The 700 Club - February 16, 2016

Heartbroken families forgive the South Carolina church shooter. Plus, an on-the-job injury is no match for God’s healing power. Read Transcript


Wendy: TODAY, THE

CUBAN REVOLUTIONARY WHO

MOVED TO CANADA AND WHO'S

SON IS NOW RUNNING FOR

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

TED CRUZ'S FATHER, RAFAEL,

ISSUES HIS CALL TO ACTION.

AND THEN...FROM

CHARLESTON, SOUTH

CAROLINA.

THERE ARE MULTIPLE

PEOPLE DOWN.

Wendy: ...THE

FAMILIES OF THOSE MURDERED

BY RACISM HAVE A

SURPRISING MESSAGE FOR THE

KILLER.

HATE BROUGHT US HERE,

BUT LOOK WHERE LOVE IS

GOING TO TAKE US.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, FOLKS, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, I HATE

TO READ THE NEWS IN THE

MORNING.

IT JUST -- YOU THINK, WHAT

IS GOING ON?

TRUMP SAYS, I'M GOING TO

SUE CRUZ BECAUSE CRUZ

ISN'T A CITIZEN, HE WAS

BORN IN CANADA.

THAT MEANS THAT ALL OF THE

CHILDREN OF ALL OF THE

SERVICEMEN IN THE -- THE

PEOPLE IN THE DIPLOMATIC

CORPS ARE NOT CITIZENS.

THAT'S NONSENSE.

AND THEN THE PRESIDENT

SAYS, WELL, I'M GOING TO

FULFILL MY CONSTITUTIONAL

RESPONSIBILITY, I'M GOING

TO NOMINATE SOMEBODY TO

THE SUPREME COURT.

AND THE SENATE REPUBLICANS

SAY NO WAY.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO KICK

THE BALANCE OF THAT COURT

TO THE LEFT.

WE'RE GOING TO HOLD THE

LINE.

AND SO LET'S JUST HAVE A

BIG SLOWDOWN AND A FIGHT.

DON'T YOU HATE IT?

MAYBE THAT'S THE WAY WE'RE

SUPPOSED TO LIVE.

DO YOU GET SICK OF THIS

STUFF?

I DO.

Wendy: I'M GETTING

SICK OF ALL OF THE

BICKERING AND THE FIGHTING

BETWEEN THE CANDIDATES.

Pat: THAT DEBATE DOWN

IN SOUTH CAROLINA WAS

AWFUL.

Wendy: IT WAS UGLY.

IT WAS REALLY NASTY.

WHEN TRUMP BLAMED GEORGE

W.FOR 9/11, THE CROWD

BOOED.

TRUMP IS NOT DOING HIMSELF

ANY FAVORS.

Pat: YOU DON'T BLAST

THE PRESIDENT OF YOUR

PARTY.

HE IS WORSE THAN MICHAEL

MOORE.

> GO AHEAD, WE'VE GOT

GOOD THINGS TODAY.

Wendy: IT COULD BE AN

ELECTION YEAR SHOW DOWN

OVER WHO WILL REPLACE THE

BRILLIANT SUPREME COURT

JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA.

DEMOCRATS SAY PRESIDENT

OBAMA HAS THE RIGHT TO

NOMINATE WHOEVER HE WANTS,

BUT THE REPUBLICANS SAY

THE NEXT PRESIDENT SHOULD

MAKE THAT DECISION.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA HAS MADE IT CLEAR,

HE IS READY TO FIGHT TO

REPLACE THE LATE SUPREME

COURT JUSTICE ANTONIN

SCALIA.

President Obama: I

PLAN TO FULFILL MY

CONSTITUTIONAL

RESPONSIBILITIES TO

NOMINATE A JUSTICE IN DUE

TIME.

Reporter: THE

REPUBLICANS WANT THE NEXT

PRESIDENT TO NOMINATE

SCALIA'S SUCCESSOR.

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATES AGREE.

I DO NOT AGREE THE

PRESIDENT SHOULD APPOINT

SOMEONE.

I THINK IT IS UP TO

MITCHELL McCONNELL AND

EVERYBODY ELSE TO STOP IT.

Reporter: AND NOW

REPUBLICANS SUGGEST THEY

MAY NOT EVEN HOLD A

HEARING ON PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S NOMINEE, NO MATTER

WHO IT IS.

HILLARY CLINTON AND BERNIE

SANDERS EXPRESSED OUTRAGE

AT THE REPUBLICAN

POSITION, WITH CLINTON

SIGNALLING SHE IS READY TO

MAKE IT A CAMPAIGN ISSUE.

I'M HOPING THAT WE'LL

GET SOMEBODY NOMINATED

THAT EVERYBODY WILL SAY,

HEY, THE ONLY REASON TO

BLOCK THIS IS PURE

PARTISANSHIP.

SO DO YOUR DUTY.

Reporter: ON ABC'S

THIS WEEK'S PROGRAM,

SCHUMER ACCUSED

REPUBLICANS OF

OBSTRUCTIONISM.

LET HIM SHOW ME THE

CLAUSE THAT SAYS THE

PRESIDENT IS ONLY

PRESIDENT FOR THREE YEARS.

DOES THIS MEAN WE DON'T

HOLD HARBORS O HEARINGS ON ANYTHING.

Reporter: WHEN GEORGE

W.BUTCGEORGEW. BUSH ONLY HAD A YEAR

AND A HALF LEFT IN HIS

TERM, HE WAS SAYING

SOMETHING ELSE.

WE SHOULD NOT CONFIRM

ANY BUSH NOMINEE TO THE

SUPREME COURT ACCEPT IN

EXTRAORDINARY

CIRCUMSTANCES.

Reporter: SOME SAY

THE DEMOCRATS WILL TRY TO

MAKE IT TOUGHER FOR

REPUBLICANS, BY NOMINATING

A JUSTICE WHO HAS ALREADY

BEEN CONFIRMED.

Pat: IT IF GOES THE

OTHER WAY, IT WILL BE 5-4

LIBERAL, AND THOSE PEOPLE

SIT FOR LIFE.

SO WE'RE NOT LOOKING AT

TWO YEARS, THREE YEARS, OR

FOUR YEARS.

WE'RE LOOKING AT MAYBE 20

OR 30 YEARS FOR WHOEVER

THE NEXT NOMINEE IS.

AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE

EVERY RIGHT TO SAY WE'RE

GOING TO SLOW WALK THIS

THING.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE

RUSHED.

AND -- BUT CHUCK SCHUMER

HAS FLIP-FLOPPED.

BUT THEY DON'T SEEM TO

HAVE ANY SHAME.

THEY JUST LIE.

I HEARD SOMETHING

YESTERDAY THAT KIND OF

APPALLED ME, THOUGH.

YOU KNOW BERNIE SANDERS IS

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.

Wendy: IS HE REALLY?

Pat: AND HE WON NEW

HAMPSHIRE.

BUT WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW WAS

THAT BERNIE SANDERS, UNTIL

HE WAS 40, WAS ESSENTIALLY

A BUM.

HE HAD NO EMPLOYMENT

WHATSOEVER.

HIS FIRST PAYCHECK DID NOT

COME UNTIL HE WAS EITHER

39 OR 40 YEARS OLD.

AND HIS JOB THEN WAS

COUNTING PEOPLE WHO HAD

FOOD STAMPS.

Wendy: I'M SHOCKED.

I HAD NO IDEA.

I DON'T THINK PEOPLE KNOW

THAT.

THEY DO NOW.

Pat: THEY'RE GOING TO

KNOW IT IN A HURRY BECAUSE

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING

TO BE TALKING ABOUT IT.

YEAH, THAT SHOCKS YOU,

DOESN'T IT?

BUT HE IS A PROFESSIONAL

LEFT WINGER.

IT IS AMAZING.

AND NOW THE LIBERAL

COMMUNISTS ARESAYING IT WILL RUN OF THE

DEFICIT.

> THE TEMPERATURE

OUTSIDE HAS BEEN EXTREMELY

COLD.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: EXTREMELY COLD

IS RIGHT, PAT.

IT HAS BEEN VERY COLD IN

WASHINGTON IN THE LAST FEW

DAYS, AND EVEN THOUGH IT

IS FINALLY STARTING TO

WARM UP NOW, MUCH OF THE

EAST COAST IS STILL FACING

THE FURY OF THAT WEEKEND

WINTER STORM.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON HAS THE

STORY.

RAIN, SLEET, AND SNOW ARE

STILL PLAGUING THE EAST

COAST.

TRAVEL ADVISORIES WERE

STILL IN EFFECT TODAY

AFTER SLICK STREETS AND

NEARLY 1400 FLIGHT

CANCELLATIONS ON MONDAY.

THE STORM CAME A DAY AFTER

DOZENS OF LOCATIONS IN THE

NORTHEAST SHATTERED

RECORD-BREAKING LOW

TEMPERATURES.

AT NINE DEGREES BELOW

ZERO, BOSTON SAW ITS

COLDEST MORNING SINCE

1957, AND IN NEGATIVE 1°

NEW YORK CITY IT WAS THE

COLDEST VALENTINE'S DAY IN

100 YEARS.

COMMUTERS ARE BACK ON THE

ROAD AFTER A THREE-DAY

WEEKEND, AND MANY ARE

EXPERIENCING SLIPPERY AND

SLOW TRAVEL CONDITIONS

AFTER A VARIETY OF

PERCIPITATIONS STORMED UP

AND DOWN THE EAST COAST.

VIRGINIA, KENTUCKY, WEST

VIRGINIA, AND MARYLAND,

SAW THE HEAVIEST SNOW

TOTALS FROM THE STORM, IN

SOME PLACES SEEING MORE

THAN SEVEN INCHES.

DOWNTOWN, SUSPECTED

TORNADOES TOUCHED DOWN IN

FLORIDA, DESTROYING UP TO

10 HOMES AND DAMAGING A

HIGH SCHOOL.

THE TEMPERATURES ARE

RISING TODAY, WHICH WOULD

CAUSE FLOODING IN SOME

AREAS.

EAST COASTERS HAVE BRACED

THEMSELVES FOR RAIN AND

HIGH WINDS AS THE STORM

WRAPS UP.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

John: IN TODAY'S

EDITION OF IN FAMILY

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS,

"RISEN" OPENS IN THEATERS

THIS FRIDAY.

IN THE STORY OF A ROMAN

COMMANDER WHO IS ORDERED

TO INVESTIGATE THE

DISAPPEARANCE OF JESUS

AFTER HIS CRUCIFIXION.

CHARLENE AARON SPOKE WITH

THE LEADING ACTORS AND THE

PRODUCERS BEHIND THIS

POWERFUL FILM.

Charlene: "RISEN" IS

THE RESURRECTION STORY.

BRITISH ACTOR JOSEPH

FIENNES PLAYS CLAVIUS.

I THOUGHT THAT

PARTICULAR LENS, THROUGH

THE EYES OF A ROMAN

SOLDIER, WHO IS THERE TO

QUELL THESE UPRISINGS,

BEFORE THE EMPEROR OF ROME

AARRIVES, HE HAS TO BRING

ORDER.

AND OU OUT OF THAT, HE FALLS

INTO THE MOST MURDER

MYSTERY OF ALL TIMES.

Reporter: HE HAD TO

ENSURE THAT JESUS'

FOLLOWERS DON'T STEAL HIS

BODY AND CLAIM HE HAS

RISEN FROM THE DEAD.

PALCO SAYS HE WAS DRAWN TO

THE STORY'S CREATIVE TAKE

OF BIBLICAL STORIES.

TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY

TO TELL THOSE STORIES FROM

A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

PERSPECTIVE WAS REALLY

EXCITING.

IT SORT OF MADE IT -- PUT

A DIFFERENT TWIST ON

PROBABLY THE WORLD'S MOST

FAMOUS STORY.

Charlene: RICH

PALUSSO IS ONE OF THE

PROJECT'S PRODUCERS.

HE HOPES "RISEN" CONTINUES

THE BOX OFFICE SUCCESS OF

FAITH-BASED FILMS.

THIS IS A REAL VALID,

STORY-TELLING PERSPECTIVE.

WITH RESEARCH IT SHOWS

127 MILLION AMERICANS WHO

GO TO A CHRISTIAN CHURCH

EVERY WEEK -- THAT SHOWS

THAT FAITH-BASED

STORY-TELLING IS NOT A

NICHE.

IT IS MAINSTREAM.

Charlene: SOME SAY

"RISEN" PICKS UP WHERE THE

2004 BLOCKBUSTER "PASSION

OF THE CHRIST" LEFT OFF.

SOMETHING PRODUCER MICKEY

LIDELL SAYS IS A TALL

ORDER.

OBVIOUSLY, THAT WAS

DONE SO WELL, SO

BEAUTIFUL.

IN EVERY WAY WIT WE WANTED TO

REPEAT THAT HIGH QUALITY

OF FILM-MAKING.

Reporter: AND PALUSSO

HOPES THAT AUDIENCES SEE

"RISEN" AS MORE THAN JUST

ANOTHER STORY ABOUT THE

BIBLE.

I WANT BELIEVERS TO

WALK OUT OF THAT FILM

ENERGIZED AND EXCITED AND

BLOWN AWAY FROM THE OTHER

SIDE OF THE STORY AND

REALLY REFRESHED AND GOING

BACK TO THE SCRIPTURE.

FOR NON-BELIEVERS, I WANT

THEM TO REALLY WONDER, DID

CHRIST REALLY RISE?

MAYBE HE ROSE.

AND START TO THINK ABOUT

AND DIG INTO THE EVIDENCE

THEY HAVE RIGHT IN FRONT

OF THEM.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

John: LOOKS LIKE A

POWERFUL FILM.

AND, PAT, "RISEN" OPENS

THIS FRIDAY IN THEATERS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

Pat: I THINK IT IS

GOING TO BE A BLOCKBUSTER.

IT LOOKS FANTASTIC.

Wendy: I'VE SEEN IT.

Pat: HAVE YOU SEEN

IT?

Wendy: WE GOT A SNEAK

PREVIEW HERE AT REGENT.

IT IS A WORTHWHILE FILM.

CHRISTIANS -- EVERYONE,

ACTUALLY, SHOULD GO SEE

IT.

Pat: WENDY ENDORSES

IT.

Wendy: COMING UP,

MEET THE CUBAN WHO

IMMIGRATED TO AMERICA WITH

JUST $100 SEWN INTO HIS

UNDERWEAR, AND NOW HIS SON

IS A PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE.

RAFAEL CRUZ JOINS US LIVE

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE SENATOR TED CRUZ

POINTS TO HIS DAD, RAFAEL,

AS HIS HERO.

HE IS ALSO THE ONE WHO

TAUGHT HIM EARLY IN LIFE

THE CONCEPT OF LIMITED

GOVERNMENT COMES STRAIGHT

FROM THE BIBLE.

AND NOW THIS CUBAN

IMMIGRANT HAS A MESSAGE

FOR AMERICA.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: HE WAS BORN

IN CUBA IN 1939.

AS A TEENAGER, RAFAEL CRUZ

FACED PRISON AND TORTURE.

AFTER HIS RELEASE, HE

CONVINCED THE GOVERNMENT

TO ALLOW HIM TO LEAVE CUBA

FOR AMERICA ON A COLLEGE

SCHOLARSHIP.

HE LEFT WITH ONLY $100

SEWN INTO HIS UNDERWEAR BY

HIS MOTHER.

ONCE IN AMERICA, CRUZ

WORKED HARD, STARTED A

FAMILY, AND MOST IMPORTANT

GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST.

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

THE RELIGIOUS ROUNDTABLE

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

ORGANIZATION, MOBILIZING

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

CHRISTIANS TO ELECT RONALD

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

REAGAN.

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

YOUNG TED TOOK IT ALL IN.

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

AND NOW, NEARLY 60 YEARS

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

AFTER COMING TO AMERICA,

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

CRUZ ISSUES A WAKEUP CALL

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

TO THE COUNTRY HE LOVES.

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

IN HIS NEW BOOK "A TIME

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

FOR ACTION," HE DELIVERS A

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

MESSAGE TO PEOPLE OF

FAITH: STEP UP, ENTER THE

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

THE FORCES THREATENING THE

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

MADE AMERICA GREAT.

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

Pat: WELL, HE IS HERE

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH

WITH US.

WITH US.

HE LEARNED LESSONS IN

CUBA, LESSONS THAT AMERICA

MUST LISTEN TO.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "A TIME

FOR ACTION."

AND YOU CAN GET IT

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

RAFAEL CRUZ, THANK YOU FOR

BEING HERE.

IT IS SO GREAT TO BE

WITH YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: YOU ARE LISTED

AS AN EVANGELIST, BUT AS I

READ YOUR STORY, YOU

ACTUALLY RAN A COMPANY

THAT ANALYZED SEISMIC DATA

FOR OIL COMPANIES.

YOU APPARENTLY HAVE AN

AFFINITY FOR MATHEMATICS,

IS THAT RIGHT?

THAT'S RIGHT.

I WAS IN OIL AND GAS

EXPLORATION FOR 25 YEARS.

AND THAT COMPANY BASICALLY

WENT BROKE AND THAT'S WHAT

GOD USED TO GET ME INTO

THE MINISTRY.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

YOU WERE IN CUBA.

WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH

BASTTIESBASTISTA WAS HEAD OF CUBA?

IT WAS A MILITARY

DICTATORSHIP.

IT WAS VERY BRUTAL.

THEY KILLED OVER 20,000

DISSIDENTS.

THEY WOULD ARREST

SOMEBODY, AND TWO OR THREE

DAYS LATER THEY WOULD

APPEAR DEAD ON THE

STREETS.

THAT WAS WHAT SPARKED THE

REVOLUTION.

AND IT STARTED IN THE HIGH

SCHOOLS AND THE

UNIVERSITIES.

THERE WAS THIS YOUNG

CHARISMATIC LEADER TALKING

ABOUT HOPE AND CHANGE.

Pat: THE SAME THING

AS OBAMA?

HIS NAME WAS FIDEL

CASTRO.

WE ALLFORD HIM.

ALL FOLLOWED HIM.

WE DIDN'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

NOBODY KNEW HE WAS

COMMUNIST.

HE PRESENTED HIMSELF AS A

LIBERATER.

Pat: HOW DID WE ALL

GET SO FOOLED BY HIM?

IN YOUR BOOK YOU POINT OUT

HE WAS TRAINED IN RUSSIA?

BUT WE DIDN'T KNOW

THAT.

WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT.

I CAME TO THE U.S.,

LEGALLY ON A STUDENT VISA

IN 1957.

I HAD BEEN IN PRISON AND

TORTURED BECAUSE OF THE

REVOLUTION, BUT I WAS ABLE

TO GET OUT OF CUBA AND

COME TO THIS WONDERFUL

COUNTRY.

AND THEN I WENT BACK IN

'59, AND I WAS ONLY THERE

THREE WEEKS, AND I SAW

THIS MAN CONFISCATING

BACKINPRIVATE PROPERTY.

I GOT OUT OF THERE AS SOON

AS I CAN.

Pat: WHY DIDN'T THE

CUBAN PEOPLE STOP HIM?

WELL, THE CUBAN PEOPLE

WERE FOOLED.

SO MANY PEOPLE ARE FOOLED

WITH COMMUNISM, ABOUT

THINKING EVERYBODY IS THE

SAME.

AND THAT'S NOT TRUE.

YOU HAVE THREE DIFFERENT

CLASSES.

OF COURSE THEY CONFISCATE

ALL OF THE WEALTH, WHICH

IS CONTROLLED BY THE

COMMUNIST PARTY.

SO THEY HAVE ALL OF THE

RICHES.

THEN THEY CREATE THE ARMY,

THE ENFORCERS, AND THEY

EXPLOIT PEOPLE WITH THINGS

LIKE SELLING THINGS IN THE

UNDERGROUND.

AND THEN THE PEOPLE, AND I

WOULD SAY, YES, THEY'RE

EQUAL: THEY'RE ALL EQUALLY

STARVED.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT

TAKING AWAY THEIR WEAPONS?

WERE THE CUBAN PEOPLE

DISARM?

ABSOLUTELY.

BUT HISTORICALLY EVERY

DICTATOR HAS TAKEN AWAY

THE WEAPONS FROM THE

PEOPLE AND THEN USED THEM

AGAINST THE PEOPLE.

STALIN DID IT, HITLER DID

IT, MAO DID IT, AND CASTRO

DID IT.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT HERE

IN THE AMERICA, THERE IS

THIS CRY FROM THE LEFT,

THAT WE MUST DISARM

EVERYBODY.

GUNS ARE CALLING ALL OF CAUSING ALL OF

THE PROBLEMS.

WHEN NEWTON OCCURRED,

HE IMMEDIATELY TRIED TO

PUSH GUN-CONTROL

LEGISLATION.

EVEN WHEN WE HAD THE SAN

BERNARDINO THING,

IMMEDIATELY HE WAS TALKING

ABOUT GUN CONTROL.

IF YOU TAKE AWAY THE GUNS,

THE ONLY GUNS THEY'RE

GOING TO TAKE AWAY IS THE

GUNS FROM THE LAW-ABIDING

CITIZENS.

THE CRIMINALS ARE NOT

GOING TO RELEASE THEIR

GUNS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE

SECOND AMENDMENT WAS

WRITTEN TO PROTECT US

AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT.

Pat: SURE.

WHAT DO YOU SEE THE PARL

PARALLELS BETWEEN THE

UNITED STATES AND CUBA, IF

YOU WANTED TO WARN PEOPLE.

WHAT ACTIONS SHOULD WE BE

TAKING?

WE ARE WHERE WE ARE

PRIMARILY BECAUSE THE

CHURCH HAS BEEN SILENT.

FOR TOO MANY YEARS THE

CHURCH HAS BELIEVED THIS

LIE OF SEPARATION OF

CHURCH AND STATE.

THAT IS NEITHER IN THE

CONSTITUTION, NOR IN THE

DECLARATION.

1962, WHEN PRAYER WAS

TAKEN OUT OF SCHOOLS, THE

CHURCH REMAINED SILENT.

WHEN THE BIBLE WAS TAKEN

OUT OF SCHOOL A YEAR

LATER, IN 1963, THE CHURCH

REMAINED SILENT.

HOW CAN YOU CALL PRAYER A

POLITICAL ISSUE?

HOW CAN YOU CALL BIBLE

STUDY A POLITICAL ISSUE?

BUT THAT'S WHAT THEY DID.

WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT,

TEEN PREGNANCY

SKYROCKETED.

10 YEARS LATER, WHEN

ABORTION WAS LEGALIZED,

THE CHURCH REMAINED

SILENCE.

SAME EXCUSE: IT'S A

POLITICAL ISSUE.

WELL, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE

WHAT WE DESERVE.

JUNE 26th, WHEN WE HAD

THIS DECISION AGAINST

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE BY

THE SUPREME COURT -- I'LL

TELL YOU, THIS HAS BEEN A

WAKEUP CALL.

HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO

REMAIN SILENT?

Pat: WHERE DO YOU SEE

THE FUTURE OF AMERICA

RIGHT NOW?

I AM VERY ENCOURAGED,

PAT.

I AM VERY ENCOURAGED

BECAUSE PRECISELY THAT

DECISION ON JUNE 26th, I

THINK THE DEVIL OVERPLAYED

HIS HAND.

AND THE CHURCH FINALLY HAS

REALIZED WE CAN'T BE

SILENT NO MORE.

IT IS TIME THAT WE DRAW A

LINE IN THE SAND.

PRAISE GOD THAT THERE IS

SO MUCH EMPHASIS ON 2

CHRONICLES 14.

WE MUST START ON OUR KNEES

IN PRAYER.

BUT 2 CHRONICLES 14 IS

ONLY HALF OF THE EQUATION.

THE SECOND HALF SAYS WE

ARE AMBASSADORS FOR

CHRIST.

THAT MEANS WE'RE GOD'S

REPRESENTATIVES HERE ON

EARTH.

WE'RE GOD'S HANDS.

WE'RE GOD'S FEET.

WE'RE GOD'S MOUTHPIECE.

AND JESUS SAID, SHOUT IT

FROM THE MOUNTAINTOPS.

Pat: YOUR SON HAS

BEEN AN OUTSPOKEN ADVOCATE

OF CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE REST

OF THEM SHOULD DO?

SHOULD THEY ALL SPEAK OUT?

ABSOLUTELY.

MY SON SAID THE OTHER DAY,

A MAN WHO DOES NOT START

HIS DAY ON HIS KNEES IS

NOT FIT TO SIT IN THE OVAL

OFFICE.

IF THE FOUNDATIONS ARE

RESTORED, WHAT CAN THE

RIGHTEOUS DO?

WE MUST RETURN TO THE

BIBLICAL, CONSTITUTIONAL

FOUNDATIONS THAT THIS

COUNTRY WAS BUILT UPON.

OTHERWISE THIS COUNTRY

WILL BE DESTROYED.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU

THINK OF THE DEBATE THEY

ARE HAVING?

IT IS SAID THAT ALL OF

THESE DISCUSSIONS AND ALL

OF THESE LABELS ARE JUST

DISTRACTING FROM THE

ISSUES.

ALL IT IS IS DISTRACTIONS.

WE NEED TO BE TALKING

ABOUT THE ISSUES THAT ARE

FACING AMERICA, WHICH ARE

VERY, VERY SERIOUS.

LOOK AT THE TRAGIC DEATH

OF JUSTICE SCALIA, ONE OF

THE MOST CONSTITUTIONALLY

SOUND JUSTICES WE'VE EVER

HAD.

AND THIS COULD TILT THE

BALANCE OF THE COURT.

LIKE YOU SAID EARLIER

TODAY, THIS COULD BE

SOMETHING THAT WOULD

AFFECT AMERICA FOR THE

NEXT 30 YEARS.

WE DON'T HAVE 30 YEARS,

PAT.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING

TO FORCE US TO GO ALONG

WITH AN OBAMA NOMINEE,

WHICH WILL TILT THE COURT

LIBERAL.

AND THE REPUBLICANS NEED

TO STAND FIRM AGAINST IT.

THEY'VE GOT TO HOLD UP

UNTIL THEY CAN GET

SOMEBODY WHO IS A SOLID

CONSERVATIVE.

WELL, ABSOLUTELY.

AND, ACTUALLY, FOR THE

LAST 80 YEARS, NO NOMINEE

FOR THE SUPREME COURT HAS

BEEN CONFIRMING THE LAST

YEAR OF THE ELECTION.

WE HAVE AN ELECTION IN

LESS THAN A YEAR.

WE NEED TO LET THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE SPEAK.

IF THE DEMOCRATS WIN AND

WANT TO APPOINT SOMEBODY,

LET THEM WIN THE ELECTION

AND THEN THEY WILL HAVE

THE OPPORTUNITY TO APPOINT

SOMEONE.

THE BALANCE OF THE COURT

CANNOT BE TILTED IN A

LAME-DUCK YEAR.

IT IS JUST NOT DONE.

Pat: WELL, IT IS

GREAT WISDOM.

RAFAEL, I WISH WE HAD A

LOT MORE TIME TO TALK WITH

YOU.

HIS BOOK, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, IS CALLED "A

TIME FOR ACTION."

THIS IS THE FATHER OF TED

CRUZ, WHO IS ONE OF THE

LEADING CANDIDATES RIGHT

NOW FOR THE REPUBLICAN

NOMINATION FOR PRESIDENT.

THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

IT IS CALLED "A TIME FOR

ACTION."

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU, PAT.

IT IS SUCH A PLEASURE AND

AN HONOR TO BE WITH YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: MINE AS WELL.

WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, A

STORY OF EXTREME

FORGIVENESS, TAKEN

STRAIGHT FROM THE

HEADLINES.

YES, I LOST MY

GRANDFATHER.

AND YES, OTHER PEOPLE LOST

THEIR LIVES.

HATE BROUGHT US HERE, BUT

LOOK WHERE LOVE IS GOING

TO TAKE US.

Wendy: SEE HOW THE

SHOOTINGS IN SOUTH

CAROLINA PARKED A

NATIONWIDE MOVEMENT SO

THAT HATE WON'T WIN.

Pat: LAST JUNE THE

WORLD WAS SHOCKED WHEN A

STRANGER OPENED FIRE AT A

BIBLE STUDY AT AN HISTORIC

BLACK CHURCH IN

CHARLESTON, SOUTH

CAROLINA.

NINE PEOPLE WERE KILLED.

THE VICTIMS' FAMILIES AND

THE MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH

DID NOT RESPOND WITH HATE.

INSTEAD, THEY EXTENDED

EXTRAORDINARY FORGIVENESS

THROUGH A MOVEMENT CALLED

"HATE WON'T WIN."

*

THIS IS CHARLESTON,

SOUTH CAROLINA, WHERE

REMNANTS OF THE PAST

LINGER ON EVERY CORNER.

IT IS HOME TO MORE THAN

400 CHURCHES, AND THEY ARE

SYMBOLS OF FAITH EDGING

THROUGH THE HORIZON.

CHARLESTON IS REFERRED

TO AS THE HOLY CITY SIMPLY

BECAUSE OF ITS NUMBER OF

CHURCHES.

DURING THE DAYS OF THE

AMERICAN REVOLUTION AND

SUCH, IT WAS CONSIDERED A

PLACE OF RELATIVE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR

GROUPS SUCH AS THE FRENCH

HUGAHUGANAUTS, THE CATHOLICS,

AND EVEN THE JEWS.

Reporter: AND THERE

IS AN A AND E CHURCH,

WHO'S HISTORY STRETCHES

BACK TO THE TIME OF

SLAVERY.

THE CONGREGATION SETTLED

HERE IHERE IN THE 1960s,

ADVOCATING CIVIL RIGHTS

LEADERS, LIKE MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR.

OUR SLOGAN IS NOT BURN,

BABY, BURN.

MY SLOGAN IS BUILD, BABY,

BUILD.

ORGANIZE, BABY, ORGANIZE.

HE TOLD THE AUDIENCE, I

BELIEVE CONSISTENTLY IN

NON-VIOLENCE.

FROM A MORAL POINT OF

VIEW, THIS IS THE WAY.

FROM A PRACTICAL POINT OF

VIEW, THIS ISN'T THE WAY.

Reporter: BROTHER

EMMANUEL LISTENED, AND

THROUGH THE YEARS THEY

LIVED AND PREACHED IN

LOVE, ACTING AS AGENTS OF

PEACE IN TIMES OF

DISUNITY.

THEN HATE CHALLENGED THEIR

RESOLVE.

ALL UNITS RESPONDING.

Reporter: ON JUNE 17,

2015, MEMBERS OF MOTHER

EMMANUEL WELCOMED A

STRANGER INTO THEIR

WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE

STUDY.

AN HOUR LATER, THAT

STRANGER OPENED FIRE.

THIS IS INCIDENT 10,

INCIDENT 10.

I'VE GOT SEVERAL

VICTIMS.

THERE IS AN ACTIVE SHOOTER

AND MULTIPLE PEOPLE DOWN.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

MEN IN THE BIBLE STUDY WAS

REVEREND DANIEL SIMMONS,

SR., A CHURCH MEMBER AND

BELOVED GRANDFATHER OF

FOUR.

MY DAD CALLED ME, I

MIGHT BE GOING TO

CHARLESTON.

THERE WAS A SHOOTING AT

YOUR GRANDFATHER'S CHURCH.

I GOT HOME, AND TURNED ON

THE SCENE, AND IT WAS

BREAKING NEWS.

I WAS WATCHING AND PRAYING

ALL NIGHT.

WE REALLY DIDN'T WANT THAT

TO BE HIM.

Reporter: DANIEL

SIMMONS WAS A VIETNAM WAR

VET AND FOURTH GENERATION

PREACHER.

HE ANSWERED TO THE NAME

DAN, BUT THE FOLKS KNEW

HIM AS SUPER SIMMONS.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS A

VERY STRONG INDIVIDUAL.

HE WAS VERY STRONG-WILLED.

AND IT WAS HARD TO

CONVINCE HIM OF ANYTHING

THAT HE DIDN'T ALREADY

KNOW.

IN THE SAME RESPECT, I

WOULD SAY HE WAS VERY

STRONG IN HIS FAITH.

ANIN HIS HOME, THERE WAS A

STACK OF SERMONS THAT HE

HAD WRITTEN OUT.

HAD HAD A SERMON FOR

ANYTHING YOU COULD THINK

OF.

HE LOVED A AND E CHURCH.

I DON'T THINK HE WOULD

HAVE PREFERRED TO BE ANY

OTHER PLACE, KNOWING HOW

MUCH HE LOVED TO STUDY THE

BIBLE.

AT 9:05 THIS EVENING,

WE RECEIVED A CALL OF A

SHOOTING THAT OCCURRED AT

THE CHURCH HERE ON CALHOUN

STREET.

THERE WERE EIGHT DECEASED

INDIVIDUALS INSIDE OF THE

CHURCH.

Reporter: BUT THE

NINTH VICTIM, ALOTTA'S

GRANDFATHER, WAS STILL

BREATHING.

HE SUFFERED MULTIPLE

GUNSHOT WOUNDS AND WAS

RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL.

AS SHE WAITED TO HEAR IF

HE HAD MADE IT THROUGH

SURGERY, THE REALITY OF

WHAT HAD HAPPENED BEGAN TO

SINK IN.

THE POLICE ARE STILL

LOOKING FOR THE SHOOTER.

HE IS DESCRIBED AS A

CLEAN-SHAVEN, WHITE MALE

IN HIS EARLY 20s.

THE ONLY REASON SOMEONE

COULD WALK INTO A CHURCH

AND SHOOT PEOPLE PRAYING

IS OUT OF HATE.

THE DEPARTMENT OF

JUSTICE HAS OPENED A

HATE-CRIME INVESTIGATION

INTO THIS SHOOTING

INCIDENT.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS

HAPPENED.

THEY ARE GOD'S PEOPLE.

I WANTED HA HIM TO BE ABLE TO

SURVIVE THIS SITUATION.

I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO

JUST TALK TO HIM ONE MORE

TIME.

Reporter: HOURS

LATER, ALANA GOT ANOTHER

CALL: HER GRANDFATHER

DIDN'T MAKE IT.

AND EIGHT VICTIMS BECAME

NINE.

I WAS DEVASTATED TO

LOSE SOMEONE TO A RACE

CRIME LIKE THAT.

ESPECIALLY IN THE MIDDLE

OF PRAYER.

IT MAKES YOU ANGRY TO

THINK THAT WE'RE STILL IN

THAT SAME PLACE OF HATRED

THAT WE WERE YEARS AND

YEARS AGO.

Reporter: THE

SUSPECTED GUNMAN HAS BEEN

IDENTIFIED AT 21-YEAR-OLD

DYLANN ROOF, HE WAS

CAPTURED 12 HOURS AFTER

OPENING FIRE ON AN

HISTORIC BLACK CHURCH.

THE ONLY THING THAT I

COULD PRAY FOR WAS PEACE

FOR MY FAMILY AND FOR THE

CITY.

RACIAL TENSIONS RISE, AND

THE COMMUNITY IS DIVIDED.

THAT'S WHAT I EXPECTED.

AND I WILL TELL YOU,

THERE IS A LOT OF PRAYER

IN THIS STATE.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE ALL OF

US TRY AND LIFT THESE NINE

FAMILIES UP IN PRAYER

BECAUSE THEY NEED US.

THE BLOOD OF THE MOTHER

EMMANUEL NINE REQUIRES US

TO WORK.

THE WORLD CANNOT

UNDERSTAND WHY WE'RE NOT

CRYING AT THIS MOMENT, WHY

WE'RE NOT BITTER.

* ALL OF THE DAY, ALL OF

THE DAY *

TWO DAYS AFTER THE

SHOOTING, A BUNCH OF US

MARCHED TO MOTHER

EMMANUEL, AND WE WERE

CLAPPING AND SINGING

SPIRITUALS LIKE, VICTORY

IS MINE, VICTORY IS MINE.

VICTORY TODAY IS MINE.

WE WERE GETTING UP IN THE

CHURCH AND SINGING THESE

SONGS.

WE HEARD THIS FOREIGN

SOUND COMING FROM THE

MIDDLE OF THE STREET.

AND WE TURNED AROUND, AND

THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF

CHARLESTON MADE A CIRCLE

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

STREET, AND DID THE KAD

KADESH, WHICH IS THEIR

HEBREW PRAYER OF THE DEAD,

WHICH WAS SOLIDARITY WITH

US.

Reporter: WITH

EMOTIONS RUNNING HIGH, A

FEW OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS

APPROACHED THE FRONT OF

THE COURTROOM TO CONFRONT

THE MAN WHO HAD MURDERED

THEIR LOVED ONES.

I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO

HOLD HER AGAIN.

BUT I FORGIVE YOU.

I FORGIVE YOU.

AND MY FAMILY FORGIVES.

WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO TAKE

THIS OPPORTUNITY TO REPENT

TO THE ONE WHO MATTERS THE

MOST, CHRIST.

EVERY FIBER IN MY BODY

HURTS, AND I'LL NEVER BE

THE SAME.

BUT MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON

YOU.

I'M CERTAIN THAT AT THE

TIME THAT MY GRANDFATHER

SERVED IN THE ARMY, AND AT

THE TIME THAT HE GREW UP,

HE WAS MISTREATED SIMPLY

BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT HE

LOOKED.

HE NEVER, IN HIS LIFE,

WOULD HAVE BEEN THE KIND

TO HARBOR NEGATIVE

FEELINGS.

HE HAD TO FORGIVE THEM SO

THAT HE COULD GO ON AND

LIVE IN LOVE.

Reporter: AND SHE

KNEW THERE WAS ONLY ONE

WAY SHE COULD TRULY HONOR

HIS MEMORY: BY FORGIVING

HIS KILLER.

ALTHOUGH MY GRANDFATHER

AND THE OTHER PERSONS

DIED, I BEGAN TO SAY THIS

IS PROOF -- EVERYONE'S

PLEA FOR YOUR SOUL IS

PROOF THEY LIVE IN LOVE

AND THEIR LEGACY WILL LIVE

IN LOVE, SO HATE WON'T

WIN.

Reporter: WHAT

STARTED AS A SHOW OF

FORGIVENESS IN A

COURTROOM, HAS NOW BECOME

A MOVEMENT.

IT IS INSPIRING

COMMUNITIES ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY, AND IT IS ALL IN

HONOR OF HER GRANDFATHER.

TO SHOW YOU THAT I CAN

LOVE YOU AND YOU CAN LOVE

ME, AND WE CAN WORK

TOGETHER TO BETTER OUR

COMMUNITY.

THAT'S WHAT "HATE WON'T

WIN" MOVEMENT IS ALL

ABOUT.

I KNOW HE IS LOOKING DOWN

ON HOW WE HAVE CHOSEN TO

LIVE HIS LEGACY, AND HE

WOULD BE VERY, VERY PROUD

OF WHAT WE'RE DOING.

Reporter: WHILE THE

TRAGEDY WITHIN THESE WALLS

WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN,

THE NINE LIVES TAKEN OUT

OF HATE LIVE ON IN THE

HEARTS OF THOSE WHO HAVE

CHOSEN TO LOVE.

ONE THING WE CAN SAY

FOR NOW IS THERE WAS THIS

CITY CALLED CHARLESTON,

WHO REFUSED TO LISTEN TO

THE VOICES OF MADNESS AND

CHOSE WISE COUNSEL AND

HANDLED THE SITUATION WITH

GRACE AND DIGNITY.

KNOWING MY GRANDFATHER,

HE WOULDN'T HAVE HAD IT

ANY OTHER WAY.

YES, I LOST MY

GRANDFATHER.

YES, OTHER PEOPLE LOST

THEIR LIVES.

YES, HATE BROUGHT US HERE,

BUT LOOK WHERE LOVE IS

GOING TO TAKE US.

Pat: IF YOU HAVE

OUGHT AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE

THAT YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER

MIGHT FORGIVE YOU.

WE LOOK TO GOD AND WE

STAND BEFORE GOD, AND WE

SAY, GOD, I'M A SINNER.

GOD, I'VE DONE THINGS TO

BREAK YOUR LAWS.

GOD, I'M SORRY.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

AND WE EXPECT A LOVING

FATHER IN HEAVEN TO

FORGIVE US, BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT WE'VE BEEN TAUGHT BY

JESUS.

FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES,

AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO

TRESPASS AGAINST US.

THE SECOND PART IS JUST AS

REAL.

IF WE ARE NOT WILLING TO

FORGIVE OTHERS, HOW CAN WE

EXPECT A LOVING HEAVENLY

FATHER TO FORGIVE US?

THOSE PEOPLE IN CHARLESTON

HAVE GOT IT RIGHT.

THEY HAVE EVERY REASON TO

BE ANGRY.

OF COURSE THEY'RE HURT.

BUT THIS WILD KID -- WHAT

WAS WRONG WITH HIM?

WAS HE OBSESSED WITH SOME

GLORY OF THE CONFEDERACY?

WHAT WAS GOING ON IN HIS

MIND?

HE WAS OBVIOUSLY MENTALLY

DISTURBED. BUT HOW COULD

HE DO A THING OF THIS

MAGNITUDE?

AND THOSE PEOPLE SUFFERING

AS THEY DID, SUFFERING THE

LOLOSS THAT THEY SUFFERED,

THEIR HEARTS RIPPED OUT

BECAUSE OF GRIEF, GO OUT

AND SAY, OH, NO, YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO MAKE US

OBJECTS OF HATE.

WE'RE GOING TO BE CHILDREN

OF THE LIVING GOD.

WE WILL FORGIVE EVEN AS WE

EXPECT TO BE FORGIVEN.

AND IT'S A GREAT

TESTIMONY.

AND I THINK THE WHOLE

NATION IS ADMIRING AND

GRATEFUL FOR THAT MOTHER

CHURCH IN CHARLESTON,

SOUTH CAROLINA.

> WE HAVE A LITTLE BOOK

CALLED "FORGIVENESS."

IT GIVES SOME PRINCIPLES

IN HERE ABOUT WHAT

FORGIVENESS IS IN THE

BIBLE.

AND WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE IF YOU WANT IT.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO ASK

US FOR ANYTHING.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK

THE LORD.

I FORGIVE HIM JUST AS

YOU'RE GOING TO FORGIVE

ME.

YOU WANT PRAYER?

THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR

SCREEN.

SOMEBODY IS HERE, AND WILL

BE HAPPY TO PRAY WITH YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO CONFESS

SOMETHING, THEY'RE HERE

FOR YOU.

WENDY IS HERE WITH US, AND

WENDY HAS GOT SOMETHING

NEXT.

Wendy: THAT STORY --

I'M SO MOVED.

I USED TO LIVE IN

CHARLESTON, SOUTH

CAROLINA.

IT WAS MY SECOND TV JOB.

AND TO SEE THAT CITY AND

THOSE PEOPLE BE USED TO

TELL THE NATION HOW TO

FORGIVE -- TO SHOW US HOW

TO FORGIVE AND HOW TO

LOVE --

Pat: IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

Wendy: IT MOVES ME

BEYOND WORDS.

BUT, ANYWAY, YOU SAID IT.

> STILL AHEAD, IN THE

1930s, "DONE WITH THE

WIND" WAS THE FIRST MOVIE

TO USE PROFANITY.

I'M HATE TO SEE YOU GO.

WHERE SHALL I GO?

WHAT SHALL I DO?

FRANKLY MY DEAR, I

DON'T GIVE A DAM.

Wendy: OH, MY DEAR,

HEAR HOW YOU CAN PRO

PROFANITY-PROOF THE MOVIES

YOU WATCH IN THE COMFORT

OF YOUR OWN HOME.

Charlene: WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CHRISTIAN ARTISTS TOBY

MACK, KIRK FRANKLIN, AND

ISRAEL AND NEW BREED ALL

EARNED NEW GRAMMY AWARDS.

TOBY MACK'S "THIS IS NOT A

TEST," WON FOR BEST

CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN

MUSIC ALBUM.

KIRK FRANKLIN EARNED THE

AWARD FOR BEST GOSPEL

PERFORMANCE FOR HIS SONG

"WANT TO BE HAPPY."

AND "COVERED, A LIVE IN

ASIA," BY ISRAEL AND NEW

BREED, WON THE GRAMMY FOR

BEST GOSPEL ALBUM.

VANITY, THE '80s POP

SINGER WHO GAVE HERE LIFE

TO CHRIST DIED OF KIDNEY

FAILURE.

SHE WAS THE TOP LEADER OF

VANITY 6, WHICH TOURED

WITH MEGA STAR PRINCE, AND

SHE MADE HER WAY TO

HOLLYWOOD, WHERE SHE

APPEARED IN SEVERAL FILMS.

SHE BATTLED A DRUG

ADDICTION, SUFFERING AN

OVERDOSE IN 1964, WHICH

LEFT HER ON DIALYSIS.

BUT SHE GAVE HER LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST AND LEFT THE

ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY,

GIVING HER TESTIMONY ON

"THE 700 CLUB" AS WELL.

SHE WAS IN CHURCH LAST

SUNDAY AND TOLD THE

CONGREGATION SHE WAS READY

TO GO HOME.

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS

BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE

AT cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: SHE MAY NOT

LOOK LIKE A TOP INVESTOR,

BUT SHE IS.

AND SHE ALSO LIVES

COMFORTABLE AND DEBT-FREE.

HERE IS HOW SHE DOES IT.

Reporter: INVESTING

IN THE STOCK MARKET CAN BE

OVERWHELMING, BUT JEAN

REELING, RETIRED FOR 20

YEARS AND DEBT-FREE, SEEMS

TO HAVE FIGURED IT OUT.

THERE ARE CERTAIN RULES

THAT APPLY TO INVESTING.

IF YOU FOLLOW THOSE, IT

JUST WORKS.

Reporter: BUT JEAN

SAYS THERE IS ANOTHER

REASON HER INVESTMENTS

HAVE BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL.

I GIVE GOD THE CREDIT

BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN GIVING

AND RECEIVING.

AND IT IS JUST A MATTER OF

RECIPROCITY.

Reporter: IT IS A

PRINCIPLE SHE LEARNED

GROWING UP ON HER PARENTS'

FARM.

I SAW THAT YOU PLANTED

SEEDS AND YOU HAVE A

HARVEST.

AND YOU REAP IT.

AND THEN YOU PLANT ANOTHER

SEED.

I LEARNED THEN BY PLANTING

SEEDS OF MONEY, YOU COULD

RECEIVE BENEFITS.

Reporter: JEAN SAW

THAT PRINCIPLE AT WORK IN

HER JOB, HER FINANCES, AND

INVESTMENTS.

BUT FOR HER, IT IS ABOUT

MORE THAN MAKING MONEY.

ON THIS EARTH TO GIVE

TO GOD'S KINGDOM AND

ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO DO IT,

ALSO.

Reporter: ONE OF HER

FAVORITE PLACES TO GIVE IS

CBN.

WHEREVER THERE IS A

TRAGEDY, THERE IS A NEED.

AND "700 CLUB" IS THERE.

THE ONE MORE RECENTLY I'VE

BEEN HEARING ABOUT IS

"ORPHAN'S PROMISE", AND

HOW THEY HELP CHILDREN

AROUND THE WORLD.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE ANYONE

TO BE FAITHFUL TO THE

LORD, TO THE WORK THAT HE

IS DOING, AND HE WILL GIVE

YOU PROMPTINGS OF WHEN YOU

ARE TO GIVE, AND OBEY

THOSE PROMPTINGS, BECAUSE

IT WORKS.

Wendy: IT WORKS.

YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS YOU CAN

TEST GOD.

HE SAYS TEST ME AND SEE IF

I WON'T POUR OUT A

BLESSING K YOU CANNOT

CONTAIN.

WE INVITE YOU TODAY TO

BECOME A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB."

$20 A MONTH IS ALL IT

TAKES TO BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

WHEN YOU DO, THERE IS A

TEACHING CALLED "HEAVEN,

WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR

THOSE WHO LOVE HIM."

THERE ARE REAL-LIFE

STORIES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE

DIED, GONE TO HEAVEN, AND

CAME BACK.

AND WHAT IT WAS LIKE.

THIS IS YOURS WHEN YOU

CALL.

IF YOU'RE ALREADY A CBN

PARTNER, I WOULD LIKE TO

CHALLENGE YOU TO GO UP TO

OUR GOLD LEVEL, JUST $40 A

MONTH.

IF YOU DO THAT, WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE OF

THESE.

IF YOU CAN DO A LITTLE

MORE, LET'S TAKE IT UP TO

THE THOUSAND CLUB LEVEL,

OR HIRE, AND THAT'S JUST

$84 A MONTH.

IF YOU DO $84 A MONTH OR

HIGHER, WE'LL SEND YOU

FIVE OF PAT'S DYNAMIC NEW

TEACHING.

ONE FOR YOU AND THEN YOU

CAN BLANKET YOUR WHOLE

NEIGHBORHOOD, RIGHT, PAT?

Pat: CARPET YOUR

NEIGHBORHOOD.

ALL RIGHT.

> COMING UP, WE'RE GOING

TO "BRING IT ON."

ONE OF OUR VIEWERS WANTS

TO KNOW, IS SAYING THE

SINNER'S PRAYER MORE THAN

ONCE SHOWING A LACK OF

Wendy: DO YOU LOVE

MOVIES?

I DO.

BUT DO YOU HATE THE

PROFANITY AND SEXUAL

CONTEXT?

IF YOU DO, YOU'LL LOVE

USING THIS SERVICE.

CAYLEB KINSLO EXPLAINS HOW

IT WORKS.

Reporter: "GONE WITH

THE WIND" WAS ONE OF THE

FIRST FILMS TO USE

PROFANITY IN THE 1930s.

WHERE WILL I GO?

WHAT SHALL I DO?

FRANKLY, MY DEAR, I

DON'T GIVE A DAMN.

TIMES HAVE CERTAINLY

CHANGED.

AC CONSIDERING TO THE

GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD

RECORDS, THE OSCAR

NOMINATED FILM "THE WOLF

OF WALL STREET" DROPPED

306 "F" BOMBS.

THERE ARE POTENTIALLY

GREAT MOVIES, BUT

OFFENSIVE CONTENT IS A

TURNOFF.

NOW A SERVICE CALLED "FILTFIT

ANGEL" IS HERE TO HELP.

YOU CAN BUY A MOVIE FOR

$20, AND YOU CAN TELL IT

BACK FOR $19.

SO YOUR WATCHING RIGHT FOR

THE MOVIE IS A DOLLAR.

BUT THE MOST UNIQUE THING

IS YOU CAN WATCH THE MOVIE

HOW FAR, AS WE SAY, THE

BLEEP YOU WANT.

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REMOVE

SEX, NUDITY, GRAPHIC

VIOLENCE.

AND NOW YOU CAN WATCH

FAVORITE MOVIES, TV SHOWS,

MINUS THE BAD LANGUAGE.

CATEGORIES ALLOW YOU TO

FILTER WHAT YOU DON'T

LIKE.

YOU CAN EVEN TARGET

LANGUAGE AND TAKE OUT

SPECIFIC WORDS YOU MAY

FIND OFFENSIVE.

AND ONCE YOU MAKE YOUR

SLEC, ALSELECTION, ALL OF YOUR

CONTENT YOU VIEW WILL HAVE

THOSE SETTINGS.

WORDS AND IMAGES HAVE AN

IMPACT.

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR

CONTENT.

FOR CBN NEWS, I'M CAYLEB

KINSLO, AND THIS IS

"DIGITAL DOW DOWNLOAD."

Wendy: IF YOU DID

THAT WITH SOME MOVIES,

TOOK OUT ALL OF THE

PROFANITY, YOU WOULDN'T BE

HEARING ANYTHING.

YOU WOULD BE WATCHING A

SILENT MOVIE.

> THIS VIEWER SAYS, "IS

SAYING THE SINNER'S PRAYER

MORE THAN ONCE SHOWING A

LACK OF FAITH?"

Pat: NOT REALLY.

YOU WANT TO REAFFIRM YOUR

COMMITMENT TO THE LORD.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO GET

SAVED 100 TIMES.

NO, NO.

WHEN YOU COME TO THE LORD,

IT IS FOR KEEPS.

IT IS LIKE I'VE BEEN

ADOPTED INTO THE FAMILY OF

GOD.

ONCE.

HE DIED AND HE DIED ONCE.

SO DON'T KEEP FINDING THE

LORD.

DON'T KEEP GETTING SAVED.

DON'T KEEP GOING FORWARD

AT MEETINGS.

NO.

YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THIS.

YOU WANT TO SAY, I'M A

CHILD OF GOD AND I'M GOING

TO LIVE THAT WAY.

Wendy: RACHEL SAYS,

"WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T

COME TO A POINT WHERE I

OBEY GOD 100%?"

Pat: I WONDER WHAT IS

GOING ON IN THAT CHILD'S

LIFE.

I GET A FEELING SHE IS

HAVING SOME RELATIONSHIP

SHE IS A LITTLE ASHAMED

OF, THAT SHE KEEPS SAYING

YES WHEN SHE KNOWS SHE IS

TO KEEP SAYING NO.

LOOK, ONLY GOD KNOWS WHAT

IS IN YOUR HEART.

BUT THE TRUTH IS, WE WANT

TO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO

PLEASE HIM.

I THINK THAT'S WHERE OUR

THRUST SHOULD BE, I WANT

TO PLEASE GOD.

LET'S LEAVE IT AT THAT.

Wendy: GRACE WRITES,

"I FEEL THAT I'M NOT

ALWAYS SORRY ENOUGH FOR MY

SINS OR CAN EVEN REMEMBER

ALL OF THEM.

DOES THAT MEAN THE LORD

DOESN'T FORGIVE ME?

HOW DO I GET TO WHERE I'M

TRULY SORRY AND HATE MY

SINS?"

HER NAME IS GRACE.

Pat: GRACE, TAKE IT,

UNMERITED FAVOR.

THEY HAD A GROUP OF PEOPLE

IN THE OLD DAYS, WHO WERE

CALLED FLATULITES, AND

THEY BEAT THEMSELVES.

MARTIN LUTHER WAS WALKING

ON HIS KNEES TO SHOW SOME

KIND OF PENANCE.

THERE IS NO AMOUNT OF

PSYCSACRIFICE THAT YOU AND I

CAN DO THAT WILL GET YOU

TO HEAVEN.

IT IS THE SACRIFICE OF

JESUS.

SO THE FACT THAT YOU'RE

SORRY OR NOT SORRY OR MORE

SORRY -- IT'S AN EXERCISE

IN FUTILITY.

DON'T DO IT.

JUST SAY, I'M SORRY I'VE

SINNED, AND I WANT TO TAKE

HIS FORGIVENESS.

Wendy: IT IS --

PEOPLE MAKE IT SO

DIFFICULT.

Pat: WE THINK WE'VE

GOT TO EARN IT.

WE'VE GOT TO PUNISH

OURSELVES TO BE WORTHY

WITH GOD.

YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO GET

WORTHY, SO DONE EVEN TRY.

I'M WORTHY BECAUSE JESUS

DIED FOR ME.

Wendy: AMEN.

BOBBY SAYS, "IF A

PERSON IS NOT CAUGHT UP IN

THE RAPTURE, WILL THERE BE

ANOTHER CHANCE TO BE SAVED

AND GO TO HEAVEN.

I NEED THE RIGHT WORDS TO

SAY TO MY EX-HUSBAND.

I STILL LOVE THIS MAN, AND

I WANT HIM TO KNOW WHAT

REAL JOY AND HAPPINESS HE

CAN FEEL WHEN TRUSTING THE

LORD."

Pat: WHEN THE LORD

COMES BACK, HE IS GOING TO

COME BACK TO TAKE THOSE

WHO BELONG TO HIM.

AND THEY WILL BE CAUGHT UP

TOGETHER WITH HIM IN THE

AIR.

LOOK, HERE IS THE DEAL:

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE,

YOU WILL ANSWER FOR THE

DEEDS THAT YOU HAVE DONE

IN THE FLESH.

YOU KNOW?

AND IF YOU COME TO JESUS

CHRIST, YOU CAN BE

FORGIVEN OF THE DEEDS YOU

HAVE DONE IN THE FLESH

BECAUSE HE WILL PARDON

YOU.

BUT IF YOU HAVE NOT

ACCEPTED HIM AS SAVIOR,

YOU MUST GIVE AN ACCOUNT,

TOLCOLD TURKEY, FOR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE.

THAT'S CALLED THE JUDGMENT

SEAT OF GOD.

AND IT'S GOING TO BE

HORRIBLE BECAUSE MOST

EVERYBODY AT THAT GREAT

WHITE THRONE WILL BE

THROWN INTO HELL, AND IT

WILL BE A TORMENT FOREVER.

THAT'S AWFUL.

GOD IS OFFERING US PARDON.

IF YOUR HUSBAND WANTS TO

PLAY GAMES AND SAY, I

DON'T BELIEVE IN ALL OF

THAT MUMBO JUMBO, OKAY,

THAT'S FINE.

WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE TO

GIVE ACCOUNT FOR

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE,

FROM THE MOMENT YOU WERE

BORN TO THE MOMENT YOU

DIED, FOR EVERY ACT, AND

SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Wendy: OLIVIA WRITES

IN, "I HAVE TO AGREE WITH

YOU, PAT, ON THE SUBJECT

WHY WOULD ANY GIRL WANT TO

JOIN AN EXTREMELY

AGGRESSIVE LEVEL OF THE

MILITARY.

AS THE MOM OF TWO YOUNG

GIRLS, I GET NERVOUS WHEN

I HEAR ABOUT WOMEN BEING

DRAFTED IN THE FUTURE.

WHY CAN'T A WOMAN SAY

COMBAT WILL BE TOO MUCH

FOR HER?"

Pat: SHE CAN AND SHE

SHOULD.

GOD HAS PREPARED YOU TO BE

A NURTURING MOTHER, TO BE

A WIFE, TO BE A HELP MAID.

THAT'S YOUR ROLE.

SO DO THAT.

HE DIDN'T MAKE YOU TO WEAR

COMBAT BOOTS AND CARRY AN

M-16 AND SHOOT DOWN THE

ENEMY.

IT DOESN'T HURT IF YOU

LEARN HOW.

I WOULD BE HAPPY TO HAVE

MY DAUGHTERS LEARN HOW TO

SHOOT GUNS --

Wendy: ALL OF THE

GIRLS IN ISRAEL HAVE TO GO

AND CARRY THE BIG M-16s.

Pat: OH, YEAH.

I KNOW SOME STORIES ABOUT

THAT, TOO, THAT I CAN'T

SAY ON TELEVISION.

WHY CAN'T WOMEN EMBRACE

THE ROLE OF WIFE AND

MOTHER?

WHY NOT?

RAISING THE NEXT

GENERATION IS A VERY

IMPORTANT FUNCTION.

IF ALL OF THE WOMEN ARE

AMAZONS AND THEY'RE OUT

WITH MUSCLES AND M-16s

FIGHTING, WHO IS GOING TO

TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS?

SOMEBODY HAS GOT TO TAKE

CARE OF THE NEXT

GENERATION.

THEY'VE GOT TO TEACH THEM,

TRAIN THEM, NURTURE THEM.

DON'T DESPISE YOUR

CALLING.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM MATTHEW

6: "FOR IF YOU FORGIVE

OTHER PEOPLE WHEN THEY SIN

AGAINST YOU, YOUR HEAVENLY

FATHER WILL ALSO FORGIVE

YOU."

WELL, MEET A MAN WHO SPENT

15 YEARS IN PRISON FOR A

CRIME HE DIDN'T COMMIT.

THAT'S GOING TO BE ON

TOMORROW'S SHOW.

> FOR WENDY AND ALL OF

US, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
