COLLEGE, WHERE YOU'LL BE

GETTING MORE THAN AN

EDUCATION.

STUDENT LOAN DEBT IS

GREATER THAN CREDIT CARD

DEBT.

Wendy: AND WHY?

THE SYSTEM IS

UNBELIEVABLY CORRUPT.

STUDENTS DON'T GET THAT

ANYMORE.

PLUS, FROM "WHEN THE GAME

STANDS TALL."

THAT'S NOT WHO WE ARE.

WE NEED TO FIND OUR WAY

AGAIN.

Wendy: SCOTT ROSS SITS

DOWN WITH ACTOR JIM CAVIEZEL.

IT IS OUR FAITH.

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS.

TODAY PRINCESS MAGGIE WILL

BE HERE, THE FAMOUS IRISH

WATER SPANIEL.

AND, TALKING ABOUT WATER AND

ICE CUBES, YOU HAD IT DONE.

Wendy: GORDON AND I

TOOK THE CHALLENGE WITH THE

ICE BUCKET.

Pat: OH, MY GOODNESS.

AND WE'VE GOT THE WORKOUT

REGIMEN FOR MOUNT

KILIMANJARO.

Wendy: IT IS GOING TO

BE A FUN FRIDAY.

Pat: FOLKS, IT IS A

MEDICAL MIRACLE.

THE MISSIONARY WHO HAS

CONTRACTED THE EBOLA VIRUS

HAS BEATEN THE ODDS.

KENT BRANTLY GOT A CLEAN

BILL OF HEALTH AND WALKED

OUT OF THE HOSPITAL.

Wendy: BUT EBOLA IS

STILL A MURDEROUS PLAGUE IN

AFRICA, AND "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS SENDING VITAL

EQUIPMENT TO STOP THE

GROWING DEATH SPIRAL.

CAITLIN BURKE BRINGS US THE

STORY.

Reporter: AFTER NEARLY

THREE WEEKS OF INTENSE

TREATMENT, TESTING, AND

ISOLATION, NANCY WRITEBOL

AND DR. KENT BRANTLY ARE

BACK HOME WITH THEIR

FAMILIES.

I'M THRILLED TO BE ALIVE,

TO BE WELL, AND TO BE

REUNITED WITH MY FAMILY.

Reporter: THE WRITEBOL

FAMILY REQUESTS PRIVACY, BUT

MADE THE FOLLOWING

STATEMENT: "DURING THE

COURSE OF HER FIGHT, NANCY

RECALLED THE DARK HOURS OF

FEAR AND LONELINESS, BUT

ALSO THE SENSE OF A DEEP,

ABIDING PEACE, AND PRESENCE

OF GOD, GIVING HERp

COMFORT."

BOTH WRITEBOL AND

DR. BRANTLY SAY THEY'RE

THANKFUL FOR ALL OF THE

PRAYERS ON THEIR BEHALF.

I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH

FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND YOUR

SUPPORT.

BUT WHAT I CAN TELL YOU IS

THAT I SERVE A FAITHFUL GOD

WHO ANSWERS PRAYERS.

Reporter: DOCTORS SAY

AFTER THREE WEEKS, EBOLA

PATIENTS WHO BEAT THE

DISEASE CAN'T SPREAD THE

VIRUS.

THAT'S BECAUSE IT IS NO

LONGER IN THEIR BLOOD OR

SALIVA.

THE MEDICAL STAFF AT

EMORY IS CONFIDENT THAT THE

DISCHARGE FROM THE HOSPITAL

OF BOTH OF THESE PATIENTS

POSSESS NO PUBLIC HEALTH

THREAT.

Reporter: EXPERTS SAY

BOTH PATIENTS STILL HAVE

SOME HEALING AHEAD, AS IT IS

COMMON FOR FATIGUE AND ACHES

AND PAINS TO LINGER.

WRITEBOL AND DR. BRANTLY

WERE WORKLY IN THE EBOLA

WARD OF THIS FIELD HOSPITAL

IN LIBERIA WHEN THEY GOT

SICK.

AND WHILE THEIR TREATMENT

WAS A SUCCESS, THE OUTBREAK

IN WEST AFRICA IS FAR FROM

CONTAINED.

ACCORDING TO THE WORLD

HEALTH ORGANIZATION, THE

DEATH TOLL IS NOW AT MORE

THAN 1300 PEOPLE.

LOCAL GOVERNMENTS HAVE PUT

IN PLACE A NO-TOUCHING RULE

AND ARE GOING TO GREAT

LENGTHS TO E ENCOURAGE THE

PUBLIC TO WASH THEIR HANDS

WITH CHLORINATED WATER.

DON'T HUG YOUR WIFE,

DON'T HOLD HANDS WITH YOUR

FRIEND.

AND DON'T SHAKE HANDS.

Reporter: BUT MANY OF

THE AREAS HIT THE HARDEST BY

EBOLA HAVE RUN OUT OF

CHLORINE.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS ON

THE SCENE AND HEARD OF THIS

NEED.

I MET WITH THE MINISTER

OF LIBERIA AND ASKED WHAT

HIS PRIMARY NEEDS WERE?

AND HE SAID HIS NUMBER ONE

NEED RIGHT NOW IS BODY BAGS,

WHICH IS AN EYE-OPENING

NEED, OF COURSE.

AND HIS NUMBER TWO NEED WAS

CHLORINE.

Reporter: O.B. IS

SENDING FIVE CHLORINE UNITS

FROM ITS CHESAPEAKE,

VIRGINIA, WAREHOUSE.

THEY'LL BE ABLE TO PRODUCE A

TOTAL OF 550 GALLONS OF

CHLORINE A DAY.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ALSO WORKING WITH A LOCAL

HOSPITAL, SENDING MEDICAL

SUPPLIES AND OTHER

EQUIPMENT.

AND WORKING WITH LOCAL

CHURCHES, TO EDUCATE THE

PUBLIC ABOUT THE DISEASE.

ALL IMPORTANT STEPS TOWARDS

REDUCING THE THREAT OF

SPREADING EBOLA.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I'M THRILLED WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING."

I GOT A WORD FROM BILL

HORAN, AND THEY DEVELOPED

THAT DOWN IN HAITI, AND THEY

NOW HAVE MACHINES THAT

CREATE CHLORINE.

AND THE CHLORINE IS WHAT IS

NEEDED TO KILL THAT EBOLA

VIRUS..

SO THEY CAN WASH THEIR HANDS

AND DISINFECT WITH CHLORINE,

AND IT KILLS THE EBOLA

VIRUS.

THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE ASKING.

IT IS A SOMBER WARNING THEY

WANT, QUOTE,"BODY BAGS AND

CHLORINE."

WE DIDN'T DO THE BODY BAGS,

BUT WE CERTAINLY DID THE

CHLORINE.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP, THERE

IS THE TELEPHONE NUMBER.

"OPERATION BLESSING," CBN

CENTER, VIRGINIA BEACH,

VIRGINIA.

THIS IS AN EMERGENCY.

IT IS A DREAD DISEASE.

AND I'M JUST DELIGHTED THERE

IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO

HELP CURB THE SPREAD OF THAT

DISEASE.

AND YOU CAN DO SOMETHING

ABOUT IT.

SO IT'S IMPORTANT, AND WE

CAN CREATE THE CHLORINE.

WE HAVE MACHINES.

AND, AGAIN, THAT NUMBER IS

GOING -- IT WILL BE

550 GALLONS OF CHLORINE A

DAY, WHICH WILL MAKE A MAJOR

IMPACT IN THE HEALTH

SITUATION IN LIBERIA.

TIM INHOFF IS A GOOD FRIEND

OF MINE.

HE IS A GOOD GUY.

HE IS FROM TULSA, OKLAHOMA.

HE IS A CHRISTIAN, AND HE IS

WARNING THAT ISIS TERRORISTS

ARE PLANNING TO BLOW UP A

CITY RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA.

JON JES JES HAS THAJOHN

JESSUP HAS THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

OKLAHOMA SENATOR, JIM INHOFF

CALLED ISIS CRAZY.

AND HE TOLD THE OKLAHOMA

CITY LOCAL FOX AFFILIATE

THAT MEMBERS OF ISIS ARE

RAPIDLY DEVELOPING A METHOD

OF BLOWING UP A MAJOR U.S.

CITY, AND PEOPLE JUST CAN'T

BELIEVE THAT IS HAPPENING.

HE ALSO SAID WE'RE IN THE

MOST DANGEROUS POSITION

WE'VE EVER BEEN IN AS A

NATION.

TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY IS

ALSO WARNING THAT TERRORISTS

CAN COME IN THROUGH THE U.S.

THROUGH THE UNSECURED

SOUTHERN BORDER.

THERE IS, I THINK, GREAT

CONCERN THAT THE BORDER

BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES

AND MEXICO IS UNSECURE, AND

WE DON'T KNOW WHO IS USING

THAT.

WHAT I WILL SHARE WITH YOU

THAT WE'VE SEEN, HISTORIC

HIGH LEVELS OF INDIVIDUALS

FROM COUNTRIES WITH

TERRORIST TIES OVER THE

COURSE OF THE LAST MONTH.

INDIVIDUALS FROM ISIS OR

OTHER TERRORIST STATES COULD

BE -- AND I THINK THERE IS A

VERY REAL POSSIBLE THAT THEY

MAY HAVE ALREADY USED THAT.

John: PERRY AND SEVERAL

OTHERS SAY THE U.S. NEEDS TO

BE PREPARED FOR A POSSIBLE

TERRORIST ATTACK.

THE WORLD'S POPULATION IS

RAPIDLY GETTING OLDER, AND

MOODY'S SERVICE REPORTS THAT

WILL MEAN SLOWER ECONOMIC

GROWTH FOR THE GLOBAL

ECONOMY IN THE YEARS AHEAD

AS MORE AND MORE PEOPLE

RETIRE, AND FEWER WERE BE

KEEPING THE ECONOMY GOING.

AN INCREASING NUMBER OF

COUNTRIES, INCLUDING FRANCE,

CHINA, GERMANY AND JAPAN

HAVE OR WILL HAVE

POPULATIONS WITH AT LEAST

20% 65 OR OLDER.

PAT?

Pat: I'VE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT THIS POPULATION

PROBLEM FOR SOME TIME.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

THE PERCENTAGE THE WORLD'S

POPULATION THAT LIVE IN

EUROPE HAS SHRUNK

DRAMATICALLY.

WHY?

BECAUSE OF BIRTH CONTROL.

THEY JUST DON'T WANT TO HAVE

BABIES.

IT IS INCONVENIENT.

THEY HAVE BEEN FED A BILL OF

GOODS THAT HAVING A CHILD IS

INCONVENIENT AND EXPENSIVE.

WELL, THAT'S THE PRICE OF

THE LIFESTYLE CHOICES THAT

ARE BEING MADE.

IN JAPAN, IT IS THE SAME

THING.

THEY REDUCED THE NUMBER OF

FAMILIES.

NOW, IN CHINA, THEY'VE HAD A

ONE-CHILD POLICY THAT IS

GOING TO COME BACK TO BITE

THEM VERY QUICKLY.

THE REST OF THE WORLD IS

EXPERIENCING THE SAME

THING.

THE PERCENTAGE OF ELDERLY

ARE GROWING EXPEDENTIALLY,

AND THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE

ENOUGH WORKFORCE,

WORKING-AGED PEOPLE, TO TAKE

CARE OF THE ELDERLY.

THERE IS GOING TO BE A

DEMOGRAPHIC CRISIS THAT IS

COMING UPON US IN JUST A FEW

YEARS.

IT IS INTERESTING THAT

MOODY'S IS POINTING THAT OUT

TO US.

THE ANSWER IS: HAVE BABIES.

JOHN?

John: PAT, NBA FANS CAN

EASILY FOLLOW THEIR FAVORITE

PLAYERS AND TEAMS DURING THE

BASKETBALL SEASON, BUT WHAT

HAPPENS DURING THE OFF

SEASON?

ANGELA GETS THE IMPACT STORY

OF WHAT SOME PRO BALLPLAYERS

DID OFF THE COURT THIS

SUMMER FOR CHRIST.

Reporter: EACH YEAR THE

HAWAIIAN ISLANDS ATTRACT

PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

THIS SUMMER IT IS NOT JUST

THE BEACHES DURING CROWDS.

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES FROM

THE NBA ARE TEAMING UP IN

MAUI, PROVIDING A SUMMER

BASKETBALL CAMP, CALLED

BASKETBALL MAU RE MAUI, AND

THEY'RE USING BASKETBALL TO

TEACH THE KIDS.

HAVING THE PRO ATHLETES

HERE TO PROVIDE, OBVIOUSLY,

THE EXCITEMENT, NUMBER ONE,

BUT WHEN YOU REALLY GET TO

KNOW THEM, AND THE KIDS CAN

FEEL LIA THEIR HEART, AND

THE REASON THEY COME HERE IS

BECAUSE THEY LOVE GOD AND

THEY WANT TO USE THEIR GIFT,

WHICH IS BASKETBALL, TO

ADVANCE THE KINGDOM OF GOD,

IT IS AMAZING WHAT HAPPENS.

Reporter: THE CAMP IS

SPONSORED BY AT NBA GIFTS,

INCLUDING THE APPAREL AND

THE MOVIE.

ACTIVE FAITH EXPLODED

OVERNIGHT WHEN NBA STAR

JEREMY LYNNE WAS

PHOTOGRAPHED WEARING THE

WRISTBAND READING "IN JESUS'

NAME I PLAY."

THE SPORTS FANS TOOK OFF.

IT EVENTUALLY SPLASHED THE

BRAND ACROSS TAIWAN'S NEWS

NETWORK.

I THANK MY LORD, JESUS

CHRIST.

I WANTED TO CREATE

SOMETHING THAT WAS GOING TO

BE SOME SIMILAR QUALITY BUT

SOMETHING THAT WOULD CARRY A

CHRISTIAN MESSAGE.

Reporter: ANOTHER

CONNECTION, A MINISTRY FILM

CALLED "MID RANGE," ABOUT A

COLLEGE PLAYER WHO WANTS TO

PLAY PRO-BASKETBALL.

A GROUP OF FORMER AND

CURRENT PLAYERS ARE FEATURED

IN THE FILM.

NOW THEY'RE TRAVELLING

AROUND THE COUNTRY,

PREVIEWING IT DURING

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS.

AND IT ALLOWS THE ATHLETES A

CHANCE TO SHARE THEIR

TESTIMONY, AND THE

TEMPTATIONS THAT COME WITH

BEING A PROFESSIONAL

ATHLETE.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE A

PROFESSIONAL BASKETBALL

PLAYER, IT IS HARD TO BE A

CHRISTIAN PROFESSIONAL

BASKETBALL PLAYER.

SO THE BATTLES THAT YOU'RE

FACING ARE ON STEROIDS.

EVERYTHING IS JUST

COMPOUNDED, PUSHED HIGHER.

Reporter: THE WEEK

WRAPPED UP WITH A CELEBRITY

BASKETBALL GAME, WHERE

PLAYERS GAVE ME A FEW

POINTERS ON THE COURT.

AND WITH THE SUCCESS OF

BASKETBALL MA MAUI, THEY'RE

SHOOTING FOR AN EVEN BIGGER

TURNOUT NEXT YEAR.

CBN NEWS, MAUI.

John: AND ANGELA

BROUGHT BACK FOUR PRIZES YOU

COULD WIN.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS ANSWER

SOME BASKETBALL TRIVIA

QUESTIONS.

YOU FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THAT

ON OUR CBN Facebook PAGE

AND ON TWITTER,@CBN NEWS.

YOU PROBABLY HAVE HEARD

ABOUT THE ICE BUCKET

CHALLENGE.

IT STARTED TO RAISE

AWARENESS FOR A.L.S., BY

DONATING OR DUMPING A BUCKET

OF ICE WATER ON YOUR HEAD.

GORDON ROBERTSON AND CBN

NEWS TOOK PART.

YOU GUYS READY?

THREE, TWO, ONE.

[SCREAMING]

READY?

YEAH!

LET'S DO THIS.

ONE, TWO, THREE.

[SCREAMING]

John: THOSE WHO TOOK

PART IN THE CHALLENGE, IN

BOTH CBN NEWS AND REGENT

UNIVERSITY, ARE GIVING TO

A.L.S. CHARITIES THAT DO NOT

USE EMBRYONIC RESEARCH.

YOU CAN GO cbnnews.com AND

SEARCH FOR EMBRYONIC STEM

CELL RESEARCH.

WENDY, I SAW YOU OUT THERE

GETTING DRENCHED.

HOW WAS IT?

Wendy: JOHN, YOU SHOULD

HAVE BEEN THERE.

IT WAS ABOUT 90° IN VIRGINIA

BEACH AND HUMID, SO IT

WASN'T A BIG SACRIFICE.

BUT JUST TO SEE GORDON DO

IT.

ITHERE IS SOMETHING

HILARIOUS --

Pat: THE DEAN OF THE

LAW SCHOOL DID IT.

Wendy: I KNOW YOU WOULD

HAVE DONE IT IF YOU KNEW WE

WERE DOING IT.

Pat: I KNEW, AND I

DIDN'T.

I ENTHUSIASTICALLY SAID, GO

GET 'EM.

Wendy: FROM CORRUPT

TEACHERS TO COURSES ON

SALAD, COLLEGE HAS CERTAINLY

CHANGED OVER THE LAST FEW

YEARS, AND NOT IN A GOOD

WAY.

57% OF PERSPECTIVE

STUDENTS THINK THAT COLLEGE

DOES NOT DELIVER A VALUE

WORTH THE COST.

75% OF THE SAME SURVEY SAY

COLLEGE IS SIMPLY

UNAFFORDABLE TODAY.

Wendy: HEAR HOW TO GET

MORE BANG FOR YOUR BOOK, AND

PRINCESS MAGGIE IS ON THE

WAY.

SO STAY TUNED.

Pat: WELL, IT'S FRIDAY,

AND BROUGHT BACK BY POPULAR

DEMAND IS AN IRISH WATER

SPANIEL, WHO IS PRINCESS

MAGGIE, AND YOU'RE SO GOOD.

DO YOU WANT SOMETHING.

CAN YOU SPEAK FOR ME.

SPEAK?

SPEAK?

NO.

OKAY, THERE YOU GO.

IS THAT GOOD?

Wendy: HER FUR IS SO

SOFT.

Pat: SHAKE HANDS.

SIT UP -- I DIDN'T SAY ROLL

OVER.

Wendy: SHE WANTS THAT

TREAT.

Pat: HERE, SHAKE

HANDS.

YOU GOING TO ROLL OVER?

ALL RIGHT, ROLL OVER.

HERE.

GOOD GIRL.

YOU'RE A SWEETIE.

HERE, YOU WANT TO JUMP OVER

HERE?

ALL RIGHT, SIT -- NO, SIT

UP.

SIT.

COME HERE.

SIT.

NO!

Wendy: SORRY.

Pat: SHE LOVES THOSE

TREATS.

Wendy: I KNOW.

Pat: SHE IS AN IRISH

WATER HOUND.

HIGHER EDUCATION IS BECOMING

SO COSTLY, IT IS PUTTING SO

MANY AMERICANS INTO DEBT FOR

DECADES.

AND TOO OFTEN THE DEGREES

DON'T HAVE ANY VALUE.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

THERE ARE STILL WAYS TO GET

A GREAT EDUCATION WITHOUT

THE KILLER COSTS.

HERE HE IS.

Reporter: FOR THE FIRST

TIME, DEBT FROM ATTENDING

COLLEGE OUTWAYS CREDIT CARD

DEBT.

STUDENTS HAVE WRACKED UP A

TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

HISTORY, STUDENT LOAN DEBT

IS GREATER THAN CREDIT CARD

DEBT.

THE AVERAGE STUDENT

GRADUATES WITH $26,200 IN

STUDENT DEBT.

IF THEY GET MARRIED TO

ANOTHER AVERAGE STUDENT,

THEY OWE $53,000 STARTING

OFF.

Reporter: AND THESE

STUDENTS QUESTION THE VALUE

OF TODAY'S DEGREES.

57% OF STUDENTS THINK

COLLEGE DOES NOT DELIVER A

VALUE WORTH THE COST.

75% OF THE SAME SURVEY SAYS

COLLEGE IS SIMPLY

UNAFFORDABLE TODAY.

THIS MAN BELIEVES THAT

MANY PROFESSORS ARE MORE

INTERESTED IN WRITING BOOKS

THAN TEACHING.

WHILE GRADUATE STUDENTS

FROM THAILAND WHO ARE LIVING

ON RAMAN NOODLES WHO TEACH

THE ACTUALLY STUDENTS -- THE

SYSTEM IS UNBELIEVABLY

CORRUPT AND LUDICROUSLY

EXPENSIVE.

Reporter: AND STUDENTS

NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO

GET A GOOD EDUCATION WITHOUT

PLUNGING INTO DEBT.

SUGGESTIONS INCLUDE, STAYING

IN YOUR OWN STATE, WHICH CAN

OFTEN KEEP TUITION BELOW

$10,000 A YEAR.

YOU HAVE BEEN PAYING

PROPERTY TAXES, OR YOUR

PARENTS HAVE, ALL YOUR LIFE

SO YOU CAN STAY IN THE

STATE'S COLLEGES.

Reporter: IT CREDITS

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND

FOR GOOD RESEARCH, MUSIC AND

ARTS, BUT GIVES BAD MARKS

FOR LACK OF A GOOD

EDUCATION.

YOU CAN GET CLASSES LIKE,

HOW SAFE IS YOUR SALAD.

THEY PRAISE GEORGIA'S

UNIVERSITY BECAUSE OF ITS

TOP-NOTCH COLLEGE.

ON THE OTHER HAND, G.M. USE

OF ADVISING THE STUDENTS IS

LABELLED ANEMIC.

BUT DO YOU NEED TO GO TENS

OF THOUSANDS IN DEBT TO

ATTEND A BIG-NAME

UNIVERSITY?

A NEARBY COMMUNITY COLLEGE

CAN TEACH YOU GREAT SKILLS

WITHOUT THE GREAT DEBT.

IF YOU'RE SMART AND YOU

WORK CAMPUS JOBS AND YOU

WORK ON SUMMERS, YOU MIGHT

GRADUATE DEBT-FREE,.

Reporter: BUT IF YOU'RE

SET ON A FOUR-YEAR

UNIVERSITY, DO YOUR

RESEARCH.

COLLEGES LIKE REGENT

UNIVERSITY OFFER LOTS OF

ONLINE CLASSES, KEEPING YOUR

COSTS DOWN.

THERE IS BAPTIST BAYLOR --

THEY HAVE TRIED TO MAKE

IT THE PROTESTANT NOTREDAM,

AND IT HAS IMPROVED ITS

ACADEMIC.

Reporter: COLLEGE OF

THE OZARK CHANGES FREE

TUSION BY PUTTING KIDS TO

WORK.

EVERYBODY GOES THERE

FREE, BUT THEY WORK.

Reporter: AND THEY HAVE

A SMALL VIRGINIA COLLEGE

THAT EMBRACES CHRISTIANITY

AND EDUCATION.

IT IS SOUNDED BY AND FOR

HOME-SCHOOLERS, BUT IT

BRANCHES BEYOND THAT.

Reporter: SOME DEVELOP

DEEPLY INTO THE TRADITIONS

AND TEACHINGS OF WESTERN

CIVILIZATION, WHICH BOTH

EXPERTS PRAISE.

AND THEY WORRY ABOUT HOW FEW

COLLEGES EMBRACE THAT

PHILOSOPHY.

COLLEGE SHOULD BE WHERE

YOU GET TO LEARN ABOUT THE

GREAT THINKERS ON THE LEFT

AND THE THINKERS ON THE

LIFE.

STUDENTS DON'T GET THAT

ANYMORE.

Reporter: NO MATTER

WHERE YOU GO, THEY RECOMMEND

TO GET COURSES IN ANCIENT

GREEK, ROMAN LITERATURE, THE

BIBLE, U.S. HISTORY AND

POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY, AND

SHAKESPEARE.

THIS SHOULD MAKE YOU WHAT

BUSINESSES WANT MOST,

LITERATE, DEEP-THINKING

WORKERS.

THOSE ARE THE THINGS

EMPLOYERS SAY THAT ARE

MISSING, STUDENTS WHO CAN

WRITE A MEMO THAT IS NOT

ILLITERATE.

MY OWN NEPHEW BECAME AN

ELECTRICIAN, DID NOT GO TO

COLLEGE, AND HE EARNED MORE

MONEY AT AGE 25 THAN I LEARN

NOW WITH A Ph.D.

SKIP COLLEGE, READ THE GREAT

BOOKS ON YOUR OWN, AND TAKE

SOME ONLINE COURSES.

Reporter: GREAT

LEARNING IS OUT THERE, AND

IF YOU'RE CAREFUL, IT

DOESN'T HAVE TO PUT YOU IN

DEBT FOR DECADES.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

Pat: REGENT HAS EIGHT

PRESTIGIOUS ACCREDITATIONS,

AND IT HAS DOCTORAL DEGREES

IN EDUCATION, DOCTORAL

DEGREES IN COMMUNICATIONS.

AND J.D., THE LAW STUDENTS,

WERE SECOND IN THE WORLD

COMPETITION OF MOOT COURT,

BEATING OXFORD AND

CAMBRIDGE.

ONE YEAR THEY CAME IN AHEAD

OF YALE.

AND MOOT COURT BEAT HARVARD

AS THE TOP IN THE COUNTRY

FOR NEGOTIATION.

I'M WORKING RIGHT NOW FOR

REGENT TO SEE IF WE CAN'T

GET A FOUR-YEAR -- A

FOUR-YEAR DEGREE FOR

$10,000.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE WORKING

ON.

Wendy: THAT'S WHAT I

PAID WHEN I WENT TO A STATE

SCHOOL.

THAT'S A BARGAIN.

Pat: IT'S GOING TO BE

FABULOUS.

WE HAVEN'T GOT THERE YET, SO

DON'T CALL UP AND ENROLL.

BUT WE'RE DOING A LOT OF

STUFF ONLINE, TREMENDOUS

NUMBERS OF STUDENTS, AND

WE'VE GOT 6,000 STUDENTS

NOW.

IT IS GOING VERY QUICKLY TO

9,000.

Wendy: WOULD THAT BE A

SCHOLARSHIP, THE $10,000

DEGREE?

Pat: NO.

IT WILL BE THE COST OF A

FOUR-YEAR BACHELOR'S

DEGREE.

Wendy: BUT NOT YET.

Pat: IT IS ON THE WAY.

WE HAVE MANY, MANY MORE

COURSES, AND MORE ARE BEING

ADDED.

WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE ABOUT A

HUNDRED COURSES AVAILABLE AT

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

THERE IS AN ORGANIZATION,

THE COLLEGE TRUSTEES, AND

THIS IS THE ONLY SCHOOL IN

VIRGINIA, AS I UNDERSTAND,

THAT HAS A SPECIAL AWARD

BECAUSE REGENT TEACHES THE

CLIC CURRICULUM, AND IT HAS

THE TEACHING FOR THE CORE

AND GOES INTO SPECIALTIES ON

TOP OF THAT.

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED,

REGENTUNIVERSITY.EDU.

YOU CAN CALL, AND EVERY

EIGHT WEEKS THERE IS A NEW

SECTION STARTING.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR A

WHOLE SEMESTER.

EIGHT WEEKS.

EIGHT WEEKS.

EIGHT WEEKS.

SO IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO

COME, SIGN UP.

WE'RE WORKING ON THAT

$10,000, FOUR-YEAR PROGRAM.

IT WILL BE A GAME-CHANGER

FOR EVERYBODY, AND MAKE IT

SO EASY.

SO NOT ONLY DO WE TRAIN

DOGS, WE ALSO TRAIN

STUDENTS.

[LAUGHTER]

Wendy: RIGHT, TO BE

GREAT LEADERS.

Pat: WE'VE GOT ABOUT

150 STUDENTS FROM OVERSEAS.

WE HAVE 23% OF THE STUDENT

BODY IS AFRICAN-AMERICAN, 8%

IS HISPANIC.

Wendy: WHEN YOU TAKE A

WALK ON THE CAMPUS, IT IS

VERY INTERNATIONAL.

RIGHT HERE IN VIRGINIA

BEACH.

Pat: IT REALLY IS.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS AND

PEOPLE LOVE IT.

IN EIGHT WEEKS, YOU CAN SIGN

UP OR REGISTER AND START AND

COME IN EIGHT WEEKS.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY

WONDERFUL COURSES.

YOU CAN STUDY AT HOME.

Wendy: YOU'RE MAKING ME

ALMOST WANT TO GO BACK TO

SCHOOL.

Pat: I'D LOVE TO HAVE

YOU AS A STUDENT.

Wendy: THAT THOUGHT IS

GONE.

Pat: IF YOU DON'T LIKE

THAT, I CAN TEACH YOU HOW TO

TRAIN DOGS AND HORSES.

Wendy: YOU'RE SUCH A

RENAISSANCE MAN.

Pat: ALL RIGHT, GO FOR

IT.

Wendy: UP NEXT, THE

ACTOR WHO GAINED FAME

PLAYING JESUS COACHES HIGH

SCHOOL FOOTBALL.

WE'RE NOT ASKING YOU TO

PLAY A PERFECT GAME.

WHAT WE'RE ASKING YOU IS TO

GIVE A PERFECT PLAY, FROM

SNAP TO WHISTLE, THAT YOU

CAN BE DEPENDED ON.

LOVE MEANS YOU CAN DEPEND ON

ME.

Wendy: ACTOR JIM

CAVIEZEL TELLS US ABOUT

"WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL,"

A NEW MOVIE, NEXT.

Wendy: JIM CAVIEZEL IS

NO STRANGER THAN LARGER THAN

LIFE ROLES, HE STARRED AS

BOBBY JONES, AND, OF COURSE,

PLAYED JESUS IN "PASSION OF

THE CHRIST."

AND HIS LATEST GIG IS BOBBY

LATISER.

WE CHATTED ABOUT FOOTBALL

AND FAITH.

Reporter: JIM CAF

VEAL'S VERSATILITY AS AN

ACTOR IS UNQUESTIONED.

HE HAS PLAYED A WIDE VARIETY

OF ROLES.

PERHAPS THE MOST FAMOUS,

JESUS CHRIST.

HIS LATEST MOVIE, "WHEN THE

GAME STANDS TALL" COMES OUT

TODAY.

IF YOU'RE THINKING THIS IS

JUST ANOTHER FOOTBALL MOVIE,

THINK AGAIN.

WE GOT LOST, CAUGHT UP IN

THE HYPE AND THE GLORY AND

THE RELENTLESS PRESSURE.

THAT'S NOT WHO WE ARE.

WE NEED TO STAND BACK UP AND

FIND OUR WAY AGAIN.

Reporter: THIS IS VERY

DIFFERENT.

YOU GO TO SEE A SPORTS MOVIE

AND IT IS ABOUT SPORTS.

BUT THIS IS BEYOND SPORT.

IT IS ABOUT STUFF THAT

WILL LAST FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE.

PEOPLE GET CAUGHT UP IN

THEIR HIGH SCHOOL YEARS AND

THE GLORY.

AND THESE BOYS AND TAKE THAT

AND GO WITH IT FOR THE REST

OF THEIR LIVES.

THEY WILL BECOME GREAT

FATHERS, HUSBANDS, LEADERS

IN THEIR COMMUNITIES.

GUYS WHO BECOME GREAT

MILITARY COMMANDERS, AND NFL

SPORTS STARS, WHATEVER, BUT

THEY HAVE A FOUNDATION HE

HELPS BUILD RIGHT HERE WITH

THEM, TO LET THEM KNOW

THEY'RE LOVED, THAT GOD

LOVES THEM.

Reporter: AND THAT'S

THE ESSENCE OF THIS THING,

IS, AGAIN, NOT JUST SPORT.

HE IS BUILDING CHARACTER

INTO THEM.

HE NEVER FOCUSED ON

WINNING.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A GUY

WHO WON 151 FOOTBALL GAMES

IN A ROW.

Reporter: NO ONE HAS

EVER DONE THAT.

IT IS THE LONGEST STREAK

IN THE HISTORY OF ALL

SPORT.

NOBODY HAS EVER DONE THAT.

THEY NEVER LOST A FOOTBALL

GAME FOR 12 YEARS.

HE DID IT WITHOUT EVER

FOCUSING ON WINNING.

HE SAID, IT IS NOT HOW HARD

YOU HIT SOMEONE.

IT IS HOW HARD YOU'RE GOING

TO GET HIT.

WHEN YOU GET YOUR BELL RUNG,

IF YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO GET

BACK UP AGAIN, THAT IS VERY

REMINISCENT OF OUR FAITH.

IF THEY PERSECUTE YOU, KNOW

THEY PERSECUTED ME FIRST.

Reporter: THERE IS A

SPIRITUAL DIMENSION HERE AS

WELL.

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE OTHER

GUY.

AND FROM THAT, THESE BOYS

ARE LEARNING

RESPONSIBILITY.

AND YOU SEE YOUNG MEN NOW,

BOYS, AND THEY ASSUME JUST

BECAUSE THEY'RE 30 THEY'RE

MEN.

40-YEAR-OLDS -- THERE ARE A

LOT OF 30 AND 40 AND 50 AND

60-YEAR-OLD GUYS, AND YOU'VE

MET THEM.

Reporter: AND WHAT DO

THEY HAVE IN COMMON?

LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY.

THEY DON'T WANT TO STEP UP.

IT IS NOT ABOUT THAT.

HE SAYS, WE'RE NOT ASKING

YOU TO PLAY A PERFECT GAME.

THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

WHAT WE'RE ASKING OF YOU,

AND WHAT YOU SHOULD BE

ASKING OF YOURSELVES, IS TO

GIVE A PERFECT EFFORT ON

EVERY PLAY FROM SNAP TO

WHISTLE, THAT YOU CAN BE

DEPENDED ON.

LOVE MEANS YOU CAN DEPEND ON

ME.

YOU KNOW, MY FATHER PLAYED

FOR UCLA --

Reporter: YOUR DAD?

YES.

AND HE WOULDN'T HAVE THAT

SAME THING.

AND COINCIDENTALLY ENOUGH,

HE ALSO HAS THE LONGEST

COLLEGE WINNING STREAK OF

ALL TIME, ABOUT 88

BASKETBALL GAMES IN A ROW.

AND HE NEVER FOCUSED ON

WINNING.

Reporter: YOU PLAYED

BASKETBALL, DIDN'T YOU?

YEAH, I DID.

Reporter: THE

PRINCIPLES THAT LATISEISER

ESPOUSES IN LIFE, WERE THOSE

THINGS YOU WERE AWARE OF

WHEN YOU WERE PLAYING?

VERY WELL AWARE.

THEY WERE MY FOUNDATION AS

TO WHY I EVEN MADE IT IN

HOLLYWOOD.

Reporter: WHAT IS THAT

TREG.

> TREG.

> THAT?

I HAD GREAT ROLE MODELS.

AND BAD ONES, TOO.

BOYS ARE LOOKING FOR

LEADERS.

THEY'RE LOOKING FOR

COURAGE.

BOYS FOLLOW COURAGE.

MEN FOLLOW COURAGE.

AND IT'S O OUT THERE, BUT

IT WILL TAKE A BIT OF A

SHIFT RIGHT NOW IN THE WORLD

BEFORE YOU START SEEING IS

SOME OF THEM STEP UP BECAUSE

IT IS NOT WORKING RIGHT

NOW.

Reporter: HOW DO APPLY

THAT TO YOUR CHOICE OF

SCRIPTS?

I LOOK FOR REDEEMABLE

STORIES.

THERE IS SOMETHING MOVING

ABOUT A CHARACTER WHO FINDS

HIMSELF IN A VERY NEGATIVE

SITUATION AND TRIES TO TURN

AND FIND THE POSITIVE.

OUR FINDING HIMSELF IN THE

DARKNESS BY THE CHOICES HE

MADE, AND SAYS I CAN'T DO

THIS ANYMORE.

THE CHARACTER I PLAY

WOULDN'T SAY HE IS IN THE

LIGHT YET, HE IS STILL

TRYING TO FIND HIS WAY, BUT

HOW MANY OF US ARE LOOKING

FOR IT?

GOD NEEDS PEOPLE TO BE

THOUGH BEACONS OF LIGHT.

Reporter: DO YOU RUN UP

AGAINST THAT IN THE

HOLLYWOOD WORLD, SHOW

BUSINESS AND ALL OF THAT,

WHERE YOU HAVE TO MAKE THESE

KINDS OF CHOICES THAT ARE

DIFFICULT?

HAVE YOU LOST PARTS AS A

RESULT OF THESE KINDS OF

CHOICES?

SURE.

BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE CHOICE

TO MAKE.

Reporter: WHICH IS?

WELL, THERE IS THE EASY

WAY, AND THEN THERE IS THE

HARD WAY.

AND FOR ME, THE EASY WAY FOR

ME IS THE ONE WHERE I FOLLOW

MY SAVIOR.

THE HARD ONE FOR ME IS THE

ONE THAT IS GOING TO TAKE ME

TO PERDITION.

I CAN'T LOVE MY LIFE SO

MUCH -- THINK ABOUT THIS --

THAT I WOULD NOT THROW

MYSELF IN THE WAY OF THE

ENEMY THAT IS GOING TO HURT

OR MAIM MY CHILDREN, MY OWN

THREE CHILDREN.

THAT I LOVE MY LIFE SO

MUCH --

Reporter: YOU WOULD LAY

DOWN YOUR LIFE FOR THEM?

YES, BUT I DON'T WANT TO

DIE, RIGHT?

I'M GOING TO SAVE MYSELF.

I WOULD RATHER BE DEAD.

I DON'T MIND DOING "THE

PASSION OF THE CHRIST."

AND WHEN MY TIME IS DONE,

THAT'S IT.

Reporter: YOU CAN BE

LIKED.

YOU CAN BE LIKED BY MANY,

OR YOU CAN LOVED BY ONE.

LOVE DOES NOT COME FROM

MAN.

IT COMES FROM GOD.

FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES

AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO

TRESPASS AGAINST US.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

WANT PEOPLE TO TAKE AWAY

FROM THE FILM?

IT IIT IS ABOUT COMMUNITY

AND RELATIONSHIP AND ALL OF

THAT.

SO WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE

TO TAKE AWAY.

SOMEBODY SAID IN THE

'80s, I'M NOT YOUR KIDS'

ROLE MODEL.

IT IS THE AN TI -- YOU CAN

SAY I'M COMING FROM THE

PERSPECTIVE OF A COACH AND A

FATHER.

I'M CONCERNED ABOUT MY

KIDS.

AND I WANT MY KIDS TO

UNDERSTAND THAT I LOVE

THEM.

THIS IS THE KIND OF MAN I

WOULD GET BEHIND AND PLAY

BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT I WANT

MY CHILDREN TO BE LIKE.

AND I WANT THEM TO GO INTO

LIFE NOT THINKING THAT IT IS

ABOUT THE MONEY OR ANY OF

THAT STUFF.

AND TO FORGET THE WORLD AND

FOLLOW GOD WITH ALL THEY'RE

HEARTS BECAUSE HE LOVES

THEM.

Wendy: JIM CAVIEZEL,

YOU CONTINUE TO BE AN

INSPIRATION ON THE BIG

SCREEN AND OFF.

Pat: HAVE YOU EVER

WATCHED "PERSON OF

INTEREST?"

HE PLAYS A STONE-COLD

KILLER.

HE KILLS PEOPLE WITH

RECKLESS ABANDON.

Wendy: HE HAS THAT GAME

FACE.

Pat: HE GOES THROUGH

THERE STOICLY.

AND HE COMES IN AMAZING

MOVES, AND THEN HE PULLS OUT

A GUN AND BLOWS AWAY A WHOLE

ROW FULL OF PEOPLE.

IT IS SOMETHING.

IT IS A GOOD SHOW.

HE IS TERRIFIC.

BUT YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE HE

IS ACTING.

Wendy: THAT'S WHY HE IS

SUCH A GREAT ACTOR, BECAUSE

IT DOESN'T LOOK HARD.

YOU CAN SEE MORE OF JIM ON

THE BIG SCREEN STARTING

TODAY, "WHEN THE GAME STAND

TALL," IS OPENING IN

THEATERS NATIONWIDE.

CAMILLA SAYS, "DOES A PERSON

HAVE TO FORGIVE OTHERS

BEFORE THEY ARE HEALED?"

GET READY TO "BRING IT ON"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700? CLUB."

HAMAS KILLED 18 SUSPECTED

ISRAEL INFORMERS TODAY AS

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING IMPOVERISHED

STUDENTS IN MEXICO TO LEARN

HOW TO READ.

EVERY DAY CHILDREN GATHER AT

A MOBILE LIBRARY.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

RENOVATED A SCHOOL BUS,

REPLACING THE SEATS WITH

TABLES, CHAIRS, AND TENTS,

AND FILLING IT WITH ALL

SORTS OF SCHOLARLY

MATERIALS.

THE BOOKS HELP TEACH

CHILDREN SPANISH, ENGLISH,

AND SOME VALUES.

SOME OF THE CHILDREN HAVE

SAID THEY DIDN'T KNOW

READING WAS SO MUCH FUN.

REMEMBER YOU CAN FIND OUT

MORE ABOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING" BY GOING TO ITS

WEBSITE AT OB.ORG.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: MOUNT KILIMANJARO,

IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING UT

OUT OF ERNEST HEMMINGWAY.

IT IS THE HIGHEST

FREE-STANDING MOUNTAIN IN

THE WORLD.

EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF AT

ADVENTURERS TRY TO CLIM IT.

THOSE WHO DARE HAVE TO FIGHT

THE ELEMENTS, WITH BLAZING

TEMPERATURES AT THE BASE,

AND BELOW FREEZING WEATHER

AT THE TOP.

PLUS, THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH

RAIN, SNOW, AND SEVERE

OXYGEN DEPRIVATION.

IF ALL OF THAT SOUNDS TOUGH,

IT SHOULDN'T BE MUCH OF A

PROBLEM FOR THE LOVELY LADY

WHO IS SITTING ON MY RIGHT,

WENDY.

LOOK AT THIS.

HI, I'M WEN GRI WENDY

GRIFFITH, AND HEI I'M HERE

AT FITNESS 24.

AND PEOPLE ARE ASKING ME HOW

ARE YOU GETTING READY TO

CLIMB MOUNT KILIMANJARO.

HERE IS MY PERSONAL TRAINER,

ANDRE.

THERE IS NO WAY TO

COMPLETELY GET READY TO

CLIMB 15,000 PLUS FEET, BUT

WE'RE DOING A COMBINATION.

WE'RE GOING TO DO

RESISTANCE TRAINING, HEART

TRAINING, AND I'M GOING TO

HAVE YOU MENTALLY READY.

WE'RE GOING TO START WITH A

SET OF LUNGES.

MAKE SURE THAT BACK HEEL

STAYS UP.

WE'RE GOING TO GO DOWN AND

COME UP ONE.

DOWN, TWO.

GOOD.

DOWN, THREE.

MAKE SURE THAT BACK KNEE

BENDS.

FOUR, FIVE.

GOOD.

TWO, THREE, FOUR.

Wendy: WHAT'S THIS

DOING?

YOU'RE STRENGTHENING YOUR

LEGS.

THIS IS CORE WORK.

GIVE IT A JUMP, ONE.

GOOD JOB, WENDY.

BACK UP, GOOD, WENDY.

GOT THE HEART RATE COMING UP

NOW.

THREE.

Wendy: SO THESE ARE

MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS, WHICH I

WILL BE DOING IN TWO WEEKS.

I LIKE THIS ONE.

OKAY, ONE.

GOOD.

GO FOR THREE.

THREE.

TWO.

ONE.

STAY IN THERE WITH ME.

GIVE ME SOME JUMPING

SQUATS.

ONE.

THERE YOU GO.

PERFECT.

TWO.

THREE.

FOUR.

FIVE -- LOOK HOW HIGH YOU'RE

GETTING.

SIX.

FIVE, FOUR, THREE, TWO,

ONE.

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: YOU MUST BE SORE

AS A BOIL.

Wendy: I AM A LITTLE

SORE.

WE DID THREE SETS OF THAT.

WE DID MORE OFF-CAMERA.

YOU KNOW, ON THE WEEKENDS,

OF COURSE -- THAT'S JUST

WHAT I'M DOING IN THE GYM.

AND I'M SWIMMING AND HIKING

ON THE WEEKENDS.

ANDRE IS FANTASTIC.

AND HE MAKES IT FUN.

BUT HE IS SERIOUS.

HE GETS THE JOB DONE.

Pat: WELL, YOU DON'T

WANT TO DIE ON THE

MOUNTAIN.

Wendy: I DON'T WANT TO

DIE.

BUT, YOU KNOW, IF I KNEW I

COULD DO IT, IT WOULDN'T BE

FUN.

I LIKE THE CHALLENGE OF NOT

KNOWING.

Pat: YOU JUST STAY

ALIVE.

PLEASE DO STAY ALIVE.

Wendy: THAT'S MY ORDER,

STAY ALIVE.

Pat: ALL RIGHT, LET'S

TAKE SOME QUESTION.

Wendy: CAMILLA WRITES

IN, "DOES A PERSON HAVE TO

RESPENT OR FORGIVE OTHERS TO

BE HEALED.

JESUS DID NOT MENTION ANY OF

THE TWO WHEN HEALING

PEOPLE."

Pat: HE IS GOD AND HE

CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS TO

DO.

HE SAID, WHEN YOU PRAY,

FORGIVE.

IF YOU WANT THE MOUNTAIN TO

MOVE AND YOU WANT FINANCIAL

BLESSING AND YOU WANT TO

HAVE HEALING, YOU HAVE TO

HAVE A FORGIVING HEART.

IT IS THE 11th CHAPTER OF

MARK.

YOU CAN GO INTO IT IN GREAT

DETAIL.

THE ANSWER, BASICALLY, IS IF

YOU DON'T HAVE A FORGIVING

SPIRIT, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

SEE MIRACLES.

Wendy: "DEAR PAT, I SEE

SO MUCH BAD NEWS ON THE NEWS

AND NEWSPAPER, AND IT MAKES

ME WONDER IF THERE IS ANY

HOPE LEFT IN OUR WORLD.

IT MAKES ME SCARED FOR MY

CHILDREN'S FUTURE OR IF THEY

WILL EVEN HAVE ONE.

DO YOU THINK THERE IS HOPE

LEFT IN OUR WORLD?"

Pat: A FEW YEARS AGO,

WE HAD OUR FOURTH CHILD, AND

SHE IS A LITTLE GIRL, AND I

LOOKED AT THAT GIRL AND

SAID, HOW CAN I BRING A

CHILD INTO THIS WORLD THAT

IS SO CORRUPT.

THE DEARCHLTHE DANGERS TO A

YOUNG GIRL, THERE IS RAPE

AND SHE COULD GET HURT.

WELL, SHE IS CROWDING 50,

AND SHE HAS THREE WONDERFUL

CHILDREN.

ONE OF HER DAUGHTERS JUST

GOT MARRIED AND SHE IS DOING

VERY WELL.

THE ANSWER IS, GOD HOLDS THE

FUTURE.

DON'T BE SCARED OF THE

FUTURE.

WHEN YOU GO OUT INTO THE

FUTURE, YOU GO OUT INTO

GOD.

HE HOLDS THE FUTURE.

HE IS THE FUTURE.

FEAR NOT, I AM WITH YOU.

I AM WITH YOU.

YES, THE WORLD IS GETTING

WORSE.

IT IS GETTING WORSE.

BUT GOD IS THE SAME TODAY,

YESTERDAY, AND FOREVER.

Wendy: THAT'S A GOOD

WORD.

THANKS, PAT.

CYNTHIA WRITES, "I HAVE BEEN

CONSIDERING HYPNOTISM FOR

WEIGHT LOSS.

I MENTIONED IT TO MY MOTHER,

AND SHE MENTIONED IT COULD

OPEN THE DOORS TO EVIL

SPIRITS.

I DON'T WANT TO RESORT TO

HYPNOSIS IF MOTHER IS

RIGHT."

Pat: WHEN YOU OPEN UP

YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS TO SOMEONE

ELSE THEY CAN IMPLANT

THOUGHTS.

WHEN YOU WAKE UP, AND YOU

MAY GO AND SLAP YOUR FATHER

IN THE FACE AND YOU DON'T

KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

THEY PLANTED THAT IN YOUR

SUB CONSCIOUS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO OPEN UP

YOUR SUBCONSCIENCE TO

SUGGESTION.

IT IS A PROGRESSIVE

SUGGESTION, AND THEY LEARN

MORE AND MORE SITUATIO MORE

SUGGESTION, AND IT LEADS TO

ALL KINDS OF STUFF.

GO TO THE HEALTH FOOD STORE

AND GET A ACYTL, AND GET

EXTRA STRENGTHEN GREEN TEA,

AND START CUTTING DOWN ON

YOUR FOOD, AND YOU'LL LOOSE

WEIGHT LIKE IT IS GOING OUT

OF STYLE.

Wendy: A VIEWER WRITES,

"I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH

ACNE FOR THE PAST FIVE

YEARS, AND I HAVE THOUGHTS

OF SUICIDE.

I PRAY EVERY DAY THAT GOD

WILL HEAL ME AND I FEEL LIKE

HE DOESN'T HEAR ME.

WHAT CAN I DO?"

Pam: A

Pat: A COUPLE OF YEARS

AGO WE HAD A DOCTOR ON THE

SHOW NAMED PERRICONE.

AND HE HAS A BOOK --

Wendy: I'VE GOT SEVERAL

OF HIS BOOKS.

DR. PERRICONE, I'M A BIG FAN

OF HIS.

Pat: HIS IS A FIT GUY,

AND HE KNOWS ABOUT ACNE.

A LOT OF FOLKS DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO, AND WHAT THEY

GIVE YOU IS

COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE.

SO PERRICONE HAS GOT THE

SECRETS ON ACNE.

IT HAS TO DO WITH OIL, AND

I'M SURE YOU CHANGE YOUR

DIET --

Wendy: AND HORMONES

SOMETIMES.

Pat: GO TO MORE

PLANT-BASED FOOD AND

VEGETABLES.

THE LORD WILL GET YOU FREE

OF THAT.

AND OF COURSE IT COULD BE A

CURSE.

THE LORD WILL TAKE YOU

FREE.

BUT IT COULD BE HORMONAL,

BUT GET THE BOOK AND GO TO

SOMEBODY WHO REALLY KNOWS

WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND

THEY'LL HELP YOU.

THANKS FOR THOSE QUESTIONS.

Wendy: GREAT ANSWERS,

AS ALWAYS.

STILL TO COME, A HUSBAND WHO

DIDN'T LISTEN TO HIS WIFE

AND WOUND UP PAYING THE

PRICE.

I FAILED TO FOLLOW THE

INSTRUCTIONS, LIKE MOST MEN

WILL DO.

AND THE NEXT THING I KNOW,

THE PAIN WAS SO BAD IT WAS

CLEAR UP INTO MY EAR WHEN I

SWALLOWED.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

CURED HIS PAIN, NEXT.

Wendy: LARRY THOMAS WAS

JUST DOING SOME SPRING

CLEANING, AND HIS ALLERGIES

FLARED UP.

HE TRIED MEDICINE TO CURE

HIS PAIN, BUT NOTHING

WORKED, UNTIL HE TURNED ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

MY WIFE AND I DECIDED TO

CLEAN UP THE BASEMENT, WHICH

IS EXTREMELY DUSTY.

AND I'M A BIT ALLERGIC TO

DUST.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I GOT

THIS COUGH AND I PICKED UP

HIS ASTHMA SPRAY AND STARTED

USING IT.

I FAILED TO FOLLOW THE

INSTRUCTIONS, LIKE MOST MEN

WILL DO, ACCORDING TO MY

LIFE, AND I DIDN'T RINSE MY

MOUTH.

THE NEXT THING I KNOW, I'VE

GOT THIS AWFUL COATING ALL

OVER MY TONGUE, THIS AWFUL

TASTE IN MY MOUTH.

I HAD OPEN SOARS UP IN MY

THROAT AND UP ALONG MY

GUMS.

WHAT IS GOING ON?

SO I WENT TO THE DOCTOR AND

THEY DIAGNOSED ME WITH A

VIRUS, A FUNGUS FROM THE

STEROID, AND THEY GAVE ME

THIS MOUTHWASH.

I TRIED THAT, AND IT DIDN'T

TAKE AWAY THE PAIN.

IT WAS SO BAD, I WOULD

LITERALLY HAVE TO TAKE MY

THUMB AND PRESS MY THROAT

BECAUSE THE PAIN WAS UP IN

MY EAR.

I WAS BEGINNING TO LOSE

WEIGHT.

THEY TOLD ME THERE WAS

NOTHING MEDICALLY THEY COULD

DO TO GET RID OF IT.

I ACTUALLY PRAYED TO GOD,

FATHER, TAKE THIS PAIN AWAY

FROM ME.

AND I FIGURED SOMETHING WAS

GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE YOU

CAN'T ASK THAT YOU DON'T

RECEIVE.

AND I JUST WAS SITTING HERE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" ONE

MORNING, AND TERRY GAVE THIS

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE LESIONS ALL

OVER YOUR TONGUE AND THE

INSIDE OF YOUR MOUTH, ALSO

VERY PAINFUL.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

WHAT HAS STAYED AND LINGERED

IS GOING TO GRADUALLY,

SLOWLY GO AWAY AND YOU'LL

NOT HAVE IT AGAIN.

THE FIRST THING I SAID

WAS, THAT'S FOR ME.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I REALIZED

THAT THE PAIN IN MY THROAT

WAS GONE AND I WAS

SWALLOWING.

AND I WENT OUT AND I HAD

BREAKFAST.

AND I WAS ABLE TO ENJOY MY

BREAKFAST FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN QUITE A WHILE.

IT WAS JUST LIKE THOSE

LESIONS WERE JUST LIKE

ICEBERGS.

THEY STARTED GETTING SMALLER

AND SMALLER AND SMALLER, AND

THE BLISTERS GOT SMALLER AND

BEGAN TO DRY UP, AND IT

HASN'T COME BACK.

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE

LOVING AND HEALING POWER OF

OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND

HE IS STILL THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

WE HAVE TO DEPEND ON GOD.

SOMETIMES WE JUST HAVE TO

CONTINUE TO PRAY BECAUSE GOD

WILL HEAL US.

THATHATTHAT'S A PROMISE.

HE DIDN'T SAY, BY MY STRIPES

YOU MIGHT BE HEALED.

JESUS SAID BY HIS STRIPES WE

ARE HEALED.

JUST EXERCISE YOUR FAITH.

JUST BELIEVE IT.

BELIEVE THAT IT IS FOR YOU

AND ACCEPT IT.

Wendy: JUST BELIEVE

THAT IT IS FOR YOU AND

ACCEPT IT.

LARRY GOT IT, DIDN'T HE?

Pat: HE SURE DID.

Wendy: PAMELA OF

KINGSTON, NEW YORK, HURT HER

BACK WHILE PLAYING WITH HER

GRANDDAUGHTER.

THE PAIN WAS TERRIBLE EVERY

TIME SHE TURNED OR EVEN

COUGHED.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB" WHEN SHE

HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVEN A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT SOMEONE

WHO WRENCHED THEIR BACK AND

WAS VERY SORE.

YOU SAID, RIGHT NOW YOUR

GOING TO STAND TALL, AND THE

PAIN LEFT AND SHE HAS HAD NO

TROUBLE SINCE.

Pat: SOMEBODY NAMED

SHIRLEY, WHO LIVES IN

TENNESSEE, HAD AN INFECTION

IN HER EAR.

AND THE PAIN DID NOT CLEAR

UP FOR DAYS.

AND SHE SAID THE PAIN

WORSENED OVER THE NEXT FEW

MONTHS.

SHE COULDN'T STAND TO BE

OUTSIDE IN THE WIND OR EVEN

IN A ROOM WITH A RUNNING

FAN.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND WENDY, YOU

GAVE A WORD.

YOU SAID, "A VERY PAINFUL

EAR INFECTION IS GETTING

HEALED."

AND SHIRLEY SAID THAT WORD

IS FOR ME.

AND, GUESS WHAT?

SHE GOT IMMEDIATE RELIEF.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, GOD IS

ABLE.

GOD IS ABLE.

JESUS SAID, WITH MAN IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE, BUT WITH GOD ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

I'M GOING TO JOIN HANDS WITH

THIS YOUNG LADY RIGHT HERE,

AND WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

FOR YOU AT THIS MOMENT.

FATHER, I PRAY WITH WENDY.

WE ASK THE LORD FOR THE

POWER OF GOD TO COME INTO

SOMEBODY'S LIFE AND INTO

THEIR HEART.

THERE IS A PERSON, I BELIEVE

THE NAME IS CHARLES, AND

YOU'VE GOT A FUNGUS IN YOUR

LUNGS.

RATE AT THIS MOMENT, THAT

FUNGUS IS DISSOLVING AND

GOING AWAY.

JUST COUGH AND YOUR LUNGS

WILL BE CLEAR.

IT WON'T COME BACK, IN

JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: THERE IS SOMEONE

RIGHT NOW, YOU ARE IN SO

MUCH FEAR, AND YOU ARE

WAITING FOR A PROGNOSIS.

I HEARD THE LORD SAY TO TELL

YOU THE PROGNOSIS IS GOOD.

DO NOT FEAR.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THERE IS A WOMAN,

YOU'VE GOT A URINARY TRACT

INFECTION.

AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT

HASN'T BEEN SUBJECT TO THE

NORMAL ANTIBIOTICS.

RIGHT NOW YOU'LL FEEL A

BURNING IN THAT PART OF YOUR

ANATOMY AND THE INFECTION IS

GONE AND YOU'LL BE

COMPLETELY HEALED FROM THIS

MOMENT ON IN JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU FELL OFF A LADDER, AND

YOU BROKE SOMETHING AND IT

IS VERY PAINFUL.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT NOW, AND YOU

NEED THAT HEALING.

YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO

WORK.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT

NOW, AND YOUR RECOVERY IS

NOT GOING TO TAKE LONG.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: BLESS EVERYONE IN

THIS AUDIENCE.

WE ASK FOR THE BLESSING OF

GOD FOR THEM, FOR THEIR

FINANCES, THEIR FAMILIES,

AND THEIR HEALTH.

IN JESUS' NAME, TOUCH THEM.

AMEN.

IT SEEMS TO BE ALL OF THE

TIME WE'VE GOT.

WE APPRECIATE ALL OF THE

THINGS WE'VE BEEN DOING

TODAY.

FOR WENDY AND ME, THIS IS

PAT ROBERTSON.

AND WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

PSALM 125: "HE WILL FULFILL

THE DESIRE OF THOSE WHO FEAR

HIM.

HE ALSO WILL HEAR THEIR CRY

AND SAVE THEM.

THE LORD PRESERVES ALL WHO

LOVE HIM."

NEXT WEEK, YOU'LL MEET A

CHILD CALLED THE MIRACLE

BOY, AND FIND OUT HOW HE

SURVIVED A BROKEN NECK.

SEE YOU MONDAY.
