The gap between nude Christians and textile Christians

There is also another gap that I share with the Christian voice of nudism. The gap between nude Christians and textile Christians is so bad that there cannot be any communication between the two. About 99 percent of all Christians are textiles, who are prejudiced against nudism. The prejudice boils down to the bigoted view that nudity = sex. In truth, nudity does NOT = sex.

I dare not mention to my fellow parishioners that I am a nudist. The nudist could be ostricized in his church. There are cases where the church's view is that a nudist can join the church; however he/she cannot hold any leadership position in the church. This has caused cases where the nudist was stripped of all leadership positions. This prejudice exists not only in the Fundamentalist churches, but also in the more liberal mainline denominations.

There is nothing in the bible saying "Thou shalt not be nude." In fact, I can feel close to Christ in the nude. To enjoy the sun and breeze on your bare skin can be worshipful, as praise.

RE: The gap between nude Christians and textile Christians

Old Scratch cannot divide the Church if it is solidly founded on the Word of God. However, he need not do that. His greatest success is creating dissension and isolation based on flawed interpretations of Scripture and man's invented doctrines and teachings. The Gospel unites the Body of Christ. The man-made rules tear it apart.

IMO, denominationalism is Satan's greatest triumph. And he has been at it since biblical times, q.v.:

1 Cor 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

The efficacy of the Church has been essentially neutralized by denominationalism resulting in the Body of Christ on the floor writhing and thrashing as its many parts seek to go their own ways, fighting each other and deceiving themselves that they are the only real Church. The devil is on his throne laughing his evil butt off about the success of his divide-and-conquer strategy.

We nudists will never be accepted as long as the churches refuse to divest themselves of their erroneous interpretations and unbiblical doctrines. It's sad that we will be sharing heaven with billions of believers who denied themselves the joy and elation of standing before God as He created us, without spitting in His face by telling Him that his greatest creation is indecent, obscene or evil and must be concealed by artificial skins.

At the Throne of Glory, it won't matter, because We'll be in His presence clothed only with His glorious light. Here on sinful Earth, His children deceive themselves that their bodies are objects of shame and contempt, and that God only accepts us when we are encased in a false shell of "modesty".

Heb 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

God sees us as we are. Underwear and shirts and pants and skirts don't impress Him one iota.

IMO, far too often, "Christians" are just the vehicles by which clothing goes to church.

No intention to divide the church.

RE: The gap between nude Christians and textile Christians

The Head Demon has that intention, and he is wildly successful. The split between Christan nudists and Christian clothists is based on erroneous interpretations of Scripture, and a fundamental ignorance of the history and culture of the civilizations of Biblical times. Non-sexual nudity was common in those days, despite the occasionally negative implications associated with nakedness in the Scripture.

Peace in Christ, Sam

RE: The gap between nude Christians and textile Christians

Greetings to all.

This is my first post here in this group, so I will first say, hello. I am glad, and thank the Lord that we are afforded a place here to freely discuss our concerns among like minded people, and share the joy of knowing our Creator, and savior.

I personally, have not experienced quite the same level of resentment from my fellow pew dwellers about my love of nude activities that some here describe. Sure, there has been a few nervous chuckles, and even a couple of over-reactions several years ago, but for the most part it has been a non-issue.

To be clear, we did not exactly make any public announcements in the church bulletin, or give a detailed testimony of our witnessing efforts among the nudist community. We did, however, make it known in passive conversations that we did not usually wear clothes at home, and went skinny dipping in our pool regularly. Most we talked to gave their approval, especially when we laid to rest any any thoughts of impropriety.

I cannot assure you the same success we experienced, but hiding in a closet of fear is not what the Lord calls us to. To be sure there are risks, just as there are rewards. And the Lord has rewaded us for our openness and honesty. We now openly live full time as a nudist family, serving our Lord. All of our family and friends know all about us--so there is no cat to let out of the bag. The reward is true peace, and inner strength that comes from our Lord.

RE: The gap between nude Christians and textile Christians

There is sadly to say a great deal of truth to what you are saying catbird. However
we have spent the better part of the last 20 years in the missions fields of the
third world. The facts exist that many needy people in the uttermost parts of
the world where few Church goers will ever see have many needs, to many clothing
is not even on there lists.

We often gathered with other missionaries during times of furloughs here in
the states, many missionaries coming from hot tropical climates admit that
nudity of peoples living in many parts of the world with warm climate places see
nudity as commonplace. Nudity is not a salvation issue, and others agree and
accept nudity much like they do seeing Africans natives like we see on National
Geographic.

The missionaries who actually go the distance to serve in the missions fields
are elevated and praised when they come back with reports of thousands coming
forward getting saved and for the most part being baptized, and many in the
nude. Most of these Church sponsored missionaries are well commended for their
work in the uttermost parts of the world dealing with naked people on a daily
basis.

These same Church member admirers of those who go to the uttermost parts of
the world (i.e. places no one else cares to go) also agree we have a mission
field here in our own country, as many peoples from around the world come to
America from most all those uttermost parts of the world, thus they make efforts
to make missions that can have outreaches to these same cultures of people right
here in America.

However the mainstream Churches fail to realize the need for missionaries who
will witness to people who embrace the nude cultures, as missionaries who go to
places with nudist venues are as rare as the missionaries who go to the darkest
corners of the world. Scripture states in 2Tm:3:12: Yea, and all that will live
godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. The evidence is un refutable
that missionaries who witness in nudist
environments suffer persecutions especially by there fellow Christian brothers.

Keep the faith and do your mission work
with the nudists, your reward in heaven will be greater than any of those with
important positions in the hypocritical Churches misguided in these latter days.
Just remember where did Jesus go when he was on this earth? Jesus had to be
betrayed by a kiss in order to point him out in a crowed, He purposely went to
the places other self righteous people would degrade and fail to reach out to.
In fact if you are not being persecuted daily you better start worrying, because
if you are not butting head to head against the devil everyday, it may well be
you might just be walking right along beside him.
