DEADLY

EARTHQUAKES HIT ECUADOR AND

JAPAN.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW

"OPERATION

BLESSING" IS RUSHING TO AID

TO THOSE

REGIONS AS RESCUERS SEARCH

FOR

SURVIVOR.

PLUS, PRESSURING NORTH

CAROLINA

LAWMAKERS AND THE BATHROOM

BILL.

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHY THIS

GERMAN

PASTOR ISN'T BACKING DOWN.

THANKS FOR JOINING US

WITH CBN

NEWSWATCH. I'M CAITLIN BURKE.

RESCUERS ARE SCRAMBLING TO

DIG OUT

ANYONE OUT OF THE RUBBLE

AFTER THE

EARTHQUAKE IN ECUADOR AND

JAPAN. 246

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

IN ECUADOR SUNDAY,

CHRISTIANS

PRAYED FOR THOSE WHO

SUFFERED THIS

EARTHQUAKE.

A DESPERATE SEARCH FOR

SURVIVORS

CONTINUE.

TIME IS AS ISSUE.

MY LITTLE NEPHEW WAS INSIDE

AS PEOPLE

PULL BODIES FROM THE HOMES.

THE POWERFUL 7.8 QUAKE

STRUCK

SATURDAY NIGHT 100 MILES

WEST OF KITO.

THE CAPITAL.

THE DEATH TOLL IS ABOUT 270

AND

RISING, BUT THERE HAVE BEEN

SOME

MIRACLES. HERE POLICE

RESCUED A YOUNG

GIRL AN AMONG THE PILE IN

CONCRETE.

THIS WOMAN IS STUCK FROM THE

WAIST

DOWN.

ANOTHER EARTHQUAKE THAT HIT

THE

REGION IN JAPAN LATE SUNDAY

AND

THURSDAY.

PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING

DESPERATELY FOR

FOOD, WATER AND MEDICINE.

THIS MAN IS WORRIED ABOUT

NOT HAVING

MEDICINE FOR HIS DAUGHTER.

THE U.S. MILITARY IS NOW

ASSISTING

JAPANESE FORCES. IN JAPAN

WITH

GENERATORS, WATER AND FOOD,

KOBE IS

WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE

CHURCH.

PASTOR NAKAMURA, IN ECUADOR,

SETTING

UP SYSTEMS WITH KITCHENS.

THEY HELD A SPECIAL

MEETING OVER

THE WEEKEND TO DELIVER A

STRONG

MESSAGE TO THE WORLD.

THE ROWLAND HEIGHTS WILL

FOREVER

REMAIN IN ISRAEL.

THE GOVERNMENT HELD AN

OFFICIAL

MEETING THERE.

IT COMES AS THE BACKDROP

REGARDING

THE CIVIL WAR THAT HAS

FLOWED INTO

ISRAEL. FOREIGN MINISTER

RESPONDED

THAT SYRIA WILL USE FORCES.

THEY TESTIFIED TO ITS

HISTORICAL

PLACE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

DURING THE 19 YEARS THAT

THE

GOLDEN HEIGHTS WERE

UNDERMINES AND

AGGRESSION FOR WAR. IN THE

40 YEARS

FOR GOLDEN RULE THEY ARE

THERE FOR

PEACE. IN THE STORMY REGION

AROUND

US, ISRAEL IS A STABILIZING

FACTOR.

ISRAEL IS THE SOLUTION, NOT

THE

PROBLEM.

NORTH KOREA PREPARES FOR

IT'S

NUCLEAR TEST. A NEW TEST

WOULD BE IN

FURTHER DEFIANCE AND THAT IT

WILL

HOLD THE RULING.

IT HAS NOT TESTED THE

NUCLEAR DEVICE,

BUT IT'S WEAPONS PROGRAM HAS

MADE

PROGRESS OVER THE LAST

SEVERAL YEARS.

OPPONENTS OF A NEW

BATHROOM LAW IN

NORTH CAROLINA ARE TRYING TO

REPEAL

THE MEASURE. NORTH CAROLINA

HAS

DIFFERENT VIEWS ON WHAT

SHOULD HAPPEN.

AS HEATHER CELLS REPORTS,

MANY HAVE

BEEN POLARIZED ON HOW THE

DEBATE HAS

BECOME.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO GO

AWAY.

LGBT ACTIVIST AND

CELEBRITIES ARE

PRESSURING NORTH CAROLINA TO

PULL THE

PLUG ON ITS NEW BATHROOM LAW.

CONSERVATIVES ARE FIGHTING

BACK.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN CAN

TALK ABOUT

THE USA, BUT WE DON'T NEED

SPRINGSTEIN.

NORTH CAROLINA BEGAN THIS

PROCESS

AND A DOUBLE WHAMMY FOR

CHURCHES AND

SCHOOLS.

THIS ORDINANCE WOULD HAVE

MADE

CHURCHES AND SCHOOLS COMPLY

WITH

THESE THINGS AND THEREFORE

MAKE

CHURCHES DO THINGS THAT ARE

NOT ONLY

UNSAFE BUT UNETHICAL.

THE STATE LEGISLATURE SAW

THE MOVE

AS OVER REACH.

LAST MONTH IT TURNED THIS

WITH A BILL.

PEOPLE MUST USE THE FACILITY

THAT

CORRESPOND WITH THEIR SEX AT

BIRTH.

THE BILL IS SIMPLY ABOUT

PROTECTING THE SAFETY OF

WOMEN,

CHILDREN AND CITIZENS IN

NORTH

CAROLINA.

MANY IN THE COMMUNITY

SUPPORT THE

NEW LAW.

THEY BELIEVE THE ORIGINAL

ORDINANCE

COULD OPEN THE DOOR TO

PREDATORS AND

TRANSGENDER AND PEOPLE.

IT WILL ALLOW PEOPLE TO

CHOOSE THE

BATHROOM THEY WANT TO USE

BASED UPON

HOW THEY FELT AND JUST

EXPRESSING I'M

FEELING LIKE A WOMAN TODAY

WOULD

CERTAINLY GIVE A FREE PASS

TO A MAN

WHO MAY HAVE LESS THAN

POSITIVE

MOTIVES.

WE DON'T WANT ANYONE TO

LOSE JOBS,

WE DON'T WANT ANYONE TO GO

WITHOUT

SERVICE.

BUT WHAT WE FELT LIKE WAS WE

NEEDED

TO MAINTAIN THE STANDARDS

AND MORALS

OF OUR CITY.

NOT ALL LEADERS IN NORTH

CAROLINA

HAVE THE SAME VIEW OF THIS

LAW. HERE

IN CHARLOTTE, MANY PEOPLE

OPPOSE IT.

THERE IS NO CORRELATION

THAT SHOWS

AN ORDINANCE LIKE THAT

INCREASE

PREDATION OF CHILDREN. WE

NEED TO

WORK ON OUR LAWS NOT BASED

ON

OPINIONS BUT FACTS.

IN RECENT YEARS, SOME

PEOPLE HAVE

POSED AS TRANSGENDER.

HE'S A TRANSGENDER MAN

WORKING IN LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

HE SAYS THE NEW LAW WILL

BRING OTHER

ISSUES.

MY POSITION AS MALE,

POSITIONS ME

TO GO IN AS MALE INTO A

RESTROOM. BUT

NOW I HAVE A PROBLEM BECAUSE

I'M A

MALE.

HE'S WORRIED THAT IT WILL

LEAD TO

FURTHER ISOLATION.

YOU WOULD GO HOME WHERE

YOU WOULD

NORMALLY GO OUT AND MAYBE

NOT END UP

SOCIALIZING AS MUCH.

THOSE THINGS FOR

TRANSGENDER IN

PARTICULAR SUCH AS

DEPRESSION.

PASTOR DEAN WILL MODERATE

WHAT

COULD BE OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE.

THE

CHURCH WOULD DO WELL TO

REACH OUT TO

TRANSGENDER PEOPLE.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE

CHURCH

MORE COMPASSIONATE IN ITS

APPROACH

AND MORE ACCEPTING OF ALL

PEOPLE.

SO, BEYOND JUST THE

BATHROOM,

BEYOND JUST THE

NON-DISCRIMINATION,

ALL OF THOSE THINGS, HOW DO

WE LOVE

PEOPLE FOR WHERE THEY ARE

AND HELP

THEM SEE WHAT GOD WANTS THEM

TO

BECOME ?

IN THE MIDST OF A BITTER

DEBATE,

PERHAPS BOTH SIDES CAN AGREE

ON.

THE SUPREME COURT WILL

HEAR A

DISPUTE TODAY TO DETERMINE

THE FATE

OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

OVER THE

POLICY OF FOUR MILLION

IMMIGRANTS.

THE CASE FROM THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TO CHALLENGE

THE

PROGRAMS. THE SUPREME COURT

IS

EXPECTED TO DECIDE BY LATE

JUNE.

COMING UP, THE FIRST

PASTOR TO BE

DENOUNCED.

WHY ISN'T HE INTIMIDATED?

I WAS ON HEROINE.

BIBLE, AVAILABLE AT CBN.COM,

BIBLE OR

THE ITUNES APP STORE.

> HE'S STANDING UP FOR THE

GOSPEL

AND REFUSING TO BOW DOWN TO

POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS. THIS PASTOR IS

DOING

THIS IN THE LAND OF

REAFFIRMATION.

HE BRINGS US THIS STORY FROM

GERMANY.

THIS IS A PASTOR WHO

KNOWS THERE

IS A COST FOR SPEAKING OUT

BOLDLY

ESPECIALLY IN TODAY'S

GERMANY FOR

STANDING ON THE BIBLE

WITHOUT

COMPROMISE WHICH MANY VIEW

AS HATED

AND CHRISTIAN.

THIS PASTOR HAS BEEN

ATTACKED IN THE

MEDIA AND EVEN CONDEMNED BY

HIS

FELLOW PASTORS.

THE CRIME. REFUSING TO HEED

TO

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

I'M PREACHING THE GOSPEL

IN THE

CORRECT WAY.

IN HIS SERMON HE CUTS NO

CORNERS.

TO SOME HE MAY SOUND MEAN

WHEN HE

ATTACKS OTHER RELIGIONS. BUT

HE IS

STAND TO TO SEE WHAT IS A

COMPROMISE

THAT SEEMS TO HAVE SWALLOWED

THE

CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

MIXED ONE VERY CORRECTIVE

SITUATION

ON GOD AND YOU HAVE THE

PERFECT STORM.

LOGIC OVER WHO GOD IS.

THEY SAID JESUS CHRIST IS

THE SAME

GOD.

TELL THE MUSLIM YOUR GOD IS

YOUR SON.

THEY SAID NO, OUR GOD HAS A

SON.

HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST.

ARE NOT THE

SAME. IF YOU SPEAK OUT LOUD

AND

CLEARLY THE TRUTH OF THE

BIBLE THAT

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO

HEAVEN, THIS

WAY IS JESUS CHRIST. THERE

IS ONLY

ONE GOD, FATHER, SON AND THE

HOLY

SPIRIT.

THERE IS NO OTHER GOD

BESIDES HIM.

THEN YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, NOT

ONLY

TODAY IN GERMANY.

70 GERMAN PASTORS GOT

TOGETHER TO

DENOUNCE HIM.

THE PROSECUTOR INVESTIGATED

HIM FOR

HATE SPEECH, THEN CLEARED

HIM.

THE PARLIAMENT PASSED A

RESOLUTION

AGAINST HIM. REPORTEDLY A

FIRST TIME

A GERMAN PASTOR HAS BEEN

CONDEMNED BY

A GERMAN PARLIAMENT.

HE SAYS THE REAL PROBLEM IN

HIS

ESTIMATION, MOST PASTORS IN

THE

CHURCH HAVE NOT BEEN BORN

AGAIN.

MOST OF THE PASTORS IN

GERMANY ARE

NOT REBORN.

THAT'S THE GREAT PROBLEM.

THEY MAKE THEIR OWN DOCTRINE.

THE BIBLE, THE WORD OF GOD

IS OUR

LAW, CHAPTER BY CHAPTER,

BOOK BY BOOK

AND VERSE BY VERSE.

THE PASTOR WROTE THE

GREAT HYMN

PRAISE TO THE LORD ALMIGHTY.

HE ENJOYS SAYING THE PASTOR

ALSO GOT

IN TROUBLE FOR PREACHING THE

BIBLE

BOLDLY.

HE WHO COMES FROM A FAMILY

OF LONG

MILITARY TRADITION SAYS HE'S

IN A WAR

BETWEEN CHRIST AND THE DEVIL

AND

CHRIST REASSURES HIM.

THIS IS THE RIGHT WAY IN

YOUR

PREACHING WHEN YOU GET

PROBLEMS.

IF YOU PREACH THE GOSPEL OF

JESUS

CHRIST AND EVERYONE IS

CLAPPING HIS

HAND, THEN YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM BECAUSE

IF YOU ARE TELLING THE TRUTH

FROM THE

BIBLE, THE DEVIL WILL COME

AND HE

WILL FIGHT AGAINST YOU AND

GO AWAY.

HE WILL ACCEPT IT. HE WILL

FIGHT

AGAINST THE WORD OF GOD.

HE SAYS THE CONCERN IS

NOT GETTING

DISCOURAGED BUT A BIG HIT.

I HAVE OVER 10,000

E-MAILS. MANY

PERSONS CAME TO ME AND SAID

YOU ARE A

GREAT PASTOR.

THE MORE PERSONS CAME TO

TELL ME

THIS, SOMETHING INSIDE ME

AND

HAPPENED AND SAID YOU ARE A

REALLY

GREAT PASTOR.

I'M ONLY A SINNER.

I'M ONLY A TOOL FOR JESUS

CHRIST. AND

WHEN JESUS CAN USE THIS

TOOL, IF ANY

HONOR TO JESUS CHRIST, I'M

NOTHING.

THE GREAT HYMN OF THIS

CHURCH SAYS

LET THE AMEN FOUND FROM HIS

PEOPLE

AGAIN. HE BELIEVES REVIVAL

IS COMING

AND HE ASKS CHRISTIANS TO

PRAY FOR

GERMANY.

I ASK YOU BROTHERS AND

SISTERS IN

AMERICA, PLEASE PRAY FOR

GERMANY,

PRAY FOR AWAKENING, PRAY

THAT THE

WORD OF JESUS CHRIST WILL GO

OUT AND

REACH PERSONS WHO ARE LOST

THAT JESUS

CAN SAVE THEM.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

GERMANY.

UP NEXT, DEMOCRACY AND

CREATIVITY.

WHY FREEDOM OFTEN LEADS TO

BEAUTY AND

STUNNING WORKS OF ART.

EVERYBODY WANTS CHEAP AIR

THE ALL NEW MY CBN APP.

> PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

ALWAYS

SERVE AS REMINDERS OF THE

DEMOCRATIC

PROCESS THAT MAKES AMERICA

GREAT.

WHILE CAMPAIGNS CAN GET

NASTY, THERE

IS ALSO BEAUTY BEHIND IT

ALL. ONE OF

THE TED CRUZ'S VISORS

HAPPENS TO BE A

TOP NOTCH HISTORIAN. HE SAYS

DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM HAVE

LED TO ONE

OF THE GREATEST AMERICAN

ACHIEVEMENTS

OF ALL KIND.

DR. COACH, AS YOU ARE

TALKING

ABOUT DEMOCRACY, TELL US

ABOUT HOW

THAT PLAYS INTO THAT?

IT'S A PART OF THE

PARTHENON AND

IT SAYS THAT WE ARE A PART

OF

DEMOCRACY.

THAT IT IS THIS ENORMOUS

BEAUTIFUL

TEMPLE WITH A SCULPTURE.

HE WANTED IT TO BE HERE FOR

US.

THAT'S WHEN LIBERTY AND

CIVILIZATION BECOME.

IT'S WHEN THE GREEK

EXPERIMENT WAS

SO AUDACIOUS.

IT WAS SHORT BUT HAD

EXTRAORDINARY

TREATMENT IN LITERATURE AND

FINE

ARTS.

MOVING TO MICHELANGELO

AND

CIVILIZATION.

DAVID GETS THE BOOK'S

NAME BECAUSE

THE SHEPHERD DAVID WAS SO

PURE AND

WE USE THE FLAME FOR THE

METAPHOR OF

DEMOCRACY AND MICHELANGELO

AND A

TRIBUTE TO THE FLORENTINE

REPUBLIC.

WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW

IT'S THE

ORIGINAL CONTEXT. HE WAS A

WARRIOR

FOR FREEDOM.

EVEN IN THE WAY THAT HE'S

LOOKING

AND POSE ---ING.

MOVING TO AMERICA, THIS

IS BY --

IT'S LANDERS PEAK.

TIE THAT TO THE AMERICAN

DREAM.

IT'S A FASCINATING

PICTURE OF

NORMAN LANDSCAPE AND HE WAS

ONE OF

THE FIRST ARTIST TO TRAVEL

WEST WITH

THE GOAL OF SHOWING PEOPLE

WHAT THIS

LOOKED LIKE. THIS PICTURE

WAS PAINTED

RIGHT AFTER THE CIVIL WAR TO

HONOR

FREDERICK LANDER WHO HAD

BEEN HIS

GUIDE AND A GREAT CIVIL WAR

GENERAL

AND DIED IN THE WAR.

HE WANTED TO OFFER SOMETHING

THAT

WOULD BE HOPEFUL AFTER THE

WAR AND

THE NOTION THAT THE UNITED

STATES

COULD HEAL AND EXPAND WEST

IS THE

MESSAGE OF THE PAINTING.

THE MAN HE WENT OUT WITH,

THIS

GENERAL YOU WERE TALKING

ABOUT, HE

GAVE A LECTURE.

TELL US ABOUT HIS LECTURE?

LANDERS WAS AN

EXTRAORDINARY MAN.

HE WOULD FIGHT BEARS AND HE

BELIEVE

THAT AMERICA COULD ARRIVE TO

EUROPE

AND HE WAS KNOWN FOR

BRINGING HIS

BUDGET ON TIME. HE WOULD

WANT THIS

BEAUTY TO COME EAST SO HE

WOULD KNOW

WHAT ARTIST WERE.

LET'S GO TO PABLO

PICASSO. IF THE

OTHERS WERE ABOUT GREAT

THINGS ABOUT

DEMOCRACY, THIS IS MORE OF

THE

ANTI-DEMOCRACY PAINTING,

RIGHT ?

IT TURNED INTO THE

CONFLICT.

FASCISM AND A THREAT.

THE FASCIST WANTED TO

EXTINGUISH THE

MOTIVE AND HE REPEATS THAT

SHAPE IN

SOME OF THE FORMS OF

SCULPTURES

BECAUSE I THINK HE WANTED TO

CALL OUT

FOR HELP AGAINST THIS THREAT

AND SHOW

US WHAT WE WERE IN DANGER OF

LOSING.

AMEN. THANKS SO MUCH, DR.
