Jessa Seewald, a married daughter of 19 Kids and Counting‘s Duggar family, has a lengthy message for all of her Facebook followers.
Seewald, who, like her family, is a very devout Christian, took to the social media site Wednesday to warn all of her fans and followers that Judgment Day is coming.
“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,” Seewald wrote. “People don’t like to have other people disapprove of the way they’re choosing to live their life.”
She continued, “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!”
Seewald goes on to say that the ills of the world have weakened the consciences of the devout and secular alike, and that people who claim God isn’t judging them are wrong.
“This should be concerning to you,” she wrote. “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!”
The Duggars have already garnered media attention for views that many consider intolerant. They openly speak out against abortion — even going so far as to compare it to the Holocaust — and gay rights. Their conservative views have also drawn criticism for how they dress — like wearing a skirt to the gym — and how they date — the family only practices courtship and some of its members saved their first kiss for marriage.
