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

Echoes of today's trends from the horrific past

"He (Hitler) talked like an American politician" ... "The government raised our children" ... "We could not pray anymore in school" ... "We could not go to church on Sunday anymore because Sunday was compulsory National Youth Day" ... "We were told not to listen to our parents anymore" ... "He (Hitler) nationalized our health care system ... a lot of doctors left the country" ... "We had tons of bureaucrats; that's how Hitler created jobs" ... "If the woman was pregnant (with mixed ethnicity), she was forced to have an abortion" ... "They were euthanizing (mentally-handicapped) children)" ... We had a federal police force" ... "We also had gun control ...  Bring your guns to the police station to register ... bring your guns to turn in" ... "Had we kept our guns, we would have kept our freedom" ... "When the people fear the government, that's tyranny. But when the government fears the people, that's liberty."
