comment How to define an independent interference by God?
I think identifying a "good and perfect gift" often is difficult. Often we do not receive what we want, but rather what we need. In those situations our emotions often make a good and perfect gift appear less than good or perfect. The Bible also tells us that God works all things for the good of those who love the Lord; even things that appear tragic or otherwise "bad," God can turn into "good and perfect gifts."

What would true, independent interpersonal interference 'look' like? How do you know your father (or mother, or spouse, or best friend) treats you they way they do because they love you, and not strictly out of random chance? Every interaction with a loved one 1) can be explained to be a rather unlikely event, but still not proof of love, and 2) is only real to one person.

comment Why would God create beings with the capacity to sin?
@JohannesSchaub-litb: I think most would say the trinity is beyond understanding; not that it actually contradicts logic. There's a very big difference between those two concepts.

comment What is the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit?
@JohannesSchaub-litb: "On a global basis?" I'm not sure precisely what you mean. It seems to me that the Son is the part of the trinity that was "most limited" in the old testament (although there are some who believe even he appeared on some occasions).

comment What is the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit was "within reach" throughout the old testament. It was just on a more limited basis. In fact, the Holy Spirit is mentioned as early as the second verse of the Bible. The Holy Spirit also interacted directly with people on multiple occasions in the OT. And the fact that Matthew 12:31 describes events that took place prior to Pentecost suggests that Jesus believed that blasphemy of the holy spirit was at least a concept worth teaching about prior to Pentecost.
