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

'Anxious and fearful' students demand day off to cry about Trump



This is the cartoonish worldview of progressive liberals. They need to spend a few weeks in North Korea or Saudi Arabia for a jolt back to reality.

College students at several schools have started petitions urging their universities and professors to cancel classes in the wake of Donald Trump’s electoral victory, citing “emotional distress.”

A petition to cancel classes at Loyola University has 298 supporters, over halfway to its goal of 500 signatories, though some signatures appear to have been revoked Wednesday.  

“Loyola students are exhausted and exasperated from this election and no one wants to go to class,” the petition explains. “The only cure to an election hangover is drinking a cold beer in bed...all day.”

On top of the alleged exhaustion, comments from several signers cite mental health as an additional reason to cancel classes, with one student declaring, “some people are literally scared for their lives.”

“i don't think i can emotionally handle classes tomorrow with what I'm seeing,” another signee wrote.

“Last night I cried until I vomited,” a Loyola student claimed. “I don't even remember falling asleep, but I must have passed out from hyperventilation. I woke up with my eyes nearly swolen [sic] shut. My body is sore. My mind is numb.”


*******

And in the Wonderland bubble of Washington DC, Democratic staffers were so upset over the popular election of President Elect Donald Trump that “therapy dogs” were brought into the U.S. Capitol to soothe their hurt feelings.

When one's worldview is essentially man-made with little foundation in reality, it is just a matter of time until everything crumbles and their house collapses as their "world" ends. Such is not the case for Christians who adhere to the true Biblical worldview and whose house stands strong no matter how fierce the storm rages. Ask the believers in North Korea, Iraq and Saudi Arabia who have real reason to fear. Ask the faithful Christians who have been martyred by ISIS and would be astonished at us ...

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” (Matt 7:24-27)
