Yes, it is horrible and the reason is, the Truth in fullness has been revealed to the world and for the most part rejected.
The world has rejected Truth, therefore God has allowed the world to believe in lies.
In the days of Noah, people were judged by what was then revealed to them, but today it is different because everything man needed to know has been revealed to us. The Gospel has been preached to the entire world.
God judges us by what He has given us and He has given us His all. His Precious Blood was shed, every drop upon this planet, no where else in the entire Universe has His Blood been shed. Yet, look at the world!
