Prove To Me That God Exists!


Over the course of my life I have had a number of conversations with individuals who challenge the existence of a supreme being. They want some kind of proof that a God exists.

A number of years ago I took some church youth on a short hike. Prior to the hike I had gone up the trail  a distance and took my wrist watch off and placed it under a tree by the side of the trail and then returned to lead the group. As we came upon my watch, which was clearly visable to everyone, one of the youth picked it up and exclaimed, “Someone lost their watch!”  I replied that perhaps they were wrong in their assumption and that the watch had simply formed itself over the course of many years. A lengthy conversation ensued with the determination that it would be foolish to believe that the watch had just formed itself and that it was clear it was a man-made product.  I admitted that the watch was mine and then we talked for some time about the  world and, that like the watch, the imprint of a supreme being could be found in all aspects of its creation. The watch, like the world, had not simply come together without the help of an intelligence.  I was only echoing the words of Alma when he was challenged regarding the existence of God. he replied:

“…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 move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.” (Alma 30:44)

It has never  been hard for me to believe that there is a God.  I also have full faith that he is a personal God who has an interest in our lives and our destiny.  I believe we are literally sons and daughters of this Being and that he is the father of our spirits. That may be hard for some to accept, but nevertheless, it is not without reason or logic.

In the end there is an argument to be made on both sides of the issue regarding diety. However, I choose to believe in a Heavenly Father because I feel there is logic to my beliefs, and I have faith in the testimonies of the prophets.  I also believe that life has a purpose and that mankind’s destiny is celestial, the proof of which is simply the powerful spiritual feelings that are deeply embedded in my soul.
