All things denote there is a God.

I was reading in the scriptures today and wanted to share something that I really liked.

In the Book of Mormon there is a book named after the prophet Alma. In Alma chapter 30 the prophet is speaking with a man named Korihor. I guess you could say Korihor is an atheist, the scriptures actually describe him as an anti-Christ. Korihor goes around from city to city trying to convince people that there is no God and that individuals who align themselves with religion or a belief in God are foolish. Rather than being defensive of his religion and that of the people in his city and fighting with Korihor, the prophet Alma calmly converses with him. In verse 44 of the book of Alma is my favorite quote from the prophet. He explains to Korihor, "All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which do move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator." 
I love this scripture. I believe that we can find proof of a loving Heavenly Father if we take the time to look around us and take in some of the beauty in this world. One of my favorite things of all time is to be in the mountains. Whether I'm camping, hiking, 4 wheeling, or simply going for a walk in the mountains I feel closer to my Father in Heaven. I feel God's love for me as I explore and discover the beauty around me. That is why this is one of my favorite scriptures from the Book of Mormon.
