KINGSTON, Jamaica – Saturdays are reserved for many things and Evangelist Godfrey Williams made it very clear to patrons making their way to the National Stadium for the final day of the 2023 Boys’ and Girls’ Athletics Championships where the focus should be.
“You should be at church right now worshipping God in the beauty of holiness and instead you are here at Champs desecrating God’s holy day of rest,” Williams said via speakerphone at the entrance of the stadium as persons streamed inside on Saturday.
He directed his address to Adventist who may have been breaking their Sabbath for the entertainment spectacle of Champs.
“Seventh Day Adventist, go back home and keep the Sabbath holy… You should be at home or at church worshipping the God in the beauty of holiness…. today is not a day for pleasure, not a day for sports … you should repent,” Williams said.
