Efrem: COMING UP

UP...

THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY

NEW INFORMATION.

Efrem: AND IT CAN

HELP YOU WARD OFF THE

COMMON COLD AND CANCER.

THE CHANGES IN THEIR

HEALTH ARE REMARKABLE.

Efrem: PLUS...A DRUG

OVERDOSE NEARLY TURNS

FATAL.

YOU ARE A WALKING DEAD

WOMAN.

Efrem: SEE HOW SHE

SURVIVES.

WE HAVE NO CLUE HOW YOU

ARE ALIVE.

Efrem: AND HERE SHE

IS, THE NEWLY CROWNED MISS

VIRGINIA, LIVE ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

I'M HERE WITH TERRY.

DO YOU KNOW WE HAVE,

INSIDE OF US, A FACTORY OF

LITTLE CREATURES THAT CAN

HELP US FIGHT OFF ALL

KINDS OF AUTOIMMUNE

DISEASES, ALLERGIES,

ASTHMA, AND ALL OF THAT

STUFF.

AND IT'S ALL AVAILABLE TO

US.

AND MOST PEOPLE DON'T EVEN

KNOW IT IS THERE.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY

STUDIES THAT HAVE SHOWN

THAT THE CONDITION OF WHAT

THEY CALL YOUR GUT, IS IN,

CAN IMPACT SO MANY ASPECTS

OF YOUR LIFE.

I TAKE PROBIOTICS, DO YOU?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

I TAKE THE PROS AND THE

PRI'S.

AND ALL KINDS OF STUFF.

SOME OF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES

AND AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE,

INCLUDING, IT LOOKS LIKE,

ALZHEIMER'S AND SOME OF

THESE OTHER DISEASES, ALL

OUT OF THIS BACTERIA.

THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT TO

MOST PEOPLE THAN TALKING

ABOUT DONALD TRUMP BECAUSE

YOUR GUT IS RIGHT WITH

YOU, AND THE CANDIDATES

ARE DOWN THE ROAD.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, DONALD

TRUMP, YESTERDAY, WAS

MAKING A STRONG PROMISE TO

CHRISTIANS.

HE WANTS TO GET RID OF THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT.

HOW HE LEARNED ABOUT THAT,

I HAVE NO IDEA.

BECAUSE I'VE BEEN FIGHTING

THAT THING FOR 20, 30

YEARS.

THAT JOHNSON AMENDMENT

THAT WAS PUT IN BY LYNDON

B. JOHNSON, AND IT FORBIDS

NON-PROFITS FROM ENGAGING

IN POLITICS.

IT HAS BEEN USED AS A CLUB

BY THE I.R.S. TO SILENCE A

VOCAL GROUP OF OUR

CITIZENS.

TERRY?

Terry: TRUMP TALKED

ABOUT THAT PLEDGE

YESTERDAY WHEN HE SPOKE TO

HUNDREDS OF EVANGELICAL

LEADERS IN ORLANDO,

FLORIDA.

CBN'S JENNA BROWDER BRINGS

US THAT STORY, INCLUDING

HER EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

WITH THE REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE.

Reporter: HOW DID IT

GO IN THERE?

I THINK IT REALLY WENT

WELL.

I THINK THE PEOPLE ARE

FANTASTIC.

WE HAD A RECORD CROWD OF

PASTORS, MOSTLY PASTORS,

AND THEIR FAMILIES.

I THINK IT WENT AMAZINGLY

WELL.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP COURTING CHRISTIANS

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

SO I HAD A LONG

POLITICAL SPEECH WRITTEN

AND I READ IT AND I SAID,

THIS IS BORING.

THIS IS NOT WHAT WE WANT

TO TALK ABOUT.

I KNOW A LOT OF THE

PASTORS, I KNOW SOME OF

THE PASTORS IN THE ROOM,

AND I REFUSE TO PUT THEM

TO SLEEP.

Reporter: HE SPOKE

OFF THE CUFF.

DID YOU NOTICE I TOOK

THE TELEPROMPTERS DOWN.

RIGHT?

[APPLAUSE]

NO.

I HAD A SPEECH WRITTEN BY

A PROFESSIONAL, AND I

SAID, I'M NOT READING

THIS.

Reporter: THE CRUX OF

HIS SPEECH, REPEALING THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT.

IF I GET ELECTED

PRESIDENT, ONE OF THE

EARLY THINGS, ONE OF THE

ABSOLUTE FIRST THINGS I'M

GOING TO DO, IS WORK ON

TOTALLY KNOCKING OUT THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: THE 1954

AMENDMENT WAS CREATED BY

THEN SENATOR LYNDON B.

JOHNSON.

IT LIMITS THE FREE SPEECH

OF PASTORS, ESSENTIALLY

THREATENING TO TAKE AWAY A

CHURCH OR NON-PROFIT'S

TAX-EXEMPT STATUS FOR

OPPOSING OR ENDORSING A

POLITICAL CANDIDATE.

THEY GET ABSOLUTELY HIT

WITH THE 501C 3, WHICH IS

A TREMENDOUS HIT.

IT IS A SHATTERING HIT.

AND IT REALLY KEEPS THEM

SILENT.

THEIR FREE SPEECH IS BEING

TAKEN AWAY FROM PEOPLE

THAT ARE GREAT PEOPLE.

FROM PEOPLE THAT ARE

SAYING GOOD THINGS, NOT

BAD THINGS.

IF I CAN DO THAT, I WILL

HAVE DONE A GREAT THING

FOR RELIGION AS A WHOLE,

AND IT'S SO IMPORTANT.

Reporter: AND TRUMP

KNOWS IT IS A MAJOR

SELLING POINT TO GET

CHRISTIANS FROM THE PEWS

TO THE POLLS.

THE WORDS I SAID TODAY

ARE SO IMPORTANT.

I WAS HONORED TO GET THE

KIND OF OVATION I GOT.

BUT THEY UNDERSTAND.

AND I THINK IT WILL BE A

TREMENDOUS ACHIEVEMENT IF

WE CAN GET IT DONE.

AND I KNOW WE'LL GET IT

DONE IF WE CAN GET

ELECTED.

THAT'S WHY I SAY ON

NOVEMBER 8th, EVERYBODY

HAS TO GET OUT AND VOTE.

BECAUSE FOUR YEARS AGO,

THE EVANGELICALS JUST

DIDN'T VOTE.

CHRISTIANS DIDN'T VOTE.

Reporter: TRUMP IS

TRYING TO CHANGE THAT BY

SPEAKING AT EVENTS LIKE

THIS ONE, AND BY SHOWING A

SOFTER, MORE HUMBLE SIDE.

> IN YOUR R.N.C.

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH, YOU

THANKED THE EVANGELICALS

FOR THEIR SUPPORT, AND YOU

SAID, I DON'T NECESSARILY

ALWAYS DESERVE IT.

WHY DID YOU SAY THAT?

WELL, BECAUSE I THINK

I'M NOT PERFECT.

AND I THINK MAYBE I'M LESS

PERFECT THAN SOME PEOPLE.

BUT I HAVE CERTAIN

ABILITIES THAT ARE GOOD,

LIKE BEING ABLE TO DO

THINGS.

AND I THINK I'LL BE ABLE

TO DO THINGS THAT WILL BE

REALLY GREAT FOR THE

EVANGELICALS AND OTHERS.

HIS SPEECH CAME ACROSS

AS HUMBLE.

IT WASN'T A CAMPAIGN

SPEECH.

DONALD TRUMP IS NOT

TRYING TO BE AN

EVANGELICAL PREACHER.

I THINK WHAT HE IS SAYING

IS, HE UNDERSTANDS OUR

PROBLEMS.

HE UNDERSTANDS OUR

CONCERNS.

AND HE IS GOING TO BE A

CHAMPION FOR US.

I KNOW WHEN PEOPLE

DON'T LIKE ME.

AND THAT'S OKAY.

EITHER WAY.

I'D PREFER THE LIKING, BUT

SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T WORK

OUT, NO MATTER WHAT YOU

DO.

Reporter: BUT SOME

ARE WILLING TO LOOK BEYOND

THAT.

> A LOT OF CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE YOU HAVE BEEN

CHOSEN FOR SUCH A TIME AS

THIS.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT IS

TRUE?

HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED

MAYBE THIS IS A DIVINE

CALLING?

YOU KNOW, I'VE HEARD

THAT FROM OTHERS, AND I'VE

HEARD IT FROM PASTORS.

I'VE HEARD IT FROM OTHERS.

AND I DON'T REALLY EVEN

WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT

BECAUSE IT IS TOO BIG OF A

BURDEN.

BUT I CAN SAY THIS, IF I

CAN DO WHAT I'M SAYING I

CAN DO, AND I'M NOT ONLY

TALKING ABOUT THE MILITARY

AND BUILDING IT UP IN

SAFETY AND SECURITY

BECAUSE OUR COUNTRY IS IN

SUCH BAD SHAPE IN SO MANY

WAYS --

Reporter: DIVINE

CALLING OR NOT, TRUMP SAYS

HE IS A FRIEND TO

CHRISTIANS.

> RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, YOU

TALKED ABOUT THAT SOME.

A LOT OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS

ARE GETTING ATTACKED

BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO

SUPPORT GAY COUPLES OR

SERVICES, AND YOU SAID IN

THE PAST YOU WOULD DEFEND

THESE BUSINESSES.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO

PROTECT THESE?

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M GOING

TO DO?

WHAT I'M GOING TO DO TO

PROTECT -- AND WHAT I'M

GOING TO DO, I THINK MOST

IMPORTANTLY, IS WORK ON

EXACTLY WHAT I TALKED

ABOUT TODAY.

THEY BELIEVE SO MUCH IN

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, AS I

DO, VERY MUCH.

BECAUSE WITHOUT RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY, YOU DON'T HAVE

LIBERTY.

YOU DON'T HAVE LIBERTY.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: AND THAT'S

EXACTLY WHAT EVANGELICALS

WANT TO HEAR, BUT TRUMP

STILL HAS WORK TO DO.

MOST OF THESE PASTORS ARE

ON BOARD, BUT ADMIT HE

WASN'T THEIR FIRST CHOICE.

SOME OF THE THINGS WITH

DONALD TRUMP, WE'RE NOT

SURE EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE

GOING TO GET.

WE'LL HAVE TO SEE.

BUT WITH HILLARY CLINTON,

WE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE

GOING TO GET, AND THAT

LOOKS BAD ALL ACROSS THE

BOARD.

IF WE CAN OPEN UP THE

VOICES OF GREAT PEOPLE,

THE PASTORS AND MINISTERS

AND PRIESTS AND RABBIS AND

PEOPLE OF RELIGION, I

THINK THAT WILL BE

SOMETHING I WILL BE SO

PROUD OF.

Reporter: THIS IS A

MOVE IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION FOR DONALD

TRUMP, BUT, OF COURSE,

ONLY TIME WILL TELL IF IT,

IN FACT, TRANSLATES IN THE

POLLS.

REPORTING AND ORLANDO, CBN

NEWS.

Pat: I MUST CONFESS,

OVER THE DECADES, I HAVE

NEVER HEARD A PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE SPEAKING SO

FORCEFULLY ABOUT RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY.

THEY SORT OF NODDED AND

PAT YOU ON THE BACK.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS.

THEY RUN THE EVANGELICALS

OUT FOR A VOTE DURING A

CAMPAIGN, AND THEN WHEN

THE CAMPAIGN IS OVER, THE

GUYS FORGET THEIR PROMISES

AND THEY GO BACK TO DOING

BUSINESS AS USUAL.

I THINK TRUMP MEANS IT.

BUT HE ALSO FEELS THAT

THIS ELECTION IS IN THE

HANDS OF THE EVANGELICALS.

IF THE EVANGELICALS TURN

OUT TO VOTE, HE THINKS

THAT THE REPUBLICAN SLATE

WILL WIN.

AND IF THEY DON'T TURN OUT

TO VOTE, THEN THEY'RE

GOING TO LOSE.

IT IS JUST THAT SIMPLE.

BUT THIS IS A HUGE BLOCK

OF VOTES, AND HE

APPRECIATES IT.

THE FACT HE IS ZEROING IN

ON THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT -- I'VE BEEN

FIGHTING THAT THING FOR

DECADES.

I HAVE NEVER HEARD A

NATIONAL SPEAKER SPEAK AS

FORCEFULLY ABOUT THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT.

THEY HAVE DUCKED IT.

I HAVE SPOKEN TO SPEAKERS

OF THE HOUSE AND ALL OF

THESE OTHER PEOPLE, AND

THEY ALL KIND OF NOD AND

SAY, YEAH, WE'LL TRY TO

HELP YOU, AND THEY NEVER,

EVER DO.

AND THAT GOES ALL THE WAY

BACK TO RONALD REAGAN.

HE COULD HAVE DONE SOME

STUFF, TOO, AND HE DIDN'T.

THEY SAY, YOU VOTE FOR US

AND THEN YOU GO BACK AND

IS IT IN YOUR PEWS AND

KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT.

TRUMP IS SAYING, YOU SPEAK

OUT AND GET WITH IT.

THAT IS A VERY REFRESHING

REFRAIN.

THE I.R.S. HAS USED THIS

AS A CLUB OVER THE HEADS

OF RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS.

THE AMAZING THING IS, ON

THE LEFT, BLACK PASTORS,

FOR EXAMPLE, DON'T

HESITATE TO SPEAK BY NAME

AND NAME CANDIDATES AND

SUPPORT CANDIDATES BY NAME

PARTICULAR THE PULPIT.

AND THE I.R.S. DOESN'T

TOUCH THEM.

BUT THE WEIGHT OF THE

I.R.S. COMES AGAINST

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS ON

THE CONSERVATIVE SIDE OF

THE SPECTRUM.

AND THERE IS NO QUESTION

ABOUT IT.

I HAVE SEEN IT WITH LOIS

LERNER, WHEN SHE WAS IN

THE F.C.C. AND THE TAX

EXEMPT BRANCH, SHE

APPARENTLY HATED

CHRISTIANS.

SHE PLED THE FIFTH BECAUSE

SHE HAD BROKEN SO MANY

LAWS.

I DON'T THINK THEY EVER

PUNISHED HER.

SHE STILL MAYBE GETS A

PENSION.

HEY WAY, THIS IS THE

CAMPAIGN WE'RE SEEING.

BIG THINGS -- I'M GOING TO

SAY AGAIN, REGISTER TO

VOTE.

IF YOU'RE NOT REGISTERED,

YOU CAN'T VOTE.

WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET

YOURSELF REGISTERED, GO DO

IT.

> WELL, TRUMP HAS BEEN

MAKING HEADLINES, TOO,

WITH REMARKS ABOUT

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND ISIS.

AND YOU SAY, OH, DONALD,

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE

DON'T SAY STUFF LIKE THAT.

I CAN TELL YOU WHERE ISIS

CAME FROM.

I CAN TELL YOU THE PERSON

WHO FOUNDED ISIS.

I CAN TELL YOU WHAT HE WAS

BEFORE HE FOUNDED IT.

HE WAS A PIMP, BY THE WAY.

HE HAD A BIG RELIGIOUS

CONVERSION AND THEN HE WAS

KILLED BY A DRONE STRIKE,

AND THEN HIS SUCCESSOR IS

BAGHDADI, AND HE IS OVER

THERE RUNNING ISIS.

I DON'T THINK WE CAN SAY

THE PRESIDENT FOUNDED IT.

HE CERTAINLY ENCOURAGED IT

BY HIS ACTIONS.

ANYHOW, HILLARY CLINTON

SAYS HER ECONOMIC PLAN

WILL BRING BACK JOBS.

LET'S SEE ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: SPEAKING IN

MICHIGAN ON THURSDAY,

HILLARY CLINTON UNVEILED

HER ECONOMIC PROPOSALS,

TOUTING HERSELF AS THE

CHAMPION OF THE MIDDLE

CLASS.

SHE SAID ONLY HER

POLICIES, NOT THOSE

PROMISED BY DONALD TRUMP,

WOULD BRING RELIEF TO

ECONOMICALLY BELEAGUERED

AMERICANS.

SHE PLEDGED TO START

CREATING JOBS ON DAY ONE

OF HER PRESIDENCY, AND

GIVE STUDENTS AND THEIR

FAMILIES WHO EARN LESS

THAN $125,000 FREE TUITION

AT PUBLIC COLLEGES AND

UNIVERSITIES.

BUT CRITICS SAY

MRS. CLINTON'S PLAN WON'T

DO MUCH FOR ECONOMIC

GROWTH.

AT A TIME WHEN THE U.S.,

UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA, HAS

EXPERIENCED THE WEAKEST

RECOVERY SINCE WORLD WAR

II.

AND THEY SAY HER CRITICISM

OF TRUMP'S PLANS SOUNDED

LIKE THE SAME WARFARE

TACTICS USED IN PAST

DEMOCRATIC COMPAIGNS.

SHE SAID HIS TAX-CUT

PROPOSALS WOULD ONLY

BENEFIT THE WEALTHY.

HE WANTS AMERICA TO

WORK FOR HIM AND HIS

FRIENDS AT THE EXPENSE OF

EVERYONE ELSE.

Reporter: BUT CRITICS

ALSO POINT OUT HILLARY

CLINTON HAS RECEIVED

MILLIONS MORE FROM WALL

STREET THAN DONALD TRUMP.

SO FAR THIS YEAR, HEDGE

FUND FUND INVESTORS AND

THEIR EMPLOYEES HAVE

REPORTEDLY CONTRIBUTED

$48 MILLION TO CLINTON AND

ONLY $19,000 TO TRUMP.

THE FORMER SECRETARY OF

STATE HAS GAINED

PERSONALLY, RECEIVING

$21 MILLION IN SPEAKING

FEES FROM WALL STREET

FIRMS.

MRS. CLINTON ALSO BASHED

TRUMP'S MANUFACTURING

PRACTICES.

HE MAKES TRUMP TIES IN

CHINA AND TRUMP SUITS IN

MEXICO, INSTEAD OF HERE IN

MICHIGAN.

HE KEEPS SAYING IT IS NOT

POSSIBLE TO MAKE THESE

THINGS IN AMERICA ANYMORE,

AND THAT'S JUST WRONG.

Reporter: SHE

REPEATED HER OPPOSITION TO

THE TRANS PACIFIC TRADE

DEAL.

AND TRUMP PROMISED A

MASSIVE CUT IN TAXES AND

GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS.

HE PLEDGED TO BOOST

BUILDING ON ROADS AND

BRIDGES.

AND HE WOULD ALLOW

FAMILIES TO DEDUCT THEIR

FULL CHILD CARE FROM THEIR

TAXES.

BUT TRUMP'S COMMENTS ON

FOREIGN POLICY AND ISLAMIC

TERRORISM GOT THE MOST

ATTENTION.

I CALL PRESIDENT OBAMA

AND HILLARY CLINTON THE

FOUNDERS OF ISIS.

Reporter: LIBERAL

PUNDITS WERE OUTRAGED, AND

TRUMP WAS EVEN CHALLENGED

BY CONSERVATIVES, LIKE HUE

HUET.

HE IS NOT SYMPATHETIC

TO THEM.

Reporter: TRUMP

EXPLAINED WHAT HE MEANT BY

CALLING THE PRESIDENT THE

FOUNDER OF ISIS.

HE IS THE FOUNDER, IN

THE TRUE SENSE.

IF HE WOULD HAVE STAYED --

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE THERE,

BUT IF HE WOULD HAVE KEPT

A RELATIVELY SMALL FORCE,

HE PROBABLY COULD HAVE

PREVENTED ISIS FROM

FORMING.

OKAY?

AND NOW YOU LOOK AT WHAT

IS GOING ON WITH ISIS,

WHERE THEY'RE SPREADING.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, THAT'S THE

WAY IT IS, BUT THIS

MASAWI, WHO FOUNDED ISIS,

ACTUALLY, WAS A PIMP.

HE LIKED PROCURING WOMEN

AND LIVING A PRETTY WILD

LIFESTYLE.

AND THEN HE HAD THIS

RELIGIOUS FEELING, AND HE

ACTUALLY -- AS I

UNDERSTAND IT, HE FELT

LIKE HIS SKIN NEEDED TO BE

CUT OFF HIS BODY.

HE HAD SOME KIND OF THING

WHERE HE SCRAPED HIS SKIN

OFF.

HE FELT HE HAD SUCH STAIN

AND SIN ON HIM, AND HE

WANTED TO GET HIMSELF TO

ALLAH, AND SO HE DID

WHATEVER YOU DO TO SCRAPE

SKIN OFF.

IT WAS A HORRIBLE THING.

Terry: IT'S NOT JUST

HIM.

YOU HEAR THIS ABOUT A

NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE

BEEN INVOLVED IN SOME OF

THIS ACTIVITY, THIS VERY

VIOLENT ACTIVITY, WHO SAY

THEY'RE DOING IT TO ADHERE

TO THEIR MUSLIM FAITH.

AND THEY DO IT IN THE NAME

OF ALLAH, BUT THEY ARE

INVOLVED IN THESE BAWDY

SCENARIOS IN THEIR PRIVATE

LIFE.

HOW DOES ONE MATCH THAT

UP?

I DON'T GET IT.

Pat: MUHAMMAD LIVED A

RATHER -- WELL, AS FAR AS

SEXUAL THINGS, THE SKY IS

THE LIMIT.

YOU COULD HAVE FOUR WIVES.

THE WHOLE PROMISE OF

MARTYRDOM IS YOU'RE GOING

TO GET 72 VIR VINS.

VIRGINS.

72 OF THEM.

Terry: AFTER 72 DAYS,

THEY'RE NOT ANYMORE.

Pat: WELL, 72 -- AND

SOME OF THESE GUYS, THEY

BLOW THEMSELVES UP, AND

THEY HAVE SOME KIND OF

PROTECTION OVER THEIR

GENITALIA SO THEY'LL BE IN

SHAPE FOR THE VIRGINS.

THIS WHOLE THING IS BASED

ON SEX.

THAT IS HOW HE REWARDED

HIS FOLLOWERS IN THOSE

EARLY DAYS.

HE SAID, WE'LL GIVE YOU

WIVES.

YOU CAN HAVE SEX SLAVES.

THAT'S WHAT ISIS IS DOING.

THEY'RE TAKING THESE WOMEN

FROM THESE SMALL GROUPS,

AND THEY'RE MAKING SEX

SLAVES OUT OF THEM.

Terry: IT IS HARD TO

UNDERSTAND WOMEN BEING

ATTRACTED --

Pat: THEY'RE NOT

ATTRACTED.

THEY'RE FORCED.

ISIS -- THEY HAVE A GROUP

OF THOSE YAZIDI WOMEN WHO

HAVE BEEN MADE WIVES

COMPULSARY, AND THESE

WOMEN SAID WE CANNOT DO

THIS ANY LONGER.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO PERMIT

THESE MEN TO HAVE SEXUAL

RELATIONS WITH US.

OKAY.

SO WHAT DID THEY DO?

THEY PUT THEM IN A CAGE

AND SET THEM ON FIRE AND

BURNED THEM TO DEATH.

THAT'S HOW THEY HANDLED

THAT.

THEY ARE BRUTAL MONSTERS

AND THEY NEED TO BE WIPED

OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

BUT THIS -- THE FIRST ONE,

ONE,MUSAWI CREATED THE

CALIPHATE.

AND THE SUCCESSOR IS

CLAIMING A CALIPHATE.

WHERE THESE PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO BE IN CHARGE,

LIKE THE OLD CALIPHS IN

THE TURKISH OTTOMAN

EMPIRE.

Terry: WELL, IT WILL

CERTAINLY BE SOMETHING

WE'LL CONTINUE TO COVER.

BUT IT IS SOMETIMES

DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND.

> WELL, COMING UP, THE

KEY TO BOOSTING YOUR

OVERALL HEALTH LIES IN

YOUR GULL.

>GUT.

WHEN PEOPLE START

INCREASING THE PREBIOTTIC

FIBER, THEY START LOSING

WEIGHT.

WHO KNEW.

THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY

INFORMATION.

Terry: SEE HOW A DIET

THAT NURTURES YOUR GUT

ALSO NURTURES YOUR BRAIN

AND MUCH, MUCH MORE.

IT'S ALL AFTER THIS.

Pat: A FEW MONTHS AGO

I READ ABOUT THIS

PARTICULAR CURE FOR

DISEASE, AND IT WAS SO

IMPORTANT THAT I THOUGHT

WE WANTED TO BRING YOU A

MAJOR STORY.

SO I ASKED OUR HEALTH

EDITOR, LORIE JOHNSON, TO

PLEASE DO A THOROUGH PIECE

ON THIS PARTICULAR

HEALTH -- WHAT DO YOU CALL

IT?

Terry: AN AREA, I

GUESS.

Pat: AN AREA OF

MEDICINE.

HIPPOCRATES ONCE SAID ALL

DISEASE BEGINS IN THE GUT.

THE GUT.

TODAY MORE THAN 2,000

YEARS LATER, HIPPOCRATES'

WORDS STILL RING TRUE.

OUR LORIE JOHNSON EXPLAINS

HOW SOME OF OUR LATEST

MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS

FOCUS ON WHAT IS HAPPENING

IN THIS VITAL PART OF OUR

ANATOMY.

Lorie: BACTERIA, ALSO

KNOWN AS BUGS OR GERMS, WE

ASSUME THEY'RE ALL BAD,

RIGHT?

NOT SO FAST.

SCIENTISTS RECENTLY

DISCOVERED MUCH, IF NOT

MOST, OF THE BACTERIA IN

OUR BODY IS GOOD FOR US.

IN FACT, A KEY TO GOOD

HEALTH DEPENDS ON HAVING

ENOUGH OF THE RIGHT KIND.

WE ALL HAVE TRILLIONS OF

BACTERIA LIVING IN OUR

INTESTINES, HUNDREDS UF

DIFFERENT SPECIES ALL

PERFORMING DIFFERENT

FUNCTIONS.

SCIENTISTS CALL IT OUR GUT

FLORA.

NEUROLOGIST DAVID

PERLMUTTER IS ONE OF MANY

PHYSICIANS WARNING AGAINST

DISRUPTING THIS FRAGILE

ECO-SYSTEM.

WE ALL CARRY GOOD AND

BAD BUGS, AND IT IS THE

IMBALANCE THAT SEEMS TOB TO BE

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE FOR

OUR ILLNESSES.

Lorie: THIS DOCTOR

AGREES.

HAVING A HEALTHY GUT

PROTECTS US FROM

EVERYTHING FROM THE COMMON

COLD TO CANCER.

80% OF OUR IMMUNE

SYSTEM IS LOCATED ALL

ALONG THE BOUNDARY OF THE

GUT.

Lorie: UNFORTUNATELY,

WHEN IT COMES TO GOOD GUT

BACTERIA, MANY OF US ARE

SORELY LACKING.

WE'RE SEEING A EPIDEMIC

OF DISRUPTION OF THE GUT

BACTERIA WORLDWIDE.

AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS

BECAUSE OF THE WIDESPREAD

USE OF PRESCRIBING

ANTIBIOTICS.

Lorie: AFTER ALL,

ANTIBIOTICS KILL BACTERIA,

BAD AND GOOD.

YOU'VE GOT TO

UNDERSTAND THAT TAKING AN

ANTIBIOTIC WILL CHANGE THE

COMPLEXITY OF YOUR GUT

BACTERIA AND THE

DIVERSITIY OF THE GUT

BACTERIA FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE.

JUST ONE COURSE OF

ANTIBIOTICS.

Lorie: PROCESSED FOOD

CAN ALSO BE A CU CULPRIT.

THERE IS WAY TOO MUCH

SUGAR IN OUR DIET.

SUGAR BREEDS BAD

ORGANISMS.

AND I'M ALSO TALKING ABOUT

ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

BECAUSE THEY CAUSE A

DISBIOSIS AND PROMOTE THE

GROWTH OF BACTERIA THAT

CAN CAUSE IMFLAMMATION OF

DISEASE.

WE'VE GOT TO WELCOME FAT

BACK TO THE TABLE, BUT

ONLY THE GOOD FATS.

NOT THE MODIFIED FATS.

SO BE VERY LIBERAL WITH

YOUR USE OF EXTRA VIRGIN

OLIVE OIL AND COCONUT OIL,

GRASS-FED MEAT, WILD FISH

AND NUTS AND SEEDS.

Lorie: EVEN BABIES

DELIVERED BY CESAREAN

SECTION CAN MISS OUT ON

GETTING ENOUGH GOOD

BACTERIA.

WE GAIN OUR MOST

BACTERIA WHEN WE'RE BORN.

WHEN WE PASS THROUGH THE

BIRTH CANAL, THE BABY IS

INOCULATED WITH BACTERIA

THAT IS TRANSFERRED FROM

MOTHER TO BABY.

AND THOSE ARE THE SEEDS

THAT WILL LAST A

LIFESTYLE.

Lorie: AND WHILE OUR

LIFESTYLE CHOICES CAN

REALLY DO A NUMBER ON OUR

INTESTINAL FLORA, THE GOOD

NEWS IS WE CAN MAKE OUR

GUT HEALTHY AGAIN AND KEEP

IT THAT WAY WITH

PROBIOTICS AND PREBIOTICS.

PROBIOTICS EQUAL GOOD

BACTERIA.

YOU CAN FIND THESE

MICROSCOPIC ORGANISMS IN

SUPPLEMENTS AND CULTURED

AND FERMENTED FOODS, LIKE

KIMCHI, SAUERKRAUT, KEFIR

AND CAM BUENAKEFIRAND KAMBUCHA.

THEY CREATE A NURTURING

ENVIRONMENT SO YOUR

BACTERIA CAN SURVIVE.

YOU CAN GET PREBIOTICS IN

SUPPLEMENT FORM, AS WELL

AS IN FOOD, SUCH AS LEAKS,

GARLIC, DANDELIONS.

THE CHANGES ARE

REMARKABLE.

WEIGHT LOSS, IMMEDIATE.

IMPROVEMENT OF MOOD BY

ADDING PREBOSTIC FIBER TO

YOUR DIET.

WHO KNEW?

THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY

INFORMATION.

Lorie: AND HE SAYS

EVEN SERIOUS BRAIN

DISORDERS, LIKE AD/HD,

AUTISM, EVEN ALZHEIMER'S,

CAN IMPROVE BY INCREASING

GOOD BACTERIA BECAUSE THEY

MAKE NEUROTRANSMITTERS AND

VITAMINS, WHILE REDUCING

INFORMATION.

I LOST MY DAD JUST LAST

YEAR TO ALZHEIMER'S

DISEASE, SO I REALLY GET

IT.

AND I WANT TO STAND UP AND

BE HEARD THAT IT'S GREAT

THAT WE TRY TO DEVELOP A

CURE FOR THIS DISEASE, BUT

WE KNOW RIGHT NOW, AS WE

HAVE THIS DISCUSSION, THAT

IT IS PREVENTABLE.

AND WHEN WE EAT A DIET

THAT NURTURES THE GUT, IT

WILL NURTURE THE BRAIN.

Lorie: AND NOT JUST

THE BRAIN.

SCIENTISTS ARE NOW

IDENTIFYING SPECIFIC

STRAINS OF GOOD BACTERIA

THAT TREAT ALL KINDS OF

PROBLEMS, FROM SKIN RASHES

TO THE FLU.

THAT MEANS A TARGETEDED

PROBIOTIC COULD TAKE THE

PLACE OF A PRESCRIBED

DRUG.

I THINK WE'RE ON THE

TIP OF THE ICEBERG,

LEARNING HOW TO USE THAT.

Lorie: SO IF YOU WANT

TO BOOST YOUR HEALTH,

DOCTORS SAY IMPROVE YOUR

GUT FLORA, AND THAT MEANS

AVOIDING PROCESSED FOODS

AND EVEN ANTIBACTERIAL

PRODUCTS WHEN ADVISABLE.

AND THEN ADD GOOD BACTERIA

WITH PROBIOTICS AND BOOST

THEM WITH PREBIOTICS,

AVAILABLE IN SUPPLEMENTS,

CERTAIN FOODS, OR BOTH.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: A FABULOUS

REPORT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MOST

PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT

THIS.

THIS IS KIND OF A STRANGE

AREA THAT IS NOT WIDELY

PUBLICIZED.

JUST THINK ONE COURSE OF

ANTIBIOTICS CAN KILL THE

STUFF IN YOUR STOMACH FOR

THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

AND DOCTORS PASS OUT

ANTIBIOTICS LIKE CRAZY.

YOU HAVE A COUGH, AND HERE

IS AN ANTIBIOTICS.

YOU'VE GOT TO BUILD IT

BACK UP WITH STUFF LIKE

YOGURT AND PREBIOTICS.

LORIE HAS DONE A GREAT

SERVICE AND WE MAY WANT TO

BRING THIS BACK AGAIN.

CAN YOU THINK OF ALL OF

THE DISEASES PEOPLE HAVE,

AUTISM AND ALZHEIMER'S --

Terry: AND EVEN

AD/HD, PEOPLE STRUGGLE

WITH THAT.

Pat: AND ALL OF THESE

RASHES.

AND LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE

ALL OF THESE DISEASES THAT

THEY HAVE, AND THEY COULD

BE ALLEVIATED IF THEY GOT

THE RIGHT KIND OF FOOD.

IT IS AMAZING.

Terry: IT REALLY IS.

Pat: YOU HEARD IT

HEAR ON "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE HERE TO HELP YOU.

Terry: A PARTY GIRL

ENDS UP IN THE E.R.,

ASTONISHING HER DOCTORS.

YOU ARE A WALKING DEAD

WOMAN.

Terry: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN THIS DEAD

WOMAN LEAVES THE HOSPITAL,

AFTER THIS.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB" ON THIS

LOVELY, HOT FRIDAY.

THERE IS A HEATWAVE ALL

OVER THE EAST COAST.

THEY SAY THE HEAT HERE IN

OUR TIDEWATER AREA -- THE

HEAT INDEX WILL BE ABOUT

103.

THE TEMPERATURES CLOSE TO

100.

IT IS GOING TO BE

MISERABLE.

BUT WE'VE GOT PLENTY OF

AIR CONDITIONING, THANK

THE LORD.

HOPE YOU'VE GOT IT.

> HEATHER SHOTT LOVED TO

PARTY.

THAT'S WHY WHEN HER FRIEND

OFFERED HER ECSTASY,

HEATHER EAGLE INDULGED,

AND SUDDENLY HEATHER WAS

FOAMING AT THE MOUTH AND

COMPLETELY BLACKED OUT.

ME AND A GROUP OF

FRIENDS WERE OUT, AND WE

WERE GOING FROM PARTLY TO

PARTY.

PARTY TO

PARTY, AND WE WERE DOING

DRUGS IN THE CAR BEFORE

GOING INTO THE PARTIES AND

THEN IN THE PARTIES.

I STARTED FOAMING AT THE

MOUTH.

THE LAST THING I REMEMBER

IS HE SAYS TO ME, HEATHER,

ARE YOU OKAY?

AND THAT'S WHEN I BLACKED

OUT.

MY PARENTS DIVORCED WHEN I

WAS TWO YEARS OLD.

ALL I REALLY KNEW IS DADDY

HATED MOM AND MOM HATED

DADDY.

I WAS HEARING FROM BOTH

SIDES THE REASON WHY THEY

DISLIKED EACH OTHER.

IT PUT A LOT OF BITTERNESS

IN MY HEART TOWARDS MY

PARENTS AT A PRETTY YOUNG

AGE.

MY MOM REMARRIED WHEN I

WAS ABOUT 4 1/2 OR 5 YEARS

OLD.

WHEN MY MOM MARRIED MY

STEPDAD, THEY BEGAN TO

STRONGLY PUT THEIR FAITH

IN THE LORD.

I KNOW WHO GOD WAS.

I KNEW STORIES IN THE

BIBLE.

BUT I WOULDN'T SAY I

REALLY HAD A STRONG

RELATIONSHIP, WHICH IS SO

KEY, WITH GOD.

FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF A

KID, MY DAD WAS JUST THE

FUNNEST DAD EVER.

I STAYED OUT AS LONG AS I

WANTED.

IF I DIDN'T WANT TO COME

HOME AT NIGHT, I DIDN'T

COME HOME.

IF I WANTED TO DRINK, I

COULD DRINK.

IF I WANTED TO SMOKE, I

COULD SMOKE.

WHEN I WENT INTO HIGH

SCHOOL, I BECAME TOO MUCH

FOR MY MOM AND STEPDAD TO

HANDLE.

AND I SAID, I'M MOVING IN

WITH MY DAD.

AND THAT LED INTO ALL

TYPES OF DRUGS, COCAINE,

ECSTASY, IT WAS PARTYING

EVERY WEEKEND.

I BEGAN TO FLUSH OUT ANY

GOOD INFLUENCES IN MY

LIFE, FROM FAMILY MEMBERS

TO FRIENDS TO CHURCH,

EVERYTHING, I BEGAN TO

FLUSH OUT.

EMOTIONALLY, I WAS BROKEN.

I WAS JUST AN ANGRY,

ANGRY, HURT PERSON.

AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS

STARTED TO BREW OUT OF

INSECURITY.

ONE NIGHT ME AND A GROUP

OF FRIENDS, WE WERE OUT,

WE WERE GOING FROM PARTLY

TPARTYTO PARTY.

WE WERE DOING DRUGS BEFORE

GOING INTO THE PARTIES AND

THEN DRINKING AT THE

PARTIES.

ONE OF MY FRIENDS, HE HAD

A BIG BAG OF ECSTASY.

IT WAS THIS HUGE BAG.

WE WERE LIKE, WHATEVER.

WE'RE GOING TO SNORT THIS

AND HAVE THE AWESOME BEST

NIGHT OF OUR LIVES.

AND HE STARTS FEEDING US

LINE AFTER LINE.

AND I REMEMBER MY BEST

FRIEND SAYS TO ME,

HEATHER, ARE YOU OKAY?

AND THAT'S WHEN I BLACKED

OUT.

I STARTED FOAMING AT THE

MOUTH.

THE GUY WHO HAD BEEN

FEEDING ME THE LINES, HE

FREAKED OUT.

HE THOUGHT I WAS DEAD AND

HE LEAVES ME IN AN

ABANDONED COMPLEX.

I LAID THERE FOR THREE

DAYS.

I HAVE NO RECOLLECTION OF

ANY OF THAT TIME.

MY BEST FRIEND CONFRONTED

THAT GUY WHO FED ME THE

PILLS, AND HE SAID, YOU

NEED TO SHOW ME WHERE

HEATHER IS AT, IN A STRONG

CONFRONTATION.

THEY BOTH THOUGHT I WAS

DEAD.

THE DOOR WAS JUST CRACKED.

WHEN I HEARD THEM, I MOVED

A LITTLE BIT.

HE SAW ME MOVE AND HE CAME

IN AND PICKED ME UP OFF

THE FLOOR.

THEY RUSHED ME HOME TO MY

DAD.

AND THAT WAS THE FIRST

TIME I STARTED WAKING UP

AFTER THOSE THREE DAYS.

THE DOCTORS -- I REMEMBER

THEM DOING TESTS ON ME,

WALKING IN THE ROOM AND

SAYING, WE HAVE NO CLUE

HOW YOU ARE ALIVE.

YOU HAVE MORE DRUGS IN

YOUR SYSTEM THAN WOULD

KILL THREE GROWN MEN.

YOU ARE A WALKING DEAD

WOMAN.

AND I REMEMBER JUST

BREAKING AND CRYING

BECAUSE I KNEW I SHOULD

HAVE BEEN DEAD.

AND SO IT WAS A MOMENT OF

A LITTLE BIT OF ME

AWAKENING AND QUESTIONING,

WHAT AM I DOING?

MY MOM HAD THE POLICE COME

PULL ME OUT OF MY DAD'S

HOUSE.

SHE WASN'T GIVING UP ON

THE FIGHT, EITHER, FOR ME.

AND SOME OF THE RULES OF

BEING AT HOME WAS I HAD TO

START ATTENDING CHURCH

WITH THEM AGAIN.

WHETHER I WANTED TO ADMIT

IT, IT FELT GOOD.

AND MY HEART BEGAN TO

SLOWLY BE SOFTENED.

A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,

THAT WAS A BIG THING THAT

CHANGED FOR ME.

NOT JUST ATTENDING CHURCH.

I WAS FEELING JUST A

SUPERNATURAL PEACE I NEVER

EXPERIENCED BEFORE.

AND ULTIMATELY, THAT'S IS

WHAT WON MY HEART OVER,

WAS THAT LOVING, PEACEFUL

PRESENCE OF GOD.

THE LORD, HE DELIVERED ME

FROM DRUGS.

HE DELIVERED ME FROM

ALCOHOL.

HE DELIVERED ME FROM THESE

INTENSE ADDICTIONS THAT I

HAD.

IT TOOK A COUPLE OF YEARS.

IT GETS EASIER.

THERE ARE HARD MOMENTS IN

THAT PROCESS.

THERE ARE HARDER DAYS THAN

OTHERS.

AND PART OF MY

ACCOUNTABILITY WAS MY

HUSBAND, WHO I HAD MET.

MY MOM HAD INTRODUCED US

ONLY THREE MONTHS AFTER MY

O.D., AND WE WENT ON OUR

FIRST DATE.

I TOLD HIM EVERYTHING, AND

I THOUGHT HE WOULD GET UP

AND LEAVE THE TABLE,

COMING FROM A PERSON WHO

NEVER DRINKS, NEVER DID

DRUGS, WAS A VIRGIN, AND

HE FELT COMPASSION.

WE STARTED DATING AFTER

THAT, AND WE FELL IN LOVE.

HE REALLY INTRODUCED ME TO

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I'M SO GLAD THAT GOD'S

GRACE GAVE ME THAT SECOND

CHANCE AND GAVE ME AN

INCREDIBLE HUSBAND, AND I

GET TO DO WHAT I DO NOW.

YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN YOU

RECEIVE CHRIST INTO YOUR

LIFE, YOU DON'T HAVE TO

HOLD YOUR HEAD DOWN LOW,

ASHAMED OF THE MISTAKES

YOU'VE MADE.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS

PEOPLE CARRY AROUND

FOREVER AND LET IT EAT UP

THEIR LIFE, INSTEAD OF

LIVING IN THE FULLNESS OF

WHAT GOD INTENDED.

THE REASON WHY HE WANTS TO

SAVE US AND DELIVER US IS

HE WANTS TO USE US.

IF WE ALLOWS THOSE CHAINS

TO HOLD US UP, IT PREVENTS

THE PURPOSE OF WHY HE

WANTS TO SAVE US, WHY HE

WANTS TO REDEEM US.

YOU ARE UNSCARED. UNSCARRED WHEN YOU

RECEIVE JESUS.

HE FULLY MAKES YOU NEW.

IT DOESN'T MEAN I FORGET

MY PAST BECAUSE I WANT TO

FOREVER BE GRATEFUL, BUT

THAT'S NOT WHO I AM.

I'M MADE NEW.

Pat: WHAT A GORGEOUS

GIRL.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT

SOMEBODY AS FRESH AND

BEAUTIFUL AS THAT COULD

HAVE BEEN O.D.'D ON

ECSTASY?

YOU SAY, I COULDN'T

BELIEVE THAT.

I LOOK AT THAT AND SAY IT

COULDN'T POSSIBLY HAPPEN.

YOU SEE, WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS IS WE ARE TO HAVE OUR

CONSCIENCES CLEANSED OF

DEAD WORKS SO WE MIGHT

SERVE THE LIVINGED GOD.

OUR CONSCIENCE CLEANSES

THE DEAD WORKS THAT WE

MIGHT SERVE THE LIVING

GOD.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

YOU'VE DONE.

YOU SEE, GOD IS THE JUDGE

OF ALL OF THE EARTH.

YOU COME BEFORE HIM, AND

HE CAN SAY, OKAY, LOOK, I

PRONOUNCE YOU NOT GUILTY.

THAT IS A DECREE FROM ON

HIGH THAT SUPERSEDES ANY

EARTHLY COURT, ANY EARTHLY

JURISDICTION, ANY RUMOR IN

THE NEIGHBORHOOD OR

WHATEVER ELSE.

GOD SAYS, I PRONOUNCE YOU

CLEANSED.

I PRONOUNCE YOU ACQUITTED.

I PRONOUNCE YOU FREE.

COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED.

YOU ARE JUSTIFIED, JUST AS

IF YOU HAD NEVER SINNED.

THAT'S WHAT GOD WILL SAY.

NOBODY CAN COME AGAINST

THAT KIND OF RULING.

THAT'S THE RULING FROM ON

HIGH.

THAT IS THE SUPREME COURT

OF ALL OF THE COURTS.

AND HE PRONOUNCES YOU

FREE.

HE PRONOUNCES YOU WHOLE.

HE PRONOUNCES YOU

GUILTLESS.

THAT'S WHEN YOU TAKE HIM

AS SAVIOR.

THAT'S WHAT HE WILL DO FOR

YOU.

AND THEN HE'LL GIVE YOU A

BRAND NEW LIFE.

IF YOU WANT THAT, DON'T

TURN HIM DOWN.

DON'T TURN HIM DOWN.

DON'T TRY TO BE SMART AND

CUTE AND ALL OF THE REST

OF IT.

IT IS TOO IMPORTANT.

YOU'RE DEALING WITH YOUR

IMMORTAL SOUL.

SAY TO GOD RIGHT NOW,

LORD, I DON'T WANT TO

CARRY THIS BURDEN ANYMORE.

I DON'T WANT TO BE THE

BEST PARTY PERSON.

I DON'T WANT TO BE A HERO

IN DRINKING.

I DON'T WANT TO BE

SOMEBODY WHO HAS MORE

GIRLS OR BOYS AND SEXUAL

RELATIONS THAN ANYBODY

AROUND -- I DON'T WANT TO

BE THAT KIND OF A HERO.

I WANT TO BE YOUR MAN.

I WANT TO BE YOUR WOMAN.

I WANT TO BELONG TO YOU.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON

I'M YOURS.

JUST SAY THAT AND PRAY IT

WITH ME.

LORD, FROM THIS MOMENT ON

I'M YOURS.

I'M YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED THAT, I WANT

YOU TO GO TO YOUR

TELEPHONE AND CALL IN.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

THERE IS SOMEBODY HERE

THAT LOVES YOU AND WILL

TALK TO YOU.

THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN ARE

REJOICING OVER YOU.

REMEMBER, GOD ISN'T

CONDEMNING YOU.

THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO

CONDEMNATION TO THEM THAT

ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

THEREFORE NOW NO

CONDEMNATION.

NOW, I'M NOT GOING TO

CONDEMN YOU.

JESUS DIDN'T CONDEMN YOU.

GOD DIDN'T CONDEMN YOU.

SO GET YOUR HEAD UP, LOOK

TALL, STAND TALL, YOU'RE A

CHILD OF GOD.

YOU'VE GIVEN YOUR HEART TO

HIM, AND NOW LIVE LIKE IT.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, SHE

Terry: MICHAELA

SIGMON LOVES TO DANCE, AND

THE REIGNING MISS VIRGINIA

IS STUDYING TO BE A

SPORTSCASTER SOME DAY.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MICHAELA

SIGMON HAS BEEN DANCING

SINCE SHE WAS FOUR AND

COMPETING IN PAGEANTS

SINCE SHE WAS SIX.

SHE JOINED A PROFESSIONAL

DANCE TEAM AT 16.

BUT HER FIRST LOVE WAS

PAGEANTS.

LAST MONTH HER YEARS OF

HARD WORK PAID OFF WHEN

SHE WAS CROWNED MISS

VIRGINIA 2016.

SHE'LL REPRESENT HER HOME

STATE IN THE MISS AMERICA

PAGEANT IN SEPTEMBER.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" MICHAELA

SIGMON.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO HAVE

YOU HERE.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO BE

HERE TODAY.

Terry: FIRST OF ALL,

CONGRATULATIONS BECAUSE

THIS WAS A RECENT VICTORY

FOR YOU.

THANK YOU.

IT WAS ABOUT SIX WEEKS

AGO.

Terry: WAS IT FUN?

WAS SO SCHILL RATING.

EXHILARATING.

IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE.

I'M LIVING MY DREAM.

Terry: HOW HAS YOUR

LIFE CHANGED?

YOU HAVE HAD SIX WEEKS OF

BEING MISS VIRGINIA.

WHAT'S IT LIKE?

IT IS REALLY BUSY.

BUT I LOVE BEING BUSY.

AND I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE

THAT, YOU KNOW, I JUST

WANT TO SHARE GOD'S GRACE

AND HIS LOVE.

THROUGH MY WALK TO

MISS AMERICA OR WHETHER MY

FEET ARE TIRED OR I'M

EXHAUSTED AND I WANT TO

SLEEP, I TAKE A FEW CUPS

OF COFFEE AND I'M GOOD.

Terry: THAT KIND OF

IS ONE OF THE GREAT

LEARNING EXPERIENCES, I

THINK, OF BEING MISS

VIRGINIA, MISS AMERICA, OR

WHATEVER, YOU JUST MANY

DAYS HAVE TO PULL YOURSELF

UP BY THE BOOT STRAPS AND

KEEP ON KEEPING ON.

EXACTLY.

Terry: YOU'VE DANCED

SINCE YOU WERE FOUR YEARS

OLD.

YOU HAVE BEEN IN PAGEANTS

SINCE YOU WERE VERY YOUNG.

HOW DID THAT ALL START FOR

YOU?

WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT

IS, I LOVE TO DANCE.

AND I WAS IN ACTING AND

MODELING WHEN I WAS

YOUNGER.

BUT FOR SOME REASON I

ALWAYS CHOSE PAGEANTS.

I REALLY FEEL LIKE IN MY

GENERATION, AND IN THIS

TIME IN HISTORY, WE NEED

TO PROMOTE VALUE IN

OTHERS, AND THE SELF-WORTH

IN OUR COMMUNITY.

THAT'S MY PLATFORM,

"MAKING IT MATTER."

AND THAT'S WHY I CHOSE

PAGEANTS BECAUSE I WAS

MEANT FOR THIS TIME AND

PURPOSE TO SHARE VALUING

OTHERS.

Terry: WHAT DO YOU

MEAN WHEN YOU SAY THAT,

MAKING OTHERS FEEL

VALUABLE?

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

I SAY I DON'T KNOW YOU,

BUT I SEE YOU AND I VALUE

YOU.

I WAS TOLD THIS STORY MY

FRESHMAN YEAR OF COLLEGE.

THEY TALKED ABOUT THIS MAN

WHO HAD A BEAUTIFUL JOB IN

THE CITY OF NEW YORK AND A

BEAUTIFUL FAMILY, AND ALL

HE WANTED WAS VALUE.

IN HIS SUICIDE LETTER HE

WROTE, IF ONE PERSON WERE

TO SMILE AT ME WHEN I

WALKED DOWN TIMES SQUARE,

I WON'T COMMIT SUICIDE.

THAT NIGHT, NO ONE SMILED

AT HIM.

SO I WANT TO BE THAT ONE

PERSON TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

Terry: TALK A LITTLE

ABOUT DANCE BECAUSE IT HAS

BEEN A SIGNIFICANT PART OF

YOUR LIFE.

YOU'VE DANCED HERE ON OUR

CAMPUS AT CBN BECAUSE

EVERY YEAR WE CELEBRATE

ROSH HASHANAH.

AND YOU WERE PART OF A

DANCE GROUP THAT BRINGS A

SPIRITUAL ELEMENT TO ALL

OF THAT.

I WAS RAISED IN L.A.

AND DAVID AND NORA REALLY

TAUGHT ME THAT GIFT.

AND IT IS A GIFT FROM THE

LORD, AND TO USE IT IN A

POWERFUL WAY, TO BRING

LIGHT IN A DARK PLACE.

THAT'S WHAT I'M HOPING TO

DO ON THE MISS AMERICA

STAGE, JUST SHOW HIS LIGHT

AND GUIDANCE AND MY LIFE.

Terry: THAT'S THE ONE

OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE

GIRLS WHO COMPETE AT THE

STATE LEVEL AND THE ON THE

NATIONAL LEVEL, YOU'RE

CALLED ON TO DO A TALENT.

ARE YOU EXCITED?

I'M SO EXCITED.

IT IS SOMETHING I'VE DONE

SINCE I WAS FOUR.

IT HAS BEEN SO MANY YEARS

OF TRAINING.

IF I CAN MAKE SOMEONE FEEL

LIKE A STAR, I'VE DONE MY

JOB.

Terry: WE TALKED A

LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR

PLATFORM.

WHEN YOU GO TO THE

MISS AMERICA PAGEANT, IT

IS LIKE EVERY LEVEL OF

PAGEANT, AND IT JUST GETS

RAMPED UP A LITTLE BIT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL BE

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES FOR

YOU?

NOT TO BE NERVOUS.

I THINK THAT GOD CALLS

US -- SOMETHING THAT I'M

LEARNING IS HE CALLS US TO

BE HUMBLE, BUT HE ALSO

CALLS US TO BE BOLD AND

COURAGEOUS AND TO WALK IN

HIS GUIDANCE, AND LET HIM

SPEAK THROUGH YOU AND GIVE

HIM THE WISDOM THAYOU THE WISDOM YOU'RE

SUPPOSED TO HAVE.

Terry: THERE ARE A

LOT OF PEOPLE IN OUR

CULTURE TODAY WHO DON'T

VALUE CHRISTIAN VALUES AND

WOULDN'T AGREE WITH SOME

OF THEM.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE THAT,

WHERE MAYBE SOME OF THE

JUDGES WHO ARE

INTERVIEWING MAY NOT VALUE

YOUR VALUES.

I WAS TOLD BEFORE I

WALKED IN THAT I HAD NO

CHANCE BECAUSE THEY

BELIEVED COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT THAN ME

POLITICALLY AND MORALLY.

I SAID, YOU KNOW, WHEN GOD

WAS ON THIS EARTH, WHAT

DID HE DO?

HE SAID THE GREATEST THING

IS LOVE.

AND SO HE IS LOVE.

I LEARNED TO AGREE TO

DISAGREE.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.

YOU HAVE TO FIND THAT

COMMON GOAL AND YOU HAVE

TO LOVE SMIN I SOMEONE IN SPITE

OF THEIR VIEW AND YOU HAVE

TO LISTEN TO THEM.

Terry: YOUR GOAL IS

TO BE A SPORTSCASTER, AND

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

DANCE --

I WAS RAISED IN A HOME

WHERE I HAD TWO OLDER

BROTHERS WHO PLAYED

SPORTS.

SO I WAS THAT LITTLE

4-YEAR-OLD DRAGGED TO ALL

OF THE GAMES.

I LOVE THE ATMOSPHERE OF A

SPORTS TEAM, AND THE

BONDING AND THE UNITY.

THAT WOULD BE AN

INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY.

Terry: WHAT'S YOUR

BIG FOCUS AS YOU HEAD TO

THE MISS AMERICA PAGEANT?

MY BIG FOCUSES IS

EVERYONE WHO IS HELPING

ME, THAT I VALUE YOU THEM.

WHEN I'M ON THE STAGE, I

WANT THEM TO SAY, WOW, SHE

VALUED ME.

AND SAYING, THERE IS

SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT

HER -- SHE VALUED ME.

I'M SUPPOSED TO BE

INTERVIEWING HER, AND SHE

FLIPPED THE PAGE AND

VALUED ME, IN SPITE OF THE

NERVOUSNESS THAT GOES ON.

Terry: WE WANT YOU TO

KNOW YOU CAN WATCH

MICHAELA SIGMON IN THE

PAGEANT ON SUNDAY,

AUGUST 11th.

AND RIGHT NOW YOU CAN

WATCH OUR EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW WITH MICHAELA ON

Facebook.

WE WISH YOU THE BEST.

WE'LL BE WATCHING YOU AND

WISHING YOU THE BEST.

THANK YOU.

THE BEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE

ME IS YOUR PRAYERS.

Pat: LOVELY GIRL, HOW

SWEET.

> STILL AHEAD, WE'LL

"BRING IT ON."

A VIEWER SAYS, "I WORK FOR

A SMALL FAMILY BUSINESS, I

HAVE NOT HAD A RAISE IN

THREE YEARS, AND THE

BUSINESS IS A MESS.

I CAN'T APPLY ELSEWHERE

BECAUSE MY BOSS KNOWS

EVERYONE IN OUR SMALL

TOWN.

WHAT CAN I DO?

I FEEL STUCK."

WE'VE GOT THAT ONE AND

SOME MORE QUESTIONS WHEN

WE "BRING IT ON."

Terry: LIKE

CINDERELLA, A YOUNG GIRL

NAMED BESANA WAS FORCED TO

BE A SERVANT TO HER

FAMILY.

BUT HER STORY WOULD NEVER

HAVE HAD A FAIRY TALE

ENDING WITHOUT THE HELP OF

CBN PARTNERS, PEOPLE JUST

LIKE YOU.

Reporter: WHEN VIVA'S

PARENTS DIED, SHE WAS

TAKEN IN MY HER UNCLE.

THEY MADE ME DO LOTS

AND LOTS OF CHORES, LIKE

WASHING THE DISHES AND

CLEANING THE HOUSE.

HE DIDN'T TAKE GOOD CARE

OF ME OR LET ME GO TO

SCHOOL.

Reporter: WHEN PEOPLE

SAW HOW SHE WAS BEING

TREATED, THEY CONTACTED

THE LOVE AND BLESSING

CHILDREN'S HOME.

HER UNCLE LET HER GO TO

THE HOME, WHICH WAS BUILT

ENTIRELY BY "ORPHANS'

PROMISE." HERE VIVA HAS

GROWN UP IN A NEW HOME,

WHERE SHE ISN'T THE

SERVANT GIRL.

I'M REALLY COMFORTABLE

HERE.

I GO TO SCHOOL AND I FEEL

GOOD ABOUT MYSELF.

THINGS I NEVER HAD BEFORE,

LIKE GOOD CLOTHES, I'M NOW

ABLE TO GET.

Reporter: SHE HAS

THRIVED AT THIS CHILDREN'S

HOME.

SHE IS A VERY BRIGHT GIRL.

OUT OF 350 STUDENTS AT HER

SCHOOL, SHE RANKS THIRD.

I KNOW THAT I HAVE A

GOOD FUTURE AHEAD OF ME.

AS LONG AS I CAN GROW UP

HERE, I WILL ENJOY MY

LIFE.

AFTER SCHOOL, I KNOW I CAN

BE ANYTHING I WANT TO BE.

Reporter: BEFORE WE

LEFT, WE TOOK VIVA

SHOPPING TO GET SOME

SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR HER

AND THE OTHER CHILDREN.

THANK YOU!

Reporter: YOU CAN

TELL THAT ALL OF THE KIDS

HERE ARE HAPPY TO HAVE A

HOME AND AN EXTENDED

FAMILY OF 50 BROTHERS AND

SISTERS.

THEY HAVE HOT MEALS EVERY

DAY AND PEOPLE WHO CARE

ABOUT THEM.

I THANK GOD FOR YOU.

AND I PRAY THAT HE WILL

HELP YOU TAKE CARE OF

OTHER CHILDREN LIKE ME.

THANK YOU.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

SOMETIMES WE DON'T REALIZE

HOW SIGNIFICANT IT IS IN

THE LIVES OF ALL OF US, AS

WE'VE GROWN UP, TO KNOW

WE'RE TAKEN CARE OF.

MISS VIRGINIA WAS JUST

TALKING ABOUT GIVING

PEOPLE THAT SENSE THAT I'M

SEEN, I'M VALUED.

EVERY CHILD NOT JUST WANTS

THAT, BUT NEEDS THAT.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS

CBN'S OUT REACH TO

ORPHANED AND VULNERABLE

CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.

AND YOUR GIFTS ALLOW US TO

BE THERE FOR CHILDREN LIKE

VIVA.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TODAY,

WOULD YOU PLEASE CALL AND

HELP US REACH OUT TO EVEN

MORE KIDS.

THERE ARE MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS OF ORPHANS AROUND

THE WORLD.

AND WE DON'T JUST IMPROVE

THEIR LIVES; WE CREATE

LEADERS FOR THEIR NATIONS.

WHEN THEY COME TO KNOW THE

LORD, THEY GET HEALED

EMOTIONALLY.

THEY RECEIVE AN EDUCATION,

QUALITY FOOD.

BE A PART OF MAKING A

DIFFERENCE IN THE TOMORROW

OF THESE KIDS AND THEIR

COUNTRIES.

AND YOU DO THAT BY CALLING

OUR TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE WANT

TO SEND YOU OUR GIFT TO

SAY THANK YOU.

IT'S A VIDEO CALLED

"VICTORY THROUGH LIFE'S

STORMS."

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR

LIFE WHEN STUFF HAPPENS,

AND IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF

US.

PAT SHARES WITH YOU 50

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE THAT

HE HAS GONE THROUGH HERE

AT CBN.

AND HOW GOD HAS STAYED THE

COURSE WITH HIM AND GIVEN

HIM VICTORY IN AREAS THAT

WERE REALLY CHALLENGING

SOMETIMES.

WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO HAVE

THAT.

SO CALL NOW AND THANK YOU

FOR CARING.

I WANT TO REMIND YOU YOU

CAN SEE A WEB INTERVIEW

WITH MICHAELA SIGMON ON

Facebook.COM/THE700CLUB."

PGH.

> THIS IS A VIEWER HAD

SAYS, "DEAR, PAT, I WORK

FOR A SMALL, PRIVATELY

OWNED BUSINESS.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED THE

JOB, I FOUND IT WAS A FUN

JOB.

NOW I FIND IT IS GETTING

OUT OF CONTROL.

I HAVE NOT HAD A RAISE IN

THREE YEARS, AND THEIR

BUSINESS IS A MESS.

I CAN'T APPLY ANYWHERE

ELSE BECAUSE MY BOSS KNOWS

EVERYONE IN OUR SMALL

TOWN.

I DIDN'T REALIZE I WAS

GETTING INVOLVED IN

SOMETHING SO MESSY AND

DISORGANIZED.

WHAT CAN I DO?"

Pat: LIKE IT OR NOT,

YOU'VE GOT TO GET OUT.

EVEN IF YOU HAD TO MOVE TO

ANOTHER COMMUNITY TO FIND

EMPLOYMENT.

THAT WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE,

AND BEFORE LONG YOU'LL

WIND UP 60 YEARS OLD AND

YOUR LIFE IS A MESS AND

YOU'LL WONDER, WHAT DID I

DO WITH MY LIFE?

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE

ABUSED BY SOME MISMANAGED

FAMILY OR FIRM.

Terry: I TOTALLY

AGREE.

Pat: YOU JUST DON'T

NEED THAT.

YOU HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO

THESE PEOPLE.

THERE IS NOTHING

UNCHRISTIAN ABOUT WALKING

OUT OF A DEAL THAT IS BAD.

BUT THE USUAL ADVICE IS,

BEFORE YOU JUMP SHIP, MAKE

SURE YOU HAVE ANOTHER SHIP

TO JUMP TO.

Terry: WISE COUNSEL.

JAMES SAYS, "MY WIFE

AND I MADE A DUMB CHOICE

AND BOUGHT A TRUCK AFTER I

RETIRED FROM THE MILITARY.

WE HAVE PAID IT OFF, BUT

THE TRUCK HAS GOTTEN OLDER

AND NEEDS REPAIRS.

MY WIFE SAID WE SPENT WAY

TOO MUCH ON THE TRUCK AND

SHE WOULD NOT ALLOW ONE

MORE PENNY TO BE SPENT ON

IT.

I THINK IT IS MORE

REASONABLE TO GET THE

TRUCK PAID OFF.

SHE WOULDN'T BUDGE, SO I

TOOK OUT A LOAN TO GET THE

TRUCK FIXED.

SHE FOUND OUT AND IS

REALLY ANGRY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO."

Pat: WHAT YOU SHOULD

DO IS GET YOUR FINANCES IN

ORDER AND YOUR HOUSE IN

ORDER.

IF YOU'RE THE HEAD OF THE

HOUSEHOLD, I THINK YOU

SHOULD MAKE THE DECISIONS.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY

YOUR WIFE DOESN'T WANT TO

REPAIR A TRUCK.

THAT SHOULD BE YOUR

DECISION.

IF YOU'RE THE HEAD OF THE

HOUSEHOLD, YOU MAKE THE

DECISION.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

GALATIANS: "LET US NOT

BECOME WEARY IN WELL-DOING

FORTUNATE AT THE PROPER

TIME WE WILL REAP A

HARVEST IF WE DO NOT GIVE

UP."
