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.

A Word of Advice
By now you have heard that Steve Curtis Chapman's adopted five year old daughter was killed tragically in an accident when her older brother, not knowing she was behind the vehicle, drove over her.

Here is my advice, and I give it to those of you who have heard of this tragedy, who have felt an empathetic sickness in your stomach because of how horrible it is to imagine such an awful thing, -- and have pushed it out of mind.

Good gravy, don't suppress that sort of ache, God gave you something of himself when he made you able to feel - don't swallow that down just because it isn't pleasant. But get alone somewhere and weep for this family, weep and pray. Mourn with those who mourn, if you are able.

    I know exactly what you're talking about -- the ache in the stomach. I wept about this for some time when I found out, and my prayers are with them. I have teenage sons and I am sure that their son needs comforting in the worst way. And his family seems just that close knit. I'm sure they are leaning on God and each other heavily right now.
