One of the "19 Kids and Counting" daughters took to Facebook to blast sinners.
Editor's note: This article was originally published in February, but given current events surrounding the Duggar family, especially Josh Duggar, it seemed fitting to republish it now.
The Duggar family, of "19 Kids and Counting" fame, are known for their religious extremism, including believing in no sex before marriage – not even kissing, no abortion, no same-sex marriage, no short sleeves or short skirts for women, and women exist to serve their husbands. Christian evangelicals, they reportedly adhere to the tenets of the biblical patriarchy movement.
"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," she warned on Facebook. "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!"
She mocked those who "don't like to have other people disapprove of the way they're choosing to live their life."
"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. People don't like to have other people disapprove of the way they're choosing to live their life."
And she launched into a rant against sin, warning people that contrary to what most believe, God does judge – and they are probably going to hell.
"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!'," the recently married Duggar daughter wrote. "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 says some people "believe in a loving God, not one who would send people to hell," but that god "doesn't exist."
