The 700 Club - February 18, 2016

Relationship expert Carrie Lloyd talks about dealing with the ups and downs in our connections with others. Plus, a car accident leaves Shelley with pain and limited mobility in her shoulder that doctors say can only be remedied with surgery. Read Transcript


Wendy: CANCER

TREATMENT --

IT IS A PAINLESS

PROCESS --

Wendy: -- WITHOUT

CHEMOTHERAPY.

PLUS, A FIREFIGHTER

DISLOCATES HER SHOULDER,

AND NOTHING COULD END HER

PAIN.

JUST PUTTING ON MY

SHIRT IN THE MORNING WAS A

TASK.

Wendy: WATCH THIS

HERO GET HEALED ON A

SUNDAY MORNING.

I WAS JUST BACK AT IT.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

YOU KNOW, THE AIRWAVES AND

THE NEWSPAPERS ARE FULL OF

REPORTS NOW THAT THE

REPUBLICANS ARE COMMITTING

SUICIDE.

BRETT BARNES IS SAYING

THEY'RE GOING TO LOSE THE

ELECTION.

THE NASTINESS HAS BEEN

INTRODUCED INTO THIS

ELECTION BY NONE OTHER

THAN DONALD TRUMP.

THERE WAS A THING, WHEN I

DID MY LITTLE POLITICAL

THING.

WE STUCK TO THE 11th

COMMANDMENT, THOU SHALT

SPEAK ILL OF NO FELLOW

REPUBLICAN.

YOU CANNOT HAVE PEOPLE

SHOOTING AT EACH OTHER,

VICIOUSLY, AND THINK THAT

WON'T GO INTO THE GENERAL

ELECTION.

AND IT WILL POISON THE

WATERS FOR YOUR ULTIMATE

NOMINEE.

SO I JUST THINK WHEN WE

SEE CHARGES OF LIES,

THREATS OF LAWSUITS,

ALLEGATIONS OF DIRTY

TRICKS -- THE BRUTAL

BATTLE FOR VOTES, THE RACE

IS ON IN THE CRUCIAL SOUTH

CAROLINA PRIMARY.

BUT IT WILL ALSO BE OVER

ON SATURDAY, AT LEAST THIS

PHASE OF IT.

AND THEN VOTERS WILL HAVE

THEIR SAY THAT DAY.

AND THEN THEY GO ON TO

VARIOUS MAJOR, WHAT THEY

CALL SUPER SATURDAYS, AND

SUPER TUESDAYS, AND SUPER

WHATEVERS.

SOUTH CAROLINA WILL BE

KEY.

WENDY?

Wendy: PAT, DONALD

TRUMP IS STILL THE CLEAR

LEADER IN THE POLLS IN THE

STATE, BUT MANY VOTERS ARE

STILL UNDECIDED.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THE

STORY.

Heather: IN SOUTH

CAROLINA, THE ATTACKS

BETWEEN THE TOP REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATES HAVE ESCALATED.

I DO ATTACK PEOPLE WHEN

I'M ATTACKED.

Heather: DONALD TRUMP

AND TED CRUZ ARE SPARRING

OVER THIS ABORTION AD.

I AM PRO-CHOICE IN

EVERY RESPECT.

Heather: TRUMP SAYS

THE AD IS FILLED WITH

LIES, AND HAS THREATENED

TO SUE CRUZ.

CRUZ SAID FINE, GO AHEAD,

AND DARED TRUMP TO SUE

HIM.

AND HE ALSO PROMISED TO

RUN THE AD MORE

FREQUENTLY.

WHAT DID YOU THINK WHEN

YOU ACTUALLY GOT THE

LETTER?

I MUST CONFESS, I

LAUGHED OUTSIDE.

Heather: MARCO RUBIO

SCORED A BIG WIN,

RECEIVING THE COVETED

ENDORSEMENT OF SOUTH

CAROLINA NIKKI HALEY.

IN MY CAMPAIGN FOR

PRESIDENT TODAY, I GOT THE

ENDORSEMENT OF A GOVERNOR

OF INDIAN DESCENT, WHO

ENDORSED THE PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE OF CUBAN DECENT,

AND TOMORROW WILL BE

CAMPAIGNING AGAINST A

AFRICAN-AMERICAN

REPUBLICAN SENATOR.

Heather: BUT POLLS

SHOW TRUMLY WITH THE

ENDORSEMENT THAT COUNTS

THE MOST WITH THE VOTERS

IN THE STATE.

TRUMP IS THE FIRST CHOICE

WITH 34% OF LIKELY

REPUBLICAN VOTERS IN SOUTH

CAROLINA, FOLLOWED BY CRUZ

AT 16%, AND RUBIO AT 13%.

BUT THINGS LOOK DIFFERENT

IN THE BIGGER PICTURE

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

THE LATEST NBC POLL SHOWS

CRUZ LEADING TRUMP

NATIONALLY.

HE IS UP BY 28%, COMPARED

TO TRUMP AT 26%, AND RUBIO

WITH 17%.

CRUZ'S LEAD IS WITHIN THE

MARGIN OF ERROR, SO THE

RACE IS STATISTICALLY A

TIE, BUT IT COULD BE AN

ININDICATION THAT CRUZ HAS

MOMENTUM ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE,

HILLARY CLINTON AND BERNIE

SANDERS ARE GEARING UP FOR

THE NEVADA CAUCUS ON

SATURDAY.

SANDERS IS WORKING TO

RAISE HIS SUPPORT AMONG

BLACKS AND HISPANICS, AND

CLINTON IS ALSO COURTING

MINORITIES IN AN EFFORT TO

UNDERSET SANDERS'

POPULARITY WITH YOUNGER

VOTERS.

MANY VOTERS MAY DECIDE AT

THE LAST MINUTE, AND, AS

ALWAYS, THEY WILL HAVE THE

FINAL SAY.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IF I WERE IN

CHARGE OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY, PARTICULARLY, I

WOULD LIMIT THESE DEBATES.

THESE THINGS ARE

SELF-INFLICTING WOUNDS

THAT ARE JUST TOTALLY

UNNECESSARY.

THEY OUGHT TO HAVE THREE

OR FOUR MAX, AND THAT'S

IT.

BUT, ANYHOW, IT GOES ON.

AND DONALD TRUMP HAS TOLD

CBN NEWS HE WOULD STOP

TAXPAYERS' MONEY FROM

GOING TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IF HE WAS

ELECTED PRESIDENT.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: IN AN EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW WITH CBN'S DAVID

BRODY, HE SAYS HE WOULD

SIGN A BILL FROM CONGRESS

THAT WOULD DEFUND THE

NATION'S LARGEST ABORTION

PROVIDER.

HE MADE THAT DECORATION TO

DAVID IN SOUTH CAROLINA ON

WEDNESDAY.

AS A PRESIDENT TRUMP,

IF A BILL WAI CAME TO YOUR

DESK THAT WOULD DEFUND

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, YOU

WOULD SIGN THAT.

YES.

AS LONG AS THEY SUPPORT

ABORTION, I WOULD DEFUND

THAT.

THEY DO A LOT OF GOOD

THINGS, BUT AS LONG AS

THEY'RE INVOLVED WITH THE

ABORTION -- THEY'RE

INVOLVED.

SOME PEOPLE SAY IT IS 3%

OF THEIR WORK, SOME PEOPLE

SAY IT IS 10% -- I HEAR

ALL DIFFERENT PERCENTAGES,

BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER.

AS FAR AS THEY'RE INVOLVED

WITH ABORTION, AS FAR AS

I'M CONCERNED, FORGET IT.

BUT -- AND I WOULDN'T FUND

THEM, REGARDLESS.

BUT THEY DO DO GOOD WORK.

I'VE HAD WOMEN TELL ME

THEY DO SOME EXCELLENT

WORK.

SO I THINK YOU HAVE TO

ALSO PUT THAT INTO

ACCOUNT.

BUT I WOULD DEFUND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD BECAUSE OF

THEIR VIEW AND THE FACT

THAT THEY WORK ON

ABORTION.

John: TRUMP'S CLOSEST

RIVAL, TED CRUZ, SAYS

TRUMP CAN'T BE TRUSTED ON

THE ABORTION ISSUE BECAUSE

OF HIS PRO-CHOICE PAST AND

BECAUSE OF SAYING NICE

THINGS ABOUT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

AND WE'LL HAVE AN

INTERVIEW WITH TRUMP AT

REGENT.

AND WE'LL HAVE THAT NEXT

THURSDAY.

> PRESIDENT OBAMA'S STOP

IN CUBA IS PART OF A

BROADER PLANNED TRIP TO

LATIN-AMERICA.

TED CRUZ AND MARCO RUBIO

OPPOSE THE VISIT.

BOTH SENATORS HAVE TIES TO

CUBA, AND THEY WARN THE

TRIP COULD HAVE DAMAGING

REPERCUSSIONS FOR THE

UNITED STATES.

> PRESIDENT OBAMA WON'T

BE ATTENDING THE FUNERAL

OF THE LATE SUPREME COURT

JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA.

THE PRESIDENT AND FIRST

LADY WILL GO TO THE

SUPREME COURT ON FRIDAY

AND PAY THEIR RESPECTS.

MEANWHILE, VICE PRESIDENT

BIDEN AND HIS WIFE PLAN TO

GO TO THE FUNERAL.

THE WHITE HOUSE DIDN'T SAY

IF HE HAD A SCHEDULE

PROBLEM THAT WOULD KEEP

HIM FROM THE FUNERAL.

> THEY ARE SEARCHING FOR

HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE

MATERIAL STOLEN NEAR

BOSRA.

THERE ARE CONCERNS THAT

ISIS DO USE IT TO BUILD A

DEADLY WEAPON.

IT WAS STOLEN FROM THE

U.S. OIL AND GAS COMPANY.

AND EXPOSURE TO THE

MATERIAL COULD CAUSE

PERMANENT INJURY WITHIN

MINUTES.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAID

IT KNEW ABOUT THE REPORTS

BUT SEES NO EVIDENCE THAT

ISIS OR OTHER TERRORISTS

GROUPS HAVE ACQUIRED IT.

> COUCH POTATOES HAVE A

HIGHER RISK OF DYING

YOUNGER THAN PEOPLE WHO

ARE MORE ACTIVE AND MOVE

ABOUT.

SO ONCE YOU MAKE THE

DECISION TO GET OFF YOUR

DUFF, WHAT'S THE BEST TYPE

OF EXERCISE TO PROLONG

YOUR LIFE?

HERE IS CBN'S LORI JOHNSON

WITH WHAT THE RESEARCH

SHOWS.

Lori: IN A STUDY OF

MORE THAN A HALF MILLION

ADULTS PUBLISHED IN THE

JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN

MEDICAL ASSOCIATION

REVEALS THE GOVERNMENT'S

GUIDELINES ON EXERCISE

DON'T GO FAR ENOUGH.

ALTHOUGH PEOPLE WHO

FOLLOWED THE RECOMMENDED

TWO AND A HALF HOURS A

WEEK OF MODERATE EXERCISE

LIKE WALKING DID HAVE A

31% LESS CHANCE OF DYING

THAN THOSE WHO DIDN'T

EXERCISE.

PEOPLE WHO EXERCISED SEVEN

AND A HALF HOURS A WEEK

HAD A 39% LESS CHANCE OF

DEATH THAN NON-EXERCISERS.

THE RESEARCH SHOWS

SPRINKLING IN SOME

VIGOROUS EXERCISE, LIKE

RUNNING, ADDS EVEN MORE

YEARS TO YOUR LIFE.

PEOPLE WHO SPENT ONE-THIRD

OF THEIR EXERCISE TIME IN

STRENUOUS ACTIVITY, WERE

9% LESS LIKELY TO DIE

PREMATURELY THAN PEOPLE

WHO EXERCISE THE SAME

AMOUNT OF TIME, BUT ONLY

MODERATELY.

THOSE WHO SPENT MORE THAN

A THIRD OF THEIR EXERCISE

TIME IN STRENUOUS

ACTIVITY, HAD A 13%

REDUCTION IN MORTALITY.

61-YEAR-OLD MARK SISSEN,

BEHIND THE HEALTH BLOG

"MARK'S DAILY APPLE," SAYS

IT HAS OTHER BENEFITS.

THAT LITTLE BURST OF

ACTIVE CAN HAVE SOME

DRAMATIC EFFECTS ON ALL

ASPECTS OF YOUR HEALTH.

FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN

TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT, FOR

INSTANCE, AND WHO ARE

PLATITUDE OR STALLED, THAT

SPRINT WORKOUT COULD BE

SORT OF THE BREAKTHROUGH.

Heather: HE SAYS

MUSCLE-BUILDING EXERCISE,

LIKE PUSHUPS, SITUPS, AND

WEIGHT BUILDING, COULD

PREVENT BROKEN BONES.

THE TENSION ON THE

MUSCLE CREATES BONE

DENSITY.

Heather: SO WHEN IT

COMES TO LONGEVITY,

EXERCISE MAKES A

DIFFERENCE, IDEALLY, ABOUT

AN HOUR A DAY.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS, LORI.

AND, PAT, AS YOU KNOW, IT

DOESN'T TAKE MUCH.

JUST WALKING CAN PROLONG

LIFE.

Pat: I'VE PR PROLONGED

MINE, I GUESS.

I DID CARDIO AND RUNNING

AND WEIGHTS AND HEAVY,

HEAVY WEIGHTS.

Wendy: AND YOUR

EXERCISE CHOICE THESE DAYS

IS HORSEBACK RIDING, WHICH

IS VERY GOOD.

Pat: YES.

MY HORSE HAS BEEN LAID UP

FOR A YEAR.

HE IS IN REHAB -- IT HAS

TAKEN FOREVER.

HE PULLED A DISPENSERY

THING.

Wendy: HOPEFULLY BY

SPRING --

Pat: THEY'LL LET ME

GO BACK ON HIM ON THE

29th.

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

Wendy: SPRING IS

COMING.

Pat: IT IS COME,

BABY.

Wendy: COMING UP, A

REVOLUTIONARY WAY TO TREAT

CANCER WITHOUT SURGERY OR

PAINFUL SIGHT EFFECTS.

SIDE EFFECTS.

IT IS PAINLESS, AND I

CAN GO RIGHT BACK TO WORK.

Wendy: WE'LL TELL YOU

MORE ABOUT PROTON THERAPY

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: IT IS A CURSE,

AND I PERSONALLY HATE IT.

NEARLY TWO MILLION PEOPLE

WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH

CANCER THIS YEAR.

BUT NOW THERE IS A

PROMISING NEW TREATMENT,

AND IT HAS A NAME THAT

SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING OUT

OF A SCIENCE FICTION

MOVIE.

IT IS CALLED PROTON

THERAPY.

LORI JOHNSON HAS THAT

STORY.

Lori: JEFF POWELL AND

HIS WIFE, VICKI, BELIEVE

THEY DODGED NOT ONE BUT

TWO BULLETS.

FIRST, JEFF BEAT PROSTATE

CANCER.

PLUS, BECAUSE HE CHOSE A

TREATMENT KNOWN AS PRO

TONPROTONTHERAPY, HE AVOIDED THE

MISERABLE SIDE EFFECTS

THAT OFTEN ACCOMPANY

TRADITIONAL METHODS.

I HAD LOOKED AT

SURGERY, AND I TALKED TO

SOME FRIENDS AT A LOCAL

PROSTATE MEETING WHO HAD

HAD IT, AND THEY HAD A LOT

OF TROUBLE WITH

INCONTINENCE AND SEXUAL

MALFUNCTION.

AT MY AGE, I JUST DIDN'T

WANT TO LIVE LIKE THAT.

Lori: PROTON THERAPY

PATIENTS HAVE FEWER SIDE

EFFECTS BECAUSE IT ONLY

KILLS THE CANCER.

TRADITIONAL RADIATION

THERAPY WORKS LIKE A

BULLET, DAMAGING HEALTHY

TISSUE AS IT ENTERS AND

EXITS THE BODY.

PROTON THERAPY, ON THE

OTHER HAND, IS LIKE A

FIRECRACKER PLACED INSIDE

THE TUMOR.

THE EXPLOSION OF RADIATION

DAMAGES JUST THE TUMOR,

NOTHING ELSE.

THERE IS NO NAUSEA, NO

BURNING, AND, BEST OF ALL,

NO ORGAN DAMAGE.

EVERYTHING THAT WORKED

WHEN I STARTED MY

TREATMENT WORKS FINE NOW.

Lori: THERE ARE ONLY

NINE PROTON THERAPY

CENTERS IN ALL OF THE

UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW.

BUT ANOTHER EIGHT ARE ON

THE WAY.

ONE OF THE NEWEST

TREATMENT FACILITIES IS

THIS ONE IN HAMPTON,

VIRGINIA.

THIS LOCATION WAS CHOSEN,

IN PART, BECAUSE THIS AREA

OF THE COUNTRY LEADS THE

NATION IN PROSTATE CANCER

DEATHS.

I'M HALF WAY THROUGH

THE THERAPY RIGHT NOW, THE

TREATMENT RIGHT NOW, AND

IT'S BEEN A PRETTY GOOD

EXPERIENCE.

Lori: 45-YEAR-OLD

CRAIG FIELDINGS CHOSE

PROTON THERAPY TO TREAT

HIS PROSTATE CANCER.

HE HAS COME HERE MONDAY

THROUGH FRIDAY FOR ONE

MONTH AND HAS ONE MORE TO

GO.

THE COST OF PROTON THERAPY

IS ABOUT THREE TIMES THE

COST OF TRADITIONAL

TREATMENT, BUT MOST

INSURERS, LIKE CRAIG'S

COVERS THE TREATMENT.

IT IS A PAINLESS

PROCESS.

I'M IN IN OU AND OUT IN 15

MINUTES AND I CAN GO BACK

TO WORK.

Lori: PROSTATE

PATIENTS LIKE CRAIG AREN'T

THE ONLY ONES WHO BENEFIT.

WE TREAT A LOT OF

PROSTATE CANCER, BUT WE

ALSO TREAT A LOT OF BRAIN,

HEAD, AND NECK, AND

BREAST, LUNG, ESOPHAGEAL,

AND WE'RE LOOKING AT

PANCREATIC.

AND IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT

FOR PEDIATRIC PATIENTS

BECAUSE KIDS HAVE A HIGHER

PROBABILITY OF GETTING A

TUMOR WITH TRA STRAY

RADIATION.

Lori: AND IT ALLOWS

THE PROTON BEAM TO FORM TO

THE EXACT SHAPE OF THE

CANCER.

SMSOME CANCERS HAVE A 40%

BETTER RATE THAN

TRADITIONAL TREATMENT.

YOU CAN RAISE UP THE

DOSE IN THE TUMOR IN SOME

CASES, AND SO WE'LL HAVE A

PROBABLE HIGHER SUCCESS

RATE.

SO SOME OF THE HEAD AND

NECK CANCERS ARE VERY MUCH

LIKE THAT.

AND FOR THE PROSTATE

CANCER PATIENTS, THE CURE

RATES OF COMPARABLE TO

OTHER TREATMENTS, BUT

WE'RE TRYING TO GIVE THEM

A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE

AFTER THE TREATMENT.

Lori: THE PATIENT

LIES ON A MACHINE CALLED A

GANTRY.

IN OTHER ROOM, THE

TECHNICIANS ACTIVATE THE

PROTON BEAM, NO NEEDLES,

NO KNIVES.

THE PATIENT IS ON THE

OTHER SIDE OF THAT WALL.

THIS MACHINE IS THREE

STORIES TALL, WEIGHS

90 TONS, AND COSTS

$8 MILLION.

SO THIS IS PHYSICS.

Lori: ONCOLOGIST ALAN

THORNTON HAS BEEN USING

PROTON THERAPY SINCE THE

EARLY '90s.

THIRD QUARTER SI THIS IS A RESOURCE TO

THE COMMUNITY AND THE

NATION.

IT BUILDS ON 50 YEARS OF

RESEARCH, FIRST CON

MEN'SING ICOMMENCINGIN SWEDEN.

THERE ARE MILLIONS OF

PHYSICIANS WORKING TO

BRING THIS TECHNOLOGY TO

ITS CURRENT FRUITION.

Lori: THAT WORK MEANS

AN ANSWER TO PRAYER FOR

CANCER PATIENTS WHO

QUALIFY FOR PROTON

THERAPY.

THEY CAN KEEP MORE HEALTHY

TISSUE, WHILE ESCAPING

CERTAIN SIDE EFFECTS FROM

CONVENTIONAL THERAPY.

IF I HAD TO DO IT OVER,

HANDS DOWN, THAT WOULD BE

THE WAY I WOULD GO.

Lori: LORI JOHNSON,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: I THINK THAT IS

TREMENDOUS.

LORI, THANK YOU FOR

BRINGING US THAT REPORT.

YOU KNOW, I HAD PROSTATE

CANCER, MORE

TRADITIONALLY, AND I HAD

WHAT THEY CALL A PROSTATE

PROSTATETECOMY.

Wendy: UP NEXT, A

FIREFIGHTER GETS SIDELINED

BY A SOLDIER INJURY.

MY DOCTOR SAID THE

SURGERY WAS THE ONLY WAY

TO REPAIR IT.

Wendy: BUT HER DOCTOR

WAS WRONG.

SEE HOW SHE WAS SUPER

NATURALLY HEALED WITH NO

SURGERY, AFTER THIS.

Wendy: AS A MOM,

SHELLEY HERMAN IS USED TO

PUTTING OUT FIRES AROUND

THE HOUSE.

AND AS A FIREFIGHTER, SHE

IS USED TO PUTTING THEM

OUT AROUND TOWN.

SO WHEN AN ACCIDENT LEFT

HER UNABLE TO USE HER ARM,

SHELLEY WAS OUT OF WORK

UNTIL ONE AMAZING SUNDAY

MORNING.

I WAS IN AN AUTO

ACCIDENT.

THE AIRBAG DEPLOYED AND

PINNED MY ARM AND

DISLOCATED MY SHOULDER AT

THAT TIME.

I THINK I WAS IN SHOCK,

FOR THE MOST PART.

I NOTICED TWO OR THREE

DAYS LATER IS WHEN I HAD A

LOT OF PAIN AND NOTICED I

HAD NO MOBILITY IN MY

SHOULDER.

I FIGURED I WAS JUST GOING

TO BE SORE.

AND I HOPED, I GUESS, IT

WOULD GET BETTER.

I DID PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR

A LITTLE WHILE, AND IT WAS

NOT GETTING ANY BETTER.

IT MADE A LOT OF THINGS

VERY, VERY DIFFICULT.

I WASN'T ABLE TO PICK MY

KIDS UP.

I COULDN'T MOVE MY ARM

OVER MY HEAD AT ALL.

I COULD BARELY GO THIS FAR

AND IT WAS EXCRUCIATING.

JUST PUTTING ON MY SHIRT

IN THE MORNING WAS A TASK.

AND I WASN'T EVEN ALLOWED

TO SHOW UP ON CALL,

BECAUSE I COULD CALL A

CLIPBOARD, BUT IF

SOMETHING HAPPENED AND A

PATIENT GOT SICKER OR WE

HAD TO DO SOME KIND OF

C.P.R., I WOULDN'T BE ABLE

TO HELP.

I WOULD BE STANDING IN THE

WAY MORE THAN I WAS

HELPING.

MY CHARACTE CHIROPRACTOR REFERRED

ME TO MY PRIMARY CARE FOR

AN M.R.I.

AND HE SAID MY ROTATOR

CUFF WAS TORN.

AND THEN HE REFERRED ME TO

AN ORTHOPEDIC DOCTOR FOR A

CONSULT.

HE SAID MY SHOULDER WAS

SLIPPING IN OUT OF THE

JOINT BECAUSE IT WAS TORN,

AND THAT'S WHAT HOLDS YOUR

SHOULDER SOCKET IN.

I WAS AT SUNDAY MORNING

SERVICE, AND OUR WORSHIP

LEADER STARTED SPEAKING TO

ME, TELLING ME THAT GOD

DOES NOT WANT ME TO BE IN

PAIN AND HE WANTED TO TAKE

THE PAIN AWAY FROM ME.

EVERYBODY GATHERED AROUND

ME AND EVERYBODY STARTED

PRAYING.

I STARTED FEELING THIS

SENSE OF PEACE AND THIS

WARM SENSATION THAT WAS

MOVING UP MY ARM.

THE LONGER WE PRAYED, THE

FARTHER UP IT WENT.

THERE IS NO MORE PAINMENT

I COULD MOVE.

IT WAS A WARM, TINGLING

FEELING THAT CREEPED ALL

THE WAY UP MY ARM.

FOR MONTHS I COULDN'T EVEN

RAISE IT UP OVER MY HEAD.

BEFORE I LEFT THERE, I WAS

COMPLETELY MOVING IT

AROUND.

I CAN MOVE IT.

I CAN RAISE IT UP.

IT IS WONDERFUL.

SEPTEMBER 15th WAS MY

SURGICAL CONSULT, AND THE

NEXT STEP WAS SURGERY.

THAT'S WHEN THEY REVEALED

THE RESULTS OF THE M.R.I.,

AND THEY FOUND ABSOLUTELY

NOTHING.

THAT WAS THE FINAL

CONFIRMATION THAT THERE

WAS HEALING.

AND I JUST KEPT SAYING,

PRAISE GOD.

THANK YOU.

THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH

THANK YOUS, I DON'T THINK,

FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

THEY PUT ME THROUGH SEVEN

WEEKS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY,

JUST TO STRENGTHEN IT.

AFTER THAT, I WAS BACK AT

IT.

I SHARED IT WITH MY FIRE

CHIEF.

I THINK EVERYBODY IS GLAD

THAT I'M BACK.

I'VE BEEN A CHRISTIAN, AND

I I BELIEVE IN GOD AND ALL

OF HIS MIRACLES.

THIS WAS MY PERSONAL

MIRACLE.

PUT YOUR FAITH IN GOD.

ALWAYS PUT YOUR FAITH IN

GOD.

THERE IS NOTHING HE CAN'T

DO.

HE CAN DO ANYTHING.

HE CAN HEAL ANYBODY.

I'M LIVING PROOF THAT HE

DOES.

Wendy: THAT WAS HER

PERSONAL MIRACLE.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PEOPLE.

MAYBE YOU NEED A PERSONAL

MIRACLE TODAY.

WE'VE GOT GOOD NEWS.

GOD IS IN THE HEALING

BUSINESS.

HE'S IN THE

MIRACLE-WORKING BUSINESS,

AND HE WANTS TO HEAL YOU

TODAY.

AND PAT AND I WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU.

FIRST WE HAVE SOME

PRAYERS.

DANIEL OF DOUGLAS,

ARIZONA, BEGAN HAVING

SHORTNESS OF BREATH AND

DIZZINESS ABOUT AN HOUR

AFTER A MEAL.

THE DOCTOR DIAGNOSED IT AS

DIGESTIVE SPASMS, AND

PRESCRIBED MEDICATION THAT

MADE HIM SLEEPY.

THEN ONE DAY DANIEL WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" ON

DEEMEDEMAND ON HIS CELL PHONE

WHEN TERRY HAD THIS WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE: "YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH DIGESTION,

AND YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW

IT IS YOU BECAUSE IT

AFFECTS YOUR BREATH.

IT IS VERY NOTICEABLE.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW."

AND PAT SAID, "LORD, FOR

EVERYBODY IN THIS AUDIENCE

SUFFERING ARTHRITIS,

SHORTNESS OF BREATH, MAY

THE PRESENCE OF GOD BE IN

YOUR BODY NOW."

DANIEL CLAIMED THE WORD

AND HAS HAD NO PROBLEMS OR

SHORTNESS OF BREATH SINCE.

Pat: HERE IS ONE IN

SAN DIEGO.

RAMONA HAD BACK PAIN FOR

15 YEARS.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING,

AND WENDY, YOU HAD THAT

WORD.

"SOMEBODY WITH NERVE

DAMAGE, PUT YOUR HAND ON

WHEREVER IT WORKS."

I GAVE A WORD THAT IT MAY

BE IN THE SMALL OF YOUR

BACK.

ARE AND RAMONA WAS

INSTANTLY HEALED.

Wendy: I LOVE IT.

PRAISE GOD.

Pat: FOLKS, I AM SO

IMPRESSED WITH GOD.

I'M SO IMPRESSED WITH HIS

POWER.

JESUS SAID, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT

BELIEVES.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

ALL THINGS.

LISTEN, IF WE BELIEVE THAT

SPUN THIS ENORMOUS

UNIVERSE OUT OF NOTHING,

PLANETS AND SOLAR SYSTEMS,

AND ALL KINDS OF PLANTS

AND ANIMALS AND CREATURES

AND SO FORTH -- IF WE

BELIEVE HE COULD DO THAT,

WHY ARE WE RELUCTANT TO

THINK THAT HE CAN HEAL A

CANCER?

THIS IS GOD.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JANJOIN HANDS RIGHT NOW AND

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST THAT

YOU'RE GOING TO DO A

MIRACLE.

GOD, A LITTLE BOY NAMED

MICHAEL HAS LEUKEMIA, AND

MICHAEL HAS JUST BEEN

HEALED.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS RIGHT

NOW.

WENDY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: THERE ARE MANY

PEOPLE CRYING OUT FOR

PEACE.

YOU WANT TO FEEL ANXIETY

LEAVE AND PEACE COME.

LIFT UP YOUR ARMS NOW, GOD

IS TOUCHING YOU AND

BRINGING PEACE INTO YOUR

LIFE NOW.

Pat: OH, MY, YOU HAVE

LIKE PROJECTILE VOMITING.

YOU'RE SICK AT YOUR

STOMACH.

I DON'T THINK IT IS

MORNING SICKNESS.

IT IS LIKE AN ULCER.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

AND YOU'LL FEEL INNER

BURNING IN YOUR STOMACH,

AND GOD HAS COMPLETELY

HEALED YOU.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH A BROKEN

LEG, AND YOU'RE IN A LOT

OF PAIN AND MORE FEAR.

GOD IS SAYING, DO NOT

FEAR.

I'VE GOT THIS.

I'M GOING TO PUT YOU BACK

TOGETHER.

I FORMED YOU IN YOUR

MOTHER'S WOMB, AND I'M

GOING TO FIX YOUR LEG.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THERE ARE MANY

PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE

WHO DON'T HAVE PEACE, AND

GOD IS GIVING YOU PEACE

RIGHT NOW.

LET THE PEACE OF GOD WASH

OVER YOU.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

JUST THANK HIM NOW FOR THE

MIRACLE THAT IS GOING TO

COME YOUR WAY.

THANK HIM FOR IT.

STOP THINKING NEGATIVELY,

AND START PRAISING GOD FOR

THE MIRACLE THAT IS YOURS

TODAY.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

Wendy: GOOD WORD.

Pat: GIVE US A CALL.

LET US KNOW WHAT GOD HAS

DONE IN YOUR LIFE.

WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

1-888-777-1999.

WENDY, YOU'VE GOT

INTERESTING GIFTS.

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THAT

TERMINALLY TODAY.

Wendy: I NEVER HEARD

OF THE TERM "NEO VIRGIN."

BUT WE'RE GOING TO HEAR

FROM ONE.

HEAR WHY SHE WENT FROM

BEING SEXUALLY ACTIVE TO

SEXUALLY ABSTINENT ON LATER

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

KANSAS REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR

SAM BROWNBACK TOLD

RELIGIOUS ACTIVISTS TO

KEEP FIGHTING FOR,

QUOTE,"RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

FOR ALL PEOPLE."

HE MADE THAT STATEMENT

ALTER THE END OF A

RELIGION FREEDOM RALLY ON

TUESDAY.

SEVERAL HUNDRED PEOPLE

GATHERED TO HEAR SPEECHES.

AND THEY HEARD FROM THE

WASHINGTON STATE FLORIST

WHO WAS SUED FOR REFUSING

TO PROVIDE FLOWERS FOR A

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BECAUSE

OF HER RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

THE F.B.I. IS

INVESTIGATING THE CASE AT

HOLLYWOOD PRESBYTERIAN

MEDICAL CENTRE, WHERE

HACKERS LOCKED

ADMINISTRATORS OUT OF

THEIR OWN RECORDS.

THEY DEMANDED RANSOM OF 40

BITCOINS, WHICH IS ABOUT

$17,000.

THEY PAID THE RANSOM

BECAUSE IT WAS IN THE BEST

INTEREST OF THE HOSPITAL.

I'M NOT SURPRISED

BECAUSE THE FACT IS THEY

HAVE A LOT OF SENSITIVE

IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION

OF THEIR PATIENTS AND OF

THEIR EMPLOYEES.

I'M SURE THE LAW

ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE

NOT HAPPY THAT THE

HOSPITAL PAID THE RANSOM.

Efrem: THERE ARE

QUESTIONS ABOUT WEATHER

THE HOSPITAL DID THE RIGHT

THING.

RANSOM ATTACKS CAN HAPPEN

TO EVERYONE, FROM

INDIVIDUALS TO LARGE

INSTITUTIONS.

> REMEMBER YOU CAN

ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBN NEWS.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: IN THE DATING

WORLD, SADLY PURITY HAS

GONE THE WAY OF PAY

PHONES.

BUT ONE NEO VIRGIN IS ON A

CAMPAIGN TO BRING IT BACK.

MEET CARRIE LLOYD.

SHE WAS 23 AND A VIRGIN.

AFTER HER FATHER DIED,

CARRIE LOST HER WAY.

HER FAITH, HER FAITH, AND

HER VIRGINITY.

YEARS LATER, CARRIE

LEARNED HOW TO LIVE OUT

HER FAITH.

I WAS IN THIS FIVE-YEAR

RELATIONSHIP, AND HALF WAY

THROUGH, I DECIDED I WAS

GOING TO STOP HAVING SEX.

Wendy: IN HER BOOK,

SHE SHARES WHY SHE DECIDED

TO LIVE A LIFE OF

ABSTINENCE AND THE FACTS

OF DATING THAT EVERY

SINGLE PERSON NEEDS TO

KNOW.

PLEASE WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB," AUTHOR AND PASTOR

CARRIE LLOYD.

LOVELY TO MEET YOU.

AND LOVELY TO MEET YOU.

Wendy: READING YOUR

BOOK, YOU'RE ANYTHING BUT

A PRUDE, BUT I'M VERY

CURIOUS ABOUT THE TITLE

AND THE MEANING OF "NEO

VIRGIN."

THAT IS SOMETHING I WAS

CALLED WHEN I WAS A KID,

MAINLY BECAUSE I WAS

HOLDING OUT UNTIL

MARRIAGE.

AND EVERYBODY ELSE IN MY

VICINITY WAS BASICALLY

TEASING ME FOR WANTING TO

HOLD OUT UNTIL MARRIAGE.

AND NONE OF MY OTHER

FRIENDS WERE CHRISTIANS.

I PRUDE SEEMED TO BE THE

PERFECT THING TO CALL IT.

Wendy: YOU REMAINED A

VIRGIN UNTIL YOU WERE 23.

SO YOU GOT THROUGH THE

COLLEGE YEARS.

FAIRLY WELL DONE.

Wendy: AND THEN WHAT

HAPPENED?

I LOST A LITTLE HOPE.

EVERYBODY AROUND ME DIDN'T

WAIT, AND I THOUGHT, I

DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE

IS UP FOR THIS AS I WAS.

AND MY PARENTS HAD A GREAT

MARRIAGE, AND THEY SAVED

THEMSELVES UNTIL MARRIAGE,

AND THEY SOLD THE IDEA TO

ME.

AND I DIDN'T HAVE A REALLY

STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD.

Wendy: AND THAT WAS

THE YEAR YOUR DAD DIED?

WHEN I WAS ABOUT 23, MY

DAD DIED SUDDENLY, AND

CONSECUTIVELY, FOUR OTHER

PEOPLE DIED AROUND ME.

AND I BECAME A VERY ANGRY

ATHEIST.

ON THAT JOURNEY, I

ACTUALLY MET SOMEONE WHO

WAS WILLING TO WAIT FOR

MARRIAGE, AND YET I

DECIDED I WAS GOING TO

GIVE UP THE GHOST, IF THAT

MAKES SENSE.

Wendy: SO DURING YOUR

20s, YOU WERE SEXUALLY

ACTIVE AND HAD MANY

RELATIONSHIPS IN YOUR

20s, AND WHAT DID YOU

DISCOVER AT THE END OF ALL

OF THIS?

I HAD THREE LONG-TERM

SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS.

AND WAS LIVING LIFE AS

MOST OF THE 20s WERE.

ANY ENJOYED IT ON SOME

PARTS, BUT I FELT PRETTY

EMPTY AT THE SAME TIME.

I KNEW THERE WAS MORE, BUT

I WASN'T SURROUNDED BY A

CULTURE THAT WAS KIND OF

LOOKING FOR MORE.

SO I THINK I WAS LIVING A

LIFE THAT I THOUGHT WAS

MEANINGFUL, AND YET

SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE,

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN MY

ATHEISM AND FINDING FAITH

AGAIN, I DECIDED TO START

LOOKING AGAIN AT WHAT

PURITY MEANT.

Wendy: WHAT WAS THE

TURNINGPOINT.

YOU WERE IN THIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS GUY

AND SEXUALLY ACTIVE, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU SAY,

HONEY, WE'RE NOT GOING TO

HAVE SEX ANYMORE.

POOR GUY.

IT TOOK HIM A FEW DAYS TO

GO OKAY.

I ACTUALLY DID GIVE HIM AN

EXIT.

HE STAYED AROUND AND WE

HAD ANOTHER TWO YEARS OF A

RELATIONSHIP.

BUT WHAT IT DID WAS

ACTUALLY STARTED TO SHOW

IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WHERE

THE CRACKS WERE, AND THAT

WE DIDN'T ACTUALLY HAVE

THE SAME CORE VALUES ABOUT

THINGS.

ONE OF THE THINGS ABOUT

PURITY THAT I ACTUALLY

LOVE, WHICH MADE ME FEEL

FAR MORE LIBERAL THAN EVER

BEFORE, WHICH PEOPLE ARE

QUITE SURPRISED BY BECAUSE

PEOPLE SEE SELF-DISCIPLINE

AS A BOUNDARY, BUT IT HAS

BEEN VERY LIBERATING FOR

ME TO KNOW I CAN MAKE

DECISIONS ABOUT EMOTIONAL

CONTACTS WITH PEOPLE AND

I'M NOT EXCEEDING THE

LEVEL OF INTIMACY, IF THAT

MAKES SENSE.

Wendy: YOU'RE IN YOUR

30s AND NOT DATING RIGHT

NOW?

NO.

Wendy: HOW DOES YOUR

STANCE AFFECT YOUR

RELATIONSHIPS TODAY?

FORTUNATELY, I'M IN A

CULTURE, A CHURCH, THAT A

LOT OF US BELIEVE IN THAT.

I DIDN'T HAVE TO HAVE THAT

CONVERSATION ON DATE

THREE.

SO THAT, IN ITSELF, IS

JUST A BREEZE NOW.

I WISH I HAD BEEN IN THIS

ENVIRONMENT WHEN I WAS 23.

I THINK THINGS WOULD HAVE

BEEN QUITE DIFFERENT.

HAVING SAID THAT, IT IS

STILL A JOURNEY OF

LEARNING HOW TO BE PURE.

AND I WORK IN A SECULAR

WORLD AS WELL.

IT IS DEFINITELY A TALKING

POINT AT DINNER, THAT'S

FOR SURE.

Wendy: AFTER YOU

DECIDED, NO MORE SEX, YOU

ACTUALLY GOT INTO

PORNOGRAPHY?

YES.

THAT'S HYPOCRITICAL ON

SOME ASPECTS.

Wendy: YOU THOUGHT

YOU WERE HELPING THE

SITUATION?

I THOUGHT IT WASN'T

GOING TO HARM ANYONE.

I THOUGHT IT WOULDN'T HARM

ME OR ANYONE ELSE.

I THOUGHT IF I LOOKED AT

PORNOGRAPHY, THAT WOULD

SAVE MY SEXUAL DESIRES.

THAT WAS THE LIGHT I WAS

TELLING ME.

Wendy: HOW DID YOU

FIND OUT THIS IS

POTENTIALLY HARMING ME AND

FUTURE RELATIONSHIPS.

I HAD A MOMENT AND I

THOUGHT IT DEVELOPS THIS

PAVLOVIAN AFFECT, AND THE

MORE WE WATCH IT, THE MORE

WE WANT TO WATCH IT.

AND I HAD AN ANIMALISTIC

VIEWPOINT, ALL OF A

SUDDEN, OF SEX, WHICH IS

NOT HOW THE LORD WANTS IT

TO BE.

AND I WAS STARTING TO DO

MORE MISSION WORK WITH SEX

TRAFFICKED VICTIMS, AND

WATCHING THE PAIN AND

EFFECTS OF PORNOGRAPHY AND

WHAT IT IS DOING TO THE

WORLD.

AND IT WAS DISCONNECTING

ME AND MY BOYFRIEND AT THE

TIME.

Wendy: WHAT DO YOU

SAY -- YOU'RE A PASTOR AND

A SPEAKER.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO SINGLES

WHO WANT PURITY IN THEIR

LIFE, BUT THEY'VE ALREADY

MESSED UP AND THEY DON'T

THINK THEY CAN TURN BACK

OR THEY DON'T THINK IT IS

POSSIBLE?

I THINK WE'VE GOT TO

GET RID OF THIS LINE OF

THINKING, WELL, I'VE GIVEN

THIS AWAY, SO THERE IS NO

POINT IN HOLDING BACK

ANYMORE.

I BELIEVE IF WE FEEL WE

WANT TO LIVE A PURE LIFE

AND HOLISTIC LIFE FOR THE

LORD, IT IS NEVER T TOO LATE

TO START AGAIN.

IT IS THE POSTURE WE HAVE

IN OUR HEARTS TOWARDS

SOMEONE ELSE, AND THE

GIVING RATHER THAN THE

TAKING.

IF PEOPLE HAVE A PAST

HISTORY JUST LIKE ME,

GETTING RID OF THE SHAME

AND FORGIVING OURSELVES,

AS MUCH AS THE OTHER

PEOPLE WE MIGHT HAVE TAKEN

ADVANTAGE OF, OR THEY'VE

TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF US, AND

INVITE HONOR BACK INTO OUR

RELATIONSHIPS.

Wendy: OUR SOCIETY

AND EVERYTHING ON TV IS SO

OVERLY SEXUALIZED.

WOULDN'T IT BE NICE TO GO

BACK TO A TIME WHEN PURITY

IS NICE.

AND PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE

HELPING THAT COME BACK

INTO FASHION.

THANK YOU, CARRIE.

YOU ARE A VERY CLEVER AND

ENTERTAINING WRITER --

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Wendy: AND YOU ARE

ANYTHING BUT A PRUDE.

"PRUDE, THE CONFESSIONS OF

A NEO VIRGIN," AND IT'S

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

AND, PAT, I THINK YOU

WOULD LIKE IT?

Pat: WELL, I DON'T

KNOW.

STILL AHEAD, FOLKS, WE'VE

GOT YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

MARCY SAYS, "I HAVE

REPENTED FROM ADULTERY A

LONG TIME AGO.

MY HUSBAND HAS FORGIVEN

ME, BUT WHAT CAN I DO TO

RESTORE MY RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD?"

WELL, WE'VE GOT THAT

QUESTION AND MORE ON THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, HAPPY TO

HAVE YOU WITH US.

PAT GARDENER SPENT TWO

YEARS WITHOUT WORKING,

AFTER BEING LAID OFF.

NOW THIS ELECTRICIAN HAS

STEADY WORK, WITH

OVERTIME.

HERE IS HOW A DESPERATE

PRAYER BY HIS WIFE,

BONNIE, MADE ALL OF THE

DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: PAT AND

BONNIE ARTHUR LOVE

SPENDING TIME TOGETHER.

THEY ALSO LOVE PARTNERING

WITH CBN TO HELP THOSE IN

NEED ALL OVER THE WORLD.

THE THING ABOUT CBN IS

THEY ALREADY HAVE ALL

THOSE CONNECTIONS, AND

THEY CAN GET THERE AND BE

FIRST ON THE GROUND AND

THEY CAN GET THE HELP

THERE IMMEDIATELY.

Reporter: WHEN THE

GARDENERS CAME ACROSS "THE

700 CLUB" IN 2012, THEY

WERE BARELY GETTING BY.

PAT, AN ELECTRICIAN,

HADN'T WORKED A DAY AFTER

GETTING LAID OFF TWO YEARS

EARLIER.

WHILE WATCHING THE SHOW,

THEY WATCHED THE BIBLICAL

PRINCIPLE, TO GIVE.

WE THOUGHT, LORD, HOW

CAN WE GROW CLOSER TO OUR

FAITH AND CLOSER TO YOU.

BEAT US OVER THE HEAD.

SHOW US A WAY SO THAT WE

UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE

TELLING US.

Reporter: ABOUT THAT

TIME, THEY LEARNED ABOUT A

SINGLE MOTHER OF FOUR WHO

WAS RECOVERING FROM BACK

SURGERY AND NEEDED SOME

HELP.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE MONEY TO

GIVE, SO THEY TOOK SOME

HOUSEHOLD SUPPLIES AND

WENT OVER TO HELP HER.

I WASN'T BUSY, SO I

COULD GO OVER TO HELP HER,

AND I DID.

NO MATTER HOW BAD YOUR

LIFE IS, THERE IS ALWAYS

SOMEONE ELSE WHO NEEDS

MORE HELP THAN YOU DO.

Reporter: A FO FEW DAYS

LATER, PAT RECEIVED A

PHONE CALL AND WENT BACK

TO WORK.

BOTH NEW RIGHT AWAY THAT

GOD HAD PROVIDED.

WE GOT DOWN ON OUR

HANDS AND KNEES AND WE

PRAISED HIM AND THANKED

HIM.

Reporter: THEY ALSO

REALIZED IT WAS THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY THAT WORKED.

AND CALLED CBN.

WE STARTED OUT AS A

MEMBER BECAUSE WE KNOW THE

LORD CALLED US TO DO THAT.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ALWAYS THERE, AND THEY ARE

THERE EVERYWHERE IN THE

WORLD.

THE LORD SAYS TEST ME,

AND I WILL BE FAITHFUL.

WE'VE SEEN IT AND WE KNOW

IT.

Pat: YOU KNOW, GOD

PUT SOME PRINCIPLES IN THE

WORLD, AND THEY'RE SO

SIMPLE, BUT THEY BRING

REMARKABLE RESULTS.

REMARKABLE.

ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES THAT

THE LORD GAVE US IS, GIVE

AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

GIVING.

WHEN YOU GIVE TO OTHERS

AND YOU HELP OTHERS, IT

DOES SOMETHING WONDERFUL

FOR YOU.

WE'RE INVITING PEOPLE TO

HAVE A WONDERFUL

EXPERIENCE.

BE A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

IT'S $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS

A DAY.

AND WE'RE GOING TO GIVE

YOU THIS D.V.D.

AND IT'S CALLED "HEAVEN."

WE HAD A LOT OF FUN DOING

A PROGRAM -- I LOVE TO

TALK ABOUT HEAVEN.

I HAD. CHAUNCEY CRANDELL

ON, AND HE HAD SEEN SOME

OF HIS PATIENTS DIE, WHO

HAD SEEN THE GLORY OF

HEAVEN, AND WHO HAVE COME

BACK TO TELL ABOUT IT.

THIS IS CALLED "HEAVEN,"

AND YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

ANY OF THIS.

WE'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE

IF YOU CALL AND JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?

Wendy: I WATCHED IT

MORE THAN ONCE, AND I

LOVED IT.

AND I WAS ABLE TO TALK

ABOUT IT FOR TWO WHOLE

WEEKS ON TELETHON, AND I

LOVED IT.

Pat: PAUL SAID, I'LL

FORGET EVERYTHING THAT IS

BEHIND, ALL OF THIS STUFF

I'VE DONE, BUT I'M

REACHING FOR WHAT IS

AHEAD, THAT I MIGHT AGAIN

THE HIGH CALL OF CHRIST

JESUS.

AND HE SAID, I'D DO

ANYTHING IF I COULD GAIN

THE RESURRECTION OF THE

DEAD.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

WHAT IS COMING THAT IS

GOING TO BE SO WONDERFUL.

Wendy: THAT'S THE

HOPE OF CHRISTIANS.

Pat: THE HOPE WE'VE

GOT.

OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO

ANSWER SOME MORE

QUESTIONS.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

ANOTHER ROUND OF "BRING IT

ON."

DIANE ASKS, "IS IT ALL

RIGHT FOR A CHRISTIAN TO

TAKE A LITTLE WINE FOR THE

STOMACH AND THE HEART?"

STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S

ANSWER, AND MUCH MORE,

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

MARCY WRITES, "I HAVE

REPENTED FROM ADULTERY A

LONG TIME AGO.

MY HUSBAND HAS FORGIVEN

ME, BUT I STILL FEEL

DISTANT FROM THE LORD

BECAUSE OF THIS SIN.

WHAT CAN I DO TO REVIVE MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

AFTER THIS SEEMINGLY

UNFORGIVE BELIEVE SIN?"

Pat: YOU KNOW WHAT

THE BIBLE SAYS?

GOD SAYS, I WANT YOU TO BE

CLEANSED FROM DEAD WORKS,

A CONSCIENCE, THAT YOU

MIGHT SERVE THE LIVING

GOD.

GOD WANTS YOU IN HIS

SERVICE.

HE DOESN'T WANT YOU

BEATING YOURSELF UP.

HE REALLY DOESN'T.

SO, YOU COMMITTED

ADULTERY.

SO HAVE MILLIONS OF

OTHERS.

SO BIG DEAL.

YOU'RE A SEXUAL BEING, AND

YOU WERE WEAK ONE TIME, OR

MAYBE FOR A FEW DAYS OR

WHATEVER, WITH SOME GUY,

AND YOU BEAT YOURSELF UP

EVER SINCE.

GOD FORGIVES YOU.

AND IF YOU DON'T ACCEPT

HIS FORGIVENESS, YOU'RE

SAYING GOD IS A LIAR.

IT SAYS, "IF WE CONFESS

OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL

AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR

SINS AND CLEANSE US FROM

ALL OUR UNRIGHTEOUSNESS,

IF WE ARE FAITHFUL."

BELIEVE WHAT HE SAYS, AND

REST ON HIS WORD, AND

START PRAISING HIM AND

LIVING FOR HIM.

FORGET THIS.

YOU HAVE DONE IT, IT IS IN

THE PAST, UNDER THE BLOOD,

AND GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

JOHN SAYS, "I HAVE A

FRIEND WHO ATTENDS A

CHURCH, AND THE PASTOR

NEVER PRAYS IN JESUS'

NAME.

THE PASTOR'S EXPLANATION

HAS TO DO WITH NOT WANTING

TO GET INTO A RITUAL.

MY FRIEND SAYI'M CONCERNED BECAUSE THE

BIBLE SAYS EVERYTHING MUST

GO THROUGH JESUS,

INCLUDING PRAYER."

Pat: IT DOESN'T QUITE

TEACH THAT EVERYTHING MUST

GO THROUGH JESUS,

INCLUDING PRAYER.

BUT HERE IS THE DEAL: WITH

HAVE A POWER OF ATTORNEY,

AND IT IS IN THE NAME OF

THE SON OF GOD.

HE SAID ALL AUTHORITY IN

HEAVEN IS GIVEN UNTO ME,

AND GO YEE THEREFORE.

AND SO WHEN WE GO OUT, WE

DO IT IN HIS NAME.

SO THE AUTHORITY WE HAVE

IN THE CHURCH COMES

THROUGH THE POWER OF

ATTORNEY WE HAVE IN THE

NAME OF THE SON OF GOD.

I GET THESE QUESTIONS

ABOUT THESE NUTTY THINGS

THAT PASTORS DO.

AND THIS IS JUST A NUTTY

THING.

I DON'T KNOW WHY THE GUY

WON'T PRAY IN JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: I WOULD MISS

THAT IF MY PASTOR DIDN'T

DO THAT.

Pat: YEAH.

IF YOU'RE UNHAPPY, GO TO

OTHER CHURCH.

Wendy: DIANE WRITES

IN, "IS IT ALL RIGHT FOR A

CHRISTIAN TO TAKE A LITTLE

WINE FOR THE STOMACH AND

THE HEART?"

Pat: LOOK, WINE WITH

MEALS IS PART OF THE

CULTURE OF THE EUROPEANS,

OF THE GREEKS, OF THE

ROMANS AND THE ISRAELIS

AND A WHOLE LOT OF OTHERS.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD

BEGIVES US OIL TO MAKE OUR

FACES SHINE AND WINE TO

GLAD DEDEN OUR HEARTS.

JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF

TURNED WATER INTO WINE.

SO A LITTLE WINE.

BUT THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS

THE WINE IS A MOCKER AND

STRONG DRINK IS RAGING.

YOU CAN GET WINE AND

BECOME AN ALCOHOLIC.

BUT A LITTLE WINE FOR

DINNER, A LITTLE GLASS OF

WINE TO HELP YOUR

DIGESTION, THERE IS

NOTHING SINFUL ABOUT IT.

BUT THE QUESTION IS THIS:

IF YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND

THAT IS AN ALCOHOLIC, ONE

GLASS OF WINE COULD SET

HIM OFF AND RUIN HIM.

I KNEW ONE MAN WHO

COULDN'T EAT JELLY, YOU

KNOW, THAT HAD A LITTLE

BIT OF WINE IN IT BECAUSE

IT WOULD SET OFF HIS

ALCOHOLISM.

SO IF YOU THINK THAT WOULD

BE THE CASE, THEN, OF

COURSE, YOU DON'T DRINK

WINE.

BUT TO SIT AROUND AND HAVE

A GLASS OF WINE AT DINNER

OR SOMETHING -- JESUS

CHRIST TURNED WATER INTO

WINE, AND HE WASN'T

SINNING.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

WRITES, "DEAR PAT, YOU

HAVE THE ONLY NEWS THAT I

REALLY TRUST.

IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET

THE HONEST INFORMATION ON

EACH CANDIDATE RUNNING IN

SOUTH CAROLINA.

WE HAVE TO VOTE IN A FEW

DAYS, AND I'VE WATCHED

DEBATES AND NEWS, AND I

CANNOT DECIDE WHO IS BEING

TRUTHFUL.

WHAT GUIDELINES WOULD YOU

SUGGEST?"

Pat: YOU CAN GO

ONLINE AND SEE THEIR

RECORDS.

WHAT HAVE THE PEOPLE DONE?

WHAT IS THEIR RECORD?

WHAT EXPERIENCES DO THEY

HAVE?

WHAT IS THE OVERALL

BACKGROUND?

WHAT WE'RE DOING IS

GETTING A SNAP SHOT, AND

SO OFTEN THE SNAPSHOT IS

BLURRED WAS OF ALL OF THE

EXTRANEOUS NOISE.

YOU CAN DIAL UP THE

INTERNET AND LOOK AT ALL

KINDS OF STUFF.

Wendy: JOANNA SAYS,

"RECENTLY I WAS TOLD THAT

COMPLETE SALVATION IS

ACCEPTING CHRIST AS LORD

AND SAVIOR, AND YOU MUST

ALSO BE BAPTIZED TO

COMPLETE YOUR SALVATION

OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE

JUDGED.

IS NOT SALVATION COMPLETE

WHEN YOU ACCEPT JESUS AND

CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH?"

Pat: THAT'S WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS, IF YOU CONFESS

WITH YOUR MOUTH AND

CONFESS WITH YOUR HEART,

YOU WILL BE SAVED.

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS.

BUT BAPTISM IS A SIGN THAT

WE ARE DEAD WITH CHRIST

AND WE WERE RAISED IN THE

NEWNESS OF LIFE.

Wendy: SO IT'S A

PUBLIC EXPRESSION OF

FAITH?

Pat: IT IS A PUBLIC

EXPRESSION.

BUT IT IS A SYMBOL.

BUT THE BIG THING IS YOU

HAVE GIVEN YOUR HEART TO

THE LORD.

THAT'S WHAT SAVES YOU.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM JEREMIAH

17: "BLESSED IS THE MAN

WHO TRUSTS IN THE LORD AND

WHO'S HOPE IS IN THE

LORD."

WELL, TOMORROW JOSEPH

FIENNES TALKS ABOUT HIS

ROLE IN THE NEW FILM

"RISEN."

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON AND

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

GOOD-BYE.
