Why is Nakedness Shameful?

When God created Adam and Eve, and placed them in the garden of Eden, it is recorded: "They were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed"(Gen.2:25).  So what happened, in the garden of Eden, to cause nakedness to be shameful?  Before I answer that question, permit me to summarise the events that led up to the couple hiding themselves because they discovered that they were naked. 

 The background

Satan, in the form of a serpant, deceived the woman into believing that God was hiding something from them, by forbidding them to eat of the tree of good and evil(Gen.3:4-5).  So after being deceived, the woman "took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat(Gen.3:6).

The narrative continues: "the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked..."(Gen.3:7).  Were they created blind?  God forbid!  For we read: "when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and it was pleasant to the eyes..."(Gen.3:6).  So according to the narrative, when they were created, their physical eyes were opened.  So what eyes are these that were opened, after they ate of the tree of good and evil?  Well, according to the revelation and inspired teaching of the Chosen Vessel, man has two sets of eyes.  One physical set, which allow him see the world around him, and the other set spiritual.  But sadly, man is spiritually blind.  Hence the pray of the Chosen Vessel is this: "I cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the EYES of your understanding being enlightened;..(Eph.1:16-18).

So, the eyes of Adam's and Eve's understanding were suddenly opened to comprehend the wretched state into which they had fallen, by failing to obey God's instruction, not to even touch the tree of good and evil.  But why was nakedness suddenly shameful?

I delibertaely created a degree of suspense, by delaying answering this question, to shame the current and former hirelings/ministers of The Worldwide Church of God, who quitely frankly are ignorant of the teachings of the bible.  Dr Meredith, in particular, like to boast that he taught the Epistles of Paul for 25 years at Ambassador College, yet the man is completely ignorant of wholesome teachings of the bible.

To be able to understand and teach the Epistles of the Chosen Vessel, one has to receive "visions and revelations of Lord, and be taken up to the third heaven, to hear unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter"(2 Cor.12:1-4).

Which of the hireling ministers of WCG will dare say, "I was taken up to the third heaven, which is Paradise?

That is the question, which I shall answer later.
