Why have a legal system at all if God supposedly will be the perfect judge after death?
It seems the justice system is quite irrelevant. @ Mark do we really? What happened to take no thought of tomorrow? Or judge not, lest ye be judged?

As Richard Pryon said after recording an album live in a prison, "Thank God for penitentiaries." Some people need to be locked up so as not to harm again.

There is not judgment - that's all crap made up by old guys to make you feel guilty and scared so you'll give money to their silly religions.

Because we still need to be held accountable for our actions on Earth. God judges those who have not spiritually repented.

I believe the correct quote is closer to the following: "Judge not, lest ye be judged by the same measure." We have a legal system because societies need them in order to either maintain themselves or advance to the next stage of acceptable behaviors.

Which legal system are you talking about? The American legal system, with the constant debate of "separation of church and state"? Where is it you live which does not have a legal system? Or are you just directing half-baked nonsense at Christians just to try and show how non-theist you are?

Christians are preparing to rule and reign with Christ Jesus who is God in human flesh. This earth is my trial period and it is a tiny matter compared to what I am looking toward.
