The Rapture: will we be clothed or naked?
Greetings! I'm reasonably certain that the concept of being naked doesn't really apply to heaven. We will be given a brand new body (ie. scrap the old one). Applicable verses are:
1 Corinthians 15:42-44, 49-50, 52-55
It makes sense, really. By the time we're dead, our bodies will be in a non-functional state (otherwise, we wouldn't be dead...). In heaven we will live forever, so we will need new bodies that are better than these (incorruptible, impenetrable, etc.) to support that endeavor. Hopefully that makes sense. Peace!
The good Lord gave you a beautiful body that you should never ever EVER reveal to anyone except the one you marry and procreate with.
God is able to see right through your clothes to your naked self, however he would certainly NOT do that for modesty sake.
Earthly clothes will be left behind, but there are garments in heaven given to the saints. I've researched heaven and what its like for over a year for a book I'm writing. I've read over 100 testimonies from all different ages and cultures and times and not one person mentioned people in heaven being naked. :-)
The movie portrays people leaving their clothes behind. I believe that is the way it's going to be except we are going to get new clothes once we step into heaven.
We will be glorified and I don't think it will matter if we are clothed or not. Our eyes will only see the Glory of our risen king as he calls us home.
this is one of the most hilarious questions i have encountered so far in relationship with the religious minded.
It certainly depicts my views on the nonsensical teachings of religions. These silly and useless quotes from the bible are amusing at best, and frightening at worst when people take them literally.
The beauty of the human body is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but when exploited to sell one's wares, it is doing so inappropriately and denigrating that beauty.
There is no shame in nakedness, only in the minds of those who think so. This silly notion is a direct result of the teachings of the fairytale existence of the garden of eden in christianity, and its equivalent in other cults.
PS, i love the picture at the bottom of the hand holding that big 'banana'. L.O.L.
This is about the most ludicrous question, and one of the best examples, I've seen or heard that explains why the Church is becoming a laughing stock world-wide. Does anyone really think the souls we're trying to reach will be impressed by the depths of our Biblical understanding after reading this?
I shudder to imagine how God looks on this kind of "discussion" of epic proportions. Really...let's spend our time looking for His presence. It will take us a lot farther than this.
Neither. The flesh will remain as our souls ascend to Heaven with Jesus Christ.
since the rapture story is an unscriptural lie , this is a moot question

Are you comfortable with nakedness?Nakedness is not for everyone. Are you comfortable with your naked body?

I don't think I've ever had this discussion before and I'm just curious if there is any common thought on this.

Well yesterday was a very interesting day. I was having lunch in a restaurant with my friend and as we chatted away, a naked man walked into the restaurant and ordered his meal. Of course people were looking but nobody dared asked him anything or confront him as he was a big fella, about 6'11 with...

The Rapture has already happened & you are left behind in purgatory limbo - fighting the risen dead(zombies) and the only escape into heaven is to sacrifice yourself for another - would you die for a stranger to go to heaven - or be too scared to be be turned into a zombie to only help yourself?

Why do most who profess Christianity believe the rapture LIE instead of scripture?The scriptures say "as it was in the day of Noah, when the flood came and took away the UNbelievers" and there are a great many scriptures proving that the believers are to inherit...
