>> I WOULD WAKE UP AND BE DEADLY TIRED.

>> FOR THREE YEARS HIS BODY WAS FAILING ON HIM.

>> I'M LIKE, FORGET IT. JUST LET ME DIE.

>> THEN CAME THE DIAGNOSIS. >> THAT REALLY HURT.

>> ALS. >> OH MY GOSH.

IT'S GOING TO GET WORSE THAN IT IS.

>> HOW HE STARED DOWN A DEATH SENTENCE.

>> IT WAS AROUND THAT TIME THAT MY FINGERS WERE STARTING TO

CRUMP UP. >> AND WALKED AWAY HEALED.

>> ON TODAY'S 700 CLUB. >>> WELCOME TO THIS EDITION OF

THE 700 CLUB. EXCITING DAY.

FIRST OF ALL, DEADLY FUNGUS SWEEPING THE EARTH AND THEY'RE

NOT SURE WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO CURE IT.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER.

THERE'S A VICIOUS STORM BREWING IN THE MIDDLE PART OF THE

NATION. BLIZZARD CONDITIONS EVEN THOUGH

IT'S SPRING. LOOKS LIKE IT'S SPREADING EAST.

HASIDIC JEWS IN BROOKLYN MAY GET FINES IF THEY DON'T GET

INOCULATED AGAINST MEASLES. WE GO OUT TO ISRAEL AND OUR

FRIEND PULLED IT OFF, A BIG ONE.

HE GOT FOUR MORE SEATS THAN HE HAD BEFORE.

HIS LIKUD PARTY IS FORMING A COALITION AND IT WILL BE

HISTORIC BECAUSE AS I UNDERSTAND THERE'S NOBODY IN

HISTORY EVEN AS FAR AS DAVID BENGORIAN WHO HAS BEEN IN

OFFICE AS LONG AS OUR FRIEND BB. WE CONGRATULATE THE VOTERS IN

ISRAEL FOR THAT WISDOM. HOW TO HEAL THE SCARS FROM A

ROUGH CAMPAIGN. >> WHEN THE VOTING STOPPED

TUESDAY NIGHT, BENNY GANTZ SUPPORTERS PREPARED FOR AN

UPSET IN THE MAKING. THEIR BRAND NEW PARTY HAD A

NARROW LEAD IN THE POLLS. IN THE PRIME MINISTER'S CAMP IT

WAS SO QUIET THE MEDIA FAR OUTNUMBERED THE PRIME

MINISTER'S LIKUD FAITHFUL. BUT THAT HAD ALL CHANGED BY THE

WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING. ALTHOUGH THE FIRST EXIT POLLS

SHOWED A VIRTUAL DEAD HEAT BETWEEN THE PRO BB RIGHT AND

THE ANTI-BB LEFT, AS THE NIGHT WORE ON THE PRIME MINISTER'S

SUPPORTERS GREW MORE HOPEFUL THAT BB WOULD BE ABLE TO FORM

THE NEXT GOVERNMENT AND BECOME THE LONGEST SERVING LEADER IN

ISRAEL'S HISTORY. EVEN AFTER 97% OF THE VOTES

WERE COUNTED WEDNESDAY, LESS THAN A PERCENTAGE POINT

SEPARATED LIKUD FROM THE BLUE AND WHITE PARTY.

SOME SPECULATED A UNITY GOVERNMENT BETWEEN NETANYAHU

AND GANTZ WOULD HELP THE COUNTRY HEAL FROM A BITTER

ELECTION AND RESPOND TO THREATS FROM IRAN AND HAMAS.

>> THE COALITION IS NOT CLEAR YET BECAUSE WE NEED TO SEE WHO

ARE THE PARTY THAT ARE IN THE GAME.

TWO DAYS FROM NOW WE'LL BE SMARTER ABOUT THE COALITION.

ONE THING WE KNOW ABOUT AND FOR SURE, NETANYAHU IS THE NEXT

PRIME MINISTER. >> I INTEND TO WORK QUICKLY TO

ESTABLISH A STABLE GOVERNMENT. I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR IT WILL

BE A RIGHT WING GOVERNMENT BUT I INTEND TO BE THE PRIME

MINISTER OF ALL ISRAELI CITIZENS.

RIGHT OR LEFT. JEWS OR NONJEWS ALIKE.

ALL ISRAELI CITIZENS. >> NETANYAHU IS ALREADY PHONED

MANY PROBABLE PARTNERS IN HIS LATEST COALITION.

ALMOST CERTAINLY A GOVERNMENT OF THE RIGHT.

>>> WELL OUR CBN MIDDLE EAST BUREAU CHIEF CHRIS MITCHELL

JOINS US NOW. CHRIS, ONE OF THE MIN FACTORS

THAT BROUGHT IN IT BB'S VICTORY?

>> YOU HAVE TO SAY THE ANTI-BB CAMPAIGN DIDN'T WORK.

JUST SAYING ANYBODY BUT BB IS NOT SOMEONE YOU WANT TO GOVERN

WITH. ONE CALLED IT A FANTASY

CANDIDATE. I THINK THAT'S ONE THING.

I DON'T THINK YOU CAN UNDERESTIMATE THE IMPACT OF THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION JUST A FEW DAYS AGO.

NETANYAHU WAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNED A DECLARATION RECOGNIZING ISRAELI

SOVEREIGNTY OVER THE GOLAN HEIGHTS.

MIKE POMPEO WAS HERE JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO.

I THINK THAT'S ONE OTHER FACTOR.

THE THIRD FACTOR I THINK YOU SAY IS NETANYAHU THE

POLITICIAN. Y CAN SAY IT IN A YIDDISH WAY.

ABOUT FOUR DAYS AGO HE WAS SAYING THE SKY'S FALLING, YOU

HAVE TO GO TO THE POLLS. IF YOU DON'T BLUE AND WHITE IS

GOING TO WIN. ONE POLITICAL CONSULTANT TOLD

ME LAST NIGHT THE FINAL FOUR JUST ENDED A FEW DAYS AGO, YOU

WANT THE BEST PLAYER TO HAVE THE BALL IN THE HANDS AT THE

END OF THE CITIES THAT ARE JUST THRIVING,

WONDERFUL, VIBRANT CITIES. THEY'RE NOT LITTLE SETTLEMENTS

OUT IN THE DESERT. WHAT HE'S SAYING IS HE'S GOING

TO MAKE EACH ONE OF THOSE PLACES PART OF ISRAEL?

THEY'LL BE ISRAELI CITIZENS? COULD YOU EXPAND ON THAT?

>> WELL I THINK THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HE'S GOING TO DO, PAT.

HE ANNOUNCED JUST A FEW DAYS, MAYBE THREE, FOUR DAYS BEFORE

THE ELECTION THAT HE WILL SAY THAT ALL OF THE JEWISH

COMMUNITIES, INCLUDING THE LARGER SETTLEMENT BLOCS WILL BE

UNDER ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY. IN ANY FUTURE NEGOTIATIONS WITH

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY THAT WILL BASICALLY BE OFF THE

TABLE. I THINK THAT WAS ONE OF THE

FACTORS I THINK THAT SWUNG SOME OF THE VOTERS CERTAINLY ON THE

RIGHT TOWARDS NETANYAHU. THAT'S GOING TO BE ONE OF THE

BIGGER THINGS LOOKING FORWARD TO NOW THAT NETANYAHU IS GOING

TO FORM HIS GOVERNMENT, PRESUMABLY IN A FEW WEEKS TO

SEE HOW HE FOLLOWS THROUGH ON THAT PROMISE.

IT'S HISTORIC TO SEE HE WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT TO

RECOGNIZE ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY OVER JEWISH COMMUNITIES AND THE

BIBLICAL LANDS. >> AS I LOOK AT IT AND I'VE

BEEN THERE SO MANY TIMES AND YOU LIVE THERE.

THERE IS NO WAY THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TWO STATES.

THE PALESTINIANS JUST AREN'T PARTNERS FOR PEACE.

HAMAS IS SO POWERFUL IN THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY.

THEY CALL FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL.

HOW CAN THEY EVER GET TOGETHER? THAT TWO STATE SOLUTION IN MY

OPINION ISN'T GOING TO WORK. AM I CORRECT IN THAT?

>> I THINK SO, PAT. SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT WHEN

NETANYAHU SAID THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY

OVER THE JEWISH COMMUNITIES ALSO KNOWN Z AT WEST BANK THAT

THE TWO STATE SOLUTION WAS DEAD.

I THINK IT'S BEEN DEAD FOR A LONG TIME.

WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE NOT ONLY WHAT HAMAS SAYS AND THEY SAY IT

QUITE OPENLY. THEY WANT THE DESTRUCTION OF

ISRAEL, THE JEWISH STATE. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE

COMMENTS AND THE, ESPECIALLY IN ARABIC BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY OR MANY OTHER PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

HEAT LEADERS, THEY WANT A ONE STATE SOLUTION TOO.

THEY WANT TO TAKE OVER THE JEWISH STATE.

SO I THINK THAT MAKES A TWO STATE SOLUTION VERY, VERY

UNLIKELY. >> IS IT POSSIBLE HE'S GOING TO

HAVE PARLIAMENT PASS A LAW IF GIVING IMMUNITY TO THE PRIME

MINISTER? >> THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY OF

THAT A LITTLE WHILE AGO. NETANYAHU BACKED AWAY FROM THAT

PARTICULAR LEGISLATION. BUT I THINK THAT'S ONE CLOUD

HANGING OVER NETANYAHU RIGHT NOW.

FOR MONTHS THE PROSECUTOR HAS SORT OF BEEN ON THE OFFENSIVE.

MAKING ACCUSATIONS ABOUT WHAT NETANYAHU DID IN THESE THREE

CASES HE'S BEEN INTENDED TO INDICT.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL INTENDS TO INDICT ON THREE SEPARATE

CHARGES. BUT NOW NETANYAHU LEGALLY HAS

THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO ON THE OFFENSIVE.

SO HE WILL HAVE MONTHS, AS MANY UP TO A YEAR PERHAPS IF MORE TO

DEFEND HIS CASE RIGHT NOW. WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS BUT

THAT'S ONE OF THE OTHER BIG THINGS TO BE LOOKING FOR AFTER

THIS ELECTION. >> I THOUGHT THE SO-CALLED

CRIMES THAT HE HAD COMMITTED ARE JUST ABSURD.

I MEAN HE GOT FAVORABLE PUBLICITY FROM ONE OF THE

PUBLICATIONS. ONE OF THE BROADCAST NETWORKS.

THIS IS NONSENSE. TO INDICT A MAN ON SOMETHING

LIKE THAT IS JUST SPURIOUS. IS THAT JUST MY OPINION?

DON'T SAY SO IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME?

>> NO, I DON'T THINK IT'S JUST YOUR OPINION.

I THINK ALLEN DURSHOWITZ MADE A CASE JUST BEFORE THE ATTORNEY

GENERAL CAME OUT WITH HIS DECISION, SAYS YOU CAN INDICT A

LOT OF POLITICIANS IF THEY TRY TO GET GOOD FAVORABLE COVERAGE

THROUGH THE MEDIA. AND SO I THINK THAT'S IN

ESSENCE SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT'S WHAT NETANYAHU IS BEING

ACCUSED OF. IT'S THE OPINION NOT ONLY OF

YOU BUT I WOULD BELIEVE OTHER LEGAL EXPERTS.

>> LAST QUESTION, WHO'S GOING TO BE OUT OF THE COALITION?

WHO'S GOING TO BE IN IT? >> WELL RIGHT NOW, OBVIOUSLY

LIKUD IS A BIG ONE. WE HAVE THREE RELIGIOUS PARTIES

THAT ARE PART OF THAT AS WELL. ANOTHER PARTY, UP TO 65 SEATS

LOOKS LIKE RIGHT NOW. REALLY THE POWER SHIFTS TO HIM

RIGHT NOW. NEXT WEEK HE'S GOING TO HAVE

CONSULTATIONS WITH ALL OF THE POLITICAL PARTIES AND DECIDE

WHO IS GOING TO BE THE ONE TO FORM THE NEXT COALITION.

RIGHT NOW THE NUMBERS SAY OBVIOUSLY IT'S GOING TO BE

NETANYAHU LOOKING FORWARD. THE OTHER BIG THING WE'LL HAVE

TO LOOK FORWARD TO, PAT IS THE UNVEILING OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

PEACE PLAN. THE SO-CALLED DEAL OF THE

CENTURY. HE SAID, THE ADMINISTRATION

SAID IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AFTER THE ELECTIONS.

THAT'S ONE OF THE NEXT BIG THINGS WE'LL HAVE TO LOOK

TOWARD TO. >> ALL RIGHT.

THANKS FOR JR. INSIGHTS. >>> IN OTHER NEWS ATTORNEY

GENERAL WILLIAM BARR FACED A GRILLING OVER HIS HANDLING OF

THE MUELLER REPORT. MORE ON THAT.

>> THANKS, PAT. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TOLD

LAWMAKERS HE'S ON TRACK TO RELEASE A REDACTED VERSION OF

THE NEARLY 400 PAGE MUELLER REPORT NEXT WEEK.

HE FACED A HOUSE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE OVER THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT'S BUDGET. THE TOPIC SOON TURNED TO HIS

HANDING OF THE MUELLER PROBE. SOME ACCUSE HIM OF, IGNORING

SUMMARIES BY THE SPECIAL COUNSEL'S TEAM.

>> I THINK ANY SUMMARY REGARDLESS OF WHO PREPARES IT

NOT ONLY RUNS THE RISK OF BEING UNDERINCLUSIVE OR

OVERINCLUSIVE, BUT ALSO, YOU KNOW, WOULD TRIGGER A LOT OF

DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS THAT REALLY SHOULD AWAIT EVERYTHING

COMING OUT AT ONCE. >> BARR ALSO SAID HE'S

OVERSEEING AN INVESTIGATION INTO WHETHER THE FBI ABUSED ITS

AUTHORITY IN GETTING WIRETAPS ON TRUMP AIDES.

HE TESTIFIES TODAY. >> THAT'S THE BIG STORY.

WHO AT THE FBI WAS TRYING TO GUN FOR TRUMP AND DESTROY HIM

BEFORE HE GOT ELECTED. THE PLOT GOING ON AND ALL THOSE

WARRANTS THAT WERE GOT AND THE VARIOUS WIRETAPS AND THE REPORT

THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FROM A BRITISH SECRET SOURCE OR SPY.

THIS WHOLE THING IS RIDICULOUS. I THINK IT'S TIME FOR AN

INVESTIGATION. BARR IS SAYING THAT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN. BUT IN TERMS OF GRAND JURY

TESTIMONY AND INCIDENTAL MATERIAL THAT IS GAINED BY FBI

AGENTS, THAT SHOULD NEVER BE MADE PUBLIC.

I MEAN EVERYBODY BELIEVES THAT SHOULD NEVER BE MADE PUBLIC AND

IT WAS THE CHAIRMAN OF ONE OF THE HOUSE COMMITTEES BEFORE

THIS WHOLE THING CAME UP THAT HE HIMSELF WENT ON THE RECORD

TO SAY WE CANNOT PUBLISH ALL THAT STUFF BECAUSE IT IS

UNVERIFIED AND IT'S DEFAMATORY. WELL IT'S THE SAME THING HERE.

SHOULDN'T BE DONE. THE DEMOCRATS DEMANDING FOR IT,

THEY'RE NOT HELPING THEMSELVES. THEY'RE HURTING THEMSELVES.

JOHN. >> PAT, THERE'S A NEW PUSH FOR

AN OLD PRO-LIFE MEASURE ON CAPITOL HILL.

LAWMAKERS ARE BRINGING BACK THE FIGHT TO BAN ABORTIONS AFTER

FIVE MONTHS OF PREGNANCY. THEIR ARGUMENT, BABIES BEING

ABORTED FEEL PAIN. CAPITOL HILL CORRESPONDENT

EXPLAINS. >> ONLY SEVEN COUNTRIES

CURRENTLY ALLOW ELECTIVE ABORTIONS AFTER FIVE MONTHS OF

PREGNANCY. INCLUDING NORTH KOREA, CHINA

AND VIETNAM. THE UNITED STATES IS PART OF

THAT SMALL GROUP AND SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM HOPES TO CHANGE

THAT THROUGH THE UNBORN CHILD PROTECTION ACT.

>> I THINK MOST PEOPLE ONCE THEY KNOW ABOUT WHAT WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT THAT WILL GAIN MOMENTUM.

>> THE BILL WOULD RESTRICT ABORTIONS ON DEMAND AFTER FIVE

MONTHS OF PREGNANCY. BECAUSE OF MOUNTING EVIDENCE

PROVING BABIES IN THE WOMB FEEL PAIN.

>> AS THE OPPONENTS OF THIS BILL TO DISPUTE THE FACT THAT

ANESTHESIA IS PROVIDED ROUTINELY TO A CHILD WHO IS IN

THE FIFTH MONTH OF THE PREGNANCY.

TO PROTECT THE CHILD FROM THE PAIN THAT WOULD OCCUR TO SAVE

ITS LIFE THROUGH SURGERY. >> DEMOCRAT SENATOR RICHARD

BLUMENTHAL TELLS CBN NEWS HE BELIEVES THE BILL IS A HOAX.

>> THE BILL AS A WHOLE IS UNSUPPORTED BY SCIENCE.

IT HAS NO FOUNDATION IN THIS FACT.

AND IT VIOLATES THE CONSTITUTION.

>> THERE'S SO MUCH THAT WOMEN AREN'T TOLD.

>> ACCORDING TO A POLL LAST MONTH, 66% OF ALL VOTERS WANT

THIS LAW PASSED. >> THE TIDE IS TURNING IN

AMERICA. AMERICANS ARE BECOMING MORE AND

MORE PRO-LIFE. >> SHE TESTIFIED ALONGSIDE

ABORTION SURVIVOR MELISSA ODIN. >> THE EXTREME ABORTION

LEGISLATION IS WORRISOME. IT'S PAINFUL.

>> SOME DEMOCRATS ON THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WHO ARE

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT SKIPPED THE HEARING.

>> IT WAS REALLY TELLING THAT THEY DON'T WANT TO GO ON THE

RECORD AND MAYBE BE SEEN AS BEING SO EXTREME THAT THEY

WOULD OPPOSE THIS COMMON SENSE LAW.

COMMON SENSE BILL THAT THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS AGREE ON.

EVEN PRO-CHOICE AMERICANS. >> SENATOR GRAHAM SAYS HE KNOWS

GETTING THE VOTES IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE WILL BE TOUGH RIGHT

NOW. BUT HE'S COMMITTED TO FIGHT FOR

THIS OVER THE LONG HAUL. REPORTING FROM CAPITOL HILL,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN NEWS. >> THANKS.

>>> A SPIKE IN CASES OF MEASLES HAS NEW YORK CITY DECLARING A

PUBLIC HEALTH ENERGY. OFFICIALS THERE ARE REQUIRING

CHILDREN BE VACCINATED AND WILL FINE PARENTS UP TO $1000 IF

THEY'RE NOT. THE PROBLEM IS GROWING IN OTHER

PARTS OF THE COUNTRY AS WELL. 465 CASES ACROSS 19 STATES.

IN SOME STATES UNVACCINATED STUDENTS ARE BEING TOLD TO STAY

HOME. >>> A MYSTERIOUS FUNGUS THAT'S

HARD TO DETECT IS NOW LABELED AN URGENT THREAT BY THE CENTERS

FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION.

RECENTLY IT'S TURNED UP IN NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, CONNECTICUT

AND ILLINOIS. IT'S OFTEN MULTIDRUG RESISTANT

ACCORDING TO THE CDC. AND IS CALLED A MYSTERY BECAUSE

IT'S DIFFICULT TO IDENTIFY WITH STANDARD LAB TESTS.

IT'S ALSO CAUSED OUTBREAKS IN HEALTHCARE FACILITIES.

>>> IT MIGHT BE SPRING BUT OLD MAN WINTER DIDN'T GET THE MEMO.

STATES FROM THE ROCKIES TO THE GREAT LAKES ARE UNDER A

BLIZZARD WARNING TODAY. FORECASTERS PREDICTING 6 TO 18

INCHES OF SNOW AND WINDS UP TO 65 MILES PER HOUR IN COLORADO.

A MAJOR SWING GOING FROM 80- DEGREE WEATHER TO WHITEOUT

CONDITIONS. THE STORM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE

INTO THE NORTHEAST TURNING INTO HEAVY RAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS.

>> WON'T LET GO, DOES IT? THOSE POOR PEOPLE IN THE

MIDWEST AND NEBRASKA, FOR EXAMPLE, THE FARMERS ARE

SUFFERING INCREDIBLE FLOODING AND NOW THE SO-CALLED BOMB

CYCLONE. IF THAT ISN'T IT, IT'S CLOSE TO

IT, WITH BLIZZARD CONDITIONS. 50, 60 MILE-AN-HOUR WIND AND

BLINDING SNOW. MEANS THAT TRAFFIC WILL BE

IMPASSABLE. THE ROADS WILL BE IMPASSABLE.

AIRPLANES WILL BE GROUNDED. I MEAN IT'S JUST INCREDIBLE.

HERE WE ARE IN VIRGINIA AND IT'S BALMY AND IN THE 70s.

>> I WAS FLYING IN LAST NIGHT FROM INDIANA AND YOU DON'T

THINK OKAY IN MID APRIL YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE

WEATHER. WE HAD TO HOVER OVER ATLANTA

THE PILOT CAME ON TWICE SAID WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GO TO

ATLANTA AND CHATTANOOGA TO REFUEL BECAUSE THERE'S 30

PLANES BECAUSE OF THUNDERSTORMS.

YOU GET THESE BIG STORMS AND NOW ALL THIS CRAZY WEATHER

HAPPENING OUT IN THE MIDWEST. >> OF COURSE TORNADOES AND ALL

KINDS OF THINGS IN THE SOUTH. DOWN IN ALABAMA, VERY STRONG

WINDS. S IT JUST INCREDIBLE WEATHER

WE'VE GOT. >> WE DID NOT HAVE TO GO TO

CHATTANOOGA. WE GOT PERMISSION TO LAND.

I MADE IT HOME LAST NIGHT. PRAISE THE LORD.

>> GLAD YOU'RE HERE. >>> THE WAR ON YOUR BRAIN.

>> WE'RE IN A WAR IN OUR SOCIETY.

ISIS HAS NOTHING ON OUR FOOD INDUSTRY.

RIGHT? THE REAL WEAPONS OF MASS

DESTRUCTION ARE HIGHLY PROCESSED PESTICIDE SPRAYED,

HIGH GLYCEMIC, FOOD-LIKE SUBSTANCES STORED IN PLASTIC

CONTAINERS. >> HOW TO FIGHT DEPRESSION AND

OTHER ASSAULTS ON YOUR BRAIN WITH FOOD.

REALLY INTERESTING STUFF COMING UP NEXT.

>>> AMERICANS SHOULD BE THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE ON EARTH.

WE'VE GOT MORE PROSPERITY. WE'VE GOT MORE OPPORTUNITY.

WE'VE GOT MORE OF EVERYTHING. AND IT'S A BEAUTIFUL

ENVIRONMENT. WE HAVE CLEAN, FRESH WATER.

WE HAVE PLENTY OF FOOD. WE'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF JOBS

AVAILABLE TO US. YET ONE OUT OF EVERY TEN

AMERICANS SAYS I'M SUFFERING FROM DEPRESSION.

EXPERTS SUSPECT MILLIONS MORE SUFFER FROM IT IN SILENCE.

A NUMBER OF STEPS CAN HELP PEOPLE BREAK FREE AND SOME OF

THESE STEPS MIGHT SURPRISE YOU. >> PEOPLE BATTLING DEPRESSION

FEEL, IN A WORD, HOPELESS. THEY LACK ENERGY, FOCUS AND ARE

OFTEN OVERCOME WITH ANXIETY. >> RELATIONSHIPS TAKE A HUGE

HIT WHEN IT COMES TO DEPRESSION.

SO DOES PRODUCTIVITY. SO THE TUNE OF $23 BILLION A

YEAR IN LOST WAGES. >> CHRISTIAN PSYCHIATRIST

DANIEL AMEN SAYS SCIENTIFIC IMAGING SHOWS UNHEALTHY

LIFESTYLES OFTEN TRIGGER DEPRESSION.

WHILE BETTER CHOICES CAN TURN THINGS AROUND.

>> HERE AT AMEN CLINICS WE LOOK AT PEOPLES BRAINS.

WE HAVE A DATABASE OF 150,000 SCANS ON PEOPLE FROM 120

COUNTRIES. WHEN I STARTED LOOKING INTO

BRAIN, I'M LIKE OH, WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER OR WE CAN MAKE IT

WORSE. >> THIS LED TO A PROGRAM

WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. FEEL BETTER FAST AND MAKE IT

LAST. STEP ONE, EAT RIGHT.

BECAUSE THE STANDARD AMERICAN DIET CAN SABOTAGE OUR BRAIN.

>> WE'RE IN IT A WAR IN OUR SOCIETY.

ISIS HAS NOTHING ON OUR FOOD INDUSTRY.

THE REAL WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION ARE HIGHLY

PROCESSED PESTICIDE SPRAYED. HIGH GLYCEMIC.

RAISESYOUR BLOOD SUGAR. FOOD-LIKE SUBSTANCES STORED IN

PLASTIC CONTAINERS. >> ALSO BACKS UP WHAT WE'VE

BEEN REPORTING. PUT GOOD BACTERIA IN YOUR GUT

BECAUSE THE MICROBIOM INFLUENCES MOOD BIG TIME.

>> IF YOU CHANGE YOUR DIET, ADD MORE COLORFUL FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES AND GET RID OF SUGAR AND FOODS THAT QUICKLY TURN TO

SUGAR AND PROCESSED FOODS, IT'S BEEN FOUND TO BE AN EFFECTIVE

TREATMENT FOR DEPRESSION. YES, YOU CAN GO FOR THE

ANTIDEPRESSANTS. THEY HAVE ALL THESE SIDE

EFFECTS. >> I THINK EVERYBODY SHOULD BE

TAKING OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS EVERY DAY.

WE HAVE A CRISIS OF LOW LEVELS OF OMEGA 3. WHY SHOULD YOU

CARE? WELL 25% OF YOUR BRAIN IS MADE

UP WITH OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS. IF YOU'RE LOW, YOU'RE NOT

THINKING RIGHT. >> THAT CAUSES MANY SUFFERERS

TO TURN TO SCREENS. LIKE TV, SOCIAL MEDIA AND VIDEO

GAMES. >> DIGITAL ADDICTIONS.

SO COMMON. THINGS LIKE PORNOGRAPHY.

LOOKING AT THINGS YOU SHOULDN'T LOOK AT.

EVEN THE NEGATIVE NEWS. THE BRAIN PAYS ATTENTION TO

SCARY THINGS WAY BEFORE IT PAYS ATTENTION TO HAPPY THINGS.

>> AND ALL THIS HAPPENS WHILE SITTING OR LYING AROUND.

INACTIVITY ANOTHER RISK FACTOR. ON THE FLIP SIDE, EXERCISE

RELEASES ENDORPHINS OUR BRAINS FEEL GOOD CHEMICALS AND

IMPROVES THE HIPPO CAMPUS. THE REGION OF THE BRAIN THAT

HELPS REGULATE MOOD. WORKING OUT ALSO HELPS US GET

OUR ZZZZs. >> SLEEP IS SO IMPORTANT.

RIGHT? YOU SHOULD BE TARGETING AT

LEAST SEVEN HOURS OF SLEEP AT NIGHT.

WHEN YOU HAVE A BAD DAY, IT'S OFTEN BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T SLEEP

RIGHT. >> AND LISTEN TO THIS, PARENTS,

ATHLETES AND SOLDIERS. >> MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN

INJURIES A MAJOR CAUSE OF PSYCHIATRIC ILLNESS AND NOBODY

KNOWS ABOUT IT. DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN HIT

SOCCER BALLS WITH THEIR HEAD. DO NOT LET THEM PLAY FOOTBALL.

IT DAMAGES YOUR BRAIN. >> ALL OF US FEEL EMOTIONALLY

LOW AT TIMES AND REACH FOR A QUICK PICK ME UP.

THE TRICK IS CHOOSING SOMETHING THAT'LL MAKE US FEEL BETTER NOW

AND LATER. THIS MEANS SAFELY APPEALING TO

ALL FIVE SENSES. >> VISION IS SO IMPORTANT.

30% OF YOUR BRAIN IS DEDICATED TO VISION.

>> IMAGES OF NATURE AND NEVER ENDING PATTERNS CALLED FRACKALS

DO THE TRICK. THEN ADD IN THE SOUND OF THE

OCEAN OR YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC. >> WHAT ARE THE SCENTS THAT CAN

HELP YOU FEEL BETTER FAST? AND LAVENDER HAS BEEN SHOWN TO

DECREASE ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION.

>> AND TOUCH. GET A MASSAGE OR HOLD THE HAND

OF A HAPPY PERSON. >> THERE'S AN INTERESTING STUDY

THAT IF YOU HOLD THE HAND OF SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR

BRAIN WAVES BEGIN TO SYNC. SO YOU WANT TO BE VERY CAREFUL

WITH WHOSE HAND YOU HOLD. >> WHILE FAR TOO MANY AMERICANS

DEAL WITH DEPRESSION, SOME CASES, NOT ALL, APPEAR TO BE

LINKED TO OUR FOOD SUPPLY ANUSOLTURE.

FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE, LIFESTYLE CHANGES CAN HELP RESTORE JOY

AND PEACE. LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

>> VERY PERSPECTIVE. THE STORIES TOLD ABOUT A MAN

SUFFERING WITH TERRIBLE DEPRESSION.

HE JUST WANTED TO DIE. SO HE FIGURED HE COULD JUST RUN

HIMSELF TO A POINT WHERE HE'D HAVE A HEART ATTACK AND THAT

WOULD KILL HIM. HE STARTED RUNNING AS HARD AS

HE COULD. THE NEXT DAY HE WENT ON A RUN

AS HARD AS HE COULD. HE DID IT AGAIN AND AFTER A

COUPLE OF WEEKS HE FELT SO GOOD HE DIDN'T WANT TO DIE.

YOU DON'T KILL YOURSELF, THERE ARE WAYS TO STAY ALIVE AND TO

WATCH THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW WITH DR. AMEN, TUNE IN TO HEALTHY

LIVING ON THE CBN NEWS CHANNEL TONIGHT AT 9:30 EASTERN TIME.

>> REMINDS ME I USED TO GO WHEN I WENT TO THE GYM I TOOK THIS

AB CLASS AND THE GUY USED TO ALWAYS SAY NOBODY WITH ABS CAN

EVER BE DEPRESSED AND SO IT WOULD JUST MAKE YOU WANT TO DO

MORE SITUPS. EXERCISE IS, THEY DIDN'T

MENTION DARK CHOCOLATE IN THERE.

>> DARK CHOCOLATE IS FANTASTIC. >> THIS WHOLE THING ABOUT THE

GUT NO ARE THAT WE'VE EMPHASIZED SO MUCH.

I THINK PART OF THAT IF FUNGUS THING WOULD BE CURED THEY GIVE

SO MANY ANTIBIOTICS. WE'RE LOADED UP.

THE ANTIBIOTICS KILL THE GUT NO A. THEY WIPE THEM OUT TOTALLY.

SO LITTLE CHILDREN, THEY HIT THEM WITH AN ANTIBIOTIC BECAUSE

THEY HAVE THE SNIFFLES. NEXT THING YOU KNOW THEY DON'T

HAVE GUT FLORA. THAT NEXT BRAIN ISN'T

COMMUNICATING WITH THE REGULAR BRAIN AND THERE ARE SO MANY

TRILLIONS OF MICROBES IN THIS THE GUT IF THEY'RE HEALTHY AND

THEY'RE BALANCED AS THEY SHOULD BE THEN THE WHOLE MICRO BIOM,

THE HUMAN BEING IS HEALTHIER. I THINK WE CAN WARD OFF THAT

FUNGUS. I THINK THAT IS JUST SWEEPING

THE WORLD AND EVERYBODY'S SO AFRAID OF.

I THINK WE'D BE CURED BY PEOPLE WHO WERE EATING PROPERLY AND

HAVING THAT GUT THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

YOU KNOW, SOMETHING CALLED GARDEN OF LIFE AND I LIKE WHAT

THEY GO, THEY'VE GOT PROBIOTIC PILLS, ABOUT THREE OF THEM A

DAY. YOU LOOK WHERE THEY LOCATE

THEY'RE IN THE REFRIGERATING PART OF THE HEALTH FOOD STORE

OR SUPERMARKET OR WHAT HAVE YOU AND GARDEN OF LIFE IS THE ONE I

KNOW. MAY BE OTHERS.

ANYHOW, THREE OF THOSE AND A PREBIOTIC IF WHICH FEEDS THEM.

BEANS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. CABBAGE.

>> I'VE SEEN, THAT'S A GOOD BRAND.

>> I TAKE THREE A DAY. I TAKE ONE OF THOSE PREBIOTICS.

THE GUT FLORA NEEDS SOMETHING TO FEED ON.

YOU GIVE IT SOMETHING TO FEED ON.

KEEPS YOU HEALTHY AND HAPPY. YOU WATCH OUR SHOW AND YOU'RE

IN TOUCH WITH HAPPY PEOPLE. >> AMEN.

>>> UP NEXT, A HARDENED WELDER BECOMES AS WEAK AS A BABY.

>> I'M HOLDING THIS PIECE OF STEEL AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

CANNOT HOLD IT. ALMOST FELL ON HIS HEAD.

IT WAS LIKE I CAN'T RISK ANOTHER PERSON'S LIFE.

>> WATCH HOW AN AMAZING MIRACLE UNFOLDS AFTER THIS MAN IS

DIAGNOSED WITH ALS. >>> ALS BETTER KNOWN AS LOU

GEHRIGS DISEASE IS A CRIPPLING, INCURABLE.

IT WAS A HUGE PILE OF BAD BREAKS THAT TONY HAD TO BATTLE

HIS ENTIRE LIFE, BEGINNING WHEN HE WAS JUST A BOY.

>> I WAS CRAP. I WAS DIRT.

MUD. ALL THAT GOOD STUFF.

THAT'S THE WAY I LIVED MY LIFE. >> AS A YOUNG BOY GROWING UP IN

A SMALL INDIANA TOWN, TONY MYERS NEVER FELT ANYONE COULD

LOVE HIM, INCLUDING GOD. >> HE JUST WANTED TO THROW

LIGHTNING BOLTS. IF YOU EVEN STEPPED ONE LITTLE

BIT OUT OF LINE. >> RAISED A CATHOLIC, HE TRIED

TO HOLD ON TO SOME BELIEF THAT GOD CARED.

UNTIL TWO OF HIS FRIENDS WERE KILLED IN A CAR ACCIDENT.

>> THE ONLY WAY I KNEW HOW TO DEAL WITH IT WAS THROUGH THE

ANGER AND THROUGH CUTTING MYSELF OFF AND THROUGH NOT

CARING. IF THERE'S A GOD LIKE THAT, I

AIN'T SERVING HIM. >> TONY WENT ON TO SERVE EIGHT

YEARS IN THE ARMY BEFORE TAKING A JOB AS A WELDER.

IN ALL THOSE YEARS HE WAS STILL ANGRY AT GOD AND THE WORLD AND

LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE. >> I ALWAYS LOOK LIKE YOU'RE

OUT TO GET ME SO I'M GOING TO GET YOU FIRST.

IN MY MIND I WAS THE FORCE. >> AT 39 YEARS OLD HE MET DEB,

A CHRISTIAN WHO SAW TONY MUCH DIFFERENTLY.

>> THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT HER.

THAT I NEVER EXPERIENCED. SHE ALWAYS SAID SHE SAW GOLD IN

ME INSPITE OF MY ACTIONS. I WONDERED WHAT WAS BEST FOR

HER AND THAT WAS UNUSUAL FOR ME.

>> A WOMAN'S LOVE ALONE WASN'T ENOUGH TO SOFTEN HIS CALLOUSED

HEART. THAT SAME YEAR TONY STARTED

HAVING SYMPTOMS THAT CAME WITHOUT WARNING.

>> I WOULD WAKE UP AND BE DEADLY TIRED.

I WOULD END UP EATING LIKE EVERY OTHER DAY OR SOMETHING

LIKE THAT. I DIDN'T CARE.

TO ME I'M GOING TO BARREL THROUGH IT.

>> FOR TWO YEARS TONY KEPT GETTING WORSE.

>> I'D GET WEAK. JUST ALL OF A SUDDEN GET WEAK.

MY LEGS. MY ARMS.

JUST OUT OF THE BLUE. >> STILL HE REFUSED TO SEE A

DOCTOR. IT WASN'T UNTIL A NEAR FATAL

ACCIDENT WITH A COWORKER IN MARCH 2009 THAT TONY DECIDED HE

NEEDED HELP. >> I'M HOLDING THIS PIECE OF

STEEL AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I COULD NOT HOLD IT.

ALMOST FELL ON HIS HEAD. IT WAS LIKE I CAN'T RISK

ANOTHER PERSON'S LIFE. >> TONY WENT TO SEVERAL

SPECIALISTS BUT NONE COULD FIND A CAUSE.

EVENTUALLY HE WAS FORCED TO USE A CANE.

THEN HE LOST HIS JOB. >> I'D ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO

OVERCOME EVERYTHING ON MY OWN. NOW I'M GETTING FIRED?

THAT REALLY HURT. >> ONE NIGHT HE SAW A PREACHER

ON TELEVISION THAT MADE HIM THINK HE MIGHT NEED JESUS AFTER

ALL. >> I MEAN EMOTION HIT ME THAT I

HAD NEVER EXPERIENCED. THAT'S THE MOMENT I KNEW JESUS

WAS REAL. >> BUT TONY STILL DIDN'T

BELIEVE JESUS COULD LOVE HIM. MEANWHILE HE AND DEB MARRIED AS

HE CONTINUED TO DETERIORATE. EVENTUALLY HE WAS CONFINED TO A

MOTORIZED WHEELCHAIR. >> I MEAN I COULDN'T BREATHE.

SPEECH WAS A HUGE PROBLEM. IT WAS AROUND THAT TIME THAT MY

FINGERS WERE STARTING TO CRUMP UP.

>> FINALLY AFTER THREE YEARS OF TESTING DOCTORS CONCLUDED TONY

HAD A FATAL NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER.

MOST LIKELY ALS. >> OH MY GOSH.

IT'S GOING TO GET WORSE THAN IT ALREADY IS.

SO I MEAN, I WAS GOING THROUGH ALL THE GAMUT OF EMOTIONS.

ALL THE TIME BETWEEN FEAR AND ANGER AND AT THAT POINT I'M

LIKE FORGET IT, JUST LET ME DIE.

>> ON JULY 4, 2012, TONY WAS THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING VERY

DIFFERENT. IT WAS AN ARTICLE HE HAD READ

ABOUT JESUS' CRUCIFIXION. >> I SAW JESUS AT THE WHIPPING

POST BEING SCOURGED AND JUST SEE CHUNKS OF FLESH BEING

RIPPED OFF. IN HIS EYES THERE WAS A DEEP,

TOO A TRULY DEEP LOVE. THAT WAS UNENDING JESUS

SUFFERED FAR WORSE THAN I DID AND HOW MUCH HE HAD TO HAVE

LOVED ME THEN. AND IT WAS LIKE I KNEW BECAUSE

HE LOVED ME THAT MUCH HE WANTED ME TO BE WHOLE.

MY ANGER JUST EVAPORATED. BACK PAIN BE GONE.

IT JUST CAME OUT MY MOUTH. ALL THE PAIN LEFT.

WHAT IN THE WORLD. THEN I SEE FINGERS MOVE.

THEN MY FINGERS ARE MOVING. THAT'S WHEN I SAID JESUS DON'T

LET ME FALL. AND ALL OF A SUDDEN MY LEGS HIT

THE FLOOR. IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?

WOW. MY LORD, MY MASTER, MY GOD.

YOU DID THIS FOR ME. >> TODAY TONY IS STILL STRONG,

PAIN FREE AND EAGER TO SHARE HOW JESUS' LOVE HEALED HIS BODY

AND HIS SOUL. >> THE FACT THAT THE LORD LOVED

ME IN SPITE OF ME TOTALLY BEING SET AGAINST HIM, HE LOVES YOU.

AS YOU ARE. RIGHT NOW.

AND HE SEES YOU AS THE MOST PRECIOUS THING ON THE FACE OF

THIS EARTH. >> CAN'T SAY IT BETTER THAN

TONY. JESUS LOVES YOU AND HE SEES YOU

AS PRECIOUS. NO MATTER HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF.

GOD SEES YOU AS HIS BEAUTIFUL CREATION.

HE IS YOUR HEALER FOR THE WHOLE BODY, MIND, BODY, SOUL AND

SPIRIT. JUST LIKE HE DID FOR TONY.

>> BEAUTIFUL. >> BEAUTIFUL STORY, PAT.

>> SOMETHING ELSE? >> YES.

WHEN GERALDINE TURNED A CERTAIN WAY HER RIGHT HIP WOULD CAUSE

HER TO CRY OUT IN PAIN. ONE DAY SHE HEARD YOU DECLARE

HEALING FOR SOMEONE HAVING DIFFICULTY WITH YOUR RIGHT HIP

AREA. ALTHOUGH SHE PREVIOUSLY HAD NOT

BELIEVED GOD WOULD HEAL HER WHEN YOU SAID STAND UP AND WALK

SHE DID AND THE PAIN LEFT AND HASN'T RETURNED.

>> HERE'S SOMEBODY CALLED ROSALIE.

SHE HAD BACK PAIN. SHE WAS WATCHING OUR PROGRAM

AND YOU SAID SOMEONE WITH A BACK CONDITION.

SHE SAID THAT'S ME AND SHE IMMEDIATELY WAS HEALED.

GET UP APE PRAISE GOD AND THAT'S THE DAY THEY BOTH STOOD

UP IN FAITH AND GOD HEALED THEM.

FOLKS, WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF GOD.

IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE. BELIEVING IN THE LORD AND HIS

POWER. BELIEVE GOD AND WAS COUNTED TO

HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS. WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD AND

JOIN TOGETHER AND PRAY FOR YOU. NOW IF YOU WILL JUST JOIN US

WITH, GOD WANTS TO DO A MIRACLE RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH WENDY AND WE PRAY TOGETHER FOR PEOPLE IN

THIS AUDIENCE WHO WERE SUFFERING.

SOMEBODY HAS A BOWEL OBSTRUCTION AND IT IS BAD.

THEY'RE TRYING TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOU AND SOMETHING'S NOT

WORKING. RIGHT NOW THE LORD IS CAUSING

THAT WHOLE PART OF YOUR BODY LARGE INTESTINE IS BEGINNING TO

FUNCTION AND EVERYTHING IS COMING TOGETHER IN THE NAME OF

JESUS RIGHT NOW. WENDY.

>> SOMEONE YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A BRAIN TUMOR.

THE DOCTORS REPORT IS NOT GOOD BUT THE LORD IS SPEAKING TO YOU

RIGHT NOW. YOU ARE BEING HEALED.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU AND YOU ARE BEING HEALED.

THAT BRAIN TUMOR IS DISSOLVING EVEN AS WE SPEAK IN JESUS'

NAME. >> SOMEBODY YOUR LEFT EYE, I

BELIEVE YOU MAY HAVE GOTTEN SOME SAWDUST IN IT OR SOME KIND

OF SUBSTANCES IN THERE. IT'S CAUSED GREAT PROBLEMS MIND

YOUR EYE. THE LORD IS GOING TO WORK THAT

OUT RIGHT NOW. YOU'LL BE COMPLETELY HEALED.

IN JESUS NAME. PUT YOUR HAND OVER YOUR EYE.

IN JESUS NAME, TOUCH. >> SOMEONE, GOT A PROBLEM.

IT'S YOUR NOSE. YOU'RE HAVING A REAL HARD TIME

BREATHING. BECAUSE THERE'S AN OBSTRUCTION

IN YOUR NASAL PATSAGE. GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT NOW.

YOU'LL BE BREATHING NORMALLY SOON IN JESUS' NAME.

>> MAY THE POWER OF GOD EXTEND TO YOU.

MAY YOU SEE HIS TOUCH IN YOUR LIFE.

MAY YOU KNOW HIS PRESENCE. MAY THE PEACE OF GOD WHICH

PASSES UNDERSTANDING KEEP YOUR HEARTS AND MIND IN CHRIST

JESUS. IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN. >> AMEN.

>> AMEN. >>> CALL, GIVE US AN ANSWER

WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE FOR YOU. IF YOU NEED FURTHER PRAYER,

TELEPHONES ARE AVAILABLE. 1-800-700-7000.

HERE'S SOMETHING I WANT TO SHARE, I WANT TO REJOICE.

SOMEBODY WILL REJOICE WITH YOU. YOU'RE SAD.

YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO PRAY WITH YOU, THEY'LL PRAY WITH YOU.

TELL US WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU. WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

>>> STILL AHEAD, WE HAVE YOUR QUESTIONS AND HONEST ANSWERS

FROM PAT. WHAT DO YOU THINK GOD THINKS

WHEN PEOPLE HAVE SURGERY TO GET THINGS CHANGED THAT THEY DON'T

LIKE ABOUT THEMSELVES? STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S ANSWER AND

MORE COMING UP LATER. >>> ACCORDING TO NEWS REPORTS

THE MINNESOTA DEMOCRAT SAID AT A SPEECH TO THE COUNCIL ON

AMERICAN ISLAMIC RELATIONS LAST MONTH QUOTE, CARE WAS FOUNDED

AFTER 9/11 BECAUSE THEY RECOGNIZE SOME PEOPLE DID

SOMETHING THAT ALL OF US WERE STARTING TO LOSE ACCESS TO OUR

CIVIL LIBERTIES. DAN CRENSHAW CRITICIZED THAT

REMARK TWEETING FIRST MEMBER OF CONGRESS EVER TO DESCRIBE

TERRORISTS WHO KILLED THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS ON 9/11 AS SOME

PEOPLE WHO DID SOMETHING. UNBELIEVABLE.

OMAR, WHO IS MUSLIM, ALSO HAS FACED CRITICISM FOR STATEMENTS

SEEMED ANTISEMETIC. >>> THE LAST OF THE DOOLITTLE

RAIDERS PASSED AWAY IN TEXAS THIS WEEK.

RICHARD COLE WAS ONE OF THE VOLUNTEERS WHO FLEW A MISSION

TO BOMB JAPAN JUST MONTHS AFTER THE PEARL HARBOR ATTACKS.

COLE WAS COLONEL JIMMY DOOLITTLE'S COPILOT.

THEY CARRIED OUT THEIR MISSION THEN CRASH LANDED IN CHINA.

EVENTUALLY MANAGING TO GET BACK TO THE UNITED STATES.

COLE STAYED ACTIVE IN HIS LATER YEARS, TAKING PART IN EVENTS

LIKE THE RAID'S 75th ANNIVERSARY.

COLE WAS 103 YEARS OLD. >>> 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 AFTER

THIS. >>> THE AMOUNT OF LOANS THAT

STUDENTS HAVE ACCUMULATED IS SIMPLY STAGGERING.

THIS WHOLE GENERATION FACES THAT BURDEN.

IT IS ENORMOUS. JORDAN ARNOLD HAS BEEN FEATURED

AS A MILLENNIAL WHO WASN'T FAZED BY THAT HUGE LOAN.

HE PAID IT ALL OFF IN JUST TEN MONTHS.

HIS GOAL WAS TO BE FINANCIALLY FREE.

THE HARD PART OF THE CONVINCING HIS FIANCE IN HAD JOINING HIM

IN THIS WORTHY ENDEAVOR. >> 63% OF MILLENNIALS ARE BEING

CRUSHED BY STUDENT LOAN DEBT. 24-YEAR-OLD JORDAN ARNOLD IS

NOT ONE OF THEM. AT THE AGE OF 21 JORDAN PAID

OFF $24,000 IN STUDENT LOANS IN UNDER A YEAR.

>> I DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE DEBT OVER MY HEAD.

IT WAS TOUGH MOVING BACK IN WITH THE PARENTS.

PROBABLY WORKING 75, 80 HOURS A WEEK FOR ABOUT TEN MONTHS.

>> JORDAN IS READY TO EXPLAIN HOW HE PAID OFF HIS DEBT.

HE WOULD RATHER PEOPLE UNDERSTAND WHY HE DID IT.

>> I'M A SAVER. DON'T SPEND MORE MONEY THAN YOU

HAVE. GIVE TO GOD WHAT'S HIS.

I THINK WE'RE CALLED TO BE STEWARDS OF OUR RESOURCES.

>> JORDAN LEARNED THOSE PRINCIPLES FROM HIS PARENTS WHO

WERE HARD WORKING MIDWESTERN FARMERS.

>> THEY TAUGHT US A LOT OF BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES.

MY MOM WOULD EMPHASIZE TITHING. I WAS THINKING ABOUT MY FUTURE

FAMILY THAT I WANTED TO BE PREPARES.

>> ALONG CAME EMILY. ALSO LOOKING FORWARD THE

FUTURE. >> I COULD TELL EARLY ON THAT

HE HAD A GODLY APPROACH TO HIS MONEY.

>> THE COUPLE REALIZED THEY HAD VERY DIFFERENT ATTITUDES TOWARD

MONEY. >> TYPICALLY MY FIRST THOUGHT

WITH MY MONEY WAS WHAT COULD I DO WITH THIS FOR ME.

AT THE TIME I WAS KIND OF AFRAID THAT MAYBE HE COULD BE

SCARED OF HOW I WAS SPENDING MY MONEY.

>> JORDAN WAS UNDAUNTED AND SOON INTRODUCED EMILY TO THE

CONCEPT OF TITHING. >> SHE WAS HESITANT.

BUT SHE KNEW THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT SHE SHOULD DO.

>> I WAS THINKING I DON'T REALLY HAVE THAT MUCH TO GIVE.

>> I THINK OF THE WIDOW AND THE TWO MITES.

SHE JUST GAVE WHAT ALL SHE COULD AND.

WHAT THE TRUE HEART IS OF THE GIVER.

>> PUTTING THAT $5 IN THE BUCKET WAS DIFFICULT BECAUSE AT

THAT TIME I WAS LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK I DID GRIEVE JUST A

LITTLE BIT, JUST BECAUSE IT WAS HAVING TO MAKE A SACRIFICE.

>> THE COUPLE DECIDED TO MARRY. BUT THE EXPENSE OF THEIR

UPCOMING NUPTIALS TESTED THEIR COMMITMENT TO GIVING.

>> IT'S AN INTERNAL STRUGGLE WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE GOD'S

TELLING YOU TO GIVE SOMETHING AND YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU

HAVE IT TO GIVE. >> JORDAN AND EMILY CONTINUED

TO TITHE. WHEN THEIR WEDDING DAY ARRIVED

EVERYTHING HAD BEEN PAID FOR IN CASH.

>> EMILY AND I GREW CLOSER DURING THAT TIME JUST BECAUSE

WE WERE TRUSTING HIM AND ALLOWING HIM TO BE THE KING.

>> A FEW MONTHS LATER, JORDAN RECEIVED A BONUS AT HIS JOB.

>> THAT WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO PAY FOR WHAT WE HAD GIVEN

PROBABLY THREE TIMES WHAT WE GAVE.

>> JORDAN'S BONUS WAS FOLLOWED SEVERAL MONTHS LATER WITH A

PROMOTION AND A RAISE. JUST FOUR MONTHS AFTER THAT

EMILY GOT A NEW JOB AS WELL. ENABLING THE COUPLE TO INCREASE

THEIR GIVING. >> I THINK GIVING IS A LOT LIKE

EXERCISING AND THE MORE WE DO IT THE MORE WE CAN SEE BENEFITS

AND REWARDS. >> WE'RE ABLE TO FEEL SO MUCH

JOY. >> A YOUNG COUPLE.

HE'S LEARNED THE PRINCIPLES, YOU KNOW.

THE BIGGEST PRINCIPLE IS YOU CAN'T SPEND MORE THAN YOU BRING

IN. AND IF YOU TAKE A PART OF WHAT

YOU HAVE AND THAT GOES TO THE LORD FIRST THE TITHE BELONGS TO

THE LORD. SO YOU TAKE 10% OUT AND YOU SAY

WELL CAN I AFFORD IT? WELL YOU CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO.

AND JORDAN AND EMILY, THEY'RE EXAMPLES.

NOW I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING CALLED THE I WILL'S

OF GOD. I FOUND THIS IN THE 91st PSALM.

THERE'S A WHOLE LIST OF THINGS OF WHAT GOD SAID.

BECAUSE HE SET HIS LOVE UPON ME THEREFORE I WILL.

HE BEGINS TO SAY WHAT HE WILL DO FOR YOU.

IT IS OVERWHELMING AND THIS DVD HAS NOT ONLY THE PRINCIPLES OF

THE TEACHING BUT IT HAS EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD

MIRACLES IN THEIR LIVES. I WANT TO SEND THIS TO YOU FOR

THOSE OF YOU WHO JOIN OUR 700 CLUB.

IT'S 65-CENTS A DAY. IT'S LESS THAN ABOUT A HALF OR

QUARTER A THIRD OF WHATEVER BOTTLE OF SODA POP.

IT'S $20 A MONTH. YOU DO THAT ALL YEAR ROUND AND

IT GETS TO BE SOMETHING. HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

PARTICIPATE. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

SO YOU CAN JOIN IN. THE NUMBER'S ON YOUR SCREEN.

WE'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU AS A MEMBER.

>> PEOPLE LOVE THE DVD. MIKE FROM ILLINOIS SAYS THE I

WILLS OF GOD IS A BLESSING AND AN INSIGHT INTO ONE OF MY

FAVORITE SCRIPTURES. PAT ALWAYS DOES A GOOD JOB

EXPLAINING SCRIPTURE. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR LETTING US KNOW YOU LIKED IT.

>> GO FOR THOSE WHO ARE 700 CLUB MEMBERS.

$20 A MONTH. LET'S HAVE SOME QUESTIONS.

>>> WHAT DO YOU THINK GOD THINKS WHEN PEOPLE HAVE SURGERY

TO GET THINGS CHANGED THEY DON'T LIKE ABOUT THEMSELVES?

I GUESS NOSE JOBS, FACELIFTS, ET CETERA.

>> WHAT DOES GOD THINK ABOUT SOMEBODY WHO PUTS LIPSTICK ON

OR ROUGE ON THEIR CHEEKS OR INSTEAD OF LETTING YOUR HAIR

HANG LOOSE BUT GOING INTO THE BEAUTY PARLOR.

I DON'T THINK GOD MINDS THAT. THE QUESTION IS WHERE IS OUR

FOCUS. FACELIFT WILL COST ABOUT 10

GRANDS. THERE'S A QUESTION CAN YOU

AFFORD IT AND IF IT REALLY MAKES YOU FEEL YOUNGER OR

BETTER QUALIFIED TO GET A JOB OR SOMETHING I MEAN WHY NOT?

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD WRONG WITH IT THAT THE

QUESTION IS ARE YOU FOCUSED ON YOU, ARE YOU FOCUSED ON JESUS?

I THINK THAT'S WHAT THE KEY IS. >> EVEN IF I WAS ON A DESERT

ISLAND, GIVE ME MY LIPSTICK. I DON'T EVEN CARE IF ANYONE

SEES IT. OKAY, SARAH SAYS I AM DIVORCED

AND REMARRIED. I KNOW GOD IS AGAINST DIVORCE

BUT WILL HE STILL FORGIVE ME? HOW DO I GO FORWARD LIVING MY

LIFE FOR HIM? >> I THINK THE QUESTION IS

WHERE WERE YOU BEFORE AND WHAT IS THE REASON IT WAS A DIVORCE?

I THINK THERE ARE GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE AND ONCE YOU'RE

DIVORCED THERE'S NO REASON NOT TO GET REMARRIED.

PAUL HAS THIS SO-CALLED PRIVILEGE.

IF THE UNBELIEVERS PLEASE TO DEPART LET THEM DEPART.

THE BELIEVER IS NOT BOUND IN A CASE LIKE THAT.

IF THERE'S ADULTERY ALONG THE WAY THERE'S NO PROBLEM.

SCRIPTURAL. BUT YOU CAN'T UNSCRAMBLE EGGS

SO YOU'RE NOW PUTTING A LIFE TOGETHER YOU ARE REMARRIED AND

I JUST BELIEVE THE CHURCH AS SUCH HAS GOT TO COME OUT WITH

MORE RULES. THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

HAVING THE KIND OF RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE THEY WANT TO LIVE FOR

THE LORD AND THEY WANT GOD'S BLESSING.

I NOR ONE WOULD SAY I WOULD BE WILLING TO BLESS SUCH A UNION.

I DON'T THINK NOW THAT YOU'VE BEEN LIVING TOGETHER FOR A FEW

YEARS AND TRYING TO SET UP A CHRISTIAN HOUSEHOLD YOU OUGHT

TO BREAK IT UP. I JUST DON'T THINK THAT WOULD

BE SMART. >> THIS VIEWER SAYS IS IT A

GOOD TIME TO INVEST IN GOLD? >> WELL, GOLD IS SORT OF A DEAD

INVESTMENT. IT DOESN'T PAY ANY DIVIDENDS.

YOU HAVE TO HOPE IT GOES UP. THERE'S A COMPANY THAT I LIKE A

LOT IT'S CALLED BARRETT GOLD. JOHN THORNTON IS THE EXECUTIVE

MANAGER OF THAT COMPANY AND HE'S A BRILLIANT BUSINESSMAN.

AND JUST DOING WELL AND THEY ALSO PAY DIVIDENDS.

IF YOU WANT GOLD, I WOULD, I DON'T NORMALLY TALK ABOUT

COMPANIES BUT THAT COMPANY IS SOLID AS A ROCK.

PROBABLY THE LOWEST COST PRODUCER WITH HUGE RESERVES OF

GOLD. ASK YOUR BROKER.

>> YOU MIND IF I ASK DO YOU HAVE ANY GOLD IN YOUR

PORTFOLIO? >> I'VE GOT A LITTLE GOLD AND

LITTLE BARS OF THE STUFF BUT I'VE ALSO GOT SOME SUBSTANTIAL

STOCK. I LIKE IT.

>> I GUESS FULL DISCLOSURE I OWN SOME OF IT BUT I DON'T

THINK I'M GOING TO MOVE THE MARKET.

IT'S REALLY A GOOD INVESTMENT. >> THE PASSAGE IN JOHNS 1726,

THE LOVE WITH WHICH YOW LOOED ME MAY BE IN THEM AND I IN

THEM. IS THAT ONLY FOR THE APOSTLES

OR CAN WE, SHOULD WE INCLUDE OURSELVES?

I DEARLY HOPE SO. WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS?

>> AS I RECALL HE GOES ON TO SAY THOSE WHO COME TO FAITH

THROUGH THEIR WORD. I THINK IS WAY BEYOND THE

APOSTLES. I THINK IT'S EVERYBODY WHO

SHARES THEIR FAITH WHO COMES TO FAITH THROUGH THE WORDS OF THE

APOSTLES WHICH OF COURSE IS IN THE BIBLE.

SO I THINK IT'S FOR EVERYBODY. I WOULD CERTAINLY HOPE SO.

I RECEIVE IT FOR ME AND I HOPE YOU RECEIVE IT FOR YOU.

>> J.J. SAYS I HEARD PAT SAY HE LOVES

CHARISMATIC CATHOLICS. I'M A CATHOLIC BUT NOT SURE I

UNDERSTAND WHAT HE MEANS. THANKS.

>> WELL CHARISMATIC ARE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED IN THE

HOLY SPIRIT WHO PRACTICE THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT WHO BELIEVE

IN HEALING, BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF GOD'S SPIRIT.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS BEEN VERY WARM TOWARD THIS

EXPRESSION OF FAITH. I THINK THE POPE HAS SAID GOOD

THINGS ABOUT THEM AND OTHERS HAVE I THINK IT'S A VIBRANT

FORM OF FAITH AND VERY EXCITING.

THAT'S, YOU KNOW, CATHOLICS WHO ARE, WHO HAVE HAD THE

CHARISMATIC EXPERIENCE. DEALT WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

EXERCISE THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I HOPE YOU SHARE THAT BLESSING. WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S POWER

MINUTE. IF YOU CAN BELIEVE ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM WHO BELIEVES.

WELL FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, THANK

YOU FOR BEING WITH US. AND BY TOMORROW WE'VE GOT THE

SONS OF ANTONIN SCALIA. THEY'VE WRITTEN A BOOK ABOUT

THE FAITH OF THEIR ESTEEMED FATHER.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW. BYE BYE.
