A largely rhetorical question

Is it possible to read the Gospels and the epistles, and come to the conclusion that Christ ever intended us to invent the species known as “canon lawyer?” I don’t mean to imply that canon lawyers are bad people, or unnecessary. But I can’t help but wonder how, with the Truth of Christ as our sword and the Holy Spirit as our armor, we still managed to go so far wrong as to have to invent canon law and a whole class of citizens to interpret it for us.
