Unclean Spirit Driving Troubling Christian Movement

by | Nov 6, 2017 | Culture

The nudist movement has been preaching social nudity for ages and has made headway in beaches, campsites and pools. Now, nudists are invading local restaurants.

Paris just opened its first-ever naked restaurant. Named O’nature. The restaurant is publicly open to the publicly nude. The rule is to drop your clothes at the door before you’re seated in one of the 40 chairs.

This news didn’t surprise me, but what did was my subsequent research on Christian nudists. Yes, they exist. In fact, there is a Christian nudist movement called Naturist Christians. I won’t link to the website due to its graphic nature.

“When seeking to educate and promote our values, we have found that sometimes seeing examples means more than anything else. Here we present photos of people living their lives naturally, without clothes, without shame, and as God created it,” the site reads.

Christian nudists theologies are another perversion of God’s Word. God may have created man naked, but He Himself created clothes of animal skin for mankind after the fall (Gen. 3).

After that moment, nakedness largely carried a shameful connotation. When Noah got drunk and lay uncovered in his tent, for example, his sons Shem and Japheth walked into the tent backwards to cover him rather than looking upon his nudity (Gen. 9). Ham, by contrast, looked upon his father’s nakedness and did nothing. That resulted in Noah cursing him.

Nakedness is also mentioned in a negative context in Exodus 20:26, Isaiah 47:3, Ezekiel 16:35-36, Luke 8:27, Revelation 3:17, Revelation 16:15 and several other Scriptures. The pattern is clear: Nudity outside the marriage bed is a disgrace.

Indeed, there’s a demonic influence to the nudist movement, and it’s especially troubling to see Christians embracing it. Luke 8:27-31 makes the connection to an unclean spirit evident:

When He stepped out on land, a man from the city who had demons for a long time met Him. He wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before Him, and with a loud voice said, “What have You to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I plead with You, do not torment me.”  For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. It often had seized him, and he was kept under guard, bound with chains and shackles. But he broke the shackles and was driven by the demon into the wilderness.

 Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”

He said, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him. And they begged Him not to command them to go out into the abyss.

How did Jesus address this nudist? By casting the devil out of him!

This is all part of the tsunami of perversion I wrote about in 2015. Let’s pray that those who are walking in deception will break free, and those who are free now will not fall into deception.
