Marriage is an institution that has lasted for millennia to establish family life and uphold society. Godly marriages have even greater purpose and teach us profound lessons in spiritual living. Jeff Patton searches the scriptures and exhorts us to grow godly marriage relationships that reject selfishness and are built upon the spiritual resources of honesty, faithfulness, forgiveness, and love.

There are a multitude of scriptural witnesses who attest to the importance of loving God and neighbour by walking the path of obedience to the commandments. Jeff Patton takes a look at the question of obedience and it’s relationship to the first commandment in the scriptures. He then relates this understanding to scientific studies that corroborate God’s wisdom in declaring we should have “no other gods (authorities)” in our lives. Why is this so?

The question of, “Who is my father?” is a daunting one for some people for a variety of reasons. The question of, “Who is my spiritual father?” also poses a mystery to many, as the bible may not be totally clear as to whether we have one father or two? A challenging conundrum, but one that Jeff Patton answers, when he presents all the biblical evidence for our consideration. It is vital for a Christian to really know, “Who is our spiritual Father?”

Comments Off on Joshua Patton Biography, Josh Patton, by CGP.
Josh from the budding age of five declared that he wanted to be an electrical engineer and he recently achieved this long-time goal. Having graduated from the University of Victoria, he is now employed in the field of distribution power engineering. As an engineer, Josh has great respect for God as a designer, planner, and master of order and law in the universe. He likes to tie his studies of the scriptures into the principles he has learned as an engineer.
Josh is an avid cyclist and runner and participated in his first triathlon last year. He is a good example for the rest of us in terms of cardio-vascular fitness, something we all must consider in this day of desk jobs.
In his spare time Josh loves to garden, especially when there are the big dirty earth-moving tasks to be done. And if that’s not possible, you’ll often find him hiking with his wife along the Vancouver Island trails, and photographing the beauty of God’s creation: forests, mountains, and seashore.
Josh is always eager to search the scriptures and make his defense for the gospel. In courting his wife, he had the opportunity to delve deeply into bible study in order to present the truth of God in a way she could appreciate, and this time of study and reflection was a turning point in his life.
