* '''Deconstructed''': Good or not, people still find reasons to RageAgainstTheHeavens, to say nothing of people like the SinisterMinister and FalseProphet, both of whom distort the perception of God in the world. Plus, there's no shortage of evil people in the world (up to and including a CompleteMonster), so [[CrisisOfFaith how good can God really be?]]

** On the villainous side, a SinisterMinister gets away with his actions because he claims to serve God... and God is Good, right?

* '''Reconstructed''': There still exists a being that wants what's best for the world, even if that includes bastardly humans. Things may look bleak now... but HopeSpringsEternal.

* '''Zig Zagged''': On one day God sends a BoltOfDivineRetribution to defeat the MonsterOfTheWeek; the next day he's missing entirely. The day after that he sends a HolyHandGrenade and the day after that he does nothing but tell a GoodShepherd to fix the problem.

** God would've been fired had He been [[GodIsEvil evil]] or [[JerkassGods a dick]].

** ...but since God is in charge of everything, creation has no right to question Him.

** God regularly grants the heroes supernatural aid to fight evil but never enough to vanquish it. He doesn't tell them why and berates them for questioning Him. This creates daily conflict within TheTeam and eventually leads to betray, abandonment and death. God later explains His OmniscientMoralityLicense; the betrayal was to convert enemies, the abandonment was to create allies for GondorCallsForAid and the death for [[CameBackStrong coming back stronger.]] Some of the heroes call Him out for this.
