The 700 Club - February 7, 2017

Author Wendy Baisley Roache remains unbroken after a devastating family tragedy. Plus, Brian grew up in a dysfunctional home that he couldn’t escape. See how he broke the cycle once and for all. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING UP...HE

WAS ONE OF THE YOUNGEST

STAFFERS IN OBAMA'S WHITE

HOUSE.

SOMEONE HAS TO DEAL

WITH THAT, AND YOU'RE

LOOKING AT HIM.

Wendy: AND IT WAS HIS

JOB TO REACH OUT TO

EVANGELICALS.

IT IS NOT THE ONE AREA

OF LIFE THAT CAN'T BE

AFFECTED BY THE KINGDOM OF

GOD.

Wendy: HEAR HIS

STORIES FROM THE INSIDE

AND HOW HE PLANS TO

RECLAIM HOPE.

> THEN...

A LOT OF PARTYING.

Wendy: ...INSIDE A

DYSFUNCTIONAL HOME, ONE HE

COULDN'T ESCAPE.

HOW HE BROKE THE CYCLE

ONCE AND FOR ALL.

GOD CAN CHANGE OUR

STORY.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, IT IS GOOD TO

HAVE YOU WITH US ON "THE

700 CLUB."

WE'VE BEEN SEEING THIS

DRAMA PLAYING OUT, AND IT

TURNS OUT SOME OF THESE

PASSIONATE DEMONSTRATORS

WERE ACTUALLY ON THE

PAYROLL IN NOVEMBER.

THEY WERE HIRED IN

NOVEMBER.

NOVEMBER, DECEMBER,

JANUARY, FEBRUARY, AND

THEY WERE SITTING BY,

TAKING A PAYCHECK WAITING

TO DEMONSTRATE BECAUSE

THEY WERE HIRED BY GEORGE

SORUS OR SOMEBODY LIKE

HIM, TO PROTEST WHATEVER

PRESIDENT TRUMP DID.

SO MOST OF THESE

DEMONSTRATIONS ARE NOTHING

BUT PHONY.

NOW WE'VE GOT A SIMILAR

PHONY CASE COMING UP

BEFORE THE NINTH CIRCUIT.

THE NINTH CIRCUIT -- HERE

IS THE DEAL: THE SENATORS

GET TO PICK THE JUDGES.

BUT WHO ARE THE SENATORS?

THEY'RE LIBERALS FROM

CALIFORNIA, THEY'RE

LIBERALS FROM WASHINGTON

STATE, THEY'RE LIBERALS

FROM OREGON.

SO YOU'VE GOT THE NINTH

CIRCUIT LOADED WITH

LIBERALS WHO WILL TRY TO

DO SOMETHING FUNNY ON

THIS.

BUT ALL THE WAY DOWN THE

LINE, YOU'VE GOT SPEECHES

BY OBAMA, YOU HAVE

SPEECHES BY BUSH, YOU'VE

GOT SPEECHES BY VARIOUS

ONES, CARTER, ETC., WHO

MAKE IT CLEAR THEIR VIEW

OF IMMIGRANTS.

AND THE TRUTH IS THE

GOVERNMENT HAS THE

ABSOLUTE RIGHT, CERTAINLY

THE PRESIDENT, TO KEEP

DANGEROUS PEOPLE FROM

COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY.

THERE IS NO CIVIL RIGHT TO

HAVE AN ALIEN FROM YEMEN

COME TO AMERICA.

AND THE PRESIDENT IS THE

ONLY PERSON WHO GETS

CONTROL OF THAT.

THAT'S THE EXECUTIVE

POWER.

SO THIS THING, THEY'LL

ARGUE BACK AND FORTH.

AND WHEN YOU SEE THE

ARGUMENTS AND THE JUDGES'

DECISIONS, THERE IS

NOTHING ABOUT LAW IN IT.

IT IS ALL THIS IS

INCONVENIENT.

THAT IS NOT THE WAY A

JUDGE IS SUPPOSED TO

DETERMINE IT.

IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE WHAT

DOES THE CONSTITUTION SAY?

WHAT DO THE STATUE STATUTES SAY?

THEY'RE NOT DOING THAT.

THE NINTH CIRCUIT WILL

PROBABLY RULE AGAINST THE

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, WHICH

MEANS THEY CAN TAKE IT

IMMEDIATELY TO THE SUPREME

COURT.

Terry: BACK IN

WASHINGTON, REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS ARE PUSHING TO

MOVE AHEAD WITH THE REPEAL

OF OBAMACARE.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: THE LEGAL

BATTLE OVER THE ORDER NOW

IN THE HANDS OF THE NINTH

CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS

AFTER A JUDGE IN

WASHINGTON STATE HALTED

THE POLICY.

President Trump: WE

NEED STRONG PROGRAMS SO

THAT PEOPLE THAT LOVE US

AND WANT TO LOVE OUR

COUNTRY AND WILL END UP

LOVING OUR COUNTRY ARE

ALLOWED IN, NOT PEOPLE

THAT WANT TO DESTROY US

AND DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.

Charlene: WITH THE

BAN IN LEGAL LIMBO,

TRAVELLERS FROM THOSE

SEVEN MUSLIM-MAJORITY

COUNTRIES WITH TIES TO

TERRORISM ARE NOW RUSHING

TO THE U.S., REUNITING

WITH FAMILIES.

I'M OVERWHELMED.

I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN IT.

I AM SO GRATEFUL TO

EVERYONE THAT HELPED IN

THIS.

Charlene: POLLS SHOW

THE PUBLIC SUPPORTS THE

PRESIDENT'S ACTION, AND

REGARDLESS OF THE RULING

FROM THE NINTH CIRCUIT,

THE ORDER IS LIKELY HEADED

FOR A POSSIBLE FINAL

FACEOFF AT THE SUPREME

COURT.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

FILED A DEFENSE OF THE BAN

WITH LAWYERS SAYING THAT

THE TRAVEL BAN WAS A

LAWFUL EXERCISE OF THE

PRESIDENT'S AUTHORITY TO

PROTECT NATIONAL SECURITY

AND SAID A JUDGE'S ORDER

THAT PUT THE POLICY ON

HOLD SHOULD BE OVERTURNED.

MEANWHILE, THERE ARE

GROWING CONCERNS ABOUT

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

OVER REPEALING OBAMACARE.

CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS

ARE WORRIED ABOUT A

GROWING NUMBER WITHIN THE

PARTY WHO ARE PUSHING FOR

A SLOWER PACE OF UNDOING

THE HEALTH CARE LAW.

AND THEY'RE CONCERNED IT

COULD GET EVEN HARDER AS

NEXT YEAR'S CONGRESSIONAL

ELECTIONS GET CLOSER.

SOME MORE MODERATE

REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE

WANT A REPLACEMENT READY

FOR OBAMACARE BEFORE A

VOTE TO OVER TURN IT.

I THINK THE LONGER THIS

DRAGS ON, THE MORE PEOPLE

ARE STARTING TO UNDERSTAND

THE CHANCE OF A REPEAL IS

SLIPPING AWAY.

DAN HOLLER, VICE PRESIDENT

OF COMMUNICATIONS AND

GOVERNMENT RELATIONS FOR

HERITAGE ACTION TOLD THE

WALL STREET JOURNAL.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THE

PROCESS TO FINALLY REPEAL

OBAMACARE MAY TAKE UNTIL

NEXT YEAR.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, IT SEEMS

LIKE TO ME THAT THE

PRESIDENT HAS GOT TO GET

WITH IT AND CONGRESS HAS

GOT TO GET WITH IT.

THEY'VE GOT TO PASS TAX

REFORM.

THEY DON'T NECESSARILY

HAVE TO HAVE A

COMPREHENSIVE TAX BILL,

BUT THEY CAN CHANGE THE

RATES, CERTAINLY THE SMALL

BUSINESS RATES.

THE CHAIRMAN OF THE WAYS

AND MEANS COMMITTEE HAS

GOT THE PROGRAM RIGHT

THERE.

ALL HE HAS TO DO IS SAY,

OKAY, YES, VOTE IT IN AND

GET IT FAST.

THE PRESIDENT NEEDS TO DO

THAT, OTHERWISE HE WILL BE

SIDE TRACKED ON THESE

RABBIT TRAILS OFTEN AND

MISS THE BIG OPPORTUNITY.

THE SAME THING WITH

OBAMACARE.

THEY'VE GOT TO REPEAL IT.

THEY JUST HAVE TO DO IT

AND DO IT FAST.

> IN OTHER NEWS,

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

PROMISING TO REBUILD THE

MILITARY AND DEFEAT ISIS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: THANKS, PAT.

THE PRESIDENT MADE THOSE

PROMISES WHILE AT CENTRAL

COMMAND IN TAMPA, FLORIDA,

SAYING, "WE WON'T ALLOW

ISIS TO TAKE ROOT IN HIS

COUNTRY."

TRUMP'S APPROACH TO

DEFEATING RADICAL

TERRORISM IS VERY

DIFFERENT FROM PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S.

GEORGE THOMAS LOOKS AT THE

CONTRAST.

George: 16 YEARS

AFTER FORMER PRESIDENT

GEORGE BUSH MADE THIS

PLEDGE --

OUR WAR ON TERROR

BEGINS IN al-QAEDA, BUT

IT DOES NOT END THERE.

IT WILL NOT END UNTIL

EVERY TERRORIST GROUP OF

GLOBAL REACH HAS BEEN

FOUND, STOPPED, AND

DEFEATED.

George: AMERICA'S WAR

ON TERROR CONTINUES.

IT IS THE MOST

COMPLICATED THREAT

ENVIRONMENT THAT THE

UNITED STATES HAS SEEN IN

RECENT MEMORY.

George: FROM THE

DESERT SANDS OF THE MIDDLE

EAST TO THE SHORES OF

AFRICA, TO ASIA, TO HERE

AT HOME, A NEW STUDY SHOWS

THE U.S. HAS ALREADY SPENT

NEARLY $5 TRILLION TRYING

TO DEFEAT TERRORISM.

AS A NATION, WE ARE

REMINDED ALMOST DAILY THAT

THE THREATS TO OUR

HOMELAND HAVE NOT RECEDED

IN ANY WAY.

THE CHALLENGES TO OUR WAY

OF LIFE HAVE NOT

DIMINISHED.

George: TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF TERRORISTS

HAVE BEEN KILLED IN SYRIA

AND IRAQ ALONE.

THE U.S. MILITARY

ESTIMATES THAT SOME 50,000

ISIS FIGHTERS HAVE BEEN

ELIMINATED, AND YET...

ISIS REMAINS A

RESILIENT MOVEMENT THAT

CONTROLS MAJOR URBAN

CENTERS THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST.

WE MUST ENSURE THEY CANNOT

EXPAND THEIR REACH.

George: TO DO

OTHERWISE, SAYS THE NEW

HEAD OF THE DEFENSE

DEPARTMENT, WILL HAVE

DEADLY CONSEQUENCES.

INCREASINGLY, WE SEE

ISLANDS OF STABILITY IN

OUR HEMISPHERE.

DEMOCRACIES HERE IN

EUROPEAN AND ASIA, UNDER

ATTACK AND NATIONS THAT

MISTAKENLY SE SEE THEIR

SECURITY IN THE INSECURITY

OF OTHERS.

George: SOME ARE

LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING

WITH A NEW ADMINISTRATION

THAT ISN'T RELUCTANT TO

CONFRONT THE ENEMY

HEAD-ON.

IF THERE IS ONE THING THE

KENYANS APPRECIATE ABOUT

DONALD TRUMP IS THAT HE IS

NOT AFRAID TO NAME THE

ENEMY.

AND SO FAR, BASED ON HIS

SELECTION FOR HIS NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR, THE

C.I.A. POSTA POST AND

ATTORNEY-GENERAL, ALL

THREE MEN HAVE CALLED IT

RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

MICHAEL FLYNN AND MICHAEL

LADIN ARE CO-AUTHORITIES

OF "THE FIELD OF FIGHT"

THEY SAY OBAMA'S

RELUCTANCE TO RECOGNIZE

THE ENEMY HAS MADE THE

U.S. INEFFECTIVE IN THE

FIGHT ON TERRORISM.

YOU CANNOT DEFEAT AN

ENEMY YOU CANNOT DESCRIBE

OR DEFINE.

IT MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR

US TO DESIGN THE STRATEGY

THAT WOULD ULTIMATELY

DEFEAT IT.

George: TRUMP HAS

SAID NUMEROUS TIMES THAT

HE WILL TAKE THE FIGHT TO

RADICAL MUSLIMS.

President Trump: WE

WILL DEFEAT RADICAL

ISLAMIC TERRORISM, JUST AS

WE HAVE DEFEATED EVERY

THREAT WE FACED AT EVERY

AGE AND BEFORE.

George: FLYNN AND

LADIN ARGUE THAT TRUMP

MUST, AMONG OTHER THINGS,

MUST TAKE ON THE IDEOLOGY

OF RADICAL ISLAM IF WE ARE

TO EVER WIN THIS WAR ON

TERROR.

WE HAVE TO GO AFTER

THEM IDEOLOGICALLY, WE

HAVE TO GO AFTER THEM

MILITARILY, WE HAVE TO

DESTROY THEIR ARMIES AND

WE HAVE TO HUMILIATE THEM

IN FRONT OF THEIR OWN

PEOPLE.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

John: PAT, A NEW

ADMINISTRATION AND A

DIFFERENT APPROACH TO

FIGHTING TERRORISM.

Pat: THANK THE LORD.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

TOOK A THOUSAND PAGES OUT

OF THE F.B.I. MANUAL THAT

DEALT WITH ANYTHING HAVING

TO DO WITH RADICAL ISLAM.

THEY E EXPUNGED.

OBAMA WOULD NEVER SAY

RADICAL ISLAM.

AND THAT'S WHO WE ARE

FIGHTING.

TRUMP HAS GIVEN HIS PEOPLE

30 DAYS TO GET A STRATEGY.

AND WHAT THEY'VE GOT TO DO

IS GO INTO RAFAH AND SYRIA

AND LITERALLY DESTROY

THAT.

AND WHAT LADIN SAID THERE

IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

THEY'VE GOT TO KILL THEM

AND DO IT PUBLICLY SO

EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THING

HAS BEEN DESTROYED.

BECAUSE IN THE MUSLIM

WORLD, THERE IS AN

ADMIRATION FOR FORCE AND

AN ADMIRATION FOR THOSE

WHO WIN, AND A SCORN FOR

THOSE WHO DON'T.

AND WE'VE GOT TO WIN.

OF COURSE, WE ALSO NEED TO

GET A REPLACEMENT

IDEOLOGY.

THE RADICAL ISLAMIC

PHILOSOPHY IS VERY BRUTAL.

SOME OF THE MODERN MUSLIMS

SAY WE DON'T BELIEVE IN

ALL OF THAT -- WELL,

THAT'S THEIR BUSINESS.

BUT WE'VE GOT TO LAY IT ON

THE LINE.

BUT IT IS TIME WE GO AFTER

THEM.

ONE OF THE PLACES THERE IS

A STRUGGLE GOING ON RIGHT

NOW IS IN MOSUL.

JOHN?

John: IRAQI FORCES

ARE FIGHTING TO TAKE ISIS

OUT OF THE CITY OF MOSUL.

BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY

BATTLE IN THE REGION.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

IT IS MORE THAN A MILITARY

CAMPAIGN.

THERE IS ALSO A SPIRITUAL

FIGHT OVER THE FATE OF THE

MIDDLE EAST.

Chris: OFFICIALS

EXPECT IT COULD TAKE

MONTHS TO LIBERATE THE

IRAQI CITY OF MOSUL FROM

THE GRIP OF ISIS.

WHILE THAT IS HAPPENING ON

THE GROUND, A DIFFERENT

CAMPAIGN IS TAKING ANOTHER

ROUTE.

A GROWING PRAYER MOVEMENT

IS SPREADING THROUGHOUT

THE MIDDLE EAST.

THESE HOUSES OF PRAYER ARE

PRAYING FOR GOD'S PLAN TO

BE FULFILLED IN PERHAPS

THE MOST VOLATILE REGION

ON EARTH.

WE'RE SEEING AN

INCREASE OF HOURS OF

PRAYER MEETINGS, BOTH FROM

BELIEVERS, LOCAL

BELIEVERS, AND ALSO PEOPLE

OUTSIDE PRAYING FOR THE

MIDDLE EAST AND COMING

HERE TO PRAY AS WELL.

Chris: THIS IS THE

HOUSE OF PRAYER IN

NORTHERN IRAQ, KNOWN IN

THE BIBLE AT ASSYRIA.

THE CO-FOUNDER SAYS

THEY'RE PRAYING FOR THE

FULFILLMENT O OF ISAIAH 19,

WHICH SAYS IN THAT DAY,

ISRAEL WILL BE ONE OF

THREE IN A ASSYRIA SEAR.

WHOM THE LORD OF HOSTS

WILL BLESS.

IN ORDER FOR THAT TO

HAPPEN IN ASSYRIA, TO BE A

BLESSING ON THE EARTH, WE

NEED TO BECOME A

HABITATION OF THE PRESENCE

OF GOD.

AND IN ORDER TO BE A

HABITATION FOR THE

PRESENCE OF GOD, GOD IS

BUILDING THE ALTER OF

PRAYER OF WORSHIP.

AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT

WE'RE SEEING IN THESE

PRAYER MEETINGS.

Chris: WITH SO MUCH

CARNAGE IN THE REGION,

THIS FULFILLMENT MIGHT

SEEM FAR-FETCHED.

BUT HE SAYS IT IS

IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHERE TO

LOOK.

WE ARE TO LOOK TO

JESUS.

WE ARE TO LOOK AT GOD'S

PROMISES AND HIS WORD SO

WE WILL BE INFLUENCED BY

HIM AND NOT BY WHAT

HAPPENS AROUND US IN THIS

WORLD.

WE EASILY GET INFLUENCED

BY DARKNESS AND WHAT

HAPPENS, AND IT AFFECTS

US.

BUT IF WE LOOK AT JESUS

AND LOOK AT HIS WORD, WE

SEE THAT GOD WANTS TO POUR

OUT HIS SPIRIT.

HE IS COMING BACK FOR A

BRIDE, AND HE WILL HAVE IT

EVEN HERE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

WE NEED TO SIMPLY LOOK TO

JESUS AND NOT BE

INFLUENCED BY BAD REPORTS.

THIS WAY IT STIRS OUR

HEARTS AND GIVES US HOPE

TO BELIEVE FOR MORE.

John: PAT, I

UNDERSTAND YOU'RE QUITE

FAMILIA WITH THAT PASSAGE

IN ISAIAH.

Pat: I AM INDEED.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

I SHARED IT ONCE WHEN I

WAS TALKING TO THE HEAD OF

ISRAEL.

I SHARED THAT BECAUSE ONE

DAY THAT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN.

BUT IN ORDER TO HAVE AN

ASSYRIA, YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO HAVE MODERN-DAY

IRAQ JOIN IN WITH CURRENT

SYRIA.

WELL SYRIA IS BREAKING ALL

TO PIECES.

IF IT IS ALIGNED IN A

SPIRITUAL WAY -- EGYPT, I

THINK, IS ONE THAT IS

WITHOUT QUESTION AVAILABLE

FOR A MODERATE APPROACH TO

LIFE.

AND THOSE EYPTIANS ARE NOT

IN THE RADICAL GROUP.

al-SISI IS A DIFFERENT

TYPE OF LEADER.

I'M OPTMISTIC.

AND, OF COURSE, ISRAEL IS

THERE.

SO THE THREE NATIONS --

ISAIAH 19, IT CAN COME TO

PASS AND IT WILL COME TO

PASS IN OUR LIFETIME.

TERRY?

Terry: THAT WOULD BE

SOMETHING TO SEE.

Pat: IT WOULD BE

MARVELOUS.

Terry: HE SERVED AS

OBAMA DIRECTOR, AND HE

WASN'T AFRAID TO CALL OUT

THE PRESIDENT.

THE INSPIRATIO ADMINISTRATION MADE

THE WRONG DECISION.

Terry: THAT WASN'T

THE ONLY TIME WHEN FAITH

TOOK A BACK SEAT TO

POLITICS.

LEARN MORE WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: MICHAEL WARE WAS

ONE OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

ADVISORS ON ISSUES OF

FAITH.

NOW HE IS TELLING THE

STORY OF WHAT IT WAS LIKE

TO REACH OUT TO BELIEVERS

AS OBAMA WAS WORKING TO

CHANGE THE CULTURE OF

AMERICA.

HE SAT DOWN TO TALK ABOUT

HIS NEW BOOK WHICH IS

CALLED "RECLAIMING HOPE,"

AND IT IS AVAILABLE WHERE

BOOKS ARE SOLD, SPECIAL

AMAZON AND OTHER PLACES.

Reporter: MICHAEL WAS

ONLY 19 WHEN HE SERVED AS

AN INTERN FOR PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA IN

2008.

IT WAS THE GREATEST

HONOR OF MY LIFE.

TO BE THERE, TO BE IN THE

THICK OF THINGS.

Reporter: LATER HE

WOULD WORK IN OBAMA'S

OFFICE OF FAITH-BASED

NEIGHBORHOOD PARTNERSHIP.

IT LED TO A WILD RIDE FOR

A CHRISTIAN LIKE WARE,

ESPECIALLY WORKING FOR A

PRESIDENT WHO'S MORAL AND

RELIGIOUS VIEWS EVOLVED

DRAMATICALLY THROUGHOUT

HIS TIME IN THE WHITE

HOUSE.

HE TALKS ABOUT THE LESSONS

HE LEARNED IN HIS NEW

BOOK, "RECLAIMING HOPE."

> THE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE, WHAT WAS THAT

CONVERSATION LIKE IN YOUR

OFFICE?

IT WAS LIKE THIS

LOOMING THING.

Reporter: AFTER

OBAMACARE BECAME LAW, THE

WHITE HOUSE FACED THE

DECISION OF WHETHER TO

ALLOW CHRISTIAN EMPLOYERS

AN SCRE EXEMPTION WHEN IT CAME

TO PROVIDING CONTRACEPTION

AND ABORTION-INDUCING

DRUGS.

IT WAS EXTREMELY TENSE.

IT WAS YEARS OF MY LIFE,

YEARS OF ADVOCATES' LIVES,

THAT WERE TRYING TO BE

EARNEST AND IN GOOD FAITH.

THE ADMINISTRATION MADE

THE WRONG DECISION RIGHT

OUT OF THE GATE.

AND YOU CAN TELL THAT THEY

MADE THE WRONG DECISION

BECAUSE THEY REVISED IT

OVER A DOZEN TIMES SINCE

THEY MADE IT.

TO ME, IT BECAME CLEAR

THAT A MORE AGGRESSIVE

APPROACH WAS TAKEN THAN

NECESSARY, AND THAT PART

OF THE REASON FOR THAT WAS

TO STOKE POLITICAL

CONFLICT.

Reporter: IN OTHER

WORDS, IT ALL CAME DOWN TO

POLITICS.

WARE SAYS OBAMA OPERATIVES

KNEW STOKING THIS

CONTROVERSY THAT MITT

ROMNEY WOULD CERTAINLY

OPPOSE, WOULD ALLOW THEM

TO FABRICATE A REPUBLICAN

WAR ON WOMEN, A WAR THAT

TOOK HOLD IN 2012

CAMPAIGN.

THINGS WERE NEVER THE SAME

BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND

RELIGIOUS LEADERS.

> A LOT OF EVANGELICAL

VOTERS VOTED FOR THE

PRESIDENT IN 2008,

THINKING HE SUPPORTED

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE AND

CIVIL UNION.

President Obama: I

BELIEVE THAT MARRIAGE IS

THE UNION BETWEEN A MAN

AND A WOMAN.

NOW, FOR ME AS A

CHRISTIAN --

[APPLAUSE]

President Obama: FOR

ME AS A CHRISTIAN -- FOR

ME AS A CHRISTIAN, IT IS

ALSO A SACRED UNION.

GOD IS IN THE MIX.

HE SAID THAT GOD WAS IN

THE MIX WHEN HE ANNOUNCED

HIS EVOLUTION.

HE BROUGHT UP THE GOLDEN

RULE, WHICH THE GOLDEN

RULE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A

LONG TIME.

SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT

CHANGED IN THE APPLICATION

OF THE GOLDEN RULE FROM

WHEN HE HAD ONE POSITION

IN 2008 TO WHEN HE, QUOTE,

UNQUOTE, EVOLVED IN 2012.

Reporter: LATER DAVID

AXELROD REVEALED IT WAS

ALL A CAMPAIGN CONCOCTION.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ALWAYS

SUPPORTED TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE, BUT KNEW IT

WOULD HINDER HIS WINNING

IN 2012.

Reporter: WAS THAT A

CONSTANT THORN IN YOUR

SIDE?

YEAH.

I HOPE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND

WHEN THEY'RE SENDING

AROUND THESE CHANGE

E-MAILS, THAT WILL ARE

MUSLIM PRAYERS ON THE

SOUTH LAWN -- SOMEBODY HAS

TO DEAL WITH THAT AND

YOU'RE LOOKING AT HIM.

BELIEVE ME, I WAS THERE

AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN THE

FIRST TO QUESTION IF THERE

WERE MUSLIM PRAYERS BEING

HELD ON THE SOUTH LAWN.

Reporter: WARE

REGRETS CHRISTIANS DIDN'T

DO MORE TO ENCOURAGE OBAMA

IN HIS FAITH.

MY SORT OF PROBLEM WAS

IT SEEMED THE STANDARD WAS

BEING APPLIED TO HIM THAT

FOLKS DON'T APPLY TO THE

PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN

CONGREGATION.

IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH

SOMEONE IN YOUR

CONGREGATION ON A

POLITICAL ISSUE, OR IF YOU

DON'T THINK THEY'RE DOING

THINGS EXACTLY RIGHT, YOU

DON'T KICK THEM OUT OF

CHURCH.

YOU TRY TO BUILD THEM UP

IN THEIR FAITH.

Reporter: SO HOW DOES

AMERICA RECLAIM HOPE?

YOU CAN HAVE ALL KINDS

OF THINGS TO HOPE FOR, BUT

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE

TO THINK ABOUT WHERE THEIR

HOPE IS PLACED WHEN

EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS

SHORT.

WHAT CAN THEY COUNT ON?

FOR ME, THAT HAS BEEN

JESUS.

WHEN YOUR HOPE IS IN SOLID

GROUND, THEN ALL KINDS OF

POSSIBILITIES OPEN UP.

POLITICS IS NOT THE ONE

AREA OF LIFE THAT CAN'T BE

AFFECTED BY THE KINGDOM OF

GOD.

JUST IMAGINE IF WE HAD A

COUNTRY FULL OF PEOPLE WHO

WERE GROUNDN GROUNDED IN THE HOPE

OF CHRIST, AND THAT THAT

HOPE PROPELLED THEM TO

LOVE THEIR NEIGHBOR WELL.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: THANKS,

JENNIFER.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, CAN

YOU IMAGINE THE WHOLE

THING IS A PUT-UP JOB FOR

A REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN?

IT WAS A CAMPAIGN SLOGAN.

AND PEOPLE, THEY FIGURE,

ARE SO GULLIBLE, THEY'LL

BUY THINGS LIKE THAT.

AND THAT'S THE WAY IT WAS.

SO ROMNEY GETS BEAT.

MICHAEL WARE WAS IN THE

MIDDLE OF IT, AND HE WILL

TELL YOU SOME STUFF MAYBE

YOU'VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE.

AND HIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE

WHEREVER THEY SELL THEM.

Terry: UP NEXT, HE

GREW UP SURROUNDED BY

DRING CERGSDRINKERS AND THEN BECAME

ONE HIMSELF.

IT MADE ME FEEL GOOD

ABOUT MYSELF.

Terry: BUT NOT FOR

LONG.

FIND OUT WHAT CAUSED HIM

TO BUT THE BOTTLE DOWN FOR

THE LAST TIME, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: HEY, THIS IS

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE

EVERY ONE OF YOU WITH US.

WE'VE GOT SOME TREMENDOUS

THINGS COMING UP.

YOU'VE GOT A POLICE

OFFICER MOLESTING HIS

SON -- WE WON'T GET TO

THAT YET.

BUT BRIAN JOHNSON I WAS A

HOMELESS ADDICT TO DRUGS

AND ALCOHOL.

AT ONE POINT HE SLEPT IN

HIS CAR UNTIL HE WRECKED

IT.

BRIAN HAD FIVE D.U.I.s,

AND HIS RECORD, HE KNEW,

NEEDED TO BE CHANGED.

HE JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

DO IT.

THERE WAS A LOT OF

FIGHTING, A LOT OF

YELLING, A LOT OF

SCREAMING, HOLLERING, EVEN

BREAKING OF FURNITURE.

AND THEY DID THAT IN FRONT

OF ME.

Reporter: BRIAN

JOHNSON GREW UP IN A

DIVIDED HOME, WHERE

INFIDELITY AND ALCOHOL

FUELED HIS PARENTS'

CONSTANT FIGHTING.

I CAN REMEMBER PRAYING

TO GOD, PLEASE JUST MAKE

IT STOP.

BECAUSE I LOVE BOTH OF

THEM AND I DIDN'T WANT TO

SEE THEM DOING THOSE

THINGS AND ACTING THAT

WAY.

Reporter: THE CHAOS

LEFT BRIAN FEELING

INSECURE AND ALONE.

AS A TEEN, HE BEGAN TO

DEAL WITH THE PAIN OF HIS

HOME LIFE THE SAME WAY HIS

PARENTS DEALT WITH THEIR

MARRIAGE PROBLEMS.

I NEVER FELT LIKE I

BELONGED OR I HAD ANYTHING

IN COMMON WITH OTHER KIDS.

AND IF YOU WERE DRINKING,

THEN YOU WERE ACCEPTED.

IT MADE ME FEEL GOOD ABOUT

MYSELF.

Reporter: BRIAN

CONTINUED TO DRINK THIS

WAY THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL.

AT 18, HE WAS CITED FOR A

D.U.I. AND PUT ON

PROBATION.

LOOKING BACK, I THINK

THAT THOSE WERE RED FLAGS.

I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE

TO BAIL ME OUT, AND SO I

PRAYED FOR GOD TO GET ME

OUT.

BUT I WOULD GO RIGHT BACK

TO THE SAME BEHAVIOR.

Reporter: THE ONLY

THING THAT GAVE BRIAN ANY

CONFIDENCE WAS HIS SKILL

AS A GOLFER.

I WORSHIPPED GOLF.

WHEN I PLAYED GOOD GOLF, I

FELT GOOD ABOUT MYSELF, I

FELT GOOD ABOUT LIFE.

AND I THOUGHT THAT I'M

GOING TO BE SOMEBODY.

Reporter: BRIAN HOPED

TO OBTAIN AN ATHLETIC

SCHOLARSHIP AT AUBURN AS A

WALK-ON.

BUT HIS ALCOHOL ADDICTION

FOLLOWED HIM TO COLLEGE.

DESPITE A PROMISE FROM HIS

COACH, BRIAN WAS CUT FROM

THE TEAM.

I HAD TO FACE THE

REALITY THAT I WASN'T

GOING TO MAKE IT AS A

GOLFER.

THAT WAS HARD FOR ME TO

HANDLE.

THAT SENT ME INTO A

DEPRESSION AND A LOT MORE

DRINKING.

Reporter: HIS

DOWNWARD SPIRAL LANDED HIM

IN JAIL FOR HIS FIFTH

D.U.I.

BRIAN WENT INTO REHAB IN

LIEU OF MORE JAIL TIME.

WHILE THERE, HIS MOTHER

PASSED AWAY.

BROKEN-HEARTED, HE

ATTENDED A CHURCH SERVICE

AT THE FACILITY.

THERE WAS A PERSON THAT

GOT ON STAGE TO GIVE THEIR

TESTIMONY.

AND THE PERSON SAID, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOVE

JESUS AND HE'LL CHANGE

YOUR STORY.

AND IT TOUCHED MY HEART.

AFTER THAT CHURCH SERVICE,

I STILL HAD THE WEIGHT OF

THE WORLD ON MY SHOULDERS.

BUT THE THINGS THAT THE

WOMAN HAD SAID ON STAGE

LED ME TO BELIEVE THAT GOD

COULD CHANGE MY STORY.

Reporter: BRIAN WENT

BACK TO HIS ROOM AND

PRAYED.

I SAID, PLEASE, GOD,

HELP ME.

HELP ME OUT OF THIS.

I WANTED JESUS TO CHANGE

MY HEART.

I WANTED JESUS TO CHANGE

MY LIFE.

AND I WAS READY BECAUSE I

WAS AT THE VERY BOTTOM.

Reporter: IT WAS THEN

THAT BRIAN SURRENDERED HIS

LIFE TO CHRIST.

THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT

I'D NEVER EXPERIENCED TO

THIS DAY, WHERE THE WEIGHT

OF THE WORLD COMES OFF OF

YOUR SHOULDERS.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE IS

THIS LIGHT INSIDE OF YOU.

ALL OF A SUDDEN ALL OF

YOUR SIN AND ALL OF THE

WEIGHT AND ALL OF THE

SHAME -- IT'S ALL GONE.

IT'S LIKE EVERYTHING IS A

BEGINNING.

Reporter: THAT SAME

NIGHT BRIAN WAS DELIVERED

OF HIS ALCOHOL ADDICTION.

UNLESS I WAS DRINKING,

I NEVER FELT LIKE I WAS

GOOD ENOUGH.

BUT JESUS SAID, I'M GOING

TO LIVE INSIDE OF YOU AND

I'M GOING TO USE YOU.

Reporter: BRIAN

COMPLETED REHAB AND HAS

BEEN SO SOBER FOR OVER SIX

YEARS.

TODAY HE IS MARRIED AND

LIVES IN ALABAMA, WHERE HE

HELPS OTHERS OVERCOME

ADDICTIONS.

HE IS EVEN PLAYING GOLF

AGAIN, RECENTLY WINNING

THE CITY CHAMPIONSHIP.

BUT MOST OF ALL, HE IS

GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR A

CHANGED STORY AND A

CHANGED LIFE.

JESUS PROVIDED ME THE

FREEDOM FROM THE REGRET

AND THE SHAME THAT I HAD

ABOUT MY LIFE.

BUT MORE THAN THAT, JESUS

SPOKE TO ME AND SAID,

YOU'RE GOOD ENOUGH.

I LOVE YOU, AND I ACCEPT

YOU.

AND NOW I FEEL LIKE I KNOW

WHERE I CAME FROM.

I KNOW WHO I AM.

I KNOW WHAT MY PURPOSE IS.

AND I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING

AFTER ALL OF THIS.

Pat: THE BOOK OF

ISAIAH, WE READ WHERE GOD

SAYS, COME AND LET'S

REASON TOGETHER.

THOUGH YOUR SINS BE A

SCARLETT, THEY SHOULD BE

WHITE AS SNOW.

COME, LET US REASON.

GOD INVITES YOU TO COME.

HE INVITED BRIAN TO COME.

I KNOW HE WAS CARRYING A

BURDEN, AND IT WASN'T HIS

FAULT.

IT WASN'T HIS FAULT THAT

HIS PARENTS WERE

ALCOHOLICS AND YELLING AT

EACH OTHER AND BREAKING

FURNITURE AND TEARING THE

PLACE APART.

AND HE WAS TRYING TO

ESCAPE THAT AS A LITTLE

BOY.

IT WASN'T HIS FAULT.

BUT HE DID IT, AND WHEN HE

DID IT, IT BECAME A SIN.

THOUGH YOUR SINS ARE A

SCARLETT, THEY SHALL BE

WHITE LIKE SNOW.

GOD WILL WASH AWAY THE RED

STAIN OF SIN AND MAKE IT

WHITE.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN TERRIBLY

IMMORAL, AND YOU'RE

ASHAMED OF IT.

YOU MAY BE WATCHING PORN,

AND YOU'RE ASHAMED OF IT.

YOU MAY HAVE INSULTED YOUR

PARENTS -- MAYBE ONE OF

YOUR PARENTS DIED AFTER

YOU SCREAMED AT THEM, AND

YOU FEEL GUILTY BECAUSE --

YOU DIDN'T KILL THEM, BUT

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DID.

YOU HAVE THIS GUILT.

AND BRIAN SAID, I HAVE HAD

THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD.

AND YOU MAY FEEL THE

WEIGHT OF THE WORLD.

AND THE LORD SAYS, LISTEN,

I'M GOING TO WASH AWAY

YOUR SIN, AND I WILL MAKE

YOU COMPLETELY WHOLE.

AND THAT WEIGHT WILL

LEAVE.

COME UNTO ME, ALL YOU WHO

LABOR AND ARE HEAVY-LADEN,

AND I'LL GIVE YOU REST.

COME UNTO ME.

AND RIGHT NOW JESUS CALLS

TO YOU, COME UNTO ME.

I'LL TAKE CARE OF IT.

I'LL WASH YOUR SINS AWAY,

MAKE YOU WHITE AS SNOW,

LIFT YOUR BURDEN, AND GIVE

YOU PEACE.

IF YOU WANT THAT, I WANT

YOU TO PRAY WITH ME RIGHT

NOW, A SIMPLE PRAYER --

IT'S NOTHING COMPLICATED,

JUST SIMPLE.

WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO

ACKNOWLEDGE THE LORD AND

ASK HIM TO COME INTO YOUR

HEART.

BOW YOUR HEAD RIGHT NOW

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

PRAY WITH ME A SIMPLE

PRAYER.

LORD JESUS, YOU KNOW I'M A

SINNER.

YOU KNOW THAT MY SINS ARE

AS CRIMSON.

YOU KNOW THEY'RE RED LIKE

CRIMSON.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE

DONE.

YOU'VE BEEN THERE WHEN I

HAVE BEEN UNFAITHFUL.

YOU'VE BEEN THERE WHEN

I'VE DONE THOSE THINGS.

YOU'VE SEEN WHAT I'VE

DONE.

I CAN'T HIDE IT FROM YOU.

AND I OPEN MY HEART TO

YOU, AND I SAY, LORD, I AM

A SINNER.

BE MERCIFUL TO ME, A

SINNER.

COME AND CLEANSE MY HEART.

TAKE AWAY THE GUILT.

TAKE AWAY THE BURDEN, AND

SET ME FREE.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I

RECEIVE YOU AS MY SAVIOR

AND MAKE YOU LORD OF MY

LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AMEN.

AMEN.

IT'S LIFTED.

YOU'RE WHITE AS SNOW.

THE LORD HAS FORGIVEN YOU.

I WANT YOU TO CALL NOW AND

TELL US WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING TO HELP YOU GET

GOING.

WE'VE HAD THIS AROUND FOR

A WHILE, BUT IT IS JUST AS

POWERFUL AS EVER.

IT IS A 73-MINUTE TEACHING

ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND WE'VE GOT A LITTLE

BOOKLET WITH TEACHING IN

RIGHT HERE.

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

THERE IS NO FINANCIAL

INVOLVEMENT WHATSOEVER.

YOU JUST CALL IN AND SAY,

I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LAW.

1-800-700-7000.

QUICKLY GO TO YOUR PHONE.

THERE IS SOMEBODY THERE.

IF FOR ANY REASON THE

LINES ARE BUSY, THEY'LL

CLEAR UP VERY QUICKLY.

IT IS TOLL-FREE.

NO CHARGE.

NO MONEY.

NO FINANCIAL OBLIGATION.

THE SALVATION COST THE

LIFE OF JESUS, BUT THERE

IS NO MONEY FOR THIS ONE.

GO TO YOUR PHONE RIGHT NOW

AND CALL.

1-800-700-7000.

SAY, I JUST PRAYED.

I JUST GAVE MY HEART TO

THE LORD.

AND HUNDREDS OF HUNDREDS

OF PEOPLE RIGHT NOW ARE

MAKING THE SAME DECISION

YOU ARE.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, A WIFE GETS A

SURPRISE PHONE CALL AND

LEARNS THAT HER HUSBAND

WAS ARRESTED FOR SEXUALLY

ABUSING HER DAUGHTER.

GET THE REST OF THE STORY

WHEN WE RETURN.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE SENATE IS SET TO

CONFIRM PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

NOMINEE FOR SECRETARY OF

EDUCATION, BETSY DeVOS

TODAY.

THE VOTE COMES AFTER

DEMOCRATS STAGED AN

ALL-NIGHT SPEAKING

MARATHON ON THE SENATE

FLOOR IN A SHOW OF

OPPOSITION TO DeVOS.

THEY WERE TRYING TO GET

ANOTHER REPUBLICAN TO JOIN

THEM TO VOTE AGAINST HER.

DEMOCRATS WILL HOLD THE

FLOOR FOR THE NEXT 24

HOURS, UNTIL THE FINAL

VOTE, TO DO EVERYTHING WE

CAN TO PERSUADE JUST ONE

MORE REPUBLICAN TO JOIN

US.

Wendy: TWO REPUBLICAN

SENATORS HAVE SAID THEY

WILL NOT VOTE FOR DeVOS.

THAT MEANS THE SENATE WAS

SPLIT 50/50, AND VICE

PRESIDENT PENCE WOULD VOTE

TO BREAK THE TIE AND

CONFIRM DeVOS.

> BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IS

IN LONDON MEETING WITH THE

U.K. PRIME MINISTER TODAY.

IRAN IS AT THE TOP OF

THEIR AGENDA.

NETANYAHU SAYS THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING AT THE

MOMENT IS THAT COUNTRIES

LIKE THE U.S. AND THE U.K.

LINE UP AGAINST IRAN'S

AGGRESSION AND SET CLEAR

LIMITS AGAINST IT.

IRAN HAS CARRIED OUT ABOUT

A DOZEN BALLISTIC MISSILE

TESTS OVER THE PAST TWO

YEARS, AND INCREASED ITS

STOCKPILE OF URANIUM 60%

SINCE THE IRAN NUCLEAR

DEAL.

NETANYAHU WILL VISIT

PRESIDENT TRUMP NEXT WEEK.

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: ON ONE MONDAY

MANY YEARS AGO, WENDY WAS

AT WORK.

10 MINUTES TO THE END OF

THE DAY, THE NEW

RECEPTIONIST RAN TO

WENDY'S DESK AND TOLD HER

SHE HAD TO TAKE AN URGENT

CALL.

SHE SOON LEARNED HER LIFE

WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME.

Reporter: THE

NIGHTMARE STARTED WHEN

WENDY GOT A PHONE CALL

FROM THE POLICE.

IN A HORRIFYING MOMENT,

SHE LEARNED HER HUSBAND,

WHO WAS IN LAW

ENFORCEMENT, HAD BE

ARRESTED.

HE HAD BEEN SEXUALLY

ABUSING HER DAUGHTER FOR

THE PAST SIX YEARS.

DEVASTATED AT THE NEWS,

SHE CRIED OUT TO GOD FOR

HELP AS SHE FACED

HUMILIATION, HOMELESSNESS,

AND EVEN UNEMPLOYMENT.

IN HER BOOK, "UNBROKEN,"

WENDY SHARES HER STORY OF

STARTING OVER, AND OFFERS

WORDS OF HOPE AND COMFORT

FOR THOSE WHO ARE

SUFFERING.

Terry: WENDY BASLEY

ROCHE IS WITH US NOW.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR

STORY WITH US TODAY.

YOU HAD NO CLUE THIS WAS

GOING ON?

NO CLUE.

YOU KNOW, THERE WAS AN

UNSETTLEDNESS IN ME FOR A

FEW MONTHS BEFORE THE

PHONE CALL.

THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG,

BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS ME.

I ACTUALLY THOUGHT I WAS

GOING CRAZY.

THERE WAS A STIRRING AND

UNCOMFORTABLENESS.

AND I EVEN WENT TO A

COUNSELLOR TO TRY TO SEEK

HELP.

Terry: WAS THE PHONE

CALL THE FIRST MOMENT THAT

YOU HAD A CLUE ABOUT THIS?

WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR

MIND?

OKAY.

SO BECAUSE I HAD GONE

CRAZY FEELING, THERE WAS A

MOMENT JUST WEEKS PRIOR TO

THIS PHONE CALL, WHERE I

LITERALLY PULLED OFF TO

THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND

SCREAMED AT THE TOP OF MY

LUNGS, HELP ME, GOD.

YOU KNOW, I RECEIVED THAT

PHONE CALL, AND WHEN THE

OFFICER HAD TOLD ME WHAT

HAPPENED, A FLASHBACK OF

JUST THE UNSETTLEDNESS AND

THE CRAZINESS THAT HAD

BEEN GOING ON, AND IT

SUDDENLY MADE SENSE.

BUT I HAD NO IDEA IT HAD

ANYTHING TO DO WITH MY

DAUGHTER.

Terry: HOW WAS THE

ABUSE DISCOVERED BY THE

POLICE?

YOU KNOW, THAT'S THE

AMAZING PART.

I CRIED OUT TO GOD.

AND WITHIN A FEW WEEKS, AN

ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF EVENTS

TRANSPIRED THAT RECALLED ROLLED US

UP TO THAT MOMENT WHERE

SHE ACTUALLY HAD THE

COURAGE AND OPPORTUNITY TO

TELL.

SHE WAS ACTUALLY

TRAVELLING OUT OF STATE

WITH HER BIOLOGICAL FATHER

AND HER BROTHER, AND

STOPPED AT A GIRLFRIEND'S

HOUSE IN TEXAS, WHICH IS

WHERE SHE ENDED UP TELLING

HER FRIEND.

AND HER FRIEND TOLD HER TO

TELL HER MOTHER, AND THEN

THEY WERE ABLE TO TALK TO

HER FATHER.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

PEOPLE WHO ARE

PERPETRATORS OF THIS OFTEN

ARE VERY MANIPULATIVE AND

KNOW JUST WHAT TO SAY TO A

CHILD TO MAKE THEM SILENT

ABOUT THE ABUSE.

YOUR DAUGHTER HAD GONE

THROUGH THIS FOR, LIKE,

SIX YEARS AND HAD BEEN

TOLD BY YOUR HUSBAND THAT

YOU WOULD NOT MAKE IT.

YOU WOULD HARM YOURSELF OR

NOT WANT TO LIVE ANYMORE

IF SHE EVER CAME CLEAN

WITH THIS.

BECAUSE I THINK PEOPLE

THINK, WHY WOULDN'T A

CHILD COME FORWARD AND

TELL?

BUT I'VE HEARD STORY AFTER

STORY ABOUT THIS

MANIPULATIVE ACTION BY THE

ABUSER.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU EVEN

TOOK IT IN.

HE HAD HER CONVINCED I

WOULD END MY LIFE IF I

KNEW.

AND SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO

BELIEVE THAT.

BECAUSE THE TRUTH WAS I

WAS AN INSECURE WOMAN.

I'D BEEN THROUGH BROKEN

MARRIAGES.

I HAD BEEN THROUGH THE

INSECURITIES OF NEVER

FEELING GOOD ENOUGH AND

WORKING SO HARD TO ALWAYS

BE GOOD ENOUGH.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, IN

THAT CRAZINESS THAT I

SPOKE OF, THERE WAS A TIME

WHEN I LITERALLY WANTED TO

END MY LIFE.

THERE WERE TIMES IN MY

CHILDHOOD WHERE I DIDN'T

THINK I REALLY MATTERED.

OR I THOUGHT MAYBE LIFE

WOULD BE BETTER WITHOUT

ME.

SO SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO

BE MANIPULATED THAT WAY.

AND I'M JUST AMAZED AT HER

COURAGE.

Terry: YOU WERE NOT A

BELIEVER AT THE TIME --

YOU HAD CRIED OUT TO GOD

AT THE SIDE OF THE ROAD,

BUT YOU WERE NOT SOMEONE

WHO WAS PERSONALLY

COMMITTED TO CHRIST OR

PRACTICING A FAITH WALK OF

ANY KIND.

HOW DID THIS WHOLE

SCENARIO FOR YOU TURN

AROUND?

BECAUSE IN THE BOOK YOU

RECOUNT THE MIRADO OF MYRIAD OF

THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO

YOU, WITH THE PRESS COMING

TO YOUR DOOR AND THE KIDS

COULDN'T GO OUT.

HOW DID GOD TAKE WHAT THE

ENEMY MEANT FOR EVIL AND

BEGIN TO TURN IT AROUND

FOR YOU?

WHICH IS THE AMAZING

THING.

IT WAS ALL ABOUT HIS LOVE.

I REALIZED AFTER THE PHONE

CALL, AND EVERYTHING JUST

LITERALLY BEING STRIPPED

AWAY, AS I LAID THERE AND

CONTEMPLATED, LIKE A

MOVIE, OF THE EVENTS THAT

BROUGHT ME UP TO THAT

MOMENT IN MY LIFE, I

REALIZED THAT ALTHOUGH

EVERYTHING WAS STRIPPED

AWAY WITH THIS PHONE

CALL -- LITERALLY, I

DIDN'T HAVE MY CHILDREN

WITH ME.

I ENDED UP LOSING THE

HOUSE AND THE JOB AND

MOVING OUT OF THE AREA.

BUT I REALIZED THAT AS

LIFE WAS STRIPPING

EVERYTHING AWAY, GOD WAS

BUSY REBUILDING.

AND I REALIZED THAT THE

EVENTS THAT TRANSPIRED, TO

ACTUALLY SET UP THE

APPOINTMENT FOR HER TO BE

ABLE TO TELL, THAT WAS GOD

ORCHESTRATING AND

ANSWERING MY CRY FOR HELP.

I SUSPECTED THAT.

BUT THEN SOON AFTER, DAY

AFTER DAY, AS THE BOOK

UNFOLD, THS, THE STORIES AND

EVENTS THAT TRANSPIRED

WERE SO NUMEROUS.

I WOULD CRY OUT TO GOD,

AND I WOULD HEAR HIM.

AND I WOULD FEEL HIS

PRESENCE.

AND HE WOULD OPEN DOORS I

NEVER COULD HAVE OPENED.

Terry: BUT THE

PROCESS WAS SO LONG.

YOU HAD TO ENDURE -- I

THINK ABOUT AFTER YOU

MOVED WITH YOUR CHILDREN

AND REESTABLISHED AND HAD

BEGUN TO START A NEW LIFE

OVER, YOU HAD TO COME BACK

TO THE COURT SCENARIO.

JUST FACING THOSE THINGS

WAS INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE

FIRST THINGS I LEARNED,

AND THE COURT DATE REMINDS

ME OF THIS, I HAD SO MUCH

FORGIVENESS TO GIVE TO

MYSELF, BESIDES THE

PERPETRATOR.

I HAD A LOT OF REGRET AND

GUILT, AND HOW COULD I

HAVE NOT KNOWN THAT MY

DAUGHTER WAS SUFFERING?

AND THE AGONY THAT A

PARENT GOES THROUGH IS

ENORMOUS.

Terry: AND YOU'RE

WALKING YOUR CHILDREN

THROUGH THIS WHOLE LIFE

IMPACTING PROCESS, IT ALSO

BROUGHT YOU TO A PLACE OF

FORGIVENESS WITH YOUR OWN

MOM?

IT DID.

AS I SAW GOD REFOLD AND

REBUILD OUR LIVES AND

ANSWER MY CRIES FOR HELP,

HE WAS LOVING ME.

AND I THOUGHT, BUT I

DIDN'T DO ANYTHING TO

DESERVE THAT LOVE.

IF HE COULD LOVE ME WHEN I

DIDN'T DESERVE IT, PERHAPS

I COULD LOVE SOMEONE ELSE

WHO I DIDN'T THINK

DESERVED IT.

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING I LEARNED ABOUT

FORGIVENESS WAS FORGIVING

SOMEONE DOESN'T MEAN THAT

WHAT HAPPENED WAS OKAY.

AND I USED TO THINK IT WAS

ALL THE SAME.

IF YOU SAID I FORGIVE YOU,

IT MEANS IT'S OKAY, WE'RE

GOOD, IT'S OVER.

I REALIZE, THAT'S NOT

FORGIVENESS.

I CAN FORGIVE THE PERSON,

MEANING I CAN LET GO OF

THE BOUND UP, TIED UP KNOT

THAT I WANTED TO JUST SAY

YOU OWE ME FOR THIS AND

THE ANGER -- I COULD RIP

THAT I.O.U. NOTE UP AND

SAY WHAT HAPPENED IS NOT

OKAY, IT WILL NEVER BE

OKAY, BUT I'M LETTING GO

OF YOU OWING ME FOR THIS.

AND I'M LAYING IT AT THE

CROSS AND I'M GIVING IT TO

JESUS, THE ONE WHO DIED ON

THE CROSS FOR ME, WHO WAS

BROKEN FOR ME, AND WHO

FORGIVES ME.

I'M GOING TO DO THE SAME.

Terry: IT'S A

REMARKABLE STORY.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THE

BOOK IS CALLED "UNBROKEN."

AND IT'S A TRUE STORY OF

HOPE AND STARTING OVER.

AND WHO DOESN'T WANT TO

HEAR THAT MESSAGE.

IT IS AVAILABLE IN STORES

NATIONWIDE.

IF YOU'VE BEEN, YOURSELF,

IN A SIMILAR SITUATION,

LET ME SAY IF YOU NEED

HELP, IF YOU NEED PRAYER,

WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO

GIVE US A CALL.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

AND SOMEONE ON THE OTHER

END WILL BE THERE TO TALK

WITH YOU AND TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

THE NUMBER IS:

1-800-700-7000.

THE BOOK IS CALLED

"UNBROKEN," AND OUR GUEST

HAS BEEN WENDY BASLEY

ROCHE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

CANDOR AND FOR BEING WITH

US TODAY.

THANK YOU FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE GOD'S

LOVE.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

DAVID ASKS, "IS IT A SIN

TO HAVE AND USE PSYCHIC

ABILITIES?"

WE'LL HAVE ANOTHER ROUND

OF "BRING IT ON."

THAT'S COMING UP, SO DON'T

GO AWAY.

Pat: BLENDER MOUTH

AND UGLY MONSTER, THOSE

ARE JUST A COUPLE OF NAMES

A YOUNG GIRL IN CHINA WAS

CALLED BECAUSE OF HER

CLEFT PALATE.

AND YET TODAY SHE LOVES TO

LOOK AT THE MIRROR AND

SMILE, THANKS TO PEOPLE

JUST LIKE YOU.

Terry: NO ONE IN HER

REMOTE VILLAGE HAD EVER

SEEN SOMEONE LIKE HER

BEFORE.

CLASSMATES WON'T EVEN CALL WOULDN'T EVEN

CALL HER BY NAME.

THEY JUST LAUGHED AT ME

AND CALLED ME BLENDER

MOUTH.

Terry: THEY CALLED

HER AN UGLY MONSTER, AND

SHE BELIEVED THAT'S ALL

SHE WOULD EVER BE.

I KNOW I'M UGLY.

EVERY TIME I LOOK IN THE

MIRROR, I SEE SOMEONE

HORRIBLE LOOKING BACK AT

ME.

THERE WERE TIMES I WANTED

TO JUMP OFF OUR BUILDING

AND END MY LIFE.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME SHE

DRANK POISON AND I TRIED

TO STOP HER.

Terry: ULTIMATELY,

THE MOTHER ABANDONED THE

FAMILY.

I JUST WANTED TO BE

PRETTY LIKE OTHER GIRLS,

BUT I WASN'T.

SO I HID UNDER MY BED AND

CRIED EVERY DAY AFTER

SCHOOL.

SHE DID VERY BAD IN

SCHOOL.

SHE HAD BREATHING PROBLEMS

AND SHE GOT NOSE BLEEDS

ALL THE TIME.

I FELT SO SORRY FOR HER.

ESPECIALLY WHEN HE ASKED

ME WHEN SHE COULD GET

SURGERY.

Terry: AS A FARMER,

MR. WANG ONLY MAKES A FEW

DOLLARS A DAY.

AFTER PAYING FOR LIVING

EXPENSES, SCHOOL FEES AND

MEDICINE FOR SING WAN, I

COULDN'T SAVE FOR SURGERY.

BUT I SAID, DON'T WORRY.

WE'LL FIND A WAY TO FIX

YOUR LIP.

YOU'LL BE FINE.

I DID NOT WANT MY DAUGHTER

TO HAVE TO STAY IN THE

COUNTRY THE WHOLE LIFE

WITH NO FRIENDS AND NO

FUTURE.

Terry: BUT THAT WAS

THE DIRECTION SHE WAS

HEADED UNTIL CBN SET UP

AND PAID FOR THE CLEFT LIP

SURGERY SHE AND HER FATHER

HAD DREAMED OF.

NOW THAT MY LIP HAS

BEEN REPAIRED, I LOOK IN

THE MIRROR AND THINK I'M

BEAUTIFUL, LIKE A BOUQUET

OF FLOWERS.

I EVEN HAVE DIMPLES THAT I

NEVER HAD BEFORE.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING MY

DAUGHTER SURGERY AND

COMPLETELY CHANGING HER

LIFE.

Terry: TODAY SING WAN

HAS FRIENDS.

SHE HOPES TO BE A CLEFT

LIP SURGEON ONE DAY.

AND AFTER MEETING PEOPLE

FROM CBN, SHE HAS PRAYED

TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

I HAVE A GOD WHO LOVES

ME.

I KNOW HE SENT CBN TO HELP

ME.

AND NOW I WILL LIFE TO

HELP OTHERS.

Pat: ISN'T SHE

BEAUTIFUL?

ISN'T SHE BEAUTIFUL?

THEY HAVE DONE A GREAT

JOB.

THAT'S A TREMENDOUS JOB.

THAT'S NOT AN EASY

SURGERY.

WHOEVER DID IT OVER THERE

IS REALLY AN EXPERT.

BUT THINK OF THAT.

IT COSTS ABOUT $500.

THIS ISN'T CHEAP.

AND WHEN YOU'RE LIVING IN

CHINA, AND MAYBE YOU GET

$10 A MONTH OR SOMETHING,

THAT'S A MONUMENTAL AMOUNT

OF MONEY.

BUT WE WERE ABLE TO DO IT.

AND ONE LIFE IS GOING TO

BE BE HAPPY AND PRODUCTIVE

AND SHE WANTS TO HELP

OTHERS, AND THAT'S BECAUSE

OF YOU.

NOW, WHAT CAN YOU DO TO

JOIN IN WITH THAT?

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS EASY.

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH.

WE'VE GOT THIS THING, "THE

SECRET KINGDOM," AND IT'S

SOME OF THE EXCERPTS FROM

MY BOOK.

AND GORDON HAS GOT

ANOTHER, "THE LAW OF

EXPECTATION."

AND WE'LL GIVE YOU THIS.

IT IS A D.V.D. ABOUT THOSE

THINGS.

AND IT'S RIGHT HERE, AND

IT WILWE'LL GIVE YOU THAT.

ANYHOW, MORE THAN GETTING

A LITTLE GIFT, YOU CAN

CHANGE SOMEBODY'S LIFE.

OKAY, WE'VE GOT SOME

QUESTIONS.

Terry: WE DO.

THIS IS DAVID, WHO WANTS

TO KNOW: "IS IT A SIN TO

HAVE AND USE PSYCHIC

ABILITIES, SUCH AS TELL TELEKEN

TELEKENESIS?"

Pat: IF YOU'VE GOT

IT, THE QUESTION IS WHERE

DID IT COME FROM?

I DON'T KNOW YOU SO I

CAN'T TELL YOU.

I DO THINK WE HAVE SOME

ABILITIES.

I THINK OUR BRAINS

TRANSMIT A.M. AND F.M.,

AND THERE SOME THINGS IN

THE FUTURE, TELEKENESIS

AND SO FAR -- THESE ARE

THINGS THAT PEOPLE HAVE

LEGITIMATELY.

BUT THERE IS NOTHING IN

THE BIBLE THAT TELLS YOU

TO STIR UP YOUR PSYCHIC.

IT IS THE GREEK WORD FOR

SOUL, PSYCHE.

I WANT TO SAY SOME OF THIS

STUFF CAN BE DEMONIC.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: JOYCE SAYS,

"MY SON-IN-LAW IS GETTING

INVOLVED WITH A GROUP OF

CHRISTIANS WHO BELIEVE THE

WORLD IS FLAT.

THEY EVEN CLAIM IT IS

WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE MANY

TIMES.

THEY EVEN SAY NASA IS

LYING TO US ABOUT GOING

INTO SPACE.

IS THIS ANOTHER CONSPIRACY

THEORY OR ARE THEY ON TO

SOMETHING?"

Pat: EVERYBODY KNOWS

THE WORLD IS FLAT -- COME

OFF IT.

HIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS

THING.

WHY WOULD ANY INTELLIGENT

PERSON IN 2017 THINK THAT

THE WORLD IS FLAT?

Terry: TO THINK THERE

IS A GROUP OF THEM IS A

LITTLE SCARY.

Pat: GOOD GRIEF.

THAT'S THE BLESSING OF

MODERN EDUCATION.

THAT'S NUTS, THAT'S ALL I

CAN SAY.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: THIS IS NICK

WHO SAYS, "MY ROOMMATE,

WHOM I'VE BEEN GOOD

FRIENDS WITH FOR YEARS,

RECENTLY GOT INTO WICCA.

HE SAYS IT DOESN'T CHANGE

HIS FAITH IN GOD, AND THAT

HE JUST FINDS HIS FUN.

SHOULD I BE CONCERNED?

AND SHOULD I CONTINUE

BEING ROOMMATES OR SHOULD

I MOVE OUT?"

Pat: I THINK YOU

SHOULD MOVE OUT.

THEY SAY IT'S WHITE

WITCHCRAFT AND NOT BLACK

WITCHCRAFT -- NO.

DEMONS ARE DEMONS.

THE DEVIL IS THE DEVIL.

HE CAN APPEAR AS AN ANGEL

OF LIGHT.

NO WAY.

NO WAY.

THEY SAY, WE'RE THE WHITE

WITCHES.

STAY AWAY FROM THAT.

GET OUT, MOVE.

WHATEVER.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS IS HEATHER WHO SAYS,

"MY HUSBAND AND I WANT TO

BE BAPTIZED SOON AND DON'T

BELONG TO A CHURCH.

WE STUDY THE BIBLE AND

WATCH "THE 700 CLUB"

DAILY, AND WE HAVE

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

WITH GOD.

WE BELONG TO "THE 700

CLUB" AND REALLY DON'T

WANT TO BELONG TO A CHURCH

JUST TO BE BAPTIZED.

CAN WE BAPTIZE EACH OTHER

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER,

SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT?

WE RESPECT YOUR OPINION

AND HOPE TO HEAR YOUR

THOUGHTS."

Pat: YOU COULD.

SERIOUSLY, YOU COULD.

BUT I'M SURE YOU CAN FIND

A CHURCH SOME PLACE WHERE

THEY WON'T MAKE YOU JOIN

THE CHURCH IN ORDER TO BE

BAPTIZED.

YOU CAN FIND A MINISTER

AND GO OFF TO SOME POND OR

CREEK OR A BATHTUB AND BE

BAPTIZED.

BY ALL MEANS, DO IT.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE

BIBLE THAT SAYS YOU HAVE

TO BE AN ORDAINED MINISTER

IN ORDER TO BAPTIZE

SOMEBODY.

COULD YOU BAPTIZE EACH

OTHER?

YEAH.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE: "FOR

NO MATTER HOW MANY

PROMISES GAD HA GOD HAS MADE,

THEY ARE YES IN CHRIST."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.

BYE-BYE.
