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

We live in a culture that sows the seeds of fantasy



Dr. Kent Medlin is known around Willard, Missouri as one of those guys who speaks from his heart. For the past 14 years, he's been the superintendent of schools. He's a good man, a Christian man. Last May, Dr. Medlin delivered an address during commencement exercises at Willard High School. And being a Christian man, it was not all that surprising when he referenced the Bible and the Lord and invited folks to join him in prayer .......

t wasn't too long after the superintendent said, "Amen," that several members of the graduating class came down with a raging case of microaggressions. 

The near-hysterical snowflakes hollered about being offended and demanded an apology. 

"I came there to graduate, not go to church. It kind of ruined the rest of my night," Preston Schaeffer whined to the newspaper. "That was the last night of my high school experience and he chose to talk about religion instead of graduation."

Oh, the humanity of it all. The nation weeps with you, gentle snowflakes. 


"The fact that he put his rights over our rights, it really offended a lot of us," student Ashlynn Bradley told the newspaper. 

Story is here.
*******

This graphically illustrates the deplorable condition of many young kids today who were taught to believe that the world revolves around them. After school - IF they graduate as many seem to become perpetual students as long as the money holds out - reality will hit hard.

 He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty (Proverbs 28:19)
