I Do Not Want To Grow Thicker Skin

Ephesians 4:29-32, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.”

Thinking back over my life, I can remember numerous occasions where carnally-minded people told me: “Stewart, you need to grow thicker skin!” They said that to me because I am a sensitive person. But I make no apologies for who God made me. I like being sensitive. If I weren't sensitive, right doctrine wouldn't matter to me. If I weren't sensitive, people would matter as much to me. I care because God cares. If you walk with God you WILL care about people, doctrine, little things and the small details of everything. God is a caring God!!!

I wonder about people who advise others to “grow thicker skin,” wanting them to become harder, tougher emotionally, more calloused and INSENSTIVE to the world around them. No thank you, I like being sensitive! I want to be in the moment, present, awake to righteousness, paying attention to the details. Folks, that is exactly what is wrong with pastors today like Jeff Redlin, Timothy Zacharias, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Gary Walton and Chuck Phelps—they have grown thicker skin and truth doesn't matter to them anymore, money does. People don't matter to them anymore. Oh sure, they'll say that people matter, because it would make them look bad and expose them if they told the truth, but their behavior and words (and disturbing lack thereof) evidences that people and truth really aren't important to them.

There is something wrong with a pastor or religious leader who is okay with using dozens of different Bible revisions. Which Bible we use matters! There is something woefully wrong with today's apostate clergy who are okay with the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, the Devil's lie of wrong repentance (aka, the turn from your sin garbage to be saved) and the Devil's corrupt bible versions. Somebody has got to care! Well, I do care.

Something is wrong with Pastor Sean Quinlan from the Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp, who in 2018 wrongly accused me of being obsessed over the Bible.” Something is wrong with the shameful pastors of the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, who in 2017 called Dr. Jack Hyles, Pastor Al Lacy and me a cult” for exposing the Devil's modern Bible perversions. Something is very wrong with Pastor Jeff Redlin of Campus Church at PCC, who in 2021 wrongly accused me of finding weaknesses in ungodly infidel pastors who preach Lordship Salvation. Today's preachers are pathetic!!!

It is high time for America's churches to fire their rotten apple pastors, and bring in humble men who love the truth, love hurting sinners and aren't too proud and haughty to change. It is time for a big change folks! WE NEED A SPIRITUAL REVIVAL in this nation! It is way past the time to clean house in the churches, to remove the dead branches and make way for the new. The churches need to be purged of the old dead pastors who refuse to heed THE TRUTH. Pastor Jeff Redlin berated and mistreated me for being a truth-teller. SHAME on Campus Church and Pensacola Christian College for allowing him to continue abusing people.

When I told Jeff Redlin that I was divorced for 16 years, hurting from loneliness and someday I longed to find a woman to remarry, he again berated me, actually scolding me for looking for a wife at Campus Church. That is not a genuine man of God, that is a horrible phony! Any godly pastor would have discerned my pain and shew some empathy, offering to pray with me over the matter. Jeff Redlin is an academic, not a man of God. He has no business leading people of any group size. It saddens me to know that thousands of PCC students will end up influenced by Mr. Redlin, growing THICKER SKIN like him, so that hurting redeemed sinners like me are made to feel like garbage when they attend Campus Church.

I humbly asked Pastor Redlin for an apology, for mistreating me as a divorced person, and for mistreating me for faithfully contending for the Christian faith, to which he refused and I never heard from him again. What a wicked person! In a word, Jeff Redlin is sinfully arrogant. God will judge between me and him (Romans 3:2). I have told THE TRUTH about the corrupt Bob Jones University crowd. Jeff Redlin sinfully bids them Godspeed (2nd John 1:11). The issue is not about me dear reader, it is about how pastors treat people. The issue is about the truth. The issue is about right doctrine. I am sick and tired of being insulted, mistreated, shunned, ostracized, slandered and hated by pastors for TELLING THE TRUTH. Go figure!

So, no, I don't want to grow thicker skin, ever. I like being sensitive. Some people might even call me oversensitive, but the truth is that they are INSENSITIVE!!! The Bible says that the Lord was not in the fire, the strong wind or the earthquake, He was just a small voice. ...

1st Kings 19:11-13, “And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD.  And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave.  And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?

Dear friend, you won't find God in the strong wind of Campus Church, nor the strange fire of the Charismatic movement, nor in the earthquake of New Evangelicalism; but you will find God in the still, small, quite Voice of the Word of God. Luke 16:31, “And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. God doesn't speak to people through Franklin Graham's pro-Catholic heathen crusades. God doesn't speak today through milquetoast puppets like Jeff Redlin, who sinfully bids Godspeed to the Calvinist and Alexandrian cult at Bob Jones University. God speaks through humble nobody's like me, who faithfully preach THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD!!! No man can be used of God who refuses to humble himself to the Scriptures!

We've got a bunch of theological liars in the churches today. The accursed Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) presently has 45,000 member churches, all of which subscribe to the demonic lie that you must “repent of your sin with all your heart if you want to get to Heaven. No such teaching is found in the inspired King James Bible. So what the Devil's crowd has done is re-write the Bible to fit their ungodly corrupt theology. All of the new bibles say that you must turn away from living in sin to get to Heaven. But the Bible doesn't really say that.

For example: Consider Mark 1:15 in the Devil's Easy-To-Read Version (ERV)...

The Greek word for “repent” in Mark 1:15 in the King James Bible is metanoeo, which means, “to think differently.” This is the verb form of the word. The noun form is metanoia (“a change of mind”). Repentance is a simple change of mind. It DOESN'T mean to “change your hearts and lives,” which is what the corrupt ERV says!!! . . .
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” [emphasis added]

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — Mark 1:15, “He said, “The right time is now here. God’s kingdom is very near. Change your hearts and lives, and believe the Good News!” [emphasis added]
WICKEDNESS!!! That is wrong, wrong, wrong! Repentance is “a change of mind,” not “a change of heart and life.” You cannot show me anywhere in the Bible that says to “turn from sin” or “repent from sin” to be saved. Acts 20:21 speaks of “repentance toward God,” not from sin. 2nd Timothy 2:25 speaks of “repentance to the acknowledgment of the truth,” not from sin. We are saved by BELIEVING, not repenting. Yes, repentance is necessary for salvation, but to “repent” simply means to change your mind, acknowledging THE TRUTH that you are a lost sinner, so that you will believe the Gospel (Galatians 3:24-26).

I like my sensitive thin skin! I don't want to become hard, uncaring, calloused and insensitive like Pastor Jeff Redlin, Timothy Zacharias, Sean Quinlan, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, Joe Hansen, Jared Baldwin, Gary Walton, John MacArthur and other wicked pastors today who are destroying the work of God by their coldness, indifference and incompetence! Someday say, “Amen!

The reason why I started my website ministry 20 years ago, by God's grace, back in 2002, is simply because I am sensitive. I do care! I have never accepted a single penny for my labors for Christ and never will. It is a labor of love for God, people and truth!!! My website stands apart from most other websites, because I make a fuss over the little details that New Evangelical pastors make fun of me over. They laugh at me at Pensacola Christian College, mocking me. Pastor Jeff Redlin and the other Campus Church pastors scorn my ministry because I preach THE TRUTH without compromise or apology like they do! I tell THE TRUTH, even if it offends some people. It is sad but true that my biggest ministry enemies are pastors! That is because some are jealous of me, like Sean Quinan and Jeff Redlin.

Others hate me because I expose their false teachings, like the pastors at Harvest Baptist Church cult on Guam. I exposed their demonic Lordship Salvation! I exposed their demonic Devil's bibles! I exposed their false unsaved idol, Martin Luther (1483-1546). Mr. Luther taught the heresy of Baptismal Regeneration (that you must be water baptized to go to Heaven) his entire life! That means Martin Luther went to Hell forever in his false religion. I say that sadly. NO ONE is saved who adds water baptism to faith alone in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ!!!

Most of today's pastors, evangelists, missionaries and Bible college professors are blinded by Satan. They are serving mammon (a money-making career) and not God (Luke 16:13). They are serving their bellies and not the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 16:17-18). They are wolves in sheep's clothing (Matthew 7:13-15).

I Am A VOICE!

Be Careful About Negative Thinking

Philippians 4:6-9, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”

I receive quite a few emails and messages from people through my social media ministry. As such I see trends in people. A lot of believers struggle with mental problems, which are caused by themselves, from choosing to think negatively all the time.

I have several web visitors who email me to vent. Their emails are filled with wrath, bitterness, blaming others, angry at God, resentful of their less than ideal upbringing, complaining that there are no good churches in their area where they live, et cetera. Anyone who has written to me over the years, and knows my personality, knows that I love helping others. I take the time to respond with lengthy replies, sharing sermons and Biblical resources to help people. I do this in love for God, truth and people. I sincerely just want to be a blessing for Jesus Christ.

But I have a handful of troubled web visitors who are self-destructive in their thinking. They are constantly negative, complaining all the time, seeing everything in a negative light, confident that they are beyond hope spiritually. I am always patient at first, giving them the benefit of the doubt that they just need a loving friend who will not condemn them, but just listen with a caring and understanding soul. But after I have interacted with someone for a period of time, usually a few months, then I need to exert some tough love to help them.

Today I needed to do that. A young man has been writing to me for a couple years. We have exchanged hundreds of emails. He tells me that demons are afflicting him. Despite all the sermons, books and Bible resources I have shared with him about God's plan of salvation, he still says he cannot settle the matter. He thinks he may not be saved, because of sinful bad habits that he struggles with. I have tried and tried to help him, explaining that the sins in our life have absolutely nothing to do with God's free gift of eternal life.

So today I need to tell him that I cannot help him, nor can anyone else, until he changes his negative attitude. Everything I say to try to help him is countered with anger, excuses, blaming others and a spirit of defeat and doom! Everything in life is a mindset. I cried because I had no shoes, then I met a man who had no feet. The Bible says we are what we think! Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.” NO ONE can help someone who is constantly negative, angry at the world and possesses a critical spirit.

It is not a mere coincidence that the Word of God mentions thought control alongside prayer in our text passage. Here it is again:
Philippians 4:6-9, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”
You see, it is counterproductive to pray about things to avoid worrying about them, if you're just going to turn around and complain about everything with a critical spirit. Philippians 4:6 teaches us as believers not to worry (anxiety, to be careful); but rather, to in every thing by prayer and supplication let our requests be made known unto God. Verse 7 says that by taking matters to God in prayer, then we can claim the blessed peace of God which passeth all understanding. Prayer works because God is real and He cares (1st Peter 5:7). I am 100% against praying as a mere therapy, mental relaxation or form of contemplative meditation. That is new age and paganism. We should pray without ceasing because our risen Savior lives!

I wrote this blog to remind you dear reader to guard your thought life, it is priceless. My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 16:32, “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. Be careful about hanging around negative people, because attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching? Sadly, I loath when some people contact me, because I know it is all going to be negative.

To be honest, I quickly skim through such emails and don't allow them to waste my time. Proverbs 14:7, “Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.” You just cannot help some people, until they first come to their senses and want to help themselves. The Bible tells us that the wayward Prodigal Son eventually hit rock bottom in life, and only then in the hog pen (literally) does the Bible says that “he came to himself, and he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!” (Luke 15:17). Sin always takes you to the hog pen of life, straight to the bottom!

Negative thinking is like a cancer, which once it starts spreads slowly until it corrupts the entire body. Philippians 4:8 teaches for God's saints to THINK ON THESE THINGS! What things? Things that are of good report, lovely things, good things, pure things, truthful things, et cetera. You can call this brainwashing if you dare, but it is just good common sense. What a person fills their mind day-by-day with will affect their feelings, their day, their mental stability, their walk with God, everything.

That is why I am 100% against the Devil's public school system, which is nothing less than indoctrination centers for government propaganda. Those poor impressionable children's minds are subjected to all manner of Satanic evolution, worldly philosophies, secular entertainment and culture, humanism, communism, historical lies, sex perversion and new age religion. A nation can survive foreign attacks, but it cannot survive its fools within. As a people we are destroying ourselves! The American newsmedia is absolutely negative, which Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) properly called: “Manure Spreaders!

As I drive around the small city of Pensacola (population 52,000 people), I see negative attorney billboards everywhere. One billboard says: “Lawyer Up!” In other words, the lawyer wants you to pay him monthly before you need a lawyer, so it won't cost you as much if and when you do down the road (God forbid). I really detest lawyers! I saw another attorney billboard this week which read: “Call me when you meet an irresponsible driver.” Pensacola is full of a bunch of ambulance-chasing greedy lawyers! Evidently they are hard-up for business. Such “sue thy neighbour” type of ambush advertising undermines the health of the community.

Whether it be in your own personal mind, your local church, your home, or community, negative thinking is destructive. I decided many years ago that God is a very good God. So I don't ever need to make that decision again. Some people love God one day, but hate Him the next. We are so fickle as Americans, loving God when things are going well, but then we curse and blame God in anger when things don't go as planned. How ungrateful! I decided years ago to just believe the Holy Scriptures that say God is just (1st John 1:9), God is faithful (1st Corinthians 1:9), God is good (Psalms 145:9), God is love (1st John 4:8) and God cares about me (1st Peter 5:7). Everything that God does is right (Job 9:3).

So no matter how bad my life may go tomorrow, be poor on the street, and my health woeful fail—GOD IS ALWAYS GOOD! GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL! GOD ALWAYS LOVES ME. GOD ALWAYS CARES ABOUT ME. GOD IS ALWAYS A BEAUTIFUL, FAIR, SCRUMDIDDLYUMPTIOUS, TERWONDERFUL AND A DARN GOOD GOD!!! Psalms 145:3, “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”

Guard your mind dear friend. Avoid negative influences around you. There is nothing worse than a critical person who thinks the world is against them. The proper mindset of a believer is one of HAVE FAITH IN GOD (Mark 11:22b). Jesus said that! Everywhere that our beloved Savior went, He told people to HAVE FAITH IN GOD!!! John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. If you are older like me, age 55, then you remember Glum from the popular cartoon, The Adventures Of Gulliver...

Glum: We'll Never Make It, We're Doomed!!!

A lot of believers won't talk that way in public around other people, but they think that way in their personal life in secret, and it cripples their life. Depression is ugly! I have battled personal depression for decades. I have constant chronic neck pain which stifles my ambition, overshadows my day, ruins many moments and makes it difficult to interact with people. Thankfully, Jesus uses my weakness to show forth His strength, by His grace. 2nd Corinthians 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” As believers we don't grow in strength, we grow in God's grace (Galatians 2:20). GOD IS SO GOOD!!!

But despite my pain and oft depression, I haven't lost my faith in God. I haven't lost my joy in the Lord. I still rejoice daily that my name is written in Heaven in the Lamb's Book of Life. I wrote this blog to encourage others to LIVE ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF LIFE!!! That is Biblical by the way. Colossians 3:1-3, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.Every redeemed child of God ought to live ABOVE THE CLOUDS, setting our mind and heart upon the things of Heaven, and not upon this earth. That is why when I go places (whether it be to the doctor, the grocery store, church or wherever) I have God's shine on my face. I am an adopted child of the great eternal King of kings and Lord of lords!!!

It Is Really Pathetic What Our Country Has Become

Matthew 7:11-12, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” 1st Timothy 6:10, For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

Truly the love of money is the root of all evil. I am so sick and tired of our rotten, greedy, selfish and ungodly American culture. A perfect example is when you search the internet for trustworthy information, which you won't get! It doesn't matter if you use Google, Bing, Duck Duck Go, or whatever, the results you get back will be dishonest and intended to manipulate you as a consumer to get your money. It is wickedness!!!

For example: I went to search online today for the best affordable P-bass guitars. Hundreds of results came back, and each and every stinking one of those results contain a rotten message like this, a disclaimer which tells you that you are BEING MANIPULATED FOR GREED...
LEGAL INFORMATION

Tone Topics is a member of multiple affiliate advertising programs designed to earn us fees that support the growth and future of the website. We do this by linking to products and services we highly recommend. Some of these include Amazon Associates, Reverb, and Rakuten Affiliate. We disclose that we earn commissions based on referring traffic and potential customers to these companies. SOURCE
So they're going to refer you to a bunch of garbage and inferior merchandise. When I went to search a couple weeks ago for a “professional banjo” on Google, I got back hundreds of worthless results, all members of greedy affiliate programs to rip people off, and ALL the banjos they recommended for me to purchase were crappy junk made in China!!! Not one professional banjo was recommended, which will cost you at least $3,000 and up.

Stelling banjos are among the best, and most expensive. NOT ONE of those hundreds of affiliate programs recommended buying a Stelling banjo. You see, they are exploitative liars. They are dishonest people, manipulating the naïve public to make a buck. The Bible calls such money “filthy lucre” because you obtained it by shady means. Although it is honest to sell things, and to recommend what to purchase, it is very dishonest to suggest inferior toy banjos, tin-can sounded crap from China, because sellers know that is what 95% of the public buy, so they take advantage of consumer ignorance. I sincerely wanted to know about professional banjos, and am willing to pay a higher price for it, but all they can recommend to me is garbage, because they are wicked, greedy and couldn't care less about anybody except themselves. That is how low-down, dishonest and crooked Americans have become today.
 
I miss the 1970's, when there were no microwaves, no cellphones, no credit cards, no cameras all over public places, no internet tracking of everywhere you go, there was no public internet until the 1990's came! The 1970's was a simple time still in the United States. Where I lived in Chicago, people used string to section off their front garden. Move ahead 30 years later and everybody has tall chainlink fences around their lawns, with warning signs that threaten they'll call police.

Adults are no longer permitted to enter or sit in public playground without a child with them, and if you do people will wonder if you're a pedophile, call the police, and you will be arrested and fined. This is what our nation has succumbed and descended to. Homosexuals have come out of the closet and are quickly preparing the stage for the coming Man of Sin, the Antichrist.

The most unloving and uncaring people today in America are pastors of churches, go figure! I've never seen such calloused indifference, theological incompetence and ungodly hatred as I have from the Bob Jones University and Pensacola Christian College camp over the past several years. God's judgment is upon them!!! You show me a pastor who lacks unconditional love for everyone, and I'll show you a phony who does not genuinely walk with God. We've got too many lousy employees running churches today into the ground spiritually.

Oh, they may be growing in size, but they are as rotting corpses that are swelling, and not going in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. If anything, serving God faithfully (as I am doing by exposing the Calvinist infidels at Bob Jones University, and Pensacola Christian College for sinfully bidding them Godspeed), your church will decrease in popularity and size. So be it, praise the Lord! THE TRUTH must be preaching, without compromise and without apology, for the souls of mankind are at stake. Weep and how Jeff Redlin, Timothy Zacharias, Sean Quinlan, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Chuck Phelps, Steve Pettit and John MacArthur, for the miseries that shall come upon your wicked souls for your wickedness, theological incompetence, woeful lack of God's love and for supporting evil!!! The eternal day of reckoning of these ungodly phonies is soon coming!!!

It is really pathetic what our country has become. Whether it is the millions of lying webpages on Google, all members of affiliate programs to make a buck off misleading you to buy inferior trash from China; or the hundreds of thousands of lying, incompetent and worthless pastors today, who won't preach THE TRUTH, won't preach against sin by name, won't expose false teachers by name, and woefully lack God's love for hurting sinners—our nation has sunk lower than low morally, ethically, economically, health-wise, spiritually, et cetera. I pray for God's withholding hand of judgment to come down in wrath upon this perverse, uncaring and unloving nation like a nuclear holocaust (read Revelation chapter 18, which I am convinced is the United States, which will be utterly destroyed by fire in just ONE HOUR! We deserve it, and Hell beneath too). Until that time comes, I am committed to preaching the Gospel to get people saved.

Liars are everywhere today! Jeff Redlin is a liar! Timothy Zacharias is a liar! Marty Herron is a liar! Steve Pettit is a liar! Sean Quinlan is a liar! Joe Hansen is a liar! Jared Baldwin is a liar! Gary Walton is a liar! John MacArthur is a liar! Paul Washer is a liar! Billy Graham is a liar! Pat Robertson is a liar! Joel Osteen is a liar! Joyce Meyer is a liar! Rick Warren is a liar! Chuck Phelps is a liar! Yet all these wicked men are haughty, full of arrogance and sinful pride, refusing to heed THE TRUTH. Romans 3:4 promises that I will be vindicated in eternity because what I am preaching agrees with the Holy Bible.

Lordship Salvation is of the Devil. Turning away from sins to be saved is of the Devil. All of these modern counterfeit Bible revisions and of the Devil. And those who reprobates who support the religious cults at Bob Jones University, Master's University, Moody Bible Institute and Faith Bible College and Theological Seminary are of the Devil as well. SHAME on all these untoward corrupted men for betraying the inspired Word of God and the Gospel. To attack the grace of God is to attack the God of grace!!!

We must be as Joshua in these dark times of spiritual apostasy in the churches today, who exclaimed in Joshua 24:15, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

Sinful Indifferent Attitude Of Pensacola Christian College

Titus 1:9-14, “Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.”

I love this vital passage of Scripture! It condemns all false teachers, who SUBVERT WHOLE HOUSES, teaching things (e.g., Lordship Salvation and the heresy “turn from your sin to be saved”) they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake (pursuing a career as a pastor, clergy or Bible professor). The inspired Holy Bible is very plain and clear that godly men are commanded to RUFUTE (expose) all counterfeit plans of salvation, which corrupt families. Dear reader, that means every God-fearing preacher today should be exposing the cult at Bob Jones University, who today preach hardcore Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation). Yet, I keep getting rebuked and mistreated by the Pensacola Christian College camp for obeying God. What gives? 

When I attended the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam for the year of 2018, Pastor Sean Quinlan shamefully berated me for my zeal to expose the rotten Bob Jones crowd. I was speaking with Bill, a man at the church, and my friend, about what is wrong with the modern Bible revisions. While I was edifying my brother in Christ, I mentioned that “Bob Jones University sells corruptible seed (Devil's bibles). Pastor Quinlan was eavesdropping on our conversation and became upset when he heard that. I found out from talking to Quinlan that he bids Godspeed to the Calvinist Bob Jones camp!

I was disgusted with him as a church leader. Pastor Quinlan literally called the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam: “our sister church!” I rebuked him upon the authority of God's Word, informing him that Harvest Baptist Church preaches the Devil's false gospel of Calvinism! Quinlan shameful replied: “It's none of our business what they do at Harvest!” I fully knew then that I was talking to a total damned fool. Any pastor who sinfully bids Godspeed to Calvinists ought not be trusted to preach behind any pulpit.

You see friends, what has horribly happened is that making money is the most important thing today for professed Christians. Of course, no one who believes and teaches Calvinism is saved. Anyone who ADDS “turn away from your sins to be saved is lost! That is telling them to KEEP THE LAW (the Old Testament law, which includes the Ten Commandments). What saith the Scripture? Romans 3:19-20, Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Christ came into the world to die on the cross for our sins, not demand that we forsake committing sin as a prerequisite to receive His free gift of eternal life.

Bob Jones University and company are guilty of SUBVERTING WHOLE HOUSES of people. Yet, you'll have a difficult time finding any preachers today who spare not, and cry aloud, against the doctrinal sins of the Bob Jones camp. Isaiah 58:1, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” That same preaching principle applies to ALL PREACHERS!!! If God wanted the preachers to cry aloud, spare not, and lift up their voice like a trumpet 2,700 years ago in Isiah's time, then God wants preachers to have that same fire and conviction in our preaching today.

So where are they? Huh? Where are the preachers today who cry aloud, spare not, and lift up their voice like a trumpet. The only one's I know and Pastor Steven Anderson and his band of fellow preachers around the country (Bruce Mejia, Roger Jimenez, Jonathan Shelley, Grayson Fritts, et cetera). The wimpy, unsaved and corrupt Pat Robertson, Joel Osteen, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, Steven Furtick and Rick Warren type preachers are sending the world to Hell. Sadly, pastors are no longer preachers today! If your pastor does not cry aloud, spare not, and lift up his voice like a trumpet to expose sin, he is a cowardly wimp and not a godly preacher!!! The shamefully wimpy and sinfully compromised  Sean Quinlan and Jeff Redlin (Pensacola Christian College) types of our generation are not going to save this nation! Those bad pastors are the problem today with churches!!!

I couldn't believe the ungodly things that Pastor Sean Quinlan said to me in 2018. He defended Calvinists! Quinlan is so very WRONG to say that it is not our business what they do in the Bob Jones camp. Buster, IT IS OUR BUSINESS!!! How else could the Apostle Paul have known in Titus 1:13-14 that heresy was being propagated elsewhere, unless he made it his business to know what other ministers and churches were preaching? It is my business, a nd it's yours too.

Kindly said, every born-again child of God should be taking a Biblical stand against the Roman Catholic churches in your community! I'm not saying to bash Catholics, be unkind or burn down their cathedrals, God forbid. We should be nice, loving, helpful and gentle toward everyone, regardless of what they believe about religion. I would NEVER suggest or sanction committing a crime. But I am saying every preacher should be speaking publicly from his church pulpit against the Catholic religion, exposing their damnable Sacramental Salvation, which cannot produce the new birth in Christ Jesus. Jesus warned everyone in John 3:1-7 that in order to enter into Heaven, YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN (John 3:7b). The Devil's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. Satan is a beautiful liar!

Pensacola Christian College (PCC) and their graduates have a pathetic indifferent attitude, which is contagious and deadly like the COVID-19 virus. PCC are so busy making money and going through all the motions of an academic institution, that they lost sight LONG AGO about what really matters! RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

When I first moved from Guam to Pensacola in July of 2021, I chose to attend Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College. I was quickly frustrated when I heard assistant pastor, Timothy Zacharias on July 21 preach wrong repentance. The preceding link takes you to a screenshot from their Founder's Class, which they showed the Wednesday night I was sitting in the Campus Church auditorium. I was disgusted as I listened to Pastor Zacharias pervert the Gospel of free grace, falsely teaching that your behavior will change if you've really repented. That has absolutely NOTHING to do with getting saved folks!

You and I are dirty guilty sinners, for whom Jesus Christ gave His life on the cross to pay our debt of sin. Your life doesn't have to change to prove anything! Behavior modification is not part of the Gospel. The problem is that most preachers mix up and confuse sanctification with justification. You've got to keep the two completely separate! I love what John Bunyan said:
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —John Bunyan (1628-1688)
Wow, that is a helpful quote! He nailed it. What Jeff Redlin and Tim Zacharias are sinfully doing is mixing sanctification with justification, corrupting the Gospel. A change of behavior should NEVER be mentioned along with getting saved, because it comes later. To mention a change of behavior, or turning away from sins, or anything else that requires sacrifice on the part of the person getting saved, negates the legal transaction. Getting saved is a legal matter. You are a guilty sinner if you are not saved. Christ paid your debt of sin, but that payment must be appropriated or else you won't receive it, ever. You appropriate it by faith in the Good News (Gospel) of Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

When I attended Campus Church, Pastor Jeff Redlin horribly mistreated me. At first he seemed okay and I felt like maybe he cared, but it wasn't even two weeks and someone contacted the church to slander me. Sadly, Pastor Redlin didn't tell them to shut up, he acted on the slander and said some unkind words to me, to his utter shame. SHAME on Jeff Redlin for listening to Gospel, for jumping to conclusions, for not talking to me first if he had something to say about it. That is a little man and a very bad pastor!

Even worse, Redlin berated me for being divorced and hoping after 15 years of loneliness to someday remarry. My former and only wife abandoned me in 2006. The divorce was her choice alone. I cried and begged for her not to go, but she refused, which I have in writing in the divorce documents. Yet, according to the ungodly PCC camp, you're just supposed to masturbate for the rest of your life, because “Christ is all you need.” Even God Himself says that it is not good for a man to be alone. Genesis 2:18, “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” These foolish people at Pensacola Christian College are out of touch with reality. What total jerks!!!

The sad truth is that they invite and thrive on happily married couple in the PCC camp (and that includes formerly divorced couples who are now already remarried), but if you are divorced and still single like me they will condemn, shun, reject and ostracize you like you are garbage for even mentioning remarriage. That is exactly what Jeff Redlin shamefully did to me, and it is EMOTIONAL ABUSE!

Something is very WRONG with that kind of ungodly hypocrisy!!! SHAME on the Pensacola Christian College crowd for berating divorced people, and for sinfully bidding Godspeed to the accursed Bob Jones University crowd (who preach another gospel from another book, all the while attacking the Gospel of free grace and the inspired King James Bible).

Men's Prayer Groups Bother Me

Luke 8:15, “But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. John 15:8, Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

The biggest Baptist church that I am aware of in Pensacola, which I won't mention to be nice, advertises their weekly Men's Prayer Group of Thursdays. What bothers me a lot is that the church has no scheduled time to go soulwinning in public.

Folks, the world is going to Hell! A group of believers can gather together to pray until their faces turn blue, but that's not going to win anyone to Jesus Christ! We've got to go soulwinning! That is how churches are built. I am not aware of any soulwinning churches in Pensacola. Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College (PCC) sends out some college men to pass out church flyers to invite people to church, but that's not soulwinning. And they do it as a small kind of private thing, not something that is strongly promoted in the church. It is sad! I think they just do it to make themselves feel better and to boast that they share the Gospel, but the sad truth is that PCC refuses to even use the term SOULWINNING (because it would identify them with the Hyles-Anderson College camp, which they despise so much).

I have no regard or use for Men's Prayer Groups, unless it is followed by door-to-door public soulwinning! The saints did meet in the upper room to pray (Acts chapter 2), but it was in preparation for preaching the Gospel to tens of thousands of people from many different nations on the glorious Day of Pentecost. Dear friend, I once heard a knucklehead preacher on Chicago's northside say: “Prayer is not preparation for the greater work, prayer is the greater work!” Well, that pastor is a fool, because whether you like it or not, SOULWINNING IS THE GREATER WORK!!!

We are not going to pray the lost world out of Hell, fire and damnation. We must preach the GOOD NEWS (the GOSPEL) of Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). I am all for group prayer, but only if it precedes going soulwinning, or there is a definite related purpose for gathering to pray.

For example: In Acts 12:1-5 the early church prayer together for the Apostle Peter. James, the Apostle, had just been beheaded by wicked Herod. When Herod saw that those wicked Jews delighted in James' death, he fully intended to execute Peter next, and would have if God had not intervened on his behalf. But God did not deliver Peter from prison so he could go back to fishing. God rescued Peter so he could get back to PREACHING THE GOSPEL.

Over 99% of evangelical churches today do not go soulwinning publicly. Nearly all churches today are evangelistic churches, meaning that they expect church members to invite people to church to hear the Gospel. That is fine to do, but that is not the Bible way. What saith the Scripture? Luke 14:23, “And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” Some critic of soulwinning said that, “God is not interested in numbers!” Well friend, He sure ain't interested in empty pews either! What do you mean God is not interested in numbers? Why sure He is, that is why the Lord said He wants His house full.

You are only as close to God as you desire and make an effort to share the Gospel to get people saved. I didn't say that, God did. Read from our text passages again. Luke 8:15, “But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. John 15:8, Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. The parable of The Sower And The Seeds in Luke 8:11-15 is NOT about getting saved, it is about maturing in the Lord so that you perpetuate the Gospel, winning more souls to Christ. After all, that is The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). Every born-again Christian is commanded in the Word of God to fulfill The Great Commission. What is this Great Commission:
  1. GO YE into all the world preaching the Gospel, to get people saved.
  2. BAPTIZE THEM (converts) with full immersion under water, which is their public profession of faith, symbolizing the Gospel. Baptism is an outward snapshot of what has happened inwardly.
  3. TEACH THEM all things. Literally, we should indoctrinated new converts with the inspired Word of God, teaching them right away to go out and share the Gospel to lead people to Christ. God intended that the Gospel perpetuate itself from generation to generation.
Here is The Great Commission in the Bible:
Matthew 28:18-20, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Amen and amen. I loathe men's and women's prayer groups, when that church has no commitment to obey The Great Commission. For most church it is The Great Omission!!! Jesus didn't give us The Great Commission to gather together for Bible study and prayer at a church, while the surrounding community goes to Hell.

When I attended the shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam for one year, the men of the church gathered together each Saturday morning for breakfast and prayer. But the church had NO SCHEDULED TIME TO GO SOULWINNING. Harvest was and still is not, a soulwinning church on Guam, I call them “salary-suckers,” because that is all they do. It is disgusting!!! Pastors' Marty Herron and Gary Walton are nothing more than lousy religious employees, shameful opportunists, hiring and firing people to get their filthy lucre. I not only wouldn't give you a dime for those wicked men, I'd put them into prison for life if I had the power, because of the horrible things they do to people in the name of God.

Both of those ungodly men fully support the hellish Bob Jones University (BJU) cult today, who preach the Devil's lies of Lordship Salvation (Calvinism) and wrong repentance (aka, the “turn from your sins to be saved” tommyrot). BJU is the fountainhead of the Satanic corrupt Westcott and Hort Greek perverted text! Yet, Marty Herron and Gary Walton sinfully bid BJU Godspeed, making themselves accomplices and partakers of their evil deeds (2nd John 1:11). If you think I am making too bog a deal of this, just wait until God casts them into the fires of Hell for all eternity for trusting in a counterfeit Gospel. Telling someone to “repent of your sin” to be saved, is essentially the same as telling them to keep God's Old Testament law to get to Heaven. That is works (Romans 3:19-20). 

By the way, the corrupt Baptist church that I mentioned at the beginning of this blog is guilty of preaching hardcore Lordship Salvation. So they are not even born-again Christians! No wonder they don't go soulwinning, they don't even understand how to be saved! I am leery of public prayer meetings, they are a waste of time for any church that does not obey The Great Commission. Most churchgoers nowadays are guilty of Sitting On The Premises instead of Standing On The Promises! How about you my dear friend?

Please don't misunderstand, I believe in the power of prayer, but it is the same as training a soldier to use a gun. What good is that gun and training if there are never any wars to defend one's country? What would be the purpose? Likewise, we've got a bunch of idle fools today meeting at church to pray about every little petty thing, but getting people saved isn't one of their priorities, and it should be the main focus.

We Make Friends Or Enemies One Person At A Time

Proverbs 18:19, A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.” Proverbs 18:24, “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

It takes years to build friendships and seconds to lose them forever if we're careless. An important lesson that I learned a very long time ago is that we make or break relationships one person at a time. It matters how we treat others. A business does not get bad reviews overnight; but rather, it takes years of mistreating customers to earn a bad reputation.

Any of my web visitors who knows me well, from corresponding with me over the years, honestly knows that I always take the time to write quality emails back to people. I do this because everybody is important! No one is unimportant. Everybody matters to God; and that includes atheists, convicted criminals, homosexuals, pastors and all manner of sinners! We should never accept the sin with the sinner, nor reject the sinner with the sin. People matter!!!

When I write scathing articles to expose bad pastors, I can only speak of my unfortunate negative encounter with them. They made a very bad impression on me. When I first met Pastor Jeff Redlin at Campus Church of Pensacola Christian College, I told him honestly that I was sleeping in Walmart's parking lot. When I arrived from Guam in Pensacola, the ungodly Woodspring Suites Hotel cancelled my 30-day confirmed reservation without warning. God will punish them, because the Bible says they did it to Jesus (Matthew 25:40, 45). Sadly, when I told this to Jeff Redlin, that I was sleeping in Walmart's parking lot, he literally just walked away. I saw the startled look on his face when he heard what I had said. Pastor Redlin didn't care!!! So while he slept in his cozy warm bed, I slept in Walmart's parking lot! Real great Christian that Jeff Redlin, huh? No, he is a horrible phony as a pastor. Redlin only cares about his 6-digit undeserved outrageous salary!

You see folks, someone is always watching us! Someone is always listening to our words. Someone is always watching how we treat others. Jesus knew this and behaved himself accordingly. Oh, that we would do the same! I am not perfect, but for all those who have written to me since 2002 when I began my website ministry, Jesus-is-Savior.com, I have gone out of my way to help others, writing book-length emails, pouring out my heart oftentimes to be a blessing and help someone who was down, confused or was hurt at church by a phony hypocrite like Pastor Jeff Redlin. By God's grace I have fought the good fight!

I have received countless emails from hurt and frustrated people, who said that they contacted local pastors, but no one ever bothered to email back. I have patiently listened to many people, who told me about the mistreatment and abusive words spoken to them by a church pastor. Dear reader, something is very wrong with that.
“No one is any better a Christian, than they are kind.” —Dr. David Gibbs Jr. (a quote from the beautiful sermon “HIS VOICE” about loving the unloving with God's love!)
Kindly said, Pastor Jeff Redlin at Campus Church is not kind, he is mean, cold-hearted and a religious prude. I pray that Pensacola Christian College would make motion to have him fired and replaced with someone with a heart for hurting people. David Gibbs Jr. is so right, you are only as good a Christian as how you treat other people, including the worst among us!

When I came to Campus Church for the first time in July of 2021, God knows that I had only love, compassion and a desire to be a blessing to the church and college. And I wrote that all down and sent it to Pastor Redlin. I kindly mentioned that I am a thankful Hyles-Anderson College graduate and just wanted to love everyone and be a blessing at Campus Church. That jerk didn't even bother to acknowledge me! Literally, he completely ignored me for 10 days. I didn't want to assume anything, so I kindly approached him after the Sunday morning service, only to ask why he hadn't replied. Redlin had a guilty look all over the his when he saw me, knowing that he had been avoiding me. He backed away like a coward and put his hands in the air, signifying that he didn't have an answer why he hadn't replied. I was hurt.

Right in front of his wife, he then said that if I ever find a woman to marry, he wouldn't perform the wedding. I just looked at him like he was insane, because Sunday morning after church is not the time or place for being a jerk! I had emailed him 2 weeks earlier, confiding in him that my wife divorced me 15 years ago, and I was a lonely man desiring a wife. I told him that I hoped to meet a woman at Campus Church. Do you know what that creep did? He scolded me for coming to church to find a wife! Folks, any pastor is a fool to talk to a 54 year old divorced man like that! I'm not one of his students at PCC. What is wrong with Jeff Redlin?

It's bad enough that he left me to sleep in Walmart's parking lot the first day I met him (at the Campus Church 4th of July Picnic in 2021). But then he takes the trust that I gave him, confiding in him with information about my broken personal life, and he berates me, kicking me in the head emotionally for desiring to find a wife, making me feel like a piece of garbage for being divorced. I am not upset with Mr. Redlin for his religious beliefs, but for the abusive way that he poorly handled the entire interaction with me from start to finish! That horrible man has zero people skills, a bad attitude, no walk with God, and shouldn't be a pastor. Jeff Redlin should be managing a McDonald's somewhere, and I'm not kidding folks!

If you talk with Pastor Redlin, he will likely make a bunch of lame excuses about how he has a big church to run, or someone died in the school, or other illegitimate excuses for his abusive behavior, incompetence as a pastor, lack of care and woeful lack of godly compassion for hurting people. I came to Jeff Redlin in kindness with love, only expecting the same in return from the pastor of Campus Church, but instead I receive false accusations, hypocrisy, condemnation, mistreatment, arrogancy and abuse.

Pastor Redlin claimed that someone slandered me to him, sending him my ministry websites and other information. He ASS-U-Me that the slander was true, condemning me for it in his letter's language and tone. Redlin bared false witness against me, falsely accusing me of “finding weaknesses” in preachers. In truth, my ministry exposes wickedness in preachers!!! I expose the damnable heresies of Lordship Salvation, Devil's bibles and wrong repentance (which are all sinfully embraced by the demonic Bob Jones University camp today). Tragically, the Pensacola Christian College camp and Campus Church sinfully bid Godspeed to Bob Jones University and company, making them partakers of their evil deeds (2nd John 1:11).

RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS! The way we treat people matters. ALL LIVES MATTER!!! By God's grace I will continue to take the time to reply to emails, showing people that I care. I DO CARE!!! It takes a lot of time, effort and patience to reply to emails (for me especially because of my chronic bodily pain, tension and burning from my neck injury many years ago).People look up to pastors. I actually looked up to Pastor Redlin when I first came to Campus Church, even after he dissed me and didn't care that I was sleeping in Walmart's parking lot. I so much wanted to be friends with him, but that man is a first-class bully, who doesn't want to be friends with a truth-teller like me. He'd rather be buddies with apostates and damnable heretics in the Bob Jones crowd! SHAME on Pastor Jeff Redlin. SHAME on PCC for hiring him and putting up with his abuse of people. Your former pastor was much better from all that I've heard.

Again dear reader, we make friends or enemies one person at a time. Jeff Redlin made me his enemy, by his own abusive words, mistreatment and haughty arrogant spirit toward me as a hurting divorced me who just needed some love. God is my witness, that I had to ask Pastor Redlin umpteen times in July of 2021 if I was “loved and welcomed as a divorced man at Campus Church, before he would give me an answer. That is pathetic!!! And when he did finally climb down off his haughty throne to reply to a nobody like me, 10 days later, he berated me and threw the slander in my face that he read on the internet. That is an ungodly man, a wicked incompetent pastor, and no friend of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We make friends or enemies one person at a time. The big size of Redlin's church is not the problem, it is the small size of his heart! A student dying in June of 2021 at PCC is not the problem, it is that Jeff Redlin doesn't care. He could have just as easily replied to me with kind words rather than inflammatory words. THE TRUTH is that Mr. Redlin is the problem!!! Something is very wrong with his heart. Listen, you can tell what kind of character that a man has by the way he treats animals, poor people, divorced people, nobodies and those who can do nothing for him. Think about that. I am an underdog. I am a nobody. I'm just a broken and redeemed sinner saved by God's grace.

Pastor Jeff Redlin, in sharp contrast, is a richy-rich snob, a haughty and high-minded socialite, a prude, a religious hypocrite and someone who know nothing about the love of God. Jesus said to whom much is forgiven, the same loveth much. Luke 7:47, “Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.” I have been forgiven of much, so I love much.

God deliver us from religious snobs like Jeff Redlin, who sinfully look down their Pharisaical noses upon nobody sinners like me. Jeff Redlin needs to be humbled, and only God can do that. SHAME on Pensacola Christian College for shunning single divorced people who desire to remarry. PCC are out of touch with the Bible and reality. I don't blame Samantha Field for being angry at PCC. Samantha was treated like garbage, just like Redlin mistreated me. It matters how we treat people!

It matters, because we make friends or enemies one person at a time. This is THE GOLDEN RULE. Matthew 7:12, “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. I treated Jeff Redlin kindly with respect and love, the way I want to be treated; but he abused me, disrespecting my person and my 20-year ministry which I've worked so hard on since 2002. Pastor Redlin is a fool to criticize my ministry for Christ, not having even a single word of praise for my labors. That shows his sinful bias and hypocrisy toward a fellow brother in Christ. Jeff has no right to cast me aside. Romans 14:10, “But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.”

Ungodly Men Crept In Unawares

Jude 1:4, “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

For most of my Christian life I never quoted the following passages together, I saw them as separate passages. But in recent years it occurred to me that Matthew 7:13-15 and Matthew 7:21-23 are absolutely connected. This whole passage should be interpreted together as one:
Matthew 7:13-23 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
The dear Savior warned us about false prophets, dangerous wolves who come to us in unsuspecting sheep's clothing, who can be known by their fruits. This passage is very often misunderstood. Different people have different ideas of what is meant by “fruit.” It is abundantly clear to me that the only logical conclusion of the meaning of “fruit” here must be BELIEVING ON JESUS and nothing else. That is what the blessed Savior said in verse 21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. We find the will of the Father in John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” The “fruit” which Jesus spoke of is their doctrine.

Further evidence of what I say is found in 1st John 4:1, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. The only way that we can try (or test) the spirits is with the inspired written Word of God. Everything that man produces (books, sermons, music, art, movies, blogs, et cetera) has a spirit underlying it. We are commanded by God to weigh everything against the Holy Scriptures, and to bring every thought into submission to Christ (2nd Corinthians 10:5-6).

By the way, the reason why I always use the word “inspired” when mentioning the King James Bible is simply because there are many preachers today who deny that we have a perfect inspired Bible. For example: The entire Bob Jones University crowd deny that we have an inspired Bible today. Sadly, even my own Hyles-Anderson College camp deny (since 2008) that we have an inspired Bible today. Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) believed and taught that the King James Bible is inspired!!! You can hear Brother Hyles say this for himself in this wonderful sermon called: 'The Real Battle.'

The inspired King James Bible says in Jude 1:4, “For there are certain men crept in unawares ...ungodly men ...denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” At first glance this verse would seem to exclude Roman Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, Church of Church, Mormons, proponents of Lordship Salvation and other cults; however, by perverting the grace of God they are essentially denying Jesus Christ. That is why in Matthew 7:22-23 we find Christ denying a group of false prophets. They attempted to defend themselves. They boasted of having done “many wonderful works.” They did these works for Jesus! They boasted of having prophesied in thy name. That is, they preached everywhere they went in the precious name of Jesus.

But the Word of God calls them ungodly. Jude 1:4, “For there are certain men crept in unawares ...ungodly men ...denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” By embellishing the Gospel, adding requirements that God does not require, they denied the Lord Jesus Christ. Only those who wholly trust the Lamb of God are saved. Partial faith in Christ plus turning away from your sins cannot produce the new birth. That is a completely different mindset than BELIEVING ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (Acts 16:30-31).

While attending the ungodly Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, I heard their senior pastor, Marty Herron, say (and I quote): “It is not enough to admit that you are a sinner, you must forsake a lifestyle of sin to go to Heaven.” That is putting people under the law! To require someone to turn away from sinful behavior to be saved is to put them under the law of God. What saith the Scripture? Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

The purpose of God's law (i.e., the Ten Commandments) is to give mankind THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN. The apostle Paul said in Romans 7:13 that “sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.” God's Old Testament law (all the “Thou shalt not” commandments) remove any argument or controversy about the guilt and awfulness of sin. We know that murder is a sin. We know that adultery is a sin. We know that covetousness is a sin. We know that bearing false witness is a sin. We know that bowing down or worshipping graven images is a sin. We KNOW this because the Bible teaches that these horrible actions are sinful. The Bible gives us these helpful words:
Galatians 3:24-26, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
The preceding Scripture passage explains everything perfectly! The law is a school teacher, which shows us that we are guilty sinners, incapable of saving ourselves. The law then brings us to Christ to be saved by grace through faith. I hope you can now see what is so horribly wrong about Lordship Salvation, and the false teaching that a person must turn away from sinful behavior to get to Heaven.

Lordship Salvation is the false doctrine that says faith is not enough to be saved; but in addition, you must surrender your entire personality to Christ as Lord of your life, and be willing to follow and obey Him for the rest of your life. This heresy is usually combined with the turn away from your sin” heresy to be saved, but not always. That is why I make a distinction between the two falsehoods. In his excellent book titled: “Enemies Of Soulwinning,” Pastor Jack Hyles exposes both of these heresies separately, and also the Devil's counterfeit bibles:
I am horrified that I'd say at least 95% of all Baptist churches today have been infected with these deadly falsehoods. It is so sad. The problem is our sinful human bad habits and nature. People naturally go by what they hear. That is why the Bible commands us as God's children not to listen to gossip, not to repeat gossip and not to allow gossip to cause us to hurt other people. In the book of Proverbs we find the word “tongue” mentioned 19 times. Proverbs 15:2, “The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.” King Solomon said much about the dangers of gossip, destroying friendships with gossip, destroying one's neighbour with gossip, and of being a wicked talebearer!

Sadly, Pastor Jeff Redlin of Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College read some wicked slander about me on the internet in 2021 and sinfully assumed it was true. That ungodly hypocrite ought to be fired as their pastor! Jeff Redlin is a wicked man who woefully lacks God's compassion for hurting people. With his unkind and cruel words, Pastor Redlin compelled me to leave Campus Church. No man who mistreats hurting people has any business being a pastor of a church. Campus Church is a disgrace to the cause of Jesus Christ! It is my humble prayer and hope that God will humble Jeff Redlin, remove him as the pastor of Campus Church, and cause him to suffer greatly that he would be in my shoes so he would understand. That wicked man is proud, arrogant and thinks he is better than others. I speak that to the utter shame of Pensacola Christian College for tolerating his abuse. Jeff Redlin is an ungodly man crept in unawares!

I heard a local Baptist pastor recently praising Billy Graham (1918-2018), saying that Mr. Graham led millions of people to Jesus Christ. That is simply untrue! Billy Graham corrupted the Word of God and cast stumbling blocks before the people, by not keeping sanctification separate from justification. According to Mr. Graham, faith was not enough to go to Heaven. In addition, Graham taught that a person must “count the cost and pay the price of turning away from their sinful behavior, and follow Christ faithfully. That is NOT the Gospel of free grace, not even in the ballpark!

Dear reader, I feel like the lone ranger nowadays! All I see are wicked ungodly pastors (e.g., Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Sean Quinlan, John MacArthur, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, Jeff Redlin, Timothy Zacharias, et cetera) who don't care about THE TRUTH! I have personally warned many of these men, but they turned a deaf ear to THE TRUTH. Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” I am preaching a free grace Gospel. Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Chuck Phelps, Steve Pettit are NOT preaching the Gospel, they are sinfully preaching the Devil's LIE of Lordship Salvation and wrong repentance! Those crooked men do not walk straight!!! They are ungodly men crept in unawares! All of the aforementioned shameful names are affiliated with Bob Jones University (BJU).

Tragically, the Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp wickedly bid Godspeed to BJU. In July of 2021 Pastor Jeff Redlin of Campus Church sinfully rebuked me for preaching against the Bob Jones crowd. I was disgusted and still am at Mr. Redlin, for being partaker of their evil deeds at BJU. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. Jeff Redlin bared false witness against me in the summer of 2021 at Campus Church, wrongly accusing me of “finding weaknesses in the Bob Jones crowd. In truth, I am faithfully exposing them for preaching another gospel, REBUKING THEM SHARPLY as Titus 1:9-14 commands, that they might be sound in the faith. Sadly, neither the BJU or PCC camp are listening, they just keep hating and ostracizing me for TELLING THE TRUTH! God is on my side because I am on His side (Romans 3:4).

As I mentioned earlier, the problem is our sinful human nature. People (including preachers) tend to avoid any conflict, controversy or anything unpleasant. That is why shameful PCC pastor pastor, Sean Quinlan, scolded me for my zeal against the Devil's corrupt modern perversions of God's Word. Pastor Quinlan (in 2018 at the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam) sinfully and shamefully called me “obsessed over the Bible. What an ungodly thing to say! Psalms 119:139-140, “My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.Something is very WRONG with a pastor who rebukes someone for their zeal over God's Word. Sean Quinlan is an ungodly man crept in unawares. Pastor Quinlan quit in 2018 and went back to work at PCC in Florida. Sadly, he hurt a bunch of people at the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam, who are still struggling to this day because of his foolish lack of good sense. Jeff Redlin is no better, sinfully bidding Godspeed to the infidel BJU camp. SHAME on PCC and their ungodly pastors crept in unawares. Jeff Redlin must go! Tim Zacharias must go! Sean Quinan must go! Birds of a feather flock together!!! These are wicked parasites, mooching off of Christendom for their own belly's sake (Romans 16:17-18).

True evil lies in willful ignorance as much as deliberate intention. The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference, the kind of hateful indifference found plaguing the Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp today. I came to Campus Church in July of 2021 with a spirit of love, compassion and a desire to be a blessing to PCC and Campus Church any way that I could. God knows that I speak THE TRUTH! But that ungodly person Pastor Jeff Redlin was cold, calloused, insulting, rude, injurious, uncaring and mean. When I told him that I was divorced and that after 16 years I hoped to find a wife, he shamefully scolded me for coming to church to find a wife. I never told him this was the only reason I came to church. I couldn't believe how childish and immature he is, in charge of a megachurch with over 10,000 members. So sad!

Then, right in front of his wife, Redlin told me that if I did find a woman to marry, he wouldn't perform the wedding. This is a horrible pastor who had only known me for two weeks of his entire life! Who talks to strangers like that? Pastor Redlin woefully lacks compassion for people! He certainly has zero people skills. Then, after finding my website ministry (which I didn't tell him about), he wrongfully accused me of finding weaknesses in preachers. I kindly rebuked him back, for sinfully bidding Godspeed to the Lordship Salvation, Calvinism and Devil's bibles promoted by the Bob Jones University camp today! Somebody needs to preach with the authority of God's Word against ungodly men crept in unawares!!!

It is uncaring and foolish pastors like Jeff Redlin and Sean Quinlan, who both rebuked me for contending for the Christian faith, why America is going to Hell in a wheelbarrow today!!! These are ungodly men crept in unawares, partaker of the evil deeds of the Bob Jones cult who deny salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ. As I have showed you (read here again for yourself), Bob Jones University today requires that you turn away from your sinning to be saved.
With regard to the doctrine of Soteriology:

We believe Scripture teaches that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone (Eph. 2:4–10; Rom. 3:21–26; Titus 3:5) and apart from any human work of righteousness (Phil. 3:9). God offers this salvation freely to all men who are willing to repent and turn from their sins (Acts 3:19, 17:30) and place their full faith and trust in the atonement Christ made by His finished work on the Cross (Luke 24:46–48, Heb. 9:11–15, 10:10–14). [emphasis added]

Not one verse in the inspired King James Bible teaches to repent “of your sins” to be saved. When the thief on the cross wanted to be saved, He simply asked Jesus to “remember me” (Luke 23:42). It was his faith in Jesus that saved him, nothing more. When the Roman jailor asked Paul and Silas how to be saved, they simply told him to: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 16:30-31). They didn't require the man to turn away from his sins. They didn't require the jailor to surrender all to Christ as “Lord” and faithfully follow Him from now on. Paul and Silas didn't tell the man to “count the cost and pay the price.” Jesus paid the price in full with His precious blood, so we don't need to pay for anything.

Here is Evangelist Billy Graham's damnable counterfeit plan of salvation:

How To Be Sure You're Saved

First, you must recognize your need.

Second, you must understand the cross.

Third, you must count the cost.

He also said, “Which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost? … So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple” (Luke 14:28, 33).

Many people come to Christ without first counting the cost. The cost includes repentance, the forsaking of sin, and a continual, daily, open acknowledgment of Christ in your life.

Fourth, you must take a definite step.

One day at Stanford University, a student of a non-Christian faith came to me and said he was convinced that Jesus is the Son of God but said he couldn’t confess Him publicly. He said that back in his own country the cost socially would be too great.

I had to tell him that the Bible says: “Whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32-33).

Like the rich young ruler of old, the student went away sad. He had counted the cost and was not able to pay the price of open acknowledgment of Jesus Christ as his Savior.

We ask people to make a public confession of Christ in our meetings because Christ demanded a definite commitment. Christ had reasons for demanding that people openly follow Him. He knew that an unwitnessed vow is no vow at all. Until you have surrendered to Christ by a definite act of your will, you are not a Christian. [emphasis added]

Let me repeat what Billy Graham heretically said:

The cost includes repentance, the forsaking of sin, and a continual, daily, open acknowledgment of Christ in your life.” [emphasis added]

Dear friend, there is NO COST to you or me in God's simple plan of salvation. Jesus paid for OUR SINS with His blood. What saith the Scripture? 1st Peter 1:18-19, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:” Dear reader, when any preacher like Billy Graham comes along, preaching that getting saved to go to Heaven will COST YOU SOMETHING, he is preaching another gospel. The Bible says Christ made the full payment for our sins, by His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary.

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?

The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

We must stay true to the simplicity of the Gospel!! Repentance regarding salvation is a change of mind from unbelief to belief!!! We must earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3).
