Let's not talk about sex
The laughs filled the room and their eyes grew bigger with excitement as we talked about how Potiphar's wife tried to seduce Joseph but Joseph fled and ran away. My class got more inquisitive when Potiphar's wife tore off Joseph's shirt and said that he slept with her, when really he did not. We talked of how Joseph was jailed for something he didn't even do. And out of all the weeks, we've studied out of the Bible, the class wants to know where they can go and read it themselves. Genesis 39
I saw their hands writing, because they wanted to go and read it for themselves. When I was almost done with this one hour lesson, one of the students said, "So, when do we talk about the dirty stuff?" I told them that Genesis 39 is about as dirty as they are gonna get it tonight. We talked about how shacking and fooling around was not in God's plan and that is why he created marriage and I told them that sex is not dirty because God created it to be enjoyed by married people. They said, "Ooooooo, she said the 'S' word. So I asked them how in the world they wanna hear about sex, but don't want the word sex mentioned. They didn't have an answer, except for giggles. I don't know how I get talked into doing these type of classes.
