The 700 Club - April 15, 2015

Karen tells everyone in her retirement community of the power of Jesus after she received a miraculous healing. Also, John was addicted to three destructive vices by the time he was 14 years old. Read Transcript


Wendy: IT'S NOT JUST A

WALK IN THE PARK.

IT'S BECOMING MORE AND

MORE ABOUT THE JOURNEY.

Wendy: IT IS ALSO A

LOVE STORY.

THIS IS THE LANDSCAPE

THAT MAKES MY HEART.

Wendy: PLUS...AN ADDICT

FINALLY HAS FALLEN DOWN.

I HAVE FALLEN AS LOW AS I

CAN GO.

Wendy: AND THEN...A

MAJOR SCARE.

I THOUGHT I WAS HAVING A

HEART ATTACK.

Wendy: AND A MIRACLE.

I SLEPT LIKE A NEWBORN

BABY THAT NIGHT.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

OUR RESIDENT MOUNTAIN

CLIMBER IS HERE WITH US.

YOU CLIMBED THE

APPALACHIANS --

Wendy: THE

ADIRONDACKS.

THERE ARE 46 PEAKS OF THE

ADIRONDACKS --

Pat: AND YOU'VE DONE

THEM ALL?

Wendy: NO, I'VE ONLY

DONE ONE.

I'M ASPIRING TO DO MORE.

IT WAS CRAZY, IT WAS JUST

THREE WEEKS AGO, AND THERE

WAS THREE FEET OF SNOW.

I HAVE NEVER WORN SNOWSHOES,

AND I NEVER HIKED IN

SNOWSHOES BEFORE.

IT TAKES A COUPLE OF MINUTES

TO GET USED TO.

I'LL SHOW YOU COMING UP.

Pat: I'M LOOKING

FORWARD TO IT.

> BOEHNER CALLS IT A DEAL

WITH THE DEVIL.

THAT'S HOW HE DESCRIBES THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN.

AND THEY SAY CUBA STILL

SUPPORTS TERRORISM, EVEN IF

THE PRESIDENT CLAIMS IT

DOESN'T.

Wendy: CONGRESS WILL

GET THE CHANCE TO WEIGH IN

ON BOTH IRAN AND CUBA, AND

AS CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS,

THE PRESIDENT IS FACING A

GREAT DEAL OF CRITICISM OVER

HIS FOREIGN POLICY.

Reporter: IT IS A MAJOR

STEP TOWARDS A MORE NORMAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH DECADES.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ADVISING

CONGRESS HE PLANS TO TAKE

CUBA OFF THE STATE SPONSOR

OF TERRORISM LIST, A LIST

THAT ASSOCIATED THEM WITH

COUNTRIES LI LIKE SYRIA,

SUDAN, AND IRAN.

THIS IS A COUNTRY THAT

HELPED NORTH KOREA WITH U.S.

SANCTIONS AS RECENTLY AS A

YEAR AGO.

THIS IS A COUNTRY THAT

CONTINUES TO HARBOR

FUGITIVES.

AND IT HAS AN ACT OF

ESPIONAGE AGAINST US.

Reporter: REMOVING CUBA

FROM A TERROR LIST, WILL

MAKE IT EASIER FOR THEM TO

TRANSFER FUNDS BETWEEN

COUNTRIES, AND CONDUCT OTHER

INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTIONS.

IN ANOTHER

FOREIGN POLICY

MOVE, PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

VOWING TO PRESSURE FROM

LAWMAKERS, AGREEING TO A

COMPROMISE THAT GIVES

CONGRESS THE ABILITY TO

REJECT HIS AGREEMENT WITH

IRAN.

I THINK CONGRESS SHOULD

PLAY A ROLE, ENSURING THAT

ALL OF THE DETAILS THAT NEED

TO BE THERE ARE THERE, AND

ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, BEFORE THE

CONGRESSIONAL SANCTIONS ARE

LET UP, THAT THIS IS

SOMETHING THAT HOLDS IRAN

ACCOUNTABLE, IT IS

ENFORCEABLE, AND IT IS

TRANSPARENT.

Reporter: JOHN BOEHNER,

AN OUTSPOKEN CRITIC OF

OBAMA'S PLAN TO NEGOTIATE

WITH IRAN SAID: "I DON'T HOW

YOU CUT A DEAL WITH THE

DEVIL AND HOPE THE DEVIL

WILL KEEP HIS END OF THE

DEAL."

THEY SAY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS GETTING

NOTHING IN RETURN FOR HIS

OUTREACH TO CUBA, AND ON

IRAN, DESPITE CRITICISM FROM

CONGRESS, THEY SAY OBAMA IS

LIKELY TO GET HIS WAY, AS

LONG AS HE HAS ENOUGH

DEMOCRATS SUPPORTING HIM.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, YOU KNOW, LET'S

FACE IT, WE HAVE A

GOVERNMENT THAT WAS SET UP

BY SOME VERY WISE MEN.

THEY FORMED A CONSTITUTION.

IT WAS HARD-FOUGHT, WORKED

OVER.

BUT THE DEAL IS THIS: YOU

HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT IS IN

THREE PARTS, BUT THE MOST

IMPORTANT PART IS THE

CONGRESS, WHICH REPRESENTS

THE PEOPLE.

THE LAWS ARE TO BE PASSED BY

THE CONGRESS.

TREATIES ARE TO BE RATIFIED

BY THE SENATE.

ALL RIGHT, THE PRESIDENT HAS

GOT TO FAITHFULLY EXECUTE

THE LAWS PASSED BY

CONGRESS.

AND EXECUTE UNDER THE

CONSTITUTION, DEFEND AND

OBEY THE CONSTITUTION.

OBAMA HAS DECIDED HE DOESN'T

NEED THE CONGRESS, AND HE

IGNORES THE COURTS, MAKES

FUN OF THE OTHER BRANCHES OF

GOVERNMENT, AND THINKS THAT

HE SOMEHOW IS THE MESSIAH

AND CAN GO ANY WAY HE WANTS

TO.

THAT WAS NEVER THE WAY OUR

GOVERNMENT WAS INTENDED TO

FUNCTION.

NOW, THIS IS A SLIGHT

CONCESSION, BUT NOT MUCH OF

A CONCESSION, IN TERMS OF

THIS TERRIBLE DEAL WITH

IRAN.

BUT TO THINK THAT THE

IRANIANS ARE CALLING US --

THAT WE'RE THE GREAT SATAN,

AND WE MUST BE DESTROYED,

AND ISRAEL MUST BE

DESTROYED.

AND AS BOEHNER SAYS, YOU'RE

GOING TO MAKE A DEAL WITH

THE DEVIL, AND THE DEVIL HAS

ALREADY TOLD YOU HE IS GOING

TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU

ONCE HE HAS MADE THE DEAL.

AND THEY SAID, NO WAY ARE

YOU GOING TO COME INTO OUR

MILITARY BASES AND EXAMINE

WHETHER OR NOT WE'VE GOT

NUCLEAR MATERIAL READY FOR

BOMBS.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DO IT.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO LET YOU

GET INTO OUR COUNTRY.

IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT KIND OF

INSPECTION, THEN THOSE

SAFEGUARDS ARE NULLIFIED.

BUT OBAMA JUST GOES AHEAD

AND DOES THIS BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT HE THINKS IS RIGHT.

WELL, WE DIDN'T INTEND TO

HAVE A DICTATOR.

AND IT'S TIME WE TAKE OUR

COUNTRY BACK.

WELL, OUR CLOSEST ALLY HAS

BEEN SHUNNED BY THE

PRESIDENT AND SNUBBED BY THE

PRESIDENT, BUT ISRAEL IS

DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE

NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN.

AND TWO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

FOUND OUT ABOUT THAT

FIRSTHAND IN A RECENT VISIT

TO THE JEWISH STATE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON THAT

STORY FROM OUR NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

HERE'S JOHN.

John: PAT, AS YOU JUST

MENTIONED, FOR DECADES THE

U.S. HAS BEEN ISRAEL'S

CLOSEST ALLY, BUT COULD THAT

BE CHANGING IN THE SHADOW OF

THE IRAN CONTROVERSY?

ON A RECENT VISIT TO THE

MIDDLE EAST, U.S.

CONGRESSMAN SAID THEY

TROUBLED BY THE RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN THE U.S. AND

ISRAELI.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: ISRAEL AND

THE UNITED STATES HAVE

ENJOYED A VERY CLOSE

RELATIONSHIP, GOING BACK TO

THE CREATION OF THE JEWISH

STATE.

EVEN FRIENDSHIPS GO THROUGH

ROUGH PATCHES, AND THAT HAS

HAPPENED THE PAST FEW MONTHS

REGARDING IRAN.

ISRAEL IS THE SOLE

DEMOCRACY.

ON THE FRONT LINES OF THE

WORLD AGAINST TERRORISM, IT

IS ALSO A LEADER IN THE

WORLD OF HIGH-TECH AND

MEDICAL ADVANCES.

I'M CONCERNED THAT WE, AS

AMERICANS, DON'T TRULY

APPRECIATE OR UNDERSTAND AND

THEREFORE DON'T APPRECIATE

HOW SIGNIFICANT ISRAEL IS,

NOT ONLY TO OUR SURVIVAL AS

A COUNTRY, BUT ALSO THE

SURVIVAL OF THE FREE WORLD.

Reporter: DURING A TRIP

TO ISRAEL, U.S. CONGRESSMEN

DENNIS ROSS AND ANOTHER

VISITED THEM TO SEE HOW THEY

PROTECT ITS WAY OF PEOPLE

AND WAY OF LIFE.

WE HELPED CONTRIBUTE TO

THE IRON DOME, WHICH IS A

MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM THEY

DEVELOPED.

Reporter: THEIR

COMMENTS COME AT A TIME OF

UNPRECEDENTED FRICTION

BETWEEN U.S. AND ISRAELI

LEADERSHIP OVER THE ISSUE OF

A NUCLEAR IRAN.

THE PRIME MINISTER IS THE

WINSTON CHURCHILL OF OUR

ERA, AND REGRETTABLY,

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

CHAMBERLAIN.

HE DOESN'T SEE THE FACTS.

HE DOESN'T SEE THE ISSUES.

Reporter: PITINGER HE

WAS DISTURBED THAT PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

DOESN'T SEE THAT WE WILL

HELP.

I ASKED AT THE TIME YOU

WILL NEED AMERICA, DO YOU

BELIEVE AMERICA WILL BE

THERE FOR YOU?

AND THE BEST ANSWER HE COULD

GIVE ME WAS, "I HOPE SO."

Reporter: EGYPT,

JORDAN, AND THE UNITED

UNITED EMIRATES ARE LOOKING

FOR AMERICAN HELP.

WHO CAME INTO HELP

EGYPT?

ISRAEL.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN THE BEST

PARTNER THAT ASSISI HAS

HAD.

AND ISRAEL HAS BEEN GIVEN

SIGNIFICANT STRATEGIC

ASSISTANCE TO JORDAN.

Reporter:

AND CONGRESS

AGREED THE U.S. COULD LEARN

A LOT FROM ISRAEL.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT

A RESILIENT COUNTRY THIS

IS.

UNDER AN ENORMOUS CHALLENGE

OF ITS BORDERS, IN THE MIDST

OF THAT IT IS ONE OF THE

STRONGEST ENTREPRENEURIAL

ECONOMIES IN THE WORLD.

WE CAN LEARN NOT ONLY

ABOUT THEIR COMMITMENT OF

THE I.D.F., AND YOUNG PEOPLE

GOING INTO THE SERVICE, AND

WE CAN LEARN A LOT FROM

THEIR AGRICULTURAL SKILLS

THEY'VE HONED, AND TURNED A

DESERT INTO A GREAT ARENA.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, JERUSALEM.

John: PAT, NO DOUBT THE

RELATIONSHIP HAS SEEN

BRIGHTER DAYS.

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU, THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ISN'T

SOME BENIGN ORGANIZATION.

THEY FORMED THE P.L.O.,

WHICH IS A RADICAL

ORGANIZATION WITH YASSER

ARAFAT.

THEY FORMED HAMAS.

THEY FORMED HEZBOLLAH.

THESE ORGANIZATIONS WERE ALL

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD HAS

ONE GOAL, AND THAT IS THE

RADICALIZATION OF THE

WORLD.

THEIR GUIDE IS THE QURAN,

AND ALLAH IS THEIR KING.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO WAGE

JIHAD.

NOW, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

MEMBERS RIGHT NOW ARE

SITTING IN COUNCILS IN THE

WHITE HOUSE OF THE UNITED

STATES, GIVING ADVICE ON

FOREIGN POLICY TO NONE OTHER

THAN PRESIDENT OBAMA.

AND I THINK THE TIME HAS

COME THAT WE START DEMANDING

THAT OUR PRESIDENT IDENTIFY

OUR FRIENDS AND IDENTIFY OUR

ENEMIES.

AND DON'T MIX THE TWO UP.

JOHN?

John: HERE AT HOME,

CONGRESS HEARD ABOUT THE

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IN

THE ISLAMIC COUNTRY OF

PAKISTAN.

ADVOCATES FOR RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM TALKED ABOUT

PAKISTAN'S HISTORY OF

CHRISTIAN DISCRIMINATION AND

PERSECUTION, WHERE STRICT

BLASPHEMY LAWS ARE IN

PLACE.

IT CARRIES A PENALTY RANGING

FROM FINES TO DEATH, AND

TARGETS MOSTLY NON-MUSLIM

RELIGIONS.

SURVEY THE HEADLINES FOR

THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS,

INNOCENCE CHARGED WITH

BLASPHEMY, AND COUPLE BEATEN

AND BEING THROWN INTO A

BURNING POT.

John: KING AND OTHERS

BELIEVE THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION SHOULD APPLY

PRESSURE ON THE PAKISTANI

GOVERNMENT, WHICH THEY SAY

LARGELY HAS IGNORED THE

ISSUE.

> IT IS TAX TODAY, AND

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

AMERICAN TAXPAYERS WILL GET

A GLIMPSE OF EXACTLY HOW

MUCH OBAMACARE WILL COST

THEM.

IT STARTS WITH NEW QUESTIONS

ABOUT YOUR HEALTH CARE ON

THE TAX FORMS.

AS CHARLENE AARON REPORTS,

ONE OUT OF EVERY FOUR

AMERICANS COULD FACE FINES

IF THEY DON'T YET HAVE

HEALTH INSURANCE.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

THE I.R.S., AROUND 75% OF

TAXPAYERS WILL CHECK A BOX

INDICATING THEY HAVE HEALTH

COVERAGE FROM THEIR EMPLOYER

OR ANOTHER SOURCE.

BUT FOR THE 25% OF AMERICANS

COVERED BY OBAMACARE OR NOT

COVERED AT ALL, IT WON'T BE

QUITE AS SIMPLE.

FOR THOSE WHO PURCHASED

GOVERNMENT-BACKED HEALTH

CARE AND RECEIVED A HEALTH

CARE TO HELP PAY FOR IT,

THAT CREDIT WILL HAVE TO BE

RECONCILED WITH EITHER TAXES

OWED OR A REFUND.

PEOPLE WHO RECEIVED

COVERAGE THROUGH THE

EXCHANGE AND A CREDIT ARE

GOING TO HAVE TO RECONCILE

THE CREDIT THEY RECEIVED.

Reporter: FOR AMERICAN

TAXPAYERS WHO ARE STILL

UNINSURED, THIS YEAR THEY

WILL BE CHARGED A PENALTY OF

$95, OR 1% OF THEIR

HOUSEHOLD INCOME, WHICHEVER

NUMBER IS HIGHER.

THE AVERAGE PENALTY HAS

BEEN COMING OUT AT $177 THIS

YEAR.

THE PENALTIES ARE GOING UP

FOR 2015, AND THEY'RE GOING

TO GO UP AGAIN IN 2016.

Reporter: HOWEVER,

THERE ARE ABOUT 30

EXEMPTIONS THAT CAN HELP

LOWER OR COMPLETELY

ELIMINATE ANY PENALTIES.

THEY GENERALLY FALL INTO

THREE CATEGORIES: PERSONAL,

FINANCIAL, AND MEDICAL.

THE NUMBER ONE EXEMPTION:

PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT REQUIRED

TO FILE A RETURN FOR 2014.

IF YOU WERE NOT OTHERWISE

REQUIRED TO

FILE

A TAX

RETURN

FOR 2014, YOU'RE NOT

REQUIRED TO PAY THE

PENALTY.

Reporter: IF YOU

HAVEN'T SIGNED UP FOR HEALTH

CARE YET AND WANT TO AVOID

THE PENALTY, THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT HAS EXTENDED THE

WINDOW TO REGISTER UNTIL

APRIL 30th.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

John: OBAMACARE HAS

ALSO HELPED MAKE THE TAX

CODE EVEN MORE COMPLICATED.

THE TAX CODE COST THE

ECONOMY $234 BILLION, DUE TO

SIX BILLION LOST HOURS OF

PRODUCTIVITY.

ACCORDING TO THE ANALYSIS.

THE REPORT ALSO SAYS THINGS

COULD GET EVEN WORSE BECAUSE

OF 3300 NEW PAGES OF LEGAL

GUIDANCE FOR OBAMACARE.

IT INFLICTING NEW BURDENS ON

TAXPAYERS, AND THIS IS BOUND

TO INCREASE THE BURDENS OF

TAX COMPLEXITY, MORE THAN

WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN

OBSERVED.

> IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR

BRAIN HEALTHY AS YOU GET

OLDER, TRY EXERCISE, ALONG

WITH CUTTING BACK ON YOUR

CHANCES FOR SERIES HEALTH

PROBLEMS, LIKE HEART DISEASE

AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.

THAT IS NOT ONLY GOOD FOR

THE

BODY, BUT GOOD FOR THE

MIND.

HEALTH DAY REPORTS EXPERTS

ALSO RECOMMEND GETTING

ENOUGH SLEEP, ALONG WITH

KEEPING YOUR MIND ACTIVE,

AND HAVING AN ACTIVE, GOOD

SOCIAL LIFE.

PAT, I'M SURE YOU TICKED OFF

EVERY ITEM ON THAT LIST

BECAUSE YOU'RE THE PICTURE

OF GOOD HEALTH.

Pat: I THINK STAYING ON

THE TV SHOUL SHOW IS WHAT

DOES IT, AND READING THE

DAILY NEWS.

AND ALSO, PHOSPHITALAL

SERINE, AND THAT WILL KEEP

THE BODY GOING.

Wendy: AND YOU PUMPED

SOME IRON --

Pat: I PUMPED SOME IRON

IN MY DAYS.

I USED TO DO LEG PRESSES,

AND I WOULD REGULARLY DO 30

WITH A THOUSAND POUNDS OF

WEIGHTS.

THAT WAS A LONG TIME AGO.

Wendy: I KNOW YOU STILL

LIFT SOME WEIGHTS, BECAUSE

YOU SAID THE OTHER DAY YOU

WERE LIFTING.

OH, YOU'VE GOT THE TOTAL

GYM.

Pat: I HAVE THE TOTAL

GYM, AND I'VE GOT WEIGHTS IN

MY ATTIC.

I'VE GOT WEIGHTS THAT GO UP

TO 80 POUNDS FOR DUMBBELLS.

I DO DUMBBELLS.

Wendy: AND THE OLDER WE

GET, THE MORE IMPORTANT IT

IS.

TO KEEP OUR BONES STRONG.

Pat: THEY SAY IT IS.

BUT RIDING HORSES IS REALLY

BETTER.

THE HORSE DOES THE WORK AND

YOU GET THE BENEFIT.

Wendy: COMING UP, WE'LL

TAKE A PEEK AT A NEW

DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE

46ers.

THERE ARE 46 MOUNTAINS IN

THE ADIRONDACK MOUNTAINS,

OVER 4,000 FEET.

THEY ARE KNOWN AS THE HIGH

PEAKS.

AND THE PEOPLE WHO

SUCCESSFUL CONQUER ALL 46

ARE KNOWN AS THE 46ers.

Wendy: WE'LL MEET THIS

YOUNG FILM-MAKER, A REGENT

STUDENT, AND JOIN ME FOR AN

SKILEXHILARATING JOURNEY UP

THE CASCADE PEAKS, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: REGENT

UNIVERSITY IS HOME TO MANY

TALENTED STUDENTS, AND SOME

OF THEM DON'T WAIT TO

GRADUATE BEFORE MAKING THEIR

MARK.

FILM-MAKER BLAKE CORTRIGHT

WILL SOON REVEAL HIS FILM

CALLED "THE 46ers."

SO AS OUR RESIDENT

MOUNTAINEER, I TRAVELLED TO

THE PEAKS TO FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT WHAT INSPIRES THESE

LEGENDARY CLIMBERS.

WHEN BLAKE CORTRIGHT WAS AN

18-YEAR-OLD STUDENT AT

REGENT UNIVERSITY, HE HAD AN

EPIPHANY ONE DAY WHILE

HIKING IN THE ADIRONDACKS.

I LOOKED IN ALL

DIRECTIONS, AND ALL I COULD

SEE WAS WILDERNESS, AND IT

TOUCHED A PIECE OF ME.

I THOUGHT, I NEED TO MAKE A

FILM HERE.

Wendy: SO HE DID, BUT

THAT TAKES MONEY.

SO FIRST HE MADE A SHORT

VIDEO TO RAISE FUNDS AND

AWARENESS.

WHAT'S A 46er?

I'M GLAD YOU ASKED.

THERE ARE 46 MOUNTAINS IN

THE AD RA ADIRONDACK REGION

IN NEW YORK.

THEY ARE KNOWN AS THE HIGH

PEAKS.

AND THE PEOPLE WHO

SUCCESSFULLY CONQUER ALL 46

ARE KNOWN AS THE 46ers.

Wendy: AND NOW, THREE

YEARS LATER, WITH MANY HOURS

LOGGED UP THESE ROCK

FORMATIONS, THE 21-YEAR-OLD

BLAKE IS PUTTING THE

FINISHING TOUCHES ON HIS

DOCUMENTARY, "THE 46ers,"

WHICH HAS ALREADY PEAKED THE

INTEREST OF SOME NEW YORK

PUBLIC TELEVISION.

IN THE ADIRONDACKS, THEY

ASK A LOT OF YOU, BUT THEY

GIVE A LOT IN RETURN.

THIS IS THE LANDSCAPE

THAT, YOU KNOW, SPEAKS TO MY

HEART.

Wendy: BLAKE SAYS THE

GREAT DIVERSITIY OF PEOPLE

THAT HIKE THESE MOUNTAINS IS

PART OF WHAT DREW HIM TO THE

PROJECT.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE

82 YEARS OLD, AND THERE ARE

6-YEAR-OLD KIDS THE DO THE

46.

AND THERE ARE FAMILIES,

SINGLE PEOPLE, CAREER

PEOPLE, MOUNTAIN PEOPLE.

YOU'VE GOT FOLKS THAT DRIVE

UP FROM NEW YORK CITY FIVE

HOURS.

THERE ARE FOLKS THAT DRIVE

FROM CANADA.

Wendy: IS THERE A

COMMON DENOMINATOR IN THE

46ers THAT YOU'VE MET?

I FOUND THIS IS A PLACE

THAT PEOPLE JUST LOVED TO

BE, AND NOBODY CAN REALLY

DESCRIBE IT.

AS I SAT DOWN AND LOOKED AT

THESE TWO YEARS OF

INTERVIEWS AND PRODUCTION

AND MY OWN EXPERIENCE THERE,

I FELT SOMETHING THAT WAS

AKIN TO LOVE.

IT WAS THIS LOVE FOR THE

MOUNTAINS.

IT WAS WHAT I SAW THROUGH

ALL OF THE PEOPLE.

AND SO THAT KIND OF RUNS AS

A THREAD THROUGH THE FILM.

AND IT IS AMAZING TO ME HOW

THAT HAS RESHAPED THE

APPROACH TO THE DOCUMENTARY

BECAUSE IT HAS BECOME A LOVE

STORY.

I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE THAT

OTHER PEOPLE IN COLORADO OR

MAINE OR THE SIERRAS OR

NEVADA AND CALIFORNIA DON'T

FEEL THE EXACT SAME WAY

ABOUT THEIR RANGE.

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT I HAVE READ A LOT OVER

THE YEARS ABOUT PEOPLE

FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE

ADIRONDACKS, AND GOING

ELSEWHERE AND SAYING IT

DOESN'T COMPARE TO THE

ADIRONDACKS.

WHY IS THAT?

I DON'T KNOW.

Wendy: I COULDN'T DO A

STORY ON THE 46ers ON THE

ADIRONDACKS WITHOUT CLIMBING

AT LEAST ONE OF THEM.

THIS MOUNTAIN IS CALLED THE

CASCADE.

AND ALTHOUGH IT IS

SPRINGTIME, I'M HIKING IN

SNOWSHOES AND IT IS

FREEZING, BUT IT IS A GREAT

HIKE ANY TIME OF YEAR.

AND ALSO SOMETHING YOU CAN

ONLY DO DURING THE WINTER IS

KNOWN AS THE "ADIRONDACKS

BUTT SLIDE," WHICH IS AN

EASIER WAY TO GET DOWN THE

MOUNTAIN.

BLAKE SAYS HIS MAIN GOAL

WITH THE FILM WAS TO TRY TO

ANSWER THIS QUESTION:

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE

ADIRONDACKS THAT TRANSFORMS

ORDINARY MEN AND WOMEN INTO

THE MOUNTAINEERS KNOWN AS

THE 46ers.

Wendy: DID YOU FIND THE

ANSWER?

YOU HAVE TO SEE THE FILM

TO FIND OUT THE ANSWER.

Wendy: HE HAS CONQUERED

18 OF THE HIGH PEAKS MAKING

THE MOVIE.

LIKE MANY CLIMBERS WHO HAVE

FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THE

ADIRONDACKS, HE PLANS TO

SAVOR THE MOMENT AND EVERY

EXHILARATING STEP OF THE

CLIMB.

IT IS BECOMING MORE AND

MORE ABOUT THE JOURNEY.

I LOVE TO SPEND MY LIFE

TELLING STORIES THAT BRING

PEOPLE CLOSER TO GOD,

WHETHER THEY REALIZE IT OR

NOT.

AND IT STARTS TO GIVE THEM A

SENSE OF SOMETHING BEYOND

THEMSELVES.

Wendy: PAT, DOESN'T

THAT SCENERY INSPIRE YOU?

Pat: IT LIFTS YOUR

HEART.

IT IS JUST AMAZING.

WHAT I SAW, IT'S JUST

BEAUTIFUL.

Wendy: BLAKE GRADUATES

IN MAY, AND HE IS HOPING HIS

DOCUMENTARY WILL OPEN THE

DOOR FOR HIM TO GO FULL-TIME

INTO THE MOVIE BUSINESS.

IF YOU'RE A MOVIE BUSINESS

GUY, YOU'VE GOT YOUR GUY

RIGHT THERE.

Pat: WHEN THE SHOT THE

MOHEGANS, IT WAS THAT KIND

OF SCENERY.

WAS IT EXHAUSTING UP THAT

MOUNTAIN?

Wendy: HONESTLY, I HAD

TO STOP SEVERAL TIMES TO

CATCH MY BREATH.

THE THING I LOVE ABOUT

HIKING, IT IS THE BEST

CARDIO.

YOUR HEART CAN'T PUMP: YOU

PUMP; YOU HAVE TO STOP.

IT WAS A LOT OF FUN.

Pat: REGENT UNIVERSITY

HAS A MASTER IN FINE ARTS IN

FILM.

I THINK IT IS THE ONLY ONE

BEING OFFERED BY ANY

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL IN THE

NATION.

I BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE.

THEY HAVE RECEIVED 360

NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL

FILM AWARDS FOR THE WORK

THEY'RE DOING.

THEY JUST HAD, LAST SATURDAY

NIGHT, A FILM FESTIVAL, AND

IT WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH THE

STUDENT FILMS.

THEY ARE DOING A TREMENDOUS

JOB.

AND THE CAMERA ANGLES, THE

LIGHTING AND THE SCRIPTS AND

EVERYTHING, IT IS JUST

REALLY FIRST NOTCH.

AND WENDY WAS TELLING ME ON

THE ADIRONDACKS, THEY HAD AN

ORIGINAL SCORE, AND SOMEBODY

HAD A SYNTHESIZER AND COOKED

UP A BRAND NEW SCORE JUST

FOR THAT FILM.

Wendy: IT IS HUGE.

I WAS THERE FOR THE FILM

THING ON SATURDAY NIGHT, AND

I COULDN'T BELIEVE SOME OF

THE MOVIES THAT OUR REGENT

STUDENTS ARE DOING.

Pat: YOU SHOULD HAVE

SEEN 10 YEARS BEFORE.

THIS IS LIKE A WHOLE OTHER

WORLD.

I'M REALLY PROUD OF THEM.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU

WANT TO GET A DEGREE, A

MASTER IN FINE ARTS AND

FILM, CALL 1-888-910-7688.

THEY'LL BE TAKING STUDENTS,

I BELIEVE, IN OTHER FEW

WEEKS.

IT'S AN EIGHT-WEEK SIGN-UP

DEAL.

SO YOU COULD BE A PART OF

IT.

IT IS VERY EXCITING, BUT,

MAN, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL

EXPERIENCE.

THE 46ers.

I LOVE IT.

AND WENDY HAD TO GO AND

EXPERIENCE IT.

Wendy: I'VE ONLY GOT 45

TO GO.

Pat: AND HER CARDIO IS

AWESOME, OFF THE CHARTS.

Wendy: UP NEXT, SHE IS

81 YEARS YOUNG, AND NOT

ABOUT TO PUT UP WITH ANY

PAIN.

THE PAIN WENT RIGHT DOWN

MY ARM.

I SAID, MAYBE I'M HAVING A

HEART ATTACK.

I SAID, HEY, THIS HAS GONE

FAR ENOUGH.

Wendy: WATCH WHAT THIS

FEISTY SENIOR DID NEXT.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

KAREN SANDERS LIVES IN A

RETIREMENT COMMUNITY, BUT

TAKING IT EASY, THAT'S NOT

HER STYLE.

NOT LONG AGO, SEVERE NECK

AND SHOULDER PAIN THREATENED

TO SLOW HER DOWN, UNTIL

KAREN TOOK HER PRAYERS INTO

OVERDRIVE.

Reporter: AT 81 YEARS

YOUNG, KAREN SANDERS DOESN'T

LET MANY THINGS SLOW HER

DOWN.

BUT IN MARCH OF 2013, KAREN

CAME HOME AFTER A LONG WALK

AND NOTICED SOMETHING WRONG

WITH HER ARM.

THE PAIN WENT RIGHT DOWN

MY ARM.

I THOUGHT, MAYBE I'M HAVING

A HEART ATTACK.

Reporter: FORTUNATELY,

IT WASN'T, BUT THE PAIN

DIDN'T GO AWAY.

IT HINDERED ME FROM MY

DUTIES.

I COULDN'T DO ANYTHING WITH

MY RIGHT ARM OR TURN MY

NECK.

SO I TOOK A PAIN PILL, AND

THEN I TOOK ANOTHER ONE, AND

THAT EASED IT FOR ABOUT A

HALF A DAY.

I SAID, HEY, THIS HAS GONE

FAR ENOUGH.

SO THAT'S WHEN I STARTED

TALKING TO THE LORD ABOUT

IT, PRAYING ABOUT IT.

Reporter: ABOUT A MONTH

LATER, KAREN WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

AS SHE DID MOST MORNINGS.

THE HOSTS, PAT AND TERRY,

WERE PRAYING FOR VIEWERS.

PAT WAS ON TV, AND HE

STARTED TELLING ME ABOUT

THAT THERE IS A LADY OUT

THERE IN THE AUDIENCE THAT

IS HAVING SUCH PAIN IN HER

SHOULDER AND HER NECK.

I SAID, HEY, THAT'S FOR ME.

PAT SAID TO PUT YOUR HAND ON

YOUR NECK AND YOUR

SHOULDER.

I DID.

Pat: SOMEONE HAS A NECK

MUSCLE, AND IT'S VERY SORE.

PUT YOUR HAND ON IT RIGHT

NOW, AND THE LORD JUST

HEALED IT.

TOUCH IT, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

THAT'S WHEN THE HOLY

SPIRIT CAME DOWN OVER ME.

I HAD A WARM SENSATION IN MY

SHOULDER AND IN MY NECK.

I SAID, THAT'S IT, I'M

HEALED.

AND I TRIED TO RAISE MY

HANDS UP LIKE THAT, PRAISING

HIM, AND TEARS WERE ROLLING

DOWN MY EYES.

I SLEPT LIKE A NEWBORN BABY

THAT NIGHT.

Reporter: KAREN STILL

LIKES TAKING WALKS AROUND

HER RETIREMENT COMMUNITY AND

PLAYING BOARD GAMES WITH

FRIENDS.

SHE ALSO ATTENDS WEEKLY

BIBLE STUDIES AND LOVES

TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE

HEALING POWER OF JESUS.

WHEN HE HEALS SOMEBODY,

THE PAIN NEVER COMES BACK.

AND THAT NEVER CAME BACK,

NOT EVEN ONCE.

IF THERE IS SOMETHING IN

YOUR LIFE, TAKE IT TO

JESUS.

YOU LEAVE IT AT THE FEET OF

JESUS, AND DON'T GO BACK IN

PICK IT UP.

LET HIM CARRY EVERYTHING FOR

YOU.

Wendy: AMEN.

TAKE IT TO JESUS AND DON'T

PICK IT BACK UP.

PRAISE THE LORD, SHE WAS

HEALED.

AND MRS. KRAMER OF

MISSISSIPPI, WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH POLYPS IN HER VOCAL

CHORDS.

SHE WAS WATCHING THE SHOW

AND HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVE A

WORD ABOUT GROWTH ON THE

THROAT BEING HEALED.

SHE CLAIMED THAT FOR

HERSELF.

THE NEXT DAY, SHE WENT TO A

PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED

EXAMINE, AND THE DOCTOR

FOUND THE POLYPS ON HER

VOCAL CHORDS WERE COMPLETELY

GONE.

Pat: THAT'S A BIG DEAL,

FOR THE LORD TO TAKE THAT

AWAY.

THAT'S A BIG DEAL.

THIS IS MICHELLE, WHO LIVES

IN BAY CITY, MICHIGAN, AND

FOUND A LUMP IN HER BREAST.

A MAMMOGRAM CONFIRMED SHE

HAD A TOTAL OF FIVE MASSES.

SHE SAID, I'VE GOT TO SEE A

SURGEON.

BEFORE SHE SAW THE DOCTOR,

SHE CALLED "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND PRAYED WITH THE

COUNSELLOR, THAT THE MASSES

WOULD DISSOLVE.

AND GUESS WHAT?

SHE WENT TO THE SURGEON AND

THEY COULDN'T FIND A SINGLE

LUMP.

THEY'RE ALL GONE.

AND SHE IS PRAISING GOD.

FOLKS, WE SERVE A GOD WHO IS

ABLE.

YOU ASK ME HOW DO I KNOW

THAT LADY?

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WOMAN WHO

HAD THAT PROBLEM WITH HER

NECK.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT OTHER ONE

THAT WENDY JUST READ ABOUT.

BUT GOD KNOWS THEM.

AND GOD KNOWS YOU.

HE KNOWS YOUR NAME.

HE KNOWS HOW OLD YOU ARE.

HE KNOWS ALL OF YOUR PAIN.

HE KNOWS YOUR GOOD POINTS

AND HE KNOWS YOUR SINS.

AND HE SAYS, I LOVE YOU AND

I'M GOING TO DO GOOD THINGS

FOR YOU.

AND TOGETHER AS WE PRAY,

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER, AND

WE'RE GOING TO AGREE WITH

YOU.

SO ALL I ASK YOU TO DO RIGHT

NOW IS TO AGREE WITH US.

DO NOT FIGHT IT.

DO NOT SIT HOME AND SAY, OH,

IT CAN'T POSSIBLY HAPPEN.

JUST, IF I CAN USE A SLANG

TERM, GO WITH THE FLOW.

GOD IS GOING TO DO SOMETHING

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

WE JOIN HANDS.

FATHER, I BELIEVE NOW IN THE

HOLY NAME OF JESUS.

POLYPS ARE GOING AWAY RIGHT

NOW.

UTERINE POLYPS ARE GOING

AWAY AT THE MOMENT.

THERE IS SOMEBODY WHO HAS

GOT A MASS AT THE BASE OF

YOUR SPINE.

OH, IT HAS BEEN PAINFUL.

IT IS JUST LIKE A BOIL.

IT HURTS ALL OF THE TIME.

WELL, THAT THING IS GOING

TO, LIKE, RUPTURE AND

DISSOLVE, AND ALL OF THE

PAIN WILL LEAVE.

EVEN AS WE SPEAK NOW, IN

JESUS' NAME, TOUCH.

WENDY?

Wendy: THERE IS A MAN

NAMED JOE, AND YOU'VE GOT A

FOOT FUNGUS, AND IT IS VERY

UNCOMFORTABLE TO SAY THE

LEAST.

AND YOU HAVE BEEN JUST

SUFFERING WITH THIS.

AND GOD IS TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOU ARE BEING HEALED.

JUST RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: A NECK AND

SHOULDER -- IT HAS BEEN A

SPASM.

YOUR SHOULDER MUSCLE HAS

SPASMED, AND REACH OUT AND

TEACH IT AND MOVE YOUR NECK

AND HEEL IN JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: THERE IS A LADY

NAMED SUSAN, AND THERE IS A

GROWTH ON YOUR BACK.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT

IT IS PAINFUL.

YOU'VE BEEN SUFFERING WITH

THIS FOR A WHILE, AND GOD IS

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT RIGHT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: MARY HAS A PROBLEM

IN YOUR UTERUS.

IT IS LIKE A GROWTH.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE

GROWTHS.

THE GROWTH IS GOING AWAY

RIGHT NOW.

THE UTERINE CYSTS ARE GOING

TO BE HEALED, AND YOU WILL

CONCEIVE A CHILD.

GOD HAS GIVEN YOU FERTILITY,

AND YOU WILL BE A MOTHER IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, CALL US,

PLEASE.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

WE'RE GLAD TO TALK TO YOU

AND DO WHAT WE CAN TO HELP

YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

PLEASE TELL US WHAT GOD HAS

DONE.

WE'D LOVE TO HAVE THESE

REPORTS OF ANSWERS TO

PRAYER.

WE'VE GOT AN INCREDIBLE

STORY COMING UP FOR YOU, AND

WENDY HAS MORE ABOUT IT.

Wendy: INDEED.

STILL AHEAD, WE'VE GOT A

PIECE OF BREAD THAT BRINGS A

PRISONER TO HIS SENSES.

THE GUYS TO THE LEFT AND

RIGHT START THROWING THEIR

BLANKET OUT THERE TO GRAB

THAT BREAD.

I JUST HAD THIS VISUAL.

AND I'VE FALLEN AS LOW AS I

CAN GO.

Wendy: HEAR THE PRAYER

THAT PICKED HIM UP, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

PAPER

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

ANTI-SEMITISM IS ON THE RISE

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND ANNUAL REPORT BY ISRAELI

RESEARCHERS AT TEL AVIV

UNIVERSITY SAYS

ANTI-SEMITISM SURGED

WORLDWIDE IN 2015.

THE INCIDENTS WERE MOSTLY IN

WESTERN EUROPE.

A 20% INCREASE OVER 2013.

AND THE TAX AGAINST JEWS IN

THE UNITED STATES ROSE BY

21%, WITH 912 INCIDENTS.

BOTH REPORTS SAY THE IN

INCREASE WAS PARTLY LINKED

TO LAST SUMMER'S WAR BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND HAMAS IN THE GAZA

STRIP.

> THE SOUNDS OF GOSPEL

MUSIC FILLED THE EAST ROOM

OF THE WHITE HOUSE ON

TUESDAY.

* YOU SAY ONE DAY

*

THE PRESIDENT AND FIRST

LADY INVITED TOP RECORDING

CHRISTIAN ARTISTS TO THE

WHITE HOUSE FOR A

CELEBRATION OF GOSPEL

MUSIC.

President Obama: AS

JACKSON HERSELF ONCE SAID,

BLUES ARE THE SONGS OF

DISPAIR, BUT GOSPEL SONGS

ARE THE SONGS OF HOPE.

HOPE THAT WE MIGHT ARISE

ABOVE OUR FAILURES AND

DISAPPOINTMENTS, HOPE THAT

WE MIGHT RESAFE HIS

REDEMPTION.

THE EVENT WAS THE LATEST

OF THE "PERFORMANCE AT THE

WHITE HOUSE" SERIES AND THE

PROGRAM AIRS JUNE 26th.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN BY GOING TO

OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: I WANT TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO ONE OF THE

WORST GUYS YOU'VE EVER HEARD

OF IN ALL YOUR LIFE.

HIS NAME IS JOHN BORROW.

HE SOLD DRUGS AND STOLE TO

FEED HIS COCAINE HABIT.

YEARS BEFORE HE STARTED

USING COKE, JOHN SAYS HE WAS

HOOKED ON SOMETHING ELSE.

HE WAS TOTALLY ADDICTED TO

SIN.

THERE WAS SOMETHING IN ME

THAT WANTED TO SIN.

I COULDN'T WAIT TO SMOKE

POT.

I COULDN'T WAIT TO DRINK.

I COULDN'T WAIT TO HAVE

SEX.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

THEY WERE LIKE THE FOREFRONT

OF MY MIND.

Reporter: JOHN BORROW

WAS RAISED BY HIS TEENAGED

MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER.

HE SAYS HE DIDN'T HAVE A

FATHER TO LOOK UP TO, AND

THERE WAS NO STRUCTURE AT

HOME.

I THINK I WAS LACKING A

LOT IN THE AREA OF HAVING A

BALANCED HOME, A BALANCED

MOTHER AND FATHER.

THERE WAS PROBABLY A LOT OF

INSECURITY THERE.

Reporter: LEFT TO HIS

OWN DEVICES, HE BEGAN

EXPERIMENTING WITH SEX,

ALCOHOL, AND DRUGS.

BY 14, HE WAS ADDICTED TO

ALL THREE.

I JUST LOVED IT.

IT WAS JUST GREAT.

AND DRINKING AND A BEER,

INTRANEX AND THE NEXT THING

YOU KNOW, I WOULD DRINK A

SIX-PACK AND I'M DRUNK.

Reporter: THEN HE

STARTED GETTING INTO TROUBLE

WITH THE LAW.

HE WAS IN JUVENILE DETENTION

FOR RUNNING AWAY, SELLING

DRUGS AND STEALING.

ONE NIGHT AN OFFICIAL TALKED

TO HIM AT THE DETENTION

CENTER.

THE THING I REMEMBER MOST

IS I COULDN'T WAIT FOR HIM

TO QUIT SPEAKING BECAUSE I

WANTED TO GO TO MY CELL AND

CRY.

BECAUSE THIS GUY, WHAT HE

WAS TALKING ABOUT, HIS

EXPOSURE TO CHRIST, I KNEW I

WANTED THAT.

Reporter: THAT DESIRE

TO CHANGE WAS SHORT-LIVED.

HE CONVINCED HIS PROBATION

OFFICER TO GIVE HIM A CHANCE

AT TEEN CHALLENGE, BUT AFTER

ONLY SIX MONTHS, HE LEFT AND

WENT BACK TO USING AND

SELLING DRUGS.

STILL, HE COULDN'T ESCAPE

WHAT HE LEARNED ABOUT GOD

WHILE HE WAS THERE.

THAT WAS THE BOOK THAT

SET WHAT I SAW AT TEEN

CHALLENGE.

THAT EXPOSED ME TO THE REAL

CHRIST.

SO FROM THAT DAY FORWARD, I

KNEW WHO GOD WAS.

SO I WAS JUST RUNNING FROM

HIM.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

SEVERAL YEARS, JOHN WAS IN

AND OUT OF JAIL FOR VARIOUS

CRIMES.

EVERY TIME HE WAS LOCKED UP

AND RELEASED, HE WOULD FIND

MORE TROUBLE.

I WOULD DRINK TOO MUCH

AND THEN GET SOME COCAINE.

AND THEN I WOULD DO THAT

UNTIL ALL OF MY MONEY WAS

GONE.

AND THEN I WOULD GO ROB

SOMEBODY OR STEAL TO GET

MORE.

Reporter: THEN AT 24,

JOHN ROBBED A CONVENIENCE

STORE.

HE WAS GIVEN A TWO AND A

HALF YEAR SENTENCE.

ONE DAY HE WAS CAUGHT

SELLING MARIJUANA TO AN

INMATE.

THAT LANDED HIM IN SOLITARY

CONFINEMENT FOR 28 DAYS.

WHILE THERE, JOHN READ THE

ONLY BOOK ALLOWED IN

SOLITUDE, THE BIBLE.

THINKING ABOUT HIS LIFE, HE

SAYS HE WAS ASHAMED OF THE

HARM HE CAUSED HIMSELF AND

OTHERS.

I THOUGHT, IF GOD COULD

FORGIVE DAVID, A MAN AFTER

HIS OWN HEART, OF

PREMEDITATED MURDER AND

ADULTERY, SURELY HE CAN

FORGIVE ME.

Reporter: HE SAYS HE

CAME TO HIS SENSES WHEN A

STALE PIECE OF BREAD FELL

OFF THE SERVING CART.

IT WAS LYING THERE, AND

GUYS, LEFT AND RIGHT,

STARTED THROWING THEIR

BLANKET OUT THERE TO GRAB

THAT BREAD.

I JUST HAD THIS VISUAL,

LIKE, WHAT HAVE YOU FALLEN

TO?

I HAVE FALLEN AS LOW AS I

CAN GO.

Reporter: WITH NOWHERE

TO RUN THIS TIME, JOHN

TALKED TO GOD.

STRENGTHEN ME.

HELP ME, FORGIVE ME.

I CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT

YOU.

IMMEDIATELY, IN THAT JAIL

CELL, I LITERALLY CRIED

TEARS.

I SAID, LORD, I DON'T WANT

TO DO THIS ANYMORE.

AND THERE WAS THIS

REFRESHING FEELING THAT CAME

OVER ME.

THERE WAS THIS FEELING OF

REDEMPTION.

UP UNTIL THAT TIME, YOU

KNOW, I KIND OF LIVED UNDER

THE NIKE COMMERCIAL, IF IT

FEELS GOOD TO DO IT, JUST DO

IT.

FOR ME, THAT HAD TAKEN ME TO

A PLACE THAT I DIDN'T LIKE.

SO WHEN I BROKE FREE OF

THAT, SO TO SPEAK, AND CRIED

OUT TO THE LORD, THAT

FREEDOM, IT CHANGED ME.

Reporter: FOR THE

REMAINDER OF HIS SENTENCE,

JOHN BEGAN TO MEMORIZE

SCRIPTURE AND PRAYED EVERY

DAY.

I THANK GOD FOR THE

PENITENTIARY.

IT SAVED ME.

IN ISOLATION, IT HELPED ME.

BECAUSE IT STOPPED ME RONG

LONG ENOUGH TO HEAR THE HOLY

SPIRIT AND GOD SPEAK TO ME.

Reporter: AND NOW HE

HAS BEEN ALCOHOL AND

DRUG-FREE FOR NEARLY 15

YEARS.

REDEMPTION FOR ME WAS A

BETTER WAY.

NEW PLACES, NEW PLAYMATES,

NEW PLAYGROUNDS, CHANGEING

MY ENVIRONMENT.

Reporter: TODAY JOHN IS

AN AUTHOR AND SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESSMAN.

AND HE IS BUILDING THROUGH

THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

THROUGH "A BETTER WAY"

MINISTRY, HE BUILDS SHELTERS

FOR MEN AS THEY OVERCOME

THEIR LIFE CHALLENGES.

MY PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE

HAS CHANGED.

EVERYTHING HAS BRIGHTENED

UP.

I DO FULLY BELIEVE THAT ALL

THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR

GOOD FOR THOSE WHO LOVE THE

LORD AND ARE CALLED TO HIS

PURPOSE.

ALL I CAN DO IS PRAISE GOD

EVERY DAY FOR WHAT HE HAS

DONE.

Pat: THE BIBLE TELLS A

STORY -- JESUS TELLS A STORY

ABOUT A WELL-TO-DO MAN WHO

HAD A YOUNG SON.

AND THE SON SAID TO THE

FATHER, GIVE ME MY SHARE OF

THE IN TER INHERITANCE AND

THE FATHER SAID, OKAY.

AND HE TOOK A SUBSTANTIAL

AMOUNT OF MONEY AND GAVE IT

TO THE SON AND SAID, THERE

IS YOUR INHERITANCE.

AND THE KID GOES OFF TO A

DISTANT LAND.

AND WHAT DID HE DO WITH IT?

HE HIRED PROSTITUTES, SO HE

MADE FOR SEX.

AND HE GOT HIMSELF A PRETTY

BIG HOUSE AND SOME SERVANTS,

AND HE STARTED HAVING

FABULOUS PARTIES, LOTS OF

FOOD, LOTS OF BOOZE, LOTS OF

WHATEVER THEY DID IN THOSE

DAYS.

THEY CALLED IT RIOTOUS

LIVING.

HE WASTED HIS SUBSTANCE IN

RIOTOUS LIVING.

AND THEN THERE CAME A FAMINE

IN THE LAND.

AND HE DIDN'T HAVE ANYMORE

MONEY.

AND ALL THOSE FRIENDS AND

THOSE PROSTITUTES AND THOSE

OTHERS, THEY DIDN'T WANT

ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM

BECAUSE HIS MONEY RAN OUT.

THEY WERE FAIR-WEATHER

FRIENDS.

THEY WERE WITH HIM WHEN HE

HAD GOOD MONEY, BUT THEY

WERE AWAY FROM HIM WHEN HE

DIDN'T HAVE ANYMENT AND

ANY.

AND HE WAS STARVING TO

DEATH.

SO HE HIRED HIMSELF OUT TO A

LOCAL FARMER.

AND THE GUY SAID, OKAY, YOU

CAN GO FEED MY PIGS.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE

WOULD FILL HIS BELLY WITH

THE HUSKS, THE CAROBS THAT

THE PIGS WERE EATING.

HE WOULD FIGHT THE PIGS OFF

TO GET A FEW SCRAPS OF THESE

CAROB BEANS, SOMETHING TO

PUT IN HIS STOMACH.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, IN THE

MIDST OF ALL THAT, HE CAME

TO HIMSELF.

THAT'S WHAT JOHN BORROW DID,

HE CAME TO HIMSELF.

AND HE SAID, HOW MANY OF MY

SERVANTS OF MY FATHER HAVE

BREAD ENOUGH TO SPARE, AND

HERE I AM PERISHING WITH

HUNGER.

I'LL ARISE AND GO TO MY

FATHER.

AND YOU KNOW THE STORY.

HE SAID, I'VE SINNED.

AND SO HE WENT TO THE

FATHER.

AND THE ONLY TIME WE HAVE

GOD RUNNING -- THE FATHER

ACTUALLY RAN TO THE SON AND

EMBRACED HIM.

HE SAID, YOU WERE DEAD AND

NOW YOU'RE A LIVE.

AND HE SAID, GIVE ME A ROBE

TO PUT ON HIM AND A RING ON

HIS FINGER AND SHOES ON HIS

FEET.

AND LET'S HAVE A PARTY AND

LET'S CELEBRATE.

THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE

OF THE LORD OVER ONE SINNER

WHO REPENTS.

JOHN BORROW CAME TO THE LORD

AND THERE WAS JOY.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, YOU SAY,

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND, I HAVE

SINNED.

YOU HAVEN'T SINNED ANYMORE

THAN THE PEOPLE IN THE

BIBLE.

YOU HAVEN'T SINNED ANYMORE

THAN JOHN BORROW.

YOU'VE HAD AN ABORTION OR

YOU WERE HAVING ILLICIT SEX,

OR YOU'RE WATCHING PORN, GOD

WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT.

SO YOU MISTREATED YOUR WIFE

AND CHILDREN, GOD WILL

FORGIVE THAT.

BUT HE ASKS THAT YOU DO LIKE

THE PRODIGAL SON, AND COME

TO YOURSELF AND REPENT.

YOU WANT TO DO THAT RIGHT

NOW?

I WANT TO GIVE YOU A

CHANCE.

I WANT YOU TO DO SOMETHING

FOR ME, I WANT YOU TO ASK

GOD TO FORGIVE YOU.

I WANT YOU TO HUMBLE

YOURSELF BEFORE THE LORD AND

LET HIM TAKE OVER.

RIGHT NOW, WHEREVER YOU ARE,

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD

AND PRAY THESE WORDS: LORD,

JESUS CHRIST -- PRAYER WITH

ME NOW.

LORD, JESUS CHRIST, I'M

SORRY.

GOD, I'M SORRY.

I'VE KNOWN TO DO BETTER, BUT

I DIDN'T.

LORD, I HAVE SOUGHT SIN.

I HAVE SOUGHT THE FLESH.

I HAVE SOUGHT MIND-NUMBING

SUBSTANCES.

I'VE BEEN EVIL TO PEOPLE WHO

HAVE BEEN KIND TO ME.

I'M SORRY, LORD.

AND I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE

ME.

I'M NOT WORTHY OF YOU, LORD,

BUT I ASK YOUR FORGIVENESS.

AND RIGHT NOW I TURN TO

YOU.

I RECEIVE THE SALVATION THAT

IS OFFERED IN JESUS CHRIST,

AND I MAKE HIM THE SAVIOR

AND LORD OF MY LIFE.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

NOW, LISTEN, IF YOU PRAYED

WITH ME JUST THEN, THE

ANGELS OF HEAVEN ARE

REJOICING, AND THE FATHER

WILL RUN AND THROW HIS ARMS

AROUND YOU AND SAY, WELCOME

HOME, CHILD.

YOU'RE PART OF THE FAMILY

NOW.

HE LOVES YOU.

SO I WANT YOU TO DO

SOMETHING TO SETTLE IT.

I'VE GOT SOMETHING THAT WILL

HELP YOU.

SOME YEARS AGO, I WENT INTO

THE AUDIO ROOM, AND I SAT

BEFORE THE MACHINES IN

THERE.

AND I DID A 73-MINUTE

TEACHING.

IT'S GOT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

YOU'RE BORN AGAIN?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE AN

EXCHANGED LIFE?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE

YOUR SINS FORGIVEN?

WHAT IF YOU SIN, WHAT WILL

HAPPEN NEXT?

WHAT ABOUT THE BAPTISM OF

THE SPIRIT?

WHAT ABOUT THE SECOND

COMING?

IT IS ALL HERE.

IT IS VERY COMPACT.

YOU CAN PUT THIS ON YOUR

C.D. PLAYER, AND IT'S THERE

FOR YOU.

I WILL GIVE THIS TO YOU,

ALONG WITH THE BOOK.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, GO TO

YOUR PHONES AND CALL AND

SAY, I WANT THAT LITTLE

PACKET.

THE NUMBER IS

1-800-759-0700.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

HERE'S WENDY.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

COMING UP, PAT RETURNS TO

THE HOT SEAT FOR "BRING IT

ON."

LASHON ASKS, "I LOOKED AT

PORN TWICE IN THE LAST

YEAR.

I'M AFRAID TO TELL MY

GIRLFRIEND BECAUSE I DON'T

WANT HER TO LEAVE ME.

SHOULD I TELL HER?"

WELL TACKLWE'LL TACKLE THAT

AND MORE RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: GOODNESS

GRACIOUS.

Wendy: SHARISA WAS THE

ONLY CHRISTIAN IN HER HINDU

VILLAGE WHEN SHE BEGAN FOR

WATER.

TODAY, PEOPLE COME TO HER

HOUSE TO STUDY THE BIBLE AND

PRAY TOGETHER, ALL BECAUSE

OF SOMETHING CALLED "THE

JESUS WELL."

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: THIS POLLUTED

RIVER IN SOUTHWEST INDIA

PROVIDES WATER FOR THE

VILLAGE.

SO CBN'S LIVING WATERS TEAM

CAME AND SAID THEY WOULD TRY

TO DIG A WELL.

SINCE SHARISSA WAS THE ONLY

CHRISTIAN IN THE HINDU

VILLAGE, CBN ASKED HER TO

PRAY BEFORE THE DRILLING

BEGAN.

I TOLD JESUS WE

DESPERATELY NEEDED WATER AND

ASKED HIM FOR HIS HELP.

BUT AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS

OF DRILLING, CBN DIDN'T GET

ANY WATER.

Reporter: THE VILLAGERS

STARTED BLAMING SHARISSA AND

HER GOD.

WE TOLD HER TO DO THE

HINDU RITUALS BEFORE THE

DRILLING BEGAN, BUT SHE

REFUSED.

WE KNEW THAT WAS WHY NO

WATER WAS COMING OUT.

I KEPT MY FAITH IN JESUS,

AND FINALLY JESUS GAVE US

WATER.

THE NEXT DAY, WHEN WE SAW

WATER COMING OUT, WE KNEW IT

WAS A MIRACLE.

SO WE STARTED BELIEVING IN

JESUS CHRIST.

Reporter: NOW PEOPLE

FROM HER VILLAGE COME TO HER

HOME TO STUDY THE BIBLE,

PRAY, AND WORSHIP.

WHEN PEOPLE COME HERE FOR

WATER, THEY SAY THEY ARE

GETTING IT FROM "THE JESUS

WELL."

I THANK JESUS FOR THIS

MIRACLE AND FOR HIM USING

CBN TO HELP US.

Wendy: AH, LOOK AT THAT

CLEAN, FRESH WATER.

WE JUST TAKE IT FOR GRANTED,

BUT THAT WAS LIFE-GIVING

WATER TO THEM.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE A PART

OF BRINGING LIFE-GIVING

WATER, AS WELL AS THE WORD

OF GOD TO PEOPLE ALL OVER

THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH

TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR

SCREEN, 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com AND JOIN THAT WAY.

WHEN YOU DO, WE HAVE A

SPECIAL GIFT FOR YOU.

IT IS PAT'S NEW TEACHING

CALLED "BE HEALED."

IT IS A POWERFUL TEACHING

THAT YOU WILL LOVE.

IF YOU'RE GOING THROUGH

SOMETHING IN YOUR BODY, YOU

NEED TO GET THIS.

THIS WILL REALLY ENCOURAGE

YOU.

SO WE WANT YOU TO HAVE

THAT.

ALL RIGHT, PAT, GUESS WHAT?

Pat: LET'S GO FOR IT.

Wendy: LASHON

WRITES, "PAT, I RECENTLY

WATCHED PORN TWICE.

I'VE BEEN FREE FROM IT FOR

ALMOST A YEAR, BUT I LET THE

DEVIL AND MY FLESH GET THE

BEST OF ME.

AND I MADE A VOW TO GOD NOT

TO DO MY GIRLFRIEND WRONG.

I KNOW GOD PUT US TOGETHER,

AND NOW I'M AFRAID OF WHAT

MAY HAPPEN IF I TELL HER.

I REPENTED, AND I LOVE HER.

DO YOU THINK SHE WILL GIVE

ME A SECOND CHANCE?

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: WELL, I DON'T KNOW

WHO YOUR GIRLFRIEND IS, BUT

IF YOU CAN'T SHARE SOMETHING

LIKE THAT, SOMETHING IS

WRONG.

IT IS ONE THING TO BE

ADDICTED TO PORN.

IF YOU ARE, YOU'RE AN ADDICT

AND YOU SHOULDN'T GET

MARRIED OR ANYTHING ELSE.

YOU OUGHT TO GET YOURSELF TO

A PSYCHIATRIST OR COUNSELLOR

AND GET DELIVERED FROM

THAT.

ADDICTION TO PORN IS

TERRIBLE.

THE FACT THAT ALONG THE WAY,

THAT YOU WATCHED A PORN SITE

FOR A FEW MINUTES OR A HALF

HOUR OR WHATEVER, TWICE IN A

YEAR -- THERE IS WRONG

WITH -- IF YOU'RE CLOSE

ENOUGH TO YOUR GIRLFRIEND

WHERE YOU CAN SAY, LISTEN,

THERE IS SOMETHING I WANT

YOU TO HELP ME WITH BECAUSE

I WANT US TO REALLY LOVE

EACH OTHER.

THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE TALKS

ABOUT IT IS BETTER TO BE

MARRIED THAN TO BURN WITH

DESIRE.

YOU'RE OUT THERE, AND YOU'RE

TEMPTED.

SO THE IDEA IS THAT YOU

SHOULD LOVE YOUR WIFE AND

SATISFY YOURSELF WITH YOUR

WIFE OR YOUR HUSBAND AND NOT

SOME PORN THING.

BUT IT DOESN'T HURT TO BE

FRANK AND HONEST AND BUILD A

RELATIONSHIP.

IF YOU'RE GIRLFRIEND WILL

TAKE FLIGHT BECAUSE YOU

WATCHED ONE PORN MOVIE, I

MEAN, YOU DON'T WANT THAT AS

A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP.

OKAY.

Wendy: WELL, TERRY

WRITES, "MY BEST FRIEND AND

I HAD A LITTLE DISAGREEMENT

LAST NIGHT WHILE WE WERE

STUDYING THE BIBLE.

SHE SAID THAT EVERYONE HAS

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I TOLD HER SHE IS WRONG

BECAUSE A PERSON DOESN'T

RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

UNTIL THEY ACCEPT JESUS

CHRIST AS THEIR SAVIOR.

AM I RIGHT?

I HOPE SO BECAUSE I BET HER

A DINNER.

WE DECIDED TO ASK YOU TO

SOLVE THIS."

Pat: I HOPE YOU GET A

GOOD DINNER BECAUSE YOU'RE

RIGHT.

YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

WHEN YOU RECEIVE JESUS AS

SAVIOR, AND NOT BEFORE.

THE IDEA IS THAT

EVERYBODY -- THAT'S THE

UNIVERSALISTS' POINT OF VIEW

AND IT IS JUST WRONG.

EVERYBODY IS NOT GOING TO

GET SAVED.

ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED

THE LORD.

IT IS JUST THE WAY IT IS.

WE ALL HAVE SINS, AND WE'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR

OUR SINS.

WHAT WE DID WITH THE

KNOWLEDGE THAT WAS GIVEN TO

US, WE'RE GOING TO BE HELD

ACCOUNTABLE FOR.

AND THOSE WHO RECEIVED JESUS

WILL RECEIVE MERCY.

THAT'S THE WAY IT WORKS.

THANKS FOR THOSE QUESTIONS.

ENJOY YOUR DINNER.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM EXODUS 20: "HONOR

YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER AND

YOUR DAYS WILL BE LONG ON

THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR

GOD IS GIVING YOU."

TOMORROW WE'RE GOING TO TALK

ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST AND

SOMEBODY WHO'S GRANDSONS

WERE KILLED BY THAT AWFUL

OKLAHOMA BOMBER.

IT IS QUITE A STORY.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

GOD BLESS YOU AND HAVE A

GREAT DAY.

BYE-BYE.
