I’m a member of Redeemer Church in Cambridge, and a contributor to The Confessing Baptist.

I subscribe to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689 as an accurate and helpful summary of the doctrines taught in Scripture. My other theological views can be generally described as follows:

Apologetics: Scripturalist, Presuppositionalist
Creation: Literal 6-day, Young Earth, with appreciation for the theological observations of Literary Framework theologians
Epistemology: Scripturalist, Clarkian, The Bible Alone is the Word of God
Eschatology: Realized Millennialist (“Amillennialist”), Partial (Orthodox) Preterist
Textual Theory: Majority Text
Origin of Souls: Traducianist

  1. I’m excessively amused that there’s another Patrick McWilliams floating around in the Reformed world. Thank goodness I don’t go by my first name; that could be confusing.

  2. Under RESOURCES I see that you list the NETBible.
    What is you position on the Word of God, seeing that NET is very eclectic?

  3. Hi Louis,

    I don’t like the NET translation very much, but the website is very handy as a research/reference tool. Its concordance feature has saved me a lot of page-flipping when pressed for time! As far as my position on God’s Word, I share the same high regard for Scripture as the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (1689), Chapter I. I also hold a Majority Text view of the New Testament texts.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I’m impressed by (and in agreement with) your theological views. It is rare to find a fellow Calvinistic Credobaptist who is also a fan of Robbins and Clark. I’m even happy with your eschatology. I have ventured around your site and do like your descriptions of the applicability of the OT law today (and your understanding of theonomy– Even Robbins, who railed against Bahnsen and North, like the term “theonomy”).

    I like to say that apologetically, I am a fan of Bahnsen and his method (especially against Stein in their debate) and epistemologically I am a Clarkian Scripturalist.

    I run ReformedLibertarian.com and have used your site on occasion (when describing the basis of law and economics) while I catch up with producing the same amount of content that you have worked hard to build.

    I hope to be around this site more.

  5. I completely forgot that I had written this comment last year. I suppose I ought to note that I’m less a fan of Bahnsen’s method now. Such a position was held while I was on the bridge from Van Til to Clark. Good times.
