An Open Letter to Kendra and Brad Hansen (EMI Missionaries in South Africa)

An open letter to Kendra and Brad Hansen as they embark on their mission in South Africa with EMI World. Just a reflection on someone who I have known for almost 17 years and going back to Campus Crusade at Marquette University. This also considers the changes we both have had to deal with. Given many of the dark subjects that I write about at The Wondering Eagle its nice to see something come together that is beautiful.  Continue reading

Matt Dirks from Harbor Hawaii on God Being Your Defender. My Question is the Following. Are Neo-Calvinists Responsible for their Actions?

Matt Dirks is an Acts 29/Evangelical Free pastor in Honolulu, Hawaii at a church called Harbor Hawaii. He wrote a post recently on the church blog about God being your defender when you are hurt and wronged. Matt’s post exposes another problem with Neo-Calvinism. Are people in that theological stream responsible for their actions? When they hurt or cause pain are they responsible for their pain?  Continue reading

What Jordan Kauflin and Redeemer Arlington Can Learn from a Washington Post Article on Apologizing

An article in the Washington Post by Allison Klein looks at recent apologies in the movement challenging sexual assault in the United States. This article asks what is an apology? What should be accepted? How should a person interpret how one is being given?

Carolyn McCulley Tweets on the Roy Moore Situation, When is Carolyn Going to Face C.J. Mahaney’s Sovereign Grace Ministries Sex Abuse Scandal? When will Jordan Kauflin Face Bob Kauflin’s Enabling of Mahaney? Remember The Wondering Eagle is a #MeToo When it Comes to Abuse from Redeemer Arlington

Recently Carolyn McCulley tweeted about the Roy Moore situation in Alabama when she told Russell Moore to preach about churches being safe.  The Wondering Eagle would like to know when is Carolyn McCulley going to face C.J. Mahaney’s alleged cover up of child sex abuse in SGM? When will Jordan Kauflin sit down with his father Bob and ask him why he is enabling C.J. Mahaney?

Does Eric Simmons’ Redeemer Arlington Practice Christian Ghosting, or Shunning? Is that a Legacy from its Roots in C.J. Mahaney’s Sovereign Grace Ministries’ Cult?

A recent post by Benjamin Corey about shunning triggered a flood of emotions inside of me. It led me to ask a lot of questions and if I was shunned also by an Air Force Captain who tried to get me inside Redeemer Arlington. This post is about another aspect in the dark side of religion. Its about shunning and the effects of when Christians shun.  Continue reading

With how Jonathan Leeman Writes about Biblical Conversion the Question Must be Asked, Does the Editor from 9 Marks Believe C.J. Mahaney Is a Christian?

One of the most read articles at the 9 Marks website deals with churches who do church discipline wrong. One point in Jonathan Leeman’s article led to a question at The Wondering Eagle. With how the 9 Marks editor describes Biblical conversion the question must be asked, is C.J. Mahaney a Christian? Especially in light of how he has continually fled? Also will a 9 Marks pastor like Garrett Kell or Mark Dever ever face church discipline? Finally how my unresolved conflict with Eric Simmons and Jordan Kauflin’s Redeemer Arlington shows that 9 Marks is a total failure and to be rejected.  Continue reading

When Evangelical Christians are Silent on Corruption Because They Believe God is Honored; and Why the Church Should Intervene and When Atheists are Validated

Tackling the issue of when Christians are silent on corruption. What happens when Christians choose to look away and not do the right thing. Why the world sees through their behavior.

Its hard to speak up yes, I did it both with Redeemer Arlington and Fairfax Community Church. But one must speak up in the end.  Continue reading
