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

The Fruit Of Gender Insanity

The culture's gender insanity is bearing fruit with people between the ages 13 and 20 spouting bizarre ideas about the relationships between boys and girls, according to a new study by a division of  J. Walter Thompson. (Study is here.)

Fifty-six percent of respondents from the so-called Gen-Z “said they know someone who went by gender neutral pronouns such as ‘they,’ ‘them,’ or ‘ze,’ compared to 43 percent” of Gen Y, also known as Millennials, says the study. The "Gen Zers" also say their peers reject the “gender binary” when shopping.  (“Gender binary” is a new progressive term intended to stigmatize the reality that boys and girls usually want different things. When shopping for shoes, for instance, 39 percent of the boys might buy high-heels, or maybe even push-up bras, says the study.)

Only 48 percent of Gen Z describe themselves as “completely heterosexual,” and six percent consider themselves “completely homosexual.” All the rest portray themselves as somewhat bi-sexual. Correspondingly, 91 percent of them say they strongly or somewhat agree that they or other “people are exploring their sexuality more than in the past.”

Seventy-eight percent of them strongly or somewhat agree that “gender doesn’t define a person as much as it used to.” Seventy percent say gender neutral bathrooms should be provided in public.

Welcome to the Twilight Zone.
