Question: "What should be the Christian perspective on nudity in art? But sin affected their hearts and minds, creating vulnerability, guilt, and shame, and these things produced fear verse In their attempt to cover their spiritual shame, Adam and Eve intuitively covered their bodies. We should note that, when God took away their fig leaves—a sadly inadequate covering—He replaced them with something more permanent—animal skins verse Thus, God regarded clothing as appropriate and necessary in a fallen world. However, due to the fall, nudity now has implications of sinfulness attached to it.

No faith in flesh: art exposes Christianity's original sin
Anna Rose Bain's Art Blog: Nudity in Art - From a Christian Perspective
France Davis doesn't want any nude Adam-and-Eve figures at his Calvary Baptist Church -- even if they were painted by the famed Michelangelo himself. Davis is unequivocal in his view that there is nothing inspiring or redeeming about naked figures in religious art. From the prudish impulses of the Counter-Reformation, to the Vatican's use of the fig leaf as a genital cover-up a century later, to modern Christians objecting to a nude Christ sculpted out of chocolate, there have always been those who wanted to see everything clothed. Scores of believers oppose any nakedness in art as blasphemous -- even a glimpse of the Virgin Mary's breast as she nurses her baby son -- or akin to pornography.

Does nude art belong in a Christian education?
Like many Christian colleges and universities, Wheaton College greatly values the discovery and individuality in artistic expression. However, there is also a significant gray area surrounding the creation of nude or provocative pieces of art in a Christian setting. Wheaton College has been working on a formal policy to address art-related issues for years, according to assistant professor of art history Matthew Milliner. There have been numerous meetings between members of the art department, the administration and other constituents of the college including associate dean of Residence Life Justin Heth to discuss the issue of nude art at Wheaton. Sophomore Natalie Flemming is one of many students affected by the lack of a figure drawing class at Wheaton.
Nudity has long been a staple of fine art, but many people feel it is inappropriate for an artist who is also a faithful Christian to portray nudity in their work. To modern sensibilities art is decoration. Usually, we are not called upon to look past the surface of what is presented.
