ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: HEY, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

WELL, THAT BUNCH OF

CRAZIES IN NORTH KOREA

HAVE DONE IT AGAIN.

THEY HAVE MADE ITS LATEST

AND MOST POWERFUL THREAT

YET, COMING IN THE FORM OF

A HYDROGEN BOMB.

UNDERGROUND TESTS, A BIG

EXPLOSION, MAYBE 60 OR 70

TIMES NOR MORE POWERFUL THAN

THE ONE WE DROPPED IN HERE

HIROSHIMA.

Terry: WHILE NORTH

KOREA IS MOVING AHEAD WITH

ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM, IT IS ALSO

WORKING ON THE MISSILES TO

DELIVER THEM TO OTHER

COUNTRIES, INCLUDING THE

UNITED STATES.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: AS TENSE AS

THE SITUATION WITH NORTH

KOREA HAS ALREADY BECOME,

IT COULD GET WORSE.

SOUTH KOREA BELIEVES THE

NORTH IS PLANNING ANOTHER

MISSILE LAUNCH WITHIN A

FEW DAYS.

THE TEST LAUNCH OF WHAT

SOME SUSPECT WILL BE AN

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

MISSILE CAPABLE OF HITTING

THE UNITED STATES COULD

COME THIS SATURDAY.

THAT'S THE ANNIVERSARY OF

NORTH KOREA'S FOUNDING,

AND LEADER KIM JONG-UN MAY

WANT TO SHOW OFF HIS

ABILITY TO TARGET THE U.S.

WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS 6789.

>WEAPONS.

THE STAKES COULD NOT BE

HIGHER.

THE URGENCY IS NOW.

Reporter: AT A

SPECIAL MEETING OF THE

U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL ON

MONDAY, THE U.S. REPEATED

ITS WARNING TO NORTH NORTH

KOREA.

NUCLEAR POWERS

UNDERSTAND THEIR

RESPONSIBILITIES.

KIM JONG-UN SHOWS NO SUCH

UNDERSTANDING.

HIS ABUSIVE USE OF

MISSILES AND HIS NUCLEAR

THREATS SHOW HE IS BEGGING

FOR WAR.

Reporter: JAPAN,

WHICH HAD A NORTH KOREAN

MISSILE FLY THROUGH ITS

AIR SPACE TOLD THE

SECURITY COUNCIL SOMETHING

MUST BE DONE.

THE SECURITY COUNCIL

MUST ACT TO STOP NORTH

KOREA FROM CONTINUING DOWN

THIS ROAD.

Reporter: SOUTH

KOREAN WARSHIPS CONDUCTED

LIVE-FIRE EXERCISES AT SEA

TO SHOW STRENGTH.

ON MONDAY, SEOUL USED F-15

FIGHTER JETS AND

LAND-BASED BALLISTIC

MISSILES TO SIMULATE AN

ATTACK ON NORTH KOREA'S

NUCLEAR TEST SITE, TO

STRONGLY WARN THE NORTH

OVER THE RECENT

DETONATION.

CHINA HAS BEGUN NUCLEAR

RADIATION EMERGENCY DRILLS

ALONG ITS BORDER WITH

NORTH KOREA.

PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED IN

WASHINGTON IF HE WOULD

ATTACK NORTH KOREA SAID,

"WE'LL SEE."

RUSSIA, CHINA, AND THE

EUROPEAN UNION CLAIM THERE

IS NO MILITARY SOLUTION TO

THE CRISIS, BUT ALL HAVE

CONDEMNED NORTH KOREA.

THE PATH UNDERTAKEN BY

NORTH KOREA IS DANGEROUS,

IRRESPONSIBLE, AND

ILLEGAL.

Reporter: NO U.S.

MILITARY ACTION APPEARS

IMMINENT, AND NIKKI HALEY

IS CALLING FOR THE

STRONGEST POSSIBLE

SANCTIONS AGAINST NORTH

KOREA AT THE U.N.

WHILE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION LOOKS INTO

PENALTIES AGAINST NATIONS

THAT DO BUSINESS WITH THE

NORTH.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, WHAT DO

YOU DO?

HOW DO ARE YOU GOING TO

PUT A PENALTY ON CHINA

THAT HAS TRADE WITH THE

UNITED STATES OF

$400 BILLION OR

$500 BILLION A YEAR, SOME

OF THE MOST IMPORTANT

THINGS THAT WE RECEIVE, WE

GET FROM CHINA, AND WHAT

WE SELL, WE SELL TO CHINA.

SANCTIONS STEAM TO BSANCTIONS SEEM TO BE T HE

MAIN WEAPON AGAINST NORTH

KOREA.

FOR MORE ON THAT, WE'RE

JOINED BY ANTHONY SHAPIRO.

HE WORKED IN THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT FOR 17 YEARS.

HE WAS A U.S. ADVISOR TO

THE TALKS WITH NORTH KOREA

IN 2005.

AND IT IS A PLEASURE TO

WELCOME HIM TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING WITH US.

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY SAY THE

PEOPLE IN SEOUL -- WE'VE

GOT ABOUT A MILLION PEOPLE

AT RISK UNDER THE GUNS OF

NORTH KOREA.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP

THIS PROVOCATION?

WELL, THANKS FOR HAVING

ME.

I THINK YOU SAID IT RIGHT,

THAT SANCTIONS ARE THE

BEST AND A PEACEFUL MEANS

TO LIMIT NORTH KOREA'S

PROGRAMS AND TO TRY TO

ATTEMPT TO ROLL THEM BACK.

SANCTIONS ON NORTH KOREA

ARE NOWHERE NEAR WHAT WE

HAD AGAINST IRAN.

STARTING ABOUT SEVEN YEARS

AGO.

SO WE REALLY NEED TO RAMP

UP SANCTIONS.

WE KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM

IS, BUT WE HAVEN'T REALLY

BEEN ABLE TO TACKLE IT,

WHICH IS CHINA AND RUSSIA.

THEY ARE THE PROBLEMS.

THEY ARE THE ONES WHO'S

FIRMS AND INDIVIDUALS ARE

FACILITATING NORTH KOREA.

Pat: OUR TRADE WITH

CHINA IS ENORMOUS.

WE ARE DEPENDENT ON THEM

FOR SO MANY OF THE GOODS

WE NEED HERE.

HOW DO WE PUT BITING

SANCTIONS ON THE CHINESE

IF THEY DEAL WITH THE

NORTH KOREANS?

SURE.

THAT'S ALWAYS A CONCERN.

AND WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS

MAKE SURE THAT THE

SANCTIONS ARE TARGETED.

FIRST OFF, WE HAVE TO

REMEMBER THAT THESE FIRMS

AND INDIVIDUALS AND BANKS

ARE BREAKING U.S. LAW.

SO THE OPTION OF NOT DOING

SOMETHING IS NOT REALLY AN

OPTION.

BECAUSE WE NEED TO PROTECT

THE U.S. FINANCIAL SYSTEM

AND ENFORCE U.S. LAW.

BUT WHAT THAT DOESN'T

MEAN -- IT DOESN'T MEAN

THAT WE HAVE TO GO TO THE

EXTREME LEVEL OF

PROHIBITING THESE BANKS

FROM THE U.S. FINANCIAL

SYSTEM.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE

HAVE TO START SOME KIND OF

TRADE WAR.

THERE ARE WAYS TO DO THIS.

I BELIEVE THAT THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS DOING

THIS -- THEY'RE STARTING

WHAT I LIKE TO CALL IS AN

ESCALATION LADDER, AND

THEY'RE RIGHT NOW AT THE

END -- AT THE BOTTOM OF

THAT LADDER.

THEY'RE MOVING UP THAT

LADDER SLOWLY.

THEY'VE GONE AFTER ONE

CHINESE BANK.

THEY'VE GONE AFTER A BUNCH

OF CHINESE COMPANIES AND

INDIVIDUALS.

I THINK THE NEXT LEVEL

WILL BE GOING AFTER

ANOTHER CHINESE BANK OR

BANKS.

BUT THERE ARE WAYS TO DO

THIS BEFORE WE GET TO SORT

OF THE END OF THE

ESCALATION, WHICH WOULD BE

MORE EXTREME AND HARM THE

U.S.-CHINA RELATIONSHIP.

Pat: WE HAVE AT THE

N.S.A. THE MOST

SOPHISTICATED

CYBER-WARFARE CAPABILITY

IN THE WORLD.

CAN WE USE THAT AGAINST

NORTH KOREA TO REALLY SHUT

THEM DOWN, FROM A

CYBER-ATTACK?

THERE HAVE BEEN SOME

RUMORS THAT THE UNITED

STATES IS USING OFFENSIVE

CYBER-ACTIVITIES AGAINST

NORTH KOREA'S MISSILES

SYSTEMS.

THAT WAS SOME OF THE

REASONS GIVEN FOR SOME OF

THE FAILURES THAT WE SAW

BEFORE, SOME OF THE

MISSILE FAILURES, BUT NOW

WE'VE SEEN A STRING OF

SUCCESSES, SO MAYBE THERE

IS NOT A ONE FOR ONE

MATCH.

CERTAINLY THAT IS

SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE

LOOKED AT.

I'M MORE FOCUSED, FRANKLY,

ON DEFENDING OURSELVES

AGAINST NORTH KOREA'S

CYBER-ACTIVITIES.

AFTER NORTH KOREA TRIED TO

DEVASTATE SONY PICTURES

AFTER THE MOVIE "THE

INTERVIEW," AND SOME OF

THE THINGS THEY HAVE DONE

AGAINST CHINA, AND TRYING

TO STEAL A MILLION DOLLARS

FROM A BANGLADESH BANK

USING THE U.S. FEDERAL

RESERVE -- NORTH KOREA IS

VERY SOPHISTICATED ON ITS

CYBER SIDE, AND I'M NOT

SURE WE'RE REALLY READY

FOR THAT.

Pat: NORTH KOREANS

HAVE IMPOSED TREMENDOUS

PAIN ON THEIR OWN

POPULATION.

THE THOUGHT IS THEY CAN

SURVIVE ALMOST ANY

SANCTIONS THAT COME

AGAINST THEM.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP

THIS?

LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT ONE

OTHER THING, TOO.

THE IDEA OF AN E.M.P.

BLAST OF A NUCLEAR MISSILE

IN THE ATMOSPHERE, SAY 10,

15 MILES IN THE AIR ABOVE

CHICAGO, COULD LITERALLY

FRY ALL OF THE ELECTRONICS

IN AMERICA.

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THAT?

ARE PEOPLE TAKING THAT

SERIOUSLY?

AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO

DEFEND AGAINST IT?

SO, ON YOUR FIRST

POINT, ON HUMAN RIGHTS,

CERTAINLY NORTH KOREA

STARVES ITS OWN PEOPLE.

THE NUMBERS ARE ANYWHERE

FROM 100,000 OF THEIR OWN

CITIZENS IN ESSENTIALLY

PRISON CAMPS.

SUFFERING LEVELS OF

TORTURE THAT PROBABLY

PEOPLE CANNOT EVEN

IMAGINE.

AND CERTAINLY THE REGIME

DOES NOT USE ITS REF NEW REVENUE

FOR ITS PEOPLE.

THIS SORT OF

BELT-TIGHTENING, THIS MYTH

ON BELT-TIGHTENING AGAINST

SANCTIONS -- NORTH KOREA

USES THEIR REVENUE FOR

THREE PURPOSES: FOR THEIR

WEAPONS PROGRAMS, FOR

THEIR MILITARY, AND TO BUY

LUXURY GOODS TO KEEP THE

ELITE HAPPY.

IF WE START TIGHTENING THE

REVENUE, THEY'LL HAVE TO

CHOICE AMONG THOSE THREE.

SO FOR THEM, THEY'RE GOING

TO HAVE TO MAKE SOME TOUGH

CHOICES.

ON E.M.T., I HAVEN'T SEEN

ANY EVIDENCE THAT IS THEIR

GOAL OR PURPOSE.

IT IS MORE LIKELY IF THEY

WERE GOING TO SEND A

MISSILE TOWARDS THE UNITED

STATES, THAT IT WOULD HAVE

A NUCLEAR WEAPON THAT THEY

WOULD BE INTENDING TO USE

AGAINST THE UNITED STATES,

VERSUS AN E.M.P., WHICH WE

HAVEN'T SEEN ANY EVIDENCE

OF THEM TESTING.

BUT I'M ALWAYS IN THE

BUSINESS OF NOT

UNDERESTIMATING NORTH

KOREA.

I THINK THERE ARE TOO MANY

PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT SORT

OF RELY ON, WELL, WE

HAVEN'T SEEN THAT, OR

LOOKING FOR THOSE TYPE OF

CLUES, SO NORTH KOREA

COULD CERTAINLY BE WORKING

ON THE NEXT LEVEL E.M.T.

OR SOMETHING ALONG THOSE

LINES.

Pat: ONE LAST

QUESTION: DO YOU THINK

THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO

WEAPONIZE A THERMONUCLEAR

DEVICE, TO PUT IT ON THE

NOSE CONE OF A ROCKET, AND

DOES IT HIT THE UNITED

STATES?

HAVE THEY BEEN ABLE TO DO

THAT, DO YOU THINK, OR

NOT?

WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE --

MOST OF THE INTELLIGENCE

ASSESSMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN

UNFORTUNATELY LEAKED

SUGGEST THAT PART OF THAT,

MAKING IT THE RIGHT SIZE

TO FIT ON THE NOSE CONE,

HAS HAPPENED.

I THINK TIME WILL TELL.

WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT THE

NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS TO SEE

WHAT TYPE OF DEVICE IT IS.

THE INTERESTING PART OF

THIS TEST -- I THINK MOST

PEOPLE THINK IT WAS

PROBABLY A MULTI-STAGED

NUCLEAR WEAPON.

THE INTERESTING THING

ABOUT THIS TEST IS USUALLY

THEY TUNNEL INTO A

MOUNTAIN, AND THE BLAST IS

SELF-CONTAINED.

BUT APPARENTLY THERE WAS A

SECOND COLLAPSE.

THERE WAS A COLLAPSE OF

THEIR TUNNEL, PERHAPS,

WHICH COULD INDICATE THAT

THERE WILL BE THE RELEASE

OF SOME GASSES THAT CAN BE

ANALYZED AND GIVE US SOME

CLUES ABOUT WHAT THE

DEVICE WAS AND WHAT WAS

TESTED.

Pat: ANTHONY, THANK

YOU VERY MUCH.

OUR EXPERT.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

THE DAMAGES FROM HURRICANE

HARVEY COULD COST UP TO $

$180 BILLION.

AND THE WORST MAY NOT YET

BE OVER FOR MANY TEXANS IN

WEST HOUSTON.

THE CLEANUP CONTINUES.

MORE WATER WILL HAVE TO BE

RELEASED FROM DAMS IN THE

AREA, AND THAT WILL BRING

EVEN MORE FLOODING TO

THOSE POOR PEOPLE.

OUR REPORTER, ERIC

GONZALES, SHOWS US THE NEW

DAMAGE IT WILL LEAVE

BEHIND.

Reporter: WE'RE IN

WEST HOUSTON, JUST ABOUT A

MILE OR SO AWAY FROM WHERE

THE RELEASES TOOK PLACE,

AND YOU CAN SEE THE DAMAGE

THAT WAS LEFT BEHIND.

THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE

ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET

AROUND IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

IN HOUSTON.

IT IS ABOUT FIVE TO SIX

FEET OF WATER THAT IS

GRADUALLY GOING DOWN, BUT

THE RESULTS INSIDE MANY OF

THESE HOMES IS

CATASTROPHIC.

IT'S COMPLETELY WIPED

OUT.

EVERYTHING IS WITHIN AT

LEAST TWO FEET OF WATER.

ALL OF THE FURNITURE IS

GONE, APPLIANCES,

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: ENGINEERS

TELL CBN NEWS THAT THE

RUSH IS ON RIGHT NOW FOR

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS TO

GET AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

OUT OF THEIR WATER-SOAKED

WEST HOUSTON HOMES BECAUSE

OVER THE NEXT FIVE DAYS,

MORE WATER HAS TO BE

RELEASED FROM TWO NEARBY

RESERVOIRS, WHICH WERE

BUILT IN THE 1940s.

THE DAMS OR SHOWING THEIR

AGE AND COULD GIVE WAY IF

MORE WATER IS NOT RELEASED

RELEASED.

PEOPLE ARE TAKING STOCK OF

THEIR DAMAGES.

WE'VE LOT A LOT.

A LOT.

BUT IT IS JUST WORLDLY

POSSESSIONS.

Reporter: THEY ARE

JUST GRATEFUL TO FELLOW

TEXANS, STRANGERS WHO HAVE

SHOWED UP AT THEIR HOME TO

HELP RIP OUT THE CARPET

AND DRYWALL.

THERE IS SO MUCH BEAUTY

THE LORD IS BRINGING OUT

OF THIS, I JUST WANT TELL

YOU.

IT IS REALLY WHAT IT IS

ALL ABOUT, THE BRIDE OF

CHRIST BEING TOGETHER.

WE'RE TRULY BLESSED TO

HAVE SOME FRIENDS WHO HAD

A HOUSE, WHO ALLOWED US TO

MOVE THERE AND SAID, DON'T

WORRY ABOUT IT FOR NOW.

GET YOUR STUFF AND GET IN

THERE.

IT IS YOUR HOUSE.

Reporter: IN

ROCKPORT, ALONG THE TEXAS

COASTLINE, AND NEARLY A

DOZEN OTHER CITIES

THROUGHOUT THE STATE,

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PROVIDING PEOPLE WITH

IMPORTANT SUPPLIES THEY

NEED, ALONG WITH EMOTIONAL

SUPPORT.

YOU HAVE TO FILL THIS

OUT, FRONT AND BACK.

Reporter: WORKING

SIDE BY SIDE WITH FEMA

CREWS, "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEERS

HELPED CLEAN UP WHAT

HURRICANE HARVEY LEFT

BEHIND.

I FEEL REAL BAD.

SO I CAME OUT HERE TO HELP

OUT AND DO MY PART, YOU

KNOW, INTO HELPING OUT.

SOMETHING.

A LITTLE SOMETHING, BUT

SOMETHING.

Reporter: BUT THROUGH

IT ALL, TEXANS ARE STRONG,

RESILIENT, AND KNOW GOD

WILL BRING A BRIGHTER

TOMORROW.

YOU'RE OUT THERE

HELPING MORE PEOPLE.

OP BLEG"OPERATION BLESSING,"

YOU'RE THE ONLY PEOPLE

I'VE SEEN OUT HERE HELPING

RIGHT NOW.

"OPERATION BLESSING," THE

WORD "BLESSING," YOU ARE A

BLESSING TO US HERE IN

THIS COMMUNITY.

Reporter: THIS IS ONE

OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS HARD

HIT BY THE FLOODWATERS.

YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE

WORLDING POSSESSIONS OF

SOMEONE.

THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING

IN NEIGHBORHOOD AFTER

NEIGHBORHOOD.

THIS WAS CLEARED OUT BY

MEMBERS OF "OPERATION

BLESSING," VOLUNTEERS FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING."

YOU KNOW, YOU GO THROUGH

THIS, AND THIS IS PEOPLE'S

STUFF.

THEY HAVE FURNITURE.

THEY HAVE CLOTHES AND

TOYS.

THAT'S THE BIGGEST THING.

THE PARENTS ARE TRYING TO

GET RID OF THESE TOYS

BECAUSE WHAT WAS IN THAT

FLOODWATER, EVERYTHING

FROM GASOLINE TO OIL AND

EVEN RAW SEWAGE -- WE'RE

JOINED WITH JODY GETTIS.

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE

AREAS WHERE VOLUNTEERS

HAVE HELPED OUT WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING,"

CORRECT?

ABSOLUTELY, ERIC.

WE ARE WORKING ALL OVER

THE STATE OF TEXAS.

WE'VE HAD OVER 2300

VOLUNTEERS WORKING IN

ROCKPORT, WHERE HURRICANE

HARVEY MADE LANDFALL.

WE'RE WORKING IN PORT

ARTHUR, AS WELL AS

BEAUMONT.

AND WE'RE WORKING IN ABOUT

EIGHT CITIES TOTAL

THROUGHOUT TEXAS.

Reporter: HOW CAN

PEOPLE HELP?

YOU STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS,

CORRECT?

ABSOLUTELY.

WE NEED FINANCIAL

RESOURCES AND HUMAN

RESOURCES.

GO TO

operationblessing.org AND

CLICK ON VOLUNTEER.

WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU

COME OUT AND HELP US HELP

THE PEOPLE OF TEXAS.

Reporter: AND YOU'RE

ALSO PROVIDING SPIRITUAL

HEALING AS WELL?

OH, MY GOOD,

ABSOLUTELY.

THESE PEOPLE ARE

DEVASTATED.

THIS IS RUTH'S HOME BEHIND

ME, AN ELDERLY LADY WITH A

DAUGHTER WITH SPECIAL

NEEDS, AND THEY'RE IN

TOTAL SHOCK.

WE'RE JUST HERE TO LOVE ON

THEM.

Reporter: THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR YOUR HARD

WORK, JODY.

AGAIN, FOLKS OUT HERE,

THEY LOST EVERYTHING.

ANYTHING ANYBODY CAN HELP

WITH, GO TO

operationblessing.org.

THAT'S THE WAY TO DO IT.

PAT?

Pat: I WANT TO SAY

ONE WORD TO JODY BEFORE

SHE LEAVES.

JODY, TELL ME ABOUT THE

FAITH LEVEL OF THESE

PEOPLE.

IT'S EXTRAORDINARY.

THEY HAVE LOST EVERYTHING,

DEVASTATION, AND THEY ARE

JUST HELPLESS.

WHAT IS THE SPIRITUAL

LEVEL OF THESE WONDERFUL

PEOPLE?

WELL, PAT, THEY'RE

TRYING TO HOLD ON TO HOPE,

OF COURSE.

BUT AS I WALKED THE

STREETS YESTERDAY IN THIS

NEIGHBORHOOD, IT WAS

TOUGH.

RUTH WAS VERY DISTRAUGHT.

SANDRA, ANOTHER ELDERLY

LADY -- THEY CAN'T HELP

THEMSELVES.

IT IS THE REALITY OF

COMING BACK TO THEIR HOMES

AND SEEING EVERYTHING THEY

HAVE WORKED FOR COMPLETELY

IN RUINS IN THE PILE

BEHIND ME.

THERE ARE PICTURES OF

THEIR CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN.

THE STUFF ON THE SIDE OF

THE ROAD IS STUFF THAT

MONEY CAN'T BUY.

BUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS HERE.

I FEEL LIKE OUR GREATEST

CALLING IS TO RESURRECT

HOPE INTO THE PRECIOUS

LIVES OF THESE PEOPLE.

Pat: I HEARD THAT

BEAUMONT, THE SEWAGE

SYSTEM WENT OUT, AND THERE

IS NOTHING BUT POLLUTED

WATER AND THEY COULDN'T

PLUSH TOILETS.

COULD YOU GO INTO THAT IN

SOME DETAIL?

THAT IS CORRECT, PAT.

YES, SIR.

IT WAS REALLY HARD HERE IN

BEAUMONT.

THE WATER SUPPLY WENT OUT.

AND YOU TURNED THE FACET

ON, AND IT DIDN'T COME

OUT.

THE PEOPLE ARE THE MOST

IMPORTANT, PAT, BUT EVEN

US, AS RELIEF WORKERS, WE

WERE STRUGGLING JUST TO

FLUSH THE TOILET.

WE WERE HAVING TO CARRY IN

HUGE TANKS OF WATER TO

POUR IN THE TOILET TO BE

ABLE TO GO TO THE

RESTROOM.

NO ONE COULD TAKE SHOWERS.

OF COURSE, WE HAVE GREAT

RESOURCES, R.V.s, AND

STUFF LIKE THAT, BUT THESE

PEOPLE HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING THEY HAD.

BEING WITHOUT WATER IN

AMERICA, WE'RE NOT USED TO

THAT AT ALL.

SO IT IS JUST A STRUGGLE

TO SURVIVE.

THE WATER IS COMING ON AND

OFF AT TIMES, BUT IT IS

STILL NOT AT FULL

CAPACITY.

AS WELL AS IN PORT ARTHUR.

WE JUST NEED PRAYERS FOR

THOSE FOLKS, NOT ONLY FOR

VOLUNTEER HELP, BUT TO

KIND OF SURVIVE THE

CIRCUMSTANCES.

Pat: THANK YOU, ERIC,

AND THANK YOU FOR JODY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

THERE, FOLKS, AND YOU CAN

HELP.

THEY NEED HELP.

THEY NEED FINANCES.

1-800-700-7000.

AND YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com AND IT'S DISASTER

RELIEF.

WE'RE THERE, "OPERATION

BLESSING."

WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE,

I MIGHT ADD.

WE STAY IN THESE PLACES

UNTIL WE GET THE JOB DONE.

SO WE ARE PROBABLY THE

LARGEST MOBIL MOBILIZER OF

VOLUNTEERS.

WE HAVE A THOUSAND OR SO

VOLUNTEERS WORKING, AND WE

MOBILIZE THEM INTO

DISTINCT GROUPS SO THEY

CAN GO AND HELP THESE

PEOPLE.

IF THEY DON'T BRING THAT

JUNK OUT TO THE EDGE OF

THE PROPERTY, FEMA WON'T

PICK IT UP.

SO IF IT IS 10 OR 20 FEET

BEHIND, THEY WON'T PICK IT

UP.

SO WE'VE GOT TO HELP THE

ELDER PEOPLE, FOR EXAMPLE,

BRING THIS STUFF OUT SO

THE FEMA PEOPLE WILL PICK

IT UP.

Terry: AND WHO CUTS

OUT THE DRYWALL, WHO PULLS

OUT THE WET INSULATION?

SOMEBODY HAS TO GO IN AND

DO THAT --

Pat: THESE VOLUNTEERS

DO IT, AND GOD GLES BLESS EVERY

ONE OF THEM COMING DOWN TO

HELP.

> ANYHOW, IS A

TRAGEDY -- WE USE THE TERM

BIBLICAL PROPORTION.

BUT WE WERE HERE AND

PRAYING FOR PEOPLE.

YESTERDAY WAS OUR LABOR

DAY PRAYER MEETING.

Terry: HERE AT CBN

LABOR DAY, THAT DAY IS

MORE THAN JUST A HOLIDAY.

BACK IN 1961, BEFORE THE

FIRST BROADCAST HIT THE

AIRWAVES, ALL OF OUR

EMPLOYEES GATHERED ON

LABOR DAY FOR A TIME OF

PRAYER.

AND WE'VE MADE IT A

TRADITION EVER SINCE THEN.

THIS YEAR WE MADE SURE

THAT THE STAFF OF CBN,

REGENT UNIVERSITY AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" WERE

LIFTED UP IN PRAYER, ALL

OF THOSE AFFECTED BY

HURRICANE HARVEY.

TAKE A LOOK.

Pat: YOU CAN'T

CONCEIVE OF THE

DEVASTATION.

THE PEOPLE HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING, LOST

EVERYTHING, ALL OF THEIR

EARTHLY POSSESSIONS GONE.

GREAT SWATHS OF THE AREA

ARE UNDER WATER.

THERE ARE MANY WHO ARE

FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES.

I SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN

KATRINA DURING THAT AWFUL

STORM THAT HIT NEW

ORLEANS.

BUT IT IS NOTHING COMPARED

TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED WITH

HARVEY IN TEXAS.

PRAY FOR THOSE BRAVE

PEOPLE.

CONTINUE TO UPHOLD THEM,

CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THEM.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

WORKING, CBN INTERNATIONAL

IS WORKING -- WE'RE ALL

WORKING DOWN THERE TO HELP

THOSE PEOPLE AS MUCH AS WE

CAN.

SO WE'RE PRAYING.

SO LET'S NOT STOP PRAYING

BECAUSE THE DAMAGE AND THE

HEART ATTACK WILL GO ON

FOR YEARS.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT IS

SHORT-TERM.

SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR

PRAYERS.

GOD BLESS YOU.

[APPLAUSE]

Terry: I WANT TO JUST

ADD THAT IF YOU ARE

SOMEONE WHO HAVE

VOLUNTEER, THEY'RE GOING

TO BE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE

TO HELP FOR A LONG TIME.

1-800-700-7000 IS THE

NUMBER TO CALL.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com.

> WELL, STILL AHEAD, PAT

GOES ON THE HOT SEAT FOR

ANOTHER ROUND OF "YOUR

QUESTIONS; HONEST

ANSWERS."

LANCE SAYS, MY PASTOR

RECENTLY TOLD THE

CONGREGATION THAT MARRIED

COUPLES MUST HAVE

CHILDREN.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS A

PERSONAL CHOICE.

IS THIS A MANDATE FROM

GOD?"

PAT IS GOING TO WEIGH IN

ON THAT AND MORE, WHEN WE

Terry: A FEW DAYS

AGO, WE FEATURED THE STORY

OF A RESEARCHER WHO HAD

CRACKED THE CODE OF

ALZHEIMER'S, AND HIS

TREATMENT OF THE DISEASE

IS NOTHING SHORT OF

REVOLUTIONARY.

THE RESPONSE TO THAT STORY

HAS BEEN OVERWHELMING, SO

WE'RE GOING TO BRING

DR. DALE BREDESEN ON OUR

SHOW LIVE TO SHARE MORE OF

HIS FINDINGS.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW IN

ADVANCE.

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE THAT

INTERVIEW ON TOMORROW'S

"700 CLUB."

SO DON'T MISS THAT.

> RIGHT NOW IT IS TIME

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS AND

SOME HONEST ALEXANDRA.

ANSWERS.

THIS IS LANCE WHO SAYS,

"PAT, THE PASTOR OF THE

CHURCH WE'VE BEEN

ATTENDING FOR A FEW MONTHS

RECENTLY PREACHED THAT

MARRIED COUPLES HAD TO

HAVE CHILDREN IF MEDICALLY

POSSIBLE, AND THAT YOU'RE

LIVING OUTSIDE THE WILL OF

GOD IF YOU DIDN'T CHOOSE

TO.

IN 1 CORINTHIANS 7, PAUL

SAYS HE WISHES THAT ALL

MEN WOULD REMAIN SINGLE AS

HIMSELF, BUT IT IS BETTER

TO MARRY THAN TO BURN.

WE ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT

THE DECISION TO MARRY OR

NOT OR HAVE CHILDREN OR

NOT IS UP TO THE

INDIVIDUAL AND NOT

MANDATED BY THE CHURCH.

WE'RE INTERESTED IN YOUR

THOUGHTS."

Pat: THE EARLY

MANDATE BETWEEN GOD AND

MAN WAS BE FRUITFUL AND

MULTIPLY AND POSSESS THE

EARTH AND HAVE DOMINION

OVER THE EARTH.

SO PART OF IT IS TO

MULTIPLY.

BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY.

THAT IS KIND OF LIKE A

HEAVENLY MANDATE OVER

MANKIND.

BUT WE HAVE MULTIPLIED

COMPLETELY THER.

THERE ARE ALMOST TOO MANY.

THIS ISN'T SOME

DICTATORSHIP OR DEMOCRACY.

WE HAVE FREEDOM.

AND YOU'RE EXACTLY RIGHT,

THE FREEDOM TO HAVE

CHILDREN OR TO NOT HAVE

CHILDREN.

TO SAY YOU MUST DO IT OR

YOUR SINNING AGAINST GOD

IS RIDICULOUS.

Terry: THIS IS SERENA

WHO SAYS, "IS IT BAD TO

ASK BELIEVERS OR

NON-BELIEVERS ADVICE ON

SOMETHING, OR SHOULD YOU

ONLY GO TO GOD.

I'VE BEEN GOING TO GOD

ABOUT SOMETHING I'M GOING

THROUGH.

I'VE TALKED TO A PASTOR

AND MY GRANDMA, WHO IS A

VERY GODLY PERSON.

I FEEL LIKE I'M BEING

IMPATIENT AND PUTTING

OTHER PEOPLE'S OPINIONS

OVER GOD IF I ASK

SOMEONE'S ADVICE AFTER I

HAVE ALREADY ASKED GOD.

SHOULD I ASK OTHER PEOPLE

AS WELL ABOUT IT?"

Pat: IF YOU HAVE A

LINE WITH THE LORD AND HE

SPEAKS TO YOU CLEARLY,

THAT'S IT.

YOU DON'T NEED TO HAVE

SOMEBODY ELSE TALK TO YOU.

BUT THE BIBLE SAYS, YOU

KNOW, WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR

WAR SEEK COUNSEL.

IN THE MULTITUDE OF

COUNSELLORS, THERE IS

SAFETY.

SO THE IDEA OF HAVING

GODLY COUNSEL IS CERTAINLY

BIBLICAL.

AND, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE

GETTING TO MAKE A MAJOR

DECISION, IT DOESN'T HURT.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, IF

YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART

WHAT GOD WANTS, THEN YOU

BETTER JUST DO WHAT GOD

TELLS YOU, AND NOT EXPOSE

THAT TO THE UNBELIEF OF

OTHERS.

BUT THAT'S A ROCKY DEAL.

BUT THE OVERALL THING IS

GODLY COUNSELLORS.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

WISDOM IN CERTAIN AREAS,

AND IT DOESN'T HURT TO ASK

SOMEBODY.

WHAT STOCKS WOULD YOU

RECOMMEND?

DO YOU THINK I OUGHT TO

INVEST IN SO AND SO?

AND SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS

BETTER SAYS, THAT' YOU BETTER

STAY AWAY FROM IT.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "I KNOW THAT JESUS

TOOK ALL OF MY GUILT AND

SHAME, AND I UNDERSTAND

THAT MY SIN WAS THE AREN'T

HE DIED FOR ME.

WHAT I WANT TO KNOW, IS

WHY DO SEXUAL SINS MAKE

YOU FEEL MORE GUILTY THAN

OTHER SINS.

WILL GOD PENALIZE ME FOR

THE SEXUAL SINS I

COMMITTED?

I HOPED TO BE TOTALLY FREE

OF THIS."

Pat: LOOK, YOU'RE A

HUMAN BEING.

IF YOU'RE A MAN OR A

WOMAN -- YOU'RE SEXUAL

BEINGS.

GOD CREATED US FOR

REPRODUCTION.

AND HE GAVE US CERTAIN

DESIRES AND PASSIONS.

AND THOSE DESIRES AND

PASSIONS, UNFORTUNATELY,

WHEN THEY'RE OUT OF

CONTROL, CAN LEAD TO REAL

SERIOUS PROBLEMS: BROKEN

FAMILIES, CHILDREN OUT OF

WEDLOCK, ALL KINDS OF

PROBLEMS.

SO BECAUSE SEX IS SO

POWERFUL, THE RESULTS OF

MISUSE OF SEX CAN, YOU

KNOW, HURT MORE THAN IF

YOU EAT TOO MUCH CHOCOLATE

CAKE AT LUNCH, YOU KNOW?

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: JUST A LITTLE

MORE.

Pat: A LITTLE MORE.

Terry: THIS IS

CYNTHIA WHO SAYS, "MY MOM

HAS BEEN A CHRISTIAN MANY

YEARS, BUT SHE REFUSES TO

FORGIVE PEOPLE, AND AS A

RESULT HAS BECOME CYNICAL

TOWARDS EVERYONE, EVEN

FAMILY.

DOES GOD ALLOW PEOPLE INTO

HEAVEN WHO BELIEVE IN

JESUS BUT WHO DO NOT

FORGIVE THEIR BROTHERS?"

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU

WHAT, IT IS VERY CLEAR --

YOU KNOW THAT PRAYER, THE

LORD'S PRAYER, AND FORGIVE

US OUR TRESPASSES AS WE

FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS

AGAINST US.

IT IS IN THE PRAYER.

JESUS SAYS WHEN YOU STAND

PRAYING, IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY -- I'M NOT

GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE

ETERNAL DESTINY OF

SOMEBODY.

BUT I WILL TALK ABOUT

THIS: I PROMISE YOU, IF

YOU DO NOT HAVE A

FORGIVING SPIRIT, YOU WILL

NOT EVEN TASTE OF A

MIRACLE.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE MIRACLES

IN HEALING.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE MIRACLES

IN FINANCIAL PROVISIONS.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE MIRACLES

OF INTERPERSONAL BLESSING.

YOU WILL CUT YOURSELF OFF

FROM ALL OF THE BLESSINGS

THAT GOD HAS FOR YOU IF

YOU LACK FORGIVENESS IN

YOUR HEART.

NOW, DOES THAT TAKE AWAY

YOUR SALVATION?

I'M NOT PREPARED TO SAY

BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE CLEAR

SCRIPTURAL MANDATE, BUT IT

CERTAINLY IS VERY, VERY

CLEAR IN THE BIBLE,

"FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES

AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO

TRESPASS AGAINST US."

I'VE GOTTEN TO THE POINT

IN MY OWN LIFE, I'M

INCAPABLE OF HOLDING A

GRUDGE AGAINST ANYBODY.

I CAN'T DO IT.

THE LORD JUST WANTS ME TO

FORGIVE PEOPLE.

AND I WANT TO BE BLEF.

BLESSED.

I WANT TO WALK IN HIS

BLESSING.

SO IS IT WORTH HOLDING A

GRUDGE TO CUT OFF THE

BLESSING OF GOD?

OF COURSE NOT.

BUT THAT'S THE RULE.

SO YOU CAN TAKE IT FOR

WHAT IT'S WORTH.

Terry: WISE COUNSEL.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

TODAY, BUT WE THANK YOU

FOR SUBMITTING THEM.

> WELL, COMING UP, A

BACK-TO-SCHOOL LESSON FROM

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR KEVIN

LEMAN.

LEARN HOW PARENTS AND

STUDENTS CAN GET THE MOST

OUT OF THE SCHOOL YEAR

WHEN WE RETURN.

Terry: IF YOU HEARD A

COLLECTIVE SIGH OF RELIEF

OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS, IT

IS PROBABLY FROM PARENTS

WHO FINALLY SHIPPED THEIR

KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL.

BUT AS KEVIN LEMAN SAYS,

THE IMPORTANT THING FOR

PARENTS ISN'T THAT THEY

GET THEIR CHILDREN ON THE

RIGHT BUSES, BUT MAKING

SURE THOSE KIDS ARE

GETTING IN THE RIGHT SEAT.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter:

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

DR. KEVIN LEMAN SAYS

FINDING THE RIGHT SCHOOL

FOR YOUR CHILD, WHETHER

PUBLIC, PRIVATE, OR

HOME-SCHOOLED, IS ONE OF

THE MOST IMPORTANT

DECISIONS PARENTS MAKE.

DR. LEHMAN BELIEVES

EVERYBODY DESERVES A

QUALITY EDUCATION, BUT IT

IS VITAL TO MAKE SURE YOUR

KIDS ARE IN THE RIGHT

SCHOOL.

IN HIS BOOK, HE PROVIDES

MUCH-NEEDED TOOLS TO

CHOOSE THE BEST SCHOOLING

OPTION FOR THE CHILD, TO

HELP STUDENTS PREPARE FOR

LIFE BOTH INSIDE AND

OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM.

Terry: OUR GOOD

FRIEND, DR. KEVIN LEMAN IS

HERE WITH US NOW.

THANK YOU.

Terry: I WANT TO

MENTION AT THE TOP, ALL OF

THE THINGS WE ARE TALKING

ABOUT TODAY ARE INCLUDED

IN YOUR NEW, "THEDUCATION

ALA CART."

I DON'T THINK PARENTS

ARE AWARE OF ALL OF THE

CHOICES.

THERE ARE MAGNET SCHOOLS

AND CHARTER SCHOOLS,

PRIVATE SCHOOLS, PAROCHIAL

SCHOOLS -- YOU NAME IT,

AND THEY'RE OUT THERE.

Terry: I THINK ONE OF

THE THINGS THAT IS

DIFFICULT FOR A PARENT IS

TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S YOUR

CHILD'S LEARNING STYLE?

MOST OF US WENT TO SCHOOL,

AND WHEREVER YOU LANDED,

YOU LANDED.

IT IS TRUE FOR YOU.

I WAS SO SURPRISED TO READ

WITH ALL OF YOUR

ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND YOUR

BOOKS AND STUDIES, THAT

YOU WERE SMART, BUT YOU

HAD TERRIBLE GRADES IN

GRADE SCHOOL.

WHAT HAPPENED?

I NEVER FIGURED OUT I

WAS SMART UNTIL LATER ON.

I SPENT A LOT OF MY

ELEMENTARY EDUCATION

STANDING IN THE CORNER

LOOKING AT PAINT CHIPS.

THAT IS WHAT THEY DID WITH

ME.

I GRADUATED FOURTH AND

BOTTOM OF MY CLASS IN HIGH

SCHOOL.

Terry: WHAT MOTIVATED

YOU?

YOU DIDN'T GO ON TO

COLLEGE RIGHT AWAY.

YOU WORKED FOR A WHILE.

AND WHAT WAS IT THAT MADE

YOU SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT, I

NEED TO TURN THIS AROUND?

I BECAME A BELIEVER.

I MET MY WIFE IN THE MEN'S

ROOM OF A HOSPITAL WHEN I

WAS A JANITOR.

SHE WAS THE INSPIRATION

THAT GOD USED IN MY LIFE

TO HELP PULL THE TRIGGER.

AND AFTER I BECAME A

BELIEVER, GOD GAVE ME

MOTIVATION AND I WENT IN

AND NEVER LOOKED BACK.

I HAVE 13 YEARS OF

COLLEGE.

I REMEMBER BEING IN A

READING GROUP WITH A GIRL

WHO ATE PASTE.

I WAS GOING NOWHERE.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT NOW, WITH THE BOOK

"EDUCATION ALA CART," I

CHALLENGE PARENTS TO TAKE

A LOOK AT THE LEARNING

STYLE OF YOUR KID.

Terry: HOW DO YOU

KNOW WHAT IT IS?

NOBODY IS BETTER

EQUIPPED TO KNOW ABOUT

YOUR KID THAN YOU ARE.

YOU'RE THE BEST TEACHER

THAN YOUR CHILD WOULD EVER

HAVE.

IS YOUR KID INTERESTED IN

PEOPLE, DATA, OR THINGS?

YOU CAN SEE THE FUTURE

ENGINEER WHO IS WORKING

WITH HIS LEGOS, BUT,

AGAIN, YOU'VE GOT A KID IN

MUSIC, WHO LOVES MUSIC AND

DRAMA, WOULD YOU SEND HIM

TO THE PUBLIC SCHOOL DOWN

THE STREET WHO JUST

SLASHED THEIR ENTIRE

BUDGET AND DON'T HAVE MUCH

TO OFFER?

I CHALLENGE PARENTS, IF

THERE EVER WAS A BOOK THAT

WAS A GUIDE, A HANDY

GUIDE -- AS MY PUBLISHER

SAYS, THIS BOOK HAS LEGS,

BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY

OPPORTUNITIES OUT THERE

FOR KIDS.

MY FRIEND, BILL BENNETT --

WHO ENDORSED MY BOOK --

Terry: YOU CAN'T GET

BETTER THAN THAT.

HE WAS SO GREAT TO DO

THAT.

HE SAYS, EVERY ELEMENTARY

SCHOOL NEEDS TO ENSURE

THAT KIDS LEARN TO READ.

THAT'S LATE-BREAKING NEWS

IN A LOT OF PLACES BECAUSE

THEY'RE NOT LEARNING TO

READ.

WE DON'T SET THE HIGH-JUMP

BAR HIGH ENOUGH FOR KIDS.

AT LEMAN ACADEMY --

Terry: TALK ABOUT

THAT.

YOU HAVE SOME CHARTER

SCHOOLS THAT ARE DOING

SOME PRETTY AMAZING WORK.

THEY REALLY ARE.

WE HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS

FOR KIDS.

WE INSIST THAT PARENTS

BECOME INVOLVED IN THE

EDUCATION.

AND MAKING CHILDREN MINE

WITHOUT LOSING YOURS, AND

HAVING A KID BY FRIDAY,

TWO OF MY PARENTING

BOOKS -- AND IT WAS FUN

FOR ME TO TAKE THOSE

PRINCIPLES I WROTE

ABOUT -- YOUR CHILD IS NOT

THE CENTER OF THE

UNIVERSE.

AND VITAMIN "E," HOW DO

YOU ENCOURAGE KIDS TODAY?

WE PUT AUTHORITY IN THE

CLASSROOM TEACHER'S HAND.

Terry: WHICH WE HAVE

SEEN BEING ERODED FROM THE

PUBLIC SYSTEM FOR DECADES

IL.

>. FROM THE GET-GO.

THERE ARE MAGNET SCHOOLS

THAT SPECIALIZE IN CERTAIN

TYPES OF TRAINING, AND

THERE ARE HIGH SCHOOLS

WHERE KIDS LEARN AUTO

MECHANICS.

YOU CAN BE A GOOD COACH TO

YOUR CHILD BECAUSE EVERY

PARENT WORRIES ABOUT PEER

GROUP AND ABOUT SOCIAL

PRESSURE AND COMPETING IN

A GLOBAL ECONOMY.

THE DAYS OF CRAYONS AND

COLORING IN KINDERGARTEN

ARE OVER.

THOSE KIDS ARE READING.

IT IS ACCELERATED.

Terry: AND I THINK

PARENTS ARE SOMETIMES

OVERWHELMED BY ALL OF

THAT, KEVIN.

AND NOW YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT POTENTIALLY, IF

THEY'RE NOT IN A CHARTER

SCHOOL, PLACING KIDS IN

DIFFERENT SCHOOLS.

ONE FAMILY MAY HAVE KIDS

IN DIFFERENT SCHOOLS, AND

HOW DO YOU JUGGLE THAT?

PARENTS HEAR THAT AND I

THINK THEY WANT TO GET A

GUN OUT AND LET ME HAVE

IT.

BUT THE TRUTH IS YOUR KIDS

ARE VERY DIFFERENT.

INMENIN MANY FAMILIES, THEY'RE

VERY, VERY DIFFERENT.

IT GETS BACK TO LOOKING AT

KIDS' POTENTIAL AND TRYING

TO GUIDE THEM THROUGH IT.

AS FAR AS HOMEWORK GOES,

DON'T DO THE HOMEWORK FOR

YOUR KIDS.

WOULD YOU TURN YOUR MUSIC

DOWN, I'M TRYING TO DO THE

HOMEWORK.

"B" DOESN'T START UNTIL

"A" IS COMPLETED.

Terry: HOW DO YOU GET

A CHILD TO WANT TO DO

THEIR HOMEWORK, AFTER

THEY'VE BEEN IN SCHOOL ALL

DAY.

THEY COME HOME -- WE'RE

RAISING OUR GRANDDAUGHTER,

AND WHEN SHE COMES HOME --

SHE IS ONLY IN K-5, BUT

SHE WANTS TO PLAY.

I THINK IT IS GOOD FOR

KIDS TO COME HOME AND PLAY

AND HAVE A SET TIME.

YOU CAN LEAD THAT HORSE TO

WATER, BUT YOU CAN'T MAKE

THEM DRINK IT.

BUT I GO BACK TO A SIMPLE

PRINCIPLE, "B" DOESN'T

HAPPEN UNTIL "A."

KIDS ALREADY WANT

EVERYTHING.

THEY'RE ON THE TAKE.

WE KNOW THAT FROM THE DAY

THEY'RE BORN.

THEY'RE ALWAYS ASKING FOR

SOMETHING.

A SIMPLE RETORT LIKE,

HONEY, I SEE YOUR HOMEWORK

IS NOT DONE.

WHEN THAT IS DONE, WE'LL

TALK ABOUT "B," THE NEXT

THING.

I WANT TO EMPHASIZE THE

AUTHORITY.

GOD IS NOT A

AUTHORITARIAN, BUT HE IS A

SUPREME WHAT?

AUTHORITY.

WE NEED AUTHORITY IN THE

HOME.

LET YOUR YES BE YES AND

YOUR NO BE NO.

IF THE KID GETS IN TROUBLE

IN OUR SCHOOL, I TELL THE

PARENTS, EXPECT TO GET A

CALL FROM US.

THAT IS KEEPING THE TENNIS

BALL IN THE COURT IT

SHOULD BE IN.

HOLD THOSE LITTLE SUCKERS

ACCOUNTABLE.

IT IS GREAT TRAINING IN

LIFE.

Terry: THE BOOK IS

"EDUCATION ALA CART," AND

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS OR SOLD.

IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT

ABOUT ALL OF THE SCHOOL

OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO YOU,

IT IS IN HERE.

THANK YOU.

IT IS WISE COUNSEL.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

FAMILY FALLS ON HARD TIMES

AFTER A DAD GETS LAID OFF

AFTER 17 YEARS.

AFTER I LOST MY JOB, IT

WAS REALLY CHALLENGING.

WE HAD NO MONEY COMING

IN, AND WE HAD TO START

LIVING ON THE CREDIT

CARDS.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

FAMILY OF SIX GETS BACK ON

THEIR FEET, AFTER THIS.

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

HURRICANE IRMA COULD BE ON

A COLLISION COURSE WITH

THE U.S.

IT GREW INTO A POWERFUL

CATEGORY 5 STORM TODAY.

THE STORM IS HEADING

STRAIGHT TO THE CARIBBEAN

AND COULD HIT SOUTH

FLORIDA BY SATURDAY.

PEOPLE THERE ARE ALREADY

GETTING A HEAD START BY

STOCKING UP ON WATER,

BATTERIES, LANTERNS, AND

MORE.

HARVEY, EVERYONE WAS

KIND OF TAKEN BACK.

YOU SEE HOW BAD THAT WAS.

OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE FROM

FLORIDA, SO WE'RE USED TO

THIS TYPE OF SITUATION,

BUT IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO

BE PREPARED.

A STEPHE STATE OF EMERGENCY

HAS BEEN DECLARED IN POWRT

PUERTO RICO, THE VIRGIN

ISLANDS.

> THE PRESIDENT TWEETED,

CONGRESS, GET READY TO DO

YOUR JOB, DACA."

DACA LET'S ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS WHO CAME TO THE

U.S. AS CHILDREN STAY HERE

AND GO TO SCHOOL HERE.

CONGRESS WILL NOW TRY TO

COME UP WITH A REPLACEMENT

PLAN FOR DACA.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS FROM

cbnnews.com.

TERRY WILL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: JASON KEAN

LOVES COMING HOME TO HIS

WIFE AND FAMILY, BUT HE

ALSO LOVES GOING TO WORK.

JASON IS THANKFUL THAT HE

HAS A JOB BECAUSE NOT LONG

AGO HE WAS UNEMPLOYED AND

BURNING THROUGH HIS LIFE

SAVINGS.

Reporter: THE KEAN

HOUSEHOLD IS ALL FULL OF

ENERGY, ESPECIALLY WHEN

DAD GETS HOME.

PIERNTION IT I IT IS VERY JOYOUS EVENT

WHEN I COME HOME.

IT IS A BLESSING TO COME

THROUGH THE DOOR AND BE

GREETED BY A HAPPY FAMILY.

Reporter: BUT TIMES

WEREN'T ALWAYS HAPPY FOR

THIS FAMILY OF SIX.

AFTER I LOST MY JOB, IT

WAS REALLY CHALLENGING.

WE WERE FACING A LONG TIME

WITHOUT ANY REAL RELIABLE

SOURCE OF U INCOME.

IT WAS HARD AFTER HE

HAD BEEN UNEMPLOYED FOR

THREE MONTHS, AND WE HAD

TO START LIVING ON THE

CREDIT CARDS.

Reporter: WHILE JASON

SENT OUT RESUME AFTER

RESUME, HE AND HIS WIFE,

ASHLEY, USED ALL OF THEIR

RESOURCES KEEPING THEIR

FAMILY AFLOAT.

THEY QUICKLY WENT THROUGH

THEIR LIFE SAVINGS.

IF I DIDN'T GET A JOB

SOON, WE WERE GOING TO

HAVE TO MAKE SOME HARD

DECISIONS.

WE HAD A FINITE AMOUNT

IN THE BANK ACCOUNT.

THEY WILL TURN OFF YOUR

ELECTRICITY AND THEY WILL

TURN OFF YOUR WATER IF YOU

DON'T PAY THEM FOR LONG

ENOUGH, THEY WILL COME AND

TAKE YOUR HOUSE FROM YOU.

Reporter: KNOWING

THAT THE KEANS WERE

DESPERATE, A FRIEND TOLD

THEM ABOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" "ONE HEART

MINISTRIES."

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD

JUST BE FOOD, BUT THEY HAD

TOILET PAPER AND DIAPERS.

Reporter: JASON'S JOB

EFFORT PAID OFF.

I WENT FROM UNEMPLOYED

TO GENERAL MANAGER IN

ABOUT SIX MONTHS.

IT IS VERY EXCITING TO

HAVE AN INCOME AGAIN.

IT IS MEETING OUR NEEDS

RIGHT NOW.

AND WITH "ONE HEART

MINISTRIES," AND

"OPERATION BLESSING," WE

ARE MEETING OUR BILLS.

IF I COULD TALK TO THE

PEOPLE WHO DONATE AND

SUPPORT "OPERATION

BLESSING" AND "ONE HEART

MINISTRIES," I WOULD SAY

THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU ARE

DOING FOR US.

Terry: IF YOU'RE A

"700 CLUB" MEMBER, IT IS

YOU THEY ARE THANKING

BECAUSE YOU MAKE IT

POSSIBLE FOR US TO BE

THERE FOR FAMILIES LIKE

THE KEANS.

THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE

WHO ARE NOT IN THE

POSITION TO ABLE TO MAIN

MAINTAIN IF THEY LOSE

THEIR JOBS.

HELP US HELP PEOPLE.

JUST DAY TO DAY LIFE AS IT

HITS MANY, MANY PEOPLE

ACROSS OUR COUNTRY.

THAT'S JUST A PART OF WHAT

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS DO.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

AND YOU'LL BE JOINING WITH

THOUSANDS OF US WHO ARE

OUT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THE LIVES OF PEOPLE

HERE AT HOME AND AROUND

THE WORLD.

SO WILL YOU CALL NOW AND

JOIN WITH US?

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL WHEN

YOU CALL AND SAY, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB," IF

YOU WOULD SAY, I'D LIKE TO

DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK.

IT IS PRETTY WONDERFUL.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

STAMPS OR ENVELOPES ON

HAND.

IT IS ALL DONE FOR YOU.

YOU CAN STOP IT WHENEVER

YOU WANT.

IT IS ALLOWS US TO SAVE

SOME ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS

THAT WILL PUT MORE OF YOUR

GIFT INTO THE LIVES OF

FAMILIES LIKE THE KEANS.

WHEN YOU CALL, SAY, I

WOULD LIKE TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB" AND I WOULD LIKE

TO DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK

YOU IS TO SEND YOU THESE

"POWER FOR LIFE"

TEACHINGS.

> COMING UP, THEY GIVE

US A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE

YANKEES' CLUBHOUSE.

I'M STILL LEARNING.

IEMG GOI THINK GOD HAS USED ME IN

THE MANY WAYS.

Terry: MATT HALLADAY

TAKES US INSIDE HIS CHURCH

AFTER THIS.

*

Terry: YANKEE STADIUM

HAS BEEN CALLED BASEBALL'S

CATHEDRAL.

FOR MATT HALLADAY, IT IS

ALWAYS HIS CHURCH.

HE SERVES AS THE SPIRITUAL

LEADER AS WELL.

TOM BURYING HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: MATT HAL

HALLADAY, HE HAS MADE A

CAREER OF PUSHING HIS

TEAMS TOWARDS SUCCESS.

14 YEARS, HAS THAT

FLOWN?

YEAH.

I THINK SOME DAYS IT FEELS

LIKE IT HAS FLOWN, BUT

SOME DAYS IT FEELS LIKE IT

HAS BEEN A LONG TIME.

I TRY TO KEEP IT DAY TO

DAY.

YOU START THINKING ABOUT

HOW LONG IT HAS BEEN, AND

SOME OF THE FIRST TEAMS I

WAS ON, AND HARDLY ANY OF

THEM ARE STILL PLAYING.

Reporter: THE

PROGRESSION CONTINUES WITH

HIS FOURTH TEAM.

PLAYING AT YANKEE STADIUM

AND WEARING A YANKEE

UNIFORM, DOES IT MAKE

BASEBALL LOOK DIFFERENT

FOR YOU?

NO, NOT REALLY.

PLAYING WITH THE

CARDINALS, THAT IS SORT OF

THE YANKEES' NATIONAL

LEAGUE.

I PLAYED AGAINST THE

YANKEES.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS A HUGE

YANKEES' FAN.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO

TRYING TO PLAY TO THE BEST

OF MY ABILITY, I'M PRETTY

USED TO THAT.

IS THERE SOME COOL VIBE?

Reporter: WITH THE

CLUBHOUSE FULL, YOU'RE

RUNNING WITH THIS

MOMENTUM?

I REALLY HAVE ENJOYED

THE SEASON.

COMING TO A NEW PLACE WAS

A LITTLE CHALLENGE FOR ME

PERSONALLY, BUT I'VE

REALLY ENJOYED IT.

THE GUYS HAVE EMBRACED ME.

I'VE BEEN ABLE TO HAVE A

COOL PLACE ON THE TEAM

SPIRITUALLY, WITH OUR

BIBLE STUDIES AND OUR

CHAPELS.

Reporter: FOR A LOT

OF THESE YOUNGER PLAYERS,

WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON

THING YOU HEAR THAT IS

SOMETHING THEY NEED?

I THINK THE STRUGGLE OF

NOT DOING WELL, OR THE DAY

TO DAY FAILURE THAT COMES

WITH BASEBALL IS HARD.

GUYS LOOK FOR AVENUES,

DIFFERENT PLACES TO GET A

RELIEF FROM THAT.

IT IS A HARD GAME,

ESPECIALLY IN THE BRIGHT

LIGHTS OF NEW YORK.

NOT HAVING JESUS AS THE

CENTER OF THAT, IT CAN BE

ROUGH, AND TRYING TO FIND

AND TURN TO DIFFERENT

THINGS.

Reporter: HOW DO YOU

MANAGE THE PRESSURE?

DO I DEAL WELL WITH 0

FOR 4s, NOT REALLY.

BUT I GO OUT HERE AND

TRUST IN THE FACT THAT I'M

WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE,

DOING WHAT I'M SUPPOSED TO

BE DOING, AND BEING ABLE

TO SEPARATE THIS AND GO

HOME AND BE A GOOD HUSBAND

AND TRY TO BE A GOOD

FATHER, AND HELP THEM TRY

TO UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD'S

LOVE LOOKS LIKE.

I THINK GOD HAS USED ME IN

THE RIGHT WAY WITH HOW TO

DEAL WITH THAT.

Reporter: WHAT MAKES

BEING A LEADER IN A

CLUBHOUSE THAN BUILDING UP

TRUST AND RELATIONSHIPS?

IT STARTS IN TRUSTING

YOURSELF.

YOU EARN THAT TITLE WITH

HOW YOU TREAT PEOPLE.

OBVIOUSLY EXPERIENCE

HELPS.

Reporter: DO YOU

RELISH THE MENTORING?

I DO.

I LOVE IT.

THERE ARE SOME GUYS HERE

THAT ARE NEW SPIRITUALLY,

AND ARE STILL LEARNING, AS

AM I, BUT BEING ABLE TO

CONTRIBUTE THE THINGS I'VE

LEARNED, ABOUT

INTERPRETING SCRIPTURE AND

BEING ABLE TO TALK TO THEM

ABOUT WHAT GOD IS SAYING.

IT IS GETTING IN THE WORD

EVERY DAY, AND STARTING MY

DAY WITH SCRIPTURE, AND

HAVING THAT THE CENTER OF

MY LIFE.

I THINK IN TIMOTHY, WHEN

HE TALKS ABOUT

LEADERSHIP -- CHURCH

LEADERSHIP IS EVERYWHERE.

THIS IS SORT OF MY CHURCH,

AND IT'S EVERYBODY'S

CHURCH.

LEADING PEOPLE AND LOVING

PEOPLE -- I'M AN OLDER

PLAYER, AND LEADERSHIP IS

PART OF THE VALUE THAT I

BRING.

Reporter: I DIDN'T

CALL YOU OLD.

NO, NO.

I DON'T FEEL OLD.

THE AGE -- IN BASEBALL

YEARS, MAYBE I'M OLD, BUT

I FEEL PRETTY GOOD.

THAT'S THE PRAYER, TO MAKE

SURE I'M OPEN TO BE USED,

IF HE WANTS TO USE ME, TO

MAKE SURE THAT I'M

AVAILABLE.

Terry: A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR FROM

THE HEART OF A MAN WHO IS

MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US

ON "THE 700 CLUB."

WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH

A SONG FROM THE GROUP
