If Prince was your kid's Sunday school teacher?

I think it would be a beautiful thing, seeing Mr.Nelson teach the wee ones on the glory of Jesus Christ and the lives he has touched. He seems to know quite a bit about The Bible and I think secretly he is one of those people who loves kids! What do you think? biggrin

Not quite up to that level. Probably MAD-TV.

Sounds like a fucking trainwreck. Prince would demand $77 offering every month, and half way into a lesson, he'd just leave without explanation.

He knows quite a bit about the New World Translation, not The Bible. NWT is not the Bible, IMO.

geez you do alot of profiling
but anyways, it doesn't matter what archaic translated Bible, what toungue, what branch of Christianity Prince takes from for the only thing that matters is whether he's a believer or denier. It's very black and white when it comes to the truth.. and judging from Prince's lyrics to lifestyle these days.. it seems to me he's doin good.

geez you do a lot of assuming
I'm not going to debate translations either. God gives the truth, but JW's read a translation that is SO far off from anything, no one else will touch it....except the JW, who translated it themselves. JW isn't Christianity, as far as I'm concerned. The Holy Spirit is a teacher, among other things. I'm glad I know that. I know Christians know that too.

A "cult" is just a religion w/out political power... or one that people want to put down, for whatever reason.

Exactly. So, a religion is just a cult without political power. I agree.

JW believe only 10-15 people know how to interpret the Bible. They are the ones who write the Watchtower, which is why that publication is so important. (Sounds a little like the Catholic religion who believe that the Pope is the only person who can interpret the Bible).

JW's don't celebrate any holidays including Christian holidays such as Easter and Christmas because they have Pagan roots.

They are not allowed blood transfusions believing that this is the "eating of blood" not allowed in the Bible for Gentiles. JW's salute no flags of any nation.

JW's are not allowed to associate or talk to non JW's except those they are trying to convert.

They do not believe in the Trinity. Instead, they follow a strict monotheism, in which: Jehovah is the Supreme Being. Jesus is the Son of God, a created being. Christ is believed to have originally existed in a pre-human state as the Archangel Michael. He later took human form as a man like any other person, except that he was sinless at birth and remained so throughout his earthly life. Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ. They believe that after the crucifixion, Christ died and was resurrected as an invisible, non-material, glorious, spirit creature. They believe that Jesus appeared on earth after his resurrection in a special body that Jehovah created for him.The Holy Spirit they believe, is not a separate entity, but is simply a force: the method by which God interacts with the world.

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that a person is the soul the Bible speaks of, and when a person dies nothing lives on, the person is dead and is conscious of nothing.

They totally deny the existence of the traditional Christian view of Hell. Satan is regarded as having created the concept of Hellfire in order to turn people against God. They believe that hell is the "common grave of mankind" where people go when they die. They are not conscious there. Unbelievers simply cease to exist at death. Believers remain in death until the resurrection.
The Heavenly Kingdom took effect in 1914 with the invisible enthronement of Christ as King. A little flock or Anointed Class of about 135,300 people currently occupies it. All were selected after Christ's ascension into heaven at Pentecost (33 AD) and during subsequent centuries. The selection of the full complement of 144,000 was completed in 1935. Some 8,700 are still living on earth. They will spend eternity as spirit creatures in heaven with God and Christ and will rule over the other Jehovah’s Witnesses who remain on earth. Those spending eternity on earth are what Jehovah’s Witnesses call the Great Crowd or Other Sheep

They reject the traditional symbol of Christianity, the cross, as being of pagan origin. They translate the Greek word from the Christian Scriptures "stauros" as "torture stake", and believe that Jesus was crucified on a single upright wooden stake with no crossbeam. They view the cross as an Idol and wearing or displaying one is considered idol worship.

(It doesn't matter WHAT Jesus died on, the important thing in Chritianity is Jesus was ressurected!!)


After reading all this, keep Prince away from my kids lol
Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Ha ha! You're probably right about that $77 payment. None of that money would be used for any class trips either! He would also most likely guide the kids into not voting in presidential elections too, I would start looking for another school.
