A GANG LEADER --

BY THE TIME I WAS 15, I

HAD ABOUT 11 ATTEMPTED

MURDERS.

AND A COLD-BLOODED

MURDERER.

FIND OUT WHO STOPPED HIS

SPREE.

I'M THINKING IT IS THE

COPS, AND WHEN I TURNED

AROUND, IT WAS A LITTLE OLD

LADY.

AND WHAT SAVED HIS LIFE.

I WAS SO CONFUSED, I

COULDN'T EVEN SLEEP AT

NIGHT.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB".

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: HEY, FOLKS,

WELCOME TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

DELIGHTED TO HAVE ALL OF YOU

WITH US.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

OBAMACARE IS NOT VERY

POPULAR, SO THE GOVERNMENT

HAS GOT TO ADVERTISE IT.

HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK

THEY'RE GOING TO SPEND ON

ADVERTISING THIS WONDERFUL

PROGRAM?

Terry: I BET IT'S

ASTRONOMICAL.

Pat: DO YOU WANT TO

GUESS?

Terry: I DON'T KNOW,

MAYBE $20 MILLION?

$50MILLION.

Pat: HOW ABOUT

$700 MILLION OR MORE.

Terry: WHOA!

Pat: THEY HAVE GONE

INTO THE FILES TO FIND OUT

WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO

SPEND.

Terry: WHAT ARE THEY

GOING TO DO?

Pat: THEY'RE GOING TO

DO EVERYTHING TO TWIST YOUR

ARM SO YOU'LL LIKE WHAT

THEY'RE SELLING.

A SPOON FULL OF SUGAR MAKES

THE MEDICINE GO DOWN.

IT IS HORRIBLE.

AND PEOPLE DON'T LIKE IT.

THE REPUBLICANS ARE SAYING

WE'RE UPPING THE ANTE IN OUR

FIGHT AGAINST OBAMACARE.

AND WE'RE GOING TO CUT ITS

FUNDING IF POSSIBLE, IN

CONGRESS.

Terry: ON THE FACE OF

THIS MASSIVE ADVERTISING

CAMPAIGN PAT JUST

MENTIONED.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE STORY

FOR YOU.

Reporter: THE PRICE TAG

FOR THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH

CARE OVERHAUL IS GETTING

BIGGER.

THE COST OF OBAMACARE IS

THREE TIMES WHAT THEY

ORIGINALLY EXPECTED IT TO BE

AND GETTING HIGHER EVERY

DAY.

Reporter: BUT

REPUBLICANS ARE DRAWING A

NEW LINE IN THE SAND AND

THREATENING TO SHUT DOWN THE

GOVERNMENT.

12 SENATORS AND 66

CONGRESSMEN HAVE SIGNED

LETTERS TO THEIR LEADERS,

DECLARING THEY WILL NOT

SUPPORT A NEW GOVERNMENT

FUNDING BILL IN SEPTEMBER,

IF IT INCLUDES FUNDS FOR THE

HEALTH CARE LAW.

THE MOVE COMES AFTER THE

WHITE HOUSE HAS DELAYED THE

MANDATE THAT REQUIRES

BUSINESSES TO PROVIDE HEALTH

CARE COVERAGE FOR THEIR

EMPLOYEES.

AND LAUNCHES A NEW HEALTH

CARE ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN.

THE NEW ADS TARGET A TOUGH

AUDIENCE TO REACH: THE

WORKING POOR, YOUNG PEOPLE,

AND THOSE WHO GAVE UP THEIR

INSURANCE BECAUSE OF THE

COST.

THE PRICE TAG FOR THIS PUSH

IS NEARLY $700 MILLION.

THE LAW, AS IT WAS

DESIGNED, IS IMPOSSIBLE TO

IMPLEMENT.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE LEARNING

AS THEY RUN INTO ALL OF

THESE PRACTICAL PROBLEMS.

EITHER THIS THING IS GOING

TO BE REPEALED OR

SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGED AND

REFORMED INTO SOMETHING THAT

ACTUALLY CAN BE DONE.

Reporter: OBAMACARE

REMAINS UNPOPULAR WITH

AMERICANS.

WALL STREET JOURNAL POLL, IN

IT 47% SAY IT IS A BAD

IDEA.

34% SAY IT IS A GOOD ONE.

FOR NOW, CONFUSION AND

UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THE LAW IS

STIFLING ECONOMIC GROWTH AND

LEAVING BUSINESS OWNERS

WORRIED.

THERE IS A LOT OF

HEARTBURN AND NERVOUSNESS

FOR WHAT IT WILL MEAN FOR

THEIR BOTTOM LINE.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT WE DON'T KNOW

IS HOW MUCH DEGENERATE THAT

MAN CAN DO BEFORE HIS TERM

ENDS.

RIGHT NOW HE IS ON A SPEECH

CRUSADE.

IT LOOKS LIKE -- IT IS A

PERPETUAL CAMPAIGN.

HE IS GOOD AT CAMPAIGNING.

HIS EXPERIENCE IS COMMUNITY

ORGANIZER.

SO HE FIGURES HE CAN GO OUT

AND PUMP UP THE TROOPS.

THE TROUBLE IS THERE COMES A

TIME WHEN YOU HAVE TO

DELIVER SOMETHING.

HAVE YOU TO HAVE A PROGRAM

THAT WORKS.

AND WHEN ALL OF THE PROGRAMS

YOU PUT OUT DON'T WORK, THEN

YOU GO OUT AND LIE ABOUT

THEM.

AND PEOPLE BEGIN TO THINK

NI PIN PIN PINOCCHIO, IT IS

NOT WORK.

YOU CAN FOOL SOME OF THE

PEOPLE SOME OF THE TIME, AND

ALL OF THE PEOPLE SOME OF

THE TIME, BUT YOU CAN'T FOOL

ALL OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE

TIME.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE GOVERNMENT

IS PUSHING AHEAD WITH ITS

MASSIVE ELECTRONIC

SURVEILLANCE.

IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT, THEY

WANT THE PASSWORDS OF

EVERYBODY ON THEIR

ACCOUNTS.

THEY WANT TO KNOW THE SECRET

PASSWORDS.

Terry: AND DON'T EVEN

THINK IT IS BOLD TO ASK FOR

IT.

Pat: OH, MAN, IT IS

JUST HORRIBLE.

I UNDERSTAND THAT THE N.S.A.

DATA COLLECTION PLACE IS, I

THINK, SEVEN TIMES BIGGER

THAN THE PENTAGON.

IT IS ENORMOUS.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY ENORMOUS!

BIG BROTHER IS HUGE!

AND THIS THING HAS COME

ALONG, COME ALONG, AND

CONGRESS JUST BARELY

DETERMINED THEY WEREN'T

GOING TO VOTE AGAINST IT.

OH, MAN, IT MAKES YOU SICK

AT YOUR STOMACH.

LEE WEBB BRINGS US THAT

STORY.

Lee: PAT, AS YOU

MENTIONED, THE GOVERNMENT

WANTS MAJOR INTERNET

COMPANIES TO TURN OVER YOUR

PASSWORD.

CNN NEWS.COM REPORTS THE

MOVE IS A STEP UP IN

SURVEILLANCE TECHNIQUES.

IT CAN BE USED TO LOG INTO

YOUR ACCOUNT, REVIEW YOUR

PERSONAL INFORMATION AND

CORRESPONDENCE, AND EVEN

IMPERSONATE YOU.

MANY INTERNET COMPANIES HAVE

FLATLY REFUSED THE

GOVERNMENT'S DEMANDS FOR

PASSWORDS AND OTHER WAYS TO

GET INTO PERSONAL ACCOUNTS.

KENTUCKY REPUBLICAN SENATOR

RAND PAUL WANTS CHURCHES TO

CHALLENGE THE I.R.S.

HE SAYS PASTORS SHOULD SPEAK

BOLDLY FROM THE PULPIT

WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT THE

CONSEQUENCES.

HE GAVE AN EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW TO CBN'S DAVID

BRODY.

WHAT I WOULD SAY TO THE

CHURCHES IS BE BOLD AND

CHALLENGE THEM, AND SAY IN

OUR CHURCH WE'RE GOING STILL

GOING TO DISCUSS GOOD AND

EVIL AND WHAT WE THINK OF

IT.

AND SO BE IT IF THE

GOVERNMENT WANTS TO COME AND

CHALLENGE US.

BECAUSE IF WE DON'T STAND UP

AND TRY TO PROTECT OUR

GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS, THEY'RE

GOING TO BE TAKEN FROM US.

Lee: MANY PASTORS ARE

RELUCTANT TO SPEAK OUT ON

POLITICAL ISSUES BECAUSE

THEY FEAR BEING AUDITED OR

FINED BY THE I.R.S.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM DAVID AND HIS

POLITICAL COVERAGE BY

CHECKING OUT "THE BRODY

FILE" AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PRESIDENT OBAMA PRAISES THE

ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF MUSLIMS

IN AMERICA.

HE HOSTED HIS FIFTH ANNUAL

IFTAR DINNER AT THE WHITE

HOUSE THURSDAY.

IT IS AN OBSERVANCE OF THE

MUSLIM HOLY MONTH OF

RAMADAN.

THE PRESIDENT PRAISED MUSLIM

ENTREPRENEURS, INNOVATORS,

AND PIONEERS FOR THEIR

CONTRIBUTIONS.

President Obama:

THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORY,

ISLAMISTS HAVE CONTRIBUTED

TO THE HISTORY OF OUR

COUNTRY.

AND WE'VE SEEN THE RESULTS.

WE'VE SEEN THOSE RESULTS IN

GENERATIONS OF MUSLIM

IMMIGRANTS.

FARMERS AND FACTORY WORKERS,

HELPING TO LAY THE RAILROADS

AND BUILD OUR CITYS.

MUSLIM INNOVATORS WHO HELPED

BUILD SOME OF OUR HIGHEST

SKYSCRAPERS, AND WHO HELPED

TO UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF OUR

UNIVERSE.

Lee: PRESIDENT CLINTON

STARTED THE IFTA DINNERS AT

THE WHITE HOUSE, AND

PRESIDENT BUSH KEPT IT

GOING, AND SO IS OBAMA.

Pat: I WISH THEY WOULD

TELL US WHICH INNOVATORS

HELPED LAY THE RAILROADS AND

THE FOUNDATION FOR AMERICA

THAT ARE MUSLIM.

THEY AREN'T RECORDED IN ANY

HISTORY BOOKS.

I WONDER WHO HE HAD IN

MIND.

IT MAKES THEM FEEL GOOD TO

SAY YOU'RE PIONEERS AND YOU

HELPED LAY THE FABRIC OF

THIS GREAT COUNTRY.

THAT'S HOGWASH.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, YUGOSLAVIA IS

UGANDA IS TRYING TO DEAL

WITH A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS.

60,000 FLED THE AREA OF

UGANDA.

MANY FOUND REFUGE WITH

RELATIVES, BUT MANY ARE IN

NEED OF FOOD, WATER, AND A

PLACE TO LIVE.

JOSHUA DICKINSON IS AN

AMERICAN ENGINEER WHO HELPED

PROVIDE WATER TO THAT

REFUGEE CAMP.

TO BE HONEST, IT IS

HEARTBREAKING.

IT IS A STRUGGLE TO RUN THIS

REFUGEE CAMP, BUT IT IS THE

REASON I'M HERE, AND THE

REASON I FEEL GOD HAS CALLED

ME TO SERVE IS TO BE

AVAILABLE FOR TRAGEDIES LIKE

THIS.

WHEN WE FIRST GOT WATER

FLOWING IN THE CAMP, AND

MANY WOMEN AND CHILDREN WERE

COMING TO COLLECT WATER.

AND THE THANK YOUS, AND TO

KNOW THAT I'M HERE

REPRESENTING CHRIST IN A WAY

OF PROVIDING CLEAN WATER,

THAT WAS VERY FULFILLED.

Lee: DICKINSON WORKS

WITH THE PENNSYLVANIA-BASED

WORLD HARVEST MISSION.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT

THIS STORY ON MY Facebook

PAGE.

INCLUDING HOW JOSHUA

SACRIFICED MORE THAN JUST

THIS TIME AND TALENT TO HELP

THESE PEOPLE.

YOU CAN GO TO cbnnews.com

TO READ THAT.

PAT?

Pat: SOME YEARS AGO,

THERE WAS A HUMANITARIAN

CRISIS OF MASSIVE

PROPORTIONS, DURING THAT

RWANDAN CIVIL WARS, WHEN

THEY WERE FIGHTING EACH

OTHER.

AND THERE WERE ABOUT A

MILLION REFUGEES THAT FLED

INTO CONGO, THE DEMOCRATIC

REPUBLIC OF CONGO.

WE HAD MEDICAL TEAMS OVER

THERE AT THE TIME FROM CBN

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

THAT WERE WORKING, AND IT

WAS GHASTLY.

THERE WERE PEOPLE DYING ON

EITHER SIDE.

IT WAS LIKE LIVING IN PERG

TORY. PERG-- PERGATORY.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

WE WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR

SOMETHING IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD OF 200,000

REFUGEES OR SO IN THE LITTLE

PART WE WERE DEALING WITH,

BUT MEDICINE -- THEY HAD

WHAT THEY CALL DIARRHEA

ROUGE, AND IT WAS JUST

UNCONTROL DIARRHEA.

AND THESE PEOPLE WERE

WASTING AWAY.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH

WATER.

IT WAS TERRIBLE.

BUT TO BE ABLE TO HELP IN

ANY WAY WAS NICE.

BUT IT MAKES MY HEART SINK

TO SEE, ONCE AGAIN, SOME

GROUP OF REBELS STARTING A

WAR THAT LED, IN THIS CASE,

TO THOUSANDS, 20,000 OR SO

REFUGEES COMING ACROSS THE

BORDER.

IN THIS CASE FROM UGANDA,

AND THE LAST TIME THEY WERE

LEAVING RWANDA AND COMING

INTO THE CONGO, AROUND GOMA

AND THAT AREA, IN THE KEBU

PROVINCE.

BUT, AS I SAY, IT BREAKS

YOUR HEART.

THE BLOODSHED AND THE

SLAUGHTER THAT GOES ON.

LEE?

Lee: SATURDAY MARKS THE

60th ANNIVERSARY OF THE

CEASE-FIRE THAT ENDED THE

FIGHTING IN THE KOREAN WAR.

TECHNICALLY THE WAR ISN'T

OVER.

THE TWO SIDES HAVE ONLY

SIGNED A TRUCE.

NORTH KOREA IS MARKING THE

60-YEAR MILESTONE WITH A

MASSIVE CELEBRATION

TOMORROW, CALLING IT VICTORY

DAY.

HERE IN THE U.S., THE U.S./

KOREA INSTITUTE HOLD AN

EVENT.

JOHN WARNER SERVED IN THE

U.S. MARINE CORPS DURING THE

CONFLICT.

HE REMEMBERS HOW THE U.S.

WAS QUICKLY DOWNSIZING WHEN

THIS NEW WAR ERUPTED.

WE HAD NO THOUGHT THAT

THE UNITED STATES WOULD BE

CALLED UPON SO QUICKLY TO

RESPOND TO A NOBLE CAUSE,

AND THAT WAS TO PRESERVE

FREEDOM FOR SOUTH KOREA.

WE LEARNED A LESSON AS A

NATION: NEVER AGAIN TO ALLOW

OUR DEFENCES TO SLIP BELOW

THAT LEVEL OF THE

COMMITMENTS WE HAVE NOT ONLY

TO OURSELVES TO PROTECT

FREEDOM, BUT, INDEED, THOSE

OTHER ALLIES AND OTHER

FREEDOM-SEEKING PEOPLE OF

THE WORLD.

Lee: SENATOR WARNER WAS

ALSO THE NAVY SECRETARY AT

ONE POINT AND SERVED IN

WORLD WAR II IN THE UNITED

STATES NAVY.

TODAY THE DEMILITARIZED ZONE

BETWEEN NORTH AND SOUTH

KOREA REMAINS THE WORLD'S

MOST SOLID BORDER.

AND, PAT, WE SALUTE YOU,

TOO, AS A MARINE CORPS

OFFICER IN CAREER.

Pat: I WAS NORTH OF THE

38th PARALLEL, AND MY

FRIEND, JOHN WARNER, WHO HAD

BEEN WITH ME IN COLLEGE, HE

WAS WITH THE AIR WING DOWN

IN THE SOUTH.

HE CAME UP, AND HE WANTED TO

SEE WHAT IT WAS LIKE UP IN

THE FRONT LINE.

SO HE CAME UP, AND THEN HE

WENT BEYOND THE DIVISION

HEADQUARTERS AND WAS TAKING

PICTURES OF THE DEAD

COMBATANTS LYING ON THE WIRE

IN FRONT OF OUR POSITION.

BUT WE HAD A NICE TIME

TOGETHER.

HE IS A DEAR FRIEND, STILL

IS, AND HE AND I -- I HATE

TO SAY WE ENJOYED KOREA, BUT

WE KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING.

A GREAT TRAGEDY.

IT WAS A TRAGEDY OF MASSIVE

PROPORTIONS.

I WAS THERE WHEN DOUGLAS

MACARTHUR -- I WAS IN JAPAN

WHEN DOU DOUGLAS MACARTHUR

WAS A SUPREME COMMANDER.

HE HAD THE RIGHT IDEA, AND

THE PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON

WOULDN'T ACCEPT IT.

I THOUGHT WE LEARNED OUR

LESSON IN KOREA, BUT IT

TURNED OUT WE HUNDRED

DOLLAR.

HADN'T.

WE WENT TO VIETNAM.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR

VICTORY.

WE MADE SURE WE LOST BOTH OF

THOSE WARS, AND HERE THE

NORTH KOREANS ARE CROWING

ABOUT THE FACT IT IS THEIR

VICTORY.

WELL, IT WASN'T.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE

SHOULD HAVE WIPED THEM OFF

THE FACE OF THE EARTH AND

ESTABLISHED DEMOCRACY IN

THAT AREA.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL A LOT OF

GRIEF OVER RELATIVES SPLIT

UP IN THAT COUNTRY.

Pat: IT WOULD HAVE BEEN

SO EASY TO HAVE MOVED

FORWARD TO THE SO-CALLED

YALLOW, UP TO THE BORDER OF

CHINA, AND PA PACIFYED THAT

WHOLE COUNTRY INSTEAD OF

TURNING IT OVER TO KIM UN.

Terry: I UNDERSTAND WHY

YOU THINK CAREER I KOREA IS

A BEAUTIFUL PLACE --

Pat: IT WASN'T WHEN I

WAS THERE.

I REMEMBER BUCKETS OF DIRT

AND DUST -- AND SHE SAID,

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT,

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

THAT'S NOT THE KOREA I

KNEW.

Terry: COMING UP, A

JOURNALIST IN JERUSALEM

MAKES A SHOCKING DISCOVERY.

IT IS GRAFFITI FROM

RADICAL ISLAMISTS THAT

APPEARS THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST, THAT SAYS, "ON

SATURDAY WE KILL THE JEWS;

ON SUNDAY, WE KILL THE

CHRISTIANS."

Terry: THE PLOT TO KILL

THE JEWS FIRST, AND THEN

CHRISTIANS.

THAT'S ALL NEXT.

*

Pat: LISTEN TO THIS

SLOGAN, FIRST WE KILL THE

SATURDAY PEOPLE, AND THEN WE

KILL THE SUNDAY PEOPLE.

YOU SEE, THE MUSLIMS' HOLY

DAY IS FRIDAY, AND JEWS

SATURDAY, AND CHRISTIANS,

SUNDAY.

IT IS GRAFFITI WRITTEN BY

RADICAL ISLAMISTS, AND IT IS

FOUND THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE

EAST.

SCOTT ROSS SAT DOWN WITH

JOURNALIST LE GILLETT LELA

GILBERT TO TALK ABOUT THE

LINK BETWEEN THE PERSECUTION

OF JEWS AND THE PERSECUTION

OF CHRISTIANS.

Reporter: LELA GILBERT

IS A CALIFORNIA AUTHOR WHO

SPENDS MUCH OF HER TIME IN

JERUSALEM.

I SPOKE WITH HER OVERLOOKING

JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY, AND

HEARD WHAT SHE DISCOVERED

ABOUT RADICAL ISLAMIC PLANS

TO RID THE MIDDLE EAST OF

JEWS AND THEN CHRISTIANS.

SHE ARRIVED WITH HEZBOLLAH

IN LEBANON FOR A THREE-MONTH

VISIT AND DECIDED TO STAY.

AND NOW, OUT OF ALL OF THIS,

A BOOK.

I WAS FASCINATED BY THE

TITLE.

"SATURDAY PEOPLE, SUNDAY

PEOPLE."

DEFINE THAT SIGNIFICANCE.

IT IS GRAFFITI FROM

RADICAL ISLAMISTS THAT

APPEARS THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST.

IN THE BEST TERMS, IT SAYS

FIRST COMES SATURDAY AND

THEN COMES SUNDAY.

BUT THERE IS A PHOTO OF THE

FLAG THAT SAYS, "ON SATURDAY

WITH KILL THE JEWS; ON

SUNDAY WE KILL THE

CHRISTIANS."

THAT'S WHERE I GET THE

TITLE.

Reporter: SHE SAYS EVEN

THOUGH MANY OF THE WORLD'S

ISLAM'S ARE NOT VIOLENT,

THEIR VOICE IS DROWNED OUT

BY RADICAL MUSLIMS.

THERE ARE 1.5 BILLION

MUSLIMS, AND I DON'T THINK

EVERY ONE IS A TERRORIST.

BUT I THINK THE INFLUENCE

THEY'RE UNDER, BOTH

GOVERNMENTALLY, AND VARIOUS

MOSQUES, THERE IS AN

INFLUENCE THAT IS

INSCAPEABLE.

THERE IS A GREAT DANGER

THERE WILL BE NO CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY IN THE MIDDLE EAST

IN THE NEXT 100 YEARS, MAYBE

LESS.

WHERE ARE WE TALKING?

THE COUNTRIES THAT KICKED

THE JEWS OUT BETWEEN 1948

AND 1970, THERE ARE HARDLY

ANY JEWS LEFT IN THOSE

COUNTRIES.

ABOUT 10 COUNTRIES.

AND NOW THE CHRISTIANS ARE

GOING THROUGH THE SAME KIND

OF ABUSE, AND SIMILAR

PROGRAMS AND MENTALITY.

Reporter: TALKING

SPECIFICALLY TO THE WESTERN

CHURCH, DO THEY UNDERSTAND

THIS?

IT SEEMS THAT IT IS NOT

YET CLEAR TO THEM.

CERTAINLY IN THE UNITED

STATES AND CANADA, THEY

DON'T SEE THEM AS BROTHERS

AND SISTERS IN SOME CASES,

OR IF THEY DO, THEY FEEL SO

POWERLESS AND HELPLESS, THEY

DON'T WANT TO THINK ABOUT

IT.

IT KIND OF GETS PRAYED FOR

AND CAST ASIDE.

Reporter: I WENT TO

LOS ANGELES AND ASKED

AMERICANS WHAT THEY THINK

ABOUT THE PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS OR IF THEY EVEN

KNOW IT EXISTS.

I'M NOT AWARE OF IT, BUT

I THINK IT IS WRONG.

THAT IS REALLY SAD THAT

JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE A

CERTAIN RELIGION, YOU'RE

GETTING MARTYRED FOR IT.

WOW!

I THINK THAT'S PRETTY

DRAMATIC.

Reporter: LESS

DRAMATIC, BUT EQUAL

DESTRUCTIVE IS THE SUBTLE

WAR OF LIES THAT RADICAL

ISLAM WAGES AGAINST ISRAEL

AND THE WEST.

REPEATED LIES THAT HAVE

BEGUN TO TAKE HOLD AS

FACTS.

IT IS THE SAME TACTIC THAT

WAS EMPLOYED BY THE NAZIS.

YOU USED THE TERM IN THE

BOOK "CULTURAL INTAFATTAH."

I WAS REFERRING TO THE

TEMPLE MOUNT, BUT IT HAS

SPREAD TO GREATER ISRAEL.

BECAUSE AT LEAST CERTAIN

LEADERS IN THE MUSLIM

COMMUNITY DENY THERE WAS

EVER A TEMPLE ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT, OR THERE WAS EVER A

JEWISH ROOT IN THIS LAND.

Reporter: WAIT A

MINUTE.

THEY DENY THERE WAS EVER A

TEMPLE ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

ISN'T THAT WHY ITS CALLED

THE TEMPLE MOUNT?

THAT'S CORRECT.

EVEN IN SOME OF THE MUSLIM

LITERATURE FROM THE TURN OF

THE CENTURY, IT SPEAKS OF

THE TEMPLE ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

THIS STARTED WITH ARAFAT, AT

LEAST THE MOST PUBLIC

STATEMENT OF IT CAME FROM

ARAFAT.

WHEN HE WAS MEETING WITH

BILL CLINTON, HE SAID THERE

WAS NEVER A TEMPLE THERE.

Reporter: ARCHEOLOGICAL

EVIDENCE THROWN OUT FROM

UNDER THE TEMPLE MOUNT SHOWS

NOT ONLY WERE THERE FIRST

AND SECOND JEWISH TEMPLES AT

THE SITE, BUT AT ONE TIME

THERE WAS A CHRISTIAN

BASILICA.

TODAY NEITHER JEWS NOR

CHRISTIANS ARE ALLOWED TO

PRAY, SING, OR OPENLY

WORSHIP AT THE HOLY SITE.

Reporter: DOESN'T ISLAM

BELIEVE THIS IS WHERE

MOHAMMED ASCENDED INTO

HEAVEN ON A WHITE HORSE.

YES, THAT'S WHAT THEY

BELIEVE.

AND THAT'S THE ONLY REASON

IT IS IMPORTANT TO THEM.

IN FACT, IT IS INTERESTING.

JERUSALEM IS NOT EVEN

MENTIONED IN THE QURAN AT

ALL.

Reporter: SO WHY IS IT

SO IMPORTANT TO THE

MUSLIMS?

WELL, THE MUSLIMS HAVE

SORT OF FOUND POLITICAL

REASONS TO EMPHASIZE CERTAIN

THINGS OVER THE CENTURIES.

AND WHENEVER JERUSALEM HAS

BECOME IMPORTANT, IT HAS

BECOME IMPORTANT BECAUSE OF

THEIR OWN REGIMES, WHEREVER

THERE WERE PLACED, WHETHER

IN SYRIA OR EGYPT OR

WHEREVER.

NOW, OF COURSE, IT HAS

BECOME THE CENTER OF

EVERYTHING BECAUSE THEY WANT

TO A PANASLAMIC EMPIRE AND

THEY DO NOT WANT JEWS OR

CHRISTIANS IN IT.

THERE ARE NO JEWISH ROOTS

HERE.

IT IS ALL MADE UP, THEY

SAY.

Reporter: PERSECUTION

BY ISLAMISTS IS NOT THE ONLY

CHALLENGE FOR CHRISTIANS

HERE.

I ASKED LELA HOW CHRISTIANS

RELATE TO EACH OTHER HERE IN

THE HOLY LAND.

THERE ARE MANY CHRISTIAN

SECTS, DENOMINATIONS, ETC.,

IN THIS LAND.

HOW ARE THEY DOING WITH ONE

ANOTHER?

NOT TOO WELL.

THEY'RE NOT DOING MUCH

BETTER THAN THE ONES IN

AMERICA.

YOU HAVE CHRISTIANS ARGUING

ABOUT PROPHECY, AND

EVANGELICALS ARE ARGUING

ABOUT ALL KINDS OF THINGS,

MUCH LESS THE OLDER CHURCHES

THAT HAVE ANCIENT RISTS THAT

RIFTS THAT GO BACK INTO THE

FOURTH CENTURY.

BUT WE ALL LOOK PRETTY MUCH

THE SAME THROUGH A JIHADI

RIFLE SITE.

MAYBE WE NEED TO REMEMBER

THAT.

Reporter: ARE YOU

HOPEFUL?

I'M HOPEFUL BECAUSE OF MY

FAITH IN THE LORD AND HIS

WAY OF WORKING THINGS OUT.

POLITICALLY, I CAN'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

MY HOPE IS IN HIM.

THAT'S THE ONLY HOPE I

HAVE.

I BELIEVE IN HIM, AND HE HAS

WORKED IN MY LIFE IN SO MANY

MIRACULOUS WAYS, AND I HAVE

TO BELIEVE HE WILL WORK

AMONGST HIS PEOPLE, BRING

THEM TOGETHER, AND PROTECT

THEM.

Pat: TERRY, I FEEL LIKE

PAUL REVERE, AND WE'RE GOING

ALONG RINGING THE BELL

SAYING, THE GUYS ARE

COMING.

THEY'RE COMING.

AND PEOPLE WON'T LISTEN,

ESPECIALLY IN THE MEDIA.

I HAD A MEETING WITH YASSER

ARAFAT ONE NIGHT.

THEY PICKED ME UP IN

JERUSALEM --

Terry: I WAS THERE.

Pat: YOU WERE AT THE

CONCERT, AND THEY CAME AND

TOOK ME IN THE DARKNESS AND

WE WENT TO ONE PART OF

JERUSALEM AND SWITCHED CARS

IN THE PALESTINIAN PLACE.

AND I'M DRIVING DOWN TO

BETHLEHEM, AND WE PASSED THE

TOMB OF RACHEL.

RACHEL -- YOU REMEMBER

RACHEL?

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

Pat: AND YOU REMEMBER

WHO SHE WAS MARRIED TO?

SHE WAS MARRIED TO ISRAEL.

SHE WAS THE WIFE OF ISRAEL.

SO THE MAN WHO WAS THE

REPRESENTATIVE OF YASSER

ARAFAT WHO WAS IN THE CAR

WITH ME, HE SAID THIS IS ONE

OF OUR MOST HOLY SITES.

AND I SAID, IT IS?

AND HE SAID YES.

RACHEL WAS VERY GREATLY

HONORED.

I SAID, ARE YOU AWARE SHE

WAS THE WIFE OF ISRAEL?

Terry: DID YOU SAY THAT

TO HIM?

Pat: YES.

Terry: WHAT DID HE

SAY?

Pat: WHAT COULD HE

SAY.

WELL, THIS IS OURS, HE IS

OURS.

Terry: A LOT OF IT GETS

VERY CONVOLUTED.

Pat: HE WAS MARRIED TO

A LADY NAMED ISHA.

AND SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE

HIS FAVORITE WIFE.

HE SAID HE TRAVELLED ON A

HORSE TO HEAVEN, BUT IN THE

PROCESS HE WENT FROM MECCA

TO JERUSALEM, AND THEN WENT

BACK UP TO HEAVEN.

AND ISHA SAID, IT IS

INTERESTING THAT'S WHERE HE

WENT, BUT I REMEMBER HE WAS

IN BED WITH ME ALL NIGHT

LONG.

HE DIDN'T LEAVE.

THE WHOLE THING IS A PUT UP

FANTASY, BUT ON THE STRENGTH

OF THAT, THEY WANT HALF OF

JERUSALEM.

AND I'LL TELL YOU, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, WATCH THE

NEWSPAPERS.

THAT WILL BE THE ULTIMATE

BATTLE, THE ULTIMATE FIGHT.

WHEN THE JEWS ARE WITH THEIR

BACKS TO THE WALL, THEY'RE

GOING TO FIGHT FOR

JERUSALEM, AND THE ISLAMIC

FORCES WILL DO EVERYTHING

THEY CAN TO FIGHT.

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, THE

LORD HIMSELF WILL COME TO

DELIVER THEM.

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS IN THE

BIBLE.

Terry: UP NEXT, MEET A

MAN WHO PLANNED TO KILL 17

CHRISTIANS IN HIS

WORKPLACE.

I WOULD LOOK AT THEM, AND

THEY WOULD SMILE, AND THAT'S

ALL THEY HAD TO DO AND THAT

ACAGITATED ME.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY

THEY WERE SO HAPPY.

Terry: HEAR HOW A VOICE

LIKE THUNDER FOILED THIS

MAN'S PLOT, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: CAN YOU BELIEVE

IT, IF YOU'RE HAPPY IN THE

MIDST OF A WORLD OF

MEANNESS, PEOPLE CAN START

TO HATE YOU FOR THE REASON

THAT YOU'RE HAPPY.

WELL, THAT WAS THE CASE WITH

A MAN NAMED JOEY PEREZ.

BY THE TIME JOEY HAD TURNED

15, HE HAD ACTUALLY TRIED TO

KILL 11 OF THOSE HAPPY

PEOPLE, SHOOTING OR STABBING

THEM IN GANG-RELATED

BRAWLS.

AND LATER IN LIFE, HE

PLOTTED TO KILL 17 OF HIS

CO-WORKERS.

JOEY WAS REARED ON

VICIOUSNESS.

AND THAT WAS SPOON-FED TO

HIM FROM THE HAND OF HIS OWN

FATHER.

I WROTE A POEM THAT SAYS

AT THE AGE OF 12, I WAS

DEMON POSSESSED, I PLEADED

TO GOD, PLEASE PUT ME TO

REST.

WITH HOLES IN MY SOLES.

Reporter: JOEY PERREZ

GREW UP IN THE SHADOW OF HIS

FATHER'S CRIMES.

WHEN I SAW HOW PEOPLE

RESPECTED MY FATHER, I

WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE HIM.

Reporter: HIS FATHER

DESPISED JOEY'S BEHAVIOR AND

DISCIPLINED SEVERELY.

HE CHAINED ME UP BY MY

NECK AND STUCK ME IN THE

BASEMENT.

WHEN I WAS IN THAT BASEMENT,

CHAINED UP BY MY NECK, I

STARTED HEARING VOICES AND I

SAID, I'M GOING TO KILL MY

FATHER BY THE TIME I'M 18.

FROM THAT AGE ON, I STARTED

COMMITTING REAL SERIOUS

CRIMES.

Reporter: JUVENILE TIME

AND TIME SERVED IN A

GOVERNMENT CORRECTIONAL

PROGRAM DID NOTHING TO STOP

HIM.

BY THE AGE OF 16, HE HAD

RISEN TO POWER IN A GANG.

I WAS SO FULL OF ANGER

AND HATRED, BY THE TIME I

WAS 15, PEOPLE WERE

MURDERED.

ONE DAY I WAS STABBED 17

TIMES.

THREE ON MY ARM, FOUR ON MY

NECK, 10 ON MY BACK.

THREE GUYS STABBED ME 17

TIMES FROM ANOTHER GANG.

Reporter: BUT BEING A

GANG LEADER OFFERED HIM NO

SOLACE.

EVERYTHING I DID, IT

HAUNTED ME DAY AND NIGHT.

I NEVER HAD PEACE.

IN MY DREAMS, PEOPLE WERE

SHOOTING ME AND STABBING

ME.

I CRIED OUT.

I WANTED TO CHANGE, BUT I

ALREADY HAD THE THOUGHT

THERE WAS NO HOPE.

I WANTED TO KILL MYSELF SO

MANY TIMES.

THE ONLY WAY I THOUGHT I

COULD FIND PEACE WAS IN THE

GRAVE, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.

Reporter: BY THE LATEST

'70s, JOEY OPERATION

EXPANDED INTO DRUG DEALING.

I'M MAKING A LOT OF

MONEY, I'VE GOT MY YOUNGER

SISTER SELLING DRUGS, I'VE

GOT FRIENDS OF MY SELLING

DRUGS, BUT I NEVER HAD

PEACE.

Reporter: IN ORDER TO

AVOID THE SUSPICION OF THE

POLICE, HE WORKED AT AN AUTO

WORKS WAREHOUSE.

AFTER A SHORT TIME THERE, HE

MET COZI, ONE OF HIS

SUPERVISORS.

HE SAID, JOE, DO YOU KNOW

THAT CHRIST DIED FOR YOUR

SINS.

I SAID, ARE YOU ONE OF

THOSE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE?

I DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD, I

DON'T BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL.

Reporter: GOZI

CONSTANTLY ENCOURAGED HIM.

AND HE AND OTHER WORKERS

PRAYED FOR HIM.

I WOULD LOOK AT THEM AND

THEY WOULD SMILE ON ME, AND

THAT WOULD AGGRAVATE ME.

THEY HAD THIS PEACE THAT I

DIDN'T HAVE.

I WANTED WHAT THEY HAD.

Reporter: JOEY'S

BITTERNESS TOWARDS THEM

GREW.

ONE DAY AT HIS WORK STATION,

HE PLOTTED TO KILL 17

WORKERS.

ALL OF A SUDDEN IT WAS

LIKE THUNDER.

I HEAR A VOICE CALLING ME

FROM ABOVE.

JOSE.

AND MY BODY JERKED.

THEY CALLED ME A SECOND

TIME, AND WHEN THEY CALLED

ME THE THIRD TIME, IT WAS

LIKE A CONCRETE WALL, THAT

TURNED INTO A MOVIE SCENE.

EVERY TIME HE SPOKE, I WOULD

KEEP SHAKING.

HE WOULD SHOW ME MY LIFE,

WHEN I WAS SHOT AND STABBED,

AND WHY I WAS NEVER KILLED.

Reporter: JOEY LEFT

WORK, BUT LATER THAT DAY HE

WENT TO A STREET CORNER TO

CONFRONT ONE OF HIS DRUG

DEALERS THAT OWED HIM

MONEY.

HE WAS SCREAMING AND

BEGGING MERCY FOR HIS LIFE.

I'M THINKING IT IS THE COPS,

AND WHEN I TURNED AROUND, IT

WAS A LITTLE OLD LADY

STANDING THERE.

AND SHE SAID I WAS IN MY

CHURCH PRAYING, AND GOD SAID

TO COME TO THIS CORNER, AND

THERE IS A MAN HERE, AND HE

CALLED HIM BY NAME, AND HE

IS GOING TO USE HIM FOR HIS

GLORY.

AND THAT MAN IS YOU.

SHE SAID, JESUS LOVES YOU.

AND I FLEW BACK.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN SHE

SAID, JESUS LOVES YOU, AND I

FLEW BACK AGAIN.

I FORGOT ABOUT KILLING IZZY,

AND THAT NIGHT I WENT HOME I

WAS SO CONFUSED I COULDN'T

EVEN SLEEP.

Reporter: BACK AT WORK,

A CO-WORKER SAW THAT JOEY

WAS TROUBLED AND INVITED HIM

TO A CHURCH SERVICE THAT

NIGHT.

I SAID IF I DON'T RECEIVE

JESUS THAT NIGHT, I'M GOING

TO COME BACK AND KILL ALL OF

YOU CHRISTIANS TOMORROW.

AND HE LOOKED AT ME AND

SAID, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

KILL NOBODY.

TODAY YOU'RE GOING TO

RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST.

Reporter: ON THE WAY TO

THE SERVICE, JOEY CRIED OUT

FOR A SIGN.

I SAID I WANT YOU TO SAY

THERE IS A BLESSING FOR

JOSE, AND IF YOU SAY THIS,

NOTHING IS GOING TO STOP

ME.

Reporter: AT THE

SERVICE, JOEY GREW RESTLESS

AND DECIDED TO LEAVE.

THAT YOUNG GIRL STOPPED

THE MESSAGE, AND SHE YELLED

OUT AND SAID, TONIGHT THERE

IS A MAN HERE WITH A

BLESSING FROM THE LORD.

AND GOD IS GOING TO USE THAT

MAN FOR HIS GLORY, AND

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WILL BE SAVED.

AND SHE SAID THAT YOUNG

MAN'S NAME IS JOSE.

AND WHEN SHE SAID THAT, I

TURNED AROUND.

AND SHE SAID GOD CALLED YOU

THIS WAY, AND NO RAIN, NO

FIRE, NO DEVIL, NOTHING WAS

GOING TO STOP YOU.

I STARTED RUNNING TO THE

ALTER.

WHEN I GOT THERE, MY BODY

WAS SHAKING.

I COULD FEEL SOMEBODY INSIDE

OF ME.

I KEPT SHAKING.

I CRIED OUT, GOD, I AM A

SINGER.

SINNER.

AND I STARTED CRYING OUT,

I'M FREE!

I'M FREE!

Reporter: JOEY FINALLY

GOT THE PEACE.

I SLEPT SO GOOD I WAS

LATE FOR WORK.

AND WHEN I GOT THERE, THEY

SAID YOUR WHOLE FACE IS

GLOWING.

THAT SAME DAY I WAS FILLED

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

NEVER DID DRUGS, NEVER WENT

BACK FOR THE DRUG MONEY.

Reporter: TODAY JOEY

PASTORS A CHURCH.

HIS HEART REMAINS IN THE

STREETS TO REACH PEOPLE WITH

GOD'S LOVE.

I LOVE WHAT I DO.

I CAN'T TALK ABOUT NOTHING

BUT JESUS NO MATTER WHERE I

GO.

HE IS EVERYTHING TO ME

BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS ME

BETTER THAN MYSELF.

HE HAS GIVEN ME A PEACE I

NEVER HAD IN MY LIFE.

JESUS CALLED ME THREE TIMES

BY MY NAME, AND HE TOOK AWAY

MY SHAME.

IT STARTED WITH THE JOURNEY

WITH THE LORD WHO LOVED ME.

I COULD HAVE HAD ALL OF THIS

WHEN I WAS JUST A LITTLE

BOY.

Pat: WHEW!

PEACE, LOVE, AND JOY.

JOEY PEREZ, WHAT A STORY.

GOD KNEW HIM.

HE WAS CREATED.

THAT'S WHAT GOD SAID TO

JEREMIAH, THE PROPHET

BEFORE, I FORMED YOU IN THE

WOMB, AND I KNEW YOU, AND I

CALLED YOU TO BE A PROPHET.

GOD HAS A CALL IN YOUR LIFE

THAT YOU CANNOT RESIST.

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FAR

YOU RUN, OR HOW MEAN YOU

ARE, OR HOW MANY THINGS HAVE

BEEN DONE TO YOU.

GOD'S CALL IS ON YOUR LIFE.

JOEY PEREZ FINALLY HEARD

THAT VOICE, AND SUDDENLY

THERE WAS PEACE.

THERE IS NO PEACE, SAYETH MY

GOD, FOR THE WICKED.

THE WICKED ARE LIKE A

TROUBLED SEA.

YOU'RE TOSSED TO AND FRO,

AND YOU'RE ALWAYS SEEKING,

ALWAYS HURTING.

YOU'LL NEVER HAVE ANY PEACE

UNTIL YOU REST IN JESUS

CHRIST.

GREAT PEACE HAVE THEY THAT

LOVE THY LORD.

AND NOTHING SHALL OFFEND

THEM.

JESUS CHRIST SAID, MY PEACE

I'M GOING TO LEAVE WITH

YOU.

NOT LIKE THE WORLD GIVES IT

TO YOU.

I'M GOING TO GIVE IT TO YOU

THE WAY I HAVE IT.

THE PEACE OF GOD.

ARE YOU TROUBLED?

CAN'T YOU SLEEP?

YOU HAVE A NERVOUS PROBLEM,

AND YOU'RE TAKING PROZAC OR

SOME KIND OF TRANQUILIZER TO

CALM YOUR LIFE DOWN?

WOULD YOU LIKE PEACE?

REAL, HONEST PEACE?

LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO JOEY.

HE TURNED HIS LIFE OVER TO

CHRIST, AND LOOK WHAT

HAPPENED.

HE COULD SLEEP.

HE COULD REST.

HE COULD REST IN THE LORD,

AND THEN HE HAD A PURPOSE IN

LIFE.

DON'T GO ANYWHERE RIGHT

NOW.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR

HEAD.

THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE LOOKING

FOR THE PEACE OF GOD.

PRAY WITH ME NOW.

SAY THESE WORDS.

MEAN THEM IN YOUR HEART AND

PRAY THEM WITH YOUR MOUTH.

JUST WHAT I SAY, YOU SAY AND

BELIEVE THEM.

THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT.

JESUS, I WANT PEACE.

I WANT THE PEACE OF GOD.

YOU KNOW I'M LIKE THE STORMY

SEA, TOSSED TO AND FRO.

FRO.

> BUT, LORD, I WANT YOUR

PEACE.

AND RIGHT NOW, I KNOW THAT

YOU DIED THAT I MIGHT HAVE A

PLACE IN HEAVEN.

AND SO, JESUS, I TURN AWAY

FROM YOU.

YOU -- TO YOU, I TURN AWAY

FROM A TROUBLED LIFE, I TURN

AWAY FROM REBEL JON,

REBELLION, LORD, AND RIGHT

NOW I GIVE YOU MY HEART, AND

I THANK YOU.

I THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE

COME IN, AND YOU WILL BE THE

LORD OF MY LIFE FROM THIS

MOMENT ON.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING.

IT HAS BEEN A FEW YEARS NOW

THAT I WENT INTO OUR AUDIO

ROOM, AND I MADE A VERY

IMPORTANT COMPACT DISC.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT IS 73 MINUTES OF REALLY

IMPORTANT TEACHING ABOUT

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FIND

THE LORD.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE

AN EXCHANGED LIFE.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE LORD

COMES BACK AGAIN.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU COMMIT A

SIN, WHAT DO YOU DO?

IT IS VERY INTENSE.

AND I THINK IT WILL BE A

BLESSING.

WE ALSO HAVE A BOOKLET HERE

CALLED "A NEW DAY," WHICH

HAS VERSES THAT COME OUT OF

THIS SAME TEACHING.

YOU CAN READ ABOUT IT IF YOU

WANT TO.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU FREE

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME.

JUST GO TO THE PHONES AND

SAY I PRAYED WITH PAT AND

GAVE MY HEART TO THE LORD.

IT'S 1-800-759-0700.

PEOPLE ARE AT THE PHONES.

THEY LOVE YOU.

DON'T BE EMBARRASSED.

DON'T BE AFRAID.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I PRAYED

WITH PAT.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE.

BUT YOU NEED TO CONFESS WHAT

YOU'VE DONE.

GET ESTABLISHED IN THE

LORD.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND WE'RE GOING TO

CONTINUE WITH MORE EXCITING

THINGS.

AND HERE IS OUR CO-HOSTESS,

TERRY MEEUWSEN.

Terry: JIM SAYS, "I

READ AN ARTICLE THAT SAYS

ONLY MARRIED PEOPLE CAN

ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

I'M WORRIED BECAUSE I FEAR

I'M DESTINED TO BE SINGLE.

DOES THIS MEAN I'M GOING TO

HELL?"

DON'T WORRY, JIM, WE'RE

GOING TO ANSWER YOUR

QUESTION, AND THAT'S COMING

UP.

Lee: AND WACHOVIA

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

EGYPTIAN AUTHORS HAVE

ORDERED THAT MOHAMMED MORSI

CONTINUE TO BE CONTAINED

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICES.

HE WAS ACCUSED OF CARRYING

OUT A MASSIVE JAIL BREAK OF

DOZENS OF MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

LEADERS IN 2011.

MORSI BEING ONE OF THEM.

MORSI HAS ALREADY BEEN HELD

FOR 15 DAYS WHILE HE IS

BEING INVESTIGATED.

A NEW CHAPEL HAS BEEN ADDED

TO THE CHILDREN'S HOME IN

HAITI SUPPORTED BY

"OPERATION BLESSING."

O.B. PRESIDENT BILL HOREN

WAS ON SITE FOR THE RECENT

DEDICATION.

IT IS CALLED CHAPEL SAINT

ROSE OF LIMA.

PART OF THE CHILDREN'S HOME

IN HAITI.

THE CHAPEL HAS EIGHT

WINDOWS, FEATURING ORIGINAL

ARTWORK.

"OPERATION BLESSING" TEAMS

PROVIDED THE LABOR AND

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT TO

BUILD THAT CHAPEL.

THE CHILDREN'S HOME INCLUDES

A 30-ROOM DORMITORY, DINING

HALL AND BAKERY, LIBRARY, AS

WELL AS AN OUTDOOR PLAY

AREA.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING" BY

GOING TO ITS WEBSITE AT

OB.ORG.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

MONDAY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

UNDER ATTACK.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY A

GROWING THREAT.

AND CHRISTIANS ARE IN THE

CROSS HAIRS.

THE GENERAL OF THE ACLU

COLLUDED TO SUE HER.

WHY SOME ARE BEING

TARGETED FOR BELIEVING THE

BIBLE.

AND THEN, HER KIDS WERE

STOLEN, SO SHE TURNED TO

CRACK.

AND I USED IT EVERY

CHANCE I GOT.

HOW SHE BROKE THE CYCLE.

MONDAY ON "THE 700 CLUB."

Terry: WELL, IT IS TIME

TO "BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

OUR FIRST QUESTION IS FROM

JIM.

AND, PAT, JIM SAYS, "I READ

AN ARTICLE WHICH SAID THAT

ONLY MARRIED PEOPLE CAN

ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

WHILE I CANNOT FIND THIS

ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE, I'M

WORRIED NOW BECAUSE I'M

DESTINED TO BE SINGLE

FOREVER.

EVEN THOUGH I BELIEVE IN

JESUS AS MY SAVIOR, DOES

THIS MEAN I'M GOING TO

HELL?"

Pat: YOU KNOW, IF THAT

WASN'T SO RIDICULOUS, I

WOULD FEEL SORRY FOR YOU.

I AM SORRY ABOUT THE JUNK

THAT IS BEING PASSED

AROUND --

Terry: YEAH.

THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

Pat: AS A MATTER OF

FACT, THE BIBLE HAS IT JUST

THE OTHER WAY.

IT SAYS IF YOU GET MARRIED,

YOU'RE NOT SINNING.

BUT SOME PEOPLE HAVE A

WONDERFUL GIFT TO BE

CELIBATE, AND IT I THAT'S

GOOD.

OF COURSE, TERRY AND I ARE

MARRIED.

AND THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID, I

WISH OTHERS WERE LIKE ME,

BUT NOT EVERYBODY HAS THIS

GIFT.

APOSTLE PAUL SAID I COULD

LEAD AROUND A WIFE LIKE

PETER AND THE OTHER

APOSTLES, BUT I DON'T DO

IT.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: WALT SAYS, "IS

IT IMPORTANT FOR ME TO

BELONG TO SOME CHURCH

ORGANIZATION IN ORDER THE BE

SAVED.

I'VE ALWAYS BELIEVED, SINCE

I WAS YOUNG, THAT JESUS DOES

NOT REQUIRE US TO BELONG TO

A SPECIFIC DENOMINATION IN

ORDER TO RECEIVE HIS

SALVATION.

ALSO, I LIKE TO READ THE NEW

TESTAMENT, AND NOT THE OLD

TESTAMENT, IS THERE ANYTHING

WRONG WITH THAT?"

Pat: THE SECOND

QUESTION, YES, THERE IS

SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT

BECAUSE YOU LOSE THE

CONTINUITY.

YOU SEE THE GLORIOUS WORK OF

GOD THROUGH HISTORY.

WHEN YOU READ THE OLD

TESTAMENT, YOU REALIZE JESUS

IS THE FULFILLMENT OF OLD

TESTAMENT PROPHECIES.

AND YOU GET A FLAVOR OF WHAT

GOD'S DEALING WITH HIS

PEOPLE IS ALL ABOUT.

IT WILL ENRICH YOUR LIFE.

SO THE BIBLE SAYS ALL

SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY

INSPIRATION OF GOD.

SO THAT'S THE INFORMATION.

NOW, THE SECOND THING IS --

I REMEMBER AS A LITTLE

CHILD, THEY HAD THE PREACHER

FOR LUNCH, AND THE LITTLE

KID SAID, PASTOR, WHAT

ABOMINATION DO YOU BELONG

TO?

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: THAT'S GREAT.

Pat: WE HAVE HUNDREDS

OF DENOM MATIONS.

NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BELONG

TO ONE OF THEM TO GET

SAVED.

YOU'RE SAVED BY FAITH IN

JESUS CHRIST.

THEN THE BIBLE SAYS DON'T

FORSAKE THE ASSEMBLY OF

YOURSELF TOGETHER.

BUT IT DOESN'T SAY YOU HAVE

TO BE A PENTECOSTAL OR

CATHOLIC OR LUTHERAN OR ANY

OF THESE OTHERS.

Terry: THIS IS RICHARD

WHO SAYS, "IS THE MASON'S

DOCTRINE COMPATIBLE WITH A

CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE.

CAN SOMEONE PRACTICE THE

MATION SO MASON FAITH AND

BE A GOOD CHRISTIAN?"

Pat: I DON'T BELIEVE

YOU CAN.

SOMEBODY QUESTIONED PIKE,

AND HE WAS A 33rd MASON,

AND HE WROTE A BOOK AND IT

HAD SOME PRETTY HORRIBLE

STUFF IN THERE.

THEY ARE TEACHING, AS I

UNDERSTAND IT, THAT THE

DEVIL IS GOD, AND THAT THE

J JEHOVAH OF THE OLD

TESTAMENT IS SATAN.

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: THERE IS SOME BAD

STUFF IN THERE.

IT IS ALL VERY SECRET WHEN

YOU GET HIGHER UP THE

LADDER.

AND THEY HAD SOMETHING IN

THE TIME OF THE FRENCH

REVOLUTION CALLED

ILLUMINATED MASONIC BELIEF,

AND IT WAS CLEARLY

ANTI-CHRISTIAN.

AND SOME OF THOSE LED TO THE

RUSSIAN REVOLUTION AND THE

FRENCH REVOLUTION.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE, IN MY

OPINION, THAT YOU CAN BE A

PRACTICING UP THE LINE MASON

AND STILL BE A BORN AGAIN

CHRISTIAN.

Terry: DAMIAN SAYS, "MY

MOTHER SUFFERED FROM A

STROKE AND DIABETES SEVEN

MONTHS AGO.

SHE IS A BORN AGAIN

CHRISTIAN.

I SAT DOWN AND ASKED HER IF

HER STROKE HAD TAKEN AWAY

HER ABILITY TO PRAY FOR HER

HEALING, AND SHE SAID YES.

PAT, WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP

HER GET BACK HER ABILITY TO

PRAY AGAIN?"

Pat: JUST SAY, LOOK,

MOTHER, DON'T SAY ANYTHING

OR DO ANYTHING, AND JUST

RECEIVE.

AND I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

AND YOU DO THE PRAYING AND

LET THE LORD COME AND FILL

THIS LADY WITH THE SPIRIT.

THE EASIEST PERSON TO PRAY

FOR IS A LITTLE BABY.

THEY CAN'T PRAY, BUT THEY

CAN'T FIGHT YOU.

YOU DON'T WANT SOMEBODY WHO

IS BABBLING AWAY.

YOU WANT TO PRAY FOR THEM.

THE FACT SHE CAN'T PRAY,

THAT IS NOT GOING TO HURT

ANYTHING.

JUST TELL HER, JUST

RECEIVE.

JUST RECEIVE.

LIKE YOU'RE DRINKING WATER.

JUST RECEIVE.

ONE LAST QUESTION.

Terry: A VIEWER WRITES

AND SAYS, "WHEN I TOLD YOUR

PRAYER LINE OF MY HUSBAND'S

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST

ME, AND HOW EACH OF MY

CHILDREN HAD PROBLEMS WITH

MARRIAGE AND RELIGION, HE

PRAYED FOR ME FOR A

GENERATIONAL CURSE TO BE

LIFTED.

THIS WORRIES US.

IS THIS GENERATIONAL CURSE

APPLICABLE.

IF HIS FATHER REFUSES TO

REPENT, DOES IT HURT MY

SON?

WHAT BIBLE VERSES DO YOU

HAVE REGARDING THIS?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW YOUR

SITUATION.

THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A

GENERATIONAL CURSE.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF SOMEBODY UP

THE LINE'S GRANDFATHER WAS

INVOLVED IN WITCHCRAFT,

THERE IS A POSSIBLE YOU MAY

BE -- THE SINS OF THE FATHER

MAY BE DEPOSITED ON THE

THIRD AND FOURTH

GENERATION.

BUT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW WITH

GENETIC NFGHT INFORMATION

THAT IS AVAILABLE TO US,

THAT THE WAY WE LIVE CAN

ACTUALLY AFFECT OUR GENES.

THEY'RE NOW SAYING THE WAY

YOU LIVE CAN AFFECT THE

GENES OF YOUR CHILDREN.

IF YOU'VE GOT JOY AND PEACE

AND YOU DON'T DRIN DUNK AND

SO FORTH, IT WILL CARRY

FORTH TO THE NEXT

GENERATION.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR

PROBLEM IS.

BUT CERTAINLY IF THERE IS A

PROCLIVITY TO CRIME AND EVIL

IN ONE GENERATION, IT WILL

GO TO THE OTHER.

WHETHER WE CALL THAT A

GENERATIONAL CURSE OR JUST

GENETICS, IT'S THERE.

BUT WE CAN AFFECT THIS.

DR. ROYSON OF THE CLEVELAND

CLINIC WAS HERE, AND HE IS A

WONDERFUL MEDICAL MAN.

AND HE TOLD ME SOMETHING

THAT SHOCKED ME.

HE SAID IF A WOMAN WHO IS

PREGNANT WILL EAT BROCCOLI

THREE TIMES A WEEK, IT WILL

ABSOLUTELY IMMUNIZE HER

CHILD AGAINST CANCER.

DR. ROYSON, CLEVELAND

CLINIC.

HE SAID IT WILL IMMUNIZE

YOUR FUTURE CHILD.

THAT'S KIND OF IMPORTANT.

Terry: AMAZING.

Pat: SO WHAT WE DO AS

PREGNANT AND BEYOND CAN MAKE

A BIG DIFFERENCE.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR

QUESTIONS.

I HOPE I CAN HELP YOU.

IT IS MY GREAT PRIVILEGE TO

BE ABLE TO DO SO.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, MEET A

HUSBAND AND WIFE WITH SEVEN

CHILDREN AND TWO MORTGAGES.

WE WERE AT A PLACE WHERE

WE WERE TRYING TO AVOID

FORECLOSURE BY TRYING TO DO

WHATEVER WE COULD TO MAKE

THE PAYMENTS.

WE ACTUALLY SOLD BOTH OF

OUR CARS LITERALLY TO PAY

THE MORTGAGE.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

COUPLE GETS A FINANCIAL

BREAKTHROUGH WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: WHEN STEVE AND

SANDRA BOUGHT A NEW HOUSE,

THEY THOUGHT THEIR OLD ONE

WOULD SELL QUICKLY.

AND THE THEN THE HOUSING

MARKET CRASHED AND THEY

FOUND THEMSELVES WITH TWO

HOUSES AND SEVEN CHILDREN.

Reporter: RAISING SEVEN

CHILDREN ISN'T EASY, BUT

STEVE AND SANDRA SAY IT IS

WORTH IT.

WE WERE HELPING TO CHANGE

THE DESTINY OF THE COURSE OF

A CHILD'S LIFE.

THEY BECAME THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING FOR US.

WE GOT OUR FIRST FOUR

WITHIN 15 MONTHS.

WE SAY WE WENT FROM TWO TO

FOUR IN 15 MONTHS.

Reporter: THE YOUNG

FAMILY QUICKLY OUTDREW

OUTGREW THEIR MOM HOME.

THE HOUSING MARKET WAS

BOOMING, SO THEY WEREN'T

CONCERNED.

WE ASSUMED WE WOULD SELL

THE HOUSE QUICKLY, AND WE

WOULD MAKE A LOT OF MONEY ON

IT, AND HAVE THIS BIG HOME

AND BE DEBT-FREE FROM A

MORTGAGE IN A FEW YEARS.

IT WAS THIS WONDERFUL MASTER

PLAN THAT DID NOT WORK OUT

AT ALL.

Reporter: THAT'S

BECAUSE OF HOUSING MARKET

CRASHED.

THEY WERE UNABLE TO SELL

THEIR FIRST HOME, AND NOW

THEY WERE STUCK WITH TWO

MORTGAGES.

THEY QUICKLY BURNED THROUGH

THEIR SAVINGS.

NOW WE'RE AT A PLACE

WHERE WE WERE TRYING TO

AVOID FORECLOSURE BY TRYING

TO DO WHATEVER WE COULD TO

MAKE THE PAYMENTS.

THAT MEANT WE WOULD SELL

ANYTHING WE COULD FIND

AROUND THE HOUSE THAT WE

WEREN'T USING OR DIDN'T

NEED.

WE ACTUALLY SOLD BOTH OF

OUR CARS LITERALLY TO PAY

THE MORTGAGE.

Reporter: THINGS WERE

TIGHT FOR THE FAMILY AND

THEY HAD TO CUT BACK ON

EVERYTHING, EXCEPT WHAT THEY

GAVE TO THEIR CHURCH AND

CBN.

WE WOULD NEVER CUT BACK

ON TITHES.

THAT IS ABSOLUTELY SOMETHING

YOU JUST HAVE TO DO.

Reporter: AT ONE POINT

THEY EVEN INCREASED THEIR

GIVING TO CBN.

THE LORD SPOKE TO ME

ACTUALLY DURING A TELETHON

THAT CBN WAS DOING TO

INCREASE OUR MONTHLY

GIVING.

IN THE NATURAL, IT WAS NUTS,

ABSOLUTELY NUTS, BUT WE DID

IT.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

IT WAS A LONG, TOUGH

JOURNEY, THEY TRUSTED GOD

WOULD PROVIDE, AND HE DID.

WE NEVER REALLY WENT

WITHOUT.

WE NEVER WENT WITHOUT A MEAL

OR WITHOUT CLOTHES OR

WITHOUT A ROOF OVER OUR

HEAD.

GOD ALWAYS PROVIDED.

Reporter: THEY SAY HE

EVEN REPLACED THEIR CARS

WITH PASSENGER VANS.

TWO DIFFERENT TIMES IN

FOUR MONTHS, TWO PEOPLE

WALKED UP TO ME WITH KEYS IN

THEIR HAND.

Reporter: FINALLY A

BREAKTHROUGH, THEY SOLD

THEIR SECOND HOUSE AND

WALKED AWAY FREE AND CLEAR.

IT WAS PEACE THAT WE

HADN'T EXPERIENCED FOR FOUR

YEARS.

IT WAS A NEW START.

IT WAS FRESH.

Reporter: NOW WITH ONLY

ONE MORTGAGE, STEVE AND

SANDRA PAID OFF THEIR

DEBTS.

THEY EVENTUALLY ADOPTED

THREE MORE CHILDREN.

THEY LOVE CBN, TOO.

ESPECIALLY "SUPERBOOK."

THE FAMILY HAS SINCE MOVED

INTO A HOME BIG ENOUGH FORññ

ALL OF THEM.

AND THEY WERE ABLE TO KEEP

THEIR FIRST HOME AS A RENTAL

PROPERTY.

THEY BELIEVE IT IS BECAUSE

THEY WERE FAITHFUL TO GIVE.

WE LEARNED THAT HE WAS

OUR SOURCE, AND HE ALONE.

NOT OUR JOBS.

NOT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE WERE

ABLE TO GIVE US.

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE

WRESTLING WITH THIS WHOLE DO

I REALLY NEED TO TITHE?

DO I REALLY NEED TO GIVE?

I CAN'T AFFORD TO GIVE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW ELSE TO

EXPLAIN IT, BUT TO JUST TEST

THE LORD.

YOU CANNOT OUT-GIVE GOD.

Terry: TEACHING

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES THAT

CHANGE LIVES, AND REACHING

OUT AND TOUCHING PEOPLE HERE

AT HOME AND AROUND THE

WORLD, THESE ARE JUST SOME

OF THE THINGS THAT CBN IS

DOING EVERY DAY.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB" AND BE A

PART OF THAT, 65 CENTS A

DAY, $20 A MONTH MAKES YOU A

"700 CLUB" MEMBER.

WHEN YOU CALL AND SAY YOU

WANT TO JOIN, WE'RE GOING TO

SEND YOU A TEACHING THAT

WILL BLESS YOU.

Pat: TERRY, IF YOU

DEFEND TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN

AND CHILDREN, YOU OUGHT TO

BE APPLAUDED, RIGHT?

Terry: YES.

Pat: YOU MAY BE

PERSECUTED OR EVEN

PROSECUTED IN THE GOOD OLD

U.S.

DON'T MISS THAT STORY ON

MONDAY.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JOHN 2: "WHATEVER

HE SAYS TO YOU, DO IT."

WE'LL SEE YOU ON MONDAY.

BYE-BYE.
