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

This is why Bin Laden Chose The Date of Sep 11

This great and historically accurate movie ("Day of the Siege") is the true story of how God moved on Sep 11, 1683 to defeat 300,000 Muslims who were besieging Vienna at the door to Europe. Marco d'Aviano was the Italian priest (in the clip) who played a key role in defending Vienna. The city and Europe was saved by the largest cavalry charge in history led by Polish king Jan Sobieski of a greatly outnumbered force of around 50,000 against 300,000 Ottoman Turks. Bin Laden specifically chose this date to launch the 9/11 attacks to avenge the Muslim defeat at the entrance to Europe. Forget Hollywood's cheesy comic-book theatrics ... this is stirring reality. As one who has studied the siege of Vienna, watch this foreign move (rated 4.5 stars on Netflix) to understand the true history - not some fanciful, distorted progressive view. I shudder to think what Hollywood's rendition would have been like.

Western civilization owes its very existence to the defenders of Vienna who stopped the hostile Muslim takeover of Europe in 1683. May God find and use a modern-day Marco d'Aviano and Jan Sobieski to effect the same thing three centuries later.

Here's the movie trailer:
