Nudism or Naturism And The Bible

What does the Bible Say about Naturism, Naturism and Straightforward Nudity?
The Bible and Naturism – The Bible is a fantastic novel because it gives us examples of how to proceed or not. If it doesn’t give us examples of how to proceed or not, there are many principles which are pertinent to our situation. For the instance of nakedness, we’ve both examples and principles.
There are special examples of good nakedness (Gen 2:24, 1 Sam 19:24, Isa 20:1-3). In each of the preceding cases, the nakedness was either called great or controlled.
Those examples are neutral because the nudity there is only discovered. Nothing else, good or bad, is said about the fact they were nude.
Additionally there are cases of bad nakedness including David and Bathsheba (2 Sam 11), Noah (Genesis 9:20-7).
The reason that the two above instances display poor nakedness is because sin is involved: David lusted in his heart, while watching Bathsheba, and acted on that lust.
Noah was intoxicated and dishonored his dad by having homosexual relations with him. Scripture most definitely does reveal something like what we as naturists practice: Jesus with the disciples (John 13:8) and David dancing in the road at the return of the Ark of the Covenant (2 Sam 6:9-17).
The Bible And Naturism
Along with instances of nakedness, we now have principles involving our freedom as Christians, including Romans 14. In Christ, we’ve been granted much independence; we are not to use that freedom as a license to sin (Gal 5:13).
The most significant principle is that God has called our unclothed bodies great and it would be bad for us to say otherwise. (Isa 5:20)
In Genesis 3, (the Jewish Old Testament) the clothes that Adam and Eve wore was just for physical protection and for no other purpose. Their clothes would shield Adam and Eve from the thorns and thistles that God placed in the earth in v.18.
In the New Testament, we are ordered to give clothes to people who have . The distinction must be drawn between making a selection (naturism) and clothes the naked people. The individuals with whom we’re commanded to share clothes deficiency ability to make the choice. In Mark 7:20, Jesus said that it’s from the heart that our lustful, and other sinful thoughts, appear and not from outside sources.
In fact, Paul said, “these rules might seem shrewd because they demand strong devotion, humility, and severe bodily discipline. But they don’t have any effect in regards to seizing a man’s evil thoughts and desires” (Col 2:23). This implies that clothing does not have any effect as it pertains to dealing with our ideas.
In conclusion, God called the nude body good and clothes was just given to protect us against a cursed world. The Bible also says that we should thank God for what he’s given us; we do not have the power to call our bodies what He didn’t call them.
Originally, clothing was given to protect Adam and Eve from the real environment and the purpose of garments now is still to do this. Clothing doesn’t have the power to overcome our sinful lusts. Jesus Christ is the only person who can cope with our sin.
