Introductory Statement by the Publications Committee of the WRF Board of Directors: Dr. Clair Davis, an individual member of the WRF, has requested the posting on the WRF website of the signed statement by numerous individuals and a similar statement by the Session of New Life Presbyterian Church (PCA; Glenside, Pennsylvania) both affirming the belief that Dr. Doug Green, also an individual member of the WRF, is fully orthodox and that his teaching is consistent with the Westminster Standards. Westminster Theological Seminary, at which Dr. Green taught for many years and from which he was “honorably retired” in June of 2014, is an organizational member of the WRF.Add a comment

In Washington, Iowa, where I grew up, we had three Presbyterian churches: the big United Presbyterian with 900 people, my PCUSA with 350, and an Associated Presbyterian (Seceder) with about 60. There were 4 AP churches then in the USA, 2 around Pittsburgh, one in Kansas, and the one in Iowa.Add a comment

The controversy regarding the forced “retirement” of Westminster Theological Seminary Old Testament Professor Doug Green continues unabated.Add a comment
Let me start by confessing my relationship with Westminster Theological Seminary. I got a M. Div. from Westminster in 1993. Both Dr. Davis and Dr. Gaffin were my esteemed teachers. After that, I enrolled in her Ph. D. program (with Dr. Gaffin as my supervisor) while I pastored a church, got married and had 3 wonderful daughters.Add a comment
There is much that I appreciate and respect about Westminster Seminary’s recent announcement concerning the Board’s retirement of tenured Professor Douglas Green. They didn’t have to tell us anything, or they could have used “irreconcilable differences” language.Add a comment
I have been invited to respond to the observations of D. Clair Davis on the retirement of Professor Douglas J. Green, recently announced by the Board of Trustees of WTS. These observations could be responded to at several points. Here I limit myself to addressing just one, clearly central for him.Add a comment
I’m not totally sure what that means. I think it generally means, it’s not good enough to have the big picture straight, you need to look at its pieces too.Add a comment
Reformed people and their churches are struggling with very basic issues right now: 1) What is the gospel? 2) Is it forgiveness through justification? 3) Or is it through holiness as the Lord sanctifies us? Of course, it’s both but how? Is the Federal Vision helpful or harmful? How about N. T. Wright? Or Norman Shepherd?Add a comment

Theological training is becoming more impersonal than ever before. We can submit applications to institutions online and once enrolled we can submit our assignments online. Online theological courses offer immense scope to those seeking to upgrade their education.Add a comment
