Perhaps there is a difference between accountability to a person and to a group, but I have found accountability to be revolutionary. Some years ago, after having ventured into territory where God fearing men should shudder, a christian brother (with whom I had shared by struggles) simply asked this. I want you to promise me that before you enter such a place again... even on your way in.. You will call me. And then, that you will call me once you have left. As a result of that promise, I have never had to call him in that climate. Yes. I could lie. Or I could break a promise. But having already trashed my character in vital areas, I simply have not been willing to trash every vestige of integrity. And I know, that once I did, I would be a gonner. Nothing to hold me back from that which would shipwreck my soul. So Yes. Accountability works.
