On CBN Newswatch, May 16: 'I have the absolute right to do it': Trump defends sharing 'terrorism facts' with Russia; US official says Western Wall not part of Israel, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

OUR TOP STORY, THE WHITE

HOUSE IS DENYING

ALLEGATIONS THAT PRESIDENT

TRUMP SHARED HIGHLY

CLASSIFIED INTELLIGENCE

INFORMATION WITH TOP

RUSSIAN OFFICIALS.

THE "WASHINGTON POST"

REPORTED ON MIEWSME MONDAY THAT

THE PRESIDENT SHARED

DETAILS DURING A MEETING

IN THE OVAL OFFICE

INVOLVING INTELLIGENCE

ABOUT A THREAT FROM ISIS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION MOVED

QUICKLY TO DENY THE STORY.

I WAS IN THE ROOM.

IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Charlene: THAT WAS

THE RESPONSE FROM NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR H.R.

McMASTER ABOUT THE

"WASHINGTON POST" STORY.

THE REPORT, WHICH QUOTES

ANONYMOUS SOURCES, SAYS

WHEN THE PRESIDENT SHARED

THAT HIGHLY CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION TO SENIOR

RUSSIAN OFFICIALS AT A

MEETING LAST WEEK, HE PUT

A SOURCE OF INTELLIGENCE

ABOUT ISIS AT RISK.

THE POST, CITING CURRENT

AND FORMER U.S. OFFICIALS,

SAYS THE PRESIDENT SHARED

DETAILS ABOUT AN ISLAMIC

STATE TERROR THREAT,

RELATED TO THE USE OF

LAPTOP COMPUTERS ON

AIRCRAFT.

WITH SERGEI LAVROV AND

SERGEY KISLYAK.

BUT McMASTER SAYS THE

STORY ISN'T CORRECT.

THE STORY THAT CAME OUT

TONIGHT AS REPORTED IS

FALSE.

THE PRESIDENT AND THE

FOREIGN MINISTRY VIEWED A

RANGE OF COMMON THREATS TO

OUR TWO COUNTRIES,

INCLUDING THREATS TO CIVIL

AVIATION.

AT NO TIME -- AT NO TIME

WERE INTELLIGENCE SOURCES

OR METHODS DISCUSSED.

Charlene: AS

PRESIDENT, MR. TRUMP HAS

THE POWER TO DECLASSIFY

INFORMATION, SO HE

WOULDN'T HAVE BROKEN ANY

LAWS.

BUT THE LEADING DEMOCRAT

ON THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE

COMMITTEE IS LOOKING INTO

WHAT EXACTLY WAS SHARED IN

THAT MEETING.

THE CONTROVERSY COMES AS

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SET TO

MEET WITH PRESIDENT

ERDOGAN OF TURKEY TODAY.

THE MEETING WILL LIKELY

CENTER ON THE FRICTION

BETWEEN THE U.S. AND

TURKEY OVER THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION'S DECISION

TO GIVE SYRIAN KURDISH

FIGHTERS POWERFUL WEAPONS

TO FIGHT ISIS.

BUT TURKEY IS AGAINST THAT

MOVE BECAUSE IT CONSIDERS

THOSE SYRIAN KURDS TO BE

TERRORISTS.

ANOTHER CURRENT STICKING

POINT BETWEEN THE TWO

COUNTRIES: ISRAEL.

AS PRESIDENT ERDOGAN

OPPOSES THE U.S. MOVING

ITS EMBASSY FROM TEL AVIV

TO JERUSALEM.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Mark: AND WE TURN NOW

TO ISRAEL, WHERE A

DIPLOMATIC SPAT ERUPTED ON

MONDAY BETWEEN U.S. AND

ISRAELI OFFICIALS AFTER AN

AMERICAN REPRESENTATIVE

QUESTIONED ISRAEL'S CLAIM

TO ONE OF THE HOLIEST

SITES IN JUDAISM.

IT COMES DAYS BEFORE A

PLANNED VISIT BY PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

JOINING ME NOW IS OUR

MIDDLE EAST BUREAU CHIEF

CHRIS MITCHELL.

WELCOME, CHRIS.

Chris: WELCOME, MARK.

Mark: CAN YOU GIVE US

A QUICK OVERVIEW OF WHAT

HAPPENED?

Chris: THE ISRAELI

AND THE AMERICAN TEAMS

RIGHT NOW ARE GOING OVER

THE DETAILS OF THE VISIT.

PART OF THE IDEA IS THAT

ACTUALLY FOR THE FIRST

TIME THAT A SITTING U.S.

PRESIDENT IS PLANNING TO

GO TO THE WALL, THE

WESTERN WALL.

THE ISRAELI TEAM ASKED IF

NETANYAHU COULD JOIN HIM,

AND THEY SAID IT WAS A

PRIVATE VISIT.

AND THEY ASKED THE ISRAELI

TEAM CAN A FILM CREW

ACCOMPANY TRUMP.

AND ONE OFFICIAL SAID,

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING

ABOUT?

IT IS NONE OF YOUR

BUSINESS.

IT IS NOT PART OF YOUR

TERRITORY, IT IS PART OF

THE WEST BANK.

THAT REALLY SET OFF

ISRAELIS WHO KNOW THE

WESTERN WALL IS PART OF

THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND PART

OF A 3,000-YEAR-OLD

HISTORY OF THE JEWISH

PEOPLE TO JERUSALEM, AND

IT UPSET THEM QUITE A BIT.

Mark: TALK A BIT MORE

ABOUT THE REACTION.

WHAT HAS IT BEEN LIKE IN

JERUSALEM?

Chris: WAS A BIG

REACTION HERE.

IT IS VERY SENSITIVE, THE

ISRAELIS TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE, AND THE

CONTROVERSY CENTERS AROUND

JERUSALEM AND WHETHER OR

NOT THERE IS ANY JEWISH

CONNECTION.

THERE WAS A U.N.

RESOLUTION IN DECEMBER

THAT DENIED THAT.

THE PALESTINIANS WANT THAT

AS A FUTURE CAPITAL.

THE BIGGER PICTURE IS THAT

A LOT OF ISRAELIS ARE

SENSING THAT THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS GETTING

CLOSER TO THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY AND PROBABLY

PUTTING JERUSALEM ON THE

TABLE, AND IT IS A GREAT

CONCERN TO THE ISRAELIS

AND TO THE PRIME MINISTER.

Mark: OKAY.

CHRIS MITCHELL, THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME

TODAY.

WE APPRECIATE IT.

Chris: GREAT TO BE

WITH YOU.

Mark: IN OTHER NEWS,

WHO WAS BEHIND THE GLOBAL

RANSOMWARE ATTACK.

A SOUTH KOREAN

CYBER-SECURITY EXPERT SAYS

THERE IS MORE

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE

THAT NORTH KOREA MAY BE TO

BLAME.

SIMON CHOY SAYS NORTH

KOREA IS EXPERIENCED IN

THE WORLD OF BITCOIN AND

HAS BEEN TAKING IT THERE

WAS MALICIOUS COMPUTER

PROGRAMS.

JOHN BAMANECK TOLD CBN

NEWS' ERIC GONZALES, THAT

THERE IS A SOLID LEAD IN

THE INVESTIGATION.

AND HE SAID, WE ARE REALLY

DRILLING DOWN WHAT IT

MEANS, BUT THERE IS PART

OF A CODE BETWEEN WANNACRY

AND A HACKING CODE.

NO ONE HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN

CONNECTED.

> ON MONDAY, THE U.S.

ACCUSED SYRIA OF BURNING

BODIES IN A CREMATORIUM TO

HIDE THE EVIDENCE.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

SAYS THE REGIME HAS KILLED

UP TO 50 PEOPLE A DAY AT

THE PRISON COMPLEX FROM

THE YEARS 2011 TO 2015.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT

RELEASED A PHOTO OF THE

BUILDING.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

IS ALSO HOLDING RUSSIA AND

IRAN ACCOUNTABLE FOR

SUPPORT OF THE KILLINGS.

BETWEEN FIVE AND 15,000

ARE ESTIMATED TO HAVE BEEN

POLITICAL KILLINGS.

> MEMBERS OF THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN CLERGY

ARE SLAMMING PRESIDENT

TRUMP, ON MONDAY GATHERED

IN WASHINGTON TO GIVE HIM

A PROGRESS REPORT.

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL,

TRUMP FAMOUSLY POSED THE

QUESTION TO THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS,

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?

THESE LEADERS SAY THEY

HAVE EVERYTHING TO LOSE,

AND SPOKE ON EVERYTHING

FROM THE ECONOMY TO

JUSTICE AND CRIMINAL

RELATIONS.

THEY SAY AFRICAN-AMERICANS

ARE SUFFERING CONSIDERABLY

MORE NOW UNDER TRUMP

LEADERSHIP.

THEY SAY THEY'RE IN THE

PROCESS OF DRAFTING A

LETTER TO SEND TO HIS

OFFICE.

> COMING UP, THE

PRESCRIPTION DRUG THAT IS

SUPPOSED TO GIVE USERS AN

EXTRA EDGE.

INSTEAD, IT IS SENDING

THEM OVER THE EDGE.

HEAR WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

STOP ADDERALL ABUSE, NEXT.

Mark: YOU MAY HAVE

HEARD OF THE MEDICINE

ADDERALL, IT IS USED TO

TREAT ATTENTION DEFICIT

DISORDER.

14 MILLION YOUNG PEOPLE,

BETWEEN THE AGES OF 20 AND

40 TAKE IT.

MANY THINK IT IS HARMLESS,

BUT THAT ISN'T ALWAYS THE

CASE.

LORIE JOHNSON TELLS US

ABOUT ONE YOUNG MAN WHO'S

ADDERALL ADDICTION LED TO

HIS SUICIDE.

Lorie: SINCE

CHILDHOOD, RICHARD FEE

LIVED A STORYBOOK LIFE,

STRAIGHT "A"s A STAR

ATHLETE AND LOTS OF

FRIENDS.

THEN HE STARTED TAKING THE

PRESCRIPTION DRUG

ADDERALL.

IT CHANGED HIS WHOLE

PROCESS.

Lorie: OVER THE

COURSE OF THREE YEARS,

RICHARD'S LIFE SPIRALLED

OUT OF CONTROL, UNTIL HIS

FATHER FOUND HIM HANGING

IN HIS CLOSET.

THE WORST POSSIBLE

THING YOU CAN EVEN

IMAGINE.

I MEAN, HERE WAS THIS

GREAT KID, THAT HAD

EVERYTHING GOING FOR HIM,

EVERYTHING.

HE WAS A SMART,

GOOD-LOOKING KID, AND THE

ADDERALL JUST DESTROYED

HIM.

Lorie: ADDERALL IS

DESCRIBED FOR PEOPLE WITH

ATTENTION DEFICIT

DISORDER, OR A.D.D.

ADDERALL WORKS ON THE

BRAIN TO HELP THEM FOCUS

BETTER.

BUT SOME PEOPLE WHO DO NOT

HAVE A.D.D. BELIEVE

ADDERALL MAKES THEM FOCUS

BETTER, TOO, SO THEY TAKE

IT TO HELP THEM STUDY.

RICHARD HAD MENTIONED

TO ME THAT HE HAD GOTTEN

AN ADDERALL FROM ONE OF

HIS FRIENDS AT EXAM TIME.

Lorie: HE IS NOT

ALONE.

AN ESTIMATED ONE IN FIVE

COLLEGE STUDENTS USE IT,

LARGELY UNAWARE OF THE

PHYSICAL DANGER AND THAT

IT IS A FELONY TO USE

SOMEONE ELSE'S

PRESCRIPTION.

YOU HEAR IN THE LIBRARY

DURING EXAM WEEK, PEOPLE

ASKING EACH OTHER, I

REALLY NEED AN ADDERALL

PILL.

PEOPLE DO OFFER IT TO EACH

OTHER.

IT IS NOT A BIG DEAL.

Lorie: SOON RICHARD

HIT HIS OWN SUPPLY.

IF YOU GO TO THE DOCTOR

AND YOU TELL THEM YOU HAVE

THE SIGNS OF A.D.D.,

WITHOUT ANY CHECKING,

THEY'LL GIVE YOU A

PRESCRIPTION.

THAT'S BASICALLY WHAT HE

DID.

Lorie: DR. GRETSEN

WATSON RESEARCHES THE

MISUSE OF DRUGS LIKE

ADDERALL.

SHE SAYS IT IS EASY TO

FAKE A.D.D.

IF YOU TALK TO MOST

COLLEGE STUDENTS, THEY

COULD PROBABLY TELL YOU A

DOCTOR OR TWO OR THREE IN

TOWN TO GO TO, AND WHAT TO

SAY AND DO IN ORDER TO GET

A PRESCRIPTION.

Lorie: ADDERALL IS A

CLASS TWO NARCOTIC, AN

AMPHETAMINE SIMILAR TO

COCAINE.

IT CAN BE VERY ADDICTIVE.

YOU CAN GET A EUPHORIC

FEELING WITH A CRASH

AFTERWARDS.

Lorie: AFTER COLLEGE,

RICHARD MOVED BACK HOME

WITH HIS PARENTS AND

CONVINCED TWO SEPARATE

DOCTORS TO EACH PRESCRIBE

HIM ADDERALL.

RICHARD WOULD BE UP FOR

DAYS, BE UP FOR THREE DAYS

IN A ROW, WALKING THE

HOUSE 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 IN

THE MORNING, WIDE AWAKE.

AND THEN HE WOULD CRASH

FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS AND

SLEEP FOR A COUPLE OF

DAYS.

Lorie: THE FEES TRIED

TO GET RICHARD'S DOCTORS

TO STOP PRESCRIBING THE

DRUG.

I SAID, IF YOU KEEP

PRESCRIBING ADDERALL TO MY

SON, YOU'RE GOING TO KILL

HIM.

Lorie: BUT RICHARD

WAS AFTER 18, AND THEY

SAID IT IS PRIVATE.

RICHARD'S DOCTORS BOTH

INCREASED HIS DOSE.

YOU CAN BECOME MORE

SERIOUSLY ADDICTED AND

BECOME PSYCHOTIC AND LOSE

THE ABILITY TO THINK

CLEARLY AND DO THINGS THAT

YOU OTHERWISE WOULDN'T DO.

I HAD SEEN HIM, AND HE

WAS ON THE COMPUTER, AND

HE JUST PUTS LITTLE PIECES

OF SCOTCH TAPE ON HIS

FINGERS BECAUSE HE DIDN'T

WANT THE KEYBOARD TO BE

ABLE TO GET HIS

FINGERPRINTS.

WHY, I DON'T KNOW.

HE WOULD COVER UP THE

CAMERA ON IT BECAUSE HE

FELT LIKE PEOPLE COULD BE

WATCHING HIM.

DURING THIS TIME,

RICHARD IS BECOMING MORE

VIOLENT.

HE WAS MAKING THREATS.

WE WERE SCARED OF OUR OWN

SON DURING THAT TIME.

WE SLEPT WITH OUR DOORS

LOCKED.

Lorie: NOT LONG AFTER

THAT, RICHARD TOOK HIS

LIFE.

THIS NEVER, EVER SHOULD

HAVE HAPPENED.

AND IT WAS THE ADDERALL.

Lorie: PEOPLE

FAMILIAR WITH RICHARD'S

STORY SAYS IT ILLUSTRATES

THE NEED FOR STRICTER

GUIDELINES FOR DIAGNOSING

A.D.D., AND FOR TRYING

NON-FARPHARMACEUTICAL

TREATMENTS BEFORE

PRESCRIBING ADDERALL.

THERE IS CLEAR

INDICATION THAT THE

MEDICINE SHOULD BE, IN

MOST INSTANCES, THE LAST

LINE OF DEFENSE, NOT THE

FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE.

AND THE RESEARCH IS

SHOWING OVER THE

LONG-TERM, THE DRUGS ARE

NOT AS AFFECTIVE AS THE

BEHAVIORAL TREATMENT.

Lorie: THE FEES WANT

CHANGES, REQUIRING DOCTORS

TO NOTIFY PARENTS OF ADULT

CHILDREN WHO ARE IN

DANGER.

AND THERE WAS

INFORMATION THAT THEY HAD

IN THEIR FILE THAT IF THEY

HAD SHARED WITH US AT THAT

TIME, WE'D LIKE TO THINK

THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN

DIFFERENT.

THEY PUT IN RICHARD'S FILE

THAT THEY THOUGHT HE WAS

SUICIDE.

Lorie: THEY SAY

ADDICTS SHOULD FIND A

PROFESSIONAL TO HELP WEAN

THEM OFF OF IT.

ALTHOUGH THE FEES CAN'T

GET THEIR SON BACK, THEY

HOPE TELLING HIS STORY

WILL PREVENT OTHERS FROM

LOSING THEIR LOVED ONES.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Mark WHAT ABOUT THE

POSSIBILITY OF JERUSALEM

BEING DIVIDED, HOW DO YOU

FEEL ABOUT THAT?

NEVER, EVER, IT WILL

EVER HAPPEN.

GIVE THEM HALF.

WHO CARES ABOUT A PIECE OF

GROUND?

Mark: UP NEXT, SCOTT

ROSS TAKES US TO THE

STREETS OF TEL AVIV AND

JERUSALEM.

STAY WITH US; WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

AFTER 2,000 YEARS OF

OCCUPATION BY VARIOUS

WORLD CONQUERERS, JEWISH

WAS FINALLY REUNITED IN

THE 1967 SIX-DAY WAR.

SINCE THEN, THAT VICTORY

HAS TURNED MUCH OF THE WAR

AGAINST ISRAEL AND EVEN

DIVIDED ISRAELIS.

CBN'S SCOTT ROSS TOOK TO

ISRAELI STREETS TO FIND

OUT WHAT PEOPLE THERE

BELIEVE ABOUT THE WAR AND

JERUSALEM.

I WAS IN NEW YORK, AND

I WAS IN AN EXTRAORDINARY

SITUATION.

ALL OF THE TROOPS WERE

LINED UP, WE THOUGHT WE

WERE LOSING ISRAEL

FOREVER.

WE THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY A

GOLIATH STORY.

Reporter: AFTER JUST

THREE DAYS, ISRAELI FORCES

ROUNDED THE JORDANIANS,

REUNITING EASTERN AND

WESTERN JERUSALEM,

INCLUDING THE THE OLD CITY

AND TEMPLE MOUNT.

> WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT

THE SIX-DAY WAR?

IT IS SIGNIFICANT FOR

ALL JEWS.

IT SEEMED TO BE A SYMBOL

EVENT.

I REMEMBER IT LIKE IT

WAS YESTERDAY.

I WAS 20 YEARS OLD.

I REMEMBER WHERE I WAS AT

THAT TIME.

Reporter: WERE YOU IN

THE MILITARY?

YES.

I WAS A YOUNG LIEUTENANT

IN THE DIVISION.

IN THE NORTH, GOLAN

HEIGHTS.

Reporter: REALLY.

DID YOU FIGHT IN THE WAR?

YUP.

Reporter: WHAT'S YOUR

MEMORY OF THAT?

I WAS A SHELL.

WE OVERCAME PHARAOH,

AND WE ALSO OVERCAME

WHATEVER THIS IS NEXT TO

US.

THE SIX-DAY WAR IS

ALMOST LIKE A MYTH TODAY.

Reporter: WHY?

IT WAS A SIGN OF

ISRAEL'S STRENGTH AND ITS

ABILITY TO DEFEND ITSELF

AGAINST ALL ODDS.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE

ISRAELI'S MILITARY D.N.A.

IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT

WAR TO THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL.

Reporter: DO PEOPLE

OF YOUR AGE APPRECIATE

THAT?

I THINK SO.

Reporter: YOU MIGHT

THINK SUCH A VICTORY AFTER

2,000 YEARS WOULD LEAVE NO

ROOM FOR DISCUSSION.

BUT THE BIG WIN PROMPTED

DEMANDS THAT ISRAEL TURN

OVER EASTERN JERUSALEM TO

PALESTINIANS, DIVIDING THE

CITY AS THE POTENTIAL

CAPITAL OF TWO STATES.

I TALKED TO ISRAELIS AND

JEWISH PEOPLE IN TEL AVIV

AND JERUSALEM.

> WHAT ABOUT THE

POSSIBILITY OF JERUSALEM

BEING DIVIDED.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT

THAT?

NEVER, EVER.

IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

NOW, AFTER SO MANY YEARS,

IT IS THE PLAN OF GOD.

Reporter: YOU BELIEVE

IN GOD?

OH, YES.

AND THE PLAN IS TO PUT US

IN JERUSALEM, TO BRING US

BACK TO JERUSALEM, SO WE

CAN PERFECT WHAT HE WANTS

FOR THE HUMAN RACE.

GIVE THEM HALF.

JUST GIVE THEM HALF.

I THINK YOU'LL FIND

PEOPLE WHO SAY WHO CARES

ABOUT A PIECE OF GROUND.

IT'S A SHAME, ANY

ISRAELI SAYING SUCH A

THING MUST BE A THING.

JERUSALEM, THE CITY OF

DAVID, IS THE MOST

IMPORTANT PLACE ON EARTH

FOR THE ISRAELIS, THE

JUDICIAL PEOPLE.

JEWISH PEOPLE.

IT IS OUR ONLY PLACE ON

EARTH.

I THINK WE HAVE KIND OF

MIXED FEELINGS BECAUSE ON

SOME SIDE OF THE STORY IS

HAPPY WE GOT JERUSALEM,

ALL OF JERUSALEM.

AND THE PEOPLE ARE

COMMITTED TO GO TO BOTH

PARTS.

BUT I LOOK FROM THE OTHER

SIDE, AND I SEE THE

SUFFERING AND THE

PALESTINIANS ON THE EAST

SIDE OF JERUSALEM.

I CERTAINLY BELIEVE

THAT JERUSALEM IS THE

ETERNAL CAPITAL OF THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

Reporter: ACCORDING

TO FORMER PRESIDENT

CLINTON'S PEACE ACCORD

FROM THE '90s, EASTERN

JERUSALEM AND THE OLD CITY

WOULD BE DIVIDED ALONG

ETHNIC LINES.

JEWISH NEIGHBORHOODS TO

JEWS, AND ARAB

NEIGHBORHOODS TO ARABS.

IF YOU GO TO EASTERN

JERUSALEM, YOU HAVE ONE

JEWISH NEIGHBORHOOD AND

ONE ARAB.

I WISH WE COULD ALL LIVE

IN PEACE, BUT DIVIDING

JERUSALEM IS NOT A

POSSIBILITY.

Reporter: DO YOU

THINK IT WOULD BRING

PEACE?

I WOULD LIKE TO THINK

SO, BUT I REALLY DON'T

THINK SO.

I THINK SOME PARTS OF

JERUSALEM SHOULD BE THEIR

OWN NATION.

I DON'T THINK THAT WE NEED

EAST JERUSALEM.

Reporter: YOU DON'T

THINK YOU NEED IT?

NO.

Reporter: THE

DIVIDING OF JERUSALEM IS

ABOUT DESTROYING THE STATE

OF ISRAEL.

DIVIDING JERUSALEM IS

ABOUT PUSHING US A LITTLE

FURTHER IN THE DIRECTION

OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA.

ARABS CAN WALK ALL THE

WAY TO THE MARKET FREELY.

TRY TO GO TO EAST

JERUSALEM WITH A FLAG,

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN?

FIRST OF ALL, THE POLICE

ARE GOING TO TELL ME TO

GET OUT BECAUSE YOU

ESCALATED AND AC AGITATED IT.

Reporter: YOU

WOULDN'T BE HAPPY ABOUT

THE CITY BEING UNITED?

DEFINITELY NOT.

IT HAS TO BE UNIFIED, BUT

IN OUR WAY.

Reporter: AND DOES

GOD ENTER INTO THE

EQUATION?

I THINK THERE IS NO

QUESTION THAT JERUSALEM IS

THE CITY OF DAVID.

GOD HAS WATCHED OVER

JERUSALEM FOR MIL MILLENNIA.

FOR 3,000 YEARS.

Reporter: DO YOU PRAY

FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM?

YES.

OF COURSE.

Reporter: DO YOU

THINK YOU'LL GET AN ANSWER

TO THAT PRAYER?

I HOPE SO.

Reporter: SCOTT ROSS

REPORTING FROM JERUSALEM

AND TEL AVIV.

Mark: AND CBN HAS

PRODUCED A DOCUMENTARY

ABOUT THE SIX-DAY WAR.

AND ITS CALLED "IN OUR

HANDS: THE BATTLE FOR

JERUSALEM."

THE FILM HEADS TO THEATERS

MAY 23rd FOR A ONE DAY

EVENT.

Mark: THANKS FOR

STAYING WITH US.

A WORSHIP COLLECTIVE IN

VIRGINIA IS GIVING

CHILDREN THE TOOLS AND

TRAINING TO BECOME WORSHIP

LEADERS.

IT IS CALLED "UNIT WORSHIP

CAMP."

"STUDIO 5" CAUGHT UP WITH

THE GROUP TO SEE WHAT IT

IS ALL ABOUT.

* SO I WILL CALL UPON YOUR

NAME *

Reporter: THIS GROUP

MAKES UP THE 757

COLLECTIVE.

ALL ARE WORSHIP LEADERS

FROM CHURCHES IN HAMPTON

ROADS, VIRGINIA.

I FEEL LIKE THERE IS

POWER IN FOCUSING ON THE

THINGS THAT UNITE US AND

BIND US TOGETHER AS THE

BODY OF CHRIST, RATHER

THAN FOCUSING ON THE

THINGS THAT DIVIDE US.

Efrem: THE

WORSHIPPERS GATHER EACH

MONTH TO COLLABORATE AND

SHARE RESOURCES.

ABOUT A YEAR AGO, THEY HAD

AN IDEA.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

WAS BROUGHT UP IN ONE OF

OUR MONTHLY MEETINGS WAS

ONE OF THE AREAS WE DON'T

REALLY TAP INTO IS OUR

STUDENTS.

WE HAVE SOME EXTREMELY

GIFTED HIGH SCHOOL

STUDENTS IN OUR CHURCHES

THAT I KNOW WE KNOW WOULD

LOVE TO BE PART OF A

WORSHIP TEAM AND DEVELOP

IN THEIR SKILL AND THEIR

ABILITY.

GOD HAS PUT A DESIRE IN

THEIR HEART TO WORSHIP OR

TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT OR

TO SING.

AND HOW CAN WE NURTURE

THAT?

RATHER THAN ALWAYS JUST

APPEALING TO THE ADULTS,

COULD WE ACTUALLY CREATE

SOMETHING WHERE WE RAISE

UP THESE YOUNG WORSHIPPERS

AND YOUNG WORSHIP LEADERS

WHO EVENTUALLY GO INTO OUR

WORSHIP TEAMS AND HELP

LEAD WORSHIP ON SUNDAY

MORNING.

Efrem: THAT THOUGHT

BECAME "UNITE WORSHIP

CAMP."

THEY LEARN THINGS LIKE

STAGING, LIGHTING, SOUND

ENGINEERING, AND, OF

COURSE, SINGING.

*

Efrem: THERE IS EVEN

SONGWRITING.

*

WELL, SONGWRITING IS

KIND OF LIKE COMBINING

ENGLISH CLASS AND WHAT YOU

LEARNED IN POETRY AND YOUR

CREATIVE OUTLOOK ON MUSIC.

WHEN I STARTED WRITING

SONGS A COUPLE OF YEARS

AGO, I WOULD TRY AND KIND

OF FORCE THE LYRICS INTO

THE MUSIC.

WHAT WE LEARNED HERE IS

KIND OF HOW TO MAKE THEM

FLOW TOGETHER BETTER AND

RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME.

Efrem: THE CAMP LASTS

THREE DAYS.

ORGANIZERS HOPE EACH

STUDENT WILL WALK AWAY

WITH LIFE-LONG LESSONS ON

HOW TO USE THEIR UNIQUE

SKILLS TO HONOR GOD.

AND HELP THEM NOT JUST

TO DEVELOP AS A MUSICIAN,

BUT HELP THEM TO LEARN HOW

TO WORSHIP AND LEAD

WORSHIP FROM BEHIND AN

INSTRUMENT OR AS A

VOCALIST ON A WORSHIP

TEAM.

SO YOU'RE NOT JUST GIVING

THEM MUSICAL TRAINING, BUT

YOU'RE ALSO HELPING THEM

TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS

WORSHIP ALL ABOUT.

HOW DO WE WORSHIP GOD,

USING THE GIFTS THAT HE

HAS GIVEN TO US?

THERE IS NO GIVEN WAY

TO WORSHIP.

EACH PERSON HAS THEIR OWN

DIFFERENT STYLE.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE

DANCING.

WORSHIP SIMPLY IS OUR

RESPONSE TO WHO GOD IS.

I THINK IN TODAY'S CULTURE

WE'VE STARTED TO GET A

LITTLE BIT CONFUSED ABOUT

WHO WORSHIP IS FOR.

WE COME TO WORSHIP BECAUSE

WE WANT TO BE REVITALIZED.

WE WANT TO BE REFRESHED.

WE WANT TO BE ENCOURAGED.

WE WANT TO BE INSPIRED.

BUT WHEN WE APPROACH

WORSHIP THAT WAY, WHAT

DOES IT BECOME?

IT BECOMES ABOUT US,

DOESN'T IT?

SO WHEN I THINK OF

WORSHIP, I THINK OF

COMPLETE SURRENDER TO GOD.

I MEAN, AND JUST TO BE IN

AWE OF WHO HE IS.

IF YOU LOOK IN ISAIAH, GOD

REVEALED HIMSELF TO

ISAIAH.

THE TEMPLE WAS FILLED WITH

SMOKE, AND WHAT WAS

ISAIAH'S RESPONSE?

HE FELL TO THE GROUND AND

HE SAID, WHOA IS ME, I AM

UNDONE FOR I AM A MAN OF

UNCLEAN LIPS.

AND HE SAID, HERE I AM,

SEND ME.

Efrem: EFREM GRAHAM,

CBN NEWS.

Mark: AND YOU CAN

LEARN MORE ABOUT 757

COLLECTIVE, GO TO

CBN.COM/"STUDIO 5."

THAT'S IT FOR NOW ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US NEXT

TIME.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.
