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.

Prayer Meeting Yesterday
Our pastor has been on holidays these past couple of weeks, which is why I was allowed to preach these past two Sundays. The other two deacons were each to lead one prayer meeting, but as it turns out, the deacon who was going to look after yesterday's prayer meeting had some other engagement, and so I was given the opportunity to lead the meeting. Praise the Lord for that.

One of the things we do at our prayer meetings is we pray for a specific country - each week we pray for a different country. Typically our former pastor (he is retired now, but still an active member in our congregation) selects a country from a book called
Operation World by Patrick Johnstone. Our former pastor however is likewise out of town - visiting family - so in keeping with our 'tradition' I quickly sought out the website for this ministry.

While the site does distinguish somewhat between Catholicism, evangelical Christianity it does so in a way that suggests all these are legitimate expressions of Christianity - which is my only beef. The site -is- however, a marvelous resource when it comes to praying for other countries.

The country we prayed for (August 17th) was Morocco. In a country with a population of nearly 30 million people, it is mind boggling to note that there were only about 1600 evangelical Christians (representing 11 denominations) to be found in the whole country. The site gave wonderful advice on how to pray - and I thought it was worth mentioning it in my blog.
