The 700 Club - May 3, 2016

A newborn’s parent’s are told to prepare for the infants funeral. Plus, an identity as one of baseball’s premier pitchers was great until Barry Zito began to underperform expectations. Read Transcript


Efrem: COMING UP...

WE NEED TO GET HIM DOWN

TO THE NIC CUE.

Efrem: A BABY IS BORN

WITH HIR HIS HEART ON THE

WRONG SIDE OF HIS BODY.

WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT

WE'RE DEALING WITH.

Efrem: THE

PROGNOSIS --

HE IS NOT GOING TO MAKE

IT.

Efrem: -- AND THE

PRAYERS.

ALL YOU CAN SAY IS

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU YOU, LORD.

Efrem: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT, BUT

YOU'RE LIFE IS AT RISK.

YOU KNOW, 16,000 AMERICANS

DIE EVERY YEAR, AND

100,000 GO TO HOSPITALS

FOR EMERGENCIES, KIDNEY

FAILURE, ULCERS, AND SO

FORTH.

WHAT'S CAUSING IT?

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS YOU

BUY OVER THE COUNTER

WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION.

WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU

ABOUT IT.

IT MIGHT SAVE YOUR LIFE.

> AND IT IS LIKE DO OR

DIE FOR TED CRUZ IN

INDIANA.

IF IT DOESN'T WIN TODAY,

IT COULD MEAN GAME OVER

FOR THE TEXAS SENATOR.

AS A LOSS WOULD BASICALLY

GUARANTEE DONALD TRUMP THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINATION.

Terry: GOING INTO THE

POLLS, IT SHOWS TRUMP WITH

A CLEAR LEAD.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Caitlin: CONFLICT ON

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL IS AS

INTENSE AS EVER.

EACH CANDIDATE ENDING

THEIR CAMPAIGN IN INDIANA

WITH ATTACKS AGAINST THE

OTHER.

A DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER

EVEN FACING OFF WITH TED

CRUZ, DEMANDING HE BOW

OUT.

KASICH DROPS OUT, IT'S

YOUR TURN.

TIME TO DROP OUT.

Caitlin: IF TRUMP

WINS BIG IN INDIANA, HE'LL

JUST NEED 40% OF THE

REMAINING DELEGATES TO

LOCK AND THE REPUBLICAN

NOMINATION.

AND CRUZ CAN'T WIN WITHOUT

A CONTESTED CONVENTION.

ACCORDING TO REAL CLEAR

POLITICS, AN AVERAGE OF

DIFFERENT POLLS SHOWS

TRUMP UP BY NINE POINTS,

BY A MARGIN OF 42% TO 33%.

BUT CRUZ SAYS HE ISN'T

GIVING UP.

THE TEXAS SENATOR VOWING

TO COMPETE UNTIL THE END

AGAINST DONALD TRUMP.

THERE IS A CHOICE, ABAY

BASIC CHOICE, THAT IND IND

HAINDIANAHAS AND THE WHOLE COUNTRY

HAS.

DO WE SUPPORT A CAMPAIGN

THAT IS BASED ON YELLING

AND SCREAMING AND CURSING

AND INSULTS, THAT IS BASED

ON DIVIDING AMERICANS, OR

DO WE SUPPORT A CAMPAIGN

AS A POSITIVE, OPTMISTIC,

FORWARD-MOVING,

CONSERVATIVE CAMPAIGN?

Caitlin: BER BERNIE

SANDERS IS IN A CLOSE RACE

WITH CLINTON IN IND.

INDIANA.

A VICTORY FOR SANDERS IN

INDIANA WOULD BE AN

EMBARRASSMENT FOR CLINTON

BUT WOULD DO LITTLE TO

MAKE MUCH OF A DENT IN HER

DELEGATE LEAD.

SHE IS CURRENTLY ONLY 200

DELEGATES SHORT OF

CLINCHING THE NOMINATION.

SHE IS ALREADY LOOKING

AHEAD ON THE NEXT PRIMARY

IN WEST VIRGINIA.

FOR ALL OF THE OTHER

POLITICAL PLAYERS, ALL

EYES ARE ON INDIANA.

A TRUMP WIN TODAY

POTENTIALLY SHIFTING THE

FOCUS FROM PRIMARY SEASON

TO THE NOVEMBER GENERAL

ELECTION.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I, FOR ONE, HOPE

THE REPUBLICANS WILL

SOLIDIFY AROUND THEIR

LEADER AND GET ON WITH

LIFE.

I'M SO SICK OF THIS.

AND I'M TIRED OF THE

SNIPING THAT GOES ON.

I THINK WE'VE HAD ENOUGH

OF IT.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'VE

PICKED A WINNER.

THE PEOPLE HAVE CHOSEN A

WINNER.

AND THE AMOUNT OF

VOTING -- THE NUMBER OF

VOTES CAST FOR DONALD

TRUMP HAS EXCEEDED

ANYTHING POSSIBLY IN

REPUBLICAN HISTORY.

SO HE CAN'T SAY THAT HE'S

SORT OF AN UNUSUAL FREAKY

CANDIDATE.

HE'S GOTTEN THE VOTES OF

THE PEOPLE IN STATE AFTER

STATE AFTER STATE.

THE EAST COAST, NEW

ENGLAND, NEW YORK, AND

THROUGHOUT THE MIDWEST,

AND IN THE

WE DON'T NEED THIS

ANYMORE.

WHOEVER THE NEXT PRESIDENT

IS, HE OR SHE IS GOING TO

HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE OUT

OF CONTROL FEDERAL

SPENDING IN WASHINGTON.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THIS

ALARMING STORY.

John: PAT, THE

NATIONAL DEBT HAS SHOT UP

SHARPLY IN THE LAST

SEVERAL MONTHS, SINCE

PRESIDENT OBAMA SIGNED A

BUDGET DEAL WITH SENATE

MAJORITY LEADER MITCHELL

McCONNELL AND JOHN

BOEHNER.

THE THE DEBT HAS GONE UP

BY MORE THAN A TRILLION

DOLLARS FROM THE END OF

OCTOBER LAST YEAR FROM A

LITTLE OVER $18 TRILLION

BACK THEN TO JUST OVER

$19 TRILLION AT THE END OF

APRIL.

ALTHOUGH THE ANNUAL

FEDERAL DEFICIT HAS BEEN

FALLING IN RECENT YEARS,

IT IS EXPECTED TO START

RISING AGAIN, AND IT WOULD

SHOOT UP DRAMATICALLY

HIGHER IF OR WHEN INTEREST

RATES GO UP AGAIN AS WELL.

> WELL, IF YOU'RE

PLANNING ON FLYING THIS

SUMMER, YOU HAD ALSO HAVE

BETTER PLANNED ON WAITING

IN SOME LENGTHEN LINES.

THE SECURITY LINES ARE

GETTING LONGER.

WAITING TIMES COULD REACH

EPIDEMIC LEVELS WHEN AIR

TRAVEL PEAKS THIS SUMMER,

DUE TO TIGHTER BUDGETS,

NEW PROCEDURES AT CHECK

POINTS, AND A GROWING

NUMBER OF TRAVELLERS.

SOME PASSENGERS HAVE

ALREADY REPORTED LINES

THAT STRETCH TO THE CURB

OR DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE

AIRPORT.

PAT?

Pat: I TOLD YOU,

T.S.A. STANDS FOR

THOUSANDS STANDING AROUND.

IT IS THE MOST INCOMPETENT

AGENCY WE HAVE EVER SEEN.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

TAKES OVER SOMETHING.

THEY TAKE OVER YOUR

HEALTH, AND THEY SCREW IT

UP.

THEY TAKE OVER THE MANNING

OF THESE CHECK POINTS AND

THEY SCREW IT UP.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WITH

THE FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY.

THEY LO LOAD A LOT OF

INCOMPETENT PEOPLE IN THE

JOBS AND PUT A LOT OF

RULES ON THEM TO LIVE BY.

THE ISRAELIS HAVE GOT IT

RIGHT.

THEY PRE-SCREEN PEOPLE AND

KNOW POTENTIAL TERRORISTS

BEFORE THEY EVER SHOW UP

AT THE AIRPORT.

WHEN THEY COME THROUGH,

THEY CAN DO IT VERY, VERY

QUICKLY.

HERE THE THING TAKES

FOREVER AND EVER.

PEOPLE ARE HAVING TO WAIT

AS LONG AS THREE OR FOUR

HOURS TO GET ON AN

AIRPLANE, AND THEY'RE

MISSING HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF FLIGHTS

BECAUSE OF IT.

IT IS TURNING THIS WHOLE

AIR TRANSPORTATION INTO AN

UTTER CHAOS.

MAYBE IF THEY HIRED A

PRIVATE AGENCY AND TURNED

IT OVER TO THE AGENCY,

THEY COULD DO SOMETHING

BETTER.

BUT THEY CERTAINLY DON'T

DO IT NOW.

JOHN?

John: A GOVERNMENT

PANEL RECENTLY RECOMMENDED

SOME PEOPLE TAKE AN

ASPIRIN ADAY TO HELP

PREVENT CARDIOVASCULAR

DISEASE AND COLON CANCER.

AS LORIE JOHNSON REPORTS,

FOR SOME PEOPLE THAT MAY

DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD.

Lorie: ROBERT CARNS

IS FINE NOW, BUT NOT LONG

AGO, HE PANICKED WHEN HE

THOUGHT HE WAS HAVING A

HEART ATTACK BECAUSE HIS

FAMILY NEEDS HIM.

THE CHEST PAINS WERE

PRETTY BAD AND SCARY.

Lorie: AS IT TURNS

OUT, HE WASN'T HAVING A

HEART ATTACK.

HIS CHEST PAINS WERE

BROUGHT ON BY TAKING AN

OVER-THE-COUNTER

MEDICATION HE PICKED UP AT

THE DRUG STORY FOR SINUS

PROBLEMS.

IT SURPRISED ME.

I HAD NO CLUE.

Lorie: THE TYPE OF

PAIN RELIEVER THAT ROBERT

TOOK IS CALL AN NSADE.

NSAID.

THOSE ARE IBUPROFENS AND

ASPIRINS.

NSAIDS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR

16,000 DEATHS EACH YEAR.

AND THINGS LIKE KIDNEY

FAILURE, HEART ATTACKS,

STROKES, AND ULCERS.

THE PEOPLE AT THE

GREATEST RISK OF THOSE WHO

MAY BE TAKING OTHER

MEDICATIONS THAT COULD

INTERFERE WITH THE

STOMACH.

SAY SOMEONE WHO IS ON A

BLOOD-THINNING MEDICINE,

PEOPLE ON STEROIDS FOR

OTHER DISEASES, AND PEOPLE

WHO ARE HOSPITALIZED OR

HAVE OTHER STRESSES ON

THEIR STOMACHS.

Lorie: HE SAYS ROBERT

WAS WISE TO SEEK HELP

RIGHT AWAY, AND ADVISES

EVERYONE TO TALK TO THEIR

DOCTOR ABOUT ALL

MEDICATIONS THEY'RE

TAKING, EVEN OVER THE

COUNTER ONES.

DISCUSS HOW MUCH YOU'RE

TAKING AND ANY UNUSUAL

SYMPTOMS.

IF YOU DEVELOP A CHANGE

IN THE COLOR OF YOUR

STOOL, BLACK ARE DARK, YOU

HAVE VOMITING AND YOU'RE

THROWING UP STUFF THAT

LOOKS LIKE COFFEE, EVEN IN

THE ABSENCE OF PAIN, THIS

COULD BE A SIGN OF

INTESTINAL BLEEDING, AND

STOP THAT MEDICATION AND

NOTIFY YOUR DOCTOR RIGHT

AWAY.

Lorie: THE GOOD NEWS

IS MANY OF US CAN REDUCE

PAIN A DIFFERENT WAY,

WITHOUT TAKING AN NSAID.

BY SWITCHING TO AN

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET.

ONE THAT IS LOW IN SUGAR,

WHITE CARBOHYDRATES, LIKE

BREAD AND PASTA, AND

TRANS-FATS, INDUSTRIALIZED

VEGETABLE OILS, AND

CHEMICAL FOOD ADDITIVES.

THESE HIGHLY INFLAMMATORY

ITEMS ARE FOUND IN AB

ABUNDANCE IN PROCESSED

FOODS.

ON THE OTHER HAND,

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS

ARE ONES THAT ARE IN THEIR

ORIGINAL STATE.

INCLUDING UNREFINED FATS,

LIKE FISH OIL, COCONUT

OIL, AND OLIVE OIL, RAW

NUTS, AVOCADOS, AND LOTS

OF COLORFUL FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

John: PAT, THAT

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET

SOUNDS LIKE THEY TORE A

PAGE FROM YOUR BOOK.

Pat: DO YOU EVER TAKE

ANY OF THOSE THINGS?

Lorie: I DON'T.

Pat: YOU DON'T TAKE

IBUPROFEN?

Lorie: I DON'T.

Pat: YOU KNOW THAT TV

COMMERCIAL WITH THE TRUCK

DRIVER WHO HAS SORE KNEES,

AND HE SAYS YOU CAN'T TAKE

MY ALEVE.

AND THIS IS NAPROSYN.

AND I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I

DID.

I WAS HURTING IN MY KNEE

OR SHOULDER, AND I WAS

TAKING A BLOOD THINNER FOR

MY HEART.

AND IT WAS CALLED XERALTO.

AND I SAID, OKAY, I'LL

JUST TAKE A COUPLE OF

THESE THINGS.

AND THAT DID IT.

> Terry: THE TWO

TOGETHER, YEAH.

Pat: THE IRON IN MY

BLOOD WAS SUPPOSED TO BE

BETWEEN 15 PARTS AND 50

PARTS.

AND MINE WAS COMING IN AT

NINE.

I WAS BLEEDING LIKE CRAZY

AND WASN'T EVEN AWARE OF

IT.

LOOK AT THESE THINGS.

THEY ADVERTISE -- YOU

CAN'T TAKE MY ALEVE.

THIS IS BRILLIANT

ADVERTISING.

THIS IS NAPROSYN, THIS IS

VERY STRONG.

THIS IS MOTRIN.

THIS IS IBUPROFEN.

NOLAN RYAN, THE GREAT

PITCHER, HE WAS ALWAYS

USING ADVIL AND MOTRIN.

AND THESE GUYS WERE

SAYING, WELL, I CAN PITCH

FOREVER BECAUSE I'M TAKING

MOTRIN OR ADVIL OR WHAT

HAVE YOU.

Terry: I THINK A LOT

OF PEOPLE TAKE THOSE

THINGS DAILY WHEN THEY

HAVE CONSISTENT, EXTREME

PAIN IN A JOINT.

Pat: BEFORE I STARTED

LIFTING WEIGHTS, I WOULD

TAKE EXCEDRIN, WHEN YOU

START PUSHING -- YOU DON'T

WANT TO PUSH THROUGH PAIN,

SO IT TAKES CARE OF THE

PAIN.

THAT EATS YOUR STOMACH UP,

AND IT KILLS PEOPLE.

16,000 DEATHS AND 100,000

PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITAL

BECAUSE OF THESE THINGS.

FOLKS, IT IS DANGEROUS,

ESPECIALLY ALEVE, WHICH IS

NAPROSYN.

THAT IS VERY POWERFUL

STUFF.

AND A COUPLE OF THESE ARE

LIKE 500 MILLIGRAMS --

Terry: AND SOMETIMES

PEOPLE DON'T THINK, AS

YOU'RE SAYING, ABOUT THE

OTHER THINGS YOU'RE

TAKING.

ALMOST EVERYTHING

INTERACTS WITH EACH OTHER.

Pat: EVEN IF YOU

DON'T.

A COUPLE OF THESE ASPIRIN

WILL DO THE SAME THING, IT

WILL EAT YOUR STOMACH UP.

Terry: A LOT OF

PEOPLE ARE DOING THAT TO

PREVENT A HEART ATTACK.

Pat: FOLKS, TAKE IT

FROM ONE WHO KNOWS.

THEY'VE GOT ME ON ONE OF

THOSE -- FOR A COUPLE OF

TIMES, HE HAD AN INFUSION

WHERE HE WAS PUMPING IRON

INTO MY BLOOD --

Terry: TRYING TO

CORRECT THE LOSS.

Pat: BECAUSE OF THAT

STUFF IT IS BLEEDING.

YOUR INSIDES ARE BLEEDING

AND YOU'RE NOT EVEN AWARE

OF IT.

DON'T TAKE AWAY MY

ALEVE --

Terry: TAKE IT AWAY.

Pat: YEAH.

Terry: BE CAREFUL

WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR

MOUTH.

Pat: BE CAREFUL OF

WHAT YOU WATCH ON

TELEVISION AND THEY DON'T

WARN YOU ABOUT IT.

16,000 DEATHS AND I DON'T

WANT YOU TO BE ONE OF

THEM.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, IT

HAS BEEN CALLED A SECOND

HEAVEN AND IT IS ONE OF

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES

ON EARTH.

BUT IT HASN'T BEEN WITHOUT

ITS SHARE OF TURMOIL.

THERE HAVE BEEN

NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS TO FORCE

US TO GIVE UP OUR FAITH,

BUT WE NEVER BACK DOWN.

Terry: WATCH THE

HISTORY COME ALIVE IN THE

SMALL NATION OF GEORGIA,

WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: WELL, GEORGIA,

THAT'S THE PLACE DOWN

SOUTH WHERE THEY HAVE

PEACHES AND SO FORTH,

ISN'T IT?

NO, THAT'S ANOTHER PLACE.

THERE IS ANOTHER PLACE

THAT YOU PROBABLY HAVE

NEVER HEARD ABOUT.

BUT GEORGE THOMAS

TRAVELLED 6,000 MILES TO A

TINY NATION CALLED

GEORGIA, AN ANCIENT LAND

WHERE CULTURE AND

TRADITION AND FAITH IN

JESUS CHRIST RUN VERY

DEEP.

George: IT WAS FAMED

NOVELIST JOHN STEINBECK

WHO REFERED TO THIS LAND

AS A KIND OF SECOND

HEAVEN, AND IT IS EASY TO

SEE WHY.

ONCE PART OF THE COMMUNIST

EMPIRE, AND OFTEN CALLED

THE RIVIERA OF THE SOVIET

UNION, IT NESTLED BETWEEN

THE CAUCUS' MOUNTAINS AND

THE BLACK SEA.

TURKEY AND ARMENIA FLANK

THE SOUTHERN BORDER.

AZERBAIJAN IS THE EAST.

THIS MAN IS A GEORGIAN

BUSINESSMAN.

I COME FROM PERHAPS ONE

OF THE MOST ANCIENT

CULTURES IN THE WORLD.

George: AN ANCIENT

PLACE WHERE PEOPLE SPEAK A

LANGUAGE THAT IS OVER

2,000 YEARS OLD.

THIS MAN SAYS HIS IS A

COUNTRY THAT HAS ALSO

WITNESSED ITS FAIR SHARE

OF TURMOIL.

GEORGIANS GO THROUGH A

LOT.

BECAUSE OF THE

GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION,

MANY ARMIES CROSS THIS

WAY.

George: HISTORY HERE

IS MEASURED IN MILLENNIA,

NOT CENTURIES.

AND YOUR COUNTRY HAS BEEN

THE PLAYGROUND FOR

NUMEROUS EMPIRES.

THE OTTOMANS, THE

BIZANTINE EMPIRES, THE

ROMANS AND THE RUSSIANS.

George: IN THE

CAPITAL CITY THE ANCIENT

AND THE MODERN MIX

SEAMLESSLY TO CREATE A

BEAUTIFUL PORTRAIT OF

GEORGIA'S RICH CULTURE AND

TRADITION.

ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO

TAKE IN THE SIGHTS AND

SOUNDS OF TABLISI IS TO

TAKE ONE OF THESE TROLLIES

UP THE MOUNTAIN.

IN FILMING THESE SCENES OF

TIBILISI, AND STUNNING

COUNTRYSIDE LANDSCAPES,

GEORGIAN CAMERAMAN GORGI

SAID IT BEST.

EVERY TIME I TRAVEL IN

DIFFERENT REGIONS OF MY

COUNTRY, I FEEL LIKE I'M

TRAVELLING THROUGH

THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF

HISTORY.

GEORGIANS ARE LEGENDARY

FOR THEIR HOSPITALITY.

THEY BELIEVE GUESTS COME

FROM GOD, AND AS SUCH ARE

TREATED WITH HONOR.

THEIR FOOD IS SIMPLY OUT

OF THIS WORLD.

FOR EXAMPLE, YOU HAVE THIS

AMAZING DISH.

IT'S CALLED HINGCALI, AND

THE ALL FAMOUS HACHAPURI.

FRIENDSHIP IS HIGHLY

VALUED IN THIS SOCIETY,

AND FAMILY IS PARAMOUNT.

BUT IF THERE IS ONE THING

MANY GEORGIANS CHERISH

MOST, IT IS THEIR FAITH.

HE SAYS CHRISTIANITY,

ABOVE ALL ELSE, HAS

PROTECTED AND PRESERVED

HIS NATION.

THE REASON GEORGIA

REMAINED WHY IT IS IS

BECAUSE OUR NATION HAS A

PROFOUND FEELING OF

RESPONSIBILITY TO HOLDING

ON TO THE ETERNAL FEATURES

OF OUR NATIONAL CHARACTER,

WHICH, BY ALL MEANS, ARE

ROOTED IN THE CHRISTIAN

CULTURE.

George: GEORGIA IS

ONE OF THE OLDEST

CHRISTIAN COUNTRIES IN THE

WORLD.

ITS CHRISTIAN HERITAGE CAN

BE TRACED HERE TO THE

SMALL TOWN OF USHKITA.

A WOMAN EVANGELIST NAMED

NINA STARTED PREACHING THE

GOSPEL HERE.

WHERE THESE TWO RIVERS

MEET THRAWRK, THERE WAS A BAPTISM.

George: CHRISTIANITY

SPREAD THROUGH THE REST OF

THE COUNTRY, AND IN ABOUT

10 YEARS GAME THE STATE

RELIGION.

FIVE CROSSES, SYMBOLIZING

CHRISTIANITY'S INFLUENCE,

ADORN THE GEORGIAN FLAG.

THE CHURCH HAS PLAYED A

SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THIS

SOCIETY.

ABOUT 80% OF GEORGIANS SAY

THEY BELONG TO THE

ORTHODOX CHURCH.

GEORGIANS HAVE ALWAYS

HAD TO DEFEND THEIR FAITH.

George: THIS MAN IS A

PROMINENT LEADER IN THE

GEORGIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH.

HE SAYS OVER THE

CENTURIES, MANY CHRISTIANS

BECAME MARTYRS FOR

REFUSING TO RENOUNCE THEIR

FAITH.

IN 1226 ALONE, MUSLIM

INVADERS BEHEADED MORE

THAN 100,000 GEORGIAN

CHRISTIANS.

THERE HAVE BEEN

NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS BY IN

VADEININVADING FORCES TO FORCE

US TO GIVE UP OUR FAITH,

BUT WE NEVER BACK DOWN.

George: THIS CURATOR

HAS IN HER COLLECTION RARE

MANUSCRIPTS AND OTHER

DOCUMENTS DOCUMENTING

GEORGIA'S CHRISTIAN

HERITAGE.

TODAY, THE ROLE OF

CHRISTIANITY IS EVEN MORE

SIGNIFICANT AS WE FACE NEW

CHALLENGES.

George: THIS WOMAN

BELIEVES HER COUNTRY

STANDS AT A CROSSROADS,

WITH CENTRAL ASIA, RUSSIA,

EUROPE, AND THE MIDDLE

EAST ALL VYING FOR

CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS

INFLUENCE.

SHE SAYS TINY GEORGIA MUST

ONCE AGAIN STAND TO

PROTECT HER HERITAGE.

I HOPE GEORGIA'S

EXAMPLE OF UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE AND FAITH ARE A

TESTIMONY TO ALL MANKIND.

PEOPLE SHOULD REALIZE THAT

THE ABSENCE OF FAITH IS

DISASTEROUS FOR A NATION.

CHRISTIANITY IS HOW WE

SURVIVED IN THE PAST AND

IT IS HOW WE WILL SURVIVE

IN THE FUTURE.

Gord: GEORGE THOMAS,

IN TH TABILISI, IN THE

REPUBLIC OF GEORGIA.

Pat: WHAT LOVELY

PEOPLE.

Terry: UP NEXT, THEIR

SON WAS DEATHLY ILL AND

THEIR DOCTOR HAD NO GAME

PLAN.

THAT'S WHEN IT HITS YOU

AS A DAD.

Terry: BUT THESE

PARENTS HAD A PLAN, AND IT

JUST MAY HAVE HELPED SAVE

HIS LIFE.

YOU'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENED

WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: WELL, WE WELCOME

YOU.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE

ALL OF YOU WITH US ON THE

PROGRAM.

> ONE IN A MILLION IS

HOW MANY BABIES ARE

AFFECTED WITH ATYPICAL

SIMITAR SYNDROME, WHICH

MEANS A CHILD IS BORN

WITHOUT A HEART AND

LUNG -- IT'S ON THE WRONG

SIDE OF HIS BODY.

WE WERE DEFINITELY

EXCITED.

IT WAS GOING TO BE OUR

SECOND CHILD.

IT WAS GOING TO BE VERY

FUN AND INTERESTING TO ADD

A SON TO THE MIX.

Reporter: ON APRIL 8,

2005, DOUG AND AUDREY

WELCOMED THEIR FIRST SON,

ANDREW, INTO THE WORLD.

IT IS HARD TO DESCRIBE.

IT'S A EUPHORIA, A PEACE

AND COMFORT, AND GREAT,

GREAT EXCITEMENT.

Reporter: SINCE

AUDREY HAD A C-SECTION,

SHE WAS STILL LYING ON THE

TABLE AS NURSES TOOK THE

BABY ASIDE FOR ASSESSMENT.

AFTER A FEW MINUTES, SHE

REALIZED SHE HADN'T HEARD

HIM CRY.

IT TOOK A WHILE FOR THE

CRY TO COME.

BUT THEN WHEN HE DID MAKE

HIS FIRST CRY, IT WAS

ACTUALLY A MUFFLED CRY.

I EVEN SAID, WOW, HIS CRY

SOUNDS REALLY FUNNY.

Reporter: AND NURSES

NOTED THAT THE NEWBORN'S

SKIN WASN'T TURNING PINK,

A SIGN HE WASN'T GETTING

ENOUGH OXYGEN.

THEY PUT HIM IN AN

INCUBATOR, HOPING IT WOULD

HELP.

THEY WHEELED HIM IN THE

INCUBATOR TO ME, BUT THEY

ONLY LET HIM STAY AT MY

SIDE FOR AT LEAST A MINUTE

OR LESS.

THEY DECIDED THEY

NEEDED TO GET HIM DOWN TO

THE NIC UNIT.

Reporter: X-RAYS

REVEALED THAT HIS HEART

WAS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF

HIS CHEST, AND ONE OF HIS

LUNGS WAS UNDER DEVELOPED.

AND FURTHER TESTING SHOWED

EXTREME PRESSURE IN HIS

LUNGS, PREVENTING HIS BODY

TO GET THE OXYGEN IT

NEEDED.

IN THAT MOMENT, IT IS

HARD TO WRAP YOUR MIND

AROUND THE COMPLEXITY OF

THE HEALTH PROBLEMS THAT

HE HAD.

Reporter: THE NEXT

DAY ANDREW WAS TRANSPORTED

TO TEXAS CHILDREN'S

HOSPITAL, WHERE HE WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH A RARE

CONDITION WHERE MAJOR

ORGANS ARE DISPLACED.

IN ANDREW'S CASE, HE HAD

TWO VEINS GOING FROM HIS

LUNGS INTO THE WRONG SIDE

OF HIS HEART, LIMITING THE

FLOW OF OXYGEN.

DR. SHARITA WAS ANDREW

NEONATOLOGIST.

ANY ORGAN CAN BE

AFFECTED AS A RESULT OF

THAT.

HE WAS IN THE GROUP OF

BABIES THAT HAD THE

HIGHEST MORBIDITY OF LIFE.

WE HAD THIS DRAIN OF

SPIRALLING.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT FEW DAYS, ANDREW'S

OXYGEN LEVELS CONTINUED TO

DROP.

AT THAT PARTICULAR

TIME, WE WERE DOING THE

MAXIMUM THERAPY WE COULD

GIVE TO ANDREW.

WE KNEW IN ORDER TO DO

MORE, WE NEEDED TO DO A

CARDIAC CATH OR M.R.I.,

BUT ANDREW WAS SICK, WE

KNEW WE COULDN'T MOVE HIM

TO DO THE TESTS WE NEEDED.

ONE OF THE SURGEONS

SAID WE DON'T HAVE A GAME

PLAN.

SO TO TAKE HIM TO AN

OPERATING ROOM WITHOUT

KNOWING HOW HE IS WIRED,

WE MAY LOSE HIM ON THE

TABLE BECAUSE WE DON'T

KNOW WHAT WE'RE DEALING

WITH.

Reporter: AUDREY

TRIED TO MAKE SENSE OF

WHAT WAS HAPPENING.

WHAT COULD I HAVE DONE

DIFFERENTLY?

HOW COULD I HAVE CAUSED

THIS?

WAS IT NOTHING IN OUR

ENVIRONMENT THAT CAUSED

IT?

THE UNKNOWN IS VERY SCARY.

Reporter: DOUG AND

AUDREY HELD ON BY FAITH

AND ASKED FRIENDS AND

RELATIVES TO PRAY.

WE HAD PEOPLE FROM ALL

OVER THE UNITED STATES

THAT WERE ABLE TO CALL

ACROSS PRAYER CHAINS IN

CHURCHES ACROSS ALL OF THE

DENOMINATIONS.

WHEN YOU REALIZE THERE IS

NOTHING YOU CAN DO BUT

PRAY, THEN THAT'S ALL WE

HAVE TO DO.

Reporter: FOUR DAYS

AFTER ANDREW WAS BORN,

AUDREY AND DOUG RECEIVED

THE NEWS THEY FEARED THE

MOST.

THE DOCTOR CAME OUT

WITH TEARS STREAMING DOWN

HER FACE AND SAID, HE IS

JUST NOT GOING TO MAKE IT

THROUGH THE DAY.

SO...SHE SAID CALL WHOEVER

YOU WANT, FAMILY, BUT HE

PROBABLY WILL NOT MAKE IT

THROUGH THE DAY.

SO THAT'S WHEN IT HITS YOU

AS A DAD.

ALL I COULD DO WAS

INTERNALLY JUST PRAY.

PRAY FOR MY OWN STRENGTH,

PRAY FOR WISDOM, AND PRAY

FOR GUIDANCE.

Reporter: THEN DURING

THE NIGHT, ANDREW'S OXYGEN

LEVELS BEGAN TO STABILIZE.

HE BEGAN TO GRADUALLY

IMPROVE WITHOUT US

CHANGING ANYTHING, AND

CERTAINLY WITHOUT SURGERY.

HE BEGAN TO IMPROVE.

Reporter: THE

IMPROVEMENT WAS SO

DRASTIC, DOCTORS WERE ABLE

TO WEAN HIM OFF OF

MEDICATIONS AND MACHINES.

YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW

WHAT TO DO AFTER YOU'VE

HEARD THE EXCITING NEWS

THAT HE HAS A PROBABILITY

NOW OF MAKING IT.

Reporter: ANDREW'S

M.R.I. SHOWED HIS VITAL

ORGANS HAD NOT BEEN

DAMAGED.

AFTER SIX WEEKS IN THE

HOSPITAL, HE WENT HOME.

TODAY ANDREW IS A HEALTHY,

ACTIVE 11-YEAR-OLD.

HE HAS HAD NO RESIDUAL

PROBLEMS.

I WOULD CONSIDER

ANDREW'S RECOVERY AN

AWESOME BLESSING.

YOU ALL YOU CAN SAY IS

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

I DO BELIEVE ANDREW'S

MIRACLE IS AN ACT OF GOD

BECAUSE THERE WAS NO OTHER

WAY HE WOULD HAVE

SURVIVED.

Pat: AN ACT OF GOD.

AN ACT OF GOD.

MAN.

WE'VE GOT SOME REPORTS

WE'LL SHARE WITH YOU, AND

THEN WE WANT TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

ANN LIVES IN NEW HAVEN,

CONNECTICUT, AND HAD BEEN

HAVING HEADACHES FOR MANY

YEARS.

LAST SUMMER THE HEADACHES

ESCALATED, AND INCLUDING

VISION PROBLEMS AND

SWELLING AND INFECTION.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

CHRONIC MIGRAINES AND

GIVEN MEDICATIONS AND

SURGERY, BUT THE PAIN

STILL DIDN'T LEAVE.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING,

AND, TERRY, YOU HAD THIS

WORD: YOU HAVE

EXCRUCIATING HEADACHES.

THE PAIN IS RIGHT BEHIND

YOUR EYES AND IT ALMOST

FEELS LIKE YOUR EYES ARE

THROBBING.

AFTERWARDS ANN FELT

EVERYTHING THAT HAD HURT

GO AWAY, AND SHE HASN'T

HAD A MIGRAINE SINCE.

Terry: MARY HAD BEEN

SUFFERING WITH CHRONIC

PAIN IN BOTH OF HER

ELBOWS.

SHE HAD PHYSICAL THERAPY,

STRETCHING, HEAT AND COLD

TREATMENTS -- NONE OF

THESE BROUGHT HER RELIEF.

ONE DAY WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, PAT, YOU GAVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID: "YOU HAVE TENDS

TENDONITIS IN YOUR ELBOWS,

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT."

SHE SAYS THE PAIN HAD LEFT

IMMEDIATELY AND SHE HASN'T

HAD PAIN SINCE.

Pat: I DIDN'T KNOW

THAT LADY, AND YOU DIDN'T

KNOW HER --

Terry: NO.

Pat: -- BUT GOD KNOWS

YOU.

A DISCIPLE CAME AND SAID,

THE LORD JESUS SENT ME,

BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW HIM.

BUT GOD KNOWS EXACTLY WHO

YOU ARE.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS.

I WANT TO PRAY AND I WANT

TO BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU.

OH, GOD, I THANK YOU.

THERE IS A BOWEL

OBSTRUCTION THAT IS BEING

OPENED RIGHT NOW IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

FIRE!

AMEN.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEBODY, YOU

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A

VALVE OF SOME KIND.

I THINK IT IS IN YOUR

HEART.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

IT HAS BEEN

LIFE-INTERRUPTING, BUT

JUST RECEIVE IT.

Pat: NIGHT SWEATS IS

A VIRUS -- IT'S A VIRUS

THAT HAS BEEN CAUSING THIS

PROBLEM.

YOU HAVE REPEATED NIGHT

SWEATS, AND YOU HAVE CRIED

OUT TO THE LORD, AND THE

LORD IS HEALING YOU NOW.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE THEM

ANYMORE.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE VASCULAR

PROBLEMS.

IT STARTS IN YOUR HIP, AND

YOUR LEGS ARE SWELLING AND

YOU HAVE TROUBLE WALKING.

JUST LIFT YOUR HANDS AND

PRAISE GOD.

YOU'VE JUST BEEN HEALED OF

THAT.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD.

YOU'VE GOT FEAR.

FEAR IS SO BAD.

YOU'RE JUST SCARED.

MARY SUE, IS THAT THE

NAME -- YOU'RE SO SCARED.

YOU'RE SO AFRAID.

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT

FEAR.

RIGHT NOW I BIND THE

SPIRIT OF FEAR.

YOU WILL NOT BE AFRAID

ANYMORE.

YOU ARE BOLD AS A LINE.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'RE ABOUT TO LOSE YOUR

HOUSE.

YOU'VE TRIED EVERYTHING

YOU CAN, AND YOUR FINANCES

HAVE JUST NOT WORKED OUT

FOR YOU.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR PRAYER,

AND HE IS GOING TO SUPPLY

FOR YOU IN THE MOST

AMAZING WAY.

AMEN.

Pat: LORD, FOR

EVERYONE IN THIS AUDIENCE,

LET YOUR POWER REACH OUT

TO THEM IN MIGHTY WAYS.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

GIVE US A CALL AS THE LORD

HAS TOUCHED YOU.

WE LOVE TO HEAR THESE

REPORTS.

WE LOVE TO SHARE THEM.

AND IT IS OUR PRIVILEGE TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

PICK UP THE PHONE.

WE CONSIDER IT A PRIVILEGE

TO PRAY FOR YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP LATER, THE ALL-STAR

PITCHER WHO GOT BOOED OFF

THE FIELD.

I REMEMBER I WOULD GO

INTO RESTAURANTS AT NIGHT,

AND FANS WOULD BE ON THE

OTHER SIDE OF THE BAR, AND

THEY WOULD BE EXCELLING

EXPLETIVES WITH MY NAME.

I TOOK IT VERY HARD.

Terry: BARRY ZITO

LOOKS BACK ON HIS CAREER,

WHEN WE RETURN.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB".

THE F.B.I. HAS STOPPED AN

ISLAMIC TERRORIST PLOT TO

BOMB A JEWISH CENTER IN

MIAMI.

40-YEAR-OLD JAMES MEDINA

IS BEING CHARGED WITH

ATTEMPTING TO USE A WEAPON

OF MASS DESTRUCTION.

AUTHORITIES SAY HE

CONVERTED TO ISLAM ABOUT

FOUR YEARS AGO.

IN COURT ON MONDAY, HE

TOLD THE JUDGE HIS NAME IS

NOW JAMES MOHAMMED.

HE REPORTEDLY PLANNED TO

ATTACK A SYNAGOGUE ON A

JEWISH HOLIDAY BY SHOOTING

WITH AN AK-47.

BUT HE LATER SWITCHED TO

THE IDEA OF A BOMB.

HE TRIED TO PICK UP THAT

BOMB FROM AN F.B.I.

INFORMANT ON FRIDAY.

THESE GUYS COME AND

WANT TO KILL PEOPLE AND

CHILDREN IN THE SYNAGOGUE.

I'M KIND OF NOT

SURPRISED ABOUT IT BECAUSE

HE HAS THREATENED TO SHOOT

UP A CHURCH BEFORE.

Wendy: THE WOULD-BE

TERRORIST SAID HE WANTED

TO ATTACK BECAUSE,

QUOTE,"I HAVE A LOT OF

LOVE FOR ALLAH."

> RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION

IS GETTING WORSE AROUND

THE WORLD.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE

U.S. COMMISSION ON

INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

THE COMMISSION'S ANNUAL

REPORT SAYS SEVERE

VIOLATIONS HAVE BEEN

TAKING PLACE IN EGYPT,

IRAQ, NIGERIA, PAKISTAN,

SYRIA, VIETNAM, AND THE

CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC.

AND IT LISTS CHINA, IRAN,

NORTH KOREA, SAUDI ARABIA,

AND SIX OTHER NATIONS AS

COUNTRIES OF PARTICULAR

CONCERN.

THOSE COUNTRIES COULD SOON

BE SUBJECT TO U.S.

SANCTIONS.

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: OVER THE

COURSE OF HIS 14-YEAR

BASEBALL CAREER, PITCHER

BARRY ZITO HAS SEEN THE

HIGHS AND THE LOWS OF THE

GAME.

HE HAS BEEN AN ACE AND HE

HAS BEEN A BUST.

HE HAS BEEN CALLED A

SAVIOR YOURSAVIOR AND HE HAS BEEN

CALLED A CURSE.

BARRY SAID YOU COULD

DESCRIBE HIS LIFE THE SAME

WAY.

Reporter: PITCHING

DEFINED BARRY ZITO, AND BY

THE TIME HE WAS AMONG

BEEN'S ELITE AS A CY YOUNG

WINNER, HE WAS QUICK TO

CREDIT HIS WORK ETHIC AND

PERSEVERANCE.

AND SUGGEST HI I REMEMBER ONE TIME IN

2003, I WAS AT THE RITZ IN

PHILADELPHIA, AND IT WAS

AFTER A GAME, AND A WOMAN

CAME UP TO ME AND SAID,

WOW, YOU HAVE SUCH AN

INCREDIBLE PITCHING TALENT

AND THIS CURVEBALL, YOU

REALLY GOT BLESSED.

YOU WERE SO BLESSED WITH

SUCH TALENT.

I LITERALLY GOT UPSET WITH

HER.

I SAID, BLESSED?

DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD I'VE

BEEN WORKING SINCE I WAS

SEVEN?

I'VE EARNED THIS.

Reporter: OFF THE

FIELD, BARRY ENJOYED THE

SPOILS THAT CAME WITH

WORDLY SUCCESS.

IT COMPLETED HIS IDENTITY

AT BASEBALL STAR AND

HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY.

I HAD THAT HOLLYWOOD

SCENE AS MY

IDENTIFICATION, MY VALUE

AS A PERSON.

IT ALMOST BECAME AN

EXTENSION OF SUCCESS ON

THE FIELD.

Reporter: BUT IN

2007, WHEN BARRY RECEIVED

THE MOST LUCRATIVE

CONTRACT FOR A PITCHER IN

BASEBALL HISTORY AT THE

TIME, HE DIDN'T PLAN ON

HIS CAREER TAKING A DOWN

SWING.

LOOK OUT, IT IS HIGH

AND DEEP.

Reporter: HIS

MOUNTING LOSSES WEREN'T

MEETING EXPECTATIONS, AND

FANS TURNED ON HIM.

I COULDN'T SLEEP AT

NIGHT.

I WOULD BE UP AT NIGHT

GOOGLE THINGS LIKE

SELF-CONFIDENCE.

HOW DO I FEEL THAT?

2008 WAS KIND OF THE WORST

OF ALL OF THAT.

I STARTED OUT 0 AND 8.

I GOT TAKEN OUT OF THE

ROTATION.

THE NEWSPAPERS, THE TV

PEOPLE WERE SAYING

TERRIBLE THINGS.

I REMEMBER I WOULD GO INTO

RESTAURANTS AT NIGHT, AND

FANS WOULD BE ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF THE BAR AND THEY

WOULD BE YELLING

EXPLETIVES WITH MY NAME.

I TOOK IT VERY HARD.

THOSE WERE SOME OF MY

REALLY DARK YEARS.

Reporter:

UNFORTUNATELY, BIGGER

DISAPPOINTMENTS WERE TO

COME.

WHEN THE GIANTS ADVANCED

TO THE WORLD SERIES IN

2010, BARRY WAS LEFT OFF

THE POST-SEASON ROSTER

BECAUSE OF HIS

UNRELIABILITY ON THE

MOUND.

I WATCHED THE TEAM I

WAS ESSENTIALLY BROUGHT

OVER TO HELP WIN A WORLD

SERIES, I WATCHED THEM WIN

IT AND I COULDN'T

PARTICIPATE.

IT WAS THE HEAVIEST THING

I HAD EVER BEEN THROUGH IN

MY LIFE.

Reporter: BARRY WAS

BECOMING DISTANT AND

DETACHED.

HIS GIRLFRIEND, AMBER, HAD

A FRONT ROW SEAT TO HIS

STRUGGLE.

2010 WAS A REALLY DARK

YEAR FOR HIM.

THERE WERE DAYS WHEN I

WOULD LOOK INTO HIS EYES

AND BE, LIKE, ARE YOU IN

THERE?

Reporter: BARRY TRIED

TO CLEAR HIS HEAD, BUT THE

FOLLOWING YEAR BROUGHT

EVEN MORE CHALLENGES.

A CAR ACCIDENT AND A

QUIRKY FOOT INJURY THAT

SIDELINED HIM FOR THREE

MONTHS.

BARRY WAS ANXIETY ANXIOUS, AFRAID,

AND DESPERATE TO MAKE

SENSE OF IT ALL.

I HAD ALL OF THESE

BOOKS, IT WAS PROBABLY THE

ENTIRE BARNES AND NOBEL

SELF-HELP LIBRARY.

THE MORE I SPENT TIME

WITH HIM, THE MORE I

REALIZED, WHAT IS GOING ON

HERE.

I WAS READING DIFFERENT

BOOKS AND I WAS WITH

AMBER, AND SHE SAID --

I SAID, I WOULD LIKE TO

OFFER YOU ONE BOOK, AND I

PROMISE YOU YOU'RE GOING

TO GET AN ANSWER.

I HAD STARTED READING

THE BIBLE INSTANTLY, AND

WE STARTED READING

PROVERBS EVERY NIGHT.

Reporter: BARRY WAS

DONE SEEKING ANSWERS FOR

HIMSELF.

DESPERATE FOR A NEW

IDENTITY, BARRY WENT TO

TALK TO THE TEAM CHAPLAIN.

I NEED HELP, MAN.

I CANNOT DO THIS.

I'VE GONE TO THERAPIST AND

READ SELF-HELP BOOKS.

I'VE EXHAUSTED ALL OF MY

POCKETS.

POSPOSSIBILITIES.

Reporter: BARRY

PRAYED TO GIVE HIS LIFE TO

JESUS.

IN MY COMING TO JESUS

MOMENT, I HAD KIND OF

AMAZING FEELINGS INSIDE.

I HAD THIS NEW IDENTITY,

AND I KNEW JESUS WAS ON MY

SHOULDER SAYING, HEY, I'M

THE GUY.

Reporter: IN 2012,

BARRY RETURNED WITH

BRILLIANCE, WHICH HELPED

LEAD TO A WORLD

CHAMPIONSHIP, THIS TIME

WITH BARRY AT THE HELM.

THE LAST TWO MONTHS OF

THE SEASON I WAS GETTING

ON A ROLE, AND I HAD GREAT

GAMES IN THE PLAYOFFS AND

GOT TO PITCH GAME ONE OF

THE WORLD SERIES, AND WON

THAT GAME.

AND THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE

WAS ABOUT GOD.

IT WAS NOT ABOUT ME.

Reporter: AS BARRY

RETIRES FROM HIS BASEBALL

CAREER, HE HAS FOUND PEACE

AND PURPOSE IN LIFE.

NOW MARRIED TO AMBER,

THEY'RE ENJOYING

PARENTHOOD FOR THE FIRST

TIME, NEVER LOSING SIGHT

OF THE NEW LIFE THEY HAVE

DISCOVERED IN CHRIST.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I

CAN FEEL ALONE, EVEN NOW,

AND I REALIZE IT'S BECAUSE

I GET CAUGHT UP IN MY OWN

NEUROSIS OF MY HUMANNESS.

WHEN I STEP BACK AND SAY,

HOLD ON, I'M NOT ALONE AT

ALL.

I'M A WHOLE, COMPLETE

PERSON BECAUSE MY LIFE IS

IN JESUS CHRIST.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IT

IS INTERESTING, WHEN YOU

LISTEN TO BARRY TALK ABOUT

ALL OF THE NEGATIVE THINGS

THAT WERE HAPPENING TO

HIM.

YOU WOULD THINK, WELL, THE

POOR GUY.

BUT, REALLY, IT IS EXACTLY

WHERE GOD IS CALLING US.

COME TO THE END OF

YOURSELF SO YOU CAN COME

TO ME.

Pat: WE WILL NEVER DO

IT UNTIL WE EMPTY

OURSELVES.

AS LONG AS WE'RE

SELF-SUFFICIENT, WE DON'T

NEED GOD.

I DON'T NEED YOU; I'VE GOT

MY OWN LIFE.

IT IS WHEN WE COME TO THE

END OF OURSELVES AND WE

CALL UPON GOD --

Terry: AND MAYBE THE

MOST AMAZING, MIRACULOUS

PART OF THAT IS THAT THE

CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE

WAITS, WAITS FOR US.

MANY OF YOU LISTENING TO

BARRY'S STORY MAY SAY, I'M

AT THE END OF MYSELF, AT

THE END OF MY ROPE, AND I

WANT TO BEGIN TO

UNDERSTAND WHO JESUS

CHRIST IS.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PRAY

WITH SOMEONE TODAY, WE

WANT YOU TO KNOW OUR PHONE

LINES ARE ALWAYS

AVAILABLE, AND THEY'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-759-0700.

COMMITMENT INVOLVED.

THERE IS JUST A FRIEND AT

THE OTHER END OF THE LINE

WHO WOULD LOVE TO PRAY

WITH YOU TODAY.

GIVE US A CALL.

> COMING UP NEXT, WE'RE

GOING TO OPEN OUR IN BOX

AND ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM

OUR VIEWERS.

BORIS SAYS, "MY SISTER

SAYS IT IS A SIN TO EAT

MEAT AND USES THE

SCRIPTURE TO BACK UP HER

STATEMENTS.

IS THIS TRUE?"

PATPAT'S GOING TO WEIGH IN ON

THAT AND MORE WHEN WE

RETURN.

Terry: RAISING

CHILDREN IS TOUGH.

IT IS EVEN HARDER TO DO AS

A SINGLE MOM IN HONDURAS.

THAT'S WHERE WE MET A

WOMAN NAMED MARIA.

EVERY DAY SHE FACED A

TERRIBLE CHOICE: KEEP HER

FAMILY WARM OR PUT FOOD ON

THE TABLE.

Reporter: IT GETS

COLD HERE IN THE MOUNTAINS

OF HONDURAS, WHERE MARIA

LIVES WITH HER TWO

CHILDREN.

I PULLED THE KIDS IN

FRONT OF THE FIRE, TO TRY

TO WARM THEM UP BEFORE

BED.

Reporter: MARIA MOVED

HERE LAST YEAR BECAUSE SHE

HEARD SHE MIGHT FIND WORK

IN THE COFFEE FIELDS.

WOMEN ARE NOT WELL-PAID

HERE.

ONLY THE MEN.

Reporter: WHEN SHE

CAN FIND WORK, MARIA EARNS

ABOUT $3 A DAY.

SHE CRIED AS SHE TOLD US

ABOUT HER DILEMMA.

I HAD TO BUY FOOD

INSTEAD OF BLANKETS

BECAUSE FEEDING MY

CHILDREN IS MORE IMPORTANT

THAN KEEPING MY CHILDREN

WARM.

Reporter: AND

4-YEAR-OLD DANIEL

DEVELOPED PNEUMONIA.

HIS BIG BROTHER FELT

WORRIED.

I THOUGHT IF I FELL

ASLEEP, MY LITTLE BROTHER

WOULD DIE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD

DO WITHOUT HIM.

Reporter: A NEIGHBOR

TOLD MARIA ABOUT AN

"OPERATION BLESSING"

COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER

WHO LIVED NEARBY.

SHE DIAGNOSED DANIEL'S

CONDITION AND GAVE HIM AN

ANTIBIOTIC AND A BREATHING

TREATMENT.

I ONLY HAD $2 IN MY

WALLET, SHE, AND SHE WOULDN'T

TAKE ANYTHING.

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

LATER, AN "OPERATION

BLESSING" DOCTOR VISITED

DANIEL AND TOLD HER HE

WOULD MAKE A FULL

RECOVERY.

THEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

DELIVERED JACKETS AND

BLANKETS TO HELP THEM STAY

WARM.

AND WE GAVE HER CHICKENS

AND A HEN TO START A

POULTRY BUSINESS.

TO ME IT IS AMAZING

WHAT "OPERATION BLESSING"

HAS DONE.

YOU HAVE CHANGED OUR

LIVES.

NOW THAT I HAVE A NEW

JACKET, I DON'T FEEL COLD

ANYMORE.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Terry: THERE IS SO

MUCH IN THE WORLD THAT WE

CAN'T CHANGE OR HAVE AN

IMPACT ON.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,

YOU CAN TOUCH AND CHANGE

AND HAVE A DEEP IMPACT ON

THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN

NEED AROUND THE WORLD WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF US

WHO ARE OUT TO MAKE THAT

DIFFERENCE.

AND WE WANT TO INVITE YOU

TO BE PART OF THAT.

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH.

THAT MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

THE WAY TO DO THIS IS TO

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL:

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com.

WHEN YOU CALL, JUST SAY, I

WANT TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IMMEDIATELY YOU'LL BE

JOINING WITH THE REST OF

US, AND YOU'LL HAVE THE

SATISFACTION OF KNOWING

YOU REALLY ARE TOWP TOUCHING

AND CHANGING LIVES, LIKE

MARIA AND HER CHILDREN.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK

YOU FOR CARING ABOUT

PEOPLE IN NEED IS TO SEND

YOU PAT'S LATEST.

AND IT'S CALLED "HEAVEN,

WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR

THOSE WHO LOVE HIM."

IT IS OUR WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT

PEOPLE IN NEED.

SO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB"

TODAY.

IT IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY.

> ARE YOU READY FOR SOME

QUESTIONS?

THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

BORIS WHO SAYS, "MY SISTER

HAS LATELY BEEN ARGUING

WITH ME THAT EATING MEAT

FROM SLAUGHTER HOUSES IS A

SIN AND BREAKS THE

COMMANDMENT OF THOU SHALT

NOT KILL.

SHE THINKS IT IS MORALLY

WRONG TO EAT OTHER

ANIMALS.

IS THIS BIBLICALLY TRUE?

OR DID GOD MAKE US HIGHER

THAN ANIMALS?"

Pat: THE COMMANDMENT

THOU SHALL NOT KILL REFERS

TO PEOPLE.

THE FIRST FAMILY, ADAM AND

EVE, HAD TWO SONS.

CANE AND ABLE.

CANE CAME BEFORE THE LORD

AND HE BROUGHT A SACRIFICE

OF THE FRUIT OF HIS

VEGETABLES.

ABLE SLAUGHTERED A LAMB

AND BROUGHT THE LAMB AS A

SACRIFICE.

AND GUESS WHICH SACRIFICE

WAS PLEASING TO THE LORD?

Terry: THE LAMB.

Pat: THE LAMB.

AND JESUS IS THE LAMB OF

GOD, SACRIFICED FOR THE

WORLD.

THE JEWS ATE MEAT.

IT IS ALL THROUGH THE OLD

TESTAMENT.

THIS VEGAN STUFF, IF YOU

DON'T GET ENOUGH PROTEIN,

YOU'RE GOING TO GET SICK.

YOU CAN HAVE A COMBINATION

IF YOU EAT BEANS AND

CORN -- IT IS A BALANCED

PROTEIN.

BUT IF YOU DON'T GET 22

AMINO ACIDS, YOU'RE GOING

TO GET SICK.

A LOT OF VEEG GANS ARE VEGANS ARE GOING

TO WALK AROUND SICK.

Terry: SHERRY SAYS,

"I WENT TO A CHURCH WHERE

EVERYTHING SEEMED ALL

RIGHT UNTIL THE

CONGREGATION KEPT CALLING

THE PASTOR SPIRITUAL

FATHER.

PEOPLE WERE GETTING

HEALED.

AND PEOPLE WERE DANCING.

ARE WE SUPPOSED TO CALL

ANYONE OUR SPIRITUAL

FATHER?"

THE.

Pat: SAYS, CALL NO

ONE BUT THE FATHER,

FATHER.

OBVIOUSLY, I'M A FATHER,

AND I HAVE CHILDREN AND

THEY CALL ME FATHER, AND

GRANDCHILDREN, AND THEY

CALL ME GRANDDADDY AND SO

FORTH.

I DON'T QUITE UNDERSTAND

WHAT THAT MEANS AND HOW IT

IS SUPPOSED TO BE APPLIED.

BUT I THINK, OBVIOUSLY,

YOU HAVE A FATHER.

AND GOD IS OUR FATHER.

OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN

HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY

NAME.

SO I DON'T KNOW WHERE THAT

FITS IN.

I REALLY DON'T.

WHATEVER IT IS, IF THEY

CALL THAT PASTOR SPIRITUAL

FATHER -- THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAYS YOU'VE GOT MANY

TEACHERS IN CHRIST, BUT

YOU DON'T HAVE BUT ONE

FATHER.

SO, ANYWAY --

Terry: I JUST CAME

BACK FROM PERU AND THERE

WAS A CHURCH THERE WHERE

THE PASTOR AND THE WIFE

WERE THE SPIRITUAL FATHER

AND MOTHER TO MANY.

IT JUST MEANT THEY WERE

TEACHERS AND RESPONSIBLE

FOR THE PEOPLE FOR THEIR

SPIRITUAL MATURITY.

Pat: I CAN'T GET THAT

APPLICATION OF THAT LINED

UP WITH SOME OF THE

PRACTICE THAT ARS THAT ARE IN THE

BIBLE.

Terry: THIS STATES,

Pat: THE SPIRIT IS

WITH THE LORD.

I'M ABSENCE WITH THE BODY,

BUT I'M AT HOME WITH THE

LORD.

THE RESURRECTION IS THE

JOINING TOGETHER OF OUR

SPIRITS WITH A SPIRITUAL

HEAVENLY BODY.

WE DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT

THAT BODY IS GOING TO BE

LIKE.

BUT THE DEAD IN CHRIST

SHALL RISE.

THAT MEANS SOME NEW BODY

WILL BE JOINED WITH THEIR

SPIRITS, WHICH ARE

THEORETICALLY ALREADY WITH

THE LORD.

Terry: THIS IS

REBECCA WHO SAYS, "I KNOW

I'M GOING TO LOSE MY

MOTHER.

SHE HAS LIVER FAILURE AND

ALL OF THESE MEDICAL

PROBLEMS.

PEOPLE KEEP TELLING ME TO

FACE THE REALITY OF I'M

LOSING HER.

HOW CAN I LET GO?"

Pat: YOU LET GO BY

GRABBING AHOLD OF GOD.

THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR YOUR

MOTHER IS VERY IMPORTANT.

BUT WE ALL HAVE TO DIE.

IT IS APPOINTED TO MAN

ONCE TO DIE AND AFTER THAT

THE JUDGMENT.

OUR PARENTS DIE.

OUR LOVED ONES DIE.

OUR AUNTS AND UNCLES DIE.

IT IS PART OF LIFE.

LIFE AND DEATH AND THEN

RESURRECTION.

SO YOU GET HOLD OF WHAT

THE REALITY IS, AND THEN

YOU SQUARE IT WITH WHAT IS

GOING ON.

AND THAT'S HOW YOU LET GO.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

1 CORINTHIANS: "AND NOW

THESE THREE REMAIN: FAITH,

HOPE AND LOVE, BUT THE

GREATEST OF THESE IS

LOVE."

SO FOR WENDY AND TERRY AND

ALL OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON, AND LORD

WILLING, WE'LL SEE YOU

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
