One of Jessa Duggar’s controversial Facebook posts has been dredged back up, and some of Josh Duggar’s supporters might not like what it says.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Josh Duggar confessed to molesting five underage girls, some of whom were his own sisters. In a statement, Josh expressed concern that he would end up ruining his life if he continued down the “wrong road” that he was on. He didn’t express any similar concern for the lives of his victims.
The Duggar Family Facebook page is full of comments from 19 Kids and Counting fans who want Josh’s critics to turned a blind eye to what he did.
“Please let this go and let his family and God handle this,” one fan writes.
“ALL families go through things–some more difficult than others. Stop acting like you are experts on their lives. Examine your own life,” another comment reads.
“People, the Duggars are People too. Let’s be nice. Let’s Not judge. Leave that for God!!! After all, are You perfect????” another supporter writes.
Josh Duggar’s fans also love quoting John 8:7.
“Whoever hasn’t sinned should throw the first stone.”
Jessa Duggar probably doesn’t think that she’s perfect or sin-free, but she certainly sees no problem with throwing stones. In fact, she thinks it’s important to judge others whenever they make a mistake.
The New Civil Rights Movement recently shared one of Jessa Duggar’s old Facebook posts under the headline, “Jessa Duggar Wants You All To Know You’re Probably Going To Hell.” In the post, Jessa shares her thoughts about judgment, and she seems to suggest that it’s perfectly okay for people to voice their disapproval of the way others live their lives.
“One of the most quoted verses from the Bible is Matthew 7:1 ‘Judge not!'” Jessa writes. “Whenever someone speaks out against something that God calls sin, ‘Don’t judge!’ can be heard coming from a thousand lips. People don’t like to have other people disapprove of the way they’re choosing to live their life.”
Jessa Duggar goes on to explain why she believes that it’s important to hold others accountable for their actions.
“To keep silent is to not care for their eternal destiny!” she continues. “In this world, people have seared their consciences. The standard of what is ‘ok’ or ‘permissible’ in our society today, hardly reflects God’s standard.”
“People are content to live on in lying, cursing, pride, anger, bitterness, disrespecting of parents, lust, pornography, fornication, adultery, and other sexual sins– and if anyone tries to confront them, their attitude and response is, ‘You live your life, I’ll live mine. Don’t you tell me what to do! Only God can judge me!’ They don’t even realize what they’re saying. God’s judgement isn’t something to be taken lightly! It should scare you!”
It’s possible that Jessa Duggar’s words were only aimed at those who haven’t sought forgiveness, repented, prayed on it, etc. However, as the Inquisitr previously reported, it looks like Jessa’s husband, Ben Seewald, might have given Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar a very sound judging in a Mother’s Day Instagram post.
Jessa Duggar hasn’t shared her thoughts on her brother’s old “sins,” so it’s impossible to know for sure whether she believes that the public outcry against him is justified or not. Judging from what she’s written about judgment, do you think Jessa would tell everyone to leave her brother alone, or would she say that her brother deserves to be criticized?
