Former child actor and singer Marques Houston says he has found the truth. A quick scroll through his Instagram page will show you that he’s been a practicing Jehovah’s Witness from the start of this year. And by practicing I mean he attends services, gives talks and even goes door to door with Jehovah’s message.

In one image, comparing himself this year to an image of himself last year, he wrote:

“What a difference a year makes! On the left I took a selfie in March of 2015. On the right I took a selfie of the night I gave my first talk March 10, 2016. Thank you Jehovah for allowing me to make this progress. It’s such a privilege to be able to serve you whole heartedly. And this Summer you will make my dream come true! I will finally be able to call my self your Witness 🙏🏾 #JW #WhatADifferenceAYearMakes #Love”

In another he writes:

“It is amazing how Jehovah not only transforms u from the outside, but most importantly the inside. #ILOVEJEHOVAH #jw Thank you for rescuing me out of the world…”

The 34-year-old has received a mostly positive response to the change he recently made in his life. Though he did post one message asking that his followers avoid spreading negativity on his page.

For those who aren’t familiar, Jehovah’s Witnesses are a part of a Christian-based religion that believe God is not a trinity. Jesus, therefore is not God, like most traditional Christians believe. They believe that Jesus is his only direct creation and everything else was created by means of Christ. Followers do not bear arms, donate blood or organs, celebrate birthdays and other holidays because they believe they have pagan origins.

Other celebrity Jehovah’s Witnesses include Serena Williams, Terrance Howard and the late Prince.
