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

His "radical new Christian inclusion" = heresy

As reported here by the BBC, the Church of England’s main legislative body has rejected a church report saying marriage can only be between a man and a woman. England’s state Anglican church is deeply divided over the issue, with liberals calling on it to change Christian doctrine on the issue while conservatives insist such a change is impossible. The Archbishop of Canterbury concluded the debate by calling for a "radical new Christian inclusion".

But his "radical new inclusion" would have appalled the early church. While homosexual marriage is a "line in the sand" that many 21st century churches simply will not cross, others are abdicating two thousand years of orthodoxy in favor of heresy.

As militant homosexuals demand not just "tolerance" but an affirming embrace of their lifestyle - and an increasing number of political leaders spinelessly follow suit - expect those churches that remain faithful to the Biblical picture of marriage to pay an increasingly stiff price.
