> CONFUSED AND BETRAYED

BY HER OWN

DESIRES.

I COULDN'T SHARE WITH

ANYBODY BECAUSE

I KNEW IT WASN'T RIGHT.

I KNEW GIRLS WAS SUPPOSED TO

LIKE

BOYS.

HOW SHE TURNED HER BACK

ON GOD.

WHY ME? I REALLY DESPISE

GOD.

SHE'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME

TO THIS

SHOW. HERE IS A LOOK AT MY

TOP FIVE

FROM THIS WEEK ON STUDIO 5.

AT NO. 5.

CITY OF CHICAGO WRAPS UP

IT'S

ANNUAL LOLA PALOOZA

FESTIVAL.

CHANCE JOINED FRANCIS AND

THE LIKE TO

HAVE THIS DANCE AND EVEN

PERFORMED

THIS DANCE NUMBER.

NO. 4.

WE HEAD TO CANTON, OHIO.

ANY GIFT THAT A PARENT CAN

GIVE TO

THEIR CHILD IS SAYING YES TO

SPENDING

TIME WITH HIM.

IN OHIO INDUCTED INTO THE

HALL OF

FAME.

WARNER IS A CLASS ACT AND A

VOCAL MAN

OF FAITH.

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE

CROSS

ULTIMATELY DEFINED JESUS AND

ALL

ABOUT IT.

WHAT MANY SAW AS THE LAW WAS

OUR

GREATEST WIN. HE WON.

ONE MORE GREATEST.

HE FINISHED AS THE HALL OF

FAME

INDUCTION.

WHERE NFL SUPER STAR ISSUES

A

POWERFUL CALL AND MADE

TRIBUTE TO HIS

GREAT GRANDFATHER GEORGE.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS

BROUGHT TO HERE

AS A SLAVE FROM WEST AFRICA.

HIS LAST NAME WAS TOMLINSON.

WHAT GREAT COURAGE IT MUST

HAVE TAKEN

HIM TO REBUILD HIS LIFE

AFTER THE

LIFE HE WAS BORN TO WAS

STOLEN.

MY NAME BEGAN WITH THE MAN

WHO OWNED

MY GREAT, GREAT, GREAT

GRANDFATHERS.

NOW IT'S PROUDLY CARRIED BY

ME, MY

CHILDREN, MY EXTENDED FAMILY.

THE FAMILY LEGACY THAT BEGAN

IN SUCH

A CRUEL WAY HAS GIVEN BIRTH

TO

GENERATIONS OF SUCCESSFUL

CARRYING

TOMLINSONS.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT GOD

CHOSE ME TO

HELP BRING TWO RACES

TOGETHER ON THE

ONE LAST NAME, TOMLINSON.

AND NO. 2.

YOU CARRIED APRIL?

NO, I MARRIED HER.

FANS OF THE MOST TV

FAMILY-FRIENDLY SHOW "THE

MIDDLE" ARE

FINALLY GETTING TO SAY

GOOD-BYE. THE

SHOW DEBUT IN 2009.

SHE ASKED ME WHAT TIME I

WILL BE

HOME AND WE HAVE GOT TO MOVE.

THEY ARE CUTE.

AT NO. 1.

THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD

HAS MADE.

LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD

IN IT.

MINISTRY COULD BE THE

NEXT MOVE

FOR HILLARY CLINTON.

THAT COULD BE ON THE ARTICLE

FROM

CLINTON'S PASTOR CALLED

"STRONG FOR A

MOMENT LIKE THIS".

THESE ARE THE SCRIPTURES HE

SENT TO

HER DAILY.

TO VISIT THE HUNGRY, AND

VISIT THE

SICK.

CLINTON RECENTLY TOLD HER

PASTOR

SHE WANTS TO PREACH.

SCRIPTURE TELLS US THAT

FAITH

WITHOUT WORDS IS DEAD.

YOU MAY BE SURPRISED THAT

HILLARY

CLINTON IS CONSIDERING

MOVING TO THE

MINISTRY BUT THIS IS NOT THE

FIRST

TIME THIS HAS BEEN REVEALED.

BACK IN 1994, KENNETH WOOD

WORTH SAID

SHE WAS THINKING ABOUT THE

MINISTRY

AND THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE

HER LIFE

CALLING. THE BOOK IS CALLED

"STRONG

FOR A MOMENT LIKE THIS"

WRITTEN BY

CLINTON'S PASTOR.

IT STARTED WITH SCRIPTURES

HE STARTED

TO SEND HER AND THIS LASTED

FOR MORE

THAN A YEAR. HE WOULD GET UP

EVERY

MORNING AT 4:00 AND FIND

SCRIPTURE

AND SEND IT TO HER AND FIND

A

PERSONAL DEVOTIONAL EVERY

SINGLE DAY.

CLINTON SPENT A LOT OF TIME

IN

CHICAGO AND THIS SENDS

ANOTHER ONE.

FROM LOLA PALOOZA AND THE

HOMETOWN

CREW. HE WRITES ABOUT HIS

FAITH AND

TALKS ABOUT HIS FAITH ALL

THE TIME.

BUT WHAT I HAVE LEARNED IS

HE'S BEEN

GRINDING OUT OF CHICAGO FOR

2 YEARS.

AND HE'S BEEN ON THIS

JOURNEY FOR A

VERY LONG TIME. WARNER

INDUCTED TO

THE HALL OF FAME.

VERY NICE TO SEE THAT HAPPEN.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL LESSON HE

SHARED AS

A FATHER THAT WE NEED TO

SPEND MORE

TIME WITH OUR CHILDREN AND

THAT IS

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON

GIVING.

TOMLINSON ALSO INDUCTED TO

THE

FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STORY.

IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE

SPEECH HE

GAVE ACCEPTING THAT AWARD

AND HONOR.

YOU NEED TO RUN, NOT WALK TO

YOUR

COMPUTER.

RUN.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL SPEECH ON

RACIAL

UNITY.

HE TALKS ABOUT HIS GREAT,

GREAT,

GREAT, GRANDFATHER.

AND HE VISITED THE LAND

WHERE HIS

GRANDFATHER TOILED THE

FIELDS.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STORY AND

WHAT A

PASSIONATE PLEA. HE'S ALSO A

MAN OF

FAITH AND KNOWS THAT GOD

PROMISES IF

HE WOULD BE FAITHFUL TO HIM,

HE WOULD

SHOW HIM THINGS HE WOULD

NEVER

IMAGINED AND THAT IS TO BE

INDUCTED

TO THE HALL OF FAME

INDUCTION IN

OHIO.

FOR MORE INFORMATION, YOU

CAN FIND

OUT MORE INFORMATION ON ROKU

TV AND

STUDIO 5 ONLINE.

UP NEXT, A MAN WHO

BROUGHT

AWARENESS TO A LIFE CHANGING

DISEASE.

YOU WILL MEET DR. BENNETT

Efrem: NEARLY 15 YEARS AGO

AFTER

VIEWING DECEASED FOOTBALL

PLAYERS,

DRO BENNETT OMALU CAME UP

WITH A

DIAGNOSIS FOR THIS DISEASE.

HE BUILDS TEAMWORK AND

LETTING

KIDS PLAY CONTACT SPORTS IS

WORSE

THAN PARENTS REALIZE. THIS

CONDITION

DISCOVERED BY DR. BENNETT

OMALU AND

DISCOVERED HEAD TRAUMA.

PEOPLE WITH

THIS DISEASE WHERE DR. OMALU

HE TELLS

PARENTS HOW TO KEEP KIDS

SAFE ON THE

FIELD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

BEING

HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME

HERE.

I FEEL THAT YOU WERE BORN

FOR THIS

JOB. YOU WERE BORN IN

NIGERIA DURING

THE CIVIL WAR.

HOW DIFFICULT WAS YOUR

CHILDHOOD?

WELL, MY CHILDHOOD, I WAS

BORN AS

A REFUGEE.

THE FIRST 3 YEARS OF MY LIFE

I

SUFFERED MALNUTRITION, I

SUFFERED THE

PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMAS OF WAR.

EARLY ON I BEGAN TO STRUGGLE

WITH

DEPRESSION AND I WAS JUST A

VERY

SOCIALLY MALL ADJUSTED CHILD.

IN DOING THAT, I DISCOVERED

THAT WE

ALL ARE MEMBERS OF ONE

ANOTHER. I

BEGAN TO DISCOVER MY FAITH

JOURNEY.

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

MY JOURNEY TO AMERICA.

A BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY. NOW,

YOUR

NAME HAS A VERY SPECIAL

SIGNIFICANCE.

TELL US WHAT THAT MEANS?

WHEN I WAS BORN, MY

FATHER WAS HIT

BY ONE OF THE BOMBS DROPPED

BY THE

NIGERIAN ARMED FORCES. HE

WAS BROUGHT

TO THE SAME REFUGEE HOSPITAL

WHERE I

WAS. A COUPLE OF WEEKS

LATER, WHEN HE

WAS RELATIVELY RECOVERING, I

WAS

PLACED, I WAS HANDED TO HIM

AND HE

PLACED ME IN HIS BOSOM AND

HE GAVE ME

THE NAME BENNETT, FOR

BENNETT IS A

BLESSING ONTO MY LIFE FOR

THE FRENCH

WORD BENOI, TO BLESS. THEN

HE GAVE ME

AN AFRICAN NAME WHICH IS

LIFE.

THAT WAS THE NAME OF THE

DOCTOR

TOO?

YES. THE DOCTOR THAT

DELIVERED ME.

AND IT'S A SHORT-TERM

FROM MY LOSS

--

[ LAUGHTER ]

HE WHO KNOWS MUST COME

FORWARD.

LIKE MY JOURNEY IN

AMERICA.

CERTAINLY.

HE WHO KNOWS MUST COME IN

SPEAK AND

IN 2003.

YOU ARE VIEWING THE BRAIN OF

A

DECEASED FOOTBALL PLAYER.

YES.

I SAW IN THE BRAIN THAT I

HAD NOT

SEEN BEFORE IN THE ATHLETES

OUTSIDE

THE BOXES.

I THOUGHT I WAS DELUSIONAL

AND SO I

TOOK IT TO OTHER DOCTORS TO

CONFIRM

WHAT I WAS SEEING. THEY

CONFIRMED

WHAT I SAW. THEY WERE MUCH

OLDER,

MORE EXPERIENCED DOCTORS.

SO, THEIR CONSENSUS WAS TO

GIVE ME

THIS NAME.

BUT AS A FORENSIC

PATHOLOGIST, I KNEW

THAT I JUST COULDN'T GIVE IT

ANY NAME

I WANTED LIKE DEMENTIA OR

SOME KIND

OF DISEASE. I RECOGNIZED

THIS WAS AN

OCCUPATIONAL HAZARD WHICH

WILL END UP

IN A COURT OF LAW. AND THERE

IS A

DOUBLE STANDARD IN THE

AMERICAN LEGAL

SYSTEM THAT STATES FOR

SCIENTIFIC

EVIDENCE TO BE ADMITTED AS

EVIDENCE

IN A COURT OF LAW, IT NEEDS

TO HAVE

PRECEDENCE.

SO I NEEDED TO SEARCH WHAT

ARE THE

NAMES THAT I COULD USE FOR

THIS

DISEASE.

TRAUMATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY

DOESN'T

MEAN ANYTHING.

IF I COULD PROVE IT DOWN THE

ROAD, I

WOULD HAVE SOME WIGGLE ROOM

TO SAY,

IT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING.

[ LAUGHTER ]

Efrem: WE KNOW FROM THAT

FOOTBALL

PLAYER EXPERIENCE YOU VIEW

ON THE

AUTOPSY TABLE.

THAT THIS MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE,

ADVANTAGE WOULD BE

CELEBRATED BUT IT

WASN'T.

YES, THE NFL CAME AFTER

ME, NOT

ONLY NFL BUT INCLUDING

DOCTORS DOING

THE RESEARCH AND INCLUDING

THE

NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH.

EVERYBODY CAME AND

OSTRACIZED ME AND

DISMAYED ME AND I WAS

LABELED

DANGEROUS SAYING I WAS

PRACTICING

AFRICAN VOODOO.

I PRACTICED MY FAITH.

I'M A CHRISTIAN AND

EPHESIANS TELL US

THAT WE ARE BOUNDED BY

PEACE.

WHATEVER WE DO, WE DO FOR

ALL OF US

BECAUSE WE ARE ALL MEMBERS

OF ONE

ANOTHER. AND GOD IS IN ALL

THINGS.

GOD IS TRUTH, GOD IS LIGHT.

AS LONG AS YOU PROFESS THE

TRUTH OF

GOD.

COME WITH ME, THE TRUTH WILL

PREVAIL.

AS LONG AS IT IS FOR THE

GOOD OF ALL.

I BELIEVE WHAT I SAW WAS FOR

THE GOOD

OF ALL INCLUDING THE GOOD OF

FOOTBALL. ESPECIALLY OUR

CHILDREN.

OUR CHILDREN ARE GAPES OF

THE LIFE OF

GOD. THE SPIRIT OF GOD. GOD

GAVE US

THE GIFT OF LIFE IN A CHILD.

AS

CHRISTIANS, WE ARE BOUND TO

PROTECT

NOURISH AND CHERISH THAT

GIFT OF LIFE

BECAUSE IT IS THE GIFT OF

ALL. HAVING

SAID THAT AS A CHRISTIAN,

KNOWING

WHAT WE KNOW TODAY IN 2017,

THERE WAS

NO REASON WHATSOEVER ANY

CHILD UNDER

THE AGE OF 18 IN AMERICA

SHOULD

CONTINUE TO PLAY THE HIGH

IMPACT,

HIGH CONTACT COLLISION

SPORTS. THE

BIG SIX ARE FOOTBALL,

HOCKEY, RUGBY,

BOXING AND WRESTLING. WHY?

IF YOU

PLAY FOOTBALL WITHOUT A

HELMET THERE

IS A 100% RISK EXPOSURE TO

PERMANENT

DAMAGE. 100% BECAUSE THERE

IS NO SAFE

BLOW TO THE HEAD. STUDIES

HAVE BEEN

DONE ON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

WHO HAVE

PLAYED JUST FOR ONE SEASON.

AFTER ONE SEASON, WITH OR

WITHOUT A

HELMET, THIS SHOWS BRAIN.

WE SEE 1-3 MILLION

CHILDREN FROM

AGE 16 PLAYING FOOTBALL.

YES, CHILDREN SHOULD PLAY

NON-IMPACT CONTACT SPORTS.

AS YOU SEE IN THE OLYMPIC

GAME.

LIKE I EXPLAIN IN MY BOOK.

SWIMMING,

BASKETBALL, BADMINTON,

TENNIS.

THEY LOOKED AT 1.1 MILLION

CHILDREN

IN OVER 4 YEARS. IF YOU

SUFFER AT

LEAST ONE CONCUSSION IN

SPORTS YOU

ARE LIKELY TO DIE BY THE AGE

OF 42.

YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO

COMMIT

SUICIDE AND INCLUDING MAJOR

DEPRESSION AND ALSO

PRODUCING VIOLENT

BEHAVIOR AND ALCOHOL ABUSE.

HAS THIS FILM

"CONCUSSION" MADE A

DIFFERENCE?

THERE IS NO QUESTION

ABOUT IT, THE

CONCUSSION MOVIE HAS BEEN

VERY

SUCCESSFUL.

IT'S PART OF OUR SOCIETY.

I THINK IT'S BECAUSE OF THE

GOODWILL

OF WILL SMITH.

HE'S A SHINING LIGHT AND A

GOOD HUMAN

BEING. BECAUSE OF THE LOVE

IN HIS

HEART, HE'S HELPED US TO

SPREAD THE

GOOD MESSAGE, LET US PLEASE

PROTECT

OUR CHILDREN.

Efrem: INDEED.

SITTING HERE WITH YOU IN AN

INTERVIEW

WITH HIM, HE HAS CAPTURED

YOU.

[ LAUGHTER ]

HE GOT YOUR VOICE, THE LAUGH.

HE SAYS THAT YOUR LAUGH IS A

TESTAMENT TO WHAT IT MEANS

TO BE AN

AMERICAN.

HE SAID THAT IN THE BOOK.

I ENJOYED READING THAT.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

MORE

FROM DR. BENNETT OMALU. HIS

BOOK IS

CALLED "TRUTH DOESN'T HAVE A

SIDE".

AND YOU CAN FIND IT WHEREVER

BOOKS

ARE SOLD. DR. OMALU, THANK

YOU FOR

COMING.

PLUS, SHE WAS GONE FOR

LONG HOURS

AND NOT ALWAYS HOME.

I NEEDED THAT LOVE AND

THAT

EMBRACE.

FIND OUT HOW THAT LOVE

SENT HER ON

A DOWNWARD SPIRAL AWAY FROM

GOD. WHEN

Efrem: EVERYDAY, SOPHIA

HAS BUSTED

OUT HER SMARTPHONE AND SHE'S

DONE

SOMETHING THAT WARRIORS SAY

SHE CAN

NOT.

SHE'S BEEN DELIVERED FROM A

LESBIAN

LIFESTYLE.

CELLULAR SOPHIA -- SHOWS

HER DAILY

LIFE ON FACEBOOK.

SHE DESCRIBES HER CANDID

STORY ABOUT

HOW SHE WAS DELIVERED FROM

HOMOSEXUALITY.

PEOPLE SAY ONCE GAY YOU

ARE ALWAYS

GAY.

PEOPLE CAN BE FREE FROM

HOMOSEXUALITY. GOD IS A

DELIVERER.

HER CHILDHOOD, A FAR CRY

FROM

WORKING IN CHICAGO. HER MOM

WORKED

LONG HOURS AND HER DAD WAS

NEVER AT

HOME.

I NEEDED THOSE HUGS AND

EMBRACE.

IN THIRD GRADE, SHE

DEVELOPED A

CRUSH ON A FEMALE TEACHER

WHO

AFFIRMED HER AND ENCOURAGED

HER.

SHE STARTED CALLING ME

PRETTY.

COME HERE, PRETTY GIRL.

SHE STARTED DOING MY HAIR. I

DID AND

STARTED TO FEEL THINGS I

COULDN'T

SHARE WITH ANYBODY.

I KNEW I WAS SUPPOSED TO

LIKE BOYS.

SHE STARTED HANGING OUT

WITH BOYS

AND PLAYING BASKETBALL WITH

THEM. SHE

BEGAN TO BE BULLIED AND SHE

RESORTED

TO WHAT SHE KNEW WHICH WAS

TO FIGHT.

WHEN SOMEONE CALLED ME

TOMBOY OR

BUTCH, I WOULD FIGHT THEM.

SHE WAS MOLESTED AND THE

ABUSE

LASTED FOR 4 YEARS. SHE

NEVER TOLD

ANYONE ABOUT IT.

I SAID, WHY ME? THEN I

REALLY

DESPISED GOD.

BECAUSE NOW I'M GAY AND NOW

MOLESTED

AND VIOLATED.

BY NOW, SOPHIA'S

BASKETBALL SKILL

WAS SO GREAT THAT SHE MADE

THE

VARSITY TEAM.

WHEN I WAS PLAYING

VARSITY, I MET

GIRLS WHO WERE IN THE

LESBIAN

LIFESTYLE AND THEY WERE OKAY

WITH IT.

SHE EVENTUALLY BEGAN TO

WEAR BAGGY

CLOTHES AND WAS PART OF THIS

IDENTITY.

I KNEW I WAS BORN TO BE A

MAN.

IN JUNIOR YEAR, SOPHIA

STARTED TO

HAVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH

OTHER GIRLS.

SHE WENT TO COLLEGE ON A

BASKETBALL

SCHOLARSHIP WHERE SHE FULLY

EMBRACED

LESBIANISM AND HER IDENTITY

AS A MAN.

BY THIS TIME, HER MOTHER

DORIS KNEW.

MY HEART WAS BROKEN.

IT WAS BROKEN TO PIECES.

SOPHIA LIVED AS A LESBIAN

FOR 10

YEARS. HER MOM PRAYED FOR

HER.

I SAID, LOOK, GOD, THIS

IS YOUR

CHILD. YOU LOANED HER TO ME.

SHE BELONGS TO YOU.

YOU WILL DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE

DONE.

I WAS ABOUT TO GIVE UP ON

HER.

HER FRIEND NAMED DEVON

INVITED HER

TO CHURCH.

FINALLY SHE ACCEPTED THE

INVITATION.

WHILE THERE, SOMETHING

HAPPENED.

I COULDN'T BREATHE AND I

WAS

HYPERVENTILATING.

I SAID, HELP. I CAN'T

BREATHE.

AND AT THAT MOMENT, I KNEW,

GOD, YOU

HAVE NOW TAKEN MY BREATH

AWAY. WHICH

IS FOR ME, WHEN GOD TAKES

YOUR BREATH

AWAY, YOU ARE BREATHING A

NEW LIFE.

GOD SAID, NOW I HAVE GOT MY

DAUGHTER.

SOPHIA SAID SHE HEARD GOD

TELLING

HER TO GO TO THE FRONT OF

THE CHURCH.

THE WHOLE TIME I'M

TALKING BACK TO

HIM AND SAYING PLEASE, IF

YOU LET ME

DOWN AND YOU DON'T PROTECT

ME LIKE

YOU ARE, THIS IS IT.

I WILL NEVER DO THIS AGAIN.

THERE WON'T BE A SECOND SHOT.

GOD SAID, TRUST ME WITH YOUR

LIFE.

I HAVE GOT YOU.

I WASN'T GOING TO JUST DO MY

SINERS

PRAYER, I WAS GOING TO PRAY

FOR MY

LIFE.

WHEN SOPHIA WENT UPFRONT,

HER

PASTOR BEGAN TO PRAY WITH

HER.

I SAW A PERSON THAT WAS

ASKING

FATHER GOD, I WANT TO

CHANGE, BUT

WILL YOU HELP ME? IS THIS

REAL?

I CRIED OUT AND LIFTED MY

HANDS

AND SAID I WAS SORRY.

IT WAS A GENUINE SORRY. I

WAS SORRY

THAT I MISUNDERSTOOD WHO HE

WAS.

I WAS SORRY THAT I HAD SUCH

AN ANGER

TOWARDS HIM, AND I WAS

REALLY SORRY

FOR EVERYTHING THAT I HAD

DONE.

AND WHEN I ACCEPTED CHRIST

AS MY

PERSONAL SAVIOR, IT WASN'T

ME ASKING

GOD TO COME INTO MY LIFE

JUST AS A

CLICHE, ME ASKING WAS HIM TO

BE

FATHER, LORD, GOD OF MY LIFE.

AND I ACCEPTED HIM FOR REAL.

SOPHIA SAID OVER THE NEXT

4 YEARS,

GOD BEGAN A TRANSFORMATION

IN HIS

HEART AND MIND TO MAKE HER

INTO THE

WOMAN HE CREATED HER TO BE.

ON MOTHER'S DAY, SOPHIA

SURPRISED HER

MOM AND CAME TO CHURCH

DRESSED LIKE A

LADY.

AND I LOOKED, OH, SHE'S

SO

BEAUTIFUL.

AND SHE OPENED HER ARMS

REALLY

WIDE, AND I GOT UP AND I RAN

TO MY

MOM.

AND THE EMBRACE, THE EMBRACE

THAT SHE

GAVE ME.

I FORGOT ABOUT ALL THE YEARS

THAT I

DIDN'T GET IT.

SHE HELD ME AND SHE SAYS,

SOPHIA, MY

BABY, YOU ARE BACK.

YOU LOOK SO PRETTY.

I LOVE YOU.

I MISS YOU.

MY BABY IS BACK.

THANK YOU GOD FOR ALLOWING

HER TO

LIVE TO SEE OUR PRAYERS, HER

LOVE,

HER BELIEVING IN ME AND

TRUSTING THAT

HE WAS NOT IN VAIN.

I GOT MY IDENTITY BACK. GOD

SUPERNATURALLY ALLOWED ME TO

SEE AS A

PURITY, AS A HOLINESS.

HE DELIVERED THE WHOLE BEING

WAS

DELIVERED.

AS A MINISTER AND AUTHOR

OF FOUR

BOOKS, SOPHIA HELPS TO LEAD

OTHERS

OUT OF THE HOMOSEXUAL

LIFESTYLE AND

FIND FREEDOM IN CHRIST.

JUST BELIEVE.

EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO LIMP

YOUR WAY,

CRAWL YOUR WAY.

GET TO HIM. HE'S THE ONLY

ONE THAT

CAN SET YOU FREE.

Efrem: HE IS INDEED THE

ONLY ONE

THAT CAN SET YOU FREE.

TO THE PARENTS OUT THERE.

TO THE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO

ARE PRAYING

FOR SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY

TO BE

DELIVERED, LET SOPHIA'S

STORY BE A

MESSAGE TO YOU THAT GOD IS A

DELIVERER.

NOW, TO YOU WHO MAYBE

STRUGGLING WITH

ANY DIFFICULTY, ANY PAIN,

ANY

CONCERN, KNOW THIS, GOD IS A

DELIVERER.

TWO KEY POINTS I SAW IN

SOPHIA'S

STORY.

THE FIRST WAS SHE MADE A

DECISION TO

DO WRONG AND TAKE ON THAT

LIFESTYLE,

BUT SHE ALSO MADE THE

DECISION THAT

SHE WAS READY TO DO RIGHT

AND GIVE

GOD A TRY AND TO TRY HIM AND

TO TRUST

HIM.

WHEN SHE MET HIM THERE, SHE

WAS

FAITHFUL AND JUST TO REWARD

HER.

IF YOU MAKE THAT DECISION

TODAY THAT

YOU ARE READY FOR CHANGE,

YOU ARE

READY FOR TRANSFORMATION, I

HAVE GOT

NEWS FOR YOU. GOD IS READY

TO MEET

YOU EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE.

WE HAVE

PEOPLE WAITING FOR YOU BY

THE PHONES

AT TOLL-FREE PHONE NUMBER:

1-800-700-7000.

THEY ARE WAITING FOR YOU AND

YOU WILL

BE BLESSED. TAKE THIS

SCRIPTURE WITH

YOU.

THE WORD IS MY ROCK AND MY

DELIVERER

AND IN HIM I WILL TRUST.

THANK YOU

FOR WATCHING. GOD BLESS YOU.
