Put some clothes on, celebrities!

        It amazes me how skimpy women's clothing is becoming in the entertainment industry. I mean, it's like they can't show enough. When your every appearance is marked with a wardrobe "malfunction" you aren't wearing enough fabric. Worse, still, is that some of the most scantily dressed celebrities are actually being passed off as the good, wholesome, normal examples for young girls today.

        Do you know what the compelling desire to be as naked as possible in public is indicative of? Look in the Bible where the disciples encountered the demon-possessed maniac in Gadara (Luke 8:26-35). He roamed the cemetaries NAKED (v. 27). Now look at what verse 35 says:

(Luke 8:35)
Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, CLOTHED, and in his right mind...

        It's not by mistake that the Bible makes mention of clothing. Missionaries that have traveled the remote jungles of Africa, South America, Haiti, Central America, etc, where the pagan natives dress in nothing but loin cloths will tell you that as soon as one of them are saved they immediately ask for clothes.

        There's no way to know what the appearance of the body was like before it's consideration became subject to the knowledge of evil in the Garden of Eden. The Bible simply tells us that Adam and Even were naked and unashamed when there was only the knowledge of good (Genesis 2:25). But after man fell and handed his dominion over to Satan to be re-authored with destructive urges, the body had to be clothed.

        So... put some dang clothes on, celebrities!
