The 700 Club - April 6, 2017

Is a judge being forced off the bench because of his Christian beliefs? He’s looking forward to his day in court. Plus, CBN Sports sits down with San Diego Padres All-Star first baseman Wil Myers. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING

UP...COULD THIS JUDGE BE

FORCED OFF THE BENCH

BECAUSE OF HIS CHRISTIAN

BELIEFS?

IT WAS LIKE THROWING

THE KITCHEN SINK AT

SOMEBODY.

Wendy: HEAR WHY HE IS

LOOKING FORWARD TO HIS DAY

IN COURT.

I WILL FIGHT FOR THAT

ACQUITTAL.

Wendy: PLUS...SAN

DIEGO'S 30/30 THREAT.

CBN SPORTS SITS DOWN WITH

WILL MYERS.

EVERY SINGLE DAY I LIVE

FOR HIM.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, SOME OF

YOU MAY HAVE JEALOUSY AND

ENVY, AND YOU WOULD LIKE

TO BE DONALD TRUMP, BUT I

THINK IN TODAY'S WORLD I'M

NOT SURE I WANT TO BE.

THIS WORLD WE'RE LIVING IN

IS SO CHAOTIC.

AND PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

FACED WITH ISIS IN

SURGENCY, HE IS FACED WITH

A TERRIBLE GAS ATTACK IN

SYRIA.

HE IS FACED WITH MOUNTING

THREATS OF SOUTH KOREA.

HE IS FACED WITH

DISINTEGRATION OF THE E.U.

IT GOES ON AND ON AND ON.

AND THE RUSSIANS ARE DOING

STUFF.

IT IS NOT EASY.

IF YOU EVER NEED TO PRAY

FOR SOMEBODY, IT IS THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

THE PROBLEMS FACING THE

PRESIDENT, AND ALSO THE

BIG NEWS, WHICH HAS TO DO

WITH THE SUPREME COURT OF

THE UNITED STATES.

TERRY?

Terry: TODAY

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MEETING

WITH THE LEADER OF CHINA.

THEY'LL BE TALKING ABOUT

THAT DEADLY NUCLEAR THREAT

FROM NORTH KOREA.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THERE IS NO

MYSTERY OVER WHAT WILL BE

ON THE AGENDA WHEN THE

LEADERS OF THE U.S. AND

CHINA MEET FOR THE FIRST

TIME TODAY IN FLORIDA.

NORTH KOREA WILL BE ONE.

ON WEDNESDAY THE NATION

KNOWN AS THE HERMIT

KINGDOM LAUNCHED ANOTHER

BALLISTIC MISSILE.

President Trump:

NORTH KOREA, WE HAVE A BIG

PROBLEM.

WE HAVE SOMEBODY THAT IS

NOT DOING THE RIGHT THING.

AND THAT'S GOING TO BE MY

RESPONSIBILITY.

CLEARLY TRUMP WOULD

LIKE TO SEE CHINA PUTTING

MORE PRESSURE ON NORTH

KOREA.

CHINA WOULD LIKE TO SEE

THE U.S. OPENING DIRECT

NEGOTIATIONS WITH NORTH

KOREA.

Reporter: AND THE

OTHER BIG ISSUE ON THE

AGENDA IS TRADE.

TRUMP HAS ALREADY TWEETED

THAT THE U.S. CAN NO

LONGER HAVE MASSIVE TRADE

DEFICITS WITH CHINA.

YOU HAVE CONCERNS ALL

THE WAY FROM THE SOUTH

CHINA SEA TO TAIWAN.

Reporter: AND ANOTHER

CHALLENGE, THE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ATTACK THAT KILLED

AT LEAST 72 PEOPLE IN

SYRIA, SEEMS TO HAVE

CHANGED PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

PERCEPTION OF THE WAR

THERE AND THE

RUSSIAN-BACKED ASSAD

REGIME.

BEFORE BECOMING PRESIDENT,

HE SAID SYRIA WAS NOT OUR

PROBLEM.

BUT NOW HE SAYS --

President Trump: THAT

ATTACK ON CHILDREN

YESTERDAY HAD A BIG IMPACT

ON ME, BIG IMPACT.

MY ATTITUDE TOWARDS SYRIA

AND ASSAD HAS CHANGED VERY

MUCH.

Reporter: AS AN

EMERGENCY MEETING, RUSSIA

CONTINUED TO DENY THAT THE

SYRIAN GOVERNMENT WAS

BEHIND IT.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: AND THE

SYRIAN FOREIGN MINISTER

SAID TODAY HIS COUNTRY

NEVER USED, AND WILL NOT

USE, CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN

SYRIA.

BUT NIKKI HALEY SAID THE

FACTS WERE UNDENIABLE.

THERE ARE TIMES IN THE

LIFE OF STATES THAT WE ARE

COMPELLED TO TAKE OUR OWN

ACTIONS.

Reporter: BUT

PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS

NON-COMMITTAL OVER WHETHER

THE U.S. WOULD TAKE ACTION

AGAINST SYRIA, AND TOLD

REPORTERS IF HE WERE, HE

IS CERTAINLY NOT GOING TO

TELL THEM.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, DALE.

BOY, HE IS DOWN THERE

NEGOTIATING WITH CHINA,

AND HERE WE'VE GOT TO FACE

THIS CHEMICAL ATTACK.

SENATOR JOHN McCAIN HAD

A GOOD POINT YESTERDAY,

AND I THINK HE IS

WELL-SPOKEN ON THIS ONE.

WE CAN SET UP A NO-FLY

ZONE OVER SYRIA.

AND SAY IF YOU PUT ANY

AIRCRAFT IN THE AIR, WE'RE

GOING TO SHOOT IT DOWN.

TELL THE RUSSIANS TO GET

OUT OF THE WAY BECAUSE

WE'RE GOING TO BE IN THERE

IN FORCE.

I THINK WE CAN DO THAT.

JUST SAY, LOOK, YOU DON'T

FLY ANYMORE.

AND THEN WE START CLAMPING

DOWN ON TRADE.

BASHAR al-ASSAD IS

TRAINED AS A DOCTOR IN

EUROPE.

YOU WOULD THINK HE IS A

MAN OF MEDICINE, A MAN OF

HEALING.

HE HAS TURNED OUT TO BE A

BUTCHER AS BAD AS HIS

FATHER.

THIS CHEMICAL ATTACK IS AN

OUTRAGE.

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING.

> WELL, THERE IS

SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON.

A SHOWDOWN BEING IMPOSED

UPON THE PRESIDENT.

LOOKS LIKE THERE IS NO WAY

OUT.

THE SENATE VOTES TOMORROW.

REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO

HAVE TO USE WHAT IS CALLED

THE NUCLEAR OPTION TO

CONFIRM NEIL GORSUCH TO

THE SUPREME COURT.

JENNIFER WISHON BRINGS US

THAT.

Jennifer: IT LOOKS

LIKE REPUBLICANS WILL HAVE

TO GO NUCLEAR, OR AT THE

VERY LEAST GET CREATIVE,

IF THEY WANT TO FULFILL

THEIR PROMISE TO PUT NEIL

GORSUCH ON THE SUPREME

COURT.

DEMOCRATS ARE UNWAVERING

IN THEIR RESISTANCE,

EMEMPLOYING TACTICS LIKE

LONG, DRAMATIC SPEECHES ON

THE SENATE FLOOR.

THIS IS AN EXTREME

NOMINEE FROM THE FAR RIGHT

WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN THE

FUNDAMENTAL VISION OF "WE

THE PEOPLE" AND MAKES

DECISION AFTER DECISION

THROUGH TORTURE, TWISTED,

CONTRIVED ARGUMENTS

DEFINED FOR THE POWERFUL

OVER THE PEOPLE.

Jennifer: COUNSELLOR

TO THE PRESIDENT,

KELLYANNE CONWAY, TELLS

CBN NEWS DEMOCRATS ARE

PLAYING POLITICAL GAMES

WITH GORSUCH, DESPITE HIS

FIRST-RATE QUALIFICATIONS.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

NEIL GORSUCH, AN APPELLATE

JUDGE IN THE U.S. CIRCUIT

COURT, WHO'S ACADEMIC

CREDENTIALS AND JUDICIAL

RECORD ARE BEYOND

REPROACH.

Jennifer: THE

AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION

GAVE GORSUCH ITS HIGHEST

POSSIBLE RATING.

NOW CONSERVATIVES ARE

ASKING IF DEMOCRATS WILL

GO AFTER A NOMINEE AS

QUALIFIED AS JUDGE

GORSUCH, THEN WHO WILL

THEY ACCEPT FROM PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S LIST OF POTENTIAL

NOMINEES.

WHAT IS UNPRECEDENTED

HERE IN THE 228 YEAR

HISTORY OF THE INSTITUTE

OF THE UNITED STATES

SENATE IS A PARTISAN

FILIBUSTER.

IT IS VERY, VERY

UNFORTUNATE.

Jennifer: A NUMBER OF

DEMOCRATS NOW AGAINST

GORSUCH WERE FIRST FOR

HIM.

THOSE WHO WERE IN THE

SENATE IN 2006 WHEN

PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH

NOMINATED GORSUCH TO THE

TENTH CIRCUIT COURT OF

APPEALS, AND HE WAS

CONFIRMED UNANIMOUSLY.

DESPITE THE POLITICAL

GAMES, REPUBLICANS SAY

THEY'RE NOT DETERRED.

CONWAY SAYS THE PRESIDENT

KNOWS HIS COMMITMENT TO

APPOINT A JUDGE WITH

COMMITMENT TO THE

CONSTITUTION IS ONE OF THE

REASON EVANGELICALS VOTED

FOR HIM IN RECORD NUMBERS.

NEIL GORSUCH WILL SIT

ON THE UNITED STATES

SUPREME COURT VERY SOON,

WE'RE CONFIDENT OF THAT.

Jennifer: WE'LL SOON

FIND OUT.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: I TELL YOU IF

JOHN MARSHAL WAS PUT UP

FOR THE SUPREME COURT,

THEY WOULD VOTE HIM DOWN.

IN JAMES MADISON WAS UP

THERE, THEY WOULD VOTE HIM

DOWN.

ANYBODY THAT TRUMP

PROPOSES WILL BE VOTED

DOWN.

THE REPUBLICANS RECOGNIZE

THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE

PLAYING THE LOWEST KIND OF

POLITICS.

FOR THAT MAN TO RANT ON

ABOUT HOW FAR OFF THE

MAINSTREAM -- THIS MAN IS

ONE OF THE BEST QUALIFIED

JUDICIAL NOMINEES WE HAVE

EVER HAD FOR THE SUPREME

COURT.

AND WHEN YOU THINK THAT

THE DECISIONS HE HAS MADE

HAVE BEEN BACKED UP BY HIS

FELLOW JUDGES ALMOST 98%

OF THE TIME, IT'S

UNBELIEVABLE.

ANYHOW, IT'S COMING UP

TOMORROW.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE

DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO

KILL THEMSELVES.

IF THEY FORCE THE

REPUBLICANS TO USE THE

NUCLEAR OPTION, THE NEXT

JUDGE IS GOING TO BE A

WHOLE LOT MORE

CONSERVATIVE AND A WHOLE

LOT LESS QUALIFIED, AND

THEY CAN PUT HIM THROUGH

WITH THE SIMPLE MAJORITY.

JAY SEKULOW FOR THE

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS WITH US.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA INTO

THE MIND OF THE DEMOCRATS?

WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS?

Reporter: THEY'RE

GETTING A LOT OF PRESSURE,

PAT, FROM THE GROUPS ON

THE LEFT, FROM PLANNED

PARENTHOOD AND OTHERS, TO

DO THIS REALLY SUICIDE

MISSION REGARDING THIS

FILIBUSTER.

THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS -- YOU AND I KNOW

THIS -- TOMORROW EVENING

JUDGE GORSUCH WILL PUT HIS

HAND ON THE BIBLE SOMETIME

TOMORROW NIGHT AND WILL BE

SWORN IN.

BECAUSE THE REPUBLICANS

WILL CHANGE THE RULE -- IT

IS NOT REALLY A RULE --

THE PRECEDENT, THE

SO-CALLED NUCLEAR

OPTION -- WHICH IS NOTHING

NUCLEAR ABOUT IT.

THE CONSTITUTION DOESN'T

MANDATE 60 VOTES TO GET

SOMETHING TO THE FLOOR OF

THE SENATE.

SO THE DEMOCRATS HAVE

DECIDED -- AND YOU SAID IT

SO PERFECTLY JUST A FOU FEW

MOMENTS AGO -- THEY'RE

ATTACKING JUDGE GEORGIA GORSUCH

BECAUSE OF A SEAT THAT WAS

PASSED BY ANTONIN SCALIA.

THIS IS JUST REPLACING

JUST SCALIA.

THEY'RE GOING TO UTILIZE

THE FILIBUSTER NOW, AND

THEN WHEN WE HAVE ANOTHER

VACANCY, POTENTIALLY THIS

SUMMER, THEN THEY'RE DONE.

SO THIS WILL BE THE

SUPREME COURT WAY BEYOND

MY LIFE AND YOUR LIFE.

THIS WILL BE THE SUPREME

COURT FOR THE NEXT 40 OR

60 YEARS.

CERTAINLY THE NEXT 40

YEARS.

IT MAKES NO SENSE WHAT THE

DEMOCRATS ARE DOING, BUT

THEY'RE GETTING PRESSURE

FROM THE LEFT, AND THAT'S

WHY THEY'RE DOING IT.

Pat: JAY, AGAIN, I'M

BAFFLED, BUT IT MAY BE

THEY DON'T SEE THE

STRATEGIC PLAN.

THE PLAN IS LAID OUT.

THE THING OF IT IS HARRY

REID SET THIS DEAL IN

MOTION.

THEY CAN'T BLAME THE

REPUBLICANS ON THIS

NUCLEAR OPTION.

REID DID IT.

YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY

CORRECT.

YOU LOOK AT THE AGE OF THE

JUSTICES BEING NOMINATED,

JUDGE GORSUCH IS IN HIS

LATE 40s, AND OTHERS ARE

JUST TURNING 55, AND

SOTOMEYER JUST TURNED 60.

LET'S SAY PRESIDENT TRUMP

GETS THREE MORE

SELECTIONS, YOU ARE

TALKING ABOUT JUDGES THAT

WILL BE GOING ON THE COURT

IN THEIR MID-TO-LATE

40s.

YOU'VE GOT JUDGES THAT ARE

GOING TO SERVE PROBABLY

FOR 30 OR 40 YEARS.

SO THIS IS A SUPREME COURT

FOR TWO GENERATIONS.

AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE

PLAYING WITH FIRE HERE.

BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT?

THEY DO IT GOOD.

LET'S GET THIS GUY

CONFIRMED.

Pat: WHAT REID PUT IN

WAS FOR CIRCUIT COURT.

I UNDERSTAND THERE MAY BE

SOME OPENINGS ON THE D.C.

CIRCUIT, WHICH WOULD BE A

MAJOR COUP IS TRUMP COULD

PUT SOME ON THAT COURT,

TOO?

YES, BECAUSE THE D.C.

CIRCUIT IS THE SECOND MOST

POWERFUL COURT.

YOU'RE EXACTLY CORRECT, IT

IS THE SECOND MOST

POWERFUL COURT IN THE

COUNTRY.

I THINK WITH MORE

VACANCIES COMING THERE,

YOU COULD SEE A SHIFT

DRAMATICALLY OVER FOUR TO

EIGHT YEARS IN THE FEDERAL

COURTS, NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

Pat: I GUESS WE'RE

ALL CONCERNED ABOUT THIS

THING WITH SUSAN RICE.

YOU WROTE AN OP-ED ABOUT

IT.

WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON IT?

YOU KNOW, PAT, I THINK

A GRAND JURY NEEDS TO BE

IMPANELED BY THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT.

THEY NEED TO BE LOOKING AT

VIOLATIONS OF THE LAW.

AND SIMPLE ESPIONAGE AND

CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT

ESPIONAGE.

THE UNMASKING OF THIS

THING IS ONE THING, BUT

THE LEAKING OF IT IS THE

CRIME.

BUT FOR SUSAN RICE'S

ACTION, THIS WOULD NOT

HAVE BEEN PUT INTO PLAY.

WHAT I LOOK AT, AS A

FORMER GOVERNMENT LAWYER,

WHO ARE THE VARIOUS

PLAYERS AND WHAT DID THEY

DO COLLECTIVELY.

I LOOK AT THEIR INDIVIDUAL

ACTIONS, AND THEN I LOOK

AT WHAT KIND OF

COMMUNICATIONS THEY'VE HAD

WITH EACH OTHER.

AND THAT'S HOW YOU PUT A

CONSPIRACY CASE TOGETHER.

I WAS TALKING TO ONE OF

OUR SENIOR LAWYERS, AND WE

SAID, THIS IS A CONSPIRACY

CASE.

IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE

ESPIONAGE, SPECIFICALLY 18

U.S.C. APP.

I THINK SUSAN RICE IS

GOING TO TAKE THE FIFTH

AMENDMENT, I THINK SHE IS

GOING TO TRY TO CLAIM

EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE.

SHE WILL DID EVERYTHING

SHE CANNOT TO HAVE TO

TESTIFY.

SHE UNMASKED IT, AND SHE

PUT IT IN MOTION, AND YOU

NEED TO BE LOOKING AT HER

AND OTHERS TO SEE WHERE

THIS CONSPIRACY GOES.

Pat: HOW DO YOU SEE

IT, DO YOU THINK SHE MAY

END UP DOING SOME TIME?

WILL THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT IMPANEL A GRAND

JURY?

HOPEFULLY THAT IS ALREADY

BEING DONE.

NUMBER TWO, THE VARIOUS

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES

ARE GOING TO TALK TO HER.

I HEARD YESTERDAY FROM

SOME OF OUR FRIENDS ON

CAPITOL HILL, PAT, THAT

THEY ARE PLANNING ON

BRINGING SALLY YATES IN,

AND THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT

BRINGING LORETTA LYNCH IN,

AND THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT

A NUMBER OF PEOPLE --

JAMES CLAPPER -- TO FIND

OUT WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS

GOING ON.

BECAUSE PEOPLE KEEP

CALLING THIS SURVEILLANCE,

BUT IT IS SOUNDING TO LOOK

TO ME LIKE SPYING ON THE

OPPOSING POLITICAL PARTY.

WE SHOULD NOT BE ACCEPTING

THAT AS NORMAL BEHAVIOR.

THAT IS NOT NORMAL.

THAT'S NOT THE USUAL

POLITICS OF THE MOMENT.

THAT'S SPYING ON YOUR

OPPONENT.

Pat: MY DEAR BROTHER,

ON A PERSONAL NOTE, I

UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS A

BLOCKAGE IN ONE OF YOUR

ARTERIES GOING TO YOUR

HEART -- ARE YOU EVER

GOING TO REST?

WE'RE GOING TO BE FINE.

EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE.

WE'LL BE GOOD.

I AM GOING -- I'LL TELL

YOU THIS, PAM SAID TO ME,

YOU KNOW, A BREAK WOULD BE

GOOD, TAKING A BREAK MIGHT

BE GOOD.

WE'LL SEE.

Pat: PLEASE KNOW

WE'RE PRAYING FOR YOU.

THANK YOU.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

JAY SEKULOW, A WONDERFUL

VOICE FOR A REASON, THE

HEAD OF THE ACLJ, AND A

DEAR FRIEND.

I'M THE PRESIDENT BUT HE

IS THE GENERAL COUNSEL.

SHHE IS A DISTINGUISHED

LAWYER AND HE IS ON TOP OF

THIS ONE.

Terry: COMING UP, HE

HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF A

WITCH HUNT FOR THE CRIME

OF BEING A CHRISTIAN JUDGE

IN A DEEP BLUE STATE.

AND ANYBODY WHO SAID

ANYTHING ABOUT NATURAL

MARRIAGE WHO HELD AN

ELECTED POSITION WOULD

SUFFER, I THINK, SOME

PERSECUTION.

Terry: OREGON JUDGE

VANCE DAY SHARES HIS SIDE

OF THE STORY.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: THIS IS A

STRANGE CASE.

YOU WISH SOMETHING LIKE

THIS WOULDN'T HAPPEN.

BUT A CONSERVATIVE

CHRISTIAN JUDGE HAS FOUND

HIMSELF FACING CHARGES IN

A LIBERAL STATE.

SHOULD THIS JUDGE BE

REMOVED FROM THE BENCH, OR

ARE POLITICS BEHIND THE

CASE?

OUR MARK MARTIN BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Mark: OREGON CIRCUIT

COURT JUDGE VANCE DAY

COULD BE FORCED OFF THE

BENCH.

THE CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN

AND REPUBLICAN SAYS HE IS

THE VICTIM OF LIBERAL

POLITICS IN A DEEP BLUE

STATE.

BECAUSE I STOOD QUIETLY

FOR NATURAL MARRIAGE AT A

POINT WHERE THE STATE WAS

QUICKLY TURNING TOWARDS

GAY MARRIAGE, I WAS

TARGETED, I BELIEVE, TO

SEND A MESSAGE TO OTHER

JUDGES WHO HAD THE SIM

PERSPECTIVE I DO.

AND, THAT IS, IF YOU ERR

OR STATE YOUR PERSPECTIVE

IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM

TO THE PUBLIC ABOUT YOUR

BELIEF, THEN YOU HAVE TO

PLACE ON THE BENCH.

Reporter: THE STATE'S

CONVICTION SAID DAY

VIOLATED HIS OATH OF

OFFICE.

THE COMMISSION ACCUSED DAY

OF TELLING HIS STAFF TO

MAKE SURE NO SAME-SEX

COUPLES WERE BROUGHT

BEFORE HIM FOR MARRIAGE

CEREMONIES, OF CREATING

IMPROPER RELATIONSHIPS

WITH THE DEFENDANTS, AND

ALLOWING A CONVICTED FELON

TO HANDLE A GUN, AMONG

OTHER CHARGES.

> SO ARE ALL OF THESE

ALLEGATIONS FALSE?

WE PROVED THEY WERE

FALSE.

THE ALLEGATIONS, AS ONE

PERSON HAD SAID, WAS LIKE

THROWING THE KITCHEN SINK

AT SOMEBODY.

I BELIEVE THEIR MAIN POINT

WAS: WE DON'T THINK THAT

YOU'RE A PROPER PERSON.

YOU DON'T FIT OUR MODEL AS

A JUDGE.

THEY NEVER QUITE

ARTICULATED WHY.

THEY JUST CAME UP WITH A

VARIETY OF ALLEGATIONS.

Mark: DAY BELIEVES

HIS CASE WAS THE RESULT OF

WHAT HE CALLS A PERFECT

STORM.

IT HAPPENED TO OCCUR AT

A TIME WHEN POLITICS WAS

COMING TO AN APEX.

Mark: SO YOU BELIEVE

YOU'RE THE VICTIM OF A

POLITICAL VENDETTA BASED

ON YOUR STANCE ON SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE?

MY OPINION, BASED UPON

WHAT I'VE SEEN IN THE LAST

TWO YEARS, IS THAT I THINK

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE AND THAT

ISSUE HAS COMPLICATED WHAT

SHOULD HAVE BEEN A VERY

SIMPLE, STRAIGHTFORWARD

ETHICS CASE.

I DON'T THINK THEY

EXPECTED ME TO FIGHT.

THEY CAME TO ME AND MY

ATTORNEYS AND SAID, IF YOU

JUST RESIGN, THIS WILL ALL

GO AWAY.

I CAN'T RESIGN.

I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING

WRONG.

I SIMPLY, AS A PERSON OF

FAITH, CHOSE TO RECUSE

MYSELF FROM A NON-JUDICIAL

ACT AND STAYED I IN CONFORM

WITH MY PRINCIPLES.

THEY CAN GET MARRIED BY

SOMEBODY ELSE.

Mark: JUDGE DAY

APPEALED THE COMMISSION'S

DECISION, AND HIS CASE IS

NOW BEFORE THE STATE

SUPREME COURT.

HOWEVER, HIS LEGAL

TROUBLES DON'T STOP THERE.

HE ALSO FACES A CRIMINAL

INDICTMENT.

THE CHARGES STEM FROM

DAY'S TIME AS A JUDGE

PRESIDING OVER THE MARION

COUNTY VETERAN'S TREATMENT

COURT.

DAY IS ACCUSED OF ALLOWING

A NAVY SEAL TO POSSESS

CONTROLLED GUNS.

DAY SAYS THE CRIMINAL

CHARGES ARE POLITICALLY

MOTIVATED.

I'VE TESTIFIED IN THE

PAST ABOUT WHAT DID

HAPPEN.

I DIDN'T AID AND ABET A

FELON IN THE POSSESSION OF

A FIREARM EVER.

I NEVER WOULD DO THAT AND

I NEVER DID.

Mark: FORMER VIRGINIA

GOVERNOR BOB McDONALD

TOLD CBN NEWS HE BELIEVES

DAY WILL BE FOUND

INNOCENT.

THE TWO WERE CLASSMATES AT

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

HE IS ALSO NO STRANGER TO

THE COURTS.

McDONALD FACED TWO YEARS

IN PRISON AFTER BEING

CONVICTED OF POLITICAL

OBSTRUCTION.

BUT THE UNITED STATES

SUPREME COURT VOTED

UNANIMOUSLY TO OVERTURN

HIS CONVICTION.

DOES JUDGE DAY'S CASE

REMIND YOU OF WHAT YOU

WENT THROUGH?

ABSOLUTELY.

AT THE VERY BEGINNING OF

THIS, I WAS SHOCKED TO THE

CORE OF MY BEING WHEN I

FOUND OUT I WAS BEING

INVESTIGATED BY LAW

ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.

I HAD BEEN DOING THIS FOR

38 YEARS.

SO JUDGE DAY AND I HAVE

TALKED A LOT OVER THE LAST

THREE, FOUR, FIVE MONTHS,

AND I TRY TO ENCOURAGE

HIM.

HE IS A MAN OF IMMENSE

FAITH.

I SEE HIM KEEPING HIS HEAD

UP.

I BELIEVE HIM TOTALLY

TRUSTING IN THE LORD FOR

VINDICATION.

Mark: DO YOU BELIEVE

YOU WILL BE ACQUITTED?

I WILL BE ACQUITTED.

I WILL FIGHT FOR THAT

ACQUITTAL IN THE CRIMINAL

CASE.

I DESERVE A JURY TRIAL.

I WANT THAT JURY TRIAL.

BECAUSE I CAN PROVE THINGS

IN THAT JURY TRIAL THAT

THE COMMISSION WOULD NOT

ALLOW US TO PROVE, AND

STOPPED US, IN MY OPINION,

FROM PRESENTING EVIDENCE.

Mark: JUDGE DAY HAS A

HEARING ON MOTIONS TO

DISMISS THE CRIMINAL

INDICTMENT LATER THIS

MONTH.

AND IN JUNE, HE MAKES HIS

CASE ON THE ETHICS

VIOLATIONS FROM THE OREGON

SUPREME COURT.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THERE YOU HAVE

IT, FOLKS.

THE LEFT, THE SO-CALLED

PROGRESSIVES, THE

SO-CALLED LIBERALS, HATE

FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

THEY DO NOT PERMIT FREEDOM

OF THOUGHT OR SPEECH.

ANYTHING THAT DISAGREES

WITH THEM, WHETHER IT IS

CLIMATE CHANGE, WHETHER IT

IS ABORTION, WHETHER IT IS

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, YOU CAN

GO DOWN THE LITANY OF THE

THINGS THAT THEY ESPOUSE.

AND IF YOU DISAGREE WITH

THEM, THEN YOU'RE AN

ENEMY, AND THEY'RE GOING

TO DESTROY YOU.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE LOOKING

AT HERE.

THIS ISN'T JUST MERELY A

SLAP ON THE WRIST.

THEY'RE TRYING TO DESTROY

THIS MAN.

THEY MADE A CRIMINAL

CHARGE AGAINST HIM AND

THEY'RE TRYING TO PUT HIM

IN JAIL.

WHAT A TERRIBLE THING TO

DO TO SOMEBODY WHO IS A

CHRISTIAN, WHO WANTED TO

UPHOLD HIS POINT OF VIEW.

IT IS TIME WE STAND UP

AGAINST THIS.

THAT'S WHY THIS

APPOINTMENT OF THE SUPREME

COURT, THE VOTE TOMORROW,

IS SO VERY IMPORTANT.

AND VOTES ON OTHER CASES

ARE SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE,

YOU SEE, THE LEFT, THEY

WON'T -- FOR EXAMPLE, THEY

WON'T ACKNOWLEDGE THAT

DONALD TRUMP WON THE

ELECTION.

THEY WON'T KNOWLEDGE THAT

HILLARY CLINTON LOST.

THEY DID LOSE.

SOMEBODY ELSE WON.

THAT'S THE DEMOCRATIC

PROCESS.

SO YOU STAND ASIDE AND LET

THE OTHER GUY TAKE OVER.

NOT WITH THEM.

THEY'RE GOING TO DO

EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO

DESTROY AND HAVE HIM

IMPEACHED, AND DO

EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO

REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE AND

ATTACK HIS CLOSE

SUPPORTERS.

IT IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE.

FORTUNATELY WE'VE GOT A

GUY WHO HAS A CAST IRON

STOMACH AND HE GETS IN

THERE AND FIGHTS, AND

THEY'VE NEVER SEEN

ANYTHING LIKE IT.

BUT SO MANY PEOPLE DON'T

FIGHT.

THEY JUST FOLD UP.

THE REPUBLICANS OVER THE

YEARS HAVE JUST FOLDED UP

WHEN THESE GUYS DO THIS.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING IS

PURE POPPY COCK, IT MAKES

NO SENSE AT ALL.

I THINK THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO

WAKE UP TO THE FACT THAT

THESE GUYS ARE FULL OF HOT

AIR AND THEY'RE MEAN.

THIS COUNTRY HAS GOT TO

GET BACK TO ITS FOUNDING

ROOTS.

AND THAT MEANS WE FIGHT

FOR PEOPLE LIKE JUDGE DAY

AND NEIL GORSUCH AND

PEOPLE WHO ARE

REPRESENTING US.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, HE IS

AN ALL-STAR FIRST-BASE MAN

WHO RUNS FOR SPEED.

NOW WILL MYERS REVEALS

WHERE HE GETS HIS GIFTS.

YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE, AND

YOU LIVE IT FOR HIM, AND

THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED IN

THIS GAME.

Terry: CBN SPORTS

TALKS WITH THE FACE OF THE

FRANCHISE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: MANY YEARS AGO,

I SHIPPED OUT OF SAN

DIEGO, GOING TO THE FAR

EAST, WHERE I WOUND UP IN

JAPAN AND ULTIMATELY IN --

WHERE WAS IT, KOREA?

I THINK IT WAS KOREA.

THEY HAD A WAR OVER THERE

AND THE MARINES WERE IN

IT.

BUT THE CITY IS HOME TO,

THEY CLAIM, PERFECT

WEATHER AND PRISTINE

BEACHES.

IT IS ALSO HOME TO

FIRST-BASE MAN WILL MYERS.

THE FORMER ROOKIE OF THE

YEAR HAS BECOME THE FACE

OF THE PADRES' FRANCHISE.

BUT AS HE TOLD SPORTS

REPORTER TOM BUEHRING, HE

WANTS TO POINT PEOPLE TO

SOMEONE ELSE.

Reporter: WILL MYERS

IS HIT HIS STRIDE AS

BASEBALL'S BIGGEST

ACHIEVER.

WITH THAT PLAYERS COVETED

MIX OF SPEED AND POWER.

THAT'S A RARE

COMMODITY.

HOW MUCH OF THAT IS

GIFTING?

GROWING UP, IT ALWAYS

KIND OF CAME EASY TO ME.

AND TRAINING IS A BIG

FACTOR, AND SO IT COMES

DOWN TO WORKING HARD AND

JUST IMPROVING YOUR GAME.

Reporter: IT TOOK

TIME AND OPPORTUNITY FOR

WILL.

THREE YEARS FOLLOWING HIS

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR SEASON

WITH TAMPA BAY, HIS CAREER

TOOK OFF AFTER ARRIVING

INED SAINSAN DIEGO.

> YOU HAD YOUR BREAKOUT

SEASON, AND WHAT DO YOU

ATTRIBUTE THAT TO?

JUST BEING HEALTHY.

LAST YEAR WAS ONE OF THOSE

YEARS WHEN I WAS FINALLY

HEALTHY.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

TO ME IS PLAYING 162

GAMES, BECAUSE ONCE I CAN

DO THAT, I KNOW I CAN DO

IT.

Reporter: THE

CHARGERS LEAVE TOWN.

YOU'RE NOW JUS NOT JUST THE

FACE OF THE PADRES, BUT OF

THE CITY.

I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT

THE OPPORTUNITY.

I THINK THE BIGGEST THING

IS DON'T LET IT KIND OF

GET EMOTIONAL.

JUST GO OUT EVERY DAY AND

PLAY YOUR GAME.

DON'T THINK OF IT AS THE

FACE OF SAN DIEGO SPORTS.

IT IS STILL THE SAME GAME

I PLAYED WHEN I WAS FIVE

YEARS OLD, AND IT IS STILL

THE SAME GAME I WILL PLAY

UNTIL I RETIRE.

Reporter: WHERE IS

HUMILITY FOR YOU?

IT IS A BIG DEAL.

ESPECIALLY WITH BASEBALL

AND THE GAME OF FAILURE.

AS SOON AS YOU GET PRETTY

COCKY, YOU'RE GOING TO

STRUGGLE.

I'VE SEEN IT OVER THE

YEARS.

AND ALONG THOSE LINES, YOU

NEVER WANT TO DOUBT

YOURSELF.

YOU WANT TO BE ONE OF

THOSE GUYS WHO IS

CONFIDENT.

WHEN YOU'RE ON THE FIELD,

YOU'VE GOT TO THINK YOU'RE

THE BEST PLAYER.

Reporter: AT 26 YEARS

OLD, YOU'RE THE VETERAN.

WHAT ADVANTAGE DO YOU GAIN

BY THAT?

I'M NOT SURE.

I'M VERY EXCITED.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE ONE

OF THOSE THINGS WHERE I'M

GOING TO TELL EVERYBODY

WHAT TO DO.

IF I CAN SHARE SOME THINGS

ALONG THE WAY, I WILL.

Reporter: ALONG THE

WAY HE ALSO CONFRONTED HIS

FAITH WITH AUTHENTICITY.

YOU GO TO YOUR TWITTER

PAGE, AND THE NAME OF

JESUS, OF ALL NAMES, IS

STANDING BY YOURS.

WHY DO YOU INCLUDE HIM?

I'VE BEEN A REAL

BELIEVER SINCE 2012.

I GREW UP IN THE CHURCH

BUT REALLY DIDN'T TAKE MY

FAITH SERIOUSLY.

I WAS ROOMMATES WITH A GUY

WHO IS NOW A CHAPLAIN FOR

THE BRAVES.

HE TAUGHT ME WHAT IT WAS

LIKE TO BE A TRUE

BELIEVER.

IT IS A LIFESTYLE NOW.

YOU GO OUT EVERY SINGLE

DAY AND LIVE FOR HIM.

Reporter: WHO HAS HE

BECOME FOR YOU?

JESUS IS YOUR LORD AND

SAVIOR.

HE DIED FOR YOUR SINS.

YOU GO OUT THERE, AND

EVERY TIME YOU GET THAT

VOICE IN YOUR HEAD TO TALK

ABOUT HIM, YOU'VE JUST GOT

TO GO IT.

IT IS TOUGH TO BE A

BELIEVER, BECAUSE YOU GO

THROUGH THOSE TIMES WHEN

GOD IS ASKING YOU TO DO

SOMETHING, AND YOU'RE

HESITANT, BUT IT IS ONE OF

THOSE THINGS YOU HAVE TO

SUCK IT UP AND DO IT

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE

CALLED TO DO.

Reporter: HE RISES TO

THE GAME HE LOVES AND TO

THE CHRIST HE FOLLOWS.

> HOW DOES THAT PLAY

OUT, WILL?

SIX MONTHS AGO, I

REALLY STARTED TO READ THE

BIBLE EVERY NIGHT.

I KIND OF LIKE TO KEEP IT

TO MYSELF, ESPECIALLY WHEN

I WANT TO LEARN AND DIVE

INTO THE WORD.

WE DON'T HAVE A CHANCE TO

GO TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY,

SO WE HAVE TO MAKE OUR OWN

CHURCH IN THE CLUBHOUSE.

THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED IN

THIS GAME.

Pat: OUR HATS ARE

OFF, IF WE HAD HATS, TO

WILL MYERS OF THE PADRES.

THERE IS AN AWFUL LOT OF

PRESSURE ON THOSE GUYS.

AND THEY'RE LIFTED UP

HIGH.

AND THEY BECOME ROLE

MODELS FOR KIDS.

THEY'RE THE FAN IDOLS.

AND IT IS UNBELIEVABLE,

WHAT PRESSURE THEY HAVE.

THEY HAVE TO KEEP

PERFORMING.

IF THEY LOSE A FEW

PERCENTAGE POINTS, AND THE

NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

INSTEAD OF STARS, THEY'RE

BUMS.

Terry: THE CHALLENGE

OF BEING ABLE TO STAY

CONFIDENT WITHOUT BEING

COCKY, THAT IS A FINE LINE

YOU WALK THERE.

Pat: YOU HAVE TO BE

HUMBLE, AND AT THE SAME

TIME, I'VE GOT TO BE A

WINNER.

OKAY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

DANIEL WANTS TO KNOW THIS:

"IN HEAVEN, WILL WE BE

ASSIGNED A DUTY OR

OTHERWISE SPECIFIC

PURPOSE?"

PAT WILL ANSWER THAT AND

MUCH MORE AS WE "BRING IT

ON.".

THAT'S COMING UP.

THAT'S COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

A BILL THAT AIMS TO

PROTECT RELIGIOUS

EXPRESSION IN PUBLIC

SCHOOLS HAS PASSED IN

FLORIDA'S HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

LAWMAKERS CELEBRATED WHEN

THE BILL WON APPROVAL.

THEY SEE IT AS A WIN FOR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

THE MEASURE ALLOWS

STUDENTS AND STAFF IN THE

STATE'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO

TAKE PART IN STUDENT-LED

PRAYER.

AND IT BARS SCHOOL

DISTRICTS FROM

DISCRIMINATING AGAINST

STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND

SCHOOL PERSONNEL ON THE

BASIS OF RELIGIOUS

EXPRESSION.

THE BILL IS IN RESPONSE TO

THE TIGHTENING OF FREE

SPEECH RIGHTS IN SCHOOLS,

LIKE THE BANNING OF

RELIGIOUS JEWELRY,

INCLUDING CROSS NECKLACES.

> A CONTROVERSY OF

BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS

TURNED AN ANNUAL EASTER

EGG HUNT IN THE UNITED

KINGDOM INTO ONE NASTY EGG

FIGHT.

CADBURY OMITTED THE WORD

"EASTER" FROM THE

MARKETING CAMPAIGN.

THE MOVE ANGERED MANY

CHRISTIANS, INCLUDING

BRITAIN'S PRIME MINISTER,

THERESA MAY.

I THINK THE STANCE

THEY'VE TAKEN IS

ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS.

EASTER IS VERY IMPORTANT.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO ME, AND

IT'S A VERY IMPORTANT

FESTIVAL FOR THE CHRISTIAN

FAITH FOR MILLIONS ACROSS

THE WORLD.

SO I THINK WHAT THE

NATIONAL TRUST IS DOING IS

FRANKLY JUST RIDICULOUS.

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND

ACCUSED THE TRUST OF

AIR-BRUSHING FAITH, BUT

THE TRUST AND CADBURY SAYS

THE WHOLE THING IS JUST A

BIG MISUNDERSTANDING.

THE TRUST HAS SINCE REDONE

ITS WEBSITE.

> PAT AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, LET'S

"BRING IT ON" WITH SOME OF

THE QUESTIONS YOU ALL HAVE

SENT IN.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM DANIEL, WHO ASKS, "IS

THERE ANY EVIDENTER EVIDENTERY

REPORT THAT ONCE ACCEPTED

INTO HEAVEN WE WILL BE

ASSIGNED A SPECIFIC

PURPOSE?"

Pat: THE ANGELS WILL

BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE

SAINTS AND THAT WILL BE

ONE OF YOUR TASKS.

JESUS SAID YOUR REWARD

WILL BE GREAT IN HEAVEN.

BUT EVIDENTIARY SUPPORT,

WE JUST DON'T HAVE A

ROADMAP THAT LAYS ALL THIS

STUFF OUT.

YOU HAVE TO PICK OUT

LITTLE PIECES.

THIS IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE

AT ALL.

Terry: ANGIE SAYS,

"WHEN JESUS COMES BACK, IS

HE COMING BACK AT GOD, OR

AS BOTH GOD AND MAN?"

Pat: HE IS COMING

BACK AS WHO HE ALWAYS HAS

BEEN, THE SECOND MAN OF

GOD.

IN THE BEGINNING, THE WORD

WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WAS WORD

WAS GOD.

HE IS GOING TO COME BACK

AS THAT.

HE'LL COME BACK IN POWER

AND MIGHT.

HE SAID, YOU'LL SEE THE

SON OF MAN RIDING ON THE

CLOUDS OF HEAVEN, SITTING

AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE

POWER.

HE CALLED HIMSELF THE SON

OF MAN.

I'LL TELL YOU, WAIT UNTIL

HE COMES BACK, AND THEN

YOU'LL GET THE ANSWER.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: AND THEN WILA

ASKS, "IS COCONUT OIL GOOD

FOR YOU?"

Pat: EXTREMELY GOOD

FOR YOU.

IT IS A GOOD THING TO

HAVE, A GOOD THING TO COOK

WITH, AND IT'S VERY TASTY.

WE THINK IT HELPS IN

RELATION TO ALZHEIMER'S

AND SOME OTHER

NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS

WHICH HAVE BEEN PLAGUING

MANKIND.

Terry: LUIS SAYS,

"WHO CREATED GOD?"

Pat: I HAVE TO ASK

HOW OLD IS LUIS.

IF HE IS ONLY 12 -- THE

BIBLE SAYS IN THE

BEGINNING GOD.

SO BEFORE THERE WAS

ANYTHING TO BEGIN, GOD WAS

THERE.

BUT IT DOESN'T SAY WHO

CREATED HIM.

IT SAYS FROM EVERLASTING

UNTO EVERLASTING THOU ART

GOD.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING

IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS,

OKAY, I'M GOING TO TELL

YOU WHERE HE CAME FROM

BECAUSE IT IS NOT THERE.

WHAT IS IN THE BIBLE IS

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW TO

FIND SALVATION IN THE GOD

WHO IS THE AUTHOR OF THE

UNIVERSE.

AND HOW WE CAN PLEASE HIM.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE IS.

IT ISN'T AN EXPLANATION OF

HIS ORIGINS.

BUT ALL I KNOW IS THE

BIBLE SAYS, IN THE

BEGINNING GOD, BEFORE

ANYTHING COULD BEGIN, GOD

WAS ALREADY THERE.

THAT'S ALL I KNOW.

Terry: SUSAN SAYS,

"THE CHURCH I HAVE

ATTENDED MY WHOLE LIFE, 59

YEARS, BELIEVES IN

BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

I WAS TAUGHT IF YOU

HABITUALLY REJECT CHRIST'S

CALL, HE WILL NO LONGER

HEAR YOU.

I HAVE HEARD IT IS

BLASPHEMY.

PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO

ME."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

YOU SHALL NOT TAKE THE

NAME OF YAHWEH OVER A

FALSE HOST.

YOU SHALL NOT TAKE THE

LORD GOD'S NAME IN VAIN.

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE

ABOUT THIS WHOLE CONCEPT

OF BLASPHEMY.

I DON'T WANT TO GIVE YOU A

GREEK LESSON, BUT IT

HAPPENS ONE TIME.

THE ONLY EXPLANATION WE

CAN HAVE IS HE IS TALKING

ABOUT A DELIBERATE

REJECTION OF JESUS.

BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

LEADING YOU TO JESUS.

AND IF YOU REJECT THE

RULING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,

THEN THERE IS NO HOPE FOR

YOU BECAUSE THE ONLY HOPE

IS IN JESUS.

Terry: THIS IS DARLA

WHO SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

KNOWS THE WORD.

HE HAS SO MUCH MEMORIZED,

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO

LIVING IT, IT IS A

DIFFERENT STORY.

HE HAS BEEN TO BIBLE

COLLEGE.

HE IS A LICENSED PASTOR.

WE SING TOGETHER AND GO TO

CHURCH TOGETHER EVERY

WEEK.

IS IT RIGHT HE GOES TO

CHURCH AND STILL WANTS TO

GO TO THE CASINO THREE OR

FOUR TIMES A MONTH.

WE PAID OFF OUR CREDIT

CARDS, AND THEN HE TOOK A

CARD AND TOOK $200.

HE SAYS HE WILL PAY IT

BACK OUT OF HIS PAYCHECK

SO I SHOULDN'T BE

STRESSING ABOUT IT.

HE ACTUALLY BLAMES ME FOR

BEING UPSET.

PLEASE HELP ME.

ALL I WANT TO DO IS LIVE

FOR GOD.

I'M REALLY FRUSTRATED."

Pat: THE THING ABOUT

GAMBLING, THE BIBLE SAYS

YOU SHALL NOT TEMPT THE

LORD, YOUR GOD.

SO WHEN YOU TAKE A BUNCH

OF CHIPS AND SAY I'M

PUTTING THIS ON 16 RED,

AND THE LITTLE WHEEL GOES

AROUND AND IT COMES OUT 32

BLACK, YOU LOSE.

IF IT COMES OUT 16 RED,

YOU WIN.

ARE YOU ASKING GOD TO

CONTROL THE WHEEL?

ARE YOU ASKING HIM TO

CONTROL THE CARDS WHEN

THEY FLIP THE CARDS?

ARE YOU PRAYING YOU'LL HIT

AN INSIDE STRAIGHT?

OR IS IT JUST A GAME?

IF IT'S JUST A GAME, WHO

CARES.

YOU'VE GOT A COUPLE

HUNDRED BUCKS AND YOU WANT

TO HAVE A PARTY, SO THAT'S

YOUR RECREATION, INSTEAD

OF GOING RID RIDING ON THE

FERRIS WHEEL.

YOU'RE RIDING ON THE

ROULETTE WHEEL.

I DON'T THINK THAT TYPE OF

THING IS A, QUOTE, "SIN."

I THINK THE SIN IS IF

YOU'RE PRAYING TO GOD THAT

HE INTERVENE, AND IF YOU

DON'T WIN HE'S LET YOU

DOWN.

IN THIS CASE, IS YOUR

HUSBAND LOOKING AFTER YOU?

IS HE PAYING THE BILLS?

DOES HE LOVE YOU?

IS HE TAKING CARE OF YOUR

CHILDREN?

IS HE FAITHFUL?

DO YOU HAVE A GOOD LIFE

TOGETHER?

DOES HE LOVE YOU AND HUG

YOU AND KISS YOU AND ALL

OF THOSE GOOD THINGS?

DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH FOOD TO

EAT AND A HOUSE?

IF HE DOES ALL THAT, CHILL

OUT.

IF HE WANTS TO BLOW A

COUPLE HUNDRED BUCKS AT

THE CASINO, LET HIM DO IT.

FOR HIM IT'S RECREATION.

THAT'S HIS RECREATION.

IF IT GETS TO BE MORE THAN

THAT, THAT'S WHERE THE SIN

COMES IN.

Terry: WE THANK YOU

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

Pat: I'M SURE I'M

GOING TO GET A LOT OF

CALLS ON THAT ONE.

Terry: ADDRESS THAT

TO PAT ROBERTSON.

Pat: TERRY MEEUWSEN.

TERRY.COM.

Terry: OVER THE LAST

FEW MONTHS, THERE HAVE

BEEN MASSIVE STORMS AND

FLOODING THAT HAVE BEEN

WREAKING HAVOC IN PERU.

NEAR THE CAPITAL CITY, CBN

MET ONE YOUNG GIRL WHO

LOST HER HOME.

Reporter: FOR THE

PAST TWO MONTHS, ALMOST

CONSTANT RAIN HAS CAUSED

MASSIVE FLOODING IN LIMA

AND NORTHERN PERU.

9-YEAR-OLD ROSIO'S HOME

WAS SWEPT AWAY IN THIS

SWELLING RIVER.

Through Translator:

AT FIRST THE RIVER

OVERFLOWED.

I WAS AFRAID THAT MY

DAUGHTER AND SISTERS WERE

GOING TO DROWN.

Reporter: ROSIO AND

HER MOM AND SIBLINGS ARE

LIVING HERE IN SHELTERS

ASSEMBLED JUST LAST WEEK.

ABOUT 400 FAMILIES ARE

STRUGGLING TO SURVIVE IN

THIS TEMPORARY REFUGEE

CAMP ON HIGHER GROUND.

A MUDDY POND BELOW IS

THEIR MAIN SOURCE OF

WATER.

WE LEARNED THAT SOME

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WITHOUT

CLEAN DRINKING WATER FOR

UP TO THREE WEEKS.

Through Translator:

MY MOM WALKED THROUGH THE

ROAD.

SHE ASKED A LOT OF PEOPLE

TO GIVE US WATER TO DRINK.

WE WERE SO THIRSTY.

AFTER A FEW DAYS, SHE CAME

BACK WITH ONLY ONE BOTTLE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

THE RAINS FELL.

MUDSLIDES AND FLOODING

MADE LIFE MISERABLE.

ROSIO SAID SHE PRAYED.

I ASKED GOD TO KEEP THE

RIVER FROM OVERFLOWING

AGAIN, AND GOD LISTENED TO

ME.

MY BROTHER, MANUEL, AND I

WERE REALLY THIRSTY.

AND WE ASKED GOD TO SEND

WATER.

Reporter: JUST ONE

DAY AFTER HER PRAYER FOR

WATER TO DRINK, CBN CAME

TO HER COMMUNITY.

WE SET UP WATER PURIFYERS,

WHICH CLEANED HUNDREDS OF

GALLONS OF POND WATER IN

JUST A FEW HOURS.

A GREAT ROSIO AND HER

BROTHER SATISFIED THEIR

THIRST.

Through Translator:

GOD HEARD ME AND HE SENT

ME WATER TO DRINK.

Reporter: BUT THE

NEED FOR FRESH WATER

CONTINUES ACROSS PERU, AND

CBN IS TRYING TO REACH AS

MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE IN

THE COMING WEEKS.

Terry: FOR TWO MONTHS

THOSE RAINS HAVE BEEN

FALLING, THE FLOODS HAVE

BEEN TERRIBLE IN LIMA AND

PARTS OF PERU.

CBN DISASTER RELIEF HAS

BEEN THERE TO HELP.

AND THAT'S ONE PLACE.

YOU KNOW JUST FROM WHAT

HAS HAPPENED IN THE

WEATHER HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES ALONE, THAT

DISASTER HAPPENS

UNEXPECTEDLY AND IT

HAPPENS ALL AROUND THE

GLOBE.

HELP US BEEN THERE IN THE

NAME OF CHRIST, WON'T YOU?

WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO BE A

PART OF SUPPORTING CBN'S

DISASTER RELIEF FUND.

YOU CAN DO THAT BY GOING

TO YOUR PHONE AND CALLING

THE APPROPRIATE NUMBER.

AND THE BEST THING TO DO

IS TO SEND YOUR GIFT.

SO LET ME GIVE YOU THE CBN

DISASTER RELIEF FUND

ADDRESS.

IT IS RIGHT THERE.

CBN CENTER, VIRGINIA

BEACH, VIRGINIA.

AND PUT THIS ZIP CODE ON

IT: 23463.

OR YOU CAN CALL

1-800-700-7000 AND GIVE A

GIFT THERE AND DESIGNATE

IT TO CBN'S DISASTER

RELIEF FUND SO WE CAN HELP

THOSE IN NEED.

I LOVE WHEN SOMETHING HAS

HAPPENED HERE AT HOME THAT

IS TERRIBLE, WE ARE ABLE

TO BE THERE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

BUT AS AMERICANS, WE HAVE

A REPUTATION FOR BEING

THERE AROUND THE GLOBE AS

WELL.

LET'S CONTINUE TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

> UP NEXT, A MOM GRANTS

HIS SON A GRADUATION GIFT

WHEN SHE TAKES THE ROLLER

COASTER.

IT WAS VERY SCARY AND I

THINK BECAUSE I WAS TENSE.

Terry: FIND OUT WHY

SHE REGRETS TAKING THAT

RIDE.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU WHEN WE COME BACK, SO

STAY WITH US.

Terry: BRAN BORDER

WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO

BEEN PART OF OUR "THE 700

CLUB" AUDIENCE HERE.

BUT BEFORE THEY CAME HERE,

THEY TRAVELLED TO VIRGINIA

BEACH TO DO SOMETHING BREN

WAS NOT LOOKING FORWARD

TO, RIDING A ROLLER

COASTER.

Reporter: BREN BORDER

AND HER FAMILY WERE

VACATIONING IN COASTAL

VIRGINIA, JUST AS THEY DOE

EVERY JUNE.

ON THE FIRST DAY OF THEIR

TRIP, THEY WENT TO BUSCH

GARDENS' THEME PARK AND

HEADED STRAIGHT FOR THE

ROLLER COASTER.

I DO NOT NORMALLY RIDE

THE ROLLER COASTER.

AND MY SON, ROBERT, SAID,

I'M GRADUATING, YOU HAVE

TO GO ON THE ROLLER

COASTER, PLEASE.

AND THAT'S WHY I DID.

IT WAS VERY SCARY, AND

BECAUSE I WASN'T USED TO

IT, I WAS VERY TENSE.

Reporter: BREN WAS

SHAKEN UP BY THE IMPACT OF

THE RIDE BUT OTHERWISE

FELT FINE.

IT WASN'T UNTIL LATE THAT

NIGHT SHE BEGAN TO

EXPERIENCE INTENSE PAIN IN

HER ARM.

THE PAIN WORSENED THE NEXT

MORNING.

THE PAIN WAS SHARP.

SO TIGHT THAT I COULD

BARELY MOVE IT.

THE ONLY WAY THAT THE PAIN

WOULD SUBSIDE A LITTLE WAS

HOLDING IT AS TIGHT TO MY

CHEST AS I COULD.

Reporter: BREN AND

HER FAMILY PRAYED FOR A

HEALING.

A FEW TIMES A DAY SHE

FORCED HERSELF TO EXTEND

HER ARM.

I JUST FELT THAT I HAD

TO DO THAT.

I GUESS IT WAS INSTINCT.

IT FELT LIKE IT WAS

FREEZING.

I THOUGHT THE MORE THAT I

MOVED IT, MAYBE I WOULD BE

ABLE TO LOOSEN IT UP, BUT

I WAS NOT ABLE TO DO THAT.

Reporter: BREN TOOK

TYLENOL TO HELP MANAGE THE

PAIN.

SHE DIDN'T WANT TO

INTERRUPT THEIR VACATION

WITH A DOCTOR VISIT, SO

SHE DECIDED TO TOUGH IT

OUT.

AS THE WEEK WENT ON, I

DID GET MORE AND MORE

FRIGHTENED BECAUSE THE

PAIN GOT WORSE.

I THINK THE PAIN WAS

GETTING WORSE BECAUSE I

WAS FORCED TO HOLD IT IN

ONE POSITION ALL WEEK, AND

THEREFORE THE PAIN WOULD

TRAVEL UP MY ARM,

SHOULDER, NECK.

Reporter: LATER THAT

WEEK, THE FAMILY WENT TO A

TAPING OF "THE 700 CLUB."

BREN HAD THE OPPORTUNITY

TO MEET THE HOST AND SHARE

HER TESTIMONY.

I DO REMEMBER SAYING TO

GORDON THAT I REDEDICATED

MY LIFE TO THE LORD AT 20

BY WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AND IT WAS THROUGH ONE OF

HIS PRAYERS, IS SINNER'S

PRAYER, THAT HE LED ON TV.

AND I THANKED HIM FOR

THAT.

IT WAS AMAZING TO BE ON

THE SET, TO SEE WHERE

EVERYTHING HAPPENS THAT

I'VE BEEN WATCHING FOR SO

LONG.

Reporter: DURING THE

TAPING, GORDON AND TERRY

READ A TIME OF PRAYER.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH AN

INJURY ON THE RIGHT ARM

AND IT IS BOTH THE ELBOW

AND THE SHELTER, AN SHOULDER, AND GOD

HAS REMOVED THAT PAIN.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE.

HE IS ABLE TO REATTACH

TENDONS.

HE IS ABLE TO DO ALL OF

THESE THINGS BECAUSE HE

LOVES YOU.

HE CHERISHES YOU.

I HONESTLY THOUGHT,

WELL, GOSH, THAT'S ME,

EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO

ME.

I TOOK IT AND I SAID,

LORD, I THANK YOU THAT MY

ARM IS HEALED.

AND I BELIEVE THAT THAT

PRAYER IS FOR ME AND I

ACCEPT IT IN JESUS' NAME.

Reporter: AFTER THE

TAPING, THE GROUP TOOK A

TOUR OF CBN.

WE WERE WALKING UP THE

STEPS, AND I NOTICED THAT

I WAS NOT STRUGGLING AS

MUCH AS I WAS EARLIER IN

THE WEEK, WHEN I HAD TO

WALK UP STEPS.

SO WHAT I WOULD DO IS JUST

MOVE IT VERY SLOWLY, THE

WAY THAT I WAS TRYING TO

DO THROUGHOUT THE WEEK,

AND IT WASN'T AS HARD.

IT WAS MUCH FREER.

AT THAT POINT, WHEN I WAS

ABLE TO MOVE IT, IT BARELY

HURT AT ALL.

AND BY THE TIME I WENT UP

TO MY HUSBAND AND MY MOM

TO TELL THEM THAT THE PAIN

WAS TOTALLY GONE, IT WAS

TOTALLY NORMAL AGAIN, AS

IF IT HAD NEVER HAPPENED.

Reporter: BREN HAS

BEEN PAIN-FREE EVER SINCE

AND HAS FULL MOBILITY OF

HER ARM.

SHE SAYS THAT THE HEALING

WAS A REMINDER OF GOD'S

PROMISES.

MY FAMILY LEARNED, BY

SEEING IT HAPPEN TO ME,

THAT GOD DOES ANSWER

PRAYER.

AND I'M SO GLAD THAT WE

VISITED "THE 700 CLUB"

THAT DAY, NOT EVEN KNOWING

OR THINKING THAT A HEALING

WOULD TAKE PLACE.

JUST EXCITED TO COME.

BUT WE GOT DOUBLY BLESSED,

NOT ONLY BY BEING HERE IN

THE AUDIENCE, BUT JESUS

HEALED MY ARM THAT DAY,

TOO.

Terry: YOU KNOW, MOST

OF US BELIEVE THAT GOD

HEALS.

AND WE READ STORIES IN THE

BIBLE OF GOD HEALING.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO REST

ON YOU, IT DEEPENS YOUR

FAITH IN A WAY THAT JUST

IS DIFFERENT FOREVER.

AND SO WE REJOICE WITH

BREN IN HER HEALING.

THAT IS SO WONDERFUL, AND

THAT IT HAPPENED RIGHT

HERE IN OUR STUDIO.

Pat: IT IS SO

EXCITING.

GOD BLESS HER.

WE'VE GOT TO PRAY FOR SOME

PEOPLE.

Terry: THIS IS

SUSANNE, SHE WAS SUFFERING

WITH KNEE PAIN, AND THE

PAIN ACTUALLY PREVENTED

HER FROM WALKING.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND, PAT,

YOU GAVE THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, "YOU TWISTED

YOUR KNEE AND YOU PULLED A

TENDON.

PLACE YOUR HAND ON THE

KNEE THAT IS HURT.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

THE TENDONS ARE COMING

BACK TOGETHER."

SUSANNE ALSO KNEW THAT

WORD WAS FOR HER, AND SHE

CLAIMED IT AND NOW HAS NO

PAIN.

Pat: HERE IS SOMEBODY

WHO HAS GOT AN ISSUE OF

BLOOD.

SHE LIVES IN HONOLULU, AND

SHE WAS PRAYING AND YOU

HAD THAT WORD ABOUT IT.

AND SHE FELT A HEAVY

WARMTH AND SUDDENLY FELT

LIGHTER.

10 MINUTES LATER, THE

DOCTOR CAME IN AND SAID

THE BLEEDING SHE HAD HAD

STOPPED.

SHE HAS HAD NO PROBLEM

SINCE THAT DAY.

SHE HAD THIS STUFF FOR

YEARS, APPARENTLY, AND

THEY COULDN'T STOP IT.

AND GOD SET HER FREE.

> SO WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY -- WE'VE GOT A FEW

MOMENTS TO PRAY FOR YOU.

FATHER GOD -- THERE IS

SOMEBODY WHO IS, LIKE,

SENSING SPIRITS, SOME KIND

OF DEMONIC THING.

AND YOU SEE THESE THINGS

AT NIGHT AND THEY TORMENT

YOU.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS RIGHT

NOW, WE BIND THESE SPIRITS

AND COMMAND THEM TO LEAVE

YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

NOW!

FROM THIS MOMENT ON, YOU

DECLARE THE NAME OF THE

LORD JESUS CHRIST AND THE

BLOOD OF JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU'VE HAD

A CORNEAL TRANSPLANT, AND

YOU'VE HAD TROUBLE WITH

THE HEALING OF IT.

BUT RIGHT NOW GOD IS JUST

MOVING ALL OF WHAT NEEDS

TO BE MOVED RIGHT INTO

PLACE, HEALING WHAT NEEDS

TO BE HEALED, AND YOU ARE

TOTALLY GOING TO BE FINE

FROM THAT.

AND SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

AN ISSUE WITH YOUR AORTA.

AND GOD IS TOUCHING THAT,

HEALING IT, OPENING THINGS

UP.

UP, RESTORING PROPER FLOW

THERE.

Pat: YES.

YES.

SOMEBODY, YOU RIPPED A

TENDON IN YOUR NECK.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT

WAS -- A JERK.

AND IT IS VERY INFLAMED

AND SORE.

PUT YOUR HAND ON THAT

RIGHT NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

TOUCH!

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A LOT OF MENTAL

CONFUSION LATELY.

YOU'RE VERY CONCERNED

ABOUT IT.

YOU THINK IT MIGHT BE

SOMETHING LONG-TERM, BUT

IT IS REALLY NOT.

YOU'RE HAVING A REACTION

TO SOMETHING, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: WHEREVER YOU

ARE, RAISE YOUR HANDS AND

PRAISE GOD.

RECEIVE THE ANSWER THAT

GOD HAS GIVEN YOU.

THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS

DONE.

PRAISE HIM.

CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THAT

BY HIS STRIPES YOU ALREADY

ARE HEALED.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

PROVERBS 16: "COMMIT TO

THE LORD WHATEVER YOU DO,

AND HE WILL ESTABLISH YOUR

PLANS."

> TOMORROW, THE TRUE

STORY BEHIND THE NEW

MOTION PICTURE, "THE CASE

FOR CHRIST."

SO FOR TERRY AND ALL OF

US, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING WITH US TODAY.

COME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB" THE SAME TIME

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
