Welcome to CNV!

Being in ministry is a beautiful gift that should have gained you some respect. If by "born again" you don't mean infant baptism you might be getting old enough to take some risks in teaching the truth about nudity.

Isn't nudity or near-nudity an old African tradition? It's been wrongly given the connotation of being savage or uncivilized, but could you use respecting ancient cultural traditions as well as the scripture to promote nudity? Could nudity being a no-no be racist?

Pastor Bernard,

When you say it is a "no no", are you saying it is "illegal" or just not "socially acceptable"?

When we were in Ethiopia last year, twice, I saw someone walking down the road completely nude, on on a country road, and one in town. No one seemed to notice or care. Both were young men, so I do not know how they might react if they had been women. However, that was only two out of the thousands of people I came across, so I do not thing that nudity is the norm.
SON-cerely,
