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.

Taking a few days off.
The funeral for my grandmother is tomorrow, and I am home with my family for a few days, so I will probably not be blogging as much during that time - though I may pop in. So if it is quiet from my end, don't let that stop you from debating election or perhaps the limit of the atonement.

In fact, since, I won't be around, I might just add that only the elect will be saved, and that the elect didn't choose to follow God all by their lonesome,and God did not "look forward in time" to see what choice we make only to chronologically trump those who chose him, by electing them after the fact of their own choice, but before the fact chronologically. Only the ones God chose before hand will believe.

Also, Christ didn't die on the cross for everyone - he died for the elect and only for the elect - if your sins are not on the cross, Christ didn't die for you - and he wasn't sent for you either. Period.

Discuss. <giggle> - not that I imagine you people have much to say about election or the atonement...

    Yes Daniel, as Carla says, May the Lord bless you and your family with comfort and peace and may He give you many opportunities to speak His truth. Onward, my Brother!

    I am sorry about your Grand Mother. May the Lord comfort you.

    P.S. You sugar-coat the election thing too much, you softy.

    I am disappointed. Perhaps the double whammy of election and the limit of the atonement cancelled each other out - but it has been my experience that any whiff of either in a post draws out champios from either opinion who battle ad nauseum. I was fully expecting to see a thousand comments or more.
