COMING UP, A BROKEN

NECK.

SHE'LL BE PARALYZED

FROM THE CHEST DOWN AND

WILL NEVER WALK AGAIN.

Wendy: FROM A 17-FOOT

FALL.

I WAS NEVER GOING TO BE

IN CONTROL OF MY LIFE

AGAIN.

Wendy: THEIR

DESPERATE PLEA.

PLEASE GIVE US

SOMETHING.

Wendy: AND A DIVINE

RESPONSE.

THERE IS NO WAY YOU

COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT THAT

WAS A MIRACLE.

Wendy: OUR WEEK OF

PRAYER CONTINUES ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

HAIL MARY IS GOOD IF

YOU'RE DOWN IN A FOOTBALL

GAME AND YOU THROW THAT

LONG PASS AND HOPE

SOMEBODY CATCHES IT.

WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE

SENATOR CRUZ THINKS THAT

HAIL MARYS ARE GOING TO DO

SOME GAD FOR HIM.

GOOD FOR HIM.

I DOUBT IT SINCERELY, BUT

HE HAS CHOSEN A VERY

INTELLIGENT, ATTRACTIVE

LADY, CARLY FIORINA, AS

HIS RUNNINGMATE.

BUT WHAT IS SHE GOING TO

BE THE MATE TO?

Terry: AND TRUMP IS

LAYING OUT HIS DECISION OF

WHAT HE WOULD DO AS

PRESIDENT IN THE AREA OF

FOREIGN POLICY.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

MY FRIEND AND THE NEXT

VICE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES, CARLY

FIORINA!

Reporter: IT'S AN

UNUSUAL MOVE FOR A

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE TO

PICK A VICE PRESIDENTIAL

RUNNINGMATE BEFORE WINNING

HIS PARTY'S NOMINATION,

EVEN MORE UNUSUAL WHEN HIS

PATH TO THE NOMINATION IS

BLOCKED.

BUT TED CRUZ WENT AHEAD

AND ANNOUNCED HIS CHOICE.

I AM PREPARED TO STAND

BY HIS SIDE AND GIVE THIS

EVERYTHING I HAVE.

Reporter: CARLY

FIORINA TUSSLED WITH TRUMP

EARLY IN THE PRIMARY

SEASON FOR COMMENTS HE

MADE ABOUT HER FACE.

AND THE G.O.P.

FRONT-RUNNER DISMISSED

THIS LATEST MOVE.

A NEW RELATIONSHIP HAS

STARTED, CRUZ AND CARLY.

CRUZ CAN'T WIN, WHAT'S HE

DOING PICKING VICE

PRESIDENTS.

Reporter: TRUMP GAVE

A MAJOR FOREIGN POLICY

SPEECH IN WASHINGTON, AND

WARNED AMERICA'S ALLIES

THEY'LL NEED TO START

PAYING FOR THEIR OWN

DEFENSE.

HE ALSO RAILED ON THE BUSH

AND OBAMA ADMINISTRATIONS

FOR NOT STOPPING THE

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

WE HAVE DONE NOTHING TO

HELP THE CHRISTIANS,

NOTHING.

AND WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE

ASHAMED FOR THAT.

FOR THAT LACK OF ACTION.

Reporter: TRUMP WENT

FROM THERE TO INDIANA,

WHERE HE GOT THE

ENDORSEMENT OF INDIANA

HOOSIERS BASKETBALL COACH

BOBBY KNIGHT.

IF WE WIN INDIANA, IT'S

OVER.

I'M NOT PLAYING GAMES WITH

INDIANA.

Reporter: AFTER

INDIANA VOTES, HILLARY

CLINTON IS HOPING IT IS

ALL OVER FOR BERNIE

SANDERS.

DELEGATE MATH IS NOT WITH

SANDERS, WHO RALLIED

THOUSANDS OF SCREAMING

FANS AT INDIANA UNIVERSITY

HOURS AFTER HE ANNOUNCED

THE LAYOFF OF HUNDREDS OF

CAMPAIGN STAFFERS.

NEXT TUESDAY, LET US

HAVE THE HIGHEST VOTER

TURNOUT IN INDIANA

HISTORY.

Reporter: TED CRUZ IS

40 DELEGATE400 DELEGATES BEHIND

TRUMP.

IF HE DOESN'T WIN INDIANA,

ANALYSTS SAY IT IS ALL

OVER.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I WAS WATCHING

CRUDHAMMER WHO DUMPED ON

THE FOREIGN POLICY SPEECH.

OTHERS SAY IT WAS A

HOME-RUN.

AND OTHER FOREIGN POLICY

EXPERTS APPLAUDED IT.

I THOUGHT HE DID A VERY

GOOD JOB.

YOU CAN ONLY SAY SO MUCH

IN A SPEECH.

AND IT TAKES 20, 25

MINUTES.

YOU CAN'T OUTLINE A BOOK

ON FOREIGN POLICY.

WHAT HE IS SAYING TOUCHES

THE HEART OF A LOT OF

AMERICANS.

HE SAID, LOOK, WE'VE BEEN

KICKED AROUND, WE'VE BEEN

ABUSED, THEY'VE TAKEN

ADVANTAGE OF US.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT NATO,

ONLY TWO NATIONS GIVE 2%

OF THEIR G.D.P. TOWARDS

MILITARY.

THE REST OF THEM AREN'T

CARRYING THEIR LOAD.

AND IT'S TRUE -- WORLD WAR

II ENDED A LONG TIME AUG,

1945, AND WE STILL HAVE

SUBSTANTIAL TROOPS IN

GERMANY.

GERMANY IS A BIG POWER.

WHY SHOULD WE PAY THE BILL

FOR THAT?

THAT'S WHAT TRUMP IS

SAYING.

AND WE'VE GOT A HUGE

CONTINGENT IN KOREA, AND

IT IS A HUGE NATION, VERY

PROSPEROUS -- WHY SHOULD

WE PICK UP THE TAB FOR

DEFENDING THEM AGAINST THE

NORTH.

IT DOESN'T MEAN WE PULL

BACK FROM INTERNATIONAL

COMMITMENTS, BUT IT MEANS

WE'VE GOT TO ASK THEM TO

PAY THE BILLS.

THAT'S WHAT TRUMP IS

SAYING, WE'VE BEEN LIKE

UNCLE SUCKER.

I THINK A LOT OF AMERICANS

ARE SAYING, YES, DONALD,

YOU'RE SAYING IT RIGHT.

THIS, I THINK, WILL HELP

PROPEL HIM ALONG THE WAY.

IT'S ONLY A LITTLE MORE TO

GO.

INDIANA COULD BE A REAL

TURNING POINT.

CRUZ -- IF HE LOSES

INDIANA, HE IS FINISHED.

AND TRUMP MAY SAY -- HE

HAS ALREADY DECLARED

HIMSELF THE PRESUMPTIVE

NOMINEE.

THERE IS STILL A LOT OF

NEGOTIATING BACK AND

FORTH.

BUT I DO THINK THAT HIS

VICE PRESIDENT IS SITTING

THERE IN OHIO.

JOHN KASICH HASN'T WON

ANYTHING FOR PRESIDENT.

I UNDERSTAND THE RULES ARE

SUCH THAT HE NOW CANNOT

QUALIFY TO BE THE NOMINEE

FOR PRESIDENT.

BUT HE CERTAINLY WOULD

MAKE A FANTASTIC VICE

PRESIDENT AND BRING A LOT

OF WEIGHT TO THE TICKET.

BUT THAT'S UP TO DONALD

TRUMP TO DECIDE.

> IN OTHER NEWS, IT

LOOKS AS IF THE SUPREME

COURT IS GOING TO SIDE

WITH FORMER VIRGINIA

GOVERNOR BOB McDONALD

AGAINST THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT.

THE JUSTICES WANTED TO

KNOW IF FEDERAL

PROSECUTORS WENT TOO FAR

IN THEIR CHARGES AGAINST

THE SITTING GOVERNOR.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

John: THANKS, PAT.

THE JUSTICES HAD TOUGH

QUESTIONS FOR THE

GOVERNMENT ABOUT

McDONALD'S CONVICTION ON

CORRUPTION CHARGES UNDER

FEDERAL LAW.

THE CASE COULD HAVE

IMPLICATION FOR ELECTED

OFFICIALS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

THE JUSTICES WANTED TO

KNOW IF THEY COULD USE A

VAGUE LAW TO CHARGE A

POLITICIAN WITH A CRIME,

EVEN IF HE OR SHE WASN'T

DOING ANYTHING OUT OF THE

ORDINARY.

JENNIFER WISHON BRINGS US

THIS STORY.

Jennifer: IT LOOK

LIKE A VERY GOOD DAY IN

THE NATION'S HIGHEST COURT

FOR BOB McDONALD.

THE FORMER VIRGINIA

GOVERNOR IS FACING TWO

YEARS IN PRISON AFTER

BEING CONVICTED OF

POLITICAL CORRUPTION.

BUT JUSTICES SEEMED POISED

TO OVERTURN HIS

CONVICTION.

NEVER, DURING ANY TIME

IN MY 38 YEARS OF PUBLIC

SERVICE, HAVE I EVER DONE

ANYTHING THAT WOULD ABUSE

THE POWERS OF MY OFFICE.

Reporter: AT ISSUE IS

A FEDERAL LAW THAT FORBIDS

PUBLIC OFFICIALS FROM

ACCEPTING MONEY IN

EXCHANGE FOR OFFICIAL

ACTS.

THE QUESTION IS: WHAT

QUALIFIES AS AN OFFICIAL

ACT?

IN COURT, JUSTICES

GRAPPLED WITH WHERE TO

DRAW THE LINE BETWEEN

CORRUPTION, GIVING AWAY

FAVORS IN RETURN FOR

GIFTS, AND ORDINARY PUBLIC

SERVICE.

JUSTICES ON BOTH SIDES OF

THE IDEOLOGICAL DIVIDE

SEEMED TROUBLED BY THE

NEARLY UNBRIDELED POWER

FEDERAL PROSECUTORS HAVE

TO GO AFTER ELECTED

OFFICIALS WHO ARE WORKING

TO HELP THE CON TITC CONSTITUENTS

WHO HIRED THEM.

JUSTICE STEVEN BUYER WAS

THE MORE OUTSPOKEN, SAYING

THAT THE LAW USED TO

CONVICT McDONALD PUTS AT

RISK THE BEHAVIOR THAT IS

COMMON.

THEY CHARGED McDONALD

FOR GIVING OUT FAVORS IN

RETURN FOR GIFTS.

BUT LAWYERS SAY HE NEVER

GAVE ANYTHING BACK AFTER

RECEIVING GIFTS.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS

REMARKED, I THINK IT IS

EXTRAORDINARY THAT THOSE

PEOPLE AGREE ON ANYTHING.

IT HAS BEEN A THREE-YEAR

NIGHTMARE FOR THE

McDONALD FAMILY.

THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS,

THE FORMER GOVERNOR HAS

RELIED ON HIS CATHOLIC

FAITH.

I WANT TO GIVE CREDIT

TO MY LORD JESUS FOR HIS

SUSTAINING ME AND MY WIFE

AND MY FAMILY DURING THESE

LAST 39 MONTHS THAT HAVE

BEEN VERY, VERY DIFFICULT.

Reporter: HE AND HIS

WIFE, MAUREEN, WHO ALSO

FACES PRISON TIME, HAVE

TRIED TO MAINTAIN SOME

LEVEL OF NORMALCY WHILE

THEY AWAIT THE RULINGS ON

THEIR CASES.

GOVERNOR McDONALD EVEN

VOLUNTEERS FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING."

I HAVE TWO

GRANDCHILDREN AND TWO MORE

ON THE WAY, AND I STARTED

A NEW BUSINESS.

I'VE GOT THE MOST AMAZING

FRIENDS IN THE WORLD AND

FELT MORE LOVE AND SUPPORT

IN THE LAST TWO YEARS THAN

AT ANY TIME IN MY LIFE.

I'M A VERY BLESSED MAN.

Reporter: ALONG WITH

HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH,

McDONALD, AN ATTORNEY

HIMSELF, HAS ALWAYS

EXPRESSED FAITH IN THE

LAW.

I HAVE GIVEN MY LIFE TO

THE LAW FOR 38 YEARS.

I KNOW THE JUSTICE SYSTEM

WILL GET THIS RIGHT.

Reporter: THE COURT

IS EXPECTED TO ISSUE ITS

RULING IN JUNE.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE SUPREME COURT.

John: THANKS,

JENNIFER.

PAT, DO YOU AGREE WITH

GOVERNOR McDONALD, THAT

THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS

GOING TO GET IT RIGHT ON

THIS ONE?

Pat: YOU WOULD HOPE

SO.

IN THIS CASE, I THINK IT

IS GOING TO BE THE CASE.

THE SUPREME COURT -- IF

SCALIA HAD BEEN STILL ON

THE COURT, IT WOULD HAVE

BEEN A SO-CALLED

SLAM-DUNK.

IT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE

BEEN 5 TO 2 IN FAVOR OF

McDONALD.

THE FRIENDS OF THE COURT,

THE SO-CALLED MIKAS BRIEFS

THAT WERE FILED, GO ACROSS

THE BROAD SPECTRUM OF

ATTORNEY-GENERALS.

AND LANNY DAVIS, WHO WAS

THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL

FOR CLINTON, AND

PROFESSORS FROM HARVARD --

THEY ALL SAY, HERE IS THE

SITUATION, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

WE HAVE IN VIRGINIA VERY

LIBERAL LAWS.

THERE IS NO CRIME

WHATSOEVER IN AN OFFICIAL

RECEIVING GIFTS.

NONE WHATSOEVER.

AS LONG AS THEY DECLARES

THE GIFTS.

SO IF HE GOT A MILLION

DOLLARS FROM SOMEBODY, IT

IS A GIFT.

OKAY.

NOW, THE QUESTION IS: DID

THE MAN BUY SOMETHING FOR

THAT GIFT?

AND IF IN TURN THE

GOVERNOR OR THE OFFICIAL

THEN SITS DOWN AND SAYS,

OKAY, I NOW GIVE YOU WATER

RIGHTS OVER THE CHESAPEAKE

BAY IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR

GIFT, THAT IS A SO-CALLED

QUID PRO QUO, AND THAT IS

ILLEGAL.

THAT IS CORRUPTION.

IT CAME UP WITH BOB

McDONALD, A MAN SAYS,

WHY DON'T YOU RIDE IN MY

FERRARI.

BIG DEAL.

WHY DON'T YOU STAY AT MY

HUNTING LODGE IN THE

MOUNTAINS.

BIG DEAL.

IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

WOULD YOU HAVE HOST A

MEETING IN THE GOVERNOR'S

MANSION FOR SOME

SUPPORTERS OF MY

COMPANY -- ALL THE TIME

PUBLIC OFFICIALS DO THAT

BECAUSE THEIR JOB IS TO

PROMOTE BUSINESS FROM

THEIR CONSTITUENTS, AND TO

BRING BUSINESS TO THE

STATE, AND TO OFFER

FRIENDS FAVORABLE

SITUATIONS FOR THOSE DOING

BUSINESS AS THEIR

CONSTITUENTS.

THAT'S WHAT THEY DID.

IT IS WHEN THEY START --

IT'S THE QUID PRO QUO.

YOU GET THE QUID, BUT YOU

DON'T GET THE QUO.

BOB McDONALD A GAVE THAT

MAN NOTHING.

NOTHING.

THE JUDGE WHO RULED ON

THIS RULED INCORRECTLY.

HE GAVE A CHARGE TO THE

JURY THAT WAS HIGHLY

SLANTED.

AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

WAS TRYING TO GET SOMEBODY

WHO WAS A POTENTIAL

SENATORAL SEAT.

THIS WAS POLITICS.

AND THE SUPREME COURT, GOD

BLESS THEM, IS COMING OUT

RIGHT.

AND CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS

IS ASKING THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT, ALL RIGHT,

TELL US WHO YOU CAN

PROSECUTE.

WHAT ACTS WOULD THEY HAVE

TO DO?

THEY COULD SEND OUT

NEWSLETTERS IN FAVOR OF A

COMPANY, AND THAT COULD BE

IN VIOLATION.

WELL, IT'S TOO VAGUE.

AND UNDER OUR LAW, YOU DO

NOT PUT SOMEBODY IN JAIL

UNDER A LAW THAT IS SO

VAGUE THEY CAN'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

AND THAT'S WHAT JUSTICE

BRIAR WAS STALKING ABOUT.

THIS WAS

UNCONSTITUTIONALLY VAGUE.

AFTER ALL OF THESE YEARS,

I KEEP REMINDING MY DEAR

FRIEND BOB McDONALD WHAT

HAPPENED TO JOB.

HE IS GOING TO BE A

STRONGER MAN, A DEDICATED

CHRISTIAN, AND A GREAT

PUBLIC SERVE VANLT.

HSERVANT.

HE IS ONE OF THE BEST

GOVERNORS WE'VE EVER HAD

IN VIRGINIA, AND THIS

THING IS A DISGRACE.

THANK GOD.

AND WE'RE FINDING PEOPLE

FROM CNN AND OTHERS WHO

HAVE HEARD OF THE

JUSTICES, AND REALIZE

WHERE THAT CASE IS GOING.

KEEP PRAYING FOR BOB.

THEY VOTE AND THEN THEY

DECIDE WHO IS GOING TO

WRITE THE DECISION.

AND THE CHIEF WILL DECIDE

WHICH MEMBER OF THE

SUPREME COURT WILL WRITE

THE DECISION.

AND WE'LL HAVE A DECISION

SOMETIME IN JUNE.

Terry: THE SUPPORT

HE'S HAD FROM HIS OWN

PEERS IS REMARKABLE.

Pat: HE HAD BUSINESS

LEADERS, HE HAD

EDUCATIONAL LEADERS, HE

HAD ALL KINDS OF

DISTINGUISHED LAWYERS ON

BOTH SIDES OF THIS -- GUYS

LIKE LANNY DAVIS AND

OTHERS WHO SAY THIS IS A

MISAPPLICATION OF LAW.

IF THIS HOBBS ACT IS

SUPPOSED TO BE INTERPRETED

THIS WAY, THEN IT IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE

JUSTICES ARE SAYING.

Terry: CAN ANY SAY,

ALSO, THAT'S THE KIND OF

POLITICAL JUNK THAT PEOPLE

ARE SICK OF.

Pat: THEY ARE.

THEY REALLY ARE.

THEY DON'T WANT CROOKED

POLITICIANS, BUT HERE IS

AN HONEST MAN WHO IS BEING

PILPILLARED BECAUSE IT IS AN

HONEST MAN.

AND HE COULD HAVE BEEN

VICE PRESIDENT FOR MITT

ROMNEY.

THEY WENT OUT TO GET HIM.

AND THIS IS A DIRTY GAME.

BUT THE MAN -- HE HAS GONE

TO HIS KNEES.

HE HAS CRIED OUT TO GOD.

HE HAS EXALTED THE LORD

JESUS CHRIST, AND GOD IS

GOING TO HONOR HIM.

WOW, WHAT A STORY.

> WELL, JOHN, WHAT'S

NEXT?

John: PAT, AFTER THE

RECENT EARTHQUAKES ALONG

THE RING OF FIRE IN

ECUADOR AND JAPAN, SOME

PEOPLE HAVE RAISED

QUESTIONS ABOUT POSSIBLE

NATURAL DISASTERS RIGHT

HERE IN THE U.S.

THE BIGGEST ONE COULD COME

FROM YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL

PARK.

BACK IN 2011, PAUL STRAND

VISITED YELLOWSTONE AND

FILED THIS REPORT ABOUT

HOW DEVASTATING AN

ERUPTION THERE WOULD BE.

Reporter: RECENT NEWS

STORIES WARN YELLOWSTONE

IS ON THE MOVE.

SINCE 2003, THE GROUND HAS

BEEN EXPANDING UPWARDS AT

AN ACCELERATED PACE,

SOMETIMES AS MUCH AS THREE

INCHES A YEAR.

WE HAVE SIGNIFICANT

GROUND MOVEMENT OVER TENS

OF SQUARE MILES.

Reporter: THAT

ACCELERATED EXPANDING HAS

SOME FOLKS WORRIED BECAUSE

YELLOWSTONE IS BASICALLY A

SLOWLY TICKING TIME BOMB,

THAT WILL BLOW.

BECAUSE YELLOWSTONE IS THE

THE WORLD'S LARGEST MEGA

VOLCANO.

AND IT HAS PRODUCED THREE

OF THE PLANET'S MOST

MONSTEROUS ERUPTIONS.

HOLLYWOOD IN THE DOOMSDAY

FLICK 2012 IMAGINED WHAT

IT WOULD LOOK LIKE IF IT

HAPPENS AGAIN.

WITH THE MAIN CHARACTER

RUNNING AND FLYING AWAY

FROM THE CLOUDS.

HE COULDN'T REALLY HAVE

RACED, RUN, OR FLEW FAST

ENOUGH TO GET AWAY.

ALL OF YELLOWSTONE'S

NATURAL BEAUTY, ANY

WILDLIFE THAT HADN'T

SPREAD AND HUMANS WHO

COULDN'T RUN FAST ENOUGH,

WOULD BE ANNILHILATED.

IT WOULD BLOCK SUNLIGHT

AND PLUNGE EARTH

TEMPERATURES ANYWHERE FROM

9 TO 15 FOR YEARS.

SUCH EVENTS COULD RESULT

IN THE RUIN OF WORLD

AGRICULTURE, SEVERE

DISRUPTION OF FOOD

SUPPLIES, AND MASS

STARVATION.

THE EFFECTS COULD BE

SUFFICIENTLY SEVERE TO

THREATEN THE FABRIC OF

CIVILIZATION, AND THAT'S

WHAT COULD LEAD TO

POSSIBLY A BILLION

CASUALTIES.

HALF OF THE WORLD'S GUYS

SERGEYSERS HERE IN

YELLOWSTONE.

IT IS AMERICA'S HOTTEST

HOT SPOT.

IT IS WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE

NEXT MEGA EXPLOSION, AND

THAT THREAT IS WHAT KEEPS

SCIENTISTS LOCKING G.P.S.

MONITORING ON THE PARK'S

SURFACE 24 HOURS A DAY.

AND THE CENTER OF

YELLOWSTONE IS RISING

ABOUT TWO INCHES A YEAR.

IF WE WERE GETTING

ABOUT A YARD PER YEAR, WE

WERE GET REAL EXCITED.

Reporter: BECAUSE

THAT COULD SIGNAL MAGMA IS

ON THE WAY UP, READY TO

CAUSE A RERUN.

HERE IS SOME OF

YELLOWSTONE'S LAVA.

IMAGINE IF IT ERUPTED IN

THE LARGEST EXPLOSION OF

ALL OF EARTH'S HISTORY.

IT LEFT A CRATER SO MANY

MILES ACROSS YOU COULD

DROP TOKYO RIGHT IN THE

MIDDLE AND HAVE ROOM LEFT

OVER.

HANK HESLER SAYS THAT MEGA

EXPLOSION BLASTED

600 CUBIC MILES OF MOLTON

ROCK OUT OF THIS GROUND,

ENOUGH TO BLAST ALL OF NEW

YORK CITY.

THAT IS 6,000 TIMES

LARGER THAN MOUNT SAINT

HELENS.

Reporter: SINCE THE

MEGA ERUPTIONS, IT HAS

BEEN FILLED IN BY SOME 80

SMALLER ERUPTIONS THAT

SPEWED UP LAVA.

WE KNOW THOSE ARE IN

YELLOWSTONE'S FUTURE, BUT

THE BIG, SUPER VOLCANO, WE

DO NOT KNOW.

Reporter: BUT

SCIENTISTS SAY DON'T WORRY

ABOUT VISITING YELLOWSTONE

BECAUSE THE SIGNS OF AN

ERUPTION WOULD BE WEEKS,

MAYBE EVEN DECADES OR

CENTURIES BEFORE THE BIG

BLOW.

John: THANKS, PAUL.

SOME PRETTY FRIGHTENING

SCENARIOS IN PAUL'S

REPORT.

Pat: I USED TO WORK

IN YELLOWSTONE.

I WAS AT A FILLING

STATION, PUMPING GAS, AND

WE WERE PUMPING 8,000

GALLONS A DAY.

IT WAS REALLY BUSY.

WHEN WE HAD A BREAK, WE

WOULD GO OFF AND WE WOULD

SWIM IN THOSE GEYSERS.

YELLOWSTONE LAKE IS

FREEZING COLD, BUT THE

GEYSERS WERE COMING UP,

AND WE WOULD HAVE LIKE A

WARM WATER SWIMMING POOL,

AND IT WAS GREAT.

HERE IS THE DEAL: THEY SAY

IF IT ERUPTED -- IT HAS

BEEN ABOUT 630,000 YEARS

SINCE THE LAST ONE, BUT IF

IT BLEW, WE WOULD HAVE

ABOUT 2300 CUBIC MILES OF

STUFF THROWN INTO THE

ATMOSPHERE.

IT WOULD TAKE THE

TEMPERATURE DOWN ABOUT 8

OR 9, AND IT WOULD GO ALL

AROUND THE WORLD IN A

CLOUD OF ASH.

WE'RE SITTING IN AMERICA

ON THE MOST DANGEROUS

EARTHQUAKE POTENTIAL.

A VOLCANIC POTENTIAL, IN

THE WORLD.

WITH THE RING OF FIRE --

YOU READ SOMETHING ABOUT

SOMETHING IN JAPAN AND IN

INDONESIA, AND ONE IN

ECUADOR, BUT REMEMBER

YELLOWSTONE IS SITTING

THERE IN THAT OVERALL ZONE

OF INSTABILITY AS THE

PLATES ARE CRUSHING.

WE DON'T WANT TO SCARE

YOU, BUT IT IS FUN TO KNOW

ABOUT IT.

YOU BETTER GET RIGHT WITH

THE LORD.

IF THE THING BLOWS UP,

HALLELUJAH, WE GO UP TO BE

WITH JESUS.

Terry: THANKFULLY

THEY'RE ABLE TO MONITOR

IT.

Pat: A LOT OF GOOD

THAT IS GOING TO DO.

THE MAN IN THE BACKGROUND,

THEY SAY, WHAT ARE YOU

DOING?

ARE YOU A GUARD?

I'M A MONITOR.

YOU CAN SAY, A RO ROBBERY IS

TAKING PLACE.

THAT'S ALL YOU CAN SAY,

THERE IS GOING TO BE AN

EXPLOSION, BUT THERE IS

NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP

IT.

Terry: COMING UP, A

NEW ORGANIZATION THAT IS

TARGETING YOUNG VOTERS.

PEOPLE JUST LOVE IT,

USING WHAT MILLENNIALS

KNOW AND WHAT MILLENNIALS

LOVE TO GET THEM ENGAGED.

IT IS SO FUN TO WATCH.

Terry: YOU'LL SEE FOR

YOURSELF WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: HALF OF ALL OF

THESE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE

SO-CALLED MILLENNIALS, AND

THEY IDENTIFY OR LEAN

TOWARDS THE DEMOCRATIC

PARTY.

WHICH ACCOUNTS FOR, AMONG

OTHER THINGS, THE HUGE

CROWDS THAT BERNIE SANDERS

HAS, ANNOUNCED SOCIALIST.

ONE REASON WHY IT IS NO

SURPRISE, BECAUSE NO MAJOR

ORGANIZATION IS WORKING TO

REACH THEM WITH

CONSERVATIVE IDEAS.

AND ALL THEY'RE HEARING IN

COLLEGES ARE THE LEFT-WING

MANTRA, AND THEY DON'T

HAVE A CLUE -- AND I MEAN

THIS LITERALLY -- THEY

DON'T HAVE A CLUE ABOUT

THE HISTORY OF AMERICA.

BUT THEY'RE VOTERS, OR CAN

BE WHEN THEY GET 18 OR

21 -- WHATEVER THE RULES

ARE.

UNTIL NOW, THEY'RE

BEGINNING TO LEARN.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US

THE STORY OF ONE MAN ON A

MISSION TO DELIVER A

MESSAGE OF CONSERVATISM TO

COLLEGE CAMPUSES.

Reporter: WHILE THE

GRAND OLD PARTY ISN'T

KNOWN FOR REACHING THE

YOUNG, THERE IS A

CONSERVATIVE YOUTH

MOVEMENT THAT IS ALIVE AND

GROWING.

AS YOU CAN SEE AT THIS

RECENT C-PAC CONFERENCE,

TIMELESS PRINCIPLES

DELIVERED IN

MILLENNIALLY-SAVSAVVY WAYS.

WE WANT TO GET OUT

THERE AND BE THE GROUND

THAT OBAMA WAS DOING IN

2008 AND 2012 -- BEING OUT

THERE AND ACTIVE, GETTING

ON CAMPUSES, AND HITTING

THE LIBERALS WHERE IT

HURTS.

Reporter: THE

ORGANIZATION BEHIND THIS

CONTROLLED CHAOS, "TURNING

POINT U.S.A.."

CHARLIE KIRK STARTED IT AT

THE RIPE YOUNG AGE OF 18.

TODAY HE OVERSEES MORE

THAN 1,000 CHAPTERS ON

COLLEGE CAMPUSES ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

WE MET UP WITH KIRK AT

OHIO STATE, WHERE HE TOLD

US THE BIRTH OF "TURNING

POINT" CAME AFTER HE

DISCOVERED NO MAJOR

ORGANIZATION EXISTED FOR

REACHING YOUNG PEOPLE.

WE'RE UP AGAINST

UNPARALLELLED OPPOSITION,

UP AGAINST A WELL-OILED

MACHINE OVER THE PAST 10

YEARS.

Reporter: IT CENTERS

AROUND ONE O O ONE-ON-ONE

CONVERSATION WITH COLLEGE

STUDENTS, MANY OF WHOM

HAVE NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO

THE RIGOR BEHIND

CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES.

A MAJORITY OF THE YOUTH

VOTE IS GOING TO THE

DIRECTIONAL LEFT -- NOR DO

THEY ENDORSE THOSE IDEAS

WHOLEHEARTEDLY.

IT IS A LOT OF YOUNG

PEOPLE, WHO, FOR WHATEVER

REASON, THEY IDENTIFY

THEMSELVES AT LIBERAL.

BUT WHAT YOU'LL FIND IS

MOST OF THESE PEOPLE, WHEN

YOU START ASKING THEM WHY

THEY BELIEVE CERTAIN

THINGS, WHAT THEY REALLY

WANT IS LESS GOVERNMENT IN

THEIR LIFE.

Reporter: CRUP HAS

ASSESSED THAT SMALL

GOVERNMENT IS A WINNING

POINT FOR CONVERSATION

TRYING TO INFLUENCE YOUNG

MINDS.

AND HE ALSO DECIDED TO

LEAVE THE SOCIAL ISSUES

FOR HIS LIBERAL OPPONENTS.

THEY TALK ABOUT GAY

MARRIAGE, ABORTION O, AND

DRUG LEGALLATION.

LEGALIZATION.

LET'S TALK ABOUT TAXES

BEING TOO HIGH AND

GOVERNMENT BEING TOO BIG.

Reporter: HE WANTS TO

DOUBLE HIS FIELD STAFF TO

100 BY THIS SUMMER, AND

START A CHAPTER ON EVERY

MAJOR CAMPUS IN KEY VOTING

STATES, LIKE FLORIDA,

VIRGINIA, AND OHIO.

HIS STRATEGY INCLUDES

SELLING CONSERVATIVE

VALUES THROUGH NON-STOP

SOCIAL MEDIA AND HEAVY USE

OF POP CULTURE.

AT CEDARVILLE UNIVERSITY,

CARLY USES DIFFERENT

THEMES TO DRAW IN

STUDENTS.

USING WHAT MILLENNIALS

KNOW AND WHAT MILLENNIALS

LOVE TO GET THEM ENGAGED

IS SO FUN TO WATCH.

Reporter: BUT

"TURNING POINT" IS UP

AGAINST POWERFUL FORCES,

LIKE THE MEDIA, HOLLYWOOD,

AND WHAT KIRK CONSIDERS

HIS CHIEF OPPONENT,

ACADEMIA.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF

THEM WILL TEACH LEFTIST

DOGMA AS FACTS, AND WILL

USE THEIR POSITION OF

INFLUENCE, USING GREAT

LEVERAGING THROUGH

OSTRACIZING STUDENTS,

MAKING THEM FEEL ALONE,

MAKING THEM FEEL STUPID.

Reporter: ELECTION

EXPERTS AND MANY POLITICAL

LEADERS AGREE, THE THE

YOUTH VOTE IS KEY TO

POLITICAL SURVIVAL.

IF YOU'RE NOT ALWAYS

TRAINING THE THE NEXT

GENERATION, HOW DO YOU

EVER PASS ON THE LEGACY?

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA CAPTURED TWO-THIRDS

OF THIS GROUP IN 2012.

ANALYSTS BELIEVE MITT

ROMNEY WOULD HAVE WON IF

HE WOULD HAVE ONLY SPLIT

THAT VOTE WITH OBAMA.

KIRK SAYS TODAY'S YOUNG

PEOPLE WANT A PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE WHO IS

AUTHENTIC, LIKEABLE, AND

CAN REALITY TO THEIR

WORLD.

SO WHEN A CANDIDATE,

FOR EXAMPLE, IS TRYING TO

COMMUNICATE TO A YOUNGER

AUDIENCE, AND THEY DON'T

KNOW JUST THE BASIC TERMS

OF VOCABULARY, TWITTER,

INSTAGRAM, Facebook, CAN

KANYE WEST, THE

KARDASHIAN -- THAT DOESN'T

NECESSARILY MAKE YOU VERY

LIKEABLE.

Reporter: IT'S

ABILITY TO WIN OVER YOUNG

MINDS TO A CONSERVATIVE

WORLD VIEW COULD AFFECT

THIS ELECTION AND MANY

MORE IN THE YEARS TO COME.

REPORTING IN COLUMBUS,

OHIO, HEATHER SELLS, CBN

NEWS.

Terry: WELL, THAT'S A

MOVEMENT THAT NEEDS

TRACKING.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE THE IMPACT THAT

THEY'RE ABLE TO HAVE.

> UP NEXT, A YOUNG WOMAN

TAKES A CRIPPLING FALL,

AND DOCTORS TELL HER

BOYFRIEND TRAGIC NEWS.

SHE'LL BE PARALYZED

FROM THE CHEST DOWN AND

WILL NEVER WALK AGAIN.

HEARING THOSE WORDS FROM A

DOCTOR, IT HITS YOU LIKE A

LOAD OF BRICKS.

Terry: WATCH AS THIS

WOMAN MAKES A MIRACULOUS

RECOVERY, AND HEAR WHY SHE

SAYS HER ACCIDENT HAS

BECOME THE BIGGEST

BLESSING IN HER LIFE.

Terry: WE'RE HAVING A

TREMENDOUS WEEK OF PRAYER.

YESTERDAY WE HEARD FROM

THE PASTOR OF THE FOURTH

LARGEST CHURCH IN AMERICA,

ROBERT MORRIS.

AND WE ALSO CONTINUED TO

PRAY FOR THE REQUESTS YOU

OUR PARTNERS AND VIEWERS

HAVE SENT IN.

TAKE A LOOK.

WE'RE ASKING FOR EVERY

ONE OF THESE SITUATIONS

ALL AROUND THE WORLD, THE

THE REQUESTS WE'VE HELD,

THOSE THAT ARE EXPRESSED

AND THOSE THAT ARE CALLING

IN RIGHT NOW, THOSE THAT

ARE LOGGING ON TO

cbn.com, JESUS WE THANK

YOU FOR THIS APPOINTMENT

AND THE THE GIFT OF FAITH.

WHAT I WANT TO GET

ACROSS IS GOD NEEDS YOU.

BUT HERE IS MY FIRST

POINT, POINT NUMBER ONE:

GOD DOESN'T NEED ANYTHING.

[LAUGHTER]

HERE'S POINT NUMBER

TWO: GOD DECIDED TO NEED

YOU.

NOW, HE DOESN'T NEED YOU

TO EXIST.

HE DECIDED TO NEED YOU TO

CO-EXIST.

SO HERE IS POINT NUMBER

THREE: HAVE YOU DECIDED TO

NEED GOD?

LET GOD SHOW YOU WHAT YOUR

PART IS AND START

COOPERATING WITH GOD

BECAUSE GOD NEEDS YOU.

Terry: THE MESSAGES

WE'RE GETTING ARE SO

WONDERFUL.

YOU CAN JOIN US DURING OUR

CHAPEL SERVICES, STREAMING

LIVE ADAY THIS WEEK.

EVERY DAY THIS WEEK.

LOG ON TO cbn.com AT

NOON EASTERN TIME.

Pat: MORRIS IS A

DELIGHTFUL PERSON AND A

WONDERFUL SPEAKER.

HIS GATEWAY CHURCH IN

DALLAS IS HUGE.

THERE IS A VERSE OF JOB

THAT SAYS, YOUR HEART WILL

YEARN FOR THE CREATURE

THAT YOUR HANDS HAVE MADE.

THAT GOD ALMIGHTY WILL

YEARN FOR THE CREATURE OF

HIS HANDS.

HE MADE ME, MADE YOU, MADE

US ALL, BUT HE BEGINS TO

YEARN FOR US.

AMAZING.

> WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT

LATER.

BUT RIGHT NOW I WANT TO

INTRODUCE TO YOU A WALKING

MIRACLE.

LIZ MITCHELL.

AFTER SHE BROKE HER NECK,

DOCTORS TOLD HER BOYFRIEND

YOU'RE GIRLFRIEND IS NEVER

GOING TO WALK AGAIN.

BUT LIZ AND HER BOYFRIEND

REFUSED TO BELIEVE THAT

WORD.

YOU KNOW THAT SONG, WHO'S

REPORT DO YOU BELIEVE?

I'M GOING TO BELIEVE THE

REPORT OF THE LORD.

WELL, THEY TRUSTED THE

POWER OF GOD ALMIGHTY.

Reporter: IN THE FALL

OF 2012, DALLAS DISTRICT

ATTORNEY LIZ MITCHELL WAS

IN GREAT SHAPE, BUT HER

QUEST FOR PERFECTION CAME

AT A PRICE.

INSIDE I HAD NOTHING.

I WAS EMPTY AND UNHAPPY,

AND NOTHING WAS EVER GOOD

ENOUGH FOR ME.

I HAD THE LOVE OF FAMILY

AND FRIENDS, BUT I JUST

ALWAYS WAS LACKING

SOMETHING.

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

THAT WAS.

Reporter: LIZ WAS

ABOUT TO FIND OUT.

SHE WAS ENTERING HER

SECOND FLOOR APARTMENT ONE

NIGHT WHEN HER DOG RUSHED

OUT TO GREET HER.

LIZ LOST HER BALANCE AND

FELL THROUGH THE RAILING,

17 FEET TO THE PAVEMENT

BELOW.

I REMEMBER LAYING ON

THE GROUND AND JUST KIND

OF CLOSING MY EYES AND

THINKING, I'M SO SORRY.

IT WAS MORE LIKE AN

APOLOGY TO GOD.

Reporter: LIZ WAS

RUSHED TO BAYLOR

UNIVERSITY CENTER.

WHEN HER BOYFRIEND

ARRIVED, THE DOCTOR TOLD

THEM SHE HAD BROKEN HER

NECK.

I REMEMBER HIS WORDS

DISTINCTLY, HE SAID,

SHE'LL BE PARALYZED FROM

THE CHEST DOWN AND WILL

NEVER WALK AGAIN.

HEARING THOSE WORDS FROM A

DOCTOR HITS YOU LIKE A

LOAD OF BRICKS.

Reporter: THEIR

RELATIONSHIP OF ONLY SIX

MONTHS WAS BASED ON

PHYSICAL ATTRACTION AND

HAVING A GOOD TIME.

NOW IN A MEDICALLY INDUCED

COMA, BRIAN HAD TO DECIDE

IF THERE WAS SOMETHING

MORE.

SEEING HER LYING IN A

BED, UNABLE TO MOVE, TUBES

IN HER MOUTH, MACHINES

BEEPING IN THE BACKGROUND,

A SWOLLEN FACE, AND IT

JUST COMPLETELY STRIPPED

THAT SUPERFICIAL LOOKS

THAT WERE KIND OF DRIVING

OUR RELATIONSHIP

PREVIOUSLY.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT SEVERAL DAYS, BRIAN'S

FOCUS SHIFTED TO ANOTHER

RELATIONSHIP HE HAD LONG

ABANDONED.

I WAS RAISED IN THE

CHURCH, AND I ALWAYS HAD A

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST,

BUT I COULD SAY THAT IT

WASN'T A FULFILLING ONE ON

MY END.

AS SOON AS THE ACCIDENT

HAPPENED, EVERYTHING KIND

OF CAME BACK, AND I JUST

DID A COMPLETE 180, AND IT

REALLY BROUGHT ABOUT A

HUGE CHANGE IN MY FAITH.

I SAID THE MOMENT SHE

WAKES UP, WE'RE GOING TO

GO TO WORK, AND WE'RE

GOING TO TRY TO MAXIMIZE

WHATEVER GOD ALLOWS HER TO

GET BACK.

AND I'M GOING TO BE HER

ROCK ALONGSIDE WITH HER.

Reporter: WHEN LIZ

CAME OUT OF THE COMA FOUR

DAYS LATER, SHE ALSO

REDEDICATED HER LIFE TO

JESUS.

I JUST ALL OF A SUDDEN

FOUND MYSELF IN THIS

SHELL, THIS BODY THAT I

THOUGHT WAS SO IMPORTANT,

AND IT WAS COMPLETELY

USELESS.

AT THAT POINT, MY MIND

JUST MADE A SHIFT THAT I

WAS NEVER GOING TO BE IN

CONTROL OF MY LIFE AGAIN,

THAT IT WAS IN THE HANDS

OF GOD.

AND WHATEVER WAS TO HAPPEN

WAS GOING TO BE HIS WILL

FOR ME.

AND THERE WAS NO SADNESS.

THERE WAS NO RESENTMENT.

IT WAS PEACE.

A FEELING OF PEACE FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

Reporter: AS BRIAN

BROKE THE NEWS TO LIZ OF

HER PROGNOSIS, HE ALSO

MADE A PROMISE.

HE WAS VERY QUICK TO

SAY, YOU KNOW, EVEN IF

YOU'RE IN A WHEELCHAIR, I

STILL LOVE YOU.

AND WE'LL HAVE A BEAUTIFUL

LIFE.

FROM THAT DAY FORWARD, HE

WAS BY MY SIDE, ALWAYS.

Reporter: BRIAN AND

LIZ PRAYED TOGETHER EVERY

NIGHT, AND WHAT WAS ONCE A

SUPERFICIAL RELATIONSHIP

QUICKLY BECAME A SPIRITUAL

ONE.

IT WAS THROUGH THOSE

CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD

THAT WE TRULY STARTED TO

BUILD THAT FOUNDATION

TOGETHER.

BUT IT WAS ALSO JUST

DURING THAT TIME THAT WE

FELL IN LOVE, TRULY IN

LOVE.

Reporter: BUT WHILE

BRIAN AND LIZ'S FAITH WAS

PROGRESSING, LIZ'S

RECOVERY SEEMED TO BE AT A

STAND STILL.

EVERY NIGHT BRIAN WOULD

ASK ME TO MOVE MY TOES.

AND WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT,

I WOULD CONCENTRATE AND

USE EVERY OUNCE OF ENERGY

I HAD TO TRY TO MOVE MY

TOES AND STILL WOULD GET

NOTHING.

Reporter: SHE WAS

TRANSFERRED TO BAYLOR

REHABILITATION CENTER AND

MET WITH THE DOCTORS.

I POINTBLANK STATEDED,

I WANT TO WALK OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL.

I WAS TOLD AT THAT TIME

THAT I NEEDED TO LOWER MY

EXPECTATIONS.

AND THAT I WAS THERE

BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO

TEACH ME HOW TO BECOME

INDEPENDENT IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

Reporter: BRIAN BRIAN

DECIDED TO PRAY AND ASK

GOD FOR A MIRACLE.

I SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT,

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

YOUR TEAM SAYS BECAUSE WE

HAVE THE ULTIMATE HEALER

ON OUR SIDE.

AND IF IT IS HIS WILL,

YOU'RE GOING TO WALK.

I SAID, LORD, I HAVE

NOTHING RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE COMPLETELY BROKEN.

I NEED SOME GUIDANCE AND I

NEED SOMETHING TO MAKE ME

FEEL LIKE THIS IS GOING TO

BE OKAY.

PLEASE GIVE ME SOMETHING.

PLEASE GIVE LIZ SOMETHING.

HE PULLED BACK THE

SHEETS AND ASKED ME TO

MOVE MY LEGS.

SHOW ME WHAT YOU JUST

DID.

THIS IS AWESOME.

I'M MOVING MY LEGS.

I'M SO PROUD OF YOU,

BABY.

THAT WAS THE

TURNINGPOINTURNINGPOINT IN HER RECOVERY.

Reporter: THE STEPS

AND THE MIRACLES WE SAW

UNFOLD IN FRONT OF OUR

EYES CAN'T BE DESCRIBED IN

SCIENCE.

Reporter: A FEW

MONTHS LATER, LIZ AND

BRIAN GOT MARRIED.

BUT THE MIRACLES WEREN'T

OVER YET.

ON DECEMBER 6, 2016,

DOROTHY WAS BORN.

THEY CHOSE THE NAME

DOROTHY BECAUSE IT MEANS

GOD'S GIFT.

CONSIDERING WHERE WE

STARTED FROM, PARALYZED

FROM THE NECK DOWN, AND

THEN YOU SEE HER IN THE

DELIVERY ROOM, PUSHING HER

OWN BABY OUT, THERE IS NO

WAY YOU COULDN'T BELIEVE

THAT IS A MIRACLE.

Reporter: LIZ AND

BRIAN ARE GRATEFUL FOR ALL

OF THEIR BLESSINGS.

BUT MOST OF ALL THEY

TREASURE THE FACT THAT

GOD'S LOVE GAVE THEM A

SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE.

WE COULD NOT BE

HAPPIER.

IT IS A MUCH MORE

FULFILLING LIFE THAT WE

HAVE TODAY, AFTER THE

ACCIDENT, THAN WE COULD

HAVE EVER IMAGINED.

WHAT LOOKED LIKE A

CURSE HAS ACTUALLY BECOME

THE BIGGEST BLESSING IN MY

LIFE BECAUSE I'M NOW THE

PERSON I'M SUPPOSED TO BE.

I AM THE HAPPIEST WOMAN

YOU'LL PROBABLY EVER MEET.

I HAVE THE LOVE OF THE

LORD.

I HAVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

FAMILY.

AND LOVE I DIDN'T EVER

THINK WAS POSSIBLE.

GOD'S LOVE IS ABSOLUTE,

AND IT IS ALL THAT MATTERS

IN THIS WORLD.

WHATEVER THAT EMPTINESS IS

IN YOUR HEART THAT YOU'RE

TRYING TO FILL WITH OTHER

THINGS, THOSE THINGS DON'T

MATTER.

THEY'RE NOT FOREVER.

HIS LOVE IS FOREVER.

SO IT'S NEVER TOO LATE.

Pat: LOVE IS FOREVER.

WHAT A MARVELOUS STORY.

HERE IS SOME PRAYER

REQUEST.

"I WANT PRAYER THAT MY

CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN

ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST."

AND ANOTHER WANTS HEALING

FROM A STROKE.

Terry: AND HERE IS

SOMEONE SAYING, I NEED

HEALING OF C.O.P.D.

ONLY A PORTION OF MY LUNGS

ARE FUNCTIONS.

SOMEONE ELSE NEEDS

EMOTIONAL HEALING AFTER

BEING DIVORCED.

HEALING FOR A 6-YEAR-OLD

BOY DEALING WITH ADVANCED

SYMPTOMS OF ADDISON

DISEASE.

AND SOMEONE SAYING, I NEED

DELIVERANCE, I FEEL LIKE

MY MIND IS GOING CRAZY.

Pat: GOD IS ON THE

THRONE.

HE CREATED EVERYTHING.

HE MADE YOU.

HE MADE THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

HE CONTROLS THE LIGHT, HE

CONTROLS THE THE DARKNESS.

HE CONTROLS THE WEALTH.

HE CONTROLS EVERYTHING.

SO WE'RE GOING TO JOIN

HANDS.

AND, LORD, WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE YOU.

FATHER, FOR ALL THESE

THOUSANDS OF REQUESTS THAT

ARE COMING TO US, FROM ALL

OVER THE WORLD, LORD, WE

ASK NOW IN JESUS' NAME

THAT YOU MIGHT REACH OUT

AND DO A MIRACLE.

WE PRAY FOR HEALING.

WE PRAY FOR PEACE.

WE PRAY FOR DELIVERANCE.

WE PRAY FOR BLESSING.

TERRY, YOU'VE GOT

SOMETHING?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE BEEN

GIVEN -- SORT OF A

MODERATE DIAGNOSIS OF

PANCREATIC PROBLEMS, BUT

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

YOU'RE MADE WHOLE, AND

YOU'LL NOT HAVE TROUBLE

ANYMORE.

Pat: THERE IS A LADY,

I'VE HEARD, THAT HAS STAGE

FOUR CANCER.

SEVERAL MONTHS TO LIVE.

GOD ALMIGHTY IS IN CHARGE

OF CANCER.

AND WE SPEAK THE WORD

AGAINST CANCER.

WE SPEAK AGAINST WASTING

CANCER.

WE SPEAK THAT THE IMMUNE

SYSTEM WILL TURN ON KILL

THE CANCER.

AND THAT THERE MIGHT BE

HEALING IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

COLLAPSED LUNG.

AND THE STRANGENESS ABOUT

YOUR CONDITION IS IT WON'T

STAY INFLATED.

BUT GOD IS TURNING THAT

AROUND RIGHT NOW, AS

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO BREATHE

CLEANLY AND WHOLLY AND YOU

WON'T HAVE ANYMORE

TROUBLE.

Pat: GOD, SEND

REVIVAL.

SEND REVIVAL TO THIS

STATION.

SEND REVIVAL, WE PRAY, IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

GIVE US A CALL, WHEREVER

YOU ARE.

WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

WE WANT YOUR PRAYER

REQUESTS.

IF YOU HAVEN'T SENT THEM

IN, DO SO.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

SO CALL RIGHT NOW.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

AMERICAS MOST INFLUENTIAL

LATINO EVANGELICAL LEADER.

WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE

WORLD.

WE ARE A CITY ON THE HILL.

WE ARE PEOPLE OF THE WORD.

WE ARE SALT AND LIGHT.

Terry: REVEREND

SAMUEL RODRIGUEZ JOINS US

LIVE.

THAT'S JUST AHEAD.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CAN MEMBERS OF THE

MILITARY DISPLAY BIBLE

VERSES IN THE WORKPLACE?

THAT'S THE QUESTION BEFORE

THE MILITARY'S HIGHEST

COURT.

THE CASE REVOLVES AROUND

MARINE LANCE CORPORAL

MONICA STERLING.

SHE WAS DEMOTED,

COURT-MARTIALED, AND

DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED

AFTER REFUSING TO REMOVE A

BIBLE VERSE SHE POSTED AT

HER DESK IN 2013.

HER ATTORNEYS HAVE

APPEALED.

THEY ARGUE IT WAS A

VIOLATION OF HER RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

HER LEGAL TEAM CALLS THIS

A LANDMARK CASE THAT COULD

SET A PRECEDENT FOR

MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN FOR

DECADE.

THE SCRIPTURE POSTED ON

STERLING'S COMPUTER AND

DESK WAS FROM ISAIAH 54

WHICH READS: "NO WEAPON

FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL

PROSPER."

A CHRISTIAN STUDENT GROUP

IS BEING TOLD THEY NEED A

PERMIT BEFORE THEY CAN

TALK ABOUT JESUS ON THE

CAMPUS OF NORTH CAROLINA

STATE UNIVERSITY.

SO THEY FILED A LAWSUIT

OVER THE UNIVERSITY'S

POLICY ON STUDENT SPEECH.

GRACE CHRISTIAN LIFE SAYS

THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE TO GET

A PERMIT TO HAND OUT

FLIERS AND TALK TO

STUDENTS ABOUT JESUS.

THE RALEIGH NEWS AND

OBSERVER REPORTS THAT THE

GROUP ALSO SAYS STUDENTS

FROM OTHER ORGANIZATIONS

HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HAND OUT

LITERATURE AND TALK TO

STUDENTS WITHOUT A PERMIT.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: AS CHRISTIANS,

WE KNOW WE'RE SUPPOSED TO

BE SALT AND LIGHT IN OUR

TROUBLED WORLD, BUT

PRACTICALLY, HOW DO WE DO

THAT?

THAT'S THE SUBJECT OF A

NEW BOOK BY A MAN WHO IS

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

NATIONAL HISPANIC

LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE.

AN INTERNATIONAL

ORGANIZATION OF MORE THAN

500,000 EVANGELICAL

CHURCHES.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: REVEREND

SAMUEL RODRIGUEZ HAS BEEN

CALLED THE LEADER OF THE

LATINO EVANGELICAL

MOVEMENT.

HE DESCRIBES HIMSELF AS A

BLEND OF BILLY GRAHAM AND

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.,

WITH SALSA ON TOP.

AND HE IS THE PASTOR OF

NEW SEASONS CHRISTIAN

WORSHIP CENTER IN

SACRAMENTO.

WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE

WORLD.

WE ARE A CITY ON A HILL.

WE ARE PEOPLE OF THE WORD.

WE ARE SALT AND LIGHT.

Reporter: IN HIS BOOK

"BE LIGHT," REVEREND

RODRIGUEZ USES THE ANALOGY

OF SPIRITUAL LIGHT TO

DELIVER A MESSAGE OF HOPE

FOR A DARKENED WORLD.

[CHEERING]

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB"

REVEREND SAMUEL RODRIGUEZ.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Terry: YOUR BOOK IS

SO TIMELY.

WE LIVE IN AN AGE THAT I

THINK ALMOST DAILY YOU

HEAR SOMEONE LAMENTING THE

DARKNESS, IF YOU WILL, OF

THE TIME THAT WE LIVE IN.

BUT YOU SAY THE DARKER

THINGS GET, THE BRIGHTER

THE LIGHT.

INDEED.

SOME HAVE ARGUED WE LIVE

IN THE DARKEST HOUR.

BUT WHAT ARE WE GOING TO

DO WITH THIS ENERGY?

ARE WERE YOU GOING TO WE GOING TO SPEND OU R

TIME COMPLAINING AND

CURSING THE DARKNESS?

WHY NOT ALLOCATE ALL OF

OUR ENERGY THAT YOU ARE

THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

INSTEAD OF CURSING THE

WHINING ABOUT THE

DARKNESS.

WHY NOT TURN ON THE LIGHT?

THIS BOOK IS A CLARION

CALL.

DON'T DRINK THE KOOL-AID.

THERE IS LIGHT INSIDE OF

US.

AND THERE IS THE ATONING

WORK OF JESUS CHRIST.

Terry: AND THERE IS A

MANDATE FOR US IN THIS

HOUR.

IN SOME WAYS WE COULD SAY

WE'RE LIVING IN THE MOST

EXCITING TIME BECAUSE OF

THE OPPORTUNITY.

THERE ARE THINGS THAT

GUIDE ME TO BE LIGHT EVERY

DAY.

I CALL IT A PROPHETIC RULE

BREAK.

ONE, TODAY'S COMPLACENCEY

IS TOMORROW'S ACTIVITY.

AND THERE IS NO SUCH

ANIMAL AS COMFORTABLE

CHRISTIANITY.

NUMBER FOUR, WE SHOULD

NEVER SACRIFICE TRUTH ON

THE ALTER OF POLITICAL

EXPEDIENCY.

AND NUMBER FIVE -- AND I

ADHERE TO THE PRAYER OF

JOHN IN THE BOOK OF

REVELATION, COME, LORD

JESUS, COME, BUT WHILE THE

WORLD IS WAITING FOR JESUS

TO COME DOWN, JESUS IS

WAITING FOR THE CHURCH TO

STAND UP.

THIS IS THE QUINTESSENTIAL

HOUR TO BE LIGHT IN THE

DARKNESS.

AND EVERY TIME LIGHT

STANDS NEXT TO DARKNESS,

LIGHT ALWAYS WINS.

Terry: YOU TALK ABOUT

SOME OF THE UNIQUE

PROPERTIES OF LIGHT AND

COMPARE THEM OR USE THEM

TO SHOW US SOME OF THE

THINGS WE CAN BE AND

SHOULD BE.

EVERYTHING FROM THE

PRINCIPLE -- ALL OF THE

RULES, REFRACTION,

REFLECTION -- I DISCUSS

THE COMPONENT OF WE EMIT

WHAT WE ABSORB.

WE CAN ONLY EMIT WHAT WE

ABSORB.

WHAT ARE WE ABSORBING?

IF WE'RE ABSORBING TOXIC

RELATIONSHIPS AND IDEAS

AND AN ATMOSPHERE THAT IS

NOT CONDUCIVE TO RIGHTEOUS

LIVING, WE'RE GOING TO

EMIT THAT.

IT BEHOOVES US TO CLEAR UP

AND DETOX OUR ATMOSPHERE,

OUR RELATIONSHIPS, OUR

LANGUAGE, WHO IS SPEAKING

INTO US.

SURROUND YOUR LIFE NOT

WITH PEOPLE WHO SPEAK

ABOUT YOU, BUT PEOPLE THAT

SPEAK INTO YOU.

IT IS THAT SORT OF CLARION

CALL.

AND WHEN THE REFO REFRACTION,

WHEN LIGHT HITS AN

OBSTACLE, THE BENDS.

WHEN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST

IS IN YOU, IT IS NEVER THE

END OF THE LIGHT.

IT WILL BEND.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,

THAT LIGHT WILL REACH ITS

PURPOSE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Terry: YOU SAY, ALSO,

THAT BECAUSE OF THE CALL

ON OUR LIVES AT THIS TIME

AS BELIEVERS, THAT WE NEED

TO SELF-EXAMINE.

I WONDER, AS I LISTEN TO

YOU TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE

THINGS OUT THERE IN THE

WORLD THAT ARE

CHALLENGING, IF WE'RE

DANCING WITH THE DEVIL A

LITTLE BIT BUT CALLING

OURSELVES FOLLOWERS OF

CHRIST.

THERE IS LIGHT AND

DARKNESS.

TWO OBJECTS CANNOT OCCUPY

THE SAME SPACE.

THE PROPHETIC AND

NON-PROPHETIC CANNOT

OCCUPY THE SAME SPACE.

WE CAN'T COMPROMISE.

WE CAN'T PERMIT DARK

AREAS.

WE CAN'T SELL OUT THE

LIGHT FOR THE PURPOSE OF

PLEASING THE GREATER

CULTURE.

THE CULTURE DOES NOT

DEFINE ME.

ONE THING COMING OUT OF

MATTHEW 5, YOU ARE THE

LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

THERE IS DEFINITION COMING

FROM CHRIST.

YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE

WORLD.

ARE WE DEFINED BY CULTURE?

POLITICS?

ARE WE DEFINED BY THIS

GENERATION'S SORT OF WORLD

VIEW?

WE'RE DEFINED BY THE WORD

OF GOD, BY THE SPIRIT OF

GOD, BY THE WORK OF JESUS

CHRIST IN OUR LIVES.

AND WE CAN NEVER

COMPROMISE TRUTH ON THE

ALTER OF EXPEDIENCY.

Terry: IN THE LAST

STORY, YOU HEARD THAT

WOMAN WHO HAD THIS TRAGIC

ACCIDENT TALK ABOUT THE

FACT THEY HAD THIS PASSIVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST

BEFORE AND THEN TRAGEDY

HIT, AND BOOM, THEY CAME

BACK TO THE TRUTH OF THE

ROCK THEY STOOD ON.

ON OCCASION, IT TAKES

GREAT DARKNESS -- THIS

WILL START A BIT CRUDE,

BUT IT TAKES THE

PERSECUTION OF OUR

CHRISTIAN WORLD VIEW -- IT

TAKES THESE SORT OF

MOMENTS TO WAKE UP THE

CHURCH.

WE DO LIVE IN THE DARKEST

HOUR, BUT IT IS THE GREAT

HOUR TO BE LIGHT.

ONLY IF WE LET GO OF

COMFORTABLE CHRISTIANITY.

ONLY IF WE LET GO OF THE

SPIRIT OF COMPLACENCY MANY

ANANDIF WE ACT LIKE AN ELIJAH,

AND FUNCTION WITH THE

MANTEL AND LIGHT OF THE

GLORY OF CHRIST.

Terry: WE HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND WHO WE BELONG

TO.

WHERE DO YOU BEGIN THAT

PROCESS?

MAYBE YOU'RE PASSIVE

ENOUGH THAT YOU'RE NOT

FILLED WITH THAT

ENTHUSIASM TO ACCOMPLISH

WHAT GOD SET TO US, WHERE

DO WE START?

UNDERSTAND THAT CHRIST

DEFINES YOU.

YOU'RE NOT EVEN DEFINED BY

WHAT YOU DO FOR GOD.

YOU'RE DEFINED BY GOD

ALREADY DID FOR YOU.

CHRIST DEFINES YOU.

YOU'RE DEFINED BY HIS

FORGIVENESS.

IT IS EMBRACING THAT FACT

THAT JESUS CHRIST MAKES

YOU LIGHT BECAUSE HE IS

THE LIGHT.

AND THE MOMENT YOU EMBRACE

THAT REALITY, YOU ARE FREE

TO PUSH BACK DARKNESS.

AGAIN, WE CHANNEL SO MUCH

ENERGY IN COMPLAINING

ABOUT THE THINGS AROUND

US, THE DARKNESS IN OUR

LIVES, IN OUR THOUGHTS AND

OUR FAMILIES, WITH OUR

CHILDREN, AND THERE IS

GREATER POWER IN TURNING

ON THE LIGHT.

THAT IS THROUGH THE FAITH

AND THE FAITH AND THE

GLORY OF JESUS CHRIST.

IT WORKS.

EVERY TIME LIGHT GETS

TURNED ON, DARKNESS FLEES.

TEST IT, IT REALLY WORKS.

Terry: YOU'RE BOOK IS

A CLARION CALL TO ALL OF

US AS BELIEVERS TO

SELF-EXAMINE, COME HOME TO

THE HEART OF GOD, AND THEN

REFLECT THE LIGHT IN US

OUT TO THE WORLD AROUND

US.

IT IS SUCH A GOOD BOOK.

IT IS CALLED "BE LIGHT."

IT IS SO TIMELY FOR THE

DAY WE LIVE IN.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD, AND YOU'LL

KNOW IT BECAUSE REVEREND

RODRIGUEZ IS ON THE COVER.

AND HE IS OUR GUEST

SPEAKER IN OUR WEEK OF

CHAPEL, AND YOU'RE IN FOR

A SPECIAL EVENT.

LOG ON TO cbn.com AT

NOON EASTERN TIME.

YOU ALWAYS BRING A

WONDERFUL WORD.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Terry: COMING UP,

WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

BEN ASKS, "IS IT TOO LATE

AFTER YOU DIE TO CONFESS

JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR TO

HIS FACE?"

WE'LL HEAR WHAT PAT HAS TO

SAY ABOUT THAT WHEN WE

"BRING IT ON."

Terry: TIME TO "BRING

IT ON" WITH SOME OF THE

E-MAIL QUESTIONS THAT

YOU'VE SENT IN.

THE FIRST ONE COMES FROM

DEB, WHO SAYS, "IS IT TOO

LATE, AFTER YOU DIE, TO

CONFESS JESUS AS YOUR

SAVIOR TO HIS FACE."

I'M WORRIED ABOUT SOMEONE

WHO SAYS THEY JUST DON'T

KNOW IF HE IS REAL OR NOT.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

IT IS APPOINTED IN A MAN

ONCE TO DIE, AND AFTER

THAT THE JUDGMENT.

I HATE TO TELL YOU, BUT

AFTER YOU DIE, IT'S ALL

OVER.

SO YOU'VE LEFT THIS LIFE,

AND YOU'VE HAD 70 YEARS,

80 YEARS -- WHATEVER

YOU'VE GOT.

DURING THAT TIM TIME YOU'VE

GOT PLENTY OF TIME TO SAY

YES TO JESUS.

THEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT

JUDGMENT.

Terry: "IS IT

APPROPRIATE TO ADDRESS

SATAN OR THE DEVIL IN THE

COURSE OF PRAYERS.

FOR THOSE OF US WHO DO SO,

IS IT NOT DISRESPECTFUL TO

GOD?

IS IT WRONG TO TAKE TIME

TO ADDRESS SATAN IN THE

COURSE OF SUCH A SERIOUS

TIME WITH GOD?"

Pat: I THINK PEOPLE

MAKE THINGS SO

COMPLICATED.

YOU'RE DEALING WITH A

DEMON, AND YOU SAY TO THAT

DEMON, GET OUT.

WELL, THAT'S NOT A PRAYER.

THAT'S AN ORDER.

Terry: EXACTLY.

Pat: YOU'RE NOT

BEGGING HIM TO GET OUT.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE

GONE.

I THINK THE PRAYER, I BIND

YOU SATAN AND THE FORCES

OF EVIL -- THAT IS NOT A

PRAYER.

THAT IS A COMMAND.

LIKE A COME OUT COMMAND.

Terry: THIS IS JUDY

WHO SAYS, "I JUST FOUND

OUT THE LEADERSHIP IN MY

CHURCH BELIEVES THAT GOD

HAS SELECTED OR CALLED

SOME TO BE SAVED, AND SOME

ARE NOT.

I DON'T GET THIS.

I THOUGHT JESUS CAME FOR

ALL.

IF HE ONLY SELECTS SOME,

WHAT WOULD BE THE USE OF

PREACHING THE GOSPEL?"

Pat: YOU HAVE TOUCHED

ON ONE OF THE FIGHTS THAT

HAS BEEN GOING ON IN THE

CHURCH FOREVER.

THAT IS EXTREME CALVANISM.

CALVANISM IS VERY STRICT.

I THINK EXTREME CALVANISM

IS IN ERROR.

IT IS NOT TRUE.

GOD WANTS EVERYBODY TO BE

SAVED AND ALL TO COME TO

THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE

TRUTH.

THAT'S WHAT HE SAYS.

THEREFORE WE ARE HERE TO

PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL.

IF YOU HAVE A BOUND WILL

AND YOU CAN'T ACCEPT THE

LORD ACCEPT THROUGH HIS

GRACE, THEN WE'RE IN

ERROR.

AND I THINK THAT'S IN

ERROR.

SO YOU BELONG TO A CHURCH

THAT IS EXTREME CALVANIST.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT,

LEAVE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM JAMES 5:

"AND THE PRAYER OF FAITH

WILL SAVE THE SICK, AND

THE LORD WILL RAISE HIM

UP."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
