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.

You know its sad when...
We all know (or should know by now) that practice of holding a communion ceremony in honor of the birth of Christ - was not something that Jesus asked us to do.

Nor is it likely that the 25th of December is the actual birth date of Christ - we just accept this holiday as part of our "tradition" and shop along with the rest of them.

There is nothing evil about celebrating Christmas in and of itself, and that isn't really the point of this post - there are enough people out there (every season) whining about the pagan origins of our "most sacred" Christian holy-day; that I need not jump on that bandwagon.

My point today is only to lament about the state of our society. In the name of "everyone is right" - we dare not make our Christmas cards too Christian. In fact, Christian themed Christmas cards have become a niche market.

How ironic it seems to me that I have to search in order to find a Christmas card with any Christian content.

The Christmas cards I am finding today bring glory to winter and candy canes, and the occasional reindeer (see typical holiday card above: what a wonderful way to recognize how much we love snow...
