Passage: Alma 16:46 - Alma 16:66
46 And then Alma saith unto him: "Believest thou that there is a God?" And he answered: "Nay."
47 Now Alma saith unto him: "If ye deny again that there is a God, and also deny the Christ- For behold, I say unto you, I know there is a God, and also that Christ shall come-
48 And now what evidence have ye that there is no God, or that Christ cometh not? I say unto you that ye have none, save it be your word only;
49 But behold, I have all things as a testimony that these things are true, And ye also have all things as a testimony unto you that they are true; And will ye deny them?
50 "Believest thou that these things are true?
51 Behold, I know that thou believest, But thou art possessed with a lying spirit; And ye have put off the Spirit of God, that it may have no place in you, But the devil hath power over you; And he doth carry you about, working devices that he may destroy the people of God."
52 And now Korihor saith unto Alma: "If thou wilt show me a sign that I may be convinced that there is a God, Yea, show unto me that He hath power, And then will I be convinced of the truth of thy words."
53 But Alma saith unto him: "Thou hast had signs enough; Will ye tempt your God? Will ye say, 'Show unto me a sign,' when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethren, and also all the holy prophets?
54 "The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and call things denote there is a God- Yea, even the earth and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion,
55 Yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form doth witness that there is a Supreme Creator; And yet do ye go about leading away the hearts of this people, testifying unto them there is no God? And yet will ye deny against all these witnesses?"
56 And he said: "Yea, I will deny except ye shall show me a sign."
57 And now it came to pass that Alma said unto him: "Behold, I am grieved because of the hardness of your heart, Yea, that ye will still resist the Spirit of the truth that thy soul may be destroyed;
58 But behold, it is better that thy soul should be lost than that thou shouldst be the means of bringing many souls down to destruction by thy lying and by thy flattering words;
59 Therefore, if thou shalt deny again, Behold, God shall smite thee, that thou shalt become dumb, that thou shalt never open thy mouth anymore, that thou shalt not deceive this people anymore."
60 Now Korihor saith unto him: "I do not deny the existence of a God, but I do not believe that there is a God; And I say also that ye do not know that there is a God, And except ye show me a sign, I will not believe."
61 Now Alma saith unto him: "This will I give unto thee for a sign-that thou shalt be struck dumb according to my words; And I say that in the name of God that ye shall be struck dumb, that ye shall no more have utterance."
62 Now when Alma had said these words, Korihor was struck dumb, that he could not have utterance according to the words of Alma.
63 And now when the chief judge saw this, he put forth his hand and wrote unto Korihor, saying: "Art thou convinced of the power of a God?
64 In whom did ye desire that Alma should show forth His sign? Would ye that He should afflict others to show unto thee a sign?
65 Now behold, He hath showed unto you a sign, And now, will ye dispute more?"
66 And Korihor put forth his hand and wrote, saying: "I know that I am dumb, for I cannot speak; And I know that nothing, save it were the power of God, could bring this upon me, Yea, and I always knew that there was a God.
