The 700 Club - February 18, 2015

Travis grew up in an abusive home and got into trouble as a teen, but an arrest would change his young life just in time. Also, Chris Baker uses his talent as a tattoo artist to help people who are starting their lives over. Read Transcript


CONVERT OR DIE.

ISIS HAD LAID DOWN THE

GAUNTLET, SO WHAT COMES

NEXT.

CHRIS MITCHELL SHARES HOW

THE MIDDLE EAST IS PREPPING

FOR THE DAYS AHEAD.

> PLUS, THE TATTOO ARTIST

WHO IS RESCUING SEX SLAVES.

THERE WERE BAR CODES PUT

ON THE SEX TRAFFICKER

VICTIMS, AND IT BROKE MY

HEART.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

I'M HURT THAT THERE IS

SOMEBODY IN THE STATE

DEPARTMENT -- WENDY WAS JUST

TELLING ME THAT THEY SAID

THE PROBLEM WITH ISIS IS

THAT THEY NEED JOBS.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

HOW STUPID CAN YOU GET?

IT IS A DEADLY THREAT TO

AMERICA AND THE WORLD, BUT

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

WILL NOT SPEAK ITS NAME.

IT'S RADICAL ISLAM.

AND NOT EVEN AT A WHITE

HOUSE SUMMIT ON TERRORISM

WILL BE IT NAMED.

Wendy: THAT SUMMIT IS

HAPPENING NOW, AND CRITICS

ARE URGING THE PRESIDENT TO

FACE THE FACTS.

Reporter: THE SUMMIT IS

AFTER THE GRUESOME BEHEADING

OF 21 CHRISTIANS IN

JERUSALEM.

AN UNCONFIRMED REPORT

SUGGESTS THAT ISIS BURNED 25

PEOPLE TO DEATH.

THE TOWN IS NEAR AN AIR BASE

WHERE AMERICAN MARINES ARE

STATIONED.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

CRITICS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

THE SUMMIT AND THE

ADMINISTRATION'S RESPONSE TO

THE ISIS CRISIS.

THEY SAY THE PRESIDENT HAS

REFUSED TO CALL ISIS WHAT IT

REALLY IS, AN ISLAMIC

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION

MOTIVATED BY THE QURAN AND

BENT ON KILLING CHRISTIANS,

JEWS, AND OTHERS.

ALSO, THERE IS CRITICISM OF

SUMMIT WORD CHOICES.

INSTEAD OF CALLING IT A

SUMMIT ON ISLAMIC TERROR,

THE ADMINISTRATION SAID THE

SUMMIT'S FOCUS IS ON

COUNTERING VIOLENT

EXTREMISM.

THIS STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKES

WOMEN WAS CRITICIZED AFTER

SHE MADE THIS STATEMENT.

WE NEED THE LONGER TERM

TO GO AFTER THE ROOT CAUSES

THAT LEADS PEOPLE TO JOIN

THESE GROUPS, WHETHER IT IS

LACK OF OPPORTUNITY FOR

JOBS.

Reporter: AND SEVERAL

REPUBLICANS ON CAPITOL HILL

HAVE EXPRESSED CONCERN OVER

THE PRESIDENT'S MIDDLE EAST

IMMIGRATION POLICY.

HE PLANS TO ALLOW THOUSANDS

INTO THE UNITED STATES.

THAT RAISES SECURITY

CONCERNS BECAUSE MANY OF THE

SYRIANS ALLOWED IN, THEY

SAY, COULD BE TERRORISM.

MEANWHILE, THE F.B.I.

CONTINUES TO INVESTIGATE THE

POSSIBLE IDENTITY OF THIS

MASKED ISIS LEADER.

HE APPEARED IN THE CHRISTIAN

EGYPTIAN BEHEADING ROLE.

HIS ACCENT WOULD SUGGEST HE

IS FROM NORTH AMERICA.

HE SAYS "SOUTH," INSTEAD

"SOUTH."

I THINK HE SOUNDS PRETTY

AMERICAN.

Reporter: THOUSANDS WHO

HAVE JOINED ISIS IN THE

REIGN OF GLOBAL TERROR.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I'M APPALLED,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO

REALLY DOESN'T LIKE THIS

COUNTRY.

HE DOESN'T US TO BE

EXCEPTIONAL.

HE DOESN'T WANT US TO LEAD

THE WORLD.

HE WANTS TO LEAD FROM

BEHIND.

HE HAS DITHERED ON SO MANY

ISSUES, AND IT IS ALWAYS HE

IS COMING IN TOO LATE.

THE CRISIS THAT ARISES IN

IRAN, WE COULD HAVE TAKEN A

BOLD STAND AND HELP THE

FREEDOM MOVEMENT.

HE DIDN'T SAY A WORD UNTIL

LATER ON.

HE DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING

ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN

SYRIA UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE.

AND THEN TO HAVE A PERSON

SAY WHAT THEY NEED IS JOBS,

HOW STUPID CAN YOU GET?

BUT WE'RE INFLICTED WITH

THIS THING, AND WE'VE GOT TO

MAKE THE BEST OF IT.

IN JUST A FEW MINUTES WE'LL

TALK TO OUR MIDDLE EAST

BUREAU CHIEF ABOUT THE

THREAT FROM ISIS, AND THE

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IN

THAT AREA.

BUT, FIRST, FRANCE IS TRYING

TO TRACK DOWN MEMBERS OF

TERRORIST SLEEPER CELLS.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT STORY

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

HERE IS EFREM.

Efrem: PAT, THE

COUNTRY'S TOP SECURITY

OFFICIAL SAYS 400 SUSPECTS

HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED.

ONE OF THE MAIN CONCERNS FOR

AUTHORITYAUTHORITIES IS HOW

TO PREVENT THE MEN FROM

BEING RADICALIZED.

MANY HAVE BELIEVED TO BE

RADICALIZED IN JAIL.

FRANCE WANTS MORE LEEWAY TO

MONITOR SUSPECTS' ELECTRONIC

COMMUNICATIONS.

> STOCKS ARE HITTING NEW

RECORD HIGHS ON WALL STREET

WITH THE STANDARD AND POOR'S

500 CLOSING.

ABOVE 2100 FOR THE FIRST

TIME ON TUESDAY, AND THE DOW

INDUSTRIALS FINISHED UNDER

THE ALL TIME HIGH OF 1854.

AND THE NASDAQ IS CLOSING IN

ON THE 5,000 LEVEL.

ALTHOUGH SOME ANALYSTS WORRY

THE MARKET COULD TURN DOWN

SOON, MANY ARE STILL VERY

OPTMISTIC AND LOOK FOR THE

MARKET TO KEEP HITTING NEW

HIGHS IN THE MONTHS AHEAD.

PAT, ANY PREDICTIONS?

Pat: IT IS LIKE THE

PARTY ON THE LUSITANIA

BEFORE IT HIT THE ICEBERG.

WE'VE GOT THIS

INSURMOUNTABLE DEATH, WE'VE

GOT THE SLOWDOWN IN EUROPE

AND IN CHINA.

I'M WITH GARY SCHILLING, WHO

HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT

DEFLATION, AND I THINK WE'RE

GOING INTO DEFLATION.

WHAT THAT DOES TO THE STOCK

MARKET, I DON'T KNOW.

BUT I THINK THE EARNINGS OF

THE AMERICAN CORPORATIONS IS

NOT GOING TO BE AT THEIR

BEST TOO MUCH LONGER.

AND THE STOCK MARKET IS

SUPPOSED TO WORK OFF OF

EARNINGS.

AND THE QE-2 HAS BEEN

TERMINATED, SO THAT FLOOD OF

MONEY THAT HAS BEEN

SUPPORTING THE STOCK MARKET

ISN'T GOING TO BE THERE

ANYMORE.

I WOULDN'T THINK THE STOCKS

ARE GOING TO KEEP GOING.

BUT IT IS IRRATIONAL.

IT IS IRRATIONAL EXUBERANCE,

AND HEY, THE PARTY IS GOING

ON, SO DON'T TAKE AWAY THE

PUNCH BOWL.

Efrem: PAT, IT IS THE

WINTER THAT JUST WON'T

QUIT.

IN BOSTON, NEARLY EIGHT FEET

OF SNOW HAS FALLEN SO FAR,

AND MORE IS PREDICTED AT THE

END OF THE WEEK.

THE SNOW IS SO DEEP IN SOME

AREAS, RESIDENTS WERE MAKING

VIDEOS OF THEMSELVES JUMPING

OUT OF WINDOWS INTO THE SNOW

AND POSTING THEM ON LINE.

THE BOSTON MAYOR TOLD PEOPLE

TO STOP IT, WARNING THEM

THEY COULD KILL THEMSELVES.

IN PLACES LIKE MANCHESTER,

GAS STATIONS ARE LITERALLY

OUT OF FUEL AFTER THE

BACK-TO-BACK STORMS HAVE

PREVENTED GETTING THE

SUPPLIES.

WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES ARE

ALSO AN ISSUE IN MANY

STATES.

> THE NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND

GAME IS OVER, BUT THE EVENTS

ARE STILL GOING THROUGHOUT

THE WEEK IN NEW YORK CITY.

ANGELA ZADAPECK TALKED TO

SOME ALL-STAR PLAYERS AND

FAITH LEADERS ABOUT THEIR

ALL-STAR EFFORTS TO

STRENGTHEN FAMILIES.

Reporter: THE ENTIRE

NBA UNIVERSE HAS DESCENDED

UPON NEW YORK CITY, AND THAT

CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING:

IT'S NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND.

ALLEN HOUSTON HAS TEAMED UP

WITH OTHER PLAYERS OFF THE

COURT TO THROW THE FIRST

ANNUAL FAMILY ALL-STAR

GROUP.

THEY SHARED AN IMPORTANT

MESSAGE FOR TODAY'S YOUTH

AND THEIR FAMILIES.

WE REALLY WANT TO DO

SOMETHING FUN, SO WE BROUGHT

FAMILIES AND KIDS TOGETHER.

THE GOAL IS TO MAKE A

PURPOSEFUL DAY FUN.

Reporter: INCORPORATING

A D.J., BASKETBALL PLAYERS

AND OTHER PLAYERS, HOUSTON

WANTED TO DESIGN AN

INTERACTIVE APPROACH TO

TEACH THEIR FOUNDATION'S

MESSAGE.

WE CAME UP WITH

CONTINUING TO DO BASKETBALL

PROGRAMS, AND THE NAME

FIZZLE JUST CAME TO MY MIND,

WE DEVELOPED A CURRICULUM

AROUND IT.

AND WE REALLY WANT TO BE

RELEVANT TO THIS CULTURE AND

SOCIETY.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

SPEAK THE WAY OF THE LORD

THAT IS NOT OFFENSIVE AND

DOESN'T SHUT THEM OFF FROM

RECEIVING IT.

WHAT BETTER WAY THAN TO

THROW A BUNCH OF SNEAKERS

INTO THE ROOM, YOUR BEST

MUSIC, AND AN ALL-STAR, AND

HAVE ME AS AN M.C., BECAUSE

I'M CRAZY.

Reporter: THEY HOPE

TONIGHT'S EVENTS COULD HELP

INSPIRING THE YOUTH ON

CONNECTING WITH THEIR

FAMILIES.

SPECIFICALLY FATHERS AND HIS

CHILDREN.

HE BROUGHT HIS OWN FATHER

WHO TAUGHT HIM HOW TO WALK

ON A BASKETBALL COURT.

FOR YEARS, MY FATHER AND

I TALKED ABOUT HAVING THE

IMPORTANCE OF A LEGACY,

HAVING YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN

HAVING AN IMPORTANT MALE

FIGURE IN THEIR LIVES.

AND WE FEEL LIKE THAT IS A

VOID.

WE'RE DEALING WITH AN

EPIDEMIC OF FATHERLESS

HOMES.

WE'RE TURNING EVERYWHERE

ELSE FOR PEOPLE TO BE

BOTHERED.

WE'RE LOOKING TO MUSIC,

WE'RE LOOKING TO RAP STARS

AND ATHLETES.

THE WHOLE IDEA OF THIS EVENT

IS TO PUSH MEN TO TAKE

RESPONSIBILITY, AND TO PUSH

THEM TO GOD AND

FAITHFULNESS.

TODAY IS A SEED, AND WE

WON'T SEE THE FRUITFULNESS

OF THIS FOR A WHILE, BUT WE

DID OUR PART.

Reporter: ALL-STAR

EVENTS ARE CONTINUING

THROUGHOUT THE WEEK IN NEW

YORK CITY.

FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT

CBNNEWS.COM.

I'M ANGELA ZADAPECK, CBN

NEWS, NEW YORK CITY.

Efrem: FAITH IN

ACTION.

PAT?

Pat: I'VE GRADUATED

CONGRATULATED.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS

ABOUT ATHLETES BEATING UP

THEIR GIRLFRIENDS, AND TO

SEE THEM HELPING THE NEEDY,

IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE IT.

THESE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE

LOOKING FOR ROLE MODELS.

WE HAVE A GUY LATER ON, HE

HAD AN ALCOHOLIC STEPFATHER,

AND THAT WAS HIS ROLE MODEL

AND HE GOT INTO A LOT OF

TROUBLE.

CONGRATULATIONS WITH THESE

ATHLETES.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

ISIS ON THE MOVE, AND THE

BLOOD OF CHRISTIANS ON THEIR

HANDS.

WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR THE

REMAINING CHRISTIANS IN THE

MIDDLE EAST?

CHRIS MITCHELL SHARES THEIR

STORIES, NEXT.

Pat: WELL, ISIS -- ISIS

BURST ON THE WORLD'S STAGE

LAST SUMMER, AND THE

PRESIDENT CALLED THEM THE

J.B.TEAM.

BUT SUDDENLY THEY CAPTURED

MOSUL, AND BEGAN BRUTALLY

KILLING THE HOSTAGES FOR ALL

OF THE WORLD TO SEE.

AND NOW ISIS'S THREATS GO

BEYOND THE MIDDLE EAST, AND

IT IS EVEN PROMISING TO FLY

ITS FLAG OVER THE WHITE

HOUSE.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

BUREAU CHIEF IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, CHRIS MITCHELL HAS

MORE.

Reporter: IF YOU LOOK

DOWN THE ROAD AND SEE THAT

BRIDGE IN THE DISTANCE, THAT

IS THE FIRST CHECK-POINT FOR

ISIS AND THE BEGINNING OF

THE REGION AND THE AREA THEY

CONTROL.

HE ALSO SAT DOWN WITH THE

PESHMERGA AND HEARD HORRIFIC

STORIES FROM THE YAZIDI

FAMILIES, AND MET THOSE

CHRISTIAN REFUGEES WHO CAME

FACE TO FACE WITH ISIS AND

SHARED THEIR GRIPPING

ACCOUNTS.

THEY TAKE EVERYTHING,

FROM THE HOUSE, FROM THE

STORES, EVERYTHING.

THEY HATE CHRISTIANS

ESPECIALLY.

WE DON'T KNOW WHY.

[SOBBING]

Reporter: MITCHELL

CHRONICLES THOSE EXPERIENCES

IN HIS NEW BOOK,

"DESTINATION JERUSALEM,"

WHICH FOLLOWS THE RISE OF

ISIS, THE THREAT IT POSSESS

TO THPOSSESS TO THE WORLD.

AND THE BOOK THOS SHOWS HOW

YOU CAN PREPARE FOR THE

DANGEROUS DAYS THAT LAY

AHEAD.

Pat: CHRIS MITCHELL IS

WITH US NOW.

GREAT TO SEE YOU, PAT.

Pat: YOU SAW ISIS UP

CLOSE AND PERSONAL.

WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM THAT

EXPERIENCE?

AS YOU SAW IN THAT VIDEO,

WE WERE ABOUT A MILE AWAY

FROM ISIS.

WHEN WE WERE WITH SOME OF

THE IRAQI POLICE, WE WOULD

ABOUT A HALF MILE FROM

ISIS.

WHAT DID I LEARN?

DEVASTATION.

THEY JUST LEAVE SORT OF A

TRAIL OF DEVASTATION IN

THEIR WAKE.

WE SAW THAT.

WE GOT TO SEE, FOR EXAMPLE,

IN THE FIRST REFUGEE CAMP,

WE SPOKE TO AN IRAQI SOLDIER

WHO WORKED INTELLIGENCE, AND

HE TOLD US WHAT ISIS'S GOALS

WERE.

AND WE TALKED TO A YAZIDI

WOMAN WHO LOST HER SON

BECAUSE HE HAD GONE BACK TO

GET SOME FOOD.

HE WAS CAPTURED BY ISIS AND

BEHEADED.

Pat: THE SON WAS

GETTING FOOD AND THEY

BEHEADED HIM?

Reporter: THEY WERE ON

MT. SINJAR, AND THEY

CAPTURED HIM BECAUSE HE WENT

TO GET FOOD.

THE REASON FOR THE BOOK IS

THREE: TO WARN PEOPLE ABOUT

ISIS AND THEIR GOALS, TO

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT THE AWFUL

PERSECUTION, AND TO HELP

PEOPLE PREPARE FOR THE DAYS

AHEAD.

Pat: WHAT DID YOU

LEARN?

YOU TALKED TO PESHMERGA

TROOPS AS WELL, BUT WHAT DID

YOU LEARN ABOUT THE GOAL OF

ISIS?

THE GOALS ARE NOT ONLY TO

TAKE OVER REGIONALLY, BUT TO

TAKE OVER EUROPE AND

EVENTUALLY TAKE OVER THE

WORLD.

THIS IS THEIR WORLD.

SPECIFICALLY FOR THE

CHRISTIANS, THEY WERE GIVEN

FOUR CHOICES.

THEY COULD EITHER CONVERT,

THEY COULD SAY THE ISLAMIC

CREED AND BECOME A MUSLIM.

THEY COULD LEAVE.

THE HOME MAYBE THEY HAVE

BEEN IN YEARS FOR

GENERATIONS.

THEY COULD PAY WHAT IS

CALLED THE ISLAMIC JIZATAX.

OR THE LAST FOURTH CHOICE,

THEY COULD DIE BY THE

SWORD.

WE MET MANY OF THEM.

PAT, I BROUGHT ALONG THIS

NEW TESTAMENT.

THE MAN YOU SAW IN THE VIDEO

GAVE ME THIS NEW TESTAMENT.

HE WAS CAPTURED BY ISIS.

THEY SAID HE WAS A

MISSIONARY OR A SPY, AND

THEY THREATENED TO KILL HIM,

AND HE GAVE ME THIS.

AND THERE WAS A LADY IN ONE

OF THE PEOPLE WE

INTERVIEWED.

AND SHE GAVE US THIS PIECE

OF CANDY.

IT WAS THE ONLY THING SHE

COULD GIVE US AS A SIGN OF

HOSPITALITY.

I KEEP THIS AS A REMINDER OF

WHAT THE THOUSANDS OF

CHRISTIANS HAVE SUFFERED AND

ARE SUFFERING NOW.

THAT IS WHAT WE TRY TO TELL

IN THE BOOK.

Pat: HOW MUCH

SUFFERING -- ISIS LITERALLY

WANTED TO DESTROY ALL OF THE

CHRISTIANS?

THAT WAS THEIR GOAL?

YOU SAW THAT IN THE 21

COPTIC CHRISTIANS THAT WERE

KILLED.

THAT'S THEIR GOAL.

Pat: CAN YOU BELIEVE

THE PRESIDENT SAID THERE

WERE SOME EGYPTIANS,

CIVILIANS THAT WERE

CAPTURED?

EXACTLY.

AND HE SAID THE SAME THING

ABOUT THE PEOPLE KILLED IN

THE KOSHER MARKET.

HE DIDN'T CALL THEM JEWS.

AND THAT'S ONE OF THE

POINTS.

WE NEED TO KNOW OUR ENEMY.

MY DAD, E FOUGH, HE FOUGHT

IN WORL WORLD WAR II.

AND TODAY OUR WORLD IS

FIGHTING ISLAMISM.

AND OUR ADMINISTRATION

DOESN'T WANT TO CALL IT WHAT

IT IS.

Pat: DID YOU HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO SOME

OF THE ISIS FIGHTERS?

I DON'T THINK I WOULD BE

HERE IF I TALKED TO SOME OF

THE FIGHTERS.

I TALKED TO THE PESHMERGA.

Pat: AND WHAT DID THEY

TELL YOU?

THEY SAID, PLEASE GIVE US

THE BOOTS WE NEED ON THE

GROUND.

THEY'RE LOYAL AND GRAVE AND

HARD FIGHTERS, AND THEY NEED

THE EQUIPMENT.

SO THEY'RE ASKING THE UNITED

STATES, GIVE US THE WEAPONS,

AND GIVE US THE TRAINING SO

WE CAN FIGHT ISIS.

THEY WERE TELLING US ON THE

FRONT LINES THAT ISIS HAD

BETTER EQUIPMENT FROM THEM

AND THEY CAN STAY OUT OF

RANGE FROM THEM.

SO IT WAS NOT A FAIR FIGHT

FROM THE PESHMERGA'S POINT

OF VIEW.

IF I CAN USE A FOOTBALL

ANALOGY, IT IS LIKE A

RECEIVER IN THE END ZONE,

WAVING THEIR ARMS, SAYING,

PLEASE THROW US THE BALL.

Pat: ARE WE DOING IT

FINALLY?

I SPOKE A FEW WEEKS AGO

TO SENATOR CORKER FROM D.C.,

AND HE SAYS THEY'RE STILL

WORKING ON IT.

IT SEEMS LIKE THE BAGHDAD

GOVERNMENT IS STOPPING THE

WEAPONS TO THE PESHMERGA.

Pat: THAT'S HORRIBLE.

THEY ARE STILL KIND OF

SHI'ITE-FRIENDLY -- IS THAT

THE IDEA.

IF THEIR SHI'ITE-FRIENDLY,

THEN THEY WOULD BE FRIENDLY

TO IRAN?

YOU'RE RIGHT.

I THINK ONE OF THE MAIN

GOALS OF THE PRESIDENT IS

THAT HE WOULD GET A NUCLEAR

DEAL WITH IRAN.

AND THAT IS PREVENTING HIM

FROM IMPLEMENTING THE WAY HE

SHOULD BECAUSE HE WANTS TO

TRY TO GET THIS DEAL WITH

IRAN ON MARCH 24th.

Pat: NETANYAHU IS GOING

TO MAKE A SPEECH BEFORE

CONGRESS.

HOW IS THAT PLAYING OUT IN

ISRAEL?

POLITICALLY IT SEEMS LIKE

HIS OPPOSITION IS USING IT

AS A WEAPON AGAINST HIM,

TRYING TO SAY THAT HE IS

DAMAGING U.S.-ISRAELI

RELATIONS.

RIGHT NOW I THINK NETANYAHU

IS CONVINCED THAT THE DEAL

ON MARCH 24th IS A BAD

DEAL AND THAT HE NEEDS TO

SPEAK TO THE CONGRESS.

AND HE NEEDS TO MAKE A

POINT.

THIS GOES COUNTER TO WHAT

THE WHITE HOUSE DOES AND

WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA DOES.

SO I THINK THIS IS

SOMETHING -- DESPITE THE

POLITICAL FALLOUT, HE'S

GOING TO GO AHEAD AND DO

THAT.

Pat: HE'LL DO IT

ANYHOW.

IS HE GOING TO WIN THE

ELECTION?

I THINK HE WILL WIN THE

ELECTION.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE POLLS,

THEY'RE NECK-IN-NECK WITH

THE ZIONIST PARTY.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE WHOLE

120 SEATS, IT STILL GOES

CENTER RIGHT.

I THINK HE'LL BE ABLE TO

FORM A GOVERNMENT AFTER

THIS.

AND ONE OTHER THING, PAT,

ABOUT THE PESHMERGA AND THAT

WHOLE AREA, I TALKED TO A

KURDISH PASTOR THE OTHER

DAY, AND HE SAID, PLEASE ASK

PEOPLE TO PRAY.

PRAY FOR THE CHURCH BECAUSE

THEY'RE OVERWHELMED WITH THE

NUMBER OF REFUGEES, AND

THEY'RE ASKING FOR HELP TO

PRAY TO GET THE GOSPEL OUT.

AND THEY'RE ALSO PRAYING FOR

WISDOM FOR THE KURDISH

MILITARY.

THANKFULLY CBN INTERNATIONAL

IS HELPING THESE REFUGEES,

BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND

PRACTICALLY.

Pat: I'VE BEEN A GREAT

FAN OF THE KURDS.

I THINK THEY'RE WONDERFUL

PEOPLE AND WE NEED TO

SUPPORT THEM.

YEAH, WE DO.

Pat: CHRIS, I HOPE YOUR

BOOK IS SUCCESSFUL.

"DESTINATION JERUSALEM."

TELL ME ABOUT THAT TITLE,

DESTINATION JERUSALEM WITH

AN ISIS FLAG?

EXACTLY.

I CHOSE THE TITLE BECAUSE

NOT ONLY ISIS BUT HAMAS, THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD,

al-QAEDA, THEY HAVE A

DESTINATION, THEY WANT

JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF

THEIR FUTURE CALIPHATE, THE

ISLAMIC EMPIRE RULED BY

SHAR'IA LAW.

THERE WAS EVEN AN AD BY

NETANYAHU ABOUT ISIS LOOKING

FOR DIRECTIONS TO

JERUSALEM.

Pat: CHRIS, WE

APPRECIATE THIS.

IS THIS AVAILABLE FOR SALE?

IT IS AVAILABLE FOR

SALE.

YOU CAN GO TO cbn.com OR

AMAZON.COM.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS ABOUT

"DESTINATION JERUSALEM," THE

ISIS HAS A PROPHECY, AND

THEE FEEL LIKE THEY'RE IN

THE END TIMES AND THEY'RE

FULFILLING PROPHECY.

THEY'RE EXPECTING A MAJOR

BATTLE IN A PLACE CALL

DEBECK, IN SYRIA, AND THEY

FEEL THEY WILL PREVAIL OVER

THEM AND EVENTUALLY GET TO

JERUSALEM.

WE SEE PROPHECY UNFOLDING.

I REMEMBER IN 2001 YOU WERE

AT THE BUREAU, AND YOU

PRAYED AND SAID JESUS IS NOT

COMING BACK TO D.C. OR

LONDON, BUT HE IS COMING

BACK TO THE CITY OF

JERUSALEM.

Pat: CHRIS, GOD BLESS

YOU.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS

BOOK IS AVAILABLE,

"DESTINATION JERUSALEM."

WE APPRECIATE THE TREMENDOUS

WORK THAT OUR JERUSALEM

BUREAU IS DOING UNDER THE

LEADERSHIP OF CHRIS

MITCHELL.

WENDY?

Wendy: CHRIS, I WANT A

SIGNED COPY.

> COMING UP, A TEENAGER

WHO HELD A CAB WITH A

SAWED-OFF SHOTGUN.

HAVING A GUN PUT AN "S"

ON YOUR CHEST AND MADE YOU

FEEL LIKE YOU WERE

INVINCIBLE.

Wendy: OF COURSE HE

WASN'T INVINCIBLE, AND

YOU'LL FIND OUT WHY, NEXT.

Pat: A TROUBLED YOUTH.

HOW COME TRAVIS HOLLAND GOT

EXPELLED FROM SCHOOL?

NOT ONCE, NOT TWICE, NOT

THREE TIMES, BUT SIX TIMES.

HE GAINED A FIERCE

REPUTATION THROUGH

FIGHTING.

AND BEFORE LONG, TRAVIS

GRADUATED TO ARMED ROBBERY

WITH A SAWED-OFF SHOTGUN,

THAT BECAME HIS WEAPON OF

CHOICE.

WE CALLED A CAB.

I PUT A MASK ON TO HOP IN

THE BACK SEAT, AND I PULLED

THE GUN OUT, AND THE GUY

FROZE.

Reporter: TRAVIS WAS

ONLY 16 YEARS OLD WHEN HE

COMMITTED ARMED ROBBERY.

HIS TENDENCY FOR VIOLENCE

STARTED AT HOME.

MY MOTHER AND STEPFATHER

WOULD FIGHT A LOT AND IT

SOMETIMES GOT PHYSICAL.

Reporter: TRAVIS'

STEPFATHER BEGAN TO

PHYSICALLY ABUSE HIM AND HIS

BROTHER.

HE CALLED MY BROTHER

UPSTAIRS, AND HE KICKED MY

BROTHER INTO THE WALL.

I REMEMBER WHAT THAT DID TO

ME.

IT MADE ME ANGRY.

BUT YOU CAN'T DO NOTHING

ANYTHIN AT THAT AGE.

Reporter: ONE DAY

TRAVIS DISCOVERED A NEW WAY

TO DEAL WITH HIS INCREASING

ANGER.

I WAS WALKING HOME WITH

SOME FRIENDS, AND THIS GUY

WAS DOING NOTHING TO US.

HE WAS OUT PLAYING

FOOTBALL.

AND WE WERE JUST WALKING

PAST HIM, AND HE SAID

SOMETHING, AND I THINK IT

WAS, HI.

WE BEAT THIS GUY SO BADLY TO

NO APPARENT REASON.

IT WAS A RELEASE, IT MADE ME

FEEL BETTER.

Reporter: AS TRAVIS

GREW OLDER, HIS ANGER

INTENSIFIED, AS DID THE

VIOLENCE.

WE WERE GETTING IN FIGHTS

WITH PEOPLE, AND THEY HAD

GUNS.

SO QUITE NATURALLY, WE WOULD

GET GUNS.

AND HAVING A GUN PUT AN "S"

ON YOUR CHEST AND MADE YOU

FEEL LIKE YOU WERE

INVINCIBLE.

AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME,

WHEN I WAS 16 YEARS OLD, I

HAD THE POSSESSION OF A

SAWED-OFF SHOTGUN.

AND MY FRIEND ASKED ME,

WOULD I BE INTERESTED IN

COMMITTING AN ARMED

ROBBERY.

AND I WAS, LIKE, YEAH.

Reporter: THEIR TARGET

WAS A TAXI DRIVER.

THE GUY FROZE.

HE WAS, LIKE, WHATEVER YOU

WANT, JUST TAKE IT.

AND I FELT SOME ANGER I

DIDN'T KNOW I HAD INSIDE.

I CURSED AT HIM.

I WAS SO HATEFUL TO THIS

GUY.

I SAID I'M GOING TO BLOW

YOUR HEAD OFF, AND I KNEW I

WOULD HAVE DONE IT.

Reporter: THE ONLY

THING THAT STOPPED HIM IS

THAT THE GUN WAS EMPTY.

SOMETHING IN ME THAT DAY

TOLD ME TO TAKE THE BULLET

OUT.

Reporter: THE TWO FLED

WITH THE MONEY BUT WERE SOON

ARRESTED.

HIS FRIEND WAS SENT TO JAIL

AND TRAVIS WAS TAKEN TO

JUVENILE DETENTION.

WHILE THERE, HE HAD TO FACE

THE HARD TRUTH.

I WAS SURROUNDED BY KIDS

WHO WERE ANGRY, WHO HAD

COMMITTED MURDERS.

I WAS, LIKE, AM I REALLY

LIKE THAT?

DO I REALLY DESERVE TO BE

HERE?

AND THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER

WAS YES.

SO I BECAME ANGRY AT

MYSELF.

I WAS, LIKE, GOD, IF YOU CAN

DO ANYTHING, NOW WOULD BE

THE TIME TO DO IT.

Reporter: SOON AFTER A

MINISTER VISITED THE

DETENTION CENTER AND SPOKE

ABOUT JESUS.

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT A

TRANSFORMED LIFE.

HE CAN GIVE YOU A NEW

HEART.

HE WAS JUST PREACHING THE

PUREST AND SIMPLEST I HAD

EVER HEARD.

JESUS LOVES YOU AND HE WILL

FORGIVE YOU.

JUST ASK HIM TO FORGIVE

YOU.

AND I DID THAT.

AND WHEN I DID THAT, I FELT

NO ANGER.

I DIDN'T FEEL THAT ANYMORE.

Reporter: TRAVIS WAS

CHARGED AS AN ADULT AND

SENTENCED TO EIGHT YEARS IN

A MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISON.

HE SAYS IT WAS THERE THAT

JESUS COMPLETELY CHANGED HIS

LIFE.

I LIKED WHAT WAS GOING ON

IN ME.

I HAD A LOVE FOR LIFE.

INSIDE OF THAT PRISON, I HAD

A LOVE FOR LIFE THAT I

HADN'T HAD ON THE OUTSIDE.

I WAS OVERJOYED BY THE FACT

THAT JESUS HAD PRETTY MUCH

TRANSFORMED MY LIFE, AND HE

WAS JUST GETTING STARTED.

Reporter: TODAY TRAVIS

WORKS AT A LOCAL BARBER SHOP

AND IS EXPECTED A CHILD WITH

HIS WIFE, AND HE HAS

CURRENTLY RECONCILED WITH

HIS PARENTS.

AND HE IS CURRENTLY BEING

LICENSED FOR MINISTRY.

JESUS DID EVERYTHING HE

SAID HE WOULD.

HE HAS TRANSFORMED ME.

I JUST LOVE THE LORD.

I LOVE HIM SO MUCH BECAUSE

MAINLY BECAUSE HE PRESENTS

HIMSELF AS THIS GOD WHO CAME

DOWN.

WE DON'T HAVE TO REACH UP.

HE COMES DOWN.

Pat: YOU CAN OVERCOME A

VERY UGLY CHILDHOOD.

YOU CAN OVERCOME THE SCARS.

THE LORD WILL HEAL TO THE

OUTER MOST THOSE WHO COME TO

HIM.

TRAVIS, HE HAD SCARS AND

ANGER THAT WAS CAWSTLED

CAUSED BY THE ABUSE WHEN HE

WAS A LITTLE BOY.

AND HE WANTED TO TAKE IT OUT

ON SOMEBODY.

AND FINALLY HE MET THE ONE

WHO HAD BORNE THE STRIPES

FOR HIM, WHO HAD TAKEN THE

ABUSE, HA WHO HAD HAD THE

CURSING AND THE SPITTING AND

THE FLAPPING AND THE WHIPS

AND THE ANGUISH.

HE IDENTIFIED WITH JESUS.

AND AS ONE CONVICT SAID, HE

TOOK THE RAP FOR ME.

HE TOOK THE RAP FOR YOU.

HE TOOK IT FOR YOU.

THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE PEACE.

AND NOW TRAVIS HAS PEACE.

DO YOU WANT PACE?

IF YOU DO, I WANT YOU TO

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

JUST BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY

THESE WORDS.

LORD JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

PRAY WITH ME.

LORD JESUS, I KNOW YOU HAVE

COME TO GIVE PEACE.

AND I WANT PEACE WITH GOD

AND PEACE WITH MY FELLOW

MAN.

I WANT TO HAVE PEACE WITH

MYSELF.

LORD, COME INTO MY HEART.

TAKE AWAY THE ANGER.

AND GIVE ME PEACE.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I

WANT TO BE PART OF YOUR

ARMY, PART OF YOUR FAMILY.

I WANT TO LIVE FOR YOU.

SO I INVITE YOU TO TAKE

OVER.

I GIVE YOU MY LIFE.

AND I RECEIVE YOUR SACRIFICE

FOR ME.

AND I TAKE YOU AS MY

SAVIOR.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU

HAVE HEARD MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE

COME INTO MY HEART.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED THAT

PRAYER WITH ME, I WANT YOU

TO DO SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO TELL SOMEBODY

BECAUSE YOU NEED TO

ESTABLISH THAT YOU JUST MADE

THAT DECISION.

SO WE HAVE TELEPHONE

COUNSELLORS.

THEY HAVE ALL HAD THE SAME

EXPERIENCE YOU HAD.

NOT ONE OF THEM THERE, AS

FAR AS I KNOW, WHO HAVEN'T

ACCEPTED THE LORD.

THEY ALL LOVE THE LORD AND

THEY LOVE YOU.

WE HAVE A TELEPHONE NUMBER.

THERE IS NO FINANCIAL

OBLIGATION OR ANYTHING

WHATSOEVER.

CALL UP AND SAY, I PRAYED

WITH PAT, I GAVE MY HEART TO

THE LORD, AND I HAVE THE

PEACE OF GOD WITHIN ME.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

THERE IS A C.D. IN HERE THAT

I THINK WILL BLESS YOU.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE,

TOO.

JUST CALL IN.

RIGHT THERE IS THE TELEPHONE

NUMBER.

WE'VE HAD SOME SNOW AROUND.

AND MAYBE SOME OF THE PHONES

MAY BE BUSY FOR A WHILE, BUT

PLEASE BE PATIENT AND CALL.

WE'LL GET TO YOU.

SO IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

VILLAGERS WHO ARE REBUILDING

LIVES.

AND THEN A TATTOO ARTIST WHO

IS REWRITING HISTORY.

Efrem: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB" FOR THIS

CBN NEWS BREAK.

ALL IT TAKES IS JUST A FEW

ROUNDS OF MODERATE EXERCISE

EACH WEEK TO HELP YOUR

HEART.

A BRITISH STUDY THAT TRACKED

MORE THAN A MILLION WOMEN

FOUND THAT MODERATE

EXERCISE, ENOUGH TO MAKE

YOURSELF SWEAT OR RAISE YOUR

HEART RATE, COULD CUT A

MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN RISK FOR

HEART DISEASE, HEART ATTACK

OR STROKE.

IT DOESN'T TAKE THE

COMMITMENT OF AN ATHLETE.

JUST TWO TO THREE TIMES A

WEEK IS ENOUGH TO HELP

PROTECT THE HEART.

A REVEREND AT THE CHURCH

SUPPORTIVE OF RECEIVING THE

DRIVEBY ASHES ON THEIR

FOREHEADS.

IT COULD BE A FIRST STEP

HAVEN'T BEEN TO CHURCH INA

FEW YEARS.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: HEY, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

IT IS STILL GOING TO BE

COLD.

BY THE WAY, IT IS GOING TO

BE RECORD-COLD TONIGHT IN

OUR AREA, ALL THROUGH THE

SOUTH.

THERE IS SOME KIND OF A

BLOCKING TROUGH WHICH RUNS

ALL THE WAY TO THE ALASKA

AREA, AND IT IS THROWING

COLD AIR THROUGHOUT THE

COUNTRY.

IT IS COLD AND IT IS GOING

TO GET COLDER.

ANYHOW, IN THE PHILIPPINES

OF 2013, IT WASN'T COLD

WEATHER.

IT WAS HOT WEATHER.

A TYPHOON LEFT MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE HOMELESS.

Reporter: 7-YEAR-OLD

MONIQUE AND HER PARENTS LIVE

ON THE EASTERN SHORE OF THE

PHILIPPINES, WHERE THE WORST

TYPHOON IN THE NATION'S

HISTORY DESTROYED

EVERYTHING.

THE RAIN AND WIND HURT

US.

WE RAN AWAY FROM THE STORM.

THE AIR SMELLED LIKE SEA

WATER.

WE NEVER THOUGHT THE WAVES

WOULD ENGULF OUR WHOLE VIL

VILLAGE, BUT THEY DID.

IT WAS REALLY HARD.

Reporter: AFTER THE

STORM SURGE, MONIQUE'S HOUSE

WAS GONE.

TO ESCAPE THE ELEMENTS, HER

FAMILY HUDDLED TOGETHER IN A

MAKESHIFT CHANTEY WITH THREE

OTHER FAMILIES.

AT NIGHT MY MOM AND DAD

WOULD SIT UP SO THAT THEIR

CHILDREN WOULD LIE DOWN TO

SLEEP.

Reporter: BUT THE

COMMUNITY HAD AN EVEN MORE

CRITICAL NEED: THEY HAD NO

FRESH DRINKING WATER.

WE COULD NOT DRINK THE

WATER FROM THE OPEN GROUND.

IT WAS VERY SALTY.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WOULD

BE ABLE TO RECOVER FROM THE

DISASTER.

Reporter: WITHIN DAYS,

CBN WAS ON THE GROUND

PROVIDING EMERGENCY FOOD AND

SUPPLIES TO STORM VICTIMS.

WE SET UP A TEMPORARY

DESALINATION PLANT TO

CONVERT SEA WATER INTO FRESH

DRINKING WATER.

A FEW WEEKS LATER WE DUG A

PERMANENT WELL FOR THE WHOLE

COMMUNITY.

THAT WATER TASTES AND

FEELS GOOD.

Reporter: THEN CBN

BUILT THE FAMILY A NEW

HOUSE.

AS A FISHERMAN, MONIQUE'S

DAD KNEW HE WOULD NEVER HAVE

THE PLEEN MEANS TO REBUILD

ON HIS OWN.

AS THE HOUSE WAS GOING UP,

HE MADE SOME NEW FURNITURE.

SOON THE FAMILY WAS ABLE TO

MOVE IN.

I'M SO HAPPY WE CAN ALL

SLEEP COMFORTABLY.

I'M GLAD THAT CBN HELPED

US.

NOW WE ARE GETTING BACK ON

OUR FEET.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Pat: JUST THINK, YOU

CAN HELP SOMEBODY IN A

SUFFERING SITUATION.

YOU KNOW, IT FEELS -- YOU

CAN'T JUST SIT AROUND AND

WATCH TELEVISION AND SAY,

OH, ISN'T THAT TOO BAD,

WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THEM.

YOU WON'T FEEL GOOD.

BUT IF YOU SAY, I WANT TO

REACH OUT AND HELP THEM, BUT

YOU CAN'T FLY TO THE

PHILIPPINES AND DROP

EVERYTHING.

BUT WE CAN GO TO THE

PHILIPPINES.

OR WE CAN GO TO INDONESIA.

OR WE CAN GO TO THE UKRAINE

OR AFRICA OR WHEREVER AND

HELP PEOPLE.

SO WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF AN

ARMY OF HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE

REACHING OUT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORLD.

IF YOU JOIN, I HAVE

SOMETHING THAT OUR PRODUCER

CAME UP WITH.

AND IT WAS A GREAT IDEA.

AND SO I WAS THERE WITH

SCOTT ROSS, AND WE HAD

HEALING TESTIMONY.

BEAUTIFUL TESTIMONIES.

AND SCOTT AND I TALKED ABOUT

THE BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS OF

HEALING.

AND IT SEEMED TO CAUGHT

PEOPLE.

PEOPLE SEEMED TO LIKE IT.

IT IS CALLED "BE HEALED."

IF YOU WANT A COPY, WE ASK

YOU TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, AND

YOU CAN BE PART OF AN ARMY

THAT IS CHANGING THE WORLD.

SOMEBODY WROTE ON THIS.

Wendy: SHARON, FROM

HERE IN VIRGINIA BEACH,

SAYS, "LOVE THIS D.V.D.

I'M SO HAPPY, PAT, THAT YOU

ARE SPREADING GOD'S MERCY,

GRACE, AND LOVE."

WE'VE GOTTEN SO MUCH GREAT

FEEDBACK FROM IT.

> WELL, UP NEXT, AN ARTIST

IS GIVING THE VICTIMS OF

HUMAN TRAFFICKING A BRAND

NEW LOOK.

I BROKE DOWN BECAUSE THEY

LOOKED JUST LIKE MY DAUGHTER

AND HER FRIENDS.

I WAS, LIKE, HOW CAN I SAY

NO?

Wendy: MEET THE MAN

BEHIND "INK 180."

AND IDA SAYS, I OWN SEVERAL

RENTAL PROPERTIES, AND I

FEEL IT IS WRONG FOR ME TO

RENT TO UNMARRIED COUPLES.

AM I BEING AN FANATIC?"

WE'LL TACKLE THIS QUESTION

AND MUCH MORE, NEXT.

Pat: HEY, FOLKS, WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

THE FACULTY AT THE LAW

SCHOOL OF REGENT UNIVERSITY

WAS NAMED ONE OF THE TOP 10

LAW FACULTIES IN THE

NATION.

THINK OF THAT.

AND THE MOOT COURT TEAM FROM

REGENT WENT OVER TO EUROPE A

YEAR AGO, AND WAS SECOND IN

THE WORLD.

THEY BEAT OXFORD AND

CAMBRIDGE.

THIS YEAR THE TEAM WON THE

HEMISPHERE, AS FAR AS I CAN

TELL, FROM ALL AREAS.

THEY'RE GOING BACK TO OXFORD

AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BEAT

THE TEAM FROM INDIA THAT

THEY LOST TO LAST YEAR, AND

THEY'LL COME OUT AS NUMBER

ONE IN THE WORLD.

SO IF YOU WANT TO GO TO A

REALLY GOOD LAW SCHOOL,

REGENT IS WHERE THE ACTION

IS.

IT IS A TREMENDOUS SCHOOL.

WE'RE TAKING ENROLLMENT

RIGHT NOW FOR THE NEXT YEAR

FOR LAW.

IT IS 1-800-210-0060.

THAT'S THE NUMBER FOR REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

AND IT'S NOT JUST LAW, IT'S

THE WHOLE PANOPLY OF

COURSES.

YOU'VE GOT ABOUT 70

DIFFERENT COURSES.

IT'S A GREAT SCHOOL.

Wendy: AMAZING THAT

THEY BEAT O OXFORD AND

CAMBRIDGE.

THOSE ARE BIG NAMES, BIG

SCHOOLS.

Pat: I KNOW.

BUT THEY FELL BEFORE THE

ONSLAUGHT OF REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

Wendy: IN OTHER NEWS,

CHRIS BAKER SAW A PROBLEM.

BUILDINGS IN HIS NATIVE

CHICAGO HAD BEEN TAGGED BY

GANGS.

AND CHRIS DECIDED TO PAINT

OVER THE GRAFFITI.

LATER HE REALIZED SOMETHING

ELSE: WALLS WEREN'T THE ONLY

THING IN HIS CITY THAT

NEEDED TO BE REINKED.

THIS IS OUR FREEDOM

TREE.

WHEN WE DO SEX TRAFFICKING

TATTOO REMOVALS.

WE ASK THEM TO DIP THEIR

HAND IN PAINT AND PUT THEIR

PRINT ON THE WALL.

I MISUSED THE FIRST 38 YEARS

OF MY LIFE, AND I ASKED TO

LORD TO TELL ME WHAT HE

WANTED ME TO DO.

I HAD BEEN A TATTOO ARTIST

FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS.

BUT THAT'S NOT DOING GOD'S

WORK.

FRIENDS I WORKED IN IN

WAREHOUSING, I WOULD WALK

INTO A LUNCH ROOM, AND THEY

WOULD SAY, I WISH I COULD

GET NICE TATTOOS LIKE YOU

HAVE.

ALL I HAVE ARE GANG

TATTOOS.

IT CLICKED.

I SAID, HEY, I BELIEVE THIS

IS MY CALLING.

I'M GOING TO START REMOVING

GANG TATTOOS FOR FREE.

AND I SAID, DO YOU THINK

PEOPLE WILL TAKE IT?

AND THEY STARTED TO LAUGH.

AND PEOPLE STARTED LINING

UP.

I DID A COVER UP FOR A GUY

NAME JUNIOR.

I COVERED THE TATTOOS ON HIS

ARM, AND WHEN HE LOOKED DOWN

AND SAW THAT THAT GANG

TATTOO WAS GONE, HE STARTED

CRYING.

THE RELIEF ON HIS FACE --

YOU COULD FEEL IT.

YOU COULD FEEL THE PAIN THAT

HE WAS TRYING TO GET

THROUGH.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ASKED, WHAT

IS THE BIG DEAL OF GETTING

RID OF THE TATTOOS?

WELL, IF YOU HAVE TATTOOS ON

THEIR FACE, HANDS, IT IS

VERY HARD TO GET A JOB.

AND THEY'RE IN DANGER FROM

FORMER ENEMIES AND FORMER

FRIENDS.

THEY CONSIDER IT LIKE FALSE

ADVERTISING.

SO THEY DON'T WANT YOU

WALKING AROUND WITH THEIR

MARKS ON YOU.

AND THEY HAVE BRUTAL WAYS OF

GETTING THEM OFF.

THEY WILL BURN THEM OFF AND

CUT THEM OUT.

SO WE PUT THIS UP JUST TO

KIND OF GIVE GANG MEMBERS AN

EXCLAMATION POINT WHEN THEY

LEAVE HERE.

THESE COLORS REPRESENT THEIR

GANGS, AND WE PUT IT UP

HERE.

WE HAVE EVERYTHING FROM

GANGSTERS, LATIN KING'S.

ONE SUNDAY I WAS IN CHURCH,

AND I HAD GIVEN AN UPDATE ON

THE MINISTRY, AND AN AGENT

FROM HOMELAND SECURITY WAS

THERE, HE ASKED ME

AFTERWARDS IF I WOULD COME

AND SPEAK TO THEIR GANG

UNIT.

HE SAYS OUR TRAFFICKING TEAM

WANTS TO HEAR WHAT YOU'RE

DOING.

AND I THOUGHT, WHAT DOES

DRUG TRAFFICKING ARE TO DO

WITH THIS.

AND HE SAID, NO, IT IS HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

I WAS IN SHOCK.

THEY STARTED GIVING ME THE

FACTS AND THE FIGURES, AND

IT BLEW ME AWAY.

I HAD NO IDEA THIS WAS

HAPPENING IN THE UNITED

STATES, CHICAGO, LET ALONG

MY COMMUNITY WHERE I LIVE.

I SAID, WHERE DO TATTOOS

COME INTO PLAY.

AND THEY STARTED LAYING OUT

EIGHEIGHT-BY-TEN PICTURES,

AND THERE WERE BAR CODES PUT

ON THEIR VICTIMS.

VULGAR IMAGES, WORDS, RULES

THAT THE PIMPS HAVE FOR

GIRLS, CONTACT INFORMATION

FOR PIMPS, ALMOST LIKE A

BUSINESS CARD TATTOOED ON

THESE VICTIMS.

AND IT BROKE MY HEART.

THEY TOOK MY ART MEDIUM THAT

I LOVE AND CARE ABOUT SO

MUCH AND MADE IT

DISGUSTING.

AND THEY STARTED SHOWING ME

PICTURES OF THESE VICTIMS'

FACES AND I BROKE DOWN

BECAUSE THEY LOOK JUST LIKE

MY DAUGHTER AND HER

FRIENDS.

AND THEY ASKED ME IF I WOULD

BE WILLING TO EXTEND THE

MINISTRY TO HELP THE VICTIMS

OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

AND I WAS, LIKE, HOW CAN I

SAY NO?

OF COURSE.

THEY'RE VERY SHATTERED

PEOPLE.

I CAN'T EVEN USE THE WORD

BROKEN BECAUSE THEIR PSYCHE

IS VERY FRAGILE.

WE HAVE GIRLS COLLAPSE ON

THE FLOORS WITH RELIEF.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO SEE THAT

BAR CODE ON THEIR NECK OR

THEIR PIMP'S NAME ON THEIR

HANDS.

SO THE FACT THEY KNOW THEY

DON'T HAVE TO EVER LOOK AT

THAT AGAIN, AND THAT DOESN'T

HAVE A HOLD ON THEM, IS AN

AMAZING FEELING.

AND IT IS VERY VISIBLE.

WHEN THEY SEE THAT IT IS

GONE, THAT EMOTION COMES

FLOWING OUT.

SO I ALWAYS POINT OUT THIS

HAND PRINT RIGHT HERE.

IT WAS A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL

WHO WAS KIDNAPPED FROM A

SHOPPING MALL IN DES MOINES,

IOWA, AND SHE WAS TRAFFICKED

FOR TWO YEARS.

SHE WAS RESCUED HERE IN

CHICAGO.

IT ALMOST FEELS LIKE YOU'RE

A REPO MAN FOR JIEWSES

JESUS.

YOU'RE PULLING THEM BACK AND

INTRODUCING THEM TO THE

LORD.

AND HELPING THEM REALIZE

THAT SECOND CHANCE IS THERE

FOR THEM.

GRACE IS FOR EVERYBODY.

AND BEING ABLE TO BE THAT

AGENT THAT KIND OF MAKES

THAT INTRODUCTION TO PEOPLE,

THAT'S THE BEST FEELING, THE

BEST RUSH IN THE WORLD.

IT MAKES IT ALL WORTH IT.

WE THOUGHT WE WOULD DO FOUR

OR FIVE OF THESE THINGS A

MONTH WHEN WE STARTED THREE

YEARS AGO, AND WE'VE DONE

OVER 2200 FREE OF CHARGE.

PEOPLE WOULD COME TO ME AND

SAY, MAN, WHAT A GREAT

IDEA.

AND I SAY, GUYS, I DON'T

WANT ANY CREDIT FOR THIS

MINISTRY.

"INK 180" IS NOT SOMETHING I

CAME UP WITH.

I ASKED GOD, WHAT DO YOU

WANT ME TO DO.

I LISTENED AND I FOLLOWED

THROUGH.

HE HAS DONE ALL OF THE HEAVY

LIFTING.

HAVE THAT CONVERSATION WITH

GOD, WHAT GIFT HAVE YOU

GIVEN ME THAT I CAN USE TO

HELP AND SERVE OTHERS IN THE

COMMUNITY, AS OPPOSED TO

JUST USING THOSE GIFTS FOR

MY OWN ENJOYMENT IN LIFE.

WE ALL HAVE GIFTS.

IT IS ALL UNIQUE.

WE ARE ALL UNIQUE.

Wendy: CHRIS BAKER,

YOU'RE DOING AN AMAZING

WORK.

Pat: HE IS REMARKABLE.

THINK OF A HUMAN BEING WITH

A BAR CODE ON, LIKE A PIECE

OF MEAT.

THAT'S THE WAY THEY'RE

TREATED BY THOSE PIMPS.

THESE GIRLS ARE JUST A

COMMODITY THAT THEY JUST BUY

AND SELL AND THEY STAMP

THEM.

AND FOR THIS MAN TO GET THEM

FREE OF THAT TERRIBLE

STIGMA, GOD BLESS HIM.

Wendy: AND TURN THAT

EYE SORE INTO SOMETHING

BEAUTIFUL THEY CAN BE PROUD

OF.

IT IS SUCH A GREAT

MINISTRY.

YOU CAN FIND MORE ABOUT

CHRIS BAKER BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT, YOU'RE IN THE HOT

SEAT.

WE'VE GOT SOME QUESTIONS.

RHONDA, SHE SAYS, "I OWN

SEVERAL RENTAL PROPERTIES,

AND I FEEL IT IS WRONG FOR

ME TO RENT TO UNMARRIED

COUPLES.

THERE ARE SO MANY THAT ARE

NOT MARRIED TODAY, AND THIS

MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT.

I KNOW THERE ARE MANY

DISCRIMINATION LAWS, AND I

DILIGENTLY WORK AROUND

THEM.

I AM TRYING TO HONOR GOD BY

PUTTING HIM FIRST AND

OBEYING HIS WILL.

AM I BEING A FANATIC?"

Pat: I DON'T THINK SO.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHATEVER IS

NOT OF FAITH IS SIN.

YOU FEEL WRONGLY ABOUT

ENCOURAGING UNMARRIED

COUPLES TO CO HABIT.

COHABIT.

THERE WASN'T A TIME YOWAS

THERE WAS WAS A TIME WHEN

YOU COULDN'T GET A ROOM IN A

HOTEL IF YOU WEREN'T

MARRIED.

NOW IT IS EVERYTHING GOES.

NO, YOU'RE NOT BEING A

FANATIC.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "DO YOU BELIEVE WE'RE

LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS?

IF SO, WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND

TO A YOUNG FOLLOWER OF GOD

WHO WANTS TO BE READY FOR

JESUS' RETURN?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

OCCUPY UNTIL I COME.

THAT MEANS GET OUT AND DO

HIS WORK, DO HIS BIDDING.

YOU REMEMBER THE STORY OF

THAT STEWARD?

HIS MASTER WENT ON A TRIP

AND HE STARTED TO GET DRUNK

AND BEAT THE SERVANTS.

AND THE LORD SAID THE ONE

THAT WILL BE HONORED IS THE

ONE THAT IS LOOKING AFTER

HIS HOUSEHOLD.

SO YOU'RE TO FEED THE SHEEP,

FEED HIS PEOPLE, LOOK AFTER

HIS PEOPLE.

THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

YOU DON'T NEED TO GO OFF IN

SOME CAVE OR SIT ON A

MOUNTAIN OR DO A DISASTER

PREP OR ANY OF THAT STUFF.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS TO

CONTINUE TO LEAD PEOPLE TO

JESUS CHRIST.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO

BE DOING IN PREPARATION FOR

HIS COMING.

BECAUSE HE WANTS TO FILL UP

HEAVEN.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

WRITES, "ARE CHRISTIANS

CONSIDERED TO BE SINNERS

SAVED BY GRACE OR RIGHTEOUS

PEOPLE THAT ARE NO LONGER

UNDER THE LAW?"

Pat: YOU KNOW, DON'T

WASTE YOUR TIME ON SEMATIC

SEMANTIC PROCESS.

YOU ARE CALLED SAINTS OF GOD

BECAUSE GOD MAKES YOU HOLY.

Wendy: BOTH OF THEM ARE

RIGHT.

Pat: THEY'RE BOTH

RIGHT, BUT THERE ARE

DIFFERENT PHASES OF IT.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

Wendy: ESTHER

WRITES, "WHEN WE PASS ON, DO

WE KNOW THAT WE'RE DEAD?

DO WE KNOW WE ARE NO LONGER

ON EARTH?

CAN WE SEE OUR LOVED ONES?

MY GRANDKIDS ASKED AND I

DON'T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN IT

TO THEM."

Pat: GET THE STORY

ABOUT LAZARUS AND THE RICH

GUY.

LAZARUS DIED AND HE WAS

CARRIED BIB BY THE ANGELS.

THE RICH MAN DIED AND HE

WOKE UP IN HELL.

HE LOOKED AND HE SAW ABRAHAM

AND LAZARUS -- HE SAW

LAZARUS IN WHAT WAS CALLED

ABRAHAM'S BOSOM.

AND HE SAID, FATHER ABRAHAM,

DO ME A FAVOR.

LET LAZARUS JUST TOUCH MY

TONGUE WITH SOME WATER.

I'M TORMENTED.

HE WAS TOTALLY AWARE OF WHO

HE WAS.

HE WAS TOTAL THE AWARE OF

THE FACT HE WAS DEAD.

HE WAS TOTALLY AWARE HE WAS

SUFFERING.

AND HE WAS TOTALLY AWARE

THAT LAZARUS, WHO HAD BEEN

SUFFERING AS A BEGGER, WAS

NOW IN HEAVEN ENJOYING THE

GOOD THINGS.

HE KNEW IT ALL.

Wendy: THIS ONE

SAYS, "MY WIFE AND I

DISAGREED ABOUT TITHING.

SHE AGREED TO THE NET

TITHE.

IF I CAN GET HER TO AGREE TO

THE NET TITHE, DO YOU THINK

GOD STILL BLESSES ILSHE USE.

SHE USED TO BE TOTALLY

AGAINST TITHING AND NOW SHE

IS OPEN TO THE NET TITHE.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

DON'T BE UNEQUAL YOLKED

TOGETHER WITH UNBELIEVERS.

YOU MARRIED SOMEBODY WHO IS

NOT A BELIEVER, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO BE FIGHTING ABOUT

STUFF LIKE THIS ALL OF THE

TIME.

HOW COME YOU'RE WASTING YOUR

MONEY ON THAT BUNCH OF

HYPOCRITES DOWN AT THAT

CHURCH -- YOU KNOW, THAT'S

WHAT THEY SAY.

YOU DON'T NEED THAT.

SEEKING A MATE, FIND

SOMEBODY WHO LOVES THE

LORD.

AND YOU CAN GO THROUGH LIFE

TOGETHER.

BUT IN TERMS IF YOUR WIFE --

IF YOU'RE THE HEAD OF THE

HOUSEHOLD -- YOU'RE SUPPOSED

TO BE -- DON'T BE QUIBBLING

WHETHER IT IS THE NET OR THE

GROSS.

IT DEPENDS ON YOUR FINANCIAL

SITUATION.

I THINK GOD ISN'T -- HE'S

NOT A PHILADELPHIA LAWYER.

AND HE IS NOT SOME

BOOKKEEPER.

HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

AND HE WANTS YOUR LOVE.

THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE GIVING.

THAT'S WH WHAT IS TITHE

IS.

YOU'RE GIVING HIM EVIDENCE

OF YOUR LOVE.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM MATTHEW

28: "COME UNTO ME, ALL OF

YOU WHO ARE HEAVY LADEN, AND

I WILL GIVE YOU REST."

TOMORROW, A STORY OF

DECEPTION. ALAN AND LISA

ROBERTSON TELL WHAT KEPT

THEIR MARRIAGE TOGETHER.

THAT'S THE "DUCK DYNASTY"

CLAN.

Wendy: THAT WILL BE

GREAT.
