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.

Weekend Creampuffs.
You have a good, consistent devotional time - at least during the week. Getting up for work, or going to bed early or whatever it is exactly - having a schedule that you cannot escape allows you to plan and keep your devotional times daily.

But it is the weekend that shows you how much of your devotion is habit, and how much is love. Do you find yourself skipping out on prayer and bible reading on Saturdays and especially on Sundays?

Good habits are good, don't get me wrong, but if this brief post tweaks something in you, pay attention to that. Perhaps the Lord is calling you to examine whether you do devotions or are actually devoted.

    Daniel, that is a very good and relevant question.

    I don't find myself skipping out on the weekends, but neither do I find myself using the extra time for increased reading and prayer.

    Please pray that God will increase my hunger and capacity for Him.

    Weekends are hard. I find myself sleeping in and then somehow forgetting to have devotions on the weekends. I appreciate your advice to pay attention to this possible lack of true desire to get to know God better.

    If I can isolate myself from people in the morning, I look forward to spending my Sabbaths with God since my habits are much poorer during the week which is often distracting and rushed.
