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.

Template Grief...

This template is still not behaving. I apologize for the ugliness, but I may not get around to fixing it for a couple of days. Bear with me.

    Oh, Daniel,
    It really looks cool. I am sorry it isn't working for you.

    Is petunia really your name?

    It is my own fault. I wanted to go full bore css, and it looks like I am going to have to go with an expanding table format instead.


    Petunia - the template is document that blogger uses to determine how my blog "looks and feels" - CSS is an acronym for Cascading Style Sheets - but practically speaking, the "styles" are really just user defined extended hyper-text markup language (XHTML) which dictate how the various elements in your blog are going to look. The color of the text, the background color, the images, the placement and size of the various blog items (how big is the header, the left side, right side, and middle content, etc.) - all these things are determined using the template document - which those of us who fiddle with them refer to as simply the "template."

    Many readers are bloggers themselves - and as such some of these have fiddled with, or replaced entirely the default (and rather plain) blogger templates.

    It is not necessary knowledge - but those of us who have had to fight with this document trying to get our blog to look a certain way - well, they can appreciate the frustration.

    It is my own ego that demands an entirely "table free" layout. It just doesn't seem to work the same in different browsers. Most of us use IE 5 or 6 (about 60% of us) then a bunch use Firefox, and safari, and netscape etc. Trying to get the page to look the same on each "platform" is tough, as some of the browsers render the xhtml styles inconsistently.

    I think I am just going to swallow my pride and do a table layout - at least it will work without hassle. ;-)
