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 Deadly Fruit Of Gender Chaos


There is a sad story here of a woman divorcing her husband of 17 years because he finally decided that he is gay.

What would you do if you found out your husband or wife was gay?

This is something that is increasingly happening to couples all over the country, and many end up divorcing so that the gay spouse can freely pursue a gay lifestyle. In recent days, the case of Jill and Jeff Smokler has made headlines all over the country. Jill has authored several successful parenting books and is also the editor-in-chief of a parenting website called Scary Mommy. But now she finds herself at the center or a raging controversy. After 17 years of marriage and after having three children together, Jill and Jeff have decided to divorce because of Jeff's sexuality.


*******

What is especially tragic is the husband's perspective here on his ex-wife's web site. He concludes with this sobering account of when he unexpectedly encountered his ex-wife in Target ...

As we walked out of Target and toward our cars, a million pounds lighter from the disclosure of our truth, Jill locked her arm in mine. A couple steps out of the store, she turned to me and asked, “ Are you as happy as I am?”

And I was.

*******

"Are you as happy as I am? .... And I was."

Gender chaos was sowed decades ago with the birth of the sexual revolution. It germinated and bore ripe fruit under the Obama administration. Divorced from reality, it is now reaping catastrophic destruction across the culture in marriages, families, and children. Those that gullibly ate the fruit and naively believe they are now truly happy will soon discover how illusory the fleeting pleasures of sin are. Unfortunately though, the destructive consequences of their foolishness will not evaporate like their "happiness", and all that will be left in their lives is smoldering ruin.

The good news though is that there is Someone who can rescue them, who alone can restore sanity, resurrect dead relationships and bring genuine lasting joy. Jesus Christ is the only one that can. There is no hope anywhere else.
