Know your history. Return to the ancient paths. For the pilgrims that have gone before have left the path strewn with breadcrumbs to find your way back to the ways of your God. No, they were not perfect. No generation has been.
Come back to the simplicity of the gospel. My Son summed it up when He said to love Me and love others. Treat people the way you want to be treated. This needs to be demonstrated in My body first. For how will others know that you love Me if you do not obey My command to love one another? Therefore, lay down your life for the sake of your fellow man. Demonstrate the Kingdom of light by living a laid-down life. Return to the ancient paths and find life in Me alone.
Jeremiah 6:16 Expanded Bible (EXB)
This is what the Lord says:
“Stand ·where the roads cross [at the crossroads] and look. Ask where the ·old [eternal; enduring] way is [Deut. 32:7], where the good way is, and walk on it. If you do, you will find rest for ·yourselves [souls]. But they have said, ‘We will not ·walk on the good way [follow it].’
Proverbs 2:8-9 New Life Version (NLV)
8 He watches over the right way, and He keeps safe the way of those who belong to Him. 9 Then you will understand what is right and good, and right from wrong, and you will know what you should do.
Mark 12:30-31 Living Bible (TLB)
30 And you must love him with all your heart and soul and mind and strength.’
31 “The second is: ‘You must love others as much as yourself.’ No other commandments are greater than these.”
John 14:21 English Standard Version (ESV)
Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.
