Is the Christian Church in America Losing Its Influence?

Is the Christian Church in America losing its identity and influence?  Or simple learning to better relate to the secular world around us? Jesus commanded us to reach out into the sinful world and share the good news of the gospel of salvation.  But He also warned us to not conform to the deception and […]

Christians Should Be Seen But Not Heard?

When I was a child one thing I would hear too often from my parents was “Children are to be seen, but not heard”.  We were to be submissive and obedient children but not express opinions when adults were in the room. Are we seeing this philosophy imposed on Bible-believing Christians these days?  Christians around […]

The Narrow Christian Path

Jesus taught us the path to eternal life was narrow and that few find it.  Along both sides of the narrow path are numerous distractions and dangers lurking to pull us away from God and His eternal Word of Truth.  And if we take our eyes off the path we could easily stray off it […]

Replacement Theology

Last week our guest Pastor David Hocking had some stern warnings against the doctrine of “Replacement Theology” which states the Church has replaced Israel and God’s promises to Israel no longer apply to the final days. What are your views when you read what Paul wrote in Romans?  What does your church teach or believe […]

They’re Back….

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was were no deceptive movements disguising themselves as Biblical Christianity these days?  If we could turn on Christian television and not worry about deception disguised as “truth”.  If we could enjoy a Saturday morning without that knock on the door bringing another religious cult member wanting to tell you […]

The Lure of the Prosperity Gospel

Today we continue our look at the Word of Faith movement with our guest Pastor David Hocking.  The movement understandably appeals to Americans because of the promise of earthly blessings–but is it leaving disappointment and devastation in its wake while a handful live a life of fame and fortune? Pastor David Hocking joins us by […]

The Danger of the Word Faith Movement

Jesus taught that a man must be willing to give up wealth, friends and even family to follow Him as His disciple.  The Christian life is one of obedience and submission to Jesus Christ in every area of our life.  But there are some who believe the Christian life should be marked by health, wealth […]

He Who Has an Ear

The Founding Fathers of this nation realized the dangers of a powerful federal government. From the establishment of the Constitution to the Bill of Rights to the insistence on States’ Rights, our founders realized that centralized power was an open door for corruption and tyranny. They knew that sinful men could not be trusted to […]

Exactly What is a “Church”?

As we prepare for our Watchman Conference tonight, our keynote speaker Elijah Abraham joins us to discuss what Jesus meant when He said “I will build my church.”  What is a “church” in America compared to the “church” in countries where proclaiming your faith in Jesus Christ might lead to imprisonment or execution?  Is the […]

Reaching Youth While remaining True to the Gospel

What “version” of Christianity are we passing down to our next generation?  Biblical Christianity built on the solid rock of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the infallibility of the Bible?  Or a “Christianity” that can be formed and molded into a religion that suits the beliefs and desires of the individual, allowing them to […]

Is Christian Persecution Coming to America?

Every day it seems comes news of more murders of Christians in Africa and The Middle East.  In fact it has become so common, many media outlets seem to think it is no longer “news worthy”. In America we are still safe.  But for how long?  Is it just a matter of time before Christians […]

Dual or Conflicting Citizenship?

America has been a shining light of freedom for nearly 250 years.  As citizens, we have been blessed by the freedom to worship, the freedom to speak our minds and the ability to work hard and become successful. Christians in America hold “Dual Citizenship”:  We are permanent citizens of the eternal kingdom of God on […]

Our voice and social media

SUFTT’s mission is to educate, empower and connect Christians to understand what the Bible teaches us about the times in which we live. We believe the Bible is clear that in the latter days the world will grow increasingly hostile toward God and His Word, and that deception will increase, causing some professing Christians to […]

Too Focused on the Present?

The Bible–the inerrant, sufficient and inspired Word of God gives us the rich history of mankind, our fall into sin, redemption by Jesus Christ, and promise of eternal life with God by grace through our faith in Jesus.  But these days are too many Christians forgetting the history and not looking forward to the future?  […]

The Battle is Over — But Just Beginning

There is some irony in the fact that the controversy over Religious Freedom Laws in the United States has blown up during the week when we as Christians remember and celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who bore the wrath of God against sin, so that we might be […]

Grounding our youth in truth

We often cite statistics and studies that show up to 80% of youth who call themselves Christians will probably leave the church once they go off to College. While this is a sad and alarming finding, what is being done about it? Who is trying to help parents and the church keep our Christian youth […]

A Christian in America – A Coming Dilemma?

Today we discuss what it means to be a Christian faithful to God, living in a nation that seems to be falling away from God and His ways.  Being a true Christian in America used to be simpler.  Our nation, while far from perfect, at least tried to live by the laws and principles of […]

Raising the Bar on Salvation?

I had an interesting conversation with a Christian brother a few weeks ago.  He is adamant on his beliefs on “sola scriptura” and frustrated that some Christians seem to be “raising the bar” on salvation by preaching what he calls a “works based salvation” through ideas like the Social Justice Movement. The conversation moved on […]
