Welcome to the CONTENDING FOR THE FAITH Homepage.
Contending for the Faith is a bi-monthly publication discussing current events in the church of Christ as well as religious and moral matters in general. We have been in continuous publication since 1970. In 2013, we began the migration to a web-based electronic edition of the paper. In order to subscribe, go to cftfpaper.com.
We are most thankful to our subscribers. Your many encouraging letters, notes, cards and emails that let us know of your desire for us to keep up the fight of faith; to continue to expose and mark false teachers; to unmask the unscriptural conduct of erring brethren and to refute any and all error, are truly words of exhortation.
CFTF wants our supporters to know that if we can encourage the remnant of the faithful not to be overcome of evil, but to overcome evil with good (as the Bible defines "the good"), we will have accomplished much in our efforts to serve our Lord (Romans 12:21).
Let us long for the day if our deliverance from this present evil world and into our heavenly home—for truly "we are saved by hope" (Romans 8:24; 1 John 5:19). Thereby we will be strengthened to be victorious in the fight for the right. In the rout of the enemy we hear our King exhort His soldiers to "Press on, press on" (1 Corinthians 15:58; Revelation 2:10). Let us drive the enemy before us, until the victory is won.
Then, as faithful soldiers of God's great army, we can kneel before our victorious and glorious King as He stands in all His radiant glory upon the final field of battle, gazing down upon the pale face of defeated dead death (1 Corinthians 15:25, 26).
For the cause of Christ,
