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.
My complete profile...
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.

Better late than never...
I wasn't going to get into the seven sevens thing - but Jibbs did, and pretty much everything Jibbs does is worth imitating:

    Daniel, now I know how much you truly do care. Thankyou,Thankyou, Thankyou for not meme tagging me!!!

    Paul Lamely meme'd me a couple days ago and I'm hoping he'll forget about it.

    I might do a PURGATORIO on christian memes.

    Daniel, I don't think I can do it. I have only just joined my cousin's blog, and Loki has already done it. We have so much in common that it would be redundant.

    Marc, you should do it using pictures. That would be cool.

    Thanks for doing the meme Daniel - some of these guys are so uptight they NEVER do one of these things. (Granted, most memes are painfully lame & useless, some of them give us pause for thought about where we are, where we'd like to be in a few years - Frank's favorite "where I am right now" sorta thing, lol)

    I nearly fell off my chair when I tagged cent and Loki on this one, and they both actually DID it.

    Ok, I did the list Daniel. I have now become "transparent" for all the world to see.

    David, good idea for Marc!

    ok..once again i ask the question. what is a meme? Phil Johnson said it was sorta like the wave...keep a subject going. Is it connected to the 7777777's? I am so internet illiterate sometimes. In fact, I am trying to figure out how to do a blog and am tearing out my hair in the process...not that I have anything to say, but that people might have at least some idea of who I am.

    word ver: pqpkgd Minding your p's and q's as a preacher's kid.

    I Have the same seven for my Wife.
    We are a like
    Thank You Daniel

    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one of the most underrated movies of all time. I'm right there with ya brother! The Emperors New Groove is really funny, Bruce Lee rocks! (did you know he's still alive and working as an Elvis impersonator in Hong Kong?) Treasure Planet looks really good on DVD and The Incredibles tell us all what families can do...

    Interesting information about Daniel. Where is Tim Burton? (I loved your explanation about your avatar).
