While preaching on the power of forgiveness, the former soccer star didn't hesitate to dub Josh Duggar a "wicked sinner" who deserved to serve out his prison time in a recorded Youtube sermon shared on Tuesday, June 21.
"Josh’s life has proven to be one of a hypocrite. One life in public, and one life in private," Jeremy called out the Counting On alum, adding that Josh needs to "repent" and "embrace" the court's sentencing. "Genuine repentance for a man like Josh Duggar, for anyone, would be very obvious to everyone."
"True repentance is not asking for lenience, knowing that what he deserves is the eternal punishment of God," he continued, seemingly referencing Josh's legal team's repeated call for a five-year sentence. "True repentance is not concerned with reputation, damage control or getting off the hook."
The 34-year-old — who was ordained as a pastor back in 2016 — also explained it would be a "miscarriage of justice for a guilty criminal to be let back into the public."
"Josh can be forgiven, but that in no way erases the demand for his crimes to be punished," he noted in the video. "Forgiveness never means that temporal consequences disappear."
"My brother-in-law will one day stand before the [judgment] of Christ and have to give account for his actions – and I fear for him," Jeremy said in the lengthy sermon. "If you take advantage of the vulnerable for your gain, you should be terrified."
As OK! previously reported, Josh was found guilty of receiving and possessing child pornography on Thursday, December 9. Six months later, Judge Timothy L. Brooks sentenced the father-of-seven to 151 months behinds bars, ordered him to pay a $50,000 fine and ruled he would not be allowed unsupervised time with his children.
Josh shares Mackynzie, 12, Michael, 10, Marcus, 8, Meredith, 6, Mason, 4, Maryella, 2, and Madyson, 7 months, with his wife, Anna Duggar, who has remained by his side despite him being found guilty of the heinous crimes.
