The Hateful, Unforgiving Spirit Of Pastor Jeff Redlin, Campus Church And Pensacola Christian College

Ephesians 4:30-32, “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.”

Matthew 6:15, “But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.“

I need to explain some history first, so you will understand. I moved from the island of Guam (where I had lived for 17 years) in July of 2021 to Pensacola, Florida. While on Guam, I attended the Harvest Baptist Church for the year of 2013-2014. For the first few months I was numb from my broken life and inexplicable emotional trauma in my life after my former wife divorced me in 2006, and the mayhem that followed in the years afterward. But as Samson's hair began to grow and his strength return, I began to regain my courage as a preacher at Harvest Baptist Church. 
I learned firsthand at Harvest that the Bob Jones University cult there preach the Devil's lies of Lordship Salvation, teach a false meaning of repentance and use the Devil's corrupt bibles. 

On one particular Sunday, Harvest's senior pastor Marty Herron gave an invitation at the end of his sermon, saying verbatim: “It is not enough to admit that you are a sinner to get to Heaven, you must also turn away from a lifestyle of sinning.” I was sickened in my soul to hear such heresy being taught to hundreds of people present in church that Sunday morning. I went home and literally cried many tears, asking God if I should go back to Harvest or not, since they were a cult. I felt that God wanted me to try to help them, so I did. I took hundreds of dollars of my own money and bought hardcopies of a few books (authored by faithful men of God) and gave them to the pastors. Those books were:
The response from Harvest's wicked pastors were to scold me officially in the church office, which compelled me to leave their theological cult. But I was so lonely in the years to follow, having lost my church family. I missed them all so much, and all the friends I had made, and the woman I had fallen in love with and wanted to marry. I begged three times in 2017 if Harvest's pastors (Marty Herron, Joe Hansen and Jared Baldwin) would please forgive me, and just allow me to attend their church. I gave them my solemn promise that I would remove all my criticisms against their church from social media, to the best of my human ability, and regardless of what happened in the future I would never criticize them or Harvest again on social media. They unanimously cold-heartedly refused. Marty Herron in particular, since he was the senior pastor and ringleader of their cult, adamantly refused, telling me verbatim to “Go elsewhere.” I was devastated emotionally, again, feeling their hatred and rejection.

The Holy Spirit comforted me with this Old Testament Bible passage, reminding me that my great Savior was also despised and rejected of men for telling THE TRUTH:
Isaiah 53:3, “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
I am guilty of one thing: TELLING THE TRUTH!!!

In hindsight it is obvious that I never should have tried to go back to that cesspool of iniquity at the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. After my fallout with Harvest's ungodly pastors, some of my friends at the church (Doug and Karen Abels, Dave and Amy Morgan, my neighbours Carl and Peggy and their four children) also left the church. Harvest was a sinking ship!!! For seven lonely years (from late 2014 to 2021) I had no church family because of Marty Herron's wickedness, for which I plead with God to hold him fully accountable.

In July of 2021 I moved away from Guam, broken in soul and body, frustrated and tired. When I arrived in Pensacola on July 2nd, I chose to attend Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College (PCC), not realizing what I was getting into. I learned very quickly that PCC is in league, spiritually fornicating with Harvest Baptist Church on Guam and Bob Jones University (BJU). I was again sickened.

If you search on Google for “Harvest Baptist Church, KHMG radio,” you'll see that Jeff Redlin's name appears on Harvest's church website. Harvest plays Redlin's sermons on their radio station. In 2014, I had prayed together at Harvest with the man who operated the KHMG radio station on Guam at the time (which is broadcast throughout Micronesia, corrupting the islands). When I started attending Campus Church in 2021, I met that same man, who had moved back to the United States, and was now running the radio station at PCC. And that man's son is now on Guam, running Harvest's KHMG radio station. What a small world it is! 

The man who runs the radio station at PCC is a good man, and I love him in the Lord, but I am just making a point that PCC and Harvest are connected, which is a problem because of their drastic difference in doctrine (literally preaching two different plans of salvation). I know that Pastor Redlin preaches a free grace Gospel, but BJU does not. I directly asked Pastor Redlin if he believes that repentance and faith are one act, and he confirmed yes, they are. But the BJU camp views repentance as a separate act from faith, in which you must turn away from your sinful ways or else your faith is said to be false. Dr. Redlin is correct, BJU is wrong.


Pensacola Christian College Wickedly Bids Godspeed To Unsaved Bob Jones University Calvinists

My point ladies and gentlemen is that PCC is in bed with Harvest Baptist Church (which is a cesspool of BJU and PCC graduates). Marty Herron quit as the longtime senior pastor of Harvest in 2018, escaping on a golden parachute, now destroying young people's lives as the vice president of Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary in Ankeny, Iowa. That college has a devil working for them! They are all buddies (the PCC and BJU camps), milking the money-tree together, joined at the hip as spiritually deformed conjoined twins.


After a couple weeks of attending Campus Church, one of my enemies made sure to slander me to Campus Church. I couldn't figure out why Pastor Redlin had ignored my kind emails to him for 10 days. I found out later that he and the other pastors of Campus Church, became offended when they discovered my website ministry. In his own cruel words, Jeff Redlin falsely accused me of “finding weaknesses in preachers, when in reality I am preaching against WICKEDNESS in preachers!!!

What the former shameful pastor of Harvest (Marty Herron) preaches (Lordship Salvation and giving up your sinful behavior to be saved) is a false gospel. It is not a weakness, but gross theological incompetence and demonic wickedness!!! Marty Herron is an infidel, not a born-again believer. You cannot get saved by partial faith in Christ plus trying to keep the law (Romans 3:19-20). You don't have to give up your willful sinning to be saved (Romans 6:1). Correct Bible doctrine teaches that God saves you by faith alone (Romans 4:5), and then He indwells you with His Holy Spirit, who convicts and works to change your life (1st Peter 2:2; 2nd Peter 3:18; Romans 12:1-2). Growing in grace (sanctification) has nothing to do with getting saved (the legal matter of justification). I think Pilgrim's Progress author John Bunyan said it best:
“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)
That beautiful quote (which is 100% Biblical) refutes the false idea that a person must repent “of your sin” to be saved, or the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation which says that more than faith is necessary to be born-again. All of these foolish unsaved preachers today (e.g., Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, John MacArthur, Adrian Rogers, R.C. Sproul, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Sam Horn, Chip Ingram and Chuck Phelps), who are teaching that you must forsake sinful behavior to receive God's free gift of eternal life, are corrupting THE TRUTH of the Gospel. Jesus Christ came into the world to die on the cross to pay for our sins, not demand that we try to clean up our lives to do our part to be saved.

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.

What PCC is doing is wicked, by sinfully bidding Godspeed to the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam and Bob Jones University. Harvest has deceitfully tried to hide what they believe, by removing their Statement of Faith from their website; however, one need only listen to their KHMG 88.1 FM radio station to hear Dr. Steve Pettit (executive president of Bob Jones University and an unsaved heretic) preaching Lordship Salvation (i.e., Calvinism). Harvest is awash with dozens of corrupt modern Bible versions. Their new pastor, Gary Walton, is as incompetent and wicked as his predecessor, still upholding the cult at BJU and fully supporting Steve Pettit's damnable counterfeit plan of salvation. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

I have mixed feeling in my heart about Pensacola Christian College. They are mostly correct on the Gospel, but have a false teaching on repentance. According to their official Foundation's Class, and I quote verbatim: “Repentance is a change of mind resulting in a change of behavior.” This is dangerous doctrine, because it gives the false impression that if your behavior hasn't change, you didn't really get saved (and that's along the same damnable doctrine being preaching by the Bob Jones crowd today, just not as drastic). BJU requires that you turn away from your intentional sinning to be saved, which is a false gospel. PCC falsely teaches that if you have genuinely repented at the time of salvation, your behavior will change afterwards. Either way, works are being associated with God's free gift of eternal life.

It is so sad what is happening to today's churches, which is the direct result of being trained by incompetent Bible colleges. God knows that I love everybody at Campus Church and PCC, and I miss them much. I went through the same heartache with the corrupt Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. And now, here again, I am going through the same ordeal with Pensacola Christian College and their church family. Honestly, I think they should rename their “Campus Church” to “Campus Chapel,” because that is really what it is, a place for their thousands of PCC students to meet three times a week. No true New Testament “church” would refuse to permit a broken-hearted man (me), who has poured out my heart pleading to come back to church. It just proves that everything I have preached against them on social media is true, that they are a bunch of academic types who woefully lack God's compassion for people.


PCC Camp Refuses To Reconcile With Me, Cannot Attend Campus Church

Having said all that, in frustration I left Campus Church in September of 2021. I took my opinions to social media, openly and harshly criticizing Pastor Jeff Redlin and his sidekick associate Timothy Zacharias. I exposed Campus Church and Pensacola Christian College, for their illicit relationship with BJU and the corrupt Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. The PCC camp is really upset with me, as you can imagine.

I am torn between my lonely personal life, needing a church family to love and be loved; versus my being faithful as a fundamentalist Baptist preacher to stand for THE TRUTH. As most of you know, my former wife divorced me against my will in 2006. I have lived alone ever since, which often causes depression and sadness. I go to sleep alone, I wake up alone. I talk to myself all throughout the day, because I need to talk to someone, and God is always there to listen to me. Being lonely is a type of prison. Yet, what does Marty Herron care, he has a wife? What does Jeff Redlin care, he has a wife? And yet these selfish wicked men berate me as a divorced man, and do everything they can to hinder me from finding a wife. If it weren't for Marty Herron's hatred, false gospel and wicked heart, I would have married the woman I loved at Harvest, who also liked me, but Herron coerced her to diss me (and she did).

When I first started attending Campus Church in July of 2021, I wrote a very sincere email to Pastor Redlin, explaining my pain of soul and body, my loneliness as a divorced man for 15 years, and my hope to find a wife at Campus Church. In his shallow selfishness, cruelty and self-righteous attitude, Pastor Redlin replied by scolding me for coming to church to find a wife. I was cut to the heart! I rebuked him back that he would ASS-U-ME this was the only reason I wanted to attend Campus Church. He put words in my mouth that I never said. I simply shared my heart with him, as a friend, thinking that perhaps since it is such a big church that I might meet someone. I pray to God that Mr. Redlin could know what loneliness feels like, because he has no idea. I know what it means to suffer. I do not hate Pastor Redlin, but he is not right with God, and sadly doesn't want to be either. The guy is getting paid a ridiculous 6-digit exuberant salary, and I mean absolutely nothing to him as a human being. It's just a damn job to him, sadly.

In the last letter sent on July 21, 2022, I provided my email address, my mobile phone number and my mailing address, but I haven't heard anything from anyone at PCC. It is sad. They are in bed spiritually with the Bob Jones University cult, and in so doing have made themselves partakers of their evil deeds (the damnable falsehoods of Lordship Salvation, Devil's bibles and misunderstood repentance). RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! I am the only one who is TELLING THE TRUTH, and taking a faithful Biblical stand against the false plan of salvation being preached today by John MacArthur and Steve Pettit (and by extension the ungodly Harvest Baptist Church on Guam). 

When I attended the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam in 2018 for several months, Sean Quinlan (an incompetent PCC intern pastor), rebuked me harshly when he overheard me tell a church member that: “Bob Jones University promotes corruptible seed” (fake bibles). I initially apologized to him for offending him, but he kept running his big mouth, accusing me of having no class and usurping his authority as the church pastor. The guy freaked out! I added my comment that the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is preaching Calvinism. Quinlan snapped back, saying: “Harvest is our sister church!” Oh my God, “sister church? I was utterly sickened by what he had just uttered out of his potty mouth.

Sadly, Sean Quinlan and the entire PCC camp are committing spiritual adultery with the Bob Jones University camp. In case you missed it, please read the damnable heresy being preached at BJU today!!! (here is a backup article, just in case). Folks, I am not the bad man here!!! I am obeying Titus 1:9-14:
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.”
The deadly theological garbage that Steve Pettit and his followers (Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Chuck Phelps, et cetera) are preaching, turns men away from THE TRUTH. I cannot recommend enough that you please read Michael P. Bowen's beautiful book: “I Never Knew You (free online .pdf version), which is a brilliant defense of the free grace Gospel (hard copies are available on Amazon.com, which make great gifts for loved ones or people you want to share the Gospel with in a discreet manner).

Our churches and Bible colleges are in big trouble today dear reader, because no one is standing anymore against false doctrine. It is for faithfully contending for the faith (Jude 1:3), that the BJU camp at the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, and their butt-buddies in the PCC camp here in Florida, have all despised and rejected me, so that I am not even allowed to attend their weekly church services. Don't anyone dare tell me that America is not going to Hell. Today's pastors have blood-soaked hands!!!

I was feeling bad over the past several about the whole matter, regretting that I burned my bridges to attend Campus Church, by criticizing the PCC camp on social media. I don't regret the truths I have preached, I just regret that I burned my bridge to attend Campus Church, and to fellowship with the handful of friends that I made last summer. So on June 17, 2022 I wrote a sincere letter and mailed it to Pastor Jeff Redlin. He totally ignored me. So one month later I mailed two more, but separate letters, one to all the pastors of Campus Church and one to Pensacola Christian College (PCC). Sadly, they have totally ignored me again.

In the last letter I apologized for offending them. I pleaded for their forgiveness. I made a promise to them all, that if they would simply allow me to attend Campus Church, I would never criticize Campus Church or PCC on social media ever again. And I also offered to do whatever they require to make peace with them, including apologizing in front of Campus Church if they desired. Evidently they do not value me enough as a human being to even reply to my three heartfelt letters sent through the U.S. Postal Service. The ball is in their court. I have done what I can to make peace with the PCC camp, but they refuse. What saith the Scripture? Matthew 6:15, But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Campus Church has some very big wallets in their congregation, but I am a small fish with chump change. I have nothing to offer the PCC camp, except that I need their love and help, but they don't need me. You can tell a man's character by the way he treats those who can do nothing for him. I am a nobody. I'm just a hurting divorced man, with health problems (constant neck pain and burning nerves), a broken heart, who desires to be a part of the church family. I do want to find a Christian woman to marry. If that makes me a horrible sinner for being lonely and desiring a mate, then so be it.

My inspired King James Bible teaches in 1st Corinthians 7:1 that every man needs a wife. The Bible doesn't put conditions on that truth, but PCC does, condemning divorced people, expecting them to survive alone and single for the rest of their days. At PCC they only recognize the perfect will of God, but not the permissive will of God. So unless you are perfect, still married and dot all your i's and cross your t's just right, they reject you! That is a religious cult!!! I am not welcomed at Campus Church, because I have called them out for fornicating spiritually with the hellbound Bob Jones University cult. Look at the demonic trash which Dr. Steve Pettit teaches 2,700 BJU staff and students:
“You can't just speak about getting saved, and you accepted Christ, and then that's it! There is a justification; There is a sanctification; There's ultimately a glorification, and though there are three parts, they are all part of the whole, and you cannot separate them. In order for you to qualify for the award, you have to get into the race, you have to stay in the race, and you have to finish the race. If you want to win, you have to run to the end; and winning in the Christian life is everything, because if you lose—if you don't finish—you lose everything—you lose your SOUL. And so, the Christian race is the life of faith that begins, is run, and is finished when we cross over into Heaven!” [emphasis added] —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 11:34)
That is some dangerous talk when you include the next quote from Dr. Pettit, in which he teaches over 2,700 BJU students that the “AWARD” for running 'The Race' is “Heaven itself”!!!
“We run the race, we cross the finish line, and so what’s the prize? What is the award? Well, there are different viewpoints. Some would have the viewpoint that the awards are crowns in Heaven. But as I read the book of Hebrews and see the whole gist of the book and the flow of the book, I don’t believe its referring to crowns in Heaven. I think it is referring to Heaven itself.” [emphasis added] —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 22:57)
Heaven itself? Oh my! Steve Petit is preaching another gospel. According to Dr. Pettit, you cannot merely put your faith in Jesus as your personal Savior, and then know that you're going to Heaven. Oh no, he says you must then RUN THE RACE for the rest of your life, faithfully so, until the very end, and only then after all is said and done, can you know for certain that you've made it to Heaven. Dear reader, this is the Satanic tommyrot that Jeff Redlin, Campus Church and Pensacola Christian College are bidding Godspeed to today.

This is the balderdash that the cultic Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is steeped in, buried over their heads in the counterfeit gospel of Steve Pettit, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, Marty Herron and Gary Walton. Harvest won't even post their beliefs about salvation anymore on their church website, because they are wickedly attempting to appease both sides (Lordship Salvation versus Free Grace Gospel). Harvest is making lots of money by playing the ecumenical card, straddling the fence instead of choosing sides. 1st Kings 18:21, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions?  if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.  And the people answered him not a word. That is Harvest, cowards! That is PCC, cowards! I have chosen sides with the Free Grace Gospel. I am 100% against the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, and the Devil's lie that you must repent “of your sin” or “turn away from your sin” to receive God's free gift of eternal life. I am 100% against the Devil's modern corrupt Bible revisions, which the entire apostate Bob Jones University crowd use, sell and promote. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

If Pastor Jeff Redlin were an honorable man who fears God, he would humble himself and contact me, and I would welcome him as my Christian brother, and humbly express nothing but respect and appreciation for him, but he doesn't care. PCC stands to lose millions of dollars by offending the BJU camp. The love of money is the root of all evil the Bible warns. Folks, it is our business what other Bible colleges and churches are preaching, because RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS. You're a fool if you think it's not our business!!! All I wanted was to attend Campus Church again, but Jeff Redlin refuses. What does that say about him?

The ironic thing about all this is that I never picked a fight with any of these men, they drew first blood. Like Rambo, who just wanted something to eat, but some king shite cop harassed and drove out of town instead; likewise, I just wanted to attend these churches (Harvest and Campus Church), but they started messing with me, scolding me for TELLING THE TRUTH. They drew first blood. They drew first blood!

God knows that I sincerely love Pastor Redlin with Christ's love, and I would love to be his friend. I wish I could go bike riding with some of the Christian men at PCC. But I feel nothing but contempt from Jeff Redlin. In all truth, he should be commending my website ministry for contending for the faith, instead of criticizing my life's work (as he has done). So he can criticize my work, but I dare not criticize his ministry, or else. Really fair, huh? I am still willing and trying to make peace, but Pastor Redlin doesn't want to. I am writing this blog as a testimony before God and man, that I am trying to make peace with the PCC camp, but they have refused three times already.

I have done what the Bible teaches, I have gone to my Christian brother to seek to be reconciled, but Jeff Redlin has cold-heartedly refused:
Matthew 5:23-24, “Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”
I do have ought against Pastor Redlin now, because he refuses to reconcile. So the Bible teaches from this point on that God will not accept Jeff Redlin's sacrifice or worship, until he first repents (changes his mind) and is willing to reconcile with his brother. My PROMISE still stands, as long as I live in the city of Pensacola, to do my best to remove all my criticisms on social media against Campus Church and PCC, and never criticize the PCC camp again, BUT ONLY IF they'll just allow me to attend Campus Church again, so I can be a part of their church family.

My heart is hurting. I am saddened that I haven't heard back from anyone. I love them all so much at Campus Church and PCC, but they don't care about me. Where is Christ's love? I really could use Pastor Redlin's friendship right now. I know I can be difficult sometimes, but I am not a liar and I will keep my promise, if they will forgive and give me a second chance. I think I have an excellent spirit in this matter. What is wrong with the PCC camp? I challenge you Jeff Redlin, to show forth the great heart of God's love, and forgive me for offending you. I am truly sorry. I do not regret my preaching, I regret having burned my bridges, once again, to attend Campus Church. I am willing to make amends to gain a church family. Let him that hath ears to hear, hear. I love you all with Christ's unconditional love. Humbly.
