Our ability to help others come unto Christ or return to Christ will largely be determined by the example we set through our own personal commitment to stay on the covenant path.
If our true desire is to rescue those we love, we ourselves must stay firmly with Christ by embracing His Church and the fulness of His gospel.
Elder John A. McCune, "Come unto Christ—Living as Latter-day Saints", General Conference, April 2020
"Do as I say, not as I do", is completely backwards, but it seems to be the prevailing attitude in society. In a society full of hypocrisy and double standards. How in the world does any of this mentality and thinking make any sense. I just don't understand it. The 2nd Amendment is a perfect example. To ensure the safety of the innocent, we're wanting to rid good, law abiding people of firearms, leaving firearms in the hands of only bad guys? That's going to make us safe? Then why don't we want to rid the world of vehicles? Or fatty foods? More people die from those means than by firearms.
Anyway, I digress.
Our mantra should be "Do as I do, not as I say".
Our priority should be to be a good person first. Treat others with love and respect. Be generous and compassionate. Live the golden rule. Try to be like Christ. Walk the path He walked. Get on the covenant path and stay there but keep moving forward along it.
Then, we can help others do the same. Whether we explicitly lift them and carry them, or whether we symbolically lift them and carry them by our example. That will help someone else way more than just telling them how they should be living. Show them how to live. Especially our younger generation.
So, let's got off the bandwagon, think for ourselves, do our own research, make our own educated decisions, take those decisions to the Lord, and go and live the best lives we all can.
