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

Grasping At Anything To Avoid The Truth



How did the universe get started? With the Big Bang theory under assault, science and philosophy are fishing for new theories – seemingly anything but the Bible’s Genesis account.

The latest idea comes from a Columbia University astrophysicist who suggests the universe may have been created and maintained by non-human life forms that morphed into the physical world and remain the driving force behind quantum physics.

Professor Caleb Scharf is behind the radical theory that the universe is what remains of intelligent alien life that controls all aspects of the physical world – from gravity to the speed of light. In an article for the science journal Nautilus, Scharf wrote that alien life could exist in the behavior of subatomic particles and the expansion of the universe.

Story is here.

The truth is so abhorrent to some that they readily grasp at any straw, no matter how insane. As I chronicled earlier here, billionaire Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla) believes we are living in a sophisticated computer simulation (like the movie, "The Matrix"). As he said, “There’s a billion to one chance we’re living in base reality,”

Claiming to be wise, they became fools (Rom 1:22)
