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?

Actually in my opinion our Judicial system is very well made. They debated the crap out of every matter.

We do our best now to try to keep order in a corrupt world but we will do a better job when Jesus returns to clean up this mess we made.

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?

The Kingdom of God will not be initiated until Christ returns, the Second time. The Millennial Kingdom will be when Christ rules with an iron fist. You who, now, choose, to disbelieve will be made to believe. Many people say why doesn't God rule over us now? He does so out of love. In the Millennial Kingdom, all people... More
