Did heaven and hell betray Christianity?

If we found out that our neighbour visited someone who was ill, or fed someone who was hungry, simply because they were going to receive a monetary reward for it, we would never look kindly on that act.  We would not say it was good, it would be viewed as selfishness – a calculated pulling of the strings in order to manipulate benefits for oneself.

But if someone converts to Christianity in order to receive eternal life, we don’t seem to mind at all.
