The crises of values and the sake of man: secularism and relativism
Value > The crises of values and the sake of man
While secularism alienates from God, relativism diminishes the moral norm and its values to deny that an act can be illicit in itself.
Producing and consuming, getting pleasures become cults which ignore the soul and reduce the sense of sin down to what offends man, losing roots, aims and the possibility to unravel mysteries about himself, disavowing his responsibility and ability to act and sin.
Loosing destiny and responsibility, the individual loses sensitiveness to the ultimate things, finds only personalpurgatories or hells, no longer threatening or scaring, in the search for consumerist paradises to enjoy earthly goods.
