The 700 Club - March 7, 2017

It’s the second “Silicon Valley” of the world and it’s located right on the shores of Israel. Plus, the snowboarder who wanted to be the best and have a little fun along the way. See what happens when he crashes to the ground. Read Transcript


TODAY...IT'S THE SECOND

SILICON VALLEYS OF THE

WORLD, AND IT IS LOCATED

RIGHT ON THE SHORES OF

ISRAEL.

I THINK THE WHOLE

VENTURE OF ISRAEL IS A

START-UP VENTURE.

GET AN INSIDE LOOK AT

THE HIGH-TECH CITY OF TEL

AVIV.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

ISRAEL WAS BORN.

PLUS, THE PRO SNOW

BORDER WHO WANTED TO BE

THE BEST.

I TOLD MY DAD, THAT'S

WHAT I WANTED TO DO.

AND HAVE A LITTLE FUN

ALONG THE WAY.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HE

CRASHES TO THE GROUND.

IT KIND OF HURTS

SOMETIMES.

TODAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS.

IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF

THIS BRU HA-H BROUHAHA ABOUT WHO

TOLD THE RUSSIANS WHAT AND

WHO ORDERED WH WIRETAPS, KIM

JONG-UN HAS DECIDED HE

WANTS TO PLAY NASTY IN THE

FAR EAST.

HE LAUNCHED A TRIOF TRIO OF

MISSILES INTO THE SEA OF

JAPAN.

THE REASON HE WAS DOING IT

WAS TO TEST THE MECHANISM

AND THE CONTROL MECHANISMS

FOR THESE LAUNCHES,

LOOKING TO HAVE A MISSILE

WITH A WARHEAD, CAPABLE OF

HITTING JAPAN AND

ULTIMATELY AMERICA.

THAT'S WHAT HE SAYS.

HE SAYS, WE'RE GOING TO

GET YOU AND HE IS GIVING

US WARNING.

SO WHAT IS TRUMP GOING TO

DO?

I WISH THE PEOPLE IN

WASHINGTON WOULD GET THEIR

MINDS OFF THIS NONSENSE

THEY'RE INVOLVED IN AND

LOOK AT SOME OF THE

THREATS FACING US AS

AMERICANS.

HOWEVER, I AM PLEASED TO

REPORT THE REPUBLICANS

HAVE COME UP WITH A VERY

SIGNIFICANT STEP TOWARDS

FULFILLING ONE OF THE

PRESIDENT'S BIGGEST

CAMPAIGN PROMISES BY

INTRODUCING A NEW PLAN TO

REPEAL AND REPLACE

OBAMACARE.

AND REPUBLICANS BELIEVE

THAT CERTAINLY IN THE

HOUSE THEY CAN GET THE

VOTES TO PASS IT.

Terry: EVEN SO, THAT

PLAN IS GOING TO FACE

ROADBLOCKS IN CONGRESS,

DEMOCRATS QUICKLY ATTACKED

IT, AS EXPECTED, AND EVEN

SOME CONSERVATIVES HAVE

QUESTIONS ABOUT IT.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: LAST WEEK

PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLED ON

ACTIOCONGRESS TO TAKE ACTION ON

OBAMACARE.

President Trump: I AM

CALLING ON DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS TO SAVE

AMERICANS FROM THIS

IMPLODING OBAMACARE

DISASTER.

Charlene: IT IS

CALLED "THE AMERICAN

HEALTH CARE ACT."

TWO OF THE HOUSE

REPUBLICANS BEHIND IT,

INCLUDING KEVIN BRADY, SAY

IN A PIECE IN THE "WALL

STREET JOURNAL" TODAY THAT

IT WILL RESCUE THOSE HURT

BY OBAMACARE'S FAILURES

AND LAY THE GROUND WORK

FOR A PATIENT-CENTERED

HEALTH CARE SYSTEM.

IT WILL LOWER COSTS FOR

PATIENTS AND BEGIN

RETURNING CONTROL FROM

WASHINGTON BACK TO THE

STATES.

THE BILL WILL IMPROVE

ACCESS TO CARE AND RESTORE

THE FREE MARKET,

INCREASING INNOVATION,

COMPETITION, AND CHOICE.

THE PLAN GETS RID OF SOME

OF THE MOST UNPOPULAR

PARTS OF OBAMACARE, LIKE

TRYING TO FORCE PEOPLE TO

BUY HEALTH CARE INSURANCE,

EVEN IF THEY DON'T WANT

TO.

THE MEASURE ALSO

ELIMINATES OBAMACARE'S

TAXES.

AND IT BLOCKS TAXPAYER

MONEY FROM GOING TO

PLANNED PARENTHOOD FOR A

YEAR.

THE BILL GETS RID OF

OBAMACARE'S GOVERNMENT

SUBSIDIES FOR HEALTH

INSURANCE.

IT REPLACES THEM WITH

FEDERAL TAX CREDITS TO

HELP PEOPLE BUY INSURANCE.

AND IT EXPANDS

CONTRIBUTIONS TO HEALTH

SAVINGS ATTACKS.

AND IT FORBIDS

CONTRIBUTION TO ANY PLANS

TO COVER ABORTION.

IT LET'S YOUNG ADULTS STAY

ON THEIR PARENTS' PLANS

UNTIL THEY'RE 26, AND

PROTECTING PEOPLE WITH

PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS.

BUT THERE ARE STILL MANY

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLAN,

INCLUDING HOW MANY PEOPLE

MAY LOSE INSURANCE FROM

OBAMACARE, AND HOW MUCH IT

WILL COST.

THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET

OFFICE HASN'T ESTIMATED

THAT YET.

AND MANY REPUBLICANS HAVE

QUESTIONS ABOUT PARTS OF

THE PLAN.

AND DEMOCRATS WILL OPPOSE

IT BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT

TO GET RID OF OBAMACARE.

BUT OBAMACARE HAS BEEN

UNPOPULAR IN THE POLLS FOR

SEVERAL YEARS.

AND EVEN FORMER PRESIDENT

CLINTON BLASTED IT ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL LAST YEAR.

SO YOU'VE GOT THIS

CRAZY SYSTEM WHERE ALL OF

A SUDDEN 25 MILLION MORE

PEOPLE HAVE HEALTH CARE,

AND THEN THE PEOPLE THAT

ARE OUT THERE BUSTING

THEMSELVES, SOMETIMES 60

HOURS A WEEK, WIND UP WITH

THEIR PREMIUMS DOUBLED AND

THEIR COVERAGE CUT IN

HALF.

IT IS THE CRAZIEST THING

IN THE WORLD.

Charlene: THE PLAN IS

LIKELY TO BE A STARTING

POINT FOR DISCUSSION ON

REPLACING OBAMACARE.

AND IT MAY TAKE A WHILE.

IT TOOK THE DEMOCRATS OVER

A YEAR TO PASS OBAMA'S

HEALTH CARE PLAN IN 2009

AND 2010, BUT REPUBLICANS

ARE CLEARLY DETERMINED TO

PUSH AHEAD SO THEY CAN

THEN MOVE ON TO THEIR NEXT

BIG GOAL FOR THIS YEAR:

REFORMING THE TAX CODE AND

CUTTING TAXES FOR

BUSINESSES AND

INDIVIDUALS.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU REMEMBER THE

PRESIDENT -- IF YOU LIKE

YOUR DOCTOR, YOU CAN KEEP

HIM?

THAT WAS A LIE.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTH

CARE PROVIDER, YOU CAN

KEEP IT.

THAT WAS A LIE.

HE WENT AROUND AND SOLD

THIS THING WITH JUST

NOTHING BUT LIES.

THEY LIED A LOT.

AND NOT ONE REPUBLICAN

JOINED IN VOTING FOR THAT

THING.

IT WAS JAMMED THROUGH BY A

DEMOCRAT MAJORITY IN THE

CONGRESS.

AND NO REPUBLICAN WAS

ASKED TO PARTICIPATE.

NOW IT'S TIME TO CHANGE

IT, AND IT'S TIME, I MIGHT

ADD, FOR THE DEMOCRATS TO

GET ON BOARD.

WHAT WAS THERE IS THEY

WERE TRYING TO FORCE

YOUNGER WORKERS INTO A

PLAN THAT THEY DIDN'T

WANT, AND THEY WERE

PUTTING STUFF ON THAT ONLY

APPLIED TO ELDERLY PEOPLE.

AND THE GUYS OF 26, 27, 30

AND SO FORTH SAID, WE

DON'T NEED THIS STUFF.

WHY SHOULD WE BUY IT?

AND SO THE EXCHANGES WERE

GOING BROKE ALL AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

OUT IN ARIZONA, THE

PREMIUMS HAVE GONE UP OVER

100%.

IT IS JUST CRAZY.

AND THIS THING HAS GOT TO

GO.

SO IF THE DEMOCRATS WANT

TO HAVE A LAST-DITCH

BATTLE AND SAY WE'LL HOLD

ON TO THIS FADING SHIP --

THE SHIP IS GOING DOWN,

BUT WE'LL GO DOWN WITH IT.

WELL, GOOD FOR THEM.

BUT IT IS TIME THE

REPUBLICANS SAY WE CANNOT

STAND IT ANY LONGER.

IT HAS GOT TO BE CHANGED.

AND IT HAS GOT TO BE

REPEALED.

THEY'VE GOT TO GET RID OF

IT AND THEN PUT IT IN.

THIS IS A PATIENT ARE-CENTERED

DEAL.

IT IS PORTABLE, AND YOU

CAN GO FROM STATE TO

STATE.

THAT'S GOOD.

IF YOU HAVE A KID AT HOME,

26, HE CAN STAY ON YOUR

POLICY UNTIL HE GETS TO BE

26.

THAT'S OKAY.

IF YOU'RE HAVING

DIFFICULTY PAYING YOUR

PREMIUMS, THEY WERE TAKING

MEDICARE AND MEDICAID TO

DO THAT, AND I THINK

THEY'LL STILL HAVE TO HAVE

SOME KIND OF A SUBSIDY.

THEY CANNOT JUST DUMP A

WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE.

THERE WILL BE AN OUTCRY OF

MASSIVE PROPORTIONS.

SO IF PEOPLE ARE, YOU

KNOW, ON THE OTHER

PROGRAM, THEY'VE GOT -- IT

HAS TO HAVE A LEGITIMATE

TRANSITION PERIOD.

AND THEN THEY'LL HAVE

HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS,

WHICH ARE WONDERFUL

THINGS.

THEY'LL DOUBLE THAT

AMOUNT.

SO IT'S A PATIENT-CENTERED

FREE MARKET-TYPE OF

PROGRAM THAT CAN COMMEND

ITSELF TO THE THINKING

PEOPLE IN AMERICA.

BUT THE DEMOCRATS WILL

SCREAM AND YELL.

AND WE'RE SICK OF THAT

SCREAMING AND YELLING.

IT IS TIME TO STOP AND GET

ON WITH IT.

LET'S DO SOMETHING GOOD

FOR AMERICA.

> OKAY, NOW, THE

PRESIDENT HAS ALSO SIGNED

A SECOND EXECUTIVE ORDER

ON IMMIGRATION.

IT'S INTENDED TO KEEP OUT

POSSIBLE TERRORISTS.

IT IS NOT A, QUOTE,

"ANTI-MUSLIM BAN."

I POINT OUT ONE MORE TIME,

IT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE

LARGEST MUSLIM COUNTRY IN

THE WORLD, WHICH IS

INDONESIA, NOR DOES IT

INCLUDE EGYPT, WHICH IS

PROBABLY THE SECOND

LARGEST.

NOR DOES IT INCLUDE

PAKISTAN.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN HERE

ARE FAILED STATES WHERE

THE GOVERNMENT IS UNABLE

TO VET ANY OF THEIR PEOPLE

AND GIVE A SATISFACTORY

ANSWER.

SO IT MEANS EXTREME

VETTING.

IT MEANS THE PEOPLE FROM

THOSE COUNTRIES ARE GOING

TO HAVE TO BE VETTED.

I MIGHT SAY, THE ACLU IS

ALREADY BRINGING LAWSUITS,

AND THEY ARE CLAIMING IT

IS IN VIOLATION OF THE,

QUOTE, "ESTABLISHMENT OF

RELIGION CLAUSE OF THE

CONSTITUTION."

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE IS GOING

INTO COURT EVERY TIME THEY

DO AND COMING UP WITH A

CASE AGAINST THEM.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

WILL ALSO FIGHT THEM.

BUT THE AMERICAN CENTER

FOR LAW AND JUSTICE WILL

HAVE THE ANSWERS TO THIS

NONSENSE, THAT THIS

SOMEHOW ESTABLISHES

RELIGION TO KEEP PEOPLE

FROM YEMEN FROM COMING

INTO THIS COUNTRY.

THIS IS JUST INSANE.

BUT WE'RE DEALING IN A

WORLD OF INSANITY.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE.

John: PAT, THE

PRESIDENT'S WHITE HOUSE

EXECUTIVE ORDER ALSO

LOOSENS LANGUAGE ON HELP

FOR CHRISTIAN REFUGEES.

THE MOVE COMES AS THE

ADMINISTRATION IS ALSO

TAKING ON A MAJOR FOREIGN

POLICY CHALLENGE.

JENNIFER WISHON BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Jennifer: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS HITTING THE RESET

BUTTON AFTER THE

PRESIDENT'S FIRST

IMMIGRATION ORDER WAS SHUT

DOWN BY A PANEL OF JUDGES.

THIS TIME THERE WAS NO FAN

FAIR, NO BIG BILL SIGNING.

INSTEAD, THE CABINET

SECRETARIES RESPONSIBLE

FOR CARRYING IT OUT

HANDLED THE DETAILS.

JEFF SESSIONS SAYS, LIKE

THE FIRST EXECUTIVE ORDER,

IT IS PERFECTLY LEGAL.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER

RERESPONSIBLY PROVIDES A

NEEDED PAUSE.

SO WE CAN CAREFULLY REVIEW

HOW WE SCRUTINIZE PEOPLE

COMING HERE FROM THESE

COUNTRIES OF CONCERN.

Jennifer: TRAVELLERS

FROM IRAN, LIBYA, SOMALIA,

SUDAN, SYRIA, AND YEMEN

ARE BANNED FROM ENTERING

THE COUNTRY FOR 90 DAYS.

IRAQ, WHICH WAS INCLUDED

IN THE FIRST ORDER, HAS

BEEN REMOVED AFTER THE

COUNTRY MADE IMPROVEMENTS

TO ITS VETTING SYSTEM.

PEOPLE TRAVELLING FOR

MEDICAL CARE OR FOREIGN

NATIONALS WORKING FOR THE

U.S. GOVERNMENT ARE FREE

TO ENTER THE COUNTRY.

THE ROLLOUT IS DELAYED

UNTIL MARCH 16th TO GIVE

TRAVELLERS AND AGENCIES A

CHANCE TO COMPLY AND TO

APPEASE THE COURTS.

WE CANNOT RISK THE

PROSPECT OF BENEVOLENT ACT

OF USING OUR IMMIGRATION

SYSTEM TO TAKE AMERICAN

LIVES.

Jennifer: SO WHAT

ABOUT CHRISTIANS AND OTHER

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES

FACING PERSECUTION?

INSTEAD OF GIVING THEM

PRIORITY, THE DEPARTMENTS

OF STATE AND HOMELAND

SECURITY HAVE BEEN GIVEN

THE POWER TO GRANT

WAIVERS.

AS BEING DENIED STATUS AS

A REFUGEE WOULD CAUSE

SOMEONE UNDO HARDSHIP,

LIKE CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS

FACING GENOCIDE AT THE

HAND OF ISIS.

THE NEW ORDER COULD FACE

CHALLENGES FROM OPPONENTS,

HOWEVER.

MEANWHILE, THE WHITE HOUSE

ISN'T SAYING MUCH ABOUT

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S CHARGE

THAT FORMER PRESIDENT

OBAMA WIRE TAPPED TRUMP

TOWER.

THEY'RE WAITING FOR THE

HOUSE AND SENATE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES TO

BEGIN THEIR

INVESTIGATIONS.

HE WAS ASKED THAT THEY

ADDITIONALLY LOOK INTO

THIS ISSUE OF LEAKS OF

CLASSIFIED AND OTHER

INFORMATION COMING FROM

THE GOVERNMENT.

HE BELIEVES THAT IT

UNDERMINES OUR NATIONAL

SECURITY.

Jennifer: AND THE

PRESIDENT IS ALSO DEALING

WITH A MAJOR TEST IN

FOREIGN POLICY.

THE GROWING THREAT OF

NORTH KOREA.

DURING THE NATION'S

BALLISTIC MISSILES TEST

THIS WEEKEND, THREE OF THE

MISSILES LANDED IN

JAPANESE WATERS.

IMAGINE ONE DAY ONE OF

THESE NORTH KOREAN

MISSILES ACCIDENTALLY

DETONATES OR HITS

SOMEWHERE IN JAPAN?

I CAN TELL YOU JAPAN WOULD

RESPOND.

IMAGINE IF THE SAME THING

HAPPENED IN SOUTH KOREA?

SOUTH KOREA WOULD RESPOND.

Jennifer: AND BOTH OF

THOSE COUNTRIES ARE U.S.

ALLIES.

ABSOLUTELY.

SO THAT WOULD DRAW THE

UNITED STATES INTO ANY

CONFLICT.

Jennifer: THIS MAN

WITH THE CENTER FOR THE

NATIONAL INTEREST EXPECTS

TO SEE NORTH KOREA LAUNCH

MORE MISSILES MORE

FREQUENTLY, AS IT WORKS TO

STRENGTHEN ITS OFFENSIVE

CAPABILITIES.

NORTH KOREA WOULD PUT

BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS OR

CHEMICAL WEAPONS AND

LAUNCH IT AT THE UNITED

STATES.

THAT WOULD HAVE A VERY,

VERY SCARY EFFECT ON THE

UNITED STATES.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A

NUCLEAR WEAPON.

Jennifer: HE SAYS KIM

JONG-UN KNOWS THE U.S.

WON'T INVADE HIS COUNTRY

AS LONG AS THEY HAS

NUCLEAR CAPABILITIES.

THE "WALL STREET JOURNAL"

REPORTS A WHITE HOUSE

REVIEW OF STRATEGIES

INCLUDES THE POSSIBILITY

OF USING MILITARY FORCE OR

REGIME CHANGE AGAINST THE

NORTH TO BLUNT ITS NUCLEAR

THREAT.

LAST WEEK A SENIOR WHITE

HOUSE OFFICIAL CALLED

NORTH KOREA THE GREATEST

THREAT FACING THE U.S.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

John: THANKS,

JENNIFER.

THE NUMBER OF NEW BABIES

HIT A RECORD LOW IN ITALY

LAST YEAR, ACCORDING TO A

REPORT BY REUTERS.

CITING GOVERNMENT

STATISTICS.

2016 SAW THE LOWEST LEVEL

OF BIRTH SINCE THE

UNIFICATION OF LITL ITALY.

OFFICIALS IN DENMARK HAVE

BEEN SO CONCERNED THEY

OFFERED SEX EDUCATION

CLASSES FOCUSED ON HAVING

BABIES RATHER THAN BIRTH

CONTROL.

AND SPAIN RECENTLY

APPOINTED A SEX CZAR TO

ENCOURAGE HAVING MORE

CHILDREN.

AND OTHER COUNTRIES, LIKE

GERMANY, HAVE ALSO FACED

LOW BIRTH RATES.

Pat: YOU KNOW, I'VE

BEEN MONITORING THIS FOR

SOME YEARS.

THE WHOLE THING IS THE

NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN THE

WORLD -- SAY THERE ARE SIX

BILLION PEOPLE IN THE

WORLD, AND EUROPE'S

PERCENTAGE OF THOSE PEOPLE

USED TO BE ABOUT, SAY,

30%.

WHICH GAVE THEM A

SIGNIFICANT VOICE.

ALL RIGHT.

NOW WE'VE GOT OVER SEVEN

BILLION PEOPLE IN THE

WORLD, AND EUROPEANS --

EUROPE'S POPULATION,

INSTEAD OF INCREASING, IS

DIMINISHING, SO THEIR

PERCENTAGE OF THE PEOPLE

IN THE WORLD HAS DROPPED

FROM, LIKE, 30% DOWN TO

PROBABLY LESS THAN 10%.

I DON'T HAVE THE EXACT

STATISTICS.

I ASKED FOR THAT, BUT I

WASN'T ABLE TO GET THEM

HERE BY THIS PROGRAM.

BUT THE IDEA IS IT IS A

TINY, TINY MINORITY.

WHICH MEANS THAT THE

INFLUENCE OF EUROPE IN THE

WORLD IS NO MORE THAN

SOUTH KOREA OR NORTH KOREA

OR -- WELL, CERTAINLY NOT

INDIA OR CHINA, WHICH HAVE

GOT HUGE POPULATIONS.

SO THEY'RE TRYING NOW --

THEY'VE BEEN TOLD THE

THING TO DO -- WOMEN WORK

AND DON'T HAVE BABIES AND

USE BIRTH CONTROL AND

ABORT BABIES RECKLESSLY --

WELL, WE'VE DONE THAT HERE

IN AMERICA.

THE THING THAT IS KEEPING

AMERICA GOING IS THE

ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF INFLUX

OF IMMIGRANTS.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE

IMMIGRANTS, AMERICA WOULD

BE IN THE SAME PLATE AS

EUROPE.

BECAUSE THE MAINTENANCE IS

ABOUT TWO BIRTHS PER 1,000

WOMEN -- WHATEVER THAT

NUMBER IS -- AND WHEN IT

BEGINS TO FALL BELOW THAT

REPLACEMENT RATE, YOUR

POPULATION BEGINS TO

SHRINK.

SO IT IS DEMOGRAPHICS,

FOLKS, DEMOGRAPHICS.

AND THE THING THAT IS

SHIFTING HERE IN AMERICA

AND IN JAPAN AND OTHER

COUNTRIES, ARE THE

COUNTRIES ARE GETTING

OLDER.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE BABIES

COMING ALONG AND THE

PERCENTAGE OF YOUNG

DIMINISHES, AND THE

PERCENTAGE OF THE OLD

GROWS.

AND THE OLD PEOPLE NEED

MORE HEALTH CARE.

THEY WANT TO RETIRE, AND

THEY NEED MORE SOCIAL

SERVICES, ETC.

SO THE POPULATION OVER 80

IS GROWING FASTER THAN ANY

OTHER PERCENTAGE.

IF THAT BORES YOU, I'M

SORRY, BUT THAT IS THE WAY

IT IS.

Terry: IT MAY BORE

YOU, BUT IT WILL AFFECT

YOU.

Pat: IT IS GOING TO

AFFECT THE DAY LIGHTS OUT

OF YOU.

WHEN I TALKED ABOUT THIS

YEARS AGO, I WAS LAUGHED

AT BY SOME OF THE

LIBERALS.

THEY SAID, YOU THINK A

WOMAN'S WOMB IS PART OF

THE NATIONAL APPARATUS.

NO, NO, NO, I DON'T THINK

THAT.

BUT IF YOU START KILLING

BABIES, AND YOU FIGURE HOW

MANY OF THEM HAVE GOT

SLAUGHTERED -- IT IS OVER

60 MILLION -- MUCH WORSE

THAN THE HOLOCAUST.

THE SLAUGHTER OF THE YOUNG

HERE IN AMERICA HAS BEEN

SHOCKING.

AND THINK OF ALL THOSE

PEOPLE, ALL OF THE

WONDERFUL THINGS THEY

COULD DO.

THEY COULD BE WRITING

SYMPHONIES.

THEY COULD BE WRITING

PLAYS.

THEY COULD BE INVENTING

NEW WAYS OF DOING THINGS.

> THETHEY COULD BE FOUNDING

BUSINESSES, BUT THEY WON'T

BE THERE BECAUSE THEY'RE

ALL GONE.

THAT'S WHAT UNLIMITED

ABORTION HAS DONE.

AND WERE IT NOT FOR

IMMIGRANTS, WE WOULD BE IN

THE SAME POSITION AS

EUROPE.

> DID I TALK TOO MUCH?

Terry: NO.

THAT'S THE BROAD LOOK THE

AT THINGS THAT PEOPLE

SOMETIMES DON'T THINK

ABOUT.

Pat: EUROPE IS NO

LONGER SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE

DEMOGRAPHICALLY THEY ARE

NO LONGER SIGNIFICANT.

AND YOU'VE GOT THE RISE OF

CHINA.

YOU'VE GOT THE RISE OF

INDIA.

YOU'VE GOT THE RISE OF

THESE MUSLIM COUNTRIES.

THEY'RE ALL MUCH, MUCH

BIGGER AND MORE

SIGNIFICANT IN THE WORLD

STAGE THAN EUROPE IS.

Terry: IT IS A

SERIOUS PROBLEM.

> WELL, 100 YEARS AGO,

IT WAS NOTHING BUT SAND IN

THE DESERT.

TODAY IT IS THE SECOND

LARGEST CITY IN ISRAEL.

AND IT IS FULFILLING

BIBLICAL PROPHECY.

THIS IS FROM THE BIBLE.

I SHALL REBUILD YOU, AND

YOU WILL BE REBUILT, OH,

PERSON OF ISRAEL.

AND AS WE STAND HERE NOW,

THE PROPHECY IS BEING

FULFILLED.

Terry: SCOTT ROSS

GIVES US THE TOUR OF TEL

AVIV.

THAT'S NEXT.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: THE WORD TELL IS

A NOUN, AND THEY'RE ON

THEIR TELLS, AND SO THEY

HAVE A NOUN.

AND ABIB IS SPRING.

SO TEL AVIV IS THE MOUND

OF SPRING.

THIS IS AN AMAZING CITY IN

ISRAEL.

THE ONE THAT IS HISTORIC

IS JERUSALEM, WHERE THEY

HAVE THE WAILING WALL AND

WHERE THEY HAVE THE

CAPITAL OF ISRAEL AND

WHERE ALL OF THOSE OFFICES

ARE.

BUT THE DYNAMIC NERVE

CENTER OF THE ISRAELIS'

ECONOMIC GROWTH IS FOUND

IN TEL AVIV.

AND PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

PROMISEDED TO MOVE THE

U.S. EMBASSY FROM THE

MOUND OF SPRING TO

JERUSALEM.

AND WHILE THE CITY OF

DAVID IS THE CENTER OF

BIBLICAL EVENTS.

TEL AVIV HAS BECOME

ISRAEL'S ECONOMIC AND

HIGH-TECH CENTER.

AND SCOTT ROSS FOUND OUT

THE BUSTLING CITY ALSO

FULFILLS BIBLICAL

PROPHECY.

Reporter: SITUATED ON

THE SHORES OF THE

MEDITERRANEAN, TEL AVIV

COULD BE DESCRIBED AS

ISRAEL'S NEW YORK CITY.

AN IN JUST OVER 100 YEARS

IT HAS BECOME ONE OF THE

LEADING START-UP CITIES.

ALL THIS WAS SAND HERE

IN 1909.

Reporter: WHAT WAS

THE VISION FOR IT?

THE VISION WAS TO

ESTABLISH IT IN MODERN

JEWISH CITIES THAT SPEAKS

THE HEBREW LANGUAGE.

THE IDEA WAS TO REALIZE

THE DREAMS, THE HOPES, THE

PROPHECIES OF OUR PROPHETS

AND THE DREAMS OF THE JEWS

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

THE MOST AMAZING THING

ABOUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS

THE FACT THAT WE KEEP

DREAMING THE SAME DREAM

WHEREVER WE ARE, THROUGH

THE CENTURIES.

Reporter: THE

LEADERS, THE PEOPLE THAT

FOUNDED TEL AVIV -- WHO

ARE THEY?

66 JEWISH FAMILIES.

THEY INHABITED THE OLD

CITY OF JAFFA.

THERE WAS NARROW WAYS AND

SEWAGE IN THE CITY -- JEWS

IN JAFFA DREAM ABOUT

BREAKING FROM THE WALLS OF

JAFFA AND ESTABLISHING A

JEWISH NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE PAID IN GOLD FOR EVERY

INCH HERE.

AND THE MONEY WAS PAID TO

MOVE.

THE OTTOMANS?

WHO ARE THE OTTOMANS.

THIS WAS REDEEMING THE

LAND OF ISRAEL.

Reporter: ISAAC DROR

IS THE EDUCATION MANAGER

OF INDEPENDENT HALL, WHERE

DAVID BEN-GURION DECLARED

ISRAEL'S STATE HOOD, AND

THE FOUNDING FATHERS

SIGNED THE DECLARATION OF

INDEPENDENCE.

WE'RE SEATED HERE IN

INDEPENDENCE HALL.

THIS IS REALLY

SIGNIFICANT.

IT IS REALLY

SIGNIFICANT.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

ISRAEL WAS BORN AND THE

PLACE WHERE TEL AVIV WAS

ESTABLISHED.

IT WAS THE HOME OF THE

FOUNDER OF TEL AVIV.

IT WAS THE FIRST ART

MUSEUM OF THE CITY.

IN THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL,

EZEKIEL LIVED IN A PLACE

CALLED TEL AVIV, A JEWISH

CITY.

A TINY JEWISH COMMUNITY IN

THE DESERT OF IRAQ.

Reporter: IN 1950,

TEL AVIV AND JAFFA MERGED

TO FORM TEL AVIV JAFAL.

TODAY IT IS ISRAEL'S

SECOND LARGEST CITY, AND

THOUGH IT IS HOME TO ALL

FOREIGN EMBASSIES, TEL

AVIV IS CLEARLY NOT THE

BIBLICAL CAPITAL OF ISRAEL

AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

THIS CITY, IN CONTRAST

TO JERUSALEM -- JERUSALEM

IS MORE OF A RELIGIOUS

ENVIRONMENT.

THIS CITY DOES NOT HAVE

TO BEAR THE HEAVY LOAD

THAT JERUSALEM IS

CARRYING.

AND TEL AVIV DOES NOT HAVE

TO CARRY ALL THIS HISTORY.

BUT TEL AVIV IS VERY, VERY

SPECIAL IN A DIFFERENT

WAY.

Reporter: ISRAEL'S

FOUNDERS SENSEDED THEY

WERE FULL FILLING

PROPHECY.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY,

SURROUNDED BY CONSTRUCTION

CRANES, ONE MONUMENT SAYS

IT ALL.

THIS SAYS, "I SHALL

REBUILD YOU, AND YOU WILL

BE BUILT, O VIRGIN OF

ISRAEL."

THIS IS THE MODEL FOR

THOSE WHO ESTABLISHED TEL

AVIV.

Reporter: AND AS WE

STAND HERE NOW, THE

PROPHECIES ARE BEING

FULFILLED RIGHT IN FRONT

OF YOUR EYES.

RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR

EYES.

IT IS THE FIRST TIME IN

2,000 YEARS THAT THE

JEWISH PEOPLE, BUILDING

THE JEWISH LAND, SPEAKING

HEBREW WITH THE BIBLE IN

THEIR HANDS IN THE LAND OF

ISRAEL.

Reporter: TODAY TEL

AVIV IS ANNOYED AS SILICON

WADI.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT TEL AVIV

THAT SO MUCH CREATIVITY

AND INNOVATIVENESS HAS

COME OUT OF THIS AREA?

THERE ARE MORE THAN 700

START-UP COMPANIES

CONCENTRATED IN THIS CITY.

THERE IS VENTURE CAPITAL

THAT IS BEING INVESTED IN

ISRAEL.

WHICH IS THE HIGHEST PER

CAPITA IN THE WORLD.

COMBINED WITH ISRAEL'S

CULTURE AND CIRCUMSTANCES

HAVE MADE TEL AVIV WHAT IT

IS TODAY, THE SECOND

SILICON VALLEY IN THE

WORLD.

Reporter: BEN SHAHAR

GAVE US A MODERN

COMPARISON TO TEL AVIV.

I THINK THE WHOLE

VENTURE OF ISRAEL IS A

START-UP VENTURE.

Reporter: TEL AVIV

HAS THE THIRD LARGEST

ECONOMY IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

IT IS NOT ALL

THEATRICAL.

IT AFFECTS OUR LIVES EVERY

DAY.

I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.

YESTERDAY I WAS CHATTING

WITH MY WIFE ON

Facebook, USING

TECHNOLOGY WHICH WAS

DEVELOPED HERE IN ISRAEL.

I CAME HERE USING WAYS,

WHICH IS A COMMUNITY BASED

NAVIGATION AND G.P.S.

SYSTEM THAT SAVES ME

DOZENS OF HOURS EVERY

MONTH.

I PARKED USING AN APP THAT

ALLOWS ME TO PARK WHEREVER

I WANT WITHOUT ANY

DIFFICULTY.

Reporter: I ASKED

SOME TEL AVIV RESIDENTS

WHY THEY LIVE HERE AND

WHAT THE CITY MEANS TO

THEM.

THE ARCHITECTURE IS

VERY NICE.

IT IS THE BEST CITY.

YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU

WANT.

YOU CAN EAT WHATEVER YOU

WANT.

YOU HAVE THE BEACH, OF

COURSE, WHERE YOU CAN GO.

I THINK THE PEOPLE ARE

AMAZING.

Reporter: YOU LIKE

THE LIFE HERE?

YEAH.

I LIKE THE WAY THAT PEOPLE

ARE OPEN-MINDED, AND THIS

IS A CREATIVE PLACE HERE.

WHICH IS COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT THAN IN PARIS

AND COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

THAN IN THE U.S.

IT IS THE MOST EXCITING

CITY IN ISRAEL.

EVERYTHING HAPPENS HERE.

Reporter: EVERYONE IS

TELLING ME HERE.

ALL OF THE CULTURAL

ACTIVITIES ARE HAPPENING

HERE.

TEL AVIV IS THE CENTER

OF ISRAEL, OF BUSINESS, OF

LIFE, OF FAMILIES, OF REAL

ESTATE, OF EVERYTHING.

Reporter: I ASKED BEN

ABOUT THE FUTURE OF TEL

AVIV.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO

EXPLODE.

NOT LITERALLY.

IT IS GOING TO EXPLODE,

THE AMOUNT OF HIGH-TECH

COMPANIES, THE AMOUNT OF

INNOVATION THAT ARE

DEVELOPED HERE, THAT ARE

CRUCIAL TO MAKING THE

WORLD A BETTER PLACE, ARE

GOING TO COME OUT OF TEL

AVIV.

AND MORE RESEARCH AND MORE

FUNDING IS GOING TO COME

INTO THIS CITY AND

HOPEFULLY CREATE A BETTER

FUTURE, NOT JUST FOR JEWS,

BUT FOR CHRISTIANS,

MUSLIMS, BUDDHISTS AROUND

THE WORLD.

Reporter: FOR CBN

NEWS, I'M SCOTT ROSS IN

TEL AVIV.

Pat: THAT'S

FASCINATING.

I WAS THERE.

I'VE BEEN THERE A NUMBER

OF TIMES.

IT'S A FASCINATING CITY.

BUT IT HAS GROWN SO

DRAMATICALLY.

I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE SOME OF

THOSE BOULEVARDS THAT HAVE

BEEN BUILT.

Terry: TO THINK THAT

ALL HAPPENED IN THE LAST

100 YEARS.

Pat: AND MOST

HAPPENED IN THE LAST 10

YEARS.

I MET SHIMON PERES WHEN HE

OFFICE WAS IN TEL AVIV,

BUT IT WAS A LITTLE

RUNDOWN AREA, AND IT IS

DRAMATIC.

THE HIGH-TECH COMPANIES --

ISRAEL IS LEADING THE

WORLD IN TECHNICAL.COM. TECHNICAL

CAPABILITIES.

I WAS TRAVELLING ALL OF

THESE NEW PLACES AROUND

THE WORLD.

I BASICALLY SAID, I'M

GOING TO GO OFF AND DO

THIS AND I WENT FOR IT.

Terry: SNOWBOARDING

CHAMP ANDY LYNCH LOOKS

BACK AT HIS BIGGEST FALL,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: IN

SNOWBOARDING, ONE WRONG

MOVE AND ONE SPLIT SECOND

CAN MEAN THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN A PRETTY AWESOME

TRICK AND A PRETTY NASTY

WIPEOUT.

SO WHEN SNOWBOARDERS ARE

ON THE SLOPES, THEY NEED

TO BE COMPLETELY FOCUSED.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR OLYMPIAN

ANDY FINCH, THAT WASN'T

THE CASE BECAUSE HE SPENT

YEARS BEING DISTRACTED BY

HIS OWN THOUGHTS.

TO UN UNDERSTAND WHAT I

LOVE ABOUT SNOWBOARDING

GOES BACK TO WHEN I WAS A

KID.

I LOVE TO FLY.

I LIKE JUMPING OUT OF

TREES, OFF FENCES, OFF

ROOFS.

AND WHEN YOU'RE IN THE AIR

ON A SNOWBOARD, GRAVITY IS

PRETTY MUCH GONE.

OR AT LEAST UNTIL YOU HIT,

AND THEN THAT KIND OF

HURTS SOMETIMES.

Reporter: ANDREW

FINCH WAS 12 WHEN HIS DAD

TOOK HIM TO THE SLOPES FOR

A DAY OF SNOWBOARDING AS

AN AWARD FOR GOOD GRADES.

WHEN HE SAW WHAT THE OTHER

SNOWBOARDERS WERE DOING,

HE WAS HOOKED.

WHAT REALLY CAPTURED ME

WAS WHEN SOMEONE FLIED OFF

THE ROLLER.

AND I WAS, LIKE, DAD,

THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO DO.

Reporter: LIVING JUST

DOWN THE ROAD FROM A SKI

RESORT, ANDY SPENT HOURS

ON THE SLOPES.

EVENTUALLY HE STARTED

COMPETING.

I THINK WITHIN THREE OR

FOUR YEARS I WON A

NATIONAL TITLE.

AND THEN I STARTED GETTING

SPONSORS.

AND I BEGAN MEETING PEOPLE

AND GETTING NOTICED.

I KEPT WINNING BIGGER AND

BIGGER EVENTS.

I WON JUNIOR WORLDS.

AND THEN I GOT THROWN ON

TOUR.

Reporter: IN 1998, HE

TURNED PRO AT 17 YEARS

OLD.

HE HIT ALL OF THE MAJOR

TOUR STOPS, FROM THE WORLD

CUP TO THE WINTER

OLYMPICS.

I HAD GOLD IN MY

CAREER.

AND I WANTED TO BE KNOWN

AS ONE OF OF TH THE BEST.

Reporter: BUT THE

WIDE-OPEN STYLE OF A PRO

SNOWBOARDER PULLED HIM

AWAY FROM HIS CHRISTIAN

UPBRINGING.

I WAS TRAVELLING ALL OF

THESE NEW PLACES AROUND

THE WORLD.

AND WHAT COMES WITH

FREEDOM?

PARTYING.

AND YOU CAN BLOW MONEY AT

WILL.

I THINK AS FAR AS WHAT I

WAS TELLING MYSELF, I WAS

LYING TO MYSELF.

I WAS LYING TO MYSELF THAT

EVERYONE DOES THIS.

THAT WAS KIND OF A TURNING

POINT WHERE I TURNED MY

BACK ON GOD.

EVEN THOUGH I BELIEVE HE

EXISTED.

I BELIEVED JESUS DIED FOR

MY SINS, BUT I BASICALLY

SAID, I'M GOING TO GO OFF

AND DO THIS.

Reporter: HE PARTIED

AS HARD AS HE COMPETED.

AND HE BECAME SEXUALLY

ACTIVE.

THE NEXT YEAR, WHO TOOK A

40-FOOT FALL ON A QUARTER

PIKE RUN, BADLY INJURING

HIS KNEE.

AT THE AGE OF 18, I HAD

MY FIRST MAJOR INJURY.

IT WAS AFTER I DECIDED TO

BE SEXUALLY ACTIVE.

Reporter: AFTER

SURGERY, ANDY TOOK A YEAR

TO RECOVER BEFORE

RETURNING TO COMPETITION.

BUT NOW HE WAS FINDING IT

DIFFICULT TO KEEP HIS HEAD

IN THE GAME.

BUT I STILL WAS ABLE TO

JUST IGNORE IT.

I WAS STILL ABLE TO FIND

MY SUPPORT GROOVE, GO TO

MY COACHES AND TALK

THROUGH STUFF, AND FIGURE

OUT MY GAME PLAN AND STICK

WITH MY STRATEGY.

THAT WASN'T WHAT TURNED ME

FROM MY SIN.

Reporter: ANDY

MANAGED TO PUSH THOSE

NAGGING THOUGHTS ASIDE FOR

ANOTHER FIVE YEARS AS HIS

LIFE REVOLVED AROUND

SNOWBOARDERING, PARTYING,

AND SEX.

THAT IS IN HE STARTED TO

SEE HOW HIS ACTIONS WERE

HURTING OTHERS.

ALL OF A SUDDEN SO MANY

DIFFERENT THINGS WAS

STARTED TO MAKE SEX NOT

THAT GREAT.

ACTUALLY, IT REALLY

STARTED TO TORTURE ME.

AND ALONG THAT LINE, I

STARTED TO SEE A COUPLE OF

GIRLS I HAD REALLY LIKED,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I SAW

HOW I WAS USING THEM AND

DESTROYING THEIR LIVES,

REALLY MESSING WITH THEIR

HEADS.

I SAW THAT DESTRUCTION.

Reporter: THE

2003/2004 TURNED OUT TO BE

ANDY'S BEST, AND HE WAS

MAKING MORE MONEY THAN HE

EVER HAD.

BUT COME SEPTEMBER, HE

COULD NO LONGER IGNORE THE

FEELINGS OF GUILT THAT

WERE FORCING THEIR WAY TO

THE SURFACE.

ALL RIGHT, GOD, THIS IS

YOUR DEAL.

I KNOW I STILL WANT TO

LIVE THAT LIFESTYLE, I

KNOW I STILL WANT TO DO

THOSE THINGS, BUT I KNOW

THE TEMPTATIONS AND I'M

TOO WEAK.

SO THIS IS YOUR DEAL.

IT HAS GOT TO BE YOU THAT

CHANGES MY LIFE, THAT

CHANGES MY HEART, THAT

GIVES ME STRENGTH TO TURN

FROM THESE TEMPTATIONS.

Reporter: ANDY HANDED

HIS LIFE OVER TO JESUS

CHRIST, AND TRUSTED WITH

HIS HELP HE COULD CHANGE.

ALL RIGHT, GOD, THIS IS

YOURS.

YOUR A SOVEREIGN GOD OF

ALL AUTHORITY, WHAT DO YOU

WANT TO DO WITH MY LIFE.

BECAUSE WHAT I'M DOING IS

NOT WORKING.

Reporter: AS ANDREI ANDY

READ THE BIBLE, HE FOUND

THE STRENGTH TO PUT THAT

LIFESTYLE BEHIND HIM.

GOD SEES ME AS THE

GLORY OF JESUS.

JESUS CAME AND DID WHAT NO

ONE ELSE COULD DO.

SO THAT'S PRETTY RAD.

IT'S SOMETHING I CAN'T

EVEN COMPREHEND FULLY, BUT

EVEN JUST A LITTLE BIT IS

WORTH IT.

Reporter: ANDY EARNED

A SPOT ON TEAM U.S.A. FOR

THE 2006 WINTER OLYMPICS.

HE ALSO MARRIED AMBER THAT

YEAR, AND TOGETHER THEY'RE

RAISING A FAMILY.

SNOWBOARDING IS STILL A

BIG PART OF ANDY'S LIFE,

BUT TODAY HE SEES IT AS A

WAY TO SHARE WHAT JESUS

CHRIST HAS DONE FOR HIM.

AS GOOD AS I TRY AND

BE, I'M STILL A SINNER.

I KNOW MENTALLY THE THINGS

I STRUGGLE WITH NOW, BUT I

UNDERSTAND THAT GOD HAS A

LOVE FOR ME THAT IS GOING

TO -- HE SEES ME AS

PERFECT.

ONLY BECAUSE OF JESUS, NOT

BECAUSE OF ANYTHING I DID.

I DESIRE TO BE OBEDIENT TO

HIM.

Terry: GOD'S WORD

SAYS THAT ALL OF US HAVE

SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF

THE GLORY OF GOD.

BUT SEEING ANDY'S STORY, I

JUST WANT TO SPEAK TO

THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW WHO

JESUS IS, WHO KNOW THE

SACRIFICE THAT HE MADE,

WHO UNDERSTAND THAT HE

LOVES YOU BEYOND YOUR

IMAGINING, KNEW YOU BEFORE

YOU WERE BORN, HAD A PLAN

AND A PURPOSE FOR YOUR

LIFE.

AND YOU'VE KIND OF DABBLED

WITH THAT.

YOU KNOW, YOU CAME TO

JESUS AT A YOUNG AGE, AND

THEN, KIND OF LIKE ANDY,

LIFE HAPPENED AND ALL OF

THESE DOORS OPENED TO YOU,

ALL OF THESE, QUOTE,

"OPPORTUNITIES," AND WITH

IT ALL OF THE STUFF THAT

COMES INTO YOUR LIFE THAT

WOOS YOU AWAY FROM THE

HEART OF GOD.

HERE IS THE GREAT NEWS:

YOU CAN COME HOME.

YOU CAN COME HOME.

I THINK OF THE PRODIGAL

SON WHO LEFT HIS FATHER'S

HOUSE, WHO LEFT ALL OF THE

GOODNESS THAT WAS THERE,

ALL OF THE PROVISION THAT

WAS THERE FOR HIM, SOMEONE

WHO WENT OUT INTO THE

WORLD AND SLEPT WITH THE

PIGS, ULTIMATELY.

LISTEN, WHEN HE WAS COMING

BACK, H IT SAYS THE FATHER

RAN TO RECEIVE HIM BECAUSE

HE HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR

HIM.

HE WAS WAITING FOR HIM,

HOPING FOR HIM TO COME

BACK HOME.

TODAY THAT IS GOD'S HEART

FOR YOU.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU'VE

BEEN, NO MATTER WHAT

YOU'VE DONE, GOD IS

SAYING, COME HOME, SON.

COME HOME, DAUGHTER.

YOU SEE THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST COVERS ALL OF THAT.

TODAY I JUST WANT TO SAY

TO YOU, NO MATTER WHERE

YOU'VE BEEN, NO MATTER

WHAT YOU'VE DONE, RECEIVE

FORGIVENESS TODAY.

RECEIVE A NEW BEGINNING.

RECEIVE THE POWER TO LIVE

DIFFERENTLY.

THAT'S WHAT GOD OFFERS TO

YOU.

WILL YOU RECEIVE IT?

WILL YOU COME FREE FROM

ALL THAT HAS ENTANGLED

YOU?

YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART,

JUST LIKE ANDY DID, YOU

CAN IGNORE IT FOR THE

LONGEST TIME.

BUT IN THE END, TRUTH WILL

GET YOU.

TRUTH WILL ALSO SET YOU

FREE.

SO TODAY RECEIVE THE

TRUTH, THAT YOU ARE

CREATED IN THE IMAGE AND

LIKENESS OF GOD.

WITH ETERNITY IN MIND.

WITH A FATHER WHO LOVES

YOU BEYOND YOUR SIN, LOVES

YOU BEYOND YOUR NEED, AND

IS WILLING TO COVER ALL OF

THAT WITH HIS POWER, WITH

HIS MERCY, WITH HIS GRACE.

STEP BACK IN.

STEP BACK IN TO WHO YOU

ARE IN CHRIST.

TODAY LIFT UP YOUR HANDS

AND SAY, GOD, I AM SO

SORRY.

I HAVE RUN FROM YOU.

I HAVE RUN, JESUS, FROM

YOUR SACRIFICE.

I HAVE RUN FROM SURRENDER.

AND TODAY I'M COMING HOME

TO YOU, SAYING, GOD, TAKE

MY LIFE.

I WANT TO DO WHAT ANDY

DID.

IT'S ON YOU, GOD.

I'M GIVING YOU MY LIFE.

YOU SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE.

YOU SHOW ME HOW TO BE IN

YOU, HOW TO ALLOW YOU TO

BE ALIVE AND IN ME.

FILL ME WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT.

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

IN JESUS' NAME I PRAY.

AMEN.

LISTEN, SOME OF YOU HAVE

SPECIFIC NEEDS YOU WOULD

LIKE TO PRAY ABOUT.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW OU

TOLL-FREE PRAYER LINE IS

OPEN AND AVAILABLE TO YOU.

IT IS THERE ON YOUR

SCREEN: 1-800-700-7000.

JUST CALL.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO

GIVE US YOUR NAME.

JUST TELL US WHAT YOU

WOULD LIKE TO PRAY ABOUT.

DON'T WALK AWAY FROM THE

ONLY LOVE THAT MATTERS AND

THE ONLY FORGIVENESS THAT

IS AVAILABLE, AND THE ONLY

POWER THAT CAN TRULY,

TRULY SET YOU FREE.

PAT?

Pat: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

FOLKS, AS YOU'RE CALLING,

THAT NUMBER IS AVAILABLE.

BE SURE YOU CALL AND TELL

WHAT GOD HAS DONE.

> STILL AHEAD, IT IS

TIME TO "BRING IT ON" WITH

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

ONE VIEWER SAYS, "I'M

LEAVING MY HUSBAND BECAUSE

HE IS ABUSIVE."

WELL, HE HAS REALLY BEATEN

HER UP.

"AM I DISHONORING THE

LORD?"

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO

ANSWER THAT QUESTION AND

MORE.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TOG "THE 700 CLUB."

THE SUPREME COURT

SOCIALIST REFUSING TISREFUSING TO HEAR THE CASE

OF ANDREW GRIM.

HE WANTED TO BE ABLE TO

CHOOSE WHICH BATHROOM TO

USE.

A LOWER COURT IN VIRGINIA

WILL NOW MAKE THE

DECISION.

IT CHANGED AFTER THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION WITHDREW

THE TRANSGENDER POLICY

IMPLEMENTED BY PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

> THE MILITARY HAS

ANNOUNCED PLANS TO HIRE

THE FIRST DIVISION LEVEL

MUSLIM CHAPLAIN.

ARMY LIEUTENANT KHALID

CABAS IS ONE OF ONLY 10

MUSLIM CHAPLAINS IN THE

U.S. MILITARY.

HE WILL BE THE SPIRITUAL

LEADER OF MORE THAN 14,000

SOLDIERS, MOST OF WHOM ARE

CHRISTIAN.

HE WILL BE THE CHAPLAIN OF

THE ARMY'S SEVENTH

INFANTRY DIVISION.

HE WAS RAISED A DEVOUT

LUTHERAN AND CONVERTED TO

ISLAM IN HIS EARLY 20s.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS

GET THE LATEST FROM CBN

NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH SOME OF

THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS

YOU'VE SENT IN.

THIS FIRST ONE COMES FROM

A VIEWER WHO SAYS, "HI,

PAT.

I WATCH FROM AFRICA EVERY

DAY.

I'M IN THE PROCESS OF

DIVORCING MY HUSBAND OF

FIVE YEARS BECAUSE HE IS

ABUSIVE.

HE BEATS ME AND CURSES AT

ME, AND I CAN'T TAKE IT

ANYMORE.

I KNOW GOD SAYS DIVORCE IS

BAD.

AM I DOING WRONG BEFORE

GOD BY LEAVING HIM?"

Pat: MY FEELING IS

THIS: IF AN UNBELIEVER IS

PLEASED TO LEAVE A

BELIEVER, ACCORDING TO

WHAT IS CALLED "THE

PAULINE PRIVILEGE," THE

BELIEVER IS NOT BOUND IN

THAT CASE.

I DON'T WANT TO PLAY

PHILADELPHIA LAWYER, BUT I

DO BELIEVE THAT WE CAN

CALL YOUR CASE

CONSTRUCTIVE DESERTION.

THAT MAN IS MAKING IT

IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO LIVE

WITH HIM.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SUFFER

A LIFETIME OF PHYSICAL

ABUSE, OF CURSING AND

MENTAL ABUSE AND ALL OF

THE REST OF IT.

WE USED TO TALK ABOUT

INTOLERABLE CRUELTY.

I REALLY BELIEVE AT THAT

POINT HE IS MAKING IT

IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO

LIVE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO

JEOPARDIZE YOUR LIFE IN

ORDER TO BE MARRIED.

SO YOU'RE NOT SINNING

AGAINST THE LORD TO LEAVE.

AND IN MY OPINION, YOU

WOULD BE FREE TO, YOU

KNOW, REMARRY.

THAT'S THE PAULINE

PRIVILEGE.

YOU CAN MAKE THAT THE PAT

EDITION.

Terry: GEORGE SAYS,

"WHEN THE HOSTS GIVE THE,

QUOTE, "WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE," FOR PEOPLE ALL

AROUND THE WORLD, DO THEY

ACTUALLY SAY THOSE THINGS

AT THAT MOMENT?

OR DO THEY KNOW ABOUT THE

REQUESTS BEFOREHAND AND

SIMPLY PRAY FOR PEOPLE'S

HEALING?"

Pat: WE DO KNOW ABOUT

REQUESTS BEFOREHAND, BUT

THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKS TO

US AND WE SPEAK THE WORD.

SOMETIMES IT APPLIES TO

ONE IN THE AUDIENCE, AND

SOMETIMES MANY.

WE HOPE WE'RE LISTENING TO

THE LORD AND WHAT WE SPEAK

IS THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSE

WE SEE SOME VERY DRAMATIC

ANSWERS TO PRAYER.

WE DON'T KNOW IN ADVANCE.

IT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THAT'S THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

IT'S SUPERNATURAL.

Terry: RONALD SAYS,

"WE JUST HEARD THAT OUR

TITHING SHOULD BE ON THE

NET INCOME FROM OUR

BUSINESS AND NOT THE

GROSS.

IS THIS CORRECT?

AND IF SO, WE HAVE TITHED

ON THE GROSS FOR THE LAST

TWO YEARS.

IS IT APPROPRIATE TO

RECOUP SOME OF THAT EXCESS

TITHE O OVE BY REDUCING THIS

YEAR'S TITHE?"

Pat: GOD IS NOT A

WALL STREET ACCOUNTANT.

HE IS NOT KEEPING SCORE.

I WAS JIM BAKKER, AND WE

WERE DISCUSSING THE TAX

LAW.

AND WE WERE DISCUSSING

WHETHER THE TAX SHOULD

APPLY TO THE GROSS OR THE

NET, AND WHETHER GIVING

SHOULD BE FROM THE GOS GROSS

OR THE NET.

AND HE SAID RONALD REAGAN

FEELS IT SHOULD BE FROM

THE GROSS.

THAT'S THE LAW.

LISTEN, YOU GIVE AS THE

LORD BLESSES YOU.

AND THE BLESSING OF GOD IS

THERE.

AND, YOU KNOW, AS THE LORD

HAS BLESSED YOU, EVEN SO

YOU GIVE OUT OF A PART OF

ABUNDANCE.

THE TITHE, IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, IT IS JUST A --

WELL, IT IS A 10th, AND

IT IS ONE WAY OF JUDGING.

WAS THAT FROM THE GROSS OR

THE NET?

WELL, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,

IF YOU'RE RUNNING A

GROCERY STORE, YOUR GROSS

INCOME WOULD PROBABLY BE

3% OF TOTAL SALES.

SO IF YOU GAVE FROM THE

GROSS, YOU WOULD BE GOING

BROKE.

SO YOU HAVE TO, IN THAT

CASE, TITHE OUT OF THE NET

PROFIT, WHICH WOULD BE 3%

OF THE GROSS.

BEYOND THAT, HEY, DO WHAT

GOD SHOWS YOU TO DO AND

DON'T WORRY ABOUT TAKING

YOUR CHANGE BACK.

LEAVE IT THERE, AND SAY,

GOD, TAKE IT AND USE IT.

Terry: THANK YOU FOR

GIVING IT TO ME.

Pat: YEAH, THANK YOU

FOR GIVING IT TO ME AND

NOW IT IS YOURS.

Terry: A YOU'RE SAID,

"WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO NAME

YOUR TELEVISION SHOW "THE

700 CLUB"?

Pat: IN THE EARLY,

EARLY DAYS, WE HAD A

BUDGET OF ABOUT $300,000,

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

I FIGURED WE NEEDED 700

PEOPLE TO GIVE $10 A MONTH

TO MEET OUR BUDGET.

THAT WOULD BE $7,000 A

MONTH.

SO WE ASKED FOR 700 PEOPLE

TO GIVE $10 A MONTH.

AND WE CALLED IT "THE 700

CLUB."

AND LATER ON GOD MOVED IN

AND BLESSED US AND WE HAD

WONDERFUL THINGS

HAPPENING, AND WE KEPT THE

NAME.

THAT'S WHERE IT CAME FROM.

Terry: NANCY SAYS,

"MY HUSBAND HAS CLINICAL

NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY

DISORDER, WHICH MEANS HE

IS TWO PEOPLE.

ONE THE WORLD SEES, AND

THE SECOND THAT ONLY I

KNOW ABOUT.

WE'VE BEEN MARRIED 35

YEARS AND ARE NOW

SEPARATED.

HE CLAIMS TO BE A BELIEVER

AND TO LOVE ME DEARLY, AND

HE SAYS HE WANTS ME BACK,

THOUGH PRIVATELY HE

RIDICULES ME AND SHOWS NO

AFFECTION.

HE HAS BEEN CAUGHT IN

ADDICTION TO PORN, HAS

COMMITTED ADULTERY A

NUMBER OF TIMES, AND HAS A

CHILD OUTSIDE OF OUR

FAMILY.

BUT HE PRETENDS TO BE JOHN

WALTON TO EVERYONE ULS.

ELSE.

CAN SOMEONE REALLY B CLAIM

TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND BE A

LYING, BACK STABBING -" --

Pat: BOY, SHE REALLY

LOVES HIM.

YOU SAY HE HAS TWO

PERSONALITIES.

MAYBE ONE OF THEM WILL

COME TO THE LORD, BUT

YOU'RE OUT OF IT, SO WHY

DON'T YOU LEAVE IT ALONE.

YOU'RE SEPARATED AND YOU

HAVE EVERY GROUND TO BE

SEPARATED BECAUSE HE HAS

COMMITTED ADULTERY AND HAS

HAD A CHILD OUT OF

WEDLOCK -- JUST LET IT GO,

HONEY, AND GET ON WITH

YOUR LIFE.

DON'T WORRY IF HE IS GOING

TO HEAVEN -- LEAVE THAT IN

GOD'S HANDS.

LEAVE.

Terry: THAT'S IT FOR

"BRING IT ON" FOR TODAY.

Pat: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

> OKAY, THE QUESTION:

BOYS WILL BE BOYS.

GET A GROUP OF THEM

TOGETHER AND MISCHIEF IS

ALL BUT GUARANTEED.

FOR LARRY PIERSON, THAT

MISCHIEF WITH HIS FRIENDS

LEFT HIM IN PAIN FOR MORE

THAN 60 YEARS.

Reporter: FOR MORE

THAN 60 YEARS, LARRY

PIERSON LIVED WITH PAIN IN

HIS JAW.

IT STARTED WHEN HE WAS 10

YEARS OLD.

SO WE'RE HAVING A

SNOWBALL FIGHT.

AND ONE OF THE FELLOWS,

UNBEE KNOWNUNBE KNOWNST TO ME DECIDED

TO THROW A SNOWBALL AT A

CAR.

AND HE ALMOST CRASHED.

HE CAME RUNNING UP.

HE SAW A GANG OF KIDS, AND

THEY ALL SCATTERED, EXCEPT

ONE.

AND THE NEXT THING I KNOW,

THIS HUGE GUY PICKED ME UP

AND HIT ME SQUARE ACROSS

THE JAW.

Reporter: LARRY NEVER

TOLD HIS PARENTS BECAUSE

HE WAS AFRAID HE WOULD GET

IN TROUBLE.

IN THE YEARS THAT

FOLLOWED, HIS JAW WOULD

CONSTANTLY POP OUT OF

PLACE AND HURT WHEN HE

ATE.

THE PAIN WAS VERY

SHARP.

IT GOT YOUR ATTENTION,

BELIEVE ME.

I HAD TO BE VERY CAREFUL

HOW I ATE OR HOW I YAWNED.

I USED TO KEEP MY MOUTH

CLOSED WHEN I YAWNED.

I COULDN'T DO A NORMAL

YAWN.

IT WOULD POP EVERY TIME

'DID THAT.

ReporterIDID THAT.

Reporter: IN 2015,

WHILE BEING FITTED FOR

DENTURES, LARRY FOUND OUT

THAT HIS JAW WAS BROKEN.

I HAD FORGOTTEN ALL

ABOUT IT.

I ASSUMED ALL THESE YEARS

THAT IT WAS A PROBLEM WITH

MY WISDOM TEETH.

WHEN I GOT MY TEETH UT FOR

THOUTFOR THE DENTURES, IT

REALLY STARTED SHOWING UP.

MY JAW WOULD KIND OF

CLENCH UP AT NIGHT, AND I

WOULD WAKE UP IN A LOT OF

PAIN.

Reporter: LARRY TOOK

TYLENOL TO EASE HIS

DISCOMFORT, AND FOR A TIME

PRAYED FOR HEALING.

THE THOUGHT CAME TO ME,

AND I BELIEVE IT IS FROM

GOD, IT IS NOT MY JOB TO

PRAY FOR MYSELF.

IT IS TO PRAY FOR OTHER

PEOPLE.

IN FACT, WHEN I WATCHED

"THE 700 CLUB," WHEN

THEY'RE OFFERING PRAYER

FOR PEOPLE, THAT'S WHAT I

WOULD DO.

Reporter: WHICH IS

WHAT LARRY WAS DOING ONE

MORNING IN 2016.

Gordon: LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE COME TOGETHER.

AND WE COME TOGETHER IN

UNANIMITY.

I WAS PRAYING WITH

THEM, AND I THINK IT WAS

TERRY WHO HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR JAW.

IT IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

I THOUGHT, WELL, GEE,

THAT'S NICE, BECAUSE I

KNEW WHAT PAIN IN THE JAW

WAS.

I JUST KEPT PRAYING FOR

THAT PERSON.

Reporter: LATER THAT

DAY, WHILE EATING A SNACK,

LARRY REALIZED THAT HE WAS

THAT PERSON.

I THOUGHT, WOW, THAT

FEELS PRETTY GOOD.

AND THEN I TRIED OPENING

MY MOUTH AND WIGGLING IT

AROUND AND ALL, AND THE

PAIN IS GONE.

THE LORD HEALED ME.

Reporter: AFTER 63

YEARS, LARRY WAS FINALLY

PAIN-FREE AND HAS BEEN

EVER SINCE.

I GET IN GOD'S GOOD

TIME, THINGS CAME TOGETHER

JUST RIGHT, AND HE JUST

LET ME KNOW THAT HE IS

THERE.

HE'S ALWAYS THERE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, GOD

LOOKS DOWN FROM HEAVEN.

HE SEES US.

HE KNOWS US.

HE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE.

HE KNOWS WHERE YOU LIVE.

HE KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT

YOU.

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN

HIDE FROM HIM, SO DON'T

TRY.

SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE

STRAIGHTFORWARD AND HONEST

AND TELL HIM TODAY.

HE NOTICES YOUR SUFFERING

AND HE FEELS A COMPASSION

FOR YOU.

NOW, WE HAVE AN ANSWER

HERE.

MARY LIVES IN FORT

CAMPBELL, KENTUCKY.

THEY'VE GOT A BIG ARMY

BASE THERE.

AND SHE LIVED WITH A

SEVERE CASE OF ACID

REFLUX.

SHE HAD PAIN EVERY DAY.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

AND, TERRY, YOU HAD A

WORD.

YOU SAID, "YOU HAVE AN

INTESTINAL PROBLEM.

EVERY TIME YOU EAT, YOUR

ABDOMEN SWELLS AND YOU

FEEL TERRIBLE."

AS MARY WAS LISTENING TO

TERRY, SHE FELT A BURNING

SENSATION LEAVE HER BODY.

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD, AND

THE NEXT DAY IT WAS GONE,

AND NO MORE ACID REFLUX.

Terry: WOW, PRAISE

GOD.

> THIS IS BENNY WHO

LIVES IN NORTH CAROLINA.

HE DEVELOPED PROBLEMS

SWALLOWING.

HIS DOCTOR GAVE HIM

MEDICATION, BUT THE

PROBLEM WENT ON.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, PAT,

YOU GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID CTRL+I YO "YOU HAVE

SOMETHING LIKE DIPHTHERIA,

AND YOUR THROAT IS

SWELLING UP.

HE FELT A CHARGE FROM HIS

WAIST TO HIS HEAD, AND HIS

PROBLEM WAS COMPLETELY

GONE."

Pat: I CAN'T TOUCH

BENNY, BUT GOD CAN TOUCH

HIM.

THE POWER OF GOD IS

EVERYWHERE.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS AND BELIEVE GOD

TOGETHER.

FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME,

HOW WE THANK YOU FOR THESE

REPORTS.

HOW WE THANK YOU FOR THE

GREAT POWER OF GOD.

HOW WE THANK YOU, LORD,

YOU BROUGHT A NATION OUT

OF THE DESERT.

WE SAW THAT EARLIER TODAY.

THANK YOU, LORD FOR THE

POWER OF GOD.

THANK YOU, GOD, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

SOMEBODY HAS A TWISTED

INTESTINE.

THIS IS SERIOUS.

AND YOU'RE IN SERIOUS

TROUBLE.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS REACHING

DOWN AND STRAIGHTENING

THAT OUT AND HEALING THAT

INTESTINE.

YOU'LL FEEL LIKE FIRE IN

YOUR INSIDE.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: AND SOMEONE,

YOU HAVE RECURRING

A-FIB,

AND YOU'LL KNOW IT'S YOU

BECAUSE IT'S NOT COMING

BACK.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Pat: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE PALSY -- YOUR

HANDS ARE SHAKING.

RIGHT NOW THE SHAKING IS

STOPPING.

YOU'RE COMPLETELY HEALED.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A BREAK IN THAT

LOWER PART OF YOUR CALF,

AND IT JUST ISN'T HEALING

WELL FOR YOU.

NO MATTER WHAT THEY TRY TO

DO.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW, AND YOUR

BONE WILL BE COMPLETELY

STRENGTHENED AND NORMAL

AGAIN.

Pat: AND MAY THE

PEACE OF GOD COME DOWN ON

YOU.

LORD, WE PRAY FOR THIS

NATION, GIVE US PEACE AND

GIVE US REC SILL NATION.

RECONCILIATION.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE TAKEN FROM

THE BOOK OF JAMES: "PRAY

FOR ONE ANOTHER, THAT YOU

MAY BE HEALED.

THE AFFECTIVE FERVENT

PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN

AVAILS MUCH."

> TOMORROW, A FORMER

RUSSIAN SPY GIVES US HIS

TAKE ON DONALD TRUMP.

HOW INTERESTING.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
