> COMING UP.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS A

BELIEVER, AND

SO AM I.

PART TWO OF AN EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW

WITH VICE-PRESIDENT MIKE

PENCE.

ARE YOU GOING TO LET HER

DO THAT TO

YOU?

PLUS, A TEENAGE DARE TURNS

DEADLY.

THE INITIAL SHOCK.

I NEVER THOUGHT HE MADE

IT.

THE UNRELENTING GUILTY AND

FINALLY

SETTING FREE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB".

Pat: IT'S ANOTHER WEEK AND

WELCOME

TO THE "700 CLUB".

WE ARE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

WE HAVE A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU

TODAY AND

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS ANY OF

IT.

IT LOOKS LIKE CONGRESS IS

ABOUT TO

GIVE A BIG PRESENT THAT

PRESIDENT

TRUMP PROMISED. IT'S A MAJOR

TAX CODE

THAT HASN'T BEEN MADE IN

DECADES. THEY

ARE GETTING TOGETHER ON A

JOINT

COMMITTEE TO GET THE

PRESIDENT TO SIGN

BY THE END OF THE YEAR. IT'S

A BIG BIG

DEAL.

Terry: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO

ALL OF US.

PLUS THE NEW REVELATION AS

WELL.

IT'S NOT SURE WHERE THE

COUNCIL IS

GOING WITH MICHAEL FLYNN'S

GUILTY PLEA

FOR LYING ABOUT RUSSIA.

THAT DOES NOT TO ME

INDICATE THAT

SOMETHING ELSE IS THERE.

THEY ARE CALLING THIS

POLITICALLY

MOTIVATED AND POINTING TO

ANTI-TRUMP

MESSAGES FROM THE REGIME AND

REMOVING

FROM THE POSITION BUT THE

CREDIBLITY

IS IN --

IT'S AN OBSTRUCTION.

THAT IT'S COMING FROM THE

PRESIDENT'S TWEET TO JAMES

COMEY.

HE SAYS, I NEVER ASKED COMEY

TO COVER

FLYNN.

AND ANY CONNECTION TO

FLYNN.

BUT HE SAYS HE ACTUALLY

WROTE THE

TWEET AND WROTE IT WRONG. ALL

ON

CAPITOL HILL ARE ON A

DIFFERENT

SUBJECT. THE SENATE REFORM

NOW THAT

THEY HAVE PASSED BOTH TAX

MEASURES AND

AGREEING ON ONE FINAL DEAL.

REPUBLICANS ARE CONFIDENT

THEY CAN

MAKE IT HAPPEN AND TRUMP HAS

SUGGESTED

HE MIGHT SETTLE FOR A HIGHER

BUSINESS

TAX RATE, 22% INSTEAD OF 20%.

THE PRESIDENT SEEMS TO BE

UNCONCERNED ABOUT THE COUNCIL

INVESTIGATION. AT THE SAME

TIME HE

APPEARS TO BE ON THE VERGE OF

HIS

BIGGEST LEGISLATIVE

ACCOMPLISHMENT

MADE ONE THAT HAS NEVER BEEN

SEEN

BEFORE THE ECONOMY.

Pat: DAVID BRODY IS WITH US

NOW.

THERE WAS AN FBI AGENT WHO

APPARENTLY

WAS HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH A

FELLOW FBI

LADY AND HE WAS TWEETING SOME

RATHER

NASTY THINGS ABOUT THE

PRESIDENT. THEY

FIRED HIM AND HE WAS ON THE

TEAM.

WOULD YOU TELL US WHAT YOU

KNOW ABOUT

THAT?

WELL, THOSE ARE

ANTI-INTERIM TEXT

THAT WERE POINTED OUT THERE,

BUT IF

YOU LOOK WHEN ROBERT MOHLER

WERE

BROUGHT INTO THE TEAM THEY

WERE

DONATING TO THE PARTY AND THE

HILLARY

CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND HAVING

TIES TO

HILLARY CLINTON, AND ALSO

THOSE

LAWYERS SOMETIMES WORKED ON

SOME OF

THOSE PROJECTS INVOLVING

HILLARY

CLINTON. IF YOU PUT THAT

TOGETHER,

DONALD TRUMP CALLED IT A

WITCH HUNT

AND HE IS STICKING BY IT AND

WE KNOW

ABOUT THE ABC REPORTS THAT

INVESTIGATOR REPORTER WAS

SUSPENDED

FOR.

YOU PUT ALL THAT TOGETHER AND

HERE IS

DONALD TRUMP BASICALLY SAYING

TO HIS

BASE, THAT DEPLORABLE BASE

THAT IT'S A

WITCH HUNT AND WE WILL SEE.

BY FAR NO

SMOKING GUN AT THIS TIME.

YOU WILL SEE THAT.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT LYING AND

LYING

ABOUT WHAT? THAT THERE ISN'T

ANY

COLLUSION OR ANY INVOLVEMENT

WITH THE

RUSSIA PROSECUTION.

WELL, LYING THAT HE DID

MEET WITH

THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR, BUT

AFTER

THAT, WHAT DO THEY HAVE

EXACTLY AND

THE QUESTION BECOMES HOW MUCH

DOES THE

WHITE HOUSE HAVE ABOUT WHAT

FLYNN IS

GOAL TO TELL. THERE IS NO

SUBSTANCE AT

ALL FROM WHITE HOUSE SOURCES

THAT THEY

BELIEVE FLYNN HAS ANY OF

THESE

SO-CALLED "GOODS" TO DELIVER

ABOUT THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES. THERE

IS NOT MUCH THAT FLYNN HAS

THAT WOULD

BE THAT SMOKING GUN, PAT.

Pat: LET'S SWITCH TO TAXES

WHICH IS

A BIG DEAL FOR ALL OF US, ARE

THERE

GOING TO BE ANY PROBLEMS AS

THEY COME

TO THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE.

WE THINK THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY WILL

COME TO FIGURE THIS OUT AND

COME TO AN

AGREEMENT. BOTTOM LINE IS

THEY WILL

GET IT DONE. THE HOUSE SENATE

SOURCE

THAT I'M TALKING TO THAT IT

WILL

HAPPEN NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

HOWEVER, THAT CORPORATE TAX

RATE COULD

INDEED JUMP TO 22% RATHER

THAN 20%

THAT DONALD TRUMP WANTED.

THERE ARE

PROBABLY A FEW MORE TAX

BREAKS AND

THAT WILL INCREASE THE

REVENUE AND THE

WAY TO INCREASE THE REVENUE

IS TO

INCREASE THE TAX.

ALSO WE HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE

JOHNSON

-- IT IS IN THE HOUSE BILL,

IT'S NOT

IN THE SENATE BILL. I'M JUST

TALKING

TO A SENATE SOURCE THAT IT'S

A 50/50

CHANCE WHETHER IT WILL ALLOW

THE

CHURCHES AND OTHER

NON-PROFITS TO

SPEAK BOLDLY FROM THE PULPIT

AS WE

TALKED ABOUT AND NOT HAVE A

PROBLEM

FROM THE IRS.

RIGHT NOW THAT LANGUAGE IS

50/50 AT

BEST TO GET IN THE FINAL

BILL.

Pat: ALL RIGHT, IT LOOKS

LIKE, AND

THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE TALKING

ABOUT.

SO THERE IS NO REAL

CONTENTIOUS POINT

IN THE CONFERENCE IS WHAT YOU

ARE

SEEING, IS THAT WHAT I'M

HEARING?

THERE IS A COUPLE OF

THINGS.

CONTENTIOUS, IT'S ALL

RELATIVE AT THIS

POINT, PAT BECAUSE IT'S GOING

TO PASS.

THERE IS NOTHING MAJOR IN

THERE

TINKERING WITH THE BILL.

THE TAX RATE STARTS THIS YEAR

AND THAT

SENATE BILL OF 25-30% STARTS

IN 19, A

YEAR LATER. THEY ARE GOING TO

HAVE TO

FIGURE THAT OUT. BEYOND THAT,

THIS IS

THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE WE'VE

HEARD

ABOUT, THE OBAMACARE MANDATE.

THAT IS GOING TO BE A POINT

OF

CONTENTION TOO.

Pat: IT SEEMS TO ME IF THEY

WANT TO

GET MAXIMUM IMPACT, THEY HAVE

TO GET

THE TAX CREDITS RIGHT NOW

BECAUSE IT

WILL NOT HAVE THE MERE IMPACT

AS IF

THEY BROUGHT IT IN NOW.

DO YOU THINK THEY WILL DO

THAT?

THAT'S A GREAT POINT, PAT.

BECAUSE

9 MONTHS AGO OR SO WHEN WE

WERE HAVING

THIS DISCUSSION ABOUT

OBAMACARE AND

THE TAX REFORM, SOME OF MY

SOURCES

WERE TELLING ME THAT IF THEY

DON'T GET

THESE TAX CUTS DONE BY

NOVEMBER AT THE

VERY LATEST, THANKSGIVING,

THEY ARE

NOT GOING TO HAVE ENOUGH TIME

TO GET

THIS THING MOVING IN TIME FOR

THE

MIDTERM ELECTIONS AND THAT

ECONOMIC

MOJO IF YOU WILL HUMMING

ALONG. I

THINK THERE IS THIS CONCERN

IF IT

DOESN'T GO ANY FURTHER, YOU

WON'T SEE

THE MID-TAXES BY MIDTERM.

HAVING SAID

THAT CONGRESS IS MOVING ALONG

PRETTY

WELL AS WE SPEAK.

Pat: MORE ALSO THE

PRESIDENT CAME ON

FAIRLY STRONG ABOUT ROY MOORE

AND HE

TALKED DOWN THE OPPONENT AND

SAID HOW

MUCH HE NEEDS THAT EXTRA VOTE

IN THE

SENATE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT

ALABAMA

RATE?

THE POLL IS ALL OVER THE

PLACE. WE

SEE JONES UP BY 3 POINTS AND

ROY MOORE

BY 3 POINTS.

I DON'T THINK THE POINTS ARE

GOING TO

MATTER. YOU ARE OUT THERE IN

ALABAMA

AND IT'S A TOXIC ISSUE DOWN

THERE. I

THINK ULTIMATELY ROY MOORE

WILL PULL

IT OUT BASED ON THE TERRAIN

IN ALABAMA

AND I DON'T WANT TO SAY IT'S

DIED DOWN

BUT AFTER TWO OR 3 WEEKS FROM

THIS

RELATIVELY IT'S DIED DOWN AND

THE NEWS

COMING THIS WEEK, IT'S LIKE A

ROLLER

COASTER OUT THERE, PAT.

THE ROY MOORE SITUATION

SHOULD SETTLE

DOWN AND SHOULD BENEFIT ROY

MOORE.

THANK YOU, WE APPRECIATE

YOUR

SECOND PART INTERVIEW WITH

THE

VICE-PRESIDENT.

IT'S VERY INTERESTING.

Terry: UP NEXT, THE

VICE-PRESIDENT

TALKS ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS A

BELIEVER AND

WE UNDERSTAND THE FAITH AND

THE LIFE

OF THE NATION.

STAY TUNED AS WE HAVE A

SECOND

INTERVIEW WITH THE

VICE-PRESIDENT

AFTER THIS.

AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELCOME TO A NEW WEEK

AND SOME

EXCITING THINGS GOING ON.

THE SENATE PASSED THE TAX CUT

BILL

THAT GOES TO CONFERENCE IN

THE NEXT

FEW DAYS IT WILL BE IN TENSE

NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN THE

CONFERENCE

AND THE SENATE CONFIREES AND

THEY KNOW

THEY HAVE TO PASS THE TAX

REFORM. IT

COULD BE A GOOD THING NOT

ONLY FOR THE

ECONOMY, BUT YOU PERSONALLY.

WE'LL BE

FOLLOWING THAT RIGHT ALONG.

BUT RIGHT

NOW WE WANT TO SHOW YOU THE

SECOND

HALF OF DAVID BRODY'S

INTERVIEW WITH

THE VICE-PRESIDENT WHO SAID

"PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS A BELIEVER AND SO AM

I".

THERE IS THAT INTERVIEW WITH

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE AND

DAVID BRODY

AND TALKED ABOUT THE WHITE

HOUSE AND

THE VICE-PRESIDENT PREDICTION.

THEY ARE HERE FROM THE

LIBRARY.

COUNCIL

-- PRESIDENT TRUMP 'S

VICE-PRESIDENT

TALKS ABOUT HIS ROLE AND

TRUMP MAKES

SURE THEY HAVE A VOICE INSIDE

THE

WHITE HOUSE.

EVANGELICALS WE LIKE TO

CALL IT THE

EVANGELICAL WORLD IS SURE

GETTING SOME

ACCESS WHETHER IT'S A POLICY,

BUT

BEYOND THAT, HAVING A BIBLE

STUDY AND

PRAYING IN THE OVAL OFFICE,

THE

EVANGELICALS ARE SAYING, WOW,

IT SEEMS

LIKE A NEW DAY IN OFFICE AND

WHAT IS

GOING ON SPIRITUALLY AT THE

WHITE

HOUSE?

I THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP

HAS A HEART

OF GRATITUDE FOR EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS IN THIS COUNTRY. I

HAVE TO

TELL YOU, THE SWEETEST WORDS

THE

PRESIDENT AND I HEAR AND WE

HEAR IT A

LOT ARE WHEN PEOPLE GRAB US

BY THE

HAND AND SAY WE ARE PRAYING

FOR YOU.

I HAVE BEEN WITH THIS

PRESIDENT IN THE

OVAL OFFICE WITH RELIGIOUS

LEADERS

WHEN PEOPLE HAVE ASKED TO

PAUSE FOR A

MOMENT OF PRAYER AND THE

PRESIDENT

READILY EMBRACES THAT. I

THINK HE'S

ALWAYS VERY HUMBLED AND

GRATEFUL BY

THE SUPPORT OF THE LEADERS.

PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS A BELIEVER AND SO AM

I, AND I

WE UNDERSTAND THE ROLE OF

FAITH AND

THE LIFE OF THIS NATION. THE

AMERICAN

PEOPLE I THINK WOULD BE

ENCOURAGED TO

KNOW AND THE PRESIDENT DONALD

TRUMP IS

A LEADER WHO EMBRACES AND

RESPECTS AND

APPRECIATES THE ROLE OF FAITH

AND THE

IMPORTANCE OF RELIGION IN THE

LIVES OF

OUR FAMILIES AND OUR

COMMUNITIES AND

OUR NATION AND HE ALWAYS

WILL.

SINCE TAKING THE OATH,

BOTH ARE

WORKING TO TAKE AN ASSISTANCE

ON THE

ECONOMY AND FACING CONGRESS

ON AN ON

GOING RUSSIA INVESTIGATION.

WHAT'S BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT

FOR YOU

THIS YEAR WHETHER IT BE

LEGISLATIVELY

OR OTHERS AND WHAT'S BEEN ONE

OF THE

MOST CHALLENGING MOMENTS THIS

YEAR.

WHAT WOULD YOU CALL A

CHALLENGING

MOMENT?

FOR ME IT WOULD BE AS

SERVING AS

VICE-PRESIDENT WHO IS FOCUSED

SO MUCH

ON THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF

THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE. PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAS

ALREADY SIGNED THE LARGEST

INCREASE IN

MILITARY SPENDING IN A DECADE

AND

BEFORE THE END OF THIS YEAR,

WE

BELIEVE WE WILL MAKE THE

LARGEST

INVESTMENT IN OUR NATIONAL

DEFENSE

SINCE THE DAYS OF RONALD

REAGAN.

WITH THAT RENEWED COMMITMENT,

OUR

ARMED FORCES ARE MAKING

STRONG PROMISE

AGAINST THE ERRATIC ISLAMIC

TERRORISM.

A FEW YEARS AGO ISIS DECLARED

THEIR

NEW CALIPHATE IN ROCCA.

TO SEE THE WAY THIS PRESIDENT

HAS

PROVIDED LEADERSHIP AS OUR

COMMANDER

IN CHIEF AND HIS STRONG AND

SWIFT

DECISION TO USE AMERICAN

MILITARY

POWER TO RESPOND TO THE USE

OF

CHEMICAL WEAPONS AGAINST

INNOCENT

CIVILIANS IN SYRIA, I THINK

IT SENT A

MESSAGE TO THE WORLD THAT

AMERICA IS

BACK, THAT AMERICA HAS IN A

VERY REAL

SENSE UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP,

WE

RESTORED THE CREDIBILITY OF

AMERICANS.

AND TRAVELING AROUND THE

WORLD I HAVE

HEARD IT AGAIN AND AGAIN THAT

LEADERS

WHEN I HAVE TRAVELED IN

EUROPE OR ASIA

PACIFIC OR SOUTH AMERICA,

THEY ARE

GRATEFUL TO SEE A PRESIDENT,

TO SEE AN

ADMINISTRATION THAT'S

EMBRACING OUR

WORLD AS LEADER OF THE FREE

WORLD AND

PROVIDING OUR MILITARY WITH

THE FOCUS

ON THE MISSION OF DEFEATING

ISIS, AND

FOR ME, THAT PROGRESS IS THE

PROUDEST

ACCOMPLISHMENT THAT THIS

ADMINISTRATION DURING THE

YEAR 2017.

AND CHALLENGING MOMENT OF

THE YEAR?

WHAT'S BEEN CHALLENGING FOR

YOU?

WELL, OBVIOUSLY THE

EXTRAORDINARY

IMPACT OF THE HURRICANE

SEASON ON

FLORIDA AND TEXAS AND PUERTO

RICO AND

THE VIRGINIA ISLANDS AND THE

TRAGEDIES

WE HAVE SEEN IN MASS

SHOOTINGS IN LAS

VEGAS AND THAT SMALL TOWN IN

TEXAS.

I KNOW THAT IT HAS BEEN A

REAL BURDEN

ON THE HEART OF OUR PRESIDENT

AND OUR

FAMILY. BUT I MUST TELL YOU

THAT IN

THE SAME BREATH I WOULD SAY,

DAVID,

HOW PROUD WE ARE OF OUR FIRST

RESPONDERS IN THE WAKE OF THE

HURRICANES AND HOW PROUD WE

ARE OF THE

JOB THAT FEMA HAS DONE AT

EVERY LEVEL

TO COME ALONGSIDE FAMILIES IN

THOSE

MOMENTS AND HELP FAMILIES

REBUILD AND

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BROUGHT

OPTIMISM

TO THE PEOPLE THAT WE ARE

WITH YOU

TODAY AND WITH YOU TOMORROW

AND WE ARE

WITH THEM EVERYDAY AS THE

COMMUNITIES

REBUILD. THOSE ARE THE EVENTS

THAT ARE

HEAVY ON THE HEART OF THOSE

OF US WHO

HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO SERVE.

WHAT'S IN STORE FOR 2018?

WHILE

THE ECONOMY HUMS ALONG, PENCE

PAINTS

AN EVEN ROSIER OUTLOOK.

THIS RESOLUTION?

WHEN THIS TAX REFORM IS

LED, THERE

WILL BE STRONG CONSERVATIVES

INCLUDING

NEIL GORSUCH TO THE SUPREME

COURT.

AND THE TAX REFORM AND WHAT

THE

PRESIDENT WANTS TO DO IS TO

REBUILD

AMERICA THROUGH AN

INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN

AND MOVE PEOPLE FROM WELFARE

TO WORK

IN A GROWING ECONOMY. TO

CONFRONT THE

OPIOID CRISIS THAT IS BE

SETTING SO

MANY AMERICAN FAMILIES.

THERE IS HAVE A GREAT DAY.

WORK TO DO. WHEN WE ROLL OUR

SLEEVES

UP JANUARY 1ST IN 2018,

PRESIDENT

TRUMP WILL FOCUS ON HIS

MISSIONS HE

ELECTED TO ADVANCE TO MAKE

AMERICA

PROSPER AGAIN AND TO BORROW A

PHRASE,

TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Pat: YOU CAN SEE THE ENTIRE

INTERVIEW OF VICE-PRESIDENT

PENCE AND

HIS DISCUSSION TO MOVE THE

EMBASSY TO

JERUSALEM. THAT'S ON CBN.COM.

YOU CAN

HEAR HOW HE FINALLY GOT HIS

INTERVIEW

ON HIS CBN NEWS RUN DOWN

PODCAST WITH

CAITLIN BURKE.

TERRY?

Terry: THANK YOU. COMING

UP, A

TEENAGE DARE TURNS DEADLY.

I REMEMBER JOSH LOOKING AT

ME AND

ARE YOU GOING TO LET HER DO

THAT TO

YOU? I LOOKED OVER AND ON

THE CORNER

OF MY EYE --

SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT WHEN

WE COME

BACK.

BACK.

Terry: ERIC SCHWARB AND

JOSH WERE

INSEPARABLE UNTIL THEY TOOK

THE WHEELS

OF A CAR.

ERIC SCHWARB WAS 17.

THEN THEY TOOK A RIDE WITH A

FRIEND,

JOSH.

HE WAS MY BEST FRIEND.

THEY LOVED HANGING OUT

ESPECIALLY

ON THE HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

TEAM.

JOSH WAS GIFTED AND MUCH

BETTER

THAN I WAS. HE ALWAYS PUSHED

ME. HE

WAS ALWAYS A FUN LOVING GUY.

HE DIDN'T

CARE WHAT PEOPLE THOUGHT

ABOUT HIM.

BUT A FRIDAY NIGHT IN

SEPTEMBER

1998. HE WAS GIVING JOSH A

RIDE HOME

AND A GIRL LOOKED AT HIM.

I REMEMBER SAYING TO JOSH,

ARE YOU

GOING TO DO THAT AND I SAW

THE TRUCK

LIGHT COMING UP THE HILL.

I LOOKED OVER AT JOSH AND I

SAID, ARE

YOU OKAY? HE LOOKS AT ME AND

HE GOES,

YEAH, I'M GOING TO BE FINE.

ACTUALLY I KNOW I WOKE UP IN

THE

AMBULANCE. AT THAT POINT IS

WHEN I

STARTED TO PRAY WHICH IS WHAT

I HAVE

NEVER DONE BEFORE.

ERIC WAS TAKEN TO THE

HOSPITAL WITH

A CONCUSSION AND A NUMBER OF

BRUISES.

ERIC ASKED HIS NURSE ABOUT

JOSH.

SHE HAD TEARS IN HER EYES

AND AT

THAT POINT HE NEVER MADE IT.

AND I BLAMED GOD FROM

PROBABLY MAYBE

AN HOUR-AND-A-HALF AFTER THE

ACCIDENT,

WHY ME? WHY NOW? YOU ARE

SUPPOSED TO

BE THERE TO PROTECT US.

ERIC ALSO BLAMED HIMSELF

AND

COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY

ANYONE WOULD

FORGIVE HIM.

THE PEOPLE AT THE HOSPITAL

WERE HIS

MOM AND HIS GRANDMA.

THEY CAME IN THERE AND THEY

WERE

CRYING.

THEY HAVE ALREADY FORGIVEN

ME. I

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANT

AT THAT

POINT.

DAYS LATER, THEY BURIED

HIS FRIEND.

ERIC WAS ARRESTED FOR

NEGLIGENT

HOMICIDE.

RELEASED TO HIS PARENTS UNTIL

COURT

AND HIS MOTHER READ A LETTER

ON HIS

BEHALF.

I SAID WHY ARE YOU DOING

THIS. I

DON'T DESERVE THIS. I DESERVE

TO GO TO

JAIL.

ERIC WAS GIVEN 4 YEARS

PROBATION

WITH 1 YEAR COMMUNITY SERVICE.

BUT THIS DOMINATED ERIC'S

THOUGHTS.

I WENT TO DRINK AND SMOKE

MARIJUANA

JUST TO FORGET ABOUT ALL OF

IT. I

REMEMBER SITTING THERE WITH

ONE OF MY

STEP DAD'S GUNS AND THOUGHT

ABOUT ALL

THE PEOPLE I HURT, THE

PROBLEMS I

CAUSED, THE PATH -- I WAS ON,

THE

DRINKING, THE DRUGS, FOR

WHAT? I

DON'T NEED TO BE HERE

ANYMORE.

I JUST NEVER CAN DO IT.

OVER THE NEXT 16 YEARS

ERIC

CONTINUED TO STRUGGLE WITH

GUILT AND

DEPRESSION. THE DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL

DIDN'T FILL THE VOID LEFT BY

HIS

FRIEND.

ON OCCASION, HE WOULD VISIT

JOSH'S

GRAVE.

BUT AT THE GRAVE SITE IN

2014, ERIC'S

THOUGHTS LED HIM SOMEWHERE.

I WAS JUST SITTING THERE

AND ASKING

GOD IF THERE WAS ANYTHING I

CAN DO TO

POINT ME IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION.

ERIC STARTED READING THE

BIBLE AND

GOING TO CHURCH. AS HE DID,

HE

DISCOVERED THE IMPORTANT

TRUTHED.

I STARTED TO DISCOVER THE

PEOPLE IN

THE BIBLE THAT WEREN'T

PERFECT AND DID

BAD THINGS AND JESUS FORGAVE

THEM.

ERIC ASKED FOR AND

ACCEPTED GOD'S

FORGIVENESS.

IT WAS A MOMENT WHERE I

JUST GAVE

IT ALL UP, EVERYTHING. WHEN I

TRULY

REPENTED AND GAVE UP

EVERYTHING, THE

DRINKING, THE DRUGS, IT WAS

GONE. I

KNOW WHAT THAT VOID IS.

THE VOID IS JESUS.

IT WAS CHRIST.

ALSO THE VOID OF JOSH'S

DEATH WAS

FINALLY LIFTED.

ALL THAT HAS BEEN FORGIVEN

AND I

DIDN'T KNOW.

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

THE WAY I FELT, THE WAY I

STARTED TO

SEE THINGS WAS JUST CLEAR.

IN 2015, ERIC MARRIED

MICHELLE AND

TODAY THEY HAVE A BEAUTIFUL

DAUGHTER.

HE'S THANKFUL FOR THE FREEDOM

OF

FORGIVENESS HE NOW HAS

THROUGH JESUS

CHRIST.

IT'S A FEEL OF PEACE TO

KNOW THAT

HE'S OUR SAVIOUR AND TO WAKE

UP EVERY

MORNING AND FORGIVENESS FROM

JESUS AND

THANK HIM EVERYDAY FOR THAT

FORGIVENESS, THAT'S ALL YOU

NEED.

Terry: INTERESTING, ISN'T

IT? ERIC

SAID THAT AT THE MOMENT HE

WAS IN THAT

CAR AND WOKE UP AND GOT UP IN

THAT

AMBULANCE, HE GOT UP TO PRAY

AND

SOMETHING HE HADN'T DONE

BEFORE. AND

THEN WHAT ERIC DID, IS RIGHT

AFTER HE

WAS BLAMING GOD AND ASKING

WHY WEREN'T

YOU THERE? YOU WERE SUPPOSED

TO TAKE

CARE OF US. YOU KNOW, WE

PRESUME ON

GOD, WE DON'T HAVE SPACE FOR

HIM, WE

DON'T HAVE TIME FOR HIM, WE

DON'T NEED

HIM UNTIL WE ARE IN AN OUT OF

CONTROL

SITUATION AND WE ALMOST CRY

OUT IN

ANGER AND ASK, GOD, WHERE ARE

YOU?

BUT YET IN THE MIDST OF OUR

PRESUMPTION, GOD IS THERE AND

HE SITS

AND HE WAITS AND HE LOVES AND

HE

FORGIVES AND HE HAS MERCY.

IF YOU PRESUMED ON GOD IN

YOUR LIFE,

ARE YOU GOING TO WAIT UNTIL

THE MOMENT

THAT YOU ARE IN AN AMBULANCE

OR SOME

OTHER CRISIS SITUATION AND

THEN CRY

OUT TO GOD THAT HE SHOULD BE

THERE FOR

YOU IN THE MIDST OF YOUR PAIN

AND YOUR

HURT AND YOUR LOSS? THAT IS

RIGHT NOW.

THE QUESTION ISN'T WHERE IS

GOD, THE

QUESTION IS WHERE ARE YOU?

WHY WOULD

YOU WALK AWAY FROM YOUR

INHERITANCE?

THE BIBLE SAYS HE KNEW YOU

BEFORE YOU

WERE FORMED IN YOUR MOTHER'S

WOMB.

THAT'S HIS INTENSE THOUGHT.

WHERE ARE

YOU? HE'S ALWAYS BEEN THERE.

HE ALSO TALKED ABOUT THE FACT

THAT

WHEN HIS FRIEND'S FAMILY

FORGAVE HIM

THAT HE DIDN'T DESERVE IT.

YOU KNOW THAT'S TRUE FOR

EVERYONE OF

US. EVEN RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU

ARE NOT IN

TUNE WITH GOD AND NOT GIVING

HIM YOUR

LIFE, HE'S NOT JUST STANDING

THERE BUT

WITH FORGIVENESS IN HIS

HEART. HE'S

SAYING I GUIDE YOU WHEN YOU

ARE LOST.

WE ARE ALL LOST. WE ARE ALL

IN NEED OF

A SAVIOUR. THERE IS NO ONE

THAT

DOESN'T NEED THAT.

EVERYONE IS INVITED TO BE

FORGIVEN.

TODAY YOU CAN STAY IN YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCE AND BE IN

DIFFERENT TO

GOD AND BE CALLOUS ABOUT WHAT

YOU

THINK ABOUT HIM, BUT HIS

FORGIVENESS

IS OPEN TO YOU. I BELIEVE IF

YOU

RECEIVE THAT TODAY, YOU WILL

EXPERIENCE EXACTLY WHAT ERIC

DID. THE

EMPTINESS INSIDE, THAT THING

THAT YOU

ARE SEWING WITH ALL OF YOUR

JUNK AND

ALL THE WRONG DECISIONS IS

GOING TO

FINALLY REST, FINALLY FIND

PEACE,

FINALLY FIND WHAT IT IS YOU

ARE

LOOKING FOR ALL ALONG. HOW DO

YOU GET

THERE? LISTEN, YOU LAY IT

ALL DOWN.

LAY IT ALL DOWN. YOU SAY,

JESUS, I GET

IT. I AM IN NEED OF A SAVIOUR

AND YOU

DIED FOR ME.

I'M ASKING YOU TODAY TO

FORGIVE MY

SINS AND TELL HIM WHAT THEY

ARE. NAME

THEM ONE BY ONE. IF YOU ARE

LIKE ME,

YOU WILL HAVE A LONG LIST.

THE LENGTH

OF THE LIST ISN'T WHAT HE

CARES ABOUT,

IT'S THE OPENNESS OF YOUR

HEART TO

RECEIVE THE SACRIFICE HE MADE

FOR YOU

BECAUSE OF THE LOVE HE WANTS

TO GIVE

TO YOU.

ASK HIM TO COME INTO YOUR

HEART AND

ASK HIM TO CHANGE. BECAUSE

JESUS LOVES

YOU RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE AT

BUT HE

LOVES YOU TOO MUCH TO LET YOU

STAY

THERE.

FORGIVENESS IS WHAT OPENS THE

DOOR TO

NEW LIFE AND NEW BEGINNINGS.

SO

FORGIVE YOURSELF AND GET TO

THE WORD

OF GOD AND FIND OUT WHAT HE

HAS TO SAY

TO YOU. HE'S GOT A WONDERFUL

WONDERFUL

PLAN FOR YOU. DON'T MISS OUT

ON THAT.

WALK WITH

JESUS AND BE HIS FOLLOWER,

DAY" IS AVAILABLE FOR YOU

HAVE SOME ANSWERS.

WELCOME BACK TO THE "700

CLUB".

WASHINGTON AND JERUSALEM ARE

LOOKING

FORWARD TO ONE OF THE

PRESIDENT'S MOST

IMPORTANT FOREIGN POLICY

DECISIONS

WHETHER TO MOVE THE EMBASSY

OF THE

UNITED STATES FROM TEL AVIV

TO

JERUSALEM AND THE MIDDLE EAST

PEACE

PROCESS. KUSHNER SAYS THE

PRESIDENT IS

STILL DECIDED.

THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO

MAKE HIS

DECISION.

HE HASN'T MADE HIS

DECISION?

HE'S STILL LOOKING AT A

LOT OF

DIFFERENT FACT AND WHEN HE

MAKES THE

DECISION, HE'LL BE THE ONE TO

TELL

YOU, NOT ME.

THE PRESIDENT IS EXPECTED

TO MAKE

AN ANNOUNCEMENT WEDNESDAY. HE

COULD

DECIDE TO MOVE THE JERUSALEM

OR MOVE

JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITOL.

> CONGRESS THOMPSON

REPRESENTS

PENNSYLVANIA DISTRICT IN THE

US HOUSE

OF REPRESENTATIVES.

HE WENT TO SEE THE

HUMANITARIAN

PROJECTS. CBN ALSO INTRODUCED

HIM TO

THE AMERICAN AMBASSADOR AND

SEVERAL

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND

NATIONAL

CHURCH LEADERS AND ALSO SPENT

A LOT OF

TIME FELLOWSHIP ---ING WITH

STAFF.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MORE

CBN "700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: IT'S TIME FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS

AND SOME HONEST ANSWERS. PAT,

THIS

COMES FROM JOY WHO SAYS, HI

THERE. I

DID THE SALVATION PRAYER AND

INVITED

GOD TO MY HEART BUT NOTHING

CHANGED.

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

Pat: WELL, IT'S LIKE

SAYING, I GOT

MARRIED AND BOUGHT A NEW

HOUSE AND I'M

NOT HAPPY. WHAT IS WRONG?

WELL, ARE YOU ENJOYING

YOUR SPOUSE

AND ENJOYING ONE ANOTHER.

I THINK THAT'S THE ANSWER TO

YOU.

ENJOY WHAT'S YOURS. YOU

CLAIMED IT AND

BOUGHT THE HOUSE AND YOU GOT

MARRIED.

NOW ENTER INTO THE

RELATIONSHIP THAT

YOU HAD AND YOU SAY WHAT DID

YOU

EXPECT TO HAPPEN, AN ANGEL

COMING DOWN

FROM HEAVEN AND I'M MAKING YOU

WHOLE.

START ENJOYING IT. ALL RIGHT,

Terry: HERE IS ONE PAT,

FROM JAY. HE

SAYS WHAT DO YOU IF GOD NEVER

ANSWERED

A PRAYER FOR YOU IN 64 YEARS.

I NEED GOD TO ANSWER A PRAYER

FOR MY

SON AND DAUGHTER.

HE HAS DONE NOTHING FOR ME IN

MY WHOLE

LIFE. I'M STARTING TO FEEL

THAT GOD

DOES NOT EXIST.

Pat: HE'S NEVER DONE

ANYTHING IN

YOUR LIFE. HOW OLD? 64? YOU

ARE

ALIVE THAT LONG. YOU ARE

APPARENTLY

HEALTHY. HE'S DONE SOMETHING

FOR YOU.

YOU HAVE FREEDOM TO DO

WHATEVER YOU

WANT TO DO.

YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE A GOOD

INCOME. YOU

ARE LIVING PRETTY WELL AND

THE LORD

HAS DONE A LOT FOR YOU, YOU

JUST

HAVEN'T RECOGNIZED IT.

IT'S TIME YOU OPEN YOUR EYES

TO SEE

WHO GOD IS AND WHAT HE IS.

YOU SAY HE

HAS NOT ANSWERED YOUR

PRAYERS, WHY

NOT? WELL, YOU HAVE NOT

ANSWERED IN

YOUR HEART AND YOU HOLD A

GRUDGE, AND

YOU MAY NOT KNOW HOW TO PRAY.

YOU ARE

ASKING, GIVE ME, GIVE ME AND

YOU ARE

NOT PRAISING THE LORD. YOU

PRAISE WITH

THANKSGIVING. AND YOU SHOW

GRATITUDE.

YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE NOT SHOWN

GRATITUDE

FOR ALL HE HAS DONE FOR YOU.

JUST

START THANKING HIM.

THIS IS SOMEONE WHO SAYS I

HAVE

GONE TO SEE DOCTORS AND THE

SCANS SAY

IT'S STAGE 4 CANCER. I HAVE

TALKED TO

MY PAST ABOUT MY HEALING AND

SHE SAYS

IT'S PRAYING THAT'S GOING TO

WORK OUT.

THE CANCER IS STILL THERE.

IS THE CANCER THERE IF I HAVE

NOT

ACKNOWLEDGED IT?

Pat: OF COURSE IT'S THERE.

YOU HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION

THAT IS

LIFE THREATENING. WHAT DO YOU

DO? YOU

GO TO THE LORD AND SPEAK IN

THAT

DIRECTION AND YOU SPEAK WORDS

OF

FAITH. I'M GETTING BETTER.

I'M GOING

TO BE HEALED. THAT DOESN'T

MEAN YOU

ARE NOT ACKNOWLEDGING WHAT'S

THERE.

I DON'T KNOW IN THINGS LIKE

THIS WHERE

IT COMES A TIME THAT YOU HAVE

TO

ACKNOWLEDGE AND DEATH IS

COMING ON YOU

AND YOU NEED TO GET READY FOR

IT. I

DON'T KNOW WHAT TO TELL YOU.

I DON'T

KNOW YOU WELL, BUT I WOULDN'T

BLAME

THE ASSISTANT PASTOR FOR

SAYING WHAT

YOU SAID BECAUSE IT'S NOT

ACCURATE.

Terry: THIS IS SOMEONE WHO

SAYS I

HAVE BEEN LAID OFF FROM MY

PART-TIME

JOB AND I HAVE BEEN LOOKING

FOR

EMPLOYMENT FOR THE LAST FEW

MONTHS BUT

WITH CHRISTMAS AROUND THE

CORNER, I AM

STARTING TO GET WORRIED. WHAT

SHOULD I

DO?

Pat: WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS

ASK

YOURSELF HOW CAN I MAKE A

DIFFERENCE

IN AN EMPLOYERS LIFE. WHAT IS

IT THEY

NEED THAT I CAN BRING TO THEM

IS THIS

YOU KNOW, WE ARE ALWAYS

SAYING, WILL

YOU GIVE ME A JOB, WILL YOU

GIVE ME

MONEY, WILL YOU PAY MY

SALARY, WHAT

CAN YOU DO FOR THE EMPLOYER?

THAT'S

WHEN YOU NEED TO SAY, I HAVE

GOT THESE

SKILLS AND HERE IS HOW I CAN

HELP YOUR

BUSINESS AND HERE IS A PLAN

TO MAKE

YOU SELL MORE AT

CHRISTMASTIME. PEOPLE

ARE LOOKING FOR WORKERS.

THERE IS A

TREMENDOUS SHORTAGE OF

WORKERS RIGHT

NOW TO HANDLE ALL THE

PACKAGES AND ALL

THE STUFF THAT'S GOING OUT.

SO, IT

SHOULDN'T BE TOO HARD. LOOK

FOR

SOMEBODY WHO HAS A NEED,

SHORTHANDED

AND YOU ARE THERE TO SUPPLY

THAT NEED.

ALWAYS LOOK FOR HOW YOU CAN

MEET

SOMEBODY'S NEED AND NOW HOW

THEY CAN

MEET YOUR NEED.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER AND

SAYS THE

BIBLE SPEAKS ABOUT HOW IT

COULD CAST

OUT DEMONS AND HOW WOULD HE

CAST THE

DEMON OUT?

YOU CAST THE DEMONS BY

SPEAKING IN

THE NAME OF JESUS. BUT WE

HAVE TO BE

VERY CAREFUL. THESE PEOPLE

THAT ARE

DEMON HUNTING AND THE BIBLE

SAYS IF

YOU PURSUE EVIL, EVIL WILL

COME TO

YOU. I'M JUST VERY LEERY OF

THESE

PEOPLE ALWAYS CASTING ON

DEMONS.

DEMONS ARE REAL. THEY WERE

REAL IN

JESUS' DAY AND REAL TODAY.

BUT HAVING

YOU KNOW, WELL IT'S

DISCERNMENT AND

HOW DO YOU HAVE THAT IS BY

HAVING THE

PRESENCE OF GOD AND DEAL WITH

THIS

OVER A PERIOD OF TIME. YOU

HAVE TO BE

CAREFUL THAT YOU ARE NOT AN

ATTRIBUTING YOUR

MOTHER-IN-LAW AS A

DEMON. THAT IS NOT A WAY TO

GO.

Terry: THAT MAYBE PREVALENT.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE.

Pat: WELL, HE'S A HARD

WORKING TRUCK

DRIVER. WHEN HE'S NOT ON THE

ROAD HE'S

SPENDING TIME WITH HIS WIFE

VICKIE AND

FOUR CHILDREN AND LIKE MANY

FAMILIES,

THEY HAVE HAD A FINANCIAL

SETBACK AND

HAD TO LIVE IN A TENT.

THEY HAD FOUR CHILDREN AND

ENJOY

THEIR FAMILIES AS MUCH AS

THEY CAN.

WE ENJOY GETTING TO THE

PARK AND

HAVING FUN.

HE WORKS DRIVING A TRUCK.

I HAVE NEVER MET A MAN SO

DETERMINED TO WORK AND MAKING

SURE HE

CAN SUPPORT HIS FAMILY.

WHEN HOURS AT WORK WERE

DRASTICALLY

CUT, THE FAMILY RAN OUT OF

OPTIONS AND

FOR A WHILE, IS THE ONLY

PLACE THEY

HAD TO LIVE WAS A SMALL CAMP.

IT'S DIFFICULT BUT YOU

HAVE TO KEEP

GOING ON.

WITH EACH STRUGGLE, THEY

HAVE

LEANED ON GOD.

I LEARNED THAT YOU HAVE TO

KEEP GOD

IN MIND WHEN YOU ARE IN THE

DOWN

TIMES.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN YOU

DON'T KNOW

WHERE YOU ARE GOING. WE HAD

TO SIT

DOWN ANDRE ETHIER PAY A BILL

OR EAT.

THEY EXPERIENCED GOD'S

PROVISION

THROUGH "OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNER

JOSEPH STOREHOUSE. SEEING THE

WHEELBARROWS COME OUT OF THE

DOOR AND

HOW MUCH FOOD THEY GIVE IS

WOW, THAT'S

MORE THAN YOU CAN GET IN A

SHOPPING

CART. IT WAS A REAL BLESSING

AND MY

KIDS EYES WERE LIKE OH MY

GOSH.

THEY COME TO HELP WHEN A

TIME

BUYING GROCERIES ARE

DIFFICULT. IT

HELPS.

I THINK IT'S AN AMAZING

THING WHAT

YOU ARE DOING BECAUSE WHAT

YOU ARE NOT

DOING IS YOU ARE NOT JUST

GIVING BUT

SHOWING THE LOVE OF GOD

THROUGH YOUR

GIFT TO THEM.

Pat: YOU KNOW, IT'S ONE OF

OUR JOYCE

TO BE ABLE TO FEED PEOPLE AND

CLOTHES

PEOPLE.

THIS IS IF YOU SEE THE HUNGRY

AND SEE

THE NAKED YOU GIVE THEM

CLOTHING AND

YOU BRING THE JOY OF THE LORD

TO THEM.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS NOW,

WELL,

WE'VE HELPED MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE AND

GIVEN AWAY ABOUT $4 BILLION

WORTH OF

STUFF. FOOD, CLOTHING,

HOUSING. IT'S

WHAT YOU CAN DO WHEN YOU JOIN

THE "700

CLUB". WE WANT THE GIVE YOU

THIS BY

THE WAY, WHICH IS CALLED "ASK

ANYTHING".

IT'S TO QUESTIONS WE HAVE AND

WE HAVE

ANOTHER ONE COMING UP I MIGHT

ADD

WHICH IS ANSWERS TO PRAYERS

THAT WE

WANT TO GIVE AWAY IN JANUARY.

BUT THIS IS AVAILABLE FOR YOU

RIGHT

NOW. IT'S BIBLICAL ANSWERS TO

LIFE'S

MOST PRESSING QUESTIONS. IT'S

YOURS

WHEN YOU JOIN THE "700 CLUB".

HOW DO

YOU DO THAT? $0.65 A DAY AND

YOU CAN

BRING JOY TO SOMEBODY

ESPECIALLY AT

CHRISTMASTIME. LET'S HELP

EACH OTHER.

Terry: I HAVE A COMMENT FOR

YOU AND

THIS WILL BLESS YOU. THIS IS

FROM LOU

FROM WEST VIRGINIA. HE SAYS

I'M

IMPRESSED WITH ASK GOD FOR

ANYTHING.

MY HEART IS BLESSED.

THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT TO

ENCOURAGE

YOU IN YOUR FAITH.

Pat: TO GET THE WORD. WE

ARE HERE

AND I BELIEVE THE BIBLE. I

REALLY

BELIEVE THE BIBLE AND I

REALLY BELIEVE

IN GOD AND I KNOW HE'S REAL.

IF I CAN

BRING TO YOU THE JOY OF THE

LORD, THEN

THAT'S MY DELIGHT.

AND I HAVE ASKED YOU SOME

QUESTIONS

THAT ARE REALLY HARD

QUESTIONS AND

THAT'S WHAT THIS DVD IS ABOUT.

THE ONE THAT'S COMING UP IS

GOING TO

BE DYNAMITE. I WAS WITH SCOTT

ROSS AND

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE

ANSWERS TO

PRAYER AND HINDRANCES TO

PRAYERS AND

THE EXAMPLES OF PRAYERS AND

SO MANY

WONDERFUL THINGS. TERRY,

YOU'VE GOT A

GIFT?

Terry: SPEAKING OF GIFTS,

WE HAVE AN

AUTHOR WITH FOUR CHILDREN.

ROCKY RELATIONSHIPS,

ADDICTION,

THERE ARE RELATIONS.

SHE SHOWS YOU HOW TO PRAY

FOR YOUR

CHILDREN AFTER THIS.

CHILDREN AFTER THIS.

Terry: NO MATTER HOW OR

WHERE

CHILDREN GROW, AS PARENTS WE

NEVER

STOP WORRYING ABOUT THEM AND

WE SHOULD

NEVER STOP PRAYING FOR THEM

EITHER.

TAKE A LOOK.

JOEY, AUTHOR, SPEAKER AND

MOTHER OF

FOUR GROWN CHILDREN THAT

SUCCESSFUL

PARENTING IS PRAYER.

IF YOU'VE GOT ADULT

CHILDREN, YOU

KNOW THERE IS A LOT MORE TO

THE MIX.

JOB CONCERNS, ROCKY

RELATIONSHIPS,

ADDICTION, THERE IS MANY

THINGS THAT

CLAMOR OUR KIDS ATTENTION.

IN HER BOOK, JODY SHOWS

HOW TO PRAY

FOR THEM WHETHER THEY ARE

JUST LEAVING

THE NEST OR FLYING ON THEIR

OWN.

Terry: WE WELCOME BACK TO

THE "700

CLUB" IS JODY. THANKS FOR

JOINING US.

THANK YOU, IT GREAT TO BE

HERE.

YOU TALK ABOUT PRAYING FOR

YOUR

CHILDREN AND THE SCRIPTURES.

IT A HUGE

RESPONSIBILITY.

WHY IS IT SO POWERFUL TO PRAY

FOR

SCRIPTURE.

WHAT A WONDERFUL THING.

IT'S GREAT

BECAUSE WE BREATHE HIS WORDS

INTO OUR

LIVES AND BREATHE BACK INTO

HIM AND IT

COMES WITH A STORY.

YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE

MIGHT

SAY, WHAT DO YOU MEAN PRAYING

FOR OUR

ADULT CHILDREN. BY THAT TIME

WE'VE

LAUNCHED THEM.

YES.

I HAVE GOT THIS RIGHT AWAY.

SIGN ME UP.

A PARENT'S JOB IS NEVER OVER.

IT'S NEVER OVER BEING A

PARENT .

ONE OF THE REASONS IS BECAUSE

I HAVE

ADULT CHILDREN AND I NEED TO

PRAY.

IT'S LETTING YOU KNOW THAT WE

ARE NOT

ALONE. WE ARE ON THIS

BOARDING TEAM

WITH OUR FRIENDS AND OUR NEST

IS EMPTY

AND OUR LIVES ARE EMPTY AND

SHARING

WITH OTHER PARENTS. WE ARE

ALL IN THIS

TOGETHER. MY NEEDS MAY NOT

MATCH YOUR

NEEDS FOR YOUR CHILDREN, BUT

WE ARE

PRAYING AND WITH GOD WE'LL

ACCOMPLISH

THOSE PURPOSES.

HOW DO YOU PRAYER?

WELL YOU KNOW WE SAY

LITTLE PEOPLE

LITTLE PROBLEMS AND BIG

PEOPLE, BIG

PROBLEMS. BUT ALL OF OUR KIDS

WHETHER

40 YEARS OLD, THEY NEED

WISDOM AND

GUIDANCE AND ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

OBVIOUSLY IN THIS BOOK, THE

ISSUES ARE

ABOUT GETTING A JOB, FINDING

A

MARRIAGE PARTNER AND SOME

TRICKY STUFF

LIKE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND

ADDICTION AND PRODIGAL KIDS.

THE

ISSUES MAY CHANGE, BUT GOD

DOESN'T.

Terry: TALK ABOUT SOME OF

THE ISSUES

IN THE BOOK BECAUSE YOU

HAVEN'T SHYED

AWAY FROM DIFFICULTIES NOT

JUST WITH

THE CHILD BUT THEY ARE GROWN

UPS AND

THEY MAKE THEIR OWN

DECISIONS.

I DO AND I TALK ABOUT

THOSE COMMON

ISSUES. THEY ALL NEED GOD'S

PROTECTION

AND THEY NEED HELP IN GETTING

A JOB

AND PRAYING FOR A MARRIAGE

PARTNER,

BUT ALSO DO TALK ABOUT SEXUAL

SIN OR

DRUG AND ALCOHOL ADDICTION,

QUESTIONS

ABOUT FAITH AND MAYBE WALKING

AWAY

FROM WHAT THEY WERE RAISED IN.

AND I WANT THEM TO KNOW THAT

GOD SEE'S

US AND HE KNOWS WHERE THEY

ARE.

Terry: SOME OF THE

QUESTIONS THAT

CHRISTIAN PARENTS HAVE IS HOW

DO I

LOVE MY CHILD WITHOUT

CONDONING.

THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION

BECAUSE I

HEAR PARENTS PRAY TO GOD AND

SAY, GOD,

WHAT THE HECK. I SAY PRAY FOR

OUR

CHILDREN AND BLESS OUR

CHILDREN'S

BECAUSE THE BLESSING IS NOT

THE SAME

THING AS THE ENDORSEMENT,

WHEN WE

BLESS OUR KIDS, WE SPEAK

GOD'S FAVOR

OVER THEM AND INVITE HIM IN

THEIR

LIVES AND WE ASK FOR A

BLESSING EVEN

IF WE DON'T APPROVE OF ALL

THE CHOICES

THEY MAKE.

ONE OF WHY YOU ARE --

YOUR

CHILDREN IS A ROCKET

SCIENTIST?

I DIDN'T CONSIDER THAT.

I'M AN

ENGLISH MAJOR. I CONSIDER

THAT A

REBELLION.

HOW DO YOU ADDRESS THE

SCRIPTURE IN

A WAY THAT IMPACTS YOUR OWN

CHILDREN?

SHE WAS LOOKING FOR A JOB

AND

WANTED TO WORK IN THE SPACE

INDUSTRY.

I JUST SAID, AIM LOWER.

WAY TO GO, MOM.

YEAH, NOT MY BEST

PARENTING. BUT IT

WAS PUT IN HER HEART.

AND THERE ARE GOOD WORKS THAT

HE HAS

PREPARED US IN ADVANCE TO DO

AND HOW

HE'S FORMED HER FEARFULLY AND

WONDERFULLY IN WAYS I DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND BUT HE DID.

HOW TO COME ALONG THE JOB

FRONT AND HE

OPENED THOSE DOORS FOR HER TO

LIVE OUT

HER DREAM.

AND YOU SAW IT?

WE SAW IT.

HOW ABOUT THOSE CHILDREN

WHO BREAK

THE HEARTS OF THEIR CHILDREN.

WHAT DO

YOU SAY THE PARENTS WHO HAVE

THE

PRODIGAL THAT THEY DEARLY

LOVE AND

HAVE GONE THE WRONG-WAY?

I WOULD SAY GOD KNOWS, GOD

SEE'S,

GOD HAS HAD HIS OWN CHILDREN

WALK AWAY

AND KNOWS WHAT IT'S LIKE TO

HAVE

WAYWARD CHILD. I KNOW I WAS

PRAYING

FOR SOME THINGS FOR MY

CHILDREN THAT

DIDN'T HAPPEN. AND I THOUGHT,

GOD,

C'MON, I HAVE ASKED FOR THIS

AND

PRAYED THE SCRIPTURES, I SAID

I

TRUSTED YOU.

GOD SAID, JODY, YOU DIDN'T

TRUST ME,

YOU TRUSTED AN OUTCOME. I

HAVE A PLAN.

I WANT YOU TO TRUST ME. I'M

STILL

WRITING THEIR STORY. FOR

THOSE GOING

OVER A ROCKY SEASON, TRUST

GOD BECAUSE

HE'S STILL WRITING YOUR

STORY.

Terry: THIS IS AVAILABLE

WHERE BOOKS

ARE SOLD. WE ALSO HAVE AN

EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW WITH JODY ON OUR

FACEBOOK

PAGE. JUST GO TO "700

CLUB".COM.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER

MINUTE FROM PROVERB.

"TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY

HE SHOULD

GO, AND WHEN HE IS OLD HE

WILL NOT

DEPART FROM IT."

PROVERBS 22:6 (NKJV)

YOU CAN COUNT ON THAT ONE.

WELL,

TOMORROW MORE DEADLY NEWS ON

SUGAR

ADDICTION. WE ARE NOT JUST

TALKING

ABOUT SWEETS. THEY ARE

EVERYWHERE AND

I THINK THIS WILL BE OUR

HEALTH TIP

FOR CHRISTMAS.

PROBABLY RUIN YOUR CHRISTMAS

AND TELL

YOU NOT TO EAT ALL THAT PIE

AND CAKE

COMING DOWN, ANYHOW, YOU WILL

HEAR IT

ON THE "700 CLUB". THANK YOU

FOR

JOINING US. THIS IS ALL THE

TIME WE

GOT AND FROM PAT AND TERRY

AND ALL OF

US, WE WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE,

BYE.
