Knowledge of Good & Evil

In God's Dress Code I was presented with a very good question that could make a lot of sense.

"Why would God have a dress code if we were all supposed to be naked 
In the first place?"

We were naked in the garden and in the beginning, "and the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;" This is while in the presence of God and while worshiping with him nakedness is nothing. We have no idea that sin is possible we just know one thing, "do not eat of the tree." We were given one commandment and it was not to eat of the tree of Good and Evil. What happens is the serpent, who is later revealed as satan [rev 20:2] brings his deceit. "and ye shall be as gods." Eve buys what she is told like she would buy a piece of junk car from the best used car salesman in the world. We first see Eve's fall into the deception when she begins to misquote and lessen Gods warnings. God says, "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely [without a doubt] die." After the serpent talks to Eve she says, "God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye thouch it, lest [probably] ye die." Two variances appear here, "neither shall ye touch it" and "lest [probably] ye die." As Eve is walking into the trap she adds neither shall ye touch it [Hebrew word naga] which a better translation [like what a 1st or 2nd century Hebrew would read] would be stricken. Neither shall ye be stricken [turned to death] by it. She emphasizes the dangers of it to satan, but then lessens God's words "lest [probably] ye die." Eve has already began to fall for the lie.

Moving on towards nakedness, because we now have the knowledge of Good and Evil, nakedness becomes a problem. Just as God intended Sex to be a precious and rewarding thing, the whispers of satan have polluted our thoughts. Sex becomes idolized, it becomes promiscuous, and it leads to the thought of lust. With the principle of Sex becoming more about self gratification [in our society] and less about serious commitment and bond sanctioned by God bringing two together as one, we have misused what God gave us. Just like with nudity, we now know what how we can twist it, at first we were embarrassed [no one told them they were naked] because they developed a god status of someone will see and care [narcissistic and prideful thought]

Pride of course being initial sin. Satan began by trying to be above God because he thought he was greater. Man sin's because at the time we take the law into our own cognition and declare what we find as right [luckily the spirit of conviction shows us the truth]. Which takes me back to God's dress code. Now that sex becomes an idol, and our bodies give us a pride concept we are to HUMBLE ourselves and cover up. If anyone had this question or thought i hope it is cleared up.
