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

The Greatest Danger To The Church Today

Walter Martin was one of the greatest apologists of the 20th century. During his lifetime, he repeatedly warned of the insidious cancer within the church that has always represented the greatest danger to the health and well-being of the Body of Christ. Thirty years after this message, the veracity of his warning rings ever truer with much of the church sadly succumbing to the cancer.

.... fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. Therefore be alert ... (Acts 20:29-31, ESV)
