From Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill, to C.J. Mahaney’s Sovereign Grace to Jordan Kauflin’s Redeemer Arlington and an Air Force Captain I Knew, A Question that Must be Posed. Are Neo-Calvinists Modern Day Jonah’s in that All They Do is Flee?

There is one aspect to Neo-Calvinists that I have noticed. You can see this in the behavior of Mark Driscoll, C.J. Mahaney and an Air Force Captain from Jordan Kauflin’s Redeemer Arlington. All of them fled when they should have worked out their problems. All of them fled while believing in Biblical Manhood and in church discipline.

An Open Letter to Ryan Kwon (Acts 29 Pastor at Resonate Regarding Comments Made in a Gospel Coalition Article)

This is an open letter to Acts 29 pastor Ryan Kwon. This is a response to what Ryan says in an article in The Gospel Coalition about the demise of Mars Hill and Acts 29 eventually thriving.

Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra’s Horrific Article at The Gospel Coalition About How Acts 29 Thrived After Mars Hill Ignores Many of the Issues in the Troubled Network

Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra wrote a troubling article for The Gospel Coalition last December. She talks about how Acts 29 thrives and grew out of the Mars Hill implosion. In the article Sarah conveniently forgets a lot of issues about both Mark Driscoll and Acts 29. From forgetting that Driscoll stated that women are penis homes to Matt Chandler’s The Village Church attempting to a place a  women her annulled her marriage to a child pornography addict under church discipline.  Sarah is an example of what is possible when one ingests large sums of Kool Aid.  Continue reading

Doug Ponder Preaches on Fones, Feeds and Flashing Lights: A Sermon Coming from Inside the Bubble. This is a Review of this Expository Message from an Outsider

This past fall Remnant did a sermon series called Fones, Feeds and Flashing Lights. I listened to Doug Ponder preach a message about identity. This is my review of his message in both how I interpreted it and the problems with what Doug is saying. The point of this post is to get people to think critically about Remnant’s sermons and ask questions.  Continue reading
