The Lutheran vocation is to be a friend of grace; and since the 16th century Lutheran systematic theology has built upon a foundation of grace. Two apparent barriers to grace need addressing. First, doubt in the form of agnosticism and atheism provides a metaphysical argument against God’s existence. Second, evil and suffering provide a moral argument against God’s existence. From a Lutheran point of view the question of God’s graciousness takes precedence over God’s existence.
