May it not be that, just as we have to have faith in Him, God has to have faith in us and, considering the history of the human race so far, may it not be that ''faith'' is even more difficult for Him than it is for us?

Anther hokey title, but the game immediately gives me the impression that it can promise more because it seems to be thoughtful and well written. I’m a little dismayed that I’ve been dropped off for a hush-hush mission, a really good-looking super spy, and I have no inventory. None. No ball point pens that serve as grenades, no belt with hidden repelling gear, nothing. Jane Bond I am not. Oh well... who needs grenades and repelling gear when an automated-guess-the-word-finder is what you truly need to complete the mission? Sadly, within the first five minutes I found myself in two really frustrating situations because the parser didn’t understand me. I am no newbie to playing IF, so by now I expect games to understand me (a mistake, I know). I kept going, though, determined to give this game a chance because of the initial impression it made upon me, and found myself resorting to the walkthrough - not to determine what to do, but what exact words were necessary to achieve a certain task. I finally just got frustrated and gave up.
