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.

“Destroy the family and you destroy society."



Lenin famously said, “Destroy the family and you destroy society." He articulated what Socrates had said and regurgitated the thinking of Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx. Lenin set out to do just that, hoping that a new society -- with the State as the ultimate father -- would emerge.

Milwaukee Country Sheriff David Clarke, an African-American, believes there is a serious social problem at the heart of the unrest and the incidents with police nationwide. In an interview documented here, he does not believe racism was the cause of the recent Milwaukee riots, but "the law of the jungle" took over due to failed "progressive policies" implemented long ago by progressive liberals.

“Here is what causes riots,” he said. “We have inescapable poverty in the city of Milwaukee. Milwaukee is sixth poorest city in America. You have massive black unemployment, I think at 32 percent. You have a failing K-12 public education system. It’s one of the worst in the nation. You have questionable lifestyle choices. Some of this is self-inflicted. All the kids with no fathers around, father, absent homes. When fathers are not around to shape behavior of young men, they often times grow up to be unmanageable misfits.”

Citing statistics showing that about 70 percent of children born in Milwaukee don’t have “an engaged father in their life,” he argued that it’s “progressive policies that have marginalized black dads.”

“They push them to the side, said you’re not needed. Uncle Sam is going to be the dad. He’s going to provide for kids. He’s going to feed the kids,” Clarke said. “But Uncle Sam has been a horrible father. Uncle Sam does not like the kids. He keeps a little food in their mouth and that’s about it. But we all know the importance of an intact family, what it can do to shape behavior of kids.”

The impact of the welfare state can be seen in other cities as well, he added, naming Chicago, Baltimore and New York as examples.

“This has been a total collapse, a disaster,” he said. “These progressive policies have hit the black community like a nuclear blast. And until we reverse this, this government dependency, that is what creates all of this, and it encourages it by the way, along with questionable lifestyle choices.”

Marginalizing the crucial role of the father, the government effectively negated the positive impact of the family unit as designed by the Creator. And now, with the dissolution of the family unit complete with the mandate of same-sex marriage, the government has sown a fatal virus into the culture.

There is an undeniably hostile attack underway against the family and against the institution of marriage. The fruit ripening in the culture today (the high divorce rate; the rash number of unwed single mothers; the hoards of illegitimate children; homosexuality and lesbianism, sexual perversion and the alarming high number of abortions) is not some new phenomenon. It is an ingenious plot that has been in force for decades, designed to annihilate the family structure.

The nuclear family must be destroyed , and people must find better ways of living together. ... Whatever it’s ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process. ... "Families have supported oppression by separating people into small, isolated units, unable to join together to fight for common interests. ... — Functions of the Family, Linda Gordon, WOMEN: A Journal of Liberation, Fall, 1969. 

"By the year 2000 we will, I hope, raise our children to believe in human potential, not God" — Gloria Steinem, editor of 'MS' magazine.

"We can't destroy the inequities between men and women until we destroy marriage. " -- [Robin Morgan, "Sisterhood Is Powerful," (ed), 1970, p. 537]

“The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it"  — Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, in Women and the New Rage, p.67

"Marriage has existed for the benefit of men; and has been a legally sanctioned method of control over women... We must work to destroy it. The end of the institution of marriage is a necessary condition for the liberation of women.  Therefore it is important for us to encourage women to leave their husbands and not to live individually with men." —  The Declaration of Feminism , November 1971

"Only when manhood is dead - and it will perish when ravaged femininity no longer sustains it - only then will we know what it is to be free." -- [Andrea Dworkin. "The Root Cause," speech, 26 Sept. 1975, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge (published in Our Blood, ch. 9, 1976).]

"The care of children ...is infinitely better left to the best trained practitioners of both sexes who have chosen it as a vocation...[This] would further undermine family structure while contributing to the freedom of women." — Kate Millet, Sexual Politics 178-179 

"In order to raise children with equality, we must take them away from families and communally raise them."    -- Dr. Mary Jo Bane, feminist and assistant professor of education at Wellesley College and associate director of the school's Center for Research on Woman

"Who cares how men feel or what they do or whether they suffer? They have had over 2000 years to dominate and made a complete hash of it. Now it is our turn. My only comment to men is, if you don't like it, bad luck - and if you get in my way I'll run you down." — Letter to the Editor: Women's Turn to Dominate, Signed: Liberated Women, Boronia; Herald-Sun, Melbourne, Australia, February 9, 1996

"Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation, and destroy the male sex." — Valerie Solana, SCUM Manifesto (Society for Cutting Up Men.)
 
"How will the family unit be destroyed? ... the demand alone will throw the whole ideology of the family into question, so that women can begin establishing a community of work with each other and we can fight collectively.  Women will feel freer to leave their husbands and become economically independent, either through a job or welfare."—  Female Liberation , by Roxanne Dunbar.

"I feel that 'man-hating' is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them."  — Robin Morgan, (editor of MS magazine)
“…[I]t is important for us to encourage women to leave their husbands and not to live individually with men... All of history must be re-written in terms of oppression of women. We must go back to ancient female religions like witchcraft" —  The Declaration of Feminism , November 1971.

"God is going to change. We women... will change the world so much that He won't fit anymore." — Naomi Goldenberg,  Changing of the Gods: Feminism and the End of Traditional Religions (Quoted at beginning of From Father God to Mother Earth)
The vast majority of people are clueless when it comes to understanding the malicious forces arrayed against the family and marriage. They simply do not comprehend how hell-bent the enemy is on destroying the family.

Gillis Triplett identifies the gameplan for destruction to successfully eliminate the sacredness of the marriage covenant from the minds of the masses, and make them believe marriage is outdated and blasé (Al Mohler makes many of the same points in his recent book "We Cannot Be Silent"):
  • Inspire hatred against the family unit, manhood and fatherhood
  • Institute no-fault divorce and encourage serial divorces
  • Incite rampant promiscuity, fornication and adultery
  • Make having illegitimate children become a common practice
  • Convince society that a child in the womb is not a human being
  • Provoke women to have abortions without regard to God or their consciences
  • Make true love seem like cheap amusement
  • Stimulate the people to confuse sex with the love
  • Create an environment that encourages unwed single motherhood
  • Inspire men to disrespect, dishonor and abuse women
  • Design laws that motivate women to commit paternity fraud
  • Incite homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual immorality and perversion
  • Influence men to effortlessly abandon children they sire
  • Most importantly, provoke a fierce relentless gender war
Barring national repentance, Milwaukee is only the beginning.
