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

10 Ways The Transgender Push Mirrors The Lobotomy Craze


Renee Gardner has penned an insightful and much needed editorial here entitled "10 Ways The Transgender Push Mirrors The Lobotomy Craze" (I suspect the majority of young people today have no idea what a lobotomy is.) She hits the nail on the head with her observations. The question is how many lives will be ruined until sanity is restored? It's must-reading, especially by parents who have been seduced over to the dark side by the press, the government, the entertainment industry and a medical establishment who all militantly push the transgender agenda.

Back in 1987, Dr. Valenstein reminded attendees at a science conference to remember the history of the lobotomy. He warned that “all the major factors that shaped its development are still with us today.”

…desperate patients and their families still are willing to risk unproven therapies when nothing else helps. Ambitious doctors can persuade some of the media to report untested cures with anecdotal ‘research.’.…It could happen again.

I believe it is happening again—not with lobotomies, but pediatric medical transition. The treatment of “transgender” children is gaining significant momentum, despite the lack of research and regardless of the significant risks involved.

... The history of this medical fad reveals that pioneering doctors, and the medical establishment that embraces them, can fail in their duty to “Do No Harm.” It shows people, even those who possess medical degrees, are imperfect and can champion poor science.

At initial glance, it may appear that lobotomies (which target assumed defects of the brain) and the medical transition of gender dysphoric children (which target assumed defects of the body) have little in common. But if you look past which body parts are “corrected,” you see that both are psychological conditions some doctors treat with drastic, irreversible medical interventions. There are a number of parallels. ....

Transgender anarchy is currently one of the enemy's most potent and effective strategies for it strikes at the very heart of what it means to be created in the image of God (Gen 1:27). Since Satan cannot of course directly attack God, his next best bet is to strike at the only part of creation made in the image of God - and he has spent decades laying the groundwork to effectively seduce the influential and power-holders of the culture,

Truth is the only weapon that can open the eyes blinded by this deceit and stop the carnage.
