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

The Wondering Eagle would like to transition from a one person blog to a team that can write about a number of issues. Those issues include atheism, doubt, Neo-Calvinism, the EFCA, Mark Dever’s Capitol Hill Baptist Church and issues in evangelicalism.

Do evangelical Christians make the Bible an idol and worship scripture instead of God? After all some Christians have a good knowledge of the Bible and yet their life is just bland of love. I hope we can have a discussion on that topic today.  Continue reading

How the Secularization of the United States will be Good for Atheists, Secular Humanists, the Christian Church and the Nation; Some Pushback to Tim Massaro

This is an article about why the secularization of the United States is going to be a good for the nation. The beneficiaries of secularization are atheists, secular humanists and non-theists; as well as the Christian church and the nation.

As a Christian I look forward to the secularization of the United States and believe it will do a lot of good on many fronts.  Continue reading

Guest Post: Closet Atheist’s Boyfriend’s De-conversion Story
