Did the Duggars Sell Their Souls for Fame? Vainglory is to be Avoided!
I saw this on a website called "Fake Josh Duggar". It's Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar before their wedding and is originally from their public Instagram. I suppose some would say they are doing the ASL symbol for "I love you" and maybe they don't know any better. One always likes to hope for the best, but since this horus hand sign is so universal among celebrities, one ponders the other possibility too.
More and more I do not think the Duggar family is just some deceived folks caught up in the fame machine, but something darker. I do not think all the children young or grown are in on the deal, the parents definitely are, but their increasing fame seems more sinister to me. Even non-believers are writing articles noticing their severe hypocrisy and asking if they have sold their souls.
The Duggars Sold Their Souls To Be Celebrities, So Good Luck To Them When They Arrive In Heaven
don’t know. There’s just something slightly hypocritical to me about making a big stink about guarding your children from the evils of media as well as the general human population — and then turning around and making insane amounts of money off of the media as well as those humans you’ve deemed inferior to your family. Their TV series, , was bad enough when it came to this. But the recent deluge of family news in the mainstream (yeah, I said it) media crosses the line. What line? I don’t know. I’m a writer, not a geometrist. Just know that the line’s been crossed. Everyone’s at fault. Except Jinger Duggar, for obvious reasons. (Run baby gurrrlll, runnnnnnn)
Vainglory is a word that appears in the Bible. We are to avoid it as much as strife. What does vainglory mean?
Phil 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Here is what the dictionary tells us.
