Step 5: Exact Nature
Step 5: We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Here comes the hard stuff. To be honest with ourselves and others take a lot of courage. But, we weren’t meant to travel this path alone. This is where discipleship and accountability begin. These two words (discipleship and accountability) are loaded. The church has gotten this wrong a lot and there have been abuses. However, for us to change and grow, we need to find those we can trust. AND, those of us who are a little further down the path MUST be trustworthy and not abuse this trust.
