Today on the truthXchange podcast, Joshua discusses Mormonism and paganism with two ex-Mormons who are now professing believers in the Christian faith.
Jungian spirituality has seduced the masses. Jung’s personal practice of occultism and sexual freedom, presented as a “scientific” method, gave vast authority to the subconscious. People today justify all kinds of pagan spiritualities and sexual fantasies in the name of self-expression and spiritual health.
