Today we had fast and testimony meeting at church. One man expressed his concern that people, young and old, are having trouble staying faithful. He said every time he visits his hometown he hears of someone else who has fallen away from the church.
He talked about things he had learned from Tony Robbins, and said people change because they find a model, immerse themselves in the model, and revisit that model. People who fall away are looking at other models. I think this is true not just for church, but for things like fidelity in marriage.
He said we need to re-immerse ourselves in this model (the church) and avoid the others.
