Let it be written. Jessa Duggar took to Instagram to preach from the bible, posting a passage about confessing one’s sins. This, of course, comes in the midst of her brother, Josh Duggar’s, horrifying sex scandal.
Jessa Duggar is breaking her silence on the scandal which continues to rock her family. The 22-year-old, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Ben Seewald, has responded to the situation, posting a photo on Aug. 23 of a very apt bible verse in light of her brother, Josh Duggar, 27, and the recent “sins” which he has been fessing up to. Check out what she had to say!
“If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth,” read the passage which Jessa shared online. “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
The passage went on to say, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Check out the entire post below.
The passage is, obviously, very applicable to what Josh has been going through these last few months and, specifically, the last week. On Aug. 20, following the release of information from cheating website AshleyMadison.com, the eldest Duggar admitted to cheating on his wife, Anna Duggar. “I am so ashamed of the double life I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him,” he said. He also called himself “the biggest hypocrite ever which, after reviewing video of him singing “Loyalty Song,” at his wedding, we can’t say we disagree with.
Earlier this year, Josh also confessed to having molested five young girls back in 2002, when he was 14 years old. His wife has not yet spoken explicitly on the matter.
Do you think Jessa is right that Josh’s sins can be “cleansed” now that he’s confessed?
