Yes, lots of excuses, but excuses are just that, sort of like ppl saying, I wont go to hell, I have been pretty good most of my life. An excuse to get by without doing what God wants us to do, to make ourselves worthy of heaven.

And I have just sent a text to my husband and challenged him to do the same.
First off, this subject is very sensitive to me. I used to be a porn viewer, it was like a drug with me. I knew it was wrong, but I kept doing it anyway. It was like Michael Pearl said, “all boys, without exception, after viewer porn, will go back for more.” Thankfully, I overcame my addiction with the grace of God, but even so, to this day, I wish I had never viewed porn. This is where you come in. Being naked in public makes you a walking temptation. Many men are trying to remain pure—trying to avoid porn, but how can they avoid temptation when it is walking right in front of them? In doing this, you are feeding the lusts of men, you are starting innocent children and teens down the path of perverted sex—from masturbation to porn to sex to violence and rape. You are promoting sex trafficking and encouraging every sex related evil in this world. Don’t say I don’t know what I’m talking about. Ask anyone who was/is addicted to porn, and they can tell you. There are men and women, boy and girls out there that need help on this subject. They need OUR help. The help of anyone who can help them; but you are only making it worse. They don’t need us to say, “That empty feeling on the inside, that’s normal. That thing that is robbing you of everything that makes you human, everything that makes you special, that is okay.” It is NOT okay. Porn injured me, and it would have beat my soul to a pulp, robbing me of every natural affection. You, and every other human on the face of this planet, are human beings—precious and full of purpose—not a sex object. So STOP feeding the lusts of men, STOP making innocent children become malicious rapers, STOP supporting human trafficking, and stop making men view women as sex toys. It is NOT okay.

what he said...and I, unfortunately went down the same road. To the other person....if you would "push" your love for Jesus and all the things he asks us to do to serve and love him.....think how better off life would be for yourself.

Your infatuation with the naked body is obviously something you put higher than loving your God. That is a sin....sure you enjoy it and thrive on the idea, but have you ever thought what Jesus acts you to do? If it was such a great idea wouldn't the rest of the world do it?

Honestly, nothing I say or do is gonna convince you other wise. The change is gonna have to come from within yourself.

It seems that the Christian Church has an even more negative reaction to nudity than society as a whole and we would argue that the use of clothing hide the human body because of shame is even non-Biblical. Clothing to protect the body is understandable and useful of course. Over the years we (and our family) have been on hundreds of clothing optional and nude beaches, parks and resort, my husband and myself have been even naked in public situations and it seems like the people who are walking by (repeatedly), staring and taking pictures are the people that are wearing the clothes. Somehow, I think they are the ones that are making the most negative comments as well.
Like I said, we are experienced nudist and are interested in getting the thoughts of others on here and we are more than willing to answer any questions that you may have to more enlighten everyone on the nudist lifestyle and how it might relate to our Christian life and brothers and sisters. BTW, one question that I will answer because people always think that nudist are swingers and that is NOT the case. Anyway, please be safe and health out there and hope to hear what you have to say.
It has nothing to do with shame. It has everything to do with the lust of the flesh. The human body was created good and beautiful by God. But the human body is also sacred because it was created in the image of God and is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, the human body should never be viewed as an object to be toyed with, and it should never be viewed with lust. When Adam and Eve was created, they were naked because there was no lust in them. After eating the forbidden fruit, they had lust in them, which is why they covered their nakedness. Since that time, people used clothes to protect the human body because of its sacredness. The body should not be viewed with lust. Lust is viewing the person's body for self-gratification.

Hi guys. The OP is gone so I am going to close this thread tomorrow since the OP can not respond.
