Love, forgiveness and repent. Sinning, covering it up and lying, lot easier. Course, that's why they go to church on sunday, ask forgiveness, start all over again Monday.
The use of salt may help you out ..ie. Most politicians claim to speak for the people . There may be some that actually do just as there may be some who actually speak for God ... Its through reading and studying the Bible which is the word of God that you have a example to separate the wheat from the chaff . Plus it helps expose the real frauds who are quite cunning ,much like some politicians .
My problem is people who are pretending to speak for God.
Why do the people who worship Jesus behave nothing like his teachings
Also, I would think Christians would also be against the death penalty more than they seem to be. Being against the death penalty seems to be more consistent with being anti-abortion.

Don't look so much to the teachings of others or the current dogma in organized religion. Keep it simple. Read the beatitudes and sermon on the mount. Thats how we're supposed to behave towards one another.
That's kind of my point. People idolize the words "Jesus Christ" but they hardly ever quote the Beatitudes.
