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

Mapping the Frenzy of Europe's Migrant Crisis

Europe is experiencing the biggest refugee crisis since World War II. An interactive map created by the Finnish company Lucify shows the journeys of over a million migrants who have made their way across Europe from Africa and the Middle East over the past three years. The map, created by Finnish company Lucify, uses monthly figures from the United Nations High Commission for Refugees to show the scale of the movement. Each dot represents 25 people, or one bus load, and by hovering over a country you can see how many migrants it has taken, or in the case of African and Middle Eastern countries, how many they have lost.

If the map below doesn't work for you, the originating web site is here.
