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

In contrast to the spoiled, pandered kids that she is representing ...

First, watch this video ...

In contrast to the spoiled, pandered kids that this young girl is representing, a U.S. Marine sent a scathing message to the Million Student March for free college tuition taking shape across the nation with a simple photo that expressed way, way more than 1,000 words. 

Beneath a selfie of himself in full Marine camouflage gear, James Erickson wrote on his Twitter handle of @SayHiJames: 

“I wanted money for school, so I marched too … #millionstudentmarch. This one was about 25 miles … #USMC.”

The 25 miles was a reference to the length of road march he was required to make as a Marine.

Erickson’s subtle suggestions to these college kids?  Join the military. Pay for school yourself. Get a job.
