While sexuality seems to be taking over the world, some Christians are fighting against oversexualization in unconventional ways.

I know I am not the only one disturbed by the way that sex is taking over society. Once something has been sexualized it can be difficult to reclaim it, but some Christians are going to extreme measure to overcome modern perversity. Christian naturists declare their bodies to not be be sexual objects by abstaining from the wearing of clothing. They live in entirely naked communities, trying to restore innocence to the human body.

The naturist movement spans many denominations of Christianity, including anabaptists. In the 1500s, a group of nudist anabaptists ran through the streets of Amsterdam naked in an attempt to evangelize. Unfortunately, they were later killed for their streaking.
