This article asks: how specifically do features of God's keeping faith and features of our keeping faith differ and correspond? That is, how do we get their interplay right? It analyzes four claims about faith: faith is based on God's actions ad extra, faith is based on a distinction between creator and creature, faith disallows ‘tempting God’, and faith disallows ‘playing God’.

Keywords: Christian faith; creator; tempting God; playing God
