Jessa Duggar Seewald just dropped a plumb line in the United States. Duggar, of 19 Kids and Counting Fame, is turning heads and stirring the spirits of her Facebook followers this week with a post about God’s judgment.
In Duggar’s opinion, one of the most quoted verses from the Bible is Matthew 7:1 “Judge not!” But she believes that’s misinterpreted because folks don’t like other folks to criticize how they are living 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!” Duggar wrote on her Facebook page.
“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 judgment isn’t something to be taken lightly! It should scare you! Man’s ‘judgment’ 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.”
Duggar went on to say that people disregard the Bible, using “all kinds of human logic” to try to justify their lifestyles. She gives examples of those who claim they’ve been living sinful lifestyles for years and don’t believe God is angry with them; that a loving god would not send people to hell; that they have peace about their lifestyle and are listening to their heart; and that if God disapproved why doesn’t He strike them dead?
