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.

In Christ...
Now with all the audio finesse of a wounded bullhorn!Continuing my study on Galatians, I did a bit of a detour on Galatians 1:22 when the discussion turned to being in Christ.

Let's see now, the highlights: I lost both my voice and my place a couple of times, and come across as a bumbling stooge for some of it, praise the Lord for a patient congregation. I make some mistakes, but I cast myself upon your collective patience.

If you are inclined to listen. the link (in WMA format) is:


The sound quality is just miserable - I had to turn the software volume down to less than half, then the hardware volumne up, but there it is. We don't get into the discussion about being in Christ till I am about half way through. I hope this is mostly review.

    Perhaps your church should invest in new recording equipment. ;)

    Bryan - I haven't heard the original, typically the tapes are excellent, but I have yet to hear a digital recording prior to someone compressing it. I suspect that if one used a better compression algorythm and settings it would sound much better.

    The sound is not great but tolerable. The message--excellent!

    I would love to hear you every Sunday. How would you like to plant a church? Then I could make Canadian jokes to your face. We are currently driving to the next town to attend church. I don't like that, but we live in a Lutheran/Catholic/Arminian Purgatory.

    David - Lutheran/Catholic/Arminian Purgatory? You must live in N.D.

    Yep. We're an independent lot, and that does not mesh with Reformed theology. If I was willing to drive 70+ miles, I could probably find a Reformed or Presbyterian church of some kind. As it is we have settled for an EFC Church and are blessed to have a pastor who is a skilled expositor and mostly Reformed. But it's not in our own community, and I don't really think that's right.

    David, my presumption is that the Lord has you there for a purpose, and that whatever it is you are either fulfilling it right now or being prepped for what's to come. ;-)

    What? God has a plan? Why hasn't anyone told me about this? No one tells me anything!

    Thanks, Daniel, I feel better now.
