Is it wrong to call a child a bastard?

Unless the child is technically a bastard, yes it is wrong. Even if the child is technically a bastard, it is immoral and un-Christian to apply the label. Understand that bastardy means that a child is born of an unwed mother. This used to connote a loss of legal rights to the child, but not to the mother. The object of the loss of these rights was to permanently punish the child for the mother's sin of fornication and for not being married on the day of the child's birth. It is immoral and un-Christian to blame a child for the sins of their parent.

What are the founding principles of the Lutheran denomination of Christianity?

Martin Luther found great resonance in a concept from the Bible he called "justification by grace through faith." In this concept, he came to believe that human beings are not saved (justified) by any actions that they can take to improve their standing in the eyes of God because humans are inherently imperfect and inherently sinful because we are born with original sin. Instead, Luther came to believe that human beings are saved by God's love for us (grace) through our faith in him and in Jesus Christ. There are other key principles of Lutheranism, but this concept is the philosophical and theological underpinning of Lutheranism (and most Protestantism).

Is a person a citizen of a country after they have left?

Most people are citizens of the country in which they were born. You continue to be a citizen even if you leave that country (sometimes, people living away from their home country are referred to as "expatriates" which causes some confusion about whether or not you have renounced your citizenship - the act of living overseas does not inherently change citizenship). I have lived in several different countries, but I am still a United States citizen.

Remember, that doesn't mean if you do 100 crunches a day for a year you will have a six pack, it requires reducing that layer of fat enough so you can see your abdominal muscles. Lowering your body fat is done by proper exercise and nutrition.
