The singer Prince was a Jehovah Witness. My question based on truth from the bible, do people who belong to religions of JW's, Mormon's, Islam, and etc., go to Heaven or Hell?

For he says to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. Romans 9:15 NKJV

It would depend on his receiving Jesus as his Savior alone. I've heard of, and am pretty sure there are many Christians that get caught up in their teachings, maybe even through marriage and such that are not grown enough in their own faith to know those religions are wrong. We serve God Who knows the intents of our hearts, is full of grace, and will rightly judge all of us in the light of Jesus Christ and His righteousness. Even in our own Christian assemblies there will be the unbeliever bearing the name Christ without knowing Him.
Blessings in Christ Jesus. :wave2

You won't make it Eugene if you don't know him.. I've met many religious people over the years we all have.. Its an easy question to pose to a religious person "Do you know Jesus" They'll either say yes or go into a speech about what they know about him. A believer will say yes.. immediately.. no hesitation.. that's been my experience..

Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

In his statement Jesus made it abundantly clear whom he would save.. no presuming just truth.. and again Jesus said:

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

I have no ability nor right to judge him. I mourn the loss of a great artist and leave it at that.

Prince made a strange statement about 5 days before his death. He told the crowd the Saturday, wait a few days before you waste your prayers. He was referring to him being sick the previous week and his private jet making a emergency landing to get him to the hospital.

I remember that. There may be more to this than a simple passing.

I'm not a fan of his music genre, but find myself a little anxious to hear the results of the autopsy & toxicology. He was worth a lot, and had been on YouTube bashing the Illuminati, so...who knows?

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Rom 10:13 (RSV) "every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved."
There Paul quoted Joel 2:32a (RSV) And it shall come to pass that all who call upon the name of the LORD shall be delivered.
No one in Joel's time knew about Jesus. "The Lord", to them, was Yahweh Elohiym.

Jesus also said: "Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get." Mat 7:1-2 (RSV)

I thought it would be obvious.
You posted "John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." suggesting that you knew that Prince was not saved.
To which I responded: "Rom 10:13 (RSV) "every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved."
There Paul quoted Joel 2:32a (RSV) And it shall come to pass that all who call upon the name of the LORD shall be delivered. No one in Joel's time knew about Jesus. "The Lord", to them, was Yahweh Elohiym." thereby suggesting that is Prince had called on the name of the Lord, he would be saved even if his understanding of who the Lord was lacking as it was for the Jews at the time of Joel.

And, since you seemed to believe you knew the man's fate, I posted "Jesus also said: "Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get." Mat 7:1-2 (RSV)" to suggest that it would be better not to pronounce condemnation on someone of whom you know just about nothing since you will be judged by the same standard you use to judge others.

Hope that clears it up for you.

Have a fabulous day.

So, you think you know whether or not he ever "came to Jesus."
That's rich.

Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this seal, The Lord knows them that are his. And, Let every one that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19 NKJV
