Wendy: HE SURVIVED

EBOLA.

WHY HIS DOCTOR IS RETURNING

TO THE HOTBED OF THE DEADLY

VIRUS.

> THEN...GET READY FOR

AMERICA'S BIG GAME IN THE

VALLEY OF THE SUN, AND GET A

SIDE OF THE SUPER BOWL YOU

WON'T SEE ANYWHERE ELSE.

> PLUS...MEET THE SON OF A

BOXING LEGEND WHO IS A

CHAMPION IN HIS OWN RIGHT,

GEORGE FOREMAN THE THIRD, ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THERE IS SOME QUESTION: ARE

THEY TERRORISTS?

WELL, I SAY THEY ARE, AND IT

IS PAYBACK TIME FOR A GROUP

KNOWN AS HEZBOLLAH.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, THE

PRIME MINISTER OF ISRAEL,

HAS GIVEN THEM A WARNING, IT

WILL PAY, QUOTE,"THE FULL

PRICE FOR A DEADLY ATTACK

THAT KILLED TWO ISRAELI

SOLDIERS ON THE BORDER."

AND NOW ISRAEL'S FORCES ARE

ON HIGH ALERT.

Wendy: THE ATTACK HAS

LEFT NORTHERN ISRAEL ON

EDGE, AND THE ARMY WARNS IT

MIGHT STRIKE BACK.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US THE

STORY.

Reporter: AFTER THE

ATTACK, THE I.D.F. PUT ITS

FORCES ON HIGH ALERT,

RESPONDED WITH ARTILLERY

BOMBARD.

BOMBARD.

AND LAUNCHED AT LEAST 50

AIRSTRIKES.

FROM HERE ON IN, IT IS A

CLOSED MILITARY ZONE.

IT IS THE DEADLIEST ATTACK

BY HEZBOLLAH AGAINST ISRAEL

IN MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS,

SINCE THE 2006 SECOND

LEBANON WAR.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU ACCUSED

IRAN OF BEING BEHIND THE

ATTACK.

WHOEVER IS BEHIND THIS

ATTACK WILL PAY THE FULL

PRICE.

FOR SOME TIME, VIA

HEZBOLLAH, HAS BEEN TRYING

TO ESTABLISH AN ADDITIONAL

TERRORIST FRONT AGAINST US

FROM THE GOLAN HEIGHTS.

WE ARE TAKING STRONG AND

RESPONSIBLE ACTION AGAINST

THIS ATTEMPT.

Reporter: THE ATTACK

FOLLOWS A STRIKE BY ISRAEL

LAST WEEK THAT KILLED

SEVERAL HEZBOLLAH SOLDIERS

INSIDE SYRIA NEAR THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS.

IT REVEALS IRAN HAS REGIONAL

AMBITIONS AND WANTS TO

SAFEGUARD ITS NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE A

FRONT IN THE GOLAN TO SAY TO

ISRAEL, IF YOU WILL ATTACK

OUR NUCLEAR SYSTEM, SO WE

CAN ACCESS LEBANON THROUGH

SYRIA, WITH THOUSANDS OF

MISSILES WITH HEZBOLLAH AND

THROUGH SYRIA.

Reporter: THE BORDER

REMAINS A VERY FRAGILE

SITUATION.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, ON

THE ISRAELI-LEBANESE

BORDER.

Pat: THANKS, CHRIS.

I WAS SPEAKING TO THE FORMER

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER WHO

SAID IF WE CAN FIND THE HEAD

OF HEZBOLLAH, WE'LL KILL

HIM.

WELL, I THINK HE SURFACED,

AND THEY HAVEN'T HAD A

CHANCE TO KILL HIM.

AND I MISSPOKE, THE WHITE

HOUSE IS SAYING THEY WON'T

CALL THE TALIBAN TERRORISTS

THERE.

BUT HEZBOLLAH IS STILL

MARKED DOWN AS A TERRORIST

GROUP.

THEY HAVE GOT DOMINANT

FORCES IN LEBANON, AND

ISRAEL IS SOMEWHAT

SURROUNDED.

THEY'VE GOT SYRIA AND

LEBANON AND THESE OTHER

NATIONS AROUND THEM, BUT

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE

PUSHED AROUND.

AND WE WE APPRECIATE

APPRECIATE IT.

> THE OTHER GROUP, ARE

THEY WINNING OR LOSING?

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE

WINNING SOME.

AND THE BRUTAL TERRORISTS

FROM ISIS ARE TRYING TO MAKE

A DEAL FOR THE RELEASE OF A

SUICIDE BOMBER, A WOMAN WHO

HAS ACCOUNTED FOR HUNDREDS

AND HUNDREDS OF DEATHS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE'S JOHN.

John: THAT'S RIGHT, A

NEW DEADLINE FROM ISIS IN

EXCHANGE FOR A PROPOSED

PRISONER SWAP.

THE TERROR GROUP IS

DEMANDING THE RELEASE OF A

FEMALE SUICIDE BOMBER IN

EXCHANGE FOR A PILOT AND A

JOURNALIST FROM JAPAN.

BUT THE WHITE HOUSE IS

VOICING STRONG OBJECTIONS.

Reporter: THE LIVES OF

KENJI GOTO AND A JORDANIAN

PERSON REMAIN IN DEMAND.

A NEW RELEASE BY ISIS WARNS

THAT THE PRISONER SWAP MUST

HAPPEN BY SUNSET ON THURSDAY

OR THE JORDANIAN PILOT WILL

BE KILLED.

THE VIDEO SHOWS GOTO

SHACKLED BY HOLDING A PHOT

TO.

PHOTO.

I ONLY HAVE 24 HOURS LEFT

TO LIVE AND THE PILOT HAS

LESS.

Reporter: THE VIDEO

SAYS THE JORDANIANS MUST

RELEASE A FEMALE TERRORIST.

SHE WAS SENTENCED TO DEATH

FOR HER INVOLVEMENT IN A

DEADLY TERRORIST ATTACK IN

2005.

THE MOTHER OF THE JAPANESE

HOSTAGE MADE AN EMOTIONAL

APPEAL TO LEADERS, ASKING

THEM TO PLEASE SAVE KENJI'S

LIFE.

JORDAN IS SAID TO BE IN

DIRECT TALKS WITH ISIS, AND

HAVE REQUESTED ASSURANCES

THAT THE 26-YEAR-OLD PILOT

WAS SAVED.

SHINZO SAYS JAPAN WOULD DO

EVERYTHING IT COULD TO

SECURE THE RELEASE OF GOTO.

ISIS HAD PREVIOUSLY DEMANDED

CASH RANSOM FOR ALL FOREIGN

HOSTAGES SINCE 2012, BUT THE

WHITE HOUSE IS AGAINST SUCH

ACTION.

THIS IS A DIPLOMATIC

VICTORY FOR ISIS.

WHAT ISIS WANTS IS FOR

PEOPLE TO TREAT THEM LIKE A

STATE.

IT IS IN JORDAN'S INTEREST

NOT TO TREAT THEM LIKE A

STATE.

Reporter: UNTIL NOW,

ISIS HAS BEEN WINNING THE

PROPAGANDA FOR NEW

RECRUITS.

STOPPING THAT IS A CRITICAL

PROBLEM FACING WASHINGTON

AND THE WEST.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS,

CHARLENE.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: THE PRESIDENT HAS

BEEN VERY RELUCTANT TO

MENTION ANYTHING ISLAMIC.

THE EUROPEANS ARE NAMING IT,

IT IS ISLAMIC.

AND WE'RE RELUCTANT IN OUR

DIPLOMATIC CIRCLES IN THE

UNITED STATES TO CALL A

SPADE A SPADE.

WE HAVE SOMETHING THAT HAS

BEEN VERY POPULAR, WITH

PROBABLY A THIRD OF A

MILLION COPIES HAVE GOTTEN

OUT SO FAR.

I WANT TO PUT IT IN YOUR

HAND.

IT IS CALLED "ISLAM, A

RELIGION OF WAR OR PEACE?"

IT SHOWS DIRECTLY QUOTES

FROM THE QURAN.

WHAT DOES IT SAY?

QUOTES FROM THE HADIF, WHAT

DOES IT SAY?

WHAT ARE THE GOALS AND AIMS

OF THE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS?

WHAT IS THE ISLAM THAT WAS

FOUNDED BY MUHAMMAD -- WHAT

DID HE TELL HIS PEOPLE TO

DO?

IT IS IN HERE.

IT IS VERY ATTRACTIVE, AND

IT'S GOT PICTURES AND

EVERYTHING IN HERE.

WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

YOU CAN CALL IN.

I THINK YOU NEED TO HAVE

IT.

John: HERE AT HOME,

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S NOMINEE TO

REPLACE ERIC HOLDER IS

SUPPORTING THE PRESIDENT'S

CONTROVERSIAL ACTION ON

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

REPUBLICAN SENATORS ASKED

LORETTA LYNCH NUMEROUS

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE

PRESIDENT'S MOVE TO SHELTER

MILLIONS OF IMMIGRANTS FROM

DEPORTATION.

SHE SAYS SHE HAS STUDIED

LEGAL OPINIONS AND SUPPORTED

THE ACTION, AND SHE DIDN'T

SEE ANY REASON TO DOUBT

THEM.

SENATORS ALSO ASKED HER

ABOUT OTHER CONTROVERSIES

INVOLVING THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT, INCLUDING THE

INVESTIGATION OF THE I.R.S.

TEA PARTY SCANDAL.

> ARIZONA IS WORKING TO

SHUT DOWN SEX TRAFFICKING

CENTERED AROUND THE SUPER

BOWL.

FOR MONTHS, THE STATE HAS

BEEN FOCUSED ON TRAINING LAW

ENFORCEMENT AND PROMOTING

PUBLIC AWARENESS.

AS EFREM GRAHAM REPORTS,

THOSE EFFORTS ARE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

Efrem: AUTHORITIES KNOW

HIGH-PROFILE SUPPORTING

EVENTS DRAW NOT ONLY LARGE

CROWDS, BUT LARGE NUMBERS OF

TRAFFICKERS.

THIS YEAR THE STATE

TACKLED THE PROBLEM HEAD ON

WITH THE PUBLIC AWARENESS

CAMPAIGN "ARIZONA IS NOT

BUYING."

AND HELPING TO GET THE

MESSAGE OUT, THE PHOENIX

SUNS AND CURT WARNER.

WE WANT THE WORLD TO

KNOW, WE'RE NOT BUYING IT.

ARIZONA IS NOT BUYING

IT.

Efrem: SHE CREDITS

INCREASED LAW ENFORCEMENT

FOR DETERING TRAFFICKERS AT

LAST YEAR'S SUPER BOWL IN

NEW JERSEY.

I THINK IF YOU'RE A

TRAFFICKER OR A PIMP IN THIS

DAY AND AGE, AND YOU BRING A

PERSON HERE TO BE

TRAFFICKED, YOU ARE ASLEEP

AT THE WHEEL.

THE SUPER BOWL HAS REALLY

SENT A MESSAGE, AND THE NFL

HAS SENT A MESSAGE, OUR

COMMUNITY HAS SENT A

MESSAGE, THAT SEX

TRAFFICKING WILL NOT BE

TOLERATED HERE.

Efrem: ACTIVIST GROUPS,

LIKE "SHARED HOPE" SET UP

STATION AND COLLABORATE WITH

ORGANIZATIONS.

ONE GROUP DISTRIBUTED 24,000

BARS OF SOAP WITH

TRAFFICKING HOTLINE

NUMBERS.

ONE WAY A POTENTIAL VICTIM

COULD CALL FOR HELP.

KATHLEEN WYNN SEES A CHANGE

IN THE PUBLIC'S

UNDERSTANDING OF THE ISSUE.

FOUR YEARS AGO, YOU WOULD

HAVE BEEN HARD-PRESSED IN

ARIZONA TO FIND SOMEBODY

THAT HAD HEARD ABOUT

TRAFFICKING OR EVEN BELIEVED

THAT IT WAS HAPPENING HERE.

Efrem: NOW TRAFFICKERS

AND BUYERS FACE TOUGHER

PENALTIES IN ARIZONA, THANKS

TO NEW LEGISLATION, AND A

PUBLIC THAT IS AWARE AND

OPPOSED TO THE SALE OF

CHILDREN.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

John: THE SUPER BOWL IS

BIG BUSINESS, ESPECIALLY FOR

AVERTISERS.

THIS YEAR A 30-SECOND

COMMERCIAL SPOT COSTS ABOUT

$4.5 MILLION.

NBC SAYS ALL OF THE AD TIME

FOR COMMERCIALS ARE FINALLY

SOLD OUT, EVEN THOUGH A

NETWORK EX SAYS IT WAS A

CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENT.

NBC HAS ALSO SOLD OUT THE

POST-GAME SHOW AND DIGITAL

STREAM AS WELL.

PAT, THAT'S A BARGAIN

BASEMENT PRICE,

$4.5 MILLION.

Pat: YOU WANT TO GET AT

LEAST A HALF DOZEN OF THEM.

THAT'S INCREDIBLE.

I MENTIONED YESTERDAY, ONE

BUSINESS, IT'S A SMALLER

BUSINESS, BUT THEY TOOK

THEIR ENTIRE ANNUAL

ADVERTISING BUDGET AND THEY

BOUGHT ONE 30-SECOND SPOT.

I REALLY THINK THAT IS NOT

SMART.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THEY'RE

DOING IT AND I'M NOT.

BUT $4.5 MILLION FOR 30

SECONDS.

ALL A GUY HAS GOT TO GO IS

TURN THE WATER ON FOR A CUP

OF COFFEE, AND HE HAS MISSED

THE 30 SECONDS.

YOU GO TO THE BATHROOM OR

YOUR MUNCHING SOME

CRUNCHIES, AND THE 30

SECONDS IS GONE.

Wendy: BUT A LOT OF

PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY SOME

WOMEN, WATCH THE SUPER BOWL

JUST FOR THE COMMERCIALS.

Pat: WELL, THEY CAN

KNOCK THEMSELVES OUT.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO PAY THAT

MUCH MONEY FOR THE AIR TIME,

YOU BETTER HAVE YOUR

CREATIVE JUICES.

NOW, THE ARGUMENT IS THE

LITTLE LOST PUPPY, THE GO

DADDY -- THEY WITHDREW THEIR

AD BECAUSE IT WASN'T QUITE

TENDER ENOUGH, AND BUDWEISER

HAS THE MONSTROUS HORSES AND

THE LITTLE DOG AND IT IS

KIND OF SWEET.

BUT SOMEBODY SAID, HOW IN

THE WORLD DOES THAT MAKE YOU

WANT TO BUY BUDWEISER.

Wendy: IF WE'RE NOT

CAREFUL, IT WILL BECOME MORE

ABOUT THE COMMERCIALS THAN

THE GAME.

Pat: IT REALLY IS.

WE HAD SOME PEOPLE HERE WHO

HAD THAT BIG DOG, THAT GREAT

DANE THAT HAD THE BAG OR

DORITOS --

Wendy: THAT WAS A GOOD

ONE.

Pat: IT WAS A VERY CUTE

THING.

AND IT WAS THE WINNER, I

THINK, OF THE ADVERTISING

AMATEURS.

IT WAS VERY INTERESTING.

BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO BE WATCHING.

WELL OVER 100 MILLION

PEOPLE.

IT IS THE BIGGEST SPORTING

EVENT -- MAYBE THE WORLD CUP

IS BIGGER, BUT AS FAR AS THE

UNITED STATES IT IS THE

BIGGEST.

John: VIEWERS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY AND AROUND THE

WORLD WILL NO DOUBT BE

EATING WHILE WATCHING THE

GAME, AND MUCH OF WHAT

PEOPLE WILL BE PUTTING IN

THEIR MOUTHS WON'T BE

PARTICULARLY GOOD FOR THEM.

CBN'S ANGELA ZATAPEC COOKED

UP A HEALTHY RECIPE YOU

DON'T WANT TO MISS.

Reporter: YOU SEE YOUR

FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT

MAYBE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IN

FOREVER.

YOU REALLY WANT TO MINIMIZE

YOUR TIME IN THE KITCHEN.

SO I'M BRINGING YOU A RECIPE

THAT ONLY TAKES 10 MINUTES

AND MEETS A LOT OF DIETARY

NEEDS FOR THOSE TRYING TO

STICK TO THEIR RESOLUTION.

IT IS VEGAN, PALEO, AND

GLUTEN-FREE.

IT ONLY TAKES 10 MINUTES,

AND THESE ARE ALL OF THE

INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED.

TWO AVOCADOS, A RED ONION,

ONE LIME, CILANTRO, ONE

MANGO, AND THE TWIST, SIR

CIR CIRACHO.

REAL THE, HONESTLY, IF YOU

LIKE THINGS REALLY SPICY OR

JUST A LITTLE SPICY -- I

LIKE THINGS VERY SPICY.

CHRIS IS FROM BOSTON.

TOM BRADY IS FROM BOSTON.

GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES,

A DEFLATED FOOTBALL.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO WIN

OVER YOUR FRIENDS ON GAME

DAY, BRING YOUR GUACAMOLI

AND A DEFLATED FOOTBALL.

I'M GOING TO TRY IT.

I'M GOING TO TRY IT,

TOO.

GO SEAHAWKS.

H'MMM, VERY GOOD.

THIS IS ZESTY, BUT GOOD.

Reporter: SO GOOD.

YOU'RE IMPRESSIVE.

Reporter: YOU KNOW

WHAT, FOR MY FAMILY, WHO ARE

NOT DOMESTIC, THEY'RE

WRONG.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY OUR

GAME-DAY GUACAMOLE.

John: AND YOU CAN GET

THAT RECIPE ON

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT, ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE

THAT ZESTY GUACAMOLE A TRY?

Pat: I WASN'T PLANNING

ON IT.

Wendy: I BOUGHT ALL OF

THOSE INGREDIENTS.

IT IS FANTASTIC.

IT'S FUN.

SO SEAHAWKS -- YOU'RE GOING

WITH THE SEAHAWKS?

Pat: WELL, I DON'T WANT

TO INSULT BOSTON, BUT I JUST

FEEL THAT THE COACH OF THE

SEAHAWKS -- HE'S GOT TRICKS

UP HIS SLEEVE THAT WE'VE

NEVER EVEN HEARD OF YET, AND

WE'RE GOING TO SEE THEM.

YOU KNOW, I WON THAT THING

ONE YEAR, AS I TOLD YOU, BY

PICKING THE CLOSEST SCORE,

WHOEVER THE WINNER WAS AND

THE SCORE OF THE GAME.

AND I'VE GOT A STATUE IN MY

OFFICE THAT SAYS SO.

I WOULD SAY THE SEAHAWKS

20-14 OVER THE PATRIOTS.

BUT THAT WOULD BE UNUSUAL.

THERE ARE SOME REPORTS THAT

TOM BRADY MAY BE SICK.

IF HE IS UNDER THE WEATHER,

NEW ENGLAND WILL HAVE

TROUBLE BECAUSE HE IS A

TREMENDOUS QUARTERBACK.

I HOPE HE IS WELL, AND I

HOPE THE GUYS FROM SEATTLE

ARE WELL AND IT IS GOING TO

BE A GREAT GAME.

Wendy: HE NEEDS TO TRY

SOME OF THE GUACAMOLI.

THAT COULD HEAL ANYBODY.

Pat: WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: UP NEXT, THE

DOCTOR WHO BARELY SURVIVED

EBOLA IS GOING BACK TO THE

SCENE OF THE OUTBREAK.

IT WOULDN'T MAKE SENSE TO

US, ALMOST, IF HE DIDN'T.

HE IS VERY BRAVE, VERY

HUMBLE, VERY GIVING.

Wendy: AND HEAR WHY HE

IS ALSO UNIQUELY QUALIFIED

TO HELP OTHERS BEAT THE

DEADLY VIRUS, AFTER THIS.

Pat: SOME YEARS AGO I

WAS WORKING -- WE WERE

WORKING IN AFRICA, AND I WAS

THERE SENDING SUPPLIES TO Añ

TOWN CALL KICKWOOD BECAUSE

OF AN OUTBREAK OF A MORFORD

VIRUS THAT CAME CLOSE TO THE

SO-CALLED EBOLA RIVER IN

ZAIRE.

IT WAS HE HEMORRHAGEIC

FEVER.

AND IT WAS IN A BOOK CALLED

"THE HOT ZONE."

WELL, THIS OUTBREAK IS THE

WORST OF EBOLA IN HISTORY.

IT KILLED MORE THAN 8,000

PEOPLE, INCLUDING MORE THAN

500 HEALTH CARE WORKERS.

EVEN THOUGH THE DEADLY

OUTBREAK OF EBOLA IN WEST

AFRICA IS OVER, THOSE

COUNTRIES REMAIN IN

DESPERATE NEED OF MEDICAL

HELP.

THAT'S WHY EBOLA SURVIVOR,

DR. RICK SACRA, HAS GONE

BACK.

HEATHER SELLS SPOKE WITH HIM

BEFORE HE LEFT FOR ANOTHER

JOURNEY TO LIBERIA.

Reporter: JUST FOUR

MONTHS AGO, DOCTOR RICK

SACRA FOUGHT FOR HIS LIFE.

HE CONTRACTED THE DEADLY

EBOLA VIRUS WHILE

VOLUNTEERING IN LIBERIA AT

THE HEIGHT OF THE OUTBREAK.

HE AND HIS WIFE, DEBBIE,

REMEMBER WHAT IT FELT LIKE

AS THE DISEASE TOOK OVER.

I WAS JUST FOCUSING ON

THE LORD.

I'LL TELL YOU, I HUNG ON TO

THE LORD PRAYER LIKE A

DROWNING MAN.

I REALLY PRAYED THAT PRAYER

MANY TIMES EVERY DAY AND

JUST WEPT THROUGH IT MOST OF

THE TIME.

Reporter: DEBBIE

REMEMBERS SHARING SCRIPTURE

VIA SKYPE, AND HOW THEY BOTH

CLUNG TO THE LORD.

YOU JUST LEARN TO TRUST

GOD.

YOU JUST LEARN TO TRUST THAT

HE IS IN CONTROL AND THAT --

AND THAT HE IS REALLY GOOD.

Reporter: THE SACRAS

ARE NO STRANGERS TO WEST

AFRICA.

THEY RAISED THEIR CHILDREN

AND SERVED IN LIBERIA AS

MISSIONARIES FOR 15 YEARS.

RECENTLY FAMILY

CIRCUMSTANCES BROUGHT THEM

HOME TO HOLDEN,

MASSACHUSETTS.

DR. SACRA CONTINUED TO

SERVE, TRAVELLING BACK AND

FORTH SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR.

NOW, JUST A FEW MONTHS AFTER

RECOVERING FROM EBOLA, HE IS

PACKING UP AND HEADING

BACK.

DR. SACRA IS PERHAPS

ESPECIALLY EQUIPPED TO

RETURN TO LIBERIA.

AS AN EBOLA SURVIVOR, HE IS

NOW CONSIDERED IMMUNE TO THE

DEADLY VIRUS THAT HE ONCE

BATTLED.

THEY'VE SEEN SITUATIONS

IN WHICH SOMEBODY WHO HAD

EBOLA AND SURVIVED WAS THEN

EXPOSED AGAIN, AND THEY'VE

NEVER HAD A CASE WHERE

SOMEBODY GOT SICK AGAIN.

SO I THINK THE IDEA OF

IMMUNITY IS PRETTY WELL

ESTABLISHED.

Reporter: HIS PASTOR,

TOM CURTIS, SAYS WATCHING

THE DOCTOR BATTLE EBOLA

HELPED TO GROW THE

CONGREGATION'S FAITH.

IT UNITED AREA CHURCHES

THROUGH PRAYER.

MEMBERS ARE EXCITED HE IS

GOING BACK.

IT WOULDN'T MAKE SENSE TO

US IF HE DIDN'T BECAUSE HE

IS NOT THAT KIND OF PERSON.

HE IS VERY BRAVE.

HE IS VERY HUMBLE.

HE IS VERY GIVING.úÑ

Reporter: SACRA WILL

WORK FOR A MONTH AT A

HOSPITAL IN MONROVIA, THE

LIBERIAN CAPITAL.

HE PLANS ON OTHER TRIPS AS

WELL.

AND WEST AFRICA DESPERATELY

NEEDS HEALTH CARE WORKERS.

FOR YEARS, THE AREA

WITNESSED AN EXODUS OF

HEALTH CARE WORKS.

THAT COUPLED WITH THE DEATHS

OF ALMOST 500 WORKERS DURING

THE EBOLA OUTBREAK HAS

CRIPPLED AN ALREADY FRAGILE

SYSTEM.

HE WILL TRAIN A NEW

GENERATION OF DOCTORS,

EQUIPPED TO PRACTICE AND TO

SHARE THEIR FAITH.

THE SACRAS STAND AMAZED AT

THE PLATFORM THEY'VE

RECEIVED THIS YEAR TO SHARE

THEIRS.

GOD HAS A WAY OF DOING

THAT, TAKING SOMETHING BAD

AND TURNING IT INTO

SOMETHING GOOD.

Reporter: THEIR HOPE

NOW, ZERO EBOLA CASES IN

AFRICA.

A STRONG MEDICAL TEAM,

MEETING BOTH PHYSICAL AND

SPIRITUAL NEEDS, AND TO HELP

REBUILD A REGION STRUGGLING

TO FIND ITS WAY AFTER THE

LOSS OF THOUSANDS.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

I'VE REJOICED WITH DR. SACRA

AND OTHERS THAT THIS THING

SEEMINGLY IS ABATING AND

DYING OUT.

I HOPE IT DOES.

THIS IS A HORRIBLE THING,

THIS EBOLA.

IT CAUSES THE LIQUID

LIQUIDIFCATION OF THE

ORGANS.

THE PATIENT BLEEDS FROM

EVERY ORIFICE OF THEIR

BODY.

ONE DROP OF BLOOD, AND

SOMEBODY CAN GET IT.

THE FACT IT IS CONTAINED AT

8,000 CASES IS A BIG THING.

DR. SACRA IS A HERO, AND I

APPRECIATE HIS WORK.

> WELL, WE'RE GOING TO

TURN FROM EBOLA

TO eFOOTBALL.

Wendy: A GREAT

TRANSITION.

UP NEXT, SEAHAWKS AND

PATRIOTS SPEAK OUT BEFORE

THE BIG GAME.

MY FAVORITE SCRIPTURE

THIS YEAR IS JOHN 3: 30: "HE

MUST INCREASE."

Wendy: STANDARD FOR THE

SUPER BOWL COVERAGE YOU WILL

NOT SEE ANYWHERE ELSE, AFTER

THIS.

Pat: WELCOME BACK,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

YOU HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING

ABOUT THE NEWS IN AMERICA.

WHAT KIND OF A COUNTRY IS IT

THAT SPENDS HOURS AND HOURS

IN MAJOR NEWSCASTS TALKING

ABOUT THE PRESSURE IN A

LITTLE ORB OF PIGSKIN, AND

THEY CALL IT TODAY

"DEFLATEGATE."

THE BALLS IN THE FOOTBALL

GAME BETWEEN THE PATRIOTS

AND THEIR HAPLESS

OPPONENT -- WERE THEY

DEFLATED?

WAS THERE A BALL BOY IN THE

LOCKER ROOM THAT TOOK THE

AIR OUT OF THE BALLS?

WE TOOK ALL OF THIS TIME,

WHILE THE WHORLD I WORLD IS

BLOWING UP AROUND US, WE'RE

CONCERNED ABOUT A FOOTBALL

IN THE PATRIOTS' LOCKER

ROOM.

THANK GOD THAT IS OVER.

NOW IT IS TIME TO GET READY

FOR THE GAME, WHERE I

GUARANTEE YOU THOSE BALLS

WILL HAVE EVERY SINGLE OUNCE

OF PRESSURE THEY'RE SUPPOSED

TO HAVE.

SUPER BOWL 49 HAS THE

MAKINGS OF AN EPIC

CHAMPIONSHIP, WITH A TOP

OFFENSE BATTLING A NUMBER

ONE DEFENSE.

TWO GREAT QUARTERBACKS, TWO

GREAT COAMPS.

COACHES.

SEAN BROWN TALKED WITH THE

SEAHAWKS AND THE PATRIOTS TO

GIVE US SOME PERSPECTIVE OF

WHAT COULD BE THE BIGGEST

GAME OF THEIR CAREERS.

Reporter: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO GLENDALE FOR

CBN'S COVERAGE OF SUPER BOWL

49, WHERE THE SETTLE

SEAHAWKS WILL MAKE AN

ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE THEIR

SECOND NATIONAL

CHAMPIONSHIP.

STANDING IN THE WAY ARE THE

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS, LED BY

ONE THE GREATEST

QUARTERBACKS TO EVER PLAY

THE GAME, TOM BRADY.

PLAYERS FROM BOTH SIDES SAY

THEY FOUND A WAY TO KEEP IT

ALL IN PERSPECTIVE, AND IT

IS ALL ABOUT PUTTING ON THE

FULL ARMOR OF GOD.

IN THE FOURTH QUARTER DURING

THE N.F.C. CHAMPIONSHIP

GAME, WHILE DOWN BY 12, THE

SEAHAWKS HAD THEIR BACKS

AGAINST THE WALL.

THE CHANCE WAS SLIPPING

THROUGH THEIR FINGERS.

THE QUARTERBACK, RUSSELL

WILSON, MANAGED TO LEAD HIS

TEAM TO A MIRACULOUS

VICTORY.

HE SAYS IT IS IN MOMENTS

LIKE THOSE THAT SH HE TRIES

TO ALLOW HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE LORD TO TAKE CENTER

STAGE.

I THINK THE IDEA IS TO

TAKE GOD EVERYWHERE I GO.

WHEN I GO PLAY THE GAME OF

FOOTBALL, IT'S BEING STRONG

AND STANDING FIRM ON WHAT

YOU KNOW.

I'M JUST GLAD THAT I HAVE

GREAT PEOPLE AROUND ME TO

HELP THAT, AND TO HELP KEEP

THAT IN MY MIND AND KEEP

THAT GOING.

MY FAVORITE SCRIPTURE HAS

BEEN JOHN 3: 30: "HE MUST

DECREASE, BUT I MUST

INCREASE."

PEOPLE WANT TO GIVE YOU

EXTRA ATTENTION.

IT IS NOT ABOUT ME.

IT IS NOT ABOUT JUST THE

TEAM.

IT IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT

YOU HAVE AROUND YOU, THE

PEOPLE YOU CAN RESPECT AND

HOW YOU CAN CHANGE THE

WORLD.

THAT'S WHAT I'VE REALLY,

REALLY HAVE NOTICED, AND

TRIED TO REALLY FOCUS ON IN

MY LIFE, ESPECIALLY THIS

PAST YEAR.

SO I'M TRULY GRATEFUL.

Reporter: HE IS

THRILLED TO BE BACK IN THE

SUPER BOWL.

HE SAYS WHILE IT IS

EXCITING, HE UNDERSTANDS

WHILE WINNING A CHAMPIONSHIP

IS ONLY TEMPORARY, HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST IS

FAR MORE VALUABLE.

THE KIND OF LOVE THAT

JESUS CAN GIVE YOU, IS WAY

BETTER THAN ANYTHING YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR IN THE WORLD.

HAVING BEEN THERE MYSELF,

AND BEEN IN THE WORLD AND

LIVED IN SIN, I CAN SAY

WITHOUT A DOUBT, WITHOUT

WHAT JESUS HAD DONE IN MY

LIFE, I

WOULDN'T BE WHERE I

AM TODAY.

THIS IS FOR A SHORT SEASON.

AND WE'RE CALLED TO MAKE THE

NAME OF JESUS CHRIST

FAMOUS.

AND THE LORD USES WHOEVER HE

WANTS TO CHOOSE TO GET THAT

DONE.

IT'S JUST A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO GET THE

GOSPEL OUT

THERE.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN A

CONSTANT BATTLE FOR RUSSELL

BECAUSE HE HAS TO BLOCK TO

PROTECT HIS QUARTERBACK, HE

IS TESTED EVERY WEEK.

HE SAYS HE IS NOT JUST A

SOLDIER ON THE FOOTBALL

FIELD, BUT ALSO IN LIFE.

WELL, YOU KNOW, THEY TALK

ABOUT PUTTING ON THE FULL

ARMOR RIGHT BEFORE HE TALKS

ABOUT US BEING IN A FIGHT.

I THINK IN THAT YOU'VE GOT

TO REALIZE YOUR A SOLDIER,

YOU'RE A SOLDIER FOR

CHRIST.

PART OF BEING THAT SOLDIER

FOR CHRIST, GOD WANTS

TERRITORY FOR YOU TO GO AND

TAKE OVER.

HE IS PUTTING PEOPLE IN

CERTAIN PLACES, WITH THEIR

TALENTS, WITH THEIR GIFTS,

TO REALLY BE FAITHFUL.

TO BE FAITHFUL WITH WHAT GOD

HAS GIVEN AND WHAT HE HAS

PRIVILEGED YOU WITH.

WITHIN THAT BATTLE, WE HAVE

A PEACE OF KNOWING THAT GOD

HAS ALREADY WON.

AND WE'VE BEEN EQUIPPED FOR

EVERY DAY, FOR EVERY MOMENT,

TO BE THE BEST WE CAN BE.

Reporter: THE NEW

ENGLAND PATRIOTS ARE

CERTAINLY NO STRANGERS TO

THE POST-SEASON.

LIKE MANY OF HIS TEAMMATES,

HE SAYS HE IS STAYING

FOCUSED ON THE TASK AT HAND,

WHILE ALSO REMEMBERING WHAT

MATTERS MOST.

I SAY THIS ALL OF THE

TIME, BUT YOUR VERTICAL

RELATIONSHIPS AFFECT YOUR

HORIZONTAL RELATIONS.

AND TO BE THE GREATEST

CHAMPION, YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW

THE GREATEST CHAMPION, WHO

IS JESUS CHRIST.

EVERYTHING HERE IS

AWESOME, BUT I KNOW

EVERYTHING HERE GIVES US AN

OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE GOD'S

GLORY BECAUSE HE CREATED

EVERY SINGLE THING HERE AND

EVERYTHING THAT WE'RE

DOING.

I WAS RAISED IN A

CHURCH.

MY FATHER IS A PASTOR.

HE HAS BEEN A MINISTER SINCE

THE AGE OF 19.

I GREW UP IN THE CHURCH, AND

JUST PUTTING GOD FIRST AND

BELIEVING IN GOD, AND I

HONESTLY FEEL LIKE HE IS THE

REASON FOR A LOT OF MY

SUCCESS.

Reporter: THIS IS

DURAN'S FIRST SUPER BOWL.

ALTHOUGH HE IS EXCITED, HE

IS NOT LETTING IT GET TO HIS

HEAD AND FO FORGETTING WHAT

IS IMPORTANT.

JESUS IS MY ROCK.

I KNOW I COULDN'T BE HERE

WITHOUT HIM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TRY TO

HAVE THAT BALANCE, THAT

BALANCE BETWEEN THAT

CHRISTIAN LIFE AND WHERE YOU

WANT TO BE AS AN ATHLETE.

AND IT CAN BE HARD.

AND A LOT OF US STRUGGLE

WITH IT.

BUT ALL WE KNOW IS THAT

JESUS LOVES US FOR WHO WE

ARE, AND HE IS GOING TO

CONTINUE WORK THROUGH US.

Reporter: MATTHEW

SLATER IS IN HIS SEVENTH

SEASON IN THE NFL.

HE IS ONE OF THE MOST

RESPECTED PLAYERS ON THE

TEAM.

HE SAYS A LOT OF IT HAS TO

DO WITH ALLOWING THE LORD

ORDER HIM.

MY FAITH HAS GIVEN ME

PURPOSE AND DIRECTION.

LIFE IS SO CHALLENGING, TO

NAVIGATE DIFFERENT HIGHS AND

LOWS, ESPECIALLY BEING IN

THIS PROFESSION, BUT I THINK

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

HAS REALLY KEPT ME FOCUSED

ON WHAT IS IMPORTANT.

I THINK WHEN YOU LOOK AT A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS, YOU

UNDERSTAND YOU'RE LIVING FOR

ETERNITY.

AND IF YOU CAN'T GET EXCITED

ABOUT THAT, I DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOU CAN GET EXCITED

ABOUT.

AS I NAVIGATE LIFE WITH

GOD'S HELP, IT JUST GIVES ME

A SENSE OF COMFORT KNOWING

THAT I'M GOING TO MAKE

MISTAKES, THERE IS GOING TO

BE HIGHS AND LOWS, BUT AT

THE END OF THE DAY, I'M

COVERED IN GRACE AND MERCY.

AND I'VE GOT SOMETHING TO

LOOK FORWARD TO.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THESE

ARE THE GREATEST ATHLETES IN

THE BIGGEST SPORT IN OUR

NATION, PROFESSIONAL

FOOTBALL.

THEY'RE AT THE TOP.

THEY'RE GOING TO THE SUPER

BOWL.

AND WHO KNOWS HOW BIG THE

AUDIENCE WILL BE.

THEY TALK ABOUT 100 MILLION,

120 MILLION, AND IT MAY BE

BIGGER.

BUT IT IS A BIG STAGE AND

THEY'RE PLAYING ON IT.

BUT WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO THEM

IS THEIR FAITH IN JESUS

CHRIST.

AND NOT ALL PROFESSIONAL

FOOTBALL PLAYERS, TO SAY THE

LEAST, ARE BORN-AGAIN

CHRISTIANS, BUT MANY OF

THEIR STARS ARE.

THE QUARTERBACK OF THE

SEAHAWKS IS A MAN WHO LOVES

GOD.

SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN

THINKING ABOUT CHRISTIANITY,

AND YOU SAY IT IS

SUPERSTITION OR IT IS FOR

LITTLE OLD LADIES OR LITTLE

KIDS, AND I'M A BIG MAN AND

I DON'T NEED THIS.

WELL, THESE GUYS SAY THEY

DO.

AND JESUS CHRIST IS THE

BIGGEST THING TO THEM.

AND WHAT I WOULD SAY TO YOU,

HE IS THE MAN AROUND WHOM

ALL HISTORY REVOLVES.

WE DATE OUR CALENDARS, B.C.,

A.D., IN THE YEAR OF OUR

LORD OR BEFORE CHRIST.

HE IS THE PIVOTAL POINT OF

ALL HISTORY.

AND IF HE IS THAT IMPORTANT,

I THINK YOU OUGHT TO

CONSIDER HIM.

AND IF YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW

HIM, HE SAYS, LOOK, I'M

STANDING AT THE DOOR OF YOUR

HEART AND I'M KNOCKING.

IF YOU'LL OPEN THE DOOR,

I'LL COME IN AND I'LL IS IT

DOWN AND I'LL EAT WITH YOU,

AND YOU WITH ME, AND WE'LL

BE FRIENDS.

AND I'LL SHOW YOU THE

SECRETS OF LIFE.

IF YOU WANT TO BE BORN

AGAIN, IF YOU WANT TO HAVE

THE ETERNAL LIFE AND BE PART

OF THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM, I

WANT YOU TO DO SOMETHING

WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD

AND PRAY.

PRAY A SIMPLE PRAYER.

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN

VERY SIMPLE WORDS -- SIMPLE,

BUT PROFOUND.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, STOP WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY THESE

WORDS.

DO IT.

LORD, JESUS CHRIST -- THAT'S

RIGHT, LOR -- LORD JESUS, I

KNOW YOU DIED ON THE CROSS,

AND I KNOW YOU DIED FOR ME.

SO RIGHT NOW, LORD, I PUT

ASIDE EVERYTHING, AND I SAY,

LORD, COME INTO MY HEART.

LIVE YOUR LIFE IN ME.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I

WILL LIVE FOR YOU, AND I

WILL SERVE YOU ALL OF THE

DAYS OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, JESUS, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE

COME IN TO MY HEART.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED THAT

PRAYER WITH ME, I WANT YOU

TO CALL.

I WANT TO DO SOMETHING FOR

YOU.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING

TO HELP GET YOU ON YOUR

WAY.

IT'S SOMETHING WE'VE BEEN

OFFERING FOR A LONG TIME.

BUT IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

I HAVE A 73-MINUTE D.V.D. IN

HERE THAT TELLS YOU THE

PRINCIPLES OF WHAT IS NEXT.

IT IS IN A NEW PACKET CALLED

"A NEW DAY."

WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

PICK UP YOUR PHONE, CALL IN,

LORD.

THEY'LL BE HERE FOR YOU ALL

DAY LONG.

THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN ARE

DECISION YOU JUST MADE.

WELL, WE'VE GOT MORE

INTERESTING GIFTS, AND WENDY

ONE.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

MEET THE MAN WHO IS A BOXER,

A BUSINESSMAN, AND AN

EXECUTIVE PRODUCER.

GEORGE FOREMAN THE THIRD

JOINS US LIVE, LATER ON

TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW -- I

THINK BACK TO THOSE YEARS

WHEN I TRIED TO DO IT BY

MYSELF, AND I THINK ABOUT MY

LIFE NOW, AND I THINK ABOUT

MARRIAGE AND SEVEN KIDS, AND

I'M JUST THINKING, THERE IS

NO WAY I COULD FIGURE THIS

OUT AND BE SUCCESSFUL BY

MYSELF.

I KNOW IT IS ALL ABOUT

JESUS, AND THAT'S WHY WE ARE

WHERE WE ARE.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

BOKO HARAM WARRIORS ARE ON

ANOTHER KILLING SPREE IN

NIGERIA.

THEY KILLED AT LEAST 40

VILLAGERS.

SOME SAY BOKO HARAM IS

TERRORIZING THE COUNTRY WITH

ABSOLUTELY NO RESPONSE FROM

GOVERNMENT TROOPS.

THE GROUP IS INCREASING ITS

ATTACKS AS THE COUNTRY

PREPARES FOR ELECTIONS NEXT

MONTH.

> THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF

ALABAMA'S SUPREME COURT SAYS

FEDERAL JUDGES HAVE NO RIGHT

TO REDEFINE HIS STATE'S

MARRIAGE LAWS, SO HE IS

REFUSING TO RECOGNIZE A

FEDERAL RULING THAT STRUCK

DOWN ALABAMA'S

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

BANNING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

THE CHIEF JUSTICE IS URGING

THE PROBATE JUSTICES NOT TO

ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES TO

GAY COUPLES.

HE WROTE A LETTER TO

ALABAMA'S GOVERNOR CALLING

THE RULING JUDICIAL

TYRANNY.

HE SAYS IT IS NON-BINDING

BECAUSE "NOTHING IN THE

UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT

GIVES THEM THE AUTHORITY TO

REDEFINE THE INSTITUTION OF

MARRIAGE."

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE

AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

HE IS ONE OF FIVE BROTHERS,

ALL NAMED AFTER THEIR FAMOUS

FATHER, GEORGE FOREMAN THE

THIRD HAS DISTINGUISHED

HIMSELF IN BOTH BOXING AND

BUSINESS, AND NOW HE IS ALSO

THE AUTHOR OF A NEW BOOK.

Reporter: HE IS A

FITNESS TRAINER, BOXER, AND

SON OF GEORGE FOREMAN.

LIKE HIS FATHER, GEORGE

FOREMAN THE THIRD, HAS

FOUGHT HIS WAY TO VICTORY

INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE

RING.

IN HIS NEW BOOK, "THE

FIGHTING SPIRIT," HE SHARES

12 THINGS HE'S LEARNED TO

HELP YOU BEAT ANYTHING LIFE

THROWS YOUR WAY.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," GEORGE

FOREMAN THE THIRD.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE

HERE.

Wendy: WHAT WAS IT LOOK

GROWING UP IN A HOUSE WITH

ALL OF YOUR BROTHERS, AND

ALL FIVE OF THEM ARE NAMED

GEORGE FOREMAN?

YOU FIGHT FOR FOOD.

NO, IT WAS GREAT HAVING ALL

OF THESE BROTHERS WITH THE

NAME GEORGE, AND MY FATHER

GIVING US A GREAT NAME, BUT

IT WAS ALWAYS A BATTLE OVER

THE FOOD.

Wendy: YOU GUYS ARE ALL

BIG GUYS.

YOU GOT THE NICKNAME MONK,

WHICH HELPED DISTINGUISH YOU

FROM THE OTHER GEORGES.

HOW DID YOU GET THAT?

MY FATHER'S NICKNAME IS

MONKEY.

AND HE EVEN TOLD THE

NEWSPAPERS, WRITE GEORGE

MONKEY FOREMAN.

AND WHEN I WAS BORN HE NAMED

ME MONKEY AS WELL, AND MY

AUNT SAID, NO, NO, WE CAN'T

HAVE TWO MONKEYS.

SO HE NICKNAMED ME MONK, AND

IT STICK.

Wendy: YOU HAD 15 WINS,

AND 14 WERE KNOCKOUTS?

THAT MEANS ONE PUNCH AND HE

IS OUT?

MAYBE NOT THE FIRST ONE.

MAYBE THE THIRD OR FOURTH.

Wendy: WHY DID YOU GET

OUT OF THE RING?

OBVIOUSLY, YOU'RE DESTINED.

Reporter: WHEN I

STARTED BOXING, MY FATHER

BECAME MY TRAINER.

BUT HE INSISTED, IF I'M

GOING TO TRAIN YOU, YOU HAVE

TO TRAIN OTHER PEOPLE.

SO I SPENT MORE TIME

TRAINING OTHERS, AND FOUND

OUT QUICKLY I HAVE A LOVE

FOR THAT, EVEN MORE SO THAN

I HAVE DOING BOXING MYSELF.

YOU HAD TO BEG ME TO LEAVE

THE GYM WHEN I WAS TRAINING

SOMEONE ELSE.

WHEN I WAS TRAINING MYSELF,

I WAS BEGGING TO LEAVE THE

GYM.

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS, I FOUND

MY PASSION.

I LOVE HELPING PEOPLE AND

HOW CAN I TURN THIS INTO A

BUSINESS?

Wendy: YOUR DAD DIDN'T

WANT YOU TO FIGHT?

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Wendy: BUT WHEN YOU

MADE UP YOUR MIND, HE SAID,

OKAY, I'M GOING TO TRAIN

YOU.

RIGHT.

I TRAINED FOR A YEAR BEFORE

HE EVEN CAME INTO THE GYM TO

WATCH.

Wendy: YOUR FACE LOOKS

REALLY GOOD?

THANKS TO HIM.

Wendy: YOU HAVE WRITTEN

AN A AMAZING BOOK CALLED

"THE FIGHTING SPIRIT ISIS

AND YO."

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY WAS THE

GREATEST LESSON THAT YOU

LEARNED FROM YOUR DAD?

I WOULD SAY THE GREATEST

LESSON I LEARNED FROM MY

FATHER IS, YOU KNOW, BE THE

NICEST PERSON YOU CAN BE.

THERE IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE

SOMEONE WHO IS SMARTER THAN

YOU, WHO'S GOT MORE MONEY,

WHO'S GOT MORE FRIENDS,

WHO'S GOT ALL OF THESE

DIFFERENT GUESTS, BUT YOU

CAN BE THE NICEST PERSON IN

THE WORLD.

YOU CAN CLAIM THAT.

YOU CAN GO OUT AND SAY NO

ONE IS GOING TO TREAT HUMAN

BEINGS BETTER THAN I CAN

TREAT THEM.

SO THAT'S THE ONE THING I

TAKE FROM THEM.

I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING

TRYING TO BE THE NICEST

PERSON IN THE WORLD.

AND HE IS NICE TO ME.

HE IS NICER THAN ME.

HE'S GOT ME BEAT.

Wendy: BECAUSE AT THE

END OF OUR LIFE, NOBODY IS

GOING TO CARE ABOUT OUR

TITLES AND CROWNS, BUT WAS

THAT PERSON NICE TO ME.

SO YOU'RE RIGHT ABOUT THAT.

YOU LIVE IN BOSTON AND

YOU'VE GOT A FITNESS

CENTER.

AND THEY'RE CALLED "THE

CLUB."

AND THERE YOU HAVE A MOTTO

"EVERYBODY FIGHTS."

WHAT DO YOU MEAN LIKE THAT?

MY FITNESS CENTER IS MORE

LIKE A COMMUNITY.

AND EVERYBODY FIGHTS.

I'D RATHER GIVE YOU STORIES

TO TELL YOU WHAT THAT

MEANS.

Wendy: SURE.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SEND

US THEIR STORIES.

THERE IS A GUY IN

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA,

HE LOST HIS BUSINESS AND THE

BUSINESS FAILED, AND YET HE

HAS FIVE MONTHS TO FEED.

NOW HE IS A LIMO DRIVER SO

HE DOESN'T HAVE TO LEAVE BE

AND BE AWAY FROM HIS

FAMILY.

BECAUSE HE KNOWS MORE

IMPORTANT THAN MONEY IS

TIME.

HE IS DOING SOMETHING THAT

IS NOT HIS DREAM SO HE CAN

STICK WITH HIS FAMILY.

HE HAD OPTIONS TO GO

SOMEWHERE ELSE AND WORK FOR

100K A YEAR AND SEND THE

MONEY BACK.

THAT'S A FIGHTER.

THERE IS A GUY WHO IS

FIGHTING FOR HIS NEWBORN TO

STAY ALIVE, AND HE IS IN THE

HOSPITAL EVERY DAY.

THAT'S A FIGHTER.

A LADY COLLEEN, WHO GOES TO

MY GYM, DIAGNOSED WITH M.S.,

AND SINCE THEN SHE HAS RUN

THREE BOSTON MARATHONS.

THAT'S WHAT "EVERYBODY

FIGHTS" IS ABOUT.

Wendy: SOMETIMES IT IS

A FIGHT JUST TO GET TO THE

GYM.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING

ABOUT GEORGE?

A FIGHT TO GET OUT OF

BED.

Wendy: YOU WRITE ABOUT

THE 12 FIGHT LAWS.

HOW HAVE THESE PRINCIPLES

HELPED YOU OVERCOME

ADVERSITY?

THESE FIGHT LAWS HAVE

HELPED ME, AND ALSO, MORE

IMPORTANTLY, THEY HAVE

HELPED OTHER.

KIND OF LIKE THE BOOKS ABOUT

MARY, SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

M.S. AT THE AGE OF 57, AND

SHE WAS ON CRUTCHES, AND

COULDN'T MAKE IT TO THE

MAILBOX.

LEARNED HOW TO EAT, AND

WITHIN A YEAR WAS OFF HER

MEDICATION.

AND SIX YEARS LATER WAS

SYMPTOM-FREE.

SO IT IS ABOUT SAYING, WHAT

HAVE I NOTICED THAT WORKS IN

BUSINESS, WORKS IN LIFE, IT

APPLIES TO EVERYBODY AND

EVERYTHING, AND HOW CAN THEY

HELP OTHERS.

Wendy: YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY

IN GOOD SHAPE.

ARE YOU IN GOOD BOXING

SHAPE.

ARE YOU PLANNING TO GET BACK

IN THE RING ANY TIME?

DON'T ASK ME WHAT MY

WEIGHT IS.

I WOULD LOVE TO GET IN THE

RING, BUT I'M SO BUSY

TALKING ABOUT THE BOOK AND

TRAINING PEOPLE, I DON'T

KNOW IF I'LL HAVE TIME.

Wendy: WHAT'S THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING A BOXER

SHOULD UNDERSTAND?

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

A BOXER SHOULD UNDERSTAND IS

IT IS TOUGH AND YOU'RE GOING

TO GET HIT IN THE MOUTH.

Wendy: YOU SAY A GOOD

FIGHTER SHOULD THROW THE

FIRST PUNCH?

ALWAYS.

YOU'RE GOING TO GET LIQUID,

BUT THROW THE FIRST PUNCH.

Wendy: I'M LATELY

ADDICTED TO "ROCKY," BUT

WHEN IT COMES TO THE FIGHT

SCENES, I GO LIKE THIS.

IT IS REALLY HARD TO WATCH.

WHAT DO YOU HOPE PEOPLE WILL

TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR BOOK?

I HOPE PEOPLE WILL TAKE

AWAY THEY CAN DO I IT,

NUMBER ONE.

AND, NUMBER TWO, GET OUT

THERE AND START SHARING YOUR

STORIES.

KNOW IT IS NOT A SIGN OF

WEAKNESS.

IT IS A SIGN OF STRENGTH.

SOMEONE SHARING THEIR STORY

WITH YOU, THAT'S GOING TO

TELL YOU YOU CAN DO IT.

GET OUT AND TELL PEOPLE

ABOUT YOUR STRUGGLES AND HOW

YOU OVERCAME THEM.

DON'T HIDE IT.

DON'T BE ASHAMED.

Wendy: YOU CAN READ ALL

12 OF GEORGE'S FIGHT LAWS IN

HIS BOOK, "THE FIGHTING

SPIRIT."

THANK YOU.

Wendy: UP NEXT, SCOTT

ROSS TALKED TO A MAN WHO

SURVIVED OPEN-HEART

SURGERY.

I CLAIMED THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST AS I WENT UNDER THE

KNIFE.

Reporter: REALLY, WHAT

DOES THAT MEAN?

IT MEANS WE'RE SAVED, BUT

THERE IS SUCH POWER IN THE

BLOOD.

Wendy: PAT EXPLAINS

WHAT THAT POWER IS AND HOW

YOU CAN CLAIM IT IN YOUR OWN

LIFE, WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: HEY, I JUST WANT

TO SAY A WORD ABOUT REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

I HAPPEN TO BE THE C.E.O.

CHANCELLOR, AND I'M JUST

THRILLED AT WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

RIGHT THIS MONTH WE'VE SET A

RECORD, 10,000 INQUIRIES

ABOUT THAT SCHOOL.

PEOPLE REALLY ARE CONCERNED

ABOUT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

THAT CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.

AND THIS IS A HIGH-RATED

SCHOOL.

THE U.S. NEWS AND WORLD

REPORT RANKED THE SCHOOLS,

AND REGENT CAME IN NUMBER 11

IN THE COUNTRY OUT OF ALL OF

THE HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF

SCHOOLS THERE ARE.

NUMBER 11.

THE UNDERGRADUATE MOOT COURT

TEAM WAS THIRD IN THE

NATION.

AND IN TERMS OF OTHER

THINGS, WE HAVE ALL KINDS OF

AWARDS AND THINGS THAT ARE

GIVEN TO OUR STUDENTS, BUT

YOU CAN INTERACT WITH

INSPIRING STUDENTS AND

RECEIVE IMPORTANT FINANCIAL

AID.

SO THERE IS A SPRING PREVIEW

COMING UP FEBRUARY 28th.

IT IS A GORGEOUS CAMPUS, AND

YOU'LL BE TREATED LIKE AN

HONORED GUEST.

THERE ARE MASTER'S, DOCTORAL

AND G.D. STUDENTS.

SO YOU CAN CALL IN AND SAY,

I'M INTERESTED IN THE SPRING

PREVIEW.

IT IS GOING TO BE IN

FEBRUARY.

YOU OUGHT TO MAKE YOUR PLANS

TO BE HERE IF YOU'RE LOOKING

FOR REALLY QUALITY

EDUCATION.

Wendy: AMEN.

WE REALLY DO HAVE A

BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS.

Pat: IT IS GORGEOUS,

AND THE COOL SC SCHOOL IS

JUST BOOMING.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

WELL, RECENTLY, SCOTT ROSS

TOOK TO THE STREETS TO TALK

TO PEOPLE ABOUT MIRACLES AND

HEALING.

HE TALKED TO ONE MAN WHO

TALKED ABOUT THE POWER OF

THE BLOOD.

WE INCLUDED THEIR

CONVERSATION IN OUR NEW

D.V.D. CALLED "BE HEALED."

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: DO YOU

BELIEVE IN GOD?

ABSOLUTELY.

Reporter: WELL, THAT'S

PRETTY STRONG.

HAVE YOU EVER COME THROUGH

ANYTHING PHYSICALLY,

MENTALLY, SPIRITUALLY THAT

NEEDED -- KEY WORD --

HEALING?

WE'LL, I'VE HAD SEVERAL

EXPERIENCES IN MY LIFE.

FOUR YEARS AGO I HAD

OPEN-HEART SURGERY.

Reporter: WOW.

AND I HAD A VALVE

REPAIRED.

AND I CAME THROUGH THAT WITH

GOD'S BLESSING.

Reporter: REALLY?

WAS IT DIFFICULT?

WELL, I'D SAY THIS, WHEN

YOU FACE ETERNITY, YOU'RE

THERE LOOKING AT YOUR LIFE

AND SAYING, AM I OKAY?

AND I HAD SOME REAL

EXPERIENCES, AND BASICALLY I

CLAIMED THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

AS I WENT UNDER THE KNIFE.

Reporter: REALLY?

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

CERTAINLY IT MEANS THAT

WE'RE SAVED, BUT THERE IS

SUCH POWER IN THE BLOOD.

EVEN WHEN I PRAY AT NIGHT,

I'M SAYING, GOD, I CLAIM THE

BLOOD FOR MY FAMILY, FOR MY

FRIENDS.

Reporter: SO THE BLOOD,

IN BIBLICAL TERMS, IS

ATONEMENT, AND THERE IS

HEALING IN THAT?

YES, THERE IS.

THERE IS POWER AND THERE IS

HEALING.

BUT THE POWER REALLY COMES

FROM THE POWER OF LOVE.

BUT IT WOULD SAY IT COMES

JUST A MUCH FROM THE POWER

OF HEALING AS WELL.

Reporter: AND DID IT

CHANGE YOU, GOING THROUGH

THIS PROCESS?

WELL I HAD SOME

EXPERIENCES YEARS AND YEARS

AGO THAT ALLOWED ME TO CLAIM

THIS BLOOD OVER TIME, IN A

CONTINUAL BASIS, AND I THINK

MY LIFE HAS CHANGED FOREVER

BECAUSE OF IT.

Reporter: AND YOU'RE A

BETTER PERSON?

WELL, LET'S SEE...I'D SAY

THIS.

I'D SAY I CLAIM THE BLOOD ON

THAT AS WELL.

Reporter: YOU REALLY

STAND WITH THAT, BLOOD,

BLOOD, BLOOD.

YES.

Reporter: WHY?

BECAUSE I KNOW THE

REALITY OF CHRIST, AND THE

SUFFERING OF CHRIST, AND THE

SACRIFICE OF CHRIST, AND

IT'S EVERYTHING TO ME.

Reporter: SO HEALING IS

SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE

SHOULD EXPECT?

WELL, I'D SAY IF YOU

CLAIM CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR

AND YOU CLAIM THE POWER OF

CHRIST THROUGH HIS BLOOD,

I'D SAY YES.

WE'RE ALL GOING TO BE HEALED

IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

SOME NOT PHYSICALLY, BUT

CERTAINLY ALL OF IT

SPIRITUALLY.

Reporter: YEAH.

RIGHT.

GOOD.

WELL, THANK YOU.

THIS MAN USED THE PHRASE

THAT IT IS CHRISTIANESE

LANGUAGE, BUT HE PLEADED THE

BLOOD OF JESUS OVER HIS

SURGERY, HIS SURGEON, AND

EVERYONE ELSE.

WE HEAR PEOPLE USE THAT TERM

A LOT.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN, "THE

BLOOD OF JESUS" OVER VARIOUS

THINGS?

Pat: THERE IS A LADY

WHO IS THE WIFE OF A VERY,

VERY PROMINENT TELEVISION

EXECUTIVE, AND SHE HEARD ME

TALKING.

ONE NIGHT SHE WAS WATCHING

ABOUT 2:00 IN THE MORNING.

AND I SAID, I WANT YOU TO

STAND ON THE WORD.

SO SHE GOT THE BIBLE, PUT IT

ON THE FLOOR, TOOK HER HIGH

HEELS OFF AND STOOD ON IT.

AND SO GOD FILLED HER WITH

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

IT IS THE SAME THING WITH

THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

IT MEANS THAT HIS DEATH, HIS

CRUCIFIXION, HIS

RESURRECTION -- WHAT WE'RE

SAYING IS THAT IS MY

AUTHORITY TO ASK FOR

HEALING.

BY HIS STRIPES, I AM

HEALED.

BY HIS BLOOD I AM SET FREE

FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW.

HE HAS REDEEMED ME BY HIS

BLOOD.

IT IS THE SACRIFICE OF

JESUS.

SO YOU SAY, I PLEAD THE

BLOOD.

WHAT WE'RE SAYING IS THAT IS

MY ACCESS INTO THE POWER OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I ENTER INTO THE THRONE ROOM

OF GOD THROUGH THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST.

THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS.

BUT THIS ISN'T VOO-DOO.

IT'S NOT SMART TO TALK ABOUT

LITTLE PHRASES AND CATCH

PHRASES.

THERE WERE PEOPLE,

AGNOSTICS, WHO THOUGHT,

OKAY, I'VE GONE UP TO HEAVEN

AND I'M GOING TO MEET A

CREATURE AND I'VE GOT TO

IDENTIFY HIM BY NAME.

AND IF I CAN NAME HIM, AND

THEN I GO UP ONE STEP HIGHER

-- WE DON'T BELIEVE IN

SUPERSTITION.

THIS ISN'T SUPERSTITION.

IT IS THE POWER OF GOD.

Wendy: THERE IS STILL

POWER IN THE BLOOD.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE

THIS, "BE HEALED," AND IT'S

PAT'S NEW TEACHING.

CALL US NOW AND YOU CAN HAVE

IT.

Pat: SPEAKING OF THE

BLOOD, WE MOURN ANDRAE

CROUCH, AND HE WROTE "THE

BLOOD WILL NEVER LOSE ITS

POWER."

Wendy: AND I LOVE HIS

OLD HYMN, "POWER, POWER."

Pat: AND WE HAVE A

COUPLE OF QUESTIONS?

Wendy: OUR NEW

PASTOR -- DAVE WRITES

IN, "OUR NEW PASTOR SAID HE

READS HIS HOROSCOPE BUT ONLY

FOR ENTERTAINMENT.

I BELIEVE IT IS WRONG TO

READ THEM.

AM I CORRECT?

IF SO, SHOULD MY WIFE AND I

SPEAK TO THE PASTOR OR LOOK

FOR A NEW CHURCH?"

Pat: I WOULDN'T DO IT

BY YOURSELF IF YOU WANT TO

TALK TO HIM.

BUT THERE IS -- THERE IS

POWER IN THE BLOOD, BUT

THERE IS ALSO POWER IN THE

OCCULT.

IF YOU START READING THOSE

HOROSCOPES, YOU WILL FIND

THERE IS A DRAW THAT DRAWS

THE INSIDE OF YOUR BEING AND

IT PULLS YOU.

YOU CAN FEEL IT.

AND TO PROGNOSTICATIONS FROM

THE STARS, FROM SO-CALLED

MEDIUMS AND PSYCHICS, IT IS

WRONG.

TO READ THAT STUFF IS

WRONG.

GOD ALMIGHTY HAS A PLAN AND

A PURPOSE FOR PEOPLE, AND IT

SHOULDN'T BE DETERMINED BY

SOME PSYCHIC.

SO FOR ANY PASTOR TO BE

LETING HI LETTING HIS

CONGREGATION GET INVOLVED IN

THAT, IT IS WRONG.

SHAME ON HIM.

Wendy: BRENDA

WRITES, "MY DAUGHTER IS A

GOOD PERSON AND A GOOD

CHRISTIAN, AND SHE LIVES

WITH HER BOYFRIEND.

THEY PLAN ON GETTING

MARRIED, BUT HE HAS TO GET A

DIVORCE FIRST.

WILL THEY GO TO HELL FOR

THIS?"

Pat: IT IS ADULTERY.

SHE IS LIVING WITH A MARRIED

MAN WHO IS STILL MARRIED.

AND HE IS A GOOD PERSON?

BOLOGNA.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM 34: "I

SOUGHT THE LORD AND HE HEARD

ME AND DELIVERED ME FROM ALL

OF MY FEARS."

WRITE THAT DOWN AND REPEAT

IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

TOMORROW, A MAN MAKES A

MIRACULOUS RECOVERY FROM

EARLY ON-SET DEMENTIA.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
