Next Lesson: What Is a Soul?

Have you ever wondered about your soul and what it is?   There are some who really enjoy good soul music or soul food but what is the soul?   Can the soul exist apart from the body and is it a living entity in and of itself?   At a seance, are dead souls of loved ones speaking or are they spirits of something else?   Lesson 10 will show the true meaning of what the soul is.   It will also explore how satan will deceive the nations during the end-time generation through demonic spiritualism.   He will take advantage of the wide spread ignorance of what the Bible really teaches about it!
