The 700 Club - April 4, 2013

When Landon was just ten-months old a trip to the doctor for an ear infection revealed a brain tumor. The prognosis was grim and left little Landon's family believing for a miracle. Read Transcript


THE DOCTOR SAID WE HAVE

FOUND WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.

Lee: A BABY FIGHTS FOR

SURVIVAL.

AND SHE SAID, HE HAS A

BRAIN TUMOR.

Lee: WITH A FAMILY BY

HIS SIDE.

EVEN THROUGH CHEMO, IT

CAN GROW.

Lee: AND A PROMISE BY

HIS BED.

SOMETIMES I JUST LOOK AT

HIM AND I JUST SAY, THANK

YOU, GOD.

*

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

WE HAVE A STORY ON ONE OF

THE SILENT KILLERS, THE

THING THAT IS EATING PEOPLE

FROM THE INSIDE, AND WE'LL

TELL YOU HOW TO FIX IT.

Terry: UH-HUH.

AND IT AFFECTS A LOT MORE

PEOPLE THAN ARE EVEN AWARE

OF IT.

Pat: MORE DISEASES THAN

YOU REALIZE.

AND WE'VE ALSO GOT THE

FABULOUS DOG, MAGGIE,

PRINCESS MAGGIE.

Terry: WHICH, WE MIGHT

ADD, HAS ALREADY EATEN THE

TOP OFF HER LEASH IN THE

DRESSING ROOM.

Pat: WHICH IS

INTERESTING.

SHE DIDN'T GET MY GLASSES,

BUT SHE DID A FEW DAYS AGO,

AND LEFT TEETH MARKS IN

THEM.

Terry: BATON DOWN THE

HATCHES.

Pat: STILL MORE THREATS

FROM NORTH KOREA.

NOW IT HAS MOVED A MISSILE

TO ITS EAST COAST.

AND IT SAYS IT IS GOING TO

LAUNCH A NUCLEAR ATTACK ON

THE UNITED STATES AND SPARE

NO MERCY.

Terry: WELL, THE WHITE

HOUSE IS DOWNPLAYING THE

POSSIBILITY OF WAR, BUT EVEN

SO, THE UNITED STATES IS

MAKING IT CLEAR IT IS READY

TO RESPOND IF IT HAS TO.

HERE IS CHARLENE ISRAEL.

Reporter: MORE THAN

28,000 AMERICAN TROOPS STAND

ON HIGH ALERT TODAY, NEAR

THE BORDER BETWEEN NORTH AND

SOUTH KOREA.

TWO U.S.-GUIDED MISSILE

DESTROYERS ARE NOW IN PLACE,

AND LAND BASE MISSILE

INTERCEPTORS ARE BEING

DISPATCHED TO GUAM.

ALL SIGNS THAT THE U.S. IS

READY TO ACT IF NORTH KOREA

DECIDES TO MAKE GOOD ON ITS

THREAT TO ATTACK.

I THINK WE SHOULD ALWAYS

BE CONCERNED WHEN SOMEBODY

IS THREATENING OUR HOMELAND

AND THREATENING OUR ALLIES.

AND IT'S CAUSING INSTABILITY

IN THE REGION.

Reporter: IN ITS LATEST

ROUND OF THREATS, NORTH

KOREA SAYS ITS MILITARY HAS

BEEN GIVEN A GREEN LIGHT TO

WAGE AN ATTACK ON THE U.S.,

USING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

AND SOUTH KOREA SAYS THE

NORTH HAS MOVED A MISSILE

WITH CONSIDERABLE RANGE TO

ITS EAST COAST.

OFFICIALS SAY THE MISSILE IS

NOT CAPABLE OF HITTING THE

UNITED STATES, BUT AMERICA

IS TAKING THE THREATS

SERIOUSLY.

SOME OF THE ACTIONS

THEY'VE TAKEN OVER THE LAST

FEW WEEKS PRESENT A REAL AND

CLEAR DANGER.

IT ONLY TAKES BEING WRONG

ONCE.

AND I DON'T WANT TO BE THE

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE WHO WAS

WRONG ONCE.

THE UNITED STATES WILL

DEFEND AND PROTECT OURSELVES

AND OUR TREATY ALLY, THE

REPUBLIC OF KOREA.

Reporter: STILL, THE

TOP U.S. COMMANDER IN THE

REGION SAYS HE IS CONFIDENT

THE THREAT WILL SUBSIDE.

THE WHITE HOUSE ALSO

CONTINUES TO DOWN PLAY AN

ATTACK.

PRESS SECRETARY JAY CARNE

SAYS THAT WILL PRECAUTIONS

ARE BEING TAKEN, BUT THE

BEHAVIOR OF NORTH KOREA

REPRESENTS A TYPICAL

SCENARIO.

Pat: THERE IS NO

QUESTION THAT THE FAMILY WHO

RUNS NORTH KOREA IS INSANE.

THEY ARE PARANOID AND

SCHIZOPHRENIA, WHATEVER THE

TERM, AND THE PROBLEM IS

THEY HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS

AND THEY HAVE A BIG ARMY.

BUT THEY'RE A TINY, TINY,

PIP SQUEAK LITTLE COUNTRY.

AND THE PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING

DREADLY.

SO WHAT THEY DO IS GIVE THE

THREAT OF WAR IN ORDER TO

HOLD THEIR PEOPLE IN CHECK,

AND ALSO TO GET THE MILITARY

TO GO ALONG WITH THE

LEADERSHIP.

THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THEY

START TALKING ABOUT SENDING

NUCLEAR BOMBS TO THE UNITED

STATES WITH NO MERCY, IT IS

SOMETHING WE HAVE TO TAKE

SERIOUSLY.

AND I WAS IN KOREA, I WAS

THERE DURING THE SO-CALLED

KOREAN WAR, AND I WAS

STATIONED IN NORTH KOREA,

ABOVE THE 38th PARALLEL.

WE DON'T NEED GROUND TROOPS

IN CAREER THE NEXT TIME

OUT.

WE SHOULD JUST FLATTEN

EVERYTHING THAT IS THERE.

WE SHOULD BOMB PYONGYANG AND

ALL OF THOSE INSTALLATIONS,

AND LET THEM KNOW THERE WILL

BE NO MERCY AT OUR HANDS.

I THINK THAT IS WHAT HAS GOT

TO BE COMMUNICATED TO THOSE

PEOPLE.

BUT THEY ARE CRAZY.

YOU'RE DEALING WITH MAD MEN

WHO HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

SO IT IS SERIOUS, YET IT

ISN'T SERIOUS.

IT IS A PLOY TO GET MORE

MONEY FROM US, BUT THEY'RE

GOING ABOUT IT THE WRONG

WAY.

HERE AT HOME, WE HAVE

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HUNDREDS

OF MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER

DOLLARS LOST IN SOME KIND OF

A BLACK HOLE.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

HERE IS LEE.

Lee: PAT, A NEW

INSPECTOR

GENERAL'S REPORT

FOUND THAT $700 MILLION OF

GOVERNMENT RELIEF MONEY FOR

VICTIMS OF HURRICANE KATRINA

WERE MISSPENT OR ARE SIMPLY

MISSING.

"THE ROAD HOME" PROGRAM

AWARDED GRANTS UP TO $30,000

TO HELP HOMEOWNERS REBUILD

THEIR HOMES.

BUT MANY TOOK THE MONEY AND

RAN.

THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING

AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SAYS

THE STATE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR

MAKING SURE THAT THE MONEY

WAS SPENT PROPERLY.

IT IS NOW PRESSING LOUISIANA

OFFICIALS TO RECOVER THAT

MONEY.

REPUBLICAN SENATOR TOM

COBURN IS PUSHING TO MAKE

SURE THE SAME MISTAKE

DOESN'T HAPPEN WITH THE

GOVERNMENT AID TO VICTIMS OF

SUPER STORM SANDY.

AS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

PREPARES TO SPEND NEARLY

$16 BILLION ON RECOVERY

EFFORTS RELATED TO SANDY,

THIS IS A MISTAKE TAXPAYERS

AND CITIZENS AFFECTED BY THE

STORM CAN'T AFFORD TO SEE

REPEATED.

PAT?

Pat: FOLKS, I, AGAIN,

WAS THERE RIGHT AFTER THE

STORM HIT.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAD

EXTENSIVE OPERATIONS.

I WANT TO TELL YOU, FEMA,

DURING THAT INSTALLATION WAS

AS INCOMPETENT AS IT COULD

POSSIBLY BE.

SO HUGE AMOUNTS OF WASTE.

FIELDS FULL OF VEHICLES THAT

WEREN'T USED.

HOUSES THAT WEREN'T LIVED

IN.

IT WAS JUST UNBELIEVABLE

AMOUNT OF WASTE.

AND THIS IS IS JUST AN

EXAMPLE OF MONEY JUST BEING

FLUSHED OUT.

BUT THIS IS UNDER THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY.

AND IT SHOWS WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN YOU TAKE DESPERATE

AGENCIES, AND IN THE NAME OF

EFFICIENCY, YOU JUST JAM

THEM ALL TOGETHER.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE BUSH

ADMINISTRATION DID.

THEY JAMMED EVERYTHING

TOGETHER, AND THEY'VE SAID

WE'VE GOT SOMETHING

WONDERFUL, AND IT'S CALLED

HOMELAND SECURITY.

NONSENSE.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, THE OBAMA

WHITE HOUSE IS PUSHING BANKS

TO MAKE MORE HOME LOANS

AVAILABLE TO PEOPLE WITH

WEAKER CREDIT.

THE "WASHINGTON POST"

REPORTS THE IDEA IS TO

STRENGTHEN THE ECONOMIC

RECOVERY.

THE WHITE HOUSE BELIEVES NOT

ENOUGH PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO

BUY HOMES AS THE HOUSING

MARKET RECOVERS,

AND THAT

INCLUDES YOUNG PEOPLE WHO

WANT THEIR FIRST HOMES, AND

PEOPLE WITH CREDIT RECORDS

THAT HURT IN THE RECENT

RECESSION.

BUT CRITICS WARN THE MOVE

COULD LEAD TO THE RISKY

TYPES OF LOANS THAT CAUSED

THE HOUSING BUBBLE AND CRASH

IN THE LAST DECADE.

AN OHIO SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS

TAKEN DOWN A PORTRAIT OF

JESUS THAT HAS BEEN ON

DISPLAY THERE SINCE 1947,

THE PICTURE WAS AT A JACKSON

CITY MIDDLE SCHOOL.

IT WAS MOVED LATER TO A

LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL.

THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES

UNION AND THE FREEDOM FROM

RELIGION FOUNDATION FOUGHT

THAIT.

THE SUPERINTENDENT, PAT,

SAYS THE DISTRICT COULDN'T

JUST ROLL THE DICE WITH

TAXPAYER MONEY ON ANOTHER

COURT BATTLE.

Pat: IT JUST SHOWS WHAT

A FEW FANATICS CAN

ACCOMPLISH.

A FEW WHO DON'T BELIEVE IN

ANYTHING HAVE BEEN ABLE TO

DISMANTEL OUR WHOLE

INFRASTRUCTURE OF RELIGIOUS

FAITH.

OUR COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON

RELIGIOUS FAITH.

WE ARE A RELIGIOUS PEOPLE,

WHO'S INSTITUTIONS

PRESUPPOSE THE EXISTENCE OF

A SUPREME BEING.

AND THE FACT THAT OUR

FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD BE

OFFENDED BY A PICTURE OF

JESUS CHRIST IS JUSTICE

APPALLING.

I MEAN, SO THAT IS AN

UNCONSTITUTIONAL

ENTERTAINMENT OF RELIGION?

BUT THESE ADMINISTRATORS

WON'T FIGHT.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY

BACKBONES.

SURE, IT COST SOME MONEY,

BUT I IMAGINE THE GOOD

PEOPLE OF OHIO WILL DIP INTO

THEIR POCKETS TO CONTRIBUTE

TO A LEGAL DEFENSE FUND.

IT IS OUTRAGEOUS WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

IF WE DON'T STAND UP, THE

FREEDOM FROM RELIGIOUS --

WHATEVER COMPANY IT IS --

WHATEVER THEY CALL IT -- IN

MY EAR -- FOUNDATION, THE

FREEDOM FROM RELIGION, AND

THE ACLU -- THEY, TOGETHER,

HAVE DONE EVERYTHING THEY

CAN TO TAKE AWAY OUR

RELIGIOUS FAITH IN OUR

COUNTRY.

TERRIBLE.

BUT WE LET THEM GET AWAY

WITH IT.

LEE?

Lee: SECRETARY OF STATE

JOHN KERRY IS HEADING TO THE

MIDDLE EAST FOR THE THIRD

TIME IN TWO WEEKS.

HE IS TRYING TO RESTART THE

PEACE TALKS BETWEEN THE

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS.

NO ONE IS EXPECTING A

BREAKTHROUGH, BUT THE

MEETINGS REPRESENT THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION'S MOST

SUSTAINED EFFORT YET IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

MILITANTS HAVE FIRED SEVERAL

ROCKETS FROM GAZA INTO

SOUTHERN ISRAEL, AND ISRAEL

HAS RETALIATED WITH AIR

STRIKES.

MANY AMERICANS WORRY THAT

THE GOVERNMENT COULD USE

U.S. DRONES TO SPY ON OUR

EVEN ATTACK ITS OWN

CITIZENS.

ISRAELIS ARE USING A NEW

TYPE OF DRONE TO SAVE

ISRAELI LIVES.

Reporter: IT IS CALLED

SKY LARK, ONE OF THE WORLD'S

SMALLEST DRONES.

IT IS THE KIND OF TOOL

BECOMING MORE AND MORE

CRUCIAL TO THE GLOBAL WAR ON

TERROR.

IT IS A GAME CHANGER.

ONCE WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

BEHIND THIS MOUNTAIN, AND

NOW IN TWO SECONDS, YOU KNOW

AND CAN ACT ACCORDINGLY.

Reporter: THE IDEA GAVE

CBN A LOOK AT THIS DRONE.

THE 13-POUND SKY LARK IS

CARRIED IN A BACKPACK TO THE

FIELD.

THIS IS THE PROCESS.

FROM LIVE INTELLIGENCE, FROM

THE NEXT FIELD, THE NEXT

CORNER, AND THE NEXT ALLEY.

Reporter: THE UNIT IS

ASSEMBLE THE SKY LARK AND

LAUNCH IT WITHIN EIGHT

MINUTES.

IT GIVES ISRAELI TROOPS A

NEW ADVANTAGE IN THE FIELD.

WE ARE ACTUALLY WALKING

IN THE FIELD, LIKE EVERY

GROUND TROOPS, AND USING THE

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY.

Reporter: THIS

HIGH-TECH DRONE IS ACTUALLY

LAUNCHED FROM A BUNGEE CORD

INTO THE WIND.

IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG BEFORE

IT IS OUT OF SIGHT.

IT CAN FLY UP TO 15,000

PEOPLE IN THE AIR FOR THREE

HOURS, AT ABOUT 50 MILES PER

HOUR.

AND EVEN FASTER IF THERE IS

A GOOD TAIL WIND.

NOAH GOLDSTEIN IS AN OFFICER

IN TRAINING.

RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE TO GET

THREE PEOPLE ON THE

COMPUTER, BUT EACH ONE OF US

HAS DIFFERENT JOBS.

BASICALLY RIGHT HERE, HE IS

ACTUALLY FLYING THE PLANE.

HE IS IN CHARGE OF GIVING

ALL OF THE COMMANDS.

BASICALLY EVERYTHING THAT A

PLANE DOES IS UNDER THIS

CONTROL.

Reporter: SOLDIERS

DON'T NEED FLIGHT EXPERIENCE

TO OPERATE IT.

ONLY POINTS TO CAMERA AND

THE SKY LARK RESPONDS.

RELAYING REALTIME VIDEO DAY

OR NIGHT IN ALL WEATHER

CONDITIONS.

IT CAN SAVE TROOPS FROM

AMBUSH, PREVENT CIVILIAN

CASUALTIES ON THE ENEMY

SIDE, BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS

RECORDED.

IT IS PROOF.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

THE SKY LARK'S DEVELOPER AND

MANUFACTURER, THE U.S. IS

CURRENTLY OPERATED BY NATO

COUNTRIES AND OTHERS AROUND

THE WORLD, INCLUDING THE

U.K. IN IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN.

WHEN SKY LARK IS FINISHED,

THE ENGINE STALLS, AN AIRBAG

PUFFS OUT, AND THE U.A.S.

DROPS TO THE GROUND.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

CHRIS MITCHELL, THE NAGAR

DESERT.

Lee: HERE AT HOME, THE

CONNECTICUT LAWMAKERS HAVE

PASSED SWEEPING NEW LAWS.

IT EXPANDS THE CURRENT STATE

BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS, AND

REQUIRES BACKGROUND CHECKS

FOR ALL FIREARM SALES, AND

PREVENTS THE SALE OR

PURCHASE OF MAGAZINES THAT

HOLD MORE 10 ROUNDS.

THE BILL ALSO ADDRESSES

MENTAL HEALTH AND SCHOOL

SECURITY MEASURES.

THE GOVERNOR IS SET TO SIGN

IT TODAY.

CANCER AND HEART DISEASE ARE

THE DEADLIEST DISEASES IN

THE U.S., BUT DEMENTIA IS

THE MOST EXPENSIVE.

A NEW STUDY FROM THE RAND

CORPORATION FINDS THAT THE

DISEASE COSTS FAMILIES AND

SOCIETY UP TO $215 BILLION A

YEAR.

THE HIGH COST COMES FROM THE

CARE THAT IS NEEDED TO GET

PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA THROUGH

THEIR DAILY LIVES.

MORE THAN FOUR MILLION

PEOPLE ARE ESTIMATED TO HAVE

SOME FORM OF DEMENTIA.

ALZHEIMER'S, OF COURSE, IS

THE MOST COMMON.

IT IS THE SIXTH LEADING

CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE U.S.

PAT?

Pat: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

AND AT THIS POINT IN TIME,

THEY HAVE BROUGHT ME, JUST

TO LET YOU KNOW I'M HUMAN,

AND I CARE FOR LITTLE

ANIMALS.

Terry: OR BIG ONES.

Pat: THIS IS MAGGIE.

Terry: SHE HAS GOTTEN

SO BIG.

Pat: SHE IS AN IRISH

WATER SPANIEL, AND SHE IS A

VERY SWEET DOG, AND

SOMETIMES SHE DOES TRICKS.

I WANT YOU TO LIE DOWN.

HERE, HONEY.

LIE DOWN.

ROLL OVER.

Terry: GOOD GIRL,

MAGGIE.

SHE'S GOTTEN MUCH BETTER.

Pat: I KNOW.

I TRAIN HER.

MAGGIE, HERE.

NO.

IT'S NOT IN THE BAG.

IT'S EN MY HAND.

SPEAK.

SPEAK.

SPEAK LOUDER.

IT'S ALMOST SPEAKING.

Terry: SPEAK, MAGGIE.

Pat: SPEAK.

Terry: MAYBE IF YOU

BARK, SHE'LL BARK.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

THERE.

ALL RIGHT, MAGGIE.

Terry: MAGGIE, LOOK AT

YOU.

Pat: SIT.

SIT.

Terry: I HAVE TO ASK

BECAUSE SHE HAS EATEN THE

TOP OF HER LEASH --

Pat: SHE LIKES TO

CHEW.

Terry: DOES SHE CHEW IN

YOUR HOUSE?

Pat: SHE WILL CHEW

EVERYTHING SHE CAN GET HER

HANDS ON.

Terry: THERE IS A

RECOMMENDATION FOR A BREED.

Pat: LIE DOWN AND STAY

DOWN THERE.

Terry: HOW OLD IS SHE

NOW?

Pat: SHE IS ABOUT A

YEAR AND TWO, THREE MONTHS.

Terry: LOOK AT THE SIZE

OF HER PAWS.

DO YOU FEED HER?

SHE IS DESPERATE --

Pat: SHE DIDN'T HAVE

BREAKFAST THIS MORNING.

Terry:

UNDERSTANDABLY -- YES,

HELLO, I LOVE YOUR FUR.

Pat: JUMP -- MAGGIE --

Terry: THE SWEETS ARE

GONE, AND I'M OUT OF HERE.

Pat: I ATE THE WHOLE

BAG.

OH!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

YOU TRYING TO KILL MY DOG?

Terry: COME ON,

MAGGIE.

Pat: ONE MORE TIME.

THIS IS THE LAST LITTLE

PIECE I HAVE.

HERE.

Terry: WHAT MADE YOU

GET THIS BREED.

Pat: THEY'RE VERY

SMART.

AND THEY ARE VERY LOVING.

AND THEY ARE LIKE CLOWNS.

THEY LOVE TO PLAY.

Terry: SHE IS

ADORABLE.

SHE IS ADORABLE.

Pat: ISN'T SHE CUTE?

Terry: SHE IS

ADORABLE.

Pat: THAT'S OUR ANIMAL

TREAT FOR THE DAY.

PRINCESS MAGGIE.

Terry: YOU'RE A

HUMANITARIAN.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

THIS IS DOG WEEK OR NOT --

Terry: WELL, IT IS

NOW.

COMING UP, SOMETHING

SERIOUS.

THEY CALL IT THE SILENT

KILLER, AND IT IS THE

CULPRIT BEHIND AILMENTS

RANGING FROM SKIN WRINKLES

AND HEART ATTACKS.

FIND OUT WHAT IT IS AND HOW

TO STOP IT.

LATER ON, A 10 MONTH OLD IS

GIVING A 10% CHANCE AT

SURVIVAL.

HEAR HIS STORY.

THAT'S ALL LATER ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Pat: SOME YEARS AGO ON

THIS PROGRAM, WE FEATURED A

GUY NAMED PERRICONE, AND HE

EMPHASIZED INFLAMMATION, AND

NONE OF US WERE THINKING

ABOUT INFLAMMATION, BUT HE

WAS SAYING THAT THIS WAS

REALLY A SERIOUS HEALTH

PROBLEM.

NOW, INFLAMMATION HAS RISEN

TO BE PUBLIC

ENEMY NUMBER

ONE WHEN IT COMES

TO YOUR

HEALTH.

THE MORE

DOCTORS LEARN ABOUT

IT, THE MORE THEY REALIZE

JUST HOW DESTRUCTIVE IT IS.

THERE IS GOOD NEWS.

YOU CAN REDUCE THE

INFLAMMATION INSIDE YOUR

BODY BY CONTROLLING WHAT YOU

EAT.

HERE IS OUR HEALTH REPORTER

LORI JOHNSON WITH THE

LOWDOWN ON INFLAMMATION.

Reporter: NO MATTER

WHAT TYPE OF HEALTH PROBLEM

YOU'RE FACING, CHANCES ARE

IT BEGAN WITH INFLAMMATION.

THIS INTERNAL IRRITATION

CAUSES OUR WHOLE BODY TO

BREAK DOWN.

WHETHER YOU HAVE A

WRINKLE IN YOUR SKIN, CAUSED

BY AN ARTERY BEING INFLAMED,

OR A WRINKLE IN YOUR HEART,

A HEART ATTACK, OR

IMPOTENCE, IT IS REALLY THE

SAME PROCESS AND IT'S ALL

CAUSED, OR AT LEAST IT

STARTS WITH THAT

INFLAMMATION IN YOUR

ARTERY.

Reporter: DR. MICHAEL

ROSEN IS THE CHAIRMAN OF THE

WORLD FAMOUS CLEVELAND

CLINIC'S WELLNESS

INSTITUTE.

HE SAYS INFLAMMATION IS THE

SILENT KILLER THAT HAS

ALLUDED THE MEDICAL

COMMUNITY FOR YEARS.

IT IS ONLY RECENTLY THAT

WE'VE UNDERSTOOD THAT IT HAS

A ROLE, AND ONLY RECENTLY

THAT IT HAS A REALLY

IMPORTANT ROLE OR PROMINENT

ROLE, IN CAUSING DISEASES

SUCH AS CANCER, OR HEART

ATTACKS AND STROKES, OR

CAUSING THE INFECTIOUS

DISEASES GETTING OUT OF

CONTROL THAT WE NOW HAVE.

Reporter: DOCTORS KNOW

FOR SURE THAT INFLAMMATION

CAUSES ALL KINDS OF

ILLNESS.

BUT WHAT CAUSES

INFLAMMATION?

MOSTLY AN UNHEALTHY DIET.

ONE THAT INCLUDES SUGARY

DRINKS, SWEET FOOD, AND

REFINED CARBOHYDRATES, SUCH

AS WHITE BREAD, PASTA AND

RICE.

AND ALSO HYDROGENATED OILS,

KNOWN AS TRANS-FATS, FOUND

IN PACKAGED FOODS, FAST

FOODS, MARGINEN.

AND THE THIRD IN

INFLAMMATORY GROUP IS OMEGA

6 FATS.

CAUSES YOUR ARTERIES TO

GET INFLAMED, DECREASES YOUR

ABILITY TO FIGHT INFECTIONS,

DECREASES YOUR ABILITY TO

FIND CANCER CELLS AND GET

RID OF THEM BEFORE THEY

CAUSE CANCER, AND INCREASES

INFLAMMATION AND ATHRO

SCLEROSIS.

Reporter:

UNFORTUNATELY, OMEGA 6 FATS

ARE EVERYWHERE.

WE COOK AND BAKE WITH THEM,

THEY'RE IN PACKAGED FOOD AND

FAST FOOD AND RESTAURANT

FOOD.

BUT IF YOU KNOW HOW TO SPOT

THEM ON THE STORE SHELVES

AND IN THE LIST OF

INGREDIENTS, YOU CAN AVOID

THEM.

OMEGA 6 FATS ARE VEGETABLE

OILS, SUCH AS SOYBEAN OIL

AND CORN OIL, PEANUT OIL,

GRAPE SEED OIL, COTTON SEED

OIL, SAF FLOWER AND

SUNFLOWER OILS.

SO EVEN THOUGH A CERTAIN

FOOD CAN CONTAIN ZERO

DANGEROUS HYDRO NATED OILS,

IT COULD HAVE OMEGA 6 FATS.

THEY ARE TECHNICALLY OKAY SO

LONG AS YOU EAT ABOUT THE

SAME AMOUNT OF OMEGA-3

FATS.

THE PROBLEM IS MOST

AMERICANS EAT 25 TIMES MORE

OMEGA 6s THAN OMEGA-3s,

AND THAT IMBALANCE CAUSES

MASSIVE INFLAMMATION.

OMEGA-3 FATS MOSTLY COME

FROM SEAFOOD.

THE RATIO FROM OMEGA 6 TO

OMEGA-3 IS IMPORTANT.

THE HIGHER THE RATIO, THE

MORE OMEGA 6 OR THE LESS

OMEGA-3, THE LESS

INFORMATION.

THERE ARE ONLY A FEW

SOURCES OF OMEGA-3 FATS.

CERTAIN TYPES OF

FISH OR

FISH OIL CAPSULES ARE THE

BEST.

OTHER LESS POTENT SOURCES

ARE WALNUTS, GROUND

FLAXSEED, DARK, GREEN LEAFY

VEGETABLES, EGGS FORTIFIED

WITH OMEGA-3s.

AND GRASS-FED MEAT IS HIGHER

THAN GRAIN FED.

OLIVE OIL IS A GREAT WAY TO

REDUCE INFLAMMATION.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT

TECHNICALLY AN OMEGA-3, BUT

RATHER ITS COWS, OMEGA 9.

OMEGA-3, OMEGA 9, OMEGA

7 -- WE DON'T KNOW WHY THAT

ODDNESS IS GOOD, BUT IT

DECREASES INFLAMMATION.

Reporter: BUT BE

CAREFUL NOT TO GET OLIVE OIL

TOO HOT.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ALL OF

THE OILS ONCE YOU GET ABOVE

THEIR SMOKE POINT, YOU

DENATURE THEM.

YOU CHANGE THEIR CHARACTER.

SO INSTEAD OF HAVING OMEGA

9, THEY BECOME A DIFFERENT

OIL, AND, IN FACT, THEY HAVE

A DIFFERENT STRUCTURE THAT

MAY NOT BE HEALTHY.

AND IN THE CASE OF OLIVE

OIL, WE DON'T BELIEVE IS

HEALTHY.

SO THAT'S WHY YOU DON'T WANT

TO GO OVER THE SMOKE POINT

OF ANY OF THE OILS.

Reporter: SO FOR

OPTIMAL HEALTH, EAT AN

ANTIINFLAMMATORY DIET, ONE

THAT IS LOW IN SUGAR, AND

TRANS FANT TRANS-FATS AND

OMEGA 6 FATS, BUT HIGH AND

OMEGA-3, FOUND IN FISH, AND

OMEGA 9, WHICH IS IN OLIVE

OIL.

Pat: WOW, WHAT A

REPORT.

LORI IS HERE WITH US.

WHAT YOU AND DR. ROSEN ARE

SAYING IS THAT THE AMERICAN

DIET IS JUST LOADED WITH

THINGS THAT KILL THEM?

ABSOLUTELY.

AND YOU KNOW, IT HAS BEEN

SAID THAT 80% OF THE DISEASE

AND ILLNESS THAT WE FACE

TODAY IS BECAUSE OF POOR

LIFESTYLE CHOICES.

SO IF WE CAN GET ON THIS

ANTIINFLAMMATORY DIET, I

GUARANTEE PEOPLE WILL LIVE

HEALTHIER LIVES.

Pat: BUT YOU DON'T KNOW

IT IS THERE.

YOU'RE EATING ALONG AND YOU

GO TO A FAST FOOD RESTAURANT

AND YOU HAVE A MEAL, AND YOU

THINK THIS IS COOL.

BUT WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS

MAKING YOUR ARTERIES

INFLAMED?

ABSOLUTELY.

AND FAST FOOD, RESTAURANT

FOOD, AND PACKAGED FOODS,

THE

PROCESSED FOODS, THOSE

ARE THE BIG THREE TO AVOID.

Pat: I MUST SAY I USED

TO THINK THAT SA SAFFLOWER

OIL WAS ONE OF THE GOOD

GUYS, AND NOW YOU ALL ARE

SAYING IT IS NOT REALLY A

BAD ONE, BUT IT HAS GOT TO

BE IN BALANCE.

THAT'S TRUE.

WE WERE TOLD THAT THESE

CERTAIN OILS ARE HEART

HEALTHY, BUT WE'RE EATING

WAY, WAY TOO MANY OF THEM,

AND THAT DISPROPORTIONALITY

IS WHAT IS CAUSING MASSIVE

INFLAMMATION.

WE HAVE TO STOP EATING SO

MANY

OF THE

VEGETABLE OILS,

AND THE

SOYBEAN OIL

ESPECIALLY.

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT ONE

FIFTH

OF

OUR

TOTAL CALORIE

INTAKE IS SOYBEAN OIL.

SO YOU HAVE TO CHECK THAT

LIST OF INGREDIENTS, AND

LOOK FOR

SOYBEAN OIL.

EVEN THOUGH SOMETHING MAY BE

TRANS-FAT-FREE, IT MAY BE

LOADED WITH OMEGA 6.

Pat: INFLAMMATION --

WE'RE LOOKING AT DEMENTIA,

AND HARDENING OF THE

ARTERIES, ARTHROSCLEROSIS,

AND WE'RE LOOKING AT

STROKES?

Reporter: ALL OF THE

ABOVE, ARTHRITIS, DIABETES,

AND EVEN BEHAVIORAL

PROBLEMS, LIKE AGGRESSION

AND

A.D.D., AD/HD, AND

AUTISM.

THESE ARE

ALL

ASSOCIATED

WITH INFLAMMATION.

THIS IS CUTTING-EDGE STUFF,

AND I THINK IN THE FUTURE

WE'RE GOING TO BE HEARING

MORE ABOUT THE DANGERS OF

INFLAMMATION.

Pat: HOW MANY WOMEN,

WHEN THEY GO TO THE GROCERY

STORE, AND THEIR HUSBAND MAY

AGGRESSIVE AND BEAT THEM,

AND IT IS BECAUSE OF WHAT

THEY'RE EATING.

LADIES, KILL THE

INFLAMMATION BEFORE HE KILLS

YOU.

Reporter: THAT'S

RIGHT.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND THERE ARE SIX MAIN

CAUSES OF INFLAMMATION, AND

I REALLY HOPE OUR VIEWERS

CAN GET THIS.

YOU'RE A SMART GUY, YOU WENT

TO YALE, RIGHT?

Pat: IT DOESN'T MAKE ME

SMART.

Reporter: I'M GOING TO

QUIZ YOU.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN CAUSES --

THERE ARE SIX MAIN CAUSES OF

INFLAMMATION.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY ARE?

Pat: THE GREATEST

CULPRIT IS SUGAR.

BEYOND THAT IS WHITE FLOUR.

YES.

Pat: AND TRANS-FAT.

Reporter: VERY GOOD.

AND WHAT DID WE TALK ABOUT

TODAY?

Pat: THE WRONG OIL.

OMEGA 6s.

Reporter: AND SEDENTARY

LIFLIFESTYLE, STRESS, AND

POLLUTION, WHICH IS SMOKING

AND OTHER TOXINS IN THE

ENVIRONMENT.

THOSE ARE YOUR MAIN

INFLAMMATORY PROBLEMS.

IF YOU CAN GET A HANDLE ON

THOSE, STOP EATING THE

SUGAR, THE REFINED

CARBOHYDRATES, AND THE

TRANS-FATS AND OMEGA 6

FATS.

Pat: AND MORE AND MORE

THE RESEARCH IS SHOWING THAT

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP HAS

A CHEMICAL IN IT THAT MAKES

US WANT TO EAT MORE AND IT

CAUSES FAT.

ACTUALLY, ALL SUGARS ARE

THAT WAY.

AND ACTUALLY A LOT OF FAT IS

THAT WAY, TOO.

THE MORE WE EAT, THE MORE WE

WANT.

THEY ARE ADDICTIVE.

AND GOD MADE OUR BODIES

PERFECTLY, BUT HE DID NOT

DESIGN THEM TO BE FED WITH

152 POUNDS OF SUGAR A YEAR,

WHICH IS WHAT MOST AMERICANS

EAT.

THAT IS JUST DESTRUCTIVE,

AND IT CAUSES MASSIVE

INFLAMMATION, AND IT CAUSES

OUR BODIES TO BREAK DOWN.

IT ONLY MAKES SENSE.

Pat: THE LOW GLYCEMIC

DIET IS THE ONE -- WE'VE

BEEN TALKING ABOUT THAT FOR

YEARS, BUT NOW MORE AND

MORE, THIS IS THE STUFF THAT

IS KILLING YOU.

AND I MIGHT ALSO ADD, LORI,

IF YOU HAVE A DOG, IT

OBVIOUSLY REDUCES YOUR

STRESS LEVELS, WHICH REDUCES

YOUR CORTISOL, WHICH MAKES

YOU THIN.

Reporter: RIGHT.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE

REDUCES STRESS IS EXERCISE.

GOD DID NOT DESIGN OUR

BODIES TO BE SEDENTARY.

SO IF WE EXERCISE, WE'RE

KILLING TWO BIRDS WITH ONE

STONE.

WE'RE MOVING, BUT ALSO

THAT'S A NATURAL STRESS

RELIEVER.

Pat: OKAY.

WELL, YESTERDAY I RODE A

HORSE, AND TODAY I EXERCISED

THE DOG.

AND SHORTLY THEREAFTER, I'M

GOING TO RIDE A HORSE

AGAIN.

Reporter: GOOD.

I'M NOT SO SURE HOW

CARDIOVASCULAR OF AN

EXERCISE THAT IS --

Pat: YOU NEED TO RIDE

THE WAY I RIDE.

Reporter: ALL RIGHT.

IS THAT AN INVITATION.

I'VE SEEN YOUR HORSE FARM.

IT IS VERY IMPRESSIVE.

Pat: I LIKE ANIMALS.

IT DOES SOMETHING TO YOU.

REAGAN SAID THE OUTSIDE OF A

HORSE IS GOOD FOR THE INSIDE

OF A MAN.

Reporter: ABSOLUTELY.

Pat: LORI, ONE MORE

THING, I

FOUND THIS OMEGA

THING, AND I WANTED TO

REALLY DO IT, SO I WAS

TAKING TWO TABLESPOONS OF

CONCENTRATED COD LIVER OIL.

AND I FINALLY READ THE

LABEL, AND GUESS WHAT?

THEY SAID THE RECOMMENDED

ALLOWANCE IS ONE TEASPOON.

I WAS TAKING FOUR TIMES TOO

MUCH, AND IT GAVE ME

HEARTBURN.

Reporter: COD LIVER

OIL, UM -- THE BEST FISH OIL

IS FROM SALMON.

ACCORDING TO DR. ROSEN, YOU

LOOK AT THE LABEL AND SEE

HOW E.P.A. AND HOW MUCH

D.P.A. IS IN EACH CAPSULE.

YOU WANT TO TAKE ABOUT

750 MILLIGRAMS OF D.H.A. A

DAY.

THAT USUALLY WORKS OUT TO

ABOUT THREE OR FOUR OF THOSE

BIG FISH OIL CAPSULES.

Pat: I WAS TAKING 3,000

OR 4,000 A DAY, AND I THINK

IT HAS A TENDENCY TO MAKE

YOU HAVE A LITTLE

HEARTBURN.

ALL RIGHT, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, YOU HEARD IT

HERE.

DO WHAT LORI SAYS AND DO

WHAT DR. ROSEN SAYS.

LIVE LONG AND HEALTHY AND

WE'LL GO OUT AT 100

TOGETHER.

Terry: ALONG WITH YOUR

DOGS.

WELL, COMING UP, DOCTORS

DISCOVER THE ROOT CAUSE OF

ONE BABY'S EAR INFECTION, A

BRAIN TUMOR INTWINED NEAR

HIS SPINAL CORD.

THE TYPE OF TUMOR HE HAD

IS SO AGGRESSIVE, THAT EVEN

THROUGH CHEMO IT CAN GROW.

THEY CALLED IT INTO A

MEETING AND SAID THIS IS

VERY SERIOUS.

HE BASICALLY HAS A 10% TO

30% CHANCE OF LIVING.

Terry: HEAR HOW THIS

CHILD SURVIVED.

AND THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" ON THIS -- THIS IS

THURSDAY, ISN'T IT?

Terry: THIS IS

THURSDAY.

Pat: IF THIS IS

THURSDAY, YESTERDAY WAS

WEDNESDAY, AND TOMORROW IS

FRIDAY, RIGHT?

Terry: THAT MIND OF

YOURS WORKS LIKE A STEEL

TRAP.

Pat: LIKE A STEEL

SPRING.

10-MONTH-OLD LANDON COULDN'T

STOP CRYING.

HE HAD BEEN THE IDEAL BABY,

EASY GOING, NOT AT ALL

FUSSY, AND INCREDIBLY CUTE.

AND SO WHEN HE BECAME

INCONSOLABLE, HIT HIS

FAMILY TOOK HIM TO THE

DOCTOR, AND THE FAMILY WAS

SHOCKED WITH WHAT THE DOCTOR

FOUND.

A TUMOR THE SIZE OF A GOLF

BALL SITTING ON THE BASE OF

LANDON'S BRAINMENT.

HE IS A VERY SWEET BABY.

QUIET, NOT MUCH BOTHERED

HIM.

WE WERE JUST STARTLED.

WE WERE ABSOLUTELY

STARTLED.

YOU HEAR PEOPLE SAY BRAIN

TUMOR, AND IT CONJURES UP

THE WORST THING POSSIBLE.

LANDON WAS PRETTY YOUNG, SO

WE TOOK A VERY ACTIVE ROLE

AND CARING FOR HIM AND JUST

BEING AROUND HIM.

HE WAS A GOOD LITTLE GUY.

HE SLEPT WELL.

HE ATE WELL.

HE WAS A GOOD BABY.

ABOUT 10 MONTHS OLD, HE

HAD GOTTEN AN EAR

INFECTION.

AND HE STARTED ACTING A LOT

DIFFERENT THAN NORMAL.

A LOT MORE FUSSY, CRYING A

LOT MORE.

THE DOCTOR SAID, WE HAVE

FOUND WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.

AND SHE CALLED ME & SHE

SHOWED ME THE X-RAY.

AND SHE SAID HE HAS GOT A

BRAIN TUMOR, ABOUT FOUR

CENTIMETRES.

IT IS AT THE STEM OF HIS

BRAIN.

THEY TOOK HIM TO

I.C.RIGHT AWAY C. RIGHT

AWAY AND HAD HIM IN

SURGERY.

ONCE WE GOT THROUGH THE

INITIAL PANIC, WE ALL

STARTED PRAYING, TELLING

FRIENDS AND FAMILY SO THEY

COULD BE IN PRAYER.

THE FIRSTTHENIN FIRST

THING THEY DID WAS A

TEMPORARY SHUNT BECAUSE THE

BRAIN TUMOR WAS BLOCKING

FLUID FROM DRAINING IN HIS

BRAIN.

TWO AND A HALF WEEKS AT THE

TEMPORARY SHUNT WAS IN

PLACE, THEY DID WHAT IS

CALLED A RESECTION, WHERE

THEY TRY TO GET THE MAJORITY

OF THE TUMOR OUT.

THE TUMOR WAS INTWINED.

THEY GOT PROBABLY 95% OF

THE TUMOR.

IT WAS NEAR HIS SPINAL

CORD.

IF THEY HAD DONE ANYTHING

MORE, THEY COULD HAVE

DAMAGED HIS SPINAL CORD, SO

THEY HAD TO STOP.

THEY CALLED US INTO A

MEETING, THE MEDICAL PEOPLE,

AND SAID THIS IS VERY

SERIOUS.

HE BASICALLY HAS A 10% TO

30% CHANCE OF LIVING.

THE TYPE OF TUMOR HE HAS

IS IS SO AGGRESSIVE, IT CAN

GROW EVEN THROUGH

CHEMOTHERAPY.

IT WAS ROUGHLY SIX ROUNDS OF

CHEMO HE WOULD NEED TO GO

THROUGH.

I JUST THOUGHT, OKAY, I'M

JUST GOING TO LISTEN TO ALL

OF THIS.

BUT I'M GOING TO CLING TO

GOD'S WORD.

I WAS GOING TO LEAN ON

JEREMIAH 29: 11, AND WE WERE

GOING TO READ THE SCRIPTURES

AND HANG OUR HEAD ON IT.

YOU DON'T LEAVE A 10-MONTH

BABY ALONE IN A HOSPITAL.

WE REALLY NEEDED TO CALL ON

OUR FRIENDS AND CHURCH

FAMILY TO HELP US OUT.

EACH ROUND OF CHEMO WOULD

BE A MONTH'S PERIOD OF

TIME.

AND YOU CAN GO HOME FOR A

COUPLE OF DAYS.

AND HE WOULD GET SICK OR RUN

A FEVER AND WE WOULD TAKE

HIM BACK.

FROM OCTOBER TO JUNE, WE

WERE HOME MAYBE A TOTAL OF

10 DAYS.

WE SPENT MANY TIMES AT THE

HOSPITAL THINKING, HE MAY BE

AN INVALID, HE MAY BE IN A

WHEELCHAIR, HE MAY NOT BE

ABLE TO HEAR.

HE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO EAT --

HE DIDN'T EAT FOR 10

MONTHS.

WE REALLY DIDN'T KNOW WHERE

WE WERE GOING TO BE AT THE

END OF THIS.

IT WAS SCARY, REALLY

SCARY.

JEREMIAH 29: 11-13.

WE PICKED THE SCRIPTURE OUT

AND I DECIDED I WOULD MAKE A

BANNER TO PUT IN THE ROOM TO

STAY FOCUSED ON THAT.

WHEN WE GOT HOME, AFTER

ALL OF THE CHEMO, LANDON WAS

IN ISOLATION FOR 90 DAYS.

WENT BACK FOR A ROUTINE

FOLLOWUP M.R.I. IN AUGUST,

AND THEY DISCOVERED THAT

THERE WAS JUST A

MISALIGNMENT AT THE TOP OF

HIS SPINE, RIGHT AT THE VERY

BASE OF HIS NECK.

BUT THEY DISCOVERED HE HAD

INSTABILITY OF THE SPINE.

THEY REALLY DID NOT WANT TO

DO THE SURGERY TO FUSE THE

SPINE BECAUSE THAT WOULD PUT

A METAL ROD IN THERE, WHICH

WOULD BLOCK THE SITE OF ANY

REMNANT OF TUMOR THAT WAS

THERE.

THEY DECIDED THEY WERE

GOING TO PUT THE BRACE ON

HIM.

SO THEY BUILT A CUSTOM MADE

BRACE FROM HIS NECK, WHICH

HE WORE BASICALLY 24/7.

PROBABLY ABOUT A YEAR AND A

HALF LATER, THE BRACE

REDUCED TO A NECK BRACE.

SO IT WAS MID-CHEST TO THE

NECK.

WE WERE GOING FOR THE

M.R.I.s EVERY THREE

MONTHS, AND EVENTUALLY THE

THREE MONTHS WENT TO SIX

MONTHS.

THE SIX MONTHS WENT TO NINE

MONTHS.

THE NINE MONTHS WENT TO A

YEAR.

AND WHAT HAS HAPPENED AS A

RESULT OF THE CERVICAL SPINE

INSTABILITY, LANDON'S BONE

HAS FUSED TOGETHER AND IT

HAS GROWN AND IT HAS

STABILIZED, AND HE NEVER

NEEDED THE SURGERY.

HE NEVER HAD IT.

HI, MOM!

SOMETIMES I JUST LOOK AT

HIM, AND I SAY THANK YOU,

GOD.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORD.

AND THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU

DID.

HE IS IN SECOND GRADE.

HE IS DOING GREAT.

I LIKE MATH AND ART.

MATH AND ART.

I LIKE MUSIC.

I LIKE COMPUTERS.

I CAN Wii BASEBALL.

I LIKE GOING OUT AND

PLAYING.

HE HAS PLAYED A COUPLE OF

SEASONS OF SOCCER.

I CAN KICK THE BALL

AROUND.

WE PLAY TENNIS, AND RIDE

BIKES.

NORMAL KID STUFF.

I STILL CAN'T RIDE

STRAIGHT.

I PRAY AT CHURCH.

I PRAY AT HOME.

I ALSO PRAY AT NIGHT.

THAT FAITH -- YOU KNOW, A

LONG TIME AGO, I WOULD HAVE

GIVEN UP.

BUT I'VE LEARNED TO REALLY,

REALLY TRUST IN GOD'S WORD

AND TO RELY ON IT.

AND WHEN I HAVE NOTHING ELSE

TO HOLD ON TO, I HOLD ON TO

GOD'S WORD BECAUSE HIS WORD

IS TRUE.

Pat: THE PLANS THAT I

HAVE FOR YOU TO GIVE YOU A

FUTURE AND A HOPE.

GOD CAN DO EXCEEDINGLY AND

ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL WE ASK

OR THINK.

Terry: THIS IS LISA WHO

LIVES IN NEWPORT NEWS,

VIRGINIA, AND SHE HAD

TERRIBLE PAIN AND SWELLING

IN HER FOOT.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM AND WE WERE

PRAYING FOR THE AUDIENCE,

AND RIGHT AS SHE GOT UP TO

LEAVE THE ROOM, SHE THOUGHT,

LORD, WHAT ABOUT ME, AT THAT

MOMENT, PAT, YOU SAID, "YOU

JUST SAID, LORD, WHAT ABOUT

ME?"

AND SHE CHECKED HER FOOT,

AND THE SWELLING HAD GONE

DOWN.

IT IS SO INTERESTING HOW GOD

KNOWS.

Pat: WE HAVE A GREAT

GOD.

HE IS EVERYWHERE, AND HE

LOVES YOU.

IN ANY EVENT, I GUESS --

LET'S SEE.

DO I HAVE SOMETHING HERE TO

SHARE AS WELL.

THIS IS FROM ABILENE,

TEXAS.

MANDY HAD A VERY BAD

INGESTION AFTER THE BIRTH OF

HER CHILD.

THE DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HER

WITH ACID REFLUX.

DUE TO HER FINANCES, SHE

COULD NOT CONTINUE TO SEE

THE DOCTOR FOR TREATMENTS.

SHE TRIED EVERYTHING.

NOTHING HELPED.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THE PROGRAM, AND SHE HEARD

TERRY GIVE A WORD, "YOU HAVE

EXTREME ACID REFLUX, AND YOU

HAVE HAD IT A LONG TIME, AND

GOD IS HEALING YOU

INSTANTLY."

THE ACID RELUX WAS GONE AND

SHE HASN'T A PROBLEM SINCE.

PRAISE GOD.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

GOD IS THERE.

HE IS THERE.

HE IS LIKE THE AIR WE

BREATHE.

HE IS THERE.

HE IS GOD, THE FATHER.

JESUS SAID, I'M GOING TO THE

FATHER.

AND HE SAYS, WHATSOEVER YOU

ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME,

THAT WILL I DO.

LET'S COME TO THE FATHER.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN

HANDS.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

FATHER, WE DON'T UNDERSTAND

THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

WONDER OF YOUR LOVE.

BUT, LORD, IT ISN'T FOR US

TO UNDERSTAND, BUT FOR US TO

BELIEVE.

AND WE BELIEVE IN YOUR

POWER.

WE BELIEVE IN YOUR GRACE.

AND RIGHT NOW, IN THE NAME

OF JESUS, WE SPEAK THE WORD

OF FAITH.

SOMEONE HAS A NECK MUSCLE.

IT IS VERY SORE.

PUT YOUR HAND ON IT RIGHT

NOW.

THE LORD JUST HEALED IT.

DO YOU FEEL THAT?

IT'S LIKE AN INTENSE PAIN.

TOUCH IT IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A BROKEN HEART

TODAY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE CAUSE

OF THAT IS, IF IT HAS

SOMETHING TO DO WITH A

RELATIONSHIP THAT HAS

ENDED.

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU JUST

ALMOST CAN'T GO ON, LIKE

THERE IS NO HOPE FOR YOUR

FUTURE.

AND TODAY THE JOY OF THE

LORD IS GOING TO ENTER INTO

YOUR HEART AND YOUR MIND,

AND YOU'RE JUST GOING TO

BEGIN TO SEE LIFE AS THE

GIFT IT IS AGAIN.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

MUSCLE IN YOUR BACK, AND

IT'S INTO YOUR NECK, AND YOU

HAVE HEADACHES AND YOU HAVE

ALL KINDS OF MUSCLE SPASMS

AND STRAIN.

BUT RIGHT NOW GOD IS TAKING

AWAY THE STRAIN.

AND YOUR BACK IS GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY WHOLE.

YOU'RE GOING TO STAND UP

STRAIGHT IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE A

DETERIORATING HELP SOCKET,

AND YOU HAVEN'T HAD ANYTHING

DONE SURGICALLY YET, BUT GOD

IS HEALING THAT CONDITION

FOR YOU.

YOU'LL NOTICE YOU'RE NOT

LIMPING AND YOU DON'T HAVE

THAT DEEP, DEEP ACHE IN YOUR

HIPBONE ANYMORE.

Pat: THE WORD DISPAIR

COMES TO ME.

MANY OF YOU ARE IN DISPAIR.

YOU HAVE LOST HOPE.

YOU DISPAIR.

GOD IS THERE TO GIVE YOU A

FUTURE AND A HOPE.

DO NOT DISPAIR.

BUT HOPE IN THE LORD, AND HE

WILL YET COME AND DELIVER

YOU FROM YOUR PROBLEMS.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: FOLKS, THAT'S ALL

OF THE TIME WE'VE GOT FOR

THOSE PRAYER REQUESTS, BUT

YOU CAN CALL IN ANY TIME

DURING THE DAY,

1-800-759-0700.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

I'M GOING TO BE ANSWERING

SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS.

Terry: YOU ARE.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

SARAH WANTS TO KNOW, "WHEN

WE GO TO HEAVEN, WILL WE

STILL BE IN LOVE WITH OUR

SPOUSE?"

STAY TUNED FOR ANOTHER

EDITION OF "BRING IT ON."

THAT'S COMING UP UP NEXT.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

LEGISLATORS IN INDIANA ARE

TIGHTENING RESTRICTIONS ON

SOME ABORTION CLINICS.

THE STATE HOUSE PASSED A

MEASURE THAT CLINICS THAT

PROVIDE DRUG INDUCED

ABORTIONS TO MEET THE SAME

STANDARDS AS THOSE WHO DO

SURGICAL PROCEDURES.

THEY SAY IT IS NOT NECESSARY

AND COULD FORCE AT LEAST ONE

INDIANA CLINIC TO STOP

DISTRIBUTING THE ABORTION

PILL.

CHRISTIANS IN NIGERIA ARE

APPEAL FOR PRAYERS AFTER A

NEW ROUND OF VIOLENCE

AGAINST BELIEVERS.

ATTACKS DURING THE EASTER

SEASON LEFT AS MANY AS 80

PEOPLE DEAD.

MORE THAN 4,000 OTHERS WERE

LEFT DISPLACED, AND SINCE

EASTER, AT LEAST 19 PEOPLE

WERE KILLED AFTER A GUNMAN

ATTACKED A PREDOMINANTLY

CHRISTIAN GROUP.

WELL, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: TIME TO ANSWER

SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS AS WITH "BRING IT

ON" TODAY.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM SARAH

WHO SAYS, "WHEN WE GET TO

HEAVEN, WILL WE NO LONGER BE

IN LOVE WITH OUR SPOUSE?

THIS SCARES ME BECAUSE I

LOVE MY SPOUSE AND I STILL

WANT TO LOVE HIM IN

ETERNITY."

Pat: SARAH, I BELIEVE

YOU'LL BE THERE TO LOVE YOUR

SPOUSE.

BUT THE LOVE WE HAVE FOR

HUMAN BEINGS IS GOING TO BE

CONSUMED BY THE LOVE WE HAVE

FOR GOD.

THE LOVE IS GOING TO BE SO

INTENSE FOR THE LORD BECAUSE

WE'LL SEE HIM AS HE IS, AND

WE'LL BE TRANSFORMED.

AND JESUS DID SAY THAT IN

HEAVEN, WE'RE GOING TO BE

LIKE THE ANGELS, SO IN A

SENSE, THERE WON'T BE ANY

MALE/FEMALE SEXUAL

ACTIVITY.

BUT WE'LL BE LIKE ANGELS.

AND, OF COURSE, THERE WILL

BE LOVE, BUT IT MAY NOT BE

THE SAME KIND OF LOVE YOU

CURRENTLY EXPERIENCE.

Terry: THIS IS WILL WHO

SAYS, "I HAVE RECENTLY BEEN

CONFUSED ABOUT THE EFFECT OF

SIN ON SALVATION.

DOES SIN STOP A PERSON FROM

GOING TO HEAVEN?

IF YES, THEN HOW?"

Pat: I'M POINTING BACK

TO DAVID, AND I QUOTED

YESTERDAY, AND I THINK IT IS

ONE WE CAN CONTINUE TO REFER

TO.

DAVID HAD SEX WITH BIR

BIRSHEBA, AND SHE GOT

PREGNANT.

AND TO COVER IT UP, HE HAD

HER HUSBAND KILLED BY OTHER

FORCES IN BATTLE, AND LIED

ABOUT THE WHOLE THING, AND

THE BIBLE SAYS AND THE LORD

WAS NOT PLEASED.

HE LOST ONE CHILD -- ONE

CHILD WAS KILLED, ANOTHER

DAUGHTER RAPED, AND ANOTHER

ONE HAD A REBELLION AGAINST

HIM.

IT WAS A HORRIBLE MESS.

BUT WHEN IT WAS ALL

FINISHED, DAVID -- IT'S IN

THE PSALMS -- HE SAYS

RESTORE UNTO ME THE JOY OF

YOURLY SALVATION, AND TAKE

NOT YOUR HOLY SPIRIT FROM

ME.

THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS STILL

THERE.

WHICH MEANT THAT HIS

ULTIMATE SALVATION WAS STILL

THERE, BUT HE DIDN'T HAVE

ANY JOY.

IF YOU GO INTO SIN, YOU'LL

LOSE YOUR JOY, YOU'LL LOSE

YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS THAT YOU

ARE A CHILD OF GOD.

DO YOU THEN LOSE YOUR

SALVATION?

NO.

BUT ONCE THAT CONSCIOUSNESS

IS REMOVED,WHO KNOWS WHERE

YOU MAY GO AFTER THAT.

AND THE WORD FOR SIN IN

GREEK IS HAMARTIA, AND IT IS

THE CONCEPT OF MISSING THE

MARK.

YOU'RE SHOOTING FOR THE

TARGET AND YOU MISS THE

MARK.

THAT'S WHAT SIN IS.

WE ALL SIN.

ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME

SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

WE ALL SIN.

BUT THE QUESTION IS GOING

INTO DELIBERATE REBELLION

AGAINST GOD --

Terry: AND ALSO

REPENTANCE BECAUSE DAVID DID

REPENT.

Pat: I HAVE SINNED AND

DONE EVIL IN YOUR SIGHT.

HE WAS TERRIBLY BROKEN UP

ABOUT WHAT HE DID.

HE KNEW HE SINNED.

THERE WAS A TIME OF

REPENTANCE.

HE DIDN'T CONTINUE IN

REBELLION.

I CAN'T SIT HERE AND SAY,

OKAY, YOU CAN KEEP ON

SINNING, DO WHATEVER YOU

WANT TO DO, AND ONCE SAVED,

ALWAYS SAVED.

I JUST DON'T BUY IT.

I JUST BELIEVE IF WE'RE

GOING -- IT IS LIKE GETTING

MARRIED.

ARE YOU GOING TO SAY TO YOUR

SPOUSE, WE JUST HAD A

WEDDING CEREMONY, WELL, HOW

MUCH ADULTERY CAN I GET AWAY

WITH BEFORE YOU LEAVE ME.

NO.

YOU WANT TO PLEASE THE

PERSON.

Terry: RELATIONSHIP,

RELATIONSHIP,

RELATIONSHIP --

Pat: IT IS,

ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: THIS IS FAITH

WHO SAYS, "AN ELDER IN MY

CHURCH TOLD ME I COULD NOT

SERVE GOD BY VOLUNTEERING IN

OUR CHURCH BECAUSE MY

HUSBAND REFUSES TO GO TO

CHURCH.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS

LOGIC.

WOULDN'T IT BE A GOOD THING

THAT I STILL WANT TO SERVE

DESPITE THE FACT MY HUSBAND

ISN'T A CHRISTIAN.

I CAN'T BE RESPONSIBLE FOR

HIS ACTIONS, BUT I AM FOR MY

OWN.

DOES THE BIBLE SAY ANYTHING

ABOUT THIS?"

Pat: OF COURSE IT

DOES.

IT TALKS ABOUT AN

UNBELIEVING SPOUSE.

THE SPOUSE CAN BE WON TO THE

LORD BY THE GODLY CONDUCT OF

HIS SPOUSE.

YOU BELONG TO THE LORD.

THE FACT THAT YOUR HUSBAND

IS AN UNGODLY CENTER DOESN'T

KEEP YOU FROM PERFORMING

SOMETHING IN THE CHURCH.

WE'RE GETTING SO MANY

LETTERS FROM PEOPLE IN THESE

CRAZY CHURCHES WHO ARE NOT

TAUGHT THE BIBLE.

READ THE WORD.

IT'S SO CLEAR.

Terry: I'VE NEVER HEARD

ANYBODY TOLD THAT BEFORE.

THAT'S REALLY SAD.

Pat: PEOPLE ARE BEING

TAUGHT THINGS THAT YOU JUST

CAN'T BELIEVE.

AND YOU'RE APPALLED BY THE

LACK OF WISDOM.

JUST READ THE BIBLE.

BUT GODLY WOMEN HAVE BEEN

THROUGHOUT HISTORY.

WOMEN OF GOD HAVE HAD

HUSBANDS WHO AREN'T

NECESSARILY GODLY, BUT THEY

ARE, AND GOD HONORS THAT.

Terry: THIS IS SWEET.

THIS IS AARON, HE SAYS, "HI,

PAT, I'M 12 YEARS OLD AND I

JUST REDEDICATED MY LIFE.

I NEVER REALLY READ MY BIBLE

BEFORE, BUT I'M STARTING

NOW.

I AM WONDERING HOW MANY

CHAPTERS DOES GOD EXPECT ME

TO READ AT A TIME.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE GOD IS

HAPPY WITH ME?"

Pat: GOD LOVES YOU, AND

YOU ARE PRECIOUS IN HIS

SIGHT REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY

LESSONS YOU READ.

LET THE BIBLE SPEAK TO YOU.

SOMETIMES YOU CAN READ ONE

LESSON AND YOU READ IT OVER

AND OVER AND IT DRAWS YOU

CLOSE TO HIM.

I RECOMMEND YOU START IN THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN.

IT IS SE EASY TO UNDERSTAND

AND IT IS A LOVE LETTER.

AND THEN GET INTO THE LETTER

OF THE APOSTLE PAUL, AND

THEN YOU CAN GET INTO THE

OLD TESTAMENT.

SOME OF THAT IS DIFFICULT TO

UNDERSTAND.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BLESS YOU

AS MUCH AS THE NEW

TESTAMENT.

Terry: OKAY, THIS IS

SEAN, WHO SAYS "MY DAUGHTER

HAS RECENTLY STARTED

DATESING AN ATHEIST AT

COLLEGE.

SHE HAS NOW LOST ALL

INTEREST IN GOING TO CHURCH,

AND OVER THE EASTER HOLIDAY,

OF ALL TIMES.

I OVERHEARD HER TRYING TO

TEACH MY 9-YEAR-OLD SON WHAT

SHE BELIEVES.

I FEAR SHE HAS LOST HER

WAY.

I NEED YOUR ADVICE ON HOW TO

HANDLE THIS DELICATE

SITUATION."

Pat: I BELIEVE THE

THING YOU NEED TO DO IS TO

LOVE HER.

TO TELL HER THAT SHE IS

WRONG, TO TELL HER THAT GOD

IS REAL, AND SHE WILL LEARN

ABOUT THE REALITY OF GOD.

AND YOU'LL NEVER STOP

PRAYING FOR HER.

I THINK THAT IS MORE THAN

ANYTHING ELSE.

Terry: AND MAYBE WITH

THE 9-YEAR-OLD, TO PRAY WITH

THE 9-YEAR-OLD FOR HIS

SISTER.

Pat: BUT DON'T LET HER

GET AWAY WITH IT.

DON'T SAY WHAT YOU THINK IS

OKAY.

AND THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO

SALVATION AN

D ALL

OF THAT

STUFF -- DON'T GO ALONG WITH

THAT.

SAY, LISTEN, GOD IS REAL,

JESUS IS REAL, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO FIND OUT.

AND I'M PRAYING FOR YOU

BECAUSE I LOVE YOU BECAUSE

I'M YOUR MOTHER, YOUR

FATHER, BUT I'M NOT GOING TO

LET YOU HOLD THOSE BELIEFS,

AND I'M CERTAINLY NOT GOING

TO LET YOU INFECT YOUR

9-YEAR-OLD BROTHER.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, SPORTSCASTER,

MUSIC LEGEND, GREAT FRIEND,

JOHN TESH IS GOING TO TELL

US WHY HE TRIED TO KILL

HIMSELF BECAUSE OF THE PAIN,

BUT WHAT STOPPED HIM.

WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 1

CORINTHIANS: "LOVE BEARS ALL

THINGS, BELIEVES ALL THINGS,

HOPES ALL THINGS, ENDURES

ALL THINGS.

LOVE NEVER FAILS."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
