We need to BE ACCOUNTABLE to God by being accountable to godly Christians. The spiritual-sounding phrase "I am answerable only to God" may be a subtle excuse for not answering to anyone, including God!



Charles Colson, one of President Nixon’s closest aides during the Watergate coverup, became a Christian. In an article titled "The Problem of Power," he wrote, "Christians need to hold one another accountable. Although I know intellectually how vulnerable I am to pride and power, I am the last one to know when I succumb to their seduction. That’s why spiritual lone rangers are so dangerous--and why we must depend on trusted brothers and sisters who love us enough to tell us the truth."
