The 700 Club - April 5, 2016

CBN Sports is in Houston as the NCAA Final Four crowns a new college basketball champion. Plus, her father left a dark legacy that overshadowed Candice Wiggins’ journey to make a name for herself in basketball. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING

UP...ONE JOURNALIST GOES

UNDERCOVER TO LEARN HOW

THE FOOD INDUSTRY IS LYING

TO YOU.

AND...KILLING YOU.

PLUS...

IT HIT ME LIKE A

KNOCK-OUT PUNCH.

Wendy: A FORMER NBA

STANDOUT STEPS OUT OF THE

SHADOWS.

CANDACE WIGGINS LAYS IT

ALL OUT.

IT'S, LIKE, OH, MY

GOSH, THIS IS AN ANSWERED

PRAYER.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

HAV GOT A HOT PRIMARY

GOING ON IN WISCONSIN.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE SENATOR

CRUZ IS AHEAD.

BUT THERE IS ONE QUESTION

THAT HAS BEEN TURNING OVER

IN MY MIND.

SCOTT WALKER IS A HERO OF

THE TEA PARTY.

HE IS A HERO OF

REPUBLICANS.

HE STOOD AGAINST THE

UNIONS, THE PUBLIC UNIONS,

AND WON.

HE WON A RECALL ELECTION.

HE IS VERY POPULAR IN

WISCONSIN.

SO I ASK MYSELF WHY DOES

DONALD TRUMP GO TO

WISCONSIN AND ATTACK SCOTT

WALKER?

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

Terry: I DON'T KNOW,

EITHER.

Pat: BUT THIS IS NOT

PRESIDENTIAL.

YOU ASK YOURSELF, HOW MANY

OF THESE GAFFES HAVE YOU

GOT TO PUT UP WITH?

THIS IS GOING TO BE THE

LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD.

I JUST HAVE A FEELING

WE'RE LOOKING AT A STALL

IN THE DONALD.

AND PERHAPS A CONTESTED

ELECTION.

Terry: DO YOU THINK

SO?

Pat: YES.

Terry: PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN SPECULATING THAT.

Pat: IT MAY BE COMING

UP.

THE STUFF -- SCOTT WALKER

IS KIND OF LIKE A HERO --

Terry: NOT KIND OF

LIKE.

HE IS A HERO, AT LEAST IN

WISCONSIN.

Pat: YOU DON'T GO TO

WISCONSIN AND ATTACK THEIR

HERO.

IT IS SO

COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.

THAT, TO ME, COULD KIND OF

TIP THE SCALE.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Terry: IT WILL BE AN

INTERESTING EVENING.

Pat: I LIKE THE

DONALD, AND I WOULD JUST

SAY TO HIM, AND I'M SURE

HIS FAMILY IS SAYING,

DONALD, ACT PRESIDENTIAL.

AND YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT

THE SIZE OF YOUR MALE

MEMBER.

AND YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT

ALL OF THIS OTHER STUFF.

THIS IS NOT PRESIDENTIAL.

YOU JUST AREN'T ACTING

PRESIDENTIAL.

AND YOU DON'T GET INTO

STREET FIGHTS LIKE A

LITTLE 12-YEAR-OLD.

Terry: YEAH.

I THINK PEOPLE LONG FOR

PRESIDENTIAL AND

EFFECTIVE.

THE COMBINATION OF THE TWO

WOULD BE WONDERFUL.

Pat: RONALD REAGAN

WAS VERY PRESIDENTIAL.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

Pat: BUT HE TOOK ON

THE UNIONS.

HE TOOK ON THIS, HE TOOK

ON THE OTHER, AND HE HAD A

VISION FOR AMERICA.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE WANT.

WE WANT A VISION FOR THE

GREATNESS OF AMERICA.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

Pat: SO, PLEASE,

PLEASE.

Terry: WELL, ON THE

DEMOCRATIC SIDE, BERNIE

SANDERS ISN'T GIVING UP IN

HIS BATTLE AGAINST HILLARY

CLINTON.

THE SOCIAL LIST SENATOR

HAS A SLIGHT LEAD IN THE

POLLS IN WISCONSIN.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP'S FRONT-RUNNER

STATUS COULD BE IN JE DE.

JEOPARDY.

THE LATEST POLLS SHOWS

CRUZ AHEAD BY FIVE TO 10

POINTS.

YOUR VOTE IS GOING TO

BE VERY IMPORTANT.

BECAUSE THE WORLD IS

WATCHING WISCONSIN.

Reporter: IT COULD

MAKE IT HARDER FOR TRUMP

TO WIN THE REPUBLICAN

NOMINATION OUTRIGHT,

INCREASING THE LIKELIHOOD

OF A CONTESTED CONVENTION.

I THINK THE ENERGY AND

THE ENTHUSIASM AND THE

MOMENTUM WE'RE SEEING IS

AS A RESULT OF THE FACT OF

THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE

AND THE PEOPLE OF THE

COUNTRY ARE LOOKING FOR

REAL, POSITIVE SOLUTIONS,

NOT SIMPLY SOMEONE TO YELL

AND SCREAM AND CURSE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

HILLARY CLINTON ISN'T

LEADING IN WISCONSIN,

EITHER.

SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS

CURRENTLY AHEAD BY FOUR

POINTS, ACCORDING TO THE

LATEST MARQUETTE

UNIVERSITY POLL.

WE HAVE WON SIX OUT OF

THE LAST SEVEN CAUCUSES

AND PRIMARIES.

Reporter: A LOSS FOR

CLINTON IN WISCONSIN

WOULDN'T LIKELY COST HER

THE NOMINATION, BUT IT

WILL HELP SANDERS KEEP UP

HIS MOMENTUM.

CLINTON HELD RALLIES IN

NEW YORK, VOWING TO

INCREASE MINIMUM WAGE

NATIONALLY.

THIS IS SOMETHING ELSE

THAT AMERICANS DESERVE

ACROSS OUR COUNTRY, AND I,

AGAIN, WILL PROUDLY TAKE

WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE IN

NEW YORK AND GO TO

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: BOTH

CLINTON AND TRUMP FACE

TOUGH ROADBLOCKS IN

WISCONSIN, ON THE PATH TO

THE NOMINATIONS OF THEIR

PARTIES.

AHEAD OF TODAY'S VOTING,

IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE

EITHER ONE OF THEM WIN IN

THE BADGER STATE.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, CAITLIN.

THEY HAVE HAD JOE

McCARTHY FROM WISCONSIN,

AND ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE.

WISCONSIN IS AN

INTERESTING STATE.

Terry: PEOPLE LOVE

EVERYTHING THERE.

Pat: AND THEY SAY

THEY ARE MIDWEST FRIENDLY.

THEY'RE VERY FRIENDLY

PEOPLE.

AND THEY TALK ABOUT

CHEESEHEADS AND ALL OF THE

REST OF IT, BUT --

Terry: THEY'RE

STRONGLY OPINIONATED.

IT WILL BE VERY

INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THE

CHIPS FALL TONIGHT.

Pat: THIS IS THE MOST

EDUCATED ELECTORATE

BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN

SCHOOLED IN ALL OF THE

RECALL ELECTIONS AND ALL

OF THESE OTHER THINGS.

SCOTT WALKER IS A SUPER

GUY, AND HE HAS BEEN ON

THE SHOW.

AND HE HAS JUST BEEN A

FABULOUS GOVERNOR, AND HE

IS ABOUT AS COURAGEOUS AS

ANY POLITICIAN -- HE'S NOT

A POLITICIAN, BUT ANY

PUBLIC FIGURE IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

AND COURAGE IS IMPORTANT.

AND ANOTHER WISCONSINITE

WHO IS LOOKED UPON AS A

POTENTIAL OF THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

PAUL RYAN, THE SPEAKER OF

THE HOUSE, IS IN ISRAEL TO

REASSURE THE JEWISH NATION

THAT THE UNITED STATES IS

STANDING BEHIND IT.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: THANKS, PAT.

SPEAKER RYAN MET WITH

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU TO DISCUSS THE

RISE OF ISLAMIC TERRORISM

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

ACCORDING TO THE JERUSALEM

POST, RYAN SAID HE CAME TO

ISRAEL TO SHOW HIS SUPPORT

AND SEE HOW THE TWO ALLIES

COULD BETTER COOPERATE TO

WIN THIS WAR AGAINST

RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

RYAN EMPHASIZED RADICAL

ISLAM, AND THAT IS IN

SHARP CONTRAST TO

PRESIDENT OBAMA, WHO HAS

CONSISTENTLY AVOIDED THAT

REFERENCE.

AND RYAN MET WITH THE

SPEAKER OF THE KNESSET.

WHETHER IT IS THE WHITE

HOUSE OR THE MAJORITY IN

CONGRESS, WE HAVE GOOD

FRIENDS IN THE WHITE HOUSE

AND ON THE HILL.

YOU CAN REST ASSURED OF

THAT.

John: SPEAKER RYAN

MADE THE TRIP WITH A

BIPARTISAN CONGRESSIONAL

DELEGATION.

> ISLAMIC MILITANTS

MURDERED A CHRISTIAN MAN

IN BANGLADESH.

HUSSEIN ALI WAS A FORMER

MUSLIM WHO CONVERTED TO

CHRISTIANITY IN 1999.

HE SUFFERED PERSECUTION

FOR MANY YEARS SINCE

MUSLIMS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO

LEAVE THEIR RELIGION.

TWO WEEKS AGO, THE

65-YEAR-OLD WAS ATTACKED

BY THREE PEOPLE WHO THREW

A FIREBOMB AT HIM BEFORE

HACKING HIM TO DEATH WITH

SHARP WEAPONS.

"OPEN DOORS" REPORTS

FELLOW CHRISTIANS THERE

ARE CONCERNED THEY COULD

FACE AN ESCALATION AND

PERSECUTION FROM ISLAMIC

EXTREMISTS.

> HERE AT HOME,

MISSISSIPPI RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM BILL IS IN THE

HANDS OF REPUBLICAN

BRYANT.

CRITICS SAY THE BILL WOULD

DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE

LGBT COMMUNITY, BUT

SUPPORTERS SAY IT PROTECTS

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

IT WOULD ALLOW SCHOOLS AND

BUSINESSES TO SET

GENDER-SPECIFIC RULES

ABOUT HOW A PERSON DRESS

OR WHICH BATHROOMS EACH

GENDER MUST USE.

SOME BUSINESSES OPPOSE THE

BILL.

MISSISSIPPI IS ONE OF 10

STATES TO PASS, OR TO

CONSIDER PASSING,

LEGISLATION TO PROTECT

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AFTER

THE SUPREME COURT

LEGALIZED GAY MARRIAGE

LAST SUMMER.

PAT?

Pat: YOU KNOW, IF THE

COURT WOULD STAY OUT OF

OUR LIFE -- THEY HAVE

INSERTED THEMSELVES INTO

THINGS THEY HAD NO

BUSINESS GETTING INVOLVED

IN.

ROE VS. WADE IS AN

EXAMPLE.

THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT

TO THE STATES.

INSTEAD THAT, THEY

FEDERALIZED ABORTION.

THEY HAVE NOW FEDERALIZED

HOMOSEXUALITY, AND THEY'RE

PROBABLY GOING TO

FEDERALIZE THE USE OF

VARIOUS BATHROOMS.

THAT IS BENEATH THE

DIGNITY OF THE SUPREME

COURT, AND IT IS NOT

SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE A

FEDERAL MATTER.

WE HAVE 50 STATES, AND THE

STATES SHOULD BE ABLE TO

SPEAK ON THESE MATTERS.

AND I THINK IT IS TIME WE

GET TO WHAT THE

CONSTITUTION SAYS AND HOW

WE MISS ANTONIN SCALIA,

WHO WAS AN ORIGINALIST, A

CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLAR,

AND CERTAINLY WE SHOULDN'T

BE STAMPEDED INTO

APPOINTING SOMEBODY WHO IS

NOT ONE AND PUTTING HIM ON

THE COURT TO MAKE A 5-4

LIBERAL MAJORITY.

THAT WOULD BE A TRAGEDY.

JOHN?

John: PAT, THE

CALENDAR MAY SAY SPRING,

BUT WINTER WEATHER HAS

BEEN HITTING THE NORTHEAST

PRETTY HARD.

EMERGENCY CREWS RESPONDED

TO MULTIPLE CRASHES IN

UPSTATE REPORT.

WINTER ADVISORIES ISSUED

FROM BUFFALO TO ALBANY.

AND UP TO EIGHT INCHES FOR

BOSTON AND OTHER PARTS OF

MASSACHUSETTS AND RHODE

ISLAND.

IN SOME PLACES, THE

TEMPERATURES COULD FALL SO

LOW THEY'LL BREAK RECORDS

THAT ARE MORE THAN A

CENTURY OLD.

PAT?

Pat: I CAME TO WORK,

AND I'M NOT SURE I'M

BREAKING ANY RECORD, BUT

IT SURE WAS COLD OUTSIDE

FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.

ALTHOUGH, I REMEMBER BEING

IN NEW YORK, I THINK ON

THE 15th OF APRIL, WHEN

I LIVED IN NEW YORK, AND

WE HAD A HUGE SNOWSTORM.

I MEAN, IT WAS JUST A

MUSHY, STICKY SNOWSTORM

THAT JUST CLOGGED UP

EVERYTHING.

SO SNOW IN APRIL IS NOT

UNHEARD OF, BUT, MAN, IT'S

COLD OUT THERE.

JOHN?

John: PAT, IT IS

ALREADY BEING CALLED ONE

OF THE GREATEST NCAA

BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS

EVER.

THEY FOUGHT RIGHT DOWN TO

THE LAST SECOND AS

VILLANOVA HIT A

THREE-POINTER TO WIN THE

TITLE.

SEAN BROWN BRINGS US THE

STORY FROM HOUSTON.

Reporter: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO BACK TO N.R.G.

STADIUM IN HOUSTON FOR

CBN'S COVERAGE OF THE 2016

MEN'S FINAL FOUR, WHERE

VILLANOVA OUTBEAT SOUTH

CAROLINA FOR THE SECOND

CHAMPIONSHIP.

AND WHAT A SHOOTOUT IT

WAS, AND I MEAN BANG,

BANG.

FIRST, LET'S SEE HOW THE

WILDCATS MADE HISTORY.

THE GAME STARTED TO HEAT

UP EARLY ON BOTH ENDS OF

THE COURT.

HERE IS VILLANOVA'S JOSH

HART FOR THREE.

AND THEN THIS DUNK BY

NORTH CAROLINA'S BRYCE

JOHNSON.

WITH 8:47 LEFT IN THE

HALF, MARCUS PAIGE DRAINS

THIS THREE.

FOLLOWED BY JOEL BERRY

WITH ANOTHER.

THE SECOND HALF, AND HERE

IS WHERE THINGS REALLY

HEAT UP, THE TAR HILLS

START OFF STRONG WITH THIS

DUNK, BUT NOVA ANSWERS

WITH THIS DUNK BY MICHAEL

BRIDGES.

THE WILDCATS BEGIN TO TURN

UP THE HEAT WITH 9:53

LEFT.

RYAN DRIVES FOR TWO AND

THEN DOES IT AGAIN SHORTLY

AFTER.

NOVA UP BY 7.

LATER IN THE HALF, IT IS

MARCOS PAIGE WITH THREE.

BUT THOSE TWO AREN'T DONE

YET.

WITH A MINUTE-33 LEFT IN

THE GAME, IT IS PAIGE

AGAIN FOR THREE, BUT THE

WILDCATS KEEP COMING.

HERE IS JOSH HART FOR TWO

FROM THE LINE.

74-71, WILDCATS.

BUT WITH FIVE SECONDS

LEFT, HERE COMES MARCOS

PAIGE WITH A CONTESTED

THREE.

IT'S GOOD!

LOOKS LIKE OVERTIME.

BUT WAIT, WHAT IS THIS?

FOR THE WIN, IT'S GOOD!

AND THE VILLANOVA WILDCATS

ARE CHAMPIONS.

RYAN WAS NAMED THE FINAL

FOUR M.V.P., BUT IT WAS

CHRIKRIS JENKINS WHO WAS THE

HERO.

FROM ONE WHO WAS

UNSELFISH AND GAVE UP THE

BALL, AND I'M HAPPY IT

TURNED OUT THAT WAY.

WE BATTLED OUT THERE.

AND ALL OF THE PREPARATION

WE DID, HOW FOCUSED WE

WERE.

WE DIDN'T COME OUT TOO

STRONG IN THE FIRST HALF,

BUT THE OUGH ATTITUDE IS WE

CAME OUT STRONG IN THE

SECOND HALF.

WE ALL TRUST EACH OTHER

IN SO MANY WAYS.

I THINK IT STARTS WITH THE

CHEMISTRY OFF THE COURT.

WE TRUST EACH OTHER ALL OF

THE TIME.

OUR TEAM DEFENSE STARTS TO

TRUST ITSELF.

FOR US TO CAPITALIZE LIKE

THAT, IT IS NOTHING.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

I'M CURRENTLY SPEECHLESS

FROM WHAT IT REALLY FEELS

LIKE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT

JUST HASN'T EVEN REALLY

SETTLED IN, HOW AMAZING

THAT WAS.

AND HOW GREAT IT WAS TO DO

IT WITH ALL OF MY

BROTHERS.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT

SOMEBODY COULD NEVER TAKE

AWAY FROM ME.

John: PAT, WHAT A

GREAT GAME, AND

CONGRATULATIONS TO NOVA

FOR THAT BUZZER-BEATING

WIN.

Pat: I BET THE PRO

SCOUTS ARE SALIVATING WHEN

THEY SEE SOME OF THE SKILL

OF THOSE PLAYERS.

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE

READY FOR THE PROS, THE

ONES THAT WANT TO GO UP.

THEY'RE FABULOUS PLAYERS.

WHAT AN EXCITING THING, TO

HAVE THE WHOLE NATION

WATCHING, AND A TOURNAMENT

OF THIS MAGNITUDE, AND

MARCH MADNESS, AND THE

FINAL FOUR.

AMAZING.

I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT NORTH

CAROLINA, WITH ITS

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY,

WOULD HAVE WON THAT THING,

BUT VILLANOVA SAYS NO WAY.

CONGRATULATIONS.

THEY'RE BOTH CHAMPIONS AND

THEY'RE SHOWING IT.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, DO

YOU KNOW WHAT A FOOD'S

"BLISS POINT" IS OR WHAT

IS MEANT BY THE ULTIMATE

"MOUTHFEEL."

WE'LL HAVE SOME DEADLY

SECRETS AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WHEN YOU

TALK ABOUT METAL,

HOUR HEALTH REPORTER, LORI

JOHNSON, MET AN

INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST

WHO WENT UNDERCOVER TO

LEARN THE SECRETS OF THE

PROCESSED FOOD INDUSTRY,

AND HOW THEY WORK TO KEEP

US HOOKED.

Lori: PROCESSED

FOODS, WE KNOW WE SHOULD

STAY AWAY FROM THEM AND

THOSE SUGARY DRINKS, TOO,

BUT THEY'RE JUST SO HARD

TO RESIST.

THE FOOD THAT WE HATE

TO LOVE AND THAT WE'RE SO

TEMPTED AND WILL OVEREAT

IS A PROBLEM.

AND THE SOLUTION IS

GAINING CONTROL OVER THAT

FOOD.

Lori: MICHAEL MOSS IS

A PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING

INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST

FOR THE "NEW YORK TIMES".

HE INFILTRATED AMERICA'S

LARGEST PROCESSED FOOD

COMPANIES.

IN THE BOOK "SALT, SUGAR,

FAT," HE EXPOSES HOW THEY

ADDICTED US.

THEY GOT PAID BY MAKING

PRODUCTS THAT ARE UTTERLY

IRRESISTABLE TO PEOPLE,

BOTH IN TASTE AND ALSO

ULTRA CONVENIENT, THAT

WILL SIT ON THE SHELF AND

BE WAITING FOR YOU WHEN

YOU'RE READY TO EAT THEM.

AND AT A LOW COST.

Lori: MAYBE LOW-COST

AT THE CHECK U CHECK OUTLINE, BUT

WE PAY LATER.

DOCTORS TRACE OUR OBESITY

EPIDEMIC BACK TO PROCESSED

FOODS, AND SO DO THE

PEOPLE MAKING THOSE

PRODUCTS.

STARTING WITH THINGS

THAT THE FOOD INDUSTRY HAS

KNOWN FOR YEARS AND YEARS,

THAT IT IS AT LEAST PARTLY

RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT.

Lori: PROCESSED FOODS

KILL WITH STAGGERING

AMOUNTS OF SALT, SUGAR,

USUALLY HIG HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN

SYRUP, AND UNHEALTHY FATS.

I DON'T VIEW THE FOOD

INDUSTRY HAS THEM

INTENTIONALLY MAKING US

OBESE, BUT THEY WANT TO DO

WHAT COMPANIES DO, WHICH

IS TO MAKE AS MUCH MONEY

AS POSSIBLE BY SELLING AS

MUCH PRODUCT AS POSSIBLE.

Lori: INSIDE THESE

LABS OF THE PROCESSED FOOD

COMPANIES, SCIENTISTS USE

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY,

FORMULATING WHAT IS KNOWN

AS A FOOD'S "BLISS POINT,"

OR ITS MAXIMUM FLAVOR AND

ALLURE.

THAT USUALLY MEANS ONE

THING: SUGAR.

PREPARED PASTA SAUCES

ON THE SHELF IN THE

GROCERY STORE ARE REALLY

SWEET.

THEY WILL HAVE THE

EQUIVALENT OF SUGAR OF TWO

OREO COOKIES OR MORE OF

SUGAR PER A TINY LITTLE

HALF CUP SERVING.

I STARTED MAKING MY OWN

PASTA SAUCE AND IT IS NOT

THAT HARD.

Lori: THEY ALSO LURE

US WITH TECTURE.

BY MANIPULATING A FOOD'S

CHEMICAL STRUCTURE, THEY

RECEIVE ULTIMATE WHAT THEY

CALL "MOUTHFEEL."

AND THEY INVENTED WAYS TO

DISGUISE THE SENSATION OF

BEING FULL.

THOSE CHIPS WILL COMPEL

YOU TO EAT, MORE AND MORE

BEYOND WHAT YOU SHOULD,

AND YOU'LL GO BACK FOR

MORE BAGS AND MORE BAGS.

Lori: PROCESSED

FOOD-MAKERS KNOW WE

CONSUMERS CARE ABOUT

NUTRITION, SO THEY DEVISED

MARKETING SCHEMES TO MAKE

THEIR PRODUCTS APPEAL

HEALTHY.

THEY'LL DIAL BACK ON ONE

BAD INGREDIENT WHILE

SECRETLY PUMPING UP

OTHERS.

YOU CAN FIND A YOGURT

THAT SELLS ITSELF AT BEING

LOW-FAT, BUT IT CAN AND

OFTEN HAS AS MUCH SUGAR IN

IT AND CALORIES AS A

SERVING AS ICE CREAM.

Lori: LABELS TAUT

HEALTHY INGREDIENTS LIKE

CALCIUM, OLIVE OIL, OR

FRUIT, BUT THE AMOUNT IS

MINISCULE.

A CLOSE LOOK STILL SHOWS

SHOCKING LEVELS OF SALT,

SUGAR, AND FAT.

THE GOOD NEWS IS WE CAN

RESIST THE TEMPTATION TO

BUY PROCESSED FOODS BY

COMING TO THE STORE FULL,

HYDRATED, AND ARMED WITH A

GOOD SHOPPING LIST.

AND DON'T BUY ANYTHING,

UNLESS IT IS ON THE LIST.

SPEND MORE TIME ON THE

PERIMETER OF THE STORE,

WHERE YOU'LL FIND THE

FRESH FOODS.

WHEN YOU ARE IN THE CENTER

PART OF THE STORE, BE

WEARY OF THE PRODUCTS AT

EYE LEVEL.

GROAFERGROSGROCERYS PUT THOSE THERE

BECAUSE THEY SELL THE

MOST.

THE EXTRA EFFORT TO EAT

FRESH FOOD WILL LIKELY PAY

OFF IN THE LONG RUN.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, LORI.

YOU DO A TERRIFIC JOB.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, READ

THE LABELS.

MAYBE IT IS SMALL PRINT

AND YOU NEED TO TAKE YOUR

GLASSES OUT.

BUT DON'T JUST PICK UP

SOMETHING BECAUSE YOU HAVE

SEEN IT ADVERTISED ON

TELEVISION.

LOOK AT WHAT THE LABEL

SAYS.

THERE ARE FOODS THAT DON'T

HAVE THAT MUCH SUGAR ON

THEM.

IT IS ON THE LABEL, THE

SUGAR CONTENT.

HOW MANY GRAMS OF SUGAR

PER SERVING.

IT IS ALL THERE.

THE SHOCKING THING IS

JUICE.

YOU WOULD THINK THAT --

Terry: IT'S GOT TO BE

THE RIGHT KIND OF JUICE.

Pat: WHITE GRAPE

JUICE, WHICH IS DELICIOUS,

IS ABSOLUTELY LOADED WITH

SUGAR, LIKE 36 GRAMS A

GLASS.

Terry: THE OTHER KEY

IS, IF YOU KNOW WHAT'S

GOOD AND YOU WRITE A LIST

AND YOU STICK TO THE LIST,

AND DON'T HAVE IT IN YOUR

HOUSE.

IF IT IS IN YOUR HOUSE,

YOU'LL EAT IT.

Pat: YOU NEED TO GET

CERTAIN THINGS, I MEAN,

OATMEAL, OAT BRAN --

Terry: SOUNDS TASTY,

DOESN'T IT?

Pat: OATMEAL IS

DELICIOUS IF YOU FIX IT

RIGHT.

Terry: MIX IT WITH

BLACK BEANS, LIKE HE DOES.

> UP NEXT, A WOMAN USES

HEALTHY FOOD TO FIGHT HER

BREAST CANCER, AND NOT

EVERYONE IS THRILLED.

I'VE HAD PEOPLE

ACTUALLY YELL AT ME AND

TELL ME I WAS CRAZY.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

AND I SAID, I KNOW I'M

DOING THE RIGHT THING.

Terry: SEE HOW SHE

WAS CURED.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS.

THAT'S ALL COMING.

STAY WITH US.

Terry: BEFORE THE

BREAK, WE SAW HOW DEADLY

PROCESSED FOODS ARE, AND

NOW WE'RE ABOUT TO SEE HOW

HEALING HEALTHY FOODS CAN

BE.

EVERY YEAR MORE THAN

200,000 AMERICAN WOMEN ARE

DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST

CANCER.

IN 2009, VINIS DEMARCO WAS

ONE OF THEM.

AND WHILE MANY WOMEN IN

HER SITUATION TURN TO

SURGERY OR CHEMOTHERAPY,

SHE DID NOT.

HERE IS WHAT SHE DID

INSTEAD.

I NOTICED THIS LUMP IN

MY BREAST, AND IT WAS VERY

BIG.

I JUST IGNORED IT FOR A

WHILE.

BUT THEN IT WAS VERY

PAINFUL.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS

WRONG.

Reporter: WHEN VENUS

DEMARCO FINALLY HAD THE

COURAGE TO GO TO THE

DOCTOR, SHE WASN'T

SURPRISED WHEN DOCTORS

DETECTED BREAST CANCER.

YOU'RE ANGRY AT YOUR

BODY.

YOU'RE ANGRY AT GOD.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED.

Reporter: OVERWHELMED

AND FRIGHTENED, VENUS

PRAYED.

AND THE FEAR WOULD GRIP

YOU.

SOMETIMES I WOULD JUST

START CRYING, LIKE, WHAT

IS HAPPENING?

YOU KNOW?

I WAS SO SCARED, BUT I HAD

TO GET OVER THE FEAR

BECAUSE I WANTED TO LIVE.

Reporter: DOCTORS

ADVISED HER TO HAVE

SURGERY AND START CHEMO.

BUT VENUS DECLINED.

INSTEAD SHE RELIED ON

GOD'S HEALING POWER.

I KNEW RIGHT AWAY I WAS

NOT GOING TO HAVE A DOUBLE

MASTECTOMY.

I KNEW I WASN'T GOING TO

HAVE CHEMO.

I KNEW RIGHT AWAY.

IT WAS JUST PUT ON MY

HEART.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

A REGIMEN OF HEALTHY

EATING AND EXERCISE.

PUT FAMILY HAD MIXED

REACTIONS.

THEY WANTED TO SEE

SOMEBODY NOT GET SICK

BEFORE THEY GOT BETTER.

THEN THERE WERE THE PEOPLE

WHO WERE AFRAID.

I'VE HAD PEOPLE ACTUALLY

YELL AT ME -- REALLY YELL

AT ME ON THE PHONE -- AND

TELL ME I WAS CRAZY.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

AND I SAID, I KNOW I'M

DOING THE RIGHT THING.

I KNOW.

WITH ALL OF MY HEART, I

KNOW.

Reporter: VENUS

PRAYED FOR HEALING,

SOMETIMES FOR HOURS AT A

TIME.

I STOOD ON THE WORD.

I TOOK THE BIBLE LITERALLY

THAT SAID, "BY HIS STRIPES

YOU WERE HEALED."

AND I KEPT SAYING, IF HE

SAID THAT AND WE BELIEVE

THIS BOOK, THEN IT HAS TO

BE TRUE.

Reporter: AFTER TWO

YEARS, VENUS RECEIVED SOME

GREAT NEWS.

I GOT A BLOOD TEST, AND

THERE WAS NO CANCER IN MY

BODY.

I JUST WANTED TO PRAISE

GOD.

THAT'S ALL I WANTED TO DO.

JUST PRAISE GOD.

IT'S, LIKE, WOW, THANK YOU

GOD.

WHEN YOU WENT TO CALGARY,

WHEN YOU SHED YOUR BLOOD,

IT WAS FOR ME.

AND I BELIEVED IT.

AND HE WAS SHOWING ME

EVERY MINUTE, EVERY DAY,

AND I WAS SO HAPPY I COULD

TELL PEOPLE, I'M OKAY.

Reporter: VENUS HAS A

SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR ANYONE

BATTLING CANCER.

WHEN DISEASE COMES ON

TO YOUR BODY, REMEMBER

THAT JESUS IS THE HEALER.

EVERYTHING ELSE CAN BE A

BONUS, BUT JESUS THE

HEALER.

Terry: WHAT AN

AMAZING STORY.

WHAT A WONDERFUL REPORT.

CAN YOU IMAGINE?

WE'VE GOT OTHER ANSWER TO

PRAYER.

BEFORE WE PRAY FOR YOU

TODAY, WE WANT TO BUILD

YOUR FAITH BY SHARING WITH

YOU CATHY'S STORY.

SHE IS FROM MICHIGAN.

SHE HAS BEEN SUFFERING

WITH DEPRESSION SINCE LAST

FALL.

SHE IS A RECENT WIDOW, AND

SHE NO LONGER HAD THE

MONEY TO PAY HER BILLS,

FACED THE POSSIBILITY OF

LOSING HER HOME.

SHE BEGAN TO SOB AND CRY

DAILY.

LAST MONTH CATHY WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM,

AND, PAT, THIS IS WHAT YOU

SAID: "THERE IS A WOMAN

WATCHING, DON'T KNOW IF IT

IS CATHY OR SOMEBODY, AND

YOU'RE LITERALLY SOBBING

RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE SO SAD.

YOU DON'T FEEL AS IF THERE

IS ANY HOPE, AND THERE IS

HOPE.

GOD IS SAYING, I'M GOING

TO BLESS YOU.

RECEIVE THAT BLESSING AND

BEGIN TO PRAISE HIM.

THAT HEAVINESS, THAT

SADNESS, IS GOING TO LEAVE

YOU IN JESUS' NAME."

THE VERY NEXT DAY A CHURCH

MEMBER TOLD CATHY THAT THE

LORD LOVES YOU AND GAVE

HER THE EXACT AMOUNT OF

MONEY THAT CATHY NEEDED TO

PAY HER RENT.

SHE IS REJOICING AND

GIVING GOD THE GLORY.

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

CATHY, BUT GOD THOSE

CATHY.

AND GOD KNOWS YOU.

HERE IS WASN'T, HATTIE,

WHO LIVES IN DETROIT,

MICHIGAN.

SHE HAD PAIN IN HER UPPER

HIP FOR ALMOST A YEAR.

LAST MONTH SHE WAS

WATCHING, AND, TERRY, YOU

HAD A WORD, YOU'RE HAVING

STRONG PAIN IN YOUR HIP,

THAT HAMPERS YOUR ABILITY

TO MOVE.

HATTIE WONDERED IF THAT

WORD WAS FOR HER.

LATER IN THE DAY, SHE

REALIZED SHE WAS NO LONGER

LIMPING AND SHE WAS

HEALED.

LISTEN, FOLKS, I'M

LEARNING MORE AND MORE

ABOUT GOD, AND HE IS SO

GREAT.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HE

IS SO GREAT.

HE CREATED THE WORLD.

HIS NAME MEANS HE WHO

CAUSES EVERYTHING TO BE.

HE IS THE ONE WHO CREATED

EVERYTHING.

AND NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE

FOR HIM.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

PRAY TOGETHER.

AND WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD FOR YOU.

AND NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

I WANT YOU TO BELIEVE GOD

WITH US.

IF YOU WANT TO BOW IN

PRAYER OR KNEEL IN PRAYER

OR RAISE YOUR HANDS TO THE

LORD -- DO WHATEVER MAKES

YOU HAPPY.

BUT RIGHT NOW WE'RE GOING

TO PRAY.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST.

AND WE PRAY FOR THOSE IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO ARE

SUFFERING.

THERE IS A BOWEL

OBSTRUCTION, AND THAT

THING JUST BROKE FREE, AND

YOU ARE DELIVERED FROM

THAT PROBLEM.

THERE IS AN OBSTRUCTION,

SOMEBODY ELSE, IN THEIR

INTESTINES, AND THE LORD

IS OPENING THAT.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

THERE IS A WEAKNESS IN

YOUR BICEP, AND GOD IS

GIVING YOU MUSCLE

STRENGTH.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

SKIN CONDITION, AND IT IS

LIKE ECZEMA, BUT IT IS NOT

ECZEMA.

AND IT IS ALL OVER YOUR

HEAD.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

YOUR SKIN IS GOING TO

ABSOLUTELY CLEAR UP.

Pat: SOMEBODY, IT IS

LIKE THERE IS A BAND ON

YOUR HEAD, LIKE SOMETHING

IS SQUEEZING YOU, AND

YOU'RE CRYING OUT IN PAIN.

THE LORD HAS JUST SET YOU

FREE IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

TOUCH!

AMEN.

Terry: AND THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A

CHRONIC SINUS CONDITION.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO NEED

SURGERY.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: RIGHT NOW, I

WANT YOU TO LIFT YOUR

FACES TOWARDS THE LORD,

AND I WANT YOU TO RAISE

YOUR HANDS TO THE LORD AND

THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS

DONE.

THANK HIM IN ADVANCE OF

HEALING.

THANK HIM FOR EVERYTHING.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

BLESS THE LORD AND ALL MY

SOUL.

BLESS HIS HOLY NAME AND

FORGET NOT HIS BENEFITS.

DON'T FORGET WHAT HE HAS

DONE FOR YOU.

HE LOVES YOU.

JUST RAISE YOUR HANDS AND

PRAISE HIM.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

BASKETBALL STAR RECALLS

THE BIGGEST GAME OF HER

LIFE.

I BROKE A RECORD THAT

NO MALE NOR FEMALE HAS

BROKEN YET.

BUT THE CRAZY PART OF THE

GAME WAS THAT IT WASN'T

ME.

IT MUST HAVE BEEN ANGELS

OR SOMEONE OR SOMETHING

AROUND ME.

IT WAS, LIKE, OH, MY GOSH,

THIS IS AN ANSWERED

PRAYER.

Terry: CANDACE

WIGGINS TALKS ABOUT HER

> SYRIAN TROOPS RECENTLY

RECAPTURED QURATAIN FROM

ISIS, THE TOWN WHERE

ISLAMIC MILITANTS

REPEATING ABDUCTED AND

TERRORIZED THE CHRISTIAN

THE TOWN WAS HOME TO

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS,

MUSLIMS, AND REFUGEES FROM

OTHER CITIES.

ISLAMIC MILITANTS HAD

TAKEN DOZENS OF CHRISTIANS

FROM THE CITY, AND OTHERS

WERE FORCED TO PAY A HEAVY

TAX FOR BEING NON-MUSLIMS.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THISCH

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND WE'RE SO GLAD

YOU'RE WITH US.

LAST MONTH ONE OF THE

WNBA'S STAR PLAYERS

ANNOUNCED HER RETIREMENT

AFTER EIGHT YEARS IN THE

LEAGUE.

CANDACE WIGGINS HAS HAD A

STORIED BASKETBALL CAREER,

MUCH LIKE HER FATHER, ALAN

WIGGINS.

CANDACE GREW UP IN HIS

SHADOW, AND SHOULDERED A

BURDEN THAT BEGAN WHEN SHE

WAS FOUR YEARS OLD.

Reporter: CANDACE

WIGGINS ALWAYS HAD THE RAW

TALENT AND DRIVE TO BE ONE

OF THE BEST.

A POINT GUARD AND A

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

NATIVE, SHE ACHIEVED HER

DREAM OF PLAYING IN THE

WNBA AFTER A

RECORD-BREAKING REAR AT

STANFORD UNIVERSITY.

GROWING UP, SHE WAS OFTEN

COMPARED TO HER FATHER,

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

PLAYER ALAN WIGGINS.

SHE WAS FOUR WHEN HE DIED

FROM AIDS AFTER A LONG

STRUGGLE WITH DEPRESSION

AND DRUG ABUSE.

I LOOKED LIKE HIM.

THAT BECAME KIND OF MY

BLUEPRINT OF HOW I WAS

GOING TO SUCCEED BECAUSE

MY FAMILY, I GAVE THEM SO

MUCH COMFORT.

Reporter: IN THE WAKE

OF HIS DEATH, CANDACE FELT

THAT HER FAMILY'S

WELL-BEING DEPENDED ON HER

ABILITY TO CARRY ON HIS

LEGACY OF SUCCESS.

IT WAS DEFINITELY THE

DRIVING FORCE FOR ME.

AND I KNEW THAT THERE WAS

A WAY THAT I COULD CREATE

JOY IN A SITUATION WHERE

THERE WAS SO MUCH PAIN.

Reporter: IN HIGH

SCHOOL, CANDACE CARRIED

HER TEAM TO TWO STATE

TITLES, EARNING HER A FULL

RIDE TO STANFORD.

EVEN THEN, SHE FELT HER

TEAM'S SUCCESS DEPENDED ON

HOW WELL SHE PERFORMED.

ONE THING I CARRIED

VERY HEAVY ON STANFORD IS

THIS IDEA OF PUTTING THE

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL PROGRAM

ON MY BACK.

TO THE POINT WHERE ON MY

SENIOR YEAR, MY COACH

SAID, YOU CARRY THIS.

WE'RE PUTTING PRESSURE ON

YOU BECAUSE WE'RE GOING

WITH YOU.

Reporter: CANDACE HAD

BECOME SO FOCUSED ON DOING

WELL IN BASKETBALL THAT

HER CHILDHOOD COMMITMENT

TO JESUS CHRIST LOST ITS

PLACE.

I NEVER COMMUNICATED

WITH HIM.

I HAD A BIBLE IN MY DORM,

BUT I WAS INTIMIDATED BY

IT.

I DIDN'T DIVE IN.

I DIDN'T PRAY.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

SHE WAS MAKING A NAME FOR

HERSELF, CANDACE WAS STILL

UNDER THE SHADOW OF HER

FATHER'S DARK LEGACY.

BUT NOW THAT I WAS

GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER

IN COLLEGE, THIS MONSTER

THAT WAS FOLLOWING ME WAS

CREEPING UP.

Reporter: THAT

MONSTER CONFRONTED HER IN

MARCH 2008.

HOURS BEFORE HER TEAM WAS

TO GO UP AGAINST MARYLAND

IN THE NCAA QUARTER

FINALS, SHE WENT ONLINE TO

READ AN ARTICLE THAT WAS

WRITTEN ABOUT HER.

I WAS THINKING, I'LL

READ THIS WONDERFUL

WRITE-UP O ON ME, AND HERE

THERE WAS NOTHING ON ME.

IT WAS ALL ON MY DAD.

Reporter: IT DAWNED

ON CANDACE THAT PEOPLE

CARED MORE ABOUT HOW WELL

SHE PERFORMED THAN THEY

DID ABOUT HER.

IT HIT ME LIKE A

KNOCK-OUT PUNCH.

IT FELT LIKE NO ONE CARED

FOR MY SOUL.

I FELT LIKE I HAD BEEN

BORN INTO TERRIBLE

CIRCUMSTANCES, AND I KIND

OF STARTED QUESTIONING,

THIS IS THE BIGGEST GAME

IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

OUR FAMILY LEGACY IS ON

THE LINE.

MY LEGACY IS ON THE LINE.

MY W.B.A. DREAMS ARE ON

THE LINE, AND EVERYTHING

IS ON THE LINE, AND I

COULDN'T GO TO MY COACH.

I COULDN'T GO TO MY

FRIENDS.

I KNEW THEY DIDN'T HAVE

THE ANSWERS.

I KNEW THERE WAS ONLY ONE

SOURCE, AND I THOUGHT, I'M

GOING TO GO STRAIGHT TO

THE SOURCE.

Reporter: CANDACE SHE

KNEW THE ONLY ONE SHE

COULD TURN TO WAS GOD.

I WAS PLEADING WITH

GOD, IF NOTHING ELSE, JUST

ERASE ALL OF THIS PAIN.

IT IS ME AND YOU NOW.

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I

ACTUALLY RELIED ON THAT IN

MY PRAYER.

IT WAS LIKE THIS QUIETNESS

AND CALM AND PEACE.

I WAS, LIKE, OKAY,

SOMETHING IS DIFFERENT

NOW.

Reporter: CANDACE

SCORED A CAREER-HIGH 41

POINTS THAT NIGHT, LEADING

HER TEAM TO VICTORY AND A

SPOT IN THE FINAL FOUR.

I BROKE A RECORD THAT

NO MALE NOR FEMALE HAS

BROKEN YET.

BUT THE CRAZY PART ABOUT

THE GAME WAS THAT IT

WASN'T ME.

LIKE, IT MUST HAVE BEEN

ANGELS OR SOMEONE OR

SOMETHING AROUND ME

BECAUSE EVERY SHOT I WOULD

TAKE, I WOULD SAY, WHY

WOULD YOU SHOOT THAT.

THAT'S TERRIBLE.

AND I WOULD JUST THROW IT

UP AND IT WOULD GO IN.

AND I WAS JUST LIKE, OH,

MY GOSH, THIS IS AN

ANSWERED PRAYER.

Reporter: THE TEAM

LOST THEIR FINAL FOUR

MATCHUP, ENDING CANDACE'S

COLLEGE CAREER.

BUT NOW CANDACE DIDN'T

BASE HER IDENTITY ON WINS

OR LOSSES OR EVEN HER

FATHER.

IT CAME FROM HER

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

IT WAS GOD ANSWERING MY

PRAYER AT THAT TIME.

HIM UNDERSTANDING EXACTLY

WHAT I NEEDED -- I NEEDED

HIM TO HEAR ME AND FOR HIM

TO TALK TO ME THROUGH THE

GAME, TO FINALLY BE

CANDACE WIGGINS, NOT AL

WIGGINS' DAUGHTER.

Reporter: RECENTLY,

AFTER EIGHT YEARS IN

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL,

CANDACE ANNOUNCED HER

RETIREMENT.

SHE HAS GROWN IN HER FAITH

AND HAS LEARNED ABOUT HER

IDENTITY IN JESUS CHRIST.

BUT THERE IS ONE LESSON

SHE WILL ALWAYS TAKE WITH

HER.

FOR ME, JESUS WAS A

PATH TO FOLLOW, A LEADER.

HE GAVE ME AN OUTLET, A

WAY WHERE I DIDN'T HAVE TO

BE PERFECT.

MY LIFE DIDN'T HAVE TO BE

PERFECT.

HE GAVE ME A WAY OUT OF

ALL OF THE GUILT THAT I

HAD HELD ON TO.

ALL OF THE

PEOPLE-PLEASING -- I

FINALLY COULD JUST EXHALE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, YOU

WANT TO BE FREE?

ABRAHAM LINCOLN DIDN'T

FREE THE SLAVES.

OTHERS HAVE NOT FREED OF

SLAVES.

JESUS CHRIST FREED US ALL.

TO BE WHAT GOD WANTED US

TO BE, AND TO BE FREE.

AND THE GREATEST FREEDOM

IS TO COME BEFORE A GOD

WHO MADE YOU, AND HE KNOWS

EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU.

HE KNOWS EVERY SIN YOU'VE

COMMITTED.

HE KNOWS EVERYTHING YOU

HAVE DONE SINCE THE MOMENT

YOU WERE BORN.

HE KNOWS ALL OF THE SINS

YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER

HAVE COMMITTED BEFORE YOU

WERE BORN, AND ON UP THE

LINE.

HE KNOWS IT ALL.

AND YET HE SAYS, I LOVE

YOU.

AND THIS GOD IS THE GOD

WHO CREATED EVERYTHING.

AND HE ASKED US TO COME TO

HIM.

AND HE'LL TAKE CARE OF

EVERYTHING.

AND CANDACE'S LIFE -- SHE

COMES INTO THIS ZONE WHERE

GOD TOOK OVER.

AND SHE DOES ATHLETIC

FEATS SHE DIDN'T BELIEVE

WAS POSSIBLE.

WELL, GOD CAN TAKE YOUR

LIFE AND CAUSE YOU TO HAVE

WISDOM YOU DIDN'T BELIEVE

POSSIBLE, GIVE YOU

UTTERANCE YOU DIDN'T

BELIEVE POSSIBLE.

GIVE YOU PHYSICAL STRENGTH

YOU DIDN'T BELIEVE

POSSIBLE, BECAUSE HE IS

GOD.

AND WHAT HE SAYS TO YOU

RIGHT NOW, COME UNTO ME

ALL YEE WHO LABOR AND WHO

ARE HEAVY LADEN, AND I'LL

GIVE YOU REST.

I WANT TO TAKE CARE OF

YOU.

JUST COME TO ME.

IF YOU'RE FIGHTING IT,

DON'T FIGHT GOD.

HE LOVES YOU.

WHY WOULD YOU REBEL

AGAINST SOMEBODY WHO LOVES

YOU AND CARES ABOUT YOU

AND LOOKS AFTER YOU, AND

WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRE

OF YOUR HEART.

THAT'S WHAT'S SO

WONDERFUL.

HE WILL GIVE US THE DESIRE

OF OUR HEART.

I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, FOR EACH ONE IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO IS

STRUGGLING, WHO IS

SUFFERING, I PRAY THAT YOU

WILL GRANT THEM THE PEACE

OF GOD, THAT THEY MIGHT

COME TO YOU AS A LOVING

FATHER, AND THAT THEY

MIGHT UNDERSTAND YOUR LOVE

AND GRACE.

WE COMMIT THEM TO YOU IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

NOW, LORD, SPEAK TO EACH

ONE OF US WITH YOUR

BLESSING.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WELL, TERRY, WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, WE'VE GOT YOUR

E-MAIL.

DEE ASKS: "IF A RELATIVE

IS RUDE AND DEMANDING AT

HOLIDAY GATHERINGS, IS IT

UNFORGIVING NOT TO INCLUDE

THAT RELATIVE AT FUTURE

HOLIDAY EVENTS?"

PATS GOING TO TACKLE THAT

AND MUCH MORE WHEN WE

"BRING IT ON."

Terry: LOUISE OWENS

USED TO BE KNOWN AS THE

PARTY GIRL AND HER

NEIGHBORHOOD.

SHE SPENT MOST OF HER

NIGHTS AND DAYS DRUNK.

TODAY LOUISE IS COMPLETELY

CHANGED, THANKS TO THE

KINDNESS OF STRANGERS.

Reporter: LOUISE AND

ROB OWENS LOVE WALKING IN

THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD OR JUST

FISHING AT THE PIER.

JUST GOING DOWN TO THE

BEACH N AND CATCHING A FEW

CROCKERS.

Reporter: IT IS A BIG

CHANGE FROM LOUISE, WHO'S

LIFE WAS PRETTY ROUGH A

FEW YEARS AGO.

IT IS HARD FOR ME TO

TALK ABOUT.

I WAS THE PARTY GIRL IN

THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND I WAS A VERY STRONG

ALCOHOLIC.

Reporter: AND THEN

SHE MET THE STAFF AND

VOLUNTEERS FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING" PARTNER "NEW

LIFE CHRISTIAN CENTER."

THEY DIDN'T JUDGE ME.

THEY JUST GAVE ME FOOD

WHEN I NEEDED IT, PRAYER

WHEN I NEEDED IT.

TO SEE ME ON THE STREET,

THEY WOULD ALWAYS HAVE A

HUG.

THIS COMMUNITY WOULD BE

LOST WITHOUT THEM.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY BEGAN

VOLUNTEERING AT VACATION

BIBLE SCHOOL.

SHE HAD A REAL

REVELATION OF GOD'S LOVE

FOR HER THAT WAS JUST

LIFE-CHANGING.

AND I DON'T THINK SHE HAS

HAD A DRINK EVER SINCE.

WITHOUT GOD IN MY LIFE,

I WOULDN'T BE HERE.

THE BOTTOM LINE, PURE AND

SIMPLE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

ROB WORKS HARD AS A

FACTORY CLEAN UP TECH,

THINGS HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT

FINANCIALLY.

THE FOOD THEY GET FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

"THE STORE HOUSE," HELPS

THEM GET BY.

THE FOOD WE GET FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING" AND

"THE TOWER HOUS STORE HOUSE," IS A

BLESSING.

Reporter: TODAY THEY

BOTH VOLUNTEER AT THE

"STORE HOUSE."

MY WIFE IS ALWAYS THE

FIRST ONE TO VOLUNTEER.

IT MAKES ME FEEL REELED

GOOD TO SEE HER DO IT.

THAT IS GOD 100%.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

LEWIS WENT TO "THE STORE

HOUSE" TO GET FOOD, SHE

RECEIVED MUCH MORE.

GOD TOLD ME HE LOVED

ME.

IT WAS AT THAT MOMENT HE

TOUCHED ME.

Terry: YOU KNOW, ONE

OF THE THINGS WE WANT YOU

TO KNOW IS YOU CAN CHANGE

THE WORLD.

AND YOU MAY BE ALREADY A

"700 CLUB" MEMBER.

IF YOU ARE, THEN YOU KNOW

WHAT, YOU ARE DOING THAT

ALL OVER THE PLACE.

HERE IN THE UNITED STATES

AS WELL AS AROUND THE

GLOBE.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU.

TO THOSE OF YOU WHO

HAVEN'T YET JOINED "THE

700 CLUB," IT IS 65 CENTS

A DAY, AND THAT WORKS OUT

TO $20 A MONTH.

AND YOU'LL BE JOINING WITH

THOUSANDS OF US WHO ARE

OUT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THE NAME OF, AND WITH

THE LOVE OF, JESUS CHRIST.

AS WELL AS IN IN VERY

PRACTICAL WAYS THAT MEET

PEOPLE RIGHT AT THEIR

POINT OF NEED.

WE WANT TO INVITE YOU TO

JOIN WITH US.

BECOME A "700 CLUB" MEMBER

RIGHT NOW, TODAY.

THERE IS NO BETTER TIME TO

DO IT.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I'D

LIKE TO JOIN "700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU DO, OUR WAY OF

SAYING THANK YOU FOR

CARING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE,

WE HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU.

IT'S PATS LATEST D.V.D.

CALLED "HEAVEN, WHAT GOD

HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO

LOVE HIM."

IT IS FILLED WITH ALL

KINDS OF INSPIRING,

WONDERFUL INFORMATION FROM

THE WORD OF GOD.

FROM A DOCTOR WHO HAS HAD

PATIENTS WHO HAVE

EXPERIENCED THESE DEATH

EXPERIENCES, HEAVEN, AND

THEN COME BACK TO TELL

ABOUT IT.

AND I WANT TO TELL YOU

WHAT GARSELLA HAS TO SAY.

SHE HAS ALREADY WATCHED

THE D.V.D.

AND SHE SAID THE

TESTIMONIES AND PAT'S

TEACHING ON THE HEAVEN

D.V.D. ARE SO EXCITING.

WELL-DONE.

AND THE SUBJECT MATTER

HITS A NERVE FOR JUST

ABOUT EVERYONE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IT SHOULD HIT A NERVE FOR

EVERYBODY.

Pat: EVERYBODY WANTS

TO KNOW ABOUT HEAVEN.

THEY WANT TO KNOW WHERE

THEY'RE GOING WHEN THEY

DIE.

THIS TELLS THEM.

AND PEOPLE HAVE BEEN THERE

AND SAY, THIS IS WHAT IT

LOOKS LIKE.

Terry: AND REALLY

INSPIRING STORIES ON WHAT

PEOPLE SAW AND HOW GOD

REVEALED HIMSELF.

BY THE WAY, IF YOU USE

SOMETHING WE CALL PLEDGE

EXPRESS, WHICH MEANS YOUR

BANK DOES ALL OF THE

WORK -- I USE IT AND I

LOVE IT.

NO ENVELOPES, NO STAMPS,

NO HAVING TO REMEMBER, IT

SAVES SOME ADMINISTRATIVE

COSTS ON OUR END, SO MORE

OF OUR GIFTS CAN GO INTO

THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN

NEED.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR SENDING YOU A "POWER

FOR LIFE" TEACHING EVERY

MONTH.

I THINK YOU'LL BE REALLY

BLESSED BY IT.

CALL THE TOLL-FREE NUMBER

AND SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"700 CLUB" AND I'D LIKE TO

DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

READY FOR SOME E-MAILS?

Pat: LET'S GO FOR IT.

Terry: DEE SAYS, "IF

A RELATIVE IS RUDE AND

DEMANDING AT HOLIDAY

GATHERINGS, IS IT WRONG TO

DENY ASKING THEM AT FUTURE

EVENTS?

THEY DENY THEY DID

ANYTHING WRONG.

WOULD IT BE BETTER TO JUST

TURN THE OTHER CHEEK AND

PUT UP WITH THIS

BEHAVIOR?"

Pat: WELL, YOU KNOW,

IF A GUY HAS A SKUNK AND

HE WANTS TO BRING IT TO

YOUR PARTY, YOU SAY NO.

Terry: THAT'S AN

INTERESTING ANALOGY.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: YOU DON'T HAVE

TO PUT UP WITH THAT STUFF.

YOU CAN SAY, LOOK, WHEN

YOU BEHAVE YOURSELF, WE'LL

INVITE YOU BACK.

Terry: SOMETIMES

MAKING A DECISION LIKE

THAT LET'S THEM KNOW YOU

REALLY MEAN IT.

THIS IS A VIEWER WHO SAYS:

"MY HUSBAND BELIEVES HE

DOESN'T NEED TO HAVE A

REGULAR JOB, THAT GOD WILL

PROVIDE FOR US BECAUSE HE

IS NOW A PREACHER.

HE USED TO HAVE A GOOD

BUSINESS, WHICH HE GAVE UP

TO GO INTO HIS MINISTRY.

HE WAITS FOR GOD TO OPEN

DOORS FOR HIM TO PREACH,

BUT THOSE OPPORTUNITIES

ARE NOT VERY OFTEN.

HE HASN'T BEEN TO BIBLE

SCHOOL SINCE HE SAYS THE

DISCIPLES DIDN'T, AND THAT

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ENOUGH.

I'M WORRIED WE WILL END UP

ON THE STREETS SOON, AND

HE MOCKS ME FOR MY LACK OF

FAITH, BUT I'M WORRIED HE

HAS LOST HIS WAY

SPIRITUALLY.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU

SUGGEST TO HIM AND/OR ME?

HOW LONG DO WE HAVE TO

WAIT?"

Pat: HE IS TURNING

INTO WHAT I CALL A GOSPEL

BUM.

HE IS MISLED.

HE IS CONFUSED.

HE THINKS HE IS BEING

LISTENED TO BY THE LORD

AND HE HASN'T.

HE IS IN A STATE OF

DELUSION.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

I RECOMMEND YOU GET ONE OR

MORE MATURE PASTORS, WHO

YOU HAVE CONFIDENCE IN,

WHO KNOW THE LORD, TO MEET

WITH YOUR HUSBAND.

SOMETIMES THEY'VE GOT TO

BE SHAPED UP, BUT THIS IS

UTTERLY RIDICULOUS.

HE IS GOING TO PUT YOU IN

THE POOR HOUSE.

YOU'RE GOING TO WIND UP ON

THE STREETS.

YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE YOUR

HOUSE.

YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE YOUR

LIFESTYLE.

THIS ISN'T HONORING TO GOD

AT ALL.

Terry: EVEN PAUL MADE

TENTS.

Pat: SURE HE DID.

ABSOLUTELY HE MADE TENTS.

HE WAS ACTIVE ALL OF THE

TIME.

HE SAID, NOBODY IS GOING

TO TAKE MY BOAST AWAY FROM

ME.

I HAVEN'T ASKED ANYBODY

FOR ANYTHING.

I LIVED AND I WORKED.

SO YOUR HUSBAND HAS A

SKILL.

HE IS A PROFESSIONAL

BUSINESSMAN.

HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO, AND

HE NEEDS TO DO IT.

BUT I'M JUST NOT SURE GOD

CALLED HIM TO DO ANYTHING

BUT ACCEPT WHAT HE WAS

DOING BEFORE.

HE NEEDS MATURE DISCUSSION

WITH PEOPLE WHO KNOW

BETTER.

AND MAYBE HE'LL LISTEN TO

THEM, AND MAYBE HE WON'T.

Terry: JOHN SAYS, "I

HAVE BEEN SAVED AND

BAPTIZED ACCORDING TO WHAT

IS REQUIRED.

I WAS TOLD MY NAME HAS TO

BE IN THE BOOK OF LIFE BY

MY CHURCH.

THEY TOLD ME IT IS NOT IN

THERE.

WHAT DO I DO?"

Pat: YOU'RE CHURCH IS

A CULT.

I RECOMMEND YOU OUGHT TO

GET OUT OF IT.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING IN

THE BIBLE ABOUT A CHURCH

THAT KNOWS YOUR NAME IS IN

THE BOOK OF LIFE.

YOU SAY YOU HAVE GIVEN

YOUR HEART TO JESUS AND

YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED.

GO TO A FELLOWSHIP WHERE

THEY LOVE YOU.

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A

CULT; GET OUT OF IT.

Terry: DIANA SAYS,

"IN GENESIS 12: 3, HES "I

WILL BLESS PEOPLE WHO

BLESS YOU, AND CURSE THOSE

WHO CURSE YOU."

IF WE'RE UNDER THE NEW

TESTAMENT AND GOD LOVES

EVERYONE, HOW WOULD HE

ALSO CURSE SOMEONE?

Pat: THERE IS A CURSE

ON ALL OF THE PEOPLE OF

THE EARTH RIGHT NOW.

BUT GOD'S PROMISE IS TO

ABRAHAM, AND WHAT YOU'RE

QUOTING IS A PROMISE MADE

TO ABRAHAM AND TO HIS

DESCENDESCENDENTS, THAT HAS TO

DO WITH THEEUR PEOPLE.

ITHE JEWISH PEOPLE.

IT'S OLD TESTAMENT.

I THINK THERE IS TOO MUCH

OF THIS STUFF GOING ON,

PEOPLE WHO DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT THE BIBLE

TALKS ABOUT.

GOD -- EVERYBODY, IN A

SENSE, IS UNDER A CURSE

UNTIL THEY COME TO JESUS.

Terry: I THINK IT IS

CONFUSING TO PEOPLE TO

KNOW WHEN CAN YOU APPLY

SOMETHING, OLD TESTAMENT,

TO YOUR LIFE.

Pat: THE BASIC THING,

THE OLD TESTAMENT, YOU

HAVE TO KNOW WHO IT WAS

WRITTEN TO.

THIS IS A PROMISE GOD MADE

TO ABRAHAM AND HIS

DESCENDENTS, PERIOD.

Terry: THIS ONE SAYS,

"I TEND TO FIND MYSELF

COUNTING HOW MANY TIMES I

SIN.

I KNOW GOD MADE ME

RIGHTEOUS, BUT MY MIND

ALWAYS GOES BACK TO WHAT I

SHOULD HAVE DONE.

I WANT TO LEARN FROM MY

MISTAKES AND GET CLOSER TO

JESUS.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: WHAT YOU SHOULD

DO IS KEEP YOUR EYES ON

THE LORD.

YOU'RE FOCUSED ON YOU,

WHAT YOU'VE DONE, WHAT YOU

HAVEN'T DONE -- THIS IS

EGO CENTRIC.

I DON'T CARE WHAT IT LOOKS

LIKE, IT IS A FORM OF

PRIDE.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS GET

YOUR EYES ON JESUS CHRIST,

WHAT HE HAS DONE.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE OUR

CONSCIENCE CLEAR OF DEAD

WORKS TO START SERVING

GOD.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS: "NO WEAPON FORMED

AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER

AS THE HERITANCE OF THE

LORD."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE GOT.

FROM OUR DEAR FRIEND AND

OTHERS, WE'LL SEE YOU

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
