Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres, making it one-eighth the size of New York's Central Park. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head.

Most people who identify as Christian (In the truest sense of the word)? You'll likely never know what they did for another living soul because it isn't about glorifying themselves or receiving accolades of any kind. It's about far more. There are indeed those out there that do not walk the walk of a Christian as there are in anything. It's not something unique to "The Christians".

so theres a country run by christians? which one?
how did you become an authority on what constitutes christian behavior and responsibilities?
As to the verses regarding accepting strangers within your borders. That was in the context of ancient Israel wasnt it? Please tell me what ancient Israel was doing in the desert for 80 years? Thats right.....slaughtering every pagan child sacrificing tribe in existence. You still wanna talk about accepting strangers? Should we talk about the conditions those strangers had to meet to be welcome? Or do you think the God that forbade Israel from even mixing fibers together in a piece of clothing would not have prescribed very stringent preconditions for coming under the protection of Israels borders and their God?
you know nought of what you speak my friend.

Those aren't Christian solutions. A Christian solution would be just accepting these people into your country, no questions asked.

Yes I would.
I was raised by them, and am surrounded by them and was one.
Pretending they help but don't talk about it, is well just an excuse, convenient.
