Let me Start by saying Good Morning ,, I am as a rule because of God a very positive person ,,, I am however disturbed by what I see ,, I watched the 19 kids and counting and loved it , there are few shows I will watch and that was one they have pulled it due to The eldest sons mistake as a youth ,, so I went to the place and posted I was mad they pulled the show and was attacked by many ,, they said horrible things to me like I was the lowest of the low the thing that got me the most is one person actually said to me ,, I guess you support molesters wow ,, being a woman that (being me) who was molested by 3 men and one being my dad ,, I wanted so bad to say many things to that woman ,, however as God would have me I shut up ,, where is the forgiveness ,, you know it took me years to overcome all the trauma I went thru and I can only imagine the trama that family is going thru ,, I have sinned in my life and I asked God to forgiven me ,, I forgave all the men who did that to me ,, I forgave my dad ,, he got saved and is in heaven now ,, I can hear them now crucify him ,,, Josh Dugger did wrong and he admitted it and I can tell you hes not the only one suffering right now ,, I am also ,, I hurt for all those girls who are having to live that again ,, if you have never been molested you have no Idea of what you go thru .. I was raped from a very young age ,, as far back as I can remember ,,, To get past that was many years of Christian counseling and Leaning on God my Father ,,, SO I ask you if you where is the love : do I condone what he did no ,,, But those girls forgave him so why cant the world ... oh well my rant of the year ,, ps please don;t write mean things on my page love Betty

    Forgiving and forgetting are two entirely different things. Forgiving is letting go of the anger and refusing to let the other person control you by holding on to all of those negative feelings. Forgiving often benefits the victim as much and sometimes more than the wrongdoer. In my past experience, forgetting is a totally different thing. If you use the incident to your own advantage and grow from it, it can be turned into a learning tool. It can help you to protect yourself in the future, so that the incident won't be repeated. Both forgiving and learning from trauma are part of the healing process.

    The fatal flaw in the Duggars program was presenting themselves as the ideal family. There is no such thing as an ideal family. We are all imperfect, regardless of the image we would like to project. Yes, the four girls within the family forgave their brother. They worked out the issues within the family structure. But what about the fifth girl who wasn't a family member?

    I am sorry but idle curiosity might have the brother touching one sister once but five girls? No! Anything beyond the first and only time of curiosity, is criminal. If you read up on how sexual predators start, I think we'd all find his behavior disturbing. Even if the boy in question thinks he no longer has a problem and is sorry, should we put it on television as a model of what family behavior should be? I could be way off base but I think we need to be very careful with this as a society.

    As for the people who said horrible things to you for sharing your opinion, that was wrong. I find it so scary that so many people can't tollerate an opinion that is different than their own. To take their anger out on you and to behave in such an abusive manner is unacceptable! You have feelings that are just as valid as the next person.

    Yes we need more forgiveness and more people getting right with the Lord. He can change even the vilest person.
    Jesus can set us free

    Everyone needs forgiveness for something. Many who wont do so probably have done alot of things in their younger days they would not want known but they will not admit it. Jesus forgave the woman at the well and even those who crucified Him.

    Seeing that documentary on tv appears to have brought back all sorts of memories for you. Well done on forgiving that woman. As mentioned in another of your replies ours isn't to pass judgement on anyone, that is for God. You are one of the lucky ones you found God and know you can turn to God at any time. emoticon

    Was out walking yesterday evening. Forgiveness everywhere I looked. Couldn't get away from it, the more I walked the more there was. Give walking along the shore at dusk a try.

    We aren't here to judge. God does the judging in the end and that is what we need to keep in mind. I have had my trials as well as many others and I think everyone needs prayers for support, not hate and anguish. You have very strong faith. Us it now and remain above the negative.

    I appreciate your point of view. We definitely do need more forgiveness in our world.

    I'm so sorry for the pain you've suffered in the past, but I'm glad for your healing in Christ Jesus too... As you know, there's no healing in one's life without Him... As for where is the forgiveness, love, grace and mercy? Well, we DO live in a fallen world, and as the years go past and we come closer to His coming back again, we will see it getting worse.
    Aside from being saved through the grace and mercy of God through His Son, there is very little if any loving kindness in the world today... Look around you... Kinda sad... BUT the good news is that we have the GOOD NEWS, and we can share it with others who need that saving grace in their lives... So let's go out into that dismal world, let's be the light and let's make a difference for the kingdom...

    Wow! I said all that?

    Never Give Up!!

    I am sorry for all you have had to go through. I know that part of the healing process is the forgiveness. Thank you for being brave enough to share your story with us. I am not sure what is going on with the family of that show, but I hope the victims are able to move on and recover from this trauma and that the young man is able to get the help he needs as well. God knows people hearts, and He is the judge. You are right to forgive this woman for what she said to you, don't let bitterness and anger make you a prisoner and don't let anyone steal your joy. emoticon

    You are so brave to share your story. I believe it is our job to keep people safe but it is God's job to judge. Forgiveness is hard but releases us from anger and helps us to be more what He wants.

    I'm with you, but many people would rather judge others, especially if they can play gotcha with Christians. It seems the latest is that someone high up leaked what should have been a sealed record to the media as her parting act, according to Fox News. So now we need to forgive that person, and keep the Duggar family in our prayers. emoticon

    People are so quick to point an accusing finger. That young man is sick and needs help. What he did is wrong and he needs to face the music, but we also need to not be judge and jury. Prayers for the victims with all the publicity would be a better use of our time. Sorry for your experiences. May God give you healing.

    I am saddened that people are lashing out so cruelly at the Duggars! The claims that they covered up their son's actions appear to be unfounded, as what I've read the parents immediately "turned" their son in to the authorities, in an effort to stop the behavior and also get him the help he needed! While I find his actions deplorable, I also understand that he has done his best to repent and according to scripture, we are ALL sinners and fall short of the Glory of God!

    We need to continue to pray for the haters and the Duggars....

    Blessings to you!

    people are cruel and judgmental, I see that type of attitude in comments to the editor or on youtube videos. It seems like there are always people that want to say mean things, even here on sparkpeople
