God and Nakedness

R.C. Sproul

Series: The Intimate Marriage


In the book of Genesis, the book of beginnings, we see the first game of hide and seek. Adam and Eve hid from God in the Garden because they realized they were naked, and because of that knowledge they were ashamed. In this case, their nakedness was more than skin-deep. However, God has since remedied the problem. Dr. Sproul thinks of this account as he discusses the institution of marriage as a safe-haven where shame need not exist.
