comment According to reformed theology, why are certain important doctrines not “obvious”? [i.e. why does the Westminister Confession even exist?]
I don't understand the argument. I believe it's along the lines of: "The Bible is open to interpretation. Creeds exist to define how a certain group believes the Bible is to be interpreted." Question: "What is it about creeds that make them not open to interpretation? And why was the Bible not written in that way?"

comment How did Luther view relics, like the 'preserved head of John the Baptist'?
@Mike: Out of curiosity: what's triggering this deep analysis of Luther's views?

@Dougvj: I think many would agree that -- somehow -- Sin / Satan exists to glorify some attribute of God. What is interesting is the question of mechanics ... how ?

comment Why is Jesus at the center of everything
I grew up in a church where the teachings was much more focused on "human morality / being a nice person / being the type of person that others would want to be around => converting them to Christ." When I started reading reformed theology -- it was quite a shock, where the focus was almost entirely on the attributes of God.

Wait ... why would Jesus go preach to the spirits of the dead?

comment How many 'Books' never made it to the Bible (Old and New Testament)?
Dumb question on my part: when Luke wrote Luke, had Paul been converted?
