CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL ACTION

CONFERENCE, AMONG THEM MARCO

PAUL MADE REFERENCE AFTER THE

DRONES TO GO AFT AFTER AMERICANS.

NO ONE GETS TO DECIDE YOUR

GUILT OR INNOCENCE.

MY QUESTION TO THE PRESIDENT WAS

ABOUT MORE THAN KILLING

AMERICANS ON AMERICAN SOIL.

MY QUESTION WAS WHETHER

PRESIDENTIAL POWER HAS LIMITS.

JUST BECAUSE WE BELIEVE LIFE,

ALL LIFE, ALL HUMAN LIFE IS

WORTHY OF PROTECTION DOES NOT

MAKE YOU A CHAUVINIST.

THE PEOPLE THAT ARE CLOSE MINDED

POLITICS, LOVE TO PREACH ABOUT

CERTAINTY OF SCIENCE BUT IGNORE

AWARDS, WE WERE DOING WHAT WAS

WE HAVE ONLY GOD TO THANK.

HE SHOWS US HOW TO LOVE THE

HOPE AND THE ORPHANS OF UKRAINE

TERRY: IN A LOT OF CULTURES,

ORPHANS ARE LOOKED DOWN UPON.

YOUR OWN MOTHER AND FATHER

DIDN'T WANT YOU, WHY SHOULD I

CARE?

THIS IS A CHANGE OF HEART AND

MIND.

IT IS SPREADING AS THAT REPORT

SAID STARTED IN UKRAINE AND NOW,

EVEN IN SOME OF THE CENTRAL AND

SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES ARE

YEARS AGO CHRISTIANS WERE SAYING

WE DON'T WANT TO ADOPT.

NOT ALL OF US CAN ADOPT.

CBN.COM.

TERRY?

TERRY: UP NEXT, WE ARE

CONTINUING OUR SERIES WITH

MARRIAGE ON THE ROCK WITH A

COUPLE THAT DIDN'T HAVE A FAIRY

TALE ROMANCE.

IT WASN'T LIKE HE GOT ON HIS

KNEE.

IT WAS LIKE HEY, I AM PREGNANT.

WE HAVE TO GET MARRIED.

TERRY: SEE HOW THEY GOT

THEIR HAPPILY EVER AFTER.

THAT IS NEXT.

GORDAN: RACHEL HARDCASTLE WAS

A STAY AT MOM WITH TWO KIDS AND

HAD HELP AROUND THE HOUSE IN THE

FORM OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.

DRUGS ARE THE REASON THAT

BROUGHT JEFFREY AND RACHEL

HARDCASTLE TOGETHER IN THE SAME

PLACE.

YEARS LATER THE SAME DRUGS TORE

THEM APART.

BY THE TIME I STARTED HIGH

SCHOOL, I HAD DONE EVERY KIND OF

DRUG YOU COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE.

I INTRODUCED HER INTO THAT LIFE

STYLE.

FOR TWO YEARS WE GOT ON A

BINGE.

I WAS PREGNANT.

IT WASN'T LIKE HE GOT DOWN ON

HIS KNEE AND ASKED ME TO MARRY

HIM.

IT WAS LIKE HEY, I AM PREGNANT.

WE HAVE TO GET MARRIED.

IT WAS HARD BECAUSE I WAS LIKE

REALLY?

THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANTED FOR MY

LIFE.

I HAD A TENDENCY TO BLAME HIM.

I WAS VERY DEPRESSED ESPECIALLY

AFTER OUR SON WAS BORN.

AFTER OUR SON WAS BORN WE HAD

OUR LITTLE GIRL.

I STAYED AT HOME BEHIND

CLOSED DOORS, TAKING

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AT THE SAME

TIME.

IT WAS NOT ANY TYPE OF

MARRIAGE YOU WOULD WANT OR WANT

YOUR KIDS TO SEE.

DIDN'T KNOW SHE

WAS ON THE PAIN PILLS THE WAY

SHE WAS.

I WAS SCREAMING, YELLING,

MAD, IRRITATED ALL THE TIME

BECAUSE MY DEPRESSION AND I WAS

CONSTANTLY LOOKING ELSEWHERE FOR

MY HAPPINESS.

I BEGAN TO HAVE AN AFFAIR WITH

ONE OF OUR FRIENDS, PHYSICAL,

EMOTIONAL AFFAIR THAT BROUGHT ME

WHAT I THOUGHT I WAS LOOKING

FOR.

IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I KNEW

SOMETHING ELSE WAS GOING ON.

AT THE TIME I BEGAN TO HAVE WHAT

YOU WOULD CALL AN EMOTIONAL

AFFAIR WITH ANOTHER WOMAN AT A

JOB.

SHE WOULD DO HER THING AND I

WOULD DO MY THING AND COME HOME

AND SLEPT UNDER THE SAME ROOF.

SHE THREATENED TO LEAVE AND

DIVORCE COUPLE OF TIMES.

WHEN YOU SEE THE PAPERS, IT WAS

REALLY HARD.

I DIDN'T CARE.

I DIDN'T CARE IF I LIVED OR

DIED.

I STARTED SNORTING OXY COTTON,

STARTED DOING COKE AND SIGNED

OVER CUSTODY AND LEFT THE

LAWYER'S OFFICE AND GOT HIGH.

I LOST MY JOBS, KIDS, COULDN'T

AFFORD MY APARTMENT.

I WAS LEFT WITH ABSOLUTELY

NOTHING.

I REMEMBER DAYS BEING EXTREMELY

HARD BECAUSE I COULDN'T TALK TO

THE KIDS.

I WAS IN SO MUCH PHYSICAL PAIN.

I MISSED THEM SO MUCH.

I HAD TO RELIVE EVERY BIT THAT I

HAD REDONE TO BRING ME TO THIS

POINT TO GET BETTER.

TO HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY FOR

THOSE MONTHS TO LAY EVERYTHING

DOWN BEFORE HIM TO SAY THIS IS

WHAT I BRING TO YOU IT IS A BIG

PILE OF COMPLETE AND UTTER

DESTRUCTION, I NEED YOU TO HELP

ME, SAVE ME FROM ALL THIS.

I CAN'T SAVE MYSELF.

IT WAS GOD WANTING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH ME.

ME HAVING THAT RELATIONSHIP WITH

HIM IN ORDER TO BE THE PERSON HE

CALLED ME TO BE, IT WAS EVERY

SINGLE THING THAT I NEEDED.

IT WAS JESUS THAT HE WAS THE

ONLY THING THAT COULD FIX

EVERYTHING GOING ON IN MY LIFE.

GOT TO SEE THE KIDS VERY RARELY

AT THE VERY BEGINNING BECAUSE

JEFFREY WAS OF COURSE VERY STAND

OFFISH.

I WANTED TO RUSH HOME AND

EVERYBODY TO SEE THIS GREAT

CHANGE.

ULTIMATELY IT HAD TO BE A GOD

THING HE HAD TO CHANGE THEIR

HEARTS TO SEE ME AS A DIFFERENT

PERSON.

I STARTED GOING BACK TO

CHURCH WITH MY PARENTS.

THE MORE WE WENT AND THE MORE I

STARTED PRAYING, I ASKED FOR

FORGIVENESS FOR THE THINGS I HAD

DONE AND DURING THAT TIME, GOD

OPENED MY EYES AND SHOWED ME

CHRIST DIED FOR ME.

HOW AM I STILL GOING TO BE

BITTER TOWARDS HER?

I STARTED SEEING THE WAY THE

KIDS WERE WITH HER AND HOW SHE

AS WITH THE KIDS AND STARTED

PICTURING, I GUESS OUR FAMILY

BACK KOTH.

ME AND MY SISTER AND MOM WERE

HAVING DINNER AT THE CHEESECAKE

FACTORY FOR MOTHER'S DAY.

I DIDN'T HAVE CUSTODY BUT I WAS

GOING TO CELEBRATE THE MOTHER I

WAS GOING TO BE.

I REMEMBER LOOKING AROUND THE

CORNER AND SAW JEFFREY AND THE

KIDS.

THEY WALKED OVER AND JEFFREY GOT

DOWN ON BENDED KNEE AND HE WAS

LIKE, I KNOW THAT THERE HAS BEEN

SO MUCH WE HAVE SAID AND DONE TO

EACH OTHER, THERE HAS BEEN SO

MANY DIFFERENT THINGS WE HAVE

DONE TO HURT EACH OTHER.

I FORGIVE YOU, WE WERE WONDERING

IF YOU WOULD MARRY US AGAIN.

THINKING TO MYSELF THIS IS

JESUS.

THIS IS WHAT JESUS DOES.

OUR MARRIAGE NOW COMPARED TO

WHAT IT WAS BEFORE IS LIKE NIGHT

AND DAY.

IT WASN'T OVERNIGHT.

IT TOOK A LONG TIME.

TO KNOW THAT HE CAN RESTORE

ANYTHING AND WE TRY OUR BEST TO

PUT HIM FIRST AND SO IT IS

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

IF YOU FEEL HOPELESS IN YOUR

MARRIAGE, GET ON YOUR KNEES AND

SEEK THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN SAVE

A SITUATION LIKE THIS.

HE WANTS TO SEE MARRIAGES

RESTORED.

HE IS JESUS.

HE IS IN THE POWER OF

RESTORATION.

ALWAYS HOPE BECAUSE HE IS JESUS

AND HE IS THE ANSWER.

GORDAN: HE IS THE ANSWER TO

EVERY HUMAN NEED.

HE IS THE ANSWER FOR YOU.

WE WERE ORIGINALLY CREATED TO BE

WITH GOD IN A GARDEN WHERE HE

WOULD COME DOWN IN THE COOL OF

THE EVENING AND TALK WITH US.

HE WANTED A RELATIONSHIP.

THAT WAS HIS DREAM, HIS PURPOSE.

IT BROUGHT HIM GREAT JOY.

HE SAID THIS IS GOOD.

WE ARE THE ONE THAT IS MESSED IT

UP.

THAT STORY OF US EATING THE

FORBIDDEN FRUIT HAS BEEN

REPLAYED IN EVERY SINGLE

GENERATION.

IN OUR GENERATION IT IS DRUGS

AND ALCOHOL, THINGS THAT GET US

INTO VERY DESTRUCTIVE LIFE

STYLES WHERE LITERALLY OUR

FAMILIES AREN'T IMPORTANT, OUR

CHILDREN AREN'T IMPORTANT.

MOST IMPORTANT THING IS CHASING

THE NEXT HIGH.

I HAVE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU.

IF YOU ARE TRAPPED IN THIS.

JESUS CAME FOR YOU.

DON'T THINK HE CAME FOR THE

GOOD.

HE CAME FOR THE SINNERS.

THAT IS YOU.

THAT IS ME.

APOSTLE PAUL PUT IT PERFECTLY.

THIS SAYING IS TRUE AND WORTHY

OF ALL ACCEPTANCE THAT JESUS

CHRIST CAME TO SAVE SINNERS OF

WHOM I AM CHIEF.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT AND

INCLUDE YOURSELF IN THAT GROUP,

THEN THERE IS A GREAT RELEASE.

YOU CAN REALLY UNDERSTAND THE

LOVE OF GOD.

THIS IS LOVE THAT WHILE WE WERE

YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.

.

BECAUSE IF WE WERE GOOD, IF WE

WERE PERFECT THERE WOULD BE NO

NEED FOR HIM TO DIE.

IT IS BECAUSE WE NEEDED IT.

THAT IS WHY JESUS CAME.

AND THAT IS WHY HE SACRIFICED

HIMSELF.

AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE

IT.

CHRISTIANITY IS NOT SOME KIND OF

SET OF RULES WHERE GOD IS OVER

US AND GOING TO THROW THUNDER

BOLTS OUR WAY IF WE DON'T DO IT

RIGHT.

IT IS LOVE, IT IS RELATIONSHIP.

IT IS THE UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD

HIMSELF HAS BECOME OUR

SALVATION.

IT IS NOT BASED ON WHAT WE DO OR

OUR WORKS, IT IS BASED TOTALLY

ON WHAT JESUS DID.

NOW, RACHEL FOUND THAT.

SHE FOUND IT IN A REHAB CENTER.

SHE SAID I WANT THAT.

I WANT THAT NEW LIFE THAT JESUS

PROMISES.

I WANT TO BE SET FREE FROM MY

ADDICTION.

I WANT TO BE CLEANSED.

I WANT TO BE MADE NEW AGAIN.

WHEN SHE DID THAT AND WHEN SHE

SURRENDERED, THAT IS WHEN THE

CHANGE HAPPENED.

THAT CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU.

IF YOU JUST LET GOD DO IT.

NOW WITH SOME PEOPLE, IT IS

INSTANTANEOUS, LITERALLY, THEY

GO TO BED ONE NIGHT AND WAKE UP

THE NEXT MORNING AND NO MORE

DESIRE AND COMPULSION, THEY WALK

FREE FROM THAT MOMENT ON.

FOR OTHERS, IT IS A LONG

PROCESS.

IT IS FULL OF STUMBLES.

TAKE COMFORT, EVEN THOUGH YOU

STUMBLE, HE WON'T LET YOU FALL.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN BACK

TO HIM.

HE WON'T REJECT YOU, WON'T

DESPISE YOU OR TSA YOU OUT.

HIS PROMISE IS FOR YOU, HE'LL

NEVER LEAVE YOU, NEVER FORSAKE

YOU.

YOU ARE HIS CHILD.

HE MADE YOU AND WANTS YOU TO BE

WITH HIM FOR ALL ETERNITY.

SO IF THIS IS YOU, IF THIS IS

WHAT YOU WANT, ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS BOW YOUR HEAD, PRAY A VERY

SIMPLE PRAYER.

ASK JESUS TO SHOW UP FOR YOU.

IT IS A GREAT PRAYER, JESUS, IF

THIS IS REAL, IF YOU ARE REAL,

IF YOU CAN DELIVER ME IF YOU CAN

SAVE ME, WOULD YOU SHOW ME?

SO IF YOU WANT THAT, BOW YOUR

HEAD, CLOSE YOUR EYES, SAY A

SIMPLE PRAYER AND LET JESUS DO

FOR YOU WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR

OTHERS.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, THAT'S RIGHT, SAY IT.

SAY IT OUT LOUD, JESUS.

I COME TO YOU AND I ASK RIGHT

NOW THAT YOU WOULD FORGIVE ME.

THAT YOU WOULD SET ME FREE.

THAT YOU WOULD RESTORE ME AND

GIVE ME A NEW LIFE AND JESUS, IF

YOU'LL DO THIS, IF YOU'LL SHOW

UP FOR ME RIGHT NOW, I PROMISE

THAT I WANT TO FOLLOW YOU ALL

THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.

SO JESUS, HEAR MY PRAYER.

SET ME FREE.

CLEANSE ME, FORGIVE ME, AND BE

WITH ME FOR I ASK IT ALL IN YOUR

NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE THAT JUST

PRAYED, I ASK YOU TO FILL THEM

TO OVERFLOWING WITH YOUR LOVE,

THAT THEIR PRAYER IS HEARD AND

ACCEPTED TODAY.

FOR THOSE WITH DRUG AND ALCOHOL

PROBLEMS, BREAK THE CHAINS OF

ADDICTIONS OVER THEIR LIVES AND

ASK THEM TO BE SET FREE FROM

THIS MOMENT FORWARD.

TAKE AWAY THE DESIRE, TAKE AWAY

THE COMPULSION, FOR I ASK IT ALL

IN JESUS' NAME AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, DO THE

SAME THING RACHEL DID.

SHE SAID I ASKED JESUS INTO MY

LIFE, HE HAS SET ME FREE.

CONFESS THAT.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE BELIEVE IN

OUR HEARTS AND CONFESS WITH OUR

MOUTHS WE SHALL BE SAVED.

DO THAT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK UP

THE PHONE, MAKE A TOL FREE CALL,

TERRY?

TERRY: COMING UP NEXT,

GORDAN IS GOING TO ANSWER

VIEWER'S QUESTIONS, OUR PASTOR

BEGAN SECULAR MUSIC DURING

CHURCH, IS THIS OKAY?

STAY TUNED FOR THAT AND MORE, WE

ARE GOING TO BRING IT ON IN A

MOMENT.

TERRY: TIME FOR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

LEE WHO SAYS OUR PASTOR BEGAN

PLAYING SECULAR MUSIC BEFORE

SERVICE AND DURING ALTAR CALLS.

HE WANTED TO MAKE THE UNCHURCHED

FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE.

WE WERE ACCUSED OF BEING

IGNORANT.

ARE THERE SCRIPTURES THAT

SUPPORT THE PASTOR'S STANCE.

GORDAN: LEE, I AM SORRY

SOMEONE RESORTED TO NAME CALLING

SAYING YOU WERE IGNORANT OF THE

SCRIPTURES.

THAT HAS NO PLACE.

I APOLOGIZE TO YOU FOR THAT.

IN TERMS OF SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

OF TRYING TO BE CONTEMPORARY OR

MAKE THE GOSPEL CULTURALLY

RELEVANT.

PLENTY OF THAT, 1 CORINTHIANS

CHAPTER 9:22 PAUL SAY I HAVE

BECOME ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN I

MAY WIN SOME.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT MISSIONS

HISTORY, I AM GOING TO ADOPT

CHINESE DRESS AND EAT LIKE THE

CHINESE AND DWELL LIKE THE

CHINESE AND SPEAK LIKE THE

CHINESE IN ORDER TO WIN THE

CHINESE, HE WAS VERY EFFECTIVE

IN ADOPTING THOSE METHODS.

NOW, YOU ARE NOT TELLING ME WHAT

MUSIC THE PASTOR IS PLAYING.

IF HE IS PLAYING LED ZEPPELIN IN

AN ALTAR CALL, I DON'T THINK I

WOULD GO ALONG WITH THAT ONE.

ANOTHER THING DISPUTES OVER

MUSIC ARE NOTHING NEW TO THE

CHURCH.

ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE THIRD

CENTURY WHEN THE CHURCH BECAME

LEGAL, CHURCHS IN ASIA MINOR

HATED BECAUSE THEY HAD DANCING.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE FOR

THIS PROGRAM. LEAVE YOU WITH

PSALMS AS FOR GOD HIS WAY IS

PERFECT.

WORD OF LORD IS PERFECT.

HE IS A SHIELD TO ALL THAT TRUST

IN HIM.
