Is Clothing A Result Of The Fall?
According to Genesis 3:21, God clothes Adam and Eve:

Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them (NKJV).

It wasn't until after the fall that the Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife. This begs the question, "Would mankind wear clothing today if Adam and Eve had not sinned yesterday?"

No, we would not be wearing clothing if they hadn't sinned. Also, we would not be sinful either.

Thanks for your comment. I certainly agree that we would not be sinful if Adam and Eve had refrained from eating the forbidden fruit. But I do not agree that clothing would have been necessary.
