Pray for Josh Duggar and his family.
As we mentioned in a recent article, the Ashley Madison scandal has impacted hundreds of church leaders.
One of the most publicized is Josh Duggar.
He has checked himself into a treatment facility.
His family issued this statement: “As parents we are so deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions. His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear.”
“For him it will be a long journey toward wholeness and recovery. We pray that in this he comes to complete repentance and sincere change. In the meantime, we will be offering our love, care, and devoted support to Anna and our grandchildren as she also receives counsel and help for her own heart and future. During this time we continue to look to God – He is our rock and comfort. We ask for your continued prayers for our entire family.”
Josh said: “I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.”
Do you agree that Christian leaders face a higher standard of accountability?
