I Was Taught Wrong

You didn’t read that incorrectly. I spent the last few days reading Chain Breakers by R.B. Mears on Kindle. This book really opened my eyes to some biblical principles and information I had been taught wrong my entire life. I always try to make sure that I do my own research and not believe everything a man tells me. So along with reading this book I did some research to ensure what I was reading was true.

Several pastors that I have learned from always told us to check them on everything they preached by looking it up in scripture and researching it for ourselves. While reading Chain Breakers, I was doing just that. Looking up every single reference that was mentioned in the book and doing further research. I am still doing more research as I write this blog post to share with all of you.

Nakedness the way many in church have described it to us growing up would be wrong and a sin. But looking at the words that were used in the original Bible text make a lot more sense and give us a better picture of how God described being naked. This really rocked my world when I learned there were different ways God described nakedness in the Bible.

Here is one those words and the definition:

NAKED: Arom: עָרוֹם (Sounds like: ahrohm)

Arom (עָרוֹם): naked; Or marom {aw-rome’}; from aram (in its original sense); nude, either partially or totally — naked. (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance)

Arom often spoke of the childlike innocent nudity. This was found in Genesis when Adam and Eve were nude in the Garden of Eden. They didn’t know of their nakedness until Satan had told them they were naked. They covered themselves up. God did not command them to cover up and was angry that they had been told about their nakedness.

When we think about how God described nakedness it really puts it in a proper perspective and allows us to be released from Satan’s definition of nakedness and its purpose.
