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.

Thursday Thoughts
One of the greatest joys I know is watching the sun come up.

Update: I preached on "why we obey" last Sunday, if anyone is interested. Link here.

    That was a great sermon. I really enjoyed it.

    "fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Heb. 12:2

    It was sort of a follow up to the previous weeks sermon. Without a pastor we have been doing a lot of topical stuff, but I want to start some straight forward exposition.

    Daniel, I enjoyed that message again.

    I could hear you slowing yourself down once in a while. I find it interesting to hear certain influences reflected in your inflections; a little John Piper perhaps? A slight twinge of Red Green, and the occassional hint of a MacArthurian greek expose.

    Is it possible to get a higher quality recording?

    Jim - I don't ever watch Red Green, but I have listened to both MacArthur and Piper, though in the last couple of years I have not has as much time to listen to extraneous sermons as I used to.

    As to whether or not it is possible to get higher quality recordings, I suspect the answer is both yes and no. Presently I think there are two recordings going on at the same time - one is the regular cassette tape recording, the other is an electronic recorder. The tape quality is very good, but the electronic recorder compresses as it records so you lose a lot of quality in the process of recording a message.

    The best way to do it is to take the tape and compress it after the fact, you can get a fairly clean compression that way, but it is a lot more work. Alternately, we could get a better digital recorder - but that might cost ~real~ money... I don't think the fellows who do this at the church are overly concerned about quality for the time being, and most of the digitizing is being done for free using equipment that belongs to one of the members.

    That means that unless you sign out a tape, the digitized recording is all that is left - and that is about as good a quality as they are willing to put together for now.

    I didn't think you watched Red Green, perhaps it's just that good old Canadian accent that I hear in ya. ;)

    Most preachers I listen to are from south of the border so hearing another countryman speak almost sounds strange at times.
