I JUST WANT TO GO OUT

THERE AND HONOR HIS NAME

THROUGH THE TALENT HE GAVE

ME.

WE SQUARE OFF WITH

REDSKINS' LINEBACKER

LORENZO.

PLUS, FALL IS IN THE AIR, SO

GIVE YOURSELF AN AUTUMN

TREAT.

PAT SERVES UP A DISH OF HIS

MINESTRONE SOUP, ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

TERRY, THEY SAY FALL IS IN

THE AIR.

ARE YOU READY FOR A TASTE

SENSATION?

Terry: I AM READY FOR A

TASTE SENSATION.

BOY, HAVE WE GOT THE DAY FOR

IT HERE.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT IS

LIKE WHERE YOU ARE, BUT IT

IS A MINESTRONE DAY HERE.

Pat: I LIKE MINESTRONE,

AND IT IS HARD TO GET, SO I

DECIDED I WAS GOING TO MAKE

SOME.

IT IS NOT A FAMILY RECIPE.

I JUST STARTED THROWING SOME

STUFF IN A POT, AND SOMEBODY

SAID IT IS SO GOOD WE OUGHT

TO DO IT ON "THE 700 CLUB."

Terry: THERE YOU GO.

Pat: IT IS LIKE THE

PAINTERS WHO THROW THINGS,

AND THE NEXT THING WE KNOW

THE PAINTINGS ARE WORTH

$5 MILLION.

Terry: YOU'LL SIGN YOUR

SOUP BOWEL.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE SOME SPECIAL FALL

MINESTRONE.

FOUR YEARS AGO, YOUNG

AMERICANS WERE EXCITED ABOUT

THE AGENT OF CHANGE ON A

YOUNG MAN FROM ILLINOIS

NAMED BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.

WHAT ABOUT THIS TIME

AROUND?

WELL, THEY TURN OUT AGAIN TO

SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT --

WILL THEY OR WILL THEY NOT?

Terry: YOUNG VOTERS ARE

OFTEN CALL MILLENNIUMIALS,

AND THE TOUGH ECONOMY COULD

AFFECT THEIR CHOICE THIS

ELECTION YEAR.

Reporter: THEY'RE

DISILLUSIONED WITH

GOVERNMENT, DIVERSE YET

DIVIDED OFTEN ALONG RACIAL

LINES.

IT IS THE MILLENNIUM

GENERATION THAT CAME OUT IN

GREAT NUMBERS IN '08 0.

Reporter: A NEW SURVEY

FINDS AMERICA'S YOUNG VOTERS

APPATHIC, PROBABLY BECAUSE

THEY'RE HAVING A HARD TIME

FINANCIALLY.

MORE THAN '01MORE THAN 50%

OF RECENT COLLEGE GRADUATES

ARE UNEMPLOYED OR

UNDERPLOYMENT AND LIVING

WITH THEIR PARENTS.

Reporter: AND WHILE

PRESIDENT OBAMA ENJOYS A

COMFORTABLE 16-POINT LEAD

OVER GOVERNOR ROMNEY AMONG

MILLENNIUMIALS, HE HAS LOST

HIS LUSTER.

IN 2008, THE NUMBER WAS

ABOUT TWO-THIRDS.

Reporter: ON CHARACTER

AND LEADERSHIP TRAITS, THE

PRESIDENT HELD AN ADVANTAGE

IN EVERY CATEGORY BUT ONE.

54% ROMNEY HAS STRONG

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

BUT JUST 44% SAY THEY WOULD

BE COMFORTABLE WITH A MORMON

PRESIDENT.

MORE THAN 60% SAID THEY

WOULD BE COMFORTABLE WITH AN

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN IN THE

WHITE HOUSE.

AND THE SURVEY FINDS

MILLENNIUMIALS ARE GREATLY

INFLUENCED BY THEIR MOMS AND

DADS.

AND THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO

BE REGISTERED TO VOTE.

AND MILLENIALS WITH BOTH

PARENTS VOTING ARE MORE

LIKELY TO VOTE.

THE SURVEY SHOWS A MAJORITY

OF YOUNG VOTERS DISCOURAGED

WITH GOVERNMENT AND

POLITICS.

POLITICS.

STILL, BOTH CANDIDATES ARE

FIGHTING FOR THEIR VOTES.

CHILDREN IN THEIR 20s

SHOULD NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN

THEIR BEDROOMS, STARING AT

THE OBAMA POSTERS AND

WONDERING WHEN THEY CAN GET

GOING AND MOVE OUT.

Reporter: COX SAYS

SOCIAL MEDIA.

86% HAVE Facebook PAGES,

AND BOTH COMPAIGNS KNOW THAT

THIS YEAR EVERY VOTE

COUNTS.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: THERE IS A JOKE

ABOUT THE MILLENIALS, AND

SOMEBODY SAID ABOUT THEM,

WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD YOU

ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEIR

ILL-INFORMED AND APATHETIC,

AND THE ANSWER WAS: I DON'T

KNOW AND I DON'T CARE.

WE'LL SEE.

BUT THIS WHOLE IDEA OF THE

AGENT OF CHANGE, I'VE GOT TO

A NEW DEAL COMING TO

WASHINGTON THAT IS GOING TO

BE A DEAL OF HAPPINESS AND

PROSPERITY, BUT WHEN YOU'RE

LIVING IN YOUR FOLK'S HOME

OR IN THEIR BASEMENT STARING

AT OBAMA POSTERS, YOU'RE NOT

AS ENTHUSIASTIC.

THE ENTHUSIASM GAUGE SEEMS

TO BE REGISTERING FOR MITT

ROMNEY.

THAT ONE DEBATE DID

SOMETHING THAT DEBATES JUST

NEVER DO.

IT THREW THE NEEDLE ON THE

OTHER SIDE.

Terry: IT REALLY DOES

SEEM THAT WAY.

IT HAS BEEN CONSTANTLY ON

THE MEDIA FROM THE TIME IT

OCCURRED BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH

A DRASTIC DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

THE TWO.

Pat: UNBELIEVABLE.

ROMNEY MADE A SPEECH -- I'M

FROM LEXINGTON, VIRGINIA,

THAT'S MY HOME TOWN AND THE

PLACE I WAS BORN.

AND THE VIRGINIA MILITARY

INSTITUTE IS VERY DEAR TO MY

HEART.

MY FATHER WAS ON THE BOARD

OF VISITORS TO THAT

INSTITUTION FOR SOME TIME.

AND MR. ROMNEY MADE A SPEECH

AT VMI, WHERE HE PRAISED

GEORGE MARSHAL, WHERE HARRY

S. TRUMAN WAS THE GREAT ONE

IN WORLD WAR II, AND SO

WE'LL SEE HOW THAT PLAYS

OUT.

THE NEXT DEBATE IS ON

FOREIGN POLICY, AND THE

PRESIDENT IS VERY

VULNERABLE.

FOLKS, I WANT YOU TO KNOW

THAT EVERY VOTE COUNTS, AND

YOU NEED TO REGISTER.

IF YOU HAVEN'T REGISTERED TO

VOTE YET, YOU CAN FIND OUT

HOW YOU CAN DO SO IN YOUR

STATE BY GOING TO OUR

SPECIAL VOTER REGISTRATION

PAGE ON CBN.COM.

THE UNITED STATES IS THE

ONLY COUNTRY FACING

FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES, AND

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWSROOM.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, THE

INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND

WARNS THAT THE WORLD ECONOMY

WILL BE WEAKER THAN EXPECTED

NEXT YEAR.

IT COULD EVEN FALL INTO A

SERIOUS SLUMP.

THE I.M.F. SAYS

POLICY-MAKERS IN THE U.S.

AND EUROPE HAVE TO MAKE THE

RIGHT DECISIONS ON THE

ECONOMIC PROBLEMS FACING

THEIR COUNTRIES.

EUROPE ALREADY IN A

RECESSION, AND ITS LEADERS

ARE STILL TRYING TO GET ITS

INTERNATIONAL DEBT CRISIS

UNDER CONTROL.

POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON

WILL HAVE TO REACH AN

AGREEMENT ON THE BUDGET CUTS

AND TAX HIKES BY THE END OF

THE YEAR.

IF THEY DON'T, ECONOMISTS

WARN THAT THE U.S. COULD

FALL BACK INTO A RECESSION

AS WELL.

MITT ROMNEY IS ATTACKING

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S LEADERSHIP

ON FOREIGN POLICY.

ROMNEY, AS PAT MENTIONED,

SPOKE AT V.M.I. IN

LEXINGTON.

HIS FOCUS WAS THE MIDDLE

EAST.

HE WENT THROUGH THE

CONFLICTS IN SYRIA, LIBYA,

AND AFGHANISTAN, SAYING THAT

THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR THE

U.S. TO LEAD.

IT IS CLEAR THAT THE RISK

IN THE REGION IS HIGHER NOW

THAN WHEN THE PRESIDENT TOOK

OFFICE.

I KNOW THE PRESIDENT HOPES

FOR A SAFER, FREER, AND MORE

PROSPEROUS MIDDLE EAST,

ALIGNED WITH US, AND I SHARE

THIS HOPE.

BUT HOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY.

Lee: MR. ROMNEY ALSO

LAID OUT FULL SUPPORT FOR

THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL,

AND HE SAID HE WOULD NOT

HESITATE TO IMPOSE NEW

SANCTIONS ON IRAN TO STOP

ITS DEVELOPMENT OF NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

THE NOBLE PRIZE FOR MEDICINE

HAS GONE TO TWO SCIENTISTS

WHO BRING HOPE TO PEOPLE

WITH ALZHEIMER'S,

PARKINSON'S, AND SPINAL CORD

INJURIES, JUST TO NAME A

FEW.

THEY'RE ALSO HEROS TO THE

PRO LIFE COMMUNITY.

LAURIE JOHNSON HAS THAT

STORY.

SCIENTISTS JOHN GURDON AND

SHINYA YAMANAKA FROM JAPAN

DISCOVERED IT IS POSSIBLE TO

TAKE A CELL OUT OF AN ADULT

PATIENT, STRIP DOWN THE CELL

TO WHAT IT WAS LIKE WHEN IT

WAS A BRAND NEW, HEALTHY

CELL, AND PUT THAT HEALTHY

CELL INTO THE PATIENT IN THE

PART OF THE BODY THAT IS

SICK, SUCH AS THE BRAIN, THE

SPINE OR THE HEART.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IS THAT

HEALTHY CELL REGENERATES AND

TAKES OVER THE SICK AREA,

MAKING THE PATIENT WELL

AGAIN.

THE TECHNIQUE HAS PROVED

SUCCESSFUL WITH HEART

PATIENTS IN A STUDY AT THE

UNIVERSITY AT LOUISVILLE.

DR. ROBERTO BOLI TOOK CELLS

FROM A HEALTHY PART OF THE

PATIENT AND IN FUSED THEM

INTO THE PATIENT'S HEART,

CAUSING THE REGENERATION OF

PREVIOUSLY DEAD HEART

TISSUE.

IT MEANS FRESH HOPE FOR

PEOPLE WITH HEART FAILURE.

IT IS NOT HYPE.

IT IS REALLY HOPE.

I THINK THAT STEM CELLS WILL

LIKELY BECOME A ROUTINE PART

OF OUR TREATMENT OR

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN

THE NEXT FEW YEARS.

Reporter: THIS

DISCOVERY IS ESPECIALLY GOOD

NEWS FOR CHRISTIANS AND

OTHERS WHO BELIEVE IN THE

SANCTITY OF LIFE.

BECAUSE UNTIL NOW, MUCH OF

THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY

BELIEVED THIS TYPE OF CELL

REGENERATION NEEDS TO START

WITH LIVING, HUMAN EMBRYOS,

A PROCESS THAT DESTROYS THE

EMBRYO.

THIS AWARD WILL LIKELY

RAISE AWARENESS THAT THE

PUBLIC CAN MOVE ON AND NOW

THINK ABOUT HOW WE CAN

ACTUALLY USE THIS TO TREAT

PEOPLE AND MOVE PAST THE

ETHICAL DEBATE THAT HAS

CONSUMED THIS COUNTRY OVER

THE PAST FEW MONTHS.

Reporter: LAURIE

JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Lee: A PROTESTANT

MAJORITY FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN ITS HISTORY.

THAT IS THE FINDING BY THE

FORUM FOR RELIGION AND

PUBLIC LIFE.

THE NUMBER OF PROTESTANT

ADULTS AS FALLEN TO 48%, AND

THE NUMBER OF AMERICANS WITH

NO RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION IS

UP FROM 15% TO 20% IN THE

LAST FIVE YEARS.

THE TREND COULD HAVE

POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS.

PEOPLE WHO DESCRIBE

THEMSELVES AS HAVING NO

RELIGION VOTE OVERWHELMING

FOR DEMOCRATS, AND THEY

SUPPORT ABORTION RIGHTS AND

GAY MARRIAGE AT A MUCH

HIGHER RATE THAN THE PUBLIC

AT LARGE.

CHRISTIAN LEADERS FROM A

VARIETY OF BACKGROUNDS ARE

CALLING FOR PRAYER FOR

AMERICA IN THE DAYS LEADING

UP TO THE ELECTION.

THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST

CONVENTION IS ASKING PEOPLE

TO PRAY EVERY DAY FOR THE

COUNTRY BEFORE VOTERS GO TO

THE POLLS.

VARIOUS PRAYER ORGANIZATIONS

AND WEBSITES HAVE CALLED FOR

INTERCENSURE.

BELIEF NET ARE ASKING FOR

PEOPLE TO ASK FOR GOD'S

HELP.

AND AMERICANS CAME TOGETHER

FROM ACROSS THE NATION IN

PHILADELPHIA FOR "AMERICA

FOR JESUS."

AND THEY PRAYED FOR A

SPIRITUAL RENEWAL FOR OUR

COUNTRY AND THAT AMERICANS

WOULD COME TOGETHER AS ONE

NATION UNDER GOD.

PAT?

Pat: WE'RE HERE IN

FRONT OF THIS REPLICA OF THE

AMERICAN FLAG.

WE HAVE SOMETHING IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD OF 170,000

PEOPLE WHO SAID WE'RE GOING

TO BE PRAYING WITH YOU.

WE'RE PRAYING EVERY DAY UP

TO THE ELECTION, AND WE HAVE

, TERRY, MORE REQUESTS.

RESTORATION OF THE FARMERS

AND VICTIMS OF THE DROUGHT.

THAT OUR COUNTRY WOULD

DEVELOPMENT A SPIRITUAL

HUNGER.

Terry: HERE IS SOMEONE

SAYING I'M PRAYING THAT WE

HAVE FAITHFUL AND MOTIVATED

LEADERS TO HELP THE

COUNTRY.

AND SOMEONE PRAYING WE HAVE

MORE JOBS.

Pat: YOU HAVE MORE JOBS

WHEN YOU HAVE PROSPERITY,

AND 

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER.

AND WHEREVER YOU ARE, PLEASE

PRAY WITH US.

WE BELIEVE GOD, BUT, YOU

KNOW, YOU READ IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT AND THE NEW

TESTAMENT, THOSE WHO WERE

CRYING OUT FOR THEIR NATIONS

WERE REPENTING.

THEY WERE SAYING, GOD, WE

SINNED, FORGIVE US, AND HEAL

OUR LAND.

NOT JUST DO GOOD FOR US.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN HANDS,

AND PLEASE JOIN HANDS

WHEREVER YOU HAPPEN TO BE,

AND WE'LL PRAY FOR THIS

NATION AT THIS CRUCIAL TIME

IN ITS HISTORY.

LORD, WE COME BEFORE YOU

NOW, AND WE CONFESS THAT AS

A PEOPLE, WE SINNED AGAINST

YOU.

WE CONFESS WE HAVE BROKEN

THE COVENANT, THE SOLEMN

COVENANT MADE WHY GOD

ALMIGHTY MORE THAN 400 YEARS

AGO.

LORD, WE HAVE VIOLATED YOUR

COMMANDMENTS, AND WE PRAY,

LORD, THAT YOU WILL CLEANSE

US, BRING US TO THE PLACE

WHERE WE CAN BE BLESSED BY

GOD.

AND WE ASK FOR SPIRITUAL

REVIVAL AND RENEWAL OF OUR

LAND.

AND IN THIS CRUCIAL

ELECTION, GIVE US GODLY

LEADERS WHO WILL HAVE WISDOM

IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE

PUBLIC AFFAIRS OF THIS GREAT

NATION.

IN JESUS' NAME WE ASK IT,

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

Terry: YOU PRAYED FOR

REVIVAL, AND WE'VE BEEN

SAYING FOR A LONG TIME ON

THIS PROGRAM, THAT REALLY IS

THE ANSWER TO THE ILLS THAT

OUR COUNTRY IS FACING.

YOU PUT TOGETHER A GREAT

BOOK CALLED "STEPS TO

REVIVAL IN AMERICA."

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU'VE SEEN THIS

BOOK AND YOU'VE PROBABLY

RECEIVED THIS BOOK.

ANYONE CAN RECEIVE IT.

IT IS FREE FOR THE ASKING.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS CALL

THAT TOLL-FREE NUMBER ON

YOUR SCREEN.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT THAT

REVIVAL BOOK.

WE ALL NEED TO BE PRAYING

TOGETHER AND LONGING FOR

THIS KIND OF REVIVAL TO TAKE

PLACE IN OUR COUNTRY.

AND SCHOOLS ARE -- GET

THIS -- TRACKING YOU'RE

CHILDREN.

SOME SAY IT IS A WAY TO KEEP

YOUR CHILDREN SAFE AND

OTHERS SAY IT IS AN INVASION

OF PRIVACY.

I WANT TO KNOW WHERE MY

SON IS.

I'M HOLDING THEM RESPONSIBLE

FOR HIS WELL-BEING.

I DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF

THEM TRACKING THE Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

HEAR FROM BOTH SIDES OF THIS

DEBATE, AND THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: YOU'VE PROBABLY

HEARD THE TERM "R.F.I.

CHIPS."

RADIO FREQUENCY I.D.

THEY PUT THEM IN CLOTHES TO

KEEP YOU FROM STEALING

THEM.

THEY CAN ALSO BE PUT ALONG

PEOPLE SO THAT THE PEOPLE --

SO OTHERS WILL KNOW WHERE

THEY ARE.

NOW ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S

LARGEST SCHOOL DISTRICTS

HAVE STARTED TO USE THIS

TECHNOLOGY WITH ITS

STUDENTS.

BUT SOME PARENTS SAY PUTTING

AN R.F.I.D. CHIP IN THEIR

CHILD IS A AN INVASION OF

THE CHILDREN'S PRIVACY.

IT VIOLATES, IN ADDITION,

THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THAT STORY

FROM SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS.

Reporter: ANDREA'S DAY

STARTS WITH HER BACKPACK,

SWEATSHIRT, AND STUDENT

I.D.

BUT DON'T BE FOOLED, THIS

SOPHOMORE ISN'T YOU'RE HER

NEW BADGE.

SHE IS USING LAST YEAR'S

CARD.

SHE SAYS THE NEW I.D.

VIOLATES HER RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS.

SHE BELIEVES IT CONDITIONSED

STUDENTS TO SEPTEMBER 11TH

WHA ACCEPT WHAT THE BIBLE

CALLS "THE MARK OF THE

BEAST."

THIS IS NOT THE GREAT

ECONOMY, THE UNITED STATES

OF ECONOMY, BUT YOU'RE STILL

NOT ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE

IN IT UNLESS YOU HAVE THIS

THING.

Reporter: BUT NORTHSIDE

SAYS THE BADGE HAS HELPED TO

KEEP KIDS SAFE.

AND WITH 100,000 STUDENTS IN

MEGA SCHOOLS AROUND THE

CITY, THAT'S A TALL ORDER.

THIS FALL NORTHSIDE JOINED A

HANDFUL OF DISTRICTS THAT

USED WHAT IS CALLS RADIO

FREQUENCY IDENTIFICATION

TECHNOLOGY, OR R.F.I.D., FOR

SHORT.

IT IS PILOTING THE PROGRAM

AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AND

JOHN J.HIGH SCHOOL.

STUDENTS MUCH WEAR BADGES

AROUND THEIR NECKS.

THE TAGS HAVE TINY BATTERIES

HAVE EMIT RADIOWAVES.

THERE ARE MACHINES IN THE

CEILINGS THAT READ THE

BADGES AND IDENTIFY THEM.

THIS SCHOOL HAS SURVEILLANCE

CAMERAS MOUNTED ON THE

CEILING IN ALMOST EVERY

HALLWAY.

WHAT YOU WON'T SEE ARE THE

R.F.I.D. SCANNERS THAT BE

SCANNING THE CHILDREN'S

BADGES.

IT ACTUALLY KNOWS

PHYSICALLY WHERE THAT CHILD

IS.

Reporter: ATTENDANCE

CLERKS CAN IDENTIFY A

STUDENT'S LOCATION IN A

MOMENT, OR EARLIER IN A

DAY.

IT COMES DOWN TO THESE PINK

CIRCLES, WHICH TRACK A

STUDENT'S MOVEMENT.

MANY PARENTS SUPPORT IT,

SAYING IT GIVES THEM PEACE

OF MIND.

AS A PARENT, I WANT TO

KNOW WHERE MY SON IS BECAUSE

I'M HOLDING THE SCHOOL

ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS

WELL-BEING.

Reporter: BUT ANOTHER

PARENTS DISAGREE.

I DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF

THEM CHIPPING THE KIDS.

I BELIEVE IT DOES INVADE

OUR CHILDREN'S PRIVACY AND

CIVIL LIBERTIES, AND THE

FACT THERE IS NO PROVISION

TO OPT OUT.

Reporter: PRIVACY

ORGANIZATIONS AROUND THE

COUNTRY ARE BACKING THESE

PARENTS.

THE ULTIMATE CONCERN IS

HERE WE DON'T WANT TO TURN

INTO A SURVEILLANCE

SOCIETY.

IN OUR CULTURE, IN OUR LEGAL

TRADITIONS, THE GOVERNMENT

DOESN'T WATCH YOU UNLESS IT

HAD PARTICULAR REASON TO

SUSPECT YOU ARE INVOLVED IN

WRONG-DOING.

THIS TYPE OF TECHNOLOGY

IMPLICATES THE FREEDOM OF

SPEECH, THE RIGHT TO FREELY

ASSOCIATE, TO RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

IMAGINE, FOR EXAMPLE, A

STUDENT BEING DISSUADED FROM

ATTENDING A POLITICAL

INTEREST GROUP BECAUSE SHE

FEARS THAT THE TRACKING

TECHNOLOGY WILL ALERT THE

PRINCIPAL OR OTHER MEMBERS

OF THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION

WHERE HER POLITICAL

AFFILIATIONS ALIGN.

Reporter: BUT THE

SCHOOL DISTRICT SAYS THERE

IS NO INVASION OF PRIVACY,

AND THAT CIVIL LIBERTY

ORGANIZATIONS DON'T GET IT.

WE REJECT THEIR

ARGUMENT.

THEY DON'T WALK IN OUR

SHOES.

THEY ARE NOT THE PRINCIPAL

OR THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL

OR THE TEACHER IN ONE OF

THESE MEGA SCHOOLS CHARGED

WITH THE SAFETY OF THESE

CHILDREN.

WE'RE NOT SITTING HERE

TRACKING KIDS ALL DAY LONG.

WE DON'T HAVE TIME TO DO

THAT.

Reporter: THE DISTRICT

HAD NO OPT-OUT POLICY, WHICH

MAY DISCOURAGE DESCENDERS

FROM SPEAKING OUT.

HE SAYS WHEN THE PROGRAM IS

FULLY OPERATIONAL NEXT

MONTH, THE BADGES WILL BE

MANDATORY.

IT WILL BE A REQUIREMENT

OF THAT SCHOOL FOR THOSE

STUDENTS TO WHERE THEIR

LANDER AND I.D. CARD.

IF THEY REFUSE, PERHAPS THAT

IS NOT THE SCHOOL FOR THEM.

Reporter: THE DISTRICT

BELIEVES THE SYSTEM WILL

HELP THE SCHOOLS

FINANCIALLY.

THAT'S BECAUSE TEXAS, LIKE

MANY OTHER STATES, TIE

ATTENDANCE TO FUNDING.

SO THE MORE KIDS THE SCHOOL

CAN COUNTER, THE MORE

REVENUE IT RECEIVES.

IT CAN HELP INCREASE

ATTENDANCE RATE BY FINDING

STUDENTS WHO ARE IN THE

BUILDING BUT NOT IN CLASS.

IT IS REALLY THE KIDS ON

CAMPUS DOING SOMETHING

LEGITIMATELY WITH ANOTHER

TEACHER, BUT THEY ARE MARKED

ABSENT.

Reporter: MICHAEL WADE

SUPPLIES NORTHSIDE AND TWO

OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS WITH

THE R.F.I.D. BADGES, AND HIS

BRS I BUSINESS IS GROWING.

BY YEAR'S END, SH, HE

EXPECTS TO SUPPLY AT LEAST

10 SCHOOLS.

THERE IS THE

MISPERCEPTION WE'RE TRACKING

PEOPLE.

AND WE'RE NOT.

NO ONE IS SITTING AT THE

COMPUTER TRACKING ANYONE.

Reporter: BUT ANDREA IS

NOT CONVINCED, AND SHE SAYS

SHE IS IN THIS FIGHT FOR THE

LONG HAUL.

THEY CAN TRACT ME

WHENEVER THEY WANTED ME, BUT

IN THE END, IT DOESN'T

REALLY MATTER BECAUSE LIFE

IS JUST BIGGER THAN

NORTHSIDE OR THE JOHN J.

HIGH SCHOOL.

THIS PROGRAM IS BIGGER THAN

WHAT NORTHSIDE IS MAKING IT

OUT TO BE.

Reporter: REPORTING IN

SAN ANTONIO, HEATHER CELLS,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE TIME

WILL COME THERE THERE IS A

WORLDWIDE DICTATORSHIP.

WELL, WE HAVE TECHNOLOGY NOW

WHERE THERE CAN BE A TATTOO

ON A HAND OR ON A FOREHEAD

OR ON ANY OTHER PART OF THE

BODY, AND WITH COMPUTER

POWER, WE CAN TRACK ALMOST

THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE

WORLD.

WE CAN'T, BUT THE GOVERNMENT

CAN.

IT IS A FRIGHTENING THING TO

SEE BIG BROTHER -- IF YOU

EVER READ THAT FICTIONAL

BOOK -- THAT PEOPLE CAN'T

MOVE OR TRAVEL OR DO

ANYTHING WITHOUT BIG BROTHER

WATCHING.

IT SEEMS LIKE THIS R.F.I.D.

CONCEPT IS LIKE THE NOSE OF

THE CAMEL UNDER THE TENT.

IT IS COMING A LITTLE BIT AT

A TIME, AND IT SEEMS SO

BENIGN, BUT THE TIME WILL

COME WHERE WE WILL BE

CONDITIONED TO THIS SORT OF

THING.

FAR BE IT FROM ME TO BE AN

ADVOCATE AND BOOSTER OF THE

ACLU, BUT ON THIS ONE THEY

ARE RIGHT.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, YOU KNOW

ABOUT PUMPKIN SPICED LATTES

AND HOT APPLE CIDER.

NOW IT IS TIME TO ADD

ANOTHER FALL RECIPE.

PAT IS GOING TO SHARE THE

RECIPE TO HIS MINESTRONE

SOUP.

YOU WANT TO STAY TUNED.

Pat: I FEEL LIKE DAVE

THOMAS DOING A WENDY'S

COMMERCIAL.

HERE WE ARE!

WE'RE IN THE KITCHEN.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: I'M GOING TO SHOW

PEOPLE -- YOU KNOW, THE

OTHER DAY I JUST DECIDED I

WANT SOME MINESTRONE, AND SO

I DECIDED TO JUST THROW

STUFF IN THE POT.

Terry: IT IS HEARTY.

Pat: VERY HEARTY.

LET ME SHOW YOU WHERE WE

START.

WHERE IS IT?

THIS IS WHERE WE START.

THIS IS -- YES.

THIS IS OWNED BY A CAMPBELL

SOUP COMPANY, AND THIS IS

CALLED KITCHEN BROTH.

Terry: YOU'RE JUST

GOING TO PUT A CAN OF THAT

IN?

Pat: JUST PUT A CAN OF

IT IN.

THEIR MINESTRONE IS

IMITATION, SO DON'T BUY IT.

Terry: THEIR BROTH, YOU

MEAN?

Pat: THEIR BROTH.

NOW, THIS IS A DOUBLE CAN

OF --

Terry: STEWED

TOMATOES.

Pat: NO.

JUST SLICED TOMATOES.

JUST DUMP IT IN THERE.

Terry: DO YOU WANT ME

TO TAKE THESE?

Pat: I DON'T CARE WHAT

YOU DO WITH THEM.

DOES IT MAKE YOU HAPPY.

Terry: I DON'T WANT TO

MESS YOU UP.

Pat: NOW WE HAVE --

Terry: YOU SAY

POTATOES.

Pat: YOU SAY POTATOES.

I'VE GOT A BIG CHOPPING

KNIFE AND WE WANT TO CUT

THAT SUCKER.

TRY NOT TO CUT THE FINGERS

BECAUSE THAT WILL RUIN THE

SOUP.

Terry: YEAH, I DON'T

LIKE BLOOD IN MY

MINESTRONE.

Pat: THIS IS A NICE

CUTTING KNIFE.

THEY GOT ME A NEW ONE HERE.

AND YOU CHOP THESE THINGS UP

AND DICE THEM.

Terry: UH-HUH.

Pat: AND SO THEY'RE ALL

DICED, SO NICE AND PRETTY.

AND NOW, I LEFT THE SKIN

ON.

Terry: THE SKIN IS

GOOD.

Pat: WHO NEEDS THE

HASSLE OF PEELING POTATOES.

Terry: I LIKE THAT.

Pat: AND IT ALSO TASTES

BETTER.

YOU DUMP THAT IN.

A COUPLE OF THOSE.

NOW, THE NEXT THING, THIS

LOOKS LIKE TOO MUCH -- I

JUST WANTED ONE ONION.

Terry: THAT'S ABOUT ONE

ONION.

Pat: ARE YOU SURE IT

IS?

Terry: YEAH.

UH-HUH.

Pat: ONE VERY BIG

UNION.

DICED.

WHERE IS MY CELERY.

I TAKE ABOUT THREE STALKS OF

CELERY AND DICE THAT UP.

I'M NOT DOING THE DICING,

FOLKS.

I'M SORRY.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

NOW, I WANT -- THIS IS A

HALF A PACKET OF GREEN

PEAS.

Terry: I LOVE GREEN

PEAS.

Pat: ISN'T THIS FUN.

Terry: CAN I SORT OF

STIR THIS?

Pat: YOU DON'T HAVE

TO.

I'VE GOT SOME CORN.

A CAN.

THIS IS GREEN GIANT, WHOLE

KERNEL, SWEET CORN.

Terry: LOOK HOW

BEAUTIFUL THAT IS.

Pat: IT'S GORGEOUS,

DARLING.

THESE ARE SINTO CHICKPEAS.

IN THEY GO.

ISN'T THIS EASY.

NOW, THIS IS KALE.

SEE THIS STUFF HERE.

Terry: YES.

IT IS GOOD FOR YOU.

Pat: THIS IS GOOD OLD

LEAF KALE, AND YOU HAVE TO

CHOP THAT UP.

A COUPLE OF CUPS OF THAT.

HERE IT IS, KALE, GOOD-OLD,

FRESH OUT OF THE GARDEN

KALE.

Terry: I KNOW THAT IS

GOOD FOR YOU.

Pat: I'M LOOKING FOR

SPINACH.

THIS IS FROZEN, GREEN GIANT

CHOPPED SPINACH.

Terry: THE SPINACH AND

THE KALE --

Pat: EVERYTHING.

IT IS HEALTHY.

Terry: YOU WANT TO THAW

THAT BEFORE YOU PUT YOURS IN

YOUR SOUP.

Pat: NO, YOU DON'T THAW

IT.

IT WILL THAW ITSELF.

Terry: IS THAT ZUCCHINI

IN THE BOWL?

Pat: YEAH.

WE HAVE TO CHOP UP ONE

ZUCCHINI.

UNO ZUCCHINI.

Terry: AND IS THAT

CABBAGE IN THE OTHER BOWEL?

Pat: IT IS SUPPOSED TO

BE.

WHERE IS IT?

THAT'S CABBAGE?

Terry: YES.

Pat: I LIKE THE BIG,

GREEN LEAVES IN THE

CABBAGE.

NOT THE WHITE STUFF IN THE

MIDDLE YOU MAKE COLESLAW OUT

OF.

THIS HAS GOT ALL OF THAT

FLAVOR TO IT.

TERY

Terry: A COUPLE OF CUPS

OF THAT STUFF.

WOW, LOOK HOW THAT FILLS

UP.

Pat: THIS IS SEA SALT.

THIS IS LOW IN SODIUM BUT

HIGH IN FLAVOR.

HOW DO YOU MAKE IT WORK.

Terry: OH, I THINK --

LIKE THIS.

OKAY, GO FOR IT.

Pat: GO FOR IT.

THE RECIPE SAYS SEASON TO

TASTE.

THAT'S PROBABLY NOT ENOUGH,

BUT THAT'S ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS WORCESTERSHIRE

SAUCE.

GOT TO PUT A LITTLE OF THAT

IN.

Terry: I LIKE, TOO.

HAVE YOU ALWAYS COOKED -- I

KNOW YOU DO YOUR POWER

DRINK, BUT THIS IS A LITTLE

DIFFERENT.

Pat: YEAH.

Terry: THIS IS GETTING

INTO THE KITCHEN.

Pat: AND I ALSO PUT A

LITTLE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE

OIL IN.

I NEEDED A TABLESPOON.

Terry: OWE

Terry: OH, GO AHEAD.

Pat: TWO TABLESPOONS.

I'M VERY INPRECISE.

IF YOU WANT IT SPICY, THIS

IS ROTELLE WITH CHILI PER

PERS IN IT.

I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT,

BUT IF YOU WANT IT SPICY,

YOU ADD THAT TO IT.

WHAT AM I MISSING?

PEPPER.

Terry: YOU ONLY PUT ONE

CAN OF STOCK IN HERE?

Pat: THAT'S ALL YOU

NEED.

DON'T PUT WATER IN HERE.

DON'T MESS IT UP.

IT WILL BOIL.

YOU PUT IT ON FIRE FOR ABOUT

FIVE HOURS.

ON A LOW FLAME AND JUST LET

IT COOK.

Terry: STIR IT EVERY

ONCE IN A WHILE?

Pat: EVERY ONCE IN A

WHILE.

AND IF IT RUNS OUT OF WATER,

PUT IT LITTLE IN, BUT NOT A

LOT OF WATER BECAUSE IT IS

THE JUICE OF THESE DELICIOUS

VEGETABLES THAT MAKE THE

DIFFERENCE.

Terry: CAN WE SHOW THE

DIFFERENCE?

Pat: FIRST WE PUT THE

TOP ON.

Terry: I'M SMELLING THE

REAL DEAL.

Pat: SERVE SOME INTO

THOSE DELICIOUS BOWELS.

Terry: OH, MY

GOODNESS.

Pat: DOESN'T THAT LOOK

DELICIOUS.

IF IT IS A LITTLE LOW ON

WATER, YOU CAN ALWAYS PUT A

LITTLE WATER IN IT.

Terry: AREN'T YOU GOING

TO EAT?

BECAUSE I'M EATING MINE.

Pat: PETE, YOU CAN TRY

SOME OF MINE.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, YOU'VE

HAD IT.

Terry: WHERE YOU

WORKING TOMORROW, PETE.

Pat: TASTE THAT AND

TELL ME IF THAT ISN'T THE

MOST DELICIOUS STUFF HERE.

GOOD?

Terry: ISN'T THAT

GOOD.

YOU FINISH THE SHOW.

WE'RE HAVING BREAKFAST

HERE.

Pat: NOW, THERE IS

SOMETHING ELSE YOU DO.

THIS IS GOOD-OLD, WARM,

WHOLE-GRAIN BREAD.

AND YOU GET A FEW PIECES OF

THAT.

ISN'T THAT GOOD?

Terry: THIS IS

FABULOUS.

AND YOU CAN MAKE A LOT OF

THIS.

YOU CAN PROBABLY FREEZE

THAT, TOO, AND KEEP IT.

Pat: YOU CAN FREEZE IT

IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT.

Terry: YOU SAID IT IS

GOOD FOR TWO OR THREE DAYS

IN THE REFRIG?

SOUP.

Pat: AND THE POT IS

Terry: LOOK AT THAT.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, OFF THE

FIELD NFL LINEBACKER LORENZO

ALEXANDER FOUNDED A

NON-PROFIT THAT HELPS

CHILDREN IN HIS HOME TOWN.

HE IS A SPOKESMAN FOR THE

NATIONAL KIDNEY FOUNDATION

AND HE HAS DONATED HIS TIME

AND MONEY TO GROUPS LIKE

"TOYS FOR TOTS," AND ANOTHER

FOUNDATION.

BUT ON THE FIELD, LORENZO

ISN'T QUITE SO CHARITABLE

ROUTINELY.

HE FLATTENS HIS OPPONENTS

UNFORTUNATE TO GET IN HIS

WAY.

AND RECENTLY LORENZO SPOKE

WITH SPORTS REPORTER SEAN

BROWN ABOUT HIS CAREER AND

HIS FAITH.

Reporter: WASHINGTON

REDSKINS' LINEBACKER,

LORENZO ALEXANDER, IS ONE

OF

THE HARDEST HITTERS IN THE

GAME.

HE HAS MADE A NAME FOR

HIMSELF AS A PLAY-MAKER ON

SPECIAL TEAMS, AND HE GIVES

GOD ALL OF THE CREDIT FOR

HIS SUCCESS.

ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF THE

PATH HE TOOK TO GET TO THE

NFL.

BEFORE I FOUND CHRIST, I

REALLY WAS JUST LIVING FOR

MYSELF.

WENT OFF TO COLLEGE WITH THE

DRINKING AND THE WOMEN.

I WAS THE STEREOTYPICAL

ATHLETE, JOCK, THAT PEOPLE

ASSOCIATE US WITH.

HOW WE ACT OFF THE FIELD.

Reporter: FOOTBALL WAS

EVERYTHING TO LORENZO.

AFTER PLAYING FOUR YEARS OF

COLLEGE BALL AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA,

BERKELEY, HE ENTERED THE

2005 NFL DRAFT WITH HIGH

HOPES, BUT HIS NAME WASN'T

CALLED.

I WATCHED THE WHOLE DRAFT

THINKING I'M GOING TO GO

SECOND OR THIRD ROUND.

AFTER THAT, I WAS, LIKE, I'M

DONE WITH THIS.

I WENT AND DRUNK MY SORROWS

AWAY, PRETTY MUCH.

I DIDN'T HANDLE IT THE BEST

WAY.

Reporter: HE WENT IN AS

A FREE AGENT, AND THEY ALL

SAID NO THANKS.

BUT IN 2006, HE GOD PICKED

UP BY THE WASHINGTON

REDSKINS ON THE PRACTICE

SQUAD.

DURING THAT TIME, HE NOTICED

THERE WAS SOMETHING

DIFFERENT ABOUT SOME OF HIS

TEAMMATES.

THEY DIDN'T REALLY SAY

I'M A CHRISTIAN, I'M A

CHRISTIAN, YOU SHOULD

BELIEVE IN GOD.

BUT I SAW THE WAY THEY

WALKED THROUGH THE ROOM, THE

WAY THEY DEALT DEALT WITH

THEIR FAMILIES AND GOD EVERY

DAY.

YOU CAN'T MISS IT.

IF YOU KNOW HIM, HE IS

WALKING WITH GOD ON HIS

SHOULDER, IN HIS EAR.

HAS HIS BOOK WITH HIM.

HE IS JUST HAPPY.

Reporter: LORENZO

THOUGHT HAVING FOOTBALL WAS

ALL HE NEEDED TO BE HAPPY.

BUT HE REALIZED HE WASN'T

SATISFIED.

I THINK I WAS MISSING

THAT IN MY LIFE.

I WASN'T AT PEACE.

PEOPLE PERCEIVE ATHLETES

HAVE ALL OF THIS MONEY, SO

YOU'RE HAPPY AND EVERYTHING

IS GOOD.

THE FIRST COUPLE OF YEARS IN

THE LEAGUE, I WOKE UP WITH A

LOT OF REGRET.

I WASN'T PLAYING WELL IN

PRACTICE SQUAD.

I WASN'T REALLY ACHIEVING

ANYTHING.

MY HEART WAS BROKEN.

I WAS MISSING SOMETHING.

AND I SAW THESE BROTHERS,

AND I SAID I NEED TO GET

WHAT THEY HAVE.

WHATEVER THAT IS, I NEED

IT.

Reporter: LORENZO BEGAN

MEETING WITH THE TEAM

CHAPLAIN, AND HE HAD A LOT

OF QUESTIONS FOR HIM.

BUT THAT YEAR HIS TEAM NAT,

SEAN, WAS KILLED IN A HOME

INVASION.

HE HAD TO ASK HIMSELF THE

MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION.

I THOUGHT, MAN, IF I DIED

TODAY, AM I GOING TO GO TO

HEAVEN?

I COULDN'T REALLY ANSWER

THAT QUESTION.

THAT'S WHEN I STARTED

REACHING OUT TO PASTOR BRETT

AND MEETING WITH HIM WEEKLY

AND READING THE BOOK, AND

TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHERE

DO I FIT IN THE GRAND SCHEME

OF THINGS AND HOW CAN I HAVE

A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE LORD.

Reporter: LORENZO GAVE

HIS LIFE TO THE LORD.

HE WAS SURPRISED BY WHAT

STARTED HAPPENING IN HIS

LIFE.

WHEN YOU FIRST COME TO

THE LORD, A LOT OF THE BIG

THINGS KIND OF FALL OFF,

LIKE DRINKING.

WHEN I DRINK, ALL OF THE

MORALITY GOES OUT THE

WINDOW, LIKE RIGHT AND

WRONG.

SO, BAM, I STOPPED

DRINKING.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE THIRST FOR

IT ANYMORE BECAUSE I KNOW

WHERE IT TAKES ME.

MY MOTIVATION CHANGED, NOT

LIVING FOR MYSELF.

LIVING TO PLEASE HIM.

BECAUSE I KNOW IF I PLEASE

HIM, EVERYBODY ELSE IS GOING

TO BE MORE THAN HAPPY WITH

WHAT I'M DOING.

Reporter: HE IS NO

LONGER ON THE PRACTICE SQUAD

BUT MAKING AN IMPACT AS A

LINEBACKER IN ADDITION TO

SPECIAL TEAMS.

AS I'VE GROWN IN THE

LORD, MY CAREER HAS SLOWLY

BUT SURELY JUST KIND OF

TAKEN OFF.

EACH YEAR, YOU KNOW, I'M

BECOMING MORE OF A PROMINENT

PLAYER, MORE OF A KEY PERSON

THAT THE TEAM LOOKS TOWARDS

TO MAKE PLAYS.

IT HAS BEEN GREAT.

IT IS MY RELATIONSHIP WITH

HIM, AND MY CAREER IS

STEADILY GOING UP AS WELL.

IT SHOWS A GREAT CORRELATION

OF HOW THE LORD WORKS WHEN

YOU SEEK HIM AND WORK FOR

HIM.

Reporter: THIS SEASON,

AS THE REDSKINS TRY TO

BATTLE BACK TO THE GLORY

DAYS OF OLD, LORENZO IS

DOING WHAT HE DOES BEST ON

THE FIELD, BY HONORING GOD

ON EVERY PLAY.

I WANT TO GO OUT THERE

AND HONOR HIS NAME THROUGH

THE TALENT HE HAS GIVEN ME.

I DON'T GO OUT THERE PLAYING

MALICIOUSLY, BUT SOMEBODY

COMES AND I'M JUST DOING MY

JOB, AND I WANT TO SHOW THEM

WHAT THE LORD BLESSED WITH

ME.

HE BLESSED ME WITH A GOOD

BODY, 270, AND I CAN RUN.

I TRY TO PLAY THAT WAY, AT A

HIGH LEVEL, ALL OF THE

TIME.

YOU SERVE HIM, PICKING UP

YOUR CROSS EVERY DAY, AND

GOING THROUGH SOME

HARDSHIPS, BUT ONCE YOU GET

TO HIM, YOU WILL BE SO MUCH

OF A BETTER PERSON AND IN A

PLACE YOU WANT TO BE.

Pat: LISTEN, LORENZO

ASKED THE RIGHT QUESTION,

AND I'LL ASK IT TO YOU:

WHERE WOULD YOU GO IF YOU

GOT HIT BY A TRUCK, IF YOU

WERE IN A PLANE CRASH, IN A

CAR CRASH, IF YOU HAD A

STROKE, HEART ATTACK,ñ

SOMETHING HAPPENED TO YOU?

WE'RE ALL FALLIBLE, AND

WE'RE ALL HUMAN, AND THE

WORD "MORMORTAL" MEANS

WE'RE ALL SUBJECT TO DEATH.

YOU HAVE A SPIRIT, YOU HAVE

AN ETERNAL, IMMORTAL

SPIRIT.

AND YOUR SPIRIT IS GOING TO

BE WITH GOD, IN PARADISE

FOREVER, OR YOU WILL BE AWAY

FROM HIM FOREVER AND YOU

WILL BE PUNISHED FOR THE

SINS YOU COMMITTED IN THIS

LIFE.

THE DIFFERENCE IS BECAUSE

JESUS PAID THE PRICE TO HAVE

GOD FORGIVE YOU FOR YOUR

SINS SO YOU COULD ENTER

PARADISE.

AND IT IS A FREE GIFT, BUT

YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR IT AND

YOU HAVE TO RECEIVE IT AND

YOU HAVE TO SURRENDER TO

IT.

AND IF YOU WANT THAT

BLESSING, RIGHT NOW I'M

GOING TO GIVE YOU A CHANCE

TO GET IT.

I WANT YOU IN HEAVEN.

I WANT YOU TO SPEND ETERNITY

WITH GOD IN HEAVEN.

IN JOY AND IN PEACE.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO BURN IN

THE FIRES OF HELL.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO SUFFER

ETERNITY OF TORMENT.

IF YOU WANT THAT BLESSING

THAT I'M HOLDING OUT TO YOU,

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME

AND LET'S ASK GOD RIGHT

NOW.

THESE WORDS: LORD, JESUS

CHRIST -- PRAY WITH ME.

SAY WHAT I SAY, BUT MEAN IT

IN YOUR HEART.

LORD, JESUS CHRIST, YOU KNOW

I'M A SINNER, AND I KNOW IF

I DIED I WOULD NOT BE WITH

YOU IN HEAVEN FOREVER.

BUT, LORD, I WANT TO BE IN

HEAVEN.

I WANT TO BE PART OF THE

RESURRECTION OF THE JUST.

I WANT TO BE PART OF

PARADISE.

SO, LORD, I OPEN MY HEART TO

YOU.

AND I SAY, COME IN, TAKE

OVER MY LIFE, LIVE YOUR LIFE

IN ME, AND I WILL LIVE FOR

YOU AND I WILL SERVE YOU ALL

OF THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THAT YOU'VE HEARD MY

PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU, LORD, THAT

YOU'VE COME INTO MY HEART.

LORD, FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED

JUST THEN, LET THE GLORY OF

THE LORD COME UPON THEM.

FILL THEM WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT FROM THIS MOMENT ON

IN JESUS' NAME.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE

BOOK.

I WANT TO HELP YOU, START

YOU OUT, BECAUSE THERE IS A

WAY TO GO UNTIL THAT DAY

WHEN HE TAKES YOU HOME.

I WANT YOU TO CALL IN RIGHT

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

I WANT YOU TO TELL THE

PERSON AT THE PHONE THAT YOU

JUST PRAYED WITH ME.

AND YOU HAVE GIVEN YOUR

HEART TO JESUS.

AND THEY WILL REJOICE WITH

YOU.

AND THEN THEY WILL ALSO SEND

YOU, IF YOU ASK, IF YOU

WISH, A PACKET CALLED "A NEW

DAY" THAT HAS A C.D. IN

HERE, A COMPACT DISC, THAT

WILL TELL YOU -- 70

SOMETHING MINUTES OF

TEACHING YOU EXACTLY WHAT

YOU'VE DONE AND WHAT IS

AHEAD FOR YOU.

I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

JUST PICK UP THE PHONE AND

CALL.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

EVERYTHING IS FREE.

WHAT GOD DID FOR YOU ISN'T

FREE; IT COST THE LIFE OF

HIS SON.

WHAT WE'RE OFFERING IS

ABSOLUTELY FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

GO TO YOUR PHONE AND CALL

RIGHT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, WE

HAVE YOUR QUESTIONS FOR

PAT.

BUT, FIRST, A SINGLE MOTHER

IS FORCED TO FEND FOR

HERSELF AND BUILD A HOUSE

FOR HER THREE KIDS WITH HER

BARE HANDS.

HEAR HER STORY WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: OKAY.

Terry: WE'VE GOT --

Pat: WE'VE GOT LOTS OF

THINGS.

WHEN ELIZABETH'S HUSBAND

ABANDONED HER, SHE WORKED

HARD TO GIVE HER THREE

CHILDREN A HOME.

BUT THE ONLY ONE SHE COULD

AFFORD WAS A SHACK MADE OF

STICKS AND PLASTIC.

Reporter: LIFE WAS

ALREADY HARD FOR IL BENYL

AN -- ELIZABETH AND HER

THREE CHILDREN WHEN HER

HUSBAND DECIDED TO ABANDON

HIS FAMILY.

ELIZABETH AND HER KIDS MOVED

IN WITH HER SISTER.

SHE SAVED AND SEARCHED TO

FIND PLASTIC TARPS FROM

WHICH SHE MADE A ROOF FOR

THIS MAKESHIFT HOUSE.

I REMEMBER ONE NIGHT IT

RAINED AND THE PLASTIC BEGAN

TO LEAK.

MY CHILDREN GOT WET AND SO I

HAD TO GET THEM UP TO CHANGE

THEIR CLOTHES.

Reporter: ELIZABETH

DOES WHERE SHE CAN TO MAKE

MONEY.

SOME DAYS SHE GOES TO THE

MARKET TO PEEL GARLIC OR

UNIONS FOR A DOLLAR A DAY.

ONE DAY WE FOUND ELIZABETH

LIVING WITH HER KIDS UNDER

THAT PLASTIC TARP.

THAT SAME DAY WE TOLD HER WE

WOULD BUILD HER A NEW HOUSE

FOR FREE.

I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT.

I NEVER THOUGHT ANYONE WOULD

BUILD ME A HOUSE.

I WATCHED THEM BUILD IT WITH

GREAT JOY.

Reporter: WITHIN A

SINGLE DAY, "OPERATION

BLESSING" PUT UP THE NEW

HOUSE AND GAVE ELIZABETH THE

CAY.

WHEN THEY GAVE ME THE

KEYS TO MY NEW HOUSE, I

CRIED.

BUT THEY WERE TEARS OF JOY.

Reporter: TO HELP

ELIZABETH BOOST HER INCOME,

"OPERATION BLESSING"

ENROLLED HER IN A SEWING

WORKSHOP.

I AM LEARNING TO SEW

TOWELS, APRONS, AND SHIRTS.

I WANT TO START MY OWN

BUSINESS.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR GIVING ME THE

HELP AND SEWING CLASSES.

NOW MY CHILDREN AND I WILL

STAY WARM AND DRY.

Pat: THERE ARE SO MANY

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WHO

SUFFER.

AND IF WE LOVE JESUS -- IF

WE LOVE JESUS, WE'RE GOING

TO BE HIS HAND EXTENDED TO

THOSE WHO ARE POOR AND

NEEDY.

AND HE SAYS WHEN HE COMES

BACK AGAIN, HE IS GOING TO

SAY, I WAS HUNGRY AND YOU

FED ME.

I WAS NAKED AND YOU CLOTHED

ME.

I WAS SICK IN PRISON, AND

YOU CAME AND VISITED ME.

IF YOU'VE DONE IT TO THE

LEAST OF THESE, MY BROTHER,

YOU'VE DONE IT TO ME.

WHEN WE REACH OUT TO PEOPLE,

LIKE THAT POOR WOMEN IN

LATIN-AMERICA, SHE IS JUST

ONE OF MILLIONS AND MILLIONS

WHO SUFFER, BUT WE CAN HELP

THEM.

AND IT JUST TAKES $20 A

MONTH TO JOIN OUR "700

CLUB."

65 CENTS A DAY.

OR YOU CAN DO MORE, IF YOU

WANT TO THE.

THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHAT

YOU CAN DO.

BUT TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE.

FOR THOSE WHO SHARE IN IT, I

HAVE JUST FINISHED DOING A

C.D. -- IS IT A C.D. OR

D.V.D.?

Terry: D.V.D.?

Pat: THERE ARE SO MANY

"D"s.

THIS IS A D.V.D.

IT'S A VIDEO.

"GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."

I THINK YOU'LL FIND IT

INSPIRATIONAL.

IT SHOWS THE HISTORY OF

AMERICA, AND WHERE WE HAVE

COME FROM, AND WHAT GOD

INTENDS FOR US AS A NATION.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU FREE,

AS MY GIFT TO YOU, AND I ASK

YOU JUST TO CALL IN AND SAY,

YOU CAN COUNT ON ME.

I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WHO

ARE POOR AND NEED HELP.

PICK UP THE PHONE,

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, WE'VE GOT SOME

QUESTIONS.

Terry: WE DO HAVE SOME

E-MAILS THAT HAVE COME IN.

THIS IS FROM JOENE.

AND SHE SAYS, "A LADY IN MY

CHURCH SAYS THE LORD TOLD

HER THE LORD WAS GOING TO

SHORTEN MY HUSBAND'S DAYS.

I DIDN'T TELL MY HUSBAND

WHAT THIS WOMAN SAID.

SHOULD I PUT ANY STOCK IN

WHAT THIS WOMEN SAID?

SHE CONSIDERS HERSELF A

PROPHET?"

Pat: I WOULDN'T BELIEVE

THAT.

THE BIBLE SAYS A CURSE

CANNOT LIE.

DON'T RECEIVE IT.

DO NOT RECEIVE THAT.

I DO NOT RECEIVE THAT

WOMAN.

GOD DIDN'T SEND YOU.

A WOMAN CAME TO JOHN

WESLEY -- I LOVE THIS

STORY -- AND SHE SAYS,

PASTOR WESLEY, GOD HAS

REVEALED ABOUT YOU.

AND HE SAID, WHAT DO HE

REVEAL?

AND SHE SAID, GOD HAS

REVEALED YOU'RE BEDDING DOWN

WITH A WHORE.

AND WESLEY SAID, WOMAN, WHAT

YOU SAY ISN'T TRUE.

GOD NEVER SENT YOU.

Terry: AND JUST STOPPED

IT RIGHT THERE.

Pat: AND STOPPED IT

RIGHT THERE BECAUSE IT WAS

JUST A LIE.

DON'T LISTEN TO THAT STUFF.

THESE SELF-APPOINTED GUR

GURUS, DON'T PAY ANY

ATTENTION TO IT.

Terry: THIS MAN

SAYS, "I'M CRACK ADDICTED,

AND I'VE GONE TO IN-PATIENT

AND OUT-PATIENT REHAB.

I'VE SEEN STORY AFTER STORY

OF GOD HEALING PEOPLE.

WHY DOESN'T HE LOVE ME

ENOUGH TO HEAL ME?"

Pat: GOD WILL HELP

YOU.

IT IS LIKE HAVING A PET

COBRA.

THE BEST THING TO DO IS KILL

HIM.

BUT IF YOU WANT TO TAKE HIM

OUT OF HIS CAGE AND PLAY

WITH HIM, HE IS GOING TO

BITE YOU.

21 DAYS IS WHAT IT TAKES TO

FORM A HABIT OR BREAK A

HABIT.

21 DAYS YOU DON'T USE COKE,

21 DAYS YOU DON'T USE

MARIJUANA.

YOU DON'T DO ANY OF THESE

THINGS FOR 21 DAYS.

AND YOUR BODY WILL BE

CLEANSED OUT.

IN THE MEANTIME, GET OUT IN

THE SUNSHINE AND GET

EXERCISE.

AND DON'T BE TALKING ABOUT

WHY DIDN'T GOD DELIVER ME.

YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING

YOURSELF.

BUT START EXERCISING.

GO FOR A WALK IN THE

SUNSHINE.

YOU NEED TO GET SEROTONIN

COMING IN THROUGH YOUR EYES

TO GET OUT OF THAT STUFF.

YOU LIVE IN A DARK ROOM.

AND I IMAGINE YOU DO THAT.

I IMAGINE YOU'VE GOT A DARK

ROOM.

YOU'VE GOT THE BLINDS SHUT

AND YOU SIT IN THERE ALL DAY

LONG AND SAY WHY DIDN'T GOD

SET ME FREE.

Terry: AND GET SOME

PRAYER PARTNERS.

THIS IS LUCY WHO SAYS, "I'VE

SEEN JESUS HALLOWEEN

COSTUMES SOLD ONLINE.

IS IT SACRELIGIOUS FOR

SOMEONE TO DRESS UP AS JESUS

ON HALLOWEEN, OR WOULD IT

HELP GET THE WORD OUT?"

Pat: NO, IT DOESN'T.

HALLOWEEN, ALL SAINTS' EVE

IS THE EVENING FOR WITCHES

AND GOBLINS -- IT IS ALL

DEMONIC.

JESUS ISN'T PART OF IT AND

DON'T MAKE HIM PART OF IT.

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE

SOMETHING AT YOUR CHURCH AND

BOB FOR APPLES, THAT IS

COOL, BUT DON'T DRESS UP AS

JESUS.

Terry: "HOW DO YOU KNOW

WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

TELLING YOU TO DO THAT

SOMETHING, AS OPPOSED TO IT

BEING YOUR IDEA?"

Pat: I WOULD TURN TO

HEBREWS, WHERE IT SAYS

"THOSE CAN DISCERN GOOD FOR

EVIL."

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR

PRACTICE.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR

EXPERIENCE.

YOU GET USED TO

UNDERSTANDING WHEN GOD IS

SPEAKING, AND YOU GET USED

TO UNDERSTANDING WHEN HE IS

NOT.

YOU REALIZE WITH HUMILITY

THAT EVEN THE MOST GODLY

AMONG US CAN BE MISLED.

SO WITH A GREAT DEGREE OF

HUMILITY YOU APPROACH THE

LORD AND SAY, PLEASE LEAD

ME.

BUT GOD -- I HEARD IT SAID

ONCE UPON A TIME, GOD WILL

MOVE HEAVEN AND EARTH TO

KEEP YOU FROM BEING MISLED

IF YOU WILL SURRENDER TO HIM

AND ASK FOR HIS GUIDANCE.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

ENJOY THE MINESTRONE.

MAKE GREAT PASTA.

IT'S HEALTHY VEGETABLES.

AND TOMORROW WE'LL HEAR FROM

A MAN WHO H HAD A VISION OF

HEAVEN.

I WANT TO FIND OUT WHAT HE

SAW.

I KNOW YOU DO, TOO.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PSALMS:

"CAST YOUR BURDEN ON THE

LORD, AND HE SHALL SUSTAIN

YOU."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
