Announcer: THE

FOLLOWING PROGRAM IS

Wendy: COMING UP...A

SPIRITUAL BIOGRAPHY OF THE

PRESIDENT.

DAVID BRODY TAKES A LOOK

AT THE FAITH OF DONALD

TRUMP.

> PLUS...INSIDE THE

TRAINING CENTER OF GOLD

MEDALIST SCOTT HAMILTON.

I HAD TO FALL IN LOVE

WITH IT IN ORDER TO BECOME

AN OLYMPIC CHAMPION.

Wendy: AND THEN...THE

HIGH SCHOOLER WHO OVER

CAME TAUNTS, AND WHO

BECAME A CIVIL RIGHTS HERO

IN DOING SO.

SHE SHARES HER STORY ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: HEY, IT'S SO

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

> WELL, WE'RE LEARNING

MORE ABOUT THE SUSPECTED

GUNMAN IN THE SHOOTING AT

A HIGH SCHOOL IN FLORIDA.

HEE IS A 19-YEAR-OLD

FORMER STUDENT, WHO HAD

BEEN EXPELLED FROM THAT

SCHOOL.

AND OTHER STUDENTS HAD

SAID IF ANYONE WAS GOING

TO SHOOT UP THE SCHOOL,

THIS GUY WAS THE MAN.

Terry: WELL, NOW 17

PEOPLE ARE DEAD AFTER THE

SHOOTING RAMPAGE ON

WEDNESDAY.

THE KILLER IS IN CUSTODY.

GARY LANE BRINGS US THIS

STORY.

Reporter: THOSE

FAMILIAR WITH ALLEGED

GUNMAN NIKOLAS CRUZ SAY HE

WAS A LONER, AN OUTCAST

WHO BARELY INTERACTED WITH

OTHER STUDENTS WHEN HE

ATTENDED MARJORY STONEMAN

DOUGLAS.

CRUZ HAD BEEN EXPELLED

FROM THE PARKLAND FLORIDA

SCHOOL FOR DISCIPLINARY

REASONS, AND SOME TEACHERS

WARNED HE COULD COME BACK

AND CAUSE TROUBLE.

COME BACK HE DID, ARMED

WITH AN ASSAULT RIFLE.

HE HAD COUNTLESS

MAGAZINES, MULTIPLE

MAGAZINES, AND AT THIS

POINT WE BELIEVE HE HAD

ONE AR-15 RIFLE.

Reporter: IT WAS NEAR

THE END OF THE SCHOOL DAY

WHEN JUST AFTER 2 p.m.

CRUZ ALLEGEDLY ENTERED THE

SCHOOL.

THE FIRE ALARM WAS SET

OFF, AND THAT'S WHEN

STUDENTS SAY HE STARTED

SHOOTING THEM IN THE

HALLWAY AS THEY LEFT THEIR

CLASSROOMS.

IT WAS JUST ANOTHER

FIRE DRILL, BECAUSE WE HAD

ANOTHER ONE EARLIER.

AND KIDS WERE EVACUATING.

Reporter: SEVERAL

STUDENTS CAPTURED THE

TRAGEDY ON THEIR

SMARTPHONES.

THIS VIDEO SHOWS SOME OF

THE GUNFIRE.

POLICE RUSHED TO THE

SCENE.

I HAVE THE GUNSHOT

VICTIM BY THE ENTRANCE ON

THE WEST SIDE OF THE

SCHOOL.

Reporter: AS S.W.A.T.

TEAMS MOVED IN, STUDENTS

BARBARRICADED THEMSELVES,

SOME TEXTING THEIR PARENTS

IN WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN A

FINAL DESPERATE ACT.

SHE KEPT TELLING ME TO

STAY AWAY.

I'M TELLING HER, NO,

CRYSTAL, I'M YOUR MOTHER,

I'M NOT STAYING AWAY.

Reporter: STUDENTS

FLED THE BUILDING, MOST

WITH THEIR HANDS RAISED

OVER THEIR HEADS.

MANY ABANDONED THEIR

BACKPACKS.

AN HOUR AFTER THE SHOOTING

BEGAN, THE GUNMAN WAS

STILL AT LARGE.

TRAUMATIZED STUDENTS

MOURNED THEIR LOST

FRIENDS.

WORRIED PARENTS JUST

WANTED TO KNOW IF THEIR

CHILDREN WERE SAFE.

WE CAN'T GET AHOLD OF

HER.

HAVE YOU CALLED AND YOU

TEXTED, AND NOTHING HAS

COME BACK.

NO.

HER GIRLFRIEND GOT SHOT,

WE HEARD.

Reporter: THIS

STUDENT SAW HER TEACHER

SHOT IN FRONT OF HER.

WE SAW HIS BODY FOR,

LIKE, 30 MINUTES.

WE WERE JUST, LIKE,

PRAYING AND CRYING, AND

THEN THE POLICE CAME AND

WE JUST GOT OUT.

Reporter: THE SUSPECT

WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY

NEARLY TWO HOURS AFTER THE

SHOOTING.

I ASK THE COMMUNITY FOR

YOUR PRAYERS, YOUR SUPPORT

FOR THESE CHILDREN AND

THEIR FAMILIES.

YOU'RE FURIOUS.

HOW COULD THIS EVER HAPPEN

IN THIS COUNTRY?

Reporter: BUT HAPPEN,

IT DID.

EVEN THOUGH SOME STUDENTS

AND TEACHERS SAW POTENTIAL

WARNING SIGNS.

SOME STUDENTS HAD EVEN

SAID IN THE PAST, IF

ANYONE WAS GOING TO SHOOT

UP THE SCHOOL, IT WOULD BE

NIKOLAS CRUZ.

THE TROUBLED 19-YEAR-OLD

ALLEGED SHOOTER DID NOT

KILL HIMSELF AND WASN'T

GUNNED DOWN BY POLICE.

SINCE HE IS STILL ALIVE,

HE'LL FACE JUSTICE AND

TRIAL.

AND IN THE STATE OF

FLORIDA, THAT MEANS HE

COULD POTENTIALLY FACE THE

DEATH PENALTY IF CONVICTED

OF THIS HORRIFIC CRIME.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: I WAS TRYING

TO FIN Pat: I WAS TRYING TO

FIND OUT IF HE WAS TAKING

ANY MEDICATIONS, ANY

ANTI-DEPRESSANTS.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY EVIDENCE

OF THAT YET, BUT SOMETHING

MIGHT COME OUT.

IT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND

THAT JUST BEING EXPELLED

THAT THIS WOULD CAUSE THIS

KIND OF RAGE, BUT

APPARENTLY IT DID.

BUT HE WASN'T JUST A

LITTLE BOY.

HE IS 19 YEARS OLD, SO HE

WILL BE TRIED AS AN ADULT

AND FACE THE DEATH

PENALTY.

AND, WELL, THAT'S AN

APPROPRIATE PENALTY FOR

SOMETHING AS HORRIBLE AS

THIS.

BUT WE MOURN THE DEATHS OF

THESE WONDERFUL STUDENTS

AND TEACHERS, WHO WERE

GUNNED DOWN IN THIS

SENSELESS ACT OF VIOLENCE.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

IT LOOKS LIKE A BIPARTISAN

GROUP OF SENATORS HAS

REACHED AN AGREEMENT ON

IMMIGRATION.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE SENATORS ARE CROSSING

PARTY LINES TO COME UP

WITH A PLAN TO CREATE A

PATH FOR CITIZENSHIP FOR

DREAMERS.

THE NEW PLAN WOULD GRANT A

10 TO 12-YEAR ROUTE TO

CITIZENSHIP FOR

1.8 MILLION YOUNG PEOPLE

BROUGHT ILLEGALLY TO THE

UNITED STATES WHEN THEY

WERE CHILDREN.

AND IT WOULD PROVIDE

$25 BILLION TO SECURE THE

COUNTRY'S BORDERS.

THE PLAN WAS ANNOUNCED BY

16 SENATORS, WINNING

SUPPORT FROM MANY

DEMOCRATS.

THERE COULD BE A VOTE TON

THAT MEASURE AND THREE

OTHER IMMIGRATION PLANS

TODAY.

IT IS HARD TO SAY IF ANY

OF THOSE HAVE ENOUGH TO

PASS.

> VICE PRESIDENT MIKE

PENCE HAS FIRED BACK ABOUT

COMMENTS MADE ON A POPULAR

DAYTIME TALK SHOW, WHERE A

HOST BASHED HIM.

JOY BAYHAR SAID, IT IS ONE

THING TO TALK TO JESUS.

IT IS ANOTHER THING WHEN

JESUS TALKS TO YOU.

SHE CONTINUED BY SAYING,

THAT IS CALLED MENTAL

ILLNESS, IF I'M NOT

CORRECT.

PENCE CALLED THAT AN

INSULT TO THE VAST

MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WHO

CHERISH THEIR FAITH.

I THINK IT DEMONSTRATES

HOW OUT OF TOUCH SOME IN

THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA ARE

WITH THE FAITH AND VALUES

OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,

THAT YOU COULD HAVE A

MAJOR NETWORK LIKE ABC

PERMIT A FORUM FOR

INVECTIVE AGAINST RELIGION

LIKE THAT.

I CALL THEM OUT ON IT, NOT

BECAUSE OF WHAT WAS SAID

ABOUT ME, BUT IT IS JUST

SIMPLY WRONG FOR ABC TO

HAVE A TELEVISION PROGRAM

THAT EXPRESSES THAT KIND

OF RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE.

John: YOU CAN SEE

PENCE'S FULL REMARKS ON

OUR WEBSITE, cbn.com

PAT?

Pat: I COMMEND THE

VICE PRESIDENT FOR HIS

BOLD STATEMENT.

LISTEN, YOU READ THE NEW

TESTAMENT AND YOU READ THE

OLD TESTAMENT -- I WAS

LOOKING AT TODAY, ISAIAH

SAID, "THE WORD OF THE

LORD CAME TO ME SAYING,

EVERY PROPHET IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT HAS HEARD FROM

GOD, EVERY WRITER IN THE

NEW TESTAMENT HAS HEARD

FROM GOD, ALL OF THE GREAT

MEN OF FAITH HAVE HEARD

FROM GOD."

AND FOR THESE NO NOTHINGS

TO SOUND OFF LIKE THIS AND

SAY IT IS MENTAL ILLNESS,

THAT MEANS THEY'RE

CONDEMNING EVERY SINGLE

AUTHOR OF THE WHOLE BIBLE.

AND THAT SHOWS A TYPE OF

INTOLERANCE THAT WE JUST

CANNOT STAND.

YOU KNOW, THIS ISN'T --

YOU'RE NOT LOOKING AT SOME

CRAZY GUY OFF IN SOME

COMMUNE SOME PLACE.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE MEN

AND WOMEN WHO WROTE THE

SCRIPTURES THAT WE ALL

ADMIRE.

AND FOR ABC TO BE MAKING

FUN OF THAT, THEY OUGHT TO

BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

THEY OUGHT TO PULL THAT

SHOW OFF THE AIR.

IT IS TIME TO STAND UP FOR

THIS KIND OF -- AGAINST

THIS KIND OF INTOLERANCE.

JOHN, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

John: PAT, IN HEALTH

NEWS, PROCESSED FOODS

RAISE THE RISKS OF CANCER

BECAUSE OF HIGHER LEVELS

OF FAT, INCLUDING

SATURATED FAT, SALT, AND

SUGAR, ALONG WITH

ADDITIVES.

THOSE ARE THE FINDINGS

FROM THE STUDY, WHICH SAYS

EATING 10% MORE ULTRA

PROCESSED FOODS LEADS TO A

12% HIGHER RISK OF CANCER.

THAT INCLUDES THINGS LIKE

CAKES, SUGARY CANDY AND

PROCESSED MEATS.

EXPERTS RECOMMEND A

BALANCED DIET WITH A

LITTLE JUNK FOOD.

THE LEVEL IS HIGH BECAUSE

FOR A LOT OF FAMILIES,

PROCESSED FOODS ACCOUNTS

FOR A LOT OF WHAT THEY BUY

AT THE GROCERY STORE.

Pat: THE TRUTH IS

PROCESSED FOODS ARE NOT

THAT GOOD FOR YOU.

WE NEED TO EAT VEGETABLES.

WE NEED TO EAT MEAT THAT

IS WITHOUT ALL KINDS OF AT

TIFFS.

ADDITIVES.

I'M PLEASED TO REPORT, I

WEIGHED TODAY AND I'M

ABOUT THREE POUNDS LESS

THAN I WAS WHEN I WAS

ABOUT 15 YEARS OLD.

THAT'S GOOD, HUH?

Terry: WOW!

YOU BETTER STOP THAT.

Pat: NO, I WON'T STOP

THAT.

Terry: 15, REALLY?

IS THAT DELIBERATE?

Pat: I JUST -- I'M

EATING HEALTHY.

AND EATING HEALTHY YOU

LOSE WEIGHT.

Terry: WELL, YOU LOOK

GREAT.

WE'RE SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK.

Pat: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

I DID HAVE A STROKE, AND

IT HAPPENED REAL FAST, AND

I'M GETTING OVER THE

EFFECTS OF IT THA.

THAT WAS A MIRACLE.

Terry: THAT WAS A

MIRACLE, FOR WHICH WE ARE

GRATEFUL.

Pat: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

Terry: SOME PEOPLE

HAVE LABELLED THE LIFE OF

OUR PRESIDENT, BEFORE HE

BECAME PRESIDENT, A

PLAYBOY, BUT IS HE

ACTUALLY A MAN OF FAITH?

DAVID BRODY INVESTIGATES,

AND HE'LL REVEAL WHAT HE

DISCOVERED.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, OUR

FEARLESS REPORTER, DAVID

BRODY, HAS WRITTEN A

MONUMENTAL BOOK CALLED "A

SPIRITUAL BIOGRAPHY" AND

IT'S CALLED "THE FAITH OF

DONALD J.TRUMP."

AND HERE IT IS.

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THE FAITH OF DONALD TRUMP.

WHAT DOES DONALD TRUMP

FEEL ABOUT GOD AND JESUS

CHRIST AND THE BIBLE?

Reporter: THROUGHOUT

THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION AND DURING HIS

FIRST YEAR IN OFFICE,

DONALD TRUMP'S FAITH HAS

BEEN THE SUBJECT OF MUCH

DEBATE.

IS THE PRESIDENT A TRUE

BELIEVER, A SEEKER, OR A

POLITICAL OPPORTUNIST AT

HEART?

IN A NEW BOOK, "THE FAITH

OF DONALD J. TRUMP, A

SPIRITUAL BIOGRAPHY,"

DAVID BRODY AND COAUTHOR

SCOTT LAMB, RECONSTRUCT

TRUMP'S SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

FROM CHILDHOOD TO PRESENT.

RELYING ON EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEWS ON THE

PRESIDENT HIMSELF, AND THE

AUTHORS REVEAL A SIDE

NEVER BEFORE FULLY

EXPLORED.

Pat: OUR OWN DAVID

BRODY JOINING US TO TALK

ABOUT HIS NEW BOOK THAT

CAME OUT YESTERDAY, I

BELIEVE?

David: TUESDAY, YES.

Pat: I WANT TO ASK

YOU ABOUT THIS CYRUS

THING.

SOMEBODY WAS TALKING IN A

GROUP OF PREACHERS TALKING

ABOUT HIM BEING CYRUS.

DO YOU WANT TO TELL US

WHAT THAT MEANS AND WHAT

HIS REACTION WAS?

David: THAT'S RIGHT.

IT WAS LANCE WALLNAU, A

PASTOR WHO WAS IN A

MEETING WITH DONALD TRUMP

IN NEW YORK WITH A BUNCH

OF PASTORS, AND BASICALLY

DARYL SCOTT, ANOTHER

PASTOR FRIEND OF DONALD

TRUMP, PASSES IT OVER TO

LANCE WALLNAU, AND HE

STARTS TO TELL TRUMP ABOUT

HOW HE IS A MODERN-DAY

CYRUS.

AND CYRUS MAYBE WASN'T THE

MOST GODLY MAN IN THE

WORLD, FOR SURE.

BUT FOR SUCH A TIME AS

THIS, A CYRUS.

THE POINT HERE IS THAT GOD

DOES USE IMPERFECT PEOPLE

TO ACCOMPLISH HIS PERFECT

WILL.

I THINK DONALD TRUMP IS A

LIVING EMBODIMENT OF THAT.

Pat: DOES HE IDENTIFY

WITH THAT?

David: HE EMBRACED

IT.

IN THE SENSE HE UNDERSTOOD

THE PARALLELS.

IN THIS BOOK, WE SEE A LOT

OF THIS RESPECT FOR CLERGY

THAT HE HAS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, DARYL

SCOTT, THAT PASTOR I TOLD

YOU ABOUT, TALKS ABOUT

WHEN HE IS IN THE ROOM

WITH PASTORS, HE ADOPTS

THE POSITION OF THE

LESSER, RATHER THAN THE

GREATER.

IT IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT

SIDE OF DONALD TRUMP.

I WAS ON WITH CHRIS COMO,

AND I SAID, IF THERE IS A

30 SECOND SOUND BYTE,

YOU'RE GIVEN 10 SECONDS OF

THAT SOUND BYTE WITH

RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA,

AND THIS BOOK IS THE OTHER

20 SECONDS OF THE SOUND

BYTE.

Pat: IS DONALD TRUMP

ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY?

David: 100% HE IS ON

A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY.

I CAN TELL YOU THERE IS

STORY AFTER STORY IN THIS

BOOK ABOUT HIM COMING FACE

TO FACE WITH -- I LIKE TO

CALL IT "THE JESUS PLUS

NOTHING CROWD," THE

PENTECOSTAL FOLKS THAT ARE

ALL AROUND HEIM.

HIM.

I CAN TELL YOU HE IS

HEARING THAT MESSAGE LOUD

AND CLEAR.

THE MAIN LINE PRESBYTERIAN

CHURCH CAME ON A LITTLE

LATER, AND SO IT IS NOT

WHAT HE IS USED TO

HEARING, BUT HE IS HEARING

IT NOW.

AND THERE IS EVIDENCE TO

SUGGEST THAT, INDEED, IT

IS GETTING THROUGH.

IT IS THE FAITH OF DONALD

TRUMP.

THIS IS NOT AN APOLOGETICS

BOOK FOR DONALD TRUMP.

BUT I CAN TELL YOU THIS,

THE TWITTER FEED THAT YOU

SEE ALL OF THE TIME,

THAT'S THE NEW YORK 40

YEARS OF DONALD TRUMP

BEING OUT THERE IN THE

PUBLIC EYE, AND HE IS A

BRAWLER, AS YOU KNOW.

BUT THERE IS ANOTHER SIDE,

NOT THE TWITTER SIDE, BUT

THE MORE COMPASSIONATE

SIDE OF DONALD TRUMP.

THAT'S WHAT WE EXPLORE IN

THIS BOOK.

TIMES WHERE HE IS TELLING

PASTORS, I LOVE YOU.

SAYING THE WORDS "I'M

SORRY,SORRY," MULTIPLE TIMES.

MY WIFE AND I HAD DINNER

WITH HIM DURING THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL, AND HE

INTERRUPTED MELANIA A

COUPLE OF TIMES, AND THEN

HE SAID, I'M SORRY, HONEY,

GO AHEAD.

SO THAT'S PRETTY

REMARKABLE.

IT IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT

SIDE TO DONALD TRUMP THAT

YOU SEE.

Pat: THAT IS

REFLECTED IN YOUR BOOK, I

PRESUME, RIGHT?

David: IT IS.

THERE IS ACTUALLY PLENTY

OF STORIES TO TALK ABOUT.

I WILL SAY THIS -- WHAT IS

INTERESTING, AND YOU MIGHT

GET A KICK OUT OF THIS --

HIS FATHER, OF COURSE --

THERE ARE GERMAN ROOTS.

THE LUTHERANISM IS ON THE

FATHER SIDE, AND ON THE

MOTHER'S SIDE, THERE IS

THE PROTESTANT.

AND IT TURNS OUT ON HIS

MOTHER'S SIDE, WHO ARE THE

MCLEODS, APPARENTLY THERE

IS SOME D.N.A. IN THERE

THAT SUGGESTS THERE IS

SOME VIKING BLOOD IN

DONALD TRUMP ON HIS

MOTHER'S SIDE.

Pat: HE MOTHER WAS A

GODLY WOMAN, AND SHE MUST

HAVE HAD A PROFOUND

INFLUENCE ON HIM?

David: SHE DID.

HE COMES INTO TRUMP TOWER

INTO THE ROOM AND HOLDS UP

HIS PRESBYTERIAN

CONFIRMATION PICTURE, AND

SHOWS THE BIBLE THAT HE

GOT WITH HIS MOTHER'S

PICTURE.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE MADE

A BIG DEAL OF HOW HE IS

PANDERING TO EVANGELICALS.

LOOK, PAT, YOU KNOW --

DONALD TRUMP, EVEN IF HE

WANTED TO PANDER, HE

WOULDN'T KNOW HOW TO

PANDER TO EVANGELICALS.

THERE WAS A GREAT STORY IN

THAT BOOK AND I ASKED HIM

ABOUT GOING TO CHURCH.

AND HE GOES, I GO TO

CHURCH ON CHRISTMAS AND I

GO TO CHURCH ON EASTER,

AND I TRY TO MAKE IT ON A

FEW SUNDAYS.

THAT'S PROBABLE TH PROBABLY NOT THE

BEST ANSWER FOR A

CHRISTIAN BROADCAST

NETWORK.

BUT THAT'S THE CHARM OF

DONALD TRUMP.

Pat: HE SAID HE FELT

THE REAL WEIGHT OF THAT

OFFICE ON HIM.

CAN YOU DESCRIBE THAT.

David: IT WAS THE

THIRD INTERVIEW HE DID,

AND HE TALKED ABOUT

NEEDING GOD MORE AS BEING

PRESIDENT AS NEVER BEFORE.

HE DOES THESE LUNCHES, AND

MYSELF AND JENNA BROWDER,

AND WHAT HE TOLD US WAS

FASCINATING.

HE SAID, AS A BUSINESSMAN,

YOU DON'T NEED HEART.

BUT AS PRESIDENT, I'M

FINDING OUT YOU NEED A

WHOLE LOT OF HEART.

THAT IS A SHIFT FOR DONALD

TRUMP, THAT YOU NEED HEART

AND GOD EVEN MORE.

AND WHAT DID WE SEE AT THE

NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST,

PAT?

WE ACTUALLY SAW IN THE

SECOND SPEECH, INSTEAD OF

TALKING ABOUT APPRENTICE

RATINGS, HE TALKED LESS OF

HIMSELF AND MORE ABOUT

GOD.

WE'RE STARTING TO SEE A

SHIFT.

Pat: ONE THING, I

GUESS IN CLOSING, NOBODY

EXPECTED DONALD TRUMP --

HE HAS BEEN MARRIED THREE

TIMES, HE'S A PLAYBOY,

"THE ART OF THE DEAL" --

HE IS A HARD-NOSED

DEVELOPER.

WHO WOULD HAVE EXPECTED

THIS RELIGIOUS SIDE OF HIM

TO COME FORWARD?

David: RIGHT.

THERE AND ARE SO MANY

EVANGELICALS WHO BELIEVE

HE HAS BEEN PUT IN THE

OFFICE FOR SUCH A TIME AS

THIS.

BISHOP WAYNE JACKSON,

LIFE-LONG DEMOCRAT, DONALD

TRUMP IS SPEAKING AT HIS

CHURCH IN DETROIT.

BEFORE HE GETS TO THE

CHURCH, HE GETS OUT OF THE

CAR, AND JACKSON TELLS ME,

WHEN HE GOT OUT OF THE

CAR, HE SAID THE SPIRIT OF

THE LORD TOLD HIM, THAT'S

THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES RIGHT THERE.

THAT'S A DEMOCRAT SAYING

THAT.

THERE IS SOMETHING GOING

ON SPIRITUALLY THAT YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO FIND ON CNN,

FOR SURE, AND THE GRACE

PRINCIPAL APPLIES HERE.

YOU KNOW WHAT, WARTS AND

ALL, DONALD TRUMP NEEDS

GOD, WE ALL NEED GOD, AND

IT'S VERY, VERY IMPORTANT

FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND

THAT.

Pat: I RAN FOR

PRESIDENT, AND I'VE

WATCHED THESE GUYS OVER

THE YEARS.

AND THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

PRESIDENT, THAT I'M

ACAWAREOF, THAT HAS EMBRACED THE

EVANGELICAL PERSPECTIVE

AND EVANGELICAL AGENDA THE

WAY TRUMP HAS.

David: HE IS THE

MOST PRO--FRIENDLY

EVANGELICAL PRESIDENT WE

HAVE EVER HAD.

THAT IS BAR NONE.

WE HAVE THAT IN THE BOOK,

STORIES WITH YOU IN THE

BOOK.

I SUGGEST READING IT -- I

KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO READ

IT.

HE IS A PIECE OF WORK

BECAUSE HE IS FROM NEW

YORK.

NO ONE IS MAKING AN

APOLOGY TOUR FOR DONALD

TRUMP, BUT HE IS ON A

JOURNEY.

Pat: HE IS A GOOD

FRIEND AND A WONDERFUL

GUY.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "THE

FAITH OF DONALD TRUMP:

THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY."

David: IT IS OVER

300 PAGES, AND THE

LIBERALS SAY THEY GOT A

COPY OF BOOK, AND THERE IS

A BLANK PAGE.

BUT IT IS OVER 300 PAGES.

Pat: I HOPE IT IS

SUCCESSFUL.

YOU CAN GET A COPY OF IT.

YOU REALLY NEED TO READ

IT.

THANK YOU, MY FRIEND.

David: THANK YOU.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

Pat: TERRY, WHAT'S

NEXT?

Terry: UP NEXT, TIME

FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF YOUR

QUESTIONS, HONEST ANSWERS.

KIMBERLY ASKS, "IS WRONG

THAT I DON'T HATE SATAN.

I HAVE PITY ON HIM."

PAT'S IN THE HOT SEAT

AFTER THIS.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Wendy: STILL

AHEAD...THE GOLD MEDALLIST

WHO WERE YO WAS ONCE GIVEN SIX

MONTHS TO LIVE, AND CAME

BACK STRONGER.

THIS JOURNEY HAS BEEN

MIRACULOUS.

Wendy: SCOTT HAMILTON

TALKS ABOUT FINISHING

FIRST.

LATER ON TODAY'S SHOW.

Terry: WELL, IT'S

TIME FOR "YOUR QUESTIONS;

HONEST ANSWERS".

THIS FIRST ONE COMES FROM

KIMBERLY, WHO SAYS, "IS IT

WRONG THAT I CANNOT HATE

SATAN.

I DISLIKE HIM AND HIS

WAYS, BUT I FEEL PITY FOR

HIM.

HE HAD THIS WONDERFUL

RELATIONSHIP FROM GOD AND

NOW HE IS SEPARATED FROM

OUR FATHER FOREVER.

IS IT WRONG TO FEEL THIS

WAY?

I JUST CAN'T HATE."

Pat: I THINK IT IS A

GOOD THING YOU CAN'T HATE.

I THINK IT IS AN IMPORTANT

THING FOR CHRISTIANS IF

THEY CAN'T HATE.

AT THIS POINT, I

PERSONALLY CANNOT HOLD A

GRUDGE.

I CAN'T DO IT.

I CAN'T DO IT.

YOU KNOW?

AND THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT

THEY DIDN'T BRING A

ACCUSATION AGAINST SATAN

BUT SAID THE LORD REBUKE

YOU.

I DON'T THINK THAT GOD

CALLS US TO HATE ANYBODY,

INCLUDING SATAN.

BUT I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE

TO GET TOO INVOLVED WITH

SATAN.

HE'S A FALLEN ANGEL.

HE WAS THE ANOINTED

CHERIB, COVERING THE VERY

HOLINESS OF GOD, AND HE

WALKED WITH THE STONES OF

FIRE.

HE WAS ON THE MOUNTAIN

WITH GOD.

HE WAS THE HIGHEST OF ALL

CREATED BEINGS, AND HIS

SIN WAS, VERY SIMPLY, THAT

HE WANTED TO TAKE OVER.

HE THOUGHT HE COULD DO A

BETTER JOB THAN GOD.

THAT'S WHY PRIDE IS THE

ORIGIN OF ALL SIN.

THE DEVIL HAD THAT.

BUT GOD DOESN'T CALL YOU

TO HATE ANYBODY, SO DON'T

WORRY ABOUT IT.

Terry: THIS IS A

VIEWER WHO SAYS, "PAT, MY

HUSBAND SEEMS TO HAVE A

SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH

A LADY AT OUR CHURCH, AND

I'M NOT COMFORTABLE ABOUT

IT.

IS IT OKAY FOR MY HUSBAND

TO HAVE THAT SPECIAL

FRIENDSHIP WITH THIS

WOMAN?

AM I SINNING BY BEING

JEALOUS ABOUT IT?"

Pat: LISTEN, YOUR

HUSBAND HAS SWORN AN OATH

THAT YOU ARE HIS WIFE, AND

HE IS YOUR HUSBAND.

AND IN SICKNESS AND IN

HEALTH AND ALL OF THE

OTHER STUFF, HE'S GOING TO

BE YOUR PROTECTOR, AND

HE'S GOING TO BE THERE FOR

YOU.

HE SHOULD NOT BE HAVING

ANY KIND OF A RELATIONSHIP

WITH SOMEBODY ELSE, EVEN

IF IT IS A FRIENDSHIP OR

AN EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT.

HE CAN BE FRIENDS WITH A

LOT OF PEOPLE, BUT NOT THE

KIND OF STUFF YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT, A SPECIAL

RELATIONSHIP.

THAT IS A TYPE OF

ADULTERY, AND IT IS WRONG.

AND YOU'RE NOT WRONG TO

WANT HIM TO FULFILL THE

VOWS THAT HE MADE TO YOU.

THAT'S NORMAL.

OKAY.

Terry: THIS IS ROBIN

WHO SAYS, "WHEN A DEMON IS

CAST OUT OF A PERSON,

WHERE DOES IT GO?

DOES IT FIND SOMEONE ELSE

TO POSSESS?"

Pat: WHAT DOES THE

BIBLE SAY?

WHEN THEY COME OUT OF YOU,

THEY GO INTO DESERT

PLACES, SEEKING WHERE THEY

CAN DWELL.

AND THEN THEY FIND THE

OTHER PERSON THAT THEY'VE

BEEN CAST OUT FROM SWEPT

AND GARNISHED, AND THEY GO

BACK IN AND INHABIT AGAIN,

AND THE STATE OF THAT

PERSON IS WORSE THAN IT

WAS IN THE FIRST.

SO WHAT DOES A DEMON DO?

YOU CAST HIM OUT AND HE

WANTS TO GET BACK WHERE HE

LEFT.

THAT MEANS THE PERSON

NEEDS TO FILL THEMSELVES

WITH THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT BECAUSE THE

DEVIL -- WHERE DOES HE GO?

HE WANTS TO GET BACK WHERE

HE LEFT.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

Terry: DEBRA ASKS, "I

HAVE ANXIETY ATTACKS AND

THEY JUST STARTED OUT OF

NOWHERE.

I THOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE I

WAS LONESOME.

I NEED HELP SORTING THESE

OUT.

WHAT CAN I DO?

I QUIT TAKING ALL OF THE

MEDICATIONS.

PLEASE GIVE ME SOME

ADVICE."

Pat: I'M NOT A

PHYSIOLOGIST, I'M NOT A

PSYCHIATRIST, AND I'M NOT

AN M.D. SO YOU'RE ASKING

FOR MEDICAL ADVICE THAT

I'M NOT SURE I'M PREPARED

TO GIVE YOU.

BUT WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

THE BIBLE SAYS, "PERFECT

LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR, FOR

FEAR HAS TORMENT."

YOU NEED TO FILL YOURSELF

WITH LOVE.

YOU NEED TO LOVE GOD.

YOU NEED TO LOVE OTHER

PEOPLE.

YOU NEED TO GET AROUND YOU

PEOPLE WHO YOU CAN LOVE

AND HAVE A FELLOWSHIP WITH

AND TOGETHEWITH, AND TOGETHER YOU CAN

OVERCOME THIS --

APPARENTLY IT IS AN

ANXIETY ATTACK YOU'RE

HAVING.

ISOLATING YOURSELF IS THE

WRONG WAY TO GO.

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT

FEAR, AND THAT'S WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS, AND FEAR HAS

TORMENT.

SO SEEK PERFECT LOVE.

Terry: THIS IS JOE

WHO SAYS, "WHEN WE GO HOME

TO BE WITH THE LORD, I'M

WONDERING IF WE'LL GET TO

SPEND LONG STRETCHES OF

TIME WITH GOD, JUST THE

FATHER AND US."

Pat: I BELIEVE WE'LL

HAVE ALL ETERNITY TO DO

JUST THAT.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS A

WAY OF MAKING HIMSELF

AVAILABLE TO EVERYBODY.

THERE WILL BE MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE IN HEAVEN, AND HE

IS GOING TO BE AVAILABLE

TO ALL OF THEM.

THE THING IS, YOU CAN

FORGET WHAT HAPPENS AFTER

YOU DIE.

HOW ABOUT NOW?

YOU CAN GO TO GOD NOW.

YOU CAN SPEND A LONG TIME

WITH GOD.

YOU CAN TALK TO HIM.

YOU CAN LISTEN TO HIM.

YOU CAN READ HIS WORD.

YOU CAN MEDITATE ON HIM.

YOU CAN DO IT NOW.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT

UNTIL YOU DIE.

Terry: OKAY, THIS IS

ELIJAH WHO SAYS, "CAN YOU

EXPLAIN THE MEANING OF THE

SCRIPTURE IN MATTHEW 5:

18: "I SAY TO YOU UNTIL

HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS

AWAY, ONE TIDDLE WILL BY

NO MEANS PASS FROM THE LAW

UNTIL ALL IS FULFILLED."

Pat: JESUS FULFILLED

THE LAW.

IN TERMS OF DIETARY LAWS,

THE BIBLE SAYS HE

FULFILLED THIS.

HE WAS THE SACRIFICE.

HE FULFILLED THE NECESSARY

SACRIFICE FOR SIN.

HE HIMSELF WAS THE

FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW.

IT HAS BEEN FULFILLED IN

JESUS.

AND, YOU KNOW, HE BORE THE

SACRIFICE FOR SIN.

HE DID ALL OF THE THINGS

THAT WERE NEEDED.

HE LIVED A PERFECT LIFE,

AND ON AND ON AND ON.

BUT THERE IS NO QUESTION

THAT HE DID THAT.

HAS IT BEEN FULFILLED?

I THINK YES.

BUT THERE WERE CERTAIN

PRINCIPLES THAT WERE

EMBODIED IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, IN THE 10

COMMANDMENTS, AND

CERTAINLY IN THE SERMON ON

THE MOWPT MOUNT, THAT HE

ENDURED, BECAUSE THEY ARE

STILL ENORMITY FOR US

TODAY.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

THE LAW IS PRIMARY.

HE SAID, IF YOU LOVE ME,

KEEP MY COMMANDMENT, AND

MY COMMANDMENT ISN'T

BURDENSOME.

MY COMMANDMENT IS TO LOVE

EACH OTHER.

Terry: OKAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AND THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE LOVE GETTING QUESTIONS

FROM YOU.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE

ANSWERS.

WHEN AMANDEEP FOUND OUT

SHE WAS PREGNANT WITH HER

FIRST CHILD, SHE WAS

THRILLED.

SHE WAS ALSO SCARED.

SHE HAD NO IDEA HOW SHE

WAS GOING TO MAKE HER LONG

JOURNEY TO TO GET WATER

THREE TIMES A DAY, NOT

ONLY PUSHING A HEAVY CART,

BUT NOW ALSO CARRYING A

BABY.

Reporter: AFTER

AMANDEEP GOT MARRIED AND

MOVED TO A SMALL VILLAGE

IN INDIA, TRE TREKS TO A

DISTANT WATER PUMP BECAME

A DAILY ROUTINE.

WE HAD TO GO SO FAR TO

GET WATER.

I'M NOT USED TO IT.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR

ME.

IT MAKES ME FEEL SO

HOPELESS.

Reporter: THEY MAKE

THIS TRIP A MINIMUM OF

THREE TIMES A DAY.

TODAY IN INDIA, IT IS

GOING TO BE OVER 110.

ON TOP OF THAT, THAT

SHALLOW WELL PUMP IS RIGHT

BESIDE ALL OF THIS RAW

SEWAGE.

SHE HAS A LOT OF TIME TO

THINK AS SHE MAKES THOSE

TRIPS.

WHEN AMANDEEP FOUND OUT

SHE WAS PREGNANT, SHE WAS

BOTH HAPPY AND SCARED.

I HAVE MADE THE LONG

JOURNEY BACK AND FORTH TO

THE PUMP, AND I WORRY

ABOUT MY BABY.

WILL MY BABY BE HEALTHY

DRINKING THIS DIRTY WATER?

HOW CAN I CARRY A NEWBORN

BABY IN THE HEAT ALL THE

WAY THERE AND BACK.

HOW CAN WE GIVE A CHILD A

GOOD LIFE WHEN WE BARELY

HAVE ENOUGH FOR TWO OF US.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND

WORKS IN A BRICKYARD, AND

ONLY MAKES ENOUGH TO BUY

FOOD FOR HIM AND HIS WIFE.

THEN ONE DAY THE LOCAL

PASTOR CAME TO VISIT THEM.

I TOLD HIM ABOUT OUR

PROBLEM, AND A FEW DAYS

LATER, CBN CAME TO DO A

SURVEY, AND THEN THEY DUG

A WELL IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE VILLAGE.

IT IS RIGHT BESIDE OUR

HOUSE.

Reporter: IT IS

WONDERFUL TO BE HERE ON

DEDICATION DAY, WHEN

EVERYBODY IS GATHERED TO

CELEBRATE AND THANK GOD

FOR THIS CLEAN WATER.

AND TODAY IS EXTRA

SPECIAL, HAVING THE GRAND

OPENING OF THE RAJA

GENERAL STORE, AND I GET

TO BE ONE OF THEIR FIRST

COSTUMERS.

WE BUILT AMANDEEP HER VERY

OWN SHOP, RIGHT OUTSIDE

THEIR HOUSE, AND BESIDE

THE NEW VILLAGE WELL.

I'M VERY HAPPY TODAY,

JUST AS HAPPY AS THE DAY I

GOT MARRIED.

Reporter: A FEW

MONTHS LATER, THE CBN

INDIA TEAM VISITED

AMANDEEP AND MEL MET THEIR NEW

BABY.

AND WE ALSO NOTICED HER

LITTLE SHOP HAD BECOME A

THRIVING BUSINESS.

WE HAVE CLEAN WATER,

AND WE'RE EARNING MORE

THAN ENOUGH O TO TAKE CARE TO TAKE CARE

OF OUR BABY AND OUR NEW

HOME.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY

WHO HELPED US, WHO REACHED

OUT ALL THE WAY FROM

AMERICA AND TRULY BEF BLESSED

US.

Terry: "700 CLUB"

MEMBERS, YOU BRING SUCH

HOPE INTO THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE.

BUT BEYOND THAT HOPE IS

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR

CHANGE, THE OPPORTUNITY TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE, TO BE

ELEVATED.

TO BE HEARD, TO FEEL

SIGNIFICANT.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THREE

TIMES A DAY HAVING TO GO

FOR WATER IN BUCKETS?

I CAN'T IMAGINE THAT.

WE'RE DRILLING WATER WELLS

LIKE THIS FOR INDIVIDUALS,

FOR COMMUNITIES, ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT YOUR

MEMBERSHIP IN "THE 700

CLUB" MAKES POSSIBLE.

ALL KINDS OF OTHER THINGS

HAPPEN.

SURGERIES FOR PEOPLE WHO

CAN'T AFFORD TO HAVE THEM,

BUT HAVE VERY CURABLE

DISEASE.

YOU'RE A PART OF ALL OF

THAT AROUND THE WORLD.

HELPING ORPHANS -- THAT'S

A PART OF WHAT YOU DO WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

YOU CAN DO IT FROM THE

COMFORT OF YOUR OWN LIVING

ROOM, BUT I THINK GOD DOES

CALL US, WHEN HE BLESSES

US, TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, I WANT TO YOU

INVITE YOU TO JOIN WITH

THE REST OF US.

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH FOR A GENERAL CLUB

MEMBERSHIP.

DO SOMETHING TODAY TO MAKE

A DIFFERENCE.

WHEN YOU CALL, OUR WAY OF

SAYING THANK YOU FOR

CARING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE

IS TO SEND YOU PAT'S

LATEST D.V.D., WHICH IS

CALLED "ANSWERED PRAYER."

YOU'RE GOING TO BE BLESSED

BY THIS.

HE TALKS ABOUT HOW PRAYER

HAS MADE A DIFFERENCE IN

HIS LIFE OVER THE MANY

YEARS HE HAS BEEN IN

MINISTRY, AND HOW WE CAN

PRAY AFFECTIVELY.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS THE

FERVENT PRAYER OF A

RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILS US

MUCH.

> STILL AHEAD, HE IS AN

OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALLIST AND

A FOUR TIME WORLD

CHAMPION, AND BELIEVE IT

OR NOT, HE HATES

COMPETITION.

I HATED EVERY SINGLE

ONE.

I COULD GO OUT AND FALL

FLAT ON MY FACE.

I COULD BE MOCKED AND

RIDICULED -- ALL OF THOSE

THINGS GO THROUGH MY MIND

EVERY TIME.

Terry: SCOTT HAMILTON

SHARES HOW HE FOUND THE

WILL TO WIN.

THAT'S NEXT.

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

MITT ROMNEY IS DELAYING

PLANS TO ANNOUNCE HIS RUN

FOR THE U.S. SENATE IN THE

WAKE OF THE TRAGIC

SHOOTING IN FLORIDA.

HE WAS GOING TO FORMALLY

LAUNCH HIS CAMPAIGN TODAY

BUT SAYS HE WANTS TO

POSTPONE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT

OUT OF RESPECT FOR THE

VICTIMS OF THE SHOOTING

AND THEIR FAMILIES.

ROMNEY IS SEEKING TO

REPLACE RETIRING SENATOR

ORRIN HATCH FROM UTAH.

> THE UNITED STATES NAVY

IS PULLING ITS TROOPS OUT

OF IRAQ, BUT IT WILL STILL

BE SENDING MONEY.

IRAQ WILL NEED MORE THAN

$88 MILLION FOR PARTS OF

THE COUNTRY DESTROYED BY

ISIS, THAT IS ACCORDING TO

THE COUNTRY'S MINISTER OF

PLANNING.

REX TILLERSON SAYS THE

U.S. PLANS TO LOAN

$3 BILLION TO IRAQ TO HELP

THEM REBUILD.

HE IS ALSO URGING OTHER

COUNTRIES TO SUPPORT AS

WELL.

> REMEMBER, YOU CAN

ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY VISITING OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MUCH

MORE OF TODAY'S "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: IN 1993, THE

ASSOCIATED PRESS RELEASED

A LIST OF AMERICA'S MOST

POPULAR ATHLETES.

FAR AHEAD OF NAMES SUCH AS

MICHAEL JORDAN AND JOANNE JOE

MONTANA WAS THAT OF SCOTT

HAMILTON, AND WITH GOOD

REASON, TOO.

HE OVERCAME ENORMOUS ODDS

BEFORE WINNING OLYMPIC

GOLD AND CAPTURING HEARTS

AROUND THE WORLD.

RECENTLY HE SAT DOWN WITH

TOTOM BUEHRING, AND HE TOLD

HIM HOW HE FOUND THE

STRENGTH TO FINISH FIRST.

Reporter: SCOTT

HAMILTON REMAINS THE MOST

RECOGNIZED MALE

FIGURESKATER IN THE WORLD.

AFTER STARING DOWN THE

BIGGEST QUADRUPLE JUMP HIS

LIFE, SURVIVING CANCER AND

THREE BRAIN TUMORS.

HE IS PARTICIPATING IN HIS

NINTH WINTER OLYMPICS.

PEOPLE WOULD ASSUME

THAT BECAUSE OF MY LAST

FOUR YEARS IN SKATING,

WHERE I WAS UNDEFEATED,

THAT I MUST REALLY LIKE

COMPETITION.

I HATE IT.

I HATED EVERY SINGLE ONE.

I WOULD GO IN GOING, WHY

AM I DOING THIS?

WHY AM I PUTTING MYSELF

THROUGH THIS?

I COULD GO OUT AND FALL

FLAT ON MY FACE, I COULD

BE MOCKED, RIDICULED --

ALL OF THOSE THINGS GO

THROUGH MY MIND EVERY

SINGLE TIME.

THEN THERE IS THIS 10

MINUTES AFTER YOU WIN,

WHERE IT'S LIKE, YES!

OKAY, WHAT'S NEXT.

Reporter: YOU HAVE TO

TEACH SKATERS HOW TO FALL?

THAT'S THE FIRST THING

YOU DO.

NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY

ARE, NO MATTER WHAT, IT'S

HERE IS HOW YOU FALL AND

HERE IS HOW YOU GET UP.

BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO.

AND IF YOU DON'T FALL, IT

IS LIKE YOU DON'T EVEN

TRY.

YOU'VE GOT TO GET OUT

THERE AND REALLY FEEL THE

AIR AND FEEL YOUR BLADES

UNDER YOU, FEEL THE ICE

UNDER YOU.

AND IF YOU DIDN'T FALL,

YOU DIDN'T TRY.

WELL, I FELL 41,600 TIMES.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

DO?

WELL, YOU GET UP 41,600

TIMES.

FAILURE IS THE GREATEST

THING TO OWN, IN MY

OPINION.

BUT MY VICTORIES HAVEN'T

ALWAYS BEEN ON PODIUMS.

MY VICTORIES HAVE BEEN

OVER HEALTH CONCERNS.

MY VICTORIES HAVE BEEN

OVER SETBACKS AND BEING

LET GO, AND ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

IT IS ABOUT PROCESSING IT

IN ORDER TO LEARN FROM IT

AND GROW FROM IT, AND NOT

JUST BE SO AFRAID OF

FAILURE THAT YOU DON'T

EVEN WANT TO TRY.

WELCOME TO MY OFFICE.

EVERYTHING IN THIS ROOM

MEANS SOMETHING, NOTHING

MORE THAN THIS.

THIS IS THE ONLY REASON I

WAS ABLE TO WIN THE

OLYMPICS.

BECAUSE IT WAS A WEAKNESS

OF MINE, AND I NEEDED TO

WORK IT OUT.

I HATED FIGURES, AND I HAD

TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THEM

IN ORDER TO BECOME AN

OLYMPIC CHAMPION.

Reporter: WHAT IS THE

MOST HELPFUL INSIGHT YOU

WOULD GIVE TO A YOUNG

SKATER?

IT IS EMBRACING THE

MOMENT.

I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO

IT.

THIS HAS ALWAYS HELD ME

BACK.

WELL, THEN GET RID OF IT.

IT IS THAT CONSTANT

PURSUIT OF BEING WHO I

LEGITIMATELY AM.

I'M SHROWDED UNDER ALL OF

THIS OTHER JUNK THAT I'VE

JUST ACCUMULATED.

IT'S TIME TO START

CHIPPING AWAY AT THAT, AND

GETTING TO BE THAT PERSON

THAT GOD MADE YOU TO BE.

Reporter: WHY NOW FOR

YOU AND FOR THE AUDIENCE?

UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS

OF WINNING.

THE IDEA OF "FINISH

FIRST,FIRST: WINNING CHANGES

EVERYTHING," IT'S TRUE.

WINNING, WHATEVER THAT

LOOKS LIKE FOR YOU,

CHANGES THE TRAJECTORY AND

THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE.

MORE PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR

THAT MESSAGE.

Reporter: DO WE

CONFUSE WINNING WITH

ACHIEVING?

WINNING IS ABOUT BEING

YOUR BEST SELF.

THAT IS ITS OWN

ACHIEVEMENT.

IT IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF

OUR PURPOSE.

WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE?

HOW CAN I LEVERAGE WHAT

THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME IN

ORDER TO NOT ONLY IMPROVE

MYSELF BUT EVERYONE AROUND

ME.

TO UNDERSTAND YOUR

IDENTITY, TO UNDERSTAND

YOUR CALLING AND YOUR

PURPOSE.

Reporter: YOU WRITE

FROM THE BOOK, "AMAZINGLY,

MIRACULOUSLY.

>MIRACULOUSLY."

I'M LIVING A LIFE MORE

THAN I EVER COULD HAVE

IMAGINED.

Reporter: SCOTT, WHY

DON'T WE?

TOO MANY PEOPLE WANT

INSTANT GRATIFICATION.

AND IT'S ALL BUILT ON

SAND.

AND WHEN THE STORMS COME,

THEY ARE WASHED AWAY.

I KEEP HANGING ON TO THESE

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES, AND

IT IS ALL THERE.

I HAVE LIVED IT AND I

BELIEVE IT.

WHAT IS MISSING IN OUR

SOCIETY IS THAT PEOPLE

WILL START TO PURSUE THEIR

LIVES, NOT JUST PURSUE A

GOAL, BUT PURSUE THEIR

LIVES, PURSUE THEIR

PURPOSE, AND FALL IN LOVE

WITH WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN

YOU.

Reporter: HOW IS YOUR

HEALTH?

THIS BRAIN TUMOR THAT

KEEPS COMING BACK -- THIS

JOURNEY HAS BEEN

MIRACULOUS.

AND WHEN THEY DIAGNOSED

ME, THEY GAVE ME ALL OF

THE DIFFERENT WAYS THAT I

COULD DEAL WITH THIS

TUMOR.

PRAYER AND EXERCISE AND

JUST DO EVERYTHING I CAN.

THE LAST TWO APPOINTMENTS

WITH MY PHYSICIAN, IT HAS

SSHRUNK.

THEY DON'T SHRINK.

THEY DON'T.

GOD GETS ALL THE GLORY.

HE COULD BRING ME HOME ANY

TIME HE WANTS.

HE CAN, YOU KNOW.

THERE IS SOMETHING HE

WANTS ME TO DO.

Reporter: YOU'VE SEEN

BOTH ENDS, CURRENTLY WITH

A TUMOR THAT IS SHRINKING,

BUT YOU'VE HAD A

REOCCURRING BOUT.

YOU'VE LIVED WITH

UNCERTAINTY AND WITH HOPE.

WHAT DO YOU TELL THEM WHEN

PRAYER IS UNANSWERED?

THE VEIL BETWEEN US AND

THE LORD IS THINNEST WHEN

WE'RE IN OUR SUFFERING.

GOD IS MOST PRESENT IN OUR

LIVES WHEN WE'RE IN OUR

DEEPEST SUFFERING.

AND WE'RE HERE BY HIS

GRACE AND MERCY.

OUR BODIES ARE FRAGILE BUT

RESILIENT, TEMPORARY.

TEMPORARY.

WE LIVE OUR DAYS JOYFULLY.

WE LIVE OUR DAYS

HOPEFULLY.

WE LIVE OUR DAYS

FAITHFULLY.

AND IN DOING THAT, MY

GOODNESS, IT CHANGES THE

WORLD.

Terry: WHAT AN

INSPIRING WORD.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO HEAR MORE

FROM SCOTT HAMILTON, GET A

COPY OF HIS BOOK.

IT'S CALLED "FINISH

FIRST."

AND IT'S ABOUT SO MUCH

MORE THAN HIS CAREER.

IT IS ABOUT MANY OF THE

THINGS HE WAS JUST TALKING

ABOUT.

IT IS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

IF YOU NEED ENCOURAGEMENT

TODAY, GET A HOLD OF IT.

I THINK IT WILL INSPIRE

YOU.

> STILL AHEAD, THE

TEENAGER WHO WOUND UP IN

THE HISTORY BOOKS JUST BY

TRYING TO GO TO SCHOOL.

SHE JOINS US LIVE, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

MEL

Terry: A FEW DAYS

Terry: A FEW DAYS

AFTER SHE WAS BORN, MELBA

PATTILLO BEALS ENCOUNTERED

RACISM FOR THE FIRST TIME.

SHE WAS RUNNING A 105

FEVER, AND A NURSE SHOULD

HAVE BEEN CARING FOR HER.

BUT THAT NURSERY PLIED NURSE REPLIED, WE

DON'TED CODDLE, THE "N"

WORD, HERE.

15 YEARS LATER, AFTER

MELBA TRANSFERRED SCHOOLS,

THOSE WORDS CAME TRUE.

Reporter: IN 1957,

MELBA PATTILLO BEALS WAS

ONE OF NINE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS

CHOSEN TO INTEGRATE

CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL IN

LITTLE ROCK HIGH SCHOOL.

SHE ENDURED SHOUTING,

ANGRY, ROCK-THROWING MOBS,

AND THREATS FROM THE

K.K.K.

ONLY HER FAITH IN GOD

HELPED HER SUSTAIN.

IN 1999 SHE WAS AWARDED

THE NATION'S HIGHEST HONOR

FOR HER ROLE IN THE

INTEGRATION OF CENTRAL

HISTORY IN LITTLE ROCK,

ARKANSAS.

IN HER LATEST BOOK, "I

WILL NOT FEAR," MELBA

SHARES HER JOURNEY AND

POINTS TO FAITH AS THE

SOLUTION FOR THE WORLD

TODAY.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" MELBA

PATTILLO BEALS.

HOW WONDERFUL TO HAVE YOU.

MY BLOOD VESSEL.

BLESSING.

MY PLEASURE.

Terry: TAKE US BACK

TO 1957.

YOU WERE 15, RIGHT?

YEAH.

AND AS A CHILD, YOU DON'T

THINK THAT ADULTS BEHAVE

IN THAT WAY.

MY GRANDMOTHER AND MOTHER

HAD ONE WORD: DECORUM.

AND WE WERE AT CHURCH AT

LEAST THREE DAYS OR NIGHTS

A WEEK, AND THERE IS

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY PRAYER

WITH SOUP, AND THERE IS

SUNDAY WITHOUT EXCUSE.

AND SO FOR ME TO SEE AN

ADULT BEHAVE -- I JUST

DIDN'T BELIEVE -- I HAD

SEEN SOMEONE HANGED FROM

THE RAFTERS OF MY CHURCH,

BUT THAT WAS WHEN I WAS

FIVE.

SO 10 YEARS HAD PASSED.

AND SO IN MY HEART, THERE

WAS NO SPACE FOR ADULTS TO

BEHAVE AS THEY BEHAVED IN

THE MOB.

Terry: TALK ABOUT

WHAT THAT WAS LIKE THAT

DAY.

YOU AND EIGHT OTHER

STUDENTS WERE INTEGRATED

INTO A LITTLE ROCK,

ARKANSAS, HIGH SCHOOL.

WHEN YOU WENT TO SCHOOL

THAT DAY, DID YOU EXPECT

THAT TO HAPPEN?

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

DID YOUR PARENTS PREPARE

YOU?

NOT AT ALL.

NO ONE KNEW THAT WOULD

HAPPEN.

MY PARENTS SAID IT WOULD

BE LIKE BEING IN ANY BRAND

NEW SCHOOL, WHICH IS,

YOU'RE NEW.

YOU'RE NOT ACCEPTED THERE.

SO THEY WON'T LIKE YOUR

PONYTAIL OR THE COLOR OF

YOUR BLOUSE.

THEY MAY SAY YOU'RE NOT

WELCOME, YOU DON'T KNOW

THE ROUTINE.

BUT THERE WAS NO

PREPARATION FOR THE OTHER

PART.

BUT MY GRANDMOTHER ALWAYS

SAID, WHEREVER YOU GO, GOD

IS RIGHT WITH YOU.

SO HE IS ENJOYING THIS

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL WITH

YOU.

AND HE WILL INSTRUCT YOU

HOW TO RESPOND.

Terry: I OFTEN THINK

OF PARENTS WHO AT THAT

TIME WHO ALLOWED THEIR

CHILDREN TO BE THE

FORERUNNERS OF INTEGRATION

IN SCHOOLS BECAUSE THEY

HAD TO HAVE KNOWN.

THERE WAS ENOUGH GOING ON

IN THE WORLD.

AT 15, YOU'RE NOT PAYING

ATTENTION --

I DON'T THINK THEY DID.

I DON'T THINK MY

GRANDMOTHER OR MOTHER HAD

KNOWN.

IF THEY DID, THEY

CERTAINLY WOULDN'T HAVE

ALLOWED IT.

BUT I DON'T THINK ANYBODY

KNEW BECAUSE INITIALLY

THERE WAS NO REASON IN

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS --

THERE WAS NO

PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT, AND IN

THE 10 YEARS SINCE I HAD

BEEN FIVE, THINGS HAD

IMPROVED A LITTLE BIT.

SO THERE WAS NO REASON TO

BELIEVE THERE WOULD BE

THAT KIND OF UPRISING.

Terry: HERE YOU ARE,

YOU'RE DROPPED OFF AT

SCHOOL AND YOU'RE WALKING

IN.

WHAT WAS THAT LIKE ON THE

OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL THAT

DAY?

THE FIRST DAY THERE

WERE MOBS.

THE FRONT IS TWO BLOCKS.

AND AT FIRST THERE WERE

MOBS.

AND WE WERE DROPPED OFF,

AND MY MOTHER WAS WITH ME.

SHE WANTED TO GO WITH ME.

AND SHE WAS WEARING HER

SUIT AND CARRYING HER

BRIEFCASE BECAUSE SHE WAS

A TEACHER.

AND WE WONDERED, WHAT'S

UP.

SO WE WALKED UP BEHIND

THEM, EXPECTING THAT

THEY'RE LOOKING AT

SOMETHING ACROSS THE

STREET.

AND ULTIMATELY, WE

DISCOVERED THEY WERE

LOOKING AT ELIZABETH, ONE

OF THE NINE, A PETITE

CHILD, AND SHE WAS WALKING

ALONG.

AND AS SHE WAS WALKING

ALONG, THE GOVERNOR HAD

POSTED TROOPS, WHICH WE

THOUGHT WERE TO PROTECT

US.

NO, THEY WERE NOT.

AS SOON AS SHE WALKED TO

THE FRONT DOOR, THEY

CLOSED RANKS.

AND IN FRONT OF THEM THERE

WERE CROWDS OF PEOPLE

SCREAMING AT ELIZABETH AND

SPITTING AT HER.

Terry: EVENTUALLY YOU

GET INSIDE AND WHAT IS

THAT LIKE?

THE FIRST DAY WE DIDN'T

GET INSIDE.

WE WERE CHASED AWAY.

BECAUSE THE GROUP, AFTER

IDENTIFYING ELIZABETH,

THEY SAID, HEY, THEY'RE

RIGHT HERE.

WE DON'T HAVE TO GO ACROSS

THE STREET TO GET SOMEBODY

TO HANG.

AND I WAS SO THANKFUL TO

THOSE MEN BECAUSE -- AT

14, 15, THE MINISTER TALKS

ABOUTEABOUT GOD, AND YOUR

GRANDMOTHER TALKS ABOUT

GOD.

SHE SAID, GOD IS THERE.

I RAN AWAY JUST SCREAMING

THE LORD'S PRAYER.

I THOUGHT, NO POLICEMAN IS

GOING TO COME AND RESCUE

ME.

MY FATHER CAN'T COME.

WHO IS GOING TO COME.

ONLY MY FATHER IN HEAVEN.

WE WERE BEING CHASED BY A

GROUP OF MEN WHO HAD ROPES

AROUND THEIR SHOULDERS AND

UNDER THEIR ARMS.

AND THEY'RE TELLING US

WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO

BEFORE THEY HANG US.

I STARTED SCREAMING.

I THOUGHT, THE LOUDER I

TALK, THE FASTER GOD WILL

HEAR AND HE WILL BE HERE.

AND I THOUGHT, WILL HE

SEND AN ARMED GROUP OF

MEN.

WE ALWAYS THINK OF THE

BLESSING WITHIN OUR OWN

TERM.

AND THE BLESSING WAS

SIMPLE.

THERE WERE THESE BUSHES

ACROSS THE WALK -- TREE

BRANCHES.

AND WE WENT AROUND EITHER

END.

BUT THE MEN WHO BEHIND US

WERE SO INTENT ON GETTING

RID OF US, WENT

STRAIGHTFORWARD, AND HE

FLIPPED OVER.

AND WHEN HE FLIPPED OVER,

IT CAUSED A DOMINO EFFECT.

AND THAT HELD THEM UP A

FEW SECONDS SO WE CAN GOAT

TCOULDGET TO THE CAR.

Terry: MARTIN LUTHER

KING, JR. TOLD YOU

SOMETHING.

HE SPOKE MUCH LOWER

THAN I DID EVEN THEN.

AND I WANTED TO CORRECT

HIS SENTENCES.

I WAS ON THE EDGE.

AND I WAS COMPLAINING,

THEY DID THIS.

I HAD MY LIST.

AND HE LOOKED AT ME, AND

HE SAID, MELBA, DON'T BE

SELFISH.

YOU'RE NOT DOING THIS FOR

YOURSELF.

YOU'RE DOING THIS FOR

GENERATIONS YET UNBORN.

AND I HAD NO IDEA WHAT HE

WAS TALKING ABOUT.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

I'M MISSING THE PROM.

NOBODY IS TALKING TO ME.

THEY'RE CALLING ME UGLY

NAMES, AND YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT GENERATIONS.

AND YET THAT SENTENCE

STUCK WITH ME AND WOULD BE

WITH ME TO THIS DAY, AND

I'M 76.

WHICH IS, WHEN YOUR

INVOLVED IN A TASK THAT

INVOLVES JESUS, IT MAY NOT

DIRECTLY RELATE TO YOUR

NEEDS, BUT YOU BETTER

COMPLETE IT.

Terry: AND YOU NEEDED

THAT, THROUGH ALL THAT

FOLLOWED.

WE HAVE MERELY SKIMMED THE

SURFACE.

THE STORY IS SO MUCH

BEYOND WHAT WE CAN EVEN

SHARE HERE, BUT YOU NEED

TO READ IT.

BECAUSE IT IS PART OF OUR

AMERICAN HISTORY, AND WE

ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND IT

AND GET WHAT HAPPENED.

AND WE NEED TO LISTEN TO

WHAT MARTIN LUTHER KING

HAD TO SAY.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "I WILL

NOT FEAR: MY STORY OF A

LIFETIME OF BUILDING FAITH

UNDER FIRE," AND IT IS

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

MELBA, THANK YOU FOR BEING

HERE.

THANK YOU.

I LOVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO

TALK ABOUT THE LORD JESUS.

WHAT CAN I SAY.

Terry: IT IS A

PLEASURE AND AN HONOR TO

HAVE YOU HERE.

> HERE ARE SOME WORDS

FROM NEHEMIAH FOR YOU:

"DO NOT SORROW, FOR THE

JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR

STRENGTH."

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW ON "THE 700

CLUB."

GOD BLESS YOU.
