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

A Preview Of ISIS In 2011

The Egyptian Revolution of 2011, locally known as the January 25 Revolution (Arabic: ثورة 25 يناير‎; Thawret 25 yanāyir),[21] began on 25 January 2011 and was part of the Arab Spring. It was naively heralded by the U.S. administration as healthy and the birth of democracy in Middle Eastern nations ruled by monarchies and dictators. History has subsequently and decisively ruled them foolishly wrong. In Egypt, the military and secularists stepped in to prevent another destructive Islamic regime. 

The night of Feb. 11, the Egyptian dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak was falling. More than 100,000 people filled Cairo's Tahrir Square in wild celebration. Among those in the crowd was CBs's "60 Minutes" colleague, correspondent Lara Logan. In a preview of what was to ultimately incarnate in the Islamic State known as ISIS, on the night of the 11th, a mob turned on Lara and her "60 Minutes" team and singled her out in a violent sexual assault.

Earlier in 2015, Lara Logan was admitted to the hospital again as she continues to deal with health problems stemming from the brutal sexual assault in Egypt in 2011, suffering from digestive disease diverticulitis and internal bleeding. A CBS source said, “Lara’s health has continued to suffer and she has been hospitalized numerous times in the years following the attack in Egypt."

Here is her story from 2012 in her own words.
