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

A Future I Want No Part Of

As reported here,

Sex between married couples will increasingly be saved for special occasions as  robots step in to satisfy everyday needs, experts have predicted. Use of artificial intelligence (AI) devices in the bedroom will be socially normal within 25 years, an international  robotics conference has heard. Comparing sex robots to the rise of the ebook, Dr Trudy Barber, a pioneer in the impact of technology on sexual intercourse, said the machines would enable people to greater appreciate “the real thing”.

The Bible is explicitly clear regarding the sexual obligation of husband and wife towards each other (1 Cor 7:3-5); "sex robots" will do nothing for the marriage but alienate husband and wife.

And as reported here, a French woman is in love with a robot and wants to marry it. She consideres herself "robosexual".

‘I'm a proud robosexual, we don't hurt anybody, we are just happy.’

Now, Lilly is reportedly engaged to the robot and says they will marry when human-robot marriage is legalised in France.

Egged on by progressive liberals, the culture is becoming increasingly disconnected from reality and retreating deeper and deeper into make-believe fantasy. This is a future no sane person wants any part of. The ready acceptance of it by many graphically demonstrates how insane the world is becoming.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8 NIV)

Note the admonition to focus on "true" things - an exhortation that most of our contemporary culture willingly ignores. But ultimately truth and reality will inevitably intrude, blowing down the house of cards that progressive liberals are building ...

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.  (Matt 7:24-27, NIV)
