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.

You Know You Are Tired When...
When my alarm woke this morning I was dreaming the most vivid dream about being in my own bed and just staying there. It was perfect. I was even dreaming about rolling over and fluffing the pillow. I was having a delightfully vain and philosophical discussion with myself about whether I ought to shave my head this summer and first shave the front so as to look like a balding man - so that I could perhaps stop in the middle and have a comb over for a couple of days... But no matter how my dream thought meandered, they came back to just how much I was enjoying being in bed sleeping, and not having to wake up.

Then the alarm rang.

I know, I know. In some congregations your holiness can be directly measured by whether or not "the Lord gets you up in the morning" and in particular the earlier, you rise, the holier you are. Old people seem to be much holier, for it seems God wakes the older saints much earlier - I mean to pray and all that - though he does wake the old non-saints much earlier too, presumably to cuss and make evil plans...

Anyway, I do hope to do the comb over this summer some time...

    Daniel, from the looks of your picture on your sidebar, a combover is a long way off for you!

    I've enjoyed reading your UE posts. You have a very gifted way with which you are able to explain the truth of the Word. You say what I would say if I could say it as well as you!

    Also, thanks for your nice comment on my blog about our family portrait. We're really proud of our gifted artist son!

    Gayla, your son is quite talented, and the way you love him is so obvious- and that is beautiful to me.

    I love the Lord, and I hope I am being faithful to His word. I wish I were more passionate, and that this same passion would find voice in whatever I testify of Him or His word.

    One day we will all reflect His glory perfectly, though now we do so poorly. Praise the Lord that we can take joy in Him together!

    I will be very disappointed in you don't post a picture of your comb-over. I may even break fellowship.

    David - I sooooo want to do the comb over! That would make a very fun avatar.

    Do the comb-over, get yourself an enormous black KJV and the cheapest blue suit you can find, and there's a church here in town that will give you a job pronto. You do know the words to "Dwelling in Beulah Land" and other Baptist favorites, don't you?

    Seriously, though, your wife must be an incredibly good sport.

    She would describe herself more as "tolerant" than a good sport. ;-)
