ubuntu christian edition is not created by canonical and is not supported and we can't predict what kind of things they may be done to the base ubuntu setup to cause this,
personally i would try running 'sudo apt-get update' and then 'sudo apt-get upgrade' in a terminal (terminal is found in Applications menu -> Accessories -> Terminal)

if that does not work i would consider installing the offical version of ubuntu

Can you help with this problem?
