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

Why Racism is a Sin, and Why Confederate Monuments in the United States Need to be Removed

A post that looks at why racism is a sin and why Confederate monuments should be removed in the United States. This also compares and contrasts issues of Confederate statues in public squares vs. Civil War battlefields such as Gettysburg.

The Season of my Discontent: When the Evangelical Christians are Wrong, the Atheists are Correct, and the Neo-Calvinists Surprise Me; A Reflection on the Neo-Nazi Rally in my Home State of Virginia

A quick post that is a response to the Nazi rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia. Its time to speak up and condemn Nazism which has no place in the United States. Not now, and not ever. We didn’t fight Nazism in Europe in World War II only to have it spring up in the United States. The resurgence in the alt-right which Donald Trump exploited needs to be condemned. This is about the season of my discontent when regular evangelicals are wrong, and the atheists and Neo-Calvinists are correct.  Continue reading

How About Them Cubbies! The Reconciliation of Steve Bartman and the Chicago Cubs, and What the Evangelical Christian Church Can Learn

The Chicago Cubs and Steve Bartman reconcile and resolve a lot of pain. In the process the Cubs show a lot of grace, forgiveness, and how reconciliation and healing is possible.

An open letter to Graham Cole who is the Dean of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. This open letter is regarding D.A. Carson’s behavior in attacking someone who was raped at 13 in a statement through The Gospel Coalition. Its time for that statement to come down, and its time for D.A. Carson to publicly admit this he is wrong. This is a situation that The Wondering Eagle is going to write about until Trinity does the right thing. Its long past time for this issue to be addressed.  Continue reading

Is Eric Simmons’ Redeemer Arlington a Rape Culture Like the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs?

A look at the problems of rape and sexual assault at the Air Force Academy. A new Colorado Springs Gazette article helps me to understand my false accusation more and realize that the false accusation was a tactic, a common one it appears in an un-healthy military academy culture. It also leads me to ask another question…is Eric Simmons Redeemer Arlington a rape culture? If a graduate from the Air Force Academy swimming in allegations of sexual misconduct calls SGM healthy, does Redeemer share the same cultural problems as the Air Force Academy?  Continue reading

Do Evangelicals Make Studying the Bible Idolatry? Some Thoughts from the Senior Pastor of First Free Lincoln

The Wondering Eagle looks at a post by Mark Brunott’s First Free Lincoln in Lincoln, Nebraska. In this post I want to ask the question. 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
