The Red and the Blue...

Should be treated as apolitical. Basically this is a thought I've had laying around since my Senior year of college, at least. Now it comes out! Hopefully the graphs do all the talking so I won't have to. The case I didn't visualize, where the faith community is off on its own tangent, and the red and black lines converge, is definitely in some "bad" category. Where would you put it?
More graph-themed posts will be coming!

You know my protest... How can you know?

I actually have no idea. Not sure how I'd know.

What is the fundamental difference in the graphs labeled 'Worse' and 'Awful'?

As to your question in the post, I would put said graph between the 'Bad' and the 'Good' graph, as ultimately it is good that you are going toward what God wants you to be. I would classify it as 'Okay' or perhaps 'Somewhat Good'.

Worse is when the faith community X and the person Y have the same vision for the person, but God (G) has a different vision.

Awful is when the X, Y and G all have different visions--that is, not only does God disagree with both the community and the person, the community and person don't even agree with each other. Which I guess might make it better than the "worse" situation in terms of how fixable it is.

I would place the graph between 'bad' and 'good' also, I think. Naming it's another matter because it seems much better for you and God than the community, and all three factor into the situation; as such, if the community is bad, I feel weird calling the situation 'good'--'okay' would be the most I'd give it.
