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

‘You will not be safe in Muslim lands’



ISIS warns Britons after Italian shot in Bangladesh.

British tourists have been warned to avoid travelling to ‘Muslim lands’ by Islamic State (ISIS), following the murder of an Italian aid worker in Bangladesh. The savage terror group – which has expanded its reach from Syria and Iraq to vast swathes of Africa and Asia - claimed responsibility for gunning down Cesare Tavella as he jogged home yesterday in the capital Dhaka. The 51-year-old was killed when two gunmen claiming to be the “soldiers of the Caliphate in Bangladesh" fired three shots. The jihadi assassins used silencer-mounted guns "after pursuing him in one of Dhaka's streets”, the ISIS affiliate said.

But, in a chilling warning to all Westerners, the group wrote on Twitter: "We say to all citizens of the Crusader coalition, you will not be safe in the Muslim lands, and this is just the beginning. We say to all citizens of the Crusader coalition, you will not be safe in the Muslim lands, and this is just the beginning."
