Verse 16 of 1 Peter chapter one states that we must be holy in ALL manner of conduct because Yahweh (God) is holy. Bible culture demands from us fear (reverence) to God in everything we do. When most of the activities of Carnival are carefully examined, it can be seen that they do nothing for the spiritual man, covering the eyes from Christ and his coming. There are sexually connotative soca songs, vulgar dancing, immodest costumes and the triumph of drunkenness. It is indeed frightening that there is a created atmosphere, especially by soca artistes, which welcomes ill-behaviour and irreverence as glorious. The Bible says to “â¦abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soulâ â 1Peter 2:11, but the spirit of Carnival is only shown to feed upon soul destructive lusts. Donât they know that idolaters, drunkards and revellers shall not inherit the kingdom of God? (See Gal 5:20, 21). Hence, the counsel from the scripture is to separate yourselves from such activities. Despise them! Renounce them! Let God free you of their unholy influence and prepare yourselves for the second advent of Christ. This extravaganza, though it may be viewed to have socio-economic benefits to the country, only unreadies the soul for such a great glorious event. It is Vincentian culture, but not Godâs. We ought to live by Godâs grace, which hath appeared unto all men, “teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Yahshua (Jesus) Christ;ââ Titus 2:12,13. Vincentians, if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve â whether through indulgence in Carnival you will serve the god of idolatry, or the god of drunkenness or the god of revelling in the land that you dwell “â¦but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORDââ Joshua 24:15.
