Why isn’t church one of the leading voices in the naturist crusade?
A main argument society spouts is that nudity =equals= sex. But naturists know that nudity and sex are separate things. I think the last thing on most people’s mind while attending service is sex or anything close to resembling the “desires of the flesh.”
We are supposedly made in God’s image. Why then, is it not sinful to cover up? Would it not reason that covering the image of God a blasphemy and any work done to destroy or distort His work would be considered working against God?
Finally, nudity is the great equalizer. When people are nude before each other, there are no signs to tell the business person from the lowest level employee. Those social barriers and classes break down at this fundamental level. God most likely sees it that way for human wealth is not of His concern. It is the character and spirit that all should seek. Spirit represented in the form of our humble humanity.
Go then! Go before your creator and show adoration for their work by not covering, not hiding it behind our petty wants and desires. Be equal among our fellow creatures and join together in a unified humanity working for the greater good of ourselves and the planet we live on.
