I need help! I’ve run across a friend who says he travels “light” theologically. “As long as you love Jesus,” he’s happy. He accepts a Sacramental system can be right. He thinks the Catholic Church is right on so many issues – even watches EWTN and loves Father Benedict Groeschel! He was raised Protestant and remains so because he thinks that there is truth in all religious structures and he’s comfortable, tolerant, non-judgmental and just wants to love his neighbor in his own way and is quite happy with you loving your neighbor in your way!
Here’s an article he read recently and thinks it describes him totally. I think it describes me, too, to a point but I can’t quite put my finger on why it’s “off.” It’s a new idea of “church” that smacks of New Age and Moral Relativism but I’m not exactly sure how or why.
I would appreciate your review of the article and your help in discerning how to talk to my friend.
