The world has gone nuts!

Shalom, everyone!  The news media keeps bringing up the “inappropriate touching” events of Josh Duggar when he was 14 years old.  For those who don’t know who Josh Duggar is, he is one of the 19 children of the conservative Christian Duggar family who have a “reality show” called “19 Kids and Counting.”  (And no, my husband and I don’t watch any “reality shows” as most of them are too stupid for words, catering to depraved mindsets and people who are totally enmeshed in “the world.”)

Well, lo and behold, that illustrious “all roads lead to God”  bastion of virtue, Oprah (who is all into “tolerance” for “gay marriage” and other things YHWH considers SIN), got wind of the fact that Josh Duggar (now in his late twenties) has a past history of “inappropriate touching” (which Josh, as a young teen, had confessed to his parents and for which they ultimately got him professional help), and she immediately launched her own investigation – which, of course, led to a media frenzy and headlines such as this one that didn’t accurately reflect the actual events. 

Okay, before I go on, please know that as a sexually abused baby, child and teenager myself, I am certainly not condoning what Josh Duggar did – but come on!  What teenager (a time of life when hormones are raging!) hasn’t become obsessed with sex, with wanting to know what the opposite sex “looks and feels” like?  Not all of them go on to actually “touch” someone, but I challenge everyone reading this to think back at some of your own behaviors when you were teenagers!  Would YOU want Oprah to launch an investigation into YOUR past?

The fact is, back then the Duggars DID report it to the police AND got their son professional help, when he confessed to having “sinned”; and hey, how is it that a “closed juvenile police record” of someone who was guilty of “groping” was allowed to be leaked to the MEDIA?  What kind of a world are we living in?  

Well, so all the holier-than-thou hypocrites (most of whom wouldn’t know God if they fell on Him!) have now crawled out of the woodwork to judge the Duggars and make disparaging comments and are voicing their “intellectual armchair opinions” about what the Duggars SHOULD or SHOULD NOT have done.  And they ALL want to see Josh crucified!

HYPOCRITES!

I hate that public “stars” like Oprah will tolerate anything EXCEPT Christians who have dealt with a wayward son through the power of God and proper legal channels. These “stars” and other loudmouths of the world will applaud people like Bruce Jenner and his sex change and insist it’s awesome and perfectly normal, and they’re anxiously waiting for his upcoming “reality show” – but hey, let’s make an example and public spectacle out of some Christians who are using biblical principles to deal with the trials in their lives!

And of course, secular psychiatrists are all over this, saying all kinds of nonsensical things, such as Robi Ludwig (who is clearly trying to rip people who attempt to live by godly principles) who said on World News Now that the Duggar family’s Christian environment may have played a role. Her exact words were: "If you live in an environment where you're an adolescent and somehow taught or led to believe that your sexual impulses are bad or animalistic, what do you do with those impulses?  I think that's exactly what happened with Josh."  (See transcript here.)

SIGH!

I would have loved to have included the "woman at the well story" in John 8, where Yeshua supposedly said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”  But unfortunately, this story is nonexistent in the Peshitta and does not appear in the four earliest Greek manuscripts of John.  So I will leave you with these:

Psalm 50: 16 But to the wicked God says: "What right do you have to proclaim my laws or take my covenant on your lips, 17 when you so hate to receive instruction and fling my words behind you? 18 When you see a thief, you join up with him, you throw in your lot with adulterers, 19 you give your mouth free rein for evil and harness your tongue to deceit; 20 you sit and speak against your kinsman, you slander your own mother's son. 21 When you do such things, should I stay silent? You may have thought I was just like you; but I will rebuke and indict you to your face. 22 Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to save you. 23 "Whoever offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice honors me; and to him who goes the right way I will show the salvation of God."  (CJB)

Romans 2: 1. There is therefore no excuse for you, O man, who judges your neighbor; for by judging your neighbor, you condemn yourself; for you that judges, do practice the same things.  2. And we know that the judgment of Elohim is in accordance with truth, in regard to those who practice these things.  3. And what thinks you, O man, who judges those who practice these things, while practicing them yourself, that you will escape the judgment of Elohim?  4. Or will you abuse the riches of his benevolence, and his long suffering, and the opportunity which he gives you? And do you not know that the benevolence of Elohim should bring you to repentance?  5. But, because of the hardness of your un-repenting heart, you are treasuring up a store of wrath against the day of wrath, and against the revelation of the righteous judgment of Elohim:  6. Who will recompense to every man, according to his deeds. (AENT)

Romans 3: 9. What then, have we the superiority when we have before decided as to both Jews and Gentiles,  that all of them are under sin?  10. As it is written: There is none righteous; no, not one:  11. And none that understands, nor that seeks after Elohim. (AENT)

Matthew 7: 3. And why do you see the twig that is in the eye of your brother, and you not observe the beam that is in your eye?  (AENT)

1 Corinthians 4: 5. Therefore pronounce not judgments before the time, (or) until Master YHWH comes, who will pour light upon the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the thoughts of (men’s) hearts: and then will each one have (due) praise from Elohim.  (AENT)

    Excellent response to the outrageous self-righteous phonies that stoned (verbally) a 14-year old boy ... who had confessed and repented way back then ... and was thereafter appropriately handled by his parents ... wherein the police were informed ... and he received professional help.

    In addition to what I have already written on this subject, I am going to share it on my own timeline as well.
