Writing About an Email Exchange with Anne Marie Miller in December of 2015 When Reviewing Cru’s (Formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) Christmas Conferences.

The Wondering Eagle had an email exchange with Anne Marie Miller in December of 2015. It came about because this blog annually reviews and writes about Cru’s Christmas Conferences. In an email exchange she discussed being the victim of a sexual assault. Between then and now Anne Marie Miller decided to go forward and make the report against Mark Aderholt. Continue reading

Anne Marie Miller’s Alleged Sexual Abuse by Mark Aderholt, and Did the Southern Baptist’s International Missions Board Cover it Up? Plus David Platt’s Response

A disturbing scandal comes out of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Missions Board (IMB). Its the story of Anne Marie Miller and Mark Aderholt. Aderholt was a student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary who groomed and sexually abused Anne, Anne in time realized the severity of the situation and the IMB was notified.

Today’s The Wondering Eagle looks at this disturbing story.   Continue reading

Does Mark Mullery’s Redeeming Grace Church Fairfax Confirm What the Chinese Communist Party Says About Religion Contributing to Corruption?

In August of 2017 a Chinese exchange student at George Mason University involved in Mark Mullery’s Redeeming Grace Church Fairfax shared his testimony at church on a Sunday morning. The church uploaded it to You Tube. This post looks at the crackdown on corruption in China, which is attributed to religion according to the Chinese’s People’s Daily and asks a question. Is a church that is being dogged by allegations of child sex abuse cover up validating what the Chinese government states about corruption coming from religion?  Continue reading

An Open Letter to Kendra and Brad Hansen (EMI Missionaries in South Africa)

An open letter to Kendra and Brad Hansen as they embark on their mission in South Africa with EMI World. Just a reflection on someone who I have known for almost 17 years and going back to Campus Crusade at Marquette University. This also considers the changes we both have had to deal with. Given many of the dark subjects that I write about at The Wondering Eagle its nice to see something come together that is beautiful.  Continue reading

Responding to Jim Davis of 9 Marks Grace Bible Church in Oxford, Mississippi on College Students and Church Membership

Jim Davis of Grace Bible Church in Oxford, Mississippi wrote an article that talks about why college students should became church members. Jim is towing the 9 Marks line and he greedily reaches for more Kool Aid along the way in order to make the claims that he does. This is about a pastor who is lost and has made church membership an idol, and is worshiping that over Jesus.  Continue reading

From Cru, Sovereign Grace to John MacArthur’s Ministry; Are Women Responsible for Keeping Men Pure?

The latest scandal from John MacArthur’s Masters College leads to this post. This is a reflection on how ministries from Cru, to Sovereign Grace to John MacArthur want women to be modest so as to help keep guys from “stumbling” into lust. Are women responsible for guys’s purity? Or is evangelical culture a rape culture as we have seen both in Sovereign Grace and now John MacArthur’s ministry?  Continue reading

Do You Want to Write? I Would like to Build a Diverse Independent Team that Can Write The Wondering Eagle

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.  Continue reading

Evangelical Free Church of Salt Lake City, Utah…Trading the Gospel of Joseph Smith for the Gospel of Jonathan Leeman?

Today The Wondering Eagle is looking at the Evangelical Free Church of Salt Lake City, Utah. This hard core Neo-Calvinist church is in the 9 Marks network. My question is does Steve Clark understand Mormon culture? Why would a person leave Mormonism only to get involved in a 9 Marks church and then face “church discipline” and be shunned a second time? Steve Clark’s church is one that The Wondering Eagle hopes it can close in the course of time. The EFCA should be embarrassed that in ground zero of Mormonism, this is the church that represents the denomination.  Continue reading

An Open Letter to Jon Payne (District Superintendent of the Forest Lakes District on Reflecting on my Life in Wisconsin)

An open letter to Jon Payne the EFCA District Superintendent of the Forest Lakes District in Wisconsin. This is a reflection of my life in Wisconsin, attending Marquette and the city of Milwaukee which was once my home. This also remembers a different time in life. A time before I knew what spiritual abuse was, and how dark many parts of evangelical Christianity can be. It was a time I had hope and trusted the church. Is was a time before one was burned and fried.    Continue reading
