Rick used to run from his addictions, but now runs marathons to raise money for charity. Also, NASCAR driver Blake Koch’s lets God take the wheel whenever he races. Read Transcript


A SCHOOL ON THE

CUTTING-EDGE OF SCIENCE.

THIS PARTICULAR RADIATION

CAUSES CANCER CELLS TO KILL

THEMSELVES.

Wendy: AND

COOPERATION.

WE SHOULD FIND A WAY TO

REAL PEACE.

Wendy: AND THEN...

I WAS SO TRAPPED.

Wendy: A HITCHHIKER

LOSES HER WAY.

I WOULD DIE SOME HEINOUS

DEATH IN THE DESERT OUT

HERE, AND NO ONE WOULD EVEN

CARE ABOUT ME.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

WE JUST HAD NEWS THAT THE

IRANIANS ARE SENDING A

FLOTILLA OF BATTLESHIPS INTO

THE AREA AROUND YEMEN.

AND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

IT LOOKS FOR ALL OF THE

WORLD THAT THE SAUDIS AND

THE SUNNIS ARE SENDING AIR

POWER AGAINST THE HOUTHI

REBELS, AND IRAN IS NOW

BRINGING IN NAVAL POWER TO

COUNTER THE SAUDIS, AND IT

MAY BE THE BEGINNING OF A

MAJOR WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST

BETWEEN SUNNI AND SHI'A.

AND PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WARNING

ABOUT FOR A LONG TIME.

I DON'T KNOW IF MY CREW HAS

GOT ME A MAP YET TO SHOW YOU

WHAT IS GOING ON.

THERE IT IS.

THERE IS YEMEN.

NOW, YOU SEE THAT LITTLE

TEENY THING THERE, IT'S

CALLED THE DAB AL-MONDAB,

WHICH GOES UP INTO THE RED

SEA.

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE

PENINSULA, TO THE NORTH, IS

THE STRAITS OF HORMUZ.

THIS LOCKS UP THOSE TWO

CHOKE POINTS.

YOU SEE ONE AROUND YEMEN,

AND THAT LOCKS UP ABOUT 70%

OF THE WORLD'S CRUDE OIL

THAT COMES OUT OF THE

PERSIAN GULF.

IF THE SHI'AS AND THE

IRANIANS HAVE CONTROL OF THE

STRAIGHTS OF HORMUZ, AND IF

THEY CAN TAKE OVER ADEN AND

THE PORTS SURROUNDING THE

DAB AL-MONDAB, THEY COULD

HAVE A CHOKEHOLD ON OIL AND

OIL PRICES WILL SKYROCKET.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS A

SHOOTING WAR, AND THE

IRANIANS ARE GETTING INTO

POSITION TO DO IT.

IT MAY NOT HAPPEN, BUT WHO

KNOWS.

BUT IT HAS BEEN A LONG,

SIMMERING CONFLICT, AND THE

UNITED STATES, THROUGH THE

INEPTITUDE OF OUR PRESIDENT

HAS BEEN POURING OIL ON THAT

FIRE.

Wendy: AND MANY ARAB

NATIONS ARE TIRED OF WAITING

FOR THE UNITED STATES TO

ACT, SO THEY'RE TRYING TO

HELP THEMSELVES.

Reporter: THE U.S. HAS

STEPPED TO THE SIDELINES,

LEAVING IT UP TO COUNTRIES

LIKE TURKEY AND IRAN TO

BLOCK THE BIDS FOR POWER

THROUGHOUT THE REGION.

ON TUESDAY, THE TURKISH

PRESIDENT ERDOGAN MET TO

SIGN AGREEMENTS.

BUT THEY ALSO TALKED ABOUT

BRINGING PEACE TO YEMEN.

WE BOTH BELIEVE WE HAVE

TO WITNESS THE END OF WAR

AND BLOODSHED IN YEMEN AS

SOON AS POSSIBLE.

A FULL CEASE-FIRE HAS TO

HAPPEN IN YEMEN.

Reporter: WHILE TALKING

PEACE WITH TURKEY, IRAN

CONTINUES TO BACK FELLOW

SHI'ITES IN YEMEN, KNOWN AS

THE HOUTHIS, AND THEIR

STRUGGLE TO CEASE CONTROL OF

THE COUNTRY.

SAUDI ARABIA HAS RESPONDED

BY LAUNCHLY MILITARY

AIRSTRIKES AGAINST REBEL

POSITIONS.

THE ATTACKS ON TUESDAY

REPORTEDLY HIT A SCHOOL.

INJURED CIVILIANS WERE

TREATED AT A HOSPITAL IN

SANAA.

IRANIAN REVOLUTIONARY GUARDS

AND NOW ON THE GROUND IN

YEMEN.

ERDOGAN DIDN'T WANT TO POINT

FINGERS.

SO FAR 300 PEOPLE HAVE

DIED IN YEMEN, ALL OF THEM

WHO ARE MUSLIMS.

WHAT IS IMPORTANT FOR ME IS

ISLAM AND MUSLIMS.

Reporter: WHILE IN

TEHRAN, ERDOGAN WANTED TO

PLAY THE ROLE OF PEACEMAKER,

SO HE WAS UNWILLING TO TAKE

SIDES.

BUT TUR TURKEY IS DOING

THAT.

THEY ARE SUPPORTING TURKISH

REBELS.

AND IRAN IS BACKING ASSAD.

AND IRAN HAS SPREAD ITS

INFLUENCE TO KIRKUK, IRAN.

WHERE THEY JOINED THE

EFFORTS TO COMBAT ISIS.

THE JOINT FORCE DEFEATED

ISLAMIC FIGHTERS THERE AND

REGAINED CONTROL OF THE

TOWN.

MORE ISLAMIC STATE

ATROCITIES WERE DISCOVERED

ON TUESDAY WHEN IRAQI

OFFICIALS FOUND A MASS GRAVE

NEAR KIRKUK.

AND CHRISTIANS ARE STILL

SUFFERING AT THE HANDS OF

THE IRANIAN REGIME, AS MANY

AS 90, INCLUDING SAEED

ABEDINI, ARE IN PRISON FOR

SHARING THEIR FAITH.

AS IRAN PERHAPS MOVES TO

BUILD A PERSIAN EMPIRE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST, THE WHITE

HOUSE SAYS IT WILL DEFEND

SAUDI ARABIA AND ITS ALLIES

IF THEY'RE ATTACKED BY IRAN

OR ITS PROXIES.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU GET THE

PICTURE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN?

IRAN ON ONE SIDE.

IT IS NOW A DOMINANT PLAYER

IN IRAQ.

IT IS THE DOMINANT PLAYER IN

SYRIA.

IT IS THE DOMINANT PLAYER IN

LEBANON.

AND NOW IT'S THE DOMINANT

PLAYER IN YEMEN, WHICH IS

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SAUDI

PENINSULA.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT A

SQUEEZE PLAY ON THE SAUDIS,

ON THE SUNNI MUSLIMS

THROUGHOUT THAT AREA,

WHETHER IT IS KUWAIT OR THE

IMERITEMIRATES OR

WHATEVER.

THEY WANT COMPLETE CONTROL

OVER THAT REGION, AND

THEY'RE SAYING WE JUST

FINISHED A NUCLEAR AGREEMENT

WITH THEM.

ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL?

THE PEOPLE IN THE GULF ARE

SAYING, ARE YOU KIDDING?

ALL YOU'VE DONE IS GIVEN

THEM A PATHWAY OF UNFETTERED

NUCLEAR DOMINANCE AT OUR

REGION.

AND IF NAIR GOIN THEY'RE

GOING TO BE THROWING NUKES

AT US, WE'RE GOING TO BE

THROWING NUKES AT THEM.

SO NOW YOU'VE GOT THEM WITH

THEIR HANDS ON NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

DON'T PLAY IT LIGHTLY.

IT IS A BIG DEAL, AND IT

WILL SIMMER AND SIMMER AND

IT IS GOING TO EXPLODE.

THIS COULD BE THE TRIGGER

POINT -- IT DOESN'T HAVE TO

BE, BUT WE NEED TO WATCH IT

VERY, VERY CLOSELY.

NOW THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE

WE'VE LEARNED.

THE RENEWED SOVIETS, THE NEW

RUSSIA UN UNDER PUTIN IS

NOT JUST SITTING IDLYLY

BUY.

THEY'RE GAINING STRENGTH,

AND THAT IS RUSSIA.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: RUSSIAN HACKERS

WERE BEHIND THE ELECTRONIC

BREAK-INS OF THE STATE

DEPARTMENT IN RECENT MONTHS,

AND THEY USED THAT TO GET

INTO SENSITIVE AREAS OF THE

WHITE HOUSE COMPUTER

SYSTEM.

HACKERS WERE ABLE TO GAIN

ACCESS TO THINGS LIKE THE

PRESIDENT'S SCHEDULE.

THE RUSSIANS HAVE ALSO

REPORTEDLY STRENGTHENED

THEIR MILITARY.

A U.S. ADMIRAL SAYS MOSCOW

HAS DEVELOPED, QUOTE,"A FAR

MORE CAPABLE MILITARY THAN

THE FORMER SOVIET UNION

HAD."

WILLIAM GARDNY IS IN CHARGE

OF DEFENDING NORTH AMERICA,

AND SAYS RUSSIA IS DEPLOYING

THERE.

Pat: SOME MONTHS AGO I

WAS PRAYING, AND THAT WAS IN

THE HEIGHT OF THE SOVIET

UNION, AND RONALD REAGAN WAS

PRESIDENT.

AND THE LORD SPOKE TO ME,

AND HE SAID COMMUNISM IN

RUSSIA, THE SOVIET UNION, IS

GOING TO FALL.

AND I ANNOUNCED THAT AND

EVERYBODY SAID, YOU'RE

CRAZY.

OF COURSE THEY'RE NOT GOING

TO FALL.

THEY'LL BE HERE FOREVER.

BELLWELL, COMMUNISM FELL

UNDER GORBACHEV.

RONALD REAGAN HELD ON TO

STAR WARS, AND THE RUSSIANS

CAVED.

BUT WHAT THE LORD ALSO SAID,

AFTER THAT PERIOD OF TIME,

THEY WILL BE MORE

DANGEROUS.

PUTIN IS MORE DANGEROUS.

THE OLD MAN IN THE KREMLIN

KNEW AMERICAN POWER AND THEY

WEREN'T ABOUT TO TEST IT.

PUTIN IS READY TO TEST IT.

HE WANTS TO SHOW WHAT A

TOUGH GUY HE IS.

AND NOW THEY'VE HACKED THE

WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS.

THEY HAVE SENT ALL KINDS OF

INCURSIONS OF AIRCRAFT INTO

THE BALTIC AREA.

THEY HAVE MOVED INTO THE

CRIMEA AND TAKEN IT OVER.

THERE ARE INCURSIONS INTO

UKRAINE IN AN ATTEMPT TO

TAKE OVER UKRAINE.

AND PUTIN IS NOW DOING THE

UNTHINKABLE: HE IS RATTLING

NUCLEAR CAPABILITY, SAYING

THIS COULD PROVOKE A NUCLEAR

WAR.

THAT IS UTTER INSANITY.

WE HAVE MUTUALLY ASSURED

DESTRUCTION.

WE HAVE ENOUGH FIRE POWER TO

INCINERATE EVERYTHING IN

RUSSIA, AND HE KNOWS IT.

BUT HE IS WILLING TO PAY

BRICKSMANSHIP, AND THEY ARE

MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE OLD

SOVIET UNION.

JOHN?

John: PAT, HERE AT

HOME, A WHITE POLICE OFFICER

IN SOUTH CAROLINA IS BEING

CHARGED WITH MURDER IN THE

FATAL SHOOTING OF A BLACK

MAN AFTER EYE WITNESS VIDEO

WAS RELEASED TO THE MEDIA.

SOME MAY FIND THE VIDEO

GRAPHIC.

THE RECORDING THOSE THE

OFFICER, MICHAEL SLAGER,

SHOOTING WALTER LAMAR SCOTT

IN THE BACK SEVERAL TIMES.

IT SHOWS SCOTT RUNNING AWAY

AND DROPPING TO THE GROUND

AS HE IS REPEATEDLY SHOT.

THE INCIDENT STEMS FROM A

TRAFFIC STOP.

THE VICTIM'S FAMILY IS

ASKING FOR PRAYER.

I DON'T THINK THAT ALL

POLICE OFFICERS ARE BAD

COPS, BUT THERE ARE SOME BAD

ONES OUT THERE.

AND I DON'T WANT TO SEE

ANYONE GET SHOT DOWN THE WAY

THAT MY BROTHER GOT SHOT

DOWN.

WE DO KNOW THE TRUTH NOW.

AND I JUST ASK THAT EVERYONE

JUST CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR MY

FAMILY, THAT WE GET THROUGH

THIS, BECAUSE WE DO NEED

PRAYER.

BECAUSE PRAYER CHANGES

THINGS.

IT CHANGES THINGS.

AND JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED.

John: IN OTHER NEWS, A

FORMER MUSLIM AND AN

OUTSPOKEN CRITIC OF RADICAL

ISLAM IS TAKING HER MESSAGE

OF THE NEED FOR ISLAMIC

REFORMATION TO THE NEWS

MEDIA.

SPEAKING HERE IN WASHINGTON

ON TUESDAY, AYAAN HIRSI ALI

SAYS MUSLIMS NEED TO CHANGE

THEIR INTERPRETATIONS OF THE

QURAN AND THE HADIF.

A CHANGE SAYS SAYS WILL TAKE

DECADES.

SHE POINTS TO GROWING

EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE LIVING IN

THE MIDDLE EAST WHO ARE

CALLING FOR CHANGE.

THEY ARE NOW COMING TO

UNDERSTAND THAT THEY HAVE TO

TAKE ISLAMIC EXTREMISM

HEAD-ON.

THESE GOVERNMENTS, THE KING

OF JORDAN, YOU NAME IT --

THEY ALL FEEL THREATENED BY

ISLAMIC EXTREMISM.

AND SO THE TIME IS RIGHT TO

SAY, MAYBE NOW IS WHEN A

MUSLIM REFORMATION WILL TAKE

HOLD.

John: SHE ALSO LABELLED

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

MIDDLE EAST STRATEGY AS

INCOHERENT.

AND DESCRIBED IT AS A CLASH

OF CIVILIZATIONS.

MANY OF THE TOPICS SHE

COVERED ARE FROM HER MOST

RECENT BOOK, "HERTIC," WHICH

SHE DISCOVERE DISCUSSED IN

A RECENT INTERVIEW HERE ON

"700 CLUB."

> SENATOR RAND PAUL, A

STAUNCH LIBERTARIAN,

ANNOUNCED HIS PLANS TO RUN

WITH A STRONG MESSAGE FOR

THE WASHINGTON

ESTABLISHMENT.

DAVID BRODY BRINGS US THAT

STORY FROM LOUISVILLE,

KENTUCKY.

[APPLAUSE]

David: IT HAD ALL OF

THE SIGNS OF A PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN, THE AMERICAN

FLAG.

AND AN ANTI-WASHINGTON

MESSAGE.

I HAVE A MESSAGE!

[APPLAUSE]

A MESSAGE THAT IS LOUD

AND CLEAR AND DOES NOT MINCE

WORDS.

WE HAVE COME TO TAKE OUR

COUNTRY BACK.

THE WASHINGTON MACHINE THAT

GOBBLES UP OUR FREEDOMS AND

INVADES EVERY NOOK AND

CRANNY OF OUR LIVES MUST BE

STOPPED.

David: WHILE THE

MESSAGE HITS TRADITIONAL

THEMES, LIKE I.R.S. REFORM

AND A FLAT TAX, HE IS

POSITIONING HIMSELF AS A

DIFFERENT KIND OF RUSSIAN.

REPUBLICAN.

HIS APPEAL TO MILLENNIALS

AGAINST UNLAWFUL SEIZURES.

THIS STRATEGY ADDS UP TO

BUILDING A COALITION THAT

PAUL HOPES WILL POWER HIM TO

THE PRESIDENCY.

HE HAS THE SUPPORT OF FORMER

CONGRESSMAN J.C J.C.

WATTS.

THE OLD TRADITIONAL

ESTABLISHMENT, GUYS HAVE

INITIALLY GOTTEN THERE, BUT

WHY DO WE DO THE SAME OLD

THING THE SAME OLD WAY.

WHILE RAND PAUL'S

LIBERTARIAN MESSAGE MAY

APPEAL TO YOUNGER AMERICANS,

BUT THERE IS PART OF HIS

OVERALL STRATEGY THAT SHOULD

NOT BE OVERLOOKED.

AND THAT IS COURTING THE

ALL-IMPORTANT EVANGELICAL

VOTE.

FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF

YEARS, HE HAS BUILT

RELATIONSHIPS BEHIND THE

SCENES WITH KEY EVANGELICAL

POLITICAL PLAYERS.

LAST WEEK CBN NEWS CAPTURED

PAUL TALKING TO PASTORS

ABOUT MATTERS OF FAITH AND

POLITICS.

WE NEED A REVIVAL IN THE

COUNTRY, YOU KNOW?

WE NEED ANOTHER GREAT

AWAKENING WITH TENT REVIVALS

OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

SAYING, YOU KNOW, REFORM ARE

SEE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN

IF WE DON'T REFORM.

David: WHEN WE VISITED

THE PAUL FAMILY IN THEIR

HOME TWO YEARS AGO, HIS

WIFE, KELLY, WAS ALREADY

TRYING TO GET HER MIND

AROUND A PRESIDENTIAL RUN.

IT IS A CONTACT SPORT.

IT IS VERY ROUGH.

YOU DO HAVE TO PUT YOURSELF

OUT THERE.

I THINK IT IS WORTH IT IN

THE END, FOR ALL OF THE

OPPORTUNITIES AND TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

I BELIEVE THAT RAND CAN MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

David: HIS

SUPPORTERS

IN KENTUCKY ARE CONVINCED

RAND PAUL IS A DIFFERENT

PERSON AND WILL MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

IT IS TIME FOR PRISON

REFORM.

I THINK IT IS THAT WILL

REALLY GET YOUNG VOTERS TO

GO OUT FOR IT.

BUT I THINK HIS POLICY AS A

WHOLE WILL MAKE EVERYONE

COME TOGETHER.

IN REGARDS TO HELPING TO

FIX SOME OF THE CONDITIONS

OF THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN, YOU

KNOW, EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT,

HOUSING, AND THE BIGGEST

THING, RIGHTS.

HE IS TALKING THINGS THAT WE

WANTED TO HEAR.

NOW WE'RE WAITING FOR HIM TO

DO IT.

David: RAND PAUL HAS

HIS DETRACTORS, TOO.

CRITICS SAY HE IS TOO SOFT

ON FOREIGN POLICY, AND

ASSERTING AMERICA'S MILITARY

MIGHT AROUND THE WORLD.

ONE HURTLE THAT PAUL IS

GOING TO NEED TO MANEUVER IN

HIS QUEST FOR THE

PRESIDENCY.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, IN

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY.

IF YOU'RE PLANNING A

SUMMER VACATION THIS YEAR,

YOU SHOULD SAFE A GREAT DEAL

OF MONEY BECAUSE THE ENERGY

DEPARTMENT PREDICTS GAS

PRICES WILL BE THE LOWEST IN

SIX YEARS.

THEY WILL BE EXPECTED TO BE

$1 A GALLON THAN LAST YEAR.

PAT, I'M SURE MANY PEOPLE

WILL THINK THAT IS WELCOME

NEWS.

Pat: IT IS WELCOME TO

EVERYBODY, EXCEPT THE OIL

COMPANIES.

WHO ARE HAVING SERIOUS,

SERIOUS PROBLEMS.

BIG NEWS, BY THE WAY, THE

COMPANY THAT TOOK ON BRITISH

GAS -- SHELL OIL COMPANY --

IS GOING TO ACQUIRE -- IT

LOOKS LIKE A $60 BILLION

DEAL TO TAKE ON BRITISH

GAS.

SO THE BIG ONES ARE GETTING

BIGGER.

THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

THESE OIL COMPANIES TO START

GOBBLING UP THEIR WEAKER

NEIGHBORS.

WELL, HERE IS WENDY WITH

WHAT IS NEXT.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

COMING UP, A LESSON IN

CO-EXISTENCE AT ONE OF THE

TOP UNIVERSITIES IN ISRAEL.

Reporter: IT WOULD SEEM

THAT YOU COULD BE A MODEL

BETWEEN JEWS, ARABS,

WHATEVER -- IS THAT TRUE?

HOPEFULLY.

OF COURSE.

Wendy: HEAR HOW THESE

STUDENTS ARE LIVING IN PEACE

WITH EACH OTHER, AFTER

THIS.

Pat: EL REAL, I THINK

THAT MEANS LINE OF GOD.

IT'S A TOWN IN WHAT IS

CALLED THE WEST BANK.

AND YOU HEAR ABOUT SO-CALLED

SETTLEMENTS, UNTIL YOU GO TO

EL REAL, AND YOU SEE AN

INCREDIBLE CITY, HIGH-TECH

CITY, MANUFACTURING PLANTS.

BUT IN ADDITION TO ALL OF

THAT, THERE IS AN

OUTSTANDING UNIVERSITY WHERE

ISRAELI, JEWISH, AND ARAB

STUDENTS WORK AND STUDY

TOGETHER.

SO WHY HAVE U.S. GOVERNMENTS

IN THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT

BOYCOTTED IT?

THAT JUST SHOWS US HOW

STUPID THEY ARE.

SCOTT ROSS BRINGS US THAT

STORY.

Reporter: THIS IS

ARIELLE UNIVERSITY.

ESTABLISHED IN 1982, THE

SCHOOL SOUGHT TO IMPROVE

HIGHER EDUCATION HERE,

ESPECIALLY IN THE SCIENCES,

ENGINEERING, AND HEALTH.

WE'RE STANDING IN FRONT OF

NOW A PARTICLE ACCELERATOR.

YES.

Reporter: WHAT IS THE

PURPOSE OF A PARTICLE

ACCELERATOR?

DOES EVERY HOME NEED ONE?

WE DO HAVE A LITTLE ONE

IN EVERY HOME.

IF YOU HAVE A MICROWAVE

OVEN.

IN THAT YOU HAVE THAT AND

THAT CREATES RADIATION.

Reporter: THIS

PROFESSOR TOLD ME THERE ARE

ONLY A FEW OF THESE MACHINES

IN THE WORLD.

THE MAIN RESEARCH WE

ACTUALLY HAVE OCCURRING HERE

NOW IS CANCER RESEARCH.

WE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THAT

PARTICULAR RADIATION CAUSES

CANCER CELLS TO KILL

THEMSELVES.

Reporter: PUT THEM ON A

SUICIDE MISSION.

EXACTLY.

BUT ALL OF THE HEALTHY CELLS

ARE ALIVE AND WELL.

Reporter: THE

UNIVERSITY'S HOME IS ARIEL.

WHAT SOME CALL A WEST BANK

SETTLEMENT AND TERRITORY

PALESTINIANS WANT FOR A

FUTURE STATE.

IT IS ALSO A LAND PROMISED

TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS AN

ETERNAL INHERITANCE IN THE

BIBLE.

BUT YOU HAVE BEEN BOYCOTTED

AT TIMES?

WE HAVE BE BOYCOTTED.

Reporter: WHO IS

BOYCOTTING YOU?

THE EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS,

THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT.

Reporter: BUT THE

UNIVERSITY REPRESENTS A

MODEL FOR CO-EXISTENCE.

15,000 ISRAELI, JEWISH, AND

ARAB STUDENTS STUDY HERE

TOGETHER WITHOUT A PROBLEM.

I SPOKE WITH A VARIETY OF

THE STUDENTS.

SHIRA, A JEWISH WOMAN FROM

NEW YORK, AFRAD, A JEWISH

STUDENT, AND YASSER, AN

ISRAELI ARAB, AND YOSI,

WHO'S PARENTS IMMIGRATED

FROM ETHIOPIA.

I WAS LOOKING TO WHERE

THERE WAS A GOOD PSYCHOLOGY

PROGRAM, WITH AN ECLECTIC

STUDENT BODY, AND I FOUND IT

HERE.

Reporter: ANY OF THE

REST OF YOU?

BECAUSE OF THE

PROFESSIONAL DEPARTMENT

HERE, AND ESPECIALLY IN THE

COMMUNICATIONS.

THE PEOPLE HERE ARE SO

WARM AND HAPPY.

AND THE TEACHERS, TOO.

IT IS A SMALL UNIVERSITY, SO

THEY CAN GIVE GOOD CARE TO

EVERY STUDENT THEY SEE.

Reporter: DO YOU AGREE

WITH WHAT HE IS SAYING ABOUT

THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE

RELATIONSHIPS?

TOGETHER, THE ATMOSPHERE

AND MY RELATIONSHIP WITH

OTHER PEOPLE IS VERY GOOD.

I DON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEM

WITH ANYONE HERE.

Reporter: DO ANY OF YOU

GET ANY HASSLES OR PROBLEMS

FROM FAMILY MEMBERS BECAUSE

YOU'VE CHOSEN TO COME TO

SCHOOL HERE?

THERE ARE A LOT OF

HOSTILE ARABS AROUND HERE,

AND THERE IS A LOT OF

INCIDENTS AROUND HERE.

SO THE PARENTS ARE AFRAID

FOR THEIR CHILDREN.

Reporter: IT WOULD SEEM

THAT YOU COULD BE A MODEL

FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY

BETWEEN JEWS, ARABS,

WHATEVER.

IS THAT TRUE?

HOPEFULLY.

I THINK SO.

OF COURSE.

IN MY APARTMENT, NEXT

DOOR IS ARAB PEOPLE, AND WE

HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP.

WE DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM AT

ALL.

Reporter: ARE YOU

SURPRISED BY HOW EFFECTIVE

YOU GUYS ARE?

NOT SURPRISED.

I HAVE TO BE PART OF THE

SYSTEM HERE THAT SENDS A

MESSAGE TO EVERYONE.

PEOPLE REMEMBER THIS PLACE

FROM BAD TIMES, HARSH TIMES,

WHEN THINGS WERE ROUGH.

BUT NOBODY REALLY COMES HERE

TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS, SO THEY

DON'T REALLY KNOW.

Reporter: THAT'S WHY

WE'RE HERE.

MAYBE IT WILL CHANGE

SOMETHING NOW.

BECAUSE NOW PEOPLE REALLY

THINK IT IS A VERY HARD

PLACE OR NOT A SAFE PLACE,

BUT IT IS NOT TRUE.

Reporter: CHANCELLOR

ORGED CREDITS THE

UNIVERSITY'S SUCCESS FOR

CREATING AN INFORMAL

ATMOSPHERE WHERE STUDENTS

SEE EACH OTHER EYE TO EYE.

Reporter: DO YOU HAVE

ANY CONFLICTS HERE IN THE

UNIVERSITY?

NOT AT ALL.

THERE WAS NO ONE EVENING OR

ONE DAY OF TENSION BETWEEN

JEWS AND ARABS THAT STUDY

HERE.

Reporter: DESPITE ITS

CUTTING-EDGE RESEARCH,

PASTORAL SETTING AND CAMPUS

LIFE, SOME SEE ARIEL

UNIVERSITY AS A

CONTROVERSIAL PLACE.

Reporter: HAVE YOU HAD

PROBLEMS WITH THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY OR

WITH OTHER ISRAELIS?

WE DON'T HAVE PROBLEMS

WITH OTHER UNIVERSITIES AND

RESEARCH INSTITUTES.

WE HAVE REAL PROBLEMS WITH

MANY GOVERNMENTS.

FIRST OF ALL IN EUROPE AND

PART OF THE AMERICAN

GOVERNMENT, I.E., THE STATE

DEPARTMENT, THAT TRIES TO

BOYCOTT US, FORMALLY OR

INFORMALLY.

Reporter: WHY?

BECAUSE THEY THINK WE

DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT, AS

JEWS, TO LIVE HERE IN

SOMALIA.

Reporter: DO YOU HAVE

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE, FOR

PEACE FOR ISRAEL?

I'M SURE ONE DAY WE WILL

HAVE PEACE WITH OUR ARAB

NEIGHBORS.

BASED ON THESE

UNDERSTANDINGS, WE SAY WE

SHOULD FIND A WAY TO LIVE IN

PEACE.

Reporter: SCOTT ROSS,

ARIEL UNIVERSITY, SOMALIA.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, IT IS A WONDERFUL

PLACE.

YOU READ THAT WE HAVE TO

MOVE OUT OF THOSE

SETTLEMENTS.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A PUNCH OF

TENTS WITH SOME BEDAWINS

WITH SOME SHEEP AND GOATS.

THIS IS A THRIVING, MODERN

CITY, BEAUTIFULLY

LANDSCAPED, BEAUTIFULLY

ORGANIZED, AND ONE OF THE

BEST UNIVERSITIES IN THE

WORLD.

AND THESE DEMOCRATS WHO HAVE

NEVER BEEN THERE GET

TOGETHER AND SAY WE NEED TO

GIVE THOSE SETTLEMENTS

BACK.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THE

PALESTINIANS GET IT?

THEY WILL IMPOSE STRICT

SHAR'IA LAW ON THE PEOPLE.

THEY WILL CRUSH THE

INDEPENDENT SPIRIT OF THAT

UNIVERSITY.

THEY WILL DESTROY ITS

INFRASTRUCTURE, AND THEY

WILL DESTROY ARIEL.

FOLKS, THAT IS NOT A

SETTLEMENT.

IT IS A MODERN, THRIVING

CITY OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO

BE FREE.

AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING WE

CAN DO IS ADD OUR VOICE IN

SUPPORT OF IT, BUT DON'T LET

THOSE PINHEADS IN THE STATE

DEPARTMENT MAKE DECISIONS

THAT ARE IN ERROR, AND THAT

IS IN ERROR, THAT THEY

WOULD, INDEED, BRING SOME

KIND OF SANCTIONS AGAINST

THIS GREAT UNIVERSITY.

IT IS INSANITY, BUT INSANITY

REIGNS IN WASHINGTON.

BY THE WAY, THEY CUT THE

POWER OFF THE OTHER DAY, AND

ALL OF THE LIGHTS WENT OUT.

GOOD FOR THEM.

MAYBE IF SOMEBODY -- I DON'T

KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE

SUBSTATION --

Wendy: IT WENT OFF,

THOUGH.

Pat: ALL OF THE LIGHTS

WENT OUT.

OKAY, WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: PAT IS OWN FIRE

TODAY.

COMING UP, THE LONG ROAD

TREKKED BY THE MARATHONER

KNOWN AS THE BAREFOOT

RUNNER.

IF I DID THIS, I WOULD

DIE SOME HEINOUS DEATH IN

THE DESERT HERE AND NOBODY

WOULD EVEN CARE ABOUT ME.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

GOT HIM BACK ON TRACK,

NEXT.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS A GREAT DAY, AND WE'RE

GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

DEPENDING ON THE SEASON,

DICK RUBERS FEET CAN BE IN

THE FRIGID SNOW OR SLIGHTLY

SMOULDERING ON HOT ASPHALT.

DICK DOESN'T WEAR SOCKS.

HE DOESN'T WEAR SHOES.

HE ENJOYS RACING BAREFOOT,

AND ONE DAY AFTER BEING

HOOKED ON DRUGS AND ALCOHOL,

DICK FOUND OUT WHY HE WAS

RUNNING IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Reporter: DICK RABER

ISN'T LIKE MOST MARATHON

RUNNERS.

HE COVERS THE 26 MILES ON

BARE FEET.

I RAN 18 MARATHONS WITH

SHOES.

AND THEN I STARTED RUNNING

BAREFOOT MARSIONS, AND

MARATHONS, AND IT REALLY

FORCED ME TO RUN BETTER,

ALLOWED ME TO RUN WITH

BETTER FORM.

Reporter: HE GREW UP

WITH A FATHER WHO CHEATED ON

HIS MOTHER AND COULDN'T HOLD

DOWN A JOB.

THEY HAD TO LIVE IN FIVE

DIFFERENT STATES BEFORE RICK

TURNED 14.

IT REALLY FED INTO MY

INSECURITY, HAVING TO START

NEW SCHOOLS.

I BELIEVE THAT IT WAS JUST

VERY HARD FOR ME TO FIT IN.

IN MY FORMATIVE YEARS.

Reporter: DRUGS HELPED

HIM ESCAPE HIS INSECURITIES

AND TO FIT IN.

HE WAS SMOKING MARIJUANA,

TAKING L.S.D., AND ANYTHING

ELSE HE COULD GET HIS HANDS

ON.

ONE DAY HIS BROTHER INVITED

HIM TO CHURCH.

WHILE THERE, HE SAYS HE FELT

COMPELLED TO FOLLOW JESUS.

BUT SOON HE WAS BACK TO HIS

OLD HABITS AND FELT WORSE

THAN BEFORE.

I TOTALLY FELT LIKE A

FAILURE.

I TOTALLY FELT LIKE I HAD

GIVEN UP ON MYSELF.

I WAS HORRIFIED THAT I WAS

ADDICTED TO THE THINGS THAT

I THOUGHT I COULD NEVER BEEN

ADDICTED TO.

Reporter: RICK JOINED

THE NAVY, BUT AFTER 10

MONTHS, HE WENT AWOL AND WAS

DISCHARGED.

WITH NO DIRECTION, HE HIT

THE HIGHWAYS WITH A BACKPACK

AND WANDERED AIMLESSLY

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

I HITCHHIKED FROM FLORIDA

TO CALIFORNIA AND BACK.

I LIVED IN MISSIONS.

I LIVED IN PLACES AND WORKED

DAY LABOR.

Reporter: AT TIMES,

RICK WOULD THINK ABOUT A

BETTER LIFE, ONE FREE OF HIS

ADDICTIONS.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME IN

NEW ORLEANS, I WAS IN A

VACANT LOT, AND I HAD TWO

MATTRESSES PROPPED UP,

TEEPEE--STYLE.

AND I TEEPEE-STYLE, AND IT

WAS RAINING AND COLD AND

MISERABLE.

AND I THOUGHT, GOD, IF

YOU'RE THERE, RESCUE ME.

Reporter: WHILE

HITCHHIKING, RICK CAUGHT A

RIDE WHO INVITED HIM TO

CHURCH.

HE SAYS IT WAS THERE HE

EXPERIENCED GOD'S LOVE.

HE ALSO STOPPED DRINKING AND

USING DRUGS.

I WALKED WITH GOD FOR A

YEAR AND A HALF, AND IT WAS

THE MOST EXCITING TIME OF MY

LIFE.

Reporter: BUT RICK

NEVER GOT HELP FOR HIS

ADDICTIONS.

EVENTUALLY HE STARTED

DRINKING AGAIN.

HE WAS IN AND OUT OF CHURCH

AND STRUGGLING.

HE WANTED GOD AND HIS

ADDICTIONS, TOO.

I KNEW JESUS CHRIST WAS

THE ANSWER BY THAT POINT,

BUT I WAS STILL SO

ADDICTED.

I WAS STILL SO TRAPPED.

Reporter: RICK MARRIED

AND HAD THREE CHILDREN, BUT

HE WAS DRINKING HEAVILY.

AFTER HE WAS BUSTED FOR A

D.U.I., HIS WIFE DIVORCED

HIM.

AGAIN, HE DECIDED TO RUN AND

DROVE TO LAS VEGAS TO DRINK

HIMSELF TO DEATH, BUT

SOMETHING STOPPED HIM.

I GOT A WORD FROM WHAT I

CALL NOW, KIND OF LIKE A

WORD FROM GOD IN MY HEART,

SAYING THAT IF I DID THIS, I

WOULD DIE SOME I IGNORAMUS

DEATH OUT HERE IN THE

DESERT, AND NOBODY WOULD

EVEN CARE ABOUT ME.

AND GOD DESPERATELY WANTED

ME TO GET BACK TO KANSAS

CITY TO SOBER UP.

I REMEMBER SHAKING AND

TREMBLING, AND POURING OUT

THE VODKA IN THE PARKING

LOT.

AND I WAS SAYING, GOD, I

WANT TO LIVE AGAIN.

I WANT TO LIVE AGAIN.

Reporter: RICK DROVE

HOME AND STARTED GOING TO

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS.

THERE HE FINALLY REALIZED

WHY HE HAD BEEN RUNNING.

I DIDN'T LIKE THAT I KNEW

DEEP DOWN IT WAS JESUS

CHRIST BECAUSE THEN I WOULD

HAVE TO ADMIT I WAS WRONG,

THAT I WOULD HAVE TO OWN UP

TO MY MISTAKES, AND ALSO

THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PUT MY

SECURITY IN HIM.

AND THEN I JUST SAID, GOD

FORGIVE ME.

FORGIVE ME OF LIVING THIS

SELFISH LIFE, THINKING THAT

I COULD CONTROL MY DESTINY.

THINKING THAT I COULD LIVE

ABOVE ADDICTIONS.

THINKING THAT I COULD LIVE

BEYOND YOU.

THAT'S WHEN THINGS STARTED

TO CHANGE DRAMATICALLY.

Reporter: RICK

COMPLETED A.A., AND HAS BEEN

CLEAN EVER SINCE.

HE EARNED A COLLEGE DEGREE

AND GOT A STEADY JOB AND

MARRIED REBECCA.

HE IS ALSO A CHAPLAIN AT A

LOCAL RESCUE MISSION WHERE

HE TELLS THE HOMELESS MEN

THERE, THAT NO MATTER WHERE

YOU'VE BEEN, THERE IS HOPE

IN JESUS CHRIST.

I RAN FROM GOD FOR

YEARS.

AND NOW I RUN WITH GOD.

I RUN TO HIM.

HE IS THE ANSWER TO ALL OF

LIFE'S PROBLEMS.

Reporter: RICK RAN HIS

60-SECOND BAREFOOT MARATHON

IN JERUSALEM.

HE RUNS TO RAISE MONEY TO

HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST

LIKE HIM.

IF WE RUN TO HIM, HIS

ARMS OF OPEN.

YOU MAY NOT THINK THEY ARE

RIGHT NOW, BUT IF YOU MAKE

THAT FIRST STEP, IF YOU GET

OUT OF YOURSELF ENOUGH TO

DRAW NEAR TO GOD, HE IS

GOING TO DRAW NEAR TO YOU.

THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

Pat: DRAW NEAR TO HIM.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS:

DRAW NEAR TO ME AND I'LL

DRAW NEAR TO YOU.

YOU'RE OUT THERE CRYING,

HELP ME, HELP ME, HELP ME.

BUT ARE YOU REALLY LOOKING

TO THE SOURCE?

GOD IS SO POWERFUL.

HE CAN DO EVERYTHING.

YES, HE CAN TAKE AWAY

ADDICTION TO DRUGS.

HE CAN TAKE AWAY

ALCOHOLISM.

HE CAN TAKE AWAY ANYTHING

ELSE THAT IS BOTHERING YOU.

HE CAN TAKE AWAY SEXUAL

ADDICTION.

HE CAN MAKE YOU WHOLE.

THE QUESTION IS: DO YOU WANT

IT?

HE IS HOLDING OUT HIS HAND

AND SAYING, COME UNTO ME.

I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU.

COME UNTO ME. TRUST ME AND

I'LL MAKE EVERYTHING RIGHT

IN YOUR LIFE.

IF YOU WANT THAT, JUST CALL

ON HIM.

SAY, YES, LORD, I RECEIVE

YOU.

I TAKE YOU AS MY LORD.

AND I TAKE YOU AS MY

SAVIOR.

AND HE WILL SAY, YES, CHILD,

COME HOME.

IF YOU WANT FURTHER HELP,

WE'VE GOT A NUMBER.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

KYOU CAN CALL IN.

SOMEBODY WHO HERE WHO LOVES

YOU AND WHO CARES ABOUT

YOU.

LET'S GO BACK TO WENDY.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT, STILL

AHEAD, AN OPERATION THAT

BROUGHT A SMILE TO THE FACE

OF A LITTLE BOY, AND ONE TO

HIS GRANDPARENTS AS WELL.

PLUS, PAT'S GOING TO ANSWER

YOUR BURNING QUESTIONS.

KIM SAYS, "HOW CAN I

COMMUNICATE WITH MY DEAD

BOYFRIEND?

CAN HE HEAR ME WHEN I

PRAY?"

HE'LL TACKLE THAT AND MUCH

MORE, NEXT.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

KANSAS HAS BECOME THE FIRST

STATE TO BAN DISMEMBERMENT

ABORTIONS IN THE SECOND

TRIMESTER.

THE DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL

RIGHT TO LIFE SAYS THOSE

TYPES OF ABORTIONS TEAR

APART UNBORN BABIES LIMB

FROM LIMB, AFTER THE CHILD

HAS A BEATING HEART, BRAIN

WAVES, AND MORE.

THE GOVERNOR SAYS HE HOPES

OTHER STATES FOLLOW KANSAS'

EXAMPLE.

TWO ABORTION RIGHTS GROUPS

HAVE HINTE HINTED THEY MAY

CHALLENGE THE LAW IN COURT.

SUNDAY'S PREMIER OF "A.D.

THE BIBLE CONTINUES" WAS A

TOP-10 SHOW WITH 9.7 MILLION

VIEWERS.

THAT WAS JUST A MILLION

VIEWERS LESS THAN LAST

YEAR.

BOTH SERIES WERE PRODUCED BY

MARK BURNETT AND ROMA

DOWNEY.

AND ABC'S AIRING OF THE "THE

TEN COMMANDMENTS" REACHED

NEARLY 7 MILLION VIEWERS.

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

WELL, IN CHINA, AN ELDERLY

MAN WORKED THREE JOBS JUST

TO FEED HIS FAMILY.

AND WHEN THEIR GRANDSON WAS

BORN WITH A MAJOR BIRTH

DEFECT, THEY HAD NOWHERE TO

TURN FOR HELP.

UNTIL A CBN CLINIC ARRIVED

IN THEIR VILLAGE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Terry: GRANDMA AND

GRANDPA DU WERE EXCITED WHEN

THEIR DAUGHTER ANNOUNCED SHE

WAS PREGNANT.

THEY KNEW THEY WOULD RISING

THEIR GRANDCHILD BECAUSE

THROUGH SON WAS PERMANENTLY

DISABLED.

MY HEART FROZE.

MY GRANDSON HAD CLEFT LIP.

HIGH HEART SUNK TO THE

GROUND.

HOW WOULD IT AFFECT GABO'S

DEVELOPMENT.

GABO CHOKED WHEN HIS

GRANDMOTHER GAVE HIM HIS

BOTTLES, LEAVING HIM WEAK

AND SMALL.

I KNEW OTHER KIDS WOULD

LAUGH AT HIM WHEN HE STARTED

SCHOOL.

EMPLOYERS WOULD TURN HIM

DOWN WITH HIS CLEFT LIP.

HE WOULD NEED SURGERY.

Terry: MR. DU COULDN'T

AFFORD THAT.

HE WORKED THREE JOBS, BUT

BARELY MADE $60 A MONTH.

MY HUSBAND TRIED SO

HARD.

HE NEVER GOT ANY REST.

AND I WAS EXHAUSTED TRYING

TO TAKE CARE OF GABO AT MY

AGE.

I ADMIT AT ONE POINT I FELT

LIKE GIVING UP.

Terry: THAT'S WHEN THE

COUPLE HEARD ABOUT A CLEFT

LIP CLINIC THAT CBN WAS

HELPING TO COORDINATE.

GABO WAS SCHEDULED FOR

SURGERY RIGHT AWAY.

I NEVER DREMPT THAT

SOMEONE WOULD GIVE MY

GRANDSON FREE SURGERY, BUT

YOU DID.

YOU CAME JUST IN TIME.

Terry: LITTLE GABO'S

CLEFT LIP WAS REPAIRED BY

EXPERT DOCTORS, AND TODAY HE

IS LIGHTING UP HIS

GRANDPARENTS' LIVES.

BEFORE THE SURGERY, GABO

DIDN'T HAVE ANY STRENGTH TO

WALK.

BUT NOW HE IS EATING,

GROWING, AND WALKING.

YOU HAVE BROUGHT US LIFE

AND HOPE.

MY GRANDSON IS SO

GOOD-LOOKING, AND HE LOVES

TO LAUGH.

I JUST KNOW THAT HE IS GOING

TO HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE

NOW.

Wendy: HE IS

GOOD-LOOKING, INDEED.

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO BRING

LIFE AND HOPE TO A FAMILY

LIKE THAT AND A LITTLE BOY

OR GIRL LIKE THAT.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT WE CAN DO

WITH JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH.

WE REALLY CAN CHANGE LIVES

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

CALL US NOW AND SAY, YES, I

MENTALLY, AND YOU'RE

DISCOURAGED ABOUT YOUR

HEALING, YOU NEED TO GET

THIS.

THIS IS REALLY TRANS

TRANSFORMATIONAL.

SOMEBODY HAS SEEN THIS,

PAT.

LINDA FROM LIGNUM,

VIRGINIA.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF LIGNUM.

Pat: IT IS PAST

CHARLOTTESVILLE.

SHE SAYS, "PAT, YOU ARE

PROOF WE CAN ALL LIVE A

RICHER, FULLER LIFE IN THE

LORD JESUS IF WE ONLY WALK

WITH HIM."

UP NEXT, THE NASCAR DRIVER

WHO LET JESUS TAKE THE

WHEEL.

MY HANDS, MY FEET, MY

MIND, AND MY HEART, GOD, PUT

THIS CAR WHERE YOU WANT IT,

IS MY PRAYER.

Wendy: AND THEN LATER,

PAT IS GOING TO ANSWER

QUESTIONS FROM OUR VIEWERS.

DIANE SAYS, "PAT, HOW DO I

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

GOD'S VOICE AND MY

IMAGINATION?"

IT IS ANOTHER ROUND OF

"BRING IT ON" WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: HEY, IT'S

AMERICA'S MOST EXCITING

CHRISTIAN GRADUATE

UNIVERSITY.

OPENING UP.

THEY'VE GOT, NOW, 70 PLUS

THEY CHANGED THE NUMBER.

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

OR LOG ON TO www.regent

WWW.REGENT.EDU.

THE SPRING IS AN EXCITING

TIME.

Wendy: AND NEXT

WEDNESDAY, I'M INTERVIEWING

ONE OF OUR TALENTED FILM

MAJORS WHO DID THIS

INCREDIBLE DOCUMENTARY ON

THE ADIRONDACKS OF NEW

YORK.

WE WENT OUT THERE TO DO SOME

HIKING, BUT HIS DOCUMENT IS

EXQUISITE.

THAT IS NEXT WEEK.

Pat: WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: BLAKE COOK IS NO

STRANGER TO SHARP TURNS,

HIGH SPEEDS, AND PASSING

OTHER CARS WITHOUT

SIGNALLING.

FOR BLAKE, IT IS JUST

ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE.

I LOVE TO GET IN A RACE

CAR AND GO AS FAST AS I

POSSIBLY CAN AND MAKE A

LIVING DOING IT.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

RACING STARTED AS A BOY WITH

MOTOCROSS.

IT WAS THE LOVE OF MY

LIFE, GROWING UP, FROM THE

TIME I WAS 13 TO 17 YEARS

OLD.

I WAS ON THE ROAD WITH MY

FAMILY, RACING DIRT BIKES.

Reporter: HE WAS RAISED

IN A CHRISTIAN HOME, BUT HE

SAYS HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD WAS A DISTANT SECOND TO

HIS LOVE FOR MOTOCROSS.

BEFORE I WOULD EVEN TAKE

OFF, I WOULD SAY A PRAYER ON

THE LINE AND BOW MY HEAD,

BUT I REALLY DIDN'T HAVE

THAT PERSONAL ONE-ON-ONE

RELATIONSHIP.

IT ALMOST FELT LIKE NOW IS

THE ONLY TIME I NEED YOU.

I NEED YOU, I'M ABOUT TO

RISK MY LIFE.

BUT WHEN I DONE, I'LL TALK

YOU TO NEXT WEEK WHEN I'M

BACK ON THAT STARTING LINE.

Reporter: AFTER SEVERAL

TEARS TO HIS A.C.L., HIS

MOTOCROSS CAREER WAS OVER.

BUT HIS STEPFATHER SUGGESTED

A NEW HOBBY.

HE WAS LIKE, BLAKE, IF I

DRIVE THIS RACE CAR, DO YOU

WANT TO DRIVE IT?

I SAID, I DON'T KNOW IF

THAT IS MY THING.

I WAS ALWAYS AGAINST FOUR

WHEELS.

I LOVED TWO WHEELS.

I DROVE IT AND FELL IN

LOVE.

AND PEOPLE TOLD ME, YOU'RE

REALLY GOOD.

IF YOU'RE A NATURAL, YOU CAN

MAKE SOMETHING WITH IT.

AND WHEN I HEARD, ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD, I

REALLY TOOK IT TO HEART.

WHEN I HAD MY FIRST SHOT TO

RACE IN NASCAR, I REALLY

WASN'T THAT NERVOUS.

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO

SHIFT.

AND I GOT TO THE TRACK FOR

MY FIRST TIME, AND I KNEW IT

WOULD BE A MANUAL

TRANSMISSION, BUT I KNEW

THAT GOD OPENED THIS DOOR,

AND FEAR WASN'T AN OPTION.

AND IT WAS GOOD.

I QUALIFIED FOURTH IN

CALIFORNIA.

AND THEN THEY SIGNED ME

FULL-TIME THE NEXT YEAR TO

RACE.

Reporter: BLAKE SAYS HE

MADE HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH A

PRIORITY AND PUT HIS TRUST

IN JESUS.

IT IS REALLY A PERSONAL

ONE-ON-ONE RELATIONSHIP, AND

THAT REALLY STARTED WHEN I

WAS ABOUT 20 YEARS OLD.

WHEN I STARTED LISTENING AND

READING INTO THE WORD MORE

AND STUDYING IT, AND REALLY

PURSUING CHRIST.

Reporter: HE SAYS HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH HAS HELPED

BRING STABILITY TO A CAREER

THAT COULD END IN AN

INSTANT.

SHORTLY AFTER MY WIFE AND

I GOT MARRIED, I LOST MY

SPONSORSHIP.

I WAS AT A POINT WHERE GOD

OPENED THE DOORS HE WANTED

OPEN AND CLOSED THE DOORS HE

WANTED CLOSED.

WORRYING DOES NOT ADD A

SINGLE THING.

I KNOW THE LORD IS GOING TO

TAKE CARE OF ME AND HE WILL

PROVIDE MY DAILY BREAD.

WHAT HAS HELPED WITH THAT IS

SURROUNDING MYSELF WITH

GREAT PEOPLE, FELLOWSHIP,

BUILDING EACH OTHER UP IN

SPEAKING TRUTH INTO EACH

OTHER'S LIVES.

Reporter: AFTER A BRIEF

PITSTOP FROM RAISING, BLAKE

WAS BACK IN THE DRIVER'S

SEAT.

HE IS NOW SPONSORED BY

COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL,

AND HE ENTHUSIASTICALLY

SPEAKS ABOUT HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

WHEREVER HE CAN.

HE HAS GIVEN ME THIS

PLATFORM THAT PEOPLE LISTEN

TO ME.

AND I THINK IT IS A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO TELL PEOPLE

ABOUT JESUS THROUGH THAT.

AND EVERY RESPONSE USUALLY

HAS JESUS INVOLVED IN IT.

Reporter: BLAKE SAYS HE

KEEPS HIS LIFE AND HIS RACE

CAR IN GOD'S CAPABLE HANDS.

I HAVE TO FULLY SURRENDER

EVERYTHING TO LET GOD WORK

IN MY LIFE.

IT IS NOT A ROUTINE OR A

SUPERSTITIOUS THING, THAT IF

I DON'T PRAY, I'M NOT GOING

TO PERFORM.

IT IS ALL ABOUT GOD PUTTING

THAT CAR IN GOD'S HANDS.

MY HANDS, MY FEET, MY MIND,

AND MY HEART, PUT THIS CAR

WHERE YOU WANT IT.

I LET GO OF EVERYTHING, AND

IT'S IN HIS HANDS.

Wendy: ALSO FOR SOMEONE

WHO HAS A NEED FOR SPEED, I

CAN UNDERSTAND PRAYING

BEFORE YOU GET BEHIND THE

WHEEL.

YOU ALSO HAVE A NEED FOR

SPEED?

Pat: I LIKE IT.

I WAS GIVEN BY THE STAFF, A

CHRISTMAS PRESENT, THE PETTY

DRIVING EXPERIENCE.

I WENT DOWN TO THE CHARLOTTE

RACE AREA AND WAS PUT IN A

RACE CAR.

AND THEN I DID 30 LAPS.

Wendy: HOW FAST DID YOU

GET?

I GOT TO 145 MILES AN

HOUR, AND IT WAS SO SLOW.

Wendy: REALLY?

IT FELT SLOW?

Pat: THE CHARLOTTE

THING, IT GOES UP A HILL AND

THEN YOU TURN.

AND THE IDEA IS WHEN YOU GET

TO THE TOP OF IT, YOU NEVER

PUT YOUR BRAKES ON.

ALL YOU DO IS LET ON THE GAS

AND SLAM IT UP AGAIN AND GO

OVER THE TOP AND GO DOWN THE

HILL.

Wendy: I'VE NEVER MADE

IT TO 145.

Pat: YOU HAVEN'T?

BUT I WANTED MORE SPEED.

I THOUGHT IF I COULD GET UP

TO 175, 180 MILES AN HOUR IT

WOULD BE A KICK.

Wendy: WHY DOES THIS

NOT SURPRISE ME ABOUT YOU?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW,

DARLING.

I'M A PLACID OLD GUY.

Wendy: WE'VE GOT SOME

GREAT QUESTIONS TODAY.

DIANE WRITES, "HOW CAN I

AFFIRM GOD IS TALKING TO ME

AND IT'S NOT JUST MY

IMAGINATION."

Pat: THERE IS NO

SUBSTITUTE FOR PRACTICING

THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE

VOICE OF THE LORD.

LISTEN TO GOD, AND YOU'LL

BEGIN TO DISCERN WHAT IS

YOUR VOICE AND WHAT IS

SATAN'S VOICE AND WHAT IS

YOUR FRIEND'S VOICE AND WHAT

IS GOD'S VOICE.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE BUT

PRACTICING THE PRESENCE OF

GOD.

Wendy: KIM WRITES, "MY

BOYFRIEND OF MANY YEARS

PASSED AWAY IN 2013.

HE WAS A PASTOR AND WAS

DEEPLY MISSED.

HOW CAN I COMMUNICATE WITH

HIM?

MEANING, CAN HE HEAR ME

THROUGH PRAYER?

I MISS HIM SO MUCH.

HE DIED WAY TOO EARLY, IN

HIS 40s, AND TOUCHED MANY

LIVES."

Pat: DAVID GOT A WOMAN

PREGNANT, AND THE BABY

DIED.

AND DAVID SAID, I CAN'T GO

TO HIM -- HE CAN'T COME TO

ME, BUT ONE DAY I WILL GO TO

HIM.

YOU WILL DIE ONE DAY AND YOU

WILL BE REUNITED WITH YOUR

LOVED ONES.

RIGHT NOW YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO CONTACT THE DEAD.

THE BIBLE SAYS BETWEEN US

THERE IS A GREAT GULF, AND

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO CROSS

FROM ONE SIDE TO THE OTHER.

SO DON'T TRY IT.

ANYBODY WHO THINKS THEY CAN

DO IT, THEY'RE A BUNCH OF

FRAUDS.

PSYCHICS AND MYSTICS AND ALL

THIS STUFF, THEY'RE IN TOUCH

WITH DEMONIC SPIRITS.

YOU CAN'T DO IT.

THE GUY IS DEAD.

TAKE IT AND GET ON WITH YOUR

LIFE.

Wendy: I KNOW PEOPLE

WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES,

AND HAVE HAD DREAMS WHERE

GOD HAS GRACIOUSLY SHOWN

THEM THEIR LOVED ONE IN

HEAVEN REJOICING.

Pat: IT IS A FAMIAL

CIRCUMSTANCES.

Wendy: CHERYL

WRITES, "ALALTHOUGH OUR

DAUGHTER WAS RAISED IN A

CHRISTIAN HOME, SHE HAS

BECOME AN ATHEIST, AND SHE

AND HER HUSBAND ARE RAISING

OUR GRANDCHILDREN AS

ATHEISTS.

A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO THEY

STAYED IN OUR HOME, AND I

READ SOME BIBLE VERSES TO

THEM AND SHOWED SOME BIBLE

VIDEOS.

MY DAUGHTER WAS SO UPSET.

SHE SAYS SHE DOES NOT WANT

ME TO SHOW THEM AGAIN UNLESS

SHE ASKS HER.

DO I APOLOGIZE?

WHAT DO I DO?"

Pat: NOBODY WANTS

SOMEBODY COMING IN TELLING

THEM HOW TO RAISE THEIR

CHILDREN.

IT IS NORMAL PARENTING.

YOU'VE GOT A GOOD MOTIVE.

GET THOSE "SUPERBOOK"

D.V.D.s AND GIVE THEM TO

YOUR DAUGHTER AND SAY, HOW

ABOUT WATCHING THESE AND SEE

WHAT YOU THINK.

MAYBE SHE CAN BE BROUGHT

BACK TO THE LORD.

BRING UP A CHILD IN THE WAY

OF THE LORD, AND WHEN

THEY'RE GROWN THEY WON'T

DEPART FROM IT.

I WOULD BE MUCH IN PRAYER

FOR THIS DAUGHTER, THAT SHE

WILL COME BACK TO HER

SENSES.

AND SHE WILL.

THERE WILL BE SOME CRISIS IN

HER LIFE WHERE SHE'LL HAVE

TO CALL ON THE LORD.

BUT IT'S A SHAME.

BUT AS A PARENT, YOU CANNOT

VIOLATE THE WISHES OF A

PARENT.

YOU JUST CAN'T DO IT.

IF SHE IS ABUSING THE KID,

TAKE THE CHILDREN AWAY FROM

HER AND GET PROTECTIVE

CUSTODY.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT, YOU

CAN'T DO IT.

Wendy: "SUPERBOOK," A

GREAT IDEA.

MICHELLE SAYS, "IN CASTING

OUT DEMONS, CAN YOU ORDER

THEM TO GO BACK TO THE PITS

OF HELL WHERE THEY BELONG?

I DON'T WANT TO COMMAND THEY

GO BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME

FROM BECAUSE IT MIGHT BE TO

SOMEONE WHO JUST GOT SET

FREE?"

Pat: YOU REMEMBER THE

CASE OF THE PIGS AND THE

DEMONS, AND THEY PLED WITH

JESUS NOT TO COMMAND THEM TO

GO TO THE PIT AHEAD OF

TIME.

SO HE SAYS, OKAY, YOU CAN GO

GET THOSE PIGS.

I DON'T KNOW IF WE HAVE THE

AUTHORITY TO CONDEMN A DEMON

TO ULTIMATE HELL.

THE PRAYER I WOULD PRAY IS,

I BIND YOUR POWER AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL, AND I

COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE.

I'VE ALSO COMMANDED THEM TO

GO BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME

FROM, AND THEY'VE DONE IT,

WHEN YOU REALLY WANT TO TEAR

SOMETHING UP.

BUT THEY WILL OBEY YOU.

BUT WHETHER YOU HAVE THE

POWER TO COMMAND THEM TO GO

TO HELL, I DON'T KNOW.

I WOULDN'T OBSESS ON IT A

WHOLE LOT.

THIS IS SOMETHING YOU BETTER

JUST LEAVE ALONE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PROVERBS,

FIRST CHAPTER: "WHOEVER

LISTENED TO ME WILL DWELL

SAFELY AND WILL BE SECURE

WITHOUT FEAR OF EVIL."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

TOMORROW WE'LL LOOK FORWARD

TO SEEING SOME HEROS OF THE

CIVIL WAR.

BYE-BYE.
