The 700 Club - May 14, 2015

Justin and Trisha’s marriage slowly deteriorated over ten years as kids and ministry took priority. Plus, Donna suffered almost 24 hours per day from debilitating headaches until a stranger on television prayed for her. Read Transcript


Wendy: WHAT HAS

HAPPENED TO OUR

CONSTITUTION?

SENATOR MIKE LEE HAS THE WAY

WE WERE REDISCOVER OUR

LIBERTY.

AND THEN...

I SAID, I'M DONE.

I DON'T WANT TO BE MARRIED

ANYMORE.

I'M HAVING AN AFFAIR AND I

WANT OUT.

Wendy: PLUS, CRIPPLED

WITH PAIN, AND THE MEDS

DIDN'T HELP.

AND IT WAS EVERY DAY.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

FINALLY BROUGHT RELIEF.

I DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH

THIS THE REST OF MY LIFE.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT WAS A TRAIN OF TERROR.

THUNDERING INTO A CURVE AT

106 MILES AN HOUR, DOUBLE

THE SPEED LIMIT, JUST BEFORE

IT FLEW OFF THE RAILS.

SEVERAL PEOPLE WERE KILLED.

MORE THAN 200 INJURED.

Terry: INVESTIGATORS

ARE LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE

DEADLY CRASH AND THE MAN

BEHIND THE CONTROLS OF THE

AMTRAK TRAIN.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Caitlin: THE

INVESTIGATION INTO THE CAUSE

OF THE AMTRAK CRASH

CONTINUES TODAY.

EVEN AS MUCH AS THE DEBRIS

OF THE ACCIDENT HAS BEEN

CLEARED AWAY.

NTSB OFFICIALS RECOVERED THE

TRAIN'S EVENT REPORTER,

PRELIMINARY INFORMATION,

SHOWING IT WAS GOING MUCH

TOO FAST BEFORE IT

DERAILED.

THE SPEED LIMIT ON THAT

CURVE IS JUST 50 MILES PER

HOUR.

THE TRAIN STARTED AROUND IT

AT 106 MILES AN HOUR.

THE ENGINEER TRIED TO SLOW

THE TRAIN, SLAMMING ON THE

EMERGENCY BRAKE, BYTE I BUT

IT WAS TOO LITTLE TOO LATE.

IN THE NEXT THREE OR FOUR

SECONDS, THE SPEED COULD

ONLY DECREASE TO 102.

Caitlin: WHY EXACTLY

THE TRAIN WAS GOING SO FAST

WILL BE THE BIGGEST QUESTION

FACING INVESTIGATORS.

THE MAN BEHIND THE CONTROLS

OF THE AMTRAK IS 32-YEAR-OLD

BRANDON BOSTIAN.

HE HAS NO REK RECOLLECTION

OF THE CRASH OR ANYTHING

UNUSUAL HAPPENING, BUT HE

HAS COOPERATED WITH THE

POLICE.

TODAY AT LEAST SEVEN PEOPLE

ARE CONFIRMED DEAD, AND SOME

ARE STILL MISSING.

HIS LIFE MAY HAVE BEEN

SNUFFED OUT, AND MY

GRANDCHILDREN ARE

BROKENHEARTED, AND I'M CRIED

OUT.

Reporter: POLICE ARE

WIDENING THE SEARCH AREA

AROUND THE CRASH SITE IN

HOPES OF FINDING MISSING

PASSENGERS WHO MAY HAVE BEEN

THROWN FROM THE TRAIN.

THE AMTRAK CRASH QUICKLY

BECOME A POLITICAL ISSUE IN

WASHINGTON, WHERE THE HOUSEú

PROPPIRATION'S COMMITTEE

MOVED FORWARD.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU HAVE TO ASK

THE VATICAN, WHAT ARE YOU

THINKING?

THERE IS A CORRUPT

ORGANIZATION, AND NOBODY

KNOWS WHO IS IN CHARGE, AND

YET IT IS CONTROLLED IN MANY

PARTS IN GAZA BY HAMAS, A

TERRORISM ORGANIZATION, AND

YET THE VATICAN HAS

OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED WHAT

THEY CALL THE STATE OF

PALESTINE, OVER THE

OPPOSITION OF ISRAEL AND THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT STORY

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Efrem: PAT, THE VATICAN

MADE THE OFFICIAL

RECOGNITION OF THE STATE OF

PALESTINE IN A NEW TREATY.

THAT TREATY COVERS

ACTIVITIES OF THE ROMAN

CATHOLIC CHURCH IN

PALESTINIAN AREAS.

PALESTINIAN LEADERS SAY IT

GIVES THEM A BIG LEGAL

VICTORY OVER ISRAEL IN THEIR

REQUEST TO CREATE A

PALESTINIAN STATE.

SO THIS DESIGNATES

PALESTINE AS A STATE HAVING

BORDERS, 67 BORDERS, AND

HAVING A CAPITAL, JERUSALEM,

IN ACCORDANCE WITH

INTERNATIONAL LAW.

Efrem: BOTH THE U.S.

AND ISRAEL OPPOSE THE

VATICAN'S MOVE.

THEY SAY IT UNDER MINES THE

ATTEMPT TO NEGOTIATE A DEAL

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS ON THE TERMS OF

A PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD.

WE'LL HAVE MORE ON THIS

STORY ON TOMORROW'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: MUD

MUDDLED-HEADEDNESS.

PEOPLE WHO DON'T GET THEIR

FACTS STRAIGHT.

AND THEY'RE LED KIND OF BY A

LEFT-WING IDEOLOGY.

I DIDN'T THINK THAT WAS THE

CASE IN THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

THEY'VE BEEN VERY REASONABLE

ON SO MANY ISSUES.

BUT YOU HEARD THEM SAYING

WITH A CAPITAL IN

JERUSALEM.

DID YOU HEAR THAT?

THAT IS THE ETERNAL CAPITAL

OF ISRAEL WON BY KING

DAVID.

KING DAVID WAS NOT

A, QUOTE,"PALESTINIAN."

EFREM?

Efrem: HERE AT HOME,

HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER

CALLED A NEW

MEASURE, QUOTE,"THE MOST

PRO-LIFE LEGISLATION EVER TO

COME BEFORE THIS BODY."

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT A BAN

ON ABORTIONS AFTER THE FIFTH

MONTH OF PREGNANCY, JUST

MINUTES BEFORE THE HOUSE

APPROVED THAT BAN.

PAUL STRAND BRINGS US THAT

STORY FROM CAPITOL HILL.

Reporter: A BAN ON

ABORTING UNBORN BEANS OLDER

THAN 20 WEEKS, OLD ENOUGH TO

FEEL PAIN, HAS PASSED ITS

FIRST HURTLE.

THE U.S. HOUSE HAS PASSED

THE PAIN CAPABLE UNBORN

CHILD PROTECTION ACT.

WITH ALMOST EVERY DEMOCRAT

VOTING NAY.

DEMOCRATS SAYING THEY HAD TO

PROTECT AMERICA'S WOMEN AND

THEIR RIGHT TO MAKE THEIR

OWN MEDICAL CHOICES, AND

REPUBLICANS SAYING THEY HAD

TO PROTECT THE MOST

UNPROTECTED OF CLASSES,

AMERICA'S UNBORN CHILDREN.

WE HAVE GIVEN THESE

LITTLE BABIES LESS LEGAL

PROTECTION FROM UNNECESSARY

CRUELTY THAN THE PROTECTION

WE HAVE GIVEN FARM ANIMALS

UNDER THE FEDERAL HUMANE

SLAUGHTER ACT.

NOW, I REMEMBER THE DAYS

OF BACK-ALLEY ABORTIONS.

MANY WOMEN DIED AND MORE

WERE PERMANENTLY INJURED

BEFORE ROE VS. WADE.

WITH THIS EGREGIOUS BILL,

REPUBLICANS HAVE ONCE AGAIN

DECIDED TO TAKE US BACK

THERE.

Reporter: A DEMOCRAT

WHO IS A DOCTOR SAYS

PHYSICIANS AND THEIR

PREGNANT PATIENTS SHOULD

DECIDE WHAT IS BEL.

THA BEST.

THAT IS SACRED TO THE

OATH I TOOK BEFORE I BECAME

A DOCTOR.

THIS BILL WILL MAKE IT

CRIMINAL FOR ME TO DO MY JOB

AS A DOCTOR.

I PRACTICED O.B.

ANESTHESIA, AND I WAS AWE

AMAZED THAT WE WOULD DELIVER

THE BABIES AND THEN ABORT

THEM.

60% OF AMERICANS,

REPUBLICANS, INDEPENDENTS,

SUPPORT THE PAIN CAPABLE

ACT.

WE HAVE A MORAL

OBLIGATION IN THIS COUNTRY

TO PROTECT LIFE, LIBERTY,

AND THE PURSUIT OF

HAPPINESS.

IT IS TIME THAT WE DO OUR

JOB.

Reporter: BUT HOUSE

PASSAGE WAS THE EASIEST

HURTLE FOR THIS ABORTION BAN

BECOMING LAW.

IT NOW FACES AN UNCERTAIN

FUTURE IN THE SENATE AND AN

ALMOST CERTAIN PRESIDENTIAL

VETO.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

CAPITOL HILL.

Efrem: PAT, THIS IS ONE

TO CONTINUE TO WATCH.

Pat: IT IS AMAZING,

THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE

LINING UP A CULTURE OF

DEATH, AND REPUBLICANS ARE

LINING UP AS A CULTURE OF

LIFE.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING OVER

ON THE DEEP SIDE ON SO MANY

ISSUES, NOT JUST IN RELATION

TO THIS, BUT MANY OTHER

ISSUES THAT ARE SO APPALLING

TO MOST OF THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE SOLIDLY

FOR IT.

AND IT IS JUST AMAZING HOW

THESE VOTES ARE COMING

DOWN.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE

NUMBER IS PROBABLY CLOSE TO

55 MILLION WE HAVE

SLAUGHTERED, UNBORN BABIES.

WHAT WOULD THEY HAVE BROUGHT

US IN CREATIVITY AND MEANT

TO THIS COUNTRY.

THEY WOULD HAVE MEANT SO

MUCH TO US, AND YET THEIR

LIVES ARE GONE.

AND WHEN ARE WE GOING TO

RECOGNIZE THAT GOD LOVES

PEOPLE.

HE SAYS IN JEREMIAH,

"BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN THE

WOMB, I KNEW YOU, AND I

APPOINTED YOU A PROPHET TO

THE NATIONS."

HE SAID, "BEFORE I FORMED

YOU IN THE WOMB, I KNEW

YOU."

AND WE'RE GOING TO TAKE

SOMETHING THAT GOD HAS

FORMED AND WE'RE GOING TO

ALLOW PEOPLE TO KILL IT.

AND THEN WE TALK ABOUT

BACK-ALLEY ABORTIONS AND ALL

OF THAT.

THIS IS NONSENSE.

WE'RE TALKING ONLY ABOUT

FETAL VIABILITY, NOT SOME

BACK-ALLEY ABORTION.

EFREM?

Efrem: THE HOUSE ALSO

VOTED TO END THE U.S.

INTELLIGENCE AGENCY'S BULK

COLLECTION OF AMERICA'S

PHONE RECORDS.

THE BILL WOULD REPLACE BULK

COLLECTION WITH A SYSTEM TO

SEARCH THE DATA HELD BY

TELEPHONE COMPANIES ON A

CASE-BY-CASE BASIS.

NOW THE SENATE WILL CONSIDER

PASSING THE MEASURE AS

WELL.

SOME SENATORS WANT TO

CONTINUE THE PROGRAM, EVEN

THOUGH THE HOUSE IS

OPPOSED.

THE SENATORS SAY IT IS A

NECESSARY MEASURE FOR

SECURITY AGAINST POSSIBLE

TERRORIST ATTACKS.

> PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

KICKING OFF THIS SUMMIT WITH

ARAB LEADERS, EVEN THOUGH

ONLY TWO HEADS OF STATE

ACCEPTED HIS INVITATION.

OTHERS, INCLUDING THE KING

OF SAUDI ARABIA, ARE

SKIPPING THE MEETING.

HE ANNOUNCED ON SUNDAY HE

WASN'T COMING, JUST TWO DAYS

AFTER THE WHITE HOUSE SAID

HE WAS.

ARAB STATES ARE SKEPTICAL OF

THE PRESIDENT'S DEAL WITH

IRAN ABOUT A NUCLEAR DEAL.

SAUDI ARABIA AND OTHER

SMALLER STATES ARE NOW

PROMISING TO MATCH WHATEVER

NUCLEAR ENRICHMENT

CAPABILITY IRAN IS ALLOWED

TO KEEP UNDER THE

PRESIDENT'S DEAL.

PAT?

Pam:

Pat: THAT'S EXACTLY

WHAT PEOPLE SAID: THIS WILL

KICK OFF A NUCLEAR ARMS RACE

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

IT WAS A MUDDLE-HEADED

AGREEMENT, WHERE THE

PRESIDENT IS CAVING ON

EVERYTHING THE IRANIANS

WANTED, AND THE IRANIANS ARE

LAUGHING AT HIM FOR BEING SO

FLEXIBLE, FOR BEING SO

SPINELESS IN THESE

NEGOTIATIONS.

THE SANCTIONS GO DOWN, AND

THEY GET BILLIONS AND

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN

TRADE.

HE'LL BE ABLE TO MANIPULATE

THE OIL BUSINESS.

IT IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE WHAT

THIS IS DOING.

AND THE SAUDIS SAID, YOU

KNOW, WE'VE GOT PLENTY OF

MONEY, AND WE'RE GOING TO

START BUILDING NUCLEAR

FACILITIES.

WHO WANTS THOSE GULF STATES

PITCHING NUKES BACK AND

FORTH AGAINST EACH OTHER.

IT IS GASSY TO FACILITATE

IT.

WHEN THEY SAY, NO WAY, WE'RE

NOT GOING TO LEND SUPPORT TO

THE STUFF YOU'RE DOING --

THE ARABS KNOW BETTER.

IT IS TIME FOR AMERICA TO

PUT TOGETHER A COALITION OF

THE WILLING AND STAND UP

AGAINST IRAN, WHICH IS

OBVIOUSLY THE BIGGEST

SPONSOR OF TERROR ON THE

GLOBE.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, HEAR

WHY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

NOW WIELDS ALMOST UNLIMITED

POWER OVER AMERICANS.

AND WHAT WE MUST DO TO STOP

IT.

SENATOR MIKE LEE TALKS ABOUT

OUR LOST CONSTITUTION, AFTER

THIS.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE VERY HAPPY TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

WE'VE GOT A TREMENDOUS GUEST

WITH US RIGHT NOW.

EVERY OFFICE HOLDER TAKES AN

OATH.

IT'S IN THE CONSTITUTION.

AND THAT IS TO SUPPORT AND

DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION.

IT IS NOT TO SUPPORT THE

FLAG.

NOT TO SUPPORT THE UNITED

STATES.

NOT TO SUPPORT THE

CONGRESS.

BUT TO DEFEND AND PROTECT

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE

UNITED STATES.

BUT ONE SENATOR HAS A

WARNING FOR AMERICA, OVER

THE YEARS, SOME OF THE KEY

PARTS OF OUR FOUNDING

DOCUMENT HAVE BEEN LOST.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

Reporter: FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE TO CAPITOL HILL,

WASHINGTON IS BESET WITH

POLITICAL PROBLEMS AND

DEBATES.

FROM OBAMACARE TO THE

NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY TO

THE HEAVY BURDEN OF FEDERAL

REGULATIONS.

UTAH SENATOR MIKE LEE

BELIEVES THAT NEARLY EVERY

ABUSE OF FEDERAL POWER TODAY

IS ROOTED IN ONE OVERARCHING

ISSUE: THE FAILURE TO

PROPERLY INTERPRET AND

FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION.

IN HIS NEW BOOK, "OUR LOST

CONSTITUTION, THE WILLFUL

SUBVERSION OF AMERICA'S

FOUNDING DOCUMENT," LEE SAYS

ENTIRE SECTIONING OF THE

CONSTITUTION HAVE BEEN

FORGOTTEN.

AND HE SHOWS WHY IT IS NOT

TOO LATE TO RESURRECT OUR

FUNDAMENTAL LIBERTIES.

Pat: I WROTE A BOOK

CALLED "COURTING DISASTER,"

AND I CITED SOME 170 SUPREME

COURT DECISIONS.

I'VE READ THIS BOOK BY

SENATOR MIKE LEE, "THE LOST

CONSTITUTION," AND IT IS A

WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN MY

BOOK.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST

BOOKS ON THE CONSTITUTION I

EVER SAW.

YOU REALLY OUGHT TO GET A

COPY OF IT AND READ IT.

SENATOR MIKE LEE IS JOINING

US FROM WASHINGTON, AND

WELCOME TO THIS PROGRAM.

THANK YOU, PAT.

Pat: YOU WERE A CLERK

TO A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE,

A TERRIFIC GUY, SAM ALITO,

AND YOUR FATHER WAS

SOLICITOR GENERAL OF THE

UNITED STATES.

SO YOU HAVE A LONG HISTORY

OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW,

RIGHT?

INDEED.

IN FACT, IT IS SOMETHING WE

TALKED ABOUT AROUND THE

DINNER TABLE.

AS I EXPLAIN IN MY BOOK, I

THINK I WAS ABOUT 30 WHEN I

REALIZED NOT EVERY FAMILY

TALKS ABOUT CONSTITUTIONAL

PRINCIPLES OVER POTATOES.

BUT IT IS ONE OF THE REASONS

IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME AND I

TEACH IT TO MY CHILDREN.

THAT'S WHY I WROTE THIS

BOOK.

I WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

TO UNDERSTAND THE STORIES

BEHIND THE CONSTITUTION.

TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THESE

SAME CONVERSATIONS I HAD AT

THE DINNER TABLE GROWING UP

AND THAT I HAVE WITH MY

CHILDREN TODAY.

Pat: YOU SPEND A LOT OF

TIME TALKING ABOUT THE ISSUE

THAT WAS GOING TO DERAIL THE

CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION,

THE SQUABBLE BETWEEN THE BIG

STATES AND THE LITTLE.

WOULD YOU AMPLIFY THAT A

LITTLE FOR US.

SURE.

THERE WAS A BIG DISPUTE IN

PHILADELPHIA, IN THAT HOT,

SWELTERING SUMMER OF 1787.

THE BIG STATES WANTED TO

MAKE SURE THEY WERE

REPRESENTED, ACCORDING TO

POPULATION.

THE SMALL STATES WANTED TO

MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE

STATES WERE REPRESENTED

EQUALLY.

THERE WAS A COMPROMISE THAT

WAS FORCED EVENTUALLY HOW WE

WOULD HAVE ONE HOUSE OF

CONGRESS, WHERE THE STATES

WOULD BE REPRESENTED EQUAL,

THE SENATE, AND THEY WOULD

BE REPRESENTED ACCORDING TO

POPULATION, THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

EVEN THEN, PAT, THEY

COULDN'T AGREE.

EVEN THEN THEY WERE

DEADLOCKED.

IT WASN'T UNTIL BEN

FRANKLIN, AFTER PLEADING

THROUGH PRAYER, FOR HELP

FROM THE ALMIGHTY, HE SAID

THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL TWIST

HERE.

WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT A

TAX INCREASE MUST INCREASE

IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

THAT'S WHAT SAVED IT AND

ALLOWED OUR CONSTITUTION TO

COME FORWARD.

I THINK IT WAS INTERVENTION

FROM ALMIGHTY GOD THAT MADE

THIS POSSIBLE.

Pat: WELL, THEY WEREN'T

LISTENING TO THE

CONSTITUTION WHEN THEY

PASSED OBAMACARE AND SOME OF

THE OTHER THINGS THAT ARE

BEING DONE RIGHT NOW, WHERE

THEY IGNORE THAT MOST

FUNDAMENTAL POINT OF OUR

CONSTITUTION.

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

I TELL THE STORY IN MY BOOK

HOW THIS PART OF THE

CONSTITUTION, WHICH WE CALL

THE ORIGINATION CLAUSE, WAS

BASICALLY IGNORED WHEN THE

PATIENT PROTECTION ACT, ALSO

KNOWN AS OBAMACARE, WAS

PASSED.

IT WAS A BILL THAT WAS

INTRODUCED IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES THAT HAD

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO

WITH HEALTH CARE.

IT HAD TO DO WITH BENEFITS

FOR ARMED SERVICES MEMBERS.

IT WAS PASSED IN THE HOUSE.

AND THEN IT CAME OVER TO THE

SENATE.

AND THE DEMOCRATIC

LEADERSHIP IN THE SENATE

STRIPPED OUT ALL OF THE

LANGUAGE FROM THAT AND

REPLACED IT WITH WHAT BECAME

OBAMACARE.

AND IT HAD ALL KINDS OF NEW

TAX PROVISIONS IN IT, AND

THEREFORE SHOULD HAVE

ORIGINATED IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

IT DID NOT.

HAD WE FOLLOWED THE

ORIGINATION CLAUSE HERE,

THEY MAY NEVER HAVE BEEN A

LAW WE CALL OBAMACARE.

THIS LAW THAT HAS MADE

HEALTH CARE MORE EXPENSIVE,

LESS ACCESSIBLE, AND NEVER

ENJOYED THE APPROVAL OF THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

IF WE JUST FOLLOWED THE

CONSTITUTION IN CONGRESS, WE

MIGHT HAVE BEEN PROTECTED

FROM THIS.

Pat: AND ANOTHER THING

IS THE SENATE, WHICH IS

ALMOST LIKE A FUNGUS.

EVERY DAY YOU TURN AROUND,

THESE EXECUTIVE AGENCIES

HAVE REALLY TAKEN OVER THE

GOVERNMENT, AND THEY HAVE

TAKEN OVER THE ROLE OF

CONGRESS.

CONGRESS IS DELEGATED.

THAT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL AS

WELL.

WOULD YOU DISCUSS THAT?

ABSOLUTELY.

AS I COMPLAI EXPLAIN IN MY

BOOK, "OUR LOST

CONSTITUTION," I HAVE TWO

STACKS IN MY OFFICE.

ONE STACK IS 11 FEET TALL

AND IT CONTAINS 80,000

PAGES, AND THESE ARE LEGALLY

BINDING DOCUMENTS, JUST LIKE

LAWS.

THE OTHER STACK OF

DOCUMENTS, NEXT TO THAT ONE,

IS ONLY A FEW INCHES TALL, A

FEW HUNDRED PAGES LONG.

THOSE ARE LAWS PASSED BY

CONGRESS LAST YEAR.

SO WE SEE, PAT, MOST OF OUR

LAWS THESE DAYS ARE MADE BY

MEN AND WOMEN, WHILE

WELL-AEROEWELL-EDUCATED,

AND HARD-WORKING, ARE NOT

ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE.

THIS IS A PROBLEM.

THE FIRST CLAUSE AND FIRST

ARTICLE OF THE CONSTITUTION

SAYS, ALL LEGISLATIVE POWERS

HERE GRANTED SHALL CONSIST

OF A CENTS AND A HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

THE FOUNDING FATHERS WANTED

TO MAKE SURE THAT BEFORE WE

PUT BINDING LAWS IN PLACE

THAT WOULD BIND THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, THOSE LAWS WOULD

HAVE TO BE MADE BY MEN AND

WOMEN OF THE PEOPLE'S OWN

CHOOSING.

WE'VE BEEN IGNORING THAT,

AND CONGRESS HAS BEEN

DELEGATING THAT AUTHORITY TO

MAKE IT EASIER FOR MEMBERS

OF CONGRESS.

Pat: EXACTLY.

THEY CAN SAY THAT WAS DONE

BY THE F.C.C., OR THAT WAS

DONE BY THE I.R.S., AND SO

FORTH.

THAT'S NOT OUR DOING.

A GOOD PRESIDENT COULD

LITERALLY, BY EXECUTIVE

DECREE, NULLIFY ALL OF THOSE

REGULATIONS PUT IN MY

EXECUTIVE AGENCIES.

HE WOULDN'T NEED

CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL TO DO

THAT?

HE COULD JUST DO IT, RIGHT?

IN MANY INSTANCES HE

COULD.

YOU'RE BASICALLY RIGHT IN

THAT A PRESIDENT WHO REALLY

WANTED TO DEFEND THE

CONSTITUTION COULD AT LEAST

SIGNIFICANTLY SLOW DOWN THIS

PROGRESSION AND TURN BACK

THE TIDE TOWARDS THE

CONSTITUTION AND TOWARD

ACCOUNTABILITY IN CONGRESS.

MY BOOK EXPLAINS HOW WE CAN

MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

MY BOOK EXPLAINS HOW THE

VOTER CAN BECOME FAMILIAR

ENOUGH WITH THESE ISSUES TO

INFLUENCE THE OUTCOME OF

ELECTIONS SO WE CAN RESTORE

OUR LOST CONSTITUTION.

Pat: ONE LAST THING,

THERE IS THIS THING THAT HAS

BEEN IN MA IN MY CRAWL.

THEY PICKED UP A PHRASE FROM

THOMAS JEFFERSON, WHO WAS

NOT PART OF THE

CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION AT

ALL.

HE WAS IN FRANCE.

YOU POINTED IT OUT IN YOUR

BOOK -- TALK ABOUT THE

RACIST K.K.K. MEMBER WHO GOT

ON THE SUPREME COURT AND HE

WROTE THAT DECISION.

AMPLIFY THAT, PLEASE.

WE HAD A MEMBER OF THE

UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT,

HAVING BEEN A CL KU KLUX

KLANSMAN EARLIER IN HIS

LIFE, WAS STRONGLY

ANTI-CATHOLIC, HE WAS A

BIGOT, AND HE WANTED TO DO

EVERYTHING HE COULD TO

WEAKEN WHAT HE PERCEIVED AS

A GRASP OF THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, AND HE SEIZED AN

OPPORTUNITY IN THIS EVERSON

CASE THAT YOU REFER TO, THAT

I DISCUSS IN MY BOOK, AND HE

WROTE INTO A SUPREME COURT

OPINION LANGUAGE THAT ISN'T

COMPELLED BY THE

ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE AND

ISN'T CONSISTENT WITH THE

ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE.

THE ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE, AS

I EXPLAIN IN MY BOOK, WAS

INTENDED TO MAKE SURE THAT

CONGRESS DIDN'T ESTABLISH A

NATIONAL CHURCH.

IT CERTAINLY WAS NOT

INTENDED TO PUT UNELECTED

JUDGES IN THE ROLE OF

DECIDING WHEN AND WHETHER

AND TO WHAT EXTENT A PRAYER

COULD BE UTTERED IN A PUBLIC

SQUARE.

WHEN, WHETHER, OR TO WHAT

EXTENT A STATE COULD PROVIDE

TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE TO

KIDS GETTING TO SCHOOL

BECAUSE THAT SCHOOL HAPPENED

TO HAVE A RELIGIOUS

AFFILIATION.

THIS IS ONE OF MANY EXAMPLES

OF HOW OUR CONSTITUTION HAS

BEEN DISTORTED, HOW IT HAS

BEEN LOST.

FORTUNATELY, THE GOOD NEWS

IS, THE NEWS I EXPLAIN AT

THE END OF THE BOOK IS THAT

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL

ALWAYS BE IN CONTROL OF THE

CONSTITUTION.

THEY CAN CONTROL ITS

DESTINY, AND THEY CAN

RESTORE IT.

AND MY BOOK EXPLAINS HOW.

Pat: IT IS A GREAT

BOOK.

AND THAT PART ABOUT THIS

WALL OF SEPARATION HAS LED

TO SUCH AN ANOMALY.

IT IS CRAZY WHAT HAS BEEN

DONE UNDER SOMETHING THAT

WAS NEVER DEBATED OR PART OF

THE CONSTITUTION, A LETTER

THAT THOMAS JEFFERSON WROTE

TO THE DANBURY BAPTISTS,

THAT NO FORCE OF LAW, AND

ONE JUDGE, A K.K.K.

MEMBER -- LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, YOU NEED TO READ

THIS BOOK.

MIKE, YOU'RE A GREAT SERVANT

OF AMERICA.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR SERVICE.

PLEASE KEEP IT UP AND MOVE

HIGHER IF YOU WILL.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH,

PAT.

IT IS GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.

Pat: "OUR LOST

CONSTITUTION," IT IS A

TERRIFIC READ.

I WROTE ONE, AND THIS IS A

LOT BETTER THAN WHAT I

WROTE.

Terry: A GOOD READ.

> COMING UP, A PASTOR

MAKES A SHOCKING CONFESSION

TO HIS WIFE.

I'M DONE WITH YOU.

I DON'T WANT TO BE MARRIED

ANYMORE.

I'M HAVING AN AFFAIR, AND I

WANT OUT.

WITH THOSE WORDS, I LOST

EVERYTHING.

Terry: WATCH HOW SHE

GAINS EVERYTHING BACK, EVEN

BETTER THAN BEFORE.

Terry: IT WAS A SUNDAY

AFTERNOON WHEN TRISHA'S

HUSBAND LOWERED THE BOOM.

JUSTIN WAS DONE WITH THEIR

MARRIAGE AND MOVING ON WITH

ANOTHER WOMAN.

THEIR AFFAIR HAD BEGUN AT

CHURCH, WHERE JUSTIN WAS THE

PASTOR.

I HAD GROWN TO SUCH A

DARK PLACE, I ALMOST DIDN'T

WANT TO GO BACK TO BEING A

MOM.

OUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP

REALLY BEGAN TO FADE AT A

FURIOUS PACE.

TRISH AND I MET IN 1993 IN

CHRISTIAN COLLEGE.

WE WERE QUITE THE

OPPOSITE, I GREW UP IN THE

CITY, AND JUSTIN GREW UP IN

A FARM COMMUNITY.

WE GOT ENGAGED IN JULY OF

1994.

AND WE GET MARRIED, AND

FOUR MONTHS LATER WE FIND

OUT I DON'T HAVE THE FLU,

BUT I AM EXPECTING OUR FIRST

SON, MICAH.

WE HAD OUR CHALLENGES, WE

HAD CONFLICT, BUT WE REALLY

FELT LIKE GOD HAD BROUGHT US

TOGETHER.

TRISH AND I STARTED IN

MINISTRY TOGETHER.

OUR GIFTS COMPLEMENT EACH

OTHER SO WELL.

I THINK WE PRIORITIZED

MINISTRY AS MUCH AS WE DID

OUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP,

AS MUCH AS WE DID EVEN OUR

OWN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

AND SO WHEN YOU DO THAT,

YOU'RE NOT -- YOU'RE MOTIVES

AREN'T BAD.

I THINK IT IS JUST A SUBTLE

SHIFT THAT HAPPENS OVER THE

COURSE OF TIME.

AND SO FOR THAT FIRST 10

YEARS WE DRIFTED TO THIS

PLACE WHERE WE WERE REALLY

GOOD MINISTRY PARTNERS BUT

NOT VERY GOOD MARRIAGE

PARTNERS.

IN 2002, THAT'S WHEN GOD

LED US TO PLANT A CHURCH.

THAT WAS, LIKE, THE MEGA

DREAM.

IF WE GOT TO PLAN THIS

CHURCH AND IT WAS

SUCCESSFUL, WE FELT IT WOULD

HEAL OTHER PARTS OF OUR

MARRIAGE.

WE THOUGHT WE HAD A

COMMON VISION TO KIND OF

RALLY AROUND TOGETHER.

AND WE WERE BOTH ON THE SAME

PAGE.

AND PEOPLE STARTED COMING

AND FINDING CHRIST, AND GOD

WAS SHOWING UP IN A VERY

POWERFUL WAY.

WE'RE LIVING THE DREAM.

THROUGH THAT, ALL OF THE

ISSUES THAT JUSTIN AND I HAD

STARTED TO CREEP ITS WAY

UP.

MY NEED FOR TRISH AS A

PART OF THAT VISION BECAME

LESS AND LESS.

I CONVINCED MYSELF I

COULD BE A LITTLE BITTER

TOWARDS JUSTIN, NOT

RECOGNIZING THAT BITTERNESS

WILL ALWAYS LEND ITSELF TO

RESENTMENT.

THAT NEXT YEAR, I BECAME A

REALLY RESENTFUL PERSON.

I COULD TELL THAT TRISH

AND I WERE JUST NOT ON THE

SAME PAGE.

MINISTRY AND MARRIAGE WAS A

REAL STRUGGLE.

SO IN JULY OF 2005 WE WENT

ON A CRUISE FOR OUR 10-YEAR

ANNIVERSARY.

HE JUST SEEMED TO BE

CLOSING HIMSELF OFF IN

GENERAL.

MY RESPONSE WAS, LIKE,

WHATEVER.

A FEW MONTHS AFTER WE GOT

BACK FROM THE CRUISE, I

APPROACHED ONE OF OUR STAFF

MEMBERS, AND I HAD FEELINGS

FOR HER.

THAT CONVERSATION OPENED THE

DOOR TO REALLY WHAT BECAME

AN INAPPROPRIATE VERBAL

RELATIONSHIP THAT THEN LED

TO A BRIEF PHYSICAL

RELATIONSHIP.

I WAS AT THE POINT WHERE I

WAS GOING TO LEAVE MY WIFE

AND KIDS FOR THIS

RELATIONSHIP.

THAT'S HOW FAST AND FURIOUS

IT HAD DETERIORATED.

SO I CAME HOME FROM CHURCH

ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON IN

OCTOBER AND I SAID, I'M

DONE.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, YOU'RE

DONE WITH WHAT?

AND I SAID, I'M DONE WITH

YOU.

I DON'T WANT TO BE MARRIED

ANYMORE.

I'M HAVING AN AFFAIR, AND I

WANT OUT.

IT WASN'T A CONFESSION OF

REMORSE.

IT WASN'T A CONFESSION OF

REPENTANCE.

IT WAS SIMPLY A CONFESSION

OF RESIGNATION.

WITH THOSE WORDS, I LOST

EVERYTHING.

I PACKED UP EVERYTHING

JUSTIN OWNED.

AND I REMEMBERED FOLDING HIS

CLOTHES AND SMELLING THEM

AND PUTTING THEM IN THE

BOX.

IT WAS WORSE THAN DEATH

BECAUSE HE WASN'T DEAD.

HE WAS ALIVE AND WELL.

HE JUST DIDN'T WANT TO BE

WITH ME.

A FAMILY FRIEND OF OURS

WAS ALLOWING ME TO STAY AT

HIS PLACE.

AND EVERYTHING I OWNED WAS

STACKED UP AGAINST THE

WALL.

I REMEMBER FALLING TO THE

GROUND AND JUST WITH THIS

FEELING OF, OH, MY GOSH,

WHAT HAVE I DONE?

I HAD A DESIRE AT THAT POINT

TO REALLY FIGHT FOR MY

MARRIAGE AND FIGHT FOR MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

AFTER NOT TALKING TO HIM

FOR 10 DAYS, I SAID I'M

WILLING TO GO TO

COUNSELLING, BUT I WASN'T

PROMISING ANYTHING.

AND GOD REALLY BEGAN TO

KIND OF REVEAL SOME OF THE

HURT AND PAIN AND WOUNDS

THAT WE HAD INFLICTED ON

EACH OTHER.

BUT THERE WAS STILL SOME

HIDDENNESS AND SOME TRUTH

THAT I WASN'T WILLING TO

SHARE AT THAT POINT.

I JUST KNEW THERE WAS

MORE.

I HAD GIVEN HIM TWO MONTHS

OF COMING TO COUNSELLING.

AND THAT FRIDAY I WENT HOME

AND EVEN TOLD GOD, I'M JUST

DONE.

AND I JUST REALIZED, I'M

NOT EVEN TELLING THE TRUTH

TO MYSELF.

AND SO I CALLED A FRIEND OF

MINE, AND I WENT OVER TO HIS

HOUSE AND I CONFESSED THAT I

HAD HAD A PORNOGRAPHY

ADDICTION FOR 10 YEARS, AND

I HAD BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED.

I KNOW THAT HEALING DOESN'T

COME RIGHT NOW IN THIS MOM,

BUMOMENT, BUT I KNOW IT

STARTS IN THIS MOMENT.

AND HE SAID, I'M GOING TO

PRAY THAT GOD WILL GIVE YOU

AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THIS

WITH TRISH.

AND I THOUGHT, ARE YOU

CRAZY.

THESE WORDS KEPT ON

COMING TO MY HEART AND MIND,

ONE MORE TIME.

ONE MORE TIME.

SO I SAID, OKAY, GOD, ONE

MORE TIME.

I CAME TO PICK UP THE

BOYS FOR SCHOOL ON MONDAY,

AND TRISH INVITED ME INTO

THE HOUSE.

AND SHE SAID, IF YOU HAVE

ANY HOPE AT ALL OF RESTORING

OUR MARRIAGE, I WANT TO KNOW

EVERYTHING.

I STARTED CRYING, I SAID, AS

FAR AS THAT RELATIONSHIP IS,

I TOLD YOU EVERYTHING.

BUT I HAVE A LOT MORE TO

TELL YOU.

THIS IS ABOUT ME HAVING A

RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD.

JUSTIN FINALLY ALLOWED ME

TO KNOW ALL OF HIM.

AND I LOVE HIM AND I WANTED

HEALING FOR HIM.

AND I SAID, NOW WE CAN START

OVER BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT

HIDING ANYMORE.

I HAVE EXPERIENCED

GRACE.

AND I HAVE EXPERIENCED

FORGIVENESS IN A WAY I NEVER

HUMANLY THOUGHT WAS

POSSIBLE.

PEOPLE ASK ME, HOW DID

YOU FORGIVE?

I REALIZE I HAD A

FORGIVENESS ISSUE LONG

BEFORE THE AFFAIR.

I WAS HOLDING JUSTIN HOSTAGE

TO SO MANY OTHER THINGS.

THE AFFAIR WAS JUST THE

THING THAT SENT IT

OVERBOARD.

GOD DOESN'T ASK US TO

LOVE HIM OUT OF OBLIGATION.

HE ASKS US TO LOVE HIM OUT

OF RESPONSE TO THE GRACE HE

HAS GIVEN US.

I THINK THE SAME THING IS

TRUE IN OUR MARRIAGE.

YOU LOVE OUT OF THE OVERFLOW

AND THE GRACE AND THE LOVE

AND THE FORGIVENESS SHE HAS

EXTENDED TO ME IN A TIME I

DIDN'T DESERVE IT.

I FEEL LIKE IT IS A DEEPER

LOVE THAN WE HAVE EVER HAD

BEFORE.

Terry: GRACE IS HARD TO

UNDERSTAND.

IT IS THE UNMERITED,

UNDESERVED FAVOR OF GOD.

AND THE TRUTH IS FOR MOST OF

US, WE'RE NOT REALLY HONEST

ENOUGH WITH OURSELVES OR

WITH THE PEOPLE AROUND US TO

ADMIT THAT WE ARE

UNDESERVING.

THAT GOD'S GRACE IS

UNMERITED.

THAT WE ARE SINNERS.

THEY WE ARE FLAWED.

THAT WE FALL SHORT OF THE

MARK.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS

JUST PART OF A FEW OF US.

IT IS ALL OF US.

AND SO WE ALL NEED GOD'S

GRACE.

AND WE SING SONGS LIKE AM

"AMAZING GRACE" AND WE TALK

ABOUT THE WONDER OF IT ALL,

BUT DO WE UNDERSTAND HOW

MUCH WE ARE FLAWED?

HOW MUCH GOD LOVES US

BECAUSE OF WHO WE ARE OR

WHAT WE DO OR WHETHER WE

MEASURE UP.

HE LOVES US BECAUSE HE IS

LOVE AND GRACE.

IT DOESN'T JUST EXTEND IT.

IT IS WHO HE IS.

SO YOU CAN'T EARN IT.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS

SAID IN THAT STORY THAT I

THINK WAS SO SIGNIFICANT IS

THAT WHEN THEY GOT REAL,

WHEN THEY GOT HONEST, WHEN

THEY REALLY WERE FACE TO

FACE WITH EACH OTHER, SAYING

THIS IS WHO I AM, AND THIS

IS THE PROBLEM.

THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT

ARE INFECTED IN ME, THAT YOU

CAN BEGIN HEALING.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE THAT WITH

ANY WOUND, ISN'T IT?

AS LONG AS IT IS NOT CLEANED

OUT, INFECTION IS STILL ABLE

TO FIT IN.

AND YOU CAN PUT ALL OF THE

BAND-AIDS YOU WANT ON IT,

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO CLEAN IT

OUT FOR THE INFECTION TO GO

AWAY.

YOU'VE GOT TO CLEAN IT OUT

FOR HEALING TO START.

SO TODAY IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING IN A RELATIONSHIP

WITH YOUR SPOUSE, AND MAYBE

YOU'VE HUNG ON TO

BITTERNESS, LIKE TRISHA SAID

SHE DID, AND IT HAS TURNED

TO RESENTMENT, MAYBE YOU

HAVE BECOME DISILLUSIONED IN

THE RELATIONSHIP, AND YOU'RE

READY TO GIVE UP AND WALK

AWAY FROM SOMEONE YOU SPENT

YEARS WITH, YOU CAN HAVE A

NEW BEGINNING.

YOU CAN HAVE A NEW

BEGINNING.

DON'T THROW AWAY WHAT GOD

HAS BROUGHT TOGETHER.

EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T COME TO

KNOW EACH OTHER WHEN YOU

KNEW THE LORD, THIS IS HIS

PROMISE TO YOU: IF ANY MAN

IS IN CHRIST, HE BECOMES A

BRAND NEW CREATION.

THE OLD PASSES AWAY AND

EVERYTHING BECOMES BRAND

NEW.

HOW DO YOU THINK THAT

HAPPENS?

BECAUSE OF GOD'S AMAZING

GRACE.

IT'S BECAUSE WE GET REAL

WITH HIM.

WE GET REAL WITH EACH

OTHER.

AND YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T BE

REAL WITH ANOTHER PERSON IN

A WAY THAT MATTERS UNTIL

YOU'VE REALLY GOTTEN REAL

WITH YOUR CREATOR.

AND YOU CAN TRUST HIM.

GET ON YOUR KNEES.

GET ON YOUR KNEES, LIKE

JUSTIN AND TRISHA DID, AND

SAY, GOD, THIS IS WHO I AM.

I'M BROKEN.

I'M IN NEED.

YOUR A SAVIOR AND A

REDEEMER.

PLEASE COME AND REDEEM ME.

I NEED YOU.

I NEED FORGIVENESS FOR MY

SIN.

I NEED A START-OVER, AND I

NEED A NEW BEGINNING.

AND I NEED THE POWER YOU

OFFER ME TO LIVE

DIFFERENTLY.

GOD LOVES YOU.

HE KNOWS YOUR NAME.

HE GETS IT.

HE UNDERSTANDS WHERE YOU'RE

AT.

THAT PROMISE ISN'T JUST FOR

PEOPLE WHO AREN'T TOO

BROKEN.

THAT PROMISE IS FOR ALL OF

US, NO MATTER HOW FAR WE'VE

GONE INTO THE FAR COUNTRY.

BUT START WITH HIM.

START WITH THE RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE LORD FIRST, AND

THEN BEGIN TO ADDRESS THE

RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE

PEOPLE AROUND YOU.

OFFERING THEM THE SAME

AMAZING GRACE THAT GOD HAS

OFFERED YOU AND ME.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PRAY

WITH SOMEBODY ABOUT A NEED

IN YOUR LIFE, THE

COUNSELLING CENTER IS OPEN.

WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU

CALL.

WE WOULD LOVE TO PRAY WITH

US.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO GIVE

US YOUR NAME IF YOU DON'T

WANT TO.

YOU CAN ASK CHRIST INTO YOUR

LIFE.

AND YOU CAN CALL THAT NUMBER

AND PRAY WITH ONE OF OUR

PRAYER COUNSELLORS AT WELL.

IF YOU HAVE A SCENARIO IN

YOUR MARRIAGE AND YOU WANT

TO KNOW WHAT DOES GOD HAVE

TO SAY ABOUT IT, WE HAVE A

LOVELY PAMPHLET CALLED "LOVE

AND MARRIAGE."

AND WE'D LOVE TO GIVE IT TO

YOU.

PRAY THAT PRAYER WE JUST

TALKED ABOUT AND THEN CALL

AND ASK FOR "A NEW DAY," AND

WE'LL SEND THIS OUT TO YOU

FREE AS WELL.

BUT START THAT JOURNEY

TODAY.

PAT?

Pat: THANK YOU, TERRY.

STILL AHEAD, WE HAVE YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

TINA SAYS, "HOW CAN I LEARN

WHAT MY GIFTS AND TALENTS

ARE.

I SERVE AS AN USHER IN MY

COURAGE, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO

DO MORE."

I'LL ANSWER THIS QUESTION

AND NORE WHE MORE WHEN WE

"BRING IT ON."

Efrem: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE SENATE CALLED ON

PRESIDENT OBAMA EARLIER THIS

WEEK TO SECURE THE RELEASE

OF AMERICAN PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI AND OTHER AMERICANS

HELD BY THE IRANIAN REGIME.

THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER

MITCH McCONNELL SAID SAEED

WAS IN PRISON SIMPLY FOR

TRYING TO START AN

ORPHANAGE, AND HE SPOKE OF

THE ABUSE THE PASTOR HAS

SUFFERED WHILE IN PRISON.

BEATEN, DENIED ACCESS TO

MEDICAL CARE, AND LOCKED

AWAY IN SOLITARY

CONFINEMENT, THAT'S HOW THE

IRANIAN REGIME DEALS WITH

THOSE WHO DARE TO SHOW LOVE

AND COMPASSION TO OTHERS.

Efrem: THE RESOLUTION

WAS SPONSORED BY IDAHO

SENATOR JAMES RISH, AND THAT

IS THE HOME STATE OF SAEED

AND HIS WIFE, NAGHMEH.

> ISRAELIS ARE WELL-KNOWN

FOR THE SUPPORT THEY SHOW

THEIR SOLDIERS, BUT ISRAEL'S

MILITARY IS NOW GETTING SOME

TRIBUTES FROM AN UNLIKELY

SOURCE.

ARAB YOUNG PEOPLE IN HOSTILE

COUNTRIES.

THE JERUSALEM POST REPORTS

AN ARAB-ISRAELI VETERAN SET

UP A PRO-ISRAEL Facebook

PAGE TO COUNTER AN ARAB

CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISRAEL

FORCES.

ONE SAUDI WOMAN WROTE SHE

WOULD LIKE TO SEND A MESSAGE

OF PEACE AND HOPE TO

ISRAEL.

AND ONE WROTE, "I SUPPORT

THE STATE OF ISRAEL AND

THEIR ARMY AND NATION, BUT

IN OUR COUNTRY WE ARE NOT

ALLOWED TO EXPRESS OUR

OPINIONS OR WE WILL BE

KILLED."

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "700 CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: WELL, TIME TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM TINA, WHO SAYS, HOW CAN

I LEARN WHAT MY GIFTS AND

TALENTS ARE?

I'M ONLY AT ABOUT A YEAR

INTO MY WALK.

JESUS CHRIST HAS CHANGED ME

SO MUCH.

I SERVE AS AN USHER AT MY

CHURCH BUT WOULD LOVE TO

SERVE MORE.

Pat: THE BIG THING, IS

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO?

WHEN YOU SEE A SICK PERSON,

DOES YOUR HEART GO OUT TO

THEM?

DO YOU WANT TO LAY HANDS ON

THEM OR HUG THEM OR BLESS

THEM?

WHEN YOU SEE A LITTLE CHILD,

DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT

CHILD AND BLESS THAT CHILD?

DO YOU HAVE A FEELING FOR

KIDS?

DO YOU ENJOY TEACHING OR DO

YOU ENJOY PROCLAIMING THE

GOSPEL TO PEOPLE, JUST IN

CONVERSATION?

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO?

THAT'S WHAT YOU'R YOUR

GIFTS ARE.

WHATEVER YOU FEEL NATURAL.

WHAT IS YOUR NATURAL

TALENT.

SOME BOYS HAVE A NATURAL

TALENT TO THROW A BALL.

I MEAN, THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

GOOD AT.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT THEY CAN

DO.

SOME LOOK BETTER FOR

STUDYING.

SOME ARE BETTER IN DEBATES.

SOME ARE BETTER IN SCIENCE

PROJECTS.

IT IS DOING WHAT YOU LIKE.

IT IS THE WAY GOD MADE YOU.

THAT'S WHAT YOUR GIFTS ARE.

HOW DO YOU DISCOVER THEM?

THAT'S THE WAY THEY ARE.

THEY'LL COME NATURALLY IF

YOU JUST ALLOW THEM.

DON'T BE LIMITED BY WHAT

SOME CHURCH LET'S YOU DO.

IF YOU HAVE A GIFT FROM THE

LORD, IT WILL BREAK OUT

REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE

CHURCH SAYS.

Terry: THIS IS JOHNNIE

WHO SAYS, "I FOUND OUT MY

HOHOME-SCHOOL CHILD HAS TO

GO AND TAKE A TEST, HOWEVER,

I DISAGREE WITH THE

CURRICULUM, AND I DON'T WANT

MY CHILD TO TAKE A TEST THAT

IS BASED ON THAT

CURRICULUM.

WHAT RIGHTS DO I HAVE?"

Pat: IT IS JUST A

TEST.

DOES HE HAVE TO TAKE A

COURSE?

Terry: I THINK IT IS

REALLY JUST TO ASSESS THE

LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE.

Pat: EXACTLY.

TO SEE WHAT THEY'VE

LEARNED.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS

ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

THE STATE HAS A RIGHT -- IF

YOU'RE TEACHING YOUR CHILD,

AND YOU SAY I CAN DO A

BETTER JOB THAN THE STATE

SCHOOLS, THEY SAY, OKAY,

PROVE IT.

WE'LL GIVE THE CHILD A TEST

ON MATH AND ON WORLD AFFAIRS

AND SEE WHAT HE KNOWS.

AND HE'LL PROBABLY DO BETTER

THAN MOST OF THE STUDENTS.

SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

Terry: THIS IS KAREN

WHO SAYS, "DID JOSEPH MARY

NOAH AND MOSES?

DID PEOPLE HAVE LAST NAMES

ARE THEY KNOWN BY THEIR

TRIBES?"

Pat: THEY ARE USUALLY

KNOWN BY THEIR FAMILIES.

NOAH, THE SON OF SAMUEL.

AND IT'S USUALLY THEIR

PARENT.

I'M THE SON OF WHATEVER.

AND I'M THE GRANDSON OF

WHATEVER.

THEY HAVE FIRST NAMES,

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

AND, OF COURSE, THEY WERE

PART OF A TRIBE.

THAT WOULD BE THE TRIBE OF

JUDAH, THE TRIBE OF BENCH

BENJAMIN AND SO FORTH.

MOSES HAS TO DO WITH

SOMEBODY WHO GOT DRAWN OUT

OF THE WATER.

THAT'S WHERE THE NAME COMES

FROM.

THEY GIVE THEM A NAME THAT

DESCRIBES THEM IN SOME

FASHION.

BUT HE WAS THE SON OF AMRAN

AND JAKABED.

Terry: THIS IS LEE WHO

SAYS, "I'M AN OLD MAN

NEARING THE END OF LIFE, AND

THERE IS ONE QUESTION I

WOULD BEG FOR AN ANSWER: WHY

IS THERE SO MUCH MORE EVIL

IN THE WORLD TODAY?

HAS GOD ABANDONED US TO

SUFFER IN THE CESSPOOL OF

OUR OWN MAKING?"

Pat: GOD HAS NEVER

ABANDONED THIS EARTH.

BUT HE DOES GIVE US

FREEDOM.

AND THE TIME IS GOING TO

COME THAT EVIL WILL GET MORE

AND MORE EVIL.

AND THERE WILL BE A POINT IN

TIME WHEN GOD SAYS, THAT'S

IT.

I'VE HAD ALL I CAN TAKE.

AND HE IS GOING TO MOVE WITH

WRATH AGAINST THE UNGODLY,

AND IT IS GOING TO BE

TERRIBLE.

HE WILL BRING A TIME OF

TRIBULATION AND JUDGMENT ON

THE EARTH, AND HUNDREDS AND

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WILL

DIE.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU

WANT TO LOOK FORWARD TO.

BUT GOD IS GOING TO SAY,

I'VE HAD ALL OF THIS I CAN

TAKE.

IT HAS GOTTEN SO BAD.

AND IT'S LIKE THOSE TRIBES,

WHEN ISRAEL CAME OUT OF

EGYPT, AND GOD HAS SAID

THEIR INIQUITY IS NOW FULL.

IT HAD 400 YEARS OF EVIL AND

IT HAS GOT TO BE STOPPED.

GOD WILL STOP IT.

BUT HE ISN'T STOPPING IT YET

BECAUSE HE IS PRESERVING THE

WORLD FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO

DO RIGHTEOUSNESS.

AND THERE IS A TREMENDOUS

AMOUNT OF WORK TO BE DONE.

AND BECAUSE OF THAT REMNANT,

GOD WANTS TO SEE PEOPLE

SAVED.

Terry: THIS IS A SAD

ONE, FROM SOMEONE NAMED

KENYA WHO SAYS, "I'M A

TERRIBLE PERSON.

I DON'T DESERVE ANYTHING

GOOD IN LIFE.

PEOPLE HATE ME AND I DON'T

BLAME THEM.

I FIND IT HARD TO LOVE

MYSELF.

I FEEL LIKE I'M A WASTE OF

SPACE.

I WANT TO GIVE UP.

ALL I DO IS HURT PEOPLE EVEN

WHEN I DON'T WANT TO.

I RUIN PEOPLE.

I DON'T WANT TO HURT

PEOPLE.

I WANT TO LOVE THEM.

I'M SAVED, BUT I OFTEN FEEL

LIKE NOTHING I DO IS GOOD.

PLEASE HELP ME."

Pat: DEAR LORD, YOU'VE

GOT A PROBLEM.

YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO YOUR

PARENTS AND SEE, WERE THEY

INVOLVED IN WITCHCRAFT?

YOU SOUND LIKE YOU'VE GOT A

CURSE ON YOU THAT IS MORE

THAN JUST NATURAL.

READ WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT

YOU.

GOD SAYS YOU'RE SPECIAL.

YOU'RE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF

GOD.

GOD SAYS, I LOVE YOU AND I

DIED FOR YOU.

AND YOU NEED TO READ THAT

AND READ IT OVER AND OVER

AND OVER AGAIN.

READ THE PSALMS.

READ PROVERBS.

READ ISAIAH.

READ THE GOSPEL OF JOHN.

READ IT AND LET IT BE PART

OF YOUR LIFE.

SOMEHOW YOU HAVE GOTTEN INTO

A MINDSET THAT IS AWFUL.

YOUR PARENTS EITHER TOLD YOU

YOU ARE WORTHLESS JUNK, YOU

WERE TOLD IT IN SCHOOL, OR

ELSE THERE IS A DEMONIC

FORCE THAT IS DRIVING YOU.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE ALL THIS

IS COMING FROM, BUT IT IS

NOT NATURAL FOR SOMEBODY TO

HAVE SUCH SELF-LOATHING AND

HATE.

JESUS SAYS YOU LOVE OTHERS

AND YOURSELF.

GOD SAYS YOU'RE SPECIAL.

YOU ARE SPECIAL.

YOU'RE CREATED IN THE IMAGE

OF GOD.

SAY IT OVER AND SO FAR

AGAIN.

OKAY.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR

QUESTIONS TODAY.

WE THANK YOU.

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

Pat: IN THE AFTERMATH

OF NEPAL'S EARTHQUAKES,

SEVERAL REMOTE MOUNTAIN

VILLAGES HAVE BEEN CUT OFF

FROM HELP.

BUT A RELIEF TEAM FROM CBN

FOUND A WAY TO REACH THIS

RAVAGED COMMUNITY.

Reporter: HEADING DEEP

INTO THE HILLS, FOUR HOURS

OUTSIDE KATHMANDU, UP SANDY

ROADS, WE CAME TO ONE

VILLAGE THAT WAS PRACTICALLY

LEVELLED.

THE POOREST VILLAGES ARE THE

ONES THAT HAVE BEEN THE

HARDEST HIT BY THIS

EARTHQUAKE.

THE REASON IS, PEOPLE HERE

CAN'T AFFORD BRICKS OR

CEMENT.

SO ALL OF THEIR HOMES ARE

MADE OUT OF ROUGH FIELD

STONE AND MUD.

I WAS GIVING MY DAUGHTER

A BATH WHEN THE EARTHQUAKE

CAME.

WE RAN AWAY, AND I WATCHED

OUR HOUSE CRUMBLE TO THE

GROUND.

Reporter: JIMIA'S

HUSBAND DIED A FEW YEARS

AGO.

NOW SHE AND HER DAUGHTER

LIVE WITH HER

MOTHER-IN-LAW.

OUR S.U.V. WAS TOO HEAVY TO

MAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO THEIR

VILLAGE.

SO WE HAD TO OFF-LOAD THE

RELEASE SUPPLIES AND GET

THEM IN ANOTHER WAY.

WE GAVE TARPS AND BLANKETS

TO EVERY ONE THERE.

IT IS SO NICE TO SEE

PEOPLE COMING HERE TO HELP

US.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WE COULD

DO WITHOUT OUR HOME.

Reporter: SOON

VILLAGERS HERE WILL START

REBUILDING THEIR HOMES AND

THEIR LIVES.

BUT REBUILDING TAKES TIME.

YOU KNOW, IT IS GETTING KIND

OF DARK, BUT IT IS INTO

NOWHERE NEAR DUSK.

I CAN HEAR THE THUNDER IN

THE DISTANCE, AND THAT MEANS

THE RAINY SEASON IS COMING.

WHEN THE RAINS COME, CBN

TEAMS WILL CONTINUE TO

PROVIDE FOOD, SHELTER, AND

MEDICAL CARE TO THE PEOPLE

OF NEPAL.

Pat: WE'RE THERE IN

YOUR NAME.

WE'RE THERE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AND IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

YOU KNOW, ALL AROUND THE

WORLD, PEOPLE ARE SO WILLING

TO ACCEPT AID.

THEY'RE SO HUNGRY FOR HELP.

THEY WANT SOMEBODY TO COME

IN AND LOVE THEM AND BRING

THEM THE LOVE OF GOD.

AND GOD SAYS WE CAN BE HIS

HAND EXTENDED.

I'M THRILLED THAT THE REPORT

IN FAR AWAY NEPAL, CALT

CATAMARAN MAN, AND

KATHMANDU, AND IN THE

HIMALAYAS.

I WAS ABLE TO READ SOME

PSALMS, TH "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD," AND WE

WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

THIS IS THE TIME TO HELP

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

THEY'RE CRYING OUT, PLEASE

COME OVER AND HELP US.

THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR

SCREEN: 1-800-759-0700.

IT'S A TAX DEDUCTIBLE

DONATION, IF THAT MEANS

ANYTHING TO YOU.

BUT 65 CENTS A DAY.

YOU KNOW, PEOPLE GO OUT TO

THAT STARBUCKS AND THEY PAY

$5 FOR A CUP OF COFFEE WITH

SOME CREAM IN IT.

$5 FOR A CUP OF COFFEE!

Terry: AND NOT ONLY IN

AMERICA ANYMORE.

YOU CAN FIND THEM EVERYWHERE

AROUND THE WORLD.

Pat: $20, THAT'S FOUR

CUPS OF COFFEE A MONTH, AND

THAT'S A "700 CLUB"

MEMBERSHIP, TO HELP PEOPLE

LIKE THOSE PEOPLE YOU SAW IN

NEPAL.

CALL IN.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, WE'RE

GOING TO BE PRAYING FOR YOU

AND FOR YOUR NEEDS.

BUT, FIRST, YOU'LL SEE HOW

ONE WOMAN WAS SUPER

NATURALLY HEALED OF CHRONIC

HEADACHES AND IT HAPPENED IN

AN INSTANT.

THAT'S AUSTE AFTER THIS.

Terry: HOW BAD WERE

DONNA MARTIN'S HEADACHES?

SO BAD SHE COULDN'T EAT OUR

SLEEP.

DONNA WAS IN CHRONIC PAIN

UNTIL ONE DAY WHEN SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I WORKED ALL OF THE TIME,

EVERY DAY, AND I NOTICED I

STARTED HEADACHES MIDDAY,

USUALLY.

AND THEY WERE UP UNTIL I

WENT HOME AND THROUGH THE

NIGHT.

IT WAS REAL SEVERE IN THE

BACK OF MY HEAD AND DOWN MY

NECK.

AND IT WAS EVERY DAY.

AND I WOULD JUST GO HOME AND

TAKE ASPIRIN OR SOMETHING TO

HELP RELIEVE THE PAIN.

WHENEVER I WOULD GET OFF

WORK AND THOSE HEADACHES

WERE THERE, I JUST REALLY

DIDN'T FEEL LIKE DOING

ANYTHING.

A LOT OF TIMES THE KIDS

WOULD WANT TO DO SOMETHING,

OR FOR ME TO GO SOMEWHERE,

BUT I JUST DIDN'T FEEL LIKE

IT.

AND THAT'S JUST NOT ME.

I DIDN'T GO TO THE DOCTOR

ABOUT IT.

I JUST PRAYED ABOUT IT

BECAUSE I KNEW THAT GOD

COULD TAKE CARE OF IT.

I WOULD COME HOME FROM

WORK.

USUALLY I WOULD SIT DOWN AND

WATCH TELEVISION UNTIL I GOT

READY TO GO TO BED.

AND CBN CAME ON.

AND GORDON WAS ON, GETTING

READY TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE AND

GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

Terry: THERE ARE PEOPLE

WITH CHRONIC HEADACHES BEING

RELEASED RIGHT NOW.

Gordon: AND PAIN DOWN

THE NECK, AS WELL AS INTO

THE SPINE, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT.

WHEN HE SAID THAT, MY

HANDS JUST WENT UP TO MY

HEAD, AND I TOUCHED MY HEAD

AND RAISED MY HANDS

INSTANTLY BECAUSE I KNEW I

WAS HEALED.

I DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH

THIS THE REST OF MY LIFE

BECAUSE GOD ALREADY TOOK

CARE OF IT.

HE SAID, BY HIS STRIPES --

NOT I AM HEALED, BUT BY HIS

STRIPES I WAS HEALED.

AND I HAVE NEVER HAD THAT

KIND OF A HEADACHE SINCE,

AND IT HAS BEEN OVER A

YEAR.

I PRAISE GOD AND THANK HIM

EVERY DAY FOR IT, AND I

STILL DO.

HEALING IS NOT AN OPTION.

IT IS HIS WILL TO HEAL.

HE IS SOVEREIGN.

Terry: LINDA FROM

VIRGINIA HAS BEEN SUFFERING

WITH PAINFUL KIDNEY STONES

FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS.

SHE FINALLY WENT TO A

SPECIALIST WHO USED

ULTRASOUND TO SHATTER TWO OF

THE STONES, BUT SOMETHING

WENT WRONG AND SHE WAS

BURNED INTERNALLY.

AND THE DOCTORS SAW A THIRD

STONE THAT NEEDED REMOVAL.

LAST MARCH, WHILE WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, PAT, YOU GAVE

THIS WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

"THERE IS A KIDNEY STONE,

OH, IT IS HURTING SO BADLY,

AND RIGHT NOW THAT KIDNEY

STONE IS DISSOLVING AND WILL

PASS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU

HAVE BEEN MADE WHOLE."

10 DAYS LATER AFTER HER

DOCTOR TWO X-RAYS, HE SAID,

I CAN'T FIND IT.

THE STONE WAS GONE.

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

LINDA.

GOD KNOWS LINDA.

GOD LOVES LINDA AND HE LOVES

YOU.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS AND PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

FATHER, WE JOIN TOGETHER.

THANK YOU, LORD, FOR THIS

WONDERFUL HEALING.

THANK YOU FOR THE HEALING OF

THAT LADY WITH THE

HEADACHES.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE

GOING TO DO IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

SOMEBODY HAS A BRAIN TUMOR.

IT HASN'T BEEN DIAGNOSED,

BUT YOU'VE BEEN HAVING

SPLITTING HEADACHES.

AND RIGHT NOW GOD IS LIKE A

FINGER, REACHING INTO THE

MIDDLE OF YOUR BRAIN.

AND THAT TUMOR IS LEAVING

YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE -- THIS IS A MOM

WHO IS WATCHING.

YOU HAVE A CHILD WHO HAS A

REAL LEARNING DISABILITY,

AND IT IS VERY, VERY LIFE

INTERRUPTING.

THAT'S BEING TURNED AROUND.

WATCH WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

YOUR CHILD IS GOING TO BE

MAINSTREAMED WITHOUT A

PROBLEM.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

FATHER, THOSE IN THIS

AUDIENCE WHO HAVE LOUNG

PROBLEMS -- THERE ARE A

NUMBER OF THEM RIGHT NOW WHO

HAVE RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS.

YOU HAVE INFECTIONS IN YOUR

LUNGS.

YOU'RE COUGHING UP THINGS

THAT ARE BAD, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU.

HE IS BURNING OUT THE

VIRUSES RIGHT NOW THAT HAVE

BEEN CAUSING YOUR LUNGS TO

BE INFECTED AND INFLAMED IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU'RE

GOING TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE

NORMALLY, AND YOU WILL BE

FREE OF ALL OF THIS RIGHT

NOW.

YOU CAN FEEL HEAT IN YOUR

CHEST.

GOD JUST TOUCHED YOU.

Terry: THERE IS A WOMAN

WITH AN OVARIAN PROBLEM.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT

RUNS IN YOUR FAMILY.

THIS IS JUST A CONDITION

YOU'VE COME INTO, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW, COMPLETELY.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD,

IN JESUS' NAME.

RAISE YOUR HANDS AND THANK

THE LORD.

REMEMBER HE LOVES YOU.

TAKE HIS LOVE.

TAKE HIS POWER.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PSALM 41:

"BLESSED IS HE WHO CONSIDERS

THE POOR.

THE LORD WILL DELIVER HIM IN

TIME OF TROUBLE.

THE LORD WILL PRESERVE HIM

AND KEEP HIM ALIVE, AND HE

WILL BE BLESSED ON THE

EARTH."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

WE'VE GOT THE STARS OF "19

KIDS AND COUNTING" TALK

ABOUT THEIR FAMOUS FAMILY

TOMORROW.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

FOR TERRY AND ALL OF US,

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
