Any chance someone actually has this book and can vouch for the quoted text? Can't find a free online version. Strange, you'd think true Christians would want to spread their theology to everyone with their only reward being the knowledge of saving someone's immortal soul...

Bible Doctrines for Today - a Bible course text that may also double as bad science fiction. An excerpt: "Some have suggested that as Christ returns, the New Jerusalem, a satellite space city, begins its descent toward the earth (Rev.21:1-2). This event has not gone unnoticed by the sophisticated tracking devices of the world. The armies of the world therefore pinpoint its destination as Jerusalem and gather there to do battle against what they interpret as invaders from outer space."

I can vouch for it. I still own that particular book. (talk) 17:23, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

I can vouch for most of the content of the article. I read the student handbook that was leaked by The Student Voice, and it seems that Pensacola's policies even forbid men and women from looking each other too deeply in the eye (a.k.a., "making eye babies"). I cannot vouch for what is said of Science: Order & Reality or Bible Doctrines for Today. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:02, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm just concerned that Student Voice isn't really a primary source. It should be clear in the article that the info is from a document leaked by that website - it may sound a little Wikipedian or pedantic, but it's also intellectual honesty. The articles of faith may suggest some things in the usual way that they do, and would be useful to look into as it is a primary source. It shows they're as God-bothering as they come, although seem to be quite silent on the rules appearing in the leaked handbook. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 15:53, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
I can vouch for everything in this article and on the Student Voice, not that that means much, but I was a student there for about a year and half before I "withdrew". It's like a prison. LeRajah (talk) 04:33, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

I added a new section called "degrees offered". I went on the PCC website and I resisted laughing when their site mentioned "Natural Science" degree's--Rationalzombie94 (talk) 17:32, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

'Eye babies' whatever next :) (talk) 18:20, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Why not have some fun?: new names for PCC[edit]

Here are a few ideas-

  • Pensacola Christian Prison
  • Loony Bin College
  • North Korea Academy
  • Cult College --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 23:45, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

What company does mantainence and janitorial for this school?[edit]

I'm im Pensacola for business, and some young looking girl driving a blue utility van with the PCC logo on it almost hit me, then flipped me the bird when I blew the horn. She's probably a student, and I don't want to call PCC because they will probably expell her over it, but whatever company she works for needs to have a talk with her about proper etiquette when driving a company vehicle.

If only you lived in glorious Russian city of industry, comrade... You would have cam of dash. You would have witness. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 22:04, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
I have a picture, but there's two reasons I'm not going to post it. Number 1, as a truck driver, while I know most companies have some sort of reasonable system in place for handling this sort of thing without firing the employee on a first offense, and I know most of these campuses outsource these kind of jobs to fortune 500 companies, I cannot tell you how much I despise it when someone publicly humilates someone over a traffic infraction. Number 2, as a father of a young lady who goes to a state university and is probably about this girl's age, I would want to hurt someone if they posted my daughter's picture online like that. Plus, while I think this young lady needs a corrective action from the company, I don't want to get her expelled, which I what I think PCC would do based on what I know about them. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
Jokes aside, you sound like a responsible dad. It would indeed be wrong to "dox" that girl (and nobody is asking you to here!), and it would certainly be overkill to get her into serious trouble over flippin' the bird in traffic once (I'm not saying it was kosher of her to do so; I'm saying, maybe she has ADHD and was on her period and just stubbed her toe? I'm going for empathy here). Maybe she felt bad about it later. Maybe she experienced it as a momentary loss of control. But again, maybe she didn't. And somehow being able to reach her or her employers and just communicate to her that if she keeps doing this, she's going to have a bad time, isn't outside your rights. But that's not unequivocally the right thing to do (at it's worst, it's almost "an eye for an eye"). It's a hard nut to crack, this. But my own two cents are — better that you let this slide (turning your cheek and being the bigger man) than you go maybe getting her fired (!), even considering it was all her fault and she acted like an idiot. Even so. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 15:26, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
I know a bit about this kind of thing because I work for the cafeteria in a public school. If they don't self-operate, most of the "fundie" schools use Aramark, Sodexo, or some small company owned by a member of the church the campus is affiliated with. But don't assume that it is outsourced; "outsource" is a dirty word in the food service business. Ricky's Wiki (talk) 05:14, 27 February 2017 (UTC)


They have a palm tree for a logo! They have the same mascot as my school too! From their website, it looks like a really nice place for someone who believes what they believe. DanielleD (talk) 11:45, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
