Award-winning worship leader Paul Wilbur and his band will perform a song from his latest album. Plus, Coach Bobby Bowden admits football isn’t the most important thing in his life. Read Transcript


I SEE PROGRESS.

Wendy: FIVE YEARS AFTER

THE DAY OF TEARS...A NEW

SOUND RISES OUT OF HAITI.

THAT WILL BRING HOPE TO

HAITI.

IT HAS ALREADY BEGUN.

Wendy: AND THEN, A HEAD

COACH, HEAR HOW HE GUIDED

HIS TEAM THROUGH A GAME.

THE TEAM THAT CAN SURVIVE

IS THE ONE THAT IS GOING TO

WIN IT.

MAN, YOU'RE GOING BE THE

CLOSEST THING THESE BOYS

EVER HAD TO A FATHER.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

U.S. AIRSTRIKES IN SYRIA

PREVENTED AN IMMINENT

TERRORIST ATTACK AGAINST

U.S. PLANES.

THAT'S THE WORD FROM THE

MILITARY AND THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

Wendy: AND IT'S JUST

THE BEGINNING OF A LONG

CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE ISLAMIC

STATE.

TODAY NEW AIRSTRIKES CAME AS

PRESIDENT OBAMA WORKED TO

RALLY SUPPORT AT THE UNITED

NATIONS.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE

LATEST.

Reporter: ONE DAY AFTER

LAUNCHING AIRSTRIKES IN

SYRIA, PRESIDENT OBAMA MET

WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF THE

FIVE ARAB NATION COALITIONS

THAT SUPPORTED THE ATTACKS.

President Obama: WELL,

IT IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO

WELCOME THESE LEADERS,

FRIENDS, PARTNERS FROM THE

REGION AND TO SAY THANK YOU

TO ALL OF THEM FOR THEIR

PARTICIPATION AND COMMITMENT

TO ROLLING BACK THE VIOLENT

EXTREMISM.

Reporter: THE PENTAGON

BRIEFED ISRAELI OFFICIALS

BEFORE THE ATTACKS, AND SAYS

THEIR INITIAL ASSESSMENTS

INDICATED THE ATTACKS WERE

SUCCESSFUL.

THE PENTAGON SAYS THE GROUP

WAS PLANNING ATTACKS AGAINST

U.S. AIRPLANES.

WE'VE BEEN WATCHING THIS

GROUP CLOSELY FOR SOME

TIME.

WE BELIEVE THE KHORASAN

GROUP WAS NEARING AN

EXECUTION PHASE, AND WE KNOW

THAT THE KHORASAN GROUP HAD

ATTEMPTED TO RECRUIT PEOPLE

TO INFILTRATE BACK INTO

THEIR HOMELANDS.

Reporter: SOME

REPUBLICANS SUPPORTED THE

ATTACKS BUT DO HAVE CONCERNS

ABOUT THE COALITION.

THESE ALLIES REALLY PLAY

BOTH SIDES.

THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF

REPORTER ABOUT QATAR,

ESPECIALLY, FINANCING ISIL,

AND QATAR IS THE HOME OF

al-JAZEERA, WHICH HAS

ALREADY BROADCAST

ANTI-AMERICAN INTERVIEWS,

AND THAT'S THEIR FOCUS.

AT LEAST THEY'RE PROTECTING

BOTH SIDES.

I'M NOT IN FAVOR OF THAT.

THEY SHOULD BE SOLIDLY WITH

US, BUT HATS OFF TO THEM FOR

PARTICIPATING.

Reporter: RUSS ADDED

THAT THE FIGHT AGAINST

TERRORISM IS THE NEW

NORMAL.

IN THE MEANTIME, AN

ESTIMATED 140,000 KURDISH

REFUGEES HAVE FLED TO TURKEY

AFTER ANOTHER ONSLAUGHT BY

THE UNITED STATES.

THE WAR IS GOING ON NOW.

WE WENT TO THE NEXT VILLAGE,

AND THEY ATTACKED US.

WE WENT TO ANOTHER VILLAGE,

AND THEY ATTACKED IT, TOO.

AND THEN WE WENT TO THE

CITY.

THE PEOPLE IN THE CITIES

FLED, TOO.

THEY SAID THEY ARE HEADING

TO KOBANI, AND AFTER THAT,

WE CAME TO THE BORDER AND

OVER HERE.

Reporter: THESE

REFUGEES ARE SOME OF THE

LATEST VICTIMS OF THE

ISLAMIC STATES.

NOW THAT AN AIR CAMPAIGN HAS

BEGUN, MANY IN THE REGION

HOPE IT WILL HELP ROLL BACK

THE SCURGE OF THIS BARBARIC

GROUP.

CHRIS MITCHELL, JERUSALEM.

Pat: THE ARM OF THE

ISLAMIC STATE REACHES ALL

THE WAY TO AUSTRALIA.

A MAN BELIEVED TO BE AN ISIS

SUPPORTER HAS JUST BEEN SHOT

AND KILLED BY AUSTRALIAN

POLICE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON THAT

STORY FROM OUR CBN NEWS

BUREAU IN WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: PAT, AUSTRALIAN

POLICE SHOT THE SUSPECTED

TERRORIST AFTER HE STABBED

TWO POLICE OFFICERS IN

MELBOURNE.

HE DISPLAYED WHAT APPEARED

TO AN ISLAMIC STATE FLAG.

HE CARRIED OUT HIS KNIFE

ATTACK AFTER HE WAS ASKED TO

ANSWER QUESTIONS IN A POLICE

INVESTIGATION.

SOME SUSPECT THE ATTACK WAS

PROMPTED BY ISIS, CALLING ON

SUPPORTERS IN OTHER

COUNTRIES TO WAGE WAR

WHEREVER THEY ARE.

ABUCADI HAS BEEN CLEARED.

A COURT IN JORDAN ACQUITTED

HIM BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF

CONVINCING CHARGES.

HE IS KNOWN FOR HIS FIERY

PRO-al-QAEDA SPEESMS,

SPEECHES, ALTHOUGH HE HAS

ALSO SPOKEN OUT AGAINST

ISIS.

HE HAD ORIGINALLY CHARGED

WITH PLANS TO TARGET ISRAELI

AND WESTERN TOURISTS AND

DIPLOMATS IN JORDAN.

IN A SEPARATE CASE IN JUNE,

HE WAS ACQUITTED OF A FOILED

1999 PLAN TO ATTACK AN

AMERICAN SCHOOL IN AMMAN.

CLIMATE CHANGE HAS BEEN A

BIG TOPIC AT THE AGENDA THIS

WEEK.

SOME ARE CHARGING THERE IS

NO EVIDENCE THE EARTH IS

FACING A CLIMATE

CATASTROPHE.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA WAS THE HEADLINER AT A

MARATHON SESSION OF WORLD

LEADERS WHO PROMISED TO

SPEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO

FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE.

President Obama: THERE

IS ONE ISSUE THAT WILL

DEFINE THE CONTOURS OF THIS

CENTURY MORE DRAMATICALLY

THAN ANY OTHER, AND THAT IS

THE URGENT AND GROWING

THREAT OF A CHANGING

CLIMATE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S WORDS REFLECTED

THE VIEWS OF MOST DEMOCRATS,

WHO, ACCORDING TO ONE POLL,

VIEW CLIMATE CHANGE AS A

BIGGER THREAT THAN THE

ISLAMIC STATE.

THE PRESIDENT PLEDGED TO

SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER

INCLINING THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT TO CONSIDER

CLIMATE CHANGE WHEN

INVESTING IN NEW NATIONS.

President Obama: WE

WANT TO EMPLOY THE UNIQUE

CAPABILITIES OF THE UNITED

STATES, FROM CLIMATE DATA TO

EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS.

Reporter: ALL OF WHICH

WILL COST THE AMERICAN

TAXPAYERS A LOT OF MONEY.

BUT MISSING FROM THE

PRESIDENT'S SPEECH IS THE

GROWING VIEW THAT CLIMATE

CHANGE IS NOT A THREAT

BECAUSE THE EARTH STOPPED

WARNING 18 YEARS AGO.

AND CATASTROPHIC WEATHER

EVENTS HAVE BEEN LESS

FREQUENT, AND ANTARCTIC ICE

CONTINUES TO GROW AND NOT

SHRINK.

WHAT IT REALLY SHOWS IS

CLIMATE AND WEATHER ARE MUCH

MORE VARIABLE THAN OUR

COMPUTER MODELS SHOWED THEY

WERE, AND IT IS NOT GOING TO

WARM UP AS MUCH AS IT WAS

SUPPOSED TO.

Reporter: AND THIS WEEK

HAS SEEN PROTESTS AROUND THE

WORLD FOR LEADERS TO STOP

CLIMATE CHANGE.

THOUSANDS MARCHED IN NEW

YORK, AND IT HAS SOME VERY

STRANGE VIEWS.

ESSENTIALLY WE'RE

EMBODYING THE ENERGIES OF

THE OCEAN.

AND THE OCEAN IS VERY

SYNONYMOUS WITH THE ENERGY

OF WATER THAT ALSO RESIDES

IN THE BODY.

THE BUDDHISM CONCERNS

ITSELF WITH ALL BEINGS, NOT

JUST HUMAN BEINGS, BUT ALL

BEINGS.

IT IS ALL ABOUT BALANCE

AND SPIRITUALITY IS

CONNECTED TO THE EARTH.

WE HONOR THE EARTH AND

EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.

POLAR BEAR BEARS A

DISPROPORTIONATE BURDEN.

SO POLAR BEAR IS HAVING A

PART OF THE MARCH.

Reporter: FRENCH

PHILOSOPHY BRUTMARE HAS

WRITTEN THE FANATIC CISISM

OF THE APOCALYPSE.

IT CHOOSES ALL OF THE

ELEMENTS OF THE 20th

CENTURY RELIGION, ESPECIALLY

THE THEME OF THE

APOCALYPSE.

YOU HAVE THIS CULTURE OF

FEAR.

Reporter: CLIMATE

PROTESTORS ROBERT

KENNEDY, JR. SAYS ENERGY

COMPANY C.E.O.s SHOULD BE

THROWN IN JAIL.

I THINK THEY SHOULD BE IN

JAIL.

I THINK THEY SHOULD BE

ENJOYING A COT WITH ALL OF

THE OTHER WAR CRIMINALS WHO

ARE THERE.

Reporter: IT IS STILL

NOT CLEAR THAT WORLD LEADERS

WILL SUCCEED IN PUNISHING

THE WORLD ECONOMY WITH NEW

REGULATIONS.

CHINA, THE WORLD'S BIGGEST

POLLUTER, WANTS AN EXEMPTION

TO KEEP ON EMITTING CARBON,

AND SEVERAL WORLD LEADERS

SIMPLY DIDN'T SHOW UP FOR

THE SUMMIT.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

John: THE HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

COMMITTED TO FIGHTING

CLIMATE CHANGE LEFT

MOUNTAINS OF GARBAGE IN THE

WAKE OF THEIR PROTEST MARCH

IN NEW YORK CITY.

IMAGES POSTED ON TWITTER

SHOWS PILES OF TRASH,

INCLUDING CARDBOARD SIGNS

AND COSTUMES LEFT ON THE

STREETS.

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH THE NEW

YORK POST, DAVID CRUSER FROM

THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION

CRITICIZED THE PROTESTORS

FOR USING FOSSEL FUELS BY

TAKING PLANES AND BUSES TO

SUNDAY'S EVENT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA MADE

HEADLINES WHEN HE ARRIVED IN

NEW YORK FOR THAT SUMMIT.

AND IT HAD SOMETHING TO DO

WITH THE CLIMATE CHANGE.

WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA STEPPED

OFF MARINE ONE, HE SALUTED

TWO MARINES AS HE HELD A

COFFEE CUP IN THE OTHER

HAND.

IT DREW RIDICULE FROM USERS

WHO SAW THE UNORTHODOX

SALUTE AS UNPRESIDENTIAL.

WHILE IT IS PROPER FOR THOSE

IN UNIFORM TO SALUTE THE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF, THEY SAY

IT IS NOT REQUIRED FOR A

CIVILIAN PRESIDENT TO SALUTE

BACK.

Pat: I THINK THAT IS

JUST ONE MORE THING.

AS AN EX-MARINE, I BELIEVE A

SMART SALUTE IS GOOD.

BUT HOLDING -- HE KNEW HE

WAS GOING TO BE SALUTING.

HE KNEW HE WAS COMING OFF

THE PLANE.

YOU'VE GOT AIDES AROUND

THERE, AND YOU SAY HOLD MY

COFFEE CUP.

AND HE GETS OFF AND DOES

THIS, AND GETS BACK DOWN AND

PICKS UP HIS LATTE --

Wendy: I THINK WE NEED

TO GIVE THE PRESIDENT A

BREAK.

HE'S GOT SO MUCH ON HIS MIND

RIGHT NOW.

Pat: IT'S LITTLE STUFF,

LIKE A GUY GETS HIS HEAD CUT

OFF.

AND HE HAS A LITTLE

CEREMONY, AND A HALF HOUR

LATER HE IS YUCKING IT UP ON

THE GOLF COURSE WITH ONE OF

HIS BUDDIES.

THERE IS SYMBOLISM, AND HE

IS A MAIN SYMBOL.

I CAN SEE HOLDING IT IN ONE

HAND AND SALUTING WITH THE

OTHER.

HE SALUTED WITH THE CUP.

Wendy: HE'S NOT A

MILITARY GUY, THOUGH.

Pat: I DON'T CARE WHAT

HE IS, HE IS THE COMMANDER

IN CHIEF.

I WON'T GIVE HIM A BREAK ON

THIS.

HE IS GOING TO GET A LOT OF

BROWNIE POINTS BEFORE THE

ELECTION BECAUSE OF THE

AIRSTRIKES.

Wendy: THANK YOU, SIR.

Pat: VERY GOOD.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT, FIVE

YEARS AFTER AN EARTHQUAKE

WIPED OUT A QUARTER MILLION

LIVES IN JUST 30 SECONDS, A

NATION EMERGES STRONGER THAN

EVER.

HAITI NOW IS MUCH BETTER

OFF THAN IT WAS THEN.

I SEE PROGRESS.

THAT WILL BRING HOPE TO

HAITI.

IT HAS ALREADY BEGUN.

Wendy: HEAR HOW HAITI

IS REBUILDING ITSELF AFTER

ONE OF THE WORST DISASTERS

IN HISTORY.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: IT HAS BEEN NEARLY

FIVE YEARS SINCE HAITI WAS

DEVASTATED BY A CRUSHING 7.0

MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE.

A QUARTER OF A MILLION

PEOPLE WERE KILLED.

AND MORE THAN A MILLION

OTHERS WERE LEFT HOMELESS.

RECOVERY HAS NOW BEEN

PAINFULLY SLOW, BUT AS EFREM

GRAHAM SHOWS, SURVIVORS ARE

NOW FINDING HOPE ONCE

AGAIN.

*

Efrem: THESE DAYS

SPONTANEOUS SINGING SPILLS

OUT, FROM THE CHURCH TO THE

STREETS OF HAITI.

THE RECOVERY FROM THE

EARTHQUAKE HAS BEEN SLOW.

BUT IT HAS HAPPENED.

FIVE YEARS AGO HAITI WAS

LITERALLY A DISASTER ZONE.

THERE WAS RUBBLE IN THE

STREETS.

AND MOST OF THE ECONOMY,

BUSINESS, AND GOVERNMENT WAS

SHUT DOWN.

Efrem: MATTHEW MOORE

ARRIVED HERE IN 2010, SOON

AFTER THE MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE

HIT.

IT KILLED MORE THAN 200,000

PEOPLE IN ABOUT 30 SECONDS.

THIS MASS GRAVE, WITH

THOUSANDS OF UNIDENTIFIED

REMAINS, IS POSSIBLY THE

MOST PAINFUL REMINDER OF THE

QUAKE'S HORRORS.

THE STATISTICS HERE IN HAITI

ARE A SERIES OF LOWS.

LOWEST LIFE EXPECTANCY,

LOWEST INCOME, AND LOWEST

LITERACY RATES IN ALL OF THE

WESTERN HEMISPHERE.

DESPITE THE STATS, THERE ARE

GROWING SIGNS OF RECOVERY,

LIKE PAVED, CLEAN STREETS.

HAITI NOW IS MUCH BETTER

OFF THAN THEN.

I SEE PROGRESS.

IT DEPENDS ON WHO YOU TALK

TO WHETHER THAT PROGRESS IS

GOOD PROGRESS OR BAD

PROGRESS.

Efrem: PROGRESS

INCLUDES NEW CONSTRUCTION

PROJECTS, HOME-GROWN

BUSINESSES, AND THE DAILY

SOUND OF CHILDREN PLAYING

WITHOUT FEAR.

ONCE WE RAISE UP A

GENERATION OF GODLY MEN AND

WOMEN, THAT WILL BRING

CHANGE TO HAITI.

THAT WILL BRING HOPE TO

HAITI.

IT HAS ALREADY BEGUN.

Efrem: WHILE MANY

DISASTER RELIEF AGENCIES

HAVE LONG PACKED UP AND LEFT

PORT-AU-PRINCE, A COMMITMENT

HAS KEPT ORGANIZATIONS LIKE

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE" IN

TOWN TO RUN AN ORPHANAGE

TEAM.

AND COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL

HELPS SEND CHILDREN, LIKE

PIERRE, TO SCHOOL.

THESE PEOPLE ARE

PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE.

AND SO AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE,

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE THE

FIRST ONES HELPED.

THEY'RE PROBABLY GOING TO BE

THE LAST ONES HELPED.

* HALLELUJAH, REVEREND

JESSE *

Efrem: IT HAS TAKEN

YEARS FOR PIERRE TO FIND HIS

VOICE AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE.

I REMEMBER IT HAPPENED

AROUND 4:14.

SCHOOL WAS OVER AT 2:30.

I MET MOM ON THE STREETS AT

2:45.

I NEVER SAW HER AGAIN.

Efrem: PIERRE'S MOTHER

DIED IN THE DISASTER,

LEAVING HER THREE CHILDREN

BEHIND.

THE NEXT MORNING, WE WOKE

UP AND WENT LOOKING FOR

HER.g=

IN THAT MOMENT WE REALIZED

WHAT HAPPENED.

WE WENT OUT AND SAW PEOPLE

ON THE GROUND.

IT WAS WEIRD SEEING THAT

MANY DEAD BODIES.

SO I SAID TO MYSELF, OH,

GOD, MAYBE MOM IS DEAD,

TOO.

Efrem: A SEVERE CASE OF

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS LEFT

THE 17-YEAR-OLD ANGRY AND

BITTER.

BUT HE REFUSED TO SHARE HIS

FEELINGS WITH HIS FATHER OR

ANYONE ELSE.

I DIDN'T WANT TO DO

ANYTHING EXCEPT TO WAIT FOR

DEATH TO COME AND TAKE ME.

SO I BECAME SO SCARED.

SCARED TO GO TO SCHOOL.

SCARED TO GO TO CHURCH.

SCARED TO GO OUT.

Efrem: PIERRE BOTTLED

HIS PAIN FOR TWO YEARS,

UNTIL HE ATTENDED A CAMP FOR

YOUNG EARTHQUAKE SURVIVORS

AND MET WITH A CHILD

PSYCHOLOGIST.

I WAS UNDER THE SHADE OF

A COCONUT TREE.

AND SHE STARTED TALKING TO

ME.

AND I WEPT FOR THE REST OF

MY TIME THERE.

Efrem: TEARS, PRAYER,

AND SCRIPTURE ENDED HIS

NIGHTMARE AND TAUGHT HIM

THAT THERE IS --

NOBODY GREATER THAN

JESUS.

GOD IS ABLE.

Efrem: HE NOW DREAMS OF

BRINGING THAT MESSAGE TO

OTHER SUFFERING CHILDREN IN

HIS COUNTRY.

AS AN EVANGELIST AND AN

ENGINEER.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS,

PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI.

Pat: THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

I MAY ADD THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS THERE.

AND THEY'RE PRODUCING ABOUT

A MILLION POUNDS OF TILAPIA

EVERY MONTH.

I BELIEVE I'VE GOT MY RIGHT

FIGURES ON THAT ONE.

LOTS AND LOTS OF EGGS,

THEY'RE PRODUCING, TO HAVE

PROTEIN FOR THE PEOPLE.

THERE IS A CHLORINE PLANT.

THEY'RE PRODUCING CHLORINE

SO THEY CAN GET WATER FILT

TRAITED FILL FILTRATED.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WAS

THERE AND THEY HAVE DONE A

TREMENDOUS JOB.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS YOU

SUPPORT WHEN YOU SUPPORT

CBN.

Wendy: COMING UP, THE

WINNINGEST COACH IN

HISTORY.

THE HIGHER YOU GO, THE

MORE LONESOME IT GETS, AND

THE MORE YOU'RE BY

YOURSELF.

Wendy: THE LEGENDARY

BOBBY BOWDEN TELLS US WHAT

IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN

FOOTBALL, AFTER THISCH

THIS.

Pat: COLLEGE FOOTBALL

IS OUT THERE, AND THERE ARE

SOME LEGENDS OF THE GAME.

ONE OF THEM IS COACH BOBBY

BOWDEN.

HE HASN'T COACHED A GAME IN

FIVE YEARS, BUT HIS PRESENCE

STILL LOOMS LARGE AT FLORIDA

STATE.

AND AS SPORTS REPORTER TOM

BURING REPORTS, BOBBY WAS

NOT JUST A COACH TO PLAYERS,

HE WAS ALSO THE FATHER THEY

NEVER KNEW.

Reporter: BOBBY BOWDEN

WAS A COLLEGE FOOTBALL

COACHING LEGEND WHILE OTHER

COLLEAGUES CAME AND LEFT.

HE RETIRED WITH THE MOST

CAREER WINS AND BOWL WINS OF

ANY COACH IN DIVISION ONE

HISTORY.

PEOPLE SAID, DO YOU MISS

IT?

I SAID, NOT YET.

I HAVE 57 YEARS WORTH.

BUT I LOVE TO WATCH IT.

I WATCH EVERY FLORIDA STATE

FOOTBALL GAME.

Reporter: IT IS A

LOYALTY THAT COMES AFTER 34

YEARS AS THE SEMINAL'S HEAD

COACH, HE HAD TWO WINNING

SEASONS, CLOSING 14 STRAIGHT

SEASONS WITH A FOURTH

NATIONAL RANKING OR HIGHER.

WHETHER IN A SEASON, GAME,

OR QUARTER, COACH BOWDEN

STRENGTHENED HIS TEAM'S

STANCE TO FINISH STRONGER.

AS A COACH, WHEN THAT

FOURTH QUARTER WOULD COME,

WHAT UNIQUE CHALLENGE,

UNLIKE ANY OTHER QUARTER,

DOES IT POSE?

THE FOURTH QUARTER, YOU

KNOW HOW SERIOUSLY IT IS IN

A BASKETBALL GAME OR A

FOOTBALL GAME, AND IT ALL

COMES DOWN TO THAT.

THE TEAM THAT CAN SURVIVE IS

THE ONE THAT IS GOING TO WIN

IT.

AND, JUST LIKE ME, I'M IN

THE LATTER PART OF MY LIFE.

IT IS KIND OF, LIKE, BOY,

I'VE GOT SO MUCH TO SAY, BUT

I HAVEN'T GOT A LOT OF TIME

TO SAY IT IN.

Reporter: IN THE FOURTH

QUARTER PERIOD, THE MAN WHO

SERVED AS A COACH, CONTINUES

TO MENTOR AS A GRANDFATHER

IN HIS NEWEST BOOK "THE

WISDOM OF FAITH."

WISDOM COMES FROM THE

FEAR OF THE LORD, THAT WE

HONOR HIM AND PUT HIM

FIRST.

I GUESS YOU CALL IT

RESPECT.

Reporter: COACH BOW

BOWDEN LISTS WHAT HELPS HIS

NAVIGATE HIS UNPRECEDENTED

ACHIEVEMENTS.

Reporter: WHAT IS

MISLEADING ABOUT THE

JOURNEY?

YOU GET TO THE TOP, AND

THERE IS NOTHING THERE.

THE HIGHER YOU GO, THE MORE

LONESOME IT GETS AND THE

MORE YOU'RE BY YOURSELF.

TO ME, THAT'S WHY GOD HAS

GOT TO BE THE CENTER OF YOUR

LIFE.

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING THAT

IS GOING TO COMPLETELY

SATISFY YOU, AND THAT IS

YOUR LOVE FOR GOD, WHO MADE

YOU AND WHO LOVES YOU, AND

HIS SON, JESUS.

AND OUR YOUNG PEOPLE ARE NOT

GETTING THAT.

Reporter: HOW BADLY

MISSED IS THE VOICE OF A

LOVING AND AVAILABLE

FATHER?

I KNOW MY LAST YEARS OF

COACHING AT FLORIDA STATE,

SO MANY OF MY PLAYERS THERE

WAS NOT A MALE FIGURE IN THE

HOME.

THEY WERE RAISED BY

MOTHERS -- THANK GOD FOR

MOTHERS AND GRANDMOTHERS,

BUT WHERE IS THE MAN?

THE BREAKDOWN OF THE

AMERICAN HOME TO ME IS THE

GREATEST THING WE'RE LACKING

RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: IS REQUIRING

MORE FROM HEAD COACHES AND

ASSISTANT COACHES TODAY TO

HELP OFFSET THAT LACK?

AMEN.

WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY

COACHES HAVE.

I USED TO TELL MY COACHES,

MEN, YOU'RE GOING TO BE THE

CLOSEST THING THESE BOYS

EVER HAD TO A FATHER.

SO WE MUST ACT AND ACCEPT

THAT RESPONSIBILITY TO SHOW

THEM WHAT A FATHER SHOULD BE

LIKE.

WHEN I SPEAK TO A COACHES'

CONVENTION, THE FIRST THING

I TELL THEM, DON'T MAKE

FOOTBALL YOUR GOD.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE A VERY

UNHAPPY MAN IF YOU DO.

YOU PUT GOD AHEAD OF

FOOTBALL.

FOOTBALL IS A PRIORITY, BUT

NOT THE PRIORITY.

GOD IS THE PRIORITY.

AND WE MUST ALWAYS KEEP IN

FRONT OF THEM.

THE COACHES AND THE

PLAYERS.

Reporter: BOWDEN DID

WHEN HE COACHED, AND

PERSISTENTLY LONGING TO

REACH THE EAR WITH HIS

PERSPECTIVE.

I SAID, KNOW ABOUT

JESUS.

I WANTED ANY BOY WHO PLAYED

FOR ME -- WHEN THEY SIT

BEFORE GOD IN JUDGMENT,

DON'T SIT THERE AND TELL GOD

YOU AIN'T NEVER HEARD ABOUT

JESUS.

BECAUSE OLD COACH BOWDEN

TOLD YOU ABOUT HIM ON

EARTH.

IT MAY NOT BE POLITICALLY

CORRECT, BUT I THOUGHT WHEN

I COACH A YOUNG MAN, I HAVE

GOT TO MAKE SURE HE GETS A

DEGREE, AND HE PLAYS THE

BEST HE CAN, AND I WANT HIM

KNOWING ABOUT JESUS.

Reporter: HE LOST TWO

GRANDSONS IN SEPARATE CAR

ACCIDENTS.

THE FIRST CAME IN 2004, A

TRAGEDY THAT ALSO KILLED HIS

SON-IN-LAW.

COACH BOBBY THEN WROTE A

LETTER ASKING HIS IMMEDIATE

FAMILY TO TAKE INVENTORY OF

THEIR SPIRITUAL LIFE.

WE'RE NOT USED TO LOSING

PEOPLE YOUNGER.

WE'RE USED TO LOSING FAMILY,

MOTHERS, DADDIES,

GRANDMOTHERS, GRANDDADDIES,

BUT NOT CHILDREN.

OH, MAN.

THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN

EXPLAIN THAT UNLESS YOU'VE

LOST ONE YOURSELF.

JUST PLEAD WITH THEM AGAIN

TO FIND JESUS CHRIST AS

THEIR SAVIOR.

IT IS A REMINDER TO US WE'RE

GOING TO DIE, TOO.

I'M NOT ANXIOUS TO GO, BUT I

AM PREPARED IF HE TOOK ME

RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

THINK YOU'LL HEAR FROM HIM

WHEN YOU SEE HIM?

I THINK ABOUT -- AGAIN,

AT MY AGE, I WAS THINKING,

YOU KNOW, BOBBY ON, ONE OF

THESE DAYS YOU'RE GOING TO

CLOSE YOUR EYES AND THEY'RE

NOT GOING TO OPEN AND YOU'LL

BE LOOKING SQUARE AT JESUS

CHRIST.

I KIND OF CAN'T WAIT.

I CAN'T WAIT TO HUG HIM.

Reporter: BOBBY BOWDEN,

WHO'S ON-FIELD SUCCESS WHO'S

HAS A LEGACY OF LIFE-SAVING

COACHING.

I'VE HEARD JESUS AND SEEN

HIM, AND I HEARD GOD AND

FELT HIM, AND WHEN I SEE

JESUS, I KNOW EXACTLY HOW

GOD IS.

HE HAS DIED FOR MY SINS.

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS ACCEPT

HIM.

I JUMPED RIGHT ON TOP OF

THAT ONE, BABY.

I'VE GOT ME A SAVIOR.

TO HECK WITH EVERYTHING

ELSE.

THAT'S WHAT MATTERS.

Pat: 84 YEARS OLD, A

WONDERFUL MAN.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL GUY.

YOU CAN'T HELP BUT LOVE

HIM.

EVERY WORD H HE SAYS

GLORIFIES JESUS.

HE WAS A SUCCESS.

HE IS THE WINNINGEST COACH

IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL

HISTORY.

BUT THAT IS NOT IMPORTANT.

WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS ONE DAY

I'M GOING TO SEE THE LORD.

ORDER YOUR PRIORITIES

RIGHT.

WE ALL HAVE TO.

IT IS SO EASY TO GET CAUGHT

UP IN THE FACT, HEY, LISTEN,

I'VE GOT TO BUY SOME STOCK.

YOU KNOW THEY JUST SOLD AN

APARTMENT IN NEW YORK CITY,

AND I THINK THEY SOLD IT FOR

$7800 A SQUARE FOOT.

$130MILLION FOR ONE

APARTMENT.

SO SOMEBODY AT THE HEDGE

FUND BUSINESS IS MAKING LOTS

OF MONEY, AND PEOPLE ARE

BUYING AND SELLING AND

GIVING AND, YOU KNOW, EATING

AND DRINKING AND GIVING IN

MARRIAGE.

WE GET SO WRAPPED UP IN

THINGS WE DO.

BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE THING

THAT IS IMPORTANT.

JESUS SAID TO MARY, THERE IS

ONLY ONE THING IMPORTANT,

AND IT WON'T BE TAKEN AWAY

FROM HER, AND THAT'S JESUS.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH

HIM?

BOBBY IS PREACHING TO THE

CHOIR.

HE IS PREACHING TO ME AND

PREACHING TO ALL OF US.

I LOVE THAT MAN AND THANK

GOD FOR HIM.

BOBBY BOWDEN, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

HE KNOWS THE RIGHT PRIORITY,

AND THE PRIORITY IS JESUS

CHRIST.

AND WHEN THE END OF YOUR

LIFE COMES, THERE IS GOING

TO BE ONE QUESTION: WHAT DID

YOU DO WITH JESUS, WHO WAS

CALLED TO CHRIST?

NOTHING ELSE MATTERS, NOT

HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAD, NOT

HOW PRETTY YOU WERE, NOT HOW

MUCH SPEECHES YOU GAVE, NOT

HOW MANY BOATS YOU'VE GOT.

NONE OF THAT IS GOING TO

MATTER.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH

JESUS?

Wendy: THAT WAS A GREAT

STORY, THANKS, PAT.

STILL AHEAD, A NEW YEAR'S

EVE CELEBRATION LIKE NO

OTHER.

PAUL WILBUR HELPS US RING IN

ROSH HASHANAH LATER ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: YOU ARE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A LOT OF VERY

IMPORTANT STUFF COMING UP

FOR YOU.

ALL OVER THE WORLD CBN

MEDICAL TEAMS ARE PROVIDING

FREE MEDICINE AND SURGERY

FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T AFFORD

IT.

AS YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE,

THEY'VE TREATED PATIENTS IN

SOME UNUSUAL PLACES.

Reporter: IN THE

AFTERMATH OF A TYPHOON THAT

RIPPED THROUGH THE

PHILIPPINES LAST YEAR, THEY

STRUGGLED TO FIND MEDICAL

HELP FOR THEIR 3 MONTH OLD

DAUGHTER.

SHE WAS STRUGGLING TO

BREATHE.

SO THEY RODE FIVE HOURS BY

MOTORCYCLE TO FIND THE CBN

DISASTER MEDICAL TEAM.

WE JUST TOOK A CHANCE.

WE WEREN'T SURE IF THEY

WOULD ACTUALLY BE THERE.

Reporter: A FLAT FIRE

HAD DELAYED THE TEAM'S

ARRIVAL, SO ACER AND HIS

FAMILY WENT LOOKING FOR

THEM.

THEY FOUND THEM A FEW MILES

DOWN THE ROAD CHANGING THE

TIRE.

THERE ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD, THE DOCTOR EXAMINED

THEIR BABY AND TOLD THE

COUPLE SHE HAD PNEUMONIA.

THEY QUICKLY GAVE HER

ANTIBIOTIC, ALONG WITH

ENOUGH MEDICINE TO CONTINUE

HER TREATMENT.

THAT ROADSIDE CARE SAVED

BABY HANNAH'S LIFE.

IT WAS GOOD THAT WE SAW

HER.

SHE COULD HAVE DIED IF WE

HAD NOT FOUND HER.

Reporter: AND WE GAVE

THE COUPLE FOOD AND SUPPLIES

FOR THE JOURNEY HOME.

THANKS FOR SAVING OUR

BABY'S LIFE.

Pat: THANKS FOR SAVING

OUR BABY'S LIFE.

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF TIMES WE HEAR

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

THANKS, THANKS, THANKS.

I'M GLAD YOU WERE THERE.

YOU WERE AN ANSWER TO

PRAYER.

WELL, HOW DO WE GET THAT

WAY?

BECAUSE GOD SENDS US.

AND WE'RE TRYING TO BE

OBEDIENT TO WHAT HIS VOICE

IS AND WHAT HIS COMMAND IS

TO TAKE CARE OF THE SICK AND

VISIT THOSE THAT ARE IN

PRISON AND IN HOSPITALS, TO

FEED THE HUNGRY AND CLOTHE

THE NAKED.

WE'RE DOING THAT ALL OVER

THE WORLD, THROUGH CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING" OR

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," WHICH

ARE JUST SOME OF THE THINGS

WE DO.

YOU CAN PARTICIPATE.

IT IS SO SIMPLE.

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY.

IT'S NOT A LOT, BUT IF ALL

OF US GET TOGETHER, WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT TENS OF

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

SO WHAT WE'RE ASKING YOU TO

DO RIGHT NOW IS TO SAY,

OKAY, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL

IN AND SAY, YES.

AND BY THE WAY, THIS SPECIAL

MONTH, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO

TELL YOUR FINANCIAL

INSTITUTION TO JUST GO AHEAD

AND SEND MY PLEDGE EVERY

MONTH AND JUST DO IT

AUTOMATICALLY, IT SAVES

EVERYBODY SOME POSTAGE AND

SOME TIME AND MONEY, AND WE

WILL SEND YOU SOMETHING IN

EXCHANGE.

THIS IS CALLED "PSALMS OF

ENCOURAGEMENT."

EDIE, WHO IS IN CHARGE OF

ALL OF THIS STUFF, CAME TO

ME AND SAID, I WOULD LIKE

YOU TO READ THE PSALMS.

AND I SAID I CAN'T READ VERY

WELL, BUT SHE SAID YOU CAN

DO IT, YOU'LL BE BLESSED.

I WAS HAVING A HARD TIME

WITH MY THROAT AND I HAD TO

SUCK DOWN A LOT OF HONEY,

BUT WHAT CAME OUT HAS

TOUCHED A LOT OF LIVES,

APPARENTLY.

WE'RE GETTING GREAT RESPONSE

FROM THOSE WHO JOINED WITH

PLEDGE EXPRESS AND HAVE

THESE SELECTED READINGS FROM

THE PSALMS.

Wendy: THERE IS SO MUCH

POWER FROM THIS BOOK WHEN IT

IS SPOKEN OVER YOU.

THIS VIEWER WROTE TO

SAY, "THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

THE PSALMS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

C.D.

THE PSALMS HEAL THE HEART

AND REFRESH ME."

SURELY YOU WERE RIGHT ON.

Pat: I'M THRILLED.

IT WORKED.

AND I GIVE CREDIT TO THE

LORD.

I HAVE A REAL GOOD WRITER.

IF YOU HAVE A WRITER AS GOOD

AS DAVID, YOU CAN'T MISS.

Wendy: AND YOU'RE IN

VERY GOOD VOICE, SIR.

YOU SEEM TO BE IN VERY GOOD

VOICE.

Pat: IT WAS PRETTY

RASPY, BUT SOMEHOW THE LORD

TOOK ME THROUGH IT.

HALLELUJAH.

Wendy: HALLELUJAH!

PAUL, WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THANK YOU, WENDY.

GREAT TO BE WITH YOU.

Wendy: AND, BY THE WAY,

YOU LOOK FANTASTIC.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING?

MAKEUP, RIGHT HERE.

Wendy: I KNOW, WHAT

WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THE

MAKEUP.

YOU JUST SANG ONE OF YOUR

FAVORITES, ONE OF OUR

FAVORITES, FROM YOUR

ULTIMATE COLLECTION.

WHAT DOES ANANI MEAN?

IT IS HEBREW, AND WE HAVE

IT TRANSLATED IN BIBLE AS

LORD.

BUT IT MEANS MORE THAN WE

UNDERSTAND IN THE WEST.

OUR BASS PLAYER IS FROM THE

KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN.

AND SO WE UNDERSTAND

KINGDOM, AND LORD MEANS YOU

OWN IT ALL.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID MY

LIFE IS NOT EVEN MY OWN.

AND THAT'S INCLUDED IN

LORD.

HE OWNS THE WHOLE THING AND

WE ARE HIS TREASURED PRO

POSESSIONS.

Wendy: ABOUT 20 YEARS

AGO, THE LORD SPOKE

SOMETHING TO YOU.

WHAT DID HE SAY?

HE SAID, CARRY THIS

MESSAGE TO THE NATIONS IN

THEIR OWN LANGUAGE, TO THE

JEW FIRST.

THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING

NOW FOR ALL OF THESE YEARS.

Wendy: HOW MANY?

37.

Wendy: WOW!

CAN YOU IMAGINE.

I STARTED WHEN I WAS TWO, SO

THAT WOULD MAKE ME --

Wendy: 39.

EXACTLY.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: THE AUDIENCE

LIKED THAT.

WE JUST GOT BACK FROM

ISRAEL.

WE TRAVEL IN THE NATIONS

QUITE A BIT.

WE RECORD IN SPANISH,

PORTUGUESE, GERMAN, ENGLISH,

OF COURSE.

AND I JUST GOT A PACKET OF

RUSSIAN, AND WE'RE WORKING

ON AN ALL HEBREW

TRANSLATION.

WE HAVE SOME WONDERFUL

CONNECTIONS IN THE LAND TO

BE ABLE TO JUST GO AND

MINISTER.

WE'RE IN CUBA.

Wendy: I LOVE SOME OF

YOUR SONGS THAT ARE

HAPPENING IN HEBREW.

THEY'RE JUST SO RICH.

BY THE WAY, I'M STILL

LISTENING TO LAST YEAR'S

ALBUM, WHEN YOU WERE

HEAR, "YOUR GREAT NAME."

I WAS LISTENING TO IT THIS

MORNING.

IF YOU HAVEN'T GOTTEN PAUL'S

LAST ALBUM, CALLED "YOUR

GREAT NAME," YOU'VE GOT TO

GET IT.

I HAVEN'T FOUND ANYTHING I

LIKE BETTER, EXCEPT MAYBE

THIS BECAUSE I HAVEN'T

LISTENED TO THIS YET.

YOU ALWAYS SAID THAT MUSIC

IS THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE.

AND YOU'VE SEEN THAT OVER

ALMOST 40 YEARS --

37.

[LAUGHTER]

Wendy: WHY DO YOU FEEL

THAT?

WELL, IT'S AN OPEN DOOR.

SO WE GO TO CUBA, WE GO TO

JERUSALEM, AND THE MUSIC

ATTRACTS THE EARS AND THE

HEARTS OF PEOPLE.

AND THEN THE MESSAGE, OF

COURSE, IS IN THE MUSIC.

MUSIC IS KIND OF LIKE AN

AMBASSADOR FOR THE KINGDOM.

IT OPENS DOORS FOR US THAT

JUST SPEAK.

IF YOU COME AND SAY I'M A

PREACHER, IT'S, LIKE, OKAY.

BUT MUSIC IS A PART OF EVERY

CULTURE IN THE WORLD, AND IT

IS JUST A GREAT

DOOR-OPENER.

Wendy: TONIGHT YOU'RE

GOING TO BE PERFORMING FOR

THE CBN COMMUNITY.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN STORE

FOR THIS ROSH HASHANAH

CELEBRATION TONIGHT?

ROSH HASHANAH, THE FEAST

OF THE LORD -- I LIKE TO

QUOTE THE WORD.

I KNOW THEY'RE ALWAYS CALLED

THE JEWISH FEAST, BUT IN

LEVITICUS 23, THE LORD SAYS,

"THESE ARE MY FEASTS."

IT IS AN INVITATION TO THE

BODY OF CHRIST, WORLDWIDE,

ANYONE WHO CALLS ON THE NAME

OF THE LORD.

TONIGHT IS SUPPOSED TO BE --

WELL, IT IS, IT IS THE DAY

FOR THE SOUNDING OF

TRUMPETS.

AND THEN WE GO ON TO YOM

KIPPUR, THE MOST HOLY DAY,

NEXT FRIDAY, AND THEN THE

FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

I BELIEVE THAT THESE ARE THE

FEASTS THAT JESUS WILL USE

AS A SIGN OF HIS SECOND

COMING.

HE FULFILLED THE SPRING

FEAST IN HIS FIRST

APPEARING, AND THE SECOND

TIME WE HERE IN 1 THE 1

THESSALONIANS, THERE WILL BE

A SHOUT FROM THE LORD.

AND THE LORD WILL APPEAR AND

THE GRAVES WILL OPEN.

I THINK WE'RE AWAITING HIS

SECOND APPEARANCE THAT MAY

START ON ROSH HASHANAH.

SO BE PREPARED.

GET READY, IT COULD BE

TONIGHT.

Wendy: IF YOU LIVE IN

THE HAMPTON ROADS AREA, YOU

CAN JOIN US IN THE ROSH

HASHANAH CELEBRATION.

IF YOU'RE NOT IN THE AREA,

YOU CAN STILL TAKE PART,

JUST LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

BECAUSE WE'LL BE STREAMING

IT LIVE TONIGHT.

PAUL'S NEW ALBUM IS CALLED

"THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION,"

AND IT HAS ALL OF THE

FAVORITES ON HERE.

THANK YOU, PAUL.

IT IS ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE

YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

STILL AHEAD, WE'LL "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

TERESA SAYS, "HOW DO I STAY

FAITHFUL WHEN THE DEVIL

WORKS SO HARD IN MY FA. FAMILY.

WHY DOESN'T GOD JUST PUSH

THE DEVIL AWAY?"

PAT WILL ANSWER THAT AND

MUCH MORE WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: WE'RE THRILLED

WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING AT

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

BY THE WAY, THEY CHANGED THE

ENROLLMENT TIMES.

EVERY EIGHT WEEKS THERE IS A

NEW COHORT COMING ON BOARD.

REGENT HAS BUSINESS

EDUCATION, PSYCHOLOGY AND

COUNSELLING AND GOVERNMENT

LAW AND LEADERSHIP.

THESE ARE GRADUATE DEGREES,

AND THEY HAVE AN

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE

ONLINE.

YOU CAN CALL IN 1-800-

1-800-210-0060.

IT'S FABULOUS EDUCATION AND

A HIGHLY ACCLAIMED PROGRAM.

PRESTIGIOUS DEGREES AND

AWARDS.

I WAS TOLD THREE MORE OF OUR

LAW GRADUATES HAVE BEEN

APPOINTED TO THE BENCH.

THEY'RE JUDGES NOW.

WE HAVE GOING ON 30 JUDGES

WHO ARE GRADUATES FROM

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

A COUPLE OF CONGRESSMAN AND

GOVERNORS.

IT IS CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP

TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

IT IS AN EXCITING PLACE.

YOU CAN JOIN ONLINE AND STAY

AT HOME.

YOU CAN COMPLETE YOUR

DEGREE.

THERE WILL BE SOMEBODY TO

HELP YOU COMPLETE IT.

CALL IN.

THERE IS SOMEBODY THERE TO

HELP YOU RIGHT THIS VERY

MINUTE.

Wendy: YOU KNOW MY

BROTHER PETE GRADUATED FROM

LAW SCHOOL AT REGENT A FEW

YEARS AGO.

I JUST SAW HIM OVER THE

WEEKEND.

AND HE'S GOT MORE BUSINESS

THAN HE CAN HANDLE.

PETE GRIFFITH IN THE

CHARLOTTESVILLE AREA.

BUT HE GRADUATED FROM REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

WHAT A GREAT COMMERCIAL.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

CALL PETE.

HE IS THERE WAITING FOR

YOU.

HE IS WAITING BY THE

PHONES.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: SAY, WENDY SENT

ME.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S TAKE SOME

QUESTIONS.

Wendy: OH, MAN, SORRY.

WE'VE GOT SOME DOOZIES.

"HOW DO I STAY FAITHFUL IN

GOD WHEN THE DEVIL WORKS SO

WELL IN MY FAMILY.

I TRY MY HARDEST TO IGNORE

THEM, AS WELL AS PRAY FOR

THEM, BUT THEY ALWAYS DID

SOMETHING TO STRIKE AN EVIL

NERVE INSIDE OF ME.

I'M TRYING TO TURN MY LIFE

AROUND, BUT EVERY TIME I

FEEL LIKE I'M A STEP AHEAD,

THE DEVIL KNOCKS ME BACK.

I TRY TO IGNORE THE DEVIL,

BUT IT SEEMS LIKE THE DEVIL

HAS MORE OF A HOLD ON ME

THAN I CAN IMAGINE.

WHY DOESN'T GOD PUSH THE

DEVIL AWAY?"

Pat: YOU PUSH THE DEVIL

AWAY.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE'LL

WALK AWAY.

YOU'RE SAYING TO HIM, I

ACKNOWLEDGE YOU.

I ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR

SUPERIORITY OVER ME AND I'M

GOING TO DO YOUR BIDDING.

HE'LL BUY THAT IN A

HEARTBEAT.

BUT IF YOU SAY, IN THE NAME

OF JESUS, I BIND YOU AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL.

THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT.

Wendy: JAMES WRITES, I

RECENTLY HEARD ON BILL

MOYER'S SHOW, SOME

CHRISTIANS AND REPUBLICANS

BELIEVE THAT THE EARTH IS

GOD'S CREATION AND SO THERE

IS NOTHING PEOPLE CAN DO TO

CONTRIBUTE TO CLIMATE

CHANGE.

THAT SEEMS TO BE A DANGEROUS

POSITION AND SHOULD BE

CONTRADICTED.

WHAT IS YOUR POSITION ON THE

HUMAN CONTRIBUTION TO GLOBAL

WARMING AND THE CHRISTIAN

ROLE?"

Pat: BILL MOYER SEEMS

TO HAVE A PICK ON

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS.

HE SEEMS TO HATE

CAPITALISTS.

HE IS AFTER THE PEOPLE IN

THE ENERGY BUSINESS.

HE IS AFTER A WHOLE LOT OF

THEM, AND HE IS VERY

PERSUASIVE.

I DIDN'T SEE HIS SHOW ON

THIS PARTICULAR ISSUE, SO I

DON'T KNOW WHAT IN THE WORLD

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

BUT TO SAY WE CAN'T AFFECT

THE GLOBE, THAT'S NOT TRUE.

OF COURSE WE CAN.

I THINK THIS CLIMATE THING

THAT HAS COME OUT, VERY

FRANKLY, IS A BIG SCAM.

I THINK IT IS AN ATTEMPT --

WELL, IT'S

SOCIALIST-ATTENDING PEOPLE,

OR WHATEVER, THEY WANT TO

TAKE OVER THE GLOBE AND THEY

WANT TO RUN THINGS.

IF THEY CAN LIMIT CARBON, IF

THEY CAN LIMIT OIL AND GAS,

IF THEY CAN CUT BACK, THEY

WILL LIMIT INDUSTRY AND

ULTIMATELY THEY WILL REDUCE

THE POPULATION ON EARTH

BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE WILL

DIE BECAUSE THERE ISN'T

ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY FOR

THEM.

THAT'S WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

I HAD ONE OF THEM SOME YEARS

AGO SAY REALLY THE IDEAL

NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON EARTH IS

A BILLION PEOPLE.

AND I SAID, WHAT IF WE'VE

GOT SEVEN PLUS BILLION, AND

IT'S WELL, THEY'LL JUST HAVE

TO DIE.

IT'S HORRIBLE.

AANTARCTIC ICE IS GROWING;

IT ISN'T SHRINKING.

WE'RE IN FOR A COLD SPELL,

NOT A WARMING SPELL BECAUSE

IT IS AFFECTED BY SUN SPOTS

AND THE COURSE OF THE EARTH

AND SO FORTH.

YES, WE CAN AFFECT IT.

WE'RE STEWARDS, AND GOD GAVE

US THIS EARTH TO LOOK AFTER,

AND WE NEED TO DO IT.

WE DON'T POLLUTE THE EARTH.

WE DON'T SET OUT TRASH.

WE DON'T WANT TO PUT OUR

UNTREATED SEWAGE INTO THE

WATER.

WE DON'T WANT TO KILL THE

PLANTS AND THE FISH.

THINK OF WHAT WE DID IN

BUFFALO.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

AND THINK OF THE SPECIES

WERE HAVE EXTERMINATED HERE

ON EARTH.

YES, CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE

STEWARDS OF THIS EARTH.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO RAPE

THE EARTH BUT LOOK AFTER

IT.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

WRITES IN, "WHEN I WAS 16, I

WAS PREGNANT AND MY FAMILY

MADE ME GET AN ABORTION.

I TOLD THEM I DIDN'T WANT TO

GET ONE BECAUSE IT WAS A

SIN.

ONE FAMILY MEMBER TOLD ME I

WAS ALREADY GOING TO HELL SO

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

NO, THEY'RE NOT CHRISTIANS.

WHEN I WAS 20, I WAS

PREGNANT AGAIN AND HAD

ANOTHER ABORTION.

THIS IS ALL BEFORE I WAS

TRULY SAVED AND STARTED TO

WALK WITH CHRIST.

NOW I'M MARRIED WITH TWO

BABIES, BUT I STILL FEEL BAD

FOR KILLING MY OTHER TWO.

WILL I BE FORGIVEN OR WILL I

HAVE TO BE ACCOUNTABILITY

FOR KILLING MY TWO BABIES?"

Pat: I SAID BEFORE, YOU

ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS, AND

YOU PLEAD THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST AND SAY JESUS CHRIST

DIED FOR MY SINS.

HE WANTS YOU TO HAVE A CLEAN

CONSCIOUS SO THAT YOU CAN

SERVE THE LIVING GOD.

SO YOU MADE SOME BAD

MISTAKES.

NO, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HELL

BECAUSE YOU HAD SEX OUT OF

MARRIAGE.

THAT JUST ISN'T GO TO

HAPPEN.

BUT WILL HAPPEN IS IF YOU

CONTINUE IN SIN, THAT'S TOO

BAD.

BUT YOU SAY I WANT TO BE

FORGIVEN.

GO TO THE LORD, ASK FOR HIS

FORGIVENESS.

TELL HIM YOU WANT TO BE BORN

AGAIN.

GIVE HIM YOUR HEART AND YOUR

LIFE.

AND HE LOVES YOU.

AND YOU CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE

IN THE FACT THAT HIS DEATH

IS SUFFICIENT TO PAY THE

PRICE FOR ALL OF YOUR SINS,

INCLUDING ABORTION.

WELL, WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM THE BOOK OF

EPHESIANS 2: 8: "FOR BY

GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED

THROUGH FAITH, AND THAT NOT

OF YOURSELVES, IT IS A GIFT

FROM GOD.

NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN

SHOULD BOAST."

TOMORROW YEA WE'RE GOING TO

KICK OFF OUR ANNUAL SEVEN

DAYS OF PRAYER.

AND WE'RE GOING TO KICK OFF

ROSH HASHANAH.

AND WE'VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL

PRAYER YOU DON'T WANT TO

MISS.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
