I am Morpheus. Do you want to Know Truth? Will you Choose the Blue or the Red Pill? Are you Prepared to Know How Deep the Rabbit Hole Goes?

As we start 2018 a scene from the classic movie The Matrix is how the year will be kicked off. If you are looking for truth you will find it here. You have two options before you…the blue pill that will allow you to return to your Pollyanna view of Evangelical Christianity. Or the red pill which will reveal to you how deep the rabbit hole goes and the corruption and issues which exist in Evangelical Christianity. What will you choose? 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

Is Curt Romig and First Free Wichita Exporting Another 9 Marks Church to the United Arab Emirates?

First Free Wichita,  a 9 Marks Evangelical Free Church in Wichita, Kansas, is apparently sending Curt Romig to plant a church in Abu Dhabi. June is missions month at First Free and has Mack Stiles coming to speak to this Evangelical Free on June 11, 2017. I would like to know if John Folmar’s United Christian Church Dubai is involved in this new plant, as I believe it is. 9 Marks is a deeply troubled system and today’s post notifies both Curt Roming and First Free Wichita that I will be writing about this troubled 9 Marks export to the United Arab Emirates.  Continue reading

Does the Christian Community in Pakistan Need Mark Dever’s 9 Marks?

An article at 9 Marks about church planting and conversion in Pakistan drives this post at The Wondering Eagle. My question is the following…is 9 Marks with its culture of membership covenants going to aid and empower Islamic Radicals and hurt the Christian church? Does the Christian community in Pakistan need 9 Marks? Finally is Mark Dever the Neo-Calvinist Charlie Wilson who drives a program but doesn’t consider the end results or harm in a foreign country?

How the Internet Helps Heal and Bring People Together

How the internet helps heal and how those hurt by the church connect and reach out to each other. This looks at the role social media plays in totalitarian churches and how I realized this in writing about Steve Estes Community Evangelical Free Church in  Elverson, Pennsylvania. Also if you were hurt by the church you are not alone, and you will heal in your own way in your own time. Each person is different. Continue reading

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

I love you guys! 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

Eagle suggests that amidst a new Cold War, a new Berlin Wall exists. A new form of the Iron Curtain is rising out of CHBC that is descending on Christendom. This is some analysis on issues with Neo-Calvinist view of membership. Continue reading
