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

" I had discovered the madness of the transgender life. It is a fabrication born of mental disorders"

A former transgender-turned-activist is warning that children who think they are members of the opposite biological sex are actually "deceiving themselves". Walt Heyer, an author and public speaker who had sex reassignment surgery at the age of 42 and has grown to regret it, explained in a recent op-ed published by the Daily Signal that parents who encourage their children's gender dysphoria and don't get them psychological treatment are hurting their children.

Heyer detailed how he was forced by his grandmother to crossdress as a small child, which led him to have strong feelings of being a girl as he grew older. Heyer was told that he was suffering from gender dysphoria and that the only way to get relief from the situation was to undergo gender reassignment surgery.

"I lived as a transgender, Laura Jensen, female, for eight years. While studying psychology in a university program, I discovered that trans kids most often are suffering from a variety of disorders, starting with depression — the result of personal loss, broken families, sexual abuse, and unstable homes," Heyer explained. "Deep depression leads kids to want to be someone other than who they are."

"That information sure resonated with me," Heyer continued. "Finally, I had discovered the madness of the transgender life. It is a fabrication born of mental disorders."
