Wendy: HE'S THE MOST

FAMOUS DOC IN DAYTIME

TALK.

NOW DR. OZ IS LAUNCH,

"FAITHFUL FRIDAYS."

PEOPLE IN FRONT OF ME

WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE MADE

IT PULLED THROUGH.

Wendy: HEAR HIS R.X.

FOR THE BODY AND SOUL.

THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN

EXPLAIN THAT.

Wendy: AND THEN...ON

STAGE WITH HARRY CONICK,

JR.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE

PEOPLE HAPPY FOR AN HOUR.

Wendy: THE ACTOR,

SINGER, AND ENTERTAINER

OPENS UP ABOUT THE BIGGEST

JOB IN LIFE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Wendy: WELCOME,

EVERYONE TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THEY CAN'T WIN, BUT

DEMOCRATS IN THE SENATE

ARE GOING TO KEEP FIGHTING

AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

CABINET NOMINEES.

AFTER THEY FAILED TO STOP

HIS CHOICE FOR SECRETARY

OF EDUCATION, BETSY

DeVOS.

AND NOW THE DEMOCRATS HAVE

TURNED THEIR FIRE ON THE

PRESIDENT'S PICK FOR

ATTORNEY-GENERAL, JEFF

SESSIONS.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE

REPUBLICANS INVOKED A RULE

TO SILENCE SENATOR

ELIZABETH WARREN.

SHE READ AN OPPOSITION

LETTER FROM MARTIN LUTHER

KING, JR.'S WIDOW, LORETTA

SCOTT KING FROM THREE

DECADES AGO.

THIS IS A REMINDER, NOT

WHAT YOU JUST SHARED;

HOWEVER WHAT YOU STATEDED

IS THAT A SITTING SENATOR

IS A DISGRACE TO THE

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.

MR. PRESIDENT, THE

SENATOR IS IMPUGNING THE

MOTIVES AND COLLEAGUE FROM

ALABAMA AS WARNED BY THE

CHAIR.

SENATOR WARREN SAID,

QUOTE, "SENATOR SESSIONS

HAS USED THE AWESOME POWER

OF HIS OFFICE TO CHILL THE

FREE EXERCISE OF THE VOTE

BY BLACK CITIZENS."

MR. PRESIDENT, I'M

SURPRISED THAT THE WORDS

OF CORETTA SCOTT KING ARE

NOT SUITABLE FOR DEBATE IN

THE UNITED STATES SENATE.

I ASK LEAVE OF THE SENATE

TO CONTINUE MY REMARKS.

Reporter: WARREN

LATER FINISHED HER SPEECH

ON Facebook.

THE FIGHT OVER SESSIONS

COMES AFTER PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S NOMINEE BETSY

DeVOS WAS CONFIRMED

AFTER A LONG BATTLE.

A BATTLE THAT RESULTED IN

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE

BREAKING A 50/50 TIE IN

THE SENATE.

NEVER BEFORE HAS A VICE

PRESIDENT BEEN CALLED UPON

TO CAST A DIE-BREAKING

VOTE FOR A CABINET

NOMINEE.

WHEN I CAST MY FIRST VOTE

IN THE UNITED STATES

SENATE, THOUGH, I WASN'T

JUST VOTING FOR YOU.

HAVING SEEN YOUR DEVOTION

TO IMPROVING THE QUALITY

OF EDUCATION FOR SOME OF

OUR MOST VULNERABLE

CHILDREN ACROSS THE NATION

FOR SO MANY YEARS, I WAS

ALSO CASTING A VOTE FOR

AMERICA'S CHILDREN.

AND I CAN TELL YOU, MY

VOTE FOR BETSY DeVOS WAS

THE EASIEST VOTE I EVER

CAST.

Reporter: OPPONENTS

WHO CRITICIZED DeVOS FOR

HER LACK OF EXPERIENCE IN

PUBLIC EDUCATION HAVE

PROMISEDED TO KEEP UP

THEIR OPPOSITION TO HER

EVEN AFTER SHE TAKES

OFFICE.

REPUBLICANS AND

CONSERVATIVES BLASTED THEM

FOR VOTING FOR THE

TEACHERS' UNIONS.

THE SENATE IS EXPECTED TO

VOTE ON JEFF SESSIONS'

NOMINATION TONIGHT, AND

THEN ON TOM PRICE AND THEN

STEVEN MNUCHIN LATER IN

THE WEEK.

IT IS TIME TO GET OVER

THIS ELECTION.

LET THIS ADMINISTRATION

GET UP AND GET RUNNING.

WE'LL GET THROUGH ALL OF

THESE NOMINATIONS.

IT IS TAKING LONGER THAN

IT SHOULD, BUT WE'LL GET

THROUGH ALL OF THEM,

SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.

Reporter: MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: IT HAS BEEN

VICTORY AFTER VICTORY FOR

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THIS

ADMINISTRATION SO FAR.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS

WITH SENATOR JEFF

SESSIONS.

> IN OTHER NEWS, FEDERAL

JUDGES ON THE NINTH

CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS

HAVE TAKEN ON PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S TEMPORARY

IMMIGRATION ORDER.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: THE PRESIDENT

TOOK THAT ACTION TO MAKE

GOOD O ON A KEY PROMISE HE

MADE ON THE CAMPAIGN

TRAIL, BUT AS JENNIFER

WISHON REPORTS, THE LEGAL

BATTLE IS FAR FROM OVER.

Jennifer: AMERICANS

SEEM TO EITHER LOVE OR

HATE PRESIDENT DONALD

TRUMP'S EXECUTIVE ACTION

THAT KEEPS PEOPLE FROM

SEVEN MUSLIM MAJORITY

NATIONS FROM VISITING THE

U.S.

THE JUDGES ADDRESSED

WHETHER OR NOT THE BLOCK

ON THE PRESIDENT'S

EXECUTIVE ORDER SHOULD BE

LIFTED.

A HEARING ON THE LEGALITY

OF THE EXECUTIVE ORDER IS

STILL TO COME, AND THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FEELS

CONFIDENT THE LAW IS ON

THEIR SIDE.

IT SAYS, QUOTE,

"WHENEVER THE PRESIDENT

FINDS THAT THE ENTRY OF

ANY ALIENS OR OF ANY CLASS

OF ALIENS INTO THE UNITED

STATES WOULD BE

DETRIMENTAL TO THE

INTERESTS OF THE UNITED

STATES, HE MADE BY

PROCLAMATION SUSPEND THE

ENTRY OF ALL ALIENS OR ANY

CLASS OF ALIENS AS

IMMIGRANTS OR

NON-IMMIGRANTS, OR IMPOSE

ANY RESTRICTIONS HE MAY

DEEM APPROPRIATE."

Reporter: JOHN KELLEY

TOLD A HOUSE COMMITTEE IN

HINDSIGHT, HE SHOULD HAVE

DELAYED IMPLEMENTING THE

ORDER TO BRIEF CONGRESS ON

ANY DETAILS.

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY

PROOF AT THIS POINT?

NOT UNTIL THE BOOM.

NOT UNTIL WHAT?

NOT UNTIL THEY ACTUALLY

BLOW SOMETHING UP OR GO

INTO A MALL AND KILL

PEOPLE.

WE WON'T KNOW UNTIL THEN.

Reporter: POCKETS OF

PROTESTS CONTINUE, THIS

ONE IN HOUSTON.

WE WANT TO LET THE

WORLD KNOW THAT THIS

COUNTRY WELCOMES MUSLIMS.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO STAND

FOR A BAN.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP TOLD A GROUP OF

VISITING SHERIFFS THAT A

BAN ON IMMIGRANTS FROM

CERTAIN COUNTRIES IS JUST

COMMON SENSE.

President Trump: YOU

REMEMBER ISIS SAID, WE ARE

GOING TO INFILTRATE THE

UNITED STATES AND OTHER

COUNTRIES THROUGH THE

MIGRATION.

AND THEN WE'RE NOT ALLOWED

TO BE TOUGH ON THE PEOPLE

COMING IN?

Reporter: IF THE

EXECUTIVE ORDER ENDS UP AT

THE SUPREME COURT, IT IS

NOT A GUARANTEE THE COURT

WOULD DEADLOCK.

JUSTICE ANTHONY KENNEDY

COULD UPHOLD THE

PRESIDENT'S ORDER.

AND JUDGE NEIL GORSUCH

COULD ALSO FIND HIMSELF

WEIGHING IN ON ANY

DECISION.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

John: WENDY, WE'LL

SEND IT BACK TO YOU.

Wendy: THANK YOU.

THIS OPPOSITION TO THE

MUSLIM IMMIGRATION IS SO

INTENSE.

PAT IS HERE NOW.

PAT, DID YOU EVER

ANTICIPATE WE WOULD EVER

SEE THIS?

Pat: NO.

NO.

THE PRESIDENT SHOULD I

GONE FOR THE TAX CUT.

THIS THING IS A

DISTRACTION.

WENDY, THERE WERE PEOPLE

ON THE PAYROLL IN

NOVEMBER.

I MENTIONED IT YESTERDAY,

AND I'LL SAY IT AGAIN,

THEY WERE ON THE PAYROLL

IN NOVEMBER.

THEY ALREADY HIRED

DEMONSTRATORS, AND THEY'RE

STILL PAYING THEM TO

DEMONSTRATE.

Wendy: THE DEMOCRATS

OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED OF

THAT.

Pat: OF COURSE THEY

SHOULD BE ASHAMED.

BUT THE PRESIDENT HAS

CERTAIN AUTHORITY TO DO

THIS.

UNFORTUNATELY, HE HAS

HIMSELF STUCK IN THIS TAR

BABY THING.

AND HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN

GETTING TAX CUTS.

GETTING HIS CABINET IN AND

GETTING TAX CUTS.

AND THIS IS A DISTRACTION.

I DON'T THINK THE PEOPLE

UNDERSTAND IT, AND NOBODY

UNDERSTANDS IT.

AND WE'RE NOT REALLY SURE

WHAT IT ALL MEANS.

BUT IT SHOULDN'T BE THAT

THE SUPREME COURT IS

DECIDING IF THE PRESIDENT

HAS THE POWER TO KEEP

ALIENS OUT OF THE

COUNTRY -- OF COURSE HE

DOES.

John: IN EASTERN NEW

ORLEANS, IT IS CONSIDERED

A DISASTER ZONE AFTER

SEVERAL TORNADOES BLASTED

THROUGH SEVERAL PARISHES.

IT FLIPPED ROOFS FROM

HOMES AND DESTROYED

BUSINESSES.

AT LEAST 40 PEOPLE WERE

INJURED.

THE WORST DAMAGE WAS IN

NEW ORLEANS' NINTH WARD

WHICH WAS DAMAGED BY

HURRICANE KATRINA IN 2005.

YOU'RE IN A WIDE OPEN

AREA RIGHT HERE, SO THE

WINDS HAVE REALLY NOTHING

TO STOP THEM.

BUT IN TOWN, YOU KNOW, YOU

HAVE A LOT OF OLDER

HOUSES.

AND THEY HAVE TIN ROOFS.

AND YOU WOULD HAVE HAD

PLENTY OF PLENTY OF PREJEC

PROJECTILES FLYING THROUGH

TOWN.

THE GOVERNOR SAID THERE

HAS BEEN EXTENSIVE DAMAGE,

BUT, QUOTE, "THE LORD HAS

BLESSED US WITHOUT A

SINGLE FATALITY AT THIS

TIME."

> ONE OF THE HEALTH HEALTHIEST

DIETS FOR YOUR HEALTH IS

THINGS THAT GROW.

Lorie: THE

MEDITERRANEAN DIET SCORES

HIGH MARKS, COLORFUL

VEGETABLES AND FRUITS

SERVE AS THE FOUNDATION OF

THE DIET.

LEAFY GREENS, LIKE

SPINACH, KALE AND THE REST

OF THE RAINBOW.

PEPPERS, CARROTS,

EGGPLANT, TE TOMATOES AND

BLEU.

LEGUMES ARE ON IT, AND

WHOLE GRAINS, LIKE

OLD-FASHIONED OATS.

OLIVE OIL IS A KEY, AS ARE

NUTS AND SEEDS.

THE NON-PLANT FOODS

INCLUDE FISH, SOME DAIRY,

LIKE UNSWEETENED YOGURT

AND CHEESE, AND A LITTLE

POULTRY, LIKE CHICKEN.

NOTICEABLY MISSING ARE

SUGARS AND PROCESSED

GRAINS, WHICH ARE IN MOST

PACKAGED FOODS.

ALSO MISSING, BEEF AND

PORK.

A PANEL OF HEALTH EXPERTS

EXAMINED 40 DIFFERENT

DIETS FOR WEIGHT LOSS,

PREVENTING DIABETES, AND

KEEPING YOUR HEART

HEALTHY.

THE TOP FIVE DIETS WERE

ALL PLANT-BASED, LIKE THE

MEDITERRANEAN DIET.

WHEN IT COMES TO

PREVENTING STROKE AND

ALZHEIMER'S, THE MEDICAL

JOURNAL NEUROLOGY FOLLOWED

400 PEOPLE IN THEIR 70s

AND FOUND THE PEOPLE LEAST

LIKELY TO LOSE BRAIN

VOLUME WERE THOSE WHO

FOLLOWED THE MEDITERRANEAN

DIET.

AND A DIFFERENT STUDY

FOUND THAT OLDER PEOPLE

WHO ATE THAT DIET HAD

BRAINS THAT WERE FIVE

YEARS YOUNGER THAN THEIR

ACTUAL AGE.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS, LORI.

PAT, SOME HEALTHY EATING

TIPS.

Pat: I DO IT.

I DO IT.

THAT'S WHAT I EAT.

I'M NOT GOING TO EAT THAT

OTHER STUFF.

Wendy: THAT LOOKED SO

DELICIOUS, DIDN'T IT?

Pat: IT IS DELICIOUS.

I HAD A DOCTOR WITH THE

SOUTH BEACH DIET AND THE

MEDITERRANEAN DIET, AND HE

IS SUCH A NICE GUY, AND

WHAT HE SAID IS ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT.

DO YOU EAT THAT STUFF?

Wendy: AS MUCH AS I

CAN.

I'VE BEEN DOING MY GREEN

DRINK AGAIN.

Pat: I HAVE SOME

GREEN POWDER --

Wendy: I HAD SOME

GREEN POWDER, LIKE BARLEY,

ANBARLEY --

Pat: IMAGINE

SHRINKING YOUR BRAIN BY

FIVE YEARS ON ACCOUNT OF

EATING ALL OF THAT STUFF.

IF YOU EAT CAKES AND PIE

AND MEAT, AND ICE CREAM,

AND YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS?

IT SHRINKS YOUR BRAIN.

Wendy: LIKE IN THE

BOOK OF DANIEL.

HE SAID, DON'T EAT THE

KING'S FOOD.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

WENDY, WHAT IS NEXT?

Wendy: WE TAKE YOU

BEHIND THE SCENES OF A NEW

SEGMENT ON THE DR. OZ

SHOW, AND ITS CALLED

"FAITHFUL FRIDAY".

> I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE IN

FRONT OF ME WHO SHOULD NOT

HAVE MADE IT, AND THEY

PULL THROUGH.

IT REINFORCES MY FAITH.

Wendy: WE'LL HAVE

MORE FROM DR. OZ AND HIS

NEW TEAM OF POWER

PREACHERS.

Pat: DOCTOR OZ IS ONE

OF THE MOST FAMOUS DOCTORS

IN THE WORLD.

MEHMET OZ, HE WAS RAISED

AS A SUFI MUSLIM.

HE IS VERY ATTRACTED TO

THE TEACHINGS OF THE

SWEDEN BOARD.

HE IS HIGHLY SPIRITUAL,

AND YET HE IS A MUSLIM BY

TRAINING AND BACKGROUND.

BUT HE HAS VERY MUCH TAKEN

TO THE CHRISTIAN PEOPLE HE

HAS HAD ON HIS PROGRAM.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO

SHOW NEXT, THESE PEOPLE HE

IS FEATURING ON HIS SHOW.

BUT HE IS PROBABLY THE

MOST INFLUENTIAL MEDICAL

MAN IN THE WHOLE WORLD

RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: AND HE IS

STILL A PRACTICING MUSLIM.

Pat: A PRACTICING

MUSLIM, AND IT WAS THE

SUFI BRANCH.

BUT HE IS VERY TAKEN BY

THE PEOPLE HE IS

DISCUSSING.

Wendy: WE'LL HAVE

THAT STORY WHEN WE COME

BACK.

STAY TUNED.

Pat: WELL, MEDICAL

RESEARCH SHOWS THAT FAITH

CAN HAVE A STRONG EFFECT AFFECT

ON YOUR HEALTH.

AND ONE OF AMERICA'S

FAVORITE DOCTORS WANTS TO

LOOK DEEPER AT THIS

CONNECTION.

AND HE IS TURNING TO

CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP TO

HELP HIM.

DR. MEHMET OZ TELLS OUR

EFREM GRAHAM WHY HIS TALK

SHOW WILL FOCUS ON FAITH

EVERY FRIDAY FOR THIS

ENTIRE MONTH.

I CAN'T GET MY HEAD

AROUND THAT.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO

SKEPTICS ABOUT THIS ISSUE.

Reporter: MILLIONS

TURN TO DR. OZ EACH DAY.

HE IS KNOWN FOR MAKING

COMPLICATED HEALTH ISSUES

EASIER TO UNDERSTAND.

I HAVE MEDICAL RECORDS

THAT SHOW SHE SHOULDN'T

HAVE SURVIVED.

Reporter: ON HIS

DAYTIME TALK SHOW AND IN

HIS ENDLESS STRING OF

BEST-SELLING BOOKS.

THIS MONTH, DR. OZ CHANGES

HATS TO ASK THE QUESTIONS,

BIG QUESTIONS, ABOUT

FAITH.

FOR MANY OF US, THESE

ARE THE MOST URGENT

QUESTIONS WE FACE IN OUR

TIMES HERE ON EARTH.

ALL THIS MONTH WE'LL BE

SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS ON

"FAITH FRIDAYS."

> FROM A SPIRITUAL POINT

OF VIEW, WHAT IS GOING ON?

Reporter: HE TEAMS UP

WITH DEVON FRANKLIN.

THE TWO SPEND A LOT OF

TIME TALKING ABOUT FAITH

AFTER ONE OF DEVON'S FIRST

APPEARANCES ON THE SHOW.

MY MOTHER-IN-LAW IS A

MINISTER.

I WAS THINKING ABOUT HOW

POWERFUL THIS WAS.

I THOUGHT, WE HAVE TO FIND

A WAY OF GROWING THIS EVEN

BIGGER.

WE REACHED OUT TO DEVON,

AND WE HAD THE BEST TIME

PLANNING OUT HIS

BRAINCHILD.

THIS IS UNCOMMON.

I CAN'T SAY THAT ENOUGH.

FOR HIM TO BE SO GENEROUS

TO ALLOW THIS CONVERSATION

TO HAPPEN, FOR ME TO BE

HERE AND TO HELP

PARTICIPATE, AND IT CAME

ORGANICALLY.

THERE WAS NO PLAN.

IT JUST EVOLVED.

YOU CAN'T PLAN IT.

YOU CAN'T PLAN IT.

THIS GAZE IS UPWARDS.

EXACTLY.

WHY DO WE NEED SAINTS

AND MIRACLES?

BECAUSE LIFE IS HARD.

SOMETIMES WE DON'T BELIEVE

THERE IS A GREATER PURPOSE

FOR OUR LIVES.

Reporter: IN THIS

MONTH, THEY WILL ALSO PUSH

THE AUDIENCE TO SPEND TIME

EACH DAY THINKING ABOUT

THE GOOD IN THEIR LIVES.

IT'S CALLED "THE BLESSED

30 CHALLENGE."

> WHAT HAPPENS AT THE

END OF THE BLESSED 30.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE

HAPPEN?

WHAT I WANT TO SEE

HAPPEN IS PEOPLE GO

THROUGH THE 30 DAYS, THEY

SEARCH FOR THE BLESSINGS,

THEY LIVE IN THE

BLESSINGS, AND THEY

REORIENT THEIR LIVES TO

LIVE IN THE BLESSINGS THAT

ARE ALREADY THERE.

AT THE END OF THE 30, I

WANT THEM TO WALK OUT WITH

MORE PEACE, MORE

CONFIDENCE, MORE HOPE.

BECAUSE I HAVE NO DOUBT IN

MY MIND WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE

HOW BLESSED YOU ARE, YOUR

POSITIVITY GOES UP, AND

THE FAITH OF WHAT GOD CAN

DO IN YOUR LIFE

ACCELERATES.

Reporter: DR. OZ, YOU

HAVE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS

OF VIEWERS, WHY GIVE FAITH

A PLATFORM ON A SHOW THAT

REALLY EDUCATES PEOPLE

ABOUT THEIR MEDICAL

HEALTH?

WHY NOT.

IF YOU READ THE BIBLE, HE

HEALS PEOPLE.

THE MOST VALUABLE THING

YOU'RE PROBABLY GIVEN IS

THE BODY AND THE SOUL THAT

IS INSIDE OF IT.

I'M ACTUALLY A GUEST IN

PEOPLE'S HOME.

I HAVE TO BRING SOMETHING

WORTH LISTENING TO WITH

ME.

Reporter: THAT'S WHAT

DR. OZ AND DEVON HAVE

INVITED THEIR TEAM OF

POWER PREACHERS TO THE

MONTH LONG SERIES, SAMUEL

RODRIGUEZ, PRISCILLA

SHIRER, AND CARL LENZ.

MIRACLES SEEM TO HAPPEN

TO SOME PEOPLE AND NOT

OTHERS?

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT.

I BELIEVE WE'RE ALL

MIRACLE RECIPIENTS.

Reporter: THE TEAM

WILL EXPLORE THE POWER OF

PRAYER AND MIRACLES.

> YOU HAVE SEEN -- ONE

OF THE SHOWS IS GOING TO

FOCUS ON THIS --

UNEXPLAINED MEDICAL

RECOVERIES.

WHEN YOU SEE THAT, WHAT

DOES IT DO TO YOUR HEART?

THEY COME TO YOU FOR

HEALING, AND SOMETHING

HAPPENS THAT YOU HAVE NO

EXPLANATION?

IT REINFORCES MY FAITH.

WHEN WE GO THROUGH MEDICAL

SCHOOL, WE'RE EDUCATED BY

THE BOOKS AND MY TEACHERS.

AND MY BEST TEACHERS WERE

ALWAYS HUMBLE PEOPLE.

THEY REMIND US THAT WE

DON'T CONTROL EVERYTHING.

I'VE SEEN TOO MANY TIMES

PEOPLE IN FRONT OF ME WHO

SHOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT,

AND WHO PULLED THROUGH.

AGAIN, YOU LOOK AT THE

STORY, IT IS TRUE.

IT IS NOT FICTIONAL.

IT HAPPENED.

THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN

EXPLAIN THAT, WHICH IS

SORT OF BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE

ONE OF THE REASONS I WENT

INTO HEALTH AND MEDICINE

IS BECAUSE I KNEW I COULD

NEVER LEARN IT ALL.

AND MOST DOCTORS ARE LIKE

ME.

WE GO IN BECAUSE OF THE

MYSTERY.

THERE IS A BIGNESS TO

LIFE.

WE CAN UNDERSTAND THE

MECHANICS, BUT WE DON'T

WANT TO BE ARROGANT AND

THINK WE CAN CONTROL

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: DR. OZ

CALLS SURGERY A CONTROLLED

SURGERY.

Pat: IT IS MARVELOUS

TO SEE THIS.

AND I CONGRATULATE THEM.

I HOPE IT BRINGS FAITH TO

THEM AND IT DEEPENS

SOMETHING WITH HIM

PERSONALLY.

Wendy: IT LOOKS

FASCINATING.

> COMING UP, SCOTT ROSS

JOINS HARRY CONNICK, JR.

ON THE SET OF HIS NEW

SHOW.

DO YOU SEE MY NAME BACK

THERE?

I WORKED MY WHOLE LIFE FOR

THAT.

Wendy: AND HARRY ALSO

TALKS ABOUT HIS FAITH AND

HIS FAMILY, AND THAT'S ALL

COMING UP.

Wendy: WHAT A SHOW WE

HAVE TODAY.

WE HAVE SINGER, BIG BAND

LEADER, ACTOR, "AMERICAN

IDOL" JUDGE, AND NOW TALK

SHOW HOST.

THIS ONLY BEGINS TO

DESCRIBE THE UBIQUITOUS

HARRY CONNICK, JR.

AND HIS CAREER IS MATCHED

WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY

MARRIAGE.

AND AS HE TOLD SCOTT ROSS,

BEING A HUSBAND AND FATHER

IS THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB

OF ALL.

Reporter: WHETHER HE

IS PERFORMING ON STAGE,

THE BIG SCREEN, OR TV,

HARRY CONNICK, JR. NEVER

SEEMS TO RUN OUT OF

CREATIVITY.

A MUSIC ICON FOR MORE THAN

30 YEARS, HE NOW HAS HIS

OWN DAYTIME ENTERTAINMENT

SHOW, "HARRY."

WE CAUGHT UP WITH HIM

AFTER A RECENT SHOW

TAPING.

> "AMERICAN IDOL," THE

LAST TIME WE TALKED --

THAT'S RIGHT.

Reporter: DO YOU MISS

THAT?

WHAT I MISS ABOUT IT IS

THE CAMARADERIE AMONG JEN

AND KEITH AND RYAN AND THE

CAST.

WHAT I DON'T MISS ABOUT IT

WAS THE JUDGING PART.

TO SORT OF STAND UP THERE

AND GIVE A CRITIQUE

WITHOUT ANY INTERACTION

SORT OF GOES AGAINST THE

GRAIN FOR ME A LITTLE BIT.

Reporter: THIS

CONCEPT OF "HARRY," WHERE

DID THAT COME FROM?

WE THOUGHT MAYBE THERE

IS A WAY TO DO SOMETHING

THAT IS BASED ON ALL OF

THE THINGS THAT I LIKE TO

DO, PERFORM, MAKE MUSIC,

MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH, TELL

STORIES, MEET PEOPLE.

WE THOUGHT, LET'S SEE IF

WE CAN DO IT DURING THE

DAY AND DO IT IN SUCH A

WAY THAT IT FEELS

DIFFERENT FROM EVERYTHING

ELSE.

SORT OF BRING A PARTY TO

THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY.

STAY AWAY FROM STUFF THAT

IS, YOU KNOW, TOO HEAVY.

LET THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW

HOW TO DO THAT, DO THAT.

AND THEN WE PITCHED IT,

AND PEOPLE LIKED THE IDEA,

AND HERE WE ARE.

Reporter: CONNICK

DOESN'T MIND SHARING THE

SPOTLIGHT.

HE OFTEN FEATURES EVERY

DAY PEOPLE DOING

EXTRAORDINARY THINGS.

THERE WAS A WOMAN, SHE

WAS THE FIRST

AFRICAN-AMERICAN FEMALE TO

FLY AN F-16 IN COMBAT.

I WAS SO IN AWE OF THIS

WOMAN.

THAT'S INCREDIBLE, RIGHT.

ALL I COULD THINK TO ASK

HER WHEN SHE WAS UP HERE,

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GET

HUNGRY.

SHE SAID, I'M IN A COMBAT

MISSION.

I DON'T REALLY HAVE TIME

TO EAT.

AND I LOVED THAT.

I LOVE MEETING THESE

AMAZING PEOPLE.

OR, YOU KNOW, YOUNG KIDS

WHO ARE STARTING THESE

BUSINESSES AT EIGHT YEARS

OLD.

I JUST LOVE THAT STUFF.

I LOVE GIVING THEM A

CHANCE TO SHOW THEIR

TALENT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT

OLDER PEOPLE DID FOR ME

WHEN I WAS A KID.

Reporter: HARRY'S

ALWAYS BEEN A FAMILY MAN.

OFF STAGE, NOT PERFORMING,

YOU'RE A DAD, YOU'RE A

HUSBAND -- HOW LONG HAVE

YOU BEEN MARRIED?

WE'LL BE TOGETHER 27

YEARS NEXT MONTH.

Reporter: YOU HAVE

SURVIVED THIS INDUSTRY,

AND YOUR MARRIAGE HAS

SURVIVED, HOW?

I LOOK AT MY MOTHER AND

MY FATHER, AND MY MOTHER

DIED WHEN I WAS 13, BUT

PRIOR TO THAT, THEY HAD

BEEN MARRIED FOR 28 YEARS.

AND I JUST REMEMBER BOTH

OF THEM TOOK THIS RING

SERIOUSLY.

AND I LIKED WHAT I SAW.

I LIKED SEEING MY MOTHER

AND MY FATHER TOGETHER.

I LIKED THE FEELING THAT I

GOT.

AND I GOT LUCKY TO MEET A

WOMAN WHO SUBSCRIBED TO

THOSE SAME SORTS OF

BELIEFS.

MARRIAGE DOESN'T WORK OUT

FOR EVERYONE.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE GET

DIVORCED.

I GET IT, AND I PRAY FOR

THOSE PEOPLE BECAUSE

THAT'S A TRAGIC THING TO

HAVE TO ENDURE FOR ANYONE.

BUT I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH

TO MARRY MY BEST FRIEND, A

WOMAN THAT I LOVE VERY

MUCH, AND I LIKE THE

FEELING OF DEVELOPING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS

WOMAN THAT CONTINUES TO

EVOLVE AND GROW.

Reporter: THREE

DAUGHTERS, A WIFE --

THAT'S FOUR TO ONE AGAINST

YOU, BUDDY.

YOU WANT TO GO HANG

OUT?

I NEED A LITTLE GUY TIME.

Reporter: I HAVE A

COUPLE OF DAUGHTERS AND A

COUPLE OF SONS AND A

LOVELY WIFE, AND THAT'S

THE BIGGEST JOB IN LIFE.

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT

ONE, TOO.

I GET ASKED, HOW DO YOU

BALANCE ALL OF THE OTHER

STUFF, YOUR FAMILY -- FOR

ME, THAT REALLY IS FIRST.

ARE THERE DAYS WHEN I'M

NOT HOME?

OF COURSE.

BUT IN MY HEART, I'M OF

THE BELIEF THAT IF YOU'RE

LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE WHAT

I HAVE, THAT MAKES YOU

BETTER AT EVERYTHING ELSE.

I DON'T FEEL LIKE I'M AT

SEA.

I DON'T FEEL LOST.

IT IS THE SAME THING WITH

FAITH.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAVE

SOMETHING TO HOLD ON TO,

IT ALLOWS YOU, I THINK, TO

BE MORE PRODUCTIVE IN ALL

OF THE OTHER AREAS OF YOUR

LIFE.

SO THE FACT I HAVE MY WIFE

AND MY DAUGHTERS, ACTUALLY

IT MAKES ME A BETTER MAN,

A BETTER PERFORMER.

Reporter: YOU

MENTIONED FAITH AND PRAYER

AND SO FORTH.

YOU'RE A CATHOLIC?

YES, SIR.

Reporter: HOW DOES

YOUR SPIRITUALITY AFFECT

WHAT YOU SAY YES TO AND

WHAT YOU SAY NO TO.

THE SCRIPT, THE SUBJECT

MATTER, WHATEVER -- HOW

DOES THAT FAITH AFFECT

THAT THINKING?

I THINK FOR ME, IT IS

ABOUT MY CONSCIENCE.

I HAVE TO CREDIT MY MOTHER

AND MY FATHER AND SOME OF

MY EXTENDED FAMILY FOR

INSTILLING IN ME THE

VALUES I HOLD TODAY.

IF I DO SOMETHING ON MY

SHOW OR IF I READ A

SCRIPT, I ALWAYS THINK,

WHAT WOULD MY DAD THINK

ABOUT THIS?

WHAT WOULD MY MOM THINK

ABOUT THIS?

WHAT WOULD MY GRANDMA OR

MY AUNT JESSE THINK ABOUT

THIS?

THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD

BAROMETER.

LET ME ACT LIKE I WOULD

LIKE TO SEE THINGS O OUT

THERE.

OUT

THERE.

LET ME BEHAVE IN A MANNER

I WOULD WANT MY CHILDREN

TO SEE OR OTHER CHILDREN

TO SEE.

DOES THAT MEAN IT IS UP

TIGHT OR PRUDISH -- YOU

CAN CALL IT WHATEVER YOU

WANT.

I CALL IT FAMILY E!

ENTERTAINMENT.

ReporterENTERTAINMENT.

Reporter: DO YOU

PRAY?

I DO.

I PRAY IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

SOMETIMES IT IS A REAL

PRAYER, WHERE YOU GET DOWN

ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAY.

BUT MOST OF THE TIME I

FIND MYSELF PRAYING

THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND IT

GIVES ME A GREAT DEAL OF

COMFORT.

Reporter: AND CONNICK

DOESN'T HIDE HIS FAITH.

I JUST WANT TO SAY AS A

CATHOLIC AND AS A

CHRISTIAN, THIS IS THE

TIME OF YEAR THAT WE

CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF

CHRIST.

Reporter: OKAY.

WHAT HAVE YOU NOT DONE

THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO?

DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN

DREAMS?

TO BE TOTALLY HONEST,

YOU'RE SITTING RIGHT IN

THE MIDDLE OF MY DREAM.

RIGHT HERE.

I LOVE -- YOU KNOW WHAT MY

FAVORITE PART OF THE SHOW

IS?

WHEN I LOOK OUT AND I SEE

THE PEOPLE IN THE

AUDIENCE.

I SEE MEN, I SEE WOMEN,

OLD, YOUNG, BLACK, WHITE,

GAY, STRAIGHT.

I SEE EVERYBODY.

THAT'S WHEN I FIND THE

MOMENT TO PRAY AND SAY, I

DON'T KNOW WHY YOU PICKED

ME TO GIVE THESE PEOPLE A

RESPITE FROM THEIR DAY FOR

AN HOUR, BUT I TAKE IT

REALLY SERIOUSLY.

I LOVE TO ENTERTAIN THESE

PEOPLE BECAUSE WE'RE ALL

THE SAME.

YOU'VE STRUGGLED.

I'VE STRUGGLED.

WE'RE ALL JUST TRYING TO

MAKE IT.

AND THAT'S WHY I DON'T GET

REAL HEAVY ON THE SHOW.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE PEOPLE

HAPPY FOR AN HOUR.

THE FUNNY THING IS THIS

GUY DOESN'T EVEN WORK

HERE.

[LAUGHTER]

Reporter: ARE YOU A

HAPPY, CONTENT MAN?

I FEEL I'VE BEEN GIVEN

FAR MORE THAN I DESERVE.

I FEEL COMPELLED TO TRY TO

GIVE AS MUCH OF WHAT I'VE

BEEN GIVEN BACK.

I DON'T KNOW WHY PEOPLE

COME AND CLAP FOR ME.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

PEOPLE ASK ME THIS ALL THE

TIME, DON'T YOU GET TIRED

OF THE GRIND?

YOU SEE MY NAME BACK

THERE?

I DON'T GET TIRED OF THAT.

I WORKED MY WHOLE LIFE FOR

THAT.

I COME OUT HERE EVERY DAY.

I DON'T CARE WHETHER I'M

SICK OR TIRED.

I'M SO LUCKY TO HAVE THIS.

Reporter: YOU CAN BE

ASSURED OF OUR PRAYERS FOR

YOU.

THANK YOU.

THAT REALLY MEANS A LOT TO

ME.

AND IT IS MUTUAL.

Wendy: HARRY CONICK,

JR., HUMBLE, TALENTED.

HE HAS GOT IT ALL, AND HE

IS WANTING TO GIVE IT

BACK.

I KNOW YOU'RE A BIG FAN OF

HIS, PAT?

Pat: HE IS AMAZING.

Wendy: WE WERE

TALKING ABOUT OUR SCOTT

ROSS, AND HE DOES GREAT

INTERVIEWS.

Pat: HE IS A SUPERB

INTERVIEWER.

WE LOVE HIM.

Wendy: WE THOUGHT OF

SOMETHING A WEEK AGO

TODAY, PAT.

FEBRUARY 1st WE KICKED

OFF OUR MONTH OF LOVE.

28 DAYS OF PRAYERS FOR

SINGLES ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

THERE ARE A LOT OF YOU

SINGLES OUT THERE.

THE COMMENTS AND THE

PRAYERS HAVE BEEN POURING

IN BY THE THOUSANDS ON CBN

AND "700 CLUB'S" TWITTER

AND Facebook PAGE.

EACH DAY WE'RE POSTING A

DIFFERENT PRAYER, WITH

THEMES RANGING FROM HOPE

TO HEALING TO SEXUAL

PURITY, AND YOU HAVE BEEN

SHARING YOUR HOPES AND

DREELDREAMS AND PRAYING RIGHT

ALONG WITH US.

IT'S BEEN VERY FUN.

Pat: TELL ME WHAT

THEY'RE SAYING.

Wendy: I WANT TO TELL

YOU.

I'VE GOT SOME COMMENTS

HERE.

BEATRICE, SHE WROTE -- SHE

HAS BEEN WRITING SEVERAL

TIMES.

SHE SAYS, "THIS IS SO

ENCOURAGING, WENDY.

I PRAY JESUS WILL GIVE ME

THE DESIRES OF MY HEART.

THANK YOU FOR STARTING

THIS MONTH PRAYING FOR

SINGLES.

MUCH-NEEDED."

CAROLYN SAYS, "I'VE BEEN

WAITING A VERY LONG TIME,

AND THE DEVIL KEEPS

TELLING ME IT WILL NEVER

HAPPEN, BUT I'M GOING TO

KEEP WAITING AND

BELIEVING."

CAROLYN, WE'RE STANDING

WITH YOU.

THIS ONE SAYS, "I'M 76

YEARS OLD, AND HAD THREE

FAILED MARRIAGES, AND I'M

STILL WAITING FOR GOD'S

BEST."

DOLORES, I LOVE YOUR

SPIRIT.

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE.

JOIN US TOMORROW ON

Facebook LIVE.

WE'RE GOING TO TACKLE A

COUPLE OF TOPICS THAT I

TALK ABOUT IN MY BOOK,

"YOU ARE A PRIZE TO BE

WON."

THURSDAY, WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT THE DANGER OF

KISSING.

Pat: THE DANGER?

Wendy: DIDN'T YOU

KNOW THAT KISSING CAN BE

DANGEROUS.

IT IS A GATEWAY DRUG TO

OTHER SEXUAL SINS.

Pat: WHAT IS THIS

RECREATIONAL STUFF?

Wendy: WELL, YOU

KNOW -- OH, MY GOSH.

Pat: GO AHEAD, TELL

US.

Wendy: KISSING CAN

MAKE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH

THE WRONG GUY OR THE WRONG

GIRL.

BECAUSE IT ACTS LIKE A

DRUG.

ALL OF THESE CRAZY

CHEMICALS GO ON, AND

BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU'RE

HOOKED.

SO THE CASE -- WE'RE

HAVING FUN WITH THE TITLE,

ALTHOUGH IT IS A TITLE IN

MY BOOK -- WHICH, BY THE

WAY YOU CAN STILL GET,

SHOP cbn.com.

Pat: MOST PEOPLE

DON'T USE THAT TERM,

"RECREATIONAL KISSING."

YOU'RE THE FIRST ONE TO

USE THAT TERM.

Wendy: I CAN'T TAKE

CREDIT FOR IT.

I WAS WITH A GIRLFRIEND,

AND SHE SAID, IT'S LIKE

THE DANGERS OF

RECREATIONAL KISSING.

AND I WAS LIKE, BOOM,

THAT'S THE TITLE.

AND I'VE GOT TO ASK YOU

ABOUT THIS, THE CHAPTER IS

CALLED, "YOU'RE WORTH THE

PRICE OF DINNER AND

DESSERT."

AND THERE IS A LOT OF

CONFUSION ABOUT THAT,

SHOULD THE MAN PAY?

IN THIS DAY AND AGE,

SHOULD A MAN PAY WHEN HE

TAKES A WOMAN OUT ON A

DATE?

Pat: FOR ME, YES.

THAT'S OLD-FASHIONED.

I GUESS THE IDEA NOW IS

YOU SPLIT THE CHECK.

Wendy: IT MAKES ME

FEEL MORE LIKE A WOMAN,

MORE FEMININE IF THE MAN

PAYS.

Pat: OF COURSE.

THAT'S THE OLD WAY OF

DOING IT.

I THINK THAT IS MORE

ROMANTIC.

AND THERE IS VALENTINE'S

DAY COMING UP.

Wendy: "YOU'RE A

PRIZE TO BE WON," IS STILL

AVAILABLE ON cbn.com OR

amazon.com.

Pat: ST. VALENTINE,

HE WAS ONE OF THE GREAT

SAINTS.

HE LOVED JESUS.

HE WAS GETTING READY TO BE

MARTYRED, AND HE WROTE A

LETTER TO HIS WIFE TELLING

HER HOW MUCH HE LOVED HER,

AND HE SIGNED IT, YOUR

VALENTINE.

THAT WAS HIS NAME.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.

> OKAY, STILL AHEAD ON

"THE 700 CLUB," WE'VE GOT

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

HERE IS ONE WHO SAYS,

"DOES IT VIOLATE MY RIGHTS

AS A CHRISTIAN IF I'M TOLD

NOT TO TALK ABOUT GOD OR

RELIGION IN THE WORKPLACE

WORKPLACE?"

WE'LL TAKE THAT ONE.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

TOO ISRAELI RIGHTS GROUPS

HAVE CHALLENGED A LAW ON

SETTLEMENTS ASKING THE

JEWISH STATE SUPREME COURT

TO OVER TURN IT.

THE JEWISH KNESSET ADOPTED

THE LAW ON MONDAY, WHICH

LEGALIZES JEWISH

COMMUNITIES IN THE WEST

BANK.

WHILE SOME ARGUE THE NEW

LAW STEALS LAND FROM

PALESTINIANS, MANY

ISRAELIS ARE CELEBRATING

THE RETURN OF THEIR

ANCIENT HOMELAND.

BEFORE THE VOTE, ONE

CABINET MINISTER SAYS THE

LAW IS REALLY ABOUT THE

JEWISH PEOPLE'S RIGHT TO

THEIR OWN LAND.

HE SAID, "WE'RE VOTING ON

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE

JEWISH PEOPLE AND ITS

LAND.

THIS WHOLE LAND IS OURS,

ALL OF IT."

> IN NIGERIA, THERE IS

GREAT CONCERN ABOUT A

POTENTIAL FOOD SHORTAGE

CAUSED BY BOKO HARAM.

A NEW REPORT SAYS MORE

THAN EIGHT MILLION

NIGERIANS ARE EXPECTED TO

FACE A FOOD CRISIS EARLIER

THIS YEAR.

BOKO HARAM HAS FORCED

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

FARMERS OFF THEIR LAND.

U.N. AGENCIES SAY MORE

THAN A HALF MILLION

CHILDREN THERE FACE DEATH

IF THEY DON'T GET HELP,

AND GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION

IS MAKING MATTERS WORSE.

OFFICIALS ARE

INVESTIGATING REPORTS

ABOUT LOCAL GOVERNMENT

AGENCIES STEALING

INTERNATIONAL FOOD AID.

> YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

WELCOME BACK.

WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

COMMENTS RIGHT NOW --

E-MAIL QUESTIONS, RATHER.

THIS ONE SAYS, "DOES IT

VIOLENVIOLATE MY RIGHTS AS A

CHRISTIAN IF I'M TOLD NOT

TO TALK ABOUT GOD OR

RELIGION IN THE

WORKPLACE?"

PAT?

Pat: I THINK SO.

YOU REMEMBER WHAT PETER

SAID, IT IS RIGHT TO

TESTIFY.

GOD'S GOT TO JUDGE.

WE CANNOT SPEAK THE THINGS

THAT WE'VE SEEN OR

HEARD -- IF SOMEBODY TRIES

TO RESTRICT YOUR RIGHTS,

THEY'RE VIOLATING YOUR

RIGHTS AS A HUMAN BEING

AND AS AN AMERICAN.

I WOULDN'T STAND FOR IT.

NO BUSINESS SHOULD DO

THAT.

I'M SORRY.

BUT THEY'LL TRY TO DO IT.

THEY'LL SAY WE DON'T WANT

TO OFFEND OUR COSTUMERS,

SO, THEREFORE, GET YOUR

BIBLE AWAY.

DON'T DOE THAT.

DO THAT.

THE COURTS HAVE BEEN VERY

RESTRICTIVE IN SOME OF

THESE THINGS, AND IT IS

TIME WE CHALLENGE ALL

THAT.

IT IS LONG OVERDUE.

Wendy: IT SOUNDS LIKE

A CASE FOR THE ACLJ THAT

YOU STARTED.

> THIS ONE SAYS, "I'M

ADOPTED, AND ALL EIGHT OF

MY SIBLINGS IS ADOPTED,

AND ONLY ONE OF THEM STILL

SPEAKS TO MY ADOPTIVE

PARENTS.

I NEVER FELT LOVED BY

THEM, AND MY ADOPTIVE DAD

MADE IT CLEAR I WAS JUST

ANOTHER KID IN THE LINEUP

OF ADOPTED KIDS.

IF THEY DON'T REALLY SEE

ME AS THEIR DAUGHTER, DO I

STILL HAVE TO HONOR THEM

AS MY PARENTS?

AM I IN THE WRONG BY

CUTTING THEM OUT OF MY

LIFE?"

Pat: THEY'RE NOT

REALLY YOUR PARENT.

IF THEY HAD TAKEN THE ROLE

OF A PARENT AND BECOME A

LOVING PARENT AND

ESTABLISHED A BOND WITH

YOU, OF COURSE.

BUT I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY

HAD YOU, UNLESS THEY WERE

TRYING TO GET WELFARE

PAYMENTS.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

SITUATION YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

BUT IT IS NOT THE SAME

THING AS THE ONE WHO

BROUGHT YOU INTO THE WORLD

AS YOUR BIOLOGICAL PARENT.

Wendy: LEMONT SAYS IN

2005 MY MOTHER PASSED

AWAY.

IN 2010 MY WIFE PASSED

AWAY.

IN 2014, MY SISTER PASSED

AWAY.

I'M HAVING A HARD TIME

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY

THIS HAPPENED TO ME.

WHY WERE THE THREE MOST

IMPORTANT WOMEN IN MY LIFE

TAKEN FROM ME?"

THAT'S FROM LEMONT.

Pat: WHY DO YOU THINK

IT HAPPENED TO YOU?

YOU DIDN'T DIE.

THEY DIED.

IF THEY'RE CHRISTIAN,

THEY'RE WITH THE LORD.

THEY'RE IN PARADISE.

THEY'RE WITH THE ANGELS.

AND THEY'RE HAVING A TIME

BEYOND EXQUISITE.

THEIR LIFE IS FULL OF JOY.

WHY ARE YOU COMPLAINING?

WHY DID IT HAPPEN TO YOU?

I KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR

GRIEVING, BUT YOU SHOULD

REJOICE IN THE FACT THAT

THEY'RE WITH THE LORD.

AND YOU SHOULD FIND SOLACE

IN HIM.

YOUR RELATIONSHIP SHOULD

BE WITH JESUS, IF AT ALL

POSSIBLE.

Wendy: BRITTANY SAYS,

"I'M A 27-YEAR-OLD WHO

GOES THROUGH A LOT OF

SPIRITUAL BATTLES.

MY FAMILY AND I WATCH YOUR

SHOW EVERY MORNING.

THE LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGE I

ATTENDED TAUGHT CONFUSION

AND PRACTICED WITCHCRAFT.

I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET

MY ASSOCIATE'S DEGREE, BUT

SINCE I LEFT THERE AND

TRIED TO ATTEND OTHER

COLLEGES, THEY HAVE CAUSED

PROBLEMS WITH SENDING MY

PAPERWORK.

WHAT CAN I DO?

I KNOW GOD WILL TAKE CARE

OF ME AND PROVIDE A WAY,

BUT EVERY ROAD I TAKE JUST

TURNS INTO A DEAD END."

Pat: THEY CAN'T

WITHHOLD YOUR TRANSCRIPT,

IF THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE

SAYING.

YOU HAVE A TRANSCRIPT, AND

YOU CAN FORCE THEM TO GIVE

UP THOSE RECORDS.

THEY CAN'T WITHHOLD THAT.

IF THEY DO, THEY'RE

LEGALLY LIABLE.

Wendy: GET A FRIEND

WHO IS A LAWYER TO MAKE A

PHONE CALL.

Pat: THAT'S ALL IT

WILL TAKE.

ONE PHONE CALL AND YOU'LL

GET YOUR RECORDS.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A TERRIBLE

SCHOOL.

I'M SO GRATEFUL THAT I AM

PRIVILEGED TO BE THE

LEADER OF REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

IT IS THE FASTEST GROWING

UNIVERSITY IN AMERICA.

AND WE HAVE ALL KINDS OF

PROGRAMS.

AND THE BIG THING IS

REGENT UNIVERSITY HONORS

JESUS CHRIST.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, HAS

THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF

EXCELLENCE IN TERMS OF

TRAINING.

THERE ARE MANY DEGREES.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

SOME SCHOOL THAT BEATS UP

ON YOUR FAITH.

YOU CAN FIND ONE THAT

REALLY EXALTS THE LORD.

Wendy: HERE IS ONE

FROM LINDA, "CAN SATAN

READ YOUR MIND?

IF I AM PRAYING IN

SILENCE, DOES HE KNOW WHAT

I'M SAYING?"

Pat: I'M NOT REALLY

QUALIFIED TO ANSWER THAT.

I DON'T THINK SATAN CAN

TUNE IN ON YOUR THOUGHTS.

WE HAVE IMPRESSIONS THAT

ARE PUT INTO OUR MINDS.

SATAN CAN PUT EVIL

THOUGHTS INTO OUR MINDS IF

WE RECEIVE THEM.

Wendy: SATAN STUDIES

US.

HE KNOWS OUR WAYS, RIGHT?

Pat: EXACTLY.

Wendy: MAYBE HE

DOESN'T KNOW OUR THOUGHTS,

BUT HE KNOWS OUR WAYS.

Pat: WHILE YOU'RE IN

THE MIDDLE OF PRAYING, AND

PRAYING SILENTLY TO THE

LORD, I WOULDN'T WORRY

ABOUT HIM INTERCEPTING IT

BECAUSE THE LORD WILL

OVERCOME WHATEVER SATAN

DOES.

I CAN'T TELL YOU FOR SURE

WHAT HE KNOWS AND WHAT HE

DOESN'T KNOW.

THE LORD SAID TO SATAN,

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING?

I'VE BEEN WALKING TO AND

FRO ON THE EARTH.

HE IS SEEKING WHO HE CAN

DEVOUR.

HE IS ALWAYS TRYING TO

DESTROY YOU.

AND THE BIGGEST THING HE

PUTS IN YOUR WAY IS

DISCOURAGEMENT.

HE TRIES TO GET YOU

DISCOURAGED AND QUESTIONS

YOUR FAITH.

AND HE TRIES TO PUT

OBSTACLES IN YOUR WAY AND

TRIES TO FRUSTRATES YOU.

HE KNOWS HOW TO DO THAT.

Wendy: THE BIBLE

REALLY DOESN'T SPEAK TO

THAT.

THERE ARE SOME THINGS WE

JUST HAVE TO TRUST GOD

ABOUT --

Pat: WE DO KNOW WHO

HE IS, ROARING LION TRYING

TO DESTROY YOU.

AND THE FATHER OF LIES.

HE IS A LIAR FROM THE

BEGINNING AND THE FATHER

OF LIES.

Wendy: WE DO KNOW

THAT GOD CAN HEAR OUR

SILENT PRAYERS, SO THAT'S

WHAT IS IMPORTANT, RIGHT?

Pat: THEY ARE THE

BUSY PARENTS OF TWO YOUNG

CHILDREN.

STILL, THEY MAKE TIME TO

HELP NEEDY PEOPLE IN THEIR

COMMUNITY.

AND THEY ALSO HELP TO MEET

THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE ALL

OVER THE WORLD WITHOUT

EVER LEAVING THEIR HOME.

WATCH THIS.

Reporter: BEN HAWKINS

AND HIS WIFE, AMANDA, ARE

ACTIVE IN THEIR COMMUNITY.

THEY LOVE BEING PART OF A

MONTHLY FOOD DISTRIBUTION

AT THEIR SOUTH CAROLINA

CHURCH.

AND THEY HAVE A CLEAR

PHILOSOPHY ON GIVING.

I'M A BIG ADVOCATE ON

WHAT CHRIST DID FOR ME, I

SHOULD DO FOR EVERYBODY

ELSE.

THE WORD TALKS ABOUT

SOWING A SEED AND THEN YOU

GATHER A HARVEST.

I DON'T GIVE JUST TO GET

THINGS BACK, BUT GOD IS AN

EXCELLENT DADDY WHERE HE

DOES GIVE THINGS BACK.

Reporter: CBN ALSO

HELPS PEOPLE IN NEED, AND

THE HAWKINS WANT TO BE A

PART OF IT.

I HATE TO SEE ANYONE

SUFFER, BUT I ESPECIALLY

HATE TO SEE CHILDREN

SUFFER.

IT WOULD JUST BREAK MY

HEART TO, LIKE, SEE THEM

DRINKING FROM DIRTY WATER.

SO I FELT LIKE GIVING A

LITTLE BIT EACH MONTH

WOULD HELP THOSE CHILDREN

TO GET THAT CLEAN WATER

THAT THEY NEEDED, AND TO

GET THOSE MEDICAL

SUPPLIES.

Reporter: BEN AND

AMANDA BECAME "700 CLUB"

GOLD MEMBERS TO HELP

PEOPLE THEY COULDN'T REACH

ON THEIR OWN.

I LOVE "OPERATION

BLESSING."

IT'S FOOD AND WATER, BUT

MY NUMBER ONE IS SEEING

PEOPLE HEALED THROUGH THE

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

JUST THE BLESSING AND THE

HEALING THAT COMES TO

PEOPLE THROUGH THAT.

"OPERATION BLESSING,"

SEEING THEM GOING IN AND

HELPING WITH THE KIDS,

THAT TOUCHES MY HEART.

BUT I ALSO ENJOYED

WATCHING HOW THEY WOULD GO

IN AND PROVIDE FLOOD

RELIEF TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE

TOTALLY LOST EVERYTHING.

I JUST CAN'T IMAGINE

LOSING EVERYTHING AT ONE

TIME.

WHERE WE CAN'T BE THE

ARMS OR THE LEGS, CBN IS.

THEY'RE BEING WHAT WE

CAN'T.

KNOWING THAT I'M ABLE

TO HELP LOCALLY,

REGIONALLY, NATIONALLY,

INTERNATIONALLY, IT BRINGS

A LOT OF HOPE AND

ENCOURAGEMENT TO MY HEART,

THAT I'M ABLE TO TAKE WHAT

GOD HAS GIVEN ME AND GIVE

IT BACK TO HIM.

Pat: IT DOESN'T COST

BUT 65 CENTS A DAY AND YOU

CAN BE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

YOU CAN REACH OUT AND HELP

THE WORLD.

THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS.

ALL OF US TOGETHER CAN

MAKE AN ENORMOUS

DIFFERENCE.

YOU KNOW, 35 CENTS A DAY,

50 CENTS A DAY -- LOOK AT

THE CIGARETTE COMPANIES,

THEY MAKE BILLIONS AND

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A DAY

SELLING A PACK OF

CIGARETTES -- THEY MAKE A

LOT OF MONEY.

WE CAN GIVE AWAY

TREMENDOUS AMOUNTS IS

EVERYBODY WORKS TOGETHER,

IF EVERYBODY GIVES A

LITTLE BIT.

SO $20 A MONTH, 65 CENTS A

DAY, YOU CAN BE A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS.

"THE SECRET KINGDOM" IS

SOMETHING I PRAYED ABOUT

FOR ABOUT FIVE YEARS.

I SAID, GOD, HOW DOES THE

WORLD WORK?

AND HE BEGAN TO UNFOLD TO

ME PRINCIPLES THAT HAVE

BEEN LIFE-CHANGING FOR ME

AND FOR THOSE WHO

UNDERSTAND THEM.

SOME OF THESE PRINCIPLES

ARE IN THIS D.V.D.

AND GORDON ADDED SOMETHING

ALONG ABOUT LIF EXPECTATIONS.

WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU AS

A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

PLEASE GIVE US A CALL.

WENDY, WHAT HAVE WE GOT

NEXT?

Wendy: COMING UP, A

SPLITTING HEADACHE THAT

WAS SO SEVERE IT CAUSED

ONE WOMAN TO QUIT HER JOB.

I COULD FEEL LIKE MY

BRAIN WAS GOING TO SLIP.

IT WAS ALMOST LIKE BEING

PARALYZED AND WATCHING

LIFE GO ON AROUND ME.

Wendy: WATCH HOW THIS

WOMAN GOT HER LIFE BACK

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AND WENDY IS WITH ME.

> FOR YEARS, STACEY WADE

SUFFERED FROM DEBILITATING

HEADACHES.

THE PAIN WAS SO BAD SHE

WENT TO SEE A NEUROLOGIST.

EVEN THAT DIDN'T BRING HER

RELIEF.

THEN ONE DAY STACEY WAS

TOTALLY HEALED IN AN

INSTANT.

WATCH THIS.

I COULD FEE I WOULD FEEL LIKE MY

BRAIN WAS LITERALLY GOING

TO SPLIT.

THE PRESSURE IN MY HEAD,

IT WENT DOWN MY NECK.

IT IS HARD TO MOVE.

JUST STANDING UP OR

SITTING UP, IT WAS

TERRIBLE.

Reporter: HER DOCTOR

PRESCRIBED PAIN MEDICATION

THAT HELPED FOR A WHILE.

BUT AFTER A FEW YEARS, THE

MIGRAINES RETURNED.

THIS TIME THEY GOT SO BAD,

SHE HAD TO QUIT WORK.

I WOULD WALK IN THE

HOUSEHOLDING ON TO

HOUSE HOLDING ON TO

SOMETHING.

I WOULD COME HOME AND SAY,

HONEY, I CAN'T DO IT, I'VE

GOT TO GO TO BED.

Reporter: THE PAIN

KEPT HER FROM DOING THE

THINGS SHE LOVED, LIKE

PLAYING WITH HER

2-YEAR-OLD SON, CASH.

I WOULD BE, LIKE, CASH,

MAMA CAN'T DO IT TODAY.

Reporter: SHE RELIED

ON HER HUSBAND, J.T., TO

TAKE CARE OF HER FAMILY.

I WAS HAVING TO RELY ON

HIM TO COOK, TO CLEAN, TO

TAKE CARE OF OUR SON, PLAY

WITH HIM AND EVERYTHING

ELSE.

IAND WITH MY HUSBAND

WORKING NIGHTS, IT WAS

HARD.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE BEING

PARALYZED AND HAVING TO

WATCH YOUR LIFE GO ON

WITHOUT YOU.

Reporter: STACEY

PRAYED FOR GOD TO HEAL

HER.

SHE ALSO WATCHED "THE 700

CLUB" ALMOST EVERY DAY.

ON DECEMBER 22nd, 2015,

TERRY GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU HAVE A CHRONIC

MIGRAINE SCENARIO AND IT'S

VERY DEBILITATING.

IT HAS IMPACTED YOUR LIFE.

IT IS GONE AND YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO HAVE THAT BACK

AGAIN.

JUST RECEIVE THAT.

MERRY CHRISTMAS.

I WAS, LIKE, THAT'S ME.

GOD, THAT'S ME.

I WAS, LIKE, THANK YOU,

LORD.

THANK YOU, GOD.

AS SHE WAS TALKING, THE

PRESSURE IN MY HEAD WENT

AWAY.

THE PAIN IN MY NECK FROM

THE PRESSURE WENT AWAY.

I FELT THIS WARM SENSATION

GOING DOWN MY NECK AND

INTO MY SHOULDERS AND

THROUGH MY BACK.

Reporter: ONCE AGAIN

STACEY WAS ABLE TO ENJOY

LIFE WITH J.T.AND CASH.

WE WENT FROM HAVING TO

SIT IN ONE SPOT AND PLAY

TO HE COULD RUN THROUGH

THE HOUSE AND I COULD

CHASE HIM.

AND WE COULD GO TO THE

PARK AND HE COULD SWING

AND HE COULD PLAY.

IT WAS AWESOME.

Reporter: STACEY SAYS

SHE WASN'T THE ONLY ONE

WHO'S LIFE CHANGED THAT

DAY.

WHEN J.T. SAW HOW GOD

HEALED HIS WIFE, HE

DECIDED TO GIVE HIS LIFE

TO JESUS CHRIST.

WE WERE WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

AND PAT WAS GOING THROUGH

THE SALVATION PRAYER.

I SAID IT WITH EVERYTHING

IN ME.

I SAID, JESUS PLEASE COME

INTO MY HEART AND BE A

PART OF MY LIFE.

AND I ASK YOUR

FORGIVENESS.

Reporter: TODAY

STACEY IS STILL PAIN-FREE.

THERE IS NO

IMPOSSIBILITY WITH GOD.

GOD CAN DO ANYTHING.

Pat: TERRY DIDN'T

KNOW HER.

BUT THE LORD KNEW HER.

AND HE SENT HIS WORD AND

HEALED THEM, BOOM, AND

DELIVERED THEM FROM ALL

THEIR FEARS.

HERE IS ONE FROM ADELLA,

FROM PORTLAND, OREGON, WHO

WAS SUFFERING FROM URINARY

TRACT INFECTIONS FOR A

COUPLE OF YEARS.

ONE DAY SHE STARTED

EXPERIENCING INCREASED

PAIN.

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND WENDY, YOU

DIDN'T KNOW HER?

Wendy: I SURE DIDN'T.

Pat: YOU SAID,

SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU'RE

BEING HEALED OF SOME

KIDNEY ISSUES YOU'VE BEEN

SUFFERING WITH.

AND ADELLA SAID IT ME, AND

THE PAIN LEFT IMMEDIATELY.

Wendy: HERE IS ONE,

FOR 18 MONTHS, JOYCE HAD

SO MUCH PAIN IN HER LEFT

SHOULDER THAT SHE COULD

NOT RAISE HER ARM ABOVE

HER HEAD.

HER JOINT HAD JUST WORN

OUT.

SHE HAD BEEN RECEIVING

SHOTS, BUT NOTHING HELPED.

THEN JOYCE HEARD PAT GIVE

A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

CONCERNING SOMEONE WITH

SHOULDER PAIN, AND YOU

CALLED IT A FROZEN

SHOULDER.

SHE KNEW THAT WORD WAS FOR

HER, AND SHE RAISED HER

ARM UP, AND ALL OF THE

PAIN WAS IMMEDIATELY GONE.

AND SHE HAS NOT HAD ANY

PAIN OR PROBLEM WITH HER

SHOULDER SINCE.

Pat: WE SPEAK THE

WORD.

THE WORD CARRIES THE

ANOINTING OF THE SPIRIT,

AND THAT IS WHAT HEALS.

NOW, WENDY AND I ARE GOING

TO JOIN HANDS AND WE'RE

GOING TO BELIEVE GOD FOR

YOU, WHEREVER YOU ARE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE

SPEAK THE WORD.

MAY THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON YOU.

THERE IS A BOWEL

OBSTRUCTION, AND YOU

THOUGHT YOU MAY HAVE HAD

TO HAVE SURGICAL

INTERVENTION.

GOD HAS JUST TAKEN CARE OF

IT.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

FINE.

YOUR WHOLE INTESTINAL

TRACT IS GOING TO BE LOOSE

AND FREE AND NORMAL AND

HEALTHY IN JESUS' NAME.

TOUCH.

Wendy: THERE ARE MANY

PEOPLE DEALING WITH A

SPIRIT OF DEPRESSION.

YOU FEEL SO DEPRESSED.

YOU FEEL ALMOST SICK.

IT IS DEMONIC.

AND WE BREAK SATAN'S POWER

OFF OF YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

JUST START PRAISING GOD.

YOU HAVE BEEN SET FREE.

Pat: THERE IS AN

IMPACTED TOOTH -- IT IS

NOT A WISDOM TOOTH, BUT IT

IS A TOOTH.

YOU HAVE REALLY BEEN

SUFFERING.

RIGHT NOW THAT THING IS

COMPLETELY HEALED.

JESUS HAS JUST TOUCHED

YOU.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH VERY PAINFUL

ULCERS IN YOUR MOUTH.

AND THE LORD IS TOUCHING

YOUR MOUTH RIGHT NOW.

THEY'RE GOING TO GO AWAY.

AND SOMEONE WITH SOME

BLISTERS ON YOUR FOREARM.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT CAUSED

IT, BUT GOD IS TOUCHING

YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: WHEREVER YOU

ARE, MAY THE ANOINTING OF

THE LORD BE YOURS.

FEAR IS GOING RIGHT NOW.

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT

FEAR FOR FEAR HAS TORMENT.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM

PROVERBS: "MAY YOUR HEART

KEEP MY COMMAND, FOR THE

LENGTH OF DAYS, THEY WILL

ADD TO YOU.

."

TOMORROW, A KENTUCKY

COACH, JOHN CALIPARI,

TALKS ABOUT HIS FAITH.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.
