In taking a closer look at your postulations about religions (yet having responded to only a couple) it comes to mind that there are more questions still needing answers than ones already being answered in your mind. This may be a misreading, but that is how this reader has concluded in some thoughts about what has been written. In that there is still the sense that you have not reached the correct knowledge about Jesus Christ, it is suggested here that opinion cannot bring knowledge about Jesus Christ, but understanding Him in Truth shall.

Jesus Christ did not fail; has not failed; never will fail. Any human perception of failure in the message that Jesus Christ brought to the world comes not from the sufficiency of the message to accomplish what was intended, but the failure lies with the inability of human understanding to comprehend the message and how embracing the message in the spirit intended does bring a person into the truth of the revelation that Jesus Christ is who He said He was (and is), and that in that knowledge, any question one might suppose to ask Almighty God begins with that knowledge as basis for every answer sought. It is written, you have not because you ask not.

Therefore to understand Almighty God and what He desires for you to know about Him for a better life for yourself through Jesus Christ requires that you ask Him to teach you, and not to try and understand Him without seeking His help. That being accomplished, then there is nothing held back in seeking Almighty God and His rightful place in each person's life that seeks Him out.

As to Almighty God being good-natured; first, one must correctly define good-natured, whether in human terms, or in spiritual terms. Once that has been correctly determined, then the need to ask the question becomes academic, for human terms (bathed in sentimentality) can never rise to the spiritual terms such as found found in the Holy Bible, and human logic fails every time it tries to argue against divine knowledge.

Therefore the goodness of Almighty God cannot be described in human terms, but instead it is found in His Holiness and Righteousness.
