Jessa Duggar Facebook God’s judgment: Jessa Duggar Warns Fans of God’s Judgement
The Duggar family of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” aren’t just known by millions for their extraordinary sized brood, but also for their open-voiced religious views. Most recently, Jessa Duggar, the 22-year-old daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, has taken to Facebook to address her fans on the topic of sin, corruption and God’s judgement.
In the post written Wednesday morning, Duggar began by stating that she knew the following words wouldn’t made her popular, but that wasn’t what she was writing for. She said that everything came from the Bible, and then delves into the heart of her message. She writes about the sin in today’s word, and say, “”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.”
She cites pornography, adultery and other sexual sins as examples and believes that people are “content” to live their lives no matter what others think. This, she says, is not how it should be. “God’s judgment isn’t something to be taken lightly! It should scare you!” She proclaimed. She says that human’s judgement in our world is “1000x lighter” and “usually just a voicing of disapproval.” She further stresses her point by adding, “But when unbelieving, sinful men die and stand before God, he justly condemns them to hell.”
She urges her followers to “stay away from sin” and shares that she herself would be lost still if it weren’t for God’s grace. Duggar wants her fans to be saved from “the wrath to come.” She says her ultimate reason for writing the post is to perform her duty as a Christian. “To not tell people this is to hide the truth from them,” she explained. “To keep silent is to not care for their eternal destiny. I care about you, and this is why I am speaking out!”
She concluded her post by listing a series of Bible verses, and urged her followers to read most passages from the holy text.
“If you find yourself a sinner in need of Jesus, then open your Bible today and begin to read the books of John and Romans,” she wrote. “Let the Word of God root out the sins of your heart. Do not let up until you have found Salvation for your soul!”
This isn’t the first time Jessa has made headlines with her social media account.
US Magazine adds: “She went on to give examples of excuses people have used when it comes to religion. Writing about a person who believes in ‘a loving God, not one who would send people to hell,’ Duggar blasted the belief as contradictory to the Bible.”
“Every one of us have broken God’s law, and hell is our deserved punishment. (Unless you’re reading some very distorted ‘translation’ of the Bible, you cannot get around the fact that there is a hell),” she writes.
Here’s the full post:
One of the most quoted verses from the Bible is Matthew 7:1 “Judge not!” 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.
I will speak to you a hard truth. I do not write this because I think that it will bring me popularity. It won’t. But it is Truth from the Word of God: the Bible.
To not tell people this is to hide the truth from them. To keep silent is to not care for their eternal destiny! I care about you, and this is why I am speaking out!
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! Man’s “judgement” is a 1000x lighter… usually just a voicing of disapproval. But when unbelieving, sinful men die and stand before God, He justly condemns them to hell.
But people disregard the Bible, and instead use all kinds of human logic to try to justify their way of living:
Person #1: “I’ve been living this lifestyle for years, and I’m a ‘Christian.’ I don’t feel that God is angry with me. I believe in a loving God, not one who would send people to hell.”
The person speaking this is right– their god is not angry with them. He can’t be, because he doesn’t exist. They are not talking about the God of the Bible. They have created a god in their own mind to suit themselves. They have removed any notion of the Justice of God, and have created a god of their imagination that they can be comfortable with.
The Bible teaches that God is a Just Judge, and He must punish sin. Every one of us have broken God’s law, and hell is our deserved punishment. (Unless you’re reading some very distorted “translation” of the Bible, you cannot get around the fact that there is a hell).
Person #2: “I have a ‘peace’ about this, and I’m listening to my heart. God doesn’t seem to be judging me. If God didn’t approve, why wouldn’t He strike me dead right now?”
First off, our human hearts are bent toward sin and not righteousness. We shouldn’t follow the inclinations of our heart, but rather we know what is right and wrong according to what we find in God’s Word: the Bible.
Secondly, God isn’t slacking to fulfill His promised Judgement on sin–it’s coming. And the only reason you’re are alive right now is because He is merciful and has kept your heart beating for another day. He is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish but that all should reach repentance. But He will not hold back forever. The hours of your time here on earth are ticking away. You’re not promised another day, or even another breath. God’s Day of Judgement draws near. It will come as a thief in the night–when you least expect it. Everything that you have done in secret will be exposed. Nothing we do is hidden from God’s view. (1 Peter 3:9&10)
This should be concerning to you. I know it was for me! When I saw myself in light of God’s standard, and I knew that I fell short. But I found hope in the Gospel– the “good news” of Jesus Christ! I would still be lost today were it not for His grace!
Read what God has done so that you and I might be forgiven of our sins and saved from the punishment we deserve:
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.
20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
Repent! Turn away from sin, and to Jesus Christ today! Be saved from the wrath to come.
The believing man has Christ’s perfect record put to their account.
God gives him a new heart and new desires.
If you find yourself a sinner in need of Jesus, then open your Bible today and begin to read the books of John and Romans. Let the Word of God root out the sins of your heart. Do not let up until you have found Salvation for your soul!
Last year, dugger was photographed posing with a pink and black rifle.
The photo, originally from May, got picked up by several media outlets this week, and as soon as fans of the show saw it, commenters took to Seewald’s Facebook page to slam Duggar for her decision to pose with a gun.
“They cannot do a front hug….or kiss…….but it is okay to hold up an assault weapon for giggles, yet we know how powerful Facebook, and other social networking tools are, this sends a strong message…..Each to their own, but when in the public eye, especially one of the ‘Duggar Girls’… It is her right to do as she wishes, but come on guys…….this is not tasteful,” one commenter wrote.
Another added, “While I believe in the right to [bear] arms, I can’t believe a Christian would send out this photo because it’s fun. If you want to be an adult act like one. I doubt her parents are proud of that picture.”
You can watch the Duggar family in 19 Kids and Counting Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on TLC.
