Step #5 toward Failure in the Christian Life

We finally come to the fifth and final step that will surely guarantee your failure at this thing we call the Christian Life (please go back and read the intro to the first step).

Step #5 Be accountable to NO ONE for ANYTHING! 

One truth that is quite clear in the Bible (especially the New Testament) is that Christianity was never meant to be lived in isolation (Proverbs 27:6; 17; Galatians 6:1-2; Hebrews 10:24-25). Over and over again the NT mandates that Christians do this or that for "one another!" Christians are to be involved in one another's lives for encouragement and accountability. For without these, a Christian will only flounder in his faith.

Therefore, stay away from involvement in any kind of small group. And if someone ever approaches you about becoming his or her "accountability partner," run the other way just as fast as you can! Seek to be a loner as much as you can. Avoid anything that smacks of "community!" The last thing you want is someone to speak the life-changing truth of God's Word into your life!

So there you have it my friend ... five steps toward failure. But ... tongue-in-cheek now aside ... I really hope you do just the opposite ... that is IF you really want to grow in your faith!

Thanks for stopping by . . .
