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.

Everyone and his mother knows why the networks and the print journals haven't shown the cartoons -- they fear Muslims blowing up their buildings and stabbing their editors to death. The only people who deny this are the news media. They all claim that they won't show the cartoons because of sensitivity to Muslim feelings.

    Is this a call for a Mo (hammed) cartoon contest in the blogosphere? I would like the boys at Jib Jab to create a good skit.

    Excellent points in that article.
    A good book on that subject is "Double Vision: How the Press Distorts America's View of the Middle East," by Ze'ev Chafets. The author was born in Wisconsin and emigrated to Israel in 1967. After service in the Israeli Army, he became director of the Government Press Office there. He wrote the book in 1985.

    One thing the article does is highlight the success that terrorism is having in the US. It is because of "terror" that the US media is cowering in fear of retaliation.

    It is this same fear that keeps many people from speaking openly on the topic. They are intimidated - who wants to put themselves in harms way after all?

    The mood in America reminds me of Jericho when the Israelites had crossed the Jordan.

    Right on target. I suspect that the "outrage" we have seen is not outrage at all, but is in fact an awareness that the world fears the Muslims and so they are pressing their advantage. Kind of like the big, bad wolf huffin' and puffin'.

    I think it is a contrived protest. They want to stir things up. It is interesting to note in history, that prior to the populace coming against the Jewish in Germany, there were many riots, some stirred up by false photos of Jewish people. The Mohammed cartoons came out months ago. A danish Muslim posted false cartoons recently, intending to stir up Muslims in Denmark. History repeating itself.

    Interestingly, I had just forwarded centuri0n's recent post about the Danish cartoons (2.10.2006 post titled 'the prophet Hugh Hewitt') to my parents. My dad wondered why the particiants kept refering to the problem as a culture war "rather than the obvious spiritual war that
    it is and the spirit that is behind it. The tactics and strategies used by our adversaries is (from a worldly point of view) intelligent and effective. This
    is more than just clever men; it's inspired demonic influence. Hitler's propaganda minister, Gobells, made the famous remark once that if you wanted to sell a
    lie just say it loud enough and long enough and people will believe it. Spiritual battles must be won by spiritual means and that is where the church comes into play, but so far it doesn't seem to be much involved."
    As my husband and I were discussing all this last night, I was thinking how this fits into a larger picture - of our civilization at this time. It's hard to see it when you're living in it at the time. But I think articles like this are critical to share with others so they can wise up to the misinformation that the media are giving. And I consider lack of information to be 'misinformation' here.
