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

9 Inconvenient Facts About Islam



John Nolte gives us 9 inconvenient facts here (with sources) about Islam the media does not publicize:
  1. Americans Muslims are 5,000 Percent More Likely to Commit a Terror Attack. “Muslims account for only about 1 percent of the U.S. population but account for about half of terrorist attacks since 9/11. That means Muslims in the United States are about 5,000 percent more likely to commit terrorist attacks than non-Muslims.” 
  2. ISIS Is Already Everywhere In the United States. “Even with our smaller Muslim population, we have trouble keeping track. The FBI is reported to have nearly 1,000 active probes into ISIS supporters in the United States. Of those, 48 suspects are under intensive, 24/7 surveillance, straining the agency’s capacity. … There’s really no way around it: Continuing to admit 1 million Muslim immigrants per decade will translate into more attacks. We need to cut Muslim immigration.”
  3. 51% of American Muslims Back Some Form of Sharia. “According to the just-released survey of Muslims, a majority (51%) agreed that ‘Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.’"
  4. A Quarter of American Muslims Are Comfortable With Violence. “Even more troubling, is the fact that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed that, ‘It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.’”
  5. Disturbing Percentages of the World’s Muslims Support ISIS. When you are talking about accepting refugees or immigrants from countries where anywhere from 1% to 14% of millions of Muslims view ISIS favorably, that is a massive threat to our security.
  6. Disturbing Percentages of the World’s Muslims Support Suicide Bombings. 
  7. Only 81% of American Muslims Agree That Violence Against Civilians Is Never Justified. There are millions of Muslims in this country. This means that hundreds of thousands of American Muslims are in some way comfortable with the idea of using violence against innocent civilians. 
  8. Disturbing Percentages of the World’s Muslims Back Sharia Law. Throughout the various regions of the world, anywhere from 12% to 84% of the world’s Muslims back Sharia Law. Only in Southern-Eastern Europe and Central Asia is this number below 64%. Sharia Law means death to homosexuals, death to non-Muslims (unless they convert), and horrific oppression of women. ISIS has one goal: Sharia.
  9. America Admits Thousand of Immigrants From Countries Where Muslims Favor Sharia. “Pew asked Muslims in 39 countries whether they want sharia to be law of the land where they live. The percentage who answer 'yes' is very, very high in some countries: 99 percent say yes in Afghanistan, 91 percent in Iraq, 84 percent in Pakistan. On the low end, just 12 percent of Muslims in Turkey say they want sharia to be the law of the land; the number is 10 percent in Kazakhstan. According to a separate report from the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, the U.S. awarded 11,000 green cards to immigrants from Afghanistan from 2009 to 2013, 83,000 to Iraqis in the same time period, and 83,000 to Pakistanis. The U.S. awarded 22,000 green cards to Turks in that time, and 7,000 to Khazaks.”
