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

"“Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying."

The quote in the title is from famed science fiction author Arthur C. Clark. While I belive the first possibility is far more likely, this movie is a good preview of the second possibility given that the cosmos is fallen. Scripture is clear that all creation was touched by the Curse and now suffers a “bondage of corruption” (Romans 8:20–22).
