Jehovah witness..

When did Prince convert to being a Jehovah witness? Was there ever any mention of him attending church with either parent as a child? Just so many mysteries about this man.... His music was a

testament to his belief in God- despite the earlier sexual themes.

This 411 isn't hard to find if you use the Search feature first. These things are not a mystery, at all.

Prince was raised Seventh Day Adventist. He became a JW around 1999-2000. His JW dogmatic beliefs are clear in The Rainbow Children. Even in the 21 Nights book his bible, which is a JW version called New World Translation, is pictured. There are a few photos of him attending JW conferences with Larry Graham. After his death, one Kingdom Hall he attended talked about him.

come on in seahorsie. I'm not sure how else one thinks we will keep his legacy alive if folks aren't

welcoming. He went to church as a child loved the choir mostly according to him. Lots of good books out there too that will give you some

history. best.

In My Opinion, Prince Made a Big Mistake Joining The JW Cult! All Religious Denominations Try To Brainwash People. And The JW's Are The Worst Of Them All! I Think His Mother Convinced Him To Join That Cult.

Even though Prince did adopt some ways of the JW, while growing up in Minneapolis he was part of a youth group at a Baptist Church and even went on mission trips. One article I read said that some members of a congregation in a Methodist Church in Minneapolis remember him attending Sunday morning worship services in the Methodist Church (in his later years) and after reading about Prince's life and hearing the lyrics to his music, I am convinced he was saved and is in Heaven today. It is my opinion that Prince was coerced into the JW group. But, there are Christian JW individuals and the Bible they read is JUST like my Bible (and I am a Southern Baptist through and through). Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven. Just because Prince "followed" the JW ways, he did not LOSE his salvation. And I will see Prince in Heaven one day!

His sister said they went to a Methodist church and sometimes they went SDA. JW are a offshoot of SDA so I doubt anyone had to force him to be a JW.

And I Have Some Issues With His "Religious Mother". It Was Not Cool That She Let Him Move Out Of Her House When He Was A Kid. It Was Not Cool That She Showed Him Porn Movies When He Was A Kid. It Was Not Cool That She Allowed His stepfather To Be Physically Abusive Towards Him.

And I Read Somewhere That She Used To Say Mean/Negative Things To Tyka(Verbal/Emotional Abuse)When Tyka Was A Kid. Not Cool.

Interesting, people. Everyone adds a layer on what we all think we already know. And you are right, salvation is not lost. If we believe and accept the free gift of everlasting life. We are all, always sinners and will continue to sin after conversion. Thank goodness the blood will cover us. The only unforgiveable sin is to know that Christ is king, and refuse to accept him. (Look it up, it's in there) We will see Prince in the days to come.

the song "7" is almost word for word in some verses, straight out of 7th Day Adventist doctrine....and the 7DA booklet in the late 60s early 70s was actually called "Signs Of The Times"

He attended SDA churches when he was young and his father was a SDA. SDA interpretations of biblcal events are scattered thoughtout his works. Scoff if you want to it is what it is.

The most effective way to stop JWs knocking on your door is to join the cult. Then what you do is LEAVE the cult. This will mean that you are shunned and no JW will be allowed to talk to you! biggrin

The Amish don't try to recruit though do they?

Should work for Mormons too.

Don't try it with scientologists though. They'll fuck you up for good.

Nope, no recruiting period. An outside adult can join the church, but they have to give up everything - no halfsies. Also, no baptising babies, hence why they are called "Anabaptist". Children can join the church and be baptized starting age 12. You are supposed to know you are giving your life to God.

Everybody has different needs. I'm comfortable winging it at this point in life, I mean guidance is wonderful and I accept it, but I don't think I need my every minute, thought or action dictated to the nth degree so I wouldn't do well in any of those groups.
