Candace Cameron Bure, no stranger to her commenters' fiery Instagram remarks, found herself at the center of yet another debate—this time over swimsuits. 

"I got to do a little of this today! Gorgeous #SouthernCaliforniaafternoon! #socalliving #malibu#funinthesun Some bathingsuits are meant for public beaches and others for my own backyard. #KeepingItReal" Bure posted with a picture of three swimsuits: two one-pieces and one bikini.

Commenters quickly jumped into a modesty debate.  

"@candacecbure from one sister in Christ to another, modesty goes along way. What mean by that is this...if you want to wear those bathing suits in the privacy of your home, cool! We (the public) don't need to know about it though. That's private, girl. Plus you have men on this feed wanting to see you in these suits. While flattering, they are looking at you or fantasizing of you in a sexual way," One person posted. "As daughters of the Most High we have to be careful...wether in the public eye or not. Narrow is the way and there is a fine line. I cross it everyday, but I'm learning and doing my best. My prayer is that you see this as wisdom and NOT criticism. I can't imagine the difficulty of being a celebrity & christian.  As it's tough being a christian without the fame factor." 

Another posted: "Don't know who said, 'you wear a bikini'? I used to wear a two piece when I was younger until someone said, 'you might as well wear your bra and underwear in public' and brought me to my senses. I'm not judging her, that's just my opinion about two piece swim suits." 

Yet another commented: "As @candacecbure profess she is a Christian when u are married & living a Christian life a woman's body is for her husbands eyes only it is her temple the Lord uses ...I'm talking about d bikini more ...yes mrs bure it's in d scripture new testament to be exact but I'm not judging that is between her & God I was only asking a question." 

Others defended the star's suit choices.  

"Oh for goodness sakes... I'm a 51 year old Christian mom and gramma. Her bathing suits are not inappropriate, and she also stated some are for public and another for private. They are stylish and cute! Really like the colors in the palm tree one!" posted one fan.

Another posted: "Man, she can't win for losing with some of you people. She wears them in a pic...you're all over her, questioning her faith. She doesn't wear them in a pic...and you're still all over her. Seriously, get a life. The bikini...what if she wears that ONLY when she's with her husband. She's a female and wants to share her new finds with her fans. So, again...get a life of your own and quit trying to be a mom to an adult woman."
