The Persecuted Church and The Crisis of Faith
It is not easy being Catholic or even Christian in general in the modern world. In a culture that undermines Christian values such as the social acceptance of same sex “marriage”, abortion, euthanasia, a secularized society absent from God’s moral laws, and much more. Most people have given in to a great deal of theological, philosophical and moral errors, such as the belief in moral relativism; The belief that there is no such thing as absolute truth (a logical contradiction). Atheism, secular humanism, secularism, materialism, hedonism, and a number of other dangerous ideologies have all negatively affected society.
It is not just from the outside, but from the inside as well. There is a crisis going on called the crisis of faith, which Pope Benedict XVI once stated. The quality of Catholic catechism has gone down, and most people don’t know solid traditional Catholic teaching. Most Catholics sadly don’t know scripture either. Many Catholics have also sadly fallen into modernism; the belief that truth is relative and changes with the times. Lastly the call to the religious life and the priesthood has also greatly declined.
