    Probably the same reason He needs humans to pass laws against blasphemy, to punish anyone who hurts His feelings. After all, you can't expect an all powerful God to do the stuff He wants done Himself, can you?

    He just wants humans to do it, because they would need to ... and because they are capable to do it themselves (if they wanted to), I think.

    Thus demonstrating that Christians have no need for the Bible or theological leadership. They are quiet adept at knowing the mind of god and understanding his intent, methods, and purpose on their own.

    The problem being that they seem completely blind to the fact that this is because His intent, methods, and purpose are their own.

    I like the way you're all thinking. Along this line, the bible is then therefore... for the non-Christians.

    And a hindrance for Christians since it generally doesn't say what they believe and claim it to say.

    Hmmm, I seem to recall seeing a lot of crucifixes and large pictures of Jesus in Christians' homes. Did these Christians somehow know that god didn't really mean all of the ten commandments? I gotta wonder which of the other commandments he didn't really mean.
