In Shay’s quest for excitement, she ended up on a dark path that led to addiction and exotic dancing. Also, NFL running back Rashad Jennings shares his strategy for life. Read Transcript


Wendy: THESE ARE

SEPARATED CONJOINED TWINS.

AND NOW COMES THE HARD

PART.

WE'LL TALK TO DR. BEN

CARSON ABOUT HIS RUN FOR

THE WHITE HOUSE.

PLUS...SHE DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT SHE SIGNED UP FOR.

TO GET UP ON THE STAGE

BUTT NAKED IN FRONT OF

COMPLETE STRANGERS, YOU

FEEL DEVALUED.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN SHE LEFT THE

STAGE.

I REMEMBER THINK, OH,

MY GOD, I'M GOING TO DIE.

*

Gordon Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN; MAN,

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS

GOT SOME PARTIES, BUT

MAYBE THEY DON'T.

MAYBE THEY'RE GOING TO GET

THE RIGHT SPEAKER THEY'RE

SUPPOSED TO GET, AND KEVIN

McCARTHY SAID, NO, I'M

NOT THE GUY, BUT HE IS

STILL THE MAJORITY LEADER.

BUT BOEHNER IS STILL IN

PLACE.

AND IT MAY BE JUST AS WELL

BECAUSE BOEHNER WON'T LET

THEM SHUT THE GOVERNMENT

DOWN.

BUT THE QUESTION IS: WHY

NO NOW?

AS THEY SEARCH FOR A NEW

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, THEY

SAY THEY MAY WANT PAUL

RYAN, BUT PAUL RYAN MAY

WANT THE WAYS AND MEANS

COMMITTEE.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT.

HE DOESN'T WANT THE JOB.

Pat: AND I DON'T

BLAME HIM.

Terry: HE HAS BEEN A

LEADER TO CUT GOVERNMENT

SPENDING, AND HE RAN FOR

VICE PRESIDENT WITH MITT

ROMNEY IN 2012, BUT IF HE

DOESN'T TAKE THE POSITION,

THEN THIS RACE IS WIDE

OPEN.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: HOUSE

REPUBLICANS ARE ASKING,

WHO NOW?

AFTER KEVIN McCARTHY

ANNOUNCED HE WOULD NOT

SEEK THE POST.

I THINK I SHOCKED SOME

OF YOU.

BUT THE ONE THING I FOUND

IN TALKING TO EVERYBODY,

IF WE'RE GOING TO UNITE

AND BE STRONG, WE NEED A

NEW FACE TO HELP DO THAT.

Reporter: THE

DECISION CAME AFTER A

CLOSED-DOOR MEETING WITH

THE SAME CONSERVATIVES WHO

WOULD CHALLENGE HIM ON THE

HOUSE FLOOR AS SPEAKER.

IT ALSO CAME AFTER A

LETTER FROM WALTER JONES,

CALLING FOR THE NEXT

SPEAKER TO BE ABOVE

REPROACH IN HIS OR HER

PERSONAL LIFE.

I KNOW WHAT CAN HAPPEN

TO A PARTY WHEN YOU DON'T

DEMAND HONESTY AND

INTEGRITY WITH FOR

LEADERSHIP.

Reporter: DANIEL WEB

WEBSTER AND JASON CHAFFETZ

SAY THEY WERE BOTH SHOCKED

BY McCARTHY'S

WITHDRAWAL.

THE HOUSE SPEAKERSHIP CAN

BE A GRUELING, OFTEN

THANKLESS JOB, SOMETHING

AKIN TO HERDING CATS.

AND MANY OF THE G.O.P.'S

BRIGHTEST STARS DO NOT

WANT THE JOB.

SOME ARE EVEN THROWING OUT

THE NAME OF FORMER SPEAKER

NEWT GINGRICH, WHO IS NOT

NOW A MEMBER OF CONGRESS.

BUT THE McCARTHY

WITHDRAWAL MEANS JOHN

BOEHNER WILL HAVE TO STAY

ON FOR NOW AS SPEAKER.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, THE TRUTH

IS THAT THERE ARE MANY

PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE WHO

THINK THAT, LOOK, LET'S

PASS THE BUDGET RESOLUTION

WE WANT TO PASS.

SEND IT TO THE PRESIDENT.

IF HE VETOES IT, THEN IT

WILL BE HIS RESPONSIBILITY

TO SHUT THE GOVERNMENT

DOWN.

AND THAT'S THE WAY IT

WORKS.

BUT PEOPLE WILL SOMEHOW

SAY, WELL, CONGRESS SHUT

IT DOWN.

NO, CONGRESS DIDN'T.

THE PRESIDENT DID.

BUT THEY'RE GOING TO GET

THE BLAME.

GOING INTO THE

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, IT

WILL BE THROWN IN THEIR

FACE, YOU SHUT THE

GOVERNMENT DOWN AND YOU

DON'T CARE ABOUT THE

LITTLE PEOPLE.

JOHN BOEHNER SAID, NO, I'M

NOT GOING TO SHUT THE

GOVERNMENT DOWN.

SO MAYBE IF HE STAYS ON AS

SPEAKER THROUGH THIS

BUDGET FIGHT AND THIS

QUESTION OF REAUTHORIZING

THE DEBT, IT WILL BE

BETTER FOR THE

REPUBLICANS.

THEN THEY CAN FIGHT IT OUT

FOR JANUARY OR SOMETHING.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A

SPEAKER RIGHT NOW.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

> IN OTHER NEWS, A

RISING TIDE OF BRUTAL

ATTACKS AGAINST ISRAELIS

HAS BEEN ESCALATING FOR

WEEKS.

AND TODAY TWO MORE

STABBINGS, A 14-YEAR-OLD

ISRAELI AND A POLICE

OFFICER.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BREWER BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

John: IN JUST TWO

DAYS, PALESTINIANS CARRIED

OUT MULTIPLE STABBING

ATTACKS IN JERUSALEM AND

OTHER CITIES IN ISRAEL AND

THE DISPUTED TERRITORIES,

INCLUDINCLUDING TWO NEAR

JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY.

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU WARNED THE

FLAMES OF RADICAL ISLAM

BURNING THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST ARE ALSO

REACHING ISRAEL.

Through Translator:

WE'RE IN THE MIDST OF A

WAVE OF TERRORISM,

TERRORISTS THAT HAVE BEEN

INCITED, AND WHO ARE

DRIVEN WITH HATE ARE

TRYING TO ATTACK OUR

PEOPLE, BABIES, CHILDREN,

MEN AND WOMEN, CIVILIANS

AND SOLDIERS.

Efrem: NETANYAHU

BLAMES HAMAS, THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY, AND

SPECIFICALLY THE ISLAMIC

MOVEMENT IN ISRAEL FOR,

QUOTE,"IGNITING THE GROUND

WITH LIES REGARDING

ISRAELI POLICY AND THE

TEMPLE MOUNT."

NATO IS TALKING TOUGH

ABOUT RUSSIA'S EXPANDING

MILITARY ACTIVITY IN

SYRIA, BUT SO FAR IT IS

STILL ONLY TALKING.

THE MAIN RESPONSE TO

RUSSIA'S AIRSTRIKES AND

CRUISE MISSILE ATTACKS IS

A PROMISE TO HELP

REINFORCE THE MILITARY

DEFENSES OF TURKEY, WHICH

IS A MEMBER OF NATO AND

SHARES A BORDER WITH

SYRIA.

OVER THE WEEKEND, TURKEY

REPORTED THAT RUSSIAN WAR

PLANES HAD VIOLATED ITS

AIR SPACE.

THE CURRENT MEETING OF

NATO MEMBERS IN BRUSSELS

HAVE BEEN OVERSHADOWED

ABOUT CONCERNS OF RUSSIA'S

MILITARY INVOLVEMENT IN

SYRIA.

THEY SAY THE RUSSIAN

ESCALATION RAISES,

QUOTE,"SERIOUS CONCERNS."

Pat: THE AMAZING

THING IS WE HAVE A

PRESIDENT, A SECRETARY OF

STATE, AND A SECRETARY OF

DEFENSE, AND IT SEEMS

THERE IS NO POLICY -- WE

HAVE NO POLICY WHATEVE WHATSOEVER

TO COUNTER PUTIN.

WE SAY, HE IS GETTING INTO

A QUAGMIRE, SURE, BUT HE

WILL ALSO CONTROL THE OIL

OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

WE HAVE NO POLICY, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

THERE IS NO POLICY.

OUR COUNTRY IS ADRIFT.

AND NOW NATO SAYS WE'RE

GOING TO VIEW, WITH GREAT

ALARM, WHAT THE SOVIETS

ARE DOING.

YEAH, SURE.

VIEW WITH ALARM?

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO?

WELL, WE'VE GOT TO BEEF UP

SOME TROOPS.

WE VOLUNTARILY WITHDRAW

SOME MISSILES THAT THEY

AGREED TO THE POSITION IN

SOME OF THE COUNTRIES

BUTTING RUSSIA.

WE DON'T HAVE THOSE

ANYMORE.

WE COULD HAVE, BUT WE

DON'T.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?

WELL, WE DON'T HAVE A

POLICY.

ONE MORE TIME: THERE IS NO

POLICY.

AND IT IS SAD TO SEE.

AND ALL WE HAVE IS EMPTY

RHETORIC.

THERE IS SOMETHING

INTERESTING IN THE NEWS.

RUSSIA WAS OUT IN THE

CASPIAN SEA WITH SOME OF

ITS NAVAL FORCES, AND THEY

WERE LAUNCHING CRUISE

MISSILES ACROSS IRAN, ALL

THE WAY TO SYRIA.

BUT SOME OF THOSE MISSILES

FELL IN IRAN BECAUSE THEY

WEREN'T AIMED PROPERLY.

THEY RAN OUT OF GAS, OR

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THEM.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE IRONS

HAVE SCREAMED.

SO FAR WE HAVEN'T HEARD

ANY PRO TESTS.

JOHN?

John: HERE AT HOME,

ALL EYES ARE ON SOUTH

CAROLINA'S LOW COUNTRY.

RUNOFF IS NOW HEADED OUT

TO SEA, AND THAT COULD

WREAK EVEN MORE HAVOC ON

AREAS ALREADY HEAVILY

SATURATED FROM DAYS OF

NON-STOP RAIN.

SOME 250 ROADS AND 100

BRIDGESES DAMAGED AND

CLOSED, MAKING IT

DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE TO

GET THE HELP THEY NEED.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS IN

CRANE CREEK, A RURAL AREA

FACING THIS VERY

CHALLENGE.

THIS IS A COMMUNITY

THAT CAN'T GET TO A

GROCERY STORE FOR ABOUT 40

MINUTES OR FURTHER BECAUSE

THERE ARE SO MANY ROADS

THAT HAVE BEEN WASHED OUT

AND BRIDGES THAT HAVE BEEN

COMPRCOMPROMISED OR ARE

COMPLETELY OFF THE GRID.

ONE LADY LOOKED AT ME, AND

SHE GOES, I LIVE FIVE

MINUTES AWAY FROM HERE AND

IT TOOK ME 40 MINUTES TO

DRIVE HERE.

John: GOVERNOR NIKKI

HALEY WARNS THAT THE AREAS

COULD REMAIN FLOODED FOR

TWO WEEKS.

IT IS A SITUATION THAT

GOES FROM BAD TO WORSE.

Pat: IT'S A SAD

THING.

BUT WE'RE NOT STANDING

HERE.

WE'RE GOING TO HELP.

WE JUST SENT FOUR MORE

TRUCKLOADS WITH MORE FOOD

COMING ON THE WAY, LOADED

WITH FOOD AND WATER FOR

THOSE HARD-HIT PEOPLE.

WE HAVE A MOBILE KITCHEN

DOWN THERE SERVING 1300

HOT MEALS, ESPECIALLY THE

RESPONDERS WHO ARE DOWN

THEIR HELPING.

WE'RE GOT SCORES OF

VOLUNTEERS TO GUT HOMES

AND HELP RESIDENTS SALVAGE

THEIR BELONGINGS.

AND WE CARE.

WE CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE

IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

AND IF YOU WANT TO HELP US

HELP THEM, YOU JUST PICK

UP THE PHONE AND CALL IN.

AND IT'S CBN DISASTER

RELIEF OR "OPERATION

BLESSING" DISASTER RELIEF.

AND WE'RE GOING TO RUSH

AID AS FAST AS WE CAN DOWN

TO SOUTH CAROLINA.

THOSE ARE WONDERFUL

PEOPLE.

AND THEY DIDN'T DO

ANYTHING.

IT WASN'T LIA THEIR FAULT.

THESE THINGS HAPPEN.

NATURAL DISASTERS HAPPEN.

I WAS DOWN THERE AFTER A

THING CALLED HUGO, AND WE

DID A SHOW IN THE MIDDLE

OF DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON.

I SAW ONE ROOF THAT HAD

BEEN CRUMBLED UP LIKE A

PIECE OF PAPER.

THOSE PEOPLE LOST SO MUCH.

AND THEY SUFFERED.

THIS IS A TOUGH, TOUGH

AREA, BUT THEY'RE

WONDERFUL, RESILIENT

PEOPLE.

AND WE WANT TO HELP THEM.

SO WE ARE, AND WE WILL

CONTINUE DO DO SO.

TO DO SO.

WE WANT YOU TO HELP US

HELP THEM.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT,

UNDERSTANDING THE

CONSTITUTION IS NOT BRAIN

SURGERY, BUT IT IS

CRITICAL TO THE HEALTH OF

OUR COUNTRY.

DR. BEN CARSON BREAKS IT

DOWN FOR US WHEN WE COME

BACK.

*

Pat: WELL, HE IS AN

UNLIKELY PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE, A SOFT-SPOKEN

PHYSICIAN, WHO HAS NEVER

HELD POLITICAL OFFICE, BUT

HAS GREAT DISTINCTION.

HE HAS OVER 50 HONORARY

DEGREES FOR HIS WORK.

HE REMAINS AT THE FRONT OF

THE PACK IN A VERY CROWDED

REPUBLICAN FIELD.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: DR. BEN

CARSON'S WELL-DOCUMENTED

LIFE'S JOURNEY BEGAN IN

DETROIT, AS DEPICTED IN

THE MOVIE AND THE BOOK

"GIFTED HANDS."

HE WAS RAISED IN POVERTY

BY A SINGLE MOM WHO TAUGHT

HIM THAT THROUGH FAITH IN

JESUS CHRIST AND HARD

WORK, ANYTHING WAS

POSSIBLE.

YOUNG BEN OVER CAME

DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES TO

BECOME A WORLD REKNOWED

NEUROSURGEON.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN TRULY

AMAZING.

I THINK ABOUT IT ALL OF

THE TIME.

Reporter: WHEN HE

RETIRED FROM MEDICINE AND

BEGAN SPEAKING OUT ON

IMPORTANT ISSUES FACING

OUR COUNTRY, HE ADMIRERS

AND SUPPORTERS URGED HIM

TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

CARSON SAYS HE WANTS TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

AND HE SAYS MAKING A

DIFFERENCE STARTS WITH

UNDERSTANDING THE

CONSTITUTION.

THAT'S THE SUBJECT OF HIS

LATEST BOOK, "A MORE

PERFECT UNION, WHAT WE,

THE PEOPLE, CAN DO TO

RECLAIM OR CONSTITUTIONAL

LIBERTIES."

Pat: WELL, LISTEN,

DR. CARSON WAS FOR MANY

YEARS A TRUSTEE AT REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

HE IS A DEAR FRIEND OF

MINE.

IT IS A DELIGHT TO SEE

YOU.

DID YOU EVER THINK YOU

WOULD DO AS WELL AS YOU

ARE?

YOU ARE LEADING SOME OF

THE POLLS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

IT IS VERY GRATIFYING

TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING.

IT REALLY INDICATES THAT

THE PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO

THINK FOR THEMSELVES.

THEY'RE NOT JUST LISTENING

TO THE PUNDITS OR THE

MEDIA'S PORTRAYAL OF

PEOPLE.

I THINK THAT IS GOING TO

BE THE SALVATION OF OUR

NATION.

Pat: YOU'VE WRITTEN

THIS BOOK CALLED "A MORE

PERFECT UNION," AND THE

PRESIDENT, WE HAD A REPORT

TODAY, THAT HE WAS

THINKING OF UNILATERAL

ACTION ON GUN CONTROL,

THAT HE WOULD NOT WAIT FOR

CONGRESS.

HE WAS GOING TO DO WHAT HE

WANTED TO DO BY EXECUTIVE

ORDER.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF ALL

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

THAT HAVE BEEN FLOODING

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

THE AIRWAVES RECENTLY?

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

WELL, CLEARLY THE

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

CONSTITUTION TALKS ABOUT

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

THE SEPARATION OF POWERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

AND THE CHECKS AND BALANCE

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

SYSTEM.

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

AND WHAT HAS HAPPENED

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

RECENTLY IS THAT THE

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

LEGISLATIVE BRANCH HAS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

BEEN ACTING MORE LIKE THE

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

PEANUT GALLERY, JUST

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

SITTING BACK AND WATCHING

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

WHAT THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

AND THE JUDICIAL BRANCH

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

DO, WHICH I THINK IS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

LEADING TO THEIR

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OVERREACH.

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

I'M HOPEFUL THAT THE

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

PRESIDENT'S DECLARATION

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

OF THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS

ABOUT GUN CONTROL WILL

ABOUT GUN CONTROL WILL

INSPIRE THE LEGISLATIVE

BRANCH TO STAND UP WITH A

BACKBONE AND TO DO

SOMETHING, AND TO

RECOGNIZE THE CONSTITUTION

TELLS YOU WHAT THE REASONS

FOR THESE EXECUTIVE

ACTIONS ARE: WHEN CONGRESS

IS OUT OF SESSION, OR WHEN

IT IS INCONVENIENT FOR

THEM TO BE ABLE TO DO

SOMETHING, AND SOMETHING

NEEDS TO BE DONE IN A

RELATIVELY SHORT PERIOD OF

TIME.

THAT CAN BE A TEMPORARY

MEASURE UNTIL CONGRESS CAN

MAKE A MORE DEFINITIVE

RULING.

BUT TRADITION HAS CHANGED

THAT, AND WE NEED TO

REESTABLISH THE CORRECT

ORDER.

Pat: PUTIN JUST MOVED

INTO SYRIA.

HE HAS TANKS IN THERE AND

TROOPS IN THERE.

AND HE IS SHOOTING CRUISE

MISSILES IN FROM THE

CRIMEAN AREA.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO, IF YOU

WERE PRESIDENT, WITH

SYRIA?

YOU HAVE TO RECOGNIZE

THAT PUTIN HAS

EXPANSIONIST IDEAS.

THE ONLY THING THAT IS

REALLY STOPPING HIM, QUITE

FRANKLY, IS MONEY RIGHT

NOW.

THE PRICE OF OIL HAS

DROPPED TREMENDOUSLY,

WHICH HAS HAMMERED HIM

SEVERELY.

NOW, YOU KNOW, HE IS

LOOKING TO EXTEND HIS

INFLUENCE THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST.

I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT

HE WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO

GET CONTROL OF A LOT OF

THE ENERGY RESOURCES IN

THAT AREA SO THAT HE CAN

CONTROL PRICING AND BRING

HIMSELF BACK UP WHERE HE

WANTS TO BE.

HE HAS LONG-STANDING

RELATIONSHIPS DOWN THERE.

YOU KNOW, MAHMOUD ABBAS OF

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

AND AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI,

WERE CLASSMATES, WHERE

THEY BECAME ACQUAINTED

WITH A YOUNG VLADIMIR

PUTIN.

SO THESE ARE DEEP TIES.

YOU CAN SEE THAT IRAN IS

SUPPORTING THE ASSAD

REGIME, ALONG WITH PUTIN,

AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH WHAT RUSSIA SAID THEY

WERE COMING IN THERE TO

DO, TO FIGHT ISIS.

INSTEAD, WHO ARE THEY

FIGHTING?

AL NUal-NUSRA.

AND WE NEED TO OPPOSE

THEM, AND NOT LISTEN TO

THEIR GENERAL WHO SAYS YOU

CAN'T FLY HERE.

WE CAN FLY ANYWHERE WE

WANT.

I WOULD ESTABLISH WITH

TURKEY A NO-FLY ZONE ALONG

THE TURKISH BORDER.

I WOULD CHALLENGE HIM IN

THE WHOLE BASIN AREA.

WE HAVE A FEW ARMORED

BRIGADES THROUGHOUT THAT

REGION OF THE WORLD.

WE NEED TO HAVE A MUCH

MORE ROBUST PROGRAM.

WE NEED TO HAVE MISSILE

DEFENSE SYSTEMS.

WE NEED TO ARM THE

UKRAINIANS BECAUSE THEY

GOT RID OF THEIR NUCLEAR

WEAPONS BECAUSE WE SAID WE

WOULD PROTECT THEM, AND WE

HAVEN'T DONE IT.

AND WE NEED TO USE OUR

ENERGY RESOURCES TO PUT

HIM FURTHER INTO THE BOX.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THIS

GUN THING.

YOU'VE BEEN HAVING A

DISCUSSION ABOUT GUNS AND

WHAT HAPPENED WITH THAT

COLLEGE OUT IN THE WEST.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH

THIS GUN CONTROL?

WHAT IS THEIR ULTIMATE

GOAL, DO YOU THINK?

I'M AN EXTREMELY

REASONABLE PERSON, AS YOU

KNOW.

AND I WOULD SAY, I'M

WILLING TO LISTEN TO

WHATEVER IDEAS THE GUN

CONTROL ADVOCATES HAVE, AS

LONG AS THEY DON'T

COMPROMISE THE SECOND

AMENDMENT.

YOU CANNOT COMPROMISE THE

SECOND AMENDMENT.

DANIEL WEBSTER HAD IT

RIGHT WHEN HE SAID AMERICA

WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE

TYRANNY AS LONG AS THE

PEOPLE ARE ARMED.

Pat: YOU THOUGHT

MAYBE IN GERMANY THE NAZIS

HAD DISARMED THEIR PEOPLE

BEFORE THEY BEGAN THEIR

RAMPAGE AGAINST THE JEWS.

IS THAT RIGHT?

THAT'S VERY CLEAR, THAT

SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE THEY

BEGAN THEIR TYRANNICAL

REIGN, THEY SYSTEMATICALLY

DISARM THE POPULOUS.

THE SAME THING HAS

HAPPENED IN OTHER PLACE,

BEFORE TYRANNY BEGAN TO

REIGN.

WE NEED TO LOOK AT THESE

THINGS.

WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND

HISTORY AND NOT ALLOW IT.

BECAUSE IT IS FREQUENTLY

DONE IN THE NAME OF

SOMETHING GOOD AND

PLEASANT.

AND EVERYBODY SAYS, WOW,

APPLE PIE AND MOMMY.

BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS THERE ARE SINISTER

NOTIONS BEHIND IT, AND WE

CAN NEVER ALLOW THAT TO

HAPPEN IN THIS COUNTRY.

Pat: PRESIDENT CARSON

RAISES HIS HAND AND PLACES

ONE HAND ON THE BIBLE AND

SAYS, I'M GOING TO UPHOLD

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE

UNITED STATES, AND NOW

YOU'RE PRESIDENT.

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING

YOU WOULD DO?

THE FIRST THING I WOULD

DO IS CALL FOR A JOINT

SESSION OF CONGRESS AND

HELP PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND

THAT WE'RE AMERICANS.

WE'RE NOT DEMOCRATS OR

REPUBLICANS FIRST.

WE'RE AMERICANS FIRST.

AND WE, IN THE GOVERNMENT,

WORK FOR THE PEOPLE; THEY

DON'T WORK FOR US.

AND ALL OF THE POLICIES OF

A CARSON ADMINISTRATION

ARE GOING TO BE AIMED AS

RESTORING THE PEOPLE TO

THE PINNACLE, AND PUTTING

THE GOVERNMENT IN THE

CORRECT PLACE, WHICH IS TO

FACILITATE LIFE, LIBERTY,

AND THE PURSUIT OF

HAPPINESS FOR THE PEOPLE.

BUT I'M ALSO GOING TO BE

VERY CONCERNED ABOUT OUR

STANDING IN THE WORLD.

OUR MILITARY HAS BEEN

SEVERELY WEAKENED.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

CHANGE THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

START LOOKING AT THE

DANGERS THAT FACE US.

WE HAVE A GRID THAT IS

ARCHAIC.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

HARDEN THAT GRID WITH A

PRIVATE-PUBLIC

RELATIONSHIP.

LOOK AT ALL OF THE THINGS

THAT CAME OUT OF THE SPACE

PROGRAM.

YOU'RE CELL PHONE.

IN THE FUTURE, HE WHO

CONTROLS SPACE WILL

CONTROL OTHERS.

WE CANNOT ALLOW OTHERS TO

GAIN DOMINANCE THERE.

Pat: YOUR BOOK IS

CALLED "A MORE PERFECT

UNION."

WE WISH YOU THE BEST.

THIS IS AN EXCITING

CAMPAIGN.

I'LL TELL YOU, YOU

SURPRISED EVERYBODY.

[LAUGHTER]

WELL, A LOT OF PEOPLE

DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT

THERE ARE OTHER FORCES

INVOLVED THAT MAYBE THEY

CAN'T RELATE TO.

Pat: WELL, YOU

CERTAINLY RELATE TO A LOT

OF THEM.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THIS BOOK, "A MORE PERFECT

UNION," DR. CARSON, VERY

INSIGHTFUL AND VERY

INTELLIGENT.

A BRILLIANT NEUROSURGEON

WHO I'M THRILLED TO CALL A

FRIEND.

DR. CARSON, WE LOVE YOU.

IT IS GOOD TO SEE YOU,

EVEN IF IT IS ON

TELEVISION.

Pat: YOU COME BACK.

WE HAD A LOT OF FUN

TOGETHER.

YOU AND YOUR DEAR WIFE.

ALL RIGHT.

TAKE CARE NOW.

Pat: TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

YOUNG WOMAN RECEIVES AN

OFFER SHE CAN'T REFUSE.

AND I TALKED TO THE

LADY AND I'M, LIKE, OH,

YES, I CAN DO THIS FOR

ABOUT $300 OR $400 A

NIGHT.

Terry: THAT CAME AT A

HUGE PRICE.

SEE HOW IT ALMOST COST HER

EVERYTHING, AFTER THIS.

Pat: I READ

YESTERDAY -- I DON'T KNOW

WHAT I WAS READING, I READ

SO MUCH STUFF -- BUT IT

SAID THAT THE YOUNG PEOPLE

OF AMERICA ARE EXPOSED TO

SEXUAL ACTIVITY TODAY THAT

WOULD HAVE SHOCKED THE

MOST AGGRESSIVE MOGUL

EMPEROR OF YEARS GONE BY.

AND THESE KIDS SEE IT ALL

IN ONE AFTERNOON.

WHAT IS BEING SHOWN IN OUR

MOVIES, WHAT IS BEING

SHOWN ON THE INTERNET, THE

AMOUNT OF PORNOGRAPHY, IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

AND, OF COURSE, THEY SAID,

WELL, THAT'S FREE SPEECH,

AND BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO PROTECT

OURSELVES.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THERE

ARE SOME INTERESTING

PEOPLE WHO ARE IN WHAT IS

CALLED THE SEX INDUSTRY.

AND ONE OF THEM IS SHAY

NIELSEN.

AND SHAY LIKED THE FEELING

OF BEING A BAD GIRL.

SHSHE SAID SHE WAS INVOLVED

IN SOME OF THE WILDEST

SEXUAL ESCAPADES YOU CAN

IMAGINE.

AND THEN MONEY LURED HER

INTO BECOMING AN ACTUAL

FULL-TIME WORKER IN THE

SEX INDUSTRY.

SHE BECAME A SO-CALLED

STRIPPER.

IT SEEMED TO BE GLAMOROUS,

BUT, NO, IT WASN'T

GLAMOROUS AT ALL AND LIFE

WASN'T SO MUCH FUN ANYMORE

FOR SHAY.

I REMEMBER THE FIRST

NIGHT I WENT TO THE CLUB,

AND THEY GAVE US AN

APPLICATION.

AND I WAS LIKE, WHAT ARE

THE PREREQUISITES FOR

BEING A STRIPPER?

Reporter: WHEN SHAY

NIELSEN STEPPED ON TO THE

STRIP CLUB STAGE, SHE HAD

COME A LONG WAY FROM THE

SHELTERED LIFE SHE KNEW AS

A YOUNG GIRL.

I WAS RAISED BY MY MOM

AND MY STEPFATHER.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS A

PASTOR.

GROWING UP WITH A

GRANDFATHER THAT WAS A

PASTOR SET THE TONE IN MY

FAMILY FOR PEACE AND LOVE

AND ACCOUNTABILITY.

Reporter: SHE WAS

ALWAYS KNOWN AS THE QUIET,

GOOD GIRL.

BUT WHEN SHE STARTED A NEW

SCHOOL IN HER LATE TEENS,

SHE WAS DRAWN IN BY THE

LIFESTYLES OF GANG-BANGERS

AND DRUG DEALERS.

PACKAGED DRUGS, OOH, I

FELT LIKE A BAD GIRL.

I LIKED THE FEELING OF NOT

BEING THE OBEDIENT CHILD

AND NOT DOING WHAT I HAVE

TO DO ALL OF THE TIME.

Reporter: WHEN SHE

FINISHED SCHOOL AND MOVED

OUT, SHE WAS READY TO

EMBRACE A LIFE WITH SOME

RESTRICTIONS.

DURING THE DAY, SHE WORKED

AS A BODY PIERCER.

AND AT NIGHT SHE WAS

DRINKING, PARTYING, AND

POPPING ECSTASY PILLS.

DRUGS HELPED ME TO OPEN

UP.

I WAS ALWAYS A SHY PERSON,

RESERVED, INSECURE, AND

ALWAYS FELT A LITTLE

UNWORTHY.

BUT DRUGS MADE ME FEEL

LIKE I CAN.

YOU KNOW?

THEY MADE ME FEEL LIKE

SUPERWOMAN.

Reporter: HER

ADDICTION CAUSED HER TO

MISS WORK OFTEN AND

EVENTUALLY SHE WAS FIRED.

A FRIEND TOLD HER SHE

COULD MAKE GOOD MONEY

STRIPPING.

*

EVEN GOING IN WAS,

LIKE, NOW YOU'RE IN A

DIFFERENT PART OF MY MIND,

AND OPENING A DIFFERENT

PART OF THE WORLD I'D

NEVER SEEN.

I TALKED TO THE LADY AND

I'M, LIKE, HOW MUCH MONEY

CAN THEY MAKE.

AND I'M, LIKE, I CAN DO

THIS, ABOUT $300 OR $400 A

NIGHT.

Reporter: BUT

STRIPPING WASN'T AS

GLAMOROUS AS SHE EXPECTED.

TO GET ON THE STAGE,

BUTT-NAKED, IN FRONT OF

COMPLETE STRANGERS IT

TAKES YOU TO A PLACE OF

BEING DEVALUED.

I COULDN'T BE SOBER.

BECAUSE I COULD HEAR THE

VOICE IN MY HEAD SAYING,

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

YOU ARE WORTH MUCH MORE

THAN THIS.

I ASKED ONE OF THE GIRLS,

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO MAKE

MYSELF NOT SO SHY TO GET

ON THE STAGE.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, TRY

COCAINE.

ONCE COCAINE CAME INTO

PLAY, IT WAS COCAINE ALL

NIGHT, SLEEP ALL DAY.

GET UP AND DO IT AGAIN.

Reporter: AT 22 SHAY

GOT PREGNANT.

THE THOUGHT OF HAVING A

CHILD GAVE HER HOPE.

SO SHE QUIT USING DRUGS,

DRINKING AND DANCING.

BUT 34 WEEKS INTO HER

PREGNANCY, SHE LOST THE

BABY AND SANK INTO

TO NUMB THE PAIN, SHE

BINGED ON COCAINE FOR

THREE DAYS WITH FRIENDS.

I REMEMBER THINKING,

OH, MY GOD, I'M GOING TO

DIE.

MY MOM AND MY SISTER ARE

GOING TO COME FIND ME AND

ALL THEY'RE GOING TO

REMEMBER IS A STRIPPER

THAT WAS ON DRUGS.

Reporter: SHE DROVE

HERSELF TO THE EMERGENCY

ROOM TO GET HELP.

I CALLED ON THE ONLY

PERSON I KNOW WHO COULD

SAVE ME.

GOD, IF YOU'RE REAL --

THAT WAS MY PRAYER -- IF

YOU'RE REAL AND YOU'RE

THERE, AND IF YOU'RE

LISTENING, IF YOU KEEP ME

ALIVE, DON'T LET ME DIE, I

ALIVE, DON'T LET ME DIE, I

WILL NEVER TOUCH COCAINE

AGAIN.

I KEPT MY WORD.

THE GRACE OF GOD ALLOWED

ME TO WALK OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL.

Reporter: SOBERED UP,

SHAY THAT TIME TO THINK

ABOUT HER LIFE.

I'VE BEEN A STRIPPER,

I'VE BEEN ON DRUGS, I'VE

BEEN A PARTY GIRL.

I'M BIGGER INVOLVED IN

SOME OF THE WILDEST SEXUAL

ESCAPADES YOU CAN IMAGINE.

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO NOW?

I HEARD THIS STILL VOICE.

AND I'M LIKE, I GUESS I

CAN GO TO CHURCH.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

EVER SERMON FELT LIKE A

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM GOD

TO HER.

ONE SUNDAY HE SAID, WE

NEED TO PRAY AND ASK GOD

TO REVEAL OUR OWN HEARTS

TO OURSELVES.

I PRAYED THAT PRAY, GOD,

REVEAL MY HEART TO ME.

EVERYTHING I HAD DONE IN

MY LIFE, THE MIRROR WAS

TURNED ON ME, AND I

THOUGHT OF GOD, AND IT

HURT ME.

THEN I ASKED JESUS TO COME

INTO MY HEART AND TO

FORGIVE ME FOR ALL OF THE

WRONG AND THE SINS I

COMMITTED.

HE HEALED EVERY WOUND I

HAD.

I FELT ACCEPTED AND LOVED.

IT MADE ME FEEL COMPLETE.

Reporter: SHAY IS

STILL DRUG-FREE.

TODAY SHE IS MARRIED TO

COLTER AND RAISING THEIR

TWO DAUGHTERS.

AND SHE IS ALSO A WRITER.

SHE SHARES HER STORY IN

HER BOOK "MY MESS BECAME

MY MESSAGE."

I LOOK IN THE MOOR MIRROR AND I

SEE THE PERSON JESUS

REDEEMED.

I SAY SHAY THE WIFE, SHAY

THE MOTHER.

JESUS TURNED MY LIFE

TOTALLY AROUND FROM THE

INSIDE OUT.

THERE IS HOPE FOR US ALL.

GOD IS RIGHT HERE.

HE IS WAITING TO GIVE US

HIS LOVE, TO COME IN AND

SHOW US.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS BE

SERIOUS AND SAY, JESUS,

SHOW ME WHO YOU ARE.

Pat: JESUS TOLD A

STORY ABOUT A YOUNG MAN

WHO WANTED TO GET THE

MONEY DUE HIM FROM HIS

FATHER.

AND HE GOT HIS I INHERITANCE

AND HE WENT TO A DISTANT

LAND.

AND HE SAID HE WASTED HIS

SUBSTANCE IN RIOTOUS

LIVING.

HE PAID FOR PROSTITUTES.

IF THEY HAD DRUGS, HE TOOK

DRUGS.

IF THERE WERE BANQUETS, HE

HAD SUMPTUOUS FEASTS.

THERE WAS WINE, WOMEN, AND

SONG.

HE LIVED IT UP TO THE

FULLEST, AND HE WASTED ALL

OF HIS MONEY.

AND THEN HE WAS BROKE.

AND THEN THERE WAS A

FAMINE IN THE LAND.

AND THE BEST HE COULD DO

WAS GET A JOB FEEDING

PIGS.

AND HE WAS OUT WITH THE

HOGS, AND HE WAS SO

HUNGRY, HE WOULD HAVE

EATEN THE CAROB HUSKS THAT

THE PIGS WERE EATING.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE CAME TO

HIMSELF.

HE CAME TO HIMSELF, AND HE

SAID, HOW MANY SERVANTS OF

MY FATHER HAVE BREAD

ENOUGH TO SPARE, AND HERE

I AM PERISHING FROM

HUNGER.

HE SAID, I'LL ARISE AND GO

TO MY FATHER AND TELL HIM,

I'M NOT WORTHY TO BE HIS

SON, I'M NOT WORTHY OF

ANYTHING, JUST MAKE ME A

HIRED SERVANT.

JUST PUT ME ON THE PAYROLL

AS ONE OF YOUR DRIVERS.

JUST GET ME SOME WORK.

AND SO HE WENT TO HIS

FATHER.

THE ONLY EXAMPLE WE HAVE

OF GOD RUNNING, BECAUSE HE

WAS THE FATHER.

A LONG WAY OFF THE FATHER

SAW HIM, AND HE RAN TO HIM

AND HE THREW HIS ARMS

AROUND HIM.

AND HE CALLED HIS

SERVANTS, LOOK, GET A ROBE

AND PUT IT ON HIM.

GET SANDALS FOR HIS FEET.

PUT A RING ON HIS FINGER.

KILL THE FATED CALF, LET'S

HAVE A PARTY, MY SON IS

ALIVE AGAIN.

THAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF GOD.

SO SHAY WAS OUT THERE

STRIPPING AND PARTYING AND

DOING COCAINE, AND DURING

EVERYTHING SHE COULD

POSSIBLY DO, AND HERE SHE

IS THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF A

PREACHER.

FINALLY SHE COMES TO HEF.

AND WHAT DOES GOD SAY?

GOD OPENED THE DOOR AND

SAID, I LOVE YOU.

AND WHAT WILL HE SAY TO

EACH ONE OF YOU: I LOVE

YOU.

JESUS IS WILLING TO

FORGIVE YOU, SO DON'T SAY

I CANNOT COME BACK TO THE

FATHER; I'VE SINNED AWAY

MY CHANCE.

NO, YOU HAVEN'T.

HAVE YOU COMMITTED MURDER?

GOD WILL FORGIVE IT.

ADULTERY?

GOD WILL FORGIVE IT.

DRUG ADDICTION?

GOD WILL FORGIVE IT.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

YOU'VE DONE.

THE FATHER WANTS YOU BACK

BECAUSE YOU'RE PRECIOUS.

THE FATHER WILL RUN TO

YOU, THROW HIS ARMS AROUND

YOU.

SO YOU'LL WANT TO COME

BACK TO THE FATHER'S

HOUSE.

THE FATHER HAS THIS ARMS

OPEN.

THAT'S WHAT THE CROSS IS,

ARMS OUTSTRETCHED TO

WELCOME YOU HOME.

PRAY WITH ME NOW.

THESE WORDS: FATHER -- SAY

IT WITH ME.

FATHER, I'VE SINNED

AGAINST HEAVEN.

AND I'VE SINNED IN YOUR

SIGHT.

AND I'M NOT WORTHY TO BE

CALLED YOUR SON.

BUT, GOD, I KNOW YOU DIED

FOR ME.

AND I KNOW THAT YOUR SON

SAID THAT YOU WOULD

WELCOME ME INTO THE

FATHER'S HOUSE.

SO, FATHER, I COME TO YOU.

I DON'T CLAIM ANY

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

I DON'T CLAIM THAT I'M A

GOOD PERSON.

I DON'T CLAIM ANY OF THAT.

I JUST SAY, GOD, BE

MERCIFUL TO ME, A SINNER.

AND, LORD, I TAKE YOU NOW

AS MY SAVIOR.

AND I RECEIVE YOUR ANSWER.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, THE ANGELS ARE

REJOICING THAT YOU JUST

CAME TO THE LORD.

I WANT TO ESTABLISH IT.

WE GIVE SOMETHING -- I'VE

BEEN DOING IT FOR A NUMBER

OF YEARS.

IT IS NOT JUST SOMETHING

NEW.

I HAVE A LITTLE -- IT'S A

73-MINUTE COMPACT DISC,

AND IT'S CALLED A NEW DAY.

IT HAS SOME INCREDIBLE

TEACHING IN HERE ABOUT

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BORN

AGAIN, WHAT IT MEANS TO

HAVE AN EXCHANGED LIFE,

WHAT IT IS ABOUT THE

BAPTISM -- A WHOLE LOT OF

STUFF.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE.

I WANT YOU TO CALL RIGHT

NOW AND SAY, I PRAYED WITH

PAT AND I GAVE MY HEART TO

THE LORD.

I'M REJOICING WITH THE

ANGELS.

1-800-759-0700.

CALL IN.

GOOD NEWS NOW.

AND HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: WELL, STILL TO

COME, THE TOP NFL BACK WHO

HAS BEEN RUNNING HIS WHOLE

LIFE.

I WAS CLOSE TO MY DEATH

BED BECAUSE OF ASTHMA.

I CRIED, AND THAT WAS A

TOUGH MOMENT IN MY LIFE.

I WOKE UP ONE DAY AND

SAID, I'M GOING TO RUN AND

GET IN SHAPE, TO THE POINT

WHERE I CAN OUTRUN ASTHMA.

Terry: HEAR WHAT

MAKES THIS NEW YORK GIANT

STAND TALL, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF

OKLAHOMA IS TAKING A STAND

FOR RELIGIOUS RIGHTS OF

STUDENTS.

SCOTT PRUETT OFFICIALLY

TOLD THE STATE IT CAN NO

LONGER BAN STUDENT PRAYER

AT SCHOOL SPORTING EVENTS.

HE ARGUES THE CURRENT

POLICY BLOCKING PUBLIC

PRAYER AT PLAYOFF EVENTS

IS TOO BROAD.

YOU CAN'T UNIFORMALLY

AND ARBITRARILY SAY, WE'RE

GOING TO ALLOW ALL SPEECH

EXCEPT RELIGIOUS SPEECH.

AND THAT'S WHY IT IS

OVERBROAD.

Efrem: PRUETT SAYS

BECAUSE THE STATE ALLOWS

OPEN ANNOUNCEMENTS IN A

PUBLIC FORUM, THEN

FORBIDDING ONLY RELIGIOUS

SPEECH VIOLATES THE

CONSTITUTION AND STUDENTS'

RIGHTS.

> "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS HELPING PROVIDE A

BETTER LIFE FOR FAMILIES

UNDER THE CONSTANT THREAT

OF VIOLENCE AT THE HANDS

OF ISIS.

SYRIAN AND IRAQI REFUGEES

RISKED THEIR LIVES TO

ESCAPE PERSECUTION BY

FLEEING TO NEARBY

COUNTRIES, BUT THE JOURNEY

IS LONG AND HARD.

SOME FAMILIES TRAVEL MORE

THAN A MONTH, SURVIVING

WITH ONLY THE BELONGINGS

THEY CARRY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PROVIDING HOPE TO THESE

REFUGEES WHY DISTRIBUTING

MUCH-NEEDED ITEMS,

INCLUDING FOOD,

FLASHLIGHTS, BLANKETS, AND

MORE TO FAMILIE FAMILIES

STRUGGLING TO MAKE THIS

JOURNEY.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT GOING TO ob.org.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: THE NEW YORK

GIANTS ARE CURRENTLY 2 AND

2, AND TIED FOR FIRST IN

THE N.F.C. EAST.

SUNDAY NIGHT, THEY'LL BE

UP AGAINST SAN FRANCISCO.

A BIG GUN IN THE ARSENAL

IS RUNNING BACK RASHAD

JENNINGS.

IT IS HIS SEVENTH YEAR,

PRETTY IMPRESSIVE FOR A

PLAYER WHO WAS ONCE ON HIS

DEATH BED.

Reporter: RASHAD

JENNINGS HAS QUICKLY

GAINED TRACTION IN HIS NEW

LEAD AS THE GIANTS'

STARTING RUNNING BACK.

SOMEBODY CAN CATCH THE

BALL OUT OF THE BACK FIELD

AND KNOWS HOW TO PROTECT

THE QUARTERBACK.

FOURTH AND ONE, SHORT AND

LONG.

Reporter: BOTH

VERSATILE AND READY, HE IS

A RENAISSANCE MAN IN

CLEATS.

HIS TEAMMATES HAVE

PLAYFULLY NICKNAMED QUOTE.

ONE THAT I STAND BY IS

THE MASSIVE ART OF LIVING

SHOWS DISTINCTION BETWEEN

HIS LABOR AND HIS LEISURE,

HIS MIND AND HIS BODY, AND

HIS LOVE AND HIS RELIGION.

HE SIMPLY PURSUES

EXCELLENCE AT EVERYTHING

HE DOES, LEADING OTHERS TO

DETERMINE WHETHER HE IS

WORKING OR PLAYING.

TO HIM HE IS ALWAYS DOING

BOTH.

Reporter: AFTER

PLAYING FOUR YEARS IN

JACKSONVILLE, ONE IN

OAKLAND, RASHAD CAME TO

NEW YORK AS A FREE AGENT.

I'M CURIOUS ABOUT A LOT

OF THINGS IN LIFE.

BEING IN NE NEW YORK CITY,

I'M LIKE A KID.

HE HAS BEEN PREPARING ME

EVERYWHERE HE HAS TAKEN

ME.

AND NOW TO BE IN NEW YORK

AS A GIANT, I HAD TO

OVERCOME MANY GIANTS TO

NOW ACTUALLY BECOME A

GIANT.

SO I'M THRILLED.

I'M HUMBLED.

I'M EXCITED.

I THINK GOD WANTED ME IN

NEW YORK.

FOR WHATEVER REASON, BUT I

DEFINITELY SEE HIS HAND ON

MY LIFE.

Reporter: WHAT IS IT

ABOUT THIS NFL PLATFORM

THAT ACCENTUATES YOUR

SPIRITUAL GROWTH?

YOU'RE EITHER GOING TO

BE DISTRACTED, OR YOUR

GOING TO DISTRACT

SOMEBODY.

IF I CAN RECOGNIZE

DISTRACTIONS, IT IS A GOOD

THING.

I TRY MY HARDEST TO LIVE

FROM THE REFERENCE OF

SCRIPTURES.

I'M GOING TO LET THAT BE

MY MIRROR.

EVERY DAY I'VE GOT TO BE

ABLE TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR

AND SAY, THAT'S THE GUY

I'M TRYING TO BECOME.

I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE,

THERE IS NOTHING SPECIAL

ABOUT ME.

I'M IN A SPECIAL POSITION.

Reporter: BUT THE

POSITIONING COMES FROM A

PLACE OF STRENGTH, AFTER

HE MANEUVERED AROUND AND

THROUGH CHILDHOOD ASTHMA.

I WAS HOSPITALIZED AND

CLOSE TO MY DEATH BED

BECAUSE OF ASTHMA.

THE DOCTORS TOLD ME I

WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO

PLAY SPORTS.

I CRIED AND THAT WAS A

TOUGH MOMENT IN MY LIFE.

THROUGH PRAYER AND

DETERMINATION, I WOKE UP

ONE DAY AND SAID, I'M

GOING TO RUN AND GET IN

SHAPE, TO THE POINT WHERE

I CAN OUTRUN ASTHMA.

Reporter: AND HE HAS

WITH NO SETBACKS.

HE HAS BECOME A SECOND

WIND OF ENCOURAGEMENT FOR

THOSE OVERCOMING MEDICAL

HARDSHIPS.

WHAT DOES YOUR NAME MEAN?

RASHAD MEANS WISE

COUNSELLOR.

I THINK WE ALL, AT SOME

POINT, FIND OUR PURPOSE IN

BEING A COUNSELLOR.

Reporter: RASHAD'S

TIME CAME AS A FRESHMAN

WHILE AT COLLEGE AT PITT,

WHEN HE DAD LOST HIS LEGS

TO DIABETES.

HE TRANSFERRED TO LIBERTY

YRCHTUNIVERSITY, WHERE HE HAD A

DISTINGUISHED CAREER.

WHEN MY DAD LOST HIS

LEGS TO DIABETES, I CRIED.

I COULDN'T FATHOM NOT

HAVING LEGS.

EVERY TIME I SEE MY

FATHER, I SEE A PICTURE OF

HIM, I'M ALWAYS REMINDED

THAT I HAVE THEM, AND SO I

MUST RUN.

IN LIFE, I'M ALWAYS GOING

TO BE RUNNING BECAUSE OF

THE THINGS I HAD TO

OVERCOME.

Reporter: FOR AN NFL

RUSHER, YOU WOULD THINK

THAT A NEW YORK ARRIVAL

MEANT HIS CAREER WAS

FINALLY HITTING STRIDE.

BUT NOT RASHAD.

HITTING HIS STRIDE CAME

FROM THAT VERY FIRST

LESSON WHEN HE LEARNED TO

NEVER BECOME FLAT-FOOTED.

WHEN THAT OPPORTUNITY

PRESENTS ITSELF, IT IS TOO

LATE TO PREPARE FOR IT.

Reporter: HE LEARNED

A VALUABLE LESSON DURING

ONE HIGH SCHOOL GAME.

I WAS THE FAT, DORKY

KID WITH GLASSES AND

ASTHMA.

I RODE THE BENCH.

I REALLY DID NOT PLAY.

WE'RE PLAYING AGAINST OUR

HIGH SCHOOL RIVALRY.

THEY WENT THROUGH

INJURIES, AND SO THEY

ABSOLUTELY HAD NOBODY ELSE

TO TURN TO.

I REMEMBER THE COACH

YELLING, RASHAD, GET IN

THE GAME.

I GO IN, FIRST PLAY, FIRST

CARRYING, 30-YARD

TOUCHDOWN.

I SCORED FOUR ON OFFICE

ANOFFENSEAND TWO ON DEFENSE.

THE NFL SCOUT SAID, I

COULDN'T HELP BUT TO

NOTICE YOU, AND YOU'VE GOT

POTENTIAL.

NOW ONE OPPORTUNITY

PRESENTS ITSELF, AND WHEN

NOBODY IS LOOKING, I'M

ALWAYS PREPARING.

Reporter: AN ALWAYS

LEARNING.

I'M ALWAYS TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT HOW PEOPLE DO

WHAT THEY DO.

I WANTED TO PICK UP A NEW

CRAFT, OUTSIDE OF

FOOTBALL.

I TAUGHT MYSELF HOW TO

WRITE WITH MY LEFT HAND.

I LEARNED TO PLAY THE

GUITAR.

WHY NOT?

WE CAN NEVER BE 100%

EXCELLENCE, BUT THERE ARE

MOMENTS IN OUR LIFE WE CAN

EXERCISE BEING EXCELLENT

AND THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE OF

THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

AND NOT HAVING TO BE

PERFECT, AND THE MEASURE

OF IT, AND WHAT IT LOOKS

LIKE.

THE PERFECTION WAS LINED

IN GRACE FOR US TO FALL IN

MERCY AND UNDERSTAND WHO

CHRIST IS.

Reporter: RASHAD

JENNINGS, THE

THOUGHT-PROVOKING

RUNNINGBACK WHO'S STEPS

FOLLOW HIS SAVIOR IN A

NEVER-ENDING RUN.

Reporter: WHAT IS IT

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST THAT

WINS YOU OVER DAILY?

I SEE A MAN THAT WAS

PERFECT.

I SEE A MAN WHO KNEW WHERE

HE WAS GOING.

HE WASN'T ASHAMED TO LIVE

FOR SOMETHING BIGGER THAN

HIMSELF.

WHO WASN'T FIXATED ON

DETERIORATING ANYBODY'S

FAITH TO BOLSTER HIS.

BUT HE WAS SO CONVICTED IN

HIS FAITH THAT HE MADE

EVERYBODY ELSE QUESTION

THEIRS.

HE IS A MAN OF LOVE.

HE EXEMPLIFIES IT.

AND HE IS SOMEBODY THAT I

WANT TO FOLLOW.

Terry: WOW!

YOU JUST SAY WOW!

Pat: YOU WOULDN'T

THINK HE IS ONE OF THOSE

DUMB JOCKS -- NO WAY.

Terry: HE IS SO WISE.

THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE MUCH

OLDER THAN HE IS WHO HAVE

NEVER REACHED THAT PLACE.

PRETTY IMPRESSIVE.

GREAT GUY.

Pat: WE'RE IMPRESSED.

WE'RE IMPRESSED.

> WELL, WHAT WOULD YOU

DO IF YOUR CHILDREN LOOKED

UP AT YOU AND SAID, I'M

HUNGRY, AND YOU HAD NO

FOOD TO GIVE THEM?

ONE COUPLE IN EL SALVADOR

FACED THAT SITUATION AFTER

THEY LOST THEIR FAMILY

BUSINESS AND THEIR HOME.

Reporter: TRANSITO

AND HIS YOUNG FAMILY WERE

ON THE RUN.

THEY PACKED A FEW CLOTHES

AND RACED TO THE BUS TO

ESCAPE THE THREAT.

A GANG MEMBER TOLD ME

TO PAY HIM $150 A MONTH OR

HE WOULD HURT MY FAMILY.

THEY HAD ALREADY KILLED

ENTIRE FAMILIES, SO I WAS

TERRIFIED.

Reporter: AS THEY

ENTERED THE BUS, TRANSITO

WASN'T THINKING ABOUT THE

HOUSE, THE HAMMOCK

BUSINESS, OR THE FOOD

THEY'D LEFT BEHIND.

THEY MOVED IN TEMPORARILY

BIWITH A RELATIVE.

BUT WITH NO INCOME FROM

THE BUSINESS, THERE WAS

LITTLE FOOD TO EAT OVER

THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

OUR DAUGHTER SAID,

MOMMY, I'M HUNGRY.

WE ONLY HAD WATER.

Reporter: WHEN

"OPERATION BLESSING" HEARD

ABOUT THE FAMILY, WE CAME

TO HELP.

EMERGENCY SUPPLY OF FOOD.

THEN WE BOUGHT ALL OF THE

RAW MATERIALS THEY NEEDED

TO OPEN A NEW HAMMOCK

BUSINESS.

WE ALSO GAVE THEM A SUN

CANOPY TO SET UP SHOP

ALONG THE ROAD.

I DON'T HAVE WORDS TO

SAY HOW MUCH OF A BLESSING

IT MEANT TO US.

Reporter: AS THE

COUPLE STARTED MAKING AND

SELLING HAMMOCKS, THEY

WERE ABLE TO GET BACK ON

THEIR FEET.

TODAY THEIR BUSINESS

BRINGS IN BETWEEN $250 AND

$300 IN PROFITS, ENOUGH TO

PAY THE RENT AND BUY

PAY THE RENT AND BUY

PLENTY OF FOOD.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR EVERYTHING

YOU HAVE DONE.

WE ARE GRATEFUL TO YOU

WITH ALL OF OUR HEARTS.

Pat: THAT'S WHAT ONE

LIFE AT A TIME, FOLKS,

THAT WE'RE HELPING AROUND

THE WORLD.

YOU CAN'T HELP THEM ALL.

THERE ARE BILLIONS OF

PEOPLE.

BUT WE CAN CERTAINLY HELP

ONE LIFE AT A TIME.

AND THROUGH HIS LIFE,

OTHERS WILL BE HELPED AND

OTHERS WILL BE HELPED AND

OTHERS WILL BE HELPED.

THAT IS WHAT GOD PUT US IN

THE WORLD FOR.

HE LEAVES US HERE SO WE

CAN HELP EACH OTHER.

WE HAVE SOMETHING THAT I

WANT TO GIVE YOU.

THEY ASKED ME TO DO A

LITTLE READING FROM

SPECIFIC PASSAGES IN THE

BIBLE, HAVING TO DO WITH

HEALING AND OVERCOMING

FEAR AND IT'S CALLED "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD."

IT IS A D.V.D. AND A C.D.

AND IT'S AVAILABLE TO YOU.

AND WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU

IF YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," WHICH IS $20 A

MONTH, 65 CENTS A DAY.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, I

WANT THIS.

THIS THING WILL BLESS YOU.

Terry: IT IS

POWERFUL.

I WAS LISTENING TO IT JUST

YESTERDAY DRIVING HOME

FROM WORK.

THE WORD OF GOD -- SO

OFTEN YOU SEE IN THE

PEOPLE WHO SAID THEY'VE

LISTENED TO IT, THIS PEACE

COMES OVER THEM.

IT AFFIRMS IN YOUR HEART

THAT GOD IS BIG AND

AVAILABLE.

Pat: OKAY, WHAT IS

NEXT?

Terry: UP NEXT, PAT

RETURNS TO THE HOT SEAT

FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF

"BRING IT ON."

ANTHONY'S MOM SAYS, "MY

HUSBAND AND I CAN NO

LONGER SUPPORT OUR SON'S

ADDICTIONS AND LIFESTYLE

HABITS.

HE WILL SOON BE 30.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?"

STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S

ANSWER AFTER THIS.

Terry: , PAT, THIS

FIRST E-MAIL IS FROM

ANTHONY'S MOM, "AGAIN AND

AGAIN, OUR SON'S

ADDICTIONS AND LIFESTYLE

WEIGH HEAVY ON OUR HEART.

HE CHOOSES TO BLAME US AND

EVERYONE ELSE FOR THE

DECISIONS HE ALONE

CONTINUES TO MAKE.

WE'RE OLDER NOW AND HE

WILL SOON BE 30.

I DON'T WANT HIM HOMELESS,

BUT NEITHER CAN WE

CONTINUE TO PAY FOR HIS

MISTAKES.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?"

Pat: YOU SHOULD CUT

HIM LOOSE, LET HIM GO ON

HIS OWN.

HE IS 30 YEARS OLD.

YOU'RE ENABLING HIM TO

CONTINUE HIS HABITS.

HE MAY HAVE TO HIT BOTTOM.

HE MAY HAVE TO WIND UP ON

SKID ROW, AND IT WILL

BREAK YOUR HEART TO SEE IT

HAPPEN, BUT IT'S GOT TO

HAPPEN.

YOU'VE GOT TO TURN HIM

LOOSE.

30 YEARS OLD AND HE IS

STILL A FREE LOOTE LOADER.

YOU DIDN'T FORCE HIM TO DO

WHAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO

DO.

YOU LET HIM HAVE HIS WAY.

DISCIPLINE IS IMPORTANT.

YOU KNOW?

THE BIBLE -- WE HEARD THE

SAYING, SPARE THE ROD AND

SPOIL THE CHILD.

THE LIBERALS SAY YOU

SHOULDN'T USE CORPORAL

PUNISHMENT, BLAH, BLAH,

BLAH.

YES, YOU SHOULD.

WHEN LITTLE KIDS ARE

YOUNG, THEY NEED TO BE

DISCIPLINED AND TRAINED.

NOT ABUSED, BUT

DISCIPLINED.

THERE NEEDS TO BE FIRM

DISCIPLINE WHEN A KID IS

YOUNG.

CUT HIM LOOSE.

Terry: SUE SAYS, "MY

HUSBAND LEFT ME SEVEN

MONTHS AGO FOR ANOTHER

WOMAN AFTER 33 YEARS.

I FILED FOR DIVORCE

BECAUSE HE SAID HE MADE A

COMMITMENT TO THIS OTHER

WOMAN.

I KNOW IT IS BECAUSE I'M

DISABLED AND HE WANTED A

BETTER LIFE.

I READ IN 1 CORINTHIANS

THAT WE SHOULD NOT SUE

ANYONE.

I HONESTLY DID NOT KNOW

THAT DIVORCE MEANS I'M

SUING HIM.

I WISH I WOULD NOT HAVE

HAD TO DO THIS, BUT THERE

WAS NO OTHER WAY.

DO YOU THINK GOD WILL

FORGIVE ME?

I STILL PRAY FOR MY

HUSBAND EVERY DAY."

Pat: THE LEGAL SYSTEM

HAS BEEN SET UP AND IT HAS

BEEN THAT WAY FOR A LONG

TIME.

JESUS TALKED ABOUT JUDGES.

AND WE HAVE JUDGES AND

COURTS.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

THE WAY IN TODAY'S WORLD

TO GET OUT OF A MARRIAGE

IS TO HAVE A JUDICIAL

DECREE.

THERE IS NO ABSOLUTE

PROHIBITION AGAINST SUING.

IN A CASE LIKE THIS, YOU

NEED TO GET OUT OF THIS

RELATIONSHIP.

AND IT'S PERFECTLY

LEGITIMATE UNDER THE LAW

AND UNDER THE BIBLE THAT

YOU DO SO.

Terry: ZANE SAYS,

"I'M TRYING TO GET CLOSER

TO GOD.

I DON'T KNOW SOMETIMES IF

I'M DOING EVERYTHING THE

WAY GOD WANTS IT DONE.

HOW CAN I BE SURE I'M

PLEASING GOD?"

Pat: YOU LOVE HIM.

AND THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

DO YOU LOVE GOD?

DOES HE LOVE YOU?

DO YOU SPEND TIME WITH

HIM?

DO YOU PRAY AND WORSHIP

HIM AND TELL HIM HOW MUCH

YOU LOVE HIM?

DO YOU READ HIS WORD?

IF YOU LOVE ME, YOU'LL

KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.

DO YOU TRY TO KEEP THE

COMMANDMENTS OF GOD?

DO YOU LOVE EACH OTHER?

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

IT IS REAL SIMPLE.

IT ISN'T SOME ROUTINE.

IT ISN'T SOME STEPS YOU

HAVE TO FOLLOW.

DO YOU LOVE GOD?

LOVE, IN A SENSE, IS A

MOTION AND AN ACT.

Terry: BRENDA SAYS,

"PAT, EVERY TIME I GO

BEFORE GOD FOR TOTAL

SURRENDER TO BE USED BY

HIM.

I GET SICK.

I DO NOT DEAL WITH

SICKNESS WELL.

CAN THE DEVIL MAKE US

SICK?

WHAT'S GOING ON?"

Pat: I THINK THE

DEVIL CAN PUT SICKNESS ON

PEOPLE.

AT THE SAME TIME, HERE IS

THE PRAYER YOU PRAY:

SATAN, I BIND YOU AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL.

YOU PRAY THAT IN JESUS'

NAME AND THEN GET ON WITH

YOUR LIFE.

Terry: OKAY, THIS IS

PAULA WHO SAYS, "PAT, I

KNOW GOD WANTS US TO HELP

OTHERS IN NEED.

AFTER READING 1

CORINTHIANS 12, I WANT TO

DO WHAT IS RIGHT.

BUT MY BROTHER IS IN HIS

40s AND HAS NEEDED HELP

HIS WHOLE LIFE.

MY BROTHER'S FAMILY IS ON

THE VERGE OF BEING

HOMELESS.

HOWEVER, IF WE KEEP GIVING

HIM MONEY, HE'LL NOT LEARN

TO DO FOR HIMSELF.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

I'M THE ONLY OTHER FAMILY

MEMBER?

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: THAT'S SUCH A

HARD THING.

BUT GOD DIDN'T GIVE YOU

YOUR BROTHER TO RAISE.

YOU CAN GIVE AN OFFERING

TO HIM OR GIVE A GIFT TO

HIM BECAUSE YOU LOVE HIM.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS

WITH PEOPLE TODAY, THEY

JUST DON'T SEEM TO TAKE

RESPONSIBILITY.

THEY'RE NOT TAUGHT

RESPONSIBILITY, AND THEY

HAVE THIS ATTITUDE THAT IS

CERTAINLY ENDUED BY THE

LIBERAL GOVERNMENT THAT

THE GOVERNMENT OWES THEM

SOMETHING.

NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING.

NOBODY OWES YOUR BROTHER

ANYTHING.

WHAT IS OWED HIM IS THE

OPPORTUNITY TO BE FREE AND

TO MAKE HIS OWN WAY IN

LIFE.

IF HE WOULDN'T DO IT --

THE BIBLE SAYS IF A MAN

WON'T WORK, LET HIM NOT

EAT.

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS.

THAT'S THE APOSTLE PAUL.

IF HE WON'T WORK, LET HIM

NOT EAT.

IF HE WON'T WORK OR DO

SOMETHING, YOU DON'T HAVE

TO TAKE CARE OF HIM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM 34:

"THOSE WHO SEEK THE LORD

SHALL NOT LACK ANYTHING."

WE HAVE FRANKLIN GRAHAM

TALKING ABOUT HIS FATHER

ON MONDAY'S SHOW, YOU

DON'T WANT TO MISS THAT.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, AND

WE'LL SEE YOU MONDAY.
