The fearless linebacker who was once haunted by a dream, Virginia Tech’s Andrew Motuapuaka shares what scared him straight. Plus, take a “faith walk” in the ancient land of Israel. Read Transcript


FEED YOUR BODY, FEED

YOUR MIND, HERE IS HOW

YOUR DIET CAN MAKE OR

BREAK YOUR BRAIN.

> PLUS...THE FEARLESS

LINEBACKER WHO WAS ONCE

HAUNTED BY A TEAM.

ANDREW TELLS US WHY SCARED

HIM STRAIGHT.

> AND TAKE A TRIP TO THE

HOLY HANDLE YOU WON'T SEE

IN THE NEWS.

I WOULD NOT TRADE IT

FOR ANYTHING.

ON TODAY'S "THE 700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT CAME LIKE A BOLT OUT OF

THE BLUE.

DONALD TRUMP'S

ANNOUNCEMENT THAT HE IS

GOING TO MEXICO TODAY, ON

THE SAME DAY AS HIS MAJOR

SPEECH ON IMMIGRATION.

Wendy: HILLARY

CLINTON IS ALSO MAKING

NEWS.

STILL MORE OF HER E-MAILS

ABOUT TO BE RELEASED.

AND DEMOCRATS CALLING ON

HER TO CUT TIES WITH THE

CLINTON FOUNDATION.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP WILL BE PAYING A

VISIT TO A NEIGHBOR HE WAS

THOUGHT TO BE PERNSONA NON

GRATA.

THEY'RE BRINGING CRIME,

THEY'RE RAPISTS.

Reporter: TRUMP HAS

VOWED HE WOULD MAKE MEXICO

PAY FOR A WALL.

WE ARE ALSO GOING TO

SECURE OUR BORDER.

Reporter: ANGRY

MEXICAN LEADER LEADERS LIKE

VINCENTE FOX...

I'M NOT GOING TO PAY

FOR THAT (bleep) WALL.

Reporter: TRUMP WILL

MEET WITH MEXICAN

PRESIDENT PENA NIETO.

TRUMP'S VISIT COMES HOURS

BEFORE AN IMPORTANT SPEECH

IN ARIZONA, A SPEECH THAT

WILL CLARIFY HIS STANCE ON

IMMIGRATION.

IT IS A STANCE HIS SON

SAYS HAS NOT CHANGED.

HIS POLICY HAS BEEN THE

SAME FOR THE LAST SIX,

SEVEN, EIGHT MONTHS.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

MORE SCRU SCRUTINY OF HILLARY

CLINTON.

NEW E-MAILS TO BE RELEASED

COULD SHOW HOW HER

RESPONSE TO THE 2012

BENGHAZI ATTACK WAS

BUNDLED.

AND SHE REPEATEDLY CLAIMED

SHE TURNED OVER ALL OF HER

GOVERNMENT-RELATED

E-MAILS.

AND THERE IS MORE.

THE F.B.I. SAYS IT WILL

RELEASE ITS INVESTIGATION

ON HILLARY'S E-MAIL

SERVER.

PLUS, SHE MUST ANSWER

QUESTIONS FROM "JUDICIAL

WATCH" UNDER OATH.

AND SOME SAY HILLARY MUST

GO FARTHER THAN SHE HAS

AND COMPLETELY CULT TIES CUT TIES

WITH THE CLINTON

FOUNDATION.

THE TIMES EDITORIAL SAID:

"ACHIEVING TRUE DISTANCE

FROM THE FOUNDATION IS NOT

ONLY NECESSARY TO ENSURE

ITS EFFECTIVE THAT IS, IT

IS AN ETHICAL IMPERATIVE

FOR MRS. CLINTON."

SHE STILL LEADS IN SWING

STATES, BUT HAS AN EASIER EASIER

ROAD TO WIN THE ELECTORAL

COLLEGES.

BUT THE RACE IS STILL FAR

FROM OVER.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS LIKE SLOW

WATER TORTURE.

YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT SHE

WOULD HAVE DUMPED ALL OF

THOSE THINGS.

IT IS BEING DRIPPED OUT

DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY.

AND THAT IS HER MESSAGE.

SHE IS OFF-MESSAGE.

IS SHE TALKING ABOUT THE

ECONOMY, TAXES, JOBS --

ALL OF THAT?

NONE OF THAT.

IT IS ALL ABOUT E-MAILS,

E-MAILS, AND THE CROOKED

FOUNDATION SHE IS INVOLVED

IN.

AND TRUMP -- IT IS A

MASTER STROKE TO GO DOWN

TO MEXICO.

I THINK IT IS MARVELOUS.

YOU CAN FLY DOWN THERE

REAL QUICKLY.

AND THEN HE HAS A SPEECH

IN ARIZONA AND SO HE FLIES

BACK ACROSS THE BORDER.

IT IS BRILLIANT.

> IN OTHER NEWS, COULD

THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY SOON BE TAKING

OVER SECURITY FOR

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS?

I'M A LITTLE SCARED OF

THAT, BUT THAT'S WHAT

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

HOMELAND SECURITY IS

CONSIDERING DECLARING THE

ELECTION, QUOTE,"CRITICAL

INFRASTRUCTURE," AND IT

WOULD GIVE THE DEPARTMENT

THE SAME ROLE LIKE FOR THE

ELECTRIC POWER GRID, WALL

STREET, AND 14 OTHER MAJOR

ASSETS KEY TO KEEPING THE

COUNTRY RUNNING.

JAY JOHNSON SAYS THE

DEPARTMENT CAREFULLY HAS

TO CONSIDER THAT IDEA.

JOHNSON'S STATEMENT CAME

AT A MEDIA CONFERENCE

EARLIER THIS MONTH, AND

THAT IS BEFORE THE F.B.I.

IDENTIFIED NEW

CYBER-ATTACKS ON TWO STATE

ELECTION BOARDS.

> MOHAMMAD AL-ADNANI WAS

KILLED IN OPERATIONS IN

NORTHERN SYRIA.

THAT ADMISSION COMES FROM

ISIS.

IT IS A SIGNIFICANT BLOW

TO THE TERROR GROUP.

ADNANI LAID OUT THE

BLUEPRINT FOR THE ISIS

ATTACKS IN ORLANDO AND

PARIS.

AND HE OFFICIALLY DECLARED

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE

CALIPHATE AND CALLED ON

ALL MUSLIMS TO KILL

NON-MUSLIMS.

SO FAR THE ISLAMIC STATE

HAS LOST STRONGHOLDS IN

FALLUJAH AND RAMADI.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: WE COULD TAKE

THOSE PEOPLE IF WE HAD A

RESOLUTE PRESIDENT.

IT WOULDN'T TAKE MUCH.

THEY ARE A PIP SQUEAK

OUTFIT.

IN THE MUSLIM WORLD, IF

YOU'RE WINNING, YOU'RE

BLESSED BY ALLAH.

AND IF YOU'RE LOSING,

YOU'RE NOT.

IT IS TIME THEY START

LOSING ON A SERIOUS BASIS

OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

AND MOSUL IS THE NEXT

TARGET.

IT MAY BE A LITTLE BLOODY

GETTING IT, BUT WE MUST

TAKE IT BACK.

IN TERMS OF THE COALITION,

IT WOULD BE EASY -- SO

EASY -- TO DECLARE A

KURDISH STATE WITH WHAT IS

IN IRAQ AND WHAT IS IN

SYRIA, AND INCLUDING WHAT

IS IN TURKEY.

SAY THESE KURDS DESERVE A

STATE OF THEIR OWN, AND

WE'RE GOING TO BACK THEM

AND GIVE THEM THE WEAPONS

THEY NEED TO FIGHT BECAUSE

THEY'RE THE ONES WHO ARE

DOING THE MAJOR FIGHTING

IN MOST OF THESE

ENGAGEMENTS.

IN ANY EVENT, IT IS TIME

WE GET WITH IT.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO GET

WITH SOMETHING ELSE.

> WE'VE GOT A HEALTH GUY

WHO IS GOING TO REALLY

TELL US SOME GOOD NEWS.

BUT, JOHN, YOU HAVE

SOMETHING ELSE FIRST.

John: IN HEALTH NEWS,

FOLLOWING THE

MEDITERRANEAN DIET COULD

BE BETTER FOR YOUR HEART

THAN TAKING STATINS.

THAT'S THE CONCLUSION

AFTER A MAJOR NEW STUDY ON

THE IMPACT OF THE

MEDITERRANEAN DIET ON THE

SURVIVAL OF HEART

PATIENTS.

THE LO LONDON TELEGRAPH SAYS

DOCTORS SHOULD RECOMMEND

THE DIET TO PATIENTS

BEFORE PRESCRIBING DRUGS.

THE DIET INCLUDES LARGE

AMOUNTS OF FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES, ALONG WITH

FISH, FOUR OR MORE TIMES A

WEEK, AND MEAT THREE TIMES

A WEEK, AND NUTS AND

SEEDS.

THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET HAS

ALSO BEEN FOUND TO CUT THE

RISK OF OTHER DISEASES,

LIKE DIABETES AND CANCER.

THE MAYO CLINIC CALLS IT

"THE HEART HEALTHY DIET."

Pat: IT IS HEART

HEALTHY.

WE'VE HAD SUSIE COHEN, WHO

IS A BRILLIANT YOUNG LADY,

AND SHE IS SO ATTRACTIVE

AND SO SMART.

AND SHE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK

CALLED "VITAMIN MUGGERS,"

AND SHE TALKS ABOUT WHAT

STATINS DO.

AND THEY ARE DEVASTATING

TO HEART HEALTH,

DEVASTATING.

AND THE WIDESPREAD

PRESCRIBING OF STATINS HAS

BEEN CRITICAL IN HARMING

PEOPLE.

YOU KNOW, THOSE THINGS

HURT YOU.

YOU HAVE TO ACHES AND

PAINS AND THINGS OF PEOPLE

WHO TAKE STATINS.

Wendy: IT REMINDS YOU

OF ALL OF THE COMMERCIALS

DURING THE NEWSHOUR.

EVERYBODY LOOKS SO HAPPY,

BUT IN THE VOICE-OVER, IT

SAYS, THIS COULD KILL YOU.

DRUGS CAN KILL YOU.

WE HAD A GUY ON RECENTLY

WHO WROTE A BOOK, "LET

FOOD BE YOUR MEDICINE,"

AND IT REALLY IS THE BEST

MEDICINE.

Pat: STATINS ARE

DEADLY.

AS SUSIE COHEN WROTE,

VITAMIN MUGGERS, THEY TAKE

THE CO CO-Q10 OUT OF YOUR

BRAIN.

Wendy: AND EVERYBODY

STOPPED EATING EGG YOLKS

BECAUSE OF THAT, AND YOU

NEED THE FAT.

Pat: YOU NEED THE

FAT.

EGGS ARE GOOD FOR YOU.

Wendy: AND THE YOLKS.

> COMING UP, CAN YOU

WARD OFF DISEASES LIKE

ALZHEIMER'S SIMPLY BY

CHANGING WHAT YOU EAT?

ONE BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

SHARES THE GROUNDBREAKING

RESEARCH WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: WELL, WE'VE GOT

AN EXCITING SEGMENT

FORTUNATE YOU RIGHT NOW.

AND THE KEY ON IT IS A

BOOK CALLED "BRAIN-MAKER."

AND I MIGHT ADD THAT SUSIE

COHEN'S BOOK IS NOT

VITAMIN MUGGER, IT IS

"DRUG MUGGER."

ANYHOW, I'VE THE GOT THIS

BOOK CALLED "BRAIN-MAKER."

AND IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT THINGS YOU CAN

DO TO PROTECT YOUR HEALTH.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE

RIGHT KIND AND THE RIGHT

AMOUNT OF GOOD BACTERIA IN

YOUR GUT.

LORIE JOHNSON EXPLAINS.

Lorie: SCIENTISTS

ESTIMATE 80% OF OUR IMMUNE

SYSTEM IS LOCATED IN OUR

INTESTINAL TRACT, KNOWN AS

THE GUT.

THAT MEANS OUR GUT HEALTH

DETERMINES OUR OVERALL

HEALTH, WHETHER WE SUCCUMB

TO ALL KINDS OF ILLNESSES,

OR ARE ABLE TO FIGHT THEM

OFF.

THE PROBLEM IS, MANY

PEOPLE ARE SORELY LACKING

IN GOOD GUT BACTERIA,

MAINLY BECAUSE THEY EAT

TOO MANY PROCESSED FOODS

OR TAKE TOO MANY

ANTIBIOTICS.

HOW DO WE FIX IT?

IN HIS BOOK, "BRAIN-MAKER"

NEUROLOGIST DAVID

PERLMUTTER SAYS FOODS THAT

CONTAIN PROBOTT PROBIOTICS ARE A

SOURCE.

IT WILL NOT ONLY HEAL YOUR

BODY BUT PROTECT YOUR

BRAIN AS WELL.

Pat: DR. PER PERLMUTTER

SAYS IT HASN'T BEEN HERE

IN A WHILE.

I AM GLAD TO BE BACK.

Pat: WHY ARE PEOPLE

SO SIC?

>SICK? IN A WORD,

INFLAMMATION.

IT IS THE CORNER STONE OF

DIABETES, CANCER, HEART

DISEASE, AND EVEN OBESITY.

THESE ARE INFLAMMATORY

CONDITIONS.

AND WHAT WE NOW UNDERSTAND

IS THAT INFLAMMATION IN

THE BODY IS REGULATED BY

THE VERY BACTERIA THAT

LIVE WITHIN THE GUT.

Pat: YOU MEAN THIS

GUT DOWN HERE THAT

EVERYBODY DOESN'T WANT TO

TALK ABOUT TOO MUCH

BECAUSE IT DOESN'T SOUND

PRETTY -- YOUR GUT

REGULATES THE INFLAMMATION

IN YOUR BODY?

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND THEREFORE OUR GUT

BACTERIA PLAYS SUCH A BIG

ROLE IN DETERMINING OUR

HEALTH DESTINY.

WHO KNEW?

Pat: THERE ARE THINGS

CALLED PREBIOTICS AND

PROBIOTICS, WHAT ARE THEY?

WE WANT TO CULTIVATE

GOOD BACTERIA BECAUSE

THAT'S THE WAY WE CAN

REMAIN HEALTHY.

A PROBIOTIC, THIS IS GOOD

BACTERIA, PUT BACK THE

GOOD BACTERIA, AND BALANCE

INFLAMMATION AND HELP US

EVEN LOSE WEIGHT.

Pat: IN YOUR BOOK,

YOU ARE ON THE SUBSTANCE

THEY ADD TO WHEAT.

TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY PUT

INTO WHEAT, INTO THE BREAD

PEOPLE EAT SO MUCH OF.

IT IS NOT THAT IT IS

PUT IN, BUT GLUTEN IS PART

OF WHEAT --

Pat: DON'T THEY ADD

GLUTEN?

NO.

IT IS A NATURAL PART OF

THE WHEAT.

IT TURNS OUT THAT GLUTEN

IN ALL PEOPLE, AND NOT

JUST THOSE WITH CELIAC

DISEASE -- IT INCREASES

THE LEAKINESS OF THE GUT,

AND INCREASES

INFLAMMATION, AND THAT

PAVES THE WAY FOR THE

DREADED THINGS WE DON'T

WANT TO GET.

WHY DO WE TALK ABOUT THIS

STUFF?

PAT, YOU SAID OVER THE

YEARS, WE'VE GOT TO STAND

UP FOR WHAT WE BELIEVE.

AND YOU'VE MADE IT VERY

CLEAR TO US FOR YEARS AND

YEARS.

I THINK THIS IS

REVOLUTIONARY INFORMATION.

WE WERE TOLD YEARS AGO

THAT ALL GERMS WERE BAD.

THIS GERM THEORY OF

DISEASE THAT WE HAD TO

FEAR GERMS.

BUT MOST OF THE BUGS, THE

GERMS THAT LIVE WITHIN US,

ARE HOPING TO KEEP US

HEALTHY.

AND EATING FOODS THAT ARE

FERMENTED, FOR EXAMPLE,

FOODS LOOKS KIMCHI AND

SAUERKRAUT, AND DRINKING

KOMBUCHA, AND TAKING A

GOOD PREBIOTIC REGULATES

OUR GUT.

Pat: THERE IS A

TREMENDOUS DESIRE TO CURE

DISEASES.

SO DOCTORS PRESCRIBE

ANTIBIOTICS BY THE

FISTFUL, FOR LITTLE

CHILDREN AND OTHERS.

WHAT DOES THAT DO TO THE

GUT?

IT IS DRAMATIC.

ONE COURSE OF AN ANTIBIOTICS

WILL CHANGE THE COURSE OF

A PERSON'S LIFE FOR YEARS.

I'M NOT SAYING WE

SHOULDN'T USE ANTIBIOTICS

BECAUSE THEY CAN SAVE

LIVES.

BUT TO GIVE THEM TO OUR

CHILDREN FOR A COLD IS

OVERWHELMING.

70% OF THE ANTIBIOTICS

USED IN AMERICA GO INTO

THE FOODS THAT MAKE THE

CATTLE BIGGER, MAKE THE

CHICKEN HAVE MORE FAT.

Pat: IN OTHER WORDS,

EVERYBODY IS EATING

FOOD -- WE ALL EAT THAT

FOOD, AND THAT IS KILLING

THE GUT BACTERIA, WHICH IS

KEEPING US FROM HAVING

INFLAMMATION.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND EVEN MORE INCREDIBLE

IS, FOR THE PAST FEW

YEARS, WE'VE WONDERED WHY

IS IT, FOR EXAMPLE, THAT

PEOPLE WHO ARE DRINKING

DIET DRINKS, FOR EXAMPLE,

ARE GAINING WEIGHT?

IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

YOU'RE DRINKING A BEVERAGE

THAT HAS NO SUGAR AND NO

CALORIES, AND YET PEOPLE

ARE GETTING FATTER.

IT TURNS OUT THAT THE

REASON THAT IS HAPPENING

IS BECAUSE OF THE AFFECT

OF THE ARTIFICIAL

SWEETENERS ON DAMAGING THE

GUT BACTERIA, JUST LIKE

ANTIBIOTICS.

Pat: YOU MEAN SWEET

AND LOW AND ALL OF THOSE

OTHER SWEETENERS DAMAGE

THE GUT BACTERIA?

THEY DAMAGE THE GUT

BACTERIA AND ASSOCIATED

WITH A DRAMATIC RISK OF

WEIGHT GAIN AND EVEN

DIABETES.

THE REASON IN THE 1950s

THAT FARMERS BEGAN GIVING

ANTIBIOTICS TO THE CATTLE

IS BECAUSE IT MADE THEM

FATTER.

IT TURNS OUT THE SAME

THING IS HAPPENING IN

HUMANS.

WE'VE GOT TO NURTURE OUR

GOOD BACTERIA.

WE CAN CHANGE OUR HEALTH

DESTINY.

Pat: IS THERE ANY

SWEETENER FOR PEOPLE WHO

DON'T WANT TO EAT SUGAR.

MY VOTE IS WE TRY TO

KEEP PEOPLE AWAY FROM

GIVING IN TO THE NOTION

THAT THEY NEED SWEETS.

THE LESS YOU CATER TO

THAT, THE LESS LIKELY YOU

ARE TO SLIP AND EAT THE

FOODS THAT ARE

INAPPROPRIATE FOR YOU.

GOT TO GET RID OF THE

SUGAR.

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE

NOTION THESE ARE HARD

CHANGES TO MAKE IN THE

DIET.

I ALWAYS SAY HALF-WAY

MEASURES ONLY WORK HALF

WAY.

I WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO

JUMP IN WITH BOTH FEET AND

MAKE THE CHANGES TODAY.

Pat: WE'VE GOT

KIMCHI, AND WHAT ELSE HAVE

YOU GOT?

THESE ARE VARIOUS TYPES OF

VEGETABLES.

ARE THESE PRE OR PRO?

THESE DON'T HAVE A LOT

OF PROBIOTICS IN THEM, BUT

THEY ARE PREBIOTICS.

ASPARAGUS, GARLIC, LEAKS,

ONIONS -- THEY HAVE A

SPECIFIC TYPE OF FIBER

THAT CAUSES THE GUT

BACTERIA TO GROW.

SO YOU'RE NURTURING YOUR

GUT BACTERIA.

AS I TALK ABOUT IN

"BRAIN-MAKER," HOW DO YOU

KEEP THOSE GOOD BACTERIA

HEALTHY AND THRIVE.

THEY MAKE

NEUROTRANSMITTERS,

CHEMICALS THAT BALANCE OUR

MOOD.

Pat: IN OUR GUT,

THOSE BACTERIA DO THAT?

THERE IS 100 TRILLION.

THOSE MICROBES IN YOUR GUT

OUTNUMBER THE CELLS IN

YOUR BODY BY A RATIO OF 10

TO 1.

YOU ARE MORE GUT BACTERIA

THAN YOU ARE PAT

ROBERTSON.

WHO KNEW?

Pat: YOU'RE LOOKING

AT A GUT BACTERIA TALKING

TO YOU ON TELEVISION.

I'VE NEVER HAD SUCH AN

HONOR IN MY LIFE.

> ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

IS A DREAD DISEASE IS

ALZHEIMER'S.

WILL THIS AFFECT

ALZHEIMER'S?

WE ARE SQUARELY LOOKING

AT ALZHEIMER'S IN TERMS OF

THE ROLE OF INFLAMMATION.

LET'S MAKE IT VERY CLEAR,

ALZHEIMER'S IS AN

INFLAMMATORY CONDITION,

AND INFLAMMATION IS

GOVERNED BY THE BACTERIA

IN THE GUT.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN SPENT

REALLY TO GET THE WORD OUT

THAT WE CAN PREVENT THAT

DREADED DISEASE,

ALZHEIMER'S, AFFECTING

5.4 MILLION AMERICANS, FOR

WHICH WE HAVE NO TREATMENT

TO DATE.

NONE WHATSOEVER, AND YET

IT IS A PREVENTABLE DEC.

PatDISEASE.

Pat: PREVENTABLE HOW?

BY LOWERING OUR SUGAR

INTAKE, AND EATING THE

GOOD FATS, THINGS LIKE

COCONUT OIL, AND MOST

IMPORTANTLY NURTURING OUR

GUT BACTERIA.

THAT'S NEW SCIENCE.

Pat: I'VE HAD

ANTIBIOTICS, AND I'VE HAD

INTESTINAL SOMETHING OR

ANOTHER.

AND NOW ALL OF THOSE

LITTLE GUT FELLOWS HAVE

BEEN KILLED.

HOW DO I GET THEM BACK?

THIS IS WHAT YOU DO:

YOU GET A VERY HIGH

POTENCY PROBOSTIC.

PROBIOTIC.

AND YOU'VE GOT TO BE

CAREFUL ABOUT THE OTHER

MEDICINES YOU MAY BE

TAKING, LIKE IBUPROFEN,

AND THE ACID-BLOCKING

DRUGS.

YOU MENTIONED STATIN

MEDICATION AFFECTING THE

BRAIN AND THE BODY.

TRUE.

WE NEED THINGS LIKE

CHOLESTEROL AND VITAMIN

"D," AND WE NEED

PROBIOTICS.

VERY, VERY IMPORTANT.

Pat: WE'RE LOOKING AT

ALL OF THE PAINKILLERS,

AND THEY'RE GUT KILLERS?

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND A BIG STUDY JUST WAS

PUBLISHED FROM STANFORD

SHOWING THAT YOUR RISK OF

HEART ATTACK, IF YOU TAKE

THESE ACID-BLOCKING DRUGS,

IS INCREASED BY 14%, AND

RISK OF DEATH BY HEART

ATTACK IS DOUBLED, BY JUST

TAKING THAT DRUG.

Pat: GIVE US THE

NAMES OF SOME OF THOSE?

PEPCID, FOR EXAMPLE,

OVER THE COUNTER.

Pat: PEPCID IS ONE?

PEPCID IS ONE.

AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

IBUPROFEN, WHICH YOU FIND

IN A WHOLE HOST OF

MEDICATION.

THESE DAMAGE THE GUT

BACTERIA.

THAT IS THE MECHANISM THAT

CAUSES MANY OF THE SIDE

EFFECTS OF THESE VERY

COMMONLY PRESCRIBED

MEDICATIONS.

Pat: YOU KNOW THE

ADVERTISEMENTS -- JUST

GIVE ME MY ALEVES, AND

EVERYTHING IS WELL WITH MY

LIFE.

WE HAVE TO PRACTICE

UNDER THE NOTION OF "ABOVE

ALL, DO NO HARM."

AND WE HAVE TO LOOK AT

WHAT IS CALLED THE RISK

RATIO.

WHEN THEY'RE TALKING ON

THE TELEVISION COMMERCIAL

ABOUT THE TERRIBLE SIDE

EFFECTS, THERE IS A LOT OF

VISUALS, AND YOU DON'T

REALLY HEAR THE FACT THAT

THESE DRUGS CAN CAUSE SUCH

DAMAGE TO THE BODY.

AGAIN, WE'RE LOOKING AT

THIS NOW THROUGH A WHOLE

NEW LENS, INFORMATION WE

DIDN'T HAVE BEFORE.

Pat: AND SOME DRUGS

CAUSE BLEEDING BY THE WAY.

I WAS IRON DEFICIENT, AND

BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE

THINGS I WAS TAKING --

SUPPOSEDLY YOU'VE GOT

ACHES AND PAINS IF YOU

WORK OUT, AND YOU TAKE A

COUPLE OF IBUPROFEN --

IT IS GOOD THAT YOUR

MUSCLES ARE SORE WHEN

YOU'RE EXERCISING.

IT IS TELLING YOU YOU ARE

DOING YOUR EXERCISE.

WE HAVE A WHOLE NEW LENS

TO LOOK AT THESE DRUGS

THERE.

AND THAT IS, HOW ARE THEY

AFFECTING OUR GUT

BACTERIA?

AND THAT'S A VERY, VERY

POWERFUL LEVERAGE POINT

FOR HEALTH, FOR LOSING

WEALTH.

FOR REDUCING INFLAMMATION.

REDUCING OUR RISK FOR

HEART DISEASE, DIABETES,

AND EVEN ALZHEIMER'S.

Pat: IN TH IS THE MEDICAL

PROFESSION GOING ALONG

WITH WHAT YOU'RE SAYING?

I PREFER TO THINK OF IT

AS LIGHTING THE CANDLE AND

NOT CURSING THE DARKNESS,

BUT THERE IS RESEARCH ON

THE MICROBIRON BEING

CARRIED OUT AT EVERY

MEDICAL INSTITUTION

BECAUSE THIS IS THE

LEADING EDGE.

Pat: YOU'RE USING A

TERM, MICROBIRON -- DID

YOU MAKE THAT UP?

I WISH I MADE IT UP.

IT REFERS TO THESE

ORGANISMS THAT LIVE WITHIN

US AND ON OUR SKIN.

THEY MAKE VITAMINS FOR US,

THEY KEEP OUR IMMUNE

SYSTEM BALANCED, THEY

REGULATE INFLAMMATION, AND

SO MANY OF THESE DISEASES

ARE EXPLODING ON THE

SCENE, AND NOW WE'RE

BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND

WHY.

WHY IT IS, FOR EXAMPLE,

THAT ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

ARE ASSOCIATED WITH

OBESITY, WHICH IS SO

COUNTERINTUITIVE.

Pat: WE HAVE AN

EPIDEMIC OF OBESITY.

YOUNG CHILDREN ARE GETTING

OBESE AT AN EARLY AGE.

WE HAVE A TREMENDOUS

EPIDEMIC OF HEART

CONDITIONS, OF HEART

ATTACKS, OF OTHER TYPES OF

INFLAMMATION, AND CANCER.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE

THINGS THAT ARE CAUSED BY

THIS INFLAMMATION?

I INFLAMMATION IS REALLY

THE MOST POWERFUL PIVOT

POINT FOR VIRTUALLY EVERY

CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE

CONDITION THAT WE DEAL

WITH.

MODERN MEDICINE FOCUSES ON

THE END OF THE FIRE, AND

NOT THE SMOKE.

WE HAVE TO FOCUS ON

PUTTING THE SMOKE OUT.

INFLAMMATION MEANS TO

LIGHT THE FIRE.

Pat: NAME THROUGH OR

FOUR OF THE CONDITIONS.

CORONARY ARTERY

DISEASE, ALZHEIMER'S,

M.S., DIABETES, OBESITY --

THESE ARE ALL INFLAMMATORY

DISORDERS.

Pat: M.S. -- ALL OF

THESE THINGS?

ANY DISEASE THAT IS

TREATED WITH INFLAMMATION

RE-DUCININFLAMMATION-REDUCING

DRUGS, LIKE LUPUS AND

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES, AND

THEY ARE ALL CAUSED BY THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM GOING OUT OF

WHACK.

Pat: AND DOCTORS ARE

GIVING THE DRUGS THAT ARE

GIVING THIS INFLAMMATION.

THEY'RE DIGGING THE

HOLE DEEPER AND DEEPER.

AND THEN PEOPLE NEED MORE

AND MORE OF THE

MEDICATION.

WE'VE GOT TO PUSH THE

RESET BUTTON, AND IT

BEGINS WITH THE FOOD THAT

WE EAT.

Pat: WE SCARED TO

DEATH PEOPLE IN THIS

AUDIENCE.

I HOPE YOU'RE SCARED.

HOW DO THEY START.

THIS IS DAY ONE OF A NEW

YOU.

WHAT DO YOU START DOING,

EATING KIMCHI?

YES, SIR.

BUT NOT SCARED.

I WANT PEOPLE TO BE

EMPOWERED AND FEELING

JOYFUL THAT THEY'RE

FINALLY GETTING SOME

INFORMATION.

Pat: WILL THE

PROBIOTIC PILLS HELP?

IT'S AN IMPORTANT PART

OF THE SOLUTION.

BUT WHAT ARE THE LIFESTYLE

FACTORS THAT PEOPLE MAY BE

INVOLVED IN TODAY THAT ARE

COMPROMISING THE GUT

BACTERIA.

THE SUGAR IN THE DIET.

THE LACK OF FIBER.

THE ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS,

AND THE MEDICATIONS NEED

TO BE REVIEWED.

THROUGH THIS NEW IDEA THAT

THEY MAY AFFECT THE GUT

BACTERIA.

Pat: FOLKS, THIS MAY

KEEP YOU ALIVE.

I HOPE IT DOES.

THE DOCTOR'S BOOK IS

CALLED "BRAIN-MAKER," AND

IT IS FASCINATING.

IT IS LOADED WITH

INFORMATION AND FACTS AND

FIGURES AND ANALYSIS OF

WHAT IS GOING ON.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THIS.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

I THINK YOU CAN GET IT

MAYBE THROUGH cbn.com.

BUT IT IS ON AMAZON,

EVERYWHERE?

YES, SIR.

Pat: GOOD TO SEE YOU.

GOOD TO SEE YOU YOU

AGAIN.

Pat: I HOPE THE

MEDICAL COMMUNITY WILL BUY

INTO WHAT YOU'RE SAYING

BECAUSE IT IS

REVOLUTIONARY.

IT IS REVOLUTIONARY.

90% OF THE INFORMATION ON

THIS MICROBIRON HAS ONLY

BEEN PUBLISHED IN THE LAST

FIVE YEARS, SO THIS IS

CUTTING-EDGE.

Pat: I'M A FAN OF

NUTS AND BERRIES.

NUTS AND BERRIES ARE GOOD

FOR YOU.

THE SUGARED CEREALS, I'M

AGAINST ALL OF THAT STUFF.

WE HAVE, THROUGH THE

CENTURIES, MANKIND HAS

EXISTED ON A GREEN DIET.

HAVE WE MISSED SOMETHING

THERE?

WAS IT DIFFERENT IN THE

OLD DAYS?

TO SOME DEGREE IT WAS.

SOMETHING ELSE THAT IS

VERY IMPORTANT IS THAT BY

AND LARGE WHEAT IN AMERICA

NOW IS SPRAYED WITH A

CHEMICAL CALLED GLIFOSATE,

AND THAT HAS A POWERFUL

DETRIMENTAL ROLE IN TERMS

OF DAMAGING OUR GUT

BACTERIA.

SO I THINK IT IS REALLY

IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON

WELCOMING FAT BACK TO THE

TABLE.

THIS DREADED FAT THAT WE

WERE ALL TOLD TO AVOID

OVER THE YEARS.

WE'VE ALWAYS EATEN GOOD

FAT.

AND THAT'S AN IMPORTANT

POINT, HEALTHFUL FAT LIKE

COCONUT OIL AND OLIVE OIL

AND NUTS AND SEEDS, AND

AVOIDING THOSE FATS THAT

HAVE BEEN MODIFIED.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE'VE

GOT TO RECOGNIZE THAT

FIBER, ESPECIALLY

PREBIOTIC FIBER, IS

VITALLY IMPORTANT FOR

MAINTAINING GUT HEALTH.

Pat: THAT'S

VEGETABLES?

ABSOLUTELY.

Pat: DOCTOR, THANK

YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

HERE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU

HEARD IT HERE ON "THE 700

CLUB."

WENDY, YOU'RE A PICTURE OF

HEALTH.

TELL US HOW YOU DO IT.

Wendy: I LOVE GARLIC.

I'M NOT SURE ABOUT KIMCHI

THE AT EVERY MEAL.

MAYBE THAT IS AN ACQUIRED

TASTE.

GREAT INTERVIEW.

> ON SATURDAYS, HE IS

THE LEADER OF VIRGINIA

TECH'S DEFENSE, BUT

THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE

WEEK, HE IS AN EVER DAY

SOLDIER FOR GOD.

CBN SPORTS SITS DOWN WITH

ANDREW NEXT.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

IF YOU'VE BEEN NOTICING

THAT PEOPLE HAVE HAD A

LITTLE EXTRA SCHOOL

SPIRIT, THERE IS A GOOD

REASON WHY.

WHOA!

I CAN'T STAND IT, IT IS

ANOTHER WEEK AND THE

COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON IS

UPON US.

HERE IN VIRGINIA, YOU'LL

SEE NO SHORTAGE AND BLUE,

WHITE, AND ORANGE AS

ALUMNI AND FANS ALIKE WILL

BE CHEERING FOR A TEAM

KNOWN AS THE HOKIES.

Wendy: I DON'T KNOW

THAT CHEER.

Pat: I GREW UP IN

THAT PART OF THE STATE OF

VIRGINIA TECH.

SEAN BROWN HAD A CHANCE TO

INTERVIEW THEIR STAR

LINEBACKER, AND YOU'LL

HEAR WHY HE IS PLAYING FOR

AN AUDIENCE OF ONE.

Reporter: VIRGINIA

TECH LINEBACKER AND ANDREW

MOTUAPUAKA SHOWS PROMISE

OF A FUTURE IN THE NFL.

BUT A FEW YEARS AGO, HE

WAS IN DANGER OF

SQUANDERING AWAY HIS

FOOTBALL CAREER.

MESSING WITH GIRLS,

DRINKING EVERY WEEKEND, I

STARTED SMOKING.

EVERYTHING THAT WAS

FEELING GOOD AT THE TIME.

Reporter: ANDREW AND

THIS FAMILY ARE ORIGINALLY

FROM TONGA, A SMALL ISLAND

IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC.

HIS FATHER WAS MILITARY

AND MOVED THE FAMILY TO

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA.

THOUGH RAISED WITH

CHRISTIAN VALUES, HE HAD

NEVER ACCEPTED CHRIST INTO

HIS HEART.

BUT HIS PARENTS STRESSED

THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER.

THAT'S ALL I REMEMBER

AS A LITTLE KID, GROWING

UP, FROM MY PARENTS TO MY

AUNTS, MY UNCLES, REMEMBER

TO SAY YOUR PRAYERS.

Reporter: BUT SAYING

HIS PRAYERS WAS ALL BUT

FORGOTTEN WHEN HE CAME TO

VIRGINIA TECH ON A

FOOTBALL SCHOLARSHIP.

HE QUICKLY FELL TO THE

WOES OF THE COLLEGE PARTY

SCENE AND BEING AN

ATHLETE.

I'M A LINEBACKER, AND

ME AND MY BOYS WERE

DRINKING AND SMOKING AND

DOING ALL OF THIS STUFF.

AND I DON'T SEE ANYTHING

WRONG WITH IT.

Reporter: DID YOU

FEEL YOU WERE GETTING

EVERYTHING YOU NEEDED FROM

THAT?

DEFINITELY NOT -- WELL,

AT THE TIME I FELT LIKE,

THIS FEELS GOOD, BUT I

NEVER REALLY INTERNALLY

FELT SATISFIED.

Reporter: IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE 2015 SEASON,

ANDREW WAS GIVEN A

STARTING LINEBACKER

POSITION WHEN HIS TEAMMATE

WAS INJURED.

HE FELT ON TOP OF THE

WORLD UNTIL HIS ROOMMATE

TOLD HIM SOMETHING THAT

WOULD HAUNT HIM FOR

MONTHS.

HE TOLD ME HE HAD A

DREAM THAT ME AND ONE OF

MY OTHER TEAMMATES HAD

GOTTEN INTO A BAD

ACCIDENT, A REALLY BAD CAR

ACCIDENT.

AND EVERY TIME I WOULD

SMOKE, I WOULD THINK OF

THESE THINGS.

FOR SOME REASON I WOULD

ALWAYS HAVE THESE THOUGHTS

I'M GOING TO GET INTO THIS

BIG CAR ACCIDENT.

Reporter: ANDREW GREW

FEARFUL HE COULD LOSE

EVERYTHING HE WORKED FOR,

AND POSSIBLY HIS LIFE.

ON WINTER BREAK THAT YEAR,

HE AND HIS BROTHER WERE

GETTING READY TO DRIVE TO

SEE THEIR SISTER PLAY

VOLLEYBALL, BUT ANDREW WAS

AFRAID TO GET IN THE CAR.

I STARTED CRYING.

I TELL MY BROTHER, MAN,

I'M NOT GOING.

I WAS CRYING MY EYES OUT,

LIKE, MAN, I HAVEN'T BEEN

LIVING RIGHT.

I DON'T EVEN PRAY.

HE TOLD ME, WE SHOULD PRAY

ABOUT IT.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S PRAY.

Reporter: AFTER

PRAYING WITH HIS BROTHER,

ANDREW SAID HE FELT LIKE

SOMETHING HAD CHANGED, BUT

HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

ABOUT IT.

SO WHEN WE WENT BACK TO

SCHOOL, HE RETURNED TO HIS

OLD HABITS.

BUT THIS TIME IT WAS

DIFFERENT.

I SMOKED TWO TIMES.

BUT THE SECOND TIME, I

LITERALLY FELT LIKE I WAS

GOING TO HAVE A HEART

ATTACK.

Reporter: SO HE WENT

TO SEE THE SPORTS CHAPLAIN

AND VIRGINIA TECH.

> WHAT DID HE SAY?

HE SAID, GOD'S GRACE IS

BIGGER THAN ALL OF THAT.

Reporter: STILL

SEEKING ANSWERS, ANDREW

WENT TO A BIBLE STUDY

CALLED "CROSS TRAINING."

AND ONE OF THE SPEAKERS

WAS TALKING ABOUT HAVING

ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS

CHRIST.

HE PRAYED A PRAYER.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, IF YOU

DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE GOING

TO HEAVEN OR HELL, PLEASE

COME UP AND TALK TO ME

AFTERWARDS.

AND I DIDN'T KNOW.

Reporter: AFTERWARDS,

HE TALKED TO THE SPEAKER,

WHO ASKED ANDREW DIRECTLY

IF HE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO

HEAVEN.

I WAS, LIKE, I THINK

I'M GOING TO HEAVEN.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, NO, DO

YOU KNOW FOR SURE YOU'RE

GOING TO HEAVEN?

AND I WAS, LIKE, MAN, I

DON'T KNOW.

Reporter: IT WAS THEN

THAT ANDREW REALIZED WHAT

HE NEEDED TO DO.

SO HE DECIDED TO GIVE HIS

LIFE TO THE LORD.

THAT'S THE DAY WHERE I

SAY, LIKE, I CONFESS WITH

MY MOUTH AND BELIEVE IN MY

HEART.

Reporter: ANDREW NOW

UNDERSTANDS THAT DEFENSE

CAN GO FAR BEYOND THE

FOOTBALL FIELD.

BECAUSE WHILE HE IS

COVERING AN OFFENSE, GOD

HAS HIM COVERED BOTH ON

THE FIELD AND OFF OF IT.

EPHESIANS 6 -- I WEAR

THIS BRACELET ON MY HAND.

IT KIND OF JUST REMINDS

EVERY DAY REALLY JUST

PUTTING ON THE FORM OF

GOD.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE GOING

OUT ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD

AND NOT HAVING YOUR HELMET

ON OR GOING TO A GAME

MISSING KNEE PADS, OR

WHATEVER IT IS, YOU JUST

WOULDN'T FEEL THE SAME ON

THE FIELD IF YOU WERE

MISSING THESE THINGS.

IT REMINDS ME EVERY DAY,

MAN, TO PUT ON THE ARMOR

AND JUST TO GET READY.

Pat: PUT ON THE WHOLE

ARMOR OF GOD, THE BIBLE

SAYS.

THE ARMOR OF GOD.

YOU SEE, THERE IS AN ENEMY

THAT WANTS TO DESTROY YOU.

IT IS NOT A GAME.

IT IS 24 HOURS A DAY.

IT IS WARFARE 24 HOURS A

DAY.

LIKE IT OR NOT.

YOU SAY, I DON'T WANT TO

DO THAT.

YOU CAN'T RETIRE FROM THAT

WAR.

THERE IS NO LEAVE THAT YOU

CAN TAKE.

BECAUSE THE DEVIL WANTS TO

DESTROY YOU, AND HE GETS

YOU AT THE MOST UNEXPECTED

TIMES.

SO ANDREW WAS PUTTING ON

THE WHOLE AR WHOLE ARMOR.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE

LORD, YOU'RE VULNERABLE.

WE TALKED TO THE DOCTOR

ABOUT THE VULNERABILITY WE

HAVE FROM INFLAMMATION

INSIDE OF OUR BODY AND THE

DISEASES THAT COME FROM

IT.

IT IS THE SAME THING

SPIRITUALLY.

IF WE DENT TAKE THE ARMOR

OF GOD, THINGS CAN HAPPEN

TO US SPIRITUALLY.

THE ARMOR IS COMING TO

JESUS CHRIST.

THE SHIELD OF FAITH AND

THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT,

WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS GOD

WANTS TO PUT IN YOUR HAND

SO THAT YOU'LL HAVE ARMOR.

AND IF YOU WANT THAT, ALL

HE SAYS IS, CALL UPON ME

AND I'LL ANSWER YOU, AND

I'LL SHOW YOU GREAT AND

MIGHTY THINGS YOU DIDN'T

KNOW ABOUT.

I'LL SHOW IT TO YOU.

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU.

SO JUST ASK.

WENDY?

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

> WELL, COMING UP,

MODERN-DAY PILGRIMS TALK

ABOUT THEIR FIRST TRIP TO

ISRAEL.

THERE IS NOT ANOTHER

FEELING LIKE WALKING WHERE

CHRIST HAS WALKED.

I'VE BEEN SO MOVED BY

BEING HERE.

I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR

ANYTHING, EITHER.

I'M SO GLAD I CAME.

Wendy: SEE HOW THEIR

TOUR OF THE HOLY LAND MADE

THE BIBLE COME TO LIFE,

AFTER THIS.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A RISING CHRISTIAN

EVANGELIST WHO CONVERTED

FROM ISLAM HAS ANNOUNCED

HE HAS ADVANCED STOMACH

CANCER.

NABIL HAS APPEARED ON CBN

TO SHARE HIS TESTIMONY.

HE GREW UP AS A DEVOUT

MUSLIM AND BELIEVED IN

ISLAM TO BE A RELIGION OF

PEACE.

BUT AFTER SEPTEMBER 11TH,

HE WAS CONFRONTED WITH THE

STARK REALITY OF ISLAM.

AND HE WAS LED TO JESUS

CHRIST.

ON HIS Facebook PAGE HE

ASKED THAT PEOPLE WOULD

FAST AND PRAY FERVENTLY

FOR HIS HEALING.

> PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: WHEN MANY

PEOPLE CONSIDER A TRIP TO

ISRAEL, THEY WONDER, IS IT

SAFE?

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS

FROM JERUSALEM, MOST

TOURISTS TO THE HOLY LAND

NOT ONLY FEEL COMPLETELY

SECURE, THEY DISCOVER A

DESTINATION BEYOND ALL OF

THEIR EXPECTATIONS.

Chris: MUCH OF THE

WORLD ONLY KNOWS ISRAEL

FROM WHAT IT SEASON

TELEVISION NEWS OR READS

ON THE WEB.

THAT TYPICALLY INCLUDES

IMAGES OF VIOLENCE AND

WORDS LIKE "OPPRESSED."

BUT WHAT IS IT REALLY LIKE

IN ISRAEL?

BASED ON WHAT THE NEWS

MEDIA SHOWS, MANY WOULDN'T

EXPECT TO SEE SHOPPING AND

RESTAURANTS AND PEOPLE

GOING ABOUT THEIR DAILY

LIVES.

THIS IS THE MANILA WALL,

JUST OUTSIDE THE WALLS OF

THE OLD CITY.

IT IS A COMBINATION OF

RESTAURANTS, SHOPS, AND

CAFES.

WE TALKED WITH FIRST-TIME

TROWRTTOURISTS ABOUT THEIR

PERCEPTION BEFORE LEAVING

AND THE REALITY THEY

EXPERIENCED AFTER THEIR

ARRIVAL.

> WHAT DID PEOPLE SAY TO

YOU WHEN YOU TOLD THEM YOU

WERE GOING TO COME TO

ISRAEL?

THEY QUESTIONED IT.

THEY SAID, DO YOU REALLY

WANT TO DO THAT?

IS IT SAFE?

Chris: DID THEY SAY,

ARE YOU CRAZY?

THAT WAS A VERY COMMON

COMMENT: ARE YOU CRAZY?

AND I SAID, NO.

NOTHING WAS GOING TO STOP

ME.

PEOPLE COULDN'T TALK ME

OUT OF IT.

Chris: AND HOW DID

YOU FEEL BEFORE YOU CAME?

PROBABLY A LITTLE

APPREHENSIVE BUT EXCITED.

WE COULDN'T WAIT TO SEE

WHERE CHRIST HAS WALKED.

IT WAS MORE THAN I

EXPECTED.

IT WAS AMAZING.

Chris: SOME FELT

COMING TO ISRAEL MIGHT

SEND A MESSAGE IN FIGHTING

BACK AGAINST THE GROWTH OF

TERRORISM.

SOME FRIENDS SAID, WHY

DON'T YOU COME ALONG.

AND I THOUGHT, IT MIGHT BE

DANGEROUS.

BUT LIFE IS DANGEROUS.

I CAME FROM THE BOSTON

MARATHON.

THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON,

I'M NOT GOING TO WORRY

ABOUT IT.

IF YOU STOP MOVING, THE

BAD GUYS WIN.

Chris: TUVIA ARRANGED

THEIR TOUR WITH AN EYE ON

ANCIENT HISTORY AND

CURRENT EVENTS.

I TOLD HIM I WANTED TO

COME OVER HERE AND LOOK AT

THE WORLD THAT IS HERE AND

THE PEOPLE THAT ARE HERE,

AND THE PLACES WHERE THE

BIBLE EVENTS TOOK PLACE.

AND FOR THEM, IT HAS BEEN

AN EYE-OPENING EXPERIENCE.

AND IT'S IN THE CONTEXT OF

ISRAEL TODAY.

Chris: SAMUEL HAS LED

TOURS HER FOR MORE THAN 20

YEARS.

ISRAEL DOESN'T COME IN

THE CATEGORY OF TOURIST

DESTINATIONS.

ISRAEL IS NOT THE BAHAMAS.

ISRAEL IS NOT EVEN PARIS.

ISRAEL IS NOT EVEN WARM.

I BELIEVE ISRAEL IS THE

STAGE OF YOUR FAITH.

AND I BELIEVE COMING TO

ISRAEL WILL ENCOURAGE YOU

IN YOUR WALKING WITH THE

LORD.

Chris: AND WHAT WAS

IT LIKE AFTER THESE

TOURISTS MADE THEIR LEAP

OF FAITH TO COME TO

ISRAEL?

THE ISRAELIS REALLY

HAVE THEIR ACT TOGETHER.

I FELT VERY COMFORTABLE.

THE PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL.

THEY'RE VERY PROFESSIONAL.

THEY'RE VERY CARING.

AND THEY REALLY WANT TO

MAKE US FEEL WELCOME.

IT IS A VERY

SOPHISTICATED,

COSMOPOLITAN CITY.

WHEN WE GOT HERE, THERE

WAS SUCH A PEACE.

THE WHOLE TIME WE HAVE

BEEN HERE, I HAVE NEVER

FELT NOT SAFE.

Chris: AND THEY DID

KNOW ISRAEL HAS BEEN

EXPERIENCING ITS OWN WAVE

OF TERROR.

THEY TOLD US THERE ARE

PLACES YOU DEFINITELY

DON'T WANT TO GO.

BUT THERE ARE PLACES IN

ANY CITY IN THE UNITED

STATES YOU DON'T WANT TO

GO TO.

Chris: THE JERUSALEM

MAYOR TOLD CBN NEWS

DESPITE THE CURRENT

VIOLENCE, JERUSALEM IS A

SAFER CITY THAN MOST.

WE HAVE THE BEST POLICE

IN THE WORLD, THE BEST

SECURITY FORCES PER

CAPITA.

WE'RE AS SAFE AS LONDON,

WHEN YOU REALLY CHECK THE

NUMBERS.

ACTUALLY, WHEN I FLY TO

AMERICA I PRAY TO COME

BACK SAFELY TO ISRAEL

BECAUSE THE CRIME RATES IN

AMERICA ARE SIX TIMES MORE

PER CAPITA THAN IN

JERUSALEM.

Chris: AND HOW DO

THESE FEEL AFTER WALKING

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS?

IT WAS QUITE MOVING.

IT BROUGHT ME TO TEARS A

FEW TIMES.

I DON'T THINK I WILL

EVER READ THE BIBLE THE

SAME WAY ANYMORE.

I'VE BEEN SO MOVED BY

BEING HERE.

I WOULD NOT TRADE IT FOR

ANYTHING.

I FELT THE LORD WITH ME

THROUGH THIS TRIP.

AND HE HAS BEEN SPEAKING

TO MY HEART AND DOING GOOD

WORK IN THERE.

I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR

ANYTHING, EITHER.

I'M SO GLAD I CAME.

Chris: IT ALSO

BROUGHT THE BIBLE TO LIFE.

TO ME IT REALLY TIED

THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE

NEW TESTAMENT TOGETHER,

THAT I COULD NOT HAVE DONE

WITHOUT COMING HERE.

I REALLY BELIEVE WHEN

YOU COME TO ISRAEL, YOU

WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

YOU'LL READ THE BIBLE IN A

DIFFERENT UNDERSTANDING.

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO

VISUALIZE WHATEVER YOU

READ, AND YOU'LL BE ABLE

TO UNDERSTAND THE

JEWISH-CHRISTIAN

BACKGROUND.

AND YOU'LL SEE HOW DEEP

YOUR FAITH IS.

MY PRAYER IS WHEN YOU COME

TO ISRAEL, YOU'LL LEAVE

PRAYING FOR THE CITY OF

JERUSALEM.

Wendy: THERE IS NO

PLACE LIKE IT, PAT.

I'VE BEEN THERE THREE

TIMES.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU

BEEN THERE?

Pat: MAYBE 15, 16.

IT IS LIKE GOING HOME.

Wendy: IT REALLY,

REALLY IS.

UNLESS YOU GO, YOU CAN'T

REALLY EXPLAIN THAT

FEELING TO ANYONE.

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN

TRAVELLING TO THE HOLY

LAND, GO TO

CBNISRAEL.COM.

IT IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING

TO PUT ON YOUR BUCKET

LIST.

> LEROY ASKS, "IS IT A

SIN TO EAT PORK AND

SHELLFISH?"

YOUR QUESTIONS ARE NEXT,

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD ONES.

WE'RE GOING TO START WITH

JEREMY WHO WRITES IN AND

ASKS, "WITH ALL OF THE

MIDDLE EAST VIOLENCE, DO

YOU THINK WE ARE LIVING IN

THE END TIMES?"

Pat: IT SEEMS THAT

WAY.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF

PROPHECIES BEING FULFILLED

RIGHT NOW.

THE ONE I'M LOOKING AT IS

EZEKIEL 38, THE COALITION

THAT IS COMING TOGETHER

AGAINST ISRAEL: IRAN,

TURKEY, LIBYA -- VARIOUS

ONES.

AND THE CAUCUSES REGION OF

RUSSIA, ALL MAKING A

COALITION AGAINST ISRAEL.

I THINK THAISRAEL.

Wendy: LEROY WRITES,

"IS IT A SIN TO EAT FISH

AND SHELLFISH?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT JESUS DECLARED ALL

FOODS CLEAN.

WE'RE FREE FROM THE

DIETARY RESTRICTIONS OF

THE LAW.

THE SHELLFISH -- THOSE

THINGS, LIKE IT OR NOT,

FEED ON GARBAGE.

THEY'RE BOTTOM FEEDERS,

AND IF YOU HAVE A POLLUTED

STREAM, A POLLUTED LAKE, A

POLLUTED OCEAN, THAT'S

WHERE THOSE THINGS GET

THEIR FOOD.

SO PEOPLE GET SICK FROM

EATING SHELLFISH BECAUSE

OF THE TOXINS THEY TAKE

IN.

PORK -- YOU'VE GOT

TRICHINOSIS AND VARIOUS

OTHER WORMS AND DISEASES

BECAUSE THEY DON'T CHEW

THE CUD.

THEY DON'T HAVE A DOUBLE

STOMACH THE WAY THE COW

DOES.

IT WAS GOOD DIETARY --

IT'S NOT A SIN; IT'S

STUPID.

UNLESS THAT PORK IS

WELL-COOKED, AND THE

SHELLFISH -- THE BIBLE

SAYS EAT WHAT HAS FINS AND

SCALES, WHICH HAS TO DO

WITH FISH.

FISH IS GOOD FOR YOU.

Wendy: EVERYBODY IS

SO WANTING BACON.

THERE ARE EVEN PIZZA

COMMERCIALS THAT YOU CAN

GET IT WRAPPED IN BACON.

Pat: THEY CURE THE

NITRATES.

Wendy: VEE SAYS, "MY

HUSBAND AND I MARRIED

ABOUT NINE YEARS AGO.

WHEN WE FIRST MARRIED TOLD

ME THAT THIS ONE NEIGHBOR

WHO WALKS BY WITH HER DOGS

HAD WANTED HIM TO GET WITH

HER TWIN SISTER WHO WAS IN

AN UNHAPPY MARRIAGE.

I FOUND IT VERY

REPREHENSIBLE THAT SOMEONE

WOULD TRY TO PLAY

MATCH-MAKER WITH TWO

PEOPLE ARE MARRIED.

I TRIED TO GET ALONG WITH

THIS NEIGHBOR, EVEN THOUGH

SHORTLY THERE AFTER SHE

WOULD WALK BY AND SAY HI

TO MY SPOUSE AND NOT ME.

AND NOW I FOUND THE TWIN

SISTER IS MAKING AN OFFER

ON THE LOT NEXT DOOR.

ALL OF US ARE STILL

MARRIED TO OUR ORIGINAL

SPOUSES, BUT I FEEL THIS

COULD SPELL TROUBLE.

IS THERE ANYTHING I COULD

DO?"

Pat: I THINK IN THIS

ONE, THEY'RE SETTING YOU

UP.

YOUR HUSBAND IS A HUMAN

BEING, AND IF YOU'VE GOT A

COUPLE OF LADIES ON EITHER

SIDE TRYING TO PUT THE

MOVE ON HIM, YOU INSIST

YOU GET OUT OF THERE AND

FIND ANOTHER HOUSE.

SAY, HONEY, I LOVE YOU.

I WANT TO FIGHT FOR OUR

MARRIAGE, BUT I'M NOT

GOING TO ALLOW THIS TO

CONTINUE.

WE'VE GOT TO MOVE.

YOU'RE NOT WEDDED TO THAT

HOUSE.

YOU CAN SELL IT AND GO GET

ANOTHER ONE.

GET OUT OF THAT

NEIGHBOURHOOD.

Wendy: DIANA WRITES,

"I'M OLD AND MY HEALTH IS

GETTING WORSE ALL OF THE

TIME.

I'M PRAYED OUT.

THE SCRIPTURES ARE COMING

ALIVE BEFORE MY EYES EVERY

DAY, AND I JUST CAN'T

CONCEIVE OF THE EVILS OF

TODAY.

I JUST WANT TO GO HOME TO

BE WITH JESUS.

I DON'T WANT TO ASK FOR

HEALING.

IS THIS A SIN?"

Pat: I DON'T THINK

SO.

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

WHO WANT TO BE WITH THE

LORD.

ELIJAH SAID, TAKE MY LIFE,

LORD.

GET ME OUT OF HERE.

EVEN THE HOLY MEN OF GOD

HAVE WANTED TO BE WITH THE

LORD.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH IT.

IT IS NOT A SIN.

I'M COUNTING ON 120 YEARS,

SO I'VE GOT A FEW MORE

YEARS.

Wendy: YOU'VE GOT A

LONG LIFE AHEAD OF YOU.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: I'M JUST WARMING

UP.

BUT THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS,

TO DEPART AND BE WITH THE

LORD OR TO REMAIN IN THE

FLESH.

TO DEPART AND BE WITH THE

LORD IS FAR BETTER.

ALL OF US WANT TO BE WITH

JESUS, BUT THE QUESTION IS

HOW SOON?

Wendy: IT IS TRUE,

ONCE WE ARE SAVED WE ARE

ALWAYS SAVED.

IS THIS TRUE?

Pat: SALVATION IS

LIKE RIDING A BICYCLE.

YOU KEEP DOING IT.

BUT WHEN YOU STOP

PEDALLING -- THE BIBLE

SAYS FEAR THE FALL.

I BELIEVE GOD KEEPS US

UNTO ETERNITY.

I BELIEVE THAT FIRMLY.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I'M

NOT PRESUMING ON THE LORD

TO SAY, WELL, ONCE SAVED,

YOU'VE GOT ME, REGARDLESS

OF WHAT KIND OF LIFE I

LIVE.

WE MUST WALK WITH GODLY

FEAR, IS WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

THAT'S WHAT I THINK IS

IMPORTANT.

YOU ALWAYS SHOULD FEAR THE

FALL.

SO I'M GOING TO BE OUT

TRYING TO DO MY BEST TO

LIVE FOR JESUS.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

PSALM 24: "THE LORD

ENCAMPS AROUND ALL THOSE

WHO FEAR HIM AND DELIVERS

THEM."

TOMORROW, A YOUNG WOMAN

WHO SAYS SHE WAS ADDICTED

STRIPPING.

HOW SHE STOPPED AND WHY.

WE'LL TELL YOU THAT

TOMORROW.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

AND WE WILL SEE YOU

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
