PRAYED, GOD, I NEED

BALANCE.

IF I'M REALLY GOING TO HEAR

YOUR VOICE, I NEED TO HEAR

YOU.

YOU FIND TIME ON THE PLANE.

YOU LOOK OUT THE WINDOW, AND

GOD WILL MEET YOU THERE.

AND YOU READ THE

SCRIPTURES.

Terry: ARE YOU STILL

LEADING WORSHIP AT THE DREAM

CENTER IN ATLANTA?

YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES I

MISS MY CHURCH A LOT.

I'M THERE MAYBE ONCE OR

TWICE A MONTH.

AND WHEN I COME IN,

SOMETIMES I'LL RUN UP AND

GRAB A MIC.

BUT WE HAVE SOME AMAZING

WORSHIP LEADERS THERE, SO I

ALLOW THEM TO LEAD ME WHEN I

GET THERE.

Terry: THAT'S A

WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY.

YOU'RE GOING TO SING THE

SONG "BREAK EVERY CHAIN" FOR

US.

THIS SONG WAS SO

SIGNIFICANT.

ON YOUR RECENT C.D. RELEASE

AS WELL, IT'S CALLED

"GRACE," AND IT'S AWESOME.

WHAT DOES THE SONG MEAN TO

YOU?

WHY IS IT SO SIGNIFICANT?

"BREAK EVERY CHAIN," WAS

RELEASED BY ANOTHER, AND

WILLIAM WROTE THE SONG.

AND THE FIRST TIME I HEARD

IT, I LISTENED TO IT ALL

NIGHT LONG, AND CHAINS WERE

BROKEN IN MY LIFE.

I KNEW THE SONG WAS GOING TO

BLESS O SO MANY PEOPLE.

Terry: AND YOU'VE SEEN

THAT AS YOU HAVE SUNG IT.

YOU'VE SEEN PEOPLE SET

FREE.

YES.

Terry: THAT MUST BE SO

POWERFUL TO YOU?

IT IS.

IT IS AWESOME.

I'VE EXPERIENCED THE SONG

MYSELF.

Terry: WE WANT TO

EXPERIENCE IT, TOO.

SO, TASHA, I'M GOING TO LET

YOU GO AND GET INTO PLACE.

AS WE MENTIONED, SHE IS

GOING TO PERFORM THE SONG

"BREAK EVERY CHAIN" FOR US.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THE TRACKS

THAT IS ON THIS LATEST C.D.

THE C.D. IS CALLED "GRACE,"

AND IT'S AVAILABLE WHEREVER

MUSIC IS SOLD.

PLUS, YOU CAN SEE AN

EXCLUSIVE BEHIND-THE-SCENES

INTERVIEW WITH HER CALLED

"IN THE GREEN ROOM."

RIGHT NOW HERE IS TASHA

COBBS WITH THE SONG THAT

HELPED HER WIN A GRAMMY.

* THERE IS POWER IN THE NAME

OF JESUS *

[APPLAUSE]

COMING UP LATER...TIME TO

"BRING IT ON."

WE'LL TACKLE YOUR QUESTIONS,

NEXT.

Terry: IT'S TIME TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH SOME OF

THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS YOU ALL

HAVE SENT IN.

PAT, THIS FIRST WU ONE

COMES FROM TINA, WHO SAYS,

"I KNOW THE BIBLE SAYS WE'RE

TO BE GOOD STEWARDS OF

MONEY.

MY HUSBAND AND I LOVE TO

GIVE TO MINISTRIES, TITHE,

AND NOT SPEND WASTEFULLY.

BUT SOMETIMES I LIKE GETTING

A MANICURE, GETTING SOMEONE

TO HELP CLEAN THE HOUSE,

ETC.

PART OF ME FEELS LIKE I'M

HELPING TO STIMULATE THE

ECONOMY, AND HELPING SOMEONE

HAVE A JOB.

BUT ANOTHER PART OF ME FEELS

GUILTY FOR SPENDING MONEY ON

THOSE THINGS.

HOW DO WE KNOW HOW TO HAVE

THE RIGHT BALANCE BETWEEN

BEING GOOD STEWARDS AND

ENJOYING WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN

US?"

Pat: THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAYS GOD GIVES US RICHES FOR

ALL THINGS TO ENJOY.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS

GIVEN INCOME TO YOU AND YOUR

HUSBAND THAT YOU HAVE TO BE

MONKS.

YOU'RE GIVING, AND YOU'RE

GIVING GENEROUSLY, AND YOU

HELP THE POOR AND THE

NEEDY.

AND GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO GO OUT AND

HAVE A MEAL OCCASIONALLY OR

GET SOMEBODY TO DO YOUR

HOUSEWORK, WHATEVER, THERE

IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

Terry: THE FACT THAT

YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT THAT

SAYS YOUR HUMBLE.

Pat: IT IS NOT A SIN.

YOU'VE GOT TO SAY THAT GOD

GAVE YOU THESE THINGS TO

ENJOY.

HE HAS PUT IT IN YOUR HANDS

TO ENJOY.

AS LONG AS YOU TAKE CARE OF

THE POOR AND THE NEEDY AND

YOU BLESS HIM AND GIVE TO

THE WORK OF THE LORD, ENJOY

WHAT'S THERE.

YOU DON'T WASTE IT, BUT IT

DOESN'T HURT TO ENJOY A

LITTLE BIT OF WHAT HE HAS

PUT IN YOUR HANDS.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "I'M A YOUNG WOMAN

WHO IS ADDICTED TO

PORNOGRAPHY.

I'VE TRIED TO STOP MANY

TIMES KNOWING IT IS SINFUL

AND I'LL GO TO HELL FOR IT,

BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK.

I FEEL REGARDLESS OF WHAT I

MAY DO, I'LL STILL GO TO

HELL.

I HAVE TALKED TO GOD MANY

TIMES, I KNOW HE IS

LISTENING, BUT I DON'T GET A

RESPONSE TO HIM.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: I KNOW THIS WILL

SHOCK SOME PEOPLE, BUT

WATCHING PORN DOESN'T SEND

YOU TO HELL.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HELL

BECAUSE OF AN ADDICTION.

IT IS ONE MORE TYPE OF

ADDICTION.

THERE IS ADDICTION TO

COCAINE, THERE IS ADDICTION

TO COCAINE, THERE IS

ADDICTION TO METH, THERE IS

ADDICTION TO ALCOHOL.

THIS IS A TYPE OF

ADDICTION.

YOU NEED TO ASK THE LORD FOR

DELIVERANCE.

IF YOU NEED TO HAVE A GROUP

MEET WITH YOU TO PRAY WITH

YOU, BY ALL MEANS.

THE BIBLE SAYS, HE MADE A

SHOW OF THEM OPENLY,

TRIUMPHANT IN HIS CROSS.

I BELIEVE YOU NEED TO MAKE A

SHOW OF SOME OF THESE THINGS

OPENLY.

YOU NEED TO GET WITH

SOMEBODY AND CONFESS AND

SAY, ELECTRIC LOOK, I'VE

GOT THIS PROBLEM.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID, "IT

IS BETTER TO MARRY THAN TO

BURN WITH LUST."

YOU OBVIOUSLY ARE SINGLE AND

YOU HAVE FANTASIES ABOUT

LUST.

THE PORNOGRAPHY, WHICH IS SO

READILY AVAILABLE, FEEDS ON

THAT THING.

STOP THINKING YOU'RE GOING

TO HELL.

REALIZE THE CROSS OF JESUS

CHRIST -- THE BIBLE SAYS,

AND I WANT YOU TO PRAY THIS,

THE 51st PALM: "CREATE IN

ME A CLEAN HEART, O GOD, AND

RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN

ME."

YOU PRAY THAT EVERY DAY.

AND EVERY DAY I WANT YOU TO

WORSHIP GOD AND FILL YOUR

MIND WITH THE SCRIPTURES.

AND DON'T EXPOSE YOURSELF.

DON'T BUY PORN, DON'T FLIP

IT ON THE TELEVISION, DON'T

SUBSCRIBE TO PORN CHANNELS.

DON'T DO THAT AND LET YOUR

MIND BE FOCUSED ON JESUS.

AND FILL YOURSELF WITH

SOMETHING BESIDES THIS.

AND STOP THINKING YOU'RE

GOING TO HELL.

THAT'S THE WORSE THING.

YOU SAY, I'M GOING TO HELL

ANY WAY, SO I MIGHT AS WELL

ENJOY IT.

NO, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

HELL.

GOD LOVES YOU, AND THE CROSS

OF JESUS CHRIST AVAILS

DESPITE YOUR SIN.

HE WILL FORGIVE YOU

ABUNDANTLY IF YOU ASK HIM.

Terry: LISA SAYS,

"BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST, AND YOU WILL BE

SAVED, YOU AND YOUR

HOUSEHOLD.

MY PASTOR CLAIMS THAT HAS

BEEN MADE EXCLUSIVELY FOR

THE PHILLIPEAN JAILER AND WE

CAN'T CLAIM IT FOR

OURSELVES.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?"

Pat: PAUL SAID, BELIEVE

ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,

AND YOU'LL BE SAVED, AND

YOUR HOUSEHOLD.

THAT DOES NOT APPLY THAT

EVERYBODY WHO BELIEVES ON

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, HIS

HOUSEHOLD IS GOING TO GET

SAVED.

IT JUST DOESN'T SAY THAT.

SO YOUR PASTOR IS RIGHT.

AT THE SAME TIME, IF A VERSE

OF SCRIPTURE TAKES ON A LIFE

TO YOU, IT BECOMES A

SO-CALLED RAMON.

IT IS A SPOKEN WORD OF GOD

TO YOU, AND YOU CAN SAY,

THAT SPEAKS TO ME AND I

APPROPRIATE THAT AS A

PROMISE TO MY FAMILY.

I THINK THAT WILL WORK.

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY IT WAS

NOT FOR YOU: I YOU; IT WAS

FOR HIM.

THE PROMISES ARE GOD ARE

MADE FOR EVERYBODY.

Terry: ANITA SAYS,

"I'VE BEEN MARRIED TO MY

HUSBAND FOR 14 YEARS, AND I

LOVE HIM.

BUT I DON'T RESPECT HIM

BECAUSE ALL HE DOES IS SIT

ON THE COUCH.

IT WASN'T ALWAYS THIS WAY.

IT STARTED SIX MONTHS AGO

WHEN HE BECAME UNEMPLOYED.

WE'RE ABOUT TO LOSE OR HOME,

AND IT ACTS LIKE HE DOESN'T

CARE.

HE IS A CHRISTIAN, AND I'VE

TRIED TO ENCOURAGE HIM WITH

THE WORD, BUT HE DOESN'T

EVEN GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE.

HOW CAN I HELP HIM?"

Pat: WHAT YOU CAN DO IS

SUPPORT HIM.

A MAN HAS LOST HIS JOB.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH HE

HAS INVESTED IN THAT JOB.

WHAT IT MEANT TO HIM.

THAT MAY HAVE BEEN HIS

LIFE.

THE IMAGE OF HIMSELF AS A

PRODUCTIVE WORKER, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN THAT HAS BEEN

SHATTERED.

IT IS LIKE A DEATH IN THE

FAMILY, AND HE IS GRIEVING.

INSTEAD OF SAYING, I DON'T

RESPECT HIM BECAUSE HE SITS

ON THE COUCH.

YOU OUGHT TO SIT WITH HIM ON

THE COUCH AND SAY, WE'RE

GOING TO OVERCOME THIS.

YOU'RE MY HUSBAND, I LOVE

YOU, AND I KNOW YOU'VE LOST

A JOB, AND I'M GOING TO

HELP, AND TOGETHER WE'RE

GOING TO OVERCOME THIS

THING.

HE'S HAD A GRIEF.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT HAS

DONE TO A MAN'S

SELF-ESTEEM.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HE HAS

GONE THROUGH.

ALL RIGHT.

MY DIRECTOR SAYS TO SHUT

UP.

THANKS FOR THOSE QUESTIONS.

Terry: WE DO THANK YOU

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT NOW

TO GO TO PERU.

A SINGLE FATHER WORKED LONG

HOURS DOING BACK-BREAKING

WORK JUST TO SUPPORT HIS

SONS.

HE AND HIS FAMILY STRUGGLED

TO GET BY.

SO WE DECIDED TO MAKE THEIR

JOB A LITTLE EASIER.

Reporter: FOR THE PAST

17 YEARS, ELVIS TEKO HAS

BEEN RAISING HIS SON AS A

SINGLE PARENT.

THE BOYS' MOTHER LEFT ONE

DAY AND NEVER RETURNED.

ELVIS AND JAVI ARE MY LIFE.

Reporter: HE HAS A BACK

BREAKING JOB HAULING BANANAS

TO THE MARKET.

MY DAD MEANS EVERYTHING

TO US.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE WOULD

DO WITHOUT HIM.

HE IS OUR HERO AND OUR ROLE

MODEL.

Reporter: ELVIS HAS

ALREADY WANTED MORE FOR HIS

BOYS, SO HE MADE SACRIFICES

TO KEEP THEM IN SCHOOL.

LIKE LIVING IN THIS CHANTEY,

WHICH IS THE ONLY PLACE THEY

COULD AFFORD.

THE HOUSE HAD NO WALLS.

AND WHEN IT RAINED, WATER

POURED IN.

THE OTHER BIG BROTHER WAS

THE RATS.

THEY COME IN ALL OF THE

TIME, AND THEY WERE SCARY.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" BUILT THEM A NEW

HOUSE, WHICH IS COMPLETELY

ENCLOSED.

IT PROTECTS THEM FROM THE

WEATHER AND THE RATS.

WE ALSO BOUGHT THEM NEW

MATTRESSES.

WE USED TO SLEEP ON THE

FLOOR ON SOME PLASTIC.

NOW I CAN SLEEP ON THE

MATTRESS.

Reporter: WE ALSO HOPED

ELVIS GROW HIS BUSINESS.

NOW THAT HE GROWS SO MANY

BANANAS, THEY'RE DELIVERED

FOR FREE.

AND HIS INCOME HAS

QUADRUPLED.

THE HOUSE YOU HAVE GIVEN

US AND THE INCREASE IN THE

BUSINESS IS A BLESSING FROM

GOD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: ISN'T IT A GREAT

THING TO KNOW YOU CAN MAKE

THAT KIND OF A DIFFERENCE IN

SOMEONE'S LIFE?

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

IT HAPPENED BECAUSE PEOPLE

JUST LIKE YOU AND ME SAID,

LET'S GET TOGETHER AND DO

SOMETHING THAT CHANGES

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

JOINING "THE 700 CLUB" IS

WHAT THAT IS ALL ABOUT.

IT IS PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO

SAID, I WANT TO BE PART OF

THAT TEAM.

WE ARE A TEAM, AND WE'RE

REACHING OUT TO THE WORLD

WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH,

MAKES YOU A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

YOU CAN CALL THAT NUMBER

THAT IS IN YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

AND WHEN YOU DO, WE'RE GOING

TO SEND YOU AS OUR THANK

YOU, "LIVING UNDER GOD'S

BLESSING," THIS IS AN

AWESOME TEACHING.

YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT.

SO CALL RIGHT NOW.

PAT?

Pat: THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US TODAY ON "THE

700 CLUB."

WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM THE 34th

PSALM: "THE LORD IS CLOSE TO

THE BROKENHEARTED AND SAVED

THOSE WHO ARE CRUSHED IN

SPIRIT."

THE LORD IS NEAR YOU.

TOMORROW, COULD THE MIDDLE

EAST CONFLICT BE ONLY THE

BEGINNING OF WHERE THE JID

HADISTS AR JIHADISTS ARE

GOING?

A FRIGHTENING CONCLUSION

TOMORROW ON "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.

BYE-BYE.
