Wow! I can tell you one thing…the devil did not want this podcast posted. But, God would have the victory. Believe it or not, the website had malfunctioned and a wonderful Christian man helped fix it. Now, why would the devil be against this podcast? Perhaps it is because I am joined by cult and occult expert, Michael Boehm. Michael joins us on a 3-part journey to explore the occult. Michael knows about the occult because he was a practitioner of white magic before God saved him through the grace and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ.
On this first of three episodes on the occult, Michael will define what we mean by the occult. In addition, he will describe the main types of occult practices in the Western world. Finally, Michael will explain the difference between Satanism and Wicca, pentacles and pentagrams. There is a world of difference between the two.
Michael provides the hope found in Jesus for those who are involved in the occult in a non-judgmental and loving fashion. He also will equip believers in knowing how to lovingly confront those found in the occult with the message of Christ. Trust me when I say that this is an episode an a series that you will not want to miss.
About Michael Boehm
Michael Boehm was saved at the age of 24 and started his journey into studying and immersing himself in mastering the bible and apologetics. His life experiences give him unique insight and firsthand knowledge that led him down a path of discovery and learning. First raised as a Roman Catholic and then spending time practicing in the occult, Michael had spent years exploring other religions and the supernatural. Michael eventually was introduced to Christianity and accepted Jesus into his life. Soon after becoming saved, Michael found his faith being challenged not only by those outside of the church, but also by the heretical teachings of the word of faith movement. These challenges led him to study the Bible and apologetics intently for the last 16 years. In March of 2012 Michael launched his ministry, Youth Apologetics Training. The mission of the ministry was to teach difficult apologetics and worldview topics in a way that anyone could understand. Since the founding of Youth Apologetics Training, Michael has recorded over 600 podcast episodes. In these episodes, Michael covers a myriad of topics in full detail to bring his listeners understanding and give them tools they can use in their day to day life. Michael has also recorded over 75 interviews with top level scientists and other experts in the realm of worldviews and apologetics. You can find his teachings on Sermon Audio, iTunes, and at youthapologeticstraining.com.
