Dear Ryan:  No, I don't have a specific article on the subject of continually

falling back into the world, but I do cover it throughout all of my writings.

We all "leave our first love" at some time or another.  God admonished the

Church at Ephesus, to REPENT of leaving their first love.

Most people only "play" at religion. Most Christians are what I call "religious

hobbyists."  If God is truly calling you to be one of the chosen, then one day you

will get serious and stop vacillating back and forth.  Sometimes we just need to grow

up. There are too many lusts of youth for young people to be very serious about

serving God.

I did the same thing. I too left my First Love, and went back into the world. I knew

I did not have the power to resist lust. Only a miracle of God brought me out of this

world for the last time. I can't tell you when God will show you that it is enough,

and time for you to get serious about obeying God.

God be with you,

Ray
