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 Egalitarian Dream Of Socialism Really Means Everyone Becomes Equally Miserable

There's an interesting tibdit here regarding the mainstream media's reluctance to cover the spiraling disintegration in Venezuela, and their refusal to equate it with the disastrous socialist government policies. Venezuela elected the socialist Hugo Chavez as President in 1999. Internationally, Chávez aligned himself with the Marxist–Leninist governments of Fidel and then Raúl Castro in Cuba, and the socialist governments of Evo Morales (Bolivia), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Daniel Ortega (Nicaragua). His presidency was seen as a part of the socialist "pink tide" sweeping Latin America. Chávez

"I often say only half-jokingly to students on college campuses who are all in with Bernie Sanders that if they think socialism is such a wonderful economic model: How about a one-way ticket to Caracas?" Stephen Moore, an economic policy analyst and Distinguished Visiting Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, wrote of Venezuela's capitol in a Washington Times op-ed published May 21.

"You'd be a fool to go there today. Venezuela is a human-rights crisis of epic proportions, with mass hunger, mass poverty, despair, ghetto upon ghetto, and a mass exodus of private businesses and anyone with money," Moore added.

"The burgeoning resistance throws Molotov cocktails, rocks, and even human feces at the security forces during the nonstop rioting. 'I don't fear death because this life is crap,' one protester told the WSJ," Moore added. "It turns out that 'share the wealth' eventually means there is no wealth, and the egalitarian dream means everyone becomes equally poor. Venezuela is on its way to becoming the next North Korea."


Rich in natural resources, Venezuela is estimated to have the largest oil reserves in the world. The populace was deceived into electing a socialist government whose policies have destroyed the country. Anarchy and chaos now reign in much of the country.

If the pipe dreams of the progressive elites in the U.S. come to fruition, the same thing will eventually happen here with our culture resembling the 1981 movie "Escape From New York". In that case, arm yourself (while you still can) to protect your family and loved ones. The egalitarian dream of socialism really means everyone becomes equally miserable, except of course the elites at the top.

Mirroring A Great Cosmic Conflict In The Heavenlies

Economist Martin Armstrong warns on his web site here that the United States is heading towards civil war because of the refusal of out-of-touch elite Washington politicians to acknowledge reality.

"They think this ‘populism’ is over with [French president Emmanuel] Macron’s victory in France so it’s time to get rid of Trump and it will all be OK again ..... I have never seen such an all out effort on a massive coordinated effort to reject the people’s demand for reform,” he wrote. “This is HIGHLY dangerous for we can very well move toward civil war.” (bold-face emphasis is in the original.)

"Our model also warns that [the] United States can break up as a result of this by 2032-2040 ..... There is a very REAL plot to overthrow Trump, led by the political establishment and aided by the mainstream press,”

He also warns here that the press may be sowing the seed of their own destruction:

... in the good old days, as they say, when the people rose up in revolution they went after those in government or the bankers. In Florence, during the 14th century they stormed the palaces of the bankers and burned them to the ground. Shakespeare wrote of one revolution saying during the 15th century in  Henry VI, Part2, Act IV, Scene 2:  “The first thing we do is kill all the [king’s] lawyers [prosecutors].”  This time, they may include the press who seem to be conspiring against the people in the very same manner if not even worse.


For now, the United States is currently the most powerful nation on the planet and Washington D.C. is the seat of that incredible power. But per the axiom that "power corrupts", the vast majority of Washington elites and media (both conservative and liberal) have been sucked up into the twin delusions (1) that they know what is best and (2) that the world revolves around them. At heart, the problem is that they jettisoned truth and substituted their own man-made version. Living in a fantasy, they are figuratively fiddling while Rome burns. Soon though, the conflagration initiated by their foolishness will be beyond even their ability and resources to extinguish. Barring supernatural national repentance and reform, we have probably already crossed the event horizon and are heading towards disaster.

We need to keep perspective though. The unrest, violence and gathering turmoil on Earth mirrors a great cosmic conflict in the Heavenlies between good and evil (i.e., Daniel 10:12-14; Revelation 12, Isaiah 14:12-14, Ezekiel 28:12-17.) As the Heavenly clash intensifies and nears final resolution, so too will the earthly battle between truth/falsehood and good/evil, reach fever pitch.

But there is shelter from the coming storm ...

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. (2 Tim 3:12-15)

God has apparently released the restraints and is allowing the full fruit of rebellion to germinate

More churches are yielding before the enormous pressure of LGBT activists and affirming a lifestyle that is clearly condemned in Scripture. As reported here, the latest is a megachurch in Orlando that catered to "The Reformation Project", a Trojan Horse group that seeks to infiltrate churches nationwide and trap them into affirming the LGBT lifestyle.

"The Reformation Project is designed to change the church to affirm an LGBTQ lifestyle as normative, and it appears Pastor Joel Hunter has fallen into that trap. For him to host that pro-LGBT event is heresy," said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. "While we all are sinners and all are welcome at the foot of the cross, Jesus also told the adulteress to go and sin no more. He did not affirm her in the sin of adultery, nor did he affirm people in their continued sin. He saves us from our sin. The doesn't mean we do not falter, but we cannot distort His grace as a license to continue to sin."  

Staver continued:

Matthew Vines thinks it is OK to keep sinning and convince yourself it's not a big deal. Vines says the Bible only condemns lust, not same-sex committed relationships. He believes Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing to do with homosexuality, and other passages in the New Testament do not mean what they say. In other words, being LGBTQ is okay and the Bible says nothing contrary. Human sexuality is not to be taken lightly or compromised. The message of the Reformation Project and this event are wrong and an affront to Jesus and the Bible. The church needs to live in the resurrection power of Jesus and stop compromising to be just like the sinful culture we are called to redeem.

While the pastor denied post-event supporting the LGBT lifestyle, the fact that he allowed someone to speak who clearly does support the lifestyle, contradicts his statement. Actions speaks louder than words. Would the pastor allow a serial adulterer to make his case before the church on why adultery is permissible? Or an polygamist? Or a pedophile? Or a producer and distributer of pornography? Of course not.

The increasing capitulation to LGBT activists with more churches falling like dominos, is Romans 1:18-32 in action. God has apparently released the restraints and is allowing the full fruit of rebellion to germinate.

Mainstream journalists are only a highly visible remnant of the vast company of deceived

Bernie Goldberg has an editorial here wrestling with the pervasive liberal bias of mainstream journalism (which of course they vehemently deny.)

Why then does journalism studies tend to attract more liberals?

In Psychology Today, Dr. Barbara Oakley (PhD) is a self-acknowledged "classical liberal" and offers here her discerned reasons:

Several decades ago, I spent a couple seasons working for the Soviets as a Russian translator—hauling in fish by day and slugging back samogon by night.  (Well, sometimes slugging back homemade vodka by day, too—that's the Russians for you.) I was curious about one of politics’ biggest questions: is extreme socialism beneficial?

What I found was so much propaganda about the wonders of Soviet Socialist Mankind and the horrors of Western Democracy that the people exposed to it might as well have had electrodes implanted to control their thoughts.

.... Most journalists take a number of psychology, sociology, political science, and humanities courses during their early years in college.  Unfortunately, these courses have long served as ideological training programs—ignoring biological sources of self-serving, corrupt, and criminal behavior for a number of reasons, including lack of scientific training; postmodern, antiscience bias; and well-intentioned, facts-be-damned desire to have their students view the world from an egalitarian perspective.  Instead, these disciplines ram home the idea that troubled behavior can be fixed through expensive socialist programs that, coincidentally, provide employment opportunities for graduates of the social sciences.  Modern neuroscience is showing how flawed many of these policies have been—structural differences in the brains of psychopaths, for example, help explain why remedial programs simply helped them become better at conning people. 

Academics in the social sciences tend to give short shrift to the dramatic failures and corruption within US educational system or unions. (Think here of the Detroit Public School system, or the National Education Association, whose former officers have written: “The NEA has been the single biggest obstacle to education reform in this country. We know because we worked for the NEA.”)  Instead, because of their ideological biases, professors often emphasize that corporations are the bad guys, while unions and the government—at least the type of government that supports higher paychecks for social science professors and jobs for their students—are good.  This type of teaching makes the Democratic Party and its increasingly socialist ideals seem naturally desirable, and criticism about how those ideals will supposedly be met less likely.  (How many social scientists predicted that the billions spent on busing and the Projects would worsen the situations they were meant to solve, as ultimately happened?)  It’s no wonder that journalists enter the profession as Democrats, then keep their beliefs intact through all-too-common tendencies to conform. 

... Journalists sometimes say conservatives and political independents don’t go into journalism because they’re more interested in money.  The unspoken message, of course, is that conservatives are greedy bastards who don’t have a social conscience.  But many conservatives go through college to become stay-at-home housewives—they’re hardly Gordon Geckos.  More likely, conservatives are turned off by the propaganda dished out in their social science classes. Although I’m a classical liberal myself, last semester my daughter and I got a chuckle at whatever Marxist howler her well-meaning professor spouted that day in her introductory sociology class.  She’d have hardly gotten the A she received if she’d constantly challenged that establishment.

This also ignores journalism’s own issues with greed and corruption—most despicably with Walter Duranty, who covered the Soviet Union for the New York Times and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1932 for a series of stories that uncritically backed Stalinist propaganda, denied the Ukrainian famine, and defended Stalin's infamous trials. Duranty lived lavishly in Stalin’s good graces.  (Meanwhile, the Times has never returned the Pulitzer.)  More recently, the New York Times’ fraudulent reporter Jayson Blair received a mid-six figure advance for his memoirs—even the most egregious reporters can make big bucks and become media darlings.

... having worked among the Soviets, I know that large groups of very intelligent people can fall into a collective delusion that what they are doing in certain areas is the right thing, when it's actually not the right thing at all.  It’s rather like the Skinnerian viewpoint on psychology.  

... If you’re a journalist, want to help people and want to tell the truth, what truth are you going to tell? Why, the truth you think helps people, of course! 

Technically, that’s the truth. 

But it’s very different than the truth.


It's fascinating to read such honest reflection and admission from someone who is a self-acknowledged "classical liberal." (She apparently took the red pill offered by Morpheus.) Tragically it's not just liberals who live out a concocted fantasy in Wonderland. In fact, everyone outside the saving grace of Christ is deluded about true reality. Without Christ, we do figuratively have electrodes implanted by the enemy to blind us to reality. Mainstream journalists are only a highly visible remnant of the vast company of deceived.

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (2 Cor 4:4, NIV)

How Journalism Turns Into Propaganda

In Nov 2016, Stella Morabito detailed here how journalism turns into propaganda.

So it’s high time we analyze more closely the relationship between the media and power elites. To do that, we need to look at how and why elites conscript journalists, and why journalists can’t resist the bait. The enticements come as access, privilege, prestige, fame, influence, and very high salaries for those in the limelight.

Not all mainstream journalists are fallen, but those who resist bias tend not to be household names ..... In the end, we should remember that journalists’ weaknesses are simply human weaknesses. There are several reasons their level of prejudice has risen so high. But prime among them is how much our society has come to de-value the old ideals of virtue and honor.

.... Somehow, large parts of our civil society have succumbed to that base but instinctive drive in people to lord it over others. That drive, as always, motivates those who tend to seek the reins of power. History is filled with unsavory characters determined to reset the universe so it revolves around them.

They have always—always—had major quibbles with the free flow of information. They view objective journalism as a bad joke, or in the words of Vera’s mentor above, a “bourgeois and reactionary” thing.

The point is that freedom of expression, when legally protected and practiced universally, stands in the way of their accumulation of power. So the first order of business for a power-monger is to break down free expression, to control the language. That’s a tall order when the public is well-informed. To combat a high-information public, community “organizers” have been hard at work pushing policies that cultivate ignorance, vulnerability, and scarcity.

As they march through the institutions of a society, these conditions produce a culture of confusion, dependence, fear, and resentment. Once power-mongers control all the outlets of communication—particularly the media, Hollywood, and academia—their propaganda can do its work. The work of propaganda is to condition people through political correctness to get with their program. This, in a word, means to promote the elites’ accumulation of power in perpetuity.

.... Corruption on such a mass scale is most likely in a culture that rejects the idea that humans are by nature highly corruptible. This false assumption allows people to operate under the illusion that they are not susceptible to manipulation. That illusion provides optimal conditions for manipulation.

... Political correctness is the job description of most journalists today. It aims to saturate the masses in the elite’s preferred narrative while suppressing any competing narrative. The idea is to make sure that only those willing to play this intimidation game get a piece of the power pie. In that way, the cronyism worms deeper into the system. There is no logical end point, as it can only keep feeding on itself and get more extreme and polarizing unless something from the outside manages to stop it in its tracks.

It’s plain old-fashioned hubris, dangerous and commonplace. So journalists get this way the same way anybody gets this way: through pride, through greed, and all of the other oh-so-quaint “seven deadly sins” that our elites would tell us do not exist. Left unchecked, these tendencies metastasize. If we allow ourselves to be unaware of the dangers of unchecked pride and greed—or for that matter envy, anger, sloth, lust, and gluttony in all their forms—we fall. That’s a law of human nature, just as gravity is a law of physics.

... Anyone who tries to report objectively won’t make it through the meat grinder of political correctness and the filters they must penetrate. This drives any hint of independent thought out of journalists who may have been inclined towards independent reporting.

Now combine a lapdog mentality in the media with elites who have a problem with freedom of information because it levels the playing field. Freedom of information results in the most equal distribution of power possible. Well, that can’t be good for power elites intent to keep and exercise power, right? So wherever power elites regulate the flow of information, you’re only going to get propaganda instead of hard news.

.... Today, when I hear a news outlet talk about its “programming,” I can’t help but think of programming computers or cult recruits. Listening to the news is more like an exercise in thought reform—in which you are being told or nudged in how to think about an issue—than it is the objective flow of actual news you can digest and think through on your own.

... The tragedy is that without real journalism and a free flow of real information, people lose the ability to exercise real thought. Without being able to actually think things through with the grounding of objective morality, there is no morality, period. Unchecked propaganda that suppresses real communication is extremely dangerous because it turns all of the above into a certainty. Sadly, journalists have become all too complicit in that.
