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.

A post explaining why David Platt needs to be rejected by McLean Bible at the next congregation meeting. There are many reasons why David should be rejected and this goes into all the details.

The Wondering Eagle would like to transition from a one person blog to a team that can write about a number of issues.

A look at a post from Drew Buell’s blog on what it means to be a healthy member of a church. This comes from the senior pastor at Cool Community Church in Cool, California and it is indeed quite flawed. I look at the issues with what Drew is teaching and recall a situation of how someone I once knew from a Neo-Calvinist church here in the Washington, D.C. area advocated the same thing from Sovereign Grace, and was a “healthy member” who also taught me why rape and sexual assault is a problem in the military.

An open letter to the Multiplication Catalyst of The Western District. Andrew Hoffman who is involved in The Gospel Coalition of the Bay Area gets a frank letter on why the Neo-Calvinist movement is a failure, and why its run its course. From Mark Driscoll talking about the Biblical basis of blowjobs, to C.J. Mahaney’s SGM scandal and allegations of covering up child sex abuse, to D.A. Carson attacking a rape victim; to my brush with Eric Simmons Redeemer Arlington. The days of The Gospel Coalition and the Neo-Calvinist movement are over. Its time to admit that it has failed and move forward. Continue reading
