The greatest victory in life is the victory over self
This article is in response to the Daily News article, "Camp fastest-growing place to grin, bare it," and "Nudism's effects on children mixed, experts say," published Sunday, September 29, 20002.
One of the experts said, "It's amazingly wholesome, and they work hard to keep it that way." It is hard to imagine an expert saying that. The Bible will stand above all experts on all subjects. Nudity is as old as man. In Gen. 2:25 Adam and Eve were naked and not ashamed before sin entered the world. In fact, they were alone at the time. Note however, in 3:7, the moment Adam committed the sin that brought sin into the world, "the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked."
Moral consciousness came with sin. Gen. 3:9-10 tells us God called Adam and asked "Where art thou?" to which in v10 Adam said, "I was afraid, because I was naked;"
Nakedness is a symbol of rebellion against God. (Exodus 32:1-28) Nakedness is a shame, as sin, and an abominable custom condemned by God. (Lev. 18:1-30)
Nakedness is compared to whoredoms, Ezek. 23:29, and provokes the sensual heart of man! (Gen 9:22-25) Please read this one! Ham saw the naked ness of his father and committed a perverted sexual act upon him.
Nakedness is accompanied by demonic activity, Luke 8:26-39, and mental derangement v.35. When the demoniac met Jesus, and the demons were cast out, he was found in his right mind and had clothed himself.
Nakedness is less than animal-like; even animals have clothes and God used them to cover Adam and Eve's nakedness, showing by it the man is Spiritually naked and can only be covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son. Gen. 3:21. In Rev. 3:17-18, nakedness is a type of sin and shame and clothing is a type of the righteousness of Christ which we receive when we receive Christ as Saviour. Thank God for the Lamb which was slain for the sins of the world! Are you covered with the Blood of Christ?
