Writing from the difficult place of prison to his protege, Timothy, in a difficult situation of church conflict, the Apostle Paul charged him:
"Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions," (2 Timothy 4:2-3)
CCC's desire is that our people would be "P.O.W's." Not "prisoners of war" in the conflict between truth and error, but "People Of the Word." Sadly, often when churches set their focus on right teaching and biblical accuracy they become inwardly focused and legalistic. Too often God's people become M.I.A - "missing in action." But just the opposite is supposed to happen. The study of God's word is supposed to make us more "ready" for action, "in season and out of season." The church (and the world!) needs true M.I.A.'s - "Men In Action" who are trained in God's word to lead God's people in being grounded in God's Word and ready to impact God's world.
