Pat: A HOUSE DIVIDED

AGAINST ITSELF CANNOT

STAND.

Lee: ALL FOR ONE, AND

ONE FOR ALL.

Pat: IF YOU CAN GET

TOGETHER, THERE IS NOTHING

YOU CAN'T ACCOMPLISH.

Lee: IT'S THE

GUARANTEED WAY TO SUCCEED,

STRAIGHT FROM THE SECRET

KINGDOM.

Pat: NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

Lee: LEARN ABOUT THE

LAW OF UNITY, TODAY ON "THE

700 CLUB."

Pat: IF YOU HAVE

DISHARMONY, YOU ACCOMPLISH

NOTHING.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

MAN, IT'S COLD OUT THERE IN

TEXAS AND KANSAS.

AND A BIG SNOWSTORM.

AND AMARILLO, I UNDERSTAND,

HAS RECORD SNOWFALL, A FOOT

AND A HALF OUR SO.

IT IS REALLY SLICK.

IT KEEPS ON SNOWING.

Kristi: AND IT RAINED

LIKE A BANCHI HERE.

Pat: IT KEPT RAINING

AND RAINING AND RAINING.

GUESS WHICH AGE GROUP HAS AN

EPIDEMIC OF S.T.D.s.

Kristi: I WOULD

INSTANTLY SAY THE YOUNGER

GROUP, BUT I'M THINKING IT

IS THE WRONG ANSWER.

Pat: THAT'S THE WRONG

ANSWER.

SENIORS, OLD LADIES, THEY'RE

OUT THERE DOING IT.

Kristi: WELL, THEY'RE

NOT OUT THERE DOING IT BY

THEMSELVES.

Pat: I KNOW.

AND THEY'RE CATCHING THINGS,

TOO.

YOUNG AND OLD.

Kristi: WHAT A WAY TO

START THE SHOW, PAT.

Pat: I THINK WE SHOULD

BRING SOME OF THESE THINGS

OUT.

AND WE'VE GOT GOOD NEWS ON

THE HOUSING FRONT.

WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD NEWS ON

THIS PROGRAM AND INTERESTING

QUESTIONS THAT YOU'VE

ASKED.

FIRST OF ALL, IT SEEMS LIKE

WE'RE IN PERPETUAL CAMPAIGN

MODE.

THE PRESIDENT LIKES TO

CAMPAIGN.

AND HE WAS IN -- GUESS WHAT

HE WAS GOING AFTER IN

NEWPORT NEWS YESTERDAY?

Kristi: WHAT, PAT,

WHAT?

Pat: CORPORATE JETS.

IF WE JUST STOP THOSE

CORPORATE JETS.

Kristi: NO!

Pat: I SAW ONE

COMMENTATOR SAY IF YOU TAKE

AWAY THE EXEMPTION FOR THE

DEDUCTION FOR ALL OF THE

CORPORATE JETS FOR 100

YEARS, YOU WOULD PAY HIS

DEFICIT FOR A MONTH.

SO, IN ANY EVENT, THEY'RE

NOT FOCUSING ON THE

PROBLEM.

BUT WE'LL TELL YOU MORE

ABOUT IT.

Kristi: WE WILL.

AND WHO WILL TELL YOU?

EPHRAIM GRAHAM.

HE HAS A LOOK AT WHAT THE

LOCALS ARE SAYING ABOUT

THESE BUDGET CUTS, AND HOW

THEY PLAN TO DEAL WITH

THEM.

Reporter: WHITE HOUSE

NUMBERS PROJECT, VIRGINIA

WOULD BE AMONG THE HARDEST

HIT BY A DROP IN PENTAGON

SPENDING.

AS PART OF THE $85 BILLION

IN AUTOMATIC BUDGET CUTS

THAT ARE PART OF THE

SEQUESTRATION.

AROUND 90,000 CIVILIAN@ú

DEFENSE DEPARTMENT WORKERS

COULD BE FURLOUGHED, SO THE

PRESIDENT TOOK HIS CASE TO

THE HAMPTON ROADS REGION OF

VIRGINIA.

HOME TO AMERICA'S LARGEST

MILITARY INSULATION.

HE PAID A VISIT TO THE

SHIPYARD IN NEWPORT NEWS,

WHERE ALL OF THE NAVY'S

AIRCRAFT CARRIERS ARE

BUILT.

IT EMPLOYEES THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE TO BUILD AND MAINTAIN

SHIPS FOR THE NAVY AND THE

COAST GUARD.

President Obama: THIS

SEQUESTER USES A MEAT

CLEAVER.

Reporter: BUT SOME CALL

THE PRESIDENT'S CAMPAIGN FOR

THE AUTOMATIC CUTS A PUSH TO

SPREAD FEAR AMONG THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

AT THIS HAMPTON ROADS

TOWNHALL THREE CONGRESSMEN

HEARD MORE FRUSTRATION AND

FEAR.

ZUES IS A BIKER.

HE OWNS THIS CUSTOM BIKE

SHOP, AND 90% OF HIS

COSTUMERS ARE MILITARY

MEMBERS.

GUYS THAT ARE BEING READY

TO BE DEPLOYED, THEIR

DEPLOYMENTS ARE GETTING CUT,

OR THEY'RE NOT SURE, SO

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO SPEND

THEIR RECREATION MONEY

BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO TAKE

CARE OF THEIR HOME FIRST.

Reporter: SO HE IS

TAKING CARE OF HOME, TOO.

HE HAS DELAYED EXPANDING HIS

BUSINESS, PUT OFF HIRING

PEOPLE, AND EVEN CUT HIS OWN

PAY.

HE WOULD LIKE WASHINGTON TO

FOLLOW HIS BUSINESS MODEL.

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS.

IT IS JUST TIME THAT WE

MAKE THEM RESPONSIBLE FOR

WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

OTHERWISE, THEY'RE GOING TO

GET LET GO.

I'VE HAD EMPLOYEES -- IT'S

LIKE, IF YOU'RE NOT DOING

THE JOB THAT YOU'RE HIRED TO

DO, I CAN'T KEEP PAYING

YOU.

Reporter: THAT

FRUSTRATION DOESN'T FALL ON

DEAF EARS.

IT IS WHY REPUBLICAN

CONGRESSMAN SCOTT MITCHELL,

ROBERT WIBETTMAN, AND RANDY

FORBES, CALLED THE TOWN

MEETING.

THE LIKELIHOOD OF THIS

HAPPENING IS VERY, VERY

HIGH.

WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO

TALK TO OTHERS AND SAY, WHAT

THIS MEANS TO THE NATION AS

A WHOLE.

WHAT THIS DOES TO OUR

MILITARY READINESS.

DEFENSE IS NOT A FAUCET.

YOU DON'T JUST TURN IT OFF

FOR THREE MONTHS AND TURN IT

BACK ON.

SOME OF THESE

AVAILABILITIES, IF THEY GET

DELAYED, IT WILL NEVER

HAPPEN.

Reporter: THE THREAT OF

CUTS TO MILITARY TRAINING IS

WHAT WORRIES AMANDA.

HER HUSBAND HAS DEPLOYED

THREE TIMES.

WE DISCUSSED WHAT IT IS

GOING TO LOOK LIKE.

WE'RE, LIKE, IT IS GOING TO

BE UGLY.

WE'RE HOPING THEY COME TO AN

AGREEMENT AND SOMETHING

PASSES, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.

THIS IS SOMETHING WE CAN

CLEARLY FIX.

AND WE JUST NEED TO GET TO

WORK AND DO IT.

Reporter: CONGRESSMAN

BOBBY SCOTT IS ALSO HEARING

FROM FRUSTRATED HAMPTON

ROADS VOTERS.

THE DEMOCRAT MADE THE

UNPOPULAR VOTE AGAINST

EXTENDING THE TAX CUTS BACK

IN JANUARY.

WE SHOULD NOT HAVE

EXTENDED THE TAX CUTS UNTIL

THE SE SEQUESTER WAS TAKEN

CARE OF.

Reporter: FOR NOW, THE

SEQUESTER APPEARS LIKELY, IF

NOT CERTAIN.

BUT MANY OF THOSE AFFECTED

BY IT SAY THEY'LL GET BY AND

MAKE DO AS THEY HAVE TO.

THEY WIS WISH WASHINGTON

WOULD FIND A WAY TO DO THE

SAME.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT WOULD BE SO

SIMPLE IF THEY WOULD LOOK

AND SAY THERE ARE CERTAIN

THINGS WE'RE DOING THAT JUST

ARE NOT NECESSARY.

AND WE COULD STOP THEM IF WE

JUST HAD AN INTELLIGENT LOOK

AT IT.

BUT THE PRESIDENT IS

COMMITED TO ONE THING:

BIGGER AND BIGGER AND BIGGER

GOVERNMENT WITH HIGHER AND

HIGHER TAXES.

THAT'S HIS GOAL, TO EXPAND

THE SCOPE OF GOVERNMENT.

AND HE ISN'T GOING TO HEAR

ANYTHING THAT INVOLVES

CUTTING IT BACK.

HE JUST IS GOING TO SAY,

I'VE GOT TO HAVE MORE MONEY,

MORE MONEY, MORE MONEY.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO PUT

THESE CUTS IN ON THE BACKS

OF THE POOR.

AND YOU'RE EXEMPTING THESE

RICH PEOPLE WHO HAVE

CORPORATE JETS AND SO

FORTH.

HE SAID CORPORATE JETS IN

NEWPORT NEWS.

AND ONCE AGAIN HE IS PLAYING

THAT CARD.

I'LL TELL YOU, THESE GUYS

HAVE GOT TO GET TOGETHER,

AND WE HAVE TO HAVE A

PRESIDENT WHO CARES ABOUT

AMERICA.

AND WE HAVE TO HAVE

CONGRESSMEN WHO CARE ABOUT

AMERICA.

THEY NEED TO GET TOGETHER.

THERE ARE EASY SOLUTIONS TO

THIS ONE.

I MEAN, 2%, 3% OUT OF A

GIGANTIC BUDGET, OUT OF A

HUGE GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT

IS NOTHING.

BY THE WAY, I HAVE A M MIA

COPA.

I SAID THAT CHUCK HAGEL

DIDN'T HAVE ANY BUSINESS

EXPERIENCE.

I WAS WRONG.

SOMEBODY E-MAILED ME AND

SAID YOU ARE WRONG.

HE WAS A CO-FOUNDER OF

VANGUARD CELLULAR, AND HE

WAS THE PRESIDENT OF A

BANKING FIRM IN NEBRASKA.

AND HE HAD OTHER BUSINESS

INTERESTS.

SO HE WASN'T JUST A GRUNT ON

THE FRONT LINES WHO GOT

WOUNDED.

HE DOES HAVE EXPERIENCE.

SO MAYBE, MAYBE, MAYBE HE'LL

TURN OUT TO BE A GOOD

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE.

Kristi: WE HOPE.

Pat: WE EARNESTLY HOPE

SO.

OUR NEW SECRETARY OF DEFENSE

IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIGURE

OUT HOW TO DEAL WITH THOSE

SPENDING CUTS.

LEE WEBB HAS THE STORY ON

THE VOTE, THE BATTLE OVER

THE NEW SECRETARY.

LEE?

Lee: FORMER REPUBLICAN

SENATOR CHUCK HAGEL IS

FINALLY TAKING CHARGE AT THE

PENTAGON.

THE SENATE VOTED TO CONFIRM

HIM, DESPITE STRONG

OPPOSITION FROM HER FORMER

G.O.P. COLLEAGUES.

THE VOTE WAS 58-41.

REPUBLICANS, THOUGH, STILL

QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT

HAGEL IS UP TO THE JOB.

THERE IS SIMPLY NO WAY TO

SUGAR COAT IT.

SENATOR HAGEL'S PERFORMANCE

BEFORE THE SENATE ARMS

SERVICE COMMITTEE WAS

REMARKABLY INEPT.

WE SHOULD NOT BE INSTALLING

A DEFENSE SECRETARY WHO IS

OBVIOUSLY NOT QUALIFIED FOR

THE JOB, AND WHO HOLDS

DANGEROUSLY MISGUIDED VIEWS

ON SOME OF THE IMPORTANT

ISSUES FACING NATIONAL

SECURITY POLICY FOR OUR

COUNTRY.

Lee: THE VOTE ENDED ONE

OF THE TOUGHEST FIGHTS OVER

A CABINET CHOICE IN 20

YEARS.

THE HOUSING MARKET IS

SHOWING MORE SIGNS THAT THE

HOUSING RECOVERY IS REAL.

THE HOME PRICES HAVE ROSE

THE MOST SINCE 2008.

THEY INDICATE THAT THE

HOUSING RECOVERY IS

SUSTAINABLE.

RECORD-LOW MORTGAGE RATES IS

A MAJOR REASON.

BUT HOUSING ANALYSTS CAUTION

THAT THE HOME MARKET STILL

HAS A WAY TO GO BEFORE IT IS

CONSIDERED TRULY HEALTHY

AGAIN.

RESIDENTS OF A SMALL EAST

TEXAS TOWN ARE ONCE AGAIN

TAKING UP THE DEBATE OVER

BIBLE VERSES ON BANNERS AS

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAMES.

THE COOTS SCHOOL OPENED ITS

DOORS TO A PUBLIC MEETING.

THEY WANTED TO INSPIRE

THEIR FOOTBALL TEAM.

THEY ARE TRUE LEADERS.

WHAT IF NEXT YEAR A HINDU

STUDENT OR BUDDHIST STUDENT

MAKES THE TEAM.

IS SHE GOING TO GET KICKED

OFF FOR NOT AGREEING WITH

IT.

WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE.

I HAVE LEARNED TO SHARE

MY FAITH.

BEING TOLD YOU CAN'T DO THAT

IS NOT EASY.

Lee: CBN NEWS BROUGHT

YOU THIS STORY OF THE BIBLE

VERSE BANNERS LAST FALL.

THE SCHOOL BOARD BANNED THEM

AT FOOTBALL GAMES AFTER THE

FREEDOM FROM RELIGION

FOUNDATION FILED A LAWSUIT

AGAINST THE SCHOOL.

BUT THE JUDGE HAS BLOCKED

THE BAN AS THE TOWN AWAITS A

TRIAL THIS SUMMER.

A LACK OF SLEEP CAN HAVE AN

IMPACT ON MORE THAN JUST

YOUR MOOD.

JUST ONE WEEK OF POOR SLEEP

COULD AFFECT UP TO 700

DIFFERENT GENES.

THOSE GENES ARE ASSOCIATED

WITH THE IMMUNE SYSTEM,

METABOLISM, AND STRESS

RESPONSES.

RESEARCHERS SAY DISRUPTING

THOSE GENES INCREASES THE

RISK OF HEART DISEASE,

DIABETES, OBESITY, AND

STRESS.

Pat: THANK YOU.

KRISTI, I DO HOPE YOU GET

ENOUGH SLEEP.

Kristi: THAT IS THE ONE

THING YOU CAN NEVER WORRY

ABOUT.

I LOVE SLEEP.

I REALLY DO.

NOT JUST EIGHT HOURS.

NINE, TEN, AND I AM LOVELY.

Pat: THERE ARE TWO

HORMONES, ONE IS CALLED

GERLIN AND ONE IS CALL

LEPTIN.

IF YOU LOSE SLEEP, YOU GET

HUNGRY.

YOU WANT MORE FOOD.

THE STUDY SHOWS IT HAS

DEVASTATING IMPACT.

SO YOU NEED SEVEN OR EIGHT

HOURS OF SLEEP A NIGHT, AND

MOST PEOPLE DON'T GET IT.

Kristi: HOW MANY HOURS

OF SLEEP DO YOU GET?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

MIDNIGHT TO SIX -- HOW LONG

IS THAT?

Kristi: SIX HOURS.

Pat: 11 TO SIX --

Kristi: SEVEN HOURS.

I WILL GO TO BED AT 9:00 AND

STILL TRY TO WAKE UP AT

9:00.

DON'T GET ME STARTED.

Pat: GOOD FOR FU.

THAT'S WHY YOU ARE SO

VIVACIOUS.

Kristi: COMING UP, THEY

ARE THE FEW AND THE PROUD.

LEARN ABOUT AMERICA'S FIRST

BLACK MARINES, UP NEXT.

Pat: WELL, I'M PROUD TO

SAY THAT THERE IS NO SUCH

THING AS AN EX-MARINE.

I AM A MARINE.

I SAID ONCE I'M AN

EX-MARINE, AND SOMEBODY

SAID, NO, YOU'RE NOT.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING.

I WENT THROUGH THE TRAINING

AND GOT A COMMISSION AND

GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE AND

WENT TO FIRST BASIC SCHOOL

AND THEN SHIPPED OVERSEAS.

DID A FEW THINGS.

IT'S A GREAT OUTFIT.

THE MARINES ARE TREMENDOUS.

Kristi: ABSOLUTELY.

Pat: IF YOU WANT TO

BECOME A MARINE, YOU HAVE TO

MAKE IT THROUGH TRAINING

THAT CAN BE GRUELING AND

TOUGH.

BUT ONCE YOU'VE MADE IT,

YOU'RE PART OF THAT

DISTINGUISHED CORPS FOR

LIFE.

IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST HAVE

BEEN LIKE FOR SOME OF THE

FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICANS TO

JOIN THE FRU AN FEW AND THE

PROUD.

JOHN JESSOP BRINGS US THE

STORY OF THE MONFORD POINT

MARINES.

WE WAS CALLED THE CHOSEN

FEW.

AND THE GROUP OF COLORED

MARINES WHO FOUGHT FOR THE

RIGHT TO FIGHT.

Reporter: JUNE 1st,

1942, AT ONE MINUTE AFTER

MIDNIGHT, HUNDREDS LINE UP

AS THE MARINES RECRUIT

AFRICAN-AMERICANS FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

THEY CAME FROM ALL WALKS OF

LIFE, DOCTORS, TEACHERS,

MUSICIANS, AND ATHLETES.

SOME WERE EVEN ARMY OFFICERS

WHO TOOK DISCHARGES TO JOIN

THE MARINE CORPS AND PAVE A

NEW PATH.

THEIR JOURNEY BEGAN WITH

BOOTCAMP AT MONFORD POINT, A

SEGREGATED TRAINING FACILITY

AT CAMP LEJEUNE.

BY THE TIME I ARRIVED,

THEY SWITCHED FROM WHITE

INSTRUCTORS TO BLACK

INSTRUCTORS.

THEY FELT THAT THE ROUGHER

THEY WERE ON YOU, THE MORE

YOU LEARNED TO TAKE CARE OF

YOUR LIFE.

Reporter: RUBIN MCNAIR,

THEN A YOUNG KID FROM

MISSISSIPPI, ENLISTED IN

1944.

THE MARINES WERE, THEY

SAID, WERE FIGHTING ON LAND,

AIR, SEA, WATER, AND I

WANTED TO BE ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE.

PLUS, I LOVED THE UNIFORM.

THOSE DRESS BLUES -- I

CONTINUED WAIT TO PUT A

DRESS BLUE ON.

Reporter: HE KNEW IT

WOULD BE A CHALLENGE.

WE HAD A GENTLEMEN CALLED

JUDO JONES.

AND YOU LEARNED TO FLIP

PEOPLE FROM ONE SIDE TO THE

OTHER.

Reporter: BUT HE HAD

ANOTHER GOAL IN MIND.

BY THE TIME I WAS 10 OR

12 YEARS OLD, I COULD TAKE A

22 RIFLE AND STRIKE A MATCH

25 YARDS AWAY.

I WAS VERY SKILLFUL AT

SHOOTING.

I MADE ONE MISTAKE.

I KEPT ASKING THE DRILL

INSTRUCTOR, WHEN ARE WE

GOING TO FIRE THE GUN?

AND THE DRILL INSTRUCTOR

WOULD LOOK AT ME AND SAY,

LAD, IT'S NOT A GUN.

THIS IS A RIFLE.

Reporter: AFTER RUNNING

A FEW LAPS AROUND THE

PLATOON, HOLDING THE RIFLE

OVER HIS HEAD, HE GOT IT

RIGHT, AND SIX WEEKS LATER,

MCNAIR FINALLY GOT TO SHOW

WHAT HE COULD DO.

WE GO TO THE RIFLE RANGE,

AND MY DRILL INSTRUCTOR

COMES OVER AND PATS ME ON

THE SHOULDER, AND HE SAYS,

YOUNG LAD, YOU'VE BEEN

TALKING ABOUT HOW GOOD YOU

CAN FIRE THIS GUN.

TODAY YOU CAN CALL IT GUN,

YOU CAN CALL IT BABY,

SWEETHEART -- SHOW ME YOUR

STUFF.

CAN YOU REALLY DO IT?

YES, SIR.

I START OUT AT THE 200-YARD

LINE, AND I CHOSE THE BULL

EYE'S OUT, AND I'M KNOCKING

THE EYE OUT.

GO BACK TO THE 300-YARD LINE

AND I'M KNOCKING THIS THING

OUT.

WHEN I FINISHED BOOTCAMP, I

WAS AN EXPERT MARKSMAN

SHOOTER.

Reporter: THE RIGGERS

OF TRAINING BEHIND HIM,Mñ

MCNAIR SET OFF FOR THE SOUTH

PACIFIC, READY FOR ACTION.

BUT...

THEY MADE IT VERY CLEAR

THAT MY JOB, OR ALL

AFRICAN-AMERICANS, MARINES,

WERE TO GET THE AMMUNITION

OUT AND BRING THE WOUNDED

BACK.

Reporter:

DISCOURAGEMENT SET IN.

IT WAS VERY CLEAR WE

WASN'T WANTED IN THE MARINE

CORPS.

Reporter: BUT

AFRICAN-AMERICANS WERE AND

ARE AN INTRICAL PART OF THE

MARINE CORPS.

AS TIME WOULD TELL, THEY

WERE SERVE IN SOME OF THE

MOST IMPORTANT BATTLES OF

KOREA, THE PACIFIC AND

VIETNAM.

MCNAIR LED WHITE AND BLACK

TROOPS, BUT THE EXCITEMENT

DIDN'T LAST LONG.

AFTER HIS UNIT SURVIVED A

BLISTERING ATTACK, ONLY THE

WHITE STAFF SERGEANT IN THE

GROUP RECEIVED A SILVER

STAR.

MCNAIR GOT NOTHING.

THERE WAS NOTHING

OFFICIALLY PUT IN THE

RECORD, SO THERE WAS NOTHING

WE DO COULD DO ABOUT IT.

I SAID, LOOK, JUST KNOWING

YOU WERE PART OF 43 PEOPLE,

AND YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE LEFT

LIVING, IT WAS WORTH

SOMETHING.

Reporter: MCNAIR SAYS

FAITH HELPED TO KEEP AWAY

THE BITTERNESS.

I GREW UP IN THE CHURCH,

AND I'VE ALWAYS BEEN SORT OF

A CLOSE PERSON TO GOD.

AND I JUST FELT THAT HE MADE

ME, AND HE MADE ME STRONG.

Reporter: AND AS THE

BIBLE SAYS, ALL THINGS WORK

TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM

THAT LOVE GOD.

LAST YEAR THE MONFORD POINT

MARINES WERE AWARDED THE

CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL,

THANKFUL FOR THE HONOR, BUT

ADMITTING IT WAS A LONG TIME

COMING.

MY MOTHER ALWAYS TOLD ME,

SON, BETTER LATE THAN EVER.

I DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD

EVER COME.

YOU KNOW, AS YOU GET OLDER,

YOU JUST THINK ABOUT THESE

THINGS THAT WILL NEVER

HAPPEN.

I'M ONE OF THE ONES WHO

STARTED THE MONFORD POINT

MARINES' ASSOCIATION.

WE NEVER THOUGHT WE WOULD

SEE A BLACK GENERAL, MUCH

LESS THE ONES THAT WE SEE

TODAY.

YOU HAVE TO LOOK FOR THE

LORD.

LOOK TO THE LORD AND TRUST

IN HIM.

Reporter: AS FOR

MCNAIR, HE SERVED 20 YEARS

IN THE MARINES.

IT WAS SO NICE TO GET OUT

AND COME HOME AND BE WITH

THESE LITTLE GUYS.

I HAD THREE SONS AND A

LOVELY WIFE.

AND JUST COME HOME AND

ENJOY.

AND IT'S BEEN A GREAT LIFE.

Reporter: PAVING THE

WAY FOR GENERATIONS TO FIGHT

FOR THEIR COUNTRY AND FOLLOW

IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT A

DISTINGUISHED THING.

AND WHAT A WONDERFUL THING

AS WE'RE DOING BLACK HISTORY

MONTH.

I THINK THAT IS SO GREAT.

I WASN'T AWARE OF THE

MONFORD POINT MARINES, BUT

WE WELCOME THEM TO THE

CORPS.

SEMPRA PHI, GUYS.

Kristi: I LOVE STORIES

LIKE THAT.

JOHN JESSUP, YOU DID A GREAT

JOB.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU

HAVE THE GUARANTEE FOR

SUCCESS.

AND PAT IS GOING TO GIVE IT

TO YOU STRAIGHT FROM THE

SECRET KINGDOM.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GO

AWAY.

Kristi: IF YOU ARE

EXPERIENCING CONFLICT IN

YOUR FAMILY, IN YOUR

WORKPLACE, ON EVEN IN YOUR

CHURCH, CHANCES ARE YOU'RE

BREAKING THE LAW.

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

IT IS CALLED THE LAW OF

UNITY, THAT IS.

AND HERE IS PAT TO EXPLAIN

MORE FROM THE SECRET

KINGDOM.

*

Pat: I'M GOING TO TELL

YOU NOW ABOUT THE GUARANTEED

SECRET OF SUCCESS.

GUARANTEED SECRET OF

SUCCESS.

YOU CAN LOOK BACK IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, AND YOU FIND THE

PEOPLE WERE REBELLING

AGAINST GOD, ALL THE PEOPLE,

THE WHOLE POPULOUS OF THE

EARTH.

AND THEY SAID, LET'S GET

TOGETHER AND LET'S BUILD A

TOWER THAT WILL REACH UP

INTO HEAVEN AND BASICALLY

WE'RE GOING TO CHALLENGE

GOD.

WE'RE GOING TO REACH UP INTO

HEAVEN AND CHALLENGE GOD.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

UNIFIED WORLD.

THE FIRST TIME THAT THERE

WAS A SO-CALLED NEW WORLD

ORDER.

THE PEOPLE WANTED TO HAVE A

ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT IN

REBELLION AGAINST GOD.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO

DO THAT EVER SINCE.

BUT, IN ANY EVENT, THE BIBLE

SAYS GOD CAME DOWN, TOOK A

LOOK AT WHAT THEY WERE

DOING, AND HERE IS WHAT HE

SAID.

THIS IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD

MARK DOWN IN YOUR

CONSCIOUSNESS.

"THIS PEOPLE HAS ONE MIND,

AND THEY SPEAK ONE LANGUAGE."

NOW NOTHING THAT THEY

PROPOSE TO DO WILL BE

IMPOSSIBLE FOR THAT.

GOT THAT?

"NOTHING THEY PROPOSE TO DO

WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR

THEM."

IF YOU HAVE ONE MIND AND YOU

SPEAK ONE LANGUAGE, NOTHING

IS IMPOSSIBLE.

NOW, THAT WAS GOD'S

APPRAISAL AT REBELLIOUS

MANKIND.

IF THAT WAS WHAT HE SAID

ABOUT REBELLION, THINK OF

WHAT HE WOULD SAY ABOUT

THOSE WHO ARE UNITED TO

SERVE HIM.

THEY HAVE ONE MIND.

NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE.

NOW, I HAVE FOUND HERE AT

CBN WHEN -- AND WE DON'T

HAVE THIS TOO OFTEN, BUT IN

DAYS GONE BY, WE HAD GROUPS

THAT THOUGHT WE WERE DOING

THINGS WRONG AND WE OUGHT TO

DO IT ANOTHER WAY.

WHENEVER WE HAD DISSENTION,

MONEY STOPPED COMING IN.

MONEY STOPPED COMING IN.

IT JUST CUT OFF OUR FLOW OF

FUNDS.

BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE

UNITY.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU A STORY,

AND IT'S A WONDERFUL STORY.

REGENT UNIVERSITY WAS

BIRTHED BY CBN.

AND WHEN WE HAD GAINED ABOUT

350 STUDENTS, IT WAS

PAINFULLY OBVIOUS THAT THE

QUARTERS WE HAD FOR THE

UNIVERSITY WERE TOO SMALL.

WE HAD TO HAVE A LIBRARY,

AND WE HAD TO HAVE

ADDITIONAL CLASSROOMS OR WE

WERE GOING TO BE CHOKED.

SO I GOT THE ARCHITECT

TOGETHER AND GOT SOME PEOPLE

TOGETHER, AND WE LAID OUT

THE PLAN OF A BEAUTIFUL

LIBRARY CLASSROOM BUILDING.

AT THAT TIME, CBN WAS

HURTING FINANCIALLY.

WE HAD BILLS WE HADN'T

PAID.

WE HAD -- THE FUTURE DIDN'T

LOOK TOO BRIGHT.

AND WE HAD HIRED A CHIEF

FINANCIAL OFFICER FROM A

BANK IN NEW YORK.

THAT'S DANGEROUS IN ITSELF.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: AND HE HAD GROWN

UP IN VERY PRACTICAL TERMS,

WITH BANKING MENTALITY, THAT

YOU HAD TO HAVE SO MUCH

MONEY BEFORE YOU DID THIS,

THAT, AND THE OTHER.

I HAD COME ALONG NOT HAVING

ANYTHING AND BELIEVED GOD,

AND THOUGHT YOU HAD TO MOVE

ON FAITH AND THE LORD WOULD

SUPPLY.

SO IN ANY EVENT, THIS

GENTLEMAN WENT AROUND TO THE

MEMBERS OF OUR STAFF THAT

PAT IS CRAZY.

HE SAID IT IN A NICE WAY,

I'M SURE.

HE SAID, IF WE KEEP THIS UP,

WE'RE GOING BANKRUPT.

I KNEW ABOUT THIS.

SO I CALLED ALL OF THE STAFF

TOGETHER AND WE HAD A BIG

MEETING.

I SAID, HERE IS THE DEAL:

WE'VE GOT THIS UNIVERSITY,

AND THEY'VE GOT TO HAVE THIS

LIBRARY AND CLASSROOM

BUILDING, OR THE UNIVERSITY

IS GOING TO DIE.

IT CAN'T GROW.

AND I THINK IT'S GOD'S WILL

TO HAVE THIS UNIVERSITY.

WE BUILT IT FOR HIS GLORY.

AND I SAID, HERE IS WHAT I

WANT YOU TO DO: I WANT YOU

TO LE REFRAME FROM GOING

BEHIND MY BACK AND BAD

MOUTHING ME IN THE

CORRIDORS.

I SAID I DON'T ASK YOU FOR

ANY MONEY.

I DON'T ASK YOU FOR ANY

WORK.

ALL I ASK YOU TO DO IS KEEP

YOUR MOUTH SHUT.

BECAUSE IF WE AGREE, EVEN

THOUGH IT IS NOT OF GOD, WE

WILL SUCCEED.

BUT EVEN IF IT IS OF GOD AND

WE DISAGREE, THE VENTURE

WILL FAIL.

I SAID, THAT'S ALL I'M

ASKING YOU TO DO, JUST

REFRAIN FROM NEG TIST.

NENEGATIVE.

THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE

UNIVERSITY HAD ALREADY BEEN

IN AGREEMENT.

WE HAD JOINED OUR HANDS

TOGETHER AND PRAYED AND

AGREED TOGETHER.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED.

IT WAS A $12 MILLION

PROJECT.

WE DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY

GOING IN, BUT WE STARTED

BUILDING.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY OF

YOU DO THAT.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: LIKE THEY SAY,

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME.

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME.

BUT, ANYHOW, THE FIRST MONTH

WE NEEDED A MILLION

DOLLARS.

A MILLION DOLLARS EXTRA CAME

IN.

THE SECOND MONTH WE NEEDED A

MILLION DOLLARS EXTRA, AND A

MILLION DOLLARS CAME.

IN THE THIRD MONTH, WE

NEEDED A MILLION DOLLARS

EXTRA, AND A MILLION DOLLARS

EXTRA CAME IN.

THE FOURTH MONTH, SAME

THING.

FIFTH MONTH, SIXTH MONTH,

SEVENTH MONTH -- EVERY MONTH

AN EXTRA MILLION DOLLARS.

A BEAUTIFUL LIBRARY.

IT WAS FINISHED ON SCHEDULE

AND DEBT-FREE BECAUSE GOD

LOOKED AT THE UNITY.

THAT'S THE KEY TO SUCCESS.

IF YOU CAN GET TOGETHER,

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN'T

ACCOMPLISH.

NOW NOTHING WILL BE

IMPOSSIBLE TO THEM.

THAT'S WHAT GOD ALMIGHTY

SAID, OF UNITY.

IF YOU HAVE NO UNITY --

THAT'S WHY THE DEVIL IS

ALWAYS TRYING TO CAUSE

CHURCH RIST RIFTS AND

CHURCH SPLITS, BECAUSE WHEN

HE CAN TAKE AWAY OUR UNITY,

HE CAN DESTROY OUR

EFFECTIVENESS.

THIS IS TRUE WHETHER IT IS

IN A BIG ORGANIZATION OR

WHETHER IT IS IN A

HOUSEHOLD.

JESUS SAID, A HOUSE DIVIDED

AGAINST ITSELF CANNOT

STAND.

THAT'S THE FLIP SIDE OF

GETTING IT DONE.

A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST

ITSELF CAN'T STAND.

HUSBAND AND WIFE ARE

FIGHTING, IT CAN'T STAND.

PEOPLE HAVING A DIVORCE,

THEY GET TO DIVORCE COURT,

IT CAN'T STAND.

THEY GO BROKE.

THE LARGEST SEGMENT OF THE

POOR ARE SINGLE WOMEN WITH

CHILDREN.

THOSE HAVE BEEN THE VICTIMS

OF DIVORCE.

INSTEAD OF COMING TOGETHER

IN A FAMILY WHERE THEY CAN

COMBINE THEIR SKILLS AND

RESOURCES, THEY FIGHT, TEAR

EACH OTHER APART, TEAR THE

FAMILY APART, AND THEN BOTH

OF THEM SUFFER.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

THAT'S WHY GOD SAYS I HATE

DIVORCE.

A HOUSE DIVIDED CAN'T

STAND.

AND A COUNTRY DIVIDED CAN'T

STAND.

THAT'S WHY WHAT IS HAPPENING

IN AMERICA IS TEARING THIS

NATION APART.

THIS EXTREME PARTISANSHIP,

WHERE THE ULTRA LEFT AND THE

ULTRA RIGHT WILL NOT TALK TO

EACH OTHER, AND THEY FIGHT

EACH OTHER, AND ALL THEY TRY

TO DO IS GET ADVANTAGE OVER

ONE ANOTHER, AND WE'RE NOT

TOGETHER AS A NATION.

IT USED TO BE AT LEAST WE

AGREED AT THE WATER'S EDGE,

BUT NOW WE DON'T AGREE WITH

ANYTHING.

BUT THIS CONSTANT FIGHTING,

AND THESE SO-CALLED

BLOGGERS, ALWAYS TEARING UP

THE FABRIC OF HARMONY IN OUR

LAND.

UNLESS WE HAVE THAT, THIS

NATION WILL NOT BE ABLE TO

STAND.

BUT GOD SAYS THEY HAVE ONE

MIND, AND THEY SPEAK ONE

VOICE.

NOW NOTHING WILL BE

IMPOSSIBLE TO THEM.

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE SUCCESS,

REAL SUCCESS, GET TOGETHER

WITH PEOPLE WHO AGREE WITH

AND LET THE LORD SHOW YOU

WHAT TO DO.

DON'T TRY TO PULL TOGETHER A

DESPERATE GROUP OF PEOPLE

WHO ARE GOING TO BE FIGHTING

AND THINK YOU'LL ACCOMPLISH

ANYTHING.

THAT'S WHY SO MUCH OF THIS

SO-CALLED DIVERSITY THAT IS

GOING ON, YOU HAVE TO HAVE

THIS GROUP AND THAT GROUP

AND EVERYBODY IN THERE, AND

THEY'RE ALL IN THERE

FIGHTING.

YOU NEED COHESION IF YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE SUCCESS.

THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT IS.

IF YOU HAVE HARMONY, ALL

KINDS OF GOOD THINGS

HAPPEN.

IF YOU HAVE DISHARMONY, YOU

ACCOMPLISH NOTHING.

THAT'S THE LAW OF UNITY

ACCORDING TO THE SECRET

KINGDOM.

[APPLAUSE]

Kristi: FANTASTIC.

I WAS SITTING HERE THINKING,

MAN, I SHOULD BE TAKING

NOTES ON THAT, RIGHT?

HOW GOOD WAS THAT.

LISTEN, WE'RE TEACHING AND

FEATURING ALL OF THE

TEACHINGS FROM THE SECRET

KINGDOM ALL THROUGHOUT THIS

WEEK.

IF YOU'VE MISSED ANY OF IT,

OR YOU WANT YOUR FAMILY OR

FRIENDS OR WHOEVER TO CHECK

IT OUT, GO TO OUR WEBSITE

AT cbn.com, AND JUST CLICK

ON "I SAW IT ON "THE 700

CLUB" LINK," AND THEN YOU

CAN WATCH IT.

PAT, ONE OF YOUR BEST

BOOKS -- YOU'VE WRITTEN

DOZENS OF BOOKS, BUT ONE OF

YOUR BEST BOOKS IS "THE

SECRET KINGDOM."

Pat: IT IS THE NUMBER

ONE BOOK.

IT WAS A REVELATION FROM THE

LORD.

IT IS IN THE BIBLE, BUT I

DIDN'T SEE IT UNTIL ALL OF A

SUDDEN HE OPENED MY EYES TO

UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS THERE.

Kristi: THE THING THAT

IS SO COOL, WHEN YOU THINK

ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD, IT IS

NOT AS COMPLICATED THAT WE

MAKE IT OUT.

LIKE THE LAW OF UNITY, JUST

ALL BE ON ONE ACCORD AND IT

IS REAL SIMPLE.

Pat: THESE LAWS ARE

THERE, JUST LIKE THE LAW OF

GRAVITY, AND THEY WORK FOR

US.

WE HAVE SOME QUESTION.

Kristi: KEN SAYS, "I

HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE

LAW OF UNITY.

I UNDERSTAND THAT WE HAVE TO

BE TOGETHER, BUT IN MY

OFFICE THERE IS SOMEONE WHO

IS POISONING THE CLIMATE.

SHE IS CONSTANTLY NEGATIVE,

MANIPULATIVE, AND SPREADS

MALICIOUS RUMORS ABOUT

PEOPLE.

SHE HAS CURRIED FAVOR WITH

HER MANAGERS BECAUSE SHE

DOES BRING IN SOME MONEY FOR

THE COMPANY.

AND I WANT TO ADHERE TO THE

LAW OF UNITY.

HOW DO I APPROACH THIS

SITUATION?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

DRIVE OUT A SCOFFER AND

STRIFE WILL CEASE.

YOU ARE NOT IN THE POSITION

TO DRIVE OUT ANYBODY, BUT I

DO BELIEVE YOU OWE IT TO

YOUR COMPANY TO GO TO THE

BOSSES, OR THE BOSS, AND SAY

I'VE GOT A PROBLEM.

I WANT THIS COMPANY TO

SUCCEED, BUT WE DON'T HAVE

UNITY IN THE RANKS.

AND BECAUSE THIS PERSON IS

VERY DI DIVISIVE, I WANT TO

BRING IT TO YOUR ATTENTION.

CAN YOU HELP ME BECAUSE I

WANT US ALL TO SUCCEED

TOGETHER.

IF THAT PERSON REJECTS YOU,

THE COMPANY IS GOING TO

SUFFER FOR IT.

SOONER OR LATER IT WILL

SUFFER.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE UNITY, IT

WON'T SUCCEED.

THE TIME MAY COME FOR YOU TO

SAY, WELL, IT IS TIME FOR ME

TO JUMP SHIP.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER YOU'RE

AT THAT POINT YET.

BUT I DO THINK A FRANK

DISCUSSION -- MAYBE -- MAYBE

THIS WOMAN DOESN'T REALIZE

WHAT SHE IS DOING.

MAYBE THIS WOMAN BY NATURE

IS NEGATIVE.

I HATE TO BE AROUND PEOPLE

WHO ARE NEGATIVE.

IT IS CORROSIVE, LIKE ACID.

Kristi: I'M WITH YOU.

NUMBER TWO, DEAN SAYS, "IN

THE LAW OF UNITY, YOU QUOTE

JESUS AS SAYING IF TWO OF

YOU AGREE ON ANYTHING, THEY

SHALL ASK AND IT SHALL BE

DONE.

RECENTLY THERE WAS A MAN IN

OUR CHURCH WHO WAS SICK AND

WE ALL PRAYED FOR HIM, BUT

HE DIDN'T GET BETTER.

HOW CAN THIS BE?

WE WERE ALL IN AGREEMENT?"

Pat: IF YOU LOOK AT THE

BIBLE, AND YOU LOOK AT

PETER, AND THE CHURCH PRAYED

FOR HIM, AND, GUESS WHAT,

GOD SENT AN ANGEL, AND PETER

CAME OUT OF JAIL AND WAS

KNOCKING AT THE DOOR.

AND IT WAS AMAZING.

THEY PRAYED.

YOU SAY YOUR CHURCH PRAYED.

BUT DID THEY SAY OH, GOD

HEAL OLD CHARLIE, AND GO ON

THEIR BUSINESS.

OR WERE THEY REALLY INTO IT

AND WERE THEIR HEARTS REALLY

COMMIKNIT TOGETHER.

I DON'T KNOW THE INTENSITY

TOGETHER.

BUT I KNOW THAT PEOPLE IN

UNITY, IF THEY PRAY

STRETCHED OUTEDLY, THEY WILL

HEAL.

Kristi: "I WORRY MY

HUSBAND IS VIOLATING THAT

BECAUSE HE IS WATCHING A LOT

OF 24-HOUR CABLE.

I TELL HIM HE SHOULD NOT BE

CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD AND

HE SHOULD WATCH SOMETHING

MORE UPLIFTING.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

THIS IS CAUSING A RIFT IN

OUR MARRIAGE."

Pat: I THINK YOU

MISREAD THAT.

CONFORMITY -- IT'S DON'T BE

CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD.

THE WORLD THAT IS OUT THERE,

WHICH MEANS IT IS SEXUAL AND

MATERIALISTIC.

MERELY BEING INFORMED IS

DIFFERENT.

I BELIEVE YOU CAN GET

OBSESSED ON THOSE THINGS.

AFTER A WHILE, IT DRIVES YOU

CRAZY.

THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH OF

O'REILLY AND HANATY AND

THOSE OTHER PEOPLE THAT YOU

CAN TAKE BEFORE YOU SAY, I

HAVE TO HAVE A BREAK.

IT IS NOT THAT THEY ARE NOT

NICE PEOPLE, BUT THERE IS

JUST SO MUCH.

I THINK AFTER A WHILE, HE

NEEDS A BREAK IN HIS MIND.

BUT HE ISN'T GOING TO HELL

ON ACCOUNT OF WATCHING FOX

NEWS OR MSNBC OR ANY OF

THESE OTHER THINGS.

THAT IS NOT THE SAME THING

AS BEING CONFORMED TO THE

WORLD.

BEING CONFORMED IS YOU'RE

OUT WITH A BUNCH OF

DRINKERS, AND YOU DRINK WITH

THEM.

THAT IS NOT WHAT HE IS

DOING.

HE JUST WANTS TO BE

INFORMED.

THAT IS DIFFERENT.

Kristi: ETHEL SAYS, "IS

THERE A SCRIPTURE THAT TELLS

US EACH OF US HAVE AN ANGEL

ASSIGNED TO US?"

Pat: NO, IT IS NOT.

WE MISUNDERSTOOD THAT.

IT SAYS THEY HAVE BEEN SENT

TO TAKE CARE OF THE HEIRS OF

SALVATION.

IT DOESN'T SAY EACH ONE OF

US HAS A GUARDIAN ANGEL.

THAT IS A LATER ACCRETION OR

WHATEVER.

IT WOULD BE NICE TO THINK WE

HAVE ONE, BUT THE BIBLE

DOESN'T TELL US THAT.

Kristi: I BELIEVE I

HAVE A WHOLE BAND OF ANGELS

AROUND ME.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS TRUE.

Pat: PEOPLE HERE HAVE

SEEN THEM.

WE ASKED GOD TO SEND THE

ANGELS, AND I BELIEVE THAT

ANGELIC MESSENGERS ARE THERE

TO LOOK AFTER THE HEIRS OF

SALVATION.

BUT IT DOESN'T SAY EACH ONE

OF US HAS OUR OWN ANGEL.

Kristi: I THINK THERE

IS TIME FOR ONE LAST

QUESTION.

SHE SAYS, "THE BOOK OF

MATTHEW TELLS US TO SEEK THE

KINGDOM OF GOD FIRST.

I DESIRE TO DO THAT, BUT HOW

DO I SPECIFICALLY DO THAT IN

ALL OF THE AREAS OF MY

LIFE?"

Pat: JESUS SAID THAT IN

THE CONTEXT OF WHAT DON'T BE

CONCERNED WHAT YOU SHOULD

EAT, WHAT YOU SHOULD WEAR,

OR WHERE YOU SHOULD LIVE.

THIS IS THE THING THAT THE

GENTILES SEEK, BUT FOR YOU,

YOU SEEK THE KINGDOM.

WHICH MEANS PUT THE EMPHASIS

OF YOUR LIFE IN SEEKING THE

KINGDOM OF GOD, AND ALL OF

THIS MATERIAL STUFF WILL BE

ADDED TO YOU.

BUT IT DOESN'T SAY IN

EVERYTHING ASPECT OF YOUR

LIFE BE SEEKING.

JESUS SAID LOVE THE LORD

YOUR GOD WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, YOUR SOUL, AND YOUR

MIND.

THAT IS LOVING GOD.

BUT SEEKING THE LORD HAS TO

DO WITH THE FOCUS OF YOUR

ATTENTION.

WHAT HE SAYS IS DON'T FOCUS

ON MATERIAL POSSESSIONS AND

WHAT IT TAKES TO KEEP LIFE

GOING.

BUT FOCUS ON GOD.

AND HE'LL GIVE YOU THESE

OTHER THINGS.

THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS.

Kristi: BEAUTIFUL.

GOOD DEAL.

FANTASTIC.

Pat: THANK YOU, THANK

YOU, THANK YOU.

Kristi: IF YOU HAVE

MORE QUESTIONS FOR PAT ABOUT

THE LAW OF UNITY, REMEMBER

YOU CAN ALWAYS LOG ON TO

cbn.com, AND PLACE YOUR

QUESTIONS THERE, AND PAT

WOULD LOVE TO ANSWER THEM.

YOU MAY HAVE HEARD PEOPLE

GET UP IN ARMS ABOUT

DRILLING FOR OIL.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

GO TO A PLACE WHERE DRILLING

FOR WATER IS AGAINST THE

LAW.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU

WHY, AND HOW THE PEOPLE

THERE FINALLY GOT SOMETHING

CLEAN TO DRINK.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

A GROUP OF MORE THAN 80

REPUBLICANS WILL FILE A

BRIEF WITH THE U.S. SUPREME

COURT IN FAVOR OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

THE GROUP INCLUDES MEMBERS

OF THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES, FOUR FORMER

GOVERNORS, AND THE DAUGHTER

OF FORMER VICE PRESIDENT

DICK CHENEY.

THE HIGH COURT WILL HEAR

CASES INVOLVING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE NEXT MONTH.

YOU HEARD PAT AND KRISTI

TALKING ABOUT THE LAW OF

UNITY, HERE IS A STORY

RELATED TO THAT.

THE VIRGINIA LEGISLATURE HAS

PASSED A LAW GIVING COLLEGES

THE RIGHT WHO SHARE A

MISSION.

IVANDERBILT UNIVERSITY

CREATED AN UPROAR WITH AN

ALL COMER'S POLICY.

VIRGINIA LEGISLATORS SAY

THEY WANT TO KEEP THAT FROM

HAPPENING HERE IN VIRGINIA.

THE BILL AWAITS GOVERNOR BOB

McDONALD'S SIGNATURE.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND KRISTI

WILL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

Kristi: IN PARTS OF

INDIA, WATER POLLUTION IS

RAMPID, AND WATER PURIFYERS

ARE EXPENSIVE.

FOR ONE FAMILY, THAT MEANT

CHOOSING BETWEEN CLEAN WATER

OR FOOD FOR THEIR CHILDREN.

Reporter: RAMNAGAR,

INDIA, IS THE SECOND LARGEST

INDUSTRIAL SLUM IN ALL OF

ASIA.

THE DRINKING WATER IS

CONTAMINATED WITH TOXIC

WASTE AND SEWAGE.

8-YEAR-OLD SHAVANI AND HER

FAMILY OFTEN GOT SICK FROM

THE DIRTY WATER.

WHEN I DRANK THE WATER, I

WOULD GET HEADACHES AND I

HAD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM

MANY TIMES.

WE HAD TO WALK FOR MANY

HOURS TO FIND GOOD WATER TO

DRINK.

OUR CHILDREN OFTEN WENT

HUNGRY FOR DAYS WHEN WE

DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH CLEAN

WATER TO COOK OUR FOOD.

Reporter: SHAVANI

DREAMS OF BECOMING A DOCTOR,

BUT SHE AND MANY OTHER

CHILDREN HERE OFTEN MISS

SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY WERE

ALWAYS SICK.

CBN WANTED TO DRILL THEM A

WELL, BUT THAT WAS ILLEGAL

BECAUSE OF THE LOW WATER

LEVELS.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY WAY TO

PURIFY OUR WATER.

WE HARDLY MAKE ENOUGH MONEY

TO SURVIVE.

SHOULD WE BUY FOOD FOR OUR

CHILDREN OR A WATER

PURIFYER?

Reporter: BUT SHAVANI

AND HALF THE FAMILIES HERE

WON'T HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN

FOOD AND CLEAN WATER BECAUSE

CBN GAVE THEM WATER

PURIFYERS.

AND WITH YOUR HELP,

PURIFYERS FOR THE REST OF

THE FAMILIES WILL BE ON

THEIR WAY SOON.

THE FILTERS IN EACH UNIT

WILL CLEAN 800 GALLONS OF

WATER.

THAT'S ENOUGH FOR A FAMILY

OF FOUR TO LIVE ON FOR A

YEAR.

AND WHEN THE FILTERS NEED TO

BE REPLACED, IT ONLY COSTS

$5.

NOW, SHAVANI AND MANY OTHER

KIDS WON'T GET SICK FROM THE

WATER AND CAN GO BACK TO

SCHOOL.

NOW I CAN DRINK CLEAN

WATER.

I CAN STAY IN SCHOOL AND

MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE.

THANK YOU, CBN.

Kristi: IT IS SO

AMAZING HOW SOMETHING SO

LITTLE CAN BE SO BIG AND

A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN A

FAMILY, IN A NATION, IN

FACT.

Pat: GOOD.

ISN'T THAT EXCITING WHAT

WE'RE DOING IN INDIA.

THE SUFFERING AROUND THE

WORLD -- THERE ARE SO MANY

PEOPLE SUFFERING.

IF WE CAN HELP A FEW OF

THEM, AS MANY AS WE CAN,

WE'LL DO IT.

A FEW YEARS AGO LEGENDARY

GOSPEL ARTIST TIMOTHY WRIGHT

WAS KILLED BY A DRUNK

DRIVER.

SHORTLY BEFORE HE DIED, HE

MADE ONE LAST REQUEST OF HIS

SON.

YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR HIS

LAST WISHES COMING UP NEXT.

Pat: DERRICK WRIGHT, HE

WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE HIS

DAD.

BUT AS HIS DAD LAID DYING IN

HIS BED, HE ASKED DERRICK

FOR SOMETHING THAT DERRICK

JUST COULDN'T DO.

Reporter: DERRICK

WRIGHT DOESN'T JUST PLAY THE

DRUMS FOR A LIVING.

IT'S IN HIS D.N.A.

AS THE SON OF THE LATE

REVEREND TIMOTHY WRIGHT, WHO

IS KNOWN TO MANY AS THE

GODFATHER OF GOSPEL MUSIC,

DERRICK WAS DESTINED TO BE A

MUSICIAN.

*

Reporter: HE WAS ONLY

12 WHEN HE MADE HIS DRUMMING

DEBUT PLAYING IN HIS

FATHER'S BAND.

THEY WASN'T EXPECTING

THAT FROM A 12-YEAR-OLD

KID.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, HE HONED HIS CRAFT

AND BECAME AN A-LIST DRUMMER

FOR ARTISTS LIKE TONI

BRAXTON, ALICIA KEYS AND

OTHERS.

AND HE LANDED A JOB FOR THE

FAMOUS ARTIST ADELE.

STILL, DERRICK DOESN'T ALLOW

HIMSELF TO GET CAUGHT UP IN

THE TRAPPINGS OF SHOW

BUSINESS.

INSTEAD, HE SAYS DRUMMING IS

A WAY TO CONNECT WITH GOD.

I CAN SIT ON THE DRUMS

AND ALMOST LIKE WHEN YOU GO

IN YOUR PRAYER CLOSET AND

YOU KNOW THAT'S YOUR PLACE

OF COMFORT.

AND YOU CAN JUST, LIKE, GO

TO GOD IN PRAYER.

SOMETIMES I SIT THERE ON THE

DRUMS AND PUT MY HEAD DOWN

AND JUST PRAY BEFORE I EVEN

PLAY.

IT'S JUST A GOOD FEELING

THAT YOU GET.

YOU FEEL LIKE GOD HAS GOT

YOUR BACK.

Reporter: HIS FAMILY

LIFE IS CENTERED ON GOD,

TOO.

HE MARRIED HIS HIGH SCHOOL

SWEETHEART, MICHELLE.

THEY HAVE TWO KIDS WITH ONE

ON THE WAY.

SHE IS NOT WITH ME

BECAUSE OF THE GLITZ AND

GLAMOUR.

SHE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT

THAT.

SOMETIMES SHE LET'S ME KNOW

SHE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT

THAT.

SHE REALLY HAS MY BACK.

AND SOMETIMES SHE PRAYS WITH

ME, JUST COVERING ME, TOO.

I LOVE HER FOR THAT.

Reporter: DERRICK SAYS

MOST OF HIS LIFE WENT PRETTY

SMOOTHLY UNTIL JULY 4th,

2008.

HIS BROTHER CALLED HIM AND

TOLD HIM THEIR FATHER,

MOTHER, AND 14-YEAR-OLD

NEPHEW HAD BEEN HIT BY A

DRUNK DRIVER.

HE ALSO TOLD HIM THERE

MOTHER HAD DIED AT THE

SCENE.

THE NEXT THING I KNOW

I'M, LIKE, SPEEDING DOWN THE

HIGHWAY, TRYING TO GET THERE

AND SEE IF THIS IS TRUE

BECAUSE I'M NOT BELIEVING

IT.

MY WIFE JUST GRABBED MY HAND

AND STARTS PRAYING WITH ME.

Reporter: HIS NEPHEW

DIED A DAY LATER, AND HIS

FATHER WAS IN CRITICAL

CONDITION.

DERRICK STARTED TO BURN WITH

ANGER.

I WAS, LIKE, HOW CAN GOD

DO THIS TO US.

MY LITTLE NEPHEW WAS 14

YEARS OLD.

HOW COULD IT HAPPEN?

Reporter: HE SAT AT HIS

FATHER'S BEDSIDE FOR MONTHS,

AND LISTENED TO HIM SING.

AND HIS DAD ALSO TALKED

ABOUT FORGIVING THE PERSON

RESPONSIBLE.

BUT DERRICK COULDN'T

UNDERSTAND WHY HIS FATHER

COULD FORGIVE SOMEONE WHO

KILLED HIS FAMILY.

THE FORGIVENESS -- I WAS

LIKE, YOU'RE SITTING ON YOUR

DEATH BED RIGHT NOW AND YOU

FORGAVE THE PERSON THAT DID

THIS.

Reporter: DERRICK

STARTED HAVING LONG TALKS

WITH GOD.

HE OFTEN THOUGHT ABOUT HIS

FATHER'S EXAMPLE OF

FORGIVENESS.

JUST SEEING HOW HE COULD

BE IN THIS SITUATION AND HE

STILL FORGAVE.

I WAS, LIKE, WOW, THAT'S THE

MAN I WANT TO BE LIKE.

I WANT TO BE ABLE TO LOVE

AND FORGIVE JUST LIKE THIS

MAN RIGHT HERE, LIKE MY

FATHER.

Reporter: IN TIME,

DERRICK WAS ABLE TO FOLLOW

HIS FATHER'S EXAMPLE.

I HONESTLY CAN SAY THAT I

FORGIVE THE GUY, THE YOUNG

MAN THAT WAS DRIVING DRUNK

ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE

ROAD.

I FORGIVE HIM.

Reporter: SEVEN MONTHS

LATER, HIS FATHER PASSED

AWAY.

BY THEN DERRICK HAD MADE

THIS PEACE WITH GOD.

GOD WAS DOING IT FOR ME,

I FELT LIKE, SO HE COULD

TURN CERTAIN THINGS AROUND

IN MY LIFE.

*

* HE HAS OVERCOME

Reporter: NOW DERRICK

WAS MORE FOCUSED ON SHARING

GOD'S LOVE WITH OTHERS AND

DECIDED TO PRODUCE A GOSPEL

ALBUM THAT WOULD DO JUST

THAT.

THE ALBUM IS CALLED

"DRIVEN."

IT SEEMED LIKE I HAD TO

PUSH TO DO IT, AND I CALLED

IT "DRIVEN," BECAUSE IT WAS

SOMETHING THAT WAS DRIVING

ME TO DO IT.

Reporter: DERRICK ALSO

CONTINUES HIS FATHER'S MUSIC

LEGACY IN NEW YORK.

HE WORKS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE

AT A CHURCH IN BROOKLYN,

WHERE HE ENCOURAGES THEM

THROUGH MUSIC.

AND ACROSS TOWN, HE DIRECTS

A 300-BOYS CHOIR AT HIS

FATHER'S FORMER CHURCH.

MY GOAL IS NOT TO BE A

HOUSEHOLD NAME FOR ME, BUT

THAT EVERYBODY CAN KNOW GOD,

AND JUST SHOW THEM THAT GOD

IS GOOD, AND GOD CAN, LIKE,

SAVE.

AND HE CAN FORGIVE.

AND HE CAN MAKE YOU FORGIVE

ANYTHING THAT YOU WENT

THROUGH.

JESUS IS THE ANSWER, AND HE

ALWAYS WAS, AND HE ALWAYS

WILL BE.

Pat: TREMENDOUS

TESTIMONY.

YOU KNOW, IT'S HARD TO

FORGIVE.

AND HERE IS WHAT JESUS SAID,

AND IT'S SO IMPORTANT.

HE WAS ASKED BY HIS

DISCIPLES TO TELL THEM ABOUT

THE SECRET OF HAVING

MIRACLES, HOW DO YOU GET

THEM.

AND SO HE WENT THROUGH

SOMETHING, THAT YOU FIND IN

THE 13th CHAPTER OF MARK'S

GOSPEL, AND WHEN HE FINISHED

TELLING THEM THE PRINCIPLES,

HE THEN CLOSED WITH THIS

WORD: "AND WHEN YOU STAND

PRAYING, IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE THAT

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER MIGHT

FORGIVE YOU."

YOU SEE, IN ORDER TO HAVE

MIRACLES, YOU NEED TO BE IN

A CONDITION OF BEING BORN

AGAIN, WHICH MEANS YOU'VE

GOT TO BE HAVING YOUR SINS

FORGIVEN.

IF NOT, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

HAVE ANSWERS TO PRAYER.

BUT IF YOU'RE IN THAT

CONDITION AND YOU COME

BEFORE THE FATHER, YOU CAN

ASK, AND WHATEVER YOU ASK IN

HIS NAME, HE'LL GIVE YOU.

BUT IF YOU HAVE IN YOUR

HEART BITTERNESS,

RESENTMENT, JEALOUSY,

HATRED, BITTERNESS, YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO GET ANYTHING

FROM GOD.

IT WILL CUT YOU OFF FROM THE

BLESSING.

YOU DON'T HURT SOMEBODY ELSE

WHEN YOU'RE MAD AT THEM.

YOU HURT YOURSELF.

YOU SAY, WELL, THEY'LL

JUST -- THEY DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

I HATE THEM.

THEY'VE DONE A TERRIBLE

THING.

WELL, THEY PROBABLY DON'T

KNOW WHAT YOU'RE FEELING AND

THEY WOULDN'T CARE IF THEY

DID.

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

BUT WHAT IT DOES IS HURT

YOU.

WHEN YOU STAND PRAYING, IF

YOU HAVE OUGHT AGAINST

ANYTHING, FORGIVE THAT YOUR

HEAVENLY FATHER MIGHT

FORGIVE YOU.

BEFORE WE FINISH THIS

PROGRAM TODAY -- WE'VE JUST

GOT A MINUTE OR SO -- I WANT

YOU TO THINK OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE HURT YOU THAT YOU STILL

HAVE RESENTMENT AGAINST, AND

I WANT YOU TO GIVE IT UP.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME

RIGHT NOW.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD

AND PRAY.

PRAY THESE WORDS.

LORD JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

PRAY WITH ME.

LORD JESUS, YOU KNOW WHAT'S

BEEN DONE TO ME.

AND YOU KNOW THE BITTERNESS

THAT HAS BEEN IN MY HEART.

AND RIGHT NOW, LORD, I WANT

YOU TO KNOW THAT I FORGIVE.

I FORGIVE -- PUT IN A NAME

THERE, WHATEVER IT IS.

I FORGIVE WHAT'S BEEN SAID.

I FORGIVE WHAT'S BEEN

WRITTEN.

I FORGIVE WHAT'S BEEN

WHISPERED.

I FORGIVE THE HURT THAT HAS

BEEN INFLICTED ON ME AND MY

FAMILY.

I FORGIVE BECAUSE YOU HAVE

FORGIVEN ME.

THANK YOU FOR HEARING MY

PRAYER.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

NOW, I HAVE A LITTLE BOOKLET

I WANT TO GIVE YOU.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME AND

YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM WITH

FORGIVENESS.

THIS IS CALLED FORGIVENESS,

KEYS TO -- LET'S SEE.

SIN PARTICULARLY BLOCKS THE

FLOW OF MIRACLE POWER.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS TALKING

ABOUT.

HERE IT IS FOR YOU.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU FREE.

JUST CALL IN.

IT'S YOURS.

IT'S ALL HERE, AND YOU CAN

WRITE DOWN SOME OF THE NOTES

AS TO WHAT IS ON YOUR

HEART.

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT FOR TODAY'S PROGRAM.

TOMORROW WE'VE GOT AN

ALLIGATOR.

THEY'RE GOING TO BRING A

COTTON-PICKING ALLIGATOR

INTO THIS THING.

I WAS TOLD NOT TO BRING A

SMALL DOG BECAUSE THE

ALLIGATORS LIKE TO EAT

DOGS.

BUT GATOR BOYS' STAR, PAUL

DARD, IS GOING TO BE HERE,

ALONG WITH HIS LIFE

ALLIGATOR.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PSALM 33:

"THE PLANS OF THE LORD STAND

FIRM FOREVER.

THE PURPOSES OF HIS HEART

THROUGH ALL GENERATIONS."

I APPRECIATE LEE AND KRISTI

BEING HERE.

AND THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE
