Catholic Harbor of Faith and Morals presents an appropriate article for our times, Heresy of Indifferentism by Rev. Bertrand L. Conway, C.S.P. “A good man is bound to search for the revelation of God, once he begins to doubt about the validity of his own ethical and religious convictions. It is just as much a sin to deny the known truth or to be indifferent in its search, as to commit murder or adultery. This is a principle which the modern world has forgotten, but it will have to come back to it. It is a truth that the Catholic Church is ever trying to drive home to every heart and mind.” Be sure to read through to the end including the confronting quote of Pope Eugene IV from the Council of Florence, ex cathedra.
