God made Adam and Eve naked, and didn't want them to be ashamed of their bodies, so it doesn't make sense that most 'christians' dislike nudity, amirite?

Um, when sin entered the world, nudity became a temptation.

I totally agree with Rocky. That was part of mans' punishment for sinning, Adam and Eve became ashamed of their whole bodies showing.

Read Genesis 3, in verse 7 it talks about how when they realized they were naked they covered themselves up, when before they had no problem with being naked.

And yes, the punishment was when they were exiled from the garden, but that was where it started.

@Gabby And yes, the punishment was when they were exiled from the garden, but that was where it started.

they knew they were naked i.e. came from the act of sinning, the knowledge is not the punishment as you state, that is your interpretation, you have added that to the clear text. leave the text as simply as it is stated in verse 7, in addition to "knowing they were naked" they "knew they had sinned", knowing you are naked and knowing you sinned is not sin... and knowing both those things is not punishment... keep reading to see what the punishment is... and like i said... be very very careful about "adding to" the Word with any interpretation... you are on very thin ice... you may want to reread the warnings about what happens when you do this

Once they ate the forbidden fruit, they became ashamed by their nudity and covered up. God made them naked and unashamed.

Right. That's how they were made in the beginning. I'm not trying to change anything either. But you can't take everyhting in the Bible so literally. WHen God said he loved the world in John 3:16, He didn't mean He just loved the land and the water. He meant that He loved the people on the earth.

the original Greek conveys the right meaning, you would not say land and water... don't assume 20th century english by interpretation has a lock on it

You take everything I say so literally. I'm fluent in Greek and I go to a Greek Orthodox Church. I know what the correct translation is, but if you go by that, then basically the whole Bible was written wrong, because a lot of Greek words have meanings that cannot be translated by using english vocabulary.

well if what you say is true then you would understand that the Greek of the apostolic scriptures is actually a hybrid that would better be called Jewish Greek and the best way to fully understand that is through context with the septuagent and the original Hebrew writings...and yes you can understand it within context and may take explanations in engish to convey all though but yes it can be done and not just literally

i don't mind nudity

True... the "act of sin" the desire to choose to live by the knowledge of good and evil instead of to live by the Tree Of Life, gave them that knowledge of their nakedness due to their newfound rules to live by

I believe in God, but I find it annoying how most christians take cetain parts of the bible to follow and disregard parts they don't like. But at the same time they keep saying how they follow the bible.

well said becks... my point exactly... Christians "add to" or "subtract from" to push their own ideas and agendas...wittingly or unwittingly... well meaning or not... that is what Yeshua basically hit the religious leaders of his day on... it's the same today

I think that it's only a sin if it takes our eyes off of God. I don't think nudity does this per se.
