One of the greatest mistakes a Christian would ever make is to think that he is not accountable to anyone, in this article, I will be sharing Bible verses on Biblical accountability.
According to Dictionary.com website, it defines accountability as:
the state of being accountable, liable, or answerable.
Another dictionary defines it as Responsibility to someone or for some activity.
Both definitions are correct, which is why these Bible verses on Biblical accountability are essential in the lives of believers. Many Christians have erred because they think that they are not accountable to anyone concerning their spiritual life, and growth.
I do believe that the success and failure of a Christian depend on whom he is accountable concerning his spiritual journey.
