Accountability.

"So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12

Liberals, socialists, psychologists, psychotherapists, facilitators of 'change,' children of disobedience, Transformational Marxists (all being the same in formula or method) hate the father's/Father's authority—which judges them, i.e., holds them accountable for their carnal deeds (praxis), which engenders a guilty conscience in them for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. Their agenda is to 'liberate' children from the father's/Father's authority, making them "of and for self,i.e., lovers of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates only, instead, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity.

"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." (Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory)

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16

In discussion (which derives from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth), everyone is held accountable (judged) for being (and doing) right and not wrong. In dialogue (which derives from the child's carnal nature, i.e., "self" 'justification,' i.e., loving pleasure, hating restraint), everyone is 'liberated' from accountability (judgment), so all can continue dialoguing until everyone "feels" "good," i.e., "feels" right, so all can come to a consensus, i.e., to a "feeling" of "oneness," affirming each others carnal nature, i.e., "human nature," "building relationship upon common 'self' interest," i.e., upon that which is of the world only.

"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25

Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e.,  those who, through dialogue ,'justify' their "self," do recognize accountability. If you do not join with them, if you not do what they say, i.e., if you refuse to participate in, if you resist, or if you fight against dialogue, i.e., if you refuse to 'justify' them,  if you judge them as being wrong they will hold you accountable for a hate crime, i.e., as being an enemy of "the people." Yet God will have the final word on the issue of accountability.

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4

God hates no one. He hates what we do, i.e., He hates sin, holding us accountable, i.e., judging us according to our thoughts and actions. No work we do can save us, all our works, i.e., our deeds (praxis) are vain. All that is required by God for salvation is faith in Him, with obedience following.

 "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8, 9

"For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." Matthew 12:50

"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

Without the Father, and his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, all you have is the world—being held accountable, by Him, for your sins.

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"  Matthew 16:24-26
