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 God confronted Adam and Eve about their tragic and rebellious decision to eat the fruit that they realized they were naked. 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?

Perhaps we should start a Christian nudist colony, in which we all claim our status as the ones who need not feel any shame before God because of the work Christ has done for us. Or perhaps we should look forward to walking around naked in heaven. My kids would certainly be excited about that prospect

One thought on “Naked and Unashamed?”

  1. I have to agree we as a christian nation are taught that the naked body needs to be hidden.I in my mature years have gotten more free with my body and nudism.I think for the most part people hide what they are.We are scared of what our family and friends will think of us.I read to many times of guys hiding their desire to go nude from there wife.I think it is sad.That grown men think they have to hide from the wife.I do put on shorts when people come over.I know most people don’t share my view on nudity.I say live and let live.
