On CBN Newswatch, April 7: White House under pressure over Iranian deal; Kenyan warplanes avenge Al-Shabab massacre; Deliberations begin in Boston Marathon trial; and more. Read Transcript


THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

GROWING PRESSURE TODAY ON

THE WHITE HOUSE'S SO-CALLED

HISTORIC UNDERSTANDING WITH

IRAN.

CONGRESS IS PRESSING FOR A

FINAL REVIEW OF ANY NUCLEAR

DEAL, AND THE ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER CALLS IT

DANGEROUS.

EVEN PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

ADMITTED THAT FINALIZING ANY

DEAL WILL BE EXTREMELY

DIFFICULT.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THE

LATEST.

Heather: THE PRESIDENT

SAYS THE FRAMEWORK FOR THE

POTENTIAL DEAL ALLOWS

UNPRECEDENTED INSPECTIONS OF

IRAN'S NUCLEAR FACILITIES,

CUTS ITS SUPPLY OF NUCLEAR

FUEL, AND LIMITS ITS ABILITY

TO PRODUCE HIGHLY ENRICHED

GERANIUM.

BUT HOW THE SANCTIONS WOULD

END IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE.

SANCTIONS HAVE HURT IRAN'S

ECONOMY, AND IRAN WANTS THEM

LIFTED IMMEDIATELY.

THE U.S. AND ITS ALLIES ARE

PUSHING FOR A SLOW PROCESS

THAT COULD TAKE MONTHS, AND

EVEN YEARS.

AND DESPITE THE PRESIDENT'S

PROMISES LAST WEEK, THE

WHITE HOUSE NOW ADMITS THAT

SEVERAL KEY STICKING POINTS

REMAIN BEFORE A FINAL

AGREEMENT CAN BE REACHED.

CONGRESS IS CALLING FOR A

FINAL SAY ON ANY DEAL.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT

CONGRESS IS IN THE MIDDLE OF

THIS, UNDERSTANDING, TEASING

OUT, ASKING THE IMPORTANT

QUESTIONS.

Reporter: PARKER HAS

THE SUPPORT OF CHUCK

SCHUMER, LIKELY THE NEXT

LEADER OF THE DEMOCRATS IN

THE SENATE.

AND OTHER DEMOCRATS THAT ARE

ALSO SUPPORTING THE BILL.

THAT WOULD ALLOW CONGRESS TO

CONSIDER, AND POSSIBLY

REJECT, ANY AGREEMENT WITH

IRAN.

BUT THE WHITE HOUSE IS

PUSHING BACK.

IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY

OF ANY PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES TO CONDUCT THE

FOREIGN POLICY OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

THERE IS A CONCERTED EFFORT

IN CONGRESS TO UNDERMINE THE

SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTPATION

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE

AGREEMENT.

Reporter: ISRAEL,

MEANWHILE, IS VOICING MAJOR

CONCERNS ABOUT THE PROPOSED

DEAL.

IT DOES NOT FORCE IRAN TO

STOP THREATENING ISRAEL, NOR

DOES IT REQUIRE THEM TO EVEN

RECOGNIZE ISRAEL'S

EXISTENCE.

IT ENDANGERS THE REGION,

THE WORLD, AND EVERYONE

LISTENING TO ME RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: LEADERS IN

TEHRAN LED PRAYERS CHANTING

"DEATH TO ISRAEL" AND "DEATH

TO AMERICA."

JUST ANOTHER POINT THAT

CRITICS ARE RAISING AS KEY

QUESTIONS STILL REMAIN ABOUT

ANY DEAL OVER IRAN'S

POTENTIALLY DEADLY NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: KENYAN WAR

PLANES BOMBED A SUSPECTED

al-SHABAAB TERRORIST CAMP

IN SOMALIA.

IT IS IN RETALIATION FOR THE

ATTACK THAT LEFT 148 DEAD AT

A KENYAN COLLEGE LAST WEEK.

THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS

SECRETARY, JOSH ERNST SAYS

THE U.S. IS SUPPORTING KENYA

IN ITS FIGHT AGAIN

AL-SHABAAB.

THEY TARGETING CHRISTIAN

STUDENTS AT THE KENYAN

COLLEGE.

ONE VICTIM SAYS IT IS ONLY

GOD'S MERCY THAT ALLOWED HIM

TO ESCAPE.

FOR ME TO SURVIVE, I

DON'T JUST TAKE IT LIGHTLY,

OR GOOD LUCK.

I AM PRAYING GOD IS GOING TO

MAKE ME UNDERSTAND WHY DID

HE LET ME ESCAPE FROM THE

CLAWS OF THE ENEMY.

AND THAT TELLS ME I HAVE AN

ASSIGNMENT THAT IS NOT

COMPLETE.

AND I HAVE TO ACCOMPLISH

THAT.

Efrem: NOW A MUSLIM

MEMBER OF KENYA'S PARLIAMENT

IS SPEAKING OUT AGAINST

al-SHABAAB, CALLING THEM

DEMENTED MONSTERS WHO DO NOT

REPRESENT MOST MUSLIMS.

AND HE ALSO SAID SOCIETY

MUST WORK TO HELP YOUNG

PEOPLE RESIST THE LURE

OF, QUOTE,"THIS EVIL

IDEOLOGY."

AND POPE FRANCIS IS CALLING

ON THE WORLD NOT TO LOOK THE

OTHER WAY WHILE THEY KILL

CHRISTIANS.

HE SAYS HE HOPES THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

WON'T STAND SILENT BEFORE

SUCH ATROCITIES.

> PRO-PALESTINIAN HACKERS

TARGETED ISRAEL WEBSITES ON

THE EVE OF THE HOLOCAUST

REMEMBRANCE DAY.

THE GROUP SAID IT WOULD

UNLEASH AN ELECTRONIC

HOLOCAUST.

ISRAELI EXPERTS SAY THE

ATTACKS DID LITTLE DAMAGE.

THE GROUP TARGETS ISRAELI

WEBSITE EVERY APRIL 7th.

THIS YEAR IT ATTACKED THE

WEBSITES OF A FEW DOZEN

MUSICIANS AND NON-PROFIT

GROUPS.

> JURY DELIBERATIONS ARE

UNDER WAY IN THE BOSTON

MARATHON BOMBING TRIAL.

THEY ARE DECIDING IF ZO ZOK

DISARN I TSARNAEV IS

GUILTY.

BUT HIS DEFENSE TEAM SAYS HE

WAS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF

HIS OLDER BROTHER AND SHOULD

BE SPARED THE DEATH

PENALTY.

HE MADE THIS POINT, IF

NOT FOR THE OLDER BROTHER,

HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN

PULLED INTO THIS.

Efrem: 17 OF THE

CHARGES HE IS FACING CARRIED

A DEATH PENALTY.

A SECOND ROUND OF

DELIBERATIONS WOULD

DETERMINE IF HE IS EXECUTED

OR SENTENCED TO LIFE IN

PRISON.

> ANOTHER REPUBLICAN JOINS

THE RACE FOR PRESIDENT.

RAND PAUL OFFICIALLY

ANNOUNCED HE IS RUNNING FOR

PRESIDENT.

HE IS THE SECOND FULLY

DECLARED CANDIDATE AFTER

TEXAS SENATOR TED CRUZ, BUT

HE COULD FACE AS MANY AS 20

REPUBLICAN RIVALS FOR THE

NOMINATION BEFORE THE LEAD

OFF TO THE IOWA CAUCASUS

EARLY NEXT YEAR.

> A FAMILY PIZZERIA IN

INDIANA THAT OBJECTED TO

CATERING SAME-SEX WEDDINGS

IS RECEIVING MASSIVE

SUPPORT.

THE O'CONNOR FAMILY HAD TO

CLOSE SHOP AFTER SERIOUS

THREATS, BUT SUPPORTERS PUT

TOGETHER A WEBSITE TO HELP

THEM, AND IT WORKED, WITH

DONORS SENDING IN MORE THAN

$800,000.

CBN TALK WITH BEN HOWE WHO

HELPED CREATE THE "GO FUND

ME" CAMPAIGN FOR THE

O'CONNORS.

WHAT REALLY GOT US INTO

THE IDEA WAS SOME INITIAL

PHONE CALLS WITH THE FAMILY,

EVEN AHEAD OF OF THE

TELEVISION INTERVIEW.

IT WAS CLEAR THEY WERE

REALLY CONCERNED FOR THEIR

LIVELIHOODS, FOR THEIR

BUSINESS, AND ALSO FOR

THEMSELVES.

THERE HAD BEEN A THREAT

EARLIER THAT DAY BY A SCHOOL

TEACHER OR SCHOOL COACH, WHO

SAID SHE WAS GOING TO BURN

THE PLACE DOWN.

AND SO THEY WERE JUST VERY

SCARED.

AND IT SPOKE TO ALL OF US.

AND WE JUST DECIDED

SOMETHING HAD TO BE DONE,

AND THIS SEEMED LIKE A GOOD

WAY TO HELP.

Reporter: AND SO THE

FAMILY WAS FEELING THAT

THEIR BUSINESS WAS NOT SAFE

AND THAT THEY NEEDED TO SHUT

DOWN FOR A TIME?

THAT'S RIGHT.

THE MEDIA WAS BASICALLY

CAMPED OUT IN FRONT OF THEIR

STORE.

IN FACT, PEOPLE ARE STILL

COMING BY TO THIS DAY.

THERE WAS A GAY INCLUSIVE

CHURCH THAT SANG HYMNS OUT

FRONT, WHICH OBVIOUSLY ISN'T

DAMAGING SPECIFICALLYLY,

SPECIFICALLY, BUT IT IS

DISTRACTING.

Reporter: THIS "GO FUND

ME" CAMPAIGN HAS DONE VERY

WELL TO DATE.

WHEN DID YOU REALIZE IT

WOULD BECOME SO BIG?

WE STARTED OUT WITH A

$25,000 GOAL.

THE IDEA WAS WE COULD GET

THEM PAST THE SITUATION SO

THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO CLOSE

THEIR DOORS FOREVER.

LATER THAT NIGHT WE HIT THE

GOAL OF $25,000.

WE SAID, LET'S JUST SEE HOW

THIS GOES.

AND WE RAISED THE CAP TO

$30,000 AND $35,000, AND

THEN WE WEREN'T ABLE TO KEEP

UP.

WE STOPPED RAISING THE CAP

AT $200,000.

ON FRIDAY, IT WAS AT

$842,592.

Reporter: AND WHY DO

YOU THINK PEOPLE RESPONDED

SO STRONGLY, BEN?

I THINK PEOPLE INHERENTLY

HATE SEEING PEOPLE BEING

BULLIED AND THEY WANTED TO

HAVE THEIR VOICES HEARD.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

WAS ASKED A HYPOTHETICAL

QUESTION, AND SAID NOT THAT

THEY WOULD REFUSE SERVICE TO

ANY GAY PERSON, BUT THEY

WOULD REFUSE TO CATER FOR A

GAY WEDDING.

IS THAT CORRECT?

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

THERE WAS A REPORTER AT ABC,

A LOCAL REPORTER, THAT WAS

LOOKING FOR SMALL BUSINESSES

TO ANSWER THE HYPOTHETICAL

QUESTION: WOULD YOU CATER TO

A SAME-SEX WEDDING?

THEY WERE JUST ASKED, IF

SOMEBODY ASKED YOU TO, WOULD

YOU DO IT?

AND THEY SAID NO.

IT WAS NOT A QUESTION OF

WHETHER OR NOT THEY WOULD

SERVE A GAY CUSTOMER.

A GAY CUSTOMER IS FREE TO

COME IN.

THEY'VESETTE SAITHEY'VE

SAID THAT MULTIPLE TIMES.

Reporter: HOW IS THE

FAMILY REACTING TO THIS

PHENOMENAL AMOUNT OF MONEY?

THE FATHER SAID TO GO

FROM SUCH INCREDIBLE

NEGATIVE TO SUCH INCREDIBLE

POSITIVE SO QUICKLY HAS BEEN

MORE THAN HE HAS KNOWN.

WITHIN A 24-HOUR SPAN, THEY

WENT FROM ANSWERING A SIMPLE

QUESTION ON THE NEWS TO

BELIEVING THAT EVERYTHING

THEY HAD WAS GOING TO BE

DESTROYED, TO SEEING AN

OUTPOURING OF LOVE FROM

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: REALLY

FASCINATING.

BEN HOW E WITH BLAZE TV,

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

Efrem: NATIVE AMERICAN

TRIBES HAVE TAKEN STEPS TO

DEFEND TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

NO MATTER HOW THE SUPREME

COURT VOTES.

MORE THAN A MILLION PEOPLE

WILL NOT RECOGNIZE SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

THE SAME-SEX COUPLES IN

NORTH CAROLINA, THE STATE'S

EASTERN BAN OF CHEROKEE

INDIANS UPDATED ITS LAW FROM

HAVING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

CEREMONIES ON TRIBAL LAND,

INCLUDING THE CHEROKEE

NATION IN OKLAHOMA AND THE

NAVAJO NATION.

> COMING UP, YOU'VE HEARD

THE

PHRASE "FOLLOW THE

MONEY," AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE

DONE JUST THAT AND IT HAS

TAKEN THEM TO SOME

UNLIKELYLY PLACES.

WE'LL HAVE THAT NEXT.

Efrem: JUST A FEW

MONTHS AGO, BACK IN JANUARY,

PRESIDENT OBAMA TALKED ABOUT

HOW THE STRONG ECONOMY IN

THE STATE OF UNION ADDRESS,

AND HE PROMISED THAT HIS

ECONOMIC POLICIES WOULD

CONTINUE TO WORK.

BUT THE LATEST REPORTS SHOW

MORE EVIDENCE THAT THE

ECONOMY IS SLOWING DOWN.

BARELY 100,000 JOBS WERE

CREATED LAST MONTH, AND THE

AMOUNT OF

MONEY PEOPLE BRING

HOME IN AN AVERAGE WEEKLY

PAYCHECK FELL.

SOME SAY PART OF THE REASON

FOR THE WEAKER ECONOMY IS

THE TOUGH WINTER AND PARTS

OF THE COUNTRY.

WHILE OTHERS SAY THE

STRONGER DOLLAR HAS HURT

U.S. BUSINESSES OVERSEAS.

> IT IS TAX SEASON, AND IF

YOU HAVEN'T COMPLETED YOUR

FEDERAL TAX FORMS, YOU HAVE

ONE WEEK TO GET THAT DONE.

IT IS A TIME OF YEAR WHEN

MANY PEOPLE THINK ABOUT

DECREASING THEIR TAX

BURDEN.

AND MANY PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY

DONE THAT.

THEY'RE TAKING A TAX HEIGHT,

MOVING FROM STATES WITH HIGH

TAXES TO STATES WITH LOWER

TAXES.

HEATHER SELLS HAS MORE.

Heather: WHAT IS IT

THAT CAUSES PEOPLE TO PICK

UP AND MOVE?

WHETHER IT IS ACROSS TOWN OR

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

YOU DON'T USUALLY HEAR TAXES

IN THE EXPLANATION, BUT NOW

DATA SHOWS IT IS ALL PART OF

THE EQUATION.

THE I.R.S. PROVIDED THE

EVIDENCE THAT ALLOWS US TO

SIMPLY FOLLOW THE MONEY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT NOT A

SURVEY, NOT A SAMPLE, NO A

FOCUS GROUP.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ACTUAL

RESULTS OF PEOPLE'S ADJUSTED

GROSS INCOME.

Heather: THE DATA

AUTHOR TRAVIS SIGHTS SAYS

SHOWS THE INCOME OF

43 MILLION AMERICANS, AND

WHERE THEY WENT BETWEEN 1995

AND 2010.

GENERALLY WHAT WE FIND IS

THAT TAXPAYERS OVER THE

LONG-TERM ARE FLEEING THE

HIGH-TAX STATES AND FLOCKING

TO THE LOW-TAX STATES.

Reporter: BROWN

DISCOVERED THAT THE NINE

STATES WITH NO PERSONAL

INCOME TAX GAINED

$146 BILLION IN INCOME.

AND THE STATES WITH THE

HIGHEST PERSONAL INCOME TAX

RATES, THEY LOST

$1.7 BILLION.

OVERALL, STATES WITH THE

LOWEST STATE AND LOCAL TAX

BURDENS BROUGHT IN ALMOST

$70 BILLION, AND THOSE WITH

THE HIGHEST BURDENS TOOK A

$139 BILLION HIT.

SOME OF THE SO-CALLED WINNER

STATES, LIKE TEXAS AND

FLORIDA, ARE WELL-KNOWN FOR

ATTRACTING NEW COMBERS.

ATTRACTING NEWCOMERS.

YOU MIGHT NOT THINK OF

TENNESSEE AS A TREND TEE

STATE TO MOVE TO, BUT IT IS

ONE OF NINE STATES

NATIONWIDE WITH NO PERSONAL

INCOME TAX AND AN OVERALL

LOW TAX BURDEN.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

COMING FROM THE MIDWEST,

WISCONSIN, ILLINOIS,

MICHIGAN, OHIO, AND A LOT OF

PEOPLE ARE COMING FROM THE

NORTHEAST.

Reporter: MARY JO PAIGE

DIRECTS MARKETING FOR

FAIRFIELD GLADE, A

RETIREMENT COMMUNITY.

THE NATURAL BEAUTY HERE

MAKES IT AN EASY SELL, AND

THE LOWER TAXES HELP TO

CLOSE THE DEAL.

KAREN AND DENNIS SHAW

ESCAPED 10 YEARS AGO FROM

THE D.C. SUBURBS AND

NORTHERN VIRGINIA.

WHEN I LEFT UP THERE, I

WAS PAYING $4,000 A YEAR IN

TAXES.

WHEN I MOVED DOWN HERE, MY

TAXES WENT TO $750.

Reporter: CHRIS AND ABE

MOVED FROM A SMALL HOUSE IN

CHICAGO TO A BEAUTIFUL

RETIREMENT HOME IN FAIRFIELD

GLADE.

HERE THEY CAN AFFORD EXTRAS,

LIKE A NEW PONTOON BOAT.

WE STILL HAVE A HOUSE IN

CHICAGO, WE PAY OVER $9,000

IN TAXES, AND IN THIS HOUSE

ON THE LAKE, WE PAY LESS

THAN $1400.

Reporter: IN FACT,

TENNESSEE IS IN THE TOP 10

STATES THAT SAW THE HIGHEST

INCREASE IN GAIN.

AND THOSE STATES WITH THE

HIGHEST TAXES, CALIFORNIA

AND CHICAGO.

HE THINKS TAXES ARE THE

NUMBER ONE REASON PEOPLE

MOVE, ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT

ALWAYS DISCUSSED.

THOSE STATES THAT THEY'RE

MOVING TO, SURE, CLIMATE IS

A PART OF THAT, BUT THAT'S

NOT THE REAL REASON.

IT'S THE ECONOMIC SITUATION

THEY FIND IN THOSE STATES.

Reporter: CRITICS

CONTEND THAT TAX CUTS PLAY,

AT MOST, A MINOR ROLE IN

MIGRATION.

THEY POINT TO RESEARCH THAT

SHOWS PEOPLE MOVE FOR

CLIMATE, NEW JOBS, AND

CHEAPER HOUSING.

OF COURSE THERE IS PLENTY OF

FOLKS ON THE GROUND IN

FAIRFIELD GLADE WHO WOULD

DISAGREE.

THAT IS PROBABLY EVEN

MORE IMPORTANT TO PEOPLE

THAN WHAT THE COST OF THE

HOMES ARE.

THE LONG-TERM LIVING

EXPHENS EXPENSES ARE THE

TAXES.

Reporter: BROWN

DESCRIBES IT MORE AS A

CORRELATION, AND BELIEVES

THAT POLICY-MAKERS SHOULD

NOT IGNORE STATISTICS THAT

DRAMATIC SHIFTS BETWEEN HIGH

AND LOW TAX STATES.

THEY'RE NOT THE ONLY

THING, BUT THEY DO WEIGH IN

WHEN IT IS TIME TO MAKE A

LIFETIME DECISION.

Reporter: FOR FAMILIES

LILIKE THE SHAWS, LOWER

TAXES HAVE BROUGHT PEACE OF

MIND AND A LITTLE EXTRA TO

SPARE.

WE HAVE HERE THE HOME WE

WANTED, THE LAND WE WANTED,

THE AMENITIES THAT WE REALLY

WANTED.

Reporter: FOR ALL

FAMILIES, THERE IS NO

DENYING THAT TAXES AFFECT

INCOME.

EXACTLY HOW THAT AFFECTS

WHERE THEY LIVE IS

DEBATABLE.

BUT ANY COMMUNITY THAT WANTS

TO ATTRACT PEOPLE SHOULD

CONSIDER LOW TAXES AS A

DRAW, JUST LIKE A BEAUTIFUL

GOLF COURSE OR MOUNTAIN

LAKE.

REPORTEDLY IN CUMBERLAND

COUNTY, TENNESSEE, HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: NEXT, BREAKING

THE CYCLE OF POVERTY IN

BOISE.

HOW CHURCHES ARE COMING

TOGETHER TO MEET THE NEEDS

IN THEIR COMMUNITY.

CHURCHES IN BOISE, IDAHO

ARE PROVIDING FOOD, CLOTHING

AND OTHER NECESSITIES FOR

PEOPLE NEED HELP IN THEIR

COMMUNITY.

IT IS PART OF A NETWORK

CALLED "LOVE IN BOISE."

IT DEMONSTRATES THE POWER OF

WHAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED

WHEN CHURCHES WORK

TOGETHER.

CHARLENE AARON BRINGS US THE

STORY.

Reporter: ANSWERING THE

BIBLICAL MANDATE TO MEET THE

NEEDS OF THE POOR IS A TOP

PRIORITY FOR CHURCHES

THROUGHOUT BOISE.

A NETWORK OF ABOUT 40

CHURCHES ARE CROSSING

DENOMINATIONAL LINES TO HELP

THOSE TRAPPED IN POVERTY.

THEY PROVIDE THE BASICS LIKE

FOOD AND CLOTHING, AND THEY

SPREAD LOVE IN THE NAME OF

CHRIST.

THAT'S WHY THEY CALL

THEMSELVES "LOVE, INC.,

BOISE."

RIGHT NOW WE SEE A LOT OF

SCHOOL SUPPLIES AND CLOTHES

FOR KIDS.

WE'LL SEE COATS AND BLANKETS

BECOME A HEAVY, HEAVY NEED.

Reporter: PEOPLE

LOOKING FOR ASSISTANCE CALL

A HOT LINE, AND OPERATORS

DIRECT THEM TO A MEMBER

CHURCH.

OUR CHURCH SPECIALIZES IN

DISHWASHING SOAP AND LAUNDRY

SOAP, AND SO WE GIVE AND

GIVE THAT WAY, AND LOVING

CAN HELP BEYOND WHERE WE CAN

HELP.

Reporter: THE BOISE

CHARPT CHAPTER IS ONE OF

SEVERAL MISSIONS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

THE MISSION IS TO HELP MEET

THE NEEDS IN THE COMMUNITY,

BUT IT ALSO CONCENTRATES ON

UNIFYING THE BODY OF CHRIST

FOR THE PURPOSE OF

TRANSFORMING LIVES.

THE BODY OF CHRIST IS

ONE, AND THE COMING TOGETHER

TO MEET NEEDS IS AN

EXPRESSION OF THE BODY OF

CHRIST.

ONE OF JESUS' PRAYERS IS

THEY WOULD BE ONE.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT

DEMONSTRATES THE

TRUTHFULNIT TRUTHFULNESS OF

THE GOSPEL MORE THAN WHEN

THE CHURCH COMES TOGETHER

AND DOESN'T SEE THEMSELVES

IN COMPETITION.

THE CHURCHES INDIVIDUALLY

WANT TO FILL THE MANDATE, TO

BE THERE FOR THE NEEDY AND

FOR THE POOR.

BUT EACH CHURCH

INDIVIDUALLY

CAN'T DO IT ALL.

BUT WHEN THEY WORK TOGETHER,

EVERY CHURCH BRINGS A LITTLE

BIT.

AND THEY EACH BRING THEIR

PART TOGETHER, AND WE CAN

FOLLOW THAT THROUGH "LOVE,

INC.," AND WE CAN DO IT

ALL.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THEIR WORK ISN'T JUST ABOUT

MEETING THE PHYSICAL NEEDS

OF PARTICIPANTS.

THE GROUP OFFERS A SIX-MONTH

PROGRAM CALLED "ABUNDANT

LIVING."

AND THAT'S WHERE THE

TRANSFORMATION PHASE COMES

IN, TEACHING PARTICIPANTS

HEALTHY SCHOOLS, SUCH AS

HEALTHY COOKING OR BALANCING

THEIR BUDGET.

JUST GIVING A HANDOUT IS

NOT BREAKING THE CYCLE OF

NEED.

IT IS INVESTING IN PEOPLE,

WALKING WITH THEM, NOT DOING

TO THEM, NOT DOING FOR THEM,

BUT DOING WITH THEM THE

THINGS THAT GLORIFY GOD AND

BRING THEM INTO

RELATIONSHIP, FIRST WITH US,

AND THEN, BY MODEL, INTO

THAT RELATIONSHIP WITH

CHRIST.

Reporter: SHE SAYS ITS

IMPACT REACHES BEYOND THE

WALLS OF THE CHURCH.

WHAT WE SEE IS THAT THE

COMMUNITY IS TAKING NOTICE.

AND WE SEE COMMUNITIES

SEEKING US OUT.

THE CITY AND THE COUNTY AND

THE STATE ARE ALL REALIZING

CHARITY IN ITSELF DOESN'T

WORK.

Reporter: PASTOR BREN

ANGELO OF REVOLUTION 22

CHURCH IS PART OF THIS LOVE

NETWORK.

HE AND HIS CHURCH OFTEN HELP

HOMEOWNERS WITH BUILDING

PROJECTS THEY CAN'T AFFORD

ON THEIR OWN.

IT IS NOT JUST HERE IS

SOME MONEY, GO AWAY.

IT'S LIKE, WE'RE GOING TO

ENTER INTERRELATIONALLY, AND

SHOW CHRIST BY BRINGING THE

SPIRIT OF GOD TO THOSE IN

NEED.

Reporter: THAT, SAYS

SHAW, IS WHY THE CHURCH IS

SO IMPORTANT.

THE CHURCH IS UNIQUELY

EQUIPPED TO BE THE ANSWER TO

THAT.

Reporter: THOSE

INVOLVED HOPE THAT THIS LOVE

IN THE NAME OF CHRIST

SPREADS THROUGH OTHER

COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE

NATION.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS,

BOISE, IDAHO.

Efrem: CBN CONTINUES TO

REACH THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN

CLUB AND

HOLDING

OUTREACH

EVENTS FOR ITS VIEWERS.

THEY ATTENDED A RECENT FUN

DAY EVENT IN CAMBODIA, NEAR

FINALLY THIS TUESDAY, A

MESSAGE I HOPE WILL

ENCOURAGE YOU AND INSPIRE

YOU TO POST, TAG, TWEET, AND

SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND

FOLLOWERS.

IN THIS EVER CHANGING WORLD,

IT SEEMS TO BE HARDER AND

HARDER FOR CHRISTIANS TO

TAKE A STAND FOR WHAT IS

RIGHT.

IT IS STILL BETTER TO STAND

ALONE FOR WHAT IS RIGHT THAN

TO STAND FOR WRONG WITH THE

CROWD.

THE BOTTOM LINE THERE, YOU

WILL CERTAINLY SLEEP BETTER

AT NIGHT KNOWING THAT GOD IS

PLEASED WHEN YOU STAND WITH

HIM.

MAKE THIS A TERRIFIC

TUESDAY.
