Jessa Seewald, nee Jessa Duggar, might have been referencing her sexual molester brother Josh Duggar in an old Facebook post. Hindsight is bringing lots of the 19 Kids and Counting family's words back to haunt them, and this time is no different. And in addition to referencing her brother and his heinous actions, did Jessa Duggar Seewald--at the very same time--defy the Bible passage in Matthew 7:1 that says, 'Judge not lest ye be judged?'
The New Civil Rights Movement was the first to bring this notion to the attention of both fans and critics of 19 Kids and Counting. In light of the recent blowing of Josh Duggar's long-kept cover, see what you read into Jessa's words.
In Jessa Seewald's Facebook post, dated this past February 25th, she not only defied the basic Christian principle, but also defied those who believe in a loving God. She clearly spoke of hell, and the belief that God sends people there.
Might Jessa Duggar Seewald still be living her own personal hell as a result of what Josh Duggar purportedly did to her? Four of his five victims are said to be his own sisters, with Jessa Duggar likely being among them.
Jessa Seewald's husband, Ben Seewald, seemingly lashed out at his in-laws, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, in a Mother's Day post.
"A little late in posting, but I had a wonderful Mother's day with my Mom and wife! I want to give a shout out to my Mom and Dad. They've always sought to please God in raising me and my siblings. They've been loving, caring, and provided us with a good home and many happy memories. While many parents are abusing their children, earning the condemnation of God, my parents have always been protective of us and by God's grace have made our home a safe haven. They loved us enough to have standards, rooted in Scripture, and stick by them even when it would've been easier for them just to let us do whatever we wanted to. They loved us too much for that. That's a lot to say in this culture where parents who care enough to set standards for their kids are mocked and dishonored and where the ones who yield to their rebellious children in compromise are praised as "loving". I realize they're not perfect. No parents are. Yet over the years, as their oldest, I've seen them grow and mature, humble themselves before God and us children and ask forgiveness when they've ever been in the wrong. Atop all of this, they've endeavored to pass on the greatest gift to us, the love of Jesus Christ. They've faithfully read His Word to us and told us of His grace. They've always brought us to church, to grow in the faith and have given me a vision for eternity, by the grace of God, so that my life wouldn't be wasted, or my eternity damned. Their prayers, guidance, and companionship I cherish to this day," Ben Seewald captioned his post that accompanied a photo of parents Michael and Guinn Seewald.

Is the media hyping up hindsight in light of Josh Duggar's sexual molestations, or is it just now becoming clear that Jessa Seewald--along with sisters Jana Duggar, Jill Duggar Dillard, and Jinger Duggar--may have been living in their own hell since their brother was a teen?
