This is a list of accountability questions my core group has gone through on a regular basis, and has been really helpful to us. We all praise God for what He has done in our lives this past year and how we have grown. I am very open to suggestions on how these questions could improve or be more comprehensive in any way! :)
Christianity is not about a set of rules to follow, or about what you do or don't do. It is about a loving God who wants to have a loving relationship with you. It is about loving Him back with every breath, action, word and thought. In order to love Him we have a passionate desire to live a life pleasing to Him.
Therefore you are to be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.
My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
