Relativism

Relativism is the most deceitful contemporary philosophy. Pope Benedict XVI commented: “Relativism, which considers all opinions true even if they are contradictory, is the greatest problem of our time.”

Relativism is the theory of no absolute truths — all truth is relative. This philosophy  is contradictory, because the idea nothing is absolute is an absolute statement.  Relativism is generally confined to the areas of morals and ethics, and can pave the path of most people  through life.  Relativists claim we cannot impose our morality on others, because they do not concede on right and wrong.

Relativism has no place for Wisdom, the ability to discern what is true, good, right, or lasting, and we need wisdom to walk with God.  The world often clouds our judgment, but the Church brings clarity, refreshing and liberating — truth to fulfill our lives — and we must seek it with humility and perseverance. Truth enlightens man’s intelligence and shapes his freedom to love God.
