I see what you are saying. I was not thinking of God having faith (that would be
subjective genitive). Rather, I was thinking of the genitive of source as one
option. "Have faith of God" could possibly mean something like: Have the faith
(in God) that comes from God or is inspired by God in you. The "faithfulness of
God" option is ruled out in Mark 11:22 by the context. For the "love of God"
phrase, I believe the genitive of source is a valid option is several places.
