Mitzvah #35 - Not enticing others to worship idols

It's forbidden to entice others - individuals or a group - to worship idols.

One who tries to persuade others to worship idols gets put to death by stoning, even if nobody actually worshiped idols.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Pasuk: "If he shall entice you... to worship foreign gods..." (Devorim 13:7-12)
