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.

11 February 2007
Fifty nine days ago, on the 11th of February 2007, some guy named Ilker (the thinking blog) started the "five blogs that make me think" meme, and because recipients of the meme get to put a prestigious looking award on their site after being tagged, it seems to have really taken off.

I don't read Ilker's blog for two reasons, first, until I saw this "thinking blog award" I never knew there was a thinking blog, or some guy named Ilker behind it - and secondly, and perhaps most relevant now that I know there is a thinking blog and some guy named Ilker blogging there - I find that the material on his blog is a little too "racy."

I first noticed the "thinking blogger logo" award on Frank Turk's blog on April 4th. I couldn't quite make out what was pictured in the logo - a baby with a mark on its head or something - but Ilker describes the logo as a "thinking alien fetus" - and that probably says enough right there.

Now, it is not that I am not a fan of Internet viral marketing - I am, but I would hesitate to say that I am an indiscriminate supporter of it. Which is not to suggest that playing along with the meme is [1] supporting ilker's blog, or that playing along with the meme [2] anyone who plays along with this particular meme is being indiscriminate - good gravy no! I am not suggesting that.

All I am saying is that I am not going to continue that particular meme here. I am honored to have been considered for it by Gayla and JD (Even so), but I have something else in mind as my next post will show.
