Constructivist epistemology Social constructivism holds that truth is constructed by social processes, is historically and culturally specific, and that it is in part shaped through the power struggles within a community. Constructivism views all of our knowledge as "constructed," because it does not reflect any external "transcendent" realities as a pure correspondence theory might hold. Rather, perceptions of truth are viewed as contingent on convention, human perception, and social experience.
Truth, even in the church, seems to be in short supply. There are thousands of different denominations in the world, all of which teach what they say is truth. There are dozens of churches with the name Lutheran, which teach conflicting doctrine, but all claim they are teaching the truth.
Within our own confession, Lutheran Church-Canada, we have conflicting doctrines being taught in various places, and everyone claims to be teaching the truth. It is easy to become indifferent about doctrine.
It is easy to stop caring about what is true and what is not. You cannot set yourself free from sin. You cannot set yourself free from sin because sin is stronger than you are. You cannot simply choose the good and avoid the evil.
You do not have free will. Your flesh is corrupted by sin and has every sinful inclination. How do you know this?
Only the truth will set you free. What truth is that? The truth that if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Only if the Son sets you free from sin, will you be free. Only if the Son sets you free from death and from the power of the devil, will you be free. The Son has set you free from sin. He fulfilled your obligations under the Law that you are unable to do, and He did them.
He fulfilled the Law for you in thought, word, and deed. He took your sin onto Himself and took your guilt, your shame, your punishment. He has thus set you free from sin.

The Son has set you free from death. He suffered and died for you, so that you will not die eternally, but will live eternally. His cross meant suffering and death for Him, but eternal life for you.
He has thus set you free from death. The Son has set you free from the power of the devil. His mouth has been stopped. Hebrews two tells us that through His death, the Son has destroyed the one who has power over death, that is the devil, and delivered all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery 2: Thus, you are not a slave, but a son.
The slave does not remain in the house forever, the son remains forever. Thus, you will remain forever with God as a son, and the Son, Jesus Christ, has set you free from the power of the devil. This is the truth that sets you free. This is the truth that incited the Reformation; the truth which Luther taught and for which he was willing to die by the hand of the pope.
We believe it because God teaches this. Thus, it is not an opinion or a feeling. We can say we know the truth. But there are no maybes.
There is no uncertainty. Where have I followed the world in my thinking?May 10, · The truth can set you free, but when it comes, it's more like a wrecking-ball than a holy beam of illumination.
