After some of the feedback I have received I decided to take the 95 reasons alone and make them a stand alone post. Feel free to print and turn this in with your resignation from a Neo-Calvinist church. Or in the spirit of Martin Luther you can nail or tape these to the door of your local church. For those that do so please take a picture and email me about the experience. I was out traveling this past weekend so this will fill until the next post. Also for those inquiring…it’s not an accident that Jonathan Leeman is listed four times. The corruption in 9 Marks justifies a new Reformation alone. Continue reading
Some thoughts on Jon Bloom’s article at Desiring God on Reformation Day. My response in saying that Jon is writing about the corruption in himself, Sovereign Grace, and Neo-Calvinism. We need a new Reformation and I write my 95 reasons why. Eagle also has a challenge…I challenge someone to nail (or tape) these 95 reasons to the door of Capital Hill Baptist Church or Sovereign Grace Louisville when either Mark Dever or CJ Mahaney is preaching. Their theological tyranny is coming to an end. Continue reading

Matt Chandler you have this non Neo-Calvinist’s ear and Matt I am willing to listen and learn from you. What book or sermon series would you recommend me listening to? Continue reading
This is my analysis of The Village Church letter of apology plus my thoughts on Matt Chandler’s sermon. Inb this post I explain why the apology by The Village Church (TVC) falls short and the issues it contains. I am puzzled over what Karen Hinkley has to repent over…is it being a woman? I also explain what I think would be repentance and an apology that would be amazing that could help TVC out.
The first of two parts in analyzing The Village Church’s apology to Karen Hinkley. But first a primer on what is forgiveness? What is repentance? Illustrating with some examples of forgiveness so that a common understanding can be relayed when it comes to forgiveness. Plus I also draw from my experience in seeking forgiveness from 140 people. In my next post the letter that The Village Church Elders released will be dissected. Continue reading
