Don't be fooled between character and an act. A person who is truly good-hearted will be kind to everyone, not just the people they stand to gain something from. A person who is truly kind will feel remorse for causing pain, and they will try to make it right.
For all of those devout christians out there, start walking the walk, I've met many people who are more in line with Jesus's teachings (forgiveness, kindness, respect for ALL) than some of the quick to judge christians. I think this applies to so many people out there, in so many applications.
