Accountability


“… let us see ourselves as persons accountable for our actions and choices.” (Dynamis 9/8/2012)

“…each of us is accountable only for the light he has received… if we follow what we understand with all our heart, we shall receive more of God’s uncreated light…Gifts and talents are really God’s deposits in our personal accounts, but we determine the interest on them." (Dynamis 11/1/2014, John Mason)

“To “die in your sins” is a prospect to be dreaded, for after death comes God’s judgment. We shall give account to Him for all our thoughts, words, and deeds. To live in our sins is to oppose God deliberately, as a result of our chosen preferences, but we can also repent and affirm our desire to remain in our sins no longer…Our sins may be covered or forgiven in this life (Ps 31:1), so that we do not enter life after death still “in our sins.” (Dynamis 5/16/2014)

“It is not of our own sins only that we shall have to give an account, but for those also wherein we cause others to offend.” (Saint John Chrysostom)

“...we must live in preparation for that final moment of accountability. In the end, Christ will triumph over evil. That is a fact. For now, we must fight the battle, that we too may triumph over evil. This life is full of spiritual warfare.” (Abbot Tryphon)
