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

Sex change regret is on the rise, so why aren't we talking about it?

Around five years ago, Professor Miroslav Djordjevic, the world-leading genital reconstructive surgeon, received a visit at his Belgrade clinic: a transgender person who had undergone surgery at different clinic to remove male genitalia - and since changed their mind.

That was the first time Prof Djordjevic had ever been contacted to perform a so-called gender reassignment “reversal” surgery. Over the next six months, another six people also approached him, similarly wanting to reverse their procedures. They came from countries all over the western world, Britain included, united by an acute sense of regret.

At present, Prof Djordjevic has a further six prospective people in discussions with his clinic about reversals and two currently undergoing the process itself; reattaching the male genitalia is a complex procedure and takes several operations over the course of a year to fully complete...

As the article asks, "why aren't we talking about it?" The answer is simple: because it contradicts the transgender lunacy currently being pushed by the culture at large. Back in Feb 2016, I linked here to an article warning of growing sex change regret - something the LGBT community clearly does not want publicized.

... a national survey of more than 6,500 transgenders that asked the question, “Have you tried to commit suicide?” Forty-one percent answered, “Yes.” One need look no further for compelling evidence of widespread transgender and sex change regret.

... A Swedish study from 2003 found that post-operative mortality and suicide rates for transsexuals are many times higher than the general population. And that’s in Sweden, probably the friendliest environment on the planet for transgender individuals.

As noted here, one person with sex change regret came to the realization that his fascination with transgenderism was actually a fabrication born of mental disorders. More with regret are chronicled here. Those who dare to speak the truth are immediately castigated and ostracized by the culture at large.

As reported here, a psychotherapist who counsels transgenders sought to conduct a study on people who make the surgical transition but want to reverse it; however, a university killed the project because it was “politically incorrect.” The conflict developed at Bath Spa University in Bath, England, when James Caspian wanted to write a thesis on people who “detransition.” It would have been part of his master’s degree in counseling and psychotherapy at the school, which was known as Bath College of Higher Education until 2005. Caspian described the decision as astonishing and a betrayal of academic research values

All sin ultimately brings regret. The key question is what kind of regret?

Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death (2 Cor 7:10, ESV)
