In his new book Living the Braveheart Life, filmmaker Randall Wallace tells the story of how writing the screenplay changed his life. Plus, actor Kel Mitchell talks about teenage stardom and the price of fame. Read Transcript


Wendy: GOD IS ON THE

MOVE THROUGHOUT CHINA.

IT WAS TOTALLY BEYOND

OUR EXPECTATIONS.

Wendy: AND

THEN...HAVE YOU EVER

WANTED TO BE WILLIAM

WALLACE.

WHAT WILL YOU DO

WITHOUT FREEDOM?

Wendy: THE

SCREENWRITER BEHIND THE

OSCAR-WINNING MOVIE SHARES

HOW YOU CAN LIVE THE BRAVE

HEART LIFE.

> PLUS THE STORY OF TINA

AND TAL, WHAT YOU WON'T

SEE ON THE HIT SHOW.

THIS ISN'T WHAT I

EXPECTED FOR MY LIFE.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS REMINISCENT OF THE

RAVINGS OF ADOLPH HITLER,

BUT IT WASN'T FROM DISTANT

PAST THAT WE HEAR IT.

IT WAS JUST RECENTLY IN

THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS.

THE SUPREME LEADER OF

IRAN, HE SAID ISRAEL WILL

BE GONE WITHIN 25 YEARS.

WHAT IS HE TALKING ABOUT?

AND THAT COMES AS

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS ABOUT

TO GET HIS NUCLEAR DEAL

BUT GUESS WHAT?

ONLY 25% OF THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE FAVOR IT.

75%, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER,

ARE SUSPICIOUS OF THAT

DEAL.

HE DOESN'T HAVE A MAJORITY

IN CONGRESS.

WHAT KIND OF A TREATY IS

HE ASKING FOR?

AND WHO ELSE IN THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS GOING

TO GO DOWN IN DEFEAT

BECAUSE THEY ARE

SUPPORTING THIS

MONSTEROUS, MONSTEROUS

GIVE-AWAY OF SOVEREIGNTY.

Wendy: REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

TOOK TO CAPITOL HILL TO

WARN THAT THE DEAL WOULD

BE CATASTROPHIC AND LEAD

TO MORE TERRORISM FROM

IRAN.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THE

STORY FROM THE WHITE

HOUSE.

Reporter: MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS ARE DEBATING WHAT

MANY CONSIDER THE MOST

IMPORTANT VOTE OF THEIR

CAREERS.

THE DEAL PRESIDENT OBAMA

STRUCK WITH IRAN TO CURB

ITS NUCLEAR PROGRAM HAS

ALSO SPREAD INTO THE 2016

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

NOBODY -- NOBODY IS

GOING TO MESS WITH US.

Reporter: IN A RARE

MOVE, TED CRUZ AND DONALD

TRUMP JOINED FORCES ON

CAPITOL HILL TO FIGHT THE

DEAL.

THIS IRANIAN NUCLEAR

DEAL IS CATASTROPHIC.

Reporter: THE DEAL

GIVES IRAN HUNDREDS OF

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND

RELIEF FROM ECONOMIC

SANCTIONS.

CRUZ SAYS LAWMAKERS WHO

SUPPORT IT WILL HAVE BLOOD

ON THEIR HANDS.

THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION WILL

BECOME, QUITE LITERALLY,

THE WORLD'S LEADING

FINANCIER OF RADICAL

ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

Reporter: IN HIS OWN

UNIQUE WAY, TRUMP KEPT HIS

REMARKS MORE GENERAL.

WE ARE LED BY VERY,

VERY STUPID PEOPLE.

VERY, VERY STUPID PEOPLE.

Reporter: HE AGREED

WITH CRUZ THAT THE NUCLEAR

DEAL SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED

FREEDOM FOR AMERICANS,

SUCH AS PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI, JAILED IN IRAN.

IF I WIN THE

PRESIDENCY, I GUARANTEE

YOU THAT THOSE FOUR

PRISONERS ARE BACK IN OUR

COUNTRY BEFORE I EVER TAKE

OFFICE.

Reporter: IRAN IS

BEATING ITS CHEST THIS

WEEK.

AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI

PREDICTING ISRAEL WILL

CEASE TO EXIST IN 25

YEARS, AND HE SAYS IRAN IS

DONE NEGOTIATING WITH THE

GREAT SATAN, THE UNITED

STATES.

THE BIG IRANIAN NATION

OUSTED THIS GREAT SATAN,

HE SAID.

IN A MAJOR VICTORY FOR

PRESIDENT OBAMA, MORE THAN

ENOUGH SENATORS HAVE

ANNOUNCED THEY'LL SUPPORT

THE DEAL.

STILL, OPPONENTS OF THE

PLAN HAVE LAUNCHED A MAJOR

LOBBYINLOBBYING CAMPAIGN THIS

WEEK IN HOPES OF CHANGING

MINDS.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF

AMERICANS ARE CONVINCED

THE DEAL IS BAD.

A NEW POLL JUST SHOWS 21%

APPROVE OF IT.

A DEAL IS WHEN YOU GET

SOMETHING IN RETURN.

WE GOT NOTHING IN RETURN.

THEY THINK THEY HAVE TO

MAKE SOMETHING AWFUL

HAPPEN TO BRING THE 12th

IMAM TO SAVE THE MUSLIM

WORLD.

A NUCLEAR BOMB WOULD BE A

GREAT WAY TO GET THAT

STARTED.

Reporter:

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

FROM BOTH PARTIES PROMISE

TO BE TOUGH ON IRAN.

WE SHOULD ANTICIPATE

THAT IRAN WILL TEST THE

NEXT PRESIDENT.

THEY WON'T WORK IF I'M IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Reporter: WHILE MANY

DEMOCRATS ARE LINING UP

WITH THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, SEVERAL

HIGH-PROFILE LAWMAKERS

LIKE CHUCK SCHUMER ARE

VOTING NO.

IF IRAN'S TRUE INTENT IS

TO GET A NUCLEAR WEAPON,

UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IT

MUST SIMPLY EXERCISE

PATIENCE, SHUMER SAYS.

IN AN INTERESTING TWIST,

THE SENATE IS OFF MONDAY

AND TUESDAY FOR ROSH

HASHANAH, THE JEWISH NEW

YEAR.

THE WORLD WILL BE WAITING

TO SEE IF THAT BREAK MAKES

AN IMPACT.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: IT IS

UNBELIEVABLE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

CAN YOU IMAGINE TO START A

WORLD WAR II, IF WE

DECIDED WE WANTED TO LEASE

SUPPLIES TO ADOLPH HITLER,

TO HELP IN HIS GENOCIDE

AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE?

CAN YOU IMAGINE?

THAT'S AT LEAST WHAT IS

HAPPENING HERE.

ABOUT $150 BILLION

SANCTIONED ASSETS ARE

BEING SET FREE.

THAT'S CASH MONEY INTO

THEIR HANDS.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

I WONDER WITH ROSH

HASHANAH COMING UP, DO YOU

SUPPOSE ISRAEL MIGHT

DECIDE THEIR SURVIVAL IS

AT STAKE?

THEY'VE BEEN WARNED BY THE

AYATOLLAHS THAT THEY'RE

GOING TO BE DESTROYED.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

IT IS UNMISTAKABLE THAT

IRAN DECIDES THEY WANT TO

DESTROY ISRAEL.

THEY HAVE HEZBOLLAH IN THE

NORTH -- IN LEBANON.

THEY HAVE HAMAS IN GAZA

AND OTHER PARTS.

THEY HAVE THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD AND THAT'S

PROBABLY ALONG THE WAY.

THEY HAVE TREMENDOUS

ASSETS.

THEY HAVE NUCLEAR DELIVERY

MECHANISMS THAT THEY HAVE

BEEN DEVELOPING.

AND ALL THEY LACK IS A

LITTLE BIT OF PLUTONIUM TO

FINISH OFF A BOMB.

AND THAT WON'T TAKE VERY

LONG TO DO.

IT JUST MAY BE THAT ISRAEL

IS GOING TO DO A

PREEMPTIVE STRIKE.

I WOULDN'T BLAME THEM.

IT IS TIME TO DO IT.

OBVIOUSLY OBAMA HAS GONE

AGAINST THEM.

WE USED TO BE THE FRIEND

OF ISRAEL, THE PROTECTOR

OF ISRAEL.

NOW WE HAVE A MAN WHO WAS

TRAINED AS A MUSLIM, WHO

IS AN ENEMY OF ISRAEL.

AND HE IS IN CHARGECH THE

UNITECHARGE OF THEUNITED STATES.

IT IS NOT THAT HE IS

STUPID.

HE HAS AN AGENDA THAT IS

CONTRARY TO WHAT WE USED

TO THINK OF AS, QUOTE,"THE

AMERICAN WAY."

AND, WELL, THAT'S JUST THE

WAY IT, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

BUT I WOULDN'T BLAME

ISRAEL ONE BIT IF THEY

DECIDED TO DEFEND

THEMSELVES WHILE THERE IS

STILL A CHANCE TO KNOCK

OUT SOME OF THOSE

CENTRIFUGES IN NATANCE, OR

SOME OTHER PLACE WHERE THE

IRANIANS HAVE HIDDEN THEM.

> IN OTHER NEWS, THE

BRUTAL KILLERS OF ISIS ARE

FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS

OF THE NAZIS, CARRYING OUT

A DEADLY GENOCIDE, THIS

TIME AGAINST CHRISTIANS.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

Efrem: PAT, AFTER THE

HOLOCAUST, THE WORLD SAID

NEVER AGAIN.

BUT A GROUP OF RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM FIGHTERS SAYS THE

WORLD IS INDEED LETTING

GENOCIDE HAPPEN AGAIN.

PAUL STRAND HAS THIS

REPORT ON THEIR CALL TO

FIGHT BACK.

Reporter: ISIS REALLY

IS WIPING OUT CHRISTIANS

IN ENTIRE REGIONS IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

FRANK WOLF HAS SEEN THE

EVIDENCE HIMSELF.

IN 2002 THERE WERE

2.5 MILLION CHRISTIANS IN

THE MIDDLE EAST, AND NOW

IT IS 300,000.

THE ALLIES ARE TIRED OF

WAR AFTER YEARS OF

FIGHTING IN IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE

KILLERS OF ISIS ARE GOING

TO GIVE THE CIVILIZED

WORLD A PASS.

EUROPEA NATO SIMPLY HASN'T

STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE ON

THIS.

THE RESULT: ALL OF THE

REFUGEES THAT ARE NOW

FLOODING INTO EUROPE.

Reporter: THE CHAIR

OF THE U.S. COMMISSION ON

INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM WANTS MILITARY

ACTION, BUT SAYS THE

BIGGER, LONGER FIGHT IS TO

WIN HEARTS AND MINDS AWAY

FROM THE IDEOLOGY OF ISIS.

WHAT IS IT THAT IS

ATTRACTING YOUNG PEOPLE

FROM WESTERN COUNTRIES,

YOUNG PEOPLE FROM

RELATIVELY FORTUNATE

CIRCUMSTANCES, TO JOIN A

GROUP THAT MOST OF US SAY

EMBODY PURE EVIL.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

COUNTRIES NEED TO SEE A

BETTER WAY.

WE HAVE TO WIN THE

BATTLE OF IDEAS.

THAT, IN OUR VIEW, REALLY

DOES REVOLVE AROUND

SOMEHOW EMBEDDING INTO

THESE SOCIETIES RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM AS A VALUE.

Reporter: PROFESSOR

STAM WANTS TO DURING THEM

BEFORE A CRIMINAL COURT

AND ACTUALLY PROSECUTE

THEM.

TAKE THEM DOWN

IDEOLOGICALLY.

BECAUSE THE REASON WHY

ISIS IS ATTRACTIVE TO

YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN AROUND

THE WORLD IS THE SAME

REASON COMMUNISM WAS.

IT IS A UTOPIAN

MILLENNIALIST IDEOLOGY.

Reporter: THE GROUP

OF DEFENSE OF CHRISTIANS

PUT THIS TOGETHER.

THEY ARE POSITIVE ISIS CAN

BE DEFEATED.

WE BELIEVE THIS CAN BE

STOPPED.

IT NEEDS ACTION MORE THAN

WORDS.

Reporter: PAUL

STRAND, CBN NEWS.

THE NATIONAL PRESS CLUB.

THE U.S. IS WARNING

RUSSIA TO BACK OFF IN

SYRIA.

THE CONCERN: RUSSIA'S

GROWING BUILDUP THERE

COULD LEAD TO MORE

VIOLENCE AND CHAOS IN THE

COUNTRY'S FOUR-YEAR-OLD

CIVIL WAR.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THAT

STORY.

Heather: ON

WEDNESDAY, SECRETARY OF

STATE JOHN KERRY CALLED

THE RUSSIAN FOREIGN

MINISTER FOR THE SECOND

TIME IN FIVE DAYS.

THE MESSAGE: U.S. CONCERN

OVER REPORTS OF RUSSIA'S

GROWING MILITARY BUILDUP

IN SYRIA.

ONE U.S. OFFICIAL TOLD THE

ASSOCIATED PRESS THAT THE

U.S. HAS SEEN THE RUSSIANS

FLY A VARIETY OF MILITARY

ASSETS INTO LATAKIA.

IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE

RUSSIANS ARE PLANNING SOME

SORT OF AIR OPERATION.

BUT RUSSIA SAYS THE WEST

HAS A, QUOTE,"STRANGE

HYSTERIA" OVER ITS

ACTIVITIES IN SYRIA.

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR

PUTIN HAS LONG SAID HIS

ARMS SALES TO SYRIA ARE

JUST PART OF INTERNATIONAL

EFFORTS TO COMBAT THE

ISLAMIC STATE.

THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE

SITUATION COMPLICATED.

BOTH MOSCOW AND WASHINGTON

OPPOSE ISIS, BUT THE U.S.

ALSO WANTS TO SEE NEW

LEADERSHIP IN SYRIA.

WHILE RUSSIA'S MILITARY

BUILDUP THERE COULD ALLOW

SYRIAN DICTATOR BASHAR

al-ASSAD TO CONTINUE

THIS LOCK ON POWER.

MEANWHILE, THE WORLD MUST

GRAPPLE WITH THE MASSIVE

EARNESTINE REFUGEE CRISIS,

WHERE MORE THAN FOUR

MILLION HAVE FLED IN JUST

THREE YEARS.

THE COUNTRY IS A

COLOSSAL TRAGEDY FOR SYRIA

AND A SHAMEFUL SYMBOL OF

INTERNATIONAL ALLEGIANCE.

HISTORY'S JUST WILL BE

HARSH.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S CRITICS HAVE

CALLED FOR A MORE FORCEFUL

MILITARY RESPONSE IN

SYRIA, AND ACCUSE HIM OF,

QUOTE,"LEADING FROM

BEHIND."

THE CURRENT CRISIS BEFORE

US IS NOT A MIGRANT ISSUE,

SAID SENATOR JOHN McCAIN

THIS WEEK.

IT IS A MASS EXODUS OF

REFUGEES WHO ARE FLEEING

CONFLICTS THAT THIS

ADMINISTRATION HAS REFUSED

TO ADDRESS FOR YEARS.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: PAT, YOUR

THOUGHTS ON THAT?

Pat: WELL, YOU WONDER

HOW LONG, YOU KNOW, WE

WRING OUR HANDS.

SENATOR McCAIN WRINGS

HIS HANDS.

THERE HAS TO BE A STRATEGY

THAT CAN BE REIN IN THE

PRESIDENT AND FORCE

ACTION.

BUT HE IS THE COMMANDER IN

CHIEF, AND WE PUT HIM IN

THERE.

THE UNITED STATES

ELECTORATE PUT THAT MAN IN

OFFICE.

AND HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT

HE IS DOING.

AND IF HE DOES, IT IS THE

WRONG THING THAT HE WANTS

TO DO.

BUT SOMETHING HAS GOT TO

BE DONE IN SYRIA.

IT IS AN OPEN SORE.

AND LET ME TELL YOU,

VLADIMIR PUTIN IS A GREAT

MAN AT BLUFFING.

HE DOESN'T HAVE MUCH

MONEY.

HE DOESN'T HAVE A VERY

STRONG ECONOMY.

HE DOESN'T HAVE A VERY

STRONG NATION.

A GREAT DEAL OF RUSSIA IS

THIRD-WORLD POVERTY

STRICKEN.

AND YET HE IS BLUFFING.

AND WE REFUSE TO CALL HIS

BLUFF.

IF WE PUT FORCE INTO THE

UKRAINE, WHICH WE HAVE NOT

ACTUALLY DONE, IF WE PUT

FORCES INTO THE BALTIC,

WHICH WE HAVEN'T DONE --

MAYBE A FEW AIRPLANES, BUT

WE HAVEN'T REALLY PUT

SERIOUS TROOPS INTO THAT

AREA -- IF WE PUT SUPPORT

INTO SYRIA, AND IF WE

HONEST TO GOODNESS BACK OF

KURDS AGAINST ISIS, WE

WOULD SEE THE WHOLE

SITUATION CHANGE.

AND IT WOULDN'T COST A

GREAT DEAL, BUT IT HAS TO

BE DONE.

EITHER WE'RE GOING TO, AS

A NATION, TAKE ON OUR ROLE

AS THE LEADING POWER OF

THE FREE WORLD, OR ELSE WE

WILL SURRENDER TO THE

FORCES OF CHAOS AND

ANARCHY AND TO

DICTATORSHIP, SUCH AS THE

RUSSIANS.

IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

WHICHEVER WAY IT IS.

BUT WE HAVE A PRESIDENT

WHO ABSOLUTELY REFUSES TO

ACT.

THEY MAKE UP ALL OF THIS

STUFF AND SAY, DON'T YOU

DARE GO INTO SYRIA.

AND THE RUSSIANS LAUGH AT

US BECAUSE WE REFUSE TO

TAKE ANY SERIOUS ACTION.

AND WE'RE SCARED OF THE

POLLS AND THE PR PROGRESSIVES

AND ALL THESE PEOPLE.

YOU SAY, WHAT IN THE WORLD

ARE WE LETTING HAPPEN?

WE WILL WAKE UP ONE DAY

AND GIVE TO OUR CHILDREN

AND A GRANDCHILDREN A MUCH

DIFFERENT WORLD THAN WHAT

WAS GIVEN TO US.

WE OWE IT TO THE FUTURE

GENERATIONS TO PRESERVE

FREEDOM.

IF WE DON'T DO IT, IT WILL

BE THE RESPONSIBILITY ON

OUR SHOULDERS AND WE'LL

HAVE TO PAY THE

CONSEQUENCES.

EFREM.

Efrem: PAT, KIM DAVIS

IS SET TO RETURN TO WORK

ON MONDAY.

SHE WAS RELEASED YESTERDAY

AFTER SPENDING FIVE DAYS

IN JAIL FOR REFUSING TO

ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES TO

SAME-SEX COUPLES.

SHE SAID SHE COULDN'T

BETRAY HER CHRISTIAN

FAITH, SINCE THOSE

LICENSES WOULD BE GRANTED

UNDER HER AUTHORITY.

THE JUDGE ORDERED DAVIS

NOT TO INTERFERE IN ANY

WAY WITH HER DEPUTY CLERKS

ISSUING MARRIAGE LICENSES

TO SAME-SEX COUPLES.

IT IS NOT CLEAR IF SHE

WILL COMPLY WITH THAT

ORDER.

HER ATTORNEY SAID,

QUOTE,"SHE WILL NOT

VIOLATE HER CONSCIENCE."

> CONGRESS HAS LAUNCHED

AN INVESTIGATION INTO

PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S ORGAN

HARVESTING SCANDAL.

IT COMES AFTER NUMEROUS

SHOCKING UNDERCOVER

VIDEOS.

IT SHOWS THE OFFICIALS AND

THEIR ALLIES TALKING ABOUT

PRICES FOR THE BODY PARTS

OF THE ABORTED BABIES.

THE GOAL IS TO PROTECT

TAXPAYERS FROM HAVING

THEIR MONEY MISUSED BY

PLENTY PLENTY.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS

GRANTED HUGE AMOUNTS OF

FEDERAL FUNDS, MAKING IT

OUR BUSINESS, AS MEMBERS

OF CONGRESS, CHARGED WITH

CONTROLLING FEDERAL PURSE

STRINGS, TO DO WHAT WE CAN

TO ENSURE FEDERAL TAXPAYER

DOLLARS ARE NOT

CONTRIBUTING TO THE SORTS

OF HORRORS REFLECTED IN

THE UNDERCOVER VIDEOS.

Efrem: WOOD Efrem: WITNESSES FROM

BOTH SIDES DISAGREED IF

PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS

BREAKING FEDERAL LAWS BY

PROFITING FROM THE SALE OF

THOSE BABY BODY PARTS.

AND DEMOCRATS DEFENDED THE

GROUP AND CALLED THE

HEARINGS ONE-SIDED.

BUT A REPUBLICAN

CONGRESSMAN ON ONE

COMMITTEE SAID,

QUOTE,"PLANNED PARENTHOOD

SUPPORTERS ARE TERRIFIED."

PAT?

Pat: THERE IS GOING

TO BE AN ELECTION, BUT IT

MAY BE TOO LATE.

THEY HAVE TO COME BEFORE

THE ELECTORATE AND SAY, WE

SUPPORTED OBAMACARE, WHICH

IS A DISASTER.

WE SUPPORTED THE NUCLEAR

DEAL WITH IRAN, WHICH IS A

DISASTER.

WE SUPPORTED PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, WHICH IS A

MONSTROSITY.

THAT IS GOING TO BE

LABELLED ACROSS THE

NATION, AGAINST EVERY AD.

I JUST WONDER.

YOU SAY, THERE MUST BE

SOME STRATEGIST SOME PLACE

IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY,

THERE MUST BE A STRATEGIST

SOME PLACE, WHO IS A

STREET FIGHTER, WHO KNOWS

HOW TO GO AFTER THESE GUYS

AND MAKE THEM PAY FOR WHAT

THEY ARE DIDING. DOING.

BUT RIGHT NOW OBAMA

CONTROLS THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT, SO THEY'RE NOT

GOING TO ACT ON THE

E-MAILS OF HILLARY

CLINTON.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE

ANY ACTION AGAINST THESE

PEOPLE.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE

ANY ACTION AGAINST ISIS.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DO

IT.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE

ANY ACTION AGAINST

VLADIMIR PUTIN AND WHAT HE

IS DOING.

THEY WON'T DO IT.

WE'RE GOING TO BE

HELPLESS, AND SITTING

THERE TWISTING IN THE

WIND, AND THE REPUBLICANS

ARE LOSING FACE WITH THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE BECAUSE

THERE IS NOT SOMEBODY

STRONG ENOUGH TO ACT.

AND YOU SAY, THERE HAS GOT

TO BE A LEADER SOME PLACE,

TO STAND UP, WHO HAS SOME

SMARTS, WHO KNOWS HOW TO

DO IN-FIGHTING AND WIN.

WENDY?

Wendy: AMEN.

> ALL RIGHT, COMING UP,

CHINA IS THE WORLD'S

LARGEST COMMUNIST NATION,

AND SOON IT WILL BE THE

WORLD'S LARGEST CHRISTIAN

NATION.

WE HAD A DREAM THAT

SOME DAY WE WOULD BUILD A

CHURCH FOCUSED ON PRAYER

FOR CHINA.

Wendy: WATCH HOW

THOSE DREAMS ARE COMING

TRUE 24 HOURS A DAY, AFTER

THIS.

Pat: THERE WERE CRIES

THAT ASCEND TO HEAVEN, 24

HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A

WEEK.

WHERE ARE THEY?

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

MEETING IN A CORNER OF

NORTHEAST CHINA FOR AN

UNPRECEDENTED PRAYER

MOVEMENT.

WHAT STARTED AS A SMALL

GATHERING SIX YEARS AGO

HAS BECOME A NATIONWIDE

PRAYER INITIATIVE,

BRINGING TOGETHER HUNDREDS

OF CHINESE CHURCHES.

TELEVISION CAMERAS HAVE

NEVER BEEN ALLOWED TO FILM

THE PRAYER SERVICE, BUT

OUR GEORGE THOMAS GOT

EXCLUSIVE ACCESS AND

BRINGS US THIS STORY FROM

THE HEART OF CHINA.

George: FOR YEARS THE

CHINESE GOVERNMENT TRIED

TO SNUFF OUT CHRISTIANITY.

IN THE LATE 1940s, SOME

500,000 CHINESE CHRISTIANS

WERE KILLED BECAUSE OF

THEIR FAITH.

NOW, DECADES LATER, IN

WHAT IS OFFICIALLY STILL

AN ATHEIST NATION,

CHRISTIANITY IS NOW THE

FASTEST GROWING RELIGION.

WE HAD A DREAM THAT

SOME DAY WE WOULD BUILD A

CHURCH FOCUSED ON PRAYER

FOR CHINA AND THE WORLD.

George: HA BINING AND

HER HUSBAND ARE WITNESSES

TO THIS PROFOUND MOVE OF

GOD ACROSS CHINA.

IN 2000, THE CHRISTIAN

COUPLE HAD A DREAM TO TURN

THIS PIECE OF LAND IN A

CORNER OF NORTHEAST CHINA

INTO A PLACE OF PRAYER.

MY TEARS FELL LIKE THE

RAIN AND I STARTED

PRAYING.

GOD GAVE US A VISION TO

HELP BRING CHURCHES ACROSS

CHINA TOGETHER FOR

NON-STOP PRAYER.

George: NINE YEARS

LATER, WITH CONSTRUCTION

ON THE PROPERTY ALMOST

COMPLETE, THE COUPLE SENT

OUT E-MAIL AND TEXT

MESSAGES TO FRIENDS AND

PASTORS, INVITING THEM FOR

A PRAYER MEETING.

WE DIDN'T KNOW WHO

WOULD SHOW UP OR HOW MANY.

I WAS PRAYING THAT PEOPLE

FROM AT LEAST SEVEN

CHURCHES WOULD SHOW UP.

TO MY ABSOLUTE AMAZEMENT,

70 CHURCHES JOINED US THAT

DAY.

George: THIS IS HOME

VIDEO OF THAT FIRST PRAYER

MEETING.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

WE WERE OVERWHELMED AT

THE RESPONSE.

IT WAS TOTALLY BEYOND OUR

EXPECTATIONS.

George: THE PRAYER

CENTER STARTED JUNE 2009.

SINCE THEN, 617 CHURCHES

FROM ACROSS CHINA HAVE

SIGNED UP TO PRAY 24 HOURS

A DAY.

WE HAVE THREE MAIN

OBJECTIVES: FIRST, THIS

WILL BE A PLACE WHERE

PEOPLE CAN MAKE PEACE WITH

EACH OTHER.

SECOND, THAT GOD WILL USE

THIS PLACE FOR CHURCHES TO

REPENT AND COMPROMISE WITH

EACH OTHER.

AND THIRD, THIS WILL BE A

PLACE WHERE PEOPLE CAN

MAKE PEACE WITH GOD.

George: CHRISTIANS

FROM MORE THAN 100

COUNTRIES HAVE ALSO

VISITED THE PRAYER CENTER.

EVERY DAY WE RECEIVE

GUESTS FROM AROUND THE

WORLD.

IT IS SO EXCITING TO SEE

PEOPLE PRAY.

George: THESE

INTERCESSORS KNOW GOD IS

DOING SOMETHING SPECIAL IN

CHINA.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

George: HA WHEN THE

COMMUNISTS TOOK POWER IN

THE 1940s, THERE WERE

ROUGHLY FOUR MILLION

CHRISTIANS IN CHINA.

TODAY OVER MORE THAN

100 MILLION ARE

CHRISTIANS.

IN LESS THAN TWO DECADES,

CHINA WILL BECOME THE

WORLD'S MOST POPULOUS

CHRISTIAN NATION.

IN RETURN, FENG KAI SAYS

GOD WILL USE CHINA TO BE A

PLEFBLESSING TO THE NATION.

GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, I

WILL BLESS YOU, I WILL

MAKE YOUR NAME GREAT AND

YOU WILL BE A BLESSING.

GOD BLESSED ABRAHAM.

HE IS BLESSING THE CHINESE

CHURCH.

George: KAI AND

OTHERS BELIEVE PRAYER

INITIATIVES LIKE THIS HAVE

BEEN KEY TO CHURCH GROWTH

IN CHINA.

24-HOUR, NON-STOP

PRAYING IS NOT AN EASY

TASK TO ACCOMPLISH, BUT IT

IS A HAPPY THING FOR US TO

DO, TO ENJOY 24 HOURS OF

GOD'S PRESENCE IN PRAY.

THROUGH PRAYERS, OUR

HEART IS BROADENED.

WE LEARN TO CARE FOR

OTHERS AND FOR THE WORLD.

PRAYERS INSPIRE US TO LOVE

EACH OTHER.

George: IN 2011, A

NEW SEMINARY AND CHRISTIAN

BUSINESS SCHOOL WERE

ESTABLISHED ON THE GROUNDS

OF THE PRAYER CENTER,

TRAINING THE NEXT

GENERATION OF PASTORS AND

BUSINESS LEADERS TO CHANGE

CHINA FOR JESUS CHRIST.

FOR HA BINING AND HER

HUSBAND, FENG KAI, THIS

PLACE IS A GO GOD-GIVEN DREAM

COME TRUE, TO BRING GOD'S

MESSAGE TO THE ENDS OF THE

EARTH.

THIS IS THE CORE OF.

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

WE ARE ALL ON OUR HANDS

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

AND KNEES PRAYING THAT THE

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

GOSPEL WILL SPREAD

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AND

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

ALSO HERE IN CHINA.

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

George: GEORGE

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, CHINA.

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

Pat: GOD HAS GOT HIS

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

HEART FOR CHINA.

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

AND THEY HAVE A DEVOTION

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

THAT PUTS US TO SHAME.

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THE MOST

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

THILTHRILLING THINGS IN THE

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

WORLD, TO SPEAK TO A

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

GROUP.

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

I PREACHED TO A CHURCH IN

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

BEIJING, AND THEY WERE

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

ESTATIC, AND I WAS

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

ESTATIC.

CHRISTIANITY.

CHRISTIANITY.

THE EXCITEMENT IN THAT

THE EXCITEMENT IN THAT

CONGREGATION -- THEY LOVE

JESUS AND IT IS WONDERFUL

TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING.

I DO BELIEVE THAT THE

LEADERSHIP IN CHINA HAS

BEGUN TO RECOGNIZE -- I

WAS CERTAINLY TELLING THEM

THAT THESE ARE GOOD

PEOPLE.

AND THEY'RE PEOPLE WHO

WILL SUPPORT THEM.

THEY NOT REVOLUTIONARIES.

THEY'RE NOT TRYING TO

OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT.

THEY'RE TRYING TO BUILD A

BETTER CHINA AND TO BUILD

A BETTER WORLD.

BUT, BOY, THEY LOVE JESUS.

I'M SO THRILLED AT WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

THE LARGEST CHRISTIAN

NATION ON THE FACE OF THE

EARTH IS CHINA.

100 MILLION I THINK IS TOO

LOW.

I THINK IT IS PROBABLY

150 MILLION CHRISTIANS.

IT IS HARD TO KNOW THE

NUMBERS, BUT IT IS REALLY

A HUGE, HUGE GROUP OF

PEOPLE WHO LOVE JESUS

CHRIST.

GEORGE DID A GREAT JOB.

WENDY, WHAT IS NEXT?

Wendy: COMING UP, HOW

TO LIVE LIKE BRAVE HEART,

WITHOUT PAINTING YOUR FACE

BLUE AND YELLOW.

BRENDA WALLACE SHARES HOW

TO FIND THE COURAGE TO

FOLLOW YOUR HEART, NEXT.

Pat: THERE HAVE BEEN

SOME GOOD MOVIES AND BAD

MOVIES.

TWO STAND OUT FOR ME.

ONE IS CALLED "BRAVE

HEART" AND THE OTHER IS

CALLED "RAINMAN."

THE HERO OF BRAVE HEART IS

A GUY NAMED WILLIAM

WALLACE, AND HE IS ON AN

EVEN SHORTER LIST OF

SCOTLAND'S GREATEST MEN.

HIS STORY CHANGED A

NATION, AND ALSO THE LIFE

OF THE MAN WHO WROTE THE

SCREENPLAY.

Reporter: THIS YEAR

MARKED THE 20th

ANNIVERSARY OF THE EPIC

MOVIE "BRAVE HEART."

SONS OF SCOTLAND, I AM

WILLIAM WALLACE.

Reporter: WHAT FANS

MAY NOT KNOW IS "BRAVE

HEART'S" WRITER, RANDALL

WILLIAM, GOT HIS IDEA

WHILE VACATIONING IN

SCOTLAND.

HE SHARES HOW THE MOVIE

HAS BEEN SHAPING HIS LIFE

AND CAREER FOR THE PAST 20

YEARS.

YOU HAVE COME TO FIGHT

A FREE MAN.

Reporter: AND HE

REVEALS THE REAL SOURCE

BEHIND THE STORY OF

SCOTLAND'S GREATEST HERO.

WHAT WILL YOU DO

WITHOUT FREEDOM?

Pat: RANDALL WALLACE

IS HERE.

IT IS CALLED "LIVING THE

BRAVE HEART LIFE," AND

FINDING THE COURAGE TO

FOLLOW YOUR HEART.

RANDALL, GOOD TO HAVE YOU

BACK.

GREAT TO BE HERE, PAT.

GREAT TO SEE YOU.

Pat: YOU WENT TO

SCOTLAND, AND YOU DIDN'T

EVEN KNOW WHO WILLIAM

WALLACE WAS.

WHAT DID THEY TELL YOU?

I SAW THE STATUE AND

ASKED WHO HE WAS.

AND A GUARD THERE AT THE

CASTLE SAID HE IS OUR

GREATEST HERO.

AND I THOUGHT HOW COULD

THIS BE, A MAN IS THE

GREATEST HERO OF SCOTLAND,

WHO SHARES MY NAME, IS

SOMEONE I NEVER KNEW.

WHEN I BEGAN TO ASK ABOUT

HIM, I SAW IN THIS A STORY

THAT I COULD LAST FOR THE

AGES.

Pat: WHAT DID YOU

WANT TO CALL IT INITIALLY?

YOU WERE KIND OF DOWN ON

YOUR LUCK, AND YOU WERE

HAVING SOME DIFFICULT

DAYS, AND YET YOU PURSUED

THIS PARTICULAR DREAM.

THIS STORY CALLED FOR

SOMETHING IN ME THAT I HAD

NEVER FOUND BEFORE.

IT CHALLENGED ME TO

QUESTION WHAT AM I REALLY

GOING TO LIVE MY LIFE FOR?

WHAT IS GOING TO BE GOD IN

MY LIFE.

THE FIRST COMMANDMENT,

THERE ARE NO OTHER GODS

BEFORE ME.

AND THE TURNING POINT IN

MY LIFE IS WHEN I WAS ON

MY KNEES ASKING GOD TO LET

ME WORSHIP NOT THE FALSE

IDOLS OF FAME OR MONEY OR

SUCCESS, BUT TO LIVE FOR

GOD AND TO FIGHT FOR THAT.

Pat: THE LORD GAVE

YOU THIS SCRIPT?

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU

TO GET IT TOGETHER?

10 YEARS BEFORE I HAD

THE COURAGE AND FELT I HAD

THE TOOLS.

I THINK IN THAT TIME, GOD

WAS GETTING ME READY TO BE

ABLE TO WRITE THAT STORY.

READY INSIDE ME, AND READY

FOR THE TOOLS I NEEDED AND

THE SKILLS I NEEDED.

Pat: THE PASSED THE

SCRIPT AROUND, AND USUALLY

AS A FIRST-TIME WRITER,

YOU GET A LOT OF

REJECTIONS.

PEOPLE WERE BIDDING TO TRY

TO GET IT.

THEY WENT CRAZY FOR IT.

WHAT HAPPENED?

IT HAPPENED VERY

QUICKLY.

I WROTE THE SCRIPT IN

ABOUT SIX MONTHS.

THE FIRST ACTOR WE SENT IT

TO, MEL GIBSON, WAS THE

FIRST TO SAY, YES, I WANT

IT.

Pat: SO MEL JUMPED ON

IT RIGHT AWAY?

YES, HE DID.

IT TOOK HIM A LONG TIME TO

SAY YES, BUT VERY QUICKLY

HE SAW IT WAS SOMETHING HE

WANTED TO DO.

Pat: IT WAS A

MARVELOUS MOVIE, BUT THERE

WAS SOME REAL BRUTALITY IN

THERE.

DID YOU WRITE ALL OF THAT,

OR DID SOMEBODY EDIT IT IN

ON TOP OF YOU?

WELL, I WROTE THE STORY

ABOUT WHAT REALLY

HAPPENED, THE WAY IT

WAS.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF

WILLIAM WALLACE IS PRETTY

MUCH HOW IT WAS.

I LIKE TO SAY, DON'T LET

THE FACTS, THE MINUTIAE,

GET IN THE WAY OF THE

TRUTH OF THE WAY THIS MAN

LIVED.

Pat: WAS A LOT OF IT

FOLK LEGEND OR WAS IT

REALLY TRUE HISTORY.

IT WAS LEGEND.

MOST OF IT WAS BASED ON

THE LEGENDS.

THERE AREN'T ANY

HISTORICAL SOURCES,

REALLY.

WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID THE

STORY OF WILLIAM WALLACE

LIVES ONLY IN LEGEND, BUT

THOSE LEGENDS HAVE

INSPIRED THE SCOTTISH

PEOPLE FOR CENTURIES.

THAT'S WHY I REALLY WANTED

TO LOOK AT WHAT THE STORY

HAS BEEN FOR ME.

WHAT IS THE LIFE THAT THIS

INSPIRED IN WILLIAM

WALLACE.

WHAT INSPIRED HIM?

WHAT INSPIRED ME?

AND HOW CAN WE, IN MODERN

TIMES, LIVE THE LIFE THAT

IS THE BRAVE HEART LIFE,

FOR BOTH WOMEN, AS WELL AS

MEN.

Pat: WHAT WAS THE

MESSAGE YOU BRING OUT OF

THAT.

HE DIED AND HE WAS

GRANTING FREEDOM -- IT WAS

AN INCREDIBLE MOVIE.

WHAT IS THE MESSAGE YOU

WANT TO BRING?

THAT YOU ONLY FIND YOUR

LIFE WHEN YOU FIND

SOMETHING THAT IS BIGGER

THAN YOUR LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT REALLY

HAPPENED WITH ME.

IT WAS THE SENSE THAT I AM

INSIGNIFICANT WITHOUT A

GREATER LIFE THAT TELLS ME

WHAT LIFE REALLY IS.

THAT'S WHY WHEN PEOPLE SAY

TO ME, DID YOU DO A LOT OF

RESEARCH TO WRITE BRAVE

HEART, I SAID, YEAH, I

READ THE NEW TESTAMENT.

Pat: THE BRAVEST

STORY OF ALL, AND HE IS

NAMED JESUS.

EXACTLY.

Pat: YOU DID "WE WERE

SOLDIERS," AND YOU DID

"SECRETARIAT."

AND MOST RECENTLY,

"HEAVEN IS FOR REAL,"

WHICH WAS A BIGGER MOVIE

THAN SPIDERMAN IN TERMS OF

THE MONEY IT MADE.

Pat: REALLY?

"HEAVEN IS FOR REAL"

WAS A HUGELY PROFITABLE

MOVIE, BUT BIGGER THAN THE

PROFITS IS WHAT IT DOES IN

YOUR LIFE AND WHAT IT DID

IN MY OWN LIFE.

Pat: HOLLYWOOD IS A

CUT-THROAT PLACE.

WE OWNED A MOVIE COMPANY,

AND IT'S A LOT OF GLITZ

AND GLAMOUR AND HYPE AND

ALL OF THE REST OF IT.

HOW DO YOU SURVIVE THAT?

OR DO YOU?

THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO

WRITE ABOUT IN THE BOOK.

PEOPLE ASK ME, HOW DO YOU

HOLD ON TO YOUR FAITH IN

HOLLYWOOD.

MY SENSE IS THAT I DON'T

HOLD ON.

THAT'S NOT FAITH.

I LET GO AND LET GOD TAKE

ME.

WHEN I WAS WRITING THIS

BOOK, I WAS THINKING, WHAT

ARE THE ELEMENTS THAT GIVE

YOU A BRAVE HEART LIFE?

WHAT I SAY IN THE BOOK IS

THAT YOU NEED A FATHER,

NOT NECESSARILY YOUR

BIOLOGICAL FATHER, BUT YOU

NEED A FATHER FIGURE.

WHEN DUKE UNIVERSITY WON

THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

THIS YEAR, THE CAPTAIN OF

THEIR TEAM SAID COACH KAY

HAS BECOME MY FATHER.

THAT'S NOT JUST THE WAY

YOU WIN IN LIFE.

IT IS THE WAY YOU HAVE A

LIFE WORTH LIVING.

SOMEONE HAS TO TEACH YOU,

AND HAVE YOU TO BE A

FATHER TO SOMEONE ELSE.

THAT'S PART OF THE BRAVE

HEART LIFE.

YOU NEED A TEACHER.

YOU NEED TO BE A WARRIOR.

YOU NEED TO FIND A HOLY

MAN IN YOUR LIFE.

IN SOME WAYS, YOU NEED TO

BE AN OUTLAW.

AND THAT'S WHAT I'VE

BECOME IN HOLLYWOOD.

IN SOME WAYS I'M AN

OUTLAW.

JESUS SAID, AS MUCH AS YOU

CAN, LIVE A LIFE WITHIN

THE WALL.

BUT WALKING AROUND THIS

MORNING AND LOOKING AT THE

GREAT PICTURES YOU HAVE

AROUND HERE, WASHINGTON,

JEFFERSON, MADISON --

THOSE MEN THREW OUT THE

OLD LAWS AND WROTE NEW

LAWS.

I THINK FOR A BRAVE HEART

LIFE, YOU HAVE TO BE

WILLING, IN SOME WAYS, TO

BE AN OUTLAW.

Pat: RANDALL WALLACE,

THIS BOOK IS CALLED

"LIVING THE BRAVE HEART

LIFE."

YOU WANT TO GET IT.

ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIES

THAT HAS EVER BEEN PUT

TOGETHER, AND HIS MAN IS

THE SCREENWRITER FOR THAT

AND THE PRODUCER AND SO

FORTH.

WHAT HAVE YOU GOT PLANNED

NEXT?

ANYTHING ON THE DRAWING

BOARD?

I'M WORKING ON A NEW

MOVIE ABOUT NAVY SEALS AND

THE MILITARY FIGHTING DOGS

THAT THEY USE.

Pat: REALLY?

YES.

AND THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO

SERVE OUR COUNTRY, OUR

TRUE BRAVE HEARTS.

THEY REALLY LIVE A BRAVE

HEART LIFE.

AND ALL OF US OWE HONOR

AND RESPECT TO THEM.

I LOVE TO TELL STORIES

ABOUT SUCH MEN AND WOMEN.

Pat: HAVE YOU KNOWN

ANY OF THEM?

ARE THESE PERSONAL

EXPERIENCES?

MANY PERSONAL

EXPERIENCE.

BEFORE I DID "WE WERE

SOLDIERS," I PERSONALLY

WENT TO RANGER SCHOOL.

I WENT FOR 12 DAYS.

IT WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST

ADVENTURES OF MY LIFE.

THEY MAY ARGUE WITH YOU

ABOUT POLITICS, ABOUT YOUR

FAITH, YOU MAY FIGHT OVER

GIRLS TOGETHER, BUT IN THE

END, THEY WOULD DIE BEFORE

THEY WOULD LEAVE YOU.

AND THAT KIND OF LOYALTY

AND FAITH IS THE KIND OF

THING THAT GIVES US A

BRAVE HEART LIFE, A LIFE

WORTH LIVING.

Pat: WELL, I KNOW

THIS IS GOING TO HELP A

LOT OF PEOPLE.

RANDALL WALLACE, "LIVING

THE BRAVE HEART LIFE."

THANK YOU FOR THE WORK YOU

DO.

I'M SO PROUD OF YOU.

THANK YOU, PAT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

VERY INSPIRING.

> UP NEXT, THE CHILD

STAR WHO HAD IT ALL AND

THEN LOST IT ALL.

THIS WASN'T WHAT I HAD

EXPECTED FOR MY LIFE.

I REMEMBER GOING UP TO THE

TOP OF THE HOTEL AND

LITERALLY IT WAS LIKE THE

THOUGHT TO JUMP.

Wendy: CAL MITCHELL

SHARES THE PRICE OF FAME,

NEXT.

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT APPEARS CHAPLAIN WES

MOTER IS NOT GOING TO BE

FORCED OUT OF THE NAVY FOR

HIS RELIGIOUS VIEWS.

THE INDEPENDENT MILITARY

TIMES REPORTS THAT HIS

COMMANDER HAD BEEN PUSHING

FOR HIS DISMISSAL, CITING

COMMENTS MADE IN

COUNSELLING SESSIONS.

TOP NAVY OFFICIALS

INVESTIGATED BUT FOUND

LIMITED EVIDENCE OF

MISCONDUCT.

THEY SAID THE EVIDENCE

DOESN'T MEET THE STANDARD

OF GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR

COMPLETE DISREGARD FOR

DUTY, WHICH IS IS NEEDED TO

KICK OUT AN OFFICER.

THE CALIFORNIA STATE

ASSEMBLY HAS APPROVED A

BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW

TERMINALLY ILL PATIENTS TO

LEGALLY END THEIR LIVES.

THE RIGHT TO DIE

LEGISLATION GOES TO THE

STATE SENATE WHERE IT IS

EXPECTED TO PASS.

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME

CALIFORNIA LAWMAKERS HAVE

TRIED TO PASS LEGISLATION

THAT WOULD ALLOW DOCTORS

TO PRESCRIBE LIFE-ENDING

DRUGS.

AN EARLIER MEASURE STALLED

BECAUSE OF RELIGIOUS

OPPOSITION.

AT LEAST TWO DOZEN STATES

HAVE INTRODUCED ASSISTED

SUICIDE BILLS THIS YEAR,

BUT ALL OF THEM HAVE

FAILED.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB".

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: AS A TEENAGER,

CAL MITCHELL HAD HIS OWN

SHOW ON NICKELODEON.

AS A RESULT OF THAT, HE

HAD A LOT OF MONEY, A NICE

HOUSE, AND A TON OF FAME.

ANYONE WHO HAS WATCHED THE

V.H.1 OPIC ON CHILD STARS

KNOWS CAL HAD TOO MUCH,

TOO SOON, AND IT HAD HIM

CONTEMPLATING SUICIDE.

I WOULD DEFINE FAME AS

A TRICK.

FAME IS SOMETHING THAT

WOULD BRING UP TO THINK I

DID THIS AND PEOPLE KNOW

WHO I AM.

AND IT SHOULDN'T BE ABOUT

YOU.

I STARTED GOING ON MANY

AUDITIONS, AND I GOT ON A

SHOW CALLED "ALL OF THAT."

WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW BIG THE

SHOW WAS GOING TO BE.

EVEN FOR THE PRODUCERS --

ALL OF US WERE, LIKE, WOW.

Reporter: AS A

SOPHOMORE IN HIGH SCHOOL,

CAL MITCHELL STARRED ON

THE NUMBER ONE SHOW ON THE

NICKELODEON CHANNEL.

SOON HE HAD A SPINOFF SHOW

AND A MAJOR MOTION

PICTURE.

I HAD A HOUSE AND

HANGING OUT ON MY OWN.

I STARTED COLLEGE, I GOT

THE SHOW ON THE AIR.

PRETTY MUCH I COULD DO

WHAT I WANTED.

A LOT OF TIMES IN THE

ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS,

THEY GLORIFY SEX AND

DRUGS, AND IT'S GLORIFIED

LIKE CRAZY.

Reporter: FAME WAS

GOOD TO CAL MITCHELL.

HE HAD HIS CHOICE OF

WOMEN.

WHILE HE STARTED GETTING

SERIOUS WITH ONE GIRL, THE

LURE OF FAME WAS TOO MUCH

TO HANDLE.

I GOT DRUNK, RIGHT.

AND I GOT HIGH, FOR, LIKE,

THE FIRST TIME.

WE STARTED GOING THROUGH

THE YELLOW PAGES.

AND WE WERE, LIKE, LET'S

JUST CALL SOME CALL GIRLS

JUST FOR FUN.

I ENDED UP HAVING SEX WITH

ONE OF THE GIRLS.

Reporter: CAL FILT

GUILTFELTGUILTY AND CALLED HIS

GIRLFRIEND TO APOLOGIZE

AND CONFESS.

BUT SHE HAD A CONFESSION

OF HER OWN.

I TOLD HER WHAT

HAPPENED, AND SHE TOLD ME

SHE WAS PREGNANT WITH MY

BABY.

I FLIPPED OUT, TO BE YOUNG

AND IN COLLEGE AND ON A

TELEVISION SHOW, AND THEN

YOU HAVE SOMEONE PREGNANT

AT THIS POINT AND YOU'RE

ON A KIDS' SHOW.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I

STARTED DEALING WITH

SUICIDAL EMOTIONS.

SHE SAID, LITERALLY, LET'S

GET AN ABORTION.

AND I AGREED AS WELL, TO

GET THE ABORTION.

IT WAS BOTH OF OUR

DECISIONS.

SHE SAID THAT, YOU KNOW,

THAT ABORTION THAT WE HAD

WAS ACTUALLY FROM ANOTHER

MAN.

IT WASN'T YOURS.

SO AT THAT MOMENT, IT WAS

JUST, LIKE, OKAY, NOW I'M

MARRIED TO THIS PERSON,

AND LITERALLY THROUGH THAT

MARRIAGE WE WENT THROUGH A

LOT.

IT WAS LITERALLY, LIKE,

OKAY, WE WENT INTO IT WITH

ALL OF THESE LIES AND

DECEPTIONS AND HURT AND

PAIN.

DO YOU REALLY LOVE THIS

PERSON?

DOES THIS PERSON LOVE YOU?

DID YOU TAKE THE TIME TO

EVEN FIND OUT WHO THAT

WAS?

Reporter: CAL DECIDED

TO STAY WITH HIS WIFE.

THEY HAD TO KIDS TOGETHER,

BUT CAL'S WIFE CONTINUED

TO BE UNFAITHFUL.

AND THEN CAL'S SHOW GOT

CANCELLED.

AT THIS POINT, THE SHOW

ENDED.

I STARTED TO TAKE OTHER

ROLES, BUT IT STARTED TO

BASICALLY HAVE AN UP AND

DOWN EFFECT, AS FAR AS

CAREER-WISE.

I WAS MORE UPSET AT

MYSELF.

IT WASN'T, LIKE, CAL

MITCHELL, THE ACTOR, AND

THIS, THAT, AND THE OTHER.

IT WAS LIKE CAL MITCHELL,

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOUR

LIFE?

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE.

I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT

TO DO.

IT WAS A LOT OF PRESSURE.

HE BASICALLY TOLD ME

THAT, LOOK, MAN, SHE IS

PREGNANT.

WE'RE TIRED OF THIS.

I WANT TO BE WITH HER.

AND THIS IS WHAT IS GOING

ON.

I REMEMBER GOING UP TO THE

TOP OF THE HOTEL AND,

LITERALLY, I THOUGHT TO

JUMP BECAUSE OF THE FACT I

WANTED TO PRESS AN OFF

SWITCH.

I FELT LIKE THERE NEEDED

TO BE AN OFF SWITCH.

THIS WASN'T WHAT I

EXPECTED FOR MY LIFE.

I LITERALLY WANTED IT TO

END AT THAT POINT.

Reporter: CAL DECIDED

TO DIVORCE HIS WIFE AND A

CUSTODY BATTLE BEGAN.

THEY SAID, LOOK, WE'RE

GOING TO FREEZE

VISITATION.

THERE WON'T BE ANYMORE

UNTIL YOU GUYS FIGURE THIS

OUT.

THE HURTFUL PART ABOUT IT

IT WAS SHE WAS ALLOWING MY

KIDS TO GO TO THIS STOP

WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO PICK

THEM UP, WITHOUT LETTING

THEM KNOW THAT VISITATION

HAD STOPPED AT THAT POINT.

SO TO THEM, IT WAS DADDY

IS NOT SHOWING UP.

I WENT THROUGH A STATE OF

TOTAL DEPRESSION.

I ENDED UP SEEING MYSELF

AT A ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT

IN A NEIGHBORHOOD THAT I

WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN IN

BEFORE.

I DIDN'T HAVE A CAR.

I LOST SO MUCH MONEY WITH

THE COURT AND CHILD

SUPPORT AND SO MUCH TO THE

POINT WHERE IT WAS JUST A

LITTLE BIT OF MONEY IN THE

BANK ACCOUNT.

I REMEMBER THE ELECTRICITY

WENT OUT AND I JUST CRIED.

IT WAS LIKE EVERYTHING WAS

TAKEN AWAY.

Reporter: WITH NO

MONEY, NO FAMILY, AND NO

FRIENDS, CAL MET A

MINISTER WHO SHOWED HIM

THERE WAS MORE TO LIFE

THAN FAME.

THE ONLY PERSON I COULD

TURN TO AT THAT POINT WAS

CHRIST.

I STARTED TO GO TO THIS

CHURCH.

AND THINGS STARTED TO

CHANGE IN MY LIFE.

I SAID, OKAY, THAT'S IT.

I'M GIVING UP DRINKING.

I FORGAVE MY EX-WIFE AND I

LET GO OF THE ANGER.

WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL ABOUT

ALL OF THIS, TOO, AS THIS

WAS GOING ON, I DEVELOPED

A FRIENDSHIP WITH MY NOW

WIFE.

I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER

LOVE AGAIN, YOU KNOW, AT

ALL.

I LOVED AGAIN, AND MY LIFE

IS BEAUTIFUL.

I'M HAPPY.

Reporter: TODAY CAL

IS MARRIED.

HE STILL MAKES MOVIES AND

STARS IN TV SHOWS.

HE TALKS TO TEENAGERS

ABOUT THE VALUE OF

ABSTINENCE AND HAS A

MESSAGE FOR THOSE PURSUING

FAME.

I FEEL LIKE SO MANY

CELEBRITIES WILL JUST SHOW

YOU WHO THEY ARE ON STAGE.

WE GO THROUGH A LOT.

I FELT IF TEENS AND KIDS

AND FANS ACTUALLY KNEW

THAT, THEY CAN GO, YOU

KNOW WHAT, I CAN GET WHAT

I'M GOING THROUGH.

ME COMING FROM CHICAGO AND

BEING ON TELEVISION WAS

BECAUSE OF THE GRACE OF

GOD.

THERE WAS NO PURPOSE TO

LIVE.

BUT NOW THERE IS SO MUCH

PURPOSE FOR LIFE.

THERE IS SO MUCH THAT

NEEDS TO BE DONE IN THE

BODY OF CHRIST, AND I'M

GLAD TO BE A PART OF IT.

Wendy: WHAT IF CAL

HAD ENDED IT ALL BACK WHEN

HE DIDN'T SEE A WAY OUT?

THE GOOD NEWS IS, WITH GOD

THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT,

AND IT IS A GLORIOUS WAY.

BUT YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT

CAL DID.

HE HUMBLED HIMSELF.

HE SAID, GOD, I CAN'T DO

THIS.

I CAN'T FIX MY LIFE.

IT'S A MESS.

I NEED YOU.

HE INVITED JESUS TO COME

INTO HIS LIFE AND GOD

CHANGED EVERYTHING.

HE WANTED TO COMMIT

SUICIDE.

HE TOOK THE WORST THINGS

THAT HAPPENED AND MADE HIS

LIFE BEAUTIFUL.

HE FOUND LOVE AGAIN.

GOD HELP CAL FORGIVE AN EX

WHO WAS CHEATING ON HIM,

NOT ONCE, BUT HABITUALLY.

GOD CAN HELP YOU FORGIVE A

PARENT WHO ABUSED YOU OR

AN EX OR A CO-WORKER.

AND GOD WANTS TO DO THAT

FOR YOU TODAY.

AND THE OTHER THING THAT

CAL LEARNED, TOO, IS THAT

NO AMOUNT OF FAME, NO

AMOUNT OF FORTUNE, NO

AMOUNT OF RELATIONSHIPS

COULD FILL THAT PLACE THAT

ONLY JESUS DESIGNED IN YOU

TO FILL.

BECAUSE GOD IS A JEALOUS

GOD.

HE LOVES YOU.

HE MADE YOU IN HIS IMAGE.

AND ONLY HE CAN FILL THAT

PLACE THAT YOUR LONGING TO

FILL WITH OTHER THINGS

RIGHT NOW.

WELL, IF YOU'RE TIRED OF

TRYING TO FIX IT YOURSELF,

AND IF YOU'RE IN A PLACE

MAYBE EVEN WHERE CAL WAS,

IT IS NOT TOO LATE.

THIS IS THE TIME.

THIS IS THE TIME RIGHT

NOW.

GOD CAN TURN IT ALL AROUND

TODAY.

YOU CAN START NEW TODAY.

ALL HAVE YOU TO DO IS SAY

YES.

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

LORD JESUS, I AM TIRED.

I CANNOT FIX MY LIFE.

I DON'T WANT TO TRY TO FIX

IT ANYMORE.

I NEED YOU.

I KNOW THERE IS A BETTER

WAY.

AND I AM READY.

SO I JUST INVITE YOU INTO

MY HEART RIGHT NOW.

AND I ASK YOU TO BE THE

LORD AND SAVIOR OF MY

LIFE.

FIX EVERYTHING THAT IS

MESSED UP RIGHT NOW.

AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY,

TBIGIVE ME THAT PEACE OF

KNOWING I'M GOING TO SEE

YOU ONE DAY.

THAT I HAVE A FUTURE AND A

HOPE.

AND, LORD, I JUST REPENT.

I CONFESS MY SINS.

I KNOW I'M A SINNER AND I

NEED A SAVIOR.

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

WELL, IF YOU HAVE JUST

PRAYED THAT PRAYER, YOU

HAVE JUST BEGUN A NEW

CHAPTER IN YOUR LIFE.

GOD IS ABOUT TO BLOW YOUR

MIND AND SHOW YOU THAT HE

HAS BEEN WAITING FOR YOU

TO DO THAT.

IF YOU'VE DONE THAT, WE

HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR

YOU.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND YOU CAN ALSO CALL AND

PRAY WITH SOME OF OUR

COUNSELLORS.

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S THE NUMBER TO CALL.

AND JUST ASK FOR "A NEW

DAY" THIS IS OUR GIFT TO

YOU WHEN YOU CALL RIGHT

NOW.

PAT?

Pat: THANKS, WENDY.

STILL AHEAD, ANOTHER ROUND

OF "BRING IT ON."

LINDA SAYS, "I DON'T TRUST

MY FAMILY.

I THINK THEY'RE INTO

WITCHCRAFT.

SHOULD I MOVE FAR AWAY

FROM THEM?"

WELL, THAT QUESTION AND

MORE, WHEN WE "BRING IT "BRING IT

ON."

WER Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

WE HAVE PAT IN THE HOT

SEAT.

IT IS TIME FOR YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

LINDA WRITES, "WHAT DO YOU

DO IF YOU SUSPECT FAMILY

MEMBERS AND NEIGHBORS ARE

INTO WITCHCRAFT.

I FEEL LIKE MOVING FAR

AWAY.

I DON'T TRUST THEM

ANYMORE."

Pat: LINDA, I DON'T

KNOW IF YOU UNDERSTAND

WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

OR NOT.

IF REALLY THERE IS

WITCHCRAFT, YOU DON'T WANT

TO BE PART OF IT.

YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE

BREATHING CURSES ON YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO MOVE,

THAT'S YOUR BUSINESS.

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE PART

OF A FAMILY THAT IS INTO

THAT.

YOU CAN PRAY.

YOU CAN BIND THE SPIRIT.

BUT IT'S ONE OF YOU

AGAINST MANY OF THEM.

SO YOU NEED SOME PRAYER

PARTNERS IN THIS ONE.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY,

GETTING OUT OF THE

SITUATION ISN'T THE WORST

THING.

Wendy: RICHARD SAYS,

"I KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF

PAYING TITHES AND GIVING

YOUR FIRST FRUITS, BUT I

ALWAYS SEEM TO FAIL IN

THIS AREA.

I KNOW THAT IF I FIRST

SPEND MONEY ON MYSELF ON

THE THINGS I NEED AND WANT

AND THEN TITHE, IT IS AN

IMPERFECT OFFERING.

HOW DO I GET BETTER AT

THAT?"

Pat: A WOMAN ONCE

ASKED REVEREND SUNDAY, HOW

CAN I STOP EXAGGERATING,

AND HE LOOKED AT HER AND

SAID, CALL IT LYING.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT YOU DO

WITH THIS, YOU CALL IT

STEALING.

THE TITHE BELONGS TO THE

LORD AND YOU'RE STEALING

HIS MONEY.

HOW DO I STOP?

YOU SAY, DO YOU WANT TO BE

CAUGHT STEALING FROM GOD?

HE'S GOT A LONG ARM.

HE'LL GET IT BACK.

IF YOU WANT TO STEAL FROM

SOMEBODY, DON'T STEAL FROM

GOD.

Wendy: THAT'S GOOD.

CATHY SAYS, "WHAT CAN

YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE

RAPTURE AND WHY SOME

CHURCHES DON'T BELIEVE IN

IT."

Pat: IT DEPENDS ON

WHAT YOU CALL THE RAPTURE.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN JESUS

COMES BACK AGAIN, WE'LL BE

CAUGHT UP TO BE WITH HIM

IN THE AIR.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN HE

COMES BACK, HE WILL SEND

HIS ANGELS TO GATHER HIS

ELECT FROM THE FOUR

CORNERS OF THE EARTH.

AND THEY WILL BE WITH HIM

FOREVER.

THIS IS THE RAPTURE.

THE WORD "RAPTURE" IS FROM

THE LATIN "RAPIO," WHICH

MEANS I SNATCH, AND IT IS

THE SNATCHING OR CATCHING

UP WITH THE BELIEVERS.

MOST CHRISTIANS BELIEVE IN

THAT.

BUT THERE ARE SOME WHO

THINK, OKAY, THERE IS

GOING TO BE A RAPTURE AND

A SECRET RAPTURE, AND

SEVEN YEARS LATER THERE IS

GOING TO BE THE REAL

THING.

THAT'S WHERE THE CONFUSION

COMES.

THERE ARE LOTS OF CHURCHES

THAT DON'T BELIEVE THEM,

AND I'M ONE OF THEM.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT

SECRET CATCHING UP SHUT.

I BELIEVE WHEN THE LORD

COMES, IT WILL BE A SHOUT

OF COMMAND AND THE DEAD IN

CHRIST SHALL RISE.

THAT'S WHEN THE LORD COMES

BACK AGAIN.

I BELIEVE THAT'S THE

RAPTURE.

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

DON'T BELIEVE IN THE

SECRET THING.

YOU SAY, WHY DO SOME

PEOPLE NOT BELIEVE IN IT?

BECAUSE IT IS NOT IN THE

BIBLE.

Wendy: MYRTLE SAYS,

"RECENTLY I'VE BEEN ASKED

TO BE AN ELDER IN MY

CHURCH, BUT MY CHURCH IS

SET TO PERFORM SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE IS ASKED TO.

I WOULD LIKE YOUR OPINION

OF WHETHER I SHOULD

DECLINE THIS POSITION

BEFORE ELDER TRAINING

BEGINS IN TWO WEEKS OR

LEAVE MY CHURCH."

Pat: YOU CAN'T AGREE

TO THAT STUFF.

I THINK IT IS TIME YOU

WALK.

YOU DON'T WANT TO BE AN

ELDER, A LEADER IN A

CHURCH THAT BELIEVES THAT

WAY.

THEIR VIEWS ARE CONTRARY

TO WHAT YOU FEEL IS THE

IMPORTANCE OF THE BIBLE.

YOU OUGHT TO FIND SOME

PLACE WHERE IT IS

COMPATIBLE WITH YOU.

THAT'S ALL.

SO THE ANSWER IS DON'T

BECOME AN ELDER AND GET

OUT OF THERE.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.

WELL, BRITTANY SAYS, "I

HAVE BEEN TALKING TO MY

PASTOR ABOUT GETTING

BAPTIZED.

I KNOW THIS IS A BIG STEP

IN ANY CHRISTIAN'S

JOURNEY, AND MOST INVITE

LOVED ONES TO BE THERE.

MY MOM MOSTLY VIEWS ALL

CHRISTIANS TO BE

HYPOCRITES.

SHE IS MY MOM AND I LOVE

HER DEARLY, BUT I DON'T

WANT HER TO THINK OF MY

DIFFERENTLY.

PART OF ME WANTS TO INVITE

HER, BUT THE SECOND PART

DOESN'T WANT THE

DISAGREEMENT.

WHAT T DO I DO?"

Pat: , A BAPTISM CAN BE

A QUIET THING.

YOU DON'T NEED TO HAVE A

BIG SERMON WITH A LOT OF

PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE.

WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS GET

BAPTIZED AND BE OBEDIENT

TO THE LORD.

SO WHETHER YOUR MOTHER

COMES OR DOESN'T COME, IT

DOESN'T MATTER.

IF THEY WANT TO BE PART OF

IT IN THE CHURCH, GOOD FOR

THEM.

IF THAT'S A PROBLEM, DON'T

WORRY ABOUT IT.

Wendy: IF SHE MAKES

PLEASING HER MOM MORE

IMPORTANT THAN PLEASING

THE LORD --

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR WATCHING

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."
