THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

Charlene: AND I'M

CHARLENE AARON.

ITS TERROR HAS SPREAD FROM

AS SYRIA AND IRAQ.

ISIS' IDEOLOGY AND RADICAL

ISLAM IS GAINING INFLUENCE

AROUND THE WORLD, INCLUDING

RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA.

THE U.S. AND COALITION

FORCES CONTINUE TO BOMBARD

ISIS MILITANTS IN IRAQ AND

SYRIA, TAKING OUT MAJOR

TARGETS OF THE TERRORIST

GROUP.

ISIS HAS LOST THE KEY CITY

OF TIKRIT IN IRAQ, AND IRAQI

SECURITY HAVE MADE SOME

GAINS AGAINST ISIS IN

RAMADI.

ERICK STAKELBECK SAYS THE

U.S. AND OTHER WORLD LEADERS

AREN'T WILLING TO DO WHAT IT

TAKES TO REALLY ATTACK

ISIS.

Erick: THE WILL IS NOT

THERE.

ISIS IS NOT SOME 800-POUND

GORILLA.

YES, THEY HAVE SOME 30,000

TO 40,000 FOOT SOLDIERS IN

THE HEART OF THE MIDDLE

EAST, AND THEY CONTROL SOME

30,000 SQUARE MILES OF

TERRITORY, BUT THEY'RE NOT

MATCH FOR THE MIGHT OF THE

UNITED STATES MILITARY OR

EUROPEAN NATIONS.

Charlene: BUT DESPITE

THE UGH BATTLES IN IRAQ,

WITH WINS AND LOSSES, THE

INFLUENCE OF ISIS AND

RADICAL ISLAM IS STILL

SCORING VICTORIES AROUND THE

WORLD BY MAKING NEW

CONVERTS.

HERE IN THE U.S., THERE HAVE

BEEN SEVERAL CASES JUST IN

THE LAST WEEK.

FOUR OF THE SIX MEN FROM

MINNESOTA, ACCUSED OF TRYING

TO JOIN ISIS, HAVE BEEN

ORDERED TO STAY IN JAIL

UNTIL THEIR TRIAL.

THE OTHER TWO DEFENDANTS

WILL APPEAR IN A CALIFORNIA

COURT.

U.S. ATTORNEY ANDREW LUGER

SAYS THEY HAD BEEN MAKING

THEIR PLANS FOR 10 MONTHS.

TO BE CLEAR, WE HAVE A

TERROR RECRUITING PROBLEM IN

MINNESOTA.

AND THIS CASE DEMONSTRATES

HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO PUT

AN END TO RECRUITING HERE.

THESE ARE FOCUSED MEN WHO

ARE INTENT ON JOINING A

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION BY

ANY MEANS POSSIBLE.

Charlene: AND A

20-YEAR-OLD WOMAN FROM

ALABAMA LEFT HER FAMILY TO

JOIN ISIS AFTER BEING

RECRUITED ON THE INTERNET.

A TEENAGER WHO PLOTTED TO

JOIN ISIS AND KILL AMERICAN

SOLDIERS HAS BEEN SENTENCED

TO FIVE YEARS IN PRISON.

THE 16-YEAR-OLD PLANNED TO

ROB A GUN STORE NEAR

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, AND

ATTACK A U.S. MILITARY BASE

BEFORE TRAVELLING TO SYRIA

TO FIGHT FOR ISIS.

ISIS IS GAINING RECRUITS AND

FOLLOWERS IN OTHER COUNTRIES

AS WELL.

THREE SCHOOL GIRLS FROM

LONDON HAVE REPORTEDLY

JOINED AN ALL-FEMALE ISIS

MALITIA IN SYRIA.

IN FRANCE, A 24-YEAR-OLD

TECHNOLOGY STUDENT IN PARIS

WAS CAPTURED THIS WEEK AFTER

HE ACCIDENTALLY SHOT

HIMSELF.

AUTHORITIES SAY HE WAS

PLANNING TO ATTACK AT LEAST

ONE CHURCH.

A FRENCH PROSECUTOR SAYS

al-QAEDA AND ISIS DOCUMENTS

WERE FOUND IN THE SUSPECT'S

APARTMENT.

ISIS BELIEVES IN

ESTABLISHING AN ISLAMIC

STATE, A CALIPHATE, AND NOT

ONLY IS IT GAINING NEW

RECRUITS IN THE MIDDLE EAST,

BUT IT IS ALSO BRINGING THEM

IN FROM AROUND THE WORLD,

THROUGH ITS VIDEOS AND

INTERNET MARKETING, D

THOSE RECRUITS COULD JOIN

ISIS IN IRAQ ANDYRIA.

AND THEY COULD ALSO GO BACK

TO THEIR HOME COUNTRIES AND

LAUNCH TERRORIST ATTACKS,

INCLUDING RIGHT HERE IN

AMERICA.

WHILE RECENT ARRESTS SHOW

OFFICIALS ARE SUCCEEDING IN

THEIR EFFORTS TO DISRUPT

ISIS RECRUITS, AUTHORITIES

DON'T SEE THE LURE OF ISIS

RECEDING ANY TIME SOON.

Efrem: ITALIAN POLICE

ARE ARRESTING SUSPECTED

MEMBERS OF AN ISLAMIC TERROR

RING.

MEMBERS ARE ACCUSED OF

HELPING TO EXECUTE ATTACKS

IN PAKISTAN, INCLUDING A

MARKET BOMBING THAT KILLED

MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE.

ANTI-TERRORISM POLICE IN

SARDINIA ARE IN THE PROCESS

OF EXECUTING 18 ARRESTS

WARRANTS.

THE POLICE SAY THE TERROR

NETWORK'S GOAL WAS TO GRATE

AN I INSURRECTION AGAINST

PAKISTAN'S GOVERNMENT.

Charlene: HILLARY

CLINTON IS UNDER FIRE AGAIN

FOR DONATIONS TO THE CLINTON

FOUNDATION.

DONATIONS THAT GIVE THE

APPEARANCE OF RUSSIAN

INFLUENCE OVER U.S. POLICY

WHEN HILLARY WAS SECRETARY

OF STATE.

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM

RUSSIAN INTERESTS FLOWED TO

THE CLINTONS, WHILE HER

STATE DEPARTMENT WAS

APPROVING A DEAL FOR RUSSIA

TO BUY URANIUM MINES INSIDE

THE U.S.

AND THE CLINTONS DID NOT

LIVE UP TO THEIR PROMISE TO

DISCLOSE THE DONATIONS.

HILLARY CLINTON IS

DISMISSING THE REPORTS AS

CONSPIRACY THEORIES.

Efrem: PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS CALLING FOR A FULL REVIEW

OF THE U.S. DRONE STRIKES

THAT ACCIDENTALLY KILLED TWO

HOSTAGES IN PAKISTAN.

C.I.A. OFFICIALS SAY THEY

MONITORED AN al-QAEDA

COMPOUND FOR HUNDREDS OF

HOURS AND SAW NO SIGNS OF

CIVILIANS THERE.

BUT IT WAS TOO LATE WHEN

THEY REALIZED AN AMERICAN AN

ITALIAN AIDE WORKER WERE

BEING HELD HOSTAGE IN THAT

SAME CAMP.

THE DRONE STRIKE ALSO

KILLED TWO OTHER AMERICANS.

ADAM GADAN AND AHMED

FAROUSK.

THEY WERE BOTH al-QAEDA

OPERATIVES.

Charlene: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS WORKING TO

REPAIR RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL

AND PRO-ISRAEL DEMOCRATS.

THE VICE PRESIDENT SAYS

AMERICA'S DESIRE TO PROTECT

THE JEWISH STATE IS

PERSONAL.

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA IS NOW

TRYING TO REPAIR RELATIONS

WITH AMERICAN JEWS AND

PRO-ISRAEL DEMOCRATS IN

CONGRESS AS HE WORKS TO SEAL

HIS NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN.

Efrem: NEXT WEEK THE

U.S. SUPREME COURT WILL HEAR

CASES LIKELY TO DETERMINE

WHETHER SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

WILL BECOME LEGAL RIGHT

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

SOME BELIEVE THE JUSTICES

HAVE ALREADY DECIDED TO

CREATE THAT RIGHT BEFORE

THEY ACTUALLY HEAR THE

CASE.

BUT AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

OTHERS SAY IT IS FAR FROM

DECIDED.

Reporter: A PANEL

DISCUSSION OF THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL S

SWIMMING UPSTREAM AGAINST

CONVENTIONAL THOUGHT, THAT

IS, IT IS A FOREGONE

CONCLUSION THAT THE SUPREME

COURT JUSTICES WILL RULE

THAT HOMOSEXUALS HAVE THE

SAME RIGHT TO MARRIAGE AS

HETEROSEXUALS.

BUT THERE IS EVIDENCE THAT

THE JUSTICES WON'T RUBBER

STAMP GAY MARRIAGES.

WHEN THE LAWYERS WALK

INTO THAT COURTROOM ON

TUESDAY MORNING, THEY'LL BE

WALKING INTO A SITUATION

WHERE THERE ARE THREE AND A

HALF JUSTICES WHO HAVE SAID

NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

MORE INTERESTING

PROPOSITIONS BROUGHT UP AT

THIS PANEL DISCUSSION IS

MAYBE THE CHRISTIANS OF THE

WORLD OWE IT TO THE

HOMOSEXUALS TO POINT OUT THE

GAY LIFESTYLE IS WRONG.

IT ALSO SAYS THAT THE

BEHAVIOR IS DAMAGING AND

HARMFUL TO YOUR ETERNAL

SALVATION.

BUT THEY ALSO KNOW, FROM THE

EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE, THAT THE

BEHAVIOR IS DAMAGING TO YOUR

BODY AS WELL.

Reporter: WESTIN ARGUED

CHRISTIANS NEED TO SAY TO

GAYS --

WE LOVE YOU ENOUGH TO

TELL YOU THIS IS HARMFUL.

WE WILL TAKE THE BIGGOTED

LABEL SO WE CAN TELL YOU

ABOUT THIS.

Reporter: THE JUSTICES

HAVE ROLLED FOUR CASES

TOGETHER TO LET THEM DECIDE,

MUST OTHER STATES RECOGNIZE

OTHER STATE'S LAWS, AND DOES

THE CONSTITUTION ALLOW IT?

Charlene: RESEARCH

SHOWS MARRIAGE USED TO BE

THE CORNERSTONE OF ADULT

LIFE, AND IT HAS NOW BECOME

THE CAPSTONE.

AND CHRISTIAN SINGLES ARE

FINDING THAT GOD HAS A

PURPOSE AND A PLAN FOR THIS

SEASON IN THEIR LIVES.

THESE MEN AND WOMEN GATHERED

AT "NEW LIFE PROVIDENCE"

CHURCH AND HAVE THREE THINGS

IN COMMON: THEY ARE

CHRISTIAN, OVER THE AGE OF

30, AND THEY ARE ALL

SINGLE.

SINGLENESS IS A BIG ISSUE

IN OUR CULTURE.

AND THE CHURCH IS A GOOD

PLACE TO TALK ABOUT IT.

SINGLE PEOPLE STRUGGLE JUST

LIKE MARRIED PEOPLE.

Charlene: WENDY

GRIFFITH RECENTLY TALKED TO

THE GROUP.

SHE TALKED CANDIDLY ABOUT

HER JOURNEY AS A SINGLE

WOMAN.

AND THE HEARTBREAK THAT

HELPED HER FIGURE OUT THE

KIND OF LOVE GOD HAS IN

STORE FOR HER.

ONE THING I LEARNED THAT

GOD SHOWED ME AFTER THE

BREAKUP WAS THAT I HAD LOVED

HIM, BUT I HAD NOT LOVED

MYSELF.

WHEN YOU KNOW YOUR OWN

VALUE, YOU DON'T SETTLE FOR

BAD BEHAVIOR.

Charlene: THAT LESSON

TURNED INTO A BOOK, "YOU ARE

A PRIZE TO BE WON."

A BOOK -- I FELT LIKE IT

WAS WHAT I HAD JUST GONE

THROUGH.

AND IT REALLY TRANSITIONED

ME ON TO A TOTAL DIFFERENT

PATH OF CONFIDENCE AND

STANDING UP FOR MYSELF.

I STAND IN AMAZEMENT OF

GOD, HOW HE CAN TAKE THE

WORST YEAR OF OUR LIFE, OUR

DEEPEST PAIN, HEARTACHE, AND

TURN IT INTO A BLESSING FOR

OTHERS.

Reporter: THAT'S

EXACTLY WHAT GOD DID FOR

MELISSA.

SHE IS A SUCCESSFUL

ENTREPRENEUR LIVING IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE RING

ON HER FINGER, SHE IS NOT

SINGLE.

BUT SHE SAYS HER JOURNEY IS

SOMETHING OTHERS CAN LEARN

FROM.

I STARTED DATING, LIKE

MOST SINGLE WOMEN, IN MY

20s.

AND FELL IN LOVE WITH A

GENTLEMAN I THOUGHT WOULD BE

MY LIFE PARTNER AND THAT I

WOULD MARRY.

AND SUDDENLY WHEN I WAS 25,

HE DIED.

HE WAS PLAYING BASKETBALL

AND COLLAPSED.

AND SUDDENLY I'M DEALING

WITH A QUESTION OF, AM I

GOING TO FIND LOVE AGAIN?

AND IF SO, DO I EVEN WANT TO

LIVE AGAIN?

Reporter: SHE SAYS

AFTER GOD HEALED HER FROM

HER TIME OF HEARTBREAK AND

GRIEF, HER CAREER AS A BRAND

STRATEGIST TOOK OFF.

SHE HAS WORKED WITH SINGER

MARR MARY J. BLIGE, AND THE

LIST GOES ON.

BEFORE I LOOKED UP, IT

WAS 10 YEARS LATER, AND I

WAS STILL SINGLE.

I HAD A GREAT CAREER, BUT I

WAS NOT MARRIED.

Charlene: THEN GOD TOLD

HER THIS...

HE SHOWED ME, THIS IS WHO

YOU HAVE BECOME, AND ALLOW

ME TO LP YOU MOVE INTO WHO

YOU REALLY ARE.

Charlene: SHE SAYS GOD

KNOWS THE BIG PICTURE AND

YOUR FULL POTENTIAL, AND SO

WHEN YOU WAIT ON HIM, THAT'S

WHEN HE CAN WORK.

I'M OUT SOCIALIZING,

MEETING AND CONNECTING WITH

PEOPLE, AND A GUY STOPS ME

AND SAYS, YOU SHOULD SMILE

MORE OFTEN.

I LITERALLY BOUGHT A SHIRT

THAT SAID, "MAKE SURE YOU

SMILE BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW

WHO IS GOING TO FALL IN LOVE

WITH YOUR SMILE."

SO I SAID THANK YOU.

AND A GENTLEMAN WAS WALKING

BEHIND THE GUY WHO SAID THAT

TO ME.

AND HE LOOKED AT ME AND

SAID, STOP TALKING TO HIM.

COME TALK TO ME.

Charlene: LITTLE DID

SHE KNOW, THAT MAN WOULD

BECOME HER HUSBAND, AND HER

ENTIRE JOURNEY AS A SINGLE

WOMAN WOULD PROMPT HER TO

CREATE AN ORGANIZATION

CALLED "WOMEN IN THE

SPOTLIGHT."

IT HELPS WOMEN SUCCEED

WITHOUT SUCCES SACRIFICING

THEIR IDENTITY.

MY ADVICE IS TO STEP UP

YOUR FAITH.

AND WHEN I SAY THAT, IT IS

TO EXPECT GOD TO DO MORE.

WHEN I SAW YOU SMILE FOR

THE FIRST TIME, MY HEART

JUMPED.

I SAID, THIS IS A DESIRE

OF MY HEART.

I BELIEVE THAT YOU PUT IT IN

MY HEART.

SO I DON'T CARE IF THE

STATISTICS ARE NOT IN MY

FAVOR AS AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN

FEMALE LIVING IN ATLANTA.

ALL I NEED IS ONE.

MAKE HIM, FIND HIM, DO WHAT

YOU'VE GOT TO DO.

BUT I JUST NEED ONE.

Charlene: LIKE MELISSA,

WENDY IS PUTTING HER FAITH

INTO ACTION, AND EVEN

DEDICATED HER BOOK TO HER

FUTURE HUSBAND.

SHE URGES SINGLES TO NOT

LOSE HOPE IN THE WAITING.

Wendy: GOD IS SAYING,

I'VE GOT SOMETHING BETTER

FOR YOU.

I'VE GOT MY BEST FOR YOU.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT I'M

ENCOURAGING WOMEN TO DO, NOT

SETTLE FOR CRUMBS.

Charlene: AND WENDY AND

I WILL BE DOING A LIVE CHAT

ON SOCIAL MEDIA ABOUT THIS

STORY NEXT TUESDAY.

YOU CAN SHARE YOUR STORY

WITH US, OR ASK QUESTIONS.

JUST LOG ON TO CBN NEWS'

Facebook PAGE FOR THE

DETAILS.

Efrem: COMING UP, BIG

THINGS HAPPENING FOR THIS

BIG FAMILY.

HEAR THE LATEST UPDATE FROM

THE DUGGARS AND THEIR JOY IN

CREATING A GODLY HERITAGE.

Efrem: IT IS ANOTHER

EXCITING YEAR FOR THE DUGGAR

FAMILY.

SEASON NINE OF THE T.L.C.

SHOW, "19 KIDS AND

COUNTING," IS WELL UNDER

WAY.

IT IS A SEASON FILLED WITH

LOTS OF BIG NEWS, INCLUDING

GRANDCHILDREN, AND ANOTHER

BIG WEDDING.

JOINING US WITH THE LATEST

ARE THE PATRIARCH AND

MATRIARCH OF THE FAMILY, JIM

BOB AND MICHELLE DUGGAR.

YOU'VE HAD SOME MAJOR LIFE

EVENTS OVER THE LAST YEAR

AND NOW A NEW GRANDCHILD.

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE

GRANDPARENTS ONCE AGAIN?

IT IS THE MOST WONDERFUL

THING TO GET TO BE

GRANDPARENTS.

WE'VE HEARD MANY PEOPLE TALK

ABOUT HOW GREAT IT IS, AND

NOW WE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE

TALKING ABOUT.

IT IS SO MUCH FUN.

WE'RE GOING FROM HAVING

THREE GRANDCHILDREN TO

DOUBLING THE NUMBER OF

GRANDCHILDREN THIS YEAR TO

SIX.

WE ARE THANKFUL, THRILLED,

AND SO EXCITED.

Efrem: WELL, HOW ARE

JILL AND DEREK, AS WELL AS

ALL OF YOUR MARRIED CHILDREN

COPING WITH MARRIAGE?

THEY'RE DOING VERY WELL.

BEN IS A GREAT HUSBAND, AND

JOSH AND ANNA ARE EXPECTING

THEIR FOURTH.

SO IT IS PRETTY BUSY AROUND

THE DUGGAR HOUSE.

AND I THINK LITTLE ISRAEL

NOW IS TWO WEEKS OLD.

HE IS DEFINITELY NOT THAT

LITTLE, THOUGH.

HE STARTED OUT ABOUT TWO

FEET TALL.

AND SO WE'RE JUST ENJOYING

WATCHING HIM GROW EVEN MORE

NOW.

Efrem: AND MOVING SO

FAST.

I'LL TELL YOU.

YOU'VE GOT SOME MORE

GRANDPARENT NEWS ABOUT YOUR

NEWLY MARRIED DAUGHTER,

JESSICA, CORRECT?

YES.

THEY'RE EXPECTING.

AND THIS TIME LAST YEAR THEY

WERE GETTING MARRIED ABOUT

MBER, AND THIS YEAR THEY

WILL BE HAVING THEIR FIRST

CHILD, WELCOMING THEM INTO

YOUR HOME.

WE SAID, JESS, YOU NEVER

KNOW, IT COULD BE TWINS.

THAT KIND OF RUNS IN OUR

FAMILY, YOU KNOW.

Efrem: INDEED, IT

DOES.

SO WHAT DO YOUR YOUNGER

CHILDREN THINK ABOUT ALL OF

THESE WEDDINGS AND THE IDEA

OF BEING LITTLE UNCLES AND

AUNTS?

FOR THEM IT IS MORE

RELATIVES AND FRIENDS TO

PLAY WITH.

Efrem: SO WHAT MAKES

YOU HAPPIEST WHEN YOU THINK

ABOUT YOUR FAMILY AND THE

GODLY HERITAGE YOU'RE

TERRIBLEINESTABLISHING

HERE.

I THINK THE SCRIPTURE

THAT RINGS TRUE IN OUR

HEARTS IS THAT WHEN WE WATCH

OUR CHILDREN RAISING THEIR

CHILDREN, WE HAVE NO GREATER

JOY THAN TO HEAR THAT OUR

CHILDREN WALK IN TRUTH.

AND IT IS SUCH A JOY TO

WATCH JOSH AND ANNA

PARENTING THEIR CHILDREN,

AND HEARING THEM SHARE SOME

OF THE SAME BIBLE STORIES WE

SHARED WITH THEM YEARS AGO.

AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO GET

TO WATCH DEREK IN JILL, AND

LOOK FORWARD TO BEN AND

JESS' LITTLE ONE ARRIVING

SOON.

Efrem: WE ALL HEARD IT

SAID THAT GOD DREAMS BIGGER

DREAMS FOR US THAN WE DO FOR

OURSELVES.

YOU GUYS, 19 KIDS AND

COUNTING, HOW DOES IT

COMPARE TO THE VISION YOU

HAD FOR YOUR LIFE AND

FAMILY.

WHEN WE FIRST STARTED

OFF, WE THOUGHT WE WOULD

HAVE ONE OR TWO OR THREE

CHILDREN.

AND WE SHARE OUR TESTIMONY

ABOUT HOW GOD CHANGED OUR

MIND ON CHILDREN ON

DUGGARFAMILY.COM.

AND WE'RE SO EXCITED FOR

EACH ONE OF OUR CHILDREN.

Efrem: ANOTHER

SURPRISES YOU CAN CLUE US IN

ON?

THERE WAS A LOT OF

CHANGES THIS PAST YEAR IN

OUR FAMILY, AND I THINK

THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT

OF EXCITING THINGS COMING

UP.

AND JOSIAH STARTED A

COURTSHIP WITH A LOVELY

YOUNG LADY.

WE WENT ON A MISSION TRIP TO

EL SALVADOR WITH HER AND HER

DAD AND HER SISTER BACK IN

DECEMBER.

HAD IS PROBABLY SOME MORE

RELATIONSHIPS BREWING.

Efrem: ALL RIGHT, JIM

BOB AND MICHELLE DUGGAR,

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU BOTH AND YOUR

FAMILY.

WE'LL BE WATCHING.

Charlene: UP NEXT, THE

APPLE WATCH IS HERE.

NEW TECH COULD MEAN NEW TECH

EDIQUETTE.

WE'LL EXPLAIN THE DOs AND

DON'Ts OF APPLE WATCH

WEARING, NEXT.

Efrem: WELL, IT IS

HERE, A BIG DAY FOR

APPLE-LOVERS, THE HIGHLY

ANTICIPATED APPLE WATCH IS

NOW RELEASED.

BUT WITH NEW TECH CAN COME

NEW TECH EDIQUETTE

PROBLEMS.

WE HAVE MORE IN THE DIGITAL

DOWNLOAD.

THE APPLE WATCH

OFFICIALLY HIT STORES

TODAY.

AND ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT THE

FIRST SMART WATCH, THE

NUMBERS SAY IT IS THE MOST

ANTICIPATED.

THERE ARE NEARLY ONE MILLION

PRE-SALES.

AND UNLIKE APPLE'S OTHER

DEVICES, YOU NEVER HAVE TO

PUT IT DOWN.

WHICH MEANS A WHOLE NEW

LEVEL OF ANNOYING TECH

EDIQUETTE.

THE ROLES OF EDIQUETTE

ARE EVER GREEN, THEY HAVE

ALWAYS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL

BE.

IT IS ALL ABOUT MAKING OTHER

PEOPLE FEEL SPECIAL, PUTTING

OTHERS FIRST.

AND THAT'S WHAT GOOD MANNERS

ARE ALL ABOUT.

BUT WHEN TECHNOLOGY CAME ON

THE SCENE, THERE ARE ALL OF

THESE DIFFERENT RULES.

SO WE HEAR SOMETHING

BUZZING, WE HEAR SOMETHING

BINGING, AND WE THINK, OH,

WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THAT

FIRST.

AND THAT IS JUST NOT THE

CASE.

SO WHEN AND WHERE IS IT

APPROPRIATE TO USE THIS KIND

OF DEVICE?

JUST LIKE THE SMARTPHONE,

ANY SMARTPHONE, YOU WANT TO

SILENCE IT, AND ESPECIALLY

IN THE WORSHIP CENTER, WHEN

YOU ARE AT CHURCH, AT

FUNERALS, AND ALSO, OF

COURSE, AT WEDDINGS.

IF YOU ARE ON A DATE,

ESPECIALLY A FIRST DATE, IF

YOU'RE ON A JOB IERVIEW,

OR ANY OTHER PLACE THAT YOU

WOULD SILENCE YOUR PHONE.

SO IF YOU'RE USING A

DEVICE, REMEMBER, ALWAYS

THINK: PEOPLE FIRST AND

TECHNOLOGY SECOND.

I'M CALEB PINCHLO, AND THIS

HAS BEEN YOUR DIGITAL

DOWNLOAD.

Charlene: EFREM?

Efrem: SORRY.

SORRY.

PEOPLE FIRST.

YOU'VE GOT IT.

STAY WITH US.

THERE IS MORE TO COME.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Charlene: A BIG MOVIE

ABOUT FAITH IS HITTING

THEATERS THIS WEEKEND.

HERE WITH MORE IS BO BOB

WALLASHEFSKI.

HE IS WITH "PLUGGED IN

ONLINE."

THE NEW MOVIE, "LITTLE BOY,"

IS GETTING TONS OF

ATTENTION.

TELL US ABOUT THE STORY AND

HOW IT RANKS.

MARK BURNETT AND ROMA

DOWNEY HIT ANOTHER HOMERUN.

AS OF TODAY, "LILITTLE BOY"

ON THE BIG SCREEN.

IT IS ABOUT A LITTLE BOY WHO

HAS ALL OF THESE GREAT

ADVENTURES WITH HIS DAD.

AND WEN HIS DAD IS SENT TO

WORLD WAR II, THE BOY, WITH

THE HELP OF A PRIEST, IS

JUST BELIEVING THAT HIS DAD

IS COMING BACK.

AND SO IT IS A POWERFUL LOVE

STORY, IF YOU WILL, BETWEEN

A FATHER AND HIS SON.

Charlene: WOULD YOU

CALL THIS A FAITH-BASED FILM

THEN?

YEAH.

THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

IT IS NOT A FAITH-BASED FILM

IN THE SAME VAIN HAS A

"COURAGEOUS," BUT IT IS MORE

ABOUT HAVING FAITH AND THE

IMPLICATION BECAUSE THE BOY

SPENT SOME TIME WITH A

PRIEST, THAT THE FAITH IS

ABOUT GOD.

BUT THIS IS NOT -- I DON'T

WANT ANYONE TO MISTAKE IT

FOR THERE IS PROBABLY AN

ALTER CALL COMING.

THAT DOESN'T NEGATE THAT IT

IS STILL A GOOD FILM.

THIS IS JUST A GREAT

FAMILY-FRIENDLY FILM WITH A

LITTLE BIT OF WAR VIOLENCE.

Y MIGHT NOT WANT TO TAKE

YOUR YOUNGER KIDS TO, BUT

SOMEWHERE AROUND THE AGE OF

NINE, 10, 11, THERE IS

SOMETHING HERE THIS WEEKEND

THAT YOU CAN TAKE THE FAMILY

TO.

Charlene: OKAY.

SWITCHING GEARS, THERE IS A

NEW ROMANCE MOVIE CALLED

"THE AGE OF ADALINE" COULD

IT MAKE A GOOD DATE MOVIE?

THAT'S QUESTIONABLE.

WE GAVE IT A THREE.

DIFFERENT CAWBLE CAWBLES

ARCOUPLES ARE GOING TO SEE

IT A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.

THE PREMISES IS VERY

INTERESTING TO ME.

IN 1935, THIS YOUNG LADY, 29

YEARS OLD, HAS A CAR WRECK,

AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON SHE

NEVER AGES.

EVERYONE AROUND HER, OF

COURSE, AGES.

HER OWN DAUGHTER AGES, BUT

SHE STAYS AT 29.

WE'VE SEEN SOME MOVIES IN

THE PAST DEALING WITH

IMMORTALITY THAT SEE IT AS A

BLESSING.

THIS FILM TAKES A DIFFERENT

TAKE.

THIS IS THE PART I LIKE

ABOUT IT, SOME GREAT

DISCUSSIONS CAN COME ABOUT

ETERNAL LIFE.

THIS MOVIE SEEMS TO SEE IT

AS A CURSE.

THE BIGGER DISAPPOINTMENT

FOR ME, ALTHOUGH NEVER

EXPLICIT, THIS YOUNG LADY,

WE SEE SEVERAL TIMES, I'LL

JUST SAY UNDER THE COVER

WITH DIFFERENT BOYFRIENDS IN

HER HISTORY.

AND, OF COURSE, WE FIND IT A

DISAPPOINTMENT.

Charlene: BOB, THANK

YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

YOU BET.

Efrem: FINALLY THIS

HOUR, A MESSAGEWE CALL OUR

FRIDAY FAITHFUL.

THIS WAS ON MY HEART AS I

LITERALLY GOT OUT OF BED

THIS MORNING.

WE SO OFTEN HERE YOUNG

PEOPLE TODAY SAY YOLO.

KNOW THIS, YOLO IS WRONG.

WE ARE LIVING THIS LIFE TO

LIVE AGAIN, AND IT IS BEST

TO LIVE IT RIGHT.

THAT IS WHAT GOD IS CALLING

US TO DO, TO BE DIFFERENT

THAN THE REST OF THE WORLD,

AND TO BE THE SALT OF THE

EARTH.

SO YOLO, NO GO.

Charlene: AND THE

CHURCH SAID AMEN.

Efrem: AMEN INDEED.

Charlene: THAT'S IT FOR

NOW ON CBN "NEWSWATCH."

YOU CAN FIND MORE COVERAGE

OF THE ISSUES YOU CARE MOST

ABOUT AT CBNNEWS.COM.

Efrem: WE HOPE YOU'LL

JOIN US HERE AGAIN NEXT

TIME.

MAKE IT A FABULOUS FRIDAY.
