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

Why You’ve Never Really Seen Hollywood Portray An Abortion Scene


Hollywood will never show an actual abortion because it would remove all doubt about whether abortion takes the life of an innocent human being. 

... Hollywood has a long history of supporting women’s choice of abortion. But even in today’s climate of radical selfism, it would be far too dangerous to show the truth of an abortion procedure. The truth has a tendency to change minds when it reaches people, and if people were to see the truth of abortion, it’s likely that many would cease to support the practice.

... To make sure that abortion does continue as a legal and legitimate choice, people who advocate for the practice have a vested interest in making sure that the reality stays hidden. The abortion industry has long hidden behind a veil of dishonesty, and Hollywood has certainly contributed to that. To expose the truth of abortion would undermine the foundation of deception on which the abortion industry rests, and Hollywood surely has no interest in that.

And Derick Wilburn points out the blatant hypocrisy of Hollywood here.

These mouthy Hollywood stars are millionaires many times over and as is the case with most human beings, their homes, automobiles and lifestyles tend to reflect their income and personal net worth. Turn on E!, MTV's "Cribs", pick up a magazine or tabloid sometime and take a look. They virtually all drive huge luxury SUV's or exotic sports cars that get nine miles-per-gallon (downhill, with a tail wind), live in 20,000 square foot, 12-bedroom mansions with theaters, bowling alleys, indoor pools, multiple kitchens, etc., which require heating, air conditioning, lawn maintenance, and generally suck up massive amounts of power -- mostly from coal-fired power plants (which the politicians they're supporting are trying to eliminate.) They travel on privately-chartered jets and get around city streets in limousines large enough for 10 occupants but carrying just one.

Moreover, many of these entertainers are motion-picture action stars. Could anything be more environmentally unfriendly than the production of today's action flicks? All are rife with car chases and massive explosions. The size and scale of stuff blowing up gets bigger and bigger. In each of these movies huge plumes of thick black smoke goes billowing into the sky to supposedly eat away at our ozone layer. But apparently that's okay if there's a paycheck in it for the actor. But you and I? These same people want you and me to upgrade to a 90% efficient furnace, drive a car the size of a shoebox, and heat our homes to no more than 68 degrees to help save the planet.

Virtually all of the Hollywood elitists march in lockstep with the Democrat Party and its freakishly cultish devotion to abortion and gun-control legislation. They scream bloody murder when a deranged person walks into a building and shoots the place up, but look the other way when it comes to the million a year who are liquefied and sucked out of their own mother's wombs. "We've got to get rid of the guns to save lives", but we've got to keep "choice" so we can keep on destroying lives. Talk about having it both ways. They will volunteer time to support a cause trying to save the eggs of the Dusky Seaside Sparrow but would not lift one finger to save a human being in the same state of existence.
