Rev. Jim Witteveen has some helpful reflections on the developments at Reformed Academic over the last week or so. I would add that I find it curious that some seem to think our tradition begins with Calvin and then skips over to Bavinck, as if nothing good happened in Reformed theology during the intervening period.  I find it even more curious that somebody like Cornelius VanTil, who had solid Afscheiding (Secession) credentials, fails to meet the criteria for being part of our tradition, especially since he was so indebted to Bavinck (as was Louis Berkhof).
