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.

When the culture insists that men and women are interchangeable, the floodgates are open for cultural disintegration

It happened, late one afternoon, when David arose from his couch and was walking on the roof of the king's house, that he saw from the roof a woman bathing; and the woman was very beautiful.  And David sent and inquired about the woman. (2 Sam 11:2)

In contradiction to the claims of an increasing number today that there is no real difference between men and women and that each can easily become the other, Scripture affirms there is in fact a huge difference. Science reveals that every cell in a man's body is male and every cell in a female's body is female; nothing we can do will change that. Sex change is biologically impossible.

Men and women are different in multiple ways. One key way is the effect of the visual. The fact that men and women are different in their response to visual stimulation is recognized by secular psychologists. The article here entitled "The Triggers of Sexual Desire: Men vs. Women" expounds on it. There is a reason that visual pornography caters almost exclusively to men, while written "soft-porn" (think romance novels) caters almost exclusively to women. This difference between men and women to visual stimuli is not merely psychological - i.e., see here in the medical article entitled "Gender Difference in Brain Activation to Audio-Visual Sexual Stimulation". Any woman who does not believe that men are visually stimulated will quickly discover otherwise if she walks around topless. Transgender activists are playing with fire with their insane demands that teenage girls be permitted to shower with teenage boys.

When the culture foolishly insists that men and women are interchangeable, the floodgates are open for cultural disintegration.
