Long ago, when I published several full-sized newspapers, called the SCANNER and THE BEACON, I came under attack because a local church that I did not even go to objected and said I had no right to print any such thing without their approval. They claimed they had that right because they were the Church and I had to submit EVERYTHING I WROTE to their unregenerate viewpoints and also their utter hatred for real prophecy and the real truth of salvation. One member of that Church told me to not to speak to ANYONE about my encounter with Christ, the REVELATION of Christ because people would think I was crazy. I refused, of course. I am not a part of this apostate unbelieving and in total rebellion so-called Christian Church. I am not a religious person, never was and never will be. I came to Christ outside the camp. Everyone must come to Christ OUTSIDE the camp and I have remained OUTSIDE THE CAMP.
Now then, I believe totally that when someone writes in and tells me to REMOVE Doofuss from our blog, website and everywhere else, and sites Scripture that really does not apply at all to back up their claims that Doofuss really was under attack. Maybe you think that word is too strong. But is it really? They are attacking THE CONCEPT and asking for removal. They attacked with Scripture, claiming that was their authority for me to remove Doofuss. That was the bottom line of those comments, made in sincerity no doubt. It is one thing to voice an opinion, but quite another to use Scripture to REPROVE SOMETHING THAT DOES NOT EVEN APPLY. I notice that other Scripture that counters what was suggested was not included. I suppose that means I cannot publish my novel DANNY DOOGLE AND THE LORD’S OF MARS, either because it is a fiction satire novel. People need to really study out their Scripture. for it is full of sarcastic remarks and also humor. I have run into this before when people simply do not like the approach taken to make a point.
I fail to see at all how a 7 or 8 minute bit of humor and serious news could get people to claim it should never be seen because it is not SERIOUS, NOT GRAVE, NOT SINCERE. and that it corrupts the Word of God. The Scripture used to justify all of that was in fact directed at our ministry because I am Doofuss Dingle. Later it was said that rebuke should be taken and I need to examine myself:
“The opinions of Farris & Jerome did NOT say that your work, your truth, your seriousness, your ministry, etc. was not noticed & appreciated! So your defense re: your years of seriousness & giving out the truth was not necessary after these two comments. Comments & opinions are all they are, not attacks.”
(Actually they did say that, because Doofuss is a small part of our ministry here. One thing to comment quite another to cite Scripture to rebuke and reprove, and quite another yet to say the rebuke was needed and should be received. All over these 7-8 minute clips posted on MY WEBSITE, MY BLOG, and MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL at MY EXPENSE AND FOR EVERYONE ELSE’S EDIFICATION AND INSTRUCTION as to what is going on in this world of darkness. I fully realize that some people have no sense of humor at all, and cannot laugh at themselves or the world at large. I have run into that on many radio shows from Art Bell to hundreds of others. I was totally condemned when I went on the Art Bell show. “No real Christian could ever go on that show, don’t you now he is a Mason?” On and on it went. Seems to me Paul went up to Mars Hill to engage the New Agers of his day. I suppose that was all wrong too? Perhaps Doofus IS GOING to MARS HILL? Anyone ever thought of that?)
You have displayed this defensive behavior before in the past when someone didn’t seem to agree w/ you…something to think about. And if you never get attacked, although you were not attacked by Farris or Jerome, then that would indeed be a problem. Each one of us has others who do not agree w/ us, that’s just the way life is.
(I have never ever asked ANYONE to agree with me, quite the opposite as a matter of fact. I have told people since we began not to believe or agree with anything we post or say, but to check it out against the Scripture. – you take my bluntness to mean anger or defense. I don’t have to defend myself or Doofuss to anyone. I simply do not agree that these short clips have anything to do with the Scripture quoted to rebuke or reprove the ministry or Doofuss Dingle. Many people now act like they are Elders rebuking anything they simply do not understand or do not agree with when they are not Elders at all.)
Remember, everybody is at different places in Christ & at different places in their lives of recovery & understanding & that includes you, Stewart… (Never said otherwise).
On and on it appears to go, and where it stops nobody knows. And this:
“You ask people to comment. they comment, they commented. They did not condemn, they did not use foul language. they did not curse. They just simply thought this was not the correct way, in their opinion to go about this. On their parts there was not false doctrine, false teaching, confusion, envy, rage, malicious behavior, false witness. One could even say, not even any fervor. In fact, i would attest, that the contempt came from those who were quick to conclude. Attack , attack.
(Yes they did condemn it with Scripture. The Scripture used tells me that Doofuss is corrupted, not the truth at all. That I, who puts Doofuss up are way out of line Spiritually and need to be reproved for doing it. Show me where I have not used the truth? Show me where Doofuss has corrupted the Scripture? Is it that you do not like his rolling eyes? His smile? His obviously foolish look? It was clearly stated by that Scripture that Doofuss was to be removed because it was not Biblical and had no place in this ministry, and therefore was condemned. It was not an opinion, it was a reproof and a rebuke, just as the comment below is also a rebuke to all who did not agree with that Scripture:
So i would ask, where is the patience? Where is the temperance?
Titus 2:2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.”
Obviously the point has been totally missed as to why DOOFUSS is up there in the first place. As I said, comments are welcome,which is why I approve them and post them, no matter what they say – but that was more than comment. That was more than opinion, it was the use of Scripture to tell me to REMOVE DOOFUSS ALTOGETHER because God says so right here in the Bible. I was corrupting the Bible and the Truth through Doofuss. I guess I am just in the flesh these days, with no patience, no charity, and cannot laugh because I am to be totally sober and grave at all times. Never going to happen. If that attitude of JOY IN THE LORD offends, then it is best to leave and not be offended. That reminds me of all of these poor folks under the YOKE OF THE LAW, who dare not violate ANY CONCEPT OF THE LAW. They never smile, they never laugh, they are so somber and so serious. The YOKE THEY CARRY has destroyed their lives. Is not that why Jesus said come to me, all you who are heavy burdened? For what, for why? To REMOVE THE YOKE, to bring LIFE AND JOY, AND LAUGHTER. When I met the Lord I felt a great burden lift off of me. It is all real, it is all true. Last time I checked it out, Jesus Christ gives the regenerated one TOTAL AND COMPLETE FREEDOM. I am not to have JOY? I am not to poke fun at the world? I am not to laugh and use satire like Doofuss Dingle to point out the utter foolishness of fallen mankind? Have I no right to post Doofuss Dingle comments because some say or think they violate Scripture? Heaven forbid!!
I hold no grudge against anyone – I am not angry, I simply totally disagree and think this is a wrong use Scripture. I am pointing out this wrong us of Scripture. Here is the post that I responded to and the caps used to make their point that that Doofuss is totally wrong. Doofuss should not be there, Doofuss needs to go, all over 7-8 minute clips that go out into the world.
“I agree with you Farris.
“2 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, GRAVE, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience…7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, GRAVITY, SINCERITY…” (Titus 2)
“For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and GODLY SINCERITY, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.” (2 Cor. 1:12)
“…let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor FOOLISH TALKING, NOR JESTING, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.” (Eph. 5:4)
When the next major prophetic event happens, such as the Isaiah 17 war, a hugely significant event as that will be with much death and destruction in both Israel and surrounding countries, I don’t see the Spirit of Truth reaching his people in a powerful manner thru a Doofuss Dingle cartoon character. I’ve never thought that speaking truth was about getting ‘results’ or entertaining people…there’s plenty of that out in the world as it is. Looks like all the virgins have begun to sleep…until the midnight cry comes that is.
“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.” (1 Pet. 4:7)
You know, it is as though we do not have other areas of outreach whatsoever, that Doofuss is all there is. Got news for you. We may be small, but we have had a great outreach. We may have a very tiny platform, but the Lord has, time and again, used His Power to bring our Salvation Gospel to people in a supernatural way. Why would He do that if we are so insincere, corrupted or just “entertaining” people?
Evidently not only is it wrong to post Doofuss Dingle, there is no Spirit of Truth in anything he says, even though it is filled with the real SPIRIT OF TRUTH just said in a different manner. One cannot laugh, one cannot Jest, one cannot use foolish talk EVER. Lastly, I have been told not to deal with the so-called Church anymore, but rather to witness to those on the highways and by-ways, those that are to be bidden to come to the wedding. The Church as it is called is a LOST CHURCH. They have heard the Gospel all to often, and rejected it. Not my problem. I leave them behind. I am going to Mars Hill, WITH DOOFUSS DINGLE!! If it makes even one person think, one person begin to question, one person to begin to seek out the real truth, then it has accomplished ON MARS HILL that which it was to accomplish.
