Jessa Duggar wrote a lengthy Facebook post Wednesday to caution more liberal Christians from not taking the Bible literally.

Jessa Duggar On God’s Judgment

Duggar’s lengthy and controversial post focused heavily on sin, God’s judgement of the sinner and the unrepentant sinner’s fate in hell.

“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,” wrote Duggar, who along with her large family, is a member of the evangelical Baptist Quiverfull movement. “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!

“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,” Duggar, 21, continued. “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!”
Duggar, who married husband Ben Seewald back in November, added, “They don’t even realize what they’re saying. God’s judgement isn’t something to be taken lightly! It should scare you! Man’s “judgement” 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 then went on to give examples of ways in which people “disregard the bible,” according to her and her beliefs.

“‘I’ve been living this lifestyle for years, and I’m a ‘Christian.’ I don’t feel that God is angry with me. I believe in a loving God, not one who would send people to hell.’ The person speaking this is right– their god is not angry with them. He can’t be, because he doesn’t exist. They are not talking about the God of the Bible,” she said of the first person. Of the second person, she wrote, “‘I have a ‘peace’ about this, and I’m listening to my heart. God doesn’t seem to be judging me. If God didn’t approve, why wouldn’t He strike me dead right now.’ We shouldn’t follow the inclinations of our heart, but rather we know what is right and wrong according to what we find in God’s Word: the Bible. God isn’t slacking to fulfill His promised Judgement on sin–it’s coming. And the only reason you’re are alive right now is because He is merciful and has kept your heart beating for another day.”

This is not the first time that Duggar has shared her religious views. She’s previously come under fire for comparing abortion to the Holocaust following a visit to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
