Jessa Duggar’s Facebook post about God’s judgment and that sinful men are condemned to hell has sparked international controversy and an uproar on Twitter. Jessa Duggar wrote her Facebook post about God’s judgment Wednesday morning, sharing what she calls the “hard truth” about sin and judgment in the eyes of the Bible.
According to a Feb. 25, E!Online report, the 22-year-old “19 Kids and Counting” reality star most likely had the best intentions when urging others to turn away from sin and walk towards Jesus Christ “today.” However, many readers of Duggar’s Facebook post are wondering whether Duggar is not displaying a bit too much of an arrogance.
“There is no greater arrogance than to think you know the will of the creator of the universe.”
From Jessa Duggar’s point of view, the hard truth that she is sharing on her Facebook’s “God’s judgment” post is evident in the Bible.
“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.”
“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).”
According to Duggar, people have moved away from God or created their own God in order to clear their consciences and to justify their actions.
“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!’”
Duggar continues to write,
“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.”
Jessa points out that disregarding the Bible — and instead using all kinds of human logic to justify one’s way of living — should be a concern to everyone.
“Repent! Turn away from sin, and to Jesus Christ today! Be saved from the wrath to come.”
As of Thursday, Jessa Duggar’s Facebook post about God’s judgment has received about 3,000 Likes and mostly positive feedback by her followers, reports US Weekly. On Twitter’s #JessaDuggar, many people expressed less positive thoughts about Duggar’s Facebook post:
“Jessa Duggar Post on God and Hell Causes Stir Among Believers”
“I wonder if #JessaDuggar fully understands the Ten Commandments & the 7 deadly sins or merely a narrow interpretation”
“#Duggar daughtr casts judgment against liberal Christians U’re goin 2 Hell but I’m not http://j.mp/1AbpVTA #JessaDuggar”
“Just a simple reminder to the western world in case you’ve forgotten… The Duggars are not Christian theologians! #JessaDuggar”
“It doesn’t take much guts to do anything when you’re a total moron oblivious to reality. #JessaDuggar”
“#JessaDuggar we’ll talk about this on the ‘other side’ assuming you make it there”
Jessa Duggar’s Facebook post about God’s judgment and God’s wrath prompted one Facebook comment which adds an interesting point of view:
“I used to be this girl. I get it. She’s not malicious or judgmental, she’s just being consistent with what she’s been indoctrinated with. I grew up in a cult similar to Quiverfull and you cant change their perspectives until they find out for themselves.”
