An Open Letter to Andrew Hoffman (Multiplication Catalyst for ECFA’s Western District on Why Its Time to Admit that the Neo-Calvinist Movement Has Failed…)

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 Write about Church Corruption, Systemic and Systematic Issues? Lessons from the Creation of the National Park Service in 1916

The National Park Service turns 100 this month. Over a century ago a number of people had the vision, and drive to preserve national parks. They ran into difficulty, and went against the culture at the time. In time they convinced others that places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and others deserved protection. Religious bloggers are similar in that we love the church too much to keep it as is. We love the church and write and endure difficulty so that others will not. We write so that a person can attend an Evangelical Free Church or Southern Baptist Church in 2050 and worship in peace. Continue reading

2015 The Wondering Eagle in Review: The Top Posts, Statistics and Feedback; In the End All I Wanted is Peace with Andrew White

An overview of The Wondering Eagle for 2015. The end results…181 posts and 54,000 people who have read. The role that this blog played in The Village Church scandal and what is happening behind the scenes. Also a review of the top posts and my favorite articles that I want to highlight.

If individuals have concerns over it, they can approach Redeemer and Andrew White ultimately….in the end all I wanted is peace. Continue reading

95 Reasons Why we Need a New Reformation

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

An Open Letter to Warren Throckmorton

An open letter to Warren Throckmorton thanking him for his work on David Barton, Gospel for Asia, Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Seattle. I also touch on his work in homosexuality and how he changed his course. Warren is a blessing to the modern evangelical Christian church. His intellect and gift of discernment are desperately needed and his concern for people hurt in modern day evangelicalism is beautiful. In this letter Eagle hopes that Warren Throckmorton could start to research and shine the light on C.J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace and 9 Marks as defined by Jonathan Leeman and Mark Dever. Continue reading

In a Pit with a Lion, Mark Batterson and National Community Church; A Personal Reflection

I also draw attention to what NCC does exceedingly well and make suggestions to improve it. I also discuss how I approached Mark Batterson for forgiveness as I was trying to recover from a false accusation from a Care Group Leader from Redeemer Arlington. Continue reading

Has God Foreordained an Alleged Child Sex Abuse Cover up in Sovereign Grace Ministries/Churches? Is that why CJ Mahaney is so Sacred?

Eagle’s response to CJ Mahaney resuming preaching at T4G. Why has a man who has allegedly engaged in blackmail and the alleged cover up of child sex abuse even a pastor let alone teaching? Eagle is honestly wondering…how much money has CJ Mahaney thrown around? Has God foreordained alleged child sex abuse in Sovereign Grace? Is that why CJ so valuable? Since CJ is going to be coddled by so many, Eagle is wondering….why did the Protestant Reformation even occur? Can someone explain this to me? Continue reading
