Wendy: INSIDE

CHURCHES ACROSS ENGLAND, A

RESURRECTION OF SORTS.

PLUS...

EVERYTHING IS GOING

WRONG.

Wendy: ...DESPERATE

TIMES.

I NEED THIS.

Wendy: ...CALL FOR

DISSIPATE MEASURES.

ONE CON'S LAST HEIST.

I'M GOING TO MAKE IT

OUT OF THIS.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

CAN YOU IMAGINE LIVING IN

EUROPE, UNDER FEAR THAT

WHEREVER YOU WALK THERE

MIGHT BE SOME TERRORIST?

AND THE SO-CALLED

ADHERENCE TO THE RELIGION

OF PEACE HAVE STRUCK

AGAIN.

THIS TIME KILLING ALMOST

30 PEOPLE IN THE HEART OF

EUROPE.

COORDINATED BOMBINGS IN

BRUSSELS.

A SUICIDE BOMBER STRUCK AT

THE AIRPORT.

Terry: AND TERRORISTS

STRUCK A SUBWAY

HEADQUARTERS AT THE

EUROPEAN UNION

HEADQUARTERS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: TWO

EXPLOSIONS ROCKED THE

BRUSSELS AIRPORT AS

HUNDREDS OF PASSENGERS

WERE TRYING TO CHECK IN

DURING THE EARLY MORNING

RUSH-HOUR.

PASSENGERS WERE EVACUATED

FROM THE TERMINAL WHERE

THE BLASTS OCCURRED.

YOU FELT THE EXPLOSION.

HOW COULD YOU NOT?

WE ONLY SAW SOME

SMASHED WINDOWS.

WE DIDN'T GET ANY

INFORMATION.

I WALKED THROUGH A

MESS, A LOAD OF STUFF,

SMOKE, WATER DRIPPING FROM

THE CEILING.

WE HAD TO WALK THROUGH

PUDDLES.

AND WE WERE EVACUATED.

Charlene: AND

SEPARATE STRIKES WERE

REPORTED IN VARIOUS

LOCATIONS ACROSS THE CITY.

ANOTHER BLAST AT THE

SUBWAY STATION WAS RIGHT

NEXT TO THE EUROPEAN UNION

HEADQUARTERS.

THE AIRPORTS AND SUBWAY

SYSTEMS ARE SHUT DOWN.

BRITISH AIRPORTS ARE

INCREASING SECURITY AND

PRIME MINISTER CAMERON IS

CONVENING THE GOVERNMENT'S

EMERGENCY COMMITTEE AFTER

THE EXPLOSIONS IN

BRUSSELS.

OFFICIALS CALLED THE

BLASTS TERRORISM, SIMILAR

TO THE ATTACKS THAT TOOK

PLACE IN PARIS IN

NOVEMBER, THAT KILLED 130

PEOPLE.

THE BOMBINGS HAPPENED ONLY

DAYS AFTER THE PRIME

SUSPECT IN THE PARIS

ATTACKS, SALAH ABDESLAM,

WAS ARRESTED IN BRUSSELS.

TERRORISM ANALYST E ERICK

STAKELBECK EARLIER TOLD

CBN NEWS ABOUT THE GROWING

THREAT IN BRUSSELS AND

OTHER PARTS OF EUROPE.

THIS TINY NEIGHBORHOOD,

CALLED MOLENBEEK, ON THE

FRINGES OF BRUSSELS HAS

BECOME A PROBLEM SPOT.

IT HAS BECOME AN INCUBATOR

FOR RADICAL JIHAD.

WE HAVE SEEN SEVERAL

RESIDENTS FROM THAT

NEIGHBORHOOD.

IT HAS BECOME A REAL

HOTBED FOR RADICAL IMAMS

AND ISIS SYMPATHIZERS.

WE'VE SEEN SEVERAL

RESIDENTS OF THAT

NEIGHBORHOOD LEAVE

MOLENBEEK AND COMING TO

JOIN ISIS.

Charlene: THE TERROR

THREAT IN BELGIUM HAS BEEN

RAISED TO ITS HIGHEST

LEVEL AT ALL

TRANSPORTATION HUBS.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT DOES A FREE

SOCIETY DO?

IT CANNOT ALLOW ITSELF TO

BE VICTIMIZED, AS IS

HAPPENING IN BELGIUM.

THEY'VE GOT TO TAKE

ACTION, AND THEY'VE GOT TO

TAKE SWIFT ACTION.

DALE HURD IS WITH US.

DALE, YOU'VE REPORTED FROM

BRUSSELS.

IT HAS BECOME A HOTBED OF

JIHADISTS.

TELL US ABOUT IT?

Reporter: I CALL IT

THE JIHADI BARRACKS OF

ISIS.

FOUR YEARS AGO WHEN I

NEEDED TO TALK TO A

TERRORIST IN BELGIUM, I

CALLED HIM ON HIS CELL

PHONE, AND I MET HIM OUT

IN THE OPEN AT A CAFE, AND

HE IS NOW IN PRISON.

I HAVE WONDERED WHY THIS

HASN'T HAPPENED SOONER.

THAT'S THE KIND OF

ENVIRONMENT THEY HAVE

THERE.

Pat: DALE, WHY DO

THEY PICK BRUSSELS?

BECAUSE OF THE E.U.?

BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT

OF TERRORISTS IN BRUSSELS.

SECURITY HAS BEEN SO LAX

THERE.

IT IS A VERY EASY TARGET.

I WAS WITH E.U. LEADERS A

FEW WEEKS AGO, AND EVERY

TIME I'M AT THE EUROPEAN

UNION, I'M STRUCK BY THE

LACK OF SECURITY, RELATIVE

TO WHAT YOU WOULD SEE IN

THE U.S. CAPITAL.

AND I ALWAYS WONDERED, DO

THEY REALLY THINK THAT

THEY'RE NEVER GOING TO BE

HIT.

AND MAYBE THEY AREN'T, BUT

THEY WERE.

Pat: AS YOU SAY, THIS

AIRPORT, SUBWAY, EASY

TARGETS.

DO THEY COME INTO BRUSSELS

FROM OTHER COUNTRIES,

LOOKING FOR OPPORTUNITIES

TO STRIKE?

NO.

AND THIS IS AN IMPORTANT

POINT: AFTER THE PARIS

ATTACKS, THE GOVERNMENTS

IN EUROPE TALKED ABOUT THE

THREAT FROM THE MIDDLE

EAST, FROM ISIS.

THE THREAT WAS ALREADY IN

EUROPE.

THE TERRORISTS WERE

ALREADY THERE LIVING IN

MOLENBEEK.

BUT BELGIUM IS GOING TO

NEED HELP TO DEAL WITH

THIS.

WE USED TO JOKE THAT IF

YOU WALKED THROUGH

BRUSSELS AIRPORT WITH A

HAND GRENADE AND YOU

DROPPED IT, A SOLDIER

WOULD STOP YOU AND HAND IT

BACK TO YOU.

EVEN AFTER 9/11, I THOUGHT

SECURITY WAS, FRANKLY, A

JOKE.

I'M NOT SURE BELGIUM IS UP

TO THE JOB TO HANDLE THIS.

Pat: WELL, IS IT THE

POLITICALLY CORRECT

PHILOSOPHY THAT IS CAUSING

THIS, OR THEY JUST DON'T

CARE?

YEAH, I THINK THAT

BRAINWASHING HAS OCCURRED.

I THINK THAT TOMORROW

PEOPLE WILL REALLY APPEAR

ON THE STREETS WITH REAL

POSTERS AND APOLOGIZE FOR

MUSLIMS FOR PROVOKING THIS

ATTACK.

AND IN THE MEDIA, YOU HAVE

ALL OF THIS

POLITICALLY-CORRECT

PRESSURE ON POLITICIANS TO

NOT BE RACIST, OKAY, AND

TO NOT SINGLE OUT A GROUP

BECAUSE ANYONE COULD

COMMIT THESE ATTACKS,

EXCEPT ONLY ONE GROUP

COMMITS THESE ATTACKS.

Pat: YOU ARE BEING

FACTITIOUS, OF COURSE, BUT

IS THERE TRUTH IN THAT,

THAT THEY WOULD LITERALLY

APOLOGIZE TO THE MUSLIMS

FOR INCITING THEM TO THIS

ATTACK?

THEY DID THAT IN SWEDEN

AFTER THE SEX ATTACKS.

PEOPLE CAME OUT ON TWITTER

AND Facebook, I'M SORRY

YOU HAVE BEEN SINGLED OUT

FOR THIS BECAUSE YOU HAVE

SUCH A HARD TIME HERE IN

SWEDEN, AND WE TREAT YOU

SO BADLY.

Pat: DALE, WHAT'S THE

SOLUTION?

OR IS THERE ONE?

DO YOU THINK THEY'LL EVER

FIND A SOLUTION TO THIS?

I'LL TELL YOU, THIS IS

A STUPID STRATEGY BY

MUSLIMS.

BUT IT ISN'T A STRATEGY.

THE RIGHT STRATEGY WOULD

BE WHAT A TERRORIST IN

BELGIUM TOLD ME FOUR YEARS

AGO, WHICH IS: WE'RE GOING

TO HAVE A LOT OF CHILDREN

AND SIMPLY TAKE OVER THE

COUNTRY THAT WAY.

BLOWING UP PEOPLE IS NOT A

STRATEGY.

WE, AS CHRISTIANS, KNOW IT

IS A BLOOD SACRIFICE TO

ALLAH.

THIS IS A SPIRITUAL

SERVICE THAT THEY'RE DOING

WHEN THEY BLOW THEMSELVES

UP, AND THEY BLOW UP

INFIDELS.

IT IS NOT A GOOD STRATEGY.

IT IS RELIGION.

Pat: DALE HURD, THANK

YOU FOR THE TREMENDOUS

INSIGHT, BRINGING THIS.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

ISN'T IT AMAZING WE WON'T

OPEN OUR EYES.

IT IS CLEAR IN THE QURAN

WHAT MUHAMMAD SAID.

IT IS CLEAR, THE TEACHINGS

IN THESE JIHADI ENCLAVES

AND WHEREVER THIS TEACHING

GOES FORTH, AND YET NOBODY

WILL ACT.

> IN OTHER NEWS, VOTERS

ARE GOING TO THE POLLS

AGAIN TODAY IN THE

PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES, A

DAY AFTER THE LEADING

CANDIDATES MADE THEIR CASE

FOR SUPPORT ISRAEL.

SUPPORTING ISRAEL.

SOME WERE VERY ARTICULATE.

I HEARD JOHN KASICH,

INCREDIBLE WHAT HE HAD TO

SAY ABOUT ISRAEL.

BUT THE ISRAEL PUBLIC

AFFAIRS COMMITTEE HAD A

HUGE CONFERENCE IN

WASHINGTON.

DAVID BRODY BRINGS US THAT

STORY.

David: THE BIG

PRO-ISRAEL CONFERENCE CONFERENCE

ATTRACTS THE POLITICAL BIG

WIGS.

HILLARY CLINTON IS ONE OF

THEM.

PALESTINIAN LEADERS

NEED TO STOP INCITING

VIOLENCE, STOP CELEBRATING

TERRORISTS AT MARTYRS, AND

STOP PAYING REWARDS TO

THEIR FAMILIES.

David: WHILE HILLARY

CLINTON SHOWED UP AT APEC

HERE IN WASHINGTON, BERNIE

SANDERS DID NOT.

BUT THE REAL BIG EVENT WAS

THE THREE REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATES ON STAGE.

SPECIFICALLY DONALD TRUMP,

WHO HAS SOME WORK TO DO IN

FRONT OF A PRO-ISRAELI

AUDIENCE.

HE HAS BEEN UNDER

CRITICISM FOR SAYING AS

PRESIDENT HE WANTS TO BE

SEEN AS NEUTRAL, WHEN

TRYING TO NEGOTIATE A

PEACE DEAL BETWEEN ISRAEL

AND THE PALESTINIAN.

TED CRUZ TRIED TO HIT HIM

ON THAT.

LET ME BE VERY, VERY

CLEAR: AS PRESIDENT, I

WILL NOT BE NEUTRAL.

AMERICA WILL STAND

UNAPOLOGETICALLY WITH THE

NATION OF ISRAEL.

David: BUT TRUMP'S

REMARKS WERE ANYTHING BUT

NEUTRAL.

IN A CRUCIAL SPEECH, WHERE

HE READ OFF A TELEPROMPTER

FOR THE FIRST TIME, HE

DELIVERED AN OVER THE TOP

ISRAEL ADDRESS.

I SPEAK TO YOU TODAY AS

A LIFE-LONG SUPPORTER AND

TRUE FRIEND OF ISRAEL.

THE PALESTINIAN MUST COME

TO THE TABLE KNOWING THAT

THE BOND BETWEEN THE

UNITED STATES AND ISRAEL

IS ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY

UNBREAKABLE.

AND THEY MUST COME TO THE

TABLE WILLING TO ACCEPT

THAT ISRAEL IS A JEWISH

STATE, AND IT WILL FOREVER

EXIST AS A JEWISH STATE.

[APPLAUSE]

David: JOHN KASICH,

WHO IS A DISTANT THIRD IN

THIS PRESIDENTIAL RACE,

DIDN'T GO AFTER TRUMP.

INSTEAD, HE PLAYED THE

LEADERSHIP CARD.

AS THE CANDIDATE IN

THIS RACE WITH THE DEEPEST

AND MOST FAR-REACHING

FOREIGN POLICY AND

NATIONAL EXPERIENCE,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

DON'T NEED ON-THE-JOB

TRAINING.

David: THE

CONFERENCE'S MAIN GOAL IS

TO GET PARTICIPANT ACTIVE

ON ISSUES THAT MATTER TO

ISRAEL.

THERE IS THE B.D.S.

MOVEMENT, THAT STANDS FOR

BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT AND

SANCTIONS.

THE MOVE WANTS TO ISOLATE

ISRAEL BECAUSE OF THEIR

SO-CALLED "OCCUPATION OF

PALESTINIAN LAND."

C.E.O. GORDON ROBERTSON

PRESENTED CBN'S NEW

DOCUMENTARY CALL "THE

HOPE, THE REBIRTH OF

ISRAEL."

IT EXPLAINS WHAT HAPPENED

IN THE 50 YEARS LEADING UP

TO THE FOUNDING OF THE

MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL.

AND THE PURPOSE OF THE

DOCUMENTARY IS

SIGNIFICANT.

Gordon: THE MORE I

GOT INTO IT, THE MORE I

DECIDED THAT THE WORLD

NEEDED TO SEE THIS, AND

NEEDED TO BE EDUCATED,

PARTICULAR IN LIGHT OF

WHAT IS CURRENTLY GOING ON

WITH THE B.D.S. MOVEMENT,

TO TRY TO BOYCOTT ISRAEL.

THE MORE PEOPLE ARE

EDUCATED ON HOW ISRAEL

ACTUALLY CAME TO BE, WHAT

ARE THE HISTORICAL FACTS,

THE BETTER ABLE THEY ARE

TO ARGUE AGAINST B.D.S.

David: THERE IS NO

DOUBT ISRAEL NEEDS

AMERICA'S SUPPORT,

ESPECIALLY AFTER A TENSE

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

SO NOW THESE TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PRO-ISRAEL

SUPPORTERS HERE IN

WASHINGTON ARE LOOKING FOR

A NEW PRESIDENT WILL STAND

STRONGER WITH ISRAEL THAN

EVER BEFORE.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: THANKS, DAVID.

I WATCHED JOHN KASICH --

INCREDIBLE.

HE HIT EVERY HOT BUTTON

YOU COULD HIT AND HE DID

IT VERY ELOQUENTLY.

I DIDN'T SEE TRUMP'S

SPEECH, BUT I THINK HE DID

WELL.

IT WAS AN ENORMOUS GROUP

OF PEOPLE.

Terry: WONDERFUL.

I WANT TO SAY, GORDON

MENTIONED THE D.V.D. THAT

WE'VE DONE CALLED "THE

HOPE," WHICH DOES DOCUMENT

THE 50 YEARS BEFORE ISRAEL

BECAME A STATE.

AND WE WANT YOU TO KNOW IT

IS AVAILABLE TO YOU AS

WELL FOR A GIFT OF $10.

YOU CAN GET IT IN D.V.D.

OR BLU-RAY.

YOU CAN DO THAT BY CALL

1-800-759-0700, OR LOG ON

TO cbn.com/ISRAEL THE

HOPE.

IT IS FILLED WITH

INFORMATION THAT

REINFORCES WHY WE STAND

WITH ISRAEL AND THE

HISTORY OF THAT GREAT

NATION.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE YOUR

COPY.

SO CALL NOW OR LOG ON NOW.

AND FOR $10, "THE HOPE" IS

YOURS.

I THINK YOU'LL REALLY

ENJOY IT.

> UP NEXT, FOR YEARS

CHURCHES ACROSS GREAT

BRITAIN HAVE SAT EMPTY,

BUT NOT ANYMORE.

WHEN WE REOPENED ONE OF

THE CHURCHES, THE KIDS

SAID, COME INTO OUR

CHURCH.

IT'S GREAT.

IT IS BASICALLY MUCH MORE

WELCOMING NOW.

Terry: HEAR WHY THESE

CHURCHES HAVE BECOME A

DESTINATION FOR AN ENTIRE

COMMUNITY, WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: WELL, THIS IS

"PASSION" WEEK, AND

CHRISTIANS ALL AROUND THE

WORLD ARE PREPARING FOR

EASTER.

BUT SOME BELIEVERS IN

RURAL ENGLAND ARE

WONDERING IF THEIR

CHURCHES WILL BE HOLDING

SERVICES NEXT YEAR BECAUSE

OF THEIR SHRINKING

CONGREGATIONS.

NOW THERE ARE NEW PLANS TO

SAVE THOSE HISTORIC CHURCH

BUILDINGS, AND TO HELP

MAKE THE CHURCH THE CENTER

OF THE COMMUNITY ONCE

AGAIN.

JOHN JESSUP BRINGS US THIS

STORY.

John: TUCKED AWAY IN

ENGLAND'S MAG-AND-A-HALF MAGNIFICENT

LANDSCAPE LIES THIS SMALL

TOWN.

THIS KIND OF CHURCH COULD

BECOME AN ENDANGERED

SPECIES, IN PART BECAUSE

OF CHANGING DEMOGRAPHICS

AS PEOPLE MIGRATE TO THE

CITY.

A CHURCH OF ENGLAND

REPORTS SHOWS MORE THAN

HALF OF ITS CHURCHES ARE

IN RURAL AREAS, ALTHOUGH

ONLY 17% OF THE POPULATION

LIVES THERE.

THIS MEANS SMALLER

CONGREGATIONS, FURY FEWER

RESOURCES, AND A BLEAK

FUTURE.

GIVEN THE AVERAGE AGE OF

ATTENDEES IS AROUND 55.

WE HAVE TO BE

REALISTIC.

THERE ARE NO TWO WAYS

ABOUT THAT.

John: AND THE DIOCESE

IN ENGLAND MOST POPULATION

COUNTY, THERE ARE OVER 400

ANGLICAN CHURCHES.

MOST HUNDREDS YEARS OLD,

HISTORIC LANDMARKS WORTH

SAVING.

THE REPORT OFFERS SOME

REPORTS, SUCH AS FESTIVAL

CHURCHES, WHICH WOULD ONLY

OPEN ON SPECIAL DAYS, LIKE

CHRISTMAS AND EASTER.

CLOSING THAT DOOR FOR

THE BULK OF THE YEAR WILL

BE A SAD DAY.

HOWEVER, ONE HAS TO BE

REALISTIC AND LOOKING AT

IT THE OTHER WAY: IT IS

JOLLY HARD TO MAINTAIN AND

PAY THE BILLS ON HISTORIC

BUILDINGS.

John: THIS BUILDING

HAS CERTAINLY SEEN A LOT

OF CHANGE OVER THE YEARS

IN THIS ENGLISH VILLAGE,

AND ITS CHURCH HAS FOUND A

WAY TO KEEP UP WITH THE

CHANGING TIMES.

WHEN THIS CHURCH WAS

BUILT, THIS AREA WOULD

HAVE BELONGED TO THE

PEOPLE OF THE VILLAGE.

WE HAVE LOST THAT OVER THE

YEARS, AND THE CHURCH HAS

BECOME A SPECIAL SPACE

THAT ONLY A SPECIAL FEW

CAN GO INTO, AND THAT'S

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO

REVERSE.

John: THE ANSWER CAME

FROM THE GOVERNMENT, AND

THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE THE

CHURCH'S SIZE TO HELP WITH

ITS "EVERY CHILD MATTERS"

PROGRAM.

BUT THERE WOULD NEED TO BE

AN EXTENSIVE MAKEOVER.

THE INSIDE OF THE

CHURCH WAS COLD AND DAMP

AND DARK.

John: THEIR MISSION:

UPDATE THE CHURCH WHILE

KEEPING ITS HISTORY.

A FOUR-YEAR PROCESS LED TO

AN AWARD-WINNING DESIGN,

WELCOMING VILLAGERS TO

MORE THAN JUST CHURCH

SERVICES.

THE ARCHITECT THAT

STANDS IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE AREA -- THAT'S THE

MISSION OF THE FUTURE.

BUT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT

TO STILL HAVE THE LOOK AND

BE THE TRADITIONAL PART OF

THE CHURCH, AND MARRY THE

TWO TOGETHER.

THE BEAUTY OF THE

CHURCH IS MAINTAINED, AND

THEN THERE IS A

CONTEMPORARY LOOK AS WELL.

ONE OR TWO WOULD STILL

RATHER THE PEWS, BUT IN

THE MAIN, PEOPLE HAVE JUST

SEEN THAT INSTEAD OF IT

BEING USED FOR AN HOUR ON

A SUNDAY MORNING, IT IS

NOW USED RIGHT THROUGH

EACH AND EVERY DAY.

John: ST. PETER'S

CENTER OFFERS EVERYTHING

FROM SENIOR EVENTS TO YOGA

CLASSES, AND THE BELL

TOWER NOW SERVES AS A

BRANCH OF THE LOCAL

LIBRARY.

IT IS BRILLIANT.

THE MAIN LIBRARY HAD BEEN

SITTING, AND IT IS CLOSED

FOR REFURBISHMENT, AND SO

THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A

COUNTY LIBRARY IN THE CITY

IS AMAZING.

John: WHEN CRAFT

VENDOR CAROLINE GILBERT

MOVED HER YOUNG FAMILY

HERE, ST. PETER'S CAUGHT

HER ATTENTION WITH ITS

PARENT-TODDLER GROUP.

IT IS A PEACEFUL

BUILDING.

AND IT TAKES A HALF HOUR

TO GET TO, AND IT IS GREAT

TO HAVE THE FACILITY.

WHEN WE REOPENED, ONE

OF THE CHILDREN OUT IN THE

PLAYING FIELD SAID TO THE

OTHER KIDS, COME INTO OUR

CHURCH; IT'S GREAT.

I THINK IT IS BASICALLY

MUCH MORE WELCOMING NOW.

John: WHILE THE

CHURCH OF ENGLAND

ACKNOWLEDGES THERE IS NO

ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL

SOLUTION, THEY SEE ST.

PETER'S AS A MODEL OF

SUCCESS, MAKING THE FUTURE

BRIGHTER THAN BEFORE.

JOHN JESSUP, IN

PETERSVILLE, ENGLAND.

Pat: IEW I'VE GOT MIXED

FEELINGS ON THAT ONE.

THE FREE CHURCH HAS ALWAYS

BEEN WHAT IS VIBRANT.

I VISITED THE ARCHBISHOP

OF YORK, AND HE IS

SPIRIT-FILLED -- AT LEAST

HE WAS WHEN I TALKED TO

HIM.

AND THEY HAVE A VIBRANT

CONGREGATION.

THEY'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF

PEOPLE IN THERE PRAISING

GOLD.

THAT'S WHAPRAISING

GOD.

PRAISING GOD.

THAT'S WHAT THEY NEED, NOT

COMMERCE.

IN ANY EVENT, IT IS A

PRETTY BUILDING.

THERE IS NO LONGER

AWORSHIP THERE.

IT IS A CHURCH THAT HAS

BEEN DECOMMISSIONED.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: COMING UP, A

BANK ROBBER GETS BUSTED.

THERE IS NO WAY OUT.

THEY'RE GOING TO GIVE ME

ALL OF THIS TIME.

I WAS ON MY LAST HOPE.

I'M GOING TO MAKE IT OUT

OF THIS.

Terry: WATCH AS HE

MAKES A PLEA DEAL WITH

GOD, WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: REGGIE FORMAN

WAS IN A TIGHT SPOT.

A SIX BY NINE FOOT SPOT,

ACTUALLY.

THE ONE TIME BANK ROBBER

WAS SITTING IN A JAIL CELL

AND STARING AT THE BARS.

THAT'S WHERE HE CRIED OUT

TO A PERSON HE HARDLY

KNEW, AND HE DEFINITELY

HATED.

I REMEMBER A TIME WHEN

MY MOTHER HAD GOT REAL

VIOLENT, TO WHERE SHE WAS

THROWING WRENCHES AT ME,

TOOLS AT ME, AND I'M

RUNNING OUT OF THE HOUSE,

JUST RUNNING.

Reporter: REGGIE

FORMAN GREW UP IN A

CHICAGO SUBURBS, IN A HOME

AS VIOLENCE AS THE

STREETS.

HIS PARENTS NEVER MARRIED.

HIS FATHER HAD LEFT TO

SERVE IN THE ARMY.

AND HIS TEENAGED MOTHER

WAS AN ADDICT WITH A SHORT

FUSE.

WHAT MADE IT WORSE WAS

I HAD A BROTHER, AND WE

HAD DIFFERENT FATHERS.

AND IT SEEMED LIKE THE

LOVE I WAS SUPPOSED TO

GET, HE GOT IT.

IF I WOULD ARGUE WITH HIM

OR SAY SOMETHING TO HIM,

HE WOULD TELL AND I WOULD

GET HIT.

SHE WOULD TAKE HIS SIDE.

Reporter: SO REGGIE

TURNED TO THE STREETS FOR

ACCEPTANCE.

THERE HE LEARNED TO FIGHT

TO SURVIVE, AND IT ALSO

GAVE HIM AN OUTLET FOR HIS

RAGE.

I WAS ANGRY AT MY MOM.

I WAS ANGRY AT THE

STREETS.

I WANTED TO STOP BEING

BULLIED.

I WANTED THEM TO KNOW, IF

YOU TOUCH ME, I'LL HURT

YOU.

Reporter: THEN HIS

MOTHER STARTED

PROSTITUTING.

REGGIE WANTED OUT.

HE WENT TO MOVE WITH HIS

FATHER, WHO WAS ALSO

MARRIED AND VERY WEALTHY.

IT WAS A NEW HOME AND NEW

LIFE FOR REGGIE, BUT HIS

FATHER HAD HIGH

EXPECTATIONS.

HE ALWAYS SAID, YOU CAN

BE BETTER THAN ME, BUT IT

WAS LIKE HE WAS TRYING TO

FORCE ME.

I'M 14 YEARS OLD, AND I

WANT TO WATCH HIP-HOP AND

RAP.

Reporter: DETERMINED

TO DO HIS OWN THING,

REGGIE JOINED A GANG.

HE WAS EVENTUALLY KICKED

OUT OF TWO SCHOOLS.

HE DISCOVERED HIS FATHER

HAD BEEN DEALING IN DRUGS

AND PROSTITUTES.

NOW, THIS IS VERY HARD

BECAUSE MY FATHER WAS

SUITS AND SUSPENDERS AND

CLEAN-CUT.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE MY

FATHER HAD BEEN DOING

THIS.

MY FATHER WAS A PIMP.

HE WOULD START

DISAPPEARING.

I STARTED SEEING HIM EVERY

COUPLE OF WEEKS, AND I

STARTED GETTING INTO MORE

AND MORE TROUBLE.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

REGGIE'S FATHER SENT HIM

TO ALABAMA TO LIVE WITH

HIS GRANDMOTHER.

I REMEMBER MY

GRANDMOTHER WOULD SAY,

YOU'VE GOT TO TRUST IN

GOD.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND, HOW

DID GOD LOVE ME.

I THOUGHT, OKAY, WHEN I

GET 30 AND GET MARRIED,

I'LL STOP WHAT I'M DOING.

Reporter: REGGIE

MOVED BACK TO MIAMI WHEN

HE WAS 18, TRYING TO MAKE

IT ON HIS OWN.

BUT WITH NO JOB AND NO

MONEY, HE RESORTED TO

DESPERATE MEASURES.

I'M IN A HOUSE WITH NO

POWER AND NO LIGHTS, AND

I'VE GOT FRIENDS MAKING

MONEY, $1500 A DAY DOING

ROBBERIES AND SELLING

DRUGS.

SO A BANK ROBBERY MADE

SENSE.

WE'RE GOING TO GET IN

AND OUT.

I WAS ON MY LAST HOPE,

SUICIDAL, AND I NEEDED

THIS MONEY.

Reporter: THEY GOT

AWAY WITH $2200.

BUT POLICE TRACKED REGGIE

DOWN, AND HE WAS CONVICTED

OF ARMED ROBBERY.

I'M GOING TO MAKE IT

OUT OF THIS.

THIS IS WHAT I WAS TOLD,

GOD WILL HELP YOU OUT.

SO I STARTED PRAYING AND

READING THE BIBLE.

Reporter: BUT WHEN HE

RECEIVED TWO CONSECUTIVE

SENTENCES, HE STARTED IN A

RAGE.

I STARTED CURSING AND

SAYING, WHERE WERE YOU

WHEN MY MOTHER WAS BEATEN?

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I WAS

HUNGRY?

I REMEMBER SAYING TO GOD,

I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP.

I WAS REPENTING AFTER I

LASHED OUT AT GOD.

RIGHT AFTER THAT, I FELT A

WARM PEACE COME OVER ME.

I FELT LIKE SOMEBODY WAS

IN THE CELL WITH ME.

HE SPOKE TO ME AND SAID,

I'VE GOT A PURPOSE FOR

YOU.

IT WASN'T JUST I WANT YOU

TO BE SAVED AND GO TO

HEAVEN.

HE SHOWED ME AT THAT

MOMENT, I HAVE A PURPOSE

FOR YOU.

I WAS, LIKE, WOW, ALMIGHTY

GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR ME.

Reporter: THAT

DERECHDAYREGGIE GAVE HIS LIFE TO

CHRIST.

HE WAS RELEASED ON APPEAL

IN 2008.

TODAY HE IS MARRIED AND IS

THE C.E.O. OF A CLOTHING

CHAIN, NATIONWIDE.

GOD HAS A PURPOSE NO

MATTER WHAT YOUR PAIN IS.

MY PURPOSE IS TO LET

PEOPLE KNOW THAT GOD IS

REAL AND THAT HE IS LOVE.

I KNOW WHAT GOD CAN DO.

Pat: WHAT A

TESTIMONY: I HAVE A

PURPOSE FOR YOU.

I HAVE A PURPOSE.

YOU KNOW, HE'S GOT A

PURPOSE FOR EVERY ONE OF

US.

AND THERE IS ONE THING

THAT NONE OF US CAN DO.

I CAN'T WHAT YOU CA DO WHAT YOU CAN

DO.

SOME OF THE GREAT

PREACHERS CAN'T DO WHAT

YOU CAN DO.

YOU ARE SPECIAL.

AND WILL IS ONLY ONE WAY

THAT GOD CAN BE GLORIFIED

IN A PARTICULAR WAY, AND

THAT'S THROUGH YOU.

YOU ARE UNIQUE.

AND HE HAS A PURPOSE FOR

YOU.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

HE HAS SOMETHING FOR YOU

TO DO.

THINK OF REGGIE.

HIS MOTHER IS A

PROSTITUTE.

HIS FATHER IS A PIMP.

BEATEN UP WHEN HE WAS A

LITTLE KID.

IT'S AMAZING WHAT

HAPPENED.

BUT GOD SPEAKS TO HIM AND

SAYS, I'VE GOT A PURPOSE

FOR YOU.

LOOK, THE LORD LOVES YOU.

AND RIGHT NOW I'M GOING TO

GIVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO

DO SOMETHING.

RIGHT NOW I WANT YOU TO

PRAY WITH ME AND LET GOD

SPEAK TO YOU.

LISTEN TO WHAT HE IS GOING

TO SAY RIGHT NOW.

THESE WORDS, JESUS --

THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY WITH

ME.

JESUS, I KNOW YOU DIED FOR

ME.

I KNOW YOU ROSE AGAIN THAT

I MIGHT LIVE.

GOD, I COME TO YOU RIGHT

NOW AND I KNOW THAT YOU

HAVE A PURPOSE FOR ME.

SHOW ME THAT PURPOSE.

I RECEIVE YOU AS SAVIOR.

AND I MAKE YOU LORD OF MY

LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD, THA, THAT

YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU, THAT YOU'VE

COME INTO MY HEART.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I WANT YOU TO GET UP

AND GO TO YOUR TELEPHONE.

OR IF YOU'VE GOT A PHONE

IN YOUR HAND, DIAL THE

NUMBER.

IT'S: 1-800-759-0700.

SAY, LOOK, I JUST PRAYED

WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD, AND NOW HE IS GOING

TO REVEAL HIS PURPOSE AND

PLAN TO ME.

AND WE WANT TO SEND YOU

SOMETHING THAT WILL HELP

YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND WE'LL GIVE THAT TO

YOU.

THAT'S NOT IMPORTANT.

BUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS

YOU CALL.

THE TELEPHONES ARE

AVAILABLE.

I WANT YOU TO GO RIGHT

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

OKAY?

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, IT'S A NECESSITY OF

LIFE, AND YET OVER A

BILLION PEOPLE DON'T HAVE

ACCESS TO IT.

WHAT MOVES ME THE MOST

IS TO THINK ABOUT MOTHERS

LOSING THEIR CHILDREN

BECAUSE OF SOMETHING THAT

WE COULD TAKE CARE OF.

Terry: WATCH ONE

CHURCH BRING WATER TO THE

WORLD WHEN WE COME BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THE PERCENTAGE OF

AMERICANS WHO PRAY TOR OR

BELIEVE IN GOD HIT AN

ALL-TIME LOW IN 2014, BUT

A SLIGHTLY HIGHER

PERCENTAGE DO NOW BELIEVE

IN AN AFTER LIFE.

THAT IS ACCORDING TO NEW

RESEARCH FROM SAN DIEGO

STATE, FLORIDA, ATLANTIC

AND BIG WESTERN RESERVE.

YOUNGER AMERICANS FROM

AGES 18 TO 29 WERE THE

DECLINE.

THE LARGE DECLINE IN

RELIGIOUS PRACTICE AMONG

THE YOUNG ADULTS FURTHER

PREVIOUS THAT THE YOUNG

MILLENNIALS ARE THE LEAST

RELIGIOUS GENERATION

PERHAPS IN HISTORY.

> THE NEW FAITH-BASED

FILM ""MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN" FINISHED NUMBER

THREE FOR THE WEEKEND.

IT HAS BROUGHT IN MORE

THAN $18 MILLION SINCE IT

OPENED ON WEDNESDAY.

THE AUDIENCES GAVE IT AN

"A" PLUS, WHICH WOULD

INDICATE IT WILL KEEP

DOING WELL IN THE WEEKS

AHEAD.

THE STORY TELLS THE TRUE

STORY OF HOW YOUNG ANNA

BEAM WAS BORN WITH A RARE,

INCURABLE DISEASE, BUT IS

HEALED AFTER SHE SURVIVES

A FREAK ACCIDENT.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

*

Terry: BETTER WATER,

BETTER JOBS, THAT'S THE

THEME OF THIS YEAR'S

"WORLD WATER DAY."

THE QUANTITY AND QUALITY

OF AVAILABLE WATER IS

CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO

LIVE.

LIFE.

THAT CLARION CALL WAS

HEARD BY ONE TEXAS CHURCH

WHO TEAMED WITH CBN TO

DRENCH THE WORLD.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: EVERY 20

SECONDS, ONE CHILD DIES

BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE

ACCESS TO SAFE DRINKING

WATER.

IT IS A TROUBLING NUMBER

THAT TOUCHED THE HEART OF

PASTOR ROD BREWER OF A

CHURCH IN MESQUITE, TEXAS.

WHAT MOVES ME THE MOST

IS TO THINK ABOUT MOTHERS

LOSING THEIR CHILDREN

BECAUSE OF SOMETHING WE

COULD TAKE CARE OF.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

REACHED OUT TO CBN TO FIND

OUT HOW HIS CHURCH WOULD

BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION.

FOR NEARLY TWO DECADES,

OVER 6.2 MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE BENEFITED FROM MORE

THAN 15,000 WELLS BUILT BY

CBN.

CBN HAS THE PERSONNEL,

PROJECTS, AND EQUIPMENT

ALREADY IN PLACE.

SO BY WORKING TOGETHER, WE

CAN BOTH ACCOMPLISH MORE

ON LESS.

IF A CHURCH HAS A DREAM, A

DESIRE TO DO SOMETHING,

CHANCES ARE CBN IS ALREADY

THERE DOING THE HEAVY

LIFTING, AND BY COMING

TOGETHER, WE CAN BOTH

ACCOMPLISH MORE.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

LEARNED THAT ONE WELL

COULD GIVE DESPERATE

COMMUNITIES THE CLEAN

WATER THEY NEED TO SURVIVE

AND THRIVE.

WE THREW IT AROUND THE

STAFF, AND THE NEXT THING

WE KNEW, WE CAME UP WITH

THE VISION WE'RE GOING TO

DO 25 WELLS.

Reporter: WITH EACH

WELL COSTING $1800, THEY

WOULD NEED COMMITMENT AND

SUPPORT FROM THE

CONGREGATION.

ON WORLD WATER DAY IN

2015, PASTOR BREWER AND

CHURCH LEADERS MADE THEIR

APPEAL.

THE STAFF HANDED OUT

BOTTLES OF DIRTY DRINKING

WATER TO SEE FOR

THEMSELVES WHAT MILLIONS

HAVE TO DRINK EVERY DAY.

WE BROKE IT DOWN TO THE

SINGLE MOMS WOULD

PARTICIPATE IF THEY GAVE

$3 A WEEK.

SO WE PUT VALUE ON NO

MATTER WHAT YOUR SOCIAL

STATUS IS -- WE PUT VALUE

ON YOU GETTING ON BOARD

AND PLAYING YOUR PART.

Reporter: THE CHURCH

RESPONDED.

SO AS THEY CAME DOWN

AND GAVE THEIR COMMITMENT

CARDS, WE HAD MOCK WATER

WELLS UP, AND EVERYBODY

CAME TO THE ALTER AND PUT

THEIR COMMITMENT CARDS IN

THE BUCKET.

Reporter: AFTER

COUNTING THE CARDS, THE

STAFF WAS ASTONISHED.

THAT DAY THE CHURCH GAVE

MORE THAN ENOUGH TO

SURPASS THEIR GOAL OF 25

WELLS.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE

MOMENTS WHERE WE REALIZED

WE HAD SHOT WAY TOO LOW,

AND GOD WAS CAPABLE OF SO

MUCH MORE THAN WHAT WE

DREAMED ABOUT.

I HAD TO TAKE OFF

RUNNING, I WAS SO EXCITED.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL, JOYOUS

SUNDAY MORNING, AS WE KNEW

WE WERE ON OUR WAY TO

EXCEEDING WHAT WE HAD

PLANNED TO DO FOR THE

WORLD.

Reporter: BY THE END

OF THE YEAR, THE CHURCH

SPONSORED 75 WELLS TO BE

CONSTRUCTED IN SEVERAL

COUNTRIES.

A DROP OF WATER FOR EACH

WELL.

ALSO PHOTOS AND

TESTIMONIES OF THE PEOPLE

THEY'VE HELPED.

WE GIVE GOD ALL OF THE

GLORY.

IT IS EXCITING TO KNOW

THAT THIS CHURCH ON THE

OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD

HAS LITERALLY SAVED

THOUSANDS OF LIVES, OF NOT

ONLY LITTLE KIDS, BUT

YOUNG PEOPLE, MEN AND

WOMEN, AND THE BOYS AND

THE GIRLS.

IT'S A VERY EXCITING

THING.

AND NOT A TEMPORARY THING,

BUT AN ONGOING THING.

Reporter: THE CHURCH

SAYS PARTNERSHIP WITH CBN

MADE THEIR VISION A

REALITY.

I WOULD CHALLENGE ANY

CHURCH LISTENING TO WHAT

WE'RE SHARING TODAY,

PASTORS, GET A VISION.

MAYBE JUST START WITH ONE

WELL.

IT MAY TAKE YOU A YEAR TO

BUILD ONE WELL.

BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT?

AT THE END OF THE DAY IT

WILL BE A GOOD THING.

YOU WILL SAVE LIVES.

Reporter: A LOCAL

CHURCH GOING BEYOND ITS

WALLS AND ABOVE THE LIMIT

TO PROVIDE CLEAN, SAFE

WATER FOR THOSE IN NEED.

WELL, I THINK

PERSONALLY MY RESPONSE IS

JUST A THANKFULNESS FOR

GOD JUST DOING

EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY

ABOVE ALL WE COULD

IMAGINE.

Terry: THAT'S HIS

PROMISE, BUT WE HAVE TO

TAKE THE FIRST STEP OUT.

I LOVE WHAT THIS CHURCH IS

DOING.

IT IS SAFE TO SAY THAT THE

POWER OF ONE CHURCH TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS

IMMEASURABLE.

YOU LOOKED AT THE STORY OF

THESE PEOPLE WHO HAD SUCH

A HEART FOR THOSE WHO

DIDN'T HAVE CLEAN WATER.

THAT'S A LOT OF THE WORLD.

YOU AND I GO TO THE TAP

AND GET WATER ANY TIME WE

WANT TO.

WE SHOWER WHENEVER WE WANT

TO.

THE REST OF THE WORLD

DOESN'T LIVE LIKE THAT.

YOU AND I HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

THIS IS "WORD WATER DAY"

TODAY.

AND WE'RE IN LIVING WATER

MONTH.

WILL YOU MAKE A COMMITMENT

TODAY TO DO SOMETHING TO

HELP OTHERS LIKE THIS?

YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW MANY

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD

DON'T DO ANYTHING DURING

THE DAY BUT JUST SPENDING

THE DAY TRYING TO FIGURE

OUT HOW TO GET WATER.

AND THE WATER IS NOT

DRINKABLE, BUT THEY DO

ANYWAY BECAUSE IT IS ALL

THAT IS AVAILABLE TO THEM.

SPONSOR SOME OF THE WELLS

AROUND THE WORLD.

IF YOU'RE AN INDIVIDUAL,

BE THE PERSON INSIDE YOUR

CHURCH THAT MAKES THAT

HAPPEN.

YOU DO IT BY CALLING

1-800-759-0700 AND SAYING,

I WANT TO BE PART OF THE

WATER WELL MOVEMENT GOING

ON AT CBN.

LISTEN, WHEN YOU JOIN "THE

700 CLUB," YOU ARE A PART

OF THAT.

THAT'S 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH.

AND OUR WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU TO YOU FOR

JOINING "THE 700 CLUB" IS

TO SEND YOU PAT'S LATEST

TEACHING: "HEAVEN, WHAT

GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE

WHO LOVE HIM."

THERE WILL BE FRESH WATER

UP THERE.

TEDDY FROM OHIO SAYS,

"IT'S THE BEST TEACHING

ABOUT HEAVEN I'VE EVER

SEEN.

PAT ANSWERED QUESTIONS ON

MANY PEOPLE'S MINDS.

CAN'T THINK YOU ENOUGH FOR

THE "HEAVEN" D.V.D.."

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," SO CALL NOW.

A WONDERFUL DAY TO START.

WELL, "WORLD WATER DAY"

ISN'T THE ONLY THING WE'RE

CELEBRATING TODAY.

BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO BE

BREAKING OUT THE CANDLING

AND THE CAKE.

IT'S PAT'S BIRTHDAY.

Pat: YAY!

Terry: FIRST OR THE

E-MAIL QUESTIONS, HELEN

SAYS, "IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE

IS COMMITTING TAX FRAUD,

SHOULD YOU REPORT THEM?"

IT'S ONLY FITTING WE

SHOULD DO THIS ON PAT'S

BIRTHDAY, DON'T YOU THINK?

Wendy: TO LISTEN TO

OUR TOP SONGS OF THE WEEK,

GO TO CBN RADIO AT

cbn.com.

Terry: WELL, WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE GOING TO ANSWER SOME

OF YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS

IN OUR BRON "BRING IT ON."

HELEN SAYS, "IF YOU KNOW

SOMEONE IS COMMITTING TAX

FRAUD AND RECEIVING A

REFUND, SHOULD YOU INFORM

THE I.R.S.

IT SEEMS THEY'RE STEALING

FROM PEOPLE."

Pat: I THINK SOMEBODY

WHO WOULD TURN A FRIEND

INTO THE I.R.S. IS THE

LOWEST OF THE LOW.

GO TO THAT PERSON AND SAY,

LISTEN, YOU'RE CHEATING

THE GOVERNMENT.

YOU REALLY OUGHT TO STOP

THIS.

BUT SHOULD YOU TURN THEM

IN?

NO WAY.

I JUST DON'T THINK THAT'S

WHAT WE OUGHT TO DO.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: I WOULD AGREE

WITH YOU.

THIS IS CHERYL WHO SAYS,

"MY DAUGHTER IS PLANNING A

WEDDING AND WOULD LIKE A

PASTOR TO PERFORM THE

CEREMONY.

HOWEVER, SHE AND HER

PARTNER DON'T GO TO A

CHURCH.

EVERY PASTOR HAS SAID THEY

NEED TO GO TO COUNSELLING

BEFORE THEY WOULD MARRY

THEM.

NOW THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT

GOING TO A JUSTICE OF THE

PEACE.

DOES GOD RECOGNIZE THESE

MARRIAGES?"

Pat: GOD RECOGNIZES A

COMMITMENT YOU MAKE TO

EACH OTHER.

BUT I THINK WHAT THESE

PASTORS ARE DOING IS

TELLING YOU SOMETHING YOU

NEED TO KNOW.

YOU NEED COUNSELLING.

YOU START OFF LIFE WITHOUT

KNOWING WHAT IT IS YOU

NEED TO DO.

I THINK THESE PASTORS ARE

DOING YOU A GREAT FAVOR

AND YOU OUGHT TO TAKE

THEIR ADVICE AND LISTEN TO

WHAT THEY HAVE TO TELL

YOU.

Terry: I THINK MOST

OF THE TIME PEOPLE ARE

AFRAID THEY'RE GOING TO

TELL YOU YOU SHOULDN'T

MARRY EACH OTHER.

BUT REALLY THEY ARE THERE

TO GIVE YOU WISE ADVICE ON

HOW TO BE HAPPILY MARRIED.

KAREN SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

HAS A BAD HABIT OF USING

FOUR-LETTER WORDS.

WE'RE BOTH CHRISTIANS, AND

IT REALLY BOTHERS ME THAT

HE DOES THIS.

I USUALLY TELL HIM TO

STOP, AND I'VE PRAYED

ABOUT IT, TOO.

WHAT CAN I SAY THAT WOULD

BE HELPFUL TO THEM?"

Pat: WHAT DO THEY

SAY, PROFANITY IS A SINFUL

MIND TRYING TO SPEAK.

IF YOU LOOK BACK AT THE

FOUR-LETTER WORDS, THE

ANGLO SAXONS WERE THE POOR

AND THE MORMONS WERE THE

RICH.

SO YOU FIND ALL OF THESE

WORDS, THE "F" WORD AND

THE "S" WORD AND ALL OF

THOSE WORDS, THEY'RE THE

EXPRESSIONS OF THE POOR IN

ENGLAND TO DESCRIBE

VARIOUS BODILY FUNCTIONS,

AND WE'VE MADE THEM INTO

CURSE WORDS.

I THINK ALL THAT DOES, THE

CURSING PART, SHOWS THAT

YOUR HUSBAND IS

UNEDUCATED, AND HE DOESN'T

HAVE A GOOD ENOUGH

VOCABULARY.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS IS MARIANNE WHO SAYS,

"I WAS HEALED OF CANCER IN

2010.

I WANT TO KNOW IF I

DISOBEY JESUS, CAN HE TAKE

AWAY HIS BLESSING AND

HEALING?

I'M BEING CONSUMED WITH

CONDEMNATION FOR GETTING

INVOLVED WITH AN

UNBELIEVER AND GOING TO

HIM WITH MY PROBLEMS.

I TRIED TO BRING HIM TO

THE LORD, BUT HE DOESN'T

CARE TO HEAR ANYTHING

ABOUT IT."

Pat: I RECOMMEND YOU

BREAK OFF THAT

RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE

YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY ASHAMED

OF IT.

BUT IS THE LORD GOING TO

WITHDRAW HIS BLESSING?

I DON'T THINK SO.

BUT -- YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE

SAYS IF OUR HEART DOES NOT

CONDEMN US, THEN WE HAVE

CONFIDENCE WITH THE LORD.

AND YOUR HEART CONDEMNS

YOU, SO YOU COME TO GOD,

AND YOU'RE ASKING HIM FOR

SOMETHING WHILE YOU'RE OWN

HEART IS CONDEMNING YOU.

WHATEVER IT IS YOU'RE

DOING WITH THIS GUY -- I

DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE

HAVING SEX -- YOU'RE NOT

SAYING THAT.

YOU ARE SAYING YOU GAVE

HIM YOUR PROBLEMS -- I

DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

IN ANY EVENT, I RECOMMEND

BREAKING THAT OFF.

Terry: THIS IS DAVID

WHO SAYS, "HIGH, PAT.

"HI, PAT.

AM I SINNING BY WATCHING

MOVIES WITH SINNING AND

TAKING THE LORD'S NAME IN

VAIN?

I DON'T WEAR MYSELF."

Pat: IT IS SUCH

GROSSNESS.

IF YOU GO TO A MOVIE, YOU

HAVE BOUGHT A TICKET AND

YOU HAVE GIVEN YOUR MONEY

TO ENCOURAGE THAT.

IF YOU WATCH ON TELEVISION

AND YOU'RE PART OF A

RATING SYSTEM, THEN

THEY'VE RATED YOU.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY,

BUT THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID

IF WE DON'T ASSOCIATE WITH

THE UNGODLY IN THIS WORLD,

IT MEANS WE HAVE TO LEAVE

THE WORLD.

THE WORLD IS UNGODLY.

IT'S PRETTY HARD TO GET

AWAY FROM ALL OF THE

PROFANITY AND THE

GROSSNESS THAT IS OUT

THERE.

Terry: WELL, THAT'S

ALL OF THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR QUESTIONS TODAY.

WE ARE ALWAYS GRATEFUL TO

HEAR FROM YOU.

DON'T GO AWAY JUST YET

BECAUSE WE DO HAVE A

SPECIAL CELEBRATION RIGHT

AROUND THE CORNER.

PAT ROBERTSON TURNS 86

YEARS YOUNG.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE BACK TO

CELEBRATE.

Pat: WOW!

*

Terry: WELL, THIS

ISN'T ALL OF US, BUT SOME

OF US HAVE GATHERED TO

CELEBRATE YOUR 86 BIRTHDAY

FOR JUST A COUPLE OF

MINUTES.

Pat: IT'S AMAZING.

Terry: WITH ALL OF

YOU AT HOME.

WE WISH YOU A HAPPY,

WONDERFUL, HEALTH-FILLED

Pat: AND I HAVE MY

TROPHY WIFE.

Terry: AND SHE IS.

Terry: SO WHAT ARE

WE'RE GOING OUT.

WISDOM.

SHE HAS COME ALL THE WAY

Pat: THIS IS MY

OLDEST DAUGHTER HERE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DADDY.

Terry: IT IS SO GREAT

TO HAVE YOU TOGETHER.

Pat: I HAVE SUCH

LOVELY LADIES IN MY

FAMILY, THEY KEEP ME

YOUNG.

Terry: YOU ALL ARE A

SMALL VILLAGE.

Pat: WE HAVE FOUR

CHILDREN, 14

GRANDCHILDREN, AND SEVEN

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN AND

MORE COMING.

AND THERE SEVEN

WEDDINGS --

Pat: WITH THE

GRANDCHILDREN.

Terry: AND YOU ALL DO

THOSE WELL.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: WE'VE GOT A

DELICIOUS CAKE HERE.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

TO YOU FOR YOUR VISION AND

YOUR LEADERSHIP.

WE JUST LOVE AND ADMIRE

YOU.

Pat: THE LORD HELPS

ME.

HE HAS GIVEN ME STRENGTH.

YOU YOU KEE KEEP GOING AND YOU

DON'T FEEL ANY DIFFERENT.

I GUESS 80s ARE THE NEW

60s.

Terry: WE'RE GOING

WITH THAT.

DEE DEE, YOU ARE THE

EXPERT AT THIS.

I ALWAYS KIND OF BULK A

LITTLE.

HOW DO I CUT THIS?

OR WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO

IT?

Pat: IT'S SO PRETTY,

BUT GO AHEAD AND CUT A

PIECE, DEAR.

Terry: LOOK AT THAT.

BLESS YOU.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

Pat: GOD BLESS ALL OF

YOU.

THANK YOU.
