    Why do you think so? And for what country?

    In the 1800s in the United States, some major cults were established by Freemasons (who were false prophets): Joseph Smith's Mormonism (aka Latter-Day Saints), Charles Taze Russell's Jehovah's Witnesses (aka Watchtower Bible & Tract Society), Mary Baker Eddy's Christian Science religion, Ellen G. White's Seventh Day Adventism

    It seems like there was a lot of upheaval, conflict, and confusion. The creation of so many cults and people flocking to them, shows that people were getting further away from sound doctrine in the culture. Even today, there is a lot of lukewarm preaching... I heard some preaching recently that set off red flags. In to many man-established 501c3 government-approved organizations, there is unGodly compromise, the leaven of errors, and ecumenical ties to the Vatican. Early Christian groups in the United States were more astute, though errors have existed throughout every generation.

    Considering that one could still die from things like simple cuts and tooth infections, I don't think it was much better...

    Because they knew how to work, and spend time together as a family.
