Many Pastors Are Deceived But Think All Is Okay

Revelation 3:15-18, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Our text from Revelation 3:15-18 is a well known Scripture passage about the lukewarm Laodicean church. This was a deceived church! This is Jesus Himself speaking to the Apostle John, who was exiled on the isle of Patmos at the time of this writing in AD 96. Revelation 1:18, “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” That verse is speaking about Jesus! Jesus told John that the Laodicean church claimed to be prospering, to be blessed of God so that they had need of nothing; when in reality they were wretched, naked and blind the Bible says. Jesus said He spews them out of His mouth, “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:” (Revelation 3:17).

Jesus is talking about Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College (PCC). The PCC camp refuse to get their hands dirty for God (2nd Timothy 3:12). PCC refuses to fight the good fight of faith (1st Timothy 6:12). PCC refuses to earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3). They meet three times a week at Campus Church, singing a bunch of religious songs, playing church as if it were a game, going through all the external motions. PCC is a religious cult, where the system always comes first and individual people don't matter.

When I attended Campus Church in 2021 for a few months, I didn't feel any Holy Spirit power. There was no soulwinning (they won't even use the term “soulwinning”). The weakly preaching from the church pulpit is formal, dry, dead and lacks passion. There was no love, compassion or genuine concern for me as a hurting human being. I poured out my heart to Pastor Jeff Redlin, as sincerely as any man could; but he harshly responded with cold-hearted callousness, woeful indifference, and he even rebuked me for daring to say that I hoped to remarry after being alone for the past 15 years (my former wife divorced me in 2006).

Kindly said, Pastor Jeff Redlin is an incompetent minister, the academic type, a rich yuppie (he gets paid an outrageous 6-digit salary as senior pastor). Jeff Redlin is not qualified in my humble opinion to be in the clergy. Yet he is influencing thousands of PCC students in a captive audience (that he didn't build). When I attended Campus Church, I saw dozens of young people playing with their mobile phones and gadgets during the church service, instead of listening to Pastor Redlin's dry, boring and spiritually lifeless sermonettes.

Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College

I have been watching a very interesting series of documentaries on YouTube called: 'Mayday,' about plane crashes and the revealing investigations that follow. In the preceding video, the pilot takes off from the wrong runway, killing half of the passengers on the plane. The plane was headed from Taiwan to Los Angeles, fueled to the max with about 100,000 gallons of fuel. So when the plane crashed into some ground equipment on the wrong runway, the plane burst into flames. In the documentary, the co-pilot told the pilot that their glideslope (technology to help the pilot know where the runway is) meter was showing wrong. Yet the pilot ignored that warning. Why? In human psychology it is called “Confirmation Bias” (or “Myside Bias) ...
What is 'Confirmation Bias' Psychology?
Before you can understand what confirmation bias psychology is, you have to know what the word bias means. The Oxford Dictionary defines bias as prejudice or inclination against or in favor of one person, a group, an idea, or a subject. For example, you may find that you have a bias against younger people when hiring for a job opening.

Bias is in all of us, whether we are conscious of it or not. Nobody can be completely unbiased because we all have feelings or opinions driving our biases. Unconscious bias is an instant feeling or thought you have about things, people, and subjects that you cannot control. Confirmation bias (also known as myside bias) is a type of cognitive bias that backs up your personal beliefs or feelings about things. It is the mind's way of ignoring everything that does not support our ideas or views.

Confirmation Bias In Psychology

In social psychology, confirmation bias (or myside bias) is defined as an inability to see your circumstances objectively. While having a natural tendency to be unconsciously biased is normal, those who decide to believe something because they want it to be true are using myside bias.

According to the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, confirmation bias posits that people tend to seek information and evidence that supports their existing beliefs.

This is like wishful thinking times 100 as the individual only sees things that they want to see, as they will search for information that supports their existing beliefs while disconfirming evidence that goes against their beliefs or desires.

Confirmation bias works as an effective way for individuals to process information and minimize cognitive dissonance that occurs with conflicting views and ideas.

And that is exactly why Pastors' Jeff Redlin and Timothy Zacharias of PCC's Campus Church refused to listened to THE TRUTH, when I gave it to them in 2021. Pastor Redlin told me in an email that the pastors of Campus Church as a group found fault with my website ministry. They all shamefully and wrongly accused me of “finding weaknesses in preachers,” when in reality I am doing what they should be doing—“that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3). The Bible says to “REBUKE THEM SHARPLY” who corrupt the simplicity of the Gospel (Titus 1:9-14).

I do not find weakness in preachers; but rather, I preach against the WICKEDNESS in pastors! Preaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation is not a weakness, it is wickedness according to Galatians 1:6-9! Using, selling and promoting Satan's corruptible seed (i.e., the modern perverted Bible revisions) is not a weakness, it is wickedness according to Proverbs 30:5-6! Bidding Godspeed to Pastor John MacArthur is not a weakness in pastors, it is wickedness according to 2nd John 1:11.

I was the only one who was doing the right thing at PCC (when I attended there in 2021), but they are evildoers according to 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Pastor Jeff Redlin might as well preach the Devil's fraud of Lordship Salvation, because by sinfully bidding Godspeed to the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, he is a partaker of their evil deeds. Harvest Baptist Church has sinfully tried to hide their doctrinal beliefs, by removing their Statement of Faith from their church's website; but the fact that Harvest still wholeheartedly promotes Bob Jones University (BJU), and Dr. Steve Pettit's (BJU president since 2014) Calvinist preaching indicts them. The sad truth is that making money is the most important thing to BJU, PCC and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. So they all ignore what each other preaches, looking the other way, pretending like it is not their business what each other does and teaches. But that is apostasy!!! RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! Look what evil Steve Pettit preaches at BJU to thousands of staff and students.

The churches of Galatia counted the Apostle Paul (who started those churches years earlier), as their “enemy” for telling “THE TRUTH” (Galatians 4:15-17). I am not the bad guy here, I am the HERO according to God's Word. I am trying to rescue the perishing, by exposing all the wolves in sheep's clothing (e.g., Marty Herron, John MacArthur, Gary Walton, Chuck Phelps, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, Steve Pettit, Sam Horn, John Hagee, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, John Piper, Chip Ingram, William Lane Craig, J.D. Greear, Adrian Rogers, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Charles Stanley, Beth Moore, Pat Robertson, the Catholic Pope, Warren Jeffs, Ellen G. White, Doug Batchelor, et cetera).

In “Confirmation Bias” (or “Myside Bias”), someone  has already made up their mind about someone or something, so that they put up a psychological defense in their mind, as you are trying to show them THE TRUTH in reality. That is what happened to the lukewarm church at Laodicea. In Revelation 3:17, “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:” What a disturbing paradox! This is just like so many churches today, who have tons of money and lots of members, thinking that God is blessing them greatly; but in reality they are spiritually naked, wretched and blind to their woeful horrible condition!!! That is Pensacola Christian College and their Campus Church!

That is NOT the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. It is much worse concerning Harvest and their cult headquarters at Bob Jones University (BJU), because they are NOT saved at all. This is because the BJU camp trust in a counterfeit plan of salvation (aka, Lordship Salvation - Matthew 7:21-23). They have never been born-again into God's Kingdom, which is by faith alone in Jesus as the Christ, the only begotten Son of God; who died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and resurrected three days later (John 6:40; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

In social psychology, confirmation bias (or myside bias) is defined as an inability to see your circumstances objectively (i.e., you are under the mental power of a delusion). While having a natural tendency to be unconsciously biased is normal, those who decide to believe something because they want it to be true are using myside bias. That is why the 747 pilot in Taiwan took off on the wrong runway with 179 passengers and killed 83 of them!!! Everyone who was sitting in the middle of the plane, over the wing where all the fuel is stored, were burned alive.

The co-pilot warned the captain that something was not right (the glideslope was showing the plane was not where it was supposed to be), but the captain had Confirmation Bias (i.e., Myside Bias). That is, he was so sure in his OWN MIND that the plane was going down the correct runway, that he ignored contrary information from the co-pilot. Likewise, even though I have been diligently warning the Bob Jones University camp since 2014, that they are trusting in a wrong plan of salvation, they have totally ignored me due to their own Confirmation Bias. They are so sure that they are right, that nothing I say from the Bible has been taken seriously by them. The BJU crowd are taxing down the wrong runway, trusting in a counterfeit gospel that cannot produce the new birth, headed for imminent fiery destruction in Hell!!! Sadly, nobody is listening.

I was thinking about the Laodicean church in Revelation 3:15-18 today, and how it so perfectly illustrates Confirmation Bias. The lukewarm Campus Church at PCC, their college and alumni, all emphasis culture over contending for the faith. They dress fancy at PCC. They sing their proper music in church. They meet in extravagant multi-million dollar buildings. They have a snobby type of elite leadership in the PCC camp. They have hundreds of millions of dollars in real estate assets. They take in tens of millions of dollars. They are blinded by their worldly success. They fail to see that they are spiritually naked, wretched and blind to their woeful condition.

The Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp are lukewarm, which Jesus said He vomits out of His mouth. They have no zeal to contend against false doctrine. They don't hate every false way. They just don't care about right doctrine. What they do care about is making more money! They do care about protecting the cult at all costs. Sadly, they don't care about individual people, like me. I literally pleaded to come back to Campus Church in 2022, but PCC leaders and the pastors of Campus Church all cruelly refused. That is hatred.

All across America PCC graduates are playing church, but they refuse to fight the good fight of faith. The Devil is in the Bible-publishing business! Since 1881, when Anglican infidel ministers Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort produced their corrupt Greek translation of the New Testament, literally HUNDREDS of Bible revisions have been published. HUNDREDS!!! Folks, God only authored ONE BOOK!!! Where is PCC in the battle over the Word of God? They are nowhere to be found. PCC calls truth-tellers like me, soldiers for Christ who actually fight the good fight of faith, “radical.” I may be radical preacher, but Pastor Jeff Redlin is a deadbeat!

The Laodicean church spoke highly of themselves, just like the PCC camp does, errantly thinking that they were prospering and in need of nothing (just like Campus Church). But Jesus Himself said that in reality they were wretched, naked and blind. THAT IS CAMPUS CHURCH AND PCC!

I heard a great sermon yesterday by Pastor Curtis Hutson, in which he makes this statement:
“Evangelicalism and fundamentalism is not the same! When you rename it and call it: 'Evangelical Fundamentalism,' leave me out of it, you've changed it then. The thing that concerns me now, is so many young preacher boys who go off to college and don't even have a good class on Contemporary Theology. Because some preachers get up and push neo-evangelicalism and fundamentalism in the same expression, and try to make it one and the same, because they don't understand it. A lot of young preachers think it is the same. THERE'S A BIG, BIG, DIFFERENCE! Old evangelicalism based on the theology of fundamentalism was supplanted by neo-evangelicalism; based on the theology of infiltration rather than separation as the Bible clearly declared we ought to do.” —Pastor Curtis Hutson, “Things That Are Different Are Not The Same
Dr. Hutson is so right. PCC shamefully bids Godspeed to the Calvinist Bob Jones University (BJU) camp. Look at this demonic garbage that Dr. Steve Pettit (president of BJU since 2014) is preaching.

That is NOT the free grace Gospel. The shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is in bed with BJU, because they are their graduates. It is tragic and apostasy that the PCC camp refuses to take a Biblical stand against the BJU camp and expose them, as I am faithfully doing. Pastor Redlin shamefully falsely accused me in July of 2021 of "finding weaknesses in preachers," when I reality (as Jesus showed John in Revelation 3:15-18), I am HOT for God, but PCC is LUKEWARM, and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam and BJU aren't even COLD, they aren't born-again believers at all!!! They are in the Lordship Salvation cult of Dr. John MacArthur, their hero whom they all idolize. SHAME on PCC leadership! SHAME on Campus Church's spoiled and indifferent pastors!

Y'all just keep playing church three times a week, and singing your insincere songs, puffed up in your Laodicean pride and blindness, while the BJU crowd continue to damn souls to Hell with your blessing. God is on my side (Romans 3:4). The pastors of Campus Church don't care about RIGHT DOCTRINE or REBUKING FALSE PROPHETS, but I DO CARE, and GOD CARES. I seem to be the only one who cares about doing the right thing regarding PCC. Why doesn't PCC contend for the Christian faith? Why do you all commit spiritual adultery with the accursed BJU camp and their false gospel and false bibles (Galatians 1:6-9)? 

Thank you for reading.
