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.

"Jesus hung out with the tax collectors and sinners, yes, but he didn't teach them how to extort more money or sleep with more men"

Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church earlier this month, Michael Brown believes "the gay revolution has within itself the seeds of self-destruction" and that the church has sold its soul to be relevant He further argued that the moral chaos in culture and society is the reason that the LGBT Movement and agenda has flourished. He also pointed out that polyamory, couples living together, and the breakdown of gender distinctions is celebrated and uplifted in secular culture.

Perhaps his most important point is that the moral basis of our faith is not polling results. Far too many Christians look to polls instead of Scripture for moral guidance.
