CHRISTIANS THAT THEY'VE

HAD IN A LONG TIME.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

DONALD TRUMP IS MEETING

WITH THE MEDIA TODAY.

HIS FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE

SINCE WINNING THE WHITE

HOUSE.

AND TWO OF THE HOTTEST

TOPICS, IS HIS RELATIONS

WITH RUSSIA AND THE

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS FOR

HIS CABINET CHOICES.

Wendy: TRUMP'S CHOICE

FOR SECRETARY OF STATE

GOES BEFORE THE SENATE

TODAY, AND THE DEMOCRATS

ARE TAKING ON JEFF

SESSIONS.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

STORY.

George: REX

TILLERSON, TAPPED TO BE

DONALD TRUMP'S SECRETARY

OF STATE, IS EXPECTED TO

FACE A CONTENTIOUS

CONFIRMATION HEARING.

LAWMAKERS PLAN TO GRILL

THE FORMER EXXON C.E.O.

ABOUT CONNECTIONS TO

VLADIMIR PUTIN, AS WELL AS

HIS NUMEROUS GLOBAL

BUSINESS TIES.

DESPITE THE POLITICAL

THEATRICS, MOST EXPECT HIM

TO BE CONFIRMED AS

AMERICA'S NEXT TOP

DIPLOMAT.

DO YOU SWEAR THAT THE

TESTIMONY YOU'RE ABOUT TO

GIVE BEFORE THIS

COMMITTEE...

George: AND TRUMP'S

ATTORNEY-GENERAL NOMINEE,

ALABAMA SENATOR, JEFF

SESSIONS, IS BACK FOR

ANOTHER ROUND AFTER FACING

HOURS OF QUESTIONING ON

ISSUES FROM NATIONAL

SECURITY, SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, ABORTION RIGHTS,

TO A BAN ON MUSLIMS COMING

TO AMERICA.

WOULD YOU SUPPORT A LAW

THAT SAYS YOU CAN'T COME

TO AMERICA BECAUSE YOU'RE

A MUSLIM?

NO.

George: SESSIONS ALSO

SPENT TIME DEFENDING HIS

RECORD AND DENYING

ALLEGATIONS OF RACIAL

ANIMOSITY, ACCUSATIONS

THAT DERAILED HIS FEDERAL

JUDICIAL NOMINATION 30

YEARS AGO.

I AM THE SAME PERSON,

PERHAPS WISER, AND MAYBE A

LITTLE BETTER -- I HOPE SO

TODAY -- THAN I WAS THEN,

BUT I DID NOT HARBOR THE

KIND OF ANIMOSITIES AND

RACE-BASED DISCRIMINATION

IDEAS I WAS ACCUSED OF.

I DID NOT.

George: MORE

CONFIRMATION HEARINGS ARE

SCHEDULED THROUGHOUT THE

WEEK.

AND TWO MONTHS AFTER

WINNING THE PRESIDENCY,

DONALD TRUMP HOLDS HIS

FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE

TODAY.

HE IS EXPECTED TO FACE

QUESTIONS ABOUT AN

UNVERIFIED REPORT WITH

ALLEGATIONS THAT RUSSIA

HAS COMPROMISING PERSONAL

AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION

ON HIM THAT COULD BE

DAMAGING.

TRUMP RESPONDED IN ALL

CAPS ON TWITTER, BLASTING

THE UNSUBSTANTIATED REPORT

AT FAKE NEWS.

AND THE KREMLIN ALSO

CHIMED IN, CALLING THE

ALLEGATIONS POP FICTION.

> THE STORY BROKE JUST

HOURS BEFORE PRESIDENT

OBAMA TOOK THE STAGE IN

CHICAGO FOR HIS FAREWELL

SPEECH.

President Obama:

TONIGHT IT IS MY TURN TO

SAY THANKS.

WHETHER WE HAVE SEEN EYE

TO EYE OR RARELY AGREED AT

ALL, MY CONVERSATIONS WITH

YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,

IN LIVING ROOMS AND IN

SCHOOLS, IN FARMS, ON

FACTORY FLOORS, IN DINERS,

AND ON DISTANT MILITARY

OUTPOSTS -- THOSE

CONVERSATIONS ARE WHAT

HAVE KEPT ME HONEST AND

KEPT ME INSPIRED AND KEPT

ME GOING.

AND EVERY DAY I HAVE

LEARNED FROM YOU.

YOU MADE ME A BETTER

PRESIDENT.

YOU AND YOU MADE ME A

BETTER MAN.

George: BUT THE MAN

SET TO TAKE OVER FROM HIM

HAS VOWED TO UNDO MANY OF

HIS SIGNATURE POLICIES,

INCLUDING OBAMACARE.

TRUMP TELLING CONGRESS TO

REPEAL AND REPLACE THE LAW

IMMEDIATELY.

IN ADDITION TO FOCUSING ON

OBAMACARE, THERE ARE SIGNS

THAT TRUMP'S ECONOMIC PLAN

COULD HAVE POSITIVE

RESULTS.

THE WORLD BANK SAYS

TRUMP'S TAX CUTS COULD

JUMP-START THE U.S.

ECONOMY AND GROWTH AROUND

THE WORLD.

AND IT APPEARS AMERICA'S

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS

CAN'T WAIT, EITHER.

A SURVEY SHOWS OPTIMISM

SURGING BY THE MOST SINCE

1980.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, GEORGE.

THAT SPEECH OF OBAMA, HE

MENTIONED HIMSELF I THINK

75 TIMES.

HIS SPEECH WAS LONGER THAN

THE COMBINED FAREWELL

SPEECHES OF RONALD REAGAN,

OF BILL CLINTON, AND OF

GEORGE BUSH.

Wendy: HE DID DO A

LOT OF PATTING HIMSELF ON

THE BACK.

Pat: 75 TIMES.

WHAT A GREAT GUY HE IS.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

ECONOMY, WHICH IS IN

SHAMBLES, GROWTH IS AT

HISTORIC LOW, BUSINESSES

ARE FAILING, AND WE'RE

STRUGGLING, AND YOU CAN

SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

THE STOCK MARKET AND THE

WHOLE OPTIMISM OF

ESPECIALLY SMALL BUSINESS

OWNERS, AND IT IS AMAZING,

JUST THE FACT OF TRUMP'S

APPEARANCE HAS LIFTED THE

SPIRITS OF NOT ONLY

AMERICA, BUT THE WHOLE

WORLD.

THAT IS AN AMAZING

ACCOMPLISHMENT.

> THE MAN WHO SHOT NINE

BLACK CHURCH MEMBERS HAS

NOW BEEN GIVEN HIS

DECISION BY A FEDERAL

JURY.

THAT IS A VERY APPROPRIATE

DEATH SENTENCE.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THIS.

Efrem: THE JURY

SENTENCED DYLANN ROOF TO

DEATH FOR KILLING NINE

BLACK CHURCH MEMBERS

DURING A BIBLE STUDY AT A

CHURCH IN CHARLESTON,

SOUTH CAROLINA.

RELATIVES OF THE VICTIMS

BELIEVE JUSTICE HAS BEEN

SERVED.

I'M HAPPY HE GOT A FAIR

TRIAL.

I'M ALSO HAPPY HE GOT THE

DEATH PENALTY.

BUT WE STILL DON'T HAVE

OUR FAMILY MEMBERS.

MY SISTER WAS KILLED.

THIS COMMUNITY PULLED

TOGETHER IN A WAY I HAD

NEVER SEEN.

Efrem: ROOF ACTED AS

HIS OWN ATTORNEY IN THE

SENTENCING PHRASE.

HE DID NOT OFFER

APOLOGIES, BUT INSTEAD

SAID, QUOTE, "I STILL FEEL

LIKE I HAD TO DO IT."

ROOF ALSO FACES A STATE

TRIAL, WHERE HE COULD BE

SENTENCED TO DEATH AGAIN.

> CHRISTIANITY IS

APPARENTLY GAINING GROUND

AMONG THE NEXT GENERATION

IN CHINA.

MANY MILLENNIALS ARE

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS TO

LIFE'S BIG QUESTIONS IN

CHURCH.

AND CHRISTIAN LEADERS ARE

HOPEFUL THE YOUNGER

GENERATION COULD BRING

THEIR NATION CLOSER TO

GOD.

Reporter: CHINA IS

GETTING YOUNGER AND

YOUNGER.

24 MILLION PEOPLE LIVE IN

SHANGHAI, AND

THREE-FOURTHS ARE

MILLENNIALS, ADULTS

BETWEEN THE AGES OF 20 AND

33.

THIS AGE DEMOGRAPHIC IS

MOVING TO SHANGHAI FOR

SEVERAL REASONS.

Through Translator: I

MOVED TO SHANGHAI A FEW

YEARS AGO.

MY FRIENDS KEPT TELLING ME

I COULD FIND BETTER JOBS

HERE.

I WANT TO EARN MORE MONEY

FOR MY FAMILY.

Reporter: BESIDES

LOOKING FOR JOBS,

MILLENNIALS HAVE ALSO

JOINED THE CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY TO COPE WITH

SOCIETAL PRESSURE.

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE

INCREASING RETURNING TO

SUPPORT GROUPS AND

SPIRITUALITY.

62% OF CHINA'S RELIGIOUS

BELIEVERS ARE BETWEEN THE

AGES OF 19 AND 39.

Through Translator:

ONE DAY MY FRIEND INVITED

ME TO CHURCH AFTER WORK.

IT WAS NEW TO ME.

AS I LISTENED TO THE

MUSIC, ALL OF A SUDDEN I

FELT SO PEACEFUL.

I FELT SOMETHING SPECIAL.

Reporter: CHRISTIAN

LEADERS IN SHANGHAI SAY

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE SEEKING

OUT CHURCHES BECAUSE THEY

WANT A PLACE WHERE THEY

CAN TAKE A BREAK AND

EXPRESS THEMSELVES OPENLY.

Through Translator:

LIVING IN THE BIG CITY IS

NOT EASY FOR THEM.

MANY OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE

SHARE WITH ME THAT THEY

FACE BURDENS ALL THE TIME.

SOME OF THEM JUST TRY TO

ME AND ASK ME TO HELP

THEM.

Reporter: CHURCH

LEADERS USE BIBLICAL

TRUTHS TO HELP MILLENNIALS

COPE WITH LIFE.

THEY SHARE THEIR OWN

EXPERIENCES AND TELL THEM

ABOUT GOD'S GRACE.

Through Translator:

FOR THE SINGLE PEOPLE, I

UNDERSTAND THEY'RE

CONCERNS.

I READ THE STORY OF RUTH

AND EXPLAINED THE MEANING

TO THEM.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY

UNDERSTOOD THAT I HAD THE

SAME STRUGGLE BEFORE, BUT

GOD IS FAITHFUL.

Reporter: CHINESE

YOUNG ADULTS WHO ATTEND

CHURCH SERVICES REGULARLY

SAY THEY HAVE LEARNED TO

PRAY FOR THEMSELVES AND

THEIR FAMILIES, AND THEY

NO LONGER FEEL EMPTY

INSIDE.

Through Translator:

NOW I AM A CHRISTIAN.

I AM NOT AFRAID OF

ANYTHING.

JESUS IS ALWAYS WITH ME.

I'M NOT ALONE WHEN I FACE

DIFFICULTIES.

Reporter: SHANGHAI IS

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT

CITIES IN CHINA.

CHURCHES ARE PLANNING TO

ORGANIZE MORE EVENTS TO

REACH MILLENNIALS THERE

BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THIS

YOUNG GENERATION COULD BE

THE ONLY WAY TO BRING THE

CITY CLOSER TO GOD.

Through Translator:

WE WANT TO USE ALL OF THE

RESOURCES TO BUILD A

BRIDGE BETWEEN YOUNG

PEOPLE AND OUR SAVIOUR.

THEY COULD DO SOME AMAZING

WORK FOR JESUS.

Reporter: CAITLIN

BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: AMAZING TO

SEE.

GOD ON THE MOVE.

PAT?

Pat: I'VE BEEN THERE

AND SPOKEN IN THOSE

CHURCHES, SPOKEN OUT ON

THOSE STREETS.

TO SEE THE HUNGER FOR GOD

IN CHINA IS OVERWHELMING.

AND WHEN YOU GO BACK INTO

THE CONGIES, THE PICTORIAL

LANGUAGE THAT IS THE ROOT

OF CHINA, IT REFLECTS

RIGHT BACK TO THE OLD

TESTAMENT TIME AND TIME

AGAIN.

I'VE TALKED TO LEADERS,

INCLUDING THE FOREIGN

MINISTER ABOUT THOSE

THINGS, AND I SAID, LOOK,

HERE IT IS, IN YOUR

LANGUAGE, PRIMITIVE

CHRISTIANITY.

IT'S RIGHT THERE.

AND THEY GO BACK TO ALMOST

LIKE TO GENESIS.

IT IS AN AMAZING THING.

AND THE CHINESE -- I'VE

SAID IT BEFORE AND I'LL

SAY IT AGAIN -- CHINA IS

GOING TO BECOME THE

LARGEST CHRISTIAN NATION

IN THE WORLD.

THESE YOUNG PEOPLE DON'T

BUY INTO MAO ZEDONG.

AND THEY'RE LOOKING TO

SOMETHING TO FULFILL THE

YEARNING IN THEIR HEARTS,

AND THEY'RE TURNING TO

JESUS.

AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY

WONDERFUL.

JUST KEEP YOUR EYES ON IT.

AND ALL THIS BICOASTAL

TALK ABOUT WE'RE GOING TO

FIGHT CHINA AND

EVERYTHING -- THE CHINESE

PEOPLE CAN'T AFFORD A WAR.

THE COUNTRY DOESN'T HAVE

THAT KIND OF MONEY.

AND THEY NEED FRIENDSHIP.

BUT THESE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE

THE ANSWER, AND WE SHOULD

DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO

ENCOURAGE THAT RELIGIOUS

REVIVAL IN CHINA.

EFREM?

Efrem: SMOKING IS

HITTING THE WORLD WITH A

HIGH COST TO BOTH LIFE AND

THE ECONOMY.

ACCORDING TO A NEW REPORT

FROM THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION AND THE U.S.

CANCER INSTITUTE, ABOUT

SIX MILLION PEOPLE DIE

EVERY YEAR FROM SMOKING,

AND IT COSTS THE WORLD

MORE THAN A TRILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR IN HEALTH

CARE AND LOSS OF

PRODUCTIVITY.

SMOKING HITS POOR

COUNTRIES THE HARDEST.

TOBACCO USE CAN LEAD TO

CANCER, HEART DISEASE, AND

DIABETES.

PAT?

Pat: WELL, WE BANNED

MARIJUANA AND WE BANNED

COCAINE AND WE BANNED

OTHER TYPES OF OP OPIOIDS,

BUT THE TIME HAS COME FOR

A BAN ON TOBACCO.

WE'RE LIMITING THE USE OF

TOBACCO IN AMERICA AND

WE'RE EXPORTING THOSE

THINGS LIKE CRAZY INTO

THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES.

THE BIG ADVERTISING PUSH

IS TO HOOK YOUNG PEOPLE ON

SMOKING.

AND IN INDONESIA AND

COUNTRIES LIKE THAT, IT IS

JUST DISGRACEFUL.

AND I THINK THE WORLD

BODY, IF IT EVER DID

ANYTHING IMPORTANT, IT

WOULD BE TO PUT A BAN ON

TOBACCO.

THERE SHOULD BE SOME TAX

CONSIDERATIONS SO THE

TOBACCO COMPANIES CAN HAVE

SOME MONEY TO DO SOMETHING

MORE PROFITABLE.

MAYBE THEY CAN GET INTO

PHARMACEUTICALS OR

SOMETHING.

BUT THEY CANNOT ANY LONGER

BE PUTTING THIS DREAD

DISEASE ON COUNTRIES.

THIS IS AN EXPORT FROM

AMERICA THAT HAS GOT TO

STOP.

Wendy: I THERE WOULD BE

QUITE THE BLACK MARKET FOR

CIGARETTES IF THAT HAPPENS

BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A

STRONG ADDICTION.

FOR PEOPLE WHO SMOKE, I'VE

SEEN THE STRUGGLE THEY'VE

HAD.

THERE IS ALMOST LIKE A

REINSURGENTRESURGENCE OF PEOPLE

SMOKING THESE DAYS.

Pat: 21 DAYS TO BREAK

A HABIT.

I USED TO SMOKE.

Wendy: HARD TO

BELIEVE.

WERE YOU IN YOUR 20s?

Pat: YEAH.

I WAS IN LAW SCHOOL, AND I

HAD SEEN SOME OF THE

EVIDENCE, PICTURES OF WHAT

SMOKING COULD DO TO YOU,

AND I JUST QUIT.

Wendy: MY DAD WA DID IT

EASIER, BUT NOT SO MUCH

FOR MY MOM.

Pat: IT USED TO BE

YOU REALLY LIKED THEM.

AND THEN AFTER 21 DAYS, IT

IS REVOLTING TO GO INTO A

BAR WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF

CIGARETTES AND BUTTS IN AN

ASHTRAY -- IT IS

REVOLTING.

YOUR BODY ACTUALLY TURNS

AGAINST IT.

21 DAYS, SMOKERS, AND

YOU'RE FREE.

FREEDOM!

Efrem: PAT, FOR THE

LAST FEW DAYS, "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" SNOW BUDDY'S

PROGRAM HAS BEEN HELPING

SNOW-BOUND FAMILIES DIG

OUT AFTER THE WEEKEND'S

WINTER STORM.

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

I WAS GOING TO DO.

I HAVE TO GIVE MY HUSBAND

MEDICINE.

HE IS DIABETIC.

AND I HAVE TO GET IT BY

THURSDAY.

Efrem: THE BLACK ICE

ON THE ROADS MADE IT

IMPOSSIBLE FOR SUZANNE AND

GARY TO GET WHAT THEY

NEEDED FOR THEIR HELP.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

STOPPED IN AND GOT THEM

WHAT THEY NEEDED.

IT IS JUST REALLY

BEAUTIFUL THAT THERE ARE

STILL PEOPLE THAT CARE

ABOUT A LOT OF, YOU KNOW,

SENIORS, THAT JUST CAN'T

GET OUT THERE AND DO NICE TO SEE THEM

LENDING A HAND.

PAT?

Pat: I THINK BILL

HORAN SAID IT IS A

PRIVILEGE AND AN HONOR TO

SERVE OUR NEIGHBORS RIGHT

HERE AT HOME.

IT MAKES A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

WE HAD BLACK ICE ALL OVER

THE PLACE.

THEY COULDN'T DRIVE.

THEY COULDN'T MOVE.

THEY COULDN'T GET OUT.

TO HAVE A GROUP OF EAGER

VOLUNTEERS -- THAT WAS ONE

OF THE SERVICES THAT

"OPERATION BLESSING" DID

FOR THIS COMMUNITY AND

OTHERS.

WE'RE THERE HELPING

PEOPLE.

SO IF YOU WANT TO HELP

"OPERATION BLESSING," IT'S

1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com.

ISN'T THAT EXCITING?

Wendy: I LOVE IT.

I WAS NOTICING WHAT GREAT

EXERCISE THAT WOULD BE,

TOO, TO GET OUT THERE AND

SHOVEL.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

I DON'T THINK THEY DID IT

AS AN EXERCISE, BUT IT'S

GOOD.

Wendy: COMING UP,

THEY HAD THEIR SAY ON

ELECTION DAY, AND NOW

CHRISTIANS HOPE THAT MEANS

SOMEONE IN WASHINGTON WILL

FINALLY BE LISTENING.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT

GOD LISTENED TO THE

PRAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL

AROUND THIS COUNTRY AS WE

REACHED OUT ONE MORE TIME

AND SAID, YOU KNOW, GIVE

US ANOTHER CHANCE.

Wendy: HEAR WHAT

TRUMP'S AMERICA COULD MEAN

FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: AS DONALD TRUMP

PREPARES TO TAKE OVER AS

PRESIDENT, MANY

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS

FEEL LIKE THEY'RE COMING

OUT OF A POLITICAL DARK

AGE.

IS TRUMP USHERING A

RESURGENCE THE THE

RELIGIOUS RIGHT?

WELL, OUR WHITE HOUSE

CORRESPONDENT JENNIFER

WISHON TAKES A LOOK AT

THAT.

Jennifer: FOR NEARLY

A DECADE, IT SEEMED LIKE

WASHINGTON SENT

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS TO

WANDER IN THE WILDERNESS.

NOW THEY FEEL A SENSE OF

DELIVERANCE.

[APPLAUSE]

THE CHRISTIANS ARE

BEING TREATED BECAUSE WE

HAVE NOBODY TO REPRESENT

THE CHRISTIANS.

Jennifer: THROUGHOUT

HIS CAMPAIGN, DONALD TRUMP

REINFORCED HIS PROMISES.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, I

BROUGHT MY BIBLE, OKAY?

Jennifer: AND SINCE

WINNING THE ELECTION, HE

HAS APPOINTED ONE

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN

AFTER ANOTHER TO ITS

CABINET.

I WILL BE THE GREATEST

REPRESENTATIVE OF THE THE

CHRISTIANS THAT THEY'VE

HAD IN A LONG TIME.

Jennifer: AND NOW THE

VAST MAJORITY OF

EVANGELICALS WHO HELPED

SENT TRUMP TO THE WHITE

HOUSE ARE READY TO REAP

THEIR REWARDS.

THOSE INCLUDE THE

APPOINTMENT OF PRO-LIFE

SUPREME COURT JAWFORTS AND

THE BANNINJUSTICES,AND THE BANNING OF

LATE-TERM ABORTION.

THE BABY WHO HAS

EYELASHES AND FINGERNAILS,

WHO CAN HEAR AND RESPOND

TO ITS MOTHER'S VOICE AND

FEEL PAIN DESERVES

PROTECTION, AND HE HAS

AGREED TO SIGN THAT INTO

LAW.

Jennifer: PENNY NANCE

SAYS IT FEELS LIKE A NEW

DAY IN WASHINGTON.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT

GOD LISTENED TO THE

PRAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL

AROUND THIS COUNTRY AS WE

REACHED OUT ONE MORE TIME

AND SAID, YOU KNOW, GIVE

US ANOTHER CHANCE.

Jennifer: THERE IS

ALSO AN EXPECTATION THAT

THE NEW PRESIDENT WILL

ENFORCE THE CONSTITUTIONAL

RIGHT FOR CHRISTIANS TO

LIVE THEIR FAITH AND OBEY

THEIR CONSCIENCE.

IT IS AN ISSUE THAT LED TO

AN HISTORIC TURNOUT ON

ELECTION DAY.

I THINK THERE IS NO

MORE IMPORTANT ISSUE AT

HOME OR AT BROAD THAN

FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE OR

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

Jennifer: CHARLES

HAYNES IS FOUNDER OF THE

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

INSTITUTE.

PEOPLE SEEM TO GET THE

IDEA THAT NOW IN THE

PUBLIC SQUARE, PEOPLE OF

FAITH SHOULD BE QUIET

ABOUT IT.

KEEP IT IN THEIR HOMES OR

THEIR CHURCHES OR PLACES

OF WORSHIP.

THAT'S ABSURD.

I DON'T WANT TO EQUATE

THIS AS TO PER

CONSTITUTIOPERSECUTION INTHE UNITED STATES COMPARED

TO WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN

CHINA OR ANYTHING LIKE

THAT.

BUT YOU'RE SEEING PEOPLE

OF FAITH BEING SQUEEZED

OUT.

WE'RE FINDING HOSTILITY IN

THE MEDIA.

IT IS OKAY TO RIDICULE A

CATHOLIC PRIEST FOR A

CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY,

THEY'RE ALMOST THE BRUNT

OF A JOKE.

Jennifer: THE

CHRISTIANS WISHED IT WAS A

JOKE WHEN THE U.S. CIVIL

RIGHTS COMMISSION ISSUED

ITS SEPTEMBER REPORT ON

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

THEY WROTE: "THE PHRASES

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM WILL

STAND FOR NOTHING, EXCEPT

FOR HYPOCRISY."

THIS REPORT WAS

APPALLING TO ME BECAUSE

REALLY ESSENTIALLY SAID

WHEN THERE IS A CONFLICT

BETWEEN PRINCIPLES IN OUR

PUBLIC ARENA,

NON-DISCRIMINATION, FOR

EXAMPLE, AND RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM, GUESS WHAT?

NON-CONGRATULATIONS ALWAYS

WINS.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM NEVER

HAS A VOICE.

Jennifer: WE'VE

ENTERED AN ERA, HE SAYS

WHERE THE CLAIM OF

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS

PERCEIVED AS AN EFFORT TO

DENY SOMEONE ELSE THEIR

RIGHTS.

BIKER BY USING LANGUAGE THAT

SUGGESTS THAT CHRISTIANS

WHO OBJECT OR WANT

ACCOMMODATION ARE BY

DEFINITION BIGOTS IS VERY

WRONG AND DANGEROUS.

Jennifer: IT IS A

FRUSTRATION THAT HAS

TURNED TO RELIEF WITH THE

NEW ARRIVAL OF AN ADVOCATE

IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND CHRISTIANS HAPPY WITH

TRUMP ARE THRILLED WITH

HIS VICE PRESIDENT.

FORMER CONGRESSMAN MIKE

WOLF SERVED WITH MIKE

PENCE IN THE HOUSE.

WE HAVE PROBABLY ONE OF

THE FINEST MEN THAT I'VE

EVER SERVED WITH AS VICE

PRESIDENT.

MIKE PENCE IS AN HONEST,

ETHICAL, DECENT, MORAL

MAN, A MAN OF GREAT FAITH.

Jennifer: WOLF ADDS

THAT THE CHURCH NEEDS TO

KEEP THE LINES OF

COMMUNICATION OPEN WITH

BOTH THE NEW PRESIDENT AND

CONGRESS, TO KEEP THIS

AGENDA MOVING IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: IT'S AMAZING.

CHRISTIANS AND EVANGELICAL

WENT 82% FOR TRUMP.

THEY'RE THE BIGGEST VOTING

BLOCK.

WITHOUT QUESTION HIS

PRESIDENCY WAS ASSURED

BECAUSE OF THE VOTES OF

THESE PEOPLE.

BUT HE SAID SOMETHING THAT

WAS, TO ME, JUST AMAZING.

HE SAID THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT -- YOU KNOW, I'M

GOING TO REPEAL THAT.

THIS IS THE FIRST

CANDIDATE I HAVE HEARD IN

MY LIFETIME TALK ABOUT

REPEALING THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT.

THAT WAS A LITTLE CLAUSE

IN THE INTERNAL CODE THAT

PROHIBITED THE SUPPORT OF

CANDIDATES FOR PUBLIC

OFFICE.

THAT HAS BEEN USED AS A

CLAW BY THE I.R.S. TO SHUT

CHURCHES UP FROM TALKING

ABOUT PUBLIC AFFAIRS.

AND THE MEDIA HAS TAKEN IT

AND THE LEFT HAS TAKEN IT

AND HAS SAID IT IS ILLEGAL

TO TALK ABOUT SUPPORTING A

CANDIDATE.

YOU HAVE, QUOTE, "BROKEN

THE LAW."

AND ON AND ON AND ON.

IT IS GOING TO CHANGE NOW,

IF THAT IS REPEALED.

AND TRUMP HAS GOT IT IN

HIS PLATFORM, IN HIS

CAMPAIGN, IN HIS PUBLIC

UTTERANCES, AND THAT'S ONE

HE HAS TO DELIVER ON.

IN MY OPINION, IT IS A

WHOLE LOT MORE IMPORTANT

THAN BUILDING A WALL TO

MEXICO.

> WE'VE GOT AN

INTERESTING GUEST COMING

UP.

TELL US ABOUT IT.

Wendy: THE MAN WHO

ONCE SAID SEX BEGINS IN

THE KITCHEN REWRITES THE

BOOK OF LOVE, KEVIN LEMAN.

WHEN WE RETURN.

Pat: WELL, A

RELATIONSHIP CAN BE LIKE

A, QUOTE, "GOOD MEAL."

IN ORDER TO ENJOY IT TO

THE FULLEST, SOMETIMES YOU

NEED A LITTLE ZEST.

OR MAYBE YOU THINK THAT

PART OF YOUR MARRIAGE IS

LONG GONE.

SO IF YOU'RE TRYING TO PUT

SOME SPICE BACK INTO YOUR

LIFE, YOU'VE GOT GOOD NEWS

FOR YOU: IT CAN HAPPEN

AGAIN IN JUST ONE WEEK,

ACCORDING TO OUR NEXT

GUEST.

OUR FRIEND, KEVIN LEMAN.

Reporter:

INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN

PSYCHOLOGIST AND

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

DR. KEVIN LEMAN SAYS

YOU'RE NOT ALONE.

MANY MEN AND WOMEN FEEL

THEY'RE MISSING OUT WHEN

IT COMES TO WHAT GOES ON

IN THE BEDROOM.

IN HIS LATEST BOOK, "HAVE

A NEW SEX LIFE BY FRIDAY,"

DR. LEMAN REVEALS SECRETS

ON HOW TO DEVELOP THE

INTIMACY YOU HAVE ALWAYS

WANTED WITH YOUR SPOUSE.

Pat: IS THIS GOIN IS OUTFIT GOING

TO BE SOMETHING FOR

GETTING YOU A BETTER SEX

LIFE?

SHORLTSHORTS IN THE MIDDLE OF A

SNOWSTORM?

I THINK IT WAS GOD'S

WILL FOR MY BAGS TO BE IN

CHARLOTTE.

Pat: SURELY SOMEBODY

COULD HAVE GOTTEN YOU SOME

PANTS.

AREN'T YOU COLD?

WE DECIDED WHEN PEOPLE

SEE PEOPLE IN AN

UNCOMFORTABLE POSITION,

DOING TV IN SHORTS, I

THINK PEOPLE HANDLE IT

WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR.

Pat: IN THE CHURCH,

IS IT A LITTLE

EMBARRASSING TO TALK ABOUT

SEX?

WE ALL DO IT, SO WHAT'S

THE STORY?

WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?

I SPOKE OUT AT RICK

WARREN'S CHURCH AND AT

CHRIST CHURCH IN PHOENIX,

A CHURCH OF 28,000 PEOPLE.

AND THE PASTOR ASKED ME,

KEVIN, WOULD YOU COME AND

TALK ABOUT SEX IN CHURCH.

I SAID, HEY, PASTOR, I'VE

BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK A

FEW TIMES.

WHAT KIND OF WORDS WOULD

YOU EXPECT TO COME OUT OF

MY MOUTH ON A SUNDAY

MORNING OR SATURDAY

EVENING?

AND HE SAID, WELL, WORDS

LIKE ORGASM.

AND I SAID, OH, OKAY, IF

THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT.

AND, PAT, YOU KNOW, THEY

TOLD ME AT SADDLEBACK THAT

THAT TALK WAS THE MOST

REQUESTED TALK THAN EIGHT

OUTSIDE SPEAKER THEY EVER

HAD AT SADDLEBACK.

THERE IS A HUNGER IN

CHURCH BECAUSE WE DON'T

TALK ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL

GIFT OF SEX.

I'VE BEEN MARRIED FOR 49

YEARS IN A ROW.

I'M GLAD TO SAY THAT YOU

DO CHANGE FOR SURE, YOU

SLOW DOWN, BUT SEX IS SUCH

A WONDERFUL GIFT.

WHY DON'T WE TALK ABOUT

IT.

I THINK GOD WAS THE

ORIGINAL HUMORIST WHEN HE

CAME UP WITH THIS ONE: THE

TWO SHALL BECOME ONE.

GOD, THAT'S PRETTY FUNNY

BECAUSE YOU MADE US SO

DIFFERENT.

Pat: I UNDERSTAND

THAT THE ACTIVITY IN A

WOMAN'S BODY IS UNREAL.

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

PHYSIOLOGICAL THINGS THAT

GO ON THAT MAKE IT

EXTREMELY PLEASURABLE TO

PREPARE HER FOR HAVING

BABIES.

AND HERE IS THE THING,

WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT,

WHO IS MORE PREPARED

BIOLOGICALLY TO REALLY

ENJOY THE GIFT OF SEX?

IS IT MEN OR IS IT WOMEN?

IT IS WOMEN BY FAR.

THE SEXUAL RESPONSE FROM A

WOMAN IS HUGE.

BUT, I SAY IN MY BOOK,

WOMEN ARE LIKE SLOW

COOKERS, CROCKPOTS.

AND MEN ARE LIKE

MICROWAVES.

MR. HAPPY IS READY TO ROCK

AND ROLL.

BUT FOR A WOMAN, IT COULD

BE 40 MINUTES BEFORE SHE

IS IN THE MOOD.

SO SHE NEEDS TO HAVE THIS

PERSON WHO LOVES HER AS

SHE IS.

EVERYBODY AT HOME COMPLETE

THIS SENTENCE: YOU'RE IN

GOOD HANDS WITH...ALL

STATE.

IT'S BEEN AROUND FOR

YEARS.

THAT'S HOW WOMEN WANT TO

FEEL, THAT THIS MAN LOVES

HER OUTSIDE THE BEDROOM.

SO SEX IS AN ALL-DAY

AFFAIR.

IT STARTS EARLY IN THE

MORNING WHEN YOU BRING

YOUR WIFE A CUP OF COFFEE

OR YOU RUB HER FEET OR

SCRATCH HER BACK.

WOMEN LOOK AT MEN AND SAY,

DO YOU REALLY LOVE ME?

DO YOU REALLY CARE?

IF THAT RESPONSE IS

POSITIVE, THEN THIS WOMAN

REALLY WANTS TO PLEASE

YOU.

I THINK GOD, WHEN HE GAVE

US THESE NEEDS: WOMEN LOVE

AFFECTION, THEY LOVE

COMMUNICATION, THEY LOVE

COMMITMENT TO THE FAMILY.

WHAT AREN'T MEN GREAT AT?

AFFECTION.

WE LOVE TO GRAB.

I NEVER HEARD A WOMAN SAY,

DR. LEMAN, I LOVE IT WHEN

MY HUSBAND GRABS ME.

THEY WANT TO BE TENDERLY

TOUCHED.

THAT'S WHY I SAY GOD WAS

THE GREATEST HUMORIST EVER

BECAUSE WE MEN WANT TO

FEEL NEEDED AND WANTED,

AND I ALWAYS TELL WOMEN,

THINK OF YOUR HUSBAND AS A

FOUR-YEAR-OLD THAT SHAVES.

HE IS A SIMPLE PERSON.

HE JUST WANTS TO KNOW THAT

HE IS APPRECIATED FOR THE

WORK HE DOES FOR THE

FAMILY.

AND HE SAYS, HEY, WHAT DO WHY DO

YOU THINK I'M GOING OUT

AND BEATING MY HEAD

AGAINST A WALL -- FOR YOU

AND THE KIDS.

THAT'S HIS LOVE LANGUAGE.

AND I THINK WE'VE BEEN

INSTILLED THAT SOMEHOW SEX

IS BAD OR WRONG OR FILTHY

OR DIRTY, AND NOTHING

COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE

TRUTH.

Pat: YOU POINT OUT

THAT MEN ARE THINKING

ABOUT SEX AND THEIR MALE

ORGAN SO MANY TIMES A DAY.

IS THAT TRUE UP AND DOWN

THE LINE OR JUST FOR YOUNG

MEN?

I DID A STUDY ABOUT HOW

MANY TIMES A MAN THINKS OF

SEX IN A GIVEN DAY AS

OPPOSED TO WOMEN.

IS IT TWICE AS MUCH, 10

TIMES AS MUCH OR 33 MORE

TIMES A DAY -- A DAY.

AND THE ANSWER IS 33 MORE

TIMES A DAY.

Pat: MEN ARE THINKING

33 TIMES MORE ABOUT SEX

THAN WOMEN?

YES.

I SHARED THAT WITH MY

WIFE, AND SHE SAID, THAT'S

SICK.

IT'S SORT OF HOW GOD HAS

MADE US.

MEN RESPOND TO SIGHT.

A SIMPLE JIGGLE OR A

WIGGLE, AND THAT MAN IS

READY.

FOREPLAY IN KEVIN LEMAN'S

HOUSE, CLEAN THE KITCHEN,

WIPE OFF ALL OF THE

COUNTER-TOPS, AND CHECK

THIS OUT, PAT, PUT THE

STUPID TOASTER AWAY.

WHY WOULD YOU PUT THE

STUPID TOASTER AWAY WHEN

YOU'RE GOING TO USE IT IN

24 HOURS OR LESS?

BUT MY WIFE -- THAT'S PART

OF FOREPLAY.

WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I USED

TO THINK, TAKE A SHOWER,

DO A LITTLE DANCE LIKE

YOUR ON "DANCING WITH THE

STARS."

AND AS MY WIFE SAID TO ME,

AS I SAY UNTO YOU, LEMY,

THAT'S NOT A GOOD LOOK.

SO YOU LEARN SEX OUTSIDE

OF THE BEDROOM, THE THINGS

YOU DO WITH YOUR WIFE --

IF YOU SAY TO YOUR WIFE,

HONEY, CAN WE JUST PRAY

AUDIBLY?

DO YOU WANT TO TURN YOUR

WIFE ON, GENTLEMEN, AND

YOU'RE A PERSON OF FAITH,

PRAY WITH YOUR WIFE.

Pat: AMEN.

BECAUSE THAT'S THE DEEPER

PART OF YOUR BEING, BEING

EXPOSED.

THIS THING OF SEX IS A

WONDERFUL GIFT.

GOD GAVE IT TO US, BUT WE

MISUSE IT, OF COURSE.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THIS

SECOND CHILDHOOD AND THE

TESTOSTERONE THAT

DIMINISHES AND ALL OF THE

OTHER THINGS THAT DIMINISH

OVER THE YEARS?

WELL, IT'S TRUE.

I'M ON SOCIAL SECURITY

MYSELF, AND YOU DO SLOW

DOWN PHYSICALLY AND

EMOTIONALLY.

WE'RE DOWN TO FOUR OR FIVE

TIMES A WEEK NOW, PAT.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: FOUR OR FIVE

TIMES -- YOU HAVE MY

PROFOUND SYMPATHY.

I'LL BE GLAD TO GET YOU

SOMETHING.

SERIOUSLY, I GO BACK TO

I THINK WOMEN LOOK AT US

EVERY DAY AND SAY, YOU

KNOW, DO YOU REALLY LOVE

ME?

DO YOU REALLY CARE?

THEY'RE ALWAYS WATCHING

US.

I THINK THE MAN WHO IS A

GOOD DAD, A GOOD FATHER, A

GOOD PROVIDER, THOSE ALL

ARE CHECK LISTS THAT GO

OFF IN A WIFE'S MIND.

Pat: SO WASHING THE

DISHES OR VACUUMING THE

FLOOR IS A WAY OF SAYING I

LOVE YOU FOR WOMEN?

IT IS.

THEY JUST WANT TO KNOW

THAT YOU CARE.

WHEN THE MAN COMES HOME

AND THE FIRST THING HE

SAYS IS, HONEY, WHAT CAN I

DO TO HELP?

I ALWAYS SAID IF YOU'RE

THERE FOR THE LAUNCHING,

YOU NEED TO BE THERE FOR

THE LANDING AS WELL.

Pat: YOU TALK ABOUT

SPICE UP THEIR SEX LIFE --

WHAT DO THEY DO?

PEOPLE, WHEN THEY DON'T

HAVE SUCCESS, THEY DON'T

TALK.

THEY SHUT DOWN.

AND I THINK FOR THE WOMAN

WHO'S NOT HAPPY IN THEIR

SEX LIFE, I WOULD SAY

KIDNAP YOUR HUSBAND.

TAKE HIM ON AN OVERNIGHT.

PEOPLE SAY, WELL, LEMAN,

THAT COSTS MONEY.

I WOULD SAY GO DOWN TO

MOTEL 6, AND TOM BODETTE

WILL LEAVE A LIGHT ON FOR

YOU.

I DON'T KNOW OF A MAN WHO

WOULDN'T LIKE TO GET AN

E-MAIL THAT SAYS, THE KIDS

ARE AT GRANDMA'S HOUSE,

AND I'VE GOT A TREAT FOR

YOU.

I WROTE THIS BOOK "HAVE A

GOOD SEX LIFE BY "FRIDAY

NIGHT FENWAYFRIDAY"SO PEOPLE HAVE HOPE.

PEOPLE WHO ORDER THIS BOOK

WILL GET A LINK AND THEY

WILL SEE THAT 45-MINUTE

TALK THAT I GAVE IN THAT

CHURCH THAT IS DOWNRIGHT

BOLD.

I HOPE PEOPLE WILL TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF IT.

SO IF YOU GO TO

haveanewsexlifebyFriday.co

m LOOK FOR THE LINK.

Pat: WE TALK ABOUT

LOW TESTOSTERONE AND THEIR

DESIRE DIMINISHES AND THEY

WON'T BE THINKING OF SEX

ALL OF THE TIME.

I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE

THERE ARE PHYSICAL THINGS

THAT TAKE TOLL ON A SEX

LIFE.

I SAY LET YOUR FINGERS DO

THE WALKING THROUGH THE

YELLOW PAGES.

THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO

PHYSICALLY GIVE PLEASURE

TO EACH OTHER AS HUSBAND

AND WIFE.

AGAIN, I THINK IT IS THE

NON-SEXUAL THINGS, QUITE

FRANKLY, THAT REALLY TURN

ON A COUPLE.

AND WE'RE REMINDED,

ST. PAUL WAS SO PROFOUND.

HE SAYS, HONOR CHRIST BY

BEING SUBMISSIVE TO ONE

ANOTHER.

I TALKED TO 10,000 WOMEN

IN LAS VEGAS, AND I STOOD

UP THERE AND I SAID, MY

TOPIC TONIGHT, LADIES, IS

HOW TO BE A SUBMISSIVE

WOMAN.

WELL, IF LOOKS WOULD KILL,

I'M A DEAD MAN.

I JUST DID THAT TO SORT OF

PULL THEIR CHAIN.

BUT THE REALITY IS,

SUBMISSIVE -- EVEN THOUGH

IT IS A BAD WORD IN OUR

SOCIETY TODAY -- IS REALLY

A WONDERFUL WORD THAT

EVERYBODY NEEDS TO

UNDERSTAND.

YOU NEED TO BE SUBMISSIVE

TO GOD.

AND YOU NEED TO BE

SUBMISSIVE TO A WOMAN IN

THE SENSE YOU'VE GOT TO

KNOW WHAT TURNS HER ON O.

ION.

IF I ASKED MY WIFE, WOULD

YOU LIKE A BACK RUB, SHE

WOULD SAY NO.

IF I SAID, WOULD YOU LIKE

YOUR BACK SCRATCHED, SHE

WOULD SAY SCRATCH ME, I

LOVE IT.

GET BEHIND HER EYES AND

LOVE HER FULLY,

PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY,

AND SPIRITUALLY.

Pat: MEL BIB BI MEL GIBSON DID A

MOVIE, "WHAT WOMEN WANT."

DID YOU SEE THAT?

I DIDN'T.

Pat: HE HAD A GIFT OF

HEARING THE UNSPOKEN WORDS

OF THE WOMEN, AND SUDDENLY

HE BECAME A SUCCESS IN

LIFE.

YOU OUGHT TO GET A COPY OF

IT.

THE HUSBAND WHO SAYS TO

HIS WIFE, HEY, HONEY, WHAT

DO YOU NEED ME TO DO, OR

THE WOMAN SAYS, WHAT DO

YOU THINK I SHOULD DO -- I

SPEAK TO C.E.O. GROUPS ALL

OF THE TIME, ALWAYS

TELLING THESE HIGH-POWERED

BUSINESSMEN, BEFORE YOU

MAKE THAT HUGE DECISION,

RUN IT BY YOUR WIFE FIRST.

THEY'RE THE GENIUSES

BEHIND THE SCENE.

Pat: I'VE LEARNED

THAT.

I'VE BEEN MARRIED FOR 62

YEARS.

I'VE LEARNED A FEW THINGS

OVER THE YEARS.

I'VE GOT 10

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN AND SO

FORTH.

THE SECRET IS, WHAT WOULD

YOU LIKE, DEAR?

WHAT WILL PLEASE YOU,

DEAR?

ABSOLUTELY.

YOU MAKE LOVE TO YOUR WIFE

WITHOUT EVER SETTING FOOT

IN THE BEDROOM.

THAT'S A GOOD WAY TO SAY

IT.

IF I TAKE MY WIFE OUT TO

DINNER, WHAT I LOVE TO DO

IS GO TO THAT RESTAURANT

IN THE AFTERNOON AND GIVE

A LITTLE GIFT TO THE

WAITER.

AND I SAY, I WOULD LIKE

YOU TO BRING THIS OUT WITH

OUR SALAD, THIS AT OUR

MAIN COURSE AND THIS AT

DESERT.

THEY'RE LITTLE THINGS, AND

SOMETIMES THEY COST UNDER

$10.

IT IS LITTLE WAYS OF

SAYING, I VALUE YOU FOR

WHO YOU ARE AS A PERSON.

THAT OPENS UP ALL OF THESE

FEELINGS OF WANTING TO BE

CLOSE AND INTIMATE.

IF NOT, IT SHUTS DOWN AND

EVERYBODY PAYS FOR IT.

Pat: IT'S A GREAT

BOOK.

"HAVE A NEW SEX LIFE BY

FRIDAY."

THAT DOESN'T MEAN DUMP

YOUR HUSBAND AND GET A NEW

ONE, OR DUMP YOUR WIFE.

[LAUGHTER]

I'M MAKING YOU LAUGH

TOO MUCH, PAT.

Pat: THE FIRST GUEST

I'VE HAD WEARING SHORTS IN

ALL OF THE TIME I'VE DONE

THIS SHOW.

THE FIRST TIME.

I'M SO IMPRESSED.

ALL RIGHT, KEVIN, GOD

BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

WHERE DO YOU GET THIS

BOOK, ANYWHERE?

ANYWHERE.

YOU CAN GET IT ONLINE.

Pat: AND HE'LL ALSO

GIVE US A COPY OF THE

MESSAGE AT SADDLEBACK

CHURCH.

> WENDY, YOU'RE A SINGLE

LADY, DOES THIS HELP YOU

AT ALL?

Wendy: I'VE

DEFINITELY GOING TO READ

IT BECAUSE I WANT TO BE

PREPARED.

THAT WAS ONE HOT

INTERVIEW.

> COMING UP LATER, THE

HEARTBREAK KID HIMSELF,

WRESTLING LEGEND SEAN

MICHAELS, TALKS ABOUT LIFE

OUTSIDE THE RING AND HIS

FILM DEBUT.

FRAIRM Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB".

THE EUROPEAN HUMAN RIGHTS

COURT HAS RULED MUSLIM

GIRLS MUST TAKE PART IN

SCHOOL SWIMMING CLASSES

WITH BOYS IN SWITZERLAND.

THE COURT REJECTED AN

APPEAL BY THE PARENTS WHO

TRIED TO KEEP THEIR

DAUGHTERS OUT OF A MIXED

GENDER SWIM CLASS BECAUSE

OF THEIR MUSLIM FAITH.

THE JUDGES ADMITTED

INTERFERENCE WITH FREEDOM

FROM RELIGION, BUT SAYS

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL HAS A

SPECIAL ROLE IN

INTEGRATION, PARTICULARLY

FOR CHILDREN OF FOREIGN

ORIGIN.

> EARTH HAS ONCE AGAIN

DODGED A BULLET FROM

SPACE.

AN ASTEROID THROUGH BY OUR

PLANET THIS WEEK.

THE SPACE ROCK HAD NOT

BEEN DETECTED UNTIL JUST

TWO DAYS BEFORE IT CAME

CLOSE TO EARTH ON MONDAY.

IT WAS AROUND 36 FEET AND

111 FEET WIDE.

NOT HUGE, BUT ENOUGH TO DO

SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE IF IT

HIT A HEAVILY POPULATED

AREA LIKE A MAJOR CITY.

> REMEMBER, YOU CAN

ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE.

IT IS cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELL, YOU

COULD CALL SEAN MICHAELS A

MODERN DAY GLADIATOR.

HIS JOB WAS TO KNOCK OUT

THE OTHER DIE AND PU GUY AND PUT ON A

SHOW ALONG THE WAY.

HE WAS INVOLVED IN THE

MATCH OF THE YEAR 11

TIMES.

NOW HE HAS STEPPED AWAY

FROM THE WRESTLING CIRCLE,

BUT HIS SHOW STILL VERY

MUCH ALIVE.

Reporter: SEAN

MICHAELS EMERGED IN THE

1990s AS AN

INTERNATIONAL WRESTLING

STAR.

HIS SKILLS SOLIDIFIED HIM

AT ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR

WRESTLERS OF ALL TIME.

NOW A CHRISTIAN, SEAN IS

OPEN ABOUT HIS FAITH AND

STARS AS DOUG IN THE NEW

FILM "THE RESURRECTION OF

GAVIN STONE."

THE MOVIE HITS THEATERS

JANUARY 20th.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB"

SAUSEAN MICHAELS.

NICE TO MEET YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Wendy: I SEE YOU WEAR

A HAT BECAUSE IT IS SO

COLD.

IT IS SO COLD HERE.

IT IS HALF ME AND HALF MY

CHARACTER.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHO I AM

HALF THE TIME.

Wendy: YOU WERE ONCE

THE MOST POPULAR WRESTLER

ON THE PLANET.

WHAT WAS LIFE LIKE FOR

SEAN MICHAELS AT THAT

POINT?

I DON'T KNOW, THAT

MIGHT BE A STRETCH.

I WILL ADMIT EARLY ON,

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, YOU

WANT IT.

BUT I DIDN'T HANDLE IT

VERY WELL.

I REALLY DIDN'T.

IT WAS -- IT'S THE PHRASE

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH

FOR.

I DID NOT HOLD UP REAL

WELL.

I PUT A LOT OF PRESSURE ON

MYSELF.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, THAT

CAUSED ME TO GET INTO A

LOT OF TROUBLE.

Wendy: WHAT KIND OF

TROUBLE?

WELL, GOSH, I WAS

DIFFICULT PROFESSIONALLY

TO DEAL WITH, AND

OBVIOUSLY PERSONALLY.

YOU GET INTO DRINKING, GET

INTO DRUGS, GET INTO

WOMANIZING AND DO DOING ALL

SORTS OF STUFF --

Wendy: BUT YOU WERE

STILL ABLE TO KEEP IN

INCREDIBLE SHAPE AND KEEP

YOUR JOB.

JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE

GOOD AT IT, IT DOESN'T

MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE

PROBLEMS.

IT IS PRETTY EASY TO

CONVINCE YOURSELF IT IS

NOT REALLY A PROBLEM

BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT -- YOU

KNOW, YOU'RE NOT HOMELESS.

YOU'RE NOT LIVING ON THE

STREETS.

YOU'VE STILL GOT MONEY ON

THE BANK AND YOU LIVE IN A

BIG HOUSE AND HAVE NICE

CARS, HOW CAN THAT BE A

BAD THING.

Wendy: THEY CALLED

YOU "THE HEARTBREAK KID."

HOW DID YOU GET THAT NAME?

A BUDDY OF MINE,

MR. PERFECT, CURT HENNIK,

IT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS

USED IN A CHRIS LADU SONG.

HE SAID IT TO ME ONE DAY,

AND WHEN I WENT TO MY

SINGLES CAREER, IT WAS

SOMETHING THAT SORT OF

NATURALLY FLOWED.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS

IF YOU SAY IT ENOUGH TIME,

IT BECOMES A REAL THING.

Wendy: OF COURSE.

SEAN, WHAT FINALLY BROKE

YOUR HEART?

WELL, IT WAS A

COMBINATION OF THE PRAYERS

OF MY WIFE THAT I, AGAIN,

MET HER AND EVERYTHING

HAPPENED VERY QUICKLY.

WE GOT MARRIED AND WE

STARTED A FAMILY.

AND, HONESTLY, I WAS

HOLDING THAT LITTLE BOY

AND REALIZING THAT THE

ONLY WAY THAT HE WAS GOING

TO BE ABLE TO TURN INTO A

DECENT MAN WAS BY SEEING

IT IN HIS DAD.

AND THEN IT STILL TOOK TWO

YEARS AFTER HOLDING HIM

FOR THAT TO HAPPEN, BUT IT

WAS A NIGHT WHERE I WAS

NOT IN GREAT SHAPE, AND I

COULD HEAR HIM SAY, DADDY

IS TIRED.

AND THAT'S THE DAY THAT IT

REALLY DAWNED ON ME THAT

HE IS BEGINNING TO SEE IT

NOW.

AND I CANNOT -- I CAN'T

RAISE MY BABY THIS WAY.

AND EVENTUALLY, YEARS

LATER I HAD A DAUGHTER.

BUT IT WAS THAT MOMENT,

THAT REALIZATION THAT --

Wendy: I'VE GOT TO

CHANGE.

YEAH.

AND I WENT INTO

CORNERSTONE CHURCH IN SAN

ANTONIO, AND I SAID, I

NEED A BIBLE STUDY OR

SOMETHING.

I KNEW WHAT I WAS LOOKING

FOR WAS IN THAT BIG

BUILDING.

Wendy: WOW.

YOU LITERALLY WENT IN

THERE ON YOUR OWN?

YEAH.

I WENT INTO THEIR OFFICE,

AND I WAS LOOKING SOMEWHAT

LIKE THIS, AND I THINK

THEY WERE AFRAID I WAS

GOING TO ROB THE PLACE.

AND I SAID, I NEED A BIBLE

STUDY.

THE GENTLEMAN INVITED ME.

AND I RECEIVED CHRIST AS

MY LORD AND SAVIOR, AND I

BALLED LIKE A BABY.

THEY DESIGNED ME.

I GOT INTO A GOOD GROUP.

I WENT TO MY BIBLE STUDY.

THEY WERE CONSTANTLY WITH

ME.

THEY HELPED ME.

BECAUSE THERE WAS SO MUCH

GOING ON SO FAST -- I WAS

RAISED CATHOLIC, SO I KNEW

CHURCH, SO TO SPEAK, BUT

THE FIRST TIME I WALKED

INTO A CHRISTIAN CHURCH, I

WAS, LIKE, OH, MY

GOODNESS.

IT FREAKED ME OUT.

Wendy: I WAS THE SAME

WAY.

I ACTUALLY FELT

ELECTRICITY IN THE AIR.

AFTER YOU'VE BEEN IN DEAD

CHURCHES MOST OF YOUR LIFE

AND YOU COME INTO WHERE

ABLE IS RAISING THEIR

HANDS --

IT SCARES YOU AT FIRST.

AND NOW I'M LIKE THAT.

Wendy: YOU'VE BEEN

OUT OF PROFESSIONAL

WRESTLING FOR HOW MANY

YEARS?

I RETIRED IN 2010.

I STILL GO BACK EVERY NOW

AND THEN TO YELL AT

SOMEBODY OR GET YELLED AT.

Wendy: YOU'VE GOT TO.

YOU'RE DOING A FEATURE

FILM, CALLED "THE

RESURRECTION OF GAVIN

STONE."

I WATCHED IT.

IT IS AN AMAZING -- I

CRIED SO MUCH AT THE END.

IT IS A GREAT MOVIE, YOU

LAUGH AND YOU CRY.

YOU PLAY -- FIRST OF ALL,

WHAT IS THE MOVIE ABOUT?

IT IS ABOUT A FORMER

CHILD STAR, BRETT DALTON.

AND HE DID A PHENOMENAL

JOB AT BRETT DALTON.

HE WAS SO MUCH HELP.

I WAS VERY HONEST AND I

SAID, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

I'M DOING.

BUT EVERYBODY -- THE

DIRECTOR -- EVERYBODY WAS

SPECTACULAR.

IT IS ABOUT A FORMER

WASHED-UP CHILD STAR, AND

HE GETS IN TROUBLE AGAIN.

AND SORT OF TRYING TO GET

OUT OF DOING HIS SERVICE,

HE'S LIKE, I'LL DO

COMMUNITY SERVICE, I CAN

DO IT IN THE CHURCH.

AND THEN WHILE HE IS IN

THE CHURCH, HE TAKES A

STEP FARTHER, AND HE IS

TRYING TO GET OUT OF DOING

HIS WORK AT THE CHURCH BY

PRETENDING TO BE A

CHRISTIAN, AND HE SEES

THEY'RE PUTTING ON AN

EASTER PAGEANT, AND HE

WAS, LIKE, I'LL HELP YOU

GUYS DO THAT.

IT IS SOMEBODY TO COMES

FROM THE OUTSIDE, TRYING

TO USE THE CHURCH AS A

PLOY TO GET BY WITH

SOMETHING, BUT THEN THE

PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH HAVE

AN AFFECT ON HIM.

Wendy: YOU'RE ROLE IS

A LITTLE SMALLER, BUT YOU

PLAY AN EX-CON WHO IS A

BORNBORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN, AND

YOU'RE A FRIEND TO HIM?

I PLAYDOUGH PLAY DOUG, AND HE IS

AN EX-BIKER, AN EX-CON.

Wendy: DID YOU LIKE

ACTING?

I ACTED A LITTLE IN

WRESTLING, BUT THIS WAS

MUCH MORE CHALLENGING.

IT IS A GREAT FILM.

IT IS THEATE THEATERS ON

JANUARY 20th.

Wendy: WHERE CAN WE

SEE IT?

IT OPENS IN THEATERS

JANUARY 20th, NEXT

FRIDAY.

IT GOT A PRETTY DECENT

RELEASE.

I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT.

Wendy: I WISH WE HAD

MORE TIME.

IT IS GREAT TO SEE YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Wendy:

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR

ACTING DEBUT.

YOU CAN HEAR MORE FROM

SEAN MICHAELS IN OUR

EXCLUSIVE Facebook

INTERVIEW.

JUST GO TO

Facebook.com/700club.

Pat: COMING UP, WE'LL

TACKLE QUESTIONS FROM YOUR

E-MAIL.

ONE VIEWER SAYS, "IF

SOMEONE LIES UNDER OATH

AND GETS OFF, IS THERE A

PENALTY TO PAY IN THE HERE

AFTER?"

THAT'S AN INTERESTING

QUESTION, AND WE'LL DO OUR

BEST TO ANSWER IT AS WE

HAVE ANOTHER ROUND OF

"BRING IT ON."

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

WE'RE GOING TO JUMP INTO

SOME "BRING IT ON" VIEWER

QUESTIONS.

THIS ONE FROM A VIEWER

SAYING, "IF SOMEONE LIES

UNDER OATH AND GETS OFF,

IS THERE A PENALTY TO PAY

IN THE HERE AFTER, EVEN IF

THEY CONFESSED TO GOD THAT

THEY DID IT?

OR DO THEY GET OFF

SCOT-FREE IN HEAVEN, TOO?"

Pat: IT'S SCOT-FREE

TO ALL OF US, FOLKS, IF

YOU CONFESS TO THE LORD

AND YOU'RE FORGIVEN.

BUT, FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU

KILL SOMEBODY IN

PRE-MEDITATED MURDER, YOU

CAN ASK GOD TO FORGIVE YOU

AND HE'LL FORGIVE, BUT IT

DOESN'T MEAN YOU'LL GET

OFF HERE.

AND THEY MAY HAVE YOU

EXECUTED.

SO THAT'S THE WAY IT

WORKS.

IF SOMEBODY LIES UNDER

OATH, AND YOU SAY IS THERE

A PENALTY IN THE HERE

AFTER?

NO, GOD DOESN'T WORK THAT

WAY.

Wendy: "ARE

GENERATIONAL CURSES ARE

APPLICABLE WHEN WON HAS

BEEN BORN AGAIN.

THERE IS A CURSE ON OUR

FAMILY BECAUSE MY MOM AND

DAD HAD US BEFORE MARRIAGE

AND WHILE MY DAD WAS STILL

MARRIED TO ANOTHER WOMAN.

THE FIRST WIFE CURSED US

WHEN SHE CONFRONTED MY DAD

ABOUT LEAVING HER.

I AM A SISTER OF FOUR, AND

ALL OF US ARE NOT MARRIED,

NO CHILDREN, AND THE NOT

EVEN DATING.

IS THIS ALL DUE TO A CURSE

MY FIRST WIFE SPOKE OVER

MY FAMILY?"

Pat: I HAVE NO IDEA.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOUR

ATTRACTIVE FOR SPOUSES OR

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE

DOING.

Wendy: YOU NEED TO

GET KEVIN'S BOOK.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS A

CURSE CAUSE DOES NOT LIE.

SO IF SOMEBODY TRIES TO

CURSE YOU AND IT HAS NO

SUBSTANCE, IT WON'T LIE ON

YOU.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOUR

FATHER DID SOME BAD STUFF,

AND SO IT COULD BE THERE

IS A CURSE.

YOU NEED TO REBUKE THAT.

THOSE CURSES CAN BE BROKEN

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

YOU HAVE TO SPEAK THE WORD

AND DO IT.

I DON'T KNOW ALL OF THE

CIRCUMSTANCES, SO I CAN'T

TELL YOU SPECIFICALLY.

I WOULD SAY SPEAK THE WORD

OF FAITH IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

ALL RIGHT.

Wendy: AMEN.

> GIANA SAYS, "HI, PAT.

MY DAD IS A FANATICAL

CHRISTIAN AND SUFFERS FROM

MENTAL ILLNESS.

HE IS SO CONTROLLING AND

HARD TO DEAL WITH.

IT IS EITHER HIS WAY OR

THE HIGHWAY.

MY MOM DOES EVERYTHING.

SHE SAYS HE WOULD HAVE

KICKED HIM OUT ALREADY,

BUT HE HASN'T HAD A JOB IN

FOUR YEARS AND HE IS

BROKE.

HE ALWAYS USES THE BIBLE

TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR

HIMSELF, AND DEMANDS

RESPECT WHEN HE DOESN'T

GIVE ANY TO US.

WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THIS?"

Pat: HERE IS THE

DEAL: GIVE WEIGHT TO YOUR

FATHER AND MOTHER.

THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

THAT'S THE COMMANDMENT.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOUR

FATHER LOOKS LIKE A BUM.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS IF ANY

MAN WILL NOT WORK, LET HIM

NOT EAT.

SO HE IS NOT LOOKING AFTER

THE FAMILY.

HE IS SHIFTLESS AND RUNS

AROUND.

HE NEEDS SOME HELP.

AND I THINK THE IDEA OF

ASKING FOR AN INTERVENTION

IS VERY APPROPRIATE.

YOU COULD ASK FOR A

PASTOR, OR MAYBE SOME

ELDERS IN THE CHURCH OR

SOMETHING, TO DEAL WITH

THAT MAN.

IF HE WON'T SHAPE UP, YOUR

MOTHER HAS PERFECT GROUNDS

TO LEAVE HIM.

AND, YOU KNOW, HE IS

SOMETHING BUT TROUBLE.

GOD IS THE GOD OF

RESTORATION.

IN THAT CASE, THERE IS A

RESTORATION.

SO THAT'S WHAT YOU PRAY

FOR.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

LAMENTATIONS: "THROUGH THE

LORD'S MERCIES WE'RE NOT

CONSUMED BECAUSE HIS

COMPASSIONS FAIL NOT.

THEY ARE NEW EVERY

MORNING.

GREAT IS YOUR

FAITHFULNESS."

> WELL, TOMORROW ONE MAN

BRINGS JOY TO THE WORLD'S

MOST UNHAPPYIEST COUNTRY.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, AND

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
