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.

The progressive war on truth

Ken Blackwell explains the ongoing war on truth is like a snowball rolling down hill, progressively growing larger and more destructive ...

Do you feel like America has gone crazy?

The Supreme Court's outrageous decisions in the Obamacare and same-sex marriage cases, in which the Court simply ignored the plain meanings of words and the Constitution, and thumbed its nose at the most basic facts of life, are only the latest examples of our nation turning its back on truth and common sense. Under the influence of "progressive" fanatics, we're suffering from a progressive pathology that's tearing our nation apart. In their quest to redefine "normal," they are tearing up America's morality by the roots. They're forcing America to abandon God's standards of right and wrong, and in consequence our society is becoming increasingly unmoored from reality.

... The war on truth is rapidly devolving into a war on reality itself. Perhaps it's inevitable that when you abandon the plain black and white of truth and falsehood, you lose the ability to discern what is real and what is not. 

... You'd better think twice before you tell the truth about the emperor's new clothes. Progressives are using the power of government to force society to go along with the insanity. This goes on wherever progressives hold power. Politically correct speech codes have been enforced on American college campuses for decades, where conservative and Christian students and faculty are routinely discriminated against and decried as "haters."

Now that progressives have taken over broad swaths of federal and state government, they have greatly enhanced power to enforce their will. Bakers and florists who refuse to participate in same-sex ceremonies are driven out of business, despite the First Amendment's guarantee of free exercise of religion.

Religious liberty is under assault in America. People who espouse Judeo-Christian values are being denied entry into graduate schools and driven from their jobs. Just ask Wes Modder, the chaplain who recently was kicked out of the Navy for telling counselees the truth about what the Bible teaches about sexuality, including homosexual behavior. Traditional American religion – Judeo-Christian values and practice – is the ultimate target of the progressives, who must uproot our moral structure and redefine good and evil before they can create their secular utopia.

God says, "Woe to those who call good evil, and evil good" (Isaiah 5:20).
