Church was never meant to be fun or entertaining. Not on Holidays, not on special occasions . . . Church should be almost painfully poignant. Paul didn't write to the churches saying "Everything's hunkydory;" he wrote in brutal honesty. The truth is rarely inoffensive, and it weeds out the phonies. If it's offensive, let it be offensive. We should invite unbelievers lovingly, but we shouldn't water down the Word of God so as to appease them.
‘a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’
Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it."
2 Timothy 4:2-6
