Duggar Ex’s Tell-All Slams Josh’s Molestation Scandal: “God Sees It All”
Josiah Duggar's ex, Marjorie Jackson, is not holding back.
The Christian blogger is throwing major shade at er ex's older brother, Josh, for his molestation scandal in her new tell-all where she seems to insinuate the eldest Duggar son is a "creeper."
In her book, titled Devoted: A Girl’s 31-Day Guide to Good Living with a Great God, Marjorie lambasted the 19 Kids and Counting star over his sex addiction and infidelity, which led him to confess to cheating on his wife, Anna, in August 2015.
Though Marjorie doesn't mention Josh by name, fans of the TLC show can assume the sinful person she's referring to.
“Where promiscuousness once would have been the hush-hush elephant in the room, it now seems that purity sticks out loudly more than ever in a world where anything and everything goes,” she wrote.
“How do we handle relationships? What kinds of movies, music, websites, jokes, and conversations do we allow and engage in? Is our dress suggestive and provocative, or modest and proper for a girl professing to have Jesus in her heart?”

The 19-year-old, who split from Josiah two years ago, went on to call out Josh for sneaking around on secret social media accounts, claiming that God knows all.
“Those words we text, e-mail, write and post on social media, God sees it all,” she wrote.
“He sees the comments we leave on posts. He reads the texts we send to that friend, to that guy. Jesus never excluded any of our methods of communication, on or out of cyberspace.”
"We all have weaknesses, but instead of letting them define us, decide our actions, and bring us down, we can let them be spotlights for Gods strength to steal the show as He makes up for our insufficiency. The Holy Spirit living in us is why we can live life abundantly, free of sin and pride! 'Therefore I am well content with weaknesses. . .for Christs sake,' Paul says. 'For when I am weak, then I am strong' (2 Corinthians 12:10). (from Devoted, Day 23: Humility) // TWO DAYS.

The Christian writer, who also penned the novel, The Greatest Book You've Never Read: Why the Bible Is Not Only Exciting, But It Will Change Your Life!, predicted that Josh will never fully able to cleanse himself of his sins.
“People who lie often will never be trusted, even when they’re telling the truth. They’ve become a serial liar," she wrote.
"Why would anyone who knows their record of lying believe them?”
The author advised Christian girls to be "picky" when dating, recommending them to turn to their fathers for advice on who would be a good match.
“Have standards for whom you will allow to pursue you, and be sure to screen each potential suitor through your dad or anything trusted Christian spiritual leader first!” she wrote
“That will help weed out the creepers and determine character.”
As for Josh's molestation scandal, which involved the eldest Duggar son molesting four of his youger sisters and a babysitter, the Christian blogger called it a "moral failure." She also claimed that "secrecy" in Josh's "heart" led him to sin.
It is devastating to see someone whose life was going to well suddenly crash and burn in moral failure,” she wrote.
In April 2015, Josiah announced his courtship to Marjorie. Shortly after, a police report accused Josh of molesting five minor females, including his sisters Jessa and Jill.
By August, Marjorie announced her split from Josiah and the Duggar family.
"A few weeks ago Marjorie and Josiah agreed to end their courtship, keeping in step with what they believe the Lord’s will is,” the family said in a statement to People.
