slayerx1010 asked: How can you hope to show that nudity isn't inherently sexual if you keep sharing photos from the Suicide Girls website?
Okay. First of all I’m going to publish your question because it comes up often (not necessarily about Suicide Girls but about other poses used in pictures we post). I hope you don’t mind. This is something that should be discussed.
The pictures you ask about were collected from Tumblr, not the Suicide Girls website. I know they originated there but that is of no importance to us. The Suicide Girls site is not a porn site. The pictures there are all submitted by girls that want to show themselves to be free spirited, adventurous women. They sport tats, wear their hair cut in wild ways and often colored brightly. And yes, sometimes girls submit pics that can be construed as sexual in nature.
My sister and I comb Tumbler looking for photos that fit within the framework of our specific Thought For Today. We don’t care what site we reblog from because the pictures we choose are theme related. Today’s theme is about relationships between girls. Nudity isn’t inherently sexual. In fact, it’s not sexual at all. A naked body is simply a naked body, nothing more.
On the other hand, nudists are human and they have relationships and within the framework of those relationships, they engage in activities of a sexual nature. This is true of lesbian couples and hetero couples. While we DON’T post photos of couples engaged in the sex act, every once in a while if the theme calls for it we will post a photo of two nudists expressing their feelings for one another in a warm, romantic, touchy-feely way.
There’s a difference between private nudity and public nudity. Public nudity is not the place for nudists to engage in expressing their feelings for each other in a sexual way. But the nudist and naturalist movements are not sterile either. We want to show nudists as human in regards to relationships. We don’t want newcomers to think that they have to give up sex with their wives or partners in order to become nudists.
People have also complained to us that photos that show a girl sitting in a chair like a man would or on a beach or in nature in a natural in a comfortable way is somehow pornographic. Females at nudist resorts or beaches often sit like this. So what? Get your minds right people. You are sexualizing these perfectly normal nudist pictures. Don’t blame us, look in the mirror.
To be truthful, no matter what picture of a naked nudist girl you post on you nudist blog, it will end up on some horn-dog’s blog. We can’t stop that on Tumblr, unfortunately. But if they reblog with our message, perhaps it will reach some viewer’s heart and help them to understand the truth about nudists and naturalists.

Anonymous asked: Why do you believe Jesus existed when there's no historical evidence he existed? By this I mean no personally written texts, no artifacts confirming his life or death, and no writings by his friends or enemies about him during his lifetime. I don't mean this offensively, I'm just really curious.
Thank you for asking this respectfully :)
Well the bible is a huge bunch of personally written texts and letters to and from churches, full of prophesies which came true. it is the word of God and as a believer of it, I believe everything in it is true. Also, He is basically all that is secure in my life. If I died right now, I would be ok knowing that I will be found with Him. He is present, He is constant and He is alive. His love is unexplainable, but it truly satisfies. He loves all of humanity regardless of what we do and for that, all that I am is to give back to Him and others.
Jesus completely changed the course of humanity, from death to life. He paid it all and gave it all.
I can’t explain it, but I know He is there and He loves You. Ask me more questions off anon if you want to. I’m here for ya
Well Faith, yes, but let’s not forget that the Bible is a historical document that is irrefutable as a text of the time period. You may not agree with the words written, but no one seriously disputes the document itself as written in the life and times of the people it speaks of. Aside from the Bible there are numerous texts that refer to Jesus such as the historian Josephus and the Acta Pilati. Only those that choose to be blind from the truth will dispute the historical fact of Jesus’ physical existence. Again, one may not agree with His life or His Words, but His existence cannot seriously be denied.
