Dan George became the first person in leadership from Harvest Bible Chapel to issue a statement of repentance. This post examines the issue from competing sides. Should Dan George’s statement of repentance be accepted or should it be rejected? Continue reading
Harvest Bible Chapel needs to own their mistakes. Individuals like Talbott Behnken, Jeff Donaldson and others need to admit they were wrong. For the hurt and pain they have caused they need to repent and own what they did to others and accept the consequences. This blog heard the other day that Harvest Christian Academy will be hit by the financial scandal and won’t likely last beyond the end of this school year. Either way individuals like the Haskells, Maldeners, Ferraros, the Secrests and others need an apology and to see some action behind the words. In the Harvest Bible Chapel scandal this blog will push for that action. Continue reading

In 2015 some members and attenders of First Evangelical Free Church of Racine, Wisconsin stood in the Racine area and protested abortion. This post looks at how some evangelicals treat abortion and how many lack love. What if evangelicals actually helped people who were pregnant long term instead of engaging in short term activism?

Harvest Bible Chapel announced that James MacDonald is taking a sabbatical and will work to reconcile with people. This blog has its doubts given MacDonald’s behavior. After all James MacDonald had 20 years to do the right thing, and he refused. After all who desires to resolve problems by firing off a lawsuit against a journalist and The Elephant’s Debt? Any kind of sincere repentance has to include people like RT Maldaner, Dan Haskell, and others who were hurt in the Paxton Singer situation. This blog believes that John Secrest from Harvest Naples is in James MacDonald’s sight and that he is going to be abused by the Harvest machine.
Matt Stowell left a comment on The Wondering Eagle and apologized to a former Harvest Bible Chapel church planting pastor. I contacted Matt and asked him if I can turn it into a quick post and allow for people that need to reconcile or work things out to contact him. Matt agreed. In this post you will have Matt Stowell’s contact information and you can reach out to Matt. Please be patient if you contact Matt and it takes some time, there may be a few people who want to contact him.
The Wondering Eagle visited The Well Community Church in north Fresno on January 6, 2018. Mike Slayden gave the sermon which was pre-recorded and shown on a screen. This post reviews some of what Mike taught. While The Well pastor preached on Matthew 5:23-24 this blog has come to the conclusion due to personal experience that evangelical Christians don’t believe in repentance and reconciliation. Plus what do you do when a church like The Bridge Fresno make errors and refuses to atone for its mistakes? Finally as Mike Slayden quoted from Ravi Zecharias, is The Well pastor aware of the sexting charges and academic fraud allegations that came out about Ravi Zacharias? Continue reading
