The family has 20 children. They have seven children-in-law. They have one child in a courtship. They have twelve grandchildren.
I hate that your family is going through what they are with Josh, but I have to say that he is very much the kind of Christian that turns people away from Christ. That is why the support for him wasn't that great, because while he knew he was struggling with his issues he was publicly condeming others, that is probably why the backlash was so severe and folks weren't that merciful. I was so angry when he said gays are a danger to children and belonging to support for family knowing all the while his guilt. I don't wish you or your family any ill will whatsoever, and I hope he recovers but I think humility is in order.
Humility by us all is what's needed. We are all sinners deserving death. What Josh did is horrible, but we are no better. The grace that's been given to us needs to be practiced here.
How does Josh have anything to do with Ben and Jessa's pregnancy announcement?
Congrats Ben and Jessa!! Praying for a safe pregnancy and easy labor!! :-)
