ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Westminster Seminary California - Resources - Faculty Testimony on Justification:: Westminster Seminary California

I was pleasantly surprised to see a pointed refutation of certain positions taken by Reformed Forum and WTS PA on the WTS CA site:

The Reformation doctrine of justification has undergone severe criticism in recent decades. Challenges have come from three different sources. First, a number of ecumenical discussions have offered more ambiguous expressions on justification than the Reformation doctrine in the interests of church unity and have implicitly rejected the Reformation teaching as too divisive. The statements "Evangelicals and Catholics Together" and "The Gift of Salvation" are examples of such ecumenical compromise. Second, some biblical scholars have argued that Luther and Calvin misunderstood what Paul was actually teaching and so constructed a false doctrine of justification. The so-called "New Perspective on Paul" offers such an argument. Third, some who claim to be Reformed suggest that too many Reformed people have a Lutheran view of justification and need to develop a distinctively Reformed view of justification.
