I Affirm This
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.

The Truth laid bear,
A lowly insect...

The Truth Laid Bear blogosphere "ecosystem" is being renovated. I have plummetted from a flappy bird, to a lowly insect. <insert sad smiley face here>

It is good to see the system get an overhaul - though I suspect no one is happy to see themselves move five or six rungs down the food chain - nevertheless the evolutionary steps will more accurately reflect one's standing in the blogosphere. The difference between a flappy bird and an insignificant microbe ought not to be a double saw-bucks worth of links.

So here I am once again - entomologically challenged as it were, but ready to make a buzz if given the chance.

    I agree Daniel, yes I hate de-evolving, but it was becomming unfair to those with a lot of links and hits to be grouped in the same category with blogs that did not have nearly as many.

    Now I just need a few thousand links and butta-bing butta-boom I am human!

    I'm back. Writing here, thinking that you would be more likely to read the responses on this current post than on an old one.

    Could I e-mail you directly? I just don't think this would be the right place to continue our conversation without further explanation on my part.

    Thank you,

    Sure thing Ephraim - dvandelaar at gmail.com

    I am not always the quickest on the draw when it comes to email though.

    Fair! Who care about fair? The whole TTLB thing is bogus! We should come up with a rating system for Christian blogs based on Sanctification. That would be fun...

    My fear is I'll make it up to rodent again and immediately be devolved into a flippery fish!
