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

The Wondering Eagle for 2017, The Year in Review, My Assessment and What is Coming in 2018

This is the final post at The Wondering Eagle for 2017. In a year filled with pain and loss I wrote 300 posts about the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA), Neo-Calvinism, The Gospel Coalition, 9 Marks, Redeemer Arlington, and also atheism and secular humanism. This is an overview of the top posts and my personal favorites. Also I discuss what is coming in 2018. In January The Wondering Eagle is going to look at a dark Acts 29 situation in the United States. Continue reading

Graham Cole Speaks at Hershey Evangelical Free; Will the EFCA Ever Face the Issue that D.A. Carson Attacked an Alleged Sexual Assault Victim in The Gospel Coalition Statement in Defense of C.J. Mahaney?

Hershey Free Church in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania is hosting Graham Cole from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS). Graham is TEDS Dean and its time for the EFCA to face and deal with the fact that D.A. Carson attacked a rape victim in a statement from The Gospel Coalition while defending C.J. Mahaney. In an era of massive push back against sexual harassment, rape and misconduct now is the time for the EFCA to address this issue. I would like to see the EFCA be on the right side of history.  Continue reading

Does the Washington, D.C. Area Need Another 9 Marks Church? Deep Concerns about Henderson Hills Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma Sponsoring Matt Felton and David Chung’s Trinity Church of Loudoun County

Matt Felton and David Chung were sent out by Henderson Hills Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma to plant Trinity Church Loudoun County. Mike McKinley’s Sterling Park Baptist as well as The Summit Network and Mclean Bible’s New City Network are also involved in this plant. This is a look at a diseased church plant taking off in which the question is asked, is this what the Washington, D.C. area and Loudoun County need? This article looks at all the problems with this plant, including the issues with 9 Marks, which must include the way C.J. Mahaney fled Covenant Life and hid behind Mark Dever’s ass. If you could ever make a theological case for aborting a church plant, Matt Felton and David Chung’s creation is it. This is the first of many posts about The Trinity Church of Loudoun in the course of time.  Continue reading

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? I am happy Carolyn cares about abuse, does it apply to the Sovereign Grace situation?  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

How the Sovereign Grace Ministry Child Sex Abuse Scandal Makes the Nashville Statement Worthless

A look at the Nashville Statement and how it was made worthless by the Sovereign Grace Ministries child sex abuse scandal. This looks at the Nashville Statement briefly and asks the question, how could C.J. Mahaney sign such a statement? So being gay or certain forms of sexual activity is sin; yet the alleged cover-up of the rape of a child is fine? Plus the timing of the statement was really awful considering Hurricane Harvey and the Neo-Nazi riot in Charlottesville, VirginiaContinue reading
