Something must be wrong with me.” These Christians see accountability as a crutch they shouldn’t need. If God can change my heart, they think, certainly he can do it without involving other people.
But what if accountability is actually one of God’s ordinary means to help us become more like Christ?
What if we were meant to treat accountability not as a last resort but as a lifestyle?
