Nakedness: The Argument Against and the Plea For

Updated on July 14, 2016

Nakedness

First let us clarify a point. I am irritated with the news. The latest not being of nakedness, but of a mother kissing her child and people getting all huffy about it.


A Reminder

God doesn't seem to care that people are naked. In fact, we are naked for the first nine months of our life, while God has us in a puddle of warmness.

If we are a twin, we share that naked space with another person. Also naked.

Born Naked

We are born naked.

We are not born with clothes on. We are born without clothes. That is the way it is. Until someone figures out how to change things, that's just how it's going to be.

Period.

Clothing

Clothing is man made. Some person decided that they needed to be covered.

God did not make that decision. A person made that decision.


God Intended Naked

He intended naked to be the way, but somebody did not listen to God.

Someone broke a rule. They ate something that they shouldn't.

Fact of the matter is, Adam KNEW that he couldn't eat the apple way before Eve was ever around. He could have said NO. But, he did not say no.

He didn't even argue. Can you picture that? Eve was misled and Adam let her be misled. He could have corrected the situation when he had the opportunity, but he chose not to.

He CHOSE not to.

Eve

Eve was misled and Adam let her take the blame. She told the truth about the snake telling her the facts of the matter concerning the fruit, but Adam chose to let her take the fall. He should have stuck up for his new friend. He should not have believed that she could do something wrong and should have defended her.

But he did not.

He was too concerned with making himself look good. He was too concerned with staying out of trouble. He was not a man of integrity.

Eating the Apple

God told Adam and Eve that they should not eat of the apple since they would die if they ate of it.

Well, that part of the story proved to be true, since he made Adam and Eve leave the Garden of Eden and they grew old and died.

Just because of that apple.

Foods that People Avoid

I have seen men getting in full blown arguments with a waitress over what food at a buffet contained pork.

Most of them.

I also know that this place caught on fire, not long after those men were asking her questions.

Coincidence? Probably, but when you hear the news on a daily basis, it's not so easy to not see some problems.

Apples and Pork

Many people will avoid pork like it's the plague, but will eat an apple like nobody's business.

Is there a reason for this?

If you are going to avoid pork, shouldn't you avoid apples, too? And, with all the companies having recalls on vegetables and flour products and fruits, shouldn't you be a little concerned?

What is left to eat? Some water? Nope. Not safe... full of lead. Pop? Diet Pop? Apparently not. Contains something that makes your body hungry.

So. We're back to wanting to eat food, but cannot.

What next!

      Adam was created in Genesis 2:7. In Genesis 2:17, Adam was told not to eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In Genesis 2:18, God decided that it was not good for man to be alone and took a rib from Adam. See the sequence. Eve was not around yet, when the original admonishment was made. She was created after that. So, Adam knew about it before Eve got talked into it.

      The shame of nakedness is of our own making.

      Great points!

      I'm not a Bible expert, so perhaps you can explain how Adam had advance knowledge about the forbidden fruit.
