Is Protestantism distantly related to relativism? I mean if there is no infallible interpreter of truth, will it lead to multiple versions of truth? Maybe I should ask, is Protestantism more vulnerable to relativism than is Catholicism? No disrespect intended towards Protestants. I think they’ve contributed a great deal to the Christian causes. I appoligize for my title, but I imagine it does attract attention.
There could be an irony here considering there seems to be more liberal Catholics than there are liberal Protestants. I’m using liberal here to mean acceptance of moral relativism. Not to mention Protestants seem to be putting on more of an assault on relativism than us Catholics.
Could it be that the Catholic Church has been cowed by all the slanderous accusations made against it? If it’s afraid to speak the truth, how can it lead Catholics into the truth?
Or could it be the opposite? As the world loses touch with the truth, the greatest source of apostolic truth becomes more archaic by the minute - that is to the deceived masses - so nobody listens?
Fortunately, I think young Catholics are becoming more bold in defending the truth.
I’m just curious about peoples thoughts on this.
