The 700 Club - May 27, 2015

In his latest book Do Over, author Jon Acuff will tell how you can take a leap and have your own career do-over. Plus, Bill’s quest for wealth landed him in federal prison. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING

UP...THE BLOCK THAT COULD

DETERMINE WHO SITS IN THE

OVAL OFFICE.

THIS IS A HUGE

CONSTITUENCY THAT CAN AND

FRANKLY WILL TURN

ELECTIONS.

HOW YOU ADDRESS IT IS A

BIG ISSUE.

Wendy: PLUS...ARE YOU

STUCK IN A RUT?

JOHN ACUFF SHARES HOW TO

GIVE YOUR LIFE A DO-OVER,

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THEY SAID IT WAS A DROUGHT

IN TEXAS.

WELL, NO LONGER.

YOU TALK ABOUT TEXAS, AND

THEY DO IT BIG.

EVERYTHING HAS GOT TO BE

BIG.

IMAGINE A FOOT OF RAIN IN

JUST ONE DAY.

THAT'S HOW MUCH RAIN FELL

ON AMERICA'S FOURTH

LARGEST CITY, HOUSTON,

TEXAS.

MUCH OF THAT RAIN CAME IN

JUST SIX HOURS, AND THAT

LED TO FLOODING THAT HIT

VIRTUALLY EVERY PART OF

THIS GREAT CITY.

Wendy: IT HAS BEEN

DEVASTATING.

NOW THE DEATH TOLL IS ON

THE RISE AFTER THE HEAVY

RAINS AND HORRIBLE FLOODS

RIPPED THROUGH BOTH TEXAS

AND OKLAHOMA.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: 4,000 HOMES

DAMAGED, MORE THAN 2,000

VEHICLES ABANDONED AFTER

NEARLY A QUARTER OF

HOUSTON'S ANNUAL RAINFALL

FELL IN JUST 24 HOURS.

A 44-FOOT WALL OF WATER

RUSHED DOWN THE BLANCO

RIVER ON SUNDAY,

DEMOLISHING HOMES AND

BUSINESSES.

WE HAD 1,000 PROPERTIES

WE VISUALLY INSPECTED.

WE BELIEVE THERE MAY BE AS

MANY AS 4,000 WITH

SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE.

I CAN'T SEE.

Reporter: THIS IS

WHAT ONE DRIVER SAW TRYING

TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE

FLOODWATERS THAT TRAPPED

HUNDREDS.

WE HAVE A FEMALE

TRAPPED UNDERNEATH THE

BRIDGE IN A CAR.

I WAS SLEEPING IN THAT

ROOM LAST WEEKEND.

I WAS HERE FOR A NIECE'S

WEDDING, AND I WAS

SLEEPING IN THAT ROOM.

ALL OF THE FURNITURE LEFT

AND THE WALL IS GONE.

Reporter: AND THE

DANGER IS NOT OVER YET.

METEOROLOGISTS SAY THE

STORMS ARE NOT DONE,

RAISING THE PROSPECT OF

EVEN MORE FLOODING.

MEANWHILE THE SEARCH

CONTINUES FOR THE MORE

THAN ONE DOZEN STILL

MISSING, INCLUDING LAURA

McCOMB AND HER TWO YOUNG

CHILDREN, AND THEY WERE

SHARING THIS VACATION

HOUSE IN WHIMBERLEY WITH

OTHER FAMILY WHEN THE

STORM HAPPENED.

"OPERATION BLESSING'S"

DISASTER RELIEF TEAM HAS

BEEN DEPLOYED AND WILL BE

HELPING THE VICTIMS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN THE WEATHER?

I'LL TELL YOU, I DON'T

HAVE ANY ANSWER TO IT.

BUT THEY TALK ABOUT EL

NIÑO AND ALL OF THE STUFF

THAT IS GOING ON AND THE

WARMTH IN THE PACIFIC

OCEAN, BUT THIS IS

INCREDIBLE.

FOR A CITY LIKE HOUSTON TO

HAVE THAT KIND OF WATER IS

UNBELIEVABLE.

ANYHOW, OUR PRAYERS ARE

WITH OUR DEAR FRIENDS IN

HOUSTON, TEXAS.

WENDY?

Wendy: IN OTHER NEWS,

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

SUFFERED ANOTHER DEFEAT IN

COURT ON HIS EXECUTIVE

ORDER FOR ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THANKS, WENDY.

THE PRESIDENT'S EXECUTIVE

ORDER PROTECTING

IMMIGRANTS FROM

DEPORTATION IS STILL ON

HOLD.

IT WOULD HAVE KEPT AS MANY

AS FIVE MILLION IMMIGRANTS

LIVING IN THE U.S. FROM

BEING DEPORTED.

26 STATES SUED TO STOP THE

ADMINISTRATION FROM

IMPLEMENTING THE PROGRAM,

AND REPUBLICANS CRITICIZED

THE PRESIDENT FOR

OVERREACHING BEYOND HIS

CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS.

NOW THE ORDER WON'T GO

INTO EFFECT UNTIL THE

COURTS DECIDE IF THE

PRESIDENT HAS THE LEGAL

AUTHORITY TO MAKE SUCH A

MOVE.

PAT, ANOTHER STINGING

SETBACK FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

Pat: HE WAS SUPPOSED

TO HAVE TAUGHT

CONSTITUTIONAL LAW IN SOME

PLACE -- I DON'T KNOW IF

WAS HARVARD OR WHEREVER IT

WAS, BUT HE SURE ACTS LIKE

HE HAS NEVER SEEN THE

CONSTITUTION IN HIS LIFE.

THE CONSTITUTION IS A

DOCUMENT THAT HAS VERY

CLEARLY DEFINED POWERS,

AND LIMITED POWERS.

THAT'S THE WAY THE FRAMERS

INTENDED IT.

THEY WANTED A LEGISLATIVE

BRANCH.

THEY WANTED AN EXECUTIVE

BRANCH.

THE EXECUTIVE CARRIES OUT

THE LAWS.

THE LEGISLATURE PASSES THE

LAWS.

BUT OBAMA SAYS, I DON'T

NEED THE LEGISLATURE.

I AM A KING, AND I CAN

RULE WITHOUT IT.

AND THE FIFTH CIRCUIT

SAYS, OH, NO YOU'RE NOT.

John: PAT, THE

ISLAMIC RADICALS OF ISIS

ARE DANGEROUS, BUT A

NUCLEAR IRAN WOULD BE FAR

WORSE.

THAT'S THE WARNING FROM

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU.

HE TOLD SENATOR BILL

CASSIDY THAT AS HORRIFIC

AS ISIS IS, ONCE IRAN, THE

PRE-EMINENT TERRORIST

STATE OF OUR TIME,

ACQUIRES NUCLEAR WEAPONS,

IT WILL BE 100 TIMES MORE

DANGEROUS -- 1,000 TIMES

MORE DANGEROUS AND MORE

DESTRUCTIVE THAN ISIS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS BEEN

TRYING TO REACH AN

AGREEMENT WITH IRAN OVER

ITS NUCLEAR PROGRAM, BUT

NETANYAHU HAS REPEATEDLY

WARN THAT IT WOULD BE A

BAD DEAL AND GIVE IRAN A

PASS TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

PAT?

Pat: I'M DELIGHTED TO

SEE DORI GOLD INVOLVED.

HE IS A SUPER SMART GUY

AND VERY BALANCED.

I THINK HE WILL BE A

WONDERFUL COMPANION WITH

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU.

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

DO SOMETHING.

IF WHAT NETANYAHU HAS BEEN

SAYING IS TRUE, AND I

THINK IT IS, IF IRAN IS

THE THREAT THAT THEY THINK

IT IS AND THEY'RE ON THE

WAY TO GETTING A NUCLEAR

DEVICE, THEN ISRAEL HAS

GOT TO MAKE A MOVE.

IT'S JUST A QUESTION OF

HOW SOON.

I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY'RE

WAITING SO LONG, BUT

SOMETHING HAS GOT TO BE

DONE.

AND THEY CAN'T WAIT ON THE

WHITE HOUSE BECAUSE WHITE

HOUSE ISN'T GOING TO GIVE

THEM ANY HELP.

THAT WILL BRING THE ENTIRE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

AGAINST THEM IF THEY TAKE

ACTION.

BUT WE'LL SEE.

THE SAUDIS ARE ON BOARD,

THE EMIRATES ARE ON BOARD.

THEY DON'T WANT A NUCLEAR

IRAN ANYMORE THAN ISRAEL

DOES.

MAYBE TOGETHER THEY CAN

MAKE A DEAL AND HIT A

SURGICAL STRIKE TO TAKE

SOME OF THOSE OUT.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO TAKE IT

ALL OUT.

BUT THEY CAN SLOW THE

PROCESS OUT.

John: A U.S. MARINE

HAS BEEN CONVICTED FOR

DISPLAYING A BIBLE VERSE.

SHE WAS STATIONED AT CAMP

LESHUN.

IT READS: "NO WEAPON

FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL

PROSPER."

HER SUPERVISOR TOLD HER TO

REMOVE IT, AND AFTER SHE

REFUSED, SHE WAS GIVEN A

BAD CONDUCT DISCHARGE AND

DEMOTED TO PRIVATE.

BOTH THE TRIAL AND THE

APPELLATE COURT SAID

DISPLAYING A BIBLE VERSE

IS NOT A PROTECTED

RELIGIOUS EXERCISE.

NOW A RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

LAW FIRM AND A FORMER

GENERAL HAS TAKEN UP HER

CASE, ASKING THE

MILITARY'S HIGHEST COURT

TO TAKE IT UP AND PROTECT

HER RIGHT TO RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT THIS STORY AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT?

Pat: I AM A FORMER

MARINE LIEUTENANT, AND I

ALSO WAS THE LEGAL OFFICER

OF THE HEADQUARTERS IN

QUANTICO, VIRGINIA, WHEN I

GOT FINISHED BEING IN

CAREER.

KOREA.

I CANNOT IMAGINE GIVING A

BAD CONDUCT DISCHARGE

BECAUSE SHE HAD A

SCRIPTURE THAT SAID, "NO

WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU

SHALL PROSPER."

WHAT A GREAT SCRIPTURE FOR

A MILITARY PERSON TO HAVE.

ONE GROUP READ THE 91st

PALM AND THEY HAD ALMOST

NO CASUALTIES AT ALL.

FOR SOMEBODY TO ORDER A

WOMAN TO TAKE THAT OFF HER

COMPUTER, IT IS JUST

OUTRAGEOUS.

WELL, WE HAVE A FORMER

SOLICITOR GENERAL, WHO IS

A SUPERB LAWYER, WHO WILL

BE REPRESENTING HER IN

THIS.

BUT THIS IS AN OUTRAGE.

AND FOR THOSE OF US WHO

SERVED IN THE SERVICE,

THIS, TO ALL OF US, SHOULD

BE AN OFFENSE THAT WE

SHOULD RISE UP AGAINST.

WE CAN'T LET THIS STUFF GO

ON IN THE SERVICE.

LETTING THEM TAKE AWAY THE

RELIGIOUS RIGHTS OF OUR

SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN.

JOHN?

John: PAT,

SOPHISTICATED CRIMINALS

USED AN ONLINE SERVICE RUN

BY THE I.R.S. TO STEAL

PERSONAL TAX INFORMATION

FROM MORE THAN 100,000

TAXPAYERS.

THE THIEVES GOT INTO THE

ONLINE SYSTEM WHERE

TAXPAYERS CAN GET TAX

RETURNS AND OTHER FILINGS

FROM PREVIOUS YEARS.

THE I.R.S. SAYS THE

THIEVES ARE ORGANIZED

CRIME SYNDICATES.

OORIN HATCH BLASTED THE

I.R.S. AND SAYS THE I.R.S.

HAS BEEN WARNED REPEATEDLY

THAT ITS SECURITY SYSTEMS

AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH AGAINST

THE GROWING THREATS FROM

INTERNATIONAL HACKERS AND

DATA THIEVES.

> EACH YEAR DOZENS OF

WOMEN FROM POOR FAMILIES

ARE LURED TO THE WEST FOR

SHAM MARRIAGES,

PARTICULARLY IN EUROPE, SO

THEIR SO-CALLED HUSBANDS

CAN GET INTO AND WORK IN

THE EUROPEAN UNION.

AS CHARLENE AARON REPORTS,

IN A FORM OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING THAT LEAVES

MANY OF THE WOMEN WITH

NOTHING AND ARE FORCED

INTO PROSTITUTION.

Reporter: CLARA GREW

UP IN SLOVENIA.

SHE LEFT HOME FOR GREAT

BRITAIN TO MARRY A MAN SHE

HAD NEVER MET.

THE ARRANGED MARRIAGE

WOULD ALLOW THE PAKISTANI

BRIDE GROOM TO LIVE AND

WORK LEGALLY IN EUROPE.

UPON HER ARRIVAL IN THE

U.K., THE MAN TOOK HER

PASSPORT AND OTHER

DOCUMENTS, LEAVING HER

WITH NOTHING.

HE DIDN'T LET ME OUT

ANY TIME.

HE TOLD ME IT WAS NOT

POSSIBLE TO GO OUT THERE.

HE ALWAYS SAID THAT.

Reporter: THEN HER

HUSBAND TO BE DUMPED HER,

ALL ALONE.

EACH YEAR SCORES OF WOMEN

LIKE HER ARE LURED TO THE

WEST FOR MARRIAGE SHAMS,

SOMETHING THAT IS THAT ON

THE RISE AS BRITAIN

TIGHTENS ITS BORDERS AND

LAWMAKERS URGE FOR TOUGHER

IMMIGRATION LAWS.

THE PR PROSPECTED BRIDE

GROOMS ARE OFTEN ASIAN OR

AFRICAN, LIVING IN THE

E.U. ILLEGALLY OR ON

SHORT-TERM VISAS.

THE MEN ARE PROMISED JOBS

AND THAT THEY CAN STAY IN

THE COUNTRY WITHOUT FEAR

OF DEPORTATION.

MOST BRIDES GET PAID FOR

TRIPS TO COUNTRIES LIKE

BRITAIN, IRELAND, AND

GERMANY, NOT REALIZING IT

IS ALL A SCAM UNTIL THEY

ARRIVE.

THEY ARE OFTEN HELD

CAPTIVE UNTIL THE SIGNING

OF THEIR MARRIAGE PAPERS.

MANY END UP TRAPPED,

WITHOUT MONEY, IN A

FOREIGN COUNTRY.

OUR WORSE, USED FOR SEX

AND DRUG TRAFFICKING.

THE GOING RATE FOR A

FEMALE IS BETWEEN 3,000

AND 4,000 POUNDS, OF WHICH

THE FEMALE WILL SEE

VIRTUALLY NONE OF THAT.

SO THAT WOULD BE THE MONEY

THAT WE THINK HAS CHANGED

HANDS.

Reporter: MANY OF THE

BRIDES END UP IN BRITAIN.

WE HAVE INFORMATION

THAT IN THE RE ROXELLE AREA

THERE ARE UP TO 400 SHAM

MARRIAGES.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THERE

ARE 400 TRAFFICKED

VICTIMS, BUT CERTAINLY OF

THE 400, SOME HAVE BEEN

TRAFFICKED INTO THE

COUNTRY ILLEGALLY.

Reporter: ALLEN DOOR DOORE

SAYS POVERTY AND FEAR

DRIVES THEM TO SUCH

DESPERATION.

THE VICTIM DOESN'T WANT

TO DO THIS, BUT FEELS THEY

HAVE NO WAY OUT.

SO THEY WILL GO INTO THE

SHAM MARRIAGE THINKING

THEY HAVE NO CHOICE.

AND WHERE PEOPLE ARGUE AND

SAY I DON'T WANT TO DO

THIS, THAT'S WHERE THEY

USE ALL OF THE MEANS OF

CONTROL.

AND THAT'S WHERE THREATS

AGAINST THEMSELVES OR

THEIR FAMILY BACKGROUND IS

USED.

THAT'S A VERY POWERFUL WAY

OF CONTROLLING SOMEBODY.

IF YOU THINK YOUR FAMILY

BACK HOME, THE HOUSE IS

GOING TO BE SET ON FIRE,

IT IS A MASSIVE MEANS OF

CONTROLLING YOU.

AND PEOPLE TEND TO GO

ALONG WITH WHAT THE

TRAFFICKER WANTS THEM TO

DO.

Reporter: BELLA GOVA

EVENTUALLY RETURNED TO HER

HOME.

BUT SHE SAYS SHE IS

WILLING TO TAKE HER

CHANCES AGAIN FOR A CHANCE

AT A BETTER LIFE.

IT IS NOT GOOD AT ALL

FOR ME HERE.

I'D LIKE TO GO BACK TO

THAT CITY.

Reporter: DECISIONS

LIKE THAT MAKE THE BRITISH

CRACKDOWN ON THIS TYPE OF

HUMAN TRAFFICKING ALL THE

MORE DIFFICULT.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS,

CHARLENE.

IT HAS BEEN A MONTH SINCE

THAT DEVASTATING

EARTHQUAKE HIT NEPAL.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

NEPALESE ARE STILL WITHOUT

HOMES.

CBN DISASTER RELIEF IS

ALSO STILL ON THE SCENE TO

HELP SURVIVORS.

BUT NOW THERE IS ANOTHER

CONCERN: PROTECTING

NEPAL'S CHILDREN.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: ONE MONTH

AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE,

NEPALI HOMES ARE STILL IN

RUINS, AND LIVES ARE

SHATTERED.

THE PEOPLE ARE

STARVING.

AND THEY ARE BEGGING FOR

HELP.

Reporter: CBN

HUMANITARIAN AND DISASTER

RELIEF TEAMS ARE STILL IN

THE COUNTRY.

TRAVELLING LONG DISTANCES

UNDER DIFFICULT CONDITIONS

TO BRING FOOD, BLANKETS,

TARPS, WATER, AND OTHER

ITEMS TO SAVE NEPALI

LIVES.

SO FAR THEY HAVE DELIVERED

MORE THAN 100 TONS.

AND AFTER ALL OF THE

TARPS ARE DISTRIBUTED AND

THE TENTS AND THE FOOD AND

OTHER ITEMS TO HELP THE

PEOPLE IN THE SHORT TERM,

THERE WILL BE LONG-TERM

NEEDS.

THESE COMMUNITIES WILL

HAVE TO BE REBUILT BRICK

BY BRICK.

BUT IT IS JUST NOT

BUILDING THEM BY BRICKS.

IT IS REBUILDING LIVES.

TENSTENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE HAVE LOST LOVED

ONE.

SOME STILL FEAR ANOTHER

BIG EARTHQUAKE.

AND NOW THE SAFETY OF

NEPAL'S CHILDREN ARE A

CONCERN.

THERE ARE FEARS OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

CHRISTIAN GROUPS SPONSOR

HOMES LIKE THIS ONE IN

KATHMANDU, TO GET KIDS OFF

THE STREET.

BUT IN THE AFTERMATH OF

THE EARTHQUAKE, WITH MORE

THAN 8,000 DEAD AND

THOUSANDS MISSING,

COUNTLESS MORE PARENTLESS

AND IMPOVERISHED CHILDREN

ARE EXPECTED TO TAKE TO

THE STREETS.

DEFINITELY THERE WILL

BE LOTS OF HOMELESS

CHILDREN IN THE FUTURE.

AS IT WAS BEFORE, IT WILL

BE MORE.

Reporter: CONCERNS

ABOUT CHILD TRAFFICKING

CAUSED THE NEPALI

GOVERNMENT TO PLACE A

MORATORIUM ON

INTERNATIONAL ADOPTIONS

FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT

THREE MONTHS.

AND THE GOVERNMENT WILL

FACE A GREATER PRESSURE,

TO HOUSE HOMELESS AND

ORPHANED CHILDREN.

CBN IS PROMISING TO

REBUILD NEPALI COMMUNITIES

AND LIVES IN THE DAYS TO

COME.

GARY LANE, CENTS PER CBN NEWS,

KATHMANDU, NEPAL.

John: HE SAID IT

PERFECTING, REBUILDING

COMMUNITIES AND REBUILDING

LIVES.

Pat: IT IS THE

GREATEST TRAGEDY THEY HAVE

HAD IN EIGHT DECADES OR

SO.

IT IS A HORRIBLE THING.

THOSE PEOPLE ARE VERY

RESILIENT, VERY BRAVE, AND

COURAGEOUS.

IT IS SO NICE WE CAN HELP

THEM.

WE SENT 100 TONS OF

SUPPLIES, WHICH "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAS DELIVERED

INTO THAT AREA.

AND WE'RE STILL UP THERE

WORKING.

A LOT OF TIMES THE

DISASTER STRIKES AND THE

CAMERAS COME IN, AND

PEOPLE TAKE SOME BEAUTY

SHOTS AND THEN THEY GO

HOME.

THAT'S NOT THE WAY CBN

DOES IT.

WHEN "OPERATION BLESSING"

OR CBN COMES IN, THEY STAY

FOR A WHILE AND TRY TO

HELP PEOPLE.

SO IF YOU WANT TO HELP

THOSE POOR PEOPLE, ONE OF

THE THINGS TO DO IS TO

SEND A CONTRIBUTION TO CBN

INTERNATIONAL DISASTER

RELIEF FUND, CBN CENTER,

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIR.

AND YOVIRGINIA.

AND YOU CAN SPECIFY NEPAL

OR ANY OTHER AREAS YOU

WANT TO HELP.

AND IT CAN BE TEXAS, WITH

ALL OF THE STUFF THAT IS

GOING ON.

WE CAN'T STOP ALL OF THE

NATURAL DISASTERS THAT

TAKE PLACE IN THE WORLD,

BUT WER WE CAN DO WHAT WE CAN

TO HELP.

Wendy: AS WE HEAD

INTO ELECTION SEASON,

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE A LOT

OF CANDIDATES KISSING

BABIES, GIVING SPEECHES,

AND TRYING OUT THEIR

SPANISH.

LATINO E EVANGELICALS

WILL PLAY A ROLE IN

DETERMINING WHO IS IN THE

WHITE HOUSE.

Wendy: SO HOW DO THEY

PLAN ON WINNING THE

HISPANIC VOTE?

FIND OUT, NEXT.

Pat: WELL, THE

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS

ALMOST HERE.

THEY ARE SPENDING SO MUCH

MONEY.

THIS IS GOING TO BE THE

MOST EXPENSIVE ELECTION IN

HISTORY.

CANDIDATES ARE RAMPING UP

TO GET A BILLION-DOLLAR

AWARD CHEST FOR THIS

CANDIDATE, FOR THIS

PARTICULAR ELECTION.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE FIELD,

ESPECIALLY REPUBLICAN, IS

JUST JAMMED WITH

CANDIDATES.

BUT WHOEVER WANTS TO WIN

THE EVANGELICAL VOTE WILL

NEED TO ATTRACT A DIVERSE

GROUP OF VOTERS.

BECAUSE 25% OF EVANGELICAL

VOTERS ARE WHAT ARE

CONSIDERED MINORITIES,

ESPECIALLY HISPANIC.

AND THOSE NUMBERS ARE

GROWING.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US

THIS VERY INTERESTING

STORY.

GOVERNOR JEB BUSH.

[SPEAKING IN SPANISH

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: AS WHITE

HOUSE CONTENDERS BEGIN TO

TEST THE WATERS, THEY

REALIZE THEIR TARGET

VOTERS ARE CHANGING.

IN HOUSTON THIS MONTH, JEB

BUSH AND MIKE HUCKABEE

BOTH REACHED OUT TO A

GROUP WITH EMERGING CLOUT.

YOU CAN'T DENY THE FACT

THAT IT IS THE SINGLE

HIGHEST GROWING COMMUNITY

IN AMERICA.

Reporter: IT'S EARLY

IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL

RACE, BUT ALREADY G.O.P.

CANDIDATES ARE COURTING

LATINO EVANGELICALS.

ONE BIG REASON IS THEIR

GROWING NUMBERS.

IF I WAS RUNNING A

CAMPAIGN, I WOULD SAY TO

MY LEADER, WE NEED TO BE

THERE.

THERE IS NO QUESTION

THAT THEY ARE COURTING THE

NHCLC, AND THEY'RE

COURTING THE LATINO

COMMUNITY BECAUSE THEY

UNDERSTAND THIS IS A HUGE

CONSTITUENCY THAT CAN AND

FRANKLY WILL TURN

ELECTIONS.

Reporter: RIGHT NOW

70% OF THE ADULT

POPULATION IN THE U.S.

IDENTIFIES AS CHRISTIAN.

THE QUARTER BEING

EVANGELICAL.

11% OF THOSE ARE LATINO

EVANGELICALS.

AND AN EVEN LARGER

PERCENTAGE OF LATINOS MAKE

UP THE OVERALL CATHOLIC

NUMBER.

LATINO EVANGELICALS

WILL PLAY A SIGNIFICANT

ROLE IN DETERMINING WHO

OCCUPIES THE WHITE HOUSE

AFTER 2016, WITHOUT A

DOUBT.

Reporter: THE

ELECTORAL MAP IS ALSO

SIGNIFICANT.

IN THREE OF SEVEN SWING

STATES, LATINOS MAKE UP

MORE THAN 15% OF ELIGIBLE

VOTERS.

GRACIAS.

Reporter: IT IS NO

WONDER CANDIDATES ARE

WORKING ON THEIR SPANISH.

I DO NOT COME TO YOU

TONIGHT WITH THE ABILITY

TO SPEAK SPANISH, BUT I DO

SPEAK A COMMON LANGUAGE.

I SPEAK JESUS.

Reporter: THE

ORGANIZATION BEHIND THIS

EVENT, THE NATIONAL

HISPANIC CHRISTIAN

LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE,

BOASTS MORE THAN 40,000

MEMBER CHURCHES.

THEIR CHURCHES ARE

GROWING AT A RAPID PACE,

AND THEY ARE SPEAKING INTO

POLITICAL ISSUES AND

CULTURAL ISSUES MORE THAN

THEY DID IN THE PAST.

Reporter: FOR 2016,

THE HISPANIC CONFERENCE

WILL ENCOURAGE ITS

CHURCHES TO HOST VOTER

REGISTRATION DRIVES.

THEIR CONCERN,

TRADITIONALLY LOW VOTER

TURNOUT AMONG HISPANICS.

IT IS NOT PROPORTIONAL

TO WHERE WE SHOULD BE.

BUT IT IS A LOT MORE THAN

WHERE WE USED TO BE.

Reporter: MIKE

HUCKABEE TOLD CBN NEWS

THAT HE BELIEVES

CHRISTIANS SHOULD CONSIDER

CIVIL ENGAGEMENT TO BE A

RESPONSIBILITY.

HISTORICALLY, ONE OF

THE CHALLENGES IS GETTING

PEOPLE TO SAY IT MANAGES

TO BE INVOLVED IN THE

POLITICAL SPHERE.

Reporter: IF LATINOS

DO ENGAGE AND VOTE, THEY

COULD SHAPE ISSUES AND

INFLUENCE THE NATIONAL

CONVERSATION.

RESEARCH SHOWS EDUCATION

AND EMPLOYMENT ARE TOP

CONCERNS.

RODRIGUEZ SAYS LIFE,

MARRIAGE, AND RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY ALSO MATTER, AND

IMMIGRATION IS CRITICAL.

IT IS MORE ABOUT, MAN,

YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE IT

DIFFICULT FOR US AGAIN TO

VOTE FOR YOU IF YOU DON'T

PASS IMMIGRATION REFORM.

WE HAVE TO STAND UP AND

FIGHT.

Reporter: FAITH

LEADERS ALSO WARN THAT

ANTI-IMMIGRANT LANGUAGE IS

A TURNOFF FOR MANY.

HOW YOU ADDRESS IT IS A

BIG ISSUE.

Reporter: SO DON'T BE

SURPRISED IF THE 2016

CANDIDATES EAT A FEW MORE

TACOS, TALK ABOUT

IMMIGRATION REFORM, AND

FOCUS MORE ON FAITH.

WHAT IT MEANS, AND WHY IT

IS IMPORTANT.

REPORTING IN HOUSTON,

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

YOU KNOW, THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY HAS HAD TENURE

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

HISPANICS.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE HOW

THEY HAVE GONE ON THE

WRONG TRACK OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

AND ALL OF THIS SCREAMING

ABOUT WETBACKS AND PEOPLE

ARE TAKING AWAY ALL OF THE

JOBS.

IT MAY PLAY WELL TO SOME

CONSTITUENTS HERE IN

AMERICA, BUT IT HAS TURNED

OFF THE SPANISH.

WE NEED PEOPLE WHO ARE

PRO-FAMILY, PRO-FREE

ENTERPRISE, PRO-GROWTH,

AND PRO-NATIONAL SECURITY.

THAT'S THE WAY THOSE

PEOPLE ARE.

THEY'RE FAMILY FOLKS.

THEY LIKE THE CULTURE OF

LIFE.

THEY LIKE THEIR CHILDREN.

THEY WANT TO HAVE A GOOD

FUTURE FOR THEIR CHILDREN,

JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.

AND IF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY CAN'T SPEAK TO THOSE

ISSUES -- THE THING ABOUT

JEB BUSH, HE CAN.

AND OBVIOUSLY MARCO RUBIO,

WHO IS A CUBAN IMMIGRANT,

HE CAN SPEAK TO THE

HISPANIC PROBLEM.

THERE IS THE LATINO, WHICH

HAS MOSTLY TO DO WITH

MEXICO AND CENTRAL

AMERICA, AND HISPANIC,

WHICH PERHAPS TAKES IN

MORE OF THE CUBANS.

HOW THOSE TERMS MATCH, I'M

NOT SURE.

I DON'T THINK ANYBODY

KNOWS FOR SURE.

BUT IF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY WANTS TO WIN THE

NEXT ELECTION, IT HAS GOT

TO START MAKING OVERTURES

TOWARDS THE HISPANIC

COMMUNITY.

AND THEY'VE GOT TO DO IT

WITH GRACE AND

UNDERSTANDING.

APPARENTLY JEB BUSH HAS

GOT THE MESSAGE.

HE SPEAKS -- HE IS MARRIED

TO AN HISPANIC WOMAN, AND

THEY SPEAK SPANISH, AND HE

SPEAKS SPANISH, AND IT

MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

Wendy: FLORIDA HAS

GOT A TOUGH CHOICE.

THEY'VE GOT TWO

CANDIDATES, BOTH SPEAKING

SPANISH.

AND THE NATION HAS A TOUGH

CHOICE.

Pat: I THINK MARCO

RUBIO HAS BEEN

EXTRAORDINARY, BUT HE IS A

LITTLE YOUNG.

I DON'T KNOW HOW IT IS

GOING TO PLAY.

JEB BUSH, IN MY OPINION,

HE WRONG-FOOTED COMING OUT

WITH THIS COMMON CORE

EDUCATION.

HE SAID, I WANT TO

POSITION MYSELF FOR THE

GENERAL ELECTION, AND

THAT'S ALL WELL AND GOOD,

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO GET THE

VOTE OF THE PARTY FIRST.

HE HAS PUT THAT IN

JEOPARDY.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS?

Wendy: IT WILL BE FUN

TO WATCH.

COMING UP, DRUGS, PARTIES,

AND KICKBACKS ALL PAID

WITH TAX DOLLARS.

I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO

BUY WHAT I WANTED TO BUY.

I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO GO

WHERE I WANTED TO GO.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

PUT AN END TO HIS

CORRUPTION, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Pat: IF YOU MISSED IT

IN THE NEWS, APPARENTLY

YESTERDAY THE FEDS MOVED

IN TO A ARREST OFFICIALS

FROM THE INTERNATIONAL

FEDERATION OF SOCCER.

WE CALL IT SOCCER.

THEY CALL IT FÚTBOL.

IT IS REALLY MORE POPULAR

THAN ANY SUPPORT IN THE

WORLD.

IT IS A HUGE ENTERPRISE.

THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT

THE POSSIBILITY OF A SLUSH

FUND WITH AS OFTEN AS

$100 MILLION.

MORE WILL BE SEEN ON THAT.

WE'VE GOT SOMEBODY WHO IS

AT A MUCH LESSER LEVEL,

BUT HE WAS GETTING

KICKBACKS, TOO, AND HE GOT

BRIBES ON SHADY DEALS.

AND SOME OF YOUR TAX

DOLLARS ARE GOING TO LINE

SOMEBODY ELSE'S POCKET.

BILL RENDEL RAN SUCH A

SCHEME UNTIL HIS WHEELINGS

AND DEALINGS CAUGHT THE

EYE OF ANOTHER GOVERNMENT

AGENCY, THE F.B.I.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

HIS FAMILY STRUGGLED

FINANCIALLY, BILL RENDEL

HAD A HAPPY CHILDHOOD.

BUT A SIMPLE REQUEST FOR A

PAIR OF JEANS CHANGED

EVERYTHING.

LEVI'S BLUEJEANS WAS A

BIG THING WHEN I WAS

GROWING UP IN THE LATE

'70s.

THAT'S WHEN I WENT HOME

AND SAID, WHY CAN'T I HAVE

LEVI'S?

MOM BASICALLY TOLD ME,

THEY COST A WHOLE LOT MORE

MONEY THAN WHAT YOU WEAR.

THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED,

YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY WASN'T

THE SAME.

Reporter: FROM THAT

DAY ON, BILL SET HIS MIND

TO NEVER BEEN POOR AGAIN.

HE LATER GOT A JOB IN THE

ACCOUNT ASSESSOR'S OFFICE

AS A REAL ESTATE

APPRAISER.

I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO

BUY WHAT I WANTED TO BUY

AND GO WHERE I WANTED TO

GO.

I EVEN GOT TO THE POINT

WHERE I FELT ENTITLED TO

DO CERTAIN THINGS AND TO

RECEIVE CERTAIN THINGS.

Reporter: IN 2002, HE

BECAME THE COUNTY AS

ASSESSOR.

HE STARTED MAKING ILLEGAL

REAL ESTATE DEALS TO MAKE

KICKBACKS.

A GUY CAME TO ME AND

SAID, LOOK, I'VE GOT THIS

BUILDING FOR SALE.

DO YOU THINK THE COUNTY

WOULD BE INTERESTED?

FOR ME, IT WAS A $50,000

KICKBACK.

THAT WAS A LOT OF MONEY

FOR ME.

Reporter: BILL WAS

MARRIED WITH A DAUGHTER,

BUT IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE

HE STARTED LEADING A

DOUBLE LIFE.

SOME CO-WORKERS INTRODUCED

BILL TO METHAMPHETAMINES,

AND IMMEDIATELY THE DRUG

HAD HIM HOOKED.

COMMON SENSE WOULD TELL

YOU, THERE ARE TWO THINGS:

IT IS GOING TO HURT YOUR

BODY, AND IT IS AGAINST

THE LAW.

I THREW BOTH OF THOSE OUT

THE WINDOW THAT DAY, AND

IMMEDIATELY I LIKED IT.

AND WITHIN DAYS, I WAS

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW I

COULD MAKE MONEY OFF THIS

DRUG.

Reporter: BILL

STARTED USING HIS REAL

ESTATE KICKBACKS TO BUY

AND SELL DRUGS.

HE ALSO EMBRACED THE PARTY

LIFESTYLE THAT CAME WITH

THE DRUGS AND HAD SEVERAL

AFFAIRS.

I DIDN'T WANT TO GET

OLD.

I WANTED TO GET YOUNGER.

THIS POWERFUL DRUG MADE ME

FEEL YEARS AND YEARS

YOUNGER.

I WAS GOING FROM POINT "A"

TO POINT "B," AND IT WAS

ALL ABOUT ME.

Reporter: BUT

EVENTUALLY BILL WOULD HAVE

TO PAY FOR HIS DOUBLE

LIFE.

IN 2006 HIS WIFE DIVORCED

HIM.

AND TWO YEARS LATER, THE

F.B.I. KNOCKED ON HIS DOOR

WITH CHARGES FOR HIS

ILLEGAL DEALS AND DRUG

ACTIVITY.

I ENDED UP WITH A

40-COUNT INDICTMENT.

IT RANGED FROM CONSPIRACY

TO DISTRIBUTE COCAINE,

METHAMPHETAMINE, FAILURE

TO DISCLOSE FINANCIAL

TRANSACTIONS, TAKING A

KICKBACK ON THE BUILDING.

AND I WAS GUILTY OF ALL

40.

Reporter: FOR SEVERAL

MONTHS BILL HAD TO AWAIT

HIS SENTENCE.

AT THIS POINT IN TIME,

I HAD BEEN EXPOSED.

I'M EMBARRASSED.

I'M ASHAMED.

I'M HUMILIATED.

I'M SCARED.

I HAVE HURT EVERYBODY.

I REACHED OUT TO A FRIEND,

A PASTOR FRIEND.

AND THE FIRST THING HE

SAID WAS, I LOVE YOU.

YOU'VE GOT HARD TIMES

AHEAD, BUT, BILL, YOU'VE

GOT TO DO THE RIGHT THING.

HE SAID THE FIRST STEP IS

COMING TO CHURCH.

I HADN'T BEEN IN CHURCH IN

YEARS.

Reporter: BRAD SPENT

TIME WITH BILL, SPRAYING

AND STUDYING THE BIBLE.

I KNEW ABOUT JESUS.

I KNEW WHAT THE BIBLE

SAID.

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

I WENT TO BRAD AFTER

COUNSELLING, AFTER A LOT

OF PRAYER, AFTER ME

FINALLY OPEN THE WORD OF

GOD UP AND STARTING TO

READ IT AGAIN, AFTER YEARS

OF NOT OPENING A BIBLE,

AND I TOLD HIM I WANTED TO

BE PART OF THE CHURCH.

I WALKED DOWN ONE SUNDAY

MORNING AND PRAISED GOD.

THERE WERE PROBABLY 300,

400 PEOPLE THERE, AND I

ASKED TO BE A PART OF THAT

CHURCH, KNOWING THAT I WAS

GOING TO PRISON.

AND I'M WEEPING.

AND I LOOKING DOWN.

AND I ADDRESSED THEM AND

TOLD THEM I WAS GUILTY OF

EVERY CHARGE.

I'M 100% GUILTY.

AND I DROPPED DOWN.

AND THEY STOOD UP, AND

THEY'RE CLAPPING.

THAT'S THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

Reporter: THE SUNDAY

BEFORE LEAVING FOR PRISON,

BILL DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST.

I FELT AND KNEW IN MY

HEART THAT GOD HAD JUST

FORGIVEN ME FOR ALL OF THE

FILT ANFILTH AND SIN I HAD

WALLOWED AROUND IN FOR

FIVE OR SIX YEARS.

GOGOD FORGAVE ME.

Reporter: BILL SPENT

ALMOST FIVE YEARS IN

FEDERAL PRISON, BUT SPENT

TIME IN BIBLE CLASSES AND

CHURCH SERVICES.

TODAY HE IS THE FOUNDER OF

A NON-PROFIT CRISIS

INDUSTRY AIMED AT HELPING

PEOPLE IN HARD SITUATIONS.

HE SAYS IT IS THE MOST

REWARDING JOB HE HAS EVER

HAD.

I'M A DIFFERENT MAN,

AND I MAKE DIFFERENT

DECISIONS NOW.

I TALK DIFFERENT.

I WALK DIFFERENT.

I DO THINGS THAT I'VE

NEVER DONE.

AND I DO THEM IN THE NAME

OF JESUS CHRIST.

I DON'T DO THEM IN THE

NAME OF BILL RENDEL.

THAT'S A MIRACLE.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

BIBLE SAYS A BROKEN AND A

CONTRITE HEART THOU WILL

NOT DESPISE.

AND BILL RENDEL CAME

BEFORE THAT CHURCH BODY AS

A BROKEN AND CONTRITE MAN

AND SAID, I'M GUILTY.

THAT'S THE FIRST STEP

BEFORE GOD, I'M GUILTY.

LORD, I'M GUILTY.

I DID IT.

I'M NOT TRYING TO COVER

UP.

SO MANY PEOPLE TRY TO

COVER UP.

WELL, I'M TRYING TO HIDE.

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT ADAM

AND EVE WAY BACK IN THE

GARDEN OF EDEN.

THEY HEARD THE VOICE OF

THE LORD AND THEY HAD

SINNED, AND THEY TRIED TO

HIDE FROM GOD.

YOUR LIFE, STOP TRYING TO

HIDE IT.

YOU COME BEFORE THE LORD

AND YOU CONFESS.

IF YOU CONFESS YOUR SINS

AND FORSAKE THEM, YOU WILL

FIND MERCY.

YOU FORSAKE THEM AND --

YOU CONFESS THEM AND

FORSAKE THEM, AND YOU FIND

MERCY.

SO WHATEVER YOU DID -- IN

BILL'S CASE THERE WAS SOME

SECULAR PUNISHMENT THAT

WENT ALONG WITH THE

SPIRITUAL ASPECT OF IT.

GOD FORGAVE HIM.

HE WASHED THE SLATE CLEAN

THE MINUTE BILL CAME TO

HIM.

BUT HE STILL HAD TO PAY

THE PRICE.

IT WAS A PRETTY STIFF

SENTENCE THEY GAVE HIM FOR

DOING WHAT HE DID.

NEVERTHELESS, HE CAME OUT

OF IT AND HE IS STILL

ALIVE.

AND HE IS A FORGIVEN,

CHANGED MAN.

YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN.

DON'T RECOVER UP.

STOP HIDING.

COME BEFORE THE LORD.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE MADE A

SHOW OF THEM OPENLY,

TRIUMPHING IN HIS CROSS.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, WHOEVER

YOU ARE, RIGHT NOW LET'S

MAKE A SHOW OF IT OPENLY.

LET'S TRIUMPH IN THE CROSS

OF JESUS CHRIST.

THESE WORDS, PRAY WITH ME

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

JUST BOW YOUR HEAD AND

PRAY.

MEAN IT IN YOUR HEART, AND

WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO IN

YOUR LIFE.

FATHER -- THAT'S RIGHT,

PRAY WITH ME NOW.

LORD GOD, I COME TO YOU

AND I ASK YOUR

FORGIVENESS.

I COME AS A SINNER.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'VE DONE.

AND BEFORE YOU I CONFESS

THE THINGS I HAVE DONE IN

MY LIFE.

FORGIVE ME, LORD.

CLEANSE ME, I PRAY, LORD.

AND HEAL ME THAT I MIGHT

SERVE YOU FROM THIS MOMENT

ON.

I THANK YOU FOR

FORGIVENESS, AND I THANK

YOU FOR HEARING MY PRAYER.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH

ME, I WANT YOU TO DO

SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO GO TO YOUR

PHONE AND CALL IN.

AND THERE IS SOMEBODY ON

THE PHONE, A COUNSELLOR,

WHO LOVES YOU.

AND THEY HAVE MADE THE

SAME DECISION YOU HAVE.

AND THEY'LL BE THRILLED TO

HEAR ABOUT IT.

NOW, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING IF YOU PRAYED

WITH ME.

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO

DO NEXT.

IF ANYBODY IS IN CHRIST,

THE BIBLE SAYS, HE IS A

NEW CREATION.

OLD THINGS ARE PASSED

AWAY, AND OLD BECOMES NEW.

THIS WILL TELL YOU ABOUT

WHAT YOU JUST DID.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL

1-800-759-0700.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

HAVE YOU EVER WISHED YOU

CAN JUST THROW UP YOUR

HANDS AND START AGAIN?

THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU CAN.

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR JOHN

ACUFF WILL EXPLAIN WHEN WE

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

THE UNITED NATIONS SAYS

THE ISLAMIC TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION BOKO HARAM IS

USING MORE AND MORE

CHILDREN AS SUICIDE

BOMBERS.

IN NORTHEASTERN NIGERIA,

27 SUICIDE BOMBERS HAVE

ALREADY CARRIED OUT

ATTACKS THIS YEAR,

COMPARED TO 26 FOR ALL OF

LAST YEAR.

BOKO HARAM AB DUCTS

CHILDREN AND WOMEN WEEKLY

IN NIGERIA.

UNICEF BELIEVES THEY CARRY

OUT UP TO THREE-QUARTERS

OF ALL OF THE TERROR GROUP

SUICIDE BOMBINGS.

THE AGENCY IS CONCERNED

CHILDREN WILL BE VIEWED AS

POTENTIAL THREATS, PUTTING

THEM IN DANGER AND

JEOPARDIZING THEIR RETURN

HOME.

> TWO SOUTH SUDANESE

PASTORS COULD FACE THE

DEATH SENTENCE FOR SHARING

THEIR CHRISTIAN FAITH IN

NEIGHBORING SUDAN.

THEY HAVE BEEN CHARGED

WITH INCITING ORGANIZED

GROUPS AND OFFENDING

ISLAMIC BELIEFS, AS WELL

AS ESPIONAGE.

ONE OF THE PASTORS WAS

ARRESTED IN DECEMBER AFTER

GIVING A SERMON AT A

SUDANESE CHURCH, AND THE

OTHER IN JANUARY AFTER

INQUIRING ABOUT THE FIRST

ONE.

THEIR NEXT COURT DATE IS

THIS SUNDAY.

WELL, 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: WELL, HERE IS

THE BAD NEWS: 70% OF

AMERICANS SAY THEY HATE

THEIR JOBS OR FEEL

DISENGAGED.

MANY JUST CLOCK IN AND

CLOCK OUT AND CALL IT A

DAY.

AT LEAST THAT'S HOW JOHN

ACUFF FELT UNTIL HE CALLED

A DO-OVER.

I WORKED AT BIG

COMPANIES AND SMALL

COMPANIES.

I STARTED MY OWN AND RAN

IT INTO THE GROUND.

I FOUND MY DREAM JOB AND

LEFT IT.

ALONG THE WAY, I LEARNED

ONE BIG LESSON ABOUT WORK:

IT'S ON US.

GOOD JOB, DREAM JOB, BAD

JOB, NO JOB, THIS REMAINS

TRUE, ALTHOUGH IT IS

EASIER TO BLAME OTHERS FOR

THE ECONOMY.

OR A BOSS WHO DOESN'T GET

US.

THE REALITY IS THAT A

BETTER JOB BEGINS WITH

BUILDING A BETTER YOU.

WHAT IF YOU COULD CHANGE

THE WAY YOU LOOKED AT YOUR

JOB.

WHAT IF YOU CAN RESCUE

MONDAY.

WHAT IF YOU COULD GET

UNSTUCK?

WHAT IF YOU COULD CALL A

DO-OVER?

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

JOHN ACUFF JOINS US NOW.

HIS NEW BOOK IS CALLED

"DO-EVERY."

AND IT IS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME,

WENDY.

Wendy: YOU LEFT YOUR

DREAM JOB.

YOU WERE WORKING WITH DAVE

RAMSEY.

WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU

LEAVE YOUR DREAM JOB?

I KNOW I HAD ARRIVED.

I HAD NICE PANTS AND SPORT

COATS.

AND I WAS WEARING BELTS

CONSTANTLY.

IT WAS A GREAT JOB, BUT

WHEN IT IS TIME TO GO, IT

IS TIME TO GO.

Wendy: YOU JUST KNEW

AFTER THREE YEARS?

THERE WAS A SEASON

CHANGE.

AND WHEN GOD CALLS YOU

SOMEWHERE, EVEN IF IT

MIGHT NOT MAKE SENSE TO

PEOPLE ON THE OUTSIDE, YOU

HAVE TO LEAVE.

Wendy: WITHIN 24

HOURS, YOUR PHONE WAS

RINGING OFF THE HOOK.

WHAT HAPPENED?

WITHIN 24 HOURS, THIS

NETWORK OF FRIENDS AND

OPPORTUNITIES CAME AROUND.

IT DID NOT HAPPEN IN 24

HOURS.

IT WAS A PROCESS.

Wendy: YOU ATTRIBUTE

THIS TO SOMETHING CALLED A

CAREER SAVINGS ACCOUNT.

WHAT IS THAT?

IT IS BUILT OFF OF FOUR

INVESTMENTS: RELATIONSHIPS

PLUS SKILLS PLUS CHARACTER

TIMES HUSTLE.

MOST OF US SPEND 18 YEARS

GETTING READY FOR COLLEGE.

AND THEN WE GRADUATE AND

THE NEXT THING WE GET

READY FOR IS DEATH AND

TAXES.

WHAT IF WE COULD ACTUALLY

INVEST IN THE THINGS THAT

MATTER?

Wendy: HOW DO WE

REINVENT MONDAY?

THE SADDEST TIME FOR

AMERICANS IS SUNDAY AT

NOON BECAUSE THAT'S THE

FIRST TIME MONDAY COMES

INTO THE PICTURE.

PART OF HOW YOU REINVENT

IT, YOU CHANGE YOUR

ATTITUDE.

Wendy: EXCEPT FOR

CHRISTIANS, WHO HOPEFULLY

ARE IN CHURCH.

A LOT OF TIME PASTORS

SAY, I GET THEM FOR AN

HOUR, AND THEN WHEN THEY

HIT THEIR CAR, THEY THINK

OF MONDAY.

SO WHAT IF WE WERE ON

PURPOSE ABOUT OUR CAREERS.

Wendy: OUR WORK LIFE

IS WE GO TO SCHOOL, AND WE

MAJOR IN SOMETHING

HOPEFULLY WE'RE INTERESTED

IN, AND WE WORK 30, 40

YEARS, OR IF YOUR PAT,

FOREVER.

WHY DO PEOPLE STAY IN JOBS

THEY HATE, JOHN?

THERE IS A NUMBER OF

REASONS.

ONE IS FEAR.

I HAD A DENTAL HYGIENIST

TELL ME I CAN'T LOOK FOR

ANOTHER JOB.

THERE IS A LOT OF

UNEMPLOYED DENTAL HIG HIGH

HYGIENISTS.

THE AVERAGE 21-YEAR-OLD

PLAYS 10,000 HOURS OF

VIDEO GAMES BY THE TIME

THEY'RE 21.

IT IS ABOUT MAKING TIME

FOR THINGS THAT MATTER.

I SAY, IF YOU'RE GOING TO

SPEND 40 YEARS DOING IT, I

DARE YOU TO SPEND AN HOUR

THIS WEEK BEING ON PURPOSE

ABOUT, IS THIS THE RIGHT

JOB?

COULD I BE BETTER AT MY

CURRENT JOB?

IT IS NOT ABOUT HATING

YOUR JOB.

IT IS ABOUT GIVING THE

MOST TO WHERE YOU'RE

EMPLOYED.

Wendy: WHAT I TELL

YOUNG USUALLY JOURNALIST

STUDENTS, OR ANY YOUNG

PERSON, FOLLOW YOUR

PASSION.

DOES YOUR PASSION

EVENTUALLY LEAD TO MONEY?

I THINK IT CAN.

I THINK THE BIG THING AS

FAR AS FOLLOW YOUR PASSION

AND YOUR DREAM, GIVE IT

TIME.

GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE IS

A HUGE DO-OVER.

AND LEAVING THE MILITARY

IS A HUGE DO-OVER.

I ALWAYS TELL COLLEGE

GRADS, YOUR FIRST JOB

WON'T BE YOUR DREAM JOB.

IT'S YOUR FIRST JOB.

Wendy: HOW CAN PEOPLE

HANDLE THESE SITUATIONS

BECAUSE CHANGING A JOB IS

ONE OF THE MOST STRESSFUL

THINGS YOU CAN DO.

IT CAN BE REALLY

STRESSFUL.

ONE IS TO HAVE THE RIGHT

NETWORK OF FRIENDS.

YOU NEED FRIENDS IN YOUR

LIFE THAT WILL ASK YOU

HARD QUESTIONS.

YOU NEED A SMART FRIEND

THAT WILL SLOW YOU DOWN

AND SAY, YOU'RE PEOPLE

IMPULSIVE.

Wendy: IT IS NOT

ENOUGH TO BE BRILLIANT AND

HAVE SKILLS, YOU NEED TO

HAVE FRIENDS.

IT IS A COMBINATION.

RELATIONSHIPS GET YOU THE

FIRST GIG AND HUSTLING

GETS YOU EVERY GIG AFTER

THAT.

Wendy: THIS IS YOUR

FIFTH BOOK, SO WE KNOW

YOUR WRITING.

WHAT DID YOU DO AFTER YOU

LEFT?

I WORKED ON THIS BOOK.

I WROTE THIS BOOK BECAUSE

I NEEDED IT FIRST.

AND I TRAVELLED THE

COUNTRY TO SEE IF ANYONE

IS GOING THROUGH A

TRANSITION, AND PEOPLE

ARE.

I'M WRITING BOOKS.

I'M GOING TO COMPANIES TO

HELP THEM FIGURE OUT HOW

DO YOU HAVE FULFILLED

EMPLOYEES.

THEY PRODUCE BETTER WORK.

SO LET'S FIGURE THAT OUT.

I'M GOING TO NETWORKING

ORGANIZATIONS, AND IT HAS

BEEN A LOT OF FUN TO HELP

PEOPLE AROUND THE COUNTRY.

Wendy: EVEN WHEN

YOU'RE IN YOUR DREAM JOB,

SOMETIMES YOU CAN GET

STUCK.

HOW DO YOU GET OUT OF

THAT?

THE WAY YOU GET UNSTUCK

IS YOU LEARN SOMETHING

NEW.

SO SKILLS ARE THE HAMMER

THAT HELPS YOU

BREAKTHROUGH A CEILING.

Wendy: SO OLD DOGS

CAN LEARN NEW TRICKS --

NOT THAT I'M AN OLD DOG,

BUT WE CAN ALL FEEL LIKE

THAT.

FOR ME, I WRITE A BLOG.

AND I ASKED A ROOM FULL OF

HIGH SCHOOLERS, AND I

SAID, WHAT DO YOU USE?

THEY USE SNAPCHAT.

SO I HAVE TO SAY CONNECTED

TO THE TECHNOLOGY.

YOU HAVE TO CONTINUALLY

REINVENT YOURSELF IF YOU

DON'T WANT TO BECOME A

DINOSAUR.

Wendy: YOU ALMOST A

MILLION LIKES ON

Facebook AND A LOT OF

FOLLOWERS ON TWITTER, AND

THAT'S KIND OF IMPORTANT

NOW, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE

DOING WHAT YOU DO AND WHAT

I DO, AND IF YOU'RE IN THE

MEDIA, AND FOR A LOT OF

FOLKS.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR

EVERYBODY.

TODAY IS THE SMALLEST

SOCIAL MEDIA WILL EVER BE.

IT ONLY GETS BIGGER EVERY

DAY.

YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE A JOB

THAT DEPENDS ON SOCIAL

MEDIA NOW, BUT NEW JOB

STUDENTOPPORTUNITIES ARE GOING TO

HAPPEN VIA SOCIAL MEDIA.

Wendy: WHAT HAVE YOU

LEARNED ABOUT YOUR OWN

DO-OVERS THAT YOU CAN PASS

ON TO US?

THAT IT TAKES PATIENCE.

YOU NEED FRIENDS THAT WILL

ASK YOU HARD QUESTIONS.

LEADERS WHO CAN'T BE

QUESTIONED, END UP DOING

QUESTIONABLE THINGS.

Wendy: THIS IS THE

BEST CAREER BOOK EVER

WRITTEN, ACCORDING TO SETH

GODEN.

SO IF YOU'RE JUST STARTING

OUT OR YOU NEED A DO-OVER,

YOU NEED TO GET THIS.

IT IS ONE OF THE BOOKS YOU

SHOULD DEFINITELY READ

THIS YEAR.

IT IS CALLED "DO-OVER,

RESCUE MONDAY."

AND IT IS AVAILABLE IN

STORES NATIONWIDE.

JOHN, GREAT TO METER YOU.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME, WENDY.

Wendy: STILL TO COME,

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

ONE SAYS, "I CHEATED ON MY

SPOUSE AND NOW I'M SOBER.

DO I HAVE TO COME CLEAN."

WE'LL ANSWER THAT, SO

DON'T GO AWAY.

Wendy:WELL,WELCOMEBACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A VIEWER WRITES, "WHILE I

WAS LIVING UNDER A CLOUD

OF ALCOHOLISM, I WAS

UNFAITHFUL TO MY SPOUSE.

I'M SOBER NOW AND ASKED

GOD'S FORGIVENESS, I AM

WONDERING IF I CAN GET

THAT WITHOUT COMING CLEAN

TO MY SPOUSE AS IT WILL

TEAR MY FAMILY APART.

I HAVE NO DOUBT IT WOULD

END IN DIVORCE.

THERE ARE KIDS INVOLVED,

AND I HAVE TRULY

REPENTED."

Pat: THAT'S A

QUESTION REALLY BEFORE THE

LORD.

THAT YOU AND GOD HAVE GOT

TO ANSWER.

I REALLY BELIEVE IN THIS

CASE YOU CAN SAY YOU WERE

MENTALLY IMPAIRED.

YOU WERE WERE UNDER A

CLOUD OF ALCOHOLISM.

YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHAT YOU

WERE DOING.

SO YOU STUMBLED INTO SOME

KIND OF SEXUAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH SOME

OTHER WOMAN AND NOW YOU'RE

OUT OF IT.

AND YOU'RE SORRY AND YOU

WISH YOU NEVER HAPPENED.

I DON'T SEE WHY YOU NEED

TO GO AND TELL YOUR WIFE.

I REALLY DON'T.

YOU SAID WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN.

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO TEAR

YOUR MARRIAGE APART?

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO MESS

UP YOUR CHILDREN?

WHY DON'T YOU DO

EVERYTHING YOU POSSIBLY

CAN TO SHOW YOUR WIFE THAT

YOU LOVE HER AND DON'T

MAKE A BIG DEAL OF IT.

I THINK THAT WOULD BE

BETTER.

BUT THERE MIGHT BE SOME

FOLKS WHO FEEL

DIFFERENTLY.

IN THIS CASE, I JUST THINK

IT IS BETTER TO SAY, ALL

RIGHT, THAT'S UNDER THE

BLOOD.

AND THE LORD HAS FORGIVEN

ME AND I'M GOING TO GET ON

WITH MY LIFE.

Wendy: THIS ONE SAYS,

"NO ONE EVER WRITES ABOUT

THE SUBJECT, AND I HOPE

YOU CAN GIVE ME SOME

ADVICE WHO WORKS AND WHO'S

HUSBAND DOESN'T WORK.

I AM NOT ALONE, I KNOW

THERE ARE OTHER WIVES WHO

HAVE HUSBANDS WANT TO

WRITE BOOKS, BUT OFFER NO

PRACTICALITY TO FAMILY AND

DO NOTHING TO PAY THE

BILLS.

MY HUSBAND IS A BELIEVER,

BUT HAS TOLD ME HE WILL

WORK WHEN HE IS READY.

HE BELIEVES HE SHOULD

REMAIN HOME WHILE I

SUPPORT HIM.

IN 25 YEARS, HE HAS ONLY

WORKED TWO AND A HALF

YEARS, PAT."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

IF ANY MAN WILL NOT

SUPPORT HIS OWN, HE IS

WORSE THAN AND I INFIDEL.

THIS GUY IS A BUM.

HE IS A FREE-LOADING BUM.

AND YOU ARE, IN A SENSE --

Wendy: AN

ACCCOMPLICE.

Pat: -- AN

ACCCOMPLICE.

YOU'RE ENABLING HIM TO DO

THIS STUFF.

I WOULD SAY, LOOK,

CHARLIE, THE FREE RIDE IS

OVER.

YOU EITHER GET A JOB AND

GET SOME MONEY COMING IN

OR YOU'RE OUT OF HERE.

I WOULD START LEGAL

PROCEEDINGS AS SOON AS YOU

COULD TO GET A DEGREE OF

SEPARATION.

IT DOESN'YOU DON'T HAVE TO

NECESSARILY DIVORCE HIM,

BUT GET A LEGAL DECREE IN

THE GROUNDS OF

NON-SUPPORT.

A HUSBAND SHOULD SUPPORT

HIS WIFE.

AND IF ANY MAN WILL NOT

WORK, THE BIBLE SAYS, LET

HIM NOT EAT.

THE BIBLE ISN'T MUSHY

AGAPE STUFF.

IF YOU DON'T WORK, YOU

DON'T EAT.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

SO TAKE HIM OFF THE GRAVY

TRAIN.

YOU'RE PAYING THE BILLS.

IT MAKES YOU SICK AT YOUR

STOMACH TO HEAR SOMETHING

LIKE THAT.

Wendy: 25 YEARS, GOD

BLESS HER.

Pat: HE IS A

FREE-LOADING BUM.

CALL IT WHAT IT IS.

Wendy: YOU CALLED IT.

MELINDA WRITES, "IT SAYS

IN THE BIBLE TO FORGIVE

OTHERS.

DO YOU HAVE TO GO TO THEM

FACE TO FACE, OR CAN YOU

FORGIVE THEM IN YOUR

HEART?"

Pat: HERE IS WHAT

JESUS SAID.

YOU WANT ME TO QUOTE HIM,

HE IS THE AUTHORITY.

HE SAYS, WHEN YOU COME TO

OFFER YOUR GIFT AT THE

ALTER AND YOU REMEMBER

THAT SOMEBODY HAS GOT

OUGHT AGAINST YOU, LEAVE

YOUR GIFT AT THE ALTER AND

GO TO THAT ONE AND MAKE

THINGS RIGHT.

YOU SEE, IF SOMEBODY IS

OUT THERE THAT HATES YOU

AND HE WANTS TO KILL YOU

AND HURT YOU, AND HE IS

JUST ANGRY WITH YOU,

YOU'RE ASKING FOR TROUBLE

CONTINUOUSLY.

SO YOU DO HAVE TO GO?

THAT KIND OF THING IS

IMPORTANT.

SOMEBODY HAS OUGHT AGAINST

YOU, GO TO THAT ONE WERE.

THAT'S THE RULE.

SO YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO

THEM.

SO THE ANSWER IN THAT CASE

IS YES.

Wendy: PATRICIA SAYS,

"I THINK MY DAUGHTER IS

POSSESSED BY A DEMON.

SHE IS IN JAIL, AND I

CAN'T EVEN STAND TO BE

AROUND HER LONG ENOUGH TO

GO VISIT HER.

DO YOU HAVE TO PHYSICALLY

TOUCH THEM OR BE AROUND

THEM TO CAST OUT A DEMON

OR CAN I PRAY IT OUT OF

THEM FROM AFAR?"

Pat: IT DEPENDS HOW

GOOD YOU.

YES, YOU CAN PRAY IT FROM

AFAR.

BUT I THINK YOU OUGHT TO

GET A GROUP TOGETHER AND

SEE THAT DAUGHTER.

BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVE

AN EXORCISM.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE'S

GOT.

BUT THE LAST THING YOU

WANT TO DO IS GET TOGETHER

AND START SAYING THERE IS

POWER IN THE BLOOD.

YOU DON'T SERENADE DEMONS.

YOU COMMAND THEM IN THE

NAME OF JESUS TO LEAVE.

I THINK THAT DOING THAT

LONG-RANGE, YOU SEE THAT A

MAN CAME TO HIM AND FELL

AT HIS FEET AND THE DEMONS

WERE TALKING TO JESUS --

SHE IS IN JAIL.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE

JAILERS WOULD ALLOW YOU TO

HAVE A LITTLE INTERCESSORY

DELIVERANCE.

Wendy: IF SHE CAN GET

ENOUGH TIME WITH HER, SHE

COULD SAY IT REAL QUICK.

Pat: YOU NEED PRAYER.

I HAD A DEMON SAY, YOU

CAN'T HAVE HER, SHE IS

MINE.

AND I SAID, NO, DEMON, YOU

CAN'T.

SOMETIMES THEY'LL TALK TO

YOU AND YOU HAVE TO

RESPOND.

HOW COME SHE HAS GOT THE

DEMON?

WHAT DID SHE DO TO GET

POSSESSED?

YOU NEED TO LOOK INTO

THAT.

AND YOU ALSO NEED TO MAKE

SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE

TALKING ABOUT, THAT SHE

HASN'T GOT SOME MENTAL

ILLNESS THAT NEEDS

PSYCHIATRIC CARE OR SOME

CHEMICAL INTERVENTION TO

KEEP HER SANE.

BE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

BEFORE YOU START CASTING

OUT DEMONS THAT MAY NOT BE

THERE.

Wendy: SUSAN WRITES,

"IF THE EVENTS WE HEAR IN

THE NEWS ARE LEADING UP TO

CHRIST'S RETURN, SHOULDN'T

WE BE EXCITED?"

Pat: WELL, YOU READ

IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS THE

DAY OF THE LORD IS A DAY

OF DARKNESS AND BLACKNESS

AND GLOOM.

THE DAY OF THE LORD IS NOT

A HAPPY TIME.

THE DAY OF THE LORD IS

JUST GOING TO BE HORRIBLE.

AND YOU SAY, JESUS IS

GOING TO COME AND RAPTURE

ME, YES, BUT IMMEDIATELY

AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF

THOSE DAYS, THEN YOU'LL

SEE THE SON IN HEAVEN.

THERE WON'T BE ANYBODY

ALIVE ON THE EARTH, SO

THAT'S NO HAPPY TIME.

YOU'RE NOT ALL SINGING

SONGS AND SAYING KUMBAYA.

I THINK IT IS AN ASTEROID

HIT ON THE EARTH,

ULTIMATELY SOMETHING LIKE

THAT WILL HAPPEN.

PEOPLE WON'T HAVE ENOUGH

FOOD TO EAT AND PEOPLE

WILL BE DYING BY THE

THOUSANDS.

IT WILL BE VERY

UNPLEASANT.

BUT THE FACT HE IS COMING

TO TAKE US TO BE WITH HIM

IS THE GLORIOUS PART.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO THAT

BECAUSE WE WILL BE WITH

THE LORD.

BUT THE COMING OF THE

LORD -- READ THE BIBLE,

THE DAY OF THE LORD IS A

DAY OF DARKNESS AND GLOOM.

IT SAYS IT IN THE BIBLE.

I'M JUST QUOTING WHAT IS

IN THERE.

Wendy: JUST SAYING IT

LIKE IT IS.

THANK YOU, PAT.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

FROM PSALMS 34: "THOSE WHO

SEEK THE LORD SHALL NOT

LACK ANY GOOD THING."

TOMORROW, GLOBE-TROTTING

ADVENTURER WHO MET THE

POPE, DANCED WITH RABBIS

AND WALKED ON COALS.

WHAT KIND OF A PERSON IS

THAT?

HE WILL BE HERE ON THIS

SET TELLING YOU ABOUT ALL

OF THOSE SCREWY THINGS HE

DID.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
