The Creation of the Earth

     After our counsel in heaven, Jesus Christ, under the direction of God the Father, created the earth. If we, as God's children, were going to get a body and gain experiences that would help us become like and eventually have the opportunity to live with our Heavenly Father, we needed a place to go where we could accomplish those goals. Therefore, an Earth was created. 
     This whole earth was specifically created for all mankind to come and dwell upon and to have dominion over the inhabitants of it. There is a scripture I like that talks about the Lord creating the earth and one of the main reasons why. The verse is found in the Book of Mormon, in the book of 1 Nephi Chapter 17 verse 36 and it reads, "Behold, the Lord hath created the earth that it should be inhabited; and he hath created his children that they should possess it." 
     I know that there is a Supreme Being who literally created this earth, specifically for us to come and dwell upon. When in the outdoors just looking all around at all the beauty of the earth, to me, there is just no way that there could NOT be a Creator of this earth. There is no way that everything just "magically" happened. This earth was in fact created by our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father. Just take a look around you and and ponder about all the mountains, trees, animals and all of earth's natures and you too will come to the realization that there is a Greater Being out there who lives and created this wonderful earth.
