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

State Emptied Christian Bakers’ Bank Accounts Before They Paid ‘Emotional Damages’



The Christian owners of a bakery in Oregon who paid over $135,000 in state-ordered “emotional damages” for two lesbian women who filed a complaint after being told that the couple could not provide a cake for their “wedding” ceremony say that the state emptied all three of their personal banking accounts earlier this month—including money set aside to pay their tithe.

“It was like my breath was taken away,” Melissa Klein of Sweet Cakes by Melissa told conservative reporter Todd Starnes this week. “I panicked. Everything was gone.”

She explained that she and her husband have three personal bank accounts: one checking, one savings, and one account marked “God’s money” for their tithe at church. The three accounts contained just under $7,000 total, and when Klein checked on her bank accounts a few weeks ago, she noticed that they were empty.

“They just took it,” she said.

Christians who naively believed the ruckus over same-sex marriage was much-ado-over-nothing are now discovering how terribly wrong they were. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Emboldened by a lawless government, activists for same-sex marriage, transgender rights and other perversions yet-to-come will increasingly tighten the screws in a futile attempt to drive any last vestige of Christianity from the public square.

Fence-sitting Christians will abdicate. The faithful will pay a challenging and increasingly stiff price.
