I greet all the MH community in peace and love, and I sincerely hope that everyone is safe in this perilous time. And to those who have been affected by current events, I am keeping you in my prayers.
It is a blessing that while we may be stranded in our homes, kept from going to church and being able to fellowship together, we have a platform such as this to still keep in contact, worship the Lord, and talk about Him!
I wish to ask you all a question today that I have been musing on for quite a while, and I’d like to discuss it and see your thoughts.
As Christians, by definition, we are born again in the Holy Spirit of the Lord. Throughout the new life that God gives us through Jesus, the Holy Spirit guides us into holiness and renews our minds to what God originally intended for us. He reveals to us knowledge and love of the Father, which we would not have seen and known through our own merit.
Lately, I have seen some posts here where people have discussed nudity—particularly, nudity at home alone or with family and nudity in places such as a beach or nude resort. I’ve also seen these discussions elsewhere, and it is actually an old topic amongst Christians, with some denominations or churches adopting nudism as a way of life/fellowship, etc.
My question is this: is this gravitation towards nudism in the Christian community a result of our minds being renewed? God initially created us naked, and we were meant to live that way without shame. Jesus took our shame away; He restored that broken link between the Father and us. Is the shedding of clothes without shame a renewal of our minds?
I am always wary of making cut-and-dried statements about the Bible or the Father, which is why I like discussing things like this. I know the Holy Spirit has revealed other things to me before, and if this is the case, I am sure He will reveal the answer I seek. But I thought this worth discussing, as I know that many Christians ponder this.
Kind regards and love to you all,
