2015 The Wondering Eagle in Review: The Top Posts, Statistics and Feedback; In the End All I Wanted is Peace with Andrew White

An overview of The Wondering Eagle for 2015. The end results…181 posts and 54,000 people who have read. The role that this blog played in The Village Church scandal and what is happening behind the scenes. Also a review of the top posts and my favorite articles that I want to highlight. Eagle is ready for 2016 and it is shaping to be a very busy year. This blog arose out of pain from a false accusation from a Care Group Leader at Eric Simmon’s Redeemer Arlington in the Washington, D.C. area. If individuals have concerns over it, they can approach Redeemer and Andrew White ultimately….in the end all I wanted is peace. Continue reading

When it Comes to C. J. Mahaney; What the Evangelical Christian Church can Learn from Deep Throat and Watergate

It started out as an unusual burglary in the Democratic National Committee on June 17, 1972. Deep Throat an inside Washington Post source in the movie “All The President’s Men,” had advice to a young Bob Woodward. Follow the money. That phrase, “follow the money” holds as true today as it did in the Watergate docu-drama. In order to understand C.J. Mahaney and the extent of his corruption one needs to follow the money. Where does the money trail lead to? Who did C.J. Mahaney give money to? Mark Dever? Kevin DeYoung? D.A. Carson? Justin Taylor? These are questions going on in my mind that I would like to ask. There is much the evangelical church can learn from Deep Throat and Watergate. Continue reading

95 Reasons Why we Need a New Reformation

After some of the feedback I have received I decided to take the 95 reasons alone and make them a stand alone post. Feel free to print and turn this in with your resignation from a Neo-Calvinist church. Or in the spirit of Martin Luther you can nail or tape  these to the door of your local church. For those that do so please take a picture and email me about the experience. I was out traveling this past weekend so this will fill until the next post. Also for those inquiring…it’s not an accident that Jonathan Leeman is listed four times. The corruption in 9 Marks justifies a new Reformation alone. Continue reading

Jon Bloom at Desiring God Writes on Reformation Day; My Response to Jon on Why we Need a New Reformation and my 95 Reasons

 

Some thoughts on Jon Bloom’s article at Desiring God on Reformation Day. My response in saying that Jon is writing about the corruption in himself, Sovereign Grace, and Neo-Calvinism. We need a new Reformation and I write my 95 reasons why.  Eagle also has a challenge…I challenge someone to nail (or tape) these 95 reasons to the door of Capital Hill Baptist Church or Sovereign Grace Louisville when either Mark Dever or CJ Mahaney is preaching. Their theological tyranny is coming to an end. Continue reading

What Al Mohler and Mark Dever can Learn from Marquette University’s Public Rebuke of Bill Cosby

On September 24, 2015 Marquette University rescinded an honorary doctorate that it gave to Bill Cosby in May 2013. Marquette felt like it had to act on the allegations and evidence that Bill Cosby was involved in obtaining narcotics to give to women for sex. Marquette’s behavior is a light in a dark world, and I would suggest that Al Mohler and Mark Dever could learn from Marquette in regards to the C.J. Mahaney controversy. C.J. Mahaney is unqualified to teach, let alone be an Elder. For individuals like Mark Dever and Al Mohler who are ethically bankrupt I suggest they learn from Marquette University’s behavior. Continue reading

An Open Letter to Warren Throckmorton

An open letter to Warren Throckmorton thanking him for his work on David Barton, Gospel for Asia, Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Seattle. I also touch on his work in homosexuality and how he changed his course. Warren is a blessing to the modern evangelical Christian church. His intellect and gift of discernment are desperately needed and his concern for people hurt in modern day evangelicalism is beautiful. In this letter Eagle hopes that Warren Throckmorton could start to research and shine the light on C.J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace and 9 Marks as defined by Jonathan Leeman and Mark Dever. Continue reading

Is CJ Mahaney the “Bill Cosby of Neo-Calvinism?” The Mahaney Conversation that Thabiti Anyabwile Needs to Have

A response to Thabiti Anyabwile’s recent article on “The Cosby Conversation We’re Still Not Having.” Eagle wants to know how Thabiti can pen such an article and then turn around and support CJ Mahaney and be silent on the alleged cover up of child sex abuse in Sovereign Grace. Too inconvenient Thabiti? Is the reason why you won’t challenge CJ Mahaney due to your firm belief in the sovereignty of the American dollar? Eagle has this one question….is CJ Mahaney the “Bill Cosby of Neo-Calvinism?” Continue reading

Has God Foreordained an Alleged Child Sex Abuse Cover up in Sovereign Grace Ministries/Churches? Is that why CJ Mahaney is so Sacred?

Eagle’s response to CJ Mahaney resuming preaching at T4G. Why has a man who has allegedly engaged in blackmail and the alleged cover up of child sex abuse even a pastor let alone teaching? Eagle is honestly wondering…how much money has CJ Mahaney thrown around? Has God foreordained alleged child sex abuse in Sovereign Grace? Is that why CJ so valuable? Since CJ is going to be coddled by so many, Eagle is wondering….why did the Protestant Reformation even occur? Can someone explain this to me? Continue reading
