continuing how nudity is compatible with Christianity

Postby christianhopeful » Sat Oct 08, 2016 11:23 pm

:D :D Good night everyone!! Christianhopeful here!! Or as you know me by my first name Greville!! I want to talk more about my experience that led me to Christian nudism (or naturism if you prefer that name). I grew up in my native Trinidad and Tobago raised in body ignorance. No one explained to me my body's natural functions and that bit was (&is) normal what I was going thru in my younger days. This ignorance led to my becoming obsessed with women's bodies, especially when they were NAKED. Because of this I resorted to self pleasuring (I hope I am allowed to say thus here), because I o not help myself. With an intense desire to see what was (& still is) considered wrong and lewd, I resorted to anyway I could see naked women by watching R rated movies (that I would watch when my folks were not home) and then later on to PORN which I watched with my older brothers. This obsession with seeing the naked body led to a heavy indulgence in porn. Even after I became a Christian, it became my one major weakness (still is unfortunately). It did not help when I migrated to the USA in my early teens. I discovered that Pornography was readily available and sold in the open( in Trinidad and Tobago, the distribution of porn is illegal and will earn you some jail time). I became totally addicted to porn for ALL 7 YEARS while residing n America. It was a huge struggle and I believed at the time there was no way out for me. That is until an African American friend of ours( I lived in the STATES with my mom) who introduced bus to N magazine. I browsed thru the magazine and found it interesting that ordinary people lived their lives totally NAKED and normal. That peaked my interest a little but being still under the body shame influence, I was convinced that this is SINFULNESS and felt very guilty about it( I was so ignorant that I told BMT mother at the time I was NOT comfortable being around a fully naked man when web used to visit him in his home in Philadelphia). But I believe GOD had a hand in this!! While skimming thru the N magazine, I came across an address for a group called "ALTOGETHER CHRISTIANS" based in TROY, VERMONT. Upon further checking, I realized that the founder/leader of this group was/is a blind ROMAN CATHOLIC layman named JIM C. CUNNINGHAM. My interest peaked. Thus gave me some hope that I could (& can) be a practicing nudist and serve GOD. How this happened I will share in another posting!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL and thanks for reading!!

Hey Greville, thanks for sharing. Your story sounds similar to mine, so I think I can say I know where you're coming from. But since it's your story here, I won't take the spotlight away from you just to tell my story. (Though you can read it here if you want: http://cnvillage.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5856)

Just a note: I think you might have posted this same bit three times, but I'm only commenting once. :wink: :lol:

[Councillor's note: I deleted your two duplicate postings, christianhopeful, and moved this one to the Are You A Naturist forum, since it goes better here.]

Thanks again don't!! I hope so too!! Its not easy living in a country where you don't know if there are other folks who practice nudity like I do!! Even if they are Christian! Oh well, once I find good Christian folk to fellowship with, I should be fine. Also, once God keeps his promise to me that I will start the very first nudist group in Trinidad and Tobago, I remain hopeful!!
