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.

The Queen of Sheba...
Have you ever thought about ramifications?

The Queen of Sheba - a queen no less - not only humbled herself to hear the wisdom of God spoken through Solomon - but crossed the known world to hear it.

In doing this she set a standard that every other person can be judged by.

Think that through.

She -has- -the- -right- to accuse everyone who doesn't do as much as she did to learn about truth - because she laid aside all advantage and responsibility and humbled herself so that she might seek the truth at any cost to her reputation, time, and duty. She crossed the known world seeking truth and wisdom, and her effort will be one measure at least by which she will be able to rise up in that last day and denounce anyone who given time and opportunity did not seek truth and wisdom.

We live in a time where many Christians can't be bothered to read more than a chapter or two a day in God's word - if they bother to read the bible at all. How sad it will be on that final day when they suddenly are able to perceive the immensity of their failure.

    Actually, just last night I considered the ramifications, as our family devotional (courtesty Charles Spurgeon) was on this very topic.

    Oh, and by the way, re: the fat guy in the speedo...


    ty, and have a nice day...
