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.

Try to imagine what would have happened had this been a Christian at a Muslim gathering

Viewer Discretion for Obscene Language

S. DAKOTA: A Muslim man entered a Christian conference being held in a hotel. He started cursing and livestreaming video on Facebook. He was wearing a t-shirt that said, “I’m American, I’m a Muslim, I open carry, I conceal carry, and I’m dangerous only if you’re stupid.” A security guard approached him and told him to leave. Once back in his car, he brandished an arsenal of weapons, including two military-style rifles with loaded magazines and three handguns, and made several threats of “Be scared, be F—ing scared. Be terrified.”

After a week of growing controversy and public pressure, authorities in South Dakota on Friday arrested him. It was a complete turn-around from earlier statements by police and prosecutors, who maintained that the Muslim man was just exercising his First and Second Amendment rights and had “broken no laws.” (Try to imagine what would have happened had this been a Christian at a Muslim gathering.)

The original threats by Ehab Jaber were made April 9 during the Worldview Weekend Rally in Sioux Falls, and Jaber followed up with more threatening posts on his Facebook page, including one on April 19 where he challenged his fellow Americans who oppose him to a “shoot out.” Leaders of the Christian Worldview Rally who felt directly targeted by the threatening video are now calling for the resignation of the Sioux Falls police chief and the local prosecutor who sat on the case for nearly two weeks before making an arrest.

The local prosecutor for Lincoln County, Tom Wollman, told WND on April 17 that Jaber had First Amendment rights and Second Amendment rights that had to be considered, and that police on the scene would have made an arrest if they’d thought Jaber had stepped outside the boundaries of those rights.

But that all changed on Friday evening two days after more articles appeared in the U.K.’s Daily Mail and the New York Post, which labeled Jaber an “Angry Muslim.” Police raided Jaber’s house Friday and arrested him on one count of making terroristic threats. While the SWAT team was inside Jaber’s home they also found an undisclosed amount of alleged methamphetamine and Jaber will face separate drug charges related to that discovery.

Islam - the "religion of peace".
