on't think God ever gave an unjust command. I try to obey all His commands. It's hard, but I really do try.

Most (if not all) "unjust commands from God" aren't really from God, they are from unjust men who are using God to get their way or who misunderstand what God intended.

The question at first is hypothetical , so it matters little wether God did or did not give an unjust command .
So in that sense the question remains relevant : would you obey an unjust command given by God ?

What say you of the binding of Isaac by Moses to be used as human sacrifice , an abominable practice which we later see manifest in the crucifixtion of Jesus .

you should really learn your bible inside and out before coming down hard on your creator, esp. for stuff that happened many many moons ago and which pro'lly won't happen again, and definitely not happening to you. the question you should be asking is to yourself, whether or not YOU would do it. peace bro Wink

You also have to consider something else.  How do we know what is a command of God and what is not?  After all, many men have tried to interpret and understand what God intends and wants.
 
And here is an interesting thing to consider if you are talking Christianity here:  Jesus, the son of God, was quoted in the Bible, but never wrote anything in the Bible.  So even if He was/is the Son of God, every section was written by man based on the history and culture of the time, which happened to include the practice of human sacrifice.  That means that every section of the Bible is subject to man's interpretation of God. 
 
If the Bible were written today, it would still have the same message from God preaching love and peace and how to live a better life, but would sound different because of a different culture and history, yet the truths would remain the same.
 
And if you look at other religions, and boil away the history, the culture, the characters, you will find that all religions teach the same things.  To me, that is proof that there must be a God.
 
In the end, you have to follow your heart and grow your spirituality and in doing so you will get closer to God.
