The Hatred At Pensacola Christian College
The Way Someone Treats You Reveals Their Heart; The Way You Respond Reveals Yours

Matthew 5:43-46, “Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?”
It is in our carnal nature to respond with hatred to those who hate us. It is natural to dislike people who dislike us, and to like those who do like us. Dear reader, that is so shallow! In our tremendous text passage of Scripture, our dear Savior Himself instructs us to be better than the average bear. Jesus Christ wants us to bless those who curse us, pray for those who despitefully use us, and to love those who hate us.
People Will Hurt UsPeople equal pain! Sadly, life is about people hurting people. You can try to deny that, but it is nevertheless very true. I don't care who you are, you've been hurt by people, likely many times. Sometimes people don't intend to hurt our feelings, but they do anyway. It is our differences as human beings that cause conflicts. What we say in sincerity, may be taken the wrong way by someone else which deeply hurts their soul. I decided years ago that I would 10,000 times rather have people hurt me, than for me to hurt people. I have a clear conscience before God. Do you friend? God sees how we treat other people. I have ought against Pastor Jeff Redlin. I have tried to go and make peace with him, but he refuses. The blood is on his hands alone!
At a Baptist church that I was attending on Guam years ago, there was a woman with a big belly. I sincerely thought she was pregnant. So, I kindly asked her in front of her husband how many months along in her pregnancy she was. She was horribly embarrassed (and so was I) when she replied that she was just bloated. I felt so bad but I couldn't take back my words. I apologized profusely to her. She seemed to take it well, but I know that must have hurt her feelings. Do you see how our sincere misconceptions can lead to problems?I watched a frightening documentary this week on YouTube about why doctors keep making mistakes and killing patients. You'll be shocked! But there is a big difference between honest and sincere mistakes, versus abusive pastors who mistreat and don't care about hurting people. I humbly don't think God wants us to merely walk away and let abuse go; but rather, we should express our negative opinion publicly to warn other people about abusive organizations like Pensacola Christian College (PCC).
Sadly, there is an ongoing abusive authoritarian culture of cultish abuse of people who question PCC's leaders or doctrine. I know because I personally was mistreated by Pastor Jeff Redlin, and also by PCC leaders who refused to even communicate with me in 2022. I have written numerous negative reviews online, dozens of articles and blogs to warn people about PCC's unchristian cult. I have been banned from attending Campus Church at PCC. Instead of having a biblical spirit of restoration at PCC, they have a heathen spirit of kicking people out. There is no love or compassion at PCC, only rules, rules and more rules.
The cult system always comes first at PCC, individual people do not matter. That is so wicked, ungodly and pathetic. If you attend PCC, you will not find loved, but you will be thrown under the bus the second that you make a mistake, question leadership or express your own opinions. That is what happened to me. Jeff Redlin is a religious punk, sad to say. The abusive way that PCC mistreated Samantha Field (who was assaulted on PCC's campus as a student), and the horrible way that they mistreated me, reveals what is in their heart.
All We Can Do Is Pray For Them And Try To ReconcileGod knows that I am still willing to make peace and reconciliation at PCC, but they have refuse again and again, to their own demise. Tyranny is rarely seen except by those who are oppressed by it. God hears the cry of an increasingly growing number of wounded PCC students and Campus Church victims who have been abused, hurt and shunned by their bigoted cult of religious weirdoes. The PCC camp is all about indoctrinating people with religion, but without possessing God's genuine love and compassion as a legitimate church would have. That is because they don't walk in the Holy Spirit. You need to understand that PCC are a bunch of academics who woefully lack God's love and compassion for people, because PCC are NOT church builders! They are a private selective cult. Unless you submit to the cult leaders at PCC, you will immediately be rejected, shunned and blackballed.
I have responded to the abuse at PCC with Bible preaching, love and a sincere willingness and desire to reconcile with the PCC camp, but they refuse. In so doing, they reveal that there is hatred, coldness and selfishness in their hearts at PCC. On the other hand, I am still willing to make peace, which reveals that I have God's love in my heart. You may contact Pastor Jeff Redlin and Campus Church, to ask them why they won't allow David J. Stewart to attend Campus Church. I would appreciate it...They day that they contact me to make peace, I will gladly do what I can to reconcile with PCC. People just want to be loved. PCC refuses to love people. They just want to make money. Sadly, since they have thousands of people at PCC, who are willing to give them money in their carnal state, PCC couldn't care less about changing. As long as carnally-minded people support the carnal PCC camp, nothing will change. When they start losing thousands of students, only then will they search their souls and ask God what is wrong.We see this situation in Revelation 3:15-17 concerning the Laodicean church. That horrible carnal church thought they were prospering and pleasing to God, but Jesus called them naked, wretched, poor and miserable!!! So also is PCC naked, wretched, poor and miserable!!! Unfortunately, they foolishness THINK they are pleasing to the Lord at PCC, while hundreds of victims like me are crying out to God to be avenged. Genesis 19:13, “For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.” PCC still hasn't learned the truth that, He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother! Only a dirty cult refuses to allow a person to come back to church. That is a private cult, not a New Testament church! I cannot warn everyone enough about Pensacola Christian College and their hateful yuppie type leaders.
I admit that I have not always responded in a Christlike way to mistreatment from pastors and fellow believers. I had used some sharp words against Pastor Redlin in some of my articles last year, which I have since edited and removed. I want to please the Lord. There is a fine line between faith and foolishness. God knows that in my heart I love everybody, and desire to get along and be friends with other preachers. Sadly, many preachers are selfish, carnal in their thinking, corrupt in doctrine and don't want to get along. That is so horrible!
I realized years ago that I had grown in the Lord beyond most other preachers, so that they could not reciprocate my love. The Apostle Paul experienced this same frustration with people. 2nd Corinthians 12:15, “And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.” Most pastors simply cannot reciprocate the level of love that I have for them. Unfortunately, PCC took the matter too far by banning me from attending their Campus Church, which is evil to the core. Jeff Redlin is a hateful person who hides behind the façade of religion. He is a devil in the pulpit, masquerading as someone who actually gives a damn, but doesn't. Redlin gets paid a disgusting undeserved 6-digit salary, parasiting off of the churches. Redlin already has the only reward he'll ever get. PCC are not leading people to Christ, they are merely playing church without the power of the Holy Spirit, because they are carnal and indifferent toward truth and people. PCC wickedly bid Godspeed to false prophet Ken Ham, who blatantly preaches another gospel of partial faith in Christ plus turning away from your evil ways to get to Heaven.
What a lot of people do is that when someone hurts their feelings, time and time again, they withdraw socially into their shell like a turtle. Words can hurt more than bullets, leaving painful scars on one's soul. These hurting people put up an imaginary wall in their mind to protect their heart from being hurt again. I know because I have a scarred soul, from the many wounds inflicted upon me over the years by people. Some of the scars were inflicted by unsaved heathens. Some were left by family members and friends. Other were inflicted by church pastors, coworkers, staff members and carnal saints. Those scars are permanent and hurt still even today, years and even decades later. All I can do when those painful memories from the past surface in my mind is to lay them at Jesus' feet at Calvary's cross. ..Colossians 3:13, “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. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.”Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”I love those beautiful passages of Scripture! The day that we got saved (i.e., born again), in God's sight we became one with Christ. That is, God the Father sees Jesus' imputed righteousness when He looks at us, He doesn't see our sins anymore (as far as our POSITION in Christ is concerned). Our CONDITION is a separate matter of obedience and discipleship. The inspired Holy Bible says that my life as a believer is hidden with Christ in God. Matthew 25:40 helps to explain Colossians 3:3. The Lord is essentially saying to us as redeemed saints: “We are in this called Christianity together. Whatever someone does to you, whether it be good or bad, they have also done it unto me, because we are one now.”John 14:18-20, “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.”We are not God, but God lives inside of us as His children, in the form of the blessed Holy Spirit (John 16:13; 1st Corinthians 3:16-17; 1st John 3:24). Read what their own abused alumni are negatively saying about PCC...
“Don't go here if you're a Christian; they don't actually follow the Bible. They just use it as an excuse to treat people like trash.” —Danielle Tate (2016)
“This institution did more to harm my personal development than any other. As a 38 year old professional, I still bear the scars of how I was treated by this harsh, unloving, uncaring college.” —Greg S (2015), a former abused PCC student
“17 years later and I'm still shaking off the trauma. So many extra-biblical rules it'll make your head spin. Great place for Pharisaical training if your into that. The rule book has more rules than the Bible.” —Jorn Anderson (September 2022), former mistreated PCC student
“Pcc is the worst school ever. It was a complete waste of my time and money. They kicked me out for going to the wrong Sunday school class. And that was a year ago. They still will not release my transcripts which has put me behind in my college career. They schools not be called a Christian college if they cannot even live by what the Bible has to say. If I was able to take it all back and not go there I would in a heartbeat. I am warning you if you are thinking about going DONT DO IT!!!!” —Gavin Bufford (2017), abused former PCC student
“I'm a 2018 graduate of PCC and I went here for all 4 years. It's really sad that this place calls itself Christian, its legalistic places like pcc that give Christians a bad name. They do have a lot of rules regulating most areas of life. I was treated very poorly and rude by several "Christians" on staff and faculty and I saw many of my friends treated the same way. I've personally seen people who were once people I would hang out with, when given positions of leadership become legalistic monsters taking joy in getting as many students in trouble as possible, and this is done in the name of Christ! As a student you are guilty until proven innocent and can be kicked out just because someone accuses you of something.” —Nick Harrison (2019), a mistreated PCC alumni
“It is NOT a friendly environment. All they care about is rules instead of encouraging and building you up in your Christian walk.” —Hannah Elizabeth Kirchhoff (December 2022), mistreated former PCC student
“They call themselves Christians, but Christians are supposed to show compassion and patience.” —Angela (January 2023), mistreated former PCC student
“In retrospect, I thank God for not having the opportunity to attend here (Pensacola Christian College) and myself for not making the decision to enroll.” —Richard Deuto (January 2023)
“Crackpot unaccredited school.” —Meryl Montgomery (November 2022)
Those are but just a handful of the hundreds of negative reviews on social media, against PCC for their ongoing culture of authoritarian abuse, indifference and woeful lack of compassion for people.
God Will Punish the Pensacola Christian College Camp For Their HatredIt was because of Pastor Jeff Redlin's abuse and hatred toward me that I had no church to attend for over a year, and I still have nowhere to go on Sunday evenings. I've feel nothing but cruelty and hatred from the pastors of Campus Church and PCC leadership. They are so wicked and far away from God! My soul is comforted by God's promise to avenge me of their hatred and mistreatment at PCC (Romans 12:19-21; Matthew 12:36). They are arrogant right now, because they are large in numbers and united in rebellion against God. No so-called “church” is right with God who refuses to make a way of RESTORATION for anyone! ...They are condemning me as a divorce man at PCC, refusing to provide a way of restoration so that I can return to fellowship with the friends that I made at PCC. Jeff Redlin is a little man who is is bog trouble with God! As long as they have tens of millions of dollars coming in, and thousands of new students enrolling to pursue a money-making career, PCC's leaders won't care. They don't care! Just ask their former student Samantha Field. PCC ought to be ashamed of themselves!!! I offered to make peace with them, but they sinfully refused, just like they threw Samantha Field under the bus! God will deal with their stiffnecked pride at PCC.
Romans 14:10-13, “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. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.”
They can never point a dirty finger at me on Judgment Day, because PCC are the ones who refuse to reconcile with me, which I am still trying to do to no avail. They people at PCC are rotten to the core! They are blinded by their phony religious singing, sycophantic sermonettes and merely playing church three times a week. Religious authoritarianism is cursing America, where men elevate themselves as some type of “authority” over normal everyday people like me. God is no respecter of persons, which is why He openly welcomes EVERYONE to freely receive His gift of eternal life by faith alone in His only begotten Son. Sadly, at PCC only certain people are welcome, but not people like me or Samantha Field. I care! If nothing else, my response to PCC's hatred and rejection shows plainly that I CARE!!! GOD CARES!!! What will it take for God to cause PCC to start caring? People just want to be loved. ALL LIVES MATTER!!!
Please do not support the sinful bad attitudes of PCC's leaders. Please do not sanction their milquetoast pastors who are wimps. Ask Samantha Field what she thinks about the PCC camp. She is one of their graduates. Search for her name online. PCC abused Samantha, just as they are abusing me. Even though I tried for 6 weeks to make peace with the PCC camp, they completely ignored me for those 6 weeks in 2022. Clearly, Jeff Redlin and company don't give a damn about individual people.
By God's grace, I will do my utter best to expose the PCC cult, and to warn people about that big phony, Jeff Redlin. I will warn people about that wicked compromiser and false teacher, Timothy Zacharias. Somebody needs to care! Somebody needs to ruffle their feathers at PCC, to try to get them to change. God sent Isaiah the prophet to preach against a stiff-necked and hard-hearted people. God told Isaiah to make their hearts fat with grease. In other words, God told Isaiah to keep preaching THE TRUTH anyway, even though the people weren't listening, because it was making their wicked hearts more calloused because of their resistance to do what is right, as a judgment against them. The PCC camp won't listen, I already know that, but I am going to keep preaching against them anyway, to make their stubborn rebellious hearts fat with grease, as a testimony against them, so on judgment day they won't have anywhere to run hide from God.
The bottom line is that PCC ought not to be bidding Godspeed to the ungodly Lordship Salvation crowd at Bob Jones College. BobJonesUniversity are devout supporters of their alumni, Pastor John MacArthur, the most dangerous false prophet in America today among evangelical and Baptist churches. John MacArthur is a devil in the pulpit, who teaches that children cannot be saved, and that Jesus didn't have God's blood flowing in His veins, and that faith in the Gospel is not enough to be saved. Why doesn't the PCC camp and their rotten Campus Church rebuke them sharply at BobJones? Why does the PCC camp wickedly bid Godspeed to the rotten Harvest Baptist Church on Guam? The Bible warns that by bidding Godspeed to false teachers, PCC has become partaker of their evils deeds. Pastor Redlin is effectively teaching Lordship Salvation, because he bids Godspeed to the Bob Jones University camp that does.
As of August 2, 2022 I have been banned in writing from attending Campus Church at PCC. I kindly apologized and offered to do whatever they required to make peace, but they are so full of bigotry, hatred and unforgiveness that they can't stand the sight of me, and refuse to make a path of RESTORATION as the Bible teaches in Galatians 6:1-2. SHAME on Pensacola Christian College for their unchristian hatred and shameful behavior. Again, you might want to send Campus Church and Pastor Jeff Redlin an email, to ask them why they refuse to reconcile with me, their Christian brother...

And mark my words, PCC is slowly changing for the worst, becoming ecumenical and corrupt in doctrine. You cannot eat at the Devil's table and not get spiritual food poisoning! You cannot play with the Devil's fire and not get burned. SHAME on Pensacola Christian College cult! SHAME on their Campus Church cult. Only a religious cult bans people from coming to church, as they have sinfully done to me! What was my great offense at PCC? I TOLD THE TRUTH!!! Galatians chapter four, verse sixteen, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” I have told THE TRUTH.
My name is David J. Stewart. I am a born-again Christian, since age 13. I am an independent fundamental Baptist preacher. Please visit some of my ministry websites at Jesusisprecious.org and Soulwinning.info. I also have a blog at Stewart1611.blogspot.com. I love you all with Christ’s unconditional love whoever you may be. Unlike the ungodly PCC camp that doesn’t care, I DO care very much. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS. People matter. Sadly, at PCC only SOME PEOPLE MATTER, but in genuine Bible Christianity ALL PEOPLE MATTER! I hope and pray that one of these days the pastors of Campus Church will repent and invite me back to church, so we can become friends instead of remain enemies. The ball is in their court alone. I have done all that I can to make peace with the PCC camp. Thank you for listening dear friend. Always remember, People just want to be loved.
