As we start 2018 a scene from the classic movie The Matrix is how the year will be kicked off. If you are looking for truth you will find it here. You have two options before you…the blue pill that will allow you to return to your Pollyanna view of Evangelical Christianity. Or the red pill which will reveal to you how deep the rabbit hole goes and the corruption and issues which exist in Evangelical Christianity. What will you choose? Continue reading
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
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
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
This post is an overview of the issues that popped up at McLean Bible (MBC) a mega church in the Washington, D.C. area in the 2015 until 2017 time-frame that revealed MBC was being theologically hijacked. The Wondering Eagle picked up on many of the issues over the course of time. This post also contains a list of questions that need to be answered and what I believe is going to happen to MBC in the 2018 to 2020 time-frame. Continue reading
A former teaching pastor at McLean Bible posts a video to his Facebook page on why he is voting no on David Platt.
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. I write about this after watching the shifting polity at McLean Bible here in the Washington, D.C. area. When people are silent on abuse or unethical situations then in time they became enablers. 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
