comment Is cheating in a test an Averah?
As explained here (aish.com/ci/be/48954356.html?mobile=yes) Rav Moshe Feinstein says it could even be actual stealing, since you are stealing from future employers to whom you have misrepresented yourself. (Igros moshe choshen mishpat II 30)

@Salmononius2 but does absurdity of a claim discount a (sincere) question on this site?

comment Missionary gave me these Talmudic quotes; Does it prove that Goyim are viewed as Animals who should be harassed, and that christians will go to hell?
One possible issue with this question that I think is keeping it from getting an answer is that it's hard to address all the cases above together, as they each have an individual explanation.

Think about it, we treat our family different than we treat random people on the street.

At least the quote about returning lost objects is a legal point, not a moral point per se. I have heard it explained that there are certain law that are in place because we must treat everyone as humans. There are certain ones, such as returning lost objects, that are not morally required because of treating people as humans but because we have a higher level obligation to our family. Jews are our family but Christians aren't. So it isn't that we exclude Christians from returning lost objects, rather there is just not reason to add them in the first place.
