Jill Duggar and Jinger Duggar's social media behavior has sparked rumors of a family feud, and fans think they've discovered why the sisters aren't getting along these days.

Some Duggar fans recently observed that Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, aren't following Jinger Duggar on Instagram. The couple has also snubbed Jinger's husband, Jeremy Vuolo, by ignoring his social media account. As the Hollywood Gossip reports, some fans believe this is a sign that there's some sibling rivalry going on, and there's been speculation that Jill is jealous of Jinger. However, there may be another reason Jill and Derick don't care to keep up with their in-laws on Instagram; perhaps they're upset with Jeremy over his comments about missionaries.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have been working as missionaries for almost two years now, and some members of the Free Jinger web forum think that Jeremy Vuolo had the couple in mind when he preached about the importance of being properly prepared for life on the mission field. In a sermon titled "Philippians: God's Sovereignty in Establishing His Church," Jinger Duggar's husband blasts "unqualified, uncalled, unconfirmed, unsent zealots" who "cause more damage than they do good" by deciding to become missionaries.

As E! News reports, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have admitted that they weren't ready for life on the mission field when they left for El Salvador in 2015. However, Derick revealed that he decided to quit his job and move his family to El Salvador "when God brought about an opportunity much earlier" than he and Jill had been expecting. The couple didn't have time to take Spanish lessons before embarking on their long-term mission trip, so they had to rely on interpreters to help them spread the gospel. As Us Weekly reports, Derick confessed to knowing only 136 Spanish words during an episode of Counting On that followed him and Jill during a shopping trip in Guatemala.

"There is the issue of many who grow zealous without growing up."
"Do you have $800 in your bank account? Tomorrow you can be in Nepal preaching to people who have never heard of Jesus in their life."

Jeremy says it takes years of preparation to become a successful missionary, and he complains that some who choose the lifestyle don't want to make the necessary sacrifices.

"They don't want to work to support themselves, give themselves to study, or give themselves to the necessary abandoning of comfort required to do damage to your flesh," Jeremy said.

Do you think Jeremy Vuolo was thinking of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard when he wrote his sermon?
