The 700 Club - February 9, 2016

A Civil Rights pioneer reflects on the fight for voting equality. Plus, Faytene was diagnosed with liver disease, but she believed a miracle would help her realize her dream of being a missionary. Read Transcript


THE STATE OF THE MIDDLE

EAST IS A CATASTROPHE.

Wendy: AND IT IS NOT

GETTING ANY BETTER.

THE MIDDLE EAST IS ON

FIRE.

Wendy: THE BATTLE

LINES ARE BEING DRAWN.

THE ALLIANCE BETWEEN

MOSCOW AND TEHRAN IS A

MATCH MADE IN HELL.

Wendy: AND GUESS WHO

IS IN THE CROSS HAIRS.

THIS HAS DANGEROUS

IMPLICATIONS LIKE WE HAVE

NOT SEEN IN GENERATIONS.

Wendy: AND THEN A

25-YEAR-OLD FACES A

TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS.

GOD HAS PUT DREAMS IN

HIGH HEART.

I CAN'T DO THAT STUFF IF

I'M DEAD.

Wendy: SEE HOW SHE IS

MIRACULOUSLY HEALED ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

A VICIOUS SNOWSTORM IS ON

THE WAY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, THERE IS

A HOTEL, THE MOUNT

WASHINGTON HOTEL, AND IT'S

AT THE NORTH PART OF THE

STATE.

THE THE VOTING BOOTH IS

CALLED DIXVILLE NOTCH.

IT IS THE FIRST POLLING

PLACE THAT IS OPEN TODAY.

SO THEY ANNOUNCED THE

RESULTS OF DIXVILLE NOTCH.

Wendy: ALREADY?

Pat: ALREADY.

THEY'RE HOTEL EMPLOYEES,

SO THEY SPLIT FOR TRUM,

THEY SPLIT FOR KASICH, AND

THEY SPLIT FOR RUBIO.

YOU GO UP THERE AND SHAKE

HANDS WITH ALL OF THOSE

COOKS, AND YOU THINK,

SURELY ONE COOK WILL VOTE

FOR ME.

NOT A SINGLE VOTE DID I

GET FROM THEM.

I WAS TIED WITH THE

GOVERNOR OF DELAWARE, PETE

DUPONT.

IT WAS TERRIBLE.

MY CAMPAIGN MANAGER DIDN'T

DO HIS JOB, AND HE LATER

CONFESSED, THAT I DIDN'T

DO EVERYTHING -- I TOLD

YOU I HAD DONE ALL OF THIS

STUFF, AND I DID NOT

ANYHOW, THE POLLS ARE

OPEN.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS GOING

TO BE TRUMP AND SOMEBODY.

AND THERE IS A TREMENDOUS

FIGHT FOR SECOND PLACE IN

NEW HAMPSHIRE.

Wendy: WHO IS YOUR

CALL?

Pat: KASICH IS COMING

ON REALLY STRONG.

HE CAMPAIGNED LIKE CRAZY

UP THERE.

HE WENT ALL OVER THE

STATE.

AND THEY REALLY RESPOND TO

HIM.

SO WE'LL SEE.

HE MIGHT COME IN SECOND.

WE'LL SEE.

Wendy: SOCIALIST

BERNIE SANDERS WILL

POSSIBLY BEAT HILLARY

CLINTON AMONG THE

DEMOCRATS.

THE BIG QUESTION FOR

REPUBLICANS MAY NOT BE WHO

WILL WIN, BUT WHO WILL

FINISH NEAR THE TOP AND

STAY IN THE RACE.

DAVID BRODY BRINGS US THE

STORY FROM THE GRANITE

STATE.

David: FOR MONTHS,

DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN THE

CLEAR FRONT-RUNNER IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE, AND IF POLLS

RING TRUE, THE DONALD

COULD SEE HIS FIRST

PRIMARY WIN.

WE NEED THE PROPER

LEADERSHIP, AND WE DON'T

HAVE IT NOW.

David: SECOND PLACE

IS A BIGGER QUESTION.

TED CRUZ HAS A SHOT.

HIS EVANGELICAL MESSAGE

PLAYED WELL IN IOWA.

HERE IN THE "LIVE FREE OR

DIE" STATE, HE IS TALKING

MORE LIKE A LIBERTARIAN.

THE MEN AND WOMEN IN

THIS ROOM LOVE THIS

COUNTRY, LOVE LIBERTY,

LOVE THE CONSTITUTION.

THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THIS

ROOM, I BELIEVE I KNOW

WILL CRAWL OVER BROKEN

GLASS WITH A KNIFE BETWEEN

YOUR TEETH, FIGHTING TO

SAVE THIS COUNTRY.

David: MAR MARCO RUBIO,

A STRONG THIRD FINISHER IN

IOWA WOULD BE VERY HAPPY

WITH SECOND.

NEGATIVE REVIEWS FROM HIS

WEEKEND DEBATE COULD,

HOWEVER, LEAD TO A

POSSIBLE SLIDE.

HE WAS CRITICIZED FOR

REPEATING A REHEARSED

ATTACK LINE AGAINST

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

BUT RUBIO SAYS HE IS

MOVING ON.

I'M GOING TO KEEP

SAYING THAT A MILLION

TIMES BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT

IS TRUE.

David: IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE, THEY'RE TALKING

MORE ABOUT ECONOMIC

SOLUTIONS, RATHER THAN THE

FIERY RHETORIC ON SOCIAL

ISSUES IN IOWA.

AND THAT MEANS MORE

CANDIDATES HAVE EMERGED

HERE IN THE GRANITE STATE.

ONE OF THEM IS JO JOHN

KASICH.

HE HAS DONE OVER 100

TOWNHALLS BECAUSE HE IS

HOPING TO STRIKE IT BIG.

KASICH WANTS TO BE THE

CANDIDATE OF COMMON-SENSE

SOLUTIONS, AND HE IS

PREACHING COMPASSIONATE

CONSERVATISM, TOO.

IF WE LISTEN TO ONE

ANOTHER AND HELP ONE

ANOTHER, WE MAKE A

STRONGER WORLD.

David: JEB BUSH AND

CHRIS CHRISTIE WANT TO BE

SEEN AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO

TRUMP OR CRUZ.

FOR DEMOCRATS, BERNIE

SANDERS IS POSITIONED FOR

VICTORY OVER HILLARY

CLINTON.

HIS SOCIALIST TALK APPEALS

TO THE LEFT-LEANING CROWD

UP HERE.

THERE IS CLEAR INTEREST,

WITH A RECORD TURNOUT IN

IOWA, AND STATE OFFICIALS

HERE EXPECT

RECORD-BREAKING TOTALS,

TOO.

AS FOR THE OUTCOME, THE

GRANITE STATE COULD BE

UNPREDICTABLE BECAUSE

EITHER HALF OF ALL VOTERS

ARE EITHER UNDECLARED OR

INDEPENDENT.

THAT MEANS THEY CAN VOTE

REPUBLICAN ON DEMOCRATIC,

AND MANY WON'T DECIDE

UNTIL THE LAST MOMENT.

THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD

CANDIDATES, BUT I WHITTLED

IT DOWN TO THREE OR FOUR

CANDIDATES.

I'M GOING TO GO BACK AND

YouTube SATURDAY

NIGHT'S DEBATE AND REWATCH

THE 90 MINUTES.

David: TONIGHT

VOTERS LIKE THAT WILL

LIKELY WRITE THE NEXT

CHAPTER IN THIS

PRESIDENTIAL NOVEL.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, IN

MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE.

Pat: WHEN I WAS UP

THERE, IT WAS KNOWN AS THE

CONSERVATIVE STATE, "LIVE

FREE OR DIE."

AND RONALD REAGAN WAS THE

WON WHO SAID, I PAID FOR

THAT MICROPHONE, AND THAT

WAS THE LINE THAT WON HIM

THE ELECTION UP THERE IN

NEW HAMPSHIRE.

IT'S AN INTERESTING STATE,

BUT BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE

HAVE MOVED OVER TO

MASSACHUSETTS, MORE

LEFT-WING, IF I CAN

TERM -- USUALLY THE

GOVERNOR OF MASSACHUSETTS

HAS AN EDGE IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE.

AND THOSE IN THE SOUTHERN

TIER ARE MUCH MORE LIBERAL

THAN KNOWS IN THE NORTH

COUNTRY.

BUT THERE ARE JUST NOT

MANY PEOPLE IN THE NORTH

COUNTRY.

SO IT ISN'T QUITE LIKE IT

USED TO BE.

BUT WE'LL SEE WHAT

HAPPENED, WHETHER IT

ACTUALLY REPRESENTS

AMERICA.

WE DON'T KNOW YET.

WHOEVER THE NEXT PRESIDENT

IS, HE OR SHE WILL HAVE TO

DEAL WITH A BIG FEDERAL

DEFICIT LEFT BEHIND BY

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

NOW THAT PRESIDENT IS

TRYING TO, QUOTE,"CUT THE

DEFICIT" BY RAISING TAXES,

BUT THE AMOUNT OF MONEY HE

WANTS TO SPEND IS

MONUMENTAL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: PAT, PRESIDENT

OBAMA INTRODUCES HIS 2017

FEDERAL BUDGET TODAY, AND

WITH THE DEFICIT PROJECTED

TO CLIMB $4 TRILLION.

ONE OF THE TAX INCREASES

IS A $10 FEE PER BARREL OF

OIL.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS SOME OF

THAT MONEY WOULD GO TOR FOR

RESEARCH FOR CLEAN

TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS

AND NEW ENERGY SOURCES.

AND THE BUDGET IS CERTAIN

TO INCLUDE NEW TAXES ON

BUSINESSES AND WEALTHIER

AMERICANS.

THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY

IS A DAY ON WHICH IT WILL

GET LITTLE ATTENTION.

> THE CLASHES BETWEEN

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND GAY

RIGHTS HAVE BEEN ON THE

RISE IN RECENT YEARS.

RIGHT NOW MORE THAN A

DOZEN STATE LEGISLATURES

ARE MOVING TO PROTECT THE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM OF THEIR

CITIZENS.

CHUCK HOLTON BRINGS US

THIS LOOK AT THE WORK TO

PROTECT THESE RIGHTS IN

WEST VIRGINIA.

WEST VIRGINIANS TAKE

THEIR RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES

AND RIGHTS VERY SERIOUSLY.

Reporter: IT MIGHT BE

SNOWY OUTSIDE HERE IN

CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA,

BUT IT IS HEATING UP

INSIDE THE STATE CAPITAL.

THE STATE HOUSE IS TAKING

UP A RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

RESTORATION ACT, SIMILAR

TO THE ONE THAT CAUSED SO

MUCH CONTROVERSY IN

INDIANA IN 2013.

TIM ARMSTED IS SPEAKER OF

THE HOUSE IN WEST

VIRGINIA.

IT IS NOT CREATING A

NEW RIGHT OR TAKING AWAY

ANYONE'S RIGHTS.

IT IS RESTATING WHAT OUR

CONSTITUTION STATES, AND

WHAT OUR NATURAL LAWS AND

GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS ARE.

PEOPLE IN WEST VIRGINIA

ARE JUST REACTING TO THIS

BIG GOVERNMENT OVERREACH

IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE.

Reporter: JOHN

O'NEILL HAS SERVED IN THE

STATE LEGISLATURE SINCE

2011.

WE BELIEVE WEST

VIRGINIANS SHOULD BE FREE

TO LIVE AND WORK ACCORDING

TO THEIR FAITH WITHOUT

BEING PUNISHED BY THEIR

GOVERNMENT.

Reporter: THE

CONSTITUTION LANGUAGE IS

CLEAR.

IT DOESN'T GUARANTEE

ANYONE'S RIGHT TO NOT BE

OFFENDED OR TO HAVE ANY

PARTICULAR KIND OF

LIFESTYLE OR BEHAVIOR

PROTECTED, BUT IT

GUARANTEES THE FREE

EXERCISE OF RELIGION.

Reporter: THAT

FREEDOM HAS BEEN SEVERELY

CURTAILED IN RECENT YEARS,

WITH THE GROWTH OF GAY

RIGHTS AND MANDATED

CONTRACEPTION COVERAGE

UNDER ABOU OBAMACARE.

IN 2011, WHEN I WAS

ELECTED, THERE WERE 35

REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OUT OF

THE 100, AND NOW THERE ARE

64.

Reporter: O'NEAL

KNOWS IT WILL BE

CONTROVERSIAL.

I FULLY EXPECT THERE

WILL BE A SPIRITED

OPPOSITION.

THIS HAPPENS ANY TIME

PEOPLE TRY TO STAND UP FOR

CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS

AND REALLY TO TAKE A STAND

FOR FAITH AND VALUES

ISSUES.

Reporter: VARIOUS

GROUPS WANT THE BILL TO

BECOME LAW, AND RECENTLY

CAME TO THE CAPITAL FROM

ACROSS THE STATE TO SHOW

THEIR SUPPORT.

WE DEFINITELY HAVE THE

SUPPORT OF THE MAJORITY OF

OUR MEMBERS.

AND I THINK THE

OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF

OUR MEMBERS.

IT WILL BE UP TO THE

GOVERNOR TO DETERMINE IF

HE IS GOING TO SIGN THIS

BILL.

HE COULD LET IT BECOME LAW

WITHOUT HIS SIGNATURE, OR

HE COULD VETO IT.

IF HE CHOOSES TO VETO THE

BILL, WE'LL GO TO WORK TO

OVERTURN THE VETO BECAUSE

IN WEST VIRGINIA, IT ONLY

REQUIRES A SIMPLE MAJORITY

TO OVERRIDE A GOVERNOR'S

VEET TO.

Reporter: 21 STATES

NOW HAVE LAWS ON THE BOOKS

THAT LIMIT THE

GOVERNMENT'S ABILITY TO

PUNISH PEOPLE FOR LIVING

OUT THEIR FAITH IN PUBLIC.

BUT OPPONENTS OF THESE

BILLS SAY THEY PROVIDE AN

AVENUE FOR DISCRIMINATION,

AND THESE TWO VIEWS ARE

NOT GOING TO BE RECONCILED

EASILY.

WE WOULD CERTAINLY

APPRECIATE THE PRAYERS OF

THE PEOPLE ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, THAT WE WILL DO

WHAT IS RIGHT AND HAVE THE

COURAGE TO TAKE THIS

ACROSS THE FINISH LINE.

Reporter: I'M CHUCK

HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

John: PAT, IT LOOKS

LIKE THE BILL IS WELL ON

ITS WAY TO PASS THE STATE

HOUSE.

Pat: I WAS BORN IN

LEXINGTON, VIRGINIA, AND

YOU WORKED IN WEST

VIRGINIA FOR YOUR

GOVERNOR.

Wendy: THERE ARE A

LOT OF DEMOCRATS IN WEST

VIRGINIA, BUT THEY'RE

CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRATS.

AND THEY ARE USUALLY THE

STATES THAT VOTE

REPUBLICAN IN THE

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

BUT I'M SO PROUD THAT

THEY'RE STANDING UP FOR

OUR FREEDOMS AND LEADING

THE WAY.

Pat: GOOD FOLKS --

GREAT FOLKS!

WEST VIRGINIA, WE SALUTE

YOU.

John: PAT, A

WIND-DRIVEN WINTER STORM

IS NOW EXPECTED TO BRING

SNOW TO OTHER PARTS OF THE

EAST COAST.

IT IS THE SECOND WINTER

STORM IN FOUR DAYS TO HIT

THE NORTHEAST.

AS EFREM GRAHAM REPORTS,

IT IS LEAVING ITS OWN

MARK.

Efrem: MONDAY EVENING

MEANT DIGGING OUT IN

MASSACHUSETTS, WHERE THE

LATEST STORM BROUGHT

SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW.

IN MY BACKYARD, WE'RE

UP TO FIVE FEET.

WE'RE CHASING THE

DRIFTS ON THE COAST.

Efrem: EARLIER IN THE

DAY, THE STORM SURGE

FLOODED WATER-FRONT

STREETS.

IT IS A LOT HIGHER THAN

USUAL.

IT IS GOING OVER THE SEA

WALL A FEW HOURS BEFORE

HIGH TIDE.

IT IS PRETTY STANDARD.

IT GETS PRETTY FLOODED

OVER HERE, AND IT WILL

BLOCK OFF THAT AREA.

Efrem: THE

WIND-DRIVEN SNOWSTORM LED

TO A STRING OF ACCIDENTS.

IN CONNECTICUT, A CHARTER

BUS CARRYING DOZENS OF

PASSENGERS FROM NEW YORK

CITY TO A CONNECTICUT

CASINO CRASHED AND FELL ON

ITS SIDE ON AN ICY INDECES

STATE 95.

AT LEAST 30 PEOPLE WERE

INJURED, SIX OF THEM

CRITICALLY.

WE HAD A LITTLE

EXTRICATING TO DO.

WE HAD SOME GUARD RAILS

THAT WENT THROUGH THE BUS.

Efrem: AND THE STORM

IS NOT OVER.

NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND COULD

GET FOUR TO EIGHT INCHES

OF SNOW BY LATE TODAY OR

EARLY WEDNESDAY.

NEW YORK CITY,

PHILADELPHIA, AND NEW

JERSEY COULD SEE MORE SNOW

AS WELL.

BUT BY THE TIME STORM

ENDS, EASTERN

MASSACHUSETTS AND RHODE

ISLAND COULD GET UP TO

NINE INCHES OF SNOW.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

John: SOME WILD

WINTER WEATHER.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: THAT'S CRAZY.

I DON'T THINK IT IS GOING

TO AFFECT THE BALLOTING IN

NEW HAMPSHIRE, FROM WHAT I

GATHER.

SOME PEOPLE MAY USE IT AS

AN EXCUSE TO STAY HOME.

Wendy: I HOPE WE GET

SOME SNOW DOWN HERE.

Pat: WE'LL JUST GET

FLURRIES.

Wendy: COMING UP,

STORM CLOUDS ARE ON THE

HORIZON IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

WE'RE WATCHING THE

COMPLETE CATASTROPHIC

FAILURE OF THE FOREIGN

POLICY, WE'RE WATCHING THE

ISLAMIC STATE, AND WE'RE

SEEING IRAN REWARDED FOR

ITS BELLIGERENT BEHAVIOR.

THESE ARE THE DISASTERS IN

THE MAKING.

Wendy: SO WHAT ARE

THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS

PERFECT STORM?

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE

CHILLING REPORT.

STANDARD.

Pat: A PERFECT STORM

MEANS IT IS JUST SOMETHING

FOR THE RECORD BOOKS, BUT

IS IT A PERFECT STORM FOR

WAR?

THE MIDDLE EAST HAS GONE

THROUGH PROFOUND CHANGES

SINCE THE SO-CALLED ARAB

SPRING FIVE YEARS AGO, BUT

THOSE CHANGES MAY NOT BE

LEADING TO PEACE.

INSTEAD, THE REGION COULD

BE HEADED FOR A

DISASTEROUS WAR, A WAR

THAT COULD HAVE

CONSEQUENCES FOR THE

ENTIRE WORLD.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THAT ALARMING STORY FROM

THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.

Chris: IN THE WAKE OF

THE ARAB SPRING, POLITICAL

UPHEAVAL LED TO

FRIGHTENING DEVELOPMENTS

ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST.

ISIS TERRORISTS CONQUERED

HUGE AREAS OF SYRIA AND

IRAQ.

IRAN STRUCK A LANDMARK

NUCLEAR DEAL WITH THE REST

OF THE WORLD.

RUSSIA'S MILITARY MOVED

INTO THE REGION, AND THE

TWO MAIN ISLAMIC RIVALS,

SUNNI SAUDI ARABIA AND

SHI'ITE IRAN APPEAR ON THE

BRONBRINK OF THE WAR.

THEY DESCRIBE THE

SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE

EAST RIGHT NOW AS THE

PERFECT STORM.

HE SAYS THE WORLD SHOULD

LOOK AT THE OVERALL DANGER

OF THE SITUATION, RATHER

THAN THE INDIVIDUAL

PIECES.

THAT'S BECAUSE WHAT SITS

IN THE EYE OF THE STORM IS

THE CITY OF JERUSALEM AND

THE NATION OF ISRAEL.

THE STATE OF THE MIDDLE

EAST IS A CATASTROPHE

RIGHT NOW.

THE MIDDLE EAST IS ON

FIRE.

Chris: BEST-SELLING

AUTHOR JOEL C. ROSENBERG

SEES A GLOOMY PICTURE FOR

THE YEAR AHEAD.

2016 IS GOING TO BE A

VERY DANGEROUS YEAR

BECAUSE YOU'RE WATCHING

THE COMPLETE CATASTROPHIC

FAILURE OF AMERICAN

FOREIGN POLICY UNDER

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

YOU'RE WATCHING THE

RUSSIANS AND THE IRANIANS

TRYING TO MOVE INTO THE

VACUUM OF THE AMERICAN

RETREAT.

YOU'RE SEEING IRAN HAS

BEEN REWARDED FOR ITS

BELLIGERENT BEHAVIOR AND

NOW HAS TWO PATHWAYS TO

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

Chris: MANY BELIEVE

ONE OF THE DISASTERS WILL

RESULT FROM THE NUCLEAR

DEAL WITH IRAN.

SENATOR TOM COTTON OF

ARKANSAS CALLS IT ONE OF

THE WORST DIPLOMATIC

AGREEMENTS IN U.S.

HISTORY.

EVEN IF IRAN FOLLOWS

THE DEAL TO THE LETTER,

THEY'RE GOING TO BE A

NUCLEAR THRESHOLD STATE IN

A MERE 10 TO 15 YEARS,

WHICH PRIME MINISTER

NETANYAHU SAID IS A BLINK

OF THE EYE IN THE LIFE OF

FLATIONS.

Chris: COTTON SAYS IT

COULD LEAD TO A NUCLEAR

ARMS RACE AND PUT THE

REGION ON THE BRINK OF

DISASTER.

THE LOSS OF LIFE WILL

BE COUNTED NOT IN THE TENS

OR THE THOUSANDS OR

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, BUT

IN THE MILLIONS, AND THAT

LOSS OF LIFE COULD INCLUDE

U.S. LIVES BECAUSE IRAN IS

DEVELOPING A BALLISTIC

MISSILE PROGRAM, AND THEY

HAVE TERRORISTS GROUPS

THAT HAVE SHOWN THEY'RE

WILLING TO KILL AMERICANS.

Chris: ANOTHER STORM

ON THE HORIZON IS THE

BREWING BATTLE BETWEEN

SHI'ITE IRAN AND SUNNI

SAUDI ARABIA.

THE FEUD HIT NEW HEIGHTS

WHEN THE SAUDIS EXECUTED A

TOP SHI'ITE CLERIC.

IT IS LIKE A

DECLARATION OF WAR.

Chris: MICHAEL BARACK

DOESN'T FORESEE WAR

BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.

HE EXPECTS RIVAL FACTIONS

TO DO THE FIGHTING.

WE'RE ALREADY

WITNESSING THE CLASH

BETWEEN THE SUNNIS AND THE

SHI'ITES.

IT WILL GET WORSE, OF

COURSE.

Chris: THE RUSSIA

ENTERED THE SYRIAN CIVIL

WAR, IT FORMED A AN ALLIANCE

WITH IRAN.

THAT UNPRECEDENTED

COALITION POSSESS A

GREATER DANGER TO THE

JEWISH STATE.

THE ALLIANCE BETWEEN

MOSCOW AND TEHRAN IS A

MATCH MADE IN HELL.

AND WHAT YOU'VE GOT NOW IS

THE TWO COUNTRIES ARE NOW

OPERATING IN SYRIA,

SUPPOSEDLY AGAINST THE

ISLAMIC STATE, BUT IT PUTS

THEM DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO

ISRAEL.

AND THE UNITED STATES,

UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA, HAS

THROWN UP OUR HANDS AND

SAID, WE'RE GOING TO WATCH

YOU GUYS TAKE CARE OF THE

PROBLEM.

WE'RE SEEDING THE MIDDLE

EAST OVER TO MOSCOW AND

TEHRAN.

THIS HAS DANGEROUS

IMPLICATIONS FOR THE

UNITED STATES AND THE

WORLD, AND FOR ISRAEL,

LIKE WE HAVE NOT SEEN IN

GENERATIONS.

Chris: GIVEN THESE

GROWING DANGERS, MANY

BELIEVE WE MAY YET SEE

EVEN MORE HISTORIC CHANGES

IN THE REGION AND BEYOND.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: THE BIBLICAL

BASIS FOR SOME OF THIS

DISCUSSION IS FOUND IN THE

BOOK OF EZEKIEL, CHAPTER

38.

WHERE HE TALKS ABOUT IN

THE LATTER DAYS A

COALITION COMING AGAINST

ISRAEL, HAS BEEN

REGATHERED FROM THE

NATIONS, AND WAS LIVING AT

PEACE IN THE LAND.

AND THE COALITION INCLUDED

THE CAUCASIAN STATES, THE

TURKS THE SUDAN, AND IRAN.

AND, OF COURSE, RUSSIA.

AND ALL OF THOSE TOGETHER

SEEMED TO BE FORMING

AGAINST ISRAEL.

BUT IN THE MEANTIME, IT

LOOKS LIKE THE SUNNI-SHI'A

DIVIDE MAY BE EXPLODING

BEFORE SOMETHING WITH

ISRAEL.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE

NORTH KOREANS, WHO HAVE

JUST LAUNCHED A SATELLITE

TO -- THEY ACTUALLY PUT A

SATELLITE INTO ORBIT.

AND THEY HAVE

INTERCONTINENTAL

CAPABILITIES, THAT THEY

COULD LAUNCH A MISSILE

AGAINST US.

YOU HAVE IRAN ON THE

THRESHOLD OF NUCLEAR

POWER, AND THEN YOU'VE GOT

RUSSIA WITH A HUGE ARSENAL

OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

AND THE INTENTIONS

SURROUNDING THE BALTIC

STATES, AND ALSO AROUND --

OF COURSE THEY'RE TRYING

TO TAKE OVER AS MUCH OF

UKRAINE AS THEY CAN.

AND OBAMA IS SUCCEEDING A

LOT OF THIS RADICAL GROUP

CALLED ISIS.

WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND

DONE, YOU THINK, WHAT ARE

YOU DOING?

I TALKED YESTERDAY TO A

VERY DEAR FRIEND OF MINE

WHO IS IN CONGRESS, AND

WHO IS IN LINE TO BECOME

THE NEXT CHAIRMAN OF THE

HOUSE ARMS SERVICES

COMMITTEE.

AND I SAID TO HIM, LOOK,

WE'VE GOT TO HAVE A

500-SHIP NAVY.

AND HE SAID THAT THE WAY

THEY'RE GOING, THEY'LL BE

DOWN TO ABOUT 250 SHIPS.

OBAMA WANTS TO CUT BACK ON

THE BUILDING OF SHIPS.

AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS, WE

WILL NO LONGER BE AN

INTERNATIONAL POWER.

AT BEST, WE'LL BE A

REGIONAL POWER.

BUT WE WON'T BE ABLE TO

EXTEND OUR FORCE INTO ANY

DISTANT PLACES ON THE

GLOBE.

SOUTH CHINA SAYS NO WAY.

THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA, NO

WAY.

THE ARAB SEA, NO WAY.

WE WON'T HAVE THE FORCE TO

DO IT.

THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING

WITH OBAMA.

THIS MAN IS -- HE IS

DANGEROUS.

HE IS REALLY DANGEROUS.

BUT WHETHER OR NOT HE CAN

DESTROY THIS COUNTRY IN

THE NEXT FEW MONTHS THAT

HE HAS GOT -- HIS PEOPLE

WILL SADDLE US WITH SO

MANY REGULATIONS.

BUT WE'RE LOOKING AT A

SERIOUS, SERIOUS ECONOMIC

COLLAPSE, WITH NO COUNTRY

STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE ON

THE BURDENS OF THE WORLD,

UNLESS THE UNITED STATES

MANS UP AND DOES IT.

WELL, SO MUCH FOR WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

THE ONE THING WE'VE GOT TO

REMEMBER, AND I'LL SAY IT

OVER AND OVER AND OVER

AGAIN, GOD AL ALMIGHTY IS ON

THE THRONE.

AND HE IS IN CHARGE AND

HIS PURPOSES WILL STAND,

REGARDLESS OF THE

IRANIANS, REGARDLESS OF

THE SUNNIS AND THE SHI'AS,

REGARDLESS OF THE SOVIETS.

REGARDLESS OF WHO WANTS TO

HURT WHOM, GOD WILL HAVE

HIS WAY, AND IT WILL COME

TO PASS AS THE BIBLE SAYS

IT WILL.

WENDY?

Wendy: AMEN.

TIME TO PRAY.

> COMING UP, HER LIVER

WAS FAILING, BUT HER FAITH

WAS AS STRONG AS EVER.

I CAN REMEMBER SAYING

TO THE SECRETARY, YOU ARE

ABOUT TO WITNESS THE

FASTEST HEALING OF AN

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE THAN

YOU HAVE SEEN.

I'LL SEE YOU IN A FEW

WEEKS.

Wendy: SEE HOW THIS

WOMAN WAS CURED OF AN

INCURABLE DISEASE, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

> COMING UP LATER...A

CIVIL RIGHTS HERO.

WE WERE WORKING

TOGETHER TO SECURE OUR

RIGHTS.

BUT IT WAS NOT EASY.

IT WAS NOT EASY.

Wendy: "700 CLUB"

CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY

MONTH, LATER ON TODAY'S

Pat: SHE WAS JUST 25

YEARS OLD WHEN HER BODY

STARTED FEELING.

HER PROGNOSIS WITH GRIM.

AND THE ONLY REASON SHE IS

ALIVE TODAY IS BECAUSE OF

A MIRACLE.

WELL, ALL OF A SUDDEN,

JUST OUT OF THE BLUE, I

STARTED FEELING REALLY

FATIGUED.

Reporter: 25-YEAR-OLD

FAYETINE WAS ALWAYS READY

TO TAKE ON THE DAY.

NOW SHE STRUGGLED JUST TO

GET UP IN THE MORNING.

COFFEE COULD ONLY DO SO

MUCH.

Reporter: THE FATIGUE

PERSISTED FOR WEEKS.

FAYETINE GOT CONCERNED.

AFTER PUMPING UP ON

COFFEE, AND IT WASN'T

GETTING ME OVER THE

FATIGUE, I FIGURED THERE

WAS SOMETHING ELSE GOING

ON WITH MY BODY.

Reporter: FINALLY SHE

WENT TO THE DOCTOR AND

TESTED POSITIVE FOR

AUTOIMMUNE HEPATITIS.

THE DISEASE ATTACKS THE

LIVER AND THERE IS NO

KNOWN CURE.

SHE WAS TOLD EVEN WITH

MEDICATION, SHE WOULD NEED

A LIVER TRANSPLANT WITHIN

FIVE YEARS OR SHE COULD

DIE.

WHEN YOU'RE FACING

DEATH, WHICH I WAS AT THE

AGE OF 25, YOU KNOW,

REALLY, YOU HAVE NOTHING

TO LOSE.

I CAN REMEMBER THINKING, I

HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE IN

BELIEVING THAT MY GOD IS A

GOD THAT HEALS.

IN ALL HONESTY, IT WAS

KIND OF AT THAT POINT

WHERE I FELT LIKE I HAD A

DECISION TO MAKE IN MY

HEART.

I FELT LIKE I HAD A

CHOICE.

I WAS EITHER GOING TO

TRUST IN THE NEGATIVE

ASSESSMENT OR I WAS GOING

TO TRUST IN GOD.

Reporter: FAYETINE

ASKED SOME OF HER CLOSEST

FRIENDS TO PRAY FOR

HEALING.

IN THE FOLLOWING MONTHS,

SHE NOT ONLY WRESTLED WITH

FATIGUE, SHE HAD TO BATTLE

CONSTANT DOUBT AND FEAR.

I CAN REMEMBER

THINKING, I KNOW GOD HAS

PUT DREAMS IN MY HEART.

I KNOW HE HAS PUT A DREAM

IIN MY HEART TO GO TO THE

NATION.

I HAD SUCH A HUNGER FOR

MISSIONS, FOREIGN

MISSIONS.

AND I THOUGHT, I CAN'T DO

THAT STUFF IF I'M DEAD.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

THE EXHAUTION WAS

OVERWHELMING.

ONE DAY AFTER A BIBLE

STUDY, SHE ASKED A FRIEND

TO PRAY.

IT WAS JUST SUCH A

MOMENT.

I CAN REMEMBER HER LAYING

HANDS ON ME AND PRAYING

WITH EVERYTHING SHE HAD IN

HER, AND JUST CONTENDING

FOR HER FRIEND, YOU KNOW?

I CAN REMEMBER IN THAT

MOMENT, ONCE AGAIN, THE

PRESENCE OF GOD HIT ME,

HIT BOTH OF US.

WE JUST FELT HIS PEACE AND

HIS PRESENCE IN SUCH A

POWERFUL WAY.

AND I COULD FEEL THE FIRE

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND I KNEW SOMETHING WAS

HAPPENING IN THAT MOMENT.

I FELT IT NOT ONLY ON THE

OUTSIDE, BUT I FELT IT ON

THE INSIDE.

AND I KNEW SOMETHING WAS

HAPPENING.

Reporter: THAT ARMED

HER WITH THE FAITH TO TAKE

ON MORE BAD NEWS.

AT A DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT,

SHE LEARNED HER LIVER WAS

SHOWING SIGNS OF FAILING,

BUT STILL FAYETINE TRUSTED

GOD FOR HER HEALING.

JUST IN A SHEAR ACT OF

DETERMINED FAITH, I BOOKED

MY NEXT APPOINTMENT, AND I

CAN REMEMBER SAYING TO THE

SECRETARY -- AND I THINK

IT WAS MORE FOR ME THAN

FOR HER -- I CAN REMEMBER

SAYING TO THE SECRETARY,

YOU ARE ABOUT TO WITNESS

THE FASTEST HEALING OF

OUGHT IMMUNE HEPATITIS

THAT YOU HAVE EVER SEEN IN

HIS OFFICE.

I SAID, I'LL SEE YOU IN A

FEW WEEKS.

Reporter: THREE WEEKS

LATER, FAYETINE WENT IN

FOR THE RESULTS OF ANOTHER

ROUTINE BLOOD TEST.

MOMENTS LATER HER DOCTOR

WALKED IN AND READ HER THE

REPORT.

HE TOOK HIS GLASSES OFF

AND HE LOOKED AT ME, AND

HE PERKED UP IN HIS CHAIR

A LITTLE AFTER LOOKING AT

THE DOCUMENTS.

AND HE SAID, WELL, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT YOU DID, BUT IT

SEEMS TO ME THAT YOU'VE

GOT SOME BRAND NEW BLOOD

HERE.

AND IT WAS JUST AN AMAZING

MOMENT, YOU KNOW, WHERE HE

SAID THE ENZYMES OR

SOMETHING HAD SHIFTED.

AND I WAS, LIKE, YAY, GOD.

Reporter: FAYETINE

WAS HEALED.

WITHIN A FEW SHORT MONTHS,

SHE WAS OFF TO THE MISSION

FIELD IN LIBERIA, JUST ONE

YEAR AFTER HER DIAGNOSIS.

IN THE 14 YEARS SINCE, SHE

HAS HAD NO RECURRENCE OF

THE DISEASE AND HER LIVER

IS FUNCTIONING JUST FINE.

SHE IS STILL A MISSIONARY,

AND SHARING THE JOY OF

BEING A NEW PARENT WITH

HER HUSBAND, ROB.

I'M SO GRATEFUL, YOU

KNOW.

I WOULDN'T WANT TO GO

THROUGH IT AGAIN, BUT I'M

SO GRATEFUL THAT IN THOSE

EARLY YEARS I HAD THAT

BATTLE, THAT JESUS WALKED

WITH ME THROUGH THAT AND

TAUGHT ME HOW TO FIGHT THE

FIGHT OF FAITH.

YOU CAN'T PUT A PRICE ON

THAT.

YOU CAN'T TRADE THAT IN

FOR ANYTHING ELSE.

Pat: WHAT A MARVELOUS

MIRACLE.

GOD IS ABLE.

HERE IS SUZANNE, WHO LIVES

IN SPICEWOOD, TEXAS.

SHE HAD A PART-TIME

CLEANING BUSINESS.

WHILE DOING HEAVY WORK,

SHE SPRAINED HER BACK AND

SHE USED HEAT AND

MEDICATION, AND NOTHING

WORKED.

AFTER TWO MONTHS OF PAIN,

SHE HEARD WENDY GIVE A

WORD.

"YOU'VE STRAINED YOUR BACK

AND IT IS VERY PAINFUL.

GOD IS HEALING THAT."

AND BEFORE WENDY HAD

FINISHED SPEAKING, THE

PAIN IN SUZANNE'S BACK

LEFT, NEVER TO RETURN

AGAIN.

Wendy: PRAISE THE

LORD.

HERE IS ONE FROM DAISY IN

TEXAS, EVERYTHING SHE ATE

CAUSED IMMEDIATE

DISCOMFORT.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," WHEN SHE

HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVE THIS

WORD: "SOMEBODY HAS ACID

REFLUX AND YOU ARE BEING

HEALED RIGHT NOW."

VIVIENNE KNEW THE WORD WAS

FOR HER, AND SINCE THAT

DAY, SHE HAS BEEN ABLE TO

EAT ANYTHING SHE WANTS

WITHOUT ANY TROUBLE.

PRAISE GOD.

Pat: LISTEN, GOD -- I

WAS READING TODAY -- YOU

READ IN THE BIBLE, AND

IT'S IN THERE, ALL ABOUT

GOOD.

HE SAYS HE CAN NAME ALL OF

THE PLANETS, EVERYTHING UP

THERE -- THERE ARE

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS OF THEM, AND HE

KNOWS THE NAMES OF ALL OF

THEM.

AND HE KNOWS YOU.

AND HE KNOWS YOUR

CONDITION.

AND HE KNOWS YOUR

DISEASES.

AND HE KNOWS YOUR TROUBLE.

AND THE BIG THING IS, HE

LOVES YOU.

SO WE'RE GOING TO JOIN

HANDS, AND WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE GOD.

AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE

MIRACLES.

I WANT YOU TO EXPECT A

MIRACLE RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: FATHER, I JOIN

WITH WENDY.

IN JESUS' NAME, I ASK FOR

THE POWER OF GOD TO COME

INTO PEOPLE'S LIVES.

ANOTHER ACID REFLUX

COMPLETELY HEALED IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

WENDY?

Wendy: GOD IS HEALING

CANCERS RIGHT NOW, AND

ESPECIALLY PEOPLE WITH

BLOOD CANCER.

FOR MANY, THIS IS A SPIRIT

OF INFIRMITY YOU CAN CAST

OUT AND TAKE AUTHORITY

OVER.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, JUST

COMMAND IT TO LEAVE.

Pat: RHEUMATOID

ARTHRITIS, MUSCLE DISEASE,

MUSCLE PAIN -- THE LORD IS

HEALING THAT RIGHT NOW.

IN AN INSTANT, THE PAIN IS

GONE.

MOVE AROUND.

WHERE IS THE PAIN?

THE PAIN IS GONE.

IT WON'T COME BACK.

YOU WHIPLASHED YOUR NECK

VERY BADLY.

PUT YOUR HAND ON THERE,

AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

TOUCH!

Wendy: SOMEBODY WITH

A VERY PAINFUL TOOTHACHE

RIGHT NOW, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, GOD, PLEASE HEAL

ME, AND THE LORD IS

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

RECEIVE IT.

Pat: MAY THE

ANOINTING OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT BE IN PEOPLE'S

LIVES NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, RECEIVE AN

ANSWER.

AMEN.

LET US HEAR FROM YOU.

WE LOVE TO HAVE YOUR

TELEPHONE CALLS AND

LETTERS AND EVERYTHING.

TELL US WHAT THE LORD HAS

DONE FOR YOU, AND WE'LL BE

DELIGHTED TO RECEIVE IT.

1-800-759-0700.

WENDY?

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

THE FREEDOM FIGHTER KNOWN

AS THE UNIDENTIFIED WHITE

MAN WITH MARTIN LUTHER

KING, BUT HERE IS THE

THING: HE WASN'T WHITE.

DR. KING GOT US TO

REALIZE THAT HATE ENDUCES

REALIZE THAT HATE ENDUCES

HATE, AND LOVE IS THE

GREATEST FORCE ON EARTH.

Wendy: FIND OUT HOW

THIS PASTOR HELPED CHANGE

HISTORY, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

AN AUSTRALIAN MISSIONARY

MAS BEEHAS BEEN RELEASED AFTER

BEING HELD HOSTAGE IN

BURKINA FASO.

SHE WAS SET FREE ON

SUNDAY, BUT HER HUSBAND,

SURGEON KEN ELLIOT,

REMAINS CAPTIVE.

I CAN CONFIRM THAT

MRS. ELLIOT HAS BEEN

RELEASED THROUGH THE

OFFICIALS.

I SPOKE WITH HER THIS

MORNING.

SHE WAS WELL, SHE WAS

RELIEVED, AND SHE WAS VERY

TIRED.

HER OVERRIDING CONCERN NOW

IS FOR HER HUSBAND,

DR. KENNETH ELLIOT.

HE HAS NOT YET BEEN

RELEASED.

Efrem: THE COUPLE WAS

CAPTURED WHEN ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS ATTACKED THE

CAPITAL OF BURKINA FASO

KILLING 30 PEOPLE.

THE ELLIOTS ARE BOTH IN

THEIR 80s.

THEY'VE BEEN RUNNING A

MEDICAL CLINIC IN BURKINA

FASO FOR 40 YEARS.

> A CHRISTIAN GROUP SAYS

NASA HAS BANNED THE NAME

OF JESUS FROM A DAILY

NEWSLETTER AT THE JOHNSON

SPACE CENTER IN HOUSTON.

LIKE OTHER GROUPS, THE

J.S.C. PRAISE CLUB PUTS

ANNOUNCEMENTS IN THE

NEWSLETTER THAT IS

E-MAILED TO ALL EMPLOYEES

AT THE CENTER.

THE CLUB INSERT INCLUDED

THE PHRASE "JESUS IS OUR

LIFE."

FOX NEWS THAT THE LIBERTY

INSTITUTE SAYS NASA

ATTORNEYS INFORMED CLUB

LEADERS THAT THE NAME

JESUS IS SECTARIAN, AND

INCLUDING IT IN THE

AGENCY'S NEWSLETTER

AMOUNTED TO AN

UNCONSTITUTIONAL

ENDORSEMENT OF RELIGION.

THE LIBERTY INSTITUTE SAYS

BANNING THE NAME JESUS

INFRINGES ON EMPLOYEES'

FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

A NASA STATEMENT SAYS IT

DOES NOT PROHIBIT THE USE

OF RELIGIOUS NAMES IN

EMPLOYEES' NEWSLETTERS.

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: FOR YEARS,

REVEREND JESSE DOUGLAS WAS

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING,

JR.'S FRIEND.

THE TWO MARCHED ARM IN ARM

THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH.

AND WE WANT TO SHOW YOU

HOW HE AND DR. KING ALSO

MARCHED THEIR WAY INTO

HISTORY.

DAVID KISCART HAS HIS

STORY.

> Reporter: WHEN

PRESIDENT LYNDON B.

JOHNSON SIGNED THE PODIUM

RIGHTS ACT OF 1965 INTO

LAW, IT WAS A DAY THAT

CHANGED AMERICA.

WHEREVER THY CLEAR AND

OBJECTIVE STANDARDS,

STATES AND COUNTIES ARE

USING REGULATIONS OR LAWS

OR TESTS TO DENY THE RIGHT

TO VOTE, THEN THEY WILL BE

STRUCK DOWN.

Reporter: REVEREND

JESSE DOUGLAS, A

CO-LABORER AND FRIEND OF

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING,

JR. WAS ONE OF MANY

FIGHTING FOR

AFRICAN-AMERICANS' RIGHT

TO VOTE.

IT WAS OUR JOB TO

DEFEND THEIR RIGHTS AND TO

STAND UP, FOR THEM TO BE

COUNTED.

Reporter: DOUGLAS

HELPED SPEARHEAD THE

MOVEMENT TO REGISTER

VOTERS IN ALABAMA, WHERE

THEY FACED VERY STRONG

RESISTANCE.

WE WERE WORKING

TOGETHER IN ORDER TO

SECURE OR RIGHTS.

BUT IT WAS NOT EASY.

IT WAS NOT EASY.

Reporter: TELL ME

ABOUT THAT, ABOUT IT NOT

BEING EASY.

THE WHITE PEOPLE WHO

RESENTED IT WOULD APPEAR

AT PLACES AND TRY TO EXERT

BRUTALITIES, SPITTING ON

PEOPLE AND SLAPPING THEM.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

BRUTALITY, DOUGLAS, LIKE

DR. KING, APPROACHED IT

WITH NON-VIOLENCE.

THE APPROACH WAS

NON-VIOLENCE, AND FROM A

CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE.

HOW DID YOU GET PEOPLE

CONVINCED TO GO THAT ROUTE

WHEN IT GOES AGAINST HUMAN

NATURE.

WELL, THEY HAD TO SIGN

PAPERS, PROMISING THEY

WOULD NOT VIOLATE OUR

NON-VIOLENT PROCEDURE OF

DEMONSTRATION.

DR. KING GOT US TO REALIZE

THAT HATE ONLY PROVOKES

HATE, AND VIOLENCE ONLY

PROVOKES VIOLENCE.

AND THAT LOVE IS THE

GREATEST FORCE ON EARTH.

Reporter: THAT

PHILOSOPHY WOULD BE TESTED

ON MARCH 7, 1965.

600 PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATORS

GATHERED IN SALMA,

ALABAMA, TO MARCH 50 MILES

TO MONTGOMERY, THE STATE

CAPITAL.

BUT JUST OUTSIDE OF SELMA,

THEY GOT ATTACKED WITH

TEAR GAS.

IT WAS KNOWN AS "BLOODY

SUNDAY."

THE EYES OF THE NATION

HAD BEEN DRAWN TO THAT

SITUATION AS A RESULT OF

THE BRUTALITY EXERTED ON

THE PEOPLE OF SELMA.

Reporter: THEN ON

MARCH 25th, DR. MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR., WITH

REVEREND DOUGLAS AT HIS

SIDE, LED OVER 25,000

PROTESTORS TO MONTGOMERY.

THIS TIME BY ORDER OF THE

PRESIDENT, THEY MARCHED

UNDER THE PROTECTION OF

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

FIVE MONTHS LATER,

PRESIDENT JOHNSON SIGNED

THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT OF

1965 INTO LAW, GIVING

AFRICAN-AMERICANS THE

RIGHT TO VOTE WITHOUT

FACING DISCRIMINATION THE

THE STATE AND LOCAL

LEVELS.

IT WAS A MAJOR STEP

TOWARDS RACIAL EQUALITY,

BUT THE FIGHT WAS FAR FROM

OVER.

IT TOOK TIME, AND SOME

PEOPLE DIED.

OH, YES, BUT WE

ANTICIPATED THAT.

BUT THEY WERE DOING IT FOR

THE BENEFIT OF THEIR

CHILDREN AND THEIR

CHILDREN'S CHILDREN.

AND THEY MADE IT UP IN

THEIR MIND THAT THEY WERE

WILLING TO SACRIFICE THEIR

LIVES.

Reporter: ONE OF

THOSE SACRIFICES

DEVASTATED DOUGLAS ON

THEIR CAUSE.

ON APRIL 4th, 1968,

DR. KING WAS SHOT AND

KILLED AT A HOTEL IN

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE.

THE NEWS STRUCK ME LIKE

SOMEBODY THAT TAKEN A

DAGGER AND PIERCED ME IN

THE HEART.

I COULDN'T REACT.

I GUESS IT WAS ONE OF THE

GREATEST HURTS THAT I'VE

EVER HAD IN MY LIFE.

I LOVED THE MAN.

IT SEEMED LIKE WHAT WAS

BEING FAULT FOR WENT WITH

HIM?

IT DID HALT THE

MOVEMENT FOR A WHILE

BECAUSE EVERYBODY WAS IN

MORNING.

THE NATION WAS IN

MOURNING.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, DOUGLAS HAS

CONTINUED FIGHTING FOR THE

RIGHTS OF

AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

HE HAS ALSO BEEN A DEVOTED

FAMILY MAN AND PASTOR.

NOW 85, HE FINALLY

REMEMBERS HIS TIME SPENT

WITH DR. KING AS THEY

ENVISIONED AN AMERICA

WHERE EVERYONE IS TREATED

EQUALLY.

BEFORE HE PREACHED,

BEFORE HE SPOKE, I WOULD

SING HIS FAVORITE SONG,

WHICH WAS "I TOLD JESUS IT

WOULD BE ALL RIGHT IF HE

CHANGED MY NAME."

Reporter: WHAT DOES

THAT MEAN?

WHEN YOU'RE NAME IS

CHANGED, YOUR CHANGED FROM

A SINNER TO A SAINT, AND

YOU BECOME COMMITTED TO

CHRIST AND HIS MISSION.

YOU'RE A CHANGED PERSON.

YOU'VE BEEN BORN AGAIN.

* OH, I TOLD JESUS

* IT WOULD BE ALL RIGHT

* IF HE CHANGED MY NAME

Wendy: WHAT A STORY,

PAT.

I'M SPEECHLESS.

THAT IS INCREDIBLE.

Pat: COURAGE.

IT TOOK TREMENDOUS COURAGE

TO DO WHAT THEY DID.

AND THEY BROKE THROUGH,

AND I THINK IF SOME OF THE

REBEL-ROUSERS WILL LEAVE

THINGS ALONE, WE'LL HAVE

HARMONY IN THE RACES.

I THINK THE BARRIERS HAVE

BEEN KNOCKED DOWN.

Wendy: IT WAS A

BEAUTIFUL STORY.

> STILL TO COME, ANOTHER

SESSION OF "ASK PAT."

HERE IS A QUESTION FROM

LORI: HOW DO YOU HEAR THE

VOICE OF GOD, AND HOW DO

YOU KNOW HE SPOKE TO YOU?

PAT WILL ANSWER THAT AND

MORE WHEN WE COME BACK.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

TODAY MANY HOLOCAUST

SURVIVORS IN ISRAEL LIVE

IN POVERTY.

THAT'S WHY CBN ISRAEL IS

THERE TO MEET THE NEEDS OF

THESE ELDERLY PEOPLE, FROM

FOOD TO MEDICAL CARE, AND

WEEKLY VISITS TO KEEP THEM

COMPANY.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: INNIS OFTEN

SPENDS HER DAYS ALONE IN

HER APARTMENT IN ISRAEL.

SHE IS A HOLOCAUST

SURVIVOR FROM BELARUS.

HER EARLIEST MEMORIES ARE

NAZI TANKS AND HER

MOTHER'S LAST WORDS.

BOMBS WERE FALLING AS

WE RAN, AND THE CITY WAS

ON FIRE.

A YOUNG BOY WAS KILLED

RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.

I REMEMBER MY MOTHER

HUGGED ME AND SAID, I WILL

NOT SEE YOU AGAIN.

I ONLY UNDERSTOOD WHAT

THIS MEANT LATER.

Reporter: HER MOTHER

WAS TAKEN AWAY BY NAZIS,

SHOT AND KILLED.

SHE AND HER THREE SIBLINGS

SURVIVED AS ORPHANS IN A

GHETTO IN MINTZ.

WE WERE CONSTANTLY HONG

GREE ANHUNGRY AND WE HAD NO

SHOES.

TO THIS DAY, I HAVE

PROBLEMS WITH MY FEETS

FROM RUNNING THROUGH THE

BROKEN STREETS IN THE

SNOW.

Reporter: SHE

SURVIVED WITH THE HELP OF

A CHRISTIAN MAN.

HE SMUGGLED HER FROM HOUSE

TO HOUSE IN THE BACK OF A

HORSE-DRAWN CART AS THE

NAZI S.S. HUNTED JEWS IN

HIDING.

THAT MAN TOOK A GREAT

RISK.

HE SAVED MY LIFE.

Reporter: YEARS AFTER

THE WAR, INNIS MOVED TO

ISRAEL TO BEGIN A NEW

LIFE.

WHEN I MET HER, I COULD

SEE SHE STILL CARRIES THE

PAIN OF EVERYTHING SHE

WENT THROUGH.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO WALK

SOME TIMES, AND THE

WINTERS ARE ESPECIALLY

HARD ON ME.

MY COLD AND MY FEET ACHE

SO MUCH.

Reporter: SO CBN

BAULBOUTBOUGHT INNIS A FOOT BATH.

I LOVE THE FOOT BATH.

IT RELIEVES THE PAIN.

IT WAS VERY SWEET OF YOU

TO GIVE THAT TO ME.

I FEEL LIKE I COULD RUN A

MARATHON.

Reporter: AND CBN

ISRAEL GOT INNIS A

PORTABLE HEATER.

AND WE TAKE HER GROCERIES

EVERY WEEK.

THE GOOD FOOD HELPS SO

MUCH, AND IT MEANS EVEN

MORE THAT IT IS BROUGHT BY

PEOPLE WHO CARE FOR ME.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL

OF DO FOR ME AND ALL OF

THE OTHER SURVIVORS.

YOU'RE KEEPING OUR STORIES

ALIVE, SO WE'RE NOT JUST

PAGES IN A HISTORY BOOK.

Wendy: GOD BLESS HER.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP HER

AND PEOPLE AROUND THE

WORLD, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

AND $20 A MONTH.

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO

BLESS YOU WITH PAT'S NEW

TEACHING "HEAVEN, WHAT GOD

HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO

LOVE HIM."

THIS IS INCREDIBLE.

IF YOU'RE A SKEPTIC, OR IF

YOU BELIEVE IN HEAVEN BUT

YOU HAVE A LOT OF

QUESTIONS ABOUT IT, IT'S

ALL IN HERE.

WHEN YOU CALL THE NUMBER

ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

> WELL, WITHOUT FURTHER

ADIEU, LET'S GO TO THE THE

QUESTIONS.

LORI SAYS, "HOW DO YOU

HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD, AND

HOW DO YOU KNOW HE SPOKE

TO YOU?"

GOOD QUESTION, LORI.

Pat: IN THE BOOK OF

HEBREWS SAY THOSE HAVE

THIGHTHEIR SENSES EXERCISED TO

DISCERN GOOD FROM EVIL.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE

FROM PRACTICING THE

PRESENCE OF GOD.

WE ALL SEE THROUGH A

GLASS, AND THEN WE'RE

GOING TO SEE FACE TO FACE.

WE HEAR IN PART.

HOW DO YOU KNOW?

YOU KNOW -- AMONG OTHER

THINGS, THE VOICE OF GOD

HAS TO COINCIDE WITH THE

BIBLE.

IF IT DOESN'T, YOU KNOW

YOU'RE HEARING SOMETHING

WRONG.

Wendy: VICTOR SAYS,

"WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN HAVING A GOOD

SELF-ESTEEM AND BEING

PROUD?

CAN'T PRIDE IN ONE'S SELF

BE A GOOD THING?"

Pat: JESUS SAID THIS

TO US, YO: YOU ARE TO LOVE

YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOU LOVE

YOURSELF.

THAT'S WHAT IT AMOUNTS TO.

AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY

SELF-ESTEEM, YOU'LL HAVE A

HARD TIME REFLECTING

SELF-ESTEEM ON SOMEBODY

ELSE.

SO YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOME

FEELING INSIDE THAT YOU

ARE WORTH SOMETHING.

YOU KNOW, THAT SONG THEY

PUT OUT SOME YEARS AGO,

I'M A GREAT BIG BUNDLE OF

JOY ALL WRAPPED UP, I AM A

PROMISE -- I HAVE HOPE AND

I HAVE SOMETHING IN GOD.

THAT IS NORMAL.

AND THERE IS CERTAINLY

NOTHING WRONG WITH

THINKING -- IF YOU CAN RUN

A HUNDRED YARD DASH IN

NINE SECONDS, THEN YOU ARE

FAST.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: AND YOU DON'T

SAY, I'M AN OLD SLOW POKE

BECAUSE YOU'RE LYING.

Wendy: HUMILITY,

THOUGH --

Pat: EXACTLY.

IF YOU GO AROUND -- I KNEW

ONE YOUNG MAN, AND YEARS

AGO HE WAS A HIGH SCHOOL

FOOTBALL STAR.

AND HE NEVER GOT OVER IT.

AND IT IS KIND OF, LIKE, I

DON'T CARE WHAT YOU DID IN

HIGH SCHOOL.

I MEAN, YOU KNOW, WHO

CARES.

WERE YOU IN THE PROS?

BUT DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE A

HOT-SHOT BECAUSE YOU WERE

A HALFBACK IN THE HIGH

SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM.

WE ALL PLAYED HISTORY

FOOTBALL.

SO WHAT?

Wendy: I HAVE NOT

PLAYED HIGH SCHOOL.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: THE IDEA IS TO

BE PROUD OF THINGS LIKE

THAT AND THINK YOU'RE

BETTER THAN SOMEBODY ELSE,

THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

Wendy: IT REMINDS ME

OF THE TITLE OF MY BOOK

"YOU ARE A PRIZE TO BE

WON."

JOYCE WRITES IN, "ON WHAT

QUALITY SHOULD A CHRISTIAN

BASE THEIR DECISION TO

VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT.

I'VE SOUGHT GUIDANCE IN

CLEAR, AND SO FAR HAVEN'T

GOTTEN A CLEAR ANSWER.

I'VE NARROWED IT DOWN TO

TWO, BUT CHANGE MY MIND

FROM DAY TO DAY."

I CAN RELATE.

"I DEFINITELY KNOW WHO I

DON'T WANT TO BE OUR NEXT

PRESIDENT."

Pat: I HAVE

ORGANIZATIONS, AND JUST

TWO OF THEM HAVE ABOUT

3,000 EMPLOYEES.

AND SO I HAVE TO MAKE

DECISIONS ALONG THE WAY,

WHO WOULD BE THE BEST.

THE FIRST THING YOU LOOK

AT IS CHARACTER.

IF THIS PERSON IS A LIAR

OR THIS PERSON IS IMMORAL,

THIS PERSON IS A DRUNKARD

OR A DRUG ADDICT, YOU

DON'T WANT THOSE PEOPLE.

WE'VE HAD PEOPLE WHO HAVE

HAD THAT LOW CHARACTER.

THE OTHER THING IS, YOU'VE

GOT A TASK.

YOU WANT SOMEBODY AS HEAD

OF YOUR PUBLIC RELATIONS,

WELL, DO THEY KNOW HOW TO

DO IT.

IF YOU WANT SOMEBODY AS AN

ENGINEER, DO KNEE KNO THEY KNOW HOW

TO MAKE ALL OF THAT

EQUIPMENT WORK?

IF YOU NEED A LIGHTING

EXPERT, DO THEY KNOW HOW

TO SET THE LIGHTS AND THE

SHADING THAT IS INVOLVED,

AND DO THEY HAVE

EXPERIENCE?

WE SOMEHOW THINK WE CAN

TAKE SOMEBODY OFF OF THE

STREET AND MAKE HIM THE

HEAD OF THE BIGGEST

ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD.

YOU NEED TO LOOK FOR

EXPERIENCE.

I THINK WE NEED

EXPERIENCE.

WE'VE GOT IN THERE A

COMMUNITY ORGANIZER WHO

NEVER RAN ANYTHING IN HIS

LIFE.

AND WE HAVE THE FAILURES

TO GO ALONG WITH IT

BECAUSE HE DOESN'T KNOW.

ALL RIGHT.

Wendy: AMEN.

> BILLY SAYS, "DID JESUS

CHRIST DIE A FAILURE.

THE FIRST TIME I HEARD

THIS WAS FROM A MUSLIM.

I WAS NOT SHOCKED WHEN IT

HEARD IT FROM A MUSLIM,

BUT I WAS SHOCKED WHEN I

HEARD IT FROM A PROFESSOR

OF RELIGION."

Pat: A FAILURE IS

OUTRAGEOUS.

WHAT WAS HE HERE TO DO?

NUMBER ONE, HE WAS HERE TO

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT GOD, THE

FATHER.

HE WAS HERE TO DEMONSTRATE

A SINLESS LIFE.

BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING, HE

HAD TO DIE.

HE HAD TO DIE.

HE HAD TO DIE TO PAY THE

SINS OF MANKIND.

HE WAS THE REPRESENTATIVE

OF HUMANITY WHO HAD TO DIE

IN ORDER TO PAY THE PRICE

FOR ALL OF OUR SINS.

YOU THINK THAT'S A DEFEAT?

THAT'S TRIUMPH!

AND HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD

AND HE LIVES FOREVER MORE,

AND HE IS IN CHARGE OF

EVERYTHING.

AND EVERYTHING BOWS THEIR

KNEE TO JESUS CHRIST.

HE IS A WINNER!

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

AND THANK YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
