“Except Ye Show Me a Sign I Will Not Believe”

Alan C. Miner

It is interesting that in the two recorded instances of people who demanded a sign from God (Sherem -- Jacob 7:13, and Korihor -- Alma 30:43,48) both the men who made the demands suffered death. Additionally, "many" of the Zoramites were alluded to as asking for a sign (see Alma 32:17). These Zoramites not only died spiritually (they became Lamanites), but many were probably killed in the insuing war. [Alan C. Miner, Personal Notes]
