As the question is posed (see emphasis)...

Would you:
a. cease being a naturist/nudist?
b. ignore anything that person had revealed and continue in your current life style?
c. actively argue against any or all of those 'proofs'?
d. pursue some other course of action?


... I would have to choose (a.).

However, that does not mean that I would cease investigating Scriptures to prove him wrong.

What it comes down to, all said and done, is I - any of us, I think - would quit if God clearly said quit.

If being naked (or witnessing nakedness) in the presence of someone other than one's spouse is a sin,
then rescuing a naked person from a fire or flood would also be a sin.
Better to let them die unseen than commit the sin of nakedness?

Did Jesus sin when he cured the ill on the sabbith? Some were ready to stone him until he took them to task. This definately falls in the same catagory.

It would seem that would be the logical conclusion. :?
