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

"I’ve Had An Abortion, And That’s Why I Know Congress Needs To Stop Them"


Theresa Bonopartis wrote a sobering article here that every congressman and supreme court justice needs to read in entirety. The truth is blindingly painful to those who live in denial.

No one told me what was about to happen, or about the development of my baby. I was injected with saline, which caused me to go into labor as, I was later to find out, my son was thrashing around inside me as his body burned. After many hours, I gave birth to a dead baby boy.

I can still see him lying on the bed next to me as I stared in disbelief. I could not believe that this was legal. What was wrong with us that we had allowed this? My mind could not wrap around it, as I looked at his tiny hands and feet. How could this be possible? Yet it was, right there on the maternity ward where the woman next door to me was celebrating the birth of her child.

..... We have gone from making abortion “rare and legal” to enshrining it for all nine months at the expense of everything, including the long-term impact on the mothers we profess to care about. This negative impact is still being denied by those who have made abortion their god, despite women themselves speaking out on the pain and destruction it has caused.

How did our country come to this? Can average people continue to do nothing just because they feel it will never affect them? When will we honestly look at the repercussions of our more than 40 years of abortion legality, with 60 million unborn babies dead and countless numbers of mothers, fathers, and others suffering?


*******

I've said many times that all those who favor the legality of abortion should be forced to witness one and the aftermath. After all, if it's nothing more than ridding the body of a "mass of tissue", why should they not be willing to observe it so that they may be better prepared to defend it? Why would virtually none of them gladly observe? Because instinctively - deep down - they know something evil is occurring. The louder and more raucous the support for abortion, the greater the inherent suspicion that something is terribly wrong. Barring personal repentance, a fearsome judgment awaits all those who enabled legal abortion. And a day of reckoning approaches for the culture that practises child sacrifice on a wholesale level.
