President and Founder of the Gloucester Initiative, Kay Coles James is working to train emerging young leaders in the African American Community. Read Transcript


SHE DIDN'T KNOW THE FULL

EXTENT.

A MUSIC MINISTER WITH A

SECRET.

I WAS THE BIGGEST POSER,

THE BIGGEST HYPOCRITE.

AND A LOVE CHILD...

THE WOMAN IS PREGNANT,

AND I'M PRETTY SURE I'M THE

FATHER.

PLUS THE HIDDEN FACE OF

PORN.

HE FILMED ME BEING

RAPED.

I LOST MY JOB, LOST MY

CHURCH, LOST MY FAMILY.

TWO BILLION PEOPLE COULD GO

TO HELL SO I COULD WATCH

NAKED WOMEN.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

I KNOW I'VE BEEN TELLING YOU

HOW WARM IT IS HERE AND

WE'VE GOT THE GULF STREAM

RIGHT BY HERE IN VIRGINIA

BEACH, AND I JUST TOLD

EVERYBODY IN THE NORTHEAST

TO MOVE.

I MAY HAVE TO TAKE SOME OF

IT BACK BECAUSE WE HAD A BIG

SNOW HERE IN VIRGINIA

BEACH.

AND HERE ARE SOME BEAUTIFUL

SHOTS IN FRONT OF OUR STUDIO

AND OUT AT THE CAMPUS OF

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

AND JUST TO SEE HOW PRETTY

IT IS.

REALLY, WITH THE SNOW IT HAS

BEEN LOVELY.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

WE'RE BROADCASTING FROM AT

THIS MOMENT.

AND THERE IS THE CAMPUS, AND

THERE IS THE ETERNAL FLAME

IN FRONT OF OUR

HEADQUARTERS.

AND YOU STILL OUGHT TO COME,

SNOW OR NO SNOW.

BUT IT DOES NOT GET WARMER.

BUT WE CAN'T EXACTLY BRAG

ABOUT THE SNOW HERE BECAUSE

BOSTON, A DIFFERENT STORY.

THEY CALL IT SNOWMAGEDDON.

THEY HAVE HAD OVER

100 INCHES OF SNOW IN

BOSTON, AND THAT CITY ISN'T

ALONE.

AND NOW ALL THE WAY FROM THE

NORTHEAST TO TEXAS, WE'RE

GETTING -- WHAT DO THEY CALL

IT, THE SIBERIAN EXPRESS IS

RUNNING THROUGH.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: OLDMAN WINTER

JUST KEEPS ON COMING.

A MIX OF SLEET, FREEZING

RAIN, AND SNOW FELL FROM

NORTHERN TEXAS, THROUGH THE

GULF COAST AND SOUTHEAST.

UP TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW FELL

IN PARTS OF VIRGINIA.

IT CAUSED TENS OF THOUSANDS

OF POWER OUTAGES, BURST

WATER PIPES, AND ACCIDENTS.

IN MAINE, A SNOW SQUALL

CAUSED A SEVEN-CAR PILEUP.

WE WERE DOWN TO PROBABLY

25 OR 30 MILES PER HOUR WHEN

I HIT THE MINIVAN, AND I

JUST TOLD THEM TO BRACE

THEMSELVES.

AND WE COLLIDED WITH THE

MINIVAN THAT WAS PARK THAT

HAD CRASHED INTO A PICKUP

TRUCK.

Reporter: REMARKABLY,

NO ONE WAS KILLED, BUT MORE

THAN A DOESN'T PEOPLE WERE

RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL.

WHILE BOSTON IS STILL

DIGGING OUT FROM A RECORD

100 INCHES OF SNOW THIS

WINTER, IN NEARBY NEW

HAMPSHIRE, DREW MULLENS SAYS

HE IS GLAD HE IS STILL

ALIVE.

HE WAS RAKING HEAVY SNOW

FROM THE ROOF OF HIS HOUSE,

BECAUSE HE DEPUT DIDN'T

WANT THE ROOF TO COLLAPSE,

AND THAT'S WHEN THE

AVALANCHE CAME.

I WAS THINKING OF MY WIFE

AND DAUGHTER AND I WAS

THINKING, I'M NOT GOING OUT

THIS WAY.

Reporter: HIS WIFE,

DEANNA, CAME TO HIS RESCUE.

I TRIED TO DIG HIM OUT AS

BEST I COULD WITH MY BARE

HANDS.

Reporter: BUT SHE

FINALLY GOT HIM OUT WITH

HELP FROM THEIR DAUGHTERS.

> AND A RARE EXPERIENCE IN

THE DEEP SOUTH, ENOUGH SNOW

TO ENJOY SLEDDING DOWN A

HILL IN ALABAMA.

IN VIRGINIA BEACH, PROBABLY

THERE IS ABOUT FOUR INCHES

OF SNOW, AND WE'RE GETTING A

LITTLE FREEZING RAIN.

SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED TODAY.

KIDS ARE LIKELY TO HAVE MUCH

MORE FUN THIS TIME BECAUSE

THIS IS A PACKING SNOW.

IT'S MUCH BETTER FOR MAKING

SNOWBALLS AND SNOWMEN.

MOST PEOPLE ARE JUST TRYING

TO MAKE THE BEST OF IT.

MOTORCYCLELING IN THE SNOW

MAY BE A CHALLENGE FOR THIS

ALABAMA MAN, BUT AT LEAST HE

CAN MAKE A BIKER'S SNOWMAN.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I THINK IT IS

FUN.

BUT BOSTON IS NOT FUN

ANYMORE.

IT IS HORRIBLE.

TERRY HAS HAD SORT OF A

VIRUS, AND SHE IS OUT THIS

WEEK, AND SHE'LL BE BACK

THIS WEEKMENT AN WEEK.

AND WENDY IS ON ASSIGNMENT,

COVERING AN INTERESTING

STORY ABOUT A GREAT MAN WHO

DIED RECENTLY.

AND WE'LL BE TELLING YOU

ABOUT THAT NEXT WEEK.

> IN OTHER NEWS,

SUPPORTERS OF THE ISLAMIC

GROUP ISIS HAVE BEEN

ARRESTED HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

AND GUESS WHAT THEY SAID

THEY WERE GOING TO DO?

THEY WANTED TO KILL

PRESIDENT OBAMA, WHO WE

UNDERSTAND IS THEIR FRIEND.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THREE BROOKLYN

MEN HAVE BEEN ARRESTED AND

ACCUSED OF TRYING TO JOIN

ISIS TO HELP MURDER

AMERICANS.

AND ONE SUSPECT HAD PLANS TO

BOMB NEW YORK.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Mark: THE THREE

SUSPECTS APPEARED IN NEW

YORK AND FLORIDA.

THEY'RE ACCUSED OF PLOTTING

TO JOIN THE TERROR GROUP

ISIS AND KILL AMERICANS,

INCLUDING PRESIDENT OBAMA.

THEY'RE CHARGED WITH

CONSPIRING TO SUPPORT ISIS.

THIS IS REAL.

THIS IS THE CONCERN ABOUT

THE LONE WOLF INSPIRED TO

ACT WITHOUT EVER GOING TO

THE MIDDLE EAST.

Reporter: POLICE

ARRESTED ONE THE MEN AT

J.F.K. AIRPORT.

THE POLICE AND THE F.B.I.

SAY HE WAS ABOUT TO HEAD TO

SYRIA.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY ADAM SAYS

EVERYONE INVOLVED NEEDS TO

TAKE A STEP BACK.

THERE IS THE RUSH TO

PROSECUTION TO ARREST AND TO

CONVICTION.

I JUST REMIND EVERYBODY

TODAY THAT THE PRESUM

PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE IS

STILL THE LAW OF THE LAND IN

AMERICA.

Mark: THE F.B.I. BEGAN

THEIR INVESTIGATION AFTER

ONE OF THE SUSPECTS, 24

ABDIRA ZURABAL ALLEGEDLY

POSTED ON AN ISIS WEBSITE

BACK IN AUGUST.

"I AM IN U.S.A., BUT IS IT

POSSIBLE TO DEDICATE

OURSELVES AT MARTYRS.

TO SHOOT OBAMA AND THEN

SHOOT OURSELVES.

WILL IT DO?"

INVESTIGATORS CLAIM KILLING

POLICE, F.B.I. AGENTS, AND

BOMBING CONEY ISLAND WERE

PLANS DISCUSSED BY THE

SUSPECTS.

THE F.B.I. BELIEVES THEIR

PLANS WERE VERY

PRELIMINARY.

THE F.B.I. DIRECTOR SAYS THE

AGENCY HAS CURRENT

INVESTIGATIONS INTO

HOME-GROWN RADICALS IN EVERY

STATE, AND A PORTION OF THEM

ARE ISIS SUPPORTERS.

THE ARRESTS ARE JUST THE

LATEST EXAMPLES OF THE

GROWING DANGERS OF LONE WOLF

TERRORISTS INSPIRED BY ISIS,

AND THE POSSIBILITY THAT

MORE SUCH TERRORISTS COULD

TRY ATTACKS IN THE FUTURE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

John: THE F.B.I. SAYS

MORE THAN 20 PEOPLE IN JUST

THE PAST YEAR HAVE BEEN

ARRESTED TRYING TO FLY FROM

THE U.S. TO JOIN ISIS.

> THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS

KIDNAPPED BY ISIS IN SYRIA

HAS RISEN TO 220 IN THE PAST

THREE DAYS.

AND THE SYRIAN DEMOCRATIC

ORGANIZATION SAYS ISIS

RAIDED 33 ASSYRIAN VILLAGES,

TAKING AS MANY AS 300 PEOPLE

ALONG THE WAY.

RIGHT NOW OFFICIALS CAN'T

CONFIRM THE EXACT NUMBER OF

HOSTAGES, BUT BOTH

HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATIONS

HAVE CONFIRMED REPORTS THAT

ISIS HAS BEEN TAKING

CHRISTIANS FROM A CHAIN OF

VILLAGES OVER THE PAST

COUPLE OF DAYS.

Pat: WHAT WILL HAPPEN

TO THOSE CHRISTIANS, THE MEN

WILL BE SLAUGHTERED AND

BEHEADED, AND THE WOMEN WILL

BE SOLD AS SEX SLAVES.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

GHASTLY THINGS.

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO WILL

NOT NAME THEM.

HE REFUSES TO SAY ISLAMIC

TERROR.

HE HAS ALL OF THESE

CONFERENCES AND MEETINGS,

AND NEVER SAYS IT.

SO MY FRIEND, RUDY GIULANI,

WHO WAS A POWERFUL MAYOR OF

NEW YORK, AND A CRUSADING

FRIE CRIMEFIGHTER AND ALL

OF THE REST OF IT, HE SAID,

I DON'T THINK OBAMA LOVES

AMERICA.

THERE WAS A POL -- ON POLL,

AND THEY SAID, WHAT ABOUT

IT, DO YOU THINK HE LOVES

AMERICA?

47% OF THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK

THAT POLL SAID, WE'RE NOT

SURE HE LOVES AMERICA.

KIND OF BAD.

AND MORT ZUCKERMAN -- AND I

BELIEVE HIS ORGANIZATION

OWNS THE DAILY NEWS IN NEW

YORK.

HE SAYS, OBAMA HAS BEEN

ASLEEP.

ON THESE INTERNATIONAL

THINGS, HE HAS BEEN ASLEEP.

HE GOES AGAINST ISRAEL.

HE DOESN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT

WHAT IS GOING ON IN SYRIA.

HE ALLOWS ISIS TO COME BACK

AND TAKE OVER IRAQ.

WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM IN

YEMEN.

AND HE GOES DOWN THE LIST OF

ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND HE

SAYS THE PRESIDENT IS LIKE

ASLEEP AT THE SWITCH.

HE SAID, I JUST WISH WE HAD

SOMEBODY WHO WAS ACTIVELY

ENGAGED IN FOREIGN POLICY.

ONE OF THE BIG FOREIGN

POLICY PROBLEMS WE'RE

DEALING WITH RIGHT NOW IS

OUR MOST STAUNCH ALLY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

NOW, YOU SEE THE ISRAELI

PRIME MINISTER -- IT'S NOT A

QUESTION OF A SETTLEMENT.

IT'S NOT A QUESTION OF AN

APARTMENT PROJECT IN

JERUSALEM.

IT IS A QUESTION OF THE

SURVIVAL OF THAT STATE.

IF THE IRANIANS GET NUKES,

THEY HAVE VOWED THEY WILL

WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE MAP.

SO HE IS FACING ANOTHER

HOLOCAUST LIKE WHAT HAPPENED

UNDER HITLER.

AND, JOHN, YOU CAN TELL US

MORE ABOUT THIS JUDGMENT

COMING VISIT.

John: PAT, ISRAELI

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU WARNS THAT MAJOR

WORLD POWERS HAVE GIVEN UP

ON TRYING TO STOP IRAN FROM

DEVELOPING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

THEY HAVE REPORTED PROGRESS

ON A DEAL THAT WOULD CLAMP

DOWN ON IRAN'S NUCLEAR

ACTIVITIES FOR 10 YEARS, AND

SLOWLY EASE RESTRICTIONS.

BUT NETANYAHU SAYS HE CANNOT

ACCEPT A NUCLEAR IRAN AND

WARNS IT WILL BE DANGEROUS

FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD.

THEY MIGHT ACCEPT THIS,

BUT I AM NOT WILLING TO

ACCEPT THIS.

AS PRIME MINISTER, I'M

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECURITY

OF THE COUNTRY AND THE

SECURITY OF ISRAEL'S

CITIZENS.

I MUST DO EVERYTHING I CAN

TO EXPRESS OUR OBJECTION AND

WARN OF THE DANGERS NOT JUST

FOR US, BUT ALSO TO OUR

NEIGHBORS AND THE ENTIRE

WORLD OF IRAN ARMING ITSELF

WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

John: AND, PAT,

NETANYAHU IS SCHEDULED TO

ADDRESS CONGRESS NEXT WEEK.

Pat: THE AMAZING THING

IS THAT SUSAN RICE, NOT

EXACTLY KNOWN FOR HER

ACCURACY, HAS COME OUT AND

SAID HOW BAD IT WAS THAT HE,

QUOTE,"BYPASSED THE WHITE

HOUSE."

SO SOME OF THE SENATORS AND

CONGRESSMEN HAVE AVOIDED

IT.

JOSEPH BIDEN IS CONVENIENTLY

OUT OF TOWN.

JOHN KERRY IS GOING TO BE

OFF SOME PLACE.

AND SOME OF THE OTHERS WILL

NOT SHOW UP.

WELL, IF THE DEMOCRATS TURN

ON THE JEWS IN AMERICA, THE

JEWISH BUSINESSMEN, WHAT'S

CALLED THE ISRAELI LOBBY HAS

BEEN STRONG SUPPORTERS OF

DEMOCRATS.

THEY HAVE NOT BE REPUBLICAN

SUPPORTERS.

THEY'VE SUPPORTED

DEMOCRATS.

SO IF THE DEMOCRATS IN

CONGRESS TURN THEIR BACK ON

THE PRIME MINISTER OF

ISRAEL, IT WILL HAVE

PROFOUND POLITICAL

IMPLICATIONS COMING UP INTO

THE NEXT ELECTION.

John: PAT, HERE AT

HOME, U.S. REGULATORS ARE

MOVING TOWARDS TOUGHER RULES

FOR INTERNET PROVIDERS.

THE F.C.C. IS SET TO APPROVE

A PLAN THAT PUTS THE

INTERNET UNDER THE SAME

REGULATIONS AT THE TELEPHONE

UNDER A LAW THAT PASSED IN

1934.

THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO MAKE

SURE INTERNET COMPANIES

CAN'T SLOW DOWN WEB TRAFFIC

BY GIVING PRIORITY TO BIG

WEBSITES.

CRITICS SAY NET NEUTRALITY

COULD MORPH TO HEAVY

HEAVY-HANDEDNESS.

SOME REPUBLICANS WANT TO

KNOW IF THE OBAMA WHITE

HOUSE IS WRONG.

THE REGULATIONS COULD BE

TIED UP IN THE COURTS FOR

YEARS.

THERE WERE MORE THAN FOUR

MILLION PUBLIC COMMENTS ON

THE ISSUE.

AND THAT'S THE LARGEST

NUMBER EVER ON A PROPOSED

RULE.

Pat: THE INTERNET IS A

MARVEL OF THE WORLD.

IT IS FREE.

AND THINK HOW MANY

BUSINESSES HAVE BEEN SPAWNED

ON THE INTERNET.

THINK HOW MUCH WEB TRAFFIC

THERE IS.

THINK HOW MUCH BUSINESS GOES

ON.

THINK OF ALL OF THE

CONVENIENCES THAT WE HAVE

NOW AS CONSUMERS.

AND THINK OF THE CONSTANT

IMPROVEMENT, THE SPEEDS, AND

THE THINGS THAT ARE BEING

DONE TO IMPROVE THE SERVICE

THAT WE HAVE ON THE

INTERNET.

NOW THEY'RE GOING TO TREAT

IT LIKE IT IS A WATER

COMPANY OR AN LE ELECTRIC

UTILITY WITH 1934

REGULATIONS.

THE OBAMA PEOPLE -- YOU

DON'T UNDERSTAND, THE

SOCIALIST AGENDA IS TO PUT

THEIR HANDS ON EVERYTHING.

THEY HAVE THEIR HANDS ON

HEALTH CARE AND THEY'RE

ABOUT TO RUIN IT.

AND NOW THEY'RE ABOUT TO

RUIN THE INTERNET.

THE F.C.C. HAS REFUSED TO

TESTIFY TO CONGRESS.

HE HAS DEFIED THEM.

HE IS GOING TO DO WHAT HE IS

GOING TO DO.

SO THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING.

I DON'T WANT TO LIVE UNDER A

DICTATORSHIP.

THIS IS THE LAND OF THE FREE

AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE.

LET'S FIGHT FOR IT.

IF YOU DON'T STAND UP AND

SAY SOMETHING, THEY'RE GOING

TO RUN OVER YOU LIKE A

STEAMROLLER.

THAT'S WHAT IS GOING ON.

OUR LIBERTIES ARE BEING

ERODED EVERY SINGLE DAY THAT

THOSE GUYS ARE UP THERE IN

WASHINGTON DOING WHAT THEY

DO.

OKAY.

> NOW, THIS IS SOMETHING

THAT IS DEEPLY EMBEDDED NOW

INTO THE CHURCH.

INTO PASTORS.

INTO MEN OF GOD.

WOMEN OF GOD.

THEY SAY IT'S A HARMLESS

VICE.

WELL, THAT HARMLESS VICE

HAPPENS TO BE WARPING A

GENERATION.

IN THEIR SENIOR YEAR,

THEY HAD HIGHER SCORES AS

PSYCHOPATHS.

WE ARE TEACHING OUR MALES TO

BE PSYCHOPATHS.

Pat: THE HIDDEN COST OF

PORNOGRAPHIC ADDICTION,

COMING UP NEXT.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE ALL

OF YOU WITH US.

$97BILLION, THAT'S THE NET

TAKE OF WHAT IS CALLED THE

PORNOGRAPHIC INDUSTRY.

WHERE DOES THAT TERM COME

FROM?

THE GREEK PORNEA IS THE WORD

FOR SEXUAL INTERCOURSE, AND

GRAPHY MEANS WRITING ABOUT

SEXUAL INTERCOURSE.

SO PORNOGRAPHIC AND

PORNOGRAPHY HAS TO DO WITH

PICTURES AND DISPLAYS OF

PEOPLE ENGAGED IN VARIOUS

TYPES OF SEX.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

IT HAS GOTTEN MORE AND MORE

GRAPHIC, MORE AND MORE

EXPLICIT, AND MORE AND MORE

PERVASIVE.

THERE WAS A TIME THAT PEOPLE

WHO WERE SO-CALLED VOYERS

HAD TO GO INTO SOME PEEP

SHOW IN TIMES SQUARE TO TAKE

A LOOK AT DIRTY PICTURES.

OR THEY HAD THESE BOOKS THEY

SOLD TO KIDS AND OTHERS THAT

HAD DIRTY PICTURES OF THEM

AND GRAPHICS AND THINGS LIKE

THAT.

NOW IT IS HIGHLY, HIGHLY

PRODUCED WITH THE FINEST

MINDS BECAUSE IT IS BIG

BUSINESS.

BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, HANDSOME

MEN, AND IT LOOKS SO

ALLURING.

WELL, DESPITE ALL OF THE

EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY,

MANY PEOPLE THINK THERE IS

NO EMOTIONAL COST TO

ENGAGING IN PORNOGRAPHIC

VIEWING.

BUT AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

THEY NOT ONLY HURT

THEMSELVES, THEY COULD BRING

SEVERE PAIN TO THEIR ENTIRE

FAMILIES AND ALTHOUGH WHO

SURROUND THEM.

Reporter: PORNOGRAPHY

HAS BECOME SO MAINSTREAM,

MUCH OF SOCIETY IS STARTING

TO BELIEVE IT IS HARMLESS.

WHAT YOU'LL OFTEN HEAR FROM

PORN USERS IS, "I'M NOT

HURTING ANYBODY," BUT THE

TRUTH IS THERE ARE VERY REAL

VICTIMS.

FOR INSTANCE, GIRLS FORCED

TO ACT IN PRODUCTION AGAINST

THEIR WILL.

WHAT HAPPENED TO ME WAS A

LOT OF VIOLENCE AND BONDAGE

AND BEING RAPED AND KICKED

AND BEATEN.

Reporter: NADINE, ON

THIS CONFERENCE, TALKED

ABOUT PEOPLE USING A SEXUAL

ABUSE FOR PRODUCTION.

THEY DROPPED A SNAKE IN

ON TOP OF ME AND CLOSED THE

LID.

HE FILMED MY TERROR, WHICH

HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SEX,

EXCEPT I WAS NAKED.

Reporter: THIS WOULDN'T

HAPPEN IF THERE WASN'T SUCH

AN "X"-RATED DEMAND.

AND THE CONSUMERS OFTEN HURT

THE ONES CLOSEST TO THEM,

LIKE THE WIFE OF LONG-TIME

ADDICT MATT RUSSELL.

IT WAS A CONSTANT

COMPANION OF MINE, DESPITE

MARRIAGE AND DESPITE

CHILDREN.

IT REALLY SUNK ME BECAUSE

I FELT THAT HE PREFERRED

JUST EVEN THE IMAGE OF

SOMEONE OVER ME.

AS A WOMAN, THAT IS A HARD

THING TO HANDLE.

IT FINALLY GOT TO THE POINT

WHERE I SAID, I'M DONE WITH

THIS, AND WE SEPARATED.

Reporter: CATHY DROVE

HER HUSBAND TO SEEK

THERAPY.

I HAD THIS GAPING WOUND

AND I KNEW IF I DIDN'T GET

SOME COUNSELLING, I WAS

GOING TO HATE MEN.

Reporter:THESE

HUSBANDS EVENTUALLY BROKE

FREE, AND BOTH COUPLES

RECONCILED.

KEVIN CONRAD LEADS AN

ACCOUNTABILITY GROUP AT THIS

CHURCH.

I HAVE SEEN MEN LOSE

JOBS -- NOT JUST JOBS, BUT

CAREERS.

I'VE SEEN THEM LOSE

FAMILIES, LOSE CHILDREN,

LOSE RELATIONSHIPS WITH

PARENTS AND SIBLINGS.

Reporter: THIS

COUNSELLOR SEES HOW THAT

DESIRE FOR THE "X" RATED

DESTROYS MARRIAGES.

BASED ON THE COUPLES I'VE

SEEN THROUGH THE YEARS, AT

LEAST 50% OF THE COUPLES

COMING FORWARD HAVE SOME

TYPE OF STRUGGLE WITH EITHER

PORNOGRAPHY OR INTERNET

AFFAIRS.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

TALKED TO PASTOR JAY DENNIS

ABOUT THE PROBLEMS WITHIN

CHURCHES.

HAVE MEN LOST THEIR JOBS AND

LOST THEIR WIVES OVER

PORNOGRAPHY?

ABSOLUTELY.

AND I HEAR IT CONTINUALLY.

I SEE IT IN THE CHURCH AND

AMONG PASTORS.

Reporter: SUCH AS TOM

WOLF, A YOUTH PASTOR, WHO'S

LIFE IN THE "X" RATED WORLD

LED TO A SERIES OF AFFAIRS.

I WAS FOUND OUT AND I

LOST MY JOB, LOST MY CHURCH,

LOST MY YOUTH PASTOR'S JOB

AND FOR A WHILE LOST MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: SO MANY YOUNG

CHRISTIAN MEN ARE NOW

ADDICTED THEY CAN'T BE ON

THE MISSION FIELD.

90%, 95% OF THEM ARE

TRAPPED IN PORNOGRAPHY.

AND THEY KET GET OU CAN'T

GET OUT OF IT.

WE ARE GOING TO STAND

BEFORE GOD AND WESTERNERS

AND SAY TWO BILLION PEOPLE

CAN DIE AND GO TO HELL SO I

CAN WATCH NAKED WOMEN ON THE

INTERNET.

Reporter: AND THIS

FORMER ADDICT SAYS ONE IN

THREE VISITORS TO ADULT

WEBSITES ARE WOMEN.

THIS IS ME AT THE AGE OF

10.

AND THIS IS BEFORE I WOULD

FIND MY BROTHER'S STASH OF

PORN IN MY BATHROOM, THAT

WOULD CATAPULT ME INTO AN

EIGHT-YEAR ADDICTION TO

PORNOGRAPHY.

Reporter: SHE TESTIFIES

HOW THIS TAKES PEOPLE INTO

DARKER AND RISKIER PLACES.

FOR WOMEN WHO STRUGGLE

WITH PORN, IT IS SAID THAT

80% OF THEM WILL ESCALATE

THEIR BEHAVIORS INTO

IN-PERSON ENCOUNTERS.

SOMETIMES IT LEADS TO

CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.

I KNOW OF EDUCATORS

VIEWING PORNOGRAPHY IN THEIR

CLASSROOMSMENCLASSROOMS.

I KNOW EDUCATORS WHO ARE

TAKING ADVANTAGE OF

CHILDREN.

Reporter: MARY ANN SEES

A CONSISTENT LINK BETWEEN

THOSE WHO VIEW PORN AND

THOSE WHO COMMIT VIOLENCE.

IN THEIR SENIOR YEAR,

THEY HAD HIGHER SCORES AS

PSYCH PATHS.

PSYCHOPATHS.

WE ARE TEACHING OUR MALES TO

BE PSYCHOPATHS.

Reporter: SOME SAY

THAT'S JUST WHO MEN ARE.

THAT IS ABSOLUTELY GOING

AGAINST EVERYTHING THAT

JESUS HAS TAUGHT US.

THEY CAN HELP IT AND CHOOSE

AGAINST THIS.

Reporter: DWYER SAYS

THEY KNOW IN THEIR HEARTS

THEY ARE WRONG.

WHY DO YOU HIDE IT FROM

YOUR WIFE?

WHY DO YOU HIDE IT FROM?

GOD?

BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT IS NOT

RIGHT.

THEY DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE

DEGRADATION THAT HAPPENS

INSIDE OF YOU, THE TEARING

AT YOUR SOUL AND RIPPING OUT

OF YOUR HEART WHEN YOU GET

FILMED LIKE THAT.

AND THEN TO KNOW THERE ARE

PEOPLE -- MOSTLY MEN, BUT

WOMEN -- THAT ARE GAWKING

AND STARING AND EYEING

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: DENNIS SAYS

VIEWERS CAN GET RID OF ALL

THIS BY FOLLOWING JOB.

JOB SAID, I MADE A

COMMENT ON MY EYES NOT TO

VIEW YOUNG WOMEN LUSTFULLY.

Reporter: AND JESUS

DIED ON THE CROSS TO SET US

FREE.

SO WE COULD CHANGE AND WE

WOULDN'T HAVE TO GIVE INTO

OUR SINFUL NATURES.

Reporter: SOME DECLARE

THEY CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT

PORNOGRAPHY.

THAT'S NOT SO.

THE TRUTH IS NO ONE IN

HISTORY HAS EVER DIED

WITHOUT PORNOGRAPHY.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS.

Pat: GREAT WORD, PAUL.

JOB SAID, I MADE A COVENANT

WITH MY EYES.

THIS IS A NATURAL TENDENCY.

THE SEX DRIVE IS NATURAL.

JUST LIKE TO EAT FOOD IS

NATURAL.

BUT GLUTENY IS NOT NATURAL.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE LIQUID OR

YOU WILL DIE, BUT THE

CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC

BEVERAGES CAN BECOME AN

ADDICTION.

THE DEVIL WILL TAKE WHAT IS

NATURAL AND USE IT TO

DESTROY PEOPLE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO BE A SLAVE

OF SATAN.

BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE

WATCHING, I WANT EVERYBODY

TO KNOW THIS IS AN ADDICTION

EVER BIT AS STRONG AS

COCAINE OR HEROIN OR ANY OF

THE OTHER ADDICTIVE DRUGS.

IT IS SOMETIMES HARDER TO

BREAK, ESPECIALLY FOR

WOMEN.

IT GETS TO BE A TERRIBLE

THING, BUT YOU CAN DO IT.

BUT THE QUESTION IS: ARE YOU

WILLING, IN A SENSE, TO DIE

TO THIS STUFF?

AND IF YOU ARE, THEN THE

LORD HIMSELF WILL SET YOU

FREE, BUT YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE

IT UP.

WE HAVE A LITTLE BOOKLET

CALLED "TRAPPED IN

TEMPTATION," AND WE'LL BE

GLAD TO GIVE IT TO YOU IF

YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM LIKE

THIS.

WE'LL SEND IT TO YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

COMING UP NEXT, WE'VE GOT

CONFESSIONS FROM SOMEBODY

WHO WAS ACTUALLY ADDICTED TO

PORN.

I WAS LOOKING AT

PORNOGRAPHY EVERY DAY.

I WAS THE BIGGEST POSER, THE

BIGGEST HYPOCRITE.

Pat: THAT'S NOT ALL

THIS MAN REVEALED.

HEAR THE REST OF THE

TEENAGE, COMING UP NEXT.

Pat: THE BIBLE,

SPEAKING OF JESUS, SAYS,

QUOTE," HE MADE A SHOW OF

HEM OPENLY, TRIUMPHING AT

HIS CROSS."

THE THING ABOUT PORNOGRAPHY

THAT CAUSES THEM TO STAY IN

SECRECY IS THEY'RE ASHAMED.

THEY'VE GOT THIS ADDICTION

SO THEY DON'T WANT TO TALK

ABOUT IT.

SO THEY COVER IT UP.

THEY COVER IT UP.

AND THE DEVIL WORKS IN

DARKNESS.

WHEN CHRIS BEAL CONFESSED

HIS DARKEST SECRETS TO HIS

WIFE, CINDY, HE REVEALED

THREE AT ONCE.

FIRST HE ADMITTED TO BEING A

PORN ADDICT.

AND THEN HE SAID HE HAD AN

AFFAIR.

AND FINALLY, HE REVEALED

THAT HIS MISTRESS WAS

ACTUALLY CARRYING HIS LOVE

CHILD.

IT'S BEEN 32 YEARS, AND I

CAN STILL TELL YOU EXACTLY

WHAT I LOOKED AT, 32 YEARS

LATER.

Reporter: CHRIS DEAL

WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD WHEN HE

SAW HIS FIRST PORN

MAGAZINE.

IT WAS THE CRAZIEST

THING.

THERE WAS A KID IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD WHO'S BROTHER

WORKED AT A GAS STATION AND

BROUGHT OLD ISSUES HOME.

Reporter: AS A

TEENAGER, CHRIS STARTED

BUYING HIS OWN MAGAZINES.

IT WASN'T UNTIL THE

INTERNET CAME OUT, IN LATE

COLLEGE, THAT IT WAS JUST

GAS ON A FIRE.

BECAUSE NOW YOU DON'T HAVE

TO GO ANYWHERE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH

THE HUMILIATION OF U BUYING

SOMETHING AT A STORE.

AND THAT'S WHERE IT JUST

WENT FROM KIND OF A CONSTANT

STRUGGLE TO AN ALL-OUT

ADDICTION.

Reporter: CHRIS MET

CINDY WHILE BOTH WERE

ATTENDING COLLEGE IN TEXAS.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CALL

IT LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

BECAUSE WE HAD SEEN EACH

OTHER BEFORE, BUT WE KNEW.

THAT FIRST TIME SPENDING

TIME TOGETHER, I KNEW IT WAS

IT.

Reporter: CHRIS AND

CINDY MARRIED, BUT CHRIS'

ADDICTION GOT WORSE.

IT FINALLY GOT TO THE

POINT WHERE I WAS LOOKING AT

PORNOGRAPHY EVERY DAY.

CINDY DIDN'T FULLY KNOW.

SHE KNEW IT WAS AN EVER ONES

ONCE IN A WHILE STRUGGLE.

Reporter: CHRIS WAS A

MINISTER OF MUSIC AT CHURCH,

AND HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME

AT WORK.

SO A LOT OF TIME HE WOULD

DO IT AT WORK.

SO I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS

GETTING BAD.

AND THEN IT WENT TO

LOOKING AT IMAGES TO

CHATTING TO PEOPLE.

AND THEN THE UNTHINKABLE.

I KNOWINGLY -- FULLY KNOWING

WHAT I AM DOING, I MET ONE

OF THEM.

I CAN NEVER SAY THAT I KEPT

MY VOW.

I BROKE MY PROMISE.

AND I WAS JUST IN THIS WORLD

OF DARKNESS.

AND I HATED MYSELF.

AND THEN I GOT UP ON STAGE

TO LEAD WORSHIP ON SUNDAY

MORNING.

AND I WAS JUST THE BIGGEST

POSER, THE BIGGEST

HYPOCRITE.

Reporter: CHRIS'

PASTOR, CRAIG, ENCOURAGED

HIM TO BE A MAN OF INTEGRITY

WITH NO SECRETS.

I RESONATE WITH

EVERYTHING HE IS SAYING, YET

I AM NOT THAT GUY.

I AM THE ANTITHESIS OF THAT

GUY.

AND I TRIED -- I TRIED TO

MANAGE IT.

I WAS ABLE TO DEAL WITH IT

FOR SIX WEEKS.

AND I JUST COULDN'T HANDLE

IT ANYMORE.

IT WAS AS THOUGH THE HOLY

SPIRIT HAD PUT ME IN A

CORNER AND SAID, WE'RE GOING

TO DEAL WITH THIS ISSUE.

HE CONFESSED EVERYTHING

TO ME.

I'VE BEEN UNFAITHFUL TO YOU

MANY TIMES, MANY DIFFERENT

WOMEN, MANY DIFFERENT PLACES

OVER THE COURSE OF ABOUT

TWO, TWO AND A HALF YEAR

PERIOD.

AND I'M JUST LISTENING.

YOU'RE KIDDING.

THIS HUGE WEIGHT IS NOW

GONE BECAUSE FOR THE FIRST

TIME SINCE I WAS EIGHT YEARS

OLD I AM A MAN WITH NO

SECRETS.

ON THE OTHER SIDE, I'VE

TAKEN THIS BURDEN -- AND

IT'S NOT LIKE IT JUST

RANDOMLY WENT AWAY.

BUT I'VE PLACED THE BURDEN

NOW ON MY WIFE.

AND IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH,

THE FINAL PART IS HE SAID,

ONE OF THE WOMEN IS

PREGNANT, AND I'M PRETTY

SURE I'M THE FATHER.

I FOUND IT TO BE THE WORST

DAY IN MY LIFE, AND THE NEXT

DAY I REALIZED, WELL, SO IS

THAT ONE AND THE NEXT ONE.

SO IT WAS A BUNCH OF WORST

DAYS IN MY LIFE ALL IN A

ROW.

AND THERE IS NOTHING I

CAN DO TO MAKE IT BETTER.

AND SO FOR THE FIRST WEEK WE

JUST SAT, SILENT, FOR HOURS

AND DAYS.

AND WE CRIED AND TALKED, AND

SHE ASKED QUESTIONS AND I

ANSWERED QUESTIONS.

Reporter: CHRIS ASKED

FOR CINDY'S FORGIVENESS.

CINDY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

OR WHERE TO GO.

CHRIS TOLD THE STAFF AT HIS

CHURCH WHAT HE HAD DONE.

HE LOST HIS JOB.

BUT HIS PASTOR DIDN'T LOSE

FAITH IN CHRIS.

HE WAS GOING TO LEAD OUR

CHURCH THROUGH THE TRUTH.

AND THAT PETRIFIED ME --

PETRIFIED ME.

I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED THE

BODY OF CHRIST LIKE I DID

THAT DAY.

IT WASN'T THE THINGS THAT

THEY SAID.

IT WAS JUST THERE WAS

GENUINE LOVE.

THEY LOVED US.

I HAD SO BETRAYED THEM, AND

THEY LOVED US.

AND THAT WAS THE FIRST

MOMENT THAT I KNEW GOD WAS

UP TO SOMETHING GREAT.

Reporter: BUT CINDY

STILL NEEDED TIME TO THINK

AND PRAY.

SHE LEFT FOR A FEW WEEKS TO

STAY WITH HER MOTHER.

WHEN I GOT THERE, MY MOM

SAID, HEY, I'VE MADE AN

APPOINTMENT FOR YOU TO SEE

BROTHER DAN, HER PASTOR.

OH, LORD, REALLY?

I HAVE TO SEE SOMEONE ELSE

TO TELL ME TO STAY MARRIED

AND BE A GOOD WIFE?

HE SAID, WHAT YOU'VE BEEN

THROUGH IS REALLY

DIFFICULT.

NO ONE WOULD BLAME YOU IF

YOU LEFT.

I'M, LIKE, YES.

AND THEN HE SAID, BUT -- OH,

THERE'S A BUT THERE.

BUT YOU ARE NOT A FOOL TO

STAY AND BE PART OF THE

REDEMPTIVE WORK OF GOD.

I THOUGHT, I TRUST YOU, GOD,

BUT I DON'T TRUST HIM.

ONCE A CHEATER, ALWAYS A

CHEATER.

THE WORLD SAYS I'M AN IDIOT

IF I STAY.

AND GOD WAS, LIKE, DO YOU

TRUST ME?

DO YOU TRUST ME?

DO YOU TRUST ME?

AND FINALLY I JUST SAID,

YEAH, YOU'VE NEVER LET ME

DOWN.

I DO TRUST YOU.

THAT MOMENT HIS PEACE JUST

WASHED OVER ME.

AND I JUST WILL NEVER FORGET

HAVING THIS RENEWED SENSE

OF, I THINK WE CAN DO THIS.

AND BEFORE SHE EVEN SAID,

I'M COMMITTED TO THIS

MARRIAGE, I COULD SEE WHAT

GOD HAD DONE IN HER HEART.

THAT WAS A GREAT DAY.

Reporter: CHRIS AND

CINDY STARTED OVER.

CINDY FORGAVE HIM

COMPLETELY, AND THEIR TRUST

IN EACH OTHER STARTED TO

GROW AGAIN.

THEY HAD TWO SONS OF THEIR

OWN.

CHRIS' THIRD SON LIVES WITH

HIS MOTHER.

AFTER A COUPLE OF YEARS,

CINDY WOULD JUST CRY BECAUSE

SHE LOVED HIM LIKE HER OWN

SON.

AND TODAY HE IS NOT A

REMINDER OF MY SIN.

HE IS A REMINDER OF THE

REDEMPTION OF GOD.

HE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST

JOYS IN THIS WHOLE TERRIBLE

STORY.

HE IS THE SCRIPTURE THAT

SAYS GOD WILL CAUSE ALL

THINGS TO WORK TOGETHER FOR

GOOD PERSONIFIED -- IS THAT

LITTLE BOY.

Reporter: CHRIS AND

CINDY WILL TELL YOU THAT

THEIR MARRIAGE ISN'T

PERFECT.

IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS IN

THE BUSINESS OF PERFORMING

MIRACLES TODAY.

HE IS STILL IN THE BUSINESS

OF DOING THOSE MIRACLES.

AND MY MARRIAGE IS JUST

THAT, A MIRACLE.

THERE IS NO HOPE FOR

FREEDOM, NO HOPE FOR

RESTORATION, UNTIL YOU CAN

JUST WADE IN THE WATERS OF

TRUTH, WHICH IS YOU'RE

ENOUGH AND HE LOVES YOU MORE

THAN ANYTHING.

AND THEN IN THE MIDST OF

THAT LOVE, HAVE THE COURAGE

AND THE TRUST IN A GOOD GOD

TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO

BE FREE, TO CONFESS IT, TO

BRING IT INTO THE LIGHT.

AND THEN SPEND THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE JUST LOVING AND

EARNING THE OPPORTUNITY TO

BE ONE OF THE GREAT STORIES

OF GOD.

Pat: THAT YOUR

CONSCIENCE MIGHT BE CLEARED

FROM DEAD WORKS, THAT YOU

MIGHT SERVE THE LIVING GOD.

OH, WHAT A STORY OF

REDEMPTION, CHRIS AND

CINDY.

CHRIS IS FREE, AND YOU CAN

BE FREE, TOO.

YOU CAN BE FREE.

GOD DOESN'T WANT TO CONDEMN

YOU.

GOD WANTS TO CLEANSE YOU,

THAT YOU MIGHT SERVE HIM.

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.

HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.

AND THE PLAN DOES NOT

INCLUDE DESTROYING YOU, NOR

DESTROYING YOUR MARRIAGE.

HE HAS A PLAN THAT YOU MIGHT

BE REDEEMED.

AND WHAT HE ASKS IS, WILL

YOU COME TO ME.

THE THING ABOUT CHRIS AND

CINDY IS THAT CHRIS GOT

TRUTHFUL.

HE OPENED UP.

HE MADE A SHOW OF THEM

OPENLY, AND THE LORD

TRIUMPHED IN HIS CROSS.

AND THAT'S WHAT CAN HAPPEN

TO YOU.

I WANT TRIUMPH IN YOUR

LIFE.

AND SO IF YOU WANT THAT,

WILL YOU CALL OUT TO HIM

WITH ME.

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN

PRAYER RIGHT NOW.

GOD'S GOING TO SET YOU

FREE.

DON'T HOLD ON TO THIS STUFF

ANYMORE.

TODAY WILL BE THE DAY THAT

YOU'LL BE SET FREE.

NOW, PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

JESUS.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU, LORD,

AND I CONFESS MY SIN.

I MAKE A SHOW OF THEM

OPENLY.

AND I BELIEVE THAT YOUR

CROSS TRIUMPHS OVER ALL OF

THE SIN AND THE EVIL.

AND I TAKE FROM YOU YOUR

FORGIVENESS, AND I TAKE YOUR

DELIVERANCE, AND FROM THIS

MOMENT ON, IN YOUR POWER, I

AM FREE.

THANK YOU, LORD, FOR

RESTORING MY HOME, MY

MARRIAGE, MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING.

I'VE GOT A LITTLE BOOK THAT

IS CALLED "LOVE AND

MARRIAGE."

IT WILL TALK ABOUT WHAT

GOD'S PERFECT WILL IS FOR

YOU.

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

CALL IN IF YOU WANT IT.

ALSO, "A NEW DAY," ABOUT

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

IF YOU JUST ACCEPTED THE

LORD, I'LL GIVE YOU THIS.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, I WANT

YOU TO CALL AND SAY, I

PRAYED WITH PAT AND I'M

FREE.

MAKE A SHOW OF THEM OPENLY.

TRIUMPHING IN THE CROSS.

1-800-759-0700.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU AND CARES ABOUT YOU AND

ONLY WANTS TO SEE THE

REDEMPTION OF GOD WORK OUT

IN YOUR LIFE.

STILL AHEAD, THE MAN AND THE

MANSION WHO CRADLED THE

CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.

PRESIDENTS AND HEADS OF

CORPORATIONS CALLED ON

DR. MOTEN TO STEP IN AND

HELP NAVIGATE THOSE

DIFFICULT WATERS.

Pat: WATCH HISTORY

UNFOLD ON THESE GROUNDS WITH

SCOTT ROSS AND A VERY

WONDERFUL PERSON.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

PROJECTS TO HELP THE

NIGERIAN PEOPLE.

> YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT WILL BE BACK WITH MORE

OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, IF THESE

WALLS COULD TALK, THEY WOULD

HAVE QUITE A FEW STORIES TO

TELL.

THOSE WALLS SO COLORS OF THE

CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT PASS

THROUGH ON THEIR WAY TO

MAKING HISTORY.

TODAY THE HOME IS BEING

RESTORED BY A DEAR FRIEND,

WHO WAS A FORMER HEAD OF OUR

SCHOOL OF GOVERNMENT.

KAY COLES JAMES.

AND SCOTT ROSS SAT DOWN WITH

KAY TO TALK ABOUT THE HOUSE

AND THE MAN WHO BUILT IT.

Reporter: ALONG THE

PICTURESQUE BANKS OF THE

RIVER, STANDS HOLLY KNOLL.

BUT HISTORY REMEMBERS IT AS

THE CRADLE OF THE CIVIL

RIGHTS MOVEMENT.

THIS PLACE IS ON THE

NATIONAL HISTORIC REGISTRY,

NOT BECAUSE OF THE ARC CHER,

BUARCHITECTURE, BUT BECAUSE

OF THE IMPORTANT THINGS THAT

HAPPENED HERE.

Reporter: IT WAS ON

THESE GROUNDS THAT FAMOUS

AFRICAN-AMERICANS, INCLUDING

MARTIN LUTHER KING,

CONCEIVED THE IDEAS THAT

TRANSFORMED THE NATION.

THAT IS THE TREE THAT WE

ARE TOLD THAT MARTIN LUTHER

KING SAT UNDER AND LOOKED

OVER THE YORK RIVER WHILE HE

PREPARED HIMSELF TO GO TO

WASHINGTON TO GIVE HIS

FAMOUS "I HAVE A DREAM"

SPEECH.

Reporter: WITHIN THESE

WALLS, THE IDEA FOR THE

UNITED NIGRO COLLEGE FUND

WAS FORMED, AS WAS THE

POLICY THAT DESEGREGATED

PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

WHEN C.E.O.s FROM THREE

COMPANIESMET, AN AGREEMENT

WAS REACHED THAT

DESEGREGATED LUNCH COUNTERS

MONTHS BEFORE LEGISLATION

WAS PASSED.

FROM THE DAY THE DOORS OF

HIS HOUSE WAS OPEN, THE

VISION ALWAYS WAS FOR RACIAL

RECONCILIATION, HOW TO

EDUCATE AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN

THIS COUNTRY.

Reporter: KAY COLES

JAMES, FORMER DIRECTOR OF

PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT FOR THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,

PURCHASED THE SITE IN 2005,

WITH PLANS TO RESTORE IT TO

ITS ORIGINAL PURPOSE.

BUILT IN 1945, HOLLY KNOLLS

HOME WAS HERE.

HE WENT ON TO HIGHER

EDUCATION AND THEN

ADMINISTRATION AT HAMPTON

UNIVERSITY BEFORE BECOMING

THE SECOND PRESIDENT OF

TOSKIGI INSTITUTE, NOW A

UNIVERSITY.

HE WAS ONE WHO BELIEVED

IN EDUCATION, AND HOW

EDUCATION COULD SET ONE FREE

AND OPEN UP NEW VISTAS AND

BOUNDARIES.

AND HE ALSO BELIEVED IN

SELF-SUFFICIENCY AND

INDEPENDENCE.

HE BELIEVED IN A STRONG WORK

ETHIC, AND MOST OF ALL, I

THINK THE SECRET TO

DR. MOTEN AND HIS SUCCESS

AND HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS IS

THAT HE WAS A GREAT MAN OF

FAITH.

Reporter: FROM THE

WORLD WAR I BATTLEFIELDS OF

FRANCE TO THE DELTA FLATS OF

THE 1927 GREAT MISSISSIPPI

FLOOD, DR. MOTEN ADVISED

FIVE USE PRESIDENTS DURING

TIMES OF NATIONAL CRISIS.

HE WAS SO WELL-RESPECTED,

THAT WHEN THE RACIAL

TENSIONS IN THIS COUNTRY

WERE AT THEIR HEIGHT,

PRESIDENTS AND HEADS OF

CORPORATIONS CALLED ON

DR. MOTEN TO STEP IN AND

HELP NAVIGATE THOSE

DIFFICULT WATERS.

Reporter: HE ALSO

SUFFERED THE INDIGNITIES OF

RACISM, ALONG WITH HIS

FELLOW BLACK CITIZENS.

AS THE KEY-NOTE SPEAKER AT

THE DEDICATION OF THE

LINCOLN MEMORIAL IN 1922,

DR. MOTEN WASN'T SEAT ALONG

SEATED ALONG THE DIGNITARIES

OF THE DAY, BUT, RATHER,

PLACED WITH THE COLOREDS.

HE WAS NOT HONORED TO SIT

WITH THE OTHER IMPORTANT

PEOPLE THAT DAY.

SO HE SUFFERED A GREAT DEAL85

OF RACIALINJUSTICE

HIMSELF.

AND I THINK ONE OFTHE

MODELS THERE IS HE STAYED

POSITIVE THROUGH IT, FOUND

THOSE INDIVIDUALS NATIONALLY

AND LOCALLY WHO ARE WILLING

TO MAKE PROGRESS AND WORKED

WITH THEM.

Reporter: AFTER HE DIED

IN 1940, HIS HOME REMAINED A

HUB FOR BLACK LEADERS

THROUGH THE CIVIL RIGHTS

ERA.

IT THEN FELL INTO DISREPAIR

UNTIL KAY REDISCOVERED IT?

I SAID HOW IS IT THAT

MONTACELLO IS TAKEN CARE OF,

HOW IS IT THAT PEOPLE GO TO

MT. VERNON AND ARE ABLE TO

LEARN AND WALK THROUGH THEIR

HISTORY, BUT HOW IS IT THAT

THE PLACE THAT IS KNOWN AS

THE CRADLE OF THE CIVIL

RIGHTS MOVEMENT HAS WINDOWS

BROKEN OUT AND VINES GROWING

UP AND THE ROOF IS OFF?

Reporter: THE DECAYING

STRUCTURE WAS DEEPLY

PERSONAL TO KAY.

HER CONNECTION TO THE

HISTORIC SITE GOES BACK TO

THE LATE 1950s AND HER

IMPOVERISHED CHILDHOOD.

I STARTED OUT IN THE

PUBLIC HOUSING PROJECTS OF

RICHMOND.

I HAD AN AUNT AND UNCLE WHO

WERE PART OF THE SOCIAL AND

INTELLECTUAL ELITE OF

VIRGINIA, AND PROBABLY EVEN

NATIONALLY.

AND I WOULD BE BROUGHT HERE

WITH MY COUSIN SO THAT I

WOULD BE A COMPANION FOR HER

WHILE THEY SPENT THE WEEK

HERE.

AND I HAVE WONDERFUL

MEMORIES OF BEING JUST A

VERY YOUNG CHILD, SITTING ON

THE FLOOR HERE WITH MY DOLLS

AND BOOKS.

AND ALL I REMEMBER IS THAT

THE BLACK PEOPLE WHO

GATHERED HERE -- I REMEMBER

THINKING THEY'RE SO SMART

AND THEY'RE SO TALENTED, AND

THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL.

AND I REMEMBERED THE FOOD

WAS GREAT HERE, TOO.

Reporter: IN THIS

RESTFUL PLACE, THEY PLANNED,

WROTE, AND REFLECTED TO

GATHER STRENGTH TO SPEAK,

SACRIFICE, AND EVEN DIE SO

CHILDREN LIKE KAY WOULD ONE

DAY HAVE A BETTER FUTURE.

WITH HER RETURN TO HOLLY

KNOLL A HALF CENTURY LATER,

SHE RESTORED THE SITE AND

FOUNDED THE GLAUSTER

INSTITUTE TO MENTOR ANOTHER

GENERATION OF MINORITY

LEADERS.

I THINK GOD PLACED IT IN

MY HEART TO RESTORE THE

PROPERTY AND THE VISION.

MY HUSBAND AND I FORMED THE

NON-PROFIT AND HAVE

DEDICATED OUR LIVES TO

RESTORING NOT ONLY THE

BRICKS AND MORTER, BUT ALSO

THE VISION AS A GATHERING

PLACE FOR RACIAL

RECONCILIATION, WHERE WE CAN

DEAL WITH THE IMPORTANT

ISSUES OF THE DAY, A PLACE

WHERE POLITICS ARE LEFT

ASIDE AND WE COME TOGETHER

AS PEOPLE WHO WANT TO FIND

SOLUTIONS.

Pat: THAT IS A

BEAUTIFUL STORY.

AND IT'S REAL.

AND FOR MORE FROM KAY COLE

JAMES AND THE GLAUSTER

INSTITUTE, GO TO CBN.COM.

> WELL, STILL TO COME,

WE'LL BE BRINGING IT ON WITH

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

JUDITH WANTS TO KNOW -- SHE

SAID, I ONCE HEARD THAT A

TEST OF SOMETHING IN THE

BIBLE BEING TRUE IS IT IS

MENTIONED THREE TIMES.

IS ITTRUE?

THAT WILL BE AN EASY ANSWER

TO THAT ONE.

Pat: WELL, NEARLY TWO

MILLION OF KENYA'S CHILDREN

ARE ORPHANS, LIKE

12-YEAR-OLD EDMOND.

WELL, WHEN WE MET HIM,

EDMOND WAS HITCHING RIDES ON

BUSES, SLEEPING ON THE

STREETS, AND EATING GARBAGE

FROM THE DUMP.

Reporter: EDMOND ALWAYS

DREAMED OF BECOMING A

DOCTOR, BUT WHEN HIS PARENTS

DIED, THE 12-YEAR-OLD WAS

SENT TO WORK.

I WENT TO TOWN TO SWEEP

HOUSES AND SHOPS AND COLLECT

SCRAP METAL TO SELL.

I GAVE THE MONEY TO MY

GRANDMOTHER.

Reporter: EDMOND WAS

ALWAYS HUNGRY, AND NO ONE

LOOKED AFTER HIM.

MY LIFE WAS SO HARD I

COULDN'T STAND IT ANYMORE.

I SAW A BUS COMING, SO I

SNUCK ON IT AND HID UND A

UNDER A CHAIR.

Reporter: HE SLEPT ON

THE STREETS AND ATE GARBAGE

FROM THE DUMP, WITH THE

OTHER HOMELESS CHILDREN.

THEN HE SAW SOME KIDS WHO

LOOKED HAPPY.

THE CHILDREN WERE FROM AN

ORPHANAGE SUPPORTED BY CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE."

WHEN WE NOTICED THEM, WE

ASKED THEM TO SHARE THE FOOD

THEY HAD.

Reporter: HERE AT THE

ORPHANAGE, MORE THAN 50

CHILDREN HAVE BEEN RESCUED

FROM WARS AND POVERTY.

WE LOVE THEM ALL.

SO WE TEACH THEM ABOUT GOD

AND INSTILL CHRISTIAN VALUES

IN THEIR HEARTS.

WE WANT THEM TO DO WELL

IN SCHOOL SO THEY CAN BE

INDEPENDENT ONE DAY AND HAVE

A GOOD QUALITY OF LIFE.

Reporter: E EDMOND IS

JUST HAPPY TO HAVE A HOME.

I FEEL GOOD HERE BECAUSE

I HAVE FOOD TO EAT, WATER TO

DRINK, AND CLOTHES TO WEAR.

BEFORE I CAME TO THIS HOME,

I DID NOT KNOW WHO JESUS

WAS, BUT I MET HIM HERE.

Pat: TERRY IS INVOLVED

IN "ORPHANS' PROMISE,"

THAT'S HER DREAM.

AND WE'VE BEEN DELIGHTED TO

EMBRACE IT.

IT IS A WONDERFUL THING.

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND

THOUSANDS OF ORPHANS AROUND

THE WORLD ARE BEING HELPED

BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE." SO

THAT'S ONE OF THE

SIGNIFICANT MINISTRIES OF

CBN.

WE HAVE A NUMBER WE'RE

ENGAGED IN HELPING, AND

THAT'S ONE OF THEM.

SO IF YOU WANT TO

PARTICIPATE, AGAIN, JUST

PICK UP THE PHONE AND SAY,

LOOK, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

I WANT TO DO SOMETHING TO

MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER

PLACE.

THE NUMBER IS THERE ON YOUR

SCREEN.

1-800-759-0700.

SAY, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

> OKAY, IT IS TIME FOR

QUESTIONS.

THIS IS "THE 700 CLUB," AND

WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

A LADY NAMED JUDITH SENT IN

A MESSAGE ON THE INTERNET:

"I HEARD ONCE THE TEST OF

WHETHER SOMETHING IN THE

BIBLE IS TRUE IS IT IS

MENTIONED THREE TIMES.

IS THAT TRUE?"

NO, JUDITH, IT IS NOT.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE TWO

WITNESSES.

TWO OR MORE WITNESSES.

NOT THREE, BUT TWO.

IT SAYS TWO OR MORE.

> OKAY, WILL IS SOMEBODY

NAMED GIA, WHO SAYS, "WHERE

DID YOU THINK WE ARE ALONG

THE END TIMELINE, AND WHAT

DOES THE BIBLE TEACH ABOUT

ANTI-CHRIST AS FAR AS COMING

FROM EUROPE?"

I THINK THE ANTI-CHRIST IS

GOING TO COME OUT OF THE

MIDDLE EAST.

AND I REALLY BELIEVE -- AND

I KNOW IT SOUNDS WEIRD --

BUT THE MORE YOU SEE IT, YOU

SEE THE PARALLELS.

AND I DO BELIEVE THAT THE

RISE OF RADICAL ISLAM IS THE

ANTI-CHRIST.

THEY ARE DOING EXACTLY WHAT

THE ANTI-CHRIST WILL DO.

AND THEY'RE SURROUNDING

ISRAEL.

YOU LOOK AT THE MUSLIM

COUNTRIES, IRAN AND SYRIA

AND I GUESS LEBANON NOW AND

TURKEY AND THE SUDAN AND ALL

OF THESE COUNTRIES.

THEY'RE SURROUNDING ISRAEL.

AND I DON'T THINK THIS

BUSINESS ABOUT EUROPE IS

WHERE THE ANTI-CHRIST IS

GOING TO COME FROM.

BUT, YOU KNOW, PROPHECY IS

STILL -- WE SEE THROUGH A

GLASS DARKLY, AND WE'RE GOT

VARIOUS POINTS OF VIEW.

CAR LIECARLENE SAYS, "DO

YOU THINK IT IS WISE TO KEEP

MONEY INVESTED IN STOCKS,

FEDERAL AND STATE BONDS, OR

DO YOU THINK IT IS BETTER

FOR US TO KEEP OUR MONEY AT

HOME BECAUSE OF THE

CONDITIONS AND ALSO TO AVOID

ANOTHER STOCK MARKET

CRASH?"

I THINK THE BEST PLACE FOR

YOUR MONEY IS TO GET SOME

DIVIDENDS, SOME EARNING FROM

A SOLID COMPANY.

THE MASTER LIMITED

PARTNERSHIPS THAT TRANSPORT

NATURAL RESOURCES AND SO

FORTH, I'VE BEEN A FAN OF.

THEY PAY PRETTY HIGH

DIVIDENDS.

JUST PLAIN OLD UTILITIES.

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO NEED

WATER, THEY'RE GOING TO NEED

ELECTRICITY.

THEY'RE GOING TO NEED ALL OF

THESE THINGS.

AND REGARDLESS OF WHAT

HAPPENS TO THE ECONOMY,

SOONER OR LATER PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE THOSE

THINGS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS, BUT

LET ME TELL YOU, WE'VE GOT

TO TRUST THE LORD.

THERE IS NO PERFECT

INVESTMENT.

I'VE BEEN INVESTING FOR MANY

YEARS, AND I'M IN CHARGE OF

A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT FUND IN

TERMS OF INVESTMENT.

I'VE DONE VERY WELL IN TERMS

OF INVESTMENTS.

BUT TO SAY THAT THIS IS A

SURE THING IS NO LONGER.

THE ONLY SURE THING I KNOW

OF IS IN HEAVEN.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

TEACHES.

DON'T PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE

MONTH AND RUST WILL CORRODE

IT AND THIEVES WILL BREAK IN

AND STEAL IT.

YOU PUT YOUR MONEY IN

HEAVEN.

ARLENE WANTS TO KNOW, "IF A

PERSON IS ON LIFE SUPPORT

WITH ORGANS FAILING AND

BRAIN-DEAD, WHERE IS THE

SOUL AND SPIRIT?"

I THINK THE SPIRIT IS THE

INDEFINABLE ESSENCE OF THE

HUMAN BEING.

WHO AM I TO SAY THAT THE

SPIRIT IS LEAVING.

I DON'T THINK THE SPIRIT

LEAVES UNTIL SUCH TIME AS

THE BODY IS DEAD.

I THINK LIFE SUPPORT --

THEY'RE STILL KEEPING HIM

ALIVE ARTIFICIALLY, BUT NONE

OF US KNOW.

SO HOW CAN I TELL YOU FOR

SURE ON SOMETHING LIKE

THAT.

BUT I THINK AS LONG AS THE

BODY IS ALIVE, THE SPIRIT IS

REMAINING WITH OUR BODY, AND

THE COMBINATION FORMS WHAT

IS CALLED THE SOUL.

BUT WHEN THE BODY DIES AND

THE SPIRIT LEAVES, THAT'S

ANOTHER ISSUE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PSALMS 84:

"FOR JEHOVAH GOD IS OUR

LIGHT AND OUR PROTECTOR.

NO GOOD THING WILL HE

WITHHOLD FROM THOSE WHO WALK

ALONG HIS PATH."

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

THE "700 CLUB," WATCH IT

TOMORROW, SAME TIME, SAME

STATION.

BYE-BYE.
