Should a Christian go to war, which obviously would entail the killing of others?

What's in the heart? Would you be going cause you like to destroy? Would you be going because you aren't sure if God would protect your nation? Would you be going with the concept that God is guiding you in protecting your nation, and that this is how He wants it done in this particular case? 
    Only you can decide depending on what you believe (are sure about) in your heart at this time in your Christian growth -Romans 14:23 "And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith. For whatsoever is not of faith is sin." 
    Belief is different for everyone; God doesn't want clones. Nor will God hold your own particular beliefs against you -Romans 8:1,2 "There is therefore now no condemnation-to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."

How did Noah get all those animals into the ark? -Genesis 6:19,20 "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."

To accommodate the massive flood soon to occur (way back then) the ark was about as large as the Titanic. It was 437 feet long, 73 feet wide and 44 feet high.
    There are only 300 species of land mammals known to science which are larger than a sheep, and almost three times as many are not any larger than a house cat. Noah was instructed to take two of every kind, not two of every variety. For example, two cats, two dogs; not two Collies, two poodles, etc.
    The same ratio God instructed (6 to 1) Noah to use, is used today as the optimum for construction of large ocean going vessels.

Does the Bible condone slavery?

It talks about it, but doesn't condone it. In the last book of the Bible, Revelation chapters 17 and 18, God deals harshly with an evil world system that perpetuates slavery.

What is a saint?

A saint is one who is in the family of God--Ephesians 3:18.
    A saint is a sinner who has been accepted by the Father, thanks to Jesus Christ. He then has been placed in a state of righteousness by having all sin removed that hitherto had separated him from this relationship with the Father, therefore enabling a continuous state of sonship with the Father.

Are there exaggerations in the Bible?

On the contrary, rather than using overstatements, the Bible tends to understate. An example (when there, click on the 'burnt Hazor with fire' link).

Why does the Bible talk of more than one heaven?

The three heavens are: where God is, the third heaven.
    The 'second heaven' would be -the starry heavens -Deuteronomy 17:3; Jeremiah 8:2; Matthew 24:29.
    And the first-(from our perspective anyway)-heaven would be our atmosphere from where Jesus disappeared much higher into the third heaven from, and into which Satan was cast -Acts 1:11 "Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."
