Duggar daughter casts judgment against liberal Christians: You’re going to Hell — but I’m not

Published

Reality TV star Jessa Duggar lectured Christians in a lengthy Facebook post about God’s wrathful judgment.

“Whenever someone speaks out against something that God calls sin, ‘Don’t judge!’ can be heard coming from a thousand lips,” Duggar said. “People don’t like to have other people disapprove of the way they’re choosing to live their life.”

The 22-year-old newlywed conceded this “hard truth” would not bring her any popularity, but the evangelical Christian celebrity said she could not “hide the truth” from her fans because she cares too much about “their eternal destiny.”

“In this world, people have seared their consciences,” Duggar warned. “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,” she continued, “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!’”

The star of “19 Kids and Counting” warned that God’s “judgement” is not something to be taken lightly.

“It should scare you! Man’s judgement (sic) is a 1000x lighter — usually just a voicing of disapproval,” Duggar said. “But when unbelieving, sinful men die and stand before God, He justly condemns them to hell.”

Duggar said self-described Christians who live sinful lifestyles falsely believe in a loving God who would not send people to Hell.

“The person speaking this is right — their god is not angry with them,” she said. “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.”

Duggar said the Bible teaches that God must punish sin with eternal damnation, and she sneered at “distorted” translations of the Bible that gloss over this.

“Every one of us have broken God’s law, and hell is our deserved punishment,” Duggar said.

She said the human heart is “bent toward sin and not righteousness,” so people should follow the Bible instead of their own moral instincts.

“God isn’t slacking to fulfill His promised Judgement (sic) on sin — it’s coming,” Duggar warned. “The only reason you’re are alive right now is because He is merciful and has kept your heart beating for another day.”

She warned that God could strike anyone down at any time and render his final “judgement” – but she’s not the least bit worried.

“This should be concerning to you,” Duggar said. “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!”

‘You cannot expect anything but fascism’: Pedagogy theorist on how Trump ‘legitimated a culture of lying, cruelty and a collapse of social responsibility’

Published

on

The impeachment of Donald Trump appears to be a crisis without a history, at least a history that illuminates, not just comparisons with other presidential impeachments, but a history that provides historical lessons regarding its relationship to a previous age of tyranny that ushered in horrors associated with a fascist politics in the 1930s.  In the age of Trump, history is now used to divert and elude the most serious questions to be raised about the impeachment crisis. The legacy of earlier presidential impeachments, which include Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, provide a comparative historical context for analysis and criticism. And while Trump’s impeachment is often defined as a more serious constitutional crisis given his attempt to use the power of the presidency to advance his personal political agenda, it is a crisis that willfully ignores the conditions that gave rise to Trump’s presidency along with its recurring pattern of authoritarian behavior, policies, and practices.  One result is that the impeachment process with its abundance of political theater and insipid media coverage treats Trump’s crimes as the endpoint of an abuse of power and an illegal act, rather than as a political action that is symptomatic of a long legacy of conditions that have led to the United States’ slide into the abyss of authoritarianism.

Trump is trying Middle East Peace plan 2.0 after the first one flopped

Published

on

President Donald Trump is scheduled to submit his second Middle East peace plan after the first one senior son-in-law Jared Kushner came up with didn't go over very well.

"We will get this done," Trump claimed in May 2017.

“We'll start a process which hopefully will lead to peace,” Trump said. “Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay?”
