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.

Forty Years.
I don't know who she is.Yesterday, November 15, 2006 was my birthday. I took the day off of work, spent time with my family, we put up the Christmas tree, and more or less had fun all day. In the evening, for the first time in years, my wife and I went out with another couple and neither of us had any of our children along (they have five kids, we have four). It was such a wonderful time. When we came home my wife and I put the kids to bed and talked for hours. We were so very thankful for all the wonderful work God has done in our lives. We ended the evening in prayer together, thanking and sincerely praising God for the beauty of his glory. I can't remember having such a nice time.

I didn't get this cake either. My oldest daughter made me a computer out of paper, which was hilarious - she also made me a birthday card that had lots of crosses on it and bibles, because she knows I love God and that I love reading the bible. It was quite touching on a variety of levels. My eldest made me a card too, but his was full of lightsabres (he is presently infatuated with lightsabres and anything and everything star wars). My youngest daughter, who is notoriously stubborn, and by virtue of her steely will stands to teach my wife and I daily our need for grace - she came and gave me the most heart felt happy birthday, it was all quite sweet.

All in all, it was a stellar birthday, especially the genuine thankfulness I could extend to the Lord for the wonderful family, and wonderful life He has given me through His Son.

I will pick up the series on Carnal Christianity shortly - probably not today though...
