1st John 2:9-11, “He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.”
The inspired Holy Bible warns that if you harbor hatred for your Christian brother or sister, you might not be saved. We have to be careful when interpreting the Scriptures. Some foolish people would wrongly interpret this Scriptures to accuse someone of not being saved just because they're upset with someone who professes faith in Christ. That is not what this passage is teaching.
What God is saying here is that if you hate a Christian without cause, then you had better do some heart searching, because you should love your fellow sisters and brothers in Christ. I love the folks at Pensacola Christian College (PCC), but sadly they don't love me. I am concerned about PCC leadership, over their lack of compassion and love for hurting sinners. As of August 2, 2022 I have been banned in writing from attending Campus Church at PCC. Pastor Jeff Redlin is their senior pastor, who gets paid a ridiculous 6-digit salary (4 times what the average U.S. citizens gets paid in a year). This is not honoring to Christ. The Word of God is blasphemed when pastors pay themselves $140,000 a year salary!!! Pastors are supposed to be servants, but Jeff Redlin refuses to even allow me to attend their church. That speaks volumes as to his lack of walk with God.
I hate what God hates, PCC's pride and arrogancy. Proverbs 8:13, “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.” PCC's leaders have HUGE EGOS!!! They sadly have narcissistic attitudes at Campus Church and PCC, only thinking about themselves at the expense of others like me and Samantha Field.
Ask former PCC student and alumnus, Samantha Field, if she feels loved or hated by PCC. I humbled myself and kindly offered to reconcile and make peace with PCC and Campus Church, but they refused in 2022. I sincerely offered to stop criticizing them on social media, and to do my best to remove criticisms I've already posted, if they would just forgive me and welcome me back to church as a hurting person, but they hate me so much that they refused. Where is God's love at PCC? There is none.
Ask expelled patriotic PCC student and alumnus, Allen Armentrout, if he feels loved or hated by PCC. There are no second chances or mercy at PCC! Those jerks in leadership at PCC couldn't care less about hurting sinners. What arrogant haughty religious hypocrites!!! Tragically, the only thing that Jeff Redlin and Timothy Zacharias care about is their ungodly 6-digit undeserved salaries! Why does PCC put up with a snobby abusive leader like Jeff Redlin? I'll tell you why, THE LOVE OF MONEY!!! That's all they care about at PCC. The system always comes first at PCC, but individual people do not matter.
Pastor Jeff Redlin is a narcist. Narcissism is a self-centered personality style characterized as having an excessive preoccupation with oneself and one's own needs, often at the expense of others. Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental health condition in which people have an unreasonably high sense of their own importance. God heard the cry of Abel after his brother Cain slew him. God heard the cry from Sodom, from the victims of the abuse. And God hears the cry of me and other victims of abuse at the hands of Campus Church and PCC leaders. All I humbly wanted was to come back to Campus Church to be a part of their church family, but they hate my guts so much that they have literally banned me in writing from returning. That is the way Satan handles things, not people who are filled with the unconditional love of God. I have done nothing to deserve this kind of emotional abuse from Pensacola Christian College.
PCC is a abusive authoritarian cult, where they selectively decide who can stay or who gets kicked out. I got banned from attending Campus Church at PCC in 2022, because I kindly told Pastor Jeff Redlin humbly that I hoped to find a wife. He scolded me for saying that, because my former wife abandoned and divorced me in 2006. Jeff has a wife, but I am supposed to satisfy myself with a pillow and napkins the rest of my life according to Pastor Redlin. These nutcases at PCC are out of touch with reality. They are hateful bigots who live in their own little self-praising, weirdo cult.
I am living proof that PCC doesn't give a damn about hurting people. I kindly told the pastors of PCC, and PCC leaders, that I have suffered in my neck from stenosis and radiculitis since 2004. I kindly shared my broken life, after my wife abandoned me in 2006. They couldn't have cared less. PCC leaders are religious brats, spoiled rotten brats! Tyranny is rarely seen except by those who are oppressed by it. I see the tyranny at PCC. Samantha Field sure as hell sees the tyranny at PCC. Allen Armentrout sees the tyrant at PCC. Read what these PCC students have to negatively say about PCC...
“Don't go here if you're a Christian; they don't actually follow the Bible. They just use it as an excuse to treat people like trash.” —Danielle Tate (2016)“This institution did more to harm my personal development than any other. As a 38 year old professional, I still bear the scars of how I was treated by this harsh, unloving, uncaring college.” —Greg S (2015), a former abused PCC student“17 years later and I'm still shaking off the trauma. So many extra-biblical rules it'll make your head spin. Great place for Pharisaical training if your into that. The rule book has more rules than the Bible.” —Jorn Anderson (September 2022), former mistreated PCC student“Pcc is the worst school ever. It was a complete waste of my time and money. They kicked me out for going to the wrong Sunday school class. And that was a year ago. They still will not release my transcripts which has put me behind in my college career. They schools not be called a Christian college if they cannot even live by what the Bible has to say. If I was able to take it all back and not go there I would in a heartbeat. I am warning you if you are thinking about going DONT DO IT!!!!” —Gavin Bufford (2017), abused former PCC student“I'm a 2018 graduate of PCC and I went here for all 4 years. It's really sad that this place calls itself Christian, its legalistic places like pcc that give Christians a bad name. They do have a lot of rules regulating most areas of life. I was treated very poorly and rude by several "Christians" on staff and faculty and I saw many of my friends treated the same way. I've personally seen people who were once people I would hang out with, when given positions of leadership become legalistic monsters taking joy in getting as many students in trouble as possible, and this is done in the name of Christ! As a student you are guilty until proven innocent and can be kicked out just because someone accuses you of something.” —Nick Harrison (2019), a mistreated PCC alumnus“It is NOT a friendly environment. All they care about is rules instead of encouraging and building you up in your Christian walk.” —Hannah Elizabeth Kirchhoff (December 2022), mistreated former PCC student“They call themselves Christians, but Christians are supposed to show compassion and patience.” —Angela (January 2023), mistreated former PCC student“In retrospect, I thank God for not having the opportunity to attend here (Pensacola Christian College) and myself for not making the decision to enroll.” —Richard Deuto (January 2023)“Crackpot unaccredited school.” —Meryl Montgomery (November 2022)
God knows that I love the people at PCC, including their terrible selfish leaders. Jesus teaches us in His Word to not just love and be concerned about the 99 sheep safe in the fold, but to help the 1% who have gone astray and need our help the most. This Bible truth is practically none existent in today's Bible colleges and churches, because 99% of churchgoers are either not genuinely saved (born-again) at all or are carnally minded. One simple email or phone call from PCC and we could be good friends overnight.
I've been waiting, but so far no one cares enough to call. They don't even have to apologize, just welcome me back in Christ's love. I simply want to come back to church, but they cannot even humble themselves enough to let a hurting grandpa come to church. They are bigoted, hateful religious hypocrites who are spiritually blinded just like the Laodicean church:
Revelation 3:15-17, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”
It astounds me that my worst enemies over the past decade has not been wicked unsaved heathens; but rather, wicked neo-evangelicals and the pastors who wickedly bid them Godspeed. Only an ungodly pastor would hobnob with neo-evangelicals (i.e., the rotten Bob Jones University cult). PCC thinks they are prospering because they have tons of students to victimize and boatloads of money to burn. Literally, PCC has tens of millions of dollars, and much more in real estate. The Laodiceans were also haughty and blinded by their worldly success. But Christ Himself removed their Rose-Colored Glasses and called them: naked, blind, miserable, poor and wretched. That is the PCC camp today, as phony as can be.
I have 4 adult children and 7 grandchildren. I am 56 years old. Yet, I am hated, shunned, ostracized and unwelcomed by my own Christian brethren at PCC's so-called “church.” I will never shut up. They can sue me and I'll just move to another state if need be, and upload all my articles again, and hundreds more. You cannot silence me PCC! You are wicked people who harbor hatred in your hearts against hurting sinners who beg for and need your love, compassion and understanding; but you have NONE to offer, because you don't walk with God, because you just don't care, because getting your next paycheck is all that really matter to you. PCC's leaders and staff already have the ONLY rewards that you will ever receive! I constantly pray for God to avenge me of Pensacola Christian College's hatred and cruelty.
To show my sincerity in the matter, I am still willing to reconcile with the PCC camp (if I haven't made that abundantly clear already in this blog), when they grow up spiritually and stop esteeming themselves better than me. I have already apologized to them (in three handwritten letters that I mailed to PCC and Campus Church in June, July and August of 2022, pleading for their love and understanding for my difficult situation). At the time I was surviving out of a suitcase in a cheap hotel, while Jeff Redlin was living large in his own big home. I told PCC and their pastors that I was very lonely, since my former wife abandoned me in 2006, but they didn't give a damn at all. These are the rottenest and lowest type of phony Christians in America's Bible colleges today.
PCC is pulling on the same rope as the Devil. This website is about salvation by faith alone in Jesus. PCC wickedly bids Godspeed to the Bob Jones University cult, who preach hardcore Lordship Salvation, promote Satan's corruptible seed (the corrupt modern Bible versions), and get Bible repentance to be saved wrong. According to BJU, faith is not enough to get to Heaven, they say you must also turn away from your sinful ways (which is 100% WORKS).
Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do. You don't need to give up your sinning to be saved; but rather, Jesus Christ died in your place on the cross, so that you can be saved be simply believing that He has already done it all for you. It is that simple to get to Heaven. The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU. Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty! Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.
Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work. If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from? Amen! This next quote epitomizes the shameful PCC camp today...
“There is nothing in God's universe that is so utterly useless as a merely formal Christian.” —Martyn Lloyd-Jones
If you'd like to ask them why they won't give me a second chance to attend Campus Church, please send them a friendly message to inquire. I can just about guarantee that they won't even care enough to respond (they don't give a damn about you either)...
I've said it hundreds of times in my preaching, and I'll continue to say it until our dear Savior takes me home to be with Him in Heaven: PEOPLE JUST WANT TO BE LOVED!!!
