Jessa Duggar Shares A Message Of Forgiveness Days After Affair Scandal Erupts

Jessa Duggar has a fair amount of experience practicing the art of forgiveness toward her brother, Josh. Along with their sister, Jill, Jessa was molested by the reality TV family's eldest son; when the history of abuse became public, she issued a clear statement of support.

Now, in the wake of her brother's implication in the Ashley Madison hack, it seems Jessa is offering her forgiveness again — this time, with a Bible passage. Over the weekend, Jessa shared a passage called "Walk in the Light" on her Instagram account.

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness," the passage reads.

The verses appear underlined, and were shared without a caption. It's seems obvious, however, that Jessa is referring to the recent admission of Josh's attempted extramarital philandering. The 27-year-old father of four was recently outed for having two Ashley Madison accounts, for which he paid more than $1000, including a money-back "affair guarantee" fee of $250.

Josh Duggar posted an apology for his actions last week, calling himself a hypocrite and — in the original text on the Duggar family website — blaming his actions on a "secret addiction" to pornography.
