Jesus Is The Cure For Nudity
By David J. Stewart
“...Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.” —John 21:7
I was reading the Bible the other day and a thought occurred to me as I read this Scripture. Peter didn't have a problem being naked around the other disciples; but he immediately went to put his clothes on when he saw Jesus. So much can be said about this passage of Scripture. The world needs Jesus, so they'll put their clothes back on!
Peter strayed from the Lord in his discouragement. Jesus had been crucified and Peter quit the ministry to go back fishing. He also went back into sin and took his clothes off. This is what happens when Christians wander away from the Lord—the clothes start coming off!
This is why country singer, Faith Hill, who testifies of having grown up in a good Christian home, has already posed twice in Playboy magazine! Despite her claim of being spiritual, Faith Hill needs to find Jesus. Do you think Jesus would look at a Playboy magazine? Do you think Jesus, who condemned lust in Matthew 5:28, would approve of Faith Hill posing sensually in a dirty pornographic magazine? Of course NOT!
It's just a fact, nudity and heathendom go together. When a lost sinner believes upon the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive his sins, a change takes place in that person's heart, and the Holy Spirit comes to live within that soul (Romans 8:9). As a believer grows in the Lord, and draws nearer to God, the clothes go back on! Peter didn't even have to think twice ... when he heard that the Lord was present, he put his clothes back on! What a needful lesson for Christians today.
Adam and Eve
I recall a related Scripture back in Genesis 3:7 ... “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” Adam and Eve were convicted about their nakedness. Biblically, public nudity is a SIN. It is evil
The serpent said that Adam and Eve would become “as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:5) and that's exactly what happened. When they sinned by partaking of the forbidden fruit, the eyes of their understanding were opened and they became aware of good and evil. They immediately went to hide, knowing that public nudity is evil. This is Biblical evidence that nudity is a sin in public.
In beach destination places that attract tourists, like Florida, California and Hawaii, or any hotel that has a swimming pool, you're going to see nudity. The skimpy two-piece bathing suits that immodest women wear these days are totally useless, being paper-like. Some women even wear flesh colored bathing suits to make it look as though they're completely nude. Women wear white panties (bathing suits) that are completely see through, showing the separation in the buttocks. I mean, you can see through the underwear. These women are standing in line at the front desk and you're standing in line behind them, trying to maintain a clean mind. The only answer is PRAYER (Luke 22:40). Evil women enjoy seeing decent and godly man sweat, get nervous, have a hard time emotionally in the presence of a lewd woman without discretion; but their day of judgment is coming, they're damnation slumbereth not, they are already condemned by God for taking their clothes off in public.
Most women laugh and scorn at the teaching of modesty and appropriate clothing for women, but these are the same wicked fools who fornicate and end up in an abortion clinic, blaming God for their problems. Public nudity is a horrible sin, which causes lasciviousness. Whereas Adam and Eve respected God enough to run and hide in their public nakedness, idolatrous women today revel in it as a sport. Women take off their bras at the beach, deliberately wear transparent clothing, having no regard for morality. One of the most wicked businesses ever opened is HOOTER'S restaurant chain, featuring big-busted women in skin-tight, skimpy, t-shirts to seduce the customers. It is so evil. God curse America!!! Some men chuckle and act like it's good clean fun. God is not humored. Hooter's is wicked, far from God. I heard a man say that he only goes to Hooters for the spicy chicken-wings. I'll die before you find me in a HOOTERS.
It's a sport to them to cause lust and lasciviousness. Those business owners and women ought to be arrested for public indecency and put in prison. Americas have gotten so bad that women are without any discretion. Proverb 11:22, “As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.” You may not care, but God still does. Strippers, nudists and whorishly clothed women will be sorry on Judgment Day (Hebrews 9:27).
Here is a wonderful and interesting explanation of Genesis 3:7 by the great man of God, Dr. J. Vernon McGee:
"And the eyes of them both were opened"—this refers to their conscience. Before the fall, man did not have a conscience; he was innocent. Innocence is ignorance of evil. Man did not make conscience. It is an accuser that each one of us has living on the inside of us. A leading psychologist in a university in Southern California, who is a Christian, said to me that the guilt complex is as much a part of man as his right arm is. Man cannot get rid of that guilt complex in a psychological way.
"And they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons." Have you ever noticed that the fig tree is the only tree that is specifically mentioned? (The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is not an apple tree. I do not know what it was, but I am almost sure it was not an apple tree.) These fig leaves concealed but did not really cover. Adam and Eve did not confess; they just attempted to cover up their sin. They were not ready to admit their lost condition.
This is the same condition of man today in religion. He goes through exercises and rituals, he joins churches, and he becomes very religious. Have you ever noticed that Christ cursed the fig tree? That is quite interesting. And He denounced religion right after that, by the way; He denounced it with all His being because religion merely covers over sin.

Peter's nakedness was sinful, and he knew it, which is why he put his clothes back on when he saw the Lord.
Nudity Rooted in Idolatry
There's a very interesting passage of Scripture in the Old Testament which shows a commonality between nudity, sexual sins, idolatry, and rock-n-roll music. While Moses was standing upon Mount Sinai, receiving the Ten Commandments from God, God informed Moses of something tragic ... “And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people” (Exodus 32:7-9).
This is so appropriately descriptive of America and Europe today. We are a stiffnecked people!!! Carefully notice in Exodus 32:17 that Joshua tells Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.” Moses listens and responds in Verse 18 saying, “It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.” It was rock-n-roll music ... LOUD NOISE! Notice in Exodus 32:19,25... “And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot ... Moses saw that the people were naked.” This sounds like a morally reprehensible Mardi Gras festival.
The official symbol of Mardi Gras is even a golden calf (the fat bull). There is no debate concerning the evils of rock-n-roll, and it's power to promote nudity and fornication. Rock music is of the Devil (including all so-called "Christian" rock as well). You can go anywhere in this world you want to go, and you'll discover this to be true--anywhere there is sin, you WILL find some type of pagan music!
Male Gynecologists Are Evil
There's nothing any more wicked than a woman who chooses a male gynecologist. Oftentimes a woman does not have a choice of a male or female doctor when giving birth suddenly at the hospital, but a female doctor is Biblical and should be obtained in advance if possible. Albeit, a woman has 100% control over whether she sees a male gynecologist or not. Some men become gynecologists because they are perverts. One of the most common punch lines by men in the wicked world is “I should have been a gynecologist.” That's how sex pigs think. Any woman who allows another man to feel around her private area and look at her naked is committing evil. It is adultery of the heart. ...
What's Wrong with Male Gynecologists?
by Pastor Steven L. Anderson, 2006
1. Is nudity before the opposite gender a sin?
2. Are male obstetricians or gynecologists condoned in the Bible?
3. Are male gynecologists professionals or perverts?
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.” – Ephesians 5:11, 12
“I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” – Revelation 3:18
“So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.” – Proverbs 6:29
1. Is nudity before the opposite gender a sin?
We are living in a day when the overwhelming majority of Christians and non-Christians alike believe in situational ethics. “The end justifies the means” seems to be the philosophy of today’s independent Baptist churches. God, on the other hand, has always been the God of moral absolutes.
Is nudity before the opposite gender a sin? Well if it is, then it must always be a sin, whether at an xxx theater, a swimming pool, or in a doctor’s office.
In the Bible, the only nakedness allowable between a man and a woman is between husband and wife. Genesis reads, “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” Within the confines of marriage nakedness is totally permissible. However, in Leviticus 18, God goes into great detail condemning nakedness between brother and sister, father and daughter, mother and son, aunt and nephew, uncle and niece, grandfather and granddaughter, and the list goes on and on.
God also admonishes us repeatedly throughout the Bible to be fully clothed. Nakedness in the Bible is associated with the word “shame.” One of the many examples of this association is found in Isaiah 47:3a, “Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen:” as well as in Revelation (above). Exodus 28:42 reads, “And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach.” God is commanding here for a man to wear pants or shorts that cover his entire thigh (down to the knee) in order not to be naked.
Isaiah 47:2-3 reads, “Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers. Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.” God shows us again here, in this case with a woman, that the thigh being uncovered is considered nakedness by God. Repeatedly throughout the New Testament, God commands women to be clothed in modest apparel because nakedness is undoubtedly a sin.
2. Are male obstetricians or gynecologists condoned in the Bible?
Given that nudity before a person of the opposite gender is a sin, why is it a commonly accepted practice among Baptists and others for a woman to be naked and examined by a male doctor? This most disgusting practice is totally unfounded in God’s word. OB/GYN's (doctors of pregnancy and women's health) are considered somehow immune from the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes. If God is so against nudity between members of the opposite gender, why would he allow a man called a doctor to examine a woman’s naked body throughout her pregnancy and up to the birth as if he were somehow immune from sin or God’s laws?
Throughout the Bible, women who are pregnant or giving birth are attended by “nurses” or “midwives.” Not one time in God’s word is there mention of a woman being examined nude by a man who is a medical professional. God intended women to assist other women with these types of medical issues. Women have been giving birth to children for the last 6,000 years without the aid of male doctors, and yet Christians today seem to think that a woman must expose herself to a male doctor in the name of medicine. This is totally ridiculous and contrary to God’s word.
Many have used the argument, “Oh, they’ve seen it so many times; it no longer affects them.” This is exactly the opposite of reality. Men who look at nudity and pornography for extended periods become more perverted, not less perverted. If the appetite for nudity is fed, the appetite increases not diminishes.
Others have used the argument, “Oh, my gynecologist is a nice elderly man. He isn’t thinking any dirty thoughts.” That old man was once a young man who decided to go to school to be an obstetrician/gynecologist in order to examine women in intimate areas. We have strained at the gnat of women giving birth with the help of experienced women or midwives, and we have swallowed the camel of godly, Christian women exposing themselves to a strange man in a doctor’s office. God help us!
Independent, fundamental Baptist preachers stand up in pulpits across America and breathe fire about mixed swimming, immodest clothing, nudity on television, dancing, mini-skirts, etc., as they should, but why don’t they have the morals or courage to condemn this practice which is more revealing and more wicked than any of the others mentioned?!
3. Are male gynecologists professionals or perverts?
Jeremiah 17:9 reads, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” What kind of a man would go into a profession of examining women’s private parts? Don’t tell me that he is not made of the same sinful flesh that every other man is made of. No man can look at pornographic images and not be affected. This is why God commands us repeatedly to set no wicked thing before our eyes.
Because of years and years of looking at and touching scores of women inappropriately, the male gynecologist no doubt has a seared conscience and a perverted mind (I will not go into detail of what goes on in the doctor’s office for decency’s sake, but any woman who has been there knows what I am referring to.). His view of women and the marital bed has certainly been warped by his indecent involvement with countless women.
May God help preachers in this generation to make the Bible their authority, not tradition, and call this ungodly practice what it really is – sin. Any doctor that looks upon and touches a woman’s private parts in his office “hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Sir, if you let your wife go to a male gynecologist, you need to get right with God.
Furthermore, beware of TSA butt-naked body scanners at the airports, which show a girl's and woman's private areas while being screened. The cameras are so sensitive that they can even photograph the sweat running down your back. TSA has been caught hiring pedophiles and sex perverts to run the TSA scanning machines. Are you next? Do you want another man groping your wife's breasts or admiring your wife's breasts on the TSA screen? Morality is a thing of the past in many people's minds, but God still cares.
The Demon-Possessed Maniac of Gadarenes
Luke 8:27 and 35, “And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs... Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.”
What a precious passage of Scripture! This afflicted man was possessed by devils, running around naked and living in the wild. The entire city knew he was insane. Yet the Bible says when he found Jesus, he came into his right mind and put his clothes back on. Amen! Jesus is the cure for insanity and nudity.
Millions of Americans go to psychologists, psychiatrists and religious leaders for help; but the Word of God says the afflicted man at Gadarenes came into his RIGHT MIND when he found Jesus. It is interesting that being in one's “right mind” is associated with being properly clothed. Americans have a problem keeping their clothes on because they AREN'T in their right minds, they are mentally-ill. This is clearly evidenced by the fact that nearly half of the women in America have murdered a child by abortion. Only a mentally-ill person would deliberately kill a precious child. So it doesn't surprise me in a rotten society that devours it's own children that they would also have a problem with nudity.
The Cure for Nudity is Jesus!
Any child knows that women wears dresses and men wear pants. Women who love and respect the Lord won't wear bikinis at the beach, or wear miniskirts, or wear pants, or pose in Playboy. There's not an honest normal man alive who doesn't know what's wrong with women wearing pants—they are extremely revealing of a woman's flesh.
We are living in evil times, when unrepentant sinners are trying to justify every sin imaginable with the Bible. I heard a woman on the news, a professional pornographic model, claim that God approved of her vile career. She said that God created Adam and Eve naked, so nudity must be ok. Evidently she's never read Genesis 3:7 or 1st Timothy 2:9.
Here's a Scripture for all you women who keep trying to justify your nudity and immodest clothing ... “Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?” (Malachi 2:17). Beyonce Knowles claims to be a devout Christian; yet says she has permission from God to wear sexy clothes and strip on stage. She is woefully wrong! Beyonce needs to see Jesus.

The Darkness of Their
God knows what we watch on TV. It's just as bad to watch adultery on TV as it would be for us to be in same room with them. The TV has a desensitizing effect on its viewers. Sin is not shocking anymore but rather becomes commonplace (no big deal). This is why many people have become lackadaisical and acceptant of the wicked sin of homosexuality. The following reads like a synopsis of hellivision and unholy-wood:
Romans 1:28-32 -"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:"
Verse 32 describes TV perfectly, i.e., a window which allows people to have pleasure in the sins of others:
"Who KNOWING the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN THEM THAT DO THEM."
