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 didn't notice.
Michael Jackson Died. I was home sick and not checking the net. I must say, I was surprised, he was only fifty.

I expect there will be a few Christian blogs (and even up and coming Sunday Sermons) that will mention Michael's death as a springboard into discussing the judgment we will all face at our own passing.

Well, I am off to work.

    It is sad when someone dies this way. He will be mourned by his fans, and mocked by many others.

    What should a forgiven sinner and saint of Christ, a genuine Christian, say and do?

    I suppose I'd answer any question asked me about what I thought of Michael, or whether I liked him or not. And be as honest as possible, and yet keep away from speculating.

    Funny, just this past Wednesday I went on Youtube to check out his music videos. I wanted to see him sing and dance a bit. He was very talented the way he danced about. Not as good as Fred Astaire though, Fred was the best. I loved watching him.

    It grieves me to think of anyone dying without having God's mercy applied to their soul.

    I don't deserve God's mercy, that's for sure. I deserve to be judged by the Lord. Yet He found it in Himself, (and I'll never understand why), to save this filthy sinner whom He wanted to save. God willed to have mercy on me. God doesn't have mercy on all souls, and there's not one soul that ever lived who is worthy for God, but infact all souls are deserving of His righteous justice being apllied, which would mean, we having to give an account for our sins.

    It will be a horrible day when souls are judged by God, and sent away from the majestic presence of Jesus Christ the Lord of the universe.

    Have a blessed Lord's day in His mercy and love.
