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.

If you are following the Da Vinci Code Series by White...
For those of you have lived under a rock this past year - the Da Vinci Code is your standard cross genre Creole combining the detective, thriller, and conspiracy theory genres under one umbrella.

The novel is pulp by all standards - unapologetically heretical and blatantly inaccurate historically - it claims that the Roman Catholic Church has worked to cover up the true history of Jesus.

James White has been been doing a series on the book - I haven't been following it all - but I did like this latest part because it records a very early Christian testimony (about 140 years after Christ's death) - one that predates the council of Nicea and the Constantinian conversion by more than a century.

The Da Vinci Code Part V

    I do not read such kind of books...but I do wonder if perhaps what you mention as being inaccurate is more than you might think...have read some accounts by some who were on the inside...that give one pause for thought.

    Whatever the reasons, we today are so VERY far off in some areas! Why we even think we can tell GOD HOW we will choose to worship HIM and of course, HE will automatically agree! Uh huh, indeed! Mixing the profane with the holy has become commonplace...and HE has plenty to say about that in the OT...oh, but wait, we aren't supposed to read THOSE verses, right?

    sigh...still trying to learn truth, Elizabeth

    I still can't believe that Opie would direct such a flick. What would Andy say?

    Beth - have no fear, the historical inaccuracies I mention are freely known and quite well documented by reputable people. Even if we had no bible to tell us just how ridiculous and erroneous most of the claims made in the book are - we would still have the historical record to show just how impossible the "theory" is.

    Brad - Great to have you back buddy! I too was surprized to learn that Mr. Howard would be directing.

    Daniel,

    A good friend of mine is co-authoring a book on the DaVinci-Code, not so much to debunk it (although thats how it will be marketed) but to lay some Christological groundwork in peoples mind using TDVC as a foil.

    Marc - you will have to let me know when it is published, and what it is called. Might be an interesting read!
