The Nashville Statement
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.

Blog Spot Strumpets

Phil Johnson's blog (pyromaniac) over at phillipjohnson.blogspot.com is a fun read. I don't spend a lot of time there, but I like to flip through his blog spotting section when he posts them. This is just a collection of links to people who either mention Phil or something Phil said or wrote in their own blogs. I like the eclectic nature of those lists, it makes for fun surfing.

I find the material at the other end of some of these links is sometimes well thought out and articulate, and whether the author agrees with Phil or not at least he or she is able to express himself or herself with a civil dignity that befits the medium. On the other hand there are many blog spot whores - or, as I prefer to say, blog spot "strumpets." This variety of "blog spots" amuse me because I am the sort of person that finds shameless pandering amusing. They are sort of a cross between band groupies and little children who cry out "look at me, look at me" everytime they go off the diving board. This is no reflection upon the individuals - except for the distinction between being blog spotted because you have something to say, and being blog spotted because you want to be adored for your dive.

One of the fun things about the blog spotting is the graphics. Phil has a good sense of color balance - I am no expert - but I like that he generally sticks to the primary colors.

I say this because when I saw the above image - the king snake ("Lampropeltis Pyromelena" - and maybe it was the pyro thing - maybe just the colors - I am not sure) I immediately thought of Phil's images, and with tongue firmly in cheek I determined to make a quick homage post today just for fun.

I like the fire truck thing too, but I had to look for that.
