WELCOME TO THE DEAD ZONE,

A PLACE WITH NO SCHOOLS OR

HOSPITALS, DECAYING

BUILDINGS AND RAMPANT

CRIME.

ALL INSIDE A MAJOR AMERICAN

CITY.

I LOVE THE CITY, BUT IT

DIDN'T LOVE ME BACK.

Lee: PLUS A SIDE OF TV

ANGER DARRY ALEXANDER YOU

WILL NEVER SEE ON FOX NEWS.

THE AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST

SHOWS OFF HER CHEF SKILLS.

AND TH

E

ELSE.

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A SHOCKING STORY

FROM CHUCK HOLTON, OUR

REPORTER.

FROM A REAL-LIFE CITY THAT

LOOKS LIKE IT CAME OUT OF

SOME DISASTER MOVIE.

TAKE A LOOK

AT

THIS.

I'VE

BEEN ALL OVER THE

WORLD IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS,

AND ASIDE FROM MOGADISHU, I

DON'T THINK I'VE SEEN ANY

PLACE THAT LOOKS THIS BAD.

THIS ACTUALLY A HISTORIC

BUILDING.

IT USED TO BE THE PLACE

WHERE PACKARDS AND

STUDABAKERS WERE MADE, BUT

TODAY IT LOOKS LIKE AN AP

APOCALYPSE MOVIE.

Pat: YOU MAY BE VERY

SURPRISED WHEN YOU FIND OUT

WHERE THAT CITY IS.

WE'VE GOT THAT FOR YOU AND

MUCH MORE.

BUT, FIRST, SHE WAS KNOWN AS

THE IRON LADY.

SHE TURNED BACK THE TIDE OF

SOCIALISM, AND TODAY PEOPLE

IN BRITAIN AND AROUND THE

WORLD REMEMBER THE GREAT

LEADERSHIP OF MARGARET

THATCHER.

Terry: MRS. THATCHER

WILL BE GIVEN A CERIMONIAL

FUNERAL WITH MILITARY HONORS

NEXT WEDNESDAY.

> DALE HERD HAS THIS LOOK

AT HER HISTORIC LEGACY.

Reporter: IT IS SAID

THAT MARGARET THATCHER

RETURNED THE GREAT, TO GREAT

BRITAIN.

SHE BURST ON TO THE

POLITICAL SCENE AS THE AGE

OF 34.

IN 1979, THATCHER SWEPT THE

CONSERVATIVE PARTY INTO

POWER, AND BECAME THE FIRST

WOMAN PRIME MINISTER.

HER POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC

FLO PHILOSOPHIES WERE

STEADFAST ECONOMIES AND FREE

MARKETS.

UNFASHIONABLE IDEAS AT THE

TIME.

I ASSUME THIS WILL ENABLE

US TO SWEEP BRITAIN CLEAN.

Reporter: THATCHER

FOUND A KINDRED SPIRIT WITH

PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN, AND

HAD A FAMOUS MOMENT WHEN SHE

INSTRUCTED A VACILLATING

GEORGE BUSH IT WAS NO TIME

TO GO WOBBLY.

SHE GAINED A NICKNAME WHICH

SHE WORE WITH PRIDE.

THE IRON LADY OF THE

WESTERN WORLD.

YOU TURN IF YOU WANT TO.

THE LADIES ARE NOT FOR

TURNING.

Reporter: SHE LED

BRITAIN TO VICTORY WHEN

ARGENTINA INVADED THE

FALKLAND ISLANDS.

STILL, THATCHER'S LEGACY

REMAINS ENTACT, IN THE

UNITED KINGDOM AND AROUND

THE WORLD.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

LEAVING THE UNITED STATES

FOR THE LAST TIME AFTER 11

AND A HALF WONDERFUL YEARS.

I AM VERY HAPPY TO LEAVE

THE UNITED KINGDOM IN A

BETTER STATE THAN WHEN WE

CAME HERE 11 AND A HALF

YEARS AGO.

Reporter: DALE HERD,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: WE MOURN THE

PASSING OF A GREAT LEADER.

SOMEBODY WHO TOOK HER

COUNTRY THROUGH TROUBLE AT

TIMES, AND REVERSED

SOCIALISM, AND SOLD OFF A

NUMBER OF STATE ASSETS THAT

WERE ACQUIRED DURING THE

ADMINISTRATION, AND BOUGHT

DOWN THE WORKERS WHO WERE

STRIKING IN THE COAL

INDUSTRY.

AN AMAZING WOMAN,

AND, QUOTE,""IT'S NOT THE

TIME TO GO WOBBLY."

SHE DIDN'T GO WOBBLY.

SHE WAS A TOUGH, TOUGH

LADY.

HERE AT HOME, PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND THE REPUBLICANS

ARE HEADING FOR A SHOWDOWN

OVER SOMETHING YOU SAY, WHY

DON'T YOU GUYS DO SOMETHING

IMPORTANT.

IT'S GUNS.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO

ABOUT GUNS?

LEE WEBB HAS MORE ON THAT

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

HERE IS LEE.

Lee: PAT, TIME MAY BE

RUNNING OUT FOR THE

PRESIDENT AND DEMOCRATS IN

CONGRESS TO PASS GUN-CONTROL

LEGISLATION.

FOUR MONTHS AFTER THE

NEWTOWN CONNECTICUT TRAGEDY,

THE PRESIDENT IS MAKING A

BIG PUSH FOR A VOTE.

BUT A GROWING NUMBER OF

REPUBLICANS PLEDGE TO STAND

IN HIS WAY.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA

MET WITH FAMILIES OF

THE SANDY HOOK VICTIMS IN

HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT.

HE SAID HE WAS DETERMINED AS

EVER TO HONOUR THEIR

CHILDREN WITH TOUGHER GUN

LAWS.

President Obama: THIS

IS NOT ABOUT ME.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS.

THIS IS ABOUT DOING THE

RIGHT THING FOR ALL THE

FAMILIES WHO ARE HERE THAT

HAVE BEEN TORN APART BY GUN

VIOLENCE.

Reporter: BUT PUBLIC

OPINION AND A GROWING NUMBER

OF LEGISLATORS ARE AGAINST

HIM.

BANS ON ASSAULT WEAPONS AND

HIGH CAPACITY AMMUNITION

CLIPS, THE PROPOSALS THAT

PRESIDENT WANTED TO ENACTED,

ARE UNLIKELY TO GAIN SENATE

APPROVAL.

AT LEAST A DOZEN REPUBLICANS

SAY THEY OPPOSE EXPANDED

BACKGROUND CHECKS.

AND THEY WANT TO PREVENT ANY

NEW LEGISLATION COMING TO

THE FLOOR FOR A VOTE.

MITCHELL MCCONNELL SAYS HE

WILL JOIN THOSE EFFORTS.

THAT COMES DESPITE ESTÁS

EFFORTS FROM MATURITY LEADER

HARRY REID.

AND HISTORY'S WARNING ABOUT

THE OPPRESSION OF A

GOVERNMENT THAT TRIES.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE WANTS

AN UP OR DOWN VOTE.

President Obama:

THEY'RE NOT JUST SAYING

THEY'LL VOTE NO ON IDEAS

THAT ALMOST ALL AMERICANS

SUPPORT, THEY'RE SAYING

THEY'LL DO EVERYTHING THEY

CAN TO EVEN PREVENT ANY

VOTES ON THESE PROVISIONS.

Reporter: A NEW CNN

POLL SHOWS ONLY 45% NOW

APPROVE OF THE PRESIDENT'S

HANDLING OF THE GUN CONTROL

DEBATE.

52% DISAPPROVE.

THE ADMINISTRATION'S PUSH

WILL CONTINUE THIS WEEK.

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN AND

ERIC HOLDER ARE SET TO MAKE

THEIR CASE WITH LAW

ENFORCEMENTS ON THE WHITE

HOUSE.

BUT DEMOCRATS ON CAPITOL

HILL ARE FACING AN UPHILL

BATTLE.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Lee: PAT, DO YOU EXPECT

LEGISLATION TO COME OUT OF

THIS?

Pat: NO, I DON'T THINK

SO.

I THINK THERE ARE TOO MANY

PEOPLE OPPOSED TO IT.

YOU WONDER WHY THE PRESIDENT

STAKES EVERYTHING ON THESE

PERIPHERAL ISSUES.

WE'VE GOT A SERIOUS CRISIS

IN AMERICA.

WE'VE GOT PEOPLE WHO ARE

UNEMPLOYED BY THE MILLIONS.

WE'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF

PROBLEMS FACING US.

AND HE WANTS TO SPEND WEEK

AFTER WEEK AFTER WEEK

HASSLING PEOPLE ABOUT HOW

MANY CLIPS -- I MEAN, HOW

MANY BULLETS IN A MAGAZINE,

AND WHAT CAN BE SOLD.

THE TRUTH IS, LEE, THIS LAW

ISN'T GOING TO STOP

CRIMINALS.

CRIMINALS ARE GOING TO GET

GUNS.

THEY'LL BUY THEM SE SUR RUP

SURUPTISHLY.

AND THIS LAW IS NOT GOING TO

MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE.

IF THEY REALLY WANT TO STOP

LITTLE CHILDREN FROM GETTING

SHOT IN SCHOOLS, THEY OUGHT

TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT HEALTH

CARE.

THE PEOPLE WHO DO THIS

SHOOTING, NORMALLY -- NOT

NORMALLY, BUT THEY'RE

USUALLY UNDER THE INFLUENCE

OF SOME KIND OF PSYCHEDELIC

DRUGS.

THEY HAVE BEEN PRESCRIBED

DRUGS BY THEIR HEALTH CARE

PROVIDER, AND THEY ARE A

LITTLE PSYCHOTIC, OR A GREAT

DEAL PSYCHOTIC.

AND IT IS THE CRAZIES WHO

ARE DOING THIS, AND IT IS

NOT THE GUNS WHO ARE

SHOOTING PEOPLE.

IT IS PEOPLE WHO ARE

MENTALLY UNSTABLE, WHO ARE

IN CHARGE OF THE GUNS.

AND THEY CAN GET THE GUNS

ANY PLACE THEY WANT TO.

AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO STOP

IT BY THIS LEGISLATION.

SO IT IS JUST A COLOSSAL

WASTE OF TIME IN THE MIDST

OF TROUBLE, WHEN WE'VE GOT

TROUBLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

AND THE LEADERSHIP OF THIS

NATION SHOULD BE PAYING TO

THAT.

LEE?

Lee: SPEAKING OF WASTE,

PAT, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

IS WASTING UNCOUNTED

BILLIONS OF TAXPAYERS'

DOLLARS BECAUSE OF

OVERLAPPING PROGRAMS.

THE GOVERNMENT'S OWN GENERAL

ACCOUNTING OFFICE ISSUED

THAT FINDING.

THEY FOUND 31 AREAS OF

DUPLICATED SPENDING.

AT LEAST 23 FEDERAL AGENCIES

RUN HUNDREDS OF PROGRAMS TO

SUPPORT RENEWABLE ENERGY.

AGENCIES SPEND BILLIONS OF

DATA FOR MAPS, WITHOUT

CHECKING TO SEE IF ANY OTHER

GOVERNMENT AGENCY ALREADY

HAS MAPS THEY COULD USE.

AND EACH BRANCH OF THE ARMED

SERVICES HAS CAMOUFLAGE

UNIFORMS WITHOUT SHARING

THEM WITH THE OTHER

BRANCHES.

AND OKLAHOMA REPUBLICAN

SENATOR TOM COBURN SAYS THE

BIG PROBLEM THE G.O.A. HAD,

THEY CAN'T ADEQUATELY

ESTIMATE THEIR SAVINGS

BECAUSE AGENCIES CAN TELL

THEM HOW MUCH THEY'RE

SPENDING.

WE'RE A MESS.

AMEN, PAT.

Pat: I WORKED WITH

PETER GRACE, AND HE DID "THE

GRACE COMMISSION," AND PETER

SAID HE WENT TO THEN

PRESIDENT REAGAN, AND REAGAN

SAID I WANT YOU TO TELL ME

HOW MANY FEDERAL WORKERS

THERE ARE IN CALIFORNIA --

THAT'S MY HOME STATE.

AND PETER GRACE, AND THE

GRACE COMMISSION, WITH ALL

OF THE RESOURCES THEY HAD,

ASKED AND ASKED AND ASKED,

AND THEY NEVER COULD FIND

OUT.

BECAUSE NOBODY IN GOVERNMENT

COULD TELL THEM HOW MANY

AMERICANS WERE EMPLOYED IN

CALIFORNIA.

THEY COULDN'T FIND THAT

ANSWER.

FOR OBAMA TO SAY HE IS NOT

WORRIED ABOUT DEFICITS?

THERE IS WASTE AT AN UNCON

UNCONSCIONABLE LEVEL.

AND THEY KEEP SAYING WE

CAN'T CUT THE POOR AND THE

NEEDY, AND WE'VE GOT TO SHUT

THE WHITE HOUSE TOURS DOWN,

AND WE'LL TURN THE LIGHTS

OFF THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT,

AND WE'LL KLAUS DOW CLOSE

DOWN THE STATE PARKS OR THE

FEDERAL PARKS -- IT IS

RIDICULOUS WHAT THEY'RE

DOING WHEN THEY COULD

SERIOUSLY ROLL UP THEIR

SLEEVES AND SAY LET'S STOP

WASTE.

LET'S STOP THROWING

TAXPAYERS' MONEY AWAY

BECAUSE WE'RE BORROWING AT

LEAST 20 CENTS ON EVERY

DOLLAR FROM THE CHINESE OR

THE JAPANESE -- WHATEVER.

IT IS APPALLING, BUT THEY

KEEP ON DOING IT.

I DON'T KNOW WHY.

LEE?

Lee: SECRETARY OF STATE

JOHN KERRY IS PUSHING A

MIDDLE EAST PEACE PLAN THAT

WOULD REQUIRE ISRAEL TO GIVE

UP PART OF JERUSALEM.

AND ISRAEL WOULD HAVE TO

PULL OUT A TER TO TERRITORY

IT WON BACK IN 1967.

GARY SAYS THE AGREEMENT

WOULD INCLUDE GUARANTEES OF

SECURITY FOR ISRAEL AND

POSSIBLE CHANGES IN BORDER.

KERRY MET WITH PALESTINIAN

PRESIDENT MAHMOUD ABBAS

SUNDAY, AND HE TALKED WITH

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU MONDAY.

PAT, WHERE DO YOU THINK THIS

IS HEADED?

Pat: I THINK IT IS

HEADED FOR DISASTER FOR THE

UNITED STATES.

YOU KNOW, GOD SAYS THEY

DIVIDED MY LAND.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

DIVIDING GOD'S LAND.

HE SAID, THIS IS MY LAND.

I GAVE IT TO ABRAHAM AND HIS

DESCENDENTS, AND I DON'T

WANT IT TAKEN AWAY FROM

THEM.

AND JERUSALEM IS THE ETERNAL

CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.

AND FOR THE UNITED STATES TO

GET INTO A DEAL WHERE

THEY'RE TRYING TO SPLIT

JERUSALEM AND TAKE IT AWAY

FROM THE ISRAELIS AND SPLIT

UP THEIR CAPITAL -- A HUGE

MISTAKE.

YOU'RE ASKING FOR THE WRATH

OF ALMIGHTY GOD TO FALL ON

THIS NATION.

AND WHEN IT FALLS, IT WON'T

BE FUN.

IT WON'T BE FUN.

AND WE SHOULD DO EVERYTHING

WE CAN TO RESTRAIN OUR

LEADERS FROM THIS COURSE OF

FOLLY, AND IT IS A COURSE OF

FOLLY, AND IT WILL RESULT IN

TERRIBLE SUFFERING FOR

PEOPLE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, AUTHORITIES

IN IRAN ARE DENYING MEDICAL

TREATMENT FOR THE AMERICAN

PASTOR WHO IMPRISONED

THERE.

MONTHS OF BEATINGS BY

JAILERS HAVE LEFT SAEED

ABEDINI WITH INTERNAL

BLEEDING.

A FEW WEEKS AGO IRANIAN

AUTHORITIES PROMISED THE

PASTOR HE WOULD RECEIVE

MEDICAL ATTENTION.

HE WAS TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL,

BUT THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE SAYS HE WAS

RETURNED TO PRISON WITHOUT

RECEIVING TREATMENT.

THE ACLJ SAYS THE PASTOR'S

HEALTH IS DETERIORATING.

FOR MORE ON THIS STORY AND

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP, WE

INVITE YOU TO GO TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

NORTH KOREA IS WARNING

FOREIGNERS TO LEAVE SOUTH

KOREA BECAUSE IT SAYS THE

TWO COUNTRIES ARE ON THE

BRINK OF THE WAR.

OBSERVERS SAY THE THREATS

ARE MOSTLY BLUSTER, BASED AS

BOLSTERING THE IMAGE OF KIM

JONG UN.

STILL, AMERICA'S ALLIES IN

THE REGION ARE TAKING

PRECAUTIONS.

JAPAN HAS DEPLOYED TWO

INTERCEPTOR MISSILES, AND

THE NORTH HAS ALREADY SHUT

DOWN A JOINT INDUSTRIAL

COMPLEX THAT IT SHARED WITH

THE SOUTH.

WINTER IS SUPPOSEDLY OVER,

BUT ANOTHER SNOWSTORM IS

SLAMMING INTO THE MIDWEST

TODAY.

IT STARTED AS A WINDSTORM

THAT TOPPLED TREES AND

SNAPPED POWER LINES IN

CALIFORNIA.

GUSTS TOPPED TO 80 MILES PER

HOUR IN PARTS OF SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA.

THAT SAME BLUSTERY COLD

FRONT SPREAD FROM MONTANA TO

NEW MEXICO.

UP TO 20 INCHES OF SNOW

EXPECTED IN THE MOUNTAINS OF

COLORADO, AND UP TO A FOOT

OF SNOW IS PREDICTED FOR

DENVER.

MANY SCHOOLS THERE ARE

CLOSED, AND FLIGHTS

CANCELLED, AND TORNADOES ARE

POSSIBLE, PAT, ALL THE WAY

FROM NEBRASKA TO TEXAS

THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

Pat: AND WE ARE HERE IN

SUNNY VIRGINIA, WHERE WE

THINK THE TEMPERATURES MAY

BE INTO THE MIDDLE 80s.

Terry: WOW!

Pat: SO, FOLKS, COME ON

OVER.

YOU'RE WELCOME IN THE OLD

DOMINION.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, WE'LL

VISIT THE DEAD ZONE, WHERE

CRIME IS THE ONLY GROWTH

INDUSTRY, AND MURDER IS AN

EVERYDAY OCCURRENCE.

HOW DO YOU KEEP A CITY

SAFE THAT HAS NO TAX BASE,

AND THE POPULATION IS

RUNNING OUT THE BACK DOOR,

THE FRONT DOOR, AND THE SIDE

DOOR.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

HOW DO YOU STEM THAT TIDE?

WHAT DO YOU DO TO STOP THE

BLEEDING.

Terry: WE'LL SEE WHAT

IS BEING DONE TO SAVE THIS

AMERICAN CITY WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: THE DEAD ZONE, THE

WALKING DEAD, ZOMBIES.

THAT'S WHAT THEY HAVE IN THE

MOVIES.

AND YOU SAY THIS IS A SET, A

MOVING PICTURE SET, OR

FICTION, BUT THERE IS A CITY

IN AMERICA THAT LOOKS LIKE

THE WAR ZONE OF A THIRD

WORLD COUNTRY, AND PEOPLE

LIVING THERE ARE LIKE THE

WALKING DEAD.

I'M TALKING ABOUT DETROIT,

MICHIGAN, ONE OF AMERICA'S

MOST SUCCESSFUL CITIES.

TODAY IT IS ON THE BRINK OF

BANKRUPTCY.

BUILDINGS ARE IN RUINS, AND

THE RESIDENTS WHO COULD GET

OUT ARE LONG GONE.

OUR REPORTER, CHUCK HOLTON,

TOOK THIS TRIP TO DETROIT,

U.S.A.

Reporter: SOME CALL

THIS THE DEAD ZONE.

IN THE AREA OF NEAR COMPLETE

DESTRUCTION, MANY MILES

ACROSS, NO SCHOOLS OR

HOSPITALS AND FEW PUBLIC

SERVICES.

CRIME IS THE ONLY GROWTH

INDUSTRY HERE WITH A MURDER

RATE HIGHER THAN THAT OF

COLOMBIA.

THIS ISN'T SYRIA,

AFGHANISTAN, IT IS INNER

CITY AMERICA.

WELCOME TO DETROIT.

NO POLICE.

CITIZENS ARE LEAVING BECAUSE

CRIME IS VERY HIGH.

THOSE WHO CAN LEAVE, OR WHO@o

ARE ABLE TO LEAVE, THEY ARE@o@o

LEAVING.

OF COURSE, THERE ARE SOME

WHO CANNOT.

Reporter: IT IS HARD TO

BELIEVE THERE ARE PLACES IN

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

THAT LOOK LIKE THIS.

I'VE BEEN ALL OVER THE WORLD

IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS, AND

ASIDE FROM MOGADISHU, I

DON'T THINK I'VE SEEN ANY

PLACE THAT LOOKS THIS BAD.

THIS IS IS ACTUALLY AN

HISTORIC BUILDING.

IT USED TO BE THE PLACE

WHERE PACKARDS AND

STUDABAKERS WERE MADE.

TODAY IT LOOKS LIKE A ZOMBIE

APOCALYPSE MOVIE.

WHILE THERE IS PLENTY OF

DISAGREEMENT ON THE CAUSE,

THERE IS NO QUESTION ON THE

RESULT.

MANY URBAN AREAS ARE

BECOMING VIRTUAL

WASTELANDS.

HERE IN DETROIT, HALF OF THE

CITIZENS ARE FUNCTIONALLY

ILLITERATE, AND THE TRUE

RATE OF JOBLESSNESS IS OVER

50%.

THE CITY HAS SO FAR AVOIDED

BANKRUPTCY, BUT ITS

LONG-TERM DEBT IS GREATER

THAN ZIMBABWE OR EL

SALVADOR.

THE LACK OF JOBS HAS LEAD TO

DEEP CUTS IN CITY SERVICES,

INCLUDING FIRE AND POLICE.

SERGEANT JOHN BENEFIT HAS

BEEN A DETROIT CITY COP FOR

16 YEARS.

WE'VE LOST ON THE POLICE

OFFICERS, A THOUSAND

OFFICERS WHO HAVEN'T BEEN

REPLACED.

Reporter: THOSE WHO

REMAIN SAY THEY CAN'T

PROTECT THE CITY, WHICH NOW

HOW THE HIGHEST RATE OF

VIOLENT CRIME IN AMERICA.

HOW DO YOU KEEP A CITY

SAFE THAT HAS NO TAX BASE,

AND THE POPULATION IS

RUNNING OUT THE BACK DOOR,

THE FRONT DOOR, AND THE SIDE

DOOR.

HOW DO YOU STEM THAT TIDE?

WHAT DO YOU DO TO STOP THE

BLEEDING?

Reporter: I'M STANDING

ONLY 100 YARDS INSIDE THE

DETROIT CITY LIMITS.

RIGHT HERE I CAN SEE OVER A

DOZEN HOMES THAT ARE EITHER

ABANDONED OR BURNED OUT.

THEY SAY HERE IN DETROIT,

THERE ARE OVER 45,000 HOMES

LIKE THAT.

BUT THE ROOT CAUSE MAY HAVE

LESS TO DO WITH THE ECONOMIC

DOWNTURN, AND MORE TO DO

WITH GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION.

MORE GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE

HASN'T HELPED.

SEVERAL DETROIT COMPANIES

RECEIVED BAILOUT FUNDS

TOTALLY NEARLY $100 BILLION,

YET DETROIT STILL HAS THE

HIGHEST RATES OF POVERTY AND

WELFARE DEPENDENCY IN THE

NATION.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH

LONGER I CAN HANG ON.

UP TO THIS POINT, IT HAS

BEEN MY COMMITMENT, MY LOVE

OF THE CITY, MY LOVE OF THE

COMMUNITY.

THIS IS MY HOME.

BUT AS ONE OF MY CO-WORKERS

SAID, YOU KNOW, WHEN SHE

LEFT -- SHE SAID, I LOVED

THE CITY, BUT IT DIDN'T LOVE

ME BACK.

Reporter: WHERE THE

GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED,

PRIVATE CHARITIES ARE

STEPPING IN.

ONE OF THE LARGEST, DETROIT

RESCUE MISSION MINISTRIES,

WHICH PROVIDES MEALS AND

SHELTER FOR THOUSANDS OF

HOMELESS EVERY DAY.

THE DETROIT RESCUE

MINISTRY STARTED AS A SOUP

KITCHEN.

AND NOW WE HAVE PROGRESSED

TO BEING NOT ONLY AN

EMERGENCY SHELTER, BUT ALSO

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING,

PERMANENT HOUSING, A

TREATMENT CENTER FOR THOSE

SUFFERING FROM DRUG AND

SUBSTANCE ABUSE OR MENTAL

HEALTH ISSUES, AS WELL AS WE

HAVE DIFFERENT PROGRAMS THAT

HELP TO REBUILD THE CITY.

Reporter: THESE

PROGRAMS ARE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE FOR PEOPLE LIKE

DWAYNE TABB, WHO SERVES AS

THE FACILITY'S SUPERVISOR.

10 YEARS AGO, I CAME TO

THE DETROIT RESCUE MISSION.

I WAS HOMELESS, I WAS LOST,

I WAS DRUG-ADDICTED.

I WENT IN THE 90-DAY

TREATMENT.

I WENT TO SCHOOL, I GOT A

SOCIALIST DEGREE, AND I

CONTINUED AND GOT A

BACHELOR'S DEGREE, AND

CONTINUED TO GET MY

MASTER'S.

SO I KNOW THE DETROIT RESCUE

MISSION SAVES LIVES.

Reporter: IN SO DOING,

THE DETROIT MISSION ISN'T

ONLY SERVING UP FOOD AND

CHETT, BUT SOMETHING BETTER

WHICH THEY BELIEVE CAN TURN

THE TIDE.

NOT ONLY DO WE PROVIDE

HELP, WE ADMINISTER THE WORD

OF GOD.

Reporter: FROM DETROIT,

MICHIGAN, I'M CHUCK HOLTON

FOR CBN NEWS.

Pat: THAT'S THE PRICE

OF MISMANAGEMENT.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

PUT THE WRONG PEOPLE IN

CHARGE OF A CITY, AND THEY

THINK IT IS A PIGGYBANK THEY

CAN LOOT, AND THEY DON'T

STOP LOOTING AND THEY DON'T

KNOW HOW TO BUILD.

THE WHOLE IDEA IS YOU TAX

THE RICH.

THAT'S THE CRY WE HEAR ABOUT

IN WASHINGTON.

LET'S GET THE FAIR SHARE

AWAY FROM THE RICH, AND LOOK

WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

WELL, DETROIT IS AN EXAMPLE

OF WHAT HAPPENS.

Terry: YES, BECAUSE

THAT CITY HAS A GREAT

HISTORY.

Pat: OF COURSE IT

DOES.

YOU GO TO THE SURROUNDING

SUBURBS AROUND DETROIT, AND

THERE ARE SOME PROSPEROUS

AREAS, BEAUTIFUL STUFF.

BUT THE INNER CITY IS IN

CHAOS.

THEY VOTE IN THE SCOUNDRELS,

AND THE SCOUNDRELS LOOT THE

CITIES, AND AWAY THEY GO.

Terry: UP NEXT, THE

CARDINAL SWORD PASSED IT TO

THE WOLVERINES TO WIN THE

CHAMPIONSHIP.

AND THEIR RALLYING CRY IS

WIN FOR WEAR.

I'M REALLY, REALLY

STARTING TO APPRECIATE WHAT

HE DID.

Terry: STAY TUNED FOR A

SIDE OF MORE FINAL FOUR

PLAYERS THAT YOU WON'T SEE

ANYWHERE ELSE.

Pat: WELL, IT WENT ON

FOR WEEKS.

THERE WAS THE ROUND OF 16,

THE ROUND OF 8, BE THE AND

THEN THE FINAL 4, AND THEN

THERE WAS LAST NIGHT WHEN

TWO OF THE GREATEST

BASKETBALL TEAMS IN THE

NATION SQUARED OFF IN THE

NCAA'S 75th CHAMPIONSHIP

GAME.

LOUISVILLE AND MICHIGAN

BATTLED FOR BASKETBALL'S

COVETED CROWN IN A SEESAW

BATTLE.

OUR SPORTS REPORTER, WES

RICKER WAS ON HAND.

Reporter: THE NUMBER

FOUR MICHIGAN WOLVERINES

FACING OFF AGAINST THE

LOUISVILLE CARDINALS.

THOSE TEAMS HOPING TO

CAPTURE THEIR FIRST

CHAMPIONSHIP SINCE THE

'80s.

A BIG DAY FOR RICK, THEY

ANNOUNCED HIS INDUCTION INTO

THE BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME

EARLIER.

WATCH THIS, THERE IS THE

THREE, AND THEN ANOTHER ONE

FROM DEEP, FOLLOWED BY

ANOTHER ONE AND ANOTHER

ONE.

MICHIGAN GOES UP BIG.

BUT THE CARDINALS HAD AN

ANSWER.

LUKE FORCED HIS OWN TO SPARK

A LOUISVILLE COMEBACK.

ONE CAP BY THIS ALLEY-OOP TO

PUT THEM ON THE TOP.

IN THE SECOND HALF, BOTH

TEAMS TRADED BASEBALL,

NEITHER TEAM GIVING AN

INCH.

AND THEN A QUESTIONABLE

CALL.

AND A FOUL CALLED AGAINST

MICHIGAN, AND THE CARDINALS

START BUILDING THE LEAD.

WHILE SPIKE WAS QUIET IN THE

SECOND HALF, LUKE HANCOCK

WAS NOT.

PUTTING LOUISVILLE UP BY

10.

MICHIGAN MADE A RUN, BUT IT

WAS TOO LITTLE TOO LATE, AND

LUKE AND CASEY GO TO

VICTORY.

I HAVE TO THANK MY LORD

AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.

HE BLESSES US WITH THESE

OPPORTUNITIES.

I AM JUST THANKFUL TO GOD.

Reporter: THE WIN

CAPPED AN EMOTIONAL WIN FOR

THE CARDINALS, WHO CAME IN

WITH A RALLYING CRY "WIN FOR

WEAR."

RECENTLY I HAD A CHANCE TO

SPEAK WITH WEAR, WHO SAID

THE INJURY WAS ALL PART OF

GOD'S PLAN.

GOD PUTS YOU THROUGH

OBSTACLES THAT HE FEELS LIKE

YOU COULD FACE.

IF HE DIDN'T FEEL LIKE I

COULD GO THROUGH THIS, HE

WOULDN'T HAVE PUT ME THROUGH

IT, HONESTLY.

HE SHOWED ME A LOT.

Reporter: AFTER WEAR

BROKE HIS LEG, THE CARDINALS

HAD TO TURN TO TIM

HENDERSON.

WHO AVERAGED ONLY THREE

GAMES PER YEAR THIS SEASON.

TIM EXPLAINED WHAT IT WAS

LIKE GETTING THE CALL.

I KEPT PRAYING, GOD,

YOU'VE GOT TO HELP ME

BECAUSE I'M REALLY OUT OF

IT.

HE GOT ME THROUGH IT.

Reporter: ON SATURDAY

NIGHT, LOUISVILLE WAS DOWN

BY 12, AND IT WAS TIM

HENDERSON WHO NAILED

BACK-TO-BACK 3s, SETTING

THE STAGE FOR AN EPIC

COMEBACK AND SAVING THE

CARDINAL SEASON.

I WAS JUST PRAYING ALL

WEEK.

PEOPLE WERE SAYING, WE'RE

PRAYING FOR YOU.

I FEEL LIKE ALL THAT HELPED

ME AND GAVE ME A SENSE OF

CALMNESS.

Reporter: HE GOT 18

POINTS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP

GAME, AND MADE SOME CLUTCH

PLAYS DOWN THE STRETCH, JUST

LIKE HE DID IN THE

SEMIFINALS.

I JUST KEPT ON ASKING GOD

TO HELP US OUT, AND HE DID.

Reporter: HE WEARS THE

NUMBER THREE TO WEAR THE

TRINITY, BASKETBALL IS WAY

OF HONORING GOD.

PLAYING FOR HIM IS REALLY

IS BLESSING.

I KNOW WITHOUT HIM, I

WOULDN'T BE HERE TODAY.

Reporter: STEPHEN'S

THOUGHTS WERE ECHOED BY ALL

PLAYERS.

CARTER WILLIAM CITED

PHILLIPIANS 4: 13, AND SAYS

HE THANKS GOD EVERY DAY.

JESUS IS IS VERY

IMPORTANT TO ME.

IF IT WASN'T FOR HIM AND THE

GIFT GOD GAVE ME I WOULDN'T

BE HERE TODAY.

Reporter: BRANDON TRISH

HAS BEEN THROUGH THE UPS AND

DOWNS OF A LONG SEASON.

EVEN WHEN SYRACUSE WAS GOING

THROUGH A LOSING STREAK, HE

NEVER GOT DISCOURAGED.

INSTEAD, HE WAS THANKFUL FOR

THE CHALLENGE.

WHEN GOD GIVES US THE

TOUGHEST, WE BATTLE

THROUGH.

FOR US TO GO THROUGH WHAT

WE'VE BEEN GOING THROUGH, I

THINK IT IS A TESTAMENT TO

OUR PAST.

Reporter: SYRACUSE CAME

INTO THE TOURNAMENT FACING A

VERY DIFFERENT PATH IN WATCH

WICHITA STATE.

THEY PROVED THAT THEY COULD

PLAY THE BEST, AN

OPPORTUNITY THEY THANKED GOD

FOR.

WE PRAY EVERY DAY BECAUSE

HE KNOWS OUR HEARTS.

HE SEES HOW PASSIONATE WE

ARE.

AND I FEEL LIKE HE HAS

REWARDED US TO BE

SUCCESSFUL.

IT IS A GREATER POWER

THAN WHAT PEOPLE HEAR.

AND THE THINGS WE'RE ABLE TO

DO, I FEEL LIKE SOMEBODY

ELSE HAS HAD A HAND IN

THAT.

Reporter: THE MICHIGAN

WOLVERINES MADE IT TO THE

CHAMPIONSHIP GAME FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN 20 YEARS,

THANKS TO A COUPLE OF KEY

PLAYERS, INCLUDING NATIONAL

PLAYER OF THE YEAR, TRAY

BIRD.

HE IS QUICK TO SAY THAT IT

IS NOT BECAUSE OF HIS

TALENTS ALONE.

HE HAS ALLOWED US TO GET

HERE.

I TRULY BELIEVE THAT IT JUST

GOES TO SHOW HOW GOOD HE

IS.

Reporter: WHILE TRAY

SPENT THE SEASON TERRORIZING

OPPONENTS, MICHIGAN WAS

AIDED BY TWO NEWCOMERS,

MITCH McCLEA McCLEARY,

AND --

I'M BLESSED TO HAVE THIS

OPPORTUNITY.

HE LAS BEEN WITH ME THROUGH

STRUGGLES.

I THINK I'M FORTUNATE TO

HAVE HIM IN MY LIFE AND DO

THE THINGS I HAVE

ACCOMPLISHED.

I THANK GOD FOR EVERY

MOMENT I HAVE OUT THERE.

I KNOW MANY GUYS WHO DON'T

HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY.

I'M JUST THANKFUL FOR

BEING ABLE TO PLAY.

Reporter: THEY TUNE IN

TO THE FINAL FOUR TO SEE THE

BEST TEAMS COMPETE AT THE

HIGHEST LEVELS, COLLEGE

BASKETBALL.

BUT TO SOME OF THE PLAYERS

THERE, IT IS MORE THAN A

GAME; IT IS A PLATFORM TO

SHARE THEIR FAITH WITH

OTHERS, AND TO TELL THEM HOW

TO HELP THEM GET TO THE

TOP.

GOD IS WITH YOU WHEREVER

YOU GO.

THAT REALLY HELPS ME BECAUSE

A LOT OF TIMES I FEEL REALLY

ALONE OUT HERE, JUST GOING

THROUGH A HARD PRACTICE, AND

GOD HAS MY BACK AND ALWAYS

WILL BE HERE WITH ME.

IT COMPELS ME TO KEEP

WORKING OUT, WHEN YOU'RE

DOWN AND YOU'RE WORRIED

ABOUT BEING ABLE TO MAKE IT

THROUGH, YOU'RE ABLE TO RELY

ON YOUR FAITH.

Reporter: BUT FOR MANY

OF THE PLAYERS, IT WASN'T

JUST ABOUT BRINGING HOME A

CHAMPIONSHIP, BUT TO BRING

GLORY TO THE ONE WHO GAVE

THEM A CHANCE.

WITHOUT FAITH, THEN YOU

CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

SO, YOU KNOW, FOR ME TO HAVE

MY ABILITIES AND MY TALENTS

AND MY CAPABILITIYS, IT HAS

ALL BEEN BECAUSE OF JESUS

CHRIST.

I HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING,

AND NEVER COULD DO ANYTHING,

TO DESERVE HIS LOVE.

BUT HE GAVE HIMSELF UP FOR

ME, THROUGH HIS OWN GRACE,

SO THAT I COULD BE SAVED.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

SOMETHING?

MANY PEOPLE IN THE OLD DAYS

USED TO SAY RELIGION IS FOR

LITTLE OLD LADIES AND

CHILDREN.

IT'S NOT FOR BIG, STRONG

MEN.

WELL, MORE AND MORE WE'RE

SEEING PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL

PLAYERS, BIG, TOUGH

BRUISERS, WHO HUMBLY BOW

THEIR KNEE TO JESUS.

AND HERE YOU'VE GOT A WHOLE

CREW OF CHAMPIONS, FROM

MICHIGAN AND FROM

LOUISVILLE, WHO ARE SAYING

IT'S GOD.

IT'S JESUS..

HE'S THE ANSWER.

DO YOU EVER GIVE THANKS FOR

THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE

HEALTH?

DO YOU GIVE THANKS FOR THE

FACT YOU HAVE FOOD ON THE

TABLE?

DO YOU GIVE THANKS THAT YOU

LIVE IN A COUNTRY THAT IS

FREE?

DO YOU GIVE THANKS FOR YOUR

FAMILY, FOR ALL OF THE

THINGS HE'S DONE FOR YOU?

DO YOU STOP AND THANK HIM,

NOT ONLY FOR ATHLETIC

ABILITY, BUT JUST FOR THE

BREATH YOU BREATHE?

I THINK THAT'S WHERE ALL OF

US PERHAPS FALL SHORT.

WE GET SO ABSORBED IN THE

DAILY ACTIVITIES OF OUR LIFE

THAT WE DON'T PAUSE TO SAY,

LORD, THANK YOU.

AND RIGHT NOW I THINK WE

OUGHT TO STOP AND JUST THANK

THE LORD.

LORD, WE THANK YOU.

WE PRAISE YOU.

THANK YOU FOR LIFE.

THANK YOU FOR HEALTH.

THANK YOU FOR NOURISHMENT.

THANK YOU FOR OUR FAMILY AND

LOVED ONES.

THANK YOU FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE IN A

FREE LAND.

AND THANK YOU, LORD, MORE

THAN ANYTHING ELSE, THAT YOU

DIED THAT WE MIGHT LIVE.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

WE PRAISE YOUR NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, WE'VE GOT YOUR

E-MAIL.

ANNA SAYS, "I'M HAVING A

HARD TIME BALANCING MY

LIFE.

WHO DO I MAKE A PRIORITY, MY

SPOUSE OR MY CHILDREN."

AND LATER ON, BUS TV ANCHOR

DARI ALEXANDER SHOWS OFF HER

CHEF SKILLS.

HER QUICK AND CLEAN DIET IS

COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

AN AUTOPSY CONFIRMS THAT THE

SON OF RICK WARREN DIED OF A

SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT

WOUND.

MATTHEW WARREN TOOK HIS LIFE

ON FRIDAY.

HIS FAMILY SAYS THE

27-YEAR-OLD HAS LONG

SUFFERED FROM DEEP

DEPRESSION AND SUICIDAL

THOUGHTS.

THEY'RE ASKING FOR PRAYERS

DURING WHAT IS, OF COURSE, A

VERY DIFFICULT TIME.

NUDITY AND CURSING MAY SOON

BE ALLOWED ON BROADCAST TV.

THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS

COMMISSION WANTS TO LOOSEN

RESTRICTIONS ON NUDITY AND

WORDS, INCLUDING THE "F"

WORD.

IT WOULD EVEN OCCUR DURING

HOURS WHERE CHILDREN MAY BE

WATCHING.

IN THE YEARS AFTER THE JANET

JACKSON SUPER BOWL INCIDENT

THEY FACED A LARGE NUMBERS

OF COMPLAINTS, AND THEN THE

F.C.C. RULED THAT THE

INDECENCY RULE WAS NOT CLEAR

ENOUGH.

THEY WANT THEM TO JUST FOCUS

ON WHAT THEY CALL THE WORST

CASES.

THEY'RE TAKING PUBLIC INPUT

ON THE MATTER THIS MONTH.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO

REGISTER YOUR OPINION AND

GET THE LATEST STORIES FROM

CBN NEWS, JUST GO TO

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, IT'S TIME

TO ANSWER SOME OF THE E-MAIL

QUESTIONS YOU SENT IN.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM ANNA, WHO SAYS, "WHAT

DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT

CHILDREN AND SPOUSES?

SHOULD I PUT MY SPOUSE AHEAD

OF N MY CHILDREN, OR ARE

THEY EQUAL?

I'M HAVING A HARD TIME

JUGGLING BOTH."

Pat: ANNA, I'LL TELL

YOU WHAT.

BEFORE THERE WERE CHILDREN,

THERE WERE YOU AND YOUR

SPOUSE.

YOU COME FIRST BECAUSE YOU

ARE FIRST.

A HUSBAND IS TO LOVE THIS

WIFE LIKE JESUS CHRIST LOVES

THE CHURCH, GAVE HIMSELF FOR

HER.

THE WIFE, IN TURN, IS TO

RESPECT AND HONOR THE

HUSBAND, AS SARAH DID

ABRAHAM, CALLING HIM LORD.

THE PARENTS ARE TO BRING UP

THEIR CHILDREN IN NURTURE

AND ADMONITION OF THE LORD.

THEY'RE TO LOVE THEM, CARE

FOR THEM.

NOT OVERCORRECT THEM, BUT

OBVIOUSLY DEAL WITH THEM.

BUT DON'T MAKE THE MISTAKE

OF THINKING YOUR CHILDREN

ARE ON THE PAR WITH YOUR

SPOUSE.

IN ABOUT 20, 21, 22, 23

YEARS, THE CHILDREN LEAVE

AND THEY ARE GONE.

THEY GET A SEPARATE FAMILY.

THEY HAVE THEIR OWN

CHILDREN, AND THEY COME

VISIT YOU THREE OR FOUR

TIMES A YEAR.

Terry: YUP.

Pat: BUT YOU'VE STILL

GOT YOUR SPOUSE.

SO DON'T NEGLECT YOUR

HUSBAND OR YOUR WIFE.

THEY ARE THE ONES THAT WILL

GO THROUGH 30 YEARS, 40

YEARS, 50 YEARS WITH YOU.

Terry: GOOD ADVICE.

MICHELLE SAYS, "THROUGHOUT

THE BIBLE I SEE SEVERAL

PASSAGES ABOUT PRAYERS BEING

ANSWERED.

I'VE BEEN PRAYING FOR MEYER

MARRIAGE SEVERAL TIMES A DAY

FOR YEARS.

MY MARRIAGE IS FALLING

APART.

I FEEL LIKE MY PRAYERS WILL

NEVER BE ANSWERED.

WHAT'S NEXT?

HOW DO I MAKE GOD LISTEN TO

ME?"

Pat: WELL, I DON'T

THINK YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE

GOD DO ANYTHING.

BUT I THINK GOD HEARS YOU.

THE QUESTION IS: WHAT'S

GOING ON WITH YOU?

HAVE YOU EVER LISTENED TO

GOD INSTEAD OF YOU ASKING

GOD TO LISTEN TO YOU?

WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO

HIM?

WHAT DOES HE TELL YOU?

HOW IS YOUR ATTITUDE?

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WAY

YOU LIVE?

IT JUST MAY BE THAT THAT

MARRIAGE IS HOPELESS, THERE

IS IRRECONCILABLE

DIFFERENCES.

MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE

BEEN MARRIED IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

I DON'T KNOW ALL OF THE

ANSWERS BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW

YOU PERSONALLY.

BUT YOU NEED COUNSELLING.

BUT DON'T SAY HOW DO I GET

GOD TO LISTEN TO ME BECAUSE

GOD HAS HEARD THE FIRST

MOMENT YOU PRAYED.

HE HEARS AND UNDERSTANDS.

YOU NEED TO SUBMIT TO HIM.

YOU SAY, LORD, I SUBMIT TO

YOUR WILL, YOU SHOW ME WHAT

I SHOULD DO, AND YOU WATCH

WHAT

HAPPENS.

Terry: THAT IS

REALLY

SOUND.

BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES WE

PRAY, AND WHAT WE'RE REALLY

ASKING GOD TO DO IS OKAY OUR

BEHAVIOR, OUR DECISION --

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS WILLIAM

WHO SAYS, "PAT, THE GOSPELS

OF MATTHEW, MARK, AND LUKE

ARE KNOWN AS THE SEN OPTIC

GOSPELS, AND WHAT IS SO

DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST

THREE?"

Pat: THE SCHOLARS

THOUGHT THERE WAS SOMETHING

CALLED THE QUE, WHICH MEANS

SOURCE IN GREEK.

BUT THERE WAS ONE DOCUMENT

THAT WAS MAIN.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, THEY

RELATE THE SAME THINGS.

THERE IS SOME THOUGHT THEY

ARE CLOSE TO ONE ANOTHER.

WHEREAS JOHN IS WRITTEN

DIFFERENTLYLY, AND THE GREEK

IS DIFFERENT, AND THE WAY IT

IS EXPRESSED IS DIFFERENT.

IT IS, LIKE, A WHOLE

DIFFERENT THING.

IT IS MUCH HIGHER IN THE

SENSE OF THE DRAMA IN THERE,

AND THE EMOTION BETWEEN

JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES.

THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO

SAY, ACCEPT THAT THAT IS

WHAT

SYNOPTIC MEANS.

Terry: JAMIE SAYS, "CAN

YOU EXPLAIN WHAT THE

BIBLICAL EPOCLI IS, AND

SHOULD WE READ IT?"

Pat: YOU CAN READ

ANYTHING YOU WANT, BUT IF

YOU THINK IT IS PART OF THE

OLD TESTAMENT, IT IS NOT.

THEY DID NOT INCLUDE THE

EPOCRIFER IN THEIR

DOCUMENTS.

IT HAS TO DO WITH WHAT IS

CALLED THE INTERTESTIMENTAL

PERIOD.

AND THE JEWISH SCHOLARS JUST

SAID THIS DOESN'T HAVE THE

SAME RING AS THE AUTHENTIC

SCRIPTURES THAT WE HAVE

FOUND AND PUT INTO WHAT WE

CALL THE CANON.

SO THE CATHOLICS HAVE

INCLUDED THE EPOCRIFER, BUT

PROTESTANTS DON'T BECAUSE

THEY DON'T THINK IT HAS THE

SAME VALIDITY OF SCRIPTURE.

BUT IT DOES TELL, FROM AN

HISTORIC STANDPOINT, SOME

THINGS THAT WERE HAPPENING.

WHEN THE JEWS WERE

REVOLTING, WHEN THE MACABIS

WERE TRYING TO RUN THE

COUNTRY.

THAT'S WHY.

Terry: AGNES SAYS, "I

SOMETIMES DREAM OF THINGS

THAT HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.

I'VE HEARD THIS IS NOT OF

GOD.

CAN YOU TELL ME IF THIS IS

UNGODLY?

I DON'T WANT TO DISHONOR GOD

IN ANY WAY."

Pat: YOU'RE NOT

DISHONORING GOD.

SOME OF THE GREAT MEN OF GOD

HAD DREAMS.

THINK OF DANIEL AND JOSEPH

INTERPRETING DREAMS, AND

THAT WAS A BIG DEAL.

I THINK GOD CAN GIVE US

DREAMS, AND HE CAN SPEAK IN

VISIONS.

HE CAN SPEAK IN DREAMS.

HE CAN SPEAK BY THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

YOU JUST HAVE TO TEST THE

SPIRITS TO SEE IF THEY'RE

FROM GOD.

JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A

DREAM, IT DOESN'T MEAN IT

CAME FROM GOD.

IT COULD COME FROM A

MEATBALL SANDWICH YOU HAD

FOR DINNER.

Terry: I BELIEVE THAT

IS TRUE, BUT IF SHE IS

CONCERNED ABOUT DREAMING

ABOUT THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN

THE FUTURE, YOU KNOW, THAT

COULD BE --

Pat: THAT'S A GIFT OF

GOD.

Terry: YES, I AGREE.

Pat: I DON'T THINK THAT

COMES FROM SATAN OR

ANYTHING.

THE QUESTION IS: DO THESE

DREAMS LEAD YOU AWAY FROM

JESUS, OR DO THEY REINFORCE

YOUR FAITH?

BUT THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE

SO-CALLED PRE-COGNITIONS,

THAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU A

GIFT, ENJOY IT AND PRAISE

HIM FOR IT.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

THAT SAYS, "WHEN JESUS ASKED

THE FATHER TO FORGIVE THEM,

QUOTE,"BECAUSE THEY KNOW

WHAT THEY DO," WAS HE ASKING

GOD TO FORGIVE THE MEN WHO

NAILED HIM TO THE CROSS?

WAS HE ASKING GOD TO FORGIVE

MEN WHO TORTURED JESUS AND

NAILED HIM TO THE CROSS?"

Pat: IT WASN'T

CONSIDERED TORTURE.

IT WAS RULED ON BY PONTIUS

PILOT WHO WAS THE GOVERNOR.

SO THEY WERE JUST FOLLOWING

ORDERS.

THEY WEREN'T,

QUOTE,"TORTURING" SOMEBODY.

THEY WERE EXECUTING A

PRISONER.

THEY FIGURED HE MUST BE AS

BAD AS THESE MURDERERS.

THE OTHER GUYS THEY WERE

CRUCIFYING WERE BANDITS,

ROBBERS, AND MURDERERS.

SO THERE WAS A LAWFUL

EXECUTION.

BUT JESUS IS SAYING THESE

MEN DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

AND I THINK HE WAS TALKING

ALL THE WAY UP AND DOWN THE

LINE.

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE

JEWISH LEADERS.

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT PONTIUS

PILOT.

NONE OF THEM REALIZED THEY

WERE CRUCIFYING THE SON OF

GOD.

SO WHAT HE IS SAYING,

FATHER, I'M NOT GOING TO

HOLD THIS AGAINST THEM.

AND I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE

THEM.

THAT SHOWS THE ATTITUDE OF

SOMEBODY WHO IS GODLY.

I'M NOT GOING TO HOLD A

GRUDGE, BUT, FATHER, FORGIVE

THEM; THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

TODAY.

BUT THANK YOU.

THOSE ARE SOME GOOD ONES.

YOU'RE UP ON YOUR THEOLOGY.

Pat: AREN'T YOU SWEET.

I SPENT THREE YEARS IN

SCHOOL STUDYING ALL OF

THAT.

Terry: TO BE ABLE TO DO

THAT.

Pat: TO BE ABLE TO HAVE

THIS MOMENT WITH YOU.

Terry: AND YOU HAD NO

IDEA AT THE TIME.

Pat: YEAH.

OKAY.

Terry: CLEAN WATER IS

ALMOST NON-EXISTENT IN PARTS

OF PERU, AND FOR ONE FAMILY,

EVEN GETTING POLLUTED WATER

MEANT RISKING THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: 16-YEAR-OLD

KATHRYN LIVES IN A REMOTE

PART OF PERU WHERE FRESH

WATER IS SCARCE.

FOR HER ENTIRE LIFE, SHE HAS

BEEN FORCED TO BATHE IN THIS

POLLUTED RIVER NEAR HER

HOME.

BUT POLLUTION WASN'T THE

ONLY DANGER SHE FACED.

I USUALLY GO TO WASH AT

THE RIVER EVERY DAY.

BUT THAT DAY I FELT

SOMETHING BITE ME ON MY

ANKLE.

THE PAIN WAS SO STRONG THAT

I FELL INTO THE WATER.

Reporter: KATHRYN'S

PARENTS TOOK HER TO THE

HOSPITAL, WHERE SHE SPENT

THE NEXT 15 DAYS RECEIVING

I.V. TREATMENTS THAT SAVED

HER LIFE.

I THOUGHT MY DAUGHTER WAS

GOING TO DIE.

I WAS SO AFRAID FOR HER.

I WAS VERY SCARED BECAUSE

I THOUGHT THE DOCTORS WILL

HAVE TO CUT OFF MY LEG.

Reporter: WHEN KATHRYN

RECOVERED, THE FAMILY'S

FEARS FOR THEIR DAUGHTER'S

SAFETY WERE EVEN MORE

INTENSE.

I WAS AFRAID TO GO BACK

TO THE RIVER, BUT I HAD NO

CHOICE.

THERE WAS NO OTHER WATER FOR

US TO USE TO WASH.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" CAME TO THE

COMMUNITY AND DRILLED A

WELL.

NOW EVERY DAY THERE IS

PLENTY OF

FRESH

WATER FOR

DRINKING

DRINKING AND FOR

KATHRYN TO BATHE WITH.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR GIVING US THE

WELL.

NOW WE DON'T HAVE TO BATHE

IN THE RIVER OR DRINK

CONTAMINATED WATER FROM

THERE, TOO.

Reporter: THANKS

"OPERATION BLESSING" FOR

THIS GREAT GIFT.

Terry: "700 CLUB"

Pat: THIS IS A GOOD

TIME.

WE NEED YOUR MEMBERSHIP.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.

AS SUMMER APPROACHES, PEOPLE

GO ON VACATIONS, AND THE

INCOME OF CHARITIES AND

MINISTRIES HAS A TENDENCY TO

DIP.

AND SO WE ASK YOU TO BE

FAITHFUL DURING THIS TIME

BECAUSE WE NEED YOUR HELP.

WELL, UP NEXT, THE FOX NEWS

ANCHOR WHO ALSO HAPPENS TO

BE A TRAINED CHEF.

WE'LL JOIN DARI ALEXANDER IN

THE KITCHEN WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: YOU MAY

RECOGNIZE DARI ALEXANDER AS

A FOX NEWS ANCHOR, BOT

BEFORE SHE BECAME A

JOURNALIST, SHE TRAINED AS A

CHEF IN NEW YORK AND PARIS,

AND THAT TRAINING HELPED HER

CREATE RECIPES THAT ARE

QUICK AND CLEAN.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: DARI

ALEXANDER IS AN

AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST AND

A MOTHER AND WIFE.

SHE STRUGGLED TO LOSE THE

WEIGHT SHE GAINED WHILE

PREGNANT.

IN HER BOOK, "THE QUICK AND

CLEAN DIET," DARI BALANCES

NO NON-SENSE ADVICE WITH

DELICIOUS RECIPES, AND

SHARES WHY LOSING WEIGHT

ISN'T JUST ABOUT GETTING

INTO SKINNY JEANS.

Terry: POLICE WELCOME

TO OUR "700 CLUB" KITCHEN

DARI ALEXANDER.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THANK YOU.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO BE HERE.

Terry: NEW YORK, PARIS,

WHAT MADE YOU CHANGE

DIRECTIONS IN YOUR LIFE?

ACTUALLY, I ALWAYS LOVED

TO COOK.

I REMEMBER BEING IN FOURTH

GRADE MAKING RECIPES, AND

HOLIDAYS AND WITH FAMILY.

AND SO I JUST ALWAYS PURSUED

THAT.

BUT I ALSO HAD AN INTEREST

IN NEWS.

I WAS KIND OF A NEWS JUNKY.

AND WHEN IT CAME DOWN TO IT,

I KIND OF THOUGHT MAYBE I'LL

PURSUE THE COOKING SOMETIME

LATER ON IN MY LIFE, AND

I'LL CONTINUE TO DO IT FOR

MY FAMILY.

BUT I JUST REALLY HAD TO GO

OUT THERE AND LOOK FOR

STORIES AND FIND STORIES.

IT WAS REALLY STIMULATING.

Terry: AND THE DOORS

OPENED FOR YOU TO DO BOTH.

WITH ONE OPENING THE DOOR TO

THE OTHER.

YOU HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF

CHILDREN.

HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU HAVE?

I HAVE TWO KIDS.

Terry: AND LIKE ALL OF

US WHO HAVE CHILDREN, YOU

HAD THE ISSUE OF BEING IN

THE PUBLIC EYE AND NEEDING

TO GET BACK IN SHAPE.

TELL ME HOW YOU YOU DID

THAT?

IT IS NOT EASY.

FOR EVERYBODY, IT IS A

PRESSURE.

YOU HAVE TO GET USED TO THE

WAY YOU LOOK BEFORE YOU HAVE

KIDS AND AFTER YOU HAVE

CHILDREN.

WHEN YOU'RE IN THE PUBLIC

EYE, IT IS THAT MUCH MORE

PRESSURE.

AND I FELT LIKE I WANTED TO

DO SOMETHING, AND I WANTED

TO DO SOMETHING THAT WAS

GOING TO BE MEANINGFUL AND

SOMETHING THAT WAS GOING TO

LAST, AND SOMETHING THAT

WASN'T GOING TO KILL ME.

I DIDN'T WANT TO PUT MYSELF

UNDER ANY MORE PRESSURE THAN

I NEEDED TO.

WHAT I DID WAS I REALLY

FOUND SOMETHING, THROUGH

DOING SOME RESEARCH -- I

FOUND A DIET THAT WORKS FOR

ME BECAUSE IT ALLOWS ME TO

EAT EVERYTHING THAT I LIKE,

AND AT THE SAME TIME LOSE

WEIGHT.

Terry: YOU GOT ME RIGHT

THERE.

WE ALL LOVE FOOD.

IT IS A PART OF

CELEBRATION.

IT IS HOW WE SHOW LOVE.

Terry: LET ME GRAB YOUR

COOKBOOK, BECAUSE IT IS

BEAUTIFULLY DONE.

THANK YOU.

NOT JUST GOOD, BUT

QUICK.

QUICK.

WE HAVE FAMILIES.

IT IS SO HARD TO STICK WITH

YOUR PLAN.

Terry: SO TELL ME ABOUT

THE DIET THAT YOU FOUND THAT

WORKS FOR YOU.

WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES YOURS

UNIQUE?

IT IS CALLED "THE QUICK

AND CLEAN DIET," WHICH IS

ALL ABOUT CLEAN EATING.

EATING THE FOOD THAT GOD

INTENDED US TO EAT.

NOT FOODS THAT ARE HEAVILY

PROCESSED.

NOT FOODS THAT SPENT A LOT

OF TIME IN THE FACTORY, BUT

LITERALLY FOOD WE GET FROM

THE GROUND, FROM TREES.

YOU CAN EAT IT THAT WAY.

HAVING AN APPRECIATION FOR

THE NUTRIENTS IN IT.

THAT FOOD MOVES THROUGH YOUR

BODY SO MUCH FASTER.

AND IT IS FOOD THAT IS

NUTRIENT DENSE, WHICH ALLOWS

YOU TO EAT.

WHEN YOU GO ON A DIET, YOU

WANT TO SEE RESULTS, BUT YOU

DON'T WANT TO STARVE.

Terry: YOU WANT TO BE

HEALTHY.

ABSOLUTELY.

Terry: HOW DID

FOLLOWING THE QUICK AND

CLEAN DIET IMPACT YOU?

WELL, IT MADE ME MORE

MIND-CENTERED, IT GAVE ME

MORE ENERGY.

IT MADE ME A NICER PERSON

BECAUSE I WASN'T FRUSTRATED

WITH WHERE I WAS.

IT CERTAINLY PUT MY LIFE

BACK INTO BALANCE.

Terry: BACK IN ORDER.

EXACTLY.

WHERE I WANTED TO BE.

Terry: LET'S SHOW

PEOPLE A FEW OF THE RECIPES

YOU HAVE WITH YOU TODAY.

FIRST THERE IS AN OMELETTE.

IT IS CALLED THE

SANTORINA OMELETTE, AND IT

IS REALLY QUICK AND EASY TO

MAKE.

YOU'RE GOING TO PUT ON YOUR

STOVE HERE -- YOU'RE GOING

TO SPRAY A LITTLE BIT OF

NON-STICK COOKING SPRAY, AND

YOU'RE GOING TO GRAB A BUNCH

OF VEGETABLES.

WE'RE GOING TO START WITH

ONIONS.

AND THE GOOD THING ABOUT

VEGETABLES IS THIS CAN BE

ONE OF YOUR VEGETABLE COUNTS

FOR THE DAY, WHICH IS SUPER

IMPORTANT.

YOU'RE GOING TO PUT IT IN

HERE AND SAUTE IT.

TERRY, YOU CAN STIR IT, IF

YOU'D LIKE.

YOU CAN KIND OF MOVE THAT

AROUND, AND YOU CAN PUT IN

SOME TOMATOES.

AND THIS IS REALLY -- I

MEAN, WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO

USE.

WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO USE,

YOU CAN PUT IN HERE.

I MEAN VEGETABLES, YOU KNOW,

THEY'RE VERY, VERY GOOD FOR

YOU.

Terry: AND YOU'VE GOT

TOMATOES AND ONIONS, AND

WHAT IS THIS?

THESE ARE CALAMATA AL

LIVES.

THEY AR -- OLIVES.

THEY'RE GREEK OLIVES.

AND HERE IS PARSLEY AND

SPINACH.

Terry: ALL KIND OF

CHOPPED TOGETHER.

AND THIS IS YOUR GREEN,

WHICH IS VERY, VERY GOOD.

YOU'RE GOING TO SAUTE, MOVE

THAT AROUND, UNTIL THE

ONIONS ARE TRANSLUCENT, BUT

YOU DON'T WANT TO OVERCOOK

YOUR VEGETABLES BECAUSE YOUR

VEGETABLES HAVE ALL OF THE

NUTRIENTS IN THERE.

YOU SOFTEN THEM JUST A

LITTLE BIT.

AND YOU TAKE THE PAN AND YOU

CAN JUST PUT IT -- THIS IS

AN OMELETTE THAT WE KIND OF

PRE-MADE.

YOU MAKE AN EGG OMELETTE,

FLAT OUT.

THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE IN

THERE.

AND YOU JUST FILL IT.

AND IT LOOKS SO PRETTY.

YOU TURN OFF THE GAS, OF

COURSE.

Terry: IT JUST LOOKS SO

PRETTY.

AND YOU CAN FLIP --

Terry: YOU'RE THE

CHEF.

NO PROBLEM.

AND I LIKE TO PUT A LITTLE

BIT OF FETA CHEESE HERE --

Terry: BEFORE YOU MELT

SOME INSIDE?

EXACTLY.

AND THEN WHAT YOU CAN DO IS

FOLD IT OVER AND PUT SOME ON

TOP, WHICH IS REALLY NICE.

Terry: THAT'S GREAT.

AND THIS IS GOING TO FEED

YOU.

AND WHEN YOU SEAT FOOD LIKE

THIS, YOU DON'T HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT CALORIES --

Terry: BECAUSE IT IS

ALL GOOD.

YOU DON'T HAVE A BAD THING

IN THERE.

IT IS SO HEALTHY FOR

YOU.

IT IS LOADED WITH PROTEIN

AND VEGETABLES.

AND IT IS UNDER

200 CALORIES.

THESE ARE GOOD MORNING

MUFFINS.

THEY HAVE PUMPKIN PIE SPICE

AND BRAN FLAKES IN THERE,

AND APPLESAUCE, AND

WALNUTS.

Terry: I'M GOING TO

MOVE OVER HERE BECAUSE OUR

TIME IS RUNNING SHORT, AND

YOU'VE GOT A FISH TACO?

THESE ARE PORK TACOS.

WE HAVE PRE-MADE PORK, AND

THE RECIPE IS IN THE BOOK

FOR YOU.

YOU CAN SPICE IT HOWEVER YOU

LIKE.

AND I HAVE SOME SALSA IN

HERE.

YOU TAKE SOME PEACHES, AND

YOU CAN PUT THEM IN THE

BOWL.

Terry: AM I DOING THE

WHOLE THING?

SURE.

WHY NOT?

WE CAN SERVE THE WHOLE

CREW.

YOU TAKE SOME ONIONS, AND

PUT THEM IN THERE.

AND HERE IS SOME PARSLEY.

Terry: AND IS THIS

GREEN PEPPER?

EXACTLY.

YOU CAN PUT THEM IN THERE.

A LITTLE BIT OF GARLIC --

Terry: OR A LOT.

YEAH, A LITTLE BIT OR A

LOT.

AND YOU'VE GOT LEMON JUICE

OR LIME JUICE.

AND YOU CAN ALSO USE SOME

SOYA THERE.

THAT IS DARK AGAVE SYRUP.

THIS IS A LITTLE BIT OF

LEMON JUICE.

AND YOU STIR IT UP, AND PUT

IT IN THE REFRIGERATOR.

Terry: THIS IS SO

PRETTY.

YEAH, AND IT SMELLS GOOD

AND IT IS FRUIT TEE.

Terry: I ALWAYS SAY, I

WISH THERE WAS

SMELLEVISION --

ONE OF THESE DAYS THERE

WILL BE SMELLEVISION.

AND YOU CAN WRAP IT UP

AND EAT IT LIKE THAT, AND

IT'S REALLY, REALLY

DELICIOUS.

Terry: YOU KNOW WHAT I

REALLY WANT TO DO?

I WANT YOU ALL TO GET THIS

BOOK BECAUSE IT IS SO

BEAUTIFUL.

SHE HAS LOTS MORE

INFORMATION ON CLEAN EATING,

AND PLENTY OF WONDERFUL

RECIPES, LIKE WE'VE TALKED

ABOUT.

"THE QUICK AND CLEAN DIET,"

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS ARE

SOLD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: PAT, COME EAT.

Pat: SHE IS GOOD.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM FROM JESUS FROM

JOHN: "MOST ASSUREDLY I SAY

TO YOU, WHATEVER YOU ASK THE

FATHER IN MY NAME, HE WILL

GIVE YOU."
