The 700 Club - August 20, 2014

Rocky Seto’s unique coaching role with the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks is fueled by his commitment to Jesus Christ. Plus, Drugs and crime were just the beginning of Tracy's behavioral problems. Read Transcript


THE CASE OF THE

DISAPPEARING DOCTORS.

ABSOLUTELY INSANE.

THERE SHOULD BE NO WAY.

Wendy: WHY THEY'RE

LEAVING THE PRACTICE, AND

WHAT WOULD BRING THEM BACK.

THAT WOULD BE A BIG, HUGE

STEP.

Wendy: PLUS, FROM YOUR

WORLD CHAMPION SEATTLE

SEAHAWKS, COACH ROCKY STETOS

METEORIC RISE.

ON TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

HE MADE ME BELIEVE IN THE

IMPOSSIBLE.

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

WE'RE AT WAR WITH A BUNCH OF

SAVAGES.

THE MONSTERS WHO CALL

THEMSELVES THE ISLAMIC STATE

DELIVERED THEIR MESSAGE TO

AMERICA, AND IT CAME IN THE

FORM OF A SEVERED HEAD.

THAT BAND OF BLOOD-LOVING

BUTCHERS RELEASED A VIDEO

SHOWING HIM DECAPITATING AN

AMERICAN JOURNALIST, AND

THEY THREATENED TO BEHEAD

ANOTHER UNLESS OBAMA ENDS

THE MILITARY OPERATIONS IN

IRAQ.

Wendy: A GROWING NUMBER

OF POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS

LEADERS AROUND THE WORLD ARE

CALLING FOR ACTION AGAINST

THE ISLAMIC RADICALS IN

IRAQ.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THIS CHILLING

VIDEO RELEASED LATE TUESDAY

APPEARS TO SHOW THE

40-YEAR-OLD AMERICAN PHOTO

JOURNALIST, JAMES FOLEY, ON

HIS KNEES, WITH HIS

EXECUTIONER NEXT TO HIM,

HOLDING A KNIFE IN HIS LEFT

HAND.

FOLEY WAS A SEASONED FOREIGN

CORRESPOND ON ASSIGNMENT FOR

THE GLOBAL POST WHEN HE

DISAPPEARED IN NORTHERN

SYRIA.

HIS MURDER IS RETALIATION

FOR U.S. AIR STRIKES THAT

HAVE STOPPED THE ISIS

ADVANCE IN NORTHERN IRAQ.

IT IS THE LATEST OUTRAGE

FROM THE SOLDIERS OF THE

ISLAMIC STATE.

PIES THIS

THIS IS A TRAGEDY BEYOND

IMAGINEING.

Reporter: ISIS IS

CAPABLE OF CARRYING OUT AN

ATTACK ON U.S. SOIL, AND

WARNED THAT THE PRESIDENT

MUST DEAL WITH THEM NOW.

ISIS METHODS ARE

BEHEADINGS, MASS EXECUTIONS,

OR LIVE BURIALS, AND

ENSLAVEMENT OF WOMEN AND

FORCED MARRIAGES.

THESE ARE EVIL PEOPLE.

Reporter: ACROSS THE

GLOBE, OPPOSITION TO ISIS IS

GROWING.

IN GERMANY, THOUSANDS OF

KURDS, YAZIDIS, AND OTHERS

TOOOTHERS TOOK TO THE

STREETS OF HANOVER.

ON MONDAY, THE POPE GAVE HIS

BLESSING TO MILITARY ACTION

TO STOP THE TERRORIST

GROUP.

THE PATRIARCHS IN LEBANON

ARE ALSO CALLING FOR ACTION

TO STOP THE PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS DISPLACED IN

IRAQ.

EVEN MUSLIM LEADERS ARE

SLAMMING THE ACTIONS OF

ISIS.

THE GROUP IS ISLAM'S NUMBER

ONE ENEMY, AND

REPRESENTATIVES OF SEVERAL

MUSLIM ORGANIZATIONS CALL

THE RADICAL GROUP A

MONSTER.

MEANWHILE, A GROUP OF

RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS HERE IN

THE U.S. ARE CALLING FOR THE

DESTRUCTION OF ISIS.

THE ONLINE PETITION SIGNED

BY REVEREND RUSSELL MOORE OF

THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST

CONVENTION AND OTHERS SAYS,

NONE OF US GLORIFIES WAR,

BUT WARNS THAT NOTHING LESS

CAN STOP THE ISLAMIC

MILITANTS' CAMPAIGN OF

GENOCIDE AGAINST RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES, AND

UNCONSCIONABLE ACTS OF

BARBARISM AGAINST

DEFENSELESS WOMEN AND

CHILDREN.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THAT'S A

COURAGEOUS STATEMENT FROM

RELIGIOUS LEADERS.

WITH US NOW IS ONE OF THE

SIGNERS OF THAT STATEMENT,

CALLING FOR THE DESTRUCTION

OF THE ISLAMIC STATE.

PROFESSOR ROBERT GEORGE IS A

MEMBER OF THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMISSION ON INTERNATIONAL

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

HE IS WIDELY RESPECTED

PROFESSOR AT PRINCETON.

DR. GEORGE, I'M DELIGHTED TO

HAVE YOU WITH US TODAY.

COULD YOU TELL US WHAT LED

TO THAT STATEMENT, WHAT

FINALLY GOT YOU TO THAT

POINT?

IT IS THE ATROCITIES

BEING COMMITTED AGAINST

IERAS CHRISTIANS, YAZIDIS,

AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE

MINORITIES, AND EVEN MEMBERS

OF THE SO-CALLED ISLAMIC

STATE.

THESE ARE TYRANTS AND

MURDERERS.

THEY TORTURE.

THEIR VICTIMS INCLUDE

INNOCENT WOMEN AND

CHILDREN.

THEY INCLUDE ELDERLY

PEOPLE.

AND THEY ARE DRIVEN BY A

KIND OF FANATICISM THAT

MEANS THEY CANNOT BE

NEGOTIATED WITH.

THEY MUST BE STOPPED.

AND THAT'S WHY OUR STATEMENT

AT IRAQRESCUE.ORG CALLS FOR

THE DESTRUCTION OF ISIS, THE

ISLAMIC STATE, AS A FIGHTING

FORCE.

NOTHING SHORT OF THAT WILL

DO.

THESE PEOPLE MEAN BUSINESS.

THEY TELL US WHAT THEY'RE

GOING TO DO, AND THEN THEY

DO IT.

WE WOULD BE FOOLS TO STOP

SHORT OF ANYTHING BUT THE

DESTRUCTION OF THIS MILITARY

FORCE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THERE

WAS A TIME THAT RELIGIOUS

LEADERS WERE PASSIVISTS, AND

THEY WOULDN'T CONCUR WITH

WAR, BUT YOU'RE SAYING THIS

GROUP IS SO EVIL, THEY HAVE

TO BE DESTROYED, AND

DESTROYED MEANS THEY'VE GOT

TO BE KILLED.

THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO DO

IN ORDER TO PROTECT INNOCENT

WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND OTHER

VICTIMS, CHRISTIANS,

YAZIDIS, KURDS, AND EVEN

MEMBERS OF THE SUNNI

MAJORITY.

ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE

BEING VICTIMIZED, AND

VICTIMIZED IN A GENOCIDAL

WAY BY THESE MONSTERS.

THIS IS NOT A CASE OF US,

CHRISTIANS, OR US,

AMERICANS, AGAINST ISLAM.

AS YOUR SETUP INDICATED

ISLAMIC LEADERS THROUGHOUT

THE MIDDLE EAST ARE CALLING

FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF ISIS

AS WELL.

WE MUST JOIN ACROSS

INTERNATIONAL BOUNDS.

THE UNITED STATES SHOULDN'T

DO THIS ALONE, BUT IN

SOLIDARITY WITH OTHER

NATIONS ACROSS THE GLOBE TO

STOP THIS.

THIS BEHEADING, THIS

HORRIBLE BEHEADING, IS JUST

A SINGLE EXAMPLE OF WHAT

GOES ON HUNDREDS OF TIMES,

PAT, EVERY DAY, IN IRAQ

TODAY.

AND THEY HAVE NO INTENTION,

ISIS HAS NO INTENTION OF

STOPPING IN IRAQ.

THEY MEAN TO GO ON TO SYRIA,

THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST,

AND THEY MEAN TO CARRY OUT

TERRORIST ATTACKS IN.

EUROPE AND THE

UNITED STATES.

WHEN THEY HAVE THREATENED,

AS THEY HAVE THREATENED,

THEY MAKE GOOD ON THEIR

THREATS.

WE MUST STOP THEM NOW.

Pat: WELL, I COULDN'T

CONCUR MORE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WE'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO DO?

I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS A

LITTLE RELUCTANT TO PUT

SO-CALLED BOOTS ON THE

GROUND.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR THE

PESHMERGA TO DO THE HEAVY

LIFTING.

WHAT YOU RECOMMEND MORE

AMERICAN TROOPS, DEEPER

INVOLVEMENT, TO GET THIS JOB

DONE?

AT THIS POINT, I DON'T

BELIEVE WE DO NEED AMERICAN

TROOPS ON THE GROUND.

THE AMERICAN PUBLIC IS VERY

WAR-WEARY.

WE HAVE NOT BEEN HAPPY ABOUT

THE WAY THINGS HAVE GONE IN

IRAQ.

THERE IS NO REASON TO

APPORTION BLAME BETWEEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

PRESIDENT BUSH OR MILITARY

LEADERS IN IRAQ.

WE NEED TO LOOK AT WHAT

NEEDS TO BE DONE NOW AND

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE.

I DON'T BELIEVE WE NEED

AMERICAN BOOTS ON THE GROUND

RIGHT NOW.

I HOPE WE'LL NEVER NET NEED

THEM.

BUT WE DO N NEED AIR

STRIKES, ASSISTING THE IS

KURDS, AND THE SUNNIS, AND

THEY HAVE BE HELPFUL, VERY

HELPFUL, AND THEY NEED TO BE

INTENSIFIED AND INCREASED.

AND WE CAN PROVIDE VITAL

STRATEGIC SUPPORT TO THE

KURDS AND THE OTHERS WHO ARE

RESISTING CRISIS.

LET'S DO THAT, AND LET'S

JOIN WITH THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY IN DOING THAT, AND

LET'S STOP THESE PEOPLE

NOW.

LET'S HOPE IT DOESN'T COME

TO THE NEED TO SEND AMERICAN

TROOPS.

BUT IF IT DOES, WE ARE GOING

TO HAVE TO FIGHT THEM

SOMEWHERE.

DO WE WANT TO FIGHT THEM IN

NEW YORK, TERRORIST ATTACKS,

OR DEFEAT THEM IN IRAQ.

I SAY THE LATTER.

Pat: I TOTALLY CAN'T

CUR.

THANK YOU, DR. GEORGE.

WE WE APPRECIATE YOU BEING

HERE.

THANK YOU, IT IS A

PLEASURE TO BE ON THE SHOW.

Pat: IN OTHER NEWS,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ONCE

AGAIN HAMAS HAS WALKED OUT

OF PEACE TALKS, AND LAUNCHED

MAJOR ATTACKS AGAINST MAJOR

ISRAELI CITIES.

JOHN WAGGI HAS THAT STORY

FROM JERUSALEM.

John: ISRAELI AIR

STRIKES BOOMED IN THE GAZA

DARKNESS, A RESPONSE TO AT

LEAST 50 ROCKETS HAMAS FIRED

INTO ISRAEL.

ISRAEL STRUCK AT LEAST 30

TARGETS IN GAZA.

ONE OF THEM WAS THE HOME OF

HAMAS MILITARY LEADER,

MOHAMMED DEEF, WHO'S WIFE

AND CHILD WERE REPORTED

KILLED.

ONE SPOKESMAN SAYS HELL WILL

BE UNLEASHED ON ISRAEL.

JERUSALEM RETURNED TO A KIND

OF CAUTIONARY NORMAL AFTER

SIRENS SOUNDED TUESDAY, BOTH

HERE IN TEL AVIV.

BUT POLLS SHOW ISRAELIS ARE

IN NO MOOD FOR A DIPLOMATIC

TAP DANCE WITH HAMAS.

THE LATEST POLL TAKEN BEFORE

HAMAS BROKE THE RECENT

CEASE-FIRE SHOWS 58% OF

ISRAELI JEWS WANT TO DEFEAT

HAMAS THROUGH MILITARY

ACTION.

AND A 97% BELIEVE ISRAEL'S

MILITARY IS DOING A GOOD FOR

EXCELLENT JOB.

ISRAELIS WE TALKED TO SEEMED

RESIGNED TO THE IDEA THAT

THE FIGHT MUST CONTINUE,

DESPITE THE HEAVY STRESS OF

THE ROCKET ATTACKS.

I NEVER THOUGHT IN MY

LIFE, 11:00, OR 12:00 AT

NIGHT, SITTING ON MY BED, I

WOULD HEARD THAT SOUND.

AND WE ARE HEARING IT NOW.

WE TRIED TO DO OUR BEST

TO GET THE SITUATION TO BE

GOOD, AND THEY DON'T WANT TO

DO IT.

MAYBE SOMETHING WILL

CHANGE.

MAYBE THE WORLD'S EYES WILL

BE OPENED AND THEY WILL SEE

IT IS NOT NORMAL TO LIVE

LIKE THAT.

THE EVIL -- IT IS NOT US.

Reporter: HAMAS CLAIMS

ISRAEL'S AIR STRIKES WERE

DESIGNED TO THWART THE CAIRO

TALKS.

WE'RE WARNING THE ISRAELI

CONTINGENCY FROM CONTINUING

THIS CEASE-FIRE.

WE PUT THE RESPONSIBILITY ON

ISRAEL FOR THIS CEASE-FIRE

AND IMPLICATIONS OF IT.

John: IT FAILED IN PART

BECAUSE HAMAS WANTED ISRAEL

TO RESTORE PALESTINIAN

ACCESS TO GAZA BY LAND, SEA,

AND AIR, WITHOUT GIVING UP

ITS HUGE STORE OF WEAPONS.

THE SEAPORT AND AIRPORT,

WITHOUT COMMITMENT TOWARDS

THE MILITARIZATION, IS LIKE

A DUTY-FREE WALK.

John: AS THE FIGHTING

RESUMES, ISRAEL IS PURSUING

LEADS.

THE SECURITY AGENCY FOUND A

COLLECTION OF TERROR CELLS

HEADED BY A RING LEADER IN

TURKEY.

THEY WERE GETTING READY TO

LAUNCH A COUP AGAINST THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY IN

RAMALLAH, AND HIT A NUMBER

OF TARGETS, INCLUDING THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: THANKS, JOHN.

I'VE BEEN THINKING, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, WHAT IS

HAMAS' GAME PLAN?

THEY DON'T HAVE BUT SO MUCH

WEAPONRY, AND THEY'VE ONLY

GOT SO MANY ROCKETS.

AND YET THEY'RE FIRING THESE

ROCKETS WILLY-NILLY AT

CITIES IN ISRAEL.

AND THEY'RE TRYING TO

PROVOKE ISRAEL.

AND THEN ISRAEL COMES IN AND

DESTROYS GAZA.

SO WHAT ARE THEY BEING

ADVANTAGED?

HERE IS MY THOUGHT ON IT: IF

YOU READ THE BOOK OF THE

PROPHET EAS EZEKIEL, HE

TALKS ABOUT A COALITION

COMING AGAINST ISRAEL IN THE

LATTER DAYS.

THAT COALITION CONSISTS OF

RUSSIA, CONSISTS OF TURKEY,

CONSISTS OF EASTERN IRAN,

AND CONSISTS OF SUDAN.

THESE ARE THE MAJOR

PLAYERS.

AND THERE IS GOING TO BE A

VAST ARMY COMING AGAINST

ISRAEL IN A PENCER

MOVEMENT.

COULD THIS BE THE TRIGGER OF

THAT?

COULD SOMETHING BE MOVING

HAMAS TOWARDS THAT?

THEY'RE TRYING TO INSIGHT

HEZBOLLAH AND LEBANON TO

COME IN, AND THEY'RE

OBVIOUSLY TRYING TO INSIGHT

THE IRANIANS TO COME IN.

THEY OBVIOUSLY WANT A

BROADER WEAR AN WAR AND

THEY WANT TO TAKE DOWN

ISRAEL.

BUT COULD THIS BE THE

PRECURSOR TO THE PROPHET

PROPHECY YOU FIND IN

EZEKIEL?

AND I THINK IT COULD BE.

IT IS VERY POSSIBLE.

IT IS SETTING UP FOR THAT.

BECAUSE ISRAEL, WE ALL

ACKNOWLEDGE, HAS A RIGHT TO

DEFEND ITSELF.

BUT SOONER OR LATER THE

NATIONS ARE GOING TO SAY,

OH, BUT YOU'RE TOO EXTREME.

YOU'RE NOT PROPORTIONATE TO

THE FACT THAT THEY'RE

SENDING SOME ROCKETS AND

YOU'RE BLOWING UP THEIR

BUILDINGS.

IT WILL COME DOWN TO THAT.

AND THE PRESS WILL SPIN IT

AGAINST ISRAEL.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

BUT RIGHT NOW EGYPT IS ON

THE SIDE OF ISRAEL.

AND IT'S TIME TO THAT THE

UNITED STATES' STATE

DEPARTMENT RECOGNIZE WE'VE

GOT A FRIEND IN EGYPT, AND

WE OUGHT TO SUPPORT HIM.

AND WE'VE GOT A FRIEND IN

THE PESHMERGA UP IN NORTHERN

IRAQ, AND WE OUGHT TO

SUPPORT THEM.

AND WE'VE GOT A GREAT FRIEND

IN ISRAEL, AND WE NEED TO

SUPPORT THEM.

WE SHOULD NOT SUPPORT THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

WE SHOULD NOT SUPPORT

HAMAS.

AND WE SHOULD NOT SUPPORT

TERRORISTS.

AND IF WE WAKE UP TO WHO THE

FRIENDS ARE AND WHO THE

ENEMIES ARE, THE UNITED

STATES MAY BE ON THE RIGHT

SIDE.

BUT ON THIS ONE, I THINK

THEY'RE GOING TO BE HANDS

OFF, AND WE'LL LEAD FROM

BEHIND AND WE WON'T GET

INVOLVED.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS WILL HAPPEN.

WENDY?

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

COMING UP, WHAT'S WORSE THAN

A LONG WAIT AT THE DOCTOR'S

OFFICE?

HOW ABOUT THERE NOT BEING A

DOCTOR'S OFFICE IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

HEAR WHY MANY DOCTORS ARE

SHUTTING THEIR DOORS, NEXT.

Pat: YOU KNOW

SOMETHING, THE GOVERNMENT

ISN'T EFFICIENT.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE.

HOW DID YOU COME TO THAT

BRILLIANT CONCLUSION?

THEY DON'T DO ANYTHING

RIGHT.

AND THIS OBAMACARE HAS BEEN

A MASSIVE DISASTER.

ONE-SIXTH OF THE AMERICAN

ECONOMY, AND THIS MAN, WITH

HIS SOCIALIST TENDENCIES

WANTED TO TAKE CONTROL OF

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, AND

HE MESSED IT UP.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTH

CARE, YOU CAN KEEP IT.

A LIE.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR, YOU

CAN KEEP HIM.

ANOTHER LIE.

AND NOW THEY HAVE ANOTHER

LIE COMING DOWN, AND IT

COULD BE BAD ENOUGH TO PUT

YOUR FAMILY DOCTOR

COMPLETELY OUT OF BUSINESS.

Reporter: THE SMALL

TOWN OF FARMVILLE, VIRGINIA,

HAS TWO PRIVATE

PRACTITIONERS, OR WHAT WE

USED TO KNOW AS FAMILY

DOCTORS.

AND ONE OF THEM,

DR. LAWRENCE VARNER, IS

CONSIDERING CLOSING HIS

DOORS AFTER MORE THAN 20

YEARS OF SERVICE.

IF ANYONE FINISHES

MEDICAL SCHOOL NOW AND HAS

THE LEAST THOUGHTS OF

OPENING A SOLO PRACTICE,

THEY WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY

INSANE.

THERE IS NO WAY.

Reporter: THANKS TO

INCREASED PRESSURE FROM THE

GOVERNMENT, MEDICARE, AND

THE INSURANCE COMPANIES,

VERNER SAYS HE NO LONGER

RECOGNIZES THE PRACTICE OF

MEDICINE.

I STARTED WHEN THINGS

WERE GOOD, WHEN PHYSICIANS

WERE PHYSICIANS AND THEY

COULD DO WHAT WAS BEST FOR

THE PATIENTS, AND NOT HAVE

TO CRAWL AND BEG TO

INSURANCE COMPANIES TO GET

CERTAIN TESTS APPROVED.

Reporter: GOVERNMENT

INTERVENTION WAS SUPPOSED TO

IMPROVE PATIENT CARE.

INSTEAD, DOCTORS SAY THEY

FEEL LIKE CLERKS, STUCK

BEHIND THEIR COMPUTERS,

INSTEAD OF TAKING CARE OF

THEIR PATIENTS.

ONE EXAMPLE OF THAT

GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION IS

ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS,

OR E.M.R.

PHYSICIANS RECEIVED

INCENTIVES TO BUY INTO

E.M.R.

> THE SYSTEM PROMISED TO

MAKE THEIR LIVES EASIER, BUT

ACCORDING TO VERNER'S LIFE,

IT HAS DONE THE EXACT

OPPOSITE.

HOMOHEAD IS OUT THE ROOF

BECAUSE IT TAKES MORE PEOPLE

TO DO IT.

IT SAYS WE'LL BE PAPERLESS,

AND WE ARE BUYING MORE PAPER

THAN EVER.

IT HAS JUST BACKFIRED AND WE

ARE NEVER DONE.

WHEREAS BEFORE, WE WERE

LATE, BUT IT WAS DONE.

Reporter: TIME PUT IN

AT THE OFFICE SEEMS ENDLESS,

AS DO SACRIFICES TO KEEP THE

PRACTICE RUNNING.

FAMILY, LIKE OUR

YOUNGEST, HE IS 19, AND HE

IS HOME ALONE A LOT.

WE'RE PHYSICALLY THERE, BUT

WE'RE NOT WORKING.

Reporter: AN INCREASING

NUMBER OF DOCTORS ARE

CLOSING THEIR DOOR ON

PRIVATE PRACTICE.

OTHERS ARE BEING ACQUIRED BY

PRIVATE HOSPITALS, HOPING TO

COMBAT THEIR LOSS OF

REVENUE.

FOUR YEARS AGO, VERNER LAID

OUT TWO CONDITIONS: ONE,

CONTINUE WORKING IN THE

BUILDING HE OWES.

AND, TWO, KEEPING HIS DOCTOR

ON AS ONE OF HIS NURSES.

AT THE END OF TWO YEARS,

THEY DECIDED THEY WANTED TO

MOVE ME.

AND WOULD NOT HONOR THE

COMMITMENT TO THE OFFICE

BUILDING.

AND THEN A MONTH AFTER THEY

TOLD ME THAT, THEY SAID AND

SAID MY DAUGHTERS COULD NO

LONGER WORK HERE.

Reporter: AFTER THE

THREE-YEAR CONTRACT, VERNER

WENT BACK INTO PRIVATE

PRACTICE, AND THINGS HAD

GOTTEN WORSE.

I'M MAKING THE EQUIVALENT

OF $12 AN HOUR, AND MY WIFE

IS MAKING $2.90 SINCE

JANUARY 1st.

Reporter: SO WHY NOT

JUST CLOSE THE DOORS?

VERNER SAYS IT IS A MIX OF

REFUSING TO BE PUSHED AROUND

AND A LOVE FOR HIS PATIENTS,

PATIENTS WHO LOVE HIM BACK.

RAY FAUCET IS ONE OF THEM.

HE HAS BEEN SEEING

DR. VERNER FOR 25 YEARS.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THE

PRESSURE GETS TO BE TOO MUCH

AND HE IS FORCED TO CLOSE

THE DOORS OF HIS PRACTICE?

THE MAJOR STRAIN IS THAT

DR. VERNER KNOWS OUR MINDS

AND OUR BODIES SO WELL THAT

IT TAKES YEARS FOR ANOTHER

DOCTOR TO BUILD THAT RAPPORT

WITH US.

Reporter: REGARDLESS OF

THE INTENTIONS OF THE

ADMINISTRATION, THE RESULTS

IN THE MEDICAL WORLD ARE

DISTURBING.

DR. VERNER'S MESSAGE TO THE

GOVERNMENT?

STOP BEING THE PROBLEM.

I'VE GOT THE COMPUTER

SYSTEM.

I'VE GOT THE E.M.R., LET ME

USE IT IN THE WAY THAT FITS

MY PRACTICE AND MY PATIENTS,

AND NOT BECAUSE OF SOME

RULES AND REGULATIONS FROM

SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T HAVE A

CLUE WITH REGARD TO PATIENT

CARE.

THAT WOULD BE A BIG STEP.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS, FARMVILLE,

VIRGINIA.

Pat: WE NEED A

REVOLUTION IN THIS COUNTRY

TO CHANGE THIS.

I HAD A LITTLE PROCEDURE

DONE, AND I'M SITTING THERE,

AND THIS NURSE IS SAYING,

WELL, TELL US ABOUT THIS.

AND SHE IS ACCESSING IN THE

COMPUTER.

WELL, HOW MANY VITAMINS DO

YOU TAKE?

HOW ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE?

AND WHEN DID YOU HAVE --

DAH, DAH, DAH -- AND SHE

SPENT FOREVER AND EVER

LOGGING STUFF INTO THE

COMPUTER.

THEY WANT ALL OF THOSE

RECORDS.

HOW ABOUT ME, I'M SICK, HELP

ME.

TOO BAD, WE'VE GOT TO GET

THE RECORDS DONE.

Wendy: AND AS THAT LADY

SAID IN THE PIECE, THEY'RE

NEVER DONE.

THEY'RE OVERRUN BY

PAPERWORK.

Pat: AND A DOCTOR

WORKING FOR $12 AN HOUR AND

HIS WIFE WORKING FOR $

$2.90.

IT ISN'T RIGHT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE

NEED A REVOLUTION TO STOP

THESE PEOPLE FROM RUINING

THE COUNTRY.

BUT WE'RE GETTING TO THE

TIPPING POINT.

IT IS NOT A PLEASANT

SCENARIO.

I DIDN'T SOT FO VOTE FOR

HIM, AND MAYBE YOU DIDN'T

VOTE FOR HIM, BUT THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE VOTED HIM

INTO OFFICE TWICE, AND THIS

IS THE RUNNING MATE.

RESULT.

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

Wendy: IT MAKES YOU

PRAY FOR OUR DOCTOR.

GREAT PIECE, CAITLIN.

UP NEXT, NO MONEY, NO JOBS,

AND HERE IS A SURPRISING WAY

THAT ONE FAMILY HAS MANAGED

TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, WHEN CHRIS

LOST HIS JOB, HE HAD NO IDEA

HOW HE WAS GOING TO FEED HIS

FAMILY.

AT ONE POINT HE EVEN PAWNED

HIS WEDDING RING TO GET

ENOUGH CASH FOR GROCERIES.

THAT'S WHEN CHRIS FOUND

MUCH-NEEDED HELP FROM CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING."

WATCH THIS.

Reporter: CHRIS HAWKER

WAS GOOD AT HIS JOB,

FABRICATING GRANITE

COUNTERTOPS.

THINGS WERE GOING WELL UNTIL

THE LOCAL ECONOMY TOOK A

HIT.

PEOPLE STOPPED BEING

COUNTERTOPS, AND CHRIS LOST

HIS JOB.

WHEN HE GOT THE NEWS HE

WAS BEING LET GO, HE WAS

HEARTBROKEN.

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WERE

GOING TO MAKE IT.

BEING USED TO HAVING

ENOUGH INCOME TO PAY THE

BILLS, PROVIDE FOOD AND

DIAPERS AND EVERYTHING FOR

THE BABY.

RECENTLY LOSING A FULL-TIME

JOB, IT HAS BEEN A

STRUGGLE.

Reporter: CHRIS WORKED

A PART-TIME JOB AT NIGHT,

TAKING CARE OF MENTALLY

CHALLENGED ADULTS.

HE ENJOYED HELPING PEOPLE,

BUT THE HOURS JUST WEREN'T

ENOUGH TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

THINGS HAPPEN, AND WE

JUST HAVE TO COPE WITH IT,

ADJUST TO IT, AND DRIVE

ONMENT.

Reporter ON.

THEY SOLD THINGS ON THE

INTERNET TO HELP THEM GET BY

WHILE CHRIS LOOKED FOR

WORK.

ONE MONTH WHEN THEY DIDN'T

HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD,

CHRIS EVEN SOLD HIS WEDDING

RING.

IT HAS NOT BEEN EASY

SINCE HE LOST HIS FULL-TIME

JOB.

Reporter: CHRIS AND

RACHEL TURNED TO THEIR

CHURCH FOR PRAYER AND

SUPPORT.

CHRIS LEARNED ABOUT THE OUT

REACH.

I WAS ALWAYS THE ONE TO

DONATE, AND I NEVER THOUGHT

I WOULD BE ON THE OTHER END

OF IT, NEEDING THE HELP.

BUT IT HAS BEEN A BLESSING

TO ME AND MY FAMILY.

Reporter: "NEW

BEGINNINGS" PROVIDES FOOD TO

100 LOCAL FAMILIES EVERY

MONTH.

WE WANT TO SHOW PEOPLE

THE REAL COMPASSION OF GOD'S

LOVE.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HELPS

US TO PRESENT TO THEM YOU'RE

NOT JUST A NUMBER, YOU'RE A

PERSON.

PEOPLE LOVE YOU AND GOD

LOVES YOU.

Reporter: THANKS TO THE

HELP OF "OPERATION

BLESSING," CHRIS IS NOW ABLE

TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE FOR

HIS WIFE AND BABY, AND PAY

ALL OF THE BILLS, WHILE HE

CONTINUES TO SEARCH FOR

FULL-TIME WORK.

THE FOOD THAT WE RECEIVE

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING"

HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS.

WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING WONDERING HOW YOU'RE

GOING TO PROVIDE FOR YOUR

FAMILY, IT BROUGHT TEARS TO

MY EYES TO THINK IN THE

DESPERATION I'M IN, FROM IS

A LITTLE RESPITE.

Pat: THAT COULD BE

YOU.

THAT COULD BE YOU.

YOU'RE LAID OFF FROM YOUR

JOB, YOUR SAVINGS ARE

DEPLETED, AND YOU'VE GOT A

FAMILY, AND THERE IS NOT

ENOUGH MONEY FOR FOOD.

WE HAVE A HUNGER STRIKE

FORCE WITH THESE TRUCKS THAT

GO AROUND AND THEY PICK UP

PRODUCE AT FARMS AND THEY

BUY GROCERIES AND THEY GO --

WE'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF

SOURCES, AND THEY DELIVER

SOMETHING IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD OF

100 MILLION POUNDS OF FOOD

EVERY YEAR, ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY, SO THAT PEOPLE

WON'T GO HUNGRY.

SO THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS

YOU DO WHEN YOU JOIN "THE

700 CLUB," IS YOU ARE

HELPING PEOPLE LIKE CHRIS.

AND MILLIONS OF OTHERS LIKE

HIM, NOT ONLY IN THIS

COUNTRY, BUT AROUND THE

WORLD.

BUT WE DO A LOT HERE IN

AMERICA.

SO PICK UP THE PHONE AND

CALL AND SAY, LOOK, I WANT

TO CARE FOR SOMEBODY LESS

FORTUNATE.

I'M SO GRATEFUL I'VE GOT A

JOB, I'VE GOT MONEY IN THE

BANK, I'VE GOT ENOUGH MONEY

TO PAY MY BILLS AND TAKE

CARE OF MY NEEDS.

HOW WONDERFUL TO HELP

SOMEBODY ELSE WHO IS NOT

QUITE AS FORTUNATE.

FOR THOSE WHO DO, WE'RE

GOING TO SEND YOU SOMETHING

CALLED "LIVING UNDER GOD'S

BLESSING."

IT'S A D.V.D. THAT GORDON

AND I HAVE DONE.

ONE HAS TO DO WITH THE FEAST

OF TABERNACLE MESSAGE I GAVE

IN JERUSALEM, AND THE OTHER

IS A TEACHING THAT GORDON

DOES.

WE'LL SEND THIS TO YOU AS

OUR GIFT TO YOU.

PLEASE CALL.

LET'S HELP PEOPLE.

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

LET'S JUST ALL GET TOGETHER

AND WE CAN HELP PEOPLE LIKE

CHRIS AND OTHERS LIKE HIM.

Wendy: PAT, PEOPLE ARE

LOVING THIS D.V.D. CALLED

"LIVING UNDER GOD'S

BLESSING."

JOHN AND CONSTANCE WROTE IN

AND SAID, "WE ARE EXTREMELY

GRATEFUL TO RECEIVE "LIVING

UNDER GOD'S BLESSING," AND

IT IS BEAUTIFULLY TOLD.

WE ARE REJOICING WHAT GOD IS

DOING FOR ISRAEL AND HIS

PEOPLE."

SO YOU WANT TO BE SURE TO

GET IT AS WELL.

STILL AHEAD, HE IS AN ARCTIC

FOR THE SEAHAWKS'

CHAMPIONSHIP WINNING

DEFENSE, BUT THAT IS NOT THE

ONLY THING ON HIS RESUME.

THAT GAME IS OVER.

WE'RE ALREADY ON TO THE NEXT

THING.

AS SOON AS YOU PUTS IT AS

THIS DEFINES ME, IT IS VERY

DISAPPOINTING.

ONLY JESUS FULFILLS THAT

TRUE MEANING.

AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO PUT

PAT TO THE TEST DURING

ANOTHER ROUND OF "BRING IT

ON," SO STAY TUNED.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

AN IOWA JUDGE HAS RULED IN

FAVOR OF BANNING THE USE OF

VIDEO CONFERENCES TO

DISTRIBUTE PILLS THAT INDUCE

ABORTIONS.

CBN NEWS EXPOSED THIS

CONTROVERSIAL PRACTICE

CALLED TELEMED ABORTION

THREES AGO.

A DISTRICT JUDGE RULED THE

STATE'S BOARD OF MEDICINE

HAS THE AUTHORITY TO

REGULATE IT.

THE CURRENT VIDEO

CONFERENCING SYSTEM ALLOWS

DOCTORS IN BIGGER CITIES TO

DISTRIBUTE ABORTION-INDUCING

PILLS TO WOMEN IN RURAL

CLINICS.

THE RULES REQUIRE A DOCTOR

TO BE PHYSICALLY PRESENT

WITH A WOMAN WHEN THOSE

DRUGS ARE PROVIDED.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SAYS IT

WILL APPEAL THE DECISION.

SUPPORT IS SLIPPING FOR THE

COMMON CORE, THE NEW FEDERAL

EDUCATION STANDARDS.

THE STUDY FROM STANFORD'S

HOOVER INSTITUTION FOUND 47%

BACK THE COMMON CORE,

COMPARED TO 70% A YEAR AGO.

AND 47% OPPOSE COMMON CORE,

COMPARED TO 12% LAST YEAR.

AND THE STANDARDS HAVE

BECOME INCREASINGLY

POLARIZED.

65% OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC

FAVORED THE STANDARDS LAST

YEAR, AND TODAY IT IS DOWN

TO 53%.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: THURSDAY,

SEPTEMBER 4th, THAT'S THE

DAY FOOTBALL FANS IN THE

PACIFIC NORTHWEST HAVE

CIRCLED ON THEIR CALENDARS

BECAUSE THAT'S THE DAY THE

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS BEGIN THEIR

DEFENSE.

THEY WON THE SUPER BOWL

THANKS TO THE EN GERALDO

INNOVATIVE PLAY-MAKERS ON

THE SIDE.

RECENTLY CBN NEWS SPOKE TO

ROCKY SETO.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: IT IS THE HUB

OF EVERY NFL CHAMPIONSHIP

SEASON, A HEAD COACH,

COORDINATOR, AND STAFF, WHO

POSITION THEIR ELITE

DEFENSE.

BUT THE COACHING STAFF HAS

ROCKY SETO.

CONNECTING THOSE DEFENSIVE

SPOKES THAT KEEP THE SUPER

BOWL WHEELS SPINNING.

MY JOB IS TO HELP THE

COACHES AND HELP EVERYONE

BECOME SUCCESSFUL.

THE SEAHAWKS WERE THE FIRST

TO COME UP WITH THAT TITLE.

I LOOK AT EVERYTHING.

I'M ANOTHER SET OF EYES.

Reporter: THE SEAHAWKS

ARE STARING DOWN SUSTAINED

SUCCESS AS THE YOUNGEST

SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS IN NFL

HISTORY.

GOD HAS BLESSED US WITH

GREAT PLAYERS.

Reporter: LAST SEASON'S

TITLE TEAM LED IN POINTS AND

TOUCHDOWN.

WE PLAY AS HARD AS WE

CAN, AND EXECUTE THE

TECHNIQUE AS WELL AS WE CAN,

AND LET'S FLY WITH IT.

IT PROMOTES A BROTHERHOOD,

PLAYING WITH EACH OTHER.

WE DEMAND FOR EACH PLAYER

AND COACH TO PERFORM THEIR

JOB AND HIGHLIGHT THEIR

TALENTS.

Reporter: ROCKY'S

LEADERSHIP AND SKILLS HAVE

PAIRED HIM WITH PETE CAROL

FOR 14 YEARS, NINE OF THEM

AT USC.

AND COACH CAROL ADVOCATES

TACKLING TECHNIQUES TO

ENHANCE PLAYER SAFETY AT ALL

LEVELS OF FOOTBALL.

HE IS THE GUY WHO RAISED

ME UP IN COACHING.

I SEE HIM AS A FRIEND.

I SEE HIM AS A MENTOR.

I THINK THERE IS AN ULTIMATE

AMOUNT OF COMMUNICATION, AND

I HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF

RESPECT FOR HIM.

HE HAS BEEN WITH ME THE

LONGEST, AND I RELY ON ROCKY

THE MOST TO KEEP THE MESSAGE

TRUE AND TO STICK TO IT.

HE IS KIND OF THE KEEPER OF

THE RECORDS AROUND HERE.

HE KNOWS WHEN I START TO GET

OFF-BASE OR GOING DOWN THE

WRONG ROAD, AND I COUNT ON

HIM.

IT IS A ROLE THAT REALLY

NOBODY ELSE CAN PLAY.

Reporter: LEARNING TO

PLAY TO ROLE DIDN'T COME

EASY.

ROCKY'S EARLY NEED FOR

AFFIRMATION FUELED THIS ONE

GOAL IN HIS HOME TOWN OF

LOS ANGELES.

I USED TO PLAY FOOTBALL

FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF

CALIFORNIA.

I THOUGHT I WOULD BE

SOMETHING IF I COULD PLAY

BALL THERE.

I KNOW MY DAD ENJOYED IT,

AND MY DAD LOOKED UP TO IT.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, IF ONLY

I COULD DO THIS, I COULD

MAKE HIM PROUD.

AND THAT DROVE ME.

THAT DROVE ME HARD.

Reporter: SO HARD THAT

AFTER TWO YEARS OF JUNIOR

COLLEGE, ROCKY WALKED ON AT

USC AS LINEBACKER.

THE NEXT YEAR HE WA WAS

AWARDED A SCHOLARSHIP.

I TOLD MY POP, I HAVE

SOMETHING TO TELL, THAT THEY

GAVE ME A SCHOLARSHIP.

AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE

GREATEST THRILLS OF MY

LIFE.

AND MY DAD LOOKED AT ME AND,

YOU KNOW, YOU MADE ME

BELIEVE IN THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Reporter: HE THEN

JOINED THE COACHING STAFF AS

A VOLUNTEER ASSISTANT.

OPPORTUNITIES AROSE.

ROCKY TURNED DOWN NFL AND

COLLEGIATE OFFERS BEFORE

BEING PROMOTED TO DEFENSIVE

COORDINATOR.

HE WAS RELEASED AFTER CAROL

WAS HIRED IN SEATTLE.

ROCKY FOLLOWED, TAKING AN

ENTRY LEVEL POSITION.

MY IDENTITY WITH JESUS,

WRAPPED WITH COACHING AND

USC, AND THE LORD STRIPPED

ME OF THOSE THINGS AND

HUMBLED ME.

AT THE TIME IT WAS

DIFFICULT, BUT LOOKING BACK,

I'M LIKE, WOW, THIS IS

GREAT.

Reporter: HE HELPS

TACKLE INSTRUCTION,

SITUATIONAL DEFENSE AND GAME

PLANNING.

EACH PLAYING TO ROCKY'S

STRENGTH, EMPOWERING OTHERS

IN THEIR ASSIGNMENT.

YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW WHO

YOU'RE WORKING WITH SO YOU

CAN MEET THEIR NEEDS.

HE IS VERY GENUINE, AND

HIS HEART IS RIGHT.

YOU CAN TELL, THE WAY HE

TALKS AND CARRIES HIMSELF,

HE IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT

GOD AND VERY PASSIONATE

ABOUT FOOTBALL.

HE HAS HELPED ME AS A

FOOTBALL PLAYER AND

SPIRITUALLY.

HE CAN KIND OF TELL WHEN I'M

DOWN.

HE DESERVES A LOT OF CREDIT

BECAUSE HE IS DEFINITELY A

KEY FIGURE IN OUR SUCCESS

HERE IN SEATTLE.

Reporter: IT IS THE

DAILY CHARGE HERE AT 12

SEAHAWKS WAY, ALWAYS

COMPETE, BRINGING THE BEST

OUT OF THE PLAYERS, THE

TEAM, AND THE ORGANIZATION.

BUT THE FOUNDATION FOR

COMPETITION RUNS MUCH DEEPER

AND BROADER, DRAWING THE

BEST OUT OF THE PERSON.

THE COMPETITION IS

COMPETING WITH YOURSELF, TO

SEE HOW GOOD YOU CAN BE.

IN ESSENCE, YOU REVERE

THAT MAN IN FRONT OF WHO IS

PUSHING YOU TO HIGHER LEVELS

OF PLAY.

HELPING US TO GET BETTER.

OUR COACHING STYLE IS WE

LIKE TO BUILD A RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE PLAYERS.

HOW CAN WE MED TH MEET THE

NEEDS OF THE PLAYERS SO THEY

CAN BE AS GOOD AS THEY CAN

BE.

AND AS A BY-PRODUCT OF THAT,

THERE HAPPENED TO BE A SUPER

BOWL.

Reporter: EMPHASIZING

ACHIEVEMENT WITH LASTING

PURPOSE.

THE SUPER BOWL IS

AWESOME.

IT FEELS GREAT.

IT WAS AWESOME.

IT WAS A LIFE-LONG DREAM, TO

BE ABLE TO BE PART OF THAT.

BUT, STILL, JESUS IS WAY

BETTER.

BECAUSE THAT GAME HAS COME

AND GONE.

IT'S OVER.

WE'RE ALREADY ON TO THE NEXT

THING.

AS SOON AS YOU PUT IT AS

THIS DEFINES ME, IT IS A

VERY DISAPPOINTING THING.

ONLY JESUS FULFILLS THAT

ROLE OF TRUE MEANING.

Reporter: ROCKY'S

COMMITMENT REACHES A

CRESHENDO WHEN ASKED WHERE

HIS LEGIONS LIE.

MY PURPOSE IS FOR MY WIFE

AND CHILDREN AND JESUS.

JESUS IS THE KING OF MY

LIFE.

HE IS THE OWNER OF MY LIFE.

HE OWNS ME, DOMINATES ME.

I'M UNDER THE KING THAT

TAKES CARE OF EVERY SINGLE

THING I WOULD EVER HOPE FOR

OR WANT IN MY LIFE.

HE IS THE KING THAT I

SERVE.

HE IS THE KING I LOOK TO FOR

AFFIRMATION.

HE IS MY IDENTITY.

HE HAS TAKEN CARE OF

EVERYTHING FOR ME.

Reporter: ROCKY SETO,

EMPASSIONEPASSIONED AND

MISSION-MINDED.

THE REASON I COACH IS TO

ADVANCE THE GOSPEL MESSAGE

OF JESUS CHRIST.

BY GOD'S GRACE, I HOPE

THAT'S WHAT IT COMES DOWN

TO.

I HOPE THAT'S MY MESSAGE.

Wendy: WINNING THE

SUPER BOWL WAS GREAT, HE

SAID, BUT JESUS WAS EVEN

BETTER.

ROCKY, I'VE GOT TO SAY, YOU

ROCK.

THIS IS AWESOME.

IF YOU'RE STILL HUNGRY FOR

SOME FOOTBALL, HEAD OVER TO

OUR CBN SPORTS Facebook

PAGE, AND YOU CAN WATCH

INTERVIEWS WITH TODAY'S TOP

ATHLETES AND MORE.

PAT, I'M ALWAYS SO AMAZED

WITH HOW MUCH THESE AMAZING

SPORTS FIGURES LOVE JESUS.

Pat: IT IS REMARKABLE.

BIG, TOUGH GUYS, AND THE

THING IS MANY PEOPLE THINK

THAT JESUS IS FOR LITTLE OLD

LADIES AND LITTLE CHILDREN.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.

Pat: BUT THESE ARE

TOUGH MEN, THE TOUGHEST IN

THE BUSINESS, AND THEY LOVE

THE LORD.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

Wendy: AMEN.

WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT

QUESTIONS.

SARAH WROTE IN, "MY SON IS

NINE YEARS OLD AND DECIDED

TO STAY WITH HIS DAD BECAUSE

HE HAS NO RULES OR STRUCTURE

THERE.

HIS DAD IS NOT A GOOD

INFLUENCE ON HIM BECAUSE HE

HAS A DRUG PROBLEM.

MY SON HAS AD/HD AND MENTAL

PROBLEMS, AND I TRY TO SHOW

HIM GOD'S PATH FOR HIS LIFE,

BUT HIS DAD PREACHES THE

OPPOSITE, WANTS NOTHING TO

DO WITH GOD.

ALL I DO IS PRAY AND TRY TO

BE POSITIVE.

I KNOW GOD GAVE ME MY SON

FOR A REASON, BUT HOW CAN I

FORCE HIM TO BE WITH ME WHEN

HE DOESN'T WANT TO BE AROUND

ANYONE WHO WANTS RULES?"

Pat: I DON'T UNDERSTAND

THE TOTAL SITUATION THERE,

BUT NORMALLY IN A SITUATION

LIKE THAT, THE MOTHER IS

GIVEN CUSTODY BY THE COURT.

AND THE FATHER, WHO

APPARENTLY IS USING DRUGS,

COULD EVEN BE DENIED ANY

VISITATION.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR

SITUATION IS, BUT I THINK

YOU NEED TO CALL SOME MATURE

HELP FROM EITHER A LAWYER OR

SOME COUNSELLOR.

BUT THAT KID IS OUT OF

CONTROL.

WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT IS A

TRAIN WRECK.

WHEN HE LOOKS TO BE 17 OR

18, HE'S GOING TO GET A CAR

AND HE IS GOING TO SMASH A

CAR AND KILL SOMEBODY, AND

HE IS GOING TO WIND UP IN

PRISON.

SO DO SOMETHING FOR HIM, IF

YOU CAN, NOW.

INTERVENE.

IF YOU HAVE TO GET THE COURT

SYSTEM TO HELP YOU, I THINK

YOU'LL HAVE THE UPPER HAND.

HE IS JUST A KID AFTER ALL.

MAKE HIM BEHAVE.

HE IS NINE YEARS OLD.

HE CAN'T RUN BUT SO MUCH.

SO HE SCREAMS AND YELLS.

GET SOME BIG MAN -- I

SHOULDN'T SAY SLAP HIM

AROUND.

Wendy: I'M SURE THE

JUDGE WOULD BE INTERESTED TO

KNOW THAT THE DAD IS DOING

DRUGS.

I THINK THAT WOULD BE IN HER

FAVOR.

Pat: I CAN'T IMAGINE

THIS SITUATION HAS GOTTEN TO

WHERE IT IS.

BUT YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO

HELP YOU, SOMEBODY MAYBE IN

A CHURCH, SOME MALE FIGURE,

BUT A BIG, STRONG MAN CAN

MAKE A LITTLE KID BEHAVE A

WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN A LADY

CAN.

Wendy: DARLA WRITES, "I

SEE IN SONGS WHERE GOD HAS

WRATH AGAINST ISRAEL OVER

AND OVER, BUT HE ALSO HAD

WRATH AGAINST THOSE AROUND

HIM, ESPECIALLY WHEN HE HAS

COMPASSION ON THE NATION.

CAN WE APPLY THE SONGS WHERE

THE ENEMY IS COMING AGAINST

ISRAEL TO AMERICA AS WELL,

SEEING THE ENEMY DESTROYED

AS GOD DESTROYED THEM WHEN

THEY CAME TO FIGHT ISRAEL.

OR ARE THE CHAPTERS MORE FOR

ISRAEL BECAUSE IT WAS

WRITTEN --" I'M GETTING

CONFUSED.

Pat: SIGNED WHAT YOU'RE

SAYING.

THE PSALMS ARE WRITTEN FOR

ISRAEL AND DAVID, A WARRIOR

AND KING OF ISRAEL.

SO THIS APPLIES TO ISRAEL.

THERE ARE TRUTHS THAT CAN BE

GLEAMED IN THE PSALMS THAT

WE TAKE FOR OUR OWN LIVES

AND USE THEM.

IF IT SAYS GOD SHOWS HIS

WRATH AGAINST THE

PHILISTINES OR MOAB -- YOU

WANT TO SAY THAT'S AMERICA

OR THAT'S CHINA?

NO, IT'S NOT.

IT IS MOAB.

READ IT LIKE IT SAYS.

DON'T PULL TOO MANY

SPIRITUAL TRUTHS FROM THINGS

LIKE THAT.

BUT THERE ARE TRUTHS THAT

ARE ETERNAL, THAT SPEAK TO

THE RELATIONSHIP OF GOD TO

HUMANITY.

Wendy: PAT, WHEN IT

SAYS "O, JERUSALEM, YOU'RE

THE APPLE OF MY EYE," CAN WE

PUT OUR NAM OUR COUNTRY IN

THERE?

Pat: WELL, NOT REALLY.

JERUSALEM IS THE APPLE OF

HIS EYE.

I CAN ENGRAVE IN THE WALLS

OF THE PALM OF MY HAND.

WELL, THAT'S NOT WASHINGTON,

D.C. OR PARIS OR LONDON --

IT'S JERUSALEM.

Wendy: KAY WRITES

IN, "WHEN WE DIE, DO WE

SLEEP UNTIL THE CAPTURE WHEN

JESUS RETURNS, OR DO WE GO

TO HEAVEN OR HELL AT THE

MOMENT OF DEATH?

I HAVE HEARD IT TOLD BOTH

WAYS."

Pat: THE CONCEPT OF

HAITIS SEEMS TO BE A HOLDING

PLACE.

I DON'T BELIEVE IN SOLE

SLEEP.

SLEEP.

I DON'T BELIEVE THE BIBLE

TEACHES THAT.

LAZARUS WAS IN ABRAHAM'S

BOSOM.

THE RICH MAN WAS BEING

TORMENTED IN THE FLAME, AND

ABRAHAM WAS THERE.

THEY ARE ALL CONSCIOUS.

THEY WERE ALL TALKING TO

EACH OTHER.

THEY WEREN'T SLEEPING.

THEY WERE ALL ENGAGED IN

ACTIVITY.

FINALLY AT THE GREAT WHITE

THRONE OF JUDGMENT, IT WILL

ALL BE SET FOREVER.

RIGHT NOW THERE IS AN

INTERMEDIATE STAGE, IT SEEMS

LIKE TO ME.

Wendy: TO BE ABSENT IN

THE BODY IS TO BE PRESENT

WITH THE LORD -- WHAT ABOUT

THAT SCRIPTURE?

Pat: WELL, ABSENT FROM

THE BODY AND PRESENT WITH

THE LORD, THAT WAS THE

APOSTLE PAUL SAYING WHAT HE

WOULD RATHER BE.

HE WOULD RATHER BE ABSENT

FROM THE BODY AND WITH THE

LORD, BUT TO REMAIN IN THE

FLESH IS NEEDFUL FOR YOU.

HE SAID HE WOULD RATHER BE

WITH THE LORD.

THERE WAS NO INTERMEDIATE

STAGE THERE.

Wendy: RIGHT.

Pat: AND I THINK THAT'S

WHAT PEOPLE TRY TO TALK

ABOUT, AN INTERMEDIATE

STAGE, SOME PURGATORY.

IT'S NOT THERE.

I'M EITHER IN THE FLESH OR

I'M GOING TO BE WITH THE

LORD.

Wendy: WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO WRAP IT UP RIGHT

THERE.

Pat: THANK YOU FOR THE

QUESTIONS.

Wendy: GREAT QUESTIONS

AND GREAT ANSWERS, AS

ALWAYS.

UP NEXT, HE WAS MEAN, HE WAS

CRUEL, AND HIS TAPS TOLD HIS

STORY.

I WANTED MEAN, EVIL STUFF

ON MY ARMS.

I WANTED TO DESTROY

EVERYBODY.

Wendy: SEE HOW HE

ALMOST DESTROYED HIMSELF

UNTIL A VOICE SET HIM

STRAIGHT.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US ON THIS EDITION.

I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO

TRACY KOVACH.

TRACY IS NOT THE KIND OF GUY

YOU WOULD WANT TO CROSS.

HE WAS COVERED WITH TATTOOS.

HE LOOKED DOWNRIGHT SCARY.

FOR 20 YEARS TRACY WREAKED

HAVOC WHEREVER HE WENT.

THEN ONE DAY POLICE STORMED

HIS HOUSE WITH GRENADES, AND

THE JIG FOR TRACY WAS UP.

Reporter: THE TATTOOS

TELL THE STORY OF HIS LIFE.

THESE SKULLS, THESE WERE

HOW I FELT IN MY LIFE.

I WANTED EVIL.

I WANTED MEAN, EVIL STUFF ON

MY ARMS.

Reporter: TRACY KOVACH

WAS A DRUG ADDICT, A WANTED

CRIMINAL, AND FULL OF HATE

AND RAGE.

THIS ONE HERE IS THE

SYMBOL OF CHAOS, WHICH MY

LIFE, AND MY HEAD, WAS

NOTHING BUT CHAOS.

Reporter: THE CHAOS

STARTED EARLY IN HIS LIFE.

AFTER HIS FATHER LEFT, TRACY

WATCHED HELPLESSLY AS HIS

MOTHER'S NUMEROUS DRUNKEN

BOYFRIENDS ABUSED HER.

AND THEN SHE MARRIED ONE OF

THEM, AND LEFT HIS SON WITH

A NEIGHBOR.

I KEPT ASKING THE LADY,

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY MOM?

SHE SAID HE IS NOT COMING

BACK FOR YOU, AND SHE

STARTED BEATING ME UP.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

HIS FATHER TOOK HIM, BUT HE

WAS ALSO ABUSIVE, AND TRACY

FELT EVEN MORE ALONE.

AT THIS POINT, I SHUT

DOWN.

I DIDN'T WANT TO TALK TO

ANYBODY.

I FELT NOBODY LOVED ME.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

TRACY MOVED OUT AND REUNITED

WITH HIS MOTHER, BUT THINGS

WERE ABOUT TO GET WORSE.

MY MOTHER STARTED GOING

OUT WITH THIS BIKER GUY.

HE INTRODUCED ME TO METH,

AND ALL OF HIS BIKER

FRIENDS.

IN THAT GROUP OF PEOPLE, THE

MORE DRUGS AND ALCOHOL YOU

DID, THE COOLER YOU WERE.

Reporter: AT 17 HE

LANDED IN JUVENILE HALL FOR

BREAKING AND ENTERING.

HE COULD HAVE BEEN RELEASED

INTO HIS MOTHER'S CUSTODY.

SHE SAID, NO, I CAN'T

TAKE YOU, AND SHE TURNED

AROUND AND WALKED OUT.

I WAS IN SUCH IN A RAGE.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE SHE LEFT

ME AGAIN.

AND NOW I WAS IN JUVENILE

HALL UNTIL I WAS 18 YEARS

OLD BECAUSE I HAD NO ONE TO

BE RELEASED TO, I HAD NO

PARENTS.

I WANTED TO DESTROY

EVERYBODY.

Reporter: AFTER HIS

RELEASE, TRACY BECAME

ADDICTED TO CRYSTAL METH.

THEN WITH A TWISTED SENSE OF

JUSTICE, HE STARTED ROBBING

DRUG DEALERS.

I WOULD SEE THESE DRUG

ADDICTS JUST ABUSIVE TO

THEIR KIDS AND WOMEN.

AND IN MY SICK MIND -- HERE

I AM DOING MORE DRUGS THAN

MOST PEOPLE, AND IN MY SICK

MIND, I THOUGHT THIS WILL BE

THE WAY TO GIVE BACK TO THE

SITUATION, AND AT THE SAME

TIME I GET MY DRUGS.

WHO IS GOING TO TELL ON ME.

AND I'VE HAD PEOPLE TELL ME,

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

AND I TELL THEM I'M GOD,

THAT'S WHO I AM.

Reporter: HE HAD

NUMEROUS RUN-INS WITH THE

LAW FOR DRUG DEALER AND

BATTERY.

AT ONE POINT HE EVEN JOINED

A WHITE SUPREMACIST GROUP.

I HATED EVERYBODY.

I TOOK IT OUT ON BLACKS,

JEWS.

I WANTED TO BE MEAN.

BEING INTO THIS GROUP OF

PEOPLE, I KNEW THEY ALWAYS

HAD MY BACK.

Reporter: AT HOME,

PARANOIA KEPT HIM ON EDGE.

HE SEPARATED HIMSELF FROM

HIS FRIENDS AND STAYED

HIGH.

THERE CAME A POINT WHERE

I DID DRUGS SO MUCH, I WAS

INJECTING UP TO AN OUNCE OF

METH A DAY.

I FELT LIKE I COULDN'T SLEEP

OR TURN MY BACK ON ANYBODY.

I COULDN'T TRUST ANYBODY.

THE COPS HATED ME, THE

ROBBERS HATED ME, EVERYBODY

HATED ME.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

TRACY BARRICADED HIMSELF

INSIDE A HOUSE.

WHEN THE POLICE FINALLY

CAUGHT UP WITH HIM, THEY

DIDN'T BOTHER KNOCKING.

5:30 IN THE MORNING,

BOOM, AN ARMORED CAR CAME

THROUGH MY GATE, LOOKING FOR

A METH LAB AND A CHOP SHOP.

Reporter: AT 31 YEARS

OLD, TRACY FACED UP TO 100

YEARS FOR DRUG CHARGES AND

BREAKING PAROLE.

AND HE FELT HE NEVER TRULY

HAD A CHANCE TO LIVE.

I SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING I

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS, AND

NOW I'M GOING TO DO THE REST

OF MY LIFE IN PRISON AND I

NEVER FOUND WHAT I WAS

LOOKING FOR.

Reporter: ONE DAY A

FELLOW INMATE INVITED HIM TO

A CHAPEL SERVICE.

TRACY SAW IT AS JUST A

CHANCE TO GET OUT OF HIS

CELL, SO HE ACCEPTED IT.

I NEVER NEW CHRISTIANS.

I HAD NEVER TOUCHED A BIBLE

IN MY LIFE.

HE STARTED READING OUT OF

THE BIBLE, AND I THOUGHT,

WHAT IS THAT?

I WANT TO HEAR MORE OF

THIS.

Reporter: TRACY SAYS

THE PREACHER'S WORDS STIRRED

SOMETHING IN HIS HEART.

I COULD HEAR THE LORD

SAYING, UNTIL YOU

ACKNOWLEDGE ME AS YOUR LORD

AND SAVIOR, NOTHING WILL

WORK IN YOUR LIFE.

HE LED ME TO GIVE MY LIFE TO

JESUS.

SO I GAVE MY LIFE TO THE

LORD.

AT THAT POINT, I WAS JUST

CRYING EVERY DAY BECAUSE

JUST ALL OF THIS STUFF CAME

BACK AT ME, ALL OF THIS

STUFF I DID IN MY LIFE WAS

JUST COMING AT ME.

I FELT SO SORRY.

I FELT SO BAD FOR THIS STUFF

I HAD DONE.

AND HE WOULD TELL ME, THE

LORD FORGIVES YOU.

Reporter: TRACY SAYS IN

CHRIST, HE FOUND ANOTHER WAY

TO LIVE.

I REALIZED THE WHOLE TIME

I WASN'T FIGHTING AGAINST

PEOPLE OR ANYBODY, I WAS

BLOCKING GOD FROM COMING

INTO MY LIFE.

Reporter: AND THEN CAME

AN UNBELIEVABLE TURN OF

EVENTS.

EVIDENCE AGAINST TRACY WAS

PROVEN TO BE FALSE.

AFTER SERVING ONLY TWO

YEARS, TRACY WAS A FREE

MAN.

THAT WAS NOTHING THAT I

DID.

IT WAS WHAT GOD DID.

I ENDED UP GOING DIRECTLY

FROM PRISON TO TEEN

CHALLENGE.

Reporter: TRACY IS

STILL DRUG-FREE AND GOES

BACK TO PRISON TO TELL

INMATES ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

I'VE BEEN APPROVED TO GO

BACK INTO THE SAME JAIL I

GOT SAVED IN AND PREACH TO

THESE GUYS.

I WANT TO GRAB THESE GUYS

AND SHAKE THEM AND GO, GUYS,

GOD IS REAL.

Reporter: TODAY TRACY

IS MARRIED TO DEBRA.

TOGETHER THEY FOUND PEACE

AND ACCEPTANCE THROUGH A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

I AM SO IN AWE OF THE

LORD FROM WHAT HE HAS DONE

IN MY LIFE.

THE BIBLE SAYS GOD WILL

SEPARATE YOUR SINS, AS FAR

AS THE EAST IS FROM THE

WEST, AND THAT IS ABSOLUTELY

TRUE, WHAT HE HAS DONE IN MY

LIFE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, IT IS A

REAL SIMPLE STORY.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD TOOK

ON FLESH, BECAME A MAN,

LIVED AMONG US, LIVED A

PERFECT LIFE, AND THEN HE

OFFERED HIMSELF TO DIE AS A

SACRIFICE.

FOR THE SINS THAT YOU AND I

HAVE COMMITTED.

SO THAT WE COULD SPEND

ETERNITY FORGIVEN, IN THE

PRESENCE OF GOD.

IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE.

GOD TOOK ON HIMSELF OUR SIN

AND THEN PAID THE PRICE FOR

OUR SIN SO THAT WE DON'T

HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE.

AND AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM,

THE BIBLE SAYS, HE GAVE THE

POWER TO BECOME THE SONS OF

GOD, EVEN TO THEM WHO

BELIEVE ON HIS NAME.

ISN'T THAT SIMPLE?

YOU DON'T NEED A THEOLOGICAL

DEGREE TO UNDERSTAND THAT.

THAT'S SIMPLE, SIMPLE,

SIMPLE.

WHEREVER YOU ARE RIGHT NOW,

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE SOME

TATTOOED-COVERED MONSTER.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE

LANGUISHING IN A PRISON

CELL.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE

SOMEBODY WHO HAS BEEN ABUSED

BY A PARENT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BE

SOMEBODY WHO SAYS, I WANT TO

KNOW GOD.

I WANT TO HAVE PEACE WITH

GOD.

IF YOU DO, HE WILL HEAR AND

ANSWER.

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN A

PRAYER.

AND IF YOU'LL PRAY WITH ME

RIGHT NOW, WHEREVER YOU ARE,

THE GOD OF HEAVEN WILL

LISTEN, AND HE WILL ENTER

INTO YOUR HEART AND SAVE YOU

FOREVER.

DO YOU WANT TO DO THAT?

JUST BOW YOUR HEAD RIGHT

NOW.

DON'T GO ANYWHERE.

RIGHT THIS MINUTE BOW YOUR

HEAD AND PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME.

JESUS, I'M A SINNER, LORD.

I ADVANTAGE LIVE HAVEN'T

LIVED FOR YOU.

AND MY LIFE IS GOING THE

WRONG WAY.

BUT I KNOW NOW THAT YOU DIED

FOR MY SIN.

AND YOU ROSE FROM THE DEAD

THAT I MIGHT HAVE ETERNAL

LIFE.

SO RIGHT NOW, JESUS, I TURN

AWAY FROM THE SIN AND THE

SELSELFISHNESS THAT HAS

CHARACTERIZED MY LIFE, AND I

GIVE MYSELF TO YOU.

AND I SAY, LORD, NOW, COME

INTO MY HEART.

LIVE IN ME, AND FROM THIS

MOMENT ON I WILL LIVE FOR

YOU AND I WILL SERVE YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD, FOR HEARING

MY PRAYER AND COMING INTO MY

HEART.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO OFFER YOU A LITTLE

BOOKLET.

I WANT YOU TO CALL IN AND

TELL US WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

THE NUMBER IS THERE ON YOUR

SCREEN.

IT'S RIGHT THERE FOR YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE, TAKEN FROM

JEREMIAH, THE PROPHET.
