a biblical Christian case for positive view of nudity
I was driven to re-examine the Bible to find out what God says regarding nudity. I asked myself questions like: Does God have a viewpoint on the naked body? Can a Christian look at nude art? Can a Christian take an art class and see and draw a live nude model? Can a Christian be a nude model for an art class? How come doctors seem to be allowed to view a nude body – does a medical degree give them that ability from God? Is nudity found in movies right or wrong? Movies like “Schindler’s List” have nudity, is this OK? How about nudity in the family, at what age does God say a parent should cover up around their child? Should they cover up? Does God have an opinion on siblings bathing together? What about innocent “skinny dipping?” On and on the questions flooded my mind. I had to discover if God’s Word had any guidelines for me.
What I discovered was there is such a thing as good nudity. An examination of the Bible shows that God created our bodies and that His creation was good.
