SERMONS #53 – Voodoo Children of Israel (6/11/23)

30:39 – Like all good furniture movers, the Israelites wrapped their furniture in protective coverings before heading off down the road. But how do you cover an altar that is supposed to maintain an eternal flame? And how do the movers transport items that will kill them if they touch them, or perhaps if they even look at them? Dave in Kentucky analyzes this logistical nightmare, as well as the Sotah Ritual, a voodoo-like curse by which a man could purportedly determine if his wife had been cheating on him. Was this superstitious claptrap, or clever psychology?
