It is not my responsibility to make individuals righteous and then good or happy.
You know that I can't redeem or sanctify even a little cockroach. No mere human tryin' to reform this sinner (me) saved me. And I've also foolishly tried to reform sinners and stiff non-biblical churches before—didn't work. Building relationship is important. I say appeal wisely and then bail on a sicko-church if they hold tightly to their sins. Find an imperfect, healthy one where you can be fed the Word n grow—none are perfect and life is short.
It is my business to wholeheartedly worship the Lord and to cooperate with Him in making myself good, and also to tactfully share the Gospel and make other people blessed if I can. For sure, as I follow Christ well and allow His Spirit to use me in serving them in areas that they really need and welcome. Jesus examples need-meeting and much more, so He's my focus and that's my business, duty, and responsibility. Believer, it's your biz as well. We all have a part to play so to speak.
Got an assurance of salvation inside? You my dear friend who are deeply loved, can indeed know beyond any shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life in Jesus Christ. That's His thang. So stop your wrong-doin's, turn, confess, and believe in Him now before you do another thing.
The Bible says, ".. if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."
