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

The mask comes off - the true nature and heart of that worldview is now on graphic display for all to see

A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. (Luke 6:45, NIV)

The mask is now off for the real nature of progressive liberalism after Trump's election and subsequent inauguration. The supposed champions of tolerance, empathy, peace, love, and racial equality have been unmasked as hyper-hypocrites of intolerance, violence, vulgarity, hatred and racism of the worst kind with astonishing episodes of tantrums and meltdowns reminiscent of a spoiled child.

The State Department held stress workshops after the election so they would not “become paralyzed by fear.” EPA employees were caught crying before, just after the election, as were White House aides. Energy Department employees were granted counseling.

A senior U.S. Secret Service agent posted Facebook condemnations of President Trump during the past seven months, including one in which she said she wouldn't want to "take a bullet" for him. She explained herself saying she viewed his presidential candidacy as a "disaster" for the country, and especially for women and minorities. Kerry O'Grady, the special agent in charge of the Secret Service's Denver district, oversees coordination with Washington-based advance teams for all presidential candidate and presidential trips to the area, including all upcoming or future trips by the president, vice president or Trump administration officials. Despite her senior security role, she has made her disdain for Trump and his incoming administration clear to her Facebook followers, who included current and former Secret Service agents and other people who were employees at the time of the posts. O'Grady's negative stance regarding Trump did not end when he became president. O'Grady posted the logo for the women's March on Denver as her Facebook cover backdrop on Inauguration Day, Friday, Jan. 21 at 12:25 p.m. When one of her Facebook followers commented that "none of these women represent me #justsayin," O'Grady countered that "all of these women represent me! Proud to say it! #nasty." At 11:23 p.m. on Inauguration Day, she updated her profile picture to an artist's rendering of Princess Leia with the words, "A woman's place is in the resistance." (O'Grady appears to have removed the pre-election posts after fellow and former Secret Service agents complained to her supervisors and the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Inspector General, which investigates agency complaints of misbehavior, according to two sources familiar with the timing of the posts' removal.)

Last week, Marc Lamont Hill, professor at Morehouse College, characterized Jim Brown, Steve Harvey, Martin Luther King III and others as “mediocre negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump”, and over the weekend, actor Shia Laboeuf put a uniquely bizarre shouting tantrum on full display,

A Kentucky woman, Heather Lowrey, suggested on Twitter it would be "kind” for someone to assassinate Donald Trump, who was inaugurated as president three days later.

On Friday when Trump was inaugurated, Bre Payton noted, "... many people lost their minds. Pundits melted down on live TV, protestors destroyed Washington DC, and some literally threw temper-tantrums." She goes on to list some of the most unhinged reactions here. Below is a video recorded as Trump is inaugurated ...

On inauguration day, a Saturday Night Comedy writer (Katie Rich) tweeted that Trump's 10-year old son (Barron) would be the nations first "homeschool shooter". Comedy Central writer Stephen Spinola joined in the attacks by tweeting Friday that Barron resembles a “rapist” with a “small PP.” Spinola even joked that he hoped Barron would rape his own mother. Spinola followed his comment with another tweet: “I don’t want my Mom to get raped, but if she does I hope it’s by Barron Trump – small pp would be painless & we’d win lots of money in court.” Comedian Matt Oswalt also took a crack aimed at the 10-year-old Trump, tweeting: “Barron Trump is wandering around the White House right now looking for stuff to burn.” (In contrast to the vicious mocking of Barron, public figures and members of the media vehemently denounced any targeting of Obama's daughters [Sasha and Malia], as the girls were considered off limits to jokes and public scrutiny.)

A high school art teacher in Dallas posted an Instagram video of herself "shooting" an image of Donald Trump with a squirt gun and screaming "die" during Friday's inauguration. A copy of the video went viral (below) on Twitter before the original source was identified. How would her to be the teacher for your kids?

Images taken during the violent unrest in Washington DC this week show an anti-Trump Antifa protester displaying a photo of an ISIS flag and an ISIS beheading video on his phone to intimidate Trump supporters.

As Donald J. Trump was sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol as the 45th President, hundreds of masked protesters went on a rampage throughout downtown Washington, D.C. Police in riot gear attempted to maintain order with pepper spray and concussion “Flashbang” grenades whilst being attacked with bricks that were pulled from the sidewalk. The protesters torched private cars, attacked Trump supporters, and lit fires in the street.

Thanks to Washington, D.C.’s felony rioting statute, 230 anti-Trump protesters will face up to ten years in jail for rioting. One week before the inauguration it was reported that protesters were planning to destroy property. One protester, Tom Faison, told The Washington Post that the property damage was done with “nuance and intention.” The Post also reported that a majority of the arrested protesters were not residents of Washington, D.C., Maryland, or Virginia. Tom Massey, 32, of Philadelphia was among those arrested, and he told The Post, “I think there should have been more violence yesterday.”

Anti-Trump protestors got rowdy, attacking, and spitting on "Gold Star" families (who lost military family members in combat) attending the American Legion Salute to Heroes Inaugural Gala Friday. Ryan Manion, who lost her brother in Iraq in 2007 and Amy Looney, whose husband died in Afghanistan in 2010, were spat upon by anti-Trump protestors while walking into and leaving the American Legion’s Salute to American Heroes Inaugural Gala Friday night. According to Manion, whose Facebook post on the incident has been shared almost 2,000 times, they were not black-bloc-style rioters but mostly regular protesters, and many of them were women.

“As we made our way through the crowd, we were spit at and called some of the worst and most vile things I have ever heard come out of a person’s mouth,” Manion wrote on Facebook. “These people had such hatred in their eyes when they screamed at us. After leaving the event we walked outside and was first pushed by a man in a mask hiding his face, then told by 2 women that we ruined this country… As the one woman screamed the other pushed up against me and colored all over my mom’s shawl I was wearing with permanent marker. I am angry and I am scared. My brother and Amy’s husband gave their lives to protect the freedoms that we hold so dear.”

Watch video here of a woman on a flight who demanded a quiet unobtrusive Donald Trump supporter seated next to her be moved, but quickly found out that’s not how the world works. She was escorted off the plane by police.

During Saturday’s Women’s March in Washington, DC, Ashley Judd ranted, “I am not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, like your wet dreams infused with your own genes.” Judd said, “I am not as nasty as racism, fraud, conflict of interest, homophobia, sexual assault, transphobia, white supremacy, misogyny, ignorance, white privilege. I’m not as nasty as using little girls like Pokemon before their bodies have even developed. I am not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, like your wet dreams infused with your own genes. But, yeah, I’m a nasty woman, a loud, vulgar proud woman. I’m not nasty, like the combo of Trump and Pence being served up to me in my voting booth. I’m nasty like the battles my grandmothers fought to get me into that voting booth. I’m nasty, like the fight for wage equality. Scarlett Johansson, why were the female actors paid less than half of what the male actors earned last year? See, even when we do go into higher paying jobs, our wages are still cut with blades sharpened by testosterone.” 

Along with the expected Nazi and Hitler references, the most common theme of the protestors centered around sex organs and sexual acts. the most used noun on any poster was some vulgar reference to a vagina. In fact, whether in print or of a more knit variety, there were more references to female genitalia at this women’s march than apparently in all of the dirty gas station men’s rooms across the U.S. Protestors donned “p**sy hats” and conducted what they deemed a “p**sy riot,”

(Interestingly, Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday’s Women’s March, that was held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group. She openly advocates for including Sharia law in the United States. Sharia law would punish the female protestors for vulgarity in publicly displaying “p**sy caps” and other brazen symbols of womanhood. It would also allow men to beat their wives and daughters for participating in the protest. Although she thinks President Trump will turn back the clock by 300 years, Sarsour forgets that Islam never left the Middle Ages in its primeval view of women.)

On-air, CNN analyst Bakari Sellers let slip a revelation about the Women’s March Saturday. “It’s not about women, it’s about liberalism,” he said.

Madonna gave a profanity-lace tirade (which the mainstream media dutifully broadcast) and said "I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House," Madonna performed two songs during her appearance at the Women’s March, “Express Yourself” and “Human Nature.” During “Human Nature,” the singer changed the song’s lyrics to include “Donald Trump, suck a d***.” Two days after the inauguration, Madonna tweeted and then deleted an obscene message to the president and his protection team, stating: “F— Donald Trump and F— the Secret Service.”

Comedian Chelsea Handler said Melania Trump 'barely speaks English' despite the First Lady speaking several languages (unlike Chelsea.) The First Lady speaks at least five languages, including English, French, Italian, German, and Slovene. This isn't the first time Chelsea has gone after Melania Trump's accent. She shared several tweets over the course of the presidential campaign making fun of the First Lady. When asked what she would tell the President if she saw him, she replied "F--k off. I mean, gross."

Josef Joffe, the editor-publisher of German weekly Die Zeit, suggests the easiest way to end the “Trump catastrophe” is to murder the president in the White House.

Nothing resembling this was done by conservatives following the election of Bill Clinton or Barack Obama.

Ultimately, what I believe is really at heart of these lawless actions is abortion. Whether screaming about Planned Parenthood, ObamaCare, the Supreme Court, bathroom privileges, redefining marriage, redefining gender, and so on, the progressive left -- especially the feminist left -- is consumed with sex. Most of this energy is concentrated on keeping the “right” to kill children in the womb. Tellingly, pro-life women were excluded from the march. When it initially looked like pro-life groups were going to be allowed to participate, the radical pro-abortionists went ballistic. Declaring that the killing of children in the womb is “central” to feminism, Jessica Valenti was “horrified” that pro-life women were going to be allowed to march with what she must deem as “real feminists.”

As one commentator said on television, the protests "make no sense" ... unless it's about abortion". The protestors resort to lawless and violent actions to defend the lawless and violent act of abortion which is now threatened. Their "freedom" to murder unborn babies is jeopardized. I heard one pro-abortion progressive activist on television say in a Freudian slip - "women should be able to choose to have their baby, or not to have their baby - an acknowledgement that what is aborted is not merely a "mass" of living cells, but a baby. Hollywood actor and producer Michael Ian Black tweeted to his two million Twitter followers that abortions save money. “Not a recommendation to the Republicans trying to replace Obamacare,” he typed, “but aborted babies are A LOT cheaper than babies carried to term."

There is no question of the progressive liberal worldview being propagated by the major media networks. As reported hereDuring their morning and evening news shows, the three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) covered the women’s march 129 times more than they did the 2016 March for Life last year. And it’s anyone’s guess as to whether or not they will cover the 2017 March for Life Friday. According to the Media Research Center’s analysis, the networks covered the Women’s March on Washington 129 times more than 2016’s March for Life. The difference, of course, is the event that was covered was pro-abortion while the other, largely ignored event, is pro-life. MRC notes that this pattern of coverage has been consistent over the years. Anyone depending upon the three broadcast network for news is bombarded with their fanciful and delusional worldview.  Their coverage of the annual ‘March for Life’ in two days, both in time and tone, will tell you everything you need to know about their support for abortion.

No picture better illustrates the demonic spirit behind progressive liberalism than this one ...

and no video better illustrates the fruit of progressive liberalism than this one. (What an indictment of his parents.)

As reality rudely slaps progressive liberals in the face, the mask has come off. The true nature and heart of that worldview is now on graphic display for all to see.
