Don't these two things conflict? How can you claim to be a Christian, yet not help the needy? How can you claim to be a Christian yet give authorization for war and killings of other people. How can you claim to be a Christian yet not allow religion in schools? I know there are many more examples, but can anyone explain any of these to me? In the Heaven that I thought I was going to are we not supposed to spread the word of God? I don't know, I am a bit lost about all this, I just don't understand how all those politicians claim to be Christians and yet do so many things that, at leats on the surface, appear to be un-Christian like.
