The 700 Club - April 23, 2013

Jeff Bethke's search for identity left him isolated until he found meaning in a relationship with Jesus. Plus, Unaware she was pregnant with twins, a 13-year-old has an abortion that only kills one baby. Read Transcript


WE CAN TAKE CARE OF THAT

PROBLEM TODAY, 45 MINUTES IN

AND OUT.

Lee: COMING UP, THE

ABORTION THAT SHOCKED THE

HEAD OF A PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

I COULD SEE THE SHOCK AND

HORROR ON THEIR FACES.

Lee: PLUS...

ABORTION DOESN'T JUST

AFFECT ONE PERSON.

Lee: AND SHE KNOWS

FIRSTHAND.

I AM AN ABORTION SURVIVOR.

Lee: BUT HER TWIN

SISTER WASN'T AS LUCKY.

I'M STILL A TWIN.

MY TWIN JUST ISN'T HERE.

Lee: ON TODAY'S "THE

700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WAS IT THE DRONES?

WAS IT THE ARROGANCE OF

AMERICA?

THE ANSWER IS NONE OF THOSE

THINGS.

THOSE BOYS WERE MOTIVATED BY

ISLAM.

THAT'S WHAT INVESTIGATORSS

INVESTIGATORS SAY ABOUT THE

TWO BROTHERS SUSPECTED OF

THE BOMBINGS IN BOSTON.

Terry: AND THE OLDER

BROTHER WAS APPARENTLY ANGRY

WITH AMERICA AND

CHRISTIANITY.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THIS

LOOK AT WHAT WE'VE LEARNED

ABOUT THE BOMBERS.

Reporter: FROM HIS

HOSPITAL BED, DZHOKHAR

TSARNAEV IS STARTING TO TELL

AUTHORITIES.

HE SAYS HE BUILT THE

PRESSURE COO COOKER BOMB

FROM HELP ON THE INTERNET.

I WOULD CHARACTERIZE IT

AS SELF-RADICALIZATION.

THEY MAY HAVE SOME

CONNECTIONS OVERSEAS, BUT

THE PRIMARY RADICALIZATION

IS IN PLACES LIKE THE UNITED

STATES.

Reporter: STILL, THE

EXPERTS SAY ANWAR

AL-HALAKI PROBABLY INSPIRED

TO TWO.

AS CBN'S GEORGE THOMAS

RECENTLY REPORTED, CHECHNYA

HAS BEEN A VOLATILE REASON,

A PLACE OF NUMEROUS CLASHES

BETWEEN MUSLIM MILITANTS AND

RUSSIAN FORCES.

IT HAS ALSO SERVED AS A

TRAINING GROUND FOR

MILITANTS, DEDICATE ID TO

THE GLOBAL JIHAD.

NEIGHBORS SAY WHEN TAMERLAN

RETURNED FROM HIS TRIP, HIS

VIEWS WERE MORE EXTREME, AND

HE EXPRESSED AN ANGER ABOUT

AMERICA AND CHRISTIANITY.

HE SAID MOST AMERICAN

WARS ARE AN EXCUSE OF THE

BIBLE.

Reporter: AND THEY

REPORTED OUTBURSTS FROM

TAMERLAN, WHERE HE ARGUED

AGAINST CELEBRATING AMERICAN

HOLIDAYS, AND CRITICIZED

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

MARTIN LUTHER KING.

AND F.B.I. COURT PAPERS

INDICATE THAT ONE OF THEM

TOLD A PERSON, DID YOU HEAR

ABOUT THE BOSTON EXPLOSION?

I DID THAT.

THEY ARE CHARGED WITH

FEDERAL CRIMES THAT COULD

BRING THE DEATH PENALTY.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

PAMP

Pat: THE QUESTION IS:

DID THOSE GUYS SUCCEED OR

WAS IT A FAILURE?

THE ANSWER: THEY'VE SURE GOT

THE ATTENTION OF THE AMERICA

POPULATION.

EVERY NEWS CHANNEL IS

FOCUSED ON THOSE TWO MEN.

AND EVERYBODY HAS BEEN

TALKING ABOUT IT.

AND SO THEY DID A LOT OF

DAMAGE, BY WHY?

GEORGE THOMAS IS WITH US

WITH MORE ON ISLAM IN

CHECHNYA.

GEORGE, YOU'VE JUST BEEN TO

CHECHNYA, AND WHAT ABOUT

GLOBAL JIHADISTS, DID YOU

FIND ANY EVIDENCE OF THEM?

Reporter: PAT, THE TIES

WITH GLOBAL JIHAD RUN VERY,

VERY DEEP.

IF YOU LOOK BACK IN THE

EARLY 1990s, ALMAN, A

SECOND IN COMMAND OF

AL-QAEDA, WENT TO CHECHNYA

LOOKING FOR A BASE.

IN 1999, THE REPORTS ARE

OSAMA BIN LADEN WENT TO

CHECHNYA AND GAVE SUPPORT TO

THE INSURGENTS WHO ARE

FIGHTING.

THERE IS A MAP OF CHECHNYA

AND DAGESTAN.

AND THIS IS THE EPICENTER,

THE HOT-BED OF RADICAL ISLAM

TODAY IN SOUTHERN RUSSIA.

AND THE RUSSIANS HAVE, SINCE

THE '90s, BEEN FIGHTING

ALMOST A DAILY BATTLE TO RID

THESE ISLAMISTS OF A BASE OF

OPERATION.

THE INSURGENCY WAS AT THE

HEIGHT IN THE EARLY '90s,

IT WAS THE EPICENTER, AND

THEY FLUSHED THEM OUT.

THE RUSSIANS WERE RUTHLESS

AGAINST THE ISLAMISTS, AND

NOW THEY'VE MOVED NEXT DOOR

TO THE PROVINCE OF

DAGESTAN.

AND TODAY THERE IS NOT A

STREET IN DAGESTAN, THE

CAPITAL CITY, THAT HAS NOT

BEEN TOUCHED BY TERROR.

ALMOST EVERY DAY THERE ARE

SUICIDE ATTACKS.

THERE ARE BOMB ATTACKS.

THIS IS WHAT THE RUSSIANS

ARE UP AGAINST ALMOST EVERY

DAY.

DURING THE NORTHERN

CAUCUSES.

Pat: DO YOU LINK THESE

TWO BOYS TO ONE OF THESE

GROUPS, OR DO YOU HAVE A

LINK?

THE BIG QUESTION IS THE

OLDER BROTHER, IN 2012,

JANUARY, HE APPARENTLY TOOK

A FLIGHT FROM J.F.K. TO

MOSCOW, AND FROM MOSCOW,

LANDED IN HOFSKI.

INVESTIGATORS ARE TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHAT DID THIS

OLDER BROTHER DO FOR SIX

MONTHS IN THIS PART OF

RUSSIA.

AND APPARENTLY TWO YEARS

AGO, THE RUSSIAN

INTELLIGENCE SERVICE

CONTACTED THE F.B.I. AND

SAID, GUYS, LISTEN, THERE

ARE THESE TWO BROTHERS FROM

CHECHNYA.

THEY HAVE SPENT A LOT OF

TIME ON RADICAL ISLAMIST

GROUPS.

YOU NEED TO KEEP AN EYE ON

THEM.

THE F.B.I. WENT IN AND

INTERROGATED THESE TWO, AND

FOUND THERE WAS NO

CONNECTION.

AND IN JANUARY 2012, THE

OLDER BROTHER TAKES A FLIGHT

FROM J.F.K. TO MOSCOW.

THE REPORTS ARE APPARENTLY

THE FLIGHT MISSPELLED HIS

NAME.

THEREFORE THE F.B.I. KNOW

THE RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE

KNEW HE WAS COMING BACK TO

THIS VOLATILE REGION.

SO NOW ALL OF THE FOCUS IS

ON THIS DAGESTAN REGION.

WHAT DID THIS OLDER BROTHER

DO FOR SIX MONTHS.

THEY DON'T KNOW.

THEY'RE STILL TRYING TO

FIGURE THAT OUT.

BUT CLEARLY WHEN HE RETURNED

IN AUGUST OF 2012, HE SET UP

A WEBSITE, A YouTube

CHANNEL, AND WITHIN THE

FIRST WEEKS OF SETTING UP

THIS YouTube CHANNEL,

YOU COULD SEE THE

RADICALIZATION OF HIS MIND

BECAUSE HE STARTED TO POST

VARIOUS SERMONS BY THE TOP

JIHADISTS FROM THIS REGION

IN RUSSIA, TALKING ABOUT HOW

YOUNG PEOPLE NEED TO GO OUT

THERE AND COMMIT SUICIDE

ATTACKS.

THAT IT IS ABOUT ISLAM,

ABOUT SHARI'A LAW, AND

TAKING THE PRINCIPLES OF

ISLAM AND KEEPING THEM

WITHIN YOUR BEING.

Pat: WHAT IS IT THAT

GRABS SOMEBODY'S MIND WHEN

THEY DO THAT?

HIS MIND WAS CAPTURED.

HOW DO THEY DO IT?

I THINK IT IS A

COMBINATION OF FACTORS.

THE BROTHERS CAME HERE 10

YEARS AGO.

THE OLDEST WAS 16, AND THE

YOUNGEST WAS 9 YEARS OLD.

THEY CAME FROM A REGION --

THEY REMEMBER THEIR

HISTORY.

THEY REMEMBER THEIR

BACKGROUND, THE ETHNICITY.

AND CHECHNYA WAS IN THE

MIDDLE OF A BRUTAL WAR.

THEY UNDERSTOOD IT FROM THE

STORIES FROM THREE PARENTS,

PERHAPS, OF THE BRUTALITY OF

THE RUSSIANS AND THE

FIGHTING WITH THE ISLAMIC

RADICALS.

THE OLDER GOT INTO BOXING.

HE WAS SMOKING, HE WAS

DRINKING.

AND ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO,

SOMETHING HAPPENED, WHERE HE

AND HIS MOTHER APPARENTLY

STARTED TO BECOME VERY

DEVOUT, AND IT CAUSED A RIFT

WITHIN THE FAMILY.

THE HUSBAND SAID TO THE

WIFE, LISTEN, YOU'RE

BECOMING TOO RADICAL.

SHE STARTED TO WEAR THE

JIHAB.

AND THE OLDER BROTHER

STARTED TELLING THE FATHER,

WE HAVE TO DEVOTE OURSELVES

TO ISLAM.

IN FACT, THE FATHER SAID,

I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS, AND

I'M GOING BACK TO THE

DAGESTAN.

Pat: GEORGE, EVERYBODY

TALKS ABOUT ISLAM ABOUT THE

RELIGION OF PEACE.

AND YOU'VE BEEN ALL OVER THE

WORLD, AND EVERY TIME YOU

ENCOUNTER IT, THERE IS

PERSECUTION AND MAYHEM AND

SLAUGHTER.

THERE IS A BLOOD SLAUGHTER

IN THIS RELIGION?

IT IS.

ONE OF THE REASONS I WENT TO

DAGESTAN SEVERAL MONTHS AGO

WAS TO DO THE STORY OF THE

SECRET BELIEVERS, WHO ARE

TODAY WALKING THE STREETS OF

DAGESTAN, AND THEY'RE

QUIETLY SHARING THE GOSPEL

OF JESUS CHRIST.

ONE OF THE ORGANIZATIONS I

MET SAID WE KNOW WE'RE THE

EPICENTER OF THE RADICAL

ISLAM, AND OUR GOAL IS TO

REACH THE YOUNG PEOPLE

BEFORE THEY SEE THE

INVESTORS OF THE BEHEADINGS,

AND BEFORE THEY HEAR THE

CALL TO ISLAMIC SHARI'A LAW,

WE NEED TO PENETRATE THEM

WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS

CHRIST.

SO THEY'RE WORKING QUIETLY,

AND IN THE PROCESS, THEY

LOSE THEIR LIFE.

IN THE PROCESS, THEY FACE

DAILY PERSECUTION BECAUSE

THEY'RE GOING OUT AND

SHARING THE GOOD NEWS OF

JESUS CHRIST WITH THESE

VULNERABLE YOUNG MEN AND

WOMEN.

Pat: GEORGE, WE

APPRECIATE IT.

PLEASE GET SOME REST.

YOU'VE BEEN BOUNCING AROUND

THE GLOBE LIKE A SATELLITE.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

Pat: A WELL-KNOWN

LIBERAL HAS RAISED HIS OWN

OBJECTIONS TO ISLAM, AND

THAT WAS ON HIS TV SHOW.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: THE THAT'S

SURPRISING, PAT, BILL MARR

SURPRISED HIS AUDIENCE, AS

WELL AS HIS GUESTS ON HIS

HBO PROGRAM HIS LAST FRIDAY

NIGHT.

MARR WAS INTERVIEWING BRIAN

LEVINE, FOR THE ORGANIZATION

OF THE STUDY O

F

HATE AND

EXTREMISM, AND THEY WERE

TALKING ABOUT THE BOSTON

MARATHON BOMBINGS, AND THE

RELIGIOUS ASPECTS OF

TERRORISM.

COULD I INTERJECT?

IT IS NOT LIKE PEOPLE WHO

ARE MUSLIM WHO DO WACKY

THINGS HAVE A MONOPOLY ON

IT.

WE HAVE HYPOCRITES IN CROSS

FAITHS.

CHRISTIAN, JEWISH --

THEY'RE NOT AS

DANGEROUS.

THERE IS ONLY ONE FAITH THAT

KILLS YOU IF YOU DRAW A BAD

CARTOON OF THE PROPHET.

THERE IS ONLY ONE FAITH THAT

KILLS YOU OR WANTS TO KILL

YOU IF YOU RENOUNCE THE

FAITH.

AN EX-MUSLIM IS A VERY

DANGEROUS THING.

Lee: BILL MARR SAYS HE

REALIZES MOST MUSLIMS ARE

NOT VIOLENT.

WHAT IN THE WORLD HAS GOTTEN

INTO BILL MARR.

IS HE BECOMING A

CONSERVATIVE ALL OF A

SUDDEN?

Pat: NO.

I THINK THE DAWNING OF THE

TRUTH -- YOU CAN'T KILL BUT

SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE BOSTON

MARATHON.

THIS IS THE HEART OF THE

IRISH CATHOLICS.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT BILL IS,

BUT THIS HAS STRUCK A BLOW

AT THE PEOPLE HE LOVES, AND

HE BEGINS TO SEE, AND PEOPLE

BEGIN TO SEE WHAT WE'RE

DEALING WITH.

THESE ARE RADICAL PEOPLE.

OUR ERICK STAKLEBECK

YESTERDAY SAID THERE WERE 50

SCRIPTURES IN THE QURAN THAT

URGED PEOPLE TO GO OUT AND

COMMIT ACTS OF VIOLENCE

AGAINST UNBELIEVERS, AND TO

WAGE JIHAD.

SO I'VE ASKED OUR STAFF TO

ASSEMBLE THOSE 50

SCRIPTURES, AND PUT THEM IN

A LITTLE BOOKLET, AND WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE THEM TO YOU SO

EVERYBODY WILL HAVE ONE TO

SAY, OKAY, DON'T SAY THAT

THIS GREAT RELIGION HAS BEEN

HIJACKED BY EVIL PEOPLE.

THIS IS THE CORE OF THIS

RELIGION.

HERE IS THE TEACHING OF

THEIR FOUNDER, MOHAMMED.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, A NEW BILL

WORKING ITS WAY THROUGH THE

U.S. SENATE COULD MEAN NEW

TAXES.

THE BILL WILL GIVE STATES

THE ABILITY TO REQUIRE

ONLINE RETAILERS TO COLLECT

STATE AND LOCAL TAXES.

AND THAT TAX WOULD BE SENT

TO THE STATE WHERE THE

SHOPPER LIVES.

UNDER CURRENT LAW, STATES

CAN ONLY REQUIRE STORES TO

COLLECT SALES TAXES IF THE

STORE HAS A PHYSICAL

LOCATION IN THAT STATE.

THE SENATE COULD PASS THE

BILL THIS WEEK.

THE WHITE HOUSE SUPPORTS IT,

BUT IT COULD FACE TROUBLE IN

THE HOUSE, WHICH

IS, OF

COURSE, CONTROLLED BY

REPUBLICANS.

OPPONENTS SAY IT WOULD

IMPOSE COMPLICATED

REGULATIONS.

FLIGHT DELAYS ARE PILING UP

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

THAT'S BECAUSE AIR TRAFFIC

CONTROLLERS ARE BEING FORCED

TO TAKE DAYS OFF BECAUSE OF

BUDGET CUTS.

THOSE AUTOMATIC CUTS CAME AS

A RESULT OF THE SO-CALLED

SEQUESTER, WHEN CONGRESS

COULD NOT REACH A DEAL TO

CUT DEFICIT SPENDING.

ALL EMPLOYEES ARE LOSING ONE

DAY OF WORK EVERY OTHER WEEK

AS A RESULT.

SOME CRITICS SAY THE WHITE

HOUSE IS USING AIR TRAVEL,

THOUGH, AS A PAWN TO MAKE

THE SEQUESTER BUDGET CUTS

LOOK WORSE THAN THEY ARE.

THEY ARGUE THAT THE F.A.A.

COULD REDUCE THEIR BUDGET IN

WAYS THAT WOULDN'T HURT

TRAVEL.

Pat: I SAY AMEN TO THAT

SENTIMENT.

THIS IS ONE MORE EXAMPLE OF

THE WHITE HOUSE PLAYING

POLITICS WITH THE BUDGET.

YOU WISH SOMEBODY,

SOMEWHERE, WOULD PUT AMERICA

FIRST.

WHAT IS GOOD FOR THIS

COUNTRY?

WELL, THEY'VE GOT SOME SLUSH

IN THOSE BUDGETS THAT THEY

COULD USE TO MEET THE

SEQUESTER GOALS IF THEY HAVE

TO.

AND, BY THE WAY, THE

SEQUESTER WAS SUGGESTED BY

THE WHITE HOUSE.

IT WAS DRIVEN BY HIM.

WHO THOUGHT THE

CONSERVATIVES WILL NOT AGREE

TO CUTS IN THE PENTAGON.

THEY WON'T AGREE TO CUTS,

AND THEREFORE WE CAN HAVE A

SEQUESTER, AND I'LL LOOK

GOOD, BUT THEY'LL NEVER PUT

IT INTO EFFECT.

I THINK THEY'VE ALL BEEN

SHOCKED THAT IT HAS COME

ABOUT.

BUT SINCE IT IS IN PLACE, IT

HASN'T BEEN THAT BAD A

THING, BUT THEY HAVE DONE

RIDICULOUS THINGS LIKE YOU

CAN'T HAVE TOURS IN THE

WHITE HOUSE.

OR PERHAPS THEY TURN THE

LIGHTS OFF ON THE WASHINGTON

MONUMENT.

OR THEY KEEP PARK RANGERS

FROM TAKING CARE OF SMOKY

THE BEAR.

WHATEVER THEY DO, IT IS

THESE LITTLE THINGS THAT ARE

SYMBOLIC THAT THEY DON'T

NEED THE MONEY FOR.

THEY CAN MOVE MONEY IN

VARIOUS POCKETS, AND

SENATORS HAVE SUGGESTED

THAT, AND THE WHITE HOUSE

HAS TURNED THEM DOWN.

THEY WANT IT TO BE PAINFUL

BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT

PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT IT

IS POSSIBLE TO CUT THE

FEDERAL BUDGET DRAMATICALLY

WITHOUT HURTING OUR NATION.

LEE?

Lee: NO KNIVES, GOLF

CLUBS, OR HOCKEY STICKS ON

PLANES, AT LEAST FOR NOW.

THE T.S.A. IS DELAYING A NEW

POLICY THAT WOULD HAVE

RELAXED THE RULES ABOUT

CARRY-ON ITEMS.

FEDERAL OFFICIALS SAY

THEY'RE ALLOWING MORE

FEEDBACK ON THE CHANGE.

THE BAN ON THOSE ITEMS WAS

IMPLEMENTED TO KEEP

TERRORISTS FROM HAVING TOOLS

TO HIJACK PLANES.

THE T.S.A. OFFICIAL SAYS

THEY WANT TO FREE UP THEIR

AGENTSIT WOULD CUT YOU, BUT I

DON'T THINK IT IS LETHAL.

Terry: COMING UP, SHE

WORKED FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD FOR 17 YEARS,

EVEN THOUGH SHE OPPOSES

ABORTION.

HEAR WHY SHE DID IT, AND

WHAT CAUSED HER TO LEAVE,

AFTER THIS.

Pat: PLANNED PARENTHOOD

RECEIVES OVER $500 MILLION

OF YOUR TA TAXPAYER MONEY,

OF WHICH A LARGE PORTION

GOES TO ABORTION.

THAT'S PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

IT IS SUBSIDIZED HEAVILY BY

THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

WELL, SUE FAIRE USED TO BE A

MANAGER FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IN IOWA.

BUT NOW SUE HAS A COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT MISSION.

SO SHE IS GETTING PRACTICE,

CALLED WEBCAM ABORTIONS.

AND SHE'S -- WELL, SHE WANTS

TO TELL PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND

ME ABOUT IT.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THIS

AMAZING STORY.

Reporter: IN NORTHWEST

IOWA, THE SNOWY LANDSCAPE

GIVES NO HINT OF SPRING, AND

COVERS WHAT HAS BECOME A

BATTLEGROUND OVER THE RIGHTS

OF THE UNBORN.

AT THE CENTER, SUE FAIRE,

WHO OPPOSES ABORTION, YET

MANAGED STORM LAKE'S PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINIC FOR 17

YEARS.

I STARTED AT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD REALLY FEELING

LIKE I WOULD BE HELPING

WOMEN.

Reporter: FOR MOST OF

THOSE 17 YEARS, HER CLINIC

DID NOT OFFER ABORTIONS.

BUT THAT CHANGED IN 2007,

WHEN FAIRE DISCOVERED THAT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WOULD

BEGIN WHAT IS KNOWN AS

WEBCAM ABORTIONS AT ALL IOWA

FACILITIES.

THE PROCEDURE ALLOWS A

DOCTOR TO VISIT A PATIENT

VIA SKYPE AND THEN PUSH A

BUTTON TO DISPENSE PILLS:

ONE THAT KILLS THE BABY, AND

ONE THAT EXPELS IT.

THE STAFF WERE INSTRUCTED

TO SAY WE CAN TAKE CARE OF

THAT PROBLEM TODAY, 45

MINUTES IN AND OUT.

Reporter: FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, ABORTION VIA THE

INTERNET IS A GREAT

MONEY-MAKER, AND IT IS A

GREAT STRATEGY, A WAY TO

UTILIZE A SMALL POOL OF

ABORTION DOCTORS.

THEY'RE HAVING TO COME UP

WITH CREATIVE WAYS TO

INCREASE AND LEVERAGE THE

DOCTORS THAT THEY DO HAVE

WHO WILL DO ABORTIONS.

Reporter: FOR FAIRE,

RED FLAGS BEGAN TO WAVE, AND

THE PROSPECT OF OVERSEEING

THESE ABORTIONS BECAME

DAUNTING.

WHEN SHE ASKED TO ALERT

DOCTORS IN HER COMMUNITY,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SAID NO.

THEN CAME THE DISCOVERY THAT

SHE AND OTHER NON-MEDICAL

STAFF WOULD HAVE TO PORM

TRANS VAGINAL ULTRASOUNDS.

MY BOSS SAID, IF YOU ARE

BREATHING, YOU CAN DO IT.

IT HELPS IF YOU'VE RUN A JOY

STICK BECAUSE IT IS A LOT

LIKE PLAYING A VIDEO GAME.

Reporter: ANOTHER

CONCERN, PLANNED PARENTHOOD

USES THE ABORTION MEDICATION

KNOWN AS RU-486, BUT IT

DOESN'T FOLLOW REGULATIONS

IN DISPENSING IT.

THE F.D.A. HAD APPROVED

THESE MEDICINES UP TO DAY

49, BUT RIGHT OUT OF THE

CHUTE, PLANNED PARENTHOOD

WAS GIVING THEM UP TO DAY

63.

Reporter: AND DOCTOR

VISITS ARE SHORT-CHANGED.

IT IS WHY PRO-LIFERS WANT

STATES TO TOUGHEN PENALTIES

FOR DISOBEYING THESE RULES.

THE DRUG REQUIRED THREE

DOCTOR VISITS.

THAT IS VERY EXPENSIVE FOR

THE ABORTION INDUSTRY TO

COMPLY WITH THAT.

Reporter: FAIRE

BELIEVES HER CONCERNS AND

COMPLAINTS LED PLANNED

PARENTHOOD TO FIRE HER IN

LATE 2008.

A SHORT TIME LATER, THE FINE

PRINT ON HER SEVERANCE

PACKAGE CAUGHT HER EYE.

FAIRE WOULD HAVE TO AGREE TO

NOT SPEAK OUT ABOUT WHAT SHE

HAD SEEN AT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IN ORDER TO

RECEIVE HER FINAL CHECK.

I HAD ENJOYED GREAT PAY,

GREAT BENEFITS, INSURANCE

FOR MYSELF AND ALL OF MY

KIDS, AND I THOUGHT, IT'S

NOT WORTH IT.

WE'LL SELL THE HOUSE.

Reporter: AFTER FAIRE

REFUSED PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S

DEAL, HER LIFE CHANGED

AGAIN.

PRO-LIFERS IN STORM LAKE

BEGAN TO APPROACH HER, AND

SHE TOLD THEM ABOUT THE

WEBCAM ABORTIONS IN THEIR

COMMUNITY.

AS I TOLD THEM THE STORY

OF HOW IT HAPPENS, AND THE

BUTTON ON THE COMPUTER AND

THE DOOR POPPING OPEN, I

COULD SEE THE SHOCK AND

HORROR ON THEIR FACES.

Reporter: FROM THERE, A

SMALL GROUP ORGANIZED A

40-DAY FOR LIFE PRAYER VIGIL

OUTSIDE THEIR CLINIC.

I REMEMBER THE STAR

COMING, MY FORMER

CO-WORKERS, AND IT WAS

AWKWARD, BUT I KNEW I WAS IN

THE RIGHT PLACE PROBABLY FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: IT UNITED THE

PRO-LIFE COMMUNITY.

AND THEN A FEW MONTHS LATER,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD ANNOUNCED

IT WAS CLOSING THE CLINIC.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DID NOT

RESPOND TO CBN'S INQUIRY

ABOUT THE CLOSURE, BUT FAIRE

SAYS SHE WAS STUNNED.

I HAVE NO EXPLANATION

ABOUT IT ACCEPT GOD IS GOOD

AND HE ANSWERS PRAYER.

Reporter: AND THERE IS

A NEW CRISIS PREGNANCY

CLINIC OPENING.

THEY CALL IT A MODERN DAY

MIRACLE.

I REMEMBER PRAYING, LORD,

JUST CLOSE THIS PLACE AND

PUT A PLACE OF LIFE HERE.

THERE WERE PEOPLE WHO

WOULD STOP ON THE ROAD AND

COME AND PRAY.

THEY WEREN'T EVEN PART OF

IT, BUT THEY SAID, CAN WE

PRAY, AND WE SAID SURE.

THERE IS A LOT THAT

HAPPENED IN A SHORT AMOUNT

OF TIME.

I THINK IT IS AN ANSWER TO

PRAYERS.

Reporter: WHILE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD HAS TOLD WORKERS

IT PLANS TO IMPLEMENT WEBCAM

ABORTIONS NATIONWIDE, SO FAR

THEY'RE ONLY OFFERED IN IOWA

AND MINNESOTA.

FOUR STATES CURRENTLY BAN

THE PRACTICE, AND SIX ARE

CONSIDERING REGULATIONS TO

LIMIT THE USE OF RU-486.

REPORTING IN IOWA, HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

GREAT REPORT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

DON'T THINK ANY OF US

REALIZE THE ENORMOUS AMOUNT

OF MONEY THAT THE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINICS ALL OVER

THIS COUNTRY HAVE.

SOME OF THESE LITTLE

CHAPTERS OF PLANNED

PARENTHOOD MAY HAVE IN THE

BANK AS MUCH AS

$100 MILLION.

THEY HAVE ENORMOUS FUNDING,

AND THE UNITED STATES

GOVERNMENT IS PICKING UP THE

TAB IN EXCESS OF

$500 MILLION.

AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES WAS CONFRONTED

WITH THE FACT THAT CONGRESS

WANTED TO CUT GRANTS TO

PLANNED PARENTHOOD AS PART

OF ITS BUDGET ATTEMPT TO CUT

BACK ON EXPENSES IN THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

AND GUESS WHAT?

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES SAID I WILL SHUT THE

GOVERNMENT DOWN BEFORE AGREE

TO WITHDRAW THE FUNDING FOR

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

I WILL SHUT THE GOVERNMENT

DOWN RATHER THAN WITHDRAW

THE SUBSIDY FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING UP,

A GIRL WHO SURVIVED AN

ABORTION ATTEMPT, EVEN

THOUGH HER TWIN SISTER DID

NOT.

WE HAVE HER STORY NEXT.

ñññ

*

Terry: CLAIRE CALDWELL

ALWAYS KNEW SHE WAS ADOPTED,

SO AT THE AGE OF 20, CLAIRE

WANTED TO FIND HER BIRTH

MOTHER.

SHE WANTED TO THANK HER FOR

CHOOSING LIFE.

THAT'S WHEN CLAIRE FOUND OUT

HER MOM HAD CHOSEN THE

OPPOSITE.

MY NAME A CLAIRE

CALDWELL, AND I AM AN

ABORTION SURVIVOR.

AND THAT IS IS HOW I HAVE

BEEN AFFECTED, WHICH IS VERY

RARE.

I WAS A TWIN WHEN I WAS IN

THE WOMB, BUT TODAY I'M

STILL A TWIN, BUT MY TWIN

JUST ISN'T HERE.

I AM HERE TO BE ABLE TO BE A

VOICE AND A SAY FOR THE

UNBORN.

AND THAT IS ALL BY GOD'S

GRACE.

I WILL SPEAK IN HONOR OF

YOU.

AT THE AGE OF 20, I DYSED

THAT I WAS GOING T DECIDED

I WAS GOING TO MAKE THE

PHONE CALL TO MY ADOPTION

AGENCY AND START A SEARCH TO

HOPEFULLY MEET MY BIRTH

MOTHER.

I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM

HER A MONTH LATER, AND I

VISITED.

I HAD A CARD FOR HER.

AND ON THE CARD WHAT I WROTE

WAS, "THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING

LIFE FOR ME.

THAT'S THE GREATEST GIFT

I'VE EVER RECEIVED."

AND AS SHE OPENED THIS CARD,

WHAT WERE VERY, VERY HAPPY

TEARS BEGAN TO TURN INTO

VERY SAD TEARS AS WELL.

AND SHE GRABS MY HAND AND

SHE TOOK ME INTO A BACK

ROOM.

AND SHE BEGAN TELLING ME

ABOUT HER LIFE.

WHAT SHE TOLD ME WAS SHE

GREW UP IN A FAMILY WHERE

HER PARENTS WERE DIVORCED.

SHE LIVED WITH HER MOTHER.

AND HER MOTHER WORKED

MULTIPLE JOBS, WHICH LEFT MY

BIRTH MOTHER MAKING VERY

ADULT DECISIONS FOR

HERSELF.

AS SHE SOUGHT OUTSIDE FOR

LOVE, FOR FULFILLMENT, LIKE

MANY OF US DO, SHE FOUND

HERSELF PREGNANT AT 13 YEARS

OLD.

HER MOTHER SAID THAT THERE

WAS ONLY ONE THING TO DO.

AND THAT DAY THEY GOT IN THE

CAR, THEY DROVE TO AN

ABORTION CLINIC, AND MY

BIRTH MOTHER HAD A SURGICAL

ABORTION AT FIVE MONTHS

ALONE.

AFTER HAVING HER SURGICAL

ABORTION THAT DAY, SHE WENT

HOME TO HER, I BELIEVE,

EIGHTH GRADE LIFE.

SHE WAS IN GYM CLASS WITH

HER BEST FRIEND, I BELIEVE

ABOUT FOUR WEEKS LATER, AND

HER FRIEND SAID, HAVE YOU

BEEN BACK TO THE DOCTOR?

THINGS DON'T SEEM RIGHT.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO GET

YOURSELF CHECKED OUT AND

MAKE SURE THAT NOTHING ELSE

IS WRONG.

AND SO SHE HAD HER MOM TAKE

HER BACK TO THE SAME

ABORTIONIST TO EXAMINE HER.

AND AT THAT MOMENT SHE WAS

TOLD THE MOST SHOCKING WORDS

SHE HAD EVER HEARD IN HER

ENTIRE LIFE.

"YOU'RE STILL PREGNANT."

YOUR ABORTION WAS

SUCCESSFUL, BUT YOU'RE STILL

PREGNANT.

YOU WERE PREGNANT WITH

TWINS.

ONE WAS ABORTED, BUT ONE HAS

SURVIVED, AND SO YOU'RE

STILL MOTHERING A CHILD IN

YOUR WOMB.

SHE WAS TOLD THAT HER

AMNIOTIC FLUID WHICH IS IN

THE SACK, AND WHICH HOLDS

THE BABY TOGETHER AND GIVES

THE BABY NUTRIENTS, HAD BEEN

BROKEN.

MY BIRTH MOTHER DELIVERED A

LITTLE BABY GIRL TWO WEEKS

LATER, AND THAT WAS ME.

WHEN I WAS BORN, I WEIGHED

3 POUNDS, 2 OUNCES.

MY HIPS WERE DISLOCATED, AND

MY FEET WERE TURNED IN AS

CLUBBED FEET.

I HAD TO STAY IN THE

HOSPITAL FOR TWO AND A HALF

MONTHS.

I WAS ON LIFE SUPPORT.

WHEN I WAS RELEASED, I HAD

CASTS ON MY FEET TO CORRECT

MY CLUBBED FEET, AND I HAD A

HARNESS ON MY HIPS TO

HOPEFULLY CORRECT MY -- PUT

MY HIPS BACK INTO PLACE.

AND THROUGH THE NEXT COUPLE

YEARS, I WENT THROUGH

MULTIPLE CASTS, EVEN BODY

CASTS, TO KIND OF FORM MY

BODY BACK TOGETHER, ALTHOUGH

IT SOUNDS LIKE A HORROR

STORY AND MANY HAVE SAID,

WELL, AREN'T YOU ANGRY?

AREN'T YOU UPSET?

AND I SAY, NO, BECAUSE MY

BIRTH MOTHER IS PROBABLY MY

BIGGEST HERO.

BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO

TELL ME.

AND THROUGH HER COURAGE AND

THROUGH HER STRENGTH AND HER

SELFLESSNESS, PEOPLE'S LIVES

ARE BEING CHANGED.

ABORTION DOESN'T JUST AFFECT

ONE PERSON.

IT IS A DOMINO EFFECT.

AND EVEN THOUGH HAD

HAPPENED, IT HAS TURNED INTO

SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL.

GOD HAS REALLY TAUGHT ME TO

RELY ON HIM THAT THIS IS NOT

ABOUT ME.

THAT IT'S ABOUT HIM.

IT'S ABOUT HIS GRACE.

AND IT'S ABOUT HIS AMAZING

GIFT OF LIFE THAT HE HAS

GIVEN US.

EVEN THOUGH LIFE LOOKS LIKE

A GIVEN BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE

IT, IT'S A GIFT.

HE IS ABLE TO SPEAK THROUGH

MY STORY AND THROUGH MY

BIRTH MOTHER'S STORY,

THROUGH MY PARENTS' STORY

AND SHARE THAT GIFT WITH THE

WORLD.

Terry: CLAIRE HAS AN

AMAZING STORY TO TELL,

DOESN'T SHE?

AND SHE IS ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT.

IT IS NOT REALLY ABOUT HER.

IT IS NOT REALLY ABOUT YOU

OR ME.

IT IS ABOUT THE GIFT OF LIFE

FROM GOD.

AND THE CAPACITY THAT HE

WANTS US TO HAVE TO LIVE IT

ABUNDANTLY, TO CHERISH IT,

TO TREASURE IT, TO KNOW HOW

VALUABLE IT IS.

THINGS HAPPEN IN LIFE.

CHOICES ARE MADE.

A 13-YEAR-OLD GETS PREGNANT,

AND A MOTHER IS ALREADY

UNDER THE PILE AND DOESN'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO, AND SAYS

THERE IS ONLY ONE CHOICE.

WE NEED TO VALUE LIFE.

WE NEED TO VALUE LIFE.

I CAN NOT TELL YOU HOW MANY

PEOPLE I TALK TO ABOUT THE

ISSUE OF LIFE, OF ABORTION,

WHO SAY, I COULDN'T PLACE A

CHILD FOR ADOPTION.

I JUST COULDN'T HAVE A CHILD

OUT THERE THAT BELONGED TO

ME AND I WOULDN'T KNOW WHERE

THEY ARE.

LISTEN, LIFE IS NOT YOURS

AND MINE TO TAKE.

GOD GIVES IT.

THERE ARE FAMILIES WILLING

TO TAKE CHILDREN AND TO LOVE

THEM.

I WANT TO SAY TO YOU TODAY

IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THIS

SITUATION, GIVE THE GIFT OF

LIFE YOURSELF.

WILL IT COST YOU SOMETHING?

YES.

BUT, BELIEVE ME, IT WILL

COST YOU SOMETHING TO END

LIFE AS WELL.

JESUS SAID HE CAME THAT WE

MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT

ABUNDANTLY.

YOU KNOW WHAT HE SPECIALIZES

IN?

REDEMPTION.

TAKING WHAT IS BROKEN,

TAKING WHAT'S LOST, TAKING

WHAT'S PAINFUL, AND MAKING

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL OUT OF

IT.

IF YOU FIND YOURSELF

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE WANT

TO TAKE

SOME

TIME TO ANSWER THE

E-MAIL QUESTIONS YOU SENT

IN.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM

DEBBIE, WHO SAYS, "OUR

PASTOR JUST TOLD THE

CONGREGATION IF WE DIDN'T

SIGN UP FOR SMALL GROUPS AND

GET INVOLVED IN CHURCH, TO

GO FIND OTHER CHURCH.

IS THIS WRONG FOR HIM TO

DEMAND ATTENDEES TO SERVE OR

GET OUT.

I'M DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE IT

IS HARD ENOUGH TO GET MY

HUSBAND TO GO TO CHURCH, AND

NOW HE DOESN'T WANT TO GO AT

ALL.

SHOULD I GO TO CHURCH

WITHOUT MY HUSBAND OR FIND

ANOTHER CHURCH THAT DOESN'T

PRESSURE MY HUSBAND SO

MUCH?"

Pat: I CAN'T ANSWER ALL

OF THE QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR

PERSONAL LIFE, BUT I WILL

SAY THIS: I THINK

PARTICIPATION IN YOUR CHURCH

IS A GOOD THING.

AND SMALL GROUPS ARE A

BLESSING.

CHO OVER IN KOREA HAS HIS 60

OR 70 MEMBERS ALL IN SMALL

GROUPS BECAUSE IT IS VERY

IMPORTANT TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP

TOGETHER AND PRAY TOGETHER.

I THINK THE PASTOR PERHAPS

IS BEING A LITTLE HARSH, BUT

NEVERTHELESS, THAT IS NOT A

BAD THING.

BUT IN TERMS OF TURNING OFF

YOUR HUSBAND, I THINK IT IS

TIME WE RECOGNIZE THAT A

CHURCH ISN'T A SOCIAL CLUB.

AND IT'S A COMMITMENT.

IT'S A COMMITMENT TO THE

LORD.

AND I THINK THERE HAS GOT TO

BE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

DISCIPLINE IN IT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO TELL

YOU SPECIFICALLY, BUT I

WOULDN'T GET YOUR BACK UP

QUITE AS MUCH AS IT IS RIGHT

NOW.

Terry: IT MUST BE

FRUSTRATING TO A PASTOR WHO

WANTS TO SEE TRANSFORMATION

IN THE LIVES OF HIS

CONGREGATION, AND THAT COMES

OUT OF RELATIONSHIP AND

INVOLVEMENT AND DRAWING

CLOSER

TO THE LORD.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW, BUT

WE DON'T HAVE ANY

DISCIPLINE.

IF THOSE PEOPLE DON'T DO

WHAT

THAT PASTOR WANTS, THEY

TROT DOWN THE STREET TO THE

METHODIST CHURCH OR THE

PRESBYTERIAN CHURC

H AND

THEY'RE WELCOMED, SO

THIS

IS

NOT SO.

Terry:

MARIANNE

SAYS, "I HAVE BEEN A

CHRISTIAN MOST OF MY LIFE

AND WAS TAUGHT YOU GO TO

HEAVEN RIGHT AFTER DEATH.

RECENTLY A FRIEND TOLD ME WE

STAY IN THE GROUND UNTIL THE

RAPTURE COMES.

WHICH IS IT?"

Pat: IT IS BOTH.

THE LORD TOLD THE THIEF ON

THE CROSS -- HE SAID

REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME

INTO YOUR KINGDOM.

AND JESUS SAID THIS DAY

YOU'LL BE WITH ME IN

PARADISE.

ON THE OTHER HAND, WE'RE

TAUGHT ABOUT THE APOSTLE

PAUL THAT WHEN THE LAST

TRUMP, THE DEAD IN CHRIST

WILL RISE AND WE WILL BE

WITH THE LORD.

I THINK IT IS BOTH.

I

THINK

OUR SPIRITS GO TO BE

WITH THE

LORD,

BUT OUR

BODIES AWAIT THE

RESURRECTION.

AND I THINK THEY'LL BE

JOINED TOGETHER AT THE

RESURRECTION.

SO IT IS BOTH.

Terry: THIS IS KATHLEEN

WHO SAYS, "LATELY I'VE BEEN

SEEKING A CLOSER

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

I PRAY AND HAVE PRAYED THE

SINNER'S PRAYER WITH PAT,

BUT I'M DESPERATELY SEEKING

A CLOSER AND MORE INTIMATE

RECALLS WITRELATIONSHIP

WITH THE LORD.

WHERE CAN

I

FIND

THAT, QUOTE,"PEACE THAT

SURPASSES

ALL UNDERSTAND?

."

"WHERE DO I BEGIN?"

Pat: SPEND TIME, YOU

WITH THE

BIBLE, AND

ESPECIALLY WITH

A NOTE PAD

AND A PEN, AND ASK THE LORD,

CLEANSE ME AND KNOW MY

HEART, AND SEE IF THERE IS

ANY WICKED WITHIN ME.

IF THERE

IS ANYTHING KEEPING

YOU FROM

GOD, WRITE THEM

DOWN.

AND WHEN YOU GET THROUGH,

ASK THE LORD, I ASK THAT YOU

FORGIVE THESE.

TAKE THAT PIECE OF PAPER,

CRUMBLE IT UP AND SET A

MATCH TO IT AND IT IS GONE.

BUT I THINK YOU MAY BE

HOLDING ON TO SOMETHING

YOU'RE NOT AWARE OF.

THE STORY IS TOLD ABOUT THAT

TUTONIC CHIEFTON WHO

ACCEPTED CHRIST, AND HE WAS

BAPTIZED, BUT

HE DIDN'T WANT

HIS AX HAND TO

GO UNDER THE

WATER BECAUSE HE

WANTED TO

BE ABLE

TO KILL PEOPLE.

SO HE HELD IT OUT.

SO MAKE

SURE YOUR AX HAND IS

UNDER THE WATER.

AND

WHEN THAT

HAPPENS, THE

GLORIOUS PRESENCE OF THE

LORD WILL FLOOD YOU.

Terry: HERE IS A

QUESTION THAT A LOT OF

PEOPLE WONDER: "WHAT HAPPENS

TO PEOPLE WHO DIE WITHOUT

EVER HAVING HEARD THE WORD

OF GOD OR HOW TO BE SAVED.

I OFTEN WONDER ABOUT PEOPLE

LIVING IN TRIBES AND

VILLAGES THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD WHO MAY NOT HAVE HAD

THE CHANCE TO HEAR THE WORD

OF GOD OR THOSE WITH BRAIN

TRAUMA.

I KNOW THAT GOD HAS MERCY.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WHO

DIE BUT HAVE NEVER HEARD OF

HOW TO BE SAVED?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT WE WILL BE JUDGED

ACCORDING TO WHAT WE KNOW.

IT IS REVELATION IN LIGHT OF

PRIVILEGE, OR OBEDIENCE IN

LIGHT OF PRIVILEGE.

SO IN YOUR LIFE, WHAT DO

THEY KNOW AND WHAT DO YOU

KNOW.

YOU HEARD ABOUT THE MAN WHO

WAS CREDITING IDOLS,

CREATING IDOLS FOR PEOPLE TO

WORSHIP.

AND SO THEY SAID WHERE DID

THE IDOLS COME FROM?

AND HE SAID FROM MY HAND.

SO I WANT TO WORSHIP THE GOD

WHO MADE MY HAND.

SO WE REALIZE THERE IS A GOD

IN HEAVEN, AND WE BEGIN TO

SAY WHAT IS HIS DEMAND FOR

ME?

AND THEN HE WILL BEGIN TO

SHOW US.

NOW, IF SOMEBODY IS -- IF

THERE IS NO CONSCIOUSNESS OF

THE LAW, THERE IS NO SIN.

IF

SOMEBODY IS AN IMBECILE,

A LITTLE BABY -- WE USED TO

TALK ABOUT THE

AGE

OF

ACCOUNTABILITY, AND IF

SOMEBODY DOESN'T KNOW, HOW

CAN HE BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE?

HOW CAN GOD PUNISH SOMEBODY

WHO

DOESN'T KNOW?

HE WON'T.

YOU KNOW HE IS GOING TO GIVE

PEOPLE A

CHANCE.

EVERYBODY IS GOING TO HAVE A

CHANCE, AND

HE WILL JUDGE

THEM IN THE LIGHT

OF WHAT

THEY

KNOW, WHAT REVELATION

THEY'VE

HAD, WHAT PRIVILEGE

THEY'VE HAD.

Terry: JUDE SAYS, "WHEN

JESUS RETURNS TO EARTH, WILL

HE BE AT THE MOUNT OF

OLIVES.

WE ASKED THIS IN OUR WEEKLY

BIBLE

STUDY, AND OUR TEACHER

SAID TO LOOK

IT UP AS

HOMEWORK."

Pat: I RECOMMEND YOU

GET THE BOOK OF ZACHARIAH,

AND YOU LOOK AT THE 13th

CHAPTER, AND YOU

FIND

THAT

HIS FEET WIL

L

STAND ON THE

MOUNT OF OLIVES.

TAKE THAT TO YOUR TEACHER

AND SAY THAT

YOU'VE DONE A

GREAT DEAL OF WORK, AND

THERE IT IS.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: AND WRITE A

THANK YOU NOTE TO PAT.

THIS IS GERALD WHO SAYS,

"SOME PASTORS SAY OR USE

JEREMIAH 29: 11 TO CONFIRM

THAT GOD HAS A PLAN FOR OUR

LIVES AND HE IS FOR US AND

WANTS TO BLESS US.

OTHER PASTORS SAY THIS

PASSAGE WAS SPOKEN FOR JUDAH

ONLY.

AND HOW

CAN

WE KNOW IF A

PARTICULAR SCRIPTURE IS FOR

US TODAY?"

Pat: TECHNICALLY WAS

SPOKEN TO THE JEWS WHO WERE

IN

CAPTIVITY.

AND GOD SAYS TO JEREMIAH,

I'VE GOT A PLAN FOR YOU TO

GIVE YOU A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

SO THEY

WEREN'T GOING TO

JUST

DIE

IN BABYLON AND HE

HAD A FUTURE FOR THEM.

SO THAT'S THERE.

BUT AT THE SAM

E TIME,

GOD

WILL SPEAK TO OUR HEARTS.

WE READ SOMETHING IN THE

BIBLE, AND

SUDDENLY

IT COMES

ALIVE TO US.

AND IT TRANSCENDS THE

HISTORIC

CONTEXT, AND IT

BECOMES

GOD SPEAKING TO US

IN OUR HEART.

WE USE THE TERM LOGO LOGOS

IN RAYMA.

AND

THIS

BECOMES

A

RAYMA, A

WORD SPOKEN IN OUR HEART.

AND THAT SCRIPTURE HAS BEEN

A BLESSING TO MANY, MANY

PEOPLE, THAT, INDEED, GOD

HAS A PLAN FOR EACH ONE OF

US.

Terry: THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR YOUR QUESTIONS, WE

APPRECIATE IT, AND YOU FOR

YOUR ANSWERS.

UP NEXT, HE IS THE MAN

BEHIND THE VIRAL HIT "WHY I

HATE RELIGION, BUT LOVE

JESUS."

MEET ARTIST JEFFERSON BETSY

AFTER THIS.

Pat: WE LIVE IN A WORLD

OF SOCIAL MEDIA, WHERE

THINGS GO VIRAL, AND THEY

SPREAD AROUND THE WORLD IN A

TWINKLING OF AN EYE.

WITHIN THREE DAYS AFTER JEFF

BESKI UPLOADED A VIDEO ON

YouTube, GET THIS, IT

HAD SIX MILLION VIEWS.

ANOTHER 21 MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE WATCHED IT SINCE THEN.

JEFF BECAME AN OVERNIGHT

STAR.

AS HE PREACHED ABOUT

CHRIST'S LOVE, SOMETHING HE

HAD EXPERIENCED FIRSTHAND

HIMSELF.

MY MOM AND MY DAD NEVER

WERE MARRIED.

THERE IS A LOT OF

INSECURITY.

I THINK WHEN YOU GROW UP IN

A SINGLE-PARENT HOUSEHOLD,

MOST OF THE THINGS I DID

WERE JUST TO BE NOTICED OR

KIND OF AFFIRMED.

THE EXPOSURE TO PORNOGRAPHY

THAT STARTED AROUND MIDDLE

SCHOOL TIME, IT STARTED TO

TAKE ME DOWN A PATH THAT WAS

DESTRUCTIVE.

I WAS A TROUBLE-MAKER AND I

WOULD GET IN FIGHTS AND I

WOULD STEAL THINGS, AND

ULTIMATELY ONE OF THE MIDDLE

SCHOOLS I WENT TO KICKED ME

OUT BECAUSE OF THAT.

I WANTED TO BE NOTICED.

I WANTED TO SEE THAT SOMEONE

SAW ME, APPRECIATED ME,

LOVED ME.

YOU KNOW, HIGH SCHOOL I WAS

THE KID WHERE I WAS PRETTY

GOOD AT BASEBALL.

I WAS IN THAT GROUP OF

FRIENDS WHERE WE WERE ALWAYS

THE GOOD KIDS.

BUT THEN IN THE UNDERGROUND

CULTURE OF HIGH SCHOOL, YOU

START TO DO THINGS AND BE

INVOLVED IN THINGS THAT

MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T BE

INVOLVED IN.

THERE WAS A HUGE GROWING OF

HYPOCRISY.

I KIND OF LIVED THIS DOUBLE

LIFE.

AND THEN WHEN I GOT TO

COLLEGE, PLAYING BASEBALL IN

COLLEGE, I REALIZED THERE IS

ALSO ANOTHER LIFESTYLE THAT

COULD ALSO GIVE ME THAT

AFFIRMATION.

SO GIRLS AND PARTYING

CONSUMED ME.

THEY WERE KIND OF MY IDOLS

OR MY GODS, AND IN THE

MIDDLE FRESHMAN YEAR THEY

BOTH GOT DIDN'T FROM ME.

TAKEN FROM ME.

I HAD A REALLY SERIOUS

GIRLFRIEND AND SHE BROKE UP

WITH ME.

AND PARTYING HAD ITS

RAMIFICATIONS BECAUSE I WAS

PUT ON PROBATION BECAUSE MY

G.P.A. WAS GOING OW SO LOW

AND I GOT KICKED OFF THE

BASEBALL TEAM.

AND I REA REALIZED MY GODS

GOT PULLED FROM ME AND I

REALIZED THEY DIDN'T WORK.

THERE WAS A THREE-MONTH

PERIOD WHICH I RESEARCHED.

I ALWAYS THOUGHT JESUS WAS

BELOW ME AND I COULD MORPH

HIM INTO WHAT I WANT HIM TO

BE.

BUT I SAW THIS GOD IN

SCRIPTURE WHO HUMBLES

HIMSELF AND HE SAYS I'M

GOING TO BE MILD AND LIVE A

LIFE SOMEONE COULD NEVER

LIVE, AND I'LL DIE THE DEATH

SOMEONE COULDN'T DIE.

AND HE SEES ME IN MY MESS

AND SAYS I STILL WANT YOU,

AND I SAY, OH, MY GOODNESS,

I LOVE HIM.

I LOVE HIM AND I WANT IN.

I THOUGHT THAT THE

PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION OR THE

STRUGGLE WITH LUST WOULD GO

AWAY IMMEDIATELY.

I THOUGHT THE STRUGGLE WITH

ANGER WOULD GO AWAY

IMMEDIATELY.

AND I STARTED TO FAIL AND

FAIL AND FAIL AND FAIL.

BUT THEN I THOUGHT I HAD TO

HIDE THAT AND NOT LET ANYONE

KNOW.

THERE WAS A SWEET MOMENT

ABOUT A YEAR IN WHEN I WAS

FINALLY BROKE WITH ONE OF MY

MENTORS AND I JUST TOLD

HIM.

AND HE REALLY JUST PREACHED

THE GOSPEL TO ME IN THAT

MOMENT.

HE WAS VULNERABLE ABOUT HIS

OWN SIN AND TOLD ME ABOUT

HIS OWN STRUGGLE.

I STARTED TO REALIZE THAT IT

WASN'T BY MY PERSONAL EFFORT

THAT SIN WOULD FALL BY THE

WAY SIDE, "FOR THE GRACE OF

GOD HAS APPEARED, BRINGING

SALVATION TO ALL MEN."

IT SAYS THE GREAT OF GOD IS

WHAT TRAINS US TO SAY NO TO

SIN.

THAT'S WHEN I STARTED TO

FALL BY THE WAYSIDE, WHEN I

SAW THAT THE CHRISTIAN LIFE

IS ABOUT INTIMACY WITH YOUR

CREATOR, IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING AND FAILING, AND

TRUSTING IN JESUS TO COVER

THAT THING, RATHER THAN JUST

TRYING TO BE BETTER.

ONE PARTICULARLY THING I TRY

TO SAY FROM MY TESTIMONY IS

THAT SIN CAN NEVER GO SO FAR

OUT THAT THE GRACE OF GOD

CAN'T GO SO FAR OUT AND

REDEEM IT.

KNOWING THAT HE HAS SEEN IT

ALL, HE STILL WANTS YOU AND

STILL WANTS YOU TO COME INTO

A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

Pat: GOOD WORD, JEFF.

THE GRACE OF GOD TEACHES US

TO DENY UNGODLYNESS.

THE GRACE OF GOD HAS

APPEARED, AND EARTHLY LUST,

WE'RE FREED.

GOD HAS COME TO SET US

FREE.

I WAS READING TODAY IN

COLOSSIANS, WHERE HE SAYS IN

CHRIST DWELLS ALL OF THE

FULLNESS OF THE GOD HEAD

BODILY.

AND I THINK OF THIS ENORMOUS

UNIVERSE THAT WE HAVE, AND

THE GOD WHO MADE IT, HE IS

OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSE.

AND THIS THING IS SO VAST WE

TALK IN TERMS OF MILLIONS OF

LIGHT YEARS.

IT IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE.

AND YET THE ONE WHO CREATED

ALL OF THAT DWELT IN JESUS.

AND IN HIM ARE HIDDEN ALL OF

THE TREASURES OF WISDOM AND

KNOWLEDGE.

IN JESUS ARE HID EVERYTHING

THAT YOU NEED FOR YOUR

LIFE.

JESUS IS PERFECT

EVERYTHING.

AND HE SAYS TO YOU AND ME,

IF YOU WILL RECEIVE ME, I

WILL COME AND I WILL LIVE

WITH YOU.

AND MY FATHER WILL LIVE WITH

YOU.

AND WE WILL MAKE OUR ABODE

WITH YOU.

AND YOU WILL BE PART OF US.

WE WILL BE IN YOU, AND YOU

WILL BE IN US.

IT'S LIKE BREATHING AIR.

YOU'RE IN THE AIR.

YOU BREATHE THE AIR.

YOU'RE IN IT, AND IT'S IN

YOU.

YOU'RE IN GOD.

AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW THAT,

IT'S SO WONDERFUL.

STOP FIGHTING AND LET THE

LORD TAKE OVER.

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN A

SIMPLE PRAYER.

AND IF YOU'LL CALL UPON THE

NAME OF THE LORD, HE WILL

COME AND BE WITH YOU.

PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- PRAY WITH ME NOW.

JESUS, I CALL UPON YOU NOW,

LORD.

PRAY WITH ME.

I CALL UPON YOU NOW, LORD,

AND I GIVE YOU MY HEART.

AND I ASK, LORD, THAT YOU

WILL COME AND DWELL WITH ME,

THAT THE FATHER WILL COME

AND DWELL WITH ME.

FILL ME, LORD, WITH

YOURSELF.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I AM

YOURS.

AND I THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE

MINE.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO

PRAYED, MAY THE ANOINTING OF

THE SPIRIT COME UPON THEM

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED, I HAVE

SOMETHING I WANT TO GIVE

YOU.

YOU SAY WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

I KNOW THERE ARE A LOT WHO

PRAYED A SHORT PRAYER, BUT

THE LORD HEARD IT AND HE

ANSWERED IT.

BUT I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A

LITTLE C.D., A COMPACT DISC,

AND IT IS CALLED "A NEW

DAY."

AND IT WILL TELL YOU ABOUT

WHAT YOU DO NEXT.

WHY DON'T YOU GIVE US A

CALL.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER,

1-800-759-0700.

AND SAY I PRAYED WITH PAT,

AND I JUST WANT TO

LET YOU

KNOW, AND I WANT THIS "A NEW

DAY."

1-800-759-0700.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS

PROGRAM.

WE KNOW ABOUT THE RIGHT TO

BEAR ARMS, BUT HOW FAR DOES

THE SECOND

AMENDMENT GOING?

WE'LL HEAR FROM BOTH SIDES

ON WEDNESDAY'S PROGRAM.

SEE YOU THEN.
