Is Neo-Calvinism Creating Mini Popes and a Misapplication of Scripture?

A comment by Daniel Roueche at Nate Sparks Facebook page leads to this quick and brief post. Its an honest question about how sustainable is Neo-Calvinist application of  theology in the end? What is its legacy for abuse, poor theology, and in the process creating a mini-Rome? I’ll let you guys discuss this below. Another post is going up later today. Continue reading

Darrin Patrick is Removed from The Journey in St. Louis Amidst Questions; My Main Question…Will One of the Key Charges Also Be Applied to Matt Chandler?

Darrin Patrick is removed from The Journey in St. Louis. The lack of transparency in the situation raises deep questions and points to continued systemic and systematic issues in the Acts 29 network. Plus will one of the charges leveled against Patrick be applied to Matt Chandler? These are my unique thoughts and also a shout out if people trapped in The Journey and need a platform this blog will give them one. Continue reading

Re-Running a Post for T4G: 9 Marks: What is it? How Mark Dever Undermined it and Made it Worthless (Post 2 of 2)

What are 9 Marks of a Healthy Church from Mark Dever of Capital Hill Baptist? My interest in 9 Marks coming from a person who was formerly involved in the Evangelical Free Church of America. The story of CJ Mahaney and how he fled in his corruption from Covenant Life Church (CLC) in Gaithersburg, Maryland by taking shelter at Capital Hill Baptist Church. How Mark Dever undermined and violated most of the 9 Marks in taking him in, and affirming his sin in his run away church plant in Louisville. Also touches on the emerging of a new caste system and how pew sitters are now the new “Dalits” Continue reading

An Open Letter to Mark Dever (Post 1 of 2)

An open letter to Mark Dever exploring his scandalous history and his support for C.J. Mahaney. This also examines a classic question from the infamous McCarthy hearings as applied to Mark Dever. Plus is the reason why Mark Dever supports C.J. Mahaney allegedly due to the amount of money he has received or is he afraid that he could be blackmailed as well, just like Larry Tomczak? These are just my exceptionally blunt thoughts. Continue reading

New details and a new scandal emerged from Covenant Life Church and the question that needs to be asked of C.J. Mahaney about Larry Caffery is the following: What did C.J. Mahaney know and when did he know it? Continue reading

C.J. Mahaney Preaching at T4G? My Response Based Off Charlie Chaplain’s Mocking of Adolf Hitler in “The Great Dictator”

Today’s post is my response to C.J. Mahaney resuming preaching at T4G. This post is meant to mock Mahaney and its inspired by one of the greatest movies of satire that was made. When the Nazis put Charlie Chaplain on a death list in the 1930’s he responded by making a movie, “The Great Dictator” that mocked Adolf Hitler. This is an attempt to capitalize on the final scene of the movie and sneer C.J. Mahaney. I want to be crystal clear that I am not drawing any comparisons between Adolf Hitler and C.J. Mahaney. Today’s post is an attempt at parody.

Why Write about Church Corruption, Systemic and Systematic Issues? Lessons from the Creation of the National Park Service in 1916

The National Park Service turns 100 this month. Over a century ago a number of people had the vision, and drive to preserve national parks. They ran into difficulty, and went against the culture at the time. In time they convinced others that places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and others deserved protection. Religious bloggers are similar in that we love the church too much to keep it as is. We love the church and write and endure difficulty so that others will not. We write so that a person can attend an Evangelical Free Church or Southern Baptist Church in 2050 and worship in peace. Continue reading
