  • Jeff is an ordained elder in the Church of God and has served the brethren in Nanaimo for the past six years, first as an independent Church of God and later as a congregation within the Church of God International (CGI). Recent developments within the Canadian branch of CGI have led Jeff to form an independent web-based ministry, COGWebcast to further the preaching of the gospel and to serve the brethren that were being served on-line each Sabbath by the cognanaimo webcast. You can read Jeff’s blog at www.theworldtomorrow.ca.

    Jeff hopes to build working relationships with other like-minded brethren who hold to the doctrinal principle of Sola Scriptura, and have the zeal to reach out and preach the gospel to a new generation of disciples.

    In the Steps of Barnabas and Paul 2

    Excerpt: Cyprus Journal-Part 2 Monday—January 17, 2005 What a great day we had today. Last night we had a reasonable sleep, but there was a continuous “white noise” in the background that we couldn’t avoid in our room. The pool’s pump room next door made it seem as if we were berthed beside a ship’s engine. The woman at the reception desk graciously allowed us to change to a different room: one that had a great ocean view. Ask, and ye shall receive! Why is man-made noise generally so annoying and disagreeable while the sound of the Creator’s ocean waves crashing on the…

    In the Steps of Barnabas and Paul

    by on Jul.18, 2011, under Jeff Patton

    Archived; click post to view.
    Excerpt: Cyprus Journal –Preaching the Good News Sunday—January 16, 2005 We flew into Paphos, Cyprus, for our vacation about 8 o’clock at night in the midst of a winter storm complete with lightning flashes and blustery winds. After clearing immigration, the representative from the travel company cracked the expected jokes to the planeload of Brits about bringing in the bad weather so as to feel right at home. But then, maybe it was the five Canucks from British Columbia’s Vancouver Island who squeezed on board that were responsible for what would be our typical BC January weather blowing off the Pacific Ocean—wet but…

    The “Dumbest Generation?”

    by on May.22, 2011, under Jeff Patton

    idiocracy the movie
    There is a small, but vocal, group of educational professionals who are deeply worried about the intellectual abilities of young people in secondary and post-secondary education these days. Mark Bauerlein, a professor of English at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, said in his recently published book The Dumbest Generation:

    Evil Deserves Justice

    by on Apr.08, 2011, under Jeff Patton

    How do we, as a society, effectively respond to evil? This week the B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Johnston sentenced Kruse Hendrik Wellwood, 17, and Cameron Alexander Moffat, 18, to life in prison with no possibility for parole for 10 years. They were convicted by a large amount of grisly evidence and by the testimony of their own mouths. What was the crime Wellwood and Moffat committed?…

    Looking Out for Our Best Interests

    by on Apr.03, 2011, under Jeff Patton

      On Friday, April 1, 2011, the Wisconsin state governor Scott Walker signed into law an immensely controversial bill passed by that state’s legislature the previous evening despite death threats, intimidation, and large demonstrations by organized labour supporters. The new law effectively puts this Midwestern state’s public-sector unions on a diet of low-fat cheese at a time when many American states and municipalities are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. The consequences of such defaults on state and municipal financial obligations would be profound…

    Your Roots Your Destiny

    by on May.13, 2010, under Announcements, Articles, Jeff Patton

    Archived; click post to view.
    Excerpt: Your Roots Your Destiny Introduction Does God keep His promises? Would He be willing to have and maintain a close relationship with a human like me? I don’t kid myself about being holy or perfect. There are even those occasions when I feel rebellious or tempted. Sometimes I do my own thing and I don’t want to listen to the Divine Authority Figure who tells me what is right or wrong. I admit it! There are moments when I think I know best and I behave like a spiritual teenager who won’t pay attention to His heavenly Father’s instructions. It seems as though…

    When stepping on someone’s toes results in murder

    by on May.07, 2010, under Articles, Jeff Patton

    On a pleasant late July evening in Victoria, B.C. two years ago, 16-year-old Mark Arrieta pulled out a handgun at the strident urging of his 22-year-old “friend,” Somphanvanh Chanthabouala, and shot at point-blank range three other young people, seriously injuring two while killing 20-year-old University of Victoria student Philbert Truong.

    Catholic doctrinal error propagates child abuse scandals!

    by on Apr.09, 2010, under Articles, Jeff Patton

    During the recently completed Easter/Passover season there were a great number of headlines in the various media sources I was following about the latest episode of the Roman Catholic Church and the illicit appetites of its clergy for pedophilia. This time around the scandal of Catholic priests sexually abusing children was stunning Europe.  The media has been talking about incidents in Ireland and Germany where, it seems, some are questioning whether the current pope was actually involved himself in covering up some abuse cases that happened there, during the time he was in charge… Click Here to read more (continue reading…)

    Counter-intuitive: lifetime employment makes financial sense

    by on Mar.18, 2010, under Articles, Jeff Patton

    If you believe mainstream economists, we are on the path leading out of “The Great Recession.” But even if this is true, there are a whole lot of jobs in North America, millions of jobs that need to be re-created just to get back to pre-2008 levels. Click Here to Read More (continue reading…)

    Reaping what we sow–gendercide and abortion

    by on Mar.14, 2010, under Articles, Jeff Patton

    “The right to liberty… guarantees a degree of personal autonomy over important decisions intimately affecting his or her private life. … The decision whether or not to terminate a pregnancy is essentially a moral decision and in a free and democratic society, the conscience of the individual must be paramount to that of the state.” (Morgentaler et al. v. Her Majesty The Queen, [1988] 1 S.C.R. 30 at 37) Click Here to read more (continue reading…)
