I Affirm This
The Nashville Statement
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.

Perpetual Motion...
One of the people I really admire in my congregation came up today after our bible study and announced wryly that he had come to understand perpetual motion - that is, that he understood for the first time that there truly was a living, working pertetual motion machine.


I loved it. The more you pray, the more you pray.

What a perfect picture that is. Thanks Don!

    It -is- isn't it?

    Um, is yet indwelling sin not friction in this otherwise perpetual motion?

    I think there's always the resistant 'force' of sin and the persistant contrary 'force' of grace.

    Although I see the truth in it, I don't think there'll be truly perpetual motion until the new heavens & new earth. Not that friction is all bad... Bother me for a scientific pedant *wanders off scratching head*

    Surely one must allow for the friction of sin, else we would all pray without ceasing...

    Haha. "Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer." (Bunyan) Now there's a motion...
