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.

Galatians 2 something.
It is a very busy week, and I am training myself to post only when I really do have the time. But here is a quick audio snap of what I taught on this Sunday. There it is in all its unpolished ignobility. Comments welcome, and sorry I don't have much time this week for commenting myself.

    I like the "I am training myself" bit.
    :-)

    I am just happy someone listened to it. ;-)

    Daniel,you said in a comment over at Rose's blog:

    "I am not aligned with any theological system, having not grown up in a church, nor been mentored into some system of theology - rather my theology rises out of a simple hermeneutic - I read the bible, and because I believe God wrote it to be understood by men, I believe it to be entirely comprehensible, and that being an inspired work it is consistent with itself, that is, what it says in the small picture never contradicts what it says in the big picture. It is the manual by which we learn about God, for the purpose of knowing God."

    I just hafta say a hearty AMEN! Again, you've said exactly what I think and would say if I could say it as well as you! ;-)

    All I know is that for years I believed in a man-centered theology. Two years ago God revealed Himself to me and my 'made-up' theology about God collided with His sovereignty, and He completely changed my core beliefs. I don't particularly like the labels, nor do I claim any for myself. I've never even read anything by John Calvin!

    The Scriptures speak for themselves, and I try to interpret the less clear passages with those that are crystal, and let the preponderance of Scripture shape my thoughts.

    Oh well, sorry - this isn't exactly in line with your post, but I just had to say this!

    I'm a new reader here and just had to ask about the previous comment on Calvin. Is there a problem with reading his writings?

     
  • At 8:53 AM, March 14, 2007, Blogger Gayla said…

    Heaven's no! There's not a thing wrong with reading his writings, and at some point I'll probably get around to reading some.

    My point is about the labels. I am not a 'Calvinist.' Because I embrace more reformed theology, though, some would automatically label me that - and I've not even read him! I was agreeing with Daniel, in that I believe the Bible was written that man could comprehend it, and the Scriptures themselves have determined my theology.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Why did it stop at 10:24 into the message?

    I didn't stop it there...? Hmmm - try again.

    Gayla,
    Thank you for the clarification on the Calvin comment. I was thinking about labels and wondering if we aren't having to use them more often to clarify what we mean by Christian (ie Catholic, Mormon, Calvinist). In some conversations I've had I realize people use terms and labels without knowing what they mean or using them with a different meaning than I understood. Perhaps I should have left this comment on your blog, I may head on over your way. Thanks again for clarifying.
