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

Study: 92% of left-wing activists live with their parents and one in three is unemployed


A study by the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution reveals the vast majority of left-wing protestors arrested in Berlin are young men who still live with their parents. A third of them were unemployed, and 92 per cent still live with their parents. Story is here,

I suspect similar statistics exist for the progressive leftists who commit violent protests in the United States. Their parasitic worldview selfishly depends upon others for essential needs and demands they be spoon-fed everything.

Salvation is indeed a free, unearned gift, but rewards are for merit achievement, not for just showing up. You want something, work for it. Success is not guaranteed to anyone, ever. Graduating college with a ridiculously overpriced degree in a totally worthless discipline does not entitle one to a corner office, a six-figure income, and keys to the Executive Bathroom.

Lenin and Saul Alinsky called people like these protesters “useful idiots”. The protesters naively follow rich, sequestered out-of-touch politicians, activists, billionaires, actors and entertainers who have no intention of getting their hands dirty. They gleefully participate in riots funded and orchestrated by people with their own agenda who don't give a hoot about the protester's hopes and dreams and who will cheerfully walk over their corpses to achieve their goals.

Life is hard in this fallen world. You don’t always get to do what you want, when you want. And no one owes you anything. But there is God-given satisfaction in hard work and delayed gratification. One learns this if and when they grow up.

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might (Ess 9:10, ESV)

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men (Col 3:23, ESV)
