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

Police Forbid Singing Christmas Carols On Public Property

Last week, Christmas Carolers were told by law enforcement they could not sing Carols even if they were on public property. Activists will go back to the same abortion clinic on Wednesday,  December 23, at 12:00 P.M. to challenge the prohibition. Members to risk peaceful arrest before refusing to surrender their First Amendment rights. The abortion clinic is located at 900 South Washington St. in Falls Church, Virginia.

Leaders have contacted Alliance Defending Freedom, a nationally known public interest law firm specializing in religious freedom, to represent them. Rev. Patrick Mahoney, lead organizer of the event and Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states;

"It is deeply troubling that a police officer would forbid peaceful pro-life activists from singing Christmas Carols on public property in Falls Church, Virginia. No American, regardless of their religious or political beliefs, should be harassed or intimidated by government and law enforcement officials for peacefully expressing their views in the public square. We want to sent a very clear message to the City of Falls Church that we will not be bullied or intimidated into silence or surrendering our free speech and First Amendment rights.  Even if that means risking arrest. We will also continue to be a peaceful and prayerful witness at abortion clinics sharing the beautiful message of life and hope for all women considering abortion."
