As a baseline assumption, I believe that God has (overall) designed this world well; and that it is (in some essential way) 'fit for purpose'.
If this world was not fit-for-purpose, or if it becomes unfit at any time; then presumably God will bring it to an end! The fact that this has not yet happened, tells me that it remains fit-for-purpose - despite everything...
Considering that the world is so much worse for Christianity in 2022, in So Many ways; implies to me that the world must be much better for Christianity in other, and less obvious, ways.
Starting from here; I can speculate in what kind of ways this world - here-and-now - might serve God's purposes better than before.
In broad terms I assume that God has two main purposes for our mortal incarnation:
The first is salvation of as many souls as possible - which I understand to mean that Men will choose to follow Jesus Christ to eternal resurrected life in Heaven; and also that this choice happens and becomes effectual after biological death.
The final post-mortal choice of Heaven also entails the permanent (and irreversible) choice to live by Love, which also means to live eternally in harmony with God's will and purposes.
(Mortal Christians are, obviously, those who have made this choice while still alive biologically - but the decision only becomes irrevocable after death, at resurrection.)
With respect to this purpose of salvation; it certainly seems to me that the world is worse 'designed' than it used to be - a worse place than it used to be!
Serious Christianity has declined strongly over many recent decades (in terms of age-adjusted numbers and devoutness); and the Christian churches were devastated by the birdemic-excused events of 2020.
Or rather, the major churches revealed by their behaviour that their leadership, and many of their laity, were not serious about Christianity - and that the churches had (substantially) become 'just another' institutional 'front' for Satanically-allied mainstream totalitarian leftism.
So, from the quantitative point of view - the number of souls who are likely to be saved (that is, who will choose to follow Jesus); the world obviously seems to be a bad place, and getting worse.
Yet the world continues... So what may be the respects in which this is a better world in which to be Christian (i.e. 'better' from God's point of view)
Salvation is not God's only purpose for this mortal life across all the humans that have ever lived.
The divine function of this mortal life is also theosis, sanctification, divination, becoming more -like Jesus... or, as I understand it: our mortal lives are intended to be for learning lessons that will be of value in resurrected Heavenly life.
In a sense, this developmental process through mortal life can be understood as some combination of growing-up spiritually, and becoming more distinctively ourselves. And it is in these respects that modern Western life in 2022 offers significant advantages.
I believe that God desires for the inhabitants of Heaven each to be unique; each to make an unique contribution to ongoing creation.
And God also desires that at least some Men will choose to follow the path pioneered by Jesus Christ - the path to attaining the same level or degree of divinity as God the prime creator (which entails salvation - that is, the Man must, like Jesus, make an eternal commitment to live-by-Love in full creative harmony with God).
I think, in broad terms, that we can infer that Men of the past were able to achieve salvation in larger numbers, or a much higher proportion, than nowadays; but this was at the cost of each man being less individuated, less distinctive.
Earlier Christianity (and some forms nowadays) implicitly aim at a standard-Christian - there is a 'template' of the Christian life (or a few such templates, in a hierarchy), into which it is intended that each person shall strive to fit. This can most clearly be seen (and is best documented) for the 'Byzantium' of the eastern Roman Empire and the Catholicism of Medieval Europe.
There was a 'system of salvation' - which was probably very effective at bringing men to salvation; but I would regard this as, to a significant extent, also a system that prevented Men from attaining their highest possible levels of uniqueness.
The potential for individual learning and theosis was sacrificed to the group: quantitative salvation was maximized, but at the expense of making Christian 'clones' who were sub-optimally distinctive, under-developed in their uniqueness.
If this is accepted; I think we can see that someone who lives in 2022, And Yet becomes and remains a Christian; is likely to do so as a consequence of individual struggle against The System...
This including struggle against the standard 'Christian Church Systems' (which are now largely corrupted, and corrupting).
Therefore, I believe that while The World Today is worse at saving many souls; it is also better than any previous era at producing the kind of maximally grown-up and individually-distinctive Resurrected men that God wishes to be inhabitants of Heaven...
Individuals that perhaps have more to contribute to Heaven's creativity than was possible before?
It is in such a direction of grown-up-ness and unique-ness that I would look-for the Christian excellence of this modern life - and an explanation of why this world continues despite the apparent collapse of societies that support salvation in large numbers.
