The 700 Club - August 1, 2018

A dead-end job comes to the end of the road when a prayer on TV opens new doors. Plus, find out what’s eating your gut bacteria and how to build a better gut. Read Transcript


- [Narrator] The followingprogram is sponsored by CBN.

- [Woman] Coming up, antibioticsare enemy number one.

- They'll kill the good guysas well as the bad guys.

- [Woman] Enemy number two is--

- [Woman] What we typicallyeat for breakfast,

lunch, and dinner.

- [Woman] And processedfoods are a triple threat.

- Gotta shut off the faucetand stop hurtin' the gut.

- [Woman] Find out what'seating your gut bacteria.

- [Man] Gotta figure outfirst what's trashing the gut.

- [Woman] And how to build a better gut.

On today's 700 Club.

- [Man] You've gotta stop hurting it.

(dramatic music)

- Welcome, ladies andgentlemen, to this edition

of The 700 Club.

Our feature on gut floraand the biomicrobe biome

has just been enormously successful.

We normally have, in ourprogram, 10,000 telephone calls

per day.

We've got up to 40,000 interms of people interested

in that material and we'lltell you more about it

but we've got a big show today.

Lorie'll be here but first of all,

America's, excuse me, (clears throat),

America's critical infrastructurefaces cyber attacks

that could literallycripple our way of life.

Now, the Department of Homeland Security

is taking action to protectour backing and energy sectors.

- That's right, Pat.

It's creating a National RiskManagement Center because

security officials saythe nations power grid

and economic systems are so vulnerable,

our very democracy could be in danger.

CBN's national security correspondent,

Erik Rosales brings usthis story from New York.

- [Erik] With nearly 90% ofour critical infrastructure

in private hands, mostof it interconnected,

intelligence top brass saythere is a growing crisis

that requires governmentand private companies

work together.

- We are in a crisis mode.

The CAT5 hurricane has been forecast

and now, we must prepare.

- If that weak link is a smaller business,

and that in turn connectsinto one of our bigger

supply chains, then nomatter how much work we do,

we would not have createdthe right defenses.

- The launch of the NationalRisk Management Center

was unveiled by the

Department of HomelandSecurity's secretary.

A dedicated hub to help private companies

to better coordinate reducing risks

and responding to cyber attacks.

- This will provide that focal point.

We will work with ourpartners in government

who will be on stage today and others,

to provide you what youneed to help propel,

to help mitigate, to helproot out the adversary

from your systems.

- [Erik] Last year, a globalattack blamed on North Korea

infected hundreds ofthousands of computers

in over 150 countries, damagingmultiple critical industries

from healthcare to telecommunications.

Cyber security expertssay the energy industry,

in particular, is notprepared to fend off attacks.

Recently, DHS officials briefedenergy industry officials

on targeted attacks by Russia hackers

who got so deep intosystems that they could've

flipped a switch and cutoff power to customers.

Vice President Mike Pence echoed the need

for the new informationsharing partnership.

- The President and I need you to continue

to be advocates in yourindustry and among your peers

for great cyber security collaboration.

- [Erik] During hisspeech, the Vice President

also called out Russiafor launching a brazen

multi-faceted cyber campaign to undermine

our democratic process.

- The United States ofAmerica will not tolerate

any foreign interference in our elections

from any nation state, not from Russia,

China, Iran, North Korea, or anyone else.

As President Trump said,we're not gonna have it.

- Pence ended his speechsaying the Trump administration

will continue to protect our liberties

and bring the cyber hackers to justice.

Erik Rosales, CBN News, New York.

- Thanks Erik.

We've been raising thealarm on this for some time.

It is really critical, ya know?

It just takes some littlekid with a high school degree

sitting at a garage someplaceto hack into our systems

and they've hacked the Defense Department.

They've hacked the Department of Energy.

They have hacked leadingbanks and department stores

and so forth.

They have stolen millions of records.

It is just a tragedy and wedon't have to be vulnerable.

The NSA is without peer among the nations

in its ability to launch cyber attacks

and I think we need to get active.

If somebody's coming after us,

we need to come after them harder

and we have the ability to do it.

But it's a frightening thingthat they could actually

shut down the power grid,

take away the electricpower of millions of people,

cause economic dislocation of our,

well our money supplyand our stockmarkets,

it's just horrible to think about.

So, anyhow, it's something.

I'm glad they're havinghigh level discussions,

but it's time to stoptalking and get action.

We've gotta have action toharden the grid immediately,

I mean not just way down inthe future, but right now.

Of course, there's so many things.

I mean, you can actually have an EMP blast

the thermonuclear bomb andalso, just a solar flare

can knock it out.

So we've got to dosomething and by the way,

Regent University now has aDepartment of Cyber Security.

We have a cyber rangethat is training people,

the Naval intelligencehas already had one group

of its executives comein for a week long course

in training how to ward off,it's like having a plane

on auto pilot to where you've got

pilots with simulations of various events.

We can simulate a cyberattack and then teach people

how to respond to it.

If you're interested, by the way,

these especially for executive teams,

it's 866-910-7615 andthat's kind of exciting.

We're at the cutting edge on that

and we have a sophisticated cyber range.

I'm told it may be the most sophisticated

of any university in Americaand people are being trained.

As I say, we're beingvisited by people from

serious government agenciesand also businesses.

So, so-called executive suite,

the C-suite of businesses cancome and all of their people,

four, five or six cansit on that cyber range

all at one time andthen, they can war game

and run through the scenarioof what an attack is like

and how you counter it for your business.

So it's very importantand that's the number

and if you're interested, call.

Isn't that exciting?

- Yeah, I think people are justwaking up to what a threat,

potential threat this really is.

Regent University is prepared.

- Well you know, it was a few years ago,

we didn't have computers.

For example, people keptledgers and they were all

written out in hand.

Now, everything's on computer and then,

the computers are tiedtogether across the country

and a little glitch in one of them

can take down the whole network

and that's what's so frightening.

- And disturbing to think itmight not be a rogue nation

like North Korea.

It could be a teenager in his basement.

- That's all it would take, exactly right

and they're going through a bunch of keys.

Alight, well in othernews, there's more evidence

that outside groups are tryingto undermine our democracy.

And they're using social media to do it.

Facebook has been hit with a big problem

and here's our CBN News bureauin Washington with John.

- That's right, Pat.

Facebook uncovered what itcalls sophisticated efforts

to politically manipulateAmerican politics

on the social network.

The company uncovered orremoved about 32 fake accounts

it said were involved in quote,

inauthentic political behavior.

While Facebook did notexplicitly blame Russia,

a spokesperson said, "It'sclear that whoever set up

"these accounts wentto much greater lengths

"to obscure their true identities

"than the Russian-basedinternet research agency

"has in the past."

The House IntelligenceCommittee will meet with

Facebook executives in September.

Well it's day two in thetrial of former Trump

campaign manager, PaulManafort, who faces charges

of bank fraud and tax evasion.

In opening statements Tuesday,

prosecutors say Manafortdirected tens of millions of

dollars into offshore accountsto use as personal income.

It's the first trial tocome from special council

Robert Mullers investigationinto alleged collusion

between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The presidents team pointsout that Manafort's trial

has nothing to do with the campaign.

- There's no informationincriminating of the president.

I know that for a fact.

They can squeeze him, PaulManafort does not know anything.

- Pat, one of the defenses for Manafort,

his attorneys are saying the businessman

left others to manage thedetails of his finances.

- I think he was up to his eyeballs

and working with theUkrainians and he made a huge

amount of money.

I mean, millions and millions of dollars.

Perhaps he hasn't declaredeverything on his taxes,

But this is not the mandatefor the special council.

He has not been given a mandateto investigate IRS cheating.

That's not what he's supposed to do

and for him to bring criminal charges

against somebody having to dowith financial improprieties

in his own personalaccount is just ridiculous.

So he's supposed tocheck on a Russian medley

in our election and we'renot sure if Paul Manaford

did that.

He sure was getting paid big bucks

to deal with the Ukrainianopposition party leaders

and he was a big thief.

It was Black, Manaford, and Stone.

They were the, CharlieBlack and Roger Stone

and Paul Manaford.

They were the big politicalconsultants some years ago

and he's still big andthey may put him to jail

on tax fraud but it's not the promise

of the Special Council.

He's in the wrong game and heshouldn't be indicting people

on this issue becausethat's not what he was

commissioned to do, John?

- Pat, those ragingwildfires consuming parts

of northern Californiaare creating their own

weather systems.

High winds combined withoff the scale temperatures

are creating what arecalled fire tornadoes,

a terrifying vortex of smoke and flame.

Witnesses described therare phenomenon as a

towering funnel of firewith powerful outer winds.

Seven deadly blazes havetorched more than 1,000

homes in California.

The Carr fire in the northis the most destructive fire

in the state's history.

Pat?

- There again, we don't know exactly

what the cost is gonnabe but the actual cost

of just fighting it is inthe hundreds of millions

of dollars, but that'sjust the start of it.

Think of the human suffering,think of the loss of property,

think of the devastationto tourism, to business,

all the way up and down the line.

It's in the billionsand billions of dollars.

As they say, this usedto have a fire season.

Now, it's a fire year, it's just,

this drought just continuesand this devastating,

my daughter Anne, is involvedwith the Mercy Chefs.

They are in Redding, Californiawhere those firefighters

are just being exhaustedby the amount of work

they've gotta do.

It's just a terrible thing,they're working night and day

to contain these fires.

So Mercy Chefs is outthere trying to provide

hot meals for them sothey can have some respite

from that work.

But it's devastating and I think we should

pray for California'cause this is going to,

it won't just affect California,

it'll forget the whole nation.

- And to pray for rain without lightning,

that's one of the requeststhat we're getting

because this time of year,that seems almost impossible

but with God, all things are possible.

He can do it.

- Well, that's the rainwithout lightning, OK.

John, what's next?

- Pat, a miraculous story out of Mexico,

a Mexican passenger jet withoutabout 100 people on board

went down in high winds buteveryone on board survived.

As Charlene Aaron reports, somewere even able to walk away.

- [Charlene] On its way to Mexico City,

Aeromexico flight 2431 crashed in a field

shortly after takeoff.

Video from the crashsite looked devastating,

the air craft ripped open, wings crumpled,

and firefighters trying to control flames.

Survivors say the plan bursts into flames

after it hit the groundbut stayed mostly intact.

While 49 people are in thehospital, no one was killed.

Some on the ground arecalling it a miracle.

This woman says she and herson jumped out of a hole

in the plane's fuselage.

"I unbuckled my son's seatbeltand we got out that way.

"We jumped."

Other passengers managedto escape the wreckage

as firefighters raced to thescene to put out the fire.

A Catholic priest from Chicagobroke his arm in the crash.

He called his church totell them he survived.

- (speaking foreignlanguage) more or less OK.

He's been checking how he's doing.

His body probably has some broken bones.

- [Charlene] The planecarrying 97 passengers

and four crew members had justtaken off in a blustery storm

from an airport in DurangoState when it went down

and skidded to a stop.

The state's governor says the pilots were

attempting to abort just after takeoff,

but it was too late.

Meanwhile, the plane'spilot is in critical,

but stable condition.

Joy replacing sorrowfor what could've been

a tragic ending.

- Let me tell you one thing, Sunday,

gonna be a lot of peoplespraying and asking for him.

- [Charlene] Charlene Aaron, CBN News.

- Thanks Charlene.

Pat, when you look at that footage,

miracle is the only wordto describe the fact

that no one was killed.

- Unbelievable and it'sjust a miracle of God.

So we're delighted.

Tragedy like that, itlooked like the whole plane

was taken apart and every single passenger

should've died and that none of em did,

it's a miracle and forthat, we are grateful.

Wendy, we've got someexciting things coming up.

- We do, Pat.

Coming up, enemy numberone of a healthy gut.

- Antibiotics are equal opportunity drugs.

They kill the good guysas well as the bad guys.

- [Wendy] Learn what you needto avoid in order to build

a better gut, as our seriescontinues right after this.

(upbeat music)

- It's the cutting edge of medicine.

Researchers by thehundreds are now teaming

to discover this part ofour body that has gone

unnoticed for so many years.

People are suffering from overweight.

They're suffering fromautoimmune diseases.

I look at advertisementsfrom various medications

on the television and so manyof them relate to problems

that are caused by theso-called microbiome,

these things in your gut.

You have as many little microbes,little things in your gut

as you have cells in your body.

This is a whole separatepart of your anatomy

which controls your healthand it controls your moods.

It controls your appetite.

It controls your weight gain.

It goes on and on andon and having to do with

keeping you healthy or making you sick

and all week long, we'vebeen telling you how

an unhealthy gut leadsto weight gain, disease,

and all kinds of health problems.

Today we're going to show youthe worse things you can do

to that microbiome, to that gut.

Medical reporter, Lorie Johnson,

explains the ways we abusethis vital part of our anatomy.

- C-sections, babyformula, life-saving drugs

and convenience foods.

We tend to think thesethings make our lives better

starting from birth, butturns out they can seriously

mess up the balance ofgood and bad bacteria

in our bodies.

- So, we wanna keep thosenumbers in a composition

of the microbiome right where it oughta be

in perfect harmony.

- [Lorie] Nearly a centuryago, the world rejoiced

when Alexander Flemingdeveloped the first antibiotic.

Penicillin would targetbacterial infections

that wiped out millions.

Since then, many doctorsfrequently turn to these so-called

miracle drugs, often notconsidering the downside.

- We know that almostall cases of bronchitis

where you cough, basically,where the large airways

get inflamed with viruses,

almost always, it's just a virus.

That's not to mean it's trivial disease

but we don't haveantibiotics for 99% of them.

And yet, 70% of physiciansprescribe antibiotics

for bronchitis.

- [Lorie] And thoseantibiotics target all bacteria

in our body, even the kindwe need to keep us healthy.

- Antibiotics are equal opportunity drugs

that have killed the goodguys as well as the bad guys.

- [Lorie] GastroenterologistsGerard Mullin,

author of The Gut Balance Revolution,

says children, in particular,often lack the good bacteria

they need thanks to wellmeaning pediatricians,

protective parents, andover-prescribed antibiotics.

- They're overusedindicriminately in children

with earaches and sore throats

because there's beenlinkages not only to obesity

but also autoimmune diseasessuch as inflammatory

bowel disease where they can directly link

the number of doses ofantibiotics as a child

to the probability ofdeveloping IBD later in life.

- [Lorie] Studies show justone course of antibiotics

can disrupt the gut microbiome for years.

What's worse, antibioticsoften enter our bodies

without a prescriptionbecause of what we eat.

A majority of the antibioticsused in our country

go into animal feed.

- Just in conventional red meat,

that there's enough antibiotics in those,

ya know, those cows that are raised

with hormones and what antibiotics.

Those are enough, ifyou eat enough red meat

within a week or so,that's enough to change

the microbiome unfavorably.

- [Lorie] And science proves it.

New York Universityresearchers were able to make

lab mice obese and diabeticby proportionately giving them

the same amount of antibioticsfound in our meat supply.

So, in trying to build a bettergut, remember antibiotics

are enemy number one.

Running a close second isthe standard American diet,

what's known as sad.

It's this kind of stuff,what we typically eat

for breakfast, lunch, and dinner,

plus the good that'smissing from these meals.

- Gotta figure out firstwhat's trashing the gut,

gotta shut off the faucetand stop hurting the gut.

The gut'll heal itself overa long time but you gotta

stop hurting it.

- [Lorie] Consider processedfoods a triple threat.

They're too sweet, contain no fiber,

and are chock full of strange chemicals.

The Mayo Clinic's Dr. Purna Kashyap says

the culprits tend tohide in the small writing

on the list of ingredients.

- It's good to read the fine print because

there's usually a smallline at the end which says

emulsifiers or additives.

- [Lorie] Dr. Gail Cresci ofthe Cleveland Clinic agrees

that digesting things not found in nature

can cause dangerous inflammation.

- And you think about processed foods,

there's a lot of foreignchemicals that are in

the processed foods andthese are what's called

xenobiotics, so it meansthat it's a foreign chemical,

like it's a compound andthe microbiota has to

be able to deal with that.

- [Lorie] And watch outfor words ending in ose,

such as dextrose, maltrose, and fructose.

They are added sugars,which believe it or not,

make us fat and starveus at the same time.

They rob the bacteria's food supply

because our body absorbssugar before it even gets

to our intestines.

- Our body is very efficient in using it,

which means we're gonnaslurp it up right away

and as a result, the bacteriathen has to try to get

food from our lining or otherplaces so it can harm us

because the bacteria are now starving

and they will have torely on our gut lining

to get drinks which havejust high amounts of

glucose, fructose.

These are the ones which are gonna sort of

create a artificial state of starvation,

not for you but for the bacteria.

They'll definitely give you energy,

but it's not gonna begood for your bacteria.

- [Lorie] But don't thinkyou can replace sugar

with artificial sweeteners.

They are just as bad, if not worse.

- Different bacteriaare able to take these

artificial sweetenersand then they actually

are able to extract morecaLoriees from the diet

and this is linked with insulinresistance and weight gain.

- So it's rhetorical thatwe're taking zero calorie

artificial sweeteners whichharm the gut microbiome

and ultimately cause us to gain weight

when the purpose was to not gain weight.

- [Lorie] When it comes to gut microbiome,

the first two years set thestage for the rest of life.

Believe it or not, the way a baby is born,

the type of deliverymakes a big difference.

So does the kind ofnutrition the baby receives.

Dr. Heidi Nelson saysC-sections and formula

provide inferior bacteria compared with

their more natural counterparts.

- There is a differencebetween a vaginal birth

and the Ceserean birthbecause the child which is

more or less sterile inside the womb

and as they deliverthrough the vaginal canal,

it's understood that theyget the microbial population

from their mom, thatexposure from the mother

at that time and the same typeof experience would hold true

for breastmilk versus a bottle.

You wanna try to get the rightbugs set up in the child.

- Well if that doesn't scare ya to death,

I don't know who would.

Lorie, it looks like we're under assault.

I feel like, what canyou eat? It's all bad!

- Vegetables!

Food that God gave us.

Yes, those are the good things.

- Well you talk about all these processed,

go through the list of some of the stuff.

I mean, you go to theaverage grocery store

and what do you see?

You've got cereals, you've got crackers,

you've got bread, you'vegot all these things.

And you got meat.

Tell us about it.

- Well, first of all, the meat.

Clearly, all the expertsI spoke with said that

antibiotics assault ourgut microbiome the worst

by very definition,antibiotics kill bacteria.

That's great and I don't,I need it to be heard.

Antibiotics save lives.

Antibiotics are one of thegreatest things ever invented.

Antibiotics kill terriblebacteria like leprosy

and the plague, butantibiotics do nothing against

viral infections, like the flu.

So, antibiotics are wonderfullife-saving treatments,

but they're overused whenthey're prescribed for viruses.

They kill it, so antibioticsat the doctors office,

sometimes that could be a problem.

Antibiotics in our foodis always a problem.

And people who raise animalsfor food know that if you

give them antibiotics,they'll get fat fast.

So we need to stop eatingfood, meat, that has

antibiotics in them.

- You know better!

You go in the grocerystore and it doesn't say

these are laced with antibiotics.

- Right but the ones thatdon't have antibiotics,

they'll say it.

So you know that you can buy meat

that does not have antibioticsin it because it'll say it

in big letters and it's more expensive.

So, yeah.

- But it will say it?

- Oh it will say it.

Same thing with all the restaurants,

if they're not saying anything about where

the meat came from, youcan pretty well be assured

that it was raised with antibiotics.

But some of these finerrestaurants will say on the menu,

the meat we serve wasnot given antibiotics.

So yes, people can findthe meat that was not

given antibiotics and we'retalking about beef, pork,

chicken, poultry, and also eggs.

- Eggs too?- And also fish.

- Another thing is a lotof these farm raised fish

are given antibiotics because

it makes them big fast.- That's awful!

- Ya know, the government ought to step in

and do something on this.

Is the FDA gonna do anything to stop it?

- You're so smart!

They did!

That's so funny that youbrought that up because yes,

the FDA recently said OK,people who raise meat and fish

for food, you're notallowed to just give them

antibiotics to make them fat.

But you can give themantibiotics if they're sick

or if you have reason tobelieve that they might be sick.

So now, we know that peoplewho raise these meats,

raise these animals formeat have found a lot of

loopholes to give themantibiotics and try to justify it.

But yes, to answer yourquestion, the government

did step in to try to stop this.

- How about all thesethings on the labels?

They talked about thelittle stuff on the labels.

Most housewives go grocery shopping,

they don't read all that fine print.

- Right, the domestic engineers.

It's true, if you don't know what it is,

look on the list of ingredients.

Don't look at all the fabulousadvertising on the front.

That's just a billboard.

Look at the list ofingredients and if there are

a lot of ingredients, stay away from it.

If there are ingredientsthat you don't recognize,

stay away from it because our microbiome

does not know what to do.

They don't know how to digest these things

and it messes everything up.

They receive these foreign chemicals

and they're like, "I don'tknow what to do with this.

"Oh well, I'll do the best I can."

- I used to think that SweetN' Low was good for ya.

Now apparently, it's not.

Splenda, you get Splendaby taking normal sugar

and exposing it to chemicalswhich change the composition.

What does that do to this microbiome?

- It really ruins it.

It's just very bad.

So people should stay awayfrom artificial sweeteners

without question and then when it comes to

regular sweeteners, natural sweeteners

like sugar or honey, they'reOK, but do them in moderation.

- Sure, well I'm a fan of Stevia.

I think that's natural but--

- Stevia's actually OK asfar as a good sweetener.

It is natural.

- These things kill the gut bacteria?

They assault it?

- They do and what happensis we have a certain amount

of gut bacteria and a lot of times,

with the antibiotics, they goaway and then with our diet,

a lot of times, the foodsthat we eat don't feed

the good bacteria and so, they die,

or else they greatly diminishand then the bad bacteria

grow up and start taking over.

- Alright, so tomorrowyou're gonna talk about

what we ought to do tonurture it but I just wanna

say while we've got on the subject,

people ought to go andeat fresh vegetables.

- Right, right.

Our bacteria are living creatures.

They're alive, so we need tomake sure that we plant them

in our gut but then we have to feed them

and what they love to eat are things

that are called prebiotics.

No one knows what prebiotics are.

So, to put it in plainlanguage, it's fiber.

Mostly vegetables, but alsofresh fruit and whole grains

and beans.

- [Pat] Beans, I'm a fan of beans.

- Me too! They're great.

So tomorrow, we aregoing to be talking about

all the best things youcan do for your gut.

This is the climax.

Today was all the worstthings you can do to your gut,

kind of a downer.

Tomorrow is going to be more hopeful.

- Do you watch some of thecommercials on television

about things that are being advertised

and the diseases youthink, every one of those

relates somehow to somedeficiency in our gut.

Isn't that true?

- It is true and Americanshave worse guts than people

in developing countries.

Because of our food and our antibiotics.

Yeah, so we need to try to build it back.

But you know, doctorsdidn't know and every doctor

I've ever met has alwayshad their patient's

best interest at heart andwhen they were prescribing

these antibiotics, theywere really trying to do

what was best for their patient.

They didn't know, no one knewuntil just so very recently,

we need our good bacteria.

We depend on it.

- You know, you go tothe dentist, for example,

if you're having a tooth infection.

Routinely, they give you antibiotics.

I mean, it's just sorta like,and what does somebody do

if they're watching this program?

- Well, this is wherediscernment comes in.

We need to pray for discernment.

We need to know, becauseas I said, you know,

if it's a bacterialinfection, sometimes bacterial

infections can be deadlyand we need antibiotics.

We're blessed to have them.

But are they necessary?

They're never necessary ifyou have a viral infection

and sometimes doctorscan't tell the difference

because the symptoms are thesame and the only way to know

if a patient has a viralinfection or a bacterial infection

is if they test them andsometimes it takes three days

to get the test results back.- What about pneumonia?

- Pneumonia is a bacterialinfection, but the flu

is a viral infection.

So antibiotics don't doanything for the flu.

But if someone comes in andthey have flu-like symptoms,

the doctor's probablythinking, this is probably

a viral infection and anantibiotics not gonna help them,

but uh oh, what if itturns into pneumonia?

And an antibiotic will.

So, give em the antibiotic.

What harm can it do?

Well now we know that it cando harm to the gut bacteria.

- We did a series severalyears ago actually

about what they're putting in soup

and there's something calledmonosodium glutamate, MSG,

and it's a flavor enhancer,

and it's a excitotoxin andI pointed out and ya know,

what is it, the Italian soup--

- [Lorie] Progresso?

- Progresso that doesn't have MSG in it,

but Campbell soup does.

I was looking at a labelwith Campbell's soup

and they've put MSG back in it.

- Uh oh, well that makes it taste so good

and if you're selling food,you want it to taste good.

- [Pat] What does MSG do to ya?

- It is so bad.

This is one of the worstadditives that you can have.

Monosodium glutamate, that'swhat it looks like on the label

but we nickname it MSG,but it is an excitotoxin

and it does cause all typesof, it's terrible for your

gut bacteria.

- [Pat] It is terrible?

- Oh yes.

So people should stay away from that.

If you can't pronounce it, don't eat it.

- Well it's a shame Campbell's soup.

I mean, I held one up here on the show

and I read the label and low and behold,

I just looked at a can of it.

Progresso does not havethem, does not put in MSG,

but Chinese food has it.

- Oh yes, a lot.

- And it makes you sleepy, dopey.

- Yeah.

- There's a restaurant in our community

I stopped going to because I'd get through

and I'd be so sleepy and it was,

they loaded the food with MSG.

- That's why, but itdoes enhance the flavor

and Accent, you knowthat stuff that you put

and I'm usually, gotmy piece of chocolate.

No, that's not always true.

But she's very inspirational in that way

for all of us and so, I'm just so thankful

So I did have a salad fordinner last night, Lorie.

Alright, well up next,a new boss makes a young

worker miserable.

- I had anxiety.

I just absolutely dreaded ya know,

waking up the next day to go to work.

I couldn't sleep.

I just made myself sick.

(upbeat music)

After a new boss tookover, Lori Vaughn felt

trapped in a job she hated.

The stress got so bad, itliterally made her sick.

Lori thought she wasstuck until she received

a supernatural answerto her desperate prayer

for relief.

(soft piano)

- [Narrator] Lori Vaughnhad always loved her job

at a local insurance agency.

- I answered the phones and took payments

and just basicallymanaged the whole office.

It was awesome.

I had a wonderful boss.

He was great to me and I loved coming in.

- [Narrator] Then, her boss retired.

His replacement startedmaking a lot of changes

in the way they did their jobs.

Things were going smoothly at first but,

as months went on, itjust started to get to me.

- [Narrator] Now, at least once a week,

Lori was required towork at the sister office

over an hour away.

- Everything in the officewas just changing completely.

Going to the different location,

missing my small town people, and it was

very different than it was before.

It didn't feel like home anymore.

I just got extremely stressed out.

I started hating my job.

- [Narrator] The stress startedto affect her life at home.

- At home, I had anxiety.

I just absolutely dreadedwaking up the next day

to go to work.

I looked forward to the weekend

more than I ever did in my life.

I couldn't sleep.

I just made myself sick.

- [Narrator] Lori thoughtabout looking for another job,

but feared her lack ofcollege education would

hinder her possibilities.

- I didn't get theeducation that I should've.

I played around.

I just felt like everythingwas just over my head.

- [Narrator] For twomonths, she'd prayed for God

to show her his plan for her life.

- I kept asking him to speakto me and to let me know

what to do and I prayedfor him to have his will

in my life.

- [Narrator] One Fridaymorning, Lori was ready to quit.

- My boss had just told me the day before

that he wanted me to beat the other location

three days a week.

So, I was very emotional.

I felt like I was abandoning my customers

and I just, I just knewit was time to move on.

- [Narrator] Like everymorning, Lori turned on

The 700 Club at her desk.

Terry and Gordon were praying.

- Someone else, you are sodiscontented with your job

and you blame yourselfbecause you didn't get

education when you couldhave and should have.

You just played instead.

God's got something fresh for you.

Stop looking at what you don't have

and begin to thank himbefore you even see it.

It's on the way.

- I just jumped up andstarted praising God.

I was crying.

So, that right therewas all I needed to know

because that was my personal,private prayer with God.

I just felt peace.

I knew that that was God letting me know

I was gonna be OK.

- [Narrator] Tuesdayof the very next week,

Lori interviewed withanother insurance agency

near her home and was offeredthe job that same day.

- It's better atmosphere.

The women I work with,they're Christians too

and it's close to home,so there's no traveling.

I'm gonna be at one office.

- [Narrator] Today, Lori haspassed the test to become

an insurance agent with her new company

and enjoys spending time with her family.

She's giving all the praise to God.

- He's given me peace.

I just feel peace and I just know that

he wants me there.

I don't know what he's gonnado but I know he's gonna

take care of me.

He's been good to me my entire life.

- God cares about whatyou're going through.

He cares about your job.

He doesn't want your job to make you sick.

You've got some praise reports.

- I do.

This is Sheila.

She lived in Pueblo, Colorado.

She prayed fervently forher brother's healing

from pancreatic cancer.

In addition to calling our prayer center,

she was watching our programhoping one of the hosts

would mention that disease.

On his birthday, Wendy, yougave a word of knowledge,

quote, "somebody was beinghealed from pancreatic cancer."

Stella's brother was totally healed.

She said the doctors arecompletely awestruck.

Took place on his birthday!

- His birthday, I love that, God is good.

- Yeah, what you got?

was crippled for 10years and spent much time

going back and forth tomedical appointments.

One day he was watchingTV and he overheard

you give a word of knowledge, Pat,

saying there was aperson with back problems

whom God was healing.

Alfred immediatelyraised his hands and the

Holy Spirit took over.

The next day, his back washealed, and he could bend over

and touch the floor withthe palm of his hands.

After 10 years, wow, praise God.

- Well you know, we don't know them.

We live in an atmosphere ofmiracles because God is God

and he is the author of life.

He's the creator of all things

and the God we serve is an awesome God.

So, when we pray, we'reasking him to speak through us

to you and when we declare it,

Pat and Wendy will be back with more of

The 700 Club right after this.

(intense music)

- Welcome back to The 700 Club.

It's time for your questionsand some honest answers

from Pat.

We'll start with this one from Carole.

She says, "How does a word of knowledge or

"word of wisdom come to you?"

Pat?

- Well, if you read the 12thchapter of 1st Corinthians,

you find that there's certain enablements

of the Holy Spirit.

We've used the term gifts.

We've heard the term charismata.

Ya know, one has to do with prophecy,

another speaking in tongues,

interpretation of tongue,and one is a word of wisdom

which has to do withessentially the future

and a word of knowledge which has to do

with something that is notavailable to the senses,

but is spoken by the Holy Spirit.

It's just that simple.

Ya know, the more that you use these gifts

to the spirit, the more easy it becomes

and the more natural it becomes.

Just like healing, it's so natural.

The same thing with the word of knowledge.

How does it come?

It just comes to your mindand your inner spirit.

It's part of the Holy Spirit

that does it, OK?

- Amen.

Lillian says, "If Ican't pay the full tithe

"because of my bills, isthat offensive to God?

"I feel guilty when I can'ttithe as much as I want to,

"but I also feel like I'm stealing from

"medical bill collectorswhen I can't pay them because

"I gave it to God.

"I'm a little older and don'thave as much as I used to."

- I don't know what to do except you need

some kind of a financial thing.

Make a budget, set upa budget for yourself

and work in there and putat the top of that budget,

10% to the Lord's service.

If you do that, he will makethe rest of it work better.

But what you're doing is you're saying,

well I've gotta pay these other bills

and at the end, maybe I'll take a tithe.

So, you haven't got your financials right.

But make a budget and with a budget,

put at the top of thelist what you're gonna

give to the Lord andthen watch what happens

from there on out.

You'll be amazed how Godwill cause the rest of it

to prosper and you'll haveenough to stretch over

what your needs are.

Then of course, with the budget,you also don't overspend.

If you have control ofwhat you're spending,

then keep that within, I mean,

your expenditures shouldbe less than your income.

If it's the other way around,if your income is less

than your expenditures,you're in trouble all the time

and that has nothing to do with tithing.

- I tell that to everybody.

That 10% makes that 90% go twice as far.

- Amen.

- I mean, sometimes yourmilk won't even go sour, Pat.

I'm telling you.

- I can't promise that.- I've seen that happen.

- I've seen it happen!

- That's a benefit I'm notaware of but I'm all for it.

- Alright well, Mary says,

"My husband and I watch a YouTube channel

"with videos of TV trips andparks that are interesting,

"but they are postedby a man that has said

"he is an atheist.

"Is it a sin for us to watch his videos?"

- Of course not.

Ya know, apostle Paul saidif you don't deal with

people who are kidnappersand robbers and so forth,

ya need go outta the world.

He said if somebodyclaims to be a Christian

and they're doing these terrible things,

then don't even eat withem but at the same time,

we have to deal with people in this world

that are atheist, who are homosexual,

who are doing all these other things.

So, otherwise, you haveto leave the world,

that's what Jesus said.

So there's no sin in watchinga thing that you enjoy.

It's a travel log produced by an atheist.

There's nothing wrong with that.

I mean, you hope he'll find the Lord

but that's something else.

- Here's one from just says a viewer.

What is the glory of the Lord?

Substance, experience, or weight?

- Well, the Chakana isthe aura that surrounds

the holiness of God andI don't know what to say.

I mean, part of it, the whole concept

is a weight coming down,that whole thing is a glory

but I haven't got timeto go in more detail.

But that, it was the glory of the Lord

that entered into the temple, for example,

when the priest went in.

The glory of the Lord wassuch, they could hardly

stand the ministry.

Well, today's PowerMinute is from the Psalms.

"So teach us to number our days,

"that we may gain a heart of wisdom."

Tomorrow, three simple stepsto building a better bio--

- [Wendy] Gut.

- Gut (laughs).

Well, for all of us,this is Pat Robertson.

I'll see ya tomorrow, bye bye.
