A pastor should be accountable to 2 or 3 mature Christians or a mentor/supervisor who could ask straight questions to guard against immorality. 4. More significant was the issue of pacifism; a national conference was established in 1916 for congregations that opposed the war. [111] :371 A conference for "Old Paths" congregations was first held in 1924. [111] :371 The issues involved included concern that the Christian Association was compromising traditional principles in seeking ecumenical ties with other organizations and a sense that it had abandoned Scripture as "an all-sufficient rule of faith and practice".
