Nudist Churches!!!!

It is rather unfortunate that the nude movement has crept into the church: Many People today masquerade as Christians and teach that there is nothing wrong in worshiping completely naked. They even twist God's word to justify their actions. They claim that since Adam and Eve were naked and unashamed in the Garden of Eden, Christians should also not be ashamed of being naked in the open.

What these fools are willingly ignorant of is that Adam and Eve weren't naked flesh wise in the garden of Eden.1 Cor 15: 44 says: ".....There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body." Adam and Eve didn't possess a natural body in Eden. They possessed  a spiritual body. So using them to justify nakedness is blasphemy and shows that these people are ignorant of scripture.
The "nakedness of no shame" referred to in the book of Genesis was a nakedness of the soul i.e man had no glory of his own (i.e he had no ego ) but possessed the glory of his Maker which covered his eyes from being conscious of his naked (empty) self.
As soon as he disobeyed God, he ceased to see and perceive God and His glory and began to see his empty and naked self i.e He became self/ego conscious (began to see himself with no glory). That is why he became ashamed of himself and tried to clothe himself with his own glory ( Isa 30:1 ):
That is the same way many people in the world today try to cover the void created by God's absence i.e their empty and naked selves with their manufactured glories: their egos i.e.their good works, their degrees, their reputations, their ambitions, their knowledge etc in an attempt give some glory to their empty selves instead of stripping themselves of their so called glory and putting on Christ to cover the void. ( Romans 13:14 ).

Man is a soul:
The Bible states that man is a Soul. ( Gen 2:7 ) The body is just the temple of the soul. The real man is the soul within the body of man. After the fall, a natural body was given to man (the soul) by God as a means of expressing the soul in a material world (interacting with his environment) That is why the ancestor of any action is the thought not the body. I.e A man cannot kill,have sex or love without it 1st of all originating in his mind.

The bodies we possess today are given to us as coverings for the soul.Gen 3:21 says:"Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins,and clothed them".
The"skin" here is the body of skin we possess. Man had a spiritual body in spiritual Eden so after the fall, man needed a new body to adapt to his fallen (physical) environment hence the need for a "coat"of skins so he could adapt to his new environment. Job 10:11 confirms this:
"Thou(God) hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews". It is  God that clothes us with skin and flesh.Also,2 Corinthians 5:2:"For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house(body) which is from heaven":

The Fact that He gave us an earthly body to be able to adapt to an earthly environment doesn't mean He wants us to move around like dogs and pigs (Note that both of them are naturally covered with fur/bristles in order reflect the need to be clothed).
He demands that we be clothed decently and modestly. That is what distinguishes us from Beasts. Jesus emphasized the need to be clothed when he stated in Matt 6:30  "Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more "clothe you", O ye of little faith? "

Here are the websites of some so called 'churches' that teach the nudity doctrine:
