Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

“Truth is so obscured nowadays, and lies so well established, that unless we love the truth we shall never recognize it." Blaise Pascal

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

The University of California now offers six choices for 'gender identity' (only six?) The alterations are being made to admissions forms and University facilities in order to accommodate “gender identity” began when UC President Janet Napolitano (formerly Homeland Security Advisor) formed a council to advise her on LGBT issues in 2014. The gender and sex questions are just one change slated for the UC system. Gender-neutral restrooms and changing rooms are being installed and “the university is initiating a two-year project designed to coordinate and promote interdisciplinary study of genders and sexualities,” according to a UC press release.

Applicants can choose from one of six "genders":

  • male
  • female
  • trans male/trans man
  • trans female/trans woman
  • gender queer/gender non-conforming
  • “different identity”

In contrast, Facebook now offers users more than 51 new gender options. If you want to be enlightened, go here.
