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

The consequences for sin often range far beyond what we thought possible

The storm isn’t over yet for Ashley Madison cheaters.

Opening up his Yahoo e-mail, John R. couldn’t help but be startled by the subject line of a message declaring: “You got busted.”

The 35-year-old, who works in the science field and asked that only his first name be published for personal and professional reasons, immediately clicked on the bait.

“Unfortunately your data was leaked in the recent hacking of Ashley Madison and I know [sic] have your information,” said the message.

“I have also used your user profile to find your Facebook page, using this I can now message all of your friends and family members,” it continued.

The poorly spelled extortion letter then demanded 2 bitcoin (worth approximately $500 when John received the e-mail in September) to be paid within three days. Otherwise, according to the sender, John’s friends and family would be automatically informed of his Ashley Madison membership.

Such e-mails have shown up in the inboxes of the estimated 37 million Ashley Madison users whose information was breached after a high-profile hack of the site in August. Ashley Madison is infamous for providing unfaithful spouses a platform to find illicit trysts.
