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.

When does subtraction turn into addition?
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington, the plaintiffs demand that the words "so help me God" not be added to the end of the president's oath of office. - an article on cnn.com

While the tireless pursuit of those who hate/deny God is no grand surprise, what is surprising is how these people actually take themselves seriously. Added? In order to add these words to the end of the oath, they would have to not be part of the oath. What they want to do is subtract these words from the oath in order to satisfy their own atheistic agenda.

Shame on them for their open and unashamed bigotry, and pity them, for they seem to not understand the difference between adding and subtracting...

    Hi Daniel,

    At least they finally understand what Christians go through every day.

    ""Plaintiffs are placed in the untenable position of having to choose between not watching the presidential inauguration or being forced to countenance endorsements of purely religious notions that they expressly deny," according to the lawsuit."

    Only, it happens to us no matter if we are watching the inauguration or seeing billboards on the highway.

    And it's funny to think that hearing the words "so help me God" would force someone to appreciate and support the work of the Kingdom. If only it were that easy.

    Happy New Year.

    In Christ,
    Ten Cent

    What's always puzzled me about this, and other measures like it, is that these people actually have the time to devote to such things. I truly don't have the time in my life to file suits in court to have words and phrases added or subtracted from oaths, pledges, books or anything else.

    It's so ridiculously silly. I just want to say, "Get a life!"
