Winter in Minnesnowta is once again waning, and warm weather is returning automatically without conjuring up nor pacifying alleged evil spirits and eclipse gods supposedly in charge of season-changing:
Ge 8:22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease."
Ex 4:11 Then the LORD said to him, "Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him dumb, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD?
Ps 135:7 He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.
Ec 11:5 As you do not know how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything.
Am 4:13 For lo, he who forms the mountains, and creates the wind, and declares to man what is his thought; who makes the morning darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth--the LORD, the God of hosts, is his name!
Zec 10:1 Ask rain from the LORD in the season of the spring rain, from the LORD who makes the storm clouds, who gives men showers of rain, to every one the vegetation in the field.
1Co 10:20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons.
Ro 1:19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse;
21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen.
The weather has been frigid and hostile to any Amazonian, Brazilian, or Aboriginal-type natives desiring to licentuously display their worse-than-bikinied/better-than-bikinied bare-breasted or bare-buttocked nakedness in general public view:
Re 3:15 "'I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot!
Re 3:16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth.
Being spit out of one's mouth is the result of displaying merely partial lurid exhibitionism of [pornographic] loose-long-haired mopheadedness, naked-arm sleeveslessness, nude-legged slackslessness, and/or partially-bare-footed sockslessness under sandals or flip-flops......contrary to Scriptural admonitions of being modestly attired 24/7 year-round when in general public view.
Put another way, the severe cold (with the threat of exposed skin succombing to frigid frostbite within minutes with consequential intense pain, gangrene, and amputation) has stifled and postponed their hang-up and obsession to distract and harass others with nondiscriminate lust-inciting nudist exhibitionism.
Don't get me wrong. I'm all for legitimate and timely flaunting of total human nudity for certain choice occasions and under special circumstances. That is quite congruent with the essence and import of what is contained within the Biblical Song of Solomon:
Song 7: 1 How graceful are your footsteps in sandals, royal maiden! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand.
2 Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies.
3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.
4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, overlooking Damascus.
5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
6 How fair and pleasant you are, O loved one, delectable maiden!
7 You are stately as a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.
8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its branches. Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,
9 and your kisses like the best wine that goes down smoothly, gliding over lips and teeth of sleepers.
10 I am my beloved's, and his desire is for me.
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the fields, and lodge in the villages;
12 let us go out early to the vineyards, and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.
13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and over our doors are all choice fruits, new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
Song 8:1 O that you were like a brother to me, that nursed at my mother's breast! If I met you outside, I would kiss you, and none would despise me.
2 I would lead you and bring you into the house of my mother, and into the chamber of her that conceived me. I would give you spiced wine to drink, the juice of my pomegranates.
3 O that his left hand were under my head, and that his right hand embraced me!
4 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you stir not up nor awaken love until it please.
5 Who is that coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? Under the apple tree I awakened you. There your mother was in travail with you, there she who bore you was in travail.
6 Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame of the LORD.
However, there is a time and place for everything:
Ec 3:5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
Ec 3:6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
Most of the time is for keeping clothed - not merely for the sake of avoiding frostbite, but for communally-cooperative purposes of concentrating on other constructive and inventive things besides nudity-stimulated acts of Divinely-ordered sexual intercourse for sensual pleasure and for reproduction:
Ge 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
Ge 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.
2Co 5:3 so that by putting it on we may not be found naked.
2Co 5:4 For while we are still in this tent, we sigh with anxiety; not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
1Ti 2:15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
1Ti 5:8 If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than a disbeliever.
1Ti 5:14 So I would have younger women marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the adversary no cause to revile us.
Re 16:15 ("Wow, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake, keeping his garments that he may not go naked and be seen exposed!").
Ignore the over-populationist nutcase goofs who deplore non-condomized, non-contraceptive, and non-abortive reproduction. They ignore the vast areas of habitable desolation out west and many other noninhabited but liveable areas elsewhere with their irrational and wacko roots-and-berries-only anti-meat/exclusively-vegetarian over-environmentalism:
Ex 12:8 They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it.
Ro 14:2 One believes he may eat anything, while the weak man eats only vegetables.
Of course, in the process of killing edible lifeforms to eat them, one need not abuse them in the process:
Pr 12:10 A righteous man has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.
Speaking of nudity stimulating sexual activities, some recent publicity has been given to penis pumps with the brand name of Pos-T-Vac. Not mentioned is the additional necessity of ringlet tourniquets (spelling?) around the blood-filled rigid penis to prolong erection. Such silly self-sodomy for spousal heterosexual purposes is generally not necessary for those particularly younger-adult males who have not worn out their limited erectile capacities with porn-viewing-exacerbated self-sodomizing masturbation and who experience penile non-flaccidy and non-limpidity by the mere sight of increasing degrees of attractive female-human exposure of various body parts, legitimatized by being married to the sensual arousers at the time:
Pr 5:18 Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth,
Pr 5:19 a lovely hind, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight, be infatuated always with her love.
Mal 2:13 And this again you do. You cover the LORD's altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor at your hand.
14 You ask, "Why does he not?" Because the LORD was witness to the covenant between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant.
15 Has not the one God made and sustained for us the spirit of life? And what does he desire? Godly offspring. So take heed to yourselves, and let none be faithless to the wife of his youth.
1Co 6:9 Do you not know that the non-righteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites,
1Co 6:10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.
This we can do without disfiguring nor mangling our bodies and devoid of indigenously-lewd shame, contrary to the abusive witch-doctor and shamanism mandates of demonic traditions based upon voodoo superstitions:
De 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, any one who practices divination, a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer,
Le 19:28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
Isa 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
2Co 6:14 Do not be mismated with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15 What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?
16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will live in them and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you,
18 and I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."
With reference to primative natives with noncivilized and sexually-defiling practices, there are many natives in South America and Africa who have been positively responsive and healthfully receptive to the teaching of Christian Catholics and other missionaries, and their sensible modest dress shows that:
Mr 5:15 And they came to Jesus, and saw the demoniac sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, the man who had had the legion; and they were afraid.
Lu 8:35 Then people went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to which was borne at the proper time.
7 For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in decent apparel, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good deeds, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I all no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
There are other natives who have rejected the Lord's Word and ways, and have gone off in gradually self-destructive disobedience, secluding and quaranteening themselves away as they are deliberately doom themselves to weird-habits eventual extinction:
Ro 7:3 Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she belongs to another man while her husband is alive.....
1Jo 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out, that it might be plain that they all are not of us.
