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

Store Ejects Mother for Complaining About Man in Girls’ Bathroom

A Northern California mom became alarmed when her pre-teen daughter said she was uncomfortable with the man who entered a store bathroom while she and another young girl were using it.  But the response of store management left the mom stunned and shaken.

On August 24, Michelle (not her real name) was with her 12-year-old daughter and her daughter’s 10-year-old friend at the REI sporting goods store in Santa Rosa.  Upon leaving the store, Michelle noticed that the girls were upset.  When asked, the girls stated that a man had come into the store restroom while they were using it.  Michelle, who advocates for victim’s rights and knows that it only takes seconds for girls to be molested, returned to the store to notify management of the safety and privacy concerns. To her surprise, a store manager stated that they do not decide who people are or what they can do, and Michelle’s concerns were interpreted as being anti-LGBT.  Michelle was then asked to leave the store, and obscenities were hurled by other patrons at her family as they drove out of the parking lot.
