The 700 Club - October 15, 2014

Rodrick’s search for approval began on the streets with a life of crime, but it almost ended his life. Also, Randy was a successful lawyer with poor spending habits. See how he was able to get out of debt! Read Transcript


INSIDE THE COUNTRY THAT

BANKROLLS THE TERRORISTS.

IT HAS GIVEN HAMAS

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS.

Wendy: AND HERE IS THE

KICKER: OUR GOVERNMENT HAS

GIVEN THEM BILLIONS IN

RETURN.

ERICK STAKELBECK HAS THE

EXCLUSIVE REPORT.

PLUS...HE ROBBED WITH A

GUN.

I WOULD STICK A GUN IN

YOUR FACE AND TAKE IT.

Wendy: ...UNTIL SOMEONE

SHOT BACK.

WE GOT INTO A SHOOTOUT.

Wendy: WHAT ENDED HIS

REIGN OF TERROR, ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A SHOCKING REPORT

FOR YOU.

DID SADDAM HUSSEIN HAVE VAST

QUANTITIES OF POISONOUS

GAS?

AND IF HE DID, HAS IT NOW

BEEN FOUND BY ISIS?

THE SAVAGE TERRORISTS

REPORTEDLY HAVE USED DEADLY

CHEMICAL WEAPONS TO MURDER

AMERICA'S ALLIES, THE

KURDS.

APPARENTLY IT IS MUSTARD GAS

OR SOME OTHER BLISTERING

POISON.

Wendy: THAT COMES AS

SOME ARE SAYING THAT THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ISN'T

DOING ENOUGH TO DEFEAT

ISIS.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THE

STORIES.

Reporter: PHOTOS

OBTAINED BY INTERNATIONAL

AFFAIRS SHOW THE BODIES OF

SYRIAN KURDS WHO APPEAR TO

HAVE BEEN GASSED EARLIER

THIS YEAR.

THE PHOTOS INDICATE MUSTARD

GAS OR SOME OTHER BLISTERS

AGENT WAS USED.

IT HAPPENED AFTER ISIS TOOK

CONTROL OF A REGION IN WHICH

SADDAM HUSSEIN WAS BELIEVED

TO HAVE STORED CHEMICAL

AGENTS.

IRAQ WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HAVE

CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

THAT'S WHAT THE MEDIA TOLD

AMERICANS OVER AND OVER.

BUT NOW THE U.S. TIMES IS

REPORTING THAT U.S. TROOPS

WERE REPORTED TO CHEMICAL

WEAPONS NUMEROUS TIMES AFTER

THE 2003 INVASION OF IRAQ.

THE PENTAGON KEPT THE

DISCOVERY OF THE

APPROXIMATELY 5,000 CHEMICAL

WEAPONS A SECRET FROM

INVESTIGATORS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS DEFENDING

HIS MUCH CRITICIZED STRATEGY

AGAINST ISIS.

President Obama: THIS

IS AN OPERATION THAT

INVOLVES THE WORLD AGAINST

ISIS.

OUR COALITION IS UNITED

BEHIND THIS LONG-TERM

EFFORT.

Reporter: BUT THE WHITE

HOUSE ALL BUT ADMITTED THAT

AN AERIAL CAMPAIGN ALONE IS

NOT ENOUGH.

AIRSTRIKES WILL HAVE AN

IMPACT, BUT THAT IMPACT IS

CONSTRAINED BY THE FACT THAT

THERE AREN'T FORCES ON THE

GROUND THAT CAN FOLLOW UP ON

THOSE AIRSTRIKES TO END THAT

SIEGE.

Reporter: IN BAGHDAD,

CBN NEWS REPORTER CHUCK

HOLTON SAYS ISIS IS DOING A

GREAT JOB OF MANIPULATING

THE U.S. MEDIA.

IF THEY CAN THREATEN

BAGHDAD AND GET THE U.S.

MEDIA ALL WORKED UP INTO A

FRENZY OVER IT, IT IS ALMOST

AS GOOD AS IF THEY TOOK

BAGHDAD BECAUSE WHAT THIS

GROUP IS VERY GOOD AT DOING

IS THE MEDIA BATTLE SPACE.

THEY'RE VERY GOOD AT WINNING

ON THE MEDIA FRONT.

Reporter: AND THERE IS

CONCERN THE WHITE HOUSE WILL

LOSE ITS ALLIES IN THE

REGION IS THE PRESIDENT IS

NOT WILLING TO COMMIT GROUND

FORCES TO DOING THE JOB

RIGHT.

AND DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES

TO DEFEAT A DEADLY ENEMY.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WOULDN'T YOU HATE

TO BE ONE OF AMERICA'S

ALLIES RIGHT NOW, ONE OF THE

WEAKER ALLIES, SOMEBODY IN

THE BALTICS, FOR EXAMPLE,

UNDER PUTIN'S THUMB, OR THE

PEOPLE IN UKRAINE WHO KNOWS

WHAT PUTIN WILL DO NEXT.

AND WHAT ABOUT ISRAEL?

WHO IS GOING TO STAND WITH

ISRAEL.

THAT'S WHAT IS SO SHOCKING.

WE'VE LOST OUR LEADERSHIP

ROLE IN THE WORLD.

HE SET A RED LINE IN SYRIA.

YOU REMEMBER THAT?

IT WAS A RED LINE.

IF BASHAR al-ASSAD CROSSED

THAT RED LINE, BANG, ALL

KINDS OF BAD THINGS ARE

GOING TO HAPPEN.

NOTHING HAPPENED.

NOTHING HAPPENED.

HE IS EMPTY SUIT, AS THEY

SAY IN TEXAS, ALL HAT AND NO

CATTLE.

IT'S NOTHING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE

NEED TO STAND WITH THOSE

BRAVE KURDS.

THEY NEED OUR HELP.

AND MOSTLY ALL THEY NEED IS

WEAPONS.

THEY'VE GOT PESHMERGA THAT

WILL FIGHT.

THE OTHER THING THAT IS

NEEDED, OF COURSE, IF WE'RE

GOING TO BRING AIRSTRIKES,

THERE HAS TO BE GROUND

CONTROLLERS AT THE SCENE TO

DIRECT THE FIRE OF THE

AIRPLANES.

OTHERWISE THEY'RE UP THERE

AT 20,000 FEET OR 10,000

FEET, WHATEVER ALTITUDE THEY

HAVE, AND THEY'RE DROPPING

BOMBS.

BUT THEY DON'T KNOW EXACTLY

WHERE IT IS GOING.

WE NEED SOMEBODY TO TARGET

AND SAY HERE IS THE

COORDINATE, DIRECTLY

PINPOINT AND HIT IT HERE.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE GROUND

CONTROLLERS NOW AND THAT'S

WHAT WE NEED.

IN OTHER NEWS, HERE AT HOME,

ANOTHER HEALTH CARE WORKER

IN TEXAS HAS TESTED POSITIVE

FOR EBOLA.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: PAT, THAT'S

RIGHT.

THAT HEALTH CARE WORKER WAS

AMONG THOSE WHO TOOK CARE OF

THOMAS ERIC DUNCAN AFTER HE

WAS DIAGNOSED WITH THE

DISEASE.

THE WORKER REPORTED A FEVER

ON TUESDAY AND WAS

IMMEDIATELY ISOLATED AND

TEXAS HEALTH PRESBYTERIAN

HOSPITAL.

THE OTHER EBOLA PATIENT IN

TEXAS, NINA PHAM, IS SAID TO

BE IMPROVING.

IN A STATEMENT, SHE SAYS SHE

IS DOING WELL AND IS

GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF THE

PRAYERS SHE HAS BEEN

RECEIVING.

MEANWHILE MANY ARE

CRITICIZING THE DALLAS

HOSPITAL, SAYING THERE WERE

TO PROTOCOLS IN PLACE TO

PROTECT WORKERS.

THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE

CONTROL ADMITS IT MADE

MISTAKES AND IT COULD HAVE

RESPONDED SOONER.

THE C.D.C. IS NOW SENDING A

RAPID RESPONSE TEAM TO ANY

HOSPITAL THAT DIAGNOSIS AN

EBOLA PATIENT.

I WISH WE HAD PUT A TEAM

LIKE THIS ON THE GROUND THE

DAY THE FIRST PATIENT WAS

DIAGNOSED.

THAT MIGHT HAVE PREVENTED

THIS INFECTION.

John: OTHER HEALTH CARE

WORKERS WHO MAY HAVE HAD

CONTACT WITH DUNCAN ARE

BEING CLOSELY MONITORED.

THE C.D.C. BELIEVES THERE

MAY BE AT LEAST 76 HEALTH

CARE WORKERS WHO ARE AT

RISK.

Pat: WHAT WE'RE FINDING

NOW IS WHAT I'VE SAID ON THE

PROGRAM, VIRUSES MUTATE.

THEY HAVE AN ENORMOUS

CAPACITY TO MUTATE AND AVOID

ANY DRUG YOU'RE PUTTING UP

AGAINST THEM AND CHANGE THE

TYPE OF ACTIVITY THEY CARRY

ON IN THE HOST'S BODY.

NOW, IF SOMEBODY COUGHS, IT

SPRAYS OUT INTO THE

ATMOSPHERE.

AND THAT IS ENOUGH EBOLA TO

GET SOMEBODY SICK.

IF SOMEBODY SNEEZES -- IT

ISN'T A QUESTION OF HE HAS

TO HAVE SOMETHING AND YOU

TOUCH IT AND IT IS BLOOD AND

YOU GET IT ON YOUR BODY.

THE SLIGHTEST LITTLE DROP OF

THAT STUFF IS ADEQUATE TO

BRING ABOUT THIS DREADED

DISEASE.

SO THAT'S WHY IT CAN SPREAD

SO FAST.

AND I THINK WE HAVEN'T BEEN

TOLD FULLY EXACTLY WHAT THE

SITUATION IS.

AND THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE,

BY THE WAY -- I HATE TO SEE

POLITICS INSERT NOOD THIS

HEALTH CRISIS, BUT I

UNDERSTAND THE DEMOCRATS ARE

RUNNING ADS, RUNNING

ADVERTISEMENTS, SAYING THAT

THE REPUBLICANS HAD CUT THE

FUNDING FOR THE C.D.C.

THE TRUTH IS THAT THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS USED ONE

BILLION -- COUNT IT --

$1 BILLION OF THE MONEY

ALLOCATED TO C.D.C. TO

PROMOTE OBAMACARE.

$1BILLION TO MANAGE IT AND

PUT IT OUT, PROMOTE IT,

ETC., AND THAT'S WHY IF THE

C.D.C. IS SHORT OF FUNDS,

THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS.

IT'S NOT THE REPUBLICANS

THAT DID IT.

IT IS THE ADMINISTRATION

THAT DID IT.

THAT'S AN ASIDE.

BUT IN ANY EVENT, IT'S A

HEALTH CRISIS.

IT IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC

PROBLEM, IT IS NOT A

REPUBLICAN PROBLEM, IT IS

NOT AN INDEPENDENT PROBLEM.

IT IS AN AMERICAN PROBLEM

AND IT IS A WORLD PROBLEM.

MAINLY RIGHT NOW IT IS AN

WEST AFRICAN PROBLEM, BUT IT

HAS GOT TO BE DEALT WITH

WITH CARE.

WE CAN'T POINT TO SOMEBODY

AS BEING RACIST IF HE SAYS

THAT THE WITCH DOCTOR

MEDICINE USED IN SOME OF

THOSE PRIMITIVE COUNTRIES IS

BAD.

THEY ARE.

THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF

SUPERSTITION AROUND THIS

DISEASE.

THE OTHER THING WE NEED TO

REMEMBER IS IT IS BORNE BY

MONKEYS, AND MANY PEOPLE

HAVE EATEN MONKEYS.

CLEARLY BAT DROPPINGS IN

CAVES.

AND IN ONE OF THE BOOKS, IT

WAS ABOUT BAT DROPPINGS THAT

BROUGHT ABOUT THE MAURBURG

VIRUS.

WE DON'T KNOW WHO THE

CARRIERS ARE IN THIS STUFF,

BUT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND

THAT OUR WORKERS NEED

TREMENDOUS TRAINING.

AND TO PUT THOUSAND OF

AMERICAN SERVICEMEN WHO ARE

UNTRAINED FOR HEALTH CARE

INTO THAT ENVIRONMENT IS

INSANE, BUT WE'RE DOING IT.

THOSE GUYS DIDN'T SIGN UP TO

BE INFECTED BY A

LIFE-THREATENING DISEASE.

THEY SIGNED UP TO FIGHT FOR

OUR COUNTRY.

JOHN?

John: PAT, THE SUPREME

COURT HAS BLOCKED KEY PARTS

OF A TEXAS LAW SUPPORTERS

SAY WAS DESIGNED TO ENFORCE

HIGHER SAFETY STANDARDS AT

ABORTION CLINICS.

BUT CRITICS SAY THE LAW WAS

LESS ABOUT SAFETY AND MORE

ABOUT MAKING ABORTION LESS

AVAILABLE.

THE LAW WOULD HAVE CLOSED

ALL BUT EIGHT OF THE STATE'S

ABORTION FACILITIES.

AND THE LEGAL BATTLE OVER

THE MEASURE ISN'T OVER.

PRO-LIFERS WENT RIGHT TO THE

DOORS OF THE DOWNTOWN

PLANNED PARENTHOOD HERE IN

WASHINGTON ON TUESDAY.

THEIR GOAL, TO HIGHLIGHT

THAT THE ABORTION GIANT

HURTS MEN, WOMEN, BABIES,

AND EVEN TAXPAYERS.

PAUL STRAND HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: PRO-LIFE

ACTIVISTS FEEL PLANNED

PARENTHOOD DOES WRONG ON SO

MANY LEVELS.

LIKE MAKING HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OFF OF

300,000 ABORTIONS EVERY

YEAR, BUT FORCING TAXPAYERS

TO FOOT MUCH OF THE BILL.

THOSE AT THE NEWS CONFERENCE

POINTED OUT THAT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IS TAKING

$1.2 MILLION OF TAXPAYERS'

FUNDS EVERY DAY, MAKING

EVERY AMERICAN TAXPAYER

EXPLICIT IN THE ABORTION.

OBAMACARE DOES COVER

ABORTIONS, AND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IS RECEIVING OVER

A HALF BILLION DOLLARS FROM

TAXPAYERS EVERY YEAR UNDER

OTHER FUNDING SOURCES.

Reporter: SHE SAYS HOW

PLANNED PARENTHOOD

SPECIFICALLY TARGETS

AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

80% OF THE FACILITIES ARE

WITHIN FIVE MILES OF COLLEGE

COMMUNITIES.

THEY KNOW THAT COLLEGE WOMEN

WHO ARE PREGNANT ARE

DESPERATE.

AND THEY USE THEM TO MEET

THEIR ABORTION QUOTE TOES.

Reporter: PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CONVINCES WOMEN

THAT AN UNINTENDED PREGNANCY

OR CHILD IS TOO MUCH TO

BEAR.

I THANK GOD THAT MY BIRTH

MOM, DESPITE THE COURAGE AND

VIOLENCE OF BEING RAPED,

SHOWED COURAGE AND WENT

THROUGH NINE MONTHS OF A

TRAUMATIC PREGNANCY AND GAVE

ME LIFE.

AS AN R.N., I HELD A LIVE

ABORTED BABY UNTIL THAT BABY

DIED, AND THAT IS WHAT

REALLY DREW ME INTO THE

BATTLE IN A POWERFUL WAY.

Reporter: ALLISON

HOWARD OF "CONCERNED WOMEN

OF AMERICA" TALKED ABOUT HOW

HER OWN FATHER RECENTLY

SURPRISED HER.

REVEALING DECADES AGO HIS

GIRLFRIEND ABORTED THEIR

BABY, AND HOW THAT STILL

HAUNTS HIM TO TODAY.

55 MILLION BABIES HAVE

BEEN LOST TO ROW O ROE VS.

WADE.

FOR THAT 55 MILLION MOTHERS

AND FATHERS WHO LOST THAT

OPPORTUNITY TO LOVE.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, IN DOWNTOWN

WASHINGTON.

John: PASTORS IN

HOUSTON ARE FIGHTING BACK

AFTER THE CITY SUBPOENAED

THEIR SERMONS AND 17 OTHER

FORMS OF THEIR PRIVATE

COMMUNICATION.

IT IS THE LATEST ACTION IN

THE CITY'S BATTLE OVER THE

NEW LAW PROTECTING

TRANSGENDERS.

FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO

STEP INTO THE CHURCHES AND

ASK PASTORS TO TURN IN THEIR

SERMONS OR SPEECHES, IT HAS

GONE TOUGHER.

THEY IS NOT WHAT AMERICA IS

ABOUT.

THEY WANT TO PUT FEAR IN OUR

HEARTS.

THEY WANT TO STOP THE PEOPLE

FROM EXPRESSING THE RIGHT

THAT THEY HAVE TO OPPOSE

ABUSE OF POWER AND

GOVERNMENT.

TO OPPOSE SOMETHING THAT IS

NOT RIGHT.

John: THE BATTLE

CENTERS AROUND THE HOUSTON

EQUAL RIGHTS ORDINANCE.

CHURCHES AND BUSINESSES SAY

THAT LAW COULD PENALIZE THEM

FOR THEIR BIBLICAL BELIEFS,

AND INFRINGE ON THEIR

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO

SPEAK OUT AGAINST

HOMOSEXUALITY.

MORE THAN 50,000 VOTERS

SIGNED A PETITION TO REPEAL

THE MEASURE, BUT THE CITY

REJECTED THAT.

LAWYERS REPRESENTING MANY

PASTORS SAY THE CITY'S

REPEA REPEAL IS HAPPENING.

AND NOW ANGELA ZADAPEC HAS

AN INTERVIEW IN TODAY'S

EDITION OF "FAMILY

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS."

Reporter: HIS LAST

ALBUM, "A MESSENGER," SET

FIRST WEEK SALES RECORDS FOR

A CHRISTIAN ALBUM.

AND NOW HE HAS ANOTHER

RECORD COMING YOUR WAY

CALLED "ANCHOR."

I RECENTLY CAUGHT UP WITH

COLTON.

I WANTED TO FIND OUT WHAT

HIS SONGS ARE ALL ABOUT AND

HOW DID HE MAKE IT HAPPEN.

I JUST RELEASED MY FIRST

RECORD, AND I REALIZED HOW

EASY IT WAS TO GET CAUGHT UP

IN A SCHEDULE.

I NEEDED AN ANCHOR, SO TO

SPEAK.

AND I ALSO REALIZED I

COULDN'T COUNT MY TIME ON

STAGE AS MY PERSONAL JESUS

TIME.

Reporter: THE SONG

"MORE OF YOU" IS A SONG

COLTON CALLS THE HEARTBEAT

OF THE ALBUM.

IMAGINE TWO CUPS OF

WATER.

ONE CUP REPRESENTS YOU AND

ONE CUP REPRESENTS GOD.

THE WATER IN YOUR CUP IS

ANYTHING YOU'RE PUTTING

BEFORE GOD.

IT COULD BE ENTERTAINMENT,

YOUR JOB, JOUR FAMILY.

I REALIZED IN ORDER TO FOCUS

ON GOD, WE HAVE TO EMPTY OUR

CUPS FIRST.

Reporter: COLTON WENT

TO NEW DEPTHS FOR THE

ALBUM'S EYE-CATCHING COVER.

WE ACTUALLY PLUNGED

UNDERWATER.

WE TRIED AN OXYGEN TANK AT

FIRST.

NORMALLY WHEN PEOPLE USE

OXYGEN TANKS, THEY HAVE A

MASK AND SOMETHING COVERING

THEIR NOSE.

WE DIDN'T THINK THAT

THROUGH.

AS I TRIED TO BREATHE, IT

WASN'T FUN.

Reporter: FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN HISTORY, CHRISTIAN

MUSIC WILL GRACE SODA CANS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

FEATURING DIXON'S MUSIC WITH

A FREE SONG DOWNLOAD ON

25 MILLION MOUNTAIN DEW

CANS.

WE INCLUDED A FREE

DOWNLOAD OF "OUR TIME IS

NOW."

IF YOU FIND ONE OF THE

MOUNTAIN DEW CANS, BE SURE

TO CHECK THAT OUT.

Reporter: ANGELA

ZADAPEC, NEW YORK.

AND THERE IS A NEW

FINDING FROM THE RESEARCHERS

AT THE UNIVERSITY OF

MINNESOTA, WHICH SAYS THAT

CHILDREN ARE APPARENTLY LESS

LIKELY TO GAIN EXTRA WEIGHT

AND EAT BETTER IF THEY ARE

PART OF FAMILY MEALS THAT

ARE ENJOYABLE AND RELAXING.

KIDS WHO ATE IN ANOTHER PART

OF THE HOUSE, LIKE IN FRONT

OF THE TV, WERE MORE LIKELY

TO BE OVERWEIGHT.

AND RESEARCH HAS SHOWS A

LINK BETWEEN FREQUENT FAMILY

MEALS AND LOWER-WEIGHT

KIDS.

PAT, THIS IS PROBABLY NOT

UNKNOWN TO YOU.

Pat: THE FAMILY THAT

EATS TOGETHER IS HEALTHIER.

THE FAMILY THAT PRAYS

TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER.

WHEN YOU GET TOGETHER, YOU

HAVE A CHANCE TO HAVE

INTERCHANGE AND FIND OUT

WHAT THE KIDS ARE DOING, AND

THE CHILDREN BEGIN TO

UNDERSTAND THE ROLE OF

PARENTS.

IT IS JUST A WONDERFUL

THING.

AND THE IDEA THAT I'VE GOT

TO GRAB A MICKEY "D" DOWN

THE STREET AND RUN BACK TO

WORK OR SOMETHING, THAT'S

NOT THE WAY TO DO IT.

Wendy: AND GROWING UP

IN YOUR HOUSE, EVERYBODY

KIND OF ATE TOGETHER?

Pat: YEAH.

I HAD A MOTHER WHO WAS

EXTREMELY KIND TO HER

CHILDREN.

AND SHE OVERFED US.

WE HAD THE MOST DELICIOUS

FOOD.

EATING TOGETHER WAS A BIG

DEAL BECAUSE WE HAD A LOT TO

EAT.

Wendy: EVERYBODY IS SO

BUSY NOW AND RUNNING

AROUND.

COMING UP, IT IS A TINY

MUSLIM NATION YOU CAN BARELY

FIND ON THE MAP, BUT IT HAS

BEEN CALLED THE WORLD'S

LARGEST FUNDER OF TERROR.

QATAR HAS CONTRIBUTED

OVER HALF A BILLION DOLLARS

TO HAMAS, GOVERNMENT HAMAS,

INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS AND

HAMAS LOYALISTS IN THE GAZA

STRIP.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHO

ELSE THE COUNTRY OF QATAR IS

COZY WITH AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, IT'S A

LITTLE TINY NATION ON THE

GULF.

SOME CALL IT QATAR.

THE CORRECT NAME IS CUTTER.

I HEARD IT WHEN I WAS IN

PAKISTAN.

I BELIEVE -- AND I DON'T

WANT TO BE QUOTED AT THIS --

I BELIEVE AL-JAZEERA IS

FUNDED OUT OF THERE.

Wendy: REALLY?

I DID NOT KNOW THAT.

Pat: al-JAZEERA

BOUGHT ALLEGORY'S LITTLE

DEAL AND MADE HIM A COUPLE

HUNDRED MILLION.

IN ANY EVENT, IT IS SUPPOSED

TO BE ONE OUR STRONGEST

ALLIES AGAINST THE

BLOOD-THIRSTY BANDITS OF

ISIS.

BUT, ACTUALLY, IS CUTTER

SUPPORTING RADICAL

ISLAMISTS?

ERICK STAKELBECK BRINGS US

THIS SHOCKING STORY OF WHAT

SHOULD BE ONE OF OUR STRONG

ALLIES.

Reporter: $11 BILLION

IN ADVANCED AMERICAN

WEAPONRY, APACHE

HELICOPTERS, AND MISSILE

BATTERIES, AND ANTI-TANK

MISSILES, ALL FOR A TINY

MUSLIM NATION IN THE PERSIAN

GULF THAT YOU CAN BARELY

FIND ON A MAP.

CUTTER MAY NOT BE A

HOUSEHOLD NAME FOR MOST

AMERICANS, BUT AS THIS

SUMMER'S HUGE ARMS DEAL

SHOWS, THE QATAREES ARE

AMONG THE ALLIES.

YET IT HAS COME UNDER

CRITICISM BY NATIONS LIKE

SAUDI ARABIA AND THE UNITED

ARAB EMIRATES.

THEY HAVE CUT TIES BECAUSE

IT SUPPORTS THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

THEY CALLED CUTTER THE

WORLD'S LARGEST FUNDER OF

TERROR.

CUTTER SUPPORTS HAMAS IN

THREE WAYS.

ONE IS FINANCIALLY.

IT HAS GIVEN HAMAS HUNDREDS

OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

TWO IS POLITICALLY.

THE RULER OF QATAR WAS THE

FIRST ARAB STATE TO VISIT

HAMAS-RULED GAZA IN 2012.

AND THE THIRD WAY IT

SUPPORTS HAMAS, WE CAN SAY

PHYSICALLY.

QATAR IS HOST AND HOME TO

HAMAS' POLITICAL

LEADERSHIP.

Reporter: SPEAKING TO

THE U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY,

QATAR'S IMIR URGED THE

WORLD'S GOVERNMENTS TO SHUN

ISRAELIS.

QATAR HAS PLEDGED, OVER

THE LAST DECADE OR SO, OVER

HALF A BILLION DOLLARS TO

HAMASGOVERNMENT, HAMAS

INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS, AND

HAMAS LOYALISTS IN THE GAZA

STRIP.

Reporter: DAVID

WEINBERG IS A LAYER FOR THE

FOUNDATION OF THE DEFENSE OF

DEMOCRACIES.

HE TOLD CBN THAT QATARS

CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH

HAMAS IS STARTING TO GET

ATTENTION.

WE HAVE SEEN INTELLIGENCE

FROM THE HOUSE AFFAIRS

CHAIRMAN, ED ROY, AND THEY

ARE RAISING CONCERNS ABOUT

QATAR'S RECORD IN THIS

REGARD.

Reporter: IN JULY,

PETER ROSMAN SENT A LETTER

TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION,

DEMANDING AN END TO THE

CLOSE ALLIANCE WITH

QUARTER.

QATAR.

HE WROTE, "IT IS AN

INDISPUTABLE FACT THAT IT IS

AN INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION COMMITTED TO

THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

MUST EXPLAIN ITS WORKING

PARTNERSHIP WITH A COUNTRY

THAT SO BRAZENLY SUPPORTS

TERRORISM RIGHT BEFORE OUR

EYES."

HERE WAS QATAR'S CHANCE

TO SHINE ON THE

INTERNATIONAL STAGE.

WHILE THE WORLD WAS WATCHING

THESE NEGOTIATIONS.

AND QATAR SHOWED ITSELF

HAMAS' SUPPORTER RATHER THAN

AN EFFECTIVE MEDIATOR.

Reporter: IT IS NOT THE

FIRST TIME QATAR SERVED AS

MEDIATOR FOR THE

ADMINISTRATION.

MOST RECENTLY IT SECURED THE

CONTROVERSIAL RELEASE OF

U.S. SOLDIER BOWE BERGDAHL

FROM THE TALIBAN. THE

TALIBAN EVEN HAS AN OFFICE

IN THE QATARI CAPITAL OF

DOHA.

SO DOES al-JAZEERA, THE

NETWORK WHO HAS BEEN ACCUSED

OF BEING ANTI-AMERICAN AND A

MOUTHPIECE FOR RADICAL

ISLAMISTS IS BASED IN

QATAR.

THE QATAR GOVERNMENT WAS

SUBSIDIZING AL-JAZEERA.

Reporter: THE MOST

EXPLOSIVE CHARGE IS QATAR

HELPED FUND JIHADISTS IN

SYRIA, INCLUDING AL-QAEDA

AND ISIS FRONT.

THE QATARI GOVERNMENT

STRONGLY DENIES IT.

BUT A TOP OFFICIAL SAID LAST

MARCH THAT WEALTHY PRIVATE

DONORS WHO LIVE IN QATAR

HAVE BACKED THE JIHADISTS.

THEY DESCRIBED QATAR AS A

PERMISSIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR

TERRORIST FUNDRAISING.

BUT WITH THE QATARIS

APPARENTLY ON BOARD FIGHTING

ISIS AND A MAJOR AIR BASE,

DON'T EXPECT A CHANGE IN

RELATIONS ANY TIME SOON.

ERICK STAKELBECK, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: ONCE AGAIN, YOU

ASK YOURSELF, WHAT GOES ON

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN THE

ADMINISTRATION OF THE

GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA?

WHY DO WE DO THESE THINGS?

WHAT IS WRONG?

THE UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY

OF STATE SAYS THEY WILL BE

A, QUOTE,"HONEST BROKER."

WHAT IS THE DEAL?

AND SHOULDN'T WE, THE C.I.A.

AND OTHER INSTRUMENTS OF

INTELLIGENCE IN THE UNITED

STATES, HAVE INFORMATION

THAT ERICK STAKELBECK CAN

GET?

IF ERICK CAN GET IT, SURELY

THE C.I.A. CAN GET IT.

THEY MUST KNOW THIS IS AN

ENEMY OF ISRAEL.

BUT THERE THEY ARE, AND AS I

SAY, IT IS JUST ACROSS THE

GULF FROM PAKISTAN.

WHEN I WAS IN PAKISTAN SOME

YEARS AGO, CUTTER WAS LOOKED

UPON AS A FRIENDLY COUNTRY.

AND WE'VE ASSUMED THEIR

FRIENDLY.

WHY?

WHAT'S GOING ON?

DON'T YOU THINK WE NEED TO

ASK QUESTIONS LIKE THIS?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING,

MR. PRESIDENT?

WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING THESE

ALLIANCES TO BE MADE?

WHY ARE YOU COZYING UP TO A

DEVOUT ENEMY OF ISRAEL?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, ANOTHER

ROUND OF "BRING IT ON."

A VIEWER WANTS TO KNOW, DOES

A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD HAVE

TO BE PERFECT, OR DOES IT

JUST HAVE TO BE TRUE?

HEAR PAT'S ANSWER RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

WE WANT YOU TO STAY HEALTHY

AND STRONG ALL YEAR LONG,

AND THAT'S WHY WE PUT

TOGETHER THIS FREE "PROTECT

YOUR HEALTH" D.V.D.

YOU CAN WATCH ALL FIVE

SEGMENTS OF THIS VITAL

INFORMATION, AND PASS IT

ALONG TO YOUR FAMILY AND

FRIENDS.

JUST CALL US RIGHT NOW AND

GET YOUR FREE D.V.D.,

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

IT IS OUR SPECIAL GIFT TO

YOU.

SO GIVE US A CALL RIGHT

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

WE WANT YOU TO BE HEALTHY

ALL WINTER LONG.

Pat: OKAY.

I'M GOING TO BE HEALTHY ALL

WINTER LONG.

AND YOU'LL GO CLIMB A

MOUNTAIN, IN CASE YOU'RE NOT

HEALTHY ENOUGH.

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE

ON K-2?

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO, ARE

YOU?

Wendy: I WAS MEANING TO

TALK TO YOU ABOUT THAT.

Pat: IF YOU DO, YOU'RE

CRAZY.

THE ANSWER IS NO.

Wendy: I JUST WANTED TO

GET YOUR REACTION.

Pat: NO K-2.

Wendy: WE'LL TALK ABOUT

THIS LATER.

Pat: KILIMANJARO,

THAT'S OKAY.

Wendy: OUR VIEWER

WRITES IN, "DOES A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD HAVE

TO BE PERFECT, OR DOES IT

JUST HAVE TO BE TRUE.

GOD ALWAYS DOES HIS PART,

BUT SOMETIMES I DON'T DO

THAT.

I'VE BEEN TOLD GOD JUST

WANTS ME THE WAY I AM.

WHAT TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP

SHOULD I HAVE WITH GOD

THROUGH HIS SON, JESUS."

Pat: WE ARE MADE

PERFECT BY THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST.

WE'RE SINNERS.

NOT BY WORKS OF

RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH YOU HAVE

DONE, BUT BY THE PRECIOUS

BLOOD OF JESUS.

YOU AND I ARE CONCEIVED IN

SIN.

WE HAVE LIVED IN SIN ALL OF

OUR LIVES.

THERE IS NOT A DAY THAT GOES

BY THAT WE DON'T SIN.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS BE

PERFECT, EVEN AS MY FATHER

IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT.

THAT MEANS COMPLETE,

FINISHED.

BUT IT IS FINISHED BY HIM.

IT'S HIM.

AND FAITH IS BELIEVING IN

JESUS CHRIST.

AND THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS,

LOOK, DO YOU DO THESE

MIRACLES ON ACCOUNT OF THE

WORKS OF THE LAW OR THE

HEARING OF FAITH?

IT IS THE HEARING OF FAITH.

IT IS BELIEVING IN GOD'S

POWER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR, BUT HOW DO YOU

GET PERFECT LOVE?

DOES ANY MARRIAGE HAVE

PERFECT LOVE?

YOU GROW IN LOVE IF YOU GET

TO KNOW SOMEBODY WELL

ENOUGH.

YOU GET TO LOVE MORE AND

MORE ABOUT THEM.

THE SONG BY JESUS CHRIST

SUPERSTAR, DAY BY DAY, LOVE

YOU MORE DEARLY.

WELL, YOU GROW IN LOVE.

Wendy: JOY WRITES, "IT

IS DIFFICULT TO FIND BOOKS,

TV SHOWS, AND MOVIES THAT DO

NOT HAVE SEX, BAD LANGUAGE

OR BLASPHEMY.

IS IT A SIN TO READ THE

MODERN DAY MEDIA?"

Pat: IF YOU DON'T SEE

SOME OF THESE THINGS, YOU'D

HAVE TO LEAVE THE WORLD.

THE WORLD IS SATURATED WITH

SEXUAL INNUENDOS.

GOOD GRIEF, HOW MANY ADS FOR

VICTORIA SECRET DO HAVE YOU

TO LOOK AT?

THAT'S THE WHOLE IDEA, TO

HAVE SCANTILY-CLAD MODELS

SELLING PRODUCTS, WHETHER IT

IS TOASTERS OR AUTOMOBILES

OR INSURANCE.

THE BIBLE SAYS -- IT IS THE

101 PSALM.

HE SAYS, I HAVE SET NO VIAL

THING BEFORE MY EYES.

AND THERE ARE SOME THINGS

THAT ARE REALLY VIAL.

AND THE ANSWER IS YOU

SHOULDN'T BE WATCHING THEM.

BUT THE FACT THAT THERE ARE

ABOUT 200 SCREEN WRITERS IN

HOLLYWOOD WHO HAVE THE

DOMINANCE IN THE MEDIA, AND

THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING

THEY POSSIBLY CAN TO PUT

DIRTY LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL

SITUATIONS AND NOW

HOMOSEXUALITY INTO SCRIPTS

OVER AND OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

NOW, YOU JUST SAY, WELL,

I'LL TURN THAT MESS OFF AND

NOT WATCH.

OR YOU CAN WATCH CHRISTIAN

TELEVISION.

OR YOU CAN GO OUT AND TAKE

RUNS IN THE COUNTRY.

I DON'T KNOW.

Wendy: IT TAKES A

LITTLE MORE WORK, BUT YOU

CAN FIND A LOT OF GOOD

MOVIES.

I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO

FIND A LOT.

I LOVE TO WATCH MOVIES, AND

SO I FIND THEM.

Pat: THERE IS A RANKING

SYSTEM.

Wendy: IF YOU GET THE

"R," YOU'RE GOING TO GET THE

LANGUAGE.

Pat: WE HAVE A SWEET

LITTLE LADY HERE, LIKE A

GRANDMOTHER, AND SHE WRITES

THE THE ROMANCE NOVELS.

AND SHE SAYS IT IS A

FORMULA, AND EVERY 10 PAGES

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SEX

SCENE.

AND THIS LITTLE GRANDMOTHER

WAS BREATHING HARD.

BUT SHE HAD TO PUT THAT IN

HER BOOKS BECAUSE THE

PUBLISHER SAID YOU'VE GOT TO

HAVE IT IN ORDER TO SELL

THIS STUFF.

ANYHOW.

WE LIVE IN A CORRUPT WORLD,

AND UNTIL THE LORD COMES

BACK, IT IS GOING TO BE

DIFFICULT TO LIVE IN IT.

BUT BE IN THE WORLD BUT NOT

OF THE WORLD.

Wendy: DEBRA

WRITES, "WHY ARE SOME

CHRISTIANS HIT WITH MAJOR

PROBLEMS OVER AND OVER

AGAIN, WHILE MANY OTHER

CHRISTIANS ARE JUST

CONFRONTED WITH SMALL, EVERY

DAY ISSUES.

IS IT TRUE THAT GOD WON'T

GIVE US ANY MORE THAN WE CAN

HANDLE?"

Pat: THE BIBLE IS VERY

CLEAR, GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO

WILL WITH THE TESTING,

ALWAYS MAKE A WAY OF ESCAPE

THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR

IT.

I AM A FIRM BELIEVER, AND I

KNOW IT SOUNDS A LITTLE

SPOOKY, BUT I DO BELIEVE WE

CAN BRING STUFF ON

OURSELVES.

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO

PROJECT TROUBLE.

THEY THINK TROUBLE.

THEY THINK EVIL.

WHEN THE DAY STARTS, WHAT

YOU NEED TO DO IS SAY, THIS

IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS

MADE.

I HAVE VICTORY TODAY.

AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

I'M GOING TO PREVAIL.

YOU START THAT WAY.

OR, OLD SLEW FOOT HAS BEEN

AFTER ME AGAIN AND HE HAS

GIVEN ME NOTHING BUT

TROUBLE, AND I FEEL TERRIBLE

AND I THINK I'M GOING TO GET

CANCER.

Wendy: WORDS ARE SO

POWERFUL.

Pat: BY YOUR

MOUTH,YOU'LL HEAP GOOD, BY

THE FRUIT OF YOUR LIPS.

I BELIEVE SOME OF THESE

PEOPLE BRING STUFF ON

THEMSELVES.

THEY THINK THAT WAY.

YOU NEED TO THINK VICTORY.

Wendy: GOOD ADVICE.

LAWRENCE WRITES, "PAT, I

WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE GOD

CAME FROM?"

Pat: I DON'T THINK

EVERYBODY HAS EVER KNOWN.

THE BIBLE STARTS OUT, IN THE

BEGINNING, GOD.

BEFORE THERE WAS A

BEGINNING, GOD WAS THERE.

HE IS SELF-EVIDENT.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE

BIBLE THAT GOES BACK AND

SAYS, WELL, HERE IS WHERE HE

CAME FROM.

Wendy: IT HURTS YOUR

BRAIN WHEN YOU START GOING

THERE.

Pat: WELL, THE OLD

SCHOLASTICS IN THE EARLY --

IN THE MIDDLE AGES CAME UP

WITH SOMETHING THAT THEY

THOUGHT WAS SO BRILLIANT,

AND THEY SAID THAT EVERY

CAUSE HAS A CAUSE.

WELL, THAT DOESN'T TELL YOU

ANYTHING.

ALL I KNOW IS GOD HAS TOLD

US IN THE BIBLE WHAT WE NEED

TO KNOW TO FIND SALVATION

AND TO BE HAPPY AND TO BE

SUCCESSFUL, AND TO REACH HIM

ULTIMATELY FOR ALL

ETERNITY.

HE SAYS, THIS IS THE PLAN,

HERE IT IS.

AS FAR AS WHERE I CAME FROM,

I'M NOT GOING TO TELL YOU.

AS FAR AS WHAT I AM TO

MANKIND, I'LL TELL YOU.

I'LL SEND MY SON TO SHOW YOU

WHAT I'M LIKE.

I'LL GIVE YOU A BOOK THAT

WILL TELL YOU WHAT I'M

LIKE.

I WILL GIVE YOU A BOOK TO

TELL YOU HOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED

TO LIVE.

BUT AS FAR AS WHERE I CAME

FROM, JUST KNOW IN THE

BEGINNING I WAS ALREADY

THERE.

BEFORE ANYTHING COULD

BEGIN.

SO THEY TALK ABOUT THE BIG

BANG.

I CAN GO ALONG WITH THE BIG

BANG, BUT THERE WAS A GOD

WHO EXPRESSED ALL OF THOSE

MOLECULES FOR THE BIG BANG.

Wendy: HE IS THE "I

AM."

Pat: YAWAY, I AM.

HE IS THE ONE WHO CAUSES

EVERYTHING ELSE TO BE.

I AM THE ONE WHO CAUSES

EVERYTHING ELSE TO BE.

THAT'S MY NAME.

Wendy: EXCELLENT

ANSWERS.

Pat: YOU'RE SO SWEET.

AS A LAWYER, RANDY RUGKY

EARNED A LOT OF MONEY, AND

HE ALSO SPENT A LOT OF

MONEY, AND SOON RANDY AND

HIS WIFE WERE $75,000 IN

DEBT.

AND GUESS WHAT?

THE TELEPHONE WAS RINGING

WITH BILL COLLECTORS SAYING,

HOW ABOUT PAYING UP, RANDY?

Reporter: RANDY RODKY

IS A SUCCESSFUL ATTORNEY IN

JOHNSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA.

HELPING PEOPLE IS WHERE

THE REAL SATISFACTION HAS

BEEN.

Reporter: RANDY AND HIS

WIFE, KAREN, WERE YOUNG

NEWLYWEDS WHEN THEY OPENED

THE LAW OFFICE.

HE ADMITS LAW SCHOOL TAUGHT

HIM ABOUT SECURITY AND

REGULATIONS, BUT IT DIDN'T

TEACH HIM HOW TO BUDGET.

I HAD THE ABILITY TO EARN

MONEY, BUT I HAD THE ABILITY

TO SPEND MONEY.

THE MONEY CAME IN AND IT

WENT OUT, AND WE WEREN'T

GETTING ANYWHERE.

Reporter: EXCEPT DEEPLY

IN DEBT.

THEY HAD HOME EQUITY LOANS

AND CREDIT CARD DEBT THAT

TOTALLED $75,000.

I WANTED A NICE CAR.

AND WE WANTED THIS OR TO DO

THAT.

> BEING AN ATTORNEY, I

THOUGHT, WELL, I'LL JUST

MAKE MORE MONEY.

I KNOW IT WAS CAUSING MORE

STRESS ON KAREN.

I WAS JUST FEARFUL OF

EVERYTHING.

PHYSICALLY, I WOULD HAVE

TIMES WHEN I WOULD JUST

SHAKE.

SOMETIMES YOU GET A PHONE

CALL.

THIS CREDITOR WOULD WANT TO

KNOW WHERE IS THERE

PAYMENT.

THAT WAS VERY EMBARRASSING.

Reporter: AFTER SEVERAL

YEARS, THE COUPLE AGREED ON

ONE THING: THEY NEEDED TO

RETURN TO CHURCH.

ONCE THERE THEY BOTH

RECOMMITTED THEIR LIVES TO

CHRIST.

THAT'S WHERE THEY LEARNED

ABOUT THE PRINCIPLE OF

TITHING.

I WOULD HAVE TAKEN ALL OF

OUR MONEY AND PAID OFF THE

BILLS AND GIVEN THE REST TO

THE LORD.

I WOULD LOOK AT OUR

INCOME AND LOOK AT THE BILLS

AND SAY, THERE IS NO WAY.

I PRAYED FOR RANDY, AND I

PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD SHOW

HIM.

SOON KAREN'S PRAYER WAS

ANSWERED.

I WAS GOING TO WORK ONE

DAY, AND THE FINANCIAL

PRESSURE WAS REALLY BOILING

OVER.

I JUST YELLED OUT IN THE

CAR, GOD, WHY ARE YOU DOING

THIS TO ME?

AND THE "THIS" WAS NOT

HAVING ENOUGH TO MEET THE

BILLS.

AT CLEARLY AS I SPOKE, THERE

WAS A VOICE FROM THE BACK

SEAT, AND HE SAID, DON'T

TRUST IN MONEY; TRUST IN

GOD.

THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND

THAT THE GOD OF THIS

UNIVERSE SPOKE TO ME

PERSONALLY THAT MORNING.

Reporter: THE RODKYS

SAY THEY TITHED FAITHFULLY

FOR MONTHS, AND YET SAW NO

INCREASE IN THEIR FINANCES.

FINALLY THE LIGHT WENT ON

THAT WE WERE NOT BEING GOOD

STEWARDS.

GOD WASN'T GOING TO POOR OUT

MORE MONEY FOR US TO JUST

SPEND MORE MONEY.

Reporter: SO THE RODKYS

BEGAN TO PAY THEIR BILLS

EARLY AND RECEIVED

DISCOUNTS.

THEY PAID DOWN THEIR DEBT

AND STOPPED USING CREDIT

CARDS.

AND THEY INCREASED THEIR

GIVING.

THE MORE WE DID, THE MORE

HE DID.

AND THE MORE HE WOULD TRUST

US WITH MORE.

Reporter: AND THEN

RANDY RECEIVED AN OFFER TO

BECOME A PARTNER IN A

PRESTIGIOUS LAW FIRM, AND

THEY WERE ABLE TO PAY DOWN

MORE OF THEIR DEBT.

GOD REALLY PUT IN MY

HEART TO BE DEBT-FREE.

BECAUSE THAT WOULD FREE UP

MORE OF HIS MONEY TO DO HIS

WORK.

Reporter: IN 2009, THE

RODKYS JOINED "THE 700

CLUB."

THEY'RE PUTTING GOD'S WORD

WORLDWIDE AND THEY RESPOND

WHEN THERE IS A NEED.

Reporter: TODAY THE

RODKYS ARE COMPLETELY

DEBT-FREE.

THINKING BRINGS BLESSING,

THAT IS TRUE.

BUT, ALSO, WE'RE TO HONOR

GODIN OUR LIFESTYLE.

YOU CAN NEVER OUTGIVE THE

LORD.

WE ARE LIVING THAT.

IT IS A SIMPLE BEGINNING.

JUST DO WHAT HE SAYS, DO

WHAT HE SAYS.

Pat: THAT'S GREAT

WISDOM.

I WANT TO SAY FOR ALL OF

YOU, YOU ASK GOD TO BLESS

YOU AND HE WILL BLESS YOU,

BUT I THINK HE FIRST ASKS

YOU TO GET YOUR OWN HOUSE IN

ORDER.

IF YOU'RE SPENDING WILDLY,

YOU NEED A BUDGET.

YOU NEED TO ALLOCATE YOUR

RESOURCES.

WHATEVER IS COMING IN,

WHATEVER IT IS, YOU NEED TO

HOLD YOUR SPENDING

UNDERNEATH THE INCOME THAT

YOU'VE GOT.

ONCE YOU DO THAT, ALL OF A

SUDDEN THINGS BEGIN TO

HAPPEN.

AND THE BLESSING OF GOD

BEGINS TO FOLLOW.

ALONG WITH THAT BUDGET IS AN

AMOUNT YOU GIVE AWAY.

IT STARTS WITH 10%, AND THEN

MAYBE 20% OR 30%, OR

WHATEVER.

BUT GOD WILL BLESS IT.

AS YOU USE RESTRAINT AND

DISCIPLINE, BUT IF YOU'RE

NOT DISCIPLINED, YOU WILL

NOT GET THE MONEY YOU NEED.

KEEP THAT IN MIND.

BY THE WAY, FOR THOSE OF YOU

WHO ARE JOINING "THE 700

CLUB," AND WE ENCOURAGE YOU

TO DO THAT, IT IS JUST $20 A

MONTH.

YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD AS

WE ALL WORK TOGETHER.

AND THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR

SCREEN.

WE'D LIKE YOU TO CALL AND

SAY YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

LET'S HELP THE POOR.

LET'S HELP THE NEEDY.

LET'S GET THE GOSPEL AROUND

THE WORLD.

WE CAN DO SO MUCH WITH A

LITTLE BIT IF ALL OF US WORK

TOGETHER.

AND SOME WHO WANT TO

SOMETHING, AND IT MAKES

EASIER FOR US BECAUSE WE

DON'T HAVE TO SEND OUT PAPER

AND RECEIPTS.

AND WE'RE ABLE TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

EDIE, WHO IS IN CHARGE OF

ALL OF THIS, SAID, WOULD YOU

MIND READING SOME PSALMS?

AND I SAID FINE.

AND THEY GAVE ME A COPY, AND

I READ THE COPY FROM THE

PSALMS.

TO HAVE A WRITER LIKE DAVID,

YOU CAN'T MISS.

THIS HAS BEEN A BLESSING TO

PEOPLE.

WE GIVE THIS TO EVERYBODY

WHO JOINS PLEDGE EXPRESS,

ALONG WITH "THE 700 CLUB."

Wendy: PEOPLE ARE

LOVING IT.

BILLY IN SALISBURY, NORTH

CAROLINA, SAYS, "OH, WHAT

CALMING PEACE I FELT WHEN I

LISTENED TO YOUR 'PSALMS OF

ENCOURAGEMENT' C.D.

THANK YOU."

Pat: IT WAS A THRILL

FOR ME TO HEAR IT BECAUSE IT

IS BEAUTIFUL.

TO READ THE PSALMS -- THERE

IS SOMETHING ABOUT HEARING

THE WORD.

YOU READ IT AND IT'S ON THE

PAGE, BUT YOU HEAR IT --

THEY WERE MEANT TO BE READ

AND SPOKEN.

MY HATS OFF TO THE PEOPLE AT

CBN THAT ENCOURAGE THINGS

THAT NEED TO BE DONE.

IT IS MY THRILL TO BE PART

OF AN ORGANIZATION THAT

BRINGS YOU BLESSINGS.

WENDY, YOU HAVE SOMETHING

ELSE?

Wendy: I DO.

STILL AHEAD, A STICK-UP THUG

WITH AN IN YOUR FACE

ATTITUDE.

I WAS A BEAST AND I WAS A

TAKER.

IF YOU HAD IT, I WANTED IT.

IT WAS MINE.

IT DIDN'T MATTER WHO YOU

WERE.

I WOULD STICK A GUN IN YOUR

FACE AND TAKE IT.

Wendy: SEE WHAT CUTS

THIS CON MAN DOWN TO SIZE,

COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

U.N. SECRETARY-GENERAL BAN

KI-MOON GOT A FIRSTHAND LOOK

AT THE TERRORIST TUNNELS

THAT HAMAS USED TO ATTACK

ISRAEL.

MOON VISITED THE GAZA STRIP

ON TUESDAY.

HIS TRIP FOLLOWS THE SUMMER

CONFLICT BETWEEN HAMAS AND

ISRAEL.

BON CONDEMNED ISRAEL FOR THE

DESTRUCTION OF U.N.

PROPERTIES IN GAZA.

BUT HE MADE NO MENTION OF

HAMAS USING THEM FOR

TERRORISM.

BON WAS ALSO GIVEN A LOOK AT

HAMAS TERROR TUNNELS THAT

CAUSED UNDER THE BORDER INTO

ISRAEL.

THE SECRETARY-GENERAL AULD

ON PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS

TO RETURN TO NEGOTIATIONS.

BUT HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING

ABOUT HAMAS' CALLS FOR THE

DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL.

SWEDEN ON ITS WAY TO

BECOMING A CASHLESS

SOCIETY.

THE LOCAL REPORTS THAT A NEW

STUDY SAYS FOUR OF FIVE

PURCHASES IN SWEDEN ARE PAID

CREDIT CARD.

PAT AND WENDY WILLBACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: HOW IS THIS FOR A

RESUME: A HUSTLER, A THIEF,

AND A DOPE DEALER.

ROGER THOMAS WAS A

SELF-PROCLAIMED BEAST WHO

TERRORIZED ANYONE WHO HAD

ANYTHING HE WANTED, UNTIL

THE DAY HE TOOK FOUR

BULLETS, PLUS A FIFTH

STRAIGHT THROUGH HIS HEAD.

I CHECKED THE DOORKNOB,

AND THE DOOR WAS OPEN.

SO AS I COME IN THE HOUSE,

BEFORE I CAN EVEN UP MY GUN

ALL OF THE WAY, HE HAD HIS

GUN OPENED.

AND WE GOT INTO A SHOOTOUT.

Reporter: AS A HARDENED

CRIMINAL, RODERICK DANIELS

KNEW NE NO BOUNDARIES, AND

IT NEARLY COST HIM HIS

LIFE.

AS A CHILD, HE NEVER

CONSIDERED A LIFE OF CRIME.

IN FACT, AS A PASTOR'S SON,

HE CONSIDERED SOMETHING MUCH

DIFFERENT.

I REALLY ADMIRED MY DAD.

I CAN REMEMBER DOING MY

ALTER CALLS, AND EVERY

SUNDAY I WOULD COME UP JUST

BECAUSE THAT WAS MY DAD.

Reporter: BUT HIS DAD'S

OBLIGATIONS LEFT LITTLE TIME

FOR HIS SON.

AND RODERICK BEGAN TO SEE

GOD IN THE SAME LIGHT.

MY UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT

GOD WAU A LITTLE ESCHEW

BECAUSE IT FELT LIKE I COULD

NEVER RECEIVE THE APPROVAL

OF MY DAD.

SO IT FELT LIKES GOD NEVER

REALLY RECEIVED ME.

Reporter: SO HE FOUND

ACCEPTANCE ON THE STREETS.

I STARTED DOING STUFF I

THOUGHT I NEEDED TO GET THE

APPROVAL OF PEOPLE AROUND ME

OF THAT AGE.

BREAKING INTO LOCKERS AND

STEALING FROM STORES.

Reporter: THE DEEPER HE

GOT INTO CRIME, THE BOLDER

AND MORE VIOLENT HE BECAME.

I WAS A BEAST.

I WAS A TAKER.

IF YOU HAD IT AND I WANTED

IT, IT WAS MINE.

IT DIDN'T MATTER WHO YOU

WERE.

I WOULD STICK A GUN IN YOUR

FACE AND TAKE IT.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, RODERICK HAD SHORT

STINTS IN PRISON FOR WEAPONS

AND DRUG TRAFFICKING.

EVENTUALLY HE MARRIED NICOLE

AND THEY STARTED A FAMILY.

THERE WAS NOTHING THAT

SHE WOULDN'T DO FOR ME.

IF I NEEDED HER TO COME PICK

UP A GUN, TO TAKE SOME MONEY

HERE.

I WOULD NEVER GET HER

INVOLVED, BUT SHE WOULD KNOW

WHAT WAS GOING ON.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY HE

FOUND SOMETHING MORE

PROFITABLE THAN SELLING

DOPE: HE RIPPED OFF OTHER

DRUG DEALERS.

WE WOULD ACTUALLY FOLLOW

THEM HOME AND HIDE IN THE

GARAGE UNTIL THEY PULLED

UP.

AND TIE THEM UP AND MAKE

THEM GET THE DRUGS OR THE

MONEY.

Reporter: BUT ONE TIME

THE DEALER SAW THEM COMING

AND WAS WAITING.

HE ENDED UP SHOOTING ME

FIVE TIMES.

ONCE IN THE HEAD.

I HAD A BULLET GO RIGHT

THROUGH MY HEAD.

IT WENT THROUGH MY INNER

EAR.

Reporter: RODERICK MADE

IT OUT OF THE HOUSE AND

COLLAPSED ON THE STREET.

I WAS SPITTING UP BLOOD.

I HAD THIS OVERWHELMING

FEELING OF PEACE COME OVER

ME.

I LAID THERE AND STARTED

PRAYING TO GOD HE WOULD TAKE

CARE OF MY FAMILY.

BECAUSE I PRETTY MUCH KNEW

IT WAS OVER.

Reporter: NO VITAL

ORGANS WERE HIT, AND HIS

ACCCOMPLICE GOT HIM TO THE

HOSPITAL.

AFTER HIS RECOVERY, HE TRIED

TO GET STRAIGHT.

BUT HE COULDN'T AND STARTED

USING HEROIN.

AND HE STARTED HOLDING UP

STORES.

REALLY INSIDE I WANTED TO

GET CAUGHT.

I WANTED THIS TO END.

Reporter: TWICE HE WAS

CAUGHT ON CAMERA AND POLICE

WERE STAKED OUT AT THEIR

HOUSE.

AND I CAN REMEMBER

TELLING MY WIFE I WAS GOING

TO ROB A WIFE.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, NO, DON'T

LEAVE.

SHE WAS, LIKE, JUST STAY.

AND I EVENTUALLY PULLED OUT

AND SURE ENOUGH, HERE COMES

A CAR.

AND MY WIFE SAID, YOU SEE

THE POLICE BEHIND YOU?

AND I SAID, YEAH, IT'S

OVER.

Reporter: HE FACED

SERIOUS PRISON TIME.

WHILE IN CUSTODY, HE

REALIZED TO CHANGE HIS LIFE,

HE NEEDED HELP.

I PRAYED AND ASKED GOD TO

HELP ME.

I SAID, GOD, I CAN'T DO IT.

I NEED YOU.

I REALLY NEED YOU.

THAT'S WHEN AN OVERWHELMING

SENSE OF GRIEF HIT ME REAL

HARD.

I REALLY WANTED TO CHANGE.

Reporter: RODERICK WAS

SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS.

WHILE INSIDE, HE PRAYED AND

STUDIED THE BIBLE EVERY

DAY.

THE WORD OF GOD IS WAS

EVENTUALLY INFILTRATED MY

LIFE.

AND IT MADE SENSE TO ME

BECAUSE I COULD READ IT AND

THE WORDS CAME ALIVE.

AND CHRIST AND THE HOLY

SPIRIT JUST, YOU KNOW,

ACCEPTED ME AND CAME INTO MY

LIFE AND INFILTRATED MY

LOCAL, LIVE NEWS COVERAGE.

LIFE.

I FELT I HAD A PURPOSE.

Reporter: ON THE

OUTSIDE, NICOLE ALSO BECAME

A CHRISTIAN.

AND AFTER HE WAS RELEASED,

THEY WERE REUNITED.

THAT'S MY QUEEN.

I KNOW SHE LOVES THE LORD.

IF I'M LACKING, SHE WILL

FILL IN.

AND IF SHE IS LACKING, I CAN

FILL IN.

Reporter: TODAY

RODERICK IS FULFILLING THIS

DREAM, BEING A MAN LIKE HIS

FATHER, SHARING THE WORD OF

GOD WITH OTHER PEOPLE.

GOD HAD A PLAN FOR MY

LIFE.

I UNDERSTAND THAT'S THE

REASON WHY I LIVED.

I LIVED BECAUSE CHRIST HAS

WORK FOR ME TO DO.

HE HAS SOULS HE WANTS TO WIN

OUT THERE IN THE STREETS.

I KNOW IF I SEEK GOD, SEEK

HIS FACE EVERY DAY, AND PUT

HIM FIRST, AND SERVE HIM,

I'M ON THE RIGHT PATH.

Pat: TO SERVE THE

LORD.

TO BE A SERVANT OF GOD.

THERE IS NO HIGHER CALLING

THAN TO BE A MINISTER OF GOD

ALMIGHTY, TO BELONG TO HIM.

YOU CAN BE A LAWYER.

YOU CAN BE A BUSINESSMAN.

YOU CAN BE A TRUCK DRIVER.

YOU CAN BE A CONSTRUCTION

WORKER.

YOU CAN BE AN ARCTIC, YOU

CAN BE ANY NUMBER OF THINGS

AND STILL BE A SERVANT OF

GOD.

WHAT DID RODERICK REALLY

WANT?

WHAT HE WANTED WAS SOMEBODY

TO ACCEPT HIM AND LOVE HIM

AND PAY ATTENTION TO HIM.

GOD LOOKS UPON YOU AND SAYS,

I LOVE YOU.

I KNOW YOU BY NAME.

I'VE CALLED YOU BYNAME.

I KNOW WHO YOUARE.

OUT OF ALL OFBILLIONS

OF PEOPLE ON THIS EARTH, I

KNOW YOU.

I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE.

MUCH MORE MONEY SOMEBODY

MAKES OVER LIFE IF THEY HAVE

A COLLEGE DEGREE VERSES A

HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, AND HOW

MUCH MORE THEY GET WITH A

HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA IF THEY

DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT IT WILL
