A Preacher Declare Nudist Movement To Be Of The Devil

I was working on a painting I am doing that illustrates some seen of the life of Christ. i was was listening to Billy Graham, his sermon was about the incident where Jesus castes out legion out of the fellow who dwell among the tombs. In his sermon he mentioned that he believe that society’s growing curiosity toward nudity was of the Devil. I believe from what his words were,he was teaching that man kind should always cover their bodies because they are defiled by the curse upon all creation because of Adam and Eve’s transgression in the garden of Eden. I personally do not subscribe to this theory . I believe that because of the transgression that nature has turn on man,and at times our environment is harmful when in direct contact with our bodies. Rev. Graham equated the naked new of the man to be one of signs that he was possessed by demons.
I on the other hand would say the sign of demon possession did not lie in his nakedness,but in the negative environment his body was being exposed,and the intent to harm that body. Because not only was he naked,he also cut his body with rocks,and he dwelt among the tomb ,most likely poor shelter against harmful weather. The village people tried to bind him with metal chains,most likely try to prevent him from attacking passing travelers. The other sign is the man was raging mad and violent.
Rev.graham went on to say that God clothed us with animal skins and our bodies should not be exposed.
I believe that the animal skin were to ,cover their act of disobedience to God, their aprons they had fashion for their selves . I believe God had mad their fist clothes out of animal skins to show them that the innocent had to forfeit their lives so man sin could be covered in the sight of God.
Because without that covering in God’s sight,he would have to wipe them out,do to the requirement of his Own righteousness. God’s Son would come and die to remove the penalty of sin once and for all through Jesus who knew no sin took the place of a criminal on the cross ,the innocent paying for the crimes of the guilty.
So if all nudity is sinful be fore God, why are all the animals naked. Most of man kinds existence, they have had to work and cohabitant with animals. I have not grown up on a farm, but i have plenty of times seen a horse’s penis drop to almost the grown, and their penis look just like a man’s,just larger. The bible also teach that a human should not approach a animal to have sexual relations with it.
So if god know that man would be temped to do such a perverse thing,why did He put a diaper on all the animals? I personally believe that there is nothing wrong with human nudity ,just as their is nothing wrong with animal nudity. All of God creation is under the curse and cries out for the coming day of redemption.
A person is not sinning against God because they are naked,but if their is conduct is immoral ,than they are offending God.
Remember our soul is what need to be covered by the Blood of Christ,to transform us from being an enemy of God under the Judgement of sin,to a forgiven child of God.
