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

Every Day Together Is A Gift


A Texas woman shared a heartbreaking photo on Valentine’s Day appearing to show a man dining at a restaurant seated across from his late wife’s ashes. The unidentified man is neatly dressed and appears to be crying into a folded napkin. There are two place settings on the table and two glasses of wine. There also appeared to be a Valentine’s Day card on the table that reads “You & Me.”

Chasidy Gwaltney, of Corpus Christi, shared the photo on Facebook. She said she first thought the man was waiting for his date, according to Fox 8 Live. She said she soon realized that nobody would be showing up.

"I saw something today that has made me remember that we won't always have each other to hold, talk to, love, play with or even just aggravate every now and then," Gwaltney said in her message. "This man looks like he is spending Valentine's Day alone at first glance but that is actually his wife in that very beautiful bottle sitting on the table."
