The 700 Club - June 8, 2015

When David and Shannon became overwhelmed by the stress of failed fertility treatments, David sought comfort in prescription drugs. Also, Don and Joseph went hiking in a canyon and almost didn’t make it out alive. Read Transcript


THE CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE OF

OUR ERA.

THERE IS A BETTER WAY.

HOW ARE CHURCHES REACHING

OUT TO THE

GAY COMMUNITY.

ARE WE PRESENTING RIGHT AND

WRONG IN

A LOVING WAY.

PLUS IN THE CANYONS.

WE COULD NOT FIND A ROAD.

WITH NO WATER AND NO PHONE

SIGNAL.

THEIR ESCAPE. ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB".

Pat: WELCOME FOLKS TO THIS

EDITION OF

THE "700 CLUB". 37 YEARS IS A

LONG TIME

BUT IT'S THAT LONG SINCE WE'VE

HAD A

TRIPLE CROWN WINNER. AMERICAN

PHARAOH

DID IT. THIS TRAINER OF THE

YEAR IS

SIMPLY AMAZING. THAT ANIMAL. HE

JUST

SMOKED HIM. TO WIN BELMONT IS A

MILE

1/2.

IT WAS A GREAT RACE.

DID YOU WATCH?

YES. WE WATCHED, WE CHEERED.

IT WAS FUN.

Pat: BUT MORE IMPORTANT IN

THE NEWS,

YOU WOULD NEVER BELIEVE IT. YOU

HAVE

THE WITH A --WAHABIS IN SO

SAUDI

ARABIA MEETING BEHIND CLOSED

DOORS.

ISRAEL AND SAUDI ARABIA.

Terry: THE TWO COUNTRIES

TALKED ABOUT

THE UNDEADLY COOPERATION OF THE

NUCLEAR

WEAPONS IN IRAN.

THEY TALKED TO THE FOREIGN

MINISTRY

MET WITH AN WAR MAJD. WITH THE

SAME

MESSAGE. IRAN IS TRYING TO TAKE

OVER

THE MIDDLE EAST AND MUST BE

STOPPED.

THEY HAVE MET FIVE TIMES IN

THE LAST

YEAR 1/2 IN SECRET. THAT

REVELATION AND

THE RARE PUBLIC MEETING SEEMED

DESIGNED

TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE TO THE

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE WHITE

HOUSE.

THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA

LISTENED TO

PRIME MINISTER NETANYU. THEY

TOTALLY

DISAGREE WITH THE VERY NAIVE

MISPERCEPTION OF IRAN BY

PRESIDENT

OBAMA A

IRANIAN PRESS EVEN COVERED

THE

EVENT. THE TIMING OF THE

MEETING SEEMED

PLANNED AND OVERSHADOWED THE

MEETING IN

SWITZERLAND BETWEEN IRAN AND

U.S. AND

OTHER POWERS.

IN FACT THE ISRAELIS ARE

VERY VERY

CONCERNED ABOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA

BEING

PREOCCUPIED WITH LOEZAN WHICH

CONFLICTS

DRAMATICALLY WITH THE REALITY

IN THE

PERSIA GULF. IN FACT THE

IRANIANS ARE

TRYING TO TOPPLE EVERY SINGLE

AMERICAN

REGIME.

FORMER ISRAELIAN AMBASSADOR

SAYS THE

THREAT IRAN POSSESS EXPLAINS

THE CHANGE

IN RELATIONS.

AS FAR AS IRAN IS CONCERNED

THE

MOST EFFECTIVE LIFE INSURANCE

THAT THEY

HAVE AGAINST IRAN.

WHILE ISRAEL HAS REMAINED

ENEMIES

FOR DECADES. HUGE DIFFERENCE

REMAIN

BETWEEN THESE TWO BUT AN

ALLIANCE SEEMS

CLASSICAL, THE ENEMY OF MY

ENEMY IS MY

FRIEND.

Pat: THAT'S AN AMAZING

ALLIANCE. IF

EGYPT AND JORDAN COMES ON BOARD

YOU

SUDDENLY HAVE A COALITION OF

THE

WILLING AND ABLE AGAINST IRAN

AND

DESPITE OF WHAT FANTASY THAT IS

IN THE

MIND OF OBAMA. YOU JUST DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT HE'S HOPING

FOR, BUT

WHATEVER IT IS IT DOESN'T

SQUARE WITH

REALITY.

WELL, IN OTHER NEWS, THE

STRONGEST

ECONOMY IN THE WORLD IS TAKING

A STAND

AGAINST VLADIMIR PUTIN. JOHN

HAS THAT

STORY IN CBN NEWSROOM IN

WASHINGTON.

THANKS, PAT. RUSSIA AND THE

ISLAMIST

TERRORIST TOPPED THE AGENDA AS

THE

CHIEF MET HIS LEADERS SUNDAY.

IN RUSSIA

WILL BE MAINTAINED. SOME ARE

STARTING

TO QUESTION THE AMERICAN

STRATEGY ON

FOREIGN POLICY.

RUSSIA MISSED THE SUMMIT FOR

A

SECOND YEAR IN A ROW. THAT'S

BECAUSE

THE LEADERS IN THE WORLD'S TOP

DEMOCRACIES KICKED THEM OUT OF

THEIR

ANNUAL MEETING FROM UKRAINE.

RUSSIA WAS FURTHER ISOLATED

WHEN THE

SUMMIT IMPOSED SANCTIONS LAST

YEAR

BECAUSE IT WAS INVOLVED IN THE

ANNEXATION OF CRIMEA AND REBELS

IN THE

UKRAINE.

ANGELA MERKEL POSTED THIS

SUMMIT

SHARED A BEER WITH OBAMA

PRESIDENT

OBAMA REVEALED WHAT WAS ON HIS

MIND.

STANDING UP TO AGGRESSION IN

UKRAINE.

THAT THE SANCTIONS SHOULD

NOT BE

LIFTED. PUTIN SAYS THE WEST HAS

NOTHING

TO FEAR FROM RUSSIA AND CREAM I

--

CRIMEA AND ELSEWHERE. THEY MOVE

TO

WEAKEN THE SANCTIONS AGAINST

RUSSIA

WITH OR WITHOUT UNITED STATES

AND

GERMANY. ALSO CONCERN TO THE G

7

LEADERS, THE WARNING -- WAR ON

ISLAMIC

STATES AND SYRIA. THE EFFORT TO

CAPTURE

RAMADI AND THE IRAQI TO

BAGHDAD. AND

WITH IRAQI MAKING GAIN IN SYRIA

AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S POLICIES

BEING CALLED

INTO QUESTION, NOT ONLY BY

THOSE IN

U.S. BUT AMERICA'S CLOSEST

ALLIES.

> THANKS, GARY.

A MAJOR DEFEAT IN TURKEY IS

IN

ISLAMIC VOTING. THE PARTY

FINISHED THE

ELECTION WITH 41% OF THE VOTE.

THAT'S

CONSIDERED A STUNNING REVIEW

TO EXPAND

HIS POWER IN THE SYSTEM. THE

OPPOSITION

THANKED THE VOTERS.

I WANT TO EXPRESS MY

GRATITUDE AND

THANK ALL OF MY CITIZENS WHO

HAVE

VOTED. I HOPE THIS ELECTION

WILL

IMPROVE OUR DEMOCRACY AND

FREEDOM AND

SPREADS WILL FAIR IN A FAR

REACHING WAY

TO EVERYONE.

HE HAS NOW 45 DAYS TO FORM A

NEW

GOVERNMENT.

Pat: I HOPE THEY ARE

SUCCESSFUL

BECAUSE THEY WERE MOVING

TOWARDS IN

ISLAMIC DICTATORSHIP AND HE

WANTED THE

PRESIDENT INSTEAD OF THE

PARLIAMENTARY

LEADER AND WHAT HIS DESIRE WAS

TO TURN

THE ISLAMIC COUNTRY INTO A

DICTATORSHIP

AND THE VOTERS SAID NO. WE

BREATHE A

SIGH OF RELIEF BECAUSE TURKEY

IS A

MAJOR PLAYER IN THE MIDDLE

EAST. JOHN?

PAT, THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS

HAVE

FALLEN IN ALMOST EVERY STATE

ACCORDING

TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. FINDS

THAT

ABORTION HAS DECLINED IN NEW

STATES

THAT HAVE MADE IT DIFFICULT TO

HAVE

THEM AS WELL AS THOSE PROTECTED

BY THE

LEGISLATION. ABORTIONS ARE DOWN

12%

ACROSS THE COUNTRY SINCE 2010.

ATTRIBUTING THE COST TO THE USE

OF

CONTRACEPTIVES AND ATTITUDES

WITH MORE

WOMEN DECIDING TO CARRY THEIR

PREGNANCIES TO TERM.

HE MISSED 18 OF 23 SHOTS

GIVING

CLEVELAND A WIN OVER THE

WARRIORS AT

ONE GAME FINALS FOR EACH. HE

HAS SOME

MEMO RAL -- MEMORABLE PRESS

CONFERENCES. HE CHAMPIONS HIS

CHRISTIAN

FAITH AND FATHERHOOD.

STEPHEN CURRY HAS BEEN

CALLED ONE OF

THE BEST PURE SHOOTERS IN

BASKETBALL

AND HIS SKILL HAS HELPED LAND

THE

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS A SPOT IN

THE NBA

FINALS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 40

YEARS.

HE'S AN UNBELIEVABLE

COMPETITOR, HE

WANTS TO WIN, BUT MORE AND MORE

HIS

RELATIONSHIP.

AS HE HAS SEEN MANY

RELATIONSHIPS ON

AND OFF THE COURT AND MORE OF

HIS

WILLINGNESS TO SHARE HIS FAITH

IN JESUS

CHRIST.

HE LIVES IT FULLY AND HE

ENJOYS LIFE

BECAUSE HE HAS PEACE WITH HIS

LIFE. HE

HAS A RELATIONSHIP THAT EXCEEDS

A 3

POINT SHOT, ACCOLADES IN THE

ARENA HE'S

A FAMILY WIFE. HE LOVES HIS

WIFE AND

HIS DAUGHTER.

THAT LOVE FOR HIS

TWO-YEAR-OLD RILEY

HAS PLAYED OUT IN PRESS

CONFERENCES.

WE ARE BOTH SUPPOSED TO HELP

OUR

TEAM WIN. THE CELEBRATION WE

HAVE AS A

GAME 5 WITH OUR FAMILY AND BE

A NORMAL

FAMILY AS POSSIBLE AND SHE HAS

A

PERSONALITY THAT IS PRETTY

ELECTRIC AND

LOVES THAT SCENE. THERE IS NO

MOTIVE.

IT'S JUST ME AND HER HANGING

OUT.

HE'S TAKING SOME HEAT FROM

REPORTER'S FOR THE DADDY

DAUGHTER CAME

FROM -- CAMERA.

THAT HE RECEIVED PRESSURE.

THAT REALLY BOTHERED ME

BECAUSE THE

QUESTION KEEPS COMING UP WHERE

ARE THE

FATHERS, WHERE ARE THE DADS.

HERE WAS A

GUY THAT TRULY HAD A DAUGHTER

LOVING TO

BE WITH HER DAD.

AT A TIME WHEN ATHLETES

ROUTINELY

MAKE HEADLINES FOR ABUSE.

CHAPMAN EARL

SMITH.

TAKE A WEEK OFF TO GET READY.

A MISSED OPPORTUNITY.

MAYBE THE INTERVIEW SHOULD

HAVE

CHANGED. MAYBE IT SHOULD HAVE

TAKEN A

DIFFERENT DIRECTION AND TALKED

ABOUT IN

A TIME WHEN THERE IS A QUESTION

ABOUT

ATHLETES, A QUESTION ABOUT

FATHERS AND

THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THEIR

CHILDREN.

ENJOYING THE MOMENT. YOU

WANTED TO

SAY THAT.

I'M GOING TO ENJOY THOSE

TIMES WITH

MY DAUGHTER REGARDLESS WHATEVER

HAPPENS

WHATEVER CAMERAS POINT OUR WAY.

THAT'S

A SPECIAL TIME.

SHE'S TAKING ADVANTAGE OF

THE MOMENT.

RILEY WILL SOON GET SOME

COMPANY OFF

THE COURT WITH A BABY BROTHER

OR SISTER

EXPECTED NEXT MONTH. EFREM

GRAHAM, CBN

NEWS.

THE GAME TIME CAN GET A

LITTLE MORE

CROWDED. HE AND HIS WIFE ARE

EXPECTING

A SECOND CHILD. WHAT A GREAT

EXAMPLE OF

FATHERHOOD.

Pat: WE COMMEND HIM AND THANK

HIM FOR

BEING AN EXTRAORDINARY ATHLETE.

Terry: THE QUESTION PLAGUING

THE

CHURCHES OF AMERICA. CAN WE

DEAL WITH

HOMOSEXUALITY.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE FOR

ME TO

FOLLOW JESUS.

HERE IS HOW CHURCHES ARE

TRYING TO

ANSWER THAT QUESTION AFTER THIS.

> YOU ARE WATCHING THE "700

CLUB". WE

ARE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

ACCORDING TO SURVEYS THAT I

HAVE SEEN,

1% OF THE PEOPLE IN THE NATION

IDENTIFY

THEMSELVES AS BEING LESBIAN. 2%

IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS BEING

GAY OR

HOMOSEXUAL AND YET SOMEHOW THAT

1% AND

2% HAVE JUST TOTALLY TAKEN OVER

THE

DISCUSSION IN OUR NATION ABOUT

EVERYTHING. AND NOW, THE NATION

IS

WAITING FOR A SUPREME COURT

DECISION ON

THE FUTURE OF MARRIAGE. MANY

CHURCHES

ARE ALSO EXAMINING AN IMPORTANT

QUESTION. HOW DO THEY MINISTER

TO

PEOPLE WHO ARE ATTRACTED TO

OTHERS OF

THE SAME SEX. HEATHER CELLS

TAKES A

LOOK AT THAT ISSUE.

I WAS AFRAID TO TELL ANYBODY

BECAUSE

IN THE CHRISTIAN CIRCLE I HEARD

THOSE

PEOPLE ARE SICK AND I WAS

STRUGGLING

WITH THOSE FEELINGS.

CYNTHIA AUSTIN ATTENDED

CHURCH WITH

HER FAMILY AND ACCEPTED CHRIST

AS A

YOUNG GIRL AND NEVER MANLD --

IMAGINED

A SAME SEX ATTRACTION.

IT WAS CONFUSING WHEN THESE

FEELINGS

STARTED.

MILLIONS STRUGGLE WITH

FEELINGS LIKE

AUSTIN'S. THAT'S WHY BAPTIST

HAVE SPENT

TRAINING MANY.

ATTRACTING THE SAME SEX THAT

IS A

CULTURAL LEADING ISSUE OF OUR

TIME AND

LOOKING FOR FRESH APPROACHES.

PASTOR DAN BACK INS LEADS A

LARGE

CHURCH IN VIRGINIA AND WRESTLED

WITH

THIS CHALLENGE FOR YEARS.

WE ARE NOT IN MAYBERRY.

WALKING

AROUND WITH PLACARDS, SCREAMING

ON A

TELEVISION PROGRAM AND TALKING

ON A

NEWS INTERVIEW. THOSE DAYS ARE

GONE. WE

HAVE TO HAVE A PROPHETIC

STRATEGY AND

LISTENS AND FOLLOWS WITH THE

LAW.

DR. RUSSEL MOORE SAYS HE'S

GLAD

PASTORS WANT HELP IN DEALING

WITH THIS

ISSUE.

IF THE CHURCH ISN'T ASKING

THESE

QUESTIONS, IT MEANS THE CHURCH

IS NOT

ON MISSION IN ITS COMMUNITY.

THE STARTING POINT IS TO NOT

SEGREGATE THOSE DEALING WITH

SEXUAL SIN

NOR LOOK DOWN ON THIS STRUGGLE.

THAT SOME SINCE ARE

ESPECIALLY

REPULSIVE OR SOME SINS THAT ARE

OUTSIDE

THE REACH OF CHRIST EVEN

IMPLICITLY.

THAT IS REALLY A MESSAGE OF

HUMAN

PRIDE. THAT'S ASSERTING IT

DIDN'T TAKE

AS MUCH GOSPEL TO SAVE ME AS IT

WOULD

TO SAVE YOU. THAT'S BLASPHEMY.

SHE WOULD KNOW. 10 YEARS AGO

HER SON

WROTE HER A LETTER TELLING HER

HE WAS

GAY. IN ADDITION TO WORKING

THROUGH HER

OWN GRIEF, SHE FELT SAME BY

FELLOW

BELIEVERS.

SIN IS SIN. GOD DOESN'T SEE

IT

DIFFERENT. BUT SOMEHOW THERE IS

A

FEELING THAT THIS IS THE WORST,

THE

MOST AWFUL.

BRADSHAW NOW LEADS A SUPPORT

OF

PARENTS FOR GAY CHILDREN. IT'S

THE

RECOGNITION THAT THE BODY OF

CHRIST CAN

HELP THOSE STRUGGLING AND THOSE

FAMILIES. CYNTHIA AUSTIN, THE

CHURCH

EVENTUALLY BECAME HER LIFELINE.

WHAT I FOUND WITH THE CHURCH

IS SAFE

PEOPLE WITHIN THE CHURCH. A

COMMUNITY

WITHIN THE CHURCH.

SHE SAYS SMALL GROUP MEMBERS

SHARED

THEIR STRUGGLES AND SHOWED

RESPECT FOR

HERS.

THEY LOVE ME WITH THE TRUTH

OF GOD.

THEY DIDN'T WATER DOWN TRUTH.

THEY LOVE

ME AND KEPT SAYING THERE IS A

BETTER

WAY. THERE IS A BETTER WAY.

CREATING A HOPE AND VISION

FOR THAT

BETTER WAY IS KEY SAYS MORE.

THAT MANY

GAYS THERE IS NO GUARANTEE

THEIR SEXUAL

FEELINGS WILL GO AWAY. THE

QUESTION

BECOMES HOW TO PURSUE CHRIST IN

THE

MIDST OF THEIR BATTLE.

I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT

QUESTION

THAT MANY OF US HAVE TO ANSWER

IN OUR

CHURCHES IS WHAT VISION OF THE

FUTURE

ARE WE GIVING TO THAT GAY OR

LESBIAN OR

TRANSGENDER PERSON WHO COMES

INTO THE

CHURCH AND SAYS I REALLY WANT

TO LIVE

IN SUBMISSIONS OF JESUS, I

REALLY WANT

TO LIVE IN REPENTANCE OF SIN.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO THOSE

WHO

IDENTIFY AS GAY OR SAME SEX

ATTRACTED.

CAN THEY TEACH OR BECOME CHURCH

LEADERS. AND WHAT ABOUT THOSE

ALREADY

IN GAY MARRIAGES. BACK INS

BEGINS WITH

THE SIMPLE ANSWER. DO WELL IN

LOVING

THEM.

GOD ISN'T INTERESTED IN

WHAT'S RIGHT

OR WRONG. GOD IS INTERESTED IN

ARE WE

PRESENTED RIGHT OR WRONG IN A

LOVING

WAY.

THAT WAY FOR AUSTIN AND FOR

MANY

OTHERS WITH SIMILAR JOURNIES.

I AM NOT THE SAME PERSON. I

CANNOT

EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE. MY

ANGER, MY

RAGE, IT IS LIKE NIGHT AND DAY.

MY

IDENTITY IS NOT IN WHO I AM

WITH AND

WHO I LOVE HERE. MY IDENTITY IS

IN

JESUS CHRIST. MY IDENTITY IS

WHAT HE

HAS DONE FOR ME.

HEATHER CELLS. CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANK YOU.

I THINK A PERSON WHO IS

HETEROSEXUAL

DOESN'T MEAN THEY CAN GO AND

HAVE SEX

WITH EVERY OPPOSITE SEX THEY

CAN GET

THEIR HANDS-ON. 1 MAN SAYS I

CAN HAVE

SEX WITH ANYONE I CAN ENCOUNTER

AND

THEY SAY THAT IS WRONG. IN THE

GAY

COMMUNITY YOU CAN HAVE SEX WITH

ANYBODY. IT'S NOT A SIN? OF

COURSE IT

IS. IT'S THE TENDENCY THAT IS

NOT THE

SIN, IT'S THE ACT THAT IS

WRONG. I

THINK WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT

WHEN WE

DIE, THE NEXT LIFE IS NOT GOING

TO BE

ANY MALE OR FEMALE. IT'S NOT

GOING TO

BE ANY MARRIAGE OR GIVING OF

MARRIAGE.

IT WILL BE LIKE THE ANGELS. ALL

OF THIS

STUFF WILL BE LEFT AND THESE

WILL

DIMINISH REGARDLESS OF WHAT

YOUR

PRESENT ORIENTATION IS. LET'S

KEEP OUR

EYE ON THE ULTIMATE AND THAT IS

JESUS

COMING UP DOWN THE ROAD WHEN WE

LEAVE

THIS WORLD. TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, TWO HIKERS

WHO GOT

LOST AT THE BOTTOM OF A CANYON.

UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, THE

FOREST

SERVICE HAD GONE IN THERE AND

CHANGED

THE NUMBERS TO THE ROAD AND WE

COULD

NOT FIND THE ROAD.

HEAR HOW THEY MADE IT OUT

ALIVE WHEN

WE COME BACK.

Pat: HIKING IS A WONDERFUL

PASTIME

AND THERE ARE PLACES LIKE

NATIONAL

PARKS THAT ARE ABSOLUTELY

DELIGHTFUL.

DONNA AND JOSEPH DANIELS LOVED

TO GO

HIKING. 2 YEARS AGO THEY FOUND

THEMSELVES LOST, TRAPPED AND

ONLY A

PRAYER FOR SURVIVAL.

THEY EXPLORED THE ROCKY

CANYONS OF

CLEAR CREEK ARIZONA WHICH

SHOULD HAVE

BEEN AN ORDINARY HIKE SOON

TURNED INTO

A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.

I TOLD HIM I WOULD TAKE HIM

INTO THE

THE WILDS OF ARIZONA INTO SOME

PLACES.

THE LAST TIME I WAS THERE IN

2010.

IT'S A VERY BIG FOREIGN

RESERVE

ABOUT A THOUSAND MILES. WE HAD

TROUBLE

FINDING THE TRAIL HEAD.

UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, THE

FOREST

SERVICE CHANGED THE NUMBERS ON

THE ROAD.

WE TRIED TO FIND ANOTHER WAY

DOWN

AND UNFORTUNATELY WE GOT

TRAPPED IN

THIS CANYON. WE CROSSED TWO

BODIES OF

WATER THAT WE COULD NOT RECROSS

EVEN IF

WE WERE ABLE TO SWIM BACK TO

WHERE WE

DROPPED INTO THE WATER, WE

COULDN'T GET

THE ATTRACTION -- TRACTION TO

CLIMB UP

THAT SHOOT.

IT'S SHEAR ROCK, STRAIGHT

DOWN. AT

THAT POINT WE CAN'T GO BACK AND

WE

CAN'T GO FURTHER. WE SPENT 5 OR

6

HOURS, WE DON'T HAVE WATER OR

FOOD.

THEN DON FOUND AND AREA

WHERE HE

THOUGHT HE CAN GET OUT.

I GOT UP TO ANOTHER WALL, I

JUST RAN

OUT OF GAS. I REALIZED IF I

MADE IT

OVER THAT WALL AND WENT ON UP,

I

COULDN'T DO THAT I DIDN'T HAVE

THE

STRENGTH LEFT TO PULL MY BODY

WEIGHT

UP. I THOUGHT I NEED TO GO BACK

DOWN. I

CAN'T SPEND THE NIGHT HERE ON

THE SIDE

OF THIS CLIFF.

DON BEGAN TO DESCENT BUT HE

SLIPPED

AND FELL AND DISLOCATED HIS

RIGHT

SHOULDER AND BROKE HIS SHOULDER

AS HE

FELL.

I WASN'T GOING ANYWHERE.

THERE WAS

THE POSSIBILITY IF I TRIED TO

GET DOWN

TO WHERE JOSEPH WAS THAT I

WOULD START

FALLING AND NOT BE ABLE TO STOP.

BOTH CHRISTIANS, KNEW WHAT

THEY HAD

TO DO, PRAY. BUT PRAYER WASN'T

THE

FIRST THING ON DON'S MIND.

I WAS ANGRY AT GOD FOR

ALLOWING THIS

TO HAPPEN AND I WAS ANGRY AND

JOSEPH

BECAUSE HE MADE SOME DECISIONS

AND I

WAS ANGRY AT ME. I COULDN'T

GOTTEN

JOSEPH OUT OF THERE WHEN HE

CROSSED IT

AND THERE WAS NO WAY BACK.

DON TRIED TO MAKE A 911

PHONE CALL

BUT THERE WAS NO SIGNAL.

HE THREW THE PHONE TO ME AND

I WAS

ABOUT 100 FEET AWAY AND I WAS

AT

YELLING DISTANCE AND WHEN I

MADE MY WAY

THROUGH THE CREVASSE, I WAS

YELLING AT

HIM. I STARTED TO SAY OUR

FATHER IS

WITH US, JESUS IS HERE. IT'S

GOING TO

BE ALL RIGHT.

AS JOSEPH WAS CLIMBING OUT,

WE WERE

PRAISING AND PRAYER BETWEEN

EACH OTHER.

FROM THERE I WENT UP ABOUT

200 FEET

USING MY BODY. I NEVER CLIMBED

BEFORE

AND I KEPT HEARING THE HOLY

SPIRIT

INSIDE ME. IT'S GOING TO BE

OKAY. GRAB

HERE, GRAB THERE. TURN THIS

WAY, TURN

THAT WAY.

THE ONLY WAY YOU GET TO THE

SECTION

OF THE CANYON WE ARE IN IS

PEOPLE REPEL

INTO IT ON ROPES AND THEY GO

OUT ON THE

ROPES THEY COME IN ON AND GET

OUT OF

THAT CANYON.

WHILE THEY PRAYED, JOSEPH

FOUND A

MAN WHO HAD GEAR.

MICHAEL REPELLED DOWN AND HE

SENT ME

DOWN A JACKET TO PUT ON WHICH

REALLY

WAS A GODSEND.

MICHAEL SAT WITH HIM FOR

THREE HOURS

AS THEY WAITED FOR THE SEARCH

AND

RESCUE TEAM. DURING THOSE THREE

HOURS

MICHAEL SHARED WITH HIM ABOUT

GOD'S

GRACE.

THEY TRANSFERRED ME FROM THE

HELICOPTER BASKET TO THE

MEDICAL CART.

IT WAS VERY HARD BECAUSE THE

WIND FROM

THE HELICOPTER AND HE WAS VERY

VERY

SICK AND FRAGILE. WE PUT HIM IN

THE

AMBULANCE FROM THERE.

LOOKING BACK AT HOW GOD

SAVED HIM IN

THE CANYON, DON SAYS THE BIBLE

VERSE

HELPED HIM MAKE IT THROUGH THE

NIGHT.

I WAS REMINDING OF ROMANS

8.28 WHICH

IS A SCRIPTURE FOR ME. WE KNOW

THAT GOD

CALLS ALL THINGS TO WORK

TOGETHER FOR

GOOD AND THAT LOVE HIM AND ARE

CALLED

ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSES.

I ASKED HIM EVERYTHING

THAT'S IN

YOUR HEART AND BELIEVE HIM AND

YOU HAVE

TO TRUST. TAKE HIS DOUBT AWAY.

I READ

IN YOUR WORD, YOU ARE POWERFUL

AND

ANOINTING. I WANT TO SEE YOUR

ANSWER. I

WANT TO SEE THIS BUT YOU HAVE

TO TRUST

AND ASK FOR HELP.

TRUST AND OBEY, THERE IS NO

OTHER

WAY TO BE HAPPY IN JESUS TO

TRUST AND

OBEY. MAN, WERE THEY CLOSE TO

DEATH.

ALL RIGHT, WE GOT SOME ANSWERS

TO

PRAYER. WE WANT TO PRAY FOR

YOU. HE

WAS IN SOUTH CAROLINA WITH A

LOT OF

PAIN AND HE COULDN'T WALK AND

ONE DAY

TERRY SAYS YOU HAVE SOMETHING

WRONG

WITH YOUR HEEL AND LATER THAT

DAY HIS

PAIN WENT AWAY.

Terry: A PERSON WITH AN EYE

CONDITION

AND WHILE WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, PAT,

YOU GAVE THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE. YOUR

EYE IS IRRITATING AND ALL OF

HIS

SYMPTOMS WENT AWAY AND HE

HASN'T HAD

ANY TROUBLE SINCE THEN.

I WAS READING IN I SAIAH

WHERE THE

PROPHET BEGINS TO GIVE PRAISE

TO THE

LORD. WHEN YOU READ THE OLD

TESTAMENT

WHEN THEY USE CAPITAL LORD IS

THE WORD

THEY USE TO TRANSLATE YAHWEH.

SO THE

PROPHET IS PRAYING YAHWEH. YOU

ARE MY

GOD AND WE LOVE YOU AND WE

PRAISE YOU.

YAHWEH, HE WHO CAUSES

EVERYTHING TO BE.

AS I WAS THINKING, I MEDITATE

ON THESE

THINGS, THERE IS AN ENORMOUS

UNIVERSE.

AND THIS PLANET WHERE IT'S ONE

LITTLE

TINY FLASH SPECK IN THE MIDST

OF A

UNIVERSE THAT HAS HUNDREDS,

TRILLIONS

OF STARS, TRILLIONS OF BILLIONS

OF

STARS AND WE THINK IT'S

SIGNIFICANT.

YET GOD WILL ANSWER A PRAYER

BUT YOU

ALSO REALIZE HE CAN DO

ANYTHING. HE

ABSOLUTELY CAN DO ANYTHING. HE

CAN

CAUSE WHOLE SECTIONS OF YOUR

BODY TO BE

RECREATED. HE CAN TAKE AWAY

PAIN. HE

CAN TAKE CARE OF FINANCES. HE

CAN BRING

FAMILIES TOGETHER. THERE IS

NOTHING HE

CAN'T DO. SO WHAT HE SAYS IS

WILL YOU

TRUST ME. WILL YOU BELIEVE ME.

IT'S

LIKE ABRAHAM. HE AIMED AT GOD

AND

BELIEVED GOD.

TERRY AND IRE GOING TO JOIN

HANDS

TOGETHER AND WE ARE GOING TO

BELIEVE

FOR YOU RIGHT NOW. THE GOD WE

SERVE,

YAHWEH HE WHO CAUSES THINGS TO

BE, HE

WILL DO MORE THAN YOU CAN ASK.

WE JOIN

NOW AND WE PRAY.

FATHER, IN JESUS NAME, I JOIN

WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST AND WE BELIEVE

YOU

NOW, LORD, TOUCH LIVES.

SOMEBODY HAS AN

ULCER. YOU HAVE A SERIOUS ULCER

AND YOU

ARE NAUSEATED, YOU ARE GOING TO

BE

HEALED. EVEN NOW AS WE SPEAK

YOU WILL

BE ABLE TO EAT ANYTHING YOU

WANT TO.

YOU ARE HEALED.

Terry: YOU HAVE A CRUSHED

CLAVICLE

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THERE IS A BLAST AND

YOUR EYES

HAVE BEEN DAMAGED. PUT YOUR

HANDS OVER

YOUR EYES AND YOU WILL BE ABLE

TO SEE

COMPLETELY. THAT IS HEALED IN

JESUS'

NAME.

Terry: YOU HAVE BEEN UNDER A

NUMBER

OF MEDICATIONS. GOD IS HEALING

YOU NOW.

Pat: BUSINESSMAN, YOU ARE

PRAYING FOR

A MILLION DOLLARS FOR YOUR

BUSINESS.

GOD HAS GOT ALL THE MONEY IN

THE WORLD.

HE'S GOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR

NEEDS.

YOU ARE GOING TO FIND DOORS

OPEN. YOU

WILL HAVE THE FUNDS YOU NEED TO

PROSPER

IN JESUS'S NAME. THANK YOU,

LORD. AMEN.

PLEASE CALL US. THERE ARE

PEOPLE AT THE

TELEPHONES NOW, TOLL-FREE PHONE

NUMBER:

1-800-759-0700. THEY ARE THERE

AND THEY

WILL TAKE YOUR CALL AND REJOICE

WITH

YOU AND ANSWER TO PRAYERS AND

THEY WILL

PRAY FOR YOU. THEY WILL PRAISE

THE LORD

ALONG WITH YOU. PICK UP THE

PHONE AND

CALL IT. SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO

LOVES

YOU. HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, IT'S TIME

TO

BRING IT ON. ONE VIEWER SAID

WHEN MY

16-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER GOT A JOB,

HER

BOSS SEDUCED HER. NOW THEY ARE

MARRIED.

WE ARE GOING TO TACKLE THAT

LATER ON

TODAY'S SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO WASHINGTON

FOR THIS

CBN NEWSBREAK. THE RAIN HAS

STOPPED AND

PEOPLE ARE STILL FLOODING TO AND

HAVING

TROUBLE IN RELYING ON HELP.

THEY DISH

OUT 18-20,000 MEALS IN JUST

EIGHT DAYS.

CBN IS USING DIGITAL MEDIA TO

EVANGELIZE AN AUDIENCE

MINISTERING TO

PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE.

HE'S NOW

ONLINE TO MEET THE GROWING

DEMAND.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES TO ASK

QUESTIONS

AND SEEKING ADVICE DIRECTLY

FROM THE

HOST. CBN WORKS WITH CALL

CENTERS FROM

FIVE COUNTRIES TO HANDLE CALLS.

TODAY

CBN HAS PRODUCED EIGHT

EPISODES.

YOU CAN FIND OUT WHAT CBN IS

DOING

AROUND THE WORLD BY LOGGING ON

TO

CBN.COM/INTERNATIONAL. PAT AND

TERRY

WILL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

Terry: IT'S TIME TO BRING IT

ON WITH

SOME OF YOUR E-MAILS. WHEN MY

DAUGHTER

WAS 16 SHE GOT AN AFTER SCHOOL

JOB AND

HER BOSS SEDUCED HER AND HE

CLAIMED TO

BE A CHRISTIAN. MY DAUGHTER RAN

AWAY TO

BE WITH HIM. HE DIVORCED HIS

WIFE AND

HE AND MY DAUGHTER LIVED

TOGETHER FOR

FIVE YEARS AND THEY ARE

MARRIED. HE'S A

PREACHER NOW. DO YOU THINK THAT

GOD

RECOGNIZES HIS MARRIAGE AND

MINISTRY?

NO. HE BROKE THE LAW. TO

HAVE SEX

WITH A 16-YEAR-OLD. DEPENDS ON

WHERE

THE STATE IS BUT THAT CAN GET

NEW JAIL

JUST THERE. THE FACT THAT HE'S

MARRIED,

HAS CHILDREN AND THEN SE DUCES

A CHILD.

THE MARRIAGE IS BASED ON --

IT'S THE

WORST KIND OF BLASPHEMY. WHAT A

MESS.

WE SEE THIS TODAY, THOUGH. YOU

KNOW,

HE'S CONTROLLED BY THIS. HE

SEE'S A

YOUNG GIRL WHO IS 16 AND SHE'S

APPEALING AND PHYSICALLY

ATTRACTIVE AND

HIS WIFE IS PREGNANT OR NOT TOO

ATTRACTIVE AND THIS GETS THE

BETTER OF

HIM. HE WILL PAY THE PRICE.

A WOMAN WHO SAID I SAW THE

FACE OF A

WOMAN WHO WAS HEALED AND DOES

THAT MEAN

THAT GOD LOVES YOU?

YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. WHY

ARE

PEOPLE ARE NOT HEALED IS IT

BECAUSE

THERE IS SIN IN THEIR LIFE, IS

IT

BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE FAITH,

IS IT

BECAUSE IT ISN'T QUITE TIME? I

REALLY

DON'T KNOW. REMEMBER CATHERINE

SAID IF

I FIND THE ANSWER I WILL ASK

GOD WHEN I

GET TO HEAVEN. SHE DIDN'T KNOW

AND WE

DON'T KNOW WHY SOME GET HEALED

AND

OTHERS DON'T. IT DOESN'T MEAN

THAT GOD

DOES NOT LOVE YOU.

ANOTHER ONE. I WAS SAVED

WHEN I WAS

SEVEN YEARS OLD AND FILLED WITH

THE

SPIRIT. I LIKE MOST CHRISTIANS

ARE

APPALLED WITH WHAT'S GOING ON

IN THE

WORLD AND WISH GOD WOULD TAKE

IT AWAY.

ON JUNE 4, YOU SAID WE HAVE TO

STAND UP

AND MAKE OUR VOICE HEARD. HOW

DO WE DO

THAT. WE LIVE IN A TOWN AND WE

HAVE NO

WAY HOW TO MAKE OUR OPINION

KNOWN. I

THINK MORE PEOPLE WOULD BE MORE

VOCAL

BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW.

YOU CAN MAKE YOUR EFFECTIVE.

THE

POLITICAL SYSTEM, THERE ARE

PRECINCTS,

NEIGHBORHOODS, THE FOUNDATION

OF THE

POLITICAL SYSTEM. YOU LOOK AT

SOMEBODY

LIKE BILL CLINTON. WHERE WAS

HIS HOME?

HOPE ARKANSAS. YOU HAVE ANOTHER

PERSON

FROM THIS LITTLE TOWN. THERE IS

SOMEBODY THERE WHO BEGINS IN

THE

POLITICAL SYSTEM, IN THE

PRECINCT

SYSTEM HE BEGINS TO WORK IN A

PARTY. HE

BEGINS TO BE INFORMED OF THE

ISSUES.

WITH THE INTERNET, WITH THE WAY

THINGS

ARE, YOU ARE GET YOUR OPINIONS

ACROSS

THE WORLD. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS TYPE A

FEW WORDS ON A COMPUTER AND

THERE IT

GOES. HOW DO YOU VOICE? START

SPEAKING

OUT ON THE THINGS THAT UPSET

YOU AND

THERE WILL BE A LOT OF PEOPLE

THAT WILL

ATTACK YOU AND THEN YOU WILL

SHARPEN

YOUR RHETORIC. THAT'S HOW YOU

DO IT.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF WAYS. FOR

EFFECTIVENESS, GET IN THE

POLITICAL

SYSTEM AND YOU WILL FIND THERE

IS A

HUGE VACUUM INERTIA IN THE

POLITICAL

PROCESS AND PEOPLE CAN HAVE

ENORMOUS

INFLUENCE IF THEY JUST EXERT

THEMSELVES.

THIS IS MELANIE, I WAS

WONDERING

WHAT YOUR VIEW IS ON ALIENS.

WHERE DO

THEY COME FROM AND WHAT DOES

THE BIBLE

SAY ABOUT IT?

Pat: THE ONLY ALIENS I KNOW

ARE

DEMONS OR ANGELS. THEY ARE

FALLEN

ANGELS. I DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE

AN

ALIEN VISITATION. THERE ARE

ALIENS WHO

GAVE HELP TO THOSE INDIANS. YOU

HAVE

THE RUNWAY FROM PERU. THERE ARE

VERY

INTRIGUING STORIES BUT A BUNCH

OF

BOLOGNA.

THAT'S ALL WE HAVE TODAY.

THANK YOU

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

EVERY YEAR IN INDIA,

THOUSANDS ARE

CHILDREN ARE BORN WITH DEFECTS

AND THEY

ARE SHUN BY SOCIETY BECAUSE OF

ANCIENT

SUPERSTITION.

THEY BELIEVE IF A WOMAN CUTS

ANYTHING DURING A LUNAR CLIPS,

THEIR

CHILD WILL BE BORN WITH A CLEFT

LIP.

I DIDN'T REALIZE IT. DURING

ONE

LUNAR ECLIPSE, I CUT SOMETHING.

I

DIDN'T KNOW IT WOULD DO THIS.

THEY WERE WORRIED THEIR SON

WOULD BE

AFFECTED FOR HIS ENTIRE LIFE.

HER

HUSBAND WORKS AS A FARM LABOR

EARNING

$5 EVERYDAY.

WE HARDLY MAKE ANY MONEY TO

PAY OUR

RENT AND TAKE CARE OF OUR

FAMILY.

THEN IN A VILLAGE WE GAVE

THEM GREAT

NEWS. WE WOULD GIVE HIM FREE

SURGERY AT

A HOSPITAL AT A NEARBY CITY. A

MONTH

LATER WE VISITED THEIR FAMILY

TO SEE

HOW THEY WERE DOING.

HE LOOKED SO GOOD. I NEVER

IMAGINED

THIS DAY WOULD COME. BEFORE THE

SURGERY, MY IN LAWS DID NOT

CARE FOR

HIM. BUT NOW THEY WON'T LET HIM

GO. MY

SON'S LIFE HAS COMPLETELY

TRANSFORMED.

I THANK EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS

POSSIBLE.

Terry: LOVE, HOPE,

ACCEPTANCE, A

FUTURE. ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE

THINGS

THAT EVERYONE OF US WISH FOR

OUR

CHILDREN. THIS LITTLE FAMILY IS

NO

DIFFERENT. THEY JUST HAD A

MEDICAL

NEED. THEY SIMPLY COULDN'T

CLIMB UP THE

PHONE

NUMBER: 1-800-759-0700. UP

NEXT, A PILL

POPPER WAKES UP FREE FROM

ADDICTION.

I LITERALLY FELL INTO A DEEP

SLEEP.

I REMEMBER WAKING UP THE NEXT

MORNING,

PRETTY MUCH ALMOST ALL THE

WITHDRAWAL

SYMPTOMS WERE GONE.

FIND OUT WHY IT HAPPENED.

THAT'S

NEXT.

DAVID PATRICK WAS MAD AT

GOD. HE

FELT AS IF THE CREATOR OF THE

UNIVERSE

WASN'T TREATING HIM FAIRLY

UNTIL THE

DAY HE MET HIM AT A REHAB

CENTER.

DAVID PATRICK LOVED MAKING

UNIQUE

GUITARS. EVERY NEW CREATION

REMINDS HIM

OF HOW GOD CHANGED HIM INTO A

NEW MAN.

HE TOOK SOMETHING OLD AND

MADE IT

NEW. IT'S WHAT HE DOES OF US.

HE TOOK

ME AND PUT ME BACK TOGETHER.

DAVID GREW UP BELIEVING IN

JESUS AND

CONSIDERED HIMSELF A CHRISTIAN

BUT EVEN

INTO ADULTHOOD HE NEVER FELT HE

NEEDED

GOD'S HELP. WHEN HE AND HIS

WIFE

SHANNON COULDN'T CONCEIVE. THEY

DECIDED

SOMETHING ELSE.

WE TOOK OUT A LOAN ON OUR

HOME TO

PAY FOR IN INVETRO

FERTILIZATION.

AS STRESS CONTINUED TO

MOUNT,

SHANNON BLAMED HERSELF.

WHEN ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS

AROUND ARE

GETTING PREGNANT AND YOU KNOW

YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU CAN'T PROVIDE YOUR

HUSBAND

WITH A CHILD WITH A PREGNANCY.

I FELT

SOMETHING WRAS WRONG WITH ME.

DAVID BECAME ANGRY WITH GOD.

I SAID, GOD, WHY CAN'T YOU

GIVE ME

ONE CHILD. I'M NOT ASKING FOR

MUCH. WHY

CAN'T YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN. YOU

CAN JUST

SNAP YOUR FINGERS.

THEY DECIDED TO ADOPT. THAT

YEAR HE

WAS IN AN ACCIDENT AND DOCTORS

PRESCRIBED PERK SET FOR THE

PAIN AND HE

FOUND OTHER BENEFITS.

IT ALLOWED ME TO ESCAPE

OTHER

ISSUES, THAT I COULDN'T PROVIDE

FOR MY

WIFE WHAT SHE WANTED.

HE CONTINUED TO TAKE IT LONG

AFTER

THE PAIN SUBSIDED. WHEN THE

PRESCRIPTION RAN OUT, A FRIEND

GAVE HIM

OXY COTTON. A STRONGER

PAINKILLER.

IT WAS TOO GOOD TO DESCRIBE.

IT WAS

A FEELING THAT I KNEW I WANTED

TO FEEL

AGAIN.

NOW ADDICTED, DAVID STARTED

TAKING

MONEY FROM HIS DAD'S SHOP. A

PLACE HE

HAD BEEN WORKING SINCE HE WAS A

TEEN.

HIS DAD NOTICED HIS BEHAVIOR.

HIS EYES LOOKED WILD EVERY

TIME HE

CAME TO WORK. I SAID WHAT'S

GOING ON?

AT HOME, HIS BEHAVIOR WAS

ERRATIC

AND HE AND HIS WIFE'S

RELATIONSHIP

BECAME MORE STRAINED.

THEN MY HEART DROPPED. I

THOUGHT

THIS IS NOT HAPPENING TO ME.

I'M NOT

DOING THIS. YOU ARE DONE. YOU

ARE OUT

OF MY LIFE. I'M NOT DEALING

WITH IT.

SHANNON TOLD HIM TO LEAVE. A

WEEK

LATER, DAVID CHECKED HIMSELF

INTO A

DRUG FACILITY. THAT NIGHT HE

TURNED TO

GOD.

I SAID LORD, IF YOU WOULD

TAKE ME,

SAVE ME FROM MYSELF, SAVE ME

FROM MY

SIN, BUT LORD BE THE LORD OF MY

LIFE.

LORD, CHANGE ME. I AM YOURS. IT

WAS

AFTER I CRIED OUT TO GOD, I

LITERALLY

FELL INTO A DEEP SLEEP. I

REMEMBER

WAKING UP THE NEXT MORNING

PRETTY MUCH

ALMOST ALL THE WITHDRAWAL

SYMPTOMS WERE

GONE.

DAVID WAS DISCHARGED INTO

HIS DAD'

CARE. A MONTH LATER HE RETURNED

HOME ON

THE PROMISE HE WOULD ATTEND

NARCOTICS

ANONYMOUS AND THE NEXT THING HE

WOULD

DO IS TELL HIS DAD ABOUT HIS

ADDICTION

AND THE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS HE

STOLE

FROM THE BUSINESS.

HE FORGAVE ME. HE SAID I

LOVE YOU

SON. I JUST WANT MY SON TO BE

OKAY, I

WANT MY SON TO GET BETTER.

IT WAS A LOVE THAT I NEEDED

TO DO

BECAUSE HE IS MY SON, BUT IT

WAS THE

ONLY WAY FOR HIM TO START NEW.

DAVID AN SHANNON STARTED TO

REBUILD

THEIR RELATIONSHIP TOGETHER

AGAIN AND

AFTER 11 YEARS OF TRYING,

SHANNON GAVE

BIRTH TO A BABY GIRL.

WHEN SHE WAS BORN, I WAS

OVERWHELMED

WITH JOY AND THANKING GOD THAT

I WAS

BLESSED WITH A PREGNANCY.

I WAS JUST SAYING THANK YOU

GOD,

THANK YOU LORD WITH TEARS ON MY

FACE.

HE IS FREE OF DRUGS SINCE

2006 AND

THEY HAVE TWO ADOPTED

DAUGHTERS. NOW

WHEN DAVID PLAYS A GUITAR, HE

HAS A

CAPTIVE AUDIENCE.

WHEN GOD CHANGES YOU, WHEN

YOU HAVE

AN ENCOUNTER WITH OUR LORD, OUR

GOD. IT

WILL CHANGE YOU. IT WILL

DELIVER YOU.

THE QUESTION IS NOT WHETHER

GOD CAN

CHANGE YOU. GOD WILL TAKE YOU.

GOD IS

WAITING FOR YOU. WHAT ARE YOU

WAITING

FOR? THE CREATOR OF THE

UNIVERSE AS

PAT SAID EARLIER, THE ONE WHO

FLUNG THE

STARS INTO SKY IS THERE FOR

YOU. IT'S

HIS LOVE, HIS LOVE THAT CHANGES

US.

IT'S NOT ABOUT HAVING GONE TO

CHURCH

ALL YOUR LIFE FOR THINKING YOU

ARE A

CHRISTIAN BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOME

KIND OF

HEAD KNOWLEDGE ABOUT WHO GOD IS

AND WHO

JESUS IS. LISTEN, IT'S ABOUT

RELATIONSHIP. DO YOU HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST?

IF YOU CAN'T ANSWER THAT LIKE

THAT, YES

I DO, YOU NEED ONE.

EVERYONE OF US DOES. IT'S WHAT

WE WERE

CREATED FOR. WE ARE ALL SINNERS

IN THE

NEED OF A CREATOR. EVERYONE OF

US.

THERE IS NOT ONE WITHOUT SIN.

BUT GOD

UNDERSTANDING US AND LOVING US

IN SPITE

OF US MADE A WAY THROUGH JESUS

CHRIST.

SO, TODAY, RIGHT NOW FOR YOU,

WHAT WILL

YOU DO? DO WHAT DAVID DID.

COME TO THE

END OF YOURSELF JUST LIKE THE

PRODIGAL

SON DID IN THE BIBLE AND SAY,

FATHER, I

HAVE SINNED. I HAVE SINNED

AGAINST YOU,

I HAVE SINNED AGAINST MYSELF.

WILL YOU

TAKE ME TODAY, WILL YOU FORGIVE

ME,

WILL YOU TAKE MY SIN AND WIPE

IT CLEAN.

NOT BECAUSE I HAVE EARNED IT,

NOT

BECAUSE I'M GOOD ENOUGH, BUT

BECAUSE

YOU ARE SO AMAZINGLY GOOD AND

GREAT,

GOD. I WANT IT ALL. I WANT A

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU. I WANT

TO LOVE

YOU. I WANT TO RECEIVE YOUR

LOVE FOR

ME. I WANT FORGIVENESS. I WANT

TO SPEND

ETERNITY WITH YOU. IT'S

AVAILABLE TO

YOU. TALK TO HIM LIKE A FRIEND

WHO HAS

WAITED SO PATIENTLY FOR YOU TO

COME TO

A PLACE OF REALIZING YOU NEED

HIM. YOU

REALLY NEED HIM AND HE REALLY

LOVES

YOU. WHEN YOU PRAY THAT PRAYER,

WE HAVE

SOMETHING WE WOULD LIKE TO

OFFER TO

YOU. IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY".

INFORMATION ON HOW TO GROW WITH

HIM.
