The Catholic church deals with them as separate events, each with its own answer. Let's take the story of Abraham in Genesis 22. You talk about it as cruel. But how did Abraham see it? He simply expected God to raise Isaac from the dead. He believed in a great God who would keep His promises made earlier about Isaac. From Abraham's perspective, it wasn't ...

I have never found a satisfactory Catholic explanation of God's cruel nature depicted in the Old Testament, a depiction that is real enough for early gnostic Christians to believe the Old Testament God must surely be a different God to that of the New Testament.

The scripture says if we blaspheme the Holy Spirit we shall not be forgiven in this world or the world to come. Blaspheme means to speak irreverently of. Now worship means to revere, so if we are not revering the Holy Spirit we are blaspheming him.
