Accountability in the Church

"Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you." Hebrews 13:17

What does this verse mean for the average church member?

What does this verse mean for the Pastor?

In many churches there is an accountability crisis. I know this is the case because I have personally seen it and I hear of it often in other churches. Although I know the answer to the questions that I posed above, I am thinking through this issue. I welcome you to join me. (read: "please share comments while I'm wrestling with this topic")

Funny. I am teaching about church polity and authority this Sunday night. Perhaps I'll e-mail you what I decided to teach.

Good post. Now, back to the books...
