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.

Not Bad, but Evil.
Don't call sin bad. I can get a bad haircut, but sin isn't bad, it's evil. Call the sin you do "evil" Let your conscience drink in that truth, and don't squirm out from under it. Sin is evil, and every time you sin, you bring more of it (evil) into the world.

You need to be saved from it, and not merely in it.

We all know that sin is evil, but somehow, when it comes to our sin, then sin is just a mistake, or a bad habit. We gotta stop playing games like that. Call sin evil, meditate on what evil really is, and allow the weight of your participation in it to affect your conscience. You will need a tender conscience if you ever hope to battle evil.

Don't look at the world and image it became evil without your help.

    That last sentence, "Don't look at the world and imagine it became evil without your help." is brilliant. I can't begin to count the times I've heard people blame society for their problems, as if they are a separate entity from society. If everyone could see this truth, it would be a good first step.

    Thanks for focusing my thoughts on this today.

    Jennifer, Welcome to the blog, and thanks for the comment. The problem with evil is we pretend it is just bad - that way when we do evil, we can still imagine we are good.
