Jessa Duggar’s father-in-law says God is super sad because Josh Duggar embarrassed him

Michael Seewald, the father-in-law of disgraced Josh Duggar’s sister, Jessa has shared his feelings regarding the latest Ashley Madison scandal at length on his personal blog.

TL;DR, Josh Duggar has brought grief and shame on the name of God.

Mr. Seewald is not shocked that thirty nine million people are members of the infidelity site Ashley Madison, but he is surprised that so many who profess to be Christians are “secretly serving sin” and found to be hypocrites.

“Anyone can subscribe to an external system of doctrine and ethics, but only true believers are renovated from the inside,” writes Seewald, who in an earlier post defended the Duggars after Josh’s molestation of his sisters was brought to light.

What was done in his youth was not such a big deal and Jim Bob and Michelle dealt with the sexual abuse in their family according to God’s word. That’s what Seewald said then. But now that another man’s daughter is the victim of Josh’s sexual deviancy, he’s not feeling nearly so gracious and forgiving.

“[…We] are fooling ourselves if we think that we can have a lifestyle of disregard for God’s holy commandments and still maintain hope of eternal life,” Seewald wrote.

The angry father-in-law is distressed to say, “Josh Duggar’s greatest sin is a byproduct of the sum total of his secretly sinful lifestyle. That is, that by his hypocrisy, he blasphemed the name of God. He claimed to be a Christian, but by his deeds he has suggested otherwise. With the name of God on his lips he lived a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil. While proudly saying things like, ‘Our family is like the epitome of conservative values’, he was looking at porn and soliciting affairs.”

How does Mr. Seewald explain how a seemingly upright young man like Josh could secretly betray the trust of his wife and family, not to mention the Christian community at-large, which has held the Duggar family in such high regard?

Not surprisingly, Michael falls back on the old standard “No True Scotsman” fallacy by claiming, “Josh was a pretender.”

“True Christians fail often, but their lives are truly being conformed to the image of Christ. Do not look at Josh and justify your own sins by dismissing the reality of genuine faith and a holy God. When you stand before God, you will not be compared to hypocritical Christians. You will be judged by God’s holy law. When you are found guilty, you will not get to say, ‘But what about Josh? I’m better than he is’. God’s wrath will burn against you because of your own sins.”

Although he quoted Paul’s warning that, “Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God,” Seewald still holds out hope that eventually Josh will come to repentance and truly get saved and become a new man in Christ — for real this time.

“As wicked as Josh has been, and any other sinner, forgiveness can still be obtained. The consequences of Josh’s sins will be with him the rest of his life, but by true repentance and faith in Christ, he may have eternal life.”

Um, that’s some really pathetic reasoning and major wishful thinking, Mr. Seewald. Better to just face the reality that Josh Duggar’s sexual deviancy is not going away and urge Anna to grab the kids and get out — get the hell out of there now!

Vyckie Garrison was once a minor celebrity in the Quiverfull Movement, made famous by TV’s Duggar family. As a devout, Bible-believing Christian and the mother of seven homeschooled children, Garrison spent 16 years, with her husband, publishing a newspaper for families on a similar path. Today, via a website called No Longer Quivering, she publishes resources for women leaving the movement.

Accused child molester Roy Moore defends Brett Kavanaugh: ‘I too was the object of false allegations’

Published

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
