Christian World News – May 27, 2016


>>THIS WEEK ON “CHRISTIAN
WORLD NEWS,” PROTECTING
CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE
EAST.
WE ASKED RELIGIOUS LEADERS
IN THE REGION WHAT THE
WEST CANO TO END THE
GENOCIDE.
>>Wendy: PLUS, A BERLIN
CHURCH WHO’S CONGREGATION
HAS BEEN DOUBLED BY FORMER
MUSLIMS.
>>George: AND A
LITTLE-KNOWN PART OF
HISTORY COMES ALIVE INSIDE
A JERUSALEM MUSEUM.
WE’LL GO INSIDE THE STATE
OF ART, “FRIENDS OF ZION
MUSEUM.”
HELLO, EVERYONE, WELCOME
TO THIS WEEK’S EDITION OF
“CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.”
I’M GEORGE THOMAS.
>>Wendy: AND I’M WEN WENDY
GRIFFITH.
WORLD LEADERS HAVE
DECLARED ISIS ATROCITIES
AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN IRAQ
AND SYRIA GENOCIDE.
BUT WHAT EXACTLY IS
GENOCIDE, AND WHAT DOES
THE DESIGNATION REQUIRE OF
THE UNITED STATES?
>>George: OUR
COLLEAGUE, GARY LANE, WENT
TO THE MIDDLE EAST FOR
INSIGHT FROM RELIGIOUS
LEADERS ON WHY USING THE
WORD “GENOCIDE” IS
IMPORTANT AND WHAT SHOULD
BE DONE TO STOP THE
BRUTALITY.
>>THIS IS A GENOCIDE.
WE HAVE NO KNOW THE
REALITY, AND WE HAVE TO
SEE THE REALITY.
>>WE MUST DO SOMETHING.
THEY MUST NOT WAIT UNTIL
THE BODIES ARE BURIED.
>>IN MY JUDGMENT, DAESH
IS RESPONSIBLE FOR
GENOCIDE AGAINST GROUPS
AND AREAS UNDER ITS
CONTROL, INCLUDING THE
YAZIDIS, CHRISTIANS, AND
SHI’A MUSLIMS.
>>Reporter: RESULTING
IN THE WORST HUMANITARIAN
CRISIS SINCE WORLD WAR
TWO.
12 MILLION SYRIANS, ABOUT
HALF OF THE POPULATION OF
THE COUNTRY, ARE EITHER
INTERNALLY DISPLACED OR
REFUGEES IN NEIGHBORING
COUNTRIES.
AND IT IS NOT JUST IN
SYRIA.
THE YAZIDIS AND CHRISTIANS
OF NEIGHBORING IRAQ HAVE
SUFFERED FROM THE WORST
ACTS OF ISIS GENOCIDE.
>>THOSE PEOPLE, THEY KILL
EVERYTHING.
NOT JUST THEY KILL THE
HUMANS.
THEY KILL OUR HISTORY, OUR
DIGNITY, OUR CHURCHES.
>>NOW MOSUL — THEY ARE
ALL OF THE PLACES EMPTY
FROM THE CHRISTIANS.
>>HERE NOW WE HAVE ABOUT
400,000 PEOPLE THAT ARE
REFUGEES.
THEY ARE LIVING IN THE
TENTS.
IN THE WINTER, IN THE
SUMMER, IN THE BAD
WEATHER, IN THE GOOD
WEATHER, WITHOUT INCOME,
WATER OR O FOOD OR SHOES OR
CLOTHING.
NO.
>>HERE WE ARE 3,500 WOMEN
WHO ARE KIDNAPPED UNDER
ISIS’ CONTROL.
>>STILL WE HAVE 1,000
BOYS, BETWEEN 6 TO 10
YEARS, ARE CAPTIVES IN THE
SPECIAL PLACE IN MOSUL,
TEACHING THEM TO
CONVERT — WASHING THE
BRAINS OF THEM, AND
TEACHING THEM TO USE THE
WEAPONS.
A NEW GENERATION FOR
TERRORISTS, FOR ISIS.

>>Reporter: SOME
ADVOCATES SUGGEST THE
CREATION OF A CHRISTIAN
SAFE ZONE IN NORTHEASTERN
SYRIA, OR A HOMELAND IN
IRAQ’S NINEVEH PLAINS.
BUT SOME RELIGIOUS LEADERS
OPPOSE THE IDEA.
>>WE DON’T LIKE TO BE
SEPARATE.
THE CHRISTIAN COUNTRY AND
THE MUSLIM COUNTRY.
ALWAYS WE LIVE TOGETHER.
WE ARE BROTHERS AND
SISTERS.
WE HAD A GOOD EXPERIENCE
BETWEEN CHRISTIANS AND
MUSLIMS.
WHY DO WE HAVE TO LIVE
THIS EXPERIENCE?
IT IS A GOOD TESTIMONY
THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY CAN
LIVE TOGETHER.
>>Reporter: THE
CHRISTIANS ARE LEAVING.
WHO WILL BE SALT AND
LIGHT?
>>EXACTLY.
>>Reporter: WITH THE
RESOLUTION FROM THE
EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND
THE DESIGNATION FROM U.S.
SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN
KERRY, THE WORLD NOW KNOWS
THAT CHRISTIANS HERE IN
SYRIA FACE GENOCIDE.
>>THIS IS NOT A QUESTION
OF BELIEF OR NOT BELIEF.
I’M CHRISTIAN OR NOT
CHRISTIAN.
IT IS REALLY ABOUT THE
HUMAN DIGNITY.
*
>>George: THANKS, GARY.
WE HAVE LINKS TO RESOURCES
ON HOW YOU CAN HELP
CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE
EAST.
FIND THEM AT OUR WEBSITE,
cbnnews.com.
>>Wendy: THOUSANDS OF
MUSLIM REFUGEES ARE
REPORTEDLY TURNING TO
CHRIST IN EUROPE.
THE DAILY BEAST WEBSITE
SAYS THEY’RE CONVERTING IN
COUNTRIES LIKE GERMANY,
THE NETHERLANDS, AND
DENMARK.
THEY TOLD THE GERMAN
MAGAZINE, “IN ISLAM, WE
ALWAYS LIVED IN FEAR.
FEAR OF GOD, FEAR OF SIN,
FEAR OF PUNISHMENT.
BUT CHRIST IS A GOD OF
LOVE.”
ONE GERMAN PASTOR CALLED
THE CONVERSIONS, QUOTE,”A
GIFT FROM GOD.”
>>George: IN SOME
EUROPEAN CITIES, THE NEW
CONVERTS ARE FILLING
CHURCHES THAT HAVE LONG
BEEN EMPTY.
SADLY CHURCH ATTENDANCE IN
EUROPE HAS BEEN DROPPING
FOR DECADES.
BUT IN ONE GERMAN CHURCH,
MUSLIM CONVERTS TO
CHRISTIANITY ARE ACTUALLY
REVIVING THE CONGREGATION.
HERE IS OUR REPORT.
>>Reporter: PARTS OF
GERMANY ARE AMONG THE MOST
GODLESS AREAS IN THE
WORLD.
BELIEF IN GOD IN THE OLD
EAST GERMANY IS ONLY 13%,
BUT CHURCH ATTENDANCE IS
GROWING HERE, THANKS TO
FORMER MUSLIMS FROM IRAN.
AT THE “HOUSE OF GOD’S
HELP,” IN EAST BERLIN,
CONVERTS TO CHRISTIANITY
HAVE DOUBLED THE SIZE OF
THE CONGREGATION.
>>IT CAME LIKE AN
UNEXPECTED SUMMER RAIN.
SUDDENLY NEW PEOPLE
STARTED COMING EVERY WEEK,
AND ASKED TO BE BAPTIZED.
IN THE BEGINNING, ONLY
FIVE OR SIX CAME.
THEY WERE EASY TO SPOT,
AND WE GOT TO KNOW THEM.
OVER TIME, THEY CAME WITH
FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS.
>>Reporter: GERMANY HAS
EXPERIENCED A SEARCH IN
ISLAM.
MUSLIMS CONDUCTED A
NATIONWIDE CAMPAIGN TO
GIVE AWAY QURANS, IN A
COUNTRY THAT HAS LARGELY
TURNED ITS BACK ON
BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY.
BUT IRANIAN IMMIGRANTS, OR
PERSIANS, HAVE ALREADY
EXPERIENCED THE DARKNESS
AND OPPRESSION OF ISLAM IN
THEIR NATIVE LAND.
MICHAEL ASKED THAT WE
DISGUISE HIS FACE TO
PROTECT HIS FAMILY IN
IRAN.
>>I MET A FEW TIMES WITH
FRIENDS IN TEHRAN, IN AN
UNDERGROUND CHURCH, IN A
FLAT.
AND THERE WE SPOKE ABOUT
JESUS.
AND WE TRIED TO DO A BIBLE
STUDY SOMETIMES WITHOUT AN
ACTUAL BIBLE.
>>Reporter: ALL OF THE
PERSIANS WE TALKED TO
ACCEPTED CHRIST IN IRAN
AND THEN HAD TO EITHER
FLEE OR RISK PRISON OR
DEATH.
>>I WAS ON MY WAY TO A
HOUSE CHURCH MEETING WHEN
I SAW POLICE OUTSIDE THE
FLAT.
SO I DIDN’T GO IN.
AND LATER I CALLED MY
MOTHER.
SHE SAID THE POLICE WERE
HERE LOOKING FOR YOU.
SO MY FAMILY HELPED ME
FLEE THE COUNTRY.
>>WHEN I WAS IN IRAN, I
WANTED TO BECOME A
CHRISTIAN, BUT IT IS
REALLY DIFFICULT TO LEARN
ABOUT CHRISTIANITY IN
IRAN.
IT IS FORBIDDEN FOR A
MUSLIM TO BECOME A
CHRISTIAN.
IT WAS REALLY DIFFICULT.
I HAD TO LEAVE AND I LOST
MY HOME AND MY FAMILY.
>>Reporter: ROSEMARY
SAID THE PERSIANS WERE
SURPRISED TO FIND SO MANY
GERMANS DISINTERESTED IN
CHRISTIANITY.
>>MOST OF THEM BECAME
CHRISTIANS IN IRAN, AND
KNOW MORE ABOUT
CHRISTIANITY THAN YOU
WOULD EXPECT.
THEY ARE AHEAD OF US IN A
SENSE BECAUSE THEY HAVE
ALREADY BEEN PERSECUTED
FOR CHRIST.
AND THEY FIGURED OUT
PRETTY QUICKLY THAT A LOT
OF GERMANS ARE CHRISTIANS
IN NAME ONLY, AND THEY’RE
DISAPPOINTED THAT GERMANS
TAKE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR
GRANTED.
>>Reporter: SOME
GERMANS ARE SUSPICIOUS OF
THE CONVERSIONS BECAUSE
BEING BAPTIZED CAN HELP A
REFUGEE STAY IN GERMANY,
RATHER THAN BE DEPORTED.
SO SISTER ROSEMARY TAKES
THE CHRISTIAN CONVERTS
THROUGH A RIGOROUS
SCHEDULE OF BIBLE CLASSES.
>>I DISSUSPECT THAT SOME
OF THEM WANTED TO BE
BAPTIZED SO THEY CAN GET
THEIR RESIDENCY IN
GERMANY.
THAT TURNED OUT TO BE THE
CASE WITH ONLY A FEW.
SOME OF THEM, WHO HAVE
ALREADY BEEN BAPTIZED HAVE
COME BACK TO OUR FAITH AND
CLASS FOR THE FOURTH TIME.
>>Reporter: IT IS NOT
KNOWN HOW MANY CONVERSIONS
HAVE JOINED CHURCHES IN
GERMANY, BUT IT IS
NUMBERING IN THE
THOUSANDS.
AAT THE “HOUSE OF GOD’S
HELP” IT HAS REINVIGORATED
THE CONGREGATION.
DALE HURD, CBN NEWS,
BERLIN.
>>Wendy: COMING UP, A
SUMMER CAMP IN BOLIVIA IS
CHANGING THE LIVES OF
YOUNG PEOPLE.
WE’LL SHOW YOU HOW, NEXT.
>>Wendy: VENEZUALA IS
FACING AN ECONOMIC CRISIS.
THE SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRY
IS THE FIFTH LARGEST
EXPORTER OF OIL IN THE
WORLD, YET THERE ARE
SHORTAGES OF FOOD AND
WATER AND INFLATION IS
SKYROCKETING.
THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM HAS
CRUMBLED, WITH HOSPITALS
LACKING BASIC MEDICINE AND
EQUIPMENT.
CRITICS EXPLAIN SOCIALIST
LEADER PRESIDENT NICOLAS
MADURO — THEY’RE CALLING
FOR HIM TO STEP ASIDE.
BUT MADURO DECLARED A
STATE OF EMERGENCY, WHICH
CREATED A PROBLEM IN THAT
COUNTRY AS WELL.
IMOOR>>George: IN THE MIDST
OF THE CONFUSION,
CHRISTIANS ARE RAISING
THEIR VOICES.
THEY’RE GIVING PRAISE TO
GOD AND CRYING OUT FOR
THEIR COUNTRY.
>>Reporter: CANECAS
CHURCH HAS ORGANIZED THIS
PRAYER WALK.
THEY CAME TO RAISE A CRY
TO GOD FOR VENEZUALA.
>>IT HAS BEEN THREE
MONTHS TO ORGANIZE THIS
WORK.
IT HAS BEEN A BLESSING TO
GET PERMISSION FOR THE
CHURCH OF THE LORD, TO
MAKE IT COME OUT.
>>WITH THE SLOGAN “I PRAY
FOR MY COUNTRY,” THOUSANDS
OF CHRISTIANS MARCHED AND
THEY PRAYED FOR THE UNITY
OF THE CHURCH.
ON BENDED KNEES, THEY
RAISED A CRY OF REPENTANCE
FOR THE NATION.
>>Through Translator:
WE NEED TO TURN TO GOD,
CRY OUT TO THE LORD, AND
ASK HIM TO INTERVENE.
>>Reporter: PASTORS OF
THE CITY READ ARTICLES OF
A SPIRITUAL DECREE FOR
VENEZUALA, AND THE PEOPLE
UNITED AGREE TO SERVE FOR
THE UNITY OF THE CHURCH BY
A COVENANT.
[SPEAKING IN SPANISH
LANGUAGE]
>>Through Translator:
WE ARE MOTIVATED MORE THAN
EVER TO PRAY FOR VENEZUALA
BECAUSE THE SITUATION IS
VERY CRITICAL.
ONLY PRAYER AND THE UNITY
OF THE BODY OF CHRIST WILL
MAKE THE COUNTRY BETTER.
>>Reporter: CBN NEWS.
>>Wendy: THANKS,
JAVIER.
>>>FURTHER SOUTH, IN
BOLIVIA, THE POLITICAL
SITUATION IS NOT SO DIRE.
IN FACT, MANY YOUNG PEOPLE
THERE ARE TURNING THEIR
MINDS TO SOMETHING MUCH
MORE RELAXING: SUMMER
CAMP.
>>George: AND VERY FEW
LATIN-AMERICAN YOUTH GET
TO EXPERIENCE THE FUN OF
SUMMER CAMP, AND CHRISTIAN
CAMPS ARE FEW AND FAR
BETWEEN.
BUT THOSE THAT DO EXIST
HAVE SENT THOUSANDS OF
LIVES ON A DIFFERENT
COURSE.
STAN JETER REPORTS.
>>Reporter: WHEN
STUDENTS ARRIVE AT THE
MONTE BLANCO CAMP IN
BOLIVIA, THEY EMBARK ON AN
ADVENTURE THAT TOUCHES THE
LIVES OF MORE THAN 5,000
JUNIOR HIGH AND HIGH
SCHOOL CAMPERS EVERY YEAR.
CAMPS LIKE THESE ARE RARE
IN AMERICA.
ESPECIALLY CAMPS WITH AN
EMPHASIS ON FUN AND GAMES.
THE CAMPUS DATES BACK TO
1952, WHEN THEY
ESTABLISHED THE TUMBLE
BOARDING SCHOOL FOR
MISSIONARY CHILDREN.
TOM ENVISIONED IT IN THE
1950S, WHILE HE PARENTS
WORKED WITH A NATIVE
TRIBE.
HE HAS TAKEN HIS OLD
MISSION SCHOOL CAMPUS AND
TURNED IT INTO ONE OF
LATIN-AMERICA’S MODEL
CHRISTIAN CAMPS.
MONTE BLANCO HAS BECOME A
MAGNET FOR CAMPERS.
>>WE USE FOOD, FUN, AND
FELLOWSHIP.
THEY DON’T GO FOR THEIR
SPIRITUAL NEEDS OR
BECAUSE, OH, I HAVE A
DRIVING DESIRE TO ACCEPT
JESUS CHRIST.
>>Reporter: THE FUN AND
FELLOWSHIP INCLUDE OUTDOOR
GAMES AND TEAM-BUILDING
COMPETITION, ALL FOCUSED
ON A SINGLE OBJECT.
>>FROM THE TIME THEY GET
OFF THE BUS UNTIL THEY GET
BACK ON THE BUS TO LEAVE
OUR FACILITY, EVERY ACTIVE
THEY’RE IN HAS A PURPOSE,
HAS A NERVOUS THAT IS
WORKING TOGETHER TO DRAW
THEM TOWARDS A DECISION
MOMENT, WHETHER TO ACCEPT
CHRIST OR TO RECONCILE
THEIR LIVES WITH HIM.
>>Reporter: AND CHANGE
DOES HAPPEN, AS UP TO 300
CAMPERS AT A TIME
EXPERIENCE THE MIXTURE OF
FUN AND SPIRITUALITY.
MARIA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL IS
ONE OF MANY SCHOOLS IN
SANTA CRUZ THAT SEND
STUDENTS TO MONTE BLANCO.
HE SAYS A HIGHLIGHT FOR
MANY OF HIS STUDENTS IS
THE BO BONFIRE.
>>THEY REMEMBER THAT
MOMENT WHEN THEY’RE ON THE
MOUNTAIN, AT THE BONFIRE,
WHEN THEY SING.
THOSE ARE TIMES THEY’LL
NEVER FORGET, AND THEY
TALK ABOUT IT ALL OF THE
TIME.
BECAUSE THEY SAY ON THAT
MOUNTAIN THEY TALKED TO ME
FROM THE WORD OF GOD.
>>Reporter: THE SAME
MESSAGE IS REINFORCED
DURING CHAPEL AND OTHER
CAMP ACTIVITIES, AND WHEN
STUDENTS MAKE A SPIRITUAL
COMMITMENT HERE, IT
DOESN’T TAKE LONG FOR
THEIR FAMILIES BACK HOME
TO NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE.
>>THE PARENTS SAY, WHAT
HAS HAPPENED TO OUR SON?
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
BECAUSE WE SEE THEM
CHANGED.
BECAUSE THEY COME AND HUG
THEIR PARENTS.
THEY COME TO TELL THEM,
DAD, MOM, WE LOVE YOU, I
LOVE YOU.
OR THEY COME TO ASK
FORGIVENESS OF THEIR
PARENTS.
>>Reporter: CHANGED
ATTITUDES ALSO HELP
IMPROVE SCHOOL
PERFORMANCE.
>>THEY ARE MUCH MORE
RESPONSIBLE, MUCH MORE
DEDICATED.
THEY DO THEIR HOMEWORK.
THEY DO BETTER ON THEIR
TESTS.
THEY GET ALONG BETTER WITH
THEIR TEACHERS.
SO THEY HAVE A BETTER
CLIMATE FOR FULLY
DEVELOPING THEMSELVES.
>>OTHER PRINCIPALS HAVE
TOLD RAMSEY OF SIMILAR
CHANGES IN THEIR SCHOOLS.
ONE REPORTED, “OUR GRADES
WENT UP.
WE SAW A DROP IN DRUG USE
AND REBELLION IN OUR
SCHOOLS.
WE ACTUALLY WITNESSED THE
CHANGE, THE DRAMATIC
CHANGE, OF SOME OF THE
WORST YOUTH LEADERS IN OUR
SCHOOL WHO ACCEPTED THE
LORD AT MONTE BLANCO AND
CAME BACK.”
>>Reporter: THE SUCCESS
OF THIS PROJECT HAS
CREATED NEW OPPORTUNITIES,
MOTIVATING THE STAFF TO
TAKE CHRISTIAN CAMPING ON
THE ROAD OR UP THE RIVER.
>>UP THE AMAZON, TO A
SMALL TOWN WHERE OVER 300
AND SOME YOUTH CAME
TOGETHER FOR A CAMP AND
CONFERENCE.
AND OUR STAFF RAN A CAMP,
VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE
RUN HERE, FOR THEM.
>>Reporter: RAMSEY AND
THE STAFF HOPE THAT MANY
MORE CHRISTIAN LEADERS
WILL DEVELOP CAMPING
PROGRAMS AS AN EFFECTIVE
INSTRUMENT FOR
TRANSFORMING
LATIN-AMERICA’S YOUTH.
STAN JETER, CBN NEWS.
>>Wendy: THANKS, STAN.
>>>UP NEXT, A MUSEUM THAT
HIGHLIGHTS THE SELDOM-TOLD
STORY OF THE HEROS AND
HISTORY OF CHRISTIAN
ZIONISM.
>>George: WELCOME BACK
TO “CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS.”
A NUMBER OF NEW POLLS
REVEAL A GLOBAL RISE IN
ANTI-SEMITISM.
TO HELP COUNTER THAT
TREND, CHRISTIAN MANAGERS
FROM AROUNMANAGERMINISTERSFROM AROUNDLY AR
OUND THE WORLD WILL
MEET, AND IT IS ALL PART
OOF AN EVENT CALLED
“CHRISTIAN ENCOUNTER.”
THE GROUP’S PRESIDENT,
WAYNE HILLSTON, SAYS IT IS
IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO
REALIZE THAT ISRAEL WILL
BECOME MORE IMPORTANT IN
THE DAYS AHEAD.
>>Wendy: FEW PEOPLE
REALIZE THAT CHRISTIANS
PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE IN
BUILDING AND PROTECTING
THE MODERN STATE OF
ISRAEL.
HOWEVER, A
STATE-OF-THE-ART MUSEUM IN
ISRAEL SHOWS THE WORLD
THIS IMPORTANT HIDDEN
HISTORY.
CHRIS MITCHELL TAKES US
THERE.
>>Chris: THE MUSEUM
GREETS VISITORS WITH
STUNNING AREAS OF ISRAEL,
WHILE A MAP TRACES THE
LAND GIVEN BY GOD TO THE
12 TRIBES, ALL SET TO
ORIGINALLY SCORED MUSIC.
*
>>Reporter: THE MUSEUM
USES STATE-OF-THE-ART ART
TECHNOLOGY.
THIS AREA IS ONE OF THE
LARGEST TOUCH-PANEL
EXHIBITS ANYWHERE IN THE
WORLD.
TOUCH ONE OF THESE PANELS,
AND YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE
INFORMATION ABOUT
CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS
THROUGHOUT HISTORY.
THEY WANT TO TELL ONE OF
THE MOST COMPELLING AND
UNKNOWN STORIES ABOUT
MODERN ISRAEL, THE ROLE OF
CHRISTIAN ZIONISM.
NETANYAHU ADDRESSED THIS
HISTORY IN A 2012 SPEECH.
>>I DON’T BELIEVE THAT A
JEWISH STATE, AND MODERN
ZIONISM WOULD HAVE BEEN
POSSIBLE WITHOUT CHRISTIAN
ZIONISM.
I THINK THAT THE MANY
CHRISTIAN SUPPORTERS OF
THE REBIRTH OF THE JEWISH
STATE AND THE REGATHERING
OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN
THE 19th CENTURY MADE IT
POSSIBLE.
>>Reporter: THEY WANTED
TO SPREAD THE WORD OF
CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS’ PLACE
IN HISTORY.
>>WANTING A HOME FOR
CHRISTIANS TO CELEBRATE
THEIR HEROS AND THEIR
HISTORY, I FOUND NO PLACE
WHERE CHRISTIANS COULD GO
TO WHERE THEY HAVE HEROS
AND HISTORY.
>>Reporter: THERE IS
THIS TWO-VOLUME SET
WRITTEN BY EVANS.
>>THERE ARE SO MANY OF
THEM.
IF YOU TAKE GEORGE BUSH,
1844, THIS GUY WAS A
HEBREW PROFESSOR AND HE
WROTE A BOOK THAT SOLD A
MILLION COPIES ON THE
RESTORATION OF ISRAEL.
>>Chris: AND OTHERS
FORMED THE FIRST JEWISH
FIGHTING UNIT IN NEARLY
2,000 YEARS, THE BEGINNING
OF THE ISRAELI MODERN ARMY
WE SEE TODAY.
WOMEN LIKE CORY AND HER
FAMILY.
THE NAZIS KILLED HER
FATHER AND SISTER, AND SHE
SUFFERED IN A
CONCENTRATION CAMP BECAUSE
THEY HID JEWS DURING THE
HOLOCAUST.
AND SWEDISH DIPLOMAT RAUL
WALLENBERG FACED DEATH TO
SAVE JEWS.
>>THEY WILL JOIN THE
THOUSANDS OF JEWISH
PRISONERS IN THE MARCHES
TO AUSCHWITZ.
HE WAS TRYING TO SAVE
ANYONE HE COULD.
>>WHAT WAS IT, TO FACE
DEATH — I REALIZED,
NUMBER ONE, IT WAS THEIR
BIBLE.
THEY HAD AN INTIMATE
RELATIONSHIP WITH THE
LIVING LORD, AND THEY
LOVED THE WORD OF GOD.
AND THEY WERE WILLING TO
COMMIT THEIR LIFE FOR IT.
AND WITH THE WORD OF GOD
CAME PROMISES OF THE
JEWISH PEOPLE.
>>Chris: THOSE
SCRIPTURE PROMISES ARE
WONDERFUL THROUGH EZEKIEL
TO ABRAHAM TO ISAIAH.
>>GOT SPOKE THE WORDS
THAT WOULD GIVE BIRTH TO
THE NATION OF ISRAEL.
>>FOR VISITORS, THE
EXPERIENCE IS WOW!
>>IT IS AN EXPERIENCE
LIKE NO OTHER.
YOU GO IN THERE, AND IT IS
INTERACTIVE, AND YOU’LL
LEARN A LOT OF THINGS YOU
PROBABLY NEVER EVEN
LEARNED.
>>I THOUGHT THIS WAS ONE
OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE
THINGS I’VE SEEN IN ISRAEL
IN THE TIME I’VE BEEN
THERE.
>>Chris: MANY NEVER
KNEW THE HISTORY AND NOW
WANT TO TELL OTHERS.
>>I AM GOING TO TELL
EVERYONE THAT I CAN THINK
OF, PEOPLE IN MY
SYNAGOGUE, TO COME HERE TO
SEE HOW THIS BEAUTIFUL
LAND OF ISRAEL WAS NOT
BUILT JUST BY THE JEWS,
BUT BY THE CHRISTIANS AND
THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO
RISKED THEIR LIVES TO MAKE
US A HOMELAND.
>>Chris: FOR EVANS, THE
MUSEUM LET’S THE JEWISH
PEOPLE KNOW THAT ALTHOUGH
ENEMIES SURROUND ISRAEL,
THEY’RE NOT ALONE.
>>THEY SEE AUSCHWITZ AND
WHAT THEY WENT THROUGH,
AND THEY SEE THE
ALIENATION IN THE WORLD
TODAY, AND THEY COME
THROUGH IT, AND THEY SAY,
WE’RE NOT ALONE.
THERE ARE CHRISTIANS WHO
REALLY LOVE US.
AND IT’S JUST AMAZING TO
SEE THAT.
IT GIVERS M GIVES ME HOPE THAT I’M
NOT ALONE.
THAT’S ENOUGH.
>>Chris: CHRIS
MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,
JERUSALEM.
>>George: AND YOU CAN
TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE
“FRIENDS OF ZION” MUSEUM.
FIND A LINK ON OUR
WEBSITE, cbnnews.com.
WE’LL BE BACK RIGHT AFTER
THIS.
@D
>>George: AND FINALLY
ON OUR SHOW THIS WEEK, SHE
BECAME AN INTERNET
SENSATION OVERNIGHT,
WINNING MILLIONS OVER WITH
HER CONTAGIOUS LAUGHTER.
>>Wendy: CANDACE PAYNE
WAS NOT LOOKING FOR
STARDOM WHEN SHE POSTED
THE VIDEO OF HER LATEST
PURCHASE, A CHEWBAAKA
MASK.
TAKE A LOOK.
>>THAT’S NOT ME MAKING
THAT NOISE.
IT’S THE MASK.
HERE, LISTEN.
[GOAT NOISES]
>>I’M SUCH A HAPPY
CHEWBAAKA.
>>Wendy: I’M GLAD IT
WAS NOT HER MAKING THAT
NOISE.
SHE IS NOT JUST A FUNNY
LADY, BUT SHE IS A PROUD
FOLLOWER OF JESUS.
SHE SAYS SHE WANTS TO USE
HER NEW-FOUND PLATFORM TO
GLORIFY GOD.
SHE ALSO SHARED THREE TIPS
FOR GROWING IN YOUR FAITH.
YOU CAN LEARN THOSE TIPS
BY VISITING cbnnews.com.
>>George: ON THAT
HILARIOUS NOTE, THANK YOU
SO MUCH FOR JOINING US
THIS WEEK.
>>Wendy: UNTIL NEXT
WEEK, FROM ALL OF US HERE,
GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS
YOU.
