Naked and Unashamed?

For years, I’ve erred on the side of modesty. Maybe we need a little nudity after all.

I’ve heard Christians say that if we still lived in the Garden of Eden, we would all be walking around naked. The story in Genesis 2 seems to support this idea.

It was only after that choice that they experienced shame. And so God, in a gracious and comforting indication of his ongoing love for them, clothes them even as he sends them out. Without sin, would everyone be naked all the time?
