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

Only seven countries allow abortion beyond 20 weeks

Only seven countries allow abortion beyond 20 weeks. The United States tragically remains one of them following the failure of the U.S. Senate to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The other six countries are North Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Canada and the Netherlands. The Senate bill, which required a three-fifths majority to pass, received 51 yea votes and 46 nays. Among the nay votes were a remarkable number of Roman Catholics, including former Vice-Presidential candidate Tim Kaine, Maria Cantwell, Susan Collins, Catherine Cortez Masto, Dick Durbin, Kirsten Gillbrand, Heidi Heitkamp, Patrick Leahy, Ed Markey, Claire McCaskill, Bob Menendez, Lisa Murkowski, Patty Murray, and Jack Reed. During the campaign, Kaine often boasted of his Jesuit education and Catholic credentials, insisting that he was a devout Catholic, despite his public support for abortion on demand.

Because the Roman Catholic Church doctrinally opposes abortion, some bishops have properly threatened to refuse communion or even impose excommunication upon Catholic politicians who support abortion.

But Protestants are often unfortunately no better, as far too many politicians use contorted reasoning to support legal abortion while pretending to be against it. They will however, stand accountable one day for their inaction to stop the cultural fratricide (see what I wrote earlier here.)
