Mitzvah #34 - Do not listen to false prophets

It's a Mitzva to not listen to those who utter prophesies in the name of idols.

One may not listen to them, engage them in dialogue or ask them for a sign or proof.

Even if they do a miraculous sign, one may not believe them, and anybody who suspects that they are true prophets has transgressed this Mitzva.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Pasuk: "Do not listen to that prophet" (Devorim 13:4)
