WRF Board Member Dr. Kin Yip Louie Writes from Hong Kong to Provide a Response to the Davis/Gaffin Debate on Biblical Theology

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.

WRF Member Clair Davis Responds to Dick Gaffin's Comments About Doug Green's "Retirement"

 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.

WRF Member Clair Davis Offers Some Comments on the Controversy Surrounding WRF Member Doug Green

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?
