Profile
Daniel of Doulogos Name:Daniel
Home: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
About Me: I used to believe that evolution was reasonable, that homosexuality was genetic, and that people became Christians because they couldn't deal with the 'reality' that this life was all there was. I used to believe, that if there was a heaven - I could get there by being good - and I used to think I was more or less a good person. I was wrong on all counts. One day I finally had my eyes opened and I saw that I was not going to go to heaven, but that I was certainly going to suffer the wrath of God for all my sin. I saw myself as a treasonous rebel at heart - I hated God for creating me just to send me to Hell - and I was wretched beyond my own comprehension. Into this spiritual vacuum Jesus Christ came and he opened my understanding - delivering me from God's wrath into God's grace. I was "saved" as an adult, and now my life is hid in Christ. I am by no means sinless, but by God's grace I am a repenting believer - a born again Christian.

The Buzz


Daniel's posts are almost always pastoral and God centered. I appreciate and am challenged by them frequently. He has a great sense of humor as well.
- Marc Heinrich

His posts are either funny or challenging. He is very friendly and nice.
- Rose Cole

[He has] good posts, both the serious like this one, and the humorous like yesterday. [He is] the reason that I have restrained myself from making Canadian jokes in my posts.
- C-Train

This post contains nothing that is of any use to me. What were you thinking? Anyway, it's probably the best I've read all day.
- David Kjos

Daniel, nicely done and much more original than Frank the Turk.
- Jonathan Moorhead

There are some people who are smart, deep, or funny. There are not very many people that are all 3. Daniel is one of those people. His opinion, insight and humor have kept me coming back to his blog since I first visited earlier this year.

Candidating...
I have been asked to candidate at one, or possibly two churches in Saskatchewan.

As some of you know, I am presently working as a computer programmer for the Province of Manitoba in Canada, but for the last four or five years I have been studying for the ministry.

Last year, and again this year, I have been mentored specifically for the role of "Pastor" by Pastor Bill Mcleod, with the expectation that eventually I would be called to pastor a church.

In this capacity I have been preaching at various churches, and whatnot for the past two years. Yesterday Pastor Bill mentioned that Harold Lutzer (brother of famed pastor Erwin Lutzer of the Moody Church in Chicago) mentioned a couple of churches in Saskatchewan that were looking for a pastor. Pastor Bill asked if I would be interested in candidating, and I answered in the affirmative.

That isn't a picture of one of the churches by the way - it is just a stock photo of a nice country church that I thought would spruce up the post.

Harold will likely phone me some time next week (his schedule is pretty busy) and get back to me about candidating. In the meantime, if you are inclined, pray for these churches - one is in Weyburn, the other somewhere else in Saskatchewan - don't ask God to put in me either of them, but they do need an undershepherd - pray that God provides. If you are further inclined - pray that I would set my own self aside and stay hyper sensitive to God's will in this.

Thanks.
