    • I’ve had some people in the past that know who I am. They recognized my comments and situations described on other blogs. I learned this while reconciling with people. I’ve given a lot of information for people to know me…especially with prior churchs and ministries listed.

      • I’ve read your vicious expose’ on what you “think you know is best”. Helen of Troy thought she was “right” but she destroyed many lives. Hiding behind a the screen of digital media to spread more gossip and perhaps lies is NOT the Way of The Master- Jesus Christ. God knows the truth and the answer is being in a right relationship with God and praying for believers and unbelievers, NOT spreading your “grinding ax” to others.

      • Why thank you for the reply. I actually write this in my real name, and when I drove up to Elverson to meet with CEFC leaders they refused to talk (like Al Kimball did) and the others
        fled. Your IP address is from Phoenixville so I am guessing you are one of the family members of Stoltzfus or Estes clans. Truth is truth and that is just what it is.

  1. I find your comments on the sexual abuse issue a little odd… You happen to see a woman cussing and saying “they knew”, and you and your pastor come to the conclusion that it must be a family member of one of the victims. The incident happened three years or so years earlier and you determine that the church must be guilty of hiding something just by witnessing this? Who even knows who “they” is referring to. She could have found out her husband was having an affair or a boatload of other possible answers. You and your pastor are guilty of rushing to judge something you couldn’t know from that experience. It seems like you used it to put yourself in a story that you otherwise wouldn’t have any first-hand experience. Very negligent. I came upon your story when searching about sexual abuse in church. Your blog now has lost credibility as far as I’m concerned. There are all kinds of abuse…you are abusing the facts to create a better story…

    • Lisa, the sexual abuse scandal at Elmbrook Church in Milwaukee was known and huge. The number of people sexually assaulted was a lot. People in the Milwaukee church community felt it in nearby congregations. I did not know it happened because I moved to Milwaukee from California in 2000. The church I was a member of took in a couple of families from the incident.

      Other than that I forgive you for rushing to judgment about me. I was relaying an experience that is what I was doing. In regards to credibility its clear to me that you came here with an axe to grind. And for that claim as well I forgive you. You are free to comment as you wish I just ask that you do not go after anyone, and play nicely.

      • It seems to me that “not going after people” only applies to others going after the Eagle. You certainly have positioned yourself as the keeper of the moral code and not subject to the same criticism as those you attack. It also seems to me that you are guilty of the same rush to judgement that you accuse Lisa of but have benevolently forgiven her. How truly big of you. It is not about doing God’s work, or a man on a humble journey, it is about the Eagle making a name for himself.

  2. Hey Eagle… glad to hear about your journey back to the cross of Christ… I’m absolutely convinced, when the Church does the right thing, exposing evil/abuse (all kinds, including spiritual, and abuse of power) and bringing justice on behalf of those harmed, that many more who have walked away from their Christian faith will take another look at it… we, the Church have failed in so many ways and have far too often covered up by operating in damage control instead of doing the right thing…

    I pray, that the Church will do what is right on behalf of those who have been abused/harmed by the Church leadership! for His glory… I’m convinced that God intended for His Church to fight evil, and instead the Church has aided and abetted it in far too many ways. So together brother, we fight the enemy and his evil ways, and He asks us to start with His house… God wants us to do it, because it is eternal and meaningful, and He wired us for meaningful purpose! (and He will help us)

    I love the Warrior’s prayer…

    When it’s all said and done, and I’m standing before God, I want to be there bloodied and exhausted, worn from the fight, having given my all. I want to place at Christ’s feet a notched but still razor sharp sword, a battered shield with the Kingdom emblem faded and dull for years of use, a breastplate of righteousness scarred with deep marks from where the enemy’s attacks deflected, a shield of faith, black from the burn marks of the quenched fiery darts of the enemy, a helmet fitted snugly to keep out any doubts of salvation, any doubts that I am serving the Lord of lords, boots resoled many times with the message of peace, and a belt of truth that is as strong as when I received it. And I will turn in my battle armor for a crown of gold/beauty, and garments of praise, made with the fine linen, the righteous acts of His saints, linen worthy of His Bride, and a new name given to me by my King of kings!

  3. Greetings Wondering Eagle,

    I applaud your efforts in seeking to give voice to those who have been disenfranchized (actually, worse, “abused” and “excommunicated”) by authoritarian leaders. Having spent a number of years in the Reformed Baptist world (Montville, NJ) and – after that – in other Presbyterian and Reformed circles, including the CREC (Douglas Wilson’s makeshift federation created in the 1990’s). I’ve come to see that not only are these abuse cases egregious examples of pastoral misconduct, but – in many cases – they are actually matters which grow directly out of the THEOLOGY ITSELF maintained in these settings.

    A recent example would be the cases of sexual abuse/statutory rape of a minor and pedophilia occurring at Doug Wilson’s “Christ Church” in Moscow, Idaho. In both instances, while the specific issue was not cover-up, what occurred involved the “leadership” of the church siding with abusers at the expense of both present and future victims. And of course, I commend your highlighting the grievous case of pastoral misconduct in the Elverson EV Free situation.

    Intrinsic to many of these sad cases are at least the following interrelated issues:

    1. Poor theology which conveys a distorted, authoritarian/controlling image of God (fatalistic, impersonalistic, more Zeus-like, than Christ-like, as it is only IN CHRIST that we see the true character of the Father, who dwells in an eternal communion of love and fellowship, with the Son, and the Spirit.

    2. Pastors/elders who reflect this in their own life and character, which is another way of saying, “men serving as elders who lack basic, elder maturity, and should therefore NOT be pastors/elders.

    3. The requiring of implicit faith or trust in the decision of elders, which conveys to congregants that they sustain a relationship to their elders similar to that of an infant or young child to his parents.

    4. Abuse – Abuse all around, faced by the most obvious victims, and then, on a corporate scale, as entire congregations (if they do not stand against it) become directly complicit in evil.

    5. Independency – No one is pastoring the pastors, who spuriously reason that “we are accountable to Christ, you are accountable to us.”

    Keep up the vital work you are doing brother.

    In Christ,

    Brian
