Actually, yes, kinda. I've been reading the Bible for my summer reading and in Genesis 9, He admits to Noah that He will never kill the population again. The first attempt of making the world, the people turned evil after Adam and Eve disobeyed Him. Evil was everywhere. God had to create a mass destruction with everything except some animals and Noah and his family to get rid of this evil. So in a way, yes, God has kinda failed at something the first time He tried.

Look around you, look at the world. Is it perfect? Are we, supposedly his greatest creations, perfect? No, it is isn't, and neither are we, not by a long shot. Fail. Any god who would claim this his work is either indifferent, incompetent or malevolent; though more likely is nonexistent.
Nope. Not without knowing it was going to happen anyhow, and letting it go ahead and happen. Its not failure when you have control of all things and ALLOW stuff to happen anyway because others make it that way. If someone or something messes up something youve done thats on them not on you first of all. And then you say 'well, i can fix that but thats how they want it so ill just leave it'. Thats a deliberate act not failure. God doesnt fail but the human race dies all the time my misusing our free will and God lets it happen because of that free will. Any and all 'failure' in Gods creation is totally on us. All of it happened because of us.
God is always right- He is never wrong. When God does something; it is not right because He did it, it is right because it is right. God is perfect in all His ways. It is not good because God chose it, therefore it must be good! God chose it because it is good, God wills it because it is good, it?s not good simply because he wills it or chose it to be. God is not arbitrary or capricious. He knows the greater good because He alone possesses all knowledge. All of nature shows this to be true. Order is of the greater design and objective, chaos is not. To preserve life is the greater good, to take life is not, (exceptions are the rarity). This is because all morals and ethics flow from His moral nature. So while God is all-powerful he cannot act or think contrary to His perfect eternal unlimited nature, which is the ultimate standard of moral good. as Jesus said - there is none good but God.(cont in comments)
First failure is to supply adequate evidence of his/her/its/their existence. And if we are talking about the Judeo-Christian concept of god, then I would submit that the scriptural evidence that he created evil is a failure on his part. In Isaiah 45:7 it is written, "I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things."
All fall short of the glory of God. We fail to live up to His holiness and this is why He sent His Son. A Sinless offering to pay for our sins. It was our sinful nature that put Jesus on the cross. Remember everything was perfect until Adam and Eve sinned. God walked with us daily. But because we sin He gave His son. Loved us so much He sacrificed His only Son for us. God doesnt make mistakes, we do. The wage of sin is death, death is separation from God. Man makes mistakes, man creates sin. God didnt create the gays no more then He created murderers. We did, we screw up. He is perfect and He showed that through His Son. He also knows what we go through for the devil even tempted Jesus. But He didnt sin. Therefor through Christ we can per server, we have a choice. Now its up to you.
The entire history of the biblical god has been a complete failure! Let us see:
God created the world, a man and a woman - put them in a garden. Then the serpent deceived them, and they were cursed and cast out.
God had failed to protect his prized creation.?
Then God tried for about 1600 years to civilize his children. They kept growing worse and worse, until this merciful God sent the flood and drowned all the people except Noah and his family, 08 in all.?
Then God started again, and changed the diet of his children from vegetarians to non-vegetarians.
Then God failed again, as men built the Tower of Babel.
Finding that He could not succeed with all children, God tried to play favorites with a few, and selected Abraham and his descendants, as "chosen people".
Again God failed, after his chosen people were captured by the Egyptians and enslaved for 400 years.?
Then God tried again - rescued his chosen people from Pharaoh, led them to Palestine, and again changed their diet to reform them. Again God failed, as His chosen people preferred the Golden Calf over God. So God kept them wandering, and then tried again.
God took them into Palestine and gave Judges to govern them.
God then tried with Kings, who were mostly idolaters and adulterers.
Again God had failed. The chosen people were carried into captivity by the Babylonians, while on God's watch.
When they returned, God tried to reform them by Prophets, but yet the chosen people grew worse and worse.
Another failure of God.
Having exhausted all other options, God, at last, was compelled to took upon flesh, born of a virgin, increased in knowledge, and lived among the same people that he had been trying to civilize for 4000 years.
Then these people following the law that God had given them in the OT, convicted this Half God-Half Man - Christ - with blasphemy; and killed him.
Again God had failed. Then he deserted the chosen people and turned his attention to the rest of his children, specially to gentiles.
Then, after being dead, God inspired a few conspicuous men to claim that God didn't die, but actually sacrificed himself in his divine scheme to bore our sins - which, of course we didn't commit - that the blood of God was an atonement for the sins of all who might believe on him.
God had failed again.
Today, two-thirds of mankind refuses to believe in this scheme called Christianity.
And now the chosen people, after being deserted and left alone by God, persecuted by Christians, are the most prosperous people on the earth.?
Joshua 23:14 says "Not one word out of all the good words that Jehovah your God has spoken to you has failed. They have all come true for you. Not one word of them has failed." This proves that everything Jehovah God says is going to happen, will happen. No exceptions. Hebrews 6:18 says that it is "impossible for God to lie", so we know from this that anything he promises will come true. He is always true to his word since there is no other option.

The bible bragging on it's self that its God has never failed is not evidence that he has not. it's easy when prophecies are given after the fact. most of the ones given prior to the events in the bible have failed.
God, has never failed anything, not even the things that are going on in the world, although God never created war, or hate or anything else in the world that is classified as evil, He does not keep it from happening, because of a gift He has given us, free will, Why doe He give us free will to do whatever we want? Because He is a loving God who will never treat us like robots, what if He did not give us free will, but programmed into us a program of extreme obedience where we all had to do what He wanted, how He wanted it? Wouldn't that be horrible? Especially if there are people out there who choose not to believe in God, and they had to obey their programming, wouldn't that be worse? But out of God's love He chooses not to be a dictator and treat us like robots, so the world has free will, but a lot of the world chooses their free will to start wars, and kill each other. But this is nothing God has failed at, because wouldn't it be a bigger failure to treat us like robots? God gave us the power of free will, but it is what people do with the power that causes their own failure. God never fails us, we fail Him by choosing to use our gift of free will for evil instead of good.
was god there when children a born with diseases and die?, if he is perfect in everything then why do we all suffer with diseases and god not help us, bet christians will say it is all because sin, sin has nothing to do with diseases
No, God has never failed at anything. Have you ever contemplated the response Almighty God gave to Job - when Job challenge God in respects to his uprightness and faithfulness - begin reading from Job Chapter 38: forward. Take your time and truly contemplate on what Almighty God is truly saying in respects to his capabilities.
