Why Daniel Montgomery Left the Sojourn Network in Louisville, Kentucky and the How the Shadow of Mark Driscoll Hangs Over Neo-Calvinism

Daniel Montgomery disappeared from Sojourn and to those on the outside many people had questions as to what happened to the Neo-Calvinist leader. Today’s The Wondering Eagle attempts to fill in the gaps and explain why he left Sojourn. Using internal documents that this blog obtained what happened to Daniel Montgomery is reminiscent of what happened with Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill Seattle, but only on a smaller scale. This blog would like to know why couldn’t Sojourn be transparent about Montgomery’s anger issues, bullying and more? Continue reading

Jane Schaible Contributes to a Post for the National EFCA Blog on Rebecca McLaughlin’s Confronting Christianity. When will the Employee of Josh Black’s First Free Wichita Acknowledge how Corruption Causes People to Lose Faith to?

At the national EFCA blog Jane Schaible who works at First Free Wichita contributed to a response about Rebecca McLaughlin’s new book called “Confronting Christianity.” One issue that was not addressed it appears in looking at the book briefly is that of corruption. The issue of the Evangelical Industrial Complex and more it appears are ignored. First Free Wichita is dealing with a lot of corruption. This blog has deep concerns about First Free and would not recommend it as a place for people to find faith. As evangelical corruption can result in people being driven away from faith it needs to be on the same level as issues such as the problem of evil or pain and suffering.   Continue reading

Zion Church of Kurten is an EFCA Church in Kurten, Texas. Recently they took down from their website a controversial discipleship program called The Milestone Program.

A Response to Bryan Lair of the EFCA/Acts 29 Trinity City Church in Saint Paul, Minnesota as he Asks, Are We Listening to the Good News or Fox News?

Bryan Lair of the EFCA’s Acts 29 Trinity City Church in Saint Paul, Minnesota writes an interesting article for the national EFCA blog. He poses the question and asks are we listening to Fox News or the Good News? While Bryan communicates some good points this blog raises some questions in response. While pointing out the issues of anger that can come from Fox News did Bryan in his life point out the same issues of anger from people like Mark Driscoll? Or did he consume, PODcast and drink the Kool Aid from a dubious and questionable pastor who this blog believes had mental health issues? Continue reading

Cornerstone Lodi is Using the Authentic Manhood Series in their Men’s Accountability Group. Have they Heard of the Fellowship Memphis Scandal?

Cornerstone Lodi is an Evangelical Free Church in Lodi, California. This church is actually using the Authentic Manhood program in its Men’s Accountability Group. This blog told the story of John Bryson and the voyeurism and child pornography scandal at Fellowship Memphis. I am still baffled why churches like Cornerstone would use the teachings of a man who played a role in covering up an abuse situation at an Acts 29 church in Tennessee. Continue reading

When the EFCA is Tone Deaf to Evangelical Scandals. Why is Ed Stetzer Speaking at EFCA One in Chicago?

The EFCA One conference is being held in Chicago in June of 2019. One of the key speaker/teachers/trainers is Ed Stetzer. Yes that Ed Stetzer who doesn’t know what ethics is. The same Stetzer who accepted gifts from James MacDonald while writing about him for Christianity Today. The same Ed Stetzer that has tried to silence people from the Harvest Bible Chapel scandal. The Wondering Eagle wants to raise the question, why is the EFCA tone deaf to scandals in evangelicalism? Do they care about the Christian faith and the Gospel?  Continue reading

On March 31, 2019 John Park an EFCA Pastor at Ambassador Bible Church in Chantilly, Virginia preached about how Christians should love. While it was a good talk in contrast to greater evangelicalism it was a failure. Many evangelicals do not know what love is. This post looks at John’s sermon and analyzes the issues with it.  Continue reading
