Anna Duggar’s siblings beg her to leave husband Josh after his shocking double life is revealed. Subscribe now for more on the cheating scandal and the Duggars’ ultra-conservative lifestyle, only in PEOPLE!
Anna and Josh Duggar‘s families are getting involved in the most recent Duggar scandal, which erupted on Thursday when Josh confessed to cheating on his wife Anna and having an addiction to pornography.
Since the admission, the Duggars have made no further public statements, but both Josh and Anna’s siblings have taken to social media to weigh in on the scandal.
Both Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Jill (Duggar) Dillard – two of Josh’s sisters who came forward and forgave Josh earlier this year after reports revealed he had molested them and three other underage girls as a teenager – have posted on their respective social media accounts since Josh’s Thursday confession.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness,” reads the verse.
Seewald also Tweeted the words to a Martin Luther hymn on Sunday, which read of God helping “amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing” in a world with “devils filled.”

Jill, 24, also took to Instagram on Sunday to encourage fans to tune in to the live stream of a Sunday sermon led by Pastor Ronnie Floyd at Cross Church in Springdale, Arkansas, where the Duggar family has attended services in the past.
The sermon obliquely referred to Josh’s recent scandal, though Floyd – who has previously shown support for the Duggars – was careful to state that the service was not designed to make anyone “feel guilty,” but for educating and empowering those who may not understand the biblical view on sex.
Jill husband’s Derick, 26, also shared a link to the sermon, as well as several Bible verses curiously written in other languages.
One of Derick’s Tweets, posted on Friday, comes from Matthew 28:19 and is written in Russian. The words translate to: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
In an Instagram post on Monday, Derick shared a photo of Arabic text which translates to: “What shall we say then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means. We are those who have died to sin. How can we live it any longer? (Romans 6:1-2)”

On the other hand, Anna’s brother Daniel Keller seems to feel very differently than the Duggar siblings about the scandal.
Several comments by Keller (which appear to have since been deleted) on Seewald’s Facebook photo of the Bible verse show Keller defending his sister, slamming his parents and bashing Josh.
“I told [Anna] I would go get her and let her and her children stay w me,” he wrote in one comment. “She said she’s staying where she’s at. But I won’t stop trying to get that pig out of our family.”
Keller revealed that his parents are “preaching” that their daughter Anna stay with Josh, writing that they were more interested in how a divorce would make them look than “trying to truly get josh some help and getting Anna and the kids out of there till he has gotten that help.”
“I tell you who I don’t give a s— about is that pig she calls her husband,” concluded Keller.
Josh and Anna, both 27, married in 2008 and have four children together.
A source with ties to the family told PEOPLE last week that Anna would likely not leave Josh despite his infidelity.
