Honestly, this is an area where I know I must be vigilant. I’ve used the x3watch software on my home and work computers for several years now, and my wife and my brother are the ones who get the e-mail twice a month. In addition to them, there are also several other guys in my life who hold me accountable and who I help hold accountable.

UPDATE 8/29/08: I’ve been using the K9 Filter for several months now, and it’s the best thing I’ve come across, especially for free.  It can be customized, and I highly recommend it.

I may be a pastor, but I’m still human, and I realize that accountability is a huge part of living in a way that’s pleasing to God.
