COMING UP...A CRISIS

PREGNANCY CENTER FOR

EXPECTANT FATHERS.

WE'VE HAD MEN WALK IN

IT'S DOOR AND SAY, I NEED

HELP WITH MY GIRLFRIEND.

HOW THEY'RE SAVING

LIVES ALONG THE WAY.

I'M HERE FOR YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE THIS

WORK.

PLUS...PAT BOONE'S

SECRET OF SUCCESS.

LOTS OF MILK, LOTS OF

EXERCISE, AND A CLEAN

CONSCIOUS.

HIS 60 YEARS IN THE

SPOTLIGHT AND HIS VISION

FOR THE FUTURE, ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

YOU KNOW, YOU'VE HEARD A

LOT ABOUT THIS SUMMIT

BETWEEN KIM JONG-UN OF

NORTH KOREA AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

PRESIDENT TRUMP PRESIDES

OVER -- WHAT IS IT, A

$20 TRILLION ECONOMY, AND

I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW BIG

NORTH KOREA'S GROSS

DOMESTIC PRODUCT IS.

NORTH KOREA HAS ONLY $

$12 BILLION TOTAL GROSS

DOMESTIC PRODUCT.

VERMONT, ONE OF OUR

SMALLEST STATES, HAS THREE

TIMES THAT MUCH.

AND CALIFORNIA HAS

$2.7 TRILLION.

NOW, THAT'S WHAT THAT

LITTLE ISLAND OF

OPPRESSION HAS.

IT IS A POLICED STATE.

IT IS ESSENTIALLY ONE BIG

GHOUL LAAN WHERE PEOPLE ARE

TERRORIZED.

AND THE PRESIDENT THINKS

HE IS GOING TO SHAKE THAT

LOOSE.

I HOPE HE IS RIGHT,

BECAUSE THE THREAT OF A

NUCLEAR WAR OUT OF THAT --

EXCUSE ME, 12.5 TO $

$13 BILLION TOTAL D.G.P.,

THEY'VE MANAGED TO CREATE

ABOUT 30 NUCLEAR WARHEADS,

AND THEY'RE TRYING TO GET

THE DELIVERY MECHANISM.

SO ESSENTIALLY THEY'RE

SPENDING HALF OF THEIR

GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT AT

LEAST ON ARMS.

SO IF THEY GIVE THAT UP --

WENDY, $12 BILLION IS

PEANUTS.

Wendy: IT IS PEANUTS,

BUT THEY'VE GOT NUCLEAR

WEAPONS, SO WHAT DO YOU

DO?

BUT TO SEE THOSE TWO

SMILING AND SHAKING HANDS,

IT IS ALMOST LIKE A CHARM

OFFENSIVE GOING ON.

Pat: THE NORTH KOREAN

NEWSPAPERS WENT NUTS.

THEY SAY THIS IS SO GREAT.

IT ELEVATES OR SUPREME

LEADER, AND IT MAKES THAT

YOUNG DICTATOR LOOK LIKE

AN EQUAL FIGURE WITH THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

WHETHER THAT CHARM

OFFENSIVE WORKS, WE DON'T

KNOW.

BUT JUST THINK OF THAT.

LET ME SHOW YOU THAT ONE

MORE TIME.

I WANT TO LOOK AT THAT

GRAPHIC ONE MORE TIME.

LOOK AT THAT, IT IS ALMOST

$13 BILLION.

AND VERMONT -- VERMONT,

THE SMALLEST STATE,

$32 BILLION, AND

CALIFORNIA HAS

$2.7 TRILLION.

THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN OUR COUNTRY AND

THEIRS.

AND TO THINK YOU'RE GOING

TO TAKE A SLAVE ECONOMY

AND MAKE IT INTO A SUPER

POWER ECONOMIC FORCE, IT

IS JUST A PIPE DREAM,

UNLESS THEY'RE FREED AND

THE GOSPEL COMES IN,

FREEDOM COMES IN, FREEDOM

OF THE PRESS, FREEDOM OF

INNOVATION -- IT'S GOT TO

ALL BE THERE.

YOU DON'T GET WHAT WE'VE

GOT IN THIS COUNTRY BY

HAVING A DICTATORSHIP.

YOU GET IT BECAUSE WE ARE

A FREE PEOPLE.

AND WE ARE ABLE TO CREATE,

TO INNOVATE, AND TO

EXPERIMENT.

AND OUT OF THAT COMES THIS

EXTRAORDINARY ECONOMIC

ENGINE.

Wendy: AND, PAT, MOST

EXPERTS AGREE THE DEAL IS

A GOOD FIRST STEP, NOT

ONLY TOWARDS RIDDING NORTH

KOREA OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS,

BUT ALSO EASING CHRISTIAN

PERSECUTION THERE.

HEATHER SELLS HAS DETAILS.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT IS TOUTING NORTH

KOREA'S COMMITMENT TO RID

THE NORTH KOREAN PENINSULA

OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS, BUT

THE TWO LEADERS ALSO SAID

THEY NEED MORE

NEGOTIATIONS TO MAKE IT

HAPPEN.

THE PRESIDENT'S CRITICS

ARE EXPRESSING CONCERN.

WHAT WE HAVE IS A VERY

VAGUE FRAMEWORK.

IT IS CAUSE FOR HOPE, BUT

HARDLY CONTENT.

I READ THE STATEMENT,

AND IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME

TO SEE IF SOMETHING WAS

ACTUALLY AGREED TO OR NOT.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT'S COMMITMENT TO

CALL OFF MILITARY DRILLS

OFF THE KOREA KOREAN PENINSULA

CALL MANY BY SURPRISE.

President Trump:

WE'RE NEGOTIATING A VERY

COMPREHENSIVE COMPLETE

DEAL.

THE MILITARY EXERCISES

BEING PUT ON HOLD IS FINE

WITH ME BECAUSE IT GIVES

US SPACE.

Heather: SOME SEE THE

SUMMIT AS A STEP IN THE

RIGHT DIRECTION.

THE PRESIDENT SAID HE

TALKED ABOUT CHRISTIANS IN

NORTH KOREA, QUOTE, "VERY

STRONGLY WITH KIM

JONG-UN."

I'M ENCOURAGED THEY DID

BRING IT UP.

THEY DISCUSSED IT.

Heather: FRANKLIN

GRAHAM HAS DELIVERED

HUMANITARIAN AID TO NORTH

KOREA FOR DECADES, AND HE

SAID HE EXPECTS

PERSECUTION WILL TO SOME

DEGREE EASE.

NO QUESTION.

NO QUESTION.

I THINK THIS MEETING WITH

KIM JONG-UN AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS HUGE.

AND, YES, THE CHRISTIANS

ARE GOING TO BENEFIT IN

NORTH KOREA.

Heather: THE OPTICS

OF THE SUMMIT STILL HAVE

MUCH OF THE WORLD IN AWE.

THE TWO LEADERS SIDE BY

SIDE, AFTER DECADES OF

HOSTILITIES BETWEEN THE

TWO NATIONS.

SOME DEMOCRATS SAY IT WAS

A MISTAKE.

THIS WAS A BIG WIN FOR

KIM JONG-UN OF NORTH

KOREA.

HE GOT WHAT HIS FATHER AND

GRANDFATHER NEVER GOT: A

MEETING AS EQUALS ON THE

WORLD STAGE.

Heather: BUT

DEMOCRATIC POSTER PAT

PODEL SAYS THE PICTURES

ARE FANTASTIC, AND WILL

BUMP UP THE PRESIDENT'S

RATINGS.

I THINK THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO SEE

THIS RESOLVED.

IT WOULD BE IN THE

INTEREST OF PEACE AND TO

EVERYONE'S BENEFIT.

Heather: THE

PRESIDENT CLEARLY INTENDS

TO RIDE THE MOMENTUM,

TWEETING: "EVERYBODY CAN

NOW FEEL MUCH SAFER THAN

THE DAY I TOOK OFFICE."

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, WE ALSO

ALL WANT PEACE.

AND BLESSED ARE THE

PEACEMAKERS, THEY SHALL BE

CALLED THE SONS OF GOD.

AND, WELL, THE DONALD

PULLED IT OFF AGAIN.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

WE'VE GOT TO BE

ENCOURAGED.

NOBODY WANTS TO LIVE UNDER

THE THREAT OF BEING

INCINERATED WITH A NUCLEAR

BOMB.

AND TO THINK THERE IS A

COUNTRY THAT HAS AS MANY

AS 30 WORKING NUKES AND IS

DEVELOPING THE DELIVERY

MECHANISM FOR THEM THAT

COULD HIT THE UNITED

STATES -- TO GET THAT OFF

THE TABLE IS A BIG DEAL

FOR EVERYBODY.

AND SO WE'VE GOT TO BE

CONGRATULATING THE

PRESIDENT FOR THAT.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

ONCE AGAIN THE

PALESTINIANS ARE GOING

THROUGH THE UNITED NATIONS

TO PUBLICLY CONDEMN THE

NATION OF ISRAEL.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS MORE ON

OUR TOP STORIES FROM THE

CBN NEWSROOM.

Efrem: PAT,

PALESTINIANS ARE PUSHING

FOR A U.N. RESOLUTION,

EXPRESSING STRONG

DISAPPROVAL OF WHAT THEY

CALL EXCESSIVE USE OF

FORCE BY ISRAELI TROOPS

DEFENDING THE GAZA BORDER.

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY VOTE

IS SET FOR TODAY.

NIKKI HALEY WANTS AN

AMENDMENT CONDEMNING HAMAS

FOR FIRING ROCKETS INTO

ISRAEL AND INCITING

VIOLENCE ON THE GAZA

BORDER.

THE ATTACKS ON ISRAEL

PRESENT A CHALLENGE MOST

COUNTRIES HAVE NEVER

FACED.

Chris: CBN NEWS GOT A

RARE, UP-CLOSE LOOK AT THE

VIOLENCE ON THE BORDER OF

HAMAS-CONTROLLED GAZA.

WE'RE STANDING JUST A FEW

YARDS AWAY FROM THE

ISRAELI-GAZA BORDER.

THIS IS THE FRONT LINES OF

A MORE THAN TWO MONTH

BATTLE BETWEEN HAMAS AND

THE ISRAELI DEFENSE

FORCES.

SOLDIERS FACE DEADLY

FORCE.

TODAY WE'VE HAD THREE

GRENADES THROWN AT ISRAELI

TROOPS AT THIS PARTICULAR

LOCATION.

IT IS NOT A LEGITIMATE

AND CIVILIAN RIOT.

THE LEADER OF THE RIOT IS

HAMAS AND THEY ARE TRYING

TO CHALLENGE US.

Chris: THE I.D.F.

FACES DAUNTING MILITARY

CHALLENGES DEFENDING ITS

BORDER.

IF YOU TAKE CIVILIANS,

AND YOU PUT BETWEEN THEM

WOMEN AND CHILDREN, THEN

YOU MAKE OUR CHALLENGE ALL

OF THE TIME.

BUT WE HAVE THE RULES OF

ENGAGEMENT.

Chris: THOSE RULES

INCLUDE DROPPING LEAFLETS

BEFORE AN EXPECTED

DEMONSTRATION, WARNING

GAZANS TO STAY AWAY FROM

THE FENCE.

AND THE NEXT DAY THEY USE

LOUD SPEAKERS TO KEEP

PEOPLE AWAY.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Chris: THEN THEY

SHOOT TEAR GAS FOR THOSE

WHO APPROACH THE FENCE.

AND AFTER THAT, ONLY

SHOOTING IN THE AIR.

OR IF THEY WILL TRY TO

CROSS THE FENCE WITH USING

OF CUTTERS, THERE WILL BE

NO CHOICE, AND THEY WILL

HAVE TO SHOOT TO THEIR

FOOT.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE DO

BEFORE WE USE LETHAL

WEAPONS.

Chris: HE SAYS THEIR

PRIORITY IS PROTECTING

ISRAELIS.

NOBODY WANTS TO HURT

ISRAEL -- THAT'S NOT THEIR

PURPOSE.

THIS IS THE KIBBUTZ.

FOR THE SOLDIERS THAT ARE

DEPLOYED HERE, IT IS VERY

CLEAR: WE'RE HERE TO

DEFEND AGAINST A MASSIVE

AMOUNT OF VIOLENT RIOTERS

WHO ARE HIDING TERRORISTS

BEHIND THEM.

THEY WANT TO TEAR DOWN THE

FENCES AND GET INSIDE, AND

OUR JOB AS A MILITARY OF A

SOVEREIGN NATION IS TO

STOP THEM AND DEFEND OUR

ISRAELI CIVILIANS.

Chris: THE IDEA FACED

CRITICISM AT THE U.N.,

WORLD CAPITALS, AND THE

MEDIA.

TO THE CRITICS, I SAY

STAND IN OUR SHOES AND

WALK IN OUR BOOTS A FEW

MILES.

HAVE THOSE THOUSANDS OF

RIOTERS TRYING TO INVADE

INTO YOUR COUNTRY AND TRY

TO RISK OR THREATEN YOUR

CIVILIANS, AND THEN

CRITICIZE US.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, ON THE

ISRAELI-GAZA BORDER.

Efrem: PAT, BACK TO

YOU.

Pat: MY TAKE ON THIS

UNITED NATIONS' THING, I

WROTE A PAPER YEARS AGO,

AND I SUGGESTED THAT WE

SET UP A COMMUNITY OF

DEMOCRATIC NATIONS.

> AND IN SO DOING, YOU

WOULD CUT OUT MOST OF THE

DICTATORSHIP OF THE MIDDLE

EAST.

YOU WOULD CUT OUT THE

SOVIETS AND OTHERS, AND

ONLY HAVE THOSE WHO HAVE

LEGITIMATE REPRESENTATIVE

DEMOCRACIES IN THIS UNITED

NATIONS, THIS COUNCIL OF

DEMOCRATIC NATIONS.

I THINK THE UNITED

NATIONS' GENERAL ASSEMBLY

IS NOTHING BUT A FARCE.

IT IS HELD TOGETHER

BECAUSE OF U.S. MONEY.

WE DEFEND AND PAY FOR AT

LEAST A THIRD OF THEIR

BUDGET.

AND I THINK THE TIME HAS

COME TO SHUT THE PURSE

STRINGS AND SAY, WE CAN'T

STAND THIS.

THIS.

IT IS NOTHING BUT A

DEBATING SOCIETY OF

DICTATORS TO TALK EVIL

AGAINST ISRAEL AND THE

UNITED STATES.

THAT'S WHAT THE GENERAL

ASSEMBLY DOES.

THE SECURITY COUNCIL, WE

HAVE A VETO BECAUSE IT WAS

SET UP THAT WAY.

BUT IF WE REFUSE TO USE

OUR VETO, AS PRESIDENT

OBAMA DID, THEY CAN PUT

THROUGH A BUNCH OF -- WE

CAN'T PAY FOR THAT.

SO LET'S STOP IT.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO DO

IT, SO LET'S DEMAND

ANOTHER INTERNATIONAL

ORGANIZATION THAT WILL

REPRESENT OUR VALUES, NOT

A DEBATING GROUND FOR A

BUNCH OF LEFT-WING

DICTATORS.

Wendy: AMEN.

BUT NIKKI HALEY, SHE IS

KIND OF SHAMING THEM.

SHE HAS KIND OF TURNED THE

TABLES.

Pat: SHE IS A LONE

WOLF.

SHE CAN EXERCISE A VETO

OVER ACTIONS THAT REALLY

MEAN SOMETHING.

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS

NOTHING BUT A DEBATING

BODY, BUT, NEVERTHELESS,

IT DEBATES AND PASSES

RESOLUTIONS, WHICH ARE

UNIFORMALLY AGAINST

ISRAEL.

EVERY SINGLE TIME.

THERE IS NEVER A

RESOLUTION THAT THEY'VE

PASSED THAT PRAISES

ISRAEL.

EFREM?

Efrem: THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES VOTES ON

TWO IMMIGRATION BILLS NEXT

WEEK, EACH WITH A

DIFFERENT VISION FOR THE

FUTURE OF YOUNG PEOPLE

OFTEN CALLED DREAMERS.

ONE CONSERVATIVE BILL DOES

NOT OFFER A PATH FOR

CITIZENSHIP FOR THE

CHILDREN OF IMMIGRANTS WHO

CAME TO THE UNITED STATES

ILLEGALLY.

THE OTHER BILL OFFERS

CITIZENSHIP AND CALLS FOR

STRONGER SECURITY.

THE TWO VOTES WERE END A

PUSH BY MODERATES TO FORCE

VOTES ON OTHER IMMIGRATION

BILLS.

THEY PREFER MORE.

> IN DALLAS, TEXAS,

SOCIAL ISSUES LIKE SEXUAL

ABUSE ARE DRIVING THE

DISCUSSIONS AT THE

SOUTHERN BAPTIST ANNUAL

MEETING.

THE NOMINATION NOW HAS NEW

LEADERSHIP TO HELP ADDRESS

THE CRISIS.

Reporter: THIS YEAR'S

THEME, "TESTIFY," IS A

CALL FOR THE 15 MILLION

SOUTHERN BAPTISTS TO SPEAK

THE TRUTH BOTH INSIDE AND

OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.

FOR THE WORLD'S LARGEST

PROTESTANT DENOMINATION,

IT MEANT TAKING ON THE

ISSUE DOGGING THE

CONVENTION: SEXUAL ABUSE

AND THE VALUE OF WOMEN IN

THE CHURCH.

I SAY, WHAT IS GOD

TRYING TO TELL US.

Reporter: EACH CHAIR

WAS FILLED AS RELIGIOUS

LEADERS AND SURVIVORS,

LIKE THIS WOMAN, TACKLE

THE SUBJECT.

FOR NUBEL, TALKING ABOUT

THE CHURCH AND ITS

RESPONSE IS A STEP IN THE

RIGHT DIRECTION.

MY HOPE, AND I THINK

THE HOPE OF EVERYONE ON

THAT PANEL, WOULD BE THEY

WOULDN'T JUST LISTEN, BUT

THEY WOULD GO BACK AND DO,

DO SOMETHING.

Reporter: THIS

LEADER, PAIGE PATTERSON,

HELPED MOVE THINGS FORWARD

WHEN HE BACKED OUT OF

GIVING THE MAIN SERMON, A

DECISION FOLLOWING WEEKS

OF CRITICISM OF HOW HE

DEALT WITH PAST SEXUAL

ABUSE CASES.

THE CONTROVERSY CALLED ON

THIS GROUP TO CALL ON

SOUTHERN BAPTISTS TO

CREATE A SEXUAL DATA BASE.

I'M GLAD TO SEE THAT

THE PEOPLE IN THE SOUTHERN

BAPTIST CONVENTION ARE

TALKING ABOUT ABUSE, BUT

WORDS DON'T MEAN ANYTHING

WITHOUT ACTION.

WOMEN, WE LOVE YOU, WE

VALUE YOU, AND WE KNOW

THAT YOU HAVE DIFFERENT

CALLINGS THAT THE CHURCH

CAN BENEFIT FROM.

AND I THINK IT REALLY

ENERGIZES A LOT OF WOMEN

TO BE ABLE TO STAND UP AND

WANT TO BE A PART OF WHAT

THE CHURCH IS DOING.

Reporter: A NEW

LEADER NOW GETS THE

OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THIS

MOMENTUM FURTHER.

ON TUESDAY, THE CONVENTION

CHOSE J.D. GREER AS ITS

NEXT PRESIDENT.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS THAT HE

WANTS TO TACKLE THIS AND

OTHER TOUGH ISSUES, LIKE

RACE RELATIONS, IN THE

SPIRIT OF LOVE.

MY ENCOURAGEMENT FOR

THEM IS TO SEE THAT THE

SPIRIT OF GOD IS INTO

DIVERSIFYING HIS CHURCH.

THAT'S WHAT HE SHOWS US.

HE

HE SAYS IT IS THE GLORY OF

GOD.

WE CAN'T DO THAT IF WE

WALK AWAY.

I'M HOPING THERE WILL BE A

GENERATION OF PEOPLE THAT

WILL PUT UP WITH THE

DIFFICULTY OF HAVING THE

CONVERSATIONS AND WALKING

FORWARD TOGETHER.

Reporter: SOME HAVE

COMPARED THIS EVENT TO A

FAMILY REUNION.

LIKE AT FAMILY, THERE MAY

BE INTERNAL STRIFE AND

DISAGREEMENT, BUT THERE IS

ALSO A BOND THAT GOES

BEYOND BIOLOGICAL BLOOD

LINES, RATHER, THE BLOOD

OF JESUS, WHO SAYS THEY

FORGIVE, REDEEM, AND UNITE

THEM TO SEEK HEALING FOR

EVERYONE.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING IN DALLAS.

Efrem: CHARITABLE

GIVING IN THE UNITED

STATES HAS REACHED A

RECORD HIGH.

THE ANNUAL REPORT OF FILL

PHILANTHROPY SHOWS A MORE

THAN 5% INCREASE IN 2017,

PUTTING THE TOTAL AT MORE

THAN $410 BILLION.

THE REPORT ALSO INDICATES

MOST OF THE MONEY WENT TO

RELIGIOUS CAUSES.

CHURCHES AND RELIGIOUS

MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS

RECEIVED MORE THAN

$127 BILLION IN

CONTRIBUTION.

THEY CREATE CREDITED A STRONG

ECONOMY AND A BOOMING

STOCK MARKET FOR THE

INCREASES.

Pat: I LOVE TO HEAR

THAT.

I WOULD LOVE FOR CBN TO BE

PART OF THAT BOUNTY.

BUT IT DOES SHOW THAT

AMERICANS ARE VERY

GENEROUS PEOPLE.

WE'RE A GIVING NATION.

IT IS BETTER TO GIVE THAN

TO RECEIVE, AND PEOPLE

BELIEVE THAT.

AND THROUGHOUT THIS WORLD,

THE UNITED STATES HAS

ALWAYS BEEN THE GIVER.

WE GIVE.

WE GIVE TO HELP THE POOR,

THE DOWNTRODDEN, THE

HUNGRY, THE OPPRESSED.

THAT'S WHY AMERICA IS SO

IMPORTANT.

AND THAT'S WHY THE FORCES

OF EVIL HAVE OFTEN TRIED

TO DESTROY AMERICA.

AS A NATION, WE LEAD THE

WAY.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE A

LIGHT ON A HILL, AND WE

ARE THAT.

AND I'M GLAD I AM A

CITIZEN AND HAVE BEEN BORN

IN THIS GREAT NATION.

YOU KNOW, WAR WARREN BUFFETT

SAID HE WON THE LOTTERY,

AND I THINK WE WON THE

LOTTERY.

Wendy: WE REALLY DID,

PAT.

WHEN YOU TRAVEL ALL OVER,

LIKE YOU AND I HAVE, YOU

CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK TO

THE GOOD OLD U.S.A.

COMING

COMING UP, A PREGNANCY

CENTER THAT TREATS MEN.

SEE HOW THIS CENTER IS

HELPING FATHERS IN THE

FIGHT FOR LIFE.

Pat: THERE ARE NEARLY

3,000 CRISIS PREGNANCY

CENTERS ACROSS AMERICA.

AND MOST OF THEM FOCUS ON

WOMEN CAUGHT IN AN

UNPLANNED PREGNANCY.

ONE FLORIDA CENTER,

HOWEVER, CHOOSES A

DIFFERENT APPROACH.

AS CHARLENE AARON SHOWS

US, IT HELPS EXPECTANT

FATHERS.

Charlene: LOCATED

NEXT TO FLORIDA STATE

UNIVERSITY, A WOMEN'S

PREGNANCY IN TALLAHASSEE

ADDRESSES THE CRITICAL

NEEDS OF UNPLANNED

PREGNANCIES IN ITS

COMMUNITY.

STARTING IN 1985, ITS MAIN

MISSION IS TO RESCUE

BABIES FROM ABORTION,

OFFERING FREE PREGNANCY

TESTING, ADOPTION

REFERRALS, AND

ULTRASOUNDS.

80% OF OUR CLIENTS WILL

CARRY THEIR BABIES TO

TERM.

Charlene: YET BABIES

AREN'T THE ONLY ONES SAVED

HERE.

IT ALSO HAS A MINISTRY FOR

MEN, WHICH ENCOURAGES

FATHERS TO STAND IN THE

GAP AND FIGHT FOR LIFE,

FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND

THEIR FAMILIES.

WE'VE HAD MEN WALK IN

THE DOOR AND SAY, I NEED

HELP WITH MY GIRLFRIEND.

OR...I'VE GOT A SITUATION,

I'VE GOTTEN A GIRL

PREGNANT AND I DON'T KNOW

HOW TO HELP HER.

OR...MY GIRLFRIEND JUST

CALLED ME, AND SHE IS

DRIVING BACK FROM

JACKSONVILLE.

SHE TRIED TO HAVE AN

ABORTION.

SHE COULDN'T GET IT, AND I

JUST FOUND OUT SHE IS

PREGNANT, AND SHE WANTS ME

TO GET HER AN ABORTION IN

TALLAHASSEE, AND I DON'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Charlene: IN THE

CENTER'S, "JUST FOR MEN"

PROGRAM, MALE COUNSELLORS

WORK ONE-ON-ONE WITH MEN.

I'VE COUNSELLED THEM

MANY TIMES WITH THE GIRL

IN THE ROOM WITH US, AND I

KNOW THE IMPACT THAT IT

HAS.

BUT THEN I'LL CONNECT HIM

TO THE MAN, AND I'LL SEE

HIS BODY LANGUAGE CHANGE,

AND HIS EYES START LOOKING

AT THE MALE COUNSELLOR, HE

IS ENGAGED.

Charlene: THE CENTER

ALSO OFFERS AN ABORTION

RECOVERY PROGRAM.

COUNSELLOR FRANCES OFTEN

SHARES HIS PERSONAL STORY

TO HELP OTHERS LIKE HIM.

MY WIFE AND I, WE HAD

ONLY BEEN MAR MARRIED ABOUT 10

MONTHS, AND WE DID HAVE AN

ABORTION.

Charlene: HE NEEDED

MUCH HEALING.

I THINK I HAVE ASKED

MANY TIMES FOR GOD'S

FORGIVENESS FOR WHAT I'D

DONE.

IT OPENED UP TO ME THAT

THERE WERE ISSUES IN MY

LIFE THAT I HADN'T

FORGIVEN MYSELF FOR, WHICH

IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE

ABORTION.

Charlene: THAT

ENABLED HIM TO COUNSEL

OTHER MEN THROUGH THEIR

PAIN.

I'VE HAD GUYS TELL ME

IN THAT ROOM THINGS THEY

HAVE NEVER SHARED WITH

ANYBODY IN THEIR ENTIRE

LIFE.

I'M 69, AND THERE IS A

YOUNG AFRICAN-AMERICAN IN

THERE THAT IS 19 YEARS

OLD, AND AT THE END OF THE

SESSION, WE'RE BOTH CRYING

AND HUGGING EACH OTHER.

Charlene: HE OFTEN

SEES THAT HEALING EXTEND

TO OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS.

WE'VE HAD FATHERS GO

FROM -- WE'RE TALKING

50-YEAR-OLD MEN BRINGING

THEIR 16-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER

HERE THINKING THAT

ABORTION WAS THE BEST

THING, AND THEN MEETING

WITH A MALE COUNSELLOR,

AND COMING OUT OF THE

ROOM, SAYING TO HIS

16-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, BABY

GIRL, WE'VE GOT HIS.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS.

I'M HERE FOR YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE THIS

WORK.

Charlene: PRACTICAL

NEEDS MUST ALSO BE

ADDRESSED FOR THE

SOON-TO-BE-DADS.

A LOT OF THEM ARE IN

TOUGH SITUATIONS

FINANCIALLY.

THEY'RE IN BETWEEN JOBS,

LOOKING FOR JOBS.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN WORKING,

AND THEY REALIZE THEY HAVE

TO STEP UP THEIR GAME AND

ACTUALLY GET A JOB NOW.

I HELP THEM WITH THEIR JOB

SEARCH AND WITH THEIR

RESUMES.

Charlene: SEVERAL MEN

HAVE EVEN COME TO CHRIST.

WE'VE HAD MEN NOT EVEN

COME INTO THE CENTER, BUT

THE WOMAN GIVE US

PERMISSION TO CALL THEIR

BOYFRIEND.

AND THE MALE COUNSELLOR

CALLS THE BOYFRIEND, AND

THEY'RE GOING, REALLY,

RIEWYOU'RE INTERESTED IN ME?

WE'VE HAD COUNSELLORS

ACTUALLY LEAD THEM TO

JESUS ON THE PHONE.

NOT EXPECTING THIS PHONE

CALL TO BE THAT KIND OF

MOMENT.

Charlene: THE KIND OF

MOMENT STAFF HERE CALL

NOTHING SHORT OF

MIRACULOUS.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS,

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA.

Pat: YOU DON'T THINK

ABOUT THE MAN, BUT IF A

WOMAN HAS A CHILD AND SHE

DECIDES SHE IS GOING TO

ABORT THE CHILD, AND IT IS

HER BODY -- NO, IT IS NOT.

THE CHILD IS GOING TO LIVE

APART FROM HER IF YOU JUST

LEAVE IT ALONE.

SO THE CHILD SHOULD HAVE

SOME RIGHTS, BUT THEY

DON'T REALLY.

BUT THE FATHER SHOULD HAVE

SOME.

AND MAYBE HE WANTS TO KEEP

THE BABY, AND THE WOMAN

SAYS, NO, NO, I'M GOING TO

MAKE THE DECISION.

WELL, IN THIS CASE, THERE

IS A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN

GO AND GET SOME HELP.

IT IS INTERESTING.

Wendy: I LOVE IT.

IT IS A GREAT IDEA.

I LOVE HOW THAT ONE FATHER

CHANGED HIS MIND.

Pat: THAT'S WHAT YOU

NORMALLY DO.

MY DAUGHTER IS PREGNANT,

SO I WANT TO HUSTLE HER

OFF TO ONE OF THESE

ABORTION MILLS AND SHE'LL

GET FIXED UP, AND I WON'T

HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT.

BUT TO HAVE A FATHER SAY,

I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU,

DEAR, THAT'S A WONDERFUL

THING.

> WE'VE GOT SOMETHING

ELSE EXCITING.

SCOTT ROSS IS BACK IN THE

SADDLE.

Wendy: SCOTT ROSS

TAKES A WALK DOWN MEMORY

LANE WITH THE ONE AND ONLY

PAT BOONE.

I STILL DO "TOOTIE

FRUITY" AND "LOVE LETTERS

IN THE SAND."

NETANYAHU LOVED IT WHEN HE

WAS IN COLLEGE, MATCHING

ELVIS AND ME RECORD FOR

RECORD, AND HE LOVED

"SPEEDY GONZALES."

Wendy: AND PAT SHARES

HIS SECRET TO LONGEVITY.

Wendy: PAT BOONE IS

AN ICONIC ENTERTAINER.

IN THE LEAD '50S, HE WAS

THE SECOND LARGEST

CHARTING ARTIST BEHIND

ELVIS PRESLEY.

HE TOLD MORE THAN

45 MILLION RECORDS, AND

HAD 38 TOP HITS, AND

APPEARED IN MORE THAN 12

HOLLYWOOD FILMS.

SCOTT ROSS SAT DOWN WITH

HIM.

Reporter: IN THE

1950s, PAT BOONE

EMERCHEDEMERGEDAS ONE OF ROCK AND ROLL'S

TOP CROONERS.

PAT NOT ONLY RIVALLED

ELVIS ON THE MUSIC CHARTS,

BUT WAS SOON MAKING WAVES

ON THE SILVER SCREEN AND

TELEVISION.

HE CREDITS MUCH OF HIS

SUCCESS TO A MORAL COMPASS

GUIDED BY HIS FAITH IN

GOD.

> LONGEVITY, WHAT DO YOU

ATTRIBUTE IT TO?

I'VE BEEN ASKED SO MANY

TIMES, WHY DO YOU LOOK AND

ACT YOUNGER THAN WE KNOW

YOU ARE.

I TELL THEM THERE ARE

THREE THINGS: LOTS OF

MILK, LOTS OF EXERCISE,

AND A CLEAN CONSCIOUS.

THE MILK REFERS TO DIET.

AND EXERCISE IS TO BE

ATHLETIC.

AND A CLEAN CONSCIENCE.

AND THEY SAY, YOUR

CONSCIENCE NEVER GETS

DIRTY?

YES, BUT I KNOW WHERE TO

GO TO HAVE MY CONSCIENCE

CLEANED.

SO MANY OF THE THINGS THAT

SLOW US DOWN AND CRIPPLE

US THE DOCTORS SAY ARE

PSYCHOSEMTIC, GUILT,

ANXIETY, STRESS, FEAR.

I LET THE LORD BEAR MY

BURDENS.

AND HE HAS FORGIVEN ME MY

SINS.

SO I DON'T BEAR GUILT.

NOT THAT I HAVEN'T DONE

PLENTY OF THINGS TO HAVE

GUILT, BUT HE FORGAVE ME.

I'M FREE.

THAT MAKES FOR LONGEVITY.

Reporter: IN FACT,

PAT DECLINED A ROLE WITH

MARILYN MONROE, NOT

BECAUSE OF MARILYN, BUT

BECAUSE OF A SCRIPT AND A

STORY LINE HE COULDN'T

CONDONE.

ALTHOUGH THOSE THINGS ARE

IN THE PAST, PAT CONTINUES

TO ENTERTAIN AUDIENCE WITH

THE SONGS THAT HE LOVES

AND THE SONGS THAT HELPED

PUT HIM ON THE MAP.

I STILL DO "TOOTIE

FRUITY," AND LOVE LETTERS

IN THE SAND," AND "SPEEDY

GONZALES."

AND NETANYAHU LIKED ELVIS

PRESLEY AND I BOTH, BUT HE

LOVED "SPEEDY GONZALES."

AND WHENEVER I MEET HIM,

HE SAYS, HELLO, SPEEDY.

Reporter: AND YOU

WROTE THE LYRICS TO WHAT

IS ALMOST THE NATIONAL

ANTHEM IN ISRAEL.

YES.

ReporterIT WAS CHRISTMASEVE, AND SHIRLE Y WAS

SAYING, PAT, PLEASE, LET'S

GET OUR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

UNDER THE TREE, BUT I

SAID, PLEASE, ONE MORE

TIME.

BOM, BOM, BOM, AND THE

WORDS, "THIS LAND IS

MINE," AND I THOUGHT, THAT

IS THE WHOLE STORY OF

EXODUS.

BOM, BOM, BOM, "GOD GAVE

THIS LAND TO ME."

AND I THOUGHT, I HAVE TO

WRITE THIS DOWN.

I GRABBED A PIECE OF WHITE

PAPER AND STARTED WRITING

THE WORDS ALMOST AS FAST

AS I COULD WRITE.

AND THEY KEPT COMING TO

ME.

I HAD THE LYRIC ALL

WRITTEN IN LESS THAN 30

MINUTES.

AND I TURNED OVER THE

PIECE OF PAPER, AND IT WAS

A CHRISTMAS CARD.

I EVENTUALLY, A COUPLE OF

YEARS AGO, SUBMITTED, AT

THEIR REQUEST, THE

CHRISTMAS CARD TO THEM,

AND IT IS ATIA AT THE MUSEUM,

AND FOR ME, YOU CAN

IMAGINE, SCOTT, FOR A

YOUNG GENTILE GUY -- I WAS

YOUNG, BUT I'M STILL

GENTILE, BUT ADOPTED

JEWISH THROUGH THE

MESSIAH, YOU KNOW.

AND BEN YAHUDA APPEARS,

AND I SAID, WE'RE TRYING

TO GET ALL JEWISH KIDS TO

KNOW THOSE WORDS BY HEART,

LIKE A SECOND NATIONAL

ANTHEM.

Reporter: THE UNITED

STATES, WHERE WE ARE NOW,

LOOKING AT OUR

ENVIRONMENT, THE SOCIAL

MOOD, ALL OF THAT, WHAT DO

ARE YOU SEEING?

WHAT ARE YOUR

OBSERVATIONS?

ARE YOU ENCOURAGED OR

DISCOURAGED, WHAT?

WELL, BOTH.

I'M DISCOURAGED AT THE

BREAKUP AND DISCOURSE IN

CIVILITY.

THROUGH THE YEARS,

ENTERTAINMENT HAS

CONTRIBUTED GREATLY TO IT,

TO THE NUMBING OF

AMERICA'S CONSCIENCE AND

MORALS.

I THINK GOD IS LETTING ALL

THIS HAPPEN TO DRAW HIM

CLOSER TO HIM.

UNLESS WE BECOME AGAIN A

NATION UNDER GOD, OPENLY

PROCLAIMING OUR FREEDOMS

AND LIBERTIES COME FROM

HIM, AND THAT WE NEED TO

BE AGAIN DEVOTED TO HIM

UNASHAMEEDLY, OPENLY, AS A

PEOPLE, NOT JUST

INDIVIDUAL, BUT IF WE CAN

RETURN TO GOD, WHICH HE IS

WOOING US TO DO, WE CAN BE

A MIGHTY STRONG NATION

AGAIN.

Wendy: PAT BOONE'S,

HIS AMAZING LIFE.

Pat: HE HAS BEEN A

FRIEND FOR YEARS.

BUT I DIDN'T REALIZE -- I

WASN'T UP IN THE TEENY

BOPPER YEARS, BUT TO THINK

HE WAS MATCHING ELVIS

RECORD FOR RECORD --

Wendy: I KNOW, JUST

LIKE THAT.

Pat: HOW HE WROTE

"EXODUS," GOD JUST GAVE

HIM THE WORDS.

IT IS A MARVELOUS SONG.

Wendy: HE SAID HE GOT

IN 30 MINUTES THE WHOLE

LYRIC.

Pat: HE IS A

MARVELOUS GUY.

HE IS THE SAME BOONE AS

DANIEL BOONE.

Wendy: I DIDN'T KNOW

THAT.

Pat: OH, YEAH.

> I HAD A KNEE OPERATION

UP IN CHICAGO, AND THE

DOCTOR IS A WONDERFUL,

WONDERFUL MAN, WHO HAS A

DEGREE NOT ONLY FROM

MEDICAL SCHOOL, BUT FROM

M.I.T.

HE HAS A PHYSICS

BACKGROUND.

SO HE DEVELOPED A WHOLE

NEW THING FOR A KNEE.

AND I NEEDED A KNEE

REPLACEMENT.

SO I WENT TO DR. BURGER,

AND THEN I RECOMMENDED HIM

TO TWO BOONES, SO THE SAME

DAY TWO BOONES WERE IN THE

OPERATING ROOM GETTING

KNEE REPLACEMENTS.

ONE WAY PAT BOONE, AND THE

OTHER WAS BISHOP BOONE.

SO THE TWO BOONES WERE IN

THERE AT MY

RECOMMENDATION.

ANYHOW, PAT HAS AMAZING

YOUTH, AND WHAT A GREAT

GUY HE IS.

HE IS A DEAR FRIEND FOR

MANY YEARS.

HIS WIFE, SHIRLEY, HAS HAD

A LITTLE BIT OF ILLNESS

RECENTLY.

AND THEY'RE A TREMENDOUS

COUPLE.

BUT WHAT AN EXAMPLE HE HAS

SET IN HOLLYWOOD.

HE'S BEEN JUST A GREAT

GUY.

Wendy: WELL, IT IS

TIME FOR SOME E-MAIL.

HERE IS ONE FROM "S," "HOW

DO I STOP BEING ATTRACTED

TO SOMEONE WHOM I KNOW FOR

A FACT GOD DOES NOT WANT

ME TO BE WITH?"

Pat: HOW DOES A BEE

STOP BEING ATTRACTED TO

HONEY?

I DON'T KNOW.

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO SAY?

WELL, I THINK GET YOUR

MIND ON SOMETHING ELSE.

IF YOU NO GOD HAS SAID,

NO, THIS IS WRONG, THIS

RELATIONSHIP IS WRONG --

MAYBE YOU'RE ATTRACTED TO

A MARRIED MAN OR

SOMETHING.

AND THAT SHOULDN'T BE.

Wendy: OR WOMAN -- WE

DON'T KNOW THAT.

Pat: GET YOUR MIND ON

THE LORD AND STAY AWAY.

STAY AWAY.

AND THEN FOCUS ON

SOMETHING ELSE.

THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT.

YOU'VE GOT TO FOCUS ON THE

LORD, ON SPORTS -- ON

ANYTHING, BUT GET YOUR

MIND ON SOMETHING ELSE.

Wendy: AND THINK

ABOUT THE FACT THAT IF GOD

SAYS DON'T DO IT, DOWN THE

ROAD YOU'RE GOING TO PAY

THE PRICE.

Pat: YOU REALLY WILL,

BIG TIME.

THE LORD WARNS US BECAUSE

HE LOVES US.

HE IS NOT TRYING TO KEEP

US FROM SOMETHING GOOD.

HE IS TRYING TO KEEP US

FROM SOMETHING HURTFUL.

Wendy: HOLLY SAYS,

"DEAR PAT, I'VE BEEN A

CHRISTIAN FOR NEARLY 40

YEARS.

I WATCH "THE 700 CLUB"

EVERY DAY AND I HAVE HEARD

TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE

SAYING THEY'VE EXPERIENCED

FEELING GOD'S LOVE FOR

THEM.

I'VE PRAYED, ASKED THE

LORD TO LET ME FEEL HIS

LOVE, BUT I HAVEN'T.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I FEEL

HIS LOVE?"

Pat: WELL, IT IS NOT

A FEELING; IT'S A FACT.

YOU'RE ESTABLISHED ON THE

FACT THAT HE DIED FOR YOU.

THE WHOLE IDEA OF

CHRISTIANITY IS THAT JESUS

CHRIST LOVED US SO MUCH,

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

THAT HE GAVE HIS SON THAT

WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM

SHALL NOT PERISH.

AND THE LOVE IS BECAUSE

HIS SON CAME AND DIED FOR

YOU.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

SOME MUSHY EXPERIENCE TO

KNOW THAT.

JUST RECITE IT.

SAY SOMETHING OVER AND SO

FAR AGAIN: GOD LOVES ME.

GOD GAVE HIS SON FOR ME.

I RECEIVE HIS LOVE IN MY

LIFE.

SAY IT OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

Wendy: UGE GEN EUGENE SAYS,

"HI, PAT.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN WE

DIE, WE ARE WITH THE LORD.

SO WHY DO WE NEED OUR OLD,

DEAD BODIES TO BE RAISED

FROM THE GROUND?

ARE WE NOT ALREADY IN

HEAVEN, LOOKING BETTER AND

YOUNGER?"

Pat: YOU ARE LOOKING

BETTER.

PAUL SAID, HOW ARE WE

RAISED?

YOU LOOK AT A LITTLE SEED

OF WHEAT, DROPS IN THE

GROUND, AND THE NEXT THING

YOU KNOW, UP COMES THIS

BEAUTIFUL STALK OF WHEAT.

THE SAME THING WITH CORN.

ONE LITTLE KERNEL OF CORN

DROPS IN THE GROUND AND

THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW IS

YOU HAVE THIS FLOWERING

STOCK.

THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE.

THESE OLD BODIES OF

OURS -- LET'S FACE IT,

DUST TO DUST, ASHES TO

ASHES.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT THEM.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

SOMETHING TOTALLY

DIFFERENT.

AND THE RESURRECTION BODY

IS GOING TO BE GLORIOUS.

IT IIT WILL BE LIKE JESUS.

Wendy: CATHY SAYS,

"I'M A CHRISTIAN, AND I

HAVE BEEN PRAYING I WILL

DIE BECAUSE I DON'T WANT

TO LIVE ANYMORE.

IS IT WRONG TO PRAY TO

DIE?"

Pat: YOU REMEMBER THE

PROPHET WHO STOOD GENS

JEZEBELLE, AND HE SAID,

LORD, TAKE MY LIFE, I'M

NOT WORTHY TO LIVE.

AND OTHERS HAVE FLED FROM

EVIL AND THEY WANT TO DIE.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH WANTING TO LET THIS

LIFE END AND TO ENTER INTO

A NEW LIFE WITH THE LORD.

BUT SUICIDE ISN'T THE WAY

TO DO IT, TRUST ME.

SO I DON'T ENCOURAGE

SUICIDE.

BUT PAUL SAID, WHETHER TO

REMAIN IN THE FLESH OR TO

DEPART AND BE WITH THE

LORD, AND WE'RE ALWAYS IN

THAT DILEMMA.

IS IT WRONG TO WANT TO BE

WITH THE LORD?

NOT REALLY.

BUT WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS

LIVE OUR LIVES TO THE

FULLEST WHILE WE'RE HERE,

AND TO SEIZE EVERY

OPPORTUNITY THAT IS GIVEN

TO US BECAUSE THIS LIFE IS

THE ONLY ONE WE'RE GOING

TO HAVE.

AND SO HOW MUCH GOOD CAN

WE DO WHILE WE'RE STILL

ALIVE?

Wendy: HERE IS ONE

FROM LORENE: "I ATTENDED

A WOMEN'S SUMMIT A WHILE

AGO, AND THEY SAID THE

KING JAMES VERSION IS

INCORRECT.

IF THAT WERE THE CASE,

WOULDN'T ALL OF THE

TRANSLATIONS FOLLOWING THE

KING JAMES BE INCORRECT?"

Pat: I HAVEN'T HEARD

ABOUT ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

THE KING JAMES WAS

TRANSLATED INTO WHAT WAS

CALLED THE TEXAS

RECEPTIVES.

AND THAT, IN TURN, CAME

FROM -- MY MEMORY ESCAPES

ME -- BUT IT IS THE TEXAS

RECEPTIVES.

AND IN THE TEXAS

RECEPTIVES, IT IS NOT AS

ACCURATE AS SOME OF THE

MANUSCRIPTS WE CAN

DISCOVERED LATER.

THERE ARE SO-CALLED

CODUSIS THAT HAVE BETTER

TRANSLATIONS OF THE GREEK.

SO SOME OF THE

TRANSLATIONS THAT YOU

HAVE -- THE KING JAMES WAS

NOT NECESSARILY GIVEN ON

HIGH, BUT IT WASN'T

BECAUSE OF SOME NIECE OF

SOME KING.

THEY PICKED UP -- SCHOLARS

WHO WERE WORKING WITH THE

KING JAMES, THEY USED THE

TENDALE VERSION TO COPY A

GOOD PART OF IT.

SO THE LANGUAGE OF THE

KING JAMES IS MELODIOUS,

IT IS BRILLIANT, AND IT

HAS STOOD THE TEST OF

TIME.

I LIKE THE N.I.V. MYSELF

BECAUSE THEY'VE GOT

SCHOLARS GOING BACK TO

SEARCH THE EARLIER

MANUSCRIPTS.

SO YOU CAN DISCERN -- SO

IT IS EASY TO GO OVER THE

GREEK AND SO FORTH AND YOU

CAN FIND WHAT REALLY OUGHT

TO BE THERE.

YOU'LL FIND THE LATER

VERSIONS, THE ONES THAT

AREN'T TRUE, ALWAYS ARE

BIRBIGGER AND MORE AMPLIFIED

THAN THOSE THAT ARE

SHORTER.

THERE ARE PRINCIPLES OF

TRANSLATION THAT THEY

TEACH US IN SEMINARY.

Wendy: I ALWAYS THINK

ABOUT THE FACT THAT GOD IS

SO JEALOUS OF HIS WORD,

AND HE SAYS HIS WORD IS

ALIVE AND SHARPER THAN A

TWO-EDGED SWORD, AND HE IS

NOT GOING TO LET IT GET

DISTORTED BECAUSE HE KNOWS

WE NEED IT.

Pat: OF COURSE NOT.

BUT WE'RE GETTING CLOSER

AND CLOSER TO THE ACTUAL

PHOTOGRAPHS.

WE DON'T HAVE THE ACTUAL

PHOTOGRAPHS THAT PAUL

WROTE -- WE'VE GOT COPIES

OF THEM.

AND THE JEWS HAVE USED ONE

SET THAT IS PRESERVED, AND

IT GOES WAY BACK TO, OH, A

LONG TIME BEFORE THE LORD,

BEFORE JESUS.

AND SO THEIR VERSION OF

THE OLD TESTAMENT IS

PRETTY STRAIGHT WITH THE

ORIGINAL BECAUSE IT IS

CAREFULLY MONITORED.

ALL RIGHT.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD, A

WOMAN'S HEADACHE GAVE HER

DOCTOR CAUSE FOR CONCERN.

THE HEADACHE SOMETIMES

COULD BE CAUSED BY

BLOCKED, CAROTID ARTERIES.

SO HE SUGGESTED THAT I GO

AHEAD AND GET AN

ULTRASOUND.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

THAT ULTRASOUND REVEALED.

> PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING

FOR YOU AND YOUR NEEDS, SO

STAY WITH US.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A FEDERAL JUDGE UPHELD

STATE REGULATIONS

RESTRICTING MEDICATED

INDUCED ABORTIONS AT TWO

MISSOURI PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINICS.

THE U.S. JUDGE RULED

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DID NOT

PROVE ENOUGH WOMEN WILL BE

DENIED ACCESS TO ABORTIONS

UNDER STATE RULES IMPOSED

LAST YEAR.

IT IS THE SECOND RULING

AGAINST THE ORGANIZATION

AFTER IT FILED A LAWSUIT

LAST YEAR.

COURT-WATCHERS THINK THIS

RULING SHOWS THAT THE

JUDGE HAS DOUBTS ABOUT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WINNING

THE CASE IF IT GOES TO

TRIAL.

> A BILL TO LABEL GAY

CONVERSION THERAPY A

FRAUD.

250 PEOPLE PACKED A STATE

ROOM TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST

IT.

THEY PASSED THE BILL.

IT HAS ALREADY PASSED THE

STATE ASSEMBLY.

THE BILL WILL BAN THE

SELLING OR ADVERTISING OF

THERAPY TO HELP PEOPLE

CHANGE THEIR SEXUAL

ORIENTATION FROM

HOMOSEXUAL TO

HETEROSEXUAL.

THE BILL HAS BEEN AMENDED

TO ALLOW THE THERAPY TO

CONTINUE AS LONG AS IT IS

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MUCH MORE OF TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: AFTER WORKING

TWO DECADES IN A PRISON

FOR MEN, TODAY HONEY

FRENCH IS ENJOYING A

COMFORTABLE RETIREMENT.

AND JUST AS SHE REACHED

OUT TO INMATES OVER THE

YEARS, SHE CONTINUES TO

REACH OUT TO OTHERS, BUT

NOW SHE IS HELPING PEOPLE

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

Reporter: HONEY

FRENCH WAS A CORRECTIONAL

OFFICER IN A MEN'S PRISON

FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS.

SHE SAID THAT'S WHERE GOD

CALLED HER TO BE.

HE SENT ME TO THE

ROUGHEST, TOUGHEST BIKERS,

AND THEY WOULD CRY AS THEY

GIVE THEIR LIVES TO THE

LORD.

Reporter: HONEY IS A

CBN CHAIRMAN'S CIRCLE

MEMBER FROM CALIFORNIA.

SHE LOVES TO SUPPORT GOD'S

WORK, BUT ADMITS THAT

WASN'T ALWAYS THE CASE.

I WOULD GIVE ONCE IN A

WHILE, MAYBE TO A CANCER

CAUSE, BUT I WAS PRETTY

STINGY WITH MY INCOME, AND

I WAS DEPENDING ON MY BANK

ACCOUNT, NOT ON GOD'S

PROVISION.

Reporter: AS HER

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD

DEEPENED, HER PERSPECTIVE

CHANGED.

IT HIT ME: I CAN DO

ANYTHING GOD ASKS ME TO

DO.

I'M FREE.

I'M FREE!

AND I HAVE SO MUCH JOY.

Reporter: IN THE

MID-'70s, HONEY BECAME A

MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB."

IT WAS EASY TO GIVE.

IT WAS A JOY TO GIVE.

AND ESPECIALLY TO "THE 700

CLUB."

TO KNOW THAT THE MONEY IS

REALLY GOING TO GOOD

CAUSES.

AND THEN IT'S SHOWING

GOD'S LOVE TO THE PEOPLE,

BUT IT ALSO LEADS THEM TO

SALVATION.

Reporter: SHE GAVE

MORE OVER THE YEARS AS

CBN'S OUTREACH EXPANDED.

GIVING TO THE WAR

VETERANS, AND ESPECIALLY

THE CLEFT PALATE AND THE

CATARACT OPERATIONS, AND

TO KNOW THEY HAVE A FUTURE

AHEAD OF THEM BECAUSE

THEY'RE GETTING TRADES,

AND GOING TO SCHOOL, BUT

MAINLY THEY LEARN ABOUT

JESUS.

SEEING ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE

TRAVEL ALL OF THOSE HOURS

TO GO TO GET WATER ONCE OR

TWICE A DAY, AND THE WATER

IS SO FILTHY, AND CBN DUG

WELLS FOR THEM.

Reporter: HONEY

APPRECIATES THE HELP SHE

RECEIVES, TOO.

I DO CALL INTO "THE 700

CLUB" AND ASK FOR PRAYER.

AND IT IS REALLY NEAT TO

FIND ANOINTED PRAYER

WARRIORS ON THE OTHER END.

I REALLY, SINCERELY LOVE

GIVING TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S MY FAVORITE.

Wendy: I MET HONEY AT

ONE OF OUR RECENT CBN

PARTNER EVENTS, SUCH A

SWEET LADY.

WHAT A GREAT TESTIMONY.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FEEL

THAT JOY AND THAT FREEDOM

THAT SHE FELT BY JUST

HELPING PEOPLE ALL OVER

THE WORLD, WE INVITE YOU

TO DO THAT TODAY, TO GO TO

YOUR PHONES.

THERE IS THE NUMBER ON

YOUR SCREEN, TOLL-FREE:

1-800-700-7000.

AND SAY, YES, I WANT TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH, IS ALL IT

TAKES TO BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE WANT

TO BLESS YOU BACK WITH

PAT'S NEW TEACHING ON

ANGELS.

IF YOU'VE EVER WONDERED

ABOUT ANGELS, YOU'VE GOT

TO GET THIS.

THE STORIES IN HERE ARE

REALLY CAPTIVATING ABOUT

ANGELS.

SOMEBODY HAS ALREADY SEEN

IT, PAT.

TOM AND SHIRL FROM TULSA

SAY, "ANGELS IS WONDERFUL.

OUR GROUP IS DOING A

SESSION ON ANGELS, AND

YOUR STORY HAS HELP THE."

Pat: I'M SO GLAD.

> WE LIVE AND AN

ATMOSPHERE OF MIRACLES

AROUND HERE, AND WE ALMOST

TAKE IT FOR GRANTED, AND

WE SEE SO MANY OF THEM,

BUT THIS IS ONE THAT

REALLY STANDS OUT.

PAT KARNIG WENT TO HER

DOCTOR FOR AN ANNUAL

CHECKUP.

AND THEN WHEN SHE TOLD HIM

SHE HAD BEEN HAVING

HEADACHES FOR A WEEK, THE

DOCTOR BECAME CONCERNED.

SO HE ORDERED AN

ULTRASOUND FOR PAT, AND

THE RESULT WAS,

UNFORTUNATELY, WAY TOO

FAMILIAR FOR THE TWO-TIME

CANCER SURVIVOR.

Reporter: PAT KARNIG

STAYS PRETTY BUSY, TAKING

CARE OF HER HUSBAND, JACK,

AND THEIR SON, GARY.

MY HUSBAND IS NO LONGER

ABLE TO DRIVE, SO I AM THE

ONLY DRIVER.

GARY IS A

MENTALLY-CHALLENGED YOUNG

MAN.

HE LIVES AT HOME WITH US,

AND HE HAS FOR ABOUT THE

LAST 10 YEARS.

AND SO THERE IS JUST A LOT

ON MY PLATE.

Reporter: PAT SAW HER

DOCTOR FOR A CHECKUP IN

2017, AND TOLD HIM SHE HAD

BEEN HAVING HEADACHES FOR

ABOUT A WEEK.

HE SAID THAT A HEADACHE

SOMETIMES COULD BE CAUSED

BY BLOCKED CAROTID

ARTERIES, AND SO HE

SUGGESTED I GO AHEAD AND

GET AN ULTRASOUND.

Reporter: WHEN SHE

GOT HOME, SHE REALIZED SHE

HADN'T BEEN TAKING HER

BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION.

I KEEP IT IN A DRAWER

IN THE OTHER ROOM, BUT I

HAD FORGOTTEN TO OPEN THE

DRAWER AND GET THE

MEDICATION OUT WHEN I

FINISHED THE LAST BOTTLE.

I STARTED TAKING THAT

MEDICATION, AND THE

HEADACHES DISAPPEARED.

Reporter: JUST TO BE

SAFE, SHE KEPT THE

ULTRASOUND-POINT.

ULTRASOUND APPOINTMENT.

THE RESULTS RAISED A NEW

CONCERN.

I SAW IT ON THE SCREEN.

I SAW THIS AREA.

AND THEN THEY SAID, YOUR

DOCTOR WILL TALK TO YOU IN

48 HOURS.

SO I THOUGHT, THEY'VE

FOUND SOMETHING, BUT I'M

NOT GOING TO WORRY ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: THE

ULTRASOUND THAT REVEALED A

LUMP ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF

HER NECK THAT WAS PAINFUL

WHEN PRESSED.

HER DOCTOR SAID THEY WOULD

NEED A C.A.T. SCAN TO KNOW

MORE.

AS A TWO-TIME CANCER

SURVIVOR, PAT WASN'T

WORRIED BY THE NEWS.

I'VE BEEN THROUGH SO

MUCH BEFORE.

I JUST WASN'T GOING TO

BURDEN MYSELF WITH THAT.

THE TEST WOULD TAKE CARE

OF ITSELF.

Reporter: SHE PRAYED

ABOUT THE UPCOMING C.A.T.

SCAN AND ASKED FRIENDS TO

PRAY AS WELL.

THEN ON DECEMBER 20th,

AS SHE GOT HOME FROM AN

ERRAND, SHE TURNED ON "THE

700 CLUB" JUST IN TIME TO

CATCH THE LAST PART OF THE

SHOW.

WHEN I FLIPPED IT ON,

THEY WERE PRAYING FOR

PEOPLE, AND PAT GAVE A

SPECIFIC WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

THAT EXACTLY DESCRIBED THE

SITUATION I WAS FACING

WITH MY THROAT.

Pat: THERE IS A NECK

CONDITION -- IT MAY HAVE

BEEN THERE FOR A WHILE,

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, I WANT

YOU TO PUT YOUR HAND --

THERE IS A PLACE ON YOUR

NECK THAT HAS EXPANDED.

IT IS YOUR MUSCLE OR YOUR

NERVE, AND IT HURTS.

IT IS LIKE FIRE TO TOUCH

IT.

TOUCH YOUR HAND ON IT

RIGHT NOW IN TH.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE

HEALED.

THANK YOU, LORD.

I THOUGHT, THIS IS

GREAT.

THIS IS WONDERFUL.

I CAN'T WAIT TO GO AHEAD

AND HAVE THAT C.A.T. SCAN

DONE BECAUSE THE C.A.T.

SCAN WILL PROVE THAT GOD

IS REAL.

Reporter: SHE WENT

FOR THE C.A.T. SCAN THE

FOLLOWING WEEK.

WITHIN HOURS, SHE HEARD

FROM HER DOCTOR.

HE HAD ALREADY GOTTEN

IN RESULTS OF THE TEST,

AND HE SAID THERE IS NO

EVIDENCE OF ANYTHING

THERE.

AND I SAID, PRAISE GOD.

AND HE SAID, WELL, I'LL

SAY THE SAME THING.

SO IT WAS EXCITING.

IT WAS WONDERFUL.

THAT'S GOD'S LOVE.

AND THAT'S HIS CARE AND

THAT'S HIS PROTECTION FOR

US.

WE HAVE A GREAT GOD, BUT

HE KNOWS EVERY INTIMATE

DETAIL ABOUT US, AND THAT,

TO ME, IS AWESOME.

Pat: WE HAVE A GREAT

GOD, AND HE KNOWS

EVERYTHING.

HERE IS SOMEONE FROM

VIRGINIA, WHO LIVES IN THE

CITY OF EDMONTON, AND SHE

HAD BONE SPURS.

SHE IS 53 YEARS OLD, AND

HAD THIS AFFLICTION FOR

THE MAJORITY OF HER LIFE.

ON MAY 23rd OF THIS

YEAR, SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAMME AND PRAYING

THAT THE HOST WOULD

MENTION HER AFFLICTION.

AND WENDY, YOU SAID, GOD

IS TOUCHING FEET.

IF YOU'VE GOT ANYTHING

GOING ON WITH YOUR FEET,

PUT YOUR HANDS RIGHT

THERE.

GOD IS HEALING YOU AND

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

VIRGINIA SAID, IT'S ME.

AND THE NEXT MORNING SHE

WAS ABLE TO WALK FREELY

AND HAS HAD NO PROBLEM

WITH BONE SPURS.

Wendy: LUCY FROM OHIO

SUFFERED FOR OVER A MONTH

WITWITH A GROWTH ON THE SIDE

OF HER NECK.

SHE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" WHEN SHE HEARD YOU

SAY, PAT, "THERE IS A LADY

NAMED LUCY, AND YOU'VE GOT

A GROWTH ON THE SIDE OF

YOUR FACE.

YOU'VE CRIED OUT TO GOD.

TAKE YOUR HAND AND WIPE IT

ACROSS YOUR FACE AND THOSE

GROWTHS WILL GO AWAY."

LUCY KNEW THIS WORD WAS

FOR HER, AND THE SWELLING

RESOLVED.

Pat: PRAISE GOD.

FATHER, WE HOLD ON AND WE

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE

DOING.

LORD, WE DON'T UNDERSTAND.

YOU HAVE ALL KNOWLEDGE.

YOU HAVE ALL POWER.

THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU.

SOMEBODY, YOU'RE CHOKING,

AND THERE IS A PRESSURE IN

YOUR THROAT -- MICHAEL, I

BELIEVE IT IS -- JUST

TOUCH YOUR THROAT RIGHT

NOW AND SWALLOW.

THE LORD JUST HEALED YOU.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEONE NAMED BRIAN, AND

YOU'VE GOT THESE

DEBILITATING HEADACHES,

AND GOD IS DELIVERING YOU

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

BE FREE.

PRAISE THE LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Pat: MARY, YOU'VE

BEEN UNDER A TREMENDOUS

BURDEN FINANCIALLY.

GOD IS LIFTING THAT

BURDEN.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN WORKING

A COUPLE OF JOBS.

GOD IS GOING TO OPEN

ANOTHER POSITION FOR YOU,

AND YOU WILL BE BLESSED BY

GOD.

THE LORD IS TAKING CARE OF

HIS PEOPLE.

LORD, MINISTER TO THOSE IN

THIS AUDIENCE IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

GOD BLESS YOU.

> TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

IS FROM THE BOOK OF

ISAIAH: "AND BY HIS

STRIPES, WE ARE HEALED."

> WELL, ON TOMORROW'S

PROGRAM, WE'VE GOT A

STRIPPER WHO TURNED

DOMINATRIX.

SHE ESCAPED THE SEX

INDUSTRY AFTER 20 YEARS.

INTERESTING.

> FOR WENDY AND ALL OF

US, WE'LL SEE YOU LATER.

BYE-BYE.

THANK YOU.
