LOWER YOUR CHOLESTEROL,

LOWER YOUR RISK OF HEART

DISEASE, RIGHT?

WRONG.

HEAR WHY YOU MAY BE DOING

YOUR BODY MORE HARM THAN

GOOD.

> PLUS, SHE HAD A QUESTION

FOR GOD.

I SAID, WHAT'S GOING ON,

LAURIE.

Wendy: AND SHE GOT THE

ANSWER FACE TO FACE.

ASK FOR ALL THINGS SMALL

AND LARGE.

Wendy: ONE WOMAN'S TRIP

THROUGH HEAVEN.

TELL PEOPLE ALL THAT I'VE

SHOWED YOU.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

YOU KNOW, WE'VE BEEN WARNING

ABOUT THOSE STATIN DRUGS,

CRESTOR, LIPITOR -- ALL

THOSE DRUGS.

A RESEARCH STUDY IN FINLAND

INDICATED THAT THOSE WHO

TOOK STATINS WERE 47% MORE

LIKELY TO DEVELOP TYPE 2

DIABETES.

AND IF THAT HOLDS, I DARE

SAY THE CLASS-ACTION LAWYERS

ARE GOING TO BE LOCKING

THEIR CHOPS.

THIS WILL BE LIKE A FEAST

BEFORE A HUNGRY MAN.

AND THEY WILL GO AFTER THOSE

GUYS.

AND OH, MAN, THE PAYDAY WILL

BE HUGE.

WELL, TO SHIFT A LITTLE BIT,

IT'S LIKE A HORROR MOVIE

FROM HOLLYWOOD.

THE WINTER THAT WOULDN'T

DIE.

STILL ANOTHER STORM IS

SWEEPING FROM TEXAS TO NEW

ENGLAND, BRINGING SNOW AND

ICE, ALONG WITH FLOODING AND

FREEZING RAIN.

Terry: 100 MILLION

AMERICANS ARE IN THE PATH OF

THAT STORM WITH AIRLINES

CANCELLING THOUSANDS OF

FLIGHTS.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Mark: IT HAS BEEN A

WINTER FOR THE RECORD BOOKS

IN THE EAST.

IN BOSTON, THEY NEED A

LITTLE MORE THAN TWO INCHES

OF SNOWFALL TO BREAK THE

ALL-TIME RECORD THERE, WHICH

IS 107.6 INCHES, NEARLY NINE

FEET OF SNOW.

IN ALL OF THAT SNOW IS

HAVING AN IMPACTMENT, IN THE

LAST TWO DAYS, THE EMERGENCY

MANAGEMENT AGENCY RECEIVED

28 NOW REPORTS OF BUILDING

COLLAPSES OR STRUCTURAL

FAILURES BECAUSE OF SNOW.

AND WINTER IS NOT OVER YET.

THITHIS COLLAPSED GARAGE

TRAPPED FOUR CARS.

I'VE BEEN IN BUSINESS 40

YEARS, AND I'VE NEVER BEEN

AS BUSY.

Mark: AF AT LEAST 24

STATE ARE UNDER WINTER

WEATHER ALERTS.

THOUSANDS OF FLIGHTS HAVE

BEEN CANCELLED.

A PASSENGER IN DALLAS TOOK

THESE PICTURES, SHOWING THE

ICE THAT LEFT HER PLANE

STRANDED ON THE TARMAC FOR

HOURS.

CHECK OUT THIS CAR IN DENTON

COUNTY, TEXAS.

IT HANGS OVER A BRIDGE.

THE DRIVER COUNTS HIS

BLESSINGS.

IF THERE WAS ANY OTHER

WAY THAT THIS WOULD HAVE

HAPPENED, I WOULDN'T BE

HERE.

I'M VERY BLESSED.

Mark: AT LEAST SIX

STATES BRACE FOR ANOTHER

SNOW EMERGENCY.

NEARLY A HALF MILLION

STUDENTS COULD BE AFFECTED

BY SCHOOL CLOSINGS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY, AND THAT

INCLUDES WASHINGTON, D.C.,

WHERE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

IS ALSO CLOSED.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU SEE, THERE IS

NO WIND THAT DOESN'T BLOW

SOME BLESSING.

WASHINGTON IS CLOSED.

SO YOU CAN REST EASY.

FOR ONE DAY THEY WON'T BE

HURTING YOU.

THAT'S A GOOD THING.

BUT OUR HEART GOES OUT TO

THE PEOPLE IN BOSTON.

DEAR ME, IT HAS BEEN A

HORRIBLE THING.

WHO KNOWS WHAT THIS HAS DONE

TO SMALL BUSINESSES, WHAT IT

DOES TO THE WORKERS, AND

WHAT IT DOES TO THE COST OF

MUNICIPAL SERVICES IN NEW

ENGLAND.

IT HAS JUST BEEN AWFUL.

> WELL, THE DEMOCRATS ARE

SAYING, IS THERE SOME

ALTERNATIVE TO HILLARY

CLINTON?

THE 2016 CAMPAIGN HASN'T

EVEN STARTED YET, BUT

HILLARY CLINTON IS ALREADY

IN THE MIDDLE OF A POTENTIAL

SCANDAL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: FORMER SECRETARY

CLINTON IS URGING THE STATE

DEPARTMENT TO ISSUE THE

E-MAILS FROM THE PRIVATE

ACCOUNT SHE USED.

SHE TWEETED WEDNESDAY SAYING

SHE WANTS HER E-MAIL OPEN TO

THE PUBLIC.

THE POSSIBLE DEMOCRATIC

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IS

UNDER FIRE FOR RUNNING HER

OWN PRIVATE E-MAIL SERVER,

INSTEAD OF USING AN OFFICIAL

STATE DEPARTMENT ACCOUNT.

CLINTON'S PRIVATE E-MAIL

SYSTEM PUT SENSITIVE DATA AT

RISK.

THEY BELIEVE SHE COULD HAVE

BEEN HACKED.

AND NOW A HOUSE COMMITTEE

INVESTIGATING THE TERRORIST

ATTACK AGAINST THE U.S.

CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI HAS

ISSUED SUBPOENAS FOR HER

E-MAILS.

YOU DO NOT NEED A LAW

DEGREE TO HAVE AN

UNDERSTANDING OF HOW

TROUBLING THIS IS.

THERE ARE CHAIN OF CUSTODY

ISSUES.

THERE ARE PRESERVATION OF

MATERIALS AND DOCUMENTS

ISSUES.

ONE SHOULD ALSO BE CONCERNED

ABOUT THE NATIONAL SECURITY

IMPLICATIONS OF FORMER

SECRETARY CLINTON USING

EXCLUSIVELY PERSONAL E-MAIL

ACCOUNTS FOR THE CONDUCTING

OF OFFICIAL FOREIGN POLICY.

John: HER PRIVATE

ACCOUNT GAVE HER CONTROL OF

WHAT SHE KEPT IN HER E-MAIL

ARCHIVES.

Pat: I THINK AFTER A

WHILE, PEOPLE ARE SICK OF

THE CLINTONS.

THERE IS ALWAYS SOME

SCANDAL.

THERE IS WHITEWATER AND

THERE IS THIS AND THAT AND

THERE ARE DEAD PEOPLE AND

SOUTHERN MAFIA.

AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ALL ELSE

GOES ON.

AND WE HAVE THE SCANDALS --

THE HUGE AMOUNTS THAT THE

CLINTON FOUNDATION HAS TAKEN

FROM FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS.

THEY HAVE RAISED HALF A

BILLION DOLLARS OR

SOMETHING -- IT'S AN

ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY

THAT THAT CHARITY HAS

RAISED.

AND THEY'RE GETTING BIG

DONATIONS FROM THE SAUDIS

AND THE KUWAITIS AND VARIOUS

OTHER ARAB NATIONS.

AND HOW IS THAT GOING TO

AFFECT A FUTURE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES?

IT JUST DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.

BUT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE --

IT'S ALMOST LIKE A

CORONATION.

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO?

THEY'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING

PRETTY FAST.

IN OTHER NEWS, WE HAVE

ABOUT THAT SPEECH -- MAN,

THAT WAS A HOT TOPIC.

KARL ROVE ROASTED THE

PRESIDENT IN TODAY'S "WALL

STREET JOURNAL" ABOUT THE

WAY HE HANDLED THAT WHOLE

MATTER.

IT WAS VERY INEPT.

AND THE PRIME MINISTER OF

ISRAEL IS SPEAKING OUT ABOUT

WHAT HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT

HIM.

JOHN?

John: THAT'S RIGHT.

PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU HAS

RESPONDED TO PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S CRITICISM OF HIS

ADDRESS TO CONGRESS THIS

WEEK.

MR. OBAMA CHARGED THAT THE

ISRAELI LEADER DIDN'T GIVE

ANY VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO

THE INTERNATIONAL DEAL THAT

IS SUPPOSED TO STOP IRAN

FROM GETTING NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

NETANYAHU DISAGREES.

HE SAID HE PRESENTED A

BETTER DEAL AND A PRACTICAL

ALTERNATIVE.

I PROPOSED IN WASHINGTON

PLACING TWO NEW PARAMETERS

ON ANY DEAL WITH IRAN.

FIRST, PLACE TOUGHER

RESTRICTIONS ON IRAN'S

NUCLEAR PROGRAMS, EXTENDING

ITS BREAK OUT TIME TO THE

BOMBING YEARS.

SECOND, I CALLED FOR LIFTING

THOSE RESTRICTIONS ONLY WHEN

IRAN CEASES PROMOTING

TERRORISM AND ITS AGGRESSION

AGAINST ITS NEIGHBORS AND

STOPS THREATENING TO DESTROY

THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

John: MEANWHILE, THE

FIRST POLL AFTER NETANYAHU'S

SPEECH SHOWS HE MIGHT HAVE

GAINED SLIGHTLY IN THE

POLLS.

Pat: THE E-MAILS WILL

SHOW THAT DAVID AXELROD, WHO

WAS THE PRESIDENT'S CAMPAIGN

ADVISOR FROM PREVIOUS RACES,

SENT A LIST OF SO-CALLED

TALKING POINTS TO THE

PRESIDENT, AND HE USED

VERBATIM WHAT AXELROD SAID.

SO THAT WASN'T EXACTLY

ORIGINAL.

BUT THAT'S WHERE THAT

CRITICISM CAME FROM, FROM A

CAMPAIGN OPERATIVE.

YOU JUST SEE IT IS ALMOST

LIKE A LITTLE PUPPET UP

THERE WITH STRINGS BEING

PULLED.

JOHN?

John: PAT, THE BOSTON

MARATHON BOMBING TRIAL IS IN

ITS SECOND DAY, AND THE

BOMBER'S DEFENSE ATTORNEY

STARTED BY ADMITTING THAT

DZHOKHAR TSARNAEV IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEADLY

ATTACKS.

THE PROSECUTOR SHOWED

NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN OF THE

DEADLY BLAST AND IMAGES OF

DESPERATE LIFE-SAVING

ATTEMPTS.

SOME OF THE SURVIVORS TOOK

THE STAND, DESCRIBING THE

EVENTS THAT INJURED MORE

THAN 260 PEOPLE, AND KILLED

THREE OTHERS, INCLUDING

8-YEAR-OLD MARTIN RICHARD,

WHO WAS STANDING JUST FEET

AWAY FROM WHERE THE SUSPECT

IS SEEN DROPPING A BACKPACK

WITH ONE OF THE TWO BOMBS.

HE SAYS HE WAS COERCED BY

HIS OLDER BROTHER, A DEFENSE

THEY HOPE CAN HELP HIM AVOID

THE DEATH PENALTY.

GIVEN THE AMOUNT OF

EVIDENCE THAT THE GOVERNMENT

HAS, I WOULD SUGGEST IT IS

THE ONLY STRATEGY.

John: ONE OF THE

PROSECUTORS SAID TSARNAEV

BELIEVE HE WAS A SOLDIER IN

A HOLY WAR AGAINST

AMERICANS.

HE FACES 17 CHARGES, 13 OF

WHICH CARRY A DEATH

SENTENCE.

IN HEALTH NEWS, STATIN

DRUGS COULD INCREASE A

PERSON'S RISK OF TYPE 2

DIABETES BY AS MUCH AS 46%.

THE RESEARCHERS SAID STATINS

APPEAR TO INCREASE THE RISK

OF DIABETES IN SEVERAL WAYS,

INCLUDING INCREASING

SOMEONE'S INSULIN

RESISTANCE.

BUT THE STUDY'S AUTHORS

POINTED OUT SINCE THE

RESEARCH WAS ONLY CONDUCTED

ON WHITE MEN, THE FINDING

MAY NOT NECESSARILY APPLY TO

WOMEN OR OTHER GROUPS.

ONE CRITIC TOLD HEALTH DAY

NEWS THAT EACH DOCTOR AND

PATIENT MAY HAVE TO DISCUSS

THE RISKS AND BENEFITS FOR

THE TREATMENT.

AND STATINS ARE AMONG THE

MOST PRESCRIBED DRUGS IN

AMERICA, PAT.

Pat: IT IS A BIG, BIG

MISTAKE.

AND WE'VE GOT THE MAN --

DR. SINATRA IS WITH US TODAY

TO TALK ABOUT THE

CHOLESTEROL RISK.

WE'VE BEEN BANGING AWAY AT

THIS FOR SOME TIME, THE

DANGERS OF THESE STATIN

DRUGS.

IF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF

YOUR ACHES AND YOUR PAINS

AND YOUR SUFFERING AND YOUR

ANGUISH, GET OFF OF THE

STATINS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF SIMPLE

WAYS OF LOWER CHOLESTEROL IF

THAT'S NECESSARY.

YOU'LL FIND DR. SINATRA VERY

ENLIGHTENING, AND HE'LL BE

ON THIS PROGRAM SHORTLY.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, IF YOU

THINK THAT LOWERING THAT

CHOLESTEROL PROBLEM HELPS

PREVENT HEART DISEASE, THINK

AGAIN BECAUSE SUGAR APPEARS

TO BE THE REAL CULPRIT.

FIND OUT WHY WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: HAVE YOU SEEN

THOSE ADS, "I TRUST MY HEART

TO LIPITOR?"

MANY DOCTORS WILL TELL YOU

TO KEEP YOUR HEART HEALTHY,

YOU HAVE TO LOWER YOUR

CHOLESTEROL.

AND THEY MAY PRESCRIBE WHAT

IS CALLED A STATIN, CRESTOR,

LIPITOR -- BUT ONE HEART

DOCTOR SAYS THAT IS

DEFINITELY NOT THE WAY TO

GO.

Reporter: CARDIOLOGIST

DR. STEPHEN SINATRA SAYS

WHEN IT COMES TO HEART

DISEASE, CHOLESTEROL CAN BE

FOUND AT THE SCENE OF THE

CRIME, BUT IT IS NOT THE

PERPETRATOR.

HE SAYS THE REAL BAD GUY IS

IMFLAMMATION, WHICH COMES

FROM EATING TOO MUCH SUGAR

AND TRANS-FAT.

IN HIS BOOK, THE GREAT

CHOLESTEROL MYTH, SINATRA

SAYS LOWERING YOUR

CHOLESTEROL WILL NOT PREVENT

HEART DISEASE.

AND HE CLAIMS

CHOLESTEROL-LOWERING STATIN

DRUGS USUALLY DO MORE HARM

THAN GOOD.

Pat: OKAY.

WELL, THE DOCTOR HAS THE

BOOK.

AND IT'S CALLED "THE GREAT

CHOLESTEROL MYTH," AND WITH

US IS THE AUTHOR AND

RESEARCHER, DR. SINATRA.

HE IS JOINING US HERE LIVE

ON "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS NICE TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

PAT, IT GREAT TO BE

HERE.

Pat: WHAT IS

CHOLESTEROL?

CHOLESTEROL IS A WAXY

SUBSTANCE IN THE BODY THAT

THE BODY REALLY NEEDS.

WE NEED CHOLESTEROL TO

LIVE.

A THIRD OF OUR BRAIN IS

CHOLESTEROL, AND IT FORMS A

MYLON SHEATH.

IT MAKES BILE AND DIGESTION,

AND LUBRICATES THE SKIN.

AND WHEN THE SUN HITS US, IT

MAKES VITAMIN "D."

CHOLESTEROL DOES SO MANY

THINGS, SO TO CALL IT THE

ENEMY I THINK IS CRAZY.

Pat: WHO STARTED THIS

THING ABOUT CHOLESTEROL?

OH, GOSH, IT GOES BACK TO

WORLD WAR II AND PRESIDENT

EISENHOWER, AND HE HAD A

HEART ATTACK AND HE LIKED

HIS BACON AND EGGS.

AND ANSEL KEITH DID SOME

FAULTY RESEARCH, WHERE THEY

CHERRY PICKED COUNTRIES WITH

HIGH CHOLESTEROL.

UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS A BIG

MYTH.

AND, LET'S FACE IT,

CHOLESTEROL WAS FOUND AT THE

SCENE, BUT IT IS NOT THE

PERPETRATOR.

BECAUSE MOST CHOLESTEROL IS

HARMLESS.

BUT WHEN IT BECOMES

OXIDIZED, IT CAN BECOME

INFLAMMATORY.

WHAT OXIDIZES CHOLESTEROL,

CIGARETTE SMOKING, AND HEAVY

METALS, LIKE MERCURY AND

ALUMINA, AND TRANS-FAT.

OMEGA-6s CAN BE

INFLAMMATORY.

Pat: I THOUGHT THEY

WERE GOOD?

THE 3s ARE GOOD AND THE

9s, LIKE OLIVE OIL, ARE

REALLY GOOD.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

GO AHEAD.

EXCUSE ME.

ALL RIGHT.

BUT PFIZER AND THESE DRUG

COMPANIES HAVE REALLY

LATCHED ON TO THIS WITH

THESE STATIN DRUGS.

HOW DID THEY COME ABOUT?

WELL, IF CHOLESTEROL WAS

THE ENEMY AND YOU NEEDED@m@m

SOMETHING TO NEUTRALIZE IT,

SO THIS BECAME BIG BUSINESS

FOR THE MANUFACTURERS.

AND I USED TO -- WHEN I WAS

CHIEF AT CARDIOLOGY AT MY

INSTITUTION, I USED TO

LECTURE FOR THE DRUG

COMPANIES BECAUSE I REALLY

BELIEVED THAT CHOLESTEROL

WAS MORE THAN A THEORY.

25 YEARS AGO, I BELIEVED

THAT CHOLESTEROL CAUSED

HEART DISEASE.

Pat: YOU WERE A TRUE

BELIEVER?

I WAS.

AND THEN I HAD A TOTAL

METAMORPHOSIS.

AND WHEN I WAS DOING

ANGIOGRAMS ON PEOPLE, I

REALIZED THAT CHOLESTEROL

WAS NOT THAT MUCH OF AN

ISSUE.

Pat: YOU SAW PEOPLE

THAT HAD HEAVY CHOLESTEROL

AND DIDN'T HAVE HEART

ATTACKS.

AND THOSE THAT WERE FREE

FROM CHOLESTEROL THAT HAD

HEART ATTACKS.

CORRECT.

Pat: AND SO THERE WAS

NO CORRELATION?

THERE WAS VERY LITTLE

CORRELATION.

REMEMBER THIS, PAT, IF

CHOLESTEROL IS THOUGHT TO BE

THE CAUSE OF HEART

DISEASE -- THAT'S WHY THE

DRUG COMPANIES CAME IN AND

THEY WANTED TO LOWER IT.

AND THAT'S WHY THEY

DEVELOPED STATIN DRUGS.

STATIN DRUGS CAN BE A

BLESSING OR A CURSE.

THE BLESSING IS THIS: THEY

HAPPEN TO LOWER CHOLESTEROL,

BUT THEY DO MANY MORE

BIOCHEMICAL INTERVENTIONS.

FOR EXAMPLE, THEY CAN THIN

THE BLOOD.

WE KNOW IF YOUR BLOOD IS

LIKE RED KETCHUP, THIS

PROMOTES HEART DISEASE.

AND THAT'S WHY FISH OIL IS

GOOD FOR YOU TO THIN THE

BLOOD.

WHEN WE LOOK AT THIS, WE

HAVE TO REALLY LOOK AT THE

PLEOTROPIC EFFECTS OF

STATINS.

SO STATINS THIN THE BLOOD,

THEY'RE ANTIOXIDANTS,

THEY'RE ANTI-INFLAMMATORIES,

AND THEY HAPPEN TO LOWER

CHOLESTEROL.

SO WHEN CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS,

PARTICULARLY MEN WITH

CORONARY DISEASE, UNDER THE

AGE OF 75, I WILL USE A

STATIN.

BECAUSE THE BENEFITS

OUTWEIGH THE RISK.

FOR WOMEN, IT IS TOTALLY

DIFFERENT.

VERY RARELY HAVE I USED

STATIN DRUGS IN WOMEN.

I HAVE NOT SEEN THE EFFECT

IN WOMEN WITH CORONARY

DISEASE AS MEN, BUT WOMEN

GET MANY MORE SIDE EFFECTS

OF STATIN DRUGS.

Pat: THE ACHES AND THE

MUSCLE PAINS AND IT LOWERS

THE CO-Q10.

NOW YOUR TALKING.

CO-X1CO-Q10 HAS BEEN MY

RESEARCH FOR THE PAST 10

YEARS.

CARL FOCUS, WHO WORKED FOR

MERCK PHARMACEUTICALS

DETERMINED THE NAME.

I GOT INVOLVED WITH CO-Q10

IN THE EARLY '80s.

AND WHEN IT CAME OUT THAT

THE STATIN DRUGS ARE KILLING

CO-Q10, I QUESTIONED, HOW

CAN STATINS BE SO GO WHEN

THEY TAKE OUT CO-Q10, THE

MOST VITAL NUTRIENT FOR THE

HEART.

Pat: CO-Q10 IS THE MOST

IMPORTANT NUTRIENT FOR THE

HEART?

YES.

BECAUSE IT CREATES PULSATION

IN THE HEART CELLS.

THE MORE HEALTHY THE

PULSATION, THE MORE

VIBRATION OF YOUR HEART

CELLS, THE GREATER THE

ENERGY IN THE HEART.

YOU REMEMBER FROM HIGH

SCHOOL BIOLOGY, YOU STUDIED

THE MYOCONDRIA -- IT IS OUR

CHI ENERGY, OUR VITAL

FORCE.

WHAT CO-Q10 DOES IS THE

SPARK THAT GETS THAT ENERGY

GOING.

Pat: YOU DON'T GET THAT

NATURALLY.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT IN

SUPPLEMENT?

YOU CAN GET IT IN SALMON

AND SARDINES.

BEEF LIVER HAS THE MOST, BUT

PEOPLE DON'T EAT THAT MUCH.

VEGETARIANS DON'T GET TOO

MUCH.

BASICALLY, YOU NEED TO TAKE

CO-Q10 AS A SUPPLEMENT.

I'VE DONE ENOUGH RESEARCH ON

CO-Q10 AND THE HUMAN MODEL

AND THE RAT MODEL AND EVEN

THE HORSE MODEL --

Pat: 95 OUT OF 100

PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

IT IS, RIGHT?

PEOPLE SEE IT ON

TELEVISION RIGHT NOW.

FOR ME, I'VE BEEN WORKING

WITH IT FOR MORE THAN 30

YEARS, SO IT IS A HOUSEHOLD

WORD.

I'VE KEPT MANY PATIENT ON

CO-Q10.

Pat: BUT STATINS KILL

THE CO-Q10?

YES.

AND THAT'S THE DANGER OF

STATINS.

SO I'M WORRIED ABOUT THE "C"

AND "F" EFFECT BECAUSE THEY

CAN'T REMEMBER NAMES, AND IT

HAPPENS MUCH MORE OFTEN ON A

PERSON ON A STATIN AS

OPPOSED TO A PERSON NOT ON A

STATIN.

MEN UNDER THE AGE OF 75,

STATINS, WITH PROVEN

CORONARY DISEASE, STATINS

ARE GOOD MEDICINE.

Pat: YOU'RE BOOK IS

CALLED "THE GREAT

CHOLESTEROL MYTH," AND YOU

HAVE IN HERE CERTAIN OTHER

SUPPLEMENTS THAT CAN HELP

PEOPLE.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THEM?

OM B OMEGA-3 ESSENTIAL

FATTY ACIDS, AND THE

BERGAMOT.

WE CALL IT A FLAVONOID, IT

LOWERS BLOOD SUGAR.

I BELIEVE BLOOD SUGAR IS THE

MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF NOT

ONLY ANTI-AGING ASPECT, BUT

ALSO YOUR EYES AND YOUR

BRAIN.

WHY DO DIABETICS GET

RETINOPATHY -- BECAUSE IT IS

SUGAR.

Pat: 240 POUNDS A

YEAR -- IS THAT WHAT WE

CONSUME?

160 POUNDS OF SUGAR.

LOOK AT OUR DIET, PAT.

IT IS BREAD, CAKES, COOKIES,

SODA.

SODA BRINGS NOTHING TO THE

TABLE BUT PURE SUGAR.

Pat: HOW ABOUT HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, THAT IS

IN EVERYTHING?

OUT.

IT'S A PRO-INFLAMMATORY AND

IT IS NOT GOOD FOR THE

LIVER.

WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO DO,

INSTEAD OF DRINKING COLAS,

DRINK WATER, BASICALLY.

OR IF YOU LIKE TEA OR

COFFEE, THAT'S FINE.

YOU WANT TO AVOID THE WHITE

FLOURS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

BECAUSE THEY ARE CONVERTED

TO SUGAR.

THE RECENT DIETARY

GUIDELINES CHANGED ON THE

CHOLESTEROL TWO WEEKS AGO.

THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE SAID

YOU CAN EAT LOBSTER OR

SHRIMP OR MEAT -- IT'S

OKAY.

BECAUSE WHAT YOU EAT IN YOUR

DIET WILL ONLY CHANGE THE

CHOLESTEROL IN YOUR BODY BY

A FEW POINTS BECAUSE THE

LIVER MAKES IT.

Pat: DR. ATKINS A FEW

YEARS AGO USED TO BE A GUEST

ON THIS PROGRAM.

WE GAVE HIM FREE HAIRCUTS,

SO HE CAME DOWN AS A REGULAR

ON THE SHOW.

HE WAS CONTROVERSIAL.

IS THE ATKINS' CONCEPT OF

EATING MEAT AND PROTEIN --

HE WAS RIGHT, PAT.

THE ONLY DRAWBACK TO THE

ATKINS' DIET IS IF YOU EAT A

LOT OF MEAT, UNLESSIT IS

RANGE-FED OR ORGANIC, YOU'RE

GOING TO GET A LOT OF

HORMONES.

SO IF YOU'RE A MEAT-EATER,

JUST REMEMBER TO EAT ORGANIC

AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

AND THAT GOES FOR FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES AS WELL.

THE BURDEN OF INSECTICIDES

AND PESTICIDES IN OUR BODY

IS HUGE.

AND THAT WILL OX DIES

L.D.L.

IF WE HAVE A HUGE BURDEN OF

MEDALS OR INSECTICIDES, THAT

COULD INFLUENCE DIABETES AS

WELL.

Pat: WHERE IS ALL OF

THIS DIABETES COMING FROM

AND CANCER, AND OBESITY IS

AN EPIDEMIC OUT OF CONTROL.

BASICALLY IT'S THE

AMERICAN DIET.

WE HAVE TO EAT LESS SUGAR.

GOOD FATS ARE HEALTHY FOR

YOU.

OLIVE OIL IS GOOD FOR YOU,

WALNUTS, COCONUT OIL -- ALL

OF THESE THINGS ARE GOOD FOR

YOU.

SATURATED FAT IS NOT PRONE

TO OXIDATION, SO IF YOU

DON'T HAVE OXIDATION, YOU

DON'T HAVE OXIDATION.

Pat: IS THERE A LITTLE

PILL THAT WILL HELP YOU

ALONG THE WAY?

I LIKE CO-Q10, ESSENTIAL

FATTY ACIDS, BERGAMOT.

AND CARNITINE.

Pat: WHERE DO YOU GET

CARNITINE?

CARNITINE IS FOUND IN

MEAT, AND LAMB IS THE BEST

ONE FOR CARNITINE.

THEY WORK SYNERGISTICALLY.

PEOPLE ARE STARVING ENERGY.

THEY NEED MORE ENERGY AND

CHI AND VITAL FORCE.

AND CO CO-Q10 AND ROBOS --

THAT IS THE CENTER OF IT --

Pat: WHERE DO YOU GET

THAT?

IN ANY HEALTH FOOD

STORE.

IT IS A POWDER, BUT IT

DOESN'T RAISE INSULIN

LEVELS.

IT IS A GOOD, HEALTHY

SUGAR.

Pat: ARE PEOPLE GETTING

ON BOARD WITH SOME OF THE

STUFF YOU'RE SAYING RIGHT

NOW.

IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE.

IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE,

AND A LOT OF DOCTORS ARE

JUMPING ON THIS BANDWAGON

WITH US AND QUESTIONING THE

MYTH OF CHOLESTEROL.

Pat: I FOUND THAT THE

AVERAGE DOCTOR GETS ABOUT A

WEEK OF NUTRITION OR LESS IN

HIS THREE OR FOUR YEARS OF

MEDICAL TRAINING.

THEY'RE WOEFULLY IGNORANT

ABOUT NUTRITION.

I BELONG TO THE RN THE

AMERICAN COLLEGE OF

NUTRITION, AND I'M ON THEIR@m

BOARD OF DIRECTORS, AND@m

WE'RE TRAINING PHYSICIANS.

YOU CAN TAKE AN EXAM CALLED

THE CERTIFIED NUTRITIONIST.

AND THAT'S WHAT DOCTORS

REALLY NEED TO DO.

IT BRINGS AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT

TO THE TABLE.

Pat: THIS BOOK, "THE

GREAT CHOLESTEROL MYTH," CAN

BE OBTAINED WHERE?

YOU CAN GET IT AT

BOOKSTORES, ON THE CBC

WEBSITE, AND AT

AMAZON.COM.

Pat: IT IS GOOD TO SEE

YOU.

I'VE SEEN YOU MANY TIMES

ON TV, AND WHAT A PLEASURE

TO BE HERE.

Pat: WE'VE GOT A PRAYER

REQUEST FOR YOUR SON.

THANKS SO MUCH.

THANKS SO MUCH ABOUT THAT.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Pat: IT IS GOOD TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

TERRY, WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: COMING UP, HER

VITALS WERE FAILING, AND YET

SHE NEVER FELT MORE ALIVE.

IN HEAVEN, THERE IS NO

LIMITATION.

THE FLOWERSWERE SO VIBRANT

AND ALIVE.

THE MUSIC SOUNDS LIKE

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE PRAISING GOD.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

ELSE THIS WOMAN SAW AND

HEARD IN HEAVEN.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: I WANT TO ASK YOU

A QUESTION -- THINK ABOUT

IT -- IS HEAVEN FOR REAL?

IS THERE SUCH A PLACE AS

HEAVEN?

DO PEOPLE, WHEN THEY DIE, GO

THERE?

BY ALL ACCOUNTS, YVONNE

SCHOLAR SHOULDN'T BE HERE.

SHE CODED THREE TIMES IN TWO

WEEKS.

HER LUNGS FAILED, HER HEART

FAILED, AND HER KIDNEYS

FAILED.

AND THEN JUST THREE DAYS

BEFORE SHE WAS TO BE TAKEN

OFF LIFE SUPPORT, YVONNE

WOKE UP.

AND THE FIRST WORDS OUT OF

HER MONTH WERE ABOUT -- YOU

GUESSED IT -- HEAVEN.

I HAD BEEN SICK FOR ABOUT

TWO WEEKS, WHICH FELT LIKE

THE FLU.

AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,

I'VE GOT TO GET TO A DOCTOR

AND JUST GET SOME

ANTIBIOTICS.

Reporter: YVONNE DIDN'T

HAVE THE FLU.

SHE HAD PNEUMONIA, AND IT

WAS GETTING WORSE.

I REALIZED THAT MY

BREATHING WAS SO SHALLOW

THAT I COULDN'T HEAR IT.

AND I SAID, WHAT'S GOING ON,

LORD?

AND HE SAID TO ME, TRUST

ME.

Reporter: THEN YVONNE

COLLAPSED.

SHE WAS TAKEN TO LOMA LINDA

UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER,

WHERE THE DOCTOR DISCOVERED

THE SEVERITY OF HER

ILLNESS.

OUT OF THE SIX LOBES OF

HER LUNG, FOUR OF THEM WERE

INVOLVED IN PNEUMONIA.

Reporter: TESTS

REVEALED THAT THE INFECTION

HAD SPREAD INTO HER

BLOODSTREAM, AND YVONNE WAS

GOING INTO SEPTIC SHOCK.

THE DOCTOR TOLD HER SHE

WOULD NEED TO BE INT

INTUBATED AND PUT INTO AN

MEDICALLY INDUCED COMA SO

THEY COULD TREAT THE

INFECTION.

BUT YVONNE WAS RESISTANT.

I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD

EVER WAKE UP.

AND I TOLD THEM, I HAVE HAD

A REALLY GOOD LIFE, AND IT'S

OKAY TO LET ME GO.

SHE AND I HAD A HEART TO

HEART TALK.

AND WE PRAYED WITH EACH

OTHER.

AND THEN I LOOKED INTO HER

EYES, AND I TOLD YVONNE,

LOOK AT ME.

THIS WILL BE THE LAST PERSON

YOU GET TO SEE BEFORE YOU

WAKE UP THE NEXT TIME.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

CHAPLAIN DONNA HERIC,

YVONNE'S SUPERVISOR AND

FRIEND, RALLIED PEOPLE TO

PRAY.

I TOOK THE LEAD IN THAT

AND GATHERED MY STUDENTS.

SO EVERY DAY SOMEONE COULD

GO AND PRAY WITH HER.

WE GATHERED AS HER FAMILY.

Reporter: THEN YVONNE'S

ORGANS BEGAN TO FAIL.

SHE CODED THREE TIMES OVER

THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

FOR EACH OF THE ORGANS

THAT FAILED, THERE IS

ASSOCIATED APPROXIMATELY A

20% CHANCE OF DYING.

HER LUNGS FAILED, HER HEART

FAILED, HER KIDNEYS FAILED,

AND HER BLOOD SUGAR WAS

GOING OUT OF CONTROL.

SO AT THAT MOMENT, SHE HAD

APPROXIMATELY 70% TO 80%

CHANCE OF DYING.

Reporter: SINCE YVONNE

HAD NO FAMILY PRESENT, HER

FRIENDS MET WITH DOCTORS TO

CONSIDER TURNING OFF HER

LIFE SUPPORT.

AS A LONG TIME CHAPLAIN,

DONNA HAD SEEN THIS MANY

TIMES BEFORE.

WHEN YOU'RE ON A

RESPIRATOR LIKE THAT, DAY

AFTER DAY AFTER DAY, THIS IS

NOT SOMETHING YOU RECOVER

FROM.

YOU DON'T EXPECT THAT.

I HAD PREPARED MYSELF

THAT SHE WAS NOT GOING TO

SURVIVE.

Reporter: LATER DONNA

FELT GOD TOLD HER TO GO TO

HER FRIEND'S SIDE.

SHE DIDN'T APPEAR TO BE

WITH ME, BUT SHE WASN'T

GONE, EITHER.

AND I TOOK HER HANDS, AND I

SAID TO HER, YVONNE, I LOVE

YOU.

AND IT'S OKAY IF YOU WANT TO

STAY WHERE YOU ARE, GO ON TO

STAY WITH THE LORD.

IT'S ABSOLUTELY OKAY.

I WILL MISS YOU.

WE WILL MISS YOU.

BUT IT'S OKAY.

Reporter: DONNA DIDN'T

KNOW THAT AT THE TIME,

YVONNE WAS ALREADY IN

HEAVEN.

I REMEMBER WHEN I LEFT MY

BODY, THAT I WAS IN A

BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL FIELD.

THE FLOWERS WERE SO VIBRANT

AND ALIVE.

THERE ARE NO WORDS TO

DESCRIBE WHAT IT'S LIKE IN

THE PRESENCE OF JESUS, THE

LOVE AND THE LIGHT AND THE

PURITY.

THE LOVE IS INSURMOUNTABLE.

IT IS ALL-CONSUMING.

THE MUSIC WAS MORE BEAUTIFUL

THAN ANY TABERNACLE CHOIR,

ANY ORCHESTRA.

IT SOUNDS LIKE HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE PRAISING

GOD.

THERE ISN'T EVEN AN INKLING

OF ANY OTHER EMOTION THAN

HAPPY.

Reporter: EVO YVONNE

SAYS THEY WALKED THROUGH

HEAVEN.

AND HE TOLD ME, I TELL

YOU IN MY WORD TO ASK FOR

ALL THINGS SMALL AND LARGE,

AND PEOPLE DON'T EVEN FEEL

WORTHY, OR THEY FEEL LIKE

THEY'RE BOTHERING HIM OR IT

IS TOO MUCH TO ASK OR THEY

DON'T BELIEVE IN CHRIST OR

HEAVEN.

AND HE SAYS, REMEMBER TO

TELL PEOPLE, ASK.

Reporter: AND THEN

JESUS TOLD HER SHE HAD TO GO

BACK AND ASKED HER TO

DELIVER A MESSAGE.

I WANT YOU TO TELL PEOPLE

EVERYTHING THAT I'VE SHOWED

YOU.

I WANT YOU TO TELL THEM

ABOUT MY LOVE, MY

FORGIVENESS, AND THAT THEY

CAN COME AS THEY ARE.

I WANT THEM TO REPENT WITH A

SISINCERE HEART AND FOLLOW

MY LAWS.

Reporter: AND THEN

THREE DAYS BEFORE SHE WAS

SCHEDULED TO BE TAKEN OFF

LIFE SUPPORT, YVONNE WOKE

UP.

WHAT WAS SO AMAZING ABOUT

THAT WAS JUST THE SHIFT OF

GOING FROM DEATH TO LIFE.

I MEAN, YOU DON'T JUST --

YOU KNOW, I WAS INTUBATED,

AND JUST THE THINGS THAT

HAPPEN TO THE HUMAN BODY

WHEN THEY'RE INTUBATED THAT

LONG, THERE IS NO LIFE.

AND THEN TO WALK IN THE

ROOM.

AND SHE IS NOT UP DOING

DANCES, BUT SHE WAS YVONNE

YVONNE.

BUT VERY QUICKLY SHE

PROGRESSED TO A REGULAR

ROOM, AND THEN SHE WAS GONE

TO REHAB.

IT WAS AMAZING, AMAZING.

COMING BACK WAS

BITTERSWEET.

FIRST OF ALL, YOU'RE IN THIS

BODY AGAIN, WHICH IS VERY

CUMBERSOME, AND IT'S VERY

LIMITING.

IN HEAVEN, THERE IS NO

LIMITATION.

AND I WAS TALKING ABOUT

HEAVEN.

AS SOON AS THEY PUT A LITTLE

DEVICE ON MY THROAT.

Reporter: WHILE

YVONNE'S RECOVERY WAS LONG

AND DIFFICULT, SHE BOUNCED

BACK.

AND DR. LOWE IS ASTOUNDED BY

HER PROGRESS.

YVONNE IS A MIRACLE.

NORMALLY IS VERY HARD FOR A

PATIENT LIKE HER TO HAVE

SUCH A MIRACULOUS RECOVERY,

AND TO THE POINT WHERE SHE

CAN GO BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

AT LARGE AND KIND OF

CONTRIBUTE ACTIVELY.

Reporter: LATER SHE

MARRIED RICK, ONE OF THE

FAITHFUL FRIENDS WHO PRAYED

FOR HER RECOVERY.

YVONNE BELIEVES THAT SHE WAS

BROUGHT BACK FOR A VERY

SPECIAL REASON.

I THINK THAT MY ENTIRE

MISSION ON EARTH IS TO SHARE

WHAT HAPPENED TO ME IN

HEAVEN, AND HOW MUCH HIS

LOVE IS AND HIS FORGIVENESS,

AND WHAT IT'S LIKE THERE.

I DON'T EVEN HAVE ENOUGH

WORDS OR ADJECTIVES TO

DESCRIBE IT.

IT IS A PLACE THAT I'M

LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING

BACK TO.

AND I WANT AS MANY PEOPLE TO

GO WITH ME AS POSSIBLE.

Pat: WHAT A STORY.

THE BIBLE SAYS, EYE HASN'T

SEEN, NEITHER HAS EAR HEARD,

NOR HAS IT ENTERED INTO THE

HEART OF MAN WHAT GOD HAS

PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE

HIM.

THE LORD HAS REVEALED IT

UNTO US BY HIS SPIRIT.

TO YVONNE, HE REVEALED IT TO

HER WHEN SHE ACTUALLY WENT

TO HEAVEN AND SAW IT.

I CAN'T DESCRIBE IT.

EAR HASN'T HEARD IT.

YOU CAN'T DESCRIBE WHAT IS

THERE.

BUT IT IS SO WONDERFUL.

WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU, I IT

IS SO WONDERFUL.

IT IS BASED ON HIS

FORGIVENESS BECAUSE HE

DOESN'T WANT TO CONDEMN

PEOPLE.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO SEND

PEOPLE TO HELL.

GOD TAKES NO PLEASURE IN THE

DEATH OF THE WICKED.

HE TAKES NO PLEASURE IN THE

DEATH OF ANYBODY.

THE BIBLE SAYS PRECIOUS IN

THE SIGHT OF THE LORD IS THE

DEATH OF HIS SAINTS BECAUSE

THE SAINTS WILL GO TO BE

WITH HIM.

BUT, LISTEN, WHERE DO YOU

WANT TO BE?

I MEAN, WHY WOULD YOU CHOOSE

ANY OTHER COURSE?

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO BE IN

HELL?

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO HOLD

ON TO YOUR SELFISHNESS?

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO HOLD

ON TO YOUR DESTRUCTIVE

HABITS?

WHY?

WHY WOULD YOU DO IT?

WELL, THERE IS NO ANSWER.

THE ANSWER IS, I WANT TO BE

WITH JESUS FOREVER IN

HEAVEN.

I WANT JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND

FULL OF GLORY.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO

OFFER.

DO YOU WANT IT?

IT'S FREE.

IT DOESN'T COST YOU

ANYTHING.

IT COST JESUS CHRIST

SUFFERING AND DEATH ON THE

CROSS.

BUT FOR YOU IT IS FREE

BECAUSE HE HAS ALREADY PAID

THE PRICE FOR IT.

BUT IT ALSO MEANS THAT WHEN

YOU ACCEPT HIM, YOU SAY I'M

GOING TO LIVE FOR YOU AND I

WILL FOLLOW YOUR

COMMANDMENTS.

I WILL COMPORT MYSELF

ACCORDING TO THE WAY YOU

WANT ME TO LIVE.

BECAUSE THAT'S THE BEST WAY

FOR YOU.

NOW, IF YOU WANT THAT, IF

YOU WANT TO BE SET FREE.

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE AN

ANSWER INTO GLORY, WHEN THE

TIME COMES FOR YOU TO LEAVE

THIS LIFE -- I WANT YOU TO

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

HUNDREDS OF YOU, STOP WHAT

YOU'RE DOING AND PRAY THESE

WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND I GIVE YOU MY HEART.

LORD, I WANT TO BE WITH YOU

IN HEAVEN.

I WANT TO BE PART OF YOUR

HEAVENLY KINGDOM.

SO, LORD, I RECEIVE YOUR

DEATH FOR ME.

I TABLIN TAKE YOUR

FORGIVENESS.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I

WILL LIVE FOR YOU AND I WILL

SERVE YOU FOR THE REST OF MY

LIFE.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU

HAVE HEARD MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE

OPENED THE DOOR TO HEAVEN.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME

JUST THEN, I WANT YOU TO DO

ME A FAVOR.

I WANT YOU TO GO TO YOUR

TELEPHONE.

I WANT YOU TO CALL AND TELL

SOMEBODY WHO IS ON THE

PHONE.

WE HAVE COUNSELLORS, LOTS

AND LOTS OF THEM, TO TAKE

YOUR CALLS.

AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM

HAS MADE THE SAME DECISION

YOU HAVE.

THEY LOVE GOD; THEY LOVE

YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

I WANT YOU TO CALL IN RIGHT

NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

SAY, LOOK, I JUST PRAYED

WITH PAT.

I'M ON THE WAY TO HEAVEN.

I'M GOING TO BE THERE.

I'VE PASSED FROM DEATH INTO

LIFE.

QUICKLY CALL IN.

1-800-759-0700.

YOU JUST NEED TO CONFESS

WHAT YOU'VE JUST DONE.

IF YOU WANT TO GIVE US YOUR

NAME, WE'LL SEND YOU SOME

LITERATURE THAT WILL HELP

YOU.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE US

YOUR NAME, THAT'S FINE,

TOO.

BUT CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'VE GOT SOME MORE EXCITING

THINGS ON "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND HERE IS TERRY TO TELL US

ABOUT IT.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, HGTV DESIGNER TARA

TASCO, LEARN HO HEAR HOW HE

LEARNED THE SECRET TO

SUCCESS THE HARD WAY.

HIS STORY IS COMING UP.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

NEW YORK CITY MAYOR BILL DE

BLASIO SAYS THE CITY'S

PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM WILL

CLOSE FOR TWO MUSLIM

HOLIDAYS NEXT YEAR.

THEY'RE THE FIRST ISLAMIC

HOLIDAYS RECOGNIZED BY THE

NATION'S LARGEST SCHOOL

SYSTEM, WHICH INCLUDES MORE

THAN A MILLION CHILDREN.

HE SAYS THE MOVE MEANS THAT

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

MUSLIM FAMILIES WILL NO

LONGER HAVE TO CHOOSE

BETWEEN SENDING THEIR KIDS

TO SCHOOL OR OBSERVING THE

ISLAMIC HOLIDAYS.

> WELL, SOME GOOD NEWS

FROM LIBERIA, IT COULD BE

EBOLA-FREE IN JUST 42 DAYS.

THE LAST PATIENT INFECTED BY

THE VIRUS WAS RELEASED

TODAY.

OFFICIALS SAY THERE ARE NO

OTHER CONFIRMED CASES OF

EBOLA IN LIBERIA.

THE HEAD OF THE INCIDENTS

MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ENCOURAGED

LIBERIANS TO STAY COMMITTED

TO THE ANTI-EBOLA

REGULATIONS.

THE OUTBREAK IN LIBERIA WAS

DISCOVERED A YEAR AGO, AND

SINCE THEN NEARLY 10,000

DEATHS HAVE BEEN REPORTED.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: TERA TASCO

STARTED OUT WITH A PROMISING

CAREER.

AT 18, HE ALREADY HAD HIS

OWN BUSINESS.

BUT JUST A FEW YEARS LATER,

HE WAS LEFT WITH A FAILED

COMPANY, NO SALARY, AND

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN

DEBT.

Reporter: TERA TASCO

HAS ALWAYS HAD A TALENT FOR

DESIGN.

I DID COLORING CONTESTS.

I WAS CONSTANTLY DRAWING.

I WOULD SAY IT WAS MORE OF A

PASSION THAT ENDED UP

DEVELOPING A PAYCHECK.

Reporter: WITH THAT

PASSION, HE STARTED "NEW

CREATIONS" STUDIO WHEN HE

WAS 18.

HE BOUGHT THE BEST EQUIPMENT

THAT MONEY HE DIDN'T HAVE

COULD BUY.

I STARTED IMMEDIATELY

$6,000 IN THE WHOLE.

ON TOP OF THAT, I BOUGHT A

CAR AT THE TIME.

SO I WAS $30,000, SOMEWHERE

IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, THAT I

WAS MAKING PAYMENTS ON.

Reporter: FOR THE FIRST

SIX MONTHS, BUSINESS WAS

GREAT.

BUT THE WORK STARTED DRYING

UP AND HE WASN'T PREPARED.

I DIDN'T ACCOUNT FOR ANY

OF THE SLOW PERIODS.

I THOUGHT IT IS ONE BIG

GIANT WAVE AND WE'LL BE ABLE

TO RIDE THIS INTO INFINITY,

AND THAT WASN'T THE CASE.

THE THING CAME CRASHING DOWN

AND I HAD TO SAVINGS,

REALLY, IN THE BUSINESS.

I WASN'T TAKING A SALARY FOR

MYSELF.

SO I HAD TO START FLOATING

THE BUSINESS ON CREDIT

CARDS.

Reporter: HE WAS RAISED

IN A HOME WHERE HE WAS

TAUGHT THE IMPORTANCE OF

TITHING.

SO WHEN HE STARTED HIS

BUSINESS, HE PROMISED HE

WOULD DO THE SAME.

BUT AS THE DEBT PILED UP, IT

DROPPED LOW ON HIS PRIORITY

LIST.

THE BUDGET WAS SO TIGHT,

I FELT I DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY TO TITHE.

THAT'S WHERE I MADE A BIG

MISTAKE, PROBABLY ONE OF THE

GREATEST MISTAKES.

Reporter: HE STARTED

WORKING AT HIS FATHER'S LAW

FIRM AS CLERK.

ONE DAY HIS DAD SAT HIM DOWN

AND HAD A HEART TO HEART.

HE CAME IN AND OPENED THE

DOOR, LOOKED STRAIGHT AT ME,

AND SAID, YOU REALLY LOVE

DESIGN AND DOING ART, DON'T

YOU?

AND I WAS, LIKE, YEAH,

ABSOLUTELY.

AND HE SAID THIS, IF THAT'S

WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO, PUT IT

BEFORE THE LORD AND THEN GO

AFTER IT WITH EVERYTHING

YOU'VE GOT.

SO AT THIS POINT I REALIZED,

LORD, THIS IS YOURS.

THE DESIGN IS YOURS.

IF YOU WANT ME TO CONTINUE

IN THIS DIRECTION, YOU HAVE

TO PROVIDE JOBS.

NOW IT IS SOLELY UP TO YOU.

THE LORD ANSWERED THAT

PRAYER IN A BIG WAY.

Reporter: HE LANDED

FOUR JOBS IN LESS THAN A

WEEK.

RIGHT AWAY HE STARTED

TITHING AGAIN AND PAYING OFF

HIS DEBT.

IT WAS PAYCHECK, 10%

TITHE.

90% I KEPT.

USUALLY I WOULD THROW THAT

ON TOP OF THE DEBT.

IT TOOK A COUPLE OF YEARS

WHERE I CHOPPED 30 GRAND

DOWN TO ZERO.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, HIS REPUTATION AS A

TALENTED DESIGNER SPREAD.

HE LANDED PROJECTS WITH NIKE

AND YAMAHA, AND HE ALSO MADE

IT TO THE FINALS ON HGTV

REALITY SHOW, "DESIGN

STAR."

I KNOW I WAS GIVING MY

10% FAITHFULLY TO THE LORD

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I'M

REQUIRED TO DO, BUT ONE

THING I REALIZED THAT

HAPPENED WAS I WAS MORE

THANKFUL.

EVERYTHING THAT I GOT, IN

TERMS OF MY PAYCHECK, ALL OF

MY INCREASE, I WAS SO

THANKFUL FOR ALL OF IT.

AND TO GIVE THE LORD BACK

10% WAS LIKE A PLEASURE.

WELL, THANK YOU.

Reporter: TODAY HE AND

HIS WIFE, MICHELLE, ARE

RAISING TWO BOYS.

THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY

UNDERSTAND EARLY ABOUT THE

IMPORTANCE OF TITHING.

WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY

TO TITHE.

AND STEWARD.

WE TITHE NO MATTER WHAT.

THAT'S WHAT WE DO.

YOU CAN NEVER OUTGIVE GOD.

Terry: I LOVE THE

THINGS THAT JERABI SHARES.

IT IS A WORD FOR ALL OF US.

IT IS SO EASY TO TAKE THE

BLESSINGS OF GOD FOR

GRANTED.

BUT HE IS SO RIGHT.

WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO

TAKE CARE OF WHAT GOD HAS

GIVEN US, TO STEWARD IT

WELL.

ONE OF THE THINGS GOD ASKS

US TO DO IS TO CARE ABOUT

PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING,

PEOPLE WHO HAVE LESS, PEOPLE

WHO NEED A HELPING HAND.

AND WE WANT TO INVITE YOU TO

DO THAT BY JOINING "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH.

BUT YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY

TO REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS

AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

WHEN YOU CALL TODAY, YOU'LL

BE JOINING WITH MANY, MANY

OF US WHO ARE OUT TO DO JUST

THAT.

AND WE WELCOME YOU TO THE

FAMILY OF MINISTRIES HERE AT

CBN.

IT IS REACHING AROUND THE

WORLD, AND IT IS BECAUSE OF

PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT IT

HAPPENS.

SO WILL YOU CALL NOW AND

JOIN WITH US?

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT

OTHERS BY SENDING YOU "BE

HEALED."

THIS IS PAT'S LATEST

TEACHING, AND WE THINK IT

WILL BE A HUGE BLESSING FOR

YOU.

CALL NOW.

HERE IS JAMES, WHO LIVES IN

LOUISIANA.

AND HE SAYS HE ABSOLUTELY

ENJOYED "BE HEALED."

AND SAYS IT IS VERY

ENCOURAGING THAT GOD IS

STILL ALIVE AND WELL AND

HEALING PEOPLE.

THERE IS NOTHING TOO HARD

FOR GOD.

YOU CALL NOW.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

IS TO SEND YOU "BE HEALED."

WE THINK YOU'LL BE REALLY

BLESSED BY IT.

Pat: UP NEXT, WE'VE GOT

E-MAILS.

AND SHERRY SAYS, "MY SPOUSE

AND I ARE NOT IN AGREEMENT

IF WHETHER OR NOT WE SHOULD

ATTEND THE GAY MARRIAGE OF

OUR SON -- OR THE MARRIAGE

OF OUR GAY CHILD.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?"

I'LL TAKE UP SHERRY'S

QUESTIONS AND MORE, AFTER

THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO BRING

IT ON WITH SOME OF THE

E-MAIL QUESTIONS YOU

SUBMITTED.

SHERRY SAYS, "MY SPOUSE AND

I ARE NOT IN AGREEMENT AS TO

WHETHER OR NOT WE SHOULD

ATTEND THE GAY MARRIAGE OF

OUR CHILD.

ONE OF US FEELS IT IS

TOTALLY AGAINST THE LORD'S

PLAN AND OUR ATTENDANCE

WOULD SEND, AT THE VERY

LEAST, A MIXED MESSAGE.

OR IT COULD BE LIKE TAKING A

STAND FOR GAY MARRIAGE.

WE WANT TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR

OUR CHILD, THAT IS NECESSARY

TO THE FUTURE OF OUR

RELATIONSHIP AND WITNESS.

SHOULD ONE ATTEND WHY THE

OTHER ONE DOES NOT?"

Pat: IF YOU WANT TO ASK

MY OPINION, I THINK YOU

DON'T AGREE WITH THE IDEA OF

HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE.

YOU SAY GAY -- I DON'T KNOW

IF IT IS TWO MEN OR TWO

WOMEN.

Terry: THEY DON'T SAY.

Pat: THEY DON'T SAY.

BUT IT IS NOT HETEROSEXUAL.

IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH IT

AND YOU'VE GOT TO STAND

THERE AND BE A WITNESS TO

IT?

BY THE ATTENDANCE OF THE

CEREMONY, YOU'RE AGREEING.

WE USED TO SAY, ANYBODY WHO

OPPOSES THIS, LET HIM SPEAK

OR HOLD YOUR PEACE.

I JUST WOULDN'T GO.

I WOULD TELL YOUR CHILD, I

LOVE YOU, BUT I CANNOT

CONDONE THIS.

WE ALWAYS LOVE YOU, BUT I

DON'T CONDONE THIS

ACTIVITY.

I'M HERE IF YOU NEED ME.

Terry: A DIFFICULT

DECISION.

Pat: IT'S TOUGH.

AND NOT ONE OF YOU -- THAT

INDICATES THAT HIS CONDUCT

IS SPLITTING YOUR MARRIAGE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

BE A UNITY.

I WOULD SAY DON'T GO.

Terry: BARBARA

SAYS, "PAT, COULD YOU

EXPLAIN WHO EXACTLY MEL

KISADEC WAS?

HE IS REFERRED AS BEING THE

PRIEST MOST HIGH.

AND HE IS REFERRED TO IN

GENESIS AND HEBREWS.

PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND."

Pat: MEDIC MEAN KING,

AND SEDIC MEANS

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

SO HE WAS THE KING OF

RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PEACE.

SO IN A SENSE, HE WAS LIKE A

THEOFANY.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE HE CAME

FROM OR WHO HE WAS, BUT HE

CAME AND TOOK TITHES FROM

ABRAHAM.

SO HE IS USED AS AN EXAMPLE

OF A PRIESTHOOD THAT EXISTED

BEFORE THE LEVITICAL

PRIESTHOOD.

I THINK HE WAS A TYPE OF

CHRIST, BUT WE DON'T KNOW

THAT.

BUT THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS.

Terry: DEBBIE SAYS,

"PLEASE, I WOULD LIKE TO

KNOW, WHAT IS THE BATTLE OF

ARMAGEDDON.

WHAT IS THE SEES SEQUENCE

SEQUENCE OF THESE EVENTS?"

Pat: GEDDO IS A PLACE

IN ISRAEL.

IT COMES DOWN OUT OF HAIFA,

DOWN INTO THE CENTER OF

ISRAEL, INTO THE SHARON

VALLEYS.

VALLEY.

OKAY.

NOW, THE BIBLE SAYS THEY

GATHERED AT A PLACE CALLED

ARMAGEDDON, AND THEN THEY

WENT TO JERUSALEM.

THE BATTLE IS THE BATTLE OF

JERUSALEM.

IT IS THE LAST DAY, WHERE

THE FORCES OF EVIL HAVE

GATHERED AGAINST THE PEOPLE

OF GOD.

IT IS THE LAST BATTLE.

AND BEYOND THAT, I MEAN,

THERE IS ALL THIS MYTH THAT

HAS BEEN CREATED BY THE

"WASHINGTON POST," AND

PEOPLE LIKE THAT, THAT

SOMEHOW WE BELIEVE IN

BRINGING ON THE BATTLE OF

ARMAGEDDON AND EVERYTHING.

IT IS THE BATTLE FOR

JERUSALEM, AND JERUSALEM

WILL ULTIMATELY BE THE

CENTER OF CONFLICT BETWEEN

THE FORCES OF THE

ANTI-CHRIST AND THE FORCES

OF GOD.

ARMAGEDDON HAS BEEN USED

MORE AND MORE AS SOME KIND

OF A LAST DAY.

WHEN DOES IT HAPPEN?

WELL, I WON'T GO INTO ALL OF

THAT.

BUT I BELIEVE IT WILL

HAPPEN -- WELL, I CAN'T GO

INTO IT RIGHT NOW.

THERE IS ENOUGH

CONTROVERSY.

I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT MY VIEWS

LATER ON.

Terry: THIS IS KATHRYN

WHO SAYS, "SOMEONE IN MY

FAMILY WANTS ME TO GO TO A

DOCTOR WHO CALLS HIMSELF A

NEW-AGE CHIROPRACTOR.

ISN'T NEW-AGE A RELIGION,

AND AREN'T WE SUPPOSED TO

STAY AWAY FROM IT ON ALL

LEVELS?"

Pat: NEW-AGE ISN'T

NECESSARILY A RELIGION.

BUT IT CARRIES A LOT OF

BAGGAGE WITH IT, AND

PROBABLY TIED TO SOME

HINDUISM IN IT.

I DON'T THINK I WOULD GO TO

A CHIROPRACTOR WHO SAYS HE

IS INTO NEW-AGE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE IS

DOING.

WE HAVE CERTAIN LIFE FORCES,

AND DR. SINATRA WAS TALKING

ABOUT THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF

CHI.

WELL, THE CHINESE THOUGHT

THERE WAS A LIFE FORCE, AND

SOME OF THAT ACUPUNCTURE.

BUT THAT WOULDN'T

NECESSARILY BE NEW-AGE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS GUY

DOES.

BUT THE ANSWER IS YOU DON'T

WANT TO BE INVOLVED WITH

SOMEBODY WHO HAS SOME KIND

OF OCCULT ACTIVITY GOING

ON.

I DON'T KNOW BEYOND THAT.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PSALM 94:

"FOR THE LORD GOD IS A SUN

AND SHIELD.

THE LORD BESTOWS FAVOR AND

HONOR.

NO GOOD THING DOES HE

WITHHOLD FROM THOSE WHO WALK

UPRIGHTLY."

WELL, TOMORROW WE'VE GOT A

FORMER VEGAS CALL GIRL.

BUT SHE CAME TO THE LORD AND

WENT BACK ON THE STREETS OF

SIN CITY.

IT IS AN INTERESTING

PROGRAM.

YOU DONT WAN DON'T WANT TO

MISS TOMORROW.

FOR ALL OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON, AND BE WITH US

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
