Efrem: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M MARK MARTIN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

UNVEILED A $6 TRILLION TAX

CUT PLAN THAT IS ALREADY

DRAWING FIRE FROM

DEMOCRATS.

DALE HURD HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAS BEGUN THE FIGHT

TO DELIVER ON ONE OF HIS

KEY CAMPAIGN PROMISES: TO

CUT TAXES AND REFORM THE

TAX CODE.

President Trump:

THESE TAX CUTS ARE

SIGNIFICANT.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN TAX

CUTS LIKE WHAT WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

Reporter: THE BASICS

OF THE PLAN INCLUDE

CUTTING THE NUMBER OF TAX

RATES FOR INDIVIDUALS FROM

7 TO 3, 12, 25, AND 35%,

ALONG WITH A SURCHARGE FOR

THE VERY WEALTHY.

CUTTING THE TAX RATE FOR

BUSINESSES FROM 35% TO

20%, A NUMBER THE

PRESIDENT SAYS HE WON'T

BUDGE ON, NEARLY DOUBLING

THE STANDARD EXEMPTION TO

$12,000 FOR SINGLES, AND

$24,000 FOR COUPLES, AND

KEEPING THE DEDUCTIONS FOR

CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS

AND MORTGAGES, BUT GETTING

RID OF THE STATE AND LOCAL

TAXES, LIKE IN NEW YORK

AND CALIFORNIA, AND

ELIMINATING THE ESTATE

TAX.

President Trump: OUR

FRAMEWORK INCLUDES OR

EXCLUSIVE COMMITMENT THAT

TAX REFORM WILL PROTECT

LOW INCOME AND MIDDLE

INCOME HOUSEHOLDS, AND NOT

THE WEALTHY AND

WELL-CONNECTED.

IT IS NOT GOOD FOR ME,

BELIEVE ME.

Reporter: BUT

DEMOCRATS DISAGREED,

CALLING THE PLAN A BIG WIN

FALL FOR THE RICH.

IT IS A FRAMEWORK THAT

GIVES AWAY THE STORE TO

THE WEALTHIEST, WHILE

STICKING THE MIDDLE CLASS.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS SAY

IT IS A ONCE IN A

GENERATION OPPORTUNITY.

THE PRESIDENT CALLS THE

CURRENT TAX SYSTEM A RELIC

AND A COLOSSAL BARRIER

STANDING IN THE WAY OF THE

NATION'S ECONOMIC

COMEBACK.

TAX REFORM WOULD REQUIRE A

BIPARTISAN SUPPORT ON

CAPITOL HILL.

THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO

REACH OUT ACROSS THE

AISLE.

President Trump:

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS

IN CONGRESS SHOULD COME

TOGETHER, FINALLY, TO

DELIVER THIS GIANT WIN FOR

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND

BEGIN MIDDLE-CLASS

MIRACLES.

Reporter: AND SOME

DEMOCRATS MAY GO ALONG,

BUT A DEAL WILL BE TOUGH,

AND REPUBLICANS HAVE MANY

DISAGREEMENTS AMONG

THEMSELVES AS WELL.

TAX REFORM IS GOING TO

MAKE HEALTH CARE LOOK LIKE

A PIECE OF CAKE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT AND THE

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

ARE HOPING THEY CAN MAKE

THE TAX SYSTEM MUCH

SIMPLER FOR MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS, MEANING YOUR

OWN TAX FORMS COULD BE

MUCH EASIER TO FILL OUT.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Mark: THE

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN

PUERTO RICO GROWS MORE

DIRE BY THE DAY.

HURRICANE MARIA SLAMMED

INTO THE ISLAND ONE WEEK

AGO, BUT MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS THERE STILL HAVE

NO POWER, NO FOOD, NO FOOD

OR WATER, AND NO HOPE THAT

HELP IS COMING.

THE SUPPLIES THAT MANY

NEED MOST ARE NOT

NECESSARILY STUCK ON THE

U.S. MAINLAND.

MUCH OF THEM ARE STRANDED

IN THE COUNTRY'S MAIN

PORT, DUE TO A SHORTAGE OF

DELIVERY VEHICLES.

THIS IS THE SINGLE

BIGGEST MAJOR CATASTROPHE

IN THE HISTORY OF PUERTO

RICO.

IT HAS BEEN HELL,

ABSOLUTE HELL.

Mark: MEANWHILE,

TRAILERS FULL OF SUPPLIES

ARE STILL SITTING ON HOLD

IN THE U.S., UNABLE TO BE

SHIPPED TO PUERTO RICO

BECAUSE OF A FOREIGN LAW.

A WAIVER WAS GRANTED TO

KEEP THIS FROM BEING AN

ISSUE FOR AREAS AFFECTED

BY HURRICANE IRM HURRICANE IRMA AND

HARVEY.

THIS IS WEEK THE HOUSE

REPUBLICAN MEMBERS

ANNOUNCED PLANS TO BRING A

BILL TO THE FLOOR THAT

BANS ABORTION AFTER 20

WEEKS OF PRESIDENCY.

Reporter: THERE ARE

CURRENTLY SEVEN COUNTRIES

IN THE WORLD THAT ALLOW

FOR ABORTION AFTER FIVE

MONTHS OF PREGNANCY,

INCLUDING AMERICA, NORTH

KOREA, AND CHINA.

PRO-LIFE LAWMAKERS HOPE TO

TAKE AMERICA OUT OF THAT

GROUP THROUGH THE "PAIN

CAPABLE UNBORN CHILD

PROTECTION ACT."

> WHAT IS THE

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE

FIVE-MONTH LIMIT?

WHAT YOU FIND WITH FIVE

MONTHS IS BABIES CAN FEEL

PAIN, THEY HAVE A

HEARTBEAT.

THEIR EARS, THEIR NOSE,

THEIR EYES...

Reporter: KEVIN

McCARTHY ANNOUNCED PLANS

FOR THE VOTE, ALONGSIDE

5-YEAR-OLD MICAH

PICKERING, A HEALTHY BOY

BORN AT JUST 20 WEEKS.

YOU SEE IT SURVEY AFTER

SURVEY, 64% OF AMERICANS

SUPPORT THIS.

TO GO IN AND HAVE AN

ABORTION AFTER THIS AMOUNT

OF TIME, THE BABY FEELS

THAT PAIN.

THAT BABY CAN LIVE, AND WE

WANT TO PROTECT THEM.

Reporter: THE BILL

FIRST PASSED THE HOUSE IN

2015 BUT FAILED IN THE

SENATE.

PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES HOPE TO

GAIN BIPARTISAN SUPPORT TO

HELP REACH THE 60-VET

THRESHOLD IN THE SENATE,

GIVEN STRONG PUBLIC

OPINION AGAINST ABORTIONS

AFTER FIVE MONTHS OF

PREGNANCY.

SUSAN B. ANTHONY TELLS CBN

NEWS SENATORS NEED TO

THINK HOW THEIR VOTES

COULD AFFECT THE OUTCOME

OF THEIR 2018 COMPAIGNS.

WE HAVE IN MOST OF

THOSE STATES PEOPLE GOING

TO DOOR TO DOOR, SAYING,

DO YOU KNOW YOUR SENATOR

VOTED AGAINST THIS BILL?

DOES THAT AFFECT YOUR 2018

VOTE?

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP PROMISES THAT IF THE

BILL MAKES IT TO HIS DESK,

HE WILL SIGN IT INTO LAW.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Mark: NEXT UP, WE

TAKE YOU TO THE FRONT

LINES IN THE BATTLE

AGAINST ISIS.

MEET THE BAND OF BROTHERS

WHO ARE SAVING LIVES ONE

PERSON AT A TIME.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

THE LONG BATTLE TO

RECAPTURE MOSUL FROM THE

DEADLY TERRORISTS OF ISIS

IS OVER.

AND THROUGHOUT THAT BLOODY

FIGHT, ONE MINISTRY PUT

ITSELF ON THE FRONT LINES

TO PROVIDE MEDICAL RELIEF,

HUMANITARIAN AID, AND THE

GOSPEL.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

ONE BRAVE RESCUE BY THIS

MINISTRY CAPTURED THE

HEARTS OF MILLIONS.

Chris: IT'S A SPRINT

BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH

THAT HAS GONE VIRAL.

12 SECONDS THAT SHOWED

TRUE SACRIFICE TO A WORLD

SEARCHING FOR HOPE, NOW

SEEN AND SHARED BY

MILLIONS.

DAVID EUBANK OF THE FREE

BURMA RANGERS TOLD CBN

NEWS WHY HE RISKED HIS OWN

LIFE TO SAVE THIS

6-YEAR-OLD IRAQI GIRL.

FOR LOVE.

I WOULD WANT SOMEONE TO

SAVE MY KID.

WHENEVER YOUR TERRIFIED,

ASK, AM I SUPPOSED TO DO

THIS -- ASK GOD.

IF HE SAYS DO IT, THEN ASK

FOR LOVE.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE REALLY

SCARED, YOU NEED LOVE.

LOVE IS WHAT MAKES YOU

REALLY BRAVE.

AND GOD GAVE ME ENOUGH OF

THAT TO RUN ACROSS, GRAB

THE GIRL.

Chris: AND THAT'S NOT

THE ONLY HEROICS SHOWN BY

HE AND HIS TEAM.

WE'RE HERE TO RESCUE

THIS LITTLE GIRL.

WE'RE SURROUNDED BY THEM.

LORD JESUS, HELP US GET

HER OUT.

AMEN.

Chris: SHE MADE IT,

TOO.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

OKAY.

SHE'S ALIVE!

JESUS, HE SAVED ME.

I WANT TO BE WITH YOU,

HELPING OTHERS.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE FREE

BURMA RANGERS IS ABOUT.

Chris: HE STARTED HIS

FRONT-LINE MINISTRY 20

YEARS AGO IN BURMA.

THREE YEARS AGO, THEY

ANSWERED THE CALL TO COME

TO IRAQ, SYRIA, AND

KURDISTAN.

OUR MISSION IS TO GIVE

HELP, MEDICAL HELP, AND

HOPE, AND REMINDING PEOPLE

THEY'RE NOT FORGOTTEN.

AND LOVE.

SAYING WE LOVE YOU AND GOD

LOVES YOU, AND YOU CAN

CALL ON HIS NAME.

GOD SENT JESUS TO SAVE US.

AND YOU CAN CALL ON HIM

MANY TIMES.

Chris: HIS TEAM

SHOWED THAT LOVE TO THE

PEOPLE IN IRAQ DURING THE

FIGHT TO FREE THE CITY

FROM ISIS.

AS ISLAMIC STATE FIGHTERS

FIRED AT PEOPLE TRYING TO

ESCAPE, THE FREE BURMA

RANGERS RUSHED INTO THE

KILLING ZONE.

EUBANK TRIED TO SAVE THIS

WOUNDED MUSLIM WOMAN, BUT

SHE DIED.

YET IN THE MIDST OF THIS

CARNAGE, EUBANK'S WIFE,

KAREN, AND THEIR THREE

CHILDREN, BRING FUN,

GAMES, AND THE GOSPEL.

KAREN EXPLAINS IT BEGAN

BACK IN BURMA TO HELP

NEIGHBORS IN TROUBLE.

IT WAS VERY NATURAL TO

GO TO PEOPLE THAT YOU

KNEW, CHURCHES THAT YOU

KNEW, VILLAGES THAT YOU

KNEW, AND AS THOSE

VILLAGES WERE IN CONFLICT,

IT WAS STILL NATURAL

BECAUSE YOU WANT TO HELP

PEOPLE YOU LOVE.

SO WE WOULD STAY WITH THE

FAMILIES THERE.

AND AS FIGHTING INCREASED

ON THE FRONT LINE, WE

WOULD STILL STAY WITH THE

FAMILIES.

Reporter: NOW THEIR

CHILDREN SAY IT IS NATURAL

TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF

IRAQ.

WE WOULDN'T BE THERE IF

IT WASN'T FOR GOD.

WE FEEL VERY BLESSED TO

HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY.

NOT VERY MANY PEOPLE GET

TO GO TO MOSUL AND GET TO

HELP THERE, IN THAT AREA.

OF COURSE, THERE IS ALWAYS

THE DANGER OF BEING SHOT,

AND SO WE ALSO FEEL

BLESSED THAT HE HAS

PROTECTED US THROUGH ALL

OF THIS AND WE'RE ALL

STILL ALIVE.

I TOLD THEM THEY'RE THE

EPITOME OF HIGH-RISK

MISSION WORK BECAUSE

THEY'RE PROVIDING MEDICAL

TREATMENT, HOPE, LOVE,

PRAYING WITH PEOPLE,

BEARING THEIR BURDENS, AND

IT IS A LOVING SACRIFICE.

IT'S A GREAT EXAMPLE FOR

BEING A LIGHT IN A VERY

DARK PLACE.

Chris: CBN NEWS

JOINED EUBANK ON THE FRONT

LINES AND FOUND A MAN OF

CONSTANT PRAYER.

WE CAN'T TAKE CARE OF

EVERYBODY, BUT YOU CAN

TAKE CARE OF THE PERSON IN

FRONT OF YOU.

Chris: AND ARE THESE

SOME OF THE KIDS YOU TAKE

CARE OF?

YES, THEY'VE BEEN OUT

HERE FOR THREE DAYS.

I'M GOING TO PRAY REAL

QUICK.

LORD JESUS, HELP THESE

PEOPLE GO TO A SAFE PLACE

AND A GOOD PLACE TONIGHT.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Chris: REMEMBER THE

LITTLE IRAQI GIRL HE

SAVED?

KAREN FOUND A "SUPERBOOK"

VIDEO TO SHARE WITH THE

GIRL.

"SUPERBOOK" HAS BEEN A

BIG BLESSING IN MY

MINISTRY AS WITH THE KIDS.

IT SAYS IN THAT INDIGENOUS

LANGUAGE THINGS I CAN'T

SAY IN FULL, AND THE

BEAUTIFUL ANIMATION GOES A

LONG WAY IN PLACES WHERE

THERE IS NO MEDIA.

SO THANK YOU, "SUPERBOOK"

TEAM, FOR LETTING US SHARE

THAT IN VERY RESTRICTED

FOREIGN AREAS.

WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO SHOW

"SUPERBOOK" IN CORRIN

LANGUAGE, IN BURMESE, IN

ARABIC, TO FRONT LINE

COMMUNITIES, AND THAT IS A

BIT OF ENCOURAGEMENT AS

WELL AS NORMAL LIFE.

WE GET TO WATCH A VIDEO

AND WE GET TO WATCH FUN

STORIES OF GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS.

SO "SUPERBOOK" IS A BIG

BLESSING.

Chris: NOW ON A

SPEAKING TOUR IN THE

STATES, EUBANK BRINGS A

MESSAGE BACK TO AMERICA.

WITHOUT E-MAILS THAT

SAID BE B BOLD, WITHOUT

SCRIPTURE THAT PEOPLE

THOUGHT THEY WOULD

SUPPOSED TO GIVE US --

THOSE ALL CAME BACK TO ME:

NO GREATER LOVE HAVE MAN

THAN TO LAY DOWN HIS LIFE

FOR HIS FRIENDS.

THANK YOU, CHURCH, FOR

PRAYING FOR US, AND

EVERYWHERE YOU PRAY AND

DO.

IT MAKES AN ETERNAL

DIFFERENCE.

WHERE DOES GOD WANT ME?

HOW AM I TO PRAY?

Mark: NOW WE TAKE YOU

TO IRBIL, IRAQ, WHERE

CHRIS MITCHELL IS ON THE

GROUND COVERING THE

KURDISH REFERENDUM FOR

INDEPENDENCE AND THE FIGHT

AGAINST ISIS.

CHRIS, HOW IMPORTANT IS

THIS FOR THE KURDS, AND

WHAT IMPACT COULD THIS

HAVE ON THE REGION?

Chris: THIS

REFERENDUM, ESPECIALLY FOR

THE KURDISH PEOPLE, WAS

VERY IMPORTANT.

THIS WAS THE FIRST

OFFICIAL REFERENDUM THEY

EVER HAD TO HAVE THEIR

FREE AND INDEPENDENT

KURDISTAN.

FOR THE REGION, IT IS

GOING TO HAVE A BIG IMPACT

BECAUSE THE NATIONS

SURROUNDING KURDISTAN,

TURKEY, IRAN, SYRIA, AND

THE BAGHDAD GOVERNMENT,

ALL OPPOSED IT.

SO IT COULD UPSET THE

DELICATE BALANCE HERE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

THERE ARE TALKS IT COULD

LEAD TO CONFLICT BETWEEN

THE BAGHDAD GOVERNMENT AND

WHAT IS CALLED THE KURDISH

REGIONAL GOVERNMENT.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR

THIS REGION.

Mark: AND YOU'VE ALSO

MET WITH CHRISTIANS IN THE

AREA.

WHAT IS THERE SITUATION,

AND WHAT ARE THEY TELLING

YOU ABOUT THEIR FUTURE?

Chris: THE SITUATION

FOR CHRISTIANS IN THIS

AREA REMAINS STATE.

A FEW YEARS AGO, WHEN ISIS

CAME INTO THIS AREA, TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

LITERALLY FLED FOR THEIR

LIFE.

THERE IS A REFUGEE CAMP

WHERE LITERALLY THOUSANDS

OF CHRISTIANS REMAIN THREE

YEARS AFTER ISIS CAME IN

AND TOOK OVER TOWNS LIKE

MOSUL, QARAQOSH AND OTHER

AREAS.

THEY DON'T HAVE A PLACE TO

GO BACK TO THEIR HOMES

RIGHT NOW.

MANY TIMES THEY CAN'T

IMMIGRATE TO OTHER

COUNTRIES.

SO THEY'RE REALLY CAUGHT

IN THE MIDDLE.

Mark: CHRIS, YOU ALSO

FOLLOWED DAVE EUBANK, AND

TELL US WHAT THAT

EXPERIENCE WAS LIKE?

Chris: WE HAD THE

OPPORTUNITY TO BE WITH HIM

IN SINJAR, AND ON THE

FRONT LINES IN THE BATTLE

WITH ISIS.

BEFORE I MET DAVE,

SOMEBODY TOLD ME HE IS THE

GUY HE HAS PRAYED MORE

OFTEN THAN ANY OTHER

PERSON, AND I FOUND THAT

TO BE TRUE.

DAVE SAYS, LET'S PRAY, AND

HE PRAYS WHATEVER THE

SITUATION MIGHT BE

THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

I'M SURE THAT IS WHY HE

HAS SURVIVED SO LONG.

HE IS RIGHT THERE ON THE

FRONT LINES.

AS YOU HAVE SEEN, HE

RESCUED THAT 6-YEAR-OLD

IRAQI GIRL, RIGHT ON THE

FRONT LINES WITH ISIS.

HE COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED,

NOT ONLY THAT TIME, BUT

MANY OTHER TIMES.

AND BECAUSE HE PRAYS,

THAT'S WHY I BELIEVE HE

SURVIVES.

AND HE SPREADS THE GOOD

NEWS OF JESUS WHEREVER HE

GOES.

Mark: EUBANK TALKED

ABOUT THE POWER OF PRAYER

WHEN HE IS ON THE FRONT

LINES.

HOW CAN CHRISTIANS HERE

PRAY FOR HIM AND HIS TEAM?

Chris: IT IS

IMPORTANT TO PRAY NOT ONLY

FOR DAVE AND HIS TEAM, BUT

FOR ALL OF THE CHRISTIANS

IN THIS AREA THAT HAVE

BEEN DISPLACED BECAUSE OF

ISIS.

AND PRAY FOR THE SITUATION

HERE IN THE REGION.

WE TALKED TO A NORWEGIAN

PASTOR, AND HE SAID IT IS

NOT ONLY IMPORTANT TO PRAY

FOR INDIVIDUALS LIKE DAVE

AND HIS TEAM, BUT ALSO FOR

THE GEOPOLITICS THAT ARE

GOING ON.

PRAYER DOES MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE HISTORY

OF NATIONS.

Mark: CHRIS MITCHELL,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

TIME AND YOUR INSIGHTS.

> STAY WITH US; MUCH

MORE OF CBN "NEWSWATCH" IS

Mark: NEW NUMBERS

SHOW NFL RATINGS ARE DOWN

10% COMPARED TO LAST YEAR.

THE BIG QUESTION: ARE

PEOPLE TUNING OUT BECAUSE

THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTIVE OF

THE POLITICAL MESSAGES

THAT THE ATHLETES WHO

KNEELED DURING THE

NATIONAL ANTHEM ARE

MAKING?

JOINING ME IS SEAN BROWN.

THANK YOU.

Mark: DO YOU THINK

THE PROTESTS ARE GOING TO

HAVE A LASTING IMPACT ON

THE NFL VIEWER NUMBERS?

LASTING IMPACT, I'M NOT

SURE.

THEY ARE HAVING AN IMPACT

RIGHT NOW, OBVIOUSLY.

THE ANSWER IS REALLY

TWO-FOLD: ONE BEING FROM

THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE NFL

AND THE PLAYERS, AND THEN,

TWO, THE NETWORKS.

FROM THE PLAYERS'

PERSPECTIVE AT THE END OF

THE DAY, IF THIS BECOMES A

DISTRACTION, THEY HAVE A

CHOICE TO MAKE: ARE THEY

GOING TO CONTINUE TO PLAY

FOOTBALL, OR ARE THEY

GOING TO ALLOW THIS TO

CONTINUE TO BECOME A

DISTRACTION.

I DON'T SEE THAT BEING A

DISTRACTION, BUT FROM A TV

PERSPECTIVE, FROM THE

NETWORKS, IF THEY CONTINUE

TO LOSE MONEY, THEY MAY

CONSIDER NOT SHOWING THAT

PART OF THE GAME LIKE THEY

USED TO.

THEY RECENTLY JUST STARTED

SHOWING THAT PART OF THE

GAME OBVIOUSLY BECAUSE

PEOPLE WERE INTERESTED.

BUT IF THEY STOP SHOWING

THAT PART OF THE GAME, I

BELIEVE PEOPLE WILL START

WATCHING AGAIN.

Mark: SHOW SHOULD

CHRISTIANS SPON RESPOND TO

THIS?

I CAN USE MYSELF AS AN

EXAMPLE.

MY FATHER IS RETIRED NAVY.

THIS STARTED WITH COLIN

KAEPERNICK.

AND WHEN I SAW THAT, I WAS

VERY UPSET.

MY FATHER FOUGHT IN DESERT

STORM.

I LITERALLY WORE A UNITED

NATIONS NAVY MEDALLION FOR

LIKE SIX MONTHS UNTIL HE

RETURNED HOME.

WHEN I SAW THAT, I WAS

VERY UPSET.

BUT THEN I HAD TO CHECK

MYSELF BECAUSE I WAS MORE

UPSET OVER THE FACT THAT

HE WAS KNEELING FOR THE

FLAG RATHER THAN WHY HE

WAS KNEELING.

AND THEN IT SHOWED ME THAT

I REALLY NEED TO TAKE TIME

TO UNDERSTAND HIS

PERSPECTIVE.

THE BIBLE TELLS US IN

PROVERBS 2: 6 -- IT SAYS,

THE LORD GIVES WISDOM, AND

FROM HIS MOUTH COMES

KNOWLEDGE AND

UNDERSTANDING.

WISDOM IS THE SUM OF

KNOWLEDGE PLUS

UNDERSTANDING.

AND THE BIBLE TELLS US

ALSO TO BE QUICK TO LISTEN

AND SLOW TO SPEAK SO WE

CAN RESPOND WITH WISDOM.

I THINK IT IS VERY

IMPORTANT FOR US AS

BELIEVERS TO NOT BE QUICK

TO ANGER, TO TAKE TIME TO

REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT IS

ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

I THINK THIS HAS PERHAPS

BECOME SOMEWHAT OF A SMOKE

SCREEN.

YES, IT IS IMPORTANT TO

STAND FOR THE FLAG BECAUSE

THAT FLAG REPRESENTS HOPE.

BUT I WOULD RATHER SPEND

TIME WHY ARE THESE MEN

REALLY PROTESTING?

WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT

TO THEM, AND LET ME TRY TO

UNDERSTAND THAT.

Mark: EVEN IF WE

DON'T AGREE WITH THE WAY

THEY'RE MAKING A

STATEMENT, HOW CAN WE GET

THAT KNOWLEDGE?

HOW CAN WE EDUCATE

OURSELVES TO UNDERSTAND

BETTER WHAT THEY'RE TRYING

TO DO?

LISTEN.

THE PLAYERS HAVE CLEARLY

STATED THIS IS NOT ABOUT

THE FLAG.

IT IS ABOUT SOCIAL

INJUSTICE IN THE COUNTRY.

AND THESE ARE GLADIATORS.

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES, IF

THEY DON'T LIKE SOMETHING,

THEY WILL TELL YOU.

IF THEY ARE CLEARLY SAYING

THIS IS NOT ABOUT THIS,

BUT IT IS ABOUT THIS.

AND THEY HAVE CLEARLY

STATED THIS IS ABOUT

SOCIAL INJUSTICE, AND IT'S

NOT ABOUT THE FLAG.

WHETHER OR NOT WE AGREE ON

THE WAY THEY'RE

PROTESTING -- BECAUSE IT

IS A FREE COUNTRY -- FOR

ONE, I WOULD BE STANDING.

I CAN'T BRING MYSELF TO

KNEEL, BUT I'M NOT GOING

TO BE MAD AT MY BROTHER

BECAUSE THAT IS HIS OWN

CONVICTION, AND HE HAS

CHOSEN TO DO IT IN THAT

MANNER.

WE NEED TO TRY TO

UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS.

SOMEONE TOLD ME E I ME IT IS LIKE

A FAKE HANDOFF.

THE DEFENSE IS CHASING THE

GUY WITHOUT THE BALL,

WITHOUT THE THING THAT

REALLY MATTERS.

WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE

ISSUE.

Mark: SEAN BROWN,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

TIME.

THANK YOU.

Mark: WE WANT TO HEAR

WHAT YOU THINK.

WE HAVE A POLL ON CBN

NEWS' Facebook PAGE.

BE SURE TO CHECK IT OUT.

Mark: NEARLY 40 YEARS

AFTER HIS DEATH, MOVIE

STAR STEVE McQUEEN IS

STILL OFTEN REFERRED TO AS

THE KING OF COOL.

TONIGHT THE DOCUMENTARY,

"STEVSTEVE McQUEEN, AN

AMERICAN IDOL," SHARES THE

STORY OF HOW THE KING OF

COOL MET THE KING OF

KINGS.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE

STEVE HAD PUT HIS BIBLE,

BUT HE HAD JUST SHARED

WITH BILLY THAT SH HE WISHED

HE HAD A BIBLE.

AND WITHOUT ANY

HESITATION, BILLY SAID,

I'LL GIVE YOU MINE.

Efrem: THE MAN WHO

LED ACTING LEGEND STEVE

McQUEEN TO CHRIST,

LEONARD DEWIT, SHARES THE

STORY OF McQUEEN'S

MEETING WITH BILLY GRAHAM

IN THIS DOCUMENTARY:

"STEVE McQUEEN, AN

AMERICAN ICON."

IT WAS A BIBLE THAT

McQUEEN CLEARLY USED

BECAUSE I SAW UNDER

LININGS.

Efrem: SHARING

STEVE'S STORY ON FILM HAS

BEEN A YEAR-LONG PROJECT

FOR ITS PRODUCER, PASTOR

GREG LAURIE.

HE WAS A UNIQUE

INDIVIDUAL, AND NOW WE

CALL HIM THE KING OF COOL.

AND I THINK THE COOLEST

THING HE EVER DID WAS BE

MAN ENOUGH TO ADMIT HE

NEEDED GOD.

THAT WAS COOL IN MY BOOK.

Efrem: THE FILM

FOLLOWS McQUEEN'S FAITH

JOURNEY AND EVEN INCLUDES

UNHEARD PERSONAL AUDIO

RECORDINGS HE MADE JUST

WEEKS BEFORE DYING.

SOME OF THEM, I WAS

SITTING THERE.

BUT IT HAS BEEN SO LONG

AGO.

THIS IS THE PART OF THE

MOVIE THAT I HAVE TO WALK

OUT ON BECAUSE IT JUST

BRINGS BACK WAY TOO MANY

BAD MEMORIES FOR ME.

BUT I THINK IT IS SUCH AN

IMPORTANT PART TO THE

MOVIE.

AND IT'S STEVE'S WORDS.

IT IS RIGHT OUT OF HIS

MOUTH.

Efrem: THE MOVIE IS

AN EMOTIONAL JOURNEY FOR

STEVE'S WIDOW, BARBARA

MINTY McQUEEN.

WE WOULD WERE BUILDING

A HOME.

WE HAD OUR ROCKING CHAIRS

PICKED OUT.

OH, BOY, I'M GOING TO

START BALLING.

Efrem: YOU'RE FINE.

I WANTED A LIFE WITH

HIM.

Efrem: THIS IS HER

CHANCE TO SHARE THAT

SOFTER SIDE OF THE

HOLLYWOOD BADBOY'S LIFE

WITH THE REST OF THE

WORLD.

JOHN IRWIN DIRECTS THE

FILM.

THE CANCER CAME ON VERY

SUDDENLY.

WHEN HE DISCOVERED IT, HE

WAS ONLY GIVEN MONTHS TO

LIVE.

THIS IS ABOUT SIX MONTHS

AFTER HE CAME TO CHRIST.

SO EVERYTHING WAS ABOUT

TRYING TO FIGHT THIS

CANCER.

AND IT WAS A BATTLE HE

UNFORTUNATELY LOST.

BUT IN HIS FINAL

INTERVIEW, YOU HEAR HIM

CLAIM HIS FAITH.

YOU HEAR THE CONVICTION IN

HIS VOICE.

AND, AGAIN, IT KIND OF

BLOWS MY MIND THAT THE

BIGGEST MOVIE STAR IN THE

WORLD AT THE TIME, TAKING

THIS SPIRITUAL JOURNEY AND

COMING TO FAITH -- HOW HAS

THIS NOT BEEN DONE AND

DONE AGAIN.

AS A FILM-MAKER, THAT IS A

VERY SPECIAL THING, TO

UNEARTH AN UNTOLD STORY

ABOUT AN AMERICAN ICON.

Efrem: EFREM GRAHAM,

CBN NEWS, NEW YORK.

Mark: THE FILM IS IN

THEATERS TONIGHT, AND

BECAUSE OF THE HIGH DEMAND

FOR TICKETS, IT WILL

RETURN TO CINEMAS

NATIONWIDE FOR ENCORE

SCREENINGS ON

OCTOBER 10th AND 19th.

> THAT'S IT FOR NOW ON

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR WATCHING.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.
