JESSICA ALBA decided to leave her born-again Christian church after religious leaders accused her of being too promiscuous. The FANTASTIC FOUR star insists her multi-ethnic appearance stopped her from being accepted in the Latin community she grew up in, so she turned to the church looking for comfort. After four years as a born-again Christian, Alba backed away from religion because "older men would hit on me and my youth pastor said it was because I was wearing provocative clothing, when I wasn't. "It just made me feel like if I was in any way desirable to the opposite sex, that it was my fault, and it made me ashamed of my body and of being a woman." Alba also vehemently disagreed with the church's condemnation of premarital sex and homosexuality and was bothered by the lack of strong female role models in the Bible. She tells US Elle magazine, "I thought it was a nice guide, but it certainly wasn't how I was going to live my life."

Christianity is a way of life. You have to follow the teachings in the Bible, but doesn't mean that Christians are sin-free. We are all sinners, and we all struggle to be good. As a woman, you have to be careful not to arouse men, so if you go to church, you have to dress respectfully. Respect for God and for men. The people in her church was probably just concerned about her, but it doesn't mean that Christians should be judgmental. Humility is one of the very basic teachings of Christianity. You have to humble yourself before God and even men. If you don't want to be told, then Solomon would be very angry with you. He would call you a fool. :)

The Common denominator for Christianity is we are forgiven for being born, by faith through God’s grace. The Christian Authority the Pope and others have as Christians is to say you are forgiven for being born as many times as God Almighty wills eternally (you are forgiven your sins), instead of praying people to be forgiven for their actions and motions; especially when the main actions and motions they are talking about is the actions and motions before we were born. This blessing gets repeated through out our whole life until the day we are dead and buried. The Christian Doctrine gives the Pope and other Christians the right to preach for people to forgive their enemies not to say they are forgiven for doing bad things to you. It is up to the individuals to take upon themselves if they want to pray their enemies to be forgiven in detail. Nobody is accepted praying the people they are wrong first against to have to forgive them. Nobody is accepted praying the people that are wrong first allowed to pray the people they are wrong first against to have to forgive them. I can forgive one person at a time for one thought at a time and I can forgive one person at a time for one action or motion at a time, but the Disciple’s Christian Authority to say we are forgiven our sins is still just to forgive us for being born. Pope John Paul the Second said that we must not make a habit out of receiving the Eucharist in an unworthy manner, because the Church cannot help you repeat doing things against the law. Judaism Honor thy father and mother for being born with or without your father and mother being closely related and with or without your father and mother being straight. Christianity The Christian Authority is to say you are forgiven for being born (you are forgiven your sins); instead of praying people to be forgiven for their actions and motions; especially when the main sins they are talking about is the actions and motions before we were born. Islam The Islam Religion embracing grace and mercy for all that Honor thy father and mother for being born and for praying people to be forgiven for being born. Religious liberty The Religious liberty I believe we are all looking for is that whatever is written in the Torah, Bible and Qur'an cannot be law in the United States of America.

Well said, hollywood celebrities! Christians forgive others. We are saved by the grace of God and not through our actions.
