When you were a kid, did you ever have someone who was trying to annoy you keep asking you “why?” Why do you say that? Why do you do that? Why do you think that?....Why? If one asks enough “whys,” they finally get to the “Epistemological Question” – “How do we know what we know?” That is, what is the foundational authority for what you think and say and do….and believe? How one answers this question really determines all the rest! Lutheran Christians from the beginning answered this in a very straightforward and certain way. This is what we will look at today.
