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

How immigration wrecked Sweden



An immigrant herself from the Middle East, Chiméne blames Sweden’s liberal asylum policy for her lost daughter.

Mother-of-four Chiméne, 42, who fled civil war in her Lebanese homeland around 25 years ago, insisted: “Immigration has destroyed Sweden.”

Sweden, a country of 9.8million, took 163,000 asylum seekers in 2015.

The influx includes 35,400 unaccompanied minors — nine times more than 2014.

... Stockholm police say the capital’s train station is “overrun” with North African youth gangs stealing and “groping girls”.

One unnamed cop told Swedish TV: “They grope girls and slap them in the face when they protest. I would never let my children go to the central station. No officer would.”

... Swedish police were slated last week for burying reports of Afghan asylum seekers allegedly molesting and raping young girls. The string of attacks, which included reports of 36 assaults and two rapes, are said to have taken place at the We Are Sthlm music festival for teenagers in 2014 and 2015.

Officers claimed they failed to report the crimes over fears far-Right parties would use the cases to attack migrants.

Stockholm’s main public swimming centre will now be patrolled by uniformed police after at least four under-age girls were reportedly sexually assaulted by young male asylum seekers earlier this month.

Staff at a home for refugee children near Kalmar, southern Sweden, were forced to barricade themselves in a room on Wednesday night after 19 young men rioted and attacked them with makeshift weapons.

Cops also told how they were attacked by a mob of asylum seekers amid allegations a boy aged ten had been “raped repeatedly” at a refugee centre.

Lena Nitz, Sweden’s police union director, admitted: “The situation is unsustainable.”

Arson attacks targeting asylum shelters have become widespread and support for the far-Right Swedish Democrats party has surged. The turmoil has left liberal Sweden aghast.


Columnist Per Gudmundson, 47, who writes for the conservative daily paper Svenska Dagbladet, told me: “Our immigration policies have been totally misguided. The system has broken down.”

... In November a local police chief said Gothenburg was the largest European recruiting ground for terror group IS per head of population, with some 120 jihadis travelling from there to Syria or Iraq.

Abdul Abbas, late stepfather of four-year-old “Jihadi Junior” Brit Isa Dare seen in a recent IS propaganda video, was from Gothenburg.

Ulf Bostrom, Gothenburg’s police inspector for integration, said last year: “The authorities helped to create this problem with our integration policies because we didn’t know how to go about it properly.

“Now the soil here is best for growing terror.”

“The Caliphate is here” and “Convert or die” were daubed on premises owned by Assyrian Christians in Gothenburg in the autumn. The Arab letter N (for Nasrani, meaning Christian) also appeared on Christian Assyrian businesses.

As noted earlier here, Sweden is now the rape capital of the West.
