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

ISIS Is Nothing New, But The Flowering Of Islam In Its Fullest Expression

Sexual slavery, barbaric slaughter, and the suppression of all other faiths. History shows that ISIS is nothing new, but merely a resurgence of Islam in its fullest expression.

Ohio State University history Professor Robert Davis describes the White Slave Trade as minimized by most modern historians in his book Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500–1800 (Palgrave Macmillan). Davis estimates that 1 million to 1.25 million white Christian Europeans were enslaved in North Africa, from the beginning of the 16th century to the middle of the 18th, by slave traders from Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli alone (these numbers do not include the European people which were enslaved by Morocco and by other raiders and traders of the Mediterranean Sea coast), 16th- and 17th-century customs statistics suggest that Istanbul's additional slave import from the Black Sea may have totaled around 2.5 million from 1450 to 1700. The markets declined after the loss of the Barbary Wars and finally ended in the 1830s, when the region was conquered by France.

(And see the report here on Christian Post of ISIS beheading children with axes.)
What's most unbelievable is the refusal of many current political, judicial and law-enforcement leaders to publicly acknowledge the dangers of mass Muslim migration into the West. As Susan Brown tells it like it is here ...

We live in a country run by people who tell us that if a man puts on a dress and says he’s a woman we are supposed to take him at his word. But, if a man goes on a murderous rampage in the name of Allah, and ISIS claims responsibility, we shouldn’t draw conclusions.

ISIS operates freely among us now in the U.S. thanks to political correctness and an administration uncommonly allied with Islam. The recent Muslim bomber in NYC took a trip to Afghanistan and came back with a "shocking" change according to his friends (see here.) Of course, law enforcement had already been scared away from him with his lawsuits claiming persecution for being a Muslim (see here.) ISIS certainly knows how the game the system.

Meanwhile, On a trip to New York City, London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan has said terror attacks are “part and parcel” of urban life, just hours after an Islamic terrorist bombed the city. He should have been more specific:  terror attacks are part and parcel of urban life in the Muslim world.
