Brick Lane Community Church Joins The Gospel Coalition, and Challenging a Misleading Statement from Steve Estes Church

Brick Lane Community Church has exited the EFCA. Its statement in the local Elverson, Pennsylvania press was deceitful. It stated that they had to vote to separate from the EFCA and then align with the The Gospel Coalition. This post at The Wondering Eagle pushes back against that corrupt statement. After all in Eddie Cole’s Eastern District there are 15 EFCA churches involved in The Gospel Coalition. Plus it was learned that the most prolific pastors are Bill Kynes and Benjamin Vrbicek. The Wondering Eagle would like to ask, can Merle and Dave Stoltzfus and Steve Estes be honest?  Continue reading

Why is Bryan Loritts Speaking at The Bridge Fresno on July 8, 2018? Is Andrew Smith Aware of the Dark and Deviant Scandal that Took Place at Acts 29 Fellowship Memphis?

My former EFCA Church in Fresno, California is having Bryan Loritts speak on July 8, 2018. Is The Bridge Fresno aware of the scandal, of voyeurism and alleged child pornography that was manufactured at Acts 29 Fellowship Memphis? Bryan Loritts was one of the pastors who oversaw the alleged cover-up. This is a post to my old church telling them they need to cancel Bryan Loritts. You don’t place a wolf before the congregation.  Continue reading

From Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill, to C.J. Mahaney’s Sovereign Grace to Jordan Kauflin’s Redeemer Arlington and an Air Force Captain I Knew, A Question that Must be Posed. Are Neo-Calvinists Modern Day Jonah’s in that All They Do is Flee?

There is one aspect to Neo-Calvinists that I have noticed. You can see this in the behavior of Mark Driscoll, C.J. Mahaney and an Air Force Captain from Jordan Kauflin’s Redeemer Arlington. All of them fled when they should have worked out their problems. All of them fled while believing in Biblical Manhood and in church discipline. All they left in their wake was pain, trauma and fractured lives. For the Neo-Calvinist this is also “sound doctrine.”  Continue reading

Guest Post: No Man Can Serve Two Masters – Leaving Matt Chandler’s The Village Church and Finding Hope

This is the story of Matt Chandler’s The Village Church who threatened to practice church discipline on a celibate Christian who is same-sex attracted. This story happened before the Karen Hinkley situation in 2015. This is the story of Robert and his faith in God, and his struggle with the church in Dallas. Robert was involved in The Village Church and his journey took him out of ground zero for the Acts 29 network and in the process he found hope.  Continue reading

What The Wondering Eagle Appreciates and Respects About Neo-Calvinism

The Wondering Eagle is critical of the Neo-Calvinist movement in many forms. However, there are certain areas where the Neo-Calvinist movement shines and does well. From addressing racism, having a broader and more global definition of the church to having a healthier take an alcohol. Today’s post is a reflection on the segments of Neo-Calvinism that are healthy and good.  Continue reading

Posting the Question I Submitted to Bill Riedel at Redemption Hill (Washington, D.C. Acts 29) Asking if Bill Believes in Military Chaplains? Or out of Neo-Calvinist Theology Does he Reject the Concept of Military Chaplains?

This is a post of my question to Bill Riedel at Acts 29 Redemption Hill here in the Washington, D.C. area. After telling the story of Acts 29 Remnant in Richmond I questioned Bill and asked if he believes that military chaplains should exist. Or does he reject the concept out of his Neo-Calvinist theology.  Continue reading

An Open Letter to Ryan Kwon (Acts 29 Pastor at Resonate Regarding Comments Made in a Gospel Coalition Article)

This is an open letter to Acts 29 pastor Ryan Kwon. This is a response to what Ryan says in an article in The Gospel Coalition about the demise of Mars Hill and Acts 29 eventually thriving. Why does Ryan and Acts 29 at the time give the benefit of the doubt to Mark Driscoll when many people under him had that denied? Ryan also had a flawed view of Acts 29 being healthy. And Ryan seems to believe that an organization growing is a sign of God blessing it. I wonder if he thinks the same thing of Mormonism, Scientology or Islam?  Continue reading
