In Order to Understand Evangelical Culture One Should Cease Reading their Bible and Read George Orwell Instead

In order to understand evangelical Christian culture one should read, study and pay attention to the themes from George Orwell in his classic novels. The themes of corruption, totalitarianism, censorship, blind loyalty, and more are used to paint warning to society. Because remember comrade, while all animals are equal some like your pastor are more equal than others.  Continue reading

The Wondering Eagle’s Response to Jeff Loven’s Sermon, Plus the Responsibility Churches Such as The Bridge Fresno Have to Address Issues Inside the Greater EFCA

The Wondering Eagle visited The Bridge Fresno on Sunday December 31, 2017. This is my response to Jeff Loven’s sermon. In addition its time for churches like The Bridge Fresno to start to push back on issues that are hurting the national EFCA. In this post I raise the issue of D.A. Carson from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School who defended C.J. Mahaney by attacking a rape victim in a statement from The Gospel Coalition. Churches like The Bridge Fresno need to speak out and challenge the denomination leadership on acts of injustice. The days of being indifferent are now over. If churches like The Bridge stay silent on difficult issues then they are duplicating the behavior of the Jewish Priest who walks by the wounded Jewish man in the story of The Good Samaritan.  Continue reading

Do You Want to Write? I Would like to Build a Diverse Independent Team that Can Write The Wondering Eagle

Is the Anthem “Family of Churches” Trying to Duplicate Sovereign Grace Ministries in Southern California? If so Will Anthem Allegedly Cover Up Child Sex Abuse as C.J. Mahaney has Allegedly Done?

In Southern California there is a group of Evangelical Free Churches known as the Anthem “Family of Churches.” They are Neo-Calvinist/Reformed, members of The Gospel Coalition and the brainchild of Matt Larson. Is this Anthem “Family of Churches” trying to duplicate themselves after C.J. Mahaney’s Sovereign Grace “Family of Churches?” If so my question is this…will the Anthem movement engage in child sex abuse cover up as C.J. Mahaney has allegedly done in Sovereign Grace?
