The 700 Club - July 14, 2016

The “bad kid” who was facing 15 years behind bars makes a jailhouse confession. Plus, one family prepares for a miracle after a deadly drunk driving accident injures their son. Read Transcript


I JUST THOUGHT OF THE

ONE WORD, ACCIDENT.

Wendy: ONE THAT

INVOLVED A DRUNK DRIVER

AND HER TEENAGED SON.

THEY SAID, HE MAY NOT

MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT.

LORD, SAVE MY CHILD.

DON'T LET HIM DIE.

Wendy: PLUS...THE BAD

KID --

I STARTED STEALING.

Wendy: ...WHO WAS

FACING 15 YEARS BEHIND

BARS.

HIS JAILHOUSE CONFESSION

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

I DON'T KNOW HOW IT IS IN

YOUR PART OF THE COUNTRY,

BUT IT IS HOT HERE.

IT IS GOING TO HAVE A HEAT

INDEX, I THINK, OF ABOUT

105, AND THAT IS POWERFUL

HOT.

BUT SPEAKING OF HEAT,

THERE IS A DEAD HEAT IN

THE ELECTION.

DONALD TRUMP AND HILLARY

CLINTON ARE NOW TIED AT

HAD 40%.

THE LATEST POLL FROM THE

"NEW YORK TIMES" AND CBS

NEWS.

AFTER THE F.B.I.

INVESTIGATION INTO

CLINTON'S E-MAIL SCANDAL,

IT LOOKED REALLY BAD.

AND WE WANT TO POINT OUT

THAT THE BRITS HAVE JUST

PUT IN A WOMAN.

THERESA MAY.

AND THEY KICKED DAVID

CAMERON OUT OF 10 DOWNING

STREET.

THE ONLY ONE LEFT WAS THE

CAT.

AND WE'VE GOT A WOMAN.

I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF

HAVING DINNER WITH A SMALL

GROUP, AND MARGARET

THATCHER WAS THE GUEST OF

HONOR.

AND WE HAD A CHANCE TO

CHAT.

SHE WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY

LADY.

BUT THIS WOMAN DIDN'T WANT

BREXIT.

SHE WANTED BRITAIN TO STAY

IN THE E.U., SO IT WILL BE

INTERESTING.

I DON'T THINK IT

PRE-STAGES A WOMAN IN THE

UNITED STATES PRESIDENCY.

IT JUST LOOKS LIKE A

BLOWOUT FOR TRUMP.

BUT 40-40, AT THIS STAGE

OF THINGS, IS

EXTRAORDINARY.

Wendy: AND SOME OF

THE OTHER POLLS HAS SHOWED

THAT TRUMP HAS MADE GAINS

IN THE KEY SWING STATES.

AND TRUMP IS SET TO NAME

HIS RUNNING MATE TOMORROW

MORNING IN NEW YORK.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP IS IN HIS FINAL

STAGE OF NAMING A RUNNER

MATE.

IN MY MIND, I HAVE

ABOUT TWO.

Reporter: TRUMP AND

HIS FAMILY PAYING A VISIT

TO GOVERNOR PENCE'S

MANSION ON THURSDAY.

BUT TRUMP IS NOT GIVING

ANYTHING AWAY, RAMPING UP

SUSPENCE FOR HIS BIG

REVEAL ON FRIDAY.

YOU'LL BE CALLING UP

MIKE PENCE.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE IS

GOING TO BE YOUR GOVERNOR

OR VICE PRESIDENT -- WHO

THE HELL KNOWS.

Reporter: AND ALSO ON

THE LISTS OF V.P. HOPEFUL,

NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR CHRIS

CHRISTIE, AND NEWT

GINGRICH, WHO SOURCES SAY

FLEW TO INDIANA ON

WEDNESDAY TO MEET WITH

TRUMP.

I'M NOT SAYING IT IS

NEWT, BUT IF IT IS NEWT,

NOBODY WILL BE BEATING HIM

IN THE DEBATES.

Reporter: AN NBC

"WALL STREET JOURNAL" POLL

SHOWED CLINTON WITH A

THREE-POINT LEAD IN IOWA.

IIN PENNSYLVANIA, THE POLL

SHOWED HIM HOLDING A

NINE-POINT LEAD.

BUT A DIFFERENT POLL

SHOWED TRUMP WITH A

TWO-POINT LEAD.

AND IT HAD TRUMP UP BY

THREE POINTS IN FLORIDA, A

SIGNIFICANT CHANGE FROM

ITS POLL OF A MONTH AGO

THAT REPRESENTED A

DOUBLE-DIGIT SURGE FOR THE

REPUBLICANS.

BOTH POLLS HAVE THE TWO

TIED IN OHIO.

MANY PEOPLE THAT THE STATE

IS A MUST-WIN FOR TRUMP.

CLINTON'S LOSS OF MOMENTUM

CLEARLY TIED TO HER E-MAIL

SCANDAL, WITH AN ABC

"WASHINGTON POST" POLL

SHOWING 56% OF AMERICANS

DISAPPROVE OF THE F.B.I.'S

RECOMMENDATION NOT TO

BRING CHARGES.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU KNOW, A LOT

OF THINGS CAN HAPPEN ON

THE ROAD TO THE WHITE

HOUSE IN THE NEXT COUPLE

OF MONTHS.

THERE COULD BE A WAR.

THERE COULD BE A

REVOLUTION.

THERE COULD BE A HIDEOUS

EARTHQUAKE.

THERE COULD BE A METEOR

STRIKE -- ALL KINDS OF

THINGS, SO YOU CAN'T

PREDICT.

BUT FROM THE WAY THINGS

ARE GOING, IT LOOKS LIKE

IT IS GOING TO BE A

BLOWOUT FOR TRUMP.

IT IS JUST AMAZING.

ONCE A CANDIDATE STARTS TO

SLIP THE WAY HILLARY

CLINTON HAS, IT WILL BE

ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.

HOW DOES SHE REINVENT

HERSELF.

EVERYBODY NES WH KNOWS WHO SHE

IS.

SHE SWUNG HARD TO THE LEFT

TO APPEAL TO THE BERNIE

SANDERS' VOTER, BUT SHE IS

NOT COMING THROUGH AS

AUTHENTIC TO THEM.

IT IS AMAZING, BUT IT

COULD BE -- I REMEMBER

WHEN REAGAN WAS RUNNING

AGAINST MONDALE.

MY WORD.

YOU KNOW, THEY SAID HE IS

AN OLD MAN, HE IS GOING TO

LOSE, AND HE BLEW HIM OUT.

MONDALE WON ONE STATE, I

THINK, AND THAT WAS HIS

OWN STATE.

THIS IS SHAPING UP THAT

WAY BECAUSE TRUMP IS GOING

TO -- IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS

SCORING POINTS WITH

BLUE-COLLAR WORKERS.

THE CORE OF THE DEMOCRATIC

PARTY, THE LABOR UNION

PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTED

BECAUSE OF THE KEYSTONE

X.L. PIPELINE DECISIONS.

IT IS GOING TO BE

INTERESTING.

Wendy: WHO DO YOU

THINK WILL HELP TRUMP

MORE, IF HE SELECTS NEWT

OR MIKE PENCE?

Pat: I DON'T THINK A

VICE PRESIDENT MAKES ALL

THAT MUCH DIFFERENCE, I

REALLY DON'T.

IF HE PUT SOME

SAFFRON-ROBED SWAMI IN AS

VICE PRESIDENT, THEN THEY

WOULD THINK HE IS CRAZY.

BUT HE HAS OBVIOUSLY A

CAREFULLY THOUGHT-OUT

PLAN.

AND IF HE PUTS IN PENCE IT

IS GOOD.

IF HE PUTS IN NEWT, IT IS

GOOD.

IT WILL SHORE UP THE FACT

THAT HE IS NOT SOME BOMB

THROWER.

HE IS A STABLE GUY.

Wendy: WE'LL SEE

TOMORROW.

Pat: WE'LL SEE

TOMORROW.

HE DIDN'T GIVE ME ANY

CLUE.

> IN OTHER NEWS, IT'S A

NATION THAT SHOULD BE ONE

OF THE WEALTHIEST IN THE

WORLD.

IT HAS MORE OIL THAN

ANYBODY.

BUT TODAY IT IS FILLED

WITH STARVING PEOPLE.

THAT'S THE COUNTRY THAT I

WAS EXORIATED IN THE PRESS

BECAUSE I SUGGESTED THAT

AFTER LOOKING AT A SURVEY

OF HUGO CHAVEZ, I SAID IT

MAY BE THAT THIS IS THE

KIND OF PERSON THAT THEY

WOULD CONSIDER AN

ASSASSINATION.

WELL, THEY SHOULD HAVE

DONE IT BECAUSE THAT

COUNTRY IS DESTROYED.

THE CHAFEZMO HAS DESTROYED

VENEZUALA.

LET'S GO TO JOHN JESSUP TO

FIND OUT WHAT THE STORY

IS.

John: IN VENEZUALA,

THE ECONOMIC CRIES IS

GETTING EVEN WORSE.

AND CRITICS SAY IT IS A

TESTAMENT TO THE DAMAGE

SOCIALISM CAN DO TO A

NATION.

DALE HURD HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: THERE ARE

LINES, AND THEN THERE ARE

LINES IN VENS VEN.

VENEZUALA.

ITS ECONOMY IN RUINS.

THE AVERAGE VENEZUALAN

SHOPPER SPENDS NEARLY 10

HOURS A WEEK, JUST WAITING

TO BUY FOOD.

I AM NUMBER 900.

900!

THIS IS MY I.D. CARD.

IN VENEZUALA, THERE IS NO

FOOD.

Reporter: FOOD RIOTS

ARE INCREASING.

MORE PEOPLE ARE MURDERED

IN CARACAS THAN IN ANY

CITY OUTSIDE OF A DECLARED

WAR ZONE.

AND WITH FOOD TRUCKS BEING

HIJACKED AND STORES

LOOTED, PRESIDENT NICOLAS

MADURO HAS NOW PUT THE

ARMY IN CHARGE OF THE FOOD

SUPPLY CHAIN.

MANY VENEZUALANS ARE

SLOWLY STARVING.

KELLY VEGAS HAS LOST

30 POUNDS, MAKING SURE HER

DAUGHTER EATS BEFORE SHE

DOES.

RIGHT NOW WE EAT ONLY

TWO MEALS A DAY.

IF WE EAT BREAKFAST, WE

DON'T HAVE LUNCH.

IF WE HAVE LUNCH, THERE IS

NO DINNER.

Reporter: KITCHEN

CUPBOARDS ARE EMPTY.

AND WITH INFLAMMATION

EXPECTED TO HIT 720% THIS

YEAR, IT DOESN'T PAY FOR

LOW-WAGE EMPLOYEES TO EVEN

SHOW UP FOR WORK.

UNTIL A FEW DAYS AGO, THE

GOVERNMENT WAS FORCED TO

IMPLEMENT ROLLING

FOUR-HOUR BLACKOUTS TO

SAVE POWER.

THIS IS IN A NATION WITH

THE WORLD'S LARGEST PROVEN

OIL RESERVES.

BUT YEARS OF MISMANAGE

HUMANITMISMANAGEMENTHAS BROUGHT THE OIL

PRODUCTION TO A HALT.

HUGO CHAVEZ THREW AROUND

HUGE AMOUNTS OF CASH TO

FUND A SOCIALIST

GOVERNMENT.

JAVIER SAID, I CAME HERE

TO BUY RICE, SUGAR, MILK,

MEDICINE, AND WHATEVER

ELSE WE CAN GET BECAUSE WE

ALREADY DON'T HAVE

ANYTHING TO EAT.

WE'RE STARVING.

THIS WEEK U.S. COMPANY

KIMBERLY CLARK FINALLY HAD

ENOUGH OF THE ECONOMIC

CHAOS AND CLOSED ITS

FACTORY IN CARACAS.

CITIBANK ALSO CLOSED THE

ACCOUNT THAT THE

VENEZUALAN GOVERNMENT USED

TO MAKE INTERNATIONAL

PAYMENTS.

PRESIDENT MADURO IS

CAUSING IT A U.S. PLOT

AGAINST HIM.

IT IS UNCLEAR IF MADURO IS

ON BORROWED TIME.

MOST VENEZUALANS WANT HIM

OUT.

BUT MA MADURO STILL CONTROLS

MOST OF THE LEVERAGE OF

POWER.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS, DALE.

> PAT, SO MUCH SUFFERING

IN VENEZUALA.

Pat: DALE CALLED IT A

LONG TIME AGO.

I WAS PICKING UP ON HIS

STORY WHEN I MADE MY

ILL-TIMED REMARKS.

THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN FAR,

FAR BETTER OFF IF THEY HAD

A COUP AT THAT TIME

AGAINST THAT CHAVEZ.

HE WAS A MADMAN.

ONE PERSON -- WHAT THEY

CAN DO.

I HOPE THE YOUNG PEOPLE,

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM, WHO

ARE ENTRENCHED WITH THE

SOCIALISM OF BERNIE

SANDERS, WHERE IT WILL

LEAD.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

YOU HAVE THE SOLUTION OF

COMMUNISM.

MARGARET THATCHER WAS

REPORTED TO HAVE SAID

SOCIALISM WILL LAST AS

LONG AS THERE IS OTHER

PEOPLE'S MONEY YOU CAN

TAKE.

THEY'VE TAKEN ALL OF THE

MONEY.

THERE ISN'T ANYTHING LEFT.

IT IS DREADFULLY

MISMANAGED.

THE LARGEST OIL RESERVES

OF ANY NATION ON EARTH,

AND THAT INCLUDES SAUDI

ARABIA.

IT IS A HUGELY WEALTHY

COUNTRY.

TO BE INTO THE DEPTHS OF

POVERTY OF THIS DEGREE --

THIS IS WHAT SOCIALISM

WILL DO, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

WE NEED TO FIGHT LIKE

CRAZY TO KEEP THE SYSTEM

WE HAVE IN THIS COUNTRY.

MANY PEOPLE WANT TO

DESTROY CAPITALISM, BUT

SOCIALISM DOESN'T WORK.

John: ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU HAD A MESSAGE

FOR EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS

IN NAIROBI, KENYA.

NETANYAHU SAID ISRAEL HAS

NO BETTER FRIENDS THAN

CHRISTIANS WHO LOVE AND

SUPPORT THE JEWISH NATION.

AND HE TOLD THEM THEY WERE

WELCOME IN ISRAEL.

Reporter: THE SOUND

OF CHOFFERS GREETED

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU.

HE INVITED THE CROWD TO

COME TO ISRAEL, THE LAND

OF THE BIBLE.

THOSE WHO YOU WHO HAVE

COME, COME AGAIN.

THOSE WHO HAVEN'T COME,

COME.

YOU WILL COME TO THE SEA

OF GALILEE.

Reporter: HE TOLD

THEM ABOUT THE STORY OF

KIBBUTZ, WHICH DISCOVERED

A 2,000-YEAR-OLD FISHING

BOTTLE.

IT IS A FISHING BOAT,

AND IT IS RIGHT AT THE

TIME OF JESUS.

SO IT STANDS THERE IN

KIBBUTZ.

AND WHEN YOU COME THERE,

YOU WILL SEE IT.

LOOK, I CAN'T TELL YOU

THAT JESUS WAS ON THAT

BOAT.

BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT

THAT BOAT WAS IN THE TIME

OF JESUS.

Reporter: HE

DESCRIBED THE COMMON BOND

OF JEWS AND CHRISTIANS

GROUNDED IN THE LAND OF

THE BIBLE.

THESE ARE REAL PLACES.

THEY SPEAK TO YOU.

AND THEY SPEAK TO US.

WE CAME BACK TO THE LAND

OF ISRAEL.

AND WE REALIZED THE DREAMS

OF THE PROPHETS, OF THE

IN-GATHERING OF THE

EXILES.

I'M GLAD -- I'M GLAD I

HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY --

THE PRIVILEGE, REALLY --

OF COMING TO AFRICA TO

MEET YOU.

WE HAVE NO BETTER FRIENDS

OF THE WORLD.

NONE.

WE APPRECIATE OUR

FRIENDSHIP.

AND WE'RE EXPANDING IT

INTO THE CONTINENT OF

AFRICA.

Reporter: NETANYAHU'S

TRIP REPRESENTS A NEW

BEGINNING IN

AFRICAN-ISRAELI RELATIONS.

SEVEN LEADERS FROM

SEVEN AFRICAN COUNTRIES,

TALKING ABOUT TO COMPOUND

LIATHEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH

ISRAEL.

ISRAEL IS COMING BACK TO

AFRICA.

AFRICA IS COMING BACK TO

ISRAEL.

WE WANT TO SEE AFRICA BE

THE SUCCESS STORY IT CAN

BE, AND WE WANT TO BE PART

OF IT IN EVERYTHING.

IN WATER, IN AGRICULTURE,

IN DAIRY PRODUCTION.

AND WE ARE EAGER TO SHARE

ALL OF THIS WITH OUR

AFRICAN FRIENDS.

Reporter: AND HE ALSO

DESCRIBED THE DISMAL

SITUATION FOR CHRISTIANS

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

IN THE MIDDLE EAST

TODAY, UNFORTUNATELY, THE

ATTITUDES TOWARDS

CHRISTIANS AND

CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A GOOD

ONE.

YOU SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING

TO CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES

AND TO THE YAZIDIS AND TO

OTHERS.

THERE IS ONE PLACE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST WHERE THE

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY IS NOT

ONLY NOT SHRINKING, IT IS

THRIVING AND EXPANDING,

AND IT IS SAFE, AND IT IS

WELCOME, AND THAT PLACE IS

ISRAEL.

YOU ARE WELCOME IN ISRAEL.

Reporter: AT THE END

OF THE MEETING, THE

CHRISTIAN LEADERS

PRESENTED NETANYAHU WITH A

GIFT.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

John: THANKS, CHRIS.

IN HEALTH NEWS, BEING

OBESE OR OVERWEIGHT CAN

LITERALLY CUT YOUR LIFE

SHORT BY UP TO 10 YEARS.

THAT IS ONE OF THE

FINDINGS OF A STUDY OF

NEARLY FOUR MILLION PEOPLE

ACROSS FOUR CONTINENTS.

THE STUDY FOUND THE RISK

IS GREATER FOR MEN THAN

WOMEN.

ON AVERAGE, OVERWEIGHT

PEOPLE LOSE ABOUT A YEAR

OF LIFE.

THE HEAVIER YOU ARE, THE

MORE YEARS YOU CAN CUT OFF

YOUR LIFE.

OBESITY IS SECOND ONLY TO

SMOKING AS A CAUSE OF

PRE-MATURE DEATH IN

AMERICA AND NORTH AMERICA.

IF THIS STUDY DOESN'T

CONVINCE AMERICA, I'M NOT

SURE WHAT WILL.

Pat: GET MOVING.

AACETYL L-CARNITINE, THAT

IS A FAT BURNER.

Wendy: AND JUST

SAYING NO TO THAT SECOND

DOUBLE BURGER

CHEESEBURGER.

Pat: YOU'RE A APPETITE

BEGINS TO SHRINK, AND THAT

MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE

BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO

EAT VERY MUCH.

THEY WORK TOGETHER.

AT THE SAME TIME, WE JUST

ARE EATING THE WRONG

STUFF.

AND I'M A GREAT FAN OF --

I'VE PREACHED ON THIS

PROGRAM, BUT I THINK THESE

MICRONUTRIENTS YOU FIND IN

BERRIES AND NUTS, THEY'RE

VERY IMPORTANT.

Wendy: LIFE IS TOO

SHORT ALREADY.

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO CUT

IT SHORT 10 YEARS BECAUSE

OF WHAT YOU'RE EATING.

Pat: I'M ON BORROWED

TIME.

THEY SAY YOU GET FOUR

SCORE IN TEN -- I'M ON FOR

FIVE SCORE.

Wendy: UP NEXT, ARE

YOU BETTER OFF NOW THAN

YOU WERE EIGHT YEARS AGO?

PRESIDENT OBAMA HOPES THE

ANSWER IS YET.

WE'LL LOOK BACK AT HIS TWO

TERMS IN OFFICE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WHEN I WAS

INTERVIEWING DONALD TRUMP,

I ASKED HIM ABOUT SOME

POWER THE PRESIDENT HAS.

THERE ARE SO-CALLED

EXECUTIVE ORDERS, AND A

PRESIDENT HAS THE POWER,

WITHOUT ASKING FOR

CONGRESS, TO ISSUE

EXECUTIVE ORDERS, OR TO

REVOKE THEM.

AND I ASKED MR. TRUMP IF

HE WAS PREPARED, ON THE

DAY OF HIS INAUGURATION,

TO CANCEL A GROUP OF

EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

THE CURRENT PRESIDENT HAS

PUT OUT A SHOCKING NUMBER

OF THEM, 250 OR

SOMETHING -- I DON'T HAVE

THE EXACT NUMBER, BUT IT

IS AN ENORMOUS NUMBER OF

VERY FAR-REACHING ORDERS

FROM THE EXECUTIVE, THAT

HAS TREMENDOUS IMPACT ON

OUR ECONOMY.

AND YOU ASK YOURSELF, WHAT

HAS HAPPENED IN THIS

ADMINISTRATION?

MR. OBAMA HAS BEEN IN

OFFICE FOR EIGHT YEARS.

AND IS THE ECONOMY BETTER?

THEY HAVE TRIED TO CLAIM

WE HAVE HAD A GREAT

REBOUND AFTER THIS

RECESSION.

WELL, THE ECONOMY IS ONE

OF THE TOP ISSUES OF THIS

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND

SO WAS IT EIGHT YEARS AGO,

WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS

ELECTED.

CRITICS SAY THE PRESIDENT

HAS FAILED TO RESTORE THE

ECONOMY.

INSTEAD, HE HAS BURIED IT

UNDER A HEAVY BURDEN OF

REGULATIONS AND TAXES.

THEY SAY HIS OTHER MAJOR

DOMESTIC PROGRAMS, LIKE

OBAMACARE, HAVE ALSO

FAILED TO LIVE UP TO HIS

PROMISES.

I ASKED OUR NEWS REPORTERS

TO GET TOGETHER AND SEE IF

THEY COULDN'T GIVE US A

SCORECARD OF THE

ACCOMPLISHESMENTACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THIS

ADMINISTRATION, AND

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY.

Jennifer: A SURPRISE

WALK ON THE NATIONAL MALL.

MEETING KIDS AT THE WHITE

HOUSE SCIENCE FAIR, OR

BECOMING THE FIRST

COMMANDER IN CHIEF TO USE

A SELFIE STICK.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS A WAY

WITH PEOPLE.

HE HAS GOT THE SWAG.

Jennifer: BUT MANY

AMERICANS SAY THAT THE

POLICIES HE HAS PUSHED

OVER THE PAST SEVEN AND A

HALF YEARS HAS LEFT THE

NATION IN A STATE OF

DISREPAIR.

WHEN HE STARTED, AMERICA

WAS BLEEDING JOBS, LOSING

800,000 EACH MONTH.

A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS

PASSED THE PRESIDENT'S

SOLUTION, AN $830 BILLION

STIMULUS PLAN.

President Obama: I

THINK WE'VE COME THROUGH,

PROBABLY THE TOUGHEST YEAR

WE'VE HAD SINCE THE

'30s.

Jennifer: BUT SEVEN

YEARS LATER, THE ECONOMY

STILL IN FULLY BACK ON

TRACK.

LIBERAL ECONOMISTS SAY HIS

STIMULUS PACKAGE WASN'T

BIG ENOUGH.

AND CONSERVATIVES SAY

SINKING MORE MONEY INTO

GOVERNMENT WAS NEVER THE

SOLUTION.

IN REALITY, THE GROWTH

THAT FOLLOWED THE

PRESIDENT'S STIMULUS HAS

BEEN VERY WEAK COMPARED TO

OTHER RECOVERIES.

IF YOU COMPARE HIS

RECOVERY TO PREVIOUS

RECOVERIES, IT IS A HUGE

FAILURE.

IT IS THE WORST ECONOMIC

RECOVERY SINCE THE GREAT

DEPRESSION.

Jennifer: IN THE

'80s, AFTER 10 QUARTERS

OF RECOVERY UNDER

PRESIDENT REAGAN, THE

ECONOMY WAS EXPLODING AT

6%.

DURING THE SAME AMOUNT OF

TIME, UNDER PRESIDENT

OBAMA, THE ECONOMY GREW

JUST 2. 2.4%.

AND THAT'S JUST HALF OF

THE RATE OF OTHER

RECESSIONS.

EVEN THOUGH THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HAS

DROPPED, WITH MILLIONS

LEAVING THE WORKFORCE, THE

ECONOMY HAS GROWN

RELATIVELY SLOWLY

THROUGHOUT THE OBAMA

PRESIDENCY.

IT IS AN ISSUE THAT STILL

DOGS HIM IN THE SUNSET OF

HIS SECOND TERM.

WHILE MANY CITIES HAVE

RECOVERED, STUDIES SHOW

RURAL REGIONS STILL

HAVEN'T REGAINED JOBS LOST

DURING THE RECESSION.

SOME EVEN CONTINUE TO

DETERIORATE.

EARLY IN HIS FIRST TIME,

PRESIDENT OBAMA SUCCEED

WHERE OTHER DEMOCRATS HAD

FAILED WHEN CONGRESS

PASSED HIS AFFORDABLE CARE

ACT, KNOWN AS OBAMACARE.

OVER AND OVER, THE

PRESIDENT TOLD LEERY

AMERICANS --

President Obama: IF

YOU LIKE THE PLAN YOU

HAVE, YOU CAN KEEP IT.

IF YOU LIKE THE DOCTOR YOU

HAVE, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR

DOCTOR, TOO.

THE ONLY CHANGE YOU'LL SEE

IS FALLING COSTS AS OUR

REFORMS TAKE HOLD.

Jennifer: BUT THEY

PROVED TO BE PROMISES HE

WOULDN'T KEEP.

THEY CALLED IT "THE LIE OF

THE YEAR."

MILLIONS WILL LOSE THEIR

EMPLOYER-BASED PLANS.

MANY CAN'T KEEP THEIR

DOCTORS WITHOUT PAYING

MORE.

AND PREMIUMS FOR PEOPLE

PURCHASING COVERAGE IN THE

INDIVIDUAL MARKET HAVE

GONE UP SUBSTANTIALLY.

THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT

THE COUNTRY WOULD

EXPERIENCE A REDUCTION IN

HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS,

AND AMERICAN FAMILIES

TYPICALLY WOULD SEE A

$2500 REDUCTION ON AN

ANNUAL BASIS IN THEIR

PREMIUMS.

NONE OF THIS APPEARS TO BE

TRUE.

Jennifer: THERE ARE

POPULAR PARTS OF

OBAMACARE, LIKE NOT

PENALIZING PATIENTS FOR

PREEXISTING CONDITIONS,

AND ALLOWING YOUNG ADULTS

TO STAY ON THEIR PARENTS'

PLANS LONGER.

BUT CRITICS SAY THE

NEGATIVES FAR OUTWEIGH THE

NEGATIVES.

IT PROBABLY WOULD HAVE

BEEN SIMPLER AND CHEAPER

TO GIVE EVERYBODY MONEY TO

BUY INSURANCE.

Jennifer: THE

PRESIDENT OVERSEES THE

DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS'

AFFAIRS THAT ACCORDING TO

A NEW REPORT STILL SUFFERS

FROM PROFOUND DEFICIENCIES

IN DELIVERING HEALTH CARE

TO MILLIONS OF AMERICANS.

THIS IS TWO YEARS AFTER

THE WAIT-TIME SCANDAL,

WHEN AS MANY AS 40

VETERANS DIED WHILE

AWAITING CARE AT A V.A.

HOSPITAL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS RELIED

ON MORE GOVERNMENT

REGULATIONS AND HIS

EXECUTIVE POWERS TO PUSH

HIS AGENDA.

INSTEAD OF REDUCING

REGULATIONS, IT HAS BEEN A

REGULATORY TSUNAMI.

HE HAS OBAMACARE, ENDLESS

REGULATIONS, AND ALSO

INCREASES IN FUTURE TAXES

AND SPENDING.

HE HAS GOT DODD-FRANK,

WHICH IS INCREASED

REGULATIONS ON THE

FINANCIAL COMMUNITY.

Jennifer: HE HAS

ISSUED 242 EXECUTIVE

ORDERS, ON EVERYTHING FROM

ABORTION TO WAGES.

ONE THAT DREW INTENSE

CONTROVERSY SHIELDED

MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS FROM

DEPORTATION, AND MADE THEM

ELIGIBLE FOR WORK PERMITS

WITHOUT APPROVAL FROM

CONGRESS.

THE SUPREME COURT

ESSENTIALLY STRUCK IT DOWN

BY KICKING IT BACK TO A

LOWER COURT, WHICH IT

ALREADY RULED THE

PRESIDENT DOESN'T HAVE THE

AUTHORITY TO TAKE THAT

ACTION.

ONE OF THE ISSUES AT

THE FOREFRONT FOR MANY

CONSERVATIVES IS THAT THIS

WAS A BLATENT VIOLATION OF

THE SEPARATION OF POWERS.

Jennifer: THEY ISSUED

A LETTER OF GUIDANCE TO

PUBLIC SCHOOLS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, TELLING THEM THEY

MUST ALLOW TRANSGENDER

STUDENTS TO USE BATHROOMS

AND LOCKER ROOMS THAT

MATCH THEIR IDENTITY.

THE CONTROVERSY IS STILL

BREWING.

HOW THE PRESIDENT FEELS

ABOUT HIS AUTHORITY TO

WRITE LAWS CANNOT CHANGE

THE FACT THAT THE

CONSTITUTION LEAVES THAT

POWER TO CONGRESS.

Jennifer: AS THE

PRESIDENT WRAPS UP HIS

TIME IN THE WHITE HOUSE,

IT IS CLEAR HE HAS MADE

GOOD ON ONE OF HIS

CAMPAIGN PROMISES: HE HAS

CHANGED AMERICA.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THERE

WAS A BOOK JONATHAN SWIFT

WROTE YEARS AGO CALLED

"GULLIVER'S TRAVELS."

AND ONE OF THE ADVENTURES

OF GULLIVER WAS TO COME

INTO THE LAND OF THE

PEOPLE KNOWN AS THE

LILAPUSHANS.

AND GULLIVER WAS ON THE

BEACH, AND THEY CAME AND

THEY HAD ALL OF THESE

ROPES THEY TIED ON THIS

GIANT.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS WITH

AMERICA.

THIS IS A GIANT ECONOMY.

AND IT IS BEING HELD DOWN

BY THIS LILAPUSHANS.

YOU CANNOT BELIEVE HOW

MANY REGULATIONS THERE ARE

THAT RESTRICT THINGS.

THE CORE OF ENGINEERS AND

THE E.P.A. HAVE JUST RUN

AMUCK WITH THIS WETLANDS

PROJECT.

THEY HAVE DONE THINGS THAT

ARE ABSOLUTELY INSANE IN

RELATION TO SOME DESERT

RAT, OR WHAT HAVE YOU.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE WHAT

THEY HAVE DONE.

THEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

RESTRICTIONS BEING PUT ON

HIRING FOR BUSINESS.

THEY WANT TO PUT IN A MUCH

HIGHER MINIMUM WAGE, BUT

WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS

DESTROYING THE ECONOMY.

WE HAVE AS MUCH AS

93 MILLION PEOPLE UNDER

EMPLOYED OR UNEMPLOYED.

AND THEY SAY WE HAVE THE

JOB MARKET THAT HAS HEATED

UP, BUT THE PEOPLE WHO

HAVEN'T GOT GOOD JOBS ARE

THOSE WHO ARE TECHNICALLY

COMPETENT IN FLIPPING

HAMBURGERS.

THEY'RE UNDEREMPLOYED.

THE PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN IT

IN THE NECK, AND THEY FEEL

IT.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IS,

THERE IS A TSUNAMI GOING

ON OF REBELLION AGAINST

THESE DRACONIAN

REGULATIONS THAT DON'T

WORK.

THEY'RE SPENDING HUGE

AMOUNTS OF MONEY AND THEY

DON'T WORK.

THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO

MAKE A DECISION: DO WE

WANT FOUR MORE YEARS OF

THIS STUFF?

THAT'S THE DECISION

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

MAKE.

BUT WE'LL BRING YOU

ANOTHER SERIES IN THIS

PARTICULAR EPISODE SO YOU

CAN GET BEFORE YOU SOME OF

THE THINGS OF THIS

SCORECARD.

AND IT DOESN'T LOOK VERY

PRETTY.

WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, A

MOTHER RUSHES TO THE

EMERGENCY ROOM AFTER HER

TEENAGED SON IS THE SOLE

SURVIVOR OF AN ACCIDENT.

I CAN ONLY READ HIS

EYES BECAUSE HIS FACE WAS

SO DISFIGURED.

HE WAS SAYING, MAMA, AM I

GOING TO DIE?

I WAS IN SHOCK.

I WAS NUMB.

IT DIDN'T SEEM REAL.

Wendy: HEAR HOW A

SUPER NATURAL VISITATION

HELPS THIS YOUNG MAN

BECOME A MIRACLE.

Wendy: ONE NIGHT IN

THE SUMMER OF 1999, DIANE

WAS HAVING TROUBLE

SLEEPING.

THE WORD "ACCIDENT" KEPT

SWIRLING AROUND IN HER

MIND.

SUDDENLY HER PHONE RANG,

AND SOON SHE UNDERSTOOD

EXACTLY WHAT WAS GOING ON.

THE BOY SEATED IN BACK

WAS SEVERELY INJURED, BUT

MAY BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE

ENOUGH TO EXPLAIN WHAT

HAPPENED.

Reporter: JULY 1,

1999, A DRUNK DRIVER

CROSSES OVER THE MEDIAN

AND SLAMS INTO A CAR OF

TEENAGERS AT 80 MILES PER

HOUR.

THERE IS ONE SURVIVOR.

MEANWHILE, DIANE GIRLIE IS

STRUGGLING TO SLEEP

BECAUSE SHE FELT A

PROMPTING FROM GOD.

I JUST SAW THE ONE

WORD, "ACCIDENT."

AND I FELT IT WAS SOMEONE

VERY CLOSE TO ME.

Reporter: MOMENTS

LATER, DIANE GETS A CALL

FROM RIVERSIDE HOSPITAL.

HER 18-YEAR-OLD SON, J.R.,

WAS IN A TRAGIC ACCIDENT.

I WAS IN SHOCK.

I WAS NUMB.

I MEAN, I WAS -- IT DIDN'T

SEEM REAL.

Reporter: DIANE

ARRIVED AT THE E.R. JUST

AS HER SON WAS REGAINING

CONSCIOUSNESS.

I COULD ONLY READ HIS

EYES BECAUSE HIS FACE WAS

SO DISFIGURED.

HE WAS SAYING, MAMA, AM I

GOING TO DIE.

SHE SAID, BABY, YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO DIE.

GOD SAID THAT YOU'RE GOING

TO LIVE AND DECLARE THE

WORK OF THE LORD.

Reporter: J.R. HAD A

HOST OF INJURIES,

INCLUDING BRAIN SWELLING,

A SHATTERED JAWBONE, AND A

CRUSHED LEFT HAND.

THEY SAID, HE MAY NOT

MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT.

I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT

THESE WORDS WERE COMING TO

ME, WERE BEING SAID TO ME.

I JUST -- AND I WAS SAYING

ON THE INSIDE, LORD, SAVE

MY CHILD.

DON'T LET HIM DIE.

Reporter: WORD

QUICKLY SPREAD, AND PEOPLE

FROM THEIR CHURCH AND

COMMUNITY BEGAN SHOWING UP

TO PRAY.

THEY WAS JUST HUDDLED

AROUND SAYING, HE'S NOT

GOING TO DIE.

GOD'S NOT GOING TO TAKE

HIM.

AND THEY WERE PRAYING.

Reporter: J.R. MADE

IT THROUGH THE NIGHT.

THE NEXT MORNING HE WENT

THROUGH EIGHT HOURS OF

SURGERY.

DOCTORS SAID J.R. WOULD

LIVE, BUT HIS FUTURE

WASN'T HOPEFUL.

I WOULD DEFINITELY HAVE

SOME BRAIN DAMAGE.

I WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO

REGAIN THE USE OF MY HAND.

THAT I WOULD HAVE TROUBLE

SPEAKING.

AND I WOULD PROBABLY HAVE

TO HAVE SOMEONE AID ME OR

HELP ME FOR THE REST OF MY

LIFE.

Reporter: A WEEK

LATER J.R. POURED OUT HIS

ANGER TOWARDS GOD.

HOW COULD YOU ALLOW

THIS TO HAPPEN?

HOW COULD YOU LET THIS

HAPPEN?

I WAS HONEST WITH HIM.

I DON'T WANT TO LIVE LIKE

THIS.

I DON'T WANT TO LIVE LIKE

THIS.

I REMEMBER FEELING THE

PRESENCE OF THE LORD JUST

COME IN MY ROOM.

THE HOLY SPIRIT TOLD ME

THAT HE WAS GOING TO HEAL

ME.

AND IN DOING SO, IT WOULD

BE LIKE NOTHING EVER

HAPPENED.

HOPE AND PEACE CAME

FLOODING BACK INTO MY

SPIRIT LITERALLY.

I WAS REVIVED.

AT THAT MOMENT I DECIDED I

WAS NOT GOING TO BE ANK

GREEANGRYAND I WOULD TRUST HIM,

THAT HE WAS GOING TO DO

WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO.

Reporter: J.R. SAID

AFTER THAT NIGHT, HE BEGAN

HEALING MORE QUICKLY THAN

EVEN DOCTORS EXPECTED.

MY BODY BEGAN TO PUT

THINGS BACK IN ORDER.

EVERY DAY THERE WAS A

VISIBLE CHANGE.

YOU COULD SEE IT.

Reporter: THE NEXT

SEVERAL MONTHS, HE WENT

THROUGH RIGOROUS THERAPY,

DEPENDING ON GOD TO HEAL

THIS MIND AND BODY.

I FELT LITERALLY LIKE

THE LORD WAS STRENGTHENING

ME.

I FELT LIKE I HAD A NEW

LEASE ON LIFE AND A NEW

MISSION.

AND I WAS DETERMINED TO

HOLD UP MY END.

I WAS DETERMINED TO SERVE

GOD.

Reporter: WITHIN THE

NEXT YEAR, J.R. SAYS HE

FULLY RECOVERED FROM ALL

OF HIS INJURIES, INCLUDING

REGAINING FULL USE OF HIS

HAND.

THERE IS NOT ANYTHING

THAT I COULD DO THEN THAT

I CANNOT DO.

GOD HEALED ME.

Reporter: TODAY J.R.

LEADS A YOUNG ADULT

MINISTRY IN HIS HOME TOWN

AND SHARES HIS STORY

OFTEN.

GOD ANSWERED ALL OF MY

PRAYERS.

AND HE IS FAITHFUL.

EVERY NOW AND THEN I

LAUGH BECAUSE PEOPLE LOOK

RIGHT AT ME, AND

UNKNOWINGLY THEY REPEAT

THE PROMISE THAT THE LORD

GAVE ME.

AND THEY TELL ME, MAN, IT

LOOKS LIKE NOTHING EVER

HAPPENED.

AND I SAID, THAT'S EXACTLY

ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF

THE LORD.

Wendy: IT LOOKS LIKE

NOTHING EVER HAPPENED TO

HIM, AND THAT IS THE

TRUTH.

THAT WAS A TRUE MIRACLE.

GOD LOVES TO DO MIRACLES

TODAY.

AND HE WANTS TO DO

MIRACLES IN YOUR LIFE.

WE HAVE SOME PRAISE

REPORTS HERE, PAT.

Pat: GO AHEAD.

Wendy: THIS IS FOR

MORE THAN 30 YEARS, ANGELA

SUFFERED SEVERE MIGRAINES.

SHE EXPERIENCED THREE TO

FOUR MIGRAINES EACH WEEK.

THE DOCTORS COULDN'T HELP.

ONE DAY ANGELA WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND SHE HEARD YOU, PAT,

GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, IT IS LIKE THROU THERE

IS A BAND AROUND YOUR

HEAD, SQUEEZING YOU.

AND YOU'RE CRYING OUT IN

PAIN.

AFTER THIS, SHE SAID SHE

FELT CHILLS FROM HER HEAD

TO HER FEET AND SHE HAS

NEVER HAD ANOTHER

MIGRAINE.

Pat: WE LIVE IN A

LITTLE TINY PLANET IN THE

MIDDLE OF A GIGANTIC

UNIVERSE.

AND THE GOD WE SERVED

CREATED IT ALL.

AND SOMEHOW HE LISTENS TO

US.

WITH ALL OF THE STUFF HE'S

GOT GOING -- HE'S GOT TO

LOOK AFTER ALL OF THESE

PLANETS AND GALAXIES AND

SOLAR SYSTEMS AND STARS

AND ALL OF THESE THINGS,

BUT HE LISTENS TO US.

AND HE WILL HEAR OUR

PRAYER.

WITH HIM, IT IS NOTHING.

ALL HE'S GOT TO O DO IS

REACH OUT AND SAY A WORD

AND IT'S DONE.

LIKE CORNELIUS -- LIKE THE

CENTURIAN SAID, JUST SPEAK

THE WORD AND IT WILL BE

HEALED.

ALL HE HAS TO DO IS JUST

SPEAK THE WORD AND IT IS

DONE.

WE DON'T HAVE TO SAY IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

WE SHOWED A YOUNG MAN THAT

WAS IMPOSSIBLE -- HE

SHOULD HAVE EITHER DIED OR

GONE THROUGH THE REST OF

HIS LIFE PARALYZED, BUT

BECAUSE OF GOD IT DIDN'T

HAPPEN.

OKAY.

HERE IS SOMEBODY NAMED

ELOUISE IN EDMUND,

OKLAHOMA.

SHE HAD OVERACTIVE

BLADDER.

IT IS LIFE-ALTERING.

AND SHE HAD A COUPLE OF

SURGERIES THAT DIDN'T DO

ANY GOOD.

WENDY SAID, QUOTE,"YOU'RE

HAVING BLADDER PROBLEMS

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU."

AND SHE WAS HEALED

IMMEDIATELY.

Wendy: PRAISE GOD.

Pat: YOU DON'T KNOW

ELOUISE IN OKLAHOMA?

Wendy: NO.

I'M SURE SHE IS A VERY

NICE LADY.

Pat: WITH BLADDER

PROBLEMS.

I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THOSE

GUYS.

WE DON'T KNOW.

BUT GOD KNOWS.

HE IS IN CHARGE OF

EVERYTHING.

NOW WHY DON'T YOU LET HIM

DO THE WORK THAT HE SAYS.

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

WITH MEN, IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS AND WE'RE GOING

TO AGREE TOGETHER FOR YOU,

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

THIS COULD BE THE DAY.

SO PREPARE FOR A MIRACLE.

> FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

LET THE ANOINTING FLOW

LIKE RIVERS OF OIL COMING

DOWN FROM ON HIGH,

TOUCHING PEOPLE'S LIVES.

THERE IS A MITRO VALVE

PROLAPSE THAT SOMEBODY HAS

IN THEIR HEART, AND GOD

HAS JUST HEALED THAT.

YOUR HEART IS GOING TO BE

PUMPING NORMALLY.

THE BLOOD FLOW AND THE

EJECTION FRACTION IS GOING

TO BE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

IN THE NAME OF JESUS RIGHT

NOW.

TERRY IS RECEIVING

SOMETHING IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: JENNIFER,

YOU'RE BEING HEALED RIGHT

NOW OF CYSTIC FIBROSIS.

AND GOD IS TOUCHING PEOPLE

WITH BROKEN HEARTS TODAY.

HE IS SAYING THIS SEASON

WILL END, DO NOT LOSE

HOPE, AND TO START

REJOICING BECAUSE THE JOY

OF THE LORD IS RETURNING

TO YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS A

CRUSHED HIP.

YOU FELL AND YOU DAMAGED

YOURSELF.

RIGHT NOW THERE IS HEALING

TAKING PLACE.

THE BONES ARE COMING

TOGETHER AND THE PAIN WILL

LEAVE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

IT WILL BE LIKE A MIRACLE.

THERE ARE THOSE IN THIS

AUDIENCE WHO HAVE CANCER

AND EMPHYSEMA, AND ALL OF

THESE THINGS.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

ASK HIM, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH,

BE MADE WHOLE.

WENDY, DO YOU HAVE

ANYTHING ELSE?

Wendy: I JUST BELIEVE

GOD WANTS TO HEAL CANCER

TODAY.

ANY KIND OF CANCER.

JUST REACH OUT AND RECEIVE

YOUR HEALING RIGHT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS NOTHING --

NOTHING TOO HARD FOR GOD.

Pat: GIVE HIM THE

GLORY.

RAISE YOUR HANDS AND THANK

HIM AND PRAISE HIM.

AND PLEASE CALL US.

WE WERE LOVE TO HEAR THE

ANSWERS TO PRAYER.

AND WE ARE ALSO DELIGHTED

WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

SO IF YOU NEED MORE

PRAYER, WE'RE HERE FOR

YOU.

THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS ON

YOUR SCREEN:

1-800-759-0700.

LET'S JUST GIVE HIM A

SHOUT OF PRAISE.

Wendy: COMING UP, A

"Q" AND "A" SESSION WITH

PAT.

MARIA SAYS, "MY EX-HUSBAND

LEFT ME FOR ANOTHER WOMAN.

AM I ABLE TO REMARRY

BECAUSE I WAS ABANDONED,

OR WOULD THIS BE

CONSIDERED ADULTERY?"

ANOTHER ROUND OF "BRING IT

ON" IS RIGHT AROUND THE

CORNER, SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

ATHEISM WILL BE ADVERTISED

AT THE UPCOMING REPUBLICAN

NATIONAL CONVENTION, BUT A

POPULAR CHRISTIAN FILM

WILL NOT BE.

AN ADVERTISING COMPANY FOR

THE R.N.C. REFUSED TO

APPROVED A BILLBOARD FOR

THE FILM "GOD'S NOT DEAD

TWO."

THEY CALLED THE BILLBOARD

TOO POLITICAL AND WAY TOO

INCENDIARY.

IT WOULD HAVE FEATURED

ACTRESS MELISSA JOAN HART

AND A QUOTE FROM THE

MOVIE.

THEY TOLD PUREFLIX, THE

DISTRIBUTOR OF THE FILM,

THAT EVEN THE TITLE OF THE

FILM WAS PROBLEMATIC.

THAT MADE ROOM FOR THE

FREEDOM FOR RELIGION

FOUNDATION'S BILLBOARD

WHICH SAID, "I'M AN

ATHEIST AND I VOTE."

LGBT HISTORY IS CREEPING

CLOSER TO CALIFORNIA CLASS

ROOMS.

THEY ARE MOVING TO PASS A

LAW ON THURSDAY REQUIRING

PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO TEACH

THE LGBT CURRICULUM.

THEY WOULD DISCUSS

CHANGING GENDER IDENTITY

IN THE 18th AND 19th

CENTURY, AND CELEBRATE

PROMINENT GAY PEOPLE.

THE BILL ALSO FORBIDS ANY

CLASSROOM MATERIALS THAT

COULD REFLECT ADVERSELY ON

GAYS.

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

CRIEMP

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

AND WE'RE GOING TO START

WITH MARIA, WHO WRITES IN,

"I HAVE BEEN DIVORCED FOR

EIGHT YEARS BECAUSE MY EX

SAID THAT HE HAD A VISION

HE WAS GOING TO MARRY

ANOTHER WOMAN, WHICH HE

DID.

I AM STILL HEARTBROKEN

BECAUSE I STOOD BY HIM

WHEN HE WAS ACCUSED OF

SEXUALLY ABUSING HIS

ADOPTIVE DAUGHTER.

I WAS HIS THIRD MARRIAGE,

AND HE WAS MY FIRST, AND

WE HAVE AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD

CHILD TOGETHER.

I DON'T BELIEVE IN

MARRYING MORE THAN ONCE.

DOES GOD HONOR THE

MARRIAGES OF PEOPLE THAT

DO THIS?

AM I ABLE REMARRY SINCE I

WAS ABANDONED OR IS IT

ADULTERY?"

Pat: IF THE

UNBELIEVING SPOUSE IS

PLEASED TO DEPART, LET HIM

DEPART.

THE BROTHER OR SISTER IS

NOT BOUND IN THAT CASE.

THIS GUY IS OBVIOUSLY AN

UNBELIEVER.

IT SOUNDS LIKE HE IS A

LITTLE SCREWY.

NEVERTHELESS, HE HAS LEFT,

SO YOU'RE FREE.

IF YOU WANT TO, YOU CAN

GET MARRIED AGAIN.

THAT IS NOT ADULTERY.

IT IS IN THE BIBLE AND IT

IS A CLEAR PRIVILEGE.

Wendy: KATHRYN SAYS,

"WHERE DOES THE PEOPLE SAY

THAT JESUS DESCENDED INTO

HELL FOR THREE DAYS AFTER

HE WAS CRUCIFIED?

WHY AND WHAT HAPPENED?

SOME SAY HE FREED MOST OF

THE PEOPLE THERE.

THIS IS ALL NEW TO ME."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

HE LED THE CAPTIVE.

HERE IS WHAT IT SAYS: "FOR

CHRIST SUFFERED FOR OUR

SINS, THE RIGHTEOUS FOR

THE UNRIGHTEOUS, TO BRING

YOU TO GOD.

HE WAS PUT TO DEATH IN THE

BODY, BUT MADE ALIVE IN

THE SPIRIT.

AFTER BEING MADE ALIVE, HE

WENT AND MADE PROCLAMATION

TO THE IMPRISONED SPIRITS,

TO THOSE WHO WERE

DISOBEDIENT LONG AGO, WHEN

GOD WAITED PATIENTLY AFTER

THE ARK."

AND SO FORTH.

AND HE TALKS ABOUT JESUS,

WHO BY THE SPIRIT IN WHICH

HE WAS RAISED FROM THE

DEAD, AND THEN HE WENT AND

PREACHED TO THE SPIRITS.

AND THE IDEA IS THAT THE

PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE

CHRIST HAD A CHANCE TO

HEAR THE GOSPEL AND TO BE

SAVED.

THAT'S WHAT PETER TELLS

US.

Wendy: INTERESTING.

BETH SAYS, "MY HUSBAND AND

I ARE NEWLYWEDS AND WE'RE

EXPECTING OUR FIRST BABY

IN SEPTEMBER.

THIS SPARKS SOMETHING

SERIOUS FOR US.

BOTH OF US ARE DIFFERENT

DENOMINATIONS.

AND I REALLY LOVE MY

CHURCH.

WHILE HE SELDOM GOES TO

CHURCH.

WE HAVEN'T REALLY DECIDED

WHAT CHURCH TO GO TO.

MY SIDE OF THE FAMILY IS

PUSHING FOR US TO GO TO A

CHURCH IN MY DENOMINATION,

BUT THEY ARE ONLY

CONFUSING ME.

DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE?"

Pat: THE QUESTION IS:

WHERE IS THE GOSPEL

PREACHED?

WHERE IS THE BIBLE

HONORED?

AND WHERE IS A FELLOWSHIP

WHERE THEY LOVE ONE

ANOTHER AND ARE WORKING

TOGETHER IN HARMONY?

THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT.

YOU DON'T WANT A CHURCH

THAT HAS ALL KINDS OF

DIVISION AND BACK BITING

AND SLANDER AND SO FORTH.

AND YOU DON'T WANT

SOMEBODY WHO DISHONORS THE

WORD OF GOD.

YOU'VE GOT TO USE A

CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

DISCERNMENT TO FIND OUT.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE THE

ONE WITH THE RELIGIOUS

IMPETUS, AND SO I THINK IN

THIS ONE YOU CAN TAKE THE

LEAD.

Wendy: MELINA SAYS,

"DO YOU HAVE TO BE

BAPTIZED TO ENTER THE

KINGDOM OF GOD?

WHAT IF SOMEONE IS NOT

BAPTIZED BUT IS A

BELIEVER?

WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM?"

WE KEEP GETTING THIS

QUESTION, PAT.

Pat: WHEN A PERSON IS

BAPTIZED, IT IS SUPPOSED

TO BE THE REGENERATING

FACTOR.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID, GOD

DIDN'T CALL ME TO BAPTIZE

BUT TO PREACH THE GOSPEL.

I DID BAPTIZE SOME ALONG

THE WAY, BUT MY MAIN GOAL

WAS TO PREACH THE GOSPEL.

IF BAPTISM WAS SO

IMPORTANT, HE WOULD HAVE

BEEN OUT THERE BAPTIZING

PEOPLE.

I THINK WHAT BRINGS YOU TO

THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS YOUR

LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST.

YOU SURRENDER TO HIM.

THAT SETS THE TRUTH IN

YOUR LIFE.

YOU'RE BURIED WITH HIM IN

BAPTISM AND RAISED IN

UNISON OF LIFE.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT I

THINK IS FOR EVERY

BELIEVER AND SHOULD BE

DONE AS AN ACT OF

OBEDIENCE.

BUT THE FACT THAT YOU

HAVEN'T BEEN BAPTIZED, IN

MY OPINION, IS NOT GOING

TO KEEP YOU OUT OF HEAVEN.

> THANK YOU FOR THOSE

QUESTIONS.

Wendy: AND SILENT

ANSWERS.

THANK YOU, PAT.

> STILL TO COME, A

FOUR-YEAR FELON WHO

EMBARKED ON A LIFETIME OF

CRIME.

I WAS ARRESTED EVERY

YEAR OF MY LIFE FROM THE

AGE OF 14 TO 28.

Wendy: WATCH WHAT

FINALLY SET HIM STRAIGHT,

WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: YOU'VE HEARD OF

SO-CALLED CAREER

CRIMINALS.

WELL, WE'VE GOT A CASE FOR

YOU TODAY.

DAVID VINCENT HAD A RAP

SHEET AS THICK OF A BOOK.

MOSTLY BECAUSE HE GOT

STARTED THE AT AN EARLY

AGE.

HE STARTED STEALING AT A

TIME WHEN OTHER KIDS WERE

LEARNING THEIR A.B.C.s.

UNFORTUNATELY, DAVID, WHEN

HE GOT OLDER, COULDN'T

STOP, UNTIL HE WAS THROWN

IN JAIL, AND BEGAN STARING

AT A 15-YEAR SENTENCE.

I WAS FOUR YEARS OLD.

I GOT MY PARENTS KICKED

OUT OF A TRAILER PARK

BECAUSE I WAS RUNNING

AROUND THE TRAILER PARK,

STEALING THINGS FROM THE

PARK.

WE MOVED TO A TOWNHOME,

AND AFTER THAT, I WAS

RUNNING AROUND STEALING

PEOPLE'S MAIL OUT OF THEIR

MAILBOXES AND STORING IT

UP.

AND THEY KICKED MY PARENTS

OUT FOR THAT.

Reporter: DAVID

LEARNED TO STEAL FROM A

VERY UNLIKELY PERSON, HIS

MOTHER.

GROWING UP, I WOULD SEE

HER STEAL A LOT OF TIMES

IN FRONT OF ME.

I WOULD SEE HER SHOP

LIFTING.

AS A SMALL BOY, I WOULD

SEE HER CHANGING TAGS IN

STORES.

Reporter: AS A

TEENAGER, HE CONTINUED TO

STEAL.

IT WAS ALMOST LIKE WHEN

I WAS STEALING AND DOING

THAT, I WAS IN CONTROL.

AND IT GAVE ME SOME FORM

OF CONTROL EN MY MESSED-UP

WORLD.

Reporter: BY THIS

TIME, EVERYONE NEW DAVID

AS THE BAD KID.

I STARTED STEALING

BIKES AND IT JUST GOT

WORSE AND WORSE AND WORSE.

I WAS ARRESTED EVERY YEAR

OF MY LIFE FROM THE AGE OF

14 TO 28.

Reporter: AND DAVID

ALSO STARTED DRINKING AND

USING DRUGS.

I FEEL LIKE I DID IT TO

COVER THE PAIN.

ANY DRUG THEY HAD AROUND,

IT WAS MARIJUANA, COCAINE,

ACID, ECSTASY -- ANYTHING

THAT WAS AROUND, I PRETTY

MUCH DID.

Reporter: IN 1988,

DAVID GOT MARRIED.

WE WERE TWO BROKEN

PEOPLE, AND I WAS THE MOST

BROKEN.

AND, OF COURSE, I PUT HER

THROUGH A LOT BECAUSE I

WAS IN JAIL EVERY SINGLE

YEAR.

WE BOTH ABUSED DRUGS.

WE BUILT A FAMILY AND HAD

THREE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS.

WE WERE MARRIED EIGHT

YEARS.

Reporter: DAVID SAYS

DURING THIS TIME OF HIS

LIFE, HE PUT GOD ON A

SHELF.

I KNEW HE WAS REAL, BUT

I WAS RUNNING A MILLION

MILES AN HOUR AWAY FROM

HIM.

I WAS ALWAYS CHASING THE

THINGS OF THE WORLD,

CHASING MONEY, AND TRYING

TO KILL THE PAIN.

BUT I NEVER REALLY TURNED

TO GOD, EXCEPT IN SMALL

WAYS, I WOULD PRAY WHEN I

NEEDED HIM.

IT WAS THE JAILHOUSE

STUFF, LIKE, LORD, PLEASE

GET ME OUT.

I'LL CHANGE.

BUT I NEVER DID.

Reporter: THEN ONE

NIGHT IN JAIL, DAVID WAS

FACING 15 YEARS FOR

SEVERAL FELONIES.

HE WAS ON HIS KNEES,

THINKING ABOUT HIS THREE

LITTLE GIRLS.

THEY WERE AGES SIX,

FOUR, AND ONE.

AND I KNEW I'M GOING TO BE

IN PRISON A LONG TIME.

I'M GOING TO WALK OUT OF

THE DOORS AND THEY'RE

GOING TO BE GRADUATING

FROM HIGH SCHOOL.

IT WAS JUST SO HARD FOR

ME.

I BEGAN CRYING OUT,

BEGGING GOD TO PLEASE

FORGIVE ME FOR ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT I HAD DONE,

FOR THE DRUG ABUSE, FROM

RUNNING FROM HIM, FOR

BECOMING A THIEF, AND FOR

THE MAN I HAD BECOME.

Reporter: AT THAT

MOMENT, DAVID ASKED JESUS

CHRIST TO BE THE LORD OF

HIS LIFE.

WHAT I HEARD GOD SAY

WAS, DAVID, EVERYTHING IS

GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

I'M GOING TO HAVE MERCY ON

YOU AND DELIVER YOU OUT OF

ALL OF THESE CHARGES.

I FELT THE PRESENCE OF GOD

IN THAT LITTLE CELL, ON

THAT JAIL CELL FLOOR.

AND I JUST BEGAN WEEPING

FOR JOY.

THE TEARS OF PAIN, ALL AT

ONCE TURNED INTO TEARS OF

JOY.

AND I BEGAN CRYING BECAUSE

I KNEW THE LORD HAD SPOKE

TO ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT HE WAS

GOING TO DO OR HOW HE WAS

GOING TO DO IT, BUT HE HAD

SPEC TO ME.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

ALL OF DAVID'S CHARGES

WERE REDUCED TO A SINGLE

FELONY.

WHEN HE WAS FINALLY

RELEASED FROM PRISON, HE

JOINED A CHURCH.

AND IN 1999 HE OPENED THE

WARRIOR CENTER, A RECOVERY

CENTER FOR MEN.

JUST AS HIS GIRLS NEED A

FATHER, DAVID SAYS WE ALL

NEED OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.

WE GET A MILLION MILES

FROM GOD, BUT WE CAN

ALWAYS COME HOME.

THE LORD IS THERE WAITING,

FIGHTING FOR US.

HE IS WAITING FOR US TO

GIVE HIM OUR HEARTS AND

LET HIM WORK IN OUR LIFE.

LIVES.

Pat: I THINK THERE IS

A FAMILY CURSE -- I THINK

THAT DAVID'S MOTHER WAS A

THIEF, AND THERE MAY HAVE

BEEN A SPIRIT OF EVIL IN

THAT FAMILY.

WHO KNOWS WHAT ABOUT HER

MOTHER AND THEN THE MOTHER

BEFORE THAT, AND HOW LONG

DID IT GO?

BUT HE WAS OVERCOME BY

DEMONIC POWER.

AND HE DIDN'T REALIZE IT.

AND NOBODY IS TALKING

ABOUT DEMONS, BUT,

NEVERTHELESS, THERE WAS A

CURSE THAT WAS ON THAT

FAMILY THAT WENT FROM

GENERATION TO GENERATION.

A LITTLE KID DOESN'T JUST

GO STEAL AND TAKE PEOPLE'S

MAIL AND DO ALL OF THAT

HORRIBLE STUFF.

THAT IS REALLY BAD.

THERE WAS SOMETHING INSIDE

THAT WAS CAUSING HIM TO DO

ALL OF THAT.

GOD SAW THAT AND REALIZED

THAT DAVID HAD BEEN

CAPTURED.

YOU KNOW, PEOPLE GET

CAPTURED.

SATAN CAPTURES PEOPLE.

HE TAKES THEM.

AND WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE

THAT THOSE PEOPLE DON'T SO

MUCH NEED TO BE PUNISHED

AS TO BE SET FREE.

IT LIKE A TERRIBLE VIRUS,

AND THEY NEED TO GET SET

FREE FROM IT.

AND PEOPLE IN THIS

SOCIETY, ALL AROUND, HAVE

HAD THIS EXPERIENCE, AND

THEY DON'T REALIZE WHAT

HAS HAPPENED TO THEM.

BUT THERE IS A COMPULSION,

A SEX COMPULSION OR A

GREED COMPULSION OR A

HATRED COMPULSION, AND

IT'S JUST THERE ALL OF THE

TIME, AND THEY SAY, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING

ON WITH ME.

WELL, YOU CAN INHERIT

THOSE THINGS.

AND THERE IS A CURSE THAT

GOES FROM GENERATION TO

GENERATION.

SO I THINK IN HIS CASE, HE

WAS SET FREE.

NOW, HE TALKED TO THE

LORD.

HE WAS ON HIS KNEES,

CRYING OUT TO GOD.

AND YOU NEED TO DO THE

SAME THING.

HE REALLY FINALLY FACED UP

TO IT.

AND ALTHOUGH IT WAS AN

EXTERNAL FORCE, HE DIDN'T

GET A PASS JUST BECAUSE HE

STOLE UNDER THE INFLUENCE

OF A DEMONIC SPIRIT.

AND THE SAME THING WITH

YOU.

IF YOU'VE BEEN SINNING

AGAINST GOD, YOU NEED TO

ASK FORGIVENESS.

AND YOU NEED TO COME TO

HIM AND SAY, GOD, SET ME

FREE.

AND IN DAVID'S CASE, IT

WAS A BRILLIANT

DELIVERANCE, WHAT HAPPENED

TO HIM.

CALL.

SOMEBODY IS HERE AND WILL

BE DELIGHTED TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

YOU CAN CALL UPON THE NAME

OF THE LORD.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

MATTHEW 21: "AND WHATEVER

THINGS YOU ASK IN PRAYER,

BELIEVING, YOU WILL

RECEIVE."

> TOMORROW AN EVANGELIST

REMEMBERS THE YEARS HE

SPENT LIVING THE GAY

LIFESTYLE.

MY GOODNESS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THAT.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US

HERE AT CBN, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

AND WE WILL BE BACK

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
