I Affirm This
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.

    I like this guy! Very coherent and real in his speaking, with passion.

    This shows that language is used to control the conversation. You control how things are phrased, you control the answer you will get. We spent some time discussing that in one of my philosophy classes ;)

    To be serious though, in changing the question he totally moved it away from what such a person would be asking. Such a person would (if they paid attention at all in an intro philosophy class) be concerned that God allowed the world to fall into evil in the first place. The speaker (even though he suggests the opposite at one point in the video) takes the question away from being about God, to making it about people and their interaction with God. In other words his question and answer is about evil after the fall, while the person would/should be asking about why God created people with the ability to fall.

    Not at all saying there isn't answers to that, but he's not giving them. He's made it sound like he's rephrased the question to give a Christian answer, but he's not only rephrased it but changed it to another question (Still an important one).
