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.

The Wondering Eagle would like to transition from a one person blog to a team that can write about a number of issues. Those issues include atheism, doubt, Neo-Calvinism, the EFCA, Mark Dever’s Capitol Hill Baptist Church and issues in evangelicalism. I would like to bring on a diverse set of people in time who would have freedom to publish what is on their mind. If you are interested please drop me a note and let’s figure out a way forward.

After a First Evangelical Free Church members meeting in Wichita, Kansas in January of 2016 questions were asked about the EFCA denomination.

In this post you will find what I believe needs to be done to make the EFCA stronger and healthier in the course of time. Continue reading

A brief article to lay the foundation for a post in the next two months. Eventually I want to lay out the issues in the Evangelical Free Church that need change, and how they can be reformed. Its my goal to make The Wondering Eagle as a resource to influence and change the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA). In a future post I intend I lay out my long terms goals at The Wondering Eagle in regards to the Evangelical Free Church of America. If you have a history in the EFCA please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Continue reading
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?
