SUMMER IS RIGHT AROUND THE

CORNER.

DON'T SPEND YOUR DAYS SLAVING

OVER A HOT STOVE.

TERRY: WHAT IS IT LIKE TO

PRESENT THIS TO FRIENDS AND

FAMILY ON A NICE SUMMER DAY.

JOHN MCLEMORE SHARES HIS DAD

GUM GOOD RECIPE.

PLUS A DRUMMER THAT MARCHED TO

HIS OWN BEAT.

I COULDN'T REMEMBER WHERE I

WAS.

THE SONGS THAT HELPED ME FIND

HIS RHYTHM.

I WOKE UP.

HE KNEW IT WOULD KEEP ME THERE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

[APPLAUSE]

PAT: WELCOME TO THIS EDITION

OF "THE 700 CLUB" YOU KNOW IF I

WERE CRAZY ENOUGH TO GET ON A

TIGHT WIRE AND WALK ALONG, I

CERTAINLY WOULD BE DOING WHAT

NIK WALLENDA DID, THANK YOU,

JESUS.

ALL RIGHT.

GRAND CANYON, NO TETHER.

ONE OF THE MOST MAJESTIC PLACES

ON EARTH.

NIK WALLENDA GOT THE CHANCE TO

SEE IF HE COULD DO WHAT NO MAN

HAD EVER DONE BEFORE.

DON'T LOOK DOWN.

PAT: 1500 FEET IN THE AIR, ON

A TIGHT RIPE.

LOOK AT HIM THANKING THE LORD.

I WOULDN'T DO THAT.

WENDY: I WOULDN'T, NO WAY.

SEVENTH GENERATIONS.

HIS KIDS DON'T WANT TO DO IT,

THOUGH.

PAT: HIS KIDS ARE SMART.

A LOT OF THOSE WALLENDA'S HAVE

DIED.

NIK WALLENDA IS A GREAT

CHRISTIAN.

HE HAS BEEN ON THE SHOW SEVERAL

TIMES.

HE IS GOING TO TRY TO WALK IN

WALL STREET, SOME WHERE IN NEW

YORK CITY.

EDWARD SNOWDEN IS A MAN WITHOUT

A COUNTRY.

HE IS ON THE RUN TODAY LOOKING

FOR POLITICAL ASYLUM.

WENDY: WHO LEAKED INTELLIGENT

SECRETS TRYING TO GET TO

ECUADOR.

AMERICAN OFFICIALS ARE TRYING TO

STOP HIM.

HEATHER SELLS HAS MORE.

REPORTER: EDWARD SNOWDEN

CONTINUES TO EVADE THE U.S. THE

U.S. ASKED HONG KONG TO ARREST

HIM AND BEGIN THE EXTRADITION

PROCESS.

HONG KONG ALLOWED SNOWDEN TO

LEAVE FOR RUSSIA, DESPITE HAVING

HIS PASSPORT REVOKED.

NEW WHAT IS INFERIOR ATING

IS PRIME MINISTER VLADIMIR

PUTTEN, HE SEEMS ALMOST EAGER TO

PUT AN EYE IN THE UNITED STATES,

SYRIA, IRAN, NOW WITH SNOWDEN.

THAT IS NOT HOW ALLIES SHOULD

TREAT ONE ANOTHER.

IT WILL HAVE SERIOUS

CONSEQUENCES.

REPORTER: SPOKESMAN FOR

PUTTEN SAYS SNOWDEN'S ARRIVAL

WAS UNEXPECTED.

U.S. DEMAND YOU SHALL RELEASE

HIM.

THIS IS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO IS

NOT ACTING IN MY OPINION WITH

NOBLE TENT.

REPORTER: TODAY GROWING

CONCERN FORMER NSA CONTRACTOR

WILL PASS IT ON TO AMERICA'S

RIVALS.

SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN SAID ON

CBS'S "FACE THE NATION"

HE HAS MORE THAN 200 SENSITIVE

DOCUMENTS.

SNOWDEN SAYS HE IS TRAVELING

WITH NUMEROUS AMERICAN

INTELLIGENT SECRETS.

I HAD ACCESS TO EVERYONE

WORKING AT THE NSA, ENTIRE

INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY.

REPORTER: DESPITE WARNINGS

FROM U.S., THEY ARE NOT EXPECTED

TO STOP SNOWDEN ON HIS WAY TO

ECUADOR.

THEY ARE CONSIDERING HIS REQUEST

FOR ASYLUM.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

PAT: YOU KNOW, I HAVE NO

BRIEF FOR -- I THINK WIKILEAKS

WAS VICIOUS AND CRIMINAL TO

RELEASE DETAILS OF OUR

NEGOTIATIONS WITH OUR ALLIES,

TERRIBLE.

I AM NOT SURE SNOWDEN HAS DONE

ANYTHING THAT BAD.

THEY CALL HIM A TRAITOR AND SO

FORTH.

JURY IS STILL OUT.

I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE

DIVIDED 50/50, WENDY, WHAT IS

YOUR TAKE?

WENDY: I HAVE HEARD IT BOTH

WAYS.

I HAVE HEARD HE IS A HERO.

SOME WAYS YOU CAN SEE THAT, DID

US A FAVOR EXPOSING A BIG SECRET

THING GOING ON.

ALSO SEE, DO WE NEED THIS?

I DON'T KNOW.

PAT: IT IS SO MASSIVE, SO

ULTIMATELY FRIGHTENING, I THINK

HE HAS DONE UZ A FAVOR.

WE'LL SEE.

OF COURSE THEY ARE GETTING INTO

THE PRESS, ECUADOR HIT ASANGE

AND TRYING TO GET INTO THAT AREA

AS QUICKLY.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE IS GOING TO

CUBA OR ECUADOR.

TRAVEL PLANS, I AM NOT PRIVY TO

THEM.

NEVERTHELESS, WE'LL SEE.

I THINK WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

SOME OF THESE THINGS.

WE DON'T HAVE TO KNOW DETAILS

BUT WE NEED TO KNOW A LOT MORE

THAN WE HAVE.

WELL, HERE AT HOME, SUPREME

COURT IS GETTING READY FOR SOME

VERY IMPORTANT RULINGS THIS

WEEK.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS MORE FROM THE

CBN NEWS ROOM.

REPORTER: THANKS, PAT,

HISTORIC WEEK AT THE SUPREME

COURT.

COURT IS GOING TO DECIDE ON

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE AND

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.

AND OTHER CASES, FEDERAL DEFENSE

OF MARRIAGE ACT AND PROPOSITION

8 IN CALIFORNIA.

MEASURE DEFINES MARRIAGE BETWEEN

ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN.

COURT WILL RELEASE DECISION ON A

CASE INVOLVING HOW COLLEGES USE

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IN ADMITTING

STUDENTS.

COURT HAS RULINGS INVOLVING

VOTER RIGHTS, PRIVATE PROPERTY

AND GENERIC DRUGS.

SENATOR RAND PAUL WARNING THE

UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IS OUT

OF CONTROL.

NUMEROUS SCANDALS QUICKLY COME

AND GONE FOR OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

BUT THE REPUBLICAN SENATOR SAYS

THE COMMON THREAT IN ALL OF THEM

IS BUREAUCRACY AND PRESIDENCY

NOW HAVE TOO MUCH POWER.

I AM STARTING TO THINK THERE

ARE PUBLIC RELATIONS PLOY IS TO

DISPLACE ONE'S CANDLE WITH

ANOTHER.

WHAT IS THE NEXUS, IT IS REALLY

A GOVERNMENT THAT IS DRUNK ON

POWER.

IT IS A GOVERNMENT THAT HAS

ALLOWED SO MUCH POWER TO

GRAVITATE TO THE PRESIDENCY, AS

AN EXTENSION TO THE BUREAUCRACY.

REPORTER: PAUL SAID WHEN HE

CAME TO WASHINGTON, HE SAID

BUREAUCRATS ARE WRITING THE

LAWS.

BUREAUCRATS HAVE ADDED 20,000

PAGES OF REGULATION.

PAT, IT IS NO SURPRISE, ONLY 6%

OF AMERICAN VOTERS HAVE A

POSITIVE OUTLOOK ON THE WORK

CONGRESS IS DOING TODAY.

PAT: IT IS NOT JUST CONGRESS.

IT IS THIS ADMINISTRATIVE THING.

WHAT IS HAPPENING, THE

BUREAUCRACY IS SLOWLY CHOKING

THE CREATIVE IMPULSE OF THE

UNITED STATES.

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, I SAW A

TAKE FROM ALEXIS TO TOKEVILLE

WRITING ON DEMOCRACY AND HOW

WONDERFUL AND PRIVATE

INSTITUTIONS AND CIVIC GROUPS

MAKING THIS COUNTRY GREAT.

MARVELOUS TO SEE.

HE WARNED THE TIME WOULD COME

GOVERNMENT COULD QUELL CH IT.

EVERY BUREAU HAS HUNDREDS OF

LAWYERS.

LAWYERS, I HAVE TO JUSTIFY MY

HUGE SALARY AND THE WAY I DO IT

IS BY WRITING RULES AND

REGULATIONS MAKING THIS COUNTRY

IN THEIR OPINION BETTER.

THEY ARE GOING TO PUT, WELL, WEB

OF CONTROLS OVER THE AVERAGE

CITIZEN, IT IS TERRIBLE AND

NEEDS TO BE STOPPED.

WE NEED EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT

SAYS WE ARE GOING TO ELIMINATE

THOSE THINGS.

CANCEL THEM, NULLIFY THEM, THEY

ARE DESTROYING THE FABRIC, THE

GREATNESS OF AMERICA.

WE CAN'T APPLAUD THEM.

I AM SORRY.

WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS

DEVASTATING TO THE FUTURE OF

THIS NATION.

WE CAN'T ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN.

HERE IS GEORGE.

REPORTER: PAT, THE UNITED

STATES HAS AROUND 900 TROOPS IN

JORDAN TO STRENGTHEN IT FROM THE

CIVIL WAR NEXT DOOR IN SYRIA.

SOME OF THE MILITARY ARE STAYING

ON FROM A JOINT MILITARY

EXERCISE IN SYRIA.

UNDER BASHAR ASSAD HAD 19

NATIONS COMING TOGETHER IN A

SHOW OF POWER, FIGHTER JETS,

TANKS AND ATTACK HELICOPTERS

TRAINED IN JORDAN SENDING A

CLEAR MESSAGE THAT SOURCES COULD

INTERVENE.

THERE IS AT LEAST SOMETHING

HERE THAT MIGHT BE ABLE TO

PROTECT US.

REPORTER: JORDAN SAYS THE

NUMBER OF U.S. FORCES IS SMALL

AND ISN'T INTENDED FOR A WAR ON

SYRIA.

HEAD OF EGYPT'S ARMY WARNING THE

MILITARY IS WILLING TO INTERVENE

BECAUSE OF BRUTAL VIOLENCE.

EGYPT'S PRESIDENT MOHAMMED MORSI

PLANNING FOR MASS DEMONSTRATIONS

AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

MILITARY IS CONCERNED ABOUT

CIVIL WARFARE.

MEANWHILE SUPPORTERS OF EGYPT'S

COPTIC CHRISTIANS FACE GROWING

PERSECUTION.

AT A MEETING IN WASHINGTON,

D.C., A NIGERIAN BISHOP HAS SEEN

PUR

PERSECUTION.

DON'T YOU COMPROMISE THE

FAITH WE ARE LIVING AND DYING

FOR.

WE ARE COMPROMISING THAT FAITH.

OR OTHERS INCLUDING COPTIC

CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT ARE DYING

FOR.

WE MUST USE OUR FREEDOM TO

DEFEND FREEDOM OF OTHERS.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF HEWLETT

PACKARD -- HUMANITARIAN TRUST.

NIK WALLENDA IS THE FIRST PERSON

TO MAKE THE TRIP WITHOUT A

TETHER OR A SAFETY NET.

PRAISE YOU, JESUS.

REPORTER: IT TOOK NIK

WALLENDA 22 MINUTES TO COMPLETE

THE DARING WALK ACROSS THE GRAND

CANYON.

34-YEAR-OLD DARE LEVEL IS A

SEVENTH GENERATION, A CLAN THAT

IS NO STRANGER TO DEATH DEFYING

FEETS.

IN 1970S, HIS GREAT GRANDFATHER

FELL TO HIS DEATH IN PUERTO

RICO.

INCLUDING A COUSIN AND UNCLE

PERISHED WHILE PERFORMING WIRE

WALKING STUNTS.

IN AN INTERVIEW ON "THE 700

CLUB" HE DOESN'T SEE IT THAT

RISKY.

I DON'T SEE WHAT I AM DOING

IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN A POLICE

OFFICER.

I DON'T THINK GOD HOLDS ME ON

THE WIRE.

BUT GOD HAS GIVEN ME A UNIQUE

TALENT AND UP TO ME WHETHER OR

NOT I TRAIN.

REPORTER: HE SEES IT AS A

GIFT FOR GOD.

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT GOD

HAS GIVEN ME A UNIQUE TALENT.

I CAN USE IT TO BRING GLORY TO

HIS NAME.

REPORTER: HE DOES IT FOR A

HIGHER PURPOSE.

I GET IN A CIRCLE AND PRAY

WITH MY FAMILY.

LET GOD GET THE GLORY OUT OF

WHAT I AM DOING.

THAT IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT

THAT PEOPLE DON'T PRAISE NIK

WALLENDA BUT GOD FOR THESE

AMAZING ABILITIES.

IT IS HARD TO DENY THERE IS A

GOD WHEN YOU SEE THE GRAND

CANYON.

I LIKE TO SHOW THESE AMAZING

PLACES OFF AROUND THE WORLD.

REPORTER: INCREDIBLE.

NIK WALLENDA'S NEXT STUNT WILL

BE A TIGHT ROPE WALK BETWEEN

EMPIRE STATE BUILDING AND

CHRYSLER BUILDING IN NEW YORK.

YOU CAN SEE THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW

ON CBN.COM.

PAT, MY FAMILY WERE WATCHING

LIKE THIS.

AS HE IS WALKING ACROSS THE ROPE

HE IS PRAYING JESUS.

IN THE MIDDLE HE THANKS ALL THE

PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED HIM.

DUDE, FOCUS ON THE LINE.

GET ACROSS THE LINE.

[LAUGHTER].

PAT: YOU KNOW I AM NOT -- HE

HAS BEEN ON THE SHOW, WONDERFUL

GUY.

VERY HUMBLE.

I DO BELIEVE IT IS TIME TO PACK

IT UP.

NIK, YOU HAVE DONE NIAGRA FALLS,

GRAND CANYON.

RETIRE TO GLORY.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR GRANDCHILDREN,

CHILDREN, WHAT HAVE YOU.

YOU ARE DEFYING THE LAW OF

AVERAGE, SOONER OR LATER A GUST

OF WIND, SOME CORD IS GOING TO

SNAP, SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN.

DOESN'T HAVE TO.

WENDY: WHAT ABOUT THE FACT

GOD HAS GIVEN HIM THE TALL LENT.

PAT: HE HAS SHOWN WHAT A

WONDERFUL THING IT IS.

ENOUGH.

GO AROUND THE WORLD, LETS PEOPLE

PRAISE YOU AND TELL YOU WHAT A

GREAT HIGH WIRE WALKER YOU ARE

AND HOLD REVIVAL MEETINGS.

WENDY: WHERE DO YOU GO AFTER

THE GRAND CANYON?

PAT: THEY SET UP ARTIFICIAL

WIND GUSTS.

IN BOSTON, WINDOWS WERE POPPING

OUT BECAUSE OF THE ARTIFICIAL

WIND.

THEY HAVE THAT THING IN THE

GRAND CANYON.

HE WAS GRATEFUL THAT THE WIND

DIDN'T BLOW WHILE HE WAS WALKING

THAT WIRE.

NO TETHER, NO SAFETY NET.

HE HAS ENOUGH TRAGEDY.

I AM NOT THE ONE TO ADVISE HIM.

HE IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL HUMAN

BEING.

I THINK THE TIME HAS COME TO SAY

I HAVE DONE IT.

GOD, GIVE ME SOME OTHER LINE OF

WORK.

[LAUGHTER].

WENDY: ALL RIGHT.

CONGRATULATIONS TO HIM.

COMING UP, THE ALARMING NUMBER

OF AMERICANS ENTERING THEIR

GOLDEN YEARS AND SITTING ON A

GOOSE EGG FOR THEIR NEST EGG.

WORSE IF YOU LOOK AT THE LOW

INCOME, 60% WILL RUN SHORT OF

MONEY SOME TIME IN RETIREMENT.

WENDY: FIND OUT WHAT IS BEING

DONE TO HELP THESE SENIORS AND

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO AVOID BEING

ONE OF THEM, NEXT.

WENDY: TUESDAY... WE NEED

TO CRASH CART.

NINE MINUTES WITHOUT A PULSE.

I FELT CALM AND PEACEFUL.

WENDY: NINE MINUTES WITHOUT

BREATHING.

I WAS VERY AWARE OF THE FACT

I JUST DIED.

WENDY: A MOTHER THAT SPENT

NINE MINUTES IN ETERNITY.

HE ALLOWED ME TO LOOK THROUGH

HIS EYES AND SEE THE TRUTH.

WENDY: AND CAME BACK TO SHARE

HER STORY TUESDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

PAT: RETIREMENT.

YOU HEAR SO MUCH ABOUT

RETIREMENT.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

THERE WAS A TIME PEOPLE DIDN'T

RETIRE, THEY DIED AT 62, 63, 58.

LOOK AT FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT.

HE LOOKED LIKE THE ANCIENT OF

DAYS.

HE WAS ONLY 62 WHEN HE DIED.

LYNDON JOHNSON QUITE YOUNG.

WHEN THEY SET UP SOCIAL SECURITY

HARDLY ANYBODY GOT TO 65.

THANKS TO ADVANCES OF MEDICINE

AND NUTRITION, PEOPLE ARE LIVING

A LOT LONGER.

THAT IS A GOOD THING BUT IT CAN

BE A BAD THING.

WHEN IT COMES TO GROWING OLD IN

AMERICA, THERE IS GOOD NEWS AND

BAD NEWS.

WORKERS ARE LIVING LONGER.

UNFORTUNATELY THEY ARE NOT

SAVING ENOUGH FOR THAT SO-CALLED

GOLDEN AGE RETIREMENT.

THAT COULD MEAN VERY UNPLEASANT

CONSEQUENCES AS CHARLENE ISRAEL

REPORTS IN THIS EXCELLENT STORY

ABOUT WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO

MANY OF YOU.

REPORTER: AL DUMAR STARTED

MAKING ICE CREAM CONES AT HIS

FAMILY OWNED RESTAURANT IN 1946.

AT 91, HIS LOVE FOR THE JOB

KEEPS HIM GOING.

A LOT OF PEOPLE, AN OLD TIMER

KEEP ON WORKING ANYHOW WHEN IT

IS TIME FOR RETIREMENT AGE THEY

KEEP ON.

REPORTER: HIS SON RUNS IT

NOW.

HE TEACHES HIM TO KEEP ON.

MY DAD WAS BORN IN 1929.

HE SAID BASED ON THE WAY THINGS

ARE GOING, YOU YOUNGER FOLKS ARE

GOING TO DIE UNTIL NEAR THE END.

REPORTER: UNLIKE BIG AL, MORE

AND MORE WORKERS WILL STAY ON

THE JOB AND PUT OFF RETIREMENT

DUE TO BAD FINANCIAL PLANNING.

WHEN IT COMES TO RETIREMENT,

MOST AMERICANS WORK TO 65.

WHEN IT COMES TO SAVING FOR

RETIREMENT, MOST COME UP SHORT.

I DON'T THINK I'LL EVER

RETIRE.

I THINK IT IS A QUESTION OF

MONEY.

SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS ARE

UNU

UNRELIABLE.

REPORTER: MORE THAN HALF OF

AMERICAN HOUSE HOLDS RISK NOT

HAVING SAVED ENOUGH TO MAINTAIN

THEIR STANDARD OF LIVING IN

RETIREMENT.

I HAVEN'T SAVED ENOUGH FOR

RETIREMENT.

I AM GOING TO WORK AS LONG AS I

CAN.

REPORTER: HE IS AMONG 28% OF

AMERICANS, WHO HAVE NO

CONFIDENCE TO RETIRE

COMFORTABLY.

JACK VANDERHIGH SAYS THAT IS THE

WORST CONFIDENCE LEVEL IN THE

STUDY'S HISTORY.

WE FIND 44% OF THE HOUSE

HOLDS RUN SHORT OF MONEY IN

RETIREMENT.

IT IS EVEN WORSE THAT WE LOOK AT

THE LOW INCOME COURTS, IT IS

OVER 60% RUN SHORT OF MONEY SOME

TIME IN RETIREMENT.

REPORTER: MANY EXPECT TO LIVE

OFF SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS AND

DEPEND ON MEDICARE.

HOWEVER SOCIAL SECURITY ON TRACK

TO RUN OUT BY 2033.

WITHIN TWO DECADES, WE ARE

LOOKING AT A SITUATION WHERE THE

TRUST FUND ITSELF IS LIKELY TO

BE DEPLETED.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN AS SOME PEOPLE

UNFORTUNATELY THINK THAT MEANS

NO SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS.

IT DOES MEAN THAT THERE WILL BE

ONLY ENOUGH MONEY AVAILABLE TO

PAY ABOUT 72-75% OF WHAT WAS

PROMISED.

REPORTER: WHEN THE SOCIAL

SECURITY TRUST FUND INTRODUCED

IN 1930S, LIFE EXPECTANCY DIDN'T

REACH RETIREMENT AGE OF 65.

IN 1930, 58 YEARS FOR MEN, 62

FOR WOMEN.

THAT FORMULA QUICKLY OUTDATED

AND OVER THE NEXT 60 YEARS

NUMBER OF SENIORS EXPLODED.

IN 30S, 6.7 MILLION AMERICANS

LIVE TO BE 65 OR OLDER BY 2000

IT GREW TO 35 MILLION.

CURRENTLY 58 MILLION AMERICANS

RECEIVE SOCIAL SECURITY

BENEFITS.

GOVERNMENT IS NOT PREPARED TO

COVER COUNTRY'S RETIREMENT.

PEOPLE LIKE TAMARA ROE ARE

PREPARING.

MAXING OUT MY RETIREMENT

ACCOUNTS.

I HAVE A ROTH IRA.

REPORTER: ROSE STARTED

PUTTING AWAY FOR HER GOLDEN

YEARS WHILE IN 20S.

I STARTED AT 25.

I HAVE ALWAYS HUNG AROUND PEOPLE

OLDER THAN I.

BACK WHEN I WAS 25, IF YOU RED

THE BUSINESS SECTION OF THE

NEWSPAPER, PEOPLE WEREN'T SAVING

UP FOR RETIREMENT.

I HEAR IT IS WORSE

REPORTER: WORSE BUT NOT TOO

LATE.

IT IS A CRISIS THAT COULD BE

SOLVED IF PEOPLE WOULD REALIZE

THEIR FUTURE PLIGHT TODAY AND DO

SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

REPORTER: FOR THE DUMARS THAT

IS CLEAR.

WE HAVE TO TRUST AND RELY ON

OURSELVES.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

COUNTING TOO MUCH ON THE

GOVERNMENT TO SAVE THE DAY.

GOVERNMENT IS VERY SHORT TERM

ORIENTED.

ALL THE POLITICIANS ARE

CONCERNED ABOUT THE NEXT

ELECTI

ELECTION.

THEY ARE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT OUR

KIDS OR GRANDCHILDREN OR THE

FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY.

REPORTER: CHARLENE ISRAEL,

CBN NEWS.

PAT: THANKS, CHARLENE.

IT IS A CRISIS, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

COULDN'T MAKE THE ALARM CLEARER.

AVERAGE PERSON SAVED 30-$40,000

FOR RETIREMENT.

YOU COULD EAT THAT UP IN A YEAR.

IT IS NOT GOING TO EARN ANYTHING

TODAY IF THE INTEREST RATES ARE

2%, 3%.

WHAT IS $40,000 EARNED?

NOTHING.

NOTHING?

WHAT DOES $100,000 EARN?

NOTHING.

PEOPLE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SET UP.

TALKING TO WENDY DURING THE

BREAK.

HER FATHER SAID YOU NEED

500,000.

I THINK IN TODAY'S INTEREST YOU

NEED MORE THEN THAT.

MOST PEOPLE DON'T HAVE IT.

THERE IS STILL WAYS TO GET

MONEY.

I TELL YOU AS FAR AS THE

GOVERNMENT IS CONCERNED THEY

HAVE TO FACE THE REALITY OF THE

DEMOGRAPHICS AND THERE HAS TO BE

A MOVE TO MOVE THE RETIREMENT

AGE UP TO 76, 78, SOMETHING LIKE

THAT.

SAME THING WITH THE MEDICARE

BENEFITS.

THEY HAVE GOT TO MAKE THEM AGE

SENSITIVE TO THE TRUTH OF WHAT

IS HAPPENING.

FASTEST GROWING DEMOGRAPHICS

PEOPLE OVER 80.

THIS IS THE WAY IT IS IN OUR

COUNTRY.

IT IS A GOOD THING PEOPLE ARE

HEALTHY BUT AS FAR AS

RETIREMENT, TO SAY THEY HAVE TO

RETIRE AT 65, THEY ARE ALREADY

HEALTHY FOR 15 MORE YEARS MAKES

NO SENSE.

POLITICIANS HAVE TO GET WITH THE

PROGRAM AND SO-CALLED SENIORS

SAY IT IS MY MONEY, I WANT IT.

TOUGH LUCK.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS

YOU HAVE TO RECOGNIZE IF YOU ARE

GOING TO LIVE LONGER, YOU ARE

GOING TO BE HEALTHIER, STAY ON

THE JOB.

I THINK, WENDY, I CAN'T THINK OF

ANYTHING MORE HORRIBLE THAN

PLAYING GOLF EVERYDAY AND

SITTING IN A ROCKING CHAIR, HOW

AWFUL?

WENDY: I KNOW MY DAD JUST

RETIRED, DOING A LOT OF GOLFING,

FISHING, READING AND LOVING IT

RIGHT NOW.

AFTER A WHILE, YOU CAN'T PLAY

GOLF EVERYDAY.

PAT: THE WAY I PLAY GOLF,

THAT WOULD ASSURE MY DEMISE VERY

QUICKLY.

[LAUGHTER].

ANYHOW, WE HAVE SOMETHING TO

MAKE YOUR CURRENT LIFE OR YOUR

RETIREMENT YEARS HAPPY, HAPPY!

WENDY: COMING UP, JOHN

MCLEMORE IS GOING TO SMOKE UP A

SUMMER FEAST.

FIRST IT IS A NEW WEEK WE HAVE A

NEW ROUND OF BRING IT ON.

LEE SAYS I BELIEVE BAD PEOPLE GO

TO HELL.

MY FRIENDS BELIEVE NO ONE GOES

TO HELL.

WHO IS RIGHT?

WE ARE GOING TO TACKLE THAT

QUESTION AND MUCH MORE RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

WENDY: WELCOME BACK, WE ARE

HERE WITH BRING IT ON.

LEE SAYS I BELIEVE BAD PEOPLE GO

TO HELL.

MY FRIENDS BELIEVE NO ONE GOES

TO HELL, WHO IS CORRECT?

PAT: WHAT IS HELL?

THINK ABOUT THAT.

MANY CONCEPTS OF HELL OVER THE

YEARS.

I THINK THE BIGGEST, BEST VIEW

OF HELL IS ETERNAL SEPARATION

FROM GOD.

JESUS TALKED ABOUT GAHENA, A

CITY DUMP WHERE THINGS KEPT

BURNING, FIRES QUENCHED AND WARM

DOESN'T DIE.

ALSO TALKED ABOUT OUTER

DARKNESS.

CAN YOU IMAGINE DOING A SPACE

FLIGHT AND TETHER CUT AND OUT IN

SPACE, OUTER DARKNESS.

YOU HAD TO KEEP ON LIVING AND

OUT THERE ALL BY YOURSELF?

THAT IS WHAT HELL IS GOING TO BE

LIKE.

IT ISN'T A QUESTION ABOUT

SOMEBODY GOES THERE.

IT IS ALREADY THERE.

THE PEOPLE WHO SAY TO GOD, I

WANT YOUR WAY, I WANT TO ACCEPT

YOU, I WANT YOU TO DO WHAT YOU

WANT ME TO DO.

LET ME BE PART OF YOUR KINGDOM.

THOSE PEOPLE RECEIVE MERCY FROM

THE LORD.

OTHERS SAY GOD, I DON'T WANT

YOU, I DON'T WANT YOUR LAW.

I DON'T WANT TO BE UNDER YOUR

DOMINION OR PART OF YOUR

KINGDOM.

GOD WILL SAY OKAY.

YOU ASK FOR IT.

I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU WHAT YOU

ASK FOR, OUTER DARKNESS.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

HELL IS REAL.

HEAVEN IS REAL.

GOD IS REAL.

HIS LAW IS REAL SO IF YOUR

FRIENDS SAY THERE IS NO HELL IT

IS GOING TO BE A RUDE AWAKENING

WHEN THEY WAKE UP AND FIND OUT

THEY ARE IN TORMENT.

THERE IS ENOUGH IN THE BIBLE

ABOUT THE RICH MAN AND

LAZARETHS.

THE ANGELS CAME AND CARRIED THE

POOR MAN INTO ABRAHAM'S BOSOM.

I AM TORMENTED IN THIS FLAME.

I WANT SOMEBODY TO PUT THEIR

FINGER, GIVE ME A DROP OF WATER,

I AM TORMENTED.

JESUS WHO IS THE AUTHOR OF LOVE

HAD TO SAY.

WENDY: PRIDE SAYS HOW LONG

DOES A PERSON HAVE TO RECEIVE

THE GIFTS OF HEALING CASTING OUT

DEMONIC SPIRITS AND VISIONS IN

DREAMS.

PAT: PRIDE, IT CAN HAPPEN

INSTANTANEOUSLY.

WHEN YOU CENTER ON GOD AND TURN

YOUR LIFE OVER TO HIM, FOLLOWS

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I CAN'T GO INTO ALL THE DETAILS

OF WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

LET ME RECOMMEND, TAKE A BIBLE,

GO OFF SOME PLACE, LIKE FRUIT

JUICE OR SOMETHING, THIS IS

FINE.

JUST GO OFF AND FAST AND PRAY

AND CRY OUT TO THE LORD AND

SURRENDER AND SEE IF IN YOUR

LIFE THERE IS SOME WICKEDNESS,

ASK GOD TO REVEAL, SEARCH ME,

TRY ME, KNOW MY HEART.

I WANT YOU, I WANT TO BE

EVERYTHING YOU WANT ME TO BE,

FILL ME WITH YOURSELF.

THEN BEGIN TO THANK HIM AND YOU

WATCH WHAT HE'LL DO.

IT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU ARE

SINCERE, THEY WILL SEEK ME AND

FIND ME THE BIBLE, SAYS WHEN

THEY SEEK FOR ME WITH ALL THEIR

HEART.

AND IT IS NOT PLAY TIME, IT IS

REAL.

YOU WANT SOMETHING REAL THAT IS

HOW YOU GET IT.

WENDY: EBONY WRITES, WILL GOT

HEAL ME FROM NON-CONSENT SHL

HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION WILL GOD

HEAL ME.

SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING THAT WOULD

HAVE HAPPENED HUNDRED YEARS AGO

DURING THE WAR.

PAT: NON-CONSENT SHL, YOU ARE

A CHILD OR YOUNGER AND SOMEONE

IS DOING STUFF SEXUALLY TO YOU

THAT IS WEIRD.

WHETHER IT IS SAY -- WILL THE

LORD DELIVER YOU, IF YOU ARE THE

VICTIM, OF COURSE HE WILL.

HE'LL HEAL YOU.

YOU YOURSELF HAVE TO GET OUT OF

THE SITUATION WHATEVER IT IS.

YOU CAN'T STAY IN BONDAGE.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU ARE IN

SLAVERY, IT IS APPALLING TO ME.

I GET SO ANGRY WHEN HI THINK OF

THESE WHITE SLAVERS, THESE

PEOPLE KEEPING WOMEN IN BONDAGE,

TRAFFICKING IN WOMEN LIKE THEY

ARE A COMMODITY.

THEY ARE ENSLAVING THEM ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

TALKING ABOUT SEVERAL MILLION

PEOPLE.

WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT A FEW.

THOSE PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU ARE TALKING

ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

THE LORD WILL SET YOU FREE!

IF YOU ASK HIM, HE WILL.

HE WILL FORGIVE YOU IF YOU THINK

SOMETHING HAS BEEN DONE TO YOU,

HE WILL FORGIVE YOU.

IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

ALL RIGHT.

WENDY: PAULA FROM SOUTH

AFRICA, WE WERE TOLD OUR

SISTER-IN-LAW CAN'T STAND ANY OF

US.

HARD TO HEAR BECAUSE WE LOVE HER

SO MUCH.

DO WE ACT LIKE SHE DIDN'T KNOW

OR LEAVE HER ALONE.

I AM PRAYING FOR HER.

SO HARD TO PREP PRETEND

EVERYTHING IS OKAY.

PAT: MIGHT GO TO HER, SEVERAL

OF YOU, LISTEN, WE LOVE YOU A

LOT, WE ARE GLAD YOU ARE PART OF

THE FAMILY, WE UNDERSTAND YOU

CAN'T STAND US.

IS IT SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO

MAKE YOU HAPPY AND SEE WHAT

HAPPENS?

IF SHE SAYS YES, I CAN'T STAND

YOU, OKAY, LET HER HAVE HER WAY

AND KISS HER GOOD-BYE AND GET ON

WITH YOUR LIFE.

WENDY: MIGHT BE SOME

MISUNDERSTANDING, THEY ARE

FAMILY.

PAT: SHE IS A SISTER-IN-LAW.

SHE HAS COME IN AND DOESN'T LIKE

WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND DOESN'T

LIKE THE WAY THEY BEHAVE.

IT IS A CULTURE CLASH.

I DON'T KNOW.

SOUTH AFRICA, I DON'T KNOW IF

THESE ARE AFRICANS, I DON'T KNOW

WHO IT IS.

NEVERTHELESS, THERE IS A CLASH

OF CULTURES.

GO TO THE PERSON.

GET A COUPLE OF YOU, WE LOVE

YOU.

WHAT IS THE DEAL?

IS IT SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO

MAKE YOU HAPPY?

IT IS TIME FOR COMFORT FOOD.

WENDY: YES.

PAT: I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING,

PAULA DEEN IS GETTING A ROUGH

DEAL.

I REALLY DO.

SHE HAS BEEN ON THIS PROGRAM,

HER FAMILY HAS BEEN ON THIS

PROGRAM.

SHE IS A SOUTHERN WOMAN.

SOUTHERNERS, TREMENDOUS RACIAL

PREJUDICE.

SHE HAS BEEN KICKED OFF THE FOOD

NETWORK.

IT IS A SHAME.

WENDY: IT IS A SHAME.

PAT: A LOT OF HER FRIENDS IN

THE SOUTH ARE RALLYING TO HER

DEFENSE.

I SAY THAT I THINK PAULA, YOU

ARE A WONDERFUL LADY, IF YOU USE

A FEW TERMS THAT PEOPLE DIDN'T

LIKE TO HEAR, I AM SURE YOU ARE

SORRY, YOU HAVE ASKED FOR,

FORGIVENESS.

GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE.

YOU HAVE A LOT TO CONTRIBUTE.

YOU ARE A FUN PERSON.

DON'T LET THIS DESTROY YOU.

WENDY?

WENDY: PUT AWAY HAMBURGERS

AND HOT DOGS, WE ARE GOING TO

SERVE A PLATE OF THE BEST

SUMMERTIME MEAL.

SMOKE MASTER JOHN MCLEMORE WILL

SHOW YOU HOW IT IS DONE.

NESEX, DRUGS AND ROCK 'N' ROLL.

IT MADE ME FEEL SIX FEET

TALL.

THE DRUMMER THAT HAD IT ALL

AND LOST IT.

IT WAS DESTROYING ME

PHYSICALLY.

NEXT.

WENDY: TUESDAY.

CODE BLUE, WE NEED THE CRASH

CART.

WENDY: NINE MINUTES WITHOUT A

PULSE AND WITHOUT BREATHING.

I WAS CALM, I WAS AWARE OF

THE FACT I JUST DIED.

WENDY: A MOTHER THAT SPENT

NINE MINUTES IN ETERNITY.

HE ALLOWED ME TO LOOK THROUGH

HIS EYES AND SEE THE TRUTH.

WENDY: TUESDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

PAT: DANGEROUS LIFE STYLE.

THEY CALLED HIM JOHNNY C. HE WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE THE NEXT GREAT

ROCK 'N' ROLL STAR.

THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN FOR JOHNNY

CALLICOT.

HIS LIFE STYLE TORE HIM APART.

WHEN HIS PARENTS DIVORCED HE

WAS CRUSHED.

JUST WHEN AN ADOLESCENT NEEDS

GUIDANCE FROM HIS FATHER HE WAS

NOT THERE.

JOHNNY LIVED WITH HIS MOTHER

AND RARELY SAW HIS FATHER.

MUSIC BROUGHT HIM COMFORT.

I STARTED PLAYING DRUMS WHEN

I WAS SIX.

I GOT MY FIRST TOY KIT AND

PLAYED A RADIO.

I PLAYED ALONG WITH IT.

I COULD PICK UP WHAT THE DRUMMER

WAS DOING.

IN HIS TEENS, JOHNNY STARTED

A GARAGE BAND.

SKILLS GREW AND BECAME A

PROFESSIONAL DRUMMER.

HIS SKILLS WERE INTOXICATING.

I WAS SEEKING ATTENTION

BECAUSE OF THE SITUATION WITH MY

FATHER.

THAT IS WHEN THE COCAINE CAME IN

THE PICTURE.

I LOVED IT.

I LOVED THE WAY IT MADE ME FEEL.

I FELT SIX FOOT TALL AND OPEN UP

CONVERSATIONS WITH EVERYBODY AND

ANYBODY, YOU KNOW.

AND JUST BE THE LIFE OF THE

PARTY.

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL HAD A DOWN

SIDE.

IT WAS DESTROYING ME

PHYSICALLY AND MY MIND.

I COULDN'T REMEMBER WHERE I WAS

ON THE SONG.

IS THAT THE FIRST CHORUS?

IS THIS THE END?

I WOULD BE MESSING UP, YOU KNOW.

INEVITABLY I WAS NO LONGER

NEEDED.

HE LOST HIS CAREER, WOMEN AND

FAME AND CROWDS ALL VANISHED.

VERY DISAPPOINTED IN MYSELF

BECAUSE I WORKED SO HARD TO GET

TO THAT POINT AND THROWING IT

ALL AWAY.

I HAD BECOME ADDICTED TO THE

ALCOHOL AND DRUG.

I COULDN'T STOP.

JOHNNY'S ADDICTIONS MADE

DAILY ROUTINE TASKS ADUL DIFFICULT.

I WENT FROM JOB TO JOB.

WOULD DO GOOD FOUR OR FIVE DAYS,

I WOULD GET DRUNK AND HIGH.

OFTEN CHECKED INTO

FAITH-BASED REHABS.

AT ONE CLINIC, HE DECIDED TO

GIVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST.

IT REALLY STARTED TO LIKE,

LOOK TO GOD ON A DAILY BASIS AND

ASKED HIM TO GIVE ME THE

STRENGTH TO LEAVE THIS PLACE AND

GO USE AGAIN.

ADDICTION WAS STRONG AND

ALWAYS ENDED UP BACK ON THE

STREET.

I WASN'T STAYING THERE LONG

ENOUGH TO LET GOD TO HIS WORK.

I HAVE GIVEN YOU EIGHT MONTHS,

GOD.

I AM DONE HERE.

I AM GOING TO TAKE THE WHEEL AND

DRIVE MYSELF INTO A HOLE.

WHEN MY FATHER WAS ON HIS DEATH

BED.

HE BATTLED CANCER TWO OR THREE

YEARS.

I REMEMBER RECEIVING A PHONE

CALL FROM MY UNCLE AND SAYING

THEY HAVE GIVEN YOUR FATHER TWO

HOURS TO LIVE.

MY ADDICTION AT THAT TIME WAS SO

SEVERE AND SO SELFISH AND SO ALL

ABOUT ME, I DIDN'T EVEN GO.

IT IS A REGRET -- YOU KNOW, THAT

I LIVE WITH BUT

I GAVE UP.

I GAVE UP ON EVER BEING CLEAN.

I GAVE UP ON EVER BEING THE MAN

GOD CREATED ME TO BE.

ONE NIGHT HIS BROTHER CALLED.

HE ASKED IF I WAS READY TO

GIVE GOD ANOTHER CHANCE.

IN MY HEART AND MIND NO WAY.

OUT OF MY MOUTH SAID THE WORD

YES.

HIS BROTHER HELPED HIM

CONTACT CIRCLE OF LOVE.

THIS PLACE HAD A CHAPPELL --

CHAPPELL AND BRAND NEW SET OF

DRUMS.

I WOULD PLAY INSTRUMENTS.

JOHNNY BEGAN WRITING WORSHIP

SONGS AND READING THE BIBLE.

I WEEPED ON A DAILY BASIS

THERE.

NOT WEEPING IN A SAD WAY BUT

WEEPING OF WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

MY LIFE AND SEEING WHAT HE IS

DOING IN OTHERS AROUND ME.

GOD REALLY FILLED ME UP THERE.

HE STAYED AT CIRCLE OF LOVE

FOR TWO YEARS.

BY THE TIME HE WAS RELEASED,

JOHNNY WAS FREE FROM HIS

ADDICTIONS.

IT WAS AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE.

IT WAS ROUGH AT TIMES.

GOD WAS STRONGER.

GOD YOU KNOW, GOD KNEW MY HEART

FOR MUSIC.

HE KNEW THAT WOULD KEEP ME

THERE. TODAY JOHNNY IS

MARRYED TO LISA.

HE HAS A RENEWED RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD AND NEW SENSE OF

PURPOSE.

HE IS THE ONE THAT IS

CHANGING ME AND MAKING ME A

BETTER PERSON.

WITHOUT HIM I CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

THAT IS IT.

HE UNDERSTANDS ME AND KNOWS ME.

HE ALWAYS FORGIVES ME.

HE ALWAYS GIVES ME ANOTHER

CHANCE TO MAKE IT RIGHT.

PAT: WHEN YOU GO BACK AND

READ ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF HUMAN

BEINGS, WE UNDERSTAND GOD TOLD

US TO HAVE DOMINION OVER

EVERYTHING, OVER THE FISH, THE

BIRDS, THE ANIMALS, THE PLANTS,

EVERYTHING.

YOU KNOW WHAT ADDICTION IS?

YOU KNOW WHAT COCAINE IS?

IT IS A PLANT, IT IS A COCOA

LEAF.

YOU KNOW WHAT MARIJUANA IS?

IT IS A PLANT, YOU KNOW WHAT

NICOTINE IS?

IT IS A TOBACCO PLANT.

YOU KNOW WHAT ALCOHOL, WHISKEY

IS?

IT IS THE FRUIT OF CORN OR

BARLEY OR HOPS.

SOME KIND OF GRAIN.

DO YOU THINK YOU OUGHT TO BE A

SLAVE TO VEGETABLES?

YOU KNOW.

WHO IS MY BOSS?

IT IS BROCCOLI?

THAT IS RIDICULOUS.

YOU ARE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF

GOD.

JOHNNY BECAUSE MADE IN THE IMAGE

OF GOD BUT LET PLANTS DOMINANT

HIS LIFE.

IT RUINS HIM.

THEY ARE CRUEL TASK MASTERS,

JESUS CHRIST SAID I HAVE COME

THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT

MORE ABUNDANTLY.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE SLAVERY?

OR WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE

FREEDOM AND ABUNDANT LIFE?

LORD WILL GIVE YOU ABUNDANT

LIFE.

YOU HAVE TO ASSERT YOURSELF AS A

CHILD OF GOD.

YOU ARE CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF

GOD.

YOU ARE DESTINED TO REIGN AND

RULE WITH HIM.

THAT IS YOUR DESTINY!

NOT SLAVERY, BUT REIGNING WITH

GOD.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE FREE?

LET'S CALL ON THE NAME OF THE

LORD RIGHT NOW I AM GOING TO

LEAD YOU IN PRAYER, BOW YOUR

HEAD, SAY THESE WORDS, JESUS,

SAY IT, JESUS I WANT TO BE FREE,

LORD.

I ASSERT MY DOMINION IN YOUR

NAME AND I TAKE AUTHORITY OVER

THOSE THINGS WHICH WOULD DESTROY

MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD, I ASK YOU TO

COME INTO MY HEART, FILL ME WITH

YOURSELF, FORGIVE ME FOR WHAT I

HAVE DONE AND LIVE YOUR LIFE IN

ME.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

AND AMEN.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING, WE

JUST A FEW SECONDS LEFT, THIS

PACKET, TELL YOU WHAT TO DO

NEXT, CALL, TELL ME YOU PRAYED,

SOMEBODY IS HERE TO HELP YOU.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE FOR

THIS PROGRAM. TOMORROW ONE WOMAN

ACCOUNTS HER AMAZING JOURNEY TO

HEAVEN AND BACK, PSALM, FOR YOU

LORD, ARE GOOD AND REDSKINS --

READY TO FORGIVE TO ALL WHO CALL

UPON YOU.
