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 Violent Reaction Of Darkness To The Light Of Truth

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed (John 3:20)

Caution for offensive language

As if there already weren't enough reasons to pull your kids out of public school, this foul-language “gay” assistant principal in the Downingtown, Pennsylvania school district resigned from his post after being suspended without pay. His insane, angry reaction to two students quietly standing and protesting abortion on the public sidewalk outside his school graphically illustrates the hostility of darkness to the light of the gospel. (When initially confronted with his outrageous actions, he lied and claimed the protestors were banging on the cars. Doubtless, if the students did not have the foresight and wisdom to record what happened, it would have been his word against their's - and we all know whose side the culture would have taken.) The deeper the darkness, the greater the rage.
