An American aid worker is ambushed by a radicalized Muslim. Watch what happens when the gun goes off. Plus, CBN News goes inside the Antifa movement. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING

UP...INSIDE THE GROUP THAT

SEEKS PEACE THROUGH

VIOLENCE.

CBN NEWS REVEALS WHAT IS

REALLY BEHIND THE ANTIFA

MOVEMENT.

> AND THEN...AN AMERICAN

AIDE WORKER AFTER 9/11...

IT WAS A VERY INTENSE

TIME.

HE SCREAMED, DADDY,

THAT MAN HAS A GUN.

HE HAS A GUN.

Wendy: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN THE GUN GOES

OFF.

I SAID, LORD, THIS IS

NOT THE WAY IT'S SUPPOSED

TO BE.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THEY SAY IT HAS MORE POWER

THAN TWICE ALL OF THE

ARMAMENTS THAT WERE

EXPLODED DURING WORLD WAR

II.

THAT'S HOW MUCH POWER

HURRICANE IRMA HAS AS IT

BEGINS ITS PATH OF

DESTRUCTION, STARTING IN

THE CARRIBEAN WHERE IT HAS

ALREADY DEFENSE TH DEVASTATED SOME

ISLANDS THERE.

WHEN IT GETS TO THE UNITED

STATES, NOBODY IS SURE

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

I WAS DOWN IN FLORIDA

RIGHT AFTER ANDREW, AND,

FOLKS, YOU CANNOT CONCEIVE

OF THE DEVASTATION.

YOU CANNOT CONCEIVE OF

HOUSE AFTER HOUSE AFTER

HOUSE CONDEMNED, IT HAD TO

BE TORN DOWN.

THE ROOF OF ONE MAJOR

CHURCH WAS DESTROYED.

THE THING COLLAPSED ON

THEM.

AND IT WENT ON AND ON AND

ON.

AND THEY SAY THIS IS MUCH

WORSE THAN ANDREW.

IT COULD, IN FACT, BECOME

THE MOST EXPENSIVE STORM

IN THE HISTORY OF THE

UNITED STATES.

Terry: WELL, IRMA IS

ON A PATH TO MAKE LANDFALL

IN FLORIDA, ALONG WITH

GEORGIA AND POSSIBLY THE

CAROLINAS.

PEOPLE IN THE PATH OF THIS

MONSTER STORM ARE

PREPARING FOR THE WORST.

GARY LANE REPORTS.

Reporter: HURRICANE

IRMA BARRELED THROUGH THE

SOUTHERN CARIBBEAN ON ITS

WAY TOWARDS THE U.S.

PACKING 180 MILE-AN-HOUR

SUSTAINED WINDS, BRINGING

DEATH AND DESTRUCTION TO

BARBUDA, AND SUBMERGED

STREETS TO THE ISLAND OF

ST. MARTIN.

PASTOR JONATHAN FALLWELL

GAVE HIS WIFE A SURPRISE

WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT,

A TRIP TO ST. MARTIN.

THE TWO WERE TRAPPED ON

THE ISLAND WHEN THE

HURRICANE HIT.

HE POSTED PHOTOS OF THE

DESTRUCTION ON SOCIAL

MEDIA AND TWEETED: "WE ARE

SAFE.

NO POWER.

EVERYTHING DESTROYED.

BUILDINGS GONE.

PLEASE PRAY AS THEY ISLAND

IS DECIMATEDED."

DECIMATED."

HEAVY RAIN AFFECTED PUERTO

RICO.

PARTS OF THE ISLAND COULD

BE WITHOUT POWER FOR FOUR

TO SIX MONTHS.

IN THE FLORIDA KEYS,

25,000 PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY

BEEN EVACUATED.

MANDATORY EVACUATIONS TOOK

PLACE IN SOME MIAMI

NEIGHBORHOODS, AND TRAFFIC

JAMS ON SOME EVACUATION

ROUTES WERE COMMON PLACE.

I'VE BEEN THROUGH

GEORGE, I'VE BEEN THROUGH

ANDREW, I'VE BEEN THROUGH

WILMA, BUT I'M NOT STAYING

FOR IRMA.

Reporter: EVACUEES

ARE SEEKING REFUGEE IN

HOTEL ROOMS IN CENTRAL

GEORGIA.

MOST ARE SOLD OUT.

GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT WARNED

PEOPLE TO FIND A SAFE

PLACE.

EVERY FLORIDIAN SHOULD

TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.

POSSESSIONS CAN BE

REPLACED; YOU'RE FAMILY

CANNOT.

Reporter: FLORIDIANS

WAITED IN LONG LINES TO

FILL UP THEIR FUEL TANKS.

GAS IS RUNNING OUT

EVERYWHERE RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: THE LATEST

TRACK SHOWS IRMA

DOWNGRADING TO A CATEGORY

4 HURRICANE.

THEN MOVING UP TO THE

GEORGIA COAST AND SOUTH

CAROLINA.

IRMA COULD CAUSE A GREAT

DEAL OF DAMAGE, JUST AS

HURRICANE HARVEY DID WHEN

IT FLOODED PARTS OF TEXAS.

THAT WOULD MEAN MORE OF

DISASTER RELIEF SPENDING

FROM WASHINGTON, WHERE

PRESIDENT TRUMP STRUCK A

DEAL WITH DEMOCRATS ON

WEDNESDAY TO RAISE THE

GOVERNMENT'S DEBT CEILING,

A DEAL THAT INCLUDED

RELIEF FUNDING TO HELP

AFTER HARVEY.

AND O.B. IS BUSY PREPARING

FOR POTENTIAL DISASTER IN

FLORIDA.

TRUCKLOADS OF WATER AND

FOOD SUPPLIES ARE NOW

BEING STAGED AT ITS OCALA,

FLORIDA, WAREHOUSE.

THAT MEANS "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEERS ARE

READY TO MOVE INTO ACTION,

WHENEVER AND WHEREVER

HURRICANE IRMA M MAKE

LANDFALL.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WITH US NOW IS

THE HEAD OF "OPERATION

BLESSING," BILL HURAN.

THIS IRMA IS COMING AND

ARE WE POSITIONED AND

READY TO GO IN FLORIDA?

ABSOLUTELY, PAT.

WE HAVE OUR STORM

HEADQUARTERS RIGHT THERE

IN OCALA, AND WE'VE BEEN

THERE SINCE SEPTEMBER OF

2004.

I JUST TALKED TO STEVE

O'GRADY ON THE PHONE, AND

EACH TRUCKLOAD HAS 35,000

GALLONS OF WATER ON BOARD.

WE HAVE THAT READY AND

STAGED, ALONG WITH FOOD,

DIAPERS, HYGIENE STUFF,

AND ALL KINDS OF MATERIALS

AND EQUIPMENT.

DAVID DAGA AND I ARE GOING

DOWN IN THE MORNING TO

OCALA, AND WE'LL BE THERE

BEFORE THE STORM COMES,

AND WE'LL BE

WELL-POSITIONED TO HELP.

Pat: HOW IS THIS

GOING TO BE DIFFERENT FROM

HARVEY?

PAT, I'VE GOT TO TELL

YOU, I'VE SEEN A THE LOT

OF STORMS IN MY LIFE, AND

NOTHING LIKE HARVEY.

EVERY MORNING YOU GET UP,

AND IT STARTS OVER.

ALL OF THAT WATER IS

COMING DOWN IN SOUTH

TEXAS.

AND THEY WERE STILL

PULLING PEOPLE OFF

ROOFTOPS YESTERDAY.

I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

LIKE IT IN MY LIFE.

I THINK THE FLOODING, BY

FAR, IS THE WORST THING

THAT HAS HAPPENED TO

TEXAS.

IT IS GOING TO BE THE

WIND, AND, OF COURSE, THE

WATER ON THE OCEAN FRONT,

THE TIDE SURGE --

Pat: YOU KNOW, I WAS

THERE, AS I SAY, THE BIG

ONE THAT HIT FLORIDA A FEW

YEARS AGO THAT WAS SO

DEVASTATING.

THEY HAD ACTUALLY

TORNADOES INSIDE OF THE

HURRICANE, AND THEY WENT

UP TO 210 MILES PER HOUR,

AND IT JUST RIPPED

EVERYTHING TO PIECES.

THAT'S WHAT IRMA IS

SUPPOSED TO DO.

THEY SAY IT IS SO BIG WE

CAN'T EVEN CONCEIVE OF

ANYTHING THAT ENORMOUS.

THEY SAY THE EYE IS

23 MILES IN DIAMETER.

180 PLUS MILE-AN-HOUR

WINDS FOR 35 HOURS NOW --

CAN YOU IMAGINE THE AMOUNT

OF WATER THAT IS PUSHING,

PAT?

Pat: YEAH.

THAT'S SO FLAT DOWN

THERE.

WE REALLY NEED TO PRAY FOR

THE PEOPLE --

Pat: WELL, PUERTO

RICO, PART OF IT MAY BE

WITHOUT POWER FOR AS MUCH

AS FOUR TO SIX MONTHS?

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT

PUERTO RICO?

WELL, OF COURSE,

THEY'RE BANKRUPT, AND ZIKA

IS ALL OVER THE PLACE FROM

THE MOSQUITOS.

WHEN WE WERE DOWN IN

ROCKPORT ON SATURDAY WITH

870 VOLUNTEERS HELPING

HOMEOWNERS DOWN THERE,

MOSQUITOS WERE SWARMING.

THEY WERE THIRSTY AND

BITING EVERYBODY.

SO YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THAT

GOING ON IN PUERTO RICO.

THERE IS NO TELLING NOW --

FORTUNATELY, THE STORM

CLOCKED A COUPLE DEGREES

NORTH, SO THEY DIDN'T GET

THE FULL BRUNT IT LOOKED

LIKE.

Pat: WHERE IS IT

GOING?

DO WE KNOW THE TRACK YET

OF IRMA?

WELL, THE BIG THING IS

WHERE AND WHEN IS IT GOING

TO MAKE ITS TURN NORTH?

AND THERE ARE ALL OF THE

TRACKS, THE SPAGHETTI

TRACKS, AND ALL OF THAT.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL

BARREL RIGHT INTO THE KEYS

AND INTO SOUTH FLORIDA AND

MIAMI AND THAT AREA.

BUT IT COULD BE OVER THE

INTERIOR OF THE STATE.

HEAVEN HELP THEM IF IT

DOES THAT.

IT WILL BE LIKE SPLITTING

A GOAL POST AND BOTH

COASTS WILL GET IT.

IT COULD TURN SOONER OR IT

COULD TURN LATER.

Pat: IS THERE ANY

CHANCE THIS THING WILL

JUMP INTO THE GULF?

ABOUT A 10% CHANCE,

THEY'RE SAYING.

IT DEPENDS ON WHEN IT PIF

VOTPIVOTS AND GOES NORTH.

Pat: THIS IS A

CATEGORY 5, THE BIGGEST

ONE TO COME OFF THE

ATLANTIC IN THE HISTORY OF

AMERICA.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

THESE ARE DISASTERS OF

BIBLICAL PROPORTION.

PROPORTIONS.

ONE AFTER THE OTHER, LIKE

BODY BLOWS, TO THE UNITED

STATES.

WE'RE KIND OF LIVING

DAY BY DAY NOW.

IT FORMED IN THE ATLANTIC,

TO THAT INTENSITY, AND NOW

IT IS IN THE CARIBBEAN,

AND IT IS EVEN WARMER

WATER.

THEY'RE HOPING IT WILL

BACK OFF TO A 4 BY THE

TIME IT GETS TO FLORIDA,

BUT IT COULD CRANK RIGHT

BACK UP TO A 5.

Pat: "OPERATION

BLESSING,""OPERATIONBLESSING" -- WELL, IT HAS

BEEN RECOGNIZED ALONG THE

WAY.

BUT THERE WAS A SPECIAL

GIFT THEY GOT TO HELP IN

THIS DISASTER RELIEF.

DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT

IT?

WE WERE HONORED TO BE

ONE OF 12 RECIPIENTS OF

CASH FROM THE PRESIDENT

AND HIS WIFE, PERSONAL

MONEY.

AND WE JUST FEEL VERY --

WE'RE VERY PLEASED WITH

THAT AND VERY HONORED THAT

THE PRESIDENT THINKS THAT

MUCH OF "OPERATION

BLESSING."

Pat: IT WAS NICE.

HE GAVE A MILLION DOLLARS

OF HIS OWN MONEY.

HE SURE DID.

Pat: $25,000 GOING TO

"OPERATION BLESSING"?

YES, SIR.

Pat: WHAT ARE YOU

GOING TO DO WITH THAT?

WE'LL PUT IT TO GOOD

USE, I'LL TELL YOU THAT.

Pat: YOU'RE DOING A

GREAT JOB.

YOU'VE GOT THE VOLUNTEERS

READY TO GO.

WILL THEY BE ABLE TO MOVE

IN FLORIDA?

WILL THE ROADS BE SO

JAMMED THEY CAN'T MOVE?

THERE WAS A PROBLEM IN

TEXAS JUST GETTING THROUGH

ALL OF THAT WATER.

YEAH, THAT IS GOING TO

BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST

PROBLEMS, LOGISTICS AND

TRAFFIC JAMS.

THERE IS JUST NO TELLING

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN

THERE.

WE'RE AS PREPARED AS WE

CAN.

WE ARE SERVING OR HAVE

SERVED 10 DIFFERENT

COMMUNITIES IN TEXAS.

THAT WHOLE COAST, ALL THE

WAY FROM ROCKPORT TO PORT

ALREADY AND IN BETWEEN.

WE'RE MAKING CASH GRANTS

TO THE CHURCHES THAT ARE

REALLY HELPING THE FOLKS

OVER THERE.

JODY IS DOWN THERE WITH

OUR TEAM.

WE'RE RUNNING VOLUNTEER

OPERATIONS IN THREE

DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES

RIGHT NOW.

SO HERE COMES IRMA, BUT

WE'RE AS READY AS WE CAN

BE.

Pat: OKAY.

BILL HORAN.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, FOR

"OPERATION BLESSING," IF

YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE,

THEY NEED YOUR MAN -- THEY

NEED HELP.

IT IS EASY TO REMEMBER.

"OPERATION BLESSING,"

EMERGENCY RELIEF EFFORT.

IT'S CBN CENTER, VIRGINIA

BEACH, VIRGINIA, 23463.

OR YOU CAN CALL ON THE

TELEPHONE, AND THE PHONE

IS SO EASY TO REMEMBER.

IT'S 1-800-700-7000.

1-800-700-7000.

THIS IS ONE OF THE GREAT

CHARITIES, FRANKLY, AND

ONE OF THE MOST EFFICIENT,

IF NOT PERHAPS THE MOST

EFFICIENT IN THE NATION.

I'M JUST REALLY THRILLED.

BILL, YOU'RE DOING A

TERRIFIC JOB.

GOD BLESS YOU, MAN.

THANK YOU, PAT, AND GOD

BLESS YOU.

Pat: WELL, IN OTHER

NEWS, REFORMING THE TAX

CODE AND CUTTING TAX RATES

ARE STILL AMONG THE

BIGGEST ISSUES IN

WASHINGTON.

REPUBLICANS SAY THEY

BELIEVE THEY CAN PASS A

PLAN THAT WILL BRING MORE

JOBS AND MORE PROSPERITY

TO AMERICA.

AND IT WILL STRENGTHEN THE

ECONOMY.

OUR ABIGAIL ROBERTSON HAS

THAT STORY.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

IN THE HOUSE, SENATE, AND

WHITE HOUSE ARE FORGING

AHEAD ON TAX REFORM,

PROMISING TO SIMPLIFY THE

TAX CODE IN A WAY THAT

PROVIDES RELIEF FOR ALL

AMERICANS.

President Trump: OUR

TAX CODE IS A GIANT,

SELF-INFECTED ECONOMIC

WOUND.

WE NEED TAX REFORM THAT IS

PRO-GROWTH, PRO-JOBS,

PRO-WORKER, PRO PRO-FAMILY,

AND, YES, PRO-AMERICAN.

Reporter: IVANKA

TRUMP IS GETTING INVOLVED

TO REFORM THE TAX CODE.

SHE SPOKE TO A GROUP OF

PRO-FAMILY ADVOCATES THIS

WEEK, ALONGSIDE MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS, TO DISCUSS WAYS

TO TAKE CARE OF THE NEEDS

OF FAMILIES BY EXPANDING

THE CHILD TAX CREDIT.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO

THE PRESIDENT AND THIS

ADMINISTRATION, THAT THIS

IS REALLY A TAX CUT FOR

THE MIDDLE CLASS AND FOR

WORKING FAMILIES.

ONE OF THE WAYS WE CAN

DELIVER A TAX CUT IS

THROUGH A MORE GENEROUS

CHILD TAX CREDIT.

THIS ADMINISTRATION IS

PUSHING FOR THE LARGEST

CHILD TAX CREDIT POSSIBLE.

Reporter: RALPH REID

IS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF

INCREASING THE CHILD TAX

CREDIT.

HE SAYS HE HELPED

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH

DOUBLE IT TO $1,000 16

YEARS AGO.

BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN

INCREASED SINCE.

WE THINK IT IS TIME.

WE THINK IT IS A HECK OF A

LOT MORE EFFECTIVE FOR

AMERICA'S CHILDREN TO LET

THOSE MOTHERS AND FATHERS

KEEP THE MONEY, THAN IT IS

TO SEND IT TO WASHINGTON

FOR WHAT BUREAUCRATS AND

POLITICIANS DECIDE HOW TO

SPEND THE MONEY.

Reporter: GROVER

NORQUEST SAYS IT IS TIME

TO GET RID OF MANY OF THE

PROBLEMS IN THE CURRENT

TAX CODE.

ECONOMIC GROWTH AND

CREATING MORE JOBS IS

TERRIBLY IMPORTANT, AND

ALSO, GOING THROUGH THE

CODE AND TAKING OUT

INEFFICIENCIES AND GETTING

RID OF THOSE, AND MAKING

SURE THAT FAMILIES ARE A

CENTRAL PART OF WHAT WE

WORRY ABOUT.

Reporter: NORQUEST

SAYS HE IS PLEASED THAT

REPUBLICANS IN THE WHITE

HOUSE AND BOTH HOUSES OF

CONGRESS SEEM TO BE

UNIFIED ON THE TAX PLAN.

THE GOOD NEWS IS PAUL

RYAN TOLD ME THAT THERE IS

97% AGREEMENT, THE HOUSE,

THE SENATE, AND THE WHITE

HOUSE.

SO NOW IT IS JUST A

QUESTION OF, WE KNOW THE

INGREDIENTS THAT ARE GOING

IN, BUT JUST HOW MUCH OF

EACH?

Reporter: THE

REPUBLICANS SEEM CONFIDENT

THEY WILL DELIVER ON THEIR

GOAL OF MEANINGFUL TAX

REFORM BY THE END OF THIS

YEAR.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, ABIGAIL.

A WONDERFUL REPORT.

FOLKS, IF THERE IS ANY

REASON TO WRITE YOUR

CONGRESSMAN NOW, WE NEED

TAX REFORM.

THE SMALL BUSINESSES NEED

IT.

AND THE PRESIDENT IS

TALKING ABOUT DOING AWAY

WITH THE DEATH TAX, SO

THAT FAMILY FARMS CAN BE

PASSED ON TO THE NEXT

GENERATION, AND SMALL

BUSINESSES CAN BE

ASSISTED.

PEOPLE WHO FILED FOR

ESCORPS, AND SO FORTH --

THESE ARE SMALL

BUSINESSES.

THESE ARE THE JOB CREATORS

OF AMERICA, MUCH MORE THAN

THE GREAT BIG

CORPORATIONS.

AND THE LITTLE GUYS NEED A

HAND, AND THIS IS A TAX

CUT FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS.

IT IS A TAX CUT FOR SMALL

BUSINESSES.

A TAX CUT THAT IS URGENTLY

NEEDED TO MAKE US

COMPETITIVE WITH THE REST

OF THE WORLD.

THERE IS NO REASON -- IF

SOMEBODY STANDS IN THE WAY

OF THAT, THERE IS

SOMETHING WRONG WITH THEM.

YOUR CONGRESSMAN NEEDS TO

UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE

CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

AND IF YOU WRITE YOUR

CONGRESSMAN, IF YOU'RE ON

THE TELEPHONE TALKING TO

YOUR CONGRESSMAN -- THERE

IS THE NUMBER.

202-224-3121.

THAT'S THE NUMBER OF THE

CAPITAL SWITCH BOARD.

CALL AND SAY, LOOK, IT IS

TIME FOR TAX RELIEF FOR

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THE TAX CODE IS A

DISGRACE.

YOU REMEMBER JIMMY CARTER

SAYING IT IS A DISGRACE TO

THE HUMAN RACE?

IT IS A DISGRACE.

AND IT IS TIME IT GET

REFORMED.

AND NOW YOU'VE GOT A

PRESIDENT AND TWO HOUSES

OF CONGRESS THAT SEEM TO

BE ON BOARD.

AND THERE IS NOTHING WE

SHOULD NOT ALLOW A SMALL

GROUP OF NAY-SAYERS TO

STAND IN THE WAY.

IT IS TIME TO GET THIS

DEAL DONE FOR THE GOOD OF

AMERICA.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

WE'VE GOT TIME COMING UP

FOR YOUR QUESTIONS AND

HONEST ANSWERS.

CAROL SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

RECENTLY CONVERTED ALL OF

OUR INVESTMENTS INTO GOLD

OR SILVER BECAUSE HE FEELS

OUR FINANCIAL SYSTEM IS

GOING TO COLLAPSE.

WAS THIS A WISE MOVE?"

PAT IS GOING TO WEIGH IN

ON THAT AND MORE.

> FIRST, THE HIDDEN SIDE

OF ANTIFA THAT YOU SEE

REPORTED IN THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA.

FIND OUT WHAT THEY'RE

REALLY PROTESTING, AND HOW

THEY PLAN TO GET WHAT THEY

WANT.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: THEY'VE BEEN IN

THE NEWS RECENTLY, BUT

MORE THAN THREE YEARS AGO,

CBN NEWS WARNED AMERICA

ABOUT A GROUP CALL ANTIFA.

THE SO-CALLED ANTI-FASCIST

FAR-LEFT GROUP THAT HAS

BEEN ATTACKING PEOPLE AND

DESTROYING PROPERTY IN

EUROPE FOR DECADES.

A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS

GROUP SHOWS THERE IS

NOTHING DEMOCRATIC OR

PEACEFUL ABOUT IT.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THIS

IMPORTANT STORY.

[YELLING]

Reporter: THE BLACK

CLAD MEMBERS OF ANTIFA

WERE TREATED AS HEROS FOR

FACING OFF AGAIN NEONAZIS

AND THE KU KLUX KLAN IN

CHARLOTTESVILLE.

CHRIS CUOMO ME CAMPAIGNED

THEM TCOMPAREDTHEM TO THE SOLDIERS

FIGHTING HITLER.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED NEXT IN

BERKELEY, WHERE ANTIFA

BEAT UP PEACEFUL

DEMONSTRATORS FORCED MORE

AND MORE TO CONDEMN THE

MOVEMENT.

AMERICANS ARE LEARNING

WHAT EUROPEANS ALREADY

KNOW: THAT ANTIFA, WHICH

CLAIMS TO FIGHT RACE CISM

AND FASISM IS NOT WHAT IT

MEANS.

ANTIFA IS NOT A SINGLE

ORGANIZATION, BUT A

MUSEUM.

MOVEMENT.

THEY SEEK THE OVERFLOW OF

CAPITALIST SYSTEMS.

HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM

OUR STORY OF THREE YEARS,

WHEN WE WARNED ABOUT THE

VIOLENCE OF ANTIFA IN

EUROPE.

IF YOU WANT A GLIMPSE OF

HOW BAD IT COULD BECOME IN

AMERICA IN THE FUTURE,

LOOK TO EUROPE.

TAKE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE

VALUES OF GOD, COUNTRY,

AND TRADITIONAL VALUES TO

WESTERN EUROPE, AND YOU

WOULD BE BRANDED EXTREME

RIGHT, ANTI-WOMAN, AND

EVEN HOMOPHOBIC AND

ANTI-NAZI.

AND YOU COULD BE

PHYSICALLY ATTACKED.

OR IN SWEDEN, YOUR HOME

MIGHT BE WRECKED.

YOU COULD GET BEATEN

UP.

WE SEE THAT IN SWEDEN.

YOU HAVE THESE SO-CALLED

ANTI-FASCISTS COMING TO

RIGHT-WINGERS' HOMES AND

WRECKING THEIR APARTMENT.

DESTROYING THE PICTURES,

TEAR UP THE BOOKS, GENERAL

DESTRUCTION.

AND THEN THEY MAKE A VIDEO

OF IT AND PUT IT OUT ON

THE WEB.

SEE WHAT WE DID TO THIS

GUY.

Reporter: UNDER THE

BANNER OF FIGHTING RACISM,

LEFT-WING RADICALS

TERRORIZE THOSE WHO DARE

TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST

MULTI-CULTURISM.

KIM IS A LEADING EXPERT ON

THE EXTREME GROUPS IN IN

DENMARK.

THEY CALL THEM

ANTI-RACISTS, A MORE

HUMANE SOCIETY AND SO ON.

BUT THEIR GOAL IS TO SMASH

DEMOCRACY AS WE KNOW IT.

Reporter: IT LOOKS

LIKE THEY ARE AGAINST

FASCISM, BUT THEY'RE

REALLY AGAINST

PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACY?

YES.

WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT

REVOLUTION IN DENMARK,

PEOPLE SAY CRAZY.

BUT WHEN YOU SAY YOU FIGHT

RACISM, SUDDENLY EVERYBODY

IS AGAINST RACISM.

Reporter: WHAT YOU

READ FIRST IS RESIST HATE

AND RACISM.

THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

BUT KEEP READING.

NEXT IS PATRIARCHY, AND

THAT IS LEFTEST CODE FOR

JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES.

ANTIFA CAN ALSO BE DEFINED

NOT ONLY BY WHO IT

OPPOSES, BUT BY WHO IT

ALMOST NEVER OPPOSES:

RADICAL ISLAM.

THE QUESTION IS WHY?

RADICAL ISLAM TREATS WOMEN

AS PROPERTY AND CALLS FOR

DEATH FOR ADULTERERS AND

HOMOSEXUALS.

THAT SHOULD BE REPUGNANT

TO LEFTEST RADICALS.

BUT ANTIFA IS MORE LIKELY

TO RALLY AGAINST ANTI-HOM

ANTI-HOMPHOBICS.

THE LEFT AND THE

JIHADIS BOTH HATE AMERICA.

THEY BOTH ARE GLOBALISTS,

INTERNATIONALISTS, AND

THEY BOTH HAVE CONTEMPT

FOR BORDERS AND FOR NATION

STATES.

AND THEY BOTH THINK THERE

OUGHT TO BE ONE GREAT

WORLD GOVERNMENT.

AND SO THEY HATE THE

UNITED STATES AS BEING THE

FOREMOST -- THE ONLY

SUPERPOWER IN THE WORLD,

AND THUS THE FOREMOST

OBSTACLE TO THEIR VISION

FOR THE WORLD.

Reporter: THE

LEFT-DOMINATED EUROPEAN

MEDIA HAS GIVEN ANTIFA A

PASS, TREATING THEM MORE

LIKE ROWDY TEENAGERS.

AND SOME ANY ANTIFA HAS

BECAME THE LEFT'S MUSCLE

IN EUROPE, DRIVING

CONSERVATIVES OUT OF THE

MAINSTREAM AND

UNDERGROUND.

THIS IS WHAT HAS COME TO

AMERICA AND IT IS GROWING.

THEY'RE ATTRACTING LARGE

NUMBERS OF SO CALL

PROGRESSIVES.

THEY'RE EVEN ATTRACTING

SCHOOL TEACHERS.

ANTIFA OFFERS A RADICAL

SOLUTION, AND ITS GOAL,

ACCORDING TO ONE LEADER,

IS TO MAKE AMERICA

UNGOVERNABLE.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THAT'S HOW

HITLER TOOK OVER POWER IN

GERMANY.

FIRST OF ALL, THEY BEGAN

RIOTING AND A LAWLESS

REGIME, AND THEN THE

GOVERNMENT HAD TO GET

STRONG TO CUT DOWN AND THE

LAWLESSNESS.

AND OUT OF THAT CAME THE

FASCIST DICTATORSHIP OF

ADOLPH HITLER.

WE DON'T WANT THAT HERE IN

AMERICA.

THESE GUYS NEED TO BE

LOCKED UP, AND IF NEED BE,

THEY NEED TO BE HUNTED

DOWN LIKE THE ANIMALS THEY

ARE.

WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS KIND

OF STUFF IN OUR SOCIETY.

BUT IT IS BEING ALLOWED.

IF THOSE PEOPLE ARE SO

SPINELESS IN BERKELEY TO

ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE,

SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE

AT A HIGHER LEVEL IN

CALIFORNIA.

MAYBE OR MAYBE NOT, BUT

YOU JUST HOPE.

YOU'VE SEEN IT HERE ON

CBN.

YOU SAY IT COULDN'T

POSSIBLY HAPPEN IN

AMERICA.

WELL, IT IS HAPPENING IN

AMERICA.

THAT'S NOT A EUROPEAN

PHENOMENON.

IT IS IN CALIFORNIA RIGHT

NOW.

OKAY.

Terry: SHOCKING,

PRETTY SHOCKING.

Pat: SHOCKING.

Terry: WELL, WE'VE

GOT SOME QUESTIONS FOR

YOU.

AND WE HAVE SOME HONEST

ANSWERS.

NOW, THIS IS FROM CAROL

WHO SAYS, "PAT, MY HUSBAND

RECENTLY CONVERTED ALL OF

OUR INVESTMENTS INTO GOLD

OR SILVER.

HE FEELS THE LORD IS

GUIDING HIM TO DO THIS.

HE LISTENS TO DIFFERENT

COMMENTATORS ON THE

INTERNET WHO SAY OUR

FINANCIAL SYSTEM IS GOING

TO COLLAPSE BECAUSE OF OUR

COUNTRY'S HUGE DEBT.

ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT

THIS?

DO YOU THINK THERE ARE

MEASURES CHRISTIANS SHOULD

TAKE TO HEDGE AGAINST

INFLATION?"

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

IDEA OF GOLD AS A BIG

HEDGE AGAINST INFLATION --

WE REALLY HAVEN'T HAD ANY

INFLATION.

INFLATION HAS BEEN DOWN SO

LOW.

OUR PROBLEM IS DEFLATION,

NOT INFLATION, RIGHT AT

THE PRESENT MOMENT.

YOU LOOK AT A FELLOW NAMED

BUFFET.

HE HAS MADE HIS MONEY ON

THE IDEA THAT THE AMERICAN

ECONOMY WOULD GROW, AND HE

WAS GOING TO GET STOCKS

THAT WOULD GROW AT THE

RATE OF 25%, 26% A YEAR,

COMPOUNDED.

AND THAT'S HOW HE THINKS

THAT GOLD IS A BARBARIC

RELIC AND IT DOESN'T HAVE

ANY INTEREST.

THE JURY IS STILL OUT ON

GOLD AND SILVER.

BUT TO PUT ALL OF YOUR

MONEY INTO SOMETHING LIKE

IS, I THINK, VERY UNWISE.

THE STOCK MARKET IS DOING

EXTREMELY WELL THESE DAYS.

AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY

IS DOING WELL.

AND A LITTLE BIT OF GOLD

ALONG THE WAY SO SORT OF

AN ANCHOR TO THE RIGHT OR

THE LEFT OR WHATEVER YOU

WANT TO SAY.

BUT ANYTHING MORE THAN

THAT IS FOOLISH, I THINK.

Terry: THIS IS BROCK

WHO SAYS, "I CANNOT FIND

ANYTHING IN THE NEW

TESTAMENT THAT OBLIGATES

ME, A GENTILE, TO TITHE

10% TO GOD.

HAS GOD LEFT IT UP TO ME?

I'M VERY THRIFTY BUT DON'T

WANT TO CHEAT GOD.

I'VE NOT GIVEN REGULARLY

IN THIS REGARD FOR MANY

YEARS.

COULD YOU PLEASE RECOMMEND

A BASIC STANDARD, IF THERE

IS ONE, FOR THIS PENNY

PINCHER.

I HAVE A TOTAL AND NET

INCOME, AND WHICH SHOULD I

BASE MY DECISION ON, IF

EITHER.

ALSO, IS THIS TYPE OF GIFT

TITHE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD

WHEN APPLIED TO A

TELEVISION MINISTRY, SUCH

AS YOURS.

I ALSO HAVE A GREAT

COMPASSION FOR PEOPLE WITH

ANY TYPE OF BREATHING

PROBLEM.

WOULD A DONATION TO ANY OF

THESE NOT QUALIFY --

Pat: GOOD GRIEF.

YOU'RE ASKING ABOUT FOUR

QUESTIONS AT A TIME.

THE RULE WAS THAT JACOB

WAS WRESTLING WITH THE

LORD, AND HE SAID, LOOK,

YOU LOOK AFTER ME, BRING

ME BACK, DON'T LET ME HAVE

ANY PAIN, AND I'LL GIVE

YOU 10%.

WASN'T THAT A BIG DEAL?

YOU TAKE CARE OF ME AND

I'LL GIVE YOU 10%.

JACOB WAS A DEAL-MAKER.

10% HAS BEEN THE IDEA OF A

TITHE, THAT YOU WOULD GIVE

THAT UNTO THE LORD.

BUT MANY PEOPLE, 10%, 20%,

30% IS WHAT THEY GIVE.

ACCORDING TO THE I.R.S.,

YOU CAN GIVE 50%.

CH THTHE QUESTION IS -- YOU

TITHE AND OFFER OUT OF THE

ABUNDANCE OF YOUR HEART.

GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL

GIVER.

THE IDEA IS WE GIVE TO THE

POOR, WE GIVE TO THE

NEEDY.

THE OVERALL CHURCH

INCLUDES HOSPITALS, IT

INCLUDES MINISTRIES LIKE

CBN, IT INCLUDES

TELEVISION, IT INCLUDES

SCHOOLS -- IT INCLUDES SO

MANY THINGS THAT WE GIVE

AS UNTO THE LORD.

I CAN'T TELL YOU WHICH ONE

TO GIVE TO.

YOU LET THE LORD LEAD YOU.

A TITHE IS A MINIMUM OF

WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "CAN YOU HAVE A

MENTAL ILLNESS AND STILL

HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST?

AND HOW DO MOST MENTAL

HEALINGS TAKE PLACE?

I ASK BECAUSE I'M DEALING

WITH ONE MYSELF, AND I

HAVE SET MY MIND TO BE

READY TO BE COMPLETELY

DELIVERED BY THE LORD."

Pat: THE LORD HA WILL

SET YOU FREE.

THESE ARE HARD QUESTIONS

THAT YOU'RE GIVING BECAUSE

THEY DON'T HAVE EASY

ANSWERS.

YOU KNOW, WE ARE UNDER THE

CONCLUSION -- AND I THINK

IT IS A RIGHT ONE -- THAT

A PERSON SUFFERING FROM A

MENTAL DISEASE DOES NOT

SIN BECAUSE THEY DON'T

UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG.

SO I THINK THE IDEA OF AN

IDIOT COMMITTING SOME

HORRIBLE CRIME OR SIN

ISN'T IN THE OFFERING.

YOU WROTE THAT QUESTION

HAVING TO DO WITH SOME

MENTAL PROBLEM THAT YOU

HAVE, BUT YOU DIDN'T SAY

WHAT IT WAS.

SO IT COULD BE THAT YOU'RE

PSYCHOTIC, THAT YOU HAVE A

SPLIT PERSONALITY, THAT

YOU HAVE SOMETHING -- I

DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS.

AND IF YOU'RE THROES OF

SOME PSYCHOTIC EPISODE, IT

SHOULDN'T BE COUNTED

AGAINST YOU.

BEYOND THAT, THOUGH, YOU

NEED TO HAVE TREATMENT.

THERE ARE CHEMICALS THAT

CAUSE YOU TO HAVE SOME OF

THESE PROBLEMS, AND THERE

ARE CHEMICALS THAT WILL

COUNTER AGAINST IT.

THERE IS THE OLD-FASHIONED

PSYCHPSYCHOANALYSIS THAT LET'S

YOU GO THROUGH YOUR

PROBLEMS AND WORK OUT AN

ANSWER.

THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS OF

GETTING HELP.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE

TRAINED SO WELL, WHO ARE

CHRISTIANS.

YOU NEED TO FIND SOMEBODY

THAT WAY TO GIVE YOU THE

HELP YOU NEED.

I BELIEVE CHRISTIAN

PSYCHOLOGY AND PSYCHIATRY

IS TAUGHT AT REGENT.

I DO BELIEVE WE NEED TO

GIVE PEOPLE HELP.

BUT YOUR QUESTION IS TOO

VAGUE FOR PLEA TO GIVE YOU

AN ANSWER.

I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT

WE'RE DEALING WITH.

Terry: WE DO THANK

YOU FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

COMING UP, WE'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR THE VICTIMS

OF HURRICANE HARVEY, AND

WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

IRMA'S TRACK NORTH.

AND WE WANT YOU TO JOIN

PAPER

Terry: WE'VE ALREADY

MENTIONED IT TODAY, BUT

HURRICANE HARVEY IS ONE OF

THE COSTLIEST HURRICANES

IN HISTORY.

THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE ACROSS SOUTHEAST

TEXAS SAW THEIR HOMES

FLOODED AND LIVES

UPROOTED.

SO WE WANT TO LIFT UP THE

VICTIMS OF THIS STORM,

BEGINNING WITH AN ERNEST

PRAYER TO THE GOD OF

REFUGE AND STRENGTH, AND

ALSO PRAY FOR IRMA.

Gordon: THE GOVERNOR

OF TEXAS AND THE PRESIDENT

OF THE UNITED STATES HAVE

ASKED THE NATION TO PRAY

FOR TEXAS.

LET US JOIN IN PRAYER FOR

THOSE IN NEED IN THE

AFTERMATH OF THIS TERRIBLE

STORM.

LET'S READ PSALM 46.

"GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND

STRENGTH, A VERY PRESENT

HELP IN TROUBLE.

THEREFORE WE WILL NOT

FEAR, EVEN THOUGH THE

EARTH BE REMOVED AND

THOUGH THE MOUNTAINS BE

CARRIED INTO THE MIDST OF

THE SEA, THOUGH ITS WATERS

ROAR AND BE TROUBLED,

THOUGH THE MOUNTAINS SHAKE

WITH ITS SWELLING, THERE

IS A RIVER WHO'S STREAM

SHALL MAKE GLAD THE CITY

OF GOD, THE HOLY PLACE OF

THE TABERNACLE OF THE MOST

HIGH.

GOD IS IN THE MIDST OF

HER.

AND SHE SHALL NOT BE

MOVED.

GOD SHALL HELP HER JUST AT

THE BREAK OF DAWN."

LET US PRAY TOGETHER.

HEAVENLY FATHER, OUR

REFUGE AND STRENGTH AND

OUR VERY PRESENT HELP IN

TROUBLE, WE LIFT TO YOU

THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LOVED

ONES AND ASK THAT YOU BE

WITH THEM IN THEIR TIME OF

GRIEF.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE SICK AND

INJURED, WE PRAY YOU BRING

THEM HEALING AND CARE.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING, THEIR HOMES,

THEIR POSSESSIONS, THE

THINGS THAT REMIND US OF

OUR FAMILIES AND OUR

LIVES, WE ASK THAT YOU

WOULD BE THE GOD OF ALL

COMFORT TO THEM.

FOR THOSE WITHOUT WATER,

WITHOUT FOOD, AND WITHOUT

SHELTER, SEND AID QUICKLY

AND ENABLE US TO BE YOUR

HANDS EXTENDED TO THEM IN

THEIR TIME OF NEED.

FOR THE RESCUE WORKERS,

FOR THE FIRST RESPONDERS,

AND FOR EVERYONE PROVIDING

AID, STRENGTHEN AND

ENCOURAGE THEM AND PROTECT

THEM FROM ALL HARM.

MAY THEY FIND JOY IN THEIR

WORK AND REST AT THE END

OF THE DAY.

AND NOW WE PRAY FOR

AMERICA.

MAY WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER,

JUST AS YOU HAVE LOVED US.

MAY WE UNITE TOGETHER TO

HELP OUR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS IN THEIR TIME OF

NEED, SO THAT WE CAN TRULY

BE ONE NATION UNDER GOD,

INDEVISABLE, WITH LIBERTY

AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

AMEN AND AMEN.

GOD BLESS TEXAS.

Terry: BOY, GOD BLESS

TEXAS.

AS BILL HORAN WAS SAYING A

LITTLE BIT AGO, IT IS

STILL HAPPENING THERE.

IT IS NOT OVER.

Pat: LET'S PRAY

AGAIN.

FATHER, WE REACH OUT TO

THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE

SUFFERING.

LORD, THEY'RE CRYING OUT

TO YOU.

THEY'VE LOST EVERYTHING.

EVERYTHING MATERIAL.

THEY STILL HAVE THEIR

FAMILIES.

THEY STILL HAVE THEIR

FAMILIES AND THEY STILL

HAVE HOPE.

LORD, THANK YOU THAT AID

IS COMING TO THEM, BUT I'M

SURE MUCH TOO LITTLE TOO

LATE.

WE THINK OF THIS

MONSTEROUS THING THAT IS

HITTING THE CARIBBEAN.

WE THINK OF PEOPLE IN

PUERTO RICO WHO WILL BE

WITHOUT POWER FOR MONTHS

ON END.

WE THINK OF THOSE WHO ARE

SUFFERING, WHO HAVE LOST

LOVED ONES, WHO WERE IN

THE PATH OF THAT STORM,

SEEING THEIR WHOLE HOMES

RIPPED APART, THEIR

POSSESSIONS STREWN ABOUT

THEM.

LORD, WHEN WE THINK OF

WHAT MAY BE COMING INTO

FLORIDA, WE ASK, LORD,

THAT YOU MIGHT PUT UP YOUR

HAND OF COMPASSION.

LORD, LOOK AFTER THESE

PEOPLE.

MANY OF THEM LOVE YOU.

THEY'RE TRYING OUT TO YOU.

LISTEN TO THEIR PRAYER,

LORD, WE PRAY.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, LET

A HAND GO FORTH THAT

BLOCKS THAT AWFUL STORM IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

KEEP PRAYING.

KEEP PRAYING ABOUT IRMA.

KEEP PRAYING ABOUT THAT

THING THAT TOOK PLACE IN

TEXAS.

IT'S NOT OVER YET.

THEY'RE NOT OUT OF THE

WOODS YET.

WE NEED TO KEEP PRAYING

AND LOVE PEOPLE.

TERRY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

HE WAS AT THE BEACH WITH

HUS DAUGHTEHIHIS DAUGHTER WHEN AN ARAB

MAN ASKED HIM IF HE WAS

AMERICAN.

HE TOOK ABOUT THESE

PACES, AND CALLED TO ME,

WHEN I STOOD UP, HE HAD A

.9-MILLIMETER.

AS HE DID THAT, THE

BULLET WENT OFF.

Terry: AND WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT HAD THE

SHOOTER IN TEARS.

YOU'LL SEE WHY WHEN WE

COME BACK.

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

WELL, FLORIDA READY FOR

HURRICANE IRMA, SEVERAL

WESTERN STATES ARE

FIGHTING MAJOR WILDFIRES.

CALIFORNIA HAS SEVERAL,

INCLUDING A BIG ONE IN

MADERA AND MIRAPOSA

COUNTIES.

I GOT HERE AND THE

FLAMES WERE COMING OVER

THE MOUNTAIN.

IT WAS SO SCARY.

Wendy: FIREFIGHTERS

IN WASHINGTON AND OREGON

HAVE ALSO BEEN BATTLING

BLAZES.

SOME WILDFIRES IN MONTANA

HAVE LEFT ANOTHER MONTH OR

MORE.

> WELL, THE PERCENTAGE

OF AMERICANS WHO IDENTIFY

AS WHITE AND CHRISTIAN HAS

DROPPED BELOW 50%.

CHRISTIANS ARE STILL A

LARGE MAJORITY IN THE

U.S., BUT NOW WHITE

CHRISTIANS ONLY MAKE UP

43% OF THE POPULATION.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE

PUBLIC RELIGION RESEARCH

INSTITUTE.

FOUR DECADES AGO, ABOUT

80% OF AMERICANS WERE

WHITE CHRISTIANS.

THE CHANGE COMES FROM

IMMIGRATION AND BECAUSE

MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE

REJECTING ORGANIZED

RELIGION ALL TOGETHER.

> WELL, YOU CAN ALWAYS

TERRY WILL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WHEN 9/11 HIT,

RAY NORMAN AND HIS

DAUGHTER WERE HALF A WORLD

AWAY.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THEY

WERE SPARED OF THE ITS

EFFECTS.

AT THE TIME, RAY WAS AN

AIDE WORKER IN AN ISLAMIC

COUNTRY.

AND ANTI-AMERICANISM WAS

IN THE AIR.

SOON THAT LED TO A BULLET

BEING FIRED INTO HIS

DAUGHTER'S CHEST.

Reporter: THE DAYS

AND WEEKS FOLLOWING 9/11

WERE TENUOUS TIMES FOR

AMERICANS, ESPECIALLY FOR

PEOPLE LIKE RAY NORMAN AND

HIS FAMILY.

HIS WORK WITH THE

CHRISTIAN HUMANITARIAN

ORGANIZATION "WORLD

VISION" HAD BROUGHT THEM

TO MAURATANIA ON THE WEST

COAST OF AFRICA.

WE WERE THE LARGEST

HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATION

WORKING WITH THE

GOVERNMENT TO FIGHT

POVERTY IN THE COUNTRY.

I KNEW THERE WERE SOME

POCKETS OF EXTREMISM IN

THE COUNTRY THAT WERE NOT

HAPPY WITH OUR PRESENCE.

THERE WAS ROCKS THROWN AT

OUR CARS, AND THE

GOVERNMENT ASSIGNED GUARDS

IN OUR HOME AND OUR

OFFICE, AROUND MY

DAUGHTER'S SCHOOL.

IT WAS A VERY TENSE TIME.

Reporter: AFTER FIVE

WEEKS, SECURITY MEASURES

WERE LIGHTENED AS TENSIONS

EASED.

RAY DECIDED TO TAKE HIS

DAUGHTER, HANNAH, TO A

NEARBY BEACH.

HE HAD GOTTEN OUT TO LOCK

THE WHEELS INTO FOUR-WHEEL

DRIVE WHEN AN ARAB MAN

WALKED UP AND GREETED HIM.

HE ASKED ME IF I WAS AN

AMERICAN, WHICH DIDN'T

ALARM ME AT THE MOMENT.

I SAID, YES, I AM.

HE SAID, WELL, THANK YOU,

AND HE WENT ON HIS WAY.

HE TOOK ABOUT THREE PACES,

TURNED AROUND AND CALLED

TO ME.

WHEN I STOOD UP, HE HAD A

9-MILLIMETER PISTOL AIMED

AT MY CHEST.

AS A FATHER, ALL OF MY

THOUGHTS ARE ABOUT HOW TO

I PROTECT HANNAH.

I WAS HOPING IF HE GOT ME,

MAYBE HE WOULD LEAVE HER

ALONE.

I SCREAMED, DADDY, THAT

MAN HAS A GUN.

HE HAS A GUN.

Reporter: AS RAY

SCRAMBLED TO GET IN THE

VEHICLE, THE MAN PULLED

THE TRIGGER, BUT THE GUN

MISFIRED.

IT WENT CLICK, CLICK,

CLICK.

AND HE TOOK THE GUN AND

TAPPED IT TWICE, AND TOOK

AIM AGAIN.

WITH HANNAH SCREAMING, HE

TOOK THE GUN'S AIM AF OF

ME AND AIMED AT HANNAH.

MY DAD WENT UP AGAINST

THE WINDOW TO BLOCK THE

MAN'S VIEW OF ME.

AS HE DID THAT, THAT

BULLET WENT OFF.

THE BULLET CAME THROUGH

MY RIGHT ARM.

GLASS WENT EVERYWHERE,

INTO OUR EYES, INTO OUR

SKIN.

Reporter: RAY SPUN

OFF AS THE MAN FIRED INTO

THE REAR WINDOW.

THEY MADE IT TO SAFETY,

BUT SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

I FELT OUT OF BREATH.

I FELT LIKE SOMEBODY HAD

PUNCHED ME.

THE BULLET THAT HAD

GONE THROUGH MY ARM HAD

STRUCK HER IN THE CENTER

OF HER CHEST.

AND SO MY WORLD CRUMBLED.

AND THEN SHE SAID TO ME,

WELL, DADDY, AM I ABOUT TO

DIE?

AND I COULD ONLY RESPOND

IN FAITH, AND SOMETHING

WELLED UP WITHIN ME, AND I

SAID, HANNAH, YOUR NOT

GOING TO DIE.

HE SAID, I NEED YOU TO

PRAY.

I SAID, DADDY, I CAN DO

THAT.

I CALLED THE NAME OF JESUS

OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

Reporter: RAY SPEAD

TOWARDS THE NEAREST

CLINIC, PRAYING

DESPERATELY FOR HIS

DAUGHTER.

I SAID, LORD, THIS IS

NOT THE WAY IT IS SUPPOSED

TO BE.

Reporter: CLINIC

STAFF ATTENDED TO HANNAH

AND RUSHED HER IN FOR

X-RAYS.

IT TURNED OUT WHEN THE

BULLET HAD HIT HER CHEST,

IT BOUNCED OFF HER STERNUM

AND EXITED IN HER ARMPIT.

BUT THE BULLET HAD NO

PENETRATED HER LUNGS OR

HEART AND SHE WAS GOING TO

SURVIVE.

Reporter: BY THEN,

FRIENDS HAD GATHERED THE

CLINIC TO SUPPORT THEM.

I REMEMBER WITH TEARS

RAISING MY HANDS IN THE

AIR AND SAYING, LORD,

THANK YOU.

YOUR PROMISES ARE TRUE AND

FAITHFUL.

I REMEMBER A MUSLIM FRIEND

LOOKED AT ME AND SAID,

YES, YOUR JESUS IS

FAITHFUL.

Reporter: BOTH WERE

PATCHED UP AND FLOWN TO

PARIS FOR MEDICAL

ATTENTION.

AND HELEN WAS FINALLY ABLE

TO SEE HER DAUGHTER.

MY FIRST REACTION WAS

TO GO STRAIGHT TO HANNAH

AND TO HOLD HER.

SHE WAS SITTING UP IN BED

LOOKING VERY CHIPPER.

THE HOLY SPIRIT STEPPED IN

AND PROTECTED BOTH OF THEM

FROM THOSE BULLETS.

AND I WAS JUST SO

CONVINCED OF THAT FROM THE

BEGINNING.

Reporter: AS THEY

RECOVERED PHYSICALLY, THE

FAMILY TRIED TO MAKE SENSE

OF WHAT HAPPENED.

WHY DID HE TRY TO KILL

MY FATHER AND MYSELF?

SOMEONE WHO REPRESENTED

A PEOPLE THAT I HAD BEEN

CALLED TO SERVE IN THE

NAME OF CHRIST WOULD

INFLICT SUCH HARM.

YOU KNOW, THIS MAN HAD

NEVER GIVEN ME THE

OPPORTUNITY TO TELL HIM

HOW MUCH I CARED ABOUT HIM

AND HIS PEOPLE.

HE JUST WALKED OUT AND

SHOT.

I FELT SOMEWHAT SORRY

FOR HIM.

LIKE, WHY DID HE FEEL THE

NEED TO DO WHAT HE DID?

Reporter: A FEW DAYS

AFTER THE SHOOTING,

AUTHORITIES CAUGHT THE

GUNMAN, ALI al-SIDI.

A MUSLIM FRIEND OF RAY'S

EXPLAINED WHAT WOULD

LIKELY HAPPEN.

THIS MAN HAS SHAMED HIS

FAMILY, HIS CLAN.

MANY, MANY PEOPLE ARE VERY

UPSET WITH WHAT HE DID.

HE SAID, YOU NEED TO

UNDERSTAND BEFORE HIS CASE

EVER COMES TO TRIAL, HE

WILL BE PROBABLY

CONVENIENTLY DISAPPEAR.

I WAS SHOCKED.

WHY WOULD THAT HAPPEN?

WHY DOES HE DESERVE THAT?

I WAS ANGRY.

I WAS UPSET.

IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE TO ME

FOR THAT TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

REQUESTED A VISIT WITH ALI

IN PRISON.

SIX MONTHS LATER THEY WERE

FINALLY GRANTED A

FIVE-MINUTE VISIT.

SEEING HIM WAS JUST

SORT OF A RELIEF BECAUSE I

SAW THAT HE WAS HUMAN,

TOO.

AND HE WASN'T A MONSTER.

HE WAS JUST A MAN.

AND HE LOOKED REALLY SAD.

HE WAS OBVIOUSLY

SHOCKED TO SEE US.

AND YOU COULD TELL BY THE

LOOK ON HIS FACE THAT HE

WAS EXPECTING US TO ACCUSE

HIM, TO BRING HIM GRIEF.

I TURNED TO HANNAH, AND I

SAID, HANNAH, DO YOU WANT

TO SAY ANYTHING TO THE

PRISONER.

SHE ADDRESSED HIM DIRECTLY

AND SAID, MR. ALI, I HAVE

TWO THINGS I HAVE TO SAY.

FIRST I WANT TO KNOW WHY

YOU TRIED TO KILL MY

DADDY.

HE PAUSED FOR A WHILE

AND HE SAID, I LOST MY

HEAD.

I SAID, MR. ALI, I TOLD

NO BITTERNESS IN MY HEART

TOWARDS YOU AND I FORGIVE

YOU.

HE FROZE AND HE DIDN'T

MOVE FOR A COUPLE OF

SECONDS.

AND WHEN HE LOOKED UP, WE

COULD ALL SEE HE HAD TEARS

IN HIS EYES.

I SAW HOW FRAGILE HE WAS.

AND EVEN THEN MY HEART

CONTINUED TO SOFTEN FOR

HIM.

IT WASN'T EASY.

I WAS STILL SHAKING AT THE

TIME.

I WAS ALSO HEARING GOD

USHERING ME INTO GETTING

CLOSER TO THIS MAN.

I JUST STARTED EXPLAINING

TO HIM THE FACT THAT MAYBE

GOD WAS THINKING ABOUT HIM

WHEN HE PROTECTED RAY AND

HANNAH BECAUSE HE HAD

DESIGNS AND PLANS FOR HIS

LIFE.

Reporter: THE NEXT

DAY THE NORMANS RECEIVED A

HANDWRITTEN LETTER FROM

ALI.

I CANNOT FIND THE WORDS

TO DESCRIBE OUR MEETING

TODAY.

ALTHOUGH I STILL FEEL

REMORSE WITH REGARD TO THE

EVIL I HAVE CAUSED YOU,

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE

DEPTH OF MY JOY IN SEEING

YOU WITH YOUR DAUGHTER,

THAT LITTLE ANGEL ALIVE

AND WELL.

MANY TIMES I HAVE HEARD OF

CHRISTIAN CHARITY, OF

CHRISTIAN KINDNESS AND

LOVE.

WHEN YOU CAME TO SEE ME, I

SAW IT AND EXPERIENCED IT.

Reporter: IN

ACCORDANCE WITH SHAR'IA

LAW, THE NORMAN FAMILY'S

PUBLIC FORGIVENESS HELP

COMMUTE ALI'S SENTENCE,

AND HE WAS RELEASED AFTER

ONE YEAR IN PRISON.

THE NORMANS NEVER GOT TO

SEE HIM AGAIN, BUT FOR

THEM THE EXPERIENCE

CONFIRMED EVERYTHING THEY

BELIEVE ABOUT THE GOD THEY

SERVE.

HE GIVES US THIS

ABILITY TO FORGIVE AND TO

LOVE THAT IS UNNATURAL.

AS NATURAL HUMAN BEINGS WE

CAN'T JUST DO THIS.

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE

WORLD, HE GAVE HIS SON.

FOR GOD SO LOVED MUSLIMS,

HE GAVE HIS SON.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

WORDS ARE SO EASY, AREN'T

THEY.

WE CAN EVEN READ THEM FROM

THE WORD OF GOD AND THEY

ROLL OFF OUR LIPS

BEAUTIFULLY.

AND WE SPEAK OF WHO WE ARE

AND WHAT WE BELIEVE AND

WHAT GOD CALLS US TO.

BUT IT IS YET ANOTHER

THING TO WALK THAT OUT IN

REAL LIFE.

YOU KNOW, THE REASON IT IS

SO HARD IS BECAUSE I

BELIEVE WHAT RAY'S

DAUGHTER SAID IS TRUE,

IT'S NOT NATURAL.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING WE CAN

DO ON OUR OWN.

MAYBE THAT'S WHY GOD HAS

CALLED US TO IT BECAUSE WE

CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT HIM.

BUT IT IS SUCH A SIGN TO

THE WORLD OF WHO HE IS

BECAUSE IT IS UNNATURAL.

AND WHEN WE SEE SOMEONE

WHO HAS SURRENDERED SO TO

THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST,

TO THE SACRIFICE HE CALLS

US TO, SOMETHING DRAWS US

TO THEM.

JUST BEYOND EXPLANATION.

AND IT DREW THIS MAN'S

HEART AS WELL.

YOU KNOW, WE CAN LIVE

HARBORING BITTERNESS AND

ANGER TO PEOPLE WHO

WOUNDED US, AND WE CAN

FEEL PRETTY RIGHTEOUS

ABOUT IT IF WHAT THEY HAVE

DONE IS BAD ENOUGH, BUT

THERE IS NOT ONLY NO

FREEDOM FOR US IN THAT,

YOU SEE THAT WILL EAT YOU

ALIVE OVER TIME.

THERE IS NO TESTIMONY.

WITHOUT A TEST, THERE IS

NO TESTIMONY.

THE TEST IS: WHAT ARE YOU

GOING TO DO WHEN YOU'RE IN

THAT HARD PLACE WHERE

SOMEBODY HAS WRONGED YOU,

WHERE SOMEBODY HAS HURT

YOU, TAKEN SOMETHING FROM

YOU, HURT SOMEONE THAT YOU

LOVE?

THE ONLY WAY FOR YOU TO

EXTEND THE KIND OF

FORGIVENESS THAT YOU SAW

THIS FAMILY EXTEND IS TO

DRAW NEAR TO THE HEART OF

GOD.

HE IS THE ONE WHO EMPOWERS

US.

HE IS THE ONE WHO GIVES US

THE ABILITY TO FORGIVE.

AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE

THE HALLMARK OF EVERY

CHRISTIAN, NOT JUST SOME.

SO TODAY, IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING WITH

FORGIVENESS IN YOUR LIFE,

I JUST WANT TO ENCOURAGE

YOU TO ASK GOD TO CHANGE

THAT IN YOU.

YOU KNOW HOW THAT BEGINS?

IT IS NOT LIKE SOME GREAT,

MAGICAL THING HAPPENS TO

YOU.

IT BEGINS THIS WAY, WHEN

YOU SAY, GOD, I AM

INCAPABLE OF DOING THIS ON

MY OWN, SO I'M COMING TO

YOU, DECLARING THAT I AM

HAHARBORING THESE THINGS,

AND IT IS SIN IN MY LIFE.

AND I'M ASKING YOU TO

FORGIVE ME AND TO HELP ME

RELEASE IT.

I'M GIVING IT TO YOU.

I SURRENDER IT TO YOU.

I'M ASKING YOU TO FILL ME

WITH YOUR AMAZING

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

AND THEN LET GOD BEGIN TO

DO THE WORK IN YOUR HEART.

IT BEGINS WITH YOU SAYING,

I WANT THIS, I NEED THIS,

AND I WANT TO DO WHATEVER

IT TAKES TO ACHIEVE THIS,

JESUS.

NOT ONLY WILL YOU BE SET

FREE, BUT THE WORLD WILL

SEE THE LIGHT OF CHRIST IN

YOU.

IF YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH

FORGIVENESS IN YOUR OWN

LIFE, WE'VE GOT A

WONDERFUL LITTLE PAMPHLET

THAT SHARES WHAT DOES GOD

HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT.

IT IS FREE FOR THE ASKING:

1-800-700-7000.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WOULD

LIKE THE FORGIVENESS

PAMPHLET.

AND IF YOU NEED PRAYER IN

YOUR OWN LIFE, THE PERSON

WHO ANSWERS THAT PHONE

WOULD LOVE TO PRAY WITH

YOU TODAY.

WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU

WITH PSALM 28: 7: "THE

LORD IS MY STRENGTH AND MY

SHIELD.

MY HEART TRUSTS IN HIM,

AND HE HELPS ME."

GOD BLESS YOU.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
