There are several points in this discussion where Clark's position is misrepresented. Although it is true that Clark ended up in heresy (Nestorianism), it is a bit much that the discussion labels Clark as not Reformed. It seems to me that Clark was Reformed up until he went off into Nestorianism.

It really is ridiculous that this program is supposed to objectively give the views of both men. What they do instead is rip Clark apart. If the Reformed Forum were serious about being objective they would invite a genuine representative of Clark's position on the program--or at least someone more sympathetic to Clark's views.

I found their critique of Clark's view of the Trinity to be completely wrong. Also, Oliphint clearly didn't understand Clark's critique of Van Til's position whatsoever.
