The 700 Club - October 12, 2016

Minnesota’s wide receiver Charles Johnson says what saved his life. Then, a broken neck, a desperate plea, and a divine response. Read Transcript


ONE VIKING BRUSHED WITH

DEATH.

ZOOM, ZOOM, IT WENT

RIGHT BY ME.

Efrem: CHARLES

JOHNSON TELLS CBN SPORTS

WHAT SAVED HIS LIFE.

THAT COULD HAVE BEEN

THE END OF ME.

Efrem: AND THEN...

SHE WILL BE PAR PARALYZED

FROM THE CHEST DOWN.

Efrem: A DESPERATE

PLEA.

PLEASE GIVE ME

SOMETHING.

PLEASE GIVE LIZ SOMETHING.

Efrem: AND A DIVINE

RESPONSE.

THERE IS NO WAY YOU

COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT THAT

IS A MIRACLE.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS GETTING TO BE THE

YEAR OF THE SECRET DUMP OF

E-MAILS AND LETTERS.

WikiLEAKS HAS JUST

UNLOADED ABOUT ANOTHER

THOUSAND LETTERS, AND I

UNDERSTAND THEY HAVE

10,000 OR MORE WAITING

ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON.

SOME YEARS AGO CLARENCE

THOMAS WAS UP FOR

NOMINATION, AND I

INTERVIEWED ARTICLE ARLEN SPECTOR,

AND WE ASKED THE AUDIENCE

TO CALL IN THEIR FEELING.

WELL, IT WAS A VERY HOT

ISSUE.

AND THERE WERE 400,000

TELEPHONE CALLS THAT HIT

THE SWITCH BOARD IN D.C.

AND SHUT IT DOWN.

SO WHAT DOES THE

"WASHINGTON POST" SAY?

WELL, IT WAS JUST QUOTE

PAT ROBERTSON'S FOLLOWERS

WHO WERE POOR, UNEDUCATED,

AND EASY TO COMMAND.

Terry: EASY TO

COMMAND.

Pat: AND PEOPLE

CALLED HIM ON THAT.

AND HE SAID, WE ALL KNOW

THAT IS TRUE.

THESE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW

ANYTHING.

THAT SCORN IS STILL THERE

AMONG THE ELITE, AND IT IS

COMING OUT IN THESE

E-MAILS.

THEY THINK THAT THE

GENERAL PUBLIC ARE A BUNCH

OF DUMMIES.

AND BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT FOR

THE LIBERAL GLOBALIST

AGENDA OF MAKING SOCIALISM

POPULAR IN AMERICA, THEY

ARE A BASKET OF

DEPLORABLES.

HILLARY HAS SAID IT, AND

SHE ALSO SAID THAT THEY

WERE RACIST, HOMOPHOBIC

AND ALL OF THOSE OTHER

NAMES.

IT FOLLOWED OUT ONE

PERSON, HER HUSBAND -- NOT

THAT, BUT WHO OBAMA PUT IN

OFFICE, HE QUOTED DIRECTLY

FROM IT.

YOU FIND THIS STUFF COMING

UP OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

THE SCORN OF THESE PEOPLE

FOR ANYBODY WHO BELIEVES

IN GOD, BELIEVES IN THE

BIBLE, BELIEVES IN

CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT,

BELIEVES IN THE SEPARATION

OF POWERS AND ALL OF THE

THINGS WE THINK ARE

IMPORTANT.

NOW, THAT'S NUMBER ONE.

NUMBER TWO, I HAVE

LEARNED -- AND I HAVE TO

HAVE ONE OF OUR GUYS CHECK

THIS -- THIS MERRILL

GARDEN THEY PUT UP FOR THE

SUPREME COURT, AND PEOPLE

SAID WHAT A WONDERFUL

JURIST HE WAS, IT TURNS

OUT THAT IN ONE OF HIS

DECISIONS, HE SAID THE

SECOND AMENDMENT, WHICH

HAS TO DO WITH GUNS -- THE

CONSTITUTION SAYS A

WELL-ORDERED MALITIA IS

IMPORTANT, DAH, DAH, DAH,

THE RIGHT OF PEOPLE TO

BEAR ARMS.

HE SAID IT ONLY APPLIES TO

MALITIAS.

IT DOESN'T APPLY TO THE

INDIVIDUAL OWNERSHIP OF

GUNS.

IF HE WENT ON THE COURT,

THERE WOULD BE A 5-4

MAJORITY CANCELLING

PEOPLE'S RIGHTS TO HAVE

GUNS.

WHY DO THEY WANT TO TAKE

THEIR GUNS AWAY?

WHO WANTS TO TAKE YOUR

GUNS AWAY?

DICTATORS.

INVARIABLY BEFORE A

DICTATOR COMES IN AND

SEIZES POWER FROM THE

PEOPLE, HE MAKES SURE THEY

ARE DISARMED.

IF YOU ARE DISARMED, YOU

CAN'T FIGHT AGAINST THE

ARMY THAT THE DICTATOR

PUTS IN PLACE.

SO THE LEFT WANTS TO

DISARM YOU.

IT IS INCREDIBLE, BUT THIS

STUFF IS GOING ON.

NOW YOU HAVE GOT THIS

VICIOUS ATTACK GOING ON

AGAINST DONALD TRUMP.

"THE BOSTON GLOBE" IS IN

THE TANK AGAINST HIM.

THE "NEW YORK TIMES" IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

THEY HAVE GIVEN UP ALL

PRETENSE OF JOURNALISTIC

BALANCE.

THE "WASHINGTON POST," WHO

I THOUGHT JEFF BEZOS PAID

$150 MILLION TO BUY IT --

I THOUGHT, HE'LL BE FAIRLY

BALANCED.

HE LIKES TO SELL BOOKS AND

TOYS AND WHATEVER ELSE HE

SELLS.

BUT IT IS THE SAME OLD

LEFT-WING CROWD OF BIGOTS

THAT RUN THE "WASHINGTON

POST." AND THEY ARE

ABSOLUTELY FRANTICALLY

AGAINST TRUMP.

WHY?

WELL, IF THIS GUY -- THIS

GUY HAS TAKEN A LOT OF

ABUSE, BUT IT IS COMING

HARD AND FAST.

I'LL TELL YOU LATER ON HOW

I THINK HE IS GOING TO

WIN, BY THE WAY.

EVERYBODY SAYS IT IS NOT

THE CASE, BUT I'VE GOT THE

PLAN.

TERRY?

Terry: AS YOU

MENTIONED A FEW MINUTES

AGO, WikiLEAKS IS STILL

RELEASING MORE E-MAILS

FROM INSIDE THE CLINTON

CAMPAIGN.

THEY SHOW SOME REVEALING

COMMENTS ABOUT CATHOLICISM

AND EVANGELICALS.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS MORE ON

THE CHAOS OF THIS ELECTION

SEASON.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP IS TAKING AIM AT

LEADERSHIP WITHIN HIS OWN

PARTY, INCLUDING HOUSE

SPEAKER PAUL RYAN WHO SAID

ON MONDAY HE WOULDN'T

CAMPAIGN WITH TRUMP

ANYMORE.

I WOULDN'T WANT TO BE A

FOX HOLE WITH A LOT OF

THESE PEOPLE, BY THE WAY,

INCLUDING RYAN.

Reporter: TRUMP THEN

DECLARED THAT, QUOTE,"THE

SHACKLES HAVE BEEN TAKEN

OFF," LIBERATING HIM TO

FIGHT FOR AMERICA THE WAY

HE WANTS TO.

THIS AFTER MANY FROM HIS

PARTY HAVE WITHDRAWN THEIR

SUPPORT IN THE WAKE OF THE

VULGAR VIDEO FROM 2005.

TRUMP CONTINUES TO BATTLE

DEMOCRATIC OPPONENT

HILLARY CLINTON.

THIS WEEK HIS CAMPAIGN

RELEASING A NEW TELEVISION

AD.

HILLARY CLINTON FAILED

EVERY SINGLE TIME AS

SECRETARY OF STATE.

Reporter: CLINTON,

MEANWHILE, DEALING WITH A

NEW WikiLEAKS RELEASE OF

OVER A THOUSAND E-MAILS

FROM HER CAMPAIGN.

SOME OF THEM SEEMING TO

SHOW A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE NEWS MEDIA,

INCLUDING A "NEW YORK

TIMES" REPORTER GIVING THE

CLINTON CAMP VETO POWER

OVER STATEMENTS SHE MADE

BEFORE INCLUDING THEM IN A

STORY.

OTHER E-MAILS SHOWS

CLINTON'S TEAM MOCKING

EVANGELICALS AND

CONSERVATIVE CATHOLICS.

WRITING, "THE MANY

POWERFUL CONSERVATIVES ARE

CATHOLIC BECAUSE THEY

THINK IT IS THE MOST

SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE,

POLITICALLY CONSERVATIVE

RELIGION."

CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN TEAM

RESPONDED TO THE LATEST

LEAKS BY SAYING THEY'RE

SIMPLY AN ATTEMPT BY

RUSSIA TO SWAY THE

ELECTION.

SO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE

IN THIS ELECTION SHOULD BE

OF UTMOST CONCERN TO ALL

AMERICANS.

Reporter: ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL, CLINTON

SHOWED UP ON STAGE WITH AL

GORE, AND TALKED ABOUT HIS

MAJOR ISSUE AND ONE THAT

IS IMPORTANT TO MANY OF

THEM, CLIMATE CHANGE.

I'M RUNNING AGAINST A

GUY WHO DENIES SCIENCE,

DENIES CLIMATE CHANGE,

SAYS IT IS A HOAX CREATED

BY THE CHINESE.

Reporter: CLINTON HAS

A LEAD IN THE POLLS AND IS

NOW LOOKING BEYOND THE

WHITE HOUSE AND TRYING TO

HELP DEMOCRATS TAKE BACK

THE SENATE AS WELL.

BUT TRUMP IS NOT BACKING

DOWN, AND IS SURE TO HIT

CLINTON HARD AS THIS RACE

ENTERS ITS FINAL STAGE.

> CAITLIN BURKE, CBN

NEWS.

Pat: IF THE

REPUBLICANS WOULD STOP

WRINGING THEIR HANDS AND

TALKING ABOUT SOME

11-YEAR-OLD LOCKER ROOM

DISCUSSION -- THEY HAVE AN

ISSUE IN THE AFFORDABLE

CARE ACT.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES WENT BEFORE

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND HE

SAID, IF YOU LIKE YOUR

PLAN, YOU CAN KEEP IT.

IT WAS A LIE.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR,

YOU CAN KEEP IT.

THAT WAS A LIE.

IF YOU THINK YOU'RE PAYING

TOO MUCH NOW, WE'RE GOING

TO LOWER THE COSTS.

THAT WAS A LIE.

FLAT OUT LIE BY THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

AND HE SOLD THAT THING,

AND NOW THE COST OF THE

AFFORDABLE CARE FOR PEOPLE

HAS GONE UP 30%, 40%, 50%,

60% IN SOME CASES.

AND MANY, MANY OF THE

EXCHANGES ARE GOING BROKE

BECAUSE THE PLAN DOESN'T

WORK.

IT IS FORCING THE PLAN TO

PAY FOR OLDER PEOPLE, BUT

DOES NOT INCLUDE THE

YOUNGER ONES BECAUSE IT IS

NOT A GOOD DEAL FOR THE

YOUNGER PARTICIPANTS.

THE THING IS A DISASTER.

IT IS GOING TO COLLAPSE

PROBABLY IN THE NEXT YEAR.

WHY THE REPUBLICANS --

THERE WASN'T ONE

REPUBLICAN WHO VOTED FOR

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.

NOT ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN.

IT WAS STRICTLY A

DEMOCRATIC DEAL IN THE

HOUSE AND THE SENATE.

IF THEY WANT TO RUN ON AN

ISSUE THAT WILL BE HOT

BUTTON IN THE NEXT FEW

WEEKS, THAT'S IT, INSTEAD

OF TALKING ABOUT SOME

11-YEAR-OLD E-MAIL WITH

LOCKER BANTER BETWEEN A

COUPLE OF GUYS.

I MEAN, THIS IS CRAZY.

BUT THAT'S WHAT'S BEING

ELEVATED.

I'LL TELL YOU,

WikiLEAKS -- IT'S

COMING, MORE AND MORE AND

MORE, BUT IT SHOWS THAT

ELITE MENTALITY, BACK TO

THE "WASHINGTON POST,"

"POOR, UNEDUCATED, AND

EASY TO COMMAND."

BY THE WAY, TO THE

"WASHINGTON POST," IN CASE

YOU THINK I'M UNEDUCATED,

I'VE GOT 10 COLLEGE

DEGREES, INCLUDING A

DOCTORATE FROM YALE.

SO I REALLY DO KNOW WHAT

I'M TALKING ABOUT.

> IN OTHER NEWS, ONE OF

THE GROWING THREATS THE

UNITED STATES WILL FACE IN

THE YEARS AHEAD IS RUSSIA.

RUSSIA IS NOW EXPANDING

ITS INFLUENCE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

THEY WERE THROWN OUT OF

EGYPT A LONG TIME AGO.

WE HAD CONTROL OF THE

MIDDLE EAST.

AND THEN THROUGH THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, WE JUST

SURRENDERED IT.

AND THEY'RE NOW BUILDING A

NAVAL BASE IN SYRIA.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Efrem: PAT, IT IS

JUST ONE OF THE LATEST

MOVES BY RUSSIA AS SOME

MILITARY ANALYSTS BELIEVE

IT IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF

THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION TO STRENGTHEN ITS

POSITION IN SYRIA.

CHRIS MITCHELL SHOWS US

HOW THIS SITUATION ALSO

THREATENS THE RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN RUSSIA AND THE

U.S.

Chris: GLOBAL FOREIGN

POLICY EXPERTS BELIEVE

PERCEIVED WEAKNESS AND

INACTION IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, COMBINED WITH A

LAME-DUCK PRESIDENCY,

OPENED THE DOOR FOR RUSSIA

TO GAIN A POWERFUL FOOT

HOLD.

THEY'RE GOING FOR A

VICTORY, AND THEY'RE

TRYING TO BOMB EASTERN

ALEPPO INTO SURRENDER.

THE RUSSIANS FIGURE IT IS

A GOOD TIME TO ACHIEVE AS

MUCH AS POSSIBLE IN THE

LAST DYING MONTHS OF THE

OBAMA PRESIDENCY, WHERE

THERE WILL ALMOST

CERTAINLY BE VERY LITTLE

PUSHBACK FROM THE

AMERICANS.

Chris: ALEPPO FACES

CONSTANT ATTACKS FROM

SYRIA AND THE RUSSIAN

TROOPS.

THE RUSSIANS HAVE

NOTICED THERE WAS A VACUUM

IN THE MIDDLE EAST, AND

THEY'RE DOING THEIR LEVEL

BEST TO FULFILL THAT

VACUUM, AND BY SO DOING,

ADVANCE RUSSIA'S STRATEGIC

INTERESTS.

Chris: BOMBING

CIVILIAN SITES, INCLUDING

HOSPITALS, HAS FORCED THE

U.S. TO CUT OFF TIES.

RUSSIA AND THE ASSYRIAN

REGIME HAS PURSUED A

MILITARY FORCE.

Chris: THAT PUT IT AD

ODDS WITH THATODDS WITH THE U.S. AND

FOREIGN MINISTERS.

BY CONTRAST, THE

AMERICAN AGENDA IN BOTH

SYRIA AND IRAQ HAS BEEN

EXTREMELY CONFUSED FROM

THE OUTSIDE.

Chris: THIS SITUATION

GOT WORSE WHEN RUSSIA

ADMITTED DEPLOYING A

MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM IN

SYRIA.

IT IS NOT QUITE CLEAR

WHY THE DEPLOYMENT OF THE

S-300 HAS WORRIED OUR

WESTERN COLLEAGUES.

Chris: JONATHAN SPIRE

SAYS THIS ACTION WAS

CLEARLY INTENDED TO DETER

THE U.S. BECAUSE REBEL

GROUPS HAVE NO MANNERS.

PLANES.

WHAT YOU'RE SAYING TO

THE U.S. AND EVERYBODY

ELSE, IF YOU'RE THINKING

OF PUTTING PLANES UP AND

ACTING AGAINST OUR ALLIES

AND THE REGIME FORCES,

WE'RE READY FOR THAT AND

THAT IS GOING TO HAVE

CONSEQUENCES, POTENTIALLY.

Chris: FOR ISRAEL,

WHICH SHARES A BORDER WITH

SYRIA, IT IS A BIG

CONCERN.

THE S-300 MAKES THEIR WAY

ACROSS SYRIA TO HEZBOLLAH

IN LEBANON.

IN THE MEANTIME, WHAT IS

GOOD FOR THE RUSSIANS

HASN'T BEEN GOOD FOR THE

SYRIAN CIVILIANS.

BECAUSE WE'RE SYRIAN,

WE CAN'T BEAR ANYMORE.

THE CHILDREN ARE KILLED IN

FRONT OF US.

UNITED NATIONS IS USELESS.

THEY ARE KILLERS.

THEY ARE MURDERERS.

Chris: SPIRE SAYS

SINCE THE COLD WAR, THE

U.S. WAS LIKE THE SHERIFF

IN THE REGION, MAINTAINING

A DEGREE OF ORDER.

NOW THAT THAT IS GONE,

THERE IS A DIFFERENT

REALITY.

WHEN THE AMERICANS DID

NOT PURSUE THEIR STATED

INTERESTS IN SYRIA, THEN

YOU HAVE THE SITUATION OF

A VERY RUTHLESS POWER,

RUSSIA, COMING IN, BEFORE

THE EYES OF THE WORLD.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: ANOTHER TENSE

SITUATION.

PAT?

Pat: IT IS EXTREMELY

TENSE.

BUT WE'VE INVITED THEM IN.

THEY HAD NO ROLE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST WHATSOEVER.

THEY WERE THROWN OUT BY

THE EYPTIANS.

IT WAS A CLEAR SHOT FOR

AMERICANS TO TAKE OVER,

BUT OBAMA DID NOT MOVE.

THERE WERE SOME REBEL

GROUPS, AND THEY WEREN'T

SURE WHICH ONES TO DEFEND,

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THE

ALAWITES IN SYRIA

REPRESENT ABOUT 10% TO 15%

OF THE TOTAL POPULATION

AND THAT'S IT.

THEY WERE THE SAME BAFF

PARTY.

AND THE ASSAD FATHER AND

SON WERE PART OF THAT

ALAWITE GROUP.

SYRIA IS PRIMARILY SUNNI

MUSLIM, AND HERE THIS

MINORITY IS RUNNING THEM.

WE SAID -- AT LEAST OUR

PRESIDENT SAID VERY

BOLDLY, I'M DRAWING A LINE

IN THE SAND.

IF HE USES CHEMICAL

WEAPONS OF MASS

DESTRUCTION, WE MUST ACT.

AND THEY HAD INDISPUTABLE

EVIDENCE THAT ASSAD WAS

USING CHEMICAL WEAPONS,

MUSTARD GAS AT A MINIMUM,

AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, AND WE

DID NOTHING.

AND WE CONTINUE TO DO

NOTHING.

AND AS A RESULT, THERE IS

A VACUUM.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE

SCIENTISTS TELL YOU NATURE

ABHORS A VACUUM.

THERE WAS A VACUUM CREATED

BY THE UNITED STATES, AND

THE RUSSIANS MOVED INTO

IT.

PUTIN IS AN OPPORTUNIST.

FOR HILLARY CLINTON WHO

ONCE TALKED ABOUT JENNIFER

FLOWERS BEING THE FRUIT OF

A VAST RIGHT-WING

CONSPIRACY, AND NOW THE

WikiLEAKS ARE THE RESULT

OF A VAST RUSSIAN

CONSPIRACY TO WIN THE

ELECTION AND TAKE IT AWAY

FROM HER.

NOW IT IS A VAST LEFT-WING

CONSPIRACY -- WHAT IT IS,

THEY ARE CONSPIRACIES

AGAINST THE CLINTONS.

Efrem: 9,000 PEOPLE

ARE BEING EVACUATED IN

GREENEVILLE, NORTH

CAROLINA TODAY, AS THE

FLOOD THREAT CONTINUES TO

UNFOLD.

GOVERNOR PAT McCRORY IS

URGING RESIDENTS TO LEAVE

IN ORDER TO PREVENT MORE

DEATHS.

THE STORM HAS CLAIMED AT

LEAST 34 LIVES IN THE

U.S., WITH MORE THAN HALF

OF THEM IN NORTH CAROLINA.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HARD AT WORK HELPING

RESIDENTS WHO HAVE LOST

NEARLY EVERYTHING.

I KNEW BY THEN THAT THE

WATER HAD RISEN UP TO,

LIKE, THE SECOND STEP, I

BELIEVE, AT LEAST.

AND I TRIED TO GET HOME

EVERY WAY THAT WENT.

I POSTED THE LITTLE FUNNY

THING ON Facebook, LET'S

SEE HOW MANY DETOURS I

HAVE ON MY WAY HOME.

I TRIED TO KEEP TRACK OF

DETOURS AND LIGHTS THAT

WERE OUT.

AND THEN IT WAS A MATTER

OF, I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO

GET THERE.

FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING" TO BE HERE --

YOU SAY THE WORD

"BLESSING," BUT THAT

DOESN'T REALLY TOUCH WHAT

IT IS.

Efrem: HURRICANE

MATTHEW HAS DAMAGED OR

DESTROYED MORE THAN A

MILLION BUILDINGS, FORCED

BUSINESSES FROM FLORIDA TO

NORTH CAROLINA TO CLOSE,

AND PUT THOUSANDS OUT OF

WORK TEMPORARILY.

GOLDMAN SACHS ESTIMATES

THAT THE STORM CAUSED OVER

$10 MILLION IN DAMAGE OVER

ALL.

Pat: OUR DEAR FRIENDS

IN NORTH CAROLINA ARE

FLOODING.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THE TAR

RIVER AND OTHER RIVERS

HAVE OVERFLOWED THE WAY

THEY HAVE.

THE FLOODING CONTINUES.

THE SAME THING IN OUR PART

OF VIRGINIA.

THERE IS TERRIBLE

FLOODING, AND IT GOES ON

AND ON AND ON.

AND CLOSING OF SCHOOLS AND

ROADS BEING CLOSED.

THE WATERS WERE JUST SO

PUPERVASIVE.

40 INCHES, 50 INCHES --

WHATEVER IT WAS -- THAT

FELL DURING THIS PERIOD OF

TIME.

THE STORM SYSTEMS WEREN'T

SET UP TO HANDLE THAT.

AND I GUESS THE SAME THING

IN NORTH CAROLINA.

BUT THEY ARE REALLY

SUFFERING.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

DOWN THERE WORKING,

BRINGING HOT MEALS,

BRINGING OTHER TYPES OF

MATERIAL THEY NEED TO HELP

REBUILD THEIR HOMES.

IT IS STILL TOO EARLY FOR

PEOPLE WHO WERE FLOODED

OUT TO DO ANYTHING, EXCEPT

JUST SURVIVE, AND WE ARE

THERE TO HELP THEM.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP

"OPERATION BLESSING," THE

NUMBER IS EASY TO

REMEMBER: 1-800-700-7000.

THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED TO

DO.

NOW IS THE TIME TO HELP.

EFREM, WHAT IS NEXT?

Efrem: PAT, SOME

PEOPLE ARE CALLING IT A

MIRACLE MOMENT, AFTER TIM

TEBOW PRAYED FOR A SICK

FAN AT A BASEBALL GAME AND

HE RECOVERED.

HE WAS SIGNING OUGHT

GARAGES AFTER HIS FIRST

MINOR LEAGUE GAME, WHEN A

FAN SUDDENLY HIT THE

GROUND AND STARTED

CONVULSING.

HE SPRANG INTO ACTION AND

LAID HIS HANDS ON THE MAN,

PRAYED FOR HIS HEALING,

AND COMFORTED HIM UNTIL

PARAMEDICS ARRIVED.

THE VIOLENT SEIZING

REPORTEDLY STOPPED RIGHT

AFTER HE LAID HANDS ON

HIM.

WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR

PEOPLE AND LOVING

PEOPLE -- BASEBALL IS

AWESOME, IT IS SOMETHING

I'M SO EXCITED I GET A

CHANCE TO PURSUE.

BUT WHAT'S IMPORTANT IS

LIVES MATTER.

PEOPLE MATTER.

AND THIS YOUNG MAN, HE

MATTERED.

Efrem: THAT

30-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS TAKEN

TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND

LATER RELEASED FROM THE

HOSPITAL AND IS AT HOME,

WHERE HE SAYS HE IS DOING

FINE.

GOT TO LOVE TIM TEBOW.

PAT?

Pat: IS HE GOING TO

BE UP FOR CANONIZATION?

SAINT TIM?

I CAN SEE IT COMING.

Terry: I THINK A LOT

OF PEOPLE WOULD VOTE WITH

YOU ON THAT ONE.

Pat: HIS FIRST AT-BAT

AND HE HIT IT OUT OF THE

PARK.

> YOU DON'T MIND IF I DO

A LITTLE BRAGGING, DO YOU?

Terry: NO, I DON'T.

PLEASE DO.

Pat: I HAVE

GRANDCHILDREN AND

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.

AND I JUST GO GO GOT A PICTURE

OF ONE OF THEM.

THE PRETTIEST LITTLE

CHILD.

THIS IS LITTLE ANNABELLE.

ISN'T SHE PRETTY?

Terry: SHE IS

BEAUTIFUL.

IS SHE THE ONE WHO HAD

FROSTING ALL OVER YOUR

FACE AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY

CAKE?

Pat: IT'S VERY

POSSIBLE.

Terry: THAT'S GREAT.

SHE'S ADORABLE.

Pat: AND WE'VE GOT A

SET OF TWINS COMING SOON.

SO I'LL HAVE 10

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND

BEFORE LONG I'LL HAVE

GREAT,

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.

Terry: YOU HAVE

PEEKED MY INTEREST AND

WHETTED MY APPETITE.

YOU SAID YOU STILL BELIEVE

IN THE END DONALD TRUMP

WILL WIN.

Pat: I DO.

Terry: BASED ON WHAT?

Pat: BLACK PEOPLE

VOTED OVERWHELMING FOR

BARACK OBAMA.

Terry: YES.

Pat: THEY DON'T HAVE

A THING FOR HILLARY.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO COME

OUT LIKE THEY DID FOR

BARACK OBAMA.

SHE IS JUST NOT GOING TO

MOBILIZE THEM BECAUSE THEY

HAVEN'T GOT ALL THAT GOOD

A DEAL.

TRUMP IS SAYING TO THEM,

IF YOU THINK YOU'VE GOT IT

SO GOOD, GO AHEAD AND VOTE

FOR HER.

THE INNER CITIES ARE STILL

IN CHAOS --

Terry: WORSE THAN

EVER.

Pat: AND THEY SAY

THEIR LIVES ARE IMPROVED.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE

SURPRISINGLY VOTING FOR

TRUMP AND IT IS GOING TO

SURPRISE EVERYBODY.

AND SECOND, MILLENNIALS.

WHERE ARE THEY GOING?

THEY'RE GOING TO SAY,

WE'RE GOING THIRD PARTY OR

WE'RE GOING TO SIT AT

HOME.

THEY DON'T LIKE TRUMP,

THEY DON'T LIKE HILLARY.

THEY'RE GOING TO STAY

AWAY.

SO I THINK THERE IS GOING

TO BE A HUGE DEFECTION IN

THAT GROUP.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE

VOTING.

SO THAT IS GOING TO TAKE

AWAY SOME OF THE PEOPLE.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TURN

OUT AT THE BALLOT BOXES.

> THE NEXT IS THE LABOR

UNIONS.

THIS HAS BEEN THE

HARD-CORE OF THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

BUT OBAMA HAS STIFFED THE

LABOR UNIONS IN THE

KEYSTONE X.L. PIPELINE

CASE.

THE STEEL WORKERS SAY

THERE ARE NO JOBS FOR US.

AND OBAMA SAID, WE DON'T

CARE ABOUT THE JOBS.

WE WANT TO PLACATE RICH

ENVIRONMENTALISTS,

REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU

WANT.

AND YOU ADD TO THAT, THE

COAL MINERS IN OHIO AND

PENNSYLVANIA AND WEST

VIRGINIA, WHERE OBAMA HAS

HAD A WAR AGAINST COAL.

AND YOU'VE GOT ALL THOSE

GROUPS THAT WERE THE

PILLARS OF THE DEMOCRATIC

COALITION.

A LOT OF THEM ARE GOING TO

BE WEAKER, AND IT IS GOING

TO SURPRISE EVERYBODY.

ALTAT

AT THE SAME TIME, TRUMP IS

REACHING OUT TO THE

LABORING PEOPLE AND TO THE

BLACK PEOPLE.

HE IS NOT REACHING OUT SO

MUCH TO THE YOUNG, BUT

MAYBE HE IS SOUNDING OUT

TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE.

AND THE FACT THAT HE IS

ATTACKING THE LEADERSHIP

OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AT

THIS POINT IS GOING TO SAY

TO PEOPLE, HEY, HE'S AN

INDEPENDENT.

HE IS STANDING TRUE, AND

WE'RE GOING TO GO FOR HIM.

SO HE IS GOING TO PICK UP

A WHOLE LOT OF

INDEPENDENTS.

WHEN THE DAY COMES, MARK

MY WORD, IT IS GOING TO

SURPRISE EVERYBODY.

I'M SO SICK OF SEEING FOX

WITH ALL THEIR POLLS AND

ALL THEIR GRAPHS, AND ALL

OF THEIR THINGS SHOWING

THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, AND

THE VOTES OF FLORIDA WENT

INTO HILLARY'S COLUMN.

WAIT A MINUTE AND WATCH

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

AND HE WILL WIN THE

ELECTION.

Terry: WELL, MAYBE

THIS TIME THE PEOPLE WILL

BE HEARD.

IT IS VERY -- HOW DO YOU

TRUST POLLS ANYMORE.

EVERYBODY IS SO SKEWED

BEHIND THE SCENES, YOU

DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO

THINK.

Pat: IT IS A TINY,

TINY FRACTION.

BUT THESE WikiLEAKS

THINGS ARE CORROSIVE TO

HILLARY'S CAMPAIGN BECAUSE

IT IS SHOWING UTTER

DISREGARD FOR THE COMMON

PEOPLE.

SHE IS VERY RICH.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND HAVE

MADE $200 MILLION PERSONAL

FORTUNATE.

THEY HAVE ABOUT $2 BILLION

IN THAT CAMPAIGN.

THEY HAVE ALIGNED

THEMSELVES WITH DICTATORS

ALL OVER THE WORLD WITH

THAT CLINTON FOUNDATION.

THEY HAVE GOTTEN ENORMOUS

AMOUNTS OF MONEY.

AND IT HAS BEEN PAY FOR

PLAY, THERE IS NO DOUBT

ABOUT IT.

SOONER ARE LATER THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE GOING

TO WAKE UP.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

YOU HEARD IT HERE.

AND IF I'M WRONG, I WILL

NOT SHOW UP FOR A DAY.

Terry: AND WE'LL HOLD

HIS FEET TO THE FIRE --

Pat: I'LL PUT ON SACK

CLOTH AND ASHES AND

APOLOGIZE.

> WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU

GOT?

Terry: OH, MY.

OKAY.

> WELL, UP NEXT, HELP

FOR TEENS IN TROUBLE.

I THINK OF AMAZING

GRACE.

IT HAS GIVEN ME A

SECOND CHANCE.

I LIKE IT BECAUSE I GET

TO RESTART MY LIFE.

Terry: SO JUST WHAT

IS "HEART LIFE?"

FIND OUT COMING UP.

*

Pat: WELL, THERE ARE

HUGE NUMBERS OF SO-CALLED

MILLENNIALS.

THE YOUNG PEOPLE COMING UP

TODAY, THEY FACE A HOST OF

PROBLEMS, FROM DEPRESSION

TO DRUGS TO QUESTIONS

ABOUT SEXUAL IDENTITY.

SO IT IS MORE IMPORTANT

THAN EVER THAT THEY FIND

THE RIGHT KIND OF HELP.

CHARLENE AARON REPORTS ON

ONE MINISTRY IN TEXAS

WHERE TROUBLED TEENS HAVE

RECEIVED HELP FOR MORE

THAN 30 YEARS.

Charlene: SITTING ON

150 ACRES, "HEART LIGHT"

MINISTRIES REACHES OUT TO

TEENAGERS STRUGGLING WITH

THE PRESSURES OF LIFE.

WHEN I THINK ABOUT

"HEART LIGHT" I THINK

ABOUT AMAZING GRACE.

I LIKE "HEART LIGHT,"

BECAUSE I GET TO RESTART

MY LIFE.

Charlene: THE

MINISTRY BEGAN IN 1988 AS

A DREAM OF MARK AND JAN

GREGSTAN.

I STARTED LEADING A

YOUNG LIFE GROUP, AND A

YOUNG MAN COMES UP TO ME

AND SAYS HE IS STRUGGLING.

Charlene: THAT'S ALL

MARK MEDED AS HIS PASSION NEEDED AS HIS PA SSION

HAS ALWAYS BEEN HELPING

KIDS.

WE SAID, LET'S START

TAKING CARE OF KIDS, AND

THAT'S WHAT WE'VE DONE.

Charlene: "HEART

LIGHT" PROVIDES COS

COUNSELLING AND THERAPY

FOR THOSE OVERCOME ABUSE,

SEXUAL ADDICTION, IDENTITY

ISSUES AND A LOT MORE.

I WAS IN A SPOT WHERE I

DIDN'T THINK I REALLY

WANTED TO BE ALIVE

ANYMORE.

A WEEK BEFORE I CAME HERE,

I TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE.

I JUST HAD A LOT OF

PROBLEMS, LIKE MY PARENTS

PASSING AWAY, AND DRUG AND

ALCOHOL ABUSE AND SEX AND

STUFF LIKE THAT.

Charlene: THE

CHRISTIAN CAMP IS

RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S FINEST

RESIDENTIAL COUNSELLING

CENTERS, BUT AS GREGSTAN

IS QUICK TO POINT OUT,

RELIGION IS NOS FORCED NOT FORCED

HERE.

THE THEY FEEL LIKE GOD HAS

ABANDONED THEM BECAUSE

THEY HAVE GROWN UP IN

CHRISTIAN HOMES, AND WHEN

SOMETHING GOES WRONG, THEY

THINK GOD DIDN'T TAKE CARE

OF ME.

AND WE FIND TO GIVE THEM A

TASTE OF GOD, IT IS TWO DO

IT THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS.

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN

WORDS.

Charlene: AND THE

MINISTRY ALSO HOLDS A

RESTREET FORETREAT FOR PARENTS.

Charlene: GREGSTAN IS

NOW EXPANDING THEIR

POSITIVE CHANGE WITH A

NATIONAL RADIO PROGRAM FOR

PARENTS.

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE

WE HAVE IS THE PARENTS.

I LOOK AT PARENTS ALL OF

THE TIME.

AND I GO, REALLY THE

PROBLEM ISN'T YOUR KIDS;

IT'S YOU.

IT IS TEACHING THEM WOULD

YOABOUTTHE CULTURE, SHOWING THEM

IT HAS CHANGED COMPLETELY,

THE WAY PEOPLE ENGAGE.

IT SHOWS THEM THAT SOME

ANANTIQUATED WAYS OF

PARENTING DOESN'T WORK.

WHEN YOU'RE JUDGEMENTAL,

IT DOESN'T WORK.

KIDS SHUT DOWN.

Charlene: THEY GIVE

PARENTS AND KIDS TOOLS TO

REBUILD THEIR FAMILIES.

IT HAS HELPED ME A LOT

TO GET THROUGH MY GRIEF

AND FEEL MY EMOTIONS AND

LEARN HOW TO BE MYSELF.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO DO

THAT BEFORE.

IT IS GOOD BECAUSE YOU

HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE

SUPPORTING YOU HERE, AND

HELPING YOU LIO, LIKE, THROUGH

YOUR CHANGES.

IT IS ISOLATED SO YOU CAN

WORK ON THE PROBLEMS YOU

NEED TO WORK ON.

SO I'M DOING GOOD.

Charlene: THAT'S THE

GOAL GREGSTAN SET OUT TO

ACCOMPLISH ALL THOSE YEARS

AGO.

I WANT THEM TO BE SO

LOVED WHILE THEY ARE HERE,

THAT WHEN THEY LEAVE, THEY

COMPARE IT TO THE QUALITY

OF LOVE THEY'VE

EXPERIENCED HERE.

AND THEY GO, YOU KNOW

WHAT?

LIFE MAY BE TOUGH, BUT I

WAS LOVED WHEN I WAS AT

"HEART LIGHT."

Charlene: A SENTIMENT

ECHOED FROM ONE SAVED LIFE

AFTER ANOTHER.

IT IS EASIER HERE TO

LOOK AT MYSELF AND BE,

LIKE, I LIKE MYSELF NOW.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS,

HALLSVILLE, TEXAS.

Pat: THAT'S THE MOST

BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS I'VE EVER

SEEN.

Terry: WHAT A

SPIRITUAL PLACE.

GREAT WORK.

Pat: BUT THEY'VE GOT

IT RIGHT.

THE PARENTS ARE THE

PROBLEM.

YOU DON'T GET A HANDBOOK

THAT YOU GET WITH A CHILD.

AND YOU CAN MESS YOUR

CHILD UP.

Terry: AND THE WORLD

HAS CHANGED SO FAST, THAT

CHANGING WITH IT IS A BIT

OF A CHALLENGE.

Pat: I DON'T ENVY THE

KIDS COMING UP TODAY --

Terry: OH, ME

NEITHER.

Pat: IT WAS A

DIFFERENT ERA WHEN I WAS

GROWING UP.

IT WAS WORLD WAR II GOING

IN, AND POST-WORLD WAR II.

BUT THINGS NOW ARE JUST

CRAZY.

Terry: COMING UP, NFL

WIDE RECEIVER CHARLES

JOHNSON, WATCH HOW HE OVER

CAME THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE

TO HIS CAREER, HIMSELF.

AND HEAR ABOUT THE WAKEUP

CALL THAT COULD HAVE BEEN

THE END OF HIM.

Terry: WITH A 5 AND 0

RECORD, THE MINNESOTA

VIKINGS ARE CURRENTLY THE

ONLY UNDEFEATED TEAM IN

THE NFL.

AND CHARLES JOHNSON IS

PART OF THE SUCCESS.

JOHNSON IS LIVING HIS

DREAM, BUT AS HE TOLD SEAN

BROWN, IT IS A DREAM THAT

WAS ALMOST DERAILED BY

JOHNSON HIMSELF.

*

Announcer: NFL WIDE

RECEIVER CHARLES JOHNSON

IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE

DEADLIEST WEAPONS IN THE

MINNESOTA VIKINGS ARISOL.

IN HIS FIRST SEASON WITH

THE TEAM, HE HAD 31

RECEPTIONS IN JUST 11

GAMES.

C.J. WAS LIVING HIS DREAM.

BUT BEFORE MAKING IT TO

THE NFL, CHARLES HAD TO

OVERCOME HIS BIGGEST

OBSTACLE, HIMSELF.

IT WAS A JOURNEY THAT

BEGAN WHEN HE WAS A

STUDENT ATHLETE AT EASTERN

KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY.

YOU KNOW, I WAS A TRUE

FRESHMAN.

I WAS VERY IMMATURE.

I STARTED JUST HANGING OUT

WITH FRIENDS, WANTING TO

BE COOL.

I THOUGHT IT WAS BIG

TIME -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT

I THOUGHT.

Reporter: CHARLES

GREW UP IN NORTHERN

KENTUCKY.

HE ACCEPTED CHRIST IN HIGH

SCHOOL.

BUT WHEN HE WENT OFF TO

COLLEGE, HE SAID HIS

SHOVED HIS FAITH IN THE

BACK SEAT.

I STARTED SLIPPING AWAY

A LITTLE MORE BECAUSE I

WAS AT SCHOOL AND I WASN'T

AROUND IT ANYMORE.

Reporter: AS A

RESULT, CHARLES LOST FOCUS

ON HIS PRIORITIES.

HE STARTED GETTING INTO

TROUBLE WITH THE SCHOOL

OFFICIALS.

WE WOULD JUST GET IN

TROUBLE FOR THE DUMBEST

THINGS.

WE GOT IN TROUBLE FOR

TAKING A COUCH OUT OF THE

LOBBY AND PUTTING IT IN

OUR ROOM.

Reporter: HE WAS

EVENTUALLY SUSPENDED FROM

THE UNIVERSITY FOR TWO

YEARS AND HAD TO RETURN

HOME.

AND ON THE DRIVE BACK, HE

GOT THE WAKEUP CALL OF HIS

LIFE.

IT WAS POURING RAIN.

AND I'M GOING ABOUT 80 IN

THE FAST LANE.

SO ONCE I TAPPED THE

BRAKE, I STARTED TO HYDRO

PLANE AND MY TAIL STARTED

TO SPIN OUT.

I SMASHED INTO THE MEDIA.

AND WHEN I LOOKED BACK, IT

WAS ZOOM, ZOOM, AND IT

SPIN RIGHT BY ME.

I DROVE OFF TO THE SIDE

AND I WAS CRYING AND

STUFF.

Reporter: SO WHAT

CHANGED IN YOUR HEART?

THAT COULD HAVE BEEN

THE END OF ME.

THAT COULD HAVE BEEN THE

END OF CHARLES JOHNSON.

I NEEDED TO FIGURE OUT

WHAT I WANTED TO DO.

Reporter: IT WAS TOO

LATE FOR HIM TO BE ADDED

TO ANOTHER SCHOOL'S

ROSTER.

HIS ONLY OPTION WAS TO

PLAY AT A COMMUNITY

COLLEGE IN CALIFORNIA.

TRYING TO MAKE IT TO THE

NFL FROM A JUNIOR COLLEGE

CAN BE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE.

I'M GOING TO SCHOOL,

PLAYING BALL, EATING

RAHMAN NOODLES EVERY DAY.

Reporter: HIS

GIRLFRIEND, CAITLIN HAD

BECOME PREGNANT.

AND HE RECEIVED NEWS THAT

HIS FATHER WAS ILL.

AND HE HAD NO IDEA HOW HE

WAS GOING TO PROVIDE FOR A

CHILD OR HELP HIS FATHER.

SO HE WENT TO GOD IN

PRAYER.

I PRAYED, LET ME FIND A

WAY.

YOU JUST GIVE ME THE

CALLING AND I'LL ANSWER.

Reporter: CHARLES

REDEDICATED HIS LIFE TO

THE LORD.

THE LORD GAVE YOU A CALL?

YEAH.

HE WAS, LIKE, MAN,

FOOTBALL IS FOR YOU.

I TOOK CLASSES AT A LOCAL

COMMUNITY COLLEGE JUST TO

FINISH UP MY DEGREE.

I WAS WORKING AT ARBY'S

AND I KNEW I WANTED TO GO

BACK.

Reporter: HE EARNED A

SPOT IN A DIVISION 2

SCHOOL IN MICHIGAN, AND HE

KNOWS IT IS ALL BECAUSE OF

THE LORD.

ALL OF THE STRUGGLE I

HAD WENT THROUGH TO THAT

POINT, I MEAN, HE

CONTINUED TO GIVE ME THE

STRENGTH TO ENDURE AND

KEEP MOVING FORWARD.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE

SCRIPTURES IS PHILIPPINES

2: 13.

I LIVE BY IT BECAUSE I

KNOW HE GIVES ME THAT

STRENGTH.

Reporter: THOUGH HE

WASN'T INVITED TO THE NFL

COMBINE, HE IMPRESSED

SCOUTS AND WAS SELECTED IN

THE 2013 NFL DRAFT BY THE

GREENBAY PACKERS.

HE MADE HIS WAY TO

MINNESOTA BY WAY OF

CLEVELAND IN SEPTEMBER OF

2014.

P IAND IT DIDN'T TAKE HIM

LONG TO EARN THE STARTING

SPOT.

I STARTED SLOWLY.

I WOULD GET IN FIVE PLAYS

A GAME.

10 PLAYS A GAME.

AND THEN, BOOM, I'M

STARTING.

Reporter: TODAY,

CHARLES AND CAITLIN ARE

MARRIED WITH TWO CHILDREN.

AND HIS FATHER'S HELP HAS

IMPROVED.

HE SAYS IF THERE IS ONE

THING HE HAS LEARNED

DURING THIS JOURNEY, IT IS

THAT ALL THINGS WORK

TOGETHER FOR GOOD WHEN YOU

LOVE GOD AND FOLLOW HIS

CALL.

IF YOU'RE GOING THROUGH

SOMETHING AND NOBODY ELSE

IS GOING TO BE THERE, HE

IS GOING TO BE THERE.

I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT.

HE MAY NOT RESPOND THE WAY

YOU WANT TO SOMETIMES, BUT

HE IS LISTENING.

IT HAS BEEN A LONG JOURNEY

AND HE HAS BLESSED ME.

Terry: MANY OF YOU,

IF YOU WATCH CHARLES

STORY, MANY OF YOU HAVE

WALKED AWAY FROM THINGS.

BUT IT IS NEVER TOO LATE.

GOD WAITS PATIENTLY

BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU SO

DEEPLY.

IF THAT'S BEEN YOUR

JOURNEY, AND YOU WANT TO

PRAY WITH SOMEONE AND GET

A START-OVER, LIKE CHARLES

GOT, JUST CALL OUR

TOLL-FREE NUMBER:

1-800-700-7000.

THE FRIEND ON THE OTHER

END OF THE PHONE HAS

PRAYED THAT PRAYER AND

WOULD LIKE TO WALK THAT

JOURNEY WITH YOU TODAY.

SO CALL TODAY.

PAT?

Pat: CHARLES WAS

DISCIPLINED AND HE NEVER

GAVE UP THAT DREAM.

HE HELD ON TO IT.

PEOPLE NEED TO BE FOCUSED.

WHAT HAS GOD CALLED YOU TO

DO, AND FOCUS IN ON IT.

WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU

EXCEL AT?

THE ONE THING HE EXCELLED

AT WAS PLAYING FOOTBALL.

AND HE CAME OUT OF THE

UNKNOWN JUNIOR COLLEGES.

Terry: IT IS NEVER

TOO LATE TO START OVER.

Pat: STILL AHEAD, A

YOUNG WOMAN TAKES A

CRIPPLING FALL AMERICAN

STOCFALL, ANDDOCTORS TELL HER BOYFRIEND

TRAGIC NEWS.

SHE'LL BE PARALYZED

FROM THE CHEST DOWN AND

NEVER WALK AGAIN.

HEARING THOSE WORDS FROM A

DOCTOR HITS YOU LIKE A

LOAD OF BRICKS.

Pat: WATCH HOW THIS

WOMAN MAKES A MIRACULOUS

RECOVERY, AS WE CONTINUE

"THE 700 CLUB."

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN

GROUP HAS FILED A FEDERAL

LAWSUIT CHALLENGING A NEW

MASSACHUSETTS LAW THAT

WOULD ALLOW TRANSGENDER

PEOPLE TO USE THE BATHROOM

OF THEIR CHOICE.

THE ALLIANCE DEFENDING

FREEDOM FILED THE LAWSUIT

ON FOUR CHURCHES, TO

PROTECT THEIR RIGHT TO ACT

ACCORDING TO THE BELIEF

THAT GOD CREATED MALE AND

FEMALE AT BIRTH.

AND 34,000 PEOPLE SIGNED A

PETITION TO REPEAL THE

LAW.

SO IT WILL BE ON THE 2018

BALLOT FOR VOTING.

ANDREW BECKMAN SAYS, "WE

MAIN COMMITTED TO

DEFENDING THE FUNDAMENTAL

RIGHTS TO PRIVACY AND

SAFETY, PARTICULARLY WOMEN

AND CHILDREN IN OUR

COMMONWEALTH."

> THERE IS A GROWING

LINK BETWEEN CRIMINALS AND

TERRORISM IN BRITAIN.

A NEW BRITISH REPORT SAYS

AN INCREASING NUMBER OF

CRIMINALS ARE JOINING ISIS

AND CREATING,

QUOTE,"GANGSTER JI JIHAD."

THE CENTER'S DIRECTOR SAYS

FORMER CRIMINALS ARE A

PERFECT FIT FOR

RECRUITMENT FOR ISIS.

ISIS OFFERS CRIMINALS A

CHANCE AT REDEMPTION

WITHOUT HAVING TO CHANGE

THEIR BEHAVIOR.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU

WITH US TODAY.

GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING.

GOOD THINGS ARE GOING TO

HAPPEN FOR YOU.

AND I WANT TO SHOW YOU LIZ

MITCHELL, WHO IS A WALKING

MIRACLE.

AFTER SHE BROKE HER NECK,

DOCTORS SAID LIZ WOULD

NEVER WALK AGAIN.

BUT SHE AND HER BOYFRIEND

REFUSED TO BELIEVE THAT

REPORT.

INSTEAD, THEY TRUSTED THE

POWER OF PRAYER.

Reporter: IN THE FALL

OF 2012, DALLAS DISTRICT

ATTORNEY LIZ MITCHELL WERE WAS

IN GREAT SHAPE, BOTH FIS

PHYSICALLY AND

PROFESSIONALLY.

BUT HER QUEST FOR

PERFECTION CAME AT A

PRICE.

INSIDE I WAS EMPTY.

NOTHING WERE YO WAS EVER GOOD

ENOUGH FOR ME.

I HAD THE LOVE OF FAMILY

AND FRIENDS, BUT I JUST

ALWAYS WAS LACKING

SOMETHING, BUT I DIDN'T

KNOW WHAT THAT WAS.

Reporter: LIZ WAS

ABOUT TO FIND OUT.

SHE WAS ENTERING HER

SECOND FLOOR APARTMENT ONE

NIGHT WHEN HER DOG RUSHED

OUT TO GREET HER.

SHE LOST HER BALANCE AND

FELL TO THE RAILING,

17 FEET TO THE PAVEMENT

BELOW.

I REMEMBER LAYING ON

THE GROUND AND JUST KIND

OF CLOSING MY EYES AND

THINKING, I'M SO SORRY.

IT WAS MORE OF, LIKE, AN

APOLOGY TO GOD.

Reporter: LIZ WAS

RUSHED TO BAYLOR

UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER.

WHEN BRIAN, HER BOYFRIEND,

ARRIVED WITH HER FAMILY,

THE DOCTOR TOLD THEM SHE

HAD BROKEN HER NECK.

I REMEMBER HIS WORDS,

HE SAID, SHE'LL BE

PARALYZED FROM THE CHEST

DOWN AND SHE'LL NEVER WALK

AGAIN.

HEARING THOSE WORDS FROM A

DOCTOR HITS YOU LIKE A

LOAD OF BRICKS.

Reporter: THEIR

RELATIONSHIP OF ONLY SIX

MONTHS WAS BASED ON

PHYSICAL ATTRACTION AND

HAVING A GOOD TIME.

BUT NOW BRIAN HAD TO

DECIDE IF THERE WAS

SOMETHING MORE.

SEEING HER LYING IN A

BED, UNABLE TO MOVE, TUBES

IN HER MOUTH, MACHINES

BEEPING IN THE BACKGROUND,

A SWOLLEN FACE, AND IT

JUST COMPLETELY STRIPPED

THE SUPERFICIAL LOOKS THAT

WERE SORT OF DRIVING OUR

RELATIONSHIP.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT FEW DAYS, BRIAN

SHIFTED TO ANOTHER THING

HE ABANDONED.

I WAS RAISED IN THE

CHURCH AND I ALWAYS HAD A

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST,

BUT IT WASN'T A FULFILLING

ONE ON MY END.

AS SOON AS THE ACCIDENT

HAPPENED, I DID A COMPLETE

180, AND IT BROUGHT ABOUT

A HUGE CHANGE IN MY FAITH.

AND I SAID, THE MOMENT SHE

WAKES UP, WE'RE GOING TO

GO TO WORK AND WE'RE GOING

TO TRY TO MAXIMIZE

WHATEVER GOD ALLOWS HER TO

GET BACK, AND I'M GOING TO

BE HER ROCK, ALONGSIDE

WITH HER.

Reporter: WHEN LIZ

CAME OUT OF THE COMA FOUR

DAYS LATER, SHE ALSO

REDEDICATED HER LIFE TO

JESUS.

I JUST ALL OF A SUDDEN

FOUND MYSELF IN THIS

SHELL, THIS BODY THAT I

THOUGHT WAS OW SO IMPORTANT,

AND IT WAS COMPLETELY

USELESS.

AT THAT POINT, MY MIND

JUST MADE A SHIFT, THAT I

WAS NEVER GOING TO BE IN

CONTROL OF MY LIFE, THAT

IT WAS IN THE HANDS OF

GOD.

AND WHATEVER WAS TO HAPPEN

WAS GOING TO BE HIS WILL

FOR ME.

AND THERE WAS NO SADNESS.

THERE WAS NO RESENTMENT.

IT WAS PEACE.

A FEELING OF PEACE FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

Reporter: AS BRIAN

BROKE THE NEWS TO LIZ OF

HER PROGNOSIS, HE ALSO

MADE A PROMISE.

HE WAS VERY QUICK TO

SAY, YOU KNOW, EVEN IF

YOU'RE IN A WHEELCHAIR, I

STILL LOVE YOU.

AND WE'LL HAVE A BEAUTIFUL

LIFE.

FROM THAT DAY FORWARD, HE

WAS BY MY SIDE, ALWAYS.

Reporter: BRIAN AND

LIZ PRAYED TOGETHER EVERY

NIGHT.

AND WHAT WAS ONCE A

SUPERFICIAL RELATIONSHIP

QUICKLY BECAME A SPIRITUAL

ONE.

IT WAS THROUGH THOSE

CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD

THAT WE TRULY STARTED TO

BUILD THAT FOUNDATION

TOGETHER.

BUT IT WAS ALSO JUST

DURING THAT TIME THAT WE

FELL IN LOVE, TRULY IN

LOVE.

Reporter: BUT WHILE

BRIAN AND LIZ'S FAITH WAS

PROGRESSING, LIZ'S

RECOVERY SEEMED TO BE AT A

STANDSTILL.

EVERY NIGHT BRIAN WOULD

ASK ME TO MOVE MY TOES.

I WOULD CONCENTRATE AND

USE EVERY AMOUNT OF ENERGY

I HAD TO TRY TO MOVE MY

TOES AND STILL WOULD GET

NOTHING.

Reporter: LIZ WAS

TRANSFERRED TO BAYLOR

REHABILITATION CENTER AND

MET WITH HER DOCTORS.

I VERY, POINTBLANK,

STATED I WANTED TO WALK

OUT OF THE HOSPITAL.

I WAS TOLD AT THAT TIME

THAT I NEEDED TO LOWER MY

EXPECTATIONS, AND THAT I

WAS THERE BECAUSE THEY

WANTED TO TEACH ME HOW TO

BECOME INDEPENDENT IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

Reporter: BRIAN

DECIDED TO PRAY AND ASK

GOD FOR A MIRACLE.

I SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT?

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

YOUR TEAM SAYS BECAUSE

WE'VE GOT THE ULTIMATE

HEALER ON OUR SIDE.

AND IF I IT IS HIS WILL,

YOU'RE GOING TO WALK.

I SAID, LORD, I HAVE

NOTHING RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE COMPLETELY BROKEN.

I NEED SOME GUIDANCE.

I NEED SOMETHING TO MAKE

ME FEEL LIKE THIS IS GOING

TO BE OKAY.

PLEASE GIVE LIZ SOMETHING.

WE PULLED BACK THE

SHEETS AND ASKED ME TO

MOVE MY LEGS.

SHOW ME WHAT YOU JUST

DID.

THIS IS AWESOME.

I'M MOVING MY LEGS.

I'M SO PROUD OF YOU,

BABY.

THAT WAS THE TURNING POINT

IN HER RECOVERY.

THE STEPS AND THE MIRACLES

THAT WE SAW UNFOLD WITH

OUR EYES ARE SOMETHING

THAT CAN'T BE EXPLAINED BY

SCIENCE.

Reporter: LESS THAN

THREE MONTHS AFTER HER

ACCIDENT, LIZ WALKED OUT

OF THE REHAB CENTER.

A FEW MONTHS LATER, LIZ

AND BRIAN GOT MARRIED.

BUT THE MIRACLES WEREN'T

OVER YET.

ON SEPTEMBER 16, DOROTHY

WAS BORN.

AND THEY CHOSE THE NAME

DOROTHY BECAUSE IT MEANS

GOD'S GIFT.

CONSIDERING WHERE LIZ

STARTED, COMPLETELY

PARALYZED FROM THE NECK

DOWN, AND THEN SHE IS IN

THE DELIVERY ROOM PUSHING

HER OWN BABY OUT, THERE IS

NO WAY YOU COULDN'T

BELIEVE THAT IS A MIRACLE.

Reporter: LIZ AND

BRIAN ARE GRATEFUL FOR ALL

OF THEIR BLESSINGS.

BUT MOST OF ALL, THEY

TREASURY THE FACT THAT

GOD'S LOVE GAVE THEM A

SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE.

WE COULD NOT BE HAPPIER

HAPPIER.

IT IS SUCH A MORE

FULFILLING LIFE TODAY,

AFTER THE ACCIDENT, THAN

WE EVER COULD HAVE

IMAGINED.

WHAT LOOKS LIKE A CURSE

HAS ACTUALLY BECOME THE

BIGGEST BLESSING IN MY

LIFE BECAUSE I'M NOW THE

PERSON I'M SUPPOSED TO BE.

I'M THE HAPPIEST WOMAN

YOU'LL PROBABLY EVER MEET.

I HAVE THE LOVE OF THE

LORD.

I HAVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

FAMILY.

AND JUST THE LOVE I DIDN'T

EVER THINK WAS POSSIBLE.

GOD'S LOVE IS ABSOLUTE.

AND IT IS ALL THAT MATTERS

IN THIS WORLD.

WHATEVER THAT EMPTINESS IS

IN YOUR HEART THAT YOU'RE

TRYING TO FILL WITH OTHER

THINGS, THOSE THINGS DON'T

MATTER.

THEY'RE NOT FOREVER.

HIS LOVE IS FOREVER.

SO IT IS NEVER TOO LATE.

Pat: I HAVE THE LOVE

OF GOD IN MY HEART.

WHAT MORE WONDERFUL THING,

THING -- EVERYBODY THINKS,

I DON'T HAVE THIS AND I

DON'T HAVE THAT.

I HAVE THE LOVE OF GOD IN

MY HEART.

I'VE GOT SOMEBODY WHO

LOVES ME.

AND I'VE GOT A FAMILY

AROUND WHO LOVE ME.

THAT'S PRECIOUS.

THAT'S PRECIOUS.

PRAISE GOD FOR WHAT YOU'VE

GOT.

NOW, WE HAVE PITA OF

WHITNEY, TEXAS.

AND SHE HAD A BICYCLE

ACCIDENT AND SEVERELY

INJURED HER HEAD, FACE,

AND ARM.

SHE WAS TAKEN TO THE

HOSPITAL AND REMAINED

UNCONSCIOUS FOR THREE

DAYS.

IT WAS A LOSS OF SMELL AND

TASTE.

IN AUGUST, PITA WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM, AND

TERRY, YOU HAD THIS WORD:

"THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

SUFFERED CONCUSSIONS FROM

SKULL FRACTURES BEING

HEALED."

AND THEN "I DON'T KNOW

WHAT CAUSED THIS, BUT YOU

LOST YOUR SENSE OF SMELL."

YOU DIDN'T KNOW PITA?

Terry: I STILL DON'T

KNOW PITA.

Pat: PITA SAID,

THAT'S ME.

SHE WAS HEALED, AND GOD IS

PRAISED.

Terry: DEBRA LIVES

RIGHT HERE IN VIRGINIA

BEACH, AND SHE IS A LUNG

CANCER SURVIVOR OF FOUR

YEARS.

LAST JULY SHE CAME DOWN

WITH PNEUMONIA AND SHE WAS

VERY ILL.

ON AUGUST 1st SHE WOKE

TO SEVERE COUGHING AND WAS

TAKEN TO THE E.R. AND SHE

WAS DIAGNOSED WITH K.O.

C.O.P.D. AND EMPHYSEMA.

ONE WEEK LATER, SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM AND

YOU SAID. "SOMEONE HAS A

BREATHING PROBLEM RIGHT

NOW.

IT IS EMPHYSEMA.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR

CHEST AND IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, TOUCH."

DEBRA SAID, THAT'S ME.

AND SHE PUT THE MACHINE

AWAY AND HASN'T USED IT

SINCE.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

AMAZING.

LISTEN, GOD IS GREAT.

I WAS TALKING TO HIM JUST

THIS MORNING.

AND I WAS READING JOB.

AND GOD SAID TO JOB, STAND

UP AND TALK TO ME.

YOU'RE THE GUY COMPLAINING

ABOUT ALL OF THIS STUFF,

STAND UP LIKE A MAN AND

LET ME TALK TO YOU.

WHERE WHER WERE YOU WHEN I LAID

THE FOUNDATION OF THE

EARTH?

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I SET

THE DOWNED DEARS OF THE BOUNDARIES OF THE SEA?

AND JOB SAID, HEY, I

THOUGHT I HEARD ABOUT YOU,

BUT NOW I BEHOLD YOU.

FOLKS, WHEN YOU SEE GOD,

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

NOW, WE'VE SHOWN YOU ON

THIS PROGRAM TODAY

MIRACLES THAT TOOK PLACE.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN

TOGETHER, AND WE'RE GOING

TO PRAY FOR YOU.

RIGHT NOW.

Terry: YEAH.

Pat: FATHER, WE THANK

BLESSING OF GOD.

WE THANK YOU FOR THIS LAND

LOVED ONES.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR OUR

FAMILIES.

LORD, PLEASE RECEIVE OUR

THANKS.

WE'RE GRATEFUL, LORD --, FOR

ALL YOU'VE DONE.

> AND NOW, THERE IS

SOMEBODY PARALYZED -- IT

SEEMS LIKE POLIO -- I

THOUGHT HAD BEEN

ELIMINATED, BUT YOU MAY

HAVE BEEN PARALYZED FROM

YEARS BACK.

RIGHT NOW HEAT IS GOING

THROUGH YOUR BODY AND YOU

WILL BE ABLE TO STAND AND

WALK AND BE TALL IN THE

NAME OF JESUS NOW.

TOUCH!

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOUR NAME IS

DAVID OR DAVIS, BUT YOU

HAVE A BUSINESS THAT

YOU'VE STARTED, AND IT IS

IN DIRE STRAITS.

YOU ARE HEART-SICK.

HOLD ON, GOD'S ANSWER FOR

YOU IS COMING.

THAT BUSINESS IS GOING TO

BE RESURRECTED.

YOU'LL SEE.

Pat: THERE IS A WOMAN

I THOUGHT WAS MARY, BUT IT

IS MARIGOLD.

AND YOU HAVE LUPUS, AND

GOD HAS JUST TOUCHED YOU.

YOU'LL FIND LIKE A HAND

GOING OVER YOUR ENTIRE

BODY, AND ALL OF THE

EFFECTS OF LUPUS ARE GOING

TO BE TAKEN AWAY.

THANK YOU, LORD.

WE PRAY FOR THIS NATION --

WE THANK YOU FOR ALL WE

HAVE ENJOYED IN THIS LAND

OF PROSPERITY AND

BLESSING.

TAKEN AWAY BECAUSE OF OUR

SIN.

AS A NATION.

WE COME BEFORE YOU NOW AND

LAND.

HEAL OUR LAND.

DIANA SAYS, "CAN YOU

EXPLAIN THE ELECTORAL

VOTE?

MANY OF US WONDER WHAT IS

THE USE OF VOTING WHEN

THIS ELECTORAL VOTE SEEMS

TO SUPERSEDE?"

Pat: THE STATES ARE

GIVEN SO MANY VOTES IN THE

ELECTORAL COLLEGE, AND

THEORETICALLY, THEY SELECT

ELECTORS WHO GO TOGETHER

AND MAKE THE VOTE.

RYE NOW THE ELECTORS

FOLLOW THE JOAT O VOTE OF THE

GENERAL POPULATION.

IF ANY DECIDED TO GO ON A

VENTURE, I THINK THEY

WOULD BE LYNCHED.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

THEY HAVE ALWAYS DONE WHAT

THE PEOPLE SAID, SO YOUR

VOTE COUNTS.

Terry: THIS IS

CHRISTINA WHO SAYS, "HI,

PAT.

I STEPPED AWAY FROM THE

CHURCH AND CAME BACK IN

UNCOMFORTABLE, LIKE I WAS

BOG JUDGED.

HOW DO YOU FIND THE

PERFECT CHURCH?

I FEEL LIKE I ALWAYS GET

JUDGED BY THE PEOPLE OF

THE CHURCH EITHER WAY.

I DO DEAL WITH ANXIETY AND

DEPRESSION.

I DON'T WANT IT TO GET IN

MY WAY."

Pat: SOMEBODY SAID,

WON'T BE PERFECT.

FOCUS ON THE LORD.
