Objective Truth, Why?

What keeps making me pulling me back out of secularism to Roman Catholicism?  This pretty much sums it up and I was having this two day interaction on twitter and when this person said there is no truth, truth is a myth, it really threw me and I asked questions.  If there is no truth, no objective truth I asked then why should we have laws, Constitutions, why not let everyone prostitute themselves, traffickers traffic, people steal, rape, after all no harm, and if there is no truth then there can’t be harm inflicted and if there is not harm inflicted then no need for law, and order, or consequences.  They were in total shock that I would say such a thing, of course there is right and wrong, has to be law and order.  I pointed out, if there is no body of authority to put forth the parameters of right or wrong, of boundaries etc.. how do you know what is right or wrong, what boundaries are sacred and healthy, wise.

Without objective truth than truth can change with with the wind and that is one thing that is a flaw in the Protestant world, Church, there is no singular, clear body of Cannon Law and Truth. One of the reasons I am pulled to go back to the Roman Catholic faith, it’s that there is clarity because the Church studies the Bible from various points and also works with the sciences integrated with philosophy and theology.  It’s not Sola Scriptura, but a truly holistic approach.  This Pinetrest  image summarizes why I am pulled back to the Catholic faith.  If only my exhausting allergies would let up I could get to church and Legion of Mary meetings. 

Shalom and Amen
