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

Couple spends $440,000 on surgery to look like dolls



Meet Quentin Dehar, 23, and Anastasia Reskoss, 20, the young couple from France turning heads and raising eyebrows all over the world. According to the Daily Telegraph, "the couple has spent $440K on surgery to look like dolls." Quentin Dehar, 23, and Anastasia Reskoss, 20, have splurged an eye-watering $440K on two boob jobs, four nose jobs, lip injections, butt implants, cheek fillers, ear reshaping surgery, Botox, eye bag removal surgery, fake tanning, teeth whitening, nail extensions and veneers.

Story is here.

Perhaps there is no more tragic story than this one to illustrate the sad truth that people will sometimes go to any lengths, no matter how costly, for an illusion of perfection (albeit seriously distorted in this case). More importantly, this says volumes about their vanity and self-perception. While most of us do not have that kind of money to splurge, I suspect far more people than we realize have the same feelings of frustration with the cards they have been dealt in life. Only Christ can truly satisfy and fulfill us.
