During a minor surgery Crystal took a nine minute journey into heaven which restored her faith in God. Plus, see how Barbara's Hurricane Sandy tragedy turns into the surprise of a lifetime. Read Transcript


CODE BLUE, WE NEED THE

CRASH CART IN HERE.

NINE MINUTES WITHOUT A

PULSE.

AND NINE MINUTES WITHOUT

BREATHING.

AND I WAS VERY AWARE OF

THE FACT THAT I HAD JUST

DIED.

A MOTHER WHO SPENT NINE

MINUTES IN ETERNITY.

HE HAD ALLOWED ME TO LOOK

THROUGH HIS EYES AND SEE THE

TRUTH.

AND CAME BACK TO SHARE

HER STORY.

HE SAID, TELL THEM WHAT

YOU CAN R & R.

CAN REMEMBER.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

WENDY, YOU HAVEN'T BEEN TO

HEAVEN YET, HAVE YOU?

Wendy: NO, BUT I HEAR

IT IS A GREAT PLACE.

I DO WANT TO GO THERE SOME

DAY.

Pat: I'M NOT BOOKING MY

TICKET YET, BUT WE HAVE A

LADY WHO WENT THERE.

IT'S GOING TO BE

INTERESTING.

SHE HAS A BEST-SELLING BOOK

AND TALKS ABOUT WHAT HEAVEN

IS LIKE.

WE'LL GET THROUGH THE

NEWS -- THAT ISN'T HEAVEN.

WHAT THE SENATE DOES, THE

HOUSE DOES, THE PRESIDENT

DOES, THAT'S NOT HEAVEN.

WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT

HEAVEN, BUT FIRST I HAVE THE

NEWS.

AND THE SENATE IS GETTING

CLOSE TO PASSING A MAJOR

IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL.

BUT WILL THE HOUSE

REPUBLICANS GO ALONG WITH

IT?

Wendy: MANY REPUBLICANS

SUPPORT THE MEASURE, BUT

OTHER CONSERVATIVES WONDER

IF IT WILL HELP OR HURT THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

JOHN WAGGI HAS OUR STORY.

Reporter: SOME IN THE

G.O.P. ARE SENDING OUT DIRE

WARNINGS THAT THE PARTY IS

THROUGH IN IT DOESN'T GET ON

THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE

IMMIGRATION BILL.

IF WE DON'T PASS

IMMIGRATION REFORM, IF WE

DON'T GET IT OFF THE TABLE

IN A REASONABLE, PRACTICAL

WAY, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO

YOU RUN IN 2016.

WE'RE IN A DEMOGRAPHIC DEATH

SPIRAL AS A PARTY.

THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GET BACK

IN GOOD GRACES WITH THE

HISPANIC COMMUNITY IN MY

RUIS TO PASS I IMMIGRATION

REFORM.

Reporter: BUT MANY ARE

CONCERNED THAT LAWMAKERS ARE

PUSHING CONGRESS TO PASS THE

IMMIGRATION BILL IN THE SAME

WAY THAT THEY PUSHED TO PASS

OBAMACARE, WITHOUT EVEN

KNOWING HOW IT WILL AFFECT

THE COUNTRY.

I REJECT THE IDEA THAT

THIS POLICY REFORM OF FIXING

OUR BROKEN IMMIGRATION

SYSTEM SHOULD BE DONE FOR

POLITICAL OR ELECTORAL

REASONS.

I THINK THAT IS THE WRONG

REASON.

AND I THINK IT COULD LEAD TO

A BAD RESULT.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU SAY WE HAVE

TO DO THIS FOR POLITICAL

REASONS, YOU MAY END UP

SWALLOWING A BAD POLICY OUT

OF A MISPLACED DESPERATION.

Reporter: KENTUCKY

SENATOR RAND PAUL SAYS HE

WON'T SUPPORT THE BILL AFTER

HIS AMENDMENT TO ENFORCE

BORDER SECURITY FIRST

FAILED.

BUT HE IS URGING REPUBLICANS

TO APPEAL TO AMERICANS OF

ALL RACES AND AGES.

WE NEED TO HAVE THIS

OPTIMISM, THIS HAPPINESS

ABOUT OUR PARTY, THAT IS

ENTICING TO PEOPLE, AND

NEEDS TO APPEAL TO PEOPLE OF

ALL RACES.

WHEN WE LOOK LIKE AMERICA,

WHEN WE HAVE TATTOOS, WITH

TATTOOS, WITHOUT TATTOOS,

WITH PONY TAILS, WITHOUT

PONY TAILS.

Reporter: CHUCK SHUME

SCHUMER'S IMMIGRATION PUSH

HAS BEEN A BRILLIANT

STRATEGY, PUSHING BENGHAZI

ASIDE.

THIS IS GOING TO BE AN

HISTORIC WEEK FOR THE SENATE

AS WE PASS COMPREHENSIVE

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

OUR MOMENTUM IS GROWING.

I BELIEVE WE'LL BE IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD OF 70 VOTES BY

THE TIME THE VOTE OCCURS AT

THE END OF THE WEEK.

Reporter: SCHUMER

CAUTIONED HE COULD SEE A

MILLION DEMONSTRATORS

MEETING ON THE MALL IF THE

HOUSE DEMOCRATS TRY TO

SUBSTANTIALLY CHANGE THE

VERSION OF THE BILL.

BUT SENATOR PAUL DOESN'T

SEEM TO BE BE INTIMIDATED.

IT WILL PASS THE SENATE,

BUT IT DEAD ON ARRIVAL AT

THE HOUSE.

I THINK THEY THINK BORDER

SECURITY HAS TO COME FIRST

BEFORE YOU GET IMMIGRATION

REFORM.

Reporter: JOHN WAGGI,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU'VE BEEN TO

AFRICA?

Wendy: I HAVE.

Pat: WHERE DID YOU GO?

Wendy: I WAS IN SOUTH

AFRICA, IN CAPE TOWN.

Pat: HOW MUCH DID YOUR

TRIP COST?

Wendy: OH, BOY, I PUT

IT ON MY CREDIT CARD.

IT WAS THOUSANDS.

Pat: HOW ABOUT

100 MILLION?

Wendy: WHAT?

Pat: THAT'S WHAT THE

PRESIDENT'S TRIP TO AFRICA

IS GOING TO COST,

$100 MILLION.

Wendy: WOW!

Pat: THEY'RE GOING TO

HAVE A DESTROYER OFF THE

COAST TO PROTECT HIM.

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE

AIRPLANES FLYING OVERHEAD 24

HOURS A DAY.

HE IS GOING TO HAVE SO MANY

LIMOUSINES, BULLET-PROOF

CARS.

$100MILLION.

YOU WOULDN'T SPEND IT ON A

TRIP?

Wendy: I WOULD NOT

SPEND IT ON A TRIP.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: I DON'T HAVE IT TO

SPEND, BUT I SURE WOULDN'T

BLOW IT ON A TRIP.

I DID GO TO AFRICA AS A

GUEST OF SOME PEOPLE.

I WENT TO CRUGAR FOREST,

MALA MALA GAME RESERVE.

IT WAS LOVELY.

Wendy: DID YOU SEE THE

BIG FIVE?

Pat: OF COURSE.

DID I SEE ANY LEOPARDS?

THEY GAVE ME A LEOPARD CUB,

UNTIL HE GOT BIGGER, AND I

WENT TO SEE HIM IN A ZOO,

AND HE CAME BOUNDING TOWARDS

ME --

Wendy: I HAVE A

GIRLFRIEND WHO IS SOUTH

AFRICAN, AND SO WE JUST

DROVE HER LITTLE CAR THROUGH

THERE.

SHE GETS OUT, LOOKING

AROUND, AND I'M, LIKE,

PLEASE GET BACK IN THE CAR.

THEY ARE NOT AFRAID OF

THEM.

Pat: I WAS AFRAID.

WE WERE NEXT TO AN ELEPHANT,

AND HE GOT MAD, SIX TONS,

AND HIS EARS WERE FLAPPING

AND HE WAS TRUMPETING, AND

I'M SAYING TO HIM, I HEAR

YOU.

I HEAR YOU.

LIKE, PLEASE DON'T HURT ME.

ANYHOW, THE PRESIDENT HAS

GIVEN UP GOING ON SAFARI AS

AN ECONOMY MEASURE.

SO IT WILL ONLY COST $

$998 MILLION --

Wendy: IT'S A LOT OF

MONEY FOR A TRIP.

Pat: ANYHOW, THEY CAN'T

OPEN THE WHITE HOUSE TO

VISITORS -- THAT IS $12,000

A WEEK, THEY CAN'T AFFORD

THAT, BUT THEY CAN AFFORD

$100 MILLION.

THE PRESIDENT IS GIVING A

MAJOR SPEECH TODAY, AND IT

COULD HAVE SERIOUS

IMPLICATIONS FOR THE ENERGY

INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED

STATES.

IT IS ANTI-COAL.

ANTI-COAL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: PAT, THE

PRESIDENT IS PUTTING OUT HIS

PLAN TO FIGHT CLIMATE

CHANGE, AND HE PLANS TO

BYPASS CONGRESS TO PUT MUCH

OF IT INTO EFFECT.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO PUT

LIMITS ON CARBON DIOXIDE

LIMITS NOT ONLY ON NEW POWER

PLANTS, BUT ONES THAT ARE

ALREADY IN OPERATION.

THAT INCLUDES POWER PLANTS

THAT USE COAL.

SOME ANALYSTS SAY THAT PLAN

COULD FORCE MANY OF THOSE

POWER PLANTS TO POWER DOWN

AND CLOSE ALL TOGETHER AND

HURT THE COAL INDUSTRY.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS MORE

CLEAN ENERGY, AND INCREASED

EFFICIENCY FOR APPLIANCES

LIKE REFRIGERATORS AND

LAMPS.

NOW, PAT, THE QUESTION MANY

POLÍTICOS ARE ASKING IS WHY

NOW?

Pat: WHY NOW IS TO

DEVERT ATTENTION FROM

BENGHAZI AND ALL OF THE

OTHER STUFF GOING ON.

HE SAYS HE'LL SWITCH TO

CLIMATE CHANGE AND MAYBE

HE'LL RALLY THE GREENS TO

COME OUT AND DEMONSTRATE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY

DON'T TAKE THE SIMPLEST

ROUTE, AND THAT'S NATURAL

GAS.

WE HAVE SO MUCH OF THIS

STUFF WE DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO WITH IT ALL.

OUR -- WE'RE OVERCAPACITY,

AND OUR TERMINALS ARE JAMMED

WITH NATURAL GAS, AND WE

HAVE MUCH MORE COMING OUT.

IT IS A CLEAN-BURNING FUEL.

AND ALL WE'VE GOT TO DO IS A

LITTLE BIT OF A GOVERNMENT

PROGRAM, AND START SWITCHING

TRUCKS OVER TO NATURAL GAS,

SWITCHING AUTOMOBILES TO

NATURAL GAS.

AND IT'S EASY TO DO.

AND WE HAVE IT.

WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO IMPORT

OF NATURAL GAS.

AND IT'S CLEAN FUEL.

IT DOESN'T POLLUTE THE

ENVIRONMENT.

SO WHY DOESN'T HE COME TO

THIS?

WELL, HE IS AGAINST FOSSEL

FUEL, SO HE WANTS TO DO

SOLENDRA.

AND HE WANTS TO DO SOLAR AND

BIOMASS.

NONE OF THOSE THINGS WORK.

Reporter: SUICIDE

BOMBERS ATTACKED THE

PRESIDENTIAL PALACE IN

AFGHANISTAN.

IT COULD CREATE PROBLEMS FOR

ATTEMPTS TO START PEACE

TALKS TO END THE WAR THERE.

AUTHORITIES SAY THE

ATTACKERS OPENED FIRE ON

SECURITY FORCES AFTER TRYING

TO USE FAKE DOCUMENTS TO GET

THROUGH A CHECK-POINT.

ALL FOUR GUNMEN WERE

KILLED.

SHORTLY AFTER A CAR BOMB

EXPLODED AS IT TRIED TO

ENTER INTO THE SAME AREA.

THE TALIBAN CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE

ATTACK.

IT CAME AS REPORTERS WERE

GATHERING FOR A NEWS EVENT

WITH AFGHAN PRESIDENT CAR

KARZAI.

CONSERVATIVES GROUPS HAD

COMPLAINED THAT THE I.R.S.

WAS HOLDING UP THEIR

APPLICATIONS, AND ONE SURVEY

BY A NEWS SERVICE FOUND THAT

NO LIBERAL GROUPS THAT

COMPLAINED.

THE I.R.S. SAID THAT THE

SCREENINGS HAD STOPPED IN

MAY OF LAST YEAR, BUT NOW IT

SAYS THE SCREENINGS LASTED

UNTIL EARLIER THIS MONTH.

CONGRESS IS INVESTIGATING

REPORTS THAT THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT, SPECIFICALLY THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY, IS STOCKPILING

AMMUNITION.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter:

THE

GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY

OFFICE IS POURING OVER

RECORDS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF

HOMELAND SECURITY.

THEY WANT TO KNOW HOW THE

DEPARTMENT PURCHASES, KEEPS

TRACK OF, AND STORES

AMMUNITION.

IT IS ENTIRELY INEXPLIS

INEXPLISABLE WHY THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND NEEDS

SO MUCH AMMUNITION.

Reporter: REPORTS

SURFACED THAT D.H. S.WAS

OBTAINING BILLIONS OF ROUNDS

OF BULLETS.

THAT HAS RETAILERS, FROM

MAJOR CHAINS TO SMALL MOM

AND POP GUN STORES, STRUGGLE

TO PUT AMMUNITION ON THEIR

SHELVES.

LAST YEAR THE U.S. ARMY BUT

347 ROUNDS OF AMMO FOR EACH

SOLDIER.

HOW MANY TIMES DID

HOMELAND SECURITY LAST YEAR

HAVE TO ACTUALLY SHOOT AND

FIRE A WEAPON.

I SAID 15 SHOOTINGS

INCIDENTS LAST YEAR.

LESS THAN 100 ROUNDS?

LESS THAN 100 ROUNDS,

YES, SIR.

Reporter: HOMELAND

SECURITY OFFICIALS SAY THEY

HAVE NO IDEA WHERE REPORTS

OF CONTRACTS FOR BILLIONS OF

BULLETS CAME FROM.

YOU DON'T HAVE A PURCHASE

ORDER OPEN TO BE ABLE TO

PURCHASE UP TO A BILLION

ROUNDS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

YEARS?

THERE ARE SEVERAL

CONTRACTS FOR AMMUNITION.

I'M JUST LOOKING FOR A

NUMBER.

Reporter: HE EVENTUALLY

CONCLUDED HIS AGENCY HAS

750 MILLION ROUNDS FOR

70,000 PISTOL-CARRYING

AGENTS.

THAT INCLUDES NEARLY TWO

YEARS OF AMMUNITION IN

STORAGE, IN CASE OFFICIALS

SAY THEY EVER HAVE PROBLEMS

ORDERING WHAT THEY NEED.

OHIO CONGRESSMAN JIM JORDAN

SAYS WHAT HOMELAND SECURITY

HAS IS A CREDIBILITY

PROBLEM.

YOU GUYS ARE AWARE OF

WHAT TOOK PLACE AT I.C.E.,

WHERE SIX YEARS AGO, 647

CRIMINALS WERE RELEASED.

THE AMERICAN PUBLIC SEES

THAT.

Reporter: SOME

AMERICANS WERE UNEASY WHEN

PICTURES OF ARMORED VEHICLES

STARTED SURFACING ON U.S.

SOIL.

THEY ARE USED ON THE BATTLE

FIELD.

I'M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT

IT.

WHY DO YOU NEED ALL OF THIS

PROTECTION.

ARE YOU ABOUT TO FORCE

SOMETHING ON THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE YOU KNOW THEY'RE

GOING TO GET UPSET ABOUT.

Reporter: HOMELAND

OFFICIALS SAY THE DEPARTMENT

HAS 30 AMRAPS, AND AGENTS

ARE USING THEM.

WE USE THEM FOR OFFICER

RESCUE.

IN FACT, ONE LAST YEAR WAS

EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY

BENEFICIAL FOR US IN A

SITUATION WHERE IT PROTECTED

OUR OFFICERS FROM GUNFIRE.

Reporter: SOME

DEMOCRATS CALL CONCERNS OVER

THE STOCKPILING OF WEAPONS

AND PRESENCE OF MILITARY

VEHICLES CONSPIRACY

THEORIES, BUT THEY'RE ENOUGH

TO MAKE CONGRESS ACT.

THE AUDIT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY WILL TAKE SEVERAL

MONTHS TO COMPLETE.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PAT, WHAT ARE

YOUR THOUGHTS, CONSPIRACY

THEORY OR GENUINE THOUGHTS

FOR CONCERN?

Pat: I THINK DEMOCRATIC

SCREW-UP IS CLOSER TO THIS.

THIS WAS A GEORGE BUSH

MONSTROSITY.

WHEN HE WAS PRESIDENT, HE

THOUGHT THE CLEVER WAY TO DO

IS TAKE ALL OF THESE

AGENCIES AND MASH THEM

TOGETHER.

INDIVIDUAL AGENCIES, LIKE

FEMA AND OTHERS, HE IS GOING

TO SWISH THEM ALL TOGETHER

INTO THIS GIANT THING CALLED

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY.

THEY STILL HAVEN'T WORKED IT

OUT, AND IT IS A

BUREAUCRATIC NIGHTMARE.

I WAS SO INVOLVED IN

KATRINA, THE ACTIVITY DOWN

THERE, AND WHEN I SAW WHAT

FEMA WAS DOING, AND HOW IT

WAS NOT DELIVERING THE GOODS

THAT WERE NEEDED.

AND THERE WERE THESE HUGE

LOTS OF TRAITOR TRAILERS

THAT WEREN'T BEING USED --

IT WAS A NIGHTMARE.

AND THE REASON IS -- WHAT

DID THEY HAVE?

THEY HAD A MAN WHO WAS THE

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE

ARAB HORSE ASSOCIATION IN

CHARGE OF FEMA.

HE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT.

BUT ALL UP AND DOWN THE

LINE, THEY DON'T HAVE THE

RIGHT MIX OF PEOPLE.

IT IS A BUREAUCRATIC

MONSTROSITY THEY SHOULD

NEVER HAVE BEEN PUT

TOGETHER.

I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY TEACH

AT HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL,

THES WATHIS WAS WRONG.

WE'RE BEGINNING TO SEE THE

PRICE.

THEY'RE STOCKPILING HUNDREDS

OF THOUSANDS ROUNDS OF

AMMUNITION.

THEY HAVE ARMORED VEHICLES

TRAVELLING THE ROADS OF

AMERICA.

WHOEVER HEARD OF SUCH

NONSENSE?

JOHN?

Reporter: FLORIDA

UNIVERSITY HAS REINSTATED

THE INSTRUCTORS WHO HAD

STUDENTS STOMP ON A PIECE OF

PAPER WITH THE NAME JESUS

WRITTEN ON IT.

HE SAYS IT WAS PART OF A

LESSON, BUT WHEN WORD GOT

OUT UNIVERSITY OFFICIALS

INVESTIGATED.

THE INSTRUCTOR SAYS THE

POINT OF THE LESSON WAS TO

SHOW THE POWER OF WORDS, NOT

TO DENIGRATE CHRISTIANITY.

BUT SOME CONSERVATIVES SAY

THE EXERCISE NEVER WOULD

HAVE BEEN DONE USING A NAME

LIKE MOHAMMED.

HE WILL NOW ONLY TEACH

ONLINE BECAUSE OF SECURITY

CONCERNS.

NIK WALLENDA SAYS HE WANTS

TO TAKE HIS NEXT WALK IN NEW

YORK, BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND

NEW YORK POLICE BUILDINGS.

THE POLICE COMMISSIONER SAYS

HE WOULD SAY NO TO THAT

IDEA, SAYING IT IS TOO

DANGEROUS AND COULD BE

HAZARDOUS TO THOSE ON THE

GROUND IN CASE HE FALLS.

HE WALKS ON THE GRAND CANYON

DREW A HUGE TELEVISION

AUDIENCE, REACHING

$13 MILLION VIEWERS AT ITS

PEAK.

HE WALKED FOR 22 MINUTES ON

A TWO-INCH CABLE 1500 FEET

HIGH.

A NEW STUDY IS CHALLENGING A

COMMON BELIEF ABOUT EATING

AND LOSING WEIGHT.

THE SURVEY FOUND EATING TWO

LARGE MEALS CAN HELP YOU

LOSE MORE THAN SIX SMALL

MEALS.

RESEARCHERS SAY PEOPLE WITH

TYPE 2 DIABETES WHO ATE ONLY

BREAKFAST AND LUNCH LOST AN

AVERAGE OF 1.23 POUNDS IN

BODY MASS INDEX, AND THOSE

WHO ATE SIX SMALL MEALS LOST

AN AVERAGE OF .82.

PAT, WHAT IS YOUR TAKE, SIX

OR TWO MEALS A DAY?

Pat: SIX, BABY.

SIX, BABY.

I DON'T AGREE WITH THOSE

EXPERTS.

EXPERTS ALWAYS COME UP WITH

SOMETHING THAT IS WRONG.

Wendy: IT SEEMS

UNAMERICAN.

YOU'RE USED TO THREE SQUARE

MEALS A DAY.

Pat: THEY SAY YOU'RE

SUPPOSED TO EAT BREAKFAST

LIKE A KING, LUNCH LIKE A

PRINCE, AND DINNER LIKE A

PAUPER.

THAT'S THE BEST WAY TO LOSE

WEIGHT.

BUT THE SIX MEALS A DAY

THING, I THINK IT HAS PRETTY

GOOD SCIENCE BACKING IT UP.

YOU KEEP THE FURNACE GOING

ALL DAY LONG.

WITH LITTLE MEALS, BUT

THEY'VE GOT TO BE BALANCED

PROPERLY.

YOU NEVER KNOW ABOUT THESE

TESTS.

THEY ALWAYS COME OUT WITH A

SCIENTIST WHO SAYS I'VE GOT

ANOTHER TEST.

AND WE REPORT IT HERE, AND

IT TURNS OUT TO BE WRONG.

Wendy: YOU FEEL BETTER

WHEN YOU'RE EATING SMALLER

MEALS.

BUT IT IS CERTAINLY NICE TO

ENJOY A FEAST NOW AND THEN.

Pat: YOU'RE SO THIN.

YOU DON'T ENJOY A FEAST.

I'M GETTING WHERE I DON'T

EAT MUCH OF ANYTHING.

Wendy: EGGS ARE THE

PERFECT FOOD.

THEY WILL TAKE YOU FOR

HOURS.

Pat: I HAD TWO

HARD-BOILED EGGS YESTERDAY.

THIS MORNING I WENT BACK TO

MY REGULAR BREAKFAST, WHICH

IS ALMONDS, WALNUTS, PECANS

--

Wendy: BLUEBERRIES.

Pat: RASPBERRIES --

Wendy: NO OATMEAL WITH

THAT?

Pat: OAT BRAN.

AND I PUT ORANGE JUICE ON

TOP OF IT.

Wendy: YOU PUT ORANGE

JUICE ON TOP OF IT?

YOU DON'T DRINK THE ORANGE

JUICE?

Pat: I DID THAT AT A

RESTAURANT ONE TIME, AND THE

GUY NEXT TO ME LOOKED AT ME

AS I POURED THE ORANGE JUICE

ON MY OATMEAL.

Wendy: I DON'T THINK

YOU'LL GET TOO MANY

FOLLOWERS ON THAT.

Pat: THE MILK IS TOO

FATTENING FOR ME.

Wendy: UP NEXT, WE'LL

TAKE YOU TO A PRO-CHOICE

STATE WITH A DIFFERENT

ANGLE.

WHAT I SAY IS I'M

PRO-BABY.

WE'VE OVER 189,000 WOMEN

GO THROUGH THE PROGRAM.

Wendy: SEE HOW

SOMETHING CALLED "REAL

ALTERNATIVE" IS SAVING LIVES

IN PENNSYLVANIA.

THEN JOIN US FOR A JOURNEY

YOU'LL NEVER FORGET.

A WOMAN DESCRIBES HER NINE

MINUTES IN HEAVEN.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: PRO-LIFE,

PRO-CHOICE, IT SEEMS THAT

THE PRO-CHOICE PEOPLE, AS

THEY'RE CALLED, PRO-CHOICE,

HAVE GAINED CONTROL OF THE

LEGISLATURES, AND TH THE AD

THE ADMINISTRATIVE POLICY.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS, THEY

HAVE A PLAN THAT IS

WORKING.

Reporter: 25 YEARS AGO,

TEENAGER MAUREEN FOUND

HERSELF PREGNANT AND AT ODDS

WITH ANGRY PARENTS.

THEY WERE TRYING TO FORCE

ME TO HAVE AN ABORTION, AND

I WASN'T GOING TO DO THAT.

Reporter: HER BOYFRIEND

DIDN'T WANT HER TO HAVE THE

BABY, EITHER.

MAUREEN RECEIVED NO SUPPORT,

UNTIL SHE CAME ACROSS THE

FOLKS AT GENESIS CENTER IN

PITTSBURGH.

THEY GAVE HER A TEMPORARY

PLACE TO LIVE, EDUCATION SO

SHE COULD SUPPORT HERSELF,

AND ENCOURAGEMENT SHE COULD

BE A GOOD MOTHER.

MY MOM SAID I WOULD END

UP TO BE NOTHING.

I WOULD END UP ON WELFARE.

Reporter: EVEN TODAY,

MAUREEN IS OVERWHELMED HOW

THESE TWO MOTHERS BAY THE

SURROGATE MOTHERS SHE

NEEDED.

WE ALL OF THE

ENCOURAGEMENT OF LOVE LOVE

OF THESE TWO LADIES.

Reporter: WITH

FINANCIAL SUPPORT, CENTERS

LIKE GENESIS CAN HELP

MILLIONS OF WOMEN, SUCH AS

MAUREEN, SAY NO TO

ABORTION.

IT IS NOT EASY WHEN

PRO-CHOICE PO POLITICIANS

AND ABORTION CLINICS JOIN

FORCES WITH THAT EFFORT.

SOME ARE TRYING TO SHUT DOWN

PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CENTERS.

NOT SO HERE IN PEN.

IN PENNSYLVANIA.

THE STATE USE TAXPAYER

DOLLARS TO HELP.

THE "REAL ALTERNATIVES" HAS

BEEN DIRECTING $5 MILLION TO

$6 MILLION A YEAR TO

PRO-LIFE CENTERS ACROSS THE

STATE.

IT HAS HELPED BRING

PENNSYLVANIA'S ABORTION RATE

DOWN SOME 7%.

THE SUCCESS HAS LED 14 OTHER

STATES TO ASK FOR HELP IN

SETTING UP SIMILAR

PROGRAMS.

WHAT I SAY IS I'M

PRO-BABY.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

BIGGEST BACKERS, GOVERNOR

TOM CORBETT.

WE'VE HAD OVER 189,000

WOMEN GO THROUGH THE

PROGRAM.

Reporter: CORBETT

BRINGS A PERSONAL CONNECTION

TO THIS FIGHT, BECAUSE A

PREGNANT WOMAN DECIDED ON

ADOPTION OVER ABORTION.

AND THAT IS NOW HIS

GRANDSON.

I THANK GOD EVERY DAY

THAT THAT YOUNG WOMEN

DECIDED TO KEEP THE BABY,

AND NOT HAVE THE BABY

ABORTED, AND DID SO BECAUSE

I'VE GOT THIS PRECIOUS

LITTLE FELLOW.

Reporter: THE "REAL

ALTERNATIVE" PROGRAM CAME TO

THE RESCUE OF JAMIE FAIR.

THIS UNEMPLOYED MOTHER

BECAME PREGNANT WITH HER

FOURTH CHILD JUST AS HER

HUSBAND LEFT HER.

EVEN DOCTORS RECOMMENDED SHE

ABORT.

I DID HAVE A MEDICAL

ISSUE THAT THEY FELT IT

WOULDN'T BE CONDUCIVE TO MY

LIFE IF I WOULD GO AHEAD

WITH THE PREGNANCY.

Reporter: SHORT OF

MONEY, JAMIE CAME TO TRI-

CITY LIFE CENTER, LOOKING

FOR A FREE CRIB, BUT ENDED

UP GETTING MUCH MORE.

COUNSELLORS THERE BECAME THE

ENCOURAGERS JAMIE AND HER

FAMILY NEEDED.

I COULDN'T AFFORD DIAPERS

AND I COULDN'T AFFORD FOOD.

THEY WOULD GET DIAPERS AND

THINGS THEY NEEDED, BUT MOST

IMPORTANT THEY WOULD GET THE

LOVE AND SUPPORT THEY

NEEDED.

WHEN A MOTHER DECIDES TO

CARRY A CHILD, WE'RE THERE

EVERY DAY, NOT ONLY THROUGH

HER PREGNANCY, BUT WE'RE

THERE FOR THE FIRST FIVE

YEARS OF THAT CHILD'S LIFE.

Reporter: THEY LOVE

THESE WOMEN AS IF THEY WERE

THEIR OWN DAUGHTER.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY

SAYS MOST ABORTIONS HAPPEN

BECAUSE WOMEN FEEL FORCED

INTO THEM DUE TO LACK OF

SUPPORT.

THERE WERE SURVEYS DONE

OF WOMEN WHO HAD AN

ABORTION, AND THEY SAID IF

ONE PERSON HAD HELPED THEM,

THEY WOULDN'T HAVE ABORTED.

Reporter: AFTER THEY

GET HELP, 87% OF WOMEN SAY

THEY WON'T ABORT, EVEN IF

THEY'RE PRESSURED BY

BOYFRIENDS, PARENTS, OR

OTHERS, AND THAT'S BECAUSE

SHE FEELS SHE HAS SOMEONE ON

HER SIDE.

THEREFORE SHE IS FREE TO

MAKE THE DECISION SHE WANTS

TO MAKE.

Reporter: 24-YEAR-OLD

JESSICA SHELDON IS PART OF A

GENERATION WHERE EVERY THIRD

PERSON HAS BEEN KILLED BY

ABORTION.

IT IS SCARY TO THINK OF

ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO COULD

HAVE BEEN HERE, BUT ARE

NOT.

Reporter: JESSICA

SHARES ADVICE TO PREGNANT

YOUNG WOMEN, LABORING ABOUT

GIVING THEIR CHILD LIFE.

IT WILL BE REALLY SCARY,

AND YOU'LL PROBABLY BE IN

SHOCK FOR A WHILE, BUT IF

YOU PULL THROUGH WITH IT, IT

WILL BE THE BEST THING

EVER.

Reporter: JESSICA

DOESN'T SAY THIS BECAUSE SHE

IS PREGNANT, BUT BECAUSE HER

MOTHER IS MAUREEN, WHO

FOUGHT HER FAMILY AND

BOYFRIEND TO KEEP HER BABY.

SOME SAY THEY'RE PRO-CHOICE

BECAUSE THEY BACK THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY.

BUT HERE IN PENNSYLVANIA,

THEY SAY THEY'RE PRO-CHOICE

BECAUSE THEY'RE OFFERING

WOMEN REAL ALTERNATIVES.

PAUL STRAND, REPORTING FROM

PENNSYLVANIA.

Pat: THANKS, PAUL.

GOD BLESS GOVERNOR CORBETT.

PENNSYLVANIA IS A GREAT

STATE.

WE HAVE SO MANY FANS, ALL

THE WAY ACROSS THE STATE,

FROM THE DELAWARE VALLEY AND

PHILADELPHIA AND ALL THE WAY

TO PITTSBURGH.

THEY REALLY LOVE THE LORD.

Wendy: IT IS NICE TO

SEE SUCH A STRONG PRO-LIFE

GOVERNOR, AND TO HAVE THAT

TAXPAYER MONEY GOING TO SAVE

LIVES --

Pat: IT'S A MARVELOUS

STATE AND GOD WILL BLESS

IT.

WE HAVE 55 MILLION BABIES

THAT HAVE BEEN ABORTED IN

THIS COUNTRY SINCE RO ROE

VS. WADE.

55MILLION.

THAT IS A HOLOCAUST.

YOU FIGURE HITLER, AT THE

HEIGHT OF HIS MONSTROUS

EVIL, KILLED SIX MILLION

PEOPLE.

AND WE HAVE, IN THIS LAND OF

THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE

BRAVE, WE HAVE KILLED

55 MILLION.

WARMEST AND

Wendy: AND WE'RE DOING

IT LEGALLY.

Pat: EXACTLY.

THE SUPREME COURT SAYS

YOU'VE GOT A RIGHT TO

CONSTITUTIONALLY.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY A

PRICE ONE OF THESE DAYS FOR

WHAT WE'RE DOING.

LET'S HOPE THAT GOVERNORS

LIKE CORBETT AND OTHERS --

THE TIDE WILL BEGIN TO TURN,

AND MAYBE WE CAN AVERT THE

WRATH OF THE LORD.

BUT IT WILL COME UPON THIS

NATION UNLESS WE DO

SOMETHING.

WELL, WE'VE GOT A HAPPY

STORY.

MAN, I LOVE STORIES ABOUT

HEAVEN.

Wendy: I DO, TOO.

COMING UP, A WOMAN WHO DIED,

WOKE UP IN HEAVEN, AND SAW A

LITTLE GIRL.

I WATCHED HER PICK HER

BASKET UP AND DIP IT IN THE

LIGHT.

SHE WOULD SCOOP IT AND THEN

SHE WOULD DUMP THE LIGHT

OUT, AS IF IT WAS WATER.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHO

THIS CHILD WAS AND SEE WHAT

ELSE HAPPENED DURING THOSE

NINE MINUTES IN HEAVEN.

Pat: IT'S SO EASY FOR

SOMEBODY TO SAY I DON'T

BELIEVE IN SOMETHING I CAN'T

SEE.

I CAN'T SEE HELL.

I CAN'T SEE HEAVEN.

I CAN'T SEE LIFE AFTER

DEATH.

WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE IN IT?

WELL, THERE WAS A YOUNG LADY

NAMED CRYSTAL MCVEIGH, AND

SHE WAS SORT OF IN THAT

CAMP.

SHE WAS A EXCEPT TIC.

SKEPTIC.

SHE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN GOD.

SHE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN LIFE

AFTER DEATH.

BUT FOR THAT YOUNG LADY IT

ALL CHANGED ON

DECEMBER 10th, 2009, AFTER

CRYSTAL SPENT NINE MINUTES

IN HEAVEN.

I INSTANTLY FELL TO MY

KNEES IN FRONT OF HIM.

AND I KNEW THAT I WAS

FALLING IN THE PRESENCE OF

GOD.

Reporter: CRYSTAL

MCVEIGH WASN'T HAVING A

DREAM.

SHE HAD DIED AND SAYS SHE

WOKE UP IN HEAVEN.

AND IT WAS THIS GOD I HAD

RUN FROM MY WHOLE LIFE.

Reporter: HER JOURNEY

AWAY FROM HIM BEGAN WHEN SHE

WAS MOLESTED AT THREE YEARS

OLD.

I GREW UP BELIEVING THAT

I WAS DISGUSTING AND BROKEN

AND FATALITY.

Reporter: CRYSTAL WENT

TO CHURCH WITH HER MOTHER.

WHEN SHE WAS EIGHT, SHE

ACCEPTED CHRIST AND WAS

BAPTIZED.

SHE HOPED THAT WOULD CLEANSE

HER FROM THE GUILT AND SHAME

OF BEING MOLESTED.

BUT THE ABUSE CONTINUED

UNTIL SHE WAS 12 YEARS OLD.

I DECIDED THAT THERE WERE

TWO OPTIONS: ONE, THERE WAS

A GOD AND HE DIDN'T LOVE ME

FOR WHATEVER REASON BECAUSE

HE HADN'T STOPPED THE THINGS

THAT HAD HAPPENED IN MY

LIFE, HE HASN'T SAVED ME,

OR, TWO, THERE WAS NO GOD.

Reporter: IN HER TEEN

YEARS, CRYSTAL STARTED USING

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AND WAS

PROMISCUOUS.

BY THE TIME SHE WAS 21,

CRYSTAL WAS A DIVORCED

MOTHER WITH TWO CHILDREN.

FINALLY AT 28, SHE MARRIED

VIRGIL AND THEY HAD TWINS.

10 MONTHS LATER IN

DECEMBER 2009, DOCTORS

PERFORMED A ROUTINE

PROCEDURE THAT TRIGGERED PAN

PANCREATITIS.

HER MOTHER BONNIE CAME TO

THE HOSPITAL.

SHE DIDN'T LOOK RIGHT.

SHE LOOKED SWOLLEN TO ME.

I FELT VERY CALM AND VERY

PEACEFUL.

I REMEMBER OPENING MY EYES

AND SEEING MY MOM SIT AT THE

FOOT OF MY BED, AND I TOLD

HER THAT I LOVED HER.

SHE FELT COLD.

AND WHEN I LOOKED UP, HER

LIPS WERE BLUE, AND SHE

WASN'T BREATHING.

AND I TURNED AROUND AND HER

FACE WAS BLACK.

SO I STARTED SCREAMING, SHE

IS DEAD!

THE NURSE TOLD ME, YOU NEED

TO LEAVE.

I TOLD HER, I'M NOT GOING

ANYWHERE.

CODE BLUE, WE NEED THE

CRASH CART IN HERE, QUICK.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

AND NURSES TRIED TO

RESUSCITATE CRYSTAL.

ABOUT THAT TIME, CRYSTAL'S

HUSBAND, VIRGIL, ARRIVED.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF SHE WAS

ALIVE.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF SHE WAS

DEAD.

I KNOW WHY THEY DIDN'T

WANT ME IN THERE.

IT WAS VIOLENT.

HER NINE MINUTES IN HEAVEN

WERE MY NINE MINUTES IN

HELL.

Reporter: WHILE THE

TEAM WORKED TO REVIVE HER,

CRYSTAL SAYS SHE WAS IN

HEAVEN.

THE FIRST THING I

REMEMBER BECOMING AWARE OF

WAS I WAS STILL ME.

I WAS STILL THE ME WHO HAD

JUST TOLD MY MOTHER THAT I

LOVED HER AND DIED.

AND I WAS VERY AWARE OF THE

FACT THAT I HAD JUST DIED.

BUT I WAS ALSO THE ME THAT

HAD EXISTED FROM THE MOMENT

THAT GOD HAD CREATED ME.

THE LIGHT CAME TO ME AS IF I

WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

TUNNEL, AND YET IT WENT ON

FOR ETERNITY.

I REMEMBER BEING SO AT PEACE

AND SO BATHED IN THIS LIGHT

AND THIS LOVE.

Reporter: SHE KNEW SHE

WAS IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

I DIDN'T SEE A FACE.

I DIDN'T SEE ANY FEATURES,

OTHER THAN THIS BEAUTIFUL

LIGHT.

AND WORDS LIKE AMAZING AND

PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL --

THEY FALL SO DRASTICALLY

SHORT.

I COULD NOT GET ENOUGH OF

HIM.

I COULD NOT BREATHE ENOUGH

OF HIM IN.

I COULD NOT GET CLOSE ENOUGH

TO THE LIGHT, AND THE LIGHT

WAS ALL OVER ME.

Reporter: THEN CRYSTAL

SAYS SHE TRIED TO ASK GOD A

QUESTION.

I WANTED TO KNOW WHY HE

DIDN'T LOVE ME, OR WHY HE

LET BAD THINGS HAPPEN.

AND YET AS I STOOD IN FRONT

OF HIM AND I FACED HIM AND I

FELL TO MY KNEES AND I

RAISED MY HANDS, THE

QUESTION I CALLED OUT TO HIM

WAS WHY DIDN'T I DO MORE FOR

YOU?

BECAUSE IN AN INSTANT HE

REVEALED HIS TRUE SELF TO

ME, WHICH IS LOVE.

I HAD NEVER TRULY WORSHIPPED

GOD EVER, IN MY ENTIRE

LIFE.

BUT I FELL IN FRONT OF HIM

AND I WORSHIPPED HIM.

AND AS I LAY THERE IN

WORSHIP AND AWE OF THIS

CREATOR, I REMEMBER SAYING,

I COULD WORSHIP YOU FOR

ETERNITY.

Reporter: CRYSTAL

TRAVELLED WITH GOD DOWN A

TUNNEL, TOWARDS THE GATES OF

HEAVEN.

SHE NOTICED A SMALL CHILD

AHEAD OF HER.

SHE WORE A BONNET ON HER

HEAD AND SHE HAD A LITTLE

BASKET IN HER HAND.

I WATCHED HER PICK HER

BASKET UP AND DIP IT IN THE

LIGHT.

SHE WOULD SCOOP IT AND THEN

DUMP THE LIGHT OUT, AS IF IT

WAS WATER.

AND THE LIGHT WOULD CASCADE

OUT OF HER BASKET.

AND SHE WOULD THROW HER HEAD

BACK AND SHE WOULD LAUGH.

AND EVERY TIME SHE LAUGHED,

EVERY TIME SHE MOVED, MY

SPIRIT BEGAN TO SWELL, AS

LIKE A BALLOON, WITH LOVE.

Reporter: GOD REVEALED

TO CRYSTAL THAT SHE WAS

SEEING HERSELF AT THREE

YEARS OLD.

SHE WAS ME AT THE MOMENT

THAT THE ENEMY STEPPED INTO

MY LIFE AND WHISPERED THAT I

WAS WORTHLESS, THAT I WAS

BROKEN, THAT I WAS

DISGUSTING, THAT I GOT

EVERYTHING THAT I DESERVED.

SHE WAS THE 3-YEAR-OLD THAT

HEARD THAT GOD DIDN'T LOVE

HER, THAT HE HAD ABANDONED

HER, THAT HE HAD FORSAKEN

HERE, AND THAT GOD DIDN'T

EXIST.

AND HE ALLOWED ME TO KNOW

THAT HE HAD ALLOWED ME TO

LOOK THROUGH HIS EYES AND TO

SEE THE TRUTH.

AND THE TRUTH SET ME FREE.

Reporter: ALL OF

CRYSTAL'S DOUBTS ABOUT THE

EXISTENCE OF GOD AND HIS

LOVE FOR HER FADED AWAY.

I REMEMBER WHAT IT FELT

LIKE TO BE IN CHAINS.

AND I REMEMBER THE MOMENT

THAT HE TOOK THEM FROM ME.

I WAS FREE.

AND HE DIDN'T JUST SAY,

CRYSTAL, I LOVE YOU.

HE ALLOWED ME TO EXPERIENCE

HIS LOVE, AND HIS LOVE

ALMOST MADE ME EXPLODE.

Reporter: AND THEN

CRYSTAL SAYS SHE HEARD HER

MOTHER CALLING HER NAME.

AND I SAID, CAN I GO TELL

HER THAT I'M OKAY?

AND HE SAID, THE CHOICE IS

UP TO YOU.

AND I TURNED AWAY FROM THIS

LIGHT TO GO AND FIND WHERE

HER VOICE WAS COMING FROM.

AND WHEN I TURNED, HE SAID,

TELL THEM WHAT YOU CAN

REMEMBER.

AND I REMEMBER CALLING BACK,

I'LL REMEMBER EVERYTHING,

AND I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

AND I LOOKED DOWN THROUGH

THE FLOOR OF THIS TUNNEL OF

HEAVEN, AND IT WAS AS IF I

WAS LOOKING AT A MILLION

SHIMMERING DIAMONDS.

AND THE INSTANT THAT I

NOTICED THOSE DIAMOND-LIKE

SUBSTANCES, I WAS BACK IN MY

BODY.

Reporter: CRYSTAL WOKE

UP IN THE HOSPITAL,

SURROUNDED BY THE MEDICAL

TEAM.

AND I TURNED TO MY MOM,

WHO WAS CRYING, AND I TOLD

HER THAT I WAS IN HEAVEN,

THAT I WAS WITH GOD, AND

THAT I WAS IN THE MOST

BEAUTIFUL LIGHT, AND THAT I

WAS OKAY.

Reporter: CRYSTAL LEFT

THE HOSPITAL EIGHT DAYS

LATER.

SHE'LL TELL YOU YOU SHE LEFT

THERE A DIFFERENT PERSON.

MY LIFE HAS COMPLETELY

CHANGED.

THE PERSON THAT DIED IN THAT

HOSPITAL ROOM IS NOT THE

SAME PERSON WHO CAME BACK IN

SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT I

KNOW THERE IS A GOD WHO

LOVES US.

I KNOW THERE IS A FATHER WHO

REALLY IS LISTENING TO US,

WHO REALLY IS HOLDING US.

Reporter: CRYSTAL HAS

WRITTEN ABOUT HER JOURNEY IN

HER "NEW YORK TIMES"

BEST-SELLING BOOK CALLED

"WAKING UP IN HEAVEN."

PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME WHAT

IS YOUR MESSAGE?

WHAT MESSAGE DID HE SEND YOU

BACK WITH?

AND IT IS SO SIMPLE.

THAT IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER

WHO WE ARE, WHERE WE'VE

BEEN, WHAT'S BEEN DONE TO

US, WHAT WE'VE DONE, THAT

HIS LOVE IS SO VAST AND SO

GREAT THAT IT ENCOMPASSES

EVERYTHING.

AND THAT WE HAVE THAT LOVE,

NOT FOR ANYTHING THAT WE

HAVE DONE TO DESERVE IT, BUT

BECAUSE HE FINDS US WORTHY

AND BECAUSE HE GIVES US A

CHOICE TO CHOOSE HIM.

Pat: WHAT A MESSAGE.

WHAT A THRILLING MESSAGE.

FOLKS, HEAVEN IS REAL.

THERE IS A HEAVEN.

THERE IS A LIFE AFTER

DEATH.

WHEN YOU DIE, YOUR SPIRIT

DOESN'T DIE.

IT GOES ON FOREVER.

IT IS IMMORTAL.

WE HAVE IMMORTAL SPIRITS.

AND THE CHOICE WE MAKE IN

THIS LIFE IS WHERE WE'RE

GOING TO SPEND ETERNITY.

BUT ALL OF THE LOVE OF GOD

IS SO WONDERFUL.

AND CRYSTAL HAD REJECTED IT,

AND THOUGHT THAT SHE WAS

DIRTY AND THAT GOD DIDN'T

LOVE HER.

BUT I'LL TELL YOU, GOD LOVES

YOU.

YEAH, YOU MAY HAVE HAD

DIFFICULT TIMES.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN

PERSECUTED.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN REJECTED.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN ABUSED.

YOU MAY BE THE VICTIM OF

INCEST.

YOU MAY HAVE HAD ALL KINDS

OF HORRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN,

BUT GOD LOVES YOU.

AND THAT LOVE GOES ON

FOREVER.

AND IT IS INDESCRIBABLE.

THE EYE HASN'T SEEN, EAR

HASN'T HEARD, NEITHER HAS IT

ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF

MAN OF WHAT GOD HAS

CONCEIVED FOR HIM.

RIGHT NOW THE CHOICE IS

YOURS.

DO YOU WANT TO SPEND

ETERNITY WITH THE FATHER IN

LIGHT, IN JOY, IN PEACE, IN

INDESCRIBEABLE LOVE?

OR DO YOU WANT TO GO AWAY

FROM HIM IN INDESCRIBABLE

TORMENT?

WHICH DO YOU WANT?

YOU SAY, OF COURSE I WANT TO

BE WITH THE FATHER.

WELL, IF YOU DO, YOU'VE GOT

TO TURN RIGHT NOW AND ASK

HIM.

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU IN A

SIMPLE PRAYER, NOTHING

COMPLICATED.

AND I WANT YOU TO PRAY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE A BIG

THEOLOGICAL COURSE TO

LEARN.

JUST PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW,

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- PRAY WITH ME.

PRAY WITH ME NOW.

JESUS, I'M SORRY, LORD.

I'M SORRY FOR THE WAY I'VE

LIVED.

I'M SORRY FOR WHAT HAS BEEN

DONE TO ME.

I'M SORRY FOR WHAT I'VE DONE

TO OTHERS.

FORGIVE ME, LORD.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

I WANT TO RECEIVE YOU AS MY

SAVIOR.

AND I WANT TO TAKE YOU AS

LORD OF MY LIFE.

AND I WANT TO SPEND ETERNITY

IN THAT REALM OF LIGHT,

WHERE THE FATHER IS.

WHERE THERE IS PURE LOVE.

I SURRENDER TO THAT LIGHT.

I SURRENDER TO LOVE.

I SURRENDER TO THE CROSS OF

JESUS CHRIST. AND FROM THIS

MOMENT ON, LORD, I'M YOURS.

FILL ME NOW WITH YOURSELF.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, IF YOU

PRAYED WITH ME, IT'S REAL

SIMPLE.

I JUST WANT YOU TO PRAISE

THE LORD FROM THIS MOMENT

ON.

I WANT YOU, ALSO, TO GROW IN

THE LORD.

YOU KNOW, THIS IS JUST THE

BEGINNING.

THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF

OTHER GREAT THINGS AHEAD OF

YOU.

IT IS IN THIS LITTLE

BOOKLET.

I DID A C.D., AND IT'S ALL

IN HERE.

I HAVE A C.D., AND I ALSO

HAVE A LITTLE BOOKLET THAT

WILL TELL YOU WHAT JUST

HAPPENED, AND TELL YOU MORE

ABOUT WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU.

JUST PICK UP THE PHONE AND

CALL IN AND SAY, LOOK, I

PRAYED WITH PAT AND GAVE MY

HEART TO THE LORD.

SEND ME THIS "NEW DAY."

I WANT YOU TO KNOW I GAVE MY

HEART TO JESUS.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

THERE IS SOMEBODY AT THE

PHONES WHO LOVES YOU.

WE'RE ALL GOING TO BE IN

HEAVEN TOGETHER, AND THEY'RE

THERE TO WELCOME YOU.

SO PICK UP THE PHONE.

1-800-759-0700.

OKAY.

LET'S GO BACK OVER TO

WENDY.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

LISA WANTS TO KNOW, "IS IT

OKAY TO LIE IF YOU WORK WITH

THE GOVERNMENT?"

PAT WILL TACKLE LISA'S

QUESTION AND MUCH MORE OF

YOUR E-MAILS, COMING UP.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWS BREAK.

THE SUPREME COURT AGREED

TODAY TO RECONSIDER THE

CONSTITUTIONALITY OF A

MASSACHUSETTS LAW BARRING

ABORTION PROTESTS WITHIN

35 FEET OF AN ABORTION

CLINIC.

OPPONENTS OF ABORTION WANT

THE 2007 LAW THROWN OUT.

THEY SAY IT VIOLATES THEIR

FREE SPEECH RIGHTS BY

PREVENTING THEM FROM TALKING

TO WOMEN ENTERING AND

LEAVING CLINICS.

ORAL ARGUMENTS ARE SLATED

FOR OCTOBER.

COLORADO OFFICIALS HAVE

RULED THAT A 6-YEAR-OLD BOY

CAN USE THE GIRLS' BATHROOM

AT SCHOOL.

THE BOY'S PARENTS AND OTHER

TRANSGENDER ACTIVISTS ARE

CELEBRATING THAT DECISION.

THE DENVER POST REPORTS THAT

COY MATHIS IDENTIFIES

HIMSELF AS A GIRL, AND HIS

PARENTS AGREE.

THE TRANSGENDER LEGAL

DEFENSE AND EDUCATION FUND

FILED A COMPLAINT ON THE

FAMILY'S BEHALF, CLAIMING

COY HAS BEEN DISCRIMINATED

AGAINST.

HE WILL NOW BE TREATED AS A

GIRL AT EAGLE SIGHT

ELEMENTARY LOCATED IN

FOUNTAIN, COLORADO.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

WELCOME BACK.

IT IS TIME FOR "BRING IT

ON."

PAT, ARE YOU READY?

Pat: LET'S GIVE THE A

SHOT AND WE'LL SEE.

Wendy: THIS FIRST ONE

IS INTERESTING: "IS IT OKAY

TO LIE IF YOU WORK FOR THE

GOVERNMENT?"

Pat: IF YOU'RE NAME IS

JAY CARNEY, AND YOUR THE

PRESS SECRETARY OF THE WHITE

HOUSE, OF COURSE.

THE QUESTION IS HOW DO YOU

LIE WITHOUT LYING.

HOW DO YOU STRETCH THE TRUTH

TO MAKE IT APPEAR YOU'RE

TELLING THE TRUTH?

THEY A DANCE, THEY DANCE,

AND THEY DANCE.

I SENT THE HEAD OF RONALD

REAGAN'S HEAD OF ECONOMIC

AFFAIRS A SET OF BALLET

SHOES BECAUSE I SAID YOU

DANCE AROUND THE ISSUES SO

SPLENDIDLY.

Wendy: "HOW CAN THE

INSTRUCTIONS IN DEUTERONOMY

25: 10 BE ACHIEVED IN OUR

DAY?"

Pat: IF YOU DIE, YOU'VE

GOT TO MARRY YOUR BROTHER'S

WIFE, AND IF YOU DIE, THE

NEXT ONE MARRIES HER AND THE

NEXT ONE MARRIES HER, AND

THEN WHO'S WIF WOULD SHE

WIFE WOULD SHE BE?

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE TO DO

THAT ANYMORE.

WE DON'T MARRY THE WIDOW OF

THE DECEASED BROTHER.

IT IS A NICE THING, BUT WE

DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE.

SO IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE

THINGS IN THE BIBLE THAT I

DON'T THINK IS APPLICABLE

TODAY.

Wendy: THAT IS PROBABLY

PART OF SURVIVAL AND TAKING

CARE OF EVERYONE.

Pat: YOU TAKE CARE OF

THEM, BUT YOU DON'T MARRY

THEM.

THE IDEA WAS SO THAT YOU

HAVE SEX WITH THE WIDOW SO

SHE'LL HAVE A CHILD WITH

YOUR BROTHER TO KEEP THE

NAME ALIVE.

THAT'S THE IDEA.

Wendy: IS THERE ANY

SOLID EVIDENCE ON THE DATA

THE BOOK OF REVELATION.

WAS IT WRITTEN DURING THE

REIGN OF NERO?

Pat: NO, IT WASN'T.

NERO STARTED RULING, I

THINK, IN 54 B.C.

AND HE WAS IN THERE FOR A

FEW YEARS DOING TERRIBLE

THINGS, INCLUDING BURNING

ROME.

AND HE WAS OUT AT NIGHT,

CARRYING ON AND CARROUSING

AND RAPING WOMEN.

NEVERTHELESS, IT LOOKS LIKE

JOHN -- IT SAYS IN THE BOOK

OF REVELATION, IT IS THOUGHT

BY SCHOLARS THAT WAS ABOUT

90 A.D., SO IT WAS AFTER

NERO.

BUT THERE WERE 10 DISTINCT

PERSECUTIONS OF CHRISTIANS

DURING THAT COUPLE HUNDRED

YEAR PERIOD.

AND NERO WAS JUST ONE OF THE

MANY BAD EMPERORS.

HE WAS PERSECUTING

CHRISTIANS.

THERE WASN'T ANY QUESTION.

Wendy: ELAVISA WRITES,

"I KNOW GOD FORGIVES ME WHEN

I ASK FOR IT, BUT MY

QUESTION IS HOW CAN I

FORGIVE MYSELF SINCE I'M THE

REASON WHY I'M SUFFERING?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS HE

WANTS US TO HAVE OUR

CONSCIENCE CLEANSED FROM

DEAD WORKS TO SERVE THE

LIVING GOD.

GOD DOES NOT KEEP BEATING US

UP.

HE TALKS ABOUT THE SEA OF

HIS FORGETFULNESS.

YOU NEED TO WRITE IN DOWN,

PUT A MATCH TO IT, AND SAY,

THEY'RE GONE.

I'M NOW FREE.

GOD DOESN'T WANT YOU BEATING

YOURSELF UP.

HE DOESN'T GET ANY PLEASURE

OUT OF YOU SITTING AROUND

SAYING GOD, I'M SO

HORRIBLE.

HOW CAN I EVER FORGET

FORGIVE MYSELF.

THE BIBLE SAYS CONSCIENCE

CLEANSED FROM DEAD WORKS TO

SERVE THE LIVING GOD.

GOD WANTS YOU AS A SERVANT.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS.

Wendy: AND HIS MERCIES

ARE NEW EVERY MORNING.

HALLELUJAH.

"I FEEL LIKE I'M IN A

DESERT.

HOW CAN I KNOW IF THIS IS

THE WILL OF GOD?"

Pat: WELL, THERE ARE

TIMES YOU GO THROUGH THE

DESERT, BUT THE WAY OUT OF

THE DESERT IS THROUGH

OVERCOMING PRAISE.

START THINKING GOD.

GOD, I PRAISE YOU.

I PRAISE YOU FOR YOUR LOVE.

I THANK YOU FOR YOUR

GOODNESS.

I THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE.

I THANK YOU THAT JESUS DIED

FOR ME.

EVERYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF

TO THANK HIM FOR, AND AS YOU

PRAISE HIM, YOU WILL COME

OUT OF THE DESERT.

Wendy: HE LED JESUS

INTO THE WILDERNESS --

Pat: FOR A SHORT TIME.

HE WASN'T THERE FOREVER.

THE ISRAELITES WERE TO PASS

THROUGH THE DESERT, BUT THEY

WERE ON THE WAY TO THE

PROMISED LAND.

Wendy: KNOW YOU'RE JUST

PASSING THROUGH.

TARA WANTS TO KNOW: "IF

DEPRESSION IS DEMONIC, WHY

DOES IT SEEM IT IS THAT

EVERYONE GOES THROUGH.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY'RE

SAYING EVERYONE IS DEMON

POSSESSED.

I WISH SOMEONE COULD GET IT

STRAIGHT FOR THESE PEOPLE."

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

I'M GOING TO GET IT STRAIGHT

IN A MINUTE AND A HALF.

YOU CAN HAVE DEPRESSION IF

YOU EAT TOO MUCH

CARBOHYDRATES, TOO MUCH

SWEETS, IF YOU DRINK

ALCOHOL, IF YOU SMOKE TOO

MUCH --

Wendy: NOT ENOUGH

SLEEP.

Pat: IF YOU LOSE SLEEP,

YOU GET DEPRESSED.

IF YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH

EXERCISE OR SUNSHINE.

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

THINGS.

AND THERE ARE PHYSICAL

THINGS THAT GO ON.

AND THERE ARE PHYSIOLOGICAL

AND CHEMICAL REACTIONS IN

YOUR BODY THAT CAN CAUSE

DEPRESSION.

THAT'S WHY SOME OF THESE

MEDICATIONS ARE HELPFUL.

CAN IT BE DEMONIC?

DEMONS CAN DO A LOT OF

THINGS, BUT TO SAY

DEPRESSION IS ALWAYS DEMONIC

IS NONSENSE.

IT GOES IN THE FACE OF

MEDICAL NONSENSE.

I WOULD TELL SOMEBODY EAT

PROTEIN.

EAT VEGETABLES.

STOP SWEETS AND SUGARY

DRINKS, COKES AND PEPSIS,

AND THAT KIND OF STUFF.

GET OUT AND EXERCISE.

AND GET A LOT OF SUNLIGHT.

AND THEN -- AND PLENTY OF

SLEEP.

AND IF YOU STILL HAVE

DEPRESSION, THEN SEE A

DOCTOR AND SEE IF MAYBE

THERE ISN'T SOMETHING -- GET

A BLOOD GLUCOSE TEST TO SEE

WHAT YOUR BLOOD LEVEL IS.

BUT DEMONS, LAST.

Wendy: THERE IS SO MUCH

WE CAN DO TO HELP GOD.

WELL, EIGHT MONTHS AFTER

SUPER STORM ANDY, THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE ARE STILL

HOMELESS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

BEEN ON THE SCENE SINCE THE

VERY BEGINNING, HELPING

PEOPLE LIKE BARBARA JOYCE, A

THREE TIMES CANCER SURVIVOR,

WHO'S HOME WAS COVERED WITH

THREE FEET OF WATER.

Reporter: THIS SHOWS

THE DESTRUCTION SUPER STORM

SANDY LEFT BEHIND.

FLOODWATERS DESTROYED 2800

HOMES.

A 6-ALARM FIRE LEFT A

HUNDRED MORE IN RUINS.

THIS STORM, SANDY, WAS

THE WORST WE EVER HAD.

Reporter: BARBARA JOYCE

HAS LIVED IN BREEZY POINT

SINCE SHE WAS

FIVE, THE

DAUGHTER OF A POLICE

OFFICER.

WITH NO FAMILY CLOSE BY, AND

SANDY BEARING DOWN, BARBARA

TOOK REFUGE AT A FRIEND'S

HOUSE.

I LEFT AT 3:00 IN THE

MORNING THE NIGHT BEFORE,

AND SOME PEOPLE STAYED AND

THEY ALMOST DIED.

Reporter: BARBARA'S

HOME TOOK ON 10 FEET OF

WATER, SO SHE LOST MOST OF

HER BELONGINGS.

PHOTOS OF A LIFETIME OF

MEMORIES WERE DESTROYED.

IT LEFT THIS THREE-TIME

CANCER SURVIVOR SHATTERED,

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

HER LIFE, HOMELESS.

I WAS SUFFERING.

I WAS STRUGGLING.

BECAUSE NOW WHERE AM I GOING

TO GO.

Reporter: BARBARA

STAYED WITH FRIENDS AS LONG

AS SHE COULD, BUT HAD NO

PLACE TO CALL HOME.

I KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE

HOMELESS, AND I COULD FEEL

FOR THE PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT

ON THE STREET, BECAUSE I WAS

THERE.

Reporter: WITHOUT FLOOD

INSURANCE, PAR BR, BARBARA

DIDN'T HAVE THE INSURANCE TO

REBUILD.

BUT "OPERATION BLESSING" WAS

ALREADY ON THE SCENE.

WE MET BARBARA JUST A FEW

DAYS AFTER THE STORM.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WERE

THE FIRST PEOPLE TO GIVE ME

A HAND.

THEY WERE THERE FROM DAY

ONE.

Reporter: TEAMS AND

VOLUNTEERS BEGAN THE CLEANUP

AND HELPED BARBARA RECOVER

WHAT SHE COULD.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WOULD

SURPRISE BARBARA WITH A

TOTALLY REBUILT AND

FURNISHED HOME.

TODAY IS REVEAL DAY, AND

WE'RE SO EXCITED BECAUSE IN

LESS THAN THREE HOURS, WE'LL

BE WELCOMING MS. BARBARA

JOYCE BACK HOME.

WE'RE MOVING IN FURNITURE,

AND CLEANING UP THE HOUSE.

OUTSIDE THEY'RE PLANTING

FLOWERS, MAKING THE

LANDSCAPE BEAUTIFUL.

BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO GIVE

THIS HOMEOWNER A SURPRISE OF

A LIFETIME.

WELCOME HOME, BARBARA!

[CHEERING]

OH, IT'S BEAUTIFUL!

IT'S SUCH A GOOD SURPRISE.

HONEST.

I CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU

HOW GRATEFUL I AM.

YOU TOOK MY STRESS AWAY, MY

STRUGGLING AND SUFFERING.

Reporter: BARBARA IS NO

LONGER HOMELESS.

ONCE AGAIN, SHE HAS A PLACE

TO CALL HER OWN.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU,

THANK YOU.

I'M SO HAPPY.

I'M SO HAPPY.

I'M SO BLESSED AND SO
