Why Pensacola Christian College Wickedly Hates Pastor Steven Anderson

by David J. Stewart | June 2023

2nd Timothy 3:12, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”

       I heard a great sermon today by Pastor Anderson, "Beware Of The Leaven Of Herod." I sure love Brother Anderson. I feel sorry for all the fools today who slander, hate and talk trash about him. One day in eternity all these fools will realize that Pastors' Steven Anderson, Bruce Mejia, Roger Jimenez, Jonathan Shelley and nobodies like me were the best friend they ever had, because we TOLD THE TRUTH.

What really saddens my heart is that a 23-year employed PCC staff member told me in 2021 that PCC leaders do NOT like Steven Anderson one bit. I knew in my heart that my days at PCC were numbered when I heard that, because I am just like Brother Anderson—I pay attention to the details and speak my mind if I have something to say. One of the amazing things about Pastor Anderson is that he THINKS.

One year for his annual Pastor's School, Dr. Jack Hyles chose as a theme: “I Am An Idea," based on a little simple booklet that he wrote many years earlier. At that year's Pastor's School, the whole concept which Dr. Hyles wanted to convey to the thousands of pastors, assistant pastors and clergy present was to simply use the MIND that God gave them to THINK. What a novel idea...lol. Dr. Hyles attributed much of his ministry's success over the decades simply to the fact that he continually thought of ways to improve, expand and grow his work for Jesus Christ.

Having said that, I never knew any preacher more than Dr. Hyles to stress the importance of praying down the power of the Holy Spirit. One of my favorite sermons on this topic is: "THE SPIRIT'S ABIDING."

“All is vain unless the Holy Spirit comes down​.​” —Dr. Jack Hyles, "The Spirit's Abiding"

That in a statement is exactly what is wrong with PCC today, they don't abide in the Holy Spirit. They are so preoccupied with educating students to make money, and playing church, that they don't walk with God. I heard a musician, Jerry Byrd (1920-2005), who is my favorite artist on Hawaiian steel guitar, say:

“When one is as good as they want to be, that's as good as they're going to get.” —Jerry Byrd (p. 109, “It Was A Trip On Wings Of Music”)

I met Jerry in 1993 in Winchester, Indiana at their bi-annual Hawaiian Steel Guitar meeting. I loved it! Bud Tutmarc (1924-2006) was also present that year at the Winchester convention. I bought a Hawaiian Gospel guitar music cassette tape at Hyles-Anderson College when I attended, from their bookstore. Bud Tutmarc was the artist who played the Gospel steel guitar. Anyway, I realized from the preceding great quote that what Jerry Byrd said about musicians is also true about everything! That is, when a Christian is as good as they want to be, that's as good as they're going to get! And that is what is wrong with PCC, they are as good as they want to be.

PCC has discovered that they can wing it—making tens of millions of dollars and gaining the support of tens of thousands of people—without contending for the faith, without loving the 1% of outcasts and difficult people like me who need their love and understanding and compassion the most. PCC doesn't want to get any better. They don't want to walk any closer to God. They don't want to love the people whom they don't need (but those hurting people do need them). PCC is at ease on Zion, just like the church of Laodicea. The carnal believers are Laodicea thought they were prospering, but Christ Himself called them spiritually blind, naked, wretched, poor and miserable. PCC is blinded by their own worldly success, failing to see that God has something better for them.

Pastor Steven Anderson wasn't content merely to be good, he wanted to be on fire for God. He wasn't as good as he wanted to be, so he wasn't limited by his lack of enthusiasm like PCC sadly has been for decades. PCC is content with mediocrity. Dr. Jack Hyles wasn't satisfied with being the biggest Sunday School in Hammond, he wanted to be the biggest Sunday School in the world. He wasn't content with winning a few people to Christ every 6 months, he wanted to win 6 souls to Christ every day! PCC is languishing in sinful mediocrity and compromise.

As I mentioned, I heard a great sermon today by Pastor Anderson called: "Beware Of The Leaven Of Herod." Dr. Hyles taught us that to lose something in the will of God is to find something better. Pastor Mejia and his congregation lost their church building in Los Angeles due to persecution from the wicked, but I heard Pastor Anderson say in the sermon I just mentioned that Pastor Bruce Mejia now has a bigger and better church building to serve the Lord. All things ultimately work together for good for the born-again believer (Romans 8:28).

The reason why PCC hates Pastor Anderson is because he puts them to shame. While PCC sits idle, playing church and making more filthy lucre; Brother Anderson is fighting the good fight of faith. Where is PCC in the fight? They are A.W.O.L. (Absent Without Leave). PCC are a disgrace to the name of Jesus Christ. We don't need cold-hearted religious educators today, we need soldiers for Christ!!! I have been banned from attending Campus Church by their hateful pastors, with shameful approval from PCC's heartless ungodly leaders. You see, the cult system always comes first at PCC, individual people do not matter. There is no forgiveness, no second chances, no understanding and no compassion at PCC.

PCC is foolish to make enemies. All I humbly requested was for permission to come back to Campus Church, but their ungodly hateful pastors refused. So we are enemies. This is all on them! I made a CONDITIONAL promise to remove all my criticisms if they would just agree to let me come back to Campus Church. I guess that was too much for them to handle, being the spoiled bratty children that they are at PCC. God is on my side because I am TELLING THE TRUTH. That is why PCC despises Pastor Anderson—because he takes a biblical stand against the LGBTQ community, while PCC says nothing. Pastor Anderson rips and hollers against the wickedness of our generation, while PCC is eerily silent. PCC are too high-minded, holier-than-thou and snobbish to condescend to the level of a John the Baptist, Jesus or Isaiah type of preacher. PCC only cares about making money, playing school and doing absolutely nothing to contend for the faith. PCC are cowards!!!

Even worse, PCC wickedly bids Godspeed to infidels like Ken Ham and the Lordship Salvation cult at Bob Jones University. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS folks!!! PCC doesn't give a damn, but I do and so does our great God! PCC has established their own impotent lame style of carnal Christianity that only selectively cares about certain people. Contending for the faith is not part of their ministry. All they do is make money while the world goes to Hell unwarned, and they hobnob with damnable false prophets.

Cowards hate courageous heroes, criticizing them to feel better about themselves. Pastor Steven Anderson is a HERO; Pastor Jeff Redlin is a wimpy COWARD. Jeff Redlin and the other incompetent pastors at Campus Church are clowns!!! PCC bids them Godspeed. I wouldn't enroll a dog into PCC today, because of their hatred and woeful lack of compassion for hurting people like me, and Samantha Field. I am blessed by God to have 4 children and 7 grandchildren. Yet, grandpas aren't even welcomed at PCC's cesspool of iniquity. The sad truth is that PCC leaders don't give a damn about anybody except themselves and those who pander to them! I'M NOT FOR SALE!!! The gods have spoken at PCC! I am not welcome there! Whatever good deeds PCC does are merely to be seen of men. That doesn't impress God one bit! PCC has utterly failed at loving God and loving people!!! People just want to be loved.

If you don't ever want to be criticized, then don't do anything for God. PCC does nothing, so they sit quiet and stink in their lethargic degenerative state of apostasy. I criticized PCC on social media, but then I apologized, pleading to come back to Campus Church. I humbly offered last year in 2022 to do whatever PCC requires to reconcile and make peace, but they refused to even communicate with me. I couldn't have been more docile and kind. Pastor Jeff Redlin sinfully hates my guts, shamefully patronized me with his insensitive words, and shamefully looked for any excuse to get rid of me. That is what cowards do! That is what hateful people do! I must have put the toilet paper roll backwards on the dispenser, so I am banned from coming to church ever again; or was it that I jaywalked on campus? These people are jerks!

Jeff Redlin is an ungodly imposter, a parasite who gets paid a disgusting 6-digit annual salary (well over $100,000 a year). Redlin gets paid 4 times more than what the average American worker earns in a year! That is so wrong! And yet that wicked pastor wouldn't even forgive me, to let me come back to church. What kind of a pastor does that?

So, you had better believe that I am going to preach against the cult at PCC. I am going to help victims like Samantha Field voice her cries against those PCC monsters!

Pastor Steven Anderson has his faults (as we all do), but I would rather voluntarily clean the toilets at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona; than to be the highest paid employee at Campus Church, where a bunch of incompetent hateful pastors selectively pretend to care about people. SHAME on Pensacola Christian College (PCC) for hating the man of God, when they don't even have one!!! Pastor Jeff Redlin is an opportunistic pig, a money-grubbing religious whore, who has sold his soul for worldly prosperity and popularity. Yes Sir, the pastors and leaders at PCC are all living large, parasiting off of stupid parents and unfortunate young people who survive in their prisonhouse of religion.

PCC sends out their sycophantic singing tour groups nationwide, to entice more gullible teenagers to enroll at their oppressive cult in Florida. The name of the game is money, money, money! How dare PCC leaders sit in judgment upon Pastor Anderson, when PCC is Sitting Idle On The Premises instead of Standing On The Promises!

I dare you to show me even one pastor who is an alumni of PCC, who preaches with fire like Pastor Steven Anderson. You cannot. PCC's alumni are spiritually lifeless, shallow, empty and powerless of the Holy Spirit. When you hear a PCC graduate preach, you will feel like you're sitting in a lifeless classroom at PCC. Teachers cannot reproduce preachers. Only preachers can reproduce preachers!!! The great need of the hour today is preaching preachers. Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) said that, and he was 100% right.

I felt sick recently to learn that Johnny Pope is scheduled to preach at PCC. What has happened to Johnny Pope? I remember hearing Johnny Pope preach at Hyles-Anderson College while I attended. He worked on staff at the time. Johnny Pope was preaching in HAC chapel one day and he said: “We need a whole new breed of preachers in this next generation!” Well, Pastor Steven Anderson and the New IFB are that new breed of preachers!!! So why is Johnny Pope sinfully dipping his sails, selling out like a little girlyboy sissy, to preach at a neo-evangelical dead college like PCC, who wickedly bid Godspeed to the Bob Jones University cult today? What happened Johnny? Dr. Hyles was so right:

“I've been preaching a long time, and I've watched a lot of things happen. To me the saddest thing that I've watched in my life, apart from my own country going to the Devil nearly, has been the change of preachers and churches. I find myself amazed and stunned with near disbelief, as I see men who once stood who don't stand anymore ... I know every week I cry some, I mean cry, I mean tear cry, because of preachers who are turning.”

SOURCE: Pastor Jack Hyles, from the 1972 sermon titled, 'I SHALL NOT BE MOVED'

PCC doesn't stand! Why would Johnny Pope lower himself for the sake of popularity at the expense of preaching hard against sin, false prophets like Ken Ham, and neo-evangelical apostasy in the churches? Every preacher in America should be crying aloud against the Lordship Salvation mess at Bob Jones University today!!! Every preacher in America should be crying aloud against BJU for permitting their female students to now wear pants, since 2018. That devil for a preacher, Steve Pettit, did that (with permission from incompetent BJU leadership). IT IS WICKEDNESS!!! Doesn't anybody preach fundamentalist Christianity anymore!!! That chicken-crap house at PCC sure doesn't. Somebody get mad! I'm going to throw a chair. I'll be back. ...

Okay, I'm back! I'm pissed off about all this garbage at PCC, BJU and other dangerous Bible colleges today.

Shame on any preacher who supports that neo-evangelical mess at PCC! PCC refuses to stand. They refuse to fight. So, it doesn't surprise me that they won't even allow me to attend their Campus Church, when they refuse to obey God to contend for the faith. Ask Samantha Field what she thinks about PCC. Ask Allen Armentrout what he thinks about PCC. Read what these PCC victims have to say...

“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)

There is no genuine love at Pensacola Christian College or Campus Church, only religious punks full of arrogance and haughty hubris and pride. They love only in word at PCC, but not in deed or in truth (1st John 3:18). I will keep preaching until my last dying breath against tyranny, corruption and abuse in fundamentalist institutions like PCC and BJU. People just want to be loved.

If every pastor was like the incompetent pastors at Campus Church, the world would all die and go to Hell in there sins. I thank God for fervent preachers like today's New IFB pastors, who STAND for God against the evils, corruption and false teachers of our generation. PCC is too preoccupied playing school, merely going through the superficial outward motions, but there is no inner truth or righteousness. The New IFB put the Pensacola Christian College camp to utter shame!!! Jeff Redlin is not worthy to shine Pastor Anderson's shoes! Like ungodly Hollywood, PCC fall all over themselves with self-adoration and self-glorification; but outside of their weird little hateful cult, they are nothing.

Dr. Jack Hyles was so right, you either love everybody or else you love nobody. PCC doesn't want to reconcile with me (their brother in Christ), which just proves everything negative I have said against them. PCC doesn't care about hurting people. All they care about is their damned paychecks!!! That is why so many people can't stand PCC today, they care about money but not people. PCC's walk talks much louder than their talk talks.

Tyranny is rarely seen except by those who are afflicted by it. PCC's victims see the tyranny. PCC leaders are carnally-minded, not God-fearing folks. If they feared God, they wouldn't ostracize hurting people from attending their Campus Church, like they are doing to me. I pray for God to avenge me of PCC's hatred, unwillingness to forgive, bigotry and bullying. Jesus is precious!!!

The Gift Of Eternal Life Is Wrapped In The Wonderful Package Of Jesus


“Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do!”
