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 Theology of Thomas Aquinas

While this video presents the Roman Catholic perspective, there is much to be gained for anyone to immerse themselves in the writings of Thomas Aquinas ...

For those that may be vehemently anti-Catholic, the following powerful video from Gordon Conwell (a strongly evangelical Protestant college), has something to say on Thomism regarding faith and reason. There is good reason that RC Sproul picks Thomas as the most brilliant theologian of all time.
