Wendy: THE EPIC STORY

PITTING BROTHER AGAINST

BROTHER AND A SLAVE

AGAINST AN EMPIRE.

GO INSIDE MARK BURNETT'S

REMAKE OF BEN-HUR.

THE OPPORTUNITY MAY

NEVER COME ALONG AGAIN.

Wendy: PLUS, LOCKED

UP IN FULSOM.

I WAS JUST A DEAD MAN

WALKING.

Wendy: AND FACING A

LIFE SENTENCE, ONE

PRISONER HEARS A VOICE

BEHIND BARS.

I REMEMBER THOSE WORDS

SO CLEARLY: I LOVE YOU,

BILLY.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

> YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS

IN PREP SCHOOL, I LEARNED

A FEW THINGS.

YEARS AGO.

Terry: I HOPE SO.

Pat: YEARS AGO.

AND I HAD A BOXING COACH

WHO SAID, WHEN YOU'RE IN

THE RING WITH A GUY AND

YOU HIT HIM WITH

EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT AND

HE IS STILL STANDING, GET

OUT OF THE RING.

I'M THINKING OF THIS

POLITICAL THING.

HILLARY CLINTON HAS HIT

DONALD TRUMP WITH

EVERYTHING SHE HAS GOT.

SHE HAS THROWN

$100 MILLION WORTH OF ADS

AT HIM.

AND EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS

CHARACTER.

HE DOESN'T DO THIS.

HE CAN'T BE LEADER.

THEY'VE DONE EVERYTHING.

AND GUESS WHAT?

TRUMP IS ABOUT ONE OR TWO

POINTS BEHIND HER IN THE

POLLS.

AND HE HASN'T EVEN SPENT

THE FIRST AD DOLLAR.

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS HE SAID THAT I

THINK IS SO TRUE, I'M OUT

HERE SHOOTING FROM THE

HIP, THINKING OFF THE

CUFF, AS OPPOSED TO USING

THE TELEPROMPTERS -- I

THINK THER HE IS LEARNING THERE

IS A REASON THAT MANY OF

US USE TELEPROMPTERS.

Pat: WHEN WE WERE

FIRST IN THIS THING, WE

DIDN'T HAVE ANY VIDEO OR

ANYTHING.

AND I WAS TEACHING, AND I

WAS SO TIRED, I ACTUALLY

WENT TO SLEEP STANDING UP.

AND I KEPT ON TALKING, AND

I WOKE UP AND I WONDERED

WHAT I HAD BEEN TALKING

ABOUT.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: A LITTLE

SCARY.

Pat: THAT'S LIVE TV.

> OKAY.

TRUMP GAVE A FANTASTIC

SPEECH.

HE HAS HIRED THIS GIRL WHO

USED TO WORK FOR FRANK

LOTTS, AND FRANK IS A

GREAT GUY AND HE IS A

WONDERFUL POLLSTER AND A

GOOD FRIEND.

AND SHE KNOWS HOW TO TOUCH

WOMEN.

TRUMP'S MESSAGE OUT OF

CHARLOTTE WAS MAGNIFICENT.

IF HE CONTINUES ON THAT

SAME COURSE AND HE IS

CLOSING IN ON HILLARY, AND

HE OPENS UP WITH SOME GOOD

TELEVISION -- HE HAS ROGER

AILS WORKING WITH HIM.

HE CAN TURN THIS THING

AROUND.

HILLARY IS VERY

VULNERABLE.

IF THE ECONOMY STAYS WEAK,

SHE IS GOING TO HAVE A

HARD TIME.

SHE'S GOT TO CARRY THE

BURDEN OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

BY THE WAY, AETNA PULLED

OUT OF THE HEALTH CARE

THING.

SO THE OBAMACARE IS

COLLAPSING.

Terry: SLOWLY BY

SURELY.

Pat: IN A YEAR OR

TWO, IT WILL BE GONE

BECAUSE IT IS

UNSUSTAINABLE.

OKAY.

YOU WATCH WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

IT IS REMARKABLE.

REMEMBER, WHEN YOU'RE IN

THE RING AND YOU HIT THE

GUY WITH EVERYTHING YOU'VE

GOT AND HE IS STILL

STANDING, GET OUT OF THE

RING.

AND I'M AFRAID HILLARY --

WE MENTIONED IT YESTERDAY,

WE'LL SAY IT AGAIN, KEEP

YOUR EYES ON WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN WITH JOSEPH

BIDEN AND HILLARY.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO

PULL SOMETHING, IF THEY

CAN.

> THEY FINALLY ADMITTED

IT, $400 MILLION IN CASH,

HUGE BUNDLES OF CASH.

AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT

OF JUSTICSTATE DEPARTMENTSAID, OH, NO, THE RE IS NO

LINK BETWEEN THE RELEASE

OF $400 MILLION AND THE

RELEASE OF AMERICAN

HOSTAGES.

WE'RE NOT PAYING CASH FOR

HOSTAGES.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAID

THE MONEY WAS INDEED TIED

INTO THE RELEASE OF THE

AMERICANS.

THEY HAVE FINALLY COME

CLEAN ON IT.

AND GUESS WHAT?

THE PRICE OF EACH PRISONER

HAS GONE UP DRAMATICALLY.

Terry: THAT

EMBARRASSMENT FOR THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION COMES

AS A NEW IMAGE OF A LITTLE

BOY CAUGHT IN THE HORRORS

OF BATTLE IS REMINDING US

ALL, THE WHOLE WORLD,

ABOUT THE TRAGIC WAR IN

SYRIA.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: IT IS A

VIDEO IMAGE THAT IS

TOUCHING HEARTS AND MINDS

AROUND THE WORLD.

ONE THAT REFOCUSES

ATTENTION ON THE SYRIAN

CIVIL WAR.

RESCUERS PULLED THIS

5-YEAR-OLD OUT OF HIS

APARTMENT BUILDING IN

ALEPPO.

INJURED AND IN SHOCK, THE

BOY WIPES HIS BROW AND

DISCOVERS HE IS BLEEDING.

THE IMAGES WERE CAPTURED

BY ALEPPO MEDIA CENTER, A

GROUP THAT HAS DOCUMENTED

HUMAN RIGHTS ATROCITIES

COMMITTED BY THE ASSAD

REGIME.

THEY INCLUDED THE

CONTINUED USE OF CLUSTER

BOMBS AND CHEMICAL

WEAPONS, DESPITE OBAMAS

DRAWING OF A RED LINE

AGAINST THEIR USE THREE

YEARS AGO.

THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT

BACKED DOWN.

AND SAID IT WOULD EITHER

TURN OVER OR DESTROY ITS

CHEMICAL WEAPONS

STOCKPILE.

ALTHOUGH EVIDENCE SUGGESTS

THE GOVERNMENT IS STILL

USING THE WEAPONS, THE

U.S. HAS TAKEN NO ACTION

TO STOP THE REGIME.

FIGHTING HAS INTENSIFIED

IN ALEPPO, SYRIA'S SECOND

LARGEST CITY, WHERE THE

GOVERNMENT WANTS A VICTORY

AGAINST ANTI-REGIME

REBELS.

A MAJOR WIN HERE MAY LEAD

TO AN END TO THE FIVE AND

A HALF-YEAR-OLD WAR AND

THE SUFFERING OF MILLIONS.

BUT THE TALKS CENTER ON

ONE MAJOR ISSUE: PRESIDENT

ASSAD AND HIS GOVERNMENT

BEING FORCED FROM POWER.

MANY PEOPLE HERE IN

DAMASCUS AND CHRISTIANS

INCLUDED, SAY THEY WANT

BASBASHAR al-ASSAD TO SAY.

BUT THOSE MEETING IN

GENEVA SAY THERE WON'T BE

PEACE UNTIL HE GOES.

THAT MAY CAUSE THE WAR TO

DRAG ON FOR MANY MONTHS OR

YEARS TO COME.

AND REPUBLICANS ARE

SLAMMING PRESIDENT OBAMA

FOR MAKING A $400 MILLION

CASH PAYMENT TO IRAN FOR

THE EXCHANGE AND RELEASE

OF THREE AMERICANS.

PAUL RYAN SAYS THE

ADMINISTRATION HAS MISLED

THE COUNTRY SINCE JANUARY.

RYAN'S REMARKS CAME ON

THURSDAY, AFTER THE STATE

DEPARTMENT ADMITTED THE

PAYMENT WAS MADE, BUT ONLY

AFTER THE PRISONERS WERE

RELEASED.

WE HAVE SOUGHT TO

MAINTAIN MAXIMUM LEVERAGE

UNTIL AFTER AMERICAN

CITIZENS WERE RELEASED.

Reporter: AND THAT

LED TO A SCATHING REBUKE

OF OBAMA FROM DONALD

TRUMP.

HE SAID, WE DON'T PAY

RANSOM, BUT WE DID.

HE LIED ABOUT THE

HOSTAGES, OPENLY AND

BLATENTLY, JUST LIKE HE

LIED ABOUT OBAMACARE.

Reporter: NO WORD YET

FROM HILLARY CLINTON ABOUT

THE IRAN EXCHANGE AND THE

STATE DEPARTMENT

ADMISSION.

PRESIDENT OBAMA INSISTS

THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO.

CRITICS SAY EVEN IF THE

PRESIDENT WAS RIGHT, THERE

WAS NO MONEY EXCHANGED FOR

PRISONERS, IT APPEARS

THERE WAS.

AND THAT MEANS MORE

AMERICANS MAY HAVE A

BOUNTY ON THEIR HEADS IN

THE FUTURE.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHEW!

ISN'T IT AMAZING.

HOW MANY TIMES ARE THEY

GOING TO LIE IN

WASHINGTON?

HOW OFTEN ARE THEY GOING

TO LIE?

HILLARY LIED THROUGH HER

TEETH OVER AND OVER AGAIN,

LIED.

AND THE PRESIDENT, YOU

REMEMBER, IF YOU LIKE YOUR

DOCTOR, YOU CAN KEEP HIM.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTH

CARE, YOU CAN KEEP IT.

BLATENT LIES AND HE KNEW

THEY WERE LIES.

> HERE AT HOME, DONALD

TRUMP HAD A SURPRISING

ADMISSION IN A SPEECH LAST

NIGHT.

IS THIS A NEW, HUMBLER,

GENTLER TRUMP?

John: DONALD TRUMP

EXPRESSED REGRETS FOR SOME

OF HIS PAST REMARKS ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

HE DIDN'T MENTION ANYTHING

SPECIFIC, BUT HE DID ADMIT

HE HASN'T ALWAYS CHOSEN

THE RIGHT WORDS.

THAT WAS BEFORE

CRITICIZING HILLARY

CLINTON FOR A LACK OF

HONESTY.

SOMETIMES IN THE HEAT

OF DEBATE, AND SPEAKING ON

A MULTITUDE OF ISSUES, YOU

DON'T CHOOSE THE RIGHT

WORDS, OR YOU SAY THE

WRONG THING.

I HAVE DONE THAT.

AND, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I

REGRET IT.

WHILE SOMETIMES I CAN BE

TOO HONEST, HILLARY

CLINTON IS THE EXACT

OPPOSITE.

SHE NEVER TELLS THE TRUTH.

ONE LIE AFTER ANOTHER, AND

GETTING WORSE WITH EACH

PASSING DAY.

John: TRUMP IS

TRAILING CLINTON BY FOUR

POINTS, ACCORDING TO A NEW

RESEARCH POLL.

41% TO 37% WITH JUST OVER

TWO AND A HALF MONTHS

UNTIL ELECTION TODAY.

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL

CLINTON SAYS THE CLINTON

FOUNDATION WILL STOP

ACCEPTING FOREIGN AND

CORPORATE DONATIONS IF

HILLARY IS ELECTED

PRESIDENT.

BOTH REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS HAVE QUESTIONED

THE FOUNDATION'S

ACCEPTANCE OF MONEY FROM

COUNTRIES LIKE SAUDI

ARABIA.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: THANK YOU.

IT WASN'T JUST SAUDI

ARABIA.

IT WAS EVERY DICTATOR YOU

CAN THINK OF.

THEY WERE BUYING ACCESS TO

THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND ALSO ACCESS TO BILL

CLINTON AND ACCESS TO THE

SECRETARY OF STATE, WHEN

HIS WIFE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

IT WAS A SHADY, SHOCKING

MISUSE OF POWER.

AND TO SAY THAT HE WON'T

RECEIVE ANYMORE IS

RIDICULOUS.

THEY HAVE RECEIVED A

COUPLE OF BILLION DOLLARS.

IT IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE

FUNDRAISING MECHANISM I

HAVE EVER WITNESSED IN ALL

OF MY LIFE IN THE

CHARITABLE REALM.

SOME BUSINESSES MAY BE

MAKING MORE, BUT FEW HAVE

MADE WHAT THE CLINTON

FOUNDATION HAS MADE.

AND IT'S JUST A SLUSH FUND

FOR BILL AND HILLARY.

WELL, WE'RE NOT GOING TO

TAKE ANYMORE DONATIONS

FROM THESE NASTY PEOPLE.

YEAH, IN YOUR DREAMS.

JOHN?

John: PAT, DONALD

TRUMP IS VISITING

LOUISIANA TO SEE THE

DEVASTATION CAUSED BY THE

HISTORIC FLOODING THERE,

THAT AS THE WHITE HOUSE

SAYS PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

NO PLANS OF INTERRUPTING

HIS VACATION TO TRAVEL TO

THE FLOODED REGION.

MEANWHILE, SOME RESIDENTS

IN LOUISIANA ARE BEGINNING

TO RETURN HOME TO ASSESS

THE DAMAGE, AND "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS STEPPING IN

TO HELP THOSE IN NEED.

"OPERATION BLESSING" BOATS

DELIVERED FOOD AND WATER

TO THOSE WHO ARE STRANDED.

WE ARE COMPLETELY

SURROUNDED BY WATER.

WE'RE DELIVERING

SANDWICHES AND WATER AND

SUPPLIES.

John: THE PEOPLE

THERE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE

HELP BECAUSE AID HAS BEEN

SCARCE DUE TO THE

DANGEROUSLY HIGH WATERS.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

EVER I'VE SEEN WATER OVER

THE HIGHWAY, LIKE I'VE

SEEN IT JUST A FEW DAYS

AGO.

YOU'RE THE FIRST ONES WHO

HAVE COME THROUGH.

THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO COME

YESTERDAY.

AND THEY ONLY COME SO FAR

AND HAVE TO GO BACK.

THEY NEVER EVEN MADE IT

THIS WAY.

John: "OPERATION

BLESSING" SAYS IT WILL

CONTINUE TO WORK

TIRELESSLY TO BRING THE

LOVE OF CHRIST WHERE IT IS

NEEDED.

YOU CAN FIND OUT HOW TO

HELP "OPERATION BLESSING"

BRING HELP TO THOSE FLOOD

VICTIMS BY DONATING OR

VOLUNTEERING.

FOR MORE INFORMATION,

VISIT THEIR WEBSITE AT

ob.org.

Pat: I'M SO PROUD OF

BILL HORAN AND THE TEAM.

THEY ARE DOWN THERE WHERE

PEOPLE ARE HURTING.

I WAS IN KATRINA SHORTLY

AFTER THAT DISASTER DOWN

THERE AND SAW THE WORK OF

"OPERATION BLESSING," AND

I MAY SAY SAW THE SCREW UP

OF FEMA.

IT WAS JUST DISGRACEFUL

HOW BAD THEY WERE.

DISGRACEFUL.

WE SAW IT FIRSTHAND.

WE WERE THERE, FEEDING

ABOUT 30,000 HOT MEALS A

DAY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

REALLY THERE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT

IS A WORTHY CAUSE AND ONE

OF THE MOST EFFICIENT

CHARITIES IN THE WHOLE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

OR IN THE WORLD.

AGAIN, IT'S "OPERATION

BLESSING" DISASTER RELIEF,

OR cbn.com.

THERE IS THE NUMBER.

THEY'RE NOT STOPPING.

THOSE FLOODWATERS HAVEN'T

RECEDED YET.

THEY'RE STILL THERE, AND

THE PEOPLE ARE STILL

HURTING.

THEY NEED TOOLS AND

VOLUNTEERS AND SUPPLIES.

THEY NEED ALL OF THE

THINGS WE'RE BRINGING

THEM.

JOHN?

John: PAT, TWO

AMERICAN SWIMMERS HEAD

HOME FROM THE OLYMPICS IN

RIO DE JANEIRO, ONE DAY

AFTER BEING PULLED OFF A

PLANE TO TESTIFY ABOUT AN

ALLEGED ROBBERY.

THE POLICE IN BRAZIL SAY

THEIR STORY WAS MADE UP.

THE LAWYER FOR A THIRD

U.S. SWIMMER SAID HE WOULD

MAKE A PAYMENT OF $10, 800

AS THEY LEAVE THE CITY

TODAY.

THE U.S. OLYMPIC COMMITTEE

APOLOGIZED TO THE HOSTS IN

RIO AND THE PEOPLE OF

BRAZIL, BUT THE U.S. TEAM

HAS PERFORMED SUPERBLY,

DOMINATING IN THE MEDAL

COUNT.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: WELL, UP NEXT,

THE CLASSIC MOVIE BEN-HUR.

YOU KNOW, I TALKED TO

CHARLTON HESTON ABOUT THAT

CHARIOT RACE, AND I SAID,

THIS THING WAS REALLY

DANGEROUS.

DID YOU DO THAT WITH A

STUNTMAN?

AND HE SAID, NO, I DID IT

MYSELF.

AND I SAID THE TIME WHEN

YOU WERE THROWN OFF THE

FRONT OF THAT CHARIOT --

HE SAID, WELL, IT IS

NOTHING.

IT WAS JUST DRIVING

HORSES.

IT WASN'T A BIG DEAL.

WELL, IT WAS LIKE A BIG

DEAL TO ME.

WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT HOW

THAT CLASSIC IS BEING

REMADE.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT,

IT IS WIDELY CONSIDERED TO

BE ONE OF THE GREATEST OF

ALL TIME FILMS, AND IT HAS

BEEN UPDATED NOW FOR A NEW

GENERATION.

Efrem: YOU GUYS DON'T

DO ANYTHING SMALL, DO YOU?

YEAH.

THIS REDEFINES EPIC,

DOESN'T IT?

Terry: MEET THE CAST

AND THE CREW BEHIND THIS

$100 MILLION BLOCKBUSTER.

IT'S ALL COMING UP NEXT.

Pat: JESUS SPEAKS

MEETS THE FAST AND

FURIOUS.

THAT'S WHAT CRITICS OF

CALLING THE REMAKE OF THE

CLASSIC FILM BEN-HUR,

WHICH OPENS IN THEATERS

TODAY.

THE PRODUCERS, THE HUSBAND

AND WIFE TEAM BEHIND "SON

OF GOD," AND MARK BURNETT

AND ROA ROMA DOWNEY TELL OUR

EFREM GRAHAM THAT THIS IS

AN EPIC ADVENTURE FOR ALL

AGES.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU'RE

FROM, THIS IS DRUM IS YOUR

HOT SEAT.

AND YOUR GOD IS THE GLORY

OF ROME.

Efrem: BEN-HUR IS BUN

OF THE GREATEST STORIES

EVER TOLD AND PRODUCERS

MARK BURNETT AND ROMA

DOWNEY ARE DELIVERING NEW

TWISTS AND TURNS IN THIS

$100 MILLION FILM.

BASED ON THE MORE THAN

130-YEAR-OLD CLASSIC NOVEL

WRITTEN BY GENERAL LOU

WALLACE.

> YOU GUYS DON'T DO

ANYTHING SMALL, DO YOU?

YEAH.

THIS REDEFINES EPIC,

DOESN'T IT?

I THINK PROBABLY ONE OF

THE MOST INTERESTING

THINGS ABOUT BEN-HUR IS

YOU HAVE THIS FICTIONAL

STORY SET AT THIS TIME IN

JERUSALEM.

AND IT GIVES A REAL

HISTORIC AND POLITICAL

CONTEXT TO THE WORLD INTO

WHICH JESUS WAS BORN.

A VERY COMPLICATED TIME.

A TIME OF GREAT CIVIL

UNREST AND UNJUSTICE AND

HEARTACHE AND HEART FOR AN

ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF PEOPLE.

AND WE'RE FOLLOWING THE

JOURNEY OF THESE TWO

BROTHERS, JUDAH AND

MESALLA, AND WE LITERALLY

JUST KIND OF BUMP INTO

JESUS IN THE MARKETPLACE.

Efrem: THE STORY PITS

BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER.

JACK HOUSTON PLAYS JUDAH

BEN-HUR.

YOU STAYED AWAY.

YOU SHOULD HAVE KILLED

ME.

Efrem: YOU INITIALLY

WEREN'T GOING TO TRY OUT

FOR THE ROLE OF JUDAH.

YOU WANTED TO BE MESALLA,

CORRECT?

YEAH.

I THOUGHT I HAD A BETTER

SHOT AT GETTING MESALLA

INITIALLY.

I THINK MESALLA IS ONE OF

THE GREAT CHARACTERS.

BUT IT WAS A NICE SORT OF

SEGUE INTO JUDAH BECAUSE I

THINK IT GAVE ME A VERY

DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF MY

BROTHER.

AND A DEEP LOVE FOR MY

BROTHER.

Efrem: THE BROTHERS,

JUDAH AND MESALLA, BATTLE

IN A FIERCE CHARIOT RACE

WHERE LOSING COULD VERY

WELL MEAN DYING.

[YELLING]

Efrem: HOW MUCH HORSE

TRAINING DID YOU HAVE

BEFORE COMING TO BEN-HUR?

A VAST AMOUNT.

I MEAN, I WAS TAUGHT TO

RIDE A HORSE ON PRINCE OF

PERSIA, MANY, MANY YEARS

AGO.

BUT THE TRAINING ON THIS,

WE ARRIVED, I THINK, SIX

WEEKS BEFORE THE ACTUAL

PRODUCTION.

AND EVERY DAY YOU'RE

LEARNING.

AND WE SHOT THE CHARIOTS

FOR THREE MONTHS OF THE

SIX MONTHS.

Efrem: TO TOBY KEBBELL

AND JACK HOUSTON DID NOT

USE STUNT MEN, EVEN AS

THEIR HORSES REACHED

SPEEDS OF 40 MILES PER

HOUR.

> THE SPEED AT WHICH

YOU'RE GOING,

INTIMIDATING?

YES.

I CHIPPED A TOOTH.

A STONE HIT ME IN A TOOTH.

I GOT A WAD -- IT CAN ONLY

BE DESCRIBED AS A WAD OF

MOUTH FROST THAT COVERED

MY WHOLE VISION.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, THE

DUST IS BEING KICKED UP.

IT WAS ACTUALLY WONDERFUL.

I KNOW IT SOUNDS

REPULSIVE.

IT WAS ACTUALLY A GREAT

EXPERIENCE.

Efrem: THE DIRECTOR

GUIDED THE HORSE RACING

EXPERIENCE WITH CAMERAS AT

EVERY ANGLE.

HE WATCHED HOURS OF NASCAR

AND FORMULA ONE AND

MOTORCYCLE RACES TO

PREPARE.

> IN SHOOTING THIS, I

UNDERSTAND YOU GOT A LOT

OF INSPIRATION FROM

YouTube AND INSTAGRAM.

MORE LESS PHRAM AN INSTAGRAM AND

MORE YouTube.

Efrem: HOW COME?

BECAUSE IN TODAY'S

WORLD WE ARE WATCHING

YouTube VIDEOS FOR

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE

WORLD AND IT IS HOW WE

KNOW ABOUT THE WORLD,

BECAUSE WE'RE WATCHING

YouTube VIDEOS.

Efrem: THE CHARIOT

RACE IS WHAT MOST REMEMBER

FROM THE CRITICALLY

ACCLAIMED 1959 VERSION OF

THE FILM THAT STARRED

CHARLTON HESTON.

MARK, I'VE HEARD YOU SAY

THAT THIS IS ONE --

BEN-HUR, THE STORY, IS ONE

OF YOUR FAVORITES.

WERE YOU INTIMIDATED

TAKING IT ON AS A FILM?

I MEAN, 11 ACADEMY AWARDS?

ANY IN INTIMIDATION OR

CONCERN?

ABSOLUTELY.

COMPLETELY.

AND ALSO FEELING IT WAS

A CALLING, WHEN GARY

BARBER, THE CHAIRMAN OF

MGM CAME TO US, HAVING

SEEN "THE BIBLE" AND "SON

OF GOD" AND REALIZED WHAT

WE BROUGHT TO THOSE

PROJECTS.

HE THOUGHT WE WOULD BE A

GOOD ADDITION TO HIS TEAM

ON BEN-HUR.

WE TALKED IT THROUGH, WE

PRAYED ON IT, AND WE

DECIDED WE SHOULD TAKE THE

CHALLENGE BECAUSE THE

OPPORTUNITY MAY NEVER COME

ALONG AGAIN.

Efrem: RETELLING THIS

STORY IS AN OPPORTUNITY

MANY CAST MEMBERS HOPED

WOULD COME THEIR WAY.

> THIS IS A BIBLICAL

PERIOD PIECE.

HOW WOULD YOU SAY THIS

STORY IS RELEVANT TO 2016,

WHEN AUDIENCES ARE GOING

TO SEE THIS?

THIS STORY IS SO

RELEVANT TO TODAY.

THERE HAVE BEEN WARS

THROUGHOUT HISTORY, BUT

RIGHT NOW YOU'RE SEEING SO

MUCH NEG TIS NEGTIVITY.

MARTIN LUTHER KING SAID,

HATE DOESN'T DRIVE OUT

HATE, ONLY LOVE CAN DO

THAT, AND THIS FILM IS

ABOUT LOVE CONQUERING

HATE.

Efrem: EFREM GRAHAM,

CBN NEWS, LOS ANGELES.

Pat: WELL, I THINK IT

IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU

OUGHT TO GO SEE.

I THINK MARK AND ROMA --

WHAT A WONDERFUL COUPLE.

THEY REALLY LOVE THE LORD.

AND THEY'RE BEAUTIFULMENT

AND MARK IBEAUTIFUL.AND MARK IS SO TALENTE D.

THIS IS A HUGE, HUGE EPIC.

IT IS ONE OF THE GREAT

MOVIES.

AND TO TAKE THAT THING

ON -- I DON'T REMEMBER TWO

BROTHERS FIGHTING IN THE

OTHER ONE.

THE OTHER ONE WAS

BEN-HUR -- HE HAD KNOWN

THE MAN -- I DIDN'T KNOW

THAT.

IT WAS A ROMAN OFFICER, AS

I RECALL THE THE STORY.

IT IS A BEAUTY.

GO SEE IT.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, FOR

PRISONS IT HAS BEEN SAID,

GET BUSY LIVING OR GET

BUSY LYING.

WE WOULD GRAB THE BARS

AND HIT OR HEADS INTO THE

BARS UNTIL YOU DIE.

I WAS GETTING READY TO

BEAT MY HEAD INTO THE BARS

THAT NIGHT.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

STOPPED HIM, WHEN WE

RETURN.

Pat: WHEN THE JUDGE

SENTENCED BILLY HALL TO

PRISON, HE THREW THE BOOK

AT HIM.

HE TOLD BILLY, WE NEVER

WANT TO SEE YOU ON THE

STREETS AGAIN.

BILLY WAS SENT TO FULSOM

STATE PRISON.

HE NEVER EXPECTED TO WALK

OUTSIDE THE WALLS AGAIN.

BUT ONE NIGHT, INSIDE A

CELL ON BLOCK 4A, BILLY

BECAME A FREE MAN.

I WAS DEAD.

I WAS DEAD.

I WAS FINISHED.

MY LIFE WAS AT AN END.

AND THERE WAS NO HOPE FOR

ME.

Reporter: BILLY HALL

SURVIVED THREE TOURS OF

DUTY IN VIETNAM, BUT HIS

DARKEST MOMENTS WERE YET

TO COME.

ALONE, BEHIND BARS IN

FULSOM PRISON.

I WAS JUST A DEAD MAN

WALKING.

I WAS JUST A GUY WAITING

TO DIE.

Reporter: HIS TROUBLE

STARTED SHORTLY AFTER HE

LEFT THE MARINES.

BILLY COULDN'T FOUND WORK

TO SUPPORT HIS YOUNG

FAMILY.

I HAD TO BE THE

ALL-AMERICAN DAD, THE

PERFECT DAD, BECAUSE I'M A

MARINE.

I WAS SO DESPERATE, YOU

KNOW, I WOULD RUN OUT OF

MONEY, AND WE DIDN'T HAVE

THE MONEY ANYMORE, NO CAR.

IT WAS JUST A REAL

DIFFICULT TIME FOR OUR

FAMILY.

Reporter: IN

DESPERATION, HE STARTED

PLANNING AND COMMITTING

ARMED ROBBERIES.

I JUSTIFIED IT BY

SAYING THIS IS A MISSION.

THIS IS MY IN TELL.

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE GOING

TO DO.

THIS IS HOW WE'RE GOING TO

DO IT.

HOLDING PEOPLE HOSTAGE,

TYING THEM UP, AND TAKING

THEM IN A BACK ROOM AND

THEN GOING INTO THE SAFE

AND GETTING THE MONEY OUT

OF THE SAFE.

AND IF OTHER PEOPLE HAD TO

BE DEPRIVED OF WHAT THEY

HAD, THEN THAT JUST WAS

THE END THAT JUSTIFIED THE

MEANS.

Reporter: BILLY GOT

AWAY WITH SEVERAL ARMED

ROBBERIES, BUT SECRETLY HE

HOPED HE WOULD GET CAUGHT.

I WOULD FEEL LIKE THIS

RUN-AWAY FREIGHT TRAIN, NO

BRAKES, AND I'M SPEEDING

DOWN THIS TRACK.

AND I CAN'T QUIT.

WHEN I'M DOING ONE

ROBBERY, I'M THINKING

ABOUT THE FUTURE

ROBBERIES, I'M PLANNING

OTHERS.

AND I CAN'T STOP THIS.

MY MIND IS CONSTANTLY

GOING.

I CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

BILLY WAS CAUSED AND

ARRESTED.

DUE TO THE NUMBER OF

ROBBERIES AND VIOLENT

NATURE OF HIS CRIMES, HE

WAS SENTENCED TO NINE

CONSECUTIVE FIVE TO LIFE

TERMS.

THE REALITY ENTERED I SET IN AS HE

ENTERED FULSOM PRISON.

THAT LACK OF

IDENTITY -- YOU DON'T HAVE

A NAME ANYMORE.

YOU'RE A NUMBER.

B63 -- THAT WAS MY NAME.

YOU'RE A PROPERTY OF THE

STATE.

AND I'M THINKING, ONE DAY

I'M GOING TO DIE IN THIS

CELL.

IF I DIE AN OLD MAN, I DIE

ALONE.

ALONE.

NOBODY IS THERE.

THAT WAS THE EMPTIEST TIME

OF MY LIFE.

Reporter: HIS FRIENDS

AND FAMILY ABANDONED HIM.

ALONE WITH HIS THOUGHTS,

BILLY COULD ONLY THINK OF

ONE WAY OUT.

WHY DON'T YOU JUST KILL

YOURSELF?

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

YOU'RE GOING TO DIE ANY

WAY.

WHY WAIT?

TO KILL OURSELVES THERE,

WE WOULD GRAB THE BARS AND

BEAT OUR HEAD INTO THE

BARS UNTIL BLOOD JUST HEM

RAGEDHEMORRHAGED AND WE WOULD

DIE.

I WAS GETTING READY TO

BEAT MY HEAD AND THERE WAS

ANOTHER VOICE THAT CAME IN

MY HEAD.

AND I REMEMBER THOSE WORDS

SO CLEARLY: I LOVE YOU

BILLY.

I LOVE YOU, BILLY.

> I DIDN'T LOVE MYSELF.

PEOPLE DIDN'T LOVE ME.

THE LETTERS I WROTE WERE

"RETURN TO SENDER."

THEY WOULDN'T EVEN OPEN MY

LETTERS.

GOD, IF YOU'RE FOR REAL,

DO SOMETHING IN MY LIFE

BECAUSE I'M AFRAID TO DIE.

I WANT PEACE.

JUST GIVE ME PEACE.

I WENT TO SLEEP THAT

NIGHT, AND WHEN I WOKE UP

IN THE MORNING, MAN, I

STILL HAD NINE LIFE

SENTENCES.

I WAS STILL IN FULSOM

PRISON.

I WAS STILL WALKING FIVE

STEPS ONE WAY AND SEVEN

STEPS THE OTHER WAY, AND

YET IT WAS BRAND NEW

INSIDE OF ME.

SOMETHING HAPPENED INSIDE

OF ME.

AND I DISCOVERED THAT IT

WAS GOD COMING INTO ME.

IT WASN'T THE GOD I KNEW

FROM THE EXPERIENCE OF

OTHER PEOPLE.

IT WAS NOW I KNOW YOU,

LORD.

I KNOW YOU, GOD.

YOU'RE FOR REAL.

YOU'RE HERE IN ME.

HE IS HERE.

HE IS NEW.

HE IS REAL.

HE IS FRESH.

AND I'M FREE.

I'M FREE.

HE CHANGED ME FROM THE

INSIDE, NOT THE OUTSIDE.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

INTO HIS SENTENCE, HE WAS

CALLED TO THE WARDEN'S

OFFICE.

I WENT TO THE OFFICE

AND SAT DOWN.

AND HE SAYS, B63934, WE'RE

SENDING YOU HOME IN SIX

MONTHS.

AND I COULDN'T EVEN TALK.

MY MOUTH WAS JUST MOVING,

BUT TEARS WERE COMING DOWN

MY FACE.

I WAS STUNNED.

I HADN'T EVEN REACHED THE

FIRST MINIMUM, FIVE YEARS.

THE WARDEN TOOK THAT

PAROLE DATE AND SENT IT TO

THE GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA

AND ASKED THE GOVERNOR TO

APPROVE IT BECAUSE THE

PAROLE BOARD WOULDN'T

APPROVE IT.

THE GATE OPENED, AND I

FELT MYSELF STEPPING OUT

OF A GRAVE INTO LIFE.

AND IT REALLY DOES SMELL

DIFFERENT, THE AIR OUTSIDE

THOSE PRISON WALLS.

Reporter: TO THIS

DAY, HE DOESN'T KNOW WHY

THE WARDEN SECURED HIS

RELEASE.

BUT HE BELIEVES IT WAS A

MIRACLE.

ALL OF THE THINGS THE

DEVIL USED AGAINST ME, GOD

USES AGAINST HIM.

HE PUTS HIS HOLY GHOST

SPIN ON ALL OF THAT SHAME

AND REGRET, AND BREATHS A

MINISTRY OUT OF IT.

Reporter: BILLY HAS

SPENT MUCH OF HIS NEW LIFE

AS A MISSIONARY IN

ETHIOPIA, THANKFUL THAT

GOD HEARD HIS PRAYERS

BEHIND THE WALLS OF FULSOM

PRISON.

IT HAS BEEN ONE MIRACLE

AFTER ANOTHER MIRACLE,

TAKING ME DOWN THIS PATH

AND FOLLOWING HIM INTO THE

UNKNOWN, WALKING WITH THE

GOD OF MIRACLES EVERY DAY,

HOLDING HIS HAND.

WALKING UNDER HIS SMILE.

NO, IT DOESN'T GET ANY

BETTER.

Pat: THE FULLNESS OF

GOD, I LOVE YOU.

I LOVE YOU.

HE RUNS THE UNIVERSE, AND

HE LOOKS DOWN AT A GUY

WITH HOWEVER MANY LIFE

SENTENCES HE HAD, I LOVE.

I LOVE YOU.

AND WHEN HE SAYS TO YOU, I

LOVE YOU -- YOU MAY NOT BE

IN PRISON.

YOU MAY BE IN SOMETHING

YOU THINK IS TERRIBLE.

IT MAY BE A MARRIAGE YOU

THINK IS TERRIBLE.

IT MAY BE A PHYSICAL

CONDITION YOU THINK IS

TERRIBLE.

WHATEVER IT IS, GOD

ALMIGHTY SAYS, I LOVE YOU.

AND HE IS ABLE TO REACH

INTO THE SITUATION

WHEREVER YOU ARE AND MAKE

EVERYTHING RIGHT.

CALL ON HIM NOW.

AND HE'LL ANSWER YOU AND

SHOW YOU A GREAT MANY

THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY

WITH ME THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU DIED FOR ME.

YOU ROSE AGAIN THAT I

MIGHT LIVE.

RIGHT NOW I SURRENDER MY

LIFE TO YOU.

AND I TAKE YOU AS MY

SAVIOR.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I'M

YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT YOU TO GET STARTED.

AND THAT'S THE BEGINNING.

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

NEXT?

I'VE GOT A LITTLE PACKET

HERE AND IT'S CALLED "A

NEW DAY."

THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE, A

NEW DAY.

WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?

WHAT ABOUT READING THE

BIBLE?

WHAT ABOUT PRAYING?

WHAT ABOUT GOING TO

CHURCH?

WHAT IF YOU SIN?

IT'S ALL IN HERE.

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

JUST GO TO YOUR PHONE:

1-800-759-0700.

I PRAYED WITH PAT AND GAVE

MY HEART TO THE LORD.

THERE IS SOMEBODY ON THE

PHONE WHO LOVES YOU.

CALL RIGHT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

TIME FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF

"BRING IT ON".

RANDY SAYS, "I AM 50 YEARS

OLD AND HAVE STRUGGLED

WITH ADDICTIONS TO DRUGS,

ALCOHOL AND PORN.

HOW DO I FIND PURPOSE THIS

LATE IN LIFE?"

YOUR QUESTIONS ARE COMING

UP, SO DON'T GO AWAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

I REALIZED GOD WAS

SAYING, LOOK, YOU CAN KEEP

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CHRISTIANS IN INDIA ARE

DEMANDING A POPULAR FOOD

COMPANY REMOVE A

TELEVISION COMMERCIAL THAT

SAY PRESENTS AN

ANTI-CHRISTIAN BIAS.

THE COMPANY IS AIR THE

ADVERTISEMENT THAT SHOWS A

CROSS OVER A MAP OF INDIA

AND MENTIONS THAT FOREIGN

PRODUCTS ARE HARMFUL TO

PEOPLE.

THE GLOBAL COUNCIL OF

INDIA CHRISTIANS SAYS THE

COMMERCIAL IS SHOCKING,

OBJECTIONABLE, AND

ABSOLUTELY UNWARRANTED.

THEY SAY THE CROSS SHOULD

NOT BE LINKED TO FOREIGN

COMPANIES OR PRODUCTS OR

PRESENTED IN A NEGATIVE

LIGHT.

CHRISTIANITY WAS FIRST

BROUGHT TO INDIA NEARLY

2,000 YEARS AGO BY THE

APOSTLE PAUL.

> A FLORIDA APPEALS

COURT HAS THROWN OUT A

LAWSUIT THAT TRIED TO END

THE STATE'S LARGEST

VOUCHER PROGRAM FOR

PRIVATE SCHOOLS.

THE FLORIDA EDUCATION

ASSOCIATION AND OTHERS

FILED A BRIEF ARGUING THE

METHOD OF FUNDING THE

PROGRAM WAS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL, BUT THE

APPEALS COURT IS BACKING

THE VOUCHER PROGRAM.

IT FUNDS PRIVATE SCHOOL

EDUCATION FOR MORE THAN

90,000 STUDENTS.

THEY SAY IT DOES NOT

VIOLATE STATE LAWS.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, IT IS

TIME TO "BRING IT ON" WITH

THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS THAT

YOU HAVE SENT IN.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM RANDY WHO SAYS, "I

JUST CAME OUT OF MY SIXTH

RELATIONSHIP, ALL HAVE

ENDED DUE TO MY ADDICTION

ISSUES, WHETHER IT IS

DRUGS, ALCOHOL, GAMBLING,

OR PORN.

I'M 50 YEARS OLD AND

FINANCIALLY SECURE, BUT MY

LIFE SEEMS LIKE IT IS

GETTING WORSE.

I'VE GIVEN MY LIFE TO THE

LORD MULTIPLE TIMES AND

I'VE BEEN BAPTIZED, BUT I

FEEL TOTALLY LOST IN MY

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO TURN

OR WHAT TO DO.

NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE ABOUT

ME.

HOW DO I START LIVING A

LIFE THAT MATTERS THIS

LATE IN THE GAME?"

WOW.

Pat: RANDY, YOU'RE

ONLY 50, SO YOU'RE NOT

EXACTLY AN OLD MAN.

YOU THINK YOU ARE, BUT

YOU'RE NOT.

YOU'VE GOT HALF YOUR LIFE

AHEAD OF YOU.

THERE IS AN AWFUL LOT YOU

CAN DO.

YOU'VE GOT AN ADDICTIVE

PERSONALITY.

YOU'RE ADDICTED TO PORN,

YOU'RE ADDICTED TO

ALCOHOL, YOU'RE ADDICTED

TO DRUGS.

YOU SAY, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IS

STOP.

TO BREAK A HABIT TAKES 21

DAYS.

JUST 21 DAYS.

JUST THREE COTTON-PICKING

WEEKS.

THAT'S ALL IT TAKES.

YOU DON'T USE DRUGS FOR 21

DAYS.

YOU DON'T DRINK ALCOHOL

FOR 21 DAYS.

YOU DON'T SMOKE CIGARETTES

FOR 21 DAYS.

YOU DON'T WATCH PORN FOR

21 DAYS.

WHATEVER IT IS.

AND LITTLE BY LITTLEBEGIN

TO LIVE A LIFE FOR THE

LORD.

HE HAS GIVEN YOU FREE

WILL, SO EXERCISE IT.

JESUS SAID TO A MAN, DO

YOU WANT TO BE HEALED.

THE GUY WAS DOWN THERE,

AND HE SAYS, NOBODY HELPS

ME.

WHEN I TRY TO GET INTO THE

WATER, SOMEBODY GETS AHEAD

OF ME.

JESUS SAYS, STAND UP.

DO YOU WANT TO BE HEALED.

SO I SAY, DO YOU WANT TO

BE WELL OR DO YOU WANT TO

KEEP ON WITH THIS STUFF

AND USE EXCUSES.

GET WITH IT.

STAND UP.

Terry: WILLIAM SAYS,

"MY FAMILY AND I ARE GOING

THROUGH A VERY HARD

FINANCIAL TIME AND WE MAY

BE LOSING OUR HOUSE.

I'VE BEEN BETWEEN JOBS AND

BEING A DISABLED VET

DOESN'T HELP WITH THE JOB

SEARCH.

I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR

WORK, BUT IT SEEMS NOTHING

IS COMING THROUGH.

WE HAVE LOST EVERYTHING

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE

TO DO.

PLEASE HELP."

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

ENOUGH ABOUT YOU.

BUT I DO KNOW THERE ARE

AGENCIES SET UP ESPECIALLY

TO HELP YOU.

AND YOU NEED HELP.

IF YOU WERE WOUNDED IN

BATTLE, THE COUNTRY OWES

YOU SOMETHING BESIDES

PUTTING YOU OUT ON THE

STREET.

SO I KNOW THE VETERANS'

ADMINISTRATION IS

DYSFUNCTIONAL, BUT,

NEVERTHELESS, THERE ARE

AGENCIES THAT CAN HELP

YOU.

YOU NEED TO GO IMMEDIATELY

AND ASK FOR SOME KIND OF

HELP.

THEY WILL HELP YOU.

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WILL

HELP YOU.

THE NEXT THING, ARE YOU

LOOKING FOR WORK?

BUT WHAT DO YOU DO?

YOU MAY NEED JOB

RETRAINING.

THERE ARE SO MANY JOBS OUT

THERE RIGHT NOW, JOBS THAT

NEED TO GET FILLED.

YOU CAN START, IF YOU HAVE

TO, FLIPPING BURGERS.

BUT YOU CAN FIND SOMETHING

ELSE.

THERE IS WORK, AND YOU

NEED TO GO LOOK FOR IT.

AND YOU NEED TO GET MAYBE

A TRAINING PROGRAM WHERE

YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL

SKILLS.

OKAY.

Terry: THIS IS ANGEL,

PAT, WHO SAYS, "DEAR PAT,

WITH ALL OF THE PROBLEMS

FACING THE WORLD TODAY,

AND EVEN THOSE FACING OUR

OWN COUNTRY, I WOULD LIKE

TO KNOW IF THE UNITED

STATES WAS ATTACKED BY AN

ORGANIZATION LIKE ISIS,

WOULD IT BE WRONG FOR

CHRISTIANS TO TAKE UP ARMS

AND FIGHT AGAINST THEM?"

Pat: OF COURSE NOT.

THAT HAS BEEN ALL THROUGH

HISTORY.

PEOPLE DEFEND THEMSELVES.

THE RIGHT OF SELF-DEFENSE

IS INHERENT IN ALL OF THE

THOUGHTS ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENS.

THE BIBLE SAYS, YOU SHALL

NOT COMMIT MURDER.

BUT ACTION IN WAR, AS PART

OF AN ARMED FORCES -- IF

THE NATION IS ATTACKED BY

A RADICAL GROUP, IS IT

WRONG TO TAKE UP ARMS TO

FIGHT AGAINST THEM?

OF COURSE NOT.

YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT THOSE WHO WIELD A

SWORD WIELD IT NOT IN VAIN

BECAUSE THEY'RE MINISTERS

OF GOD.

THE BIBLE UNDERSTANDS

THERE ARE ARMED FORCES AND

PEOPLE IN THE ARMED FORCES

WHO ARE DOING GOD'S WORK.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "MY HUSBAND IS

CURRENTLY NOT ABLE TO

ATTEND CHURCH WITH ME AND

OUR CHILDREN DUE TO HIS

CURRENT JOB.

I'VE TRIED TO MAKE FRIENDS

AT CHURCH, BUT I FEEL LIKE

CERTAIN WOMEN I'VE MET TRY

TO AVOID ME.

I'M NOT O OBNOXIOUS.

I'VE WRESTLEDED WITH THIS

MY ENTIRE LIFE.

EVEN THE PASTOR'S WIFE AND

OTHER LADIES SEEM LIKE

THEY DON'T LIKE ME.

I DON'T KNOW WHY.

I BARELY KNOW THEM.

I'M NOT LOOKING FOR THEE.

I JUST WANSYMPATHY.

I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT

TO DO AND HOW TO PRAY."

Pat: SHART START START LOOKING TO

JESUS.

I HAVE RUN INTO PEOPLE --

I KNOW ONE THAT EVERY TIME

YOU GOT AROUND HIM, YOU

JUST WANTED TO KICK HIM.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

THESE PEOPLE.

START THINKING POSITIVE

THOUGHTS.

I LOVE YOU.

I'M HERE WITH LOVE IN MY

HEART, AND I LOVE YOU.

INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT

THE FACT THAT THEY DON'T

LIKE YOU THAT YOU'RE A PER POR PIR

PIRIIA.

IF YOU RADIATE LOVE,

PEOPLE WILL BE DRAWN TO

YOU.

YOU'RE THINKING NEGATIVE

THOUGHTS.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS TO

THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS.

LET THE LORD LOVE YOU AND

YOU LOVE THE LORD.

AND WHEN YOU MEET PEOPLE,

JUST THINK, I LOVE YOU.

SO WE LOVE EACH OTHER.

Terry: GOOD ANSWER.

REALLY, YOU'RE RIGHT.

YOU'RE BATTLING THOUGHTS

ABOUT YOURSELF THAT ARE

WITHIN YOU.

Pat: YOU PROJECT

NEGATIVITY, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO DRIVE PEOPLE

AWAY.

THERE IS MONTHS AG SOMETHING ABOUT

PEOPLE WHO THINK NEGATIVE

THOUGHTS THAT DRIVES

PEOPLE AWAY.

JUST THINK, I LOVE THEM, I

LOVE THEM.

HOW CAN I HELP THEM AND

HOW CAN I SERVE.

THERE IS ALWAYS ROOM FOR

SOMEBODY WHO WANTS TO

SERVE.

OKAY.

Terry: THAT'S ALL WE

HAVE FOR "BRING IT ON".

> CBN'S "ORPHAN'S

PROMISE" IS HARD AT WORK

IN DOZENS OF COUNTRIES

AROUND THE WORLD.

IN UKRAINE, WE MET A YOUNG

MOTHER WHO ONCE HAD TO RUN

AWAY FROM AN ABUSIVE

HUSBAND AND AN INVADING

ARMY.

Terry: 23-YEAR-OLD

TANYA GREW UP AS AN

ORPHAN.

SHE KNOWS THE PAIN OF

ABANDONMENT.

IT WAS VERY HARD.

I HAD NOTHING AND NO ONE

TO LOVE ME.

Terry: TANYA MARRIED

YOUNG AND HAD A SON.

SHE HOPED FOR A BETTER

LIFE.

BUT TANYA DISCOVERED HER

NEW HUSBAND WAS A VIOLENT

ALCOHOLIC.

EVENTUALLY TANYA ESCAPED

FROM HER ABUSIVE HUSBAND.

WITH HER SMALL SAVINGS,

SHE BOUGHT AN OLD, RUNDOWN

HOUSE FOR HER SON AND HER

NEW BABY TO COME.

SHE THOUGHT SHE WAS

FINALLY SAFE.

THEN THE RUSSIAN

INSURGENTS INVADED HER

VILLAGE, AND TANYA HAD TO

RUN FOR HER LIFE AGAIN.

WHEN SHE RETURNED, HER

HOME WAS UNINHABITABLE.

THE WALLS WERE BROKEN.

Terry: TANYA HAD NO

MONEY TO REPAIR HER HOME,

AND NO ONE WOULD HELP.

FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, SHE

WANDERED FROM NEIGHBOR TO

NEIGHBOR, LOOKING FOR

SHELTER.

MY SON ASKS ME, MOM, IS

IT OUR HOME?

AND I HAD TO ANSWER, NO,

MY SON.

WE WILL SPEND A COUPLE OF

NIGHTS HERE AND MOVE

SOMEWHERE AGAIN.

I ASKED GOD TO PROVIDE US

WITH A PROPER HOUSE SO WE

WOULD NOT HAVE TO WANDER.

WE ARE SO TIRED FROM THIS.

Terry: THE PRAYER OF

THIS WEARY MOTHER WAS SOON

ANSWERED.

A TEAM FROM CBN'S

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" HEARD

ABOUT TANYA AND DECIDED TO

REBUILD HER HOUSE.

THE RENOVATION WAS

COMPLETE JUST IN TIME TO

WELCOME TANYA AND HER NEW

BABY HOME FROM THE

HOSPITAL.

WE ALSO GAVE HER A NEW

BABY CARRIAGE AND A CRIB.

WE HAVE A WARM AND

COMFORTABLE AND GOOD HOUSE

NOW.

I CAN BASICALLY COOK FOOD

FOR MY KIDS, CLEAN, AND

PUT EVERYTHING IN ORDER.

Terry: THE GOVERNMENT

PROVIDED A GRANT FOR TANYA

TO ATTEND A TRADE SCHOOL

AND A STIPEN FOR CHILD

CARE UNTIL SHE FINISHES

HER DEGREE.

I'M IN THE SECOND YEAR

OF STUDIES.

Terry: TANYA SAYS THE

GIFT OF A STABLE AND

SECURE HOME WAS THE

BEGINNING OF THE LIFE SHE

DREAMED ABOUT.

I NEVER IMAGINED THAT

ANYONE WOULD EVER HELP SO

MUCH AS YOU DID.

YOU CHANGED MY LIFE A LOT.

YOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING

AS IF IT WAS FOR YOURSELF.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING

PEOPLE LIKE ME.

THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US.

Terry: TANYA IS JUST

ONE OF MANY PEOPLE THAT

HAVE BEEN HELPED IN THAT

WAR ZONE BY CBN AND

"ORPHANS' PROMISE." WE'VE

BROUGHT DIAPERS AND

FORMULA DOWN TO PEOPLE.

FOOD, BREAD.

I JUST CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT

THE NEED THERE IS LIKE.

AND NOW WE SEE IT

ESCALATING AS THAT WHOLE

RUSSIAN GROUP IS COMING

CLOSER TO THE BORDER AND

REINFORCING THEIR TROOPS

THERE.

AND PEOPLE'S LIVES ARE IN

DANGER.

WE HAVE TEAMS THAT GO DOWN

THERE EVERY WEEK, RIGHT

INTO THAT ZONE.

BULLETS FLYING AROUND

THEM, AND THEY'RE BRINGING

THINGS TO PEOPLE IN NEED,

AND EVEN EVACUATING

PEOPLE.

THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE

THINGS.

WE TALKED ABOUT LOUISIANA

AND HOW "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS DOWN THERE IN

THE MIDST OF THAT.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," YOU ARE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE IN PLACES ALL

AND IN THE CHAOS OF THINGS

GOING ON TODAY, WE NEED

SO IF YOU HAVEN'T JOINED

"THE 700 CLUB," DO IT

CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH.

THAT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO.

OUR NUMBER IS EVEN

TOLL-FREE FOR YOU TO CALL.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

SO CALL NOW AND JOIN.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR CARING ABOUT OTHERS

AND FOR YOUR GENEROSITY.

SO WHEN YOU JOIN, WE WANT

YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS.

PAT SHARES WITH US 50

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, AS HE

HAS SEEN GOD MEET HIS

NEEDS THROUGHOUT THE

HISTORY OF CBN.

HERE IS MR. AND

MRS. STEVEN, FROM

SPANAWAY, WASHINGTON.

I DON'T KNOW THEM.

BUT THEY'VE WATCHED

"VICTORY THROUGH LIFE'S

STORMS."

THEY SAY THIS IS

FANTASTIC.

YOU KNOW HOW TO KEEP US

INTERESTED.

THE QUESTION AND ANSWER

SEGMENT WAS EXCELLENT.

IT HELPS US TO GET THROUGH

WHAT WE'RE FACING.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE'RE ALL FACING IT.

WE WANT TO HELP YOU GET

THROUGH WHATEVER STORMS

ARE IN YOUR LIFE.

"VICTORY THROUGH LIFE'S

STORMS," IT IS YOURS WHEN

YOU CALL, SO CALL NOW.

> COMING UP, A WOMAN,

PAIN-FREE AFTER 47 YEARS.

ENERGY WAS PUL PULLSING

THROUGH MY WHOLE BODY.

I HAVEN'T HAD ANY PAIN

SINCE THEN.

Terry: FIND OUT HOW

SHE WAS INSTANTLY HEALED.

> PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR YOU, SO

DON'T GO AWAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Pat: FOR 47 YEARS,

JACKIE BUMGARDENER LIVED

IN PAIN.

THINK OF THAT, 47 YEARS

PAIN.

SOME DAYS WERE WORSE THAN

OTHERS.

EVERY DAY INVOLVED

PAINKILLERS, MORNING AND

NIGHT.

JACKIE THOUGHT SHE WOULD

HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS

PAIN FOR THE REST OF HER

LIFE.

UNTIL ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS VERY

PROGRAM, AND LOOK WHAT

HAPPENED.

AROUND 20 YEARS OLD I

WAS GOING HOME, AND THIS

YOUNG MAN RAN A STOP SIGN

AND HIT THE FRONT OF MY

CAR.

THREW ME AGAINST THE DOOR

AND BENT THE DOOR OUT.

BUT I WAS YOUNG AND

HEALTHY AND WENT TO THE

CHIROPRACTOR.

GOT THINGS JERKED BACK IN

PLACE AND WENT ON FROM

THERE.

WHEN I WOULD WALK OR

EXERCISE, I WOULD HAVE A

STABBING PAIN UNDER MY

RIGHT SHOULDER BLADE.

I THOUGHT THAT EVENTUALLY

THE PAIN WOULD GO AWAY BY

ITSELF.

FOR 47 YEARS I DEALT WITH

THE PAIN RESULTING FROM

THE CAR WRECK.

I WOULD USE ICE PACKS AND

THEN SOMETIMES WARM PACKS.

I WOULD TAKE MEDICATION.

NONE OF THE REMEDIES I

TRIED TO RELIEVE THE PAIN

DID ANYTHING TO HEAL THE

ACTUAL INJURY.

IT BECAME MORE OF A

NUISANCE, MORE PROMINENT.

I WAS UNABLE TO PLAY WITH

MY GRANDCHILDREN.

PICK THEM UP AND SWING

THEM AROUND AND ALL OF THE

THINGS THEY LOVE TO DO.

ONE DAY I WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB" AND GORDON

SAID --

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, PLEASE SAY SHARP

PAIN BEHIND THE RIGHT

SHOULDER BLADE AND IN THE

BACK.

PLEASE SAY THAT.

BECAUSE YOU'RE

EXPERIENCING IT RIGHT NOW,

AND IT JUST WENT AWAY.

YOU ARE HEALED BY THE

STRIPES OF JESUS CHRIST.

AND I SAID, THAT'S --

I'M TAKING THAT.

THAT'S FOR ME.

AND I RAISED MY ARMS UP

HIGH, LIKE I HADN'T BEEN

ABLE TO DO WITHOUT PAIN

UNDER MY RIGHT SHOULDER

BLADE.

ENERGY WAS PULSING THROUGH

MY WHOLE BODY, AND I HAVE

NOT HAD ANY PAIN IN THAT

AREA SINCE THEN.

I CAN KEEP UP WITH THE

GRANDCHILDREN NOW.

I CAN SWING THEM AROUND,

PICK THEM UP, THROW THEM

AROUND, WRESTLE WITH THEM.

ANYTHING THEY WANT ME TO

DO, I CAN DO.

WE HAVE A GREAT TIME.

WHEN I HEARD GORDON SAY

THAT JESUS WANTED TO HEAL

SOMEBODY WITH A SHARP PAIN

UNDER THEIR SHOULDER

BLADE, IT MADE EVERYTHING

I KNEW ABOUT JESUS MORE

REALISTIC.

IT MADE EVERYTHING MORE

REAL BECAUSE HE HAD

TOUCHED ME IN A WAY THAT

NO ONE ELSE CAN DO.

Pat: HE TOUCHED ME IN

A WAY THAT NOBODY ELSE CAN

DO.

HE TOUCHED ME.

ALL RIGHT.

WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?

Terry: THIS IS

DARLENE, AND SHE LIVES IN

JACKSON, GEORGIA.

SHE SUFFERED WITH NIGHT

SWEATS FOR YEARS.

SHE WOULD HAVE TO GET UP

AND CHANGE HER CLOTHES IN

THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, PAT,

YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT SOMEONE

BEING HEALED OF NIGHT

SWEATS.

SHE CLAIMED THE WORLD AND

HAS NOT HAD ANY TROUBLE

SINCE.

A NIGHTLY OCCURRENCE,

GONE.

Pat: MARY, WHO LIVES

IN CALIFORNIA, SHE HAD

BACK ISSUES FOR YEARS.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING,

AND YOU HAD THIS WORD,

"YOU'VE BEEN HAVING AN

ISSUE WITH YOUR BACK.

IT DOESN'T ALLOW YOU TO

STAND UP STRAIGHT."

AND GUESS WHAT, THE LORD

TOUCHED MARY AND SHE STOOD

UP STRAIGHT, AND THAT WAS

IT.

> NOW, WE'RE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER,

FOLKS.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

TOGETHER.

THANK YOU, LORD, FOR WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

I THANK YOU RIGHT NOW FOR

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

I PRAISE YOU, LORD, FOR

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

YOU ARE A GREAT GOD.

YOU ARE THE GOD OF GODS.

THE KING OF KINGS.

THE LORD OF LORDS.

WE WORSHIP YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

A NECK AND SHOULDER

INJURY, THERE HAS BEEN

LIKE A CATCHING IN THAT

AREA.

THE MUSCLE WANTS TO

CONTRACT, AND IT HURTS

EVERY TIME IT DOES IT.

THE LORD JUST TOUCHED AND

HEALED YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Terry: AND SOMEONE

ELSE THAT IS INVOLVED IN,

LIKE, SELF DEFENSE

CLASSES, AND YOU'VE BEEN

INJURED.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW, JUST RECEIVE IT.

Pat: KIDNEY STONES

ARE HEALING RIGHT NOW.

THEY'RE DISSOLVING, AND

YOU'LL NOT HAVE ANYMORE

PROBLEMS WITH KIDNEY

STONES IN JESUS' NAME.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

THE BONES IN THE FALANGE,

IN YOUR FEET, AND YOU'RE

UNCOMFORTABLE WALKING, AND

GOD IS HEALING THAT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: SOMEONE ELSE,

THE NAME IS NICKY -- IT

COULD BE NICHOLAS OR A

GIRL -- AND YOU DON'T FEEL

WORTHY.

YOU JUST FEEL LIKE YOU'RE

A FAILURE.

GOD IS REACHING DOWN TO

YOU RIGHT NOW AND SAYING

YOU ARE PRECIOUS IN MY

SIGHT.

STAND UP TALL, LIFT UP

YOUR EYES, AND RECEIVE THE

ANOINTING OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: AND THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOUR CAROTID

ARTERY IS OPENING UP AND

BLOOD IS FLOWING FREELY

FOR YOU.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

FROM PSALM 29: "THE LORD

GIVES STRENGTH TO HIS

PEOPLE.

THE LORD BLESSES HIS

PEOPLE WITH PEACE."

ON MONDAY, THE SECOND

CAREER OF A SUPER BOWL

WINNER BEN UTECHT MAY NOT

BE WHAT YOU EXPECT.

FOR TERRY AND I AND ALL OF

FOR TERRY AND I AND ALL OF

US, SEE YOU ON MONDAY.
