Elaine got this one right! “Yada yada yada!”
Today it might have morphed into meaning blah blah blah.
But Elaine correctly used this as a euphemism for sex.
It’s from the Hebrew word “Yada”… which means “to know” and depending on context… it means “to Know Sexually”. You know what I mean… to “really know”.
Adam knew Eve and they bore a son.
Cain knew his wife and she conceived and bore Enoch.
Joseph did not know Mary until she gave birth to Jesus. (Though Greek same meaning).
So… Elaine was correctly using “Yada” and I didn’t even get it.
This is very pertinent to our study in Adult Sunday School.
Gen. 19:5 “And the men of Sodom called to Lot ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may YADA them.'”
Wow… and it’s down hill from there.
Let’s be like the Bereans and search the Scriptures to find out what is true- concerning Homosexuality.
Truth…? I am not the truth, but I am searching for it.
Oh… and if you know Elaine… she did like the lobster bisque. (Ha!)
We all agree it can not just be a free for all on sexual issues. Right?
Do we all agree on that? (At least your spouse will probably agree.)
There must be boundary lines of acceptable sexual behavior and unacceptable sexual behavior.
The question is, where are those boundary lines, and who makes them?
Part of this study might just help some to realize… “I” make my own boundaries. And then “I” must ask if that makes sense in the real world. Where each of us simply makes up our own boundaries.
If the next generation pushes “your” boundaries… where are we collectively headed?
If culture dictates these, then just be honest about that, and realize there will forever be an ebb and flow of “truth” from possible Middle America Conservativism to Romanesque Bath Houses.
Let me clearly state… I do not think it is me who defines the boundary lines. I’m not the truth.
But I am searching for it.
