It’s been really bad before, y’all. Going way back hundreds of years prior to the days of Jesus:
Jeremiah 2:8 Â The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit
And even after Jesus and the apostles showed us the true way:
Revelation 2:1-5 Â To the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; I know your works, and your labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hasve found them liars: And have borne, and hast patience, and for my nameâ€™s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Brothers and sisters, let us not be weary in well doing. Rather, let us exalt and obey our King in everything.
The darker the hour, the brighter the Light shines.
