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.

Pentecost from cogwebcast on Vimeo.
As we celebrate God’s holy day we gain a deeper understanding of the path God has set before us, and the power he has given us to fulfill His purpose. Jeff Patton connects the significance of Shavu’ot in the Old Covenant with Pentecost in the new and shows us how Ruth’s dedication to God, as her God, led God to include her in “His people,” as the firstfruits of creation and co-heirs of Christ.
Recognizing God’s Leaders from cogwebcast on Vimeo.
Many voices in our world, both secular and religious are saying we will soon reach a “point of no return” that could herald major transformations that will overturn the world as we know it today. Jeff Patton, in light of the uncertain future we all may face, encourages everyone to prepare to meet God. He examines the Exodus 19, the Psalms, and David’s thoughts on who will live in God’s presence and stand on His Holy hill.
