With how Jonathan Leeman Writes about Biblical Conversion the Question Must be Asked, Does the Editor from 9 Marks Believe C.J. Mahaney Is a Christian?

One of the most read articles at the 9 Marks website deals with churches who do church discipline wrong. One point in Jonathan Leeman’s article led to a question at The Wondering Eagle. With how the 9 Marks editor describes Biblical conversion the question must be asked, is C.J. Mahaney a Christian? Especially in light of how he has continually fled? Also will a 9 Marks pastor like Garrett Kell or Mark Dever ever face church discipline? Finally how my unresolved conflict with Eric Simmons and Jordan Kauflin’s Redeemer Arlington shows that 9 Marks is a total failure and to be rejected.  Continue reading

The Strategic Role the EFCA can Play in Racial Healing; Plus Did the EFCA Allegedly Remove a Church from the Denomination that Had Ties to the White Supremacist Organization the League of the South?

One of the key issues of today is racism and in that area the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) is strategically poised to play a critical role in responding to that topic. My question is this, are they ready and do they realize their capability? In this area its The Wondering Eagle’s belief that Eddie Cole could bring a lot to the table based upon his experience at Salem Church in Staten Island, New York. Plus The Wondering Eagle would like to know, did the EFCA allegedly remove a church from the denomination that had ties to the White Supremacist organization known as  The League of the South?  If that happened this is a call for information as that should be documented and written about.

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

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
