Considering Ravi Zacharias and his Passing. Do Evangelical Leaders Think of Death and Funerals? Or are the Pewsitters the Only Ones Guilted Regularly About Death?

Ravi Zacharias has died and with his death evangelicals are singing his praises. Evangelical scandal has changed and now follows people to the grave where their dishonesty remains. Dishonest in life means being dishonest in death. When Jesus says, “Well done good and faith servant” what do you do when evangelicals embrace a man who was dishonest about his education and engaged in sexting during an emotional affair with a married woman? Evangelicals ignore scandal and this blog dealt with this issue when David Powlison of Christian Counseling and Education Foundation died. But can you imagine when the funerals are held for Mark Driscoll, C.J. Mahaney, and James MacDonald one day how much lying will take place? Continue reading

How Should David Powlison of the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation Be Remembered?

David Powlison of the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation (CCEF) died on Friday June 7, 2019 in Glenside, Pennsylvania. David Powlison was a giant in the Biblical Counseling movement. His organization worked closely with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors and influenced evangelical thought on counseling.  In addition CCEF supported and worked closely with Sovereign Grace Ministries. This blog wrote about how CCEF turned away an alleged domestic abuse victim who was allegedly almost killed in a domestic abuse situation from a corrupt Evangelical Free Church in Pennsylvania. In the end when you see what David Powlison supported and the corrupt ministries he championed its this blog’s contention that David Powlison is a solid example of what a wasted life looks like.

Steve Estes’ Brick Lane Community Church in Elverson, Pennsylvania Joins 9 Marks

Brick Lane Community Church in Elverson, Pennsylvania joined 9 Marks in the past year. 9 Marks is the authoritarian ministry of Mark Dever and is known for its practice of church discipline. Steve Estes is best remembered for practicing church discipline on an alleged domestic abuse victim who knows she could be dead. In the opinion of The Wondering Eagle Brick Lane will be a nice fit for 9 Marks.  Continue reading

An Open Letter to Merle Stoltzfus (Formerly Community Evangelical Free in Elverson, Now Brick Lane Community Church

This is an open letter to Merle Stoltzfus of Brick Lane Community Church, formerly Community Evangelical Free Church of Elverson, Pennsylvania. This communicates my thoughts about Merle. From his own small group to other small groups, Elverson and the greater EFCA at the time, Merle has quite an anger problem and its my understanding that a number of Stoltzufs children were embarrassed over how Merle worked to protect Brock. This is a letter I have been meaning to do for a long time.  Continue reading

Does Christian Counseling & Education Foundation Take Domestic Abuse Seriously? Why is Steve Estes Still on the Board of Directors?

Steve Estes is still on the board of directors of Christian Counseling & Education Foundation (CCEF.) I remain baffled after everything that took place in Elverson, Pennsylvania that he would still be on the board. This blog would like to ask if CCEF takes domestic abuse seriously? If they did then they would remove Steve Estes from the organization and see that he is unfit to serve.  Continue reading

Publishing a Comment that was Not Approved on Greg Strand’s EFCA Post on the “Significance of Silence”

The Wondering Eagle is writing about an EFCA church hijacking by Neo-Calvinists outside Minneapolis in the North Central District. Linda left a comment on Greg Strand’s blog post about the “Significance of Silence” and the comment never saw the light of day. I honestly hope this is an accident or that the comment went into the spam folder. Linda tried to reach out of the EFCA regarding her situation for some time. And most of the time the EFCA has mostly ignored her communications.  Continue reading
