- Is it okay to talk about faith and trust in terms of knowing?
- How do we measure things that claim to be true?
- We both believe the God of the Bible is the one true God. Why do we believe these things and how do we know them?
- What about revelation?
- So, if you were chatting with a neighbor and they casually said to you, “How do you know anything” What might you say?
- Emotivism: My feelings are a reliable indicator of that which is true.
- Empiricism: Whatever I can touch, taste, see, and experience through my senses is true.
- Faith: Affirmation, affection, and allegiance.
- Revelation: The self-disclosure of God. God Himself is the sole and proper witness to himself. God has spoken in His word, the Bible, and it is a reliable testimony to who he is and his purposes for the world.
