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

Shaking Their Fists At God With Their Fists Full Of Money


Tim Gill is a software programmer who made his fortune during the dot-com boom and has since poured more than $400 million into advancing the LGBT movement. The megadonor bankrolling the LGBT movement and its allies in the Democratic Party says he will continue to “punish the wicked” who hold traditional views about sexual morality. Despite the legalization of gay marriage in all 50 states, tech millionaire Tim Gill said he is not satisfied with the movement’s progress.

Story is here.

*******

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says a billionaire's money will not alter the truth of the Bible.

"The problem is he's got it completely backwards, which is what the prophet Isaiah predicted in chapter 5 verse 20, right? Good is evil and evil is good," he says, paraphrasing the Old Testament verse. "So it is people who are trying to normalize the sin of homosexuality as an identity and even change the definition of marriage to accommodate what God called an abomination. That is wicked."

"Tim Gill is a bigot and he's an intolerant bigot at that," LaBarbera reacts. "He wants to squelch dissent; he wants to squelch the very Judeo/Christian values that help make our country great. But all Tim Gill's millions or billions or whatever he has cannot eradicate God's truth. The Bible stands true yesterday, today, and forever."


LaBarbera says Gill is only one of many wealthy people shaking their fists at God with their fists full of money – "and it will not alter the truth one bit," he adds.

This is nothing new. Nero painted the Roman Christians as enemies of the republic, unleashing horrendous persecution. Scripture predicts unpredecented persecution of believers at the end of the age, This is a foretaste of what's coming. But none of this will alter the truth one iota.
