On CBN Newswatch, June 28: Why it's too soon to write the obit on the GOP health care bill; Ten Commandments monument destroyed hours after installation at Arkansas Capitol, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THERE WILL BE NO VOTE IN

THE SENATE ON THE HEALTH

CARE BILL BEFORE THE

FOURTH OF JULY RECESS.

THEY MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT

AFTER FAILING TO GET

ENOUGH PARTY SUPPORT TO

BRING THE BILL TO THE

FLOOR FOR THE FULL VOTE.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US MORE.

Reporter: WHAT DO

SENATE REPUBLICANS DO

NEXT?

THAT'S THE QUESTION AFTER

IT TURNED OUT THAT THE

HIGHLY ANTICIPATED VOTE ON

THE SENATE'S VERSION OF

REPEALING AND REPLACING

OBAMACARE WON'T HAPPEN BY

THE PROMISED JULY 4th

DEADLINE, AS THE G.O.P.

STRUGGLES TO FIND THE

SUPPORT TO PASS IT.

MITCHELL McCONNELL

POINTED OUT THAT MAJOR

ACTIONS LIKE THIS ARE

DIFFICULT.

IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'VE

EVER TRIED TO PASS A BIG,

COMPLICATED BILL, THEY'RE

HARD TO PASS.

Reporter: NOW THAT

THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY,

THEY'RE HAVING TO WORK

HARD TO AGREE ON WHAT TO

REPLACE IT WITH.

McCONNELL SAYS THE

PROCESS IS FAR FROM OVER.

WE'RE CONTINUING TO

TALK ABOUT IT.

IT IS A VERY COMPLICATED

SUBJECT.

I REMEMBER HOW CHALLENGING

IT WAS FOR THE DEMOCRATS,

WHEN THEY WERE ENACTING

THIS IN 2010, IT'S A BIG,

COMPLICATED SUBJECT.

WE'VE GOT A LOT OF

DISCUSSIONS GOING ON.

Reporter: LEADER

McCONNELL IS RUNNING

INTO THE SAME ISSUE THE

HOUSE FACED LAST SPRING:

CRAFTING A HEALTH CARE

BILL THAT BOTH

CONSERVATIVES AND

MODERATES SUPPORT.

SENATOR RAND PAUL IS ON

THE CONSERVATIVE SIDE, WHO

OPPOSED THE BILL AS IT

STANDS NOW.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS HE MET

WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP THIS

WEEK, WHO HE SAYS IS OPEN

TO NEGOTIATING THE BILL.

BUT HE HASN'T HEARD FROM

SENATE LEADERSHIP.

IF WE CAN MAKE THE BILL

MORE OF A REPEAL BILL, I

THINK I COULD GET TO THE

POINT WHERE I CAN SUPPORT

IT.

RIGHT NOW I THINK WE KEEP

TOO MANY OF THE OBAMACARE

SUBSIDIES, AND WE HAVE A

BIG, FEDERAL BAILOUT OF

INSURANCE COMPANIES.

Reporter: MODERATES

LIKE SENATOR SUSAN

COLLINS, WHO ARE CONCERNED

WITH BUDGET CUTS AND

ELIMINATING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

SHE SAYS SHE IS OPTIMISTIC

SHE WILL PREVAIL ON THAT

ISSUE, BUT PAUL DISAGREES.

I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD

HAVE ANY MONEY GOING TO

PAY FOR FEDERAL ABORTIONS.

THEY SAY THEY'RE NOT USING

IT FOR ABORTIONS, BUT IF

THEY'RE USING IT TO PAY

THEIR ELECTRICITY TO

PERFORM ABORTIONS, IT IS

THE SAME THING, AS FAR AS

I'M CONCERNED.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOESN'T

DO ANYTHING THAT COMMUNITY

HEALTH CENTERS ALSO DO,

OTHER THAN ABORTIONS.

THE BILL GIVES MORE MONEY

FOR COMMUNITY HEALTH

BILLS.

Reporter: AND HE SAYS

IF THEY WANT TO COVER MORE

PEOPLE FOR HEALTH

INSURANCE, THEY NEED TO BE

HONEST WITH PEOPLE ABOUT

HOW THEY'RE GOING TO PAY

FOR IT.

EVERYBODY WANTS

SOMETHING, THEY THINK IT

IS FOR FREE, AND THEY

DON'T WANT TO PAY ANY

TAXES TO GET IT.

IF YOU WANT MEDICAID

EXPANSION, THERE HAS BE AN

HONEST ACCOUNTING OF HOW

WE PAY FOR IT.

Reporter: DEMOCRATS

ARGUE IT IS FAILING

BECAUSE THE FUTURE OF THE

PROGRAM IS UNCLEAR UNDER

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.

THE INSURANCE COMPANIES

LOOK TO THE FUTURE.

THEY SAY, WHAT IS THE

FUTURE GOING TO BE, AND

WITHIN THAT THEY STRUCTURE

THEIR POLICIES AND SET

THEIR PRICES.

THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO

IDEA WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

THEY CAN'T SET PRICES.

THEY DON'T KNOW IF THERE

IS GOING TO BE A

REQUIREMENT FOR CERTAIN

BENEFITS OR NOT.

SO THEY'RE PULLING OUT OF

THE MARKET BECAUSE THEY

CANNOT PRICE THEIR

PRODUCT.

THEY CANNOT WRITE A

CONTRACT.

AND THEY SAY, WE CAN'T BE

HERE WITHOUT SOME

CERTAINTY.

Reporter: BUT

REPUBLICANS SAY OBAMACARE

WAS COLLAPSING BEFORE

PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS

ELECTED, AND THEY HAVE NO

CHOICE BUT TO REPLACE IT

BEFORE THINGS GET EVEN

WORSE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MEETING

WITH REPUBLICAN SENATORS

TO HELP GAIN SUPPORT OF

THE LEGISLATION, AND SAYS

THEY REALLY WANT TO GET IT

RIGHT.

SENATE LEADERSHIP HOPES

THAT AFTER NEGOTIATING AND

AMENDING THE BILL, THEY'LL

GET THE VOTES THEY NEED

SOON.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THANK YOU.

> AMERICA ISSUED A STERN

WARNING TO SYRIAN

LEADERSHIP WHO MIGHT BE

STAGING ANOTHER CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ATTACK.

IT COMES AFTER U.S.

INTELLIGENCE DETECTED

ACTIONS AT A SYRIAN AIR

FIELD.

ERIC GONZALES HAS REACTION

FROM THE PENTAGON, WHERE

TOP MILITARY LEADERS

CONFIRMED THE U.S. IS

READY TO TAKE ACTION IF

NECESSARY.

Reporter: THIS WAS

THE SCENE BACK IN APRIL,

AFTER SYRIA'S GOVERNMENT

ATTACKED ITS OWN PEOPLE

WITH A CHEMICAL WEAPONS

STRIKE, KILLING MORE THAN

70 MEN, WOMEN, AND

CHILDREN WITH POISONOUS

GAS.

THE HORRIFIC ACTION

PROMPTED PRESIDENT TRUMP

TO ORDER A CRUISE MISSILE

STRIKE A FEW DAYS LATER

AGAINST THE AIR BASE THAT

JETS FLEW OUT OF BEFORE

THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS

ATTACK.

President Trump: IT

WAS A SLOW AND BRUTAL

DEATH FOR SO MANY.

EVEN BEAUTIFUL BABIES WERE

CRUELLY MURDERED IN THIS

VERY BARBARIC ATTACK.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS CALLING THE APRIL

STRIKE A ONE-OFF, MEANT TO

DISCOURAGE FUTURE CHEMICAL

ATTACKS BY SYRIA.

NOW WASHINGTON IS WARNING

ASSAD AND HIS MILITARY, IF

THEY REPEAT THE ACTION,

THEY WILL PAY A HEFTY

PRICE.

A PENTAGON SPOKESMAN

CONFIRMED THAT A

SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY WAS

SPOTTED IN THE SAME SYRIAN

AIR FIELD.

THAT ACTIVITY INVOLVES

SPECIFIC AIRCRAFT IN A

SPECIFIC HANGAR, BOTH OF

WHICH WE KNOW TO BE

ASSOCIATED WITH CHEMICAL

WEAPONS USE.

AND SEAN SPICER SAID IN A

STATEMENT, THE U.S.

IDENTIFIED PREPARATIONS

FOR ANOTHER CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ATTACK BY THE ASAD

REGIME, THAT WOULD LIKELY

RESULT IN MASS MURDER OF

INNOCENT CIVILIANS,

INCLUDING CHILDREN.

AND HE SAID HE AND HIS

MILITARY WILL PAY A HEFTY

PRICE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SERIOUS

ABOUT THAT WARNING.

IF HE DOESN'T BELIEVE

ASSAD IS GETTING THE

MESSAGE, HE COULD EXPAND

THE TARGET SET, WHICH

COULD INCLUDE THE

PRESIDENTIAL PALACE OR

EVEN ASSAD HIMSELF.

Reporter: SYRIA'S

GOVERNMENT DENIES THAT IT

IS PREPARING FOR A

CHEMICAL ATTACK.

HOWEVER, SYRIA'S PRESIDENT

ALSO SAID THE APRIL ATTACK

WAS A FABRICATION.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: ARKANSAS

LEADERS HAVE ALLOWED A NEW

10 COMMANDMENTS MONUMENT

ON THE STATE'S CAPITAL

LAWN.

WORKERS INSTALLED THE

PRIVATPRIVATELY-FUNDED STATUE ON

TUESDAY.

IT HAS SPARKED A PUSH BY

THE SATANIC TEMPLE FOR A

COMPETING STATUE.

THE 10 COMMANDMENT

MONUMENT IS A REPLICA OF

THE DISPLAY IN TEXAS.

THE HIGH COURT HAS STRUCK

DOWN 10 COMMANDMENT

DISPLAYS IN TWO KENTUCKY

AREAS.

> WILDFIRES ARE STRIKING

PLACES IN UTAH AND

ARIZONA.

RESIDENTS IN THE AREA ARE

BEING ORDERED TO EVACUATE

THEIR HOMES.

THE GOODWIN FIREFIGHTER

CLOSED ROADS AND

COMMUNITIES.

THE BLAZE IS ESPECIALLY

HARD TO FIGHT BECAUSE IT

IS TEARING THROUGH THE

BUSH SO QUICKLY.

THE FIRE IS ONLY 1%

CONTAINED.

FIRE OFFICIALS HAVE NOT

BEEN ABLE TO ASSESS THE

DAMAGE.

> DAVID FRIEDMAN MADE

ONE OF HIS FIRST MAJOR

SPEECHES AT THE NEW UNITED

NATIONS AMBASSADOR ISRAEL

IN JERUSALEM.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS

NOW FROM JERUSALEM, DURING

AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

WITH CBN NEWS, HE

DISCUSSED PEACE BETWEEN

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS

AND U.S. RELATIONS IN THAT

REGION.

Chris: AMBASSADOR

FRIEDMAN ADDRESSED AN

ANNUAL MEETING OF A JEWISH

HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATION.

AFTER THE ADDRESS, HE GAVE

CBN NEWS AN EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW AND EXPLAINED

WHY CURRENT NEGOTIATIONS

ARE HELD IN PRIVATE.

IT IS A MISTAKE TO

CHARACTERIZE IT, TO

DEPRIVE ALL OF THE PARTIES

OF PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS,

CANDID CONVERSATIONS,

WHICH I THINK ARE

NECESSARY.

I'M NOT GOING TO GET INTO

IT.

NOT BECAUSE I WANT TO BE

COY.

I JUST THINK IT'S NOT THE

RIGHT WAY TO PROCEED.

Chris: FRIEDMAN SAYS

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S RECENT

MIDEAST TRIP MADE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE REGION.

HE HAS MADE ENORMOUS

STRIDES, I THINK.

I THINK THE TRIP TO SAUDI

ARABIA

SUCCESS BECAUSE OF THAT

THAT8888888888

WHEN YOU HAVE THE

PRIVILEGE TO WORK IN THE

EMBASSY, YOU SEE ALL OF

THE DIFFERENT DIVISIONS,

HOW THEY'RE COMMITTED TO

TRADE AND CULTURAL

EXCHANGE, AND THEY'RE

COMMITTED TO VARIOUS

ECONOMIC INITIATIVES.

IT GOES SO FAR BEYOND THE

POLITICS THAT WE READ IN

THE PAPER EVERY DAY.

THE BOND BETWEEN OUR TWO

COUNTRIES IS

EXTRAORDINARY.

I DON'T KNOW THAT GETS OUT

AS MUCH AS IT SHOULD.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: A CHURCH IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. REACHES

OUT TO SYRIAN REFUGEES.

COMING UP, SEE HOW THEY'RE

PROVIDING FRIENDSHIP,

FINANCIAL HELP, AND HOPE.

Efrem: WHILE

POLITICIANS DEBATE THE

SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS, THE

CHURCH IS STEPPING IN WITH

REAL SOLUTIONS.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON SHOWS US

HOW ONE CONGREGATION IN

WASHINGTON IS DOING WHAT

IT BELIEVES THE BIBLE IS

CALLING THEM TO DO: LOVING

THEIR NEIGHBORS.

Reporter: THIS MAY

LOOK LIKE A REGULAR PRAYER

MEETING, BUT THOSE BEING

PRAYED OVER MAY SURPRISE

YOU.

A MUSLIM FAMILY WHO LEFT

THEIR COUNTRY WHEN ISIS

GUNNED DOWN MANY OF THEIR

NEIGHBORS.

THE FAMILY BURIED THEIR

16-YEAR-OLD SON FOR HOURS

DURING THE RAID TO PROTECT

HIM FROM BEING RECRUITED

TO THE TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION.

MEMBERS FROM NATIONAL

COMMUNITY CHURCH HAVE

GATHERED TO LISTEN TO THE

FAMILY'S STORY AND LEARN

MORE ABOUT WHY THEY FLED

TO THE UNITED STATES.

> HAVE YOU EVER MET ANY

SYRIAN REFUGEES BEFORE?

I DON'T THINK SO.

THE MEDIA GIVES A LOT

OF THAT THEY'RE BAD

PEOPLE; WATCH OUT FOR

THEM.

YOU KNOW?

ALL SORTS OF DANGER.

Reporter: PASTOR DAVE

AND HIS WIFE, KATE, MET

THE FAMILY SHORTLY AFTER

THEY ARRIVED IN THE U.S.

THEY SPOKE NO ENGLISH AND

WERE PLACED IN THE

EXPENSIVE CITY OF

WASHINGTON, D.C.

THE RESETTLEMENT AGENCY

COVERED EXPENSES FOR ONLY

THREE MONTHS.

THE FATHER, BASHIR, ONCE

AN ELECTRICIAN, NOW FEELS

HELPLESS.

IN SYRIA, HE WAS VERY

STRONG.

HE WAS A PROVIDER.

HE HAD A SURE SKILL SET

AND A PROFESSION.

HERE HE FEELS LOST.

HE IS WORKING REALLY HARD

TO LEARN ENGLISH, BUT THE

PRESSURE TO GET FINANCIAL

SECURITY IS PRETTY STRONG.

Reporter: KATE AND

DAVE REALIZED TWO MAJOR

THINGS MISSING IN BASHIR'S

FAMILY RESETTLEMENT

PROCESS: FRIENDSHIP AND

INCOME.

THEY OPENED UP THEIR HOME

TO SOLVE BOTH OF THOSE

ISSUES.

WHAT IS MISSING IS

FRIENDSHIP, RELATIONSHIP.

IT'S A MEAL.

Reporter: THEY LEARN

TO MAKE A SYRIAN DISH

CALLED LOBME, A TYPE OF

CHEESE.

AND EACH PERSON ALSO GAVE

MONEY TOWARDS THE FAMILY'S

RENT.

THEY'RE JUST SHARING

THEIR STORIES, AND WE'RE

JUST PRAYING FOR THEM.

Reporter: BUT WHAT

YOU SEE HAPPENING HERE IS

EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

ACROSS THE NATION, 73%,

JUST THE GENERAL

POPULATION, AVOIDS

CONVERSATIONS WITH

MUSLIMS.

YOU TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF

RISK TO CUT PAST THE

RHETORIC AND THE OPINIONS,

TO GET INVOLVED IN AREAS

THAT ARE CONTROVERSIAL,

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE

BEHIND THESE TOPICS AND

THESE ISSUES.

Reporter: LEAD PASTOR

MARK BATTERSON FOUND THAT

OUT AFTER HIS WIFE

RETURNED FROM A REFUGEE

MISSIONS TRIP.

HER HEART STARTED TO

BREAK FOR WHAT I BELIEVE

BREAKS THE HARD OF GOD.

AND WHEN YOUR WIFE HAS THE

HEART FOR SOMETHING, AS

HER HUSBAND, YOU GET A

HEART FOR IT.

Reporter: PASTOR

BATTERSON BELIEVES IF

CHURCHES MOVE PAST THE

POLITICS, THEY CAN CHANGE

THE COURSE OF THIS CRISIS.

SOMETIMES WE CONFUSE

POLITICAL ISSUES WITH

BIBLICAL ISSUES.

MY HOPE AND PRAYER WOULD

BE THAT THE CHURCH WOULD

RECOGNIZE THIS IS ONE OF

THE GREATEST CRISIS OF OUR

GENERATION.

AND HOW WE RESPOND TO IT

MIGHT JUST DEFINE OUR

FUTURE AS A CHURCH.

Reporter: N.C.C.

PLANS TO HOST MORE OF

"LISTEN AND LEARN" EVENTS

WITH DIFFERENT REFUGEE

FAMILIES IN THE FUTURE.

AS FOR BASHIR, HE STARTED

A HANDYMAN SERVICE WITH

THE HELP OF KATE, WITH THE

HOPES OF ONE DAY BECOMING

SELF-SUFFICIENT IN

AMERICA.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Efrem: A POLICE

OFFICER WALKS OFF THE JOB

TO FOLLOW HIS PASSION.

SEE HOW THIS WORSHIP

LEADER IS NOW TRANSFORMING

HIS COMMUNITY WITH A

MESSAGE OF HEALING.

Efrem: A POLICE

OFFICER WALKED OFF THE JOB

TO PURSUE HIS FASHION: A

CAREER IN MUSIC.

BUT THE REAL TWIST TO THIS

STORY IS THE OFFICER'S

ENCOUNTER WITH A STRANGER

WHO TOLD HIM EVERYTHING HE

ALREADY KNEW.

SOUND BIBLICAL?

TAKE A LOOK.

FROM CHARLOTTE NORTH

CAROLINA, TO BATON ROUGE,

LOUISIANA, DEADLY POLICE

SHOOTINGS SHOOK THESE

CITIES.

CHAOS, RIOTS, AND RACIAL

STRIFE SOMETIMES FOLLOWED.

THOUGH MILES AWAY, THESE

RECURRING INCIDENTS HIT

CLOSE TO HOME FOR THIS

FORMER POLICE OFFICER.

TERRENCE HOWELL JOINED THE

POLICE DEPARTMENT YEARS

AGO, HOPING TO MAKE CHANGE

IN HIS COMMUNITY.

AS A POLICE OFFICER,

YOU'RE WIRED DIFFERENTLY.

MOST PEOPLE, WHEN THEY

HEAR GUNSHOTS, THEY'RE

RUNNING AWAY FROM WHERE

THE SHOTS ARE COMING FROM.

AS A POLICE OFFICER,

YOU'RE TRAINED TO GO TO

WHERE THOSE SHOOTS ARE

GOING OFF.

Reporter: FRANKLIN'S

POLICE CHIEF STILL

REMEMBERS TERRENCE FOR

THAT LITTLE SOMETHING

EXTRA HE BROUGHT TO THE

JOB.

WE COME INTO THIS

BUSINESS WITH THE THOUGHT

THAT WE'RE GOING TO CHANGE

THE WORLD AND DO GOOD

THINGS.

IN THE FIVE YEARS THAT

TERRENCE WAS WITH US, HE

DID GOOD THINGS AND HE

CHANGED AT LEAST THE

IMPRESSIONS OF MANY PEOPLE

IN THIS COMMUNITY IN A

FAVORABLE SENSE, AS TO HOW

POLICE OFFICERS IN THIS

CITY ARE VIEWED AND

TRUSTED.

Efrem: TERRENCE'S

FAITH FIELDS HIS WORK

ETHIC, BUT IT ALSO

TRIGGERED A CHANGE.

SO YOU'RE COMFORTABLE,

YOU'RE SERVING THE FORCE,

YOU'RE DOING WHAT MANY

WOULD BE CONSIDERED AN

HONORABLE CAREER, AND TO

BE A MAN OF COLOR DOING

IT, TOO, ALSO HONORABLE.

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

IS THERE WRESTLING INSIDE

YOU?

WHAT'S GOING ON?

GROWING UP, I ALWAYS

WANTED TO BE A MUSICIAN.

MUSIC IS SOMETHING THAT

VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,

RUNNING THROUGH MY FAMILY.

MY FAMILY IS BASICALLY A

FAMILY OF MUSICIANS AND

MINISTERS, AND I WANTED TO

ALSO BE A MUSICIAN.

I CAN REMEMBER MANY A

TIMES, ESPECIALLY WHEN I

WAS WORKING ON NIGHT

SHIFT, I WOULD LIKE HAVE

THOUGHTS AND DECISIONS,

WHAT IF?

WHAT IF I PURSUED MUSIC?

WHAT IF I GAVE IT A SHOT?

I WONDER WHAT COULD

HAPPEN?

AND I WILL ALWAYS HAVE

THAT IN THE BACK OF MY

MIND.

BUT THEN REALITY WILL SET

IN, THIS IS WHAT I'M DOING

NOW.

Efrem: TERRENCE

CONVINCED HIMSELF LAW

ENFORCEMENT WAS THE RIGHT

CAREER, UNTIL AN UNUSUAL

ENCOUNTER COMPLETELY

CHANGED THE DIRECTION OF

HIS LIFE.

I WAS ACTUALLY THINKING

ABOUT MUSIC, AND ACTUALLY

THINKING ABOUT A CAREER IN

MUSIC, WHEN I WAS SERVING

SUBPOENAS.

AND ONE DAY I WAS JUST

GOING DOOR TO DOOR,

HANGING SUBPOENAS ON THE

DOOR.

AND THERE WAS AN OLDER

GENTLEMAN WHO WAS JUST

WATCHING ME FROM HIS FRONT

PORCH, ROCKING BACK AND

FORTH.

JUST WATCHING ME.

Efrem: THE MAN CALLED

OUT TO TERRENCE.

HE CALLED TO ME.

HE SAID, YOUNG MAN -- HE

DIDN'T SAY OFFICER.

HE SAID, YOUNG MAN, COME

HERE.

SO I CAME TO WHERE HE WAS.

HE PULLED HIMSELF UP ON

THE RAILING, AND HE LOOKED

AT ME SQUARE IN MY EYES

AND HE SAID, WHEN ARE YOU

GOING TO PUT THAT BADGE

AND GUN DOWN AND BEGIN

YOUR REAL WORK, SON.

Efrem: IN SHOCK,

TERRENCE ASKED THE MAN TO

REPEAT WHAT HE SAID.

YOUR REAL WORK IS IN

THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

YOUR REAL WORK IS IN

MINISTRY.

AND THERE IS ONLY SO FAR

YOU CAN GO WEARING THAT

BADGE AND GUN.

IT IS TIME TO PUT IT DOWN

AND BEGIN YOUR REAL WORK.

Efrem: HE HAS NEVER

SEEN THAT MAN AGAIN.

I KNEW IT WAS OF GOD.

SO I MADE THAT DECISION

RIGHT THEN TO TAKE THE

LEAP OF FAITH AND TO JUMP.

Efrem: THAT LEAP HAS

PROPELLED TERRENCE INTO A

SUCCESSFUL MUSIC CAREER.

IN 2014, HE LAUNCHED

"REVIVAL MUSIC" COMPANY.

AND IT IS MORE THAN JUST

THE LABEL.

TERRENCE SAYS IT IS A

MOVEMENT TO BRING UNITY

AND HEALING ACROSS DIVERSE

COMMUNITIES.

MY JOY FROM TODAY'S

SESSION WAS BRINGING IN

PEOPLE TOGETHER, PEOPLE OF

DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS,

DIFFERENT RACES, COMING

TOGETHER, UNITED IN ONE

GOAL.

AND THAT'S TO WORSHIP AND

TO SHOW LOVE TO ONE

ANOTHER.

Efrem: IT INCLUDES

MUSICIAN JOSEPH STALLINGS

AND SHARON JACKSON.

I'VE BEEN IN A LOT OF

GROUPS AND PLAYED A LOT OF

MUSIC AND SANG A LOT OF

SONGS, BUT WHAT IS

DIFFERENT ABOUT "REVIVAL"

WORSHIP IS THAT IT IS NOT

ABOUT THE SONG OR ABOUT

THE MUSIC, WHEN IT COMES

DOWN TO IT, IT IS ABOUT

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

PEOPLE.

EACH PERSON IS

IMPORTANT.

AND THE OTHER THING I LOVE

IS WE ARE SO DIFFERENT.

AND I LOVE THAT.

I THINK THAT SAYS A LOT IN

OUR CULTURE, WHEN WE'RE

FROM DIFFERENT CHURCHES,

WE'RE FROM DIFFERENT

ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS, FROM

DIFFERENT PLACES, AND

WE'RE ABLE TO COME

TOGETHER AND MAKE THIS

REALLY COOL MUSIC

TOGETHER.

Efrem: IT'S A SOUND

TERRENCE SAYS ALWAYS

CARRIES A SPECIAL MUSIC.

HIS NEW SONG, "UNTAINTED

LOVE," IS NO DIFFERENT.

THIS LOVE THAT HE HAS

FOR US IS UNTAINTED.

IT IS NOT TAINTED WITH THE

EXPECTATIONS OF I FELL

SHORT OF HIS GLORY TODAY.

I DIDN'T QUITE MEASURE UP

AS A CHRISTIAN TODAY OF

WHERE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

BUT HIS LOVE GOES BEYOND

THAT.

IT TRANSCENDS ALL OF THAT.

Efrem: IT IS A

POWERFUL MESSAGE TERRENCE

HOPES WILL TRANSFORM

LIVES, HEAL COMMUNITIES,

AND BRIDGE THE DIVIDE.

*

* GOD, WE THANK YOU

MUSIC, SIMPLY CHECK THEM

OUT BY SEARCHING REVIVAL

Efrem: CBN HAS
