Recently Carolyn McCulley tweeted about the Roy Moore situation in Alabama when she told Russell Moore to preach about churches being safe.  The Wondering Eagle would like to know when is Carolyn McCulley going to face C.J. Mahaney’s alleged cover up of child sex abuse in SGM? When will Jordan Kauflin sit down with his father Bob and ask him why he is enabling C.J. Mahaney? I am happy Carolyn cares about abuse, does it apply to the Sovereign Grace situation?  Continue reading

Roy Moore is involved in a deeply controversial Senate race in Alabama.

As the scandal grew many evangelicals dug in and reaffirmed their blind support of Roy Moore. Meanwhile Russell Moore from the Southern Baptist’s ERLC got involved in tearing apart Roy Moore’s evangelical defenders. Today’s post at The Wondering Eagle deals with the controversial Senate race in Alabama, evangelical Christianity’s culture wars,  the issue of child molestation, and national politics all clashing together.  Continue reading

Do You Want to Write? I Would like to Build a Diverse Independent Team that Can Write The Wondering Eagle

The Wondering Eagle would like to transition from a one person blog to a team that can write about a number of issues. Those issues include atheism, doubt, Neo-Calvinism, the EFCA, Mark Dever’s Capitol Hill Baptist Church and issues in evangelicalism. I would like to bring on a diverse set of people in time who would have freedom to publish what is on their mind. If you are interested please drop me a note and let’s figure out a way forward.  Continue reading

Recommended Reads: Russell Moore on Jesus Being Angry on White Supremacy; Plus Jayson Bradley on how if Pastors Aren’t Discussing Racism they Need to Turn Over the Microphone

Two recommended reads that are a response to the Neo-Nazi riot and demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia. Russell Moore writes an article for the Washington Post asking if the church is angry about white supremacy. Then a former pastor in Washington State writes about how pastors need to speak about racism. If they are not then they need to pass the microphone to someone else.  Continue reading

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

A Visit to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture; Plus Some Thoughts on Evangelical Christians and Racism

A visit to the newest Smithsonian brings about this personal reflection. This is an overview of the museum plus some thoughts on how Evangelical Christianity struggles with racism. From the origins to the SBC to the segregation of churches today, Evangelical Christians are haunted by the issue of race. However, is the greatest indicator of how Evangelical Christians struggle with racism comes with their embrace and strong support for Donald Trump? After all many evangelicals can live their fears or their hate through Trump, and that has become a major stain on the church in the United States.  Continue reading

An Open Letter to Russell Moore

This is an open letter to Russell Moore of the ERLC. The Wondering Eagle despite disagreement with Russell Moore on Neo-Calvinism, fully supports him in his efforts to speak boldly. This is an overview of the Southern Baptist Convention’s (SBC) racist history and how Donald Trump brought out the worst of the SBC. Russell Moore is dealing with both that and the cognitive dissonance of Donald Trump voters. The SBC needs a leader, and visionary – not an ass kisser who will kiss Donald Trump’s ass. For younger people like myself Russell Moore is a source of deep hope in many ways.  Continue reading

How can John Piper be Correct on Donald Trump Being UnQualified for the Presidency, and Yet Believe C.J. Mahaney is Fit to Lead?

On the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration John Piper writes a penetrating article at Desiring God on how the new President is unqualified to lead. He points out his lack of leadership, his scandalous past that he drags with him into the White House among other issues. Yet there is a problem with John Piper’s article. How can he be spot on about Donald Trump and yet still defend C.J. Mahaney and say he is qualified to lead when he doesn’t met the qualifications of elder? This is going to be a rare time here at The Wondering Eagle where I look at both issues and also state that John Piper has a lot of truth in regards to the 45th President. Continue reading

Why The Wondering Eagle is Supporting Russell Moore and his Criticism of Donald Trump and Calling on Him to Stand Strong; Plus Hemant Mehta Gets Involved

A look at the issue with Russell Moore and his criticism of Donald Trump during the Presidential campaign. This is looking at the way part of the Southern Baptist Convention is reacting to Moore and also Hemant Mehta weighs in on this issue. This blog post is a conscious decision from the depths of my soul to tell the Christian church you can not be outraged about abuse in Sovereign Grace and other organizations while then dismiss allegations of abuse by Donald Trump. Today The Wondering Eagle is standing alongside Russell Moore and looks at him as being a beacon of light in the Southern Baptist Convention. Continue reading
