Reply:  Why do some people not daven 3 tefillos a day, not put on tefillin, not eat kosher, not shomer negia etc.
I have no idea, but I'm sure if they are Shomer Shabbos, they are good people and just not ready to take everything on right away. A Baal Teshuva who suddenly changes over night, makes it harder on the people around him. It takes time for people to change. We have no right to judge others for their weaknesses in Judaism. We should focus on their strengths to do the Mitzvot they are already doing, especially in this society. We surely can't say 'that person does this or that, so I will do the same'.
Every person has his own weaknesses and strengths and based on those traits you are given tests from Hashem. You can succeed or fail on your own. However you can never blame your failures on others. That would be form of denial which is dangerously unhealthy.
