Nudist Book Review of Nakedness and The Bible

Novel by: Ferndale: Amnity 2001.
The book “Nakedness and the Bible” doesn’t promise to be a defense of naturism; it just asserts to be an explanation of what the Bible says on either side of this dilemma. For some time, folks have used the Bible in an attempt to say that naturism is outside God’s law and shouldn’t be practiced by Christians. Various folks within the nudist movement have commended the publication including Like them, I add my approval to the work.
The author, Paul M. Bowman, mentions the report of what’s termed the drop of man, when Adam and Eve determined to willfully disobey God and sin. The one issue that I have with this novel is that’s does not address Adam and Eve as though were real people.
Since the Bible and its connection to nudity are being discussed here, we’re going to presume the Bible is a real file.
He deals with the way the nudity has been dealt with throughout the history of the church, yet the author writes that the anti-nudity message that the church has now been due to some result of the 400 years of an anti-sexual message.
When the Bible is analyzed for what it needs to say about the body a clear message is sent about it being pro-nudity, if it must be termed that, because nakedness was not an issue for them as it is for us now. They took baths in the river and ripped their clothes as an indication of grief; that was what they did. The conclusion that this writer accomplishes is that whenever nakedness is shown as sinful, another sin is present (that explains Noah, Lot, .).
In fact, the author even says that public nudity or nakedness is fine by God, due to the fact that God commanded Isaiah to go naked. (Isa 20:2) That entirely destroys the shame argument. God only mandated clothes for the priests while in the act of worship. (Exo 28:40-3).
What you can learn by reading the book is that we now have not many direct references to nakedness in the New Testament; Matthew 25 is one of them. Jesus is talking about having enough clothing to make that choice if to wear clothing. In Romans 8, verses 38-9, nakedness is located among other states of existence and the context is dealing with things that can divide us from the love of God.
The most fascinating portion of this book was where the author dealt with verses that Christians try to apply to nakedness like 1Thes 5:22, causing another to stumble and 1 Timothy 2:9.
Something that amazed me was when the author mentioned how clothes has been related to shame just as nudity continues to be commonly portrayed while giving numerous Bible verses to support his assertion. In the end, I find this book to be a fascinating read that lets naturists to help you to support their beliefs and remainder in the fact that we can give an answer for the hope that we’ve.
