During a live question and answer session recently, Super Bowl winning quarterback Russell Wilson confessed that he and his girlfriend have decided to do it the ‘Jesus way,’ vowing to stay abstinent until marriage should they pursue that path.
Wilson has been dating Grammy Award-winning R&B artist, Ciara since late April.
Wilson explained the decision to San Diego pastor Miles McPherson…
“She was on tour, and I was looking at her in the mirror, and God spoke to me,” Wilson told the pastor. “He said, ‘I need you to lead her.’
“I told her, ‘What would you do if we took all that “extra stuff” off the table, and just did it Jesus’ way?'” the quarterback continued, clarifying that yes, he was “talking about sex.”
Wilson said the 29-year-old singer “completely agreed,” though he admitted that refraining from sex wasn’t easy. “I ain’t gonna lie to y’all now — I need you to pray for us,” he told the congregation. “I know y’all have seen her on the screen. If there’s a 10, she’s a 15.”
Watch a clip from the interview…
Wilson recently made headlines off the field, but not for the wrong reasons as so many NFL players do. Instead, he showed off his Christian values a bit when he saw a soldier lugging his bags back to coach on a shared flight, and immediately upgraded his seat to first class.
What will be interesting to see is, if Wilson gets mocked for his Christian values in the same way that Tim Tebow has been throughout his career.
Remember when Tebow announced his vow of abstinence? An anti-religious nut almost immediately offered $1 million for any woman who could provide undeniable proof that she’d had sex with him.
Will they do the same to Russell Wilson?
