Simple question: If god wants to save our souls and have us all there in his kingdom playing happy families, why not just do it? he is god.
Like in the last book of the Scripture says that He is knocking on many doors. If you want to open that door, it is your free will to do it, if you don't want to open it, it is your free will as well.

Plenty of great messages are much older and still going strong. The golden rule for example. They didn't need a sacrifice to accomplish it, what is the point of that part is what I don't understand.
I thought you meant to ask why God seems to have to follow some rules as if there is something more powerful out there.
Rules or law, or however you want to think about it. Do this, don't do that, and you get to spend forever with me in heaven.

my computer has no viruses dwelling on a disk.
"evil", my friend, is nothing but a qualification.
in the external reality, things just are.
it's us human beans who feel the need to add attributes that phenomena that doesn't need these qualifications.
the same of course goes for "good"
and in my world, this is also true for "god"... it's a concept, originated in a feeble mind longing for certainties that aren't available.
