Teen actress Chloë Grace Moretz has a issued a powerful message to Kim Kardashian, urging the 35-year-old reality star to be a better role model to the millions of young girls looking up to her.

On Monday, Kardashian, who is a mother of two young children, posted a naked selfie to social media along with the caption, "When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL."

A few hours after the image went viral, Moretz, star of "Carrie" and "If I Stay," tweeted directly to the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star, urging her to think carefully before posting inappropriate images to social media.

"I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies," she wrote.

However, Kardashian refused to back down, sarcastically responding to the 19-year-old: "Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo."

She later posted another nude selfie along with the caption, "Liberated."

After hundreds of people joined in bashing the young actress, accusing her of "slut shaming" the reality star, Moretz responded with a message about respecting the platforms that celebrities are given.

"There's a huge difference in respecting the platform that you're given as a celebrity and 'slut shaming,' something I never have done and would never do," the actress wrote.

Kardashian also had some harsh words for actress Bette Midler, who had stated, "If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera."

The reality star mocked the 70-year-old two-time Oscar nominee, tweeting, "Hey @BetteMidler I know it's past your bedtime but if you're still up and reading this send nudes #justkidding."

She followed that up with a picture of a candy heart with the words "send nudes" written across it.

The Bible clearly states,"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." (1st Corinthians 6:19-20).

However, Moretz is not the only young celebrity to be publicly mocked for her Biblical views regarding modesty. As reported by The Gospel Herald, Ayesha Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, sparked a major debate after sharing her thoughts on today's modesty standards -- or lack thereof.

On Dec. 5, the 28-year-old mother-of-two took to Twitter to write, "Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters."

In a follow-tweet, Curry, an outspoken Christian, wrote, "Just looking at the latest fashion trends. I'll take classy over trendy any day of the week. #saturdaynightinsight."

Her thoughts didn't sit well with some, who accused Curry of online "shaming" and tearing other women down. "Sounds as if Ayesha Curry thinks her body/other women's bodies are like consumer goods marketed exclusively for use by men, or something," wrote one woman.

Similarly, "Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson came under fire in 2014 for "pushing the Christian agenda" after revealing she chose "Daddy-approved" outfits while competing on "Dancing with the Stars."

"We have full say in what we wear. So any time you see anybody wearing something on the show, that is what they picked to wear," she told TV Guide. "And for me, not only does my dad want me to dress modestly, I do too. And so, (DWTS parter Mark Ballas) has been great with that, and really understanding our concern and our faith, because he's also a Christian."

She also encouraged fans to respect their bodies in a podcast message called "Modest is Hottest" back in 2013: "If you respect your body enough to put modest clothes on, then more people will respect you as a person," Robertson said.

The now 18-year-old actress and model said she believes that modesty is often misunderstood in our culture - "people think [that] if you're modest then you're not cool or something, but that's not true," she said.
