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.

My iPhone Review
OK, seriously. It's a great phone.

The sound is the best I have ever heard for a cell, and the interface is quite intuitive. Let's face it, when it comes to "being pretty" the crew at apple Apple know their stuff.

So as a phone, I give it a big thumbs up.

But no one buys an iPhone just because it is a great handset. We buy it because you can put everything from games to sermons (text, audio, or video) on it. Olive tree has a very slick bible program too - I have the entire ESV study bible (images, notes and all) happily installed, along with an NASB, a Greek NT, and several free books (such as Calvin's Institutes). But there are apps for all kinds of stuff. I never have to worry about where the nearest coffee shop is - zap! There it is with a map to show me how to get from where I am to where I am going. Do I want to surf the net? Read the feeds? Send/receive email? It's all there, and slick too. In fact I am posting this from an app that let's me post posts to my blogger account right now. I can even post screenshots from the phone directly:





It's not all roses however, being a computer, it can crash if an app doesn't know how to handle some unforseen mangle of UI commands, and that can cause a reboot. Which is kinda scary, but even then you just pick up where you left off usually. I expect as much. The OS is solid, but some apps, particularly some of the free ones, can come in ... Let's say ... under-tested.

As far as Internet usage goes, I am a power user. I connect all the time with frivolous abandon, and in two weeks I am still under a gigabyte of data. My plan gives six gigs a month, so I think I am safe for a while at least.

Anyway, I gotta get to work. Sometimes I turn on GPS tracker so the kids can watch my ride in realtime on a google map over breakfast (looks like dad is on the bridge now), but the novelty of that has already worn thin.

Bottom line? If you love toys that go beep, this is the ultimate toy.
