Is Nudism a Religion?

Many wonder why I'm a nudist, a Christian Nudist at that! (And some just don't care)

In reality, I'm a nudist, not because of some religious dogma, but from a lack of it. Simply put, I just don't like to wear clothing.

So why are we making a "religion" out of it? We aren't. All we are doing is answering the religious zealots who insist on making a religion out of wearing clothing. So we have to drag religion into it to make sense out of it. To answer their condemning questions.

To help you out a bit, below is an excellent article called Acceptance by someone who is not a nudist, and who is not promoting nudism, but who does know I am a nudist (I told him when we were talking at a meeting one time) and found it very "interesting".

This Acceptance is about God willing to accept the reality of what happened in the garden of Eden and though does not approve of their broken ideas, accept that reality and work from that point forward. It helps explain our understanding of why humanity wears clothes even though God never made that a command.

I hope to hear some comments from here and there as well.

  1. I see no contradiction between Christian teaching and naturism, nor did Pope John Paul II:
    "The human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendor and its beauty... Nakedness as such is not to be equated with physical shamelessness... Immodesty is present only when nakedness plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person...The human body is not in itself shameful... Shamelessness (just like shame and modesty) is a function of the interior of a person."

    Here in the UK we have a society of Christian Naturists.

    However, naturism is not a religion, it is a lifestyle.

  3. boy labyog, that may very well be your problem, evil thoughts. Why is being nude, which is how we were created by God in the first place, and we are still be created that way (see new born baby) and God never in his Word said that nudity is an evil thought? In fact, did you know that the bible says that our tongues are the most evil part of our body? Yet we don't stop using it, we don't hide it, in fact, it's one of the more used part of our body!

    An evil thought is only a thought. It may or may not be factual. But your thoughts affect you and how you act. So if you think a nude body is evil, then you will always have problems with your own body. Rather an unhealthy relationship when your mind and spirit hates and fears the body it is in.

  4. In reference to the tongue, see James 3:4-8
