Christian and Naturist

Postby Marlin » Thu Jan 29, 2015 9:43 pm

I am new to the idea that Christian and naturist are not mutually exclusive. It is rather refreshing!

For me naturism was a big part of my eyes being opened to our freedom in Christ.

Hi Marlin,

Glad you've come to this conclusion. It's not really a new idea. Many of us have found that not only are they compatible, they're actually quite harmonious.

Welcome to the Village Marlin. Isn't it refreshing to discover your beliefs aren't in conflict? I hope you'll discover just how free and relaxing nudity can be. Hopefully you'll be able to enjoy naked freedom with other likeminded friends/family.

Welcome to our Village. :) Yes, it's a new thought to many, but it frees us from so much devilish garbage. 8)

Sorry, forgot to say Welcome from WYO. I am finding more and more that this is a wonderful group of people. We don't all agree on everything all the time, but we are bound together in Christ. It is often times when we don't agree that we help each other to understand our own beliefs, Iron sharpens Iron so to speak. new Ideas are some times difficult to fit in with our belief system, but stick around and we can help each other. He who walks with the wise becomes wise (I speak of the others). I hope that we can learn from each other

Welcome to the Village, Marlin. I have never had any fear that naturism was not compatible with being a Christian. One of my nephews told a man about me being a Christian and a nudist. The man replied, "He's a Christian, and he LIKES to be naked?"

To non-Christians, nudity and Christianity are not compatible, and they believe that nudity between men and women is always sexual. Christians simply believe that being nude for any reason other than to bathe, change clothes, or have sex is sinful.

Hi Marlin,
Welcome from one new comer to another. Being a naturist and a Christian is very compatible and gives you much greater freedom in thought and expression.
