    Because it's in his nature also to delegate authority to beings that work in his creation. God is a respecter of the sovereignty, he delegates.

    Might as well ask why we were created. I'm not exactly Unitarian or Trinitarian. I don't believe that mere mortals are capable of defining God in any specific number of dimensions and manifestations. Oneness and polytheistic views of Divinity are merely shades of the spectrum.
