The Hero As God's Champion

I was in the audience for this one.  This is always an interesting topic for me -- when I was playing D&D, I would join the group, annouce that I will willing to play the cleric -- and played one.  

Setting up your pantheon to get it to work.  And how powerful is the god whose champion you are, anyway?  And you have the issue of how much free will your character has got.  Especially when you have questions of how often you bring the god on stage and how clearly.
