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

Training A ‘Caliphate Cub’ To Navigate An Obstacle Course Under Live Fire

A small boy crawling through an obstacle course while seemingly dodging bullets is shown in a video recently released by the Islamic State. The video clip posted on the Facebook page of an IS militant, Abu Aisha al-Kazakhi, shows a young child clad in military fatigues, struggling to pass under a barb wire obstacle course and shouting “Allah akbar,” or “Allah is the greatest.” The clip was reportedly taken during one of the training sessions for “the Caliphate Cubs” in a training camp to prepare them as the “next generation” of IS militants. In the video, the child not older than 10 crawls like a commando while live bullets hit the dirt just a few inches around his body.
