Theological, Doctrinal, and Spiritual Musing - and whatever other else is on my mind when I notice that I haven't posted in a while.

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.

Why stop at baby dedications?
Marc, over at Purgatorio, got me to thinking again - why stop with baby dedications?

    Sure, why not? After all, doesn't Galatians 3:28 teach that we "are all one in Christ Jesus"?

    sorry, my pet has to make a profession of faith first.

    Marc, I think you just have to get the pet to agree to a few doctrinal distinctives:

    Owner: Okay TrixieBiscuit, if you believe that .... then meow once...

    Spot, do you renounce the devil, and all his works, and all his ways?

    Arf!

    [Spot's owners], do you promise to train Spot in the fear and admonition of the Lord?

    We do.


    Sad.

    And here after reading the title of your entry I thought you had finally relized that if your going to dedicate a child you might as well baptize him ;)

    I think they had a pet "dedication" service at Duke University a few months ago. I guess one must ask what is ultimately responsible for this trend and if this ritual might have any (loose) parallels in evangelical churches.
