revised According to reformed theology, why are certain important doctrines not “obvious”? [i.e. why does the Westminister Confession even exist?]

comment Besides works versus grace and indulgences, what were the external practices of the Catholics that offended so many reformers?
Just a suggestion - would it be worth doing this with a community wiki answer? I can think of several more issues over and above the ones in jcohen79's excellent answer.

What do you mean by 'external practices'? The divisions of the Reformation were largely doctrinal. Do they count? How about Latin versus common language? Is the sale of indulgences an 'external practice'?

comment What is the 'Book of David'?
Here is probably a good place to start (that's the English - you can select other languages). Or any Bible will contain it.

I would prefer it if you removed your comment above, since it is wrong and somewhat accusatory.

comment Do Paul's and Jesus' use of epithets and culturally-harsh criticisms mandate/approve our own?
In the passage you refer to, Paul does not call Peter 'effectively a Gentile' - he says he lives like a Gentile. It's also very important to note that 'Gentile' is not an insult in this context - Paul has spent a lot of time arguing that Gentiles should not be looked down on.

"Hypocrite" "accursed" and "arrogant" may be negative words, but they are not 'cuss words' by any definition. Epithets are not always negative.

@tunmise_fashipe Strictly the answer to your question is: No we can't emulate this. Because there is no longer a Jewish temple to cleanse. Maybe you should give a more specific example of what you are asking about?
