The Great Lawgiver
Alma posed asked his son a profound question in the Book of Mormon, "How could he sin if there was no law?"- Alma 42:17 If good and evil exist there must be a law upon which these concepts are predicated. Lehi also had some interesting thoughts concerning this matter, "And if ye shall say there is no law, ye shall also say there is no sin. If ye shall say there is no sin, ye shall also say there is no righteousness. And if there be no righteousness there be no happiness. And if there be no righteousness nor happiness there be no punishment nor misery. And if these things are not there is no God."-2 Nephi 2:13 In conclusion there is no God without a law of good and evil and inversely I would say that there is no good and evil without a God to lay down these laws.
