War Against the Darkness 6: Tapping into the Darkness (Deuteronomy 18:9-15)

In Part 6 of the series, we discuss the attempts to tap into dark powers. These attempts we place under the umbrella term "Occult." What are some of these practices? Why are they appealing? Is it all fake or is there anything real going on? And how should the people of God view these practices?

War Against the Darkness 3: The Serpent and the Satan (Ezekiel 28:11-19)
