Wendy: COMING

UP...YOU'VE HEARD THE

SONG... *

Wendy: ...NOW HEAR

THE STORY.

ZACH WILLIAMS GOES BEHIND

THE HIT-MAKER "CHAIN

BREAKER."

> PLUS...THE SECOND

CAREER OF A LEGENDARY HEAD

COACH.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

YOU KNOW, WE JUST HAD THE

AUTHOR OF A BOOK THAT

TALKED ABOUT THE RUSSIANS,

AND RUSSIAN PRESIDENT

VLADIMIR PUTIN IS SOUNDING

KINDER AND GENTLER AFTER

HE WON A SMASHING

RE-ELECTION.

HE SAYS HE DOESN'T WANT AN

ARMS RACE, BUT HE HAS ALSO

BEEN BUILDING UP A NUCLEAR

ARSENAL, AND SOME PEOPLE

ARE CALLING HIM A NEW

CZAR.

Terry: UNDER PUTIN,

RUSSIA HAS ALSO BEEN

CARRYING OUT CYBER

WARFARE, AND IT HAS BEEN

INVOLVED IN THE FIGHTING

IN SYRIA.

BUT WHAT DOES PUTIN WANT

NEXT?

WELL, DALE HURD HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: HE'S BACK.

IT'S GOING TO BE ANOTHER

SIX YEARS OF VLADIMIR

PUTIN.

AFTER HIS RE-ELECTION TO A

FOURTH TERM AS PRESIDENT,

THE RUSSIAN STRONG MAN

SAYS HE WANTS PEACE WITH

THE WEST, BUT RELATIONS

ARE AT A POST-COLD WAR

LOW.

[YELLING]

Reporter: WHAT PUTIN

WON WASN'T REALLY AN

ELECTION BECAUSE IT WAS

RIGGED.

A MAIN OPPONENT, VICTOR

NAVALNY WAS BANNED FROM

RUNNING AFTER BEING

CHARGED WITH CORRUPTION

JUST BEFORE THE RACE

BEGAN.

VIDEO SHOWED BALLOT BOXES

BEING STUFFED FOR VLADIMIR

PUTIN.

BUT HE MIGHT HAVE WON ANY

WAY BECAUSE HE IS HUGELY

POPULAR.

THIS WOMAN SAYS, OF COURSE

I'M HAPPY WITH THE

ELECTION RESULTS BECAUSE

THERE WILL BE STABILITY.

THIS MAN SAYS, PUTIN IS A

GOOD PRESIDENT, AND I

DON'T CARE WHAT OTHERS

THINK.

BUT THE FORMER K.G.B.

OFFICER WHO ONCE CALLED

THE COLLAPSE OF THE SOVIET

UNION A TRAGEDY IS LIKELY

TO CONTINUE TO BE A

PROBLEM FOR THE WEST.

HE DENIES INVOLVEMENT IN

THE NERVE AGENT ATTACK IN

BRITAIN AGAINST A FORMER

SPY AND HIS DAUGHTER,

DESPITE THE CHARGES BY

PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY

AND SUPPORTED BY PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

President Trump: I

SPOKE WITH THE PRIME

MINISTER, AND WE ARE IN

DEEP DISCUSSIONS.

IT IS A VERY SAD

SITUATION.

Reporter: AND RUSSIA

IS CURRENTLY AT ODDS WITH

THE WEST OVER SYRIA AND

UKRAINE AND A VARIETY OF

OTHER ALLEGATIONS OF BAD

BEHAVIOR, INCLUDING CYBER

ATTACKS AND MEDDLING IN

FOREIGN ELECTIONS.

AND WHILE PUTIN NOW SAYS

HE HAS NO DESIRE FOR AN

ARMS RACE, RUSSIA

CONTINUES TO ROLL OUT NEW

AND MORE DANGEROUS WEAPONS

SYSTEMS.

THE REASON WHY WE

SHOULD BE WORRIED IS

BECAUSE RUSSIA'S NATIONAL

SECURITY GOALS, AT TIMES,

ARE AT FUNDAMENTAL ODDS

WITH THOSE OF THE UNITED

STATES.

Reporter: PUTIN IS

NOW BEING CALLED A NEW

CZAR, WHO'S AGENDA IS TO

MAKE RUSSIA GREAT AGAIN

AND WIN THE RESPECT OF THE

WORLD.

AND SOME ANALYSTS SAY

BUILDING UP HIS NUCLEAR

ARSENAL IS A CLEAR WAY TO

ACCOMPLISH THAT GOAL.

THE WEST WILL NOW HAVE TO

DEAL WITH PUTIN UNTIL AT

LEAST 2024.

RONALD REAGAN USED TO SAY

WHEN DEALING WITH THE

SOVIETS, TRUST BUT VERIFY.

PUTIN MAY SAY THEY WANTS

PEACE, BUT OTHERS ARGUE

HIS ACTIONS DON'T MATCH

HIS WORDS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, THANKS,

DALE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

THINK WITHOUT QUESTION,

PUTIN WANTS TO EXTEND THE

RUSSIAN REACH.

HE WILL OBVIOUSLY WANT TO

TAKE OVER THE BALTIC

COUNTRIES.

YOU MARK MY WORD, THAT IS

COMING NEXT.

ASTONIA, LITHUANIA,

THEY'RE ON THE BORDER OF

RUSSIA, AND IT WOULD BE SO

EASY FOR THE RUSSIANS TO

ROLL IN AND TAKE THEM

OVER, AND THEY'RE GOING TO

DO IT.

THEY WENT INTO THE UKRAINE

AND TOOK A LARGE CHUNK OF

THE UKRAINE.

THEY'RE IN THERE, BUT THEY

HAVEN'T POSSESSED IT, BUT

THEY TOOK OVER THE CRIMEA,

AWAY FROM THE UKRAINE.

AND THEY'VE BUILT UP

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

THEY CLAIM THEY HAVE NOW A

BOMB THAT WILL GO 20 TIMES

THE SPEED OF SOUND.

AND HE WANTS TO BUILD UP A

NUCLEAR ARSENAL.

HIS PERSONAL WEALTH COULD

BE AS MUCH AS

$100 BILLION.

AND HE AND HIS BUDDIES

HAVE JUST LOOTED THE

COUNTRY.

THEY HAVE HUGE AMOUNTS OF

MONEY.

HE HAS GIVEN THEM A

FAVORED POSITION TO TAKE

OVER MOST OF THE WEALTH OF

THE NATION OF RUSSIA.

AND HE KEEPS ON ROLLING

ALONG.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED IN

SYRIA, CHEMICAL WEAR FULL, WARFARE,

AND THE SYRIAN OPPOSITION

HAS BEEN JUST DEMOLISHED.

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN

KILLED IN SYRIA.

HE HAS BACKED M ASSAD, AND

HIS APPETITE IS TO RESTORE

THE FORMER SOVIET EMPIRE,

AND THAT WILL MEAN ALL OF

THE SURROUNDING COUNTRIES,

THE CAUCUSES COUNTRIES,

AND OTHERS THAT HAD BROKEN

AWAY WHEN THE RUSSIAN

EMPIRE WAS TAKEN APART --

HE'LL WANT TO GET IT ALL

BACK.

SO YOU'LL SEE ONE AFTER

THE AT, AND THEY'LL BE

ADVENTURES, ADVENTURES,

ADVENTURES.

THE ONLY WAY TO STOP IT IS

TO BE MUSCL MUSCULAR AND TO GO

AFTER HIM.

AND THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION DID NO SUCH

THING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT

HAS GOT TO BE DONE BECAUSE

THIS IS AN EXTENTIAL

THREAT TO THE SAFETY OF

THIS NATION.

BUT THE PROBLEM WE'RE

DEALING WITH IS HE IS

NUCLEAR WEAPONS -- HIS

ARSENAL IS BIG ENOUGH TO

DESTROY THE UNITED STATES.

AND HE KNOWS IT AND WE

KNOW IT.

> IN OTHER NEWS, STILL

ANOTHER BOMBING IN TEXAS.

THIS TIME AT A FEDEX

CENTER NEAR SAN ANTONIO.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: FEDERAL

INVESTIGATORS SUSPECT THIS

BOMBING IS LINKED TO THE

OTHER STRING OF BOMBINGS

IN THE TEXAS STATE CAPITAL

OF AUSTIN THIS MONTH.

THE LAST CAME FROM A

PACKAGE.

ROUGHLY 75 EMPLOYEES WERE

WORKING AT THE FACILITY

WHEN THE PACKAGE EXPLODED.

ONE PERSON RECEIVED MINOR

INJURIES BUT IS EXPECTED

TO BE OKAY.

AUTHORITIES ARE WARNING

PEOPLE NOT TO GO NEAR OR

OPEN SUSPICIOUS PACKAGES.

MORE THAN 500

INVESTIGATORS ARE ON THE

CASE.

> WELL, 116 AMERICANS

DIE EVERY DAY FROM AN

OPIOID-RELATED OVERDOSE.

AN ALARMING STATISTIC THAT

PROMPTED PRESIDENT TRUMP

TO CALL FOR THE TOUGHEST

PENALTY FOR TRAFFICKING

DRUGS.

HE MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT

IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

BEN KENNEDY BRINGS US THAT

STORY.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP WANTS THE DEATH

PENALTY ON THE TABLE WHEN

TALKING ABOUT DRUG

TRAFFICKERS WHO ARE BEHIND

DRUG-RELATED DEATHS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK THE

OPIOID FIGHT TO NEW

HAMPSHIRE, AND THERE HE

CALLED FOR THE DEPARTMENT

OF JUSTICE TO GO FOR THAT

PENALTY AGAINST DRUG

TRAFFICKERS.

President Trump: IF

WE DON'T GET TOUGH ON THE

DRUG DEALERS, WE'RE

WASTING OUR TIME.

JUST REMEMBER THAT, WE'RE

WASTING OUR TIME.

AND THAT TOUGHNESS

INCLUDES THE DEATH

PENALTY.

Reporter: TRUMP'S

ANNOUNCEMENT COMES IN THE

WAKE OF STORIES LIKE

21-YEAR-OLD KAYLIN WEANS,

WHO DIED OF A HEROIN

OVERDOSE.

HER MOTHER SAYS THAT

CHANGED EVERYTHING FOR

HER.

AND LIFE HAS JUST BEEN

SO DIFFERENT SINCE.

NO ONE, UNLESS YOU'VE BEEN

IN THAT SITUATION, CAN

EVEN FATHOM HOW THAT TURNS

YOUR WHOLE WORLD UPSIDE

DOWN WITHIN A SECOND.

Reporter: KAYLIN

BECAME ADDICTED TO PAIN

PILLS AFTER A SPORTS

INJURY, AND THEN MOVED TO

HEROIN.

THE FACE OF HEROIN HAS

CHANGED.

IT USED TO BE A CRIMINAL

ELEMENT IN THE URBAN CITY,

IN A WAREHOUSE, NOTHING

AROUND HERE.

NOW THE FACE OF HEROIN IS

MY DAUGHTER, WHO LOVES

SOCCER.

Reporter: MANY HAVE

TURNED TO THEIR FAITH FOR

STRENGTH TO BREAK THE

ADDICTION HABIT.

I STARTED GETTING TO

KNOW JESUS, AND I REALIZED

THAT THE SAME POWER THAT

ROSE HIM FROM THE GRAVE IS

WHAT FIGHTS ADDICTION, NOT

ME.

I CAN'T BEAT IT.

AND ONCE I REALIZED THAT

WAS THE POWER FIGHTING FOR

ME, I KNEW I WAS NEVER,

EVER GOING BACK.

Reporter: THE CENTER

FOR DISEASE CONTROL SAYS

OPIOIDS WERE BEHIND MORE

THAN 40,000 DEATHS IN 2016

ALONE, CALLING THE PROBLEM

AN EPIDEMIC.

OPIOIDS RANGE FROM

PRESCRIPTION PAIN

RELIEVERS TO HEROIN.

President Trump: 90%

OF THE HEROIN IN AMERICA

COMES FROM OUR SOUTHERN

BORDER, WHERE EVENTUALLY

THE DEMOCRATS WILL AGREE

WITH US AND WILL BUILD THE

WALL TO KEEP THE DAM DRUGS

OUT.

Reporter: IN OCTOBER,

PRESIDENT TRUMP DECLARED

THE OPIOID CRISIS A PUBLIC

HEALTH EMERGENCY.

HE DOUBLED DOWN ON HIS

PROMISE BY SECURING

$6 BILLION TO TACKLE THE

CRISIS, WITH PLANS TO

LAUNCH ANTI-DRUG

COMMERCIALS, GRANTING

WAIVERS TO STATES, AND

EVEN PROVIDING NARCAN,

WHICH COUNTER-ACTS A DRUG

OVERDOSE, FREE TO SCHOOLS

AND COLLEGES.

President Trump: THIS

IS ABOUT WINNING A VERY,

VERY TOUGH PROBLEM.

AND IF WE DON'T GET VERY

TOUGH ON THESE DEALERS,

IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN,

FOLKS.

IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

AND I WANT TO WIN THIS

BATTLE.

I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE AT

THE END OF SEVEN YEARS AND

HAVE THIS PROBLEM.

Reporter: DRUG

OVERDOSE DEATHS HAVE

NEARLY QUADRUPLED SINCE

1999, MAKING IT THE

LEADING CAUSE OF

ACCIDENTAL DEATHS RIGHT

HERE IN THE U.S.

WHICH IS WHY THE PRESIDENT

IS MAKING THIS A TOP

PRIORITY.

BEN KENNEDY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

John: PAT, CLEARLY A

GROWING CRISIS, BUT DO YOU

AGREE THE DEATH PENALTY

FOR DEALERS?

Pat: I WANTED THE

DEATH PENALTY FOR PEOPLE

WHO ARE TRAFFICKING IN

YOUNG CHILDREN.

IT'S NOT SO MUCH THE DEATH

PENALTY.

THE QUESTION IS STOPPING

THESE MANUFACTURERS WHO

ARE PUTTING THESE THINGS

OUT.

SO MANY OF THESE ARE BEING

PRESCRIBED BY DOCTORS.

THEY JUST HAVE NOT YET

GOTTEN THE MESSAGE THAT

THEY'VE GOT TO STOP THIS

RECKLESS WRITING OF

PRESCRIPTIONS.

OC KON ANOXYCONTIN AND SOME OF THE

OTHER THINGS THEY'VE GOT

ARE CLEARLY ADDICTIVE.

SOMEBODY HAS A LITTLE BIT

OF A PAIN, SO THEY GET A

PRESCRIPTION.

AND THEY START TAKING

THOSE DRUGS, AND THEN THEY

WANT TO GO HEAVIER AND

HEAVIER AND HEAVIER.

THAT'S WHAT IS CAUSING IT.

IT IS NOT SO MUCH KILLING

THE DRUG DEALERS, BUT

STOPPING THE COMPANIES

THAT ARE MAKING AND

MANUFACTURING THESE THINGS

AND THE DOCTORS WHO ARE

PRESCRIBING THEM.

John: PAT,

REPUBLICANS IN

PENNSYLVANIA HAVE LOST A

LEGAL BATTLE OVER DRAWING

CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS IN

THEIR STATE.

THE SUPREME COURT REFUSED

TO TAKE UP THEIR CHALLENGE

TO A NEW MAP OF

CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS

THAT WAS IMPOSED BY THE

PENNSYLVANIA STATE SUPREME

COURT.

IT RULED THE THE PREVIOUS

MAP VIOLATED THE STATE

CONSTITUTION'S GUARANTEE

OF FREE AND FAIR

ELECTIONS, BUT REPUBLICANS

SAY THE NEW MAP EXTREMELY

FAVORS DEMOCRATS.

THEY POINTED OUT THAT THE

"NEW YORK TIMES," AMONG

OTHERS, COULDN'T HAVE

ASKED FOR MUCH MORE FROM

THE NEW MAP.

IT WILL LIKELY HELP THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY PICK UP

MORE SEATS IN THIS FALL'S

MID-TERM ELECTIONS.

> A POWERFUL STORM

SYSTEM LEFT DESTRUCTION

BEHIND, HITTING THE

SOUTHEAST ESPECIALLY HARD.

THE STORMS STRUCK ALABAMA,

KNOCKING OUT POWER AND

DAMAGING HOMES.

I DON'T KNOW, THIS HAS

NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.

CALL THE INSURANCE COMPANY

AND WE'LL HAVE TO REBUILD.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'LL

DO.

IT HAS TO BE DECIDED.

IT IS A MESS.

John: AND IT'S NOT

OVER YET WITH TORNADOES,

PAT, EXPECTED TO HIT THE

AREA TONIGHT.

Pat: WELL, A BIG, BIG

STORM -- YOU WONDER ABOUT

THIS SO-CALLED GLOBAL

WARMING.

IT IS GETTING COLDER AND

MORE STORMY.

I'M SURE THE ACCOLADES OF

GLOBAL WARMING WILL SAY,

WELL, THE COLD IS BECAUSE

OF GLOBAL WARMING, IT IS

MANMADE, BUT THE TRUTH IS

IT IS GETTING A LOT

COLDER.

THESE ARE INTENSE STORMS.

THERE WAS SOMEBODY WHO

TOLD ME EARLIER -- I DON'T

KNOW IF IT IS CORRECT OR

NOT -- THAT WASHINGTON,

D.C., WHEN THIS IS OVER

WITH, MIGHT HAVE RECEIVED

MORE SNOW THIS WINTER -- A

RECORD.

Terry: AND WE'VE HAD

FOUR NOR'EASTERS IN LESS

THAN A MONTH.

Pat: THINK ABOUT

THAT.

IT IS POURING RAIN HERE,

AND I THINK WE'LL HAVE A

LITTLE BIT OF SNOW, BUT UP

IN THE NORTHEAST, AS YOU

GO UP THE 95 CORRIDOR INTO

NEW YORK AND NEW ENGLAND,

IT IS GOING TO BE A BEAR.

THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE

SPRING.

Terry: THAT'S

PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL'S

PROBLEM.

HE WARNED US.

> UP NEXT, THE SECRET

THAT MAKES ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE THE BEST IN

THE WORLD.

THEY ARE THE FINAL

FRONTIER, GUARDING THE

SAFETY OF THE COUNTRY.

THEY BELIEVE IF THEY DON'T

WORK TODAY WITH EVERYTHING

THEY HAVE, THEN TOMORROW

JEWS ARE GOING TO BE

KILLED.

Terry: GO BEHIND THE

SCENES OF ISRAEL'S

CONTROVERSIAL TARGETED

KILLS, AND SEE HOW THE

NATION HAS FOUGHT

EXTERMINATION, AFTER THIS.

Pat: SINCE ITS VERY

BEGINNING, THE NATION OF

ISRAEL HAS FACED

EXTERMINATION FROM ITS

ENEMIES.

SO THE JEWISH STATE HAS

FOUGHT BACK IN A NUMBER OF

WAYS.

INCLUDING THE

CONTROVERSIAL USE OF

TARGET ASSASSINATIONS.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS

FROM JERUSALEM, WE'RE

LEARNING FOR THE FIRST

TIME WHY THIS DEADLY

TECHNIQUE PLAYS SUCH A

PART IN ISRAEL'S HISTORY.

Chris: IN 1983, 241

AMERICANS DIED IN THE

MARINE BARRACKS BOMBING IN

BEIRUT, LEBANON.

ISRAEL'S ASSASSINATION OF

AMAD ANIA, THE MASTERMIND

BEHIND THAT BOMBING, IS

ONE REASON WHY MANY

CONSIDER ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE SERVICE THE

BEST IN THE WORLD.

A NEW BOOK TELLS WHY.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "RISE

AND KILL FIRST."

AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST

RONA BURGMAN TELLS CBN

NEWS THAT THE TITLE COMES

FROM AN ANCIENT JEWISH

WRITING HE HEARD QUOTED BY

MEMBERS OF ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE SERVICES.

THEY USED THE PHRASE

FROM THE BABYLONIAN

TABLET, WHICH SAYS, IF

SOMEONE COMES TO KILL YOU,

RISE UP AND KILL HIM

FIRST.

THE MINDSET THAT SAYS,

WHEN EVERY DECADE YOUR

PRIME NEMESIS, YOUR CHIEF

ADVERSARY, YOUR MAIN ENEMY

DECLARED PUBLICLY THAT ITS

MAIN GOAL IS TO DESTROY

ISRAEL, THEN THERE IS NO

OTHER CHOICE BUT TO RISE

UP AND KILL HIM FIRST.

Chris: SINCE ITS

FOUNDING, THAT'S BEEN THE

PUBLIC GOAL OF ISRAEL'S

ENEMIES, FROM SADDAM

HUSSEIN TO YASSER ARAFAT

TO MAKMUD AHMADINEJAD.

ALL OF THESE, WHEN THEY

ARE YOUR ENEMIES, YOU WILL

DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO

DEFEND YOUR COUNTRY AND

YOUR PEOPLE.

Chris: BERGMAN SAYS

AFTER THE HOLOCAUST, JEWS

FOLLOWED THREE LESSONS

THAT PERMEATE ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE SERVICES.

THE FIRST IS THAT THERE

WILL ALWAYS BE A GENTILE

THAT WANTS TO KILL.

AND SECOND, MOST OF THE

OTHER GENTILES WILL THE

NOT HELP.

AND THIRD, WE NEED TO HAVE

A SAFE HAVEN, A REFUGE, A

COUNTRY OF OUR OWN, TO

DEFEND IT, AND TO DEFEND

IT WITH ALL MEANS

POSSIBLE.

Chris: IN HIS BOOK,

BERGMAN EXPLAINS THE

SECRET THAT MAKES ISRAEL'S

INTELLIGENCE THE BEST IN

THE WORLD.

THERE IS ONE EXTRA

THOUGHT, AND THAT THOUGHT

IS THAT THEY ARE THE

GUARDS ON THE WALL.

THEY ARE, BORROWING A

PHRASE FROM "STAR TREK,"

THEY ARE THE FINAL

FRONTIER, GUARDING THE

SAFETY OF THE COUNTRY AND

THE CITIZENS OF ISRAEL,

AND JEWS WORLDWIDE, NOT

JUST IN ISRAEL.

THEY BELIEVE IF THEY DON'T

WORK TODAY WITH EVERYTHING

THEY HAVE, TOMORROW JEWS

ARE GOING TO BE KILLED.

Chris: BERGMAN'S BOOK

TAKES READERS THROUGH HOW

THEY USE CYBER WARFARE

AGAINST IRAN INSTEAD OF

BOMBING ITS NUCLEAR

FACILITIES.

HE ALSO DESCRIBES THE

ELIMINATION OF HEZBOLLAH

COMMANDER AHMED UNIA, AND

HOW YASSER ARAFAT ESCAPED

DOZENS OF ASSASSINATION

ATTEMPTS.

WE ASK, IS IT

EFFECTIVE, AND IS IT

LEGALLY AND MORALLY

JUSTIFIED.

Chris: HE POINTED TO

THE SECOND INTIFADA WHEN

PALESTINIAN SUICIDE

BOMBINGS KILLED AND MAIMED

THOUSANDS OF ISRAELIS.

WHEN ISRAEL STARTED TO

KILL THE HIERARCHY ABOVE

THEM, THE BOMB-MAKERS, THE

RECRUITERS, THE DRIVERS,

THE REGIONAL COMMANDERS,

THE POLITICAL LEADERS,

THEN THESE PEOPLE, THOSE

WERE NOT YET KILLED, WHO

HAD NO PROBLEM WITH

SENDING OTHER PEOPLE TO

THEIR DEATH, WELL, THEY

HAD ANOTHER THOUGHT: THEY

DID NOT WANT TO CHECK BY

THEMSELVES IF THE OPTION

OF THE 72 VIRS GINS IS 72 VIRGINS IS TRUE

OR NOT.

Chris: NOW MANY

WESTERN NATIONS ALSO

FOLLOW THE ISRAEL MODEL,

AND TARGETED KILLINGS

REMAIN AN INTENSE DEBATE,

AND ONLY ISRAEL'S PRIME

MINISTER CAN APPROVE THEM.

YET WITH ALL OF THE

SUCCESS, BERGMAN QUOTES

ONE EX-CHIEF WHO SUMMED UP

THEIR DILEMA.

AT THE CORE OF WHAT

E WWEDID EVERY DAY IN MOSUL, IS

THE DILEMA WHAT DOES A

DEMOCRACY, UNDER GRAVE

THREATS, ALL ITSELF TO

TAKE AND DO TO DEFEND ITS

CITIZENS, WHILE IT KNOWS

IT MIGHT VIOLATE OTHER

EVENTS.

Chris: BERGMAN'S BOOK

TOOK THE EIGHT YEARS TO

WRITE AND INCLUDES MORE

THAN 1,000 INTERVIEWS.

ON THE EVE OF ISRAEL'S

70th ANNIVERSARY,

BERGMAN SEES IT AS A

CONTRIBUTION TO THE

ONGOING REMARKABLE STORY.

SOMETIMES I WALK IN THE

STREETS OF ISRAEL, AND I

SAY, THIS IS REALLY A

MIRACLE.

I THINK WHAT WAS ACHIEVED

HERE DURING THE LAST 110

YEARS, SINCE THE EARLY

20th CENTURY, CANNOT BE

DESCRIBED AS NOTHING BUT A

MIRACLE.

AND I'M SO HAPPY TO BE

PART OF THAT.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: I DOUBT VERY

SERIOUSLY IF CHRISTIANS

CAN GO ALONG WITH THAT

PHILOSOPHY, RISE AND KILL.

YOU'VE GOT SOMEBODY WHO IS

COMING AFTER YOU, YOU RISE

AND KILL HIM FIRST.

CERTAINLY IN A WEAR FAUR WARFARE

SITUATION, THE TARGETING

OF THE OFFICERS OF AN

APPROACHING ARMY IS

CERTAINLY PERMISSIBLE

BECAUSE THAT'S WAR.

BUT TO KILL A PEACEFUL

MAN -- I DON'T KNOW HOW

PEACEFUL HE IS, BUT WHEN

YOU'RE NOT AT WAR, TO GO

AFTER AND TARGET THE

LEADERS, IT CERTAINLY

SEEMS AFFECTIVE, BUT I'LL

TELL YOU, THERE WAS A

GREAT UP ROAR WHEN I

SUGGESTED THAT HUGO CHAVEZ

IN VENEZUELA -- THERE

MIGHT BE SOME SUGGESTION

THAT WE TAKE HIM OUT.

IF WE HAD DONE THAT, WE

WOULD HAVE SPARED THOSE

VENEZUELAN PEOPLE

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE TORMENT

THAT THEY'VE BEEN GOING

THROUGH THESE PAST DECADES

BECAUSE OF THAT ONE MAN.

AND I THINK IT IS TRUE

THAT RATHER THAN BRING AN

ARMY TO A WAR, WHICH WE

ALL -- YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY

APPLAUDS AND SAYS OKAY,

THAT'S OKAY, YOU CAN GO TO

WAR, BUT YOU CAN'T TAKE

OUT THE LEADERS.

WELL, WHAT ABOUT TWO OR

THREE PEOPLE, AN ADOLPH

HITLER OR SOMEBODY LIKE

THAT WHO IS PRU PROMULGATEING

THIS HORRIBLE PROSPECT OF

DESTRUCTION, AND MILLIONS

AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

WILL DIE, OR ONE MAN WILL

BE TAKEN OUT -- I THINK

FROM A SCRIPTURAL POINT OF

VIEW, MAYBE THAT'S NOT AS

BAD AS MANY PEOPLE MAY

THINK.

ANY WAY, I DIDN'T WRITE

THE BOOK "RISE UP."

THE JEWS HAVE BEEN PRETTY

GOOD.

THE ISRAELIS HAVE BEEN

PRETTY GOOD IN DEFENDING

THEMSELVES.

AND YOU CAN'T BLAME THEM

BECAUSE ALL OF THE NATIONS

OF THE EARTH, EXCEPT MAYBE

ONE OR TWO, ARE OPPOSED TO

ISRAEL.

WE'RE SEEING A RISE OF

ANTI-SEMITISM.

AND THESE PEOPLE HAVE GOT

TO BE STRONG.

I THINK IT IS TRUE.

THEY NEED TO HAVE

STRENGTH.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, THE GRAMMY-WINNING

ARTIST WHO WROTE THE

ANTHEM "CHAIN BREAKER."

* MILES AND MILE

LITERALLY, 15, 20

MINUTES LATER, WE HAD

WRITTEN THAT SONG.

Terry: ZACH WILLIAMS

SHARES THE REAL LIFE STORY

BEHIND THE HIT SONG, WHEN

WE COME BACK.

CLERICAL

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," ON THIS BEGINNING

OF SPRING, AND SNOWY

WEATHER IN THE EAST.

WE'RE GOING TO GET OUT OF

THE IT SOONER OR LATER,

AND WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE WITH

US.

> LESS THAN TWO YEARS

AGO, A GUY NAMED ZACH

WILLIAMS RELEASED "TRAIN

BREAKER," AND IT REACHED

NUMBER ONE ON THE HOT

CHRISTIAN CHART.

"CHAIN BREAKER" WAS TAKEN

FROM A CHAPTER IN ZACH'S

REAL LIFE, WHEN HE WAS

UNDER TREMENDOUS BONDAGE.

WATCH THIS.

I'D BEEN IN NASHVILLE

FOR AN ENTIRE WEEK,

WRITTEN SONGS ALL WEEK

LONG, HAD A FOUR-HOUR

DRIVE, AND ALL I COULD

THINK ABOUT WAS GETTING

HOME.

AND I SAT DOWN WITH

JONATHAN SMITH AND MIA

MEALS, AND AT THE TIME, ME

AND MY WIFE WERE VERY

INVOLVED IN PRISON

MINISTRY AT OU.

* YOU'VE BEEN WALKING THE

SAME OLD ROAD FOR MILES

AND MILES *

LITERALLY, 15, 20

MINUTES LATER, WE HAD

WRITTEN THAT SONG.

* SAME OLD LINES

Reporter: "CHAIN

BREAKER" WON A GRAMMY IN

2018 FOR BEST CHRISTIAN

ALBUM.

BUT THERE WAS A TIME IN

ZACH'S LIFE WHEN HE HAD

CHAINS OF HIS OWN.

HE WAS RAISED IN ARKANSAS

TO CHRISTIAN PARENTS AND

WAS RAISED IN CHURCH.

IT WAS A STORYBOOK

CHILDHOOD.

I HAD A GREAT FAMILY.

FROM AS EARLY AS I CAN

REMEMBER, WE WERE IN

CHURCH ON SUNDAYS AND

WEDNESDAYS, AND I KNEW ALL

OF THE STORIES IN MY HEAD.

I KNEW THE SCRIPTURES AND

THE TEACHINGS AND THINGS.

I'M NOT SURE THAT I REALLY

UNDERSTOOD AS FAR AS THE

HEART PART OF IT.

Reporter: IN HIGH

SCHOOL, HOWEVER, HE BEGAN

DRINKING AND DOING DRUGS.

IT JUST KIND OF SUCKED

ME IN, THAT LIFESTYLE.

THERE WASN'T ANYTHING THAT

HAPPENED IN MY PAST OR

CHILDHOOD THAT WOULD PUSH

ME TO USING DRUGS OR

ALCOHOL.

IT WAS MORE OF A, YOU

KNOW, JUST KIND OF THE

WRONG CROWD.

I KNEW IT WAS WRONG, BUT

IT WAS ALSO -- FOR ME AT

THAT TIME, IT WAS FUN.

I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS A

BIG DEAL.

BUT OBVIOUSLY, AS I GOT

OLDER IT STARTED TO BE A

MUCH GREATER DEAL IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: AND HE WAS

A BASKETBALL STAR WHO

HOPED TO GO ON TO PRO, BUT

AN INJURY HAPPENED.

I WANTED TO BE A ROCK

STAR.

AND SO FOR THE NEXT 10

YEARS OF MY LIFE, I

LITERALLY CARRIED A GUITAR

WITH ME EVERYWHERE I WENT.

Reporter: HE

EVENTUALLY FORMED HIS OWN

BAND, IRONICALLY TITLED,

"ZACH WILLIAMS AND THE

REFORMATION."

WE HAD SOME SUCCESS.

WE TOURED EUROPE A COUPLE

OF TIMES, AND DID A TOUR

FOR THE U.S.O.

FOR ME, I FELT LIKE I HAD

MADE IT.

Reporter: ZACH MAN

AND BEGAN DATING CRYSTAL.

THE TWO LATER MARRIED, BUT

ZACHARY FUSED TO CHANGE.

FOR THE FIRST FEW YEARS

OF OUR LIVES TOGETHER, I

WAS STILL DRINKING A LOT.

I REMEMBER TELLING MY

WIFE, YOU KNEW THIS WHEN

YOU MET ME.

I'M NOT GOING TO CHANGE.

THAT WAS ALWAYS KIND OF MY

THEME WHENEVER SHE WOULD

COME TO ME AND SAY, YOU

KNOW, YOU NEED TO GROW UP.

WE NEED TO MAKE SOME

CHANGES IN OUR LIVES.

I KNEW SHE WAS TELLING THE

TRUTH ABOUT EVERYTHING.

I DID NEED TO MAKE SOME

CHANGES.

Reporter: ALL THE

WHILE, HIS PARENTS

CONTINUED TO PRAY FOR HIM.

THAT'S WHERE THEIR

FAITH WAS TESTED.

BUT I ALSO SAW THEM NEVER

QUIT PRAYING, NEVER GAVE

UP.

THEY WOULD COME AND SIT ON

MY COUCH AND PRAY FOR ME

AND MY WIFE AND FAMILY.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

ZACH GOT TIRED OF THE TOLL

IT WAS TAKING ON HIS

FAMILY.

OBVIOUSLY, I COULDN'T

BE A GOOD DAD.

FROM ALL OF THE SUCCESS WE

HAD, I WAS A MISERABLE

SHELL OF A PERSON.

GOING OUT AND PLAYING

THESE SHOWS WASN'T MAKING

IT ANY BETTER.

I WAS STANDING ON STAGE

EVERY NIGHT JUST KIND OF

FOR THE HIGH I GOT FROM

BEING OUT THERE IN FRONT

OF THE CROWD.

AND THEN I WAS WALKING OFF

STAGE EVERY NIGHT, COMING

HOME MISERABLE.

Reporter: WHILE DRIVE

THROUGH SPAIN WITH HIS

BAND, HE HEARD A SONG ON

THE RADIO.

I HEARD A SONG ON THE

RADIO, AND GOD GOT MY

ATTENTION.

AND GOD SAID, I SEE YOU

DIFFERENTLY THAN YOU SEE

YOURSELF.

I'VE GIVEN YOU THIS GIFT,

GIVEN YOU ALL OF THESE

CHANCES, AND I WANT YOU TO

USE THIS FOR ME.

IF YOU WILL, I WILL GIVE

YOU THINGS YOU'VE NEVER

DREAMED OF.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

ZACH CALLED CRYSTAL.

I WAS, LIKE, WHEN THIS

TOUR IS OVER, I'M

QUITTING, CANCELLING THE

SHOWS.

I REMEMBER BUSTING INTO

TEARS AND ASKING FOR

FORGIVENESS FROM MY WIFE

AND KIDS, AND APOLOGIZING

FOR THE PAST AND ALL OF

THE WRONGS I'D DONE.

I FELT HORRIBLE.

IT WAS LIKE THIS MOMENT

WITH GOD WHERE I SAID, I

CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE.

I DON'T CARE IF I EVER

PLAY ANOTHER SONG OR I

PLAY GUITAR.

IF WHAT I'M SUPPOSED TO DO

WITH MY LIFE IS TO WORK IN

THE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY

WITH MY DAD AND BE A GOOD

FATHER AND HUSBAND AND GO

TO CHURCH, THAT'S WHAT I

WANT TO DO.

IT WAS JUST, WHEW, I DON'T

HAVE TO GO AND DO WHAT

I'VE BEEN DOING.

THAT'S WHEN THINGS STARTED

CHANGING IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: ZACH AND

CRYSTAL BOTH ACCEPTED

CHRIST IN 2012 AND STARTED

ATTENDING A CHURCH IN

JONESVILLE.

OUT OF THE BLUE ONE

DAY, I WAS WORKING AROUND

A CONSTRUCTION SITE WITH

MY DAD, AND I STARTED

HEARING WORDS AND MY HEAD

AND I STARTED WRITING THEM

DOWN.

AND BEFORE I KNEW IT, I

HAD A CHRISTIAN SONG.

Reporter: AND SOON

AFTER, THE CHURCH ASKED

HIM TO THE MUSIC PASTOR.

THEY HAD SEEN GOD

WORKING IN MY AND MY

FAMILY'S LIFE, BUT THE

FIRST TIME I STOOD ON

STAGE AND LED WORSHIP, IT

WAS THE FIRST TIME I EVER

REMEMBER FEELING LIKE I

WASN'T FAKING IT.

I JUST REMEMBER I HAD MY

EYES CLOSED AND I WAS JUST

SINGING TO THE LORD.

Reporter: AND DOORS

BEGAN TO OPEN FOR ZACH.

INCLUDING SONGWRITERS IN

NASHVILLE.

ONE EVENING HE GOT A CALL

FROM A RECORD LABEL

EXECUTIVE.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, HEY,

YOU SITTING DOWN?

AND I WAS, LIKE, YEAH.

AND HE SAID, I PLAYED YOUR

SONG FOR THE RECORD LABEL

TODAY IN A MEETING, AND

THEY WANT TO OFFER YOU A

RECORD DEAL.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WHAT?

THE PRAYER THAT I PRAYED

SIX MONTHS BEFORE, GOD

HEARD MY PRAYER.

Reporter: ZACH,

CRYSTAL, AND THEIR

CHILDREN RECENTLY MOVED TO

A HOME NEAR NASHVILLE.

HE IS CURRENTLY TOURING

WITH HIS BAND AND IS

EXCITED TO SEE THE PLANS

GOD HAS FOR HIM AND HIS

MUSIC.

SINCE I HIT THE GROUND

AND FELL ON MY HANDS AND

KNEES THAT DAY IN 2012, IT

HAS BEEN ONE THING AFTER

ANOTHER WHERE GOD HAS

SHOWN UP AND DONE IN MY

LIFE AND MY FAMILY'S LIFE.

HE HAS STRENTHENED MY

MARRIAGE, MY RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN ME AND MY WIFE.

IT'S JUST BEEN REALLY NEAT

TO SEE AND BE A PART OF.

* HE'S A CHAIN BREAKER.

*

IT IS HUMBLING TO KNOW

HE HEARS YOUR PRAYERS AND

YOUR CRIES.

IT IS REALLY COOL.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A MAN

TO GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD

AND LOSE HIS OWN SOUL?

AND WHAT CAN A MAN GIVE IN

EXCHANGE FOR HIS SOUL?

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT, TO

GET EVERYTHING?

ZACH DIDN'T HAVE

EVERYTHING, BUT HE HAD A

LOT GOING FOR HIM.

BUT UNTIL HE WAS IN

KEEPING WITH THE LORD, HE

LOST EVERYTHING.

HE HAD NOTHING.

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A MAN

TO GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD

AND LOSE HIS OWN SOUL?

I SAY THAT TO YOU.

SAY YOU GET RICH, BUT WHAT

HAVE YOU MADE?

YOU'VE GOT A LOT OF MONEY

IN THE BANK, YOU'VE GOT

SOME STOCKS AND BONDS,

SOME INSURANCE POLICIES,

IN REAL ESTATE, SO?

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT YOU IF

YOU YOU GAVE YOUR SOUL IN

EXCHANGE FOR THAT?

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT YOU IF

YOU'RE A FAMOUS SINGER OR

ACTOR, MUSICIAN, WHATEVER,

AND YOU'VE GOT THE

ADORATION OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE, WHAT IF YOU'RE A

POLITICIAN AND PEOPLE ARE

CHEERING FOR YOU WHEN YOU

GET ON STAGE AND THEY'RE

VOTING FOR YOU, AND THE

NEXT THING YOU KNOW YOU'RE

IN PUBLIC OFFICE.

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT IF YOU

GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD BUT

YOU LOST YOUR OWN SOUL?

SO I WANT TO ASK YOU

TODAY, WHAT ARE YOU

WILLING TO GIVE TO GET

YOUR SOUL BACK?

WELL, JESUS CHRIST DIED

THAT YOU MIGHT BE

REDEEMED.

AND HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR

YOU.

AND THAT WAS THE PRICE OF

GETTING YOU BACK.

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT

BEING REDEEMED.

AND THE WORD FOR

"REDEEMED" IN THE GREEK IS

"AGORIZO," WHICH MEANS TO

GO INTO THE MARKETPLACE

AND BY SOMETHING BACK.

AND THE LORD WENT INTO THE

MARKETPLACE TO BUY YOU

BACK.

AND HE PAID THE PRICE SO

THAT YOU CAN BE FREE.

AND ALL THOSE THINGS

AROUND YOU DON'T MEAN

ANYTHING.

ZACH'S GOT THE WORD.

NOW, IF YOU WANT TO BE

FREE, REALLY FREE, AND YOU

WANT TO KNOW THAT YOU'VE

GOT YOUR SOUL BACK, IT'S

BEEN GIVEN YOU BY THE

LORD, I WANT YOU TO

RECEIVE ROO HE HA WHAT HE HAS DONE.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME

RIGHT NOW.

BOW YOUR HEAD, AND AS I

PRAY, YOU PRAY WITH ME.

LORD JESUS CHRIST --

THAT'S RIGHT, YOU SAY IT

AND MEAN IT.

LORD JESUS CHRIST, I KNOW

YOU DIED TO WIN ME BACK.

AND I WANT MY SOUL.

I'VE GIVEN IT UP FOR

TINSEL AND TOYS AND THINGS

THAT DON'T HAVE ANY

ETERNAL CONSEQUENCE.

I WANT TO BE WITH YOU, AND

I RECEIVE YOUR DEATH FOR

ME.

I TAKE THE PAYMENT THAT

YOU HAVE MADE TO WIN BACK

MY SOUL.

AND I RECEIVE IT, LORD,

AND I THANK YOU THAT YOU

DIED FOR ME.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I

AM YOURS.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU YOU

ARE MINAREMINE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME, THANK YOU,

LORD.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I WANT TO DO

SOMETHING FOR YOU.

I WANT YOU YOU TO BE

ESTABLISHED.

THIS IS ONLY THE

BEGINNING.

HOW DO YOU YO RECEIVE THOSE

BLESSINGS?

WE HAVE SOMETHING HERE FOR

YOU.

IN IT IS A COMPACT DISC.

IT IS ABOUT 70 SOMETHING

MINUTES OF CONCENTRATED

TEACHING ABOUT WHAT YOU'VE

JUST DONE.

I WANT TO GIVE IT TO YOU

FREE.

SO IF YOU CALL IN RIGHT

NOW, WE'LL GIVE THIS TO

YOU.

THERE IS NO FINANCIAL

OBLIGATION WHATSOEVER.

JUST SAY, I'VE PRAYED WITH

PAT.

I'VE GIVEN THE LORD MY

LIFE, AND I'M THANKFUL

THAT I'VE GOT MY SOUL.

I'VE BEEN REDEEMED BY THE

BLOOD OF THE LAMB.

I WANT YOU TO CALL.

THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS ON

YOUR SCREEN.

IT IS EASY TO REMEMBER:

1-800-700-7000.

SO IF YOU'RE OUT OF THE

AREA, YOU DIAL 1-800.

IT'S TOLL-FREE, WHEREVER

YOU ARE IN THE COUNTRY OR

AROUND THE WORLD.

CALL RIGHT NOW AND SAY, I

JUST PRAYED.

I THANK YOU THAT JESUS

REDEEMED ME FROM THE CURSE

OF SIN.

I'M FREE FROM THIS MOMENT

ON.

HERE IS TERRY.

Terry: COMING UP, THE

GREATEST COACH OF ALL TIME

IN ANY SPORT.

UCLA'S JOHN WOODEN.

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR PAYS

TRIBUTE TO THE ICON IN A

NEW BOOK ABOUT COACH

WOODEN'S FORGOTTEN TEAM.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A FEDERAL JUDGE IN

MISSISSIPPI WILL HEAR

ARGUMENTS TODAY OVER THE

STATE'S NEW ABORTION BAN.

IT'S THE TOUGHEST IN THE

NATION.

THE GOVERNOR SIGNED THE

BILL INTO LAW JUST

YESTERDAY.

IT BANS ABORTIONS AFTER 15

WEEKS.

REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR PHIL

BRYANT SAYS MISSISSIPPI IS

SAVING MORE UNBORN BABIES

THAN ANY OTHER STATE IN

THE NATION.

BUT MISSISSIPPI'S ONLY

ABORTION CLINIC IS SUING

TO STOP THE LAW FROM GOING

INTO AFFECT.

> WELL, TODAY MARKS THE

FIRST DAY OF SPRING, BUT

WINTER DOESN'T WANT TO GO

AWAY.

ANOTHER NOR'EASTER IS

EXPECTED TO HIT THE

NORTHEAST BY THURSDAY.

THE STORM COULD BRING UP

TO A FOOT OF SNOW IN SOME

AREAS, ALONG WITH STRONG

WINDS AND SOME COASTAL

FLOODING.

THIS WOULD BE THE FOURTH

NOR'EASTER IN LESS THAN

THREE WEEKS.

THE STORM COULD STRETCH

FROM OHIO AND WEST

VIRGINIA UP TO

MASSACHUSETTS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

VISITING OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: YOU CAN ARGUE

ALL DAY ABOUT WHO IS THE

SECOND GREATEST COACH IN

THE WORLD, BUT JOHN WOODEN

HAS THE GREATEST COACH PON

MONIKER ALL SEWED UP, SO

SAYS BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

PAT WILLIAMS, WHO JUST

RELEASED HIS FOURTH BOOK

ON THE ICONIC COACH.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: AS A PLAYER

IN PURDUE IN THE EARLY

1930s, JOHN WOODEN WAS A

COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER

OF THE YEAR, BUT HE WAS AN

EVEN BETTER COACH.

FROM 1948 TO 1975, HE WAS

HEAD COACH OF MEN'S

BASKETBALL AT UCLA.

HE HAD 10 NATIONAL

CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 12 YEARS,

AND IN FOUR SEASONS, HE

TEAM HAD 30 VICTORIES

WITHOUT A SINGLE LOSS.

THAT'S WHY THE ORLANDO

MAGIC PAT WILLIAMS

COMPILED LIFE LESSONS

WOODEN SHARED AT HIS

BASKETBALL CAMP IN HIS NEW

BOOK, "COACH WOODEN'S

FORGOTTEN TEAM."

Terry: WELCOME BACK

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

PAT WILLIAMS.

GREAT TO SEE YOU.

SO GOOD TO BE HERE IN

THE MIDDLE OF MARCH

MADNESS.

THIS WOODEN BOOK HAT COME HAS COME

OUT.

GREAT TIMING.

Terry: BEFORE WE TALK

ABOUT THAT, HOW IS YOUR

HEALTH?

I'M DOING WELL.

I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ONE

OF THE BLOOD CANCERS, BUT

THE DOCTORS ARE TELLING ME

THEY DON'T SEE ANY SIGNS

OF IT.

I FEEL GOOD AND I'M ABLE

TO KEEP MY FULL SCHEDULE.

SO THE LORD HAS BEEN VERY,

VERY GOOD TO ME, TERRY.

Terry: AND YOUR

SCHEDULE IS A FULL

SCHEDULE --

IT IS.

NO QUESTION.

Terry: WHAT MADE YOU

DECIDE TO WRITE A FOURTH

BOOK?

TERRY, I WANTED TO

WRITE A BOOK YEARS AGO

CALLED "HOW TO BE LIKE

COACH."

SO I SENT HIM A LETTER,

ASKING IF HE WOULD GIVE ME

PERMISSION.

A FEW DAYS LATER THE PHONE

RANG.

MR. WILLIAMS, THIS IS JOHN

WOODEN, THE FORMER

BASKETBALL COACH AT UCLA.

HE SAID, I AM NOT WORTHY

OF A PROJECT LIKE THIS,

BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO

DO IT, YOU GO ON AHEAD.

WELL, THAT OPENED THE

DOOR.

I WAS ABLE TO BUILD A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

HE HAD A NICE LITTLE CONDO

IN ENCINO, CALIFORNIA.

I GUESS ON FIVE OR SIX

DIFFERENT OCCASIONS WE

WOULD PICK HIM UP ABOUT

5:00, TAKE HIM TO DINNER,

COME BACK TO HIS CONDO,

INTO HIS OFFICE, WHICH IS

NOW, BY THE WAY, A MUSEUM

PIECE ON THE UCLA CAMPUS,

AND WE WOULD TALK.

HE LOVED POETRY.

HE WOULD READ THE LATEST

POEMS THAT HE RECEIVED AND

TALK ABOUT LIFE.

SO THAT LED TO THIS BOOK,

WHICH IS THE FOURTH BOOK,

BECAUSE THERE WAS AN AREA

OF HIS LIFE THAT WAS A BIG

PIECE OF HIS LIFE, THAT

NEVER REALLY HAD BEEN

EXAMINED.

NAMELY HIS SUMMER CAMPS,

TOUCHING THOUSANDS OF

YOUNGSTERS.

Terry: HIS SECOND

CAREER, REALLY.

AND HE WAS JUST AS

SUCCESSFUL, IN HIS OWN

WAY, IN THAT CAREER, AND

MAYBE EVEN MORE THAN IN

HIS COACHING CAREER.

I THINK YOU'RE RIGHT.

THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MEN AND

WOMEN CAME THROUGH THOSE

CAMPS.

MANY WE'VE HEARD OF.

THEY WENT ON AND HAD

SUCCESSFUL CAREERS, LIKE

STEVE KERR.

AND HE LOVED TO TEACH.

JOHN WOODEN NEVER USED THE

WORD "COACHING."

IT WAS ALWAYS "TEACHING."

Terry: AND HE ALSO

DIDN'T TALK A LOT ABOUT

WINNING, WHICH IS

ASTONISHING CONSIDERING

HIS RECORDS.

BUT HE BELIEVED THE

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT MADE

YOU A WINNER IF YOU WERE

FOCUSED ON THE RIGHT

THING.

AND PREPARATION.

HE WAS NA FANATIC ABOUT

PREPARATION.

HIS PRACTICES WERE

ABSOLUTELY RUN LIKE CLOCK

WORK, NOT A WASTED SECOND.

HE BELIEVED IF HE DID HIS

JOB DURING THE WEEK OF

TEACHING AND INSTRUCTING

AND GETTING HIS PLAYERS

READY, HE DIDN'T HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT THE GAMES.

HAVING SAID THAT, TERRY, I

ONCE ASKED HIM THE KEY TO

HIS SUCCESS AT UCLA, AND

HE SAID, TALENT, TALENT,

TALENT.

AND HE SAID, I NEVER

WANTED TO GO INTO A GAME

WITH MY OPPONENT UNLESS I

HAD BETTER PLAYERS THAN HE

DID.

Terry: WELL, TALENT

IS IMPORTANT, BUT TALENT

ISN'T ENOUGH, REALLY.

WE'VE ALL SEEN TALENTED

PEOPLE WHO HAVE MADE SOME

POOR DECISIONS IN LIFE.

HE WAS REALLY ABOUT

DISCIPLINE, ABOUT LITTLE

THINGS --

YES.

Terry: TALK ABOUT

THAT.

AND, TERRY, OVER DINNER

ONE NIGHT I WAS SITTING

NEXT TO HIM, AND I LEANED

OVER AND I SAID, COACH,

YOU'VE BEEN AROUND A LONG

TIME.

COULD YOU POINT OUT ONE

SECRET OF SUCCESS,

PERHAPS?

AND HE THOUGHT FOR A

MINUTE AND HE SAID, THE

CLOSEST I COULD COME TO A

SECRET OF SUCCESS WOULD BE

A LOT OF LITTLE THINGS

DONE WELL.

AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,

OOH, THAT COULD BE A BOOK

SOME DAY.

AND SO A FEW YEARS AGO, WE

WROTE THAT BOOK, "COACH

WOODEN'S GREATEST SECRET,"

AND IT WAS ABOUT A LOT OF

LITTLE THINGS DONE WELL.

Terry: ON THE COVER

OF THIS BOOK, YOU HAVE NOT

JUST A BASKETBALL, BUT A

PICTURE OF A SHOE PROPPED

UP AGAINST A WALL.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE LITTLE

THINGS.

WELL, HE TOLD HIS

PLAYERS AFTER PRACTICE,

THEIR FEET WOULD BE WET

AND SO FORTH, BUT HE SAID,

I WANT YOU TO TILT YOUR

SHOES UP AGAINST THE WALL

OF YOUR LOCKER AT AN

ANGLE.

AND HE SAID, THAT WAY THEY

WILL DRY AND AIR OUT MORE

EFFICIENTLY THAN IF YOU

JUST HAVE THAT THE FLAT.

WE THOUGHT THAT WAS A

SUBTLE HINT --

Terry: ISN'T THERE

SOME PLAYERS HE COACHED

THAT STILL, OVER THE

YEARS, PROP THEIR SHOES UP

AGAINST THE WALL.

WE FOUND SOME OF THEM

WHO SAID THEY STILL DO

THAT.

HE ALSO WAS A STICKLER

ABOUT TEACHING HIS PLAYERS

ABOUT HOW TO PUT THEIR

SOCKS ON PROPERLY WITHOUT

ANY WRINKLES, WHICH WOULD

CREATE A BLISTER, PERHAPS.

AND HOW TO LACE THEIR

SHOES PROPERLY, AND HOW TO

DOUBLE KNOT THEM.

I SAW A PLAYER THIS

WEEKEND, YOU KNOW, WHO'S

SHOE CAME OFF IN THE

MIDDLE OF ACTION AND HE

HAD TO SLOW DOWN AND GET

IT BACK ON.

I THOUGHT, THE COACH

WOULDN'T LIKE THAT.

AND HE WOULD BE INSISTENT

ON DOUBLE KNOTS, SO THE

SHOE WOULD STAY ON AND

WOULDN'T COME FLYING OFF

AND SLOW EVERYTHING DOWN.

HE HAD A GOOD EYE FOR ALL

OF THE LITTLE DETAILS OF

LIFE THAT REALLY MATTER IN

THE LONG RUN.

Terry: HE SURE DID.

I THINK IT WAS REALLY

COMMENDABLE THAT HE MADE

SUCH AN IMPRESSION ON

PEOPLE, YOURSELF INCLUDED,

THAT THOUGH HE IS NOT HERE

WITH US ANYMORE, HIS

LEGACY LIVES ON IN THESE

IRREPLACEABLE, IRREFUTABLE

LESSONS OF WHAT IS

IMPORTANT IN LIFE.

PEOPLE HAVE ASKED WHY I

HAVE DONE THESE COACH

WOODEN BOOKS.

AND I THINK YOU JUST HIT

IT.

HIS LESSONS OR SO

VALUABLE, AND WE DON'T

WANT THEM TO END.

I HAVE WRITTEN THESE BOOKS

TO PERPETUATE THE

CHARACTER AND THE

LEADERSHIP, AND THE UNIQUE

DETAILS OF HIS LIFE.

HE WAS A STRONG CHRISTIAN.

HIS FAITH WAS VERY REAL TO

HIM.

AND MAYBE THE HIGHEST

PRAISE, AND MAYBE THE BEST

LITTLE DETAIL IN THIS

BOOK -- SOMEBODY SAID TO

ME, COACH WOODEN WASN'T

GOOD TO PEOPLE; HE WAS

GREAT TO PEOPLE.

Terry: YEAH, PEOPLE

MATTERED.

SO HERE IS A GREAT

LESSON.

DON'T JUST BEEN GOOD TO

PEOPLE; BE GREAT TO

PEOPLE.

THAT'S A WOODEN LESSON.

Terry: THE LEGACY OF

A LIFE WELL-LISTENED.

THIS IS BOOK NUMBER FOUR,

"COACH WOODEN'S FORGOTTEN

TEAMS."

YOU WANT TO GET AHOLD OF

IT WHEREVER BOOKS ARE

SOLD.

YOU CAN ALSO HEAR MORE

ABOUT JOHN'S LIFE IN A

SOCIAL EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

ON OUR Facebook PAGE,

JUST GO TO

Facebook.com/700club.

IT IS GREAT TO SEE YOU,

PAT.

TERRY, I'M HAPPY TO SEE

YOU, ALWAYS.

Terry: AMEN.

> STILL AHEAD, WE'VE GOT

YOUR E-MAIL.

RICHARD WANDS TO KNOW,

"WHERE DID THE QUOTETILL '

TILL DEATH DO US PART COME

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND WE'RE DELIGHTED

YOU'RE WITH US.

I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT A

STORY NEPAL.

IN ONE REMOTE VILLAGE IN

NEPAL, THE RISK TO FETCH

WATER WAS BEING ATTACKED

BY TIGERS.

THAT'S NOT THE CASE

ANYMORE.

NOW THE PEOPLE THERE HAVE

CLEAN WATER PUMPED

STRAIGHT TO THEIR HOMES,

THANKS TO VIEWERS LIKE YOU

AND WHAT YOU HAVE DONE.

Reporter: IN THE

FOOTHILLS OF THE HIMALAYAS

IN NORTHERN NEPAL, EVERY

FAMILY DONATED THEIR OWN

MONEY TO DIG A WELL AND

BUILD A CISTERN FOR CLEAN

WATER.

THEY WERE SAVING

THEMSELVES FROM A LIFETIME

OF STRUGGLE.

TO GET DRINKING WATER,

WE HAD TO GO BEHIND THE

MOUNTAINS, WHERE THE

SPRING WATER COLLECTS

WATER.

Reporter: NINA TOLD

ME SHE FETCHED WATER SO

HER DAUGHTER-IN-LAW COULD

TAKE CARE OF THE CHILDREN

AND ANIMALS.

THEY THOUGHT THE NEW WELL,

WOULD HELP, BUT IT DIDN'T.

WE COULDN'T RAYS ENOUGH

MONEY TO PIPE THE WATER TO

OUR HOUSES.

Reporter: WHEN WE

HEARD ABOUT HOW HARD THE

ENTIRE COMMUNITY WORKED TO

GET THE WELL, CBN PAID FOR

ALL OF THE PIPES NEEDED TO

GET WATER DIRECTLY TO MORE

THAN 200 FAMILIES

SCATTERED ACROSS THE

HILLSIDE.

THAT'S NEARLY A THOUSAND

PEOPLE WHO'S LIVES WILL BE

CHANGED BECAUSE THEY HAVE

ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER.

NOW I DON'T HAVE TO GET

UP AT 3:00 IN THE MORNING

AND SPEND HALF THE DAY

GETTING WATER.

I CAN SPEND MORE TIME

TAKING CARE OF OUR FAMILY

AND EARNING MONEY WORKING

IN THE FIELDS.

MORE WATER FOR THE

ANIMALS MEANS MORE MEALS

FOR OUR FAMILY.

OUR CHILDREN ARE HEALTHY,

AND THE ANIMALS ARE

HEALTHY.

YOU SAW OUR TROUBLES

AND GAVE US WATER.

THANK YOU, CBN, VERY, VERY

MUCH.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

WONDERFUL?

THE WHOLE VILLAGE CHANGED.

YOU TAKE IT FOR GRANTED,

YOU GET WATER.

BUT MOST OF THESE LITTLE

VILLAGES DON'T HAVE ANY

CENTRAL WATER SUPPLY, AND

THEY DON'T HAVE THE PIPES.

BUT WE CAN BRING WATER TO

THEM.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

WE ALL WORK TOGETHER.

AND IT TAKES 65 CENTS A

DAY.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

BIG MONEY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A

RELATIVELY SMALL AMOUNT TO

MAKE A EXCHANGE.

65 CENTS.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE

GOVERNMENT IS SAYING IT IS

TOO EXPENSIVE TO MAKE

NICKELS AND DIMES AND

PENNIES AND THINGS LIKE

THAT.

THEY'RE GOING TO STOP.

BUT 65 CENTS IS ALL IT

TAKES TO GET "700 CLUB"

MEMBERSHIP.

SO WHY DON'T YOU CALL THE

NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN AND

SAY, LOOK, I WANT TO HELP

THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE

SUFFERING AND DON'T HAVE

ENOUGH WATER, DON'T HAVE

ENOUGH FOOD, DON'T HAVE

ENOUGH MEDICINE.

I WANT TO BRING JOY TO

THEIR HEARTS.

AND HERE IS HOW I'M GOING

TO DO IT.

TERRY?

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS WE WANT TO SEND YOU

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," IS PAT'S LATEST

TEACHING CALLED "ANSWERED

PRAYER."

THIS PERSON SAYS, "HEARING

OTHERS WITNESS HOW GOD

HELPS THEM HELPS US.

OUR WHOLE FAMILY LOVES

IT."

Pat: OKAY, LET'S HAVE

SOME QUESTIONS.

Terry: RICHARD SAID,

"MY WIFE AND I HAD A

LOVING MARRIAGE FOR ALMOST

30 YEARS, SHE PASSED AWAY

IN 2016.

MY QUESTION IS, WHERE DID

THE QUOTE TILL DEATH DO US

PART COME FROM?

AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED,

SHE IS STILL MY WIFE.

AM I WRONG TO FEEL THIS

WAY?"

Pat: SHE IS STILL

YOUR WIFE.

BUT YOUR MARRIAGE ON EARTH

LIVES UNTIL TILL DEATH DO

US PART.

AT THE END OF DEATH,

YOU'RE FREE TO REMARRY,

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE.

YOUR BROTHER AND SISTER IS

NOT BOUND IF THE SPOUSE

DIES.

THAT'S JUST -- DEATH PARTS

YOUR MARRIAGE.

DOES THAT MEAN YOU CAN'T

CARRY HER IN YOUR HEART?

OF COURSE NOT.

Terry: MARIAM SAYS,

"I'M A FULL-TIME STEPMOM

TO OUR 13-YEAR-OLD WHO

LIVES WITH US.

HER BIOLOGICAL MOTHER GOES

IN AND OUT OF DRUG USE.

SHE RECENTLY STARTED

VIDEOING WITH HER.

I'M UNCOMFORTABLE.

HOW DO YOU FEEL I ADDRESS

THIS.

I FEEL A DISCONNECT WITH

MY HUSBAND."

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS

WITH YOUR HUSBAND, BUT HE

AND HIS FIRST WIFE WERE

MARRIED FIRST.

THE IDEA SHE STILL HAS

FEELINGS FOR HER FIRST

HUSBAND, YOU'VE GOT TO

LIVE WITH IT.

YOU CAME IN SECOND, AND I

DON'T KNOW WHAT LEGAL

RIGHTS YOU'VE GOT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO

SAY ON A THING LIKE THAT.

YOU'RE A STEPMOTHER, A

SECOND WIFE.

THE FIRST WIFE, BIRTH

MOTHER OF THE CHILD AND SO

FORTH -- YOU KNOW.

YOU HOPE SHE GETS FREE

FROM THE DRUG ADDICTION.

I GUESS -- I DON'T KNOW

BEYOND THAT WHAT

RELATIONSHIP SHE'LL HAVE

WITH HER HUSBAND.

> TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

IS FROM PSALM 66: "WE

WENT THROUGH FIRE AND

WATER, BUT YOU BROUGHT YOU

TO USTO A PLACE OF ABUNDANCE."

> TOMORROW, THE

CELEBRITY PASTOR WHO

MARRIED KIM KARDASHIAN AND

KANYE WEST IS HERE.

HE IS THE PASTOR WHO IS

GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT A

BOOK.

SO FOR TERRY AND ALL OF

US, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING WITH US.

TBLS.

GOD BLESS.
