Learning the unadulterated truth about God is not going to a concert or to be entertained as these do. I can name one key component in this Pentecostal denomination that will disqualify it as having favor in God. I guarantee you that 8 out of 10 that attend practice some form of sexual immorality such as sex outside marriage, homosexuality , adultry.1Cor 6:9, 10; Romans 1:18-32; James 2:14-26 just to name a few. The Bible says to not even be in the company of such people. 1 Cor 5:1, 9-12. These are just a few of the things that this denomination tolorates. However, this is not just limited to this denomination which means division. 1 cor 1:10-19 The Bible speaks of being united in one mind & thought but yet there are evendufferent denominations of Oentecostals having different teaching which are not united in one mind & thought. If I am wrong please, defend your stance with scripture & deeds?

go to a Pentacostal Church and trust that it'll be lively. Google one for nearby locations, you won't be disappointed.

I think it would be better looking for real Christians over in Saudi Arabia or Afganistan or some place where Christian hypocrisy is not so rampant.

"Our father who art in heaven, hallow be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth as it is in heavem. ". The issue about God's kingdom seems settled in the Lord's prayer. Jesus said to pray this way. Heaven is always but the earthly kingdom is yet to come.
TextThe only thing I would leave you with on this thought is to remember that none of us go to this new Kingdom until the end, when the last resurrection happens. You can see from the last verses of John 2 that Jesus would not entrust himself to those who came to him for salvation. Why? John 3. They had to be born again. We are the ones released from the pit. When Christ returns, even those who pierced him will be present. Today, all 7+ billion of us are here to see this happen. Even old Job knew this way back in Job 19. With his own eyes and not another.
so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
You cant have it both ways - Jesus followed the Law - Paul the Imposter wrote another story - to include Gentiles without circumcision.
