The bible teaches us to clothe the naked as if it were a prerequisite to enter heaven. Few pay mind to this because Jesus died, so there is no working for our salvation. I’m not sure about that “Jesus died for you so there is no working for your salvation thing that many Christians believe.” Lets just say we believe in Jesus who saved us and Jesus said, “I was naked and you clothed me.” to those who get to go to heaven. To those who don’t go to heaven he says “I was naked and you didn’t clothe me.”
He explained that if you don’t help others than you don’t help me. So Jesus died and earned our respect, so we should help him right.
I’m 55 years old and I have never come across any naked people who need clothing. So what does that mean?
It’s slang or poetry. Our nakedness is our shame. When a person is ashamed we are supposed to comfort them. Another way to explain this. Another scripture in the new testament tells us that love covers many sins. Nakedness represents the sin and clothing represents love.
What we should not do, as we are programmed by reality TV and such other items in society. We are not supposed to judge.
Like – “you did what, Oh my goodness, I would never.” When really only God knows if you really would or not. So don’t judge.
Clothe the naked. When a person feels ashamed and guilty, help them to feel better about them self. It won’t hurt you none and it might help them and you might get to go to heaven.
