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

Truth Is Still Evident Even When We Try To Hide It

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines tweeted the following pro-gay message in honor of Amsterdam’s Gay Pride festivities, featuring three sets of rainbow-print seatbelts: one with two “female” ends, another with two “male” ends, and the last with one male and one female end.


“It doesn’t matter who you click with,” the airline wrote in the caption. “Happy #PrideAmerstdam.”

However, it's quite obvious that the only seatbelt set that functionally "works" is the third set with male and female ends. The other two sets are useless; you can only "click" with the third set.

As this blog notes,

If KLM equipped its aircraft with set number one or number two, its entire fleet would be grounded for safety reasons. And if even one passenger’s seat was outfitted with double male or double female ends, the plane would not even be allowed to pull away from the gate because of the safety hazard presented to that one passenger.

Only the set of “complementary” seat belts protects passengers from harm. The others have no real value. In fact, they invite danger.

One of the best responses to the airline’s tweet came from Rick Canton: “Fly Royal Dutch Airlines, where your only chance of surviving a crash is buckling up the heterosexual way.”

..... In this way, the KLM ad offers a perfect explanation of why same-sex “marriage” is an impossible notion.

Truth is still evident even when we try to hide it.
