question: what is biblical view of nakedness being clothes free?

What is Naked?

Listen to God and his pure language of love. There is no “naked” in God’s love language. For we are not without! God called on Adam and Eve when he walked in the garden in the cool of the day. What a beautiful scene! That was not an angry God coming for vengeance for a divine rule that was broken! God, taking a nice walk in the cool of the day calling out for his children to come visit him and talk to him! Again, what a beautiful scene! What do you think God would have done had Adam and Eve come out still starkers, totally naked? I’m sure the same thing he did before when he left them there naked in the first place! For he never said they were naked! Again, was that even in his language? Naked, without, lacking, incomplete, unfinished, not whole, missing something. Like telling an artist he missed a spot on his beautiful painting. Was that how God left them? And God saw the work that he had done and said it was very good. Gen. 1:31 and Gen 2:1 says “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them”. Finished, complete, whole, satisfying, a wonder to look at, free of missing spots.
