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

Many Think Christians Are Bigger Threat Than Muslims

Reflective of the culture's growing suspicion and animosity towards Christians, a new poll reveals that 45 percent of the Democrats believe that Christians are a greater threat to America than Muslims. 72 percent of atheists agree. Surprisingly,18 percent of those who consider themselves ” very conservative” agree along with 29 percent of Protestants and 23 percent of Catholics.

While the sample of Muslims was very small, 100 percent said it is Muslims who are the greater danger.

The results are from a poll by Clout Research (here), a national opinion research firm in Columbus, Ohio. The telephone survey of registered voters was taken Dec. 18-27, except for the holiday, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.35 percentage points.

Poll results are here.
