  16. I am so happy for the young couple. I hope they have many more wonderful moments like these. I had seen last night posted a group snap shot of the Bates children with Josh on the forefront And I was very offended not because the Bates and Duggars are friends but for the fact viewers feelings are not being respected.I do not care to see or hear anything about Josh until I see and know without a doubt he truly is born again. Josh stood proclaiming a new life in Christ and he himself has not lived it. His mother had a conversion The Bates parents had one. Proclaim Christ if you know Him personally don't if you do not and don't show pictures of someone who mocked us. Yes we all are sinners but Christ died for our sins sins are forgiven when there is a conversion but there needs to be signs of a conversion and Josh shows none. Please do not offend a true believer in Christ who had a personal conversion. Thank you.

    1. I understand you are hurt, and it it helps any, so am I. Let's just hope the Bates family will understand your point of view and respect it. .I do know they are loving people and have placed Christ first in their own lives as well. I think they care.
