In this video conversation, three youth ministers discuss accountability and how they use the Internet.
This is a great conversation for a number of reasons:
1. It brings up the importance of finding good accountability software. Pastor Joe mentioned that he uses X3watch, and Tim mentioned that he uses Covenant Eyes. It is great when someone chooses to be accountable on the Internet, no matter what product they use.
2. It brings up the importance of face-to-face accountability. Merely receiving a report of Internet activity is not the be-all and end-all of accountability. There are so many things accountability partners can have a conversation about.
3. It brings up how Internet accountability is a testimony to others. When others know you are willing to be vulnerable and open about your life, your failures, and your integrity, this helps to establish trust and authenticity with friends, church members, or a spouse.
