Was Jesus Just Wasting His Time?

Jesus died on the cross for our sins.

In modern, American culture, "sin" is defined subjectively just like "truth" is. I have my truth and you have your truth, so I have my definition of sin and you have yours. As President Obama said, for each of us, sin is being out of alignment with our individual values.

Nothing the Nazi regime did was out of alignment with Hitler's values, ergo, Hitler didn't sin.

If Hitler didn't sin, then I certainly haven't either, save for some very minor exceptions like when I looked at porn when I was 15 or drank too much last weekend or spread gossip about someone.

Jesus, therefore, died for those little sins. In essence, He paid my parking tickets.

Mass is the celebration of Jesus dying to pay our parking tickets. No wonder no one goes any more.
Without objective reality and rational thought, what is the purpose of the Catholic Church?
