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

Government Trying To Change Teens Sex Without Parental Consent



A team of "advocates" for "transsexuality" from a school district and a medical services organization to county social workers have decided that a 17-year-old minor is “emancipated” from his parents and want to go ahead with male-to-female sex-change treatments with no further permission. A lawsuit is being brought against St. Louis County in Minnesota, its public health chief Linnea Mirsch, Fairview Health Services, Park Nicollet Health Services, St. Louis County School District, Cherry School Principal Michael Johnson and others.

“This is an outrageous abuse of power by multiple agencies,” said Tom Brejcha, chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, which is working with local attorney Erick Kaardal of Mohrman, Kaardal and Erickson of Minneapolis on the case.

“To treat a minor child without either parental consent or a court order of emancipation is a violation of the trust placed upon the human service sector and its governmental oversight agencies. To give a parent no recourse to intervene in this situation is an egregious violation of constitutional rights,” Brejcha said.

What did we expect would happen when no state requires parental consent for a minor to get contraception, and a minor can get an abortion in some states without parental consent? This is yet another step down the slippery slope towards the scenario pictured in Scripture of a despotic and controlling world government at the end of the age.

Perhaps the new administration can buy us some time, as Josiah did in ancient Israel, before judgment finally fell.
