Ditch The 'Naked' Look

The ‘naked’ look continues to make the Internet and media rounds, on both sides of the Atlantic. Sadly, many of the participants in the voluntary removal of their clothing have been women--and some of them reportedly are ‘in’ church.

Whether in music videos, fundraising calendars, parodies on Instagram or postings on You Tube, women who remove their clothing in order to ‘make a point’ with public nudity are ‘setting themselves up’ for long-term embarrassment. If they are identifying themselves as Christian women, they are going against clear, biblical teaching in order to ‘raise’ a few eyebrows.

Those who engage in such behavior are not only engaging in self-worship (a.k.a. Idolatry) but are calling attention to themselves in a sinful manner. Even attempting to do something with a ‘right’ motive that involves ‘wrong’ methods is sin in the eyes of God.

Let’s look at the economic impact for a moment. More than a few professional women have been forced to resign from prominent positions because a few enterprising young people have ‘dug up’ their romps without clothing and displayed them for the world to see. Next, there is the family impact. What child--or spouse--for that matter, wants to see nude photos of their mother or wife on social media, with a shelf life of ‘forever’?

As far as a social impact, we can turn the Scriptures. First, one who ‘volunteers’ to appear in public without their clothing is engaging in evil behavior, which is something that Christians are to avoid at all cost ( I Thessalonians 5:22 ). Next, one who tries to make merchandise of others by calling attention to themselves via nudity to sell an album or ‘save’ a public building are at risk of causing members of the opposite sex to ‘stumble’ in their spiritual progress (Romans 14:15, 21). Lastly, public nudity stirs up passions in young people who are in a very vulnerable and impressionable time in their lives (Genesis 39:7-12).

Ladies, bake sales, raffles, and garage sales are a great way to raise funds. Removing one’s clothing in public--regardless of the motive--is never a good idea. If one truly follows Jesus Christ, loving their neighbor as themselves does not mean exploiting your neighbor in thought, action, or deed. A word to the wise.
