My Struggles

Is nudism ok since I'm a Christian? I still have struggles. I am experiencing more acceptance and peace about being clothes free. The freedom is wonderful.

While a great number of people would say being Christian and nudist is contradictory there are those of us who look to Genisis where God said "it is good" and Adam and Eve were nude. The key factor, in my opinion, is why you are nude. If it is for sex, and sexual arousal then the naysayers are correct. But anyone that has ever been to a nudist gathering will tell you that there is nothing sexual involved and so nothing wrong with it.

A nudist Christian is about as legitimate as an evil Christian. Just sayin' ...

I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner.

Why would you say this? Have you studied God's word (the bible) about the subject of Christian being socially nude?

How exactly are 0rgy colonies compatible with the Christian command to "Flee from fornication"? (1 Corinthians 6:18)

I would recommend a good Christian naturist website called http://www.figleafforum.com/ for how the Bible deals with it.

God will not command someone to sin. With that in mind, look up Isaiah 20, there you will find the following:

Isaiah 20:2 "...the LORD spoke by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying,
“Go, and remove the sackcloth from your body, and take your
sandals off your feet.” And he did so, walking naked and barefoot."

I for one believe the bible to be God's word, meaning that it is true, and take it literal for what it says. If God can't and won't command someone to sin, then by telling Isaiah to remove his "sackcloth" and walk naked and barefoot for 3 years, then simple nudity, even public nudity isn't sin.

Now God also calls breaking laws sin, so in this matter, and in most places, public nudity is against the law, so as a Christian, I would have to limit my nudity to areas where I'm not breaking any local laws.

I hope this helps!

Remember from Genesis, it was not God that told Adam and Eve to cover up, they made the suits of fig leaves themselves. Remember also that their sin was not nudity, but disobedience to God relative to the tree--nothing to do with nudity. God is concerned with the contents of our hearts, not how we look on the outside. If you struggle being nude around others, then think twice about it, but if you are in the privacy of your own home, there is absolutely nothing contradictory with God about you being naked. Enjoy it, and thank God for the body He gave you just exactly as he gave it to you.

sure at home in private is fine...i walk nude in the house...
