In a recent news article, some pastor proclaimed that the bible teaches nudity should be private and sacred by stating “That expression of being nude is to be confined to the relationship between a man and a woman in holy marriage … and that alone.” One of my own friends — a practicing Catholic — called it the “sin of immodesty.” I couldn’t find what either of them were talking about in any translation of any bible. In fact, the only possibly applicable reference I could find was Paul instructing women to dress modestly, but it further goes on to clarify that it means that women shouldn’t adorn their bodies with a ton of jewelry and other decorative crap that would make them look like bimbos. It has nothing to do with clothing, but rather pride and boasting.
