DOOFUSS DINGLE UNDER ATTACK

February 9, 2013

I have received two posts attacking Doofuss Dingles approach to the world as stupid and not at all Biblical. Here they are, and below my reply. I would really like your opinions concerning this post. I seems to me that what is going on in the world has people in a state of fear – and cannot stand any sort of light hearted look at a lost and dying world.

Stewart, I have followed you and Larry Taylor now for 2 years. You have provided info many times that I hadn’t heard elsewhere. But your new persona, Doofus, is extremely silly?! It makes your transmissions, especially referring to the rest of us as “boys and girls,” far less serious, than the actual content! Please continue to share the info you collect, but do so as an adult…okay??? Doofus is a stupid form of communicating your ideas with us!!!

And then this:

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)

I guess I don’t measure up. I never will either. Here is my reply:

I have a problem here – we do very serous work on both Global Report and Borderlands, and by the way, we have posted very serious stuff on this blog as well, as well as multitudes of video documentaries, many articles, books etc. Then we I post some humor, I get jumped on. By the way when you are getting information for free, you should not complain, you hit the delete button and don’t come back. It is that simple.

Are you saying I am not sincere?. I have told you people the truth with GRAVITY and SINCERELY for so many years I cannot remember. I hear people pick everything apart with their so-called “godly wisdom”. You people act like I have never warned you in a most serious way – yes millions of people are going to die, and the vast majority without Christ. But if you read carefully, the Lord does want all people to come to repentance, but is not going to shed many tears for those who refuse. In His eyes, they are His enemies, and refused His Son. Doofuss brings serious issues to light in a way that most people seem to appreciate.

MULTITUDES, yes, MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS are going to stand before the Lord utterly rejected. But they stand there OF THEIR OWN ACCORD, OF THEIR OWN FREE WILL. They had a choice, they rejected it. They think the STRAIT GATE and NARROW WAY are some sort of heretical teaching. They hate the concept. So be it, I can’t do anything about it. Jesus said what He said. When Jesus actually and truly comes into the heart, the inner heart, it brings GREAT JOY, LAUGHTER, AND THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT ON THIS EARTH AND NEVER WILL BE.

By the way, another young lady met Jesus Christ face to face and her testimony is very authentic in every way, but I know many will attempt to pick it all apart – and in fact it has already happened to her just as it did to me. I interviewed her just today and we had a a most serious but jovial discussion about her encounter and revelation of Divine Agape. I’m putting it on Borderlands for all to hear. I am posting it on our web site and the blog FOR FREE. We will refund the money for the week to those who subscribe to Borderlands.

We spoke of her search for the truth from a little girl, and how the Lord told her, while she was in Church, that she should leave that Church and she was told to find Stewart Best because he knew the way and knew the truth. So she did. This was total confirmation for me and this ministry. It is authentic. It is real. It is like the man who died and was told by Jesus to return, that Dark/Light was the truth, and He needed to finish up the work and get saved.  Or the guy up in Alaska who was told by the Lord to stop at a gas station/restaurant, which he did not do. Down the road a bit, the Lord told Him to turn around and go back. He did, but has no idea why. So he goes into the diner there and begins to speak to a man next to him. After a few words, he is handed OUR CATALOG, and was told he needed to see it. He knew then why the Lord had told him to stop.  I suppose then that DARK/LIGHT is not GRAVE ENOUGH, or has enough GRAVITY, or is not SINCERE. We are hated by almost everyone.

If people do not like my method of ministry, they can leave it. When I look around at this dying world, I have two choices – laugh at it or cry. I do both, Often. But the Lord has never removed my sense of humor, in fact He has enriched it greatly – and He has never told me in any way, shape or manner not to reach out to some  people in this manner. You act like Doofuss is all I do – I have already touched many people with Doofuss, and I will continue to do so until He tells me not to.  Are you saying that Doofuss is not speaking about very serious issues here? That he has not issued many serious warnings? That those warnings are not GRAVE ENOUGH?

I get accused even in interviews of being to jovial when speaking of serious issues. I get “I’m serious” from others. Well, so am I –  I met the Lord, I have His joy, I have His Spirit, and I cannot wait for His return and leave this world and all of those in rebellion behind. They asked for what they got. They have mocked me for years, are in total rebellion and refuse Him who speaks from Heaven. I can only point people in the right direction. I can’t do anything else. If Doofus reaches even ONE PERSON, AND MAKES THAT PERSON THINK, and that person searches out the Lord, then all the debate means nothing, does it!

And the use of words in CAPS like GRAVE, GRAVITY, SINCERELY seem to indicate that I have not done that all of these multitudes of years. Show me where Doofuss has not issued the same GRAVE WARNINGS but done so with a bit of humor – you folks take life way to seriously, so seriously that it becomes a block, a  stumbling stone in your way. Everything is picked apart, word by word. It becomes a Satanic diversion – the Gospel is SIMPLE. Difficult but very simple.  You think I don’t know what it is to have everything destroyed? Everything brought down to the pit? To know your a hell-bound sinner? To know  your dead? To know you are going to hell? there is nothing you can do about it? To know the heavy hand of the Lord ripping your gut out? Well, I did! And though it all, I kept my sense of humor, and was able to laugh at myself and the world. Otherwise I would have downed in my own self-pity. Poor little me. Poor little ol Stewee. All weep and cry for little me.  Doofuss is to give people serious stuff with a laugh.

Jesus was murdered OUTSIDE THE CAMP. His truly saved people all came to Him OUTSIDE THE CAMP.  They left Christianity and the joke that it has become. They departed this world, they searched Him out with all GRAVITY and SINCERITY. I have not met one truly saved individual that does not have a good laugh and a good sense of humor. Now the fakes out there, if you will look it up in the Bible, are SERIOUSLY DRIVEN. The Lord DRIVES THEM.They are more than GRAVE and have no clue about what. They cannot laugh, they are just TOO SERIOUS.  Look it up for yourself. The FAKES KNOW NOT THE LOVE, THE JOY AND THE LAUGHTER OF BEING TAKEN OUT OF THIS DARK OVER SERIOUS WORLD.  I want no part of it. If I can’t laugh at it, then there is nothing left. AS DOOFUSS WOULD SAY, LIGHTEN UP, CHILL OUT, DRINK SOME DENIAL TEA, YOU’LL FEEL BETTER.

    I agree with your outlook! This heavy info that we carry with us and are mocked for trying to share requires a little levity once in a while. It’s a crushing weight on your heart to know the truth and find so few interested, and yet such a joy to know that our Lord and Savior chose us for a time such as this. Keep it up brother! MARANATHA!

    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.

    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.

    Remember, everybody is at different places in Christ & at different places in their lives of recovery & understanding & that includes you, Stewart…

    Stewart if you stand on a wall and scream bloody murder that the flood’s coming – get to high ground 2 things will happen: 1 Jesus will love you for doing His will; 2 some poor soul will die on the spot, unredeemed, because instead of seeking high ground (and the safety of Father’s loving care) he stood there screaming at you that your sentences were grammatically incorrect. Do what Jesus did – help those who will hear with the giftings and talents God has given you to do so – we’re praying hard for you brother!

    I really had paid very little attention to any of this. I have watched all of the videos, and have kept what i thought to myself. Which i have learned is usually the best policy. I had not been reading most of the commenting. Until i saw the above headline, then retraced the steps. What i have to say is —————————
    seriously,?
    under attack?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/.
    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.

    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.

    The first thought, the first response. Is to sound off you are under attack. come on.!! sober, grave, temperate, sound and patient????

    This is not the way the body of Christ is supposed to operate. The scriptures that Jerome posted were sound. I am utterly shocked that this is even an issue. I am utterly astounded that those are considered attacks considering what is coming soon upon the body of Christ. Using scripture to make a point is not an attack. It is at most a responsible reprovement, point of disagreement. that’s all. Sure a misled soul can use scripture to attack, but that is not what happened here. I am ashamed that it is being presented in such way.

    I haven’t blogged for quite awhile for this particular reason. When someone points out sound doctrine, it gets reversed on them. Up is down, down is up.

    For a moment i will switch into a different gear here. I believe this whole situation and other are a result of what ii would call here the watchmen complex. I have seen it time after time all over the interent, and of old with the tele-watchmen, and evangelists, preachers. i have seen it in churches, study groups, and the Lord dealt with me in my own being. I have witnessed the so called watchmen, claim themselves under attack just because someone dares to disagree. quick to pounce, to defend their person, their ministry.

    For example . When a prophesy does not come true, instead of calling into question the prophet, they make excuse. Like,— doesn’t God change his mind? Can’t he repent of what he may do? Watchmen love to point to Jonah. I would reply Our Lord, is no God of confusion, and is so far ahead of any move that may come. He knows the beginning from the ending. Do we really believe he has already seen, He already knows? Or are those just words, sayings of the –owlam– antiquity, of old, of all time, what is eternal. Besides this, if they would correctly divide the word, they would see, that the Lord told Jonah, if they repent, He would stay His judgment. They repented ,what happened? Did he change his mind on a whim, or did he forewarn, as Amos the shepherd proclaims of how the Lord works.

    Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

    But when a prophet says in the name of the Lord, such and such shall come to pass, and it does not. What watchmen has the right to tell me, or any, i should still hear such a prophet of babel? What authority do they really have? Do they not sow the fields of the Lord with confusion?

    Authority does not come by belittlement, or lording over, by having more fleshly knowledge, more insight into events. Authority comes from the Spirit, to the obedient in Christ, according to the will of God. It is not handed out to be devoured by any who preach for the sake of preaching, or prophesy, proclaim, warn, or whatever they may deem their ministry to be, of their own volition. Flesh is flesh, Spirit is Spirit. The watchmen are dealing in flesh. Come out of the woods and you will see this plainly.

    An exhortation. If any watchmen see this. Show me the office of watchmen in the new testament. It isn’t there. Just like we are all called to be priests and servants of Jesus, we ARE ALL COMMANDED TO WATCH. And we are all commanded to be taught by the Lord Himself. So why would we need a watchman, if we have the Spirit?
    Are not the watchmen greedy dogs as scripture says? What , the watchmen aren’t greedy for gain in Babylon? greed is not just appointed to wealth. though some are obviously greedy, and hoard over their so called intelligencia. But it is of a truth, they are greedy and covetous of prestige, attention, becoming renown, known authors, known orators, famous. Do not the watchmen have clubs and clicks? Tell me i speak amiss. Please. Because the last days only comes once. And we should know who are the Lord’s anointed and no, should we not.

    Because these false walls of stubble, who call to watch events, and a event. Take the eyes away from the founded purpose to watch, which is to watch for their Master to come. The events being secondary, not primary. They have started to abuse their fellow servants. and they will so find themselves fulfilling in fear certain parables, they espoused to others.

    But those who seek truth. who are watchful unto Jesus coming to them, to translate them into His kingdom, to reside with Him in heavenly places
    those who watch in truth, watch for Jesus coming to them in Spirit and Truth, watch for Him as watchmen over their spirits, and sober to putting off their old man. Not seeking to escape persecution, but seeing at an honour to suffer for him. Also necessary to suffer with Him, and that the true fellowship is not with men, but is in the Father and in the Son. And that fellowship comes through suffering with Him. Until you are born in the image of Him. Which i here attest and witness that Stew has held fast to with a perfect witness.
    Acts 5:41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.
    2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

    those who would watch and not depend on watchmen
    keep you eyes on HIm ,til your eye be single, then you will know your on the right path.
    and learn in the Spirit of truth what this scripture means.
    Luke 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

    I realize the above to some may seem to be a separate issue, but i really do see this as a result of the watchmen complex. There are many religious spirits, and they disguise themselves in many forms. Authority is one of their favorites. Religious
    contention and discord IS THEIR GAME.

    back to the presumed attack.
    I would agree that the person Ferris maybe could have worded HIS OPINION, a little more differently. But go to you tube and see some of the posts. This was pretty cancer free.
    “But your new persona, Doofus, is extremely silly?! It makes your transmissions, especially referring to the rest of us as “boys and girls,” far less serious, than the actual content! Please continue to share the info you collect, but do so as an adult…okay??? Doofus is a stupid form of communicating your ideas with us!”

    The only part i could really see as a hair out of line on any blog, considering the nature of this faceless medium. Hence MEDIUM. Is the part that could be construed as him —- telling you what to do—-. “…….but do so as an adult” Other wise it is just opinion.

    Does not this scripture apply to this situation, or am i attacking, now?.
    2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

    reprove, rebuke longsuffering. i know what the Lord has said to me. I know what he has shown me. To be slow to anger, and slow to wrath, slow to respond to what may appear as a verbal attack, slow to speak. This is a hard go for a german, indian, irish, scot and english mix. Yet , i conclude, all have similar struggles. And scripture affirms that we must all show such fruit. But, I also know how he has been breaking me. One area is in not being quick to judge. Believe you me, i was beyond very slow to weigh in on this. Very heistent, but very sure of these words. Notice, i have not weighed in on my opinion on Dufuss Dingle. I have remained neutral.

    i Would hope that all would hear this wisdom. If you think what i have said here is without wisdom. I will then attest to them, they need to reexamine. . A wrong accusation in the above post has been laid at the feet of Mr. Ferris, and Mr. Gerbasi, and they should both receive apologies from the involved body. This is so stated in a somber , prayerful spirit, that we can all come into the true fellowship of the Father, and the Son.

    And know this in the coming persecution will we be so quick to defend ourselves, or will we wait for the Spirit to give us what to say., today to many seem to be speaking from their skin, not the spirit. . The rich men are getting bored with the blood sports they have been permitted to practice. The time is soon approaching of the revisiting of the early church persecutions. Where it will not matter whether the skin is thick or thin, because of their hatred of Jesus Christ, they will skin it right off.

    Romans 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

There is a wrong spirit about this whole situation. And people really need to examine not just this, but themselves, their walk, how they react to each other, how they are so quick to act the role of pawn and calvary. In other words, a whole lot a smoke being blown. If you can’t see that, i fear for you all. and i would advise, it is high time to be slow to speak, way beyond time.

Why people have to constantly pick at each other is beyond my comprehension. Stewart, I have listened to you for many years now and see you as the guiding light ministry to the Lord. I pray for God to grant you even more wisdom to share with the lost and to bring as many people to Him as you possibly can.

    Satire has often been a way to people’s hearts and minds, even when serious remonstrance does not work. I do not mind you being funny, Stewart. I think I often have been a clown myself, even when my soul was sad.
    But I’ll tell you a secret: I cannot watch Doofus because he breaks my heart.

    This is a good time to thank you for your ministry. At first, many years ago, I thought it extreme in its narrowness of who can be saved. But now I understand this: many people have stood where you have stood, in that place of Death, to meet Jesus, and the group may be less narrow than you think. Many who you think are laughing, inside they know the Cross.

    You are doing a fantastic job. I’m amazed at the amount of truth you have brought to us over the years. I for one would have never found the narrow way were it not for your ministry. Please don’t be concerned with the attacks. People who preach the actual truth are never popular. I know I’m attacked constantly. Doofuss Dingle is light hearted, yet informative. We all need a laugh now and then. Keep up the good work. Thanks for all you do.

    I have read both of these comments, and frankly it saddens me to see Christians who attack each other with scripture that is twisted and taken out of context. I try to steer clear of those who do that. But in reading Ephesians 5:4 you must take in at least the verse before and the verse after to get the meaning. In this case a review of the chapter is in order. Paul is teaching us to live as children of the light. Paul cautions us to avoid the thinking and living as gentiles, as they are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of ignorance that is in in them due to the hardening of their hearts. ‘Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.’ Now for verse 3. Paul is warning against sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Then he tells us in verse 4. that we should not engage in obscenity, foolish talk, or coarse joking, but give thanksgiving. This does not say that we can’t have a light heart. Now 1st Peter also tells us that we are to offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Above all love each other, and ‘Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in it’s various forms. Thank you Stuart for your ministry, this has reached others I know, that wouldn’t ordinarily know what is going on around them. And you must be stirring an awakening, or the attacks wouldn’t come. God bless you and your ministry, Doofus Dingle is not only appropriate, but he is very helpful. Thanks again,
