ociety today places little value on accountability.  In todays culture there are no absolutes - nothing is right or wrong because everything depends on your perspective, your own personal value system.  Futher, it is "politically incorrect" to even suggest that any particular values system of moral code should be imposed on anyone.  Tolerance is the buzzword of the day - except when it comes to absolutes.

I find it disengenuous that society preaches and demands tolerance but is so intolerant when it comes to any kind of absolute or value system that requires accountability or responsibility for ones' actions.  Everyones' view of behaviour is to be valued and accepted, except of course a view that says ones' behaviour is sin.  No one wants to be told what to do or that they are behaving immorally.

Unfortunately, this idea accountability can sometimes creep into the church.  Pastors and others in church leadership constantly battle with unaccountability in people.  It is scriptural that we be accountable to our pastors and spiritural leadership in the church:

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. - Heb 13:17.

Through the years, we have witnessed that those who have seen the most success in their lives and ministries are those who understand and submit themselves to God's plan of pastoral authority.
