Problems Not That Campus Church Is Too
BIG, It Is That Jeff Redlin's Heart Is Too SMALL

Matthew 25:40-45, “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. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.”
I am truly grieved and saddened over the horrible abusive way that so many pastors mistreat hurting people nowadays. I personally have been horribly kicked out of churches for just TELLING THE TRUTH. Sadly, the fastest way to get kicked out and banned from a church today is to simply TELL THE TRUTH! I'm very serious. Just tell THE TRUTH that all of today's Westcott and Hort based Bible revisions are corrupted by Satan, and you will be excommunicated from church! Dear friend, Telling The Truth Is Love! Psalms 109:4-5 “For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.”
In July of 2021 I decided to move from the island of Guam (where I had lived for 17 years) to Pensacola, Florida. I had always heard about the great Pensacola Christian College (PCC) and didn't know that they has started their own Campus Church on their property. So I decided to attend Campus Church. My first time at their church was a 4th of July picnic. I felt lost, like a fish out of water. A stranger approached me and introduced himself, but I had no idea who he was.
But first a little background. I had made housing arrangements 30 days prior to leaving Guam, at a hotel in Pensacola for $55 per night for a one month stay. I had my reservation confirmation information and thought all was good to go. But my United Airlines flight was delayed leaving Guam for an hour, due to an idiot light that came on the pilots control panel. (United Airlines was recently fined by the government for too many flight delays.) Consequently, I missed my connecting flight to Denver in Honolulu and my 23 hour flight time now became 43 hours! I contacted the Woodspring Suites Hotel in Pensacola to let them know that I was still coming, but would be one date late due to circumstances beyond my control. Those wicked greedy people cancelled my entire reservation. I begged them not to, offering to pay for the missed day, but they said... It's done, too bad so sad! So I ended up sleeping in my car in Wal-Mart's parking lot for the next 3 days.
When I first met Jeff Redlin I had no idea that he was the senior pastor at Campus Church. He just told me his name, which I had never heard of before. I told him that I was homeless, sleeping in Wal-Mart's parking lot. I'll never forget the startled look on his face, like he know that he was supposed to help a stranger in need, but didn't want to. So he ignored what I had clearly said to him, and he exited away from me as fast as he could. That was my first impression of Jeff Redlin, which I learned 15 minutes later from some church members I had met at the picnic, that he is the senior pastor at Campus Church. My first instincts of him were exactly right, that Jeff Redlin is a sad little man who doesn't genuinely care about hurting people.
A couple weeks later on July 14th, 2021 I heard Assistant Pastor Timothy Zacharias preach blatant heresy at a Wednesday night Bible study, while promoting false prophet Ken Ham (who runs his Ark Encounter circus in Kentucky). Pastor Zacharias errantly said: “Repentance is a change of mind resulting in a change of behavior.” He was very dogmatic about it, preaching with authority to thousands of people, which upset me because he is WRONG doctrinally! Repentance unto life has absolutely NOTHING to do with our behavior changing as believers. The indwelling Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to sanctify the believer (John 17:17); IF we are yielded to Him (2nd Corinthians 10:5-6); IF we desire the sincere milk of the Word so that we can grow (2nd Peter 2:2); IF we present our bodies as a living sacrifice to God (Romans 12:1). A change of behaviour is NOT guaranteed for any believer (1st Corinthians 3:15). It is dangerous what Pastor Zacharias false preaches, because it puts forth the wrong notion that if your behavior doesn't change, you didn't really get saved. That is the damnable heresy that the Satanic Bob Jones University camp are preaching today, which is called CALVINISM!
So the next morning on July 15th, I kindly emailed Pastor Redlin about the matter, wanting to know the church's official doctrinal position, because their church website doesn't contain anything about the junk theology Mr. Zacharias is teaching. Pastor Redlin sadly confirmed that the heresy being preached by Tim Zacharias is indeed Campus Church's official position, which they teach in their Foundation's Class to all new members. Dear friend, PCC is corrupted doctrinally. Bible repentance simply means “a change of mind,” period. It means nothing less or more! In the beloved Gospel of John we find the word “BELIEVE” mentioned 88 times, but the word “REPENT” is not mentioned even once! That teaches us that repentance is automatic. The man who BELIEVES has also repented. That is, he has changed his mind from unbelief to belief. If turning away from sin were required to be saved, then that would be KEEPING THE LAW (Romans 3:19-20). I am sick and tired of these false prophets creeping into our Bible colleges and churches and corrupting them!!!
Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) said it well concerning Bible repentance:
“Which comes first, repentance or faith? In Scripture we read, 'Repent ye, and believe the gospel.' Yet we find true believers exhorted to 'repent, and do the first works.' So intimately are the two related that you cannot have one without the other. The man who believes God repents; the repentant soul puts his trust in the Lord when the Gospel is revealed to him. Theologians may wrangle over this, but the fact is, no man repents until the Holy Spirit produces repentance in his soul through the truth. No man believes the Gospel and rests in it for his own salvation until he has judged himself as a needy sinner before God. And this is repentance.” (Except Ye Repent, p. 16)
So they need to get their Bible doctrine correct over at Campus Church of Pensacola Christian College, because RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!
Moving on, it was soon thereafter in July of 2021 that I confided in Pastor Jeff Redlin that I had been divorced and lonely for 15 years, since 2006, and I really hoped to find a wife at Campus Church. I didn't want the divorce! I have the legal document with her signature on it, that my former wife refused to reconcile with me! I am the victim in this divorce. To my dismay, that cold-hearted wicked man actually scolded me for coming to church to find a wife. I kindly rebuked Jeff Redlin back for jumping to such an erroneous conclusion, because I had never said that the ONLY reason I came to Campus Church was to find a wife. I go to church because God wants me to. But it just so happens that I am also hoping to get remarried, and where else would I find a wife except a local New Testament church? Pastor Redlin is a very unreasonable fool, as well as a heartless and selfish man. He has a wife, so who cares about divorced people, right? SHAME!
What bothers me so much is that Jeff Redlin couldn't have cared less about me as a hurting divorced man, and a human being created in God's image. Mr. Redlin is a shallow, cruel and ungodly person. I wouldn't give you a dime for him. I gave Campus Church a horrible review on Google, to warn others who walk into that hellhole of their apostasy and coldness toward divorced sinners at Campus Church. Dear reader, the way that pastors treat people really matters! He never told me that he loved me in Christ. He never once expressed any sympathy or empathy for my great loss, pain of soul and broken life. Something is wrong with Jeff Redlin! Why is that horrible man pastoring any church?
But it gets worse! Right in front of his wife, in his contempt for me as a divorced man, Pastor Redlin told me on a Sunday morning that even if I found a woman to marry, he would never perform the wedding. Who does that? What pastor tells a hurting and lonely divorced man, who he has only vaguely known for 3 weeks of his life, such cruel and calloused words? I felt like crap after being mistreated by Pastor Redlin. I kindly told him that he had made me feel like garbage! I pray and wish to God, that Redlin's wife would abandon and divorce him, so he could be broken, hurting and all alone for 15 years as I have, so he can see how it feels and how evil he has been toward me.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is something VERY WRONG with any pastor who berates a divorced person for simply desiring to remarry after 15 years of loneliness. Jeff Redlin never once offered to pray for me! He never once told me that he cared, or that he was praying me, or offer any words of encouragement. The man was a scared coward! I attended Campus Church for the summer of 2021 and ultimately concluded (as a review of their ministry), that they are a bunch of shallow academic types in the PCC camp, who woefully lack God's love for hurting sinners! When I told a group of three men, members of Campus Church, that I was divorced but hoped to find a wife at Campus Church, their countenances literally dropped and they one by one departed, leaving me alone.
I later found out that the Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp believes divorced people are just supposed to masturbate the rest of their life, and pretend that they don't have a healthy libido. “Christ is all I need” they hypocritically shove in your face, while they enjoy the comfort of their wives and homecooked meals! I eat at MacDonald's. My Bible says that “it is not good that the man should be alone” in Genesis 2:18b. Kindly said, I wonder if while Jeff Redlin is banging his wife in bed, if he stops to care at all that my wife for the past 16 years has been a folded pillow using a couple boxes of Kleenex tissues each month? Do I feel like a dog? You better know I do! I feel lower than a dog living this way. But as long as pastors hate, shun, ostracize and punish me for TELLING THE TRUTH, I'll never find a decent Christian woman to marry. Forgive my frankness, but the PCC camp are as wicked as Hell for berating and shunning divorced people away. It's not an easy life being divorced, yet in their utter self-righteous hypocrisy they completely alienate single divorced people like me. It is wickedness!!! SHAME on the PCC camp!
I came to Campus Church in July of 2021 with a big heart of love, care and desire to give and be a blessing in every way I could, and I plainly said so in writing to Pastor Jeff Redlin. My Holy Bible teaches in 1st Corinthians 7:2, “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” But Jeff Redlin thinks he knows more than God, so he craps on hurting divorced people like me, shunning me away. Feel free to contact this Pharisaical jerk (or share my honest article with him) at:
jRedlin@campuschurch.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
People Just Want To Be Loved folks! I learned that precious TRUTH from a dear preacher whom I love and admire, Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr., who wisely said: “Human Beings Just Want To Be Loved... Just Love The Hell Out Of Them!” Jeff Redlin sadly doesn't know what real love is! Pastor Redlin could learn a thing or two from Pastor Jenkins. I humbly came to Campus Church hungry to love and hopefully be loved back, but instead I was kicked in the head and left for dead, after being thrown under the bus by their rotten senior pastor. SHAME on Jeff Redlin! The Problem Is Not That Campus Church Is Too BIG, It Is That Jeff Redlin's Heart Is Too SMALL. Thank you for reading my heartfelt words. I love you all with Christ's love. To God be the glory!
