Elizabeth Taylor: Her Thoughts on Faith

As many are mourning the loss of screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, now is a good time to celebrate her life by looking at her thoughts on faith and spirituality. Her son has released a statement that has said the following:“Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. …. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.”

But the website Faith & Reason has also done a fantastic job of compiling quotes in which Taylor has commented on her thoughts about God. It seems Taylor was raised a Christian Scientist but converted to the Jewish faith later on for marital reasons. But regardless of  her particular religious affiliation she was quoted on more than one occasion as saying she did believe in a Higher Power, largely because of her time with Alcoholics Anonymous to battle her addictions.

I know I will remember Taylor for her tireless charity work on behalf of AIDS. even more than I will remember her for her films.

How will you remember Taylor’s generous, inspiring legacy ?

    Yes, I think brave is a good word to describe her. I never saw her try to make herself into something she was not. As she matured, so did her roles, and so did her life. She will be well remembered for her acting, and humanitarian acts.

    She changed into the great woman she was after her experience at Betty Ford. And she died with the ability to claim what she worked so hard for.

    Elizabeth Taylor was a great actress.

    That said, I believe that a lot of the roles she chose are a factor of the moral degradation of this country in that since she was a great actor she was looked up to and her actions followed. I believe she shirked her moral responsibility and led a lot of young people toward a path of self destruction, i.e., unwanted pregnancies, social diseases, abortions….lifetime scars….that same path that led her to be married seven times.

    She was beautiful and worshiped and she led a sad and lonely life.

    I was very thankful to hear Elizabeth Taylor state, in an interview why she enjoyed diamonds and lovely jewels. Her answer was, “God made all of these beautiful stones.” To read more about beautiful stones, readers should consider the last two chapters in the Bible about the everlasting home of all of God’s family, the Holy City, New Jerusalem. This is a literal city of God. My son and I are now writing a book about it. Do not let any so-called theologian tell you otherwise. The New Jerusalem does truly exist and will someday be placed by God on Earth. Elizabeth, I truly do hope to see you there.

    Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had such attraction to each other that is why their movies were so sensual. She had the most beautiful blue eyes in the world. I remember when she was heavy the press was relentless with her. She got herself fixed up very nicely and had a healthier lifestyle for all that she physically had wrong with her she still kept her head up and I dont ever remembering her walking on eggshells to appease anyone. She has paid the supreme price for this life and is now walking the other side with so many relatives and dear friends, I hope she is in heaven and happy.

    I would like to comment on what was said by Maize everyone has their own opinion about things but to say that one person is to blame for all that is not fair, first it begins at home and somewhere down the road in so many ways we have failed our youth in teaching them moral values and to know how to love and we have no right to judge anyone about anything when it comes right down to it only god knows the heart of course we show a glimpse of the heart in what we speak and how we act but when it comes to being judge there is only one and at this time her family is hurting let’s show compassion she’s not here to speak for herself and she is the hands of an all mighty god. Lord bless you
