Will, Jada, and August

So my BMF and I were having a conversation this morning about Will, Jada and August. In case you don’t know, actress and NAACP Image Award recipient, Jada Pinkett Smith, allegedly had an affair with 27-year-old hip hop artist August Alsina with the permission of her Grammy and Academy Award winning husband, Will Smith. Before we get into it, let me preface this by saying, this is in no way an attempt to capitalize off of another person’s mistake. The reason I’m writing about it now is because this is a REAL ISSUE that needs to be addressed – from followers of Jesus Christ, so that the church and the world understands there is biblical precedence for something similar to their alleged affair in the Bible.

“Let's ask the hard question: Is Cougarin' in the Word?”

Again, it was during that conversation that I commented on August’s maturity, to which my friend rejected. He stated that from a man’s perspective, his actions were just the opposite. In my defense, I said that I based my maturity assessment based upon what was said during his interview with radio personality, Angela Yee, in that his explanations, positions, and spiritual experiences weren’t that of your normal 27-year-old. To my point, I also added that his maturity was a staunch reflection of Jada’s immaturity. I know because before I gave my life to Christ, I primarily dated nothing
