The 700 Club - February 10, 2017

Doctors gave Art a death sentence, so he tried an unconventional treatment and received miraculous results. Plus, convict turned CEO, Jay Coughlan shares how he lost his father while driving drunk and found the power to forgive himself. Read Transcript


Wendy: COMING UP...

MY FEARS WENT THROUGH

THE ROOF.

Wendy: ...DOCTORS

GAVE HIM A DEATH SENTENCE.

SO HE TRIED AN

UNCONVENTIONAL TREATMENT.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE

CRAZIEST, HOKIEST THING IN

THE WORLD.

Wendy: AND RECEIVED A

MIRACULOUS RESULT.

I'M 100% HEALED.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT LOOKS LIKE PRESIDENT

TRUMP WILL TAKE HIS CASE

TO THE SUPREME COURT.

THAT MOVE WOULD COME AFTER

THE NINTH CIRCUIT COURT OF

APPEALS REFUSED TO

REINSTATE HIS TEMPORARY

IMMIGRATION ORDER.

Wendy: CRITICS CALLED

IT A SETBACK FOR THE

PRESIDENT, BUT HE CALLED

THE COURT'S DECISION

POLITICAL.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE JUDGES

ON THE PANEL FROM THE SAN

FRANCISCO-BASED NINTH U.S.

CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS

SAYS THAT THE ARGUMENT

THAT THE ORDER TARGETS

PRESENTED SIGNIFICANT

CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTIONS.

THE PANEL DECLINED TO

BLOCK A LOWER COURT RULING

THAT SUSPENDED THE RULING

AND ALLOWED PREVIOUSLY

BARRED TRAVELLERS TO ENTER

THE U.S.

MOMENTS AFTER, PRESIDENT

TRUMP SOUNDED LIKE HE

WOULD APPEAL TO THE U.S.

SUPREME COURT.

TWEETING, "SEE YOU IN

COURT.

THE SECURITY OF OUR

COUNTRY IS AT STAKE."

President Trump: IT

IS A DECISION WE'LL WIN,

IN OUR OPINION, VERY

EASILY.

Reporter: OPPONENTS

OF THE PRESIDENT'S

EXECUTIVE ORDER MAY BE

GLOATING NOW, BUT THE

NINTH CIRCUIT COURT IS THE

MOST OVERTURNED APPEALS

COURT IN THE COUNTRY.

IN 2012, THE SUPREME COURT

OVERTURNED 80% OF THE CASE

THAT CAME TO IT FROM THE

NINTH.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

SAYS IT IS REVIEWING THE

DECISION AND CONSIDERING

ITS OPTIONS.

THE DECISION CAME DOWN ON

THE FIRST DAY ON THE JOB

FOR NEW ATTORNEY-GENERAL

JEFF SESSIONS, WHO WAS

SWORN IN AT THE WHITE

HOUSE ON THURSDAY.

THIS LAW PROFESSOR DOES

NOT THINK THAT THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION STANDS A

GOOD CHANCE OF VICTORY IF

IT APPEALS TO A DIVIDED

EIGHT-MEMBER SUPREME

COURT.

IF THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO

TAKE IT TO THE SUPREME

COURT FOR AN EMERGENCY

MOTION TO JUSTICE KENNEDY,

WHO SITS FOR THIS PART OF

THE UNITED STATES, THEY

CAN DO THAT.

BUT THAT COURT IS NOW

DIVIDED, WE THINK, 4-4,

WITH EIGHT MEMBERS.

THEY DON'T HAVE A NINTH

MEMBER.

AND SO I DON'T SEE HOW THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WOULD

EXPECT TO WIN AT THE U.S.

SUPREME COURT.

Reporter: BUT OTHER

COURT-WATCHERS DISAGREE

AND BELIEVE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION COULD WIN

AT THE HIGH COURT.

MEANWHILE, THE WASHINGTON

TIMES REPORTS THE STATE

DEPARTMENT HAS MORE THAN

DOUBLED THE RATE OF

REFUGEES FROM IRAQI,

SYRIA, AND OTHER SUSPECT

COUNTRIES IN THE WEEK

SINCE THE PRESIDENT'S

TRAVEL BAN WAS BLOCKED, IN

WHAT SOME ANALYSTS BELIEVE

IS A PUSH TO ADMIT AS MANY

PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE BEFORE

ANOTHER COURT PUTS A STOP

TO IT.

THE LEGAL BATTLE OVER THE

PRESIDENT'S ORDER IS

HAPPENING AS DEMOCRATIC

SENATORS HAVE MOVED VERY

SLOWLY ON CONFIRMING

TRUMP'S CABINET PICKS.

THE SENATE HAS FINALLY

VOTED ON TOM PRICE TO BE

SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES.

THERE MAY BE ANOTHER FIGHT

OVER THE PRESIDENT'S

SUPREME COURT NOMINEE

JUDGE NEIL GORSUCH.

Gordon: DAVID BRODY

IS WITH US NOW FROM

WASHINGTON.

DAVID, I GUESS THE

QUESTION OF THE DAY: DO

YOU THINK TRUMP IS GOING

TO TAKE THIS CASE TO THE

SUPREME COURT?

David: WELL, IT IS

THE QUESTION OF THE DAY.

GORDON, I CAN TELL YOU

SOME OF MY SOURCES INSIDE

THE WHITE HOUSE, IN FACT,

ONE ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIAL SAYING TO ME

PRIVATELY, JUST A FEW

MINUTES AGO, THAT THEY ARE

LOOKING AT ALL OF THE

OPTIONS NOW.

IT IS ALL UNDECIDED.

IT IS FLUID AT THIS POINT.

THE QUESTION I ASKED TO

THIS WHITE HOUSE

ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL,

WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THEY

WILL TAKE IT TO THE

SUPREME COURT?

THEY JUST DON'T KNOW RIGHT

NOW.

THE PROBLEM WITH TAKING IT

TO THE SUPREME COURT IS IT

WILL MOST LIKELY BE A 4-4

DECISION, AND THERE ARE

NOT NINE JUSTICES THERE.

AND YOU HAVE OTHER

OPTIONS.

WHAT THEY COULD DO IS TAKE

IT POSSIBLY BACK TO THIS

THREE-JUDGE PANEL --

UNLIKELY.

THEY COULD TAKE IT TO THE

FULL NINTH CIRCUIT COURT

OF APPEALS, OR AT SOME

POINT THEY MAY HAVE TO

THINK ABOUT HOW TO TAILER

TAILER-MAKE THIS ORDER TO

SOMETHING THEY WOULD

ACCEPT.

Gordon: LOOKING AT

HOW THE STATE DEPARTMENT

IS SEEMING ACCELERATING

THE GRANTING OF REFUGEE

STATUS FROM THESE

COUNTRIES, SHOULDN'T THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION JUST

ISSUE A NEW ORDER SAYING,

NO NEW VISAS FROM THESE

COUNTRIES UNTIL WE FIGURE

OUT OUR VETTING PROCESS?

David: ABSOLUTELY.

THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

LOOKING AT.

WHEN THIS ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIAL SAID THEY ARE

LOOKING AT ALL OPERATION OPTIONS,

THAT IS ONE OF THEM.

I THINK WE WAIT TO SEE

WHAT HAPPENS GOING

FORWARD.

CLEARLY THERE ARE SOME

PROBLEMS AS IT RELATES TO

THE RUSHING AND THIS

EXECUTIVE ORDER.

ONE OF THE PROBLEMS THAT

DONALD TRUMP IS GOING TO

HAVE THROUGH THESE FOUR

YEARS IS THE WORD

"PATIENCE."

NOT SURE HOW MUCH DONALD

TRUMP HAS OF THAT SKILL AT

TIMES.

THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED

CO-EQUAL BRANCHES OF

GOVERNMENT.

HE IS A BUSINESSMAN, AND

HE WANTS TO GET THINGS

DONE FAST.

AND HE IS BRINGING IN

OUTSIDERS, LIKE STEPHEN

BANNON, AND SO THERE MAY

BE SOME MISSTEPS --

MISSTEPS IN THE SENSE IT

MAY NOT HAVE BEEN DRAFTED

AS CLEANLY AS IT COULD

HAVE BEEN.

THE WHITE HOUSE BELIEVES

THEY ARE VERY MUCH IN

THEIR LEGAL RIGHTS.

Gordon: WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING IS IT RAISES

CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES.

AND ONE OF THE BIG

CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES IS

DUE PROCESS IF YOU ALREADY

HAVE A VALID GREEN CARD

AND A VALID VISA -- HAS

THAT BEEN TAKEN FROM YOU

WITHOUT DUE PROCESS.

IF YOU JUST ISSUE AN ORDER

SAYING NO NEW VISAS ARE

GOING TO BE ISSUED, YOU

COMPLETELY AVOID THAT

ISSUE.

THERE IS NO CONSTITUTIONAL

CLASS TO BRING A SUIT.

SO IT'S -- THAT MAY BE THE

NEXT THING.

> LET'S TALK ABOUT THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

IN YOUR INTERVIEW WITH

HIM, YOU TALKED TO HIM

ABOUT LABELLING THAT GROUP

AS A TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION.

DOES THIS DECISION, DOES

THIS CASE HAVE ANY IMPACT

ON THAT?

David: THE WORRY IS

THAT IT DOES.

IT IS NOT TO THE POINT YET

WHERE THE WHITE HOUSE IS

NOT GOING TO LABEL THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD A

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION --

OR I SHOULD SAY THE STATE

DEPARTMENT -- BUT THERE IS

DEFINITELY MORE OF A

CALCULATION AS TO HOW MUCH

GOOD THAT WOULD DO ON THIS

POINT COMING ON THE HEELS

OF ALL OF THIS CONTROVERSY

WITH THE SO-CALLED MUSLIM

BAN.

I KEEP GOING BACK TO THE

WORD "SO-CALLED," BECAUSE

THE LAST TIME I CHECKED,

IF YOU LOOK INTO THE

STATISTICS, 75% OR MORE OF

MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD

WOULDN'T BE BANNED FROM

COMING INTO THE UNITED

STATES, AND YET THE MEDIA

STILL CALLS IT A MUSLIM

BAN.

THAT'S SLOPPY REPORTING BY

THE MEDIA, FOR SURE.

Gordon: AND IT IS

PART OF THE CASE.

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL FOR

THE STATE OF WASHINGTON IS

DRIVING THAT POINT HOME

REPEATEDLY.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT

STATEMENTS MADE IN THE

CAMPAIGN.

AND HE IS SAYING THAT IS

SHOWING IN TIN INTENT IN TERMS OF

THE ORDER.

SO THAT IS GOING TO BE

LITIGATED, AND PROBABLY

LITIGATED IN A CIRCUIT AND

IN A DISTRICT COURT THAT

CERTAINLY DOESN'T SEEM TO

BE FRIENDLY TO THE

ADMINISTRATION.

David: AND I WOULD

ALSO POINT OUT, GORDON,

THAT ONE OF THE ISSUES

HERE -- NOT AN ISSUE, BUT,

LOOK, CBN, OUR INTERVIEW

COULD ACTUALLY PLAY INTO

ALL OF THIS.

REMEMBER THE QUESTION I

ASKED HIM DURING THAT

INTERVIEW, WILL CHRISTIANS

BE A PRIORITY IN THE

REFUGEE PROCESS, AND

DONALD TRUMP SAID

ABSOLUTELY THEY WOULD BE.

AND THAT WAS BROUGHT UP IN

THAT NINTH CIRCUIT

HEARING.

I WAS LISTENING TO SOME OF

THE AUDIO, AND THE

PLAINTIFFS' ATTORNEYS

THERE DID BRING THAT UP.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE IF SOME OF THOSE WORDS

COME BACK TO HAUNT THE

ADMINISTRATION.

Gordon: WHAT HE SAID

WAS ABSOLUTELY TRUE, THERE

SEEMS TO BE A

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST

CHRISTIANS COMING OUT OF

SYRIA.

THEY ARE 10% OF THE

POPULATION, BUT .5% OF THE

REFUGEE PROBLEM.

SOMEONE WAS SAYING, WE'RE

NOT GOING TO LET

CHRISTIANS IN FROM SYRIA.

IT SEEMS LIKE THERE WAS NO

DISCRIMINATION COMING OUT

OF IRAQ.

WHY IT WAS IN SYRIA, I

HAVE NO IDEA.

> IS THIS GOING -- IT

OBVIOUSLY POLITICIZES --

IF YOU CAN POLITICIZE EVEN

MORE -- A CONFIRMATION OF

JUDGE GORSUCH TO THE

SUPREME COURT.

IS THIS GOING TO HAVE AN

IMPACT ON THAT?

David: I DON'T KNOW

IF IT WILL HAVE A DIRECT

IMPACT ON IT.

I WILL SAY THIS, CLEARLY

WHAT WE'VE SEEN IS

APPARENTLY THAT THE JUDGES

THAT YOU HAVE READ ABOUT

HAVE SAID THAT THESE

COMMENTS BY DONALD TRUMP

HAVE BEEN DISHEARTENING,

WITH RESPECTING TO WHAT HE

SAID ABOUT THE JUDGE AND

THE JUDICIARY.

IT IS GOING TO PUT GORSUCH

ON THE SPOT IN HIS

CONFIRMATION HEARING

BECAUSE THIS IS NOW GOING

TO COME UP.

SO THE QUESTION WILL BE,

HOW MUCH WILL THIS BE A

POLITICAL PROBLEM FOR THE

WHITE HOUSE.

THE REALITY HERE, GORDON,

IS THAT THE REPUBLICANS

ARE GOING TO NEED EIGHT

SENATORS, DEMOCRAT

SENATORS, TO GET JUDGE

GORSUCH OVER THE TOP.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE'LL

PROBABLY HAVE THOSE

BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY

MODERATE SENATORS FROM RED

STATES THAT TRUMP WON,

LIKE HEIDI HIGHCAMP, WHO

SHOULD GO ALONG WITH THE

NOMINATION.

HE SHOULD BE FINE.

Gordon: ALL RIGHT.

LAST QUESTION: WHAT DO YOU

THINK ABOUT THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT, GETTING THAT

REPEALED?

IS THAT NOW ON A BACK

BURNER BASED ON WHAT IS

HAPPENING WITH THE COURT

SYSTEM?

OR ARE WE GOING TO SEE

THAT PUSHED THROUGH?

David: IT IS ON A

BACK BURNER FOR NOW.

I THINK THERE IS A DOT,

DOT, DOT EXTENDED TO THAT.

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND AT THE

TIME CANDIDATE TRUMP, HAD

BEEN TELLING OUR VIEWERS

ALL ALONG THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT WILL BE

REPEALED.

HE HAS TOLD ME PUBLICLY

THAT AND PRIVATELY AS

WELL.

HE IS SERIOUS ABOUT DOING

THIS.

THE QUESTION BECOMES: WHAT

IS THE TIMING AND IN WHAT

FORM?

OF COURSE, THERE IS THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT IN

CONGRESSIONAL FORM, IN A

BILL THAT IS OUT THERE,

BUT THERE IS ALSO THE

POSSIBILITY OF AN

EXECUTIVE ORDER.

RIGHT NOW, HOW MUCH WATER

CAN YOU HAVE IN THE BOAT

AS IT RELATES TO DAMAGE

CONTROL AND EXECUTIVE

ORDERS.

SO I DON'T THINK THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT WILL BE

COMING BY ANY SORT OF

EXECUTIVE ORDER.

IT WILL HAVE TO COME

THROUGH CONGRESS.

HAVING SAID THAT, THERE IS

TALK ABOUT PUTTING SOME

JOHNSON AMENDMENT LANGUAGE

IN SOME SORT OF EXECUTIVE

ORDER MAYBE ON RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM, BUT THAT IS ALL

STILL TO BE WORKED OUT.

BOY, THEY'VE GOT A LOT

GOING ON LEFT AND RIGHT,

SO THIS IS ON THE BACK

BURNER FOR NOW.

Gordon: MY PERSONAL

PREFERENCE IS IT GOES

THROUGH CONGRESS AND

BECOMES LAW, AND GET RID

OF THAT.

IN THAT WAY, IF A NEW

PRESIDENT COMES IN, HE IS

ABLE TO ISSUE A NEW

EXECUTIVE ORDER.

I MUCH RATHER HAVE IT BE

THE LAW OF THE LAND AND

GET RID OF THAT.

IT IS AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL

RESTRICTION ON POLITICAL

SPEECH.

AND IT NEEDS TO GO.

David: WELL, HE IS

LOOKING AT DOING IT, FOR

SURE.

AND, REMEMBER, THERE IS

THIS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT WAS

BANDIED ABOUT AND HE

TALKED ABOUT DOING THAT,

ALSO ON THE BACK BURNER.

THAT IS THE FIRST

AMENDMENT BILL ON CAPITOL

HILL.

I THINK THE WHITE HOUSE

HOPES IT WILL ALSO MOVE

LEGISLATIVELY, WHEN IT

COMES TOWARDS PRACTICING

THEIR PRIVATE CONSCIENCE

AND PUBLIC POLICY, IF YOU

WILL.

I THINK THE WHITE HOUSE

HOPES IT GOES THAT WAY

RATHER THAN HAVING TO

ISSUE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER

ABOUT THAT.

WE'LL SEE.

IT IS A T.B.A.

Gordon: DAVID, THANKS

FOR BEING WITH US.

IF YOU WANT TO CATCH UP ON

DAVID BRODY AND THE LATEST

COMING OUT OF WASHINGTON,

OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO

TO "THE BRODY FILE," AND

YOU CAN FIND IT ON

cbnnews.com.

Wendy: IT IS A GREAT

SHOW AND VERY

ENTERTAINING, TOO.

> UP NEXT, FIVE FORMER

SOSOVIET REPUBLICS -- SEE

HOW YOUNG CHRISTIAN

PROFESSIONALS IN ASIA ARE

Gordon: THE GROWTH OF

RADICAL ISLAM HELPED MAKE

2016 ONE OF THE WORST

YEARS EVER FOR CHRISTIAN

PERSECUTION.

CHRISTIANS IN A PRO

DOMINANTLY MUSLIM REGION

OF CENTRAL ASIA CONTINUE

TO FACE ALMOST DAILY

HARASSMENT FOR SHARING THE

GOSPEL.

EVEN SO, MANY YOUNG

PROFESSIONALS IN THE FIVE

SO-CALLED STAND STATES ARE

BOLDLY SPREADING THE

GOSPEL.

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US

THAT STORY FROM CERGISTAN.

THEY CAN EXPECT

INTIMIDATION, HARASSMENT,

OR WORSE, JAIL TIME, FOR

TELLING OTHERS ABOUT THEIR

FAITH.

ARTU, NOT HIS REAL NAME,

IS FROM UZBEKISTAN.

I AM CALLED TO BE A

WITNESS FOR CHRIST, BUT

THAT IS HAS BEEN A

DANGEROUS CALLING.

George: KAZIGK LIVES

IN NORTHERN CERG STAN.

THEY WILL BRING HIM OR

HER BEFORE AN ISLAMIC

COUNCIL OF ELDERS.

THEY HAVE TO DECIDE

BETWEEN FAITH OR FAMILY.

George: 25 YEARS

AFTER THE SOVIET UNION

DISAPPEARED AND THEE

REPUBLICS GAINED THEIR

INDEPENDENCE, THE FIVE

SO-CALLED STAND STATES

HAVE BECOME REPRESSIVE AND

HOSTILE TOWARDS PEOPLE OF

FAITH.

IN RECENT YEARS,

CHRISTIANS HAVE COME UNDER

INTENSE PRECIOUS HERE IN

CENTRAL ASIA.

IN AN ATTEMPT TO CRACK

DOWN ON RADICAL ISLAM,

THESE FIVE GOVERNMENTS

HAVE ENACTED LAWS CURBING

THEIR ACTIVITIES.

BUT INSTEAD OF GOING AFTER

MUSLIMS, THESE GOVERNMENTS

ARE USING THESE LAWS TO GO

AFTER CHRISTIANS.

THIS DR. FOLLOWS RELEGIONS

FREEDOM ISSUERELIGIOUSISSUES IN THE NATION .

HE SAYS WHILE CHRISTIAN

ORGANIZATIONS RAISE

SUSPICION, INDIVIDUAL

RELATIONSHIPS GO VIRTUALLY

UNNOTICED.

WE ARE DISCOVERING

BEING A WITNESS FOR CHRIST

IN THE WORKPLACE IS

PROBABLY THE ONLY SAFE AND

EFFECTIVE FORM OF

EVANGELIZATION.

George: ON A RECENT

SATURDAY MORNING, HUNDREDS

OF YOUNG CHRISTIANS FROM

ACROSS THE REGION MET FOR

THE FIRST EVER NEXT

GENERATION PROFESSIONAL

LEADERS INITIATIVE.

THE EVENT WAS THE

BRAINCHILD OF SERGEI.

IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO

OVERSTATE THE SIGNIFICANCE

OF THE GATHERING.

George: HE GREW UP IN

THE FORMER SOVIET UNION

AND REMEMBERS WHAT IT WAS

LIKE AS A YOUNG CHRISTIAN

TRYING TO DISCOVER HIS

PURPOSE IN LIFE.

I WAS NOT ALLOWED TO

STUDY AT THE UNIVERSITY

BECAUSE I WAS A CHRISTIAN.

AND THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE

TERRITORY OF THE SOVIET

UNION, YOU COULD NOT FIND

EVEN ONE CHRISTIAN

PROFESSOR, CHRISTIAN

DOCTORS OR CHRISTIAN

LAWYER.

EVEN THE WORD "BUSINESS"

WAS A FOREIGN WORD FOR

CHRISTIANS OF THAT TIME.

George: HE BROUGHT

TOGETHER ENTREPRENEURS,

DOCTORS, EDUCATORS,

LAWYERS, AND MEDIA EXPERTS

TO TEACH YOUNG

PROFESSIONALS HOW TO BE

EFFECTIVE WITNESSES FOR

CHRIST IN THE MARKETPLACE.

THIS IS A GENERATION

THAT DIDN'T GROW UP IN A

SECULAR AND REPRESSIVE

SOVITY MINDSET.

SO THEY HAVE A UNIQUE

PERSPECTIVE AND GIFTS AND

TALENTS THAT CAN BRING

TRANSFORMATION INTO THEIR

COMMUNITIES.

George: 31-YEAR-OLD

ORMOND WORKS AS AN I.T.

SPECIALIST.

WHILE IT IS NOT ALWAYS

EASY TO TALK OPENLY ABOUT

FAITH, I'M LEARNING THAT

MY DEEDS SHOULD SPEAK

LOUDER THAN MY WORDS.

George: 17-YEAR-OLD

MIRIAM TEACHES ENGLISH IN

KYRZAKHSTAN.

MY PARENTS AND ALL OF

MY RELATIVES ARE AGAINST

ME BECAUSE I'M A

CHRISTIAN.

George: SHE SAYS

MEETING OTHERS WHO HAVE

ALSO ENDURED MUCH FOR

THEIR FAITH AND STILL WANT

TO BE USED BY GOD WAS A

HUGE ENCOURAGEMENT.

THIS GATHERING IS SO

IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT IS

TEACHING US HOW TO SAFELY

COMBINE OUR PROFESSION

WITH OUR PASSION FOR

CHRIST.

George: THIS MAN IS A

MEDIA SPECIALIST.

TO SEE A LOT OF YOUNG

PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE

USEFUL TO GOD IS INSPIRING

FOR ME.

IT IS ALSO A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY TO NETWORK

WITH OTHERS.

George: HE SAYS IT IS

UP TO THESE YOUNG

PROFESSIONALS TO INSTILL

BIBLICAL VALUES INTO THEIR

SOCIETY.

ONLY THEN WILL THEY SEE

LASTING CHANGE.

EVEN THOUGH ISLAM IS

THE DOMINANT RELIGION, AND

RADICAL ISLAM IS BECOMING

MORE INFLUENTIAL HERE, I

AM SO BLESSED TO WITNESS

THE COURAGE AND CONFIDENCE

DEMONSTRATED BY YOUNG

CHRISTIANS IN CENTRAL

ASIA.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

KYRGYZSTAN.

Gordon: IF YOU GO

BACK 1300 YEARS, YOU FIND

THIS IS THE SILK ROAD,

THIS IS THE PATH FROM WHAT

WAS THE BIZANTINE EMPIRE

TO THE CAPITAL OF THE TANG

CHINESE.

ALONG THAT ROUTE HISTORIAN

CHRISTIANS WENT AND THEY

ESTABLISHED CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITIES.

THE LEGERS WERE

PREDOMINANTLY CHRISTIAN

1300 YEARS AGO.

AND TO SEE IT REBIRTH AND

A REGROWTH OF CHRISTIANITY

IS WONDERFUL.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOR THEM.

PRAY FOR THEIR PROTECTION,

AND PRAY THAT THERE WOULD

BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE

THE GOSPEL.

Wendy: PRAY FOR THE

STAND COUNTRIES.

Gordon: YES.

Wendy: COMING UP, HIS

DOCTORS TOLD HIM HE WOULD

BE DEAD IN TWO YEARS.

SO MY FEARS WENT

THROUGH THE ROOF.

AND TIED TO THAT WAS THE

PAIN, AND IT WENT THROUGH

THE ROOF.

Wendy: SEE HOW THIS

MAN WAS 100% HEALED, AND

WE'LL ALSO BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS, SO

STAY WITH US.

Wendy: DOCTORS GAVE

ART LESS THAN TWO YEARS TO

LIVE, BUT THAT WAS MORE

THAN 15 YEARS AGO.

AT THE TIME, ART WAS IN

EXCRUCIATING PAIN AND

TOTALLY DISPONDENT, SO HIS

SISTER SUGGESTED HE TRY AN

UNUSUAL TREATMENT.

Reporter: IN 1997, A

SNOWMOBILE ACCIDENT NEAR

HIS HOME IN ALASKA LEFT

ART WITH SEVERE PAIN IN

HIS RIGHT SHOULDER AND

ARM.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

MONTHS, THE PAIN INCREASED

DRAMATICALLY.

THE NEUROSURGEON SENT HIM

FOR AN M.R.I.

MY RIGHT ARM AND

SHOULDER WERE WITHERING,

AND I WAS GETTING MORE AND

MORE SCARED.

AND THE M.R.I. ON THE NECK

SHOWED I HAD THREE

VERTEBRAE -- THE DISCS IN

THREE DIFFERENT LEVELS

BROKEN AND SHATTERED.

THERE WAS SO MUCH PRESSURE

ON MY SPINAL CORD, I

SHOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD.

Reporter: HE HAD

SURGERY TO DEFUSE SOME OF

THE VERTEBRAE IN HIS NECK,

BUT NEW PROBLEMS EMERGED.

I STARTED TO HAVE

NUMBNESS IN MY RIGHT ARM

AND RIGHT LEG.

THE NERVES WERE STARTING

TO DIE.

I COULDN'T FEEL ANYTHING.

THE MORE NERVOUS I WAS,

THE GREATER THE PAIN.

IT ACCENTUATES THE PAIN.

AND SO MY FEARS WENT

THROUGH THE ROOF, AND TIED

TO THAT WAS THE PAIN, THAT

WENT THROUGH THE ROOF.

Reporter: AND HE

DEVELOPED HUNDREDS OF

ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGIES,

AND WAS EVENTUALLY

DIAGNOSED WITH PERIPHERAL

NEURNEUROPATHY.

I SAID, GOD, WHY ARE

YOU DOING THIS TO ME.

I ONLY HAVE TWO YEARS LEFT

TO LIVE, ALL I EVER WANTED

TO DO IS SERVE YOU.

Reporter: HIS SISTER

TOLD HIM SHE HAD BEEN

HEALED FROM TUMORS IN HER

BREAST BY FORGIVING THOSE

AGAINST WHOM SHE HELD

BITTERNESS.

WHEN SHE FIRST TOLD ME,

I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE

HOKIEST THING.

BUT I HAD ONLY 18 MONTHS

LEFT TO LIVE, AND SO I

SAID, I'M GOING TO DO

THIS.

Reporter: HE FORGAVE

HIS FATHER FOR ABANDONING

HIS FAMILY WHEN ART WAS 1 12

YEARS OLD.

AND HE RELEASED HIS

BITTERNESS TOWARDS GOD

BECAUSE OF THE ILLNESS.

FEAR IS THE OPPOSITE OF

FAITH.

IF I'M IN FEAR AND WORRY,

I'M NOT TRUSTING GOD.

I HAD TO REPENT OF THE

FEAR, START BELIEVING

GOD'S PROMISES, AND THEN

THE PAIN LEVELS WOULD COME

DOWN BECAUSE THE ANXIETY

CAME DOWN.

AS I GOT RID OF MY

BITTERNESS AND

RESENTMENTS, AND I REALLY

FOLLOWED OBEDIENCE TO THE

SCRIPTURES, MY FEAR WENT

AWAY.

MY PHYSICAL BODY SETTLED

DOWN.

MY IMMUNE SYSTEM HEALED

AND MY PHYSICAL BODY THEN

HEALED.

Reporter: AS HE

RESUMED A HEALTHY, ACTIVE

LIFESTYLE, WORD SPREAD OF

HIS HEALING.

ANOTHER PEOPLE STARTED

CALLING ME.

AND THEY SAY, ART, I NEED

SOME HELP.

CAN YOU EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT

HAPPENED TO YOU?

I EXPLAINED IT TO THEM.

DEALING WITH BITTERS THEY

DIDN'T EVEN UNDERSTAND

THEY HAD, AND THEY GOT

WELL.

Reporter: HE WENT

BACK TO SCHOOL AND STARTED

WELL-SPRING MINISTRIES.

ART IS HELPING PEOPLE FIND

HEALING THE SAME WAY HE

DID.

THE FEAR

WE SEE, LITERALLY,

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

HEALED.

Reporter: ART SAYS

HIS HEALING, WHICH

OCCURRED OVER 15 YEARS

AGO, AND THE THOUSANDS OF

HEALINGS HE HAS SEEN SINCE

THEN, CAME ONLY THROUGH

OBEDIENCE AND FOLLOWING

THE EXAMPLE THAT JESUS

GAVE US IN THE BIBLE.

I'M 100% HEALED.

ALL OF THE ALLERGIES ARE

GONE, AL MY RIGHT ARM IS

TOTALLY BACK.

IF I HADN'T BECOME

OBEDIENT TO THE SCRIPTURES

AND DONE WHAT THEY SAID, I

WOULDN'T BE ALIVE TODAY.

I DID WHAT OUR LOVING,

HEAVENLY FATHER TOLD US TO

DO.

OUT OF HIS LOVE AND MY

OBEDIENCE TO DO WHAT HE

SAID, MY BELIEF, THAT'S

WHY I'M HERE.

Wendy: I KNOW A LOT

OF PEOPLE ARE BEING SET

FREE RIGHT NOW, AND THE

KEY, ART SAID, WAS HE

FORGAVE FROM HIS HEART.

IT'S A CHOICE.

THAT'S INCREDIBLE, GORDON.

Gordon: IT IS.

AND MEDICAL SCIENCE BACKS

THAT UP.

PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT HE

WAS SAYING.

THESE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS

TRIGGER OFF CHEMICALS IN

YOUR BRAIN.

AND THOSE LEAD TO ALL

KINDS OF PROBLEMS.

MEDICAL SCIENCE HAS

DEFINITELY TRACKED HEART

CONDITIONS BACK TO HOW DO

YOU THINK ABOUT THINGS?

HOW ARE YOU REACTING TO

THINGS?

JUST THE STRESS HORMONE

CORTISOL -- IF YOU THINK

THAT THAT IS SOME KIND OF

NEGATIVE THING, THEN IT

WILL BE A NEGATIVE THING

FOR YOU.

IF YOU THINK IT IS

SOMETHING GIVEN BY GOD SO

YOU CAN DEAL WITH PRESSURE

SITUATIONS, WELL THEN YOU

CAN RELEASE IT AND IT'S A

WONDERFUL THING FOR YOU.

SO GET RID OF ANGER,

BITTERNESS, RESENTMENT.

AND THE BEST WAY TO DO

THAT IS TO START FORGIVING

FORGIVING.

AND NOT JUST SAYING IT

MENTALLY, BUT FROM YOUR

HEART, SAY, I RELEASE

THEM.

THEY OWE ME NOTHING.

AND ONE OF THE WORST

THINGS YOU CAN DO IS BLAME

GOD FOR YOUR CONDITION.

HE IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR

CONDITION.

HE'S NOT THE CAUSE OF YOUR

CONDITION.

HE'S THE ANSWER TO IT.

SO EMBRACE THE ANSWER, AND

YOU CAN SEE WONDERFUL

MIRACLES.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

FOR PEOPLE.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

BUT BEFORE WE PRAY, WE'VE

GOT SOME WONDERFUL

REPORTS.

WE ALSO HAVE A PRAYER

REQUEST THAT HAS COME IN

FROM DEBBIE BLEVENS.

SHE HAS LUPUS.

SHE HAS ONE HIP THAT IS

GOING OUT ON HER, AND

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR DEBBIE.

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR YOU.

BUT HERE IS A REPORT FROM

IRENE OF COLUMBUS,

GEORGIA.

SHE HAD DEFORMED TOES THAT

CREATED PAIN MOST OF HER

LIFE.

SHE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AND WENDY SAID, "THERE IS

SOMEONE, I BELIEVE IT IS A

LADY, YOU HAVE TERRIBLE

ARTHRITIS IN YOUR FEET.

THEY ALMOST LOOK DEFORMED,

VERY PAINFUL.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOUR FEET.

YOUR MUSCLES ARE RELAXING.

THAT PAIN IS LEAVING, AND

ARTHRITIS IS GONE IN

JESUS' NAME."

WHEN IRENE HEARD "LADY,

DEFORMED, AND PAIN IS

LEAVING," HER PAIN

IMMEDIATELY LEFT, AND SHE

HAS NOT SUFFERED SINCE

THAT DAY.

AND SHE IS GIVING GOD THE

GLORY.

AND THAT IS AN AMEN.

Wendy: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

> WELL, PHYLLIS OF

BAYTOWN, TEXAS, HAD

SUFFERED FOR 20 YEARS WITH

DETERIORATING DISKS IN HER

NECK.

THE PAIN WAS CONSTANT.

LAST MONTH PHYLLIS WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB"

WHEN SHE HEARD YOU,

GORDON, GIVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE, SAYING "YOU'VE

GOT DETERIORATING

VERTEBRAE IN YOUR SPINE.

YOUR LOSING CALCIUM AND

LOSING THE CUSHIONING

BETWEEN THE VERTEBRAE.

YOU'RE IN CONSTANT PAIN.

GOD IS ABLE TO RESTORE, SO

HE IS RESTORING BONE TO

YOU NOW.

HE IS RESTORING CARTILAGE

TO YOU.

HE IS RESTORING ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT YOU NEED TO BE

PAIN-FREE IN JESUS' NAME.

NOW, DO WHAT YOU COULDN'T

DO BEFORE.

YOU COULDN'T ROTATE THAT

SPINE WITHOUT PAIN.

DO IT NOW AND SEE WHAT GOD

HAS DONE FOR YOU."

PHYLLIS BELIEVED THAT WORD

WAS FOR HER AND SHE COULD

FEEL THE PAIN BEING DRAWN

OUT OF HER.

THE PAIN LIFTED OFF HER

NECK AND SHOULDER BLADES.

SHE IS NOW ABLE TO ROTATE

HIS NECK WITHOUT ANY

CLICKING OR PAIN.

Gordon: HALLELUJAH.

HOW WONDERFUL.

LET'S PRAY AND LET'S

BELIEVE GOD.

IF YOU HAVE OUGHT AGAINST

ANYONE -- THESE ARE THE

WORDS OF JESUS AND IT IS

THE KEY THE MIRACLES.

YOU FIND IT IN MARK 11.

"IF YOU HAVE OUGHT AGAINST

ANY, STOP YOUR PRAYER,

LEAVE, GO MAKE IT RIGHT

WITH YOUR BROTHER, AND

THEN COME BACK TO PRAY.

AND THEN WHEN YOU PRAY,

BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE

ALREADY RECEIVED."

WHEN WERE YOU HEALED?

2,000 YEARS AGO, THE SAME

TIME YOUR SINS WERE.

GOD MADE A WAY TO BE SET

FREE FROM ALL OF THIS.

LET'S WALK INTO ALL OF

THAT AND LET'S BELIEVE

THAT AND LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE

NEEDS OF THE AUDIENCE TO

YOU RIGHT NOW.

LORD, IF R IF WE HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANYONE, WE JUST

SAY OUT LOUD, I FORGIVE

THEM.

I SET THEM FREE FROM THAT.

THEY OWE ME NOTHING.

I WANT NOTHING BUT LOVE TO

FLOW FROM MY HEART TO

THEM.

LORD, RELEASE THAT IN ME.

YOUR COMMANDMENT IS THAT

WE WOULD LOVE OUR ENEMIES.

AND I WANT TO FULFILL YOUR

COMMANDMENT.

SO FILL ME WITH YOUR LOVE,

YOUR FORGIVENESS, THE SAME

FORGIVENESS THAT YOU HAD

FROM THE CROSS.

FATHER, FORGIVE THEM FOR

THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY

DO.

SO I FORGIVE THEM.

I RELEASE THEM NOW.

AND NOW, LORD JESUS, COME.

BE IN OUR HEARTS.

BE IN OUR BODIES.

BE IN OUR MINDS.

HOLY SPIRIT BREATHE ON US

THERE IS ALSO SOMEONE -- I

DON'T KNOW IF IT IS A

BUSTED LIP, BUT YOUR LIP

PAINFUL, AND GOD IS

TOUCHING YOUR LIP.

AND THERE IS SOMEONE WITH

A HIP THAT IS OUT OF

JOINT.

IT'S VERY PAINFUL, AND GOD

AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE

HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE GOT

MIGRAINE HEADACHES THAT

RIGHT NOW IT IS IN YOUR

LEFT SIDE, AROUND YOUR

WENDY?

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

WELL, STILL AHEAD, MEET A

MILITARY COUPLE BARELY

ABLE TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

WE REALIZED THAT WE

WERE USING CREDIT CARDS TO

PAY FOR THINGS LIKE

GROCERIES BECAUSE WE JUST

WEREN'T GETTING BY.

PANIC REALLY KIND OF

SETS IN.

THE HUGE PICTURE OF

EVERYTHING THAT SEEMS TO

BE FALLING APART ALL AT

ONCE.

Wendy: SEE WHAT SAVED

THIS FAMILY FROM FURTHER

PANIC.

THAT'S COMING UP.

THAT'S COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A NEW VIDEO FROM "LIVE

ACTION" ALLEGES THAT SOME

FACILITIES OF PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, THE NATION'S

LARGEST ABORTION PROVIDER,

WERE SETTING QUOTAS FOR

THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS

THEY WOULD PERFORM.

FORMER EMPLOYEES SAY THE

ORGANIZATION PRESSURES

CLINICS TO MEET ABORTION

QUOTAS BY ENCOURAGING

DISTRESSED WOMEN TO HAVE

ABORTIONS.

OFTENTIMES EMPLOYEES WERE

AWARDED WITH PIZZA PARTIES

AND PAID TIME OFF FOR

HITTING THEIR GOALS OF

ABORTIONS THAT MONTH.

FORMER EMPLOYEES SAY THEY

WERE TRAINED HOW TO

CONVINCE WOMEN THAT

ABORTION WAS THEIR ONLY

OPTION, AND IT HAS BEEN

GOING ON FOR YEARS.

PRO-LIFE ACTIVIST LEILA

ROSE TWEETED THIS IMAGE OF

A PLANNED PARENTHOOD AWARD

GIVEN TO A CLINIC THAT

ABORTEDED MORE BABIES THAN

IT HAD IN THE PREVIOUS

YEAR.

PRO-LIFE ACTIVISTS EXPECT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO DENY

THESE CLAIMS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PARTNERING WITH A CHURCH

IN THE WEST BANK WHERE A

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY

GATHERS TOGETHER.

THE CHURCH PROVIDES WARM

MEALS TO THE POOR IN THE

AREA.

AND NOW WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" INSTALLMENT OF

A NEW KITCHEN, THE CHURCH

NOW HAS TWO OVENS, WORKING

STAINLESS TABLES, AND

INDUSTRIAL FRIDGE,

INDUSTRIAL FREEZER AND A

MIXER.

WITH THESE TOOLS, THE

CHURCH IS NOW CONFIDENT IT

WILL BE ABLE TO FEED MORE

PEOPLE AND TEACH LOCALS

HOW TO COOK.

> YOU CAN FIND OUT

O MOR MOREMOREABOUT WHAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS DOING BY

GOING TO THEIR WEBSITE AT

O.Bob.org.

GORDON AND WENDY WILL BE

Gordon: AS A MARINE

IN COMBAT, NED IS TRAINED

TO HANDLE TOUGH

SITUATIONS.

WHILE HE IS OVERSEAS, HIS

WIFE FACES DIFFERENT KINDS

OF CHALLENGES AT HOME,

FIGURING OUT HOW TO PAY

THE BILLS.

Reporter: INT MIDST IN THE

MIDST OF WAR, NED'S JOB IS

TO CAPTURE FOOTAGE OF

COMBAT WHERE CIVILIAN

REPORTERS ARE NOT ALLOW TO

GO.

I HAD STEPPED ON A BOMB

THAT DID NOT GO OFF.

Reporter: DURING

DEPLOYMENTS, NED RELIES ON

HIS WIFE TO TAKE CARE OF

THE HOME.

HE FEELS HER JOB IS JUST

AS IMPORTANT.

IT IS ALMOST

UNBELIEVABLE WHAT SHE IS

CAPABLE OF DOING.

I FEEL LIKE SHE WOULD

HANDLE ANYTHING.

THERE IS A SENSE OF

NATIONAL PRIDE THAT COMES

WITH BEING MARRIED TO

SOMEBODY WHO CHOOSES TO

MAKE THAT SACRIFICE.

Reporter: NOT LONG

AGO, MELISSA STARTED

TAKING ONLINE COURSES TO

FINISH HER MEDICAL

TRAINING.

BUT UNTIL THEN, PAYING

BILLS ON NED'S SINGLE

SALARY WAS TOUGH.

AND ON TOP OF THAT, THE

COUPLE HAD TO OPEN A

CREDIT CARD TO PAY FOR

EXPENSES THAT THE MILITARY

DIDN'T COVER WHEN THEY

MOVED TO CAMP LEJUNE.

WE WERE USING CREDIT

CARDS TO PAY FOR THINGS

LIKE GROCERIES BECAUSE WE

JUST WEREN'T GETTING BY.

PANIC STARTS TO SET IN,

THE HUGE PICTURE OF

EVERYTHING THAT STARTS TO

BE FALLING APART ALL AT

ONCE.

Reporter: EVEN AFTER

NED TOOK ON A SECOND JOB

DELIVERING PIZZA, THEY

STILL COULDN'T GET AHEAD.

THEY PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD

GET THEM THROUGH THE

CRISIS.

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE

WAY, SOMETHING IS COMING

THAT WILL GET US OUT OF

THIS.

THAT GOD ISN'T FINISHED

AND STANDING AROUND

WAITING FOR US TO WALLOW

INTO SELF-PITY.

Reporter: THEIR

CHURCH CONTACTED CBN AND

ASKED FOR HELP.

I WAS JUST SO THANKFUL

THAT "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT" IS WILLING TO

BE AN AGENT FOR GOD IN

EXPRESSING HIS KINDNESS

AND HIS GENEROSITY.

Reporter: CAVALRY

CHAPEL'S PASTOR GREG

SCHMIDT TOLD THE COUPLE

THAT CBN WAS REIMBURSING

THEM FOR THE MOVE AND

PAYING OFF A PORTION OF

MELISSA'S TUITION.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

TO SAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

I GUESS WE START THERE.

Reporter: PASTOR GREG

HAD ONE MORE SURPRISE.

AND WE HAVE A FINANCIAL

MENTOR TO HELP YOU --

YES.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT?

I GUESS YOU COULD SAY

GOD IS GOOD.

YES, REALLY, REALLY

GOOD.

Reporter: NED AND

MELISSA MET WITH THE

FINANCIAL ADVISOR AND

MAPPED OUT A PLAN TO GET

THEM THROUGH UNTIL MELISSA

GETS HER DEGREE.

THEY GOT THEIR FAMILY

BUDGET IN TARGET JUST IN

TIME TO WELCOME THEIR NEW

SON.

I FEEL LIKE THE BIGGEST

BURDEN HAS BEEN LIFTED.

Gordon: WE WANT TO BE

PART OF LIFTING BURDENS

FOR OUR MILITARY FAMILIES.

THAT'S WHY WE CALL IT

"HELPING THE HOMEFRONT,"

BECAUSE THEY'RE SERVING,

TOO.

WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE WITH

ALL OF THE MULTIPLE

DEPLOYMENTS OUR ACTIVE

DUTY MILITARY ARE HAVING,

THEIR FAMILIES ARE

SERVING, TOO.

BECAUSE IT MEANS A SPOUSE,

IT MEANS A IMPORTANT, IS

OUT OF THE HOMPARENT, IS OUTOF THE HOUSE F OR EXTENDED

PERIODS OF TIME.

AND WE WANT TO HELP THEM,

AND YOU'RE HELPING WHEN

YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER,

JUST CALL 1-800-700-7000.

CONSIDER MAKING A SPECIAL

GIFT FOR "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT."

YOUR GIFT WILL GO DIRECTLY

TO HELP MILITARY FAMILIES.

AND WHEN YOU CALL TO JOIN

WITH US, WE'VE GOT

SOMETHING FOR YOU.

IT IS A WONDERFUL D.V.D.

SERIES, "THE SECRET

KINGDOM."

IT IS MY FATHER'S

BEST-SELLING BOOK, A "NEW

YORK TIMES" BEST-SELLER.

IT IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE

OF ALL THAT HE HAS

WRITTEN.

IT IS A WONDERFUL BOOK,

FILLED WITH BIBLICAL

PRINCIPLES, FROM THE WORDS

OF JESUS, OF HOW THE

KINGDOM OF GOD ACTS.

WHAT ARE THE LAWS OF THE

KINGDOM?

WHAT ARE HIS WAYS?

AND WHEN YOU FOLLOW THESE

WAYS, YOU FOLLOW THESE

PRINCIPLES, SOME OF THEM

SOUND COUNTER-INTUITIVE,

BUT WHEN YOU FOLLOW THEM,

WONDERFUL THINGS HAPPEN.

AND THESE ARE THE

PRINCIPLES THAT HAVE BEEN

BEHIND CBN AND THE

SPECTACULAR GROWTH OF CBN

OVER 56 YEARS.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS YOURS WHEN YOU JOIN

WITH US.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

WENDY?

Wendy: LET ME SEE IT.

YOU DIDN'T HOLD IT UP.

YOU'VE GOT TO GET THIS,

THE DYNAMIC DUO, PAT AND

GORDON.

> UP NEXT, A LOT OF

C.E.O.s BECOME CONVICTS.

BUT YOU'RE ABOUT TO MEET A

CONVICT WHO BECAME A

C.E.O.

JAY CHOCHRANE TELLS US HIS

AMAZING TURNAROUND STORY

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: JAY COUGHLIN

BECAME THE C.E.O. OF A

$430 MILLION COMPANY.

BUT NOT LONG BEFORE THAT,

HE WAS SERVING A PRISON

SENTENCE FOR VEHICULAR

HOMICIDE.

JAY MADE HIS INCREDIBLE

TURNAROUND IN JUST FOUR

YEARS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: IN 1998,

JAY COUGHLIN, A SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESSMAN, WENT HUNTING

AND DRINKING WITH HIS

FATHER.

HE DROVE HOME DRUNK AND

GOT IN A TERRIBLE

ACCIDENT.

HIS FATHER DIDN'T SURVIVE.

JAY'S LIFE BECAME A

NIGHTMARE.

AFTER GRIEVING HIS FATHER

AND SERVING JAIL TIME, HE

WAS DETERMINED TO REBOUND.

JAY SAYS ANYONE CAN TURN

THEIR LIFE AROUND AFTER

FAILURE IF THEY MAKE THE

RIGHT DECISIONS.

IN HIS BOOK, "FIVE BOLD

CHOICES," JAY SHARES HOW

TO RISE ABOVE WHATEVER

CIRCUMSTANCES ARE CLAIMING

AND RECLAIM YOUR LIFE.

Gordon: PLEASE

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB",

JAY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

Gordon: THE NIGHT OF

THE ACCIDENT, WHAT

HAPPENED?

MY DAD WAS IN TOWN FROM

PHILADELPHIA.

MY PARENTS WERE.

WE WENT TO A LOCAL HUNT

CLUB.

AFTERWARDS MY DAD AND I

STOPPED AT A BAR AND DRANK

TOO MUCH.

ON THE WAY HOME, I HIT A

TRAIN AT 60 MILES PER

HOUR.

I REMEMBER WAKING UP IN A

TRAUMA CENTER AND I'M IN A

LOT OF PAIN.

I LOOKED UP AND I SAW MY

MOM AND MY WIFE.

I COULD SEE THAT SOMETHING

WAS TERRIBLY WRONG.

MY MOM LEANED DOWN AND

SAID, YOUR DAD DIDN'T MAKE

IT.

AND I SAID, WHAT?

AND SHE SAID, YOUR DAD

DIDN'T MAKE IT.

I WENT TO A REALLY

TERRIBLE SPOT.

I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR

LOSING MY DAD.

AND FOR THE NEXT THREE

DAYS, I WENT THROUGH A LOT

OF OPERATIONS.

I WAS IN A LOT OF PAIN.

I WAS TORMENTED.

MY WIFE LOOKED IN MY EYES

AND SAID -- SHE SAID, I

LOOKED IN YOUR EYES AND

YOU WERE GONE.

AND PRIESTS AND PASTORS

WERE COMING IN, AND I

SAID, DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND

I'M RESPONSIBLE FOR MY

DAD'S DEATH.

ONE DAY, NOBODY IS IN THE

ROOM, AND A TOTAL STRANGER

COMES IN, AND HE IS USING

WORDS LIKE "FORGIVENESS"

AND "SINNER."

AND I SAID, I FEEL LIKE

I'M ON THE TOP OF THE

SINNER LIST.

I SAID A PRAYER TO RECEIVE

GOD AND TO RECEIVE JESUS.

I ADMITTED I'M A SINNER

AND I WANTED HIM IN MY

LIFE.

IT WAS, LIKE, BAM, THE

HOLY SPIRIT CONNECTED TO

MY SOUL.

AND THEN HE LEFT.

Gordon: DID YOU EVER

FIND OUT WHO HE WAS?

YEAH.

BUT MY WIFE WALKED IN AND

SAW A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

PERSON.

AND I TURNED AND LOOKED AT

HER AND I SAID, HEY, HON,

I JUST ACCEPTED JESUS INTO

MY LIFE.

Gordon: A LOT OF

PEOPLE HAVE TROUBLE

FORGIVING THEMSELVES WHEN

THEY GO THROUGH THINGS.

AND YOU START SAYING, I

KNEW BETTER.

I KNEW NOT TO DO THAT, AND

I DID IT ANYWAY.

HOW DID YOU FORGIVE

YOURSELF?

I THINK FOR ME, I WOULD

SAY YOU HAVE GOT TO LOOK

TO THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

FOR ME, IT WAS ALL THAT.

IT WAS LIKE HE CAME AND

FOUND ME.

SO I HAD THIS PHYSICAL

TRANSFORMATION, BUT IT WAS

THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

I WOULD SAY, TO THE ANSWER

OF YOUR QUESTION, IT WAS

THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

BUT I ALSO RECEIVED

FORGIVENESS FROM MY MOM

AND MY BROTHERS AND

SISTERS.

Gordon: THAT WAS A

MIRACLE, TOO?

IT WAS A MIRACLE, TOO.

NOW THAT I HAD THIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST, MY STRENGTH WAS

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NOW

THAT I WAS IN A DIFFERENT

SPOT THAN I WAS BEFORE.

I THINK YOU HAVE TO GO

LOOK AT YOURSELF.

GET ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAY

AND ASK FOR THAT POWER.

IT'S HARD, I UNDERSTAND.

GETTING FORGIVENESS IS

HARD.

BUT I THINK YOU NEED TO

LOOK TO THE CROSS IF YOU

WANT TO REALLY GET THERE.

Gordon: AND LET HIM

DO IT.

LET HIM DO IT.

Gordon: IF YOU TRY TO

DO IT IN YOUR OWN

STRENGTH, YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO GET THERE.

I DON'T THINK YOU'LL

GET THERE.

Gordon: YOU NEED A

MIRACLE, AND YOU NEED HIM.

AND YOU GET STRENGTH

AND YOU GET PEACE.

WHEN I WAS GOING THROUGH

THIS TRIAL, IT WAS

DIFFICULT BECAUSE I WAS

GUILTY.

I HAD GIVEN MY LIFE TO THE

LORD WHEN I WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL.

BUT WHEN I WAS IN THE

TRIAL, I'M GOING TO PRISON

AND I'M GOING TO LOSE MY

JOB.

I STARTED SPIRALLING OUT

OF CONTROL.

SO I STARTED READING THE

WORD FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

MY LIFE.

I REMEMBER READING

PHILIPPIANS: "DON'T WORRY

ABOUT ANYTHING."

I'M LIKE WHOA, LORD, I'M

WORRYING ABOUT EVERYTHING.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT

ANYTHING.

INSTEAD, PRAY ABOUT

EVERYTHING.

DO THIS AND YOU'LL

EXPERIENCE GOD'S PEACE.

AND I RECEIVED PEACE.

WHAT THAT MEANT WAS I

COULD SLEEP.

SO I COULD GET UP AND

FIGHT FOR MY LIFE AND MEET

MY LAWYERS AND GO TO WORK,

AS I WAS GOING THROUGH

THIS CRAZY TIME.

SO I REALLY SURRENDERED MY

LIFE AT THAT POINT.

I HAD GIVEN MY LIFE TO GOD

IN THE HOSPITAL, BUT AT

THIS POINT I WAS

SURRENDERING MY LIFE.

THERE IS AN UNBELIEVABLE

AMOUNT OF POWER AND PEACE

THAT COMES ALONG WITH

THAT.

Gordon: THERE IS.

AND WHEN YOU SAY, GOD, I

TRUST YOU WITH MY FUTURE.

I WAS GUILTY.

I'M IN A COURT SYSTEM, AND

IT IS UP TO YOU NOW.

TO ME, I HAD NOWHERE ELSE

TO GO.

Gordon: SO WHAT

HAPPENED?

I ENDED UP GETTING

SENTENCED TO SIX MONTHS.

AND THE COMPANY I WAS

WORKING FOR AT THE TIME

HAD AN EVENT, AND I MISSED

THE FIRST DAY AND THE

FIRST NIGHT AND I MISSED

THE SECOND DAY.

AND I SHOWED UP AND I

WALKED UP THE STAGE, AND

THERE WAS 300 PEOPLE IN

THE AUDIENCE, AND I GOT A

STANDING OVATION.

I WAS ON A CANE, BUT IT

LOOKED LIKE I WAS HEALED.

AND I GOT UP TO THE

MICROPHONE AFTER THE

STANDING OVATION, AND I

FELT LIKE SAYING,

YESTERDAY I WAS SENTENCED

TO SIX MONTHS IN JAIL, 10

MONTHS PROBATION, AND WHAT

KIND OF A ROLLER COASTER

RIDE ARE YOU ON?

THE DIFFERENCE NOW IS I

HAVE A FOUNDATION TO DEAL

WITH THIS.

DEAL WITH THE ROLLER

COASTER OF LIFE.

WE'RE ALL GOING TO HAVE

HIGHS AND LOWS.

BUT WHERE ARE YOU GOING

FOR YOUR POWER?

WHERE ARE YOU GOING FOR

YOUR PEACE?

WHERE ARE YOU GOING FOR

YOUR WISDOM?

SO I GOT SIX MONTHS AND 10

YEARS.

Gordon: YOU THEN WENT

ON TO MAKE SOME BOLD

CHOICES THAT YOU WRITE

ABOUT THAT LED TO, BY ALL

ACCOUNTS, AN INCREDIBLE

SUCCESS.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE

MOST IMPORTANT CHOICE YOU

MADE?

I THINK FOR ME IT WAS

HAVING CLARITY.

BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT

CHOICE WAS ACCEPTING JESUS

IN MY LIFE.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, IT

WAS HAVING CLARITY.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO?

HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE

DEFINED?

I DID NOT WANT TO BE

DEFINED BY MY WORST

MOMENT.

SO THE ISSUE WAS I SPENT

VERY LITTLE TIME LOOKING

BACKWARDS, AND I WAS

MAINLY LOOKING FORWARD.

I DESCRIBE I HAVE A SMALL

REAR-VIEW MIRROR AND A

GIANT WINDSHIELD.

AND I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW

MANY PEOPLE SAID, YOU

CAN'T DO THAT, YOU CAN'T

DO THAT.

AND I SPENT NO TIME

LISTENING TO THEM.

IT WAS ALL WHERE DO I WANT

TO GO?

WHAT DO I WANT TO

ACCOMPLISH?

AND GOING ABOUT DOING

THAT.

KEEP THE IMPORTANT THINGS

IMPORTANT.

AND WHAT DO YOU SAY NO TO

BECOMES EXTREMELY

IMPORTANT.

Gordon: WHEN YOU HAVE

THE CLARITY, IT IS

IMPORTANT TO SAY NO.

I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE

BOOK, AND ITS CALLED "FIVE

BOLD CHOICES, RISE ABOVE

YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES AND

REDEFINE YOUR LIFE."

WE'LL HAVE MORE ON THIS,

AND THERE IS A WEB

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ON

THIS ON OR Facebook

PAGE.

GO TO Facebook SLEDGE

SLEDGE.

Facebook.com/700club.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

WE'LL BRING IT ON WITH

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT, IT

IS TIME TO "BRING IT ON".

LINDA WRITES IN, "THE

PEOPLE TEACHES US THAT GOD

WILL FORGIVE ALL OF OUR

SINS.

IT ALWAYS TELLS US IF WE

DON'T FORGIVE OTHERS, HE

WILL NOT FORGIVE US.

DOES THIS MEAN A CHRISTIAN

WHO DOES NOT FORGIVE

SOMEONE FROM HARMING HIM

WILL NO LONGER BE SAVED?"

GORDON?

Gordon: I THINK

GETTING INTO IS IT GOING

TO TAKE AWAY YOUR

SALVATION I THINK IS AN

ABSOLUTE MISTAKE.

BECAUSE IT IS GOING TO GET

YOU INTO LEGALISM.

JESUS CAME TO SET US FREE

FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND

DEATH.

SO WALK IN THAT FREEDOM.

IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE

FORGIVING SOMEONE, JUST

TELL GOD YOU'RE HAVING

TROUBLE FORGIVING THEM.

AND CAN HE FORGIVE THEM

THROUGH YOU, AND CAN HE

GIVE YOU THAT HEART OF

FORGIVENESS.

DON'T GO DOWN THE ROAD OF

STARTING TO QUESTION YOUR

SALVATION.

WHY WERE YOU SAVED?

BECAUSE GOD CHOSE YOU.

I LIKE TO REMIND GOD OF

THAT, THAT HE CHOSE ME.

HE IS THE ONE THAT GOT ME

IN THIS, AND HE'LL SEE ME

THROUGH.

AND HE IS ABLE TO PRESENT

YOU FAULTLESS IN HIS

PRESENCE WITH EXCEEDINGLY

JOY.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALMS: "THE

LORD REDEEMS THE SOUL OF

HIS SERVANTS, AND NONE OF

THOSE WHO TRUST IN HIM

SHALL BE CONDEMNED."
