Abraham Lincoln once said that the problem with the Internet is that you can’t trust everything you read thereon. He was absolutely right. It stands to reason, therefore, that you might want to know a little bit about this site and its contributors before you read too much.
This website is dedicated to providing theology that accords with Scripture, the Westminster Standards, and the Three Forms of Unity (and its contributors see no conflict between these three things). Both of us agree with the Westminster Standards and love reading theology that accords with them. We are quite emphatic, however, that you not take our word for it and instead read the works of men who undoubtedly embody this theology, especially the reformers and the Puritans.
I (David) have had more than a few arguments with people who think that they understand a complicated issue because they read a blog post about it. While we certainly intend to write blog posts that try to summarize the reformed position on various issues, we recognize that we are vastly understudied compared to men like Francis Turretin, and so we insist that you go and read their works. If you should ever find that we have wrongly presented the reformed perspective on something, we ask that you contact us so that we can correct it.
Besides the written content and the podcast, you will see us linking either positively or negatively to other content on the Internet and making brief comments (sometimes not unlike a hit-and-run) about how and why the content in question is good or bad. Lastly, we intend to publish many dank (a term borrowed from the Reformed Pub) memes so that you can rustle the jimmies (another term borrowed from the pub) of your non-Presbyterian friends. Hopefully, this will promote some helpful conversation over a pint or two.
About the Authors
This section is under construction, but for right now, we wanted to mention a few things. By way of credibility, Zak has a Bachelor’s degree in Bible and is slowly working on a Master’s degree at Whitefield Seminary. David has no degrees to speak of, but has taken 1.5 years of Bible and theology classes at an undergrad level. One day, he’d like to pursue a Master’s in theology of some sort, but for right now he just reads books on theology in his free time. Neither David nor Zak are ordained and anything they say here should carry far less weight than the words of your pastor and the pastors and theologians who wrote the works we reference.
Lastly, it should be noted that David works for Olive Tree Bible Software, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing. Since we recommend a lot of books, you should be aware that neither David nor Zak are being paid for their recommendations and that this is the work of two individuals whose opinion don’t necessarily reflect those of Olive Tree or HarperCollins. Lawyers can get upset when David works on sites that reference books and he doesn’t mention where he works, for some reason.
