Jessa Seewald (nee Duggar) was recently accused of sinning by commenters on a recent pregnancy update post.
“@JessaSeewald isn’t vanity a sin?” one commenter wrote on the former 19 Kids and Counting star’s Twitter update, showing her blossoming belly at just over 31 weeks of pregnancy.

Other commenters weren’t quite as harsh in their condemnation of Jessa Seewald, but they were certainly unkind.
“Do you really need 1,000 people telling you how great you look in every selfie?” one commenter asked.
“@Miss__Tina @JessaSeewald: What else has she got? No job, no real education… Her identity is wrapped up in the approval of others. Sad,” another commented.
“@JessaSeewald Maybe put the camera down and help Syrian refugees? #theChristianthingtodo,” another commenter wrote.
Is Jessa Duggar Seewald coming under fire because of her brother, Josh Duggar’s sexual scandals? Or are people simply looking for reasons to hate the Duggar family?
Since Josh Duggar first made news this spring with his sexual molestation scandal, the media has come down hard on all members of the former 19 Kids and Counting family. After TLC cancelled their show because of the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal, things got even worse.
Now with Josh Duggar in a Christian rehab for his “sexual sins,” it seems like people are nitpicking any member of the Duggar family who does something others deem even remotely offensive.
Jessa Seewald still has fans, and those fans likely enjoy the pictures she posts as updates on her pregnancy.
Yet the Bible does say vanity is a sin. In the Duggar family, looking at a woman and experiencing feelings of lust is considered sinful. Jim Bob Duggar even has a code word–Nike–he uses when a woman is coming toward him and his boys on a sidewalk. When Jim Bob says the word Nike, everyone immediately looks at his shoes to avoid any lustful thoughts.
Should Jessa Seewald stop posting her pregnancy update photos if her faith deems vanity is a sin? Or do the members of the Duggar family pick and choose their sins?
