My husband and I are liberal in connection with nudity. Is being a nudist sin? We regularly take nude photos of myself and have a “flickr” account where we post it. I must state that it’s for friend eyes only. Is it a sin and will it cause me to miss the rapture?
Please will you be so kind as to give me advice. Firstly thank you for your website and teaching it has helped me a lot.
Now to my problem. My husband and I are liberal in connection with nudity. Is being a nudist sin? We regularly take nude photos of myself and have a “flickr” account where we post it. I must state that it’s for friend eyes only. Is it a sin and will it cause me to miss the rapture? My friend has said that we cannot be born again if we do things like that. But me and my husband feel that we don’t do it to make others lust and we have no intentions of ever sleeping around. I must state that we are married for 16 years and I have never fooled around and have no desire of ever doing it. It’s just that we like having our own little space where we can do what seems nice to us. I don’t really know how to explain it. It’s just that we like being nude and being sexy. Is it wrong?
Another question, can it be true that we are not born again as I have previously said we really believe in Jesus and love Him. And will He punish us for doing so. I know we are not perfect and admit it. Please would you help and give advice please.
Q. There’s no specific prohibition against nudity in the Bible. But as you describe your activities, they don’t seem to fit the practice of nudity. Posting pictures of yourself for the express purpose of have others look at your nakedness is way different than just being a naturalist, it’s being an exhibitionist. And I don’t buy the idea that neither you nor your friends experience lustful thoughts. As you said, you feel sexy doing it and I imagine your friends have lustful thoughts looking at pictures of you. In Matt. 5:27-28 Jesus said that having lustful thoughts is as much a sin as committing adultery.
Being born again doesn’t mean we won’t sin anymore. Nor is our continued sinning a sign that we aren’t really saved, or keep us from the Rapture if we are.
But being born again does mean that we try not to willfully participate in any activity that would disappoint, embarrass, or offend the Lord. In 1 Cor. 7:15-20 Paul explained that sexual sins are especially serious because they’re sins committed with our body and the Lord dwells within us. He ended the passage by admonishing us to honor God with our bodies.
Since the Lord knew every sin of your life before He agreed to save you, your current behavior isn’t a surprise to Him, and it won’t cause Him to back out on His agreement. But I’m pretty sure it is an embarrassment to Him, and I think he’d be happier if you recognized it as a sin, asked His forgiveness, and stopped doing it. He would also bless you for pleasing Him this way.
