This blog is going to write about the Matt Chandler and Steve Timmis situation. But before I get into that I want to reflect on the issue of control inside Acts 29. From Hawaii, Washington, D.C., South Carolina, Virginia, and Missouri this blog has told and been aware of the issue of control at Acts 29 churches. This blog is equally concerned with organizations like the Sojourn Network that splintered off Acts 29 years ago having control issues as well. Control is in the DNA of the Acts 29 network and that is why it should be rejected. Continue reading
In order to understand evangelical Christian culture one should read, study and pay attention to the themes from George Orwell in his classic novels. The themes of corruption, totalitarianism, censorship, blind loyalty, and more are used to paint warning to society. Because remember comrade, while all animals are equal some like your pastor are more equal than others. Continue reading
Daniel Montgomery disappeared from Sojourn and to those on the outside many people had questions as to what happened to the Neo-Calvinist leader. Today’s The Wondering Eagle attempts to fill in the gaps and explain why he left Sojourn. Using internal documents that this blog obtained what happened to Daniel Montgomery is reminiscent of what happened with Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill Seattle, but only on a smaller scale. This blog would like to know why couldn’t Sojourn be transparent about Montgomery’s anger issues, bullying and more? Continue reading
The Wondering Eagle recently obtained the North Star Theological Vision for the Sojourn Network. This blog is preserving it due to how other material related to Daniel Montgomery has disappeared from the Sojourn Network. This blog is interested in any stories involving Jonah Sage’s Sojourn New Albany or any other Sojourn church. Continue reading
The Wondering Eagle is noticing that some Neo-Calvinist churches are starting to dis-engage from Twitter. Here in the Washington, D.C. area I noticed this with Justin Pearson’s Sojourn Fairfax and Jeff Hoenshell’s Harvest Bible Chapel Fairfax. Also the Sojourn Network out of Louisville, Kentucky encouraged its churches to quit social media. Continue reading
The Sojourn Network which is based out of Louisville, Kentucky allegedly uses Redemption Groups. Created at Mars Hill in Seattle, Mike Wilkerson still pushes these programs inside evangelicalism today. Given the disaster that Mars Hill became and the abuse that existed this blog believes that Sojourn Network using these groups is problematic and dangerous. This is a warning as to why someone should stay away from the Sojourn Network. Continue reading
This blog post is preserving the statement from the Great Commission Collective on the hiring of Dave Harvey as its president. Another post will offer some analysis of the situation. This statement needed to be saved. Continue reading
Over at Roll to Disbelieve, an atheist blog, they have a good discussion and article about authoritarianism. In light of the authoritarian issues inside Harvest Bible Chapel, Sovereign Grace and the late Mars Hill this article I believe is a good read. It will give a psychological understanding on James MacDonald’s behavior.
This is the final post for The Wondering Eagle for 2018. This article reviews the stories and situations covered in the year of 2018. From Acts 29, to the EFCA to the Sojourn Network, the atheist community and Harvest Bible Chapel. This is a wrap up of all the work this blog accomplished. Plus I discuss what is coming in 2019 as well.
This is an article that reflects on an older post from Mike Anderson who led The Resurgence at Mars Hill in Seattle. What do you do when religion leads you to places that are dark and to behaviors just as destructive as alcoholism or drug addiction? This also reflects on what I have seen in my own life.
